Christopher Eugene Reynolds, 39, a former police officer of the Selmer Police Department, pleaded guilty last Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee to violating the civil rights of an arrestee, James D. McKinney, the Justice Department announced. During his guilty plea before U.S. District Judge J. Daniel Breen, Reynolds admitted that while using his authority as a SPD officer, he slammed a handcuffed arrestee to the floor of the McNairy Regional Hospital and struck him in the face. According to information presented in court, Reynolds acknowledged that this assault was unreasonable and did not serve a legitimate law enforcement purpose. The victim was injured as a result of the assault. “Mr. Reynolds has admitted that he used unjustified and unlawful force against a handcuffed arrestee,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division, Jocelyn Samuels. “The Justice Department will continue to prosecute law enforcement officers who violate the constitutional rights of individuals in Submitted Photo their custody.” Sentencing has been scheduled for Feb.

Police have, as yet, been unable to identify the owners of a flash light and a radar detector, but have returned a pair of binoculars, a camera and a GPS to the owners. “Selmer Police Department would like to recognize Sgt. Steve Ellsworth with the McNairy County Sheriffs Office who was instrumental in helping us solve these crimes,” Rickman said. Rickman said that more charges would likely be filed in the case.

Charles Anthony Edwards, 42, of Selmer, didn’t get to enjoy his freedom for long. He had only been released for three days from the Tennessee Department of Corrections in Henning, Tenn. after serving a three-year sentence for Madison County burglaries, when he was arrested last Wednesday by the Selmer Police Department. Edwards was charged with two counts of burglary after a search of his residence revealed items taken from vehicles, according to a press release by Lt. Roger Rickman. The Selmer police believe that the burglaries occurred either on the

McNairy County remembers veterans with three event filled days honoring their service
A large ceremony and memorial dedication were held at the Ramer Civic Center on Veteran’s Day. The unveiling of the monument took place following a ceremony on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. The Ramer Ruritans dedicated the new $15,000 Veteran’s Plaza for which they raised funds and worked to erect in time for this year’s event. Funds are still needed to maintain and light the monument. Keepsake bricks are for sale for $100, and this will include the engraving of the name of a veteran on the memorial itself. To purchase a brick or donate to the memorial call (901) 413-6988.

More than a half dozen separate Veteran’s Day events were held throughout the county last week to honor our local fighting men and women. The events began with a wreath laying ceremony (above) and parade (below) at the McNairy County Courthouse last Saturday. The Selmer American Legion post led the ceremony with Cub Scout Pack 32 assisting to retire unserviceable American Flags. The veterans were joined by law enforcement members, the McNairy Central Band and several businesses and organizations in their annual parade which followed the ceremony.
On Veteran’s Day both Adamsville and Selmer elementary schools held respective ceremonies for our veterans. The SES students made posters and cheered on veterans as they held a parade through the school grounds. At AES students held a ceremony in their gym to honor our troops.

causing him excruciating pain, temporary blindness and an inability to breathe properly, the complaint said. The incident report filed by Reynolds stated that McKinney became combative and cursed the officers, kicking the window of the patrol car several times and Reynolds’ leg, according to the report. At one point during the altercation, a neighbor informed Reynolds that McKinney suffered from breathing difficulties including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and bronchitis. Despite this, Reynolds turned the heat on high in the car although the temperature was warm outside, the complaint charged. This aggravated McKinney’s breathing problems and put him in a state of sheer panic. When he tried to alert Reynolds, he pulled McKinney out of the car, beat him and used the chemical spray on him again. Reynolds then left McKinney’s residence in his patrol car alone but instead of heading toward the jail by the most direct route, he went the opposite direction, the complaint alleged. Reynolds then went to a secluded area in the county beside a pond, dragged McKinney out of the car and repeatedly struck McKinney while he lay there handcuffed, the complaint alleged. Reynolds then put McKinney back in the patrol car and transported him to McNairy Regional Hospital. Upon arrival, Reynolds pulled McKinney out of the patrol car and hurled him into the sliding glass door of the emergency room with such force that it caused the industrial sliding glass doors to come off the track. Reynolds then forced his knee into McKinney’s back, the complaint stated. The report said McKinney tried to jerk away from Patrolman Tony Westbrooks and Reynolds, grabbed Reynolds privates and was taken to the ground with Reynolds placing his knee on McKinney’s back. McKinney was taken to the treatment room and upon being released stated that he was not going back to jail and had to be forcefully placed in the patrol car, the report stated. After McKinney was released from the hospital, Reynolds transported McKinney back to the McNairy County Jail. Reynolds removed McKinney from the back of his patrol car and put him in a chokehold and pulled him while leaving the chokehold intact into the “sally port” of the jail. Reynolds then used a hip toss and slammed McKinney onto the concrete floor of the sally port, the complaint alleged. Reynolds left the sally port but returned, took the handcuffs off McKinney, pushed him and verbally assaulted him in an effort to provoke a fight with him. When McKinney refused to engage Reynolds, he repeatedly slammed McKinney’s head into the cinderblock wall and counter inside the sally port, the complaint stated. McKinney’s injuries caused him first to be transported back to McNairy Regional Hospital and later to the MED in Memphis, where he remained under close observation for eight days and where he was diagnosed with several severe and long-term permanent injuries, according to the complaint. Reynolds sat down with the Independent Appeal for an interview regarding the case in 2012. At that time, Reynolds maintained his innocence and said that he planned to return to law enforcement once his legal troubles were cleared up. Attorney General Mike Dunavant, who heads up Tennessee’s 25 Judicial District which includes McNairy County said that Reynolds was unlikely to face state charges in this case. “I feel like the federal conviction is sufficient to address the charges in this case,” Dunavant said.

The Milledgeville mayor and aldermen will hold their annual Public Relations Dinner this Saturday night at 6 p.m. at the Old Station Diner, downtown Milledgeville. Dignitaries from McNairy, Hardin and Chester counties are invited to enjoy a great meal and fellowship and are encouraged to attend. Mayor Dannie Kennedy announced that Chester County Highway Department completed mowing the sides of the road. “They did an exceptional job this time,” said Alderman Hershel Hollin. Kennedy reported working on additional bids for a new roof for city hall. He is also working on bids for painting the building and received one quote for $2,200 with the city scraping and pressure washing prior to painting. The board took no action.
The concession stand and pavillion repair in the park and painting is complete. The board discussed continuing to have problems with 18 wheeler trucks destroying city property with their trucks after making deliveries. Kennedy spoke with the business owner and supervisor of the trucking company to share concerns regarding damage to property and believe they have resolved the issue. A water leak in front of the cafe was repaired by the City of Adamsville. A street light outage on Perry Street was discussed. The board approved purchase of a battery for the fire departments AED unit. The board approved expenditures to cover the costs of seminars the mayor deems beneficial to the city for him and the fire department with an average costs of $40-50 per class. Travel will be covered by attendees. Kennedy read a letter from
Godwin and Associates, CPA firm, stating recommendations foraccounting disclosures regarding amendments or supplemental appropriations to the city budget. On the audit, disclosure of expenditures was unclear as they exceeded the general fund. Margie Alexander, city recorder, explained to the board that the purchase and repair of the Ross Building last year was not properly disclosed by the previous accounting firm as the audit reflected. However, she spoke to the auditors and feels comfortable going forward as they will also provide bookkeeping services going forward. This report was filed as public record. The board discussed the need for younger men and women to join the fire department and ways to recruit new members. The city will put up Christmas lights in the next couple of weeks and approved the Oct 14 meeting and financial budget in earlier business.
“A Hole in the Wall” Thieves break into Bethel Dollar General By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
Thieves cut a hole in the wall of the Bethel Springs Dollar General last Monday and took about $4,000 cash from safes, according to an incident report provided by the McNairy County Sheriff's Department. Deputy Jason Gray responded to a call from store manager Tina Weatherly. Upon arriving, he noticed that a hole
had been cut in the metal at the back of the building. Inside the store, another hole was cut in a wall that separated the stock room from the rest of the store, and a shelf was knocked off that wall. A phone box in the office was damaged, and the hinges of the safes were removed. This crime was turned over to Investigator Robert Hitchborn. Anyone with any information about this crime should call the Sheriff's Department at (731) 645-1004.

800-job industry considering county By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
An industry is considering McNairy County that could bring 800 jobs here, County Mayor Ronnie Brooks told the County Commission meeting last Monday. Due to confidentiality, Brooks said he could not disclose the name of the potential employer. The search for a site could begin in earnest next year, the Mayor said. The industry is also looking at other locations. “We would bend over backwards to put 800 people to work,” said Commissioner Keith Jernigan. In other economic development news, Brooks said that the Monogram/GE expansion would close next month. The United Stainless expansion has hit a snag with the state due to reduced funding. “I think this is back on track,” said Commissioner and
Budget Committee Chairman, Jim Rickman. The engineer has reduced the size of the expansion to fit available funding, Rickman said. Brooks also noted that Adamsville has, or will have, a couple of new industries. Sparks will be locating in a building that was owned by Masco Bath, and Magnum Press will create new jobs. Every building available for economic development has an industry or a potential industry, Brooks said. “There are no vacancies at the North Park,” Brooks said. The solar farm project, which will create around 400 construction jobs, is one possible reason for the amount of interest in the county. We’re real fortunate to be keeping what we have,” Brooks said. In other news from the meeting, Rickman and Terry Abernathy, attorney for Pickwick Electric Cooperative,
expressed optimism that the county would be able to finance the purchase of the PEC building. The county could either offer PEC $100,000 in tax abatement or the county and PEC could swap checks. It is expected that PEC will owe about $600,000 in taxes on its new location. “I think we can make it work if you ladies and gentlemen want it to work,” Abernathy said. Director of Schools Charlie Miskelly updated the commission on the $1.7 million school repair program. Miskelly said that the bleachers at Selmer Middle School and Adamsville Junior/Senior High School have been replaced as has the Michie Elementary School roof. The SMS roof should be complete soon, and work on the McNairy Central High School has begun. This leaves the air conditioning at AJSHS to be done. At the suggestion of Literacy Council President Carolyn Bowers, the commission voted to name the Adult Education Building the Charlotte Boling Education Center.
Taylors take StoneHouse Ministry to Kenya By Christen Coulon Managing Editor
Many people only know of Africa from what they have read in books or have seen in news reports. One local family has gained first hand experience of the continent from their mission work in Kenya. Rose Creek residents David ‘Noah’ Taylor and wife Cynthia Taylor returned to Kenya to continue their mission work with StoneHouse Ministries International last Tuesday. The Taylors stopped by the Independent Appeal offices last month during their two-month visit back home to share their adventures with God to the churches and organizations of the U.S. David said their family had visited Kenya many times in the last five years, during several short mission trips. However he said they realized that they could not complete their work in a few weeks or months, so they made the decision to move there permanently. The Taylors’ mission has been one of education with the family establishing a church outside the slums of Nakaru, Kenya, as well as a primary school with more than 100 students. “We have a church that we have put there, David Taylor said. “We built the building and now we have more than 100 people coming to it.” David also said they work with a group called African Shepard’s Alliance, which is a gathering of like-minded missionaries who help deal with the red tape in Kenya. He said that the corruption and red tape in Kenya have been an unexpected challenge to their mission. “The nation is 80 percent Christian,
but what is horrifying once you get there is that people have not been taught,” David said. “They don’t know basic Christian doctrines so they are very susceptible to corrupt bishops, (and) pastors who will take advantage of them.” The Taylors said that they see their mission as one of educating leaders who can work to educate others in the eastAfrican nation. David said that their work there has been difficult and that they are now getting established to do more good in the nation. “We have had some real adventures over there. We have almost been killed once or twice,” David said. “The first (several) years we lived right near the slums with a pastor because we felt like we really needed to experience what is going on, and we needed to feel the people we were with.” Recently, however, Cynthia said that they moved into a larger house farther away bringing one of the families they worked with in the slums to live with them. He said that SMI has really begun to grow, and they have been asked to spread their message to other countries near Kenya. One of the key moments in their ministry, David said, was when two pastors came to them with struggling churches joined them after seeing what they were doing. They are now talking with two other churches who are looking to join SMI. He said that the good works they have been able to accomplish in Kenya are due in part to the financial support the ministry receives from Rose Creek Village.
David and Cynthia took their love for God to share with the people of Kenya. The Rose Creek Village couple began their African mission trips more than five years ago. Last Tuesday they moved back to Kenya to continue their work and establish a permanent mission in the African country. David said that they are trying to improve the lives of those they work with, but he said that it is a difficult job due to the political climate and rampant poverty. “Every missionary who goes to Kenya comes back with horror stories,” David said. “Many of the young girls there do not stand much of a chance. AIDS at one time infected 30 percent of the population of Nakuru. That has been corrected some,
but it is still a major, major problem.” The successes they have seen have made all the difficulties seem worthwhile Cynthia said. “When you look into the eyes of these little children and you see over time that they are going to make it, they are going to get out of the slums and they are going to make it,” Cynthia said. For more information on SMI visit stonehouseinternational.org.
To all the Citizens of Selmer: My family and I would sincerely like to thank EACH AND EVERYONE who voted for me, contributed to my campaign, encouraged me, and prayed for me over the past several months. I am truly humbled to have been elected as the Mayor of Selmer. It is a dream come true for me. As I said during my campaign, I will work day and night to be the best Mayor I possibly can be. Now that the election is over, I am asking for EVERYONE’S support. We need to be united and working together, and with everyone’s help, we can grow Selmer together. I also want every person in Selmer to know that from the first day I take office, my door will always be open to all of you each and every one. I will listen to anything you want to bring before me whether it’s large or small. The Mayor’s office is your office, and I truly want to help in every way I can. Thank you again for all you did to make this possible. I am totally dedicated and committed to working as hard as I can for you and for Selmer. NOW IS THE TIME FOR US ALL TO BEGIN MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER.

McNairy Central’s Robotic team finishes 2nd in Mississippi By Jeff York Contributor
McNairy Central’s Robotic team finished second in the Mississippi BEST competition recently in Starkville. The second place finish qualifies MCHS for the BEST Regional Robotics Championship at Auburn University on Dec. 7-8. McNairy’s 14-member team was sponsored by Caterpillar. The only other Crossroads team in the contest was Corinth High School. Mississippi BEST is designed to inspire and interest students in engineering, science, and technology through participation in an exciting sports-like technology contest. The BEST competition motivates students by challenging them to build a remote-controlled robot that accomplishes a defined task within a competitive setting. A mentor and a school coach guide student teams through the engineering process. “I’m very proud of our team because they worked hard,” said coach Robin York. “Our students worked well together and they learned a great deal preparing for the competition.” Using only the materials provided, students had six weeks to design, develop, and test a robot that can outperform their competitors. During this time, the students experience the same problems, challenges, and breakthroughs that an engineering team encounters when it takes a product to market. In both cases, there are team dynamics, time constraints, material constraints, and pressure from other teams who are trying to solve the same problem. “Our students were in a real situation and had to fix their problems in real time,” said York. Members of the MCHS team are Isaac Cagle, K.J. Jackson, James Martin, Dylan Riggs, Anthony Padgett, Logan Tilley, Logan Williams, Matthew Maness, Matthew Glover, Kristen Rowsey, Luke Kennedy, Jacob Waffird, Mitch Haendel and Kalyn Scott. “Caterpillar was very supportive of

Schools get ThreeStar grant focusing on Math and Science performance By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
The McNairy County school system was presented with a $12,000 grant check at the Manufacturing Day program last Friday in Selmer. “We’re going to start the day off right. We are going to give away some money this morning,” McNairy Regional Alliance Executive Director Ted Moore said. McNairy County was one of the first counties to get involved in the ThreeStar program. It is the only county to have been certified every year. The requirements of the program have changed over the past couple of years. There are five pillars of the program Moore said. They are jobs and economic development, fiscal strength and efficient government, public safety, education and workforce development and health and welfare. Counties are required to pick one pilllar, create a plan of action, submit it and have it approved by the state. McNairy County chose education and
workforce development Moore said. Under that pillar, the county was required to increase the percentage of third through eighth grade students scoring proficient or advanced in math. The school system received a $12,000 grant from the McNairy Regional Alliance. It was used to bring Activities Integrating Math and Science training to county math and science teachers, according to Delise Teague BOE Community Relations/Instructional Coordinator. This program shows teachers a practical, hands-on approach to math and science instruction, Teague said. “Teachers across the county are, at this very, moment, utilizing strategies they have learned this summer,” Teague explained. “The McNairy County school system is grateful for the partnership we share with the McNairy County Chamber of Commerce and McNairy Regional Alliance, and that’s because we all understand that quality education is essential to the future of McNairy County,” Teague added.

Joy in a shoebox this year Operation Christmas Child By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
Operation Christmas Child is seeking to collect shoeboxes full of toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement for children around the world. The boxes will be collected at the First Baptist Church in Selmer during National Collection Week from Nov. 18 until Nov 25. The goal for the drive is to collect 1,800 shoeboxes. This national effort is the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. Volunteers will be collecting the boxes at the church. This is the third or fourth year the drive has been conducted in Selmer, according to Thomas Barton, spokesman for the project. About 1,600 shoeboxes were collected last year, Barton said. Susan Lee is coordinating the drive in this area. “It’s just a wonderful program,” Barton said. This is the only word about Christianity that most of those kids get, Barton said. Christianity is outlawed in many of the countries that the boxes go to. These countries will allow Operation Christmas Child boxes, which include Bibles in their languages. “Many times, that’s the only word about Jesus that they will hear,” Barton said. For additional information about Operation Christmas Child, please visit samaritanpurse.org. At this local collection site in the Selmer area, anyone can drop off a gift-filled shoebox to send to a child overseas. Then using whatever means necessary—trucks, trains, boats, bikes and even elephants—the shoebox gifts will be delivered to children worldwide. For many children, the shoebox gift will be the first gift they have ever received. Boxes can be dropped off at the church at 310 W Court Avenue Selmer from Nov 18 until Nov. 22 from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Hours for Nov. 23 and Nov. 24 are 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Hours for Nov. 25 are 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Though the shoebox gifts will often travel thousands of miles, Operation Christmas Child offers a way for participants to follow their box, by using the donation form found at their website Donors will receive an email telling the country where their shoeboxes are delivered. Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 100 million shoebox gifts to suffering children in more than 100 countries since 1993. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect another 9.8 million gift-filled shoeboxes in 2013. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child, call 615-778-0046 or visit the website. National Collection Week for gift-filled shoeboxes is Nov. 18-25; however, shoebox gifts are collected all year at the Samaritan’s Purse headquarters in Boone, N.C. Participants can also build a box through an online tool offering a personalized and convenient way to send a gift to a child in one of the hardest-to-reach countries.

Staff thanks community for supporting arts education Thanks to all who participated in the second annual Halloween Street Party hosted at the Selmer Community Center. Last year, this was just an idea of the staff that developed three weeks prior to Halloween and with the help of the City of Selmer, Parks and Recreation Department and the Justice Complex agreeing to move their trunk or treat events downtown, we were able to pull off a family friendly experience like never before. Many downtown and area businesses, churches and civic organizations as well as local politicians joined us and decided we needed to make this an annual event. The McNairy Regional Alliance and Arts in McNairy also had an integral part in the event. This year, once again, we he had a wonderful time with all of you on Halloween Night and would once again like to thank the thousands of people who showed up at the Selmer Community Center for the fun-filled celebration. Despite the unexpected rain and storms, our community was able to come together for the street party. Hundreds of dollars were raised for arts education in our county elementary schools. This money will be added to money raised at our art auction which will run throughout the month. This year, we know that many of you waited in long lines to park your cars, and then waited again outside in the rain to enter the event. Turnout for the event was better than expected. It quickly became obvious that we have outgrown the ability to hold future Halloween Street Parties at the Community Center, and because of this we will include a rain date for the event in the future. We would also like to thank everyone who assisted in this year’s event. A special thanks should go out to the City of Selmer and the Selmer Parks Department for co-sponsoring the event with the Independent Appeal. Lt. Tony Miller and the entire Selmer Police Department and Sybil Dancer, director of Selmer Parks and Recreation as well as Russel Ingle, director of Chamber Programs at McNairy Regional Alliance, Paige Holmes, Managing Director AIM, Greg Worthey, First Christian Church and Guy Buck, Sheriff were all instrumental in the planning of this successful event. We want to thank all the youth volunteers from AiM, who, despite the weather, put their best forward to pull off the Haunted House downtown. In addition, a special thanks goes to area art teachers Margaret Henry, Anita Graves and Jan Woolworth for adding such a special touch with the children’s art display and hosting the silent auction at the event to raise money for the arts. We would also like to thank all downtown and area businesses, groups, organizations, churches and individuals who came out to make this Halloween special for our community. In addition, we would like thank the dozens of volunteers who donated their time and money to making this event work despite the challenges. This year’s event was truly a community effort, and it could not have happened without the support of this community. In future years, we will assure the street party will remain downtown. We are proud to have grown the event so much with all of you in the first two years, and we would ask for your continued support in future years in order to appeal to larger and larger regional audiences in years to come. We also ask that you please join with us now for the art auction, which has been continued throughout the month of November. The show features professional local artists who have donated work to raise money for arts education. The works of art will be on display in our office along with bid sheets. Bids will also be accepted on the McNairy Auction for the Arts Facebook page. The more money we raise, the more lives we can touch. Art matters. See you next Halloween!

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
USDA offers farm assistance Eligible producers are encouraged to apply for assistance by Dec. 20. For agricultural land and non-industrial private forestland producers interested in applying for farm bill conservation program financial assistance in Fiscal Year 2014, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Tennessee has set Friday, December 20, 2013, as the signup cutoff date for first evaluation funding consideration. Pending the availability of funds, additional evaluation periods may occur and cutoff dates will be posted on the Tennessee website at http://www.tn.nrcs.usda.gov/ programs/. The application deadline applies to the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and EQIP National Initiatives and the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) and WHIP National Initiatives. “When landowners take part in conservation cost share programs, the funds filter through the community, and the initial investment rolls over several times, benefitting the whole area,” said Kevin Brown, Tennessee NRCS State Conservationist. The funds from both EQIP and WHIP help farmers improve the natural resources on private working lands in Tennessee. Conservation practices help the environment while also making the land more productive by addressing issues like water quantity, water and air quality, wildlife habitat, and soil health. Eligible producers with a conservation plan for their operation receive priority for financial assistance. NRCS
staff is available to help producers create conservation plans. Only projects that are “ready to implement” will be ranked for funding. Applications can be submitted anytime throughout the year. NRCS’s conservation programs address resource concerns such as soil erosion, soil health, irrigation efficiency, impaired water quality and fragmented wildlife habitat. EQIP, one of NRCS’s largest conservation programs, helps eligible producers plan and implement conservation practices that provide opportunities to improve soil, water, plant, animal, energy, air and related resources on agricultural land and non-industrial private forestland. For additional information, eligible producers are encouraged to contact their local NRCS Service Center. Service center locations and more information on the programs can be found at www.tn.nrcs.usda.gov. NRCS has provided leadership in a partnership effort to help America’s private land owners and managers conserve their soil, water and other natural resources since 1935. For program information, contact John Rissler at (615) 277-2576. Learn more about WHIP and EQIP and other NRCS programs.

McNairy County Health Care
Trick or Treat By Dorothy Goodrum Contributor
We recently celebrated our style of Halloween at McNairy County Health Care Center. Our activity department planned a party and a Halloween costume contest. The Joker was present, along with a couple of hunters and in walks Nurse Good Body. All the patients had a good time and that was the most important part of the day. Several of the patients were also in costume. Mrs. Patty Whitman was lovely as were many of the others. Now you know the main part of Halloween is Trick or Treat, and not to be outdone, we had our own version. The only problem was I got the trick but not so sure about the treat. Now, I do not deny that I am a cleaning freak. I have to have everything in its place and my place, either at work or home, has to be well or-
ganized. The one thing you may not know is that I hate to have my picture made. So I had to go to Memphis for a meeting and was out for the day. When I came to work the next morning, there were pictures everywhere in my office and they were all of
me. I have never seen so many pictures. They were everywhere in my office. Every surface had a picture taped to something. The first words out of my mouth were, “I am going to kill her.” I know who was the ringer leader in this trick on me. So to my
friend Deborah, payday will come when you least plan for it. Anyway everyone had to come and see my office and they all had a good time of picking out their favorite picture. The patients wanted to know if I had new wallpaper. I have never seen as many pictures in my life in one place and I was in all of them. Mrs. Pat makes sure our patients do not miss out on anything that is happening. We have parties for every occasion. Christmas is always a special time and they are busy now earning their big bucks for their favorite shopping day. In this busy holiday season, take the time to remember the things in your life that are important. Presents are nice, but I doubt most of us remember what all we received for Christmas last year, but I bet you remember your family and the good time you had. To all the staff and patients, I hope you enjoyed the pictures because it will be hard getting me still long enough for another one. Until next time.
Justin Byrne completes his Boy Scout Eagle service project
Justin Byrne, grandson of Leonard & Rosemary Byrne of Adamsville, recently completed work on his Boy Scout Eagle Service Project. His project was to help clean up the storage room at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Savannah. He made 16 shelves to put in their storage room and helped to clean up and organize it. He received help from 3 scouts from local Troop 34 in Savannah. They were Andrew Couchoud, Danny Couchoud, and Bret Dietz. St. Mary’s is very pleased with the work Justin has done for them. A service project is required for every scout that plans on earning the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouts. With his Eagle Project now complete, Justin hopes to complete the rest of his requirements before the end of the year. Justin is the son of Randy and Cissy Byrne. Randy is a former resident of Selmer. Justin is also the nephew of Diane Hill and Bridget Jones of Ramer.

Lady Lions off to a strong start in the new season By Brian Azevedo Sports Editor
The Lady Lions got their season started with a win against the Savannah Christian Eagles, but could not hang on to beat Hardin County Middle School.
Lady Lions 48 Lady Eagles 25
After coming off a tough loss against the Lady Tigers, the Lady Lions looked to get their season back on track against SCA. Selmer was able to take an early lead as they played host to the Lady Eagles, and they never looked back. In the first quarter Selmer looked to establish them selves defensively and that is exactly what they did, holding the Lady Eagles to only three points and taking the lead 9-3 going into the second quarter. Once the second quarter got underway, the Lady Lions exploded offensively. Led by Jamie King, Lexi Trice and Caitlyn Bodiford the Lady Lions put up 22 points against the Lady Eagles while only giving up nine, extending their lead to 31-12 going into the locker room at half time. In the second half, the Lady Lions were able to keep up the intensity on the defensive side of the court and never allowed the Lady Eagles a good shot at the basket. Selmer’s offensive did not keep up with the pace that they set in the second quarter, but they were able to get in ball in the basket enough to get the job done and out score the Lady Eagles for the third straight quarter and continued to build on their lead going into the fourth quarter. As the clock ticked down and time began to run out in the fourth quarter the Lady Lions kept the intensity high and made sure that there would be no chance of a comeback. Selmer held the Lady Eagles to only five points in the final quarter while scoring eight of their own to secure the teams first win of the young season. Selmer played hard all game and made sure that they turned things around from their previous loss.

Michie to celebrate mascot, recognize past Blue Devils By Sarah Rowland Sports Writer
Estel Mills, Faye Tucker Brooks, Louise Killingsworth and Peggy Baker, who were members of the Class of 1949, stand next to the painting of the mascot they helped establish.
Michie school is in the midst of a three part project to commemorate the school’s athletic history and the history of the team mascot, the Blue Devils. The first part of the project has been completed, which was the installation of a new gym floor featuring the mascot at center court. The second part will be a memorabilia display at the entrance to the gymnasium near the concession stand, and the third part will be a history of the school to be digitally displayed with the memorabilia. A committee was formed through the school to oversee the project. One of the committee members, Anne Bowers, spoke about the project’s purpose and an upcoming commemoration event that will be held during halftime at Michie’s first home game on November 25. Bowers said the overall purpose

Cards fall short against the Tigers in Hardin County By Brian Azevedo Sports Editor
The Adamsville Jr High Cardinals made the trip across the river to take on the Hardin County Middle School Tigers, and could not come away with a win.
Lady Tigers Lady Cardinals
The Lady Cardinals played a hard fought game and gave the Lady Tigers all they could handle, but were not able to come away with the win. The game started slow on offense on both sides, but began to pick up as the game went on. After Hardin County held the lead 11-8 at the half, the Lady Cards surged to come back and tie the game at 21 at the end of the third quarter. The game was tight all the way to the end, when the Lady Tigers held a three point lead with just a couple of minutes to go. Adamsville began to foul and send the Lady Tigers to the line, but they were not able to hit the big shot to tie the game back up. With just seconds left in the game Adamsville was down by four points and made an attempt to get the big shot off, but the Lady Tigers were able to hang on to secure the win at home.
Tigers 55 Cardinals 39
The Cardinals got off to a great start against the Tigers and, at one point, held a 14-0 lead early in the first quarter and looked like they were going to keep the momentum during the game. After going into the second quarter with a 16-7 lead, the Tigers were able to fight their way back and tie the game at 24 going into halftime. Coming out of the half, the Cardinals tried to get back in their rhythm, but were unable to slow down the now rolling Tiger offense. Adamsville lost their momentum and began to see the Tigers pull away as they found themselves down 40-28 going into the final quarter of play. In the fourth quarter, Adamsville battled and did what they could, but they could not slow down the Tiger offense. Hardin County was able to continue to pull away and come away with the big win 55-39.

of the project is to “bring the past to the students and community” through the memorabilia display and digital history. “I think overall we’re wanting to show the growth and successes of the school from the very beginning, and restore that history so the students and community can get a hold of it,”said Bowers. Bowers also hopes to shed a more favorable light on the Blue Devil mascot by teaching about the national and international history behind the symbol. The mascot was chosen by the Michie Senior Class of 1949. Estil Mills, who was part of that senior class, said the 13 seniors, 10 boys and three girls, had decided to compile the school’s first yearbook. Before doing so, they wanted to choose a mascot to go with the yearbook. Mills said the mascot was actually suggested by Hoyt Atkins, who was a fan of Duke University. Not only does the mascot follow the tradition of one of our nation’s top universities, but according to Bowers, the mascot has an international historic significance. It is also connected to France during World War I. According to an archive on the Duke University website, in France, the Blue Devils were a courageous group of soldiers who wore flowing blue capes and berets. Their unique knowledge caused their country to be dependent upon them to break the stalemate of trench warfare in the French Alps. It wasn’t until the United States entered World War I that these French soldiers received their nickname the “Blue Devils.” When the U.S. entered the war, the Blue Devils toured the country in their blue capes and berets helping raise money for the war effort and becoming an iconic image to the Americans who crossed paths with them. The American composer and lyricist Irving Berlin composed a lyric about them describing them as “strong and active, most attractive...those Devils, the Blue Devils of France.” As an unveiling for the new gym floor and a commemoration of Michie history, Bowers and the rest of the committee will have a presentation during Michie’s first home game on November 25. Bowers said they will recognize the class of 1949 for their leadership in choosing Michie’s mascot and will host a hospitality room for guests of Michie’s past, including members of the class of 1949, past administration, faculty and board members, and past coaches and athletes. The event is sponsored by the city of Michie who donated $1000 to the effort. “When Anne Bowers approached the mayor for support for a celebration of the Blue Devil and to honor former Blue Devils for all generations to remember,” said Alderman Jay Poindexter, “We thought as a board this would be money well spent since our school is such a part of our history.”

In the second quarter the Rebels were able to turn it on again and put up 10 more points on the board while holding the Blue Devils to only five. After winning the first two quarters, the Rebels came

Clint Coleman and the Devils offense exploded in the fourth quarter and out scored the Rebels 16-8 to take the exciting game into overtime. The Blue Devils kept the intensity up during the overtime period and outscored the Rebels 11-4, completing the come back win and getting their first victory in county play. “You have to play both halves of the game,” said Blue Devil head coach Michael Cleary. “Their biggest player was put on the sideline early with foul trouble and when he was able to get back in the game, the momentum had shifted. I always tell my players to play the whole game and to never quit, and that paid off in a big win.”

Selmer had a tough opponent for their opening game of the new season when they traveled Hardin County to take on the Lady Tigers. After getting out to a bit of a slow start, the Lady Lions were able to get in a rhythm and put six points on the board. The Lady Lions were down two points moving into the second quarter, and were trying to make up the ground and take the lead back from the Lady Tigers. Although the defense played well, the Lady Tigers were able to outscore the Lady Lions again in the second quarter and take a 17-14 lead into half time. After coming out of the half, the Lady Lions exploded for their biggest offensive quarter. Led by Lexi Trice, the Lady Lions put up 13 points to out score the Lady Tigers and to take a one point lead going into the fourth quarter. The game was close and both teams were playing with high intensity, but the Lady Tigers were the one who were able to come out on top. After a low scoring quarter, the Lady Lions fell by just one point 33-32. “This was a tough, aggressive hard fought loss,” said head coach Robin York. “We missed too many easy baskets in this game to walk away with the win. I was pleased with our hustle in this game. The season is early and I know we will improve in the future.”

Lady Cardinals notch their first county win against the Lady Eagles By Brian Azevedo Sports Editor
The Ramer Eagles made the trip to Adamsville for their first county match-up of the season against the Cardinals.
Eagles 52 Cardinals 27
The game got off to a bit of a slow start as there was not much scoring going on on either side in the first quarter. After battling on the court, the Eagles were able to pull away a bit holding the Cardinals to only three points while scoring nine of their own. Going into the second quarter, the Eagles looked to extend their lead and they were successful. Ramer was able to stay strong on defense during the second quarter and they held the Cardinals to six points in the second quarter and took the lead 17-9 into halftime. Coming out of the half, the Eagles jumped out on offense and extended their lead scoring 18 points while holding the Cardinals to seven on their side. Grant McMahan, Kylin Wynn and the rest of the Eagles were determined to keep Tre’ Blankenship, Woody Hanock and the Cardinals from mounting a come back and their tight defense made that happen.
After holding on to their lead moving into the fourth quarter, the Eagles continued to play good basketball. Although the Cardinals were able to make a run for a comeback, but the Eagles were able to hold them off and complete the county win.

The Lady Cardinals got off to a strong start against the Lady Eagles in their first county match-up of the season.

After halftime, both teams came out and caught on fire offensively. The Lady Cardinals were able to defend their home court and outscore the Lady Eagles once again to build on their lead going into the fourth quarter.

Lipstick and Camo: Single gal prepares for deer season By Sarah Rowland Sports Writer
“Hey, Pop, look at my new hunting boots and tell me what you think.” Mom peers down her nose into the huge shoebox and takes in the camo lace-up boots and says, “You are not my daughter.” When I asked her what she meant, she then proceeded to point out that I had passed up buying a leather moto jacket at T.J. Maxx yesterday to buy hunting boots. I argued I still like fashion and she countered, “You like this more.” True, I probably do. Well, I think I do. Maybe I want to. We’ll see. I didn’t grow up around any kind of hunting. No guns in our house and the only camo you would find was the camo pants my mom bought me according to the latest InStyle guide. I wore them to school, too, and at lunch a boy asked if I hunt. When I said no he asked why in the
world I was wearing camo. “It’s fashionable!” Later he passed me a note in class that read, “I like you. Do you like me? Check yes or no.” As a teenager I was introduced to guns and hunting through my youth minister. My first time out I shot an eight point buck and wooo-weee I was hooked! I can still remember the adrenaline as I lined up the shot, the excitement tracking the fallen buck in the woods and the disgust as I field dressed it. Bleh! I’ve been out a few more times over the years with friends and my stepdad but haven’t shot anything since that first time. This season is the first time I’m in a position to pursue hunting for myself without begging some man to let me tag along with him. That’s why I say we’ll see how much I think I like hunting over the next few months. So far I’ve invested a small fortune as a 20-something single gal into this venture so practically speaking, I’m going to give at least this season my all. Earlier this year, I bought my first guns, a rifle and shotgun. I had a gun in

each hand and as my grandmother rounded the corner to come open the back door for me and saw me through the glass, her eyes got big and she held up her hands in surrender. I don’t think I was feigning excitement when my ground blind got to me from Amazon and I asked my bosses if I could set it up in the office. They let me. It was awesome. That first pair of boots I bought in the store were not right, according to my dad, because they were uninsulated. As a woman who wears long sleeves almost year round (I take July off), Thinsulate is a necessity. So I took them back and ordered a different kind on Amazon. I tracked that package every hour on the hour all the way from Montana. They went out for delivery at 8:30 a.m. and didn’t reach me until 3:30 p.m. By the time I got them, I slapped those suckers on and laced them up wearing them to church that night and to work again the next day like a six-year-old in her Halloween costume. It’s almost one week until rifle season opens and I’m getting ready breaking in my boots, scent proofing my clothes and price checking the deep freezers at Lowe’s. I’m still just a girl with a lot of personality angles and the funny thing is right now my calendar reads that on November 23 deer season opens and my favorite science fiction show returns. Now that’s what I call a good day.

Selmer Middle School students speak at Rotary Club meeting Submitted Photo
Carson Kennedy, Jamie King, and Raegan Sharp represented the Selmer Middle School Beta Club when they recently spoke at a meeting of the Selmer Rotary Club. Included in their presentation was exactly what Beta Club was and how they qualified to become members. Also, they talked about how Beta Club emphasizes community service, and they are interested in serving. One way the SMS Beta Club is currently serving is by counting and sorting the Boxtops for Education that are turned in by students to help raise money for the school. The Beta Club currently has 43 members and is open to seventh and eighth graders who achieve high standards in the area of grades on their report cards.

Nelson Rickman taught carpentry at MCHS from 19871999. During his tenure, approximately 150 students built at least one house a year, with two built in some years. The houses were generally between 1,500-1,600 square feet, and always within easy driving distance of the school. “I think the highest one was the next-to-last one we built,” said Rickman, “and it went for somewhere around $92,000.” Many of those students went on to careers in the construction, or related fields such as plumbing, electrical or heavy equipment. “I’d estimate at least 25% of my workers are still in some form of construction work today,” said Rickman. Clay Redmon, 1991 graduate, built houses with Rickman while at MCHS. After graduation, he worked as a contractor for 15 years, primarily working in Jackson. Taking over the role of carpentry instructor in 2012, he is excited at the chance to teach a new generation of students the skills he began under Rickman’s tutePhoto by Lisa Forsythe lage.

First Graders learn about more than just pumpkins Ms. Wendy Bowers’ first graders are celebrating the month of October with a lot of fun lessons using pumpkins. In math the students learned about addition, subtraction, and tally marks using a jack-o-lantern and candy corn. In reading, they read about an apple and a pumpkin then did a Venn Diagram
to compare and contrast the two. Students also celebrated by visiting the Pumpkin Patch at Circle Y in Corinth, MS. Later this month, they will learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin. Students will end the month by eating pumpkin pie and roasted pumpkin seeds.
