ABOUT CHEATHAM COUNTY Cheatham County is considered Middle Tennessee’s bestkept secret, a quiet county of small towns along the Cumberland and Harpeth rivers, unscathed by the rapid development that’s engulfed Nashville and other surrounding areas in recent decades. The county benefits from good access to transportation — it’s bordered to the north by Interstate 24 and to the south by Interstate 40. Highway 12, which runs through downtown Ashland City, provides accessibility to both Clarksville to Nashville. The county was founded Feb. 28, 1856, when the Tennessee General Assembly designated the 50 acres of land to the west of Nashville and north of the Cumberland River as Cheatham County. It was named after Speaker of the State Senate, Edward Saunders Cheatham. The county is home to four incorporated municipalities — Ashland City, Kingston

KINGSTON SPRINGS Kingston Springs is located off Interstate 40 in South Cheatham County. Before the advent of the automobile in the early 1900s, Kingston Springs was a famous resort spot. In the mid-1800s, Kingston Springs had mineral springs that produced white, black and red sulphur water. A large inn or tavern was built in 1819 near the springs to serve those taking advantage of their healing qualities. In 1860, the railroad was extended from Nashville to Kingston Springs, and then in 1862 the railroad was extended from Kingston Springs to Waverly, causing a huge population growth within the community. Kingston Springs was incorporated in 1965. Today, 2,756 people call the town home. The town is headed by mayor John McLeroy, vice mayor Tony Campbell and commissioners Gary Corlew, Jim Schippers and Craig Kitch. A full-time manager, Laurie Cooper, oversees the town’s daily operations.

The Cheatham County Fair offers something for everyone. The fair is held each August. TIM ADKINS/THE TIMES

Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event that offers everyone in the community a chance to participate in the fight against cancer. During the event, teams of individuals “camp out” at a location in Ashland City and take turns walking or running around a track for 12 hours. The event is usually held in June. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their campsites during Relay. The Relay event features a number of fun activities, including games, live music and contests. There is also a luminaria ceremony that takes place after sundown, honoring cancer survivors and remembering those lost to the disease. Relay money also goes to fund research and grants for cancer as well as a camp for children who have cancer. The camp is called Camp Horizon and is in Kingston Springs.

CHEATHAM COUNTY 4-H In Cheatham County, 4-H is the youth development organization of both The University of Tennessee and Tennessee State University. 4-H encourages diverse groups of youth to develop their unique skills and talents to the fullest potential. Young people participate in 4-H through clubs, special interest groups, after-school programs, camps and many other activities. All Cheatham County 4-H programs are designed to impact one or more of the five basic competency areas which define the range of behaviors and skills identified as essential for adult success. These life skills include:

CITIZENSHIP/ETHICS: Knowledge and understanding of the history and values of community or nation contribute to good citizenship. Involvement in the 4-H program not only teaches young people to appreciate others and learn about their surroundings, but also encourages them to become involved and find ways to make positive contributions to society. State 4-H Congress, Cloverbowl, Honor Club, All Stars and many service projects contribute to increasing this life skill. To volunteer or get involved, call 792-4420.

HEALTH/PHYSICAL: Through an emphasis on exercise and proper nutrition, 4-H members are encouraged to develop habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle which continue in adulthood. 4-H activities that support this life skill include Walk Across Cheatham County, June Dairy Month, baking contests and Cooking Camp. PERSONAL/SOCIAL: Being comfortable with yourself, cooperating with others, forming friendships, assuming responsibility and having self-discipline are important components of social development. 4-H activities that support this life skill include many camps, Fun with Fashions, Fun Day Mondays and many different service projects.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP Youth Leadership Cheatham County is a cooperative program open to all juniors or seniors in the county. Each year a group of students participates in an opening event and various program days (examples: industry, agriculture, tourism, county government, county services and state government). This program is supported by participant class fees, local donations and sponsors. For more information, call 792-4420.

COGNITIVE/CREATIVE Learning is an ongoing part of life. Participation in 4-H projects allows members to choose specific areas of interest and increase their knowledge of those areas through activities. Public speaking, demonstrations, art poster contest, judging teams, county and state fair competitions and Project Portfolios are some of the ways this life skill is taught. VOCATIONAL: The 4-H club aims to provide its members with opportunities to gain an awareness of and explore a wide variety of career and vocational options. The life skills developed through 4-H participation help prepare young people for successful professional careers. Project work including livestock, sewing camp and many other activities teach workforce preparation skills.

Agriculture

IN CHEATHAM COUNTY

The major agricultural enterprises in Cheatham County are tobacco, beef cattle, row crops (corn and soybeans) and smallscale fruit and vegetable production. The county ranks third in Tennessee for dark-fired tobacco production and seventh for overall total tobacco production. Dark and burley type tobaccos are grown on approximately 900 acres and account for almost two-thirds of the total agricultural income for the county. Our dark-fired tobacco is considered some of the best grown anywhere in the U.S. and much of it is exported all over the world. The county also produces 12,000 head of beef cattle and 14,000 acres of hay annually. Five thousand acres of corn and soybeans are produced annually, primarily in the Cumberland and Harpeth River bottoms. Small-scale fruit and vegetable production is on the increase throughout the county as a growing number of consumers look to purchase locally grown produce.

PROGRAMS FOR FARMERS, HOMEOWNERS UT & TSU Cheatham County Extension provides educational programs for farmers and homeowners. Extension programs cover a wide range of subject matter at various meetings, workshops, on-farm demonstrations, farm visits, tours and field days. Participants are informed of these programs through newsletters, local media and electronic media. Numerous educational publications for agricultural producers and gardeners can be found on the UT & TSU Cheatham County Web site at https://utextension.tennessee.edu/cheatham. Some of the primary programs include: Tennessee Master Beef Producer Program — An educational program designed to provide information to Tennessee cow-calf producers to help them be the very best in the country, improve their profitability and position the industry to be competitive with other states. Dark-Fired Tobacco Research/Demonstration Plots — Two to three research trials are conducted annually with local tobacco growers in collaboration with the University of Kentucky on new varieties and disease control methods. Collected data is shared with growers at annual educational programs throughout the region. Kentucky-Tennessee CPH Feeder Cattle Marketing Program — The cooperative program between the two states and universities provides an opportunity for area beef cattle producers to market weaned/pre-condition ("value-added") feeder cattle to improve profitability in their operations.

48

On-Farm Beef Cattle/Forage Demonstrations — Numerous demonstrations on recommended beef cattle and forage production practices are conducted annually on local farms. These serve as a means to teach area producers about improved practices which can enhance their individual operations and improve profitability. Small Farms "Value-Added" Program — A growing number of small farm operators are looking for ways to add value and increase profitability. Various enterprises such as farm raised beef, fresh fruit and vegetable production, and agri-tourism provide opportunities for these small-scale operations to increase their farm income. UT & TSU Extension provides programs, tours and other educational opportunities for these families. Tennessee Master Gardener Program — A horticulture education and volunteer training program, which is offered by UT & TSU Extension. Class participants learn basic horticultural principles and environmentally sound gardening practices. They in turn, provide a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer service to their community. The Cheatham County Master Gardener's Association provides service to the county. Services provided — Agents provide assistance to farmers and homeowners by assisting residents with information on plant pest and disease diagnostics. Soil sampling services are provided through the University of Tennessee Soil, Plant and Pest Center.

The property is owned by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and is managed primarily for deer, but it also provides good squirrel, quail, turkey and raccoon hunting. The CWMA offers the only public range in Cheatham County. Area residents can enjoy duck hunting with 37 duck blinds in the wildlife area. The annual duck blind drawing is the first Saturday in August. The duck blinds are on Cheatham Lake WMA. The CWMA, which was established in 1939, also offers hunter camping in a designated camping area near the headquarters. Horseback riding is allowed on roads open to vehicles. From Ashland City, take Highway 49 toward Charlotte. Cross the Cumberland River and continue four miles to Highway 250. Turn left onto Highway 250 and go four miles to the WMA entrance, which is on your left. The check station is three miles from the entrance and maps are outside the check station. The firing range is on the left before you get to the check station. Randy Cromer is the manager. For more information, call 792-4510.

Webb rounds out leadership team By Tim Adkins

THE ASHLAND CITY TIMES

Cheatham County director of schools Tim Webb has rounded out his new leadership team for the 2011-2012 school year. Webb announced several new supervisors on Monday and three new assistant principals last Friday. The supervisor and/or coordinator appointments for next school year are: • Chief academic officer: Dianne Williams • Supervisor, Pre-K-12: Sharon Kinnard • Supervisor of transportation, maintenance and custodial: Jeff Armstead • Supervisor, human resources

INSIDE Q Officials tackle budget. 3A Q Band supplements on the chopping block. 4A and attendance: Kinny Jones • Supervisor, special education programs: Andrea Pewitt • Supervisor, technology and information systems: Will Lockert • Supervisor, fiscal services: Sheila Tillman • Supervisor, child nutrition programs: Melanie Hamilton • Coordinator, student health services: Shelley Mayo • Coordinator, family and community involvement: Sandra Chester

Down and dirty

The supervisor for federal programs will be named at a later date. In addition to changes in personnel assignments, these changes will result in a net reduction in supervisory staffing of one instructional supervisor position and one operational supervisor position, the director said in a news release. Three Cheatham County schools will have new assistant principals when school resumes in August. On Friday, the principals named their assistant principal for next year: • Jenny Simpkins, principal of

Webb: “I’m here to stay” Cheatham County director of schools Tim Webb said that widespread rumors of him leaving at the end of the school year are “nonsense.” “I’m not going anywhere. I am here to stay,” Webb told The Times. Some of the rumors circulating have been that Webb is leaving in June to take a job in Washington, D.C. “That’s not true — unless there is something I Tim Webb don’t know,” he said. Webb said he met with the principals on May 18, and one of them asked if the rumors were true. “I told them they were not true and that I’m here to stay,” he said. Webb left his job as the state commissioner of education to become the county’s director of schools. He started in November.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE The Cheatham County Chamber of Commerce is a catalyst … a common vehicle through which all businesses work together for the common good of the community. The chamber’s goal is the continued growth and prosperity of Cheatham County. As an organization, the chamber is committed to creating the best possible business environment in Cheatham County … an environment that encourages and actively seeks business investments from the smallest entrepreneur to the largest Fortune 500 company. To ensure Cheatham County takes maximum advantage of all business relocation and expansion opportunities, the chamber is spearheading a four-year, $1.5 million economic development initiative called “Cheatham Vision: Open for Business.” Cheatham Vision is an economic, business and workforce development initiative, funded and directed by the local business community, which will improve Cheatham County’s economy and overall quality of life. Developed through a series of visioning sessions involving over 50 community and business leaders and finalized through one-on-one interviews with 85 others, Cheatham Vision is an aggressive plan in which the chamber, working in partnership with Cheatham Connect, will focus chamber resources on five critical areas: corporate recruitment, existing business support/workforce development, retail development, senior living and tourism

development. As the private sector (chamber) and public sector (Cheatham Connect) work together, our community now has human and financial resources necessary to actively engage our existing businesses and aggressively recruit new businesses interested in the Middle Tennessee market.

CHEATHAM CONNECT Cheatham Connect, the county’s economic and development office, focuses on helping existing businesses expand and be successful as well as attract new business to the area. The office, under the direction of director James Fenton, serves the county as well as its four cities: Ashland City, Kingston Springs, Pegram and Pleasant View. The office works with agencies from around the state, and can take businesses through the entire process from locating a building or site to walking through the permitting process, PILOT’s and tax incentives. Cheatham Connect can also supply demographics, traffic patterns and counts available for businesses looking to locate or expand their customer base. If you are looking to open a new business, the office can help with business plan preparation and loan applications.Cheatham Connect also administers the Three Star program, a state program designed to assist local communities in their effort to achieve excellence in community and economic development. The county continues to achieve the highest level of certification in this program. The Cheatham Connect website, www.CheathamConnect.com, contains a wealth of information for business owners. It also has a searchable database to help you locate commercial property throughout the country. If you have any questions or needs for your business, contact James Fenton at 792-2379 or jamesfenton@cheathamconnect.com.
