Independent Appeal selmer mayoral debate
Local man’s incredible 45-year journey from child soldier to American Citizen By Christen Coulon Managing Editor
Thursday, Sept. 26 at 7 pm
I would like to ask all of our readers to imagine for one second that you are someone else. You were born in Germany, in 1936. The Third Reich is on the rise, and the world is about to be thrown into chaos as World War II looms on the horizon. Of course, as a small child you have no frame of reference to measure the geo-political climate of that time. As an elementary school student you are told that yourself, along with most of the other boys you know are now members of the Hitler Youth. As part of this organization, you must attend mandatory meetings where you are trained to shoot and handle weapons. You are trained to march, in step, and you are taught that one day you may be asked to fight and die for your nation. Fast forward several years to 1945. You are nine-years-old, and after years of war, foreign invaders; Americans, British and Russians are literally at the doorsteps. Germany; your home and the only nation you have ever known, the land you have been taught to love is crumbling. What would you do? Es ist noch nicht aller Tage Abend. (“Things could still turn out OK.”) -German Idiom. For V.R. “Mike” Mitchell, who recently made Selmer his home, this was his life. After weeks away from home at a training site for fellow Hitler Youth members, Mitchell did what any incredibly brave nine-year-old would have done. He resigned from the Hitler Youth and joined the German Army. Mitchell’s recently shared the story of his one-day military career as a soldier in the German Army which began in mid-1945 with a trip to a recruiting office. “I told the officer that I wanted to join the Army,” Mitchell said. Mitchell recalls that the officer laughed and told him that kids were not hired for fighting. However, Mitchell said that for the first time he could remember he lied. He told the officer he was 16. The German Army at the time was in desperate need of soldiers, so the officer just shrugged and handed Mitchell a piece of paper and told him to sign.

Owners Jimmy Max Pettigrew and Kay Pettigrew pose at Pettigrew Rexall Drugs in Adamsville last Monday in commemoration of its 50th year in business. John F. Kennedy was president when Pettigrew Rexall Drugs opened its doors on Sept. 26, 1963. After Jimmy Max graduated pharmacy school at the University of Tennessee at Memphis, the Pettigrews knew they wanted to come back to Adamsville to live and start a business. “It is with great pleasure that Pettigrew Drugs announces our 50th anniversary. We would like to thank you for your continued trust and loyalty. We truly value the strong customer relationship we have built for the past five decades. It has been an honor caring for you and your family through the years and we hope to continue to remain a part of this wonderful community,” Kay said. “My motto has always been, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ I have always tried to do that. That works in life and business,” Kay said when asked about the secret of their success.

Broomcorn draws thousands despite soggy start By Christen Coulon Managing Editor
The 18th annual Broomcorn Festival filled the Selmer City Park last Saturday. Dozens of artisans, vendors and musicians came out despite the wet start to the festi-
val and floods which covered much of the event area. This year’s festival was coordinated as a partnership between the McNairy Regional Alliance and Arts in McNairy. The two civic organizations paired up to run this year’s event to help the event’s founder,
RE-ELECT DAVID ROBINSON MAYOR OF SELMER
Jack Martin, who is dealing with an illness in the family. Russell Ingle, director of chamber programs for the MRA said that the weather did not affect turn out at this year’s festival. The clouds and rain cleared up as the festival started and Ingle said that as many as 2,000 people were in attendance for the event. Everyone seemed to take the weather
in stride, with some of the vendors poking fun at the floods posting signs offering fishing and a wishing well around the flooded areas of the park. Martin was in attendance at the event and said that he was happy with the turnout. “We have had this festival for 18 years and this is not the first time we have had weather to deal with,” Martin said.
I have genuinely enjoyed the last eight years as Mayor of Selmer and can say honestly that I remain as committed and enthusiastic as ever as I look toward a third term. Here are my GOALS for the next term: •Remain financially strong. Maintain or improve our high credit ratings through prudent control of budgets and spending. •Promote a well-educated, well-trained local workforce as we strive to attract new industry to Selmer/McNairy County. Work with UTM McNairy and the Technology Center at Crump to encourage expansion of relevant fields of study.
Mayor David Robinson
•Continue working with McNairy Regional Alliance, the Joint Economic Development Board, and Selmer/McNairy County Industrial Development Board to seek out opportunities for new and expanded local corporate businesses. •Continue improving existing city infrastructures: repave the remainder of city streets, continue upgrade of water and sewer system, upgrade Martin Camp Hill water tank facility and expansion of Selmer WiFi. •Continue to support community development and tourism by promoting the efforts of Arts in McNairy (AiM) and the Chamber of Commerce. •Continue expanding activities and services for our youth and senior citizens through the Parks & Recreation Department and Selmer Senior Center.

•Complete stabilization of City Park creek banks, installation of emergency generators at water plants, and purchase of two new fire vehicles using disaster grant money already awarded. •Pursue conversion of city vehicles to natural gas. •Continue strengthening partnership with McNairy County Solid Waste Department to take recycling op portunities to the next level. •Develop our new downtown Dixie Park using LPRF grants. •Promote downtown as a venue for events and festivals. Continue aesthetic improvements of our historic downtown area with a 3rd mural.
We should be able to accomplish most of these goals fairly easily; others may prove more challenging and require strategic planning to achieve. All of them build on foundations we have already set in place during the last eight years.

Minor injured in car accident By Christen Coulon Managing Editor
A 14-year-old pedestrian was seriously injured Sept. 15 after being struck by a vehicle on W. Cherry Avenue in Selmer. According to the crash report provided by the Selmer Police Department, the pedestrian stumbled into the road before being struck by a 2006 Chevy Malibu which was driven by a 16-year-old minor with two 15-year-old passengers traveling with them in the vehicle. The investigating officer, Sgt. Teddy Roberts, stated in the report that the pedestrian appeared to be under the influence of both alcohol and drugs at the time of the incident. “The pedestrian was standing at the cor-
ner of Elm and U.S. Highway 64 (W. Cherry Avenue) engaging in conversation with two males in a vehicle, not involved (in the accident),” Roberts said in his report. “The pedestrian sprinted forward into the traffic lane and was struck by (the) vehicle.” Following the accident, the pedestrian was transported to McNairy Regional Hospital and then to LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis. The extent of their injuries are not known at this time. The report states that the driver was not in compliance with a restriction on their license and that charges are pending in the accident. It is this publication’s policy not to mention the name of minors involved in accidents.

Despite a redoubled effort by the Selmer Jaycees to rebuild the county fair, bad luck plagued the event for a second straight year. This year’s event faced closures and cancellations which impacted the turnout and profit at the event. The fair which ran Sept. 16 through last Saturday, had to close the midway two of the five nights and an apparent dispute over prize money forced the cancellation of last Thursday’s demolition derby; the fair’s signature event. Midway closures on Sept. 16 and last Friday were due to a late arrival of the carnival company and heavy rains which fell throughout the day last Friday.
· Palpitations may feel like a rapid heart rhythm, irregular heartbeat, or skipped beats · Swelling of your ankles, feet, or abdomen called edema · Rapid weight gain – fluid weight gain of two or three pounds in one day is possible YOU MAY HAVE NO SYMPTOMS AT ALL AND HAVE SEVERE VALVE DISEASE THAT REQUIRES TREATMENT. Regular check-ups with your doctor can diagnose heart valve disorders.

Selmer park gets $52,000 walking trail grant By Jeff Whitten
be a better place for people to live and enjoy their lives here in Selmer and McNairy County. This trail has been here for a while and somebody decided many, many years ago that it would be a great idea to build the trail and so you’ve been utilizing it for years and years but now we’re going to have an opportunity through this grant to make it even better,” Hill said. “We’re proud to be here and participate in this event today. We like communities that think that way,” Hill added. This is an opportunity to participate in Gov. Bill Haslam’s Healthier Tennessee initiative, Hill explained. Haslam announced this initiative two or three weeks ago, Hill said. The initiative encourages people to go outside and be active. This will create a healthier population in Tennessee. “We do lag behind in several areas of healthfulness in the State of Tennessee,” Hill said. Statistically, our state is almost last in several categories, Hill noted. “It’s really important that all of us make a special effort to get outside and move. Now you’re going to have a great trail—much improved, that you can get out and walk, run, maybe ride your bikes, whatever you want to do and stay active and make a much healthier community in Selmer. Thank you everybody for being here. We appreciate everybody’s participation,” Hill said. RTP is a federal program administered by the Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration. Funds come from the Federal Highway Trust Fund and represent a portion of the motor excise fuel tax on non-highway recreational fuel use from such things as all-terrain vehicles. These funds are for recreational trails and off-trail facilities.

Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Commissioner Brock Hill presented the City of Selmer with a $52,000 Recreational Trails Program grant check last Wednesday. The money will be used to widen the walking trail at the city park. The third time was a charm for the city, which partnered with the county on this year’s application. County Mayor Ronnie Brooks, Selmer Mayor David Robinson, Parks and Recreation Director Sybil Dancer, Selmer Aldermen John Smith and John Finlayson, McNairy Regional Alliance Director of Chamber Programs Russell Ingle, other community leaders, and teachers and students from Selmer Elementary School were on hand for the occasion. “We’re proud to be here. We certainly are very appreciative of this grant and the ones we’ve had in the past. We hope you’ll just keep bringing them our way,” Robinson said. “This is a great crowd to be here today. How many of you walk around this track? Well, guess what, this track is going to be much wider,” Brooks said. After the repaving is done, the track will be six feet wider, Brooks said. “It’s so appropriate that we have young people and students from the school system that are all here today. So this is about today, this announcement, but it is also about the future of your community. You’re obviously going to play a big role in the future of this community as it continues to grow and prosper and
PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN FROM PAGE 1A
When asked about training, Mitchell said that he received none. He literally walked into the office as a civilian and walked out a soldier. “I was just given a Bazooka and told ‘you are a soldier.”’ From there, Mitchell was placed on a train bound for Berlin and put into a trench with a few other soldiers. There he was given a rifle because the Bazooka was too heavy for him to carry. War was all around. Bullets and grenades were lobbed at their trench and Mitchell said he fired into the air in vain a few times during the barrage to keep up appearances with his fellow soldiers. After about an hour, things got quiet. Mitchell turned to see that a heavily armed American soldier was taking them prisoner. Mitchell said he was very afraid. He said that the fear was exacerbated by the fact that the soldier was AfricanAmerican, a group which the German government at that time held in very low regard Mitchell’s fear, however, quickly turned to admiration as his captor brought him to a barracks room filled with other Americans. Instead of anger, the American troops showed him kindness. Mitchell said he was given chocolates, candy, cakes and many other good things to eat. Mitchell compared his capture to heaven after living on small rations for months and spending a day in a trench. He even said that a cultural misunderstanding led to a moment of comic relief when the Americans gave him chewing gum. Having never seen gum before, he promptly took the gum, chewed it briefly, and swallowed it. “Since I’d never seen or heard of it, like a very scared, but good kid; I put it in my mouth and chewed it three or four times and swallowed it with great difficultly.” Mitchell said this made the Americans laugh like crazy. A short time later, he said that the Americans sent him back to his own lines with a sign, written in German, around his neck that read, “We don’t fight against children.” As Mitchell made his way through no man’s land between the German and American lines, he could hear bullets being fired in his direction and realized they were coming from the German lines. In a moment of epiphany, Mitchell came to a realiza-

would not realize his dream of American citizenship. One of Mitchell’s sons who was studying chirography in Davenport, Iowa ended up marrying an American. In addition to gaining a new family member, the marriage now meant that Mitchell had a sponsor. Finally in 1991, after more than 45-years, Mitchell moved to America. He settled in Peoria, Ill. where he found work in film production and met the love of his life, Mardee McClean. The two decided on a move to West Tennessee during a recent trip to the area and made McNairy County their home this summer. Mitchell’s story is not that of a soldier; he was a soldier for just one day. His story is that of a dreamer who set a goal and made it a reality even though it took 45 years. “That is the most important part; the fact that it took me years on end to get into the U.S., to finally be happy within the U.S. and to live as an American,” Mitchell said.

tion which would change the rest of his life. “I realized that the bullets I heard came from the front of me and not a single one came from my rear where the Americans were,” Mitchell said. “I stopped and suddenly became aware, I wanted to live in the U.S. of A.” After the ordeal of being stuck between the two lines, Mitchell finally did make it back to his own lines, however minutes later he was struck in the knee by a bullet or piece of shrapnel. He was sent to the hospital and released from duty shortly after. Mitchell has no medals or photos to mark his one-day career in the German Army. A 68-year old scar marking the point where a bullet or piece of shrapnel tore through his knee is his only memento of that life-changing day. Weeks later, the war ended and Mitchell moved on. He returned home, grew up and became a man, but he never forgot his day as a soldier, or the kindness of the American soldiers he met. Mitchell went on to work as an auto mechanic and continued living in Germany for more than a decade. However, he never gave up on his boyhood dream of becoming an American citizen. Mitchell applied for citizenship, but did not have a sponsor and was never able to obtain the necessary paperwork. In the late 1950’s, he moved one step closer to his dream when he was allowed to move to Canada. Mitchell said that he liked living in Canada, but it still wasn’t the United States. For a time, it looked like he

The third time is not the charm: Burglar steals dogs from Selmer residence
INDEPENDENT APPEAL v PAGE 5A
Citgo owner beats fake drug rap By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
Burglars seem to just love Debra McAnally’s residence; because they sure spend a lot of time there. Last Wednesday, was the third break in there since Dec. 2012. McAnally told Patrolman Bob Pipkins that someone gained entry to her house by pulling the screen door off a bathroom window and raising the window, which was not locked, according to an incident report provided by the Selmer Police Department. The burglar ransacked the place, pulling out drawers, going through kitchen cabinets, pulling things out of closets, scattering papers and clothes over the residence and opening her laptop, leaving it on the floor. Nothing was missing from the residence, but two brown Chihuahua feist mixed lab puppies that were in a dog house under the carport were gone. Nothing was taken in any of the two previous break ins, either. The break ins have terrorized McAnally and her family, though. “I am so tired of my kids being terrified to sleep in their own home. Help me make this city and area aware of break ins please,” McAnally said in an email to the Independent Appeal. There were no suspects at the time the police report was filed. Anyone with information about this crime should call the Selmer Police Department at 645-7907.
Synthetic drug charges against Selmer Citgo Flash Market owner Arif A. Almudhala have been dismissed, according to the Tennessee Court Information System. Almudhala did, however, plead guilty to simple possession/casual exchange of a controlled substance and was granted a judicial diversion. This means if he refrains from similar activities for a period of time, this charge will be dismissed. When arrested for production, manufacture or distribution of salvina divinorum (synthetic marijuana), Almudhala was found to be in possession of some pills that were a controlled substance for which he did not have a prescription, according to Assistant District Attorney General Bob Gray. Lab results indicated that the substance seized from Almudhala in April was not covered by the law against synthetic marijuana. Almudhala was also cited for synthetic marijuana in 2011. He pleaded guilty and was granted a judicial diversion upon payment of a $500 fine and court costs. A judicial diversion allows charges to be dropped if the defendant refrains from the activity he was charged with for a period of time. These charges were dismissed. The possession of synthetic marijuana was a misdemeanor in 2011 but was changed by the state legislature to a felony the following year. The Selmer Beer Board revoked the Citgo’s beer license in June because of Almudhala’s April arrest. The Citgo is currently closed.

Arrest made in Adamsville burglary case By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
An arrest has been made in a burglary in Adamsville’s Twelve Oaks subdivision, according to Police Chief Jerry Christopher. At press time, Christopher had not released the name of the person arrested. On Sept. 2, Officer Ricky Howell was dispatched to Twelve Oaks Drive to a break-in with a theft. The owner said she had been out of town and upon returning, she found the back door open and food strewn over the floor and in general, the house had been ransacked. Property valued at more than $5,000 was missing including an Ipad Model # DMPJ462DFHW, a tennis bracelet, a class ring, an iPhone, a blue/white sapphire gold ring and an air rifle. The crime is still under investigation.
Eastview awards walking trail bid

Famed local businessman Tom Hendrix displays an official proclamation from the Tennessee Senate recognizing his years of success running Henco Furniture in Selmer. The proclamation was signed by Speaker of the Senate Ron Ramsey and 26th District Senator Dolores Gresham. Hendrix closed the doors of his unique store recently and is now focusing on writing his autobiography.
Independent Appeal Candidates:
Eastview awarded the bid to repave the walking trail at the city park to Redmon Asphalt at the Sept. 17 meeting of the Board of Aldermen. Redman bid $14,000 for 1.5 inches of asphalt and $17,000 for 2 inches. Under both options, the width of the track would be five or six feet. Since the bid did not specify if the depth was compacted or not, the board asked Mayor Jessie Robbins to clarify this point and authorized him to accept the $14,000 bid for compacted asphalt and the $17,000 bid for non-compacted asphalt. Redmon’s bid was the only one submitted. “If it’s 1.5 inches before compacting, it won’t be very much,” Alderman Elvis Butler said.

Mayor and Aldermen sworn in at Michie meeting By Janet Rail Publisher
In the midst of a crowded room, City Attorney Paul Simpson swore in newly elected Mayor Anthony Smith and Aldermen Robert Dunn and Jay Poindexter in Michie. Boy Scout Troop 231 was in attendance at the meeting. “You all are just getting started and need to understand that public service is one of the highest callings. Pay close attention when I swear in the mayor and aldermen as this if a great responsibility and you should learn how to be a public servant,” said Simpson. Just prior to the swearing in, Mayor David Baker made his final address to the group telling everyone how much he enjoyed serving the community. “There are two employees in the office and two in the plant that are doing a really good job,” said Baker. Under his leadership and past Alderman Jim Merry, the board developed a Parks and Recreation Department which was spearheaded by local citizens has sponsored five or six events for the community and had over 70 people at the most recent movie in the park event, despite it being moved to a local church due to rain. “Thank you to Jim Merry for serving seven years and David Baker for his 12
years of service. I give a challenge that we all get along good. I have a lot of ideas I want to work on that I think you will like to show off our town and honor our school,” said Smith. The board elected Jeb Baker as Vice Mayor. They discussed the drive through window at city hall still having issues after a repairman spent two days working on it. “I don’t know what it will cost and you set $1,000 for the repair,” said City Recorder Janice Durbin. The board opted to attempt to repair the door once more and call them with any additional costs. Roger Jenkins, water dept. manager, shared a rating of 100 on an August 29 sanitary survey of the waterworks system completed by Vaughn Duncan, state department of environment and conservation. “I believe my staff was more proud than me. I am proud of my staff and thank the mayor and aldermen,” said Jenkins. Jenkins also reported that construction on the water department started last Monday and will be finished in January 2014.

TO THE CITIZENS OF SELMER
Re: City of Selmer Employees’ Insurance
Staff Photo by Brian Azevedo
A head-on collision east of Adamsville last Thursday afternoon left two people injured. The accident occurred in the left turn lane in the center of Highway 64 just outside the Adamsville city limits in Hardin County when a Dodge Stratus driven by Kyle Hardy collided with a Chevy Silverado driven by Dena Milford. Hardy was airlifted from the scene and Milford was transported to the Hardin Medical Center.
Perhaps you are wondering why I have chosen to discuss insurance. I believe that by telling you where I stand on this issue will give you some insight into what type of alderman I would make. Several weeks ago, an insurance proposal was brought to the aldermen that had the potential to save the taxpayers of Selmer thousands of dollars. After some discussion, the aldermen agreed to allow their city attorney, Terry Abernathy, to enlist an impartial consultant to look at what we now have and compare it to the proposed policy that allegedly could save the city thousands of dollars in insurance costs. At the last city meeting that impartial consultant’s name was presented but tabled by three members of the Selmer Board of Aldermen. Namely, they were John Smith, Paul Simpson, and Edward Smith. My concern, as a candidate for alderman and a taxpayer of Selmer, is why would an impartial person not be allowed to at least voice his opinion? After all, we are talking about taxpayer’s money. Why do we not want to run the City of Selmer as a business instead of the “good old boy” mentality? I would have voted to hear the comparison and then draw my conclusion. I will always be on the side of the taxpayer. Thank you for taking time to read my remarks.

McNAIRY VOICES Do you think Alabama will win its third national college football championship this season? Why?
By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
It is not easy being a successful small business government contractor these days. After meeting with management and workers from a large business in the consumer market, GE Monogram, U. S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn met with the owners of MAS Components & Coatings, in Selmer Aug. 22 during her Selmer visit. MAS was presented with the Rising Star and Most Successful Small Business in Government Contracting awards by the Tennessee Small Business Development Center in July. Co-owners Judi and Larry Mashburn and a son and a daughter were on hand to talk about the challenges their business faces. Their largest customer is the U. S. government. They make replacement parts for B-52 bombers and C-130 transport planes. As much success as their company has had, the past year has been a challenging time due to sequestration, or automatic cuts to the federal budget. “We would like to expand,” Larry said. “We’ve been looking at avenues to expand but this year, especially, has been rough because the contracts just have not been coming. A lot of budgets were cut,” said son Larry II. “We’ve spent thousands of dollars trying to expand and bring jobs to McNairy County. Now we have to regroup because there’s no money out there. I know there is but there’s none for the little guy,” Larry said. MAS had tried to expand into the cartridge cases market, but had problems getting support from local banks, though they did get support from the United States Department of Agriculture, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the state. They had letters of intent but no orders, Judi explained. One area MAS will not be expanding into is drones. “We don’t have the technology to put into the new drones. It’s already being developed by other aviation companies. The big boys are out there and they’re looking for people to sub (contract), but we don’ t have the technology to put into the new drones. We don’t have the engineers on hand who can design and develop and compete with places like Raytheon, Boeing and Lockheed,” Larry II said. Rather MAS is seen by the government as the analog technology company, Judi observed. “It’s the older way, but it’s the cheaper way and they’re coming back to us,” Judi said. The federal government wants to keep legacy parts going rather than do the expensive research and development on new parts, according to Judi. “We’ve talked to the buyers; We’ve talked to the airbases and they have the need for it,” Judi said about the old technology. However, demand is not always translating into orders at this time. “We’re getting a lot of talk, a lot of calls, a lot of emails. They just won’t put the orders out...Unfortunately, sequestration came in out there last year and everything kind of went, ‘poof’. We’re looking at different avenues,” Judi said. Blackburn said she stopped by to congratulate MAS. “When we don’t take time to appreciate our small companies, that’s when we’re in trouble in cities, counties and states. Small business is the backbone of our country and we appreciate you,” Blackburn’s Field Representative Johnny Blakely said.

U.S. Rep. Blackburn fights regulation By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
Officials from Monogram and GE found a sympathetic ear in U. S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn when they described regulations as one of the challenges they face. Blackburn, County Mayor Ronnie Brooks, Selmer Mayor David Robinson and McNairy Regional Alliance Executive Director Ted Moore met with managers from these companies and toured the Selmer plant on Aug. 22. One of the managers said that by next year, the Environmental Protection Agency will require each refrigerator manufactured to be 10 to 15 percent more energy efficient. He was skeptical of the necessity of the regulations. “Based on some new studies, your iPhone uses more electricity in your house than your refrigerator,” he said. Blackburn listed some other examples of regulations she opposed as unnecessary. She and other members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee are seeking to have the EPA stay some of these regulations. “We at Energy and Commerce are pushing to have the EPA stay some of these regulations because it is becoming counterproductive,” Blackburn said. “We recently had a dustup on that,” Blackburn said about ceiling fans. The EPA issued a 101 page rulemaking document proposing certain ceiling fan regulations. These regulations would reduce the number of blades from five to two or three, Blackburn said. “Anybody that’s ever had ceiling fans knows that five blades balances a fan. You’ve got to have at least four,” Blackburn said. The reduced number of blades would cause the fans to become noisy, Blackburn said. The regulations would also have required motion sensors in both the fan and lights. “If you walked into the room, the fan would come on. If
you exited the room, the fan would go off and the lights...Totally impractical. Fans in bedrooms wouldn’t work. We’re on them. It is one of the dumbest things plus it would drive the cost up through the roof,” Blackburn said. The fans with the embedded motion sensors would be about $1,000, Blackburn explained. Blackburn said that she and other committee members were putting pressure on the EPA about the Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards and ethanol fuel blend regulations. “You cannot continue to say you have to have higher miles per gallon on the CAFE standards, and at the same time, up the amount of ethanol that is put into gasoline and then you get less miles per gallon. You can’t do that. You’re working counterproductive,” Blackburn said. “I love it when I go home to Mississippi and I get real gas,” Blackburn joked as the audience chuckled. One of the managers said they were trying to educate the regulators who don’t make anything and didn’t understand manufacturing. “They’ve never had a job. They couldn’t do what you do. Most of them are academic. They work in theory and to them it sounds like this should be something that is workable. Practical application is something they haven’t participated in,” Blackburn interjected. One of the managers said that the regulations would save consumers $3 but would cost them $50 per refrigerator. “They just don’t make sense,” he said. Blackburn said she once asked a regulator if he performed cost-benefit analysis and he said no that he was focused on an outcome. “In the real world, that doesn’t work because actions have consequences,” Blackburn said. Over-regulation leads to higher costs, Blackburn pointed out.
Tennessee adopts second high school equivalency test Submitted Article Tennessee Adult Education Division
Beginning January 2, 2014, out-ofschool youth and adults who are pursuing a high-school equivalency credential will have another test option to improve their earnings potential. Tennesseans will have a choice of taking either the new 2014 GED® test or an alternative high school equivalency test designed by Educational Testing Services called HiSET™. Tennessee is one of several states that are adopting the new test due to changes in the GED Exam. Beginning in January of 2014, the new GED test will only be offered via computer. The HiSET alternative test will allow for either computer or paper-based testing. Passing either test will lead to a high school equivalency diploma issued by the State of Tennessee and
accepted nationally. “We are pleased that the alternative test, which has been approved by the General Assembly and the State Board of Education, will continue to offer paperbased testing as an option in addition to computer-based,” said Adult Education Administrator Marva Doremus. “We want as much accessibility as possible for those who lack a high school diploma since attaining this credential enhances their employment opportunities.” Like the GED, the HiSET exam will measure a student’s knowledge and skills in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies and will be significantly aligned to Common Core State Standards. Tennesseans who have passed some but not all parts of the GED have only the remainder of 2013 to earn their high school credential un-
der the current test structure. All partial scores will no longer be valid after January 1, 2014. Last year, 10,142 Tennesseans earned GED diplomas, but Tennessee still has more than 930,000 adults without a high school diploma or its equivalent. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, those who have a high school credential earn $181 more weekly than those without. Additionally, those with a high school credential have an unemployment rate of 8.3% compared with 12.4% of those who do not. For details on taking high school equivalency tests and information on preparation courses, contact the Adult Education Division of the Department of Labor & Workforce Development at (800) 531-1515, or visit the Department’s website at tn.gov/ labor-wfd/AE/.

Eastview Friends By Dorothy Goodrum Contributor
Some of my favorite memories were made when I lived in Eastview, Tennessee. I had gotten married; we had built a house and I had one sweet daughter. Life was good. Some of the nicest people were my neighbors, Joe and Sue Teague and my best friend Brenda Shepard. Sue, Brenda and I walked every morning and we solved all of our life problems. Time marches on though and things change. Some things do not change though, for instance, still some great friends of mine call Eastview home. One of those great people I met while I lived in this great little southern town was Barbara Martin. Mrs. Barbara was married to a great man, Mr. Pete Martin. They were married on December 20, 1958 and this started a great story. Mr. Pete worked for Pickwick Electric in Selmer, Tenn. and was such a kind man. I remember he was a big man but a soft giant at the same

time. They have two daughters, Lenora and Patricia. They are very well known in our community. Lenora worked for the ambulance service for several years and is a friend to everyone she meets. Patricia is a nurse and makes sure patients receive the care they need. One of Mrs. Barbara’s favorite things to do was spend time with her granddaughters Rachel and Rebecca. Both of them were very active in the band so Mrs. Barbara attended several band concerts. Rachel and Rebecca loved their grandmother and she loved them. Mrs. Barbara worked at Bell South from 1960 until 1981 when she retired to take care of her father. She attended New Bethel Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and if there was church Mrs. Barbara was there and had a hand in everything going on at the time. She was there before the church was. Before it was a church it was a school and Mrs. Barbara was a student. Besides being very active in her church she worked at

Mrs. Barbara Martin Loaves and Fishes. A very kind lady who has given of herself to her family and her church; she was never afraid to give involved. I used to hear all the stories from Lenora about her cooking skills. She is now a patient in our home for therapy. She works with the therapist every day to achieve her goal of returning home to live her very productive life. Our therapy department is working very hard to make sure she reaches these goals. We strive to provide the needs of the folks who come to
us for rehab. We boast that we have a great rehab department and are proud of the work they do there for our patients. Life is always changing so you have to change with it, but I am so proud there are people in Eastview I can and still do call my friends. Friends are one of God’s greatest gifts to us. Thank him for yours today and if you appreciate them never forget to tell them so. To all of my friends who live in Eastview, thank you for all the good memories. Until next time.

Bobcats win district cat fight By Sarah Rowland Sports Writer
The MCHS Bobcats took their first district win in a showdown against Fayette-Ware this Monday night, a reschedule due to last Friday’s rain out.

Staff Photo by Sarah Rowland
“No question,” said head coach Charlie Dampeer, “It’s a game we had to win.” MCHS took a strong lead against their opponents early when only three minutes into the first quarter Kintavius Newsome scored the first touchdown. After a quick turnover back to MCHS, Jarrett Mood scored a second touchdown with about two minutes left in the quarter making the score 14-0 for the Bobcats at the end of the first quarter. In the second, MCHS continued to leap ahead of Fayette Ware scoring a third touchdown by quarterback Isaac Cagle just minutes into the quarter making the score 21-0 for the Bobcats. MCHS almost immediately took back the ball recovering a fumble by Fayette Ware on the snap. Later in the second quarter, Fayette Ware again fumbled and the ball was recovered by Mood on the 50 yard line, however, a penalty on MCHS set the team back 15 yards. Coming into halftime Fayette Ware advanced quickly and took a touchdown with 30 seconds left in the half. Then Bobcat Darwin Kelly received the punt and immediately rushed into the end zone for what looked like a quick touchdown before the half, but due to a penalty on MCHS the touchdown was no good leaving the score

Through the mud and muck Cardinals defeat district rival Panthers despite the rainy weather By Brian Azevedo Sports Editor
The Adamsville Cardinals made the trip to Parsons, Tenn., to take on their district rivals from Riverside High School, and came away with a muddy win.
Adamsville 40 Riverside 21
The Cardinals started the game strong on defense settling in to the rain drenched field. Mid-way through the first quarter the Cardinals were the first to get on the score board when Zak Neary took the hand off and found his way into the end zone. Adamsville would miss the extra point and take a 6-0 lead early in the game. It did not take Panther quarterback Luke Ward and the offense long to answer back with just more than three
in the driver’s seat. Before the third quarter was over, Paul would again add to the Cardinal lead this time on the ground. Paul kept the ball on the read option and made his way up the middle for the score. After the huge offensive explosion Adamsville took a 33-7 lead into the third quarter. During the second half the Cardinals began to slow down their offense and try to keep the Panther offense off the field. The Cardinal defense had a few minor break downs in the third quarter giving up 14 points, but settled in and stopped the Panthers from making anymore trips into the end zone. Adamsville’s offense was not done scoring in the game, they answered the Panther points with yet another touchdown from Paul to Burcham which put the Cardinals up
minutes left in the quarter Riverside took the lead 7-6 over the Cardinals. During the second quarter the Cardinal offense took stride and exploded for 27 points. The first score came 10 seconds into the second quarter when Seth Paul aired it out and found Ross Burcham who took the pass in for the long touchdown. Adamsville was not able to complete the two point conversion and took a 12-7 lead. Mid-way through the second quarter, Paul found Burcham again and again Burcham made his way into the end zone. This time the Cards were able to tack on the extra point extending their lead 19-7. After less than a minute had gone by the Adamsville offense found themselves with the ball again and it was sophomore running back Laderrick Means who made the corner and out ran the Panther defense on his way to the end zone. Burcham would take the pass from Paul for the two point conversion and the Cardinals remained firmly

The Titans came up big this weekend when former Volunteer wide out Justin Hunter made the game winning catch against the Chargers. Hunter caught the only touchdown pass of the day from quarterback Jake Locker and it came just in time. The Titans are now 1-0 at home and 2-1 on the season, and are currently tied atop the AFC South with Houston and Indianapolis. The Titans will take on the 2-1 Jets next Sunday, and hope to slow down Geno Smith and company to come away with their third win of the season.
Monday Night Football
Peyton Manning and the undefeated Broncos rewrite the record books once again on Monday night. Manning completed 32 of 37 passes and threw three touchdowns in the Monday night game against the Raiders, and set a new record for touchdowns thrown in the first three games with 12. The record was previously held by Tom Brady of the Patriots with 11. The Broncos will play host to the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday and Manning looks to remain unbeaten for the 2013 season.

Ramer keeps on ‘Wynn’-ing By Sarah Rowland Sports Writer
Ramer Eagles remained undefeated as they took the win over the Bethel Rebels by a landslide last Thursday night.
Eagles 42 Rebels 0 The Rebels maintained a tough defense early in the game slowing down the Eagles offense said Eagles coach Jeremy Blakely. The Eagles quickly broke through and earned 28 points in the second quarter due to “timely turnovers” and defensive stops said Blakely. Kylin Wynn led the Eagles in scoring with four touchdowns and more than 250 yards rushed. Jhiannos Damron also gained almost 70 yards rushing and one touchdown for the team. Grant McMahan also led the Eagles with two completed receptions, two interceptions and one touchdown while Trevor Wil-
son also recorded an interception. Quarterback Bryce Hawkins also earned a touchdown for the Eagles. This Thursday the Eagles will go headto-head again the junior high Cardinals who fell to Hardin County last Thursday night at Adamsville.

The Cardinals played host to the Tigers from Hardin County last Thursday night, but could not come away with the home win.
Tigers 24 Cardinals 16
The Cardinals couldn’t seem to bounce back after Hardin County began the game 8-0 with the first touchdown of the game. With their first possession, the Cardinals moved forward for a first down, but within five plays reached fourth down and returned possession to the Tigers who quickly gained another touchdown and two point conversion jumping further ahead 16-0. Cardinals runner Tristen Coleman finally broke free of the Hardin County defense rushing 25 yards for a touchdown. The Cardinals two-point conversion was good bringing the score 16-8. After another touchdown from the opponent, Coleman for the Cardinals again rushed about 40 more yards for the second touchdown of the game for a

score of 24-16 in favor of Hardin County. The Cards gained very few yards before turning the ball over back to the Cardinals. The Cardinals gained exceptional yardage in their final possession, however, never made another touchdown. The game ended 24-16, a loss for the Cardinals. Cardinals coach Michael Harvill said their opponents played “solid football” and deserved the win. “(Hardin) did everything right,” said Harvill, “and we just couldn’t match them.” Harvill said since last Thursday’s game, the Cardinals will try to regroup and prepare to meet the Ramer Eagles who are currently undefeated in the county.

The City of Adamsville Utilities is converting all of its residential gas and water meters to a new mobile read electronic reading system utilizing Master Meter water meters and Master Meter gas meter transponders. The reason for this change is meter accuracy, reading efficiency, better customer service and water conservation. The City’s contractor will be performing water meter replacements and transponder installation door-to-door begining the fourth week in September 2013. It will take several months to reach final completion. The City of Adamsville’s contractor American Utility Contractors will be working in your neighborhood soon. The contractor will have their vehicles and employees identified with company name and logo. With completion of the new mobile electronics meter reading system, it will replace the present way the City reads meters which consists of walking by and reading both gas and water meters. City of Adamsville’s Meter Reader will have the ability to drive down the streets in our service areas and read the water and gas meters simultaneously. The data that we receive from the meters consists of the current consumption reading, usage history, along with tamper and leak detection information that will allow us to be more efficient in the City’s utility billing department. For further information please contact Adamsville Utility Department at 731-632-1401 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. The City will have personnel on call all other times.

40-21 going into the fourth quarter and secured the much needed district win for the Cardinals. “Our guys showed a lot of heart and we got a much needed win,” said head coach Brandon Gray. “Some of our starters did not get a lot of playing time but our young guys stepped in and made plays when they were called on. You have to have depth to be a championship team and we showed that we can play a bunch of guys at a bunch of different positions and be successful.”

21-6 at halftime. MCHS returned strong in the third quarter when just one minute into the second half Reggie McNeal rushed 65 yards for another touchdown advancing the score 286. Less than three minutes later, McNeal intercepted the ball and rushed at least 70 yards for a touchdown further widening the gap for the Bobcats 35-6. McNeal again intercepted the ball another two minutes later for about a 75 yard return bringing the ball just yards within the end zone. However, a penalty was called against the MCHS coaches for being on the field though Dampeer argued it was a change of possession and he was allowed on the field. After another penalty, MCHS was penalized about 30 yards. About a minute later on the clock, McNeal took another interception and almost 80 yard return for a play similar to his last interception that was denied results due to penalties. Then Newsome scored another touchdown for MCHS making the score 42-6 by the end of the third quarter. Due to such a strong lead Dampeer chose to play second string defense in the fourth quarter and Fayette-Ware maintained possession throughout most of the last quarter scoring three touchdowns. MCHS took the game in the end for a final score at the end of the fourth of 42-30. Dampeer said the game against Fayette-Ware, MCHS’s first district game, is something he’s been worried about winning. After the game Monday night he said the Bobcats will start fresh the next day trying to run out any soreness and prepare for their next game against Hardin County High School this Friday night.

SES announces September Students of the Month
Selmer Elementary School and Project BASIC are proud to announce the Students of the Month for September. September’s theme for Student of the Month was “RESPONSIBILITY” (based on the pillars of character each student learns) and all of these students were chosen for their ability to show this particular character trait. The students learn about character building skills in their guidance classes and also in their Project BASIC classes. We are all so proud of each of these students. It is so important to show “RESPONSIBILITY” at school (and everywhere else)! Each student deserves special recognition for this accomplishment. These students were each given a special certificate and a treat from McDonalds to recognize their achievement. Congratulations to each and every one of you.
