The county commission passed the 2013-2014 budget during a special called meeting Tuesday, September 3. Haywood County required $45,170,012 to operate until June 2014.
Photo by Jennifer Willis The original budget was set for $45,165,012, but $5000 was added to item 58500, which is “contributions for other agencies.” That money will be donated to the West Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery. Taxpayers will pay a certiﬁed tax rate of $2.3956, up from last year’s rate of
$2.58. The new rate accounts for reappraisal, but most homeowners will pay about the same amount as they did last year. However, as a result of the increased value of farmland, farmers are expected to pay an average of 25 percent more in taxes. The wheel tax, however,
will remain the same. Some changes for this year’s budget include the addition of three new jailers at the Haywood County Sheriﬀ’s Department. County workers will also have the choice of a raise or a one-time bonus, and those ﬁgures will vary from department to department.
Pratt receives Lifetime Achievement Award
Photo submitted The Tennessee Pest Control Association recently recognized Bobby and Lanette Pratt while at the annual TCPA conference in Sevierville. The Lifetime Achievement recognition was awarded to Bobby and Pratt Termite Pest Control, Inc for his extensive knowledge and years of service and experience in the industry. This award is given to a pest control owner/operator in the entire State of Tennessee, but only one annually. Bobby has served on the Executive Board of the Tennessee Pest
Control Association and also as Region 2 Director for West Tennessee. In 2008, Pratt’s company was voted Best Pest Control Company in Haywood County. Bobby Pratt began working as a termite technician in 1974. In February 1979, Bobby and Lanette opened their own business, Pratt Termite and Pest Control. They started with one employee, Bobby, and no customers. Theirs was the ﬁrst locally owned and operated pest control operation in Brownsville. The geographic boundaries
of the company have grown extensively over the years as they strive to care for all customers. Bobby and Lanette tell their employees that pest control is not a product we are selling; it is about customer service and relationships with customers. Bobby states, “If we treat our customers as family, and how we want people to treat our family, we will continue to grow as they will recommend us to other customers.” This sense of family that is extended to his customers also is displayed in his staﬀ.
His wife, Lanette, is the secretary and has worked in the oﬃce with him since 1980. He and Lanette have been married for 45 years. He also hired his two sonsin-law, Scott Ward and Jake Barr in March 1997. Bobby’s business has also experienced great challenges through the years. Perhaps, the greatest challenge came on March 6, 2000 when his building was completely destroyed by ﬁre. On the same night, his wife suﬀered a heart attack. Bobby stated, “That night, I thought about getting out of the business, but needless to say, when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. The family environment of Pratt Termite shifted into overdrive that night. With the help of our family and friends, I knew we’d be back better than ever.” The business continued working out of a portable oﬃce across the street from the old location for the time it took to rebuild the oﬃce. In September 2000 Pratt Termite celebrated the grand re-opening of their new oﬃce at their present location. Pratt Termite celebrates over 33 years in business and is the oldest pest control company in Brownsville. Bobby will celebrate 40 years of service in the pest control industry in February 2014. He is respected by everyone he knows in the industry. He is an active member in the TPCA. He is an active member
and deacon at Poplar Corner Baptist Church. Through all the good times and bad Bobby and Lanette have built a company that anyone would be proud to have or work for. This is the reason that Bobby Pratt won the Owner/ Operator Lifetime Achievement Award. Bobby stated, “Lanette and I would like to thank the Tennessee Pest Control Association for this award. We are truly humbled. We have deﬁnitely spent a lifetime in the pest control industry and would not be the success we are today without our wonderful family, especially our sons-in-law and our daughters, but most of all, we thank our customers, who we also consider family. Lord willing, we’ll keep on keeping on. God has certainly blessed us and we are so lucky to be a part of Haywood County small businesses. Brownsville is a great place and we are so glad we invested in our community. ” It is evident that Bobby and Lanette’s passion and commitment to the pest control industry will outlive them, and the lives of the people they have touched along the way, and be assured there have been many. Congratulations on your recent award Bobby and Lanette!

The need for food donations never stops. However, while the need increases in summer, the donations to food pantries and soup kitchens often decrease. In an eﬀort to help the 1 in 6 Tennesseans that are at risk of hunger, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Soil Conservation Districts (SCD) partnered with other agencies to collect food donations. U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and other NRCS buildings across the state acted as drop-oﬀ stations for anyone who wanted to
donate nonperishable or dry food goods. The NRCS-run Feds, Farmers, and Friends Feed Families (F5) Food Drive campaign collected 257 pounds of food in Brownsville and Haywood County thanks to federal employees, local farmers, and community friends. These goods were donated to the Brownsville/Haywood County Carl Perkins Center Friday August 30. Beth Wilson, County Director of the Exchange Club – Carl Perkins Center of Haywood County, accepted all the donated goods on behalf of the
Carl Perkins Center. The F5 campaign began in 2009. Since then, Federal workers across the nation have collected and donated 15.2 million pounds of food and other nonperishable items. Each oﬃce that participates in the campaign donates their collected foods locally, which is then distributed to families in need. Last year the campaign collected more than 7.2 million pounds of food for soup kitchens and food pantries. This year the local goal was for each employee to donate and/or collect 25 pounds of food.
Tina Turner Days become annual celebration
Pictured Left: Tina Turner. Center: Tina tribute artist Dorothy Cole will rock the stage of the Ann Marks Performing Arts Center during an evening concert September 28 in Brownsville. Right: Norwegian Bluesman Knut Roppestad will perform during the opening night of Tina Turner Heritage Days, September 27, in Brownsville. Photos submitted What started as a fan celebration honoring Tina Turner’s childhood school, Flagg Grove, has developed into an annual festival observing the heritage and legacy of the international music icon. Tina Turner Heritage Days will be held September 27-28 at the Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville. The event will include tours, concerts and a stew competition. Friday night is Fan Appreciation Night and includes a reception and exhibit of Tina posters. A documentary titled “From Muskogee to Nutbush” will follow. The ﬁlm, made during the 2012 visit to Nutbush by a group of young artist from Muskogee, Ok., creates a parallel between the two cities, including their struggles with adversity and segregation and highlights the common bond that is part of the journey - music. Wrapping up the Friday evening activities
is Norwegian Bluesman Knut Roppestad. Born and raised in Horton, Norway, he began his American adventures in the 1980s and continues to travel and perform in the U.S. at every opportunity. “I’ve been a long-time fan of Tina Turner since seeing her live in Oslo,” says Roppestad. “I promise a steamy version of ‘Steamy Windows’ for the fans.” S a t u r d a y ’ s festivalgoers can choose between tours of Nutbush, Turner’s childhood home, and painting an abstract of Tina on vinyl. The smell of stew will ﬁll the air as teams compete for the title of “Stewmaster” and live music from the Spotlight Rising Stars of Muskogee, will entertain between 11 am and 2 pm. The festival concludes with a Tribute performance at the Ann Marks Performing Arts Center in Brownsville’s Historic District. Former Flagg Grove School
student Lollie Mann will open the show with original gospel numbers and share her memories of time spent at Flagg Grove. Following Mann is Music Highway Band. This Jackson group has performed together since 2001, and have worked with such legendary performers as Carl Mann and Eddie Bond, developing their own special blend of rockabilly and country. Rhythm and blues performer Dorothy Cole will headline the show. Energetic and fun, Cole began her career as a tribute artist in 1993 when she won a Tina looka-like contest while performing “Proud Mary.” Since then, she has performed all over the country and in England where she shared the stage with Rod Stewart during a special performance tribute to Tina. A Chattanooga native and Decatur, Alabama, resident, Cole appeared
in Haywood County for the 2002 dedication of Highway 19 as “Tina Turner Highway.” “I’m excited about being back in Brownsville,” says Cole. “Performing in Tina’s hometown is always a privilege and I’m especially excited to be a part of the ﬁrst Tina Turner Heritage Days.” The Saturday evening concert begins
at 7 p.m. Tickets and more information, including a complete schedule of events, can be found on the festival website: www. tinaturnerheritagedays. com, or by contacting the Delta Heritage Center at 731-779-9000.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson
The best of the best Many folks are telling me these days they’re fed up with all the discussion about a recessed economy and all the political battles and bipartisan standoﬀs that dominate today’s news headlines. Some are saying in no uncertain terms they’ve had enough of all this gloom and doom. These folks insist upon hearing more stories that focus on something more refreshing and entertaining. A lot of folks around know about my past involvement in the world of country music and seem to be more interested in that subject. During a recent conversation, I was asked who has the best voice in country music. This would appear to be an easy question for someone who has spent 40 years, more or less, in the profession. However, it’s not that simple. For some reason, I accepted the challenge. Maybe, it would do me good to take a temporary journey down those roads of yesteryear. Before revealing my candidates as the best voices in country music, I must admit that I have very little experience in judging vocal exhibitions. Those on my list are observations made
based on experiences as a deejay, emcee, attending numerous recording sessions, and quite a few concerts over the years. The choices are not based on record sales, the number of top ten hits, charisma or their ability to draw a crowd at concerts. While my choices rate high in those areas, the primary criterion is the voice itself. My ﬁrst choice in the female category is Tanya Tucker. This has nothing to do with the fact that her ﬁrst song “Delta Dawn” was written by Alex Harvey, a friend and high school classmate. Tanya has a powerful voice with great range and can sing with the best of them. When she came on the scene in 1972 at the age of 13 with “Delta Dawn,” she received top vocal ratings from music critics and disc jockeys across the nation. Tanya’s career could have been a lot more successful had her career not taken a downward spiral in 1979 that lasted for about ﬁve years. In addition to “Delta Dawn,” some of her more memorable hits included “What’s Your Mama’s Name,” “If It Don’t Come Easy,” and one of my favorites, “Oh What It Did to Me.” The second name on that list is Christina
Claire Ciminella. You may know her as Wynonna Judd. She began her career as one of the members of The Judds along with her mother Naomi Judd. They came on the scene in 1992 with the smash hit, “Mama He’s Crazy.” She has experienced a very successful career of her own as well. The Judd’s together received ﬁve Grammy awards, nine CMA awards, and eight Billboard awards. If the list of best female voices threw you into musical shock, my choice for the best male voice will most likely pop your cork. He is not recognized as a great touring artist nor does he have a long list of number ones and top ten hits. In fact, a lot of folks listening to country music since 1979 may not know who he is. Allow me to introduce you to John Berry. A few of his most recognizable hits include “Your Love Amazes Me” and “Standing on the Edge of Goodbye.” My favorite John Berry song is his Christmas rendition of “O Holy Night.” There are some who say that John Berry is not just the best voice in county music. The Entertainment Nexus described him as “one of the most remarkable voices in music.”
Home sweet home... well, almost Well, we have ﬁnished moving. The unpacking is a completely diﬀerent story though! The house is completely unpacked, and the only thing left to do inside is ﬁnd a few “pretties” to hang on the walls where I have bare spaces, and maybe a couple of other small things. Chuck and my dad are working on sprucing up all of the landscaping. What they have done so far looks absolutely amazing! (Thanks for all of your help, Dad!) We also still have to unpack the pool house and organize it. We’re going to make it...eventually. As I am writing this, it is Tuesday afternoon and every muscle in my body hurts! I was supposed to be on vacation all week, but I agreed to come in and work today and tomorrow (Wednesday) to help out. I don’t mind at all, regardless of what’s going on at home, but my body is sure thanking me for the “break” it is getting today! I am busy as can be, but at least I am not unpacking any boxes and moving any
furniture! I do know one thing for sure, if my super awesome sister-in-law, Mary, had not driven down from Kentucky Friday and helped me ALL weekend, I would still be unpacking boxes inside. We worked until after midnight Friday and all day Saturday. We ﬁnally ﬁnished up the inside boxes about one o’clock Sunday morning. Thank you, Mary! My amazing sister, Kristine, also helped out by watching the kids swim all day Saturday. She took care of them while we worked in the house, and I am truly grateful for that! Thanks, sister! My nephew, Ethan, helped Dad and Chuck work outside all day. At the end of the day, Chuck gave him ﬁve dollars for helping. He said he would have given him ten, but he didn’t have any more cash on him. But, it didn’t matter to Ethan. I heard he was super proud that his Uncle Chuck paid him. My mom said he told her, “Uncle Chuck must have really thought I
worked hard and did good ‘cuz he gave me ﬁve dollars!” Thanks, Ethan! We are slowly but surely turning the “new” house into “home.” The kids are deﬁnitely enjoying the swimming pool, and are adjusting to a new home pretty good. I told them this weekend if they didn’t get out of the water for a while they were going to turn into ﬁsh, but they didn’t care. Jacob worked up enough courage to jump oﬀ of the diving board, and I bet he made 100 trips to jump over the weekend! I sure have missed seeing and talking to everybody while I’ve been oﬀ, but will be back in full force soon! I will be oﬀ the end of the week (possibly) to ﬁnish everything up. Maybe by then I will at least be able to stand up without moving so slow! I just hope that the weather cooperates and it stays beautiful outside so that we can ﬁnish everything up! I hope you all had a good Labor Day holiday, and you enjoy this weekend as well!

Don’t Turn Out the Lights On a recent trip to Colonial Williamsburg my family decided to go on a “ghost walk” down the Duke of Gloucestershire Street, the main thoroughfare of the restored/preserved town. Two tours were oﬀered, one for adults (scary) and one described as “suitable for children of all ages.” That’s the one we chose. It was a lighthearted look at some unexplained things that had happened along the street, both in colonial and modern times, and I found it mildly interesting at best. Our three little girls, ages nine, seven and ﬁve, however, were enthralled. They loved it and almost immediately began clamoring for more ghost stories. They’ve even incorporated “ghosts” into their play at home. Their enthusiasm reminded me of one of my best memories of childhood. My Cub Scout den had a cookout one October evening about the time the sun was going down, right next to the graveyard of an old country church about four miles out of town, and after consuming a startling number of hotdogs and burnt marshmallows we settled down to listen to our den mother’s husband tell stories. Ghost stories. They were all reputed to be true, of course, and by a string of amazing coincidences most were about events that had “occurred” on the very road on which we were encamped-one of them at a house not a hundred yards away. Today, practically nobody can tell a story well, but he could, and each of his tales was spookier than the one before it. By the end of the evening we had been scared out of our wits many times over. Each story began with some injustice, either intentional or accidental, that resulted in the victim’s ghost coming back to wreak vengeance upon the malefactor or to reclaim some object like a severed toe or something. “. . . and then she slowly opened the door where the old man lay sleeping. She began walking quietly toward the bed. Closer. Closer. Closer. BOO!” or something like it he would shout at the end and we would all scream and giggle and relax from the tension and immediately demand another story. It was a fabulous and exciting evening. What is it about ghost
stories? Want to get someone’s attention, adult or child? Tell them a ghost story. Everybody whether they believe in ghosts or not, will pay attention when someone starts to tell one. They’ll push everything else out of their minds and listen, often suspending disbelief in the process, as the narrator spins his creepy tale of the other life. Some people theorize that we like such stories so much because it’s fun to be scared. Within limits, that is. That creepy feeling or jolt of fear evoked by the story causes the old “ﬁght or ﬂight” response to kick in, and when it does, a part of our brains called the amygdala causes a burst of adrenaline and other hormones like dopamine to go coursing through our veins. Thus, our fear becomes a stimulant more eﬀective than a triple espresso, and in a setting where we know we are actually safe, this can be an extremely pleasant feeling. Ghost stories are also good for group bonding. When you share a scare, you feel closer together and have a greater sense of community with the group you are in. Frequently after hearing one person tell a ghost story, others in the group will share their own, and invariably this will lead to a discussion as to whether there really are ghosts or not. There aren’t, of course. We all know that. Our parents told us that, over and over. Ghost stories are just fantasy tales. Or are they? As with nearly every other question, the country is divided in its opinion. In a poll taken last December, in spite of the fact that nearly every ghost story ever
told has been debunked, 45% of Americans said they believed in ghosts of one sort or another, and many, many people claim to have had a personal ghostly experience. Furthermore, some pretty famous, and supposedly credible, people claim to have encountered ghosts. One of America’s most famous ghosts is that of Abraham Lincoln. Did you know that several people, including former ﬁrst lady Grace Coolidge and Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands claim to have seen his ghost at the White House? So did Winston Churchill. His account is somewhat humorous. He claimed that he had just stepped out of the bathtub and walked, nude, into the bedroom when he saw the former president standing next to the ﬁreplace. Never at a loss for words, Churchill quipped, “Good evening Mr. President. You seem to have me at a disadvantage.” Mr. Lincoln, he said, just smiled and disappeared. That’s an example of a charming ghost story, but it’s not the kind most people love to hear. No, the ones that really captivate us, whether we believe in ghosts or not, are those that pull us into the world of the afterlife and create that tingling sensation along our spines that makes our heart beat faster and faster, sometimes escalating to bone chilling fear until ﬁnally, the storyteller helps us meet and defeat that fear, and we can lean back and breathe a sigh of relief as our pulse rates return to normal. Until, that is, the next story begins.

Anderson students learn how to wash their hands
Mrs. Sarah Poole from the UT Extension Agency brought “Buster the Blacklight” to visit Anderson students this week. Students learned the proper way to wash hands. Her instructions were ﬁrst, use good soap, make lots of bubbles, wash the fronts, backs, and sides of your hands, wash your wrists and in-between your
ﬁngers, and wash your ﬁngernails, too. Then, rinse all the soapy germs oﬀ. Lastly, dry your hands. The students learned that germs are invisible. Mrs. Poole put some invisible gel on their hands. Then they looked at their hands under the blacklight. Wow! So many spots! The students then went to wash their hands. After washing their hands,
they looked at their hands under the blacklight once again. If they washed their hands well ... then no spots! If not ... some spots remained. The students learned that it’s hard to clean under your ﬁngernails! Thank you, Mrs. Poole, for helping us learn more about germs and proper hand washing! Come back soon! Photos submitted
Tennessee students’ ACT scores show incremental increase for second consecutive year
Tennessee public high school graduates slightly improved their performance on the ACT test in 2013, earning an average score of 19.3 out of 36, up from 19.2 in 2012, according to state-bystate results released by ACT today. This marks the second year the average ACT
score for Tennessee students has increased, from 19.0 in 2011. Tennessee is one of only nine states to require all high school students take the ACT. Statewide scores help the Tennessee Department of Education measure the state’s progress towards its goal of
greater college and career readiness for all students. The percentage of test-takers meeting all of the ACT’s college readiness benchmarks rose from 14 percent to 15 percent in Tennessee as scores increased in 2013. “While small incremental gains
are positive, we must work toward larger growth for Tennessee students,” said Education Commissioner Kevin Huﬀman. “Far too many students in our state graduate without the knowledge they need for college or the job market. We are implementing
education reforms designed to address these deﬁciencies and drive continuous improvement.” In Tennessee, 56 percent of graduates met ACT benchmarks in English, 27 percent in math, 33 percent in reading and 24 percent in science. As in previous years, 2013 scores highlight the necessity for Tennessee to increase college readiness among certain racial minorities. Only three percent of black students and 10 percent of Hispanic students met college benchmarks in all four-core subjects, compared to 19 percent of white students and 31 percent of Asian students. In Tennessee, 95 percent of students took the standard duration test while ﬁve percent took the extended duration test. As of the 201213 data release, ACT will now report scores from both categories in reporting the state’s average composite
score. This is a change from previous years; historically, ACT has calculated scores for standard time test takers only. “Starting with the graduating class of 2013, results from the ACT-approved accommodated administrations that result in collegereportable ACT scores will be included as part of the ACT summary reports,” their report states. Because the state strives to raise standards for all students, the composite score of 19—which includes standard and extended-time test takers will be the state’s new baseline moving forward. Through the implementation of the Common Core State Standards targeted at developing the skills needed for college and the workplace, the state strives to better prepare students and continue to improve Tennessee’s ACT results.

Tomcats take out Dyersburg Haywood rolls past state’s fifth-ranked team By JEFF IRELAND email@example.com Considering Haywood had not beaten Dyersburg in several years, the game was in Dyersburg and the Trojans were ranked fifth in the state, the Tomcats appeared to be a pretty heavy underdog heading into Friday night’s game. The way the game played out, that did not seem be the case. Behind a stout defense and big nights from Bryce Young and Wil Austin, the Tomcats beat the Trojans pretty handily, 46-24, to move to 2-0 on the season. First-year Haywood coach Ernie Jackson was asked after the game if the thought the result would surprise football fans around West Tennessee. “I guarantee Dyersburg was surprised,” Jackson said. “The offense played great and the defense played lights out.” Austin racked up 302 all purpose yards, running for two touchdowns and throwing for two more. Young was nearly unstoppable, rolling up 294 yards on the ground and three touchdowns.
Trailing 17-13 midway through the second quarter, Young broke a 60-yarder for a score to go ahead 20-17. As time expired in the first half, Haywood, facing a fourth and 12, scored again on a 38-yard TD pass from Austin to Dylan Simmons go ahead 27-17 at the half. The lead was pushed to 34-17 when Denarius Toliver hauled in an 85-yard TD pass from Austin at the end of the third quarter. “Both of those plays,” Jackson said, “we real mometum changers.” Jackson made a point to congratulate his defensive line – Keyshawn Brummett, Jamarcus Richardson, Montravious Woodland, Rashad Brown and Emmit Gooden – for all but shutting down a highly-regarded Dyersburg offense. “We felt really good going into this game,” Jackson said. “We had a phenomenal week of practice. I have to thank Coach (Andre) Green for a great defensive game plan that the players executed … I told them to be great, and they did.” Haywood hosts Liberty (0-2) tomorrow night in the District 15-AA opener.

Haywood soccer team defeats JCM 3-2 By JEFF IRELAND firstname.lastname@example.org The Haywood Lady Tomcats soccer team picked up their first win of the season in action last Thursday in Jackson. Deja Wilson tallied two goals and Eliza Ford two assists as Haywood defeated Jackson Central-Merry 3-2. “We’ll take the win,” Haywood head coach Mixon Moore said. “I was proud of the girls. It was one of the most physical games I’ve ever seen.” Wilson scored a pair of goals in the first half. Ford picked up the assist on the first one and Pamela Castro assisted on the second. Leading 2-1 at the half, Haywood (1-2-1) got a goal from Kim Nieto, assisted by Ford, to go up 3-1 midway through the first half. JCM pulled to within one goal late, but Haywood’s defense held on down the stretch for the win. “We still have some work to do,” Moore said. “The girls are working hard.” Haywood returns to action today at Ripley at 5 p.m.

Jackson nominated for Coach of the Week The Tennessee Titans are proud to announce the four nominees for Week One of the Titans High School Coach of the Week honors. This week’s nominees are Jeremy Bosken of David Crockett, Ernie Jackson of Haywood, George Quarles of Maryville and James Counce of Henry County high school. Each coach was chosen by sports media throughout the state of Tennessee on the basis of specific criteria. The specific criteria included, beating a longtime rival, snapping a losing streak, defeating a defending champion, an amazing come from behind victory, and/or involvement in the local community.
Also considered, is a coach’s consideration of his players’ safety, by teaching the fundamentals of the game, proper tackling techniques, concussion management practices and adherence to heat and hydration guidelines. Ernie Jackson, Haywood High School: Jackson’s Haywood High School Tomcats defeated Class 4A fifth-ranked Dyersburg Trojans in a road game upset, 46-24. The first-year high school coach put together a great game plan pulling away from his opponent in the second half, racking up over 600 total yards of offense.

Wellwood/Zion News By Denise Phillips We missed Zion Baptist Church Sunday, but heard there was a good crowd present for the Labor Day Services. Ray Ellington said we had visitors in our Sunday school class and that Bill and Carol Maness were back. Bill has been working seven days a week with TDOT so Iâ€™m glad he was able to come. Although Sunday night service was few in number, mama said the worship was great in both! I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day as much as we did! Friday, Jason and Amanda came over and helped put up boards and clean windows. Saturday, we traveled to our Rainey family in Nashville along with my brother Tommy and Judy Elrod. After a great time there, we stopped in Jackson Sunday to visit with our son Justin and his family. We canâ€™t seem to get our families together anymore with all the children involved in diďŹ€erent activities, so we just visit them separately. Precious memories are made with each one as we see them. Congratulations to Sam Pyron who was married Saturday to the lovely Sabrina Saveh. I am sure they had a fabulous weekend in Chattanooga following
the wedding. I think they are making their home in Humboldt, but I am not sure. However, since I work with Sam at the middle school Iâ€™m sure he will correct me if I am wrong. By the way, his brother Logan is doing some course work at the middle school as well. He is working on his masters. Way to go Logan! I know Alice Elrod (mama) enjoyed her visit with Aunt Francis Elrod in Hillville Saturday. Connie took them to see Katie Freels and then they enjoyed a delicious lunch at Milanos before returning home. Adam Smith and family, Boyd Wright and family, and the Darnaby and Pinner families enjoyed a weekend at the lake. I am sure a good time was had by all. Jessie and Norma Austin had their children over the weekend. They enjoyed swimming and riding dirt bikes. Some of the boys went hunting as well, and knowing Norma, thereâ€™s no telling what else they did to have fun! Mama came by for a brief visit before church Wednesday night. Norma didnâ€™t make it to prayer meeting because she was helping Janet Tinsley get her mother
Nell Austin (Normaâ€™s mother-in-law) settled in at Maplewood Nursing Home in Jackson. Nell had spent a few days in a Memphis hospital and was happy to move back closer to home. Three new members joined the menâ€™s prayer breakfast making a total of ďŹ fteen present Thursday morning. Poplar Cornerâ€™s Pastor Tim McPherson led a challenging devotion about a special book called the Bible. This group meets each Thursday at 6:00 at ZBC and all men are invited to join this awesome group of prayer warriors! Donâ€™t forget! Housewarming for Timmy Barnes is September 7 from 12-2 at 6214 Mercer Road. September 8 there will be one service at Zion following Sunday school for family and friends. Lunch will be served for everyone and lots of fun activities will be provided for the kids. Continue praying for sick folks and their families, military personnel and families, shut-ins, those mourning loss, and the leaders of our country. Call me at 772-4257 or email me at phillipsd6@ k12tn.net if you have news. People want to know!
Allen News By Sandi Bishop Bro. Phil and Sandra took a short trip for their anniversary, so Shey ďŹ lled in preaching on Sunday morning and did a great job! His message was from Revelation 3:1422 - â€œWhat Kind of Church Are Weâ€?? The Lord was so displeased with the church at Laodicea because they were neither â€œhotâ€? nor â€œcoldâ€? - they were â€œlukewarmâ€?. One of the examples he gave that was so interesting was that Laodicea had no water supply and had to depend on aquaducts from about six miles in one direction, which provided water from â€œhot springsâ€? and about ten miles in another direction, which provided â€œcool spring waterâ€? - so by the time the water reached Laodicea from both directions, it was â€œlukewarmâ€?. They had a problem with â€œpossessionâ€? - they had made it their church instead of INS
Godâ€™s church. Another interesting example that Shey gave was that our churches are like an airplane. If an airplane stops moving forward, itâ€™s going down - and so will our churches without Godâ€™s presence and guidance. Please make praying for our churches a speciďŹ c concern in your daily prayers. Taylor Dedmon brought the special music - â€œWord of God Speakâ€? - and, as always, did a great job. We have some younger â€œAllen Angelsâ€? this week our awesome puppet team. They all went to Oklahoma on the mission trip a few weeks ago and did the puppet show at Vacation Bible Schools then performed for us a couple of weeks ago. It was so cute and everyone did such a good job. So hereâ€™s a â€œshout outâ€? to the â€œpuppeteersâ€? and their â€œpuppetsâ€? - â€œBarkleyâ€? (Hunter Flowers),

Great job yaâ€™ll. Weâ€™re looking forward to the next performance. And a special thanks to Brandy Buckingham for all her hard work with the puppet team. Thanks to Joe Barden and the folks at Poplar Corner for the nice reception when Frazier and Linda Russell and I sang there recently. God continues to bless in our music ministry. Many folks in our prayer hearts this week - please pray for those mentioned on Sunday night and Wednesday night and in our Sunday school classes. Also please pray for the families of Jean Robinette and Gillam Howse in the loss of their loved ones. We saw our sweet friends, Evelyn Davis and Earnestine Eason, at lunch Sunday at T-Bone Steakhouse. Please lift up Earnestine and her family in your prayers â€“ her mother, Bonnie Foster, is in a nursing home and hospice has been called in, so Miss Bonnieâ€™s homegoing is probably at hand - pray that God will sustain her family through this diďŹƒcult time. Happy Birthday this week to our sweet â€œHoneyâ€? (Doris Jernigan). Final thought â€œWhen we get tangled up in our problems, the Lord wants us to be still so He can untangle the knotâ€?.

Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones â€œWhen We Prayâ€? was the subject of the message. Praying is such a blessing from God. He is always there to hear us, with no call waiting or busy signal. Praying is depending on God when we know we canâ€™t depend on ourselves. The writer of James tells us that the prayer of a righteous person is powerful. Faith is not believing the impossible but believing what God told us is true. In the face of uncertainty, there is still hope when we trust in and obey God. Itâ€™s not His will that any should perish, so we need to just keep on praying for those without Christ, remembering that everything is possible with God. Proir to the services, Skyler Ledford and Haleigh Pearson were baptized. Members of their families were there to share this important occasion with them. Roy Lewis challenged everyone by giving his testimony on tithing. The choir sang â€œLove in Any Languageâ€? for special music, featuring Kathy McClinton as soloist and led by Brother Ralph Brown. Our missionary to the jail, Mr. Robert Barden, reported one profession of faith and three rededications Sunday.
Happy Birthday to Makayla Moore, J.T. Campbell, James Moore, Gia Leath, Joe Ellis, Melissa Peace and David Perry. Our dear friend Jan Wynn celebrated her birthday in heaven this year. Happy anniversary to Doug and Gyrit Kail. We express our sympathy to the family of Patty Coburn. Patty grew up around Holly Grove and our condolences to the family of Mr. Earl Davis. Carey and Stephanie Scott and two sons and Steve and Stephanie Lewis, Katie and Harrison attended church at Holly Grove Sunday and following church services joined James and Judy Lewis and Beverly Lewis at a Bells restaurant for a meal together. Those experiencing health problems are counting on us to go to the Great Physician on their behalf. The list includes Brother Ralph Brown who is scheduled for surgery, Lynn Coburn who is home but still needs our prayers, Ronnie Vanstory, Mary Ann Ballard, Letha Adkisson, and Tommy Lomax. Others are our good friend Kathy Clenny, Gary Blair, Justin CLimer, Shelby Jean Outlaw, Fletcher Lewis and Leslie and Ginger Warren. Also include Debbie
Carroll, Ashlyn Young and our pastor who is having diďŹƒculty with his blood pressure. â€œMissions Nightâ€? was held at church Wednesday night. We had a group of 12 ladies there for WMS and had a good time together promoting and studying about the important place missions are to have in our lives and church. Carolyn Watridge is our president with Barbara Coburn serving as treasurer and Helen Hastings as secretary. The Brotherhood and the other groups also met. On hot summer days, how would we live today without air-conditioners? I reveal my age, but I can remember before air-conditioning. In fact the only places in town that were so blessed with it were banks, drug stores and theaters. Some of the others may have had some type of fans. Wow! Iâ€™m sure that sounds ancient to my children and grandchildren. If you want to know more about those ancient days, you might want to get a copy of my last book, â€œA Journey Into Yesteryears.â€? It carries one back in the early eighteen hundreds to the beginning of Haywood County and on into the 1900s.

A Botanical Look at Trees By Walter Battle As we continue the clean-up from this yearâ€™s storms and start pruning our yard trees for fall clean-up, I thought it would be good for a refresher course on the botanical properties of these beloved multi-purpose plants. University of Tennessee Forestry Professor Larry Tankersly cited the following information from Wood Decay in Living and Dead Trees: A Pictorial Overview by Walter Shortle and Kenneth Dudzik, in the August â€œForestry, Wildlife, and Fisheries Updateâ€? newsletter. Botanically, trees are large, longlived, perennial, compartmented, woody, shedding, walling plants. Some get larger and live longer than any other organism on Earth. Remember that a tree is a green plant with leaves, a stem, and roots. As it grows larger, itâ€™ll become mostly stems of wood and bark. When a tree grows from three feet to over sixty-ďŹ ve feet, the stem increases from about 5 to 75% of total dry mass, the foliage decreases from 60 to 5% and the branches from 20 to 5%, while the roots remain at about 20 percent. Carbohydrates ( r e m e m b e r photosynthesis), made in

Each week, more than 245 million customers and members visit their 10,900 stores under 69 banners in 27 countries and e-commerce websites in 10 countries. With ďŹ scal year 2013 sales of approximately $466 billion, Walmart employs 2.2 million associates worldwide. Since the ďŹ rst Walmart store opened in 1962 in Rogers, Arkansas, theyâ€™ve been dedicated to making a diďŹ€erence in the lives of their customers. Their business is the result of Sam Waltonâ€™s visionary leadership, along with generations of associates focused on helping customers and communities save money and live better. Working together creates success!
and poor years (narrow rings) for growth depending on stand density (in forests), climate, and nutritional factors (in the root zone). Some trees survive, others do not. Of all the 4-inch diameter saplings in a hardwood stand, only 10 percent on average survive to become mature 16-inch trees. As the younger, smaller trees die, they decay to enrich the soil with organic matter and nutrients for the surviving trees. Compartmentalization of decay in trees is a powerful system that protects the living parts of a tree, allowing it to survive many wounds and infectious wood pathogens. This inner decay was very noticeable on a lot of the old oaks that were destroyed in this summerâ€™s storm. The tree simply kept â€œbandagingâ€? itself over the many years.

Chamber of Commerce Director Brownsville location, located at 1100 South Dupree. This is the third location for Walmart, which started out on East Main â€œon the hillâ€? then to 100 South Dupree which is now the Justice Complex. The Chamber was honored to be a part of the Remodel Opening Celebration/ Ribbon Cutting last Friday! Walmart Manager, Kenneth Knotts presented checks to: Born to Win, Concerned Citizens, West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center and Haywood County Schools. Chamber Director, Renee Moss introduced speakers: Brownsville Mayor Jo Matherne, County Mayor Franklin Smith and Chamber President, Joe Stephens. Walmart associates, Chamber Board and Chamber Ambassadors were present for the ribbon cutting. Afterward cake, cupcakes, donuts and coďŹ€ee were enjoyed
the leaves is distributed fairly equally to above ground and below ground parts when a tree is small, but as it becomes larger, more than 80% of this food goes to maintain below ground roots. It should be noted that many tree problems begin in the root zone. At maturity the massive stem supports the crown of branches where leaves make food to sustain life as long as suďŹƒcient water and essential elements are provided by the roots below ground. Trees are perennial and must survive from one season to the next. They must work hard to sustain life as they pass from above ground activity in the summer when shoots elongate to below ground activity in winter when roots elongate. A record of annual stem growth can be seen in tree rings; there are good years (wide rings)

Walmart holds grand re-opening
BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic. com Walmart held a Grand Re-Opening Friday, August 30, and had a large crowd to join in their celebration of the recent remodeling. Walmart’s manager, Kenneth Knotts, spoke brieﬂy about the changes that were made in the store, and thanked this community for all of their support. He also thanked his employees for all of
their hard work, his wife for her support, and God for his many blessings. Several regional managers were also in attendance for the festivities The Haywood Middle School band was on hand to provide music, and the band director, Mr. Cutter, sang the National Anthem. Walmart also gave several donations that morning. They presented checks to Haywood County Concerned Citizens
($1,000), Born to Win Summer Camp ($,1500), West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center ($1,000), and Haywood County Schools ($300). Afterwards, guests were treated to cake and refreshments in the bakery. Walmart’s celebration followed the remodeling of the store. Fresh paint has been put on the walls, signs have been moved or changed, and items in the store have been rearranged to make for easier, more eﬃcient shopping.
Get Well. Live Well. Sixty-one-year-old Haywood County resident, Mr. Billy Cason, was admitted to Crestview Health Care and Rehabilitation in the Spring of 2013 after he had suffered a severe stroke. In the weeks prior to Mr. Cason’s admission to Crestview, he had failed two swallow studies and, as a result of the failed studies, had been classified as not being able to have any food by mouth. Under the direction of Speech Language Pathologist Tarcie Serrano, the therapy staff at Crestview provided a specialized therapy to Mr. Cason, known as “Vital Stimulation Therapy”, commonly referred to as “VitalStim” Therapy. Following four weeks of intensive VitalStim Therapy, Mr. Cason returned to have another swallow study and successfully passed. Soon afterwards Crestview Health Care celebrated National Nursing Home Week by having a cookout for the residents and staff. It was on this particular day that Mr. Cason was able to eat his first bite of “real food” since suffering the stroke. Crestview Health Care offers VitalStim Therapy for patients who suffer from Dysphagia, or difficulty with swallowing. VitalStim uses neuromuscular electrical stimulation in combination with traditional speech therapy techniques to stimulate inactive swallowing muscles. The technique aids in helping patients create or relearn functional muscle use patterns necessary to initiate or re-establish swallowing.
