Woman threatens deli By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
Many of you probably know Tony Chapman as a member of the McNairy County Board of Education, but you may not know that, in addition to being a community leader, he is an author and songwriter. He has self-published a book he has written called “I’d Know His Danged Ole Hide in a Tannin’ Yard and Other Things Mommanem Useta to Say.” The book is a collection of sayings like the one in the title and either an explanation of what the sayings mean or humorous stories about them. “Most of the time I tell a story that I have heard or experienced,” Chapman said. Chapman jokingly related a quote from the jacket of the book, “All stories are true. Most have been embellished.” It was published by Chapman’s company, Top Communications, which is in the audio and video production businesses, among others. The book is the fruit of four years of labor by Chapman. “I have always been fascinated by what a lot of people call idioms, but that sounds to much like idiot to me, so I don’t call them that—I call them sayings,” Chapman explained. The book has sold almost all of the first printing of 100 copies and Chapman plans a second printing and maybe a third printing, depending on how it goes. The saying in the title refers to a leather tannery, where the hides are laid out and all look alike. “If you say you would know somebody in a tanning yard, you know them real well. That’s what my Momma used to say to my Daddy,” Chapman explained. At the same time, Chapman is also submitting his book to the major publishers,

hoping they will pick it up. Chapman also includes some of the lyrics to his songs, which relate to the stories and sayings in his book. “I’ve written a lot of songs,” he said. One of his most requested songs is “Don’t Go Burning Old Glory Whenever I’m Around.” He sang this song at Hee Haw when he was the emcee and at the recent Veteran’s Day luncheon at Bethel Springs. He revised the song after 9/11 and then again when Osama bin Laden was killed. “It’s a work in progress,” Chapman said. Another of the expressions in Chapman’s book is “drunker than Cooter Brown.” Chapman explained that this saying came from the Civil War period. Brown, who lived in a

An unidentified woman threatened employees on Dec. 17 at the Food Giant in Selmer, saying that she would make the store look like Connecticut, according to an offense report provided by the Selmer Police Department. According to the report, Ptl. William A. “Tony” Westbrooks was parked in the parking lot of Kevin Redmon’s tax office when Anita Wilson came up to his vehicle and told him that a woman called the Food Giant and made a threat against the deli department. Westbrooks asked her if they had caller identification and she said no. He then asked her if anyone called 911 and she said no. She told Westbrooks that the call came in around 4 p.m., about 30 minutes before she went to Westbrooks’ car. Westbrooks told her he was ending his shift at 6 p.m. and would pass it on to the night shift. He also called dispatch and had them make a complaint card out. The next morning, Westbrooks went to the store and talked to manager John Wilbanks. In response to a question from Westbrooks, Wilbanks said no one called 911 to his knowledge. Wilbanks gave Westbrooks their phone carrier information to assist in the investigation. Wilbanks said that Whitney Chandler, the cashier at checkout No. 1 answered the call and she made a statement. “If I get hung up on one more time, it’s going to be like (expletive deleted) Connecticut up in here,” was what Chandler reported that the woman said. Investigator Tony Miller told the Independent Appeal last Thursday that the Selmer police were seeking a court order for the phone records to determine the identity of the caller.
Will back-to-back winter storms bring Christmas snow?
Lady Cats avenge loss, Cards win in overtime PAGE 1B

It seems as though winter has finally arrived in McNairy County, and with a surprise one-two punch of winter storms, we still can’t rule out snow on Christmas day. Just days before the Christmas holiday, a blast of cold air and strong winds hit the county dropping daytime highs into the mid 40s. The storm, which television forecasters have named Winter Storm Draco packed wind gusts topping out near 50 mph. With the wind chill readings outside, the temperatures last Thursday felt more like 25 degrees. Even though it did not bring any snow, Draco did pack a flurry of Christmas decorations as the strong winds that blew through the county last Thursday knocked down trees and sent holiday themed items flying through the air. In Selmer, the storm took out nearly half of the Christmas trees placed there for the Main Street CHRISTmas Festival of Trees.

Randy and Michelle Geiger will open a sports bar and grill in the old pawn shop building adjacent to where the Saw Meal Restaurant is located now in Adamsville. The name of the business will be the Cardinal Sports Grill. The Geigers also own the Saw Meal. “We’re going to have a small restaurant that will serve beer, wings and things of that nature. There won’t be neon out-
side or anything like that. It will be kept presentable, just a family atmosphere. It will allow us to pull some of the 25 to 40 year olds that are going to Jackson for Wild Wings and stuff like that. It will enable us to pull part of that business. We’ll keep it in Adamsville,” co-owner Randy Geiger said. “It will have TVs all around with sports programs, the Super Bowl, boxing—the general idea is Buffalo Wild Wings. We have five kids at home so it’s not going to be a bar, but we have had a lot of people come in and call from Jack-
son because we advertise up there. They will call on the phone and say, ‘Do y’all serve alcohol?’ ‘No.’ ‘Do y’all serve beer?’ ‘No.’ And they don’t come. We spend a lot of money to advertise up there. We feel like it will keep a little bit of money in Adamsville,” co-owner Michelle Geiger added. The Adamsville Beer Board, which has the same members as the Adamsville City Commission, granted an on-premise beer license to Randy and Michelle Geiger for the business at its Dec. 17 meeting.

Adamsville battles beavers; Dams present flood risk
MRA holds contracting workshop
By Jeff Whitten
Head News Writer
McNairy Regional Alliance
The Adamsville City Commission discussed the problem of some unwelcome residents causing problems in the Tanyard Springs subdivision at it Dec. 17 meeting. Beavers are building dams, which clog up culverts and can cause water to overflow the road, causing hazardous conditions for motorists, especially at night. When the city cleans out the culverts, the refuse pollutes Tanyard Springs Lake. “Can we get them eliminated and how much progress have we made in catching them?” Tanyard resident Sammie Maness asked. Maness told the commission that the city had been “playing” with the beavers on Tanyard Springs Lake for the past ten years, but they had been looking at the wrong place. “The beaver problem is up another creek and in the woods that we found... So for ten years we have wasted our money,” Maness said. City Administrator Steve Simon explained that beavers threaten two culverts in Tanyard Springs. “They clog them up to the point we have to dig them out. When we dig the refuse out, it piles up against the culvert and it goes out in the lake and causes some of the neighbors concern,” Simon said. If the city doesn’t clean out the culverts, the water will overrun the road, Simon explained. “This is not the last we will be working on this. They are persistent and they come back. We have a gentlemen that gave us the authority to be on his private property on the beaver prob-
A Free workshop dealing with finding new markets through local, state and federal contracts will be presented on Jan. 9, 2013, from 9:30 a.m.-noon, at the McNairy Regional Alliance, 205 West Court Avenue in Selmer. The event is sponsored by the Tennessee Small Business Development Center, (Jackson State Community College), and the McNairy Regional Alliance. This information covers how to do business with the local governmental entities, the State of Tennessee and introduces the basics of Federal Government Contracting. Also included are overviews of the U. S. Small Business Administration’s 8(a) Business Development Program, Small Disadvantaged Business Program and Historically Underutilized Business Zone, (HUB Zone) initiatives. All attendees will receive resource material that contains information necessary to become certified in order to qualify for government contracts. You will learn how to find contracting opportunities within the General Services Administration, Veterans Administration, Department of Defense and the U. S. Postal Service. Step by step instructions and actual examples will be used to help you interpret a bid match, invitation to bid, (ITB), request for proposal, (RFP), and a request for quotation, (RFQ). This session will also include information on packages from the State of Tennessee and local governments. The workshop is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration. Additional funding is provided by the TN Board of Regents. All SBA programs are extended to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis. Pre-registration is required due to limited seating. Call the McNairy Regional Alliance office at (731) 6456360, to register. There is no charge for the workshop and it is open to the public, but you must pre-register, as the workshop will not be presented if there are less than five registrations. Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested in advance by calling the TSBDC office at (731) 4245389 to make the arrangements.

Tanyard Springs Lake is beaver, dam and refuse free after last Thursday morning’s rain, but it is an ongoing problem that Adamsville is dealing with. The pesky critters build dams in the culverts that could cause water to overflow the road and vehicles to drive off into the water, especially at night. If the city removes the refuse from the culverts, it pollutes the lake. lem. So that’s being worked on right is on private property and it is not city now,” Simon said. property.

INDEPENDENT APPEAL v PAGE 3A
The Independent Appeal is you, the citizens of McNairy County. By Christen Coulon Editor
While I was putting the final touches on this year’s special Christmas section, I reflected on my time in McNairy County and I realized that this would be my second Christmas spent here with my family. Since arriving, we have made many friends, and met so many kind and interesting people. This January, my wife Lanessa and I, welcomed a new addition to our family, Moxie, who is the only native McNairy Countian in our home. Our other children Fox and Pixel have settled into daily life and truly enjoy it. Overall, the five of us have found our places here. Our friends, neighbors and those we have met in the local community have truly made us feel at home. Since joining the staff of the Independent Appeal in June 2011, I have the opportunity to meet and work with so many of you. I have traveled to every part of the county and am beginning to be able to find my way around all of the unmarked back roads without having to use Mapquest. During my time here, I have had many epiphanies about life here and life in gen-
eral. The most important thing that have I realized is that life is truly better in a small town atmosphere. The crime is lower. Everything is cheeper. The people are friendlier and the lines are shorter. When we first moved here I certainly missed some of the trappings that came with big city life. While it has been said that variety is the spice of life, I have not missed the variety of Clarksville’s culinary or shopping areas as much as I would have expected. Here there are only five choices available when I want fast food where in Clarksville there were dozens if not hundreds of choices. Every once and a while, I still have a craving for a Taco Bell Taco, but of the things I missed at first, they don’t seem to matter much now at all. Going back to Christmas, I would like to commend everyone here for their Christmas spirit. The “happy holidays” nonsense I was bombarded with working at a university cannot be found here, it’s Merry Christmas all the way and I think that is just great. The community participation in the local celebrations bring back that nostalgic feeling of Christmas I haven’t felt since I was a child. I was especially impressed with the Main Street CHRISTmas Festival in Selmer,
my entire family had a great time at this year’s event and I hope that this becomes an annual celebration. Overall, the level of decorations and spirit present in every community here in McNairy County is impressive and even if there is no snow it still somehow feels more like Christmas. This year, I want to thank my tremendous staff of talented individuals at the Independent Appeal for their hard work to put out such a great product each week. Working as a journalist is my calling, and I could not imagine a more supportive environment to work on my craft. Most importantly, I want to thank the readers of this publication for their support. Simply put, our success and our jobs exist because of you. You have supported us through highs and lows this past year and your enthusiasm for our publication makes even the longest of days worth every minute. I feel truly blessed to be able to serve you each day. When I talk to colleagues about our audience, I always note a hint of jealously when I describe the customers who wait on our doorstep each week to receive a fresh copy of our paper.

And while we have a wonderful staff and supportive owner who give their all each week to put this product out, I also know that they are not what makes this paper special. While we all make our best attempts at being good stewards of this paper, we know that the Independent Appeal is not us. The Independent Appeal is you, the citizens of McNairy County. Through your support, advertising and readership this paper has survived longer than any of us have or probably will. Thank your for your support, thank you for your advertising, thank you for your readership, thank you for your advice, thank your for your contributions and thank you for your criticism. As we begin our 111th year, we pledge to give you the same level of devotion to reporting the news of McNairy County that you have come to expect. I want to wish you all a truly Merry Christmas this year from everyone here in our extended newspaper family to all of you, the citizens of McNairy County.

Final Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain
FROM PAGE 1A
Despite the strong winds and chilly temps no reports of significant damage were reported throughout the county, according to McNairy County Fire Chief Darryl Goodrum. So, are we in for a white Christmas? While our chances of a white Christmas remain low, there is an outside chance that county residents may see a flake or two Christmas night. On the heels of Draco, another powerful winter storm (which will be named Euclid) is set to hit the U.S. this week, and this one may bring snow to the area Christmas night and early into Wednesday morning. The current forecast shows the storm bringing rain, changing to a mix of snow and rain, moving into the area late on Christmas Day. The chance of us seeing this wintery mix is currently 40 percent, and even if snow does fall, it is not likely to stick around for long as temps are forecasted to top out in the upper 30s on Wednesday.

border state, had several brothers, some of which fought for the Union and some for the Confederacy. “Back then, if you were a drunkard, they wouldn’t take you in either army. So Cooter didn’t want to fight against any of his brothers, he loved them so. So he just stayed drunk the whole war,” Chapman explained. “I said at the end of the story, ‘I wonder if Cooter ever sobered up after the end of the war or if he died of cirrhosis of the liver,’” Chapman said. Chapman has made some demos of his songs. He plans to make a gospel CD with six of his songs on it and another country CD with six more on it. He is going to sell those from his web site. One of Chapman’s future book projects is a followup to the current one: “I’d Know his Danged Old Hide in a Tannin’ Yard and Other Sayings and Yet Other Things Mommanem Useta Say.” Chapman used on 67 of the sayings he collected, but still has a drawer full of say-

ings he has not used. “I’ve got about 500. I’ve got an idea for a story for each one,” Chapman said. Chapman finds inspiration from such local hangouts such as Pat’s Cafe. “You’ve heard the expression, ‘Shut my mouth’ or ‘I want you to hush.’ I wrote a story about a friend of mine’s mother who used to say that. I’d say, ‘Was she mad at them or what?” Chapman said. Chapman is also thinking of putting the book on the audiobooks web site. He is working on things to promote the book such as sending it to libraries and bookstores. “Let’s face it, you’re never going to sell a million copies unless you can get it out to a regular publisher,” Chapman said. “I’m going to promote it a little more,” Chapman said. He has given books out to people who have helped him, who are special in his life and to his kinfolks. “I’ve got about a thousand kinfolks,” Chapman joked. “I just love to write,” Chapman said. He has also taught writing at Jackson State Community College.

Proposed Activity: McNairy County - County Wide Emergency Operations 1) Road Improvements - Cypress Rd, Litt Wilson Rd, Forty Forks Rd., Elgie Murray Road 2) Weather Alert Sirens 3) Rescue Boat 4) Rescue Truck 5) Debris Removal Truck 6) Portable Road Barriers.

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.

Performing random acts of kindness is one of the things that got Stuart Littlejohn a Youth Volunteer Award this year at the Citizen of the Year Awards Banquet, presented by the Selmer Rotary Club and Selmer Lions Club. Littlejohn is the second member of his family to win this same award. His brother, Cary, won it in 2006. “It was always really neat to have a brother I could say that won the youth volunteer of the year and I ended up getting it,” Littlejohn said. Littlejohn started the Penny Foundation his freshman year at McNairy Central High School. He is now a senior there. A charity close to Littlejohn’s heart is the Free Wheelchair Mission, which sends wheelchairs to third world countries. He bought his first one when he was in the eighth grade. “My freshman year I wanted to see how many I could get. I wanted to send a bunch over at one time,” Littlejohn said. He asked his friends to give him pennies in order to help get the wheelchairs. He has raised enough money in pennies for about 68 wheelchairs, which cost about $50 apiece, for the mission. Last year he did a jacket drive. He collected more than 50 jackets and donated them. He started a new charity called the Commission Crew. “I’m a Christian, and the Great Commission says go forth to all nations and make disciples of Christ,” Littlejohn explained. “Me and my buddies, once a month, we go out and do random acts of kindness,” Littlejohn said. There are more than 55 members in the crew. “We get together and disperse throughout the county, and we get together and do things like mowing yards, raking leaves this time of the year, just stuff like that,” Littlejohn said. Littlejohn has also done community service work with the National Honor Society and with Captain Action, a community service club. Littlejohn has played basketball at MCHS all four of his years there, as well as base-
Eastview board unhappy with road repairs By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
The Eastview Board of Aldermen were so unhappy with road repairs done on Allen McCoy Road by Steve Redmon that they voted at their Dec. 18 meeting to suspend payments to Redmon until Mayor Jessie Robbins can resolve the matter with him. Robbins told the Independent Appeal last Thursday that he had as yet been unable to reach Redmon Steve Redmon’s workers broke Debbie Sanders’ water hydrant while using her water in their road repairs on Allen McCoy Road, according to Robbins. “It flooded the yard before she found out she didn’t have water,” Robbins said. Sanders told the Mayor she heard a noise and went outside and saw a man putting water in a tank. Her water went off another day. She said that someone had unrolled her hose. Robbins said that Redmon told Avon Shelton, who owns the house, that his men did not take the water. Redmon laid the last batch of asphalt in the rain, board member Lucy Martin, who lives on the road, said. “It was rough. He did not do a good job,” she added. The Mayor said that Redmon told him he would redo some of the work without charge. “It looked like he ran over it with a rolling pin and it picked some of the asphalt up,” Martin said. “It don’t look like it’s fixed to me,” Martin added. Under the contract, the work came with a one-year warranty, Robbins said. “I wouldn’t pay anything until I was satisfied with it,” board member Elvis Butler said. The board voted to withhold the $24,300 payment until the Mayor could talk with Redmon to resolve the matter to the city’s satisfaction. Redmon was in the hospital when the work was being done by his crew, according to board member Jim Humphrey. “He probably didn’t go down there and see what they done,” Butler said. The board authorized Robbins to offer $15,000 for 14.5 acres adjoining the city park. The land is owned by the widow of the late Willard Summers, Polina Muslymova Summers. “I think it would be an asset to the city,” board member Jeff Coln said. The property is appraised at $32,500, Robbins said. Coln said that the land could be used to expand the park. Robbins expressed the concern that someone could buy it and put
something in it the city would not want, like a pig farm. Raymond Butler said a ball field could be built on the land. The board passed an ordinance to raise the minimum contract price that requires a bidding process from $5,000 to $10,000. They also amended the 2011-2012 street fund budget, adding the $36,000 they spent on street repairs. Elvis Butler, who is also Fire Chief, for the city, said two or three narrowband radios would have to be purchased, due to new Federal Communications regulations that will take effect Jan. 1, 2013. One, which was approved last year, has already been ordered. It will cost around $2,500 because it is a radio and a mobile repeater for the fire truck. A repeater is a receiver/transmitter that can receive a weak or low-level signal and retransmit it a a higher level or higher power. The other two will be 100watt radios. “We can’t even talk from here to Selmer on the portable. You have to wait until you get in the truck before you talk,” Elvis Butler said. The board authorized the purchase of three new radios. Butler said he had quit buying pagers because they cost $390 each and while a portable radio set up on page only costs $179 each. “We’d be better off with the radios. You can talk back on them but you can’t do that on the pagers,” said Alderman Burl Sutton. Butler said the obsolete radios would have to be destroyed since they will be worthless after the first of the year when all radios will have to be narrowband. Bids of five dollars for surplus copy machines, computer monitor and printers and of five dollars for two damaged surplus tables from Shawn Smith were accepted. The Eastview Water Board, which has the same members as the Board of Aldermen, voted to apply for a Community Development Block Grant that will be used to purchase new water meters . The grant will require an 8 percent match by the city and the amount of the grant is yet to be determined, City Recorder Emodene Smith said. The deadline for the city’s application is Feb. 1, 2013. The city will have to do new surveys on the percentage of low and moderate income residents since it has been more than three years since the last ones were done. The water board also voted to charge the City of Ramer $2.15 per thousand gallons of water. Ramer, which has its own source of water, will use the water from Eastview in emergencies only. Eastview gets its water from Selmer, which charges it $2.07 per thousand gallons.

Making sense of Sandy Hook By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
I, probably like many of you, am trying to make sense out of Sandy Hook, Aurora and other mass shootings. There has been a lot of discussion and debate about what to do about it and a lot of it on both sides has not made a favorable impression on me. Our shortened holiday work week makes it impossible for me to do a thorough examination of all of the arguments and proposals—that is a more long-term project. What I thought I’d do here is examine what I view as some of the weaknesses in some of the arguments on both sides of the issues raised by the shootings. It is only natural to react with anger and sadness at the tragedy at Sandy Hook, but when it comes to deciding what to do, clear thinking is a necessity. I also think we shouldn’t rush to judgement about what to do, but should carefully think through all of the issues and do our homework, making sure the facts are on our side. I don’t deal with local issues in this column, but Sheriff Guy Buck has proposed putting school resource officers in the schools to help prevent a tragedy of this type happening in our county. I am not going to tell you what to think about this proposal, but I would urge you to seriously consider it and any other local proposals that may be made in the coming weeks and months. Since this horrible crime was committed with an assault weapon, some of the proposals deal with regulating the purchase of this type of weapon. Since it is obvious that criminals and the mentally unstable should not have access to weapons, it has been proposed that a loophole that allows anyone to buy a gun at a gun show without a background check be closed. The intent of this loophole was that private individuals would be likely to know who they are dealing with and the background check requirement just created a lot of unnecessary red tape. However, if someone at a gun show is selling lots of guns to people they don’t know, the reason for the exception doesn’t apply. One thing gun control advocates don’t acknowledge about this and the proposed assault weapons ban is that any such proposals will not abolish the black market. Demand creates its own supply. If criminals and the insane want to evade background checks, the means will be available for them to do so, though the background check will make it harder for them to buy weapons.. The same can be said in the case of an assault weapons ban. If it were only so easy that all you had to do to prevent someone from doing something was to pass a law. One thing that annoys me in general about the arguments from pro-gun control advocates, is that they assume because Sandy Hook and Aurora happened certain actions ought to be taken. That assumes what needs to be demonstrated. The onus is on them to make the case that what they are proposing has a good likelihood of preventing or substantially minimizing future tragedies of this kind and that this probability outweighs any likely negative side effects. On the pro-gun side, it is true that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to bear arms. “A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” it states. It is obvious from the text that one of the things the amendment was originally intended to do was to allow men to have their rifles and pistols that they could use when the militia was called out. However, that purpose no longer exists, so you have to apply the amendment to existing conditions. The Supreme Court has done this by holding that the amendment protects an individual’s right to have guns for hunting and protection. No one is proposing taking these guns away from people, and even if they did, it would be unconstitutional. One of the weaker arguments I have heard is that God punished the innocent children and adults by having them killed for things like removing Him from the classroom, or other things like abortion or gay marriage. This picture of God portrays him as peevish, vengeful and willing to kill innocent people. This just has to be wrong and is incompatible with a loving and just God. It also ignores man’s free will. This illustrates one common flaw in the attempts to explain the tragedies. The first explanation should always be that these killers chose to take these actions, either because they are evil or insane, and the responsibility is theirs alone. As far as expelling God from the classroom, God is allpowerful and cannot be expelled by man from anywhere. Whatever you think of the Supreme Court’s decision banning organized prayer in the school, the decision does not nor cannot ban prayer on an individual basis. Based on the arguments, I don’t think there is any magic bullet solution to this problem that will represent a permanent fix.

This year: no Moore camping By Molly Moore Columnist
Every year at this time I start thinking about camping in the spring, because I forget. I forget about stocking the camper with food, and remembering every last minute detail, and how little sleep one actually gets in a camper with small boys. Every year I say this year will be different, they are bigger, they will sleep in their own bed/table. Our past trips are terribly memorable. One trip I clearly remember was during the summer I was pregnant with Spencer. The morning after we arrived, our other friends were already at the beach, so I put Jack down for a nap, left Trey with lunch directions and slung on a swimsuit. I found my friends, the seasoned campers, the people who grill and cook and make doughnuts on a whim. Clearly they all had been there a while, soaking up the solitude of the lake and laughing with one another about life and kids. I quickly dropped into my chair because I was still exhausted from the sleepless night before, which incidentally will make a girl quite grumpy, especially if that girl is moving from bed
to bed/table in a musical chair fashion throughout the long, long night. As I muttered hellos to everyone, I yanked off my coverup, and took a deep breath. Thank goodness my little one was snoozing, my husband probably was, and I had no one to lifeguard. Resting my head on my chair I lounged back and heard my friend Robin whisper, “Molly, your swimsuit is on inside out.”. Slowly opening my eyes I could see she was indeed correct. My swimsuit, which was less than desirable anyway, was completely and utterly wrong. The liners were, well, where liners are supposed to be, however they were flapping in the breeze. I thought to myself, I am a camping disgrace. Every part of me wanted to just sit there in all my glory, but I had too much respect for my fellow campers. I slinked quietly to the bathhouse, flipped the wretched suit around, and ever-so discreetly slid back into my chair. I know without a shadow of a doubt there will be another camp trip next year, regardless of how often I swear I will not camp again. Camping is not me. I love the outdoors, however, sleeping in a good bed within a solid structure is quite fulfilling, and dressing in front of a full length mirror- priceless.

Happy Birthday Molly B. 12/30/93- 6/16/02 Here I am again facing another Christmas and birthday without you. I miss you so. It is hard to put into words what losing someone does to your heart, your soul, your life. I know for me going through that time you were sick made me realize how truly precious life is. Each breath a gift from God that we so often take for granted. When we were going through your illness and death I often felt alone with my feelings. As a mother you feel emotions that are hard to explain. For me, I need details for everything, I don’t know why this is, but it’s like if I play it over in my mind maybe I can fix it, knowing it cannot be fixed. I need to hear your name from time to time because I don’t want you forgotten. I need someone to just listen and not give advice on how I should feel. I need to remember because memories are all I have. I don’t need to hear it is time to move on. I know that, but how can you when a piece of your heart is broken. Molly, I pray I have taken time to listen when someone else is in pain and I pray I didn’t give any unwanted advice as to how to handle their pain. I know it is hard to know what to say to people who have had a loss, but I know for me if someone just says your name I feel better. Knowing that people remember makes you feel better. Molly, I also want you to know we ran the St. Jude Family Race. I was overcome with emotion. 18,000 runners/walkers were there for families like us. In front of me waiting to walk was a child with a brain tumor and beside me was another one with cancer. I cannot tell you how this made me feel. In the half marathon were two angels I know, Ms. Amy and Ms. Shirley were running not because they had a child at St. Jude, but because they want to help. All year long they have raised money to help families like we were. How can you thank someone for giving so much to others. In a world where you only hear bad, you are truly reminded of just how good people can be. Because of people like them we never had a worry about being able to pay for your treatment or for any cost at St. Jude. Through their generosity and like the 18,000 runners we were able to concentrate on you and your brothers and not have the financial burden that would have occurred without people like them. I’m so grateful for this love they have shown. I will close for now knowing one day we will be in forever together and until then I will cherish every memory I have. Love, Mom

Reunion tips for college students and parents By Dr. John Greene Vanderbilt University
Welcoming a college student home for the holidays—especially if it’s a first extended visit since going away to school—can be the occasion for joyful reunions as well as some added household tension. John Greene, professor of pediatrics and associate dean for student health and wellness at Vanderbilt University, offers these tips to help keep the peace among your family members this season. Be flexible. Students have just completed a long semester and the rigors of final exams on little sleep. They likely view their holiday break as a time for rest, relaxation and a reprieve from obligations. In addition, after months of dorm living, they may resist the curfew you enforced when they were previously under your roof. “This can produce some friction,” Greene said. “I think parents should realize this is not a different person coming home, but a young adult who is developing independence and has thoughts about a schedule of their own both for family meals as well as family activities during the holidays. “The student may see this time as a break from academics and the stresses of school, while parents are just excited to have the young person back home and may try to gently push them back into the role that they had before,” he said. “So I think communication—as usual for most things—is very, very important.” Communicate your expectations. “I think as soon as possible, sit down with your student and say, ‘These are the family plans for the holidays—let us hear your plans. What were you thinking you’d like to do? What would you like your schedule to be?’” Greene said. At the same time, it’s perfectly reasonable to expect your student to be a part of the family unit.
“It’s certainly not unreasonable to expect the young person to participate in family activities,” he said. “Asking them to drive a sibling around, run errands and be a part of the holidays is more than reasonable. Just realize that you probably have a more independent person coming home than you had before they left.” Be open-minded. College students are often exposed to new knowledge and ideas by professors and friends. When your student expresses new, perhaps contrary views to your own, don’t react, Greene advises. Instead, use it as an opportunity for family discussion. “They may have been in classes or talked to other students who disagree politically or socially with some prior parental views,” Greens said. “I think parents should just listen and reflect back what the student is saying, and make sure they understand that the student is trying to find their own way and become their own person.” Set a goal to make the experience positive for everyone. As much as they might resist old rules and express newfound independence, most students still relish the comforts of home: sleeping in, home-cooked meals and plenty of TLC from mom and dad. “I think it’s very important for parents to try to enjoy their young person, and for the young person to try as much as possible to enjoy the experience of being home, because in many ways, this is a time that won’t come again,” Greene said. “If both parties can think of this time as making a memory, that will go a long way in terms of getting them through the many semesters and separations that lay ahead.” Contact: Kara Furlong, (615) 322-NEWS email@example.com.

Argonaut Book Club The Argonaut Book Club recently met at the home of Diane Gibbs. We were honored to have Diane Matlock as a guest speaker. She gave a review of her book, "Come Walk With Me to Glory," which emphasizes the magnificence of God and our desire to obtain as much of His holiness in our hearts as we can. Matlock's style, direct, personal and from the
heart, is the result of the tests of her life. Having lost a husband to Alzheimers disease and a son to aids, she offers the opportunity for us to observe the growth of our spiritual life in the hopes that we, too, may grow in faith as we endure our own trials in life. According to the Kirkus Review, Matlock calls upon Christmas to be bold, unafraid and intentional about living their faith.

State Troopers target impaired drivers and seat belt offenders Submitted Dept. of Safety
The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security today announced a reminder that the Tennessee Highway Patrol will be out in force during the Christmas and New Year’s Holiday period to ensure travelers reach their destination safely. State Troopers will focus their attention on impaired driving and seat belt usage during the holiday. “The focus of this effort is to save lives,” Commissioner Bill Gibbons said. “I urge all Tennesseans and travelers passing through our state to obey the laws designed to keep them safe, through the holidays and whenever they get behind the wheel.” During the 2011 Christmas holiday, nine people were killed on Tennessee
roadways in six fatal crashes. Alcohol was involved in 66 percent of those crashes and four of the eight vehicle occupants killed were not wearing seat belts. There was also one pedestrian killed during the 96-hour holiday period. “Unfortunately, impaired driving is a year-round problem. It becomes especially serious during the holidays as more people are traveling to and from parties and special gatherings,” THP Colonel Tracy Trott said. “Our goal is remove offenders from the roadways and protect the motoring public. We want this joyous time to be safe for everyone, and all of our traffic safety enforcement efforts are created with that goal in mind,” he added. The holiday season is one of the deadliest and most dangerous times of the year due to an increase in impaired
Twas the night before Christmas By Dorothy Goodrum Contributor
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the home Not a creature was stirring, not even a housekeeper with a broom. The medicine was given, the treatments were done In hopes some charting could now be done. The patients were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of family visits danced in their heads. And the nurse assistants’ work was now completed, I, in my haste, had just settled down for charting, that had to be done. When out on the front there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my chair to see what the matter. Away to the alarm I flew like a flash, Pushed in the numbers and threw open the door. The lights flashing, the sirens yelling, Gave the hope of an ambulance coming with a patient in tow. When, what to my wondering eyes should appear But a red truck and in the back was one dead deer With an administrator so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Justin. More rapid than eagles his coursers he claimed And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by
name. Now Pollyanna, nurses I need, Margaret, food for all would you please.
Andrea, how many rooms do we have? Leeann quick social notes need to be done. Sonya, Lisa, care plan now...you have to be writing. Rowena hold all personal calls they will all be busy. Deborah and Pam pens get ready. We have new patients with therapy that has to be done. So all of you get busy. And then in a twinkling, I heard them all go To the different departments with a mission on their mind St. Justin was watching it all with a look of determination, He was dressed in camouflage from his head to his feet. His clothes were all tarnished with duck feathers
Start a new career here
and deer skin. A bundle of jobs he gave to each one And he looked like a boss with therapy that had to be done. His eyes how serious not a smile on his face He had residents who needed therapy today. They all have to be weighed. Are you listening to me? Somebody find Dorothy Jay and tell her to get busy. He yelled for Pam, orders have to be written Deborah and staff I know you will provide. Pat. Activities make them fun! Michael checks the heaters in each room. A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had patients to admit. He spoke lots of words and we all went straight to our work All the patients now care for the needs were all met With a smile on his face he was ready to go hunting again. He gave a nod then, out the door he went. He sprang to his truck to his team gave a whistle A job well done from all my staff But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight ... “From all the staff here at McNairy County Health Care Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.”

driving. The THP will utilize several enforcement tools, including saturation patrols, bar and tavern checks, and driver license and sobriety checkpoints to help reduce serious injury and fatal crashes over the holiday. Designating a sober driver and not letting friends drive drunk are just two of the several simple steps to help avoid a tragic crash or an arrest for impaired driving. Other important tips include: Plan ahead: Whenever you plan on consuming alcohol, designate your sober driver before going out and give that person your keys. If you’re impaired, call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely. Promptly report drunk drivers you see on the roadways to the Tennessee Highway Patrol by dialing *THP. Wearing your seat belt or using protective gear on your motorcycle is your best
defense against an impaired driver. Remember, Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk. If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely. Statistics for the 2011 Christmas period are attached. Statewide sobriety and driver license checkpoints for the upcoming holiday also accompany this release. The Tennessee Department of Safety’s mission is (www.TN.Gov/safety) to ensure the safety and general welfare of the public. ºThe department encompasses the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Office of Homeland Security and Driver License Services. General areas of responsibility include law enforcement, safety education, motorist services and terrorism prevention.

Four named to 2A All-State Team By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer
There is no doubt that the 2012 football season has been sweet for the Adamsville Cardinals. Last week, it got a little bit sweeter when four Cardinal football players were named to the Class 2A All-State Team. Senior defensive back Taylor Henry, senior kicker Dustin Plunk, junior offensive lineman Colton Williams, and sophomore linebacker and running back Jacob Dengler were all awarded the prestigious

honor by the Tennessee Sports Writer’s Association. “I’m proud for those guys,” said Cardinal head coach Brandon Gray. “They are all well deserving of the honor, and I’m just excited to have our kids recognized for the hard work and dedication they put in. It says a lot about our kids.” Henry was a ball hawk on defense all season, ending the year with seven interceptions, three of which were returned for touchdowns, four pass deflections, one fumble recovery, and 34 tackles. He also caught one pass in the state championship

Cardinals. On defense, he recorded 110 tackles, 17 of which were for a loss. He recovered three fumbles, intercepted two passes, and scored one defensive touchdown. On offense, he rushed for three touchdowns and more than 140 yards on just 20 carries. “It’s a huge honor, especially to receive the award as a sophomore,” Gray said about Dengler. “But all of these guys played key roles in what we did – Colton on the oline, Taylor at corner, and Dustin’s done his job every year since he was a freshman... these guys really deserve the credit.”

Cards hang on, top Cats in overtime
By Andrew Alexander We have witnessed an exciting start to the junior high basketball season, but I’m certain the real excitement is awaiting us in the season’s second half. When the season began, there was no overwhelming favorite within the county...for the girls or boys. Now that these teams have seen each other, and now that they have tested themselves against competition outside the county, the favorites have emerged. The Selmer Lady Lions (7-2, 5-0) are on the prowl and hungry for a county championship. They’ve won all five of their county games by an average of 13 points. Their two losses came outside the county. They fell to Lexington by 12 on the road, and Chester County by five in overtime...also on the road. The Ramer Eagles (8-1, 5-0) have rolled through their first five county games as well. They’re also averaging 13-point victories over county competition. Their lone loss came on the road against Hardin County – a team no McNairy County has been able to hang with this season. Head coach Chad Austin has the Adamsville Cardinals (4-4, 3-2) back on the right track after a rough 2011 season. Adamsville even gave Ramer a run for their money, taking the Eagles to overtime before falling 37-34. Speaking of overtime, the Ramer Lady Eagles (54, 2-3) and the Adamsville Lady Cardinals (0-8-0-5) played a triple-overtime, marathon of a game a few weeks ago. The Lady Cards are showing improvement each night, and the same goes for the Lady Eagles, who are now above .500 after winning their last two games and five of their last six. Both Bethel squads are right in the thick of things.
game for a 13-yard gain. Plunk was easily the best kicker in Class 2A, finishing his senior season with 74 total points on 53 of 55 converted extra points and seven of 12 field goals made with the long coming from 35 yards out. He also had 20 touchbacks on 61 kickoffs. Williams dug into the trenches and paved the way for the Cardinal rushing attack from his position on the offensive line, making room for Adamsville to rush for more than 3,000 yards as a team in 2012 – an average of 215 yards per game. Dengler was a sophomore stud for the
Adamsville McNairy Central
Both offenses were making things happen on the court, and it was a back and forth battle to see who would come out on top. It was the Cardinals who were able to hold on to take the lead into halftime 30-29. In the second half the Cardinals came out looking to finish the job while the Bobcats fought to stay in the game and to take the lead. The teams ended the third quarter in a 43-43 tie and went on to a wild finish in the end. After Ross Burcham fouled out for that Cardinals late in the fourth quarter, the Bobcats were looking to make a run. They knotted the score 56-56 but just did not have enough left for the comeback Staff Photo by Andrew Alexander win in regulation, so the game headed to Adamsville’s Lane Burcham gets an easy put-back overtime. The overtime period saw the fight come against McNairy Central.
out of both teams. The Bobcats did not want to lose at home, but the Cardinals would not go away. After Adamsville was able to take a three-point lead late, they held on as both teams got in the bonus and began to foul at the end of the game. The Cardinals hung on, avoiding the season sweep while getting a tough win in a hostile environment. “This was a sloppy game from both teams...I know they’re a better team, just like I think we’re a better team,” said Adamsville head coach Nathaniel Root. “That game should have been in the 80’s or 90’s. Both these teams are really good, but I’m just proud of my boys and the way we fought all night. At the end, we executed and got stops and rebounds when it counted, and we went down and made free throws.” “I’m very proud for the seniors to get a win against McNairy, but this doesn’t make or break our season,” he added. Adamsville was led offensively by Lane Burcham, who finished the game with 18 points. CJ Barnes had a monumental night, scoring his 1,000th career point as he went for 28 in the loss. The Bobcats missed the sweep and fell

Lady Cats avenge loss, crush Lady Cards By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer
The Bobcats played host to the Cardinals last Tuesday night and came away with a commanding victory in the second game of this rivalry.
McNairy Central Adamsville
Everything seemed to go the Lady Cats’ way in the first half. They were making everything they offered up to the basket, and they took advantage of the Cardinal miscues.
The Lady Cards had a 24-3 hole to dig out of after the first quarter, and they could never recover. The girls from McNairy Central took the fight right out of Adamsville and a 51-15 lead into halftime. The Cardinals did get a surge in the third quarter from their leading scorer, freshman Robin Moore, but it was not enough. The Bobcat offense was still on a roll and outscored the Cardinals again 13-11. Moore finished the game with a career-high 17 points. The Bobcats had three playStaff Photo by Brian Azevedo ers scoring in double digits, Haven Phelps hits a shot from beyond the arc against the Lady Cardinals. and nine putting points on the board. “We shot the ball a lot better than we did [at Adamsville],” said Lady Bobcat head coach Friday, Dec. 28 @ MCHS Jerry Lott. “That was a big difMiddleton vs USJ (B) 1:30 p.m. ference, and our perimeter deNorth Side vs Adamsville (G) 3:00 p.m. fense was a whole lot better toNorth Side vs Adamsville (B ) 4:30 p.m. night too.

Barnes joins 1,000 Pt. Club
Building tradition one board at a time By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer
Whether you are building a skyscraper or a basketball program, the key element in the construction process is solidifying a firm foundation. Second-year head coach Nathaniel Root and the Adamsville Cardinals have laid their foundation and are building their program on the school’s rich basketball tradition...one board at a time. With the help of the Cardinal Assist Club, the Adamsville boys’ basketball team now walks out to each home game in the shadow of a board dedicated to the greats that have come before them, baring the words of what basketball at AHS
means to the community and those that have been written into its history books. Tim Campbell and the Assist Club constructed the board, and Root gathered the quotes from former players like Matt and Bubba Hoover, Tyrone Luster, Brett Jackson, Chad Austin, Kevin McClain, Dustin Perkins, Daniel Gibbs, Brandon Knight, Russ Kennamore, BJ Sherron, Jed Baker, Mike McCutcheon, and former coach and current principal, Greg Martin. “I wanted to know how much this program means to people that play here, what it means to play here and carry on the Adamsville tradition that we have in this gym,” said Root. “When

McNairy Central’s CJ Barnes reached a milestone on Dec. 18 when he scored his 1,000th point against Adamsville. “Not only is CJ a great basketball player,” said head coach Steve Forsythe. “He is a fantastic young man, works hard, and keeps his nose clean.” After finishing last season with more than 500 points, Barnes is off to a similar start this season and looks to add to his career total. He’s currently sitting on 228 points and is averaging 19 points per game. “I feel really good about getting to 1,000,” said Barnes. “It is no easy task to fulfill. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Not many people get to reach that milestone in their high school career, and I’m glad I’m one of the few people that can enjoy it. I hope that my teammates and I can continue to get better and make it much further than we have in previous seasons.” Barnes will lead the Bobcats the rest of the way against their tough district, and hopes to make a strong run come tournament time.
shoulders to continue this tradition of Adamsville basketball.” The idea for the tradition board was inspired by the University of Louisville, according to Root, and there is still room for a few more voices. “Louisville had done this, and a lot of colleges put former alumni and stuff up at their schools,” Root said. “This is a way that we can get some alumni recognized for what they’ve done for this program, and we have four spots open. We still want to get some other players up there.” The team welcomes former Adamsville basketball players to come forth and share what it means to be a Cardinal, and they hope to one day expand on the board itself with more meaningful words as the basketball tradition at AHS continues to grow.

at home to the Cardinals but the district schedule is what is on the Bobcats’ minds as well. “Typical county rivalry game,” said Bobcats head coach Steve Forsythe. “Both teams played very hard. They were able to knock down free throws, and we didn’t. Despite all the fouls and turnovers, we still had opportunities to win the game but didn’t get that done.” Forsythe was critical of the officiating late in the game. “I am confident that Stuart (Littlejohn) got fouled at the end of regulation, but we didn’t get that call,” he said. “Our crowd was great except for the baby powder at the beginning of the game. I believe that delay took some of our energy away, and we got off to a slow start.” In a pregame celebration, the McNairy Central student section lost control of their talcum powder, covering the gym and floor in a thick, powdery fog while delaying the game’s beginning. No technical foul was called for the delay of game. “We are no where near where we need to be as a team at this point in the season,” Forsythe added. “We have to get better on the boards and our interior defense in order for us to improve. We have to have some guys step up and score the ball.” Like the powder floating around the “Round House,” the atmosphere in the gym was thick with anxiety and tension when the clock was winding down in the rivalry nail-biter. “Great crowd, great atmosphere, but not a well-played game,” said Forsythe. “I watched a video of Principal (Greg) Martin saying there was no Adamsville and Selmer rivalry, that it had died. There may not be a Selmer and Adamsville rivalry, but the McNairy Central and Adamsville rivalry is alive and well. Great crowd for both teams.”
(Adamsville) Lane Burcham: 18 Pts; Tucker Campbell: 14 Pts, Brandon White: 8 Pts; Tyler Hammock: 6 Pts; Ross Burcham: 5 Pts; Jack Majors: 4 Pts; Dakorea Dilworth: 2 Pts (McNairy) CJ Barnes: 28 Pts, 10 Reb, 2 Ast; Stuart Littlejohn: 11 Pts, 4 Reb, 1 Ast; Reggie McNeal: 9 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast; Jonathan Nixon: 6 Pts, 3 Reb; Tyler Crowe, Vozzie Richardson: 3 Pts; Elijah Bond, Elijah Sanders: 2 Pts; Lane Brewer: 1 Pts

wood action last week and savored the 21-point victory when all was said and done against the Braves. The Bobcats were led in scoring by Bryant James, who had 11 points in the contest. Freshman coach Ken Bingham says that the team is getting better and they are working hard to be the future of Bobcat basketball.
From Page 1B
The Rebels (7-3, 3-2) have played fantastic basketball with the exception of a 20-point loss to Ramer. Their first matchup went down to the wire with the Eagles winning by five. Count on these boys to cruise into the tournament with 10 wins under their belts. The Lady Rebels (7-3, 2-3) began the season hot, bolting from the gates 3-0. They have yet to be beaten outside of the county, but they’ve lost their last three games against county counterparts Ramer, Selmer and Michie. With the exception of their loss in the TNT State Tournament last February, the Michie Lady Blue Devils (7-2, 3-1) had won 25 games in a row before losing their last two. Led by firstyear head coach Bridget Merry, the girls have looked strong and will continue to do so deep into the tournament. The Blue Devils (1-8, 1-3) began the season on a sevengame skid, but they’ve been playing better of late, picking up a win against the Selmer Lions (1-8, 0-5), who are fighting through a seven-game losing streak of their own. Both teams have shown they can compete night in and night out, but in the second half of the season, they’ll look to piece together more consistent performances as they build momentum going into the tournament. As always, I’m wishing all of our county players good health and good luck as the season concludes, and I appreciate the effort I see out there on a nightly basis. It makes my job that much more enjoyable. (This column is the opinion of the writer and does not necessarily reflect the views of the Independent Appeal or its owner.)
Ramer pummels Pickwick By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer
The Ramer Eagles completed the sweep of the Pickwick Southside Eagles, at home on Dec. 17.
Ramer 33 Pickwick 20
The Ramer Lady Eagles jumped out to an early lead, ending the first quarter 12-4. They never let off the gas and took a 21-9 lead into halftime. Ramer was led on the offensive end by Mary Grace Hunter, but it was the defense that held on. Pickwick came out and showed a little fight in the second half, but Ramer would not let up. The Lady Eagles (5-4, 2-3) held on for a 13-point victory and will not play again until Jan. 3 when they travel to Savannah Christian Academy.
Ramer 58 Pickwick 25
Ramer began the game on a 12-5 run and never looked back on their way to a big win. After the Eagles jumped out to their big start, they kept the offense rolling. The Eagles, led by Grant McMahan, had eight players score in the game. They came out in the second half and put on a clinic against Pickwick, scoring 18 points in the third and fourth quarters. With the win, the Eagles (8-1, 5-0) carry a lot of momentum into the second half of the season that begins against the SCA Eagles on Jan. 3.

MCHS drops two at HCHS By Brian Azevedo
Selmer Classic Cars Highway 45 S. • Selmer, TN • Phone 645-4818
The Bobcats had a disappointing night when they went into Hardin County last Thursday and lost two to the Tigers.
Hardin Co. McNairy Central
The Lady Bobcat offense had a little trouble getting started in the first half, and it cost them their fivegame winning streak. MCHS started the second quarter behind 15-9 and tried to play catch-up the rest of the game. The Bobcats were outscored by just a basket in the second quarter, but they found themselves down 27-19 going into the break at halftime. In the third quarter, the Tigers came out and made a strong run, extending their lead against the Bobcats. The Lady Cats only managed seven points in the quarter and trailed 42-26 going into the fourth. In the fourth, the Bobcats got a big push from leading scorer Porsha Chappell, who finished with 16 points, and made a run for the win. The Lady Cats outscored the Tigers 14-6 in the final period, but it just was not enough to battle all the way back. Before the loss, McNairy Central’s girls had won the last three game against Hardin County.

CJ Barnes and the Bobcat offense kept the tempo in the second quarter and slowed the game down with their half-court offense. Keeping the pressure on, they went into halftime only down 26-21. The third quarter hurt the Bobcats. After a few turnovers and the Tigers making some open looks, MCHS dug themselves into a hole. Going into the fourth quarter down 13, the Bobcats made a run. Led by Barnes and Stuart Littlejohn, the team scored 20 points in the fourth quarter but just could not catch the Tigers. “I thought our defense played well, we just couldn't hit any shots,” said head coach Steve Forsythe. “We were only 19 of 47 from the field for 40 percent, and we only had six offensive rebounds. We shot only 4 of 17 The Bobcats also struggled from downtown, going 4-for-17 from three-point land. “The third quarter hurt us as they got some easy baskets and we struggled from the field,” Forsythe added. “The guys played hard tonight. This is a good time for a break as we have several people with some nagging injuries, and hopefully this time off will get them better.”

Cards win big in Clifton By Andrew Alexander Sports Writer
Having already eclipsed their 2011-2012 win total, the Adamsville Cardinals entered the Frank Hughes Christmas Classic in Clifton, Tenn. flying high before soaring to two more wins.
Adamsville Frank Hughes
Though the Cardinals dominated the majority of the game, their coach was not overly enthusiastic about their win against Frank Hughes. “I was happy with the win, but not with the way we let them back into the game,” said Cardinal head coach Nathaniel Root. “We let them come back in the third quarter, and that’s when we should be putting teams away. We have to keep practicing and getting better because we can’t let that happen.” Ross Burcham’s dunk in the second quarter began a 6-0 run for AHS. After Tyler Hammock hit his third three-pointer of the

quarter, Adamsville enjoyed a 17-point lead before Dakorea Dilworth stretched it to 20 points on a layup with a little more than a minute to play before halftime. Burcham finished with a game-high 24 points, Hammock dropped 14, and Dilworth finished with five. Tucker Campbell pitched in with 12 points. Frank Hughes, though down, was not out. The Lions outscored the Cardinals 20-9 in the third quarter, cutting Adamsville’s lead to 10. The Cardinals regained their intensity and outscored the Lions 21-14 in the final quarter. Adamsville (8-3, 1-1) defeated Waterloo, Ala. in their first game at the Christmas Classic at Frank Hughes.
After topping county rival McNairy Central for the first time in a decade, the Lady Cardinals (5-4, 0-2) entered the Frank Hughes Christmas Classic in Clifton, Tenn. on a three-game losing streak. Following a big win over Waterloo, Ala. in their first game of the classic, Adamsville struggled through the first three quarters against the host.
Frank Hughes Adamsville
The Lady Cardinals made a feverish comeback against the Frank Hughes Lady Lions last Friday, but the end result was enough to make them sick. Trailing by 19 points in the fourth quarter to a team comprised of freshmen, sophomores, and one senior, the Lady Cardinals outscored the Lions 23-9 to close out the game, but the rally was too little, too late.
(AHS) Ross Burcham: 24 Pts; Tyler Hammock: 14 Pts; Tucker Campbell: 12 Pts; Dakorea Dilworth: 5 Pts; John Mark Pettit: 5 Pts; Lane Burcham: 3 Pts; Brandon White: 3 Pts
“If you can take anything out of a loss,” Adamsville head coach Kevin McClain said in reference to his team’s less-than-stellar play of late, “we really showed some fire for the first time since the Madison game.” Early foul trouble and botched opportunities scoring in transition left Adamsville with an 8-point deficit in the first quarter. The hole got deeper in the when Frank Hughes went on a 16-5 run to start the second quarter, and the Lady Cards headed to the locker room at halftime down 36-21. Adamsville woke up in the fourth, applied the press effectively, and their tenacious defensive effort got them back into the game. The Lady Cards cut Frank Hughes’ lead to four with one minute remaining in regulation, but the Lions closed out the game hitting free throws to seal the deal.
