Stand-off ends quietly Man finishes beer, unloads gun, surrenders to police

Chess is associated with a 17.3% increase in school test scores.

By Christen Coulon Editor

A distraught 47-year old man with a handgun held Selmer police at bay while threatening suicide last Friday night, forcing the closure of some roads in Northern Selmer for several hours. The incident began when the man, who we will call John Doe due to the nature of this case, called the Quinco Crisis Center stating that he was planning on killing himself. Selmer Police were notified of the situation and responded to a field near a New Bethel Road residence where they heard a shot being fired at a close distance to their location. Cpl. Bob Pipkins obtained the name and phone number of Doe and contacted him to assess the situation. Doe told Pipkins that he was armed with a .22 caliber weapon and that he had nothing to live for. “If anyone tried to rush him or slip up on him (he said)...he would either shoot himself or force a police officer to shoot him,” Pipkins said in his offense report. Pipkins said that he talked with the sus-

pect several times trying to get him to put down his weapon before the man finally agreed to meet Pipkins at the old Piggly Wiggly store in North Selmer. Pipkins made contact with Doe across a creek at Sweat’s Trailer Park and said that he continued to speak with the man and made face to face contact with him as he continued to threaten suicide. At that time, Doe asked Pipkins for beer and cigarettes. When Pipkins refused his request for beer the man walked into a field and out of sight of officers. SPD officials then set up a perimeter around that location to protect the public before learning the man was in the parking lot of the laundry mat at the North Y. Pipkins then made contact with Doe again at the laundry mat and attempted to defuse the situation asking the man to put down his weapon. The man refused and again asked for beer and cigarettes. The man also requested to speak to his wife at that location. At this time, Pipkins said that he could see that the suspect was pointing a chrome plated .22 caliber Derringer Pistol at his own

head with the hammer of the weapon clearly cocked back. Pipkins tossed the man a pack of cigarettes at the laundry mat but refused his request for a beer. The man then began walking toward the direction of the courthouse with the gun pointed at his head and officer Pipkins trailing him at a distance of 6-10 feet. “(He said) if we got him a beer, he would walk to the courthouse, and sit down and talk,” Pipkins said. At this point, in order to save the man’s life, the Selmer PD finally relented on the man’s request for a beer and spoke with Doe at the courthouse on a bench. With Pipkins and Lt. Tony Miller listening nearby, Doe then reportedly discussed several personal problems he was facing in his life, finished his beer, unloaded his weapon and surrendered to police without further incident. Doe was transported to McNairy Regional Hospital for evaluation and then to Western State Mental Hospital. Neither Doe nor any Selmer officers were injured during the incident.

Local schools get report card By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Director of Schools Charlie Miskelly characterized the report card for McNairy County schools issued by the state as good. “It was good. It showed some progress. We have tried to take steps to improve,” Miskelly said. The highlight of the report card is that schools improved over last year’s performance in grades three through eight in each subject area, Assistant Director of Schools and Director of Instruction Dr. Brian Jackson said. Not only was there improvement but McNairy County seniors exceeded state standards for growth in scores, Jackson said. The school system is in good standing. The state has restructured its requirements and no longer designates some schools as target schools, Jackson explained. The only way schools are singled out is if they are

in the top five percent in the state and are designated as Reward Schools, as Selmer Middle School, Michie Elementary School and Ramer Elementary School were. Selmer Elementary has been identified as a focus school due to gaps in test scores among demographic groups. “When we have those gaps, it means that we have students that are not moving at the same pace as other students. It’s like you have to get a quick-step or double step to get those students caught up. When they’re making progress, that means we’re closing that gap that exists. I think the key thing is we were able to see that in most cases, we were closing that achievement gap. That speaks well of what our students and teachers were able to accomplish,” Jackson said. Jackson pointed out that, unlike some other states, in Tennessee, ev-

Fun in the sun: Fall Hog BBQ Fest

MCHS places 5th, earns superior ratings PAGE 6B

By Amanda Lowrance Feature Writer

Selmer Dixie Park flooded with people last Saturday for the 2nd Annual Fall Hog BBQ Festival. “The weather was perfect, the music was fun and the food was divine,” said food contest judge, Lara Laurence. “Judging was harder than I imagined. Every entry was unique and wonderful in its own way.” The event brought many local participants to promote the region’s best food. Team Heavenly Manna was crowned the title of Fall Hog Grand Champion and was awarded a trophy on behalf of McNairy Regional Alliance. “Of the four categories my favorite was cobblers,” said Laurence. “Two stand out the most; first a blueberry cobbler with a thick crust similar to a sugar cookie and the second an actual apple (peel and all) topped with an oatmeal mix. My taste buds were in heaven.” Awarding the Top 75 and Best of Show Awards for the Car Show, the number of participants was astounding. There were a reported 120 entries and from 52 cities according to event coordinators, Aubrey and Melanie King. Overall the event was fun for all including music from BB King’s House Band, Lisa G & The Flic’s Pic’s, and Rhythm Kitchen. “I had a great time with my fellow judges and enjoyed the music a lot,” said Laurence. “I feel bad for the people who didn’t make it out to the Dixie Park Saturday because the rest of us had a blast.”

CARD McNairy music goes Hollywood REPORT FROM PAGE 1A By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Arts in McNairy is shooting a new documentary on McNairy music history, according to Dr. Shawn Pitts, AiM Heritage and Culture Committee chair. “This project is funded by the Library of Congress to further document some of the musical heritage, especially the Stanton Littlejohn recordings,” Pitts said. Partial funding was also obtained from the Tennessee Arts Commission. The film is being shot by Jared Walters. “He’s doing the filming for us, but in the end we will edit it down into a short film, which will talk about the Stanton Littlejohn recordings, the history and music jams at the Latta Building, the words of a lot of those people who participated,” Pitts said. The as yet unnamed film will run about 15 minutes in its final form, Pitts said. Interviews for the film began on Oct. 12. Included in the first round of interviews are Marjorie Richard,, who is the daughter of Stanton Littlejohn, Art Crotts, the son of Don Crotts, one of the fiddle players in the Littlejohn recordings and Latta jam sessions, Bo English, Wayne Jerrolds, who is one of the better-known fiddle players in the area and a disciple of the Littlejohn musicians and who played at the Latta Building and County Historian Bill Wagoner, who is very knowledgeable about these matters. The second round of interviews will be next spring. “We’ll do a second round of interviews with folks who are knowledgeable about these things,” Pitts said. Editing on the film will begin next spring and Pitts expects the film to be completed by this time next year. The premier of the film will be at the Latta Building, Pitts said. “Once the film is done, we will debut the film at the Latta Building and probably play a little live music at the same time,” Pitts said. It will also be part of the collection that AiM is compiling for the Library of Congress, Pitts said. Some of the media and recordings will be available to listen to on their web site. They may also be available for purchase on DVD. “We’re also planning on doing a release of the ‘best of’ the Littlejohn collection on CD for people who would like to listen to that material so we may be able to package them so you can buy a CD and a DVD which details some of the history of it. It would be a good way for us to raise funds as well as get it out there and make it available,” Pitts said. AiM plans to distribute this product in-house, Pitts said. “From a very personal perspective, that it’s been a great pleasure for us to be involved in this process. This is an incredible resource, that’s been compiled by the Richard family, that pays homage to the Littlejohn family, their musical legacy and preservation efforts. It’s good to hear some of them tell those stories about the recordings and some of their recollections of some of the musicians who played in those recordings has just been a tremendous experience. It’s been very eye-opening as well as very revealing about how deep and rich the music heritage is here, so from a personal view, I’ve enjoyed it. It’s been the most interesting thing I’ve done lately,” Pitts concluded. The Littlejohn recordings were made at the studio of Stanton Littlejohn in Eastview between 1946 and 1953, and include some of the earliest recordings made by Carl Perkins, as well as other local and regional musicians.

ery high school junior takes the ACT test. “In the past, we were looking at a small group of students taking that test. Now, we’re looking at everyone, so those scores reflect what everyone is doing. We want to work on bringing those up to higher levels,” Jackson said. Jackson said the system must move toward the Common Core standards that are coming. Testing in the next two years will be based upon these new standards. “We’re doing more testing in anticipation of those changes. We have to do well in what we have been doing but we also have to be preparing for what’s ahead,” Jackson said. These new standards will bring two key changes, Jackson said. In mathematics, it will mean a shift away from computation to mathematical reasoning and a shift in form away

from multiple choice questions to open-ended questions where students will be required to show their work. The new standards will bring more complexity to reading and language arts. The texts they will be reading will be more complex, but students will be expected to write at a higher level, Jackson said. The reasoning behind these changes is to help students compete in a global economy, Jackson said. “We want students well-equipped and best-prepared to meet those demands they’re going to face when they get older and are in the world of work,” Jackson said. Jackson said that some of the problem areas in the report will be addressed by additional training for teachers. Some of this training will be provided locally and some by the state. “As much as we can, we are participating in that training with the resources we have available,” Jackson said. This training should make teachers as knowledgeable and equipped as possible in order to work with students, Jackson said.

How I became a storm spotter Part 2: When severe weather strikes By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

In my first article on the storm spotter class held in Selmer last September, I told you what storm spotters are, what they do and why they are necessary. In this second part in the series, I talk about severe weather and what to do when it strikes. McNairy County is under a severe thunderstorm watch for about 12 days a year and about 10 days for a tornado watch. When a severe thunderstorm or tornado watch is issued, it means that conditions are favorable for a severe thunderstorm or a tornado to develop. They last 6-9 hours and cover a large geographical area. Continue normal activities, but monitor the situation in case a warning is issued. “About three weeks out of the year, you can expect to have severe weather roll through,” said National Weather Service forecaster Jim Branda, who conducted the class. The most well-known threat from severe thunderstorms is the threat of tornadoes. The traditional tornado alley runs from Texas through Nebraska and Iowa.. “Here in the Mid-South, we have more killer tornadoes,” Branda said. Branda explained the three reasons for this. We have a high water table, so a lot of homes are not built with basements. We also have a lot of families that live in mobile homes, which are susceptible to damage from a tornado. Finally, nearly half of tornadoes occur at night when people are sleeping and do not get the warning. Reports from trained spotters often have more impact than a warning based on rotation seen on Doppler radar, Branda said. “I can be sitting at the computer and seeing some rotation happening and I can issue a tornado warning and just say that Doppler radar has indicated a tornado, and let’s say for tonight, it’s five miles south of Selmer, Tenn. Now what might you do? ‘Well, you know what, since it said Doppler radar, I’m going to go outside and I’m going to take a look and see what’s happening out of curiosity, and we all have that. If I get a report from one of you that says there’s a tornado on the ground doing damage five miles southwest of Selmer, you’re probably not going to go outside and take a look. You’re probably going to grab your family, your pets, whatever, and go to your shelter immediately and tornadoes can move very fast, so seconds are very precious,” Branda said. Branda offered advice on what to do in the event of a tornado under various circumstances. If you are in your car, do not take shelter under an overpass. “As soon as you get up above ground level, the winds in a tornado are stronger and then underneath an overpass, you’ve got winds that funnel on through, just like winds going through a mountain pass and they’ll be a lot stronger. The best thing you can do is either get out and go into some sort of substantial structure or lay flat in a ditch or ravine if it’s not flooded,” Branda said. “If you are inside your house and do not have a basement or tornado shelter to go to, go to the lowest interior room in the building and stay away from windows and exterior walls. You want put as many walls as possible between you and the tornado itself,” Branda advised. “If you are in a mobile home, I cannot stress enough... have some alternate source of shelter, maybe a neighbor or a family member down the street, but you need to get out because it only takes a strong tornado to demolish a mobile home,” Branda told the audience. Tornadoes are not the only threat posed by severe thun-

Deadly tornados can strike this region year round and often times will come with little warning, illustrating the need for local storm spotters. derstorms. Flash floods, lightning, hail and straight line winds may also accompany these storms. A flash flood usually occurs within six hours of heavy or excessive rainfall. They are the top cause of deaths associated with thunderstorms. Floods kill about 140 Americans each year, which is more than tornadoes and hurricanes combined. The death toll caused by hurricanes and tornadoes are falling, but the death toll caused by floods and flash floods are rising. “Our motto here at the National Weather Service is ‘turn around, don’t drown,’ even if it means another half hour to get to your destinatiion, even if it means another 20 or 30 miles to get to your destination,” Branda said. “People underestimate the power of water. It’s the most powerful thing on this planet. Two feet of moving water will carry most vehicles away and it takes only six inches of fast moving water to sweep you off your feet. Do not drive across a flooded roadway. If your vehicle stalls in high water, leave it immediately and seek higher ground. Be especially careful at night. You may be driving 60-65-70 miles per hour and not realize that your coming up on a low water crossing and before you know it, your vehicle is going to be right in the middle and it’s going to be hard to escape,” Branda added. About 20 to 25 million cloud-to-ground lightning strikes are expected in the U.S. each year, and about 30 to 50 people die from lightning. Several hundred survive and remain injured for the rest of their lives. The vast majority of lightning victims were going to a safe place but waited too long to seek shelter. The energy from one lightning strike could light a 100watt bulb for three months. The channel of air through which

lightning passes can be heated to 50,000°F, which is hotter than the surface of the sun. “If you can hear thunder from a storm, then you’re close enough to get struck,” Branda said. The 30-30 rule will help you to stay safe from lightning. If the time between the lightning flash and thunder is less than 30 seconds, you need to get inside. If you haven’t heard thunder for 30 minutes, it’s safe to go outside. Lightning strikes the tallest object in the area. “If you are in your vehicle, remain in your vehicle. You’re safe unless somebody has a convertible. If you’re outside and all of a sudden you start to feel the hair on the back of your neck tingle or your hair rising, that means lightning’s ready to strike. You’ll want to squat down. You’ll want to roll up on the front of your feet on your toes, trying to create the least amount of contact with your body to the ground,” Branda said. If you’re in a boat, you’re the tallest object. Get off the lake. Do not use corded phones in a storm. It is OK to use cordless or cell phones. Large hailstones can fall at 100 mph. The best protection from hail is to stay inside. A vehicle will provide protection from hail only up to the size of a golf ball. “Any hail larger than that and you are taking a chance that your windshield and mirrors...are going to break,” Branda said. Straight-line winds are another reason to stay inside during a thunderstorm. Sometimes straight-line winds can be just as destructive as an EF-2 tornado, which pack winds up to 135 mph.

Local mechanic battles catalytic converter thefts By Christen Coulon Editor

In yet another chapter of McNairy County’s criminal metal scrapping industry, desperate thieves have begun targeting catalytic converters in automobiles. Local business owner Larry Flowers of Adamsville knows this all too well as his business has been hit by these catalytic cat burglars multiple times. Flowers, an Adamsville mechanic specializing in Mercedes and other high-end foreign car brands is asking local law enforcement and metal dealers for help in tracking these criminals. He believes that these criminals are not your run of the mill thugs, saying that they appear to be organized, have contacts in multiple states in order to sell these parts in large numbers and that they work in groups researching their targets over a period of time. The criminals are targeting the catalytic converters because they contain platinum, a rare metal, making each converter worth between $100-$300 on the black market. However each theft can cost the car owner up to $2,500 to repair and replace the damage from the thieves. In the most recent theft, flowers lost 16 total convert-

ers from five different cars and said that the thefts have cost him thousands. He said that he knows of others in the area who have been hit by these thieves, but said that many don’t even bother reporting them anymore because they are so hard to catch. Flowers said that this is a speciality type of scrap metal theft, and credited the legitimate local scrap metal dealers for their work to help track scrap metal thieves. He said that legitimate dealers in the area will take the scrap, and then issue a check by mail to the person selling it in order to cut down on thefts. Some will even get a thumb print of the seller. Flowers said that he knows that the converters are not going to these local dealers, but thinks that someone locally may be buying them to transport out of state to sell. “I can call (local scrap yards) to see if anybody has turned in the type of the converters that we have lost,” Flowers said. “They will know them right off.” He said the criminals know to avoid most local scrap dealers because they are afraid of getting caught. Flowers said that he plans to increase security at his business and urges other local mechanics to be weary of these criminals.

Two people were injured in an auto accident last Monday in Bethel Springs, near Buena Vista Road. A 2004 Mazda Tribute, driven by Brittany Cook, 22, of Bethel Springs, was traveling South on Highway 45, when she attempted to make a left turn. Cook hit a Chrysler Sebring driven by Bobi J. Smith, 38, of Savannah, Tenn. traveling south, according to Trooper Kevin Davidson of the Tennessee Highway Patrol who responded to the accident. The Sebring then hit the ditch and the Tribute came to rest in the outer southbound lane of the highway. Davidson said that Cook was cited for failure to yield the right of way. Both drivers were transported to McNairy Regional Hospital for medical treatment. A baby was in the car with Cook and appeared to be unhurt, according to Davidson.

Kennedy talks trash: Students learn value of recycling By Jeff Whitten

Head News Writer

Nov. 15 is America Recycles Day, and the entire month is McNairy County Recycling Month, according to Solid Waste Director Cindy Kennedy. Kennedy plans a full schedule of events to raise awareness about recycling. The McNairy County Recycling Center on S. 7th St. in Selmer will be open on Nov. 15 from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. It is open every Wednesday from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. and on Fridays from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. The recycling center is open to all county residents and businesses. “We will have goodies to give away, recycling information, and from 10 a.m. until noon, Tim Pace of Eco Art will be there with items he has made from recyclables,” Kennedy said. The Eco Art show went to Michie Elementary School last Thursday and to Ramer Elementary last Friday. The McNairy County recycling trailer was also at the Fall Hog Food Festival last Saturday and will be at the Ramer Chili Cook Off on Nov. 10 at the Ramer Civic Center and Walking Trail. Everyone who brings their recyclables to the trailer on those days will receive blue bags to continue recycling and goodies to carry home. Some of the things that can be recycled are paper and cardboard, metals such as aluminum, tin and bimetal cans, clean foil, glass, plastic containers and miscellaneous items such as computers and small electronics. Over 300 residents in Selmer recycle, Kennedy said. Nearly 50 businesses and government offices recycle either in Selmer or the county, Kennedy said. McNairy County Mayor Ronnie Brooks and Kennedy thanked everyone who supports the recycling program. The Selmer program is open to all residents and businesses in the city limits. Pickup is on Friday. Call (731) 645-7908 by Thursday at noon to get your name on the list. Adamsville also has a recycling program, that has been in existence for nearly a year. About 87 people participate, according to City Administrator Steve Simon. Pickup is every two weeks. Recyclables are placed on a 501K Recycling trailer and taken to Lexington. The city is trying to reduce its tonnage to the landfill, which ASCO charges the city for, Simon said. The city also gets a small percentage from the sale of the recycled material.

First ever Halloween Street Party fills downtown Selmer By Christen Coulon Editor

The Independent Appeal hosted the first ever Downtown Selmer Halloween Street Party, Costume Contest and Haunted House Oct. 31. We were grateful to be a part of an event that brought so many people together in a sense of community, and we had a wonderful time celebrating the holiday with the more than 1,500 visitors who came out that night. In total, more than half a ton of candy was distributed to local revelers during the event. The success of this year’s event has inspired us to make this an annual occurrence at Halloween.

We would like to recognize the dozens of local organizations, businesses and individuals, who joined us in the festivities with booths, games, and decorations. We would like to thank McNairy County and the City of Selmer for their participation in this event. Special recognition needs to go to the Selmer Parks and Recreation Department whose tireless efforts brought a haunted house, games, candy, decorations and movie screen to the event. We would also like to thank Selmer Emergency Services, Cats in Actions, McNairy Regional Alliance, Arts in McNairy, the McNairy County Sheriff’s Department and the McNairy Justice Complex, Dr. Shawn Pitts, Moody Auto Sales, Styles & Profiles, G&P Printing, The First Christian Church of Sel-

mer, Rosenwald Community Center, Kevin Lipford, Byron Maxedon, Victoria’s Unisex Salon, Paul Borden Glass and The Design team. We would also like to recognize all of the local business who chose to stay open and support the local community on this important night. In addition to all of those who supported the event we would like to thank those who attended in costume. Your creative and eye catching costumes really made the evening special. We would also like to congratulate all of the winners of the costume contest for their wonderful designs. The event raised approxamately $700 for arts education in McNairy County schools.

SUNRISE By David Coy

Those Who Mourn I was speaking with someone last week who reminded me that there are words that are spoken by friends and neighbors that give great comfort. This gave pause for me and I began thinking about words that I believe all of us may provide a blessing and be comforted in our time of sorrow. Hopefully they will lift us up in our spirit that we may be able to lift someone else at a later time as we have received strength. “…to comfort all who mourn, to provide for those who mourn…; to give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, olive oil instead of mourning, and splendid clothes instead of despair…” Isaiah 61:2-3. To comfort is also to console those who mourn or because of calamity are involved in rites of mourning. As it was customary then so it is now in many cultures to wear special clothing including headdress depending upon the occasion whether joyous or sad. In time of joy; as during a wedding a turban or tiara may be appropriate. During time of grief; ashes on the head was customary. It is the goal of those who seek to comfort to ease the transition from sorrow and sadness to one of joy and happiness again for life. To many this passage is one reminder that hope yet exists in the future. The heartache that one feels now because of one’s sorrow does not imprison our heart in the eternity of despair. As one learns to work through feelings of pain and guilt, or anger and anxiety; realize there is a reason for everything I am experiencing even when I may not understand why! “Everything on earth has its own time and its own season. There is a time for birth and death, planting and reaping…” Be patient with yourself and with others. Healing and acceptance will take time and patience. sunrise@sfdcares.com

Mcnairy voices What do you think about hurricane Sandy?

By Janet Rail Publisher It is time to explain the role of the newspaper. First, the media’s purpose is to inform citizens of what is going on in their community, whether it is good or bad. Often times, the media are criticized for printing or broadcasting too much bad news such as murder, crime or tax increases. While the Independent Appeal strives to promote and advance McNairy County, covering many great events such as school sports and activities, anniversaries, great feature stories of citizens, and accomplishments, but “bad news” must also be covered. It is our duty to inform you, the reader, of both good and bad events in the community. If someone’s house was robbed on your block or your neighbor wins an award, you will know. We are here to make sure you are aware of anything and everything that goes on concerning McNairy County and its residents in a fair and balanced manner, always seeking the truth. The media exist to tell stories. Our recent coverage of a tragic death has come under criticism, claiming the press was exploiting the family’s pain and sorrow. We, as well as all other legitimate media outlets who reported this were the transmitters of the information and in no way did so to pass judgment. This newspaper NEVER intends to do harm when running a story, we simply exist to report the news as accurately and fairly as we can and chronicle the daily lives of our citizens. The nature of our business ushers us to reconstruct and contemplate the circumstances of so many tragic events that occur within the county, and to the residents who live here. We are journalists by trade, but we are human beings first, and we cannot help but to personally feel pain and sorrow for the victims of each and every tragic event that we report. Each and every loss within this community weighs deeply on our souls, and even though it is not printed for fear of bias, it should be known that our prayers and condolences are always with the friends and family of those who are touched by tragedy. We care about our community, our citizens, readers and advertisers and it is our intent to always deliver the quality of journalism that our readers have grown to expect for over 110 years, without perfection, but with honesty and integrity as the free press guarantees in these United States.

Santana Myers Russom (Finger):

Jonathan Lancaster (Finger):

“I feel sorry for all of the people in the North. I just wish I could give them something to help them out.”

“I think it’s tragic but I also think it’s good that the Governor and Mayor got out there and helped their people.”

Iley Sisk (Bethel Springs):

Vickie Andrews (Selmer):

“It’s the worst one I’ve seen in the North in many, many years. Of course, Florida always gets them but nothing like that up there because there’s so many people living there in such a close area.”

“Oh, it’s terrible. We have a daughter over there that’s 38 and she’s a doctor and she’s been evacuated up to New Jersey and she hasn’t been able to return home yet. My prayers are with everyone.”

Jonathan Andrews (Selmer): “I think it’s devastating to everybody in all those states. My prayers are with them, my daughter, especially.”

Wendy Watson (Selmer): “I think it’s a very sad tragedy and I hope that everybody gets on their feet soon. We had our house burn down and I know what it’s like to start over.”

Letter to the editor

Tennessee Highway Patrol urges motorists to watch out for deer Jesus Cares Furniture and Appliance Round Up It has been six months since Jesus Cares last rounded up furniture and appliances. We now ask you to look around for any appliances, beds, pieces of furniture, chairs, couches, things that no longer may be used by you and are actually in the way. This is your opportunity to remove it and allow a fellow McNairy Countians to be a little more comfortable and stop sleeping on the floor. I ask you to call my cell at (731) 645-4388 for a scheduled pick up or you could bring them by the back porch at the Jesus Cares Office, 140 Court Avenue, Selmer, TN on Saturday, November, 24, 2012 from 9AM – 12 noon. We will have labor to unload, along with coffee, donuts and cokes in appreciation for your trouble. Call for a pick up appointment and do it now. We need beds of all sizes, especially twin and full, bunk beds, cribs, dressers, chest of drawers, washers, dryers, refrigerators and dishes. Last year our drive netted 24 pieces – I ask you to pray for the success of this years drive and I THANK YOU. Yours in Christ, Jim Gray Jesus Cares President

The Tennessee Highway Patrol cautions motorists to watch out for deer on or near the roadways this fall season. An increase in deer-related crashes is likely during the months of October through December due to deer mating and hunting season. “Deer pose a danger to motorists throughout the year, but especially in the fall,” THP Colonel Tracy Trott said. “November is typically the worst month for deer-related crashes. It is important to exercise caution, slow down and stay alert in areas where deer are populated.” In Tennessee, between 2007 and 2011, 9.2 percent of deer-related crashes occurred on interstate highways. In 2011, there were 5,644 deerrelated crashes, including 285 that involved injuries and two that were fatal. That was up by 4.2 percent from 5,418 the previous year. However, since 2007, deer-related crashes in Tennessee have increased 5.9 percent. Additionally, State Farm, the nation’s leading auto insurer, estimates 1.09 million collisions between deer and vehicles occurred in the U.S. be-

tween July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011. That’s nine percent less than three years earlier. The Department of Safety and Homeland Security and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency suggest the following tips to help prevent deer-related crashes during peak mating and hunting seasons: Remember that mating season puts deer on the move and deer tend to move at dawn and dusk. Whenever you see deer cross the road, expect more to follow. Many times, the second or third deer crossing becomes the one that motorists hit. Be attentive; drive defensively, constantly scanning the roadside, especially at daybreak and dusk. Do not swerve to avoid contact with deer. This could cause the vehicle to flip or veer into oncoming traffic, causing a more serious crash. Swerving also can confuse the deer as to where to run. When you spot a deer, slow down immediately. Proceed slowly until you pass that point. If you do collide with a deer, never approach the injured animal. They are powerful and can cause

bodily harm to a human. Report any deer collision, even if the damage is minor. “Our agency appreciates the Department of Safety and Homeland Security’s efforts to remind drivers to be aware of the increase of deer activity at this time of year,” Don King, TWRA Chief of Information and Education said. In the event of a deer crash, move the vehicle as far off the road as possible, and dial *THP (*847) from an available cell phone for assistance. The call will be connected to the nearest THP Communications Center and a State Trooper will be dispatched to the location. Tennessee law allows deer killed in a collision to be taken and used as food, as long as you contact the nearest TWRA regional office to report the accident within 48 hours. For TWRA regional offices, visit the TWRA website at www.tnwildlife.org. Jennifer Donnals, Tennessee Highway Patrol

West Tennessee Veterans Cemetery project progresses By Adj. Gen. Dan Wood West Tennessee Veterans Cemetery Fund

Death rates for World War II, Korean, and Vietnam Veterans are averaging 1,592 per day. This total does not include veterans from Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom or Afghanistan. It has been determined by the Veterans Administration that another Veterans’ Cemetery is needed in West Tennessee to provide a dignified final resting place for these warriors, who have so ably defended this country. A steering committee, of eleven community leaders from the counties to be affected by this project, was chosen to find available properties that met the needed criteria and to select the top three locations. This process has been completed. The top three choices were made by the committee at a meeting on September 20th and were presented to TDVA Commissioner Many Bears Grinder. The final location for the site will be the decision of

the Tennessee Department of Veteran Affairs. The people from the area to be affected by the location of the cemetery are expected to raise the funds to purchase the chosen property. The dire circumstances of the bad economy created the need for the local fund raising effort. Approximately $1,000,000.00 will be needed to purchase the land. Once the land has been purchased and turned over to the Veterans Affairs Department, they will prepare the land and then maintain and operate the cemetery, which will include a chapel for housing funerals conducted on site. Steering Committee members elected the following persons to the Fund Raising Committee: Adjutant General Dan Wood

you more. So I would take two bags one to take to the door and one to keep in the car, between each trip I would empty my bag so at every house it looked like I had no candy. I always come home with lots of candy. I hope that the above story gave you a reason today to be thankful, and also made you smile. If so, this is a good day for me. Thank God for your blessing and forºº holding your hand, and Wednesday night if you get a bunch of kids with no candy in their bag, well maybe somebody read them my story. God bless you all. Until next time.

By Dorothy Goodrum Lord, I can‘t make it today. He says, “Yes you can, I will help you.” These were the lines that caught my attention from a journal I was given to read from a resident who has come to stay in our home, Ms. Barbara Flurry. Ms. Flurry is losing her eyesight. She wrote, “when I get up early in the morning and my body says “No, I can’t make it today,” but the Lord says, “Yes, I will help you make it through the day. My voice is all you will need, I also promise to hold tight to your hand and give you strength.” I am glad He does the holding. You see, I sometimes forget to hold His hand. I read this journal and was once again reminded of all my blessings. Today I have my eyesight, and am able to take care of myself. What about you? She went on to say life is like a treasure hunt. Each day we have the opportunity to unlock the treasure chest and see what is inside. I know we live in a busy time, but we still live in the best country in the world. This week exercise your freedom, but appreciate having it. Ms. Barbara said she sees much, that before going legally blind, she just took for granted. I wonder how many things I will pass today without really seeing them. Have you

Adamsville’s Tyler Hollin sends a ball down the lane against Hardin County.

30 against Hardin County. Hardin County’s boys defeated Adamsville’s 26-1 without the services of the Tigers’ best bowler, Chase Smith, who sat out with an illness. Adamsville’s girls fared better than its boys, but the Lady Cardinals lost 19-8 to the defending state champion Lady Tigers. In the loss, Amron Forsythe picked up three wins and finished with a 636 series with games of 217, 240, and 179. Breanna Taylor rolled a 500 series with a high game of 192, and Nicole Ross finished with a 494 series and a high game of 188. Forsythe’s 240 was the second highest score of the day between the boys and the girls behind Lady Tiger Hayley Miller’s 245. Tyler Hollin picked up the only win for the Cardinal bowlers, rolling against a tough Tiger team. Hollin finished with a high game of 141 and a 389 series. Brad Wilkins rolled a 395 series and had a high game of 135 while Issac Lynn finished with a 374 series and a team-high game of 142. The losses drop the girls to 1-1 and the boys to 0-2, but there is a lot of bowling left to do for both groups, and losing to a perennial powerhouses like the Hardin County boys and girls. Adamsville hit the road last Tuesday for a region double-header against Brighton and Munford after deadline. They will hit the road for another region double-header against Dyersburg and Dyer County next Tuesday.

Runners, runners everywhere By Amanda Lowrance Feature Writer

Approximately 50 runners took their mark at the starting line last Saturday morning at The Marty Community Center in Adamsville for the 3rd Annual 5K Run for the Paws, but the running excitement did not stop there. Several traveled to Selmer immediately after to compete as part of the 75 participants who registered for the 2nd Annual Fall Hog 5K held at Selmer City Park. Tina Churchwell of the McNairy County Humane Society announced that morning that 858 dogs and puppies have been adopted so far this year. “With the money raised, this is what we do,” said Churchwell. Very pleased with the participation in the 5K event, she encouraged more to join next year. The fun didn’t stop after racing one 5K for runners Linda Dewberry, Amy Smith, Sharon Keen, and Terry Taylor. They finished off the day

The Adamsville Cardinals plan to fly high in the 2012 Class 2A state playoffs on their way to reaching their goal of playing for a state championship on Dec. 1.

Adamsville to host Mt. Pleasant By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer

Opening the 2012 Division I BlueCross Bowl Class 2A Football Playoffs, the top-seeded Adamsville Cardinals (9-1) will host a second-round game against the No. 4-seed Mt. Pleasant Tigers (7-4) Friday night at 7 p.m. The two teams have met twice in their respective school histories, but never in the playoffs. Mt. Pleasant came out the victor in both games, winning 20-7 in 1995 and 27-6 in 1996. But this year, the winningest class of seniors in AHS history will lead the charge against a reeling Tiger team. Mt. Pleasant will be without the services of Princeton Harlan – one of the top quarterback recruits in the state – since he, along with two other teammates, was arrested early in October. Harlan, a senior being touted by schools like Auburn, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and Tennessee, was charged with rape. The Tigers have lost two of their four games since their star quarterback’s arrest. The back-to-back losses to Columbia Academy (5-6) and Loretto (7-3) came by a combined 45 points, snapping a 4-game winning streak, and costing Mt. Pleasant a first-round bye in the playoffs before the team bounced back with a 26-21 win over Forrest in the first round last week. MPHS scored an average of 44 points through its first seven games of the season. Since inserting freshman quarterback Walter Crawford, the team is scoring just 26 points per game. Adamsville’s defense comes into the contest level-headed, and defensive coordinator Rennard Woodmore says his bunch will be ready for the task at hand, no matter the class of the opposing quarterback. “(Crawford) looks okay but not great,” said Woodmore. “We will be ready.” The Tigers have two receivers, Ken’Yores Smith and DaVonte’ Webster, that have combined for more than 1,400 yards receiving on the year, but the high-powered offense is aver-

MLB player Casey McGehee visits SNA-Selmer Submitted Report Contributor

Special Needs Athletics wrapped up the last game of the season Oct. 29 with a night to remember and a very special treat for Halloween. New York Yankee third baseman Casey McGehee and son Mac McGehee drove down from Jackson, Tenn. to spend the entire evening with SNASelmer athletes. As special guests, Casey and Mac presented SNA athletes with a trophy, made pictures, and trick-or-treated around the bases with everyone. McGehee has played stints with several MLB teams, including the Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers, Pittsburg Pirates, and most recently, the New York Yankees where he filled in for future Hall of Famer Alex Rodriguez. McGehee is a career .257 hitter with more than 60 professional home runs and 280 runs batted in. Mac was presented with a signed baseball from all the SNA players who were present. Several Freed-Hardeman University students came out dressed in costumes, giving out candy to all the players as well. SNA-Selmer would like to thank everyone for coming out to spend the evening with SNA and thanks to all the venders for the items donated. SNA-Selmer will start the soccer season on Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the Selmer Community Center (230 N. Fifth St.). If your child is not already signed up with SNA, please arrive a few minutes early to fill out registration forms. For more information, contact Linda Taylor at (731) 610-7557.

Tip-Off Classic ushers in new basketball season By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer

The junior high basketball season got underway last Monday as all county teams came to Adamsville Jr./Sr. High School to get their season started at the annual Tip-Off Classic. Teams played two 10-minute games where the clock ran continuously until the final minute when called fouls yielded free throw attempts. Girls teams began the action and were followed by the boys as all the teams, with the exception of the hosting Cardinals, played back-to-back games. The night began with the Lady Cardinals and the Lady Lions on the court first. Both played hard and kept the energy high, but the contest ended in a 2-2 tie. The Lady Lions stayed on the court to take on the Rebels from Bethel. Bethel came onto the court fired up and ready to get its season started. Selmer came into the contest warm and with a little bit of momentum after playing Adamsville. That is all they needed to come away with a 8-3 victory. This time, it was the Lady Rebels turn

to stay on the court as the Michie Blue Devils came to take their turn. After both teams went up and down the court, and the game got a little physical, the Blue Devils found a way to come out on top with a 4-2 victory over the Rebels. Next in line for the Michie were the Eagles from Ramer. The Eagles came on strong and played well throughout the short time period, but the defending county champs were too much, winning 7-3. This took us into the final girls’ game of the night when Adamsville came back to face the Ramer. The game was tough and came down to the wire, but the Eagles were able to come away with the 6-5 win over the Lady Cards. The boys’ teams were ready to take the court. Following the same format and line-up, the Cardinals and the Lions got ready for action. The game started much faster than the girls games and the scores were just a little bit higher, but after the final buzzer sounded, the game came to an end with a 7-7 draw. In the next game, Selmer and Bethel gave the crowd all it could ask for as both teams were playing as if it were the coun-

ty championship. Like last year’s county championship, the Rebels prevailed, edging the Lions 7-6. Unable to stop the running Rebels, the Blue Devils found themselves two points shy of a draw, taking a 9-7 loss. The Blue Devils stayed on to face the Eagles next. Although they played hard, the Michie boys were unable to change their luck as Ramer came away with a 7-5 victory. The Eagles tried to keep up the good

play as they stayed on to take on the Cardinals in the final game of the night. Keep playing well they did, and the Eagles took an early lead against the Cardinals and never looked back. Ramer came away with an 18-4 victory. Keep an eye out for upcoming junior high basketball games in our Sports OnDeck section on 3B, and mark your calendars for the release of our Winter Sports Tab full of rosters, schedules, team photos and bios that will be published on Nov. 21.

aging a little more than 100 yards through the air in its last four games. The Tigers’ run-game is not the strongest link in their chain. Their starting running back amassed less than 550 yards throughout the entire regular season – less than 55 yards per game. Adamsville, on the other hand, has multiple options in the backfield that combine for an average of nearly 250 yards per game. Zak Neary leads the way, averaging more than six yards per carry and more than 120 yards per game. The Cardinals have allowed only three opponents to score 20 or more points this season while holding six under 10 points. The defense is giving up an average of less than 12 points through 10 games, and AHS has forced 30 turnovers. Head coach Brandon Gray’s biggest concern going into the game is the Tigers’ speed. “I’ll have to trade my truck to catch them if they get loose. My old truck just might not be able to run them down,” head coach Brandon Gray said jokingly. In all seriousness, Adamsville’s strengths – solid team defense, a well-balanced offensive attack, and a special teams unit equipped with one of the state’s best kickers – has the team in position to present a problem to any opponent traveling to Lendon Martin Memorial Stadium for a playoff matchup with the Cardinals. Tickets are available at the high school, and the cost is $8. Contact Assistant Principal Mike Kimmons at (731) 632-3273 for more information.

NASCAR With just two races remaining in NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup, Jimmie Johnson holds a seven-point lead over Brad Keselowski after winning his second consecutive race at last Sunday’s race at Texas Motor Speedway. Keselowski finished second to remain in contention as the two pulled away from the rest of the pack. Next Sunday’s race at Phoenix International Speedway probably will not be the deciding factor in the Chase, so it will all come down to the Ford 400 at Homstead on Nov. 18. Titan Turnovers Costly Chris Johnson rushed for more than 140 yards on just 16 carries, but five turnovers cost Tennessee a win against the Chicago Bears when former Vanderbilt quarterback Jay Cutler returned to Nashville last Sunday. The Titans (3-6, 2-3) fell 5120 as the Bears took advantage of Tennessee’s inability to retain possession. Cutler threw three touchdown passes against the Titan defense that now ranks dead last in the league. The loss was the team’s second in a row, and they will travel to Miami (4-4, 2-3) to take on the Dolphins this Sunday. Vols Survive Trojan Onslaught Tyler Bray’s 530 passing yards and five touchdowns was just enough for the Volunteers to hold off the Troy Trojans at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville last Saturday. The Vols came away with the 55-48 victory but not before receiving a scare from their Sun-Belt Conference counterparts. Troy led 48-41 with less than four minutes to play when Justin Hunter caught his third touchdown pass of the day to tie the game 48-48. Marlin Lane punched the game-winning touchdown run into the end zone with less than two minutes remaining, putting the final points on the board. The two teams combined for more than 1,400 yards of total offense. Tennessee (4-5, 0-5) will go for its first conference win when the Vols host Missouri (4-5, 1-5) this Saturday at 11:20 a.m. CDT on the SEC Network.

Tigers finish undefeated, Redskins earn first win By Will Wintermute

The Tigers slipped by the Blue Bears 16-14, and in doing so were crowned champions of the McNairy County Football League’s 2012 season. The Tigers finished the season undefeated with a record of six wins and no losses. The first score of the game came with just 2:15 remaining in the first half on a 7-yard touchdown run by the Blue Bears’ Keaton Gray. Hunter McCullar added the 2-point conversion kick to put the Blue Bears on top 8-0. McCullar had runs covering 16 and 17 yards on the 55-yard, 9-play drive. The Tigers answered three plays later as Norvante Holt raced 58 yards into the end zone. Christian Loving’s 2-point conversion kick was good and knotted the score 8-8 at halftime. The Blue Bears regained the lead on their first possession of the second half thanks to a 56-yard scamper by McCullar. The 2-point conversion kick attempt was no good, leaving the Blue Bears with their claws dug into a 14-8 lead going into the fourth quarter. Following a Tiger punt, the Blue Bears drove the ball down to the Tigers’ 34-yard line, but the team failed to convert on a fourth down play. On the very next play after taking over on their own 39-yard line, Holt dashed 41 yards down to the Blue Bear 20-yard line. Holt got the call again on

In a defensive struggle, the Redskins defeated the Big Orange 6-0. The only score of the game came with 3:15 remaining in the first quarter on a long touchdown run by Omari Robinson, covering 68 yards. The Big Orange threatened to tie the game up on their first possession of the second half. They drove the ball down to the Redskins’ 29-yard line but fumbled, and Tobais Robinson came up with the loose ball for the Redskins. The Redskins then went on a time-consuming, 65-yard, 13-play drive before turning it over on downs at the Big Orange 5-yard line. The Big Orange were able to move the ball up to the 50-yard line, but any chances of scoring were dashed by an interception by Omari Robinson, which preserved the Redskin victory.

MRA hosts annual golf tourney, teams tie for 1st By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer

The McNairy Regional Alliance hosted its annual golf tournament last Friday at Selmer Golf and Country Club. The tournament is just one way that the MRA finds ways to give back to the community. This year’s tournament coincided with the MRA’s Fall Hog BBQ Fest which was held last Saturday. The MRA could not have picked a better weekend to host their signature events as both days saw perfect temperatures and plenty of sunshine. Not only was is it a fun day on the course but it is one way that MRA is able to donate money to charity. Last Friday’s event, a 9-hole best ball tournament saw two local teams tie at the top spot. Moore Brothers Trucking and Team Independent Appeal shared the glory finishing in first place for the tournament. Both teams finished seven strokes under par. Everyone involved had a great time and all are looking forward to the event next year.

IN MY OPINION.... Students in Mrs. Miskellys’ U.S. Government classes were asked who they would vote for, and why. Here are two of their answers....

Christa Sides, Junior If I could vote for president, I would vote for Mitt Romney. I

would vote for him because I feel like he could do a better job than Obama. It bothers me that President Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize and didn’t do anything to deserve it. I don’t like that he takes credit for taking down Osama Bin Laden when our military took him down. President Obama wants to cut military spending, and Romney wants to give it back. I don’t feel “Obamacare” is in the best interest of the people, and Romney wants to replace it with a plan of his own. Romney wants to bring more jobs into the United States. I believe there are good and bad with both candidates, but I think President Obama has had his turn, and Romney deserves his chance to change some things.

Mitchel Haendel, Sophomore I would vote for President Obama because his ideals line up with the views of my own. I am pro-choice and believe that it should be the woman’s choice of what to do with her kid; that the government should subsidize abortion as it does with many other things. I believe that the tax rates should be raised back to Clinton’s level and the regressional tax code be

simplified to eliminate loopholes. Finally, I believe that since America is a land of many religions, the views of just one religion should not be made into law and that the government should be neutral of religion. Which

leads to my belief that the U. S. should embrace gay marriage as it would a regular marriage. As Obama believes in many of these things, I support him fully and hope he gets reelected to office.

In recognition of National Anti-Bullying Month in October, McNairy Central High School is pleased to announce its Family Involvement Night which will be held on Thursday, Nov. 8 in the Little Theater at 6:30 p.m. The focus of this event is an Internet safety and anti-bullying program, Project Safe Childhood, delivered by Assistant United States Attorney Deb Ireland.

Jodie Bowen, a third-grader at Michie Elementary School, donates nine inches of her long, auburn hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, a program that creates real hair wigs to donate to cancer patients, on Sept. 13. When asked why she was cutting her hair, Bowen responded, “I want the people who are sick and lost their hair to feel better. If I give them some of my hair, they can start to be happy again when they look in the mirror!”

MARTIN, Tenn. – Two special programs under the University of Tennessee at Martin Department of Educational Studies have received state awards to fund the recruitment and training of special education teachers. The Tennessee Department of Education awarded the UT Martin Special Education Summer Institute $406,272 for the 2012-2015 funding cycle. The institute, offered since 1989, provides curriculum for educational assistants and teachers who work with children with disabilities. The program pays for tuition and provides an allowance for fees, materials, books and lodging for those participating. Dr. Cherry Watts, assistant professor of educational studies, has served as the program’s director since 2006. The state department also awarded the Become a Special Educator in Tennessee (BASE-TN) Teaching Program $270,000 for the 2012-2015 cycle, representing a continuation award from 2010-2011. BASE-TN provides tuition assistance for two groups of participants. The first group includes students who have completed two years of college credit and are serving students with disabilities as educational assistants or paraprofessionals in Tennessee public schools. The second group includes students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree and wish to complete a teacher licensure in special education. “It is exciting to know that our program is able to offer tuition assistance to allow individuals to pursue their goal of special education teacher licensure. It is even more exciting to see their successes as effective special educators serving in Tennessee public schools,” said Dr. Beth Quick, chair of the Department of Educational Studies and BASE-TN project director. For more information about the Special Education Summer Institute, contact Watts at 731-881-7212 or by email at cwatts@utm.edu. For more information about the BASE-TN program, contact Quick at (731) 881-7193 or by email at bquick@utm.edu.
