A tractor trailer struck a farm tractor on Highway 45 west of Finger last Wednesday, severely injuring a Bethel Springs man. Jackie Roach was pulling a hay bailer traveling north-bound in the slow lane of Highway 45 in a 1983 model 4250 John Deere Farm Tractor when he was struck from behind by a 2001 Freightliner Tractor Trailer driven by Jerry Drake of Brownsville, Tenn. As a result of the impact, Roach’s

vehicle was pushed off the east side of the roadway, where it overturned. Drake’s vehicle also left the east side of the road, ending in a ditch. Roach sustained significant injuries as a result of the accident and was airlifted to The MED in Memphis. As of press time last Monday, Roach was stable and listed in critical condition. Trooper Jimmy Plunk, who responded to the accident, said that the cause of the accident was still under investigation and that charges against Drake, the driver of the tractor trailer, are pending and will be determined following the investigation.

A 16-year-old Guys boy was killed and his 11year old passenger was injured when their fourwheeler struck a pick-up truck in Guys last Saturday. The accident claimed the life of Bryan Irons when his 2005 Kawasaki 360 four-wheeler traveling east-bound on a gravel access road entered Sticine Road in Guys on the afternoon of July 6, colliding with a south-bound 1999 Ford F-150 pick-up truck driven by James Thompson of Guys.

This is a photo of Owl Creek as it winds its way along the Hardin-McNairy county border. Literary critics believe that Ambrose Bierce borrowed the name for his world-renowned short story “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” from this local waterway.

‘An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge’ borrows name from McNairy County

11 billion miles and counting

Is it possible that one of the greatest works of short fiction ever penned, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge,” written by Ambrose Bierce July 13, 1898 for the San Francisco Examiner, drew its titular namesake from a creek here in McNairy County? This famous work, read by millions of

high school students each year, has been turned into a Twilight Zone episode and also featured on Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Multiple adaptations for stage, television, movies, and even comic books have also been made of Bierce’s story in recent decades. I was reminded of this story, which I had read numerous times as a student, during an airing of “The Writer’s Almanac

with Garrison Keillor” on June 24, in celebration of Bierce’s Birthday. Later that same night, I was reminded of the story again, at the meeting of the Stantonville Board of Aldermen when Mayor Larry Raines and Aldermen Eddie McDaniel and Larry Russell were discussing irrigation near Stantonville’s Owl Creek.

4th of July McNairy County 2013 Staff Photos by Christen Coulon and Emily Pitts

McNairy County played host to a variety of 4th of July events this holiday. The day’s festivities began with the traditional Ramer Independence Day Parade, followed by a parade through the streets of downtown Selmer and a Kid’s Parade in the Selmer City Park. As things began to heat up later in the day, The MIXX and Dead Horse rocked a crowd of more than a thousand people at the Selmer Park before the night’s firework finale lit up the night sky.

Bethel tables everything but the kitchen sink By Christen Coulon Managing Editor

The Bethel Springs Board of Aldermen met last Monday and tabled nearly every piece of new and old business aside from approving their minutes, financial statement and water report. During the meeting, the town’s Vice-Mayor Shirley Williams served as acting mayor in the absence of Mayor Kay Cox, who was not present at the beginning of the meeting. The water report revealed that water loss was down slightly to 46 percent. In the previous month, the town announced that it had lost half its water. The town revisited its beer ordinance due to concerns from the Municipal Technical Advisory Service that multiple previous amendments made the current ordinance difficult to understand and could pose legal problems for the town. After discussion on this item and several motions to table and proceed died without a second, the board agreed without a motion to revisit this ordinance at a working session to rewrite the law. The board then discussed the state of their police department. Alderman Gary Bizzell Jr. suggested dissolving the department and putting the $40,000 into the budget. Alderman Sherry Smith posed a question to the board as to the validity of tickets written since last October if, in fact, the town’s former Chief “Pee-Wee” Sowell was working at that time without official certification. Williams said that since the Peace Of-

ficers Standards and Training office which certifies officers had not confirmed the town’s request to confirm the status of Sowell’s certification, any decision they made would be premature. The issue was then tabled. There was a discussion regarding the resignation of Erin Pickle, the town’s recorder, who bid the board farewell during the middle of last week’s budget meeting. The issue was tabled due to a lack of certainty amongst board members of Pickle’s intent to resign. The board then took up the issue of Virginia Williams’ (not an immediate relative of Alderman Williams) delinquent water bill at that customer’s request. A discussion ensued over the specifics of the customer’s bill; however, Alderman Williams made a motion to table the issue. She said that any decision the board makes on delinquent water bills should be made to affect all customers, and the board should not act to resolve accounts separately. The issue was then tabled. The board announced a working meeting for July 15 to resolve some of the issues with the tabled legislation and said that it was considering setting a date for a board retreat moderated by MTAS. In other news, the town is working to restart their Senior Citizens Luncheon on Mondays and Wednesdays. The lunch meetings would be open to all citizens over 55 and anyone who is handicapped. The board also announced that the town had placed a bid to host the new adult education center at the community center and was awaiting a reply.

Back to School Fest gives free supplies By Emily Pitts Staff Writer

Selmer’s fourth annual Back to School Fest, sponsored by the McNairy County Community Center Advisory Board, Total Health and Wellness, United Healthcare, and Bluecare Tennessee, is set to take place on Saturday July 20 at the Selmer Community Center from 10 a.m. to noon. Last year, over 500 drawstring bags of school supplies were given away to county children. This year, event organizers hope to give away nearly 600. “This event is open to any child in McNairy County, from kindergarten to 12th grade,” said event organizer Pamela Carroll. “It’s not just for the needy; it’s for anybody.” At this year’s event, United Healthcare and Bluecare Tennessee will be providing drawstring bags to children who are accompanied by an adult, and vendors will be set up around the community center gym giving away basic school supplies. In addition to the school supply giveaways, there will also be on-site health screenings by Total Health and Wellness. Woodmen of the World and the Masons will also be providing child-find and child identity services, taking DNA samples and thumbprints of participating children to keep in a database in case of an emergency. Finally, children will receive a free hot dog, bag of chips, and a drink for attending the giveaway. “We want to help out struggling parents and grandparents,” said Carroll. “That way they don’t have to scramble and use their last few pennies to buy school supplies.” For more information about the Back to School Fest, call Carroll at (731) 610-0509.

FATAL WRECK FROM PAGE 1A

Trooper Mike Richardson of the Tennessee Highway Patrol said that Thompson swerved in an attempt to avoid the collision causing his vehicle to exit the left side of the road. The boy's four-wheeler exited the right side of the

roadway and overturned after the collision. Following the accident, Irons was transported to the MED in Memphis where he was pronounced dead. His 11-year-old passenger was transported to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis with nonlife threatening injuries, and Thompson sustained minor injuries and was

OWL CREEK FROM PAGE 1A

Knowing that Bierce had fought at the Battle of Shiloh in 1862, I began researching the likelihood that he had drawn the Owl Creek name for the title of his story from his time on the battlefields at Shiloh. The only geographical reference to the actual location of the creek in the story comes from the opening line when Bierce writes, “A man stood upon a railroad bridge in northern Alabama, looking down into the swift water twenty feet below. The man’s hands were behind his back, the wrists bound with a cord. A rope closely encircled his neck.” This would seemingly rule out McNairy County as the location of Owl Creek, except for the fact that northern Alabama does not contain a geographical feature of that name. Further research led to the writings of Ambrose Bierce expert Dr. David M. Owens, an associate professor of English at Valparaiso University. Owens penned two works that discuss Bierce’s geographical references in the story: “The Location of Owl Creek Bridge,” an academic paper written in 1994 and “The Devil’s Topographer: Ambrose Bierce and the American War Story,” a book examining Bierce’s war-time experience in 2006. Speaking to the Independent Appeal, Owens said that there was no doubt in his mind that the Owl Creek referenced in Bierce’s story is the same Owl Creek located on the western edge of the Shiloh Battlefield. Owens has studied the actual locations Bierce used to set the story and believes that the locations of the bridge, the occurrence of the hanging, and the creek are an amalgamation of three real-life locations and events in Bierce’s military career. He said that the hanging was likely a reference to the actual double-hanging Bierce witnessed in Murfreesboro, Tenn., in late 1862 or early 1863. The bridge, according to Owens, is likely drawn from one of three bridges spanning the northern Alabama sec-

treated and released from Magnolia Regional Health Center in Corinth, Miss. Richardson said that neither occupant of the four-wheeler was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. He said that the investigation into the accident has concluded and does not expect any criminal charges to be filed as a result of the accident.

tions of the Tennessee and Alabama and Memphis and Charleston rail lines. Owens notes that of these two rail lines which cross northern Alabama in an eastwest route, neither crosses an actual Owl Creek. “‘An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge’ describes the hanging of Peyton Farquhar, a southern planter caught attempting to sabotage a railroad bridge considered vital to the Union Army. From the outset, Bierce clearly locates the action of the story in Alabama,” Owens writes in his 2006 book. “He reinforces the historical accuracy of the setting with a brief reference to the fall of Corinth, an immediate consequence of the Battle of Shiloh. However, there is an important fictional modification in the geography of the setting. Owl Creek is in Tennessee, not in northern Alabama. Slightly more than a mile west of the Shiloh Church is the terrain feature that became the western boundary of the battlefield: Owl Creek.” Owens said that Union soldiers at Shiloh camped near Owl Creek and bathed and swam in it before battle. Another notable Bierce critic seems to support Owens’ assessment of the location of the creek. Edmund Wilson, who wrote “Patriotic Gore: Studies in the Literature of the American Civil War,” in 1984. Wilson included in his writing that Bierce “transposed the Owl Creek from Tennessee to Alabama.” Owens said that it was not uncommon for authors to transpose the location for stories and agreed that it was similar to Ernest Hemingway’s tale, “Big Two Hearted River,” in which Hemingway writes in detail about northern Michigan’s Two Hearted River; however, most critics agree he was actually describing the nearby Fox River in the story. The transposition of names in the case of the Two Hearted River does not seem to affect tourism in the area, however. Annually, Luce County, Mich., the real-life home of the Two Hearted River uses its notoriety to rake in more than $16 million in tourism revenue. Currently, there is limited public access for tourists to visit this historic literary setting. Public access to the creek requires a long hike beginning in Hardin County at the Shiloh Battlefield.

Rosecreek Farms offers fresh, local food through CSA By Emily Pitts Staff Writer

According to the United States Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service, the demand for organic goods has been growing steadily for well over a decade. Fresh fruits and vegetables, according to the Nutrition Business Journal, have outsold all other organically produced products for over 30 years. Additionally, though the number of farmers markets in the U.S. has been steadily growing for the last 20 years, the Organic Trade Association estimates that 93 percent of organic sales occur in conventional grocery or organic food stores. Only 7 percent of organically-grown produce is sold through farmers markets and similar venues and a mere 1.6 percent through direct sales. Ray and Ashley Tyler, of Rosecreek Farms, are on a mission to change all that. “What we’re doing is raising organic produce and freerange meats, without any added chemicals,” said Tyler. “We are in the process of healing the land as well.” According to their website, Rosecreek Farm’s main goals include not only producing the best and most nutritious food in West Tennessee, but also connecting families to their land and to their local farmer. The Tylers are engaged in something called CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture. As a part of this program, families and individuals become CSA members of Rosecreek Farms. They prepay for spring, summer, and fall seasons to receive a box of fresh, organically-grown food each week. “We are trying to get this food to people who want or need

it and really meet a growing demand,” said Tyler. CSA members have the option to purchase half boxes or full boxes for the season. In addition to the fresh produce they sell every week, Rosecreek Farms also hosts a fall banquet for their members every year and provides them with recipes that utilize the week’s food through a blog written by two local women. “That’s been going really well,” said Tyler. “They take the veggies, especially ones that people aren’t used to cooking with, and invent recipes that are easy to make and a joy to eat, even for the kids.” In addition to keeping the farm running on a daily basis, the Tylers spend quite a bit of time on educating the local population, and especially the youth of West Tennessee. They speak about the benefits of organic food at garden clubs around the area and at the Lift Wellness Center in Jackson, Tenn. They will also be offering children’s cooking classes at the Lift toward the end of the month. Tyler can be found at the Jackson Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, selling produce and giving the occasional farmer’s market tour. According to Tyler, now is the best time to buy summer produce. “Right now is peak season,” said Tyler. “For the next three weeks, the market will be packed.” If you are not a CSA member or can not make it to Jackson, Rosecreek Farms also sells produce at a market stand at their Selmer location on Lola Whitten Road. This produce is sold on Thursday mornings from 8:00-9:00 and the price is a donation of any amount to the farm. Though the Tylers remain busy running a farm on a daily basis and coordinating their educational outreach endeav-

Ray Tyler of Rosecreek Farms demonstrates organic farming in May. Tyler has adopted various organic farming techniques, including a home-made compost sifter of his own invention, which uses compost collected by the City of Selmer. Produce is grown year-round in the farm’s high-tunnel, which Tyler said brings the climate of Mexico to West Tennessee.

ors, they have far-reaching, long-term goals for Rosecreek Farms. Their vision for the future includes public school programs, community gardens, and a greater local awareness about the health, environmental, and economic benefits of cooking with local, organic food. “It will take time, but we’re seeing a tremendous interest and a real desire for this,” said Tyler. “In our culture, we have gone away from local, kitchen-based meals. A lot of people want to get back to eating at home and cooking in season.” For more information about Rosecreek Farms and how to become a CSA member, visit www.rosecreekfarms.net or call (731) 645-7543.

The annual fire department BBQ fundraiser was deemed a success at last Monday’s meeting. “After expenses, the fire department raised $1,356.39. We may have been a little short on help, but everything worked out pretty good,” said Mayor Dannie Kennedy. “I thought the barbeque was really good,” said Alderman Dorothy Bridges. Kennedy swore in Alderman Ricky Hollin, who was absent at the last meeting. The board approved the June 10 meeting minutes and the financial report with a general fund of $19,570.04 and the street fund $28,931.59 balance. “I took the last financials to Nichols and they have to prepare the 941 due by the end of July,” said City Recorder Margie Alexander. The board hired Godwin & Associates to complete their monthly financial reports and audits in their last meeting. The board approved the purchase of 5.13 acres of land adjacent to the ballpark and saddle club owned by Marie Wells for $5,000. “If you can get land, there will not be more of it,” said Alderman Hershel Hollin. “It won’t hurt us to have it,” said Alderman Tony McMurry. “I think it would be a good idea, but that is just my opinion,” said Alderman Brenda Essary. The board held their meeting at the Ross Building due to a leak found across the road from the fire department that the City of Adamsville is repairing and water is off for the fire hydrant and department. “Is anyone out of water?” asked Kennedy. There was only one vacant home known not to have water due to recent water leaks in the

community. “I spoke to Mayor David Leckner and he said they would be fixing all of our leaks,” said Alderman McMurray. Fire Chief Leland Alexander reported the $505,000 disaster grant for a new fire truck, a safe room and new bay for a fire truck’s bid package should be ready in the next couple of weeks. From July 2012 – June 2013 the department was paged out 41 times for emergency medical and fire calls. “We are hoping to start construction on the building before the fire truck arrives,” said Alexander. The board approved purchase of reflective hats for the firemen at a cost of $90 as well as the purchase of new tables and chairs for the department at a cost of approx $688. The fire department wants to recruit younger firemen to join. Mayor Kennedy was approved to renew his certification as a Certified Fire Chaplain under the Tennessee Federation of Fire Chaplains. “I am proud of it, and not many communities have one,” said Alderman Hershel Hollin. The chaplains are available to fire departments across the state in times of need. “It is well worth the money,” said Chief Alexander. Dues are $100 and require 16 hours of continued education annually. The Old Station Diner requested the city block off the street in front of their business for a grand opening. The board approved, and the mayor will call the sheriff’s department to attempt to secure a deputy on site for the event. The mayor reported necessary work on the city park had not been completed, and a couple of street lights were reported out for repair. The board voted to continue monthly meetings at the Ross Building.

First man made spacecraft to enter interstellar space By Christen Coulon Managing Editor

We may be just months away from witnessing the first ever man-made object entering interstellar space. In 1977, the twin Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft were launched to explore Jupiter and Saturn. According to NASA, after the probes made a string of discoveries there, such as finding active volcanoes on Jupiter’s moon Io and detailing the intricacies of Saturn’s rings, the mission was extended. Voyager 2 went on to explore Uranus and Neptune and is still the only spacecraft to have visited those outer planets. Voyager 1 was sent to explore the outermost edge of the Sun’s domain and beyond. It is currently traversing through the outer edge of our solar system traveling at a speed of 38,000 miles per hour. Since its launch, the craft has traveled more than 11 billion miles and, according to new data, may be just a short time away from entering interstellar space. Voyager 1 and 2 are now in the “Heliosheath”--the outermost layer of the heliosphere where the solar wind is slowed by the pressure of interstellar gas. Both spacecraft are still sending scientific information about their surroundings through the Deep Space Network. Signals from Voyager 1 take more than 34 hours to reach the earth, traveling at the speed of light. The data now suggests the spacecraft is closer to becoming the first human-made object to reach interstellar space. Details released by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., support the idea that Voyager 1 has entered into a region called the magnetic highway, resulting in simultaneous observations of the highest rate so far of charged particles from outside heliosphere and the disappearance of charged particles from inside the heliosphere.

Scientists believe they have seen two of the three signs of interstellar arrival they expected to see: charged particles disappearing as they zoom out along the solar magnetic field and cosmic rays from far outside zooming in. Scientists have not yet seen the third sign, an abrupt change in the direction of the magnetic field, which would indicate the presence of the interstellar magnetic field. “This strange, last region before interstellar space is coming into focus, thanks to Voyager 1, humankind’s most distant scout,” said Ed Stone, Voyager project scientist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. “If you looked at the cosmic ray and energetic particle data in isolation, you might think Voyager had reached interstellar space, but the team feels Voyager 1 has not yet gotten there because we are still within the domain of the Sun’s magnetic field.” Scientists do not know exactly how far Voyager 1 has to go to reach interstellar space. They estimate it could take several more months, or even years, to get there. The heliosphere extends at least 8 billion miles beyond all the planets in our solar system. It is dominated by the Sun’s magnetic field and an ionized wind expanding outward from the Sun. Outside the heliosphere, interstellar space is filled with matter from other stars and the magnetic field present in the nearby region of the Milky Way. The research published in the journal Science on June 27 focuses on observations made from May to September 2012 by Voyager 1’s cosmic ray, low-energy charged particle and magnetometer instruments, with some additional charged particle data obtained through April of this year. Its twin craft, Voyager 2, is about 9 billion miles from the Sun and still inside the heliosphere. Voyager 1 was about 11 billion miles (18 billion kilometers) from the Sun Aug. 25 when it reached the magnetic highway, also known as the depletion region, and a connection to interstellar space. This region allows charged particles to travel into and out of the heliosphere along a smooth magnetic field line, instead of bouncing around in all directions as if trapped on local roads. For the first time in this region, scientists could detect low-energy cosmic rays that originate from dying stars. “We saw a dramatic and rapid disappearance of the solar-originating particles. They decreased in intensity by more than 1,000 times, as if there was a huge vacuum pump at the entrance ramp onto the magnetic highway,” said Stamatios Krimigis, the low-energy charged particle instrument’s principal investigator at the Johns Hopkins

University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md. “We have never witnessed such a decrease before, except when Voyager 1 exited the giant magnetosphere of Jupiter, some 34 years ago.” Other charged particle behavior observed by Voyager 1 also indicates the spacecraft still is in a region of transition to the interstellar medium. While crossing into the new region, the charged particles originating from the heliosphere that decreased most quickly were those shooting straightest along solar magnetic field lines. Particles moving perpendicular to the magnetic field did not decrease as quickly. However, cosmic rays moving along the field lines in the magnetic highway region were somewhat more populous than those moving perpendicular to the field. In interstellar space, the direction of the moving charged particles is not expected to matter. In the span of about 24 hours, the magnetic field originating from the Sun also began piling up, like cars backed up on a freeway exit ramp. But scientists were able to quantify that the magnetic field barely changed direction-by no more than 2 degrees.

Mcnairy voices What is your favorite thing about living in America?

By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

C. D. Rickman spoke to the McNairy County Historical Society’s May 28 meeting in Selmer on the Shiloh Civil War diary of Elsie Caroline Duncan Hurt. In part 2 of my article on his talk, the Civil War begins. “If you read Elsie’s diary, every day was a struggle,” Rickman said about the hardships during the Civil War. You would think they could just go outside and kill game, Rickman said. “You didn’t dare go outside of your cabin with a gun,” Rickman said. All of the guns were hidden in the woods. “You didn’t even have a gun in the house for protection,” Rickman said. The women in the house alone were defenseless against the Union troops and the Confederate raiders. “It wasn’t confined to one or the other. There were outlaw contingencies on each side...that took the law into their own hands,” Rickman explained. Tennessee is the only state where martial law was ever declared. Martial law removes all authority from any civil authority, Rickman said. “So suddenly, you’ve got no sheriff, nobody to even go to. If somebody wants to come in and rob you, they just come in and rob you,” Rickman said. East Tennessee and the eastern part of Middle Tennessee were Union sympathizers, but most West Tennesseans were Confederate sympathizers. The martial law was intended to remove all authority from the Confederate government, Rickman said. “They set up people in certain areas of the state that were supposed to be in charge of the law—they were supposed to be protecting people. Most of these people turned out to be bigger crooks than the guys that were supposed to be protecting people,” Rickman said. Elsie’s mother at first would not allow her brother to join the Confederate army, but she relented and he joined on Jan. 1, 1862. Her father then joined. This was common pattern, Rickman said. A son would join and then would be followed by his father. The only members of the family left at home were Elsie, her mother, two small children and a slave who served as a housekeeper. “They were here by themselves, having to fend for themselves,” Rickman said. Before her father left for war, he put eight barrels of flour and other things upstairs for safekeeping and buried a large box of hams in the garden and put a sweet potato bed on top of them. He boarded up the windows and put bars of hickory wood that dropped into iron slots for safety from within. “All of the men left everything as secure as they could to protect their homes and families,” Rickman said. Duncan built a foundation for a structure for his family to go for protection but left for war before he had time to finish it. “We were very lonesome with all the men gone to war,” Elsie wrote in her diary. Elsie kept the diary during the Civil War, then put it away. In later years, she typed it on an old typewriter. “Sometimes, it’s pretty hard to read,” Rickman said. The o didn’t work on it. “For Joe, she’s got Jae,” Rickman said. Elsie probably typed the diary in the early 1900s, while she was living in Memphis, Tenn. She wrote the diary when she was nine years old. “Folks back then were very literate,” Rickman said. The pages had fallen in a wall in the attic and when a subsequent owner tore out the wall, he found the pages. Rickman told the story of how H. P. Wood’s grandmother killed his grandfather, John Wood, with an ax in 1847. “All the kids say that he was pretty mean to her and the kids,” Rickman said. John went squirrel hunting one morning while Mahalia got the kids ready for school. When John came back, he had five or six squirrels. He threw them on the table and told Mahalia to clean and cook them. He was going to take a nap. She went out to the chopping block, using the ax to clean the squirrels. “The more she thinks about it, the madder she gets. I’m ad-libbing a bit. We don’t know what really happened. He came in and told her to cook them. As she studied on that ax, she decided she could find a better use for it, so she went in and really did a number on him, or so they say,” Rickman said. She took off in the bottom. William Wood, Peter Wood and his son, found out about it and went to the bottom to find her. “She was never seen again,” Rickman said. “My neighbor always said that on certain nights, you could hear her screaming in the woods. The tale was that they done away with her and dropped her in an old well... On that day, W. P., who was H. P.’s father, lost both his parents,” Rickman said. W. P. was about 15 years old when this happened.

“Getting back to the hardships that our people endured during the Civil War, we just cannot imagine. There is no possible way we can fathom the fear. Can you imagine the fear Elsie’s mother felt? We’re not talking about a fear that going to last for a few minutes. We’re talking about a fear that will last all the time—every day, all day long,” Rickman said. Elsie would get up at night and find her mother sitting by the fire because they were afraid to go to sleep. Once, Union troops came to their cabin looking for Elsie’s father. “They went to the point of actually getting physical with her mother, and she thought they were going to hang her mother,” Rickman said. Two of Burt Hayes raiders killed Jeff Ross’ father in Savannah, right in front of his fireplace. “There’s still a bullet lodged in front of the mantle,” Rickman said. After the war, the two crossing the Tennessee River at Pittsburgh Landing were shot from an ambush on the east bank of the river. “They suspect that it was Mr. Ross’ sons that did that,” Rickman said. “Elsie goes on to the end of the war where she talks about, ‘The flowers were blooming and the birds were singing as they built their nests as they did on that other fateful Sunday morning. With all the trouble, sorrow and death that was abroad in the land, there was nothing that could destroy our faith in God and love of the beauties of nature...We were all out in the yard when the mailrider brought the weekly mail. Then like lightning out of a clear sky, the news came that Lincoln was killed in cold blood by a ruthless murderer. There were a few old men

left at Shiloh and the vicinity. They were laughing, shaking hands and slapping each other on the back. The thought, like lots of the others, that he was killed in the interest of the South. My own father was rejoicing,’” Rickman said. “Oh, how could he rejoice over the death of that man of sorrow. It was too much for me. I felt as if my poor little heart would break,” the diary continues. Elsie’s mother’s reaction to the Lincoln assassination was the opposite of her father’s. “I went back in the house. Mother was sitting there. She looked so tired with her face so white and drawn. I felt so sorry for her, my beautiful mother. I began to wonder how much more she would have to bear. She too was sorry for the tragic death of a good man. I can understand men being killed in warfare, but just to walk up and kill a man in cold blood is against the laws of God and man,” Elsie wrote. Elsie commented on the changes wrought by years of war on the troops as they came back home. “The war was about over. Soon the boys came marching home. What a difference to what they were when they marched away. They were not conquered or whipped. They were worn out with the hardships and privations that they had gone through. They were full of courage. If they had been called back to arms, every man would have answered the bugle call. We were glad that the war was over, but we were sorry that we had lost the cause that so many brave men gave their lives for on the bloody battlefield,” she wrote. Read part three of my article on C. D. Rickman’s talk on Elsie Caroline Duncan Hurt’s diary as the Civil War ends and Reconstruction begins.

In the Bible, it tells us to honor our father and mother for a long life. As I look at the folks who live in our home, I think there are some good folks here who must have honored their parents. Honor is a word we don’t hear a lot anymore. Our parents are our history and an ever-present part of our future. If you still have your parents you are very blessed. If you have good memories of your parents, you too are blessed. Anthony and Patricia Ann Huggins live in our home, and they are the parents of Wade Huggins. Mr. Anthony is known to most of us as Pop, a kind man with a great smile, and he and his wife Ann are some of our greatest folks. They attend activities, especially on the days we play Bingo. They also come down when Mr. Wayne Jerrolds is in the

house. Mrs. Ann is a very active lady who enjoys Facebook and keeping up with all of her friends. So if you don’t think of the folks in our home as still being very active, well, you don’t know the people who live inside our walls. Wade and his wife Melba and their sons come to visit Mr. Anthony and Mrs. Ann often, and as far as I am concerned, there is no greater way to honor your parents than spending time with them. Spend time with your parents, if you still have the honor of doing so. I used to love the lazy Sunday afternoons when my Mom and Dad would sit on the porch and tell about their childhood—the funny stories that have shaped you and them into a family. Time moves on, and I know we all live in a busy world, but don’t be too busy to learn all you can from your parents. Until next time.

DEWEY PHILLIPS I

magine that you are a member of the typical McNairy County family heading out West on a family vacation. It’s the summer of 1950. Think American Graffiti, but Tennessee style. Mom and Dad are in the front seat and the kids are in back, fidgeting and already asking, “Are we there yet?” even though you are just rolling into Memphis on the first leg of your journey, a mere two hours from home. Dad turns up the volume on the car radio and begins scanning the dial for something— anything—to keep the kids occupied. Pretty soon he lands on WHBQ, where a smoking guitar lick practically vibrates the flimsy car speakers to shreds. B.B. King wails out a questionable lyric, “Waaaaaoooooo, it’s three o’clock in the morning, baby…” Suddenly the kids are quiet. Mom is tapping her toes and Dad gets a puzzled look on his face. Who knew that WHBQ even played that sort of thing? In fact, WHBQ had only recently begun programming “that sort of thing.” Determined to emulate the success of WDIA, who first began attracting Memphis’ black audiences with African American deejays and solid R&B programming, WHBQ was straddling a fine line. The airwaves were not yet integrated, but they wanted the best of both worlds. How could they draw in the African American listeners without alienating their white audiences and advertisers? It was a dicey business in the still-segregated South. At first, WHBQ hired a baritone voiced radio announcer cut from the same mold as all the other squeaky clean, generic radio voices of the day. He might just as well have been announcing for the Lawrence Welk hour. They programmed it just like any other radio show and played a few rhythm and blues records when WDIA went off the air at sundown. It was a flop of epic proportions. Nobody was listening, so they went back to the drawing board. The solution they stumbled across would forever change the history of broadcasting and the music industry. Before B.B. can finish his song, “Three O’clock Blues,” a manic, hillbilly deejay breaks in over the top of the music. “Deegaw!” he shouts. He tells a crude joke, which couldn’t possibly be less offensive than whatever B.B. had in mind at three o’clock in the morning. His rapid‐fire delivery with a deep‐fried, Southern drawl is hysterical, as he improvises his way through a Falstaff Beer commercial concluding with, “If you can’t drink it, freeze it and eat it! And don’t forget to tell ‘em Phillips sent ya!” The kids are rolling with laughter, and mom is gaping at the dashboard as if she’s just seen a ghost. “Good heavens,” she shouts, “that’s Dewey! I sat next to that clown in English class!” Dad instinctively reaches for the radio dial but the kids groan, “Awwww, Pop! Don’t turn it! We want to hear Daddy O Dewey!” Mom and Dad aren’t sure what to think, but they know two things for certain: 1) Dewey Phillips has come a long way from Adamsville High School; 2) They’ve never heard anything quite like him before. Nobody had. While the scene just described is imaginary, it is based in fact, and many families across the Midsouth experienced something very much like it. Daddy‐O Dewey Phillips of Adamsville was the voice of a pivotal postwar American generation, and it is not stretching the point to say, the world has never been quite the same since he first appeared on the scene. In 1948, after a brief stint in the military, Dewey Phillips moved from his McNairy County home to Memphis, looking for a job—any job thay would have him in the music industry. As close as he could come without any professional experience was selling records at Grant’s Department Store on Main Street in downtown. Undeterred by such a humble start, Phillips talked the store manager into letting him put loud speakers on the street to play his favorite records. As a music fan, he had a keen ear for the best tracks from the very beginning, and it wasn’t long before he had a microphone patched into the system, doing his routine for passersby while hawking the latest releases—mostly what was then called “race music.” Record sales soared and crowds began gathering outside Grant’s just to hear Dewey do his thing. He was a hit. Meanwhile, WHBQ was in a quandary about how to manage their floundering experiment with R&B radio programming. They decided to take a chance on Dewey. They worried about his lack of polish as an announcer. They worried about his unapologetic irreverence in front of the microphone. They worried about how his white boy, corn‐pone persona would play with black My father loved McNairy County and loved Adamsville. listeners. They worried about ofHe had the privilege of introducing a lot of these rock ’n’ roll fending white audiences and advertisers. They worried that words records, and it was his honor to do that...Our family really like “deegaw” might be subversive appreciates the acknowledgement he has received. I wish he or worse yet, dirty. To be sure, all these worries were well founded, could’ve been here to accept the award himself. but the listeners loved Dewey im-Jerry Phillips, son of Dewey Phillips mediately. To everyone’s surprise, except Dewey’s, the ratings of his Red, Hot, and Blue program sky-

rocketed. It went from a 15 minute show to an hour‐long show in a matter of months—then it was two hours, then three. The audiences just couldn’t get enough of Daddy O Dewey, as he came to be known. The popularity of the show and its eccentric host were enough to quiet the fears of most advertisers. Dewey had a golden touch. The station appointed “babysitters” to help curb some of Dewey’s more sensational on air antics, and Red, Hot, and Blue was a runaway success beyond the management’s wildest dreams. They had one of the hottest shows in radio history on their hands, but there was something else going on—something they couldn’t have anticipated. While it was geared toward African American audiences, the station quickly became aware that Red, Hot and Blue was attracting a younger demographic. Kids, both black and white, were tuning in to hear Daddy O Dewey Phillips. They loved the music, and they loved his show. The records Phillips played became bestsellers all around the Midsouth, and the catch phrases he used on the air could be heard everywhere around town. Suddenly, white kids were openly buying “race music” at the record stores, and black kids were quoting a hillbilly deejay from McNairy County. The social landscape was shifting underfoot, and Dewey Phillips was at the center of a small cultural revolution which was quickly gaining momentum. Prior to the height of the civil rights movement, not everyone thought all of this was a good sign, but Dewey really didn’t care. He was, by then, a regular at many of the Beale Street clubs, where he was welcomed by black artists and audiences alike as a champion of the integrated airwaves. Beale was incredibly fertile ground, and Dewey befriended and played the records of many of the artists he met there. He had an incredible ear for talent and gave equal air time to any record that made the cut. There were only two kinds of music with Dewey: the kind worth listening to and the other kind. On any given show, you might hear an eclectic mix of Hank Williams, B.B. King, Les Paul & Mary Ford, Howlin’ Wolf, Hank Snow, Muddy Waters, Patti Page and Fats Domino. Dewey didn’t see people or music in terms of race, and the favor was usually returned. Perhaps legendary Memphis entertainer, Rufus Thomas, said it best when he observed, “Dewey had no color.” Little did anyone know, everything was about to change. Another of Dewey’s fans and friends was a little known Union Avenue record producer named Sam Phillips. Sam had just cut a track with a 19-year-old Memphis truck driver, and he wanted Dewey to hear it. Dewey was uncharacteristically quiet and contemplative as he listened to the record, but definitely wanted two copies to play on the show. The next day, he dropped the needle on Elvis Presley’s “That’s Alright (Mama),” and the Phillips boys stepped into history. Dewey had just introduced the world to the music of Elvis Presley, and later that same day, he introduced Elvis Presley to the world through his first on air interview. In the course of the discussion, he slyly asked Elvis to provide some biographical information. When the unsuspecting young artist revealed that he had attended Humes High, an all white school, it was the dawn of a new era in popular music. You see, most of the listening audience assumed that Elvis was a black artist. If the social landscape had been slowly shifting under Dewey Phillip’s influence, this was an earthquake. Phillips went on to debut the recordings of other Sun artists such as Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis. He interviewed, broadcasted and molded the careers of countless others, both black and white. The list reads like a who’s who of mid-twentieth century popular music, making him one of the most influential figures in the history of American broadcasting. While Cleveland deejay Alan Freed was still playing classical music on the radio, Dewey Phillips was broadcasting R&B tunes to a largely segregated society across the Midsouth. Before Dick Clark and American Bandstand, Dewey Phillips was the first to introduce television audiences to R&B and Rock and Roll, through his groundbreaking WHBQ show, Pop Shop. Perhaps the most famous radio personality in history, Wolfman Jack, was eleven years old when Dewey first went on the air. All of these owe a great debt to the groundbreaking efforts of Dewey Phillips. To say he was a pioneer would be a gross understatement. In the ten years between 1950 and 1960, Dewey Phillips virtually invented what it meant to be an American broadcast personality. As if all this were not enough, the Tony Award winning Broadway musical, Memphis, is based on the career of none other than Dewey Phillips. Though the musical may take some artistic license with Phillips’ personal life, it is spot‐on when it comes to his attitudes about the power of music to elevate people and transcend hatred. Phillips believed that music was a great equalizer. He thought a good song—and for that matter, the artist who made it—should be judged on its own merits instead of preconceived notions of race or social order. This simple conviction was maintained under considerable social pressure and often at great personal expense, but he always stuck to his guns. Because of it, Dewey Phillips helped change hearts and minds, and in so doing, the very course of American music and culture. It’s probably true that Dewey never thought too much about all of this. He was just being Dewey. But in the end, being Dewey was enough.

It’s almost football time in Tennessee By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer

It is almost that magical time of year when many of us in West Tennessee get a little rowdy toward the weekends. Football season is almost here. Every fall, almost every member in this community starts getting excited and the anticipation starts. It normally begins with talking about last season. The set backs, the awesome plays, the horrible refs that we will probably get again this year, and the changes that are going to be made this year. On the professional level, we look at the Titans to see how the draft picks are doing, who we picked up in the free agent market, and whether that quarterback will be able to play the level we want him to. On the college side of the ball, this is where the conversation can get really heated. Fans from teams all around the South Eastern Conference live here in this community, and it can be a touchy subject talking bad about another’s team. Looking at the Volunteers, it is the same story we have seen the last few years. A new coach, a strong recruiting class and tons of potential, but can they live up to the hype and the pressure that we put them under? This year’s Tennessee team will be one to watch, but who knows how the ball might fall?

‘This one counts’ MLB’S All-Stars By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer

It is that time of year once again. The votes are in, the rosters are almost finalized and it is time for the midsummer classic. Major League Baseball’s All-Star game has been a tradition since the early 1930’s and has been a source of league pride ever since. Originally the game was only played for bragging rights, since the two leagues did not play each other in the regular season. Since then, and with the introduction of inter-league play, the game has lost some of its importance. Many of the players began to choose not to participate for fear of injury, and others simply did not play as hard because the game had no meaning. Changes have been made to make the game more exciting and so that it would have an impact on the rest of

the season. Going with the theme “This one counts,” the MLB now gives home field advantage in the World Series to the winner of the mid-season showdown. Is home field advantage really that big of a deal? The answer is simply yes. Yes, it does. If the series is extended past the minimum of four games, it can be a big advantage being able to play those important and exciting games at home. The fans have more influence on these games than they realize. Although it is the American League who has dominated the game over the past decade, it is the National League, who has won the last three All-Star games in a row and holds the overall lead 43-38. This year looks to be exciting, with the veterans still playing to form and the young guys coming in and changing the game as we know it. This should be good.

Beware the summer heat By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer Summer time is here in full force, and the heat is turning up. This is a time to be concerned about anyone who may be outside. Heat is one of those silent killers that many of us forget about, and during this time of year when most of us are outside it is something that we need to be aware of in order to be safe during these hot months. During these hot months, especially in this area where the humidity is also high, the body’s ability to cool itself is greatly affected. When a person heats up too rapidly, the body is unable to cool itself off in the proper way. That combined with too much fluid loss due to inadequate hydration, can cause heat related illness. Some of these heat related illnesses include heat cramps, heat exhaustion, or even heat stroke. With the heat cramps, which is the

lesser of the three, most of the time simply drinking water and getting in a cool place to allow the body to cool down is the best first aid for the situation. With the others, however, they can be much more serious and require more medical attention. Heat exhaustion is a more serious matter than heat cramps, but it is still early enough that a person can take the proper steps and avoid a very serious problem. When looking for heat exhaustion, you can look for the following signs: heavy sweating, weakness, cool pale skin, weak pulse, possible muscle cramps, dizziness, nausea and vomiting and fainting. But, it is possible to still have a normal body temperature. If you witness these symptoms in a person, it is again best to get the victim into a cooler environment and work on getting the body temperature down. You should also remove or loosen the victims clothing and apply

Coaches Corner: Coach Rennard Woodmore By Brian Azevedo

others, but one thing for sure is that he will be giving one hundred percent all year long.

Sports Writer

Coach Rennard Woodmore is getting ready for his seventh year at Adamsville High School, and he has plans for the future. Coach Woodmore came to Adamsville after playing baseball in college and really brought a charge to both the football and baseball programs at the school. “I had goals set for my career,” said Woodmore. “It took a lot of hard work and the help from some great players, but today some of those goals have been met.” Woodmore, who is the defensive coordinator for Adamsville, has had state championship experience when he was in high school. Now he looks to help move the Cardinals into that same class and bring home a state title to McNairy County. “We got to the game last year,” said Woodmore. “That gave us all the motivation we need to get there again. The players and coaching staff all know what it takes to play at that level, and we are determined to make it back and finish what we started.” This spring will also be Woodmore’s second season as head coach of the Adamsville baseball team. Woodmore saw his first season with the team end in the district tournament, but only losing two seniors they should be better this season. “We have a lot of players coming back on the baseball field,” said Woodmore. “We are looking to improve on what we did last season. We have to hit better situationally and get in the weight room to be better prepared for our tough district.” Woodmore has met some goals and is still chasing

caution in moving victims, and do not give the victims fluids. Wait until emergency personnel arrive. Playing sports and strenuous activity outside are two of the main causes of heat related illness, but those are not the only causes. Simply leaving a child or pet in the car while going into the store can result in serious problems. According to the National Weather Service, with an outside temperature of 80 degrees, the inside of a vehicle can reach up to 123 degrees in just an hour of elapsed time. We always have to be aware of this danger and never leave pets or children in vehicles. Stay cool, take breaks, and watch out for each other, and we will be able to make it though another hot Tennessee summer without injury or worse.

Rapada is currently wrestling under the moniker of “The Joker.” This will be a great opportunity to come and see Jerry and have a chance to visit with Lawler since suffering a heart attack live on RAW last year. Since then, Lawler has made a full recovery and is back traveling a full time schedule again. A legendary Memphis wrestling star, Lawler has sold out more arenas throughout the mid south than any other wrestler. Also featured on this big night of action is US Heavyweight Champion Matt Boyce defending his title against the number one contender, Sexy C. Area favorite Steve O will collide with Zack Hartnell, and Super Brown will meet Dell Tucker. Plus two more matches. “This is the biggest show we have ever brought to Selmer,” said Promoter Bert Prentice. “With the air conditioned Jaycees Building and the atmosphere in there, it has that old time wrestling arena feel. It is just something special”. Advance tickets are available at B&B Auto Sales in Selmer. USA Wrestling is well known for being the most family friendly wrestling company in the mid south. Lawler will be signing autographs and meeting fans during the evening as well.

Heat stroke can be a very deadly situation if you do not know what to look for. An altered mental state, possible throbbing headache, confusion, nausea, dizziness, shallow breathing, high body temperature (106 degrees or higher), hot dry skin, rapid pulse, and possible unconsciousness are all symptoms of a heat stroke. If a person is showing any or all of these symptoms, immediate medical attention is required. If waiting on emergency personnel to arrive, there are steps to take to help prevent permanent damage. Move the victim to a cooler air-conditioned environment and reduce the body temperature with a water mister and a fan or sponging. Use extreme

Nowadays, there is nothing that our smart phones cannot do. Now they can even help you become a better fisherman. Most of us know that when it comes to fishing, conditions are everything. The water levels, water temperature, bait fish present, Ph levels everything matters. Well, now there is an app available on iPhone and Android that will help answer some of those questions. By downloading the new app from the Tennessee Valley Authority, any fisherman can get all the information on any lake in the TVA system. Barkley, Bear Creak, Wilson, Wolf Creek, and yes Pickwick are all constantly updated with water levels from both sides of the dams, and average discharge of water which directly influences how strong the current will be all throughout the river. This is a free app offered by the TVA, and it is something that every fisherman in the state should have in their “tackle box” before going after those record setting fish.

Tennessee needs your help finding fish By Brian Azevedo Sports Writer

People are always looking for an edge. Any information that they can get their hands on to make their chances better on the lake, they will take it. Fishermen have long relied on word of mouth to know where the fish are, what they are biting and the conditions on the lakes and rivers. Well, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and their B.I.T.E (Bass Information from Tournament Entries) program are here to provide some of that information, but they need help from the fishermen themselves. Tennessee fishermen and bass clubs can help themselves and the TWRA by participating in a program designed to improve management of black bass populations statewide. Reservoir bass fisheries are one of Tennessee’s most important recreational resources. Surveys of reservoir anglers identify black bass as the most sought after sport fish in the Volunteer State. The TWRA solicits bass tournament data from bass clubs and tournament organizations for tournaments that are held on Tennessee reservoirs. This collected data is recorded in the B.I.T.E. program.

Participating clubs receive an annual report that provides them summaries on catch statistics, such as the average sizes of bass weighed in, the hours it takes to catch a fivepound bass, catch rates by number and pound, and more. For instance, in 2009, the average weight of bass was 2.56 pounds and average hours to catch a bass five pounds or greater was 126. Average catch rates were 1.81 bass and 4.62 pounds per 10 hours of fishing. State fisheries biologists use the data, along with other sampling data, to document trends in bass populations that lead to appropriate management actions. The Agency needs the support of every bass club and organization in Tennessee to make the program a success. If you are a tournament angler, urge your tournament director to submit your club’s tournament results. Bass clubs choosing to participate in B.I.T.E. may submit their tournament data via the online reporting system or a downloadable report card which can be printed, filled out, and mailed to TWRA. Scroll down for links to these and other information. If you prefer, post-paid tournament report cards can be mailed to you for submitting your club’s data. For more information, or to request post-paid tournament report cards, please contact the TWRA Fisheries Management Division at (615) 781-6575.

Bobcats to Wildcats

football From Page 1B

Then we get into the games that touch us all, cheering for the red and white or blue and gold. It is time for Cardinal and Bobcat football once again. The Bobcats are in the second year with head coach Charlie Dampeer and are looking to improve on the season they had a year ago. With some returning starters and new talent coming up out of the jr high ranks, the team should be stronger than last season. On the other side of the county in Redbird country, the Cardinals only have one goal on their mind, a state championship. After a historic season last year, the Cardinals were eliminated in the state championship game against Friendship Christian. Adamsville is fired up and ready to take another run at state, and it should be an exciting trip for the fans as well. So get excited, get the tailgating equipment ready and get prepared to cheer on your favorite team. From the high schools right down the road to the colleges of the south and the guys who get paid to play the game, they all need your support, and they all love to hear fans cheering at the games.

Tennessee student honored at National SkillsUSA Championships for Skilled Workforce Students from  Tennessee high school and college technical education programs won the  nation’s highest awards at the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills  Conference. Industry leaders representing over 1,100 businesses, corporations, trade associations and unions recognized the students for their demonstrated excellence in 98 hands-on occupational and leadership contests, such as robotics, criminal justice, aviation maintenance and public speaking. All contests are designed, run and judged by industry using industry standards. Top student winners received gold, silver and bronze medallions. Many also received prizes such as tools of their trade and/or scholarships to further their careers and education. The SkillsUSA Championships is for  high school and college-level students who are members of SkillsUSA. In addition, high scorers in the contests received Skill Point Certificates. The Skill Point Certificate was awarded in 86 occupational  and leadership areas to students who achieved a high score defined by  industry. The SkillsUSA Championships have been a premier event since 1967. The Skill Point Certificates were introduced in 2009 as a component of the SkillsUSA Work Force Ready System. The following student from your area is a Skill Point Certificate recipient: William Russom, from Stantonville and a student at Tennessee Tech Center @  Crump (Crump), was awarded the college/postsecondary silver medal in Technical Drafting.

Apostolic:

“Over 6,000 students from every state in the nation came to compete in the  SkillsUSA Championships this week,” said SkillsUSA Executive Director Tim  Lawrence. “This is the SkillsUSA partnership at its best. Students, instructors and industries are working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce and every student excels. These students prove that career and technical education expands opportunities.” According to the U.S. Department of Education, students who take three or  more career and technical education (CTE)programs in high school are more  likely to attend college and stay there to graduate. In fact, 79% of CTE  concentrators enrolled in postsecondary education within two years of high school graduation. And, students in CTE programs have a higher-than-average high school graduation rate. Research has shown the  average high school graduation rate for students concentrating in CTE  programs is 90% compared to an average national freshman graduation rate of 74.9%. Industry support of the SkillsUSA Championships is valued at over $36  million in donated time, equipment, cash and material. All contests are  run and judged by industry experts using industry standards for  employment. Contests assess hands-on, employability and academic skills. Over 1,700 industry judges and technical committee members participated this year. The SkillsUSA Work Force Ready System was developed

as an extension of the SkillsUSA mision and supported by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
