Freeland granted change of venue Trial date rescheduled for August The man accused of one of Chester County’s most heinous crimes was due to face a Chester County jury next week where he could be sentenced to death. Instead he was granted a last minute change of venue and his trial date has been pushed back to Aug. 30. Judge Roy Morgan granted John Freeland Jr. the venue change to Madison County, requested by his attorneys, due to what he said of media reports that could have persuaded a small local jury pool. Judge Morgan said although the reports may have been factual,

the sensitivity of the information reported could have an effect on any juror’s decision. Freeland is being charged with the first degree murder of Chester County resident Carolyn Ward. Ward was found shot to death in March 2009 on Dry Creek Lane and her car was found burned in the Beech Bluff area. Authorities determined Ward was kidnapped at gunpoint in the parking lot of Fred’s one Saturday afternoon. Judge Morgan had previously denied a change of venue request, but new details of the case have been recently pub-

lished by newspapers, including Freeland’s detailed statements where he said that he pulled the trigger, then issued three follow-up statements claiming Marcus Thompson shot Ward. In Freeland’s statements, motives for killing Ward include obtaining gang status and obtaining a get-a-way vehicle for future robberies. According to Freeland, the trio came to Chester County with the intent to steal a vehicle in order to rob businesses in Memphis. According to Chester County Circuit Court Clerk Keith Frye, Thompson’s trial date has not been scheduled at this time. He remains in custody of the state in a TDOC facility. The other

FREELAND suspect, Tashundra Mosley recently took a plea deal for her involvement and will be granted her sentence after she testifies in Freeland’s trial.

Smith announces candidacy for sheriff position Rhoda Smith has announced her candidacy for sheriff of Chester County, and the 20-year resident of Chester County says she is honored to request your vote. Smith is the oldest of 10 children. She has five children of her own. “I will have the strongest fight out of all the candidates,” says Smith. “My greatest joy will be seeing the taxpayers (men and women) save money – as I plan to reduce the jail funds. “I am for every man, woman and child in our county. Growing up I learned that hard work does pay,” continued Smith. “I plan to invigorate and inspire our community to greater heights.” One of the programs she intends to implement in our jail is “Celebrate Recover,” which she describes as a very positive and uplifting program, noting the program has over a 90 percent effective

rating. “I firmly believe that with enough positive directives into our own life, what is only dreamed can be achieved,” Smith said. When asked about the future, Smith is quick to add, “Only when we can envision the future can we make it happen.” Smith plans to have her husband help with this position. She said Mr. Smith was a Marine and National Guardsman, and his sister was an F.B.I. agent. Smith has a deep love for Chester County that can be felt immediately when talking with her. “I feel that it is within the family unit where crime can be stopped. Within the roots are where changes appear first,” says Smith. Smith’s oldest son is a student at Chester County High School. He has been straight A’s his whole life he credits on the school system. Just a couple of weeks ago he was induct-

It was good to see so many people at the Veteran’s Day program on Monday, remembering our veterans that have lost their lives fighting for our freedom, and our present service men and women that are still serving our country. Several of our veterans have died since returning home. I noticed some that were there last year that were unable to go this year. Yes, you were missed. A great number of our veterans and present personnel were present at the program and please let them know how much you appreciate them. The program was a very inspiring one. May God Bless you and your families. Congratulations to Cody Stovall and Taylor Ross. Cody recently graduated with high honors from the University of Tennessee Health and Science Center in

Memphis with a Master’s Degree in occupational therapy. Taylor graduated from Chester County High School. Both are grandsons of Charles and Clessie Stovall. Our deepest sympathy goes to the family of Robert Usery, husband of Lucille Usery. On our prayer list this week are Charles Stovall, Gerald Stanfill, Carroll Williams, Glen Jones, Alexis Boggs, Pam Priddy, Charles and Wilma Cupples, Jean Latham, John Kent Sells, Phillip Ross, Joanne Sells, Ollie Dean Kennedy, Bill and Shirley Gaddy, Carolyn Potter, Dianne Wells, Judy Cagle, Gathel Latham, their caregivers and our military personnel and their families. Happy anniversary to Max and LaVerne Lott, June 4; John David and Joanne Sells, June 6; and Allen Lane and Lillie Arnold, June 9. Birthday greetings to Vick Corson, June 3; Nicky Bridges and Joe David Sells, June 4; April Stewart, June 5; Bobby Sells, Tyler Jones, Zettie Mae Dickey, and Brandon Huff, June 6; Lee Ann Jones, Paul Garrison, and Joe Freeman, June 8; Taylor Ross, June 9; and Teresa Miller, June 10.

The Pentagon reported eight Americans were killed last week, thus; “The price of freedom isn’t free” are words that have a profound effect on veterans. City Hall was the site of a red, white, and blue floral spray (donated in loving memory by Liz’s BBQ) which was later carried to the court house square and placed near monuments bearing names of 67 Chester County men who made the ultimate sacrifice. They are: (WWI) Monty Allen, Joshua Buckingham, Earl Cooper, Hampton Cooper, Curry Cupples, Charley Davis, Dolphus Deming, Dennis Fields, Joe Findley, James Gaddy, Amos Haltom, Isaac Massengill, Scott Robinson, and Fred Rowland; (Korean) Eugene Cox, Ray Dunn, and Harold Rhodes; (WWII) Bennett Allen, Joseph Anderson, John Arnold, Thomas Barber, Hughie Bishop, Isaac Brown, J.T. Cawthon, W.C. Christopher, Gordan Cox, John Griffin, Edgar Holder, Robert Holder, William Holmes, John Hubbard, William Kinchen, Wade King, C.B. Latham, James Lee, Floyd Lindsey, K.D. Lowrance, Jr., Hobert Maness, Edison Marsh, Kenneth McCanless, Willie Morris, Kirk Mount, Don O’Neal, James Priddy, John Ramer, Neal Ratliff, Hubert Rhodes, Herman Scott,

J.L. Smith, Roy Smith, Floyd Snider, Elmo Tarpley, George Wallace, Floyd Wilson, Lloyd Wilson, Oliver Wilson, Jr., Woodrow Wood, and Robert Wood, Jr.; (Vietnam) Charles Crowe, Dale Hollowell, Dannie Jacobs, and Dennis Taylor; (Career Service) Frankie Naylor, Gene Parrish, and J.T. Peddy; (Gulf War) Dustin Adkins and Judson Mount. Many patriotic USA citizens showed respect to veterans on Memorial Day. Master of Ceremonies, Major, Retired USAR, Bill Jewell, read his heart-wrenching poem, “Memories”. The following paragraph shares Bill Jewell’s words to honor all who didn’t make it home and for those who have served, and to those who stand ready to do so today, tomorrow, or whenever called to do so. “Every family has a member who died somewhere in battle or who has never made it back home. They be listed as killed in action, missing in action, or may be just unknown. Whatever the case may be, we owe each one a debt of love. And we need to fill our memory with the thanks for their shed blood. We don’t need another Memorial Day sale to help our barbecue digest. We don’t have to have a picnic to fulfill a perfect day of rest. As we are bound here this morning we come to offer our heartfelt thanks to those who fell in combat. Everyone who filled the ranks you have our undying love as our hearts and memories overflow and we reflect on unnumbered white crosses lined in thousands of silent rows. Let’s thank God for freedom’s blessings and this land we

call our own. And let’s never forget the memories of those who didn’t make it home.” Special comments were made by Russell Clayton, Chris McDaniel, Troy Kilzer, and Bobby King praising our vets, country, county, and hometown. Old soldiers bowed their graying heads in prayer during Gary Johnson’s prayer. Those same old soldiers stood slowly and proudly saluted as Pledge of Allegiance was recited by heart, and all sang, The Star Spangled Banner. Bill Jewell played TAPS on harmonica as Old Glory was lowered to halfmast by Don Rouse. Captain Wade Reed closed his speech with a poem that he has held in his heart over the years. “In times of war and not before, God and the soldier men adore, but in time of peace with all things righted, God and the soldier are always slighted.” Captain Reed concluded that he prayed that we never lose sight of the values and principles of this country and the price that has been, and is still being paid to maintain them. Let us never forget those brave men and women. God bless America and let freedom ring. James A. Webb made a “Kodak moment” by capturing a group photo of our vets. Perhaps those vets who were unable to attend this year will join our oldest vet, Cecil Barker, Fentress Casey, Horrace Mount, Orman Campbell, Keith Ross, and Tommy Prince in next year’s group picture. Their absence was noticed, so this roving reporter called to check on them. The Chester County Healthcare honored seven vets on Friday. They are

Lushious Burnett, Elmo Weaver, Thurman Cash, James Ashworth, Leonard Burkhead, Walter Edgin, and James Cupples. I carried today’s program to be delivered to those dear old soldiers who once served their country with pride. God bless them tenderly as they perhaps hear TAPS in their hearts, too. Those popular words are, “Day is done, gone the sun, from the lake, from the hill, from the sky, all is well, safely rest, God is nigh.” I felt led to dedicate this column to those who have and are still serving our dear country. The only tidbits to share are Billy Dickson is slowly healing. Martha Crowe called to say her mom said Dusty came to visit, so Mae Pollock is feeling much better, but Dusty was exhausted after his threehour visitation among his pals. The JCCC members are making fried pies for the freezer Tuesday. The rolling dough group wondered why Geralene Thompson decided to return to Alabama on work day! She and Scooter visited Maedell Chumney, Steven Johnsey, and Brenda and Donnie Hannah for a month. She missed her daughter, Candy Fall, so she’s gone home with a banjo on her knee. Our community expresses sympathy to the families of Amber Lea Alexander (7-10-85/5-3010); Robert Usery (2-2226/5-24-10); Carolyn Tubbs Glidewell (12-2442/5-26-10); and Ruth Nobles Morris (8-10-25/526-10). “Few burdens are heavy when everyone lifts” leads us to think about the everlasting arms. God bless.

CAPITOL HILL REVIEW Lawmakers push fiscally conservative plan Budget discussions continued last week, with conservatives standing firm against any wasteful projects and tax increases. Lawmakers have maintained, throughout budget discussions, that raising taxes on economicweary Tennesseans and additional money spent on wasteful projects are irresponsible. Their plan calls for significant reductions in discretionary spending, no tax increases, and leaving the Rainy Day Fund at a healthy level. Flood relief plans have been discussed this week during budget negotiations as lawmakers recognize the need for aid. Proposed methods for funding flood relief proposals include using cash from the state’s Rainy Day Fund, using a portion of stimulus money, and through various tax relief measures. Lawmakers will continue to hammer out details next week, as the General Assembly is constitutionally required to pass a balanced budget each year. Each General Assembly is allowed to meet for 90 session—or legislative—days over the course of two years. After session on Thursday morning, the House has only three legislative days left to finish business. The Senate has only one legislative day remaining. Lawmakers can continue session after the legislative days are depleted, but cannot receive per diem beyond 90 days. The Governor’s original budget proposal totaled $28.4 billion, including over $130 million in tax increases. House leadership previously denounced the Governor’s plan to implement an additional $85 million tax on single article sales as a way to balance the budget. This tax proposal was in addition to $50 million the Administration called for by increasing taxes on cable, long-distance telephone services, and free continental breakfasts that hotels and motels sometimes provide.

Zen and zest of hot peppers keep this redneck going…

Immigration policy passes House The House passed House Joint Resolution 1253 May 24 commending Arizona for their bold move on immigration policies. Arizona recently passed a law that allows law enforcement officials to require citizenship documentation on any citizen that is detained or arrested. The resolution passed with a 67-27 vote. The recent immigration policy adopted by Arizona has received national attention. In a poll conducted by MSNBC, NBC, and Telemundo, 61 percent of Americans support Arizona’s actions. Lawmakers have defended the law’s importance from both an immigration and economic standpoint. Individual states and municipalities across the country have implemented a slew of illegal immigration laws in the last few years following inaction by the federal government. The resolution has been sent to the Senate for action. To read the resolution in its entirety, go to http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/106/Bill/HJR1253.pdf.

Traffic cameras debate continues Lawmakers debated at length this week on the House floor whether or not to allow traffic cameras. House Bill 2875 was originally introduced to allow the formation of “automobile clubs and associations,” but lawmakers attempted to add a flurry of amendments to the bill that aimed at restricting the use of traffic cameras, imposing new regulations on them, or banning them outright. After hours of debate, an amendment was added that will place a moratorium on the devices so that lawmakers can conduct a study. After Jan. 1, 2011, no local government may place or operate traffic cameras on any highway that is maintained using state funds unless the location has been adopted by ordinance or resolution. Numerous bills were filed this year to either ban or lessen the impact of traffic cameras in Tennessee, after public outcry reached a fever pitch. Cities and counties in Tennessee have increasingly turned to the automated systems for surveillance of intersections and roadways. The Tennessee General Assembly studied the use of traffic cameras over the summer and fall of 2009. Lawmakers echoed criticisms from constituents that in addition to a violation of rights, the motivation behind the cameras is money, not safety. Proponents of the cameras argue that safety is the priority in using the cameras. The bill recommended by the committee stalled earlier this year, but the amendment passed Thursday contains similar wording.

In case you missed it...

A voter protection measure is likely headed to a conference committee after a series of amendments were added in the Senate. The state’s Attorney General recently opined that problems may exist within the amended version. House Bill 270 stipulates that voter registration forms must include a statement warning applicants that giving false information to register to vote or attempting to register when not qualified is a Class D felony. The application must also include an area where the applicant has to affirm that he or she is lawfully present in the United States. Despite the economic downturn, Tennessee has fared better than most states. Jackson National Life Insurance Company has finalized a deal to locate a regional headquarters in Cool Springs. The company said it is aiming to hire 400 people by next January, and eventually have a total staff of approximately 750. Nissan is breaking ground this week on a lithium-ion battery plant that will provide power for electric vehicles. Roughly 250 construction workers will be needed for the project. Several more counties were added to the federal disaster designation list this week, including Giles, Henry, and Campbell Counties. The total now stands at 48 and residents in designated counties may apply for help with debris removal and restoration efforts. Residents seeking help should call the Federal Emergency Management Agency at 1-800-621-FEMA.

Hot peppers are good for you. This I firmly believe. Members of my family might disagree. They watch me like a flock of hawks when I am in the kitchen. Fear of seasoning, is what I call their unreasonable phobia attached to the peppers I grow and dry, pickle, grind and paste. If my hand strays toward a jar of jalapenos or Scotch bonnet peppers while I am concocting chili or my famous spicy meat loaf — or if my stir fry seems to need a couple of Thai peppers for that authentic oriental burn — my wife and sons begin to complain, “Dad’s going to ruin dinner by making it too hot!” Nonsense, I say. Peppers, regardless of their Scoville units (a measure of the “heat” in hot peppers) and whether eaten fresh and raw or cooked in dishes, are a gift of nature and nutritional miracle. Full of vitamins and natural antioxidants, peppers in all their variety are recognized worldwide for their flavorful and healthy virtues. The soil of my Appalachian farm is particularly suited to the cultivation of hot peppers. Last summer’s cool growing season and generous rainfall helped yield a bumper crop. In particular, my Serrano and jalapeno pepper plants set abundant fruit. The pods were tenderly fleshed because we had only a few days of really hot weather. I ate crunchy and delicious raw peppers with bologna and fresh tomato sandwiches, chopped in homemade salsa (green tomato and peach), grilled with cheese stuffing and chomped to accompany crumbled cornbread in a glass of buttermilk with fresh spring onions. I love to pickle peppers for later enjoyment. Jalapeno peppers are well suited for preservation. I pack pint canning jars with pods, add sprigs of fresh dill weed and garlic

cloves, one tablespoon of canning salt and one-half teaspoon of alum, then fill with hot white vinegar just shy of boiling. Pickled peppers months later are great for seasoning Mexican dishes, sliced on nachos, in cheese dips or right out of the container. The spicy vinegar can be used as a condiment for stewed turnip or collard greens. Now is the time for setting pepper plants in the garden. Danger of frost has passed, and the soil temperature is in the 70s. I find if you keep the cutworms and deer away, peppers are easy to grow. Unfortunately, the whitetail deer around my farm have developed a taste for spicy food. I am convinced they post sentries to spy on my garden until I plant hot peppers, then an entire herd troops down at night to celebrate Cinco de Mayo by nibbling on the young foliage and flowers. My principle is to plant enough for the deer and myself. I will deal with the four-legged raiders during hunting season. When the plants set their pods, the deer no longer find the leaves and stalks tasty. But this is when I roam up and down the rows, picking tender young peppers for my salsa dishes. I am frequently asked to share these recipes. My blackberry and pear salsas are unique; my watermelon salsa unheard of in gourmet restaurants; and my beet salsa is a surprise. I can only advise that you must have plenty of fresh hot pepper pods, sweet peppers, cilantro leaves and limejuice. The rest is up to your imagination. I am fascinated with growing new types of hot peppers. My guidebook in all things peppery is the Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds catalog (www.rareseeds.com). If you have never heard of this remarkable family business, I highly recommend your attention to their annual seed book – all non-hybridized, nongenetically modified and

non-patented varieties like once grew in the gardens and fields of our ancestors. Baker Creek’s colorful catalog features four pages devoted solely to the Capsicum family (peppers). From heirloom North American to Hungarian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese and Korean, they’ve got a pepper for every taste and from a wide range of cultures. One thing they don’t have yet is the world’s current most deadly pepper. Boasting over 1 million Scoville units, the “Bhut jolokia,” or ghost chili, is grown in northern India. The Guinness Book of World Records in 2007 certified this pepper as the hottest. I’ve nicknamed the

pepper the “bhut joke” chili and speculate its aftereffects might not be funny at all. In fact, the Indian military has given it a new moniker: hand grenade pepper. The essence of the pepper has been incorporated into explosives designed to be non-toxic weapons for use against terrorists or rioting mobs. No joke, it works. The mother-of-all hot peppers hopefully soon will be listed in the Baker Creek catalog. I plan to order a packet of seeds and see if the “bhut joke” plants discourage deer from sampling my other young peppers. Then I will try making anti-terrorist salsa and chili with the scorchers. When I am discharged from the hospital, you’ll read the recipes.

Dear Editor, Thank you for honoring our family’s hero and remembering all those who have given their lives for the freedom of the great country of ours. James A. Webb’s article “Exercise Tiger” in the Memorial Day issue is outstanding, and you don’t know what it means to this family to have him

honored this way. Just recently we found out the tragic circumstances about his death on that fateful day – April 28, 1944 – a mystery hidden for almost 40 years. Again, we cannot thank you enough. Jo Cobb And the family of Woodrow Wood

Ask Me No one I know enjoys the feelings from trauma he or she are working through to cope with their loss. There is some comfort when people inquire how others are doing even though they are usually only offering social etiquette. It is important for the rest of us when inquiring how those who are mourning are coping, sincerely and genuinely. It never ceases to amaze me how people educate me through their experiences. One such important aspect we often fail to realize we miss in our inquiry happens when a child is involved of an adult we are speaking. We will ask the adult how they are doing and ignore the child as if they are a non-entity and lost nothing. Physicians who work in the field of child psychiatry say a child’s point of view is very important. We should seek to understand his or her perception of their traumatic loss. They agree the profoundly simple way to accomplish this is to ask them! The sad commonality seems to be that we adults are not recognizing youth in their grief. I am not talking about parents not talking to their own children, but the community inquiring of the parent and not inquiring of the child how they are coping. We may begin today by being more observant of our surroundings, and people with whom we are in regular contact. If there

are families that are enduring a traumatic loss of any kind, seek after them to discover how to be of service, if only to listen, notice, and acknowledge their journey and you are thinking of them from time to time. This also is an important point; visit them occasionally.

Clients thankful for Southwest HRA’s Pharmaceutical Assistance Program In January, Southwest Human Resource Agency (SWHRA) began the Pharmaceutical Assistance Program. This program provides financial assistance for pharmaceutical supplies for seniors in our service area who are age 60 or older. So far, 34 people have submitted applications requesting assistance through the program. Twenty-five applicants have been approved for assistance. Twelve of the 25 approved clients have already received a new pair of eyeglasses. One of the first to receive a new pair of eyeglasses through this program was Cheryl Bates. “I had gotten where I couldn’t see to read and I wouldn’t have my glasses without the Pharmaceutical Assistance Program,” acknowledged Bates. “I just want to say thank you. It was indeed a blessing!” Other clients who have received eyeglasses have been grateful as well. One vendor told the story of someone who received assistance. The client came to pick up her glasses and as the office manager was making the final adjustments, the client stated, over and over, how

well she could see and how thankful she was for the assistance. “We are also in the process of assisting someone with a lift chair. This applicant has had multiple surgeries and health problems which were making it very difficult to get in and out of a sitting position. And, we are assisting a client with prescription medication. His Medicare Part D requires him to pay quite a bit ‘out of pocket.’ This client was not able to pay this ‘out of pocket’ expense and was not taking required medication as prescribed,” stated Judy McLeod, coordinator for the program. The number of elderly and disabled citizens in West Tennessee continues to increase. Based on needs assessment surveys and other sources, there is a need for assistance in purchasing pharmaceutical supplies such as high cost prescription medication, eyeglasses, nutritional supplements, medical equipment and supplies. The funds for the Pharmaceutical Assistance Program are supplied through ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act), CSBG (Community Service Block Grant) and the

Tennessee Department of Human Services. This financial benefit is distributed through an agreement/voucher system and funds will be available for eligible applicants in our eight county service area until Sept. 30, or until funds are depleted. If you need assistance, you may complete an application at the Southwest Human Resource Agency Community Service Center in your county. You will need documented proof of income for everyone, 18 years of age or older, who is living in the home. Your entire household income must be within the 200 percent Federal Poverty Guideline. Once approved, applicants must provide a prescription or written order from physician stating the need for the requested item(s).

Each person can receive assistance once through this program and cannot have received assistance through any other program funded by CSBG (Community Service Block Grant). Because USDA Commodities and Chore Services are funded through CSBG, you cannot have received (or receive) Commodities between July 1, 2009 and Sept. 30, 2010. McLeod continues, “Providing this financial assistance is beneficial to individuals who need assistance and may eliminate the decision of choosing between these medical needs and having something to eat. It has been such a rewarding experience to be able to provide this assistance and we hope others will utilize this program in the next few months.”

Tennessee company donates home plans to area storm and flood victims, hopes for brighter futures Woodkrest, a local Tennessee company, is donating home plans to those in need from the recent tornadoes and flooding. Woodkrest originally made the offer to victims of the tornadoes that hit the Yazoo City, Miss. area but has extended the offer to their own Tennessee neighbors in need that have lost their homes or whose homes have sustained heavy damage from the flooding and storms. Living in and having family living in various areas of West Tennessee, Woodkrest’s owners are all too familiar with the terror and devastation left in the wake of tornadoes. Personal and family losses due to tornadoes gave Woodkrest the idea of helping those in need. Sometimes planning for the future in a new home offers more than just hope to those that have been devastated by such a mind numbing tragic event, it provides therapy by keeping anguished minds busy. Woodkrest has an

extensive website full of photographs and video clips which offer glimpses of traditional homes as well as the typical Woodkrest styles and

wants to offer their portfolio of home plans to those that really need it now as a donation to help the victims plan for their new, and hopefully

brighter futures. For more information, cal 901-385-0152, toll free 800-644-0152, or log on to http://www.woodkrest.net/index.html

Magazine legend to speak at Lane Lane College will conduct its Summer Graduation Ceremonies at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 13, in the J.F. Lane Health and Physical Education Building located on the college campus. Fiftyeight young men and women will be awarded baccalaureate degrees in the Arts and Sciences. Prominent author, former magazine editor, and Susan Taylor activist, Susan L. Taylor, will deliver the commencement address. Taylor is synonymous with Essence magazine, the brand she built – as its fashion and beauty editor, editorin-chief and editorial director. For 27 years, she authored one of the magazine’s most popular columns, In the Spirit. As the driving force behind one of the most celebrated Black-owned businesses for nearly three decades, Susan Taylor is a legend in the magazine publishing world. She was the first and only African-American woman to be recognized by the Magazine Publishers of America with the Henry Johnson Fisher Award – the industry’s highest honor – and the first to be inducted into the American Society of Magazine Editors Hall of Fame. She is the recipient of the NAACP President’s Award for visionary leadership. A fourth-generation entrepreneur, Taylor grew up in Harlem, working with her father in his women’s clothing store. She founded her own cosmetics company, a first for Black women, which led to the beauty editor’s position at Essence. She is the author of four books: In the Spirit: The Inspirational Writings of Susan L. Taylor; Lessons in Living; Confirmation: The Spiritual Wisdom That Has Shaped Our Lives, which she coauthored with her husband, Khephra Burns; and her most recent, All About Love, Favorite Selections from In the Spirit on Living Fearlessly. She is a much sought-after speaker, inspiring hope and encouraging her audiences to reclaim their lives and create sustainable communities. She is an avid supporter of a host of organizations dedicated to moving the Black community forward; but her passion and focus today is the National CARES Mentoring Movement, a call to action, which she founded in 2006 as Essence Cares. The National CARES Mentoring Movement is a massive campaign to recruit one million able adults to help secure children who are in peril and losing ground. “Not on our watch!” she says. “Our children are the mothers and fathers of our tomorrows, and their future is in our hands.” The goals of the CARES Movement are to increase high school graduation rates among African American students, and end the violence in Black communities and the over-incarceration of our young. “Creating safe, top-tier schools in every underserved community in this nation is the mandate—and it’s doable,” Taylor says. Taylor is a co-founder of Future PAC, the first national political action committee devoted to providing a network of support and sources of funding for progressive African American women seeking federal and statelevel political offices. She is co-chair, with actor Danny Glover, of Shared Interest, a capital campaign to raise money to build housing and encourage entrepreneurship in the rural areas of South Africa, and serves on the boards of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, and Girl Scouts of the USA. She has worked passionately to help restore the lives of people in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region who were devastated by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Taylor has received more than a dozen honorary degrees from numerous colleges and universities, including Lincoln University, Spelman College, Dillard University, Bennett College for Women, the University of Delaware, and her alma mater, Fordham University.

School System retirees Several members of the school system have announced their retirement this year.

UT-C announces Dean’s List Three Chester County students are among those listed on the Dean’s List for the spring semester, 2010, at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Buckle up and stop texting! (SPM Wire) The number of drivers and passengers who use seat belts has been climbing nationwide, according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns. National seat belt use has jumped from 58 percent in 1994 to 84 percent in 2009, due in large part to high-profile campaigns and enforcement. If only drivers nationwide would stop texting on cell phones while on the road, which greatly increases risk of accidents. Surprisingly, as of mid-2010, only about half

the states in the country have banned texting while driving, according to statistics from the NHTSA.
