Dyer orders security cameras for park The City of Dyer Board of Mayor and Alderpersons met October 8. During the visitor’s section of the meeting, Tom Lannom thanked the board for the $500 donation to the Dyer Volunteer League to help pay for the new batting cages at the park. Lannom also passed out pictures of the park bathrooms from two weeks ago. Someone left the bathrooms in a horrible condition. Lannom advised the board that the Volunteer League hasn’t used the park since the first of July. Any other individuals or leagues using the park after that will be responsible for keeping the park bathrooms cleaned. Mayor Walton ‘Sam’ Thompson advised that he received a call regarding the bathrooms and went to inspect them himself. Thompson added that it is sad that the city can’t seem to maintain nice facilities because people won’t take care and respect the facilities that we have. Thompson had the street department clean the bathrooms and lock them until a solution can be realized of how to keep the bathrooms clean. Lannom added that there will be two individuals that will have a fall ball league at the park this fall. Kenneth Bell addressed the board regarding a water bill that he received. Bell see page 3

TBI seeking public’s help in solving homicide The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is currently seeking the public’s assistance in retrieving information about a homicide that occurred in a Crockett County, Tennessee residence last week. Matt McKnight, 40, was found shot to death at approximately 1:15 p.m. in his home located at 2747 Gum Flat Rd. in Gadsden on Thursday, October 18, 2012. McKnight lived in the home with his parents and his body was discovered by his mother. It is believed that McKnight was shot to death during a home burglary. The crime scene revealed that McKnight had a physical altercation with his attacker and the suspect may have suffered injuries. TBI is requesting that if anyone knows of someone with unexplained injuries, who may or may not have received medical treatment, to contact authorities. In addition, if anyone saw suspicious activity or a suspicious vehicle between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. last see page 3


NOW OPEN - Gary Jolly is the manager of Tillman’s Auto Body now open at 585 S. Main in Dyer. The body shop is a satellite office of the Tillman’s Auto Body in Friendship.

Body shop opens in Dyer Tillman’s Auto Body has opened a satellite office in Dyer at 585 S. Main Street. The main office is located on Highway 412 in Friendship and is owned and operated by Daniel Tillman. Tillman is married to the former Beth West, daughter of Jimmy and Janet West of Dyer. Tillman’s is a full collision center with state-ofthe-art equipment and certified technicians. They also have a mechanical shop and mechanic with 20 years of experience. The Dyer office is currently managed by Gary Jolly. “In Dyer we will give estimates. You can drop your vehicle off and we will pick it up with a rollback and take it to the Friendship shop, fix it and bring it back to Dyer. While the customer drives a rental, we fix the car. Your mind can be at ease that we are fixing the car with state-of-the-art equipment and certified technicians,� said Jolly. “We eventually want to open a full collision center here, a duplicate to what we have in Friendship. We wanted to expand the business and came here due

to the family ties with Beth. We have spoken to State Farm and Siler Thornton insurance agencies and they are glad we came to the area and will support the business.� “We want the public to know we are a Christianbased company. Daniel is also a lay minister and speaks at area churches. He once took a year off and went on a mission trip to rural Kentucky and also South America. He is an honest young man who started his first body shop in his father’s barn. His father was a farmer. He got busy enough that he built a shop beside the barn. After his father passed away from cancer, he built his current shop and home in Friendship. He is an all-American guy,� added Jolly. “We are planning a grand opening and will have free hot dogs and drinks at the store. We have done some remodeling inside the Dyer office. We plan to display an antique restored tractor that belonged to Daniel’s father and an antique vehicle see page 3

Nomadic cook returns home The Tri-City Reporter/Humboldt Chronicle annual Holiday Recipes cookbook will be published next month before Thanksgiving and included in both publications. Area cooks are asked to submit their favorite recipes to include in the cookbook. The Tri-City’s own Helen Holt is a well-known cook. Holt lives in Bradford, where she grew up and attended school. After high school she married a military man and traveled all around the United States and the world becoming acquainted with a lot of different foods. Many years later she returned to Bradford to live after marrying her high school sweetheart, Jerry Holt. Holt loves to cook and several of her recipes will be included in the Holiday Recipes 2012 cookbook. “When I was a young girl growing up in the south, I lived with my grandmother and I was not allowed in the kitchen maybe because my intentions weren’t too pure. I wanted to test (taste) everything as soon as it began to have the flavors of what it was intended to be,� said Holt. “But things were soon to change when I went to live with my mother and I found myself with a sharp knife and whole chicken to cut up, and then flour and cook in time for dinner. To this day, I am a fanatic about washing my hands after touching raw chicken. I can’t stand food on my hands!� “Then there was high school and Home Economics, where we were expected to not only cook biscuits and bacon and eggs but eat them. None of us knew how to properly use a knife and fork but Mrs. Boone had told us that if the bacon was crispy, it was permissible to eat it with our fingers. Therefore, my group had the crispest, brownest bacon in the class. And we ate it with our fingers,� Holt said. Holt married shortly out of high school and moved to Guam. “They had the largest, juiciest shrimp I had ever seen. And the things that my neighbors ate – people from Mt. Desert Island, ME, Detroit, Humboldt, the Philippines and all across the Western U.S. So we would have potluck dinners and try each other’s offerings. It was a way to become acquainted with a lot of different foods, not all of them bad,� she added.

“We then lived in California for a year and I really learned a lot. There were oranges, lemons, and loquats hanging from the trees, strawberries growing in the medians of the freeway, free for the picking. My landlady was an old world Italian lady, but even better, I met a Sicilian in Mayport, Florida who taught me not to ever put the tomato seeds in spaghetti sauce and add a breast of lamb to the sauce to give it a sweet taste,� Holt said. “I learned another thing in Mayport, devastating as it was, I had developed an allergy to shrimp and all shell fish-the good stuff like lobster, crabs and crawfish.� “I watched the owner of the company I worked for eat steak tartar at the restaurant 21. I have never had the courage to try even one tiny bite.� “Having traveled to and lived in so many environments, I liked to try different foods, as long as they don’t wiggle see page 3

HOLT MIXES UP MAGIC - Helen Holt, with the tools of her trade, whips up an amaretto pound cake in her kitchen. Some of Holt’s favorite recipes will be included in the Holiday Recipes 2012 next month in the TCR.


Rutherford to lower salary for mayor, board During the regularly scheduled meeting of the Rutherford City Board, held on October 15, under the heading of new business, alderman Bob White stated he was asked to present an ordinance reducing the mayor’s salary to $450 and the alderperson’s salary to $40. Alderman Don Greer made a motion to pass the first reading of the ordinance amending salaries. White seconded the motion. Alderperson Kathy Keith stated her opinion of the aldermen’s salary being a fair amount at $50 and the mayor should be at $500. Keith also stated that with the money saved on the decrease, the city crew should have an increase due to them not having one in years. The board approved the measure as follows: with Emerson, White and Greer voting to lower the salaries, while Comstock and Keith voted against lowering the salaries. Also under new business, Mayor Keith Cardwell advised the board on the water bill for Farmers & Merchants being incorrectly billed for years. Cardwell said, “State law requires us to reimburse 36 months. The total to be reimbursed will be around $2400. The problem has been corrected and going forward the billing will be correct.� see page 2

MADD plans countywide meeting Gibson County MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) is planning a countywide meeting Monday night, November 5, at 6 p.m. at the Teapot Room in Trenton City Hall. “If you have been a victim of losing a loved one to this deadly crime, we ask your support a few hours of the week to help bring awareness to Gibson County MADD. We need your involvement and support. Find out how you can make a difference!� Shirley Lancaster said. The mission of MADD is to eliminate drunk and drugged driving, support victims of this violent crime, and to prevent underage drinking. At the meeting discussions will include ways to support MADD here in the local community through activities such as candlelight vigils to honor victims from the area and law enforcement recognition. Also discussed will be opportunities to bring to this area a new MADD program called “Power of Parents,� which offers information see page 3 /PX  0OMZ

Insight & Opinion

Clayburn Peeples reports: I was driving down the highway the other day when the Eddie Rabbit/Crystal Gayle song, “You and I” (“Just You and I”) came on the radio. Great song; really bad grammar. It should be, of course, “Just you and me,” but songwriters get to break grammatical rules with impunity if they need to, and often when they don’t. It’s called poetic license, and it is sometimes considered necessary to express a thought in a natural or inspired way that is just not possible when using “correct” grammar. And I guess whoever wrote the song thought “Just you and me” was not as mellifluous as “Just you and I,” and maybe he was right, so we’ll have to give

We’re doing horrible damage to our language frequent use over time, will do horrible damage to our language. And our grammar is definitely getting worse. Or, as a young person said, not too long ago, “People speak, like, really bad, you know?” Yes, unfortunately, we do. And in addition to the attrition of our culture such language lapses cause, they also do damage to the individuals uttering them. How so? Glad you asked. First of all, bad grammar might just keep you from getting a good job. In a recent survey of corporate hiring managers, 75 percent of them said spelling or grammatical errors on an applicant’s application were

him a pass on it. But not so for the rest of us, and others, increasingly, are using the phrase incorrectly. You hear it regularly in songs and movie titles, in writing, and even on the evening news. Even our president, a Harvard graduate no less, fell into this trap shortly after he was elected. “President Bush,” he said, “graciously invited Michelle and I to meet with him . . .” Well just between us, when someone invites you and another person to a meeting, you should say, “She invited her and me.” Now that’s small change, you might say, and it is, but just as trifling sums add up eventually to great fortunes, small grammatical errors, compounded by

from page 1 Under old business, Cardwell advised the City Dump Resolution was not completed yet. Also, the price for citizens to dump on a second load is $50 and for out of town $25. Cardwell asked if the board should make the out of town the same price. Alderperson Sandy Comstock made a motion to charge outside citizens $50 for use of the dump. Keith seconded the motion.The board approved the measure. Eddie Bell advised on the outcome of the zoning meeting. The zoning committee voted not to rezone the property at 218 South Trenton Street from residential to commercial. Ms. Adams (property owner) of 302 South Trenton Street stated her mother had lived at the property for 21 years and wanted to thank the zoning committee for listening to them on Sunday. Adams said her mother had worked very hard to keep her property up and if the lot next to her is zoned commercial it will bring her property value down. She stated, “We have offered to buy the lot at 218 South Trenton from Mr. Butler with no loss to him. He would get 100 percent profit

Also, the drain to the wet well has been located when Denton was having dozer work done on his property. Watkins also advised on Bishop flushing hydrants and several repairs had been done. Watkins presented the board with a copy of regulations for a fence around the lagoon. Roger Orgain has advised the lagoon has to be fenced in. There was a fence prior to the tornado in 2006 that had not been replaced. Comstock made a motion to put the fencing out for bids. Keith seconded the motion and the board approved the measure. In the city streets report, Keith asked about the quote PRI gave for the hole in the road at Waldunn Cove. Watkins advised PRI quoted $780 to repair it. Emerson suggested getting others repaired. After some discussion, Emerson made a motion for PRI to repair the Waldunn Cove hole at the end of Hopper and East Knox Streets with up to a $2500 cap on the price. Alderman Comstock seconded the motion and the board approved the measure.

White made a motion to delay the issue until Cardwell could speak with the city attorney to see what the legalities will be either way the property is zoned. Greer seconded the motion and the board approved the measure. Cardwell will call a meeting once the information is received from the attorney. Bell asked the board for help in getting the zoning map and regulations up to date since 1972 was the last time it was updated. Under department reports, Fire Chief Bob Blankenship said his department had two drills and one call out in September. Police Chief Mike Hensley advised of 182 calls for his department for September.

lay, correctly. When you put something on the table, you lay it down. When you recline on a bed, you lie down. “Take the package and lay it on the table so I can lie down on the bed.” But it gets even trickier. The past tense of lie is lay. Confusing, isn’t it? “I’d like to lie in the same spot where I lay yesterday, the same place I have lain (past participle of lie) many other times.” And the past tense of lay, as in putting something down? It’s laid. “I laid the box on the table in the same place I have laid (past participle of lay) it before.” So how did I do at explaining that? Not so good, huh? I’m afraid I may have laid an egg with this column. Or should that be “lain an egg?” No, I’m pretty sure it’s laid. Oh, good grief! Just forget I mentioned it.

Can refers to ability or capability. “May I play golf with you? I can play golf, you know.” And in spite of what the sign in the supermarket says, (“Ten items or less.”) don’t forget to use fewer, rather than less, when speaking of things can be counted. Less sugar; fewer cups of coffee. And whatever you do, don’t use went when you should have said gone, as in, “I should have went to church Sunday.” People won’t say anything to you if you make that mistake, but almost to a person, they will be saying to themselves, “Oh my goodness.” Finally, and this one is admittedly tough, try to use the irregular verbs, lie and

even worse than showing up late for an interview or using profanity. Hard to believe, but that’s what they said. No matter what audience you are addressing, unless it is a bunch of “hip” kids, bad grammar will impress listeners negatively. While it might be considered cool to use improper grammar in some quarters, in most situations, it matters. It matters a lot. Take personal relationships as just one example. Bad grammar is a turnoff. It’s the linguistic equivalent of having ketchup on your chin. Don’t do it! Don’t say “don’t” when you should say “doesn’t”, as in, “She don’t care about us.” Don’t say “I’m going to bring potato salad to the pot luck supper.” You take things to the supper.

policy of elevating Muslims to a special political class. This is of even more concern given that AMAC has ties to the Council on American- Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted coconspirator in the federal Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial. It is unconscionable that our governor would unconstitutionally partner our state government with Islamists, and then allow their involvement with the Department of Children Services. Political Islamists are infiltrating all levels of government in America, from our local school boards to the State Department. The stated goal of

Islam is to make all of humanity submit to Sharia Law. Political Sharia is in direct contradiction to our constitution and is therefore obviously subversive to same. Since Sharia Law is subversive to our constitution, those who promote Sharia (Islamists) are, therefore, subversives. This should not be too complicated, even for a liberal Governor.

It’s gone if he knows it’s around.

Dyer orders security cameras from page 1 owns rental properties in town and frequently has water turned on to clean properties before new tenants move in. Bell had the water turned on at one of his properties for seven days and received a bill for over 4,000 gallons of usage. Bell doesn’t believe that he used near this much water and that the meter must have been misread. Tracy Taylor, Municipal Clerk, advised the board that the meter had been read several times and there was no evidence to show that Bell had not used the water. A motion was made by alderman Robert Johnson and seconded by alderman Chris Younger to adjust Bell’s bill to zero usage. The board approved the measure. During the mayor’s report, Thompson informed the board that he had spoken with Barker Brothers Waste regarding picking up limbs as an additional service. Barker Brothers currently provides this service to Gibson County. They offer weekly and bi-weekly pick up. Barker Brothers will submit a bid for each. Thompson also informed the board that he had been approached by Gary Paschall regarding a piece of property at the corner of Ashley Street and Madison Street. Paschall would like to give this property to the city. After discussion, the board decided not to accept the property from Paschall. Thompson informed the board that he received a letter from Dyer School regarding an ad for the school annual.

A motion made by alderperson Judy Baker and seconded by alderman Roger Gray to buy a half page ad in the Dyer School annual was approved by the board. Thompson advised that he had received several complaints from citizens. Some calls regarded the condition of the old buildings downtown. Other calls were regarding high grass around town. Baker and alderman Nathan Reed added that if the buildings downtown are not in violation of any city code, there’s nothing that the city can do; it’s up to the property owners to maintain the aesthetic value of their property. Reed mentioned that there is a long, slow process for making the downtown area look better. It would involve getting the Dyer Industrial Development Board involved and creating a Downtown District. This would make the city eligible for some grants. In department reports, the Fire Chief Roger Worrell advised that the department has recently had problems with “scratchiness” in the firefighters’ radios. The problem seems to be with the repeater. Area Wide Communications advised that the problem is either an antenna or a cable. Worrell advised that the problem must be fixed to ensure communication between firefighters. In the Police Department report, Chief Brad Lindsey stated that Hunter Cotham will be attending the police academy in January. In the Street Department report, Steven Tucker advised that he is still

waiting on a price for radios for the street department. In the Finance Department report, City Recorder Jason Griggs informed the board that Alexander Thompson Arnold would be auditing the city’s records. Griggs also stated that 12 to 13 applications had been received for the city park position and the board would need to meet and look through the applications and decide on candidates to interview. Alderperson Bitsy Gilliland asked for a park committee meeting to be held on October 15, at 6:30 p.m. Griggs also read a letter from Tammie Wade in which she asked the board to run water service to 404 South Main, which will be the new location for her business. A motion made by Johnson and seconded by Baker to provide water service to 404 South Main Street was approved by the board. Griggs also stated that there is an office at Dyer City Hall that is completely full of antiquated office equipment. Griggs stated that he would like to dispose of this equipment because it is of no value or use to anyone and is taking up space. The board approved a measure to allow the Griggs to dispose of the equipment as he sees fit. In the Water and Sewer report, supervisor William Caton informed the board that he needed to order new liners for the dewatering sludge box at the waste water plant. Caton would like to purchase ten liners. The board approve the purchase of ten liners for the dewatering sludge box. In committee reports, Gilliland asked that the security cameras for the

park be bought as soon as possible to help with the current problems at the park. Police Chief Brad Lindsey stated that he needed to bring someone in to help that is knowledgeable about this type of equipment. Lindsey stated that the digital video recorder would need to be remotely used off site and this was beyond his knowledge of security equipment. In the Water and Sewer Committee report, Thompson advised that the city is still waiting for a part to be delivered to complete the pista grit system at the wastewater plant that will complete the sewer grant improvements. In the Street Committee report, Johnson mentioned that the city had previously approved two valves to be installed in the water distribution system. One valve has been successfully installed and the city needs to install the second valve. Johnson stated that the city cannot currently cut off water in the downtown area and that we should be able to do this before construction on the new bank is completed. Johnson stated that the fire department had requested that the fire hydrant by the bank be moved. This should also be completed as soon as possible. The hydrant could be put in the state right-ofway. Concerning unfinished business, the board approved on second and final reading Ordinance 2012-211 (An Ordinance to Regulate Medium Speed Vehicles). Alderman Chris Younger stated that he would like to see the city board budget money to fix the cracks in the tennis courts at the park.

If you’ll honor me with another term, I’ll look forward to working for you and with you. A vote for Sam Thompson will be a vote to continue Dyer’s progress, to seek new industry and support our established businesses, and to keep our hometown a great place to live.

I appreciate your support and your vote! Political ad paid for by the candidate.

Sunday School for Shut-Ins When you’re ready, please read Amos 8:9. God described the evil bunch of them. They just can’t wait to get their grubby hands on the last dollar someone else has. They’d pretended to worship, but their hearts aren’t there because they are thinking about and itching for the next day. They’re wishing for the day after worship, so they can carry on their business. They have time for themselves and time to make money, but no time for the Lord’s day. The last sentence of verse 5 is describing their cheating. That was how they had caused the humble ones to lose their land. (Amos 8:4-5) “These know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.� 2 Timothy 3:1-2 Scripture warns everyone not to go home with, nor take home such attitudes. They had taken advantage of the poor and trampled the helpless and mocked the humble. These were the evil ones God was speaking to. (Amos 2:70) Amos explained the reasons for their greed. They

By Mary King

were oppressing human beings so that the helpless were purchased for silver. These people were the poor people who couldn’t survive and pay the elevated deceitful prices. Rather than die of starvation, they became hired hands in order to stay alive. Parents did this because anything was better than watching their loved starve to death. What can God do for his own? (Isaiah 41: 17-20) The poor would come to buy food (or wheat), from the evil bunch that had turned from God. Since the evil people in Israel and other regions were oppressing the people who were trying to do right, our God Jehovah couldn’t pass over their sin and allow them to curse others over and over. We see the New Testament picture of Matthew 21:12. God is fed up! He is angry when His people are mistreated. (see Matthew 16:1-4) The evil ones had falsified the scales. (Amos 8:4 -8) But as we see the poor taking off their shoes, we can hear God saying to Moses, “Take off your shoes. For the place you stand is holy ground.� (Exodus 3:5) God sent Moses. Will he do it again?

Election - Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Kenton News by Cindy Lamar The Kenton Youth Center was the site of the annual PrimroseRing family reunion recently. Out-of-state family members joining the 60 “local� attendees were: Douglas and Geraldine Boulton of Ripley, KY, Pam Meyers of Kevil, KY, and Gaye Sale and William McFarland of Dallas, TX. As expected, everyone enjoyed a most delicious meal together along with an afternoon of catching up on family news before participating in the family’s annual auction wherein small items were auctioned to help pay the expenses of next year’s reunion. The many photos taken provide wonderful pictorial memories for everyone. Amanda and Michael McAlister joined over 105,000 other football fans in Knoxville on Saturday to watch SEC rivals, Tennessee Volunteers take on the Alabama Crimson Tide. Although the Vols suffered another loss, being in Neyland Stadium and experiencing firsthand many of the

Vols’ traditions made for a memorable trip. Richard “Red� Barnes continues to do quite well in the University of Alabama Hospital in Birmingham following his successful kidney transplant surgery. He and his wife, Sheila are grateful to all their fellow Kentonians and others for their many prayers and expressions of love and support and look forward returning home in the near future. Food for thought: “Another week is gone,� She said, “they’re passing by faster each year.� “It seems as though the hours in the day, are growing less I fear.� Just then a voice from deep within spoke to her heart to say: “Time may seem shorter but the main thing is, how you spend it every day.� Prayer list: Richard Barnes, T.F. Callins, Annette Barron, Tony Lambert, Dewey Bradley, Charles Emrich, Eddie Carroll, Liam Sims, Jerry Williams, Pam and Terry Sweat, Paul Hughes, Ronnie Lamar, Jesse and Elaine Davidson, Carol and Bobby Primrose, Doris and Sam Weatherly, and Racine Hodges.

From the Preacher’s Desk By Jerry Bell A few evenings ago, as I watched the beautiful fall sun sink down behind banks of golden fleece in the western sky, I did not wonder where it went. While I have never been in the far west, I know that certain lands are there. Others have told me about their Adventures to missionary lands on the other side of our world. I know that the sun has gone and night is coming, but it is only for a short period of time. Darkness may enshroud the world about me, but I am not dismayed, for, piercing through the night comes that gleam of knowledge – the dawn will come and sun will rise again! There is another land I look to in the sunset of life. I have never seen it, but it is a land of more abiding reality than any of these far-off lands beyond the horizon. This land beyond the sunset – this land of immortality, this blessed country of the soul, is the one thing I know with a certain and unshakable knowledge. I may not always be certain about the things of this world, but that world – it is always clear to me. Death is not the end!. It is

rather the beginning. Death is not the master of the house, but only the porter who opens to the godly life, the gate to the King’s palace. Life is not a land-locked lake with three score years and ten as its boundaries. “The days of our years are three score and ten (70); and if by reason of strength they be four-score years (80) yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly Away. Who knoweth the power of thine anger; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. Who knoweth the power of thine anger; even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.� (Psalms 90:1012). Some have lived to be over 100 years of age. The life span of men and women in the U.S.A. today may face the sunset with anticipation and joy. We should not fear the darkness as the sun sinks into the west, but look forward to the sunshine of life beyond the grave!

Medicines for this Heart Condition Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) is an inherited condition characterized by an abnormally enlarged and thickened heart, which compromises the heart’s capacity to pump blood normally. In HC, the left ventricle of the heart becomes enlarged. Shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, and fainting during exercise may be symptoms of the condition. However, many persons affected by the condition may not experience any symptoms. The condition carries an increased risk of arrhythmias, and rarely, sudden death. Persons with HC should remain aware of their hydration status, and take measures to ensure adequate fluid intake to prevent dehydration. Additionally, high-intensity physical activity should typically be avoided, and a physician should be consulted to determine appropriate physical activity for individuals with the condition. Beta-blocker medications, such as atenolol (Tenormin) and metoprolol (Toprol XL), work to decrease the heart’s demand for oxygen, thereby alleviating chest pain. Verapamil (Calan, Verelan) is a calcium channel blocker that works to slow the heart rate and relax blood vessels, and also decreases chest pain symptoms. Disopyramide (Norpace) is an antiarrhythmic medication that works to slow the heartbeat, and may be prescribed with a beta-blocker.

Well, I suppose this has become a monthly column, but here I am again! The fall colors are beautiful to behold. I am personally thankful to live in an area of our great country that shows out God’s handiwork through beautiful colors during the fall. And speaking of seasons, I’m reminded of something I heard in a sermon recently. Several of our church members were present to hear a sermon by Rev. Derold Doughty of Mattoon, IL when he preached at the

Lowrance Chapel by Regina Inman Greetings from Lowrance Chapel. As I write this, I am sitting on the front porch enjoying this glorious fall day. Fall is truly upon us and the Lord provided us with a beautiful day to worship him. Brother Johnny Meadows led our song service Sunday morning as Brother Mark Paschall was in Atlanta, GA for his nephew’s wedding. Brother Adam Leke taught the Bible class at 10:15. Our lesson was “The Plan of Salvation.” The plan of salvation as given by the apostle Peter on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2 is still applicable in our lives today. Brother Leke also preached the sermon at the hour of worship. His topic was “Knowledge Leads to Action.” He incorporated many powerful verses into his sermon, but the one that stood out the most was 1 Peter 4:17-19 which says, judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (Verse 18) And if the righteous scarcely be saved where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? This is just an excerpt from these 3 verses. I encourage you to turn to these verses and read them for yourself. This is really “food for thought.” Brother Virgil Roberts and Brother Cecil Harris presided over the Lord’s table as we remembered the death, burial, and resurrection of our Savior by partaking of the Lord’s Supper. Brother Dakota conducted

the song service Sunday afternoon and Brother Benny McVay presented the lesson taken from the parables of Jesus. In Matthew 22 Jesus recounts the parable of the wedding banquet. Everyone is offered an invitation. It is up to us whether we accept or not. Several of the members attended the gospel meeting at Locust Grove Church of Christ where Brother Justin Paschall was preaching last week. The students in our homeroom class at GCHS, where I am a teacher’s assistant, brought the most food for the Carl Perkin’s Center and won a pizza party. Everyone had a really great time. There were no birthdays this week, but one anniversary, Adam and LaKeyda Leke on October 22. We want to extend our sympathy to Glenn Griffin, whose grandmother, Mildred Blackburn, passed away. Max Betts is in the hospital at LeBonheur. He loves to get cards. He will be there at least another week. The address is: Max Betts, Room 1108, LeBonheur Medical Center, 50 N. Dunlap, Memphis, TN 38103. On the prayer list is Max Betts, Sister Jean Belle, Brother James White, and Sister Barbara Wiley. Our speaker next week will be Brother James Marcus. You are always welcome at our services, Sundays at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. and Wednesday Bible study at 7 p.m. Thought for the week: Life is fragile, handle with prayer.

Golden Agers by Virginia Burgess October 17 brought 12 faithful members to the First Baptist Fellowship Hall. Some of our members were attending the Fall Jubilee in Ridgecrest. N.C. Afterward there was food, fellowship and camaraderie, and prayer. Concerns were expressed for Imogene and James Barron, Faye Jackson, J.B. Freeze, Mrs. Abbott, Danny Morgan, Vamessa Orr, the Hicks family, Pete and Mae Somners, Danny McKnight with Kenneth McEwen

leading the prayer. Kenneth McEwen led the group in singing “Amazing Grace.” Bro. DeWayne led the devotional choosing as his topic, “What causes common stress?” Many causes were cited.Don’t fall into a state of depression, but remember God is always there to help. I Peter 5:7 challenges us to cast our anxiety on Christ. God is always on time. Bro. DeWayne dismissed with prayer.

Bethpage News By Joyce Brown What a beautiful day in the neighborhood! The Master Painter has been at work adding the brilliant colors of fall. A good crowd came out for services at Bethpage. We were blessed to have Bro. Ed Marbury and his lovely wife Ms. Helen with us. The Jenkins boys, Hayden and Conner had recent birthdays and along with Ann Huffine were recipients of the happy birthday song. Janice and Tina played “In Him Alone” during quiet time and call to worship was “Holy Ground.” Offertory music was “For God So Loved The World”. Bro. Ed preached from John 14:15-31 on the Subject, “Loving the Lord.” Sunday night his sermon title was “Unrealized Service for the Christian.” His text was Matthew 25:31-46. Charles sang a special “Beulah Land.” Our plate offering today was to contribute to the Missionary house being built by Tennessee WMU in Mt. Juliet. We collected a sizable donation to add to the cause. Thanks to all who gave for this worthy cause. Just ask any missionary that has been

home on furlough just how comforting it is to have a place to rest while they are on stateside assignment and you will see the importance of this ministry. Borrowed from First Baptist sign: Church is whom we are, not where we go. Have a wonderful week; be safe; remember to whom you belong; live accordingly.

TN District Section 9 Fall Crusade. He mentioned the seasons and compared them to seasons we have in our lives, and that our churches also experience. Sometimes we go through “winter” where everything appears dead. I say appears, because what we don’t readily see is the life still active underground. Trees, for instance, still maintain root systems that prepare for a coming spring. Seasons have reasons! Bro. Doughty is a favorite of our family since we once lived in close proximity to the Doughty family in the Chicago area. It was a blessing, I’m sure, for my parents to receive Bro. Doughty in their home for a brief visit before he returned to Illinois. The fall crusade was well attended on both nights (October 11 and 12) with Rev. Ron Brown speaking on Thursday night. This is an annual crusade with all the churches of the Section attending. The location rotates, and this year was at the First UPC on the bypass in Trenton. On Friday night, Amanda Long - one of the newest attendees at our church - received the gift of the Holy Ghost. Her smile shines at a new level as joy spills out of her heart and onto her face!

Study is about to change, as we are about to finish “Understanding the Spiritual Realm.” The new study promises to be exciting and informative as we tackle the subject “Why We Do What We Do.” If you have ever questioned why Apostolic Pentecostals act, dress, or live like we do, this would be a great time to check out our Wednesday night Bible study. Our pastor and his wife escaped to Illinois this past weekend and we missed them very much. However, there was a bit of nostalgia as we enjoyed a visit from the Rev. Steven Clenney family. He preached both Sunday morning and Sunday night, and Sis. Clenney and the two little ones sang for us Sunday night! It is always pleasant to see long-time friends. We hope you enjoy the fall weather, and that you can get out and vote for the candidate of your choice! And please do come and see us. Although it is autumn, our church is experiencing spring and new life is popping up everywhere! God bless, and thanks for reading!

It was such a beautiful day on Sunday and I hope you enjoyed the weather and your worship experience. Our numbers were down a bit due to several of our band members away for a competition, but they were back for the evening service and for the Christmas program that is coming along. Our call to worship was taken from Hebrews 9:2728 and we were challenged to make our lives count by sharing the love that changed the world. Jimmy Winters shared that we shouldn’t get off course by busying ourselves with things that don’t really matter. He also gave the children an interesting quiz about some Bible facts. Did you know that Psalm 117 was the shortest chapter, Psalm 118 was the center of the Bible and Psalm 119 was the longest chapter? Bro. Chris Marks’ message was entitled “Life is Short; Make it Count.� It was taken from James 4:1317. It was a very good

By Connie Cooper

word from the Lord and applicable to each of us. Bro. Chris wrapped up his series on prayer in the evening service. Our homework assignment is to pray for an individual for at least 15 minutes on Monday. I’ve got a couple people picked out to pray for. We will be having a Harvest Day fellowship next Sunday. Beginning at 5 PM we will have our worship time and then a “soup and sandwich� meal. A hayride and some games are planned to follow. Happy birthday to Trish Davidson and happy anniversary to Bro. Don and Connie on the 23rd. The church recognized Bro. Chris and Bro. Don for “Pastor Appreciation� month with a love offering. We again want to thank you for all the calls and the prayer support for Bro. Don these past three weeks. He will be back in the pulpit on Sunday and I am looking forward to seeing both him and you in church on Sunday.

First, we thank the Lord for blessing us all with good weather, especially on that beautiful Saturday!

Obituaries DR. BOBBY ‘BOB’ MOORE

Glendale, AZ - Dr. Bobby (Bob) Moore, a champion and awesome man of God, went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, October 17, 2012. He was 69 years old. Bob graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College in 1967. After his graduation he changed direction and went into full time ministry. He traveled the U.S. and was used mightily in the charismatic movement. After 10 years of traveling, he decided to settle down in Junction City, Kansas. There he planted a church, a Christian School and a Bible College. He obtained a doctorate in theology. Ten years later he moved to Phoenix. He then had a successful chiropractic practice until 2005. He also returned to his childhood passion for horses and helped his sons to excel in competition. He retired from his practice and felt called back into the ministry again. He and his

wife, Louise pastured New Life Church in Glendale, AZ from 2005 – 2012. Bob was diagnosed with aplastic anemia in 2005 and was given a year to live. The doctors said “he defied all medical reason� and he did. God brought him through miraculously many times. He kept on keeping on no matter what. He was an example of courage and strength to all that knew him. Bob is survived by his wife Louise, his sons David, Daniel, James, his stepchildren Christopher, Andrew, and Elizabeth. He is also survived by his mother Hazel Montgomery and sisters Betty Greggs and Patsy Park, a beloved aunt, Frances Lassiter and Jiselle and Reese, several nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his New Life church family who has so faithfully stood by his side. He loved his family and church family very much, and we all loved him. We will miss him a lot but know we will be together again in heaven.

months of October through December due to deer mating and hunting season. “Deer pose a danger to motorists throughout the year, but especially in the fall,” THP Colonel Tracy Trott said. “November is typically the worst month for deer-related crashes. It is important to exercise caution, slow down and stay alert in areas where deer are populated.” In Tennessee, between 2007 and 2011, 9.2 percent of deer-related crashes occurred on interstate highways. In 2011, there were 5,644 deerrelated crashes, including 285 that involved injuries and two that were fatal. That was up by 4.2 percent from 5,418 the previous year. However, since 2007, deer-related crashes in Tennessee have increased 5.9 percent. Additionally, State Farm®, the nation’s leading auto insurer, estimates 1.09 million collisions between deer and vehicles occurred in the U.S. between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011. That’s nine percent less than three years earlier. The Department of Safety and Homeland Security

and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency suggest the following tips to help prevent deer-related crashes during peak mating and hunting seasons: Remember that mating season puts deer on the move and deer tend to move at dawn and dusk. • Whenever you see deer cross the road, expect more to follow. Many times, the second or third deer crossing becomes the one that motorists hit. •Be attentive; drive defensively, constantly scanning the roadside, especially at daybreak and dusk. •Do not swerve to avoid contact with deer. This could cause the vehicle to flip or veer into oncoming traffic, causing a more serious crash. Swerving also can confuse the deer as to where to run. •When you spot a deer, slow down immediately. Proceed slowly until you pass that point. •If you do collide with a deer, never approach the injured animal. They are powerful and can cause bodily harm to a human. Report any
