G’town all-in on shared services Board members say vote is ‘not a reversal’ By Jennifer Pignolet 901-529-2372

Germantown Municipal School Board members on May 14 voted unanimously to go all-in on shared services with other suburban school districts, amending the budget after the board voted 3-2 to approve it the previous week without all shared services. The vote was in a special called meeting to make decisions on health insurance and to amend the budget. Supt. Jason Manuel said after the board voted earlier to pick and choose which services to share, and to bring nutrition, purchasing and employee beneits fully inhouse, the other municipal superintendents told him they were not happy with Germantown’s decision. He said they told him there was a chance Germantown could be left out of all shared services. Manuel said after the meeting that he has known for weeks, and conveyed to board members individually, that the expectation was for Germantown to go all-in, both as a inancial savings and a show of cooperation. He said that after those conversations, he thought board members understood that Germantown needed to be fully on board, even if there was no speciic threat of consequences. “That’s why I brought the budget on Monday with all Tier-1 shared services,” Manuel said. “Tier 1” refers to the most inclusive group of shared services, and includes nutrition, transportation, planning, beneits, purchasing, information technology,

Movie mania sets in Shopping center ills free movie niche in Collierville

By Lela Garlington 901-529-2349

Right before the movie “Finding Nemo” started playing, the streetlights dimmed and the water fountains trickled to a dribble around Carriage Crossing’s Central Park. On a recent Friday, the Collierville outdoor shopping center hosted the irst in a series of family friendly Movie Mania nights. Unless it’s raining, the center is holding its second one this Friday when the Disney movie “Tangled” starts around dusk, or about 7:50 p.m. About 250 parents and kids sprawled on blankets and kicked back in orderly rows of lawn

chairs or sat along the fountain benches to watch “Finding Nemo.” They munched on free popcorn and sipped on free bottles of water. It was a time for children to chase bubbles and parents to chase runaway children. Movie regulars Jessica and Jared Shoup of Olive Branch came prepared. Their 4-year-old son, Gavin, was wearing his Sponge Bob Square Pants pajamas, and 2-year-old daughter, Syndey, was sporting her Dora the Explorer PJs. They view the outdoor movie night as a way for their children to release a little energy before they crash on the drive home. Not everyone was happy dur-

Firetrucks hoisted a lag over Poplar Avenue as dozens of police vehicles passed silently below, their blue lights lashing. Church bells before and after the ceremony played hymnals and patriotic tributes. About 250 students from the OLPH school stood alongside Poplar outside the church, their hands over their hearts, watching the procession pass. School principal Patricia Wyckof said she told

Restaurant owners urge veto of liquor bill Say add-on payment change could hurt By Richard Locker 615-255-4923

NASHVILLE — Restaurateurs in Memphis and across the state are urging Gov. Bill Haslam to veto a bill requiring them to pay wholesalers for liquor and wine shipments at the time of delivery, a change from state law giving

them 10 days to pay up. The Memphis Restaurant Association says the provision “could put small restaurants out of business and puts the health of the entire Tennessee hospitality industry in jeopardy.” Liquor wholesalers who sought the change say most liquor-by-the-drink retailers already pay at the time of delivery and have always had to pay for beer at the time of delivery. Tennessee Hospitality Association executive director Greg


Adkins said restaurateurs are disappointed in part because the change was made on an amendment to an unrelated bill in the closing days of the legislature without prior notice or discussion in committees. The underlying bill allows wineries to sell their products on site by the glass and to have up to two satellite locations for sales. The amendment was presented by Rep. Curry Todd, RCollierville, at the request of the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of

Tennessee on the House loor last month, Todd and Tom Hensley, president of the wholesalers association, said Wednesday. “The wholesalers are our partners, and usually partners talk with each other beforehand,” Adkins said. Hensley and Todd said there was nothing underhanded about the amendment, which they said was iled with the House clerk ive days before its approval. Senate Bill 2415 reached the governor’s oice May 13. He has

10 days to sign it or veto it or it becomes law automatically. The amendment generated controversy for the change in long-standing law, the way it passed and because it doesn’t change the law for retail liquor stores who still have 10 days to pay wholesalers after delivery. Liquor wholesalers and retailers are traditional allies on legislative issues, including their united seven-year battle against wine sales in food stores that inally won approval this year.

from 1 and the software systems for student administration and payroll. Board members Ken Hoover and Mark Dely, who originally voted along with Natalie Williams against sharing all services, said they felt like the May 14 vote was answering a diferent question, and therefore not a reversal of a decision. “It’s only in the last week that the other districts have established the criteria that if you’re going to be a part of it, you have to share them all,” Hoover said. During the meeting, Bartlett Municipal School Board president Jef Norris tweeted, “picking and choosing Tier 1 services was never an option. G’town board is the only board that seems to have that recollection.” Manuel stressed that the risk of the other districts excluding Germantown from all shared services was too great. “There isn’t an option,” Manuel said. “We would have trouble opening the doors if we don’t go all-in.” Board president Lisa Parker said after the meeting that in hindsight, board members should have met with other districts’ board members in addition to the superintendents to discuss shared services. “It was just a communication breakdown,” she said. Board member Natalie Williams said her original vote against doing all shared services was due to a concern that the agreements for these shared positions were not yet inalized, and she didn’t want to agree to a contract she hadn’t read. In balancing that risk against being able to open school on Aug. 4, Williams said she understood the need to be fully on board with shared services. “We’ve worked way too hard for the past three years,” Williams said. “My kids are walking in those doors August 4th.” The school board also elected to go with a selffunded health insurance plan and approved contracts for custodial and maintenance services.

Reynolds puts his hand over his heart as he gets a standing ovation from employees gathered to honor him during a family day May 18 at the Memphis Botanic Garden.

Almost retired CEO Steve Reynolds to step down, remain as consultant By Jody Callahan 901-529-6531

Maybe Steve Reynolds just doesn’t fully grasp this whole retirement thing. At the end of May, Reynolds, 68, is leaving his position as the president and chief executive of the Memphis-based Baptist Memorial Health Care Corp. Well, perhaps “leaving” isn’t quite the right word. “I retire May 31, which is a Saturday. So you’d think a Sunday would be a day of rest. ... But no, I’m (going to help) open a new hospital in Jonesboro, Ark.,” Reynolds said last Sunday at a retirement celebration in his honor at Memphis Botanic Garden. In addition to helping open that facility in Jonesboro, Reynolds still plans to serve on various hospital boards as well as hold the title of “senior consultant.” He’ll maintain an oice at Baptist. Reynolds even plans to work on

June 7, the day of his 45th wedding anniversary, but he swears he really is retiring. “If you look at my calendar,” he said, “you’ll see the diference between full retirement and half retirement.” At Sunday’s celebration, as many as 2,000 employees came to celebrate Reynolds’ tenure, which began in 1971 when the organization had just two hospitals. Since then, Baptist has grown into a $2 billion nonproit company that includes 14 hospitals in West Tennessee, North Mississippi and East Arkansas as well as nearly 15,000 employees and 4,500 ailiated physicians. “I think it’s been successful because he’s helped us grow,” said Diana Baker, the nursing research coordinator who has spent 40 years at Baptist. “And he cares about people. He cares about what we do to take care of our patients.” Those employees also came to welcome Reynolds’ successor, Ja-

son Little. Little, 39, has spent the past 12 years working for Baptist, and was named to succeed Reynolds when he announced his plans for retirement last December. Little says he’s happy that Reynolds will still be around. “I’ll get to continue to lean on him,” said Little, a Nashville native who now lives in Collierville. “That’s the biggest challenge, just trying to ill those footsteps.” For now, though, despite those dates still marked on the calendar, Reynolds really does plan to retire. He expects to do a lot more ly ishing, one of his passions. He hopes to spend more time with his children and grandchildren, teaching them to ish. Later this year, Reynolds and wife Ann will be taking a photo safari trip to Africa. In other words, making up for lost time. “Through the years,” he said, “you miss a lot of football and basketball games, piano recitals and violin recitals.”



Parents and children spread out on the grass to watch “Finding Nemo” at Carriage Crossing. Free popcorn and free bottled water are ofered.

MOVIE from 1 ing movie night, however. The sight of the tall State Farm “Good Neigh Bear” waving and high-fiving children made one little girl burst into tears. Mall worker Jacqueline Robinson of Memphis brought her 9-year-old nephew. “I like that you can relax and let the children have fun,” she said. “You don’t have to worry about them.” Collierville mom Katie Landers wanted to enjoy a inal night out before the birth of her second son just days after the movie. She came with her husband,

Len Landers, and their son, Silas, 4. Katie Landers said the family will be back in a few weeks with Silas and his new baby brother, Sawyer. The movie night proved to be an attraction for other families with infants or toddlers. “We can’t take him to the movie theater so this is a nice alternative,” said Penny Dupre of Cordova. “We’re going to hang out as long as he can tolerate it.” Kendra East with Carriage Crossing said the center has sponsored movie or concert nights for the past ive years. “We are always looking for community events that will be fun and free for families,” she said.

Sisters raise $400,000 for brother By Jennifer Pignolet 901-529-2372

In May, The Weekly and Gould’s Day Spa and Salon teamed to sponsor a Mother’s Day art contest. To win the $125 gift card, readers e-mailed us their special Mother’s Day drawings created by their kids. Holly Howell and her 8-month-old daughter, Hannah, proudly show of the Gould’s gift card she won. The lucky mother of two won when her son, Nathan, 5, e-mailed us a photo of his mom.

Heather Kee and her son Caden of Arlington were among the four winners.

Jitana Bagomolny of Collierville holds up one of the four $125 Gould’s gift card. Her daughter, Alexa Bagomolny, 9, submitted the winning entry.

Pannay Guigley of Hernando won a $125 gift card to Gould’s. Recently The Weekly and Gould’s partnered and gave away four gift certiicates for Mother’s Day. Also pictured is Pannay’s husband, Kevin Guigley.

When Madison and Lindsey Dismuke make presentations to potential St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital donors, they start of all business. They rattle of statistics about the hospital, document its history and explain where the money goes. Then they tell the story of a patient named Ingram. Ingram is 5 years old, and doctors see no signs of cancer in his body a year and a half after he went from complaining about a headache to brain surgery in the span of a week. Then they hit the audience with their kicker. “He’s our little brother.” Whether the crowd is 20 or 1,500, that line always earns an audible “aww.” Wrapping up, Lindsey matter-of-factly reminds the business people that they accept both cash and checks on behalf of St. Jude. Their system seems to be working — the Germantown sisters have raised more than $400,000 in a year and a half. And the only thing more impressive than the money raised is their ages: Madison is 12 and Lindsey is 10. Madison, a Houston Middle School sixth-grader, was home sick the day her mother got a call from Ingram’s doctor. “I didn’t know anything was wrong,” Madison said. “And then she started crying.” Ingram — already dubbed “Ingram the Conqueror” due to his tendencies to knock over his own building block creations — went through surgery at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, then radiation and chemotherapy at St.

Jude. He went from being “an annoying pest who could punch,” according to his eldest sister, to a pale and skinny little boy with a diagnosis of anaplastic ependymoma, a rare brain cancer. When Ingram was diagnosed in April 2012, the girls set a lofty goal: raise $1 million. Craig thought that was a bit too optimistic, especially with their original plan of holding lemonade stands. An economist, Craig helped his daughters calculate the number of lemonade stands needed to reach the goal. Instead, he helped them develop the framework for a presentation, and later, a video to send

to out-of-town companies, such as Apple. The girls go from board room to board room in downtown Memphis presenting their cause to CEOs, dentist oices and church groups. Their parents help them set up appointments and have worked with them on the subtleties of their presentation. But once at the presentation, the girls are on their own.“I want them to have ownership of it,” Craig said. The community was quick to embrace their efforts. Dogwood Elementary, where Lindsey is in the fourth grade, has held several “Ingram Days,” and almost all of the students

own a Team Ingram Tshirt. Twenty-plus men in Craig’s oice shaved their heads in support. “Two of my friends, instead of getting presents for their birthday parties, they asked for donations for St. Jude,” Lindsey said. The city of Memphis honored the girls with the Ruby R. Wharton Outstanding Women Award for public service in February, and they have been top fundraisers for the hospital the last two years. That original $1 million goal looks more feasible, as the girls continue to spread their message. Their new campaign idea is auctioning some artwork Ingram wants to donate.

Larry Davis, Genene Crosby, Pamela Sue Moyers, all teachers at Ellendale Elementary will retire at the end of the school year. Combined, the trio have nearly 80 years of teaching experience.


Three veteran educators to retire By Kim Odom Special to The Weekly

Ellendale Elementary School facility, staf, students and families, gathered May 15 at the school to bid a fond farewell to three veteran educators with nearly 80 years of combined teaching experience. Retiring is a bittersweet moment for seasoned educators, Genene Crosby, a resource teacher for 35 years, Pamela Sue “Susie” Moyers, a speechlanguage pathologist for schools for 22 and Larry Davis, a retired Navy chief petty oicer with 20 years of service and 21 years invested in his second career as a teacher. Davis has taught third grade at Ellendale Elementary for 13 years. Moyers has been at the elementary school for 19 years. Crosby has been at Ellendale for 25 years. Crosby of Germantown recalls, “When I started teaching at Ellendale, Germantown Parkway was a one-lane road.” She has seen her share of changes in education and has served three principals during her time at the elementary school. Crosby says she knew she wanted to teach special education in high school when she volunteered during study hall to help with a special education class. Although teaching resource has been fulilling, Crosby expressed that she is looking forward to retirement. “I want to sleep for 40 days and 40 nights,” she said. She knows that’s not likely — at least not right away. She has a busy summer schedule that includes moving her daughter, Melissa Chando, and husband Mark, back to Memphis from Charlotte, N.C., then her attention will be on her son, Derek, who graduates in December from nursing school in Denver, Co. Derek also will be married in the spring to Aubrey Bailey. Crosby laughs, “Maybe later I’ll get to sleep.”

This summer, Moyers of Bartlett, is looking forward to traveling out of town to visit with her children and grandchildren. Beyond that Moyers said she’s not ready to hang up her education shoes entirely. She would like to do some part-time contract work with Bartlett City Schools and continue working with children. Davis, also a Bartlett resident, will enjoy a family trip to the Grand Canyon in October. Other than that, he says most of his time will be spent with his grandkids and working around the house doing honey-dos. Crosby, Moyers and Davis, have many rewarding moments through years of service in education. Davis says, “Watching children grow throughout the year” are moments he will miss. A career as a speechlanguage pathologist and helping children has been gratifying for Moyers. “Improving a student’s speech and/or language skills can be a slow process,” she said. “Watching as one of my students began to use his communication device as his voice has been my most rewarding moment.” Crosby says she has so many memorable moments, but, “It’s that ‘ahha’ moment when a student inally understands a concept after working on something over and over; when a student tests out of Resource and stays in the regular classroom full time — meaning I have helped the student reach his/her maximum potential,” that she will treasure the most. Although these veteran educators will each take a diferent course in their retirement, they have one thing in common — they will sincerely miss the many friendships they’ve formed in their years of service at Ellendale Elementary School. “Ellendale has always been filled with caring and dedicated teachers and staf who strive to make each student successful,” Moyers said

CHS Robotics team participates in world competition By Shawn Pachucki Special to The Weekly

The Collierville Robotics Team worked hard and represented the district well at the irst Robotics World Championship. Collierville was one of only three teams from Tennessee to qualify for the competition. The

Robotics World Championship was held in the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Mo. More than 12,000 students from 17 countries participated. During the world championship rounds, the Dragons’ robot “Festus” achieved personal best scores in every category and also had the highest “Defensive Power Rating” in their division. They ultimately inished with a record of 4-6 and ranked 76th overall. In late April, there was a Computer Programming Competition at the University of Memphis. While most of Collierville High’s

programmers were with the Robotics Team, William Yao decided to stay and participate in the contest. There were 10 schools represented by teams of students and Yao was a team of one. Each team was given six problems and three hours to solve them. Yao was the only “team” to complete all six correctly, winning irst place honors. Yao is incredibly talented and brave to have taken on such a challenge. Shawn Pachucki does publicity for Shelby County Schools.

Rotary Club honors Teachers of Year By John Barrios Special to The Weekly

Germantown High School has 14 sophomores and juniors who have been selected to attend Governor’s School this summer. Those who will attend are (front row, from left) Johnathan Russell, Annalise Stewart, Vidushi Sinha, Nadir Noordin, Lea Makloufi; (second row) Lauren Dandridge, Vanessa Nutt, Analia Mireles, Phoebe Taylor; (third row) Max Kight, Natalie Hernandez, Emilee Saxon, Niles Brooks and Olivia Gregory.

Memphis is rich in history. The fifth-grade students from Bailey Station Elementary recently took a “See Memphis Tour” of downtown. Students visited the Slave Haven Museum, the First Tennessee Bank mural, St. Jude, and other important historical sites in Memphis. The tour was designed to reinforce Tennessee social studies standards.

The Collierville Rotary Club honored eight teachers, one from each Collierville area school, as “Teacher of the Year.” Every month during the school year, school administration chooses a teacher of the month. These teachers are invited attend the Rotary Club meeting and to enjoy a luxurious lunch at Ridgeway Country Club. More importantly, they receive a inancial grant in honor of there achievement. In May, in celebration of “Teacher Appreciation Day,” the Rotary Club honors a “Teacher of the Year” from each school. This year’s “Teacher of the Year” honorees are Dana Siegel from Sycamore Elementary, Cindy Schepman from Bailey Station Elementary, Meghan Anderson from Schilling Farms Middle, Juliann Lacy from Collierville High, Felecia Crutcher from Crosswind Elemen-

tary, Shelly O’Daniel from Collierville Elementary, Beth McCallie from Tara Oaks Elementary and Laura McLemore from Collierville Middle. The Collierville Rotary Club has had a long relationship with Collierville schools and supporting many other important community programs. In 1939, the club started sending a Collierville student to Volunteer Boys’ State. This began a 75 year relationship with Collierville High School. In 1954 the student of the month program began. It was then called Junior Rotarians as only boys were selected and invited to club meetings. By 1970 student scholarships were now a major project of the club. About 20 years ago, the Collierville Rotary Club began honoring Teachers of the Month and Teachers of the Year from each Collierville School. John Barrios is a member of the Collierville Rotary Club.

FedEx packaging project engineer David Nelson peers into a walk-in temperature and humidity chamber used to measure the impact of difering climatological conditions on cardboard boxes.

A ribbon cutting was recently held for Mercedes-Benz of Collierville, 4651 S. Houston Levee Road. During the event, guests toured the facility.



FedEx Lab facility relocated to ensure package survival By Wayne Risher 901-529-2874

It was absolutely, positively a muggy August afternoon inside a walkin temperature chamber at FedEx’s new package laboratory in Collierville on May 14. “This is Memphis,” packaging engineer David Nelson said as he swung open the chamber door during a tour of a facility where FedEx customers send packages to be shaken, rattled and rolled, not to mention squeezed, dropped, chilled and spilled. With the control panel set on 104 degrees and 85 percent humidity, Nelson said, “This is real hot and humid. This is like August.” Two temperature chambers and a third device that simulates altitudes up to nearly 20 miles are new additions to the laboratory that was relocated in recent months to suburbia from the Memphis International Airport area. Cary Pappas, chief executive oicer of FedEx TechConnect, which operates the lab, said, “We can


simulate any part of the FedEx network anywhere in the world, from the desert to the rain forest to the Arctic.” It’s easy to see why FedEx would want to test packages and pallets of freight on vibrating tables that simulate the ride in the back of a delivery truck; or why there might be a need to pick up 500-pound pallets and drop them to see if the contents survive. But why would FedEx need to subject a package to 350-degree heat, or simulated altitude of 100,000 feet? Some of the testing equipment’s capabilities may seem a bit extreme by today’s standards, but who knows where packages will travel in the future. Maybe the innovators at FedEx can invent a new delivery model based on current commercial explorations of near space. The packaging lab, which began operations in 1987, provides free package testing and design services for customers of FedEx Express, FedEx Ground and FedEx Freight.

Nelson, 55, who obtained his bachelor’s degree in package engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology, said the laboratory employs a dozen people and works with another 20 or so ield engineers. “It was a vision of Mr. Smith (FedEx founder Frederick W. Smith) to have a package laboratory like this,” Nelson said. “It doesn’t do any good to get something there overnight if it’s damaged.” In addition to testing packages and designing some of FedEx’s shipping boxes, the laboratory crew is occasionally tapped for an extracurricular project. Nelson said the lab designed a shipping crate for the rescue capsule that carried trapped Chilean miners to safety in 2010. The Chilean Embassy needed the crate to transport the capsule for public display. Mayor Stan Joyner joined a crowd welcoming the laboratory to Collierville, where FedEx oicials said about 2,500 employees live and 3,000 work, in facilities including the FedEx World Technology Center.

The Collierville Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting for new member, Grill Gas Express. Grill Gas Express is the leading propane tank delivery service eliminating the hassle of propane reills in Memphis and the Mid-South. Cutting the ribbon is owner Jason Jordan. While cutting the ribbon, he is surrounded by Collierville Chamber Ambassadors, Bonnie Allman, ambassador chairwoman and board member; Fran Persechini, chamber president and CEO, Becky Hammond, chamber membership director; Michael Meindl, and Paradigm Business Images and chamber board member.

Horse riding star Melanie Smith Taylor to release new book Special to The Weekly

The Germantown Charity Horse Show’s Melanie Smith Taylor will be taking pre-orders for her new book, “Riding with Life: Lessons from the Horse,” at the 66th annual event, which runs June 3-7. The GCHS is the irst to ofer signed copies to the public. The book will be released in mid-July. A longtime Memphis resident, Melanie grew up in Germantown and competed in the Germantown Charity Horse Show throughout her childhood. The GCHS was her very irst show in the early 1950s, and she and sister, Sunde, won the blue ribbon in the costume class, now named after her mother — the Rachael Smith. In the 1970s, Melanie began a show jumping career that would bring her international recognition as both a competitor and a trainer. In 1978, she won the American Grand Prix Association’s Lady Rider of the Year and the AGA’s overall Rider of the Year. Her outstanding performance convinced the AGA that women could compete on an equal level with men, and the separate Lady Rider award was discontinued. Melanie became one of only two riders to ever win the Triple Crown of Show Jumping — the American Invitational, the International Jumping Derby and the American Gold Cup — and the only person to win all three on the same horse, her beloved Calypso. She also won the World Cup in 1982 and was elected to the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame that same year. She capped of her extensive riding career by winning a team gold medal at the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984. After retiring from active competition in 1987, she became a television

Melanie Smith Taylor, who used to ride in the Germantown Charity Horse Show, will release “Riding with Life: Lessons from the Horse” in July.

broadcaster for events, including the Olympics and the World Championships. In addition to designing jumper courses and teaching clinics around the country. Melanie and her late husband, Lee, raised and trained thoroughbreds for polo, hunter/jumpers and pleasure on their Wildwood Farm in Germantown. They spent every day together riding, working with and caring for more than 100 horses. Melanie’s latest accomplishment is a book that captures the spirit and wisdom of a great horsewoman. Blending her in-depth knowledge of groundwork and latwork with her vast experience in the hunter/jumper discipline, she explains how to achieve a harmonious partnership with your horse and realize his full potential. Against the backdrop of her life story, Melanie presents a wealth of detailed exercises, instructional photographs, and valuable advice, as well as details about the many horses that have helped shape her approach. This year, the $25,000 Grand Prix, sponsored by Conway Services, will offer an extra thrill to GCHS competitors and spectators. Melanie will provide expert commentary for the 2014 Grand Prix June 7.


High School Musical Theatre Award winners feted Tony-style at Orpheum By Jon W. Sparks Special to The Commercial Appeal

If there’s anything that Pat Halloran might possibly like more than a good Broadway play, or scouting a good Broadway play, it’s scouting young talent that will someday be part of a Broadway play. The Orpheum president and CEO couldn’t be happier with the announcement May 12 of the winners of this year’s regional High School Musical Theatre Awards. Categories include recognition for acting, dancing, music direction, costuming, set design, hair and makeup, chorus and box oice. Those involved with St. Benedict at Auburndale’s theater eforts were pleased as well with half a dozen awards for its production of “West Side Story,” including Outstanding Overall Production and trophies for the production’s chorus, small ensemble, dance execution, production number and supporting actor. The ifth annual presentation recognized work in mu-

sical productions by some 28 area high schools. It’s one of 30 programs ailiated with the National High School Music Theatre Awards. The Tony Awards-style production brought nominees together on the Orpheum stage and announcements of the winners. Bethany Beckham of Evangelical Christian School and Maclean Mayers of Germantown High School have a chance to go to New York City to compete for the Jimmy Award recognizing the country’s Best Performance by an Actor and Best Performance by an Actress. “These kids go to New York and are instructed by Broadway choreographers and voice teachers,” Halloran says. “They put on this production and it’s amazing.” Halloran says the program makes a big impression on youngsters in that age group. “We want people to look at the Broadway music industry as a far-reaching business,” Halloran says. “It’s an exposure to the whole industry at a micro level.”

Organizations, venues roll out best

Church to host percussion ensemble

By Jon W. Sparks Special to The Commercial Appeal

The 2014-2015 performing arts season is shaping up with theater companies, presenting venues and classical music organizations booking an intriguing variety of productions and performances. Some have already been reported and there are still a few organizations that haven’t announced, such as Ballet Memphis and Opera Memphis, who reveal their programming closer to summer. For most others, the schedules are set. It’s mostly a continuation of what audiences have come to expect, but there are notable achievements. The Memphis Symphony Orchestra is coming back from the brink, Hattiloo Theatre is marking a milestone with a new facility and Theatre Memphis gets the longevity award with its 95th season of community theater. The inancially troubled MSO recently announced that it would be mounting a new season, something by no means assured when it announced its iscal woes in January. There will be fewer concerts than in past years and the musicians have taken a 38 percent pay cut. The MSO released its lineup of ive Masterworks series concerts with an impressive lineup of guest artists. The rest of its schedule, including the pops series and chamber music series, will be announced later. Hattiloo, meanwhile, is making a signiicant leap into the future. It broke ground last June on its freestanding theater building in Overton Square and is gearing up for its inaugural production in July. Theatre Memphis will bring a mix of crowdpleasing classics, edgy new work and reliable musicals to its two stages in the coming season. Musicals on Theatre Memphis’ Lohrey stage

include “The Addams Family” (regional premiere), “The Boy from Oz” and Cole Porter’s enduring “Anything Goes.” The Next Stage will have the Americana favorite “Tintypes,” with a run in November and again in January 2015. And for the 37th year in a row, “A Christmas Carol” will be staged over the holidays. “The Boy from Oz” is a jukebox musical about the life and music of night club and recording star Peter Allen. It’s been around for a few years, irst in Australia where Allen was born, and a stint on Broadway in 2003-2004. “I’d seen the show nine years ago and wondered if the rights were available,” says Debbie Litch, Theatre Memphis’ executive producer. When she inquired four years ago, she found out that it was playing in Australia and New Zealand, but producers hadn’t given the rights for United States productions. Litch stayed in touch with the producers and when they decided to give it American distribution, she got the rights to do one of the irst national premieres. . “The Addams Family” has also been opened up to professional and community theaters nationwide and Litch wanted it as well. While four of the shows have been on the Theatre Memphis stage before, “no thing has been repeated here since 1986,” says Randall Hartzog, director of marketing and communications for Theatre Memphis. “Most of these shows are new to us and our patrons.”

MEMPHIS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA When the MSO announced on May 1 that it would be able to exist for another season, there was a sense of relief with no room for complacency. It

has to build a workable business model for longterm survival. Its 2014-2015 season will be reduced by 13 weeks and there will be 17 subscription series performances next season compared to 23 this season. The core musicians are taking a pay cut and it will hire fewer extra musicians, limiting the presentation of huge orchestral pieces. That being the case, MSO oicials wanted to make the season as strong as it could with programming. Music director MeiAnn Chen, MSO president Roland Valliere and the musicians sought to do something to distinguish the symphony, says Gayle Rose, board chairman of the MSO. Pieces in the ive Masterworks concerts include Danse Nègre from African Suite by black British composer Samuel ColeridgeTaylor, Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries,” the Ninth Symphonies of Dvoák and Beethoven and the Second Symphonies of Rachmaninof and Sibelius. Teenage violinist Adé Williams, a Sphinx Competition winner, appears in November, and pianist Orion Weiss plays a Mozart concerto in February 2015.

HATTILOO THEATRE The musical “Once on This Island,” inaugurates the new theater building on July 18 and is directed by Tony Horne, Ostrander Award-winning director of last year’s “The Color Purple” at Playhouse on the Square. “Once on This Island” is described as “a calypso-lavored retelling of the traditional ‘Little Mermaid’ tale.” Hattiloo founder Ekundayo Bandele led the efort to create the new facility, a $2.8 million project with a main-stage space seating 100 to 200 and a black box space for 75. It’s presence gives Overton Square

The Germantown Performing Arts Center has some top jazz with Wynton Marsalis and Arturo Sandoval each appearing in October. Classical dance comes with the Russian National Ballet doing “Sleeping Beauty” and modern movement hitting the stage with Diavolo. The Buckman Performing Arts Center at St. Mary’s School ofers Suzy Bogguss in September and Los Lonely Boys next March. It has plenty of dance on the bill as well, with Keigwin + Company, Te Amo, Argentina and African-based Lágbájá.

A percussion ensemble featuring six Memphis area high school students will present a free public concert at Germantown Presbyterian Church May 28, at 7 p.m. in the church activity center. An array of percussion instruments will be used The program will include works by Madison, Bach, Schinstine, Reich, Martini, Green, and Cirone. The talented student artists are from six area high schools. The musicians are Brandon Bedwell from Briarcrest, Ryan Brightwell from Arlington, Brandon Davis from Bartlett, John Ferguson from Fayette Academy, Douglas McClew from MUS and Sarah Teachey from Houston. They all study at the Academy of the Percussive Arts under the direction of APA teacher Stan Head. This unique concert is to honor the memory of Lafayette Ragsdale (19342011), a high school music teacher, musician, and artist who dedicated his life to art, and his passion, teaching young people. Germantown Presbyterian Church is located at 2363 S. Germantown Road. The concert is free and open to the public. Hannah Keathley is the director of communications for Germantown Presbyterian Church.

Some new moms swear by ingesting placenta pills By Abby Olena Chicago Tribune


Gertie Rogers, 84, places a newborn baby back into a bed in the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital. Rogers was one of about 20 people who attended an orientation for volunteers who cuddle babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Cuddle buddies Hospital volunteers soothe babies too sick, tiny to go home By Lindsey Tanner Associated Press

CHICAGO — A volunteer slips her arms into a gauzy yellow hospital gown and approaches a medical crib holding a tiny newborn hooked up to noisy machines. “OK,” she says, with a smile. “Baby time.” That means cuddle time in the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital. Here, as at several other hospitals around the country, strangers ofer a simple yet powerful service for newborns too tiny or sick to go home. When nurses are swamped with other patients and parents cannot make it to the hospital, grandmas, empty-nesters, college students and other volunteers step in. They hold the babies, swaddle them, sing and coo to them, rock them, and treat them as if they were their own. A plaintive cry signals time to get to work. “You can see them calm, you can see their heart rate drop, you can see their little brows relax,” said Kathleen Jones, 52, a cuddler at the Chicago hospital. “They’re ighting so hard, and they’re undergoing all this medical drama and trauma. My heart breaks for them a little bit.” Newborn intensive care units are noisy, stressful environments. There are babies born extremely prematurely, or with birth defects and other illnesses. Some are too sick to be held — but not too sick to touch. Cuddlers reach a inger inside their incubators and stroke tiny bare bellies. Scientiic evidence on beneits of cuddling programs is scarce, but the beneits of human touch are well-known. In one study, gentle caressing or placing a hand on preterm infants reduced levels of stress hormones. Other recent studies have suggested touch may beneit preemies’ heart rates

‘BABY HUGGERS’ IN MEMPHIS Both Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and the Regional Medical Center have had programs for two decades where volunteers hug and cuddle premature and sick babies. For 25 years, the “baby huggers” at Le Bonheur have held babies, fed them, changed diapers and ofered comfort, said Abby Cooley, child life specialist in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. The volunteers also play with older babies, providing them with developmental stimulation, she said. The “baby rockers” who volunteer in the NICU at the Regional Medical Center also help out as needed, said Angie Herron, manager of communications. That program has been in place for about 20 years, Herron said. Linda A. Moore

and sleep and perhaps even shorten their hospital stays. Studies also suggest that early negative experiences — including pain, stress and separation from other humans — may hamper brain development, while research in animals shows that positive interactions enhance brain growth, said Dr. Jerry Schwartz, medical director of medical neonatology at Torrance Memorial Medical Center near Los Angeles. The beneit “at the most supericial level” is obvious, he said. “A baby is crying, Mom’s not there, the nurse is busy with other sick babies, and it’s an unpleasant life experience to be crying and unattended to, and — voilà! — a cuddler comes over, and the baby stops crying.” Nancy Salcido has been a cuddler at Torrance for a year. Her two daughters are grown, and she considers her threehour cuddling shifts good practice for any potential grandchildren. “I just kind of hold them close to me ... and talk to them, sharing my day, or give them little pep talks,” Salcido said. “One of the nurses has nicknamed me the baby whisperer.” Parents typically must consent for their babies to be part of cuddling programs, and cuddlers must undergo

Research shows that cuddling helps calm the babies, many of whom are born prematurely or have serious health issues, and aids their early development.

background checks and training before starting the job. At the Golisano Children’s Hospital in Rochester, N.Y., one cuddler is a young man born there prematurely long ago. He “just wants to come and give back,” said Chris Tryon, a child life specialist at the hospital, part of the University of Rochester Medical Center. Comer’s cuddlers include 74-yearold Frank Dertz, a retired carpenter who heard about the program from his daughter, a Comer nurse. “It’s quite a blessing for me,” Dertz said. “I get more out of it than the babies, I think.” Jones says the same thing. A mother of three grown daughters and grandmother of two little girls, she joined Comer’s program in 2012, working a couple of afternoons a week or sometimes at night. “They say that I look so in love with them when I’m there, but I cannot not crack an ear-to-ear smile whenever I pick that little guy or girl up.” Her love seems obvious as she rocks a stranger’s newborn, the baby girl’s tiny hand gripping Jones’ inger. “Ooh, I want to take you home,” Jones coos. “You’re so brave. ... You’re going to be feisty, aren’t you?”


Lack of reproductive health information may create misbeliefs about conception By Sara Payne Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

What’s the best time to conceive? Many women might not know the answer. Only 50 percent of women discuss their reproductive health with medical providers, according to a recent study by the Yale School of Medicine. However, 75 percent of the 1,000 subjects identiied women’s health care providers as their top source of reproductive health-related information. Researchers believe this lack of dialogue has led to a number of misbeliefs about conception. “It never ceases to amaze me how many women don’t know when they’re fertile and don’t understand how health matters can afect their ability to conceive,” said

Terry Jakovac, a nurse practitioner at Adagio Health, a nonproit serving women and their families at sites throughout Western Pennsylvania. The large proportion of women who don’t know about fertility risk factors caught researcher Lisbet Lundsberg’s attention. Twenty-five percent of women in the survey are unaware of the efects of smoking, obesity, irregular periods and sexually transmitted infections on fertility. Knowledge gaps exist across all ages, researchers found. Younger women knew less about conception, fertility and ovulation while older women were more likely to count on myths. “We need to create strategies to improve education in new and existing venues,” Lundsberg said, adding that pregnancy web-

sites were another popular source of information. She is an associate research scientist in obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the Yale School of Medicine. Six out of 10 women surveyed thought intercourse should happen after ovulation, instead of before, to increase the chances of becoming pregnant. Dr. John Fisch, division director of Magee Womancare Associates, found this result interesting but less concerning than others. Women still conceive despite not understanding the ovulatory cycle because they are more receptive to intercourse at their most fertile time. What does worry him is the lack of knowledge women in the study had about folic acid. Half of the subjects did not know

it is recommended to prevent birth defects. The vitamin has been found to greatly reduce the chance of having a child with a neurotube defect such as spina biida, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. All women of childbearing age, regardless of their current plan to become pregnant, should be consuming 400 micrograms of folic acid each day. The recommended amount can be found in many multivitamins. A majority of women think having sex more than once per day will make them more likely to become pregnant, but this can be overkill. Sperm count decreases after intercourse, so sex more than every other day is actually counterproduc-

CHICAGO — Molly Halper never dreamed she’d consume her baby’s placenta, an organ that serves as a link between mother and fetus and is usually discarded after birth. “My husband and I used to make jokes” about people who did that, said Halper, who lives in Arlington Heights, Ill., with her family. “We’re not vegetarians or tree-hugging, granola-eating people. We’re suburban Republicans. We thought it was some hippie thing.” But after struggling twice with the baby blues and needing to supplement her breast milk supply with formula, Halper became intrigued by the idea that the hormones in a placenta could help. To reduce the ick factor, Halper paid someone to process the tissue into capsules when her third child was born. Medical experts say there is no scientiic evidence that consuming placenta beneits women, as no controlled studies have tested it versus a placebo. Nor have placenta pills been analyzed to see what substances they contain. “Until all the science is in, the cautions outweigh the expected beneits,” said Mark Kristal, a New York neuroscientist who has studied placentophagy — the scientiic name for placenta consumption — in laboratory animals. Yet the idea is popular enough that Halper’s doula, Deb Pocica, said she has encapsulated more than 250 placentas for about $250 apiece. Pocica said she also has trained 30 people to make placenta capsules, mostly in the Chicago area. Women who have consumed their baby’s placenta claim beneits including reduction of fatigue, a more balanced mood and increased breast milk production. Those reported gains also could be nothing more than the placebo efect, some doctors and researchers say. Encapsulation and digestion probably would destroy at least one class of hormones in the placenta, they note. Halper said her doctors didn’t object to her plan. Worst-case scenario, they said, the pills would have no efect. Her husband also was supportive. So after Halper’s daughter was born, Pocica encapsulated the placenta and Halper took the pills for about six weeks. Physically, she felt energetic and recovered quickly, Halper said. She was able to breast-feed her daughter without supplementing with formula, and she had no problems with the baby blues. At her six-week appointment, her obstetrician remarked on how well she seemed to be doing. In a survey of 189 women who had consumed their babies’ placentas — raw, cooked or in capsule form — 95 percent reported their experience was either positive or very positive, and 98 percent said they would repeat the experience. “Of course, we don’t know if those are placebo efects and their positive results are based on their expectations,” said Daniel Benyshek, corresponding author of the study and associate professor in the department of anthropology at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

HEALTH TIPS FOR WOMEN TRYING TO CONCEIVE ■ Take 400 to 800 micrograms of folic acid every day if you are planning or capable of pregnancy to lower your risk of some birth abnormalities of the brain and spine, including spina biida. All women need folic acid every day. Talk to your doctor about your folic acid needs. some doctors prescribe prenatal vitamins that contain higher amounts of folic acid. ■ stop smoking and drinking alcohol. ■ If you have a medical condition, be sure it is under control. some conditions that can afect pregnancy or be afected by it include asthma, diabetes, oral health, obesity and epilepsy. ■ Talk to your doctor about any over-the-counter and prescription medicines you are using. These include dietary or herbal supplements. Be sure your vaccinations are up to date. ■ Avoid contact with toxic substances or materials that could cause infection at work and at home. stay away from chemicals and cat or rodent feces. source: oice of Women’s Health ( “

tive, Fisch said. “We try not to have people obsess,” he said. “It’s usually just a matter of time.” The rate of infertility in the United States is 10.9 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but the study found 40 percent of women worry about their ability to conceive. Jakovac’s patients struggle with this fear when they irst start planning to have a baby. “It’s diicult for some women to understand that

we don’t see it as a problem until they’ve been trying for one year,” she said. “They think that as soon as they come of their birth control they can conceive.” If women are having trouble becoming pregnant, Jakovac reminds them that their partner’s well-being can be a factor. Healthy sperm is a necessary part of the process. Fisch and Jakovac said the medical community should be aware of the gaps in reproductive knowledge and be proactive.

children Ashley, 19, Joey, 18, Matthew, 14 Church/title: Director of Women’s Ministry at Germantown Baptist Church When did you know you wanted to into ministry work: Years ago, the Lord

gave me a vision and desire to serve, lead and equip women. More recently, I sat down for lunch with my dad. We talked about the fact that I was close to the “mid-point” of life. I shared with him how important it was for me to make my years count … however many years remain. With the encouragement of my parents and my husband, I decided to leave a great job and make myself available for ministry. God’s perfect timing brought the opportunity at GBC within days of that decision.

Turn to God, not away, in dealing with disappointment, diiculties By Billy Graham Tribune Content Agency

had a very difficult Q I’ve life the last year or so,

and if God knew how I really feel about him, he’d probably be very angry at me. But I can’t help how upset I feel at him, because surely God could have kept these bad things from happening to me, couldn’t he? — Mrs. S.G.

We don’t always know why God allows bad things to happen to us (or to anyone else, for that matter). Someday, in heaven, we’ll understand, but now we often don’t. That should make us turn to God even more, because in hard times we need him even more. The Bible speaks about “the mystery of iniquity,” and that’s what evil is: a mystery (see 2 Thessalonians 2:7, KJV). But listen: God knows what you’re going through — and he also knows all about your doubts and your anger and disappointment. We seldom know what’s going on in someone else’s mind, but God knows everything, including our thoughts and our emotions. The Bible says, “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13). Does this scare you? It shouldn’t, because despite your hurts, God understands why you feel the way you do — and he still loves you. This is why you can turn to him and tell him exactly how you feel — and he won’t reject


you. Instead, he wants to forgive you and cleanse you, and he will, as you put your life into Christ’s hands. Don’t go through life angry and without God. Instead, turn to Christ and discover the peace he

alone can give us, even in the midst of life’s worst storms. Send queries to “My Answer,” c/o Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, 1 Billy Graham Pkwy., Charlotte, N.C. 28201; or visit

Wheeler races to decathlon title By John Varlas 901-529-2350

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Josh Wheeler needed a special race in the 1,500-meter run Tuesday if he was going to have any chance of winning the AAA decathlon. Instead, he got the race of his life. The spindly senior from Collierville finished the grueling final event in 4 minutes, 31 seconds — 18 seconds better than his previous career-best. And it was enough to give him the championship, as he outscored Ben Johnson of McGavock, 6,571 to 6,517.

“I just knew I had to get the points,� he said. “It was the last event; I had to go all out.� Wheeler, who will compete at Tennessee next season, was the first-day leader and was still in control after the first two events Tuesday. But he struggled in the shot put — admittedly not the best event for a 145-pounder — and then watched as Johnson uncorked a 230.75 long jump to lead by 152 points heading into the final event. “That was a monster jump and it kind of killed my morale,� Wheeler said. “Even (Monday night) I didn’t sleep well. I knew

he (Johnson) was going to attack because he’s strong on the second day.� With his dad Sam offering plenty of encouragement, Wheeler surged to the front early and just kept extending his lead with each lap. He needed to beat Johnson by 15 seconds to ensure the title; he did it by 35. “He loves the jumps and the short sprints,� said Sam Wheeler. “But you just do what you have to do.� Sam said his son has always been a fine athlete, but Josh said he found his physical strength for this season from an unusual source: cheerleading.

“I’m a cheerleader and before the season I was doing a lot of lifting to get stronger (for the lifts),� he said. “I just got in the gym and got a lot stronger and that really helped me today.� There was no such suspense in the Division 2 competition as MUS senior Harrison Williams cruised to his second straight state championship. He finished with 7,314 points and was in such

Whitehaven boys, Houston girls win AAA sectionals By Pete Wickham Special to The Commercial Appeal


Houston players gear up to take the field against Dobyns-Bennett in their AAA Spring Fling game in Murfreesboro on Tuesday. Houston was making its first appearance in the postseason since being banned after a bench-clearing brawl against Briarcrest in 2011. Houston won the game, 5-4, in eight innings.


BACK AT IT After three-year absence, Houston Mustangs return to state tourney By Michael Cohen 901-529-2525

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — The ball launched of Jake Greer’s bat and lew into left ield for a single, giving teammate Logan Blackfan a chance to score from second base. He rounded third to set up a play at the plate in extra innings of a tie game in the Division 1 Class AAA state baseball tournament, a moment as big as any a high school ballplayer will face. Yet the intrigue of this particular play transcended its apparent simplicity within the context of baseball. This potential RBI single, with a runner careening home toward a waiting catcher, meant so much more with Houston High as a participant. There were lashbacks. Three years ago, in the spring of 2011, a player from Briarcrest collided with a Houston catcher in front of home plate. Their bodies entangled, tempers lared and a dugout-clearing brawl ensued. Punches were thrown and the resulting punishment handed down by the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association featured a hefty ine and two-year postseason ban for both schools. A YouTube clip of the ight has nearly 30,000 views. On Tuesday, the Houston base-

ball program took a major step toward erasing that particularly unsightly memory. For the irst time since the ban was issued, the team qualiied for state, and the Mustangs’ opening game came against powerhouse Kingsport DobynsBennett (33-4-1) on a beautiful day at Oakland High School. There are seven seniors on this year’s team, which is led by longtime head coach Lane McCarter, and to an extent their entire careers have been deined by the brawl. Though they were just freshmen when the incident occurred — “They had no idea what happened,” McCarter said — the subsequent punishment has lingered ever since, and after failing to reach the state tournament in 2013, this is their one and only shot on Tennessee’s biggest stage. All of that pretext, McCarter said, all of the “emotion of the moment,” as he described it, contributed to a listless start Tuesday. Houston trailed 3-0 by the end of the second inning, its own six batters having been retired in order. “We were never comfortable,” McCarter said. Slowly but surely starting pitcher Walter Rook settled, and his eventual replacement, Bryan Waldrop, did a ine job in relief. Dobyns Bennett would score just one more run in the remainder of the game.

Houston, meanwhile, chipped away at the deicit ofensively, scoring one run in the third and tacking on two more by way of an Alex Sala home run in the ifth. When the Mustangs (33-9) tied the game a second time in the top of the seventh, again on a timely hit by Sala, they had forced extra innings without ever holding a lead. Dobyns Bennett brought on Christian Bailey to pitch the top of the eighth. Bailey walked Blackfan, who quickly advanced to second on a ielder’s choice. The stage was set for Greer. He found his pitch and smashed a line drive to left ield, the ball hit hard enough to where the crowd realized a strong throw would have a chance to nail Blackfan at home. In it came. The ball was plucked from the air by the shortstop, Caleb Cook, who caught and spun toward the plate in one well-rehearsed motion. Yet as he pulled the ball from his glove his arm stopped, cocked but never unloading. As he peered home, his catcher ready and waiting, Blackfan was already bounding down the thirdbase line. He had beaten any potential throw, and Houston was about to take a 5-4 lead. The dugout exploded. “We came out with a little thing on our shoulder,” third baseman Jared Schmidt said. “We inally got that monkey of our back getting here.” Three outs later, the score went inal, and Houston was moving on. Flashbacks be gone.

If you’re going to make the trek to Murfreesboro for the state track championships during this week’s Spring Fling you want two things. First is to stay busy. Second is to be holding the best time/performance number in your events, or at least be in the conversation. If that’s the case, then Maia McCoy and the Whitehaven girls, Wesley White and the Houston boys, Cordova’s Molefi Maat and Collierville’s Josh Wheeler can check of last week’s weathergarbled Class AAA sectional as a success. McCoy, a junior seeking to sweep the state 100- and 200-meter dash titles, easily won those events last Friday, though she did not eclipse her state seasonbest times in either event. However, she was part of two of three Tiger relay winning teams that did set season standards, the 4x200 (1:40.95), and 4x400 (3:54.92), so she will keep herself busy, and in the spotlight. “I’ve been running all those events all year, so I should be ready,” said McCoy. “Last year we didn’t have enough girls for relay teams, but we got a lot of fast kids this year.” Tops on the list is freshman Kiara Rhodes, who won the sectional pentathlon meet this past week, was part of the 4x400 relay and qualiied for both hurdles races and the high jump. Junior Gatashyka Lyons added a win in the 400 (57.39) and the Tigers rolled over host Houston 123-95 for the girls team title. “Our young kids pushed our veterans in practice every day and in meets. A great combination,” said Tigers coach Yusef Sharif. Houston senior Wesley White, a Mississippi Statebound senior, entered the week with the state’s best times in the 110 and 300 hurdles. He swept both races and took a signiicant chip out of the 110 time, inishing in 14.33, which gave him the biggest cause for celebration. “The qualifying time for the New Balance Nation-

als next month is 14.34, so I got it by a hundredth,” said White, who didn’t start running hurdles until his sophomore year, and missed his junior season with a broken collarbone sufered while skiing. The Mustangs also got a double from senior Sam Kempka in the shot put (54-9) and discus (164-5), a win from senior Monte Doss in the pole vault (130), and qualiied in all four relays — including a win in the 4x400 (3:22.89) to capture the boys team title by a 117-91.5 margin over Bartlett. “We lost to White Station by a point and a half last year,” said Houston coach Aaron Martens. “Wesley is our wild card … and we told him no skiing whatsoever during spring break. But today I told the team they survived (the weather delays) and advanced. That’s key this week.” Maat, the state recordholder in the 100 (10.45), didn’t match that while sweeping the 100 (10.76) and 200. But the Illinois signee’s 200 time (21.76) bettered his state standard for the season. “Just wanted to get through,” said Maat, who has been battling a nagging right knee injury the past two weeks. The busiest guy at Spring Fling might be Wheeler. He clinched the sectional decathlon title with a personal-best 6,667, won the long jump (22-2½) and triple jump (45-9½) and inished second in the pole vault last Thursday. Then Friday, he qualiied for the 110 hurdles — and between there and graduation he formally accepted a late ofer to run for Tennessee. “I really wanted to get that kind of time in the hurdles, and I had enough personal bests this week to really feel good about the way things are going,” he said. Also taking double individual wins last Friday were Collierville’s Alexa Brainard in the 1,600 (5:10.94) and 3,200 (11:05.77), and Southwind junior Angelica Lightfoot in the long jump (18-0¼) and triple jump (37-4).

SNAPSHOTS Collierville goalkeeper senior Brady Thornbury deflects a corner during last Saturday’s 2-1 sectional win over Bartlett. The win advanced the Dragons to this week’s state tournament. Collierville won its state quarterfinal match 3-1 over Riverdale and played Farragut Wednesday.


Collierville’s Brooke Castillo safely slides into second base as Dyer County’s Kaylee Luckett drops the ball during last week’s sectional game. The Dragons edged the Choctaws 2-1 to advance to this week’s state tournament.

A two-day workshop in Southaven will provide guidance on topics including deer nutrition, habitats, harvest management and predator management.

SUMMERTIME MANAGEMENT Course delves into theory, practice of building deer herd By Bryan Brasher


MSU Deer Management Workshop: June 13-14 at Heartland Church, 385 Stateline Road, Southaven. Topics will include camera survey setup, deer nutrition, food plots, deer habitat, deer ecology, harvest management, predator management, camera survey picture analysis, deer harvest data analysis, aging deer and wild pig management. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. each day with the program lasting from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cost is $95 per daily workshop or $180 for both. Register online at deer2014. EDUCATIONAL 901-529-2343

While most of the world looks forward to the warmth and leisure of the summer months, June, July and August can be a fairly dismal stretch for a hard-core deer hunter. Every pontoon boat full of bronze-colored sun worshippers serves as reminder to hunters that it’s been several months since they were able to hunt, and the smell of coconut-scented sunscreen tauntingly says it’ll be several more months before they can hunt again. That’s why Dr. Bronson Strickland and his group of deer-management experts chose June 13-14 as the dates for their “Managing WhiteTailed Deer” workshop in Southaven. The two-day event, which is sponsored by the Mississippi State University College of Forest Resources, the MSU Deer Lab, the MSU Extension Service and the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, is designed to teach landowners and leaseholders the ins and outs of deer management — and its timing should be just right to help hunters crush midsummer hunting withdrawals. “When it comes to the really hard-core deer enthusiasts, by July and August they’re usually starting to foam at the mouth because they’ve been away from hunting so long,” Strickland said. “But we don’t like to wait that long to hold the workshops because kids are getting back into school by then and college football is getting started. By attending this workshop in mid-June, hunters can learn how to better manage the deer herds on their property and kind of scratch the itch a little bit at the same time.” Strickland and company began holding the workshops seven years ago — and since they were so popular and wellattended, they chose three years ago to expand the events from one day to two. Day 1 of the workshop in Southaven will feature a series of one-hour seminars on seven management concepts: Camera survey setup, deer nutrition, food plots, deer habitat, deer ecology, harvest management and predator management. “It’s really two different courses, and the first day is what we call ‘concepts,’ ” Strickland said. “We talk about deer physiology and what deer are biologically — and then once people have a better understand of how deer work, we move into management tactics after that.” Some of the topics covered on Day 1 will include history, biology, physiology and nutrition. Experts will discuss carrying capacity, harvest strate-

One of the skills that participants in the Managing White-Tailed Deer workshop will learn is how to judge the age of deer. The two-day session will be June 13-14 at Heartland Church, 385 Stateline Road in Southaven.

MANAGING WHITE-TAILED DEER WORKSHOP When/where: June 13-14 at Heartland Church, 385 Stateline Road, Southaven. Registration deadline is June 2. Details: The workshop will teach landowners and leaseholders how to better manage the deer on their property. Organizers: Mississippi State University Deer Lab, MSU College of Forest Resources, MSU Extension Service and the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. Registration: Cost is $95 per daily workshop or $180 for both days. Registration includes lunch, materials and T-shirt or cap. Register online at or call 662-325-3133.

gies, buck-harvest strategies and possible repercussions for those who choose the wrong strategy with their land. The predator management portion of Day 1 will examine the efects that predators like coyotes have on a deer population. Speakers will also touch on the rarely publicized predatory nature of wild hogs. The inal activity of the opening day will allow hunters to try their hand at aging deer on the hoof. They’ll not only be asked to age deer based on the look of their antlers, but also on the look of their bodily characteristics with antlers removed from the photo via photo shop. “The last talk of the day will be the lightest and least cerebral — aging deer on the hoof,” Strickland said. “It’s fun and interactive, and it gives hunters a chance to learn how much they really know about

aging deer. It helps them become better, more selective hunters in the woods. Each seminar is limited to one hour to keep things moving — and the presenters often go far beyond the normal seminar topics. “I attended the workshop last year,” said Dr. Allan Houston of Ames Plantation in Grand Junction, Tennessee. “In our class, a thoracic surgeon, also a longtime deer hunter, told us the facts about how a deer reacts to various kinds of rile and arrow hits. For anyone who wants to come in wondering about deer and leave knowing about deer, it is a good investment of time and it is fun.” Day 2 will be much more hands-on with management application seminars on four topics: Camera survey picture analysis, deer harvest data analysis, how to age deer and

wild hog management. “We’ll talk about things like harvest data analysis and recognizing trends on your land,” Strickland said. “We want to help hunters understand what’s happening with their deer herd — what’s going on with antler size and things like that.” One of the most popular parts of every workshop is the seminar that teaches hunters how to better use trail cameras to improve their hunting experience. “It seems like everybody loves cameras, and we do our best to help people understand how they can get the most out of camera use,” Strickland said. “Looking at pictures on a trail camera is like opening presents on Christmas morning, but you have to know what you’re looking at if you want to get the most out of the cameras.” Another feature of the twoday workshop is the chance to chat with other hunters who are all sufering through the same case of summer blues. “It’s a great chance for networking and sitting and talking with like-minded people,” Strickland said. “There’s always a lot of energy in the room for these workshops, and I honestly believe people come away from them better equipped to manage the deer on their land.”

GM extended military pricing to the more than 21 million U.S. veterans from all service branches: U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard. “GM has supported the U.S. military for 100 years. From providing purpose-built vehicles in conlict situations to today’s support for veterans and returning military personnel, we continue to be their strong allies,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president of U.S. Sales and Service. “This discount is just one part of our ongoing salute to those who serve our country.” First offered in 2008, the GM Military Discount Program features pricing below suggested retail for eligible vehicles The military discount can be combined with most current incentives. USAA members are eligible for an additional $750 discount. Eligible consumers must take delivery by June 30, 2014. GM Chief Diversity Oficer and retired Navy Capt. Ken Barrett said the military discount is a measure of appreciation for those who have served. “Our support also includes signiicant employment and training opportunities for our currently transitioning military and signiicant philanthropic support for organizations dedicated to serving those who have sacriiced so much,” Barrett said.

Catherine Gardner has lived in Arlington for 9 years. She is a loyal Sunrise customer and says the dealership feels more like family. She is always looking forward to the next purchase.

Dale Cameron

For an enjoyable summer, have your vehicle go through our Multi-Point Inspection process. We will check your tires, belts, hoses, check for luid leaks, check your battery and ensure that your vehicle is road ready. Some things to consider:

Dale has been married for 39 years and has 4 children, 8 grand children and 1 great grand child. He has been with Sunrise Chevy Buick GMC for 5 and a half years. Dale is ASE Certiied, GM Certiied and a Mark Of Excellence winner. He specializes in Drivability & Electrical work. Ask for Dale if you have one of these problems. He will take good care of your vehicle!

Shane Hardin Shane Hardin is an ASE certiied technician and a GM master certiied technician with over 25 years experience in GM transmission repair. Shane received recognition from the Secret Service for his repairs to President Bush’s vehicle in 2003. He specializes in transmission and drivability repairs and lives with his wife and two sons in Oakland, TN.

Zach Camfield

1. Tires are your vehicle’s contact to the road. Your tires have wear indicators in the tread that indicate how much tread is left. An easy way to tell is to use a Lincoln Penny. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head when you place the penny in the tread, you have less than 2mm of tread left & you need tires. We have Price Match Guarantee thru GM. Check with us before you buy tires. 2. Belts are what drive your water pump, air conditioner compressor, alternator and power steering pump, (unless you have the new electric steering). Have your belts checked for cracking or glazing. This can put you down without notice. 3.Coolant hoses are what carry your engine coolant from the radiator to the engine, heater and back. Swollen hoses are a danger of rupturing and causing you an overheating problem, possibly a damaged engine. Have them checked by our professionals to ensure a carefree and safe trip. Having your vehicle checked over before your summer vacation trip will give you peace of mind and a better vacation!



Zach Camield is our youngest technician. He is 20 years old and our newest employee to become certiied by General Motors. Zach has been working for Sunrise for 2 years and continuing his training for GM and ASE certiication. We at Sunrise on Covington Pike are committed to training our younger technicians to become leaders and future Master Technicians.
