It appears that McNairy County dodged a bullet early this week as a strong series of storms moved through McNairy County beginning last Sunday night and extending into Tuesday. As of press time the storms had spawned more than 106 tornados and claimed more than 28 lives in several states. The storms began west of the Mississippi River on Sunday as 30 tornados struck in several western states claiming more 16 lives. As the storms moved into Mississippi and Alabama on Monday, another round of 58 tornados brought destruction to those states including a mile-wide tornado which struck the commercial district of Tupelo, Miss. near the city’s mall. The shopping area, popular with McNairy County shoppers, on Tupelo’s northern edge sustained severe damage. Several popular restaurants, stores and hotels were completely destroyed in the storm. “The restaurant I ate at last Saturday is no more,” said Larry Russell, Stantonville Alderman referring to Vanelli’s restaurant in Tupelo. As of press time, only one fatality was reported in the Tupelo area from Monday’s storms. As the brunt of the storm system moved into McNairy County it brought strong winds, lightning and heavy rain along with it. One of those lightning strikes early Monday was responsible for knocking out the McNairy County E911 dispatch center. “McNairy County 911 sustained a lightning strike (Monday) morning,” according to a release from the McNairy County Sheriff’s

The Little Courthouse Museum, (1824) the original courthouse now our county museum will be on tour. At Magnolia Manor, (1849) the home of Judge Austin Miller and Headquarters for the Union Army by Generals Logan, McPherson, Sherman, and Grant, guests will be greeted by General Grant, himself. Troop encampments will be located at The Pillars, (1828) where folks like Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, and President Polk visited. At Polk Cemetery (1845) residents from the past will tell of their days in Hardeman County. The “original owners” of McNeal Place (circa 1862) will greet guests and tell them about their Tuscan-style villa noted for its exquisite Spanish ironwork and their daughter. Visit the wounded soldiers at The Columns (1860). Our tour guests will learn how the sale of Confederate General Otho F. Strahl’s horse paid for stain glass windows at the St. James Episcopal Church (1869). Lunch will be available for purchase at Ingram Hall. Now for the 2013. The “NEW” Maxwell-

caused by hail, watch for a wall cloud – an isolated lowering of the base of a thunderstorm, a cloud of debris, large hail, a funnel cloud and a roaring noise. The agency offers the following helpful tips to keep your family safe during a tornado. -Citizens should listen to local news or a NOAA Weather Radio during storms to stay informed about tornado watches and warnings. -Know your community’s warning system. Communities have different ways of warning residents about tornados, with many having sirens intended for outdoor warning purposes. -Pick a safe room in your home where household members and pets may gather during a tornado. This should be a basement, storm cellar or an interior room on the lowest floor with no windows. -Practice periodic tornado drills so that everyone knows what to do if a tornado is approaching. -Consider having your safe room reinforced. Plans for reinforcing an interior room to provide better protection can be found on the FEMA web site. -Prepare for high winds by removing diseased and damaged limbs from trees. -Move or secure lawn furniture, trash cans, hanging plants or anything else that can be picked up by the wind and become a projectile. As always, local residents can visit us on Facebook for weather updates, alerts and breaking news in McNairy County.

that local dispatchers on Monday were working from portable radios and emergency stations within our county. She said she didn’t have a time frame for all of the damage to be repaired and normal operations to resume. “They’re working right now,” Swims said. “We’re still dispatching all of our 911 calls. All non-emergency calls are still being taken in Selmer.” Swims said it would be accurate to say that there had been little to no disruption in the operation. “We haven’t missed any calls,” Swims said. “Everything’s going as well as possible,” Swims said. About an hour after her interview with the Independent Appeal last Monday, Swims confirmed that the dispatch office was back up and running. As the long round of storms ended last Tuesday, it appeared that the county would have a respite from severe weather for the next several days with no significant storms predicted in the coming week. Residents should keep a watchful eye on the skies this time of year as tornados in Tennessee are most likely to occur during the months of March, April and May.

The City of Michie and area churches invite everyone as they host a noon prayer service in honor of the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 1st in city park. In addition, the board approved a motion to pay $2,435 to Rex Magee Electrical to place 8 receptacles and junction boxes around the track in city park in preparation for their upcoming Summer Bash in June. Fire Chief Shirley Clark agreed to move the tanker and brush truck to the fire department lot as required by TML insurance after repair completed on the pump of the pumper. Clark also reported all paperwork on the 2008 grant was complete and reimbursement should be forthcoming. Clark also reported seven members of their Scout Explorer Program are attending meetings and training in addition to their regular monthly meetings. The board approved purchase of a six inch directional bore under the creek on Hamburg Road with costs estimated to possibly exceed $5,000. The board unanimously approved a raise of $1 per hour for water department employee Cody Jenkins who recently completed his 90 day probationary period. This raises his salary to $11 per hour. Water Department Manager Roger Jenkins reported an expected visit this Friday from the engineering department supervising the water department grant upgrades and the provision of a punch list of issues or concerns from that visit for final repairs. The state also looked at issues with the lagoon but it may be three months until any report is available on that project. The board approved the first reading of the 2014-2015 budget, approved the minutes of the March meeting and discussed some additional improvements to the city park and mulch at the civic center prior to adjournment.

Home Banking’s Michie branch holds grand opening By Christen Coulan and Jeff Whitten Independent Appeal Staff

Home Banking Company’s newest branch in Michie will hold a grand opening celebration Saturday. There will be fried catfish and chicken plates to eat, along with entertainment and door prizes at the location on 5867 Highway 22. The branch has been serving the Michie area since Sept. 1, 2013, according to Home Banking President and CEO Jim Rickman. “We wanted to welcome our customers and to let the people in the community know there was an opportunity to come by, fellowship and meet everyone,” Rickman said. The timing of the grand opening is designed to take advantage of the nice weather typical of this time of the year, Rickman said. “We are just delighted to be in the Michie community. I live in the Michie community and we felt it would be a good fit for Home Banking Company and certainly felt like that community needed a bank. We didn’t want that bank to be closed, so we think it’s a good market and a good fit for Home Banking Company,”

Rickman said. Home Banking does not have any specific plans for further expansion, but Rickman said that does not mean that opportunities will not come up in the future. “We are always looking for opportunities. It just depends on circumstances and what we think is best for the bank and our customers,” Rickman said. Things are going well at the Michie branch, Rickman said. “We are quite pleased with the results at the Michie branch at this time. We have two fine ladies that work there from that community,” Rickman said. Ann Wiggington and Kathy Bryant are and will be serving customers of the bank. Wiggington has been at the location since the 1970s, when First National Bank owned the branch. One of McNairy County’s oldest businesses, Home Banking Company was chartered in 1915 in Finger. The bank moved its headquarters to Selmer more than 30 years ago and has since branched into Savannah, Tenn. and Corinth, Miss. With its four present locations, opening a Michie branch will help the bank serve a large are in the middle of their service area that did not currently have a branch.

“It kind of fills in that spot for us between Selmer and Corinth,” Jim Rickman, president and CEO of Home Banking Company. He said that some of the bank’s nearly 5,000 customers reside in the Michie area, but the Rickman hopes to see more customers from that area. He said that their bank is ideal to serve customers from Stantonville, Shiloh, Acton, Eastview, and Counce, Tenn. Before going Home, the bank building in Michie has held several names since it opened in 1969. The branch was originally part of First National Bank which merged with Volunteer Bank which in turn was acquired by BancorpSouth who sold the branch to Hardin County Bank. Rickman said that he was with First National Bank when it opened its Michie branch. “I live in that area, I know the people, and I am familiar with the customers in that area,” Rickman said. “We are excited to be in that area. We have some customers already who live there and we think (the new branch) will be more convenient for them. We think that people in (Michie) should have a

choice as to who they bank with...it’s a personal choice when it comes to banking, but we want to offer them the opportunity to do business with the Home Banking Company and we feel like we offer a level of service that would entice them to do business with us.” Rickman said that Home Banking primarily serves McNairy, Hardin and Alcorn counties right now. He said that they are a small bank but offer all of the services that customers have come to expect from a larger bank. They have all of the deposit and loan services that customers expect as well as online and telephone banking. “We try to provide a more personal level of service,” Rickman said. We try to tailor our banking to our customers to provide them with a more unique banking experience.” Rickman said that one of the unique services the Home Banking offers is that a human being answers the phone when customers call. In fact, Rickman said that if a customer calls and wants to talk to the bank’s CEO, he will speak to them personally. “I don’t think that you will get that level of service from larger banks,” Rickman said.

“We’re still hoping to find a pot of gold to resurface the tennis courts,” Adamsville Parks and Recreation Director Greg Martin told the city commission at its April 21 meeting. Martin said the cracks in the courts have gotten bigger and will have to be refilled, as has been done two or three times in the six years Martin has been at the helm of the department. “We’re going to have to come up with money to resurface it,” Martin said. Only refilling the cracks is a temporary fix, Martin said. “It’s going to cost quite a bit,” Martin said. Martin said that the basketball courts are about in the same condition as the tennis courts. “It’s not as bad as the tennis court, but it does need repair, too, so we’re looking for money,” Martin said. Mayor David Leckner said that there are grants available, working with the Parks and Recreation Board. Martin said he did not have current estimates on how much tennis court repairs would cost, but about two years ago he did get a $30,000 estimate. This would include completely removing the court that is there now, putting a new one there and replacing the chain-link fence. “That’s just old, real old. It would look real bad if you put up new tennis courts and put back up a rusty chain-link (fence). You could put it back up, but it’s not going to look good,” Martin said about the fence. Leckner asked Martin to get as many bids and estimates on upkeep and park equipment for the playground as possible for use in the budget process. Martin said one estimate for a new 10-foot fence for one ball field was around $7,300. Due to rule changes, the current four-foot fences would need to be upgraded. “We really need to concentrate on the walking trail,” Martin said. There are about six or seven lights out on the walking trail, Martin said. “It could be something minor,” Martin said.

McNairy County’s March unemployment rate, 11 percent, though down from 11.4 percent the previous month, was still the fourth highest in the state, according to figures released from the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The county has been in the top five for the past four months and in the top ten since last October. However, the county’s unemployment rate has fallen 0.8 percentage points over the past year. At 10,060, the labor force included 20 fewer people than the previous month. There were 8,960 people with jobs, an increase of 30 over February. The ranks of the unempoyed fell by 40, to 1,110 over the same period. Hardeman County’s unemployment rate in March was 10.6, the fifth highest in the state. Hardin County’s unemployment rate was 9.4 percent, Chester County’s was 7.6 percent and Alcorn’s, which comes from the Mississippi Department of Employment Security, was the lowest of surrounding counties at 6.9 percent. In the state, the March unemployment rate was 6.7 percent, down 0.2 percentage points from February. The unemployment rate fell in 86 counties, rose in four and was

unchanged in five. The national unemployment rate was also 6.7 percent in March, the same as in February. The civilian labor force increased by more than 500,000. Counting those who have given up looking for work and who work part-time but seek full-time employment, the unemployment rate increased 0.1 percentage point, to 12.7 percent. The average length of a bout of unemployment was 35.6 weeks in March, down from 37.1 weeks in February. At $255,000, local sales tax collections were up nearly 15 percent over the previous month, but down 16 percent from a year earlier. Home sales were down six from the previous month, to 33. Twelve homes were sold in Adamsville, eight in Selmer, four in Bethel Springs, three in Stantonville, and two each in Michie, Ramer and Finger. Figures for Guys were unavailable. The median sales price for a home in the county was nearly $56,000. Median prices for the county’s towns were nearly $92,000 in Stantonville, $74,000 in Adamsville, $60,000 in Michie, $59,000 in Bethel Springs, $50,000 in Finger, $49,000 in Ramer, and $46,000 in Selmer. There were three new foreclosure filings in the county in March, up from two the previous month. Figures were only available for Selmer and Adamsville.

Siler: ‘The best part of my job is helping people’ By Christen Coulon Managing Editor

The Tennessee Highway Patrol welcomed its newest lieutenant recently as Lt. Barry Siler was named to the post for the local troop covering McNairy, Chester and Hardin counties. While Siler is new to the rank of lieutenant he is no stranger to this corner of Tennessee. “I have been the sergeant of Hardin County for more than six years,” Siler said. “When David Killingsworth, who had been the lieutenant here for 19 years, retired in November (2013), it opened up his position.” Siler said that he then applied for the position, interviewed for the competitive position and was named to the post last month. With his new rank, Siler is in charge of the nine THP officers in his troop. His unit, Troop E is one of five troops in the Jackson, Tenn. district of the Tennessee Highway Patrol which covers 11 West Tennessee Counties. Siler said that knowing the area is very helpful coming into his new leadership position. “We try to work the troop as one big county,” Siler said. “It’s a long ride from

Chickasaw State Park to the Wayne County line on Highway 69 South near the Alabama line.” The officer said that it would take about 1.5 hours to drive the entire span of his new troop’s coverage area. Siler said that he would draw on his 26 years of previous experience in law enforcement in his new position, however he said that for the most part, the focus of his job has not changed. “Public safety on the roadways is our main concern,” Siler said. The three primary enforcement areas the THP focuses on are encouraging seatbelt usage, stopping impaired driving and watching for hazardous moving violations. However, in this part of the state which is sparsely populated, the THP is also often called to assist local law enforcement officers in need. “If the city of Selmer, or the McNairy County Sheriff’s Department needs our assistance we are there,” Siler said. “We have a great working relationship with the sheriff’s department.” Siler said that they more often work with the sheriff’s department because the two agencies handful of officers are the only law enforcement available for a very large area. He said that assistance goes both ways

and local officers will often lend a hand at a crash scene until THP officers can arrive as well. He said that deputies will also help at crash scenes directing traffic and gathering evidence for the THP. “If a deputy or an officer calls for assistance, and we are the closest agency, we will be there,” Siler said. “If a trooper is covering three counties by himself, he may need some help.” Siler said that cooperation is important and he said that he has years of experience working with city, county and state agencies. In fact, prior to joining the THP, he was both a city officer for Bolivar, Tenn. and a deputy for the Hardeman County Sheriff’s Department. However, being a THP officer is definitely a better fit, Siler said. He said that he didn’t like staying in the same small area on the same roads every day. Siler said that he liked the fact that THP officers cover a much wider area even beyond their troop and district area if needed. He said that in a disaster or emergency, THP officers can be called to anywhere in the state there is a need for them. Siler said that he wanted to get into law enforcement for one reason; to help people. He said that he loves his job at the THP because the very basis of his job is helping people.

“We protect the citizens,” Siler said. “We do everything we can to ensure their safety.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at J. Lipford's Alley, a retail/salon, on Main Street in Adamsville last Saturday. Pictured are: Kayla Leatherwood (stylist), Jennifer Lipford (owner), and Ashton Hooper who will be an intern stylist this fall. “Adamsville does not really have a place where people can just run in and grab a gift or a knick-knack, and never has. I wanted to offer a place where people could run in if they needed to, or they could come in and browse and feel welcomed. There is no gossiping in my store, and men and women are both welcome to come in and shop or get their hair cut,” says owner Jennifer Lipford, “We just want everyone to know that they are welcome here.”

McNAIRY VOICES Should it be legal for people to carry a concealed weapon without a permit? Why or why not?

Part 1: How did we get here? By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Some Russia experts believe we are closer to war than at any time since the Cuban Missile Crisis. This is a very different situation than existed a quarter century ago when the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact collapsed. The prospects for peace with Russia were always over hyped. The last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, sought to reform, not destroy communism, though that is what he ended up doing. Former Russian President Boris Yeltsin, though he was the hero of the overthrow of the Soviet Union, once ordered troops to fire upon and seize the parliament building. When Yeltsin, who was plagued with declining health and alcoholism, chose Vladimir Putin to succeed him, he thought he was choosing someone strong enough to maintain order but who was also committed to economic and political reform, but he was only half right. For 16 years, Putin served in the Soviet KGB, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. In 1998, Yeltsin appointed Putin as head of the Russian FSB, the successor organization to the KGB. The West always underestimated how deeply embedded authoritarianism and corruption was in the Russian political culture. Former communist oligarchs plundered former state enterprises, establishing the kleptocracy. At first, there was a power struggle between Putin and the oligarchs, but he eventually reached an accomodation with them. Worsening relations between the West and Russia have also been attributed to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s expansion into former Soviet puppets in Eastern Europe. Former Pres. Richard Nixon convinced then-Pres. Bill Clinton that NATO expansion was necessary to preserve the independence of these nations. The only reasons for Russia to have a problem with this is if it still had designs on them or was paranoid, because no rational person could think NATO would use these countries as a base for an invasion of Russia. NATO does not have permanent bases in Eastern Europe and, prior to the Crimea and Ukraine crises, has not permanently deployed troops there. It still has no troop deployments beyond token ones. Economic collapse and extreme lawlessness in the post-Soviet era has resulted in a pro-Soviet nostalgia among the people and leaders of Russia. In 2005, Putin said that the collapse of the Soviet Union was a major geopolitical disaster of the previous century. In 2008, Russian, South Ossetian and Abkhazian forces battled the forces of the nation of Georgia, a former Soviet “republic”, in a five-day war. South Ossetia and Abkhazia were originally part of Georgia but broke away with the support of Russia. The U. S. was preoccupied with the financial crisis and was in the middle of a presidential election. Barack Obama, who won the election, called for a “reset” in U. S.-Russian relations. The crisis in Ukraine showed that Russian aggression in Georgia was not an anomaly. Euromaidan (Eurosquare in Ukranian) protests arose after Pres. Viktor Yanukovyich began backing away from an economic agreement with the European Union and sought to join the Russian-sponsored Eurasian Customs Union. Nearly 100 protestors were killed by the government.

Jason Scott (Morris Chapel):

Tara Baxter (Morris Chapel):

“Sure they should. It’s their right.”

“I don’t think so.”

Maurice Robinson (Adamsville): “I do believe we shouldn’t have to do that. I believe because (of) security.”

Irene Bernier (Adamsville):

Tony Lee (Sardis):

Wendy Luster (Michie):

“I think they should have a permit because this way we know who has the guns.”

“[Anyone needs] to have some kind of training, permit and a background check because guns do not kill people, people kill people.”

“No. There’s too much violence already.”

DOODLES

A deal negotiated by France, Germany, Poland and Russia, on Feb. 21, reduced Yanukovyich’s powers and set elections for December, though Russia refused to sign the deal. Ukraine’s parliament ousted Yanukovyich, who fled to Russia, and declared him a wanted man. Yanukovyich asked the Russians to intervene in Ukraine. Russia denounced the interim government as illegal and began to foment unrest among ethnic Russians in southern and eastern Ukraine. Russia annexed the Crimea, which had been a part of Ukraine since Soviet leader Nikita Khruschev transferred it to Ukraine in 1954. Russia massed 40,000 troops on the border with Ukraine. The U. S. and Russia signed a deal requiring illegal groups to disband and to vacate government buildings. This agreement did not appear to quell the violence, since the Russians viewed the Ukranian government in Kiev as illegal. In a television appearance on April 17, Putin called southeastern Ukraine New Russia and said God only knows why this area was transferred to Ukraine from Russia in the 1920s. The reason why this situation is so dangerous is

that Russia’s goal of taking back the Soviet Union would create enough distrust and hostility in the West. By annexing Crimea, Russia is in violation of the Budapest Memorandum, in which the U. S., the U. K. and Russia guaranteed the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Ukraine, in exchange for it giving up its nuclear weapons. If Putin is willing to violate this agreement, what other agreements is he willing to violate? It is also unclear if Putin’s goals are limited to taking back the Soviet Union. If Russia’s excuse for its aggression is to intervene on behalf of Russianspeaking populations, these populations exist is many Eastern European nations, who are NATO members. If Russia commits aggression against these nations, the NATO treaty requires that the U. S. and western Europe come to their defense. This is part one in a two-part series.

McNairy County Health Care

Jewell Nichols and Pam Elam

Friends By Dorothy Goodrum Contributor

As I have often said, my favorite patient is the one I am with that day (kind of like your children they are all yours and you care for all of them.) I can tell you that one patient comes to mind when I need something to make me smile. Jewell Nichols is a sweet little lady who will keep you on your toes every day. You never know what Jewell will say. She is a very educated little lady who has her own opinion about everything. She can bring a smile to my face any day and keeps me on my toes with her sharp mind. Her son tells me she was always a very quiet lady who usually keeps her opinions to herself. I have often been told that people in their later years, can get by with saying whatever they want and people will either overlook them or just think that they are elderly. I am not sure about all of that, but I sure enjoy talking to this Jewell of a lady. Jewell and her husband, Mr. A. J. often sit and visit late in the afternoon when Mr. A. J. comes to visit. He will bring her ice cream or some other special thing Mrs. Jewell likes. He has shown me her pictures when she was young and will say she sure was a pretty lady. Yes sir, she was and she still is. She really likes the days when her favorite nurse is working; Pam Elam. She calls her PAM PAM or at least on the days she is happy with her. Some days she changes her name, but I will not write it here. What she changed it to our my pastor may have to walk on my toes next Sunday. She likes to sit at the desk with Pam and tell her how to do her job. Pam is from the Adamsville area and is a big Cardinal fan. Her

son plays football for the famous Brandon Gray and her youngest daughter is a cheerleader also for the Cardinals. Her oldest daughter is the mother of Pam’s biggest joy in life, her grandchild. Pam loves to spoil her granddaughter on her days off. Her daughter is soon getting married so Pam is a very busy lady, but never too busy for one of her favorite girls Jewell. She will take the time to fix Jewell’s hair and to make sure she is dressed for that visit with Mr. A. J. It is nurses like Pam who provide for the needs of our folks every day. I am very proud of all the care they give and for the many times they go above and beyond their job to make sure these folks are cared for. Pam has been a nurse for six years and we are glad she calls McNairy County Health Care Center home. Now, please remember May 7th at 2 p.m., is the book signing and it is your time to come out and tell the folks in our home that you remember them and the work they have done in making our history. I love it when someone stops me outside of work and tells me how much they enjoyed the story in the paper that week. Well, let me assure you it is not about me or my great writing skills because that would be a joke. It is and always will be about the great folks who live in our home. When you see a pretty sunset or a sunrise you can usually get a good picture same thing applies for me I have no great writing skills but sure have good story material. So, come out and ask them to sign your page. All the money for the books will be given to charity. I appreciate all of our readers and hope to see you next Wednesday. Until next time….

UT CTAS Designates Local Official as Certified Public Administrator Submitted Article University of Tennessee

Patricia Jo Davis, a fiscal clerk from McNairy County, was among the 16 county employees honored by The University of Tennessee County Technical Assistance Service as Certified Public Administrators following a Capstone event at Montgomery Bell State Park. To achieve the designation, each of the officials completed 80 credit hours in the County Officials Certificate Training Program (COCTP). The program is administered by CTAS and is available to every county employee in the state. CTAS is an agency of the statewide UT Institute for Public Service. Each course in the program is designed to aid county government officials in performing their jobs and efficiently administering county services. Classroom topics include ethics, fire in-

surance ratings, finance, records management, proactive leadership, and information technology proficiency. “Some courses are tailored for a specific office, while others cover general managerial and governmental functions,” said Bob Wormsley, interim executive director of CTAS. “The entire program is designed for practicality and to build skills the officials need every day to better serve their constituents.” Graduates of the program must take 16 hours of training per fiscal year to retain their certification. More than 1,500 county officials have completed the program since its inception in 1982, with more than 800 of those officials still in office. Because every election brings a substantial turnover in county offices, CTAS gears the training program to finish within a four-year period.

Trivia Questions Q1: McNairy County was originally calved from what neighboring West Tennessee County in 1823? Q2: In 1879, Chester County Tennessee was created by carving out pieces from four other Tennessee Counties. What four counties were trimmed to create Chester County?

State Introduces New Finger’s Famous Part 2 Mobile App for Farms, Andrew Maness: Farmers Markets A Life cut short PickTNProducts

A “Pick Tennessee” mobile app is now available which can find and then map the way to locally grown farm products, farms and farmers markets. The free app, downloadable from both iTunes for Apple products and from Google Play for Android devices, is the latest advancement of Tennessee Department of Agriculture’s Pick Tennessee Products promotion. “I’m proud to introduce this new face of an old friend,” Tennessee Department of Agriculture Commissioner Julius Johnson said. “Pick Tennessee Products has thrived for 28 years not only by providing real and valuable services, but also by having the flexibility to adapt to change— changing cultures, consumer demands, and technology. “Our government services must anticipate needs not just for the current year, but for 15 years down the road. With the new Pick Tennessee mobile app, we now reach consumers where they already expect to find us—on their phones and other digital devices.” The Pick Tennessee mobile app allows users to search by item, like “apples,” by region of the state, or season. The mobile app then provides directions to the chosen location through direct GPS mapping. “Every Tennessee farmer or farm product producer who sells directly to the public can visit the Pick Tennessee Products website and apply to become part of this extraordinary free service,” Johnson said. “If a farm is listed on Pick Tennessee Products, that farm is automatically available on the new Pick Tennessee mobile app for

GPS mapping.” The Pick Tennessee mobile app can keep track of favorites and provides links to seasonal recipes, handy tips and fun facts, as well as the full Pick Tennessee Products website. Farm direct and local items on the app include options as varied as local fruits and vegetables, wineries, greenhouses and plant nurseries, Christmas tree farms, and local honey. The items can be searched by the farm where they’re produced, or the markets where they’re sold. Pick Tennessee Products is the longstanding state campaign to connect customers to locally grown or made products and farm-related activities. The Pick Tennessee Products site, www.picktnproducts.org, also posts directories of the state’s county fairs, equine trails and services, local meats and dairies, and agritourism farms and activities of all kinds. Going live in 1995, the Pick Tennessee Products site was the state of Tennessee’s first consumer Web presence and continues to be TDA’s information gateway for consumers and for marketing related producer programs. The site, a completely free service, currently features close to 2,000 participating farms, processors and other ag and farm businesses, listing about 10,000 individual items. It attracted more than 300,000 visits last year. “This entire promotion is a completely free service to our producers and ag industry, on the Web, in print and broadcast, and now, through the full range of social media,” Johnson said. “Pick Tennessee Products now has a new look and, but more important, it provides greater services for our farmers and rural economies.”

Andrew J. Maness lived fast and died young. Born in 1881, he was called the moving spirit of Finger, according to Let’s Call It Finger by John E. Talbott. Maness became cashier at the Bank of Finger in 1908. A $4,500 land investment in 1911 had turned into $13,000 in a few months, according to the McNairy County Independent, the forerunner of this paper. By 1909, he was a cotton buyer for Steele, Miller and Co., of Corinth, Miss and a representative of the Richmond Bond Co., of Hickman, Ky. Maness married Pearl Swaim in 1904 and they had one son. Like many wealthy men of his time, Maness’ passion was horse racing and it was this passion that led to his untimely demise. At this time horse racing was legal, and Selmer had a track. On Oct. 14, 1913 Maness was in a race, trying to pass another horse, when the front feet of his horse became tangled with the hind feet of the other horse. Both horses and riders then took a tumble, but the other rider escaped the collision without injury. Drs. Ernest Smith and John Smith (namesake and ancestor of the current Selmer Mayor) took charge of Maness’ medical treatment. Dr. Jere Cook, of Jackson, Tenn. came to Selmer on the night train to examine Maness. After being examined by Cook, Maness was transported on the 10 a.m train to the Jackson hospital. Maness had not suffered a skull fracture, but a severe shock to the brain. The doctors in Jackson thought Maness’ life could be saved by readjusting the shocked parts of his brain, but Maness succumbed to his injuries on Oct. 15, 1913. Maness’ funeral was held on the front porch of Willie P. Massey. Maness was the first to be buried in the Finger Cemetery, which at that time was part of James R. McIntyre’s farm. Wild blackberry vines had to be cleared away in order to dig the grave. A large group of people, from all walks of life, came out to pay their last respects to Maness. He was so well-loved it was said that strong men could be heard to weep.

McNairy Central Bobcats shutout Chester County By Brian Azevedo Sports Editor

The McNairy Central Bobcats made the trip to Henderson, Tenn. to take on the Chester County Eagles in one of their last district match ups of the regular season. The Bobcats played well, and came away with shutouts against the Eagles and the Lions of Scotts Hill.

McNairy Central Chester County

10 00

The Bobcats had payback on their minds from when they lost to the Chester County Eagles in the finals of the Independent Appeal Baseball Spectacular. The game opened up slow, and neither team was able to score a run in the first inning. Once the second inning got underway though, the Bobcats were able to break the 0-0 tie and put their first run on the board. With Chase Smith on the mound for the Bobcats, McNairy was able to keep Chester County at bay. Once the top of the fourth inning came around, the Bobcats were once again able to rally together and put two more runs on the board. With Chester County still unable to get to Smith, McNairy continued to pull away. In the fifth inning, the Bobcats exploded for their biggest inning of the game, and they pushed across four runs to take a 7-0 lead. Trying to extend their lead, the Bobcats were able to score one more run in the top of the sixth, before adding two more in the top of the seventh, taking a 10-0 lead moving into the final half inning. Chester County had one last chance to make the comeback, but it was Jonathan Nixon who came in a shut the door getting the win for the Bobcats. MCHS: 0 1 0 2 4 1 2 — 10 10 0 CCHS: 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 — 00 00 0 (MCHS) (Batting) Sidney Rickman: 2-5, 2 R; Thomas Stevens: 2-2, 2 R; Tyler Melton: 0-1; Austin Pace: 0-2, 1 RBI; Logan Roberts: 1 R; Blake McCalvin: 0-1, 1 R, 1 RBI; Logan Essary: 1 R; Matt Chandler: 0-3 1 RBI; Chase Smith: 0-3; Clay Dancer: 1-3, 1 R; BJ Dicky: 2-2, 1 R; Jonathan Nixon: 3-3, 1 R, 4 RBI

McNairy Bobcats Soccer players took on South Gibson last Tuesday and brought home a win of 3-1. Juan Miranda scored two goals during the game. Mitch Haendel, a Junior at Central, scored one goal and had one assist. Andrew Dunn had one goal and one assist as well. Isaac Cagle, a Senior at MCHS, had a whopping 26 defensive stops. The McNairy County Bobcats played Wayne County during their Senior Night last Thursday. The game resulted in a 4-4 tie. During the first half of the game, the offense came out strong, but so did the defense. The defense managed to keep the ball away from Wayne County during the majority of the first half of the game. The goalie stopped Wayne County from scoring, and McNairy’s offense came to win.

At half-time, the Bobcats were ahead 3-1. After half-time, however, Wayne County began to fight back. After they leveled the played field 3-3, the Bobcats put up their toughest efforts. After scoring one more against Wayne County for a 4-3 score, Wayne County quickly scored another goal before the game ended resulting in a tie. Juan Miranda, a senior for the Cats, scored three goals. Mitch Haendel, a Junior at Central, had one goal. Robert Boyette and Jason Ontiveros had one assist each. Senior, and Captain, Easton Hawkins broke his foot during the game and will be sidelined the rest of the season. “We have had a slough of tight games all season, but we have struggled to score,” says head coach Nick Cook, “In the past two games we have nearly quadrupled our season scoring. I am proud that our men have continued to fight and that they are seeing some success.”

8 5

The Lady Cardinals played a great game against the Lady Eagles, and they were able to take an early lead by scoring one run in the top of the first inning. With Gabby Morris in the circle for the Lady Cardinals, the Lady Eagles would have a tough time scoring any runs. For the first two innings, the Lady Eagles were not able to score any runs, but they were able to push two runs across in the bottom of the third inning and put themselves in the lead. However, the Lady Cardinals had an answer in the top of the fourth inning. Adamsville was able to push across two runs of their own and took back the lead. As Morris settled in, the Lady Eagles had a tough time scoring any more runs. Adamsville was able to score another run in the top of the sixth and they put themselves up 4-2 with only one inning left to play. In the top of the seventh inning, the Lady Cards were able to explode and put four runs on the board taking their lead to 5-2. The Lady Eagles had one last chance to make the comeback, and they made a great effort towards it. Chester County began to get to Morris and they were able to score three runs before Parker Davis came in to close the door. Chester County was only able to push across three runs in the bottom of the seventh and it was not enough to over take the Lady Cards.

The Lady Cardinals took on their rivals the Lady Lions, and it was a battle from the beginning. The Lady Cardinals were able to open the game up by scoring the first run in the top of the first inning and they were able to take a one run lead. As the bottom of the first inning came along, Gabby Morris stepped into the circle and went to work. Morris was able to keep the Lions hitters off balance and they were not able to score any runs. Through out the next three innings neither team was able to score any runs, and the Lady Cardinals was able to hang on to their one run lead. In the top of the fifth inning, the Lady Cardinals were able to push across their second run, and they were able to take a two run lead. With a two run lead, Morris came back out and continued to throw well and the Lady Lions had no answer. Morris shut the Lady Lions out, and she was able to record seven strikeouts in the process. The Lady Cardinals will have a high seed going into the district tournament, and look to play deep into the post season.

GOT GAS?

By Brian Azevedo Sports Editor

WE DO, TOO!

The Adamsville Cardinals made a trip to Parsons, Tenn., but could not come away with the much needed district win.

We’ve Had Gas Since 1946!

Riverside 11 Adamsville 03

The Cardinals started off the game strong against their district rivals, and they were able to push one run across in the top if the first inning. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, the Panthers were able to answer and score two runs of their own in the bottom of the second inning. Down 2-1, the Cardinals took their at-bats in the top of the second inning but they were unable to score any runs. Once the bottom of the second inning came along, the Panthers were able to continue their hot streak at the plate, scoring three runs and taking a 5-1 lead. The Cardinals had an answer in the top of the third, but they were only able to push across one run to cut the Panther lead to 5-2. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, the Panthers went on an offensive tear. Riverside was able to score two runs in each of the next three innings, and the Cardinals went into the top of the seventh and final inning down 11-2. Adamsville was able to rally and push a run across, but it was not enough to overtake the Panther lead. Adamsville fought, but they were not able to come away with the district win.

Lady Bobcats fall short in tough match-ups By Brian Azevedo Sports Editor

The Lady Bobcats made the trip to Savannah, Tenn. and Henderson, Tenn. to take on the Lady Tigers and the Lady Eagles. The Lady Cats played with great effort, but they could not come away with the win.

Hardin County McNairy Central

The Lady Bobcats started the game well against the Lady Tigers, but they were not able to push any runs across in the early goings. Fortunately for the Lady Cats, starting pitcher Kelly Beth Ernest had a good first couple of innings as well. Ernest was able to keep the Lady Tigers off of the scoreboard until the bottom of the third inning. In the bottom of the third, the Lady Tigers were able to get to Ernest and score five runs, putting the Lady Tigers up 5-0. Unfortunately for the Lady Bobcats, they were not able to answer in the top of the fourth inning, and the Lady Tigers held on to their lead. As the game moved forward, the Lady Tigers were able to score two runs in the bottom of the fifth and one in the bottom of the sixth giving them an eight to nothing lead over the Lady Bobcats. As the top of the sixth inning came around the Lady Bobcats were finally able to put some runs on the board. McNairy was able to score two, and cut the lead to 8-2. Unfortunately, that is all the runs that the Lady Bobcats were able to score, and they fell to the Lady Tigers. MCHS: 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 — 2 08 5 HCHS: 0 0 5 2 1 0 x — 8 11 5 (MCHS)

The Bobcats faced off against their district rivals, and they could not get the bats going til late in the game. McNairy fell behind quickly, when the Lady Eagles were able to score two runs in the bottom of the first inning, and one in the second. Down 3-0, the Lady Bobcats had ground to make up, and little time to do it. However, in the top of the fourth inning, the Lady Bobcats began to make their comback. McNairy was able to score two runs in the top of the fourth and one run in the fifth. With the game now tied, the contest intensified and the game was going to come down to the wire. Unfortunately for the Lady Cats, Chester County was able to score one run in the bottom of the sixth inning, and that gave them the lead that they would not give up. The Lady Cats had one more chance in the top of the seventh inning but they were not able to push any runs across, and they fell to the Lady Eagles 4-3.

Orbiting around Ramer’s Robot Parade the Third Grade

Ms. Gail Leatherwood’s 1st grade class studied about inventors and their inventions. The students were eager to apply their new knowledge of the process of creating an invention. Armed with imagination and curiosity, they set out to create a robot that could do something for them. They designed robots that were waterproof, cooked meals, read to them, helped babysit, cleaned up messes, did chores, mowed the lawn, had super cleaning powers, took out the trash, or ate the garbage and turned it into money, and (far and away the most popular function) did their homework.

Ms. Debbie Plunk’s third grade Science class at Adamsville Elementary School made projects about our solar system.  Some students did their research for reading class to complete their projects.  Other students were given either the inner or outer planets to research. Many chose to do the entire solar system!  They had a great time during this unit.

Selmer Middle School eighth graders were recently treated to a lesson for a lifetime of learning. Mrs. Molly Cheshier, coordinator for the Gear Up Grant, was at SMS to teach eighth graders how to navigate and use the site collegeforTn.org. This site allows students to store personal information as well as get information about colleges, jobs, financial aid, and many other subjects pertaining to their futures. Mrs. Molly spent an hour with each eighth grade class teaching them the importance of thinking toward the future as they enter McNairy Central High School in the fall. Selmer Middle School would like to thank Mrs. Cheshier for her timely and excellent presentation. Pictured with Mrs. Molly Cheshier are students Sophie Whitaker, Jamie King, and Abby Gray.

AHS students are making A’s By Amy Reid AHS Campus Reporter

The students in Kelly Wilder’s junior English class are making A’s—literally. Each semester, students make red letter A’s as a culminating activity for their unit on the novel The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The letters must include symbolism that demonstrates students’ understanding of the novel. For example, they often include Bibles to denote the significance Submitted Photo of religion in the book or roses to AHS students Laura Shriver and Shadden Busse represent the beauty found by the show off their A projects, which were based on characters in dark places. While in the classic novel The Scarlet Letter. the novel’s beginning it is intended to humiliate the main character for her adultery, it comes to symbolize “able” because of her willingness to help others in her community. The project allows students to showcase their individual talents as well as their creativity by using a variety of methods in their projects. This type of project is becoming unusual in our technology-driven society as it requires students to physically create something rather than making a digital presentation. “Students have told me that this project allows them to work hands on with their parents, something they haven’t done in many years. This time spent with family members is so valuable, and the students realize how beneficial it is. They are very proud of their finished work when they put forth their best effort,” said Wilder.
