Residents enjoy a bite to eat in downtown Bethel Springs last week at Moore’s Pizza. In the last year more than six new businesses have opened in the small town.

Business owners reinvest in hometown By Christen Coulon Managing Editor

ROCKABILLY FESTIVAL JUNE 14 Annual festival continues to grow in Selmer PAGE 3A

The Town of Bethel Springs has endured troubling times of late. In addition to the continuing recovery efforts from the 2013 tornado which battered the small town, residents are dealing with an expensive sewer project which suffers from mountains of unpaid residential bills which has now caused paying customer’s bills to skyrocket. The reduction of traffic due to the bypass caused many of the businesses to leave Bethel. Rental properties sit vacant due to the high water rates, Main Street in downtown is in disrepair, and overall property values continue to sink. The combined effects of all of these factors have been strangling the town for years.

Looking at the town in the beginning of 2014, it appeared that hope, like the town itself, was beginning to fade away. However, anyone who knows the people of Bethel Springs, should know they are not the type of people who will go down without a fight. Recently, citizens concerned with the state of the town, have come to its defense. Not content to sit back and watch the town they love die, several investors have stepped up and begun fighting for the very survival of Bethel Springs. In just a short period of time (the last 6-8 months), the town has begun a Business and Cultural Renaissance that has a lot of people talking. Spurred on by local investors, local government reinvestment in the town’s infrastructure, and the desire of its citizens once

again see their town thrive. The town’s mayor and long-time resident Kay Cox credited Gary Bizzell Sr. and Lew Perrigo with beginning the town’s recent revival. At the time, the only retail store in operation in the town was the Dollar General on the Highway 45 bypass. The two men opened what were then the town’s only restaurant and convenience stores just months apart. Cox said that after the two men opened their businesses in the town, others began to take notice. “I think that when people saw that rise again...I think they wanted to join in,” Cox said. “I would say that people are taking an interest in the town again, and they are sick of having to go out to town to get everything. I think that the people that are putting the

Rockabilly Highway Revival Festival takes over Selmer June 14 By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

The 6th annual Rockabilly Highway Festival will be June 14 in Selmer. The car show people will start rolling in around 8 a.m. and the vendors will be ready to serve the people by around 9:30 a.m, according to McNairy Regional Alliance Director of Chamber Programs Russell Ingle. Car show organizer Melanie King has worked very hard and is expecting about 200 cars, Ingle said. The Rockabilly Hall of Fame induction ceremony is the day before the festival at 6 p.m. at the Latta Building. Ingle said it is his understanding that Sandy Carroll, who was inducted last year, will return this year, possibly to help induct someone else or to participate in a big jam session. “If this year is anywhere near as magical as last year, people are going to wish they had been here,” Ingle said. “It’s going to be an amazing evening,” Ingle said. The Rockabilly Color Run will be at 8 a.m. There are teams coming from as far away as Memphis and Martin, Tenn. “It’s a fun run-walk,” Ingle said. It is not an official timed race. “It’s strictly for fun,” Ingle said.

For those who have never seen the Color Run, there will be rainbows of color and powder will be blown into the air, covering the runners, Ingle said. “We’ve got as many or more people coming from other communities as we have local folks,” Ingle said. “We definitely want to build a crowd,” Ingle said. The entertainment starts at 10 a.m. Local talent such as Maggie Whitaker will kick off the festival. Hanna Cox, who is around 13, sings a lot of Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. “She’s just a fabulous singer,” Ingle said. The Joe Rickman Band and the Rockabilly Band out of Memphis will be playing. Stunning Cunning will take the stage around 11 to 11.30 a.m. At 12:30 p.m., Harry Fontana, who is originally from Helsinki, Finland, will play. Fontana has been a U. S. resident only for the past couple of years. “He is absolutely a fan,” Ingle said about Fontana’s feeling about Rockabilly music. Fontana’s passion is the Sun records music. “That’s still very big in Europe,” Ingle said. Fontana is getting ready to tour Europe. “We changed some things so he could be a part of this event,” Ingle explained.

Fontana heard about the event from others who have played here and wanted to be a part of it. He will essentially play for free. Fontana is flying here in his own plane. Ingle shared a humorous story. Fontana called Ingle and asked him how far away the airport was from Selmer. Ingle asked him which airport, thinking he meant Memphis or Nashville, Tenn. “I thought it was funny because he caught me off guard,” Ingle said. Fontana said he meant the Robert Sibley Airport. Ingle told him it was five or 10 minutes away, depending on traffic. “He is excited,” Ingle said about Fontana. “He wants to see the murals and see where a lot of those people he’s become friends with in Nashville have played,” Ingle said. Ingle said that any other time Fontana would headline the festival. The Eskimo Brothers will headline the event. “This will probably be the best talent we have had on that stage during one event,” Ingle said. Car show awards will be given out between 3 and 3:30 p.m. Ingle said he expects between 3,000 and 5,000 people to attend the festival. Admission is free.

Water valve repair on Court Avenue slows Selmer traffic

“I’d love to get 5,000 and more. If it’s a good day, the potential is there,” Ingle said. “I’m excited about it. I love it. It’s proven to be our community putting its best foot forward,” Ingle said. Ingle said that a couple of months back a family from Southern California called, asking for hotel information. They were touring the state with extended family, with their grandparents. “They were big Fifties music fans and they are coming to stay for a couple of days. Somehow if we are attracting people from Southern Cal, that’s not bad,” Ingle said. In other news from MRA, Ingle said that shooting is concluding on the “Happy in McNairy” campaign. The campaign was initiated by the Youth Leadership Class and will include many businesses and individuals. “It’s a promotional piece. It’s a video shoot for the county,” Ingle said. The campaign is based on Pharrell Williams’ song “Happy”. “We’re excited about that. The kids are excited,” Ingle said. The youth class have gone to various businesses throughout the county and done shoots. “It should be interesting and we’re going to continue that until we get it finished,” Ingle said.

Officials eye fatherhood program By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Selmer Utility Division workers replace water valves along Court Avenue in Selmer. The division said that the valves would not shut off last Thursday. No water customers lost service according to SUD Director Richard Ashe. “We had a couple of water valves that would not cut off completely and we are updating--putting in new ones where we don’t have that issue (any) more,” Ashe said.

A meeting was held May 16 to discuss implementing a pilot program for incarcerated fathers, according to a press release from the Southwest Human Resources Agency. In attendance was County Mayor Ronnie Brooks, Sheriff Guy Buck, General Sessions Judge Van McMahan and SWHRA staff. The program would provide incarcerated fathers the means to prosper outside of jail. The proposed program will give fathers the necessary skills to find and keep a job, improve their parenting skills and address other issues as identified. SWHRA’s initial goal is to establish the program in McNairy and Hardin Counties in the beginning and to expand it to the eight counties served by the agency. About 700,000 inmates are released from state and federal prison each year. Around two-thirds of these inmates break the law again within three years. This program is designed to help those being released with responsible parenting skills and the economic stability they need to be successful fathers and employees. Workforce Investment Director Jimmy Bell said that his staff will provide case management for participants and that collaboration will be a key factor in the success of the program. About 15 agencies and organizations have been identified as possible partners in this endeavor. SWHRA plans to have this program up and running in two months. For more information, please call Mike Smith, Executive Director of SWHRA at (731) 989-5111. In the coming months, the IA will follow-up on the progress of this program for our county inmates.

Last Saturday, local political candidates took the opportunity to literally serve their constituents (breakfast) at a meet the candidates event in Selmer at the Rockabilly Cafe.

Recently Three lucky McNairy County residents struck it rich playing the Tennessee Lottery. The three winning tickets purchased in Adamsville, Guys and Milledgeville respectively netted the winners between $50,000 and $150,000 each. The lucky Adamsville resident, Tina Hollingsworth won $75,000 playing Lady Jumbo Bucks. Hollingsworth purchased her winning ticket at Sunrise Market & Grill in Adamsville. The fortuitous Guys guy, Jonathan Posey played the ever-popular instant game, Jumbo Bucks and scrached off a $50,000 winner. Posey purchased his lucky ticket at C Baby’s Studio 45 in Guys. Finally, Selmer resident Edward Taylor, III won $150,000 playing Giant Jumbo Bucks. Taylor purchased his ticket at the White Oak Shell in Milledgeville. Taylor told lottery officials that he “freaked out” when he realized that he won $150,000 playing Giant Jumbo Bucks. He said he plans on using his winnings to buy a house.

Local couple develops curriculum to fight pornography By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Luke and Erica DeLavergne, of Adamsville, have developed a curriculum on how to protect children from internet dangers. Luke, who is the Director of the Exchange Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse for McNairy County, said the program is designed to prevent the problems that the center deals with after they have occurred. Luke said that 80 to 90 percent of the cases that come to the center involve serious pornography issues. “The program is designed to prevent people from allowing their children to be exposed early and also encouraging adults to make sure they are focusing on parenting,” Luke said. Luke said that in almost every case he deals with at the Carl Perkins Center, the perpetrator is overexposed to pornogaphy. In the last five years, Luke said, there has been an increase of older children, sometimes siblings, who are sexually abusing younger children.

These young abusers are often exposed to pornogaphy early and it is often surreptitiously obtained from their parents. “They want to act those feelings out. They won’t know how to handle the feelings that come out,” Luke said. They will act out these feelings on whoever is closest and easiest, Luke said. “We want to stop that. That is the goal of the program,” Luke said. Luke is a minister at Eastside Church of Christ in Selmer. Though Luke and Erica did not start the Covenant Eyes website, which offers internet tracking, reporting and filtering software, they were inspired by it. The curriculum is also called by the same name as the website. “We’re focusing on churches and the idea behind it is that, as Christians, we have made a covenant with God for purity. Once you commit your life to Christ, you’re supposed to be a person of purity and your goal as a parent is insuring that your children are also committed to purity,” Luke said. Luke said that issues are coming up mostly on tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices, rather than

computers. This is because it is more difficult to monitor what kids are looking at on these devices. “They can get into a lot of trouble,” Luke said about kids on these devices. The curriculum is spreading to churches beyond the DeLavergnes’ Eastside Church of Christ. One is Chewalla Baptist Church. They have also presented another curriculum call Stewards of Children to Lakeview Baptist Church in Selmer. “We would love to be able to come to any church in McNairy County,” Luke said. Luke is happy with the feedback he has received so far. “The feedback that we’ve received is really positive. Everybody from all ages at Chewalla came up to us really excited about the program,” Luke said. The program was created in the last month, Luke said. “We would love to be able to provide it to any group interested in protecting their children,” Luke said. Anyone wishing more information on Luke and Erica DeLavergne’s Covenant Eyes internet safety program may call Luke at the Carl Perkins Center at (731) 646-3627.

McNairy County Schools 2014 Teachers of the Year

Dominion helps send Michie Students to D.C.

Each year the McNairy County School System honors a Teacher of the Year from each of the district’s eight schools. The building-level teachers of the year are selected by the respective faculties from among the teachers who have at least five years of service. They compete each spring for the honor of McNairy County Teacher of the Year, and they are honored publicly at the Teacher Appreciation Breakfast just before school dismisses for the summer. The 2014 honorees are (AES) Sherrie Wilson, (AJSHS) Bobby Isbell, (BSES) Stacey Volner, (MCHS) Alicia Tull, (MES) Gina Foust, (RES) Lora Leigh Sweat, (SES) Madine Nichols, and (SMS) Lynn Plunk. From among the school teachers of the year, the McNairy County Teacher of the Year emerges following an application and interview process. This year’s district-level honoree is Madine Nichols, a 20-year veteran who teaches at Selmer Elementary School. She will be featured in a subsequent article. The local Teacher of the Year program is affiliated with the program that produces the Tennessee Teacher of the Year and eventually names the National Teacher of the Year.

Dan Poteet, Senior Manager, Business Development and government affairs coordinator Travis Cutler from Dominion Resources Services present a $2,500 check to Debra Steen’s Michie Elementary School Science class for expenses for their June trip to Washington, D. C. Steen’s class won Tennessee Elementary School of the Year and is a National Elementary finalist in the National Energy Education Development contest. Two students received partial funding for the $550 plus expenses cost per student of the trip, but the class is raising funds for the rest. Poteet said he had fallen in love with the county and Cutler added that this was an easy thing to do. Poteet exhorted the students to bring home first prize. Steen’s class has placed in the top three in the competition in the last two years and hopes to win first place this year. It was announced earlier that Dominion had bought the solar farms that previous owner Strata Solar is constructing. Also on hand for the presentation was County Mayor Ronnie Brooks, Director of Schools John Prince, Michie Mayor Anthony Smith and MES Principal Wayne Henry.

BUSINESS RENAISSANCE FROM PAGE 1A

money into the town are people who have lived here a long time and know the history and the people of Bethel Springs. “I think for these people to come in and want to invest their money...it impresses me more than if some who came from outside looking to invest.” Bizzell, who is the father of one of the town’s aldermen Gary Bizzell Jr., returned to town when he retired from his career in May 2013. “When I came home, there was nothing there,” Bizzell said. “There was no gas station, no stores and there was nothing. The town had just died.” That is when Bizzell, who still owned a property in which he had run a video store out of in the 1980s decided to open a convenience store, Gary’s Place right next to the town hall in Downtown Bethel Springs. “It was time for someone to put some money back into this town, and it really needed it,” Bizzell said. Bizzell said that he his glad to see other investors come into the town. Bizzell said that if the town can get Main Street fixed and add some more businesses it could be a critical turning point to getting the town back on track. Perrigo, who himself is a former Bethel Springs Alderman and former restaurateur, opened his business, Bethel BBQ across from Dollar General on the bypass, he saw an opportunity to make money, return to an industry he enjoys, and serve the people of his town. However, he said that it is up to the people not the business owners if the town will continue to grow. “It would be nice if we can get in the habit of keeping the people here locally,” Perigo said. “When people realize that we have a gas station, we have a dollar store to get your essential needs and we got a couple of restaurants, so now

people might start thinking that ‘I don’t have to go to Selmer, Corinth or Jackson. I can get something right here in town.” Like Bizzell, Robert Moore retired and saw an unmet need in the town as an opportunity to open a successful business. Moore recently opened Moore’s Pizza in Bethel Springs at 4011 Main Street Downtown Bethel Springs. Moore was born in Bethel Springs, and has operated several successful businesses throughout his life including the former Dixie Truck Stop in Selmer. He said that the people of the town are not just patronizing his business, he said most are very proud to see these new business come in and many see it as a sign that things are getting better. “They have come out and thanked me for opening the business,” Moore said. In addition to being the first restaurant to reopen in downtown Bethel Springs, Moore wanted to set his business apart from the rest in the area, so he decided to offer an unbelievably large delivery area with no delivery fee. “We have delivered to Ramer,” Moore said. “We will pretty much deliver anywhere in the county.” To order or get delivery of one of Moore’s pizzas call (731) 577-0058. In addition to opening a pizza place Moore has purchased the entire strip of commercial property adjacent to his pizza restaurant. Moore has also opened a pool hall, Moore’s Pool Hall next door to the pizza restaurant, and Moore recently leased the property next door to Bethel’s newest business, Aunt Bee’s Thrift Store. I have always wanted to run a second -hand thrift store, so when we moved over here this opportunity came alive, I took it,” Aunt Bee’s owner Velma Beaterice Floyd said. “And I think the new businesses opening up here are very important to Bethel Springs.” Floyd said business has been good since she opened, but she said that she feels it will be even better once more people get used to doing their shopping in Bethel Springs.

Floyd’s optimism that business will pick up even more may be spot on, as soon another new business is set to open across the street from her thrift store. Bizzell had planned originally to open a restaurant shortly after he opened his convenience store, but a fire shortly before the store was set to open delayed his plans. Now, Bizzell soon hopes to compete his as of yet unnamed restaurant located on Main Street in Bethel in the next couple of weeks. The new restaurant will serve steak, fish shrimp, pork chops and pizza. And while it may seem that these individuals have invested with their hearts to help save the town they love, each business owner we spoke with didn’t see it that way. Each of them said that they wanted to serve their town and see it grow again, but each said that their investments were not done out of charity. These were business decisions and these business owners feel that Bethel Springs is a good place to invest and make money. Cox said these people here will have to prove that things can work here again and she said that she is just hoping and praying to God that it will happen. Floyd has even suggested a sort of mini chamber of commerce for business owners in Bethel to help market the town and its business to the public. At the last town meeting in Bethel Springs, Floyd suggested putting up a sign on the highway advertising all of the businesses, and has encouraged other business owners to work together to make something like this happen. Time will tell if Bethel Spring’s recent business boom is an aberration or a trend of great things to come for the small town.. What is certain, is the resolve of this group of business owners to make these businesses succeed. Through their work, the seeds of change have been planted in Bethel, and now it is up to the residents to see if they are going help nurture their new businesses and help their community continue to grow.

McNAIRY VOICES Is the country doing right by its veterans?

By Christen Coulon Managing Editor

Do you love McNairy County, but feel that in time it could become an even better place to live? Is there a specific problem or issue you would like to address with the community? If so, I encourage you to take charge and begin the process of positive change by opening a community dialogue regarding whatever locally significant topic concerns you. If you write a letter to the editor or opinion article...We can offer you a forum to share your concerns with tens of thousands of your fellow residents. This is your chance to make yourself heard and to spread the word about the issues that are on your mind. In addition to penning your own opinion we also welcome responses to previously published editorial columns. This year’s upcoming election is a great time to get involved and to voice your opinion on the topics of national, state and local importance that matter to you. The First Amendment right to freedom of speech is one of the greatest treasures our founding fathers bestowed upon the citizens of the United States. The late American film critic, journalist and screenwriter Roger Ebert summed up the importance of exercising your freedoms by saying, “I begin to feel like most Americans don’t understand the First Amendment, don’t understand the idea of freedom of speech, and don’t understand that it’s the responsibility of the citizens to speak out.” Don’t rely on anyone else to speak on your behalf. No one else knows what is truly on your mind. Freedoms, much like the muscles in your body will wither and die if left unused, stand up and exercise your right to free speech this week.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

McNairy County Health Care resident thanks entertaining volunteers I want to thank all of the volunteers that give their time and effort to McNairy County Health Care residents. Pat Simmons, activity director, tries to please all of us and that's not easy. She scheduled Russ, a man who sang music from Elvis, Marty Robbins, George Jones, Rickey Nelson and many others, especially love songs. My high school and college days were here again. Super Talent! Cozy-n-Mez-n-Griff gave us a talent magic show Sundy afternoon. Griff, age 18 months, did the magic stick and the ring slip. Cozy and Mez, Griff's parents, incorporated the audience into this magic. Christine and Larry tried to catch Mez at his slight of hand tricks. This magic shop is This, That and The Other in Counce, TN. Great Show! Many of our residents love the 60's. We're the kids who were dragging main, hollering and climbing out of car windows and played our radio loudly. Sound familiar today? Thank you Russ for bringing us smiles and got our bodies giggling and swaying to the music. Thank you Cozy-n-Mez-n-Griff for making us laugh and be amazed. Thank you volunteers and the Independent Appeal for your positive attitude towards seniors. Ann Huggins Selmer, TN

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Bowers thanks Adult Education Program supporters On behalf of the McNairy County Literacy Council, I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported our Adult Education Program this year, and a very special thanks to Janet Rail and the Independent Appeal for once again sponsoring the Love of Literacy Dessert Tasting, which has become our biggest fund-raiser. We raised well over $5000.00 this year at this event to help our literacy program. As most of you know, funding by the state to adult education was slashed last year, and the Literacy Council has tried to find funding to help keep the program going. The need is great, as about 24 percent of McNairy County adults do not have a high school diploma, according to the latest census. Without that diploma, job prospects are dim, as most all employers now require a diploma or a high school equivalency degree. We intend to continue to do all that we can to see that this program flourishes. This year we have been blessed with an extremely dedicated teacher, Ms. Micki Greer and a hard working supervisor, Mr. Ryan Franks. Ryan supervises three coun-

ties, including McNairy, Hardin and Wayne. These two have worked to see that our students receive everything they need to succeed in this program, and for that we are so thankful. We will have over 40 students who have passed their test by the end of the school year in June. That is amazing, since we didn’t know at the beginning of the school year whether we would even have an adult ed program. Every member of the Literacy Council has dedicated their time, resources, and energy to the success of this program and for that I am eternally grateful. I would like to invite everyone to our graduation ceremony which will be held on Sunday, June 29, at 2:00 p.m. at Selmer Middle School. These graduates have overcome many obstacles to earn this diploma, and it would be wonderful to see a good crowd there, showing support for these graduates and for this program. Carolyn Bowers, President McNairy County Literacy Council

Miss Tennessee attended Rockabilly Pageant Sunday

By Toni Watson Contributor

The recent national holiday, teamed with the many Decoration Days at local cemeteries, has left me thinking about all those individuals who have been so much a part of our lovely city. So, I went on a search for those names that might stir your memories and have put them together in a sort of scavenger hunt for you to enjoy. This way, you can spend a bit of time with your friends or family as you search out the answers. I’ll provide all the answers next week. Have fun challenging your memories or just taking a bit of time to visit around town. 1. Starting at the city limits with our Junior and Senior High School: The wonderful sports fields have before them a memorial plaque in memory of ____________ Lendon Martin 1940 – 1984. Remember his first name? 2. Headed toward town on the green and white signs: What year was Ashley Durham Miss Tennessee? What was Dewey Phillips’ noted saying? “Tell ‘em __________________!” 3. The Ray Blanton monument newly installed

by the highway has a number at each top corner. The left number designates what number state Tennessee was to join the Union on June 1, 1796. The right number notes what number governor Blanton was to serve the state. What are those numbers? 4. The plaques at the War Memorial Park disclose many an Adamsville citizen was part of the fallen dead we recently recognized. The countries in which they died are literally all over the world: Italy, Korea, Germany, Philippines, Vietnam, etc. But four of the plaques all note the same country. In what country did four of our soldiers die? 5. Keep going towards town and just before you get to Pettigrew’s Rexall, there’ll be a little home with a sign out front. “Mama ____________’s House.” 6. There’s many a red brick under foot on Main Street that notes a past business or a business owner. 112 Main includes Nora’s Café, Bomar’s Cafeteria, and __________ Grocery (1939-1984) 7. You’ll find a brick that proudly declares our Adamsville Lions Club was established in 19_____. 8. Then there’s that

brick that says exactly what I feel about this town: “They loved this town.” Bid and Mamie __________. 9. Now she’s still alive and continuing to serve on Main Street, but Maylene Barber’s fifty years of working was celebrated in the year 20___ - says one of the bricks. 10. When you cross over to the other side of the street, you’ll come to a brick that celebrates “Tarzan” Crow as Chief of Police. Remember his real first name? 11. There’s equal recognition for James Butler as a leading citizen of town. Remember the position he held? 1953 – 2002 12. Seems there was a grocery store that a father and son had from 1952 – 1965. Got those names in your memory? T.B. __________ and Son is what the brick reads. 13. If you look at all the bricks, you’ll find two pointing to verses in the Holy Bible. One is Psalm 121. The other is out of Proverbs. Got it? 14. Don’t leave our elementary school out of the list of those whose memories have made a difference in town. A favorite second grade teacher’s name is

inscribed on a bench by the flagpole: Patsy Hardin ____________. 15. Keep going down Main Street to the Post Office Building and tell me who was President of the United States when the present building opened the first time. 16. Can’t leave Buford Pusser out of this. Where was the trial held in which he was declared innocent of assault against a Mississippian? Check the memorial wall in the city park if you can’t remember. 17. Then head out of town so you can come back in to see the green and white signs by the SawMeal and NaNa’s. They’ll tell you all about girls fast pitch baseball team that were world series champions in _200_____ and the 14 year old all stars who were Tennessee state champions in 200___ and 200____. Now those last questions don’t go very far back in history but the memory of those tournament games has got to make someone happy. You have a good time getting the answers to these questions and then see if you can match them up to the correct answers I’ll provide next week.

AHS band marches in Washington for Memorial Day Parade By Destini Ross Staff Writer

The Adamsville Jr/Sr High School Band marches through Washington, D.C. for the Memorial Day Parade.

Submitted Photo

The Adamsville Junior/Senior High School Cardinal Marching Band have turned a lot of heads winning state titles on an almost annual basis. This year, the Cardinal Band has turned so many heads they were invited by Congressman Marsha Blackburn to perform in the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington D.C. On May 26, the AJSHS Band after many long hours of fund raising and hard work finally got to perform in the Memorial Day Parade. Cardinal Senior Anna Cooper said that it was a once in a lifetime experience. “It was an incredible feeling,” Anna said, “to know we were selected to represent our state in the parade and to honor the many who gave their lives so we could experience this adventure.” Band Director Frankie Congiardo said it was an amazing experience for the band. “It was a real honor to go and represent the state,” said Congiardo, “Memorial Day is a big deal in to the vets in Washington D.C., and to share and be a part of that was pretty special.”

Four Bobcats named to West Tennessee All-Star game By Brian Azevedo Sports Editor

The Jackson Generals, who are an AA affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, will be hosting their seventh annual West Tennessee All-Star game. The game will be played on Wednesday, June 4 at Pringles Park and the first pitch will be thrown at 6:05 p.m. It is an honor to be selected to play in this game, and there are four Bobcats that will be taking the field this season. First baseman Clay Dancer and third baseman Matt Chandler, who will both be playing for Bethel University next season, will be playing for their future coach, Rusty Thompson as they take the field for the Gray Team. Pitcher Blake McCalvin and outfielder Jonathan Nixon, who are both unsigned, will be taking the field for Freed Hardeman coach Jonathan Estes playing for the Red Team. These players had a great season for the Bobcats, and are being rewarded for the great play by getting to play an extra game against some of the best competition in the region. They will get to have a taste of the big leagues, as they will be battling it out at Pringles Park and playing in a professional stadium. The Generals do have a game that afternoon, and the All-Star game will take place after. The gates will be opening at 5 p.m. and admission will be only $5 at the gate. This is a great honor for these local players, and they need county support as they take on the best athletes in the region on the diamond.

New faces on the diamond for the Cardinals/Bobcats By Brian Azevedo Sports Editor

Both the McNairy Central Bobcats and the Adamsville Cardinals are still busy on the diamond, as summer tournaments are underway. Neither team had to go very far this past week, as Adamsville played host to some good summer baseball and teams from all over. Teams from Bolivar, Rossville, Middleton and Westview all came down to play some great ball and to see what they might have in the lineup for next season. That is the great thing about summer baseball for both the Bobcats and the Cardinals is that we get to see some new faces on the diamond. “Playing in the summer allows us to do a lot of different things that it is hard to do during the season,” said Adamsville Head Coach Rennard Woodmore. “We are able to get a lot of young guys some experience, and we are able to put different lineups on the field to see how we can produce.” Both the Bobcats and the Cardinals have youth on the field, and these games are a great way for the young players to break into high school baseball. “There is not as much pressure during the summer games,” said McNairy Head Coach Brian Franks. “Although we always play to win, we do not have to worry about district games or elimination games and our players can just be loose and have fun playing a great game. We get to see our young guys perform and we get to move some players around to see how they fair at other positions.” It is important for the coaches to have an idea of what their lineup will be early so that they can have a plan for the season, but the biggest thing about summer ball is so that everyone has a chance to take the field. “Its great to get to see our young guys play,” said Woodmore. “They come out with excitement and they play with heart because they know that this is their chance to show what they can do to make it into the lineup in the upcoming season. You can watch a player try out, and you can take them through drills, but you do not really know what a player has until you get him on the field in real game time situations.” There will be plenty of time to see how their players will fair, as both the Bobcats and the Cardinals will be busy summer playing all around the region. Both teams will be headed to Middleton starting Thursday of this week, and both teams will be looking to Staff Photo by Brian Azevedo

Reforming college football Part 1: competition By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer

Margins of victory of 60, 70 or even 80 points have been known to occur in college football. The practice of allowing Football Bowl Subdivision or the top-tier teams play the Football Championship Subdivision or the lower-tier teams has been criticized and proposals have been made to correct this problem. About two-thirds of FCS schools play FBS teams and about 80 percent of FBS teams play FCS schools. Over 85 percent of the schools in the six FBS power conferences play FCS schools. FBS teams win over 80 percent of their games with FCS teams. These lopsided games are boring, cheat the fans who buy tickets to the games and increase the risk of injury to the weaker team. In certain ways, they even go against the true interests of the teams. They weaken the strength of schedule of a FBS team, which was taken into account under the old Bowl Championship Series and will continue to be a factor that will be considered by the playoff selection committee beginning this season. These games give a FCS team an extremely low chance of a win, in addition to leaving the weaker team banged up, as I said before. If playing these games is such a bad idea, why do they do it? These games give the FBS team an extremely high probablility of an easy and lopsided victory. It also gives them a very low chance of getting key players injured and allows them to rest starters. A victory in one of these games—and they do occur occasionally—can be very good for a FCS school’s football program. Playing one of these inter-subdivision games can also lead to a hefty payday for the underdog. What is best solution for this problem? The most extreme remedy is banning all FBS-FCS games. The problem with doing that is some FCS teams are quite good and some FBS teams are really bad. Lopsided games can also occur when two FBS or two FBS teams play. Blowouts can even occur when a team is not as bad as the score but just plays really badly on that day. Oregon, one of the best FBS teams over the past few years, routinely blows out Tennessee, which is not the worst FBS team. (I would like to see Tennessee go back to playing UCLA as they once did, rather than Oregon from the PAC 12, though as a USC man, I hate to admit, the Bruins have improved over the past year or so.) John Feinstein, writing in the Washington Post, has proposed a modified ban on FBS-FCS games. Under his proposal, only the 20 teams that make the FCS tournament would be eligible to play FBS teams. I would add that perhaps the top 25 FBS teams should be banned

from playing FCS teams. The NCAA currently allows FBS schools to count one victory against a FCS team against the total of the six wins it takes to become bowl eligible. I would end that practice. I think a bowl-eligible team should have a winning record against teams in its own subdivision. I think the BCS made a mistake when it weakened strength of schedule as a factor in bowl selection and rankings about 10 years ago. I think the new playoff selection committee should give more weight to this factor, which would reduce blowouts in the college football championship game, though how you would require them to do that is unclear. I will talk more about strength of schedule in the next part on the playoff, but my point here is that if strength of schedule is weighted more in evaluating a team, they would have an incentive to play a stronger schedule and fewer “cupcake” games. What do you think? Should FBS-FCS games be limited in any way? If so, how? This is the first in a series on reforming college and professional football. Read future issues of the Independent Appeal for the second part of this series on the new college football playoff that will begin this season.

Pickwick Landing State Park Among Top 100 Family Friendly Fishing and Boating Destinations June 14

By Christen Coulon Managing Editor

Pickwick Landing State Park located just a few miles outside of McNairy County has recently been named at one of the Top 100 Family Friendly Fishing and Boating Destinations. Pickwick Landing was among only three other state parks in Tennessee to receive this designation. Paris Landing State Park and Tims Ford State Park were the other Tennessee State Parks listed among the Top 100 Family Friendly Places to Boat and Fish in the U.S., according to Take Me Fishing, whose first Top 100 list was released this month. Park and recreation areas in 24 states were represented in the Top 100. Pickwick Landing is known for great sport fishing and numerous local and national fishing tournaments. The tailwaters provide excellent fishing for Sauger, White and Yellow Bass, Striped Bass and Catfish. The award comes just days before the state’s annual Free Fishing Day in Tennessee scheduled for this Saturday. During the event, the TWRA allows all residents and non-residents to fish without a license. Children that are 15 years of age or younger may fish without a license for the entire week starting on Free Fishing Day and continuing through the following Friday. Children younger than 13 may fish without a license at any time of the year. “We are thrilled to have three of our great Tennessee State Parks on the list of family-friendly boating and fishing destinations in the country,” Deputy Commissioner Brock Hill said. The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation’s Take me Fishing campaign initiated the nationwide vote to provide families and outdoor enthusiasts with a recommended list of the best family-friendly places to experience the joys of boating and fishing as the weather warms up around the country. Criteria for the top places to boat and fish included having a public body of water within an hour of major city and good fishing opportunities. “We enlisted the help of state fish and wildlife agencies to identify popular locations, and asked fishing and boating enthusiasts who belong to our communities to vote on their favorite spots that are easily accessible and where the fish are known to bite most often,” RBFF President and CEO Frank Peterson said.

Adamsville Elementary School and Farm Bureau recently hosted a poster contest with winners including 1st place- Blythe Burcham (not pictured), 2nd place- Jaden Cotner, and 3rd place- Kara Conway. Congratulations to all of you!

Six McNairy County 4-H Members attended Tennessee 4-H Congress March 30 – April 2, 2014. The visits with Senator Gresham and State Representative Barrett Rich were some of the highlights of the event. Tennessee 4-H Congress gives 4-H’ers the opportunity to learn about the day-to-day functioning of state government by assuming the roles of state representatives and senators. Approximately 400 high-school-age 4-H’ers from all over the state met to become legislators and form a “junior” state Congress. They had an opportunity to debate and vote on youth-oriented bills in the House and Senate Chambers. “Tennessee 4-H Congress is one of the highlights for our 4-H program,” said Julie Harstin, McNairy County 4-H Extension Agent. “The event helps youth better understand government and the legislative process and how they can be a part of this citizenship experience in order to make a difference.” In addition to learning about state govern-

ment, delegates participated in a number of other activities including the Tennessee 4-H Congress Pageant, a luncheon on the General Jackson Showboat, the election of the 2015 Tennessee 4-H Congress officers, the inaugural ball and a service-learning project. Local businesses and organizations are a very important partner in making this possible for McNairy County 4-H Members, because their sponsorship pays the registration fees for the delegates. Our sponsors this year, to whom we are entirely grateful, are:  Adamsville Lions Club, BanCorp South, Bank of McNairy County, Home Banking Company, Edward D. Jones & Company, McNairy County Farm Bureau, and Selmer Lions Club. McNairy County Extension offers programs in agriculture and natural resources, 4-H youth development, family and consumer sciences, and resource development. The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the McNairy County governments are cooperating.  UT Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment.

McNairy County 4-H Members compete at Western Regionals Ricky Mathenia McNairy County 4-H

Seven McNairy County 4-H Members competed in the Western Region 4-H Horse Judging Contest, Thursday, April 10 at Triple P Arena in Decaturville. The youth practiced once or twice weekly for about a month in preparation for this contest.  Horses were judged at halter, and while performing in the ring.  The team achieved some improvement in its performance class scores over those in previous contests, with Walker Massengill and Sarah Wallis getting a 100% score in the Western Pleasure class, and Victoria Taylor achieving a 100% score in the Hunter Under Saddle class.  Thanks to Mr. H. Ray Wilson for the picture in the arena, and to Volunteer 4-H Leader Ray Prather, who has coached this event for three years.  McNairy County Extension offers programs in agriculture and natural resources, 4-H youth development, family and consumer sciences, and resource development.  The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture and McNairy County governments are cooperating.  UT Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment.

Bethel Springs Elementary School Students provided $30,000 to help provide for the Ronald McDonald House. Christie Roach BSES Campus Reporter

Bethel Springs Elementary School students are participating in the Pop Tab program to support the Ronald McDonald House. The little seemingly insignificant tab you pull to open your aluminum cans helps the Ronald McDonald House. Last year alone, the pull tabs provided $30,000 to help provide a safe and comfortable place that families can call â&#x20AC;&#x153;homeâ&#x20AC;? while their children recover in nearby hospitals. The Pop Tab program is an environmentally smart, community friendly program which focuses on separating the pull tab from the aluminum beverage cans. The tab is a higher grade of aluminum than the can, resulting in a higher dollar return per pound than cans. The pop tabs are recycled and the proceeds go directly to families in need who are staying at the house. Anyone and everyone can collect pop tabs! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy, fun, and a great project for schools and community groups. If you would like to help the Ronald McDonald House, pull your tabs and drop them off at Bethel Springs Elementary School.
