County Commission approves building repairs By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor

Issues with four countyowned buildings are set to be repaired. The McNairy County Commission approved the motion to repair the roofs of the McNairy County Historical Museum, McNairy County Courthouse and McNairy County Justice Complex. Commissioners also voted to make repairs at the Jack McConnico Memorial Library.

“We have enough debt rolling off to take care of it if we choose to do so,” said budget committee chairman Jim Rickman prior to the passing of the motion. Repairs are estimated to cost $315,460. Individual repair costs at the buildings include: museum – $20,000; justice complex – $162,000; courthouse – $25,000 and library – $108,460. Commissioners voted to borrow up to $340,000 to fix the buildings.

The county plans to garner a capital outlay note around 3.75 percent to cover costs. “We will have to bid it out,” said McNairy County Mayor Ronnie Brooks. “We will give all the local banks an opportunity.” Glen Hickman Construction Company was the low bid for work at the library. Matlock Roofing LLC turned in the low bid on the roof projects. The commission will have to send a request to the comptroller’s office to take on new debt,

according to Brooks. “We will start work as soon as we can,” said Brooks. McNairy County Economic Development & Chamber of Commerce CEO Eddie Crittendon updated commissioners on projects. “I am still working on a couple projects with the old Masco building,” said Crittendon. “We finished the year pretty strong and are going to push forward with making our county the place other counties want to be like.”

The commission voted to accept a tourism grant to preserve the old county jail. The county’s portion of a four-agency match will be $625. The grant will refurbish the jail. The grant will also fund a new heating and air unit and repair windows at the jail. “It’s going to be unlike anything you have ever seen,” said tourism director Jessica Huff. “This will be a really good

The annual Independent Appeal Love of Literacy “Dessert Tasting Fundraiser” was dedicated in memory of Micki Greer on Thursday. “She had a passion for people and went out of her way to make

them feel comfortable,” said council vice president Andrea Littlejohn. “Micki encouraged students and made sure they knew they were important.” Littlejohn said the council wanted to do something in honor of Greer who died in January. “It is bittersweet tonight,” said Littlejohn. “Micki would have been a big part of what is going on tonight and we wanted to do something in honor of her.” The literacy council also an-

Yoga instructor helps people refuel

By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor

One McNairy County woman likes to share her message through yoga. Just ask “Simchah.” Breath of Life Yoga & Therapy owner Sandra “Simchah” Huizar remains committed to providing people a safe place to process their imperfections and problems. “I did yoga as a hobby for a long time,” said the certified instructor. “Then I fell in love with it.” The 52-year-old Virginia native was working as an aromatherapist and offering stress relief exercise at the former Selmer business Another Realm in 2007. It was then when her passion for yoga was born, according to Simchah. “People need a place to refuel,” she said. “You can’t keep pouring out and pouring out without refilling.” Yoga was the way Huizar could better impact the lives of people. “I want my clients to lay all the stuff they are thinking about at Jesus’ feet because to me it’s all about Christ,” said the yoga instructor. “I want their focus to be on the brain, breath and body for the hour of class.” Individuals need time to for-

get about their problems, according to Simchah. “The body doesn’t lie,” she said. “There are issues and I have seen yoga relieve people of them.” Huizar offers both private and public classes. Classes are held each Tuesday and Thursday at the Selmer Community Center. “She has people on her heart,” said Darryl Melton, one of close to 50 clients of Simchah. “It’s not a job for her ... it’s a mission.” “She is a beautiful soul who has inspired me to make an investment in myself through purposeful planning and peace,” added student Katie Weatherford. “Simchah has helped me set specific goals and has prepared me with the tools to tackle those goals.” Most of the clients are overcomers, according to Simchah. “They have survived things such as stroke, cancer and wrecks,” she said. “I am passionate to help those type of people.” A stroke in 2015 ignited a deeper passion for the instructor. “It made me pay more attention,” said Simchah. “Life is short and you have to make it count ... I didn’t want to waste my life.” A genetic disorder called Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) caused the stroke. HHT is a condition of the blood vessels which affects approxi-

mately one in 5,000 people. The condition was also responsible for the early deaths of Simchah’s mother and grandmother. Simchah – which means joy in Hebrew – also had to deal with her son Austin being born with three heart defects. “I know what it feels like to have it all on me,” she said. “I had some awesome mentors in David and Cynthia Taylor at the Rose Creek Village ... now I just want to encourage people.” The mother of five – Julia Hobbs, Austin Park, Esther Pavao, Nichole Park and Eli Park – will celebrate her sixth anniversary with husband, Francisco Huizar later this month. “He is the best thing to happen to me,” said Simchah of her husband. Simchah, a board member of the McNairy County Chamber of Commerce and Stonehouse Ministries International, said it took time for people to warm up to the idea of yoga in McNairy County. “In the beginning I called it stress relief exercise,” she said with a smile. Individuals shouldn’t get frustrated when starting the method, according to Simchah. “It takes about 10 classes to feel comfortable,” she said. “I want to make them work, but not

NASA was part of Wright’s plan By Joel Counce Contributor

Kim Avery Wright always enjoyed math and science. The Guys native and electrical engineer has worked for NASA since 1991. She started her NASA career after graduating from Howard University with a Masters of Science degree in electrical engineering. “It was my plan,” Wright said. “They were taking engineers and I wanted to do research over a summer ... they had no positions available, but said they wanted to hire me full-time.” The job has given the 1986 McNairy Central High School graduate the opportunity to work with astronauts and scientists from all over the world. “It was very common to walk down the hall and see an astro-

The first launches will be unmanned trips to Mars, traveling on the shuttle Orion. “Orion can stay in space longer without having to travel to Earth,” Wright said. “It is a completely different craft than has ever traveled in space.” Wright currently manages the IT budget for the space program, operating about $40 million. “That includes everything,” she said. “It includes computers, phones, data, the bandwidth to travel to space and back down to Earth. That’s all part of our budget.” Wright remembers her years at McNairy Central. “When I was in school, the planetarium was up and running,” Wright said. “We would take trips

Local EMA will hold county-wide drill By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor

The McNairy County Emergency Management Agency wants the community fully prepared. The local EMA is having a county-wide tornado drill on Feb. 27 as part of Severe Weather Awareness Week. Severe Weather Awareness Week is slated for Feb. 26 through March 4. The McNairy County School District has agreed to participate in the drill with local govern-

ment agencies. Local businesses are also being urged by McNairy County Mayor Ronnie Brooks to take part in the 9 a.m to 9:10 a.m. drill. “We are asking all businesses in the county to review their severe weather plans and take 10 minutes out of their day to conduct a drill for the safety of their employees and customers,” said McNairy County EMA Director Allen Strickland. “Tornado drills are an excellent opportunity to test plans and make sure stu-

Senior Small Business Specialist Joel Newman goes over some ideas with Selmer business owner Jennie Graber.

Small business owners collect help from seminar By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor

A small business specialist is on a mission. Around 30 business owners are onboard with the journey after hearing advice from Senior Small Business Specialist Joel Newman. “If I don’t have the answer, I know where to go get it,” said Newman, a specialist with the Tennessee Small Business Development Center. “I only care if your business is successful.” Newman was the keynote speaker of the Independent Appeal Small Business Seminar at the Selmer Community Center on Feb. 8. “My whole point of being here is to keep you informed and to help,” said Newman. He spends the second Wednesday of each month at The Latta in Selmer. The former apparel businessman has been coming to McNairy County for the past seven years to help startup businesses.

“It doesn’t matter how long you have been in business, Mr. Newman can help,” said Independent Appeal Publisher Janet Rail. “He provides a wide array of services.” Newman told those in attendance he could help them come up with a business plan while also working with existing businesses to manage everyday cash flow and marketing problems. “A business plan is the blood flow of your business,” he said. “Small businesses can be successful, but if you can’t commit to it 24/7, then don’t do it.” Judi Mashburn, owner of MAS Components & Coatings LLC, sought Newman’s advice in 2008. “The number one thing is to have a business plan,” said Mashburn. “You have to know what you want to do and expect to do.” Mashburn said Newman’s help was key for her business. “It would have taken a lot longer and we would have made a number of mistakes without him,” she said.

“P.W.” Plunk entered his 50th year of working in utilities this year.

Plunk likes helping others By Joel Counce Contributor

Paul Wallace “P.W.” Plunk retired once. He was back at work 12 years later. “This next time I’m gonna make it stick,” he said. “It’s not gonna be as long as it has been. I’ve already done it once.” The Adamsville public works director accepted the position for six months as an interim director. Twelve years later, he is still on the job. Plunk entered his 50th year of working in utilities this year. He grew up just outside of McNairy County and attended Central High School where he played baseball. “I liked playing catcher,” Plunk said. “You were in on every pitch. You could see the whole field and not have to stand and wait on anything.” He graduated in 1953. At 20-years-old, Plunk hung up his cleats and started coaching youth baseball. His first job was at Parrish Manu-

over there and I loved to look at the planets.” She said students took the planetarium for granted during those years. “We didn’t realize how unique it was,” said Wright. “It was pretty impressive.” Wright was born the seventh and youngest child to Albert and Ora Avery. Her dad, Albert, was with the first class of African-Americans to graduate high school in McNairy County after he and his sister had to attend high school in Jackson and lived in a boarding house. Education was important to the Averys. “There was never a time in our house where they told us ‘you will go to college,’” she said. “It was just an expectation.” While her siblings and cousins played basketball, Wright was a cheerleader four years at McNairy Central. Wright’s brother, Larry graduated from Tennessee State in Nashville, three sisters graduated from the University of Tennessee at Martin and three others, including Wright, graduated from Rust College in Holly Springs, Miss. Four of her sisters taught in the McNairy County School District. Beverly Avery Ratliff was a teacher at McNairy Central. Sheila Avery Durr taught at Selmer Middle School. Donna Avery Wright was an instructor at Ramer Elementary School. Two of Wright’s sisters are still teaching. Charlotte Avery Crayton is at Selmer Middle School and Pamela Avery Young teaches in the Shelby County School System. While in college Wright interned at Argonna National Laboratory in Chicago in 1989. In addition to being the only woman and the only African-American, she was surrounded by students from Harvard, Georgia Tech, MIT, Georgetown, Cornell, Georgia Tech and Nebraska. She worked on research using liquid metal to cool nuclear reactors. Wright said she learned some very important lessons in the environment.

facturing before he left for a year to go to Marion, Ind., to work construction. “I didn’t like it up there,” Plunk said. “I was in a hurry to get back to Tennessee.” Plunk married his wife, Betty in March, 1955. They had three children; Debbie, Randy and Rusty. When he came back home, he went to work for Brown Shoe Company before going to work for the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) in 1956. He worked as a surveyor in the division of surveys and plans. Plunk worked on the survey for the new river crossing at Benton and Umphries near Savannah. In 1958, he was drafted into the Army. Plunk served the two mandatory years in West Germany as a corpsman from 1958 to 1960. He worked with the 97th and took care of military personnel and their dependents as a corpsman. The Cold War was on and Germany was divided into the American occupied capitalist-run West and the

“Don’t let someone else put limitations on you,” she said. “Work hard and you can get what you work for.” She said there will be people who will try to make you feel like you have to prove yourself. “Your achievements are about making yourself proud and not about trying to prove anything or do anything for someone else,” added Wright. Since joining NASA, she has worked in data management for the space shuttle launches, International Space Station and free flyer vehicles. Wright served as lead network customer support manager for scientists and engineers at NASA centers in Florida, New Mexico, Louisiana, Texas, Alabama and California. She also worked with the STS-47 Spacelab-J mission in which Mae Jemison – the first African American woman to travel in space – served as the Mission Specialist. This was a cooperative mission between the United States and Japan, as well as the 50th shuttle mission. Wright also worked as the web services manager, responsible for the development and highlevel requirement management of NASA websites, web applications and web services for the agency. She serves as the Deputy Budget Manager and Information Technology (IT) Specialist in the Office of the Chief Information Officer. Her job is to manage a $39.6 million annual budget for Institutional IT procurements. Wright and her husband Keith have been married 21 years and have two sons, Braxton, 19 and Kendall, 15. Braxton plays soccer at Auburn University. Kendall, a sophomore in high school, plays basketball and soccer. Wright, who grew up with her six siblings and eight cousins, returns to McNairy County for holidays and sometimes for career fairs at the school. “I come home,” she said. “But not as often as I would like to.” Wright has some advice for today’s high students. “Strength has no gender, courage has no limit, genius has no race,” she said.

Russian occupied communist-controlled East. Plunk was in West Germany on Oct. 12, 1960, when Russian Communist First Secretary Nikita Khrushchev took his shoe off at the United Nations and beat it on the podium, commanding the U.S. to “get out of West Germany or else.” “We were sitting there waiting on the or ‘else’ because we weren’t going anywhere,” Plunk said. “It was scary at the time because our job was to evacuate military dependents from Germany to France if a conflict happened.” It never did. After returning home, Plunk went to work for the Tennessee Valley Electric Company (TVEC), serving Hardin County east of the river and all of Wayne County. He finished his engineering degree in 1966 through International Correspondence School out of Scranton, Penn. Plunk founded Dixie Youth Base-

Michie second grader Moses McEwen picks up his free water bottle during the Sodabriety Month kickoff at Michie Elementary School.

Michie students believe water is great By Steve Beavers Assistant Editor

MICHIE – Water is great. Michie Elementary School students believe it, and are pledging to drink more H2O and fewer sugary drinks. Students made the commitment by signing their names on tiny raindrops to kickoff Sodabriety Month in McNairy County on Monday. Sodabriety is a program designed to encourage students to drink more water and fewer sugary drinks in effort to reduce rates of obesity and diabetes in Tennessee. Each student, teacher and school staff at all county schools were presented with a free water bottle during the kickoff. Lifespan Health, a non-for-profit community health organization in McNairy County, provided the water bottles. Close to 4,100 students in the county took the pledge. “This is a challenge for

all of us to live our lives in a healthy way,” said McNairy Director of Schools Wayne Henry before signing his pledge. Michie School became the first school in the nation to install two filtered drinking fountains throughout the school in August. Five more fountains have since been added to the campus. Two filtered drinking fountains are now at each school in the county. “Hydration is important in school,” said Director of Community Health Programs for the Tennessee Clean Water Network Kimberly Pettigrew. Cherish McGee – a teacher’s aide at MES – came up with the idea to replace old water fountains at Michie with the filtered variety. A $50,000 grant funds two fountains at each school. “The more water we drink the more healthy and hydrated we are,” said Michie Principal Dr. Matt Alred. “It is very important for us to take advantage of the opportunity and make healthy decisions.”

“She would be delighted with what is going on tonight,” said Boley. “Micki was an unselfish teacher who got to know her students on a personal basis.” Awareness is the most important reason for the dessert tasting event, according to Boley and literacy council board member Ray Prather. “This wakes people up to what is going on,” said Boley. “People get to see what the council offers through events like this,” added Prather. Judges used a worksheet to determine the winners of the Best Dessert and Best Table Presentation categories.

The Best Dessert award went to Michael’s Tires of Selmer for their “Gear Shift” Cake Pops. Legacy Hospice’s “Jello Shots,” First United Methodist Church’s “Banana Cream Boots,” Rockabilly Too’s strawberry cake and Creative Cakes by Marcia’s walnut and pecan brittle also received high marks, according to judges. “The variety of dishes at each table was vast and nearly every stop could find a savory dish to contrast the sweet,” said Independent Appeal’s Drew Wheeler. “A Best Savory Item category is already in the works for next year’s event.” Each table had multiple desserts and no entry reviewed received an average score of less

than a six on a scale of 10, according to Wheeler. Judges used the statistical worksheets again to determine the Best Table Presentation award winner. The First United Methodist Church Children’s Ministry took the award for the second straight year with a cowboy/rodeo theme which netted them an 10/10 average score. The tie for second and third places included entries by McNairy Tourism, Rockabilly Cafe and Rockabilly Too, the First Christian Church, Michael’s Tires, Legacy Hospice, Phillips 66–Spectrum, Full Gospel Fellowship Church, Creative Cakes by Marcia, BancorpSouth and Selmer Parks and Recreation.

Office of Sheriff • Accrued vacation leave balances exceeded the maximum balance provided by the county’s personnel policy. • The office had accounting deficiencies. • The office did not deposit some funds within three days of collection. • Duties were not segregated adequately. “All of the findings have been addressed and are in the process of being corrected,” said McNairy County Sheriff Guy Buck. Buck said the accounting deficiencies concerns a relationship with a third party vendor who manages the Jail Commissary Account. “That relationship will end in this budget year and no new vendor will be providing those services ... the accounting issue will cease to exist at that time.” The sheriff said the office also doesn’t handle very much cash during a budget year in response to not depositing some funds within three days of collection. “In an effort to segregate duties there may have been an instance when timing of work schedules either prevented the preparation or the deposit of funds within three days,” said Buck “Every effort has been made to segregate these duties and stay within the three-day requirement.” The office follows Internal Control Policy for a two-person

The first item basically said for every $500,000 project five percent of the project must be withheld and put into an escrow account. “No one in our office had ever heard of that,” said Henry. The internal control finding involves checks written by the district which haven’t been cashed in a year. “If someone doesn’t cash a check from us we have to take the unclaimed money and return it to the state,” said Henry.

Former McNairy student writes children’s art book By Jeff York Contributor

A 1980 graduate of McNairy Central High School has written her first art book for children. Kathy Busse Barbro published the book “Sharpie Art Workshop for Kids.” “I’ve been moonlighting to my moonlighting job and have written my first art book,” said Barbro. “Quarry Books asked if I would be interested in creating a Sharpie art book for kids as they had just done well with one for adults.” Barbro said she was thrilled to do the book.

arson charge in Sweetwater, Tenn and other charges in Mississippi. “The more we dug, the more we found,” said Steve Ellsworth, an investigator with the McNairy County’s Sheriff’s Office. Roland, 24, and Alexander, 23, were arrested in Tupelo, Miss. and extradited to McNairy County. They face charges of theft of property, identity theft victim rights, criminal impersonation, forgery and aggravated burglary in the county. Ellsworth said the two men broke into Roland’s grandfather’s house and shop. They took keys to other homes of Roland’s family where they stole their personal information. The two charged 17 items on a family member’s account, t o t a l i n g $6,138.84. “ T h e y were pulling money out of direct deposit ALEXANDER

“Browsing bookstores for inspiration has always been the ultimate treat for me,” she said. “To see something of mine on the shelf is literally going to be a dream come true.” “Sharpie Art Workshop for Kids: Fun, Easy, and Creative Drawing and Crafts Projects” was released in November. The book can be purchased on Amazon for $13.38. The book is a wonderful tool for any teacher or parent looking for amazing art projects to do with items they have around the house or classroom, according to an Amazon review. Barbaro now lives in Studio City, Ca. a c c o u n t s,” said Ellsworth. Roland and Alexander were found in possession of seven BancorpSouth bank statements from BurnsROLAND ville, Miss. along with numerous half dollars and gold dollars when arrested Three BancorpSouth credit cards, a HP laptop computer, a checkbook and seven pages of bank statements were also part of the items recovered. They also had new cellphones purchased in Sweetwater with stolen information. “They kept tremendous records in several books,” said Ellsworth. “They had everything you could think of written down.” Ellsworth said close to 10 people are victims in the case. McNairy County Sheriff Guy Buck said he is proud of Ellsworth’s efforts. “He kept digging and didn’t stop with an easy charge,” said Buck.

posal to the county commission requesting the county issue Proposed School Bonds in two or more emissions. The school board agreed to a pledge of the Pledge School Funds and authorizes the county commission to additionally pledge such funds in connection with the issuance of the bonds. McNairy County Director of Schools Wayne Henry and Board Chairman Jarrell Stanfield are authorized to enter into negotiations with the appropriate representatives of the county commission in order to memorialize the school district the board of education’s pledge of the Pledged School Funds and the reciprocal agreements of the county and and board of commission in the form of the draft Interlocal Agreement. The final step of the resolution gives the director of schools and board of education chairman authorization to take any steps necessary to fulfill the terms of the final executed Interlocal Agreement. “Basically the resolution says the school board is requesting the county commission enter into an agreement on the final aspects of the project” said Henry. By signing the resolution the board of education agrees to contractually obligate itself and the school system to pay all the debt service – principal and interest – on the Proposed School Bonds.

said Mala. “I always come away feeling better inside and out following her class.” “She has taught me the cleaning of the mind and relaxing of the body can be as simple as taking the time to breathe,” added student Ronnie Brooks. “Simchah has made it ever so clear that improving your relationship with the Lord through prayer and following His teachings can prepare you for life’s everyday challenges.” Simchah hopes to add a life

coach certification in the future to her 500-hour registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) and Certified Yoga Therapist (CYT) with Yoga Alliance certifications. “Half of our problems are how we think,” she said. “Yoga will change that ... it will change your life.” (Those interested in yoga can learn more about Breath of Life Yoga & Therapy at www. breathoflifeyoga.org. Information can also be found by calling 731-610-5517.)

The resolution now goes to the budget committee of the county commission. The committee and the school board met prior to the regular school board meeting on Thursday. “The biggest thing was getting everyone together to have a good discussion about the project,” said Henry. The project request seeks to add 16 classrooms, administration offices, a multi-purpose building and a cafeteria to Adamsville Elementary. Cost of the 30,000-square foot project will be about $5.6 million. At Selmer Elementary, the proposed new addition would add 36 classrooms, administration offices, and a cafeteria and kitchen, as well as equipment. The new building will take up to 85-86,000 square feet and would cost $13.7 million. Total cost of the proposed project is $19.3 million. “This will allow us to build what we need to build,” said Henry of the project plan. The $19.3 million amount can be used for either building or furnishings. Henry said the board feels comfortable at the $19.3 figure because it enables them to stay at or near their current debt service payment. The figure also allows the district to begin construction while still paying its present debt without adding to the current debt. School board member Mark Massey has been part of two

building plans in the early 80s and late 90s as principal of Adamsville High School. “This is the prime time of construction,” said Massey. “Just looking at things, I think it makes sense to start moving at least on our part.” Massey added he has no reservations about the project. “It’s green light for us and imperative we make a move and not delay,” he said. In other board business: • Approved the request for maternity leave for Bethel Springs Elementary’s Allison Lambert and Sandra Miller. • Voted to hire Judy Austin for four hours per day as a McNairy Central cafeteria worker; Roger Williams as Selmer Middle School custodian; Ashley Poole as Selmer Elementary Special Education parapro and Angie Edwards as a cafeteria worker. • Passed the second reading on Emergency Preparedness Plan, Instructional Materials, Student Surveys, Analyses and Evaluations, Prevention and Treatment of Sudden Cardiac Arrest and Student Records policy updates. • Approved the Offer vs. Serve Policy. • Passed the copier request of Selmer Middle School. • Approved the first reading of the Student Wellness policy update. • Upheld the discipline decision of a student who was given 45 days in alternative school for fighting on a school bus.

rely on public opinion polls to make a decision. His motto was aptly described by the plague on his desk which proclaimed “The Buck Stops Here!” Truman made the decision to drop the bomb on Japan which finally ended the war. Some bleeding hearts still insist it was a bad decision but that it conservatively saved a quarter of a million lives on both sides. Among other things he fostered the Marshall Plan which helped Europe get back on its’ feet economically which was in our best interest. No to mention many othe ractions such as the Berlin airlift which kept communist Russia from totally taking over the area. Those and other moves that did not meet with popular support. Both FDR and HST were true statesmen. Reagan and Eisenhower both come close. The rest that have held the office do not measure up to these. Not to say they did not try. They just just weren’t real leaders that the country requires. Now a few words about President Trump. He apparently has a clear vision of what needs to be done to get us on the road to greatness. His action sin the first few days of his administration make that very clear. He is moving faster than anyone would have guessed and obviously accustomed to getting things done quickly. One might argue with his motives and timing. However, upon review it is not too difficult to copmrehend his intention and rush to accomplish his immediate goals because there is much more to be done. Quite frankly, as highly as I personally regard FDR and HST they didn’t always act as I might have expected and I did not agree with everything they did. But that’s what it is all about! We cannot expect our leaders to satisfy our every whim so long as the overall results are in the nation’s best interests. Should we not look at President Trump in the same way? Lets stop listening to the biased rhetoric of the crybaby media who just cannot admit they were wrong and have been since before the election. Lets come together as Americans and put a stop to this poor loser outcry. Yes, it is only natural to have some doubts and questions about some of President Trumps actions but it doesn’t seem to be much doubt about his vision for the future. Truthfully, I was cautiously optimistic following the election. I still am but now I do believe the Presdient’s approach and leadership is just what our nation needs. Lets at least get behind him and silence the naysayers who would undermind his programs. God Bless America, Mel Chval Crump

McNAIRY VOICES

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor, It has been pretty bumby at times, but the end results have helped our country be the best in the world. However, never in my eighty some years have I witnessed such absolute foolishness by so many of the American people! That is if you swallow the medias’ dialogue and reporting in general. Their stock in trade is half truths and manipulated facts. And to what end? The answer to which is quite simple. Get Trump at all costs. Congressmen acting like little children, some citizens hiding behind our consititutional rights to create riotous situations, etc., etc. If it isn’t what is going on with the issue of the moment it will be any othe rissue they can blow out of proportion and bend to their misguided ideology. Coincidentally, too many politicians (you will note I did not say statesmen) are either doing so because of political party affiliation and/or are pandering to what they perceive public opinion may be especially in the own constituancy. Having already admitted to my advanced years, I would like to simply urge the voting public and their representatives to learn from history. Unfortunately we have endured too many Presidents and politicians who care not but to get re-elected. Two past Presidents stand out as men who has strong convictions of what was in the best interest of our great country regardless of public opinion. Let me give you a thumbnail sketch of these two men of quite diverse backgrounds but with the afore said attitudes. If you research the situation leading up to WW II you will learn the American public was overwhelmingly isolationist. They wanted to part of the war that was raging in Europe. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) was our President who came from a wealthy family plus had personal health problems. Be that as it may, he knew we would have to become involved in the conflict or face possible invasion of our country. Thus, prior to December 7, 1941 he worked behind the scene with Winston Churchill, Englands Prime Minister. It has been noted by historians FDR’s policies provoked Japans attack on pearl Harbor dragging us into the war. It was a necessary calculated policy which was to rally the public into what was the correct action for our country’s survival. Now consider Harry S. Truman (HST) who came from a very humble background and certainly not wealth buy with the same attitude and lov eof country as FDR. He inherited WW II at a very critical time. However, he had a clear vision of what course was best for the nation. Like FDR he did not put his finger in the air to see what way the wind was blowing or

I believe in it. I believe everyone should be entitled to an education whether they can pay for it or not. It benefits the country, doesn’t it?

I’m all for it.

That’s great. Give everyone you can a way to help them out. Help give them all you can, give them a push.

I think that’s a good thing. I think everyone deserves an education whether they can afford it or not. I think everyone ought to be able to go.

I think it’s a good idea; I hope he’s not being too naïve. People have had a hard time paying for college and it’s a way for them to show their kids hard work pays.

There are organi- them. I follow his argument to zations such as Stomp Out

a certain point, but my argument is that bullying is so much more public and permanent than it was back in our day. When we were children, bullying was limited to your school or your neighborhood. And, after a period of time, would fade from people’s minds. But in the age of technology, with the creation of cyberbullying, someone being cruel to another has opened this behavior up to the world. This alone can make bullying exponentially more devastating than it was when we were children. And don’t forget, the Internet isn’t written in pencil but in ink and once something humiliating is out there, it’s out there for good. To me, whether or not our children aren’t as “tough” (to quote my husband) as we were, the sheer level of humiliation makes bullying more serious. I don’t believe bullying is any more prevalent that it used to be, with statistics on the Stomp Out Bullying web site stating that one in six students report being bullied or seeing others bullied and one in eight

An aging mother

By Molly Moore Guest Columnist I always loved my black hair until I began to see gray. There isn’t a lot, but it is there nonetheless. I see it every day and I try not to be vain, but sometimes I can’t stop myself. I always heard that if I plucked the gray out and threw it in the fire then the gray wouldn’t come back. That isn’t working for me, because believe me, I am plucking. After a great deal of thought about my hair, I came to the conclusion to

having experienced “bigotry and name calling.” This sounds pretty similar to my elementary days. How many of us can admit that we were never teased or teased another? That we never witnessed someone else being teased or as we used to call it, picked on? Personally, as I’ve tried to explain to my girls as they get older, I feel we have to accept that there are cruel people in the world. There are people whose only pleasure seems to come from causing pain to someone else. And, as my mother taught me, I teach them, ignoring this type of person is the best bet. However, in a cyberage when online bullying seems too far to frequently lead to suicide, I teach my children that if they see someone deliberately hurting a friend, then they need to stand up for their friend. I can only pray that I am teaching my children the proper lessons and that they can grow to ignore bullies and be a strength to friends. What are your thoughts on bullying?

I just can’t let that happen. So until then I will continue to pluck and try hard not to use my “I mean it” face so often. And I mean it.

Tyquavia Johnson (center) and Sara Jo Hurst combined or came together to do their Senior Project this year. The two collected food and donated it to McNairy County Loaves and Fishes. Johnson’s church Little Zion Missionary Baptist Church helped in the project. Church members pictured with Johnson include Bernita Barnett (left) and Pam Traylor (right) along with her grandmother Mary Greer (back at left) and Pinky Scales.

Senior Project: Food donation drive For the Independent Appeal

McNairy Central High School seniors Tyquavia Johnson and Sara Jo Hurst shared their Senior Project. Their Project involved a food donation drive for McNairy County Loaves and Fishes. The three-week long drive gathered food for the local food pantry under the leadership of both girls. It was a great lesson for the girls, according to both seniors. On the date the food was presented to the pantry, Tyquavia was not able to be present and was not able to take part

in the final distribution of the food to the pantry. Sara Jo delivered the final portion of the project. Tyquavia put forth a personal effort within her family and church family to collect food delivered that day. She stood before her church family and made a plea for this cause, collected and delivered her portion of the food to the school. Because she made this a special undertaking, it meant a lot to her father, Omar Golden and nana, Mary Greer along with her church family, Little Zion Missionary Baptist Church.

As part of McNairy County’s 2012 Disaster Grant through the state’s Community Development Block Grant program the 911 system is being expanded with eight new outdoor early warning sirens in rural communities. Federal funds became available to the area through the State of Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development after the tornado event in 2008

and flooding in 2010. The County applied for disaster funds for flood mitigation projects and to increase emergency response preparedness. Funds were awarded for the new sirens, drainage improvements on Forty Forks Road and Litt Wilson Road, a new emergency vehicle and barricades for the highway department, and a new 4X4 quick attack rescue truck for the fire department.

Lady Cardinals collect road victory By Joel Counce Contributor

KOSSUTH, Miss. – The Adamsville Lady Cardinals used a fast start and strong defense to close the regular season with a win. The Lady Cardinals (11-13) downed the Kossuth Lady Aggies 52-45 on the road. AHS opened District 15-A Tournament play on Tuesday at Scotts Hill. Sarah Shoate scored five of her 11 points in the second quarter, shooting 3-for-5 from the charity stripe and netting most of the Cardinals’ nine points in the period. Madison Hollin scored 11 of her team-high 13 points in the second half. Adamsville held the Aggies to one field goal and three points in the first period,

then matched them at nine apiece in the second for a 24-12 halftime lead. The Cardinals took a 37-24 lead into the final frame.

Aggies 90, Cardinals 64

Adamsville couldn’t contain the Aggies’ offense. The Cardinals had a balanced attack in the first period, with six players scoring at least two points, but went into the second frame down 18-14. Tyler Luna led Adamsville in the second, scoring nine of the Cardinals’ 10 points. But Kossuth scored 28 to take a 46-24 lead into the locker room. Kossuth’s Aggies hit a total of eight first-half three-pointers against AHS. Adamsville posted 22 points in the third,

Walker steps up on Senior Night By Jeff York Contributor

Brandon Walker came up big on Senior Night. The McNairy Central guard scored 24 points to power his team to a 58-53 win over the Chester County Eagles in the regular season finale for both clubs. McNairy’s win earned them a tie for fourth place in the district and a first round game at Bolivar Thursday in the District 14-AA Tournament. The elimination game with Bolivar will begin at 7 p.m. Walker was honored for his induction into the 1,000-point club at halftime of the girls’ game. He came through in the clutch in the waning minutes of the game, scoring seven

straight points to erase an Eagles’ lead and put MCHS ahead to stay. Fellow senior Jeremiah Sanders scored a clutch basket with 21 seconds left to seal the victory for the Bobcats An ailing Clint Coleman delivered in the fourth quarter with four points during McNairy’s comeback. Coleman had sat most of the game with a headache from an injury in practice earlier in the week. McNairy led 18-12 after one only to see the Eagles rally for a 29-27 halftime advantage. Keenan Davis came through with eight points in the first half in his last home game as a Bobcat. The Eagles maintained a 10-point lead through three quarters and took a 39-37 advantage into the final eight minutes of the encounter. Both teams scored 10 points in the third

quarter. Walker’s 24 points led MC in scoring followed by Davis with 11 points. McNairy finished the regular season with a 12-12 overall record and 3-7 in district play. This marked the first time the boys and girls won on the same night since sweeping Collinwood on Dec. 22.
