146th YEAR - NO. 24

SERVING CHESTER COUNTY SINCE 1865

$1.00

Chamber approaches board, pleas for grant application The City of Henderson will recognize

Halloween

Sunday, Oct. 31

Early voting begins at new location Early voting is now underway in Chester County for the Nov. 2 General Election. According to Michelle White, Administrator of Elections for Chester County, early voting is now taking place in their newly-constructed facility in the Public Safety Building. The back half of the old courtroom, located at 126 Crook Ave., has been modified for use as the early voting location. White gives much credit to new Chester County Mayor Dwain Seaton for ensuring the facility was ready in time for use during this election cycle. White points out that the advantages of the new facility include easier and faster access to the voting machines. Early voting is now through Oct. 28. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 23. For more information on early voting, and for any question about the election process, call the Chester County Election Commission at 989-4039.

Without a doubt the downtown area of Henderson could use a much needed makeover. Buildings stand lacking uniformity and portray a theme of ‘yesteryear’ but not in a good way. Chamber members approached the board of mayor and aldermen at last Thursday night’s monthly board meeting and requested the city apply for a state T-21 grant. The local Chamber of Commerce fears the lack of improvements downtown will cost the community in terms of missed opportunities and hampers their ability to promote tourism. The funding, totaling around the $900,000 mark, from the grant would lend to the revitalization of Henderson’s downtown area by way of new sidewalks, lightinglamp posts, handicap accessibility, landscape etc. “As we sit here today you can

not leave the city limits of Henderson and drive through a town that has not applied for or is in a first or second phase of the T-21 grant,” said Chamber representative Brian Henson. Henson pronounced that Selmer, Bethel Springs, Bolivar, Adamsville, Lexington, Linden, Huntington, Milan, Jackson, Ridgley, and Brownsville have all received the grant and added the Chamber is merely urging the city to apply and no decision to accept the grant had to be made right now. “We’re two years away from a ‘yes’ or ‘no’, but all we are asking for is that we have the decision to make two years down the road, we might not even get it,” enforced Henson. “But we sure won’t get it if we don’t apply, that’s absolute.” However, a handful of aldermen argued where the funding would come from for the 20 per-

cent match involved. If obtained, the city would be left with a roughly $180,000 price tag for the project. Alderman Bobby Barnes said for a small town like Henderson nearly $200,000 is hard to come by. “Our downtown looks horrific, I’m the first to say,” said Barnes. “But if we move forward (with this project) the taxpayers have to foot that percentage, either raise water, raise sewer, raise taxes. “We’ve already spent a tremendous amount of money on sidewalks, I would like to see a lot more downtown to the buildings,” Barnes said. The T-21 grant is only applicable to public property, meaning no business fronts would receive funding for renovation. TLM architect Randy McKinnon addressed the board See GRANT, Page 3-A

Voters take advantage of the new, more spacious location for early voting in the Public Safety Building behind the Chester County Courthouse. Early voting for the Nov. 2 election continues through Oct. 28.

Gresham announces state funds for Chester County State Senator Dolores Gresham announced last week that during the fiscal year 20102011 Chester County will receive over $27.7 million in state expenditures, under the budget adopted by the 106th General Assembly in June. “Chester County fared very well in state funds over the past fiscal year,” said Gresham. “This is particularly good news because the budget reflects an overall reduction in state government. Over the last three years, we have cut the state budget by over $1.5 billion, with almost all agencies having a reduction in their 2010-11 fiscal year base funding.” Gresham listed budget appropriations for Chester County in the following general categories: $13.5 million for education; $363,500 for economic development and higher education; $2.8 million in shared state tax collections; $6.98 million for health and social services; $2.1 million for corrections and public safety; $758,300 for recreation, tourism and preservation; and $1.2 million for state highway projects. “In spite of overall state reductions, education, jobs and

public safety continue as priorities,” Gresham added. “As we work to maintain a balanced

Ladies Day Out, Huron man arrested on Funds just a month away child exploitation charges From Page 1-A

Robert Stacy Kilgore has been arrested on a criminal complaint alleging two violations of federal criminal law involving the production and possession of child pornography, announced last week by Edward L. Stanton, III, United States Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee. The Complaint resulted from an investigation conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, with assistance from the Office of General Jerry Woodall, the District Attorney General for Henderson,

Madison, and Chester counties, and the member agencies of the FBI Memphis Crimes Against Children Task Force. Kilgore, 42, is a resident of Huron. The charge of sexual exploitation of children (production of child pornography) carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years incarceration and a maximum of 30 years incarceration, followed by a period of supervised release of five years to life, a fine of up to $250,000, and a $100 special assessment. The

charge of possession of child pornography carries a possible maximum sentence of not more than 10 years incarceration followed by a term of supervised release of not less than five years to life, a fine of up to $250,000, and a $100 special assessment. Kilgore made his initial appearance before the Honorable Magistrate Judge Edward G. Bryant in Jackson Oct. 13. Assistant U.S. Attorney Debra L. Ireland will be handling this matter on behalf of the United States Attorney’s Office.

I’m sure they will be willing to step up to the plate.” Chester County Mayor Dwain Seaton was also in attendance and said the county will be applying for the same type of grant to renovate the courthouse’s landscape and told board members obtaining the grant would likely be more successful if it was a city/county joint effort. There is no cost to apply for the T-21 grant and the board has the opportunity to turn down the grant, if received with no penalty fee. Nov. 1 is the deadline to apply for the T-21 grant. The board recessed the meeting until Tuesday Oct. 19, to vote on the matter. The outcome of the meeting was not available at press time. “It’s our home, we need to have pride in our home,” concluded Henson. In other matters, Utility Director Mark Elkins advised the board on the water and utility expansion project in the county. Elkins informed the Wilson School/Maness Road project has been completed and noted it as, “successful”. The new system will support the addition of approximately 200 new homes. Elkins explained the gas expansion project in the northern part of the county, Mifflin area, has been somewhat frustrating. The city has obtained 33 services for gas so far and Elkins cited there are over 200 propane users in

the area. Only three services have been issued along Needmore Road with an estimated potential of 55 services. “People are stuck with partially used propane tanks and they can’t afford to waste them,” he added. Elkins asked the board if they wish to halt the project until a greater number of interested customers were available for sign up. The board opted to continue the project stating when the residents who use propane need gas, the city’s gas utilities want to be available. Interim Public Works Director Carter Scales addressed the board with the problem of street sign theft stating the board needs to expand the budget for those exceeding costs. Since last month 25 street signs have been stolen in the city limits costing the city $500, and $400 was spent replacing signs the previous month. Ald. Tim Faulkner also addressed the problem of residents operating “serial” yard sales as a business, and asked city attorney Jerry Spore to look into the matter further. “They’re operating a business out of their house, and someone needs to stop them from doing that,” said Faulkner.

Grant stating in most cases the grant poses as a domino effect, in when the sidewalk area receives improvement, the business owners usually follow suit. “In downtown Martin for example, they received the grant, and I don’t know that every building in downtown Martin doesn’t have a new awning, paint, windows, and a new store front,” said McKinnon. “I think we’re on the right track and we really need to do something here, but we’re going to have to have buy in from some of the business owners and what they’re going to do,” said Ald. Johny Farris. “A lot of our business owners that own those buildings don’t even live here anymore.” Ald. Michael Phelps expressed the importance to revitalize your downtown area to draw future o u t - o f - t o w n business/industry with a vested interest in Henderson. “When they look at your downtown area and its surroundings they’re not going to be interested unless we’re interested, we’re going to be left behind, we’re already left behind.” said Phelps. “I think it’s good to apply and leave it in the hands of the citizens. If people agree and want to do this,

Chester County ladies are encouraged to mark their calendars now for the first annual “Ladies Day Out” to be held Nov. 20, at Chester County High School.

Stew sold out in two hours! Jacks Creek Fire Department sold about 150 gallons of good hot stew. The firemen and volunteers worked hard to help raise money for the department. This was the first time we used our very own black iron pots. Al McKinnon spoke highly of community workers and public supporting the department. The firemen have fought several fires, and still had strength to stir the pot. Hats off to them! Getting ready to head to the mountains for a peek at autumn’s beauty? Most folks are eastbound this time of the year, but Hazel Plunk came down Monday through Wednesday from East Tennessee to visit

her sister, Dorothy Maxell Norville. It was a Kodak moment to see sisters face each other during Dorothy’s physical therapy at Transitional Care. Later Hazel, Howard, Dorothy, and I had refreshments and spent catch-up time. We went back Tuesday to share more fun with Dorothy. They are the daughters of Homer and Eva Plunk. The older gang from Jacks Creek will know these ladies, and will remember Hazel being a tom boy. Hazel is going back to see Plunk Hill, visit David and Ruby Courdle, peek at Minnie Plunk’s old home, tour Jacks Creek School to see the mural of the old school, and walk several cemeteries. Going home brings lots of memories to the heart and pulls on those heart strings. Jack’s was the breakfast meeting place Tuesday morning for a Jacks Creek reunion of school pals. A few phone calls reached Geralene Morris

The October meeting of the Ingleside-Pentagon Club was held in the lovely home of Becky Cyr. Members gathered on the patio, enjoying the fall breeze and the sense of seclusion and peace. Becky and co-hostess Janice Kent served an assortment of delicious refreshments to members Joan Brown, Regina East, Glenda Gardner, Beverly Hardin, Nancy Lofton, Frances Melton, Laurel Sewell, Carolyn Swift, Joan Swift, Nicole Williams, Ann Woods, and guests Phyllis Hester and little Mary Charlotte Williams. The group then moved inside and President Beverly Hardin called the meeting to order and conducted the business meeting. Following the business meeting, co-hostess Frances Melton presented the program. She read poems about the beauty of friendship and the treasure of memories. She spoke of the impact friends had on her life and the pleasure remembering them brings, particularly

mentioning Pearl Griffin. For years Pearl helped Frances decorate her home at Christmas in preparation for the club’s Christmas party at the Melton home, and memories of Pearl enrich her life, especially at Christmas. Sharing good memories often produces laughter, and there was much laughter at the memory of the Meltons’ dog, Tramp, enthusiastically “singing” along with Fentress Casey every year at the Christmas party. Tramp especially enjoyed “singing” Silent Night with Fentress and the club each year. Other club members also shared rich memories and recalled the happiness Ouida Landon spread to others and the unfailing cheerfulness and elegance of Rebecca Woods. Before going home, members enjoyed wandering around Becky’s lovely home, in which some cherished items from the past demonstrate that memories are treasures that enrich our lives today.

It’s all love and no discipline.” – Joyce Brothers

Thompson (who just happens to be here from Alabama), Maedell Thompson Chumney, Mary Louise Newsom Barnes, Ruby Nobles Wright, Andy Maness, plus new friends, Betty Newman, Sue Wright and me. It was fun to see the sparkle in their eyes telling tales. Bet they all climbed trees, played in a gulley, swam in the creek, and simply pushed snakes to one side to continue swimming. Picking cotton was a way of life; all of them pulled a sack. Bet the kids today do not know what that means! Ask them. Four generations and four friends of mine met on Oct. 17 to honor the memory of a shared birthday. Ariel Talley turned age 2 on her great-grandmother’s (Minnie Arnold) birthday. Minnie was looking forward to celebrating, but she died peacefully, a gift in itself. Thankfully Allen Arnold, Kay Arnold Stewart, and Hayley

Stewart Talley celebrated four generations of life on this earth with little Ariel, who sang, “Jesus Loves Me.” It was good for Allen to relax in Memphis with family. Prediction for you to observe – there will be a full moon on Oct. 21. Arriving just in time for a few birthdays belated or early are local folks that moved from the Creek area except one of them – Lucy Jones Burgess (12), Anita Richardson Henley (13), Susie Climer Crowell (23), Don Jones (24), and

Cynthia Pierce Grimsley (31). Bet that one would move if I did – I’m thinking New York, but he’s thinking New York style pizza. That sounds delicious! The students are working hard to raise money for the JC Fall Festival on Oct. 30. There will be a meal served, so call the school for information. You can buy meal tickets from any student. Braelyn Ellis asked us first. Norman Smith, formerly from the Sweetlips area, is at Lexington Manor. Geralene Thompson and I

visited him Sunday. We visited Elizabeth Morris (Frank) Bowels there, too. Friends are requesting prayer for Ed Pitts and Lurlean Goodwin. I froze Jacks Creek stew for them. That will help heal them for sure. Our community expresses sympathy to the families of Teresa Colbert (8-29-67/10-12-10); James Knipper, Sr. (4-2-40/10-1210); and Linda Combs Maurer (11-28-53/10-1610). Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

dows to ward off evil spirits. The carving of pumpkins is associated with Halloween in North America where pumpkins are both readily available and much larger – making them easier to carve than turnips. Many families that celebrate Halloween carve a pumpkin into a frightening or comical face and place it on their doorstep after dark. The American tradition of carving pumpkins preceded the Great Famine period of Irish immigration and was originally associated with harvest time in general, not becoming specifically associated with Halloween until the midto-late 19th century. The imagery of Halloween is derived from many sources, including national customs, works of Gothic and horror literature (such as the novels Frankenstein and Dracula), and classic horror films (such as Frankenstein and The Mummy). Elements of the autumn season, such as pumpkins, cornhusks, and scarecrows are also prevalent. Homes are often decorated with these types of symbols around Halloween. Halloween imagery includes themes of death, evil, the occult, magic, or mythical monsters. Traditional characters include ghosts, witches, skeletons, vampires, werewolves, demons, bats, and black cats. The colors black and orange are associated with the celebrations because of the darkness of

night and the color of bonfires, autumn leaves, and jack-o’-lanterns. Bethel Baptist Church will have their annual Trunk or Treat on Oct. 30. Everyone is welcome to bring their children. Attitudes are contagious. Are yours worth catching? - Dennis and

Wendy Mannering The next Community Club meeting will be Thursday, Nov. 4 due to the election. Everyone try to come and be a part of our community. Keep smiling and have a great week. Call me at 879-9777 and give me your news.

SPOKANE AIRPORT, July 7, 2010: A crowd clogged the U.S. Airways ticketing kiosks. A group of teenagers was disembarking from buses and, with their chaperones, forming lines to check their bags. The all wore bright yellow shirts with Bible verses. It was a church youth tour headed to camp in Colorado. My wife and I had returned our rental car after a few days’ vacation in northern Idaho. It was several hours until our flight so we found seats across from the ticketing area and waited for the kids to get their boarding passes and head to the security checkpoint. As the church tour began to dwindle, we noticed another knot of folks milling around. Cameras were flashing. A television video team was filming. I wondered if they had gathered around a celebrity. The lakes region of Idaho has become a recreational Mecca for Hollywood and sports stars. Their multimillion dollar homes are jewels on the shoreline and in the mountains where skiing is the winter lure. But this attention wasn’t focused on pop stars, actors, musicians, ball players or other icons. Another type of fame was attracting attention – that garnered from real respect and gratitude. Fame earned from sacrifice, bloodshed on foreign soil and seas, dogged determination to defeat evil in the world and protect our nation – the real stuff – was on display. An Honor Flight of World War II veterans was assembling to fly from Spokane to Washington, D.C. Old soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines in their 80s and 90s – and all strangers before this day – waited patiently for their turns at the ticket counter. Not a few were in wheelchairs, some with oxygen bottles. Others depended on walkers, crutches or canes. A few were remarkably young looking. They helped the less ambulatory, just like they were old squad or messmates who’d known one another for years. WW II vets don’t meet strangers among those who also served. They called out, “Hey, Bud…”

or “Hey, Joe…” to each other. Said a U.S. Army vet with a baseball cap that had “Anzio” printed across the top: “I’d bum a butt off these guys if I still smoked. Been quit 40 years now, but something about this day, being around folks who lived it like I did, makes me want a Chesterfield real bad.” He laughed, and his silver-haired wife swatted his arm. Her eyes were moist. My wife choked up. Her dad served in the Anzio invasion. He told stories about what it was like in North Africa, Sicily and Italy. They were sad stories, stories of hardship and wreckage and loss. Not like the John Wayne movies or TV shows we watched in the 1950s. My father never talked about Leyete Gulf or Okinawa. When I was a boy, all I knew was that he had piloted a LCVP, a landing craft that carried soldiers and Marines to the beachheads. I found his tattered copy of the Blue Jackets Manual in a box of old papers and studied it carefully for clues to what he did during the war. There wasn’t much on which to speculate. Other kids bragged about their dads, all of them heroes who bravely led charges or turned the tide of battle. Decorated, they were. It was all glory and glamour. I felt deprived because my father had served but what had he done? He never volunteered information, so I made up stories and told my friends. I elevated my father to hero status because I truly did not know and feared he wasn’t. I grew up and dwelled less on my father’s military record, more on wondering whether my very low draft number would mean a stint in Vietnam. Dad advised me to join the Navy, not to follow in his footsteps but because: “They [Viet Cong] don’t have ships and torpedoes!” It was not until our children were in high school and the oldest son had been assigned an oral history project that we finally knew what my father’s WW II career had been. For some reason, he opened up for his grandson. The tape

Honor Flight renewed the fellowship of veterans recorder seemed a window to the past and a platform for him. He talked about the noise a bullet makes when it splats against a metal bulkhead, what it felt like to watch a Kamikaze airplane arc lazily toward a radar picket destroyer and, at the last second, plunge arrow-like into the deck to produce a plume of fiery black smoke – and know men had died at that moment in time. My father was indeed a hero, just like those unheralded Honor Flight vets at the Spokane Airport. Anyone who endured those bloody years and especially those who gifted the ultimate treasure – their lives – were the real heroes. Unless you are the son or daughter of a WW II vet, you might not understand. Those millions of heroes came home and went to work, making this nation a place fit for their families. I didn’t need to make up stories about my dad. I just needed to understand the humble-

ness of the men and women who served in the last great worldwide conflict. My father cannot go on an Honor Flight, much as I would like to pay for his trip. He’s 85 years old, physically still a powerful man with a prizefighter’s shoulders (we learned he was a fleet boxing champ), but his mind is going away. We won’t have him much longer. So much of his essence has already dwindled. I think he’d like the idea of the Honor Flight, would approve of old men who once were young warriors gathering together for a last trip. He smoked Chesterfields, too, along with Lucky Strikes, Camels and other brands. In a foxhole or behind the blast shield of an anti-aircraft gun, it didn’t matter the type or whether you knew the guy who shared his pack. What mattered was that you were fellow warriors on a trip to an unknown outcome. Some

would withstand the trial and come through unscathed. Others would not be so lucky. But everyone remembered those times in the dark-

ness when brotherhood was defined by the glow on the end of a cigarette and an earnest question was asked, “Where you from, Bud?”

No-quit Eaglettes win volleyball district By James A. Webb General Manager

The Chester County Eaglettes rallied from a two-game deficit to defeat South Side 3-2 and claim their second straight district volleyball championship. The win Thursday at South Side advanced CCHS to the regional tournament which took place Tuesday at Eagle Gym, with the top two teams advancing on to the

sectional tonight (Thursday). Sectional winners advance to the state tournament next week. Chester County was 10-0 in district games during the regular season. After losing the first two games of the best-of-five match, CCHS head coach Susan Humphry reminded her team of the dominance they had displayed over the last two months. “You’ve done it before.

Kirsten Henry and Logan McEarl of Chester County team-up for a block in the Eaglettes’ district tournament championship game victory over South Side, Thursday in Jackson.

Just do it,” she told her troops. “Maintain your composure and play together, and they did.” This victory was special for Humphry since she returned only two starters after graduating five seniors from the 2009 championship team. “Kamara Trice and Logan McEarl are our only varsity players that have played bigtime games. To repeat after losing five seniors is huge,” she said. South Side scored the match’s first point, building a quick 7-2 lead in game one. They stretched it to 11-2 before the Eaglettes won six of the next seven points. However, the “Hawkettes,” as they use to be called, easily fin-

ished out that first game, 25-14. CCHS took its first lead by scoring the first point of game two, but South Side reasserted itself quickly to go up 3-1. The Eaglettes stayed close this time, but never led. A five-point run narrowed the deficit to two points before the Lady Hawks scored the final five to win 25-18. However, South Side looked somewhat spent emotionally and physically. A see-saw game early in the third was tied at seven following a fourpoint run by South Side. CCHS then ran off five straight which included a service ace by Cynthia See VOLLEY, Page 3-B

Methodical CCHS controls South Side By James A. Webb General Manager

Chester County used a methodical offense to control the line of scrimmage and defeat South Side 3314 Friday in high school football at Jackson. The Eagles, 4-4 overall and 4-1 in the district, kept alive their chances for

advancing to the state playoffs for a third straight season. South Side, however, continued a dismal season as they fell to 1-7. After forcing a threeand-out by the host Hawk team, CCHS took 19 plays to drive 82 yards for the game’s first score on a one-yard dive by quarter-

back Austin Cavaness. The Eagles converted on five third down tries to keep the game alive. The Hawks had a chance to get right back in the game. With CCHS facing a fourth down in their own territory, punter Brandon Rodriguez was sacked before he could off

the kick, giving the Hawks the ball at the CCHS 16yard line. However, the Eagle defense would not budge, taking the ball back on downs. On Chester County’s next series, a 52-yard punt by Rodriguez backed up the Hawks to their 22See CCHS, Page 2-B

Lady Lions hand Union first conference loss It was a much-needed win that couldn’t have come at a much better time. Looking like the team that has won three straight conference titles, the Freed-Hardeman Lady Lions’ volleyball team made a statement in the form of a 3-1 win over Union University Thursday night, handing the Lady Bulldogs (15-5, 8-1) their first conference loss of the year. After dropping the first set, 25-19, the Lady Lions dominated the next two with 25-10 and 25-15 wins and then held off several Union pushes to take the fourth set, 25-19. The win helped FHU (7-7, 6-3) move into a third place tie with Martin Methodist and only a half-game out of second place behind Cumberland. The Lady Lions’ attack was very efficient in the last three sets after posting a .079 hitting percentage with eight errors in the first. FHU totaled 45 kills in its three set victories with a .361 attack percentage. Union, meanwhile, committed 20 attack errors in the same span on its way to a .076 percentage. It was the fifth win in the last six meetings between the schools for Freed-Hardeman, which broke out of a mid-season funk with some adjustments in the offensive game plan. “We changed the offense a little during the week and it really helped us out tonight,” said FHU head coach Todd Humphry. “We spread the offense around.” Indeed, the FHU attack was quite balanced. Sydney Rice led the way with 17 kills while Fernanda Ferreira had 16 and Sandra Montoya added 14, combining for a .349 hitting percentage. The first set didn’t show immediate results, although Freed-Hardeman took eight straight points early to take an 11-10 lead. Union, however, was able to take advantage of eight FHU attack errors, two of which came on back-to-back rallies to give UU a four-point cushion late in the set. But when the changes finally clicked, they worked quite well. The Lady Lions opened the secSee FHU, Page 3-B

Narrow misses play factor as FHU ties Trevecca Freed-Hardeman women’s soccer remains one win short of tying the program record for victories in a season (nine), after posting its eighth shutout of the season when FHU and Trevecca tied 0-0 Friday in Henderson. Although Trevecca outshot FHU, 20-12, it was the Lady Lions who saw the better scoring opportunities, particularly in the second half. Perhaps the best chance came in the 67th minute when

Whitney Newby centered a ball to Briley Collins who solidly struck the pass in stride, but the ball sailed just inches wide of the right post. Collins again missed by mere inches in the 88th minute, hitting the left post on a hard strike from near the top of the box. The Trojans could not convert on a quality opportunity themselves shortly afterward on a counter-attack. Lindsey Robinson was left alone inside the box on the left

side, but miss-hit the ball and sent it well wide of the left post with seconds left in regulation. Collins hit the post for a second time on a shot in the 99th minute. It would be FHU’s only shot in either overtime period. Senior goalkeeper Tiffany Harris was spectacular for FreedHardeman, stopping 14 shots and making several nice plays on crosses sent in front of the goal. The Lady Lions host Brescia at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Hyde, Lions blast Trevecca for ninth win If there were any questions about what the Freed-Hardeman Lion soccer team was capable of doing, those questions were likely answered on Friday night. FHU scored five goals over a sevenminute span in the second half en route to a 7-0 win over Trevecca Nazarene. The seven goals are the most that the Lions have ever scored in a conference match. They also marked the first time in program history that the Lions have posted back-to-back shutouts in conference play. Freed-Hardeman (9-3, 2-2) wasted little time in getting on the board as Simbarashe Zvaita opened the scoring

Bolivar comes calling at 7 p.m. Friday Chester County continues what it hopes will be a school-record third straight playoff push when Bolivar Central arrives at Eagle Stadium at 7 p.m. Friday. “We control our own fate,” emphasized CCHS head coach Jeff Cupples. Wins in its final two games would give the Eagles at least a tie for first place in the district. Last year, Chester County, Lexington and South Side tied for second place and all made the post-season. The top two teams in the league automatically get tickets to the dance. Other league members can qualify on their overall record. Cupples emphasized that Bolivar is much improved over last year in the skill positions. A highscoring game is probable. A victory over Bolivar would clinch at least third place in the district for the Eagles but would not

CCHS yard line. But Trent Wilson broke free for a 37yard scoring run, and when the Eagles were caught napping on a twopoint trick play, South Side had an 8-7 lead. It was to be short-lived however, as following the kickoff, Cavaness found Ryan Turner streaking down the home sidelines and hit the junior with a 66-yard pass, giving CCHS the lead for good. Turner’s 40-yard return of an interception in the third quarter setup CCHS for a one-yard run by Matthew Butler and a 196 lead. Wilson brought the Hawks back to a 19-14 deficit, ahead of Jake Melaro’s 20-yard scoring pass from Cavaness. Turner broke free for a 78yard TD gallop mid-way of the fourth quarter and Rodriguez booted his third PAT to complete the scoring. Cavaness threw only nine times in the game, but completed six for 113 yards. He also ran 12 times for 59 yards. “We tried to control the line of scrimmage,” said Cavaness. “That first series, we ran our base plays. Once we got them working, we ran our other stuff.” Turner had seven carries for 106 yards, and Butler 17 for 82. Jonathan Murley wrestled a fumble recovery for CCHS in the second period, and Butler recorded a pair of quarterback sacks. Dillon Williams broke up a South Side pass in the third quarter on a fourth-down and 12 pass in CCHS territory. For the game the Eagles ran the ball 48 times. “I was really glad to see them respond and take over the game in the second half,” said CCHS head coach Jeff Cupples.

assure them of a state playoff berth. Currently the Eagles are 4-1 in the district and Bolivar is 2-3. The Tigers had a huge non-district win recently over Dyer County. The problems for Chester County in advanc-

ing to the post season include its 0-3 non-district schedule that includes that frustrating loss to Adamsville on opening night. CCHS dominated the Cardinals everywhere in that game except the scoreboard.

in the eighth minute, scoring on a rebound of Kenniel Hyde’s cross. TNU keeper Hayden Coffman and Zvaita got to the ball at almost the same time, keeping Coffman from being able to get a good handle on it. Zvaita was then able to take the deflection and send it to the left corner. The Trojans recovered and maintained possession of the ball for much of the remainder of the first half until FHU got another Zvaita goal, this one in the 39th minute. Bryan Grosnick sent a long through ball to Ryan Engineer, who beat his defender and then touched the See LIONS, Page 3-B

It took only eight minutes to blow the game wide open. Hyde got into the scoring act in the 58th minute. Three minutes later, Zvaita was fouled in the box and Guilherme Dorigo made it a 4-0 FHU lead by beating Coffman to the upper left corner on a penalty kick.

FHU ond set with a 10-2 lead and never let up, trailing just once the rest of the match when Union took the first point of the fourth set. FHU promptly took the next three points afterward and never trailed again. “In the first game took us a while to get into a groove with new offense and different positions,” Humphry said. “Once we got used to it, it clicked. We got off to great start in second game and that got us some momentum. Amber [Turner] did a nice job of spreading the offense around.” Turner, taking sole possession of setter duties after sharing the role with freshman Renata Ferreira for the team’s first 13 matches, finished the night with a season-high 48 assists.

ior defender Saul Simpson who took the PK and scored his first collegiate goal to make it 5-0. The Lions scored again just more than 30 seconds later when Tafara Tinarwo beat a Trojan defender to a through ball on the right side and centered to Hyde for his second goal of the night. The final goal came in the 65th minute set up by a pass by Hyde ahead to Ryan Engineer, who beat reserve keeper Shane Cline one-on-one. FHU out-shot Trevecca 15-10 and held an 11-7 edge in shots on goal. Alexandre Girodo stopped six shots for FHU in 72 minutes of play before being relieved by Hunter Yoches. The Lions host Brescia at 7 p.m. Saturday night. In addition to her 14 kills - which came on 31 attempts with no errors Montoya also totaled five blocks (one solo, four assists), served up five aces and had 16 digs. Claire Pennington led the defense with 22 digs.

Volley Beene. The Eaglettes never trailed again in that game, helped along by service errors the Lady Hawks. Dinks by Kirsten Henry, McEarl, and Emily Humphry, along with an ace by Sarah Cox, completed a seven-point CCHS run, and they eventually won 25-19. With CCHS now down only two games to one, the mood in the South Side gym began to change. Minds began to wonder, could the Eaglettes pull off the comeback? Early in the fourth game each team exhibited their skills well, but with the Lady Hawks appearing to tire, CCHS reeled off five straight to go up 14-7, capped by an ace from Beene. The final five points of the game included a “winner” at the net by Henry, and three aces from Humphry to close out the game, 25-15, and even the score at two games each. CCHS grabbed a quick

1-0 lead in the deciding 15-point final game. Blocks at net by Henry and Bailey Gately of CCHS knotted the score at four. However, up 8-5 minutes later, South Side hit their second serve of the game into the net, igniting a 9-1 run and 14-9 lead for the Eaglettes. The run included a pair of spikes from Trice, and a winning hit by Beene, plus some pure luck on yet another CCHS point. On the brink of defeat South Side won the next two points, ahead of a championship winning spike by Trice. It was appropriate for Trice to close out the match, as it was announced followed the contest that she was the district’s regular season Co-Player of the Year with South Side’s Morgan Singleton. Trice also earned the tournament’s Most Valuable Player award. Other all-stars from CCHS included all-district regular season performers Jana Frye, McEarl, and Humphry. Tournament all-stars included Henry and McEarl.

By Ally Rogers I hope everyone was able to rest and enjoy Fall Break. Thank you to all who came for Parent-

EEdduuccaattiioonn Teacher Conferences. We had a great turnout and appreciate your support of the students and teachers. The Eagles and Eaglettes played in a Jamboree in Scotts Hill Tuesday night. They will play in the Panther Classic on Tuesday of next week in Decatur County at their high school. I encourage you all to come and support our Junior High basketball teams!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, basketball cheerleaders will be wearing pink ribbons during this month. Pictures for Who’s Who will be taken Friday, Oct. 22. Students included will need to wear their uniforms. We wish to say goodbye to three student teachers. Shayna Johnson was in Julie Frerot’s English classes, Zach Burns was in

Wes Murphy’s history classes, and Brian Bullard was in Janice Cooper’s physical education classes. We wish them the very best in their endeavors. Yearbooks can still be purchased online (www.smart-pay.com), by phone (1-800-853-1337), or by mail. Please do not send any money to school for these. For any other information, contact Marilyn Davis.

Use with caution: Supplements By Amy DeLeonRogers UT Extension

It’s best to do some research before stocking up on dietary supplements. Be sure to talk to your doctor or pharmacist and then choose major brands, and always read the label instructions. Supplements are products containing one or more dietary ingredient, intended to add to a person’s normal diet. They come in many forms, such as tablets, gel-caps, capsules, powders, tinctures, teas and liquids. Ingredients found in supplements often include vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, metabolites, extracts, organ tissues, enzymes and concentrates. Supplements are meant to give you the same ingredients that a food would give you, but for some reason you’re not taking in enough of that food. Vitamins and minerals in foods are taken into our body more so than in any other form. Be mindful of safety considerations. Know that contamination is possible and that the integrity of

dosage and ingredients are not assured. When purchasing supplements, select products made in countries with high regulatory standards such as the U.S., Canada, or Europe. Also look for labels such as “GMP or USP,” which give more assurance of product integrity. Americans spend well over $15 billion on natural product supplements each year. About 70 percent of people taking supplements do not tell their doctors about it. People tend to forget that supplements cause side effects and may react with medications. Although some supplements are safe and effective, there has not been enough research conducted to determine supplements’ safety, and long-term effects on the body of a majority of other s u p p l e m e n t s . Supplements can interact with medications, food, other supplements and pre-existing conditions. Because of these risks, some people should absolutely not use supplements, she said. Beware of outrageous claims of health benefits when selecting supple-

ments. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Be careful of dosing more is not necessarily better with supplements. Some products can even be harmful when consumed in high amounts, for an extended period, or with other substances. Herbs have been traditionally used for thousands of years to treat disease and strengthen the body, keep in mind that even back then, herbs were used sparingly and for short amounts of time. Some supplements are downright dangerous and should be used with caution: Aconite can cause poisoning, low blood pressure, respiratory and heart problems - even death. Comfrey, chaparral, coltsfoot, greater celandine and kava cause irreversible and abnormal liver function or damage, with possible death. Germanium can cause kidney damage or even lead to death. Bitter orange is substituted for the now-banned ephedra. It can lead to high blood pressure, possible arrhythmias, fainting, heart attack, stroke and death. This risk increases

with other herbs similar to caffeine - often found in weight-loss products - are taken simultaneously. Organ and glandular extracts can cause mad cow disease. Lobelia causes low blood pressure, digestive upset, tremors, breathing problems, rapid heartbeat, confusion and possible death. Colloidal silver has been in the news recently and can lead to bluish skin, kidney damage and neurological problems. Yohimbe can cause blood pressure changes, heart arrhythmias, respiratory depression, heart attack, anxiety and possible death. Any side effects experienced from these or any other dietary supplements should be reported to FDA MedWatch at 1-800-FDA1088. Other sources for information on herbal and other supplements can be found at the Office of Dietary S u p p l e m e n t s , http://ods.od.nih.gov/, and the University of Maryland Complementary and Alternative Medicine Index at http://www.umm.edu/altm ed/.

Report suggests advantage of Pre-K students fades over time A new report released by the state Comptroller’s Offices of Research and Education Accountability (OREA) is consistent with previous reports in finding that pre-kindergarten has a significant effect in the early years of elementary school, but that the effect diminishes during and after second grade. Similar to the results of previous studies, this analysis of test scores reported from the 20082009 school year showed that pre-K participation was associated with small but reliable improvements in student performance in kindergarten and first grade, primarily among

economically disadvantaged students. The latest analysis also suggests that a small but statistically significant difference was detectable on some assessments in second grade. However, similar to findings in earlier reports, despite an early academic advantage, pre-K program participants did not perform measurably better beyond the second grade. The report, which was released today, is the fourth in a series and will be followed by a final report next year. “The results of the analysis of 2008-2009 test data are consistent with

earlier reports,” said Dr. Phillip Doss, OREA’s director. “The findings show that for economically disadvantaged students, pre-kindergarten has an effect that can persist into the second grade. However, for later years, the academic advantage that pre-kindergarten attendance provides is not detectable.” Economically disadvantaged students are defined as those who qualify for free or reduced price school lunches. OREA is an agency within the Comptroller’s office that is charged with providing accurate and objective policy research

and analysis for the Tennessee General Assembly and the public. OREA commissioned the Strategic Research Group, a firm that provides data collection, consultation and research services, to produce the series of reports on preK’s impact on student performance. The latest report, titled “Assessing the Effectiveness of Tennessee’s PreKindergarten Program: Second Annual Report,” may be viewed at: http://www.comptroller1.s tate.tn.us/Repository/RE/ Second Annual Report (Oct 11 2010).pdf.

Inside CCHS by Meghan Black This past week was fall break for the students of Chester County High School. Many students went on trips or found other ways to enjoy their week of freedom. I spoke to a few students to see how they spent their break. Many people stayed home. One student spent some time with his youth group. He explained that MEGHAN they got together to play BLACK games one night. Other students, also, seemed to find fun things to do at home or in town. A few students I spoke to went on trips. One student went to Branson, Mo., with a friend of hers and both of their mothers. She explained their very busy schedule packed with sightseeing, amusement parks, and shows. She had a very good time and even got to meet one of the performers in a show she went to see. No matter what these students did on their break, they all told me that they had fun, which is all that really matters. Whether traveling or staying at home, the high school students seemed to have a wonderful break. In other school news, HOSA has decided on their officers for the 2010-2011 school year. Taylor Watson will be serving as the president; Emilee Smith will be the vice president and historian; Brandi Smith will serve as the secretary and reporter; and Krista Hatch will be the service project chairman. HOSA has been very busy so far this year. HOSA is putting together a team for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. They have collected donations for hearts and shoes and with the addition from their candle sales, they hope to have raised several hundred dollars by the time the Cystic Fibrosis Walk takes place on Oct. 23. HOSA members are currently preparing for the Regionals which will be held at Union University in January. HOSA week will be coming up soon. There will be lots of fun and prizes in store. It will be a week you don’t want to miss.
