joining NCS. “By joining forces and combining the operating assets and experience of Starr and NCS, we plan to provide even higher levels of service for all of our clients,” Capwell said. “Our highest priority will be to maintain continuity for both NCS and former Starr clients, to be responsive and to gradually enhance all of our services. The consolidation of operations into our facility in Selmer will result in additional jobs for the community.” The merger follows a recent expansion at NCS in Selmer with the company adding a warehouse and letter shop to their existing office space in 2011. The letter shop is about the size of a small-town post office ,handling and processing millions of pieces of mail each year. “We have hired a lot of people here and have given them permanent jobs, and we are happy to do that in Selmer,” Capwell said. Meyers said that the business handles both paid and controlled (or free) circulation for their magazines, and they handle titles across the United States and into Europe. Following the merger, Meyers said that he expected to see further growth of their business which has already nearly quadrupled their workforce during the last three years. This could mean adding to their current local workforce of 38 employees. Meyers said that with continued growth of the company, they would like to add 10-15 additional jobs in Selmer over the next year.

they changed the name. McGill said he fasted during his imprisonment and stayed in the infirmary with 19 other inmates with medical issues. At 66, he was the oldest inmate. A conflict arose when they wanted McGill to clean the bathroom on a Saturday, which is the Sabbath for Seventh Day Adventists. “I told them I could not clean the bathroom on the Sabbath, so one of the fellows who was a gangster came over to my bed and beat me—knocked me out of my bed— so that was an interesting encounter,” McGill said in his understated way. “I had the first-hand experience of turning the other cheek,” he deadpanned. McGill said two other gangsters threatened his life. “Both of them, at different times, slipped on the floor, hitting their head on the concrete and they had to go to the hospital and never came back, so that’s how God delivered me from being cut up with razor blades,” he said. “It’s a fearful experience,” McGill said about his stint in jail. McGill was told after he was released that the San Bernadino county jail was one of the roughest places he could have been incarcerated. “It’s close to L.A. A lot of gangs,” he explained. “I think his was the more interesting (experience),” Chartier said when asked about his incarceration. He was imprisoned for ten days in the same facility as McGill and also fasted. Chartier was not put in the infirmary. “I think they thought I was young and testy enough,” he said. Chartier was put in with the “bubblegum thiefs,” those who committed the most minor crimes. When he told the deputies that he was in jail because another church sued his church over its name, they said, “‘Are you serious?’” Chartier recounted. They also could not believe that he was a federal prisoner, “a federal” and was incarcerated for such a minor offense, because federal prisoners are usually jailed for the most serious crimes. “Even the police officers were kind of supportive,” Chartier said.

They told him, “‘Godspeed, you shouldn’t be here,’” Chartier remembered. “I didn’t get the gangsters and such that he did,” Chartier added. Chartier’s fellow prisoners also couldn’t believe what he was in for. “They were kind of like the thief on the cross, ‘We deserve to be here, but what did you do,’” Chartier said. Chartier was released on Aug. 9 and McGill, two days later. They returned to Guys a few days ago. “We’re actually working on raising up a little church congregation out there,” McGill explained. McGill said last Monday that they would be leaving Guys then. “We’re going to be traveling the country again, letting Seventh Day Adventist members know what’s going on,” McGill said. McGill said they have launched a petition campaign at libertypetition.com. “We’re handing out cards and flyers and such trying to get other Christians of other churches to take an interest in our campaign to sign the petition, asking the plaintiff church to just leave us alone and let us practice our religion,” McGill said. They have exhausted all of their appeals, McGill explained. “Now it’s just left to the court of public opinion. We’re hoping that if enough people sign the petition to give us freedom of religion in America that perhaps they would see that it’s better for their image to just let this thing go,” he said. “We are cross-grained with the law. Our religion can’t be changed and the law can’t be changed, so we are at a crossroad,” McGill explained. “That’s the drive behind this petition. We can’t change our religion and the judges can’t change the law. The only way to stop this is for the plaintiff church to stop trying to put us in jail,” Chartier added. “We would rather die than surrender our conscience, so if they’re going to put us in jail until we comply, we’re going to be in jail forever and that’s a very serious thing in America, I would think, if you can go to jail longer than a murderer because of the name of your church,” Chartier declared. “If you don’t support what’s going on here, if you think people should be free to practice their religion, even if they don’t agree with our religion perse, if they support our right to practice it, sign this (the petition),” Chartier said.

“I believe that God allows bad things to happen to good people, but I don’t think he gives us more than we can bear. I myself considered my time in jail to be a great blessing. God allowed it, and I accepted the blessing from what looked like a curse,” McGill said. “The blessing is I saw the hand of God working to save me, supernaturally, and the other inmates saw it, and they testified to me about it, ‘Pastor, you were supernaturally saved,’ and I said, ‘I know’ and to see that happen before your very eyes has a strengthening effect. Now, I’m more resolved than ever to continue in my faith. You see. So the very thing they were going to use to punish me and make me back off and give in to their injunction is the very thing that strengthened me to go forward. That’s the blessing. So I’m not looking forward to going back to jail again. Nobody in their right mind would, but if God allows it, I am going to look forward to more blessings and miracles. I’m 66 years old and in good health, so I’ve got maybe 30 or 40 more years remaining. That would be a long time to spend in jail, but I would hope that the Governor of Tennessee or somebody might eventually say, ‘Enough is enough,’” McGill continued. McGill’s wife, Barbara is in Uganda in her capacity as Director of Humanitarian Services there. “I would like to see my wife at least one time before I die or before the Lord comes,” McGill said. Mrs. McGill is not coming back, Mr. McGill said. “The only way I would go there is if this thing were to become settled amicably,” McGill. He explained that it would be legal for him to go now. “Luke and I could both go, but we would see it as being a traitor to our believers that are left behind. If the leaders run out on the laity, that’s not a very good thing,” McGill explained. If the national Seventh Day Adventist Church decided to drop this matter, McGill said he would probably go to Uganda and work with his wife, and Luke would take over as pastor. He and his wife lived there four years and built a church there. “We have natural health clinics where we heal the sick for free,” McGill said. “Sign the petition,” Chartier said in conclusion.

Commission approves closure of county landfill By Christen Coulon Editor

The McNairy County Commission met in a regularly scheduled meeting last Monday night. The meeting opened with the commission approving the minutes from the July, August and September meetings. Following a committee report by the Solid Waste Committee, the commission voted unanimously to close the county landfill to the public when all of the permitted land is used up. However, Mayor Ronnie Brooks said that county residents would still be permitted to bring waste to the waste station by the highway department. The Building Committee presented talking points from the joint meeting held with the school board and asked the commission to vote on their recommendation to not review the Petra Ministries lease on the old nursing home. The recommendation was made due to the committee’s position that the building was no longer habitable due to its deteriorating condition, and

suggested that the site would be a suitable location to open a recycling facility. The commission voted unanimously to deny an extension on the lease and now waits for the approval of a grant to move forward on the recycling facility. The commission also heard from the Personnel/ Law Enforcement Committee and approved its suggestion for a uniform leave policy for all county employees. Previously, all county employees, except those with the sheriff’s department, who had least three years of employment were eligible for 15 days of leave; sheriff’s employees had to wait 15 years to accrue that amount of standard leave. In new businesses the commission approved committee appointments for the 2012-13 year and approved a resolution to secure a capital outlay note for repayment of the Latta Building. Currently the county owes just under $203,000 on the building, however, with a recent interest rate reduction that amount may be adjusted downward. Upon the receipt of the capital outlay note from the state comptrollers office the

The most hotly contested municipal races are in Bethel Springs. There are three seats on the Board of Alderman to be chosen there. Incumbents Bob Graham and Bobby Gray face challengers Gary L. Bizzell, Jr., Benny Jennings, B. J. Jackson Patterson and Sherry D. Smith for two seats on the board. Another incumbent, Lew Perrigo, faces Gary Lynn Bizzell, Sr. and former board member Shirley Williams for one seat. As reported earlier in the Independent Appeal, Republican Byron Maxedon and Democrat Kevin Lipford are vying for Circuit Court Clerk to fill the unexpired term created when Ronnie Brooks was elected County Mayor. Incumbent Republican St. Sen. Dolores Gresham is facing Democratic nominee Meryl Rice.

Several of the local races are uncontested. Adamsville Mayor David Leckner is running unopposed as is Guys Mayor Keith Rinehart. Wayne Henry, II and Chris Howard are running unopposed for seats on the Guys Board of Aldermen. Ramer Mayor George Armstrong and incumbent C. Kendall Summers are running for two of the three seats on the city commission. There is no one running for the third seat. Republican St. Rep. Barrett Rich is running unopposed to represent McNairy and other counties in Nashville. Our county was moved from St. Rep. Vance Dennis’ district to Rich’s during the redistricting process last year.

In a final piece of new business the county was asked to pay an additional $31,000 for the completion of the new 911 building. “They underbid the building bottom line...They were presented numbers by the city fire chief, and they were wrong.” said McNairy County Sheriff Guy Buck. Under a plan presented by the 911 board the commission was asked to purchase the land with the additional funds and then lease it back to 911 for 99 years at a rate of $1 per year. Wilburn Gene Ashe expressed concern over the length of the lease with several other members following suit. Following a short discussion on the subject, the commission voted to send the issue back to the building committee to review. The commission is expected to review this issue again next month.

Crash at Adamsville stoplight damages two vehicles By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Two people were injured in an automobile accident at the red light in Adamsville last Wednesday. Darby Rebekah Lambert, 19, of Adamsville and a minor, also, from Adamsville were both transported by Emergency Medical Services ambulance to the Hardin Medical Center. A spokesperson for HMC said last Friday that they both had been released. According to the electronic traffic crash report provided by Ptl. Officer Daniel Vandiver of the Adamsville Police Department, he was dispatched to the red light in Adamsville on a motor vehicle accident. On arrival, he noticed two vehicles blocking westbound traffic. A silver 2005 Nissan Altima, driven by Lambert, was facing northbound, and a white Chevrolet Cavalier, driven by Angel Nicole Murphy, 20, of Adamsville, was facing eastbound. Lambert said she was unsure of what happened. Murphy said she was turning left onto East Main Street from Highway 22 North while she had the green arrow. That’s when she said the Altima came across the intersection, colliding with her vehicle. Murphy was not injured, but did want her child, who was in the backseat, to be checked out by Emergency Medical Services. Vandiver said that Lambert seemed to be shaken and confused. Murphy said her child was restrained, but after impact, was thrown out of the carseat. Vandiver said he checked the straps and buckle of the carseat and all seemed operable. He did see an indention in the strap, where it seemed to have been locked in a forceful manner. Two witnesses told Vandiver that the Altima was exceeding the posted speed limit. Vandiver also had two reports that westbound traffic had a green light when the wreck occurred.

A two-vehicle accident at the stoplight in Adamsville caused major damage to both vehicles. The crash left both drivers shaken up and a minor child from one of the vehicles was transported via ambulance for treatment. Vandiver said it was possible that Lambert was experiencing an anxiety attack at the time of the crash and that may have been why it occurred. Lambert was cited for running a red light. All citations are pending further investigation.

Vandiver stated in his report that it was unknown at the time it was filed if either driver proceeded past their red stop light or if either driver attempted to continue through the intersection before their yellow light turned red.

For whom the bell tolls: Milledgeville honors fallen heroes By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Three firefighters who died in the line of duty were honored at the Milledgeville United Methodist Church last Sunday. In addition to the Milledgeville fire department, fire departments from Decatur County, Hardin County and Henderson County and members of the church gathered to honor the fallen heroes. “We want to recognize our firefighters that are out there every day,” said Milledgeville Fire Chief Leland Alexander. “Very seldom do firefighters get recognized for what they do, especially those that give that ultimate sacrifice by giving their life in the line of duty. It’s something that’s deep down in our hearts as firefighters, as brothers and sisters, we understand when this happens how horrific it is and it’s something that, I guess you might say, we never get over it. I was talking to a couple of firefighters earlier that as recently as six months ago that are here today that lost their chief and it’s been only eight years since I experienced a loss of a brother firefighter and it seems like days or even months since this has happened. I don’t know if it’s something that you ever get over but we pray for each other every day that we will struggle through it and we will get over it if we look to the Lord for that comfort that we need during these times,” said Henderson County Fire Chief Lynn Murphy.

Henderson County FD suffered the loss of Capt. Roy Austin in 2004 while training. This was the first in the line of duty death in its 25-year history. “Those of us who were there at the time of his death continue to try to block out the details of the tragedy with memories of all the good times we had with Capt. Austin. Capt. Austin was a dedicated firefighter, an excellent leader and community servant, a good husband and most importantly he was a Christian. Although losing Roy was difficult for family friends and fellow firefighters, we know in our hearts that he moved on to a better place, leaving behind what he loved doing so much and that was serving his community as a firefighter,” Murphy said. Austin’s wife of 50 years, Ann, was present and was recognized. “Ann, you will always be in our prayers and know that anything that any of us, as firefighters, can ever do for you, as you have been told many times, we’re always there for you,” Murphy said. Murphy also recognized the Henderson County firefighters present at the ceremony. They were District Chief Bobby Floyd, 1st Lt. Pamela Floyd and Firefighters Joseph Hudgens, Shelia Middleton and Michael Hudgens. Hardin County Fire Chief Melvin Martin recognized his own firefighters as well as those from the Decatur County Fire Department.

“They asked me from Decatur County. I haven’t been through a death in my fire department and I hope we never do. I’m sure it’s very emotional,” Martin said. Martin honored Decatur County Fire Chief Kenny Fox, who died in the line of duty about six months ago. He also introduced the Decatur County firefighters who were present: Jeremy Inman, Shana Inman, J. T. Cox, Ryan Harris, Brian Carroll, Courtney Carroll, Zach Lindsay, Ashley Lindsay and Brenda Conaway. “They’ve had a really tough time to carry on but I think Chief Fox would be very proud of them that they’ve carried on with his station,” Martin said. Martin also recognized the Hardin County firefighters who were present: Lonnie Carter, Chris Hammond, Drew Russell, Billy Sweat, Ricky Guardino, Dustin Scott, Marilyn White and Deborah Holcutt. “Thank y’all. I really appreciate what you do and keep up the good work,” Martin said. Former Milledgeville Fire Chief Jimmy Tuberville was the final fallen firefighter to be honored. Ann Tuberville, his wife, and his son, Justin were also recognized. “We try to remember all of the good times we had with Jimmy and he loved his fire department. He was given the Jimmy Dickey Hometown Hero award this year in McNairy County. He was honored with that about a month ago. We were really

proud of that. Jimmy worked hard, Margie (Alexander) said yesterday—we were over there cleaning up the fire truck— and she said, ‘You know, if Jimmy was here, he would have already had this truck cleaned up’ and he would have. He loved this fire station and he was in and out of it all the time,” Milledgeville Fire Chief Leland Alexander said. Alexander recognized the Milledgeville firefighters present: Lt., Chaplain (and Milledgeville Mayor) Dannie Kennedy, Lt. Hershel Hollin, Doris Hollin, Roy Davis, Ricky Essary and First Responder/Secretary Margie Alexander. “We don’t recognize our firefighters. We expect them to be there when that tone goes off and we say, ‘Okay, fellows. We appreciate it. You did a good job. We’ll see you next time. Get on back home.’ Another thing we don’t do is recognize these wives. If these wives did not support us, we could not do the things we do,” Chief Alexander said. The fallen firefighters were honored by a tolling of the bells ceremony. The tolling of the bells has historically summoned the firefighters to the station, signaled the beginning of a shift, notified departments of a call for help and indicated that a call was completed and the unit had returned to the station. Departments also have sounded a series of bells when a firefighter dies in the line of duty to alert all members that their comrade had made the ultimate sacrifice.

Busy Bees prepare for the McNairy County Quilt Show By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

The Busy Bees will hold the McNairy County Quilt Show, “All for the Love of Quilting”, on Oct. 19-20 at the Bethel Springs United Pentecostal Church at 3591 Main St. in Bethel Springs. The admission fee is $5 and the quilts can be entered in the show at no charge at 3 p.m on Oct. 13 and Oct. 14 at the church. Viewer’s Choice Awards will be presented at 3 p.m. on Oct. 20. Food will be available on both days of the event. There will also be a quilt and craft sale sponsored by Needles-n-Pins on both days of the event in the gymnasium of the church. There will be various kinds of quilts, handmade crafts and a bake sale, according to Linda Smith of Needles-nPins. They will also be quilting during the sale. “We anticipate this annual show with great joy because we love to carry on the heritage of quilting,” Smith said. There will be a quilt art show that any student K-12 may participate in either as an individual or through their school. The deadline for entries was Sept. 28. Judging will be during the quilt show. On Oct. 20, there will be an antique tractor show in the parking lot of the church. The show is a huge tourist draw for the county. McNairy County Quilt Show Chairperson Doris Reece told the Independent Appeal last Monday that she expects about 400 or 500 people to attend the show. “We’re looking forward to it,” she said. People come from all over West Tenn., from surrounding states and from all over the United States, including California. This is the 32nd year for the show. The first 12 were sponsored by RSVP and held at the First Baptist Church in Adamsville. The following year, the show moved to the First United Methodist Church in Adamsville, and in 1994, it moved to its present location. The Busy Bees are members of the church united in their love of their church and quilting. Every year the show displays around 200 quilts. The Needle-n-Pins Quilters are a group of women,

Common Sense: Will your children live better than you? By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

America has traditionally been the land of optimism as well as opportunity. Historically, we have believed that each generation will be better off than previous ones. However, over the past 20 years, some polls suggest that pessimism is creeping in. These poll responses are not without reason, either. From 1950 until 1973, economic growth averaged 4.2 percent a year. After a temporary dip to an average yearly growth rate of 2.5 percent from 1974 to 1981, average growth rates went up to between 3 and 3.5 percent in the 1980s and 1990s. Growth rates from 2002 until 2010 decreased to only half of that. Median household income has been going down since the recession in 2007 and stagnated in the 2000s before that. At the average growth rate of 2 percent from the mid-19th century until the beginning of this one, each generation’s standard of living would increase 60 percent over 25 years. If the growth rate were only half of that, each generation’s standard of living would still increase by 30 percent. However, long run increases in the standard of living depend on productivity growth, because in order to have growth without inflation, the amount

of goods and services needs to grow faster than the amount of money in circulation. Productivity growth is also slowing. It grew at an average annual rate of 1.9 percent from 1959 until 1973, less than 1 percent a year from 1974 to 1990 and a little over 1 percent from 1990 until 2001 and about a 1.5% from 2002-2010. Since productivity growth depends on innovation and innovation is unpredictable, predicting income growth is also unpredictable. To paraphrase Yogi Berra, the thing about the future is that it is unpredictable. However, based upon what we do know, the pessimists are not without support. Economist Robert Gordon argues that the relatively rapid productivity growth from 1890 until 1972 was driven by such innovations as electricity, the internal combustion engine, indoor plumbing, chemicals and petroleum and their spinoffs such as air travel, air conditioning and interstate highways. Once the full impact of these innovations were felt, productivity growth slowed until the mid-1990s when such innovations as the internet, cell phones and personal computers increased it until the mid-2000s when their full impact was felt and productivity began to decline again.

Even if there are innovations yet to be discovered and deployed that would have a similar impact as past ones, the U.S. economy faces several headwinds that Gordon believes could cut growth by half or less than the 2 percent that occurred between 1860 and 2007. The first headwind is demographic. Baby boomers, those born between the end of World War II until the mid1960s, are reaching retirement age which will mean fewer workers. The second is in some measures of educational attainment we are stagnating, and some are not going up as fast as in other countries. Even if the problem in high school and below could be solved, and we have been trying with limited success for a generation to do so, there is still the problem of the increasing cost of a college education. The third is globalization and the internet, which increases competition and brings prices down, but also tends to depress wages. The fourth drag on economic growth is household and government debt. For each dollar used to pay debt, there is one less dollar for investment. The fourth is energy. Though there is disagreement about how much oil is left to be discovered, it is clear we are running out of cheap oil.

AiM shows that arts involve, invest and inspire through it’s programs and events Arts in McNairy growth has reached a new pinnacle as our programs have involved, invested in and inspired our neighbors in McNairy County. A new level of funding for AiM is necessary as this growth continues. AiM is faced with meeting financial obligations and opportunities to provide high-quality arts programs in our community. For the past 11 years, AiM has shared its mission but now we want to tell the other half of our story which is all about the accomplishments of our participants and supporters through the work of AiM. After all, artists and audiences are why we exist. Arts in McNairy’s Capital Campaign is entering its second phase now that the Latta Visitor’s and Cultural Center is finished and operational. AiM needs $30,000 to reach its capital campaign goal of $50,000 by December of 2014. “Our focus for the future is to maintain operations of the Latta facility and continue to provide creative opportunities and performances for the citizens of McNairy County,” said Fundraising and Development Chairman, Charles Lee, Jr. “As this second phase gets underway, donors will be excited to know that we are now offering ticket comps and recognition benefits starting at $15.” AiM has these new benefit levels posted on-line on the Donate page. Any individual or organization who has donated to the Capital Campaign in 2012 will receive these benefits as well for the coming year. “Arts in McNairy benefits our community in multiple ways,” said Dr. Shawn Pitts, Founder and Honorary Board member. According to estimates from the Americans for the Arts, at the $50,000 operating level, AiM annually would bring; 3.3 new jobs for McNairy Countians, $117,410 in sales revenues for local businesses in addition to

ticket sales, $70,401 in new household income and $10,527 in to the local and state tax coffers. Holmes adds that “Audience members spend an average of $24.00 per visit shopping, eating and buying gas in McNairy County before and after arts events. AiM also is committed to spending its dollars locally to produce our many projects as well.” “Ticket prices do cover many costs for AiM” explained Pitts. “However, these ticket prices are set for affordability not profitability. AiM is committed to keeping participation and ticket costs low so every person who wants to participate in or attend an AiM event can. Donations from individuals, small businesses, grants and corporations are key to making AiM affordable for the long term.” Arts in McNairy’s future plans include a full season of theater productions, community music events, a new concert/professional performance series and movie nights in conjunction with the McNairy Regional Alliance. We are looking at ways for our patrons to buy their tickets online and in advance of a show as well. In the next three months, AiM will also announce more collaborations with community partners in McNairy County as well as statewide organizations and businesses. We have high hopes for this next capital funding phase for AiM. We know that there is no shortage of talent and support in McNairy County to continue the AiM mission.

“The wrong direction.”

“Two reasons it’s moving in the wrong direction. Obama’s taking the economy down, and ... this country needs to get back to its former roots—God and Jesus. I think it’s lost its bearing on what our forefathers instilled in this country. They’ve lost touch and need to get back to God and what this country is all about.”

SUNRISE By David Coy

Why Children 2 My eldest brother when he was a youth or young man struggled to understand why children grieve or suffer in their lives. Why do children blame themselves when their parents separate because of divorce? Why does a child depart this life before their parent? Perhaps the most distressing aspect of loss is when a child is involved. How do we reconcile these crises in our own mind? Understandably some people do struggle to cope with similar circumstances. A sad but grim reality is according to UNICEF estimates, approximately 21,000 children die around the globe every day. This is not the only reason children sorrow. Divorce, lose of a beloved pet through death or other separation, moving away from familiar surroundings, natural catastrophes, all these experiences impact a family and unless a child behaves abnormally, their grief may go unnoticed. When it is observed loving adults will likely experience compounded grief. It is natural for children to feel responsibility for a loss they do not completely understand. Even adults will second guess their actions in raising a child when events unfold where the result is not completely understood. We grow attachments in the relationships we develop. It is difficult to balance in our hearts why such relationships end abruptly and whose duration is much shorter than we desired, especially for the young. This is true whether we are talking about people or objects, such as houses or communities. They may have difficulty with separation anxiety, anger, guilt, depression, or blame. They will need enormous support, comfort, and reassurance that in life change happens and we need to be flexible and adjust, as it is difficult for everyone. Communicate this in a unified way. This is Sunrise.

Virgel Grissom Virgel Grissom, age 83, died October 8, 2012 at McNairy Regional Hospital in Selmer. His arrangements are incomplete at this time. The Corinthian Funeral Home is in charge.

Bethel Springs Mayor Kay Cox shows grant writer Randy Nelson a letter from Gov. Bill Haslam’s office, awarding Bethel Springs a $350,000 Water Systems Improvement regular round Community Development Block Grant. This grant will be used to shore up the connection with the Selmer water system, which supplies the city’s water and requires around $11,000 in matching funds from the city. According to the letter, a contract will be emailed to the city in the coming weeks and the funds will be released after that. An Environmental Review Record is due within three months. Nelson has been approved as administrator of the project and Ed Hargraves of A2H for engineering services. The city may now begin environmental review, administration and engineering design for the project. The city has also received two other CDGB grants over the past year. The first is a $500,000 Disaster Grant that will be used for a fire truck, warning sirens and a backup generator to be used in the event of a natural disaster. Another $100,000 CDGB Grant will be used for new water meters. Nelson, who wrote the grant applications, is with Thornton and Nelson, P.C., a West Tennessee community planning and grant writing firm.

The Senior Games By Dorothy Goodrum Contributor

Well once again it was time for the senior olympics. A time when the home around West Tennessee gets together and the games began. We had the privilege to take six of our best to try to bring home the medal for our home. As we were getting ready to leave, as always, they had to tell me to come on, not that I was late, I just had a couple of more things I needed to get done. The trip to the games is always a good time. I always enjoy listening to the stories they have to tell. I was with Anne Manley and Barbara Ferguson who really enjoyed telling me about picking cotton. The other four residents who were with us were Ethel Greer, Cindy Kerr, Patty Whitman and Billy Joe Carroll. The passing of the torch and the banners were done, so now it was time for the

games to begin. They take these games very seriously and try their best to win. We did bring home one medal, thanks to Ms. Ethel Greer. After a good lunch, we were ready for the talent competition and really enjoyed listening to them sing, share a poem that they have written and so many other things. Next, was the dance competition. Now, I am not talking about a slow waltz, these folks know how to dance. The music was from the 50’s and they could all teach us how to do the twist. Now this is my music, so I always volunteer to take pictures so I can get a front row seat. I was sitting by the judges’ table and heard the judges talking; they wanted to call some of the dancers back for a second look. The judge who has been at most of the games was making her list and the other new judge said, "Are they able to come back?" I don't know who

laughed the most that season, judge or me. I assured him it would not be a problem for them to have a return time on the dance floor. I don't know where we get the idea just because someone is not in their early adulthood that they are ready to be put on a shelf. I can promise you most of them have more energy than most of us. That, my friend, is why I love geriatric patient's. They have so much to offer, experiences in life that can help all of us if we just listen. We all try hard to keep our kids from making the same mistakes in life that we made, and that is what a senior citizen can do for all of us. If you have the time to listen they will share. If you don't have the time, do you think you may just be too busy with things that may not really matter at the end of the day? Until next time.

Cards upend undefeated Tigers By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer

Taylor Henry’s fifth interception of the season was a big one for the Adamsville Cardinals, giving the team a much needed spark in a memorable win over the Hardin County Tigers last Friday in front of the estimated 3,000 people in attendance at Lendon Martin Memorial Stadium.

Adamsville Hardin Co.

10 09

Staring at a 3-0 deficit with less than two minutes left in the first half, Henry stared down his receiver, jumped his route, intercepted a Hardin County pass and took it to the end zone for a quick six points, shifting all the momentum in the heated battle over to the Cardinals while giving his team a 7-3 lead. “(Henry) is a quiet guy, and he’s a gamer,” Cardinal head coach Brandon Gray said of his senior corner. “He shines in those situations...We jumped cover-two on them, and he was sitting there in the flat and made a great play on it.” Though the “pick-six” was a huge pickme-up for Adamsville, Henry’s work was not done. He popped the clutch once again midway through the fourth quarter

when he intercepted a long pass while the Tigers tried to add on to their 9-7 lead. The lead would have been 10-7 had it not been for a botched extra point in the third quarter, following a Blakney Austin touchdown run on Hardin County’s first drive of the second half. Dustin Plunk drilled the go-ahead, 25-yard field goal shortly after the fourth quarter began to put the Cardinals up 10-9 with more than nine minutes to play. With the successful field goal, the senior kicker has made five of his seven attempts this season. Henry’s second interception of the game, and sixth of the season, gave Adamsville the ball on their own 27-yard line with 8:30 to play, but the Cardinals were forced to punt after a three-and-out. After partially blocking the AHS punt, Hardin County was set up with good field position inside the Cards’ 40. Despite the good field position, the Tigers came away from the drive disappointed after a 40-yard field goal attempt sailed wide right, but Adamsville could not take advantage of the miss.

tackles and intercepting two passes, one of which was returned for the Red Rage’s lone touchdown. Lambert played a solid game, catching five passes for 88 yards.

When the Ramer Eagles played Middleton at home last Thursday, they came away with their sixth win of the season and a huge victory on homecoming night.

Their defense was solid throughout the contest, but their

offensive efficiency stole the show for Ramer. “Our defense, again, played a great game. Other than a couple of late touchdowns, we did not allow many yards,” said Ramer head coach Jeremy Blakely before giving his ball carriers a verbal pat on the back. “Kylin (Wynn) only needed six carries to get 172 yards, and Tavion Luster came in for Ky-

Rain leaves Bobcats blanked Set your sights on Friday night By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer

The Bobcats fought hard when they traveled to Jackson, Tenn. to take on Jackson Central-Merry in their fourth district game of the year. The weather stopped the game after halftime, and McNairy Central was sent home with yet another loss.

JCM 20 McNairy Central 00

The Bobcats came in with a game plan to keep the ball away from the Cougars. Quarterback Issac Cagle slowed the Bobcat of-

fense down, letting time run almost all the way off the game clock before snapping the ball, but the strategy was not as effective as they would have liked. The Bobcats’ offense got held up and were forced to punt. After a bit of a high snap, the punt by Cagle was blocked, and the Cougars were able to scoop up the ball and take it in for their first score of the night. MCHS took back over on offense and was able to move the ball some, but the team was not able to continue down the field. The Bobcats tried to convert on fourth down but fell just inches short on their second drive of the game, and they never got anything going after that point. The Bobcat defense, well rested, finally came on the field late in the first quarter of the game. The Cats were able to slow down the Cougar offense but could not hold them for long as JCM scored their second touchdown just under a minute into the second quarter. After another punt from the offense, the Bobcat ‘D’ came back on the field and continued to play well until they gave up their second touchdown of the game with less than three minutes left in the half. This gave the Cougars the 20-0 lead, that would come to be the final result of the game. After halftime, the rain began, and after waiting as long as the referees and coaches

Cards fall short against Eagles hand Lions high-powered Panthers homecoming loss By Andrew Alexander

The Cardinals traveled to Parsons, Tenn. last Thursday to take on the Decatur County Middle School (Riverside) Panthers, but they failed to come home with a win.

Homecoming night was not all it was cracked up to be for the Selmer Lions last Thursday.

Chester Co. 26 Selmer 06

The Eagles utilized a persistent and effective running game against the Lions, leading to a big victory over Selmer, who has had to deal with a rough stretch of games to close out the 2012 season. Chester County led by two scores after one quarter, and they increased the lead to 20-0 by halftime. Selmer put together a scoring drive in the fourth quarter, led by the Lions’ lone touchdown-scorer Chase Wallace, but the Eagle defense would render no more scoring opportunities for the Lions. The loss gave Selmer its third in the last four games after facing off with Ramer, Hardin County, and Chester County. The Lions (3-4, 1-2) were awarded a win for Alcorn Central’s forfeit on Sept. 20, which was the date SMS had originally scheduled for homecoming.

32 08

The Cardinals, despite Peyton Terry running for more than 100 yards, were not able to move the ball very well against the Panthers. At times, the offense looked good, but other times, things just would not go right for the Cardinals as they watched their chance for their second win of the season slowly slip away. The defense, led by Brayden Horton and Braden Austin, held the physical Panther team as long as they could. Horton and Austin finished the game with eight tackles apiece. “This was a tough game,” said coach Michael Harvill. “Decatur County is a good one-loss team. They are a very physical football team that executes their plays very well.” Cardinal Tristen Coleman finished the game with the team’s only touchdown while accumulating 70 yards in the process. Adamsville (1-6, 0-4) will travel to Wayne County next week for their final game of the season. The Cardinals are looking to take better care of the football and come away with a win to end the season on a high note.

Bizzell Jr. tiebreaker takes week six prize By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer

With a predicted point total of 55, Gary Bizzell Jr., of Bethel Springs, edged out two other competitors with his tiebreaker to claim the prize for week six of Top O’ The River’s 2012 Beat the Coaches: College Football Pick’em. It was tough sledding for our pickers and coaches last week. Bizzell Jr., along with David Gray, of Michie, and our week four winner, Zachary Weatherford, all finished 4-1 to top the week’s final standings with no one finishing 5-0. Apparently, the outcomes of last week’s games were hard to foresee. No coach finished with a record better than 2-3, and only a handful of contestants finished in the black at all with several pickers missing on all five games. One quarter of our contestants picked three winners out of the bunch, leaving more than half of our pickers in the red with records of 2-3 or below. Coaches Rennard Woodmore and Michael Stroup struggled, finishing 1-4 as Brandon Gray and Brandon Alldredge ended the week at 2-3. The horse, on the other hand, bested all four coaches with his 3-2 finish in week six. Houdini saw Vanderbilt’s 19-15 win over Missouri coming, and he thinks the Tigers may have bitten off more than they could chew when they jumped to the SEC.

He also was correct in selecting the Buckeyes, who downed the Nebraska Cornhuskers 63-38 at home, and the Gamecocks, who destroyed Georgia at home 35-7 in our game of the week. Houdini did take misses with Florida beating LSU 14-6 and West Virginia outscoring Texas 48-45 in a Big 12 shootout. This week, Houdini likes Oklahoma to win over Texas in the Red River Rivalry when the No. 15 Longhorns take on the No. 13 Sooners. He’s also taking Stanford to win over Notre Dame for the Legends Trophy that the No. 17 Cardinal squad has owned for the past three seasons over the No. 7 Fighting Irish. In a matchup of two Texas Big 12 teams, Houdini likes the Baylor Bears to pull out a victory over the TCU Horned Frogs. The horse also wants to see the now No. 3 South Carolina Gamecocks win on the road against the No. 9 Bayou Bengals of LSU, and in our game of the week, he’s going with the Volunteers in an upset victory over the undefeated, No. 20 Mississippi State Bulldogs. Wanna play along?

Richardson was selected for his performance against Jackson Central-Merry. The senior ran for 51 yards on 11 carries against the Cougars. Plunk was selected for his offensive performance against Hardin County in which he kicked the go-ahead and eventual game-winning, 25-yard field goal and converted his only extra point opportunity. Henry was Adamsville’s defensive selection, scoring the Cardinals’ only touchdown on an interception return, picking off another later in the game, and recording 6 tackles.

Whirley scores five times in Michie win By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer

Michie Blue Devils played their final home game of the season last Thursday, and came away with a huge win.

Michie 48 Tishomingo Co. 22

After recognizing the eighthgrade class before their final home game, the Blue Devils came out rolling on offense. Running back Dylan Whirley was able to take the first snap more than 60 yards to the end zone to give the Blue Devils an early lead, and they did not look back. Whirley was able to get his second touchdown of the game in the first quarter as well, and went on to finish with more than 190 yards rushing. Clint Coleman, had a wonderful game through the air, completing all but one of his seven passes while throwing for more than 150 yards. “Everyone gave a great effort,” said head coach Michael Cleary.

“We played well and were able to send our eighth-graders out with a big home win. Korey Barnes, Cody Anderson, Alex Browder, Jarrett Mask, Dylan Whirley, Dakota Parrish, and Franklin Jernigan all deserve a lot of credit.” The Blue Devil defense played just as well. The team was anchored on defense by Anderson and Whirley. The Blue Devils experienced

something that they were not very used to out of an opponent – passing. The team from Tishomingo came out ready to throw the ball, but Michie’s defense did what it had to do to adjust. The Blue Devils (4-2, 1-2) will travel to play the Selmer Lions (3-4, 1-2) Thursday at Don Whitaker Memorial Stadium for their final game of the year. This county clash should be a good ending to a great season. (Michie) Passing- Clint Coleman: 6 Comp, 7 Att, 152 Yds, 3 Td

Volleycats celebrate seniors Lady Cats pick up two wins By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer

Eight seniors were honored at the McNairy Central Lady Bobcat Volleyball senior night last Thursday before the Volleycats took on Lexington. Though MCHS took the Lady Tigers to the limit in their second set, Lexington emerged the victor, winning in straight sets in spite of strong play from the Volleycat seniors. Mikaela Rowland led the team with 12 service points and 25 digs in the loss. On Oct. 2, Rowland had another strong

outing against the Chester County Lady Eagles. She finished with nine service points, 21 digs, and a kill. She was only outdone by fellow senior Brianna Bodiford, who finished the match with a team-leading 10 service points and 40 assists. Unfortunately, strong play from seniors was no match for the tough district competition the Volleycats met last week, falling 3-0 to the Lady Eagles for the first of two losses. MCHS traveled to South Side High School in Jackson, Tenn. last Monday for the opening match of the District 15 A-AA Tournament in which they took on Liberty. Results were not available at deadline.

By Andrew Alexander

against the Lady Crusaders in Jackson, Tenn. on Oct. 2, Lady Bobcats Haven Phelps and Rebekah Lowrie gave their team the spark they needed to pick up the win. Trailing 1-0 after the first half, and for a big portion of the second, Phelps snuck a goal past the Liberty goalkeeper to even the score 1-1 with 25 minutes remaining in the match. The winning goal came with just five minutes remaining in the contest when Lowrie netted a score to put MCHS up 2-1 for good. “We had a good passing game, which set up some good looks at the goal,” Lott said about the comeback. “Our defense was more aggressive, and Holley Moore had several tough saves to preserve the win.” Moore finished the game with 17 saves while shutting the Crusaders out in the second half.

The Lady Bobcats hit the road for two soccer matches last week and came home with two wins. After defeating Liberty and Wayne County, McNairy Central (7-3-2, 2-11) played a home match against Madison after deadline last Tuesday and will host senior night against Fayette-Ware Thursday at 5 p.m.

In a hard-fought match against the Lady Wildcats last Thursday, McNairy Central’s Rebekah Lowrie scored her 10th and 11th goals of the season to help her team to a 3-2 win. “This was another physical game,” said Lady Bobcat head coach Jerry Lott. “Coach Becky Adkins and I were pleased that our team was able to match their intensity.” Wayne County scored twice in the first half, but Lowrie’s first goal, accompanied by Haven Phelps’ goal at the 37-minute mark, evened the score 2-2 at halftime. In the second half, Phelps sent a pass to Lowrie, and she forwarded it into the net to take a 1-goal advantage that her team was able to hold onto. “Our defense kept the ball pushed up to the offensive end for most of the game,” Lott added.

Softball Lady Cards take loss on senior night goes on for Avon By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer

By Jeff York Contributor

A father does not often get to play on the team with his son in an adult softball league, but one Eastview dad had the privilege of playing with his three sons this summer. Avon Shelton, 56, has been a softball standout for 42 years and has played on many championship teams. While he is proud of all the titles, his proudest memories are getting to play on the same team as his sons Scott, Ross and Will. “The boys did not want me to quit because they wanted me to play with them,” said Shelton. “I laughed and told them we would play until all four of us hit a home run in the same game. When we did it, we just kept playing.” Shelton began his career in 1970 at age 14 playing second base for Chewalla Baptist. He helped the church team win five state championships and many league titles over the years. “I enjoyed playing church ball because of the relationships we built with the other church teams,” Shelton said. “We felt like when we played our best ball that we could beat anyone.” A top memory for Shelton was winning the ASA Class B 1986 Southeast Regional in Oklahoma City, Ok. His team won eight straight games after losing their first game of the tournament. Shelton believes softball was hurt when they began to limit home runs and has been a reason the game is not as popular. He once hit 25 home runs in one tournament in Dyersburg. “I still enjoy playing the game and I still want to win,” laughed Shelton. “This is my hobby and is a way for me to get some exercise.” He played this year on three teams in Corinth and two of his teams won their league while his third team tied for first. Shelton is proud to say he is a Christian. He is a deacon at Chewalla Baptist and has served as church treasurer for almost 30-years. “I do not want people to remember me as just a softball player,” said Shelton. “I want them to remember me as a Christian first.” The old-timer does not think he will last long enough to play with his grandchildren, but he does not have any plans on retiring from the game. He may not see as well, hit the ball as hard or run as fast in the past, but he still believes he can get the big hit in the game. There is no doubt that he played the game the proper way from the time he was a teenager until he is now eligible for AARP. He was a great example to his teammates, family or friends, through all the years.

Senior night for the Adamsville Lady Cardinals did not end with a win, but Adamsville continued playing strong defense heading into the district tournament.

Following a scoreless first half, the Lady Cardinals honored their four seniors, Elisabeth Churchwell, Darby Culver, Alaina McCall, and Samantha Oaks, and their parents with a ceremony on the field to recognize their hard work and dedication through their years playing soccer for AHS on Oct. 2 during their match against the Lady Wildcats of Wayne County. In the second half, Wayne County squeaked a shot past junior Adamsville goalkeeper Olivia Wright to take a 1-0 lead that proved to be the difference in the match. Wright finished the game with six saves.

three matches. “However, our offense has been very bad. We have not scored in three games. We have to do something before district tournament.” The Lady Cards’ match scheduled against Madison Academic for last Thursday was canceled, but Adamsville will host Sacred Heart of Jesus High School of Jackson, Tenn. at home this Thursday.

Adamsville had several opportunities to net a goal in the contest, including Oaks’ rocket that drilled the crossbar of the goalpost, narrowly missing an equalizer, but the Lady Cardinals were unable to tie the match. “We have played well the last three games on defense,” Lady Cardinal head coach Rebecca Ashe said as Adamsville has allowed only one goal in their last

would allow, the game was called due to the stormy weather. With the loss, McNairy Central (0-7, 0-4) will still be searching for the season’s first win when they travel to Bolivar Central (1-6, 1-3) to take on the Tigers Friday night. Bolivar was win-less until pulling out a district win against Fayette-Ware (0-7, 0-4) last Friday. The Bobcat losing streak is currently at eight games, dating back to the 2011-2012 season. Their last win came against Fayette-Ware on Oct. 21, 2011.

drive, and Hardin County took over on the Cardinal 14-yard line. Luckily for Adamsville, the Tigers coughed up a fumble of their own on the very next play. Though offensive yardage was at a premium, Zak Neary still ran strong and finished the game just shy of 150 yards on 29 carries. A big hit by a pair of Cardinal defenders caused the once deafening stadium to fall silent as the Tiger and Cardinal coaching staffs rushed onto the field to aid Hardin County quarterback Kendall Adkisson, who suffered a concussion on the play with 2:30 to go in the fourth quarter and HCHS inside AHS territory with momentum. “(Adkisson) is a great competitor and a great athlete. You really hate to see that happen to a kid,” Gray said. “It’s one of those things when everything stops, and the game becomes secondary.” After lying flat on his chest and stiff as a rail, he was taken off the field on a longboard by Emergency Medical Services. Fortunately, Gray said Adkisson was kept at the hospital overnight for observation but returned home the next day. Adamsville’s defense continued its mission following the injury and forced a turnover on downs to regain possession. The Cards then ran out the clock for their second victory over Hardin County in as many seasons, matching a feat accomplished only one other time in AHS Football history, which just so happened to be

when Gray was quarterbacking the Cardinals in the 1990-1991 seasons. The Tigers, who came into the night averaging more than 40 points per game, were held to a meager 210 yards of total offense and just nine points. “We’ve got a great staff,” said Cardinal defensive coordinator Rennard Woodmore starting at the top of the list of Adamsville coaches and working through almost every defensive starter. “The whole defense, as a unit, all worked together to get this win.” After the loss, Hardin County (6-1, 2-0) The win keeps the Cardinals as the No. 6-ranked team in Class 2A, and they are ranked No. 6 in the Jackson Sun’s Dirty Dozen as well. Adamsville will host its senior night Friday against Middleton. With a win, AHS will improve to 4-0 in District 15-A for the second

consecutive season having already claimed the school’s second district championship in a row, although Gray feels like the team still has not played its best game. “Good teams peak at the right time,” said Gray. “Our defense is going to keep getting better, and our offense, they’re going to keep getting better too. When we do...it’s going to be ugly.”

Selmer Elementary receives Focus School grant By Christen Coulon Editor

Selmer Elementary is one of 56 schools in the state named as a winner in the Focus School grant competition. The announcement was made by the Tennessee Department of Education and will provide an estimated $19.2 million investment to schools across the state during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years. The winning schools will be awarded between $100,000 and $300,000 each year, depending on enrollment size and satisfactory performance. The award will be used to create and sustain improvement plans that close student achievement gaps among subgroups, such as racial and ethnic groups, students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, students with disabilities and English-language learners. Dr. Sondra Kiser, assistant principal

at Selmer Elementary said that according to the documents that they have received with the grants, they will receive $200,00 this year. Based on improvement the school will be eligible for an additional $200,000 in grants next year as well. The grant money will be focused on individualized student support, Kiser said. In addition, the school plans to utilize staff here that have been trained in project Empower to come back and train all teachers who have not received that training. Empower addresses common core standards and strategies with students and teaches students how to break down word problems. Kiser said that it is mainly a math program but she feels like the skills can be used in other areas as well. She said Selmer will also be introducing a program called ‘The leader in Me.’ “We are excited about this program because it creates a leader in every child,”

Kiser said. While the focus grant program is designed to improve the performance gap between racial or ethnic subgroups, the money will be spent on all students. Kiser said that a priority will be given for African American students to improve their proficiency levels. The school has set a goal to improve proficiency levels by 3% among African American students. “We feel honored to have been chosen for this grant,” Kiser said. The grant program is designed to support Focus Schools – the 10 percent of schools in Tennessee with the largest achievement gaps between groups of students – in developing deliberate, data-driven strategies to ensure growth for student subgroups that have underperformed their peers. “Using this grant, Tennessee’s Focus Schools will create real opportunities to close student achievement gaps while providing examples of success and les-

sons learned for all schools across the state,” said Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman. The state named 167 Focus Schools in August, a part of Tennessee’s accountability system developed through its waiver from No Child Left Behind, and 152 of those Focus Schools applied for the grant. School faculty, along with parents, outside experts and community partners, submitted plans in September based on the latest research in the areas of individualized student support, staff professional development, extended learning time, community engagement and performance management. For those Focus Schools that were not awarded grant funds, the state plans to enlist the support of external academic specialists who will provide personalized, embedded technical assistance to Focus Schools as they work to close existing gaps.

Full-time fire fighter Corey Dabbs visits students at Ramer Elementary School.

Ms. Donna Wright’s fourth and fifth-grade Social Studies classes have been focusing their attention on people who serve our country by serving as emergency response workers. During the week of September 11, students researched the events surrounding September 11, 2001 that forever changed our lives as citizens of the United States. Mr. Corey Dabbs, a fulltime fireman, and father to Blake and Maddie Dabbs, students at Ramer School, came to share with Ms. Donna’s classes about the job he does as an emergency worker. He encouraged students to have a fire safety plan at home and to know that plan and be prepared NOW—because you never know when it may be needed.

that Rose loves so much about the sport? Rose said she very much enjoys the speed and control that is involved, as well as being able to meet so many people. She continued by saying the most difficult part of motocross is executing the numerous jumps. Despite any difficulties she faces in jumps, Rose has placed second, third, fourth and fifth in races. Thus, will she be doing motocross professionally? “I wouldn’t say professionally, but there’s an amateur National Race called Loretta Lynn’s that I’d like to qualify for in the next two years.” Besides pursuing some amateur races after graduating, Rose plans to attend the University of North Alabama to be a pediatric nurse. After graduation, Rose said she will definitely miss being with all of her friends.

MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin campus community is now more accessible from mobile devices, thanks to the efforts of the university’s Instructional Technology Center (ITC) and Web Services. A new UT Martin mobile application will allow users to access a variety of campus services, ranging from the social to the academic. Components of the new app include a complete campus telephone directory, athletics schedule and news updates, local maps and the Paul Meek Library catalog. UT Martin students and faculty will also be able to access their Blackboard learning content, allowing them to view or post grades, participate in online course discussion boards and download course assignments on-thego. The academic and social calendars not only provide a list of upcoming events, but also alert users to activities near their current locations. “We hope the new UTM mobile app will allow users to maintain a close connection to our campus,” said Craig Ingram, interim director of ITC and Web Services. “Whether you want to keep up with news and events, check Skyhawk athletic schedules and scores or use the directory lookup to make a contact on campus, we feel this is a great beginning to a platform that we plan to continue tobuild on and enhance.” Ingram is one of several key developers of the UT Martin app, including Weston Gentry, assistant webmaster, ITC and Web Services; Corey Jones, senior computer systems specialist, Information Technology Services; Trudy Henderson, administrative specialist, Office of Intercollegiate Athletics; and Sharla Brink, former publications coordinator, Office of University Relations. The free app is available for all iOS and Android platform devices (version 2.2 and up). All other devices can access the mobile web version at http://m.utm.edu.

Even so, there are still many students who want to further their education and can’t because they don’t have the money. With state support for higher education diminishing, colleges have no alternative but to raise tuition. Unfortunately this leaves some students at a loss to afford the education they so desperately desire. Here’s how you and your organization can help. The organizers of the 11th Annual Bagels and Bluegrass Bicycle Century Tour have agreed to make the JSCC scholarship fund the primary recipient of profits from the ride. A contribution will also be made to Friends of Chickasaw State Park and Pinson Mounds State Parks. These two nonprofit organizations work hard throughout the year inside the parks and are a great help in making Bagels and Bluegrass a success. The event, held at Jackson State on Saturday, Oct. 13, will include a bicycle ride, food, bluegrass music and a whole
