HPD investigating weekend shooting incident Bullets sprayed across the Bull Market parking lot Friday night in a shooting incident in which there were no reported injuries. Local authorities arrested Jeffrey Pirtle, 25, of Henderson, and charged him with attempted murder, reckless endangerment and intimidation. According to the police report, a witness flagged down police officers at approximately 10:50 p.m. on Oct. 22 and stated he was sitting in his vehicle at Bull Market when he heard “a loud bang” believed to be a gunshot and felt something impact the driver’s side of his vehicle.
The witness said when he looked up he saw two males standing near the entrance of the Bull Market and fleeing the scene in a brown Ford Taurus. Officers indicated the gun shot had penetrated his driver’s side door. Authorities interviewed another witness that said he was smoking outside the building and noticed two males arguing and they began to fight. Video surveillance of the incident revealed the two men arguing that led to an altercation, then one male subject pull a handgun from his right pants pocket and fired a shot at the other. That
subject was later identified as Jeffrey Pirtle with clothing and vehicle descriptions. Pirtle was later located at his Cedarhurst residence and placed into custody. He is scheduled to appear before a judge this Friday, Oct. 29. This incidence marks the second in the past few months where a shooting occurred that led to attempted murder charges. Matthew Ross faces attempted murder charges when he was arrested Sept. 15 after witnesses alleged Ross fired two shots towards them outside his passenger window as they were

Peter 50th anniversary Larry and Bernice Peter of Finger celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday, Oct. 23, 2010, at the First Methodist Church gym in Henderson. A host of friends and relatives from six states gathered at noon to laugh and cry with them at a program of tribute put together by their children, Johanna Jess of Smyrna, James Peter of Wichita, Kan., and Mark Peter of Henderson. Larry and Bernice retired to Tennessee from Kansas in 1995.

He sang the Beatles song, “When I’m Sixtyfour” just like he meant it!

Will you still feed me when I’m sixty-four?” Willadean Maness Thrasher and I decided to help him eat his words on his special day. He was fed waffles, fried eggs, tenderloin, blackberry jam, and fresh fruit; soon afterwards a DonnieDo list was presented (replace three light bulbs, hang 14 cleaned ceiling vents, repair mailbox, repair remote, and remove water fountain from storage).

Born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1886, Florence was an entertainer for most of her life. When she was age 3, she and her two brothers became members of their mother’s Lawrence Dramatic Company. They traveled from one small town to another, presenting vaudeville-type short productions. Her life changed considerably when she was 10. Her father died an accidental death in Hamilton. Her mother moved the family to Buffalo, N.Y., to live with her widowed mother, and to enroll the children in school. In 1906, Lotta and Florence applied for work at the new Edison Studios in New York. Both were hired to act in a 20-
scene film about Daniel Boone. After short stints in Broadway shows, Florence made the rounds of the moving picture offices. At Vitagraph Company, she was the first woman to play Shakespeare’s Juliet on film. This fact is cited in the American Film Institute Catalogue and the National Archives records. During 1908, she made 38 movies for Vitagraph. Later that year, Florence began work with famed director D.W. Griffith at Biograph Studios. As all performers of the time, Florence was anonymous. Studio bosses knew that if the performers were identified, they See DEAN, Page 5-A
is just as happy on the other side of the tree (Charles and Frances Ada, Tommy, Dawn, Sarah, and Payten). Frances will be making a bigger pot of salet and turnips. Little baby Payten Renee Weisman was born Oct. 21, 2010, in Sidney, Ill. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful Thanksgiving harvest if the bundle of pink arrived in Chester County for a five-generation photo shoot? If they come, I’ll furnish the turkey! Sixty-five kissin’ cousins arrived on Sunday, Oct. 24, to represent the Robertson family. Alma Jones and her “brood” (Sandra, Janice, Freda, and Lloyd) met at Jacks Creek for a reunion with good food and shared memories. The little ones really enjoyed playing with their cousins. The Robertson family consisted of twins Oscar and Arthur, Jim, John, Luther, Ed, and a lucky sister, Mary S e a g r a v e s . Representation from all made the family tree blossom. Prayer has been requested for Viola
Patterson. She is a knowledgeable lady at age 98. She lives at Chester County Healthcare. Prayers go to Jackie Gilliam, son of Jesse and Frances, has an arm injury from last Thursday. He is self-employed and Christy stays home with the kids. He will not be able to work until this injury heals. While in Memphis, we carried the Independent. Sadly, I read Sally Hathcoate had been buried. Too many conflicts kept me from taking the Pepsi I had bought for her to McNairy County. She was a kind and very sweet lady. I don’t know or have her family’s address to mail the recently made picture of her, do you? We are happy Scott Pusser is home from the hospital. We pray Adrain Pusser’s hand will heal with physical therapy. Daddies and sons need each other while mothers pray in the distance. God bless sick friends and neighbors. God is watching us from a distance. Special hugs and prayers to the family of Jason King for such comforting words back to me.

one remembered Mary Lou (Stanfill) Stanford. Yes, our entire high school class of 1950 that are still here remembers Mary Lou. I believe that she was at our 50th reunion at Chester County High School. We have a class reunion every year at Arnold’s Restaurant in Henderson on the first Saturday in October at noon. Mary Lou, we are glad that you take the Chester County Independent and keep up with us. Hope you and your spouse can come next year. Please send us your address.

The descendents of J.W. and Montie Mae McEarl will have their yearly family gathering on Oct. 30 at the home of Bobby and Sarah McEarl. Rebecca Williams and son, Elijah, 5, of Nashville, were here visiting their Uncle Lou Williams. On Saturday, they were treated to a fishing trip. They made several catches that day. Mr. Lou couldn’t decide if five was too young to be out on the boat (loss of interest), or at 76 too hard to keep up with! Our community meal will be at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 9. Bring a covered dish and a drink and join us. The mission group has a tentative date of Nov. 9 for their next trip to Appalachia. There will be a baptismal service following preaching at Hopewell Baptist Church on Oct. 31. Our heartfelt sympathy is extended to the family
and friends of Rayford Mayfield and Olivia Newman.

Please keep in mind all the little ghosts and goblins that will be out and about. If you have news to share, call 989-7523. Thought for the week: Take time for all things. Great haste makes great waste. Have a great week. Here’s witching you a bootiful, screaming good Halloween! Remember the Holyween event at 5 p.m. Oct. 30 at Faith Baptist Church.

Only Yesterday “Chester Farmers Turn Out To Hear Plans For Rural Electrification” From the files of the Chester County Independent October 31, 1940 “Chester Farmers turn out to hear plans for rural electrification” “Farm men and women from more than a dozen Chester County communities interested in obtaining the benefits of rural electrification, attended a meeting at the courthouse here Tuesday afternoon to hear R. B. Hicks, agricultural engineer in rural electrification for the Extension Service, and Harold Sartin of the Southwest Electric Membership Corporation explain how current could be provided them under the new low revenue guarantee of $8.50 per pole line mile. “Don’t worry about how far you are from a line now, or even where the current will come from,” Mr. Sartin, line foreman and assistant superintendent for the Southwest Cooperative, told the audience. “If enough sign up minimum bill contracts, electricity will be brought to you.” “Draft No. 158 Gathers Fame as First Drawn in National Lottery” “Henderson and rest of the nation clustered close about radio receiving sets Tuesday to hear the first number drawn in the great national lottery to determine the priority in which Selective Service registrants will be called by local draft boards throughout the country to consider their availability for military service. That number, drawn by Secretary of War Stings and immediately announced over the radio by President Roosevelt – was serial No. 158 – and every holder of it in every draft board area in the U.S. automatically was assigned Order No. 1, slated to be the first classified in this area. “Chester Negro is First” As the number was announced, a woman in the audience in the huge Government auditorium in Washington where the drawing was conducted,
uttered a low scream, plainly audible over the radio – her 21-year-old son had that number. Here in Henderson, folks turned hastily to copies of last week’s Independent to check up on Chester County’s No. 158.

Dean would demand larger financial returns. Many fans were interested in her identity, but she was given only the title, “The Biograph Girl.” A new actress from Canada, Mary Pickford, was later given the title. Florence earned the reputation of being a willing and hard working actress with fine dramatic ability. Carl Laemmle, owner of the Independent Motion Picture Company (IMP), made a lucrative offer to Florence that she accepted. She was blacklisted by the Motion Picture Trust headed by Thomas A. Edison. Lawrence and her husband, director Harry Solter, joined Laemmle’s company as featured players. In 1910, Laemmle pulled off a publicity stunt that drastically changed the fledgling movie-making industry. He started a rumor that the extremely popular actress was killed by a streetcar. The story received great coverage in the country. At an opportune moment, Laemmle advertised nationally that Florence Lawrence was not dead, but was working
for him. Suddenly, everyone knew who she was. Laemmle then arranged a public appearance for her in St. Louis, Mo., where she was met by huge crowds of fans. Lawrence appeared under her own name in her first IMP film “The Broken Oath” in 1910 and in subsequent films. The result was increased earnings for her and for Laemmle. She was the biggest star in the business. Soon, the names of more actors and actresses appeared in the
media. The star system was born. The first movie made was “In Old California” in 1910 by the Biograph Company. It was produced and directed by D. W. Griffith, and starred Marion Leonard and Frank Powell. Thought of the week: “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Abraham Lincoln Have a great week and keep smiling.

Now or later Some years ago there was a television commercial representing an auto repair service. The catch phrase they used to emphasize the importance of making the repair when it was small rather than waiting until it was large was, ‘pay now or pay later.’ Their point was you can pay a little now or pay a lot later. Grief is always painful and difficult, and it does take effort on the mourner to travel through to their new life. It is never pleasant and perhaps that is why some people choose to deny them, and thus choose to prolong their healing and their move forward. Try as we might we cannot run from our pain and suffering. When we were children more than likely we were taught by our guardians not to procrastinate, but what needs to be completed to do it now not to delay. Healing requires we walk through the valley of death or loss and change that we did not ask, desire, or prepare. This transition requires us to move forward and moving forward demands living with pain, acknowledging the reality of our loss as well

DAVID COY as our feelings in relation to our loss. Doug Manning in his book “Don’t Take My Grief Away From Me” correctly states for time to assist in our healing requires choice and will. We must choose to move forward in our healing and willing to work through what is necessary to successfully make the transition in acceptance of our new changed life. We will need support from family, friends, church group, or professionals. It will be easier if we find someone whom we may share our experience on a frequent and regular basis if needed and desired. This will make our journey easier. Our life will also be enriched if we educate ourselves in grief and mourning. This is Sunrise.

Diet suggested as autism treatment Dr. Shauna Young is a believer in the words of German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer who related the three steps of truth: “First, it is ridiculed; “Second, it is vigorously opposed; “Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” Young has been living through the first two stages of that evolution with regard to her views on how diet can affect Autism Spectrum Disorders, but feels the third stage is just around the corner. “When it comes to our research, we’re a bit like the square peg in the round hole,” said Young, Chief Medical Advisor for the NoHarm Foundation (www.noharmfoundation.o rg). “It’s not that other doctors aren’t gaining interest in what we’re doing with regard to diet and autism, and it isn’t that the results aren’t remarkable. It’s more that the medical community just isn’t accustomed to something this new, and the established protocols for publishing findings just don’t fit when dealing with something truly unique like this. Traditionally, findings like ours would be an offshoot of previous research, and publishing an article about it would include lots of references to other articles, which is the standard. But what we’re doing has both the virtue and the vice of not having ever been tried before, and there is just no mechanism in the bureaucracy set up for what we’ve discovered. “At face value, we’re using our Spectrum Balance Protocol Diet to
control disorders that have baffled researchers for decades. How do you present results like that to an established medical community without a chorus of disbelief, especially when our research isn’t based on anything that’s come before? So, in spite of the resistance from the medical community, I’m taking the track record we’ve accomplished over the past five years out directly to the families of autistic children because they deserve to have this information now - independent of the ‘process’ that the system expects”. Young’s approach to helping autistic individuals primarily using just food, does not involve expensive drugs or large amounts of supplements, and it does not promote specific products or treatment services. Instead, it simply suggests a highly specific diet that is designed to reduce the unwanted symptoms of autism. “The problem we have theorized has actually been indirectly supported with plentiful historic third party research. We have located many studies that attribute manganese sensitivity as being one of the root causes of various neurological disorders, which looked suspiciously to me like the symptoms of autism. Since the problem occurs most specifically within the brain chemistry, neither blood nor hair testing alone will necessarily reveal and/or confirm this condition,” she said. “Specifically, we are talking here about individual sensitivity to manganese, and not a syn-
Halloween scary for children, parents Randy O’Brien Tennessee News Service
Parents are being urged to observe some safety rules this Halloween, like making sure every child has a flashlight, a mask that doesn’t restrict vision and a costume that fits without dragging on the ground. Experts also advise that parents inspect all the goodies, throwing out food that has a torn or loose wrapper.

This case occurred in the Four-Way Community on October 23. State and Federal officials are presently involved in tracing the origin of the outbreak. “To prevent spread of the disease, a state Federal quarantine was placed on a portion of the county.” “Weather holds key to voter turnout” “Old man weather will determine whether voters turn out in Chester County for next Tuesday’s elections, it was predicted

With much of the cotton and soybeans still in the fields, good weather will mean farmers will be in the fields gathering their crops instead of taking time to vote.

drome that can be applicable or susceptible to all children or adults. I often use the analogy of a person being allergic to a food such as peanuts: As one person could eat a pound of peanuts and have no ill effects and the next person may experience a violent allergic response to a miniscule exposure, it is obvious that the response produced by the peanuts is far more important in the equation than the amount of peanuts that might be measured and quantified in one’s body.” She acknowledged that there is much disagreement and conflicting information in nutritional/toxicology research fields as to what actual levels of ingestion and retention of manganese is even considered “safe” above very trace amounts. However, she said her team has found numerous studies internationally that have pointed to negative consequences suspected from manganese levels that are currently considered to be within acceptable standards. That means that children eating what could be considered a healthy diet could still be ingesting
enough manganese to affect their brain chemistries in a negative fashion. “We’ve designed a diet based on food choices that are healthy and inviting, inexpensive and simple to prepare that limit the amount of manganese and specific anti-nutrients in the body,” Young added. “It is this diet that we supply in detail for free on the Foundation’s website, which is helping many people — not all — achieve better outcomes than their current regimens on medications. We’ve seen it and we’ve documented it, and now we want to share those results, no matter how unlikely they may seem, with the families of autistic children. As these protocols involve no drugs or medications of any kind, they do “no harm” whatsoever. There is nothing to lose and no medical risk involved with this regimen. And for the families all around the world who have seen the differences in their children from applying these methods, we know that the very least these protocols offer is new hope.”

Did you know? Making a Jack-o-lantern last Longer Cash for Clunkers Perhaps no government program drew more adulation (and ire) in 2009 than the Cash for Clunkers program. Nearly everyone who was aware of the program had a strong opinion as to its merits in the early stages. Under the program’s guidelines, anyone in the United States who turned in their old vehicle and purchased a new fuel efficient vehicle was eligible for a government tax credit between $3,500-$4,500 toward the purchase of that new automobile. After initially approving $1 billion for the program, the government soon discovered the program’s popularity was overwhelming, forcing either cancellation of the program for lack of funds or the Congressional approval of additional funds to keep the program afloat. The latter option proved victorious, and in early August an additonal $2 billion was approved to keep the program going. In those early stages, the most popular cars among those purchased under the program were the Ford Focus, Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Toyota Prius,and the Toyota Camry.
Foreclosures in 2009 According to a survey from the National Association of Realtors, the median home price in the second quarter of 2009 rose 4 percent compared to the first quarter, increasing to $174,100 from $167,300. That increase from first quarter to second quarter is significant for the sagging economy, as it is a possible indicator that the economy is on the rebound. Lower interest rates and first-time buyer tax credits were likely contributors to the higher median prices for homes in the second quarter. However, when compared to the same period a year ago, median home prices fell a record 15.6 percent in 2009. Much of this record decline can be credited to foreclosures. While foreclosures haven’t quite gripped the headlines in 2009 like they had in late 2008, that is not due to a reduction in the number of homes in foreclosure. In fact, the first six months of 2009 witnessed a record 1.53 million properties in the foreclosure process according to RealtyTrac. The total number of 1.91million foreclosure filings in the first half of 2009 translates to 1 in every 84 U.S. properties receiving at least one filing during that period. Though that number is high, banks repossessed less than 400,000 of those properties during that time.
Life expectancy rates Life expectancy refers to the projected amount of years the general population will live. In the 16th through 18th centuries, individuals were expected to live until the age of 40. Even as early as the beginning of the 20th century, an age of 45 was thought to be a long life, considering individuals from classical Rome and Greece only lived until about age 28. Thanks to modern medicine and better disease prevention in most developed areas of the world, the current world average is 67.2 years. In much of North America, the average is 77.5 to 80. Women tend to have a lower mortality rate than men. Geographic location, climate, availability of medical care, and diet play a large role in life expectancy. Black or African populations tend to have lower life expectancy rates due to war, starvation and disease in countries of origin. Residents of the People’s Republic of China boast the world’s highest life expectancy at 84.4 years.
Jack-o-lanterns are a staple of Halloween decorations. Making one last throughout the season is a trick of the trade even some veteran carvers struggle with. People young and old head to pumpkin patches to pick out the ideal pumpkins. Some prefer perfectly round ones, while others like tall, oblong ones. Whatever the decision, the majority of these pumpkins will be brought home and turned into jack-o-lanterns, or pumpkins carved with a design. The key to having a jack-o-lantern ready and prime for Halloween haunting is carving it at the right time. Carved pumpkins will not last forever, so timing it right is key. In general, carved pumpkins will last for about a week if kept in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. A pumpkin left in midday sun and heat will likely rot or mold much more quickly. For those planning on carving pumpkins for Halloween, it’s best to do so a day or two before the big day. This way the design will be crisp and fresh. There also are ways to increase the jack-o-lantern’s longevity. Some of the best methods involve inhibiting mold growth and dehydration of the pumpkin. One trick is to submerge the cut pumpkin in a bucket of water for a few minutes after carving to moisten the flesh. Others say that spreading petroleum jelly on the inside of the carved pumpkin will help. Commercial chemical products that reduce the decay of the pumpkin may be effec-
tive as well. One can also try using a bleach-and-water solution to keep mold from growing. Those who will simply allow nature to take its course should keep the pumpkin as cool as possible and remove as much of the flesh from the inside when carving. However, because no method is foolproof, the jack-olantern will most likely not make it more than a week, unless the goal is to discover new strains of mold growth. For those who want a permanently ghoulish jack-olantern, it’s best to purchase a plastic or ceramic variety instead.
High Fructose Corn Syrup might get a sweet new name
Trick or Treat?
High fructose corn syrup has been getting bad press for a while now. Food manufacturers are pulling it out of some products, and everyone from soccer moms to nutritionists are blaming obesity rates on consumption of corn syrup. Is this sweetener really at the root of obesity? While the nutritional value or detriment of corn syrup is still open for debate, companies that manufacture high fructose corn syrup are trying to rename the product to give it a better public relations spin. The Corn Refiners Association wants to change its name to corn sugar, after consumption of the sweetener reached a 20-year low. The corn syrup industry is already using the name in advertising and seeking the approval for the name change from the Food and Drug Administration. Such approval could take as long as two years. The Corn Refiners Association claims sugar is sugar, whether it comes from sugar cane or corn. The body uses it the same
way, and corn syrup and cane sugar are nutritionally the same. That means the products that contain sugar are just as likely to contribute to obesity as those with corn syrup. Sugars are found in many products, including cereals, pickles, breads, and even pet foods. Nutritionists urge individuals to cut down on consumption of all sugary products for a healthier diet. It is still unsure whether “corn sugar” will be adopted and whether consumers will be “fooled” by the name change. If history repeats itself, it just may be a boon to the corn industry. When “prunes” were changed to “dried plums,” the fruit was more warmly received. Although public relations officials deny that the former Kentucky Fried Chicken was changed to KFC to limit usage of the word “fried,” connoting unhealthy foods, the name change did help alter the image of the chicken, though how much or how little is likely impossible to calculate.
There are many traditions surrounding Halloween, the most popular of which is trickor-treating. This custom may be traced back to Ireland. On Halloween, Irish peasants would beg the rich for food. For those who refused, the peasants would play a practical joke. So, in an effort to avoid being tricked, the rich would hand out cookies, candy and fruit — a practice that evolved into trick-or-treating today.

Dear Editor, Beware! Watch the cash register as you check out. Almost every week, I am charged the regular price on a sale item because it has not been changed in the computer. That’s happened twice in Henderson during the past few days, and occurs regularly in Jackson stores and other areas. The one at the register is not to blame, and I hope each incident is either an accident or is just negligence. Many people are paying more because they don’t pay attention. Beware and WATCH. Paying attention may save paying money. Ben S. Flatt Henderson
Hummingbirds’ sudden departure signals autumn Someone once asked me if I believed in reincarnation – and, if so, what creature I would like to return as in another life. I do not believe the human spirit after death can reside in an animal. This would be a step backward, no matter how noble the beast. However, if I had the power to assume an animal’s form, I would choose to become a 500-lb. hummingbird. A hummingbird of such proportions would be a formidable critter. The normal sized ruby-throated hummingbirds that throng around my wife’s sugar syrup feeders are fearless fighters capable of taking on larger birds, cats and even dogs that encroach on their feeding territory. One weighing 500 pounds with a 12-ft. wingspan would be master of the sky, an iridescently plumed monster with a rapier for a beak. In reality, the hummingbirds zipping through the summer heat on our farm are miracles of the Lord’s creation, tiny as they are. As I write this column on the first day of September, I know the flock of hummingbirds raised here this spring will suddenly disappear in two weeks. They’ll wait for a storm front to catch a north wind and wing south toward wintering grounds in lush tropical settings. It will become strangely calm and quiet around our patio. Instead of the squeaky twittering of the hummers as they chase and dogfight around the feeders, we will hear only an autumn breeze soughing through the yellow maple tree leaves and the cawing of distant crows. For months the hummers have entertained us in the evenings and on weekends. Pulling our lawn chairs near the feeders, we’ve become part of the scenery for the fearless fliers. They buzz around our heads, perch within inches of our faces and make us feel part of their wonderful aerial chaos. This has been an excellent breeding season for hummingbirds. In April, they began to mate and nest. One morning while I sat behind the farmhouse trying to tempt a wild turkey gobbler into range of my shotgun, I witnessed a female hummer building her nest at the tip-end of a scaly bark hickory tree limb. She zipped to and from
the nickel-sized basin that would hold her clutch of eggs, carrying spider webs and lichen. Once, I moved to ease a root that was jabbing me in the back. She detected my shift of position and flew down to hover in front on my face. I felt the breeze from her blurry wing beats, an exhalation of life force from such a diminutive member of God’s creation. Apparently assured I would pose no threat to her young, she set off again to gather nestbuilding materials. The hummingbird hatch was a big one. In early June, we started glimpsing half-grown birds around the feeders. It seems this year’s crop went heavily toward females. One group of them, perhaps from the same nest, we named the Four Sisters. They dominated a single feeder in the flower garden, four lovely little lasses politely perched around the rubycolored glass bulb, sipping nectar. They guarded the feeder as a squadron. The swooping foursome drove off interloping birds. After the chase, they would return to the feeder and array themselves around d it, dipping their beaks into the syrupy goodness and recharging their internal dynamos. The Four Sisters have grown since they first appeared. Next year, if they survive the migrations and time in the wintering grounds, they might return and nest where they were born. Another generation of graceful and colorful birds will be propagated and attracted to our feeders, as if we didn’t have enough hummers already. They will be missed in a few weeks. One evening, they’ll swoop and chase and twitter in joy around the feeders. They next day, they will be gone – their absence a harbinger of the change of seasons. If I were a 500-lb. hummingbird, I would go with them. Who wouldn’t want to spend the winter in the tropics, drinking nectar and playing aerial tag? But I will be forced to endure the snow and frigid winds, merely a man waiting for the warmth of April and straining to hear the hum of beating wings in a new season of flowering growth and possibilities.
Healthcare reform and the election: Money, power, and death By Jane M. Orient, M.D. Association of American Physicians and Surgeons
Many of the issues swirling around before this election are mere distractions. At its center is the giant power struggle between the ruling elite and productive Americans. The appealing message from our rulers is “empowerment.” But this does not mean empowerment of the uninsured, the unemployed, food stamp recipients, illegal aliens, and other needy persons. It means consolidation of power at the top, and the disempowerment of any potential rivals: successful industries, prosperous professionals, even small businesses that are still solvent and independent. Like small doctors’ practices. Giving people a handout instead of a hand up never makes them stronger. It makes them more dependent, and turns them into an army of pawns who can be counted on to do the will of those who feed them. They reliably vote for their supposed benefactors. And some of them also register illegals to vote, disrupt town halls or tea parties, key cars displaying signs for challengers, steal campaign signs, disseminate slander, and try to intimidate people. If things get really bad, they could become an army of rioters, looters, and worse. The productive Americans who work every day, mind their own business, take care of their families, obey the law, and make the country function are being bled through redistributive taxes, which primarily benefit those who will soon be strong enough to trample their liberties and reduce them to poverty. The tax donors will have to cooperate with the rulers, and censor their own protests—or else. NPR sent a message through Juan Williams. If they can do it to someone with an audience as large as his, nobody is safe from the thought police. Nowhere is the threat to professionals and those whom they serve more apparent than in ObamaCare—if you read the actual law and not the glossy flyers sent by Medicare at taxpayer expense. The requirements of the law are so costly and onerous that most physicians, if they continue to practice at all, will be forced into “accountable care organizations.” Accountable to whom? To the System, that is to the elite “decision makers.” Accountable for what? For reducing “costs” (that means spending on medical care), and for implementing “best practices.” The first target is the “elderly” (those over the age of 65), and others who might be near the “end of life,” since that is where most of the medical money goes. Not incidentally, judging by the crowd at tea parties, older Americans can also be a problem just because they know something of American history and have lived most of their lives in a free society. We have heard that ObamaCare is funded partly by redistributing Medicare “savings” of some $500 billion over 10 years. This is less than half a truth. If the 10year period starts with full implementation in 2014 rather than in 2010, the amount is $800 billion, states Peter Ferrara in his book The ObamaCare Disaster. And over the first 20 years of implementation, the amount rises to nearly $3 trillion. ObamaCare advocates claim they can do this by cutting out the 30 percent of services that are “unnecessary,” as determined by them. A knee replacement, for example, probably doesn’t save your life—it is not “necessary” to be able to walk or to be pain free. And it will also cut out “fraud”—which increasingly is defined to include “unnecessary” services, as well as those coded incorrectly or not meeting the established “standard of care.” There are no death panels. And no euthanasia. In fact, the law takes care to specify that physicians and institutions are protected against discrimination or retaliation for refusing to participate in physician-assisted suicide.
However, this protection explicitly does not extend to refusal to participate in overmedication or withdrawal of treatment or food and water. More ominously, we already see state laws proposed to immunize physicians from criminal or civil liability, or discipline for carrying out the terms of a POLST form (Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment), though they may be disciplined for failure to do so. Keep in mind that these days “life-sustaining treatment” includes food and water, especially if “artificially” administered, say because the patient is too heavily medicated to be able to swallow. Such “palliative sedation” is a new subject for discussion in the medical journals that have been advocating Obama-style “reform” for decades. No, the sedative doesn’t kill the patient—it just keeps her more comfortable while she is dehydrating, and also keeps her from taking deep breaths or moving around. So within two weeks she is dead—if not from the underlying disease, then from dehydration, or the pneumonia or blood clots resulting from immobility. It’s not a very long stretch to envision doctors being prosecuted for failing to carry out patients’ alleged wishes for early death through sedated dehydration. Before it comes to that, doctors will just be co-opted into the System, or marginalized as being “greedy,” “disruptive,” or “paranoid” if they insist on following the Oath of Hippocrates. In the days just before the election, incumbents are desperate. They will do anything to prevent reasoned debate on the central issue of where America is headed—toward the consolidation of central government power. They may even admit to minor errors and promise to “tweak” fundamentally flawed laws like ObamaCare. Look for a blitz of attack ads, false accusations, and outright election fraud. “Reformers” talk a lot about “fragmentation”—of things like medical care. Their real fear is fragmentation of their power. That’s what a thorough housecleaning this election would mean. It would give Americans who believe in our founding principles a chance to take back our country. Failure to seize this opportunity probably spells the death of freedom–and literal death, for the most vulnerable first.

Red Cross, Pitney Bowes team up for “Touch of Home” The American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes Inc. are teaming up to deliver holiday cards to service members, their families and veterans, many of whom will be far from home this holiday season. Now in its third year, the Holiday Mail for Heroes program provides Americans with the opportunity to extend holiday greetings and thanks to service members and veterans. Between Nov. 2 and Dec. 7, the public is invited to send a “touch of home” through holiday cards that contain messages of cheer and appreciation. The Red Cross and Pitney Bowes will then screen cards for hazardous materials, sort and package the cards, and deliver them to military bases and hospitals, veteran’s hospitals and other locations during the holidays. Pitney Bowes is providing all screening, packaging and shipping at no charge. The Red Cross will utilize hundreds of volunteers to sort and box cards for delivery to service men and women, vet-
erans and family members in November and December. “It’s an honor for our community to help make the holidays special for American heroes,” said Wanda Stanfill, Director of Community Outreach and Public Affairs. “The American Red Cross serves and supports members of the military, veterans, and their families by providing emergency communications, comfort and assistance each day. The Holiday Mail for Heroes program continues the Red Cross tradition of service to the armed forces.” Last year, with the help of Pitney Bowes, hundreds of volunteers screened, sorted and packaged cards that were delivered to military bases, veteran and military hospitals across the U.S. and around the world. “The men and women who serve our country in uniform deserve our thanks every single day, and sending just one card is all it takes to make a difference in the life of one of our nation’s heroes,” said Jon Love,
President of Pitney Bowes Government Solutions. “We are honored to participate in this important initiative again with the American Red Cross and look forward to helping the public say happy holidays and thank you.” Holiday cards should be addressed and sent to: Holiday Mail for Heroes; P.O. Box 5456; Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456. Please be sure to affix adequate postage. Cards must be received no later than Dec. 7. Cards received after this date will be returned to senders. For reasons of processing and safety, participants are asked to refrain from sending “care packages,” monetary gifts, using glitter or including any inserts with the cards. Visit Redcross.org/holidaymail for a full list of recommended guidelines and best practices on the Holiday Mail for Heroes program.

Under the law no Social Security COLA for 2011 Monthly Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for more than 58 million Americans will not automatically increase in 2011, the Social Security Administration announced last week. The Social Security Act provides for an automatic increase in Social Security and SSI benefits if there is an increase in the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) from the third quarter of the last year a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) was determined to the third quarter of the current year. As determined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is no increase in the CPI-W from the third quarter of 2008, the last year a COLA was determined, to the third quarter of 2010, therefore, under existing law, there can be no COLA in 2011. Other changes that would normally take effect based on changes in the national average wage index also will not take effect in January 2011. Since there is no COLA, the statute also prohibits a change in the maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security tax as well as the retirement earnings test exempt amounts. These amounts will remain unchanged in 2011. Information about Medicare changes for 2011, when available, will be found at www.Medicare.gov. The Department of Health and Human Services has not
yet announced if there will be any Medicare premium changes for 2011. Should there be an increase in the Medicare Part B premium, the law contains a “hold harmless” provision that protects more than 70 percent of Social Security beneficiaries from paying a higher Part B premium, in order to avoid reducing their net Social Security benefit. Those not protected include higher income beneficiaries subject to an income-adjusted Part B premium and beneficiaries newly entitled to Part B in 2011. In addition, almost 20 percent of bene-
ficiaries have their Medicare Part B premiums paid by state medical assistance programs and thus will see no change in their Social Security benefit. The state will be required to pay any Medicare Part B premium increase. For additional information about the 2011 COLA, go to www.socialsecurity.gov/co la. For additional information about changes in the national average wage index, go to www.socialsecurity.gov/OACT/COLA/A WI.html.

SSppoorrttss Special teams spell CCHS victory
Thursday, October 28, 2010
Chester County’s special teams were superb Friday night in the Eagles’ home football game against Bolivar Central. The Tigers’ special teams were good, but not good enough with three major miscues that allowed CCHS to hold on late for a 21-20 District 14-AA victory. Chester County scored on a botched punt by the Tigers in the second quarter, as well as a 53-yard punt return. The Tigers missed a potential gametying extra point try in the fourth quarter, not once but twice, then saw a potential game-winning field goal go wide left in the final minute. The win assured the Eagles of at least third place in the eight-team district, and probably locked them in to what would be a school-record third straight state playoff
berth. CCHS, now 5-4 overall and 5-1 in the district, beat Bolivar for the third straight year despite being out-gained, unofficially, 315 yards to only 170 for the Eagles. The Tigers also had 19 first downs to only nine for CCHS.
However, special teams forced Bolivar to drive 78, 78, and 75 yards for its three scores, while Chester County had one scoring drive of 75 yards, plus a 53-yard punt return for touchdown, and scored on a botched punt attempt by the Tigers. In the fourth quarter, after marching from their own 16-yard line to the Eagles’ 17, the Tigers converted on a fourth-down

try giving them four more downs with 3:37 left. But on second down, CCHS senior Derek Platt sacked Bolivar quarterback B.J. Neely for a five-yard loss. A four-yard run on third down set up a fourth down and 11 situation. Following a timeout, the Tigers lined up for the kick but a high snap from center threw off the timing of the play, and kicker Collin Howell missed wide-left on an offbalance try. “When we got on that goal line, we came together. We said for our community we have to stop them,” said Platt. “I’m just See CCHS, Page 3-B

Chester County’s Ryan Turner breaks free for yet another long punt return for touchdown, helping the Eagles to a 21-20 victory over Bolivar Central Friday at Eagle Stadium.
Victory Friday could mean first-ever home playoff game The Chester County Eagles have likely already gained an at-large TSSAA state football playoff berth with a 5-4 record, 5-1 in the district. The official announcement of that will not be made until noon Saturday.
However, a victory Friday for CCHS against Liberty Tech at Eagle Stadium would put a lock on the post-season and could give the Eagles home field for the first time ever. Liberty, 7-2, 5-1, lost
last week to Lexington which clinched the District 14-AA championship, while CCHS was defeating Bolivar Central. Last year the Eagles were beaten by Liberty, giving the Crusaders the District title, and relegating CCHS
to a three-way tie for second. Chester County has plenty of film on the Crusaders and coaches worked overtime over the weekend to develop a game plan. The Lexington/Liberty game certainly showed Coach
Jeff Cupples and staff where they need to attack the Crusaders. “We need to be physical with them, that’s our challenge,” affirmed Cupples. “Defensively they play a base defense. They rarely get out of it, so we want to
take advantage of that.” Cupples stressed also the importance of execution and matching Liberty’s play calls. “We have to tackle well in space, keep our containment, and play fast and aggressive.”
Heartbreaker sends Eaglettes packing

Lauren Lay refuses to give up control of the soccer ball in Chester County’s region tournament game Thursday night in Lexington.
Chester County rallied from a two-goal deficit to force overtime, but eventually fell to Lexington 3-2 in girls’ high school soccer Thursday in Lexington. The loss in the region tournament quarterfinals ended the Eaglettes’ season. “Our girls never quit, that has been a staple of ours all season,” said CCHS head coach Jason Judd. “I’m so proud of the effort our girls put forth, unfortunately we came up short. It has been a great season.” CCHS trailed 2-0 at half-time, however, as the second half played out, the momentum shifted Chester County’s way. Randa Hart scored
Defending TranSouth champion FHU Lady Lions open Saturday The Freed-Hardeman Lady Lions’ basketball team did the unthinkable last season, winning the TranSouth Conference championship by upsetting No. 1 Union University on their home floor and becoming the first road team to win the tournament championship in TSAC history. The Lady Lions open the 2010-11 season at 2 p.m. Saturday hosting Asbury College at the FHU Sports Center. However, as head coach Dale Neal enters his 17th season at FHU, there are some questions to be answered as the new sea-
son approaches. Gone are four-time NAIA All-American Jana Cross and Tara Deatheridge, who was also an All-American and a four-year starter. While those are the only two losses of players who saw significant action, their production and experience will prove difficult to replace. This year, expect the offense to run through senior Meribeth Boehler, a first-team all-conference selection and second-team All-American in 2010. Boehler, who was second on the team in scoring (14.1 ppg) and rebounding

(6.7 rpg), came on strong during conference play and averaged 18.4 points during the month of February. Returning in the backcourt is a trio of talented guards in Hannah Parsley, Whitney Johnson and Natalie Shumpert. Like Boehler, Parsley (5-8; Jr.) exploded in February, averaging 15.1 points per game during the month. Parsley proved deadly from well beyond the arc, knocking down many deep 3-pointers while shooting 39.2 percent for the season. Johnson (5-4; Sr.) and Shumpert (5-4; So.) have very similar styles of play with their quickness and ability to break defenses down off the dribble. Both are also tenacious defenders, combining for 108 steals last season. Also returning in the frontcourt alongside Boehler are Maria Bagwell (5-7; So.) and Summer Waggoner (5-10; So.). Bagwell was a pleasant surprise last season, See FHU, Page 3-B
CCHS’s first goal off an assist from Mikayla Whitman with 12 minutes left. Continuing to battle, they knotted the score at the three minute mark on a goal by Darby Miskelly. Alas, the host “Tigerettes,” as they used to be called, got the gamewinner in the extra period. Jessica Weeks had five saves in the first half for CCHS, and eight in the second period, plus three more in overtime. On Oct. 18, CCHS hosted Jackson Central Merry in the first round of the district, winning 10-1. CCHS had two goals each by Piper Davis, Baylie Pruett, and Beka Heaston, and single tallies by Brook Flowers, Miskelly, Hart, and Taylor Fortune. Assisting on goals were Miskelly, Hart, and Pruett. Weeks was named to the All-District first team, and Pruett to the second team.

Lion soccer wins fourth straight The Freed-Hardeman Lions avoided what could have been a letdown match, getting a 4-1 win over Brescia University in a non-conference match on Saturday night. The win improves FHU to 11-3 on the season, leaving the Lions just two wins away from tying the school record for wins. Simbarashe Zvaita opened scoring early off a well-placed pass from Kenniel Hyde from the left side, finding Zvaita on his run toward the right post. Zvaita easily beat the keeper to the far post to give FHU an early lead. The Lions finally got a little bit of breathing room in the 51st minute thanks to a Brescia own goal. Hyde ripped a shot from left of the goal that ricocheted off of Nordine Amlaiky, hitting the post and going across the line. Brescia narrowed the gap in the 77th minute when Eurodger Bargblor took a short through ball in the box and slipped a shot past FHU keeper Alexandre Girodo, breaking the Lions’ three-match scoreless streak.
FHU, however, wasted little time and struck back in the 79th minute when Pasun Zarif sent a through ball to Ryan Engineer who touched it past a defender and struck a hard shot to the right post. The Lions added a final score in the 88th minute when Joshua Mankey was fouled in the box. His penalty kick was stopped by Brescia keeper Gilbert Camacho, but Mankey collected the rebound and sent it to the left post for the goal. Brescia outshot FHU 22-14 and held a slight 109 edge in shots on goal. Freed-Hardeman also clinched a spot in the conference tournament due to Cumberland (Tenn.) University’s loss to MidContinent (Ky.) University earlier in the day. FHU hosts MidContinent at 7 p.m. Saturday.
Lions roll Lyon The Freed-Hardeman Lion soccer team kept on rolling, picking up another big win on Oct. 19 by defeating Lyon College, 30.
The match was evenlyplayed for much of the first half, with each team taking five shots. But it was the Lions that broke through first, opening the scoring in the 42nd minute on a header by Hyde that the freshman placed perfectly into the upper right corner of the net. Hyde’s goal was set up by a header from Zvaita following a corner kick by Dorigo from the left corner. Dorigo sent it to the far post where Zvaita headed it forward to Hyde. The Scots responded by controlling the run of play for the first 25 minutes of the second half, outshooting FHU 10-0 during that stretch of time. But Girodo had an answer every time Lyon had a good opportunity, making four diving saves to help the Lions hang onto their one-goal lead. Lyon outshot FHU for the match, 17-11, but the Lions held a 9-8 edge in shots on goal. Girodo saved seven shots for Freed-Hardeman in posting his fourth clean sheet of the season and third in a row.
Hyde receives TSAC men’s soccer honor Freed-Hardeman’s Kenniel Hyde has been named the TranSouth Conference Men’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for the week ending Oct. 17. Hyde, a freshman forward from Kingston, Jamaica, scored two goals and had two assists in a 7-0 win over Trevecca Nazarene. The margin of victory was the largest ever for the Lions in a conference game. Hyde, who missed the first three matches of the season, now has six goals and six assists for the year. He has four goals and two assists in four conference matches thus far.
Youth Football slates Homecoming Saturday The Chester County Youth Football League has scheduled its annual Homecoming games and season-ending fundraiser for 10 a.m. Saturday at Eagle Stadium. The first games begin at 10 a.m., with
the festivities to follow at approximately 11:15 a.m., with the tackle games immediately thereafter. Admission is $2 per person, and this is the only fundraiser of the year for the Youth Football League.
FHU Baseball holds annual Alumni and Family Day The Freed-Hardeman University baseball team hosted its annual Alumni and Family Day on Saturday, Oct. 16, and welcomed back 21 former players for the alumni home run derby and alumni scrimmage. “It was a great weekend,” Estes said. “We couldn’t have asked for better weather. We had a good turnout of potential future players at our high school showcase.” Josh Bost (2001-2002) was the star of the day, as Estes put it, hitting 10 home runs to win the derby and adding a grand slam in the alumni game to help his team to a 7-4 win. Trae Luttrell, who just wrapped up his career in the spring, earned the win while current FHU assistant coach J.D. Flowers showed his versatility by picking up the save. Flowers played shortstop for the Lions from 20022005 and ranks eighth in career batting average. The day also featured a
high school showcase and intersquad scrimmage as well as a fish fry. “We had a huge turnout, and everyone had a great time. It was great
to see future, past and current Lions together with their families,” said Estes. “We have already started planning for next year to make it even better.”

Freed-Hardeman’s Whitney Newby, left, and Julie Bracknell battle for control of the ball with Lyon’s Kristin Maas, Oct. 19 at the Josh Riley Soccer Complex on the FHU campus. The teams battled to a 0-0 tie.
Lady Lion soccer ties wins record It took a few tries, but the Freed-Hardeman Lady Lions finally picked up their school-record tying ninth win on Saturday evening, 1-0. Whitney Newby’s penalty kick in the 68th minute proved to be the difference as FHU improved to 9-4-3 on the season. The win tied the school record for wins in a season set in 2008. It also improved on the record for most shutouts in a season with the team’s 10th this year. Shelby Murray was fouled in the box after dribbling around three defenders to set up Newby’s kick, which beat Brescia keeper Kelsey Cromwell to the upper left corner. Though it was FHU’s only goal, the Lady Lions had plenty of chances throughout the match. A Newby goal in fifth minute disallowed on an offsides penalty. Murray’s shot from left of
the goal was deflected by Cromwell and Newby put it in on the rebound, but the celebration was cut short on the offsides call. Newby had solid strike inside box to left post in 53rd minute but Brescia keeper made a leaping save to keep the ball out of the net. Murray was again fouled just outside the box in 77th minute, but her free kick sailed just over the crossbar. FHU had another quality chance in the 71st minute as Morgan Walls sent a well-placed cross from the right side where Brittny Johnson onetouched it toward toward the far post, but the shot missed just wide. For the match, the Lady Lions outshot Brescia 247 with a 14-5 advantage in shots on goal. Freed-Hardeman gets a long break before finishing out its regular season by hosting Cumberland University at 5 p.m. Nov.
Scoreless with Lyon The frame hasn’t been too kind to the FreedHardeman Lady Lion soccer team recently. Nikki Ceeney’s longrange shot in the 88th minute ricocheted off the crossbar, keeping the match scoreless. That’s how it ended up as FHU and Lyon College played to a 0-0 tie on Tuesday night at the Josh Riley Soccer Complex. It was the second straight scoreless tie for the Lady Lions, who drew with Trevecca Nazarene University on the previous Friday night in a match that saw FHU hit the frame twice late. Ceeney’s shot was only one of four taken by Freed-Hardeman, which was outshot 13-4 by the Scots. Senior goalkeeper Tiffany Harris was outstanding once again, stopping all 10 shots on frame to help FHU post its ninth shutout of the season.

Sensei J.D. Swanson, right, Fourth Degree DAN and originally from New Zealand, was a guest instructor Saturday at the Bob Bass Karate School. Swanson, now an assistant professor of biology at the University of Central Arkansas, has trained and instructed on several continents and emphasized that karate is the same all over the world. He hopes to influence his students to travel and train in other parts of the world, then return and use the knowledge gained to make their homes better places to live.
Montoya named Volleyball Player of the Week Sandra Montoya of Freed-Hardeman University has been named the TranSouth Athletic Conference Volleyball Player of the Week for the week ending Oct. 17. Montoya, a 5-foot-8 middle hitter from Antioquia, Columbia, helped lead the Lady Lions to a road win over confer-
ence-leading Union University in four sets, handing the Lady Bulldogs their first conference loss in the process. The junior transfer from Miami-Dade Community College had a solid allaround effort with 14 kills and a .452 hitting percentage, 16 digs, five aces and five total blocks.
Ferreira leads FHU volleyball over Martin The Freed-Hardeman Lady Lion volleyball team stayed hot, knocking off Martin Methodist College in four sets (25-16, 25-21, 21-25, 25-20) on Thursday night in the FHU Sports Center. FHU (9-7, 8-3) has now won three straight conference matches to move into sole possession of second place in the
TranSouth. It was also senior night for FHU’s lone senior, Claire Pennington, who had three kills and eight digs.
FHU sweeps Vecca On Oct. 19, the Lady Lions avenged an earlier loss to Trevecca Nazarene University by sweeping the Trojans on the road (25-21, 25-20, 25-20) at
the FHU Sports Center. Ferreira and Rice led the attack with 14 kills apiece while Sandra Montoya had seven. Montoya also recorded two aces. Setter Amber Turner continued her solid play with 41 assists. The trio of Ferreira, Rice and Montoya also did damage on defense, combining for 15 total blocks.
Men’s women’s golf programs return to Freed-Hardeman One year after bringing back cross country, FreedHardeman University will reinstate another sport to its athletic offerings men’s and women’s golf. Both programs were suspended following the 2004 season. The men’s program originally began in 1989; the women’s program started in 2000. “We are excited about the return of intercollegiate golf to FHU. By
adding men’s and women’s golf, we will be able to offer more opportunities for current students to participate in intercollegiate athletics,” said Athletic Director Mike McCutchen. “We will also be able to draw additional student-athletes who have a desire to participate in golf while attending FHU. We look forward to getting started this spring.”
Chickasaw Golf Club in Henderson will be the team’s home course. The teams will be led by John Armstrong, who is also the school’s sports information director. He was a member of the golf team for two years and was part of the team that shot a then-school record 310 in the spring of 1993. “I’m definitely thankful for the opportunity to help bring back our golf pro-
grams,” he said. “This will give us a chance to reach out to a group of studentathletes we haven’t necessarily been able to go after in the last several years. We’re looking forward to begin building a quality program.” The plan is for the teams to begin competing in the spring and to be eligible for post-season play beginning in the fall of 2011.

force the missed field goal try. Bolivar took the game’s opening kickoff and used almost seven minutes to go up 7-0 on Calvin Woods’ three-yard run, and Howell’s point after boot, pounding out 13 plays in the process. CCHS tried to counter on its first possession, but gave the ball up on downs at the Bolivar 10-yard line. But three plays later Ryan Turner returned a Tiger punt 53-yards for the Eagles’ first score. Brandon Rodriguez kicked the first of his three point-after tries, then pinned the Tigers at their own five-yard line with a very high kickoff. It paid dividends minutes later when Eagle Michael Pearson forced a fumbled punt attempt, and Tranard Cobb easily scooped up the ball and scooted nineyards for Chester County’s second score. In the third quarter, it appeared CCHS might take a two-touchdown
lead. Starting at their own 40-yard line they put together two first downs, reaching Bolivar’s 22-yard line when a fumble stopped the drive. Three plays later the visitors knotted the score. The Eagles next possession was their only scoring drive of the game, 75-yards in length culminated by a 23-yard touch-
down run by Toneal Bumpass. Rodriguez’ extra point was good again for a 21-14 lead. But right back came the Tigers, 75yards in less than four minutes including a fourth down and five conversion. However, the fateful extra point was wide left, not once but twice after the Eagles were caught with 12 defenders on the field.
CCHS so happy I was there to make that tackle. I commend the whole team for playing hard.” However, Platt admitted the Eagles were not expecting to be in the type of fight they had with the Tigers. Bolivar’s offense moved the ball at will at times against the CCHS defense before they came up with one final stop. “I told them, now’s the time. You’ve got to hold them right now,” CCHS head coach Jeff Cupples said about the final seconds. “The playoffs, the community, the senior class, all those things, and we made three good plays.” On Bolivar’s last four downs, Cupples changed gap assignments and told everyone to shoot the gaps in an attempt to reach the backfield and “blow up” Bolivar’s plays. It worked just enough to

FHU earning all-freshman honors after proving herself as a solid rebounder despite being an undersized post. Waggoner saw limited action as a freshman but her role is expected to grow this season. Neal is hoping for
immediate contributions from several newcomers including Karissa Dyer (63; Fr.), Katie Pate (6-2; Fr.), Shelby Taylor (5-3; Fr.) and Cynthia Woodward (5-7; Fr.). The Lady Lions’ schedule will, as always, be filled with nationallyranked opponents. Seven of their 14 non-conference opponents were in the top 25 in last season’s final national rating.

Inside CCHS by Meghan Black This past Friday, the Chester County Eagles played the Bolivar Tigers. The Eagles defeated the Tigers 21-20. This Friday will be their last home game of the season. They will be playing Liberty. Come out and support the team! This coming Friday there will be a career MEGHAN and college fair for the BLACK juniors and seniors at the high school. Students will receive information about various colleges and careers they may want to pursue. This past Saturday students at the high school had the option of taking the ACT. The next opportunity will be in December. See Ms. Goff for further details. This past Friday the Chester County Internal Thespian Society troop entered a one-act play in a one-act festival in Cookeville. Their one-act was called What Did You Say What for? and starred Becca Schucker and Zakkeus Bonds. The play came in third overall out of the 10 schools that competed. Becca Schucker won best actress out of all the plays and Zakkeus Bonds won All-Star Cast. This was the first time that Chester County has entered a one-act festival. Congratulations to Becca, Zakkeus, the Chester County ITS troop, Mr. Ricky Mitchell, and all those who contributed to the show!
By Ally Rogers Oct. 25-29 is Red Ribbon Week. This is a week to focus on drug and alcohol prevention. To encourage the students at the junior high, Celinda Davidson, our School Resource Officer came and spoke to the eighth-graders. Sgt. Renfroe also came and showed the drug trailer. Seventh-graders went through counseling classes as well. Thank you to all who helped our students realize the importance of making good choices and staying away from
By Amber Murley Students and teachers are enjoying Red Ribbon Week. Tomorrow (Friday) is “Character Day.” Thanks to PSO for the popcorn and Coke party. Joy McKinnon’s kindergarteners had fun counting the popcorn. Kindergarteners also started a unit on pumpkins this week. Students had fun counting, baking and eating pumpkin seeds. They also labeled the parts of the pumpkin. Third-graders are
drugs and alcohol. Seventh- and eighthgraders enjoyed 4-H lessons with Mr. Brian and Ms. Amy this week. They learned about the responsibility of finances and credit cards. Students always enjoy the times they spend during 4-H lessons. The Eagles and Eaglettes played in a basketball tournament Monday night. The next game will be Nov. 4 in Decatur County. I encourage you all to come and support our junior high basketball teams! Yearbooks can still be purchased online (www.smart-pay.com), by phone (1-800-8531337), or by mail. Please do not send any money to school for these. For any other information, contact Mrs. Davis. reading “The Gardener” this week. They are also working hard on adding and subtracting three-digit numbers. Amber Murley’s class estimated the weight of a pumpkin and how many seeds were in it. Then, Mrs. Amber cut the pumpkin open and students counted the seeds. They also put the seeds into groups and multiplied them. Everyone is invited to our fall festival on Saturday. We will have our annual turkey dressing and hot dog meal. There will be several new games this year including a Ferris wheel and a hayride. Come join us for some fun! Carry-out meals start at 4:30 p.m. with games at 5. We hope everyone has a very safe and happy Halloween!
By Brandi Welch We have had a very busy and exciting week at East Chester! Each year, we celebrate Red Ribbon Week during the month of October. This is a celebration of our students and their decisions to remain drug free. Throughout the year, our students have lessons in Guidance class that help them learn how to make good decisions. One of those areas of decision making is the area of personal health and protecting our bodies from harmful substances such as drugs, alcohol and tobacco. This week, our students have learned about the harmful effects of these substances and the various problems they can create. We learned various ways to avoid these substances and how to make good choices for ourselves, as well as ways to positively influence others to make safe and healthy decisions as well. We would like to give a very special thank you to Officer Tim Crowe. He was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to come speak to our students on Monday about staying drug free and making good decisions. We are very blessed in Chester County to have local officers, firefighters, and other community resources who are always willing to come share information with our children to help keep them safe and to encourage them to do the right thing! East Chester has two great simple ways to earn money for education. We collect Box Tops for Education and we recycle empty printer ink cartridges and old cell phones. If you have these items, you may drop them by the school office or send them to school with your students to give to their teachers. Teachers and office staff will be sure to get them to the right place to earn money for our students. Our gifted program, taught by Dr. Belinda Anderson, has been very busy and hard at work lately. The students in this program have been doing an in-depth study of L. Frank Baum’s book, The Wizard of Oz. The culminating activity for this study will be a mock trial of The People vs. Dorothy Gale with all of the students in the gifted program in participation. Students are currently doing character studies, discussing arguments for and against Dorothy, and brainstorming about marketing ideas for this exciting event. Professor Jason Shockley from FreedHardeman University assisted Dr. Anderson in preparing students for this event this week by speaking to some of the students about the criminal justice system. The trial will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 7, at the courthouse. Judge Larry McKenzie has been kind enough to agree to be the judge for the trial. FreedHardeman students, Caley Ward and Trevor Tyson, also came to teach first- through third-grade students in the Gifted
Program how to tie dye shirts as a fun project. We would like to give a special thank you to all of these people for taking the time out of their busy schedules to invest in our students here at East Chester. This week our kindergarten classes finished their units on farm by learning about pumpkins. They are also learning about night and nocturnal animals such as bats. Fall parties will be held on Friday with Halloween and Fall themed centers. Our first-graders had lots of fun on their field trip Thursday at Circle Y in Corinth, Miss. Students had the opportunity to play putt putt golf, visit a petting zoo, go on a hayride, visit a pumpkin patch to pick a pumpkin and much more. Firstgrade teachers would like to thank all those parents who went along to help with the trip. Carrie Sells’ secondgrade class just completed a unit on plants. They made terrariums this week to culminate their study. Mrs. Sells’ class would like to say a very special thank you to Madelyn Wilson and her family for donating all of the plants for this activity. Third-grade teachers and parents would like to thank Sarah Hibbett for her presentation at Parent Involvement. She had students demonstrate many hands-on activities that parents can do with their children at home to show how math is used in the real world. Rosemary McKnight’s third-grade class is getting responses from places they mailed Flat Stanley. Jon and Jennifer Hardin sent pictures of Flat Stanley with their children in China. Flat Stanley rode a bus, ate with chopsticks, and found a McDonald’s in China. LeighAnne Dugger
Thursday, October 28, 2010 received pictures of Flat Stanley with her newborn twin cousins along with brochures he got at Disney World. Tyler Blackwood took Flat Stanley on a trip during Fall Break. Flat Stanley had his picture made at the U.S. Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, the Smithsonian Institute, Gettysburg, and several other places near Washington, D.C. The class is marking Flat Stanley’s adventures on a U.S. map and a world map outside their classroom. In physical education this week, Janice Brown and Coach Chad Hanna’s classes have been working on jumping and landing. Students have been working on the high jump, long jump and hurdles. Next week, they will be learning to play different types of tag games. Due to the dropping temperatures this time of year, please remember to send your child to school with some type of jacket or pullover for playing outside. Mrs. Brown’s classes go outside for PE on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and Coach Chad’s classes go outside on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please also remember that students need tennis shoes for PE every day! In order to better meet the differing needs of our students, Chester County teachers are now participating in weekly training sessions after students are dismissed for the day. These sessions are designed to provide teachers with the latest in teaching techniques and strategies, interpretation and application of student data, classroom management, and use of technology to better prepare our students for the future. We are all very excited about our upcoming Fall Festival on Nov. 6. There
are many ways that parents, local businesses, and other members of our community can help us raise money with this event for our students. We have a silent auction each year and are currently accepting donations of items to be auctioned. If you wish to donate any items, bring them to the school by Thursday, Nov. 4. We will also have a live auction where we will be auctioning off themed baskets of all kinds as well as special keepsake items made by each class. During our festival, Chrysler will make a $10 cash donation for every test drive around our school parking lot. Drivers must be over 18 and must have a valid driver’s license. We will have tons of games and activities for children of all ages including a hayride, fish pond, face painting, plinko, football throw, cakewalk, lollipop tree, and many more! We would also love for you to come enjoy delicious turkey dressing or hot dog plates with us. Advanced tickets for turkey dressing plates are $7 and hot dog plates are $4. Tickets will also be available at the door for $1 more. The schedule for our Fall Festival is as follows: 4 p.m. – Take out meal plates will be ready for pick-up. 4 p.m.-sundown – Test Drive with Chrysler. 4:30 – Students will sing in the gym, followed immediately by Live Auction and games. 5 p.m. – Sit down meals will be ready. 5-7 p.m. - Bidding open for Silent Auction. 7:30 p.m. – Silent Auction winners may begin picking up items. Hope to see you on Nov. 6! Thank you for your interest, support, and contributions to our students’ futures.
