Long-time Bethel chief retires By Christen Coulon
INSIDE THIS WEEK
Bethel Springs residents were left stunned following their monthly meeting last Monday as the town’s long-time Police Chief T.E. “Pee-Wee” Sowell announced his retirement effective April 30. Sowell, who has been in law enforcement for nearly 50 years, will likely leave his post as the longest serving active-duty police officer in the nation. Sowell’s resignation came at the end of another long Bethel meeting in which the block of newly elected aldermen Shirley Williams, Sherry Smith, and Gary Bizzell, Jr., solidified their power base, worked to strip Mayor Kay Cox of many of her mayoral powers and fired the town’s water manager.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Carl Perkins Center held its annual Dancing with the McNairy Stars last Saturday night at McNairy Central High School. The event raised $40,000, and all proceeds will be used to help McNairy County children. “Dancing with the McNairy Stars was the biggest, best and most successful one we have ever had. There were 75 tables and each one was filled, bringing in over 530 people,” said the center’s county director, Luke
DeLaVergne. The night began with a silent auction, dinner and a performance by Haley Barber Korban, followed by the dance performances. Six local dance couples performed in the night’s main event. Each displayed extraordinary creativity and in times comedic relief, which made for some very entertaining performances. Ross Mitchell and Terri Tacker pulled out the the stops for their dance number to “Jailhouse Rock.” The couple raised $9,000 for the campaign,

Domestic assault charges have been dropped against Selmer policeman Quinton Garland, according to a General Session Court docket sheet. The charges were dismissed on March 21 due to insufficient evidence. The alleged victim, Jalessa Westbrooks, asserted her right against self-incrimination after the preliminary hearing. Selmer Police Chief Neal Burks told the Independent Appeal last Monday that it had not yet been determined whether or not Garland would be rehired.

The McNairy Central Future Farmers of America Farm Business Management team won the State Championship last week at the Tennessee FFA State Convention in Gatlinburg, Tenn. The team members, Brook Holland, Christa Sides, Max Sellers, Sam Hawkins and Austin Ervin will move on to represent Tennessee at the National Contest in Louisville, Ky. in October at the National FFA Convention. This contest requires students to be able to evaluate cash flows, balance sheets, crop and livestock budgets, tax returns, and profit and loss statements. They must also be proficient in evaluating hedging transactions, compound interest, as well as equipment depreciation and salvage values. The Independent Appeal would like to congratulate the championship team for their efforts and wish them luck as they move on to nationals this fall.
McNairy County students were treated to an unexpected three-day weekend last week as water issues at the Ramer School forced a districtwide school closure on Friday. According to Principal Rusty Petty, the closure was due to minor flooding caused by three burst water lines at the school which occurred last Wednesday afternoon. Two of the three lines were inside the school and caused about 1-2 inches of flooding in four classrooms. Petty said the water line breaks occurred when the school temporarily switched to Eastview water as the Ramer water tower was being cleaned. Petty said that the water lines had been fixed by last Thursday afternoon and teachers were coming in Thursday and Friday to clean the damaged rooms. “We will be ready to roll Monday morning,” Petty said. The incident forced district officials to initially close Ramer School only last Thursday and, as it became apparent that the school would not be ready for Friday, a district-wide closure was called for that day. “Because of the network...and configuration of our schools, what happens in one place impacts the rest of the district,” said Assistant Director of Schools and Supervisor of Instruction for

making the dynamic duo the winners that evening and the proud new owners of the disco ball trophy. For Best Overall Performance there was a tie between disco dancing Brandon Cox and Sarah Allison and salsa stepping Ricky Winningham and Stephanie Ray. Other dancers included Dr. Keith Perkins and Grace Perkins, Jamie Lowrance and Cindy Marlow, and Hunter and Christy Robertson. Ticket sales, along with the dancer’s fundraising efforts, brought in an amazing $30,111 for the center. The night came to a close with dessert and the live auction, but the crowd and the MC, Steve Simon, saw to it that the comedy and the money kept coming.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 2013
The final prize auctioned was a date with Dr. Jim Clark that led to a bidding war and ended with Clark doing push-ups, and being cheered on by the crowd as they counted, to raise the bid above $1,000. Last year the Carl Perkins Center raised $36,000 at the event, and their goal was to exceed that amount this year. The people of McNairy County are beginning to understand the scale of this event and know what a great entertainment opportunity this is. Tickets for the fundraising extravaganza sold out three weeks before the show. Dancing with the McNairy Stars was a fun-filled night. Great food, great people, for a great cause. I don’t know how this year’s event can be topped, but I know next year will be even better. Many people are already looking forward to it, myself included.
Spring Cleaning at Selmer Elementary Parents, local businesses pitch in
By Christen Coulon Managing Editor
Parents and staff at Selmer Elementary School have partnered with local businesses to enhance the beauty of the school and provide a more stimulating learning environment for students. The beautification efforts, which began last Saturday, are focused mainly on the outdoor walkway areas of the school, and so far volunteers have removed old brush and overgrown shrubbery from along the sides of the building, planted new flowers and shrubs, laid a new cement walkway and placed pea gravel in an outdoor picnic area. Efforts will continue next Saturday beginning at 8:30 a.m., and volunteers will paint pencil designs on support polls along the walkway and continue work in the beautification areas. Parents Jennifer and Mark Taylor came up with the idea for the beautification project. The couple sought out other parents to assist with the work and found local businesses who donated money and supplies for the effort. “It just didn’t look up to par for what a kid should be coming to everyday,” Mark Taylor said. Mark credits his wife Jennifer, who is also a staff member at the school, with the original idea. “(Jennifer) got on the Internet and began looking up ideas and things we could do,” Mark Taylor said. “We decided to plant some bushes and paint some poles like pencils and a lot of other stuff like that.” Mark Taylor said that they focused on local businesses for the fundraising because it was easier than trying to apply and wait for a grant to fund the project. He said that businesses have contributed several thousand dollars to the effort. “I wanted to improve the look of the school and give the kids more pride in their surroundings,” said Jennifer Taylor. Taylor also works as the project BASIC coordinator for the school and said that the beautification efforts would go hand in hand with a new leadership program they are setting up for the students called “The leader in Me.” She said that the school administration has been very supportive of the idea. “We had a good turnout, and we are hoping to make our school more presentable,” said Assistant Principal, Dr. Sondra Kiser. “We are very appreciative of Jennifer’s (Taylor) efforts in organization of the project.” Kiser said that the efforts will contribute to making the school a happy place for the students and hoped that it would help to give a more modern look to the school. Volunteers are still needed for next week’s efforts, and those wishing to participate are encouraged to call the school at (731) 645-3131 to RSVP.

Accident claims life of Stantonville man
Staff Photo by Christen Coulon
A Stantonville man, Arthur L. Bell, 76, lost his life in a single vehicle accident last Wednesday morning. According to the Fatality Report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the accident occurred as Bell’s 2007 white GMC Canyon truck exited the left side of the road then over corrected, exiting on the right side of the road, striking a ditch as it was traveling westbound on Highway 142 approximately 4 miles east of Selmer. After striking the ditch, Bell’s vehicle then rolled, ending upside down in front of a home on the 5700 block of Highway 142. Following the accident, emergency personnel worked quickly to free Bell from the truck but were unable to save his life. He was pronounced dead on the scene. Trooper Andrew Naylor of THP said that Bell was wearing his seatbelt when the accident occurred.
Two injured in Highway 45 crash
Staff Photo by Jeff Whitten
Two people were injured in an accident on Highway 45 last Thursday. Brandy Delgatta, 34, of Morris Chapel, Tenn. suffered incapacitating injuries and was transported by Emergency Medical Services ambulance to McNairy Regional Hospital. Delgatta was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Preston Lane Gray, who was also transported by law enforcement to MRH for possible injury. Gray was cited for possession of Schedule II drugs, possession of an immediate meth precursor, following too close and lack of proof of insurance, according to a Tennessee Electronic Traffic Crash Report by Trooper Kevin Davidson and provided by the Tennessee Highway Patrol. A red 1999 International log truck, driven by Donnie Joe Johnson, 45, of Puryear, Ind., was traveling north on U.S. 45 in the outside lane. A 1998 red Chevrolet pickup truck, driven by Gray, 23, of Enville, Tenn., was also traveling north on 45, approaching the log truck. The pickup struck the log truck in the rear. The pickup then rotated clock-wise and struck the fuel tank of the log truck. The pickup came to rest on the median, facing west. The log truck pulled over in the emergency lane.

The meeting began with a 15 minute open question period where audience members were allowed to voice their opinions. During this time, the board was approached by property owners who were asking to place a trailer on a property 50 feet inside the limits of Bethel Springs. There was a question as to whether the property qualified to be grandfathered into a law prohibiting the placement of trailers within the town, and the owners did not want to wait a full month for the property commission meeting due to the hardship it would place on them. The board was united in its attempts to assist the owners and looked into penning a motion that would help to expedite the process. Ultimately the board chose to hold an early planning commission meeting to discuss their concerns and asked that all administrative procedures be handled as quickly as possible should the commission approve their request. The board then addressed the water report in which a 37 percent water loss was reported. Bizzell discussed the need to address this issue and lower the town’s water loss, which equated to about 20 gallons per minute. During this time, Bizzell and Cox bickered about the board’s previous decision to sever ties with the Selmer water department. The two argued until Cox gave up with the acknowledgment that she did not have the votes to change the town’s pursuit of this measure. The board then voted unanimously to collect on all past-due water bills in a motion that will require all past-due accounts be squared within three months or face cutoff. The board then approved, on first reading, a measure to open beer sales on Sundays after noon. This passed, with Cox and John Wood abstaining from the vote without argument. The beer vote marked the start of several votes where the Williams-SmithBizzell block pushed through everything on the agenda. The block then pushed through votes to require Norma Smith to report to the board concerning her activities in the storm clean-up efforts, to limit Cox’s dis-
cretionary spending to $1,000 per month (from $2,500), to cancel the town’s credit accounts with Walmart and Lowes, to place an ad in the paper for a public works director/meter reader/water manager and to fire the current Water Manager, John Ross Gage. Cox and Wood either abstained or voted no on all of these motions accept requiring (Norma) Smith to report to the board. Before her no vote on the motion to fire Gage, Cox apologized to the long time employee for what was about to happen. The board then heard from Larry Smith who was acting as a liaison for the McNairy County Board of Education. He confirmed that the school board would in fact take on all expenses to transfer ownership of the old bank building by the elementary school. The board had previously considered giving the property to the school but needed assurances that no further expenses for the property would be accrued by the town. The board then voted to surrender the property to the BOE with only Smith abstaining. The board then appointed new Bethel resident Scott Washington to chair a newly created Parks and Recreation Committee for the town. Washington was also appointed as a volunteer fireman for the town pending successful rectification. The town also announced that it planned to reopen bidding for a downtown enhancement grant. During a previous round of bidding no reasonable bids were accepted given the project’s criteria. Cox also encouraged residents to attend County Mayor Ronnie Brooks town hall meeting in Bethel Springs on April 30 at 6 p.m. The board then heard from Sowell who announced his retirement. Sowell said that he would be willing to train a new officer and that he would consider continuing to work for the town parttime if needed. “I ain’t quitting police work, I’m retiring,” Sowell said. “I have appreciated working here. All I have to say is, everybody in Bethel has been nice to me...But I feel that it is time to get out of this business and give someone else a chance.” Read future issues of the Independent Appeal as we look into Sowell’s historic law enforcement career as a constable,

the McNairy BOE Dr. Brian Jackson. Jackson cited the recent storm damage in Bethel Springs as an example of this procedure. Jackson said that the district-wide closure would be absorbed as one of the scheduled emergency days built into the school calendar, but said that they were still trying to determine the impact of last Thursday’s closure in Ramer. “Right now, we don’t know the magnitude of the problem...exactly how we will address the (Ramer closure) problem, we don’t know the answer to that yet,” Jackson said. Jackson added that the district will examine their options in order to meet the state requirements for attendance for all students.

Busted taillight leads to pot bust By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
A Missouri man just passing through Selmer was arrested last Tuesday by a Sheriff’s Deputy after a traffic stop, according to an incident report provided by the Sheriff’s office. Michael Sisson, 28, of Poplar Bluff, Mo. was charged with possession of a Schedule VI drug, driving on a suspended/revoked license, driving under the influence and possession of drug paraphernalia. Deputy Zach Bay was on patrol on Highway 45 S heading south when a blue SUV made a left turn out of the McDonald’s parking lot. Bay had to slow down to keep from hitting the vehicle. Bay then turned around and got behind the SUV when he observed a white light coming from a busted taillight. Bay then stopped the vehicle and asked the driver, Sisson, for his driver’s license. Sisson said his license was revoked. After running Sisson through dispatch, Bay found that Sisson had prior convictions for DUI and driving on a revoked license. Five of these convictions were in Nevada and one was in Reynolds County. Sisson was taken into custody for driving on a revoked license, fifth offense, and placed in Bay’s patrol car. Selmer Police officer Tommy Howell, who along with Sgt. Ted Roberts arrived as backup, asked Sean Burgos, a passenger, to empty his pockets on the hood of the car, and he agreed to do so. Howell unscrewed a spark plug Burgos took out of his pocket to find a marijuana cigarette butt along with marijuana residue crammed down in the spark plug. Roberts, Howell and Bay searched the SUV and found a WD-40 can that had a false bottom which contained a plastic baggie with about 4.5 grams of a green, leafy substance believed to be marijuana. They found another spark plug with a marijuana butt and marijuana residue. Also found in the vehicle was a bong, a digital scale, Clear Eyes Visine, rolling papers and a pipe. Sisson and Burgos were read their rights. Burgos, who owned the vehicle, said he did not know Sisson was driving on a revoked license and let Sisson drive because he was tired. Burgos also said that he and Sisson had smoked marijuana about two hours before the traffic stop and were going to smoke the rest when they got to Missouri, and Sisson agreed. Sisson, who was believed to be driving under the influence, was taken to the McNairy Regional Hospital Emergency Room for a mandatory blood draw. Sisson was then taken to McNairy County Jail for booking. Sisson will have his day in court on May 2.

Michie sex offender indicted By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
A Michie man has been indicted in Hardin County for violating the sex offender registry act. Clarence Ray Shivlie,41, of 695 Kendrick Rd., was indicted by the Hardin County Grand Jury on March 18. The indictment alleges that on or about Nov. 22, Shivlie was present at DD Auction House dressed as Santa Claus where children were present after having been declared a sex offender on or about Jan. 28, 1997. Shivlie is charged with letting numerous children under 18 years old sit on his lap.
In 1997, Shivlie was convicted of criminal sexual conduct in the third degree of persons from 13 to 15 years old in Muskegon County, Mich. Shivlie was sentenced to 6 to 15 years in prison for this conviction. Shivlie had finished his parole, according to Hardin County Sheriff Sammy Davidson. The owner of Double D’s, David Huffman, was unaware that Shivlie was a registered sex offender, Davidson said. Violation of the sex offender act is a Class A Misdemeanor, which carries penalties of up to 11 months, 29 days imprisonment and a $2,500 fine. Shivlie has not yet been set for trial, according to the Hardin County Circuit Court Clerk’s office.

Unemployment falls, labor force shrinks By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
Unemployment in McNairy County fell 0.8 percentage points, to 10.3 percent in February, according to preliminary non-seasonally adjusted figures released by the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. This fall was not due to more people getting jobs, but due to people leaving the labor force. The labor force fell by 130 to 10,520. There were 30 fewer people employed and 100 fewer people unemployed. The unemployment rate is 0.4 percentage points higher than a year ago. Of surrounding counties Alcorn County had the lowest unemployment rate at 9.2 percent, followed by Chester County at 9.5 percent, Hardin County at 10.3 percent and Hardeman County at 11 percent. Unemployment figures for Alcorn
County are from the Mississippi Department of Employment Security. Tennessee’s December unemployment rate rose 0.1 percentage point to 7.8 percent. The national rate decreased by 0.2 percentage points to 7.9 percent in February. In other local economic news, there were 32 homes in foreclosure, including six new ones in February, according to Realtytrac. Selmer and Adamsville each had nine homes in foreclosure, Bethel Springs had six, Guys had three and Ramer had two. Michie and Stantonville each had one. Numbers of foreclosures in the towns are not comparable to previous months because Realtytrac stopped reporting new foreclosures, only reporting total homes somewhere in the foreclosure process. The average list price for homes in the county was $82,500 in February. The median list price for Selmer
homes has more than doubled over the past year to $116,154, but for Adamsville it has fallen from $98,170 to $65,000. Fourteen homes were sold in Adamsville in February, eight in Selmer, three in Michie and Ramer and two in Bethel Springs, Guys and Finger. There were 193 homes for sale in the county in February, including 56 in Adamsville, 55 in Selmer, 22 in Michie and 20 in Bethel Springs. Chester County had 22 homes in foreclosure, Hardin County had 28 and Hardeman County had 35. Tennessee had 11,590 homes in foreclosure. These figures are also not comparable to previous months because Realtytrac stopped reporting new foreclosures. Local sales tax collections in McNairy County in February were down to $211,000, from $295,000 in January and $241,000 in February 2012.
All-Around Success Story All Preston knew was that he felt bad, so he went home from work. His wife called an ambulance. He was admitted at the ER with arrhythmia – his heart was dangerously out of rhythm. Doctors immediately took him into our heart cath lab, where they discovered he also had blocked arteries. And they found he had diabetes. Fortunately, since he was at Jackson Madison County General Hospital, he didn’t have to be moved to another facility. Heart surgeons performed a quintuple bypass. As he began to recover, he went to our cardiac rehab center where the staff guided him in strengthening his heart and controlling his diabetes. But it was the emotional support that made the biggest impression on Preston and his wife.

County Commission ends wheel tax By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
INDEPENDENT APPEAL v PAGE 5A
Brooks says industry looking at Selmer By Jeff Whitten
The McNairy County Commission voted to authorize County Clerk Ronnie Price not to collect the $20 wheel tax instituted in 1992 to pay the debt service on the Justice Center at its meeting last Monday. It also failed to vote on a Budget Committee proposal to levy a $50 wheel tax for schools, roads, maintenance and other purposes. The proposal was tabled at last month's meeting in accordance with a rule adopted last year that the commission should have at least two weeks notice of major proposals. It would have been necessary for a commissioner who voted to table the proposal to switch their vote, but none did, in order to take the tax off the table. The commission last month voted to ask the Tennessee General Assembly to rescind the $20 tax. The State House of Representatives and State Senate has voted to do so, but Gov. Bill Haslam has not yet signed the legislation, according to County Mayor Ronnie Brooks. Proceeds from the old tax can only be used to service the debt on the Justice Complex, but the final payment was made last month.
Pet cemetery considered in Milledgeville By Janet Rail Publisher
Mayor Dannie Kennedy and the board discussed the final preparations for the installation of a 35 foot flag pole with a 5 by 8 foot American Flag at a cost of $1150. The board purchased two lights from B & R Supply to highlight the flag for an additional $265. The board also discussed getting drainage ditching around the Ross Building. “I think we need to look at it and have someone with a backhoe tell us what we can do,” said Mayor Kennedy. The board passed a motion to have ditching completed on the property. There was a lot of discussion and examination of the city property relating to continual damage on the city property located directly in front of the Fire Department and at the junction of Park Street and Highway 22. Mayor Kennedy and Alderman Steve Hutton left the meeting to examine the property damage and possible remedies. After hearing all of the arguments, the mayor said he will call the state to determine recommendations for a potential culvert and solutions to the water issues as no action was taken. The board also discussed the insurance premium increasing to $7,000 to include insurance on the Ross Building and all other city properties. A decoration will be held on the second Sunday in May for the cemetery on the city property. The mayor announced the upcoming Pet Cemetery in the town. Shackelford Funeral Directors of Savannah recently purchased land in the corner of the three counties to develop a cemetery for pets. Two street lights are out and reported to the utility department. Termite contracts were discussed and approved to continue on all city properties at a rate of $70 each annually. The mayor was approached by the new Baptist Church in the community requesting to use the city hall for Sunday School classes, however, due to the city records storage in that building, the request was denied. The CDBG grant is moving along slowly for the purchase of the fire department building addition and new truck, according to the mayor. The agency lost the specs for the fire truck and the city resubmitted them recently. In old business the board approved the March 11 minutes and the financial report. The general fund balance is $21,844.84 and Street Fund $24,738.92.

One industry in the county is considering expanding and another is looking to locate in Selmer, County Mayor Ronnie Brooks told a town hall meeting in Stantonville April 1. Brooks said an industry is looking at the one vacant building in the Selmer Industrial Park. “I can’t tell you what it is,” Brooks said. Brooks also told the meeting that perhaps the economic development budget should be increased. “That probably needs to be a little bit more,” Brooks said. The bulk of the meeting was devoted to mostly factual questions about the proposed wheel tax. Brooks also talked about schools, roads and maintenance of county buildings. The Budget Committee of the County Commission proposed a $50 wheel tax at last month’s meeting, but the commission tabled consideration of it because they had not had sufficient time to consider it. Of the $50, $20 would go to debt service for school building or renovation, $11 to the county general fund, a catchall category of the county budget, $10 would go to roads, $4 would go to economic development for land acquisition and development and $2.50 each for fire protection in order to hire a full time fire chief in order to improve ISO ratings and for county building maintenance. The tax would raise about $480,000 a year for the schools, $240,000 for the roads, $264,000 for the general fund, $96,000 for economic development and $60,000 for fire protection and building maintenance each. Brooks said there would need to be more specific guidelines as to how the money would be spent if the tax was approved. The commission would have to vote to take the proposal off the table and approve it by a two-thirds vote at two consecutive meetings, in order for it to pass. Citizens can put the tax on the ballot if they can get the required number of signatures on a petition. This is ten percent of the number of votes cast in the last Governor’s election. The present $20 wheel tax is set to expire this month as the debt service on the Justice Center is retired. Brooks said the final payment would probably be made next week. This tax can only be used to retire this debt. It was passed by private act of the General Assembly and can only be rescinded by them. The County Commission passed a resolution asking them to do that at last month’s meeting. The recission would then need to be passed on two readings by the state legislature. Hardin County has a $47 wheel tax, Chester County’s wheel tax is $65.35 and Hardeman County has an $80 wheel tax. Revenue from the $2.09 per $100 asssessed value property tax has only grown 1 percent over the past three years, Brooks said. Property taxes would have to go up $0.25 to raise the $1.2 million that the proposed wheel tax would raise. In response to whether there are savings to be had in the county budget, Brooks said that was what they would be looking at in the budget process. Brooks said there were no increases in the departmental budgets

he has seen so far. “We’ve run the county very conservatively,” Brooks said. Brooks said that 93 percent of McNairy Countians pay the wheel tax, while only 43 percent directly pay the property tax. “Out of the two, that would be the fairest one,” Brooks said about the wheel tax. As he did the Adamsville meeting, Brooks concluded the meeting by passing out business cards. “Please don’t hesitate to call me or send me an email,” Brooks said.

Health insurance premiums will rise, Blackburn says By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who represents the Seventh District, which includes McNairy County, held a town hall meeting in Selmer last Wednesday. In response to a question from Adamsville City Administrator Steve Simon on the impact of the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act of 2010 (Obamacare), Blackburn predicted premium increases of 30 to 40 percent and said the planned implementation of the insurance exchanges (markets) might have to be delayed for a year because insurers are having a problem getting information from the Health and Human Services Department on what essential benefits of the plans will be required. Blackburn said the insurers are telling state insurance departments that they will not have products to go into the exchanges because of this lack of information. Before taking questions from the audience, Blackburn first spoke about the budget. “The number one question I get from my district on our email is about the budget and about the out-of-control spending,” Blackburn said. Blackburn said that she has loved serving on the budget committee and that she has been named Vice-Chair of the Energy and Commerce Committee. Blackburn explained that about 70 percent of the legislation in the House goes through the Energy and Commerce Committee. Topics within the jurisdiction of the committee include trade, telecommunication, the Internet and health care. “It’s imperative that we get the spending under control,” Blackburn said. Blackburn first walked the audience through some of the key numbers on the federal budget. Total spending was $3.5 trillion in 2012, but total tax revenue is only $2.5 trillion. “We do not have a revenue problem in Washington. We have a spending problem,” Blackburn said. The federal government spends $768 billion on Social Security and $466 billion on Medicare, both of which have their own trust funds. “These have got to be stabilized,” Blackburn said. Blackburn proposed leaving the two programs the same for people born before 1958. Changes made to save money should only affect people born after 1958, she told the meeting. Blackburn explained that if changes are not made to stabilize and make solvent these programs, their trustees say they will go broke. Blackburn advocated reforming Med-
icaid, which costs $251 billion a year, and other entitlements, which cost $547 million a year. The total national debt is now $16.8 trillion, according the U.S. Treasury Department. “This is why I keep saying we need to reduce what we are spending and looking at how we bring it (the budget) into balance,” Blackburn said. Blackburn voted for a budget passed by the House recently that would balance in ten years. “For future generations, that’s the responsible thing to do,” Blackburn said. Blackburn said she would like to see us the leader in manufacturing and innovation, and it is imperative to get the national debt under control in order to achieve these goals. Blackburn said half of our national debt is held by U.S. sources, and the rest is put out to the market. The top holder of federal debt is China, with $1.2 trillion, with Japan following closely at $1.1 trillion. Blackburn said balancing the budget and paying down the debt will lead to an economic renaissance. The debt undermines everything we are trying to do, she added. The national debt is the greatest threat to our national security, according to Adm. Mike Mullen, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the highest ranking military official in the country. The U.S. has to pay China over $200 billion in interest every year, Blackburn said. Blackburn said that she hopes the Senate passes a budget, as the House has done, so the two bills could go to conference committee, in order to work out a bill that both could pass. Blackburn told the meeting that members of Congress and federal employees can retire at age 65 or after 30 years of federal employment. She said under the federal health benefits plan, federal employees can choose their health plan. Blackburn said she has a health spending account. “I like that structure. We have insurance just like everyone else. I have a 401 (k),” Blackburn said. Blackburn said there was a perk and privilege structure about 30 year s ago, but that is long gone. In response to a question from Selmer Mayor David Robinson, Blackburn said restoring the tax exempt status of bonds from local industrial development boards may be part of a tax reform package. “It’s on the radar,” Blackburn said. Blackburn said in response to a question by Jonathan Lee of Monogram Human Resources that the House had passed STEM immigration reform legislation. This legislation makes more visas available to foreign

To The Public, Over a year ago the McNairy County Commission adopted a resolution in honor of the late Dale Fisher. The resolution honoring Fisher include the naming of a section of Highway 57 as “The Dale Fisher Memorial Highway”, extending from intersection 57 & 22 west to the Michie School. The paper work was lost at the state level and is being resubmitted. Hopefully now the project can now go forward. Respectfully Submitted Bill Wagoner County Historian
Henry great choice as Michie School principal Dear Editor, Michie is very fortunate to be getting Mr. Wayne Henry for their principal. He is a very good educator. He treats people like he would want to be treated. If the community and school board will work with him, he will make a great principal.

IN LOVING MEMORY RICKY NEAL WHITAKER 6-25-1962 - 4-12-1999
God took a look around his garden and found an empty place. He took a look upon the Earth and saw your tired face. He put his arm around you brother and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful for he only picks the best. God knows that you were tired and a cure was not to be, So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered come to me. With tearful eyes I watched you and saw you slip away. Although I loved you dearly I knew you couldn’t stay. It broke my heart to lose you but you never went alone, Part of me went with you on that day God called you home. If you have a brother cherish him with care. Because you will never feel a heartache, Until you see his vacant chair. Love Steve

Mr. Wayne and his band, Gary Holland, Tom Cox, Neil English, Peck Boggs, Bobby Franks, Clarance Goodrum, and the famous Bo Jack Killingsworth come to entertain the folks who come to hear their special kind of music. On this day I always see lots of smiles and a few dance moves. They do this on their own time and the only pay they receive is a thank you and please play just one more. There is always a few songs they asked for ev-
erytime. Billie Joe Carroll loves the song, Butter Beans. Now, if you are a good southern born person you will like this song or at least the butter beans, along with your cornbread and turnip greens. Long Black Train is also a favorite of most of the patients. Some just want any song that features the banjo or the fiddle. Others like the

Bobcat short stop Marcus Nash makes the play to first against the Wildcats from Fayette Ware. By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer
Both the Bobcat baseball and softball teams played host to Fayette Ware from Somerville, Tenn., and both came away with the district sweeps.

After a little delay waiting on the Lady Wildcats to arrive, the Lady Bobcats wasted no time jumping out to an early lead and never looking back. Senior Mikaela Rowland got things started in the bottom of the first when the Bobcats would go on to push across six runs getting started with a big lead. Allison Dillon got the call in the circle for the Bobcats and pitched well, only giving up one run in a com-

Lady Cards lose heartbreaker By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer
The Lady Cardinals traveled to Waynesboro, Tenn., and lost a hard fought battle with the Lady Cats.
Wayne County Adamsville
Lady Cards pitcher Parker Davis had a tough task coming into the game against the Lady Cats. She gave up four runs in the first inning but then settled down and held the Lady Cats scoreless for the rest of the contest. It was up to the Lady Cardinals offense to win the game. Adamsville fought and scored two runs in the top of the second then one in the top the fourth, but that is all they would be able to push across. Although shut down by Davis after the first inning, the four runs scored would be enough to beat the Lady Cards. AHS: 0 2 0 1 0 – 3 9 0 WCHS: 4 0 0 0 x – 4 5 0

McNairy Central falls to Lexington By Stephanie Parsons Sports Writer
The McNairy Central boys soccer team traveled to Lexington last Tuesday to battle the Tigers. The Tigers proved to be stiff competition for the Bobcats, and MCHS was unable to bring home the win. Lexington 4 McNairy Central 0 The Bobcats looked to be equally matched in the beginning of the first half, but that was soon to change.
Though the Bobcats have a very strong defense, their offense is what is lacking in their game and inevitably making them fall short in points. MCHS was triumphant in blocking the opposing team from making their shots count, but the Bobcats also failed in making the goals themselves. Bobcat players were successful in making several defensive stops, as well as goalkeeper Tyler Henry with some effective saves. For MCHS it was a devastating loss to the Tigers with a final score, 0-4 Lexington.

Adamsville completes sweep of Madison By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer
The Cardinals were able to come away with the big district sweep against the Mustangs of Jackson, Tenn.
Adamsville 3 Madison 2
Both offenses had trouble getting started and it was a pitchers’ duel to start the game at Adamsville. The Mustangs were able to get on the board first, pushing a run across in the fourth inning. The Cards wasted no time getting it right back, scoring one of their own in the bottom of the fourth. Adamsville gave up yet another run as the Mustangs were able to push another one across in the fifth, but they quickly answered with two more of their own in the bottom of the inning. That was all the redbirds would need as they held tight on the mound and came away with the 3-2 district win.

The Cardinals traveled to Jackson for their second battle against the Mustangs and took no time getting the offense going. Adamsville’s offense exploded and went on to score ten runs in the first two innings, jumping out to a huge lead. After scoring four more in the top of the third, the Cardinals looked to put this game away quickly with the run rule, 15 runs after three innings, but the Mustangs would not give up easily. The Cardinals allowed the Mustangs to push across four runs in the bottom of the third, eliminating the run rule. However, the redbirds were not done. They jumped out quickly again and scored five more runs in the top of the fifth, and even though they gave up two in the bottom half, the Cardinals sealed the Mustangs’ fate and left with the district win.

Bobcats hang on against Lions By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer
McNairy Central played host to the Trinity Christian Lions from Jackson, Tenn., and held on for the big win.
McNairy Central Trinity Christian
The Bobcats started the game on a rough note defensively but became better as the game went on. They jumped out early on offense, with a big home run from catcher Justin Roberts. Roberts’ three-run shot put the Bobcats on top, and they would battle to stay there. Matt Chandler and the Bobcat pitching staff held the Lions at bay.

Cardinals caged by Tigers By Stephanie Parsons Sports Writer
The Adamsville Cardinals traveled to Lexington last Thursday to battle against the Tigers. The Cards failed in their attempt to bring home the win, the final score 0-7, Lexington.
Lexington 7 Adamsville 0
The first half of the game, the Cardinals’ offense kept driving the ball down the middle, and Lexington’s defense managed to block the Cards time after time from scoring a goal. The end of the first half came to a close Cardinals, zero, and the Tigers up by three. Nathan Skinner, goalkeeper for the Cards, managed a total of eight saves for his team. In the second half Adamsville was unable to bounce back and gain a goal, unfortunately. However, the Tigers managed to get four by the redbirds. The battle ended between Adamsville and Lexington with a final score of 0-7, Tigers.
Liberty 7 Adamsville 0
Last Tuesday the Cardinals hoped to have the home field advantage against Liberty, but it would be a loss for the Cards in this mid-season battle. Adamsville started out strong with great defensive stops by Quinton Brasher and Dustin Plunk. Liberty’s offense was much stronger than the Cards’ and took an early lead in the first half, 4-0. In the second half Adamsville failed to gain the offense and keep it long enough to score. During the second half the Cardinals played stronger and harder, but Liberty managed to outmaneuver the Cards in smart offensive plays. The match came to a close with a final score of 0-7, Liberty.

Lady Bobcat Mallorie Sweat hits the volley with a chip and charge.
It was the same story in the second game of the day when Clay Dancer took the mound for the Bobcats and went on to shut down the Wildcats. Dancer recorded six strikeouts while only allowing one hit in five innings of work. The Bobcats offense stayed hot through out the second game, but they did not put the game away until late. Going into the bottom of the fourth with a three run lead, the Bobcats jumped on the Wildcats and scored four runs, essentially putting the game out of reach. With Dancer holding strong on the mound, the Bobcats would go on to score three more in the bottom of the fifth to end the game via run rule and walk away with the district sweep.
McNairy Central Liberty
The Lady Bobcats took the old saying, early and often, to heart in their district match-up against Liberty. The Lady Bobcats got a big start from Molly Grace King and Kelly Beth Earnest, who together recorded seven hits and continued to score in bunches throughout the game. McNairy scored three runs in the first and second, two in the third and the fifth, and finished the game by pushing four across in the seventh inning. Kelly Beth Earnest, who got the start for the Lady Cats, was in her groove on the rubber. Earnest had only one blemish on her score line ,letting the Lady Crusaders push two runs across in the fourth inning. With the offense scoring at will, that was all Earnest needed to pick up the district win. MCHS: 3 3 2 0 2 0 4 – 14 18 0 LHS: 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 – 02 04 3

Cards fall to the Eagles By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer
Adamsville traveled to Henderson, Tenn., last Friday to take on the Eagles from Chester County.
Chester Co. 8 Adamsville 4
Adamsville gave up a run early but fought their way back to take a 4-1 lead after the third inning. Josh Chappell was solid on the mound and kept the Cardinals in good position to win the game. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, the bats were not able to stay hot, and the pitching broke down. Adamsville was not able to push a run across after the four run third inning and held the lead going into the bottom of the sixth. That is when the Eagles broke loose and pushed six runs across, taking the win from the Cardinals. AHS: 0 0 4 0 0 0 0 – 4 05 2 CCHS: 1 0 0 0 1 6 x – 8 12 3

that is where it would stay. Until late in the top of the eighth inning, Alcorn Central was able to get the best of starting pitcher Kelly Beth Earnest and was able to push across five runs in the inning. The Lady Cats could not get the bats together to answer in the bottom half of the inning and dropped the tough game against the Lady Golden Bears.
Alcorn Central made the short trip to McNairy Central from Corinth, Miss., and went home with the win.
Alcorn Central McNairy Central
The Lady Cats had a tough match on their hands as the well coached Lady Golden Bears came to town. The game was tight. Neither team would give way. McNairy was able to score one in the bottom of the first and one in the bottom of the third to take a 2-1 lead going into the fourth inning. In the top of the fourth the Lady Bears were able to tie the game at two, and

Spectacular From Page 1B tournament raises approximately $4,000 annually for Adamsville and McNairy Central’s baseball programs. Several intriguing match-ups in this year’s tournament include a clash of the Tigers when Lexington and Hardin County meet up tonight at MCHS. The tournament is shaping up to be memorable, as both Adamsville and McNairy Central try to bring the title back to the county. Tournament history proves this is a difficult task. In 2012 Chester County won it for the second year in a row and is looking for a third with this year’s team.
*ACTUAL AD SIZES ARE LARGER THAN SHOWN HERE
We are in the process of creating a special section that will highlight the 2013 graduates of McNairy Central High School & Adamsville High School!
Be sure to reserve space to express support of your special graduate.
In 28 years, McNairy Central has been crowned champions only three times (1985, 1995, 2010), and Adamsville has won the tournament only once (2007). Hardin County comes in with rich tournament history on its side, having won the tournament seven times. Bolivar and Lexington are also no strangers to the winner’s circle. The two have combined for four tournament titles. Whatever the outcome may be, the county is sure to see some spectacular baseball played this week, and we hope everyone can come out and support their local baseball programs.
