Schoolyard fight sends one student to the hospital A fight that broke out last week between two Chester County High School students sent one classmate to the hospital. According to the report on file, at approximately 3 p.m. last Tuesday afternoon as students waited to load buses, a fight broke out between two male students. The brawl, that was caught on a cell phone video and later broadcasted over YouTube, illustrated one male student approach another male student and attack him, repeatedly striking him with his fist. The blows appeared to be so forceful it knocked the other male student to the ground leaving him what appeared to be an unconscious state. The YouTube viral version of the fight has since been removed. The report stated three different students were interviewed after the incident occurred and they alleged that last week they all witnessed the student who was attacked holding a small pocket knife underneath the lunch room table with the blade open. One witness said he thought the student with the knife brought it to school to “scare him”. The witness said he told his friend, the attacker, about the situation and the attacker told the witness, he (victim) wouldn’t pull a knife on him again. Authorities searched the victim on the day of the attack and never found a knife, nor was a knife found in his locker. CCHS Principal Troy Kilzer informed the incident was treated as an “unprovoked attack” and the student was suspended immediately. Kilzer informed the disciplinary action in incidents like these are executed through a range of discipline. The student will appear before the discipline hearing authority this week for further punishment. “He will face a minimum of five days suspension and it could range to alternative school placement,” added Kilzer. The father of the victim said he was dismissed from the hospital and suffered only minor injuries and no broken bones. The attacker will be charged through the juvenile courts with simple assault. Due to their age, no names could be released or published.

SERVING CHESTER COUNTY SINCE 1865
History made in Hog Heaven

Friday night’s crowd at the 33rd Annual BBQ Festival drew in historic records numbers of festival patrons. Chester County’s lone festival, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, is their largest fundraiser and is a means of creating revenue for the county. There was no question Friday night’s events at Chester County’s annual BBQ Festival drew the largest crowds in its 33 year history. Elbow to elbow patrons packed the courthouse lawn in every nook and cranny, streamlining their lawn chairs in order to get a view of one of the favored event, the Youth Talent Show. “This year’s barbecue festival was the most successful one that we have had to date,” said festival coordinator Patricia Ledford. Ledford said success is gauged in terms of overall profits and the amount of meat sold, because there is no way to gauge a head count in terms of population. It was a good indication on opening night, Thursday, of the success due to a sell out of all meat at 6 p.m. “We’re aware of the fact that the BBQ festival does not need to run out of barbecue,” said Chamber President Trent Scott. “We see that as a serious obstacle in our ability to grow in the future.” For future plans Scott said the Chamber plans
think creatively and partner with other local barbecue pits to make sure enough meat is on-hand so the early sell out situation does not happen again. “We cooked the maximum amount of hogs that our pits will hold this year, plus we had to call in back-up orders to Siler’s Old Time BBQ,” explained Ledford. “The sell out was mainly due to beautiful weather and record crowds.” Mayor Bobby King stated although the vast crowds are good for the community, they have to be controlled for safety issues. “We’re growing so much (each year), we have got to figure out a way to deal with the big crowds,” King said. “But don’t get me wrong, we want them there, we just have to handle them.” A major problem King addressed were the packs of pre-teens running amuck around the festival grounds. “The parents were just dropping them off and leaving them there,” King said, “for us to baby sit.

Sweetlips Road was portrayed as Pusser’s home, and was a tourist attraction for many years thereafter. Former Freed-Hardeman University faculty member Sylvia Harris did not get a speaking role, but was thrilled to be chosen as an extra. “It was a wonderful experience, really a lot of fun,” declared Harris. However, she did not dream the effect it would have on everyone, or that the film would live on. “People from all over would call and tell me they had seen me in the movie. ‘There’s Mrs. Harris’ they would shout.” Harris and a friend signed up together, but they only took her. Turns out they wanted someone with Harris’s ‘salt and pepper’ hair. She was paid minimum wage, and her first week on the job took place around the courthouse as they filmed background scenes and car crashes. Later she appears prominently in the crowd during a scene in which Pusser’s wife is laid to rest at the Henderson City Cemetery. Harris was told the film would have an “R” rating for its violence, but she stated she was embarrassed watching the completed film with the vulgar language that was used. One particular day during the break in the filming, Harris had
County “opts out” of building codes Meeting in special called session last Thursday, Sept. 30, the Chester County Commission voted unanimously to opt out of the statewide building code standards. According to County Mayor Dwain Seaton, had the commission not taken this action, all new construction of one- and two-family dwellings, outside of the a municipality’s urban growth boundary, would be subject to inspection. The requirements are part of the Tennessee Clean Energy Future Act of 2009. The vote as 16-0 with two commissioners absent. It was not, however, without much discussion, including whether the county should set up its own building inspection program. But Commissioner Tim Crowe stated that he believed the inspections would never generate enough income in the way of fees to cover the cost of having such a department. Brent Beshires, building inspector for the city of Henderson, stated that the city’s inspection program generated approximately $50,000 in the last year, and that it rarely generates enough in fees to pay for itself. Seaton listed several area counties that had already obted out of the program, to which Commissioner Buddy Richardson suggested that a multi-county inspection service might be feasible in the future. Seaton stated that the county could opt back into the program at any time, but in order to keep their options open they had to pass the resolution before Oct. 1. the opportunity to talk to the actor playing the role as judge. “He was a really nice man, really interested in the history of this area,” Harris said. “But we were a dry county, and he was amazed at that.” She also got to meet Pusser himself, and “rubbed elbows” with some of the other actors. Harris recalls the day in which the funeral scenes were shot was so hot that some of the extras passed out. See PUSSER, Page 3-A

UK troops trek through Henderson The crowded streets along Main Street parted Saturday afternoon, and time stood still for a moment, to make way for a man running across the country to honor and aid wounded soldiers. As the hustle and bustle of the BBQ Festival quieted, the only sounds that could be heard were that of applause for the Marine as he waved to the patrons in true patriotic form. Todd and his team of Royal Marines were honored during the BBQ Festival Saturday. What started out as a mission to help a fellow comrade, has in turned led to thousands of dollars raised for wounded military men and women. Colour Sergeant Damian
Todd was inspired by the movie, Forrest Gump, and thought it would be a life changing experience for himself as well as others to trek across the nation raising awareness and funds for the servicemen and women who are injured in combat, including one of his close friends who is now a triple amputee after he was injured in Afghanistan. He rallied his troops, a handful of military comrades, and started the “Gumpathon.” “Whilst the media covers those who sadly lose their lives in the line of duty less has been said about those who are graphically wounded,” illustrated their website. “The problems facing

the courthouse lawn, everything’s going to be on the table.” Perhaps the large numbers were due in part to additional vendors, kid’s activities, various competitions and lively entertainment. After the Adult Talent Show Saturday night, three talented bands The Kimberlie Helton Band, After Hours and Key Largo closed out the evening. This year was a first for Chris Siler, owner of Siler’s Old Time Barbecue, as he relieved Richard Leath of his culinary duties. Siler was deemed master chef for the three-day event and dedicated 72 hours to whole-hog barbecue. Ledford concluded the annual festival that draws thousands to the community would not be possible with out the continuous support of their volunteers, our city and county support. “We are so thankful for everyone that helped out,” she added. For full coverage of the festival see Page 1-B, 2-B, and 3-B.
BBQ “They (kids) weren’t spending any money eating or playing games, they were just hanging.” Last year the Chamber opted to close off Main Street through the downtown area in order to expand the festival and maintain crowd control. The streets were once again closed this year, but the courtyard square still appeared to be busting at the seams. King added he wants to meet with all the players involved with the festival to go over “the good and bad” and discuss possible improvements that can be made to the annual event. “I want to meet sometime towards the end of this month, with everyone involved, the police dept., public works, chamber, county officials, to see what needs to be improved on for next year,” he said, “while it’s fresh on everyone’s minds. We may need to move things around on
Walking for veterans’ mental health Ron Zaleski is walking across the country with a very specific message to share. Our veterans are returning from war without receiving necessary mental health care, he says, and as a consequence, 18 veterans commit suicide each day. Zaleski proposes to do more than simply walk and spread the word; he plans to spread awareness, a desire and willingness to make a difference, and hope. His goal is to collect one million signatures on a petition for mandatory Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) counseling for all military troops prior to discharge. “How can we save the rainforests and whales when we can’t even save our own children?” Zaleski exclaimed. He further stressed “It is an outrage for me to have to do this,” walking barefoot to call attention to the great mental health needs of servicemen and women. Beginning his trek in Boston, Zaleski plans to make his way to California by March/April then drive back through the states he wasn’t able to get to, collecting signatures as he goes. For more information about Zaleski and his barefoot walk across America, and to sign the petition electronically, log on to www.thelongwalkhome.org
The US Marines in Jackson applauded Cpl Lloyd Fenner RM as he ran through the streets of Henderson Saturday during the BBQ Festival. Fenner is one of several Royal Marines that has dedicated a year of their life to the Gumpathon. The British soldiers are running across the nation to raise money for injured military men and women.
those who return with severe injury are great and the simple things that we take for granted such as walking, running, going out with your friends are changed forever.” All money raised from the Gumpathon will go towards helping these people through the work of three charities: Help for Heroes (H4H), the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund and the US Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. All three raise funds to support wounded and ill members of the Armed Forces, and their families, throughout their recovery period.

Walking Tall starred Joe Don Baker as Pusser with Elizabeth Hartman as his wife. Bo Svenson portrayed Pusser in the two sequels, also shot in Chester County, as was a television pilot film. A remake of Walking Tall, starring former professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was released in 2004 but was filmed in British Columbia.

It’s a fair crop this year and the price of cotton is up. Fifteen bales of cotton go into one big bale weighing 20,000 pounds.

Deanburg on Feb. 8, 1931, at the Seven Gables apartment house in Marion, Ind., to Winton Dean and Mildred Wilson. Six years after his father had left farming to become a dental technician, James and his family moved to Santa Monica, Calif. The family spent several years there, and by all accounts young Jimmy was very close to his mother. According to Michael DeAngelis, she was “the only person capable of understanding him.” He was enrolled at Brentwood Public School in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles until his mother died of cancer when Dean was 9 years old. Unable to care for his son, Winton Dean sent James to live with Winton’s sister, Ortense and her husband Marcus Winslow, on a farm in Fairmount, Ind., where he was raised in a Quaker background. Dean sought the counsel and friendship of Methodist Pastor Rev. James DeWeerd. DeWeerd seemed to have had a formative influence upon Dean, especially upon his future interests in bullfighting, car racing and the theater. According to Billy J. Harbin, “Dean had an intimate relationship with his pastor... which began in his senior year of high school and endured for many years.” In high school, Dean’s overall performance was mediocre. However, he was a popular school athlete, having successfully played on the baseball and basketball teams and studied drama and competed in forensics through the Indiana High School Forensic Association. After graduating from Fairmount High School on

Here is interesting tidbits. Don Christopher Columbus landed in America on Oct. 12, 1492 (518 years ago). On Oct. 7, l986, First Edition British newspaper “Independent” begins publishing 24 years ago; and
Oct. 7, l957, “American Bandstand” premieres, and Dick Clark never ages – wished I had been the hostess! I visited James Lott and Dorothy Plunk Norville in Transitional Care. Both were working hard to gain improved health to head home. I don’t think the physical therapist can encourage them enough to break the record of what Charles Linster did on Oct. 7, l965. He did 6,006 consecutive push-ups! Only push-up I know to try is filled with orange sherbet, but perhaps
James and Dorothy will give their best push, so they can come home. Our prayers continue for Sally Gorman at healthcare, a past dear caregiver for Lela Coady and Robbie Rhodes. Sharon Stovall and I visit her regularly, so she can hear comforting words. Also, I carried a Pepsi to Sally Hathcoate at the healthcare Friday, but she had been moved to McNairy County. No problem Ruby Wright, LaTasha Phillips, and I will carry Pepsi to McNairy County to visit

We feel helpless in times of sadness, but we are never hopeless. God pours His love into our hearts and all those precious memories help sustain us with His glory. God bless.
“The first half of the ball game looked as though the Eagles were going to run up a more impressive score than they did. On the first play of the game, after having received the kickoff, David Waller threw to Mike Hunt. The play covered 54 yards and an Eagle score. It took only 26 seconds to accomplish this. Allen Stewart then ran the extra points and the Eagles were ahead 8-0.”

Victory” “After being defeated by Parsons 44-22, then Lexington 34-0, followed by Savannah 20-14, the Chester County Junior High Eagles defeated Waverly by a score of 2018 here Monday night. This was the first loss this season for Waverly. “The Junior Eagles were down 6-0 when Dennis Bishop caught a Bobby Skellion pass and raced 58 yards for a touchdown. Ricky Clayton ran for 2 and the Eagles were ahead 8-6.”
May 16, 1949, Dean moved back to California with his beagle, Max, to live with his father and stepmother. He enrolled in Santa Monica College (SMC) and majored in prelaw. Dean transferred to UCLA and changed his major to drama, which resulted in estrangement from his father. He pledged the Sigma Nu fraternity but was never initiated. While at UCLA, he beat out 350 actors to land the role of Malcolm in Macbeth. At that time, he also began acting with James Whitmore’s acting workshop.
In January 1951, he dropped out of UCLA to pursue a full-time career as an actor. I thought it was interesting. Hope you did.

Do’s and Don’ts of social networking when looking for work Perhaps nothing in the last decade has more revolutionized how people interact than the advent of social networking media. Be it through Facebook or Twitter or their respective counterparts, nowadays more and more people are using the Internet to interact with friends, family and even strangers. As convenient as such means of communication can be, they can also be risky, particularly for job seekers. In a June 2009 survey, online employment resource CareerBuilder found that 45 percent of employers reported using social media for screening job applicants. Those results came a year after a similar CareerBuilder survey of 31,000 employers found that one-third of applicants considered for jobs were rejected because of information discovered via social media. While social networking can be valuable when seeking employment, it’s best for users to carefully consider just what they’re sharing with the world, and what they should probably be keeping to themselves. Some of the Do’s In many ways, social networking sites can help job seekers as they look for work. • Do be active. Social networking sites like Facebook aren’t just for individuals. In fact, member groups and even university alumni groups have their own Facebook pages. These groups provide valuable means for job seekers to be active, be it with professional groups in their field or among their fellow alumni, which can make for a valuable networking opportunity. What’s more, prospective employers who visit an applicant’s page are likely to be encouraged by their involvement in local professional groups. • Do post pertinent information. Job seekers can show their interest in a desired field in other ways as well. Post links to stories about relevant industry topics, just be careful to avoid comments that appear too flippant or critical of the industry or any industry professionals. Posting links indicates to prospective employers that an applicant is up-to-date on current issues facing the industry. • Do be careful. While job seekers can use social networking sites as a means to display their knowledge of their desired industry, it’s important to be careful about how that knowledge is shared. When posting messages, post rational, carefully considered thoughts or opinions. Avoid remarks that might come off as overly critical, instead choosing remarks that provide concise insight and indicate an ability to provide opinion without criticism. Some of the Don’ts Ignoring the don’ts of social networking could greatly reduce an applicant’s ability to land a job. • Don’t swear like a sailor. Many people avoid swearing in public and it’s a good rule of thumb to consider all social networking sites, be it Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter, a public place. Regardless of where the foul language stems from, it’s best to avoid it entirely on social networking sites. Most people would not swear in a job
interview, and many of today’s job interviews begin with prospective employers researching an applicant online. • Don’t share inappropriate photos. Many a famous person has been caught in scandals surrounding inappropriate photos posted online. While it’s OK to horse around with friends, it’s best to avoid documenting such times online for all the world, including potential employers, to see. • Don’t get things off your chest with regards to a former employer. Disparaging remarks about a former employer make for a very visible red flag with prospective employers. Such remarks only reflect poorly on the applicant and almost certainly guarantee an individual’s resume will find the scrap heap and not the hiring manager’s desk. • Don’t get too personal. Sharing too much personal information online is another way job seekers can reduce their chances of finding work. While some information, like family photos, is acceptable, getting overly personal could scare away prospective employers.

Dear Editor, I want to take this opportunity to urge each of you to exercise your right to vote in the Nov. 2 election. If you are not registered, please do so. This is the only voice we have and our future and our children’s future will be in the hands of the people we elect. But, don’t just go into that booth and vote Democrat, Republican or Independent, we have all done that before. Learn all that you can about the person that you are voting for, not just what they say, they will say the things that you want to hear. Research who is funding and supporting their campaign. If you know where the money is coming from, you will know who owns them if they are elected. There are hundreds of organizations out there that sound good and decent, but they are pushing a radical and progressive agenda. They will spend lots of money and advertising to get their candidate elected. These people and organizations will stop at nothing and want this country to be like a third world country. They want to repress the citizens and the small businesses that create jobs. They want to take from the haves and give to the have-nots and people to be dependent on the government. That would make us no better than serfs that serve a feudal lord. The government thinks they know better than we do, by taking over banks, auto companies and health care and spending our money like it was theirs. We must get our heads out of the sand, going about our daily life, thinking this will never happen to us. One day we will wake up and wonder what happened to America. Our children and grandchildren will be the ones to suffer for this. If you think this will not happen in America, read some world history, it has happened in the past and it can happen again. Our forefathers fought and died for the freedoms that we all enjoy today, the freedom that allows me to have this letter published in a newspaper. We must make sure that our country does not lose this, therefore we must vote into office good, hard-working, God-fearing leaders to head this nation. GOD BLESS AMERICA. Janice Armour Henderson

A fire at home can occur in just about any room of the house and even outdoors. While one can’t account for natural disasters or other unforeseen problems, there are many steps homeowners can take to prevent fires. • Check the cords on all appliances and electronics. Replace any frayed or damaged cords or wires. • Do not overload outlets or rely heavily on multiplug power strips. • Keep cords out of the reach of children and pets. • When cooking in the kitchen, always be present while food is on the stove or in the oven. Flare-ups
can occur at a moment’s notice. • Don’t store items over the stove. They can fall and ignite. • Turn pot handles so that children can’t reach them and pull them over, risking burns. • Be sure appliance vents have room to “breathe.” • Have the chimney checked and cleaned regularly. • Use a metal or glass fireplace screen to block embers. • Limit the use of portable space heaters around the home. • Use extreme caution with cigarettes and ashtrays. Empty them fre-
quently when signs of heat and burning are gone. • Use light bulbs that are at the recommended wattage for a fixture. • Don’t place any electrical items by water in the bathroom. • Store flammable materials in a locked metal container in the basement or garage. • Service the furnace and hot water heater on a regular basis. • Do not store items too close to the furnace. • Be sure every level of the home is equipped with working smoke detectors. • Keep one or two fire extinguishers charged and at the ready.
Film festival plans short film competition 7-Day shootout returns to Secret City Film Festival for second year The Secret City Film Festival, now preparing to embark on its seventh year in Oak Ridge, is again holding its “7-Day Shoot Out” filmmaking competition. This fast-paced filmmaking competition, as well as the rest of the events scheduled for this four-day event to be held at the Oak Ridge Playhouse from Oct. 1417, is designed to both encourage, educate, and inspire independent film makers and to provide a number of the developing talents in the industry an opportunity to showcase their work. “Considering the extremely short time frame in which all of the phases of production must take place, it is amazing to see some of the finished films,” said Keith McDaniel, founder and director of the Secret City Film Festival. “The screenings of all the entries to the competition on the last day of the festival is a big thrill. Keeping the same format as last year, each participating team is provided a randomly selected film genre, a line of dialogue that must be used in the film, a prop, which must also be used, and a sevenday window of time to produce a short film, with a total run-time of between four and seven minutes. “In our inaugural year we had 15 teams competing from as far away as
Morristown, Tenn., with teams consisting of anywhere from 3 to 10 members,” said McDaniel. “This year we are anticipating an increase to around 25 to 30 entries. Early sign ups for the competition, which can be done on our website, are showing very promising numbers, and we are all very excited by what the screenings on the last day of the event will have to offer.” Winners of the contest will be selected by a panel of judges, grading the entries on creativity, technical merit, and adherence to the guidelines of the assignment. In addition to the awards presented by the panel of judges, the audience will also be given the opportunity to vote and determine the Audience Favorite award winner. The competition is open to any individual or group of up to 10 people wishing to participate. There are no experience requirements for this contest. A kick-off event will be held at 6 p.m. on Oct. 7 at the Midtown Community Center on Robertsville Road in Oak Ridge, where participants can submit last minute registration information and receive their required prop and all other information for their assignment. At least one member of each team must attend this meeting. The entry
fee for each team is $60, which includes two Secret City Film Festival Full Festival Passes. Registering online by Oct. 1, and payment of the entry fee provides a slight advantage to participants, as the team’s randomly selected genre for their film assignment will be provided to them 48 hours before the 7-Day Shootout Kick-off event. For more information, or to register online, visit the festival’s website at http://www.secretcityfilmfest.com/seven_day.php, or contact Rachel Bodenbender, the 7-Day Shootout Coordinator, at 865-617-8221. The Secret City Film Festival is an annual event held each fall in Oak Ridge. It features film screenings, filmmaking workshops, and special events. The festival was founded in 2004 and is directed by East Tennessee filmmaker Keith McDaniel through his production company, Secret City Films.

Why? I remember my brother when we were young saying he did not believe in God because he could not understand why a loving God could allow the existence of suffering upon children. I have heard hurting people ask this question seeking the answer to their loss and comfort for their pain. I also recall a person of old asking this question, If the Lord be with us, Why then is all this befallen us? This question has been asked down through the centuries. I will not presume to be able to satisfy everyone who will or has asked the same, why? I do believe there are two reasons why things happen in life and these causes affect all mankind. The first is natural disasters. These include storms, diseases, and birth defects. The second is a result of wrong choices. We all have been affected by both. When a storm comes through our area sometimes we have to suffer the consequence of what it has caused. It may be as little as a brief power outage, or something more significant. We do not have power over natural phe-
nomena such as tornados or thunder and lightning. The other cause is wrong choices. Sometimes I have eaten too many hot spices and my body will alert me with wicked heartburn. That was my wrong choice. Sometimes we may suffer as a result of the wrong choices of others. An example of this would be in a burglary, or other violent crime, wherein we are the victim. I know this cannot answer all the whys and will not begin to take away the sorrow of our losses. Perhaps it may ease some of our assumed guilt or give consolation if we realize everything in life happens for a reason, even if some things we may never know why? This is Sunrise.

The win against the Hawks not only gave CCHS the No. 1 seed in the district, but also made them winners of the regular season in their district. The District Tournament will be held next week during fall break in Jackson at Southside’s gymnasium.
Eagles falter at Lexington, another running-back out The first series of downs is becoming a horror show for the Chester County football team. One month ago, star senior running back J.D. Burton of CCHS broke a leg on the third play of the game at Wayne County. And as damaging to the team’s chances losing Burton was, the Eagles still had another speedster in the
backfield in junior Cameron Phelps. However, Friday at Lexington, Phelps suffered a broken arm on the second play of the game, a 317 setback for CCHS. Each of the two players is now out for the year. “Offensively, when we lost J.D., we wondered who would step up,” said Chester County head

coach Jeff Cupples. Phelps did step up, helping power the Eagles to a victory two weeks ago over rival McNairy Central. But with Burton and Phelps on the sidelines, Chester County’s offense struggled mightily against the Tigers of Lexington. After Phelps went out of the game, CCHS punted to Lexington and the Tigers needed only two minutes to take a 6-0 lead. Miraculously, the Eagles found some kind of offense, marching on the next series to Lexington’s 11-yard line where they faced a fourth down and one. Quarterback Austin Cavaness dove across the 10-yard line and appeared to have enough for the first down. However, when they uncovered the pile, the mark was short, and the CCHS offense was never again a threat to win the game. The home team Tigers added two more scores before intermission, and then added a fourth TD less than a minute into the second half. Before Chester County was able to put points on the board, Lexington led 31-0. Chester County’s lone score came with 3:49 to play on a nifty 24-yard run by Cavaness. With a depleted backfield, CCHS gained a measly 75 yards total offense to 343 by Lexington. There were no turnovers in the game, but 13 penalties, seven against the Tigers for 67 yards. “Our quarterback played well. After Cameron went down we put the game on his shoulders,” said Cupples. Cavaness completed three of seven passes, but without an effective running game to be concerned about, Lexington sacked the CCHS signal caller four times. Chester County fell to 2-4, 2-1 in the district and in third place behind Lexington and Liberty, each 3-0. In order to return to the playoffs, the Eagles now face several must-win games. “They still have fire in their eyes,” an encouraged Cupples stated about his team. “They still want to compete.” At 7 p.m. Friday of this week, CCHS returns home to face winless Jackson-Central Merry. It will mark the first time ever for the Cougars to face Chester County in a varsity football game at Eagle Stadium.

Collins’ golden goal gives Lady Lions victory over Bethel The Freed-Hardeman Lady Lions soccer team picked up an important win Sept. 28, downing Bethel University in overtime, 3-2. The win is the first conference victory for the Lady Lions since 2008 and marks the program’s first win over Bethel. Tied 2-2 going into extra time, it only took Freed-Hardeman five minutes to get the golden goal when sophomore Briley Collins took a pass from Whitney Newby, dribbled past a defender and finished with a well-placed shot past Bethel keeper
Jessica Coates into the upper right corner for the game-winner. It finished a big day for Collins, who also assisted on FHU’s other two scores. However, the match didn’t start off on a high note for the Lady Lions as Bethel’s Tori Barraco opened the scoring in the fifth minute, taking a through ball from KellyJade Whelan behind the defense and beating FHU keeper Tiffany Harris oneon-one. That would be the only score in the first half, despite FreedHardeman’s holding an 8-
Bethel hands Lions second conference loss The Bethel University Wildcats showed why they are one of the top men’s soccer programs in the NAIA, handing the FreedHardeman Lions a 5-0 defeat on Sept. 28. Dawyne Smith played a role in all five of the Wildcats’ goals, recording a hat trick and assisting on the other two scored by Mohammed Dumbuya. The Lions played without defensive captain Archibold Marowa, who
sat out due to receiving a red card in FHU’s previous match. Bethel (5-3-1, 2-0), who came in just outside the NAIA Top 25 in today’s poll, outshot FHU 24-4 in the match. Freed-Hardeman drops to 7-3 on the season and 02 in conference play. FHU next plays Oct. 15 against Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville.
Collins named TranSouth Offensive Player of the Week Collins scored two goals and added two assists in pair of FHU wins Freed-Hardeman’s Briley Collins has been named the TranSouth Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for the week ending Oct. 3, 2010. Collins, a sophomore midfielder from Goodlettsville, scored two goals and assisted on two more during a 2-0 week for the Lady Lions. The sophomore played a role in all three goals - scoring one and assisting on two others - in a 3-2 victory over Bethel University. She also scored a goal in a 6-0 shutout of Midway College. She is the fourth Lady Lion to receive player of the week honors this season. Helena Yegros and Shelby Murray have each previously won the offensive award while Tiffany Harris has been honored as defensive player of the week. Freed-Hardeman (8-3-1) is one win away from tying the school record for wins in a season.
Martin upends Lady Lions for first conference loss The Freed-Hardeman Lady Lions suffered their first conference volleyball loss, falling to Martin Methodist College in five sets on Sept. 28. The RedHawks bounced back from a 2-1 deficit to narrowly take the fourth and fifth sets, 25-23 and 16-14. Sandra Montoya led the Freed-Hardeman attack with 14 kills. Sydney Rice had 12 and Fernanda Ferreira added 11. The loss dropped FHU to 5-5 overall and 4-1 in conference play.
Junior Eaglettes complete soccer season The Chester County Junior High Eaglettes’ soccer season concluded Thursday with a loss in the district playoffs to Paris Inman Middle School. CCJHS entered the game as a No. 3 seed team after finishing the regular season with a 3-0 victory over Haywood in which Talia Hinson scored a hat-trick. The Eaglettes final record was 8-4-1 and their ranking was No. 6 out of 17 teams. The team celebrated their great season at Arnold’s Steakhouse by recognizing the leadership of its eighth graders and encouraging the seventh graders to continue improving and to build on this winning foundation next year.
3 edge in shots and controlling the ball for much of the half. Freed-Hardeman (7-31, 1-1) finally got on the board in the 53rd minute off a Collins corner kick that was deflected by a Lady Wildcat to Nikki Ceeney near the back post. The senior defender
collected the ball and put it beyond the reach of Coates toward left post to tie the match at 1-1. Bethel, however, struck right back and retook the lead three minutes later, this time with Whelan getting behind the FHU defense on another through ball to slip her
shot by Harris. But the Lady Lions wasted little time in getting the equalizer, evening the match in the 59th minute thanks to another cross from Collins from the right corner that found Britny Johnson at the far post. The freshman, who joined the team two weeks
ago, chested the ball down and put it past Coates to the right post. From there, both teams exchanged a few chances but could not convert until Collins’ goal in the 95th minute. FHU next plays Oct. 15 against Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville.

Hay plays another winning tune Coach Tom Hay, director of bands at Chester County High School, and his teammates captured the State Super Seniors Tennis Tournament recently in Knoxville. To compete in this event, you must have won your district tournament. The top six teams from across the state competed in a round robin format. Hay’s team was undefeated against the other teams which came from Fairfield Glade, Loudon, Murfreesboro, Chattanooga, and Knoxville. They will now compete in the southeast sectional tournament held in Hilton Head, S.C. In addition to his current tennis activities, Hay’s career playing accomplishments include playing No. 1 singles and doubles for the University of Tennessee at Martin, a No. 1 ranking in singles and doubles in the state of Tennessee, as well as representing Tennessee in the Senior Cup. He has won numerous local, state, and regional tournaments. Hay is an accomplished teaching professional tennis coach, earning the Tennessee state Educational Merit award (tennis professional of the year), and the Southeast tennis educational award. He has conducted clinics for Prince Manufacturing Co. in conjunction with Davis Cup Captain Tom Gullickson, and was the director of tennis for the West Tennessee Junior Tennessee Development Program.

By Rosemary McKnight East Chester is happy to have Principal Kim Scott back at work following her recent surgery. She enjoyed the many cards made for her by students. Report cards will be sent home Thursday, Oct. 7. This is the first year Chester County Schools have used the nine-week reporting system. P a r e n t - Te a c h e r Conferences will be held from 5-8 p.m. Thursday and 8-11 a.m. Friday. These conferences give teachers a chance to talk with parents about students’ strengths and weaknesses and the progress they have made during the first quarter of the school year. Students will attend a full day of classes on Thursday, but school will be dismissed for them on Friday. Fall Break is the week of Oct. 11–15. Rumor has it that “Flat Stanley” will be going with several third-grade students on trips during the break. It will be interesting to see pictures and learn about the places he goes. PTO will meet on Oct. 19. They have requested gallon-sized cans of whole
By Emily Brown Fall is in the air at West Chester! Several classes have gone on fall field trips and many have been busy making fall crafts or other preparations for our upcoming Fall Festival. This year’s festival will be on Saturday, Oct. 23. Meal ticket sales have begun. This year’s dinner will feature a pork chop plate for $8 or a hot dog plate for $4. If you’ve ever tried Dwain Seaton’s pork chops, you know they are the best. Contact a West Chester student for tickets. Make sure you return your tickets and/or money no later than Oct. 18. Royalty representatives have been working hard to raise money for our school. All royalty money will need to be turned in by 10 a.m. on Oct. 19. Start making plans to bake for our famous cakewalk. Prizes will be given to the student who brings in the most cakes, most creative and largest. This year we are adding a Toy Walk for the kids! Students are asked to bring in new or gently used toys for the “toy walk.” A note went home last week about the
EEdduuccaattiioonn kernel corn be donated in October for the Fall Festival dinner. Following PTO, there will be a Parent Involvement Program for each grade level. This program will be about math skills. Sympathy is extended to first-grade teacher Leslie Hunt on the death of her father, Ralph Dodson. Mr. Dodson had been a regular visitor at East Chester through the years. We also congratulate Mrs. Hunt on the recent birth of her grandson, Jackson Hunt Welch. Jackson was born to Brooke and Tyler Welch On Sept. 18. East Chester’s physical education teachers have been busy doing fitness testing on students. The P.E. department is about much more than playtime. Kindergarten teachers have also been busy testing skills and doing assessments. They look forward to discussing these assessments with parents during Parent Teacher Conference. First-grade classes have been learning about consonant blends. They enjoyed a round of Jeopardy to review their blends. Sherri Henson’s second-graders enjoyed learning about geography in a hands-on way. Ms. Sherri’s practicum student gave each student two Styrofoam bowls. They glued them together to form a model of Earth. Then they labeled the North Pole, South Pole,
and equator and colored their planet. Music has been drifting from the third-grade hall. These students are learning about life science. They have enjoyed singing along with a CD called “Nature Nuts.” The songs have helped teach standards about food chains, environments, animal groups and other skills. “Praise the Plants” has been a favorite song to help teach the life cycle of a plant. Third-grade students have been learning about different habitats. These week students brought in dioramas. Each student created a model of an environment that they learned about. Deserts, oceans, arctic lands, wetlands and forests have come to life in these rooms. Dee Arnold’s class had some special visitors to help her students learn about science. Dr. Paul Fader, Dr. Rachel Stevens and Dwina Willis (Laura Beth Welch’s grandmother) from the FHU Science Department brought three microscopes to class. Students were able to look at leaf veins and plant cells though the microscope. They also looked at the cross section of a tree trunk and discovered there are many things you can learn by looking at the cross section of a tree. Dr. Fader talked about the palm tree from his home state of Florida and explained that this tree has no rings. He also showed students a branch
toy walk and about our Silent Auction baskets. Game Night Basket, Movie Mania, Crayola, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are just a few of our themed baskets that we will have in this years’ Silent Auction. Since fall is in the air, this means that the kids will begin wearing jackets to school. Please make sure your child’s name is written in his/her coat. Every year we have many coats in the lost and found that go unclaimed. If there is a name in the jacket, it makes it easier on teachers and bus drivers to return it to its owner. Thanks to those who attended our PTO meeting Tuesday night. Coach Todd Lewis, our P.E. teacher, was our guest speaker. Final preparations were made for the Fall Festival. If you were unable to come to the meeting and would like to volunteer to help with our Fall Festival, contact our PTO president, Phyllis Crawford or the school office. Kindergarten students have been busy learning all about fall. They even made their own homemade applesauce after learning all about the different parts of the apple. They enjoyed tasting a variety of apples. The students also brought in various types of “fall items” such as leaves, acorns, cotton and seeds.
They are comparing, contrasting and graphing the items. First-grade students were able to visit Falcon Ridge Farm in Toone last week. They enjoyed the corn maze with its interesting spider facts, the pumpkin patch, the petting zoo, and learning facts about walking horses. First-graders have also been busy learning about water habitats and nouns. Second-graders have been learning about water habits and working on multiplication. Secondgrade teachers would like to encourage parents to continue counting money and reading with their child. As your child is reading his/her reading story or library book, ask questions along the way to make sure your child comprehends what the story is all about. This will help your child out tremendously with fluency and reading comprehension! Heather Melton and her student teacher, Kayla Taylor, celebrated with their third-grade class on
and pointed out how a scar is left when a leaf falls off. Patricia Johnson visited Rosemary McKnight’s third-grade class last week. She recently moved to Henderson. Mrs. Johnson is the wife of Brigadier General Paul Johnson who is currently stationed in Afghanistan. Students in this class are corresponding with General Johnson during this school year. Mrs. Johnson told students about their family and the experiences her husband has had during his career in the Air Force. She brought pictures of General Johnson, the family, and the A-10 plane that he flies. She also brought a flight suit, his dress uniform, a coin that he designed when he was Base Commander in Arizona, and a silver bullet from the A-10. Students were impressed with the many medals on his dress uniform. Mrs. Johnson said that her husband wanted her to tell students about changes that are taking place in Afghanistan, especially for girls and women. Dr. Belinda Anderson’s gifted students have been reading the Wizard of Oz. They are getting ready to put Dorothy on trial for the murder of the Wicked Witch. Each week they are focusing on higherlevel thinking skills to help them prepare for the upcoming trial. East Chester hopes everyone has an enjoyable Fall Break. Friday. They have earned 100 points for good behavior and enjoyed yummy ice cream sundaes! Thirdgraders are looking forward to a field trip to Falcon Ridge Farm on Oct. 29. Permission slips for the field trip have been sent home. Our very first nineweek report card goes home Thursday, Oct. 7, so watch for those! ParentTeacher Conferences are being held tonight (Thursday) from 5-8 p.m. and tomorrow (Friday) from 8-11 a.m. If you are unable to attend during these times, please get with your child’s teacher and schedule a date when you can attend or schedule a telephone conference. We want to make sure that we are able to contact each family and discuss how your child is doing. Remember that school will be dismissed on Friday for conferences and the following week for fall break. We hope our West Chester families and friends have a fun and safe break!

By Amber Murley A very big thank you goes to Unity Baptist Church for donating tissues, wipes and hand sanitizer to our classrooms. Three students at Jacks Creek Elementary School received Reading Renaissance certificates for Accelerated Reader certification levels. Receiving “Ready Reader Awards” for having five points are Jonathan Timmer, Meadow Elway and Alayna Schafer. Rising Reader Awards for having 10 points and
reading at least three books without help on 1.6 or above reading levels are Madison Melton, Darion Reeves, Anna Stout, Sylvette JohnsonLehr and Gabbie Frazier. Students were treated to an assembly with the Energized Guyz on Tuesday. They talked to students about energy conservation. Their motto is, “Open your eyes, be energy wise.” On Wednesday, Al McKinnon brought a fire truck for students to see and talked to them about fire safety. Report cards will be sent home Thursday, Oct. 7. Parent teacher conferences are set for 5-8 p.m. Oct. 7 and 8-11 a.m. Oct. 8. School is dismissed Friday, Oct. 8. Next week is fall break!

By Ally Rogers Report cards will go home Thursday, Oct. 7. Parent teacher conferences will be from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 7, and from 8-11 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 8. No set
appointments will be made, so feel free to come by at a time that is convenient to you during these hours. You can bring your child’s report card to have their schedule, grades and list of teachers. School will be dismissed on Friday for students. The football team played their last game last Thursday night and celebrated with a victory! The Eagles beat the Lions of Selmer 20-6! This win paid off for a season of hard work. During halftime, Catie Lowrance was crowned our CCJHS Homecoming Queen.
Congratulations to all of our club representatives. Our girls’ soccer season ended Thursday, as the Lady Eagles played in Paris. They were defeated in the district game, but ended the season with a record of 8-4-1. They worked extremely hard and played very well. They were in the top six of the district out of 17 teams! Way to go! The basketball season officially begins after Fall Break. The Eagles and Eaglettes will play in a Jamboree in Scotts Hill on Tuesday night. I encourage you all to come and
support our Junior High basketball teams! Pictures for Who’s Who will be taken Friday, Oct. 22. Students included will need to wear their uniforms. Yearbooks can still be purchased online (www.smart-pay.com), by phone (1-800-853-1337), or by mail. Please do not send any money to school for these. For any other information, contact Marilyn Davis. Fall Break will be next week, Oct. 11-15! Enjoy time away from school and be safe if you are traveling!
All Chester County Schools Monday, Oct. 11 – Friday Oct. 15 Fall Break Schools Dismissed
by Nancy Canada For the Brown Bag Book Club’s Oct. 13 meeting, we have chosen the timeless classic, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This year marks the 50th anniversary of its publication and, ironically, the book is on the National Library Association’s list as one of the most challenged books. Because this book is loved by so many, we are inviting anyone in the community who is interested to come and discuss this book. We meet from noon to 1 p.m. in the library conference room. Participants may bring their own lunch or something to sip on during the discussion. The group has chosen Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See as the selection in November. We hope to see other book lovers at our October meeting. The month of October has been designated as Fine Free Month. Bring in your library materials, no matter how overdue, and we will forgive the fine. If you have returned materials late, let us scan your card and remove the fines. Fine collections are a good source of revenue for the library, but in these tough economic times, we want to help our patrons as much as possible. In turn, we urge you to live up to the promise that you made when you filled out your library card application and return your materials in a timely fashion. The library belongs to all of us. Our final book sale of the year will be in November and will be sponsored by the Friends of the Library. We appreciate the donations that appear so often. The Friends of the Library provide snacks for the children during the summer reading program, pizza for our annual Middle School Book Club party, and last year, the Friends paid for a visit from Chasing4Life, storm chaser/educators who visited three county schools. The annual Storytime Halloween party will be at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 26. Children may dress in costume if they wish. We will read Halloween sto-
ries, color Halloween pictures, and have some spooky snacks. All ages are welcome. We have received notification from the Shiloh Regional Library that we are eligible for $4,000 in federal funds to be spent between now and April, and $1,382 in state funds per quarter to be spent on the purchase of library materials. We welcome suggestions from our patrons on what is needed on our shelves. The library board welcomes Ron Elder, who was recently appointed by the Chester County Commission. Ron is a park ranger at Chickasaw. His wife Jennifer is a former band director, now stay-athome mom to Benjamin, age 3, and Levi, who was born in June. Both boys are regular Storytime participants. They are active members of Trinity United Methodist Church. We are so lucky to have such a committed and caring group to administer library policies. Everyone who serves on the board has a library card. Our officers for the coming year are Janice Haithcoat, chairman; Harvette Croom, vice chairman; Jennifer Cronin, secretary; and Dr. Wanda Black, treasurer. Other members besides Ron are Chris Bailey; Randle Fenimore; Sandra Highers, County Commission representative; and Michael Phelps, City representative. The library has long provided headphones for computer users. Obviously, the headphones get a tremendous amount of use and wear out quickly. In the interest of economy and hygiene, we are going to ask computer users to bring their own headphones, but this is not a policy that is going to happen immediately. We plan to provide inexpensive ones for a $1 fee which will then become the property of the patron. The Canada family welcomes our first grandchild, Malone Ellis Wilburn, who was born on Sept. 24. His proud parents (and avid readers) are Jonathan and Julia Canada Wilburn of
Nashville. Jared Canada is the proud uncle. We hope that Malone can visit Storytime soon. He is certainly going to be read to a lot. New arrivals at the library are: DVDS: Remember Me; The Ghost Writer; Clash of the Titans; several DVDS on English usage and Math; Letters to Juliet; and Prince of Persia. AUDIO BOOKS: 1022 Evergreen Place; Safe Haven; In A Heartbeat; and The Lion. JUVENILE LITERATURE: Our Principal Promised to Kiss A Pig; Happy Thanksgiving, Curious George; The Van Alen Legacy: A Blue Bloods Novel; Keys to the Repository; The Magic Treehouse: A Ghost Tale At Christmastime; Into the Gauntlet; Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion; Olivia Goes to Venice; The Christy Miller Collections, Vols. 3 and 4; Heartless; Mockingjay; Life As We Know It; and the Pretty Little Liars series: Killer; Pretty Little Liars; Wanted; and Wicked ADULT NON-FICTION: Guinness World Records 2011; The Everything Father-to-Be Book; Setting the Records Straight: How to Craft Homeschool Transcripts and Course Descriptions for College Admissions and Scholarships; Supershop Lie A Coupon
