Phil Bredesen and the Federal Emergency Management Agency Monday. Bredesen said $28 million has been approved to help with disaster efforts. “We are very pleased with the pace of recovery operations, but we aren’t letting up,” issued Bredesen in a statement. “State agencies and the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency will continue working hand-in-hand with FEMA and local partners to make sure those affected by the flooding have access to the resources they need to help rebuild their lives.

County commissioners vote 17-1 to strip constables of their power A century ago the constable position in law enforcement was not only considered an asset to the community, but an essential service. “The office of constable was created when the sheriff was a one-agent position, when there were no deputies, no justice center, no 911…” explained county attorney John Talbott. “The role they served 150 years ago is not the role they serve today.” Due to what commissioners say is a major liability issue for the county, citing lack of proper training, the board voted 17-1 during the Monday night meeting to abolish law enforcement powers of the Chester County constables. Commissioner Barry Hutcherson was the lone vote, voting to keep them armed. Currently the newly passed resolution would only affect four constables that serve in their residing districts. The resolution goes into effect at the end of their term in August. Rhoda Smith, who is gunning for the sheriff’s position, approached the board in favor of keeping the constables in power.

“They’re free labor and it doesn’t cost the community a dime if we keep them,” Smith said while commenting her own business has been robbed twice. One commissioner retaliated, “What good is it when a constable writes a ticket, and the judge won’t prosecute the violators?” Chester County resident Jamie Miller, who is running for constable in District 2, approached the board stating ridding the constables of their power would be a bad decision. “They provide a quick response during emergencies,” Miller said. “And they can serve warrants.” Sheriff Blair Weaver said if the board passed the resolution eliminating their powers, the constables would still be able to serve warrants. “And if there’s an emergency, the sheriff has the right to deputize anyone, whatever is justifiable,” explained Weaver. Talbott reminded the commissioners if a constable was acting inappropriately and negligently while serving, any lawsuit filed against the officer would very likely be issued back to the county. “I know we have remote areas in this county, but we’ve never had a problem with our law enforcement officers (deputies) showing up when we need them,” said Commissioner Buddy Richardson. “We’ve got some good law enforcement here, I really see no need in having the constables a part of our law enforcement.” Two sheriff’s deputies are on See COUNTY, Page 3-A

School board approves tentative budget Jacks Creek principal to say good bye The Chester County Board of Education has given approval to the first draft of its 2010-11 budget. That action came during the board’s regularly schedule meeting Thursday, May 6, at the Board of Education office. The board expects a budget of $16,117,666 with expected revenues of $16,118,292. Of those revenues, more than $13 million will come from the state, and $2,407,000 from local taxes. This budget, if finalized at the next meeting, will be an increase of almost $900,000 over the present school year’s budget. In other business, the board approved several budget

amendments, and gave its approval for participation in special programs – Comprehensive Title I, II, III, IV, V, IDEA; Vocational and Perkins; Child Nutrition, Extended Contract; and Technology Plan, Coordinated School Health, PreK. The board gave its approval for the Technology Interventions special course which is not on the approved state list, and must be applied for each year. This is the Credit Recovery Program at the high school which has been judged very successful. Superintendent John Pipkin also recommended, and the board approved, tenure for PreK teacher Rachel Morris. Pipkin explained that Morris’ name had been left off the list which he presented at the March meeting. The board approved some changes to the policy manual

which became necessary for the upcoming switch from sixweeks to nine-weeks grading periods. They also made a change in the percentage of end of course exams as part of the final grade. Pipkin gave a report to the board concerning the use of the Race to the Top Grant. In his report to the board about ongoing projects, Pipkin first noted that flooding at Jacks Creek Elementary resulted in the closing of the school on Monday, April 26. However, he noted that quick work by school personnel and volunteers, plus a crew from ServPro of Jackson, prevented the school from being closed much longer. The flooding was discovered Saturday, April 24, due to a clogged drain pipe which resulted in up to two inches of water in much of the new part of the building, and the north side of See SCHOOL, Page 3-A

moments in which I will never forget.” Mullins is asking for your support and also your vote in electing him the next sheriff of Chester County. “With this duty, I will work dilligently to make our neighborhoods and streets safer. I will make it my top priority to remove the drugs and alcohol from our city and county schools,” Mullins stated. “Education is the key to achieving this. Our kids need to be more aware of the effects and consequences of alcohol, prescription drugs, and narcotic use. “I will also work to increase the presence of police on our streets, to persuade criminals that this is not the county they want to be in.” Mullins understands this will not be an easy

MULLINS task, and he said there is much work to be done. “Your vote for me will be a step in the future of our great community. By achieving these major goals, we will give Chester County the reputation it deserves as a safe, family oriented community which families would be proud to call home. Thanks in advance for your vote!” (Paid for by Jerry “Ray” Mullins.)

FHU to graduate 293 this Saturday On Saturday, May 15, Freed-Hardeman University will hold its annual spring commencement exercises for 293 students. The graduation ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. in Loyd Auditorium. A senior class photo will precede the event at 8:15 a.m. on the front lawn of Old Main Administration Building.

that was 25 years old,” said Bernard. Bernard said the bailer the county waste department currently uses is designed to only bail cardboard. But residents will bring in aluminum, plastics, and newspapers. The current bailer only bails about five bails of recycling per day, “right now we need to be able to bail about twice of that.” “The new bailer will bail about five to 10 bails per hour and it will bail plastic as fast it would cardboard,” said Bernard. Last year Bernard said he bailed 1,080 tons of recycling, with everyone chipping in on the ‘green’ movement. He said last weekend he was getting

phone calls from displeased residents that the recycling containers were running over. “For the first time since I’ve started this I had to start turning people away with recycles,” he added. “I hate to stop a program I’ve got going real good.” Bernard expects the bailing and conveyer equipment to cost around the $70,000 mark. He added there was a sufficient amount of funds in the waste management budget to cover all costs. The board also approved the continuing school budget for 20102011, approved the local board of equalization, and approved sponsorship of a Boys State delegate.

along the railway and said the railroad owner suspects $5 million in damage. Most of the railroad damage was listed in Gibson County. “There are places where the only thing holding the ties up is the rail,” said Kilzer. “And some of the rails are off to the side. “That railroad has been there since 1859, and there’s a good possibility it may not survive this, that’s how bad it is.” Kilzer also expressed his relief when he learned that the new criminal justice complex received no flood damage after the storms, although it is constructed in a low-lying area which typically floods. Kilzer announced a tentative May 26 completion date for the jail. King informed Fugate stressed if a FEMA representative comes to your residence to survey your damage they will have proper federal identification and will not under any circumstance ask for your social security number or money. If someone claiming to be associated with FEMA asks for either, you are urged to report them to local authorities immediately. If you are a local busi-

ness and suffered weather-related damages due to last week’s storm you may seek assistance through the Small Business Administration. Home owners who suffered damage should contact the FEMA help line listed below. “We strongly encourage Tennesseans to register for assistance as soon as possible,” said Federal Coordinating Office Gracia Szczech. “Registration only takes about 30 minutes and once we hear from people, we can help them receive the assistance they may need.” Victims of severe storms, flooding, straightline winds and tornadoes beginning April 30 in Tennessee may qualify for tax relief from the Internal Revenue Service. As a result, the IRS is postponing until June 29 certain deadlines for taxpayers who reside or have a business in the disaster area. In addition, the IRS will waive the failure to deposit penalties for employment and excise deposits due on or after April 30 and on or before May 17, as long as the deposits are made by May 17.

In other matters the board voted to allow Chester County Solid Waste Director Danny Bernard to purchase a recycling bailer. Bernard told commissioners Monday night he had to turn people away from the recycling unit due to being unable to operate the facility efficiently. “I started the recycling program in 1996 and purchased a bailer for $9,000

King said Chester County will receive 75 percent of their total loss from federal aid, 12.5 percent from state aid, and the city and county will match 12.5 percent. Although most residents were fortunate and avoided flood damage, Chester County and the City of Henderson’s infrastructure took a blow when the flood waters spread into two city lagoons and caused more than 30 county roads to suffer damage. “This is going to be a long process,” King informed. “FEMA will have to first come down here and test our lagoons for their condition, that’s the first step. The lagoons are going to be our biggest issue.” Kilzer has concerns about the railroad that runs through Chester County from South Fulton to Corinth. He said the abundance of flood waters damaged the bridges

School the older part. The cleanup is still on-going. The weekend of May 1-2 also resulted in some flooding in Williams Auditorium at the Middle School, as well as the Jacks Creek library. Pipkin also reported on the progress of an Energy Efficiency Grant and the replacement of lighting at East Chester Elementary, as well as the replacement of ceiling tiles at West Chester. In addition, an irrigation system on the football field of Eagle Stadium was well underway. In other business, Jacks Creek Elementary Principal Latasha Phillips surprised some with an announcement of her impending retirement.

Board members approved the change of the week of Spring Break for next year to April 4-8, 2011, due to a conflict with the scheduling of the ACT Test.

Belated birthday wishes to Erma McNeil on May 9. A year has gone by since the loss of our cousin and dear friend, James A. Patterson (3-111936/5-15-2009). We think of him often when we use the deck he built and the bookcase in the sunroom. He was always ready to help others. He was a fine man and will always be missed in our community. He was an Army veteran and served in Germany from 1958-1960. It is true, “What you do for yourself dies with you; what you do for others lives on.”

I hope all the mothers had a good Mother’s Day with their families. I had lunch with my mother, daughter and her family. Mother’s Day is very special to me. It is great to be a mother and grandmother and to get some special attention that day. I am so fortunate to still have my mother and I am going to show her my love and attention everyday. Mother’s Day emerged from a custom of mother worship in ancient Greece, which kept a festival to Cybele, a great mother of Greek gods.{Encyclopædia Britannica|(1959)Vol.15,p. 849} This festival was held around the Vernal Equinox around Asia Minor and eventually in Rome itself from the Ides of March (15

March) to 18 March. The ancient Romans also had another holiday, Matronalia, that was dedicated to Juno, though mothers were usually given gifts on this day. In Europe there were several long standing traditions where a specific Sunday was set aside to honor motherhood and mothers such as Mothering Sunday. Mothering Sunday celebrations are part of the liturgical calendar in several Christian denominations, including Anglicans, and in the Catholic calendar is marked as Laetare Sunday, the fourth Sunday in Lent to honor the Virgin Mary and your “mother” church (the main church of the area). Historians think that children who served in houses were given a day off on that date so they could visit their families. The children would pick wild flowers along the way to place them on the church or to give them to their mothers as gifts. International Women’s Day was celebrated for the first time on February 28,

1909, in the US, by which time Anna Jarvis had already begun her national campaign in the US. It is now celebrated in many countries on March 8. The “Mother’s Day Proclamation” by Julia Ward Howe was one of the early calls to celebrate Mother’s Day in the United States. Written in 1870, Howe’s Mother’s Day Proclamation was a pacifist reaction to the carnage of the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War. The Proclamation was tied to Howe’s feminist belief that women had a responsibility to shape their societies at the political level. In 1912, Anna Jarvis trademarked the phrases “second Sunday in May” and “Mother’s Day”, and created the Mother’s Day International Association. We had a good time at Bethel Sunday. There were gifts given to the oldest mother, youngest mother, the one with the most children and the one with the youngest child. I thought it was a nice thing to do for the mothers of our church.

Pleasant Springs Methodist Church had their 131st Homecoming Sunday and I know it was a good time. There were a lot of people there when I passed. On our prayer list this week: Jean Murley, Winna Knipper, Larry Privett, Teresa Colbert, Nancy Turner, Dennis Bain, Sherry Roark, and Linda Holder. It is so good to have Jean and Charles Murley back at church. We missed you. I got a thank you note from Linda Holder thanking me for putting her on our prayer list. She appreciates us praying for her as I know everyone does. Our birthdays this week are: Kehlie Hopper on the 12th; Tyler Hopper on the 17th; and Lilly (Margie) Melton on the 18th. She is my cousin in Chicago and reads the Independent. Quote of the week: There are two ways of meeting difficulties: you alter the difficulties, or you alter yourself to meet them. - Phyllis Battome Have a great week!

Ava Grace Goings, daughter of John and Br enda Goings of Memphis, celebrated her second birthday March 3 with a Cinder ella party at her home. She is the granddaughter of Charles and Joy Leath of Finger and John and Barbara Goings of Memphis. Gr eatgrandparents ar e the late Kenneth and Jewell Massengill, the late J.H. and Pauline Leath, the late Albert and Madge Curl, and the late James and Gloria Goings. Ava has one brother, Noah, age 4.

News from Enville Community Club The Enville Community Club met with about 65 members/visitors present. It was a festivity instead of a meeting dedicated to Mr. Vernon McCombs. Eighteen years ago, Vernon and Marene retired to their “Home” town where they both grew up. “Got Georgia on my mind” are the words depicting Mr. Vernon’s move from Enville to Cartersville, Ga. He will be joining his son, Steve and family, for a new page in his life. The town of Enville honored him on Tuesday, May 4 with a “going away” party, attended by Enville’s finest people. Jack O’Neal told about his life long friendship with Mr. Vernon and the very funny tricks they played on each other.

Others recalled “the times” they will hold as memories for years to come. “We will miss you” was the greatest response from many. In addition to his many fine qualities and noted for his helping others, he became “famous” for his Tea Cake Cookies and his own recipe for Peach Cobbler, which he took to many of the gatherings in Enville. (He made copies of these recipes for everyone and had them handed out at the party). Enville Mayor, Steven Grisham, honored Mr. Vernon by giving him the key to the city, a very humbling and unexpected surprise! With a loss for words, he humorously asked, “Is this the key to the bank?” Michael Pool, Mr.

Vernon’s grandson in-law, from Waynesboro, played his guitar and sang many of his grandfather’s favorite songs. “Love Sick Blues”, and now I’m so “Lonesome All the Time”, “Heartache by the Number”, “Singing the Blues”, “Act Naturally”, and “California Blues”. Michael had everyone tapping their toes, and as for his grandfather, who turned 86 years young on May 9 – He had no problem dancing the night away with many, young and younger, one right after another, while his grandson played for Him. It was a fun night and everyone left with a smile on their face and a full stomach. Favorite dishes brought by everyone filled four tables. Truly, it was a

night to remember. Rocky Nowell took Mr. Vernon home on his motorcycle and as they drove off, Mr. Vernon’s remarks, “God bless each one of you, and may God’s peace rest in this place! Mr. Vernon’s daughter, Judy Rechtfertia (from Sachse,Texas) and the family sends a “Thank You” to everyone in Enville for all you have done. I would like to personally thank Judy along with Debbie Vinson for sharing the pictures they took, with others. The only news I can recall, Douglas Young from Adamsville (who lives in Leapwood) was the graduating student chosen to receive the $500 scholarship award from the Enville Community Club.

I’ve seen enough water and snakes! Everyone is busy getting their gardens in and I’m still dragging my feet. My grandson says, “Grandmother, are you gonna grow something or not?” Faith Baptist Men’s Bible Study is at 7 p.m. May 13 and 27 in the loft. The men’s breakfast is at

8 a.m. May 15 in the CLC. On our prayer list are Chrissy Busby, Betty Stout, Mary Russell, Teresa Colbert, Brenda Collins, Angela Newsom, David Varvel, Rayford Mayfield, and our military and their families. Birthday greetings to Lacey Jenkins on May 13; Jean Pickett on May 14; and Lequita Pickett Wylie and JorDanna Jenkins on May 18. Happy anniversary to Bud and Kathy Ward on May 13; Neal and Nancy Kinchen on May 15; and Spencer and Grace Goodwin will be married 68 years on May 18… what a milestone!

Thanks and acknowledgment goes to “Bishops Country Store” for cooking the barbeque pork, and slaw; also “Enville Market and Grill” for the coffee, slaw, etc. The Enville fire chief

would like to remind the volunteer firemen of how much their support of the department is appreciated. Both supporters and volunteers are all essential. Just a reminder. Stacy Goodwin, Pastor-Enville Baptist Church has announced that each month on the second Saturday there will be a women’s bible study from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. It is lead by Darla Goodwin. The ladies are going through a Beth Moore study on David. If anyone would like a book, it can be purchased at LifeWay in Jackson, a book will be helpful but not necessary. For more information contact Darla Goodwin at 9893378. As always pray for the sick, our troops and their families. But oh! The blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one’s deepest as well as one’s most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.

CAPITOL HILL REVIEW Ignition interlock clears hurdle The ignition interlock proposal championed by the Tennessee General Assembly for a number of years cleared a major hurdle last week as the Budget Subcommittee overwhelmingly approved the measure. The bill requires anyone convicted of a DUI with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .15 or higher to use the ignition interlock device (IID). Ignition interlock devices, which have been implemented around the country, tests the driver’s BAC level. If it is above the set limit, the car will not start. The legislation hit roadblocks in past years and was sent to a summer study committee in 2009 by the Criminal Practice and Procedure Subcommittee. Having now passed the Budget Subcommittee, the legislation will be heard next week in the House Finance, Ways and Means Committee.

Workers’ compensation issues The Consumer and Employee Affairs Committee discussed the workers’ compensation insurance issue at length last week, hammering out a proposal that advanced to the House Government Operations Committee. Under the legislation, anyone engaged in the construction industry must carry workers’ compensation insurance on any employee, as well as any subcontractor not otherwise covered by a policy. Sole proprietors, partners, officers of corporations and members of limited liability companies will be required to carry workers’ compensation insurance on themselves. However, sole proprietors, partners, officers of corporations and members of limited liability companies engaged as contractors may exempt themselves from workers’ compensation coverage if they: own at least 30 percent of the business; and serve in a supervisory role while attending the worksite without engaging in any of the sub-classifications for the building construction categories listed in rules set by the Tennessee board for licensing contractors The General Assembly approved legislation during the Extraordinary Session in January that suspended a newly implemented law to require sole proprietors and partners engaged in the construction industry to carry workers’ compensation coverage on themselves due to unintended effects of the act. In the meantime, the legislature has discussed alternative ways to address gaps in coverage for workers in the construction industry without harming small business owners, while providing added protections for third partners and responsible contractors.

Little Red Schoolhouse: Reflecting on my past In west Tennessee, just off Hwy 22 on Leapwood Drive, about halfway between Nashville and Memphis, there is a red brick building that was an elementary school for many years. The little school had three teachers and four rooms. In one of the rooms there was a partition that had a stage and a dressing room. There was also a supply room and a coat closet. It had a circular drive, and one bus driver. The building was built on land that was purchased for $300 from Fielding and Zora Maness in 1941, according to records obtained from the Chester County Courthouse in Henderson. World War II was in progress in 1941. Pearl Harbor was bombed and

the United States and Britain declared war on Japan. Also in 1941, Germany declared war on the United States. Perhaps the war was the reason the school was built without indoor plumbing or a heating system. The pot bellied stoves were used for heating and two outhouses, one for the girls and one for the boys was used. The pot bellied stoves were replaced with gas heaters in the late ‘50s. In the early ‘60s, when I attended school there, was when indoor plumbing was installed because of a spring storm that destroyed the outhouses. That school provided me with the foundation for my education. That is where I also learned to appreciate music and art. Even though they did not have an art or music department, they had a music teacher who came

to the school and gave piano lessons. There was a recital every year, and the whole school was in the recital. The children that did not take piano lesson were in the chorus. Every year before Christmas break, the school put on a Christmas program with singing and a nativity scene. There was a big Christmas tree, and presents were handed out. Some of my older cousins attended school there. The teachers even remembered their names because a couple of them were good artists. I remember my cousin Joe liked to draw and paint when he was not in trouble. Joe never talked about those teachers; maybe his memories of that school were not pleasant ones. About every 10 years, I drive by to look at that old school house. The old school house was a factory

for several years, which helped the economy in the area. The factory owners built a new building but that old school still stands. A new roof was put on the old school house in 2008; I hope that building always is there to remind us of our past. It does not matter how high tech we become, the basics of education are always the same. The computer makes learning easier. Children can progress at their own rate with a computer, but they still need to be taught to appreciate art and literature the same way I learned in the Little Red Schoolhouse.

Mother’s Day was made special for three women I know in the Creek. Michael Bailey rotated tires, changed the oil, and put three tigresses in his tank - well, perhaps near the tank! He headed to Ohio with Fran Bailey, Delana O’Neal and Debbie Smith to visit Joey and Rebecca Ashbrook on Mother’s Day. Soon Joey and Rebecca will be moving, so Joey can start law school in Virginia. Grandparents, Emmett and Margie Hatchet are looking forward to the “very first” June birthday party for Kylan, daughter of Kevin and Meagan Smith King. Delana O’Neal already has Kylan’s bathing suit and sunglasses bought for her “very first” swim in the creek. I have the life preserver. I think she’ll take the plunge. Kylan may attend Jacks Creek School kindergarten graduation Friday at 2 p.m. in the gym to see cap and gown wardrobe. In case of rain this weekend, the Liles-Lyles reunion will be at Regina and Mike Brooks’s home. If you are family or a friend of these families, bring a dish and be part of the first ever reunion of these names combined. Regina might open her shed outback, and perhaps she’ll practice making those buttermilk pies for the Jacks Creek Community Club dinner meeting Thursday at 6 p.m.

Old Jacks Creek Baptist Church has its Decoration Day this weekend as reported to me. No one has called to report Roby or Shiloh’s Decoration Days (blondes do forget). Last weekend the cemetery was a “pretty flower garden” at Johnson Crossroads as Forest Maness used to say. Wouldn’t a couple of Cindy Springer’s yellow knockout roses be pretty beside the brick cemetery sign? Got to get back to the Sweetlips nursery for more flowers and garden items – can’t let Wayne Moody outwork me. He leaves before I even get out of the bed to go mow lawns. It would please Pauline Holmes to see her place kept so neat. Have you noticed how Nadine Loser’s snapdragons pop? They come back each year, so guess what I’m “popping” next week? Want to go back in time 25 years (May l985)? Gallon of gasoline ($1.09); postage stamp (22 cents); pound of bacon ($1.65); average monthly rent ($375); average new home ($89,000); average monthly income ($22,000); movie ticket ($2.75); Joint French-American expedition locate wreck of Titanic; Microsoft Corporation release “Window 1.0”. I’m in a good mood – I’m only age 34; plus, 50 pounds lighter! I like going back in time! The first week of May brought sadness to families of Raymond “Shorty” Moody (7-27-41/5-14-10), daddy of Rita (Mike) Cothren and Doris (Dwight) Pusser; James Haskins (8-14-28/5-7-10) who was born in Henderson County - burial in Mifflin - he was a WWII US Army veteran; and

Lloyd Dodd (9-21-21/5-1010). Our community expresses sorrow to you. Also, our sorrow goes to the family of Ken Johnson, son of Frank and Classie Johnson, brother of Kim Phelps. He was killed in a car accident May 6. The Chester County Healthcare will have a memorial for those that died within the year. It is Wednesday, May 26 at 2 p.m. Share a walk down memory lane and know there is another world to sing in happily. Several we still miss from the Jacks Creek area Pauline Hart Climer Holmes; Lester Jacobs; William Stovall; Allen Peddy; Lucy Cordelia Lyles; Geneva Crowe; James Cash; Paul Williams, and Mildred Williams Menzies. Others dear friends we miss from other healthcares are Dorothy Jones, Hattie Melton; Francis Climer; and Raymelle Nobles Elder; and other local friends are Isaiah Ross; and Frank Ross. Our dear Americans serving in the five US mil-

itary branches (Army, Navy, Marine, Air Force, and Coast Guard) are honored during Armed Forces Day the third Saturday in May. This year Armed Forces Day is May 15 and Memorial Day is May 31. Research not verified by Army records list three surviving WWI veterans worldwide (Frank Buckles is the only surviving American WWI veteran; he turned age 109 on Feb. 1 in West Virginia). Sadly about 1,100 WWII veterans die each day, but “As long as we don’t forget the soldiers, they will never die”. Wish surviving WWII veterans could go to Washington, DC to see the memorial carved in their honor. They so richly deserve to have that moment in time frozen forever between the pages of their minds and sealed in their hearts. All soldiers from all wars deserve recognition. Remember our soldiers far from home as we fly Old Glory. Soldiers help give us the right to fly it proudly. God bless them and the USA.

Update on unemployment trust fund The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development gave the House Consumer and Employee Affairs Committee a snapshot of where the state’s unemployment compensation fund currently stands. A representative from the department said the fund currently has a balance of approximately $8 million, but is in the process of receiving first quarter taxes from employers and should have about $221.4 million by the second quarter of this year. The state had taken in 58,569 claims by the end of January, a decrease of about 36 percent from January of 2009. Tennessee has a $120 million line of credit with the U.S. Department of Labor and to date has only tapped $20 million of those funds. On March 3, the Governor requested a loan from the U.S. Secretary of Labor due to the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s promise that the $20 million will be paid back in the next couple of weeks. The legislature voted last year to save Tennessee’s Unemployment Trust Fund from federal intervention, saying that the move was necessary to keep the federal government from completely taking over the nearly insolvent fund. The fund was approaching insolvency after the state unemployment rate jumped to 10 percent in 2009, and with the continuously rising percentage of Tennesseans out of work, the fund is being drained of resources. Many legislators supported the move, on the condition that a series of triggers allow unemployment taxes to decrease if the fund’s balance reaches a certain threshold.

Unemployment numbers improve Despite continued reports of a weak economy, Tennessee’s unemployment numbers improved slightly in the month of March, according to recent reports. Eighty-five of the state’s 95 counties saw their unemployment rate decrease. Overall, unemployment in the state dropped to 10.6 percent, compared to 10.7 in February. According to the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, 6,600 job gains occurred in leisure and hospitality; 5,200 in mining and construction; 4,800 in trade, transportation and utilities; and 4,700 in administrative, support, and waste services.

Vital records scam The Tennessee Department of Health issued a warning last week about a potential scam that is making the rounds in Tennessee. Reports have been turned in to the department that someone claiming to be a Health Department Vital Records employee is calling households seeking citizens to confirm important personal information such as birth certificate information. The Commissioner of Health said the Office of Vital Records does not send employees to homes and issued the following tips to help protect against scammers: Be wary of anyone who shows up at your home or calls you claiming to be with the government and asking for identifying information. Although U.S. Census workers may visit your home or call within the next few months to obtain information for the 2010 Census, employees from other federal agencies usually will not.

Tea party powered by enthusiasm By Kristen Hicks Amidst thunderstorms and threats of area flooding, the eighth annual Freed-Hardeman University Associates’ Victorian Tea Party still saw success this past Saturday, May 1. The usual location of the Hardeman House had to be changed for the very first time to the Henderson Church of Christ building, which is just across the street. Loyal guests were prepared for the change of venue. As previous guest and out-of-towner Katherine Bennett sent word, “My girls and I are coming, rain or shine!” With tea tables set up in the lovely Commons area, the first group of guests arrived at the scene right as the electricity went out. Susan Edmonds commented afterwards that, “Everything seemed to go smoothly and the nopower thing just seemed to transport us back to Victorian times.” Luckily, enough hot tea had just been brewed to last the guests until the electricity returned halfway through the tea party. Guests were served tea party fare on three-tiered plate stands entwined with floral greenery and each topped with a small pastel butterfly. The food served at the 2010 Victorian Tea Party included Savory Cucumber Sandwiches, Spicy Cheddar Pimento Sandwiches, White Chocolate Cherry Scones with Chocolate Cream and Cherry Butter, Chocolate Raspberry Tassies, Mini Spongecakes with Jasmine Tea Buttercream, Rosemary Parmesan Hearts, and Lemon Turnovers, which were accented with fresh strawberries and grapes. The two teas chosen for this year were Madame Butterfly Jasmine, which is “simply the best green tea with a

heavenly jasmine fragrance,” according to Debbie McLaughlin, cochair of this year’s tea party. The steering committee’s overwhelming response to this tea inspired the serendipitous butterfly theme for this year’s tea party. McLaughlin describes the second tea, Norfolk Blend, as a “robust black tea blend perfect for a morning wake-up call or a lovely afternoon tea party.” A refreshing lemonade was also served. The smallest guests were still able to giddily enjoy dressing up in princess costumes, provided by Becky Welch. Ashley Hardin made sure that the little ladies had an appropriate place to have their picture taken by setting up a small wicker table and chairs and hanging a fanciful canopy above it. Beribboned butterfly wands, prepared by Rhonda Thompson, and paper doll design were also popular areas for the little girls. “We are making precious memories,” noted Dwina Willis, who always attends the tea party with her daughter, Becky, and granddaughter, Laura Beth. These precious memories were recorded this year by FHU’s Jud Davis, who will soon be uploading the portrait and candid pictures to http://photos.fhu.edu for purchase. The adult guests appreciated learning a new needlework at Laurel Sewell and Sasha Gott’s candlewicking venue, which is a form of whiteon-white embroidery. Committee member Karen Walker had been the mastermind behind this venue but could not attend the tea party due to recent back surgery. Another beautiful venue was set up by Margaret Payne and featured various tea accoutrements for the purpose of showing guests the proper way to prepare and serve hot tea.

Also at this venue was an ingenious lamp constructed of a teapot topped with teacups and saucers, a show of the appreciation of tea culture. Adapted from Country Living magazine, Laurel Sewell’s creation inspired others to make their own at home; her instructions were included in the souvenir program. Guests browsed the offerings of the Tea Boutique and many took home colorful teapots, handmade fabric tea cozies, dainty teapot bead jewelry, packaged food items, and various other tea accoutrements to continue their own tea party at home. One guest reported later that, after a tornado siren woke her up early Sunday morning, she was not able to go back to sleep. Instead, she enjoyed reliving the events of that day’s tea party, complete with some of the delicious rosemary parmesan hearts, in the middle of the night. Besides a change in venue, this year held another first in that a Silent Auction was set up to offer the ladies the chance to bid on an excellent gift basket, thanks to Valeria Pitoni. The gift basket contained various handmade products from Stillwaters Farm and a gift certificate for a one-night stay at The Cottage at Stillwaters Farm, located here in Chester County. “This day would not have been possible without the help of many, many people,” says Kristen Hicks, co-chair of this year’s tea party. “We had a great steering committee, lots of volunteers donating ingredients and making all of the wonderful food at ‘cooking parties’ leading up to the day of the tea party. There were so many hard-working Associates moving tables and chairs, washing dishes, decorating, and cleaning up. Husbands

We had some volunteer students from FHU also who helped set up, serve, and clean up. I can’t even imagine having this event without all of these volunteers. We just couldn’t do it.” Sponsors for this event were Chester County Bank, Dr. Larry Bloomingburg, FHU Bible Bookstore/University Store, Mary Kay (Susan Edmonds), The Peoples Bank, Lookin’ Good/A-1 Realty, Hester Publications, No Xcuse Fitness, Stillwaters Farm, Bramblett Group, Shackelford Funeral Directors (Casey Chapel), Happy Kids Consignment Shoppe, Radio Shack, and Patricia Jones, Republican Nominee for Chester County Mayor. Hicks added, “Our corporate sponsors and individual patrons are an integral part of our success every year, too. All of our profits go toward FHU student scholarships and we are blessed that so many people have the same vision as we do.”

Rosemary Parmesan Hearts Makes approx. 11 dozen small hearts Ingredients: 2 c. all-purpose flour ½ tsp. baking powder 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary ¾ c. (1 ½ sticks) salted butter ¾ c. Parmesan cheese, finely grated (not powdered) 2 egg yolks Cooking Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour and baking powder together and cut in the butter until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Add the Parmesan, rosemary, and egg yolks. Continue working the dough until it forms a ball. This can all be done in a food processor. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8” thick and cut out with a small heart cookie cutter. Reroll the remaining dough and continue cutting out hearts until the dough has all been used. Place the hearts onto baking stones, if possible, or baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake approximately 10 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire rack and store in airtight container.

Officials tour Library, expansion proposed City and County officials toured the Chester County Library Thursday, and were mostly upbeat about a proposed expansion of the 10-year-old facility. A presentation by librarian Nancy Canada explained the many successful and well-attended programs now offered by the library. However, Canada also stressed how crowded the facility becomes when a large number of children attend the programs. She proposed that officials explore the possibility of expanding the facility with a 20’

by 30’ addition on the west side of the building. Prior to the construction of the present facility, on East Main adjacent to the Board of Education building, the library was housed in a much smaller building downtown with a roof which Canada pointed out leaked often damaging the materials. Canada suggested that funding such an addition could come from a variety of sources such as state grants, USDA grants as part of the Stimulus Program, and a small amount left over from the original construction

which is currently drawing interest. Also, Canada looked into a grant from a charitable trust but was not encouraged by the initial reaction. Despite extremely tight budgets for the local governing bodies, officials seemed upbeat to the possibility of making this happen. Some even suggested that long-range needs be brought into the discussion. “What’s on your wish list?” said Henderson councilman Keith Smith. “Fifteen years out, what do you need?”

Burnett honored for lifetime achievements The Tennessee Health Care Association (THCA) has named Lushios Burnett Jr., a patient at Chester County Nursing Home, to its annual Who’s Who in Tennessee Nursing Homes. Honorees in this year’s Who’s Who recognition program, themed “The Winners’ Circle,” include athletes, entertainers, educators and other individuals living in THCA member nursing homes statewide.

During his service, he remembers his ship being shot at off the Japanese islands and visiting Hiroshima shortly after

LUSHIOS BURNETT JR. the atomic bombs had been dropped. Burnett will receive a Who’s Who certificate of recognition during National Nursing Home Week May 9-15, an event celebrating the fundamen-

tal role nursing homes play in the continuum of long-term care. His profile will also be featured on THCA’s Web site, www.thca.org. “Each year, a select group of patients at THCA

member facilities is called forward to accept nomination to Who’s Who in Tennessee Nursing Homes,” said THCA Executive Director Ron Taylor. “These patients truly have made a difference through accomplishments in their careers and contributions to their families, country and communities. It is a privilege to welcome them to The Winners’ Circle.” Since 1983, the Who’s Who in Tennessee Nursing Homes program has honored more than 1,500 outstanding individuals living in member facilities of THCA.

Reward offered in eagle shooting The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency are investigating the shooting of a bald eagle in the Reelfoot area of Lake County. A reward of up to $3,300 is offered to anyone for information leading to a conviction of the person or persons responsible for shooting the eagle. The reward is provided from contributions by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and the Mid-South Raptor Center. The eagle was discovered in Lake County approximately five miles north of Tiptonville, close to the Mississippi River. The area is near the intersection of State Highway 22 and Cates Landing - New Markham Road. An examination by a veterinarian revealed that the eagle was shot with a rifle between the dates of March 24 and March 26. Due to the extent of the injuries, the eagle would not have been able to fly very far from where it had been shot. The eagle had part of its right wing amputated and is currently undergoing rehabilitation at the Mid-South Raptor Center. This mature bald eagle sporting a familiar white head and tail will not fly again. Bald eagles are protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, both federal wildlife statutes. Violations of these statutes carry maximum criminal penalties of up to $100,000 and/or one year in federal prison. Anyone with information concerning this eagle is asked to call Special Agent Matthew Bendele with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Office of Law Enforcement in Memphis at (901) 380-3577 or Lake County Wildlife Officer Rob Dougherty with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency at (800) 372-3928.

Cross named “Heart of the Lion” Freed-Hardeman women’s basketball player Jana Cross already has a laundry list of honors and awards to her credit, and she added one more before graduation by receiving the Charlie Smith Heart of a Lion Award. The Charlie Smith Heart of a Lion Award was established in 2004 in honor of Charlie Smith, a long-time former coach and athletic director at FHU. The award is given to the senior student-athlete who demonstrates courage, determination, hard work, exemplary performance, and service to others during his or her career at FHU. The recipient is chosen by the athletic department staff. “Jana Cross is an All American athlete who has given everything she has to her team and her school during the past four years,” said FHU athletic director Mike McCutchen. “It has been an honor to watch her play and she has been an inspiration to people of all ages. If you know Jana, you cannot help but be a fan. No one is more deserving of this award.” Cross is the fourth women’s basketball player to receive the award, join-

ing Jessica Woodard (2004), Hannah Wood (2006) and Megan Thompson (2008) as the winners from that program. “Jana has been a great ambassador for FreedHardeman University and our basketball program,” said FHU head coach Dale Neal. “Her ability and work ethic have resulted in her being recognized and honored in numerous ways during four years as a Lady Lion. The criteria for the Heart of a Lion award defines Jana Cross. It is impressive to see an athlete of Jana’s ability maintain the level of humility that she exhibits.” During her career at Freed-Hardeman, Cross was a four-time NAIA AllAmerican and the WBCA/State Farm NAIA Player of the Year in 2009. Her 29-point, 11-rebound performance in the TranSouth Conference Championship in 2010 led the Lady Lions to their first conference title in four years in an upset over eventual national champions. She finished her career as the program’s secondleading all-time scorer with 2,222 points.

CC softball gets big win over SS Chester County worked out of a bases loaded jam in the fifth inning, then scored three insurance tallies in the final frame to beat South Side 6-2 May 5 in the second round of the District 14-AA girls softball tournament. The win sends CCHS to the winners’ bracket final which was to be played Monday at Eaglette Field. However, damp conditions forced the event to be pushed back at least one day. In the win over South Side, Kamara Trice started on the mound for CCHS, with Sammi Jo Ivy coming on in relief in the second inning. Ivy worked two innings before giving way to Bailey Gately in the fifth. By then the Eaglettes had taken a 3-2 lead. Ivy inherited a tough situation in the second inning, but got a pop-up and fielder’s choice to end the threat. She hit a batter leading off the third and that runner eventually scored. Two “swinging” bunts, plus a sacrifice bunt that was turned into a hit, loaded the sacks once again for the Lady Hawks in the fifth inning. Gately got a strikeout for the first out, then a ground ball hit to second baseman Cynthia Beene resulted in a force out at home, and the final out came on another ground ball. With the momentum now in their favor, the Eaglettes immediately took the lead on consecutive two-out doubles by

In the seventh, Beene singled with one out, and Trice blasted a home run over the leftfield fence for two more runs. A walk, fielder’s choice, and double by Logan McEarl added yet another run. Gately then retired South Side in order in the bottom of the seventh to get the save. Jessica Weeks had an RBI single in the second inning for CCHS. In their first tournament game, CCHS jumped all over Bolivar in winning 13-0 May 4. Trice pitched the victory. Chester County had only six hits in the blowout, but benefited from five Lady Tigers errors. Gately and Julia Weeks each had doubles.

Lions’ baseball season ends in TSAC tournament Lyon College used a seven-run second inning to build a big cushion that the Freed-Hardeman Lions could not overcome, as FHU’s baseball season ended with a 12-5 loss to the Scots in an elimination game at the TranSouth Conference tournament on Tuesday afternoon. Freed-Hardeman’s season ends at 33-24 under first-year head coach Jonathan Estes. Robert Prieto led off

game with a double down the left field line and came around to score on a twoout single by Labrada. Lyon answered in the bottom of the first after Cory Ford singled to lead off the inning and eventually scored on a sacrifice fly by Evan Segler. Lyon loaded bases with no one out in bottom of second off of Gage Franklin (4-5), but the freshman appeared to be on the verge of escaping

the jam with one run as he retired the next two batters - one on a sacrifice fly - and had two strikes on Ford before he lined a triple into the left-center gap to score two more runs. Zac Wallace followed with a single to bring home Ford and end Franklin’s day. Trae Luttrell entered in relief but Lyon’s bats stayed hot, ripping three straight hits off of the sen-

ior before he struck out Kody Pinson to get FHU out of the inning trailing 81. Leamond Arthur finished one double shy of tying the program’s single season record of 22, set by Pat O’Sullivan in 1998. Brian Bullard finished his career as the program’s all-time RBI leader with 188 and was two home runs away (32) from tying the career home run mark.

Union gets Sheffield for soccer Chester County High School senior Nicole Sheffield signed last week to play soccer at Union University. Sheffield is believed the soccer player from CCHS to sign with a college since the program’s inception more

than a decade ago. “We’re excited about Nicole being a part of our program,” said Union head coach Brandon Boylan. “First, she fits in with our university and the students we want. As for on the field, Nicole is a tough

defender, and has the potential to be an outstanding player at Union.” Sheffield played sweeper and was the team captain at CCHS. “She was the anchor of our defense,” said CCHS head coach Jason Judd.

Three added to Lions’ “pride” Freed-Hardeman University has added three more high school stars to its recruiting class for next season. They are Quintin Lee of Ripley, Michael Tomlin of Jackson, and Ben Meis of Memphis. Lee, a 5-foot-11 point guard, prepped at Ripley High School for Coach Ralph Turner where he posted an outstanding senior season, averaging 20.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game on his way to being named District 13-AA MVP.

He was also named alldistrict tournament and all-region and played in the Golden Circle All-Star Game. He was also an all-district selection following his junior season and played AAU with the Midstate Ballerz in the summer. “Quintin is a true point guard with a great feel for making those he plays with better,” said FHU head coach Jason Shelton. “His three-point shooting ability allows him to be able to break down the

defense off the dribble. His high school coaches have prepared him to be a contributor right away at the college level.” Lee is the son of Curtis and Wanda Lee. Tomlin, a 6-foot-6 forward, prepped at North Side High School for Coach Tony Brown, where he averaged 10 points, six rebounds and four blocks per game in his senior season, which was just his second year of organized basketball.

By Kim Poston Field Day was a blast at East Chester! We were so thankful for the sunny weather on Friday for our Field Day. We enjoyed lots of great activities like tugof-war, sack races, and inflatables. However, I think that all of the children will agree that the visit from the fire truck was the favorite of the day. East Chester students enjoyed a “spray” for cooling off. The smiles and shouts of glee were heard from grades three all the way down to pre-k. We want to thank the firemen for coming and making our day wonderful! Our Kindergarten students have been working very hard on their program. The Kindergarten Awards program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Thursday night (May 13) at Williams Auditorium. I hope all family and friends will be able to attend. You will be in for

a treat! Ms. Jennifer’s kindergarten class had a few surprises in their room this week. They have been studying insects. They have also been waiting for caterpillars to turn into butterflies. It finally happened and they actually got to see a few come out of the chrysalis. First grade students are completing their last story on Ben Franklin. They are working on story problems during math as they prepare to move on to second grade. Second grade students are looking forward to their field trip on Friday. They will be visiting several places in town that serve our community. We

hope to visit Clayton Bank, the Chester County Independent, the Chester County Court House, the Chester County Library, and the police station. Third graders also had a field trip this week. They visited the Milan Agriculture Museum. They learned about tools from the past. Farming tools were a lot of hard work. Third graders are also doing their Tennessee Research projects this week. Tennessee is a great state and third

Third grade students want to thank the PTO for the awesome pizza party! Fourth grade will be fun but our memories from East Chester will be forever. Library News: Students in the 50 point club are Jusino Prather, Lucy Johnson, Savannah Holmes, River Clayton, Malaysia Fisher, Natalie Leatherwood, Amaya Mickens, Emilee Weaver, Camryn Sharrow, Abigail Rees, and Dalton Cole.
