Spectrum is located at 500 Industrial Park Drive, and the 26 new jobs will be in addition to the approximately 200 people that Spectrum now employs.

Deanna Parker and Bryan Forsyth also received scholarships but were unable to attend the photo shoot. Parker will be attending the University of Tennessee at Martin McNairy County Center at Selmer, Jones and Forsyth will attend Tennessee Technological Center at Crump and Kennedy and Baxter will attend Jackson State Community College. Currently, the towns of Selmer and Michie have chosen to participate in the Roundup program made up of both the One to One classroom technology program and the Last Dollar Scholarship Fund that was originally proposed by Mayor Robinson. This fund will be used to provide scholarships to students pursuing a post-secondary education. Applications will soon be taken for Spring 2013 scholarships, according to UTM Selmer Director Deidra Beene. “Remember, all of the money collected by the Last Dollar Scholarship Fund go directly to the scholarships,” Beene said.

How I became a storm spotter -- Part 1: What do storm spotters do anyway? By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

When my editor, Christen Coulon, suggested I attend a storm spotter class last September in Selmer, I was intrigued. Like many other people who attended, I confused a storm spotter with a storm chaser. I had seen the movie Twister and thought that storm chasing was exciting, though dangerous. McNairy County Emergency Management Agency Director Rudy Moore quickly disabused us of the notion that we were attending a storm chasing rather than a storm spotting class and clarified the difference. “You will see that this is good information as you go through it, but by no means think that you are a storm chaser. I’d hate for you to get out here and get hurt or something,” Moore cautioned at the beginning of the class. The class was conducted by Jim Branda, who is a forecaster at the National Weather Service office in Memphis. Branda first explained what storm spotters are and why they are important. Storm spotters are part of an NWS program called SKYWARN. This is a National Weather Service program that consists of trained weather spotters who provide reports of severe and hazardous weather to help meteorologists make life-saving warning decisions. SKYWARN is a team effort between the Memphis office issuing the watches and warnings, and the news media passing that information on to the public and trained spotters. Spotters are necessary because, although the NWS has access to data from Doppler radar, satellite and surface weather stations, technology cannot detect every instance of hazardous weather. “Unfortunately, radar does have limitations,” Branda said. One is the earth’s curvature. At 30 miles away, radar can see the storm’s base, but at 90 miles away, it can’t. At this distance and beyond, radar can only see the middle and upper portion of the storm. Radar can detect rotation and a hook echo in a storm

but cannot conclusively determine the presence of a tornado. A hook echo is named after its shape and is a radar reflectivity pattern that forms when precipitation gets wrapped around the storm’s mesocyclone and is a favorable region for tornado development. The mesocyclone is a vortex of air in a storm that rises and rotates around a vertical axis. “It’s more important that spotters are out there situated to give us the ground truth,” Branda said. Doppler radar, which stands for Radio Detection and Ranging, sends out radio waves at the speed of light and electronically converts the reflected radio waves into pictures showing the location and intensity of precipitation. This allows it to detect thunderstorms. Doppler radar can also detect movement toward or away from the radar by examining the change in frequency for the returning radio waves. Spotters fill in the gaps by reporting hail, wind damage, flooding, heavy snow and tornadoes. Spotters are needed to report how storms are impacting their area. NWS is a federal agency in the Department of Commerce under NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). It has 122 field offices with about 5,000 employees. “That’s not really a whole lot,” Branda said. The annual budget is diminishing. “It used to be $900 million, but it seems over the past few years it continues to get lower,” Branda explained. It costs $3 per year per citizen for their services. Most offices have a total of about 20-25 people, of which the majority are meteorologists. The offices are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A lot of the staff are on rotating shifts. They have a minimum of two people on weekends and nights, with a lot more people working during normal business hours. The office in Memphis is the nearest one. Its warning area covers four states, West Tennessee, the bootheel of Missouri, northeast and central Arkansas and about the northern third of Mississippi. Read Part 2 of “How I became a storm spotter” in next week’s Independent Appeal to learn more about severe weather and what you should do when it occurs.

Unemployment down in county, state, nation By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Unemployment in McNairy County fell 0.9 percentage points, to 9 percent in September, according to preliminary non-seasonally adjusted figures released by the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. However, the reason it fell was the labor force shrunk. The number of people working also fell, as did the number of unemployed. The labor force fell by 160. There were 40 fewer people working and the ranks of the unemployed fell by 120. Over the past year, the rate has fallen by a full percentage point. Of surrounding counties, Chester County had the lowest rate at 8.5 percent, followed by Hardin County at 9 percent, Alcorn County at 9.4 percent and Hardeman County at 10.9 percent. Unemployment figures for Alcorn County are from the Mississippi Department of Employment Security. Tennessee’s unemployment rate fell 0.2 percentage points, to 8.3 percent from August and the national rate fell 0.3 percentage points to 7.8 percent. The number of people in the nation’s labor force rose 418,000, the ranks of the employed people rose 873,000 and the number of people unemployed fell 456,000. The unemployment rate fell in 94 Tennessee counties and rose in only one county. Lincoln (located in Middle Tennessee along the Alabama state line) and Williamson (near Nashville) Counties had the lowest rate at 5.2 percent and Scott County had the state’s highest unemployment rate at 16.1 percent. Scott County is in East Tennessee along the Kentucky state line. Of metropolitan areas, Knox County had the lowest rate at 5.9 percent, followed by Davidson (Nashville) at 6.6 percent, Hamilton County (Chattanooga) at 7.1 percent and Shelby County (Memphis) at 8.5 percent. Unemployment in Davidson and Knox Counties was down 0.8 percentage points, 0.6 percentage points in Hamilton and 0.4 in Shelby County The average length of unemployment in the nation was 39.8 weeks, up from 39.2 weeks the previous month. Counting discouraged workers and those working part-time who want full-time work, the seasonally-adjusted national unemployment rate was 14.7 percent, unchanged from September.

This Weekend: Fall Hog BBQ Fest Who let the dogs out? Selmer celebrates Dogs Day in the Park By Christen Coulon Editor

The McNairy Regional Alliance and the Town of Selmer will be hosting the 2nd Annual Fall Hog BBQ Festival at Dixie Park this Saturday. The all day event will have a little something for everyone, and this year’s event looks to be even better than last year’s. “We have invested more in this year’s event as far as the entertainment,” said Russell Ingle, director of Chamber Programs for the MRA. Ingle said the headliners for this year’s event are B.B. King’s house band, Lisa G & the Flic’s Pic’s. This blues band promises to bring its unique style of music to Selmer and according to the lead singer, Lisa G, they are planning to bring Beale Street to Selmer. Ingle said that he was optimistic about this year’s event and hoped to build on last

year’s crowd of more than 1,000 people. The event will run from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., and will feature food, a car show, music, events for children, rides, a 5K race and a cook-off. “How can you not have a great time,” Ingle said. “We have great music, great food, lots of fun things for the kids.” Ingle said that the MRA was committed to providing fun, family friendly events to help build McNairy County and that this event fit well with their mission. “We want these events to be morale boosters,” Ingle said. “At the heart of this event, the thing that motivated us to want to do this or other events is because they are good for the community.” Part of the proceeds for the event will go to the Carl Perkins center for the prevention of child abuse.

Fighting through a cold, windy day, Dogs Day in the Park held last Saturday at the Selmer City Park brought many pets and their owners to have fun and help a good cause. McNairy County has had an abundance of stray, abused, and neglected animals. Cheryl Dawson of 4 My Pets Grooming has pulled together an event that is dedicated to spaying and neutering dogs and cats of low income families. The overpopulation of dogs and cats has concerned Dawson, and she plans to continue helping to spay and neuter animals with this event annually as well as collecting donations through her business. “This is a great cause for our county, but more so for the animals,” said Dawson. “Just maybe we can slow down the rate of puppies and kittens from being dumped. I have taken time to do this event because I truly care about animals. This is a lot of work, but it is also a way to help.” To qualify, last year’s income will need to be verified along with filling out a low-cost spay form. The cost per cat to be spayed or neutered is $20 and a dog is $35. Single income of $14,000 or less, two-person families making less Staff Photo by Amanda Lowrance than $16,000, and a family of four Katie Moore participates in Dogs Day in the Park last Saturday at the earning $23,000 or less per year are Selmer City Park.

Child sexual abuse: As real as cancer By Amanda Lowrance Feature Writer

The majority of child abuse cases are never reported. While many turn a blind eye toward child abuse, it is illegal to not report suspected child abuse in accordance with Tennessee Law Section 39-15-401. “I have had several people tell me they could not do my job,” said Luke DeLaVergne, Program Director at McNairy County Carl Perkins Center. “The meaning behind this is that many people struggle to hear stories of children who have been abused physically or sexually. I can understand the desire to simply not be exposed to such stories, but I have found that I personally love the feeling of helping children that are crying out for help.” A calculated report from Department of Children’s Services revealed that there have been more than 200 child abuse cases in McNairy County since October 2011. Nearly 80 of these cases required immediate contact with the alleged victim almost always revealing sexual abuse, and the remaining cases were typically drug exposed, physically abused, or neglected. “The reality is that the majority of these are not cases

of parents disciplining their children, but sexual abuse, children in meth homes, and severe cases of neglect and physical abuse,” said DeLaVergne. “To feel that I can help an abused child find healing and hope after having risked everything to disclose the most traumatic, chaotic, and frightening experiences of abuse causes me to feel like I have purpose in the work that I do at the Center.” If you suspect child abuse, report the case to DCS at 1-877-237-0004 or a local police department. No proof is needed and can be reported anonymously. “Child abuse is as much a reality as cancer,” said DeLaVergne. “It is important that the public begin to overcome fears of discussing dangers that our children could face. The more we talk with our children and with others about abuse, the more likely our community will be empowered to take action to recognize and prevent abusive situations from occurring.” The Carl Perkins Center offers training through Stewards of Children to educate churches, social groups, businesses, or friends and families about the reality of child abuse. “I would like to see our community truly adopt the responsibility of creating a community that causes offend-

The Carl Perkins Center offers several programs and services such as Trauma Focused Therapy, Victims Advocacy Groups for sexually abused children, parenting classes, emergency assistance, Christmas sponsorships, and a food, diaper, and clothing pantry, all are offered free to victims and their families.

Dr. Whitten’s prediction: Obama wins electoral vote Romney wins popular vote By Dr. Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Here are my official picks for the Beat the Ph.D contest. I am predicting that Pres. Barack Obama will defeat former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney in the electoral vote by a margin of 290 to 248.

Dr. Whitten predicts Obama will carry... Calif., Colo., Conn., Del., D.C., Hawaii, Ill., Iowa, Maine, Md., Mass., Mich., Minn., Nev., N.H., N.J., N.M., N.Y., Ohio, Ore., Pa., R.I., Vt., Wash. and Wis. Dr. Whitten predicts Romney will carry... Ala., Alaska, Ariz., Ark., Fla., Ga., Idaho, Ind., Ky., La., Miss., Mo., Mont., Neb., N.C., N.D., Okla., S.C., S.D., Tenn., Texas, Utah, Va., W.Va. and Wyo. I am also predicting that Romney will receive 49.8 percent of the popular vote to Obama’s 49.2 percent. If you think you can more accurately predict the outcome of this year’s presidential election, submit your predictions to me. If you win, I will buy your newspapers until the next election. Read below for a complete list of contest rules and entry instructions. Good Luck. You will need it. (Editor’s note: Jeff Whitten’s prediction should in no way be taken as an official endorsement of the Obama Campaign by this publication. The Independent Appeal is and shall remain a truly independent paper. Following our long-standing tradition, we will never endorse any political candidate at any level.)

Election Contest: Can you beat the Ph.D? By Dr. Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

I’ve been told I’m getting too arrogant, that my head has gotten so big I can’t go inside. You can help. Teach me a lesson in humility. Show me I’m not half as smart as I think I am. You can beat the Ph.D. You see, the Ph.D is me. Think you have what it takes to beat the pro? If you can beat me and win this contest, I will pay for your newspaper until the next presidential election.

Rules for Beat the Ph.D. Instructions: 1. Pick the winning presidential candidate. 2. Predict the electoral vote total of the winning candidate. 3. Predict the percentage of the popular vote received by the winning candidate to within one decimal point. Rules 1. The winning entrant must correctly forecast the winner. 2. Whoever gets the closest to the electoral vote total of the winning candidate wins the contest. 3. In the event of a tie, predictions of the percentage of the popular vote of the winning candidate to within one decimal place will serve as the tie breaker. 4. Entries must be submitted before midnight Nov. 5. Results of the contest will be announced in our Nov. 14 issue. 5. Entries may be submitted by email to reporter2@independentappeal.com. 6. Since this contest is called beat the Ph.D. you must also beat my picks to win the contest. 7. One winning entrant, (if there is one) will win a 4-year subscription to the Independent Appeal. 8. Losing entrants can take solace in the fact that they were beaten by the best...me!

Common Sense: Monetizing By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Monetizing is just a fancy word that means a business tries to squeeze every last dime they can out of a customer. It is often said that we have to pay for things that used to be free. The airlines are one of the biggest monetizers. The latest thing is that they are charging parents a fee to sit with their children. Built on this “unbundling” of services, such as food, pillows, blankets and legroom, they have returned to profitability. Big banks, in addition to paying miniscule interest on deposits maintained with them, offset whatever your money earns through monthly account fees, ATM fees, fees for a paper statement, to get copies of checks written or to speak to a live teller. However, community banks, such as mine, rarely do these things. Air is still free, and so is water if you drink it from the tap. However, since we spent about $10 billion on bottled water in 2009, a lot of people are not drinking it for free. Air is even being sold at oxygen bars. Everyone used to get television for free and you still can if you live near enough to a station or have a strong enough antenna. The average person spends $50 to $75 a month on cable or satellite and still has to sit through commercials. Of course, there is no free lunch, and some of the things that people are complaining used to be free, they paid for without realizing it. The airlines included all these services in your fare and you paid for advertising on “free” television every time you bought the product, since the cost of advertising was included in the price. Gas stations that used to check your oil and clean your windshield, add air to your tires and water to your radiator, if needed, now charge for these services, as well as sometimes for the use of their restrooms, though these services were presumably included in the cost of the gas you pumped when they were free. I think one aspect to this complaint is the lack of transparency. In order for markets to work, consumers need to easily access information about what they are getting and the true cost for it. The cable and satellite companies don’t do a very good job at this. I had a personal experience with this issue. After a promotional rate, my cable tripled and I became very unhappy with what I was paying and what I was getting. I did some shopping around with other cable and satellite companies, and getting them to reveal your real long-term costs is like pulling teeth. It’s not just that it is difficult to get information from them, but they sometimes present half-truths that mislead consumers in their commercials. One company I talked to is running commercials saying it’s competitor doubles rates after the promotional period. I found out that this company does the same thing. I brought this up in our conversation. I asked a customer service representative, “Aren’t you doing the same thing you are accusing your competitor of doing in your commercials?” “Yes,” the customer service rep replied. The people getting the promotional price are also being subsidized by everyone who is paying the regular price. A free public education can still be had, though the quality of it depends on where you are and the concept is being eroded by lab, course, activity and extracurricular fees. Though entry to local parks, which I take advantage of when I get a chance, is free, state and the federal government have charged fees to enjoy some parks since the 1980s. If people are so unhappy with these practices, one remedy would be to not do business with any company who engages in them. However, you can’t do that if they all do it and all of the airlines and cable/satellite companies do, with one exception, as far as I know. You could just stop doing business with the entire industry, but in some cases, that is impractical or impossible. A lot of people have stopped doing business with the cable and satellite companies. I did for a while and I may again at the end of football season. You can view a lot of the college games on one website, but they have started to restrict this content to only some cable, satellite and wireless providers. You can watch professional games on one network, but the NFL only offers internet packages for the rest in real time to people overseas. We Americans can only view our national sport on the Internet, other than the Sunday night games, on a one-day delay. This is presumably due to exclusive deals with these providers. Can you say restraint of trade? If people are really so unhappy with many of these practices, you would think entrepreneurs would start businesses and do things differently. Why more haven’t done so is a mystery to me.

Political Fun facts

The strange and unusual side of American politicians - By federal law since 1792, Congress has allowed states to conduct their presidential elections or otherwise choose their electors any time in a 34-day period before the first Wednesday of December, which is the day the electors meet in their state capitals. November was chosen because the harvest was over by then and winter storms had not yet begun. - Traditionally, election day is the first Tuesday after Nov. 2. Tuesday was chosen because before cars, it would take people a long time to travel to the polls. Monday was undesirable because people wouldn’t want to travel on Sunday for religious reasons. They did not want Nov. 1 because it is All Saints Day and because shopkeepers did their books on the first day of the month. - When Franklin D. Roosevelt was bedridden with polio, he asked aid Louie Howe, “Come here, Louie, I want to tell you something.” Howe moved closer, but still not within arms length. Roosevelt told him to come closer and he did. FDR then hit Howe as hard as

he could in the stomach. Howe doubled over in pain. When he recovered he asked, “Boss, why did you do that?” Roosevelt replied, “You think I’m an invalid but I could still take you in any bout.” - Lincoln once told a story about a man who stopped him while he was walking down the street. “Wait, let me get my gun.” “Why?” Lincoln asked. “I swore an oath that if I ever met a man uglier than me, I would shoot him,” the man said. “If I’m uglier than you, then fire away, because I don’t want to live,” Lincoln replied. - In 1886, brothers Alf and Bob Taylor ran against each other for Governor of Tennessee. This campaign was called the “War of the Roses.” Their father was a Whig, with Union sympathies, but their mother was a Democrat who favored the Confederacy. They campaigned together and had 41 debates. Bob once stole Alf’s speech from his hotel room and read it to the crowd. Bob

won by 13,000 votes, but Alf was finally elected in 1921. - James C. “Beat Jimmy” Jones ran against James K. Polk for Governor on the Whig ticket. Jones was a comedian as well as a politician. He was known to pull a coonskin, the symbol of his party, out of his pocket, stroke it with his hand and ask the crowd, “Have you ever seen such a fine fur?” Jones defeated Polk, who would later become President, twice, to his great humiliation. - Calvin Coolidge’s nickname was “Silent Cal.” A woman at a White House party once told him she bet she could get more than two words out of him. “You lose,” he replied. - John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were first friends, then enemies and after they retired, friends again. They both died on the same day, July 4. Adams’ last words were, “Thomas Jefferson still survives.” - A girlfriend of Gerald Ford introduced him to modeling, and both appeared in Look and Cosmopolitan magazines in the early part of the 1940s.

Our Neighbor. Our Friend. Our Next State Senator.

Meryl Rice

Spencer Jerrolds- Hardin Co., Communications specialist “I don’t know what I would have done without the Hope Lottery Scholarship. It helped me to achieve my dream of going into mass communications. That’s why I support Meryl Rice. She supports the Hope Scholarship which makes college more affordable for people like me.”

Garry Carroll - Chester Co, Teacher “I normally vote Republican. But this race means so much for jobs and education in West Tennessee, so I voted to send Meryl Rice to Nashville. Four years with an absentee senator was enough.”

John Talbott- Chester Co., attorney “I am a lifelong Republican, but this election I am supporting Meryl Rice because party labels don’t matter when it comes to the people of this district having a voice in Nashville. The incumbent is unresponsive to the needs of her constituents. Meryl Rice will listen and lead.”

Meryl Rice is pro-life, pro-gun rights, and pro-small business, but that’s not all. She’ll use common sense to promote what matters: putting Tennesseans back to work, strengthening our schools, and building a stronger middle class. Meryl has engaged both Republicans and Democrats in her run for state senate because she believes we are all in this together. She cares deeply about our communities and is proud to have received endorsements from both individuals and organizations that represent everyday folks.

Meryl Rice has been endorsed by: Tennessee Education Association - “Meryl Rice won the support of teachers in her district and statewide based on her support of public education issues. She recognizes that the state’s future depends on strong public schools, and her record merits the support of the education community, parents, and all others interested in the future of public education in Tennessee. Public schools have a friend in Meryl Rice.” Hardeman County Education Association

Marilyn K. Bartling- Hardeman Co., Member, National Association of Realtors and Tennessee Association of Realtors- “I believe that Meryl Rice has the people’s interest at heart. She will focus on keeping jobs here and on education and training which will bring more jobs and result in economic growth for our district.”

Dr. Martha Glover – McNairy Co., retired high school principal – “Our tax dollars should not be taken out of our public schools to make private out-of-state corporations rich at the expense of our children’s education. Meryl will fight to keep public funds in public schools.”

Fayette County Education Association Decatur County Education Association McNairy County Education Association

Myles Wilson, Fayette Co., former Supt. of Education- “I support Meryl Rice because she supports public education. She understands the business of the state is to provide a free public education to every child. Our communities prosper when we invest in public education and thereby invest in the future of our children.”

Hardin County Education Association Chester County Education Association Haywood County Education Association Henderson County Education Association Memphis Education Association Tennessee State Employees Association - “We are pleased to endorse Meryl Rice’s campaign. She has been a lifelong advocate for those in need and she always puts people first. She appreciates state employees, understands their issues and concerns, and knows how important the services they provide are to the citizens of this state. We proudly support Meryl Rice, and look forward to working with her in the future.”

Mike McWherter, Owner, Central Distributors, Jackson“Meryl Rice has dedicated her life and career to helping those in need. Her background in healthcare services will be a major asset in facing the challenges that people of our state will face in the future. As an advocate for public education and job growth, her common sense voice is one which will be needed to ensure the opportunities for all ages of Tennesseans to earn a fair living wage. I am supporting her and hope that you will as well.”

Toney Campbell-Decatur Co., retired construction trades, farmer “I have been friends with Meryl and her husband for a number of years. I know Meryl to be a good and decent person who goes out of her way to help. That’s the kind of person we need in the state senate.”

Steamfitters Local 614, Memphis - “Mrs. Rice’s position for working middle class families is in line with our Tennessee values. Her focus on education is exemplary of the type of leadership needed in our State Senate. Her vision for the future includes the interests of all the citizens of the state of Tennessee”.

State Representative Johnny Shaw – Hardeman Co., small business owner and pastor “I think Meryl Rice is the right choice for the 26th senatorial district. She is the right choice for the economy and the right choice for our civil rights.”

International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Tennessee AFL-CIO Labor Council The Jackson Sun Newspaper - “We appreciate the uphill challenge she (Rice) faces in running against a strong Republican incumbent. But we have to agree with her that Gresham’s unresponsiveness and positions on education are issues that bring into question her commitment to her rural West Tennessee constituents. When it comes to political office, accountability matters. We believe it is time to give Rice the opportunity to serve.”

VOTE

John Duckworth- Haywood Co. , retired supervisor Caterpillar Tractor Co., “Meryl Rice has my support because I know she will not forget the people of her district. I know her to be someone who is easy to talk to, accessible, and responsive. With Meryl, all of us will have a friend in the state senate.”

Meryl Rice November 6 Early Voting Until November 1

Wesley Woods, Henderson Co., 911 Dispatcher, Baptist minister – “I take my political views seriously as we all should. I believe it is in our district’s best interest to elect Meryl Rice to the state senate.”

Please join our Election Night Celebration at the McNairy County Democratic Party Headquarters, 136 W. Court Avenue, Selmer on November 6 after polls close. Paid for by Meryl Rice for State Senate, Randall Rice, Treasurer.

It took the Bobcat offense a while to get a consistent drive moving against the championshipcaliber defense shown by the Tigers. The Bobcats worked hard trying to establish the running game, and Jarrett Mood again led the way accumulating more than 70 yards on the ground. The Bobcats’ offense was showing a few

new looks that had not been seen previously this season. It may have been a small preview as to what the Bobcats might look like next season. While it was hard for the offense to maintain a drive and stay on the field, it was hard for the defense to get off the field. Lexington kept finding a way to make the first down and drove down the field to score their first touchdown with just over six minutes left to play in the first quarter. It was all Lexington from then on as the Tigers found the end zone once more in the first quarter. The second quarter was much of the same. After a little bit of back and forth and a long sustained drive by the Tigers, Lexington found the

Adamsville bowlers primed for another successful season By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer

For the Adamsville Cardinal Bowling Team, the 20112012 season was full of successes for the girls and some disappointments for the boys. This year, both look to improve upon the previous season’s results. While the boys struggled through the majority of last year, finishing with a 2-6 record after being forced to bowl short-handed for the last leg of the season, they return to the lanes with a little more experience and confidence under their belts. “Our boys are going to be competitive, but I don’t know how far we’ll go,” said head bowling coach Jason Carman. “They’re going to struggle a little bit because most of them are new and just haven’t bowled a whole lot.” Despite their youthfulness, Carman expects a good year out of his boys. The girls, on the other hand, experienced their fair share of success last year. They finished the regular season 6-2 and defeated Brighton in the Region 7 Tournament before falling to the eventual state champion Hardin County Lady Tigers in the region finals. They went on to face Collierville in a substate match, but the girls failed to advance to the state tournament as a team after a loss to the Lady Dragons. “I expect great things out of them,” Carman said. “We have several (bowlers) returning from last year’s team, and they seem to be pretty strong...They have a great chance to make it to state, if not win state.” Now a senior and anchor of the strong Lady Cardinal

Bowling Team, Amron Forsythe, who was named Region 7 Co-Bowler of the Year in 2011, was the lone Adamsville bowler to advance to the state tournament as an individual last year. She finished first among Class A bowlers and 15th overall at state. Forsythe, like the rest of the Lady Cardinals, is determined to make it back to state, but this time around, she hopes they are traveling to state as a team. “I’ve worked all these years to get myself there,” said Forsythe, “and if all my girls could get there, too, it would be a phenomenal way to end my high school bowling career.” Following the retirement of long-time AHS bowling coach Ronnie Christopher, Forsythe’s father, Jack Forsythe, will be along for the ride during the season, assuming the role of the girls’ coach as they attempt to strike and spare their way to a state championship.

Lady Cards dominate first match The Lady Cardinals got their 2012-2013 season started off on the right foot with a big win over the Dyer County Lady Choctaws last Wednesday, but the boys were not so lucky. Adamsville’s girls destroyed Dyer County 26-1 while the boys fell 19.5-7.5. Each Lady Cardinal bowler set the tone for the season in the first match by finishing with scores higher than their individual averages. Forsythe led the way with a 576 series in three games and a high game of 237. Emily Surratt had a 498 series with a high

“‘A man’s word is his bond...’ Those were the famous words of my grandfather, James Nabors,” said Mary Greer. “He taught our family that even though you may not have money; your word should be strong enough to bond any agreement.” Ms. Mary Nabors Greer has been the guidance counselor/assistant principal at Michie School for as long as most of the students and parents can remember. Greer has taught special education, kindergarten, and all other grades during her 39 years of service in the field of education.

He and Issac Lynn were the only two Adamsville bowlers to finish with two wins in the match. Lynn finished with a series total of 401 and a high game of 146.

Citizenship, Fairness, Respect, Responsibility and Trustworthiness, which brings us back to the topic of this article... Greer challenged the Michie’s junior high football team, in order to improve on a lack luster season the year before, to win three games in a row, and she would allow them to cut her hair. This challenge set the football team to the task. Her motive was to encourage the ball team and it worked. The team won three games in a row, and now as stated above, “A man’s word is his bond,” and in this case, a woman’s words are her bond. Greer relinquished her locks last Thursday. Mrs. Greer had grown her hair in locks for the past six years. These locks are difficult to attain and often a lifetime decision. She is very proud of this

This is an ultimate act of trustworthiness. Although she has been discouraged by many adults and colleagues for her commitment to the football team and told point blank to not cut her hair, Greer feels she must remain true to her words.

Crowe comes out on top after seven-way tie By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer

Seven pickers topped the coaches in this week’s installment of Top O’ The River’s 2012 Beat the Coaches: College Football Pick’em. Michael Crowe of Selmer, Lane Dimmick of Michie, Larry and Heather Doles of Ramer, Renee Hembree and Darryl Weatherford of Bethel Springs, and Martha Williams finished week nine 4-1, beating the coaches for a chance at the prize. With seven contestants tied, the point total tiebreaker was put into effect. For the first time in our contest’s history, one tiebreaker was not enough. Crowe and Weatherford both predicted that Mississippi State and Alabama would combine for 47 points in our game of the week. The Tide rolled over the Bulldogs 38-7, leaving Crowe and Weatherford just two points off the actual point total. When contestants are still tied following the first tiebreaker, it all comes down to who was closer to predicting the winning team’s point total in the game of the week. Turning in a tie-breaking score of 34-14 in favor of Alabama, Crowe was awarded the week’s prize. Weatherford predicted Bama would win 27-20. Coaches Michael Stroup and Rennard Woodmore remained tied for the lead amongst the coaches after week nine as both finished 3-2. Both had Florida beating Georgia, but the Bulldogs pulled out a 17-9 upset over the Gators. Stroup went with underdog MSU over Alabama, and Woodmore missed on Notre Dame’s impressive 30-13 win at Oklahoma. Coaches Brandon Alldredge and Brandon Gray finished the week 2-3

and remain tied for third place. Both took a miss when North Carolina outlasted North Carolina State 43-35 in the in-state/in-conference rivalry game, and only a few pickers were bold enough to go out on a limb to take Tennessee in its heartbreaking 38-35 loss to South Carolina. Houdini, once again, was saddled with a record that did not allow him to jump into third place alone. Like Alldredge and Gray, the horse finished 2-3, missing on NC State, Florida, MSU. This week, he is taking No. 24 Oklahoma State over the No. 2 Kansas State Wildcats, he likes No. 23 Texas to upset the visiting, No. 18 Texas Tech Red Raiders, and he picked No. 15 Mississippi State to win at home over No. 16 Texas A&M. He’s also going with another upset, predicting that No. 17 Southern California will beat No. 4 Oregon. In our game of the week, Houdini picked against the odds, once again, and took No. 5 LSU to win at home over the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide. It all seemed crazy to me. See for yourself by visiting our Youtube page to watch Houdini make his picks for week 10. Wanna play along? Beat the coaches for a chance to win a delicious seafood meal courtesy of our friends down at Top O’ The River on Highway 57 in Michie by submitting your picks at our office in Selmer by 5 p.m. on Friday.

Texas Motor Speedway will host the AAA Texas 500 this Sunday. World Series After staving off elimination early on in the playoffs, the San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers 4-0 in the World Series to win the team’s seventh world championship. The Giants won Game 1 8-3, Game 2 2-0, Game 3 2-0, and Game 4 4-3 in extra innings. Giant third baseman Pablo Sandoval was named the World Series Most Valuable Player after finishing the series with a .500 average. He also homered three times in Game 1, becoming only the third player in World Series history to accomplish the feat. Reggie Jackson did it once, and Babe Ruth did it twice. The Tigers, as a team, did not perform well in the series, hitting for a meager .159 average on the way to being swept. Luck Good in Overtime, Titans fall to Colts Failing to win their third game in a row, the Tennessee Titans were beaten 19-13 in overtime by Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday at LP Field. The Titans held a 10-3 lead at halftime, but the Colts raced back into contention, outscoring Tennessee 10-3 in the second half before Luck hooked up with his fellow rookie Vick Ballard for his only touchdown pass of the game just minutes into overtime. The Titans (3-5, 0-2) will have their work cut out for them this Sunday when they host former Vanderbilt Commodore Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears (6-1, 1-1). Vols Still Winless in Conference Play Despite Tyler Bray’s four touchdown passes and a season-ending knee injury to South Carolina’s Heisman hopeful Marcus Lattimore, the Tennessee Volunteers fell to the Gamecocks 38-35 at home last Saturday. The Vols trailed 2814 at halftime but rallied in the second half before coming up short in their sixth consecutive SEC loss. Their last conference win came against Vanderbilt on Nov. 19, 2011. Tennessee (3-5, 0-5) will host the Troy Trojans (4-4, 3-3) this Saturday at Neyland Stadium.

Cardinals await winner of Mt. Pleasant, Forrest game By Andrew Alexander

Middle Tennessee Christian, Huntland and Cascade. Forrest’s opponents combined for an overall record of 46-54. Apart from Collinwood, Mt. Pleasant had wins over Spring Hill, Wayne County, Cornersville, Richland and Perry County, but the Tigers suffered losses to Cascade, Cheatham County, Columbia Academy and Loretto. Mt. Pleasant’s opponents combined for an overall record of 4753. Loretto, which finished as the top 2A team in Region 6-A, earned the No. 2 seed in Quad 3, and the team awaits the winner of Houston County and White-House Heritage. Adamsville lost its season-opener against Chester County on Aug. 17. Since then, the Cardinals have rolled off nine wins in a row by an average of nearly 25 points. Since 2009, the Cards are 21-3 at Lendon Martin Memorial Stadium. If they continue their winning ways, the team will host all of its playoff games until the state championship, unless they meet the Quad 4 No. 1 Dresden Lions in the semifinals. Since both teams are the top seeds in their respective quadrants, the bottom team on the bracket will play host during even years. The Lions won 35-19 at Adamsville in the semifinals last year. Adamsville’s bye came in week 10, leaving the Cards to wait for 20 days between their win over McKenzie on Oct. 19 and when they host their second round playoff game against the Rockets or Tigers on Nov. 9. Needless to say, Red Rage will be ready and rearing to go no matter which team comes out victorious in Mt. Pleasant Friday night.

Sports Writer

After finishing the regular season 9-1 and taking the District 15-A championship, the Adamsville Cardinals will play the waiting game instead of football this Friday. Earning a bye in the first round of the Class 2A state playoffs for the second consecutive season, Adamsville is the top seed in Quad 3 and awaits the winner of first round opponents Mt. Pleasant and Forrest. Mt. Pleasant was the Region 6-A runner-up for 2A teams with a 5-2 record in league play and a 6-4 record overall. The No. 4-seeded Tigers come into the playoffs averaging just shy of 40 points per game. The Forrest Rockets, of Chapel Hill, Tenn., were the District 9-A third-place finishers behind Moore County and Eagleville, each of which earned spots in the Class 1A state playoffs, leaving 2A playoff spots open for Forrest and a familiar Adamsville playoff foe, Cascade. The Rockets finished the regular season 6-4 overall and 4-2 in league play. Adamsville, Forrest and Mt. Pleasant all share one common opponent this season – the Collinwood Trojans. The Rockets lost 40-34 on Collinwood’s home turf way back in August, and the Tigers defeated Collinwood 51-18 at home in late September. Adamsville beat Collinwood 29-6 one week before Mt. Pleasant topped the Trojans. Apart from Collinwood, Forrest also suffered losses to Moore County, White-House Heritage and Eagleville, but the Rockets picked up wins over Perry County, Community, Cornersville,

CITY OF RAMER

Early Notice and Public Review of a Proposed Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain To: All interested Agencies - Federal, State, and Local - Groups and Individuals This is to give notice that McNairy County under CFR 24 Part 58 has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Order 11988 and/or 11990, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management, to determine the potential affect that its activity in the floodplain and wetland will have on the human environment for a Community Development Block Grant. McNairy County will install a new Mechanically Cleaned Screening System, also referred to as a “solids removal device” at the Palmer Street Pump Station. A portion of this project may be completed in a 100 year flood plain. The proposed project(s) is located within the City limits of Adamsville, McNairy County, Tennessee. There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information about floodplains can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.

Lead by Norvante Holt’s three rushing touchdowns, the Tigers defeated the Big Orange 32-0. Tucker Gray contributed to the Tigers cause with two touchdown runs of his own. The Tiger offense exploded out of the gate as they scored on all three of their first half possessions. Gray started off the Tigers’ scoring with a 20-yard run. Holt added touchdown runs covering 65 and 18 yards respectively. Jayden Loving converted on a two-point conversion kick as the Tigers built a 20-0 halftime lead. The Tigers picked up where they left off as they scored on their first possession of the second half on Holt’s 85-yard run. Gray finished off the scoring with a touchdown run covering 10 yards. Drew Yopp recovered a fumble for the Big Orange.

The Blue Bears jumped out to a

12-0 lead at halftime and were able to hold back the Redskins in the second half for the 12-8 victory. Following an exchange of punts, the Blue Bears went 43 yards in four plays with Hunter Mccullar’s run covering the final 13 yards. McCullar set up the touchdown run on the previous play with a 27-yard carry. After pinning the Redskins back on their own 1-yard line and forcing a punt, the Blue Bears set up shop on the Redskin 23-yard line. It took just two plays for the Blue Bears to record their second touchdown of night, as McCullar went in from 10 yards out giving the Blue Bears a 12-0 halftime lead. The Redskins received the second half kickoff and went on a 52yard drive, but they turned it over on downs inside the Blue Bear 30-yard line. Big plays on the drive were a 27-yard carry by Omari Robinson followed by a 19-yard run by Braden Kirk. The Redskins were able to get the ball back on a fumble recovery by Kirk. Two plays later, the Blue Bear defense returned the favor as Lee Damron pounced on a Redskin

end zone again; this time with just under five minutes left to play before halftime. With the Bobcats struggling on offense the Tigers quickly forced a three-and-out and were able to return the following punt for another Tiger touchdown just two minutes later. The Tigers later recovered a Bobcat fumble and kicked a field goal as time expired to take a 30-0 lead at halftime. The Bobcats came out of the half determined to get on the scoreboard. Unfortunately, the Tigers were too. Strong defense and a powerful running game got the Tigers into the end zone for the last time with just over seven min-

fumble. The Redskin defense forced the Blue Bears to punt, and late in the fourth quarter, the Redskins had it first-and-10 on their own 18-yard line. Kirk ran it for 14 yards, and then on the very next play, quarterback Tanner Parmley hooked up with Robinson for a 68-yard touchdown pass. Zach Sheffield added the twopoint conversion kick as the Redskins found themselves trailing by only four points, 12-8. The Blue Bears started their next possession on their own 34-yard line with a little more than two minutes remaining in the game and two timeouts remaining for the Redskins. The Blue Bear offense was able to convert on two big third down plays and run out the clock to end the game.

They kept playing and kept giving the effort all the way until the final play when, with ten seconds left in the game, Jarrett Mood broke past the defense and put McNairy Central on the scoreboard before time ran out. Coach Dampeer said his Bobcats (2-8, 2-5) need to learn from this season and get in the weight room and keep getting better. The team will have a lot of experience coming back next year, and they hope to turn their luck around in the future. The Tigers (9-1, 7-0) earned a No. 1 seed in Quad 3 of the Class 4A state playoffs and will host District 14AA counterpart Jackson South Side (4-6, 4-3), which squeaked into the playoffs with a win over Jackson Central-Merry last Friday.

Farming is a calling and a dangerous one at that. Every year an average of 62 good men and women working on farms are electrocuted when farm machines touch overhead power lines. If equipment gets hung up on a power line, don’t get off of the machine unless there’s fire or other immediate danger. If you touch the ground and the equipment at the same time, you can become a deadly channel for electricity. If you must get off the equipment, jump clear of the vehicle and keep your feet close together, hop away. Call Pickwick Electric Cooperative to report the problem at 731-645-3411. Don’t touch any machine connected to a power line and keep others away until PEC personnel disconnects the line.

S.E.S. announces September Students of the Month Submitted Report Contributor

Selmer Elementary School and Mrs. Jennifer Taylor with Project BASIC are pleased to announce the outstanding Students of the Month for September. Each month, one student is selected from each classroom for exhibiting outstanding character from one of the pillars of character and following the I CARE Rules

which are ongoing themes in their guidance classes and Project BASIC classes throughout the year. During September students learned about being “responsible” and practiced what they learned. Being “responsible” takes hard work and deserves recognition. Each of these students was awarded a special Certificate of Achievement and a special treat from McDonalds. Congratulations to each of these “Responsible Students” at Selmer Elementary School.

Red Ribbon/Character Counts Week at Adamsville Elementary By Diane Dierks Contributor

Adamsville Elementary School will celebrate Red Ribbon/Character Counts week on Oct. 29 – Nov. 2. To kick off the week, students have completed an art activity and watched an informative video to educate the students on the harmful effects of drugs, alcohol, beer, tobacco, and other substance abuse. Students were also educated about the harmful effects of bullying and unkind or disrespectful behaviors. Every day this week will have a Red Ribbon/ Character Counts theme. Students may dress according to the day’s theme. Monday, Oct. 29 – “Angry Birds Knock Out Drugs!” Students may wear their Angry Bird character counts shirts or the color that represents their grades. (Pre-K – gray, Kindergarten- orange, 1st – light blue, 2nd- yellow, 3rd – dark green,

Apostolic:

4th – red, 5th – sapphire blue, 6th- lime green). Tuesday, Oct. 30 – (Lounge Day) “Don’t Day Dream about Drugs, Alcohol, Tobacco, or Unhealthy Behaviors!” Students may wear flannel pants or appropriate lounge pants with a t-shirt or sweatshirt. (House shoes are NOT permitted.) Wednesday, Oct. 31 – (Cowboy/Cowgirl Day) “Round ‘Em Up and Choose to Stay Away from Poisons, Drugs, and Bullies!” Students may dress up accordingly but are NOT allowed to wear hats. Thursday, Nov. 1 – (Camo/Black-out Day) “Black Out Drugs! Don’t Let Drugs and Alcohol Camouflage Your Life!” Students may wear camouflage or all black. Friday, Nov. 2 – (Cardinal Crazy Day) “Cardinals Are Crazy about Good Choices and Good Character!” Students may wear Cardinal shirts or colors. It is important that students abide by the school dress code. Appropriate shirts, pants, skirts, shoes, etc. must be

worn. No hats are permitted. This week is also dedicated to better educate students about healthy choices versus unhealthy choices. Healthy choices include such decisions as nutritious foods, exercise, good character, and friendship skills. Unhealthy choices include unhealthy foods, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, bullying, and not exercising good character. Earlier this year, A.E.S. has adopted the 5210 Nutrition and Fitness Program. The basic program is as follows: 5fruits and vegetables a day; 2- less than 2 hours of screen time per day; 1- one or more hours of daily physical activity; 0- sugary drinks. To enhance the education lessons that have already been implemented in academic and specialty classes, we will emphasize positive activities to correlate with areas such as visual arts, sports, and academics. Our goal is to help students make good decisions to help them live happy, healthy lives.

October is SIDS Awareness Month   October is SIDS Awareness Month in the United States. SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, occurs when an infant dies without explanation. In 2010, eight infants in Tennessee died of SIDS. While cases of SIDS in Tennessee have declined over the past decade, other sleep-related deaths are on the rise. SIDS is just one type of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death. Other causes can include sleep-related deaths such as suffocation or strangulation, infection or child abuse/neglect. Tennessee Department of Health data show there were 131 sleeprelated deaths due to suffocation and strangulation in Tennessee in 2010, accounting for 20 percent of all infant deaths that year. “These sleep-related deaths are entirely preventable and contribute significantly to our state’s infant mortality rate, which is higher than the national average,” said Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH. “Tennessee’s infant mortality rate in 2011 decreased to 7.4 deaths for every 1,000 live births. While we celebrate our continued progress in reducing infant mortality, we mourn the lives of the 587 infants who did not live to see their first birthday. We can, and we must, do better.”

  To help address all sleeprelated infant deaths, TDH recently launched a Safe Sleep campaign focusing on the “ABCs of Safe Sleep.” This campaign urges all caregivers to focus on easy steps to help keep infants safe. “Infants should sleep Alone, on their Backs and in a Crib,” said Michael Warren, MD, TDH director of Family Health and Wellness. “Our Tennessee data show us that in 82 percent of these sleep-related deaths, the infant was found not sleeping in a crib or bassinette. In nearly 60 percent of cases, the infant was sleeping with another person. Taking a few moments to remember the ‘ABCs of Safe Sleep’ can help save a life.” Parents and other caregivers can remember these key steps to reduce the likelihood of SIDS and other sleep-related infant deaths:

• Always place babies on their backs to sleep, every time. • Sharing a room with your baby is okay, but sharing a bed is dangerous. Babies should sleep alone in their own crib or bassinette. • Use a firm mattress with a tight-fitting sheet in the baby’s crib. Keep stuffed animals, blankets, pillows, bumper pads and toys out of the crib. • Do not smoke during pregnancy or after your baby is born. • Be sure that all those who are caring for the baby know about safe sleep practices.
