Charges dropped against city attorney According to Jackson City Court, c h a r g e s a g a i n s t Henderson city attorney, Jerry Spore, have been SPORE dropped, Monday. Spore was charged with burglary of a motor vehicle in Jackson on Jan. 14 at an altercation at Cracker Barrel restaurant on Vann Drive. According to the affidavit, Spore became irate because another customer’s vehicle was blocking the driveway. The customer alleged that Spore pulled beside him and began cursing at him, to which the customer replied by indicating an obscene gesture. He then alleged that Spore exited his vehicle and began punching him through his own car window. Also according to the affidavit, during the assault, Spore’s vehicle rolled back and damaged the other customer’s driver side mirror. Spore has been serving as city attorney since October 2004. Spore practices with Spragins, Barnett and Cobb, PLC, and in addition to serving in Henderson, currently serves as city attorney for Three-Way and Medina.

According to Chester County’s emergency management director Mike Burkhead, the Chester County area received nearly half a foot of snow this weekend, ample enough, providing a winter wonderland playground for residents. “It varied at different places throughout the county,” Burkhead said. “In the northwest part of the county (near the Wilson School Road area) we got fiveand-a-half inches out there.” Burkhead said the southern part of the county saw more ice, less snow. “Just a couple miles south of Hwy. 100 they got dusting snow, but a lot more ice,” he added. “About half an inch of ice in Masseyville and Woodville.” Snow began to fall Friday morning, with sleet and ice precipitation following through the afternoon. Chester County schools announced their closing Friday and remained closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday due to dangerous driving conditions throughout the county. “It snowed, then iced, so it will taker longer for that snow to melt,” Burkhead explained. Some scattered power outages were reported on Saturday morning in the Jacks Creek area and on Old Friendship Road. “Everything was back on Saturday evening,” informed Trent Scott, VP of marketing and energy services with Southwest Tennessee Membership Corporation. “All were result of trees in the line.”

It snows, now and then, in Henderson including a big snowfall Friday which gave children a vacation from school for three days. On Jan. 6, 1970, another snow storm hit, as evidenced by the second photo which appeared in the Independent 40 years ago. (Additional photos, page 11-A)

Chili Bowl heats up a wintery night By Holly Roeder Staff Writer

Crime Stoppers offers reward in missing golf cart case For the second time in three months, thieves have hit Chickasaw Golf Course. When managers arrived at the course Monday, they discovered that someone had gained entry into the golf cart shed by cutting a chain. Two golf carts were missing and, according to a report from the Chester County Sheriff’s Department, it was determined that the carts were driven through the parking lot and around the gate at the entrance leading to Highway 100. Foot prints were visible in the snow leading from Boo Trail. Later, two decals believed to have been removed from the carts were found. This is the second time the golf course has been hit. Sometime around Oct. 30-31, 2009, someone entered the Chickasaw Golf Course property, cut a lock on the golf See THEFT, Page 3-A

Mary Maness, representing the West TN Children’s Home serves up some of her special brewed chili to a fellow competitor Monday night. Maness also served up some competition, bringing home two second place trophies in the traditional category and People’s Choice.

The Henderson Police Department was named ‘Grand Champions’ at the third at the third annual Chili Bowl sponsored by FHU’S office of Alumni Relations. Representing the HPD are: Jason and Mandy Rhodes and Jennifer and Gary Davidson.

Fourteen vendors arrived, slowcookers in hand, at the third annual Chili Bowl at Freed-Hardeman University Monday night to share their famous family recipes and topsecret ingredients in hopes of taking home “the big one,” The Grand Prize and with it the trophy-grande. The same contest with a different spin brought a good-sized crowd to the FHU sport center auxiliary gym despite the icy streets and snow-piled curbs. All proceeds, $675, went to the family of fallen Henderson police officer, Captain Dennis Cagle. Recipes varied widely, from traditional recipes including ground beef and peppers and onions, to non-traditional recipes including chicken, ground turkey, sausage or deer. All contained unique seasonings and spices, lending a pungent aroma to the atmosphere. Most teams had a secret weapon, something they hoped would set them apart from the others, and guarantee them a place at the winner’s table. The Diamond Jaxx team passed out samples of a spicy chili made with ground turkey, while Team Interface tempted tasters with a sweeter tomato based chili. FHU team PKA and GTO offered “Miss Ruth’s Spicy Chili” a recipe obtained from a friend of the team’s head chef. Miss Ruth, he said, “was an incredible Christian lady and the most phenomenal cook.” She died in December at the age of 90, and so, this Chili Bowl entry was a tribute to her. He explained her recipe uses hot sausage, which makes it different from the others. “The sausage separates it from the rest of the crowd. It’s a different flavor, a different heat.” Will Young of team Xi Chi and XBX attributed his chili recipe to experimenting in the kitchen from the time he was in 7th or 8th grade. He said he adapts it a bit each time he makes it, See CHILI, Page 9-A

Ward suspects to appear before judge, Friday Two suspects charged in the slaying of an elderly Chester County woman will appear in a Chester County courtroom, Friday which will likely be their last appearance before their trial slated for March 23. Tashundra Mosley and John Thomas Freeland both face first degree murder charges for the 2009 murder of Carolyn Ward. Ward was found dead on Dry Creek Lane on March 7 after she allegedly was abducted from Fred’s Discount Store around 2 p.m. that afternoon. Ward’s car was found burned in south Madison

County near Beech Bluff. Evidence in the case has linked three suspects to the homicide and all possess previous criminal records involving, among other charges, aggravated assault, forgery, theft, and possession of drug paraphernalia, plus various driving charges. The third suspect, Marcus Thompson, had an appearance hearing in Jackson court in late November. He is currently being held in a state correctional facility in Henning and is not scheduled to be in court until his trial date on March 23.

The recent earthquakes in Haiti have left thousands without homes, jobs and families. Streets are littered with glass and metal, and thousands of survivors are without proper footwear. Soles4Souls, a global footwear non-profit organization, has been counting on the influence of interested individuals since 2004 to help meet the needs of at-risk areas around the world. The charity relies on the individual efforts of concerned citizens who have a heart of giving. Soles4Souls attempts to be thoughtful and thorough in their estimation of needs before sending shoes to an area. Therefore, the group sends footwear that is appropriate to the climate and conditions of a certain area. In Port-au-Prince, Haiti where there are really no safe walking areas because of sewage and debris, clean, durable shoes are essential. At Freed-Hardeman University, there is at least one individual who has been a catalyst to this effort. Arianne Krulish, a senior at FreedHardeman, is enlisting fel-

Theft cart storage, and took two other carts, valued at $2,000 each. The carts each bore the Bear Trace logo. The chargers were cut and removed from the carts. The serial tags and logos were both found in the area.

low students, faculty and friends in a mission to meet the sizable goal of 10,000 pairs by Feb. 11. Soles4Souls faculty contact, Dr. Greg Massey acknowledged the tendency of some to display hesitancy in giving but says, “This is much more tangible…even one pair of shoes makes a difference.” Krulish challenges fellow FHU students to pledge only two pairs of shoes to the Soles4Souls effort and is looking to area businesses, schools and churches to do the same: “If everyone gave two pairs, we’d already be halfway there.” In recent weeks, Soles4Souls has gained the support of Payless Shoes, Jackson Christian, Chester County Schools and several others. Krulish hopes that many more businesses will pledge a specific amount of shoes. She said, “If everyone makes a goal that is somewhat challenging and sticks to it, I have no doubt that we can get 10,000 pairs.” While the disaster in Haiti was what spurred the reaction of so many Freed-Hardeman students, Krulish said, “This

is a great avenue of service. This is what Christians ought to be doing.” Freed-Hardeman seeks to work alongside the community of Henderson to make this dream reality for thousands of Haitians in need. Businesses are encouraged to set out clearly labeled boxes for this purpose and to bring them to any drop off location before deadline on Thursday, Feb. 11. The Gardner Center lobby, the library and the lobby of Loyd Auditorium are all FHU drop off locations. If businesses are not able to bring the shoes, they may contact Krulish at (716) 499-7029 or Dr. Greg Massey at 989-6067. While this all seems easy enough, the Soles4Souls volunteers at FHU will need plenty of help consolidating, rubber banding, packaging and transporting the shoes, so any other help would be greatly appreciated. From here, the footwear will be moved to the Soles4Souls headquarters in Nashville where they will be sorted, cleaned, laced and shipped to their ultimate destination in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

Old man winter blasted us with sleet, snow and ice beginning Friday morning. We lost power Friday at 8 p.m. We were thankful for our gas heaters and gas grill, as we were able to stay warm and have some hot food. Some in the community had to go stay with relatives. The evenings were so quiet with no TV… just James snoring. As I sat by the light of the old kerosene lamp, my mind wandered back to another time and another place. I remembered those cold winter evenings growing up, standing by the fireplace, burning on one side and freezing on the other. I’d jump into bed and wake up the next morning to the smell of breakfast cooking on the old wood cook stove. As we look back on those long ago days, our generation not only survived, we may well have become better and stronger because of the experience of hard times. Our wonderful parents who lived through those times were so brave and so strong, and helped to make our country what it is today. On Sunday, just when I was about to enjoy another quiet evening, the power came on and so did the TV. Thanks to the

Pickwick Electric crew who worked overtime to repair the damage. Happy birthday to Garret Hathcock on Feb. 2; Vadeen Reddin, Lois Garner and Adrian Weaver on Feb. 6; Ellna Roland on Feb. 9; Mandy Cooper, Wanda Joyce Burkeen and Linda Byrd on Feb. 11; Dawn Clayton and Deonna Morrison on Feb. 12; Nichole Travis on Feb. 13; Candice Wherington, Paul Clayton and J.C. Patterson on Feb. 14; Nathan Clayton on Feb. 15; Randall Jones on Feb. 16; Kristy Hathcock on Feb. 17; and Gail Seratt, Morene March, Kate Sanford and Martha Newsome on Feb. 18. Happy anniversary to Dennis and Erma Dean Clayton on Feb. 5. Someone left a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers on our back steps on our anniversary, Jan. 27. Walt and Ann Bennett celebrated their special day Jan. 31, and someone left a cake and potato soup at their back door on Jan. 30. Back door friends are the best. The Valentine party at the center will be Saturday, Feb. 13. A potluck dinner will be served at 6 p.m. Bring prizes for the bingo table. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy the food, fun and fellowship. It is with a sad heart that I write this. I received word that my niece’s husband, John Clayton, passed away Monday. Keep Pam and the family in your thoughts and prayers. God bless!

Never fear it could snow again! Last year it snowed on Feb. 28, so this Jan. 29 snow and sleet could be the beginning sign of a wintery season (just trying to win school kid friends and influence weather). The snow started at 9 a.m. and the sleet followed at 12:45. Jacks Creek didn’t lose electrical power like Enville on Friday. We are blessed with emergency teams that risk broken limbs or other health issues to help others. I saw an ambulance and Southwest trucks passing to help during this snow. The wait for the car hood ride was in vain. Charlotte Joyner saw an old car hood being hauled in a pick-up. She thought the group was going for

ole Pat, but it was not to be. I had my nose to the window pane looking, waiting and hoping, but the neighborhood and car hood were not a part of my day. So, I simply used my grandmother’s quad to slide as I fed birds. Annie McAdams Wilkins, from Memphis, definitely reads this paper. When talking to her on the phone she asked if I had ridden the car hood. I was disappointed to tell her, these old bones were home. Perhaps a good thing, I am old enough to know better than gamble being pulled on a car hood driven by Larry Rhodes or Rocky Hopper at full speed. Kind deeds were a part of this snow. Don was pleasantly pleased when Darron and Brianna Bailey offered assistance; they spied jumper cables under a raised hood. Later that day Delana left work to check on her mother. Later she attempted to leave, but the icy snow tickled her tires; she was stuck! Donnie Taylor

Jacks Creek Community Club News Forty-three people including a few guests met on Thursday, Jan. 14, 2010, for the monthly Jacks Creek Community Club meeting. First Lady Kathy Mays had beautifully decorated the tables with white tablecloths and candles. Raul Figueroa had lit a wonderful fire in the fireplace. President Ralph Mays welcomed everyone, Joy Figueroa led the group in song and Dwight Jones led the meal prayer. After a wonderful meal, President Mays started

the business meeting with wonderful news. Club member Mark Holloman has welcomed his third grandchild. Mays continued discussing expenses and asked for suggestions for entertainment for this year. Kathy Mayes discussed attendance for 2009. The average attendance was 49 members per meeting. Those members who had perfect attendance were Bill Moore, Dwight Jones, Shelley Pusser, Tom Mullins, Kathleen Mullins,

Kay Robison, Newsome Jones, Lloyd Richardson, Ralph Mays and Kathy Mays. Vice President Patsy Nobles Jones was right at work with her new title. Congratulations go to her. Shelley Pusser volunteered to be the club’s new photographer. Frozen fried pies are still for sale at $1 each. Peach, apple or chocolate are available. Call Kathy Mays at 9897988 for information. Birthdays for December were Shirley Nelson, Jean Rouse, Elaine Smith and Carolyn

Hudson. January birthdays are Ralph Mays, Bryton Dempton and Shelley Pusser. The only anniversary for December was Leon and Kay Robison.

Next month’s meeting is at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 11. Guests are welcome to attend and bring a covered dish or dessert.

We sure had a nice snowfall this past week. It is such a delight to watch children, and those children at heart laughing while freezing, as they build a snowman, sled down a hill, or lie down to

make an angel. There is just something about snow that makes us smile even when our vehicles have slid in a ditch or the electricity has gone out. Did you know, the first known snowplow was pulled by horses through the “snow-clogged streets” of Milwaukee in 1862. Or that, a falling snowflake may take up to two hours to reach the ground, and even the heaviest snowflake falls at only one mile per hour. Of course, the fact that is

usually most meaningful to children when it comes to a wonderful snowfall can be described in two words, no school. These two words put such a gleam in their eyes that you would think it was Christmas all over again. Happy birthday wishes go to Delana O’Neal on Feb. 6; Alana Davis on Feb. 7; Michelle Roe on Feb. 8; Luke Keen on Feb. 9; and Timmy Culpepper on Feb. 10. There are no anniversaries for this week that I

am aware of. The Enville Volunteer Fire Department will meet on Thursday, Feb. 4. Let’s pray for the sick, our troops and their families. Life isn’t measured by the amount of breaths we take, but by the amount of moments that take our breath away! If you have news, an event, or just something you would like to share, call me at 989-0212 or email me at Envillecommunitynews@ yahoo.com.

I don’t think I want to see any more snow this winter after three days confined to the house. Boring! I hope everyone stayed safe. Remember our sick this week: Jean Murley and

Winna Knipper are two pretty sick ladies. Please pray for their recovery. Also, Gloria Blankenship, Larry Privett, Angela Benfield, Teresa Colbert, Earl Mainers and Peggy Weaver. We wish them all the best care and God’s blessings. Birthdays this week are Joe Gilchrist on Feb. 4; Cecil Murley on Feb. 5; Brad Henson (my son-inlaw), Meagan Barnett and Raghen Morton on Feb. 6; Larry Rose on Feb. 7; Bobby Tully, Ashley Fish and Anna Grace Howell on

Feb. 8; and Keith Escue and Carolyn Goff on Feb. 9. Congratulate these on another year on God’s green earth if you see them this week. Some ladies of Bethel Baptist Church met on Thursday for our first day meeting. We are going to meet on the last Tuesday of every month at 10:30 a.m. for brunch. All ladies are invited to attend for good fellowship, Bible study and once we’re organized we’ll have projects for the needs of the community.

Our quote of the week: I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances. – Martha Washington Hope you have a great week. Be safe. Report your news at 983-0522. Our community website is www.deanburgcommunityclub.webs. com

Some of us got what we were hoping for and more! The children, of course, were beside themselves. The snow was beautiful, but then got so bad you couldn’t see across the road. Not much was moving out our way, but there are always those who are going to test the waters,

so to speak. There were several vehicles in ditches, but no injuries reported. Remember the stew/bake sale is Saturday, Feb. 6. You should get your roast and baked goods to the center on Friday. Meat should be cooked, de-boned, and left in its own juices. Bring your own containers. Stew will be ready around 10:30 a.m. Those of you that are helping peel potatoes need to meet at the center at 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5. Bring your favorite knife. Remember, the stew goes quickly… come early, or reserve by calling Neal at

989-7342, JoAnn at 9897523 or Cindy at 9897046. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Sweetlips Store will be taking orders for chocolate or creamed cheese dipped strawberries. They have creamed cheese berries to try right now. Call 9892156 for information. On our prayer list are Teresa Colbert, Lysa Wilkes, Allen Rietz, Maurine Foster, Chuck Farley, Mary Lynn Stanford, Betty Stout, Lucy Martin, Summer Dare, Rayford Mayfield, Jamie Hardin, Jeanette Jones, Jean (Dewey)

Pickett, Chrissy Busby, Thelma Pritchard, Sonny and Mickey Russell, and our military and their families. Happy birthday to Alec Gatley on Feb. 7 and Nick Moody on Feb. 9. Happy anniversary to Tiny and Diane Bullman on Feb. 8. If you have news to share, call 989-7523. Thought for the week: You are writing a gospel, a chapter each day, by deeds that you do, by words that you say.

passed by and offered to simply pull Delana’s car out of the snow, but never fear when a mother goes to the rescue! Fran got a hoe to clear the icy snow; and with help from Darron and Brianna Bailey their efforts won. Fran Bailey helped cook her own birthday supper last Wednesday! It started out with Delana cooking, but Fran grabbed a pot and four bags of butter beans. After meat was fried, potatoes mashed, and corn creamed, the guests settled around the table. Enjoying the feast were Stan and Delana O’Neal; Debbie and little Kylan King; Darron, Tammy and Brianna Bailey; and Don and Pat Jones. Don presented yellow daisies to Fran for a birthday that nearly contained a zero in that number. Fran is thinking this birthday her joints are a more accurate meteorologist than the national weather service. At this party little Kylan was busy playing Patty Cake clapping games. Kylan petted Dusty and spoke the word

“puppy’ at age 7 months. Debbie and Pat were the only witnesses, but we’re sticking to the story… even if Kylan didn’t say the word again! Old Time BBQ has a new piglet that will not go on the pit. Abigail Lynn was born Jan. 27, 2010, topping out at 9 pounds 13 ounces. There is a lot of pink in that household with Abigail’s siblings Gabriel (age 8); Samantha (age 5); and Eva (age 3). Looks like parents, Chris and Angela Siler have a nice little litter. The proud daddy said Abigail means my Father’s rejoices. Congratulations on the birth of your third daughter. The Mayor of Jacks Creek and board of trustees – Jane Morris, Neva Harvey, Charlotte Joyner, Jean Tignor, and Faye Ross, surprised an innocent Loy McAdams Jones for a birthday pizza party. Dessert was a chocolate coconut pizza dessert. It’s hard to believe we ate the whole thing! Maybe friends of

Barry Joyner (Feb. 6 birthday) and friends of Faye Ross (Feb. 8 birthday) will be hungry and carry them out for a pizza bash. Faye could be having a bad sign for this birthday. Her metal garage roof caved-in from the weight of the snow. Her car had a little damage. Glad she wasn’t looking for a birthday gift that she thought might be hidden in the trunk! We extend our sympathy to the families of Marvin Elbert Vestal (6-524/1-27-10); son of William Elbert and Reba Lee Meadows Vestal, and husband of Dorothy Janice Cochran Vestal. He was formerly from Luray and Dorothy was from Jacks Creek. They moved to Huntingdon. Marvin was a WWII vet and a kind gentleman from the greatest generations. He was a good daddy to Elbert Vestal, Dianne Brewer, Mary Moody, and Martha Ferrari. Also, sympathy is extended to the families of Susie McAdams Koverman (8-7-55/1-3110), daughter of Gale and

Willie Lee Maness McAdams. She was a nurse and retired major from the US Navy. Burial will follow with full military honors at Unity Cemetery. Her siblings are Warren, Robert, William, Jamie, Johnny, Ann Stone, and Nancy Smith. Her aunt is Loy Jones from Jacks Creek; and aunt, Betty Dunivan, and uncle, Jack McAdams, are from Henderson County. Also, Stan O’Neal has lost a dear friend in Enville. Gary Weeks (7-457/2-2-10), son of Elvin and Wanna Mae Weeks from Adamsville and husband of Nancy Knight Weeks, died Tuesday morning. Spending time with friends is priceless. God bless all these families. Let’s hope Lucy Martin and Carolyn Potter will not see their shadows anywhere except at home for six more weeks while they are improving with health issues. Did Mr. Ground Hog see his shadow? I love snow, and so do the school kids!

Opinion

Is Hamlett and University closure a wise decision? Dear Editor, I am writing to express my opinion of the closing of Hamlett Street and University Street within Freed-Hardeman’s campus. Already, I have noticed a significant increase in the number of cars that have to use Mifflin Avenue. This is especially true of high school students and parents taking/picking up students who normally use Hamlett Street to avoid the large backup of traffic on Main Street. With no traffic control at Mifflin, the number of accidents will very likely increase. Traffic is especially backed up in the mornings and in the afternoons when schools dismiss. This intersection has always been a cause for concern and this closing just adds more problems. My second concern is the decrease in access for emergency vehicles to get to campus quickly, especially access to three of the men’s dorms (it also will cause decreased access to Heritage Towers). Fire trucks and ambulances will have to maneuver through more turns and possibly more traffic to get to these buildings, causing delays in response time. Not as important, but just as concerning to me, is the fact that with this closing, everyone must enter campus through one

entrance (at the back of campus). After getting into campus, even if you are a student, you have to leave through that same entrance because you can’t maneuver on that section of University Street. I don’t think a few days’ trial will give you accurate results. To get a true reflection of the results of this being made a permanent decision: would be to keep Hamlett Street and University Street blocked off during a few “large rival” basketball games or better yet, during lectureship week and “monitor” what congestion that causes. Finally, other college campuses may close their inner streets to thru traffic, but I can’t think of one that is SO centrally located in a town. Honestly, I think this may cause even bigger problems for those crossing the street to get to FHU’s Crews-Colbert building. I have had several co-workers and friends mention to me that most students don’t pay attention as they cross Main Street. I shudder to think what may happen with the increase in traffic that will be caused by the closing of Hamlett Street. I sincerely hope that all involved in this big decision will REALLY consider if this is REALLY a wise decision! Judy McLeod Henderson

Our old house energy efficiency makeover started with windows

Dear Editor, This is a letter of appreciation to Lynn Goodwin and the employees of the Chester County State Highway District Office, and Rickey Hall and employees of the Hardin County State Highway District Office.

You have all done an exceptional job maintaining our roads for the safety and wellbeing of our community. I want to thank you all for your hard work and dedication during our inclement weather conditions. Randy A. Smith

“They don’t build ‘em this way any more,” observed carpenter James Cochran when he removed a window taller than himself from the circa-1890s farmhouse where my wife and I live. The single-paned window of wavy glass fit an 84inch opening: plenty of surface area to let in summer sunshine but for heat to escape in the winter. This explains why the house was originally constructed with a fireplace in every room. To make our venerable home more efficient, we decided on a methodical approach. After an energy audit was conducted by our local electric cooperative, we set a priority list for upgrades to modernize a structure built around the SpanishAmerican War and very much in original condition.

Exceptional job, well done

Librarian

Thanks to the generosity of our community, our first book sale of 2010 begins this week. We can offer a wide variety of both new and old hardbacks (50 cents each), paperbacks (25 cents each), videos/DVDs/audio books ($1 each) or fill up a bag of books of either kind for $3. Please remember that the library does not accept debit or credit cards, but we happily take cash or a check made out to Chester County Library. Have a great time shopping! We apologize for any inconvenience caused by our closing due to the weather. We were forced to remain closed on Monday, Feb. 1, because our parking lot was completely covered in several inches of snow and ice and was very unsafe. February will be Fine Free to accommodate anyone who is not able to get into town due to the road conditions. Our Chester County Oral History Project is off to a great start. Already, we have heard a harrowing tale of narrowly missing the 1952

First came the windows. A thermal camera scan of our home last winter produced proof in the form of bright red heat images that much of the energy being wasted came through and around the windows. Those shivery cold days of January and February, when frost traced the outside of the old windows and condensation ran down the frames to puddle on the floor, was the reason we decided to embark on replacement as the first phase with James as the installer and advisor. He specializes in old house renovations, a skill that requires patience because, as James cautions, “Every old house is different and will cause you to scratch your head.” With our project, this caveat was proven 21 separate times. James and his brother, Jessie, had to pry, saw, plane, and chisel

See you at the library!

21 windows, gingerly extract 42 sheets of glass (only one was broken in the process), and install the vinyl double-hung, double-pane replacement windows with Low E glass and Argon gas fill. Low E means the glass has a coating that reflects long-wave infrared energy for thermal efficiency. Argon gas provides a barrier to conductive and convective heat loss. We chose replacement windows that are Energy Star-rated and qualify for an energy efficiency tax credit (30 percent of purchase cost up to $1,500, labor excluded). With such large openings, I knew the units would have to be specialordered and carry a substantial price tag. Nothing prepared me for the bad news James had to convey. I nearly threw myself out of one of those second-floor windows after learning what 84-inch custom replacements cost The first lesson of an old home energy efficiency makeover is to listen to your carpenter. His idea was to reduce the opening size so an 82inch window would fit. Two inches certainly is not noticeable when the window is re-trimmed, and we preserved the esthetic of the original Victorian design. Better yet, we saved over $3,000 on the cost! Second lesson, courtesy of James, is that no window openings in a 100-year-old house are created equal. Houses settle; wood swells, shrinks and rots. Windows painted shut in the 1930s and subsequently repainted every

decade thereafter have layers of enamel armor. The third lesson is patience. You don’t hurry a home improvement project on a house that was built well enough to stand for over a hundred years. No matter that winter is just around the corner. If your carpenter doesn’t get excited about the unforeseen obstacles, there is no reason for you to succumb to panic. Getting the old windows out was a major chore and required careful measurement and frame surgery. As they prepared the openings, James and his brother encountered ancient square-headed nails, screws, pulleys, weights and rope, rusted hardware, wasp nests, spiders, mummified birds and bats and the Autumnal debris from generations of maple trees. But the first replacement window that was shimmed, set, trimmed, and caulked caused us to stand back and utter a collective “ahhhh” of pleasure. All 21 replacements have now been installed. The comfort level improvement inside the house is noticeable. Outside noise has been buffered. There’s no more condensation to mop up below the window frames. Best of all, we’ve turned down the thermostat, and know we are using less energy.

Prayer requests

Cause of trauma? Sometimes when we are in the midst of grief we wonder how we will deal with the suffering and pain we are experiencing on a daily basis. We need help making the journey with bereavement. We need to know how to handle it and how to cope. We seek to understand why this has happened to us. As anger swells within us, it is often directed at others. Occasionally, we direct it toward God. Our perception of God is not in harmony with the response we received toward our traumatic loss. Is God the cause of trauma in our world? When anguish comes, we may be disappointed in God’s response or so enraged that we do not care to understand why our sorrow has come upon us as it has. Very often attacking God is a protest of anger and deep hurt. God and the depth of our belief or disbelief will greatly influence our response to traumatic loss. Scripture says that Jehovah is no respecter of persons, and cannot be tempted with evil, neither temps he any man. Job

suffered with physical disease, loss of property, and the death of his children. God did not inflict this, but allowed Satan, up to the point of sparing his life. There is a difference from permission and commission. Jehovah gave permission. In John 9:3, a man was born blind not because of his own sin, or the sins of his parents. Suffering is not a punishment. Some things are always right, others always wrong. God is love. It is inconsistent with infinite love to commit evil, or display a respect of persons. Sometimes sorrow comes because of poor decisions on our part, other times, the decisions of others brings sorrow, and then because of no fault of anyone, as in the example of the blind man earlier given.

Chili varying the heat according to those who will be eating it. Team UPC served a variation of Paula Deen’s chili recipe, creating a crowd-pleasing “Mexican Chicken Chili.” Maegan Janes was head chef for their group. It appeared that a testament to their recipe’s popularity was the empty slow-cooker at the end of the competition. While many teams used spices and flavorful ingredients to enhance their chili recipes, others took to alternate means. Team SAA explained that their Texas-inspired chili had a special “touch” of San Antonio. This was achieved when San Antone-native co-chef Matt Olguin stuck his finger in the pot of brew. The other half of this team’s chef arsenal was Mason Bently. Word spread that the secret ingredient in team Hillbilly Cillie’s recipe was love. When asked about this, team member Thomas Ford quizzically replied, “It’s actually possum, but love will do.” Ford continued to say the recipe was a collaboration of all the team members. In spite of the fact that the recipe was sans-possum, it seemed to be pretty popular among chilitesters. Henderson City Fire Department ladled out heaping helpings of their chief’s specialty, who modestly steered away the suggestion of there being anything special about it. However, word among the rumor mill is that if he cooked it, it is bound to be good. Henderson City Police Department also entered the competition this year, offering two options to chili tasters, a traditional beef chili and a non traditional chicken chili. Mandy Rhodes said the secret to her beef recipe

was adding stew meat instead of just ground beef. Jennifer Davidson was responsible for the non-traditional chicken chili, presenting it with fresh cilantro and sliced limes to accent the flavor. Reining champ, Tennessee Children’s Home, once again brought their prize-winnng recipe. Chef David Jackson said they stuck with tried and true for this year’s competition, but added three new spice sauces with which to garnish the grub. These included Food You Jalepeno, Cherry Bomb, and a habanero sauce for the truly brave and tastebud dulled testers. Judges for the Chili Bowl Numero Tres! edition were Nicole Scott, Frank Bradford and Russell Epperson. Each had very specific ideals about what makes a good chili good.

“I like the non-traditional,” explained Scott, praising recipes which are “creative and original,” as she lifted a sample cup of chili and applying her honed judging skills. “This is a weird smell,” she commented. Bradford said a good chili should have onion and a little heat. “The heat should hang with you a little bit. And big fat kidney beans,” he added, “but they’ve gotta be done!” Bradford praised the contestants use of a variety of core ingredients. “I like the way they worked with venison, chicken, turkey…and guinea.” “And ostrich,” Epperson added. It is not clear which chili bowl they were referring to for the last two ingredients… Epperson agreed that kidney beans are a must for a winning chili recipe, adding that he prefers a

mild chili with a little bit of heat. Grease was frowned upon by all the judges. The evening’s judges touted impressive credentials qualifying them to judge the Chili Bowl. “I make that chili at least twice a week,” boasted Bradford, describing the care and precision he uses to pull the tab off of the can. “I’m qualified because I sat at the foot of my mother for years, watching her cook,” smiled Epperson. Scott added her qualifying credentials, “I make chili at least once a year!” Antacids on hand, the judges took their responsibility very seriously, conveying that it is difficult to judge between so many appetizing entries. As spoons scraped the bottoms of chili bowls, winning entries were announced. In the non-traditional category, third place went to Henderson Police Department; second place went to PKA and GTO; and Team UPC (Mexican chicken chili) took first prize. Traditional chili prizes went to Henderson Police Department for third, Tennessee Children’s Home for second, and Youth Town Scorchers for first place. The Peoples Choice award went to Tennessee Children’s Home, second; and Henderson Police Department, first place. Grand Champion and holder of the chili bowl “Cup” for the next year was Henderson Police Department.

West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation receives gift from Kirkland’s founder Alice and Carl Kirkland have donated $5 million to the West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation. The Kirkland’s gift will allow West Tennessee Healthcare to consolidate and expand its cancer services, which will be called the Alice and Carl Kirkland Cancer Center in recognition of the donation. “Alice and Carl’s generosity will help West Tennessee Healthcare serve the people of this community for generations to come,” said Bobby Arnold, West Tennessee Healthcare interim president and CEO. “We are extremely grateful for this extraordinary kindness, which lays the groundwork to increase services and provide care that is close to home for our patients.” “Alice and I are happy to be able to help West Tennessee Healthcare expand its cancer services,” said Carl Kirkland. “I am from West Tennessee and am a cancer survivor myself. We believe in the mission of bringing the highest quality cancer care closer to home for West

Tennesseans.” “We have been dreaming about expanding our cancer services,” commented Frank McMeen, president of the West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation. “Alice and Carl Kirkland are providing the stimulus to begin the construction of a new, comprehensive treatment center and establishing an endowment to help secure the future of the center.” Hospital officials are working with physicians and consultants to develop a strategic plan outlining consolidation initiatives and expanded services in light of the Kirkland donation. Each year, more than 1,100 West Tennesseans are treated for cancer at West Tennessee Healthcare. “The Alice and Carl Kirkland Cancer Center will be designed with the patient in mind, providing a supportive, easy-toaccess environment in a private, secluded setting,” said James Ross, chief operating officer for Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. “The design of the multi-story facility will create one of

the largest cancer centers in the region, while still providing patients with a sense of comfort.” “The West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation is proud to have had Carl and Alice on its board,” added Vicki Burch, chair of the Foundation board. “Of all the things that they could have done with their charitable giving, we are honored that they chose to offer a place of hope through the Foundation that will benefit West Tennesseans.” At Jackson-Madison County General Hospital, the West Tennessee Cancer Center was designated in 1990 as one of the five Centers of Excellence and it has been participating in research studies since 1993. Currently, the West Tennessee Cancer Center offers treatment and diagnostic services that include medical, surgical, and radiation oncology, tumor registry, and Hospice. In addition, it provides cancer conferences for physicians and other healthcare professionals, social services, outreach clinics, public education, and various support groups, such as C a m p Blue Bird.

Jackson General hosts birthday party for HEARTaware HEARTaware, the online heart risk assessment, turned one year old this month and that means hundreds of birthdays for the people who have taken the assessment. Sponsored by the Tennessee Heart and Vascular Center, HEARTaware provides people with an easy, free, quick way to find out their risk for heart attack or stroke. People found atrisk are offered a free cardiac screening at the Early Detection Center at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. “We are proud that in one year, around 4,500 people have taken our HEARTaware assessment,” said HEARTaware Coordinator Melissa Walls. “Of those, 600 of the at-risk people took advantage of the free cardiac screening. Many of them sought help from their doctors and made changes in their lives so that they cut their risk of heart disease and stroke.” “It is very rewarding to work with people to help improve their health and lives,” continued Walls. People like Mildred Walker helped make a video to tell others about their HEARTaware experiences. Mildred took the HEARTaware assessment and said, “I went online and took the free questionnaire and it said I was at high risk. So, I came in and met with Melissa and she gave me free blood work that showed my cholesterol was too high. She also taught me about some of the signs and symptoms of heart disease and I realized that I had all of those symptoms. I went to my doctor and a cardiologist and I ended up having to have bypass surgery. If it hadn’t been for

HEARTaware, my doctor said I could have had a heart attack.” Another testimonial from Dana Poteete, “I went online and took the free questionnaire and it said I was at high risk. So, I came in and met with one of the Cardiac Clinicians, Kandence Cloud, and she gave me free blood work that showed my cholesterol was too high and I found out my blood pressure was extremely high. I went to my doctor and now I’m on medications and I have changed my diet and am now exercising. I have lost weight and feel much better.” The Tennessee Heart and Vascular Center at General Hospital began offering HEARTaware as a way to catch heart disease before it causes a devastating heart attack or stroke. “We felt compelled to try to reach people

before they suffered a potentially life-threatening health problem,” said Center Director Steve Albright. “Often the first sign of a heart problem is a serious heart attack or even death. So, if we can provide education and help prevent that from happening, it is a really good thing for the community.” HEARTaware has been successful. It is a product of Byrne Healthcare, which reports that the Tennessee Heart and Vascular Center’s HEARTaware has been in the top five in the U.S. for number of hits, people completing the survey, and people registering for the free screening.

Lions move into first place tie

Moulton named TS Player of the Week

The Freed-Hardeman Lions fought through a cold shooting night to post a 71-59 win over Bethel University on Monday night in the FHU Sports Center, and in the process pulled into a tie for first place in the TranSouth Conference. Earlier in the day, Freed-Hardeman made it back into the NAIA top 25, coming in at No. 23 in the sixth poll of the season. The Lions reached No. 16 earlier in the year before dropped out of the top 25. The Lions (14-7, 7-1) never trailed in the game but never could quite pull away despite having several double-digit leads. They led by 13 at halftime and extended it to as many as 16 points in the

final seconds. There were 17 ties and 12 lead changes, with Bethel having a chance to create a 13th lead change and make it one that secured a win. Down two and playing for the final shot, Bethel’s Teena Carter was fouled with seven seconds left. After making the first free throw, Carter missed the second but Jovana Petrovic managed to knock the rebound off of FHU’s Maria Bagwell underneath the basket to allow the Lady Wildcats to maintain possession. However, Carter missed from outside the lane with two seconds remaining and Nina Djokovic’s putback fell short - and with it Bethel’s hopes for an upset. Djokovic’s layup with just inside two minutes to play gave Bethel a 66-62

lead and set the stage for one of the biggest shots in the young career of sophomore Hannah Parsley. Parsley, who scored 15 points in the game, drilled a three-pointer from off the right wing to bring FHU within a point. Parsley then rebounded a Djokovic miss on the other end, and 25 seconds later Maria Bagwell hit two free throws to give FHU a one point lead. After Meribeth Boehler came away with a steal on Bethel’s next possession, Whitney Johnson was fouled with two seconds left on the shot clock and 17 seconds on the game clock. Johnson hit one of the two free throws, making it a 68-66 game and giving Bethel the last possession that left them one point short of sending the game

to overtime. The Lady Lions led by eight points early (16-8) but Bethel scored on seven straight possessions and went on a 16-5 run to take a 24-21 lead at the 8:09 mark in the first half. From there, neither team would lead by more than two points until the Lady Wildcats used an 8-2 run to build a six point lead - their largest of the game - at 49-43 with 13:51 to play. FHU’s Jana Cross, however, scored the next six points to tie the game again, and Bethel’s fourpoint lead with 1:59 left would be the largest either team would have the rest of the night.

second half but the Wildcats (10-12, 2-6) refused to let the Lions put the game out of reach, always going on a short burst to keep the game around a 10-point margin for much of the second half. Zack Frey and Kyle Teichmann each had 16 points for FHU, followed by Ken Bingham with 15. Logan Greer added 13 points and eight rebounds. FHU, which had made an average of 10.8 3-pointers per game in its last five games, connected on only one of six from behind the arc. For the game the Lions shot 42.0 percent from the field, their worst shooting performance since their loss to Union on Jan. 16. However, FreedHardeman’s defense helped make up for any offensive struggles as the Lions held their opponent to 59 points for the second straight game.

Junior Lexington, Tyler Seagraves notched 14 points, and Tranard Cobb 11. CCJHS turned a onepoint half-time deficit in to an eight-point lead with a 14-6 third period scoring burst. Each team caught fire in the fourth quarter with 19 points each. In the final contest Thursday, Cobb had 14 points and Brandon Hughes 8. But Decatur pulled away in the second half to win 54-39. The Junior Eagles held an 11-5 lead early on, but saw it evaporate when Decatur out-scored CCJHS 17-6 in the second period. In the girls’ tournament, Chester County was defeated in a hardfought semi-final by Lexington Middle, but rebounding with a consolation victory over Hardin County. No other information was available on these games. Morgan Jones of the Junior Eaglettes, along Cobb were each named to the all-tournament team.

of a 16-7 burst that gave FHU (16-4, 4-3) its largest lead of the game at 58-45. But Lyon, which was coming off a road upset of then-No. 19 Bethel University in its previous conference game, started to make things interesting. The Pipers went on an 11-1 run to pull within three points (59-56) with 5:19 remaining, taking advantage of four turnovers and two missed free throws by the Lady Lions. However, after the two teams traded free throws, FHU forced turnovers on five straight possessions and extended its lead to nine points with just inside a minute to play. Lyon would get no closer than seven points afterward as the Lady Lions hit six of eight free throws down the stretch to secure the win. Cross finished the game with 20 points, giving her 2,010 for her

made the biggest impact. Boehler led all scorers with 22 points to go along with seven rebounds, two blocks and two steals, including the one that stopped the Lady Wildcats inside a minute to play. Cross and Boehler combined to go 14-for-24 from the field. Johnson added 12 points, nine in the first half.

Cross passes 2K point total Cross became the fourth player in program history to score 2,000 points and the No. 15 Freed-Hardeman Lady Lions held off a late comeback attempt by Lyon College in a 73-66 win on Thursday night in Batesville, Ark. Cross, who needed 10 points entering the game to hit the mark, got there with 11:29 to play as part

Lions points per contest and moved into sole possession of second place in the TranSouth Conference following Trevecca Nazarene’s loss to Union the same night. FHU took control of the game midway through the first half, going on a 16-4 run to take their largest lead of the half at 31-17 with 6:49 on the clock. The Scots soon pulled within five points on a pair of Brandon Cowart three-pointers sandwiched around a Chad Glover layup, but Anthony Sampson stopped the rally with a three-pointer of his own to help the Lions take a 42-31 lead into halftime. The two teams traded baskets early in the second half until a 16-6 Lion run capped by one of Jesse Moulton’s six threepointers gave FreedHardeman a 65-42 lead with 11:05 left. It was a deficit from which the Scots would not recover, as FHU led by as many as 31 points in picking up the victory. The night belonged the Moulton, who led all scorers with a season-high 26 points on six of nine shooting from behind the arc. He also grabbed a game-high eight rebounds. Bingham was

the only other Lion in double figures with 12 points, 10 of which came in the first half. Frey, FHU’s leading scorer, was saddled with foul trouble and managed seven points in 16 minutes. The Lions shot 16-of30 from the field and 4-of11 from 3-point range in both halves for 53.3 percent and 36.4 percent respectively, and also hit 13-of-14 from the free throw line.

Inside CCHS By Stephany Doss School Reporter

The deadline for banquet fees is March 12. A list of students who still owe money can be found outside the cafeteria. If any student has questions, he or she may ask Mrs. Kerr. The Banquet will be held April 24 at Lambuth. Students may still donate their new or lightly used closed toe shoes and boots until Feb. 11. The shoes will be going to those affected by the earthquake in Haiti. A reminder to seniors: Fees for senior material from Jostens are due March 1.

By Rosemary McKnight Congratulations to Stacey Pruett for being selected East Chester’s Teacher of the Year. Stacey has been teaching third grade at East Chester for eight years. In addition to her job in the classroom, she oversees the school’s “No Teacher Left Behind” health and wellness program and also works as the CCHS assistant soccer coach. Her classroom is often used for observations because of her expertise in Response to Intervention and learning stations. Stacey was selected Teacher of the Year by her peers. The students, faculty, and staff at East Chester are sending very special get-well wishes to Colton Gates. Colton is a student in Brandi Welch’s kindergarten class. He is currently a patient at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. We hope Colton feels better soon. Get-well wishes also go to Tammy Jones, one of our cooks, who was in the hospital last week. Faculty and staff helped Kim Murphy get ready for her baby by hosting a baby shower last Tuesday. Classes at East Chester have been collecting pennies for Haiti. They heard about Cora Sharp’s goal to collect one million pennies for Haiti and decided to help. Students have collected over 50,000 pennies and other coins! That is over $500. Several classes turned this project into lessons. Beverly Rogers’ class counted pennies on the 100th day of school. They placed 100 pennies into ziploc bags. This first-grade class had $43 in pennies and has collected more since then. Third grade classes weighed their coins. Did you know a gallon of pennies weighs over 30 pounds and a large sand bucket of pennies weighs over 40 pounds? Money from this project is being used to assist the Son Light Orphanage in Haiti. Since the earthquake, this orphanage has fed about

STEPHANY DOSS The Academic Decathlon team would like to extend thanks to Mr. Ricky Mitchell for all his help in preparing for competition! 200 people per day. People from Henderson have been going to assist with rebuilding walls at the orphanage and its guest house, as well as helping distribute food and provide medical treatment. Recently third-grade classes read a story about Gertrude Ederle, a champion swimmer. She was the first woman to swim the English Channel. They also read about other “female firsts.” Students in Kim Murphy and Stacey Pruett’s class got a real treat when Officer Kacey Clayton made a visit to talk about her experience being the first female police officer to join the Henderson Police Department. She talked about her feelings joining the force, her job description, and some of her memorable experiences while on duty. Students have been enjoying special activities in the gym that use scooters. They have been sitting on the scooters and racing around the gym in their very own “Indy 500.” Rosemary McKnight’s third-graders got a special package in the mail last week. It had 20 new books for their classroom library. These books were donated by the Sunny D Book Spree. Students collected 20 Sunny D labels last fall and mailed them in and got free books in return. February is a busy month at East Chester. This week is the presale of yearbooks. This is the only chance for students to preorder their yearbook. Thursday, Feb. 4, a new fundraiser is being held in the library. It is called Animal Land and is similar to Build-a-Bear. This is a one-day opportunity for students to make their own stuffed animal. Feb. 8–10 will be the week to turn in names and addresses for Computers for Education. East Chester earns money for each address turned in, so parents are encouraged to complete the address forms and return them to their child’s teacher. School will be dismissed on Feb. 15 for Presidents’ Day. Feb. 16 will be the annual Relay for Life Baked Potato/Salad Bar Dinner. All proceeds from this meal go to Chester County’s Relay for Life. Following the meal, there will be a PTO program. This will be a patriotic program with songs and presentations about famous Americans. It is easy to see that Everyone Always Soars Together at EAST!

UT Knoxville proposes differential tuition for students in three of its colleges Three colleges at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, would charge extra tuition per credit hour, under a plan being proposed by Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek. The plan was outlined at the UT Board of Trustees’ Trusteeship Committee and Executive

By Emily Brown Chester County students and faculty enjoyed some time off for snow days. If the pictures and status updates on Facebook are any indication, the unplanned vacation days were well celebrated. There were tales of sleeping late, staying up late, sledding, four-wheel-

and Compensation Committee meeting on Jan. 20. If approved by the Board of Trustees in February, the differential tuition program would go into effect at the beginning of the fall semester 2010. Under the plan, juniors and seniors in the Colleges of Nursing,

undergraduates taking business courses and all students taking engineering courses would pay differential tuition – that is, a supplemental per-credithour charge in addition to university tuition. These differential tuition charges would increase in the future at the same per-

ing, and yummy foods and hot chocolate. Many memories were being made that our kids will long remember. Second-graders have begun the study of states of matter. In Sherry Thompson’s second grade, Mitch Irwin, our new student teacher taught a fine lesson on this subject and then had a day of activities exploring this further. He set up five stations that the students moved through in groups and answered questions and experimented with matter. Mitch is a Henderson native and actually went to West Chester when he was in elementary school. He is now teaching with

the teachers who taught him, Jean Smith, Jo Price and Amy Eaton. There will be a meeting of the PTO at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4, in the cafeteria. The spring fundraiser will be discussed. A tour down the thirdgrade hallway will give you a treat as the students have proudly displayed their essays on “When I’m 100 years old …” They have also made wrinkly old self-portraits of themselves as the elderly out of wrinkled construction paper. The essays were written in conjunction with the 100th day of school. WEST – Where Everyone Stands Tall!

centage rate as university tuition increases. The extra funds are needed because those three colleges are facing extraordinary growth and need additional staffing and state-of-the-art technology to keep pace with the demand. “UT graduates in business, engineering and nursing are among the most employable college graduates in the state; these areas are where there are jobs – well-paying jobs,” Cheek said. “Consequently, student demand for these areas of study is outpacing our ability to accommodate students. Without this differential tuition, we will have to limit enrollment in these areas. “Officials in all three colleges have spoken with groups of their students and have gotten tremendous support for these plans,” he said. “UT Knoxville students realize they are getting a topnotch education at an affordable price. Students tell us they want to main-

tain, and grow, the caliber of their education because they know a UT Knoxville degree is a tremendous asset to their future.” Cheek said many of UT’s peer institutions already charge differential tuition in these areas. Here is a detailed look at each college’s differential tuition proposal:

College of Nursing The college would charge juniors and seniors an extra $90 per credit hour. Juniors in nursing take 30 credits per year and seniors take 31 credits per year. At those levels, juniors and seniors would pay an extra $2,700 and $2,790 per year, respectively. That amounts to an extra $5,490 for the two years. UT nursing students now pay undergraduate tuition and fees of $6,850 per year. The differential tuition would push that amount to $9,550 for juniors and $9,640 for seniors.

College of Business Administration The college would charge all undergraduates taking business courses an extra $50 per credit hour. For students taking a typical full load, the differ-

ential tuition will equate to an additional $700 in the sophomore year and $1,200 in each of the junior and senior years. It will result in about $3,100 in differential tuition for a business major over the three years in which a student takes business courses. For a business minor, the total amount will be about $1,200 over the three years the student takes business courses.

College of Engineering For eight years, the College of Engineering has charged differential tuition of $25 per credit hour on the first eight hours of coursework. The college’s new proposal would increase that by $20 — to $45 per credit hour for all engineering courses taken by undergraduate and graduate students. The differential tuition will mean about $680 per year, or about $2,700 for a student completing a fouryear degree. The College of Engineering has about 3,000 students, or about 11 percent of UT Knoxville’s enrollment. The college’s current projected enrollment growth is 25 to 30 percent over the next five years.
