Pirtle waived to Grand Jury following Oct. 22 shooting charges Attempted murder charges against Jeffrey Pirtle, 25, of Henderson, have been waived to action of the Grand Jury. Pirtle appeared Friday before Judge Larry McKenzie in Chester County General Sessions Court in which Pirtle’s bond was

reduced to $50,000. He also was ordered not to have any contact with alleged victims. Charges against Pirtle, which also include reckless endangerment and intimidation, stem from an Oct. 22 incident outside of the Bull Market convenience

store at 245 W. Main St. in Henderson. According to the police report, a witness flagged down police officers at approximately 10:50 p.m. and stated he was sitting in his vehicle at Bull Market See PIRTLE, Page 3-A

Chester County honored veterans of all wars on Thursday, Nov. 11. Approximately 130 people filled the upstairs meeting room of City Hall for “A Time of Remembrance,” sponsored by Veterans of Foreign Wars, and American Legion. Bill Jewell, retired major and quartermaster for VFW Post 4844 and the 8th district, served as master of ceremonies, and

retired Master Sgt. Gloria Holiday, USMC, lead the opening and closing prayers. In addition to the speakers, Abby Bayless, a CCMS student, performed the National Anthem and several patriotic songs. As the veteran population ages and new veterans return from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the needs of veterans are changing. Russell Clayton, Chester County Veteran Service Officer, spoke to the assembly about benefits

relating to Agent Orange exposure. “If you’re a veteran and you think that you have a claim, come and see me. Whether it’s good or not, we’ll make that determination, and if we think that it has any merit, we’ll file it,” Clayton said. He reminds veterans needing to file claims to bring their official separation papers with them when they visit his office. As a somber but necessary reminder See VETERANS, Page 12-A

According to Clayton, the VA has made positive strides in recognizing the lasting affects of Agent Orange, and new diagnostic codes will provide treatment to a greater range of veterans affected by the chemicals. Clayton encourages veterans of the Vietnam conflict, who had a combat specialty, to drop by his office to determine if they are eligible to file medical claims

Board of Mayor and Aldermen focused primarily on the city fire department’s budget. Fire Chief Glenn Bryan presented a proposal for repairs needed at the fire station, and he fielded questions regarding his budget..

Henderson Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted unanimously Thursday, Nov. 11, to appoint Carter Scales as Public Works Director. Scales has served as the interim director since August when former director Jerry King was elected as Chester County Road Supervisor. He has worked for the city for more than 20 years. During a discussion of city accounts, Alderman Tim Faulkner questioned Fire Chief Glenn Bryan regarding the use of only one local physician’s office for department physicals.

Thieves break into E. Main businesses On Monday morning, several Main St. businesses reported break-ins. Officer Weston Watkins was dispatched to 130 E. Main St. at 8 a.m., Nov. 15, to take a report on the damage. A spokesperson with the Chester County Chamber of Commerce stated that the Chamber office had been broken into. Watkins reported that the door appeared to have been kicked open, and damage was estimated at $1,000. Upon investigation of a second office, it appeared

that someone had gone through a desk and taken approximately $60. Watkins also investigated the offices of Modern Woodmen. Entry into those offices had been made through an air vent at the bottom of the door. Nothing was reported missing, although the filing cabinet was damaged and a desk had been ransacked. The office of Southwest Regional Homemaker Program had been entered and gone through in the same manner. Nothing was reported missing,

however. The thieves attempted to enter the offices of World Finance through the door vent, but they were unsuccessful. A second door into the office proved an easier target, but nothing was reported missing from the business. Police investigators determined that entry was made through the back door, which was pried open. Investigator Gary Davidson photographed the scene and took two desk drawers for fingerprinting.

Arts in the Alley postponed until spring Henderson Arts Commission representative Emily Ashley announced Tuesday that Henderson’s Arts in the Alley has been postponed until March. Originally slated to conclude the year with one last Arts in the Alley event in November, Ashley said that after talking to several artists they decided to cancel this month’s event due to weather concerns. Arts in the Alley show-

cases local artists displaying and selling their wares. Ashley commented that October’s event had the largest turn out of artists since Arts in the Alley began this year. Woodcrafts, paintings, handmade jewelry, hair accessories, stained glass, photography, and many other crafts and art are regular features. Chester County has many artists and craftspeople who have often gone largely unnoticed.

The Arts Commission was established earlier this year in order to provide artists with a local venue for their crafts and to bring a greater appreciation for the arts to the community. When the weather improves next spring, Arts in the Alley will return and hopefully continue to grow, providing Chester Countians with access to purchase local art and support homegrown artisans.

Tentative quotes range from $9,600 to $11,000. The amount needed is not in the current budget. The current $4,000 budgeted for building repairs is not enough as there are numerous other repairs and maintenance required as part of regular upkeep of the station. “What I’m trying to do is just make it a better building,” Bryan said. “We could wait until next budget, and I submit it then. All I want to do is let you know that it’s something that needs to be addressed.” He invited the board to come by the station and see for themselves what repairs are necessary. Aldermen agreed to assess the damage, and the project will likely be put on hold until budgeting goes forth for the next fiscal year. Budgeting for Henderson’s volunteer fire department was $35,000 for the year. The fire department generally closes out its budget in late November, but as of Oct. 31, the department was over budget to finish out its year. King questioned whether to continue to the end of the month and fund the excess from general funds or to close out the year with October, adding November to the upcoming fire department budget year. “This year in a 12month period, we’ve spent a little over $20,000 for volunteer firemen to go on calls,” King said. “Of that, $12,840 is for calls we made to FreedHardeman.” The cost concerns King because approximately 60 percent of all volunteer fire costs come from one entity. Each building or residence in the city, including each individual FHU building, is entitled to one free fire call per month. Property taxes generally cover the cost for manpower, vehicles, and water usage, but because FHU dorms frequently exceed their free call limit, it puts a strain on the city’s ability to pay the 12 to 14 volunteers who typically turn out for each fire call.

According to King, it costs the city $200 to $250 every time a truck rolls on a false call. He added that the city also has a high liability when volunteers are on the road relying on personal vehicles to reach the scene. FHU often has an excess of false calls to the dorms because steam from showers, hairspray, curling irons, and burned food set alarms off on a regular basis. The frequency of false alarms places a strain on the city’s tight budget. Several aldermen inquired about the possibility of having a tiered response system for buildings known for false calls. Such a system would require only a certain number of firefighters to turn out in order to establish the validity of a call, and if the situation were a true emergency, the rest of the department would be called for. “It’s like a gamble,” Chief Bryan said. “You don’t know it’s a false alarm until you get there. With volunteers you never know if you’re going to have four show up or 12 show up.” Without the volunteers, however, the fire department does not have enough firefighters to begin fighting a fire. Only one firefighter is on duty at the station at a time. It takes the fire truck approximately three to four minutes to reach FHU, and assessing the scene typically takes seven minutes to determine if there is truly a fire. Bryan stated that he felt that the call protocol and system is currently working properly, but he would like to see a different way of paying for false calls. “Perhaps we could look at only giving so many false calls to the campus per month,” he suggested. “Then we charge for the rest of them.” The Mayor recognized that no decision on revising policies could be made during the meeting. “The reason I brought it up tonight was that we overspent our budget. We’ve got a few more firemen, more training, and more calls. If the board is com-

fortable raising the budget $10,000-$15,000 more a year and expects that to include those calls, that’s fine.” The board voted to cut off the funds as of the end of October and to correct the excess next year. Volunteer fire fighters are paid once a year in December, which accounts for the early cut off. Adding to the city’s dilemma, FHU owed $1,050 for calls to its buildings, but at the time of the meeting, the university had not paid the city since May 26. Alderman Keith Smith offered to bring the bill to FHU’s attention. As of Nov. 12, Smith collected all payment due. “Policies will be put [at FHU] in place to keep everyone current and happy,” he said. Bryan, King, and the aldermen agree that false calls are an on-going issue and that they will have to revisit the situation in the future. Updating city municipal codes was also on the agenda. King stated that the code has not been updated since 2004, and he requested that a member of the board of aldermen be appointed to work with City Recorder Jim Garland and the Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS) to update the code. The board voted to appoint Alderman Johny Farris to the committee. However, Jack Fitts, of the Board of Zoning Appeals, recently resigned. Garner and King asked members to bring recommendations for his replacement before the board in December.

witness said when he looked up he saw two males standing near the entrance of the Bull Market, who then fled 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 Pirtle by clothing and vehicle descriptions. Pirtle was later located at his Cedarhurst residence and taken into custody.

City Department spent $150 at the Frix-Jennings Clinic last month for firefighters’ physicals. Faulkner questioned the fairness of relying on one clinic, despite the fact that the clinic had placed the lowest bid when former Fire Chief Jimmy Carter requested bids several years ago. Since the cost of physicals is less than the $10,000 bid limit, which means that the city is not required to request bids for the service, Faulkner said that he would like to see the city share the business with other local clinics. He believes it is a disservice to other clinics not to share the business. “It’s no different than we do with the local parts stores and our other businesses. We kind of share – we give a little business to this one, a little to that, kind of spread it out, and I’d like to see this spread out,” he said. Chief Bryan offered to approach the clinics to find out about their pricing, but he added that the current charge of $75 per physical is likely to increase if they were to seek additional bids. While potentially helping all Henderson clinics, canceling the bid would potentially cost the city additional funds, as the price for services continues to rise. Law requires firefighters and volunteers to have annual baseline physicals in order to comply with OSHA regulations for safety when wearing heavy oxygen tanks. In a proposal of his own, Bryan asked the board for suggestions regarding repairs needed for the firehouse. Built in 1999, the firehouse has sustained water damage caused over time by moisture leaking through bricks into the engine bay. The damage has cause paint to peal, and in other places, nail holes and daily wear and tear have damaged the paint and drywall, as well as ceiling cracks. The fire chief has sought several quotes as part of his information gathering.

Historical Society meets The Chester County Historical Society met for its regular meeting Monday Night, Nov. 1. Bill Jewell was the guest speaker. He gave the number of casualties from all wars in which the United States has been involved. He also shared some of his military experiences and poems he has written of military memories. It was a very informed and delightful evening. Robbie Stanfill served refreshments to members, Alice and Cecil Barker, Dr. John D. Thomas, Erin Adams, Charles and Loretta Haggard, and June Smith.

The breakfast was a success even though there were other breakfasts and other good projects going on. Our community was saddened by the death of Suzanne Cook, 49-yearold wife of Galen Cook. Please remember Ann, Tina, Bonnie, and the other members of the family. The Montezuma Community Center will

host a Christmas dinner at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4. Bingo will follow, so please bring a bingo gift. This will be a potluck meal; bring enough to feed your family. Bring a friend and join us. On our prayer list are Utah Stidham, A.C. and Donna Stidham, the Cook family, Hearn family, and the family of Wanna Mae Tarpley.

23. Hope you have a great day. Happy anniversary to Jerry and Loretta Howell. Celebrate big! Also, congratulations Jerry on your new job. Quote of the week: “There are new words now that excuse everybody. Give me the good old days of heroes and villains, the people you can bravo or hiss. There was a truth to them that all the slick credulity of today cannot touch.” - Bette Davis Thanksgiving Day is next week. I hope everyone is looking forward to a big day with family and will remember the reason

for the day. Thanksgiving is a holiday to express thankfulness, gratitude, and appreciation to God, family and friends for which all have been blessed of material possessions and relationships. Traditionally, it has been a time to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. This holiday has since moved away from its religious roots. Currently, in the United States Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. However, Thanksgiving in the United States was observed on various different dates throughout

history. By the mid 20th century, the final Thursday in November had become the customary day of Thanksgiving in most American states. It was not until Dec. 26, 1941, however, that President Franklin D. Roosevelt, after pushing two years earlier to move the date earlier to give the country an economic boost, signed a bill into law, with Congress, making Thanksgiving a national holiday and settling it to the fourth (but not final) Thursday in November. Have a great week and be happy. Call me at 8799777 with your news.

years of Marriage on Nov. 19. On our prayer list are David Varvel, Loretta Pickett, Frank McEarl, Betty Stout, Alyse Rietz, Billy, Jim and Alice Alexander, Coy and Geraldine Jones, the Chris Page family, and our military and their families. A few weeks ago, I went on a field trip with my grandson’s pre-school class. A few things quickly came to my attention. What’s that old saying? The old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be! If you could contain the energy of 20 4-year-olds, you could run a car, heat a house, there are endless possibilities. It was very cold and muddy that day. After walking quite some time, we entered a corn maze to which my grandson shortly replied, “Grandma, where are we going?” I said, “I’m not sure, just follow the leader.” “My legs are tired of walking,” he said, “Carry me.” I explained that he was too

heavy for grandma to carry. People began to pass us by. We kept walking and Will kind of started lagging behind me. I heard him talking and asked who he was talking to. His reply, “I’m talking to God!” I asked him what he

was saying. In a somewhat exasperated voice, he held his hands to the sky and said, “I’m asking Him to get me outta here!” If you have news to share, call 989-7523. I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.

We’re 64!!!! In “Dog Years” that’s 12! Don Jones turned 64 on October 24 Dusty Jones turns 64 on November 24 Will you still need me – will you still feed me when I’m 64? Answer by Patsy Nobles Jones is “You dog-gone right.”

I hope everyone had a good week. On our prayer list are Phillip Ragan, Sonny Grimm, Archie Knipper, Dennis Bain, Edra Barnett, Freddie Murley Smith, Brenda Collins, Charles Murley, Angie Knipper and Zach Dickey. Happy birthday to Shirley Reddinger on Nov.

The guys are back from the mission trip. The next trip will be in December, closer to Christmas. On this trip, along with Christmas gifts, they are in need of non-perishable food items. If you need more information, call Neal Kinchen or Randy Morris. This is the time of giving to those less fortunate. We are so blessed and many times we take it for granted.

The dear old veterans slowly made their way to once again show love, devotion, and respect to their country. It is so simple to see why they are called “The Greatest Generation.” The slide show of our veterans was emotional during the Veterans Day Program at City Hall. No matter their health issues, when they pledge allegiance to the American Flag it always brings tears to my eyes as they salute at full attention. God bless each of them for their service. Without them, we would not have all our freedoms. It is never too late to shake hands, salute, send thank you notes, or surprise them with a dinner plate. Thank you for attending and showing patriotism. We missed those that couldn’t attend. We thought about those who faded away and are now “Soldiers of the Cross.” Vets and pets are loyal. Dusty visited four vets at the Chester County Healthcare wearing his patriotic shirt. The staff read patriotic poems and prepared dessert for them.

TOMMY MOFFITT Volunteer All-Conference team selected by the coaches.” “Birthday Party” “Little Sheila Lynn Hatch was honoree at a delightfully planned party in honor of her fifth birthday when her mother, Mrs. Odell Hatch, was hostess on Monday afternoon. The Hatch home on Highway 45 was decorated for the occasion. “Games were enjoyed and balloons were given as favors. The birthday cake with five glowing candles was the center of attraction. Sheila opened her gifts and expressed her thanks for them.” “Births” “Henderson Clinic”

It was nice to see them honored. We have veterans in our community who deserve respect. Think of something to do for them during Thanksgiving week. Check the post office bulletin board for a list of our veterans. Perhaps you can help with names. Call 9897485 by Thursday. Perhaps the vets will let me know what you did for them. I’d love to share the kindness and news. Sh-h-h-h, the turkeys are quiet and necks are tucked tightly! There is a serious rumor going around in the Creek. Chris Siler at Old Time BBQ is expecting turkeys to roost on his pit until ready to be gobbled down for Thanksgiving Day. We certainly are blessed to have a plentiful harvest. As we give thanks, let’s remember to thank our Heavenly Father. Early Thanksgiving came to us this week! Can you imagine someone growing, picking, freezing, and bringing blueberries to your door on a cold night? Ray (Shirley) Hooper did just that. To express appreciation blueberry pancakes for breakfast, blueberry muffins for lunch, and blueberry pie for supper – a blessed receiver! Sure wish Nita Middleton on the 18th and Billy Lott on the 22nd could have blueberry birthday cake… it’s

all in WHO you know! Little Clair Ruth Wilson (born Oct. 20) might like blueberry juice. Scott and Paige may change a booberry diaper before Scott goes to work at Johnson Chapel. Santa wasn’t spotted, but his helpers were surrounding Timeless Treasures on Front Street in Henderson. Shoppers were anxiously shopping for friends and family while Pat Harville carried treasures to Kay Helton for unique wrapping. Shirley Brown and Barbara Long were assisting - even in a rescue attempt for Miss Honey Bee trapped behind the beautiful display window (designed by Stacy Russell I bet). Music set the mood as Mary White hit the piano keys while shoppers hit the refreshments. Lavon Jones was in a HoHo-Ho mood enjoying a nice turnout. Polly Lemons was “Mrs. Santa” finally settling into a rocking chair to fill her eyes with a one-stop wonderful shop for Santa. “Virginia Slims” they aint, but a long weekend to Virginia brought blessings anyway! Bailey sisters, Delana O’Neal and Debbie Smith were welcomed at the midnight hour to warm embraces from Rebecca (Joey) Ashbrook, and a midnight snack! A second pleasure was a tour of Monticello, home of

President Thomas Jefferson. After leaving signs of family love on the patio and laundry room, it was back to reality Chester County or bust! Timber-r-r-r was the last sound heard by two oak trees in Ruby Harrington’s yard. Power lines were being seduced by loving arms from these once mighty oaks. One had an earlier lightning strike, and critters nibbled around the ankles of the other trunk. Townsend Tree Service put an end to the affair with a chainsaw! Nothing left but a stump! Any takers? As much pork as they sell you’d think at least pink trim! C & R has a new paint job that looks clean and neat. It makes the neighborhood shine! Someone had a steady hand painting that red stripe, but maybe the sun will fade it to a shade of pink! Oink-Oink or honkhonk when you pass to show appreciation this coming Thursday! It makes a hard day’s work come to a good end with approval from the neighborhood. Peep show was fun for Naomi Lott and me. My friend, Avis Smith, received a gift (pink robe) from Benny, John, and Josh Hopkins. The gift was delivered by Vena Mae Thomas Smith, and opened in front of Naomi, Wilma Hart and Ozell

OTHER TROPHY WINNERS – While the CCHS coaching staff look on, members of the CCHS football team representing the junior, sophomore and freshman classes pose with trophies awarded by the Chester County Quarterback Club as outstanding team members. Receiving the awards were, left to right, Jimmy King, (Junior), Tommy Rush (Sophomore), and Mike Melton (Freshman).

Culp. Vena and I discovered her daughter, Sheila Hopkins, once worked with me! Surely we can meet for tacos, a memorable junior high meal. Naomi helped end our day admiring Murdell McCall Barker’s hand-painted mantle works of art. Murdell is recovering more and more from her Aug. 25th kiss on Mr. Rock’s cheek. It was almost the kiss of death glad Mr. Boulder is in Colorado! She slept in the rocking chair outside on the porch. Dipsy, a beloved pet, knew her master was on the other side of the window. Before the curtain was drawn, she could see her master and knew all was well. The faithful little dog died Nov. 8, 2010. Jane and Mallan Morris will miss her greatly. Mallan named her, and all the family loved Dipsy. She’d turn in little circles greeting visitors or receiving meals.

Pets leave their little paw marks on our hearts. Prayers are requested for Cordie Tucker, Dwight Hudson, Travis Lewis, Alton Johnson, David Courdle and Lois Wilkerson. Perhaps a call, visit, bowl of soup, or pumpkin roll would help our friends. Our community expresses sympathy to the families of Robbie Armour Hearn (10-11-12/11-1110); and Lester Perry (625-17/11-12-10). Though Lester didn’t want to go without his wife of 66 years, he was surrounded by love and peacefully died at home. A “Good-bye” is in reality a “See you tomorrow.”

Bush set to speak at FHU, Dec. 3 George W. Bush to be third US President to speak at annual Freed-Hardeman University Advisory Board Benefit Dinner Former President George W. Bush will be arriving in Henderson on Friday, Dec. 3, to speak at Freed-Hardeman University’s 46th annual Advisory Board Benefit Dinner. President Bush will be speaking in Loyd Auditorium, headlining the event as the university prepares to raise more than $1 million for the 10th consecutive year. The Benefit Dinner provides an opportunity to not only help bridge the financial gap that many students face with rising tuition costs, but also to hear one of the nation’s leading personalities. Last year alone, students received more than $1.3 million in scholarships through this event. George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the

United States, was sworn into office on Jan. 20, 2001, and re-elected on Nov. 2, 2004. Before his Presidency, he served for six years as Governor of the State of Texas. The most significant event of President Bush’s tenure came on Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorists killed nearly 3,000 people on American soil. President Bush responded with a comprehensive strategy to protect the American people. He built global coalitions to remove violent regimes in Afghanistan and Iraq that threatened America?— liberating more than 50 million people from tyranny. Since leaving office, President Bush has focused on launching the George W. Bush Presidential Center at

Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. The Center will include a museum, archives of the Bush Presidency, and an Institute, which was announced last fall. The Bush Institute promotes action-oriented initiatives in human freedom, education, economic opportunity and global health, and programming began this past spring. The Bush Center will open in the spring of 2013. President Bush recently finished his book, Decision Points, which was released Nov. 9. He is married to Laura Welch Bush, a former teacher and librarian whom he met at a friend’s backyard barbeque. They have twin

daughters, Barbara and Jenna, and a son-in-law, Henry Hager. The Bush family also includes two dogs, Barney and Miss Beazley. George W. Bush will not be the first U.S. president to step foot on FHU’s campus. In the 1970’s the 38th President Gerald Ford was the speaker at this event followed by 41st President, George H. W. Bush in 2000. The dinner benefits the students of FreedHardeman University. Proceeds from the event help fund the scholarships that give them the opportunity for an education at FHU. For more information about the event, visit www.fhu.edu/w or contact the office of university advancement at 800348-3481.

Winter Weather Awareness Week, Nov. 14-19

Winter weather a killer, take steps to stay safe A blanket of white fluffy snow makes for a winter wonderland of fun. However, winter weather in general can be a killer for those unprepared. Nov. 14-19 is Winter Weather Awarness Week, and local officials urge that just a little preparation is important to avoid being a casualty. According to the American Red Cross, each year dozen of Americans die from prolonged exposure to cold. Add to that number, vehicle accidents and fatalities, fires due to dangerous use of heaters and other winter weather fatalities, and you have a signficant threat. A major winter storm can last for days; people can become trapped at home, in a car, without utilities or other assistance, and the extreme cold and snow can cause hazardous and hidden conditions. Winds of 35 mph or more can cause blizzard conditions that reduce visibility for hours. About 70 percent of injuries due to snow and ice result from vehicle accidents, about 25 percent from people caught in storms, and most of the injuries occur to males over age 40. Flooding is also a major winter weather hazard, and so is extreme cold. There are ways, however, to avoid being a victim of a winter storm. It begins by being informed of the approaching storm by use of a NOAA weather radio, commercial radio and television. Next, have a surival kit. At home and at work, have a weather radio, a flashlight with extra batteries, extra food and water, extra medicine and baby items, a first aid kit, an emergency heat source, and a fire extenguisher and smoke alarm. In vehicles, plan your

travel and check the latest weather reports to avoid storms. Carry a winter survival kit that includes a mobile phone, batteries, blankets, flashlight, firstaid kit, knife, non-perisable food, extra clothing, sand or kitty litter for traction, a shovel, windshield scraper, tool kit, tow rope, battery booster cables, a water container, and compass and road map. Keep your gas tank near full, avoid traveling alone, and let someone know your timetable and alternate routes. And don’t forget your pets! If caught in a storm, find shelter as soon as possible, build a lean-to if necessary. Try to stay dry, and avoid eating snow for dinking water; instead, melt snow first. If caught in a storm while in your vehicle, stay there because you can become disoriented quickly in wind-driven snow and cold. Run the motor about 10 minutes each hour for warmth, but open the window a little to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, and make sure the tailpipe is not blocked. Make yourself visible to rescuers. Also, exercise from time to time to keep warm. If caught inside, use safeguards when using alternate heat and properly ventilate. In all cases, avoid overexertion, such as shoveling snow, pushing a car, or walking in deep snow. The Red Cross also suggests you have a family disaster plan. Steps to take include gathering information about hazards, meet with your family to create a plan, implement your plan, and practice and maintain the plan. Included in the plan should be a disaster supplies kit.

Free business seminars Dec. 7 at City Hall Aspiring business entrepreneurs and existing business owners are invited to attend two free presentations on Tuesday, Dec. 7 at Henderson City Hall 121 Crook Ave. The first class, How to Start a Business, begins at 1:30 p.m., followed by Effective Business Management class at 2:45 p.m. This free event is co-sponsored by the Tennessee Small Business Development Center at Jackson State Community College, and the Henderson/Chester County Chamber of Commerce. Call the Chamber office at 9895222 to register or for more information. “How to Start a Business” - Learn ABC’s to developing a business plan

The “How to Start a Business” class is designed for anyone who wants to start a new business. It will walk entrepreneurs through the essential steps necessary to develop a business plan, one that will ultimately show if the business is viable. It will enable business owners to visualize the time it will take to break even. It covers all the important areas of business activity from business licensing, business entities, market research, to financial development, marketing, costing and record maintenance. The class provides a step by step process in understanding not only what is required to be done, but the why it is important that it be done.

Expanded recovery tax credits helps winterize People can now weatherize their homes and be rewarded for their efforts. According to the Internal Revenue Service, homeowners making energysaving improvements this fall can cut their winter heating bills and lower their 2010 tax bill as well. Last year’s Recovery Act expanded two home energy tax credits: the non-business energy property credit and the residential energy efficient property credit. Non-business energy property credit This credit equals 30 percent of what a homeowner spends on eligible energy-saving improvements, up to a maximum tax credit of $1,500 for the combined 2009 and 2010 tax years. The cost of certain high-efficiency heating and air conditioning systems, water heaters and stoves that burn biomass all qualify, along with labor costs for installing these items. In addition, the cost of energy-efficient windows and skylights, energy-efficient doors, qualifying insulation and certain roofs also qualify for the credit, though the cost of installing these items does not count. By spending as little as $5,000 before the end of the year on eligible energy-saving improvements,

a homeowner can save as much as $1,500 on his or her 2010 federal income tax return. Due to limits based on tax liability, amounts spent on eligible energy-saving improvements in 2009, other credits claimed by a particular taxpayer and other factors, actual tax savings will vary. These tax savings are on top of any energy savings that may result. Residential energy efficient property credit Homeowners going green should also check out a second tax credit designed to spur investment in alternative energy equipment. The residential energy efficient property credit equals 30 percent of what a homeowner spends on qualifying property such as solar electric systems, solar hot water heaters, geothermal heat pumps, wind turbines, and fuel cell property. Generally, labor costs are included when figuring this credit. Also, except for fuel cell property, no cap exists on the amount of credit available. Not all energy-efficient improvements qualify for these tax credits. For that reason, homeowners should check the manufacturer’s tax credit certification statement before purchasing or installing any of these improvements. The

certification statement can usually be found on the manufacturer’s website or with the product packaging. Normally, a homeowner can rely on this certification. The IRS cautions that the manufacturer’s certification is different from the Department of Energy’s Energy Star label, and not all Energy Star labeled products qualify for the tax credits. Eligible homeowners

can claim both of these credits when they file their 2010 federal income tax return. Because these are credits, not deductions, they increase a taxpayer’s refund or reduce the tax owed. An eligible taxpayer can claim these credits, regardless of whether he or she itemizes deductions on Schedule A. Use Form 5695, Residential Energy Credits, to figure and claim these credits.

Statistics prove that 80 percent of new businesses fail within the first five years. Of those that make it through the first five years, only 20 percent make it to the 10th year. This means that only four percent of new businesses are around after 10 years. “Stepping Stones to Effective Business Management” Keeping business healthy and profitable For anyone in business, this class will show how to watch every aspect of business that contributes to “bottom line” profitability. It is designed for not only for a normal economy, but for survival in tough economic times as well. It will address issues in marketing management, financial management, human resource management and general business management. Whether one is a retailer or a service organization, this class will teach ways to look at cost savings through a “different

set of eyes.” Things that are done by “rote” often generate trouble; the goal of this class is to demonstrate how to avoid these pitfalls. The steps are not complicated or difficult, but they do require commitment. Hopefully, the proactive approach will motivate businesses to more positive management strategies and enable them to address profitability regardless of market conditions. These seminars are funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration, and the Tennessee Board of Regents and the State of Tennessee. All SBA funded programs are extended to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis. Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance. Contact the TSBDC office at 731424-5389 to make the arrangements.

Is life fair? Edmond Booth stood at 6 foot 3, was blind in one eye and profoundly deaf. Ludwig Von Beethoven experienced bipolar disorder and depression then lost his hearing in 1800. Laura Bridgman became blind and deaf from scarlet fever. Winston Churchill had bipolar disorder. Charles Dickens had depression and epilepsy. There are many more examples in history past and present of people who were presented with circumstances in life that we deem unfair. Moving forward to present day we hear or know of people whose husband or wife has left them. We may have heard of others who survived a horrific accident that has left them a paraplegic. Others have lost a husband, wife or a child, a sibling or a house or employment. Then there are the servants who are daily caring for someone with a debilitating disease or physical or mental impairment. We have no control over others and the choices they make, or circumstances that change our life forever. There is a reason for what has happened in our life even if known only to God. There is always something to learn and something positive that can be gained. This is the time to remember the joy obtained from the relationship, and the memories. Withdrawing and isolating

yourself would be a temptation to resist. As soon as we can, it will be beneficial to us to get involved in the life of others through service. This will help us heal as well as the recipient of our service. We do have control over how we react to life and its challenges. We could become bitter and resentful. Or, we can look at our transition as an opportunity for growth, (Psalm 73). This is Sunrise.

Veterans in light of the recent passing of a large percentage of the county’s WWII veterans, Clayton encouraged widows of all veterans who were receiving benefits to come by so he can help them receive any benefits they are eligible for through their late spouse. Lt. Col. Joe Lane, design engineer and Chief Officer of the 194th Engineer Brigade, Tennessee Army National Guard in Jackson, addressed the gathering. Lane recently returned from a tour in Iraq where he worked with Iraqi engineers to aid in the rebuilding of a stable infrastructure where buildings, roads, and bridges have often been reduced to rubble. He also oversaw construction of polling facilities and voting booths, where many Iraqi women have been allowed to vote for the first time without the fear of torture or death. “Iraq wants to succeed, and we want them to succeed,” he said. “I was honored not only to serve my country but in making history that future generations will read about.” He added, “Perhaps we can start to remember this: that all of those who fought for us and our country were and are, in one way or another, carrying our message of freedom throughout the world. We do know that without our veterans, America would not be America.” Lane charged Americans to remember veterans past, present, and future and to understand that veterans need support more than ever. Americans need not simply stand behind their veterans but with them as they fight against terrorism on and off U.S. soil. As the military lessens its presence in Iraq and increases operations in Afghanistan, service members need to know that their country supports their duties. “We have to be armed with a renewed sense of patriotism and purpose.” Veterans are generally

Chester County veterans of all ages gathered last Thursday for a ceremony in their honor at City Hall. Cecil Barker, front row (second from right) was the oldest veteran to attend the program. a humble group who do not ask for much in return for their service. A “thank you” and a smile usually are all the encouragement they need, but Lane feels that the American people can and should do more. “Our veterans have delivered liberty, justice, and hope for a better tomorrow for freedomloving people,” he said. To give back, a card of thanks to a veteran or a care package sent to troops serving overseas can make an amazing difference in raising the spirits of those serving and who have served. Veterans in healthcare facilities are often overlooked, and speakers encouraged the community to visit those in facilities throughout the county. No one at the ceremony could deny that veterans should be honored more than once a year. Not only do veterans deserve recognition, but also they have an unbreakable bond with others who have served, regardless of branch or rank. “The one thing that’s been running through my mind all week is the fact that years ago, we were all either Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marines, Coast Guard or even National Guardsmen, but today we are all veterans of military service to our country, and as veterans, we should be proud of whatever branch of the service we were in,” said Lee Gertson, Commander of American Legion, Post 157. The oldest veteran in attendance was 93-yearold William Cecil Barker of Enville. Barker entered the Army on April 13,

Lt. Col. Joe Lane was the keynote speaker at the community Veterans’ Day ceremony on Nov. 11. He returned from Iraq earlier this year following a deployment with the Tennessee National Guard. He supervised Iraqi engineering programs and feels that the country has made significant gains and hopes to become successful as the turnover of power is completed.

1940 and served on active duty for five years. During his service, he was stationed at Maxwell Field General Hospital near Montgomery, Ala., for most of his time. Before the military implemented its point system for overseas service, Barker was slated to be shipped to the Pacific; however, once he arrived in California for embarkation, his points kept him in the States, working in stateside hospitals until his discharge. After being discharged from active duty, Barker served in the National Guard, achieving the rank of sergeant.

He continued working in the medical field for many years. In 1983, he retired from the community hospital in Lexington. At the time of his retirement, he worked as purchasing agent for the hospital. The nonagenarian lives on his Enville farm with his wife Alice, and he keeps busy gardening and raising Labrador puppies. As a courtesy to veterans, Veterans Services Officer Clayton reminded everyone that his office has moved to the upstairs of the former public safety building. Handicapped access is available.

states have made made the store one of the top gun dealers in West Tennessee. However, the Internet is making Robertson’s even bigger, but don’t expect owner John Robertson to take time to chat about it, he’s too busy

shipping firearms all over the country. “Since 2007, Internet sales have been about 7080 percent of our business. Now its getting close to 90 percent,” said Robertson. “Our business use to be from about four counties, now more 60-80

percent is out of four states, including California.” To be certain he is in compliance with federal gun laws, and various state laws as well, Robertson ships only to licensed gun dealers. He says the Internet

State’s pre-K program called “major success” Tennessee has more than 900 state-funded prekindergarten classes currently serving about 18,000 pupils. Pre-K is still voluntary, and the program cost $83 million last year, with $58 million of that amount coming from the state. Tennessee Education Association (TEA) Executive Director Al Mance says the program has proven to be effective

in boosting early development, and also contributes to kids’ progress years down the road. “It does increase graduation rates. It increases rates of attendance at college, and there are so many long-term impacts both economic and social that it’s almost impossible to calculate.” Mance says the money supporting the program is well spent and gives

Tennessee families a topquality early learning program. The state is ranked fifth in the country by a national group that evaluates state-funded pre-K programs. “We think that the program more than pays for itself in the long term. It’s not going to be like a business incentive, where you put a dollar in today and you expect to get two dol-

Republican lawmakers have expressed more skepticism: they say in the state budget crisis, every program is on the table to be analyzed for cuts.

business has fewer snags than over-the-counter sales. “We’re like a little factory. We get guns from all over the country and foreign countries. It takes time to put guns on sale online, (but) it might take an hour to sell one gun over the counter, and five minutes on line,” he emphasized.

Robertson’s does online business through the website www.gunsamerica.com, and he has his own website robertsontradingpost.com. The store at 117 Front Street has guns in display cases for sale, plus they still do some pawn business, “but if you’re just looking, you need to look online,” he said.

Farm Service Agency State Director urges farmers and ranchers to vote Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director Gene Davidson announced that the 2010 FSA county committee elections began Nov. 5, with USDA mailing ballots to eligible voters. The deadline to return the ballots to local FSA offices is Dec. 6. “All eligible farmers and ranchers can make a difference by voting in this year’s county committee elections,” said Davidson. “County committee members will provide input and make important decisions on the local administration of new disaster and conservation programs under the 2008 Farm Bill. I particularly encourage minority and women producers to get involved so that county committees fairly represent the producers of a county or multicounty jurisdiction.” County committee members are an important component of the operations of FSA and provide a link between the agricultural com-

munity and the Department of Agriculture (USDA). Farmers and ranchers elected to county committees help deliver FSA programs at the local level, applying their knowledge and judgment to make decisions on commodity price support loans and payments; conservation programs; incentive indemnity and disaster payments for some commodities; emergency programs and payment eligibility. FSA committees operate within official regulations designed to carry out federal laws. To be an eligible voter, farmers and ranchers must participate or cooperate in an FSA program. A person who is not of legal voting age, but supervises and conducts the farming operations of an entire farm also may be eligible to vote. Agricultural producers in each county submitted candidate nominations during the nomination period, which ended on Aug. 2.

CCHS opens season Friday, FHU teams take to the road Chester County High School opens its 2010-11 basketball season at 6 p.m. Friday in the TSSAA Hall of Fame contests at Adamsville. Each of the Chester County teams returns an abundance of starting players from last year, and each team is optimistic for a great season. The Freed-Hardeman Lions play their first road game of the season at 6 p.m. Thursday as they travel to William Carey University. However, the FHU Lady Lions play three times against top-10 competition this weekend in Jackson at Union University in the Rotary Classic.

The surging FreedHardeman University women’s volleyball team completed a sweep through the TranSouth Conference Tournament by defeating Bethel University in the finals Nov. 10 at the FHU Sports Center. FHU defeated the Lady Wildcats 19-25, 2521, 25-16, and 25-14. The Lady Lions, the number two seed in the tournament, won all four of its matches in the tournament, including an upset of regular season champion Union on Tuesday. It was the team’s second consecutive conference touranment title, and third in four years. FHU now advances to the NAIA National Tournament first round. The top 12 seeds receive first round byes and advance on to the central site Nov. 30 to Dec. 4 at

the Tyson Events Center/Gateway Arena in Sioux City, Iowa. The other 24 teams play opening round games Nov. 21 at campus sites before going on to Sioux City. “We came together as a team about mid-season,” commented FHU head coach Todd Humphry. “We had about a week off during the middle part of the year that allowed us to work out some issues.” FHU then played Union right after that, winning in Jackson and the team began to jell from that point on. “Today the girls gave a good effort. Renata Ferreira played through some pain, but it was a good team effort,” Humphry concluded. The victory over Bethel was not an easy one. After the Lady Lions defeated See CHAMPS, Page 2-B

Lady Lions draw No. 20 Lindenwood The Freed-Hardeman Lady Lion volleyball team will travel to No. 20 Lindenwood (Mo.) University for the NAIA Volleyball National Championship Opening Round on Nov. 20. This is FHU’s second straight trip to the national championship, losing in last year’s opening round match to Lee University, 3-1. Lee is currently the top-ranked team in the NAIA. The Lady Lions have already faced Lindenwood once this season at the Holiday Inn Express Tournament in Chicago, losing 3-0 on Sept. 17. FHU defeated Lindenwood last season, 32, at the Bone Yard Brawl in Georgetown, Ky. Lindenwood (33-12) won the Heartland of America Athletic Conference tournament championship and is led

by Ellen Fandry who averages 3.2 kills per set. The winners of the National Championship Opening Round matches advance to the Tyson Events Center/Gateway Arena in Sioux City, Iowa, location of the NAIA National Championship Nov. 30 - Dec. 4. The following teams have received an opening round bye: Azusa Pacific, Biola, California Baptist, Columbia, Concordia, Fresno Pacific, Lewis-Clark State, Lee, Northwestern of Iowa, Taylor, and Texas at Brownsville. The final 24 teams will be placed into six pools and will play round robin pool play at the nationals with the top two teams from each pool advancing to the single-elimination bracket starting Dec. 3. The championship match is Dec. 4 in Sioux City.

Lions impressive in victory over Lee

If teams truly do live and die by the three-pointer, the FreedHardeman Lady Lions certainly lived by it on Saturday afternoon. FHU knocked down 15 of 31 attempts from behind the arc, four of which came in a crucial two-minute span, in posting an 80-72 over Milligan College on Homecoming afternoon in the Sports Center. The No. 9 Lady Lions (4-0) used the three-pointer to turn a 62-62 tie with 6:15 left into a 7664 lead at the 3:51 mark on four straight shots that were launched from behind the men’s arc - and sometimes, particularly when Hannah Parsley shot, launched from well beyond the men’s arc. Parsley hit three of the four three’s that came in the midst of the 16-2 run and also added a layup on her way to a game-high 22 points. She twice connected from 25 feet from the left wing. The quick FHU run, which helped put the game out of

It may or may not have been a statement game, but the FreedHardeman Lions should definitely turn some heads following a 90-67 win over No. 12 Lee University on Saturday afternoon in front of a large Homecoming crowd at the Sports Center. The No. 23 Lions outscored Lee 40-20 in the second half, largely because the Flames’ Jerel Blocker cooled off after a blistering first half that saw the senior score 20 points. But while he and his teammates struggled from the field in the second half, the Lions didn’t. After shooting 65.5 percent in the first half, FHU stayed hot with high-percentage looks and connected on 50 percent of its shots after halftime while Lee which shot 63.3 percent in the first - could manage just 27.3 percent in the second half. That helped FHU to go on runs of 10-0 and 8-0 as the Lions turned a 50-47 halftime lead into

The basketball is just out of the reach of Kasie Beene of the Chester County Junior High; however, Lexington Middle School found that their own victory was just out of reach of Thursday as CCJHS prevailed 33-30.

Madison Cherry tossed in 14 points, including a three-pointer, as the Chester County Junior High girls’ basketball team outlasted Lexington Middle 33-30 Thursday at CCJHS. Kasie Been added six points for the Junior Eaglettes, followed by four from Kelsey Lutrell and three from Brittany Brooks. Alyssa Joyner, Mari Sneed, and Madison McCaskill added two each.

Champs Bethel in the winners’ bracket semi-finals Nov. 9, they proceeded next to beat No. 1 seed Union. The victory over the Lady Bulldogs was FHU’s second straight this season. In order for Bethel to win the championship coming out of the losers’ bracket they would have had to defeat FHU twice. And following a first set 19-25 victory by the Lady Wildcats, it appeared they might force the second match, building an 11-7 lead in the second set. However, FHU scored the next five points, and 10 of 13, to grab the lead. Bethel used good ball placement on the court to stay within reach of the lead, eventually knotting the score at 21. However, Sandra Montoya and Sydney Rice hit winning spikes for the Lady Lions, and a service ace ended the set 25-21 in favor of FHU. Set three was another tight affair. FHU led 2-0, and 8-5 with Bethel coming back each time. Finally at 9-8 FHU, Renata Ferreira and Fernanda Ferreira teamed up for a block giving the Lady Lions needed momentum. At 23-16 FHU, the teams played a tremendous point that went back and forth, but eventually won by the Lady Lions on a spike by Rachelle

Prince, then another winner by Fernanda Ferreira followed with a winner to end the game 25-16 Lady Lions. Bethel, playing its second match of the day and fourth within 24 hours, appeared to tire a bit in set four, and the Lady Lions tried to run away with it. They opened up a 5-0 lead, eventually leading 12-4. But rallies by Bethel got them back to 12-7. With Rice serving, the Lady Lions again went on the offensive opening the lead up to 20-10. FHU finally closed it out a 2514. Freed-Hardeman got 20 kills from Fernanda Ferreira to go along with 15 from Rice and 10 from Montoya, who also led the team with 25 digs. Ferreira, meanwhile, had a total of eight blocks including four solo. 2010 TRANSOUTH VOLLEYBALL POSTSEASON HONORS Player of the Year: Thaise Vieira, Bethel Freshman of the Year: Paula Sioto, Martin Methodist Newcomer of the Year: Emmie Moroski, Union Coach of the Year: Kelly Elliott, Union First Team All-Conference Thaise Vieira, Bethel Fernanda Ferreira, F’-Hardeman Marcela Madeira, Union Ann-Kathrin Kuehhorn, M’ Meth.

But, like FHU later, it only took Milligan a little over two minutes to change the face of the game. The Buffaloes (3-3) scored on six straight trips to go on a 13-0 run, pulling within three points (51-48) on a 3-pointer by Johneshia Good. They soon took the lead for the first time since early in the game on a three-point play by Heather Mandela and still led 62-60 with 6:37 to play. But FHU tied the game on a pair of Whitney

players in uniform saw plenty of action as the Lady Lions cruised to an easy 96-34 win over Concordia College at Selma Thursday night in the Sports Center. The Lady Lions opened a quick 12-0 lead, and Concordia-Selma never got inside a double-digit deficit for the rest of the game. FHU led by as many as 24 in the first half before taking a 39-19 lead into the locker room, and followed by outscoring CCS 57-15 in the second half.

County schools salute brave veterans Chester County schools took part in Veterans Day Thursday by saluting those who have fought for American freedom. At West Chester Elementary, Captain Jeff Crawford took time out from his duties as Sr. ROTC instructor at the University of Tennessee

at Martin, to tell of his experiences in the Iraq war in 2004-05. Crawford served with the National Guard’s 194th engineers. Crawford also explained the origins of Veterans Day, and contrasted it with Memorial Day. He has 19 years in the guard, and has a son, Gavin, attending

He explained that even though the program is based in Martin, students attending FreedHardeman University and other area colleges can take part in ROTC through Jackson State Community College. At Chester County Middle School, several veterans were honored by family members, or other students attending CCMS, with the presentation of a certificate of appreciation and an American Flag pin. Col. Douglas H. Bixler, U.S. Army (retired) of Savannah, a veteran of the war in Iraq, spoke on the modern military men and women, and reflected on America’s military heritage. “As you can see, our Army is based on certain principles. These are beliefs that reflect leadership, and they are loyalty, duty,

The audience of mostly middle school students became somber as Bixler presented videos of remembrance of some of those who sacrificed their lives in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bixler noted, “The difference between a hero and a coward is not fear, but what you do with it. “Search out the truth,” Bixler challenged the students. “America’s future belongs to you.”

By Colette Carrabba Our pancake breakfast was a huge success! CCMS students sold over 1,100 tickets and on Saturday, everyone shared breakfast and fellowship in the CCMS cafeteria. The adult and student volunteers did a wonderful job organizing, cooking, serving and cleaning up. We want to thank each and every one who was there. Everyone has visited the Land of Oz, created by L. Frank Baum, in some fashion. But apparently, all is not wonderful in the Land of Oz! On Dec. 7, the mock trial of the People v. Dorothy Gale will be held. Come out and join the gifted and talented classes of Chester County at 6:30 p.m. at the Chester County Courthouse. Karen Callis’ class just finished “Rip, Tear, Fold & Mold” in science class;

the students were conducting experiments in physical changes. They are also learning about time and money in math and reading fables. Next week, Mrs. Callis’ class will be venturing into a laser light maze! In Cassie Cupples’ math class, her students are working with graphs and probability. Melanie Rhodes’ class is discovering “What Happened to the Turkey’s Feathers?” and learning about Christopher Columbus. Soldiers will soon be receiving letters from Diane Holdren’s class. Her class has also been learning about our solar system. Melissa Kinard’s next class 4-H service project will involve sponsoring a child from the CCHS Angel Tree. Joyce Fenimore’s class has worked on timelines in Social Studies. The students have created timeline posters of their own lives with pictures and factual details. Colette Carrabba’s class has finished their journey through Ancient India, and will be traveling along the Silk Road to Ancient China next. The

students want to thank Sarah Burton, FHU Practicum Student, for their Cookie Mining Experience! Mrs. Carrabba’s class has added three additional items to their Terracycle Recycling Brigades! In addition to chip bags, candy wrappers, cookie wrappers and juice pouches, they are also collecting any type of cheese packaging, Mission tortilla bags and ZipLoc style bags. The class has teamed up with several other teachers at CCMS to collect these items and keep them from our landfills. Each item earns the class money that is used to purchase supplies and equipment for the classrooms. Whitney Bennett congratulates Riley Malone, Josh Urzua, Maria Rodriguez and Hailey Yodushock for conquering the Word Wall. Students have been learning about the stars and the Milky Way. In the computer lab, sixth-graders have been working on their portfolios, putting pictures and descriptions in place. The fifth-graders are on a Math Adventure and the fourthgraders have been learning Menu Math.

Faculty, staff, and students wore their red, white, and blue on Veterans Day in honor of our service men and women. Teachers and students would also like to say thank you to Captain Jeff Crawford of the U.S. Army who was here on Veterans Day. He shared facts about Veterans Day and the students viewed pictures of the Iraqi culture and army camps. West Chester physical education students are finishing their fitness tests and working with the new student teacher, Brian Bullard. Coach Brian is originally from Cheatham County. You may recognize him from the Freed-Hardeman baseball team. Kindergarten teachers are very excited about their new teachers’ aide, Reba Hunt. Mrs. Reba started working with kindergarten students last week and we couldn’t be more pleased with what she accomplishes with our children. Sharon Miller’s class also had the chance to make their own butter! Yum! First-grade students have been reading and learning about animals

Jeff Crawford poses for a photo with one of the classes at West Chester Elementary following his presentation to the class about Veterans Day. and plants, their environments and basic needs for survival and growth. In math, they are learning about geometric shapes and comparing solid figures and plane shapes. First-graders have been busy working on a variety of long vowel sounds, suffixes and symmetry. They have also been learning about the first Thanksgiving and a variety of animal habitats. First-grade teachers would like to remind parents that all reading will be done independently after Christmas. Please go over sight words often and make sure your child is reading to you each night, even if only for a few minutes. This will help your child tremendously! Emily Brown would like to congratulate her first-grade class for reaching their “compliments” goal. Mrs. Emily made them a yummy treat to celebrate! Second-graders are working on adding and subtracting two-digit numbers with regrouping. Kelly Crowe’s class is taking timed adding math fact drills (0-9), so this is something that parents can work on with their child at home. Second-grade teachers are really working on making sure the students can write a complete sentence. We read a story about Rosa and Blanca and how these two sisters helped each other. We have been talking about how it is good to help other people.

The third grade had a wonderful time at the parent involvement meeting Thursday night. Sarah Hibbett joined us, and parents and students alike enjoyed learning math vocabulary and playing math games. Each family left with a bag of goodies to continue the fun at home. Cathy Whitehead’s class will be taking a virtual field trip to Plymouth Plantation on Tuesday. During this live web cast, they will join students from across the nation as they are taken on a guided tour of the plantation. Don’t forget about our pizza fundraiser going on at Skinner’s Food Mart through the month of November. When you purchase a Hunt Brothers Pizza, save the proof of purchase and return it to the school because we get $1 for every pizza sold. Tell your family and friends and let’s raise some easy money for our school! PTO will have “Fun Friday” for the children on Nov. 19. Any volunteers for this day will be greatly appreciated. Teachers enjoyed a very productive Professional Learning Community (PLC) meeting after school on Wednesday. There will be a total of 20 meetings throughout the school year. Remember there will be no school Nov. 24-26 for Thanksgiving. West Chester Elementary – Where Everyone Stands Tall.


CHESTER COUNTY INDEPENDENT • Thursday, November 18, 2010 Page 5-B

By Amber Murley Five students at Jacks Creek Elementary School recently received Reading Renaissance certificates for Accelerated Reader certification levels. Receiving the Ready

Reader Award is Meadow Elway (level 2). The Rising Reader Award for having 10 points and reading at least three books without help on 1.6 or above reading levels is Rayna Lynch. Receiving Super Reader Awards for reading independently at least three books worth 1 point each are Anna Moylan, Hailey Evans and Christopher Canaday. Kindergarteners began graphing this week in math. They are studying the letter R and discussing plots in stories. There were several Pilgrims and Indians this week in the

hall. The students dressed up and had a Thanksgiving feast. Second-graders have been very actively learning about verbs. They love pantomiming action verbs and guessing what their friends could possibly be doing. This definitely gets interesting. They are also playing “Verb Volcano.” In this game, students race to the top to find the correct verbs to complete sentences. Students are then able to use these verbs in writing their own stories at center time. Who would have ever guessed

that the English language could be so much fun? Third-graders have been busy telling time and reading calendars in math. Multiplication starts soon, so start practicing multiplication facts. This week’s story, “A Symphony of Whales,” discusses how whales communicate with one another. Did you know that whales actually “sing” to one another? School will be dismissed Nov. 24-26 for Thanksgiving. We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday. Remember to be thankful!

East Chester Fall Fest winners

East Chester Elementary School recently held is annual Fall Festival. Cake walk winners were, from left, Madlyn Maples, third place in “Best Decorated” with a scarecrow cake; Kendyl Davidson, first place in “Most Cakes” brought for the cake walk; Lillie McCarver, first place in “Best Decorated” with a bus cake; and Chandler Hinson, second place in “Best Decorated” with a haunted house cake.

By Ally Rogers The Eagles and Eaglettes played basketball games against Lexington and Selmer this week. They will face Hardin County Thursday night in a home game. I encourage you all to come and support our Junior High basketball teams, the cheerleaders and our fabulous Mascot! Frank Bell’s classes are working on designing islands in their study of the environment and bio-

diversity. The students have to come up with ways of powering the buildings on the island using alternative types of energy. They must also come up with a way of disposing waste that is created on the island. The “Create an Island” project allows the students to use higher order thinking skills to help create solutions to problems they encounter in the project. Stephanie Hatch’s class is studying recycling. They have created “trash pizza.” It isn’t as bad as it sounds! They are using skills that require them to determine what type of garbage is being thrown away and the amount of garbage wasted. They then create a pie chart in a pizza box to show the distribution of the amounts of

If you’ve been to the junior high lately and walked through the halls, you might have seen something hopping out of the corner of your eye! Tommie Kirk has two rabbits that now frequent our courtyard area. They even have their own cages and love being spoiled by eating leftover salad vegetables from lunch! They have been a fun addition to the scenery! Student Council will be sponsoring the Junior Miss Henderson Pageant on Dec. 4 in Williams Auditorium. Girls can pick up an application from one of the student council sponsors. These applications are due Friday. Admission for the pageant will be $5. Eighth-grade Beta stu-

‘The Healthy Mom’ reveals which veggies should make your table We all know we need to eat our veggies, especially with the new wave of processed food companies touting how their sauces and canned pastas now contain a full day’s allotment of vegetables — but Iva Young thinks that’s just a bit deceiving. “It’s a tricky definition of terms,” said Young, author of Healthy Mom (www.ivayoung.com). “It’s really not as healthy to eat processed foods to begin with, but for them to say that using vegetables as fillers somehow makes processed foods healthy is disingenuous, at best. It’s like saying ‘don’t pay attention to all the chemicals, dyes and sodium we put in the can — there’s vegetables in there, too, so that makes it all okay!’” Young believes that we need to eat actual vegetables if we want to have a real healthy diet, and there are five key veggies that top her list as the healthiest. They include: • Spinach — Popeye was right. Spinach is an excellent source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, Vitamin C, Vitamin B2, calcium, potassium and Vitamin B6. It’s also a good source of

fiber, copper, protein, phosphorous, zinc, Vitamin E, omega 3 fatty acids, niacin and anti-oxidants. • Lettuce (greenleaf, red leaf, romaine) — Lettuce is a low calorie fiber food that is also a great place to find Vitamin A, folic acid, lactucarium (which helps enhance calmness and pain relief), as well as the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. Lettuce also contains a good amount of anti-cancer properties. • Broccoli — Besides having great flavor and texture, Broccoli contains copious amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, beta carotene and Vitamin K. The minerals in broccoli include calcium, potassium, iron and folate. A great source of fiber, broccoli also provides lots of bioflavonoids, which is an antioxidant that helps protect against cancer and heart disease. • Brussels Sprouts — A staple in the diets of Asian cultures, who are among the longest lived people in the world, the crunchy garnish contains lots of potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, beta carotene and Vitamin K. • Cabbage — Although

best known as the partner of corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day, cabbage is a great low calorie food that contains a good amount of fiber, calcium and Vitamin C. Cabbage is incredibly packed with substantial anti-cancer agents. When picking vegetables, Young believes that fresh and frozen vegetables are better than canned vegetables, because they have less added salt. If you have to buy canned vegetables, she recommends draining the water they are packed in before preparing them to remove a good amount of the added sodium, or simply buy those veggies labeled as having low sodium. “Broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts also contain glucosinolates, which are known for their chemoprotective agents against chemicallyinduced carcinogens by blocking the initiation of tumors in the liver, colon, breasts and pancreas,” she added. “These anti-cancer compounds are released more effectively when you chop those vegetables before serving, and serving them raw increases the anti-cancer benefits even more.”

dents will be attending the annual Beta Convention in Nashville on Nov. 21-23. These students are to be commended for their outstanding grades and behavior. Anyone interested in joining Beta must bring their second nine-week report card to one of the Beta sponsors. You must have at least a 92.5 grade point average and have no ISS or OSS for the first semester. Progress reports go out on Thursday, Nov. 18. Be looking for those to come home then. Report cards won’t be given until Jan. 13. If you ever have any questions, email your child’s teacher and set up a time to discuss the grades. Don’t forget that the Chester County School System is observing Thanksgiving on Nov. 2426. I hope you all enjoy your break.
