for Gibson County, a personal friend and a most deserving recipient of the honor. “He is a past member of the Medina Lions Club, Masonic Lodge #86, an Elected Officials Academy graduate, a 2008 graduate of WestStar, a member and past secretary of the Gibson County Economic and Community Development Board, serves on the Board of the Greater Gibson County Chamber of Commerce, director of the Tennessee Municipal League, and member of Englewood Baptist Church,� Burriss said. “He saw the need to join the county with 11 other West Tennessee counties to form the Regional Economic Development Initiative, whose college access program provides mentors for high school seniors who possibly would not go on to college or technical school because they have challenges with signing up for financial aid or just need a little help filling out admission applications. He realizes that a more educated workforce in Gibson County brings better industrial and retail opportunities. He knows what is good for the county is good for Medina. He is concerned about what happens in his town and what he can do to make it a more pleasant place to live and bring a better quality of life to the people who reside there. He wants to see Medina continue to grow and prosper and is always looking for ways to make his city government work better,� Burriss said. “Vance has a great support system in his wife, Kay, and daughter, Lesley, and now he and Kay get to spend their spare time doting over their granddaughter, Ashlyn.� Bob McCurdy, a former recipient, who presented the other “Person of the Year� award to Ken Pullias see page 2

Insight & Opinion It all started with Columbus

Clayburn Peeples reports: Monday was Columbus Day, but unless you work for the federal government or tried to go to the bank, you might not have even noticed. Columbus has fallen out of favor over the last few decades. It’s politically incorrect to suggest that there is anything to celebrate about his discovery of the Americas. Indeed, many people feel so strongly about it they want to abolish the holiday itself. It wasn’t always so. Columbus Day was once considered to be a major patriotic holiday, first commemorated all the way back in 1792, on the 300th anniversary of his voyages. A hundred years later, in 1892, the entire nation began celebrating the 400th anniversary of the voyages with all sorts of parties and ceremonies.

President Benjamin Harrison encouraged the entire nation to celebrate “Discovery Day”, as it was then called, not so much to honor Columbus the man as to celebrate all that his discoveries made possible; to wit, America. They threw a major world’s fair in Chicago to celebrate the quadri centennial of the voyages, and began what would become one of our most cherished American rituals; the newly written Pledge of Allegiance was recited by school children for the first time on October 12, 1892. Then, in 1937, President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed it to be a national holiday, to be celebrated on October 12th every year. In 1971, President Nixon made it a moving Monday holiday, to be observed the second

Monday in October. It was about then that all the trouble started. Columbus, proclaimed the nascent multiculturalist crowd, wasn’t a hero; he was a murderous racist, a savage villain who destroyed cultures and enslaved entire populations. The equally new political correctness crowd said we shouldn’t offend native peoples in the Americas by celebrating the day, that instead we should proclaim it a day of mourning. Thus began the vilification of Columbus the man and the attacks on the holiday in his honor. He became, to them, a symbol of slavery and genocide, a personification of all that crowd sees as evil in Western Civilization. Some have gone so far as to compare Columbus and his deeds to Hitler and the Holocaust. His

name has been torn to shreds, and before they are through, will be erased from the national memory altogether except as an exemplar of evil. “Columbus murdered a continent,” read a sign at a recent protest rally against Columbus Day. No, he didn’t. It is certainly true that horrible things happened to the native populations during, and throughout the aftermath of his voyages, but that was nothing new for the Americas. Disease and violence in the form of murder and slavery had been going on in the Americas for centuries prior to his visits. The Aztecs, for example, once murdered 20,000 slaves in a single day as a religious sacrifice. The lands upon which Columbus landed were no innocent paradise. What he found were primitive societies advanced little more than Stone Age man. Their lives were brutish and mean and marked by perpetual poverty and disease long before he arrived, and they were well versed already in the concepts of discrimination, racism, slavery and warfare.

Their lives were such a desperate quest for survival that killing each other to gain an advantage was almost as natural as hunting game. In short, they suffered from all the pathologies uncivilized people do, but that began to change with the arrival of European settlers. Yes, they enslaved thousands of natives, and yes, they oppressed entire populations, but they also brought with them a civilization that would soon teach the world that enslavement and oppression were morally wrong and would end the scourge of slavery throughout the civilized world. They would replace the tribalism of the Middle Ages with a culture in which each human being is considered to possess “individual” rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness. And that is the true heritage of the voyages of Columbus. They made it possible for Western Civilization to take hold in the New World. Many, but not all, the criticisms leveled against him are valid, but they weren’t unique to him, or to European societies.

Chamber awards banquet from page 1 said that he achieved more in a few years than most could do in a lifetime. “He grew up in Gallatin, moved to Dyer from Murfreesboro as State Farm agent in 1996 and immediately went to work in the community.

president. He is a Methodist, Sunday School teacher, lay speaker, choir member, Gideon, Youth leader, and cooks,” he said. “Our honoree is a devoted son to his mother, husband to Terry Tillis, father to Holly and Will.

Presenting the “Business of the Year” award, last year’s recipient, Tony Jones alluded to the firm’s longevity that has been a mainstay for over 100 years, opening its doors in 1895. “The Farmers and Merchants, the oldest, locally owned independent community bank in the county, with five locations in Dyer, Trenton and Humboldt. Jones said as he asked Joel Reynolds, the bank’s president, to come accept the award, along with three generations of family members of former president, the late Billy Stover. The bank is in the planning stages of building a new main office facility in Dyer with estimated construction to start in January of 2012. After being in present building since 1909, that facility will be donated to the city of Dyer to use as a City Hall. “Educators of the Year” awards went to Leigh Boyce, Trenton Special School District; Becky Blankenship, Bradford Special School District and Jackie Tucker, Gibson County Special School District, who retired this past year. Special honors were given to Chamber Executive Director Tara Bradford and Chamber Assistant Director Marilyn Williamson for their hard work and dedicated service to the organization. Both will be leaving as soon as a new executive director is hired.

They were simply the way of the world in that age. But what Columbus, and those who followed, also brought were the seeds of a culture and civilization that would change the world and systematically eradicate those pathologies, and do so more throughly than any civilization in history. And yes, he forced religious conversion on entire populations. Thank God he was a Christian. Do you think any of the good things about life in America would have come about otherwise? If so, point to a non Christian country anywhere in the world or in world history, where a comparable culture has arisen. America could have, and would have been, a vastly different place had it been Moguls or Muslims who first colonized our shores. So thank God for Columbus. He planted far more than the flag of Spain on the shores of our continent some 520 years ago. He planted the seeds of Western Civilization and the great American republic that would bring it to its apex. He started it all. And I, for one, am glad that he did.

Lowrance Chapel By Jerry Bell I’m back! You may have wondered why our news has not been in the paper for the past weeks. I was in the hospital for about six days taking antibiotics for an infection. I am much better now and hope to be running near normal soon. I did miss writing our news each week. Several years ago an Air Florida flight bound from Washington, D.C., to Miami, Florida crashed soon after take-off into the cold, icy Potomac River. A Park Service helicopter soon arrived on the scene. It was snowing and bitter cold. There were a few survivors clinging onto wreckage from the tail section of the airplane. The rescuers sent down a line and one of women grabbed and tried to hold on for dear life. Finally, about four are brought to shore, but there is one lost man they try to find, but he had slipped below the freezing waters and drowned. These folks wanted to live! They hung on and didn’t give up! Even in the cold, icy water around them. Have you ever felt like “giving up� on your life as a Christian? We are living in very difficult times. Our lesson text was taken from Hebrews 10:19-25. The writer is giving the Christians, “A Call to Keep On.� The Christians were under much persecution. This was during the reign of Nero. Many were going back to Judaism and denied the divinity of Christ. Christians

had become discontent and discouragement crept into their faith. The Jewish scribe and ruler did things to the Christians with a view of putting a stop to the progress of Christianity. The knees of many Christians had become feeble. Their heads hung down and their faith greatly wavered. They needed help! The author exhorted his Hebrew brethren to do four things: 1) v. 22 To draw near to God with true hearts and in full assurance of faith, having their hearts sprinkled from an evil consciousness, and their bodies washed with pure water. 2) v. 23 He encourages them to hold fast the confidence of their wellgrounded hope. 3) v. 24 He wants them to have a mutual watch over one another, so as to excite each other to love and good works. 4) v. 25 To not neglect the meetings appointed for social worship. Paul continues to warn them against the dangers and fearful consequences of giving-up their faith. He encourages them to endure with meekness and resignation whatever trials and afflictions might come upon them (vv32-34). Let us not give up the fight of faith! We can be victorious over Satan.

Kenton News by Cindy Lamar It seems that Kenton has added several new street people to her population recently. Yes, right in the midst of town you will find them hanging out at the intersection, the doctor’s office and the City Hall and other businesses, as well as the occasional private home. In conjunction with a scarecrow contest in town, these life-like people have given some an unexpected fright, while bringing a smile and chuckle to others. Teachers and students of the Gibson County School System have just enjoyed their fall break and have now returned to the business of learning. The pleasant fall weather added to the enjoyment of their time off. Food for thought - You are my light, You are my love. You are my joy and peace. You are my life, you are my strength, you are my everything! I love you more now than yesterday. And more than the day before. I love you Lord ‘cause you first loved me. I couldn’t ask for more.

Pharmacy & Your Health Treatment for Serotonin Syndrome Serotonin Syndrome may occur when there is too much serotonin in the central nervous system. This condition can be caused by a drug interaction, such as when multiple medications that increase serotonin levels are taken together. Serotonin syndrome can be life-threatening. Anxiety, disorientation, sweating, increased heart rate, and increased blood pressure are signs and symptoms of the condition. A tremor or twitching may also develop. Symptoms typically begin within the first day after starting a new medication or increasing the dose of medication that increases serotonin. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as paroxetine (Paxil) and citalopram (Celexa), have the potential to cause serotonin syndrome. Tramadol (Ultram), bupropion (Wellbutrin), and venlafaxine (Effexor) are examples of other medications that increase serotonin levels. If the condition occurs, these types of medications should be stopped. A benzodiazepine, such as diazepam (Valium), may be given to treat agitation and also small increases in blood pressure and heart rate. If blood pressure and heart rate are severely are severely increased, esmolol (Brevibloc) is a mediation for the heart that may be prescribed. If additional treatment is still needed, cyproheptadine is an antidote that may be administered.

Dyer Church of Christ Our morning worship services had an attendance of 93 with 70 in Sunday school. Our message for the morning service came from the book of Matthew 13:1119 - why did Jesus speak in parables? The people could hear but wouldn’t listen, could see but not see the truth and had hardened their hearts. That’s why Jesus spoke in parables; true followers seeking the truth would find it. Where are our hearts? Do we seek the truth and listen to God’s words today? Our message for the evening service came from the book of Ephesians 4:16 - Paul’s message to the churches. Paul’s plea was to walk worthy of the calling in truth, light, unity and love. Paul’s purpose was to create unity of spirit (not separation) within the church. Paul’s pattern was one body, one spirit, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and father of all who is above all, through all and in you. Remember the following in prayer: Jerry Martin, Terry Clark, Sheila Gilliland, Billy Spellings, Wyman Branson and family, and all of our shut-ins and those in nursing homes.

Cards of Thanks It is with heartfelt thanks to my friends, neighbors, and relatives for all the cards, phone calls and the outpouring of their love to me on my special 90th birthday. Then a thank you to my children for the love and devotion they have for me. They honored me with a beautiful birthday party. What a joy it was for me when little great granddaughter presented me with a special card she had designed, filled with her love for me. Also, another great granddaughter was present showing her love with hugs and kisses. Next, our state representative, Curtis Halford, husband of my niece, presented me with a tribute of proclamation from the House of Representatives. Last, but not least, my pastor’s wife; Cheryl Hayes sang my favorite hymn. God bless her. No wonder my heart overflowed with great joy. May God’s grace be upon each of you as it has been on me. I will just say thanks to all of you. Frances Brown King

The Grapevine We had a wonderful day at St. Paul Sunday. The morning began with a very good Sunday school lesson. Pastor Pounds delivered a spiritual message in morning worship. His topic, “The test of your faith,� was found in 1 Peter 4:12-14 and other scriptures. The male chorus provided the music. St. Paul was observing Rev. Michelle Skinner’s appreciation day. Dinner was served immediately after morning service. At 3:00 p.m., Minister Timothy White delivered the message. His topic, “It’s good

Golden Agers On October 5 sixteen members met at First Baptist Family Life Center. The meeting opened with a reading by Jane Forsythe blessing for the food and another reading by Jane Forsythe.

RELIGION Community Calendars

Bethpage By Joyce Brown Happy autumn to all. Aren’t we having a glorious fall season? The fields are looking bare, as our farmers have enjoyed perfect harvesting weather. Church folks having recent birthdays are Anna Claire Griggs, Todd Littleton, Julie Griggs and Ann Huffine. Sunday services began with Janice and Tina playing, “I Stand In Awe,” for quiet music, and the call to worship was, “Majesty.” Bro. James preached from Mark 17 on the subject “Following the Lord.” His Sunday night sermon was from Ephesians 1:3-9 and the title was “Accepted In the Beloved,” Several have been to see the movie Courageous. It is a fantastic Christian based film and worth your time to go and be blessed by its message. Dennis Littleton accompanied his parents Jean and Riley to Iowa to visit Steve and his family. Steve is pastor of a church in Cedar Falls. They reported enjoying dining at Four Queens Ice Cream, Peppers and MaidRite Restaurant. They were given a tour of the John Deere plant and Ricky is trying to find a way to decontaminate them from all that green paint. They visited the Cattle Congress in Waterloo where Riley went on a dairy judging team in 1951 from Mason Hall High School. They were able to attend Shiloh Baptist church where Steve is the Pastor. They were so glad to be able to spend time with their grandchildren and see how they are adjusting to life in a different state. Kenneth and Wanda Smithson, Tina McMackin, Max and Shirley Hardin, Danny and Jane Hardin met family members from Cape Girardeau at Boyette’s for lunch on Saturday. Also, a cousin, Hesta (Caudle) Williams from Memphis

came to visit with their Uncle Leon Cherry and his family. Zach Cochran suffered a broken foot last week, but he endured and preached at Union Grove and Kenton Methodist Churches Sunday morning. Sunday night he was speaking to a youth rally at the fairgrounds in Union City. A lot of folks participated and enjoyed the activities of Davy Crockett week. Our Mason Hall Quilters were again showing their stitchery skills. They do such a beautiful job. Two of our church members were seen in overalls picking and grinning on the cabin porch. They sounded doggone good for local yokels. Keep it up boys. Allie Smithson won first place in the Rutherford Idol along with her partner Riley Jo Tate. Congratulations, girls. The porch pickers won in the adult division of that talent show. Tim Griggs is recovering nicely following surgery. Hope you’ll soon be up and kicking. The Griggs and Leitherland families have an exciting and important announcement to make. Seems that Allen and Brittany are going to make them grandparents sometime in the spring. We are so happy for them all. Cole Lannom’s parents hosted a huge birthday bash for him on Saturday night. I understand there was a bonfire for weenie roasting and games and gifts and even a hayride; and there was a big crowd enjoying all that fun. Borrowed from Kenton First Baptist sign: This is the day that the Lord has made just for you. We are having harvest day next Sunday Oct 16 at Bethpage and would love to have you join us for worship and good country cooking. See you there and have a blessed week.

First Baptist Church Kenton, TN Proudly Presents

Joan Gregory In Concert

It was a wonderful day in God’s house this past Sunday. We began our service with two specials by Johnny Cavender. The title of the message was, “Lord, Please Forgive Me!” We were privileged to partake in the Lord’s Supper this past Sunday. This holy breaking of bread should never be taken lightly. We should examine ourselves, because whoever eats or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. We are all sinners saved by God’s grace. We should feel

gratitude because of His great sacrifice. Sometimes you may feel that you can find happiness in the things of this world, but true joy and peace come only through a relationship with God. He is your best friend. What kind of friend are you to Him? Give Him time in your life everyday, but if you feel you can’t remember he died for you! How many more reasons do you need? 1st Corinthians 11:26 “For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.”

spiritual leader, Brother Corey began a revival in Atwood. Our Minister of Music, Brother Terry Owens directed the music for a revival at Zion Baptist in Brownsville. We were very well cared for in their absence. Doug Jones led our music. For our special Doug sang, “I Could Still Go Free.” Brother Andy King’s message, “God is in control,” was from Joshua 2:1-16. Joshua sent two spies to look over Jericho and the Promised Land just as Moses did 40 years before. They went to Rahab who hid them, then let them down by a rope through a window. God worked it out for they were willing to be put in His hand. Brother Andy and Charlene King leave for the Mission field in Arizona Friday. Remember them in prayer. Wednesday evening we will enjoy the annual soup/ chili supper at 6:00 p.m. A business meeting will follow. The Golden Mission offering for Tennessee missions will be received October 23. Our joke of the day – After church service a pastor told a woman, “I noticed your husband walked out in the middle of my sermon. I hope I didn’t say anything to offend him.” “Not at all,” replied the wife. “My husband has been walking in his sleep for years.”

FAMILY NITE – Kids of all ages lined up (top photo) to jump and climb on the inflatable party jumpers or to ride the mechanical bull (middle photo) during Davy Crockett Days Family Night Out last Thursday in Rutherford. Those attending also enjoyed free hot dogs and drinks. Zumba enthusiasts (lower photo) from ‘Z’ Party Place in Rutherford surprised the crowd with a ‘Flash Mob’ performance at the Rutherford Fire Department to ‘Footloose’ during the family night out.

“The words of the wise heard in quietness are better than the shouting of a ruler among fools.” This was one of the verses we looked at in Sunday school this week and it made sense to me. Just because someone shouts loudest doesn’t mean he’s saying anything worth hearing. Sounds like today’s political scene. I think less talking and more praying might be what we need! Speaking of praying, please keep Frank Allen, Royce Turner, and Nerine Cowan on your hearts as you speak to the Lord this week. Gene Norman shared quotes from letters written by several miners who lost their lives in a 1902 accident. It was encouraging to hear the words of hope as they talked about heaven and

When you’re ready, please read Genesis 1:2. In order for God to create the heavens, God had to be here first. God is Spirit. He is the One and Only Supernatural God and he alone created the natural. He is the one and only living God who created the living. “He was in the beginning with God.” John 1:2 the word was in the beginning with God. Who is He? The Word. Who is he? God. What did He say?” “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24 Jesus himself said those words to the woman at the well. God’s word tells us where God began creation. “In the beginning, “God was always. God created earth when he decided to do so. God hovered over the face of the deep. It was all his decision. What time was it? It wasn’t fit

for God to tell man the details of what happened during all that time. The Bible would be too heavy to carry with us. But something happened and land was covered with water (later divided and called seas). For the time of verse two, God brooded over the earth. God’s word named this place earth. Genesis 1:10 I’m only using the word that he gave to her. What do you think about the fact that God named earth (in a picture) and yet today we still say earth? God created it from nothing. God made it in the beginning. To believe that God began everything is to take up responsibility under the authority of God.

When we look into the face of the sea, we’d see our own faces. Through the creation of water, God showed us the canvas of His word that would be a looking glass to show us our true selves: when people run away from the word of God, they’re thereby running from themselves and their solutions that are all there in God’s Holy Word. Do you think the word “Holy” scares them? The Bible tells us of redemption and the Redeemer, Jesus the Christ. “In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.” Ephesians 1:7.

Sports & Education Pioneers come close against South GC Hornets BY LORI CATHEY With an energetic homecoming crowd Thursday night was the first meeting of the intercounty rivalry match-up between the Gibson County Pioneers and the South Gibson County Hornets at Yates Field. Gibson County started the game with the ball on the 32-yard line. The Pioneers offense moved the ball 65 yards to the four-yard line to setup a 21-yard field goal from GC kicker Jake Wylie. Gibson County took a 3 to 0 lead with 7:39 left in the first quarter. South Gibson County answered right back with two touchdowns to give the Hornets a 13-3 lead with 3:52 remaining in the first quarter. In the second quarter the Pioneer offense had some good drives but could not score. With 44 seconds left in the quarter the Hornets scored their third touchdown taking a 19-3 lead into the locker room. South Gibson County took the opening drive of the third quarter in for

a touchdown to put the Hornets up 26-3. Gibson County’s defense did not allow the Hornets to score for the remainder of the game. In the fourth quarter the Pioneers went on a 10-play, 62-yard march capped by Zac Cross’ 5-yard touchdown run to make it 26-9 in favor of the Hornets. Gibson County’s Trey Wiese connected with Dustin Murdock for a twopoint conversion catch to make it 26-11. Clayton Yarbro recovered Gibson County’s onside kick by Jake Wylie giving Gibson County good field position at the 47-yard line. Six plays later Gibson County’s running back Zac Cross ended up in the end zone for a 13-yard run for a touchdown. The two-point conversion was no good. The final score was 2617 South Gibson County. Pioneers head coach Lee Atkins said, “We came up a few points short of a victory in our homecoming game. Our boys had

opportunities- reaching the red zone two additional times but came up empty. Take away a couple of plays and this game is very different. I am very proud of our young men. They played hard and fought to the very end.” Trey Wiese was named player of the week for his leadership and work on defense with 7 tackles 4 assists and two point conversions. Senior Zac Cross had 16 carries for 105 yards and 2 touchdowns. GC’s Danny Evans finished with 12 carries for 87 yards. Dustin Murdock had 11 tackles. Chad Cunningham and Clayton Yarbro each had 6 tackles. The Pioneers next game is Friday at 7:30 at Dyersburg.

International Gold, Silver and Diamond Buyers paying on the spot for valuables next week in Milan

By Debi Lambert STAFF WRITER

Milan-area residents are in for a rare treat when the International Gold, Silver and Diamond Buyers (IGSDB) host an event here, from October 18th - 22nd, at the Executive Inn. The company has identified this region as prime territory for purchasing your precious metals— especially gold and silver. The IGSDB estimates that local residents have millions of dollars worth of valuables that they no longer need or want. That is where the IGSDB comes in—they specialize in buying those items from local sellers in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Items like gold coins, scrap gold, sterling silver and tea sets also diamond rings are in high demand right now, and IGSDB is purchasing massive quantities of them on behalf of their global network of collectors, dealers and refineries. Currently on an international tour, IGSDB has included Milan on its list of stops for next week. Residents are urged to mark their calendar for this special opportunity to meet one-on-one with gold, silver and diamond specialists. Because of IGSDB’s low overhead, extensive resources and massive volume, the company is often able to pay out more than other dealers and retailers. Many customers are surprised at how much they are offered for seemingly small amounts. “I had two bent herringbone necklaces, a class ring, and some outdated earrings that I brought to a show. I walked out with $425 in less than 15 minutes,” said a satisfied guest. Providing an economic boost to each region it visits, the IGSDB projects to pay out $350,000 at each event—a testament to the high volume of items they purchase and the prime prices being paid. Offers are made based on rarity, numismatic value, condition and market value. Company spokesman Matthew Enright says, “We just paid $4,700 for a loose 1.25—carat diamond. Our mission is to pay local residents on the spot for sterling silverware, fine jewelry, coins and precious metals—especially silver and gold.” The company has seen a huge influx of gold lately. “Customers have been scrambling to cash into the record-high value of gold,”

adds Enright. For those who are unsure if their items are genuine gold or silver, or simply costume, company will test it for free. “The best strategy is to bring all items to the show for a free evaluation from our specialists. It always amazes me how a small handful of gold and silver can turn into hundreds of dollars in just a few moments. We test, weigh, and buy items right on the spot,” Enright says. At a recent show, a small—town dentist had a nice pay day. “I have been collecting dental gold for years from patients who didn’t want their extracted teeth. It really added up—my check is for over $31,000!” While most people don’t have buckets of dental gold at their fingertips, they do have $750 worth of scrap gold scattered throughout their homes or mismatched earrings. In addition to scrap gold, fine jewelry and diamonds, coins are a big hit. Offers will be made on all coins dated 1965 and earlier—gold coins, silver, silver dollars, half dollars, quarters, nickels and dimes. Enright explains, “U.S. coins made before 1970 are worth more than their legal tender amount because they contain 90% silver. Rare dates and mint marks can make them even more valuable. We recently paid $78,000 for an amazing coin collection. One couple brought in a rusty coffee can filled with silver coins, sawdust, and a dead spider. The can had been in the basement for years. We were happy to send them home with a check for more than $700!” Milan-area residents should start collecting their valuables now to bring to the free event, which runs next Tuesday - Saturday. Deals will be made and money will be paid on the spot. Attendance is expected to be high, but no appointment is needed. Enright encourages everyone to take advantage of this special opportunity to meet directly with specialists from the International Gold, Silver and Diamond Buyers. He concludes, “It’s a great chance for people to cash in their old diamonds, jewelry, coins and scrap gold. This is a seller’s market, so don’t miss out!”
