Four ATV’s stolen in Chester Co. Sheriff’s Dept. recovers five ATV’s, two suspects arrested Theft of all-ter rain vehicles, commonly called fourwheelers, are on the rise in Chester HENLEY and surrounding counties as Chester County investigators recovered five stolen ATVs in the past few weeks, three from Chester County, and one from Madison County and one traced back to Hardeman County. Four ATVs total have been have been reported stolen in Chester County, with one still missing. Local Authorities arrested Jeremy Ray Henley, of Henderson, and one juvenile last week for the theft of two of the four-wheelers after the owner of the ATVs came home

It seems like everyone these days can put a face on cancer: moms, dads, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, grandparents... The Chester County Relay For Life chapter has named three local faces as their 2010 Honorary Chairpersons, Glenda Wilson, Eric Talbott and Jim Brooks. Glenda Wilson is reminded every six months about her bout with cancer as she receives her routine checkups, exams and ultrasounds, but the optimistic person that she is said her ordeal with the disease could have been a lot worse. “I was never sick through chemo and radiation,” said Wilson. “I saw what Randall Jones and my husband went through…I didn’t have it that bad.” In 2001, Wilson found lumps on her breast and went through a bilateral procedure to have them removed, in what she thought was successfully, but as

and discovered the theft in progress. According to a report, the owner stated as he pulled into his driveway in the southern part of the county on the afternoon of March 30, he noticed a teal green car enter his driveway with no one getting out of the vehicle. He then noticed his green 250 Honda Recon come out from behind his house and head west on Milam Road with the teal green car traveling behind it. The owner called authorities and also reported his other four-wheeler, See ATVs, Page 3-A

she feared, the doctors had missed one, and it turned out to be cancer. “It was detected a 3.5 out of 4 in 2005,” Glenda explained. She admitted when she first found out she cried a time or two, “It was not that long since I lost my husband to colon cancer.” But today, she says there’s no time for crying, as the focus of her days revolve around charity work. “I get up every day and try to help somebody,” she said.

And help she does, through charitable causes like March of Dimes, Hospice of West TN, sponsors a child from St. Jude, and most recently joined Head Huggers. “When someone tells you, you have cancer, it upsets you and throws you for a loop, but you have to live everyday to the fullest,” Wilson added. Wilson has one daughter accompanied with five grandchildren, she is also an active member at Old Friendship Baptist Church where she

teaches Sunday School; and is also in remission. Twelve-year-old Eric Talbott was only 8 years old when he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia or commonly known as ALL. The Chester County Middle School student recalled it was the summer of 2006 when he started feeling bad with leg aches, chills, fever, that led him to make a doctor’s appointment in which he was told he had cancer. He stayed at See Honorary, Page 2-A

Thursday, Thomas was selected by the Los Angeles Sparks in the first round of the WNBA Draft Thursday afternoon from the NBA Entertainment Studios. “It has always been a dream of mine to play in the WNBA and its hard to put into words the excitement I am feeling right now,” Thomas said. “I am so blessed and thankful for the opportunity to fulfill a lifelong goal.” An All-SEC first team selection, Thomas finished the season first in the SEC in scoring

Honorary St. Jude for nearly a year during his treatment. “Everybody was friendly and nice,” Eric stated. “They helped me out a lot.” Eric is the son of Bryan and Andrea Talbott and brother to three younger siblings. Eric is your allAmerican boy who says he spends most of his time outdoors with animals, hunting, fishing and kickball and baseball, and quickly added, “I don’t really get bored that often,” he smiled. He said he is now in remission and is excited to be an honorary chairperson for Relay. Sixty-eight year old Jim Brooks said he attended the Relay events every year, but never in a million years thought he would be a participant. Brooks said he was suffering a sinus infection and went to the doctor and

was later diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March of last year. Through surgery of cleansing his pancreas he was cancer free, but not for long. Six weeks later cancer had spread to his liver. “At this point I’m in remission for everything,” he said with a thankful smile. “This has been a tough ordeal, but we’ve had more support than you can believe, I never knew I had so many friends.” With one of his biggest supporters sitting right by his side, his wife, Millie. “We’ve had people praying for him from all over the United States and even as far as China,” Millie exclaimed. “That’s how he survived all of this, is through prayer.” Brooks is an active member at Sanford Hill Baptist Church and said it is such an honor to be one of the Relay Honorary Chairs. “I’d just like to thank everyone for their sup-

port,” he humbly remarked. Relay for Life is slated for May 21 at Chester County High School. Twenty-six teams will be participating this year, and the Chester County Relay chapter has set a fundraising goal of $60,000. According to Relay chair, Teresa King, they have already accumulated $12,500 through fundraising efforts, “that’s far ahead of where we were this time last year,” said King. King noted a few changes with 2010 Relay including moving the survivor dinner, which usually takes place on Relay night, to May 11 at the First United Methodist Church. “Relay night is so hectic,” said King, “a lot of our survivors really want to participate in everything so this gives them more time to do that.” Luminary forms can be picked up from any relay committee member or city hall. Each luminary is $10.

City schedules budget meeting The Board of Mayor and Council for the City of Henderson has scheduled a budget meeting for 6 p.m. April 20. At its regular session Thursday, the council recessed and will reconvene prior to the budget meeting and take up the issue of changing the bonding coverage for the city recorder and other city employees. Thursday the council zipped through a light agenda. City Recorder Jim Garland stated at the meeting that he had been bonded through the Tennessee Municipal League in the amount of $200,000, but the TML had been advised they did not have the authority to continue to do so. Garland suggested that the city

consider purchasing his bond through the same procedure that other employees are bonded, and at the same time increasing those crime bonds from $100,000 to $200,000 at considerable savings to the city. However, this would require a change in the city’s municipal code and must be completed this month. Wording of the change was not completed by the time of Thursday’s meeting, necessitating the recess until April 20. Other items covered at Thursday’s meeting included approval of $5,000 funding for the Southwest Tennessee Educational Pathways (STEP) Program through Southwest Tennessee Development District.

These ATVs were reported stolen recently and recovered by the Chester County Sheriff’s Dept. Two suspects were arrested, including a juvenile. Henley, among the arrested, was released on $10,000 bond. The juvenile was released in his parents’ custody. If you have any information pertaining to the other thefts please contact Crimestoppers 989-2787.

The Chester County Commission had previously approved $10,000 for the STEP Program which guarantees at least two years of college education to any graduating high school senior through a mentoring program to assist the student in applying for grants and scholarships. The council also voted to purchase a new computer network switch at a cost of $5,986.34, with the cost split between several departments. Before recessing, Mayor Bobby King suggested that city consider auctioning off any unused equipment from the various departments. The idea was well received by council members, with no definite time table.

ATVs a tan 400 Honda was missing, also. Investigators received information that Henley had been involved with the theft of four-wheelers in the surrounding counties. A teal green car found at Henley’s residence matched the description of the car on Milam Road on March 30. Upon questioning, Henley admitted his involvement with stealing the four-wheelers and claimed it was the juvenile that asked him to drop him (the juvenile) off at this residence where he had been watching the house for several days and said no one would be home. However, according to the arrest report, the juvenile stated he was asked by Henley to assist him in obtaining two four-wheelers from his “uncle’s” house and that Henley said his uncle said he could borrow them. The juvenile said he sold the green Honda Recon to a man who lived on McAdams Loop for $200 and the juvenile also revealed Henley had been trail riding on the other stolen tan Honda. Both Henley and the juvenile admitted that after they stole the four-wheelers on Milam Road they met at a residence on McAdams

schools all-time list. “Bianca Thomas is an athletic guard and is one of the top scorers in the SEC and has the ability to shoot from three-point range,” Carolyn Peck said. Thomas turned in 19 games this season of at least 20 points, which included a career-high and Tad Smith Coliseum record 42 points earlier this year against LSU. The Henderson native was also one of the long distance shooters in the nation and ended the year

second in the SEC and ninth in the nation with 3.1 three-pointers per game. In fact, Thomas set the school record for the most three-pointers in a season with 100 and became just the seventh player in SEC history with 100 treys in a single season. Thomas hit a schoolrecord seven three-pointers twice during the season and finished her career at Ole Miss second on the all-time list with 226 career treys.

Loop, the same place that the tan Honda had been recovered by investigators in a wooded area nearby. Authorities located the Honda Recon at C & R storage. Someone had purchased it for $1,000 from the individual who lived on McAdams Loop. A relative of Henley’s stated they had recently purchased a four-wheeler from him for $150. The ATV was located and it was determined that it was stolen from Madison County. The juvenile denied any involvement in this incidence. “I feel like there’s more people involved in these thefts than what we have arrested,” said Chester County Investigator Jason Crouse. Another ATV was reported missing on March 31 on U.S. 45 South. Authorities located the Green Honda Rancher 350, valued at $6,000 on Garland Bottom

Road in its same condition. On the evening of March 27 a 2000 Honda Rancher 350 was reported missing on Silerton Road. It has yet to be recovered. The owner stated it was green in color, had a bent gas gauge and it had a two-inch ball on the hitch, a CocaCola box strapped on the front rack, and a gun rack. If you have any information pertaining to the theft or recovery of the fourwheelers that have been stolen, where other fourwheelers may be located or who may be involved with the theft(s), a reward is being offered through crime stoppers. Contact 989-2787.

I have an apology to Judy and Bill Loftis. They celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary on April

3 with their grandchild in Knoxville. I didn’t have it in time to put in the paper at that time. I know it was great. Continue to remember our sick this week: Jean Murley, Winna Knipper, Larry Privett, Teresa Colbert, Nancy Turner, Dennis Bain, Sherry Roark and Linda Holder. I ran across an article and thought this might be helpful in these hard times we are going through. If you’re drowning in your finances, try taking the one-month challenge! At the start of a month, begin a spreadsheet that includes every single expense you have in a month. I’d recommend going so far as itemizing receipts, listing each item that you buy and what it cost. At the end of the month, mark each item as essential or non-essential and total each, then compare those amounts to what you brought in for the month. If the nonessential amount is anywhere close to the essential amount, you have a lot of fat that you can cut from your spending diet! Our quote of the week: Ideas are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands. But like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them you will reach your destiny. – Charles Schurz. Have a great week and don’t forget to call me at 983-0522 about church news, birthdays, anniversaries, deaths, sickness, upcoming events and reports on past events; anything of interest to our community.

and placed lilacs in the kitchen window in a green vase above the sink. Their perfume was released throughout the kitchen and dining room. It made dishwashing a pleasant task after supper. I’m gathering lilacs for Mother’s 79th birthday in heaven on Friday. Kathy Tignor Belew will receive lilacs at the Tignor reunion on Sunday, at the Senior Citizen Building for her April 21 birthday. The family is hoping Beulah Tignor Holmes will attend, since she will be the most mature lady present while celebrating her birthday, too. Bring your camera so Beulah will say cheese for you. Brianna Bailey turned 11 Saturday wishing for Fran Bailey’s chicken and dumplings followed by chocolate cake. Mike Nikola turned another year wiser, too. Melbern Jones just turned on his birthday and was thankful he could. New names are listed

for your remembrance in prayer. Our friends are Max Tucker, Huggins family, and Carmen Creasy (Fran Bailey’s uncle). Continue to keep warm thoughts of Andrea Holland, Babe Ruth, Judy Azevedo, Lloyd Richardson, Nina Ross, Cynthia Pusser, and those that are improving with health issues. Saturday night we ate supper in Huntingdon with Kathy and Ricky Belew. They were complimenting the contribution Dixie Carter had done for her community. We noticed banners around the Dixie Carter theater building, but didn’t know Dixie had died until we heard the news. She gave recognition to her hometown just like Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Buford Pusser, Eddie Arnold, and Tina Turner did for their small hometowns. They were all good country folks. As that saying goes, “You can take the

country boy or girl out of the city, but you can’t take the country out of the boy or girl.” Four more friends in our communities have not died - they have gone to a better world. Lawrence “Larry” Moffitt (1-2736/4-5-10), sometimes the little boy in Larry needed his friends to show support - it was done lovingly with a final tribute of words; Virginia Douglas Richerson (11-29-33/4-1110); Jacob Smith (2-2653/4-10-10); and Ray Cherry (6-20-20/4-12-10), another soldier from the greatest generation. On April 9, 2009, Ray was sharing war stories with me. He said he’d never forget the beautiful reflecting pool of the Taj Mahal mausoleum in India. I honor Ray and those names above with the inscription at the gate’s entrance, “O Soul, thou art at rest, Return to the Lord at peace with Him, and He at peace with you.”

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather like I am, but I hope you have more sense than I do. I got carried away with spring cleaning Friday and overdid it. I will have to learn that I am not as young as I used to be. We want to send our condolences to Linda Scott’s family. Linda passed away April 2. She was a sweet lady and will be missed by everyone that knew her. Our prayers are with you Trent and Suzanne, and to her sisters. Our heartfelt sympathy goes to Sherry Hunt’s family. Her mother Jean Holder was from Deanburg and was my neighbor when we grew up. Her grandmother is Opal King and her grandfather is the late Clyde King. They always lived on Pleasant Springs Road.

He lived in our community. As I was walking last Thursday, he drove by and stopped to ask if I needed a ride. I asked how he was doing and he said fine. A few years ago, he did some work for us and I asked him how he got the name “Snapper.” He said he weighed 1½ pounds when he was born and after a few days, the doctor said, “I believe the little whipper snapper is going to make it.” Therefore, the name stuck. He was a kind man and will be missed. As always, pray for the sick and our military. Peggy Patterson reminds everyone that the

Smith reunion will be Saturday, April 17, at the center. Geney and Jo Ann Clayton hosted a garden party on Monday evening. Their son, Mike, was in charge and the whole clan showed up. The garden was planted in no time. Afterward, Jo Ann served food. Those celebrating a birthday are Matt Cooper on April 19 and Sam Kesler on April 21. Happy anniversary to David and Virginia Morrison on April 21. Last weekend, we attended the annual Mule Days in Columbia, known as “The Mule Capital of the World.” Mule Days started around 1840 when huge crowds attended the livestock show and mule day market, which was one of the largest livestock markets in the world. Today, in addition to mules, there is plenty of good food, music, crafts and, of course, the big parade on Saturday. The festival now attracts over 200,000 people and takes place over four days. As we entered the grandstand to watch the mule-pulling contest, there sat our neighbors right in front of us, Dennis and Erma Dean, Guy Ray and Debbie, and Paul and Lorie. The day ended with a wonderful dinner at Legends and we headed home. Have a good week.

state government is studied.” “Watch Out For Hobos” “The ‘hoboes’ are coming to Henderson on Saturday morning, April 15.

Dear Editor, I read with much interest your article in the April 1 edition of the Chester County Independent. I do agree there is a wonderful mystique about that particular Eaglette team. I was a mere sixth grader, but it was the talk of the town then, even in Silerton where I was born and raised. To see the picture of the team brought back memories of fonder days. I immediately thought of the 100-Year Centennial celebration that year. The night I attended there was a square dance on the corner of the courthouse near Dr. McCallum’s and Dr. Wilson’s office. There were also wooden nickels, and costume contests to mention just a couple of things. Be that as it may, I must take exception to the quote of “The greatest team ever to put on the blue and white of Chester County High School.” Let’s qualify that with the phrase… up until then! I would think the 1962-63 team would be qualified as great, also. They were 26-3 that year in a tough District 29. Losses were to Jackson North Side and Lexington twice. Although runners up in both the District and Region 8 tournaments, they did trip a tough Milan team 31-30 to gain a spot in Murfreesboro. Region 1 Champion Sevier County was dispatched 46-31 and then came the loss to Shelbyville Central 39-32. That girls’ team finished 31-6 with four losses at the hands of a Jerry Graves’ coached Lexington sextet. How ‘bout the 1977-78 team? They were ranked No. 1 in the state most of the season and beat Livingston Academy handily for the Golden Ball. That team split I think with Bolivar Central, the defending State AA Champion, who had moved up to AAA. My two alma maters won championships that evening. Bolivar defeated Lebanon handily, also. I attended the Bolivar-CC game in Henderson that year. I sat next to Ms. Mary E. Bishop, my freshman English teacher, and later basketball buddy. She told me then, “Leo, this is the best team we’ve ever had.” I immediately asked about the 1960 and 1963 teams. She said, “Better!” The 2005 State Championship team was without fanfare the entire year mostly, but even Coach Lee Pipkin stated she thought they’d win the State that year. The heartbreaking loss to Loretto in the Sub-State (Sectional?) the year before tempered the next year’s team with grit and determination. Sure the 1960 team was memorable, but they were “first in heart and second in the state.” A friend, who was a freshman at the time, said that sign was placed on the high school walls to welcome the team home. The 51-41 loss to Milan was caused mainly by Milan’s sharp shooting junior forward Shelby Hicks. She almost single handily outscored Chester County burning the nets for 30 points. Almost everyone knows how she died tragically in an automobile accident before the beginning of the next season. There are always teams that inspire wonder, and bring back memories of youthful and less stressful times. That team was such an entity. Long may they wave in blue and white. Thanks for the memories. Leo L. Lambert P.S. – Wasn’t it Jan Bray (Judy was a guard) who scored the winning basket against Loretto? Editor’s Note: We thank Mr. Lambert for noting the accomplishments of other great Chester County High School basketball teams. However, the quote “The greatest team ever to put on the blue and white of Chester County High School” was simply a quote from the Chester County Independent in 1960. We currently make no such claim for or against any team(s) before or since.

Dear Editor, Monday night, March 29, 2010, at the Republican Party meeting, I was very disappointed. I will never again attend a local Republican Party meeting. I will never again be proud to admit I’m a Republican. I’m going to work very hard with the Tea Partiers of Chester County to throw the bums out. Merle P. Little Henderson

Growing giant pumpkins more than just luck

Part sport, part hobby and all hard work, growing giant pumpkins several years ago evolved into the World Series of gardening. Across Appalachia, festivals celebrate gargantuan gourds with ribbons and cash awards, but the real stories behind 1,000-lb. and larger entries are often shrouded in misconception. Just ask Bill Neptune, linemen crew leader at GuernseyMuskingum Electric Cooperative in New Concord, Ohio. He says there’s no magic to producing automobile-sized pumpkins, only many hours of labor and equal measures of worry and good luck. Yes, a green thumb helps, but among the fraternity and sisterhood of giant pumpkin growers, advice is freely given and help is a phone call away. Neptune’s 1,503-lb. 2009 entry was largest in the history of the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival, and he placed fifth (1,466 pounds) at the Canfield show last year where a new world record was weighed: Christy Harp’s 1,725-lb. monster. Contrary to myth, giant pumpkin propagation is not the bailiwick of mad scientists or garden cultists. Seed, soil, water, nutrients and plenty of sunshine, warm summer temperatures and TLC are needed to grow a behemoth. Pat Sinclair, a neighborhood pumpkin grower, helped Neptune get started. “I drove by his house

one day, and there were these giant pumpkins in the yard!” he recalls. Neptune, a farmer and gardener himself, found the 400- to 500-lb. orange fruits to be fascinating. He stopped to talk with Sinclair, who gave him several seeds to take home and plant. Neptune raised a pumpkin of over 100 pounds and was hooked. Fifteen years later, he is a member of the Ohio Valley Giant Pumpkin Growers and competing for top prizes, in addition to returning the favor and advising newcomers in the quest for the biggest pumpkin in the land. He has plenty of advice for novice pumpkin growers. First, says Neptune, prepare for a season of effort, sweat and stress. “If my wife, Teresa, and two youngest sons, Troy and Tim, weren’t supportive, I couldn’t do this,” he concedes, describing the long evenings spent tending plants after a day on the job. From training vines to hand-pollinating the flowers, the workload steadily increases as the pumpkins thrive. Neptune builds miniature greenhouses around tender young plants to get them acclimated outside. “Ideal” growth conditions are 80- to 85degree daytime temperatures without too much rain or wind. Diseases and insects are major threats. Daconil fungicide and a garden pesticide such as liquid Sevenä (carbaryl) are part of every grower’s protec-

tive arsenal. Other treatments might be needed. Fertilizers, plant nutrients and soil amendments can become esoteric subjects among growers. But to produce a giant, Neptune encourages the study of what pumpkin plants need to help pack girth and weight on fruit. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and seek the advice of experienced growers, says Neptune. That’s how he got started. Attend pumpkin festivals and shows; consider joining a club; sign up for gardening seminars; consult Extension literature; and read on-line and in books. A wealth of information is available on the Internet, including on-line stores; chat rooms and bulletin boards; sites dedicated to the hobby, such as www.bigpumpkins.com and www.ovgpg.com (Ohio Valley Giant Pumpkin Growers); and university electronic publications, such as this fact sheet found at http://ohioline.osu.edu/hygfact/1000/1646.html. Every champion pumpkin grower does things a little differently, but most agree that for vines to thrive and produce weighty fruit, extra attention must be given to feeding. Neptune’s recipe for ‘compost tea’ is an example of a nutrient mix that will help any type of garden plant, from watermelons to tomatoes. Various recipes are available on-line (Google search “compost tea”). Neptune likes to use 55gallon containers for greater volume, but the tea can be made in 5-gal-

lon plastic buckets, too. Compost tea kits are even available from garden supply stores. The key ingredients might vary but usually include worm castings, kelp meal, alfalfa meal, molasses and garden dirt. Mixed in water and aerated with an aquarium pump and bubbler system, the tea brews to provide a home for beneficial microbes. These good “bugs” when applied to soil or leaves can reduce diseases and increase available nutrients. “Once a week, I apply the tea to my plants, running it through the drip system or as a foliar spray,” Neptune explains. Finally, here are a few tips for giant pumpkin cultivation: Start seeds inside and set out in early May; plant in well-drained soil in a 30- x 30-ft. area, protecting tender young plants from nighttime cold until June. Use drip irrigation or soaker hoses, never overhead sprays. Manage the vines and encourage the root system. For example, mycorrhizal inoculants will attach to hair roots and help break down nutrients. Check daily for disease and pests, including mice. As the pumpkin grows, it can add 35-40 pounds per day. If the vine and main stem are not elevated to ease pressure from the growing fruit, damage is likely. Beware heavy rains, which can cause pumpkins to grow too fast; high winds, which can damage vines; and hail storms.

Learning to walk Sometimes we allow strong emotions to hold us back from progressing forward in our journey with sorrow. Along the way if we allow, we have the opportunity to learn and grow as an individual. I came across some practical lessons written by Hardeman Nichols originally printed in a Breman, Ga. Bulletin that is worthy of reprint. Express your emotions. Since Jesus wept (John 11:35), it should not be considered a Christian virtue to be unmoved by the loss of a loved one. There is a difference between expressing one’s emotion and losing one’s self-control. The Bible does not say, “Sorrow not,” but it says, “Sorrow not, as others which have no hope” (1 Thessalonians 4:13). Seek the aid of your friends. When Paul neared Rome, the brethren came to meet him and he “thanked God, and took courage” (Acts 28:15). Compel yourself to be with people. Your inclination may be to retreat into the refuge of privacy, but there is a greater need than one realizes to associate with others. David did (2 Samuel 12:19-23). Avail yourself of spiritual resources. Even though you have not realized the importance of the Scriptures and their comfort, they can help in building your faith (Romans 15:4). The power of prayer and the peace of God are very precious possessions (Philippians 4:6-7). Do not brood over what might have been. Both Mary and Martha said, “If you had been here, my brother would not have died” (John 11:21, 32). Loss can be an unfair reality of life. Actively pursue worthwhile tasks. Once the initial shock has been dealt with, get busy at other things (Philippians 3:13). Make careful, thoughtful decisions (Proverbs 14:15). Increase your trust in God (Romans 8:28). As always, if you need to talk we are an available support. Suns is sponsored by Shackelford Corporation, www.shackelfordfuneraldirectors.com

The American Heart Association (AHA) aims to get people walking for 30 minutes a day, with at least some of that walk time happening during work breaks or lunch. Exercise physiologist Steve Sanders, who is a spokesperson for the AHA, says regular exercise is a key factor in cardiovascular health. “Help reduce the risk of heart disease, which is the nation’s number-one killer of both men and women, help reduce obesity. You have to make you and your fitness a priority.” Sanders champions a walking exercise program because it has the lowest dropout rate of any type of physical activity. Plus, it’s free. “Even fitting in short sessions of walking, starting with five or 10 minutes for people who have been inactive, as long as you can accumulate two-and-half hours during the week - that’s the goal.”

Reduce, Reuse, Remember: Chester County saves thousands recycling By Holly Roeder Staff Writer

Last year, Chester County contributed 5,370 tons or 10,740,000 pounds to the masses of garbage filling landfills across the country. As startling as this may seem, there is good news. Due to conscientious community members, an innovative director and a hard working crew at the Chester County Solid Waste center, 1,082 tons (2,164,000 pounds) of waste was diverted from landfills and instead repurposed and restructured through recycling. In addition to benefits of less waste entering landfills, the county saw a monetary benefit as well. Chester County Sanitation must pay $40 per ton deposited at the landfill, which meant a savings of $43,280. The recycling business is a simple one and complex at the same time. The simple part falls to the duty of the community member – separating recyclables from household refuse and depositing it at one of the five Chester County sanitation convenience centers. The harder and more complex part of the recycling equation lies with the Center itself – what is done with the recyclables, sorting, bundling, storing, selling, etc. Director Danny Benard explained that in addition to a desire to simply do something good for the economy, and save money for the county, there is increasing legislation regarding recycling. A 1992 law, he said, required counties to divert 25 percent of all waste from the landfill. Chester County diverted in excess of that requirement, 48 percent for the year 2009. “I think we’re recycling everything except for glass,” said Benard of the many recycle bins seen around the county’s convenience centers. He reported having requests to include glass, but stated that it does not seem practical at this time. Chester County does, however, offer recycling options for batteries, oil, metal, newspaper, tires, aluminum cans, cardboard, pallets, clothing, office paper, plastic, and electronics. The largest amounts of items recycled in 2009 were 188 tons of metal, 189 tons of newspaper, and 445 tons of cardboard. In addition, Chester County recycled seven tons of plastics. While seven does not seem to compare to the 445 tons of cardboard, because of space, the bins fill up very quickly. “It surprised me,” said Benard of the amount of plastic bottles dropped off at recycle centers daily. Plastics accepted are PETE number 1 and

HDPE number 2. No. 1 plastic is clear, such as water bottles. No. 2 includes plastics that are not clear, such as milk jugs, medication bottles, etc. To make the process more efficient, loosen or remove tops from bottles for recycling, to enable the escape of air during the bundling process. Benard also said it is helpful to remove plastic or Styrofoam packaging from cardboard for recycling. Recycling and waste management is not to be taken lightly, and is something in which everyone must be involved. Benard actively researches and studies to make Chester County as efficient as possible. He is on the Board of Directors of Recycle Marketing Cooperation of Tennessee (RMCT) and recently spoke at the Tennessee Recycling Coalition and Solid Waste Recycling Convention. He stated that many states have already outlawed recyclables in landfills, and expects the rest to move toward that eventually. At this time, recycling is not required, but is recommended for Chester Countians. Benard suggested that many people do not know where waste goes, that it just disappears. What he does want people to know is that it is far cheaper to recycle than to put everything in a landfill, and better for the environment as well. “I’m grateful for people recycling,” Benard said. “If it wasn’t for the citizens, the ones that do recycle, it wouldn’t be a success.” Benard intends to increase the recycling program in Chester County, to stay ahead of required legislation that might otherwise create a strain on local requirements. Another thing Benard wants the people of Chester County to know is that the solid waste center is not a ‘dump.’ For those who have visited recently, they know it is anything but that these days. “It hasn’t been a landfill since ’92,” Benard said. Instead, the centers are known as recycling centers or convenience centers. If you haven’t been to the local convenience center lately, it is time you had a look. The Chester

This is for the birds! Rare breed of pigeon performs aerial acrobatics

James A. Webb General Manager/Editor

Birds were literally falling from the sky Saturday near Jacks Creek, but no, they were not filming a sequel to the famous Alfred Hitchcock thriller. Rather a group of enthusiasts were hosting a World Cup competition of Birmingham roller pigeons, hoping to qualify for the national competition later this summer. “What they do in the air is just amazing,” said Mario Solorio, one of the competitors. In a nutshell, what they do is fly in a group and suddenly tumble from the sky by doing rapid backward summersaults, recovering just in time to fly back to the group known as a “kit.” Often they perform these stunts in unison with several other birds. Ruben Solorio hosted this event at his residence off Johnson Crossroads Rd. He has been raising the rollers for 38 years, beginning as a child of only 8. “It’s basically a man-made breed,” he said. “It comes natural to them because it has been bred in to them.” He believes the technique was originally a type of defense mechanism against hawks which are known to prey on the pigeons, but no one knows for sure. There are more than 10,000 breeders around the world, getting its name from breeders in Birmingham, England. The birds can fly as high as 800 feet, and sometimes tumble to the ground, becoming injured. They fly best on overcast days which cause the kit to stay closer together and nearer the ground. A similar breed known as

parlor rollers lose their ability to fly as they mature. This breed does its rolling on the ground, with a world record roll of more than 1,000 feet. Ruben Solorio also raises white homing pigeons for release at weddings and other events. When released, they come right back home. Getting involved in the hobby can be a bit expensive with birds costing as much as $1,500. “But if someone wants to get

involved, we can help them do it rather inexpensively,” said Solorio. He said often breeders will simply give away some birds to get others started in the sport. Once you get started, it costs as little as $20 a month for feed. “Friendship is one reason these people are involved in the sport,” said one competitor from Union City. Others said it was simply the beauty of the birds and the pleasure of watching them fly.

Anyone interested in the sport is urged to contact Ruben Solorio at 9897437.

Child Abuse Prevention Month

Photo by James A. Webb, Independent

Children from the Chester County Head Start surround County Mayor Troy Kilzer and Henderson Mayor Bobby King as they sign a proclamation declaring April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. In making the proclamation, the mayors note the serious nature of the problem affecting nearly four million children annually, and crossing all socio-economic boundaries. They also praised the Exchange Club – Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse for its continued success in helping families break free from the cycle of abuse, and they urge full public support of the center’s efforts.

Cave to sign newest book Saturday in Jackson Richard Cave will be signing his newest release, a novel titled “The Struggle for the Bronze Cube” beginning at 10:30 Saturday morning at Something to Read Bookstore, 215 E.

Chester County Medical mission team serves nearly 2,300 in Haiti By Holly Roeder Staff Writer

In just five days, nearly 2,300 Haitians received much needed medical care when 39 volunteers spent their spring break in Haiti. An impressive 538 people were treated during one day of the clinic. A doctor, nurse practitioner, five RNs, FreedHardeman University students, staff, faculty, and other members of the community traveled to Haiti March 19-26, coinciding with the FreedHardeman spring break. Each person received a basic medical check-up including receiving vitamins and medications. Most common problems found included high blood pressure and bronchial problems resulting from pollution. In addition, they were able to remove several skin cancers. Because of the high

number of eyeglasses which had been destroyed or misplaced due to the earthquake, eye care was also included in the checkup. Over 600 pairs of good sunglasses were distributed to people who work a large amount of the time out in the sun, 450 pairs of reading glasses were fitted and 150 pairs of prescription eyeglasses were ordered. The only outstanding cost involved is approximately $20 for each pair of prescription glasses, amounting to a total of about $3,000, this being over the amount budgeted for the trip. The glasses are being prepared at an eye care lab in Memphis that donated the lab services. When finished, the prescription glasses will be shipped back to the Son Light Orphanage near Port au Prince and then distributed to those for whom they were ordered using a

time-tested claim-ticket system. Children also received a bonus when they came through the clinic. In addition to the basic health care, each child, numbering over 800, received a pair of flipflops, Crocs or sandals. Jan Sharp, of Henderson, was one of those who participated in the medical clinic. She said she feels it will be a long time before the community completely repairs itself. At this point the only major work being done is for businesses and government. “I think the challenge now is to find some work for the people to do, teach job skills, so they can earn a living,” she said, adding that many still need to find shelter. “Right now what Estes (church of Christ) is working on is buildings for schools and churches,” Sharp said. “Our push is to get these kids back in schools. It seems that educating the young people is going to be the key to overcoming their difficulties. It is not going to happen over night.”

Eaglettes take two of three Chester County took two of three district games last week in high school softball. The Eaglettes beat Bolivar Central 13-0, and Liberty Tech 18-1, but between those they were beaten by Lexington 5-1. In the win over Liberty, on April 7, Sammi Jo Ivy struck out nine, and allowed only two hits to garner the victory. The only run came on a walk, hit, and an error. The Eaglettes scored in every inning, and ended the game after only five innings. Ivy starred at the plate also with a three-forthree performance, two doubles, scored three times and drove in three more. Bailey Gately had three hits and two RBIs, and Jana Frye had two hits in the same inning. Meaghan Williams drove

in three runs on two hits, and Rachel Bishop had one hit and an RBI. Lexington scored three times in top of the first and never looked back in their victory over the Eaglettes. Beth Blackstock reached on a walk to open the bottom of the first for CCHS, scoring on a single by Julia Weeks, and a ground out by Katie Hall. However, after that CCHS got only one other runner as far as third base. The only other hits by the Eaglettes were a seventh-inning single by Kamara Trice, and Logan McEarl’s fifth inning double. The win over Bolivar was another run-ruled victory for the Eaglettes in five innings. Trice did not give up a hit, striking out See SOFT, Page 2-B

Lions take two of three from Bethel, fall to second in TranSouth standings The Freed-Hardeman Lions came within an inning of sweeping a three-game series from the 13th ranked team in the country last weekend, but settled for a doubleheader split at Bethel University in McKenzie. Coupled with a singlegame win Friday, FHU is now 26-12, and 6-3 and tied for second place in the TranSouth Conference with Union University, one game behind C u m b e r l a n d . The Lions won the first game 7-6 Saturday, before losing the second game 43. Charlie Overturf went the distance in game one, allowing six runs on nine hits while striking out four. The Lions took a 4-1 lead in the third inning of the first game Saturday, highlighted by a basesclearing double by Leamond Arthur, one of

six hits in the inning. Bethel responded with two runs in the bottom of the frame and tied the game up in the fourth on a solo home run by Billy Keck. The game remained tied until the sixth inning when FHU put together a two-out rally to score three times. After Bethel’s Cody Fitzpatrick retired the first two hitters, the Lions strung together four hits to break the tie. Overturf (5-0) set the Wildcats down in order in the sixth but got into trouble in the seventh, before stranding the tying run at third base. The second game was a pitcher’s duel early with FHU’s Derek Williford and Bethel’s Turner Cripps throwing scoreless ball for the first three innings. FHU finally broke through in the top of the fourth with three runs,

the final run coming on a squeeze bunt by Josh Reynolds that brought in Derek Bush. The Wildcats managed to get a run back in the fourth, but Williford worked out of a jam in the fifth and stranded two runners as the Lions held onto a two-run lead with two innings left. Things continued to go FHU’s way as the Lions got two quick outs to open the sixth, but the Wildcats put together a two-out rally of their own, getting three runs to take a 4-3 lead. The Lions threatened in the seventh, getting their first two runners on base after Robert Prieto drew a walk and Joe Mike singled. But Noslen Labrada struck out and, after the runner advanced on a wild pitch and Brian Bullard was intentionally walked, Evan Mansell grounded into a 5-3 double

play to end the game. Friday the Lions won 10-8. After Prieto led off the game with a home run to give FHU a quick lead, Bethel jumped on Lion starter Hunter Newby early and knocked the 6foot-8 righty out of the game before he got out of the first inning. Newby gave up five runs on five hits - including a two-run home run by Jonathan Deberry - before giving way to Gage Franklin with two outs. The freshman got FHU out of the inning by getting Bethel leadoff hitter Jay Lowery to ground back to the pitcher’s mound. It was the start of eight

straight Bethel hitters retired by Franklin, who kept the Wildcats off the board for the next three innings and gave the Lions (25-11, 5-2) a chance to get back into the game. Bullard helped the Lions do just that with a three-run home run (8) in the third to bring FHU within one run. Bethel answered in the fifth inning on Jake Ramsey’s solo shot, which was also the first hit allowed by Franklin (4-1). The Lions broke through again in the sixth inning, taking the lead with four runs in the frame on RBI singles by Bush, Mansell and Arthur.

The two teams traded punches over the next two innings, sometimes in the form of solo home runs FHU’s coming from Mansell, his third of the season. Each team scored one run from the bottom of the sixth through the top of the eighth, with Arthur’s double leading to Prieto coming in to score on a Bethel error, giving the Lions a 10-8 lead. Amos Bingham entered in the eighth and shut down the Wildcats for the last two innings to pick up the save, retiring six of the seven hitters he faced. Arthur led the way at the plate for FreedSee FHU, Page 3-B

Caldwell’s dominance leads to FHU sweep Britney Caldwell turned in a pair of outstanding performances in the circle as the FreedHardeman Lady Lions swept a softball doubleheader from Lyon College, 7-1 and 4-0, on Friday afternoon at Morgan Stadium in Henderson. The Pipers actually started the day off with singles in their first two at-bats and scored in the first inning of game one on an RBI groundout by Tenequa Martin. That, however, would be the last time they would score in either game. FHU (14-18, 5-5) used small ball in the second inning to lead to three runs, getting three runners on base via the bunt two of which reached on wild throws and led to a run. Traci Gibbons made Lyon further pay for those miscues with a two-run single to left field that gave the Lady Lions a 3-1 lead. Jill Brock’s basesloaded double in the fourth extended FreedHardeman’s lead to 6-1 and Amber Vansandt added an RBI single in the sixth to score FHU’s final run of the first game. Caldwell continued her dominance in game two, recording her third shutout of the season while allowing just three hits. The Lady Lions got two runs in the second, the first scoring on a wild pitch and the second coming in on a sacrifice fly by Caldwell. FHU added a run in the fourth on a squeeze bunt by Caneisha Turner and another in the fifth on an RBI single by Betsy Pickler.

Caldwell (13-9) struck out three in each game and did not issue a walk in either game. Brock, Gibbons, Turner and Brittany Yates each had two hits in game one. Brock, Yates and Brittany Steverson all collected a pair of hits in game two.

One for each On April 6, the Lady Lions split two games with No. 24 Martin Methodist, winning the first game 6-4 before falling in the nightcap, 9-1. In game one, FHU used some timely hitting while taking advantage of a pair of MMC defensive miscues to score four times in the fourth inning and take a 4-2 lead. Caldwell led off the inning with a home run (5) and after Yates struck out, Pickler singled and was brought home by an RBI double from Steverson, who was hitting sixth for the first time this season. Steverson advanced to third on a single by Gibbons and later scored on a passed ball. The final run of the inning also came as the result of an error as Megan Kinsey made a wild throw on Caneshia Turner’s bunt, allowing Gibbons to score from second. Kinsey made two more errors in the fifth inning that led to another run for Freed-Hardeman, and the Lady Lions extended their lead to 6-2 in the seventh thanks to Steverson’s second RBI double of the game. MMC (28-11, 4-4) made things interesting in the bottom of the seventh, getting back-to-back singles to start the inning and scoring on an error by

Augusta McClary. But Caldwell, who went the distance in the circle, retired the next three batters to end the game. The second game was a pitcher’s duel for five innings, with the RedHawks taking a 2-1 lead into the sixth. Caldwell started off by retiring the first nine batters she faced before MMC got a pair of runs in the fourth to answer a Lady Lion run in the top of the frame. FHU had chances to retake the lead in the next two innings. The Lady Lions loaded the bases in the fifth with one out, but Katlin White replaced Chrissy Worth in the circle for MMC and struck out the next two hitters to end the threat. One inning later, Karina De Los Santos made a leaping catch at the fence to rob Caldwell of what would have been a two-run home run.

Blackburn worked six and one-third innings, allowing just three hits before giving way to Bingham after walking consecutive batters in the seventh. After retiring the first batter he faced, Bingham gave up a single to load the bases but kept Lambuth off the board by striking out Mitch McClay to end the inning. The Lion offense, meanwhile, had less trouble scoring runs as FHU crossed the plate in six of the game’s nine innings. A Mark Kelley single opened the scoring in the top of the second, and the Lions plated three in the third, one in the fourth and

one in the fifth to take a 60 lead into the bottom of the inning. Blackburn (3-3), meanwhile, cruised through six innings, allowing no more than one runner to reach base until the seventh before being relieved by Bingham. The senior walked four and struck out three. FHU added to its lead with two-run home runs by Arthur in the eighth and Kelley in the ninth. Bush also hit a solo blast in the fifth. The Lions finished the day with 14 hits, Bush leading the way with three. Kelley had two hits as did Prieto and Mansell.

Every other Lion starter had one hit in the game.

FHU Hardeman with three hits. Prieto and Mansell each had two hits.

By Rosemary McKnight Students, faculty, and staff are enjoying a week off for Spring Break. They should come back on Monday rested and ready to begin TCAP testing on Tuesday. The past week can be summarized in one expression – TCAP preparation. Of course, students have been preparing for the state test since the first day of school. The past few weeks have been used for lots of review, practice, and teaching test-taking skills. Thirdgrade classes completed a practice test book from the State Department of Education. This helped them understand the format of the test and how to use answer sheets. East Chester is grateful for our instructional coaches, Sarah Hibbett and Mary Katras, for the extra help they have provided the past few weeks. They have prepared power point lessons, jeopardy games, and other resources that have been very helpful in reviewing the state standards. From the first bell until the last bell, students have been working hard. Principal Kim Scott has

EEdduuccaattiioonn had students reviewing our “important words” each morning during announcements. These words include higherlevel thinking verbs such as summarize, support, trace, evaluate, compare, contrast, describe and analyze. During the announcements a student also reads about a famous American or an important event that happened on that day in history. East Chester has some special plans for TCAP week. Monday students will receive “thinking caps.” They will also get sno-cones as a reminder that they are going to “lick the test.” Students are encourage to wear red on Tuesday to show “We’re ‘Red’y’ for the Test.” On Wednesday, they will wear green as a symbol that “We’re the Mean, Green Test-Taking Machine.” Thursday students will wear orange as we celebrate “‘Orange’ You Glad We’re Almost Finished with the Test Day.” Finally, on Friday students will wear blue to show “We ‘Blue’ the Test Away!” PTO will provide snacks for students each morning as they take a break from testing. The following are reminders of ways parents can help their children do their best: • Provide a healthy breakfast for your child. • Make sure that your child attends school. • Be sure that your child is at school on time and feels relaxed.

• Encourage your child to do the best work possible. • Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep. • Be positive as you talk to your child about the test. April has several special events. Kindergarten registration will be held at North Chester on April 22-23. Notices were send home to help parents understand the required documents that are necessary for registration. Kindergarten Round-Up will be held on April 27. Kindergarten students will go on their field trip on April 28 and first grade will have a field trip on April 29. Students will not attend school on April 30. This is a staff development day. Second grade will be traveling to the Dixie Carter Performing Arts Center in Huntingdon on May 3 to see a performance of The Velveteen Rabbit. Third-graders will be going to the West Tennessee Agriculture Museum in Milan on May 4-5. Parents will receive information about these field trips in the coming weeks. East Chester said goodbye to Reba Hunt on Friday. Mrs. Hunt has been teaching third grade since February. We welcome back Kim Murphy who has been on maternity leave. We appreciate the good job Ms. Reba has done. East Chester hopes everyone has an enjoyable Spring Break.

By Melinda Carroll We hope everyone is enjoying spring break and the beautiful weather! Next week will be TCAP week. We should all be rested and ready! Parents, please make sure your child gets to school on time and stays all day unless there is an emergency or illness. Also, encourage your child to get plenty of sleep each night and eat a good breakfast every morning. Number two pencils and erasers are required for the test. We want the week to be as stress-free as possible! Students in Amy Wooley’s class have enjoyed watching their tulips bloom this spring that they planted in the fall. Three classes were treated with visits from SSG Raymond Mitchell of

Thursday, April 15, 2010 the HHC 194th Engineer Brigade. Michelle Reddin’s first-graders, Vicki Brower’s secondgraders, and Melinda Carroll’s third-graders had written SSG Mitchell while he was stationed in Iraq. He talked to these students about his work and gave each student a piece of Iraqi money. SSG Mitchell is the husband of our teacher assistant Ms. Sara and the brother of Vicki Brower. Students are still receiving Accelerated

Reader trophies as they reach the required point levels. The program continues until April 29. Librarian Caroline Johnson reported that Jared Gilliam has now reached 200 AR points! Melinda Carroll’s thirdgraders are still working on timed multiplication and division tests. Kayla Thomas has now completed all of her tables. Way to go, Kayla! Teachers and staff know that Jacks Creek students will really shine next week during TCAP test-

Immunization changes announced Beginning July 1, the Tennessee Department of Health has new immunization requirements for children enrolling in childcare and school. Children who start prekindergarten, kindergarten, seventh grade, or are a new student in
