DYER, TENNESSEE

Top Recognition

Dyer board discusses needed repairs Dyer Mayor Walton Thompson announced in a Dyer city board meeting on January 23 that Franks Construction Company would begin work on the city sewer plant improvements on January 30. Also relating to water and sewer, city water supervisor Randy Gregory talked to the board regarding the city’s sanitation survey. The water tank on Ashley Street has been a finding on the last several surveys. Gregory showed pictures from the survey regarding the interior of the tank. There is one of the cathode covers that is not properly sealed. Gregory contacted George Cottrell about repairing this problem. Cottrell gave an informal estimate of $600 to repair the opening in the tank. Gregory advised that Cottrell will not know the extent of the repair until he climbs on to the top of the tank. The board approved a measure to allow George Cottrell to repair the opening in the Ashley Street water tank at a price of $600. Gregory also advised that water and sewer personnel were having issues with debris in the check valves at the West State Steel lift station. Cloth material is making the check valves stick. There have also been issues with large amounts of grease in this lift station. Gregory stated that this lift station needed to be pumped out. The board voted to allow McGregor Services to pump out the West State Steel lift station. see page 3

Gibson - North Relay For Life is All American award winner BY WILLIAM G. MCFARLAND Gibson - North Relay for Life was awarded the All American Award at the American Cancer Society Super Saturday held at Union University February 4. One of the most honored/top awards, this All American Award is presented each year to a relay community that shows growth, retention, relay branding, diversity, and leadership throughout the year and the actual Relay. Gibson - North met all those areas and was recognized for its work in making the event an all night event, providing leadership to all those involved, its sponsorships, its survivor promotions, and its overall organization for the year. Twenty-one Gibson - North team members were on hand for the celebration’s once a year event held before Super Sunday where relay teams from all over West Tennessee gather to celebrate. Members attended training sessions and enjoyed a luncheon/ awards ceremony. And, when speaking of awards, the rewards of seeing all of those who were survivors, those who worked as caregivers, and the results of hard work were actually the main awards given. Statistics showed how that cancer research had helped cut cancer deaths, survivor stories brought applause, and a pep rally atmosphere encouraged happiness. Thus, the Super Saturday event. The All American Award was only one of the awards that went to the Gibson - North. The team throughout 2011 was on an incline of upward movement. In 2010, teams working for relay numbered six; in 2011 teams numbered 19. Gibson - North hoped to have a 1,000 luminaries; there were 1,500 on the field; Gibson - North hoped to raise $40,000; almost $60,000 was raised. As a result of meeting their $40,000 goal, the Relay was one of seven relays in West Tennessee who was recognized with a Meeting Your Goal Award. Another top award went to Gibson - North’s Buni Wendt. Buni, a member of the Bradford School Team, was presented the Division - Wide Best Practice Award for her team’s work in making the

Rutherford to repair city streets The Town of Rutherford Board of Mayor and Alderpersons met on January 16 for their regualr monthly meeting. Street repairs, police department budget problems and ‘dead’ water line were among the topics discussed. Mayor Keith Cardwell called the meeting to order. Cardwell asked if there were any additions or corrections to the previous minutes from the December 19, regular board meeting and the December 22, special called meeting. The board approved the minutes as written. Don Engelhardt was not present for the fiscal year 2010-2011audit so the board moved on to department reports. In the fire department report, Fire Chief Bob Blankenship reported of two drills and two fire calls in December. In the police department report, Police Chief Mike Hensley reported 167 calls in December. Hensley handed each board member a schedule for March and see page 3

trophies for the Gibson - North Relay. Buni was commended for “making these creative trophies and saving money that her Relay would have had to pay for them.� A backbone of the Gibson - North Relay since its first year has been Mrs. Ann Abbott. ‘Miss’ Ann has been the only treasurer Gibson - North has known. She has been the money person forever and she has counted every penny that has been raised for relay. For her dedication to saving lives, ‘Miss’ Ann was named a Most Valuable Person to Gibson ˆ North and to the American Cancer Society. She was commended for her service “above and beyond the call of duty.� Essential to the success of any program is publicity. The Tri-City Reporter was named a Lighthouse Award - Best Print Supporter - Rural Market Winner. Cindy East, Tri-City Reporter editor, was on hand to accept the award. The paper was commended for its exceptional promotional support within its communities and for helping to share the lifesaving message of the American Cancer Society. The Dyer School Relay for Life Team received the $10,000 Plus Team Award. Twenty-eight teams raised $10,000 plus totaling more than $560,000 in the 26 Relays held. The Dyer School team raised $15,515.87. Only six teams raised more than they did. Overall, the Super Saturday was a great day for the Gibson - North Relay for Life. A final recognition that went to Gibson - North, Trenton, Humboldt/Gibson, and Milan/Medina Relays combined was a per capita recognition. Based on the total money raised by these relays divided into the total population of Gibson County, the Gibson County Relays were 15th in the state at $3.76 per person. Gibson County received state and national prominence for the dollars raised. The West Tennessee market had more counties in the top 20 than any other regional office in Tennessee. Seven other counties were in this group with rankings from eighteenth to second.

AWARD WINNERS - Gibson - North Relay for Life received other awards in addition to the All American Award, held by Relay Chair William G. McFarland and the per capita recognition.

Insight & Opinion

Guys, don’t be a stupid cupid

Clayburn Peeples reports: Sorry ladies, but this column is for men, so all you guys out there, listen up. And remember, I’m not trying to tell you what to do; I’m just, as always, trying to be helpful. If you aren’t already aware of this, know it now! Valentine’s Day, with its attendant necessity for you to pick out the perfect gift for your loved one, is only days away. And ever since Charles, the duke of Orleans, imprisoned at the time in the Tower of London, sent the first Valentine card to his wife in 1415, men have scratched their heads in befuddlement over what to do about the holiday. Thus, the annual dilemma over picking the perfect Valentine gift. While scholars may argue over the origins of the day, they pretty much agree that choosing the wrong Valentine gift for your inamorata is a recipe for disaster. Those days when you could get by with picking up a card and a heartshaped Whitman’s Sampler at Wal-Mart after work on the 13th of February are gone with the wind. So much so that the National Retail Federation just reported that Americans will spend a whopping 17.6 billion dollars (And no, they’re not talking about a government program here.) on tokens of love this month, and that the average shopper will spend $126 on Valentine gifts this year. Mostly, they’ll be buying the traditional gifts, jewelry, candy, flowers and dinner,

can be terribly problematic. The main problem is the size issue. Nine out of ten guys don’t know anything about women’s sizes, or what size their significant other is, and guessing wrong is guaranteed to cause difficulty. If you buy her something too large, she will accuse you of thinking she is fat. Also, if you buy her something too small, she will accuse you of thinking she’s too fat. And then, if you’re lucky enough to buy the right size, guess what. Unless she’s a Victoria’s Secret model, it’s not going to look the same on her as it does on the store mannequin, and if she doesn’t think it flatters her, beware. Better yet, choose another gift. I saw an ad last week suggesting membership in a health club as the perfect Valentine gift. Ha! Trust me on this. No woman wants exercise equipment, or anything else that reminds her of her weight, on Valentine’s Day. I don’t care what her New Year’s resolution was, and even if she knocks over the lamps in the den every time she turns around, don’t get her a treadmill or ThighMaster for Valentine’s Day. And needless to say, she will not feel warm and fuzzy about a trial membership to Jenny Craig either. Look elsewhere. How about a slow cooker or an electric skillet, you ask. Get serious. No woman wants a kitchen tool or gadget on the most romantic day of the

but what are you going to do? What would be the perfect gift for your special one? What, exactly, is your wife or sweetheart craving this Valentine’s Day? Well, no man alive can answer that question with certainty, but if you ask women, and they ought to know, you can’t go wrong with jewelry. But when they say “jewelry” they are not talking about mood rings and Monet; they mean the real stuff, made of gold and gemstones. So if you can’t spring for something real, it’s better to go for something else. But what? Most men don’t seem to have a clue here. Or a care. In a recent survey, 61% of men said they had given no thought at all as to what Valentine gift to give their significant others, and 81% of wives and sweethearts said they thought they had received that exact gift. And they were not happy about it. Now I can’t tell you what to get, but let me mention a few places you don’t want to go. Although just about every merchant in America is telling you his or her product would be the perfect Valentine gift, don’t believe it unless you really, really know the woman you’re buying for. And let’s face it, no man does. So listen to me, and avoid those Valentine’s Day disasters. First of all, don’t buy her lingerie. I know, at first blush (no pun intended) it sounds like an intimate and romantic gift, but in reality, it

year, so don’t get her one, lest your romantic intentions turn to toast. Same thing with cleaning products, no matter how cute they are. No ostrich feather dusters or brooms or mops, and take note; when she said she wanted a new vacuum cleaner, she didn’t mean she wanted one on Valentine’s Day. What about a nice bottle of wine? Maybe. The right bottle of wine or champagne might set just the right romantic mood, but she’s going to be cool to the point of frosty if you show up with a bottle of Jack Daniels or a six pack of Bud Light. The same goes for power tools. We guys think they’re awesome, but they don’t. Again, trust me. She will not

worst gift of all is nothing. Do you plan to break up with her? If so, this is the perfect gift; otherwise, come up with something. Some psychologists say no man ever really forgets Valentine’s Day, that those who claim to have done so are really harboring some underlying issue such as anger or resentment, so unless you want to be psychoanalyzed negatively by your loved one, don’t forget. And if you just can’t think outside the box, of chocolates, that is, then go for that. After all, you know what they say; “It’s the thought that counts.” Unfortunately, what they are talking about on Valentine’s Day is what she thinks about your gift. As I’ve said before, let’s be careful out there guys.

Opinion

We contend that Gibson Co. government is indeed broken In the spring of 2010 the County Commission voted to double our wheel tax rates. A petition was circulated to force the wheel tax to a referendum vote. The voter of Gibson County rarely has the opportunity to speak, but speak they did. To my amazement 70% of Gibson County voters voted the wheel tax down. It was a clear message to county government that the people didn’t want tax increases considering our economic hardship. The County Commission thenraisedcountypropertytaxes 30%. Some commissioners actually seemed angry that the voters had defied them. The first motion was to raise property taxes by more than 50%. Fourteen County commissioners knowingly and willfully voted against the people who they were elected to represent. The commissioners apparently forgot that they were elected to represent the people. They proved without a doubt that in Gibson County we don’t have government of the people, by the people, and for the people. We have government of the commissioners, by the commissioners, and for the commissioners. Either a 100% increase in wheel tax, or a 30% increase in property tax is outrageous and abusive to people struggling to get by in this economy. Indeed, don’t be misled One benefit of establishing a new charter is to allow the people of Gibson County to somewhat restrict the growth in the cost of County Government. The most recent budget passed exceeded expected revenue by approximately 1.4 million dollars even after the 30% property tax increase. Deficit budgets are irresponsible. One of two things is most definitely in our future, a sizable cut in the budget or another tax increase. Mayor Witherspoon told us what a great deal we have on county taxes and Mr. Cunningham told us what a great deal we have on school taxes but the fact remains that out of 21 counties in West Tennessee, Gibson County has the third highest average property tax rate. More about growth of County Government. It is a very simple mathematical fact that when tax rates are increased the cost of government is increased in relation to the private sector. It means a greater percent of each individual’s earnings go to fund government. When tax rates are held constant, a healthy balance is maintained

consider a power hammer or a laser level to be a romantic gift. And for you last minute shoppers, don’t pick up a trinket at a convenience store. Any gift purchased at a gas station is a bad gift. It says you forgot about the day, and by implication, her. Give her something you got at 7-Eleven and you’ll end up paying far, far more than your original purchase price for it. If you’re looking for something really, really different, the Bronx Zoo is offering to name one of its cockroaches after your loved one for only twenty-five bucks. I’m pretty sure though, that this would not be a good plan. Maybe after your former sweetheart. But everybody agrees, the

between the size of our county government and the private sector. The debate is not about cutting taxes or services, emergency or otherwise. The need is to stop the relentless growth in the cost of county government such as has happened over the last few years. A new County Charter and the benefits In industrial management we have what is called continuous improvement. It is simply continuously looking for ways to improve and become more efficient. Largely that is the purpose of drafting a new charter. The new charter must be drafted with a means of amending the charter as time goes along just as our U.S. and State Constitutions do. This will allow us to respond and change our government to meet future challenges. Following is a review of the stated efforts of “Gibson County Citizens for Responsible Government.” A public vote required to raise property tax This will allow the voters of Gibson County to somewhat restrict the growth in cost of County Government but only where property taxes are concerned. There is no restriction proposed on wheel tax. Wheel tax can; however, be petitioned to referendum vote as they can be now. Under current law, sales tax can only be changed by a referendum vote. Term limits on County Commissioners Term limits are a positive change. Term limits prevents long term embedded corruption in government. This is not a declaration that county commissioners are corrupt, but there is corruption in all levels of government and term limits is a way of reducing it. Reasonable term limits are common sense. On line monthly check register This is simply transparency in government. Posting a PDF file of the monthly check register on the Gibson County Government web-site would be almost costless. If we question where our tax money is going, we can look and see. Requirements for a balanced budget A balanced budget is simply being fiscally responsible. Deficit budgets are a way of increasing spending and dealing with how to pay for it later. When later comes, a tax increase is unavoidable. Reducing the number of Commissioners Shelby County has 11 commissioners. Knox County has 13 commissioners. Gibson County has 25

commissioners. Reducing the number of commissioners will save money and in our view provide better representation. We can be much more careful about who we elect and keep better track of how they vote. If we do elect tyrants rather than representatives we’ll have fewer tyrants. On line County budget Any citizen with internet services would be able to see how his tax money is being spent. This is giving the public a means of holding County Government accountable. Co. Commission meetings held in the evening hours. Citizens should be able to attend county commission meetings if they have concerns or interest in government. At the last meeting the Mayor pointed out to me what a great turnout there was that Monday morning. Excluding the students there that day, a good guess was that 19 out of 20 in attendance were on the County payroll. There may not be as many county employees there in the evening but the working people will have a chance to participate in their County Government. The voter has the last word on the new charter If the candidates who make up “Gibson County Citizens for Responsible Government” are elected to the Charter Commission there will be a new government charter offered to the voters of Gibson County that will include these stated efforts. The voters of Gibson County will have the last word on adopting or not adopting the new charter. Why is there such objection from county government to this effort? The majority of the commissioners have made it obvious that the will of the people is a problem for them. In review As Gibson County Citizens we can do better. It is our responsibility as citizens to be involved in Government and to hold our elected officials accountable. Obvious evidence of our need to improve is our regular failures of State Audits. I hear it said that it is less expensive to pay the fines than to put the management controls in place that the state recommends. The fines are likely a small cost compared to the actual cost of not having adequate management controls. To cling so tightly to status quo isn’t in Gibson County’s best interest. Status quo is failing and no amount of Nance or Gibson County Patriot bashing by commissioners or others will change that fact. David Nance Trenton Tn.

King wins grocery merchandising award Associated Wholesale Grocers, a grocer owned Coop that supplies Food Rite stores, awards excellence in grocery merchandising. Tonya King, the store manager of Food Rite in Dyer was just awarded the ‘Excellence in Grocery Merchandising’ by Associated Wholesale

Grocers. This award is based on Tonya’s skills in merchandising. “Tonya is diligently looking for the right items at the right price to display for our customers,” said store owner Joey Hays. “She knows products, what’s hot and what is not and is always ahead of the

game on having her store merchandised with the right merchandise. I could not be prouder of her. She is a local girl that works hard and takes pride in the job she does.” Tonya was chosen out of over 400 stores that Associated Wholesale Grocers supplies out of the Memphis Division.

Dyer board discusses repairs from page 1 Gregory informed the board that during the recent storms, the telephone line to the water plant and city shop had been torn down. Gregory stated that this needed to be repaired due to the water plant alarms working through the phone lines. In the Fire Committee report, Alderman Nathan Reed relayed to the board that the fire department was testing a backup paging system and the system is working fine. The purchase of this system will cost $150.This system records the audio page from Central Control and sends the page as a text message to the firefighters’ phones. Fire Chief Roger Worrell stated that he had asked for a purchase order to buy turnout gear. There is currently a $400 reduction in the price and he would like to take advantage of the savings. This purchase is a budgeted item. The board approved a measure to purchase two sets of turnout

gear at a price not to exceed $2,500. In the Water and Sewer committee report, Thompson advised the board that approximately a ten-foot section of the sewer main would have to be replaced around the intersection of Washington Street and Lee Street. Roger Orgain, a State Inspector, met with city personnel regarding this opening in the sewer line. The board agreed that this repair needs to be made immediately. Thompson asked Attorney Jennifer Deen to relay her findings to the board regarding her research on the sidewalks on Elm Street. Deen informed the board that she had a copy of all of the property deeds in question. She advised that the legal descriptions did not convey who owns the sidewalks; the city or the property owners. Deen contacted Reasons Construction and received an estimate of the costs related to platting these deeds to gain the knowledge

of exactly who owns the sidewalks. Deen advised that it would cost approximately $100 for the platting costs. A motion was made by alderman Robert Johnson and seconded by alderperson Judy Baker to allow Reasons Construction to plat the deeds in question at a cost of $100. The board approved the measure. Deen also informed the board that she and City Recorder Jason Griggs had been working together to get the city in compliance with TML’s audit recommendations. Efforts are being made to check the validity and status of employees’ driver’s licenses and Deen is working on crafting employee performance evaluations. Under new business, a motion was made by Alderman Nathan Reed and seconded by Johnson to pass on first reading Ordinance 2012-204, an ordinance creating a Special Revenue Fund for Solid Waste. The board approved the ordinance.

Rutherford to repair city from page 1 proposed hiring a full time officer as this would help cut down on overtime. Alderman Bob White stated the police budget was over budget. Alderperson Sandy Comstock asked Hensley what put them so over budget. Hensley stated that the over budget was due to shifts not being covered and overlapping, with not enough officers to work. In the water and sewer report, Eddie Watkins stated that a meter at the water plant needed to be recalibrated. In order to do so, it would have to be sent off and the city would need a back up meter. The cost of the new meter would be approximately $1650 and to recalibrate the current meter approximately $980. The board approved for Watkins to do whichever one becomes necessary. Watkins also advised that over 60 percent of residential water meters would need to be replaced due to over a million gallons of water being run through them. He also stated that 14 points were deducted on the city’s Sanitary Survey due to ‘dead’ lines. White made a motion to include the water line repair in the next budget year but received no second to the motion. Watkins stated he was approached by two citizens concerning work that was to be handled by the city and almost two years have passed with nothing being done. The first citizen was Jerry Faulkner, of 617 McKnight Street. The city cut his driveway to repair and replace water lines and it was to be paved back. Cardwell asked Watkins to get quotes on the repairs. The second citizen was Holmes Stine of 102 King Street. He asked the city to clean out ditches for better drainage on Fain and Morris Streets. Cardwell stated for the city crew to go ahead and clean out the ditches. In the street report, Police Chief Hensley advised there are 21 streets that need some type of repair. Watkins advised the board that a paving group out of Milan, PRI, would be in the city on Thursday, January 19, to get

ADVERTISE!

quotes for repairing streets in need of repair. Under new business brought before the board, Cardwell advised that the property on 218 South Trenton Street now belongs to the city. Gibson County deeded over the property to the city for $12. Comstock asked what could be done about the house at 110 South Trenton Street. It needs to be torn

down before it falls down. White advised he would talk with the owners of the property. Alderperson Kathy Keith advised of a sewage oder at the school that can be smelled outside and inside the gym. After much discussion on the issue, Randy Gregory and Watkins will check out and see what the options are to correct the problem.

Lowrance Chapel By Jerry Bell

Mr. and Mrs. James Dunagan

Dunagans to celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary James D. Dunagan and Terry Smith Dunagan are celebrating 50 years of marriage. They will be celebrating at Yorkville Park Community Building Sunday February 19, 2012, from 2 to 4 p.m. The couple wed February 17, 1962, at First Baptist Church, Huntingdon, TN by Rev. Jonas Stewart. They have three children,

Jimmy H. Dunagan and Vickie, Vicki D. Huey and Amos and Michele D. Spence and John. They have ten grandchildren: Crystal, Samantha, Felicia, Dylan, Megan, Blake, Chase, Lauren, Grace, and Wyatt. They have three greatgrandchildren Lacie, Whitlee and Kele. They request no gifts.

Kenton News by Cindy Lamar It was a “family divided� last Sunday night for the Lamar family when three generations gathered at the home of Ronnie and Cindy to view the Super Bowl game. With part of the family cheering on the New York Giants and others pulling for the New England Patriots lots of good-natured ribbing went on throughout the evening. In the end though, the New York Giants were victorious, claiming the title of 2012 Super Bowl champions. Ronnie Lamar spent the day last week with his grandfather, Eurby Sanders of Gibson. They put flowers on his grandmother’s grave before going to Reelfoot Lake where they enjoyed a delicious fish dinner together. Food for thought: What

if you didn’t follow your dream or wish upon that star. What if you didn’t follow your heart whether it take you near or far. What if you left words unsaid that you needed to convey. Then your life and others too could be changed in a regrettable way. On our prayer list this week, please remember Regina Miller, Gabby Mathiason, Terry Sweat, David Stephenson, Liam Sims, Jesse and Elaine Davidson, Bobby and Carol Primrose, Doris and Sam Weatherly, Elmer and Virginia Williams, Paul Lee Williams, Sally Copeland, Jimmy Simmons, Eurby Sanders, Gwen Rickards, Paul Hughes, PeeWee Wyrick, Vickie Robinson, Francis Plunkett, Easton Hopper, and Henry and Cathy Herane.

Pharmacy & Your Health Motion Sickness Treatments Motion sickness is characterized by dizziness and nausea caused by movement, commonly occurring on a boat or in a car. Other signs and symptoms of motion sickness may include feeling warm, sweating, and vomiting. Symptoms can also reappear after the offending motion stops, such as returning to land after being on a boat. Natural neurotransmitter chemicals that are involved in producing motion sickness include norepinephrine, histamine, and acetylcholine. Motion sickness affects different persons to varying degrees. Those who experience motion sickness may consider looking out the window to create a match between the sensation of motion and the visual experience. Lying down when possible, such as on a boat, may help decrease symptoms of motion sickness. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl), dimehydriate (Dramamine), and meclizine (Bonine, Antivert) are antihistamine medications available over-the-counter for treatment of motion sickness. Scopolamine (Transderm Scop) is a patch that is available with a prescription that may be applied to the skin for 3 days to prevent motion sickness. Promethazine (Promethegan) is an antidopaminergic medication available with a prescription for the prevention and treatment of motion sickness.

All enjoyed another Lord’s Day of fellowship, giving praise to God, and remembering the death, burial, and resurrection of His Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Let us continue to pray for James White and Billie Paschall who are in the nursing home. It was a joy to have two brothers leading our singing at Sunday evening services. Max and Dakota Betts, grandsons of Bobbie Betts did an excellent job leading us in singing praises to our Lord. Max has just returned home from the hospital. He is doing so much better and we hope and pray that he will continue to improve. Virginia Smith asked for our prayers, as she was to have surgery on her knee this past Tuesday. We are happy to announce that we will host the 2nd monthly County Singing of the Churches of Christ this Sunday, February 12, 2012, at 2:30 p.m. Everyone is invited. Have you ever pondered the thought of “Total commitment?� I will use the illustration I heard years ago. A hen and a pig came upon a church building and read the advertised sermon on the billboard out front, which read, “What can we do to help the poor?� Immediately the hen suggested they feed them bacon and eggs. The pig thought for a moment and said, “There is one thing wrong with feeding bacon eggs to the poor. For you, it only requires a contribution, but for me it requires total commitment!� Many today are not willing to b e totally committed to the Lord because it demands too much of them. The apostle Paul said in Romans 8:18, “The sufferings of this present time, are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us!� Total commitment is worth every

effort! What is commitment? It is defined as a pledge to fulfill, an obligation, to obligate ourselves to a cause. It also means responsibility, a pledge, promise, vow, resolution and determination. To be totally committed, we must realize we have a personal commitment. We cannot blame others for our own sins. Job tells us in 19:4 that he couldn’t blame his sin on anyone else. He alone was responsible. Some offer excuses for lack of total commitment. Moses offered excuses to God when God told him and get His people out of Egypt. Moses said, “Who am I to go? ‌What shall I say unto them‌I am not an eloquent speaker. (Exodus 3;11, 13, 4:10) The prophet Jeremiah said, “I cannot speak; for I am a child.â€? But the Lord said unto me, “Say not, I am a child; for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.â€? (Jeremiah 1:6-7) Are we using these old worn out excuses today? Others might say that total commitment is “too difficult, I just don’t se the need, I have a business to run, the Master is too hard, I don’t have the time, I don’t have the social position, etc., etc. We are to be committed to God, the truth, each other, our family, to purity and modesty, and to souls. These are the scriptures respectfully: (Matthew 22:37-38, Jeremiah 6:16-17, Jude 3, Titus 2:1, Matthew 7:12, Matthew 22:39, Ephesians 5:22-25, 6:4, Philippians 4:8, James 1:27, Matthew 5:8, Matthew 9:36, 28:19-20) Do we have total commitment to the Lord and His requirements for us? Too many seem to be “just trying to get by.â€? God does not want our second best, He wants our very best! Think about your commitment to God this very day?

Golden Agers By Alice Ernest Wednesday February I marked the first day of meetings of the Golden Agers for February. (Duh) Pastor of Dyer FBC offered thanks to God for the bountiful spread of food and everyone ate well. Led by Kenny McEwen, prayers were offered up to the Lord for comfort for the families of Doug Shoaf and George Davis. Kenny also led prayer for healing for Rita Hicks, Ed Pratt, Ann Powell, and the mother of Michael Barnett, Dyer FBC Minister of Youth and Children. Nothing was extraordinary about the meeting, at first, except the bloated attendance number of 27, which included guests Jeri Bailey and Patsy Reed. But then “they� came in -- ready to do music, and to banter with each other and to slip in some comedic diversions. That would be the duo of Justin Little and Nathan Reed, who shared a morning of delightful music and quips.

Their boss Tony Jones of Jones Telecommunications graciously let them take time from their workday for us to hear Justin’s amazing virtuosity on the piano and Nathan’s equally, enjoyable vocals. Their songs included “Till the Storm Passes Over,� “I Want to See Jesus,� “Hide Thy Me,� “In My Heart There Rings a Melody of Love,� “There’s Something About That Name,� and “O, What a Savior.� Justin also played “If That isn’t Love,� “His Eye is on the Sparrow,� and remarkable variations of “Amazing Grace.� By request the two gave their audience enjoyment with “He keeps me Singing,� “I’ll Fly Away,� “I’ll Meet You in the Morning,� and “The Church in the Wildwood,� requested by Nathan’s Aunt Patsy Reed. Peaceful pleasure permeated the audience of golden agers and guests the morning of February 1.

Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Davidson

Davidsons to celebrate their 25th Wedding Anniversary The family of Clarence and Eva Davidson invites everyone to come to New Bethlehem Baptist Church February 12, 2012, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in the fellowship hall to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.

They were married February 14, 1987, at the 1st Baptist Church in Kenton. Their children are Mark and Alisa Davidson, Shad and Courtney Davidson, Kenneth Coday, Teresa and Greg Parnell, and Ava and Lynn Finch.

North Union By Connie Cooper I’m sure you all enjoyed the day that the Lord provided us last Sunday. I know that it was the climax of the football season and all Giants fans are happy things went the way they did. But every day is a day to rejoice and find gladness because God is in His heaven and we are the apples of His eye. Jesus does love you, the Bible tells us so. The children’s sermon provided by Kenny Joyce this week also declared a message of caring. Kenny told the children of God’s providential hand in an incident that provided him opportunity to assist a family who were down on their luck. They were out of gas and Kenny just happened to have a gas can with him and was able to go and get gas and get the people back on the road. God had him in the right place at the right time. Linda Carmoney provided the special music by singing a song about living unforgiven. The song, “Unforgiven,� told of the needless shame and pain Christians endure because of their unwillingness to repent and confess their sins to God. Remember the promise, “If we will confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all

unrighteousness.� 1 John 1:9. Also according to James 4:10 if we “humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord, He will lift you up.� I could use a bit of a pick me up today; how about you? Bro. Mark’s morning message was entitled, “The Four Quarters of Life.� The question was asked, “are you in the game or on the bench� as far as the Lord’s work goes? Sunday evening service was held at the Harris home prior to the Super Bowl fellowship. Everyone had a good time and plenty of good food. We again had a few folks out with illness and injuries. Sandy Whitley filled in for the ailing William Sims. Sandy always does a great job leading the congregation in worship through music. Linda and I stopped by to see Nerine Cowan in her new home. We had an enjoyable visit and Linda sang for her. Nerine asked me to keep everyone reminded that she still is praying for all of us and if we have prayer requests to let her know so she can pray. Her number is a 7423288. Also, if you need information on Griefshare, call me at 697-2966. Have a great week and I’ll see you in church on Sunday.

The Grapevine We had a very spiritual service at St. Paul Sunday morning. It appeared that almost everyone came to worship our Savior, Jesus Christ. The women’s department had charge of the wonderful devotion. I was the worship leader. Rev. Michele Skinner delivered the message. Her topic was “Don’t forget to Thank Him” that was found in Luke 17:15-19. She informed us we should thank Him from our hearts and not just our moths, and when we do, we will praise Him. The Mass Choir provided the music. The special selection was, “I’m glad to be in service one more time,” led by Ronald Banks. Vickie Wynn united with

We are still praying for their safe return. Sis. Tenthy Pounds was not us Sunday; her sister-inlaw, Mrs. Willie B. Warren, was ill and she stayed near her. We had several young visitors Sunday including Douglas Simpson of St. Louis. We are always glad to have Gary Banks of Ft. Campbell worship with us.

Sunday School for Shut-Ins When you’re ready, please read Colossians 3:15. Let God rule and reign in every facet of your life. Looking at that verse again: Suppose you want to start a ministry or a business with a ministry. Sounds good? Has God set up the start or was it all your idea? Are you sure? “Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” (James 1:16-17) Okay. Now you’ve decided that the ministry was God’s idea. Where do we go from here? What did Jesus say? “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you: not as the world gives do I give

Our prayer list includes William Edmonds, L. M. Bardwell, Rev. Henry Banks, John Mitchell, John Mays, Josie Johnson, Martha Simpson, Mary L. Mays, Geraldine Grice, Cathy Bailey, Donavan Banks, and the bereaved families. God bless and have a good week.

to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27) These words by themselves almost sound like a blanket of permission to start anything good any time. Are they? Can we know? Is it God’s timing? Is it His time to begin? “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering: hearing with one another, and forgiving one another. If anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful.”

(Colossians 3:12-15) Only his peace is needed. Do we have his peace about starting now? Who is leading? When we were saved, the Holy Spirit of God came to dwell and remain in each of us forever. Jesus explained that to his disciples before it happened (John 14: 16-18) Jesus told us where to look and search for discernment and guidance. “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when he, the spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak and he will tell you things to come.” (John 16-12-13) Have we surrendered it all to God?

Peter and John were at the temple when a crippled man asked for money. They had no money but gave him something better. In the name of Christ, he was told to rise up and walk and he did. We are directed to hold our hope using God’s word to all. A large group of youth and children enjoyed the Super Bowl party at J.T. and Jenny McKinney’s home Sunday evening. Brother Corey’s evening message continued the study on Acts 3rd chapter. He went from “a miracle to a message.� We must give Jesus all the credit just as Peter and John did. We studied the Old Testament promises concerning the coming Savior, even back to Abraham. How does this affect our lives today? Next Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. there will be a church wide breakfast. Pray for those having surgery this week, our student search committee and all those on our prayer list and friends in the nursing home. I went to dinner the other day; it was a bit pricey.

Sports & Education Lady Pioneers defeat Westview in district play BY LORI CATHEY In a hard-fought match on Senior Night, the Lady Pioneers, with a furious comeback in the fourth quarter, picked up a 52-46 district win over Martin Westview. With 30 seconds left in the first quarter, Khadijah Alexander and Sarah Beth Mullins made back to back 3-pointers, pulling Gibson County within one point of a tie. GC’s junior Jasmine Whittemore stole the ball, drove the length of the court and passed it to Courtney Haynes for a 3-foot jump shot at the buzzer to give Gibson County a 13-12 lead at the end of the first quarter. Both teams then traded baskets in the second quarter to go to the locker room tied 26 all. In the third quarter, Westview had an 8-0 run racing out to an 8-point lead, 40-32, going into the fourth quarter. In between quarters, Gibson County Head coach Michael Hart asked his seniors if this was the way they wanted to finish their

last home game. He told them to go out and attack on offense and play aggressive defense. Gibson County fought into the lead behind a strong defense, especially from Alexander who had 2 steals and forced 2 more that all led to points. The Lady Pioneers started the quarter off with a drive to the basket from Brianna Fetters to start a 14-0 run for Gibson County. Whittemore, with a 3-pointer at the top of the key, and Chelsea Joyce, with back-to-back drives to the basket gave Gibson County a 41-40 lead with 3:15 left in the quarter. The Lady Pioneers held on late thanks to free throws from Haynes who was 7 of 8 and Mullins who was 2 of 2 to win the district contest 52-46. ‘’I was just being aggressive, trying to get the ball,’’ Lady Pioneer Khadijah Alexander said. ‘’Defense is my job and I didn’t want to lose my last home game.” Gibson County shot 10 of 22 from the field, 7 of 11 from 3-point range and was 11 of 12 from the free throw

line. Leading Gibson County was Courtney Haynes with 15 points and 3 assists and

had 7 of 8 free throws in the last quarter. Khadijah Alexander finished with 12 points, 3 assists and 4 steals.

Yorkville School very busy with Olweus Anti-Bullying Program BY KATRINA JETTON OLWEUS COORDINATOR YORKVILLE SCHOOL Yorkville School has been very busy over the past several months with our One Tribe Olweus Anti-Bullying Program. Students continue to meet weekly with their classroom teachers and discuss issues or problems affecting students today. They are learning about problem solving, community involvement, teamwork and team building, respect, and most of all how to prevent

bullying and how others are affected by our actions. Each month, students are chosen by teachers and staff for the One Tribe Wall. The students’ names are placed on a large number one for positive behavior and showing good character. Monthly drawings are held for the overall winner and students receive a prize provided by the school’s Olweus program. Recently, the Olweus program sponsored several contests to spotlight

community awareness. In November, students collected over 750 cans of nonperishable food to donate to a county agency. For the month of December, the Yorkville Olweus program teamed up with Wound Care Resources to help provide Christmas presents for families in our communities. We had an overwhelming response for both and would like to say thank you to all who helped with such worthy causes.

BY JENNIFER MCCAIG-COX Imagine the excitement of children gathering to place their names in a hat for a chance to win an 8foot stocking full of goodies for all ages. This is a dream that City Lumber Company of Dyer makes come true every year with their annual Christmas stocking give-a-way. The anticipation built for the whole month of December as children or their parents placed names for the drawing. Then, December 20th arrived, the day of the drawing. Owner Scott Wright reached into the box and drew out the winning name of Elijah Hassell. Elijah, a student at Dyer School, was over joyed as were his three siblings. They knew there would be something in the stocking for each of them. As the children prepared to leave the store with their treasures, all four had to help carry the stocking, because it was larger than each of them was tall; it

had to be carried over their heads to the family car. City Lumber would like to thank all that participated in this annual tradition. “It is always a joy to

Kenton School is bully free The Olweus Bullying program is a new program being implemented at Kenton School this year. We are making a commitment to be bully free by teaching students school rules to

prevent bullying. We are very excited about the new program and the impact it will have on our students. We are committed to teaching students these behaviors while they

are young so that they will carry over to their adolescent years. We teach students that the bystanders can play a huge role in preventing bullying. We encourage families to let us

know if their child comes home and tells of any bullying incidents at school. Together, we can support a safe and caring school environment that teaches children how to take care of each other. At Kenton School we are teaching these rules: 1. We will not bully others. 2. We will try to help students who are bullied. 3.We will include students who are left out. 4. If I know someone is being bullied, I will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.

Gibson Co. Memorial Library Story Time

Gibson County Memorial Library Book Worms

The Gibson County Memorial Library hosted the Bookworms for story time on Wednesday, February 1, 2012. The book of the day was “Aliens Love Underpants” by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. The children enjoyed the story along with the colorful illustrations. The Bookworms decorated an alien in underpants during craft time with crayons and stickers. After that the children helped an alien find some underpants through a maze worksheet.

The children had a snack of apples and bananas before ending story time with the “Hokey Pokey.” The next Bookworm Story Time is on Wednesday, February 8th at 10am in the Children’s room. Story

time is open to children lap-sit to pre-school of all abilities accompanied by an adult. The Gibson County Memorial Library is located at 303 South High Street in Trenton, TN. Call (731) 8551991 for more information.

GCVAA Quilt Trail moves along BY ROYCE HARRIS The Gibson County Quilt Trail is still moving along. One recent addition to the trail is West Kentucky and Tennessee Telecommunications Corp. in Yorkville. WK and T has a new board called ‘Card Tricks.’ This board can be seen on their building at 2 Nebo Yorkville Rd. Employees Susan Walker and Becky Scott weathered the chill in their Christmas sweaters to have their photo taken by the board. Bill and Jan Burks have the GCVAA quilt board on the front side of their barn. Jan said, “We just wanted to be on the quilt trail.” This beautiful red and white design is called ‘Star of Bethlehem.’ This board can be viewed at 106 Dedmon Rd. in Dyer. On the back side of their barn there is a beautiful 8X8 quilt square painted some

time ago by their daughterin-law and installed by their son. It can be seen from their dining room in their home. John and Sandra Newman were very particular about the design they chose for their quilt square. John and Sandra are native Canadians, so the discussion began with the beautiful maple leaf flag of Canada and evolved into a maple leaf of fall colors called ‘MultiColor Leaf.’ It is an original design not yet found in quilt books. John and Sandra live on 37 Esquire White Rd. in Trenton. The latest quilt square installed in Trenton can be found on Cotton’s Cafe located at 200 W. Eaton St. This pattern is called ‘TriColor Star’ and was installed by Sam Peden and Eddie Harris. On January 1, the day the board was installed, West Kentucky and

TennesseeTelephone Coop. sent two young men to do a story for their publication. Steve Smith and Andy Johns will be featuring the GCVAA Quilt Trail in their publication. They had lunch with Royce Harris, Eddie

Harris, and Sam Peden and then went outside and took photos of the installation. The D. C. Taylor building also has a new look. The quilt square pattern on this building is called ‘Primary Octagon.’

BURKS BARN - Bill and Jan Burks of Dyer had the quilt square called ‘Star of Bethlehem’ installed on their barn located on Dedmon Road.

COTTON’S CAFE - Cotton’s Cafe employees Judy Oliver, Catrina Lopez, Jenny Blitchington, Judy Carpenter, and Tracy Huffman, with Royce Harris from the Gibson County Visual Arts Assc. Quilt Trail pose with their new quilt square called ‘Tri-Color Star.’

Dyer Jr. High Eagles advance in state tournament BY COACH JERRY ROBERTSON & HELEN HOLT The Dyer Jr. High Eagles began play in the TNT State Tournament on Friday, February 3, 2012 in Springfield, TN. Their first game was against North Elementary from Grundy County. The Eagles took an early 11-6 lead in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Dyer began to pick up offensively behind scoring from Pierce Holt, Mac Hicks, and Jay Robertson. The first half ended with the Eagles flying to a 32-12 lead. In the second half, Peyton Holt, Octavious Owens, and Zack Brooks caught fire as the Eagles took a 53-21 lead going into the fourth quarter. The second half saw the Eagles turning up their pressure defense and outscoring North Elementary 27-6. “We came to play tonight

and it showed as the game progressed. I’m proud of my team and we’ve come together as a team at the right time,” said Dyer coach Jerry Robertson. The final score was 5927. Scoring was as follows: Octavious Owens 10, Jay Robertson 9, Mac Hicks 8, Peyton Holt, 7, Pierce Holt 7, Zack Brooks 7, Hunter Cooper 4, Malike Owens 3, Tyner Hughes 2, and Tyreek Campbell 2.

The Eagles exploded in the first quarter and jumped out to a 15-5 lead at the end of the first quarter. Peyton Holt brought his “A” game with him for

the night, scoring five of Dyer’s first fifteen points. Holt continued to torch the nets as the Eagles raced to a 27-18 halftime lead. Peyton connected on three big three pointers in the first half. “I just felt it tonight. I’m normally a passer first, but tonight I had my shot going.” The Eagles did have some problems from Big Sandy. Their shooting guard was hot and the Eagles made some second half adjustments.
