School board to meet Considering naming an interim An interim for the position of Superintendent for the Chester County school district may be named as soon as next Thursday. The board has scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 in the school board meeting room at the home office to discuss the matter further. As outlined in last month’s meeting, the school board agreed at their upcoming September meeting they would convene and review the names they selected for interview for the interim position. Last month, current Chester County Supt. John Pipkin sent a list to each board member of all eligible interim candidates in the Chester County school district that would qualify. Pipkin informed approximately 18 local candidates meet the designated interim requirements. To meet qualifications to serve as interim faculty or staff members must have obtained their master’s degree in administration supervision. From the list of qualifiers, each board member was to nominate one for an interview, with the exception of Chairman Dwain Seaton who will no longer be serving on the board. However, the board elected to allow the newest board member, Norris Frank, to submit a name for consideration and interview. The interim interviews were scheduled to take place prior to this upcoming September meeting. The process for selecting a full-time superintendent is still underway and they will continue to accept applications until Sept. 30. To date, the school board has received five applications, two from Chester County, and others from Clarksville, Chicago, and North Carolina. Other items on the agenda include delegate the approval of school trips to the superintendent, consider changes to the policy manual, approve textbook committee, approve compliance assurances for 2010-2011, approve auditor for individual school accounts, and consider project for soccer program.

When Jacks Creek postal employee Lori Martin came to work Monday morning at 7 a.m. it was business as usual, until she noticed someone had taped a priority mail bag over the work room floor door. “I guess they did it so no one would immediately notice it had been broken into,” Martin stated. According to the Chester County Sheriff’s report, the door that leads to the back room had been pried open with a large screw driver or a crow bar, causing $300 worth of damage to the facility. Mail and various packages had been scattered around the room where authorities believe cash was the target of the burglary. Jacks Creek Post Office hosts approximately 90 boxes and according to the sheriff’s report most of them had been had been vandalized and rifled through. The report noted the only thing missing at the time seemed to be money orders. Martin said the burglary had to have taken place between

Community honors long-time city employee In normal circumstances when someone exits a place of unemployment after serving 30 years, they are usually cruising into retirement. For City Public Works Director Jerry King, he has desired to take the road less traveled and put it in drive towards a new adventure. King will be sworn in today (Wednesday) as the county road supervisor. The city of Henderson honored him with a luncheon Monday expressing their sincere appreciation for his dedicated service to the city and residents. “During this election I noticed a lot of the city residents didn’t really want to vote for Jerry for (county road superintendent), they were a little selfish,” Mayor Bobby King explained, “because they didn’t want to lose him as Public Works Director.” An appreciation plaque was awarded to (Jerry) King from Mayor King on behalf of the city of Henderson with Mayor King stating, “Whoever takes Jerry’s place has some big shoes to fill.” City Recorder Jim Garland, who once shared an office with King, presented his fellow co-

You can always count on him to be there when you needed him.” Former Mayor Eddy Patterson spoke similar words Monday, “Jerry was a loyal

employee, and he set the bar very high, and I know this city is going to miss you. “We wish you the best as you start this new chapter and I know you will continue to serve the public well.” But (Jerry) King was quick to mention he will still continue to keep up with city business. “I just can’t walk completely away from it after all that time,” King said sharing deep sentiments, “I spent 30 years with the city and that was my life.”

Authorities entered the East Main Street residence at approximately 10:15 p.m. last Thursday night (Aug. 26) and discovered evidence inside the home that led them to believe the resident was involved with drug trafficking.

To those that have dogs, which is probably 99 percent of us, I found that small quantities of grapes and raisins can cause renal failure in dogs. Chocolate, macadamia nuts, cooked onions, or anything with caffeine can also be harmful. Apple and pear seeds contain arsenic, which may be deadly to dogs. Just so you know. Mine would eat anything I give her. I knew about chocolate but not the other. A music trivia to you oldest but goodies out there: 1966, The Beatles played their last concert before a paying audience, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, Calif. to a soldout crowd of 25,000. John and Paul, knowing what the fans do not (that this will be the last concert ever) bring cameras on stage and take pictures between songs. During this tour, The Beatles have not played a single song from their latest album, ‘Revolver’. They finished the show with a version of Little Richards ‘Long Tall Sally’. Quote of the week: We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry or because they remain intrigued with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck... But part of it has got to be forgiveness and gratefulness. - Ellen Goodman Have a great week. Call me with you news at 8799777.

He braked for a group photo and then back to the wheel bent at 180 degrees. His Barbie doll sister, Braelyn, helped clear traffic, but once her foot was in the way of the mighty tow truck. No serious injuries and all construction crew headed home for a nap. Loving prayers are sent to Chris Young and our other friends, Billie Fletcher and Leon Carroll.

I hope Lois Wilkerson feels like writing news this week which includes Lois Rhodes making it back home Saturday and at church on Sunday. She visited Donette Ada in Illinois (Jamie met them halfway). Even up there Lois kept up with home news, and called Lounell Grissom to report it before it hit the press! That Rhodes woman must have a private eye in her life.

Happy anniversary to James and Heather Bullman on Sept. 2. I received a call from my daughter last Tuesday saying we needed to pick my 4-year-old grandson up at school, reason… he had stuck a rock up his nose. They tried unsuccessfully at school, so I met her at Prime Care. They put him in a chair and in comes our hero, Dr. McCarver. He took a look and asked, “Buddy, why did you put a

rock up your nose?” Will said, “Well, I thought it was a magic rock and if I put it in my nose, it would make me a superhero.” Need I tell you the laughter that went on in that room? When he went to school the next day, they asked how they go the rock out, to which he replied, they sucked it out with a vacuum cleaner! The same day, they were outside playing and he found another rock. He took it to his teacher to ask what kind it was, to which she quickly replied, “It’s not a magic rock Will!” If you have news, call 989-7523. Thought for the week: All people smile in the same language. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Labor Day.

Only Yesterday ‘Stadium Opens Friday Night’ From the files of the Chester County Independent August 29, 1940 “Senate Passes Conscription Bill Calling For 12,000,000 Men To Register For Military Service” “The first peace-time Conscription Bill in the history of the United States was passed last night by the Senate in a vote of 58 to 31, following weeks of debate. Before becoming law, however, it will have to pass the House, where the Military Committee is now engaged on such a measure. “The Draft Bill, subjecting the Nation’s young manhood to compulsory military training, requires all male citizens between 21 and 30 to register for the draft, some 12,000,000 in all.

He left the States early in January for Japan and has been engaged in the fighting in Korea since the early part of the war.” “Korean War Situation Is Indeed Grave” “Word from Tokyo at mid-week told of a big battle last Wednesday, when 20,000 North Korean Communists, supported by artillery, made a bid for the port city of Pohang, while other thousands of Reds drove into U. S. forces threatening the supply base of Taegu. “Both of these advances by the reds gained slight ground and General

Happy anniversary to Denny and Bernice Maness on Sept. 16. The cotton is beginning to open around Hickory Corner. Many of us remember picking cotton in the ‘40s and ‘50s. The schools would dismiss around six weeks in the

fall for picking cotton. If you lived on a farm, everybody in the family worked hard. It was necessary for the family to survive. The farmers competed against each other to try to be the first to gin a bale of cotton. Instructions for picking cotton: Use your hand and circle your fingers around the boll of cotton from the top and your other hand keeps hold of the stem, squeeze the fingers at the base of the cotton and pull the boll of cotton out and put it in your sack; repeat until you fill the sack. The mechanical pickers ended the hand picking in the south in the 1960s. Old sayings are: “Wait just a cotton pickin’ minute.” “You’re out of your cotton pickin’ mind.” “You’re a cotton pickin’ fool.” Call me with news, 9893315.

Dramatic increase expected in state’s Labor Day travel Labor Day travel in the state of Tennessee is projected to increase 9.7 percent this year from 2009, with more than 658 thousand Tennessee residents taking a trip of 50 miles or more away from home between Thursday, Sept. 2 and Monday, Sept. 6. Overall, travel in the East South Central region of the U.S. is projected to increase 8.5 percent from last year with more than 1.7 million travelers. Much like other summer holidays, Labor Day is mostly comprised of auto travelers. This year, more than 629 thousand Tennesseans are expected to travel by automobile, an increase of 9.9 percent from last year. Barring any major tropical storm activity in the Gulf Coast region, AAA expects the average price of regular retail gasoline in Tennessee to be between $2.50 and $2.60 per gallon this holiday weekend. Air travel and travel by other modes are also expected to increase by 4.5 percent and 5.5 percent in the

state, respectively. “Labor Day typically marks the end of summer travel and we’re seeing more people deciding to take one last summer trip before the fall,” said Brent Hubele, Vice President, AAA Travel. “This is great news as travel projections are up overall, not only in the state and region, but in the country as a whole.” Total U.S. travel is projected to increase almost 10 percent with more than 34.4 million Americans taking a trip of 50 miles or more this Labor Day weekend. Although the East South Central region is expected see an increase in travel, the year-over-year growth is less than the national holiday growth forecast of 9.9 percent because the region is still fighting back losses in the manufacturing sector which accounts for 12 percent of total employment in the region. “The East South Central region has only begun to recover, but the positive momentum building in 2010 will help the

region toward a fuller recovery in the future,” said Hubele. “The good news is this region is moving in a positive direction from last year with a healthy increase in Labor Day travel.” Tennessee contributes the largest amount of tourism output in the east south central region with 42 percent. Median spending increases; average distance traveled decreases Based on a survey of traveler intentions, the average distance traveled by Americans this Labor Day holiday weekend is expected to be 635 miles, slightly less than one year ago (645 miles). Median spending is expected to be $697 this Labor Day, nearly $50 more than last year when median spending was estimated at $650. Dining (63 percent); shopping (47 percent) and visiting with friends and relatives (43 percent) were named as the three top primary activities by travelers this Labor Day weekend.

Airfares, hotel and rental car rates increase over holiday compared to last year

According to AAA’s Leisure Travel Index, airfares over the Labor Day holiday weekend are expected to increase nine percent from last year with the lowest round-trip rates moving up to $179 for the top 40 U.S. air routes. Weekend daily car rental rates will increase seven percent to an average of $46. Hotel rates for AAA Three Diamond lodgings are expected to increase six percent from a year ago with travelers spending an average of $139 per night compared to $132 last year. Travelers planning to stay at AAA Two Diamond hotels can expect to pay two percent more at an average cost of $102 per night. AAA offers a variety of travel planning tools including free TourBook travel guides and maps for members and the TripTik® Travel Planner, available free to all travelers at AAA.com.

Do you know some people who are never sick? They seem to evade catching a cold and are just plain “lucky”. You can be “lucky” and build a stronger immune system by adopting a few simple habits in your everyday routine. Adjust your thinking. Your thoughts influence how well your body functions so stress, anxiety, a pessimistic attitude or even the expectation that you’ll get sick, may make you more prone to illness! Stay positive. Reduce stress in your life. A good massage or more daily laughter may help. Do something you enjoy every day and look for the silver lining in everything! Make better choices for your body. What you eat and your activity level greatly influences your ability to resist stress. Getting enough quality sleep is equally important. And, the number one way to prevent illness is as simple as washing your hands properly. As you get older, these things are even more critical. Eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables and choose more whole grains. Make a list of things that keep you awake and take care of those things as soon as you can. Remember to wash your hands several times throughout the day, with warm water and soap, and scrub for at least 20 seconds each time. Make improvements in your social life. Positive relationships have a protective effect on your health. Studies reveal that pet owners get sick less often! A strong spiritual connection has shown to have a positive effect on your life. Widen your social circle to include more positive people. Consider getting a pet, even a goldfish – besides they are relaxing to watch! Practice regular meditation or prayer and look for ways you can volunteer in your community. By making some of these small changes you are taking steps to improve the quality of your life. These simple solutions to stay healthy are easy and most people can improve their health by incorporating them into their everyday routine. It is important to be aware that some people may want to consult their health care provider if a crucial health problem is identified.

Gleaners House takes mission seriously Dear Editor, I would like to address all of the Tummins family. Because of a clerical mistake in our files that I misunderstood, I turned Mrs. Tummins away. When I realized my error I tried to contact her unsuccessfully, but I persisted until I was able to reach her with a sincere apology which she accepted. I asked her to come in for help. She received assistance. If there is any other way that we can be of assistance, we will do so. We at Gleaners take our mission given to us by God very seriously. We only turn people away if there is a very good reason and only then with much prayer and sorrow. The needs in our community are very great. We do not have the resources to meet all the needs so we must make regrettable choices. Sometimes we run out of money or money becomes very low so we must limit or refuse assistance. We regret not always being able to help. Please pray for this very important mission that is helping so many people. We at Gleaners love and care for everyone that comes through our doors. Sincerely, Judy Kilpatrick

Labor Day, pickin’ cotton and the colors of fall By Judy Maness Jones Guest Columnist

Labor Day is not the star spangled holiday that Independence Day is. The Fourth of July makes some Americans want to display the flag and set off fireworks, while Labor Day signals the end of summer, which makes it a little sad. When Labor Day comes around each year the outdoor pools close for the year, and it is also the beginning of football season. Soon after the leaves have the first colors of fall, the days are shorter, and the weather begins to cool down. The coolness in the air reminds me that the fall harvest is just beginning. As a child in Tennessee, my family’s first priority was not celebrating Labor Day, but it meant the beginning of the cotton harvest. The first cotton of the season was harvested in early September; therefore as a child, Labor Day to me meant the end of summer and the start of picking cotton. Even the Chester County school schedule planned around the harvest season. In May the school would close for a few weeks, and the children who lived on farms would help plant and weed the crops. Then school would resume for a few weeks during the hot weather, and then close again in late August for the harvest of the cotton. Most likely the farmers in Chester County would have violated a few of today’s child labor laws had they been in effect. The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated in New York City on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882. President Grover Cleveland made Labor Day an official holiday in 1894 to appease the nation’s workers after the killing of several union members involved in the Pullman strike. It is considered the “workingman’s holiday.” As for Labor Day in western Tennessee, farmers are still more concerned with their cotton crops than celebrating Labor Day. The cotton field when it is ready to harvest is also part of Mother Nature’s handy work, the white cotton just as beautiful as the other colors of autumn. Western Tennessee has rich soil that grows a high grade of cotton and growing cotton here is part of the culture. Other places around the world have a history of cotton. When Christopher Columbus came to America in 1492, he also found cotton growing in the Bahamas and by the year 1500, cotton was used throughout the world. Those things did not matter when we were picking cotton; what mattered to us was getting the cotton crop harvested before the weather turned bad. We used the money we made from picking cotton to buy school clothes and other things we needed. Tennessee has changed since I was a child. Machines pick almost all of the cotton now and the schools do not revolve around the cotton harvest. While I am happy that my children never had to pick cotton, I appreciate cotton’s importance to the economy of Tennessee, and Labor Day will always remind me of pickin’ cotton and the beautiful scenery that soon will be appearing.

Invasion of U.S. census workers times five The 2010 United States Census is now complete. We, the People, have been counted. It was done under budget, and the Census Bureau deserves praise for saving taxpayers over $1.5 billion More people, it seems, filled out and mailed back their forms. I can hold up my hand as one of the conscientious Americans proud to become part of the national statistical update. Now, if I could figure out why census workers stopped five times at my farm to inquire about “a log cabin behind a locked gate,” I’d be a well-satisfied citizen. Five different temporary Census Bureau employees apparently were convinced I was hiding a family of illegal immigrants in a nonexistent log cabin somewhere on my farm. They were determined that the cabin’s occupants should be duly counted. The first visit was enjoyable. The young lady, presumably a college student, was just plain lost. We gave her a glass of ice water and directions, assured her we had reported ourselves to the Census Bureau as required by law and waved goodbye as she resumed her mission. The car stopped halfway down our driveway and she rolled the window down. “Is there a log cabin down this road? It’s supposed to be behind a locked gate,” she asked. No such residence, weekend getaway or hunting

camp was, to our knowledge, located within miles. The next weekend, a stocky man in his 40s waved me down. I stopped the tractor and noted his Census Bureau nametag. He was sweating and sunburned and not in a good mood. “I want to know about this log cabin,” he demanded. “Why is the gate locked?” “Did you find the log cabin behind a locked gate?” “That’s why I am asking you,” he huffed. It took me 30 seconds to explain that the mystery cabin did not exist on our farm and 15 seconds to chivvy him away in a cloud of dust and flying gravel. Something I said about mean dogs must have had an effect. I didn’t like his attitude, any way. Less than five days later – at 9 p.m. as my wife and I enjoyed the twilight and lightning bugs on our patio – a census supervisor appeared out of the shadows. She had her children in tow, all four of them, along with her husband, a clipboard, a harried expression and a diaper bag. We invited her to sit. The kids played with the dogs, mutts that aren’t mean at all, and she popped the question about the log cabin. For the third time, we confessed to having no idea where this myth had originated or why it couldn’t be put to rest based on our name and good character. I offered to sign an affidavit in front

of a notary. “I am sure we can get this cleared up,” she promised, scribbling notes on her clipboard. “Can I use your microwave to heat a bottle?” So it was reasonable to believe at long last the U.S. government was through with us. Little did we suspect, the quest to find the Census Bureau’s lost but legendary cabin would continue next Sunday. Like Job from the scriptures, I would be sorely tested. I was sitting inside the barn, gazing out at dark clouds and listening to thunder boom, lightning crackle and rain sheet on the tin roof, when a car drove up. I donned a raincoat and braved the deluge to see if it was someone with motor trouble or out of gas. It was the fourth census taker! Another young lady, she too was part of the crusade to find a locked gate. “I am certain there’s a log cabin some-

where behind it,” she said hopefully. I simply stood there, dripping water, staring open-mouthed, completely dumb-founded. She must have feared I was mentally impaired from my twitching and gibbering. As she backed down the drive, nervously watching to see if I would produce a chainsaw from beneath the folds of my rubber slicker and chase after her, a pickup trucked pulled onto the verge and a young man exited, holding a clipboard over his head. The fifth and final census employee had arrived. I felt it in my bones. But then came inspiration! Before he could speak, I pointed at the young lady’s car trundling down the road in the pelting rain and said, “She knows where the log cabin is… the one behind the locked gate! Hurry or you will lose her.” I haven’t seen a temporary government employee since.

Independent seeks CC kindergarteners for “Growing up” series, deadline extended The life of a child is an ever-changing one, unpredictable in most cases: the possibilities of life are unlimited when you are age 5. The Chester County Independent is seeking several Chester County kindergarteners for a long-term series entitled “Growing up in Chester County.” We will introduce these children at the Chester County Barbecue Festival, and follow them over the next 13 years or so, throughout their Chester County school career within the pages of the Independent. We are excited to introduce this new series to our readers, and excited about the opportunity.

UT Extension news By Brian Signaigo UT Extension Agent

We are still getting calls about the dreaded fall armyworm, both in pastures and hay fields AND in home lawns. They are ferocious eaters and will occasionally feed on fruit trees, vegetables and flowers. If you have them, control is pretty much necessary. Call us at 9892103 for control techniques. The county 4-H clubs will start organizing in the schools in September. We’ll have much to share

with the 4-H members and certainly want parents/guardians involved as well. We always need adult volunteers to assist with 4-H activities/events. To find out more, call the 4-H office at 989-2103. The Master Beef Producer Program will be conducted again this fall.

Featured children will be chosen by a random drawing in the next few weeks. There are no requirements other than that the child must be beginning kindergarten and live in Chester County. If you would like your child to be included in this series, send entries to Growing up in Chester County at The Chester County Independent, P.O. Box 306, Henderson, TN, 38340. Entries should include your child’s name, age, parent or guardian, phone number, address, and what your child wants to be when he/she grows up. The deadline for entry has been extended to Wednesday, Sept. 22. This fee-based program consists of 10 – 12 threehour classes on just about every aspect of beef cattle production. Successful graduates also qualify for increased cost share through Tennessee’s Ag Enhancement program. If interested, call the UT Extension office at 9892103.

Finally, we have moved to our new office. We are located in the Public Safety Building (behind the courthouse). Our phone number is still the same, and our new address is 126 Crook Ave. We’re planning an open house when we get everything completed will certainly invite everyone.

Visitors are always a pleasant surprise for the residents of Southern Oaks, especially when it’s your great-granddaughter. Wendell Bloomingburg received just such a surprise when Olivia Isenberg of Oklahoma City came calling recently.

Happy birthday wishes go to Stan O’Neal on Sept. 2; Paige Haley on Sept. 3; Denise Keen, Steven Grisham and Larry Lambert on Sept. 4; Ryan Fletcher on Sept. 6; and Judy Rogers and Mason Weeks on Sept. 7. Happy anniversary to Jerry and Nancy Freeman on Sept. 8. Sept. 6 is Labor Day. The man who doesn’t relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then, is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head for the edification of the pathologist and the trained nurse, a little later on. Elbert Hubbard. The Enville Community Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 7. We would like to invite everyone in the community to join us. This meeting will be held outdoors, as we will be having a Flag Retirement Ceremony. If you have a flag that needs to be put to rest, bring it at this time. For more information, call Linda Phillips at 688-5470. The senior luncheon will be at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 8, at the United Methodist Church. The Community Club board members worked hard planning the annual Enville Fun Day event. The day began for some at the crack-of-dawn with members of the Enville Volunteer Fire Department putting on chickens and bologna to

barbecue. The parade was shortbut-sweet with Enville and Saltillo fire trucks; Henderson city officials, horses, 4-wheelers, golf carts, a bicycle, and even a tractor. Some were from Huntingdon. Thank you to all who participated. Many guys and gals had a great time in the dunking booth, as did those who wanted to dunk them. Congratulations to all who succeeded. The kids also enjoyed seeing Air-Evac; playing football; riding the mechanical bull; and getting their faces painted by April Crowell, who did a great job. Many also had a good time in the cakewalk and the auction for the homemade brooms that were donated by Eddie Hockaday. Rumor has it; these brooms will last for years and years. Young and older alike enjoyed the street dance, and those who didn’t dance got a kick out of watching the ones who did. Jeremy’s son wanted to know if he danced with Jim’s granddaughter, if that would be considered a date. Hmm, that brought back some memories. The two of them danced and danced with smiles ear to ear. It was exhilarating watching the kids have so much fun. Singers included April Johnson Collins, the Thomas-Maness Family, Dorothy Quinn (Savannah), The Randy Garrand Band, and others (for whom I apologize for not catching your names). Thank you for keeping the music flowing and sharing your talent with us, you were all wonderful. Congratulations to the winners of the raffle tickets. Nancy Weeks won

$50 and Jane Whitten won $100. Linda Phillips (Club President) would like to thank everyone who worked so hard before, during, and after this event. Along with Eddie Hockaday for the home made brooms; Air-Evac for coming out; Selmer Jaycees for the dunking booth; Double D’s Ranch for the mechanical bull; EVFD, all the singers; and Henderson Co-op for loaning the trough. We hope everyone had a great time and would like to “thank you” for your continuous support. Occasionally in life, there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart. – Martin Luther King, Jr. If you have an event coming up, a birthday, anniversary, or any news, call me at 989-0212 or email envillecommunitynews@yahoo.com or wildgoosenews@aol.com.

Enville Fun Days officially got started Saturday afternoon with a parade through downtown. There were fire trucks, politicians, tractors, horses, and wagons. Later on in the day there was plenty of music, plus a street dance. Photos by James A. Webb, Independent

Lady Lions looking to make conference history Will go for fourth straight regular season title The last three seasons have brought a long list of “firsts” to the FreedHardeman volleyball program, from conference championships to a national tournament appearance. This year, the Lady Lions have a chance to bring a first to the TranSouth Conference. FHU will look to win its fourth consecutive regular season conference title, something that no team has done in the existence of the TSAC. Only one other program - Lee University, now a member of the Southern States Athletic Conference - has pulled off the three-peat, doing it twice from 19961998 and from 2001-2003. Freed-Hardeman has won the last three regular season banners, posting a combined conference record of 42-4 during that span. However, last season saw several teams in conference improve their levels of play and that improvement, coupled with some key front row losses for the Lady Lions, means pulling off the unprecedented four-peat will be a challenge. The attack will look significantly different from

last season with the team’s top two hitters Diana Silva (4.0 kills/game) and Nataly Gutierrez (3.3 kills/game) - needing to be replaced. Silva, the conference player of the year, transferred to NCAA Division I University of Tulsa, while Gutierrez will red-shirt at FHU this season. Also gone is right-side hitter Karim Raymond, who averaged 1.9 kills per game. “We will truly miss Diana from last year’s squad,” said Humphry. “She was a player that we depended on a lot last season. Any time you have to do without an AllAmerican type player it will have an impact on your team. Karim will also leave a void on the right side this season. Her leadership alone will have a impact on our team.” However, that doesn’t mean the Lady Lions will struggle with their attack. Junior Sydney Rice, a twotime first-team all-conference selection, returns as does three-year starter Claire Pennington who spent more time on the back row last year but will likely return to the left side. Rice averaged 2.9 kills per game last season

2010 Freed-Hardeman University Lady Lion volleyball team Freed-Hardeman University’s Lady Lion volleyball team is set to open its season at 7 p.m. Sept. 7 at home with Christian Brothers University at the Sports Center. Members of the team include, front row from left: Claire Pennington, Carissa Foshee, Callie West, Amber Turner, Hannah Claiborne, and Rachelle Prince; and back row: head coach Todd Humphry, Olivia Sims, Sydney Rice, Nataly Gutierrez, Hunter Logan, Callie West, Fernanda Ferreira, Renata Ferreira, Jasmine Johnson, and assistant coach Martha Sheffield. and led the team in blocks with 124. Pennington is the team’s lone senior this year. “Claire is a three-year starter and a leader for our team,” Humphry said. “She could be the glue that keeps us together this season. Sydney will be depended on more this season. Sydney is dominating player in the middle both on the offense and defense.” Additionally, FHU will

welcome Fernanda Ferreira back to the floor after missing 2009 with an injury. Ferreira was an AVCA All-American as a freshman in 2008 after averaging 3.3 kills per game. “Fernanda had to sit out last season due to injury but we will gladly welcome her back to our lineup this season,” said Humphry. “She will really add to our net play.” Also returning on the

Penalty marred game drops CC to 0-2 Time and time again Friday, the Chester County Eagles’ came up with key plays to keep the Hardin County Tigers out of the end zone. However, the visitors to Eagle Stadium stopped Chester County’s offense almost cold, in defeating CCHS 19-6, dropping the Eagles to 0-2 on the season, while Hardin County improved to 1-0. It’s been a frustrating beginning to the season for the Eagles who dominated their first opponent everywhere but the scoreboard, and had some chances against Hardin County taken away by penalty. But the real culprit may have been the physical play of the Tigers who dominated the line of scrimmage for much of the evening. “We function best when we establish base plays, and everything flows off that,” said Chester County head coach Jeff Cupples. “They controlled line tonight, and we could not get our fullback going, could not get our trap going. All those plays that work for us we were just getting beat. “When we switched to sweeps, their linebackers were running through our wings and knocking our guards off. So we just beat in the box tonight,” he concluded. After an exchange of series, Hardin County scored first on a four-yard run late in the first period, culminating a 50-yard drive which saw them convert a 17-yard pass on third down and 13 to go. Hardin County threatened again with under two minutes to play, when Chester County’s Derek Platt sacked Hardin County quarterback Barker Burnham inside the Eagles’ five-yard line, and stole the ball, also.

front row is Hunter Logan, an outside hitter who saw limited action last season. She will be needed to add depth at the position this year as will freshmen Olivia Sims (Pelham, Ala.) and Jasmine Johnson (Alamo) as well as junior Sandra Montoya, a transfer from Miami-Dade Community College. Humphry will have several options at setter with two returnees and another newcomer all expected to

vie for time at the position. Amber Turner started at the position last season, ranking ninth in the NAIA with an average of 10.9 assists per game. Carissa Foshee also saw time as a backup. However, Humphry also expects freshman Renata Ferreira (Contagem, Brazil) to compete for the spot. Sophomore libero Callie West returns to lead the See FHU, Page 3-B

Matthew Butler runs the ball for Chester County in their 19-6 loss at home to Hardin County Friday at Eagle Stadium. Butler later had a 47-yard run for the Eagles’ only score.

Eagles must beware of Fayette

The Eagles managed one first down, and had a chance to run out the clock, but a poor punt set up the visitors at the CCHS 24 yard line, and the Tigers took only two plays to score again with only seven ticks left on the second period clock. Now ahead 13-0, Hardin County kept CCHS bottled up on the Eagles’ end of the field. The ball remained on the CCHS side of the 50-yard line until six minutes remained in the contest when CCHS managed two first downs, and scored their only points on Matthew Butler’s 47-yard run. The Eagles appeared to draw even closer on the scoreboard when Ryan Turner returned a punt 75

A Chester County team, hungry for a win after two frustrating loses, travels to Somerville for a 7 p.m. football game against Fayette-Ware Friday. CCHS has been in the middle of two contests it feels were winnable, while the host Wildcats are coming off a 42-0 shellacking at the hands of Hillcrest. Chester County got three starters back on the field last week after sitting out several weeks with injuries. One of those three, Derek Platt, played well enough to grab Player of the Week honors. Eagle head coach Jeff Cupples is concerned with the speed that the Wildcats always seem to have. “Fayette-Ware will be faster (than Chester County’s first two opponents),” warned Cupples. “They may not execute, but if we don’t execute they will score in a hurry. We have to make sure every gap is covered, every pass covered. We got three players back, and hopefully these guys will be even healthier this week.” Interestingly, the winless Eagles at the winless Wildcats is the norm in District 14-AA. Liberty, 2-0, the defending league champs, is the only team in the district with a victory so far in the young season. Other district games this week include McNairy Central, 0-1, hosting Bolivar Central, 0-1; Liberty is at Jackson-Central Merry, 0-1; and South Side, 0-1, at Lexington, 0-1.

yards for an apparent touchdown with 1:47 to play in the game. However, CCHS was called for a block in the back, and the game soon

ended with the 19-6 final score. Cupples said CCHS had “complete breakdowns mentally” on some plays, including seven penalties for 58 yards, some emotional mistakes, and had players not available when called upon which forced him to use valuable timeouts. A week after a fiveturnover fiasco at

Adamsville, the Eagles were giveaway free against Hardin County, but interceptions by Turner and Dillon Williams came on fourth and long for the Tigers, giving the Eagles the ball not near mid-field but deep in their own territory. Also the kicking game, while improving, had its troubles also, once giving up the ball on their own one-yard line. “We’ve got to go back to football 101,” stressed Cupples. “We still missed some switches on pass coverages. We’re just not learning from our mistakes.” Hardin County had its share of mistakes also. The Tigers were flagged 10 times for 75 yards, nullifying one touchdown.

Nation’s top point guard commits to Lady Vols Ariel Massengale, a 5’6 point guard from Bolingbrook, Ill., had recently narrowed her finalists to Tennessee, Kentucky, Duke and Florida, but the Lady Vols had been her “dream school,” and she made it official last week with a phone call to Pat Summitt. “I told her that I wanted to be a Lady

Volunteer,” Massengale said. “It was a dream. I have always wanted to play at Tennessee. My family visits Tennessee. Both my parents are from Tennessee and when I was younger that was my dream, and I worked hard every day. For more information on Massengale, go online to www.insidetennessee.com.

Experienced Lady Lions look for improvement It is a rare situation for a team to return all its starters from the previous season, but that is the situation that exists for the Freed-Hardeman Lady Lion soccer team as the 2010 season begins. The 2009 squad had no seniors on the roster and while a handful of players did not return from that team, the core group of players will return to the

field for FHU as the new season kicks off in August when head coach Jason Elliott begins his 10th season. “Our 2009 season was marked by injuries as many games we had up to five and six keyplayers out of matches,” said Elliott. “I think our freshman class has added some much-needed depth to

help when people are injured. I would look for big things out of this group but some will need to develop which is why our upperclassmen are so important.” Leading the way will be returning captains and allconference selections Tiffany Harris and Nikki Ceeney. The rest of the senior class - Lindsay Riggs,

Lion soccer ready to big take step forward Coming off a nine-win campaign in 2009 that saw the Lions have one the best offensive seasons in program history, the Freed-Hardeman University soccer team returns eight starters and three of its top four goalscorers including Ryan Engineer, whose 19 goals were best on the squad. “Our men left several games out there in 2009 and they are ready to play this season,” said 10th year head coach Jason Elliott. “We return a lot of key players and have added others. I think if we play together this season then we can be very strong.” This year’s team will be

heavy on experience with six seniors and eight returning starters, but also welcomes a recruiting class with a lot of potential that Elliott expects to strengthen the midfield right away. “Our senior leadership and play will take us as far as we can go,” Elliott said. “I think we will be a much more dangerous team this year. Teams will come in concerned about what we have in the midfield and up top. Our new players have added a lot to our team and they are really improving. Guilherme Dorigo has stood out in the midfield and Brandon Stamey has done well in goal for a freshman.”

Yegros is Player of the Week Helena Yegros, of Freed-Hardeman University, has been named the TranSouth Athletic Conference’s women’s soccer player of the week for the week ending Sunday, Aug 29. Yegros, a 5-foot-5 forward/midfielder from Asuncion, Paraguay, tied her mark for goals in a season over the course of one week, getting four goals to help the Lady Lions to their best start in program history. She scored twice and added an assist in FHU’s 5-0 win over Atlanta Christian College on Aug. 23, then followed with two more goals on Aug. 26 as the Lady Lions played to a 22 tie with Pikeville College. This marks her first time to win the award. The last Lady Lion to take the honor was Whitney Newby, who was named the conference’s player of the week in September of last year. Freed-Hardeman (3-0-1) returns to action at 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 3, against Lambuth University in the team’s home opener.

FHU defense after being named second-team all-conference last season. She averaged 2.9 digs per game and should be even better this season after last year’s experience. Rachelle Prince also returns to the back row. Versatile freshman Hannah Claiborne (Murfreesboro) is also an option to see time on the defense. This year’s schedule includes matches against teams that are perennially ranked in the NAIA’s top 25 including Lindenwood, Olivet Nazarene, and Georgetown College. The season opens at home on Sept. 7 against NCAA Division II Christian Brothers University. For the third straight

year, TranSouth Conference coaches voted the Lady Lions as the preseason favorite to repeat as conference champions but Humphry realizes doing so won’t be an easy path. “We know that everyone will be gunning for us this season but I feel we are going to be up to the task,” he said. “We will be a little different on offense without Silva this season but our defense should remain strong. Big seasons are expected from our upperclassmen and I look for leadership from our lone senior Claire Pennington.” “[Being voted] pre-season No. 1 was an honor but I know we will be pushed by every team and especially by the No. 2 pre-season team, Union University, who finished runner up to us last season.”

Hot temperatures across the mid-south have made scheduling and running practices a bit more complicated than usual, but Elliott is pleased with how his players have dealt with the heat. “We have lots of competition in almost every position which has made the guys better.”

Cassie Perkins and Leanne Harbach - have all been starters at various points in their careers. “This year will be

important for our team as we need to improve our play in the conference and our seniors will lead us to do that,” Elliot said. “Our

senior class has done a lot for our program and I expect big things from them this year led by Tiffany and Nikki.”

Playing that Memphis sound

Michael Christy on the trumpet and Cullen Bonds on the drums help the Chester County Marching Eagles band entertain the crowd Friday at the CCHS football game. Part of the band’s performance included tunes made famous by Memphis artists Isaac Hayes and Elvis Presley.

By Rosemary McKnight East Chester has been a busy place. Just ask our PTO! The PTO Membership drive ended on Friday and was a huge success. Classes are waiting to hear who got the most members. PTO treated students to their first Fantastic Friday. Students have been working hard to keep the restrooms clean, and their effort was rewarded with Cool Pops. The PTO catalog sale began this week. There are a lot of nice items for less than $10 in the catalog, so see any East Chester student to help with this fundraiser. It is a great way to do a little Christmas shopping. PTO is sponsoring “Thankful Thursday” this year as a way to show teachers they are thankful

By Tangie Sweatman It is hard to believe that August is now history, and September is here! School is in full swing at West Chester! The kindergarten students have been very busy learning the rules and making new friends. They have also had a lot of fun learning how to read their first words. First-grade students have been reading stories about animals. We have learned about how to care for pets, how to help ani-

for their hard work. A drawing will be held each week for a special treat. Last week Kim Murphy’s name was drawn. She received a gift certificate for a manicure from Shapers. PTO is already beginning to prepare for the annual Fall Festival. They are asking parents to send a gallon-sized can of green beans during the month of September. These will be used in the turkey and dressing dinner. We are grateful for all East Chester’s PTO does. East Chester welcomes three student teachers from Freed-Hardeman University. Jill Rhodes is with Leslie Hunt’s first grade. Megan Marshall is working with Brandy Johnson’s kindergarten class, and Janelle Tavernit is with Kim Murphy’s third-grade class. The Healthy School Team met last Tuesday. This team works on ways to keep both students and staff healthy and safe. They discussed the need for healthy snacks for students. They also made plans for Red Ribbon Week, Fire Prevention Week, and Halloween

safety. More will be said about these plans in upcoming weeks. Our “special” classes are doing great things. Janice Brown and Chad Hanna work on state standards in their physical education classes. Kindergarten and firstgrade classes are currently working on the locomotor skills of skipping and galloping. Second- and third-grade classes are participating in games that reinforce teamwork and cooperation. Students go to P.E. class each day and need to wear tennis shoes. Dr. Belinda Anderson’s Young Scholar’s Program for gifted students has been helping students develop research skills. This week they are making oral presentations on their Family Album Projects, working in a “Secret Agent Work Folder” on math mind builders, and finding out if they are left or right brained. Gifted classes meet once each week. Each morning Principal Kim Scott has two students participate in the morning announcements. One student reads an interesting fact from that day in history and the sec-

ond student reminds everyone of the word of the week. These are words that are used in higher level thinking questions. So far this year students have learned the words “trace,” “analyze,” and “infer.” Students are earning SOAR tickets once again. The tickets target specific behaviors. Last week students worked on saying “Yes, mam,” “Please,” and “Thank you.” This week SOAR tickets have been given for good cafeteria behavior. A drawing is held each Friday from all those who received SOAR tickets, and those students receive a special treat at lunch from Mrs. Kim and Mrs. Spring. Visitors may have wondered who let the dogs out in the second-grade classes last week. Students enjoyed reading about Henry and his dog Mudge. Carrie Sells found out she has some future Hollywood stars in her class when they acted out a Henry and Mudge skit. School will be dismissed for students on Friday and Monday for Labor Day. Teachers will be in staff development on Friday.

mals, and how animals can help people. We have been reviewing the short vowel sounds and learning about the different parts of a sentence. In math, we are continuing with addition and subtraction. Second-graders have enjoyed reading about Henry and Mudge. We learned several camping terms. We also began recording AR points in our logs. Thanks to Mrs. Starla and Mrs. Becky for getting these ready for us. The third-grade classes are continuing to work hard. Since map skills are an important part of the social studies curriculum, Cathy Whitehead’s thirdgraders are using these skills to track a mountain climber on Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania using the Internet. They are excited about this adventure. The West Chester fami-

ly welcomes two student teachers, Kayla Taylor and Brian Bullard. Miss Taylor attends Freed-Hardeman University and is joining Heather Melton’s thirdgrade class. Mr. Bullard also attends FHU and is joining Todd Lewis in the physical education classes. Our PTO officers have been quite busy this week as our membership drive concluded. The winners of the membership drive are: First place, Cheyenne Smith (43 members); second place, Zoey Zdravkov (42 members); and third place (tie), Tiffany Decker and Evan Hutcherson (23 members each). Classes with 100 percent participation included Susan Brown (first grade), Kelly Crowe (second grade),

Jean Smith (second grade), Heather Melton (third grade), Marti McDaniel (third grade), and Cathy Whitehead (third grade). Marti McDaniel’s third-grade class brought in 100 PTO members! Thanks to our parents, students, and PTO officers for their hard work and support for our school. Our first PTO meeting will be Thursday, Sept. 2, in the school cafeteria. Progress reports will be sent home on Thursday, Sept. 2. School will be dismissed on Friday, Sept. 3, and Monday, Sept. 6. We hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend! W E S T- W h e r e Everyone Stands Tall!

ed around 2 p.m. The staff at the junior high is committed to helping students stay on top of their assignments. The “I.C.U Program” has been implemented to help teachers help ALL students who are missing assignments. If a student has not turned in an assignment, then their name will be placed on a document for all teachers to go over. The extra 10 minutes in fifth period will be spent helping the students get the work done. It will also be used other times when a teacher has extra time to help. If a student seems to be on the list repeatedly, due to lack of effort, then that student will be assigned detention at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday morning. We do not believe in giving zeros. We want students to be successful and responsible. Parent teacher conferences will be held from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 7, and from 8-11 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 8. Pictures were given out to the students who purchased them. If you are

unhappy with yours, remake picture day will be Sept. 24. Lifetouch offers a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee, so be sure to put this date down, if this applies to you. Come support your favorite Eagle athlete! Football, softball and girls’ soccer is in full swing. The schedules will be printed in the newsletter and in the newspaper. A pep rally was held Tuesday to honor these fall sports and the athletes who participate! The cheerleaders showed their spirit by performing cheers, a hip-hop dance, and fun games to entertain the students and faculty, too! Homecoming week will be Sept. 27-30. We began selling homecoming Tshirts this week. The cost is $10 and all proceeds will go to Athletic program. Order forms will be available at lunch each day. Parents and family members are welcome to purchase one too. More will come later about specific dress up days and club representatives.

Joy McKinnon’s class read “Fix It Duck.” They are working on the sight words I, am, little, and a. Please practice these words at home. Congratulations to Susan Willis’s class for winning the hallway behavior award. I have been seeing some quiet first-graders in the hallway. Keep up the good work! Mrs. Susan’s class is learning about the life cycle of a frog in their science center and they are actually observing tadpoles in their classroom. Second-graders won the cafeteria behavior award for using good manners while eating lunch.

Congratulations! Third-graders are busy counting money and making change. Please practice these skills at home. They are also writing the four types of sentences: declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory. Their reading story for the week is “If You Made a Million.” PSO membership drive will be Sept. 7-24. The cost is $2 a member.

911 Board releases $2.2 million for dispatcher training The Tennessee E m e r g e n c y Communications Board (TECB) has made $2.2 million in funding available to local E m e r g e n c y Communications Districts for dispatcher training. “We’ve set uniform standards because we want to do all we can to improve the effectiveness of 911,” said TECB Executive Director Lynn Questell. “We know many

districts exceed these standards and provide additional training and support to their dispatchers. We certainly want to provide the local 911 districts with the needed funds to for this training.” “We’re pleased we can provide these funds,” Questell said. “Not every state has minimum requirements. And among those that do, not every state provides funding for the training. Tennessee continues to be a national

leader in 911.” TECB requires that all dispatchers to have 40 hours of supervised, onthe-job training and 40 hours of public safety communications coursework within the first six months of employment. Additionally, dispatchers must participate in regular continuing education. The training standards in Tennessee are modeled after the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials

(APCO) standards. The dispatcher training funds are available on an annual basis. “Our Board has set solid standards for the training of 911 dispatchers,” said TECB Chair Randy Porter. “We want to be sure the districts have the funds they need to train those dispatchers. Uniform training of dispatchers results in improved response to emergencies.” The TECB was created

by the General Assembly in 1998 to assist ECDs’ boards of directors in management, operations and accountability, with the goal of establishing reliable emergency communications for all citizens of the state. It’s a successful formula; in 2005, Tennessee became the third state in the nation to become Phase II-ready, meaning a 911 operator can obtain a wireless caller’s number and location information.

In 2005, Tennessee received an award from the Congressional E911 Institute for having the nation’s best state system. The TECB is administratively attached to the Department of Commerce and Insurance, which works to protect consumers while ensuring fair competition for industries and professionals who do business in T e n n e s s e e . www.tn.gov/commerce/.

FEMA seminars to help communities learn model floodplain management In Tennessee, 353 communities - both counties and cities - participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which offers federally backed insurance to property owners and renters. To make flood insurance available to its residents and businesses, a community must adopt and enforce floodplain management ordinances and

flood insurance rate maps. The Floodplain Management/Insurance Group of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is conducting nine seminars throughout August that present an overview of the Tennessee model ordinances. The seminars will instruct floodplain administrators in the interpretation, administration and

enforcement of their adopted flood damage prevention ordinances. FEMA is committed to helping communities strengthen their floodplain management. “Floodplain management is an opportunity to reduce risk and improve communities,” said Federal Coordinating Officer Gracia B. Szczech of FEMA. “This is an important way that recov-

ery assistance continues.” Non-participation creates additional impact on residents and businesses when disaster strikes by limiting access to federal benefits. However, if a community joins the NFIP within six months of a disaster declaration, federal assistance applications may be reconsidered. In the fall, FEMA plans to conduct three regional,

four-day floodplain management certification courses for those who are interested.
