GCSSD board approves field house construction, additions at South Gibson BY CRYSTAL BURNS The Gibson County Special School District board approved construction of a $1.5 million field house at South Gibson County High School at the trustees’ meeting last Thursday. The 11,250-sq. ft. facility will include a locker room for the SGCHS varsity football team as well as a smaller locker room to be used by SGC freshmen football players and visiting teams, restroom facilities and showers, a weight room, and coaches’ offices. The project also includes adding 350 seats to the visitors’ side of the Hornets’ Nest stadium, 350 seats to the home stand, and 100 parking spaces. “With the construction team [in Medina] working on the project [at Medina Middle School], now is a good time to transition in to the field house while we’ve got them,” said Terry Cunningham, Financial Director for the Gibson County school system. “It will save us several dollars.” Lashlee-Rich is currently adding 16 classrooms and an auxiliary gym while expanding the cafeteria at MMS.

was pleased with the board’s decision. “We’re really excited about it,” he said. “It’s something that we need and will help every sport in our school.” In winter and spring, basketball, football, baseball, softball, and soccer fight for practice space in the gym, and all sports use the same weight room. P.E. classes dress out in the gym bathrooms because no locker rooms are available. “This will really alleviate the crowding,” Stidham said. The football coaching staff has worked with the architects and will continue to be involved with the planning process. Stidham said coaches asked for an additional 25 feet in length to be added to the weight room, which will allow football players to participate in agilities workouts together. In his fourth year with the football program, Stidham is glad his players and coaches will finally have a home of their own. “It feels like we’ve been renting a place,” he said. “We’ll try to make [the field house] our own. This is for our program. We want something big enough we can get what we need to get done without being extravagant.” Cunningham said the district will pay for the $1.5 million project with money for its reserves. The board voted 6-0 in favor of the field house. Board member Bruce Pate was not present for the vote. The board also voted to take the first step in adding 11 classrooms to South Gibson County High School, see page 2

GCHS STUDENT COUNCIL - Members of the Gibson County High School Student Council were responsible for the Veterans’ Day program held in the school gymnasium Monday morning.

GCHS holds Veterans’ Day from page 1 to the core of the army,” said London. “Duty means nothing less that fulfilling your obligation. A soldier never quits in anything you sign up for. For soldiers, quitting is not an option. You can jeopardize your fellow soldiers so you fight as a team and protect and support one another. All you students are part of team at GCHS. Resist temptation to quit. Do your duty and never quit.” “Respect is treating people in the way they deserve to be treated. The army is a team and each has something to give.” “Selfless service is putting the welfare of our nation before your own. A commitment to each team member. The same can be said of your teachers and instructors.”

“Honor is a matter of carrying out values. Serve with honor and finish what you started.” “Integrity is to do what’s right.” “Personal courage is to face danger and risk personal safety to stay the course and stand up for what you think is right.” “A soldier is born in faith, of core values and creed. It is the foundation of our country. I would like to emphasize that all men and women who have put on this uniform have done their part in keeping the US free whether they were deployed or not. Please thank a veteran when you see one. It is very easy and it is all they want. They did their part and have pride and you will see it reflecting in their faces,” London said. “Other heroes that

represent core values are our teachers. One day you will reflect on one teacher that made a difference for you. One teacher will be an unsung hero for you. You can go anywhere and do anything you want. Our teachers want to see you succeed but it is up to you to succeed. If you blow it, it is your fault. The test of life is the hardest but it is one you will all take, when you graduate. Academic preparation is from your teacher. Seize that moment here at GC. You can’t go back. You are an adult at 18 years old. Seize the moment and give your full measure of devotion and faith,” concluded London. Members of the student counsel read the names of all GCHS alumni, faculty and staff that have served in the military. All veterans in attendance were named and recognized. GCHS teacher Chad Jackson sang ‘God Bless the USA’ bringing the entire congregation to their feet. In closing, Shelby Dotson led everyone in the singing of ‘God Bless America.’ Hughes thanked the students, faculty and staff for the program. Taps was played as the flags were retrieved.

GCSSD board approved field from page 1 approving the start of the design phase of construction. Cunningham explained that the school, which currently enrolls about 630 students, was built for 550 students with a core construction for 900-950 students. There are currently three teachers without classrooms, and that number could grow to eight or nine teachers if the student population reaches its estimated growth of 775 students in the next three to

four years. “What we would like to do is get the design phase going so construction could begin no later than summer this next year so we could have it ready for the school year 2014-15,” Cunningham said. The addition will include the 11 classrooms plus a work area, storage room, and boys’ and girls’ restrooms. Cunningham estimated the project to cost $2.8 million to $3 million and said the

school board will discuss funding at its next work session. The board approved the addition 6-0. Pate was absent for the vote but did attend the meeting. Lashlee-Rich will serve as the district’s Construction Management Service for the additions and the FEMAapproved retrofits that will provide storm shelters at Yorkville School and Dyer Elementary and Junior High.

Dyer, Rutherford elects new from page 1 of our businesses and tax base, control the blight that takes away from our beautiful town, find ways to mend our broken streets and encourage citizen involvement in all aspects of our town’s business. I will have an open door policy and will welcome the opportunity to listen to and serve the needs of all citizens of Rutherford. I believe in fair, honest and equal treatment for everyone. Together we can rebuild the confidence and trust in our local government and create

an even greater place to live and raise our families. I was taught that hard work and dedication will find a way to accomplish many things.” Davidson was raised in the Rutherford area.

Insight & Opinion

Tasty home grown tomatoes

Clayburn Peeples reports: Summer got completely away from me this year, and I pretty much never made it into the garden. I did, however, have a few tomato plants. But not any to brag about for certain. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even plant them myself. They were volunteers that sprouted in the early spring from plants I grew in the same location the previous season. So many sprouted they were as thick as grass at one point, so finally I decided to just save six or seven of the more sturdy looking ones and see what I would get. And that’s what I did, and sometime around the Fourth of July they began to ripen. Ever since then I’ve had a bumper crop of torpedo shaped, 2 ½ inch long red tomatoes. The vines have looked great all summer; they have been disease free and they are still loaded, even today. Furthermore, the late season crop is every bit as tasty as the first ones to ripen on the vine in the summer. And that’s the problem. They taste pretty much like water, no flavor at all. It is an article of faith among

home gardeners that back yard tomatoes taste like ambrosia, and frequently they do, but not always. These have been pretty much worthless. As I was pondering my short sightedness last spring in taking a chance on volunteer plants, I thought back to the previous few years, and decided that even when things go the way they’re supposed to, home grown tomatoes don’t taste as good as they used to. Could I be right about that? Well it turns out I am. Of course, everybody knows that store bought tomatoes aren’t as good as they used to be, but the usually named culprits (picked too early, refrigerated storage) are only part of the problem, it turns out. An even more serious detriment to flavor is the reason that even your home-grown tomatoes don’t taste like your grandmother’s did. It is because flavor has literally been bred out of them. It all started around 70 years ago when commercial growers discovered a mutated plant. Whereas almost all tomatoes at the time ripened unevenly and

had a blotchy appearance, those on the mutated plant turned an even shade of light green when ready to pick and then an even shade of luscious looking red when ripe. Eureka! Commercial growers loved it because it made harvesting easier, and retailers loved it because red color sells when it comes to food, regardless of taste. And fairly quickly this mutation was bred into nearly every tomato variety developed over the next 60 years. Consequently, tomatoes today are prettier and more profitable then ever before in history. And just about every one of them, except for heirloom varieties and cherry tomatoes, is either too bland to bother with at best. Cherry tomatoes, by the way, taste better than their larger neighbors on the supermarket shelf because due to the way they are harvested, they were never subjected to the same type of breeding. Consequently, they still have much of their natural flavor. Amazingly, no one could figure out why tomatoes have turned tasteless,

until this year. In the early summer of 2012, plant scientists finished mapping the tomato genome, and they have discovered that the 70-year-old mutation that enabled producers to offer us beautiful, uniformly red tomatoes all year long, and has been bred into nearly every variety of tomato developed since then, was caused by the DNA in a single gene out of the 35,000 typically found in a tomato. Unfortunately, this same gene also causes tomatoes to develop between 10 and 15% less sugar, as well as smaller amounts of other compounds that give tomatoes their color, smell and nutritional benefits. Another unintended

Winners in that town’s alderman races were Frank Baker and Wayne Sheehan. Gibson Mayor Tony Black with 111 votes won out over challenger Mary Goodrich who got 58 votes. Clyde Frye and Charles Summer were elected to the Board of Aldermen for four-year terms. Janice Adams and Judy Fonville were elected to two-year terms. Bradford Mayor

Frank Lockard, running unopposed, got 306 endorsement votes while Ann Griffin, Steve Gearin and Terry Johnson were elected to the Board of Aldermen. Dennis Littleton was elected Kenton Special School District trustee in the Obion County position.

consequence is that the same factors that facilitate uniform ripening, decrease the presence of certain gases in the fruits (technically, tomatoes are fruits) that give the tomato its once characteristic mouth-watering smell. And smell, of course, is a huge component of taste. And if that’s not bad enough, tomatoes today have 30% less vitamin C, 19% less niacin and only 60% of the calcium they did in the 1960’s. But the good news is that plant scientists think they can alter the tomato’s genome to put all that good stuff back and still keep the uniform ripening feature. Thus far, they’ve been able to boost sugar content 20%

by modifying the genetic makeup of the plant. But if they do breed the flavor back into the plants, don’t expect store-bought tomatoes to taste as good as those you grow yourself. They’ll still pick them too green and refrigerate them and pump them with ethylene gas to artificially ripen them, and they’ll still have skin so tough they can survive a fall off the kitchen counter. But for those of us who grow our own, the fabulous flavor of heirloom tomatoes will be available with all the vigor and disease resistence of modern hybrids. At least that’s what they are promising us. Home Groan Tomatoes

I’m not a big proponent of social media, but I know its popular with everyone but us old “stick in the mud� folks. So check it out. We appreciate Liz Marks for her work on that project. We recognized our veterans on Sunday and Sarah Allen shared a very touching testimony concerning Veterans’ Day during our children’s sermon. Charles Eddings read the names of all the veterans that are buried in our church cemetery. Sarah reminded us of the words of Jesus, “be faithful unto death and I will give you the crown of life.� Bro. Don’s morning message was taken from Luke 24:13-31 and explored the implications of the Emmaus road encounter with Jesus. I had never looked at the fact that Jesus was giving His personal testimony in His explanation of the words of

Don’s evening message continued with teaching on the security of the believer and how it is related to our faith. Our young people traveled to Union City for lunch on Sunday and to complete their shopping for our Christmas shoeboxes. They returned to the church with enough items to fill 32 boxes. They also are putting in many hours of rehearsal for their upcoming Christmas program. We are looking forward to our continuing study in John on Wednesday and our Thanksgiving meal next Sunday. You are invited to join us. We will not have an evening service next Sunday. Happy birthday wishes this week go out to Anna and Liz Quast and to Bob Taylor. Hopefully you will enjoy a safe and blessed week. Take care and I will see you in church on Sunday.

We need to reflect on God’s Word and hide it in our hearts. The GA girls with the help of their leaders packed boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Others were donated. Sunday morning we had a time of dedication, praying for the boxes and children will receive them. Sunday morning was special as we baptized Mr. Gerald Atkins and Mattie Neal. Our minister of music, Brother Terry Owens blessed as he sang, “How Great thou art.� We welcomed many visitors and were pleased to see our former members Keith and Lisa Flowers. Brother Corey’s message, “Winning the war against worry,� was from 1 John 2:1217. Will we follow the way of the world or follow Christ? He is no fool who gives what he has to gain what he can’t lose. We were proud to honor our veterans. Sunday evening we

Remember our Harvest Festival next Sunday, November 18. Come, bringing your purse for offering, a side dish or dessert and a hearty appetite. There will be no service Sunday evening. We will meet at First Baptist Church, Dyer at 6 p.m. for Community Wide Thanksgiving service. Sympathy is extended to Ronnie and Sue Garrett in the loss of his mother. Saturday, November The Tribute Quartet will perform at 6 p.m. offering will be taken. Come join us. With each change of season, God practices His artistry on trees around us.

But our spiritual body can live on for all eternity. There will be two gates that we can choose to enter. One gate is very broad and one is narrow. Jesus tells us in Matthew 7:13, 14; “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.� We need to prepare for life’s journey. A certain traveler who had a distance to go, one part of the road leading through luscious green fields and the other over an area covered with brambles and thorns made great preparations for the first part of the journey. He dressed himself in light and colorful clothes, and put flowers in his coat lapel. Then taking a light slender, freshly carved came in his hand, he nimbly proceeded on his way along the beaten path across the green meadows. The sun shone in the skies with its brilliance, and on went the traveler, comfortably, pleasantly, delightfully. After a while the road became rugged and steep.

By the time night drew on, the traveler was in a pitiable plight. His provisions were exhausted, his clothes wet through and partly torn from his back by the briars, his flowers were faded, and, weary as he was, his slender cane could not bear his weight; a stream of water was before him, and the darkness was around him. “Alas!� said he, smiting his breast, “I am hungry, and have no food’ wet to the skin, and have no dry clothes; weary, and have no staff to rest on; I have a stream to cross, and there is no boat; I am bewildered, and have no guide; it is dark, and I have no lantern. Fool that I am! Why did I not provide for the end of the journey as well as the beginning?� God will provide for us to have a life with Him in Heaven, but we must put al our trust and faith in Him and not ourselves. We must prepare for the journey. Jesus tells us to “faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.� (Revelation 2:10b) In James 1:12 we read; “blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.� Are you preparing for the entire journey?

Kenton News By Cindy Lamar Hearty congratulations are extended to Thomas and Daisy Reynolds, William and Ann Duren, and Ronnie and Cindy Lamar all of Kenton who marked another year of marriage last week. Between these three couples, they have collectively been married over 140 years. Congratulations, and may you all have many more years together. Mrs. Janet Ring had an enjoyable and busy week last week hosting her many guests who were in Kenton to visit. The Sadlers, Jerry and June, of South Bend, Indiana spent a leisurely and enjoyable week with Mrs. Ring, while other guests came for a day’s visit. Among those were: Arnold and Wanda Semsch of Memphis, Gerald and Nina Barnett of Atlanta, Georgia, Alicia Mitchell of Orlando, Florida and Martha Nell Taylor of Humboldt. The Kenton School had their Fall Festival at the Gym last Saturday evening and was well attended. The children were in their element with all the games and prizes and face painting and cakewalks, etc. While

they played and had fun the adults were enrapt at the auction intent on placing the winning bid on their favorite items that were donated by local businesses as well as generous individuals. Food for Thought: She told herself “I can’t do that� every time the job arose. The task before her really wasn’t hard, but her confidence was too low. Her negative attitude held her back, for many nonproductive years. Till one day she read in God’s Word “I’ll be with you ‘ill the end.� She suddenly knew she wasn’t alone, but had all the strength she’d need, if she’d just rely on Him inside she’d “do all things through Christ� who was her strength. Prayer list: Pat Hurt, Terry Lane, Neal Sharp, T.F. Callins, Charles Emrich, Annette Barron, Eddie Carroll, Jerry Williams. Pam and Terry Sweat, Liam Sims, Paul Hughes, Ronnie Lamar, Eurby Sanders, Carol and Bobby Primrose, Jesse and Elaine Davidson, Doris and Sam Weatherly, Peggy Hutchison, Richard Barnes, and Racine Hodges.

Pharmacy & Your Health Managing Migraine Headache Attacks A migraine is a common headache condition that is associated with other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or pain. Migraines may be a result of a combination of changes in blood flow and nerve conduction that may leads to increased sensitivity to light, sound, or movement. Women tend to experience migraines more often than men. Migraine attacks may be triggered by certain conditions, foods, and events. Some migraine sufferers may experience a visual disturbance often called an aura that serves as a warning prior to a migraine attack. While there is no cure for migraines, available therapies can help reduce the pain and frequency of attacks. Over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers such as combination aspirin/caffeine/acetaminophen may be tried first. OTC products should not be taken for more than two days in one week, since this could possibly lead to more headaches. If the pain does not improve, prescription treatments may be useful. Triptans (sumatriptan, rizatripatan) are prescription medications that come in different forms like an injection or nasal spray for fast migraine relief. Ergotamine products may provide some migraine relief. Some antidepressants (Amitriptyline), seizure (Topiramate), and blood pressure medications (Propanolol) may be taken to help prevent migraine attacks.

Keely Mill by Dianne Hamlin Our services began with Bro. Steve leading us in prayer for Nancy Margadonna. Our Sunday school hour began with Stephen Fields leading us in the hymn, “Doxology.� Scott Fields led our opening prayer. We dismissed to our classes. Christy Skelton led the adult class in prayer before doing a good job teaching us our lesson, “Living with Truth,� from 2 Peter 1:1-21. Peter anticipated that his Christian friends would encounter skeptics who didn’t believe the truth of the gospel about Jesus Christ. Confronting those skeptics and defending the faith requires us to be confident of our salvation in Christ and to have a firm grasp of God’s truth. Diane Hamlin had our closing prayer. Our morning worship hour began with, “A Veterans’ Day Salute,� and dedication to our veterans. Our table was decorated with beautiful pictures of beautiful people who had or who were still serving our country. Everyone stood and said the Pledge of Allegiance to the American and Christian Flags. Kelsey Fields and Lindsey Allmon each lit a candle in honor of our soldiers. Felichia Fields and Dalton Flesher both read

us a poem about Veterans’ Day. We would like to thank all veterans and their families for their service to our country. Elaine Fields then played the piano and Mike Fields and the church choir lead us in the hymns, “O Beautiful for Spacious Skies� and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.� Mike Fields led our opening prayer. Rejoice in the Lord always. Bro. Steve welcomed everyone and made many announcements. For our special music Tonya and Felichia Fields and our youth blessed us by singing, “Redeemed.� Kelsey Fields and Lindsey Allmon also blessed us by singing the hymn, “Day by Day.� Children’s church was dismissed to Jennifer Fields. Everyone stood as Bro. Steve led us in the reading of the scriptures in Psalms 23:16, our message, “The Lord is My Shepherd.� Our services ended with Bro. Steve and several men of the church praying over Chris Younger. We also recognized those in the church who had served our country with hugs and a thank you. Scott Fields dismissed services in prayer. Read your Bibles and pray for our military and our nation. Come worship with us Sundays at 11 a.m.

Get ready for turkey time Henry Memorial Tree

REMEBERING HENRY - Frieda Mitchell, a resident talks to Janie Somers, Henry’s aunt at the memorial service along with Betty Caton.

The Apostolic Faith Tabernacle By Amy Davidson David said, “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them (Psalms 119:165).� It stands true even today. If we will simply focus on the words of God between the covers of the book, we truly will possess a peace that passes all understanding. Brother Davidson preached from the book of John 2:1-11. In these verses, we walk with Jesus through his first miracle. We see Jesus at a marriage dinner where the people had run out of wine. In verse five Jesus’ mother tells Jesus what the problem is and He told her that His time had not yet come. But Mary didn’t show any frustration or dismay. She had no doubt whatsoever that Jesus could fix the problem. So she turns to the servants and says “whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.� Sounds like meek and mild Mary may have had a little authority. Verses six and seven read: “And there were set there six water pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins a piece. Jesus said unto them; fill the water pots with water. And they filled them to the brim.� It’s funny here how Jesus was at a wedding that had been running low on wine for a bit. You can just imagine that He who possessed the omniscient power of God could see the people as they began to fret. He had to know something was wrong. But He did nothing until He was asked. And even then, He told Mary that it wasn’t His time yet. The Bible doesn’t say how much time passed between verses four and seven but it looks to me like Jesus told Mary that it wasn’t His time yet, but then just a few minutes later He was telling the servants to go fill up the water pots. In verse seven the Bible tells us that the servants filled the water pots to the brim. There are so many points that could be made in just these few verses of scripture and oh how it grieves me that I can’t take up the entire paper with this article! So let’s shine the laser light onto this fact: they filled their water pots to the brim. They possessed a vessel that was empty. It once contained some really good wine, but now they were all

empty. Jesus said simply, “Fill the water pots with water.� And they filled their water pots up to the brim. People in today’s world are empty. People are void of feeling – numb and desensitized to the world around them. People are too busy. People are too hungry for money and power and things. It’s a hunger that cannot be filled with anything except Jesus. Yet, while these people who look like they’ve got it all together because they make their way to a church pew every Sunday and Wednesday chase their materials, the broken ones around them fall by the wayside without a second look. Church members run to and fro to this meeting and that meeting and this revival and that one. We travel hundreds of miles sometimes just to “get our spirits fed.� But I wonder how many times we’ve been on our way in a hurry to get to one of those retreats and we passed up the person God needed us to minister to. God can feed us every single day if we make the effort to fill our water pots daily. We need nourishment from the Bread of Life each and every single day. And we can’t just read the Word and hear it. To turn that bread into nourishment for our spirits we have to partake of that Bread. We must DO what that Bible says to do. We must give up what it asks us to give up. We must pick up what it asks us to pick up. Then and only then does Jesus take notice and turn our water to wine. God is good. He is always good.

BY BARBARA BERRY Purchasing, preparing, and serving a turkey can be a daunting task. Be prepared. Before purchasing your turkey, make ample space in your refrigerator, moving shelves if necessary. Fresh or frozen? There is no quality difference between a fresh or frozen turkey although fresh turkeys have shorter shelf lives. By purchasing a frozen turkey, you can get the turkey in advance and take advantage of special sales. Fresh turkeys provide convenience because they do not require thawing. What size turkey do I need to buy? When purchasing a whole turkey, purchase at least one pound of uncooked turkey per person. You’ll have enough for the feast and for leftovers too. When should I buy it? Keep in mind that a whole turkey takes about 24 hours per four to five pounds to thaw in the refrigerator. For example, a 15-pound frozen bird will take three to four full days to thaw in the refrigerator. Ideally, purchase your frozen turkey as far in advance as necessary to safely thaw it in the refrigerator. If buying a fresh turkey, purchase it only one to two days before the meal and keep it refrigerated. Always wash hands with

warm water and soap for 20 seconds before and after handling the turkey. Never defrost turkey on the counter! Turkey can be thawed in the refrigerator or in cold water. The refrigerator method is the safest and will result in the best finished product. Leave the bird in the original packaging and place in a shallow pan and allow refrigerator thawing time at a rate of four to five pounds per 24 hours. To thaw in cold water, keep turkey in the original packaging, place in a clean and sanitized sink or pan and submerge in cold water. Change the cold water every 30 minutes. The turkey will take about 30 minutes per pound to thaw. Cook the turkey immediately after it is thawed. Do not refreeze. Once thawed, remove neck and giblets from the body cavities and keep bird and parts (if using) refrigerated at 40 °F or below until it is ready to be cooked. Your local Extension office can answer questions on safely preparing holiday foods. The Gibson County Agents’ offices in Trenton can be reached at 731-8557656 or online at https:// gibson/pages.

Cloras Chapel By Robin McNeil Greetings from the Cloras Chapel Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Dyer, TN. Cloras Chapel had a wonderful Sunday with many exciting things! First Sunday school was fantastic. We talked about how to weather our storms in life. We found out that we have to have Jesus because we just can’t make it by ourselves. Elder Keith Harris, Minister Kim Jackson, Minister Heather Myles, and Sister Peggy Bonds taught Sunday school. They are all doing great! Our superintendent, Elder Bush McNeil, complimented Minister Jackson for carrying around a lot of resources to teach Sunday school. He said that’s what teachers do. Minister Eric Kirksey delivered the morning message. His subject was “Trust and Obey.� He did a good job! The choir sang and we had a good time in the name of Jesus. Sunday afternoon we had a rainbow tea. It was dedicated and in honor and memory of the late Sister Laura Rodgers, Rev. Myles’ mother. All the tables and food were colorful and the food was delicious. We had great fellowship. Then we journeyed to the Sanctuary and had our program. We had speakers for each color. Red was Sister Sarah Brown from Bradford Beech Grove Baptist Church,

Golden Agers by Alice Ernst On Wednesday, November 7, nineteen Golden Agers met in the fellowship area of Dyer FBC of Dyer for their weekly meeting. Prayer was extended to the Lord for those ill or recovering from surgery including Johnny Blackburn, Barbara Watson, Pam Marvin, Rachel Duck, Danny Morgan, Mae Summers, J.B. and Sue Freeze and for Kay Rayfield concerning her upcoming surgery. We prayed for Orval Comstock during his grieving for Helen who just passed away. Songs sung by the group with Anne Thompson’s piano accompaniment and Alice Ernest’s leading were, “Take the Name of Jesus with You� and “Sweet Hour of Prayer.� Brother DeWayne Goodgine chose for his text the rejoicing and warning verses of I Thessalonians 5. He reminded his listeners that we do have hope in a changing world for we have hope in Christ. Verses 11 and 15 indicate that we should build up each other and just simply to be



kind to each other and to everyone else. Three basic instructions he shared: rejoice in God; pray without ceasing for our family, our church family and our government and give thanks in everything. Jesus is Coming Soon

Milan mayor and wife win first Dancing with GC Stars competition BY CRYSTAL BURNS “Stars� from all over the county gathered last Thursday night to compete in the first Dancing with the Stars event benefiting the Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse in Gibson County. Milan mayor Chris Crider and wife Terri took home the coveted mirror ball trophy, beating out four other couples. Terri is an attorney with Flippin, Atkins & Crider in Humboldt. “No one was more surprised that we won,� Mayor Crider said. The evening included interviews with the dancers similar to those done on the popular ABC reality show “Dancing with the Stars,� which pairs celebrities with professional dancers. In their interviews, the Criders confessed to putting together their routine only two days prior to the competition. Mike Snider, Director of the Gibson County Carl Perkins

Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse, didn’t buy the couple’s story. “Baloney,� he joked. “Their dance routine was off the hook. It was original and really funny. I was impressed.� Judges were Lydia Hubble, owner of Special Occasion in Milan, Bruce Niven,American Ordnance, and Chad Lowery, Chief of Police in Medina. “It was so much fun,� Snider said. “I’m ready to do it again.� Snider danced with Joy Alexa, who also represented the Carl Perkins Center. Their routine included the twist, disco music, and the wobble. Shelby Kee, Director of the Greater Gibson County Chamber of Commerce, danced with Peyton Harper, a local farmer. The duo recreated John Travolta’s and Olivia Newton-John’s roles in “Grease.� “I thought I was watching the movie,� Snider said. Humboldt head football coach Dan Bland and wife

WINNERS - Milan Mayor Chris Crider and wife Terri, an attorney with Flippin, Atkins & Crider in Humboldt, won the first Gibson County Dancing with the Stars competition last Thursday night. The event raised money for the Gibson County Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse.

Martha, a retired educator, wowed the crowd with their more traditional ballroom dance. “Their dance was so natural,� Snider said. “They just look like they dance every weekend.� Drs. Jason and Lyndsey Powers, owners of Total Wellness Chiropractic in Milan, had to withdraw from the competition, so Snider recruited Blake Dunn and Christina Grimm, winners of the Obion County Dancing with the Stars competition, to round out the cast. “Our goal was for everybody to have a great night of family entertainment,� Snider said. “That’s the most fun I’ve had in many years.� He expects next year’s event to be even bigger. As the reigning champions, Mayor and Ms. Crider, will have the chance to defend their crown. More couples will be added, and Snider said volunteers rushed him last Thursday to sign up for 2013. “You better get your tickets early,� he said. Julie Burke, Director of the Milan Chamber of Commerce, and Sherri McCarter, Director of the Humboldt Chamber, served as emcees. County Mayor Tom Witherspoon was scheduled to host with Burke but had a scheduling conflict. “Julie and Sherri did a great job,� Snider said. He also thanked Dean Pfefferle for the video clips, Rob Harris for audio, and Mary Cole for setup and decorations. The event was held at Milan Middle School, and Snider thanked the school staff for their hospitality. All proceeds go to the Gibson County Carl Perkins Center to provide services for children in Gibson County. For more information on the services or to volunteer for next year’s Gibson County Dancing with the Stars, contact Mike Snider at 731855-4844.

.d given this land to His people and now because of their sin, the land would become sick and throw out those who had indeed turned their hearts to God. (Amos 8:7-8, 4:13, 5:8) The evil ones would be left behind. We remember those in Egypt. When they turned to god, God sent them out with great power. The Egyptians marveled as the Red Sea opened for God’s people but closed on her enemies. God’s plan was always to do well to them, but now they’ve turned away from God and thereby they’ve lost His protection. God is reminding them of what He can and will do. God had saved them from Egypt. (Amos 9:7) It’s as if God is asking, “Do you remember me?� “Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be

Josiah humbled himself before his constituents and his peers. Now Josiah had heard by the Word of God that his country would suffer destruction because of their evils. Josiah is king and he’s made a turn for his kingdom and his country. Josiah sends word to a woman of God. In short he was asking, “What about now? What will God say now.

church to worship, and not to be entertained. Brother Atnipps’ Sunday morning sermon was, “What motivates people to worship idols?� taken from Acts 17. There were several visitors Sunday morning. Meeka Paschall Warren came with her new baby, Mallory, and we are always glad to have Brother Johnny Meadows’ grandsons, Connor and Ace. We learned that Brother Mark Paschall’s son, Justin and his wife are expecting another child. Brother Atnipp’s Sunday night sermon was “The Power of Forgiveness� taken from Matthew 7:5 and Ephesians 4:32.

Hello to all the readers from the members of Lowrance Chapel Church of Christ. We’ve had such a wonderful, balmy Lord’s Day, very windy, but little sun. As I am writing this, I can hear the rain coming down, perhaps a harbinger of this week’s weather. I got lots of “Happy birthdays� and hugs from my students last Tuesday. They never forget from year to year. They are so smart, sometimes I wonder who’s teaching whom. My daughter gave me a new movie and I watched it with her and my mom. I attended a fabulous performance of “Dracula� at GCHS on Friday with a friend and then the basketball jamboree at Peabody High School on Saturday night. Our boys won over West Carroll 52-14. They displayed great sportsmanship and teamwork. There is lots of great talent at GCHS! We were happy to have Brother Joe Atnipp as our speaker on Sunday. Our Sunday school class was on “Acceptable Worship.� Sometimes we need to be reminded that we go to
