Man survives Great Moudini trick A former Chester County resident is fortunate to be alive after a stunt gone wrong. Michael Anthony Mooney, who performs magic and other forms of entertainment under the name The Great Moudini, was dragged several hundred feet down the front stretch of Atlanta Motor Speedway on June 2. Mooney was attempting a trick in which he is blind-folded and has only a few seconds to escape from a special pair of handcuffs which are chained to a racecar which soon speeds away. Unfortunately Mooney only got one cuff removed and suffered severe injuries as the race car sped away as planned. Mooney is now mostly recovered from the mishap which he

had successfully performed twice before at the Speedway’s Thursday Thunder short track series. “The more dangerous the trick, the more tickets are sold,” said Mooney. “Some people are there hoping you will get hurt. It’s like if you do something good, nobody ever hears about it.” Mooney’s exploits can be seen online on YouTube or at MooneyEntertainent.com, and will soon be featured on television shows on True TV’s 20 Most Shocking Videos, as well as on Comedy Central. Mooney was born in Henderson, but moved to Jackson as a child. He attended school at South Side and was

reared in Pinson at Youth Town. He bills himself now as a magician/stunt man, taking his magic to the extreme with motorcycle stunts, car stunts, and once dangled from a helicopter at the Mid-South Fair in Memphis. He performed magic at parties for about 15 years before moving into the more dangerous stuff. A NASCAR racing fan, he got to know some of the track personnel in Atlanta, and after demonstrating some of his tricks, they put him in front of an audience. After growing up in foster care, Mooney now considers himself blessed and often talks at churches giving his testimony of letting the Lord lead where he should go in life.

Bonds, charges reduced for suspects Some bonds and charges were reduced, and some dropped altogether after hearings in Chester County General Sessions Court Friday. Bond for William Kenny Cohen, 50, of Glendale Road, was reduced to $75,000, and his case was waived to action of the Grand Jury. Cohen, charged with two counts of rape of a child, was ordered to have no contact with the victim or victim’s family.

Gary Hart, 48, of Frankie Lane, had his charges reduced following a preliminary hearing before Judge Larry McKenzie. Hart, originally charged with attempted first degree murder, had his charges dropped to possession of a weapon with attempt to go armed, vandalism, and animal cruelty. His bond was reduced to $10,000, and he was ordered to have no contact with his brother Jerry Hart, one of the alleged victims in the case.

News from the City

By Gloria Holiday Hello to everyone! I hope you had a wonderful week. To everyone that was asking about the article and why it was not in the paper. The reason is most of the family and I was in Memphis at the hospital with my mother’s sister, Betty. She fell and broke her hip, and our brother, Dexter, was in the hospital also. Today and always I can say that God is good all the time; both of them are doing great. Monday, Aug. 22, was the first day of pre-school for Chester County Head Start. There are 60 students. For the most of them, it was their first time been away from mom or dad. This is a very big step for these little people. Can any of you remember your first day in school? I can. Ms. Mary Trice was

my first-grade teacher and I was crying for mother because I did not want to stay. Ms. Trice picked me up and sat me in her lap, and then she hugged me. Not only that, but in a very sweet soft voice she told me “it is all right, don’t cry,” and 51 years later I still remember how kind she was to me. Isn’t it amazing how you remember your first teacher. Those seniors were at it again, going all the way to Franklin and had the audacity to come home with the gold. The city would like to congratulate the following seniors that participated in the Senior Olympic Games: Tylene Seaton, Robert Jones, Georgia Phillips, Len Carter and Bob Covitz. Mark your calendar for Sept. 10, from 8 a.m. until noon, West Tennessee Healthcare will be offering free screenings during the West Tennessee Health Fair at the Carl Perkins Civic Center in Jackson. The screenings are free and will include blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, bone density for people ages 50 and above, vision, foot screenings and body mass index. They are asking you to fast at least

four hours before having your blood work done. I hope to see you there at the fair. For more information about the Health Fair, call Kay Cranford at 731541-4907. Fryers Point Church will begin revival services at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 28, with pastor Tommie Woods and Cool Springs M.B. Church as their special guest. The services will begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 31, Rev. Moore Pastor of Missionary Outreach from Jackson; Thursday, Sept. 1, Rev. Darnell Pastor of Tillman Chapel in Henderson; and Friday, Sept. 2, Rev. James Arnold Pastor of New Hope M.B in Decaturville. The public is invited to come and be blessed. On Aug. 27, Larry Kelly and Vivian Kelly said “I DO” 17 years ago. Happy anniversary, keep the Honey in the Moon and may you have many more too come. Congratulations to Taneshia Thomas as she graduated on Saturday, Aug. 20, with a Practical Nursing Degree. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas and the granddaughter of Margie

Burton. Congratulations to Tyron and Jessica Hall on the birth of their new baby girl, Layla S. Hall, on Aug. 9. She weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces and was 20 inches long. May the Lord keep on blessing you. On the prayer list this week: Betty Bass Williams, Dexter Brown, John Riley Barham, Janis Barham, Vircie Mae Massengill, Juanita Canada, Quinten Cawthon, Maizell Barnes, Jimmy Thomas and Nina M. Ross, Robert Freeman, Charles Stovall and wife. Pray for our children, teachers, families, the men and women that are serving our country, and the incarcerated. Remember to patronize with our local businesses here in town; let’s try to support our own as much as we can. If you live in the city of Henderson and have news about your family, birthday, anniversary, announcements, and things happening in the city, I need to hear from you. Call me at 989-1907 and leave your message or you may email me at gloria__holiday@msn.com. Have a great week!

Doesn’t matter if it’s a cake or a pie, just don’t underestimate cheesecake I love cheesecake. It doesn’t matter if I’m cooking it or eating, but the fact is that I enjoy it. Over the years, I’ve used several recipes. One called for too much flour, and it tasted dry. I have another that’s very good, but it’s not a traditional cheesecake; it’s almost more of an icebox pie. I typically stick to plain cheesecake, and I haven’t ventured into swirls, chocolate or turtle varieties. While I enjoy those, a basic cheesecake with a strawberry or cherry topping always wins. One day, I was browsing a magazine for ideas when I came across a delicious-looking cheesecake with a homemade chocolate crust. I tore out my inspiration recipe and set it aside to use when we had company or a special event. When we had weekend guests, I pulled out my new recipe and set to work. Unfortunately, I hadn’t read through the entire recipe to see that it filled an entire 13x9 cake pan. In my estimate, four people shouldn’t be able to consume an entire cake pan full of cheesecake in a weekend, so I needed to improvise. I cut the recipe in half, tweaked a few things, and

then I decided that a 9x9 pan would work much better. Since I improvised, I played around with the cooking time a bit, but I think I’ve developed a time that will work with most ovens. Remember oven temperatures may vary, so keep an eye on your cheesecake to avoid overcooking. If the center hasn’t set after an hour in the oven, increase time by five to 10 minute increments. It will eventually set and begin to brown. Remove from the oven before the top browns fully. Making a cookie crumb crust for your cheesecake shouldn’t be difficult, especially since this crust doesn’t even need sides. The easiest way to crush the chocolate cookies is to place them in the food processor and pulse until they are finely crushed. Transfer crumbs to a small bowl and drizzle melted butter over the top, using hands to work butter

through the crumbs until moist and easy to mold into bottom of baking pan. You don’t have to use all the butter. If crumbs are moist and there is still butter remaining, don’t allow it to pool or become soggy. You want a firm, crunchy crust; not a hard, crystallized one. Save the cherry filling until you’re ready to serve your cheesecake. It’s best to add it just before serving. Cherry is my favorite, but blueberry pie filling would also be great. If you’re more of a chocolate fan, skip the fruit filling and drizzle your favorite chocolate syrup over the top – or try a caramel drizzle. Be creative; this is your pie, uh, cake – er, cheesecake – so enjoy! Email your favorite or best recipes to mdunbar@chestercountyindependent.com or mail them to Chester County Independent c/o Mary Dunbar, P.O. Box 306, Henderson, TN 38340.

Sweet 1,041!” I’m sure you could have heard her scream to my house! The announcer asked how many times she had called, her reply was “only once.” His reply, “I hope you know everyone listening right now hates you.” Amber said, “I’m so sorry,” and burst out laughing and started squealing. Hope she and her friends had a great night. Did you ever have a day where you just should have stayed in bed? Saturday was one of those for me. My car had problems, cost a lot to fix it, I liked about four to five car links having my yard mowed and the belt fell off. I then started working, trying to clear my carport from the storm back in the spring. I had an armful of wood, small pieces but a lot of it. I was carrying it to put in a bucket that I would then carry to my shed. Before I could get the wood lowered into the bucket, four or five pieces fell and landed on my toes. You have heard the expression, “I saw stars,” well I

did! I never stopped working. When I finally got to the shed, the key was missing. That’s it… time for a break. I went in the house and took off my shoes. The skin was torn off my toe, once I got the dirt off, it was swollen twice its size and totally purple! I’m still limping around. Birthday wishes to Seneca Deck, Megan Fowler and Brandon Lewis on Aug. 17; Austin Springer on Aug. 18; Justin Keen on Aug. 19; Joey Russell and Terry Moody on Aug. 20; Junior Miller, Erica Franks and James A. Russell on Aug. 21; Noah Price and Janet Robinson on Aug. 24; Peggy Record on Aug. 25; Lessie Bullman on Aug. 26; Shane Brown, Ethan Kinchen and Hannah Hilton on Aug. 28; Kendyl Kinchen on Aug. 29; and Dude Russell, Briget Turner and Matthew Bodiford on Aug. 31. Happy anniversary to Larry and Chrissy Busby on Aug. 21; Chuck and Karen Davis on Aug. 25; Austin and Holly Springer on Aug. 28; Rick and Lori Babin on Aug. 29; and Amy and Kevin Faulkner on Aug. 31.

If you have news to share, call 989-7523. As the holidays will soon be approaching, remember to book the community center early because it fills quickly at that time of year. Thought for the week: Never forget, that if you’re headed in the wrong direction, God allows U-turns. Have a great week everyone!

Pictured left to right are Miss Chester County Debbie Bridges, Representative Edward Bailey, Judge Hubert Seaton, Mayor W.E. Burkhead, Rev. Elmer Weaver and D. Fenimore.

Only Yesterday “Citizens give 135 pints of blood” From the files of the Chester County Independent August 28, 1941 “Johnny Get Your Gun! Squirrel Season Approaches” Brunswick stew, with squirrel, one of the South's most popular delicacies, will soon be in order in these parts. For squirrel season opens here next Monday, Sept. 1, and from all appearances, there'll be plenty of 'em and we hope – plenty of stew! The season will be open four months, and the daily bag is limited to 10. “Only Eight Bales Of Cotton Ginned” Cotton is coming into Henderson slowly, only eight bales being ginned by the Henderson Gin Company during the past week. The Wamble Gin, which is being remodeled, is expected to be ready for ginning by the end of this week. John L. Weeks of the Henderson Gin Company said that cotton received so far had been very good quality, and that 16 ¼ cents was being paid for 15-16 inch middling on Wednesday, and seed were selling at $42 per ton. “Team Must Depend On Speed – Not Power” After a week's conditioning, football practice at Chester County High School opened in earnest Monday, with about 42 candidates out for the team. With only seven lettermen remaining, prospects are not so favorable, Coach James Williams said. All the men out are small, averaging about 135 pounds, and if a winning combination can be developed, it will have to come through speed, and not power, he said. Lettermen returning to the field include Ray Lawson, quarterback; James Cloud, guard; William Barrett, half-back; Blaine Mosier, center; James Reddin, tackle; Dudley Travis, tackle; and “Chief” Freeman, guard.

Questions and answers from UT Extension By J. Brian Signaigo UT Extension Agent III

Can I plant Bermuda grass in my lawn this time of year? Of course, the answer is yes, you can now but it has little chance of developing an adequate root system between now and fall to “save” enough nutrients for spring growth. So the bottom line is that now is not the time to plant Bermuda seed. You can, however, sod with Bermuda (and other warm season grass sod) at this time – just make sure you supply adequate water after placement to “seal” the sod to the earth. What grass can I plant under my trees in the shade? All plants need some sunlight to grow to its potential – pure and simple. It’s true that some grasses (and other plants)

are more shade tolerant that others, but again, all plants need some sunlight. An excellent publication is available on the web at utextension.tennessee.ed u entitled Managing Trees and Turfgrasses, publication No. SP 535. If you need/want me to visit, give me a call. What is the web site for UT Extension publications? As mentioned earlier, the web address for the UT Extension publications is utextension.tennessee.edu. Take a few minutes and browse through the site and see what’s available – many are available either for home printing or some are for purchase as hard copy. Either way, it’s great info! How do I get rid of these weeds in my pond? Great question because it

seems that this time of year is when they flourish. The first and most important step in any successful weed control program is correct weed identification. Second, put the correct herbicide where it needs to go – on the weed itself or sprinkled in the pond or injected under the surface. It’s just not real simple to control some of this aquatic vegetation. I feel we are fortunate that our regional UT Extension Fish and Pond specialist has an on-going demonstration here in Chester County. We’re seeing some real beneficial results that will be helpful for pond weed control recommendations. Details about 4-H programs coming next week! Call UT Extension at 9892103 with your questions!

Seasons change Keeping the Faith By Ronnie McBrayer

After four years of marriage, we finally took a vacation – together

After four years of marriage and more than a year of dating before that, my husband and I finally took a vacation together last week. Sure, we’ve gone places and taken trips together, and also apart; we even spent Valentine’s Day weekend in Berlin, Germany, but we’ve never planned a vacation of more than a couple of days – until this year. We both enjoy traveling, but I was beginning to think that we’d never coordinate our lives and plans to include taking a trip together, just the two of us. Last year, Chris was going to school near Denver, Colo., and I was living here in Henderson. My mother and I took two weeks off and drove to Colorado. We visited wineries along the way and had a fun trip to and from Denver together. While Chris was in school, Mom and I went to museums and parks, and when he got out of school in the afternoon, we met up to go to the aquarium or hang out. During the weekends, we took trips to the Estes Park Scottish Festival, Colorado Springs, Pike’s Peak, all kinds of interesting three-day excursions, but they were trips and visits, not relaxing vacations. My mother and I enjoyed a relaxing vacation together, but since Chris was in school the majority of the time, I don’t count it as a vacation with him. It’s hard to vacation together when one person has to go to bed in time to get up for school. That severely limits the places the “vacationers” can go. Once, Chris and I drove to northern Idaho with one of his Army buddies, his buddy’s parents and niece. All six of us were packed into an extended cab truck, and we drove 24 hours straight through from Winfield, Kan., to Priest River, Idaho – and

back again. We didn’t stop at Yellowstone or Little Big Horn or anything. We barely stopped to eat. After a brief visit with some friends, we turned around and made the drive home to Henderson, stopping in Kansas only long enough to pick up Chris’ sister. That Idaho trip was exhausting. Chris’ buddy’s mother and I wanted to stop and go sightseeing, but the guys had a singleminded determination that we weren’t going to stop until we got to our friends’ house. I was cramped, bored, and grumpy the entire truck ride. On the way back, we left the parents and niece in Idaho to visit, so at least I had the whole backseat to stretch out in and get comfortable. The truck was a standard, and neither Chris nor I could help drive, so we had to stop once for the night. Much to my chagrin, we pulled into a parking lot to sleep, not a motel, no showers or soft mattress, just a parking lot with me in the backseat and two snoring guys in the front. When Chris and I were in Germany, we wanted to travel, but it rarely happened. I’m not sure if it was the snowy winter or his unit’s lack of organization or just an inability to plan on our part, but we spent most of the time on post. Not long before I was scheduled to move back to the U.S., I laid down my feelings: we had to take a trip – somewhere, anywhere – before I left. I went to the library and checked out a guidebook to Germany, and we flipped through it together. I think we picked our destination by opening the book and seeing what city it opened to, and we made a plan to fly to Berlin for Valentine’s Day weekend. I was proud of us; we actually booked our hotel and flight and made a tentative plan of exploration.

On our first afternoon there, we took a wrong turn and wandered through the residential areas for several hours. It wasn’t on our agenda, but it was a memorable adventure. We even found a Schnitzelkönig (i.e. Schnitzel King) that served a huge “Texas schnitzel” for lunch. The following day, I was nearly overcome by hypothermia at the zoo, but we had a wonderful German adventure together. Other than those trips, our travels together have mostly included visiting relatives and overnight trips to Nashville or Memphis. Since Chris was stationed outside the U.S. for many years, visiting his relatives is important to him, but only traveling together to spend time with other people in Kansas isn’t always a fun and relaxing trip. While I love my in-laws, these visits often involve a great deal of stress, especially if one family member feels that we haven’t spent enough time with him or her. Chris finished school and got settled back at home in April, and I told him that we needed to take a trip with just the two of us this year. I explained that I didn’t want to slight his family, but as a young, married couple, we need time to travel and explore our own interests also. After much discussion of where

to go and what we could afford, we decided to take a cruise to the Bahamas. I’ve cruised once before with some friends from college, but this was Chris’ first time on a huge ship. We loved the all-inclusive atmosphere. We didn’t have to find a hotel room or figure out where to eat – the cruise did all that for us. We didn’t have to rent a car. Shows and nightlife were included. We had a swimming pool onboard, and when we were in port, we could get off the ship and practically step right into the ocean. It was a great first vacation, and not only that, we had a day at sea where we had nothing to worry about except relaxing and enjoying our vacation. If I’m on a trip, I usually feel badly about sleeping late because that wastes the time I have to see as many places as possible, but on a ship at sea, you don’t have to worry about that. I didn’t feel the least bit upset that I slept until noon during our day at sea. Now that we’ve figured out that vacationing together can actually be fun and relaxing, I have a feeling we won’t wait another four years to take a vacation. We’re still deciding between an Alaskan cruise, Scotland, Canada, or going back to Germany and actually seeing more of the country than we saw when we lived there. I can’t wait!

I was told some decades ago that my life would pass like the seasons of the year. With lifeexpectancy hovering at roughly around 80 years, my wise counselor said that we can divide our lives into four seasons of 20 years each. The first 20 years of life is spring. Life is new and young. Flowers bloom and the grass is green. Everything is just beginning – childhood, adolescence, young adulthood. In the spring we begin to plant the seeds that in time will grow, bloom, and eventually be harvested. The entire year – all other seasons – lay out before us, and we want to get to them as quickly as we can. The next 20 years compose summer. The days are long and warm. We have time to work, love, and play. The seeds we planted in the spring, we now cultivate, water, and fertilize. And we plant many, many, more seeds. Everything is growing, sometimes productively, and sometimes in a weedy, tangled mess. We fight floods and drought, good times and bad, working with the soil and farm that is uniquely ours. The third season of the year/life, of course, is autumn, the great time of harvest. In our forties and fifties and stretching into our sixties, we begin to reap what we have sown. Our children become adults, and move toward the summer of their own lives. Our careers and ideas about life reach maturity. The colors begin to change, on top of our heads and on our chins. Traditionally, autumn is the most productive time of our lives, the “prime of life.” Maybe we should think of the prime of life as Robert Raines defines it; prime as in prime rib. “Everybody is eating off of me,” he said. In autumn we attempt to raise our children, for who we are too out-ofstep, and try to relate to parents for who we are too radical, all while working toward a harvest that simply will not wait. There is a lot to do, and balancing it all is not always easy. In some cases, the harvest

season becomes so overwhelming that people leave more to rot in the field that they take into the barn. Finally, there is the winter, the last 20 or so years of our lives. There are still crops to harvest, and there are still a few seeds to plant, though not always in the big back yards or sprawling farms of life. We plant and cultivate in little flower pots and hanging baskets, the days much shorter. In the winter we pass along to others the planting seeds we have gathered from our own lives. It is that time of life when we prepare others for their seasons and for the lives they must live, giving away the tools and the provisions that once sustained us. Now, this analogy isn’t perfect and the seasons aren’t as compartmentalized as maybe I have made it sound, but neither is the weather or the seasons of the year. Sometimes it’s hot enough to get sunburn in December. Sometimes it snows on the 4th of July. Sometimes we harvest in February and plant in November. And it’s not always clear where people are in their lives. There are fast-learners and latebloomers; and you can be living in multiple seasons all at the same time. We cannot stop the movement of our lives, from growing older or moving from summer to winter. The issue at hand is not, “How do I stop the passage of time?” The issue is “What am I going to do with the time that I have?” Spring, summer, fall, and winter: Which ever season your life calls home, what are you going to do within that season of life, for time is always of the essence? Returning to one of my favorite quotes (and people), Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” Amen, Brother Twain; it’s time to get busy.

O’Neal Deming Sept. 28, 1924 – Dec. 2, 2010 Anderson O’Neal Deming was born in Chester County, the son of the late James Pruitt and Exie Deming. He honorably served the United States Navy in World War II from 1943 to 1946. O’Neal also served as sheriff of Chester County from 1954 to 1956.

‘Left out’ In November of 2007, it was reported that a 13-yearold committed suicide because of bullying. This is not the only example that has made it to the national headline news recently. How many more go unnoticed or unreported throughout the country and the world. Do you know anyone who feels left out, out of place, or just does not fit in? It may be for reasons different from bullying, such as physical features, social or intellectual abilities and interests, or traumatic change in one’s life. Whatever the reason, feeling left out or that we are not wanted can be a monumental and debilitating existence in our life. There is no easy answer to the feelings, that we are unloved, unwanted, or a square peg in a round hole. We all desire to fit in and to belong. It is unfortunate that we live in a world where evil does exist and many people live very comfortably within this sphere of influence. With the temptation to feel accepted and to belong so very strong, it may be our belief that we need to conform to the group we most seek to be accepted. Thus we set about to change the real me to be more like what we imagine is acceptable or necessary, a change that is superficial at best, and may be heading toward evil at worst. These behaviors seem OK… gossip, materialism, drug use, promiscuity, bullying, self-centeredness, dishonesty, etc., as so many engage in them. We need healthy pursuits and should treat each other as we ourselves expect to be treated (Matthew 7:21), as we seek fulfillment and happiness. Steven Spielberg once described himself as “always the kid who was chosen last or next to last in a game of pickup baseball.” Not that I speak in respect to lack, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content in it (Philippians 4:11). There are always healthy choices and help. This is Sunrise.

Icebergs in Henderson aren’t a typical sight during August, but at Teague-Noles 45 Auto Mart, a two-ton ice mountain slowly melts in the August sun. Jeff Teague and Joe Noles had the massive structure built on their front lot as part of their “Summer Meltdown Anniversary Sale.” Customers and visitors had an opportunity to guess when the iceberg will melt completely, and the winner will receive a two-night, threeday getaway in the city of their choice. Teague-Noles said they would furnish a twonight stay in a four star hotel and $300 spending money for the winner. In the meantime, the iceberg slowly, turns into a puddle because the August sun is unforgiving, even to an iceberg in Henderson.

Victory in opener puts charge in CCHS By James A. Webb Editor-in-Chief

Chester County High School is 1-0 the season in football for the first time in three seasons after holding off Adamsville 126 Friday at Eagle Stadium. CCHS, which lost the season opener the last two years to the Cardinals, scored touchdowns in the first and third periods to build a 12-0 lead, then stopped Adamsville’s potential game-winning drive in the final minutes that reached the Chester County two-yard line. “The kids did not want to lose to Adamsville three years in a row. They were determined to protect their goal line,” said Chester County’s firstyear head coach Michael Hodum. “We did let it get away one time, and it could have cost us the game.” Instead, the Eagle defense forced misplays and lost yardage on both third and fourth down. Rather than allow the tying and potentially winning score, CCHS took over for the final time at the 33-yard line, and ran out the clock as the packed house of Eagle

fans roared with approval. Forcing a three play and punt possession by the Cardinals to begin the contest, CCHS started a 12-play 78 yard drive for the game’s first points. Using a no-huddle offense, the Eagles converted once on third down and another time on fourth down. Key plays on the drive included a 46-yard run by Cameron Phelps on second down and 18 yards to go. Also, quarterback Austin Cavaness threw for 11 yards to Ryan Turner on fourth down. The touchdown was scored by wideout Jake Malero on a slant pattern to the middle. Cavaness hit Malero near the goal line and he held on as three Adamsville defenders wrestled him to the ground in the end zone. The point after, however, was wide left, a pattern that held up for each team throughout the contest. A sack by the Eagles’ Tanner Beecham help thwart the next Adamsville drive, as neither team threatened to score the remainder of the first half. Abandoning the nohuddle in the second half,

CCHS defeated the Cardinals 12-6 and face Hardin County in Savannah on Friday of this week. the Eagles again scored on their first possession of a half. Phelps broke free on an apparent 57-yard TD gallop on the first play from scrimmage in the third See CCHS, Page 2-B

CCHS travels to Hardin Friday Coming off its first season-opening victory in three years last week, Chester County hopes the good times continue this week when the Eagles travel to Savannah to take on Hardin County. The home team had a bye last week, and has not lost to Chester County in many years. Last year Hardin County won a hardfought 28-7 victory in a game which was much closer than the final score indi-

cates. “Hardin County is always a physical team,” asserted Hodum who inquired about how long the drought had been since a Chester County team had beaten the Tigers. “That could be a motivator for these kids. (But) they are believers now. They are going to work hard. We don’t want to go down there just to play a good game, we want to go win!” Kickoff in Savannah is 7 p.m.

Parkway went up 22-14 in the first overtime. Lott’s run brought CCJHS back within two, and Seth Lay ran in the tying points. In the final overtime, Lott’s six-yard run put the Junior Eagles up 28-22. Chester County’s defense then forced a fumble to end the game. The Junior Eagles rushed for 105 yards. Jarrett Wilson had 62 yards on 12 carries, and Chance Lott added 31 on six runs. Morris was 10 of 18 through the air for 214 yards and two scores. Ryan Stanfill caught six balls for 127 yards and one TD. Chester County’s offen-

sive line, nicknamed “the Great Wall of China,” is credited with much of the success. They are led by center Hunter Swope, plus Eric Arnold, Cole McEarl, Chase Knipper, Chase Johnson, and Tamarius Hollingsworth, the first sub in. In the McNairy County Jamboree Monday night, Chester County Junior High defeated Ramer 14-0 in two 10-minute periods. Braden Lott scored for CCJHS on an eight-yard run, and Morris teamed up with Wilson on a 12-yard scoring pass. Morris then passed to Stanfill for the two point conversion.

CCHS quarter. However, the Eagles were called for an infraction bringing the ball back. But eight plays later, Phelps carried defenders in the final two yards giving CCHS what at the time appeared to be a comfortable 12-0 lead. A 49-yard run by Zak Neary setup the Cardinals with a first and goal, and his teammate Dalton Plunk put six points on the board for Adamsville with a two-yard run, cutting the lead to 12-6. CCHS misfired miserably on its next series, and punted the ball back to the fired up Cardinals who took over on their 42yard line with 17 seconds left in the third period. After three first downs, Adamsville faced a fourth down situation with eight minutes left to play in regulation, but John Reed Odom got three yards to keep the drive going when he needed only two. Two minutes later the Cardinals made good on a third down play. With a first down at Chester County’s twoyard line with only five minutes left, the Cards ran twice getting to the CCHS two, but needing only one more yard for a first down. However, they were penalized five yards for illegal motion and after a timeout to set up their final plays, the Adamsville quarterback bobbled the snap. A wild scramble ensued, and the Cards recovered 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Fortunately for CCHS, Adamsville repeated itself on the next play, and Chester County took over on downs at its own 21. Shortly thereafter, Phelps and his offensive line thrilled the home crowd and essentially ended the game with a determined 32-yard run, the last 20 with Cardinal defenders hanging on for dear life. “That was a huge hurdle that was thrown at us, (but) the kids believed they were supposed to

win the ballgame,” said Hodum. He noted there was little strategy during the Cardinals’ final drive, what with the CCHS defense highly fatigued, just lots of determination. “Adamsville gave us a hard time, they were ready for the no huddle, really prepared for it,” Hodum continued. “We came out in the second half and did not run the no

huddle, and the kids did a good job of adjusting.” Phelps finished the night with 148 yards rushing on 13 carries and was named the Chester County Bank Game Ball Award Winner. Zach Malone’s eight tackles on defense and good effort on the offensive line earned him the Premier Manufacturing Player of the Week honors.

Cavaness completed five of 13 passes for 64 yards and one touchdown. Will Taylor punted the ball three times for a 30-yard average. Each team had 50 yards in penalties, and there was only one turnover, an interception by the Cardinals on a “hail Mary” pass by the Eagles in the waning seconds of the first half.

She is coming to the classroom each day this year to assist with various things as part of her Service Learning class. Mrs. Emily and the students are keeping her very busy! Second-graders have been reading Henry and Mudge, learning all about Henry and his family going camping. Please read with your child every night. It is the most important thing parents can do

to help children become better readers! In English, students have been finding the subject and predicates in a sentence and in math students have been working on adding and subtracting, fact families, and writing addition and subtraction sentences. Please work with your child on adding and subtracting facts every night! West Chester thirdgraders are working on place value and addition facts. Teachers have set the goal at 50 addition facts in three to five minutes. Please practice addition facts at home with

your child. Before you know it, they will be learning multiplication facts! Third-grade teacher Cathy Whitehead is heading up a school-wide environmentally friendly project that you can help us with at home. We are asking that you save any chip bags or juice pouches (minus the straw please) such as Capri-Sun or KoolAid and send them to school. The program is called Terracycle and not only do these items get recycled, but our school earns money for them! Thank you families for all you do!

Your child is learning valuable lessons each week and we love it when we see them putting into practice what they learn! This week in kindergarten, students began their reading series. They read the story, The Little School Bus. They learned about what a character is in a story. They also learned new sight words, “I” and “am.” They continued to learn colors and color words. Come check out their artwork in the hallway! You will find Clifford the Big Red Dog and Humpty Dumpty. Kindergarteners continued to practice procedures in the classroom. They also began going to the computer lab this week. Homework packs

started going home as well so be looking for those in your child’s backpack. First-graders will be reading Pig in a Wig this week and learning about words with the short “i” sound. They are preparing for their second spelling test which will be over short “i” words. They are also learning about pet care and being responsible. They have learned that all pets have needs such as shelter, love, exercise, food and water. Second-graders are working hard in math. They practiced addition and subtraction with problem solving and took their first chapter test last week. This week they are learning doubles facts and learning to add in any order. Second-graders read Exploring Space with

This past Friday, we had our first pep rally of the year to cheer our football team on to victory in their first game of the season. It was all good fun and appeared to have been a success as the Eagles won that night with a score of 12 to 6. Congratulations, Eagles! Keep up the good work! Seniors have some important deadlines coming up for the yearbook. All senior quotes are due this Friday.

By Misty Hall You know the school year is in full swing when the PTO membership drive begins! Parents please help your child raise money for our school by asking friends, family, coworkers and neighbors to join our PTO for just $3. They do not have to attend meetings in order to become a member. Everybody loves an easy fundraiser! Just think about all the great things that PTO does for our school; playground equipment, classroom money, Fun Friday, free field trip shirts, and the list goes on! The drive ends Friday, Aug. 26. West Chester faculty and staff would like to extend our sympathy to Starla Bogard and her family in the loss of her mother-in-law. We would also like to welcome Phyllis Crawford to West Chester. She will be working closely with kindergarten students and teachers this year. Kindergarten students have finished their opening unit on colors. Students learned all about colors and how to mix primary colors to make new colors. They have begun studying letters with the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Lois Ehlert.

We are in the middle of our PTO Membership Drive, which continues through Friday of this week. We are asking each student to bring in a minimum of $4 for two PTO memberships.

an Astronaut where they learned facts about what astronauts do in space. Carrie Sells’ students made their own paper rockets and had a contest to see who could launch theirs the farthest. Gracie Eskew came in first place. Congratulations, Gracie! Third grade’s big news was helping Susan Patterson celebrate her birthday on Friday. Dr. Brian McCarver met her at the door in his white doctor’s coat and wheeled her down the hall. Her doom (room) was decorated with streamers and

there were rose petals leading to her desk. She was presented with a bouquet of dead flowers and birthday balloons. Every hour someone or a class appeared at her door to sing Happy Birthday. All of the third-grade teachers wore lots of bling to honor Mrs. Patterson on her special day! You will never guess how old she is… she certainly doesn’t look her age! We hope everyone has a safe and happy week. Pick up a book and read. That is what we will be doing!

FHU to open new Teaching and Learning Ctr., Innovators’ Room

Isaac Gross performs with the Marching Eagles Band Friday at half-time of the CCHS football game.

The newly renovated Teaching and Learning Center and Innovators’ Room are set to open during the Fall 2011 semester, according to the Center for Instructional Technology at FreedHardeman University. These facilities, which are located in the BrownKopel Business Center, were developed by the CIT and IT staff to better serve FHU faculty and students. The Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) will feature a soundproof

room, which includes a Mac Pro, two displays, a web camera and a microphone; this equipment will allow faculty to produce podcasts and video casts to enhance their lectures. A digital commons area will be used to watch tutorials and house faculty technology references. Patrick Bolton, an FHU instructional technologist, was involved in researching and designing the TLC. He says, “It is a location where the faculty can work on special projects and take advantage of

Thursday, Aug. 25. So far, we have had two games and have won each of them! We hope to keep up the winning streak! The girls’ softball team played their first game at Eagle field on Aug. 16 against Jackson Christian School. The girls’ softball team played Tuesday and will play Thursday against Lexington. The girls’ soccer team played their first game on Monday, played again on Tuesday and will play Friday at home against McNairy County. All soccer games begin at 5:30 p.m. If you get a chance, come and support these fine athletes and coaches.

for the second consecutive year, prior to the Jackson Generals game this Saturday, Aug. 27. They will also be dancing and cheering in the stands during the game! Game time is 6:05 p.m. All friends and family are encouraged to come out and show your support. Progress Reports will go out on Thursday, Sept. 1. Ask your child to see his/hers. If you have questions, or want to talk to a particular teacher about your child’s grades, call or email to find out the best time to meet with them. Check out the updated website at www.chester-

countyschools.org. There is quite a bit of information that you might find useful about the junior high: Sports schedules, club information, policies in place, lunch menus and the school calendar. Under the resources tab and guidance link, you will find several websites that both parents and students might find helpful for many reasons. Individual teacher email addresses are listed, as well. Don’t forget that school will be dismissed on Friday, Sept. 2, for a staff development day and there will be no school on Monday, Sept. 5, in observance of Labor Day.

Horn ‘o plenty

By Ally Rogers There is a lot of Eagle excitement in the air at the junior high! We will have a pep rally on Thursday, Aug. 25, to honor all of this season’s teams. The Eagles will host their first home football game against University School of Jackson at 6:30 p.m. on

Good luck and GO EAGLES! Student Council will be selecting new members soon. Essays are due on Sept. 1 and interviews will be on Sept. 8. Diane Ivery, Olivia Bradford and Tommie Kirk are sponsors of the student council. I hope you all will make plans to attend the first meeting of the “Eagles Nest” at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30, in the gym. This will be an organizational meeting for parents interested in helping the junior high faculty, staff and students. The CCJHS cheerleaders will be performing on the field at Pringles Park,

the more powerful Macs and more robust software.” The Innovators’ Room is equipped with a projector, two LCD panels and upgraded audio and video equipment. These features will be capable of such tasks as lecture capture, blended course instruction, remote presentation and group engagement activities. Starting in the fall, faculty members will have the opportunity to teach out of this room for the semester; they will receive training from the CIT staff so that they can interact more effectively with the equipment and their students. Bolton believes the Innovators’ Room will be beneficial in many ways. “This room offers the opportunity for the faculty to develop their pedagogical use of technology in an environment unlike any other on campus. It will allow the teacher to share more information with the student than ever before. It also gives CIT and faculty the opportunity to test what technologies are most useful as we equip other classrooms on campus with similar technology.”
