Independent Appeal Making McNairy County headlines for more than 114 years
Kyle pleads guilty in child’s death By Jeff York Contributor
An Adamsville woman pleaded guilty in the death of her boyfriend’s son. Kyrie Kyle entered a guilty plea in McNairy County Circuit Court on Oct. 6. Kyle pleaded to the amended lesser-included offense of second degree murder for the death of child victim Asher Dilworth in August of 2014. Kyle was sentenced as a Mitigated Range I Offender to the presumptive statutory sentence
of 13.5 years to be served at 100 percent. She was given pre-trial jail credit for the time she has been in custody since her arrest in 2014. Kyle’s original charge had been First-Degree Felony Murder, Aggravated Child Abuse, Aggravated Assault, and Aggravated Child Neglect or Endangerment. She admitted to police she had pushed the young boy into a dresser and then left him alone in his room for 30 minutes. Asher was carried after a short stay at McNairy Regional Hospital to Le
Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis only to die three days after the accident. Kyle was the then girlfriend of Anthony Dilworth, the father of the victim. She was also 20 weeks pregnant at the time of the incident which led to the death of Asher Dilworth. Family members of the victim were present for the entry of the plea and sentencing, and were given an opportunity to give victim impact statements and testimony. In an open letter to Gov. Bill
Haslam, Ashley Taylor, mother of the victim, wrote a desperate plea for the Tennessee Governor to step in and advocate officials speed up the process in her son’s murder case. “You may recall a little boy, Asher Drake Dilworth, who was murdered in McNairy County in August of 2014,” Taylor wrote. “Kyrie Kyle, the girlfriend of his father, shoved him into a dresser knocking him unconscious and left him there instead of seeking medical attention. He was brain dead three days later after being
airlifted to Le Bonheur in Memphis.” The boy spent three days in hospitals, undergoing emergency brain surgery and suffering from violent seizures after the incident in McNairy County. The official police report stated the boy also had several bruises and teeth marks that were caused over a period of time. A judge had rejected claims of Miranda rights violations that were made in August 2014. (Head News Writer Jeff Whitten contributed to this story.)
Selmer officer recovers from carbon monoxide poisoning By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor
A Selmer Police officer continues to recover after suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning. Officer Michael Gilbert was transported to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital on Oct. 12 when fellow officers replied to a call for help around 2 a.m. Gilbert, who was released from the hospital later that day, radioed for help from his patrol car. The officer said he couldn’t move, according to a report filed by Selmer Police Officer Robert Heathcock. Heathcock and off-
duty McNairy County Sheriff’s Deputy Rick Finley responded to the police department, finding Gilbert in the patrol car and complaining of severe fatigue and loss of motor function. “He stated the last thing he remembers is pulling up to the PD, becoming very weak and then waking up hours later,” said Heathcock in the report. “He didn’t know how he managed to call the other patrol car,” added Selmer Police Chief Neal Burks. The Selmer Fire Department was called to test the 2010 Dodge

A McNairy Central High School student was injured in an accident involving a McNairy County school bus last week.
involving county school bus By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor
A McNairy Central High School student is home recovering following a two-vehicle accident last week. The 17-year-old was released Monday from North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, Miss. after spending five days in the hospital from injuries sustained in the wreck. The juvenile was transported to Magnolia Regional Health
Center in Corinth following an accident involving a McNairy County school bus on Oct. 14. The accident happened around 8 a.m. as the school bus – driven by Wayne Maxedon – picked up students on Highway 142. The bus and the 2004 Grand Jeep Cherokee were the only two vehicles involved. Both were traveling west on Highway 142, according to the report of the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Ten students were aboard
the bus when the accident happened, according to McNairy County Director of Schools Wayne Henry. “A couple of them were taken by their parents to the hospital in Savannah and checked out,” said Henry. “They all checked out okay with no serious injuries.” Three units with the Selmer Fire Department responded to the accident which blocked both lanes of Highway 142 for about a hour.

A former insurance agent has been charged with theft and identity theft in McNairy County. Barry Bynum was indicted on charges of theft over $250,000 and identity theft by the McNairy County Grand Jury on Oct. 10, according to District Attorney General Mike Dunavant. The charges were the result of an ongoing investigation by the Identity Crimes Investigative Unit of the Tennessee Department of Safety. Bynum was served an arrest warrant and taken into custody on Oct. 14. He remains in the McNairy County Jail with a $100,000
bond set by the court. Bynum was formally arraigned Monday in McNairy County Circuit Court with Circuit Judge Weber McCraw presiding. Bynum requested a reduction of bond which was opposed by the state and denied by the court. Bynum informed the court he did not have sufficient funds with which to retain counsel. McCraw set the case for status review on attorney for Oct. 24. The Securities and Insurance Divisions of the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance revoked Bynum’s insurance license and imposed a $3,000 civil penalty on him last

County school building plan moves forward By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
New school construction has moved one step closer to reality. The McNairy County Board of Education voted Oct. 13 to send an outline drafted by Director of Schools Wayne Henry to the McNairy County County Commission Budget and Education Committees. Construction would probably begin with additions to Adamsville Elementary School
in the spring of 2017 and in the fall of next year for the new Selmer Elementary School. Architect Jev Vaughn would receive $828,000 over 20 months from the projects. Additions at AES include 16 classrooms, an administrative office, a cafeteria, a band room and a multi-purpose building. Total square footage for additions would be 26,000 to 32,000 square feet, Henry said. Selmer Elementary would get 36 new classrooms, an ad-
ministrative office and a cafeteria for a total square footage of around 86,000. The Adamsville addition would be L-shaped, adjacent with the soccer field and connected to the existing gym with an awning and crosswalk. The new SES would have a central hub, which would house the office with spokes running from it. Henry said hallways could be restructured at minimal cost to be storm shelters.
The total cost for those two projects is $19.3 million. Total cost for recent and planned construction is $23.4 million with previous capital outlay notes. The financing plan assumes an interest rate of 3.6 percent. Through 2047, the school district would average a debt payment of $1.3 million, with a total payback of $39.2 million. “I don’t see those numbers changing, other than the fact, as we go through the construc-
tion process, the interest rate changed a little bit,” Henry said. The current debt payment for the school district for this year is $1.3 million. “I want to be able to present this to the combined committees this month,” said Henry. The board unanimously voted to authorize Henry to present this plan to the committees. The plan would ultimately have to be approved by the full County Commission since it controls expenditures.
Judgement House begins Sunday at First Baptist Church By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor
First Baptist Church has a story to tell. Close to 300 people of the congregation are getting their chance to share the gospel through the 13th Annual Judgement House of the church. “Shaken” will be presented starting Sunday night at 4 p.m.
Performances are also scheduled for Oct. 26 from 6-8 p.m.; Oct. 30 from 3-9 p.m.; Oct. 31 from 6-8 p.m. and Nov. 2 from 6-9 p.m. There will be no admission to attend any of the live performances. “We do not have the dramatic scene like we have had in the past,” said FBC Associate Pastor/ Youth Director John Chandler. “What we do have is a realistic
story which connects with everyone.” “Shaken” deals with the lives of four teenagers. The quartet of – Maggie, Brittany, Eric and Olivia – all come together at a condemned building which turns into a site of tragedy. What will happen when drugs, alcohol, lies, tempers and compassion

He had made his way to the police department to warm up before radioing for help a few hours later.

Brittany Burkeen has a heart for mission work. Burkeen has been to China and Japan on mission trips and plans to take another foreign trek in 2017.
Burkeen anticipates mission return to Japan By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor
Brittney Burkeen knew something was missing. What she found changed her life. The 23-year-old Burkeen had her eyes open to the world and is ready to serve the Lord through missions. “God has placed a call to missions on my heart,” said the Blue Mountain graduate. “I have stopped planning and started trusting the Lord.” The trust came during her freshman year at Blue Mountain. It was at the north Mississippi college where Burkeen accepted Jesus as her savior. “I grew up real active in church and read my Bible, but I was missing something,” she said. “I didn’t have a relationship with God.” Her salvation opened opportunities to mission work in China and Japan. Burkeen, the youngest of two children of Daniel and Marcia Burkeen, has been to China once and three times to Japan. “I loved China, but I didn’t want to go to Japan,” she said.
“My heart was softened for the people of Japan and I fell in love with them … I knew I wanted to go back the moment I returned home.” Burkeen returned home to McNairy County in August following her third visit to Japan. “The people of China are so open that it was easy to share the gospel with them,” said the McNairy Central High School graduate. “Japan is more reserved … they don’t hear the name of Jesus or God.” There is one missionary to over 10,000 people in Japan, according to Burkeen. “I was able to build friendships and talk a lot about prayer,” said Burkeen. Shinto and Buddhism are Japan’s two major religions. Shinto is as old as the Japanese culture, while Buddhism was imported from the mainland in the 6th century. “The focus of the Japanese is on the here and now,” said Burkeen. “They don’t think about death.” The Christian Ministry and Music grad is anxious to get back to the mission field. She is applying as a Journeyman for the
International Missions Board. A Journeyman is a worker who learns a skill from a tradesman, according to the IMB. No longer a trainee, the journeyman sharpens those skills that will later allow him or her to take on greater responsibility. With that in mind, the Journeyman Program provides recent college graduates a way to work with career missionaries to learn the “tools of the trade.” Hundreds of returned Journeymen have been later appointed as career missionaries since the program started. In recent years, more than 35 percent of all IMB Career missionaries have previously served through the Journeyman or ISC programs. Burkeen was given the chance to review and choose from a wide variety of job requests. “Everything is due in November,” she said. “I will be going somewhere if accepted in August of 2017.” Burkeen plans to help her dad with the “Parsonage Foundation” until she receives word

October declared as Domestic Violence Awareness Month By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor
Embracing and empowering. The Wo/Men’s Resource and Rape Assistance Program does both for adult and child survivors of domestic and sexual assault. WRAP representatives were in town recently as Selmer Mayor John Smith and McNairy County Mayor Ronnie Brooks both signed a proclamation to declare October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. “We need to get the message out that there is a place to go for help,” said WRAP Program Manager for Field Advocates Penny Hensley. “WRAP lets them know they aren’t alone … we can’t make the decision for them, but we provide them resources and options.” WRAP serves 19 counties in West Tennessee with its Selmer office located at the West Tennessee Legal Services building at 141 West Third Street.
“Clients are waiting for help, but are afraid to get it” said McNairy County Field Advocate Shayla Russell. “Some aren’t ready to take the next step and that’s when we counsel with them.” One in every four women will experience domestic violence during their lifetime, according to WRAP. Around 15.5 million children are exposed to this type of violence each year. Domestic violence also resulted in 264 reports of domestic homicide from 2013-2015 in Tennessee. “The sad thing is it is on the rise in our county,” said Brooks. “Victims more or less hide it and do not reach out for help, but there is help out there for them.” WRAP is the only agency in West Tennessee providing services to both sexual and domestic violence survivors. The program coordinates efforts with those of local law enforcement agencies, attorneys, hospitals, social services agencies, state agencies and court offices so
they can work together to provide the best services possible to its clients. The program provides services to adult and child survivors such as: • 24-hour crisis line • Safe shelter (including food, clothing, toiletries, etc. • Transportation • Individual counseling • Support groups • Hospital accompaniment • Court accompaniment • Case Management • Education/prevention programs • Emergency financial assistance • Advocacy • Referrals • Transitional Housing WRAP is also the only nonprofit which works with women, men and children, according to Hensley. “Survivors of domestic violence should have help to find compassion, comfort and the healing they need,” said Hensley.

Mayor Smith is glad there is a local option for those impacted with domestic violence.
Adamsville students collect items for home Submitted Article A pair of Adamsville High School seniors completed their mission. Macey Johnson and Dreyton Barnes took on the project of collecting items needed at the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home in Memphis. West Shiloh Baptist – the home church of Johnson and Barnes – also helped in the project. The two collected around $650 from individuals and businesses during September. Items were delivered to the home on Oct. 3. There are currently five Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home locations across Tennessee. Homes are located in Memphis, Millington, Brentwood, Chattanooga and Oakdale.
“They love on people and let them know things can be better,” said Smith. (For more information about WRAP, contact Shayla Russell at 731-343-5006. Those needing to speak with a crisis counselor can call the 24/7 hot line at 1-800-273-8712.)
Rotary club set to honor volunteers
Adamsville seniors Macey Johnson and Dreyton Barnes collected around $650 worth of items for the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home in Memphis. “The program helps to provide a safe environment for children who are unable to remain with their families,” said Johnson. “Each cottage houses up to eight children who live together with a married couple
who serve as houseparents.” “The children learn to be a contributing member of the family,” added Barnes. “ They’re taught about God’s love for them and how they can choose to have a better
life than they would otherwise have.” (For more information about the children's home, go to tennesseechildren.org.)
Submitted The Selmer Rotary Club will honor several individuals for their service to the community. The annual Citizen of the Year Banquet will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25 at the Selmer Community Center. Chris Whitten has been named the Citizen of the Year. Whitten will be honored along with Macey Johnson – Youth Volunteer of the Year from Adamsville High School; Chaseton Whitten – Youth Volunteer of the Year from McNairy Central High School; Katie Brown – Teacher of the Year; Sean Hood – Firefighter of the Year; Dameon Blue – Law Enforcement Officer of the Year and Wayne Elam – Adult Volunteer of the Year.

from the IMB. “The foundation helps missionaries with housing,” said the Tate Baptist Church member. “Dad and I want to serve others and missions … our goal is to be able to support missionaries by helping them find a place to live once they return.” The Parsonage Foundation is also funding a trip to Japan in December. Burkeen is going with a team to do Christmas missions as part of the project. (Those interested in having Burkeen come to speak about missions can contact her at 731-610-9136.)

A Selmer business will not be selling beer. An on-premises beer permit was denied for Double Diamond Sports Bar and Grill by the Selmer Beer Board. According to information presented by City Attorney Terry Abernathy, owner Amber Wiggins submitted the permit request as part of a partnership. “It appears some of her circumstances have changed,
even if she were present,” said Abernathy. “The application was based on a partnership and I understand, that perhaps the partnership is not in existence any more … I think the board should just go on record in denying the application based on failure of the applicant to follow through and get it off your books.” Preceding the beer board meeting on October 11, the city’s board of aldermen met and voted to exempt one and two family dwellings from a requirement in the building code
that they have sprinkler systems installed. In other board business, the group approved the fire department applying for a TML Property Conservation Grant. Fire Chief Anthony Carr explained this is a 50-50 grant meaning the town will have to match the amount of the grant. Carr expects the grant to be around $1,000. The money will be used to replace more security lights with more energy efficient lights. This process began last year. Abernathy also reported
on what the board can do at a meeting and what they have done. The board does not have to publish an agenda, but if they do, they should stick to it, and this is what the board has done, Abernathy said. If an agenda is published, anything can be discussed, but nothing should be acted upon that is not on the agenda, unless it is some kind of emergency. “I would suggest that you continue that practice,” Abernathy said.
Two teams – Judgement and House – have been formed to open more roles for people to be involved. “The two-team approach will have a positive effect on our student ministries and our adult roles,” said Chandler. “In past years, I feel like people have hesitated to be a part of Judgement House because they don’t feel needed … we want to give people every opportunity to be plugged in.” Walk-ins are welcome, but reservations are recommended. “Our goal is to challenge people to get out of their comfort zone and allow God to work through them,” said Chandler. First Baptist Church is located at 310 West Court Avenue. (Reservations can be made by calling 731-645-5326.)

find themselves face-to-face in the unstable building? “There are so many elements involved with this theme,” said Chandler. “These are things people deal with everyday.” A committee has worked on Judgement House for two months. “We looked at three scripts and this is the one which connected with everyone,” said Chandler. Psalm 62:6 is the theme verse for this year’s Judgement House. “Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.” FBC has made some minor changes to the drama this year.

Every quilt tells a story By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
BETHEL SPRINGS – The McNairy County Quilt Show has been telling stories with quilts for 36 years. The tradition continued Saturday as around 200 quilts were showcased. “There’s a story behind every quilt,” said McNairy Quilt Show President Doris Reece. One of these stories is Rita Casey. Casey has cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy treatments. Casey’s quilting guild created a quilt in her honor and it was displayed in the cancer room at the quilt show. “Rita needs our prayers,” Reece said. “I am very glad I have lots of friends to help me through this,” Casey said.

Remembrance Walk organizer Mandy Horton arranges the 70 luminaries which were lit to remember infants who have died prematurely.
Parents draw support from walk in park By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor
SMS Family Fun Night
It was more than just a walk in the park. Saturday was an opportunity to remember infants who died prematurely. The 3rd Annual Remembrance Walk was an opportunity for the community to come together and support the parents of children who have lost children. “We had such a big response,” said organizer Mandy Horton of the event held at Selmer City Park. “People were calling from all over wanting to be involved … it was an awesome day.” Mandy and D’Ray Horton formed “Parents of Angels” four years ago after their daughter, Mattie Bell Horton was stillborn at 22½ weeks. “The death of a child is hard on families,” said volunteer Telecia Macdonald. “It’s good they have something like this weekend to help them cope.” Seventy luminaries were lit in remembrance of infants who were stillborn. McNairy County Mayor Ronnie Brooks and Selmer Mayor John Smith both proclaimed October as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month during the event. The 70 luminaries eclipsed last year’s total of 53. The highlight of the evening was the release of 10 sky lanterns, according to Horton. “Everyone loved the lanterns and asked us to do them again next year,” Horton.
D’Ray Horton gets a sky lantern ready to be released during the 3rd Annual Remembrance Walk.

Guys receives grant for road improvement By Janet Rail Publisher
GUYS – The Town of Guys was awarded a $142,000 CDBG grant funded under community livability to pave a portion of Old Highway 45. “Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon will be testing a portion of the highway to determine why it is failing prior to any paving,” said Shannon Cotter, SIC project management. The board discussed Monday the completion of chip and seal on a portion of S. Gin Road and Farmville Road. Four city bridges located on Capooth Road, GuysChewalla Road and S. Gin Road were recently inspected
by the Tennessee Dept. of Transportation and rated at fair condition, according to a letter from Stan Reynolds, TDOT bridge inspection and repair supervisor. “I received a call from a citizen complaining about a portion of road and a culvert on Ridge Road and a tree on private property they are concerned with,” said Guys Mayor Keith Rinehart. “We will be preparing the road and I will look into the rest of the complaint.” Rinehart said all of the bridges are less than 20 years old. “I hope they are in good condition,” said Rinehart. The ratings are critical, poor, fair and good condition according to the letter. The city received a bid spec sheet for a new 4 x 4 util-
ity tractor, 75-100 horse power with optional loader and mower, according to Cotter. “We are also contacting Ronnie Neal from the Tennessee Municipal League to discuss the purchase of a used tractor from another municipality,” said Rinehart. Fire Chief Perry Stricklin reported four grass fire calls came in last month. “The county requires a burn permit from Oct 15 – May 15 and people need to get one,” said Perry. Four staff members will receive training in November at the TN River Weekend Fire Academy in Hardin County. The city has not completed, but still plans to have pine trees cut around the walking trail as requested by local residents.
Donoho takes on cancer fight By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor
Flynn Donoho is taking up the fight on his bike. The 57-year-old is bicycling across the country to raise money for the American Cancer Society. “I always wanted to see the United States and why not do it for a cause?” said Donoho while making a stop in Selmer. The cyclist started his “Cycling for Cancer” on Jan. 6 of 2011 in his mother’s hometown of Huntington Beach, Calif. Since that time, he has covered 48 states and is only a few away from doing it twice. His latest trek began a week before Christmas in 2015. “I’ve had family and friends die from cancer,” he said. “My grandmother died before I was born … my goal is to raise enough money to find a cure for cancer.” Donoho is also accompanied by a “faithful companion” as he makes his way across the country. Diva, a red heelerchow mix, rides in a bike trailer pulled by Donoho. The small trailer has a pink bra attached on the back with the phrase “save
us” written on it. “I thought the bra would be a good idea since this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” said Donoho. The cyclist is dedicating his latest trip to his sister-in-law. Melinda Donoho is a six-year breast cancer survivor. Life hasn’t always been kind to Donoho. “I have been homeless for years,” said Donoho. “Biking across the nation is easier and I get to share the Lord.” Most nights he sleeps in a tent. “I had someone offer to put me up in a hotel the other night,” he said of his stop in Henderson. The offer fell through when the hotel didn’t allow pets. That was fine with Donoho. “I am doing this for people with cancer,” he said. “I don’t get a dime from what people donate.” Those who would like to make a donation under Donoho’s name, can go online to teamacs.acsevents.org and click on the Donate button in the upper left corner. A screen will appear that asks for first and last name of participant. Enter “Flynn Donoho” and click “Donate Now.”

Task force releases economic development By Jeff York Contributor
The Governor’s Rural Task Force has released its strategic plan to advance rural communities and economic development throughout Tennessee. More than 120 people representing economic development, tourism, local government, workforce development, small business, health, agriculture, infrastructure, banking and education served on one of six committees to develop the plan during the past year. The Task Force built upon ideas presented during input sessions, researched new solutions and refined the recommendations. The 18 agencies
represented on the Task Force implemented a process designed to actively involve local stakeholders in the development of the strategic plan. TNECD Commissioner Randy Boyd, Department of Agriculture Commissioner Jai Templeton and Department of Tourist Development Commissioner Kevin Triplett serve as co-chairs for the Task Force. “Despite the unprecedented growth occurring in our state, many of Tennessee’s rural areas are not experiencing the same prosperity as urban areas,” Boyd said. “This strategic plan provides a potential menu of options to help transform and grow our rural communities.”
“A strong group of citizens is directing this effort with a vested interest in Tennessee’s rural areas,” Templeton said. “Much more work must be done, but this report lays a solid foundation for the future. I am grateful for the renewed interest in growing Tennessee’s rural communities and the recognition of the importance of agriculture. When our small towns and countryside thrive, we all benefit.” “Tennessee is experiencing record-breaking tourism numbers in visitation. But with 70 percent of that economic impact being derived from five counties, it is imperative we find ways to elevate awareness and visitation to other areas,” Triplett said.
“Some of the most rural parts of the state are the richest in scenic beauty, history, authentic music and outdoor adventure. Tourism development in those areas is economic development.” The Task Force’s recommendations focus on capacity building and placemaking. Capacity-building recommendations included health initiatives such as an incentives program for health care professionals in rural Tennessee and an oral health pilot; education programs to encourage workbased learning and a new rural teacher initiative; plans to reduce recidivism through employment programs and offer resources for rural entrepreneurs and small
businesses. Recommendations for placemaking, or the planning and design of community resources to promote overall well-being, call for tourism investment and site development resources, among other proposals to encourage retail and business growth in rural communities. The Task Force is already working to implement some of its recommendations, including asset-based planning, one-stopshop community resource guides and the Retail Academy. The Task Force will also support and empower local communities to build upon these programs to develop their own local programs.

INDEPENDENT APPEAL v PAGE 7A
Kirkpatrick succeeded in cleaning up state line By Jeff Whitten Head News Writer
Buford Pusser was not the first McNairy County sheriff to try and succeed in closing the clubs along the state line. Hugh Kirkpatrick served as sheriff from 1940 until 1944 and then again from 1948 until 1954. State line club owners were so threatened by him, they tried to bribe him, according to Ghost Tales of the State Line Mob by Robert Broughton. In June 1948, he and a deputy met club owners Nelson Timlake, Luke “Kay” Timlake, Clyde Timlake, Jack Hathcock and Louise Hathcock.
Clyde placed two envelopes stuffed with $100 bills on the table in front of the two lawmen. One of the club owners said this was two years salary for the officers. Kirpatrick pulled a bill out of one envelope and tore it in half. He did the same with a second bill. He started to grab a third bill when Kay grabbed the envelope. “I knew that wasn’t Kirkpatrick my money because the only way to double my salary is to tear those dollar bills in half,” Broughton quotes
Kirkpatrick as saying. “Good day, gentlemen and Louise. I’ll be back.” “If he isn’t going to take the money, let’s just tell everyone he did,” said Clyde. Soon rumors spread over McNairy and Alcorn County that Kirkpatrick was on the take. In August 1948 after just being reelected, Kirkpatrick was summoned to appear before Circuit Court Judge Mark Walker. He was told he was being relieved of his duties due to pending investigation of charges of bribery and accepting support for his reelection from state line club owners. The following month he was told the state attorney general had cleared him of all charges and he was sworn back into office.
The sheriff and deputies executed search warrants and court orders to padlock the clubs in December of the same year. When Kirkpatrick got home from the raid, he found his dog hanging dead in a tree. A deputy was shot at, there were threatening phone calls, broken windows and sugar in gas tanks. Kirkpatrick called the Highway Patrol to help investigate and patrol the lawmen’s homes to keep them safe. Kirkpatrick, who died in 1985, also served as road commissioner, a Tennessee Highway Patrol officer and a Selmer policeman. He also drove a school bus from Finger to school at Bethel Springs.
Division helps fight financial abuse Submitted NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance’s Securities Division (TDCI) joined other state regulators and members of the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) today in offering training to broker-dealers and investment advisers to help identify and report suspected elder financial abuse. The “Senior$afe” training program, which was created by the NSAA, is a comprehensive session that will help Tennessee securities professionals better recognize and report financial abuse in order to help protect elderly investors. The training is part of a national Senior$afe training initiative across the U.S. by regulators.
“We want them to learn ways they can help stop financial exploitation before someone’s grandfather or grandmother is swindled out of the monies he or she worked a lifetime to save.” Frank Borger-Gilligan TDCI Assistant Commissioner
“Tennessee’s licensed broker-dealers and investment advisers play key roles in helping stop the potential financial exploitation and financial abuse of vulnerable investors,” said TDCI Assistant Commissioner Frank Borger-Gilligan. “We want them to learn ways they can help stop financial ex-
ploitation before someone’s grandfather or grandmother is swindled out of the monies he or she worked a lifetime to save.” To help investors, TDCI offers the following tips that senior investors should always consider asking before making an investment:
• When a stranger asks for money, proceed with caution. Swindlers will exploit your good manners • Before you invest, make sure your investment adviser is licensed. Extensive background information is available by contacting TDCI’s Securities Division • Beware of salespeople who prey upon your fears. Fear can blind your good judgement. Only invest when you have all the facts and feel comfortable • Don’t let embarrassment prevent you from reporting fraud or abuse If you suspect that you might be a victim of securities or insurance fraud, please contact the Tennessee Securities Division – Financial Services Investigations Unit at (615) 741-5900.

On my mind “Fall break”
Volume 115, Number 23, Wednesday, October 19, 2016
McNAIRY VOICES Do you approve or disapprove of the job President Barack Obama is doing? Why or why not?
By Lesa Marie Storms Contributor
Fall break has come and gone. Whew, where does the time go? Seems like the children just started the school year, now we have had pictures taken and received our first report cards. STORMS Another fall break is in the memory banks. How did you spend fall break? At our house the goal was to spend as much time outside as possible. A little dirt never hurt and we went for all of it we could get. We started playing a game of follow the leader on our four-wheelers and side-by-side for a few miles headed to our favorite riding trails and fishing spot. We loaded up for the day with lunch and snacks and had a blast. We reeled in a few little ones but nothing big enough for dinner. The best part was everyone caught something, even though we did drown several worms in the process. The night ended with hot dogs and s’mores over the campfire. I have to admit, very few things are better than a good old burnt marshmallow fresh out of the fire. I also used fall break as a chance to take both of my older girls out hunting. My oldest is nine and had never been hunting. I managed to scrounge up some camo to fit her, some of our old Army uniforms and she was giddy to get what she called “geared up.” We spent a few hours in the woods, leaning against a tree, eating sunflower seeds and whispering stories. There was some movement in the woods but we didn’t see anything. It didn’t mean it wasn’t fun and the memories made were priceless. The next night I got my 8-year-old “geared up” and we went out together. She had gone out once last year with her dad during rifle season, but it manly consisted of putting on a bunch of warm clothes and riding around on the side-by-side with a rifle in the back. This was her first experience with being quiet and still. We got out to our spot about 5 p.m. and proceeded to whisper stories and dig into the seeds. About 30 minutes later, a doe walked down the ravine in front of us. She was amazed to see it about 40 yards away in the brush. But it got better than that, about a half hour after we had three more come down the ravine near us and something spooked them right toward us. When I motioned her to be still, she instantly froze, I was able to draw down and take a shot, which I hate to admit I missed and logged my broad head in a tree. I have to say I’m grateful for lighted nocks to be able to find the arrow. After I trekked over and retrieved it, it was just getting too dark to really see anything to hunt. So we sat and talked. She told me she’d never seen a deer so close and she was completely amazed by it. Warmed my heart. Now both girls are excited to go out again and sit by the tree together. They have a better appreciation of hunting and quality time. We could have stayed home and played games or watched movies. We could have taken a road trip or gone bowling. But we decided to spend our time together enjoying what God has blessed us with. And the memories made will last forever. What’s on your mind?
My summers with glycerin By Rachel Rail Office Manager
I spent a large part of my summers with pruned fingers. I’m sure a lot of kids do. Summer is a time for playing outside in the water. Sometimes, the lake was the cause of my condition. My favorite culprit, though, was glycerin. Few eight-year-olds, I’d guess, have much experience with glycerin. I, however, spent every Wednesday

evening in the summer months practically bathing in the stuff. Wednesdays were special because I was a paid employee of the Independent Appeal. I spent a few precious hours stuffing newspapers with the grownups. For them, a touch of glycerin would help their fingers grip the pages. Beginning with the sale inserts,to the various sections, and finally fitting neatly into main section with the pretty front page. I, though, wanted to be sure I was carrying my weight so my hands were usually completely coated and I stood on my tip toes pulling the pages along. I’m relatively confident that more than a few McNairy Countians received papers with small hand prints scattered throughout. If anyone complained, I never knew. My grandfather, Bill Rail, my “DoDaddy,” always paid me for my time. My favorite day of the week usually ended with a dirty but happy little girl who was $20 richer and fell asleep in the car on the way home. Over the years, I fell victim to all the classic reasons grandchildren stop visiting, and I left Selmer, and the glycerin behind. A little over a week ago, I came back. Though I never
spent more than a few weeks here in the summer, crossing the county line felt like I was coming home. This town and this newspaper is part of the history of my family. It’s in my DNA. We don’t stuff papers at the Independent Appeal anymore, but the feelings I had as a child remain. Moving to McNairy County is an opportunity to continue something my family started many years ago.

Shoebox Ministry: We need 30 bath soap and 30 wash cloths. Pat Davison will have all of the toothbrush and toothpaste by then. Lila Pollack will be buying a box of 100 bath soap and we will be bringing in the rest. Bring them to the October meeting so that we can put everything into a bag that Lila Pollack made for each box. The Special Needs trophies have been purchased by someone else. So we have decided to furnish snacks for after the game.

Finger Barbecue and Picnic By Janet Rail Publisher
FINGER – The Finger Fire Department celebrated 121 years of the town with the annual parade and picnic. The local tradition dates back to 1895 with many residents taking the opportunity to reunite with old friends, family and share a little history with youngsters. Organizers hosted a 5K run along with a parade, antique tractor show, bluegrass music and whole hog barbecue with homemade ice cream and desserts. Children enjoyed participating in a vehicle extraction demonstration by the fire department. The all-volunteer fire department has 29 members with 13 first responders and one paramedic operating from two stations. Serving since 1984, the department covers over 70 square miles in McNairy and Chester counties with a population of 2,700. The department boasts an ISO rating of 5 in the city limits. The department pays its own fuel costs and is primarily self-funded with some assistance from the city and county government. Over the past two years, the department built a new firehouse and added new firetrucks to their fleet with CDBG disaster grants. The event was held Oct. 15 and raised over $3,000 for general operating expenses, according to fireman/department treasurer Joseph Lambert. Photos by Janet Rail

Cooper Chambers, 4 years old, recently moved to Finger with his family from Wisconsin.
Mancel Kirk attends his 67th Finger Picnic and Barbecue last Saturday. He attended his first in 1936, arriving in a wagon drawn by mules. The following year he attended in the pickup truck his father purchased. Kirk has been at every Finger Picnic since 1936, except for the three years he was in the Army during World War II. Kirk opened the Finger Service Station in 1964, only closing it four years ago. The service station was called the Cornfield Country Club. “You heard more news at that station than at all the newspapers,” said local Finger historian Ronnie Dale Wright. This was the 121st Finger picnic.

ADAMSVILLE – The name of the game is speed. Adamsville had plenty of it on Homecoming Night. The Cardinals (7-0, 3-0) used a quick-scoring offense to cruise to a 46-6 victory over the Tigers at Lendon Martin Memorial Stadium. Adamsville unleashed anoth-
er first-quarter scoring party for a 21-0 lead. Running back Tyree Bumphus kicked in two touchdowns and quarterback Dylan Lott dashed in for another within the first 12 minutes of the game. An additional four touchdowns padded the lead and the defense held the usually dangerous Halls to a lone score. “I challenged them and they came out and put a whole lot of
points on the board,” AHS Head Coach Brandon Gray said after the game. “The weather wasn’t ideal and we had a few miscues, but we played well.” Gray said he motivated his team by telling them they are the number one team the region and state and they needed to play like it. Adamsville scored the first time it had the football. Bumphus broke off a 45-yard touch-
down run to put Adamsville up 7-0. The Cardinals defense prevented the Tigers from making any headway, forcing Halls to go three-and-out on its first drive. Lott made it 14-0 and Bumphus chipped in another score with a nine-yard scamper to give Adamsville a three-touchdown lead after a single quarter.

Lady Cardinals end season in postseason at Jackson Christian

Dyersburg drops McNairy to .500 mark By Steve Beavers
By Ethan Huggins Sports Writer
JACKSON – It was win or go home for Adamsville. The latter was the case as the Lady Cardinal soccer team (5-4) fell to Jackson Christian School 5-0 in the 2nd Round of the District A-AA Tournament. AHS Head Coach Steven Price was proud of his team for their improvement and their effort this season. “We just ended a great season on a loss,” Price said. “JCS are the number one seed and we made them earn it.” Price looked back at the team’s season and pointed out growth in several spots despite the problems they’ve faced. “Our group worked hard and supported one another,” the
Dyersburg clinched a postseason berth behind the running of Tavarius Currie. Currie ran for 183 yards and four touchdowns as the Trojans defeated McNairy Central 42-0 at Don Whitaker Stadium. DHS (7-2, 4-1) locked up one of the four playoff bids in Region 7-3A as it scored on its first four possessions. McNairy (4-4, 1-3) moved the football in the first half before a pair possessions ended with turnovers in Dyersburg territory. DHS linebacker Hayden Smith ended a MC threat to open the contest. Smith intercepted a Dylan Crabb pass and returned it 56 yards to the McNairy 12. Cam’Ron Hopkins scored three plays later to put the Trojans on the board with 6:50 left in the first quarter.

McNairy was saddled with bad field position on consecutive drives. The Bobcats mishandled a pair of kicks and were forced to start at its own six and three in the first quarter. Dyersburg took advantage of the Bobcats misfortune and started drives at the MC 16 and 46. Currie scored three straight times as the visitors took a 28-0 advantage. McNairy put together a 10play drive late in the first half behind the passing of Crabb. The senior QB found receiver Grant McMahan for a pair of 13-yard receptions and hit Vinnie White with a 35-yard strike on thirdand-13 to move the ball to the DHS 14. MC had first-and-10 at the 14 only to see Currie haul in a deflected Crabb pass for an inter-

coach said. Price also looked ahead and realized the Lady Cardinals would soon be without Aysia Campbell and Danea Grisham, two of the team’s “central defenders,” and their second team all-district selection Demi Milford, who are all set to graduate in May. “These three young women represented our team the right way,” Price said. “They will be successful in whatever they choose to do.” Price said he and assistant coach Dick White consider this year a success because their focal players for next season have shown great improvement. After advancing through the district tournament first round over Haywood, the Lady Cardinals were eager to take the upset over the number one seeded JCS. The Lady Eagles shocked Adamsville by scoring early. Toward the midpoint of the game, JCS charged the net and scored again, taking a 2-0 lead at halftime. In the second half, the Lady Cards tried to get on the board with one of their own, but were not able to find wiggle room in the Lady Eagles defense. JCS got another three goals on the board before the clock hit zero, ending the AHS season at 5-5 in overall play.
Michie rallies behind race for firefighters
Thirty-nine local runners participated in the Michie Volunteer Fire Department’s annual 5K last Saturday in Michie. Jan Woods led the ladies in finishing the race, while Marcella Harville took second and Cindy Hughes finished third. For the men, Jakob Carter finished first overall, followed by Michael Shoup and Kyle McDaniel in second and third places respectively. “It went well,” City of Michie Alderman Jay Poindexter said, “We enjoyed a great turnout and had a great time raising $2,100 for our fire department to buy new gear and equipment.” Poindexter says that he is already planning next year’s event, and hopes to have a ‘turnout gear’ division of firefighters in their gear racing. The race’s overall winner, Jakob Carter, is pictured above right.

ception. Crabb finished 9-of-15 for 108 yards. Jeremiah Sanders led the Bobcats with 29 yards on eight attempts. White and McMahan each hauled in three receptions. The defense was led by the 9 total tackles of linebackers Payton Stanfield and Dru Yopp. Ronnie Kinkennon contributed six tackles.
The second period was much of the same for both teams. Bryce Hawkins ran behind some solid blocks to score from 48 yards out. Chase Burdette scored from five yards out on the next possession to contribute another to the cause. Enjoying a 34-0 lead after the half, Adamsville did not relinquish the momentum. Ryan Nixon took it to the house from four yards out and Colin Misenhimer reached paydirt from 13 yards to boost Adamsville to 46-6 cushion. AHS Defensive Coordinator Renard Woodmore liked his defense’s effort in limiting Halls to a lone touchdown. “We’ve got a whole a lot of leaders on our first team defense,” said Woodmore. “We were also able to get some young guys playing time and our offense really put us in good position.” Adamsville closes its home regular season slate versus Middleton on Friday. It will be Senior Night at Lendon Martin Memorial Stadium. The AHS seniors have compiled a career mark of 40-8 heading into Friday’s contest. “These guys are special,” said Gray. “They played in the state championship game as freshmen and they’ve seen a lot of good football … I hate to see them go.”

Fourth graders make their mark on ‘Dot Day’ By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor
Making their mark. Selmer Elementary School fourth grade students recently spent a day doing just that along with 6,922,550 others in 139 countries. Students around the world took part in International Dot Day in honor of the book “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds.
“The entire program was student-led,” said SES Bridget Harris. “They organized everything.” Visitors were greeted by dots on their way to the gymnasium. Fourth graders put together a video and sang “The Dot Song” during a brief ceremony. “The students did all kinds of activities,” said Harris. “It was about making their mark and how they can inspire others.” One activity the over 90 fourth grade students took
part in was building a structure made of DOTS candy and toothpicks to see if it could support a large textbook. “I liked the structure activity because it made you think,” said Emma Harris. “The Dot” shares the story of a girl who begins a journey of self-discovery after a caring teacher challenges her to “make her mark.” “The kids were excited,” said Harris. “I really like that the program showed them they can accomplish anything they set their minds to.”
The Adamsville High School Cardinal Marching Band continued their winning ways recently at the 31st Annual Gibson County Marching Invitational.

Overall, competing against every other competing band, the Cardinals took third place Drum Major, third place Color Guard and third place Band Overall.

Meet Tiffany Johnson
The Guidance Office has a new, yet familiar face in Tiffany Johnson. Mrs. Johnson is a 1991 graduate of MCHS, and previously taught science at MCHS. She has been in education for 22 years, serving at public schools in Henderson County and JacksonMadison County. besides McNairy Central. Johnson earned an undergraduate degree at UTMartin, majoring in Secondary Education and Biology. She earned an M.Ed in Educational Leadership from Trevecca Nazarene University, and finally an M.Ed +45 in Counseling from Freed-Hardeman. Johnson returned to MCHS this year as a fulltime Guidance Counselor. Johnson says that teaching allows her to make the world around her a better place. She regularly sees former students who say that the time spent in her class made a difference in their lives and changed them in some
way. “I am completely committed to my students’ success,” said Johnson. As a Guidance Counselor, Johnson feels that she is able to observe and interact with students, parents, teachers, administrators and community agencies in a unique way. “My job entails helping students meet academic, social and career goals. It is fascinating for me to watch how a group of nervous 9th graders enter high school and walk out four years later as confident young adults heading to a postsecondary school, military career, or the workplace with the skills they need to succeed,” said Johnson Advancing her reading skills to full-on chapter book independence was a turning point in Mrs Johnson’s educational life. She said she will be forever grateful to her first grade teacher for helping her, because reading has allowed her to travel to many places and have many experiences.
Johnson enjoys a love for reading, and is seldom seen without a book in her hand. Mrs. Johnson hopes that her students all realize she loves what she does, and that she is enthusiastic about their success. “I am their biggest cheerleader!” said Johnson. She has been married to Keith Johnson for 18 years, and has three children: Tyler, 16, Will, 12 and Noelle, 8.
