School board changes policies As if the stresses of the dreaded TCAP tests were not intense enough, the state has now mandated that each school district adopt a policy for each student in grades 3-8, for the TCAP score to impact their actual semester grades. The board voted last Monday night at their monthly meeting to adopt a policy implementing 15 percent

of the student’s total TCAP score count as part of their second semester grade. Interim Supt. Cherrie Pipkin informed that the majority of schools in the area are noting 15 percent of the TCAP counts towards semester grades. She said she knows of only one school that implemented 20 percent affecting the students’

overall grade. “The purpose of this is that the students be accountable for the TCAP test, not just go in and mark answers,” said Pipkin. “We want them to actually go in and try hard. If the teachers have to be accountable for those scores, they want the students to be accountable, also.” The board also adopted a pol-

icy involving the student dress code stating students who are sent home because of dress code violation will not receive a zero for the day, but will get to make up their work. Pipkin stated Tennessee will receive $198 million in federal funding and $699,032 will directly benefit the Chester County school system. The federal funds can only be used at the school level for personnel. Pipkin outlined that after meeting with the administrative

team, it was decided the nearly $700K would be used to provide interventionists and teacher’s assistants in the classrooms. Pipkin added teachers are attending ‘learning communities’ where they can earn a $25 stipend an hour as they collaborate ideas with other teachers. “We won’t use all this money this year,” said Pipkin. “Next year we hope to have additional money left so that we can pick up additional salaries and maybe See SCHOOL, Page 2-A

Best of the Best in Chester County Firefighter

Al McKinnon Al McKinnon has been voted the top firefighter. McKinnon has been with the Jacks Creek station of the Chester County Fire Department for the past 16 years, the last seven as district chief. “I enjoy helping the people and the county. Somebody has to do it,” McKinnon said modestly. (Editor’s Note: Due to human error, this item was omitted from the Chester County Independent’s special section last week highlighting those persons voted the best in their profession in the county. We sincerely apologize to Mr. McKinnon for the omission.)

School continue some of the things we’re doing this year.” School board members also voted to accept bids on new camera systems for the school buses. To equip the entire fleet with the cameras would cost $70,000 or $2,300 per bus which includes a GPS system. “We probably have more phone calls concerning bus issues than any other thing in the school system,” reported Pipkin. “Our bus drivers have one of the hardest jobs in the school system. Getting them to and from school safely is their number one priority, but secondary to that is they have to maintain discipline for 60 to 70 kids on that bus. It’s almost an impossible job they’re asked to do and the bus cameras will help

with that. “With the cameras we have now we’re not able to see every part of the bus very well, and the resolution is not as good as the new cameras. And the new cameras have a wonderful sound system. We can pick up just about any part of the bus. The folks at the bus shop were just blown away with how much better the new cameras are than our current

system.” The board said after they receive all bids they will determine whether to move forward with purchasing the camera system or not. The board noted they will be conducting interviews with the five final superintendent candidates on Dec. 9 and approved a motion to extend Pipkin’s contract as interim superintendent until Jan. 31.

Business Masquerade The Bramblett Group accompanied with Frix-Jennings Clinic held a Halloween themed monthly Business After Hours last Thursday night as patrons were urged to wear masks celebrating the haunting holiday. According to the Brambletts, more than 125 people attended the event held at their studio office on Main Street. Chris Pate and Sean Martin entertained the group as they played their acoustic set. Besso’s, operated by Carey Frix, reported giving away 100 free single servings of gelato. The BAH was in conjunction with the Arts in the Alley, also.

Vendors prepare their booth before the Arts in the Alley event starts. Kimberlie Helton was on hand for the event managing the karaoke corner.

Little terrors also made an appearance at Arts in the Alley last Thursday night making the event a special treat and not pulling any tricks.

Commission to meet next Monday The Chester County Board of Mayor and Commissioners will meet at 7 p.m. next Monday night (Nov. 8) at the Chester County Criminal Justice Center. Their agenda includes the following: discuss the bid openings concerning the roof and air conditioners at Chester County Healthcare Inc., appoint one commissioner to the

UT Extension service commission, amend a resolution involving Arvin Sango, discuss possible expansion of the library, report from the tourism committee, discuss the 911 board term limit, approve the county’s application for the T-21 grant, and review officials and committee reports. The public is invited to attend the meeting.

Downtown Trick or Treat

Photos by Julie Pickard, Independent

Noah’s Ark Pre-school trick-or-treaters painted the town last Thursday as they ventured from business to business gathering goodies. This annual event is a favorite with kids, parents and downtown business owners.

Correction In last week’s edition the Independent unintentionally misinformed that inmate Johnny Hemby was being housed in the Chester County Criminal Justice Center for violation of parole, when in fact Hemby was incarcerated for violation of probation. Hemby was found dead in his cell last week. Authorities are currently waiting on the results of his autopsy to determine a cause of death. We apologize for this error.

This stew is always very good. I like to freeze it to have on a cold day when we are too busy to cook a whole meal but want something hot, it heats up great.

Has everyone noticed the new business in Enville on Main Street? There hasn’t been a car lot in Enville since the 1950s until now. Thanks to the couple who opened “Enville Motors” at 7838 Main Street, we have one once again. If you are looking for a truck, car, van, or even a motorcycle, don’t forget to check them out. Their hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, and sometimes available on Sunday You can also reach Enville Motor’s at 688-2015. I hope no one showed up for the Senior Luncheon last Wednesday, since it had been cancelled. To Alicia and Rick, you guys are awesome for having the Halloween party for all members of the CCHS band at your house Saturday. You opened your heart and home to these amazing, imaginative teenagers. They had a really good time as well as we did. Thanks also to the other parents who provided the hay ride, food, etc. Good food, and good spirits, just can’t beat it. Well done. I guess everyone knows by now that Daylight Savings Time ends Sunday, time to reset those clocks and get ready for cold weather. I look forward to potato soup, and dressing in layers. “If you want work well done, select a busy man the other kind has no time.” Elbert Hubbard

Now that the ghosts, goblins, and witches are behind us, we turn our attention to a time of thanks and remembering others. There were two fires that our guys helped respond to. One Sunday was a vehicle fire on Sweetlips Rd. The other was the Pine Hill School on Saturday. No injuries were reported. The mission group will be headed for Appalachia on November 9.

Our community meal will be Tuesday, November 9 at 6:30 P.M. Bring a dish and a drink and come join us. It seems Dillon and Fallon Faulkner had a quite nice 16th birthday.

Dan and Cindy

Piechocki recently had a little get away to Tellico Plains, Tenn. She said it was absolutely gorgeous, trees, mountains, and waterfalls. You just felt so in tune with mother earth.

Nov. 7; and Jeremy Evans on Nov. 8. Get well wishes to Phillip Ragan, Sonny Grimm, Winna Knipper, Archie Knipper, Dennis Bain, Edra Barnett, Freddie Murley Smith, Brenda Collins and Charles Murley. Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour Saturday night before going to bed. Scientists say, putting the clocks back in winter is bad for health, wastes energy and increases pollution, and putting an end to the practice in northern areas could bring major health and environmental benefits. Countries across Europe, the United States, Canada and parts of the Middle East mark the start of winter by ending Daylight Saving Time (DST) and putting their clocks back by an hour often in late October or early November — a move that means it is lighter by the time most people get up to start their day. But this also robs afternoons of an hour of daylight, and some experts argue that in more north-

ern regions, the energy needed to brighten this darkness, and the limits it puts on outdoor activities are harming our health and the environment. Leaving clocks alone as winter approaches would allow an extra hour of daylight in the afternoon and could boost levels of vitamin D as well as encourage people to exercise more. Almost half of the world’s population has lower than optimal levels of vitamin D, often called the sunshine vitamin. Vitamin D deficiency is a well-known risk factor for rickets and evidence suggests it may increase susceptibility to autoimmune diseases. Writing in the British Medical Journal on Friday, Mayer Hillman said research shows people feel happier, more energetic and have lower sickness rates in the longer, brighter days of summer, whereas moods and health decline during duller days of winter. Dr. Robert Graham of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York said leaving clocks alone in winter should be considered to

encourage people to get out more and get more exercise. High rates of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity are caused in part by lack of exercise — adults are advised to do 30 minutes moderate or vigorous activity a day, and children at least an hour. “As a society we are always looking for accessible, low cost, little-to-no harm interventions,” he said. “By not putting the clocks back and increasing the number of accessible daylight hours, we may have found the perfect one.” A study published earlier this year found that advancing clocks by an hour in the winter would lead to energy savings of at least 0.3 percent of daily demand in Britain.(From Reuters Life in London.) The Haunted Hollow was a great success. Thanks to all that came.

pirate cake! Quickly surrounded by those wanting to volunteer as crew on her ship, she left the port and headed for home steering the pirate cake. She decided to return the ship to port and its rightful owner – the cook with little musketeers! Aye, Captain – you did a good deed for first-class mates waiting to get a sugar high! Wonder if they were higher than the Ferris wheel kids rode, thanks to Nathan Ward and helper, Tommy Tignor. Bingo players heard the wagon pulling laughing kids on a sugar high, too. Wonder if birthday girl, Alma Robertson, got a sugar high as Freda and Jessica Hopkins, and Olivia Butler shared birthday cake. Precious Thomas says her family is sad about los-

ing a pet. Beverlyn Fuller loved “Sadie” for 12 years. She was a short-haired white dog that loved her family. She was a very smart dog. When she was called “LuLu” she’d come running! The use of that name meant she’d get to go into the house for a little visit. Who did the training? Life is so complete when we have that unconditional love and devotion of a furry family member. I feel Beverlyn’s pain. Snuggles has been gone six months and is missed each day. Those paw prints linger on our hearts forever. Bet all of you remember your first pet from childhood, too! Naomi Lott and I visited friends in the nursing home and enjoyed ice cream cones afterwards. It

tickled me when I spotted and could actually call a former student by his name. Sheno Ross didn’t know me for a few minutes, but then youth took over for him – he called me by name. He will always call Henderson and Chester County his home. A noon talk with Fentress Casey pulled this loving statement from his lips. He says his new location is satisfactory because he could no longer drive to his sons (Bobby and Jeff), but they can come to him for a visit in East Tennessee. He says he will be home before Christmas to visit Martha’s grave. Want to hear his comforting voice – call him (865-685-0233). We used our right to vote Tuesday. We owe this

right to all veterans and today’s military. The Pentagon released the names of 10 soldiers that died giving us this freedom. Veterans Day is Nov. 11. Wear red, white, and blue; fly Old Glory proudly. We live in the best country in the world. We are blessed! Our community expresses sympathy to the families of Elsie Maness Smith (3-1-1928/10-292010) and Glen Franklin Jones, Sr. (8-4-1947/10-312010). Often it is faith alone that keeps beckoning us toward the road of life. To keep on going, we have to keep on believing. Also, prayers are requested for Raford Nobles and my friend, Viola Patterson at healthcare. God bless you.

The community has lost a lifelong resident. Elsie Smith passed away on Friday, Oct. 29, 2010. Elsie was born March 1, 1928, and was an active member of the Hickory Corner Community Center for years. She will be remembered by all who knew her and loved her. Following the service on Monday, there was a meal for the family at the center. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. The Phillips School reunion will be held on Saturday, Nov. 13, at the Hickory Corner Community Center. A potluck meal will be served at noon. All who went to Phillips School are invited and also friends. Walt and Ann Bennett’s friends, Eli and Jane McCarter of Delanco, N.J., visited them last week. Eli and Walt both retired from Bell Telephone in Burlington, N.J. Also granddaughter Stephanie Bennett of St. Louis visited. Ann has had serious heart problems and says she is getting stronger as days go by. Russell and Joyce Clayton’s daughter, Dana and husband, Dave, and children, Jackson and Elise Shores of Alabama visited last week, and Debbie, Kermit, and children, Drew and Alex Lofton enjoyed a Halloween cookout at the Claytons. Get well wishes to our son, Terry, who is recovery from knee implant

surgery and is doing well. Remember the sick in prayer, our military and leaders of our country. Those celebrating birthdays are Judy Cranford on Nov. 1; Allison Smith on Nov. 4; Ophelia Jordon, Sara Maness and Cheryl Tice on Nov. 5; Gene Weaver on Nov. 6; Josie Frye on Nov. 9; Kim Tummins, Warren Goodwin, Trey Brewer and Daniel Brewer on Nov. 11; Cliff Hannah on Nov. 15; and our grandson, Andrew Patterson on Nov. 1. Happy anniversary to Sam and Jamie Kesler on Nov. 7. Hearts to our neighbors, Jim Cupples, who came over Saturday morning to help James get up the leaves. With all our trees, there’s many more leaves to fall. At 2 a.m., Sunday, Nov. 7, daylight saving time ends. Every spring we move our clock one hour ahead and lose an hour during the night, and each fall, we move our clock back one hour and gain an extra hour. Remember, spring forward, fall back helps people to remember how daylight saving time effects their clock at 2 a.m. on the second Sunday in March. We set our clocks forward one hour ahead of standard time and “spring forward.” We “fall back” at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday in November by setting our clock back one hour, returning to standard time. Veterans Day is Thursday, Nov. 11, a day to remember our military, and salute our veterans of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Veterans, we thank you. “God Bless America.” If you would like to reserve or rent the center for your special occasion, call 989-3315.

They really do shine! Students at Jacks Creek School raised $12,800 with help from family, friends, and businesses at the Saturday night Fall Fest. We arrived at 5 p.m. with hopes Ed Pitts would motion where we were to park, but no such luck. Guess Ed kept his turkey at home to share with two lucky dogs. The school floors were wax-shined, fresh painted walls, clean windows, a smiling Amy Wooley greeting guests, and areas of entertainment were

set-up for the crowd. Gary and Melinda Carroll were taking up meal tickets. I was trying to take up soft drink tabs for Wilma Hart. With all the excitement, tabs were left with Gary, but perhaps he took them to Wilma - “Miss Tabs” will not be hard to locate at Chester County Healthcare. During supper, Don and I nestled among the best – R.D. and Pauline Smith, Willis and Jean Hudson, and James and Vicki Ellis, and we scooted out of the way when Misti, Braelyn and Braxton Ellis needed seats. Good appetites, talkative friends, and anticipation in winning cakes, hollering bingo, or bidding silently were simple needs for the night. Lucky Charlotte Joyner won the best-decorated

E. Peddy, Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Clifford and Jimmie and Mr. and Mrs. Carl McAdams.” “Eagles Plagued By Injuries” “The Henderson Eagles and especially Coach Jack Brown will challenge any football team in West Tennessee to match this hard luck story. It seems that when it rains it just pours. One or two injuries a season of a minor nature are usually expected by a football team but when five injuries, and all broken bones, happen, it is unusual.” “Jimmy White was the first string full back in the first game of the season and played a bang-up game. Then in practice the next week a particularly hard tackle broke his collar bone. “Then in the Bemis game one of the finest young guards Chester County High has ever had, Joe Nuckolls, after making a fine tackle on the first play of the game, was stepped on by a Bemis player. “Then Bobby Cooley, one of the most elusive runners we have ever had, broke his collar bone in the Selmer game. “In the Loretto game Captain Dossie Talley, who had been moved to the backfield from his center position to bolster the unlucky backfield suffered a fractured leg in the first quarter of the game. “Then to add to the gloom Ronald Enoch who has been doing a fine job directing the team in the last two games along with Dan Guinn, frac-

Yes, girls. “The game will be played at Eagle Stadium beginning at 7 p.m. and will feature members of the Future Homemakers of America of Chester County High School. About 50 girls are expected to participate in the game. “The junior-sophomore team is being coached by Chucky Melton and the freshman-senior team has Mike Wilson as its head mentor.” “Restaurant Damaged” “The M & M Restaurant, located on Highway 45-S just inside the Henderson City Limits, was heavily damaged by fire about 8:30 p.m. Sunday.”

The Halloween party was a huge success; a big crowd was there in costumes. The members really rallied around and supported the cake walk and candies for the trick or treaters.

The biggest surprise was when Betty Cooper found out Ms. Morris was not able to climb the ladder and gather the pears herself because of her age and health problems. Betty Cooper gathered the pears and took them to Ms. Morris. She says there still are good people left in the town we live in. She sure was proud to get the pears. Belated birthday to

Poor judgement used in editorial cartoon Dear Editor: Cartoons are supposed to be funny. I could see no humor in the cartoon in your paper of October 21, 2010. There is nothing humorous about sending anyone to be buried in a mine. This cartoon, coming so soon after the rescue of the miner, shows a complete disregard for the feeling of many. I am sure this cartoon was not drawn by anyone connected with the Independent; but must have been approved by someone on the staff. After all, it was the “fat cats” who provided the equipment and the know how to rescue the trapped miners. It could not have been successful with a pick and shovel. If you want to send the “fat cats” into the mine, each one should be followed by some one in the news media. Your cartoon was certainly distasteful, degrading and ill timed. Joe Hardin Henderson

Two disparate celebrity views of energy and environment Just because you are famous and rich doesn’t automatically make you smart and respected. And Hollywood produces a greater share of idiots and boors than the average small town in America. These are not statistics, simply observations backed up by plenty of life experience. Take, for example, celebrities who involve themselves in controversial issues: activists who trade on their names and faces to advance a political position regardless of whether it is in the best interests of the United States and the majority of her citizens. Academy Award-winning moviemaker James Cameron (Avatar, Titanic, Aliens, Terminator) is just one of these celebrity activists who thinks he knows what’s best for the rest of us. At a renewable energy summit in August, he called climate change skeptics “swine” but backed out of a well-publicized debate he had set up with three global warming non-believers: Andrew Breitbart of Bereitbart.com, Marc Moreno of Climate Depot and documentary filmmaker Ann McElhinney. The news and entertainment media predictably buzzed. Cameron had challenged the trio, boasted he would “shoot it out” with them and had armed himself with several climate change scientists. He also controlled the rules of the debate, which morphed from a televised open forum to a closed-door affair where cameras would be banned. What was he afraid would happen and why did he unexpectedly cancel the shootout on the consensus about manmade global warming? Cameron’s publicist issued no plausible explanation for his bizarre behavior and change of mind, except to say he “should be debating someone who is similar to his stature in our society.” What an affront to the millions of Americans that Cameron and his followers would have pay for climate change mediation through higher taxes and energy costs. The Greeks had a word

for Cameron’s attitude: hubris. It means excessive pride and arrogance. So, who would Cameron, the moviemaker, consider to be an opposite equal, someone on his level of stature in our society and worthy of debating? Well, how about Bill Gates? Coincidentally, the Microsoft founder the same week made some perceptive comments about what should be done to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. He offered ideas for solutions that go against the grain of current environmental activist propaganda (read James Cameron here). Gates, for all his fame and fortune, didn’t get Cameron’s media play because his interview in MIT’s Technology Review wasn’t bombastic. Also, much of what he said makes sense. He favors a carbon tax over cap and trade, believes energy research is under-funded by at least $11 billion in the U.S. and that renewable energy sucks too much government support to the detriment of the R&D budgets for innovative technologies. He also warns not to expect energy efficiency to be a magic bullet for reduction of emissions. Whether or not you agree with him, give Gates credit for a reasoned approach. He takes into consideration money, time and the crucial importance of tech-

nological innovation. What a contrast to Cameron. Gates didn’t insult anyone or use curse words. He obviously didn’t follow the advice of a publicist and steer clear of controversial positions, because now he is getting pushback from environmental groups for not toeing the party line. Mr. Microsoft compared to James Cameron is like an inventor (which he is) to a religious fanatic. Cameron damns those who don’t agree with him, would blast them with Terminator-like political firepower (if he had any). Gates concentrates on the path to best get us from here to there. Cameron provided juicy copy and emotional sound bites. Gates, with his techno-centric opinions, would have caused eight-out-of-10 viewers to switch channels if his interview had been televised. But his message was far more important and worthy of national attention. The Breitbart-Morano-McElhinney debating team would have struggled to refute Gates on several points. Too bad the media chose to cover an angry celebrity with a self-important view of “his stature in our society” (and not many original ideas) over a bespectacled technology prophet with a proven track record of finding solutions to problems.

CCHS in post season Friday at Greenbrier

Eagle Toneal Bumpass stretches for the end zone in the second period of Chester County’s regular season finale Friday at Eagle Stadium.

High School Football Oct. 29 at Eagle Stadium Liberty Tech Chester County

“Our depth chart is a mash unit,” declared Chester County head coach Jeff Cupples following Friday’s loss. Cupples felt his staff had put together a good game plan against the Crusaders but fell victim to an extremely speedy Liberty roster. The visitors needed only three plays to score on the game’s first series. CCHS was in position to stop Liberty on the next series, holding them to a fourth down and six to go, but Tevin Bryant took the next play 33 yards for a score. Bumpass got most of his yardage on the next Eagle series, getting his team down to the oneyard line before Cavaness added the final yard for Chester County’s first score. However, that’s as close as they would get the rest of the game, with Liberty tacking up almost 600 yards of total offense. See CCHS, Page 3-B

Chester County will be making its school-record third straight playoff appearance when the Eagles take the field at 7 p.m. Friday in Greenbrier, 6-4. CCHS 5-5, just missed a chance to host a first round game when they were beaten at home Friday by Liberty Tech 5819. The Eagles are seeded No. 6 and the Bobcats No. 3 in the third quadrant of Class 4A. The victor plays Nov. 12 against the winner of Lexington versus Bolivar Central. CCHS had high hopes this season for a much higher seed, but injuries that continued throughout the season diluted the Eagles’ roster. Toneal Bumpass of the Eagles had 54 yards on only nine carries Friday before a hip injury ended his night midway of the second quarter. He is the third CCHS tailback this year to leave a game due to injury, with the previous two being lost for the season.

Chester County is playing at Greenbrier High School at 7 p.m. Friday in the first round of the TSSAA football playoffs. According to a spokesman for Greenbrier High School, to get to the stadium, go to Nashville and take Interstate Highway 65 N. Get off on Exit 98 and go south a short ways on Highway 31 to the intersection with Highway 41. Go north on Hwy. 41 through Ridgetop to Greenbrier, and the stadium will be

on the west side of the highway. The Bobcats are not a high-scoring team, having a season-high of 28 three times. They were shutout once, and scored only seven on another occasion. Chester County, however, was never shutout, and scored more than 28 points four times. Each team has been beset with multiple injuries. Greenbrier runs a wing-T offense similar to the Eagles. Most high school teams use a 4-4 align-

ment on defense, but not these two units. CCHS is one of the few teams using a 3-4, while the Bobcats will be the first team the Eagles have faced that used a 4-3. The teams appear evenly matched with each team’s opponents having a 47-53 record. Historically, the Eagles will be gunning for only their second-ever playoff victory. Greenbrier, however, played in the state championship game in 2004.

After narrowly missing out on a bid to the NAIA National Tournament last season, the FreedHardeman Lions basketball team is eager to earn another trip to Kansas City in 2011. The Lions open the season at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Sports Center hosting Bryan College.

Though a solid nucleus returns, the Lions did graduate two-time AllAmerican Zack Frey along with two other starters, Logan Greer and Kirtiss Brown. Leading the talented roster of returning players are Ken Bingham and Kyle Teichmann. Bingham (6-4; sr.) was named the TSAC Newcomer of the Year last season after averaging 15.4 points per game and

shooting 83.1 percent from the foul line. Teichmann (6-6; so.) earned Freshman of the Year honors, averaging 12.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. Also returning in the backcourt are Jesse Moulton (6-4; sr.) and Anthony Sampson (5-3; jr.). Moulton led the team in three-pointers made (66) while averaging 11.4 points per game.

Sampson, meanwhile, led the team in assists (4.1 per game) and steals (1.6 per game) while posting three games with double digits in assists. Those two will be joined by Brian Pearson (6-3; sr.), Cedric Austin (60, sr.), Jonathan Milewski (6-0, so.) and Michael Young (6-2, so.) to give the Lions a deep and talented See FHU, Page 3-B

Lady Lions open basketball season with victory

Freed-Hardeman freshman Karissa Dyer lays one up to the basket, defended by Asbury’s Lakin Griffith, in the second half of the FHU Lady Lions’ season-opener Saturday at the Sports Center.

The No. 9 FreedHardeman Lady Lions opened the new season with a 74-50 win over visiting Asbury University on Saturday afternoon in the Sports Center. FHU used a 12-1 run early in the second half to build a 16-point lead, and kept that lead in double digits the rest of the way. That run came of the heels of a 9-2 Asbury (0-2) run that saw the Eagles pull within five points at 39-34 with 16:34 left, but the Lady Lions responded by scoring on six of their next seven possessions with Meribeth Boehler and Summer Waggoner each scoring four points during the run. Asbury pulled within 12 points (55-43) at the 8:25 mark, but got no closer as Freed-Hardeman

outscored the Eagles 19-7 the rest of the way. Boehler dealt with double- and triple-teams the entire game but still managed to score 16 points and pull down 11 rebounds. Whitney Johnson was one rebound short of a double-double herself, with 13 points and nine boards. Waggoner came off the bench to add a career-high 12 points, 11 of which came in the second half. FHU head coach Dale Neal, though pleased to get a victory, expressed his concern about the Lady Lions’ defense. “Fundamentally it wasn’t a very good ball game,” said Neal. “First games are sometimes ragged like that.” Neal was also concerned about 15 turnovers

by his team. “Against that defense that’s way too many, and many of them were our fault,” he stressed. The Lady Lions return to action at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, as they host No. 12 University of the Cumberlands.

Missed chances in FHU loss to Middies The Freed-Hardeman Lions saw their five-match soccer winning streak come to an end on a cold Saturday night after a 2-1 loss to Mid-Continent University, a loss that will likely leave them thinking about what could have been. The loss drops the Lions (12-4, 3-3) into fifth place in the TranSouth Conference and leaves them needing a win on Tuesday to secure a homefield match in the first round of the upcoming conference tournament. Mid-Continent (8-9-1, 52), meanwhile, secured the No. 2 seed. The Cougars controlled the run of play for much of the first half and led 2-0 at halftime, but FHU recovered in the second half and looked like a different

team. Unfortunately, several near misses and one costly no-call in the box kept the Lions from evening the score. After getting out-shot 12-3 in the first half, the Lions turned the tables and took 12 shots of their own after halftime. But despite getting good chances, they could not tie the match before time expired. Kenniel Hyde’s strike to the left post in the 62nd minute beat MCU keeper Adam Lewis, but a Cougar defender was in the right spot to clear the ball away before it crossed the line. The Lions suffered two more near misses in the 67th and 68th minutes when Guilherme Dorigo’s shot went inches wide of the right post and Nolan

Beede’s left-footed strike from 15 yards out sailed just over the crossbar. FHU looked to be on its way to a penalty kick in the 77th minute when Hyde, with the ball at his feet in the box, was knocked down from behind. However, play was allowed to continue and the Cougars were able to clear the ball. Freed-Hardeman finally got on the board in the 83rd minute when Dorigo’s hard strike rebounded off of Lewis’s hands to Phillip Baier, who touched the ball to the right post to bring the Lions within a goal. The Lions’ last chance came in the 88th minute, when Archibold Marowa sent a well-placed through ball to Simbarashe Zvaita

CCHS Chester County got two kickoff returns for scores by Ryan Turner in the second half. He galloped 76 and 93 yards. Turner also had a 58-yard punt return in the first half. The Crusaders, playing separate units on offense and defense, nonetheless had their first team offense on the field each time throughout the game, even in the final minute. Instead of taking a knee and running out the clock, Liberty added its final score on a padthe-statistics, run-up-thescore, TD on the game’s final play. Other notable plays for CCHS included a first quarter sack by Zach Malone, a successful onsides kick by Brandon Rodriguez that was recovered by Tanner Beecham, and a 42-yard fumble return by Jake Melaro.

Senior Night Chester County seniors celebrated their final home game Friday with recognition before the contest. Senior players include Brandon Rodriguez, J.D.

Thursday, November 4, 2010

Inside CCHS by Meghan Black Thursday was the high school’s annual Miss Henderson pageant. The court was as follows: Queen – Taylor Fortune; First Maid – Peyton Jenkins; Second Maid – Daela Whited; Third Maid – Morgan Williams; and Fourth Maid – Madison Hurst. Congratulations to all of these girls. Thank you to all who came to support the girls. This past Friday, the high school hosted a college and career fair for the juniors and seniors. Many of the local colleges had representatives there. Among these colleges were Union University, Freed-Hardeman University, Jackson State Community College, University of Tennessee Martin, and Bethel University. The

Greetings from East Chester! Last week at East Chester, students were trying their best to do the right thing to earn orange fall festival tickets. Good behavior earns students tickets to play games at the fall festival day for students on Friday, Nov. 5. Speaking of fall festival! It is this Saturday, Nov. 6. Drive for Dodge will be begin at 4 p.m. in the front of the school. For every car that is test driven, East Chester will receive a donation. Turkey and dressing ($7) and hotdog plates ($4) are still on sale through Tuesday, Nov. 2. They will be sold at the door on Saturday. Turkey and dressing will be $8 and hotdog will be $5. Takeout

plates will begin at 4 p.m. You can come and dine-in from 4:30-6:30. All students at the festival at 4:30 will be singing on stage in the gym. Immediately following the singing, a live auction will begin. Items to be auctioned are classroom items made by individual classrooms and gift baskets put together by individual classrooms. We also need silent auction items. If you can donate something, please let one of the kindergarten teachers at East Chester know. The silent auction will begin at 5 p.m. and end at 7 p.m. If you can make cakes or cupcakes for the cake walk, please have those to school on Saturday before the fall festival begins. Fun fall games will begin at 5:30! It is going to be a great time for all! Please come out and support our school! Kindergarteners have been busy learning about fall things. They enjoyed fun center fall parties. Thanks to all the parents for donating items and coming to help out at our fun fall parties and making them a success. Students graphed boo mallows, made pattern Halloween bracelets and ate delicious

Halloween treats. Everyone in kindergarten has been working hard to learn to write their numbers in math. Kindergarteners have been focusing on letters and sounds and learning to blend letters to make words. In Mrs. Melissa Allen’s class, Meribeth Boehler, an FHU senior basketball player from Selmer, came and read Halloween books to her class on Thursday. The first grade hall has sounds of Christmas coming from it. They are busy learning and practicing the songs for their Christmas play. The 1st graders will present their program at the PTO meeting on Dec. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at Williams Auditorium. Then Dec. 8, they will present the Christmas program for the East Chester students to enjoy. The title of the play is “The Incredible Reindeer” and it should be incredible! The 2nd graders have been reading “Dear Juno.” The have been reading how the character communicates with their grandparents in a different country. Students compared and contrasted different types of communication from long ago and today’s

communication methods. Tuesday, students enjoyed a strongman assembly in the gym.

The Junior High is very excited to introduce our very own mascot! Jacob Varno, an eighth grade

student, plays the part as he entertains the crowd at each basketball game with his team spirit and silly antics. He is an added bit of fun for each game and we are glad to have him as part of our team! The Eagles and Eaglettes will play a basketball game on Nov. 4 in Decatur County. The girls’ junior varsity team will play before the varsity on that night. Both varsity

teams will also play on Monday, Nov. 8, at home against Selmer. On that night, however, the boys’ junior varsity team will play before the varsity plays. I encourage you all to come and support our Junior High basketball teams! All seventh graders will take a Constructive Response Assessment Nov. 8-10. Students will take a specific part of the

test for 45 minutes each day in Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics and Science. This is a test similar to the TCAP. Yearbooks can still be purchased online (www.smart-pay.com), by phone (1-800-853-1337), or by mail. Please do not send any money to school for these. For any other information, contact Mrs. Davis.

CHESTER COUNTY INDEPENDENT • Thursday, November 4, 2010 Page 5-B class would also like to welcome their student teacher, Mrs. Ashley Floyd. Mrs. Ashley is a student at FreedHardeman, and her hometown is Pottsboro, Texas. Our first grade teachers would like to thank students and parents who participated in parent involvement night this past week, with special thanks going to Mrs. Sarah Hibbett. Mrs. Sarah talked with parents about what’s expected of students in math this year and how they can help them reinforce those skills at home. The second grade took their fall field trip to the Tennessee Safari Park in Alamo on Thursday; students enjoyed learning all about the interesting animals that live there. The classes also stopped by the University of Tennessee Agricultural Center on the way back to school to view the creative pumpkin display, featuring 5,000 pumpkins and gourds. The second graders and their teachers would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped on the trip. Mrs. Lisa Hardy’s class is excited to welcome their student teacher, Ms. Megan Marshall, to their class. Third graders traveled to Falcon Ridge Farm on Friday and spent the day navigating a corn maze while they answered trivia questions about spiders, searching for the perfect

pumpkin in the pumpkin patch, enjoying a hay ride and time to play, and petting animals in the petting zoo. For many, the favorite activity of the day was the horse show, featuring a world-class Tennessee Walking Horse. Students were amazed to learn that these horses wear high-heeled shoes and special bracelets to help them walk in such a unique way. We invite you to help support the students at West Chester by eating pizza. That’s right! Starting Nov. 1, Skinner’s Food Mart and Hunt Brother’s Pizza have teamed up to sponsor a fundraiser for West Chester. When you purchase a pizza from Skinner’s, $1 will be donated to the school. All you have to do is save your proof of purchase from the pizza box and return it to school; the class in each grade level that brings in the most proofs of purchase will receive a pizza party. It will all start with a special fundraiser kick-off event on Nov. 1, when Mrs. Amy Eaton, Mrs. Starla Bogard, and other faculty and staff serve as celebrity chefs for the evening, cooking up piping hot pizzas for hungry students and their families. Stop by, enjoy a pizza, and know that you’re helping the wonderful kids at West – Where Everyone Stands Tall!

Tenn. College funding program (REDI) receives $200,000 boost The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the Southwest Tennessee Development District today announced available funding for the Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI), a 12-county collaboration (including Chester County) in West Tennessee. The REDI College Access program provides mentors to help high school seniors and non-traditional students prepare for the college application and financial aid process. “Outreach programs like REDI are planting the seeds of Tennessee’s economic growth,” says Labor Commissioner James Neeley. “Any encouragement and resources we can provide for college hopefuls is a step in the right direction when meeting future

employer needs.” The two REDI College Access Coordinators and community volunteers work with students in the 22 REDI high schools to advise students on the college application process with the goal of increasing the number of students entering into some type of postsecondary education. One-thousand two-hundred students and 440 volunteer mentors are currently participating in the program. The funding provided in this announcement will provide additional staff and funding for the program though 2011. Counties participating in the REDI program include the following: Chester, Crockett, Decatur, Fayette, Gibson, Hardeman, Hardin, Haywood, Henderson, Lauderdale, McNairy and Tipton. “Many high school

graduates have the foundation for success, but still need further training to realize their career goals. We can’t let the current economy discourage these high school graduates from taking advantage of higher education,” said REDI Director Lisa Hankins. The Southwest Tennessee Development District received the “2010 Innovation Award” from the National Association of D e v e l o p m e n t Organizations Research Foundation for its Regional Economic Development Initiative. REDI is the only program in Tennessee to have received this distinction. Visit Southwest Tennessee Development District’s website at www.swtdd.org/ or call 731.668.7112 for more information on REDI.

Thanks to everyone at West Chester, our fall festival was a great success. PTO President Phyllis Crawford estimates that the festival raised approximately $22,000, all of which will be used to fund projects right here at West. Fall festival royalty include King Kaleb Maness, Queen Madison Hopper, Prince Seth Wilson, and Princess Emma Grace Miller. Jake Brown, son of our own Emily Brown, won the largest cake at the cake walk, a six-foot-tall Frankenstein cake! Those attending the festival enjoyed pork chop dinners cooked by Mayor Dwain Seaton, silent and live auctions, a cake walk, a toy walk, carnival games, moon bounces, horse rides, and more! This past week, the kindergarten classes at West had cowboy day. Each student took a ride on a stick horse in a horse race and learned about the various jobs of a real cowboy. Mrs. Misty Hall’s
