Kentucky fugitive nabbed in Gibson Co. Gibson County Sheriff Chuck Arnold and several county deputies assisted U.S. Marshal officers and Jackson Police last week in capturing Donald Gallimore Jr., a fugitive who was wanted in Western Kentucky on federal charges of probation violation. Gallimore was apprehended near Skullbone Store Wednesday April 24, according to Sheriff Arnold and U.S. Marshal Jeff Holt, who provided media releases. Gallimore, a member of the Aryan Brotherhood Gang, supposedly fled Kentucky shortly after an arrest warrant was issued in August 2012. Gallimore was convicted of witness intimidation in 2006, according to a media release. “Acting on a tip on Wednesday, marshals went to 27 Shades Bridge Rd. in Bradford to look for Gallimore,” said Sheriff Arnold. “As they approached the residence, Gallimore ran out the back door and into a wooded area. see page 3

Insight & Opinion There’s a song in my head

Clayburn Peeples reports: So I’m strolling through Hobby Lobby last Saturday morning, waiting while my wife and younger daughters finish their shopping, when I walk by a group of paintings, one of which depicts what appears to be stars in a deep blue twilight sky. “Starry, starry night,” I say to myself, thinking of the painting, Starry Night, by Vincent van Gogh, but saying, in my mind, “starry, starry night,” ah la the Don McLean song, “Vincent (Starry Night).” And just that quickly, the lyrics, snippets of them anyway, began boring into my mind; Starry, starry night, Paint your palette blue and grey, At first it was a pleasant experience, calling up words from a song I once liked a lot, trying to remember what I could of the lyrics. I’ve read that though most of us sing off key, we remember songs pretty much like

they’re supposed to sound. And that’s what I was doing, but I didn’t know many of the words, and I conflated the first two verses and skipped from “Paint your palette blue and grey” to; Swirling clouds in violet haze, Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue. And then I jumped over several notes to; And when no hope was left in sight, On that starry, starry night, You took your life as lovers often do, But not remembering what came next, I looped back to the beginning, “Starry, starry night,” at which time I gave up, but the song wouldn’t quit. The tune and phrase, “starry, starry night,” along with the next line, kept bouncing around in my head, and for the next few minutes there was nothing I could do to stop it. I was suffering

from a spontaneous episode of “involuntary musical imagery.” In other words, I couldn’t get the darned song out of my head. It was “stuck” there, hence another name for the phenomenon, “stuck song syndrome.” Now people who study such things (and believe it or not, there are serious people who do) say that 98% of us have encountered such an experience as I had Saturday, and that 90% of us have had one that lasted more than an hour. Mine did not. After about 15 minutes, my wife had completed her shopping, and as we were walking back to the car, just telling her what had happened to me seemed to make it disappear. But it got me to thinking; where do those song snippets (people who study them refer to them by the hideous term, “earworms”) come from, and why are they sometimes so hard to get rid of? Well, the answer appears to be, “Nobody really knows.” No one can say with certainty why some songs, or parts of them, seem to stick in certain people’s minds for amazingly long periods of time. They do know a few things about them however. They know, for example, that they generally inflict people when they are in a positive emotional state and while they are participating

in a non-intellectual activity like walking, just as I was doing Saturday morning. They also know that this experience happens more to women than men, and that it also inflicts slightly neurotic people more often than others, and no, I’m not suggesting any sort of correlation there. My “earworm” left my head after a few minutes, but for some people they can last hours, even days. Consequently, people try all sorts of things to get rid of them, usually beginning with thought suppression. “Stop doing that!” you say to your mind, but of course, that makes you think of it even more. It’s really, really difficult to will yourself not to think about something.

Singing the entire song is sometimes suggested, but first of all, that doesn’t work for most people, and second, usually you know only part of the songs that infect your mind anyway. Some people report modest success with replacing the offending lyrics with those from another song, but they often get the new song hung up in their auditory cortex as well. Another method, and the one that worked for me, even though I didn’t know it was a tactic at the time, is to tell someone else what is going on in your head. That sometimes seems to drive the earworm out. But those university researchers who study this

Dyer board discusses from page 1 Manhole Repair bid to CTR Utility Rehab LLC in the amount of $22,000. This expense will be paid from the Capital Improvement Fund and will not affect the operational budget of the Water and Sewer Fund. The motion was approved with all in favor. Mayor Younger informed the board that one of the two motors in the Elm Street lift station quit working last week. A single motor will not carry the flow of sewage that this manhole handles. Younger stated that this was a repair that had to be made immediately to insure proper flow for this section of town. Reed made a motion to approve P.O. 7157 to Higdon Electric in the amount of $748.72 for repair to the Elm Street lift station. The motion was approved. Mayor Younger informed the board that the east screw pump at the wastewater plant quit working last week. The bearings and the drive coupler became inoperable. This was a repair that had to be made immediately to insure influent flow into the wastewater plant. A motion was made by Reed seconded to approve P.O. 7158 to Newbern Machine and Welding in the amount of $1,687.67 for repair to the east screw pump at the wastewater plant. The motion was approved. In the Finance Committee Report, City Recorder Jason Griggs passed out specifications for resurfacing the tennis courts at the park. A motion was made by Barron to let bids for resurfacing the tennis courts. The motion was approved. In the Water and Sewer Department Report, William Caton stated that he needed to purchase a barrel of polymer and liners for the dewatering sludge box. Reed made a motion to authorize $1,800 for the purchase of polymer and liners for the sludge box. The motion was approved.

In the Water and Sewer Committee Report, Williamson informed the board that Ronald Franks will be looking at the gear reducers on the aerators at the sewer plant. Williamson also stated that TML insurance agents and the city’s engineer will be looking at the new pump station that was installed on Washington Street. In the Beautification Committee Report, Baker stated that she and Steven Tucker had recently inventoried the flowerpots that are traditionally placed around town. Some of the older pots will not be able to be used this year. The board wants to see if Ronald Giger will help plant the flowers and place them around town. Nathan Reed made a motion to authorize $1,476 to install a 200 amp electric service at the old city hall property. The motion carried. Voting in favor were Baker, Reed, Barron, Gilliland, Gray, and Williamson. Oliver voted no. A motion was made by Reed to authorize $400 for the purchase of an electric pole from Gibson EMC to be placed on the old city hall property. The motion carried. Voting in favor were Baker, Reed, Barron, Gilliland, Gray, and Williamson. Oliver voted against the motion. The board also gave a positive consensus to allow the Street Department to install a new water meter at the old city hall property. On Friday, Griggs explained to the TCR that the property on which the electric pole will be installed is the old city hall property behind the barber shop and State Farm Insurance. The Dyer Beautification committee wants to do something to the property to better its aesthetic value and generally do something to make that area more appealing. Griggs also stated that he did not know what the committee’s ideas are to improve that property. In the Landfill Committee

phenomenon say the very best way to remove them is to simply get busy with something that engages your mind. Build a birdhouse, watch a ball game or read a book. Working out anagrams (rearranging letters of a word to form a different word) works best of all, they say. Of course, you could also try turning on the radio in hopes of hearing a new song that will chase the old one out of your head, but if you do, you might want to avoid oldies’ stations. Otherwise, you might find yourself humming snippets of Mongo Jerry’s “In the Summertime” or “Hey Jude” for the rest of the day. Now that, would be really annoying.

Humboldt career center from page 1 A spokesperson in Humboldt said Gibson Countians could also go to the Jackson career center when seeking jobs or unemployment. The Humboldt office will close June 18, said Ed Joyner. Nine out of 13 career centers in West Tennessee will close. Since 2004, career centers were operating at a deficit and more than $32 million in one-time federal funding was used to supplement the program.

When that funding ran out, the governor included $5 million of state funding in last year’s budget to give the department an opportunity to work on a plan to run the career centers efficiently and effectively moving forward. “Citizens across the state will continue to have convenient access to career center services,� Phillips said. “We understand the importance of providing support to job seekers and take that responsibility seriously. This plan allows us to rightsize the program

and continue services to all 95 counties.� There were three main factors in determining service relocations: (1) career center locations required by law, 2) alignment with the governor’s jobs camps, and (3) most effective use of remaining federal funds to serve as many Tennesseans as possible. The department carefully evaluated these issues to make sure Tennesseans continue to have convenient access to job services near their communities.

Jason can still make the yoyo work! During children’s time, he played with it. He asked the children what made it work, there were a lot of answers; one said it was gravity and force most said a string. Without the string it is no good. He explained that is like our relationship with God, our string with the Lord is prayer, without prayer we don’t do well. Bro.

We all have a part in God’s plan. The mission message in 12 words is; God loves me, God loves everyone, not everyone knows, I must tell! Sunday morning our Minister of Music, Bro. Terry Owens dedicated his song to our Ministers of Students who are leaving. Bro. Nathan and Candice Joyce have done a mighty work for the Lord and for our children. He sang “Thank you for giving to the Lord.� Bro. Corey preached on ‘Confident Christian Living’ from I John 4:7-12 and Galatians 2:12. Three steps to assure us of this are 1. Be established in the truth, do we love and pray for others? 2. Have we experienced His testimony? Has He given us His Spirit? 3. We are to examine God’s grace, examine ourselves; we are to be like Him in this world. Love made complete is; know Him, love him, follow Him, serve Him.

From the Preacher’s Desk By Jerry Bell

The tongue and its use: Man has within his body a member that may be a blessing or a curse. Its power for good cannot be comprehended, and its ability to destroy cannot be measured. We, of course, are speaking of the tongue. A man once instructed his servant to go to the market and get him some good food. The servant, in obedience to the command, brought his master some tongues. At another time the master told his servant to bring him some bad food. Again the servant brought some tongues. The master asked the servant why he brought tongues both times. The servant replied: “From the tongue both good and evil come to man: if it is good, there is nothing better; if bad, there is nothing worse.� Speech Is the Test of Character. We use a barometer to measure atmospheric pressure, a thermometer to measure temperature, a speedometer to measure velocity, but the oldest measuring instrument of speech is the tongue; it reveals the depths of one’s soul and measures his character. The power of speech is distinctly human. It is a fundamental mark of the superiority of man over the lower animal world. The quality of one’s speech, therefore, indicates the width of the chasm which separates him from the brute creation. The Tongue Is a Heart Indicator. Doctors often look at a person’s tongue to determine his physical condition. One’s

tongue also tells much with regard to one’s spiritual condition. Note these words of Jesus: O generation of vipers how can ye being evil, speak good things? “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But those things which proceed out of the mouth came from the heart; and they defile the man. (Matthew 12:34-35; 15:18) Though one artfully plays the role of a hypocrite, one’s speech will betray one as certainly as did Peter’s at the trial of Christ where he denied Jesus three times and those standing by him said: “Surely you are also one of them, for your “speech betrays you.� (Matthew 26:73.) When a person always manages to get around to telling some dirty joke, his “heart indicator� is standing on “evil.� When a man always manages to make some “funny,� yet indecent remarks about other people, his tongue certainly reveals the condition of his heart. James said, “Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.� (James 1:9) A man once said to his son: “In talking use as much caution as a carpenter; measure twice and saw once.� Note: Excerpts taken from an article by Bob S. Reynolds in the “Minister’s Monthly� Sept. 1966.

Our children had the benefit of a lesson from LaVera Winters concerning the uniform of a Christian. She used 1 Thes. 5:8 to show that the children needed to show they were God’s children by “having put on the breastplate of faith and love and the helmet of the hope of salvation.� Our acolytes this week were Taylor and Hailey Murray.

Pharmacy & Your Health Kicking the Nicotine Habit Smoking tobacco is a highly addictive habit. This is due to the nicotine content in cigarettes, which triggers a release of chemicals in the brain that results in a pleasant and relaxing feeling for the smoker. However, smoking tobacco is also well known for its negative effects on the body, notably related to causing cancer, lung disease, heart attacks and strokes. Tobacco smoke is also harmful to those who do not smoke but are constantly exposed (secondhand-smoke). Counseling and attending support groups have been helpful for some smokers. Medications are also available to assist with smoking cessation. Products that aid with smoking cessation can either contain nicotine or be nicotine-free. Nicotine products provide the user with certain amounts of nicotine that decrease in a stepwise manner over time to help wean the person off the chemical. Some over-the-counter nicotine products include chewing gum or lozenges (Nicorette) and patches (Nicoderm CQ, Habitrol). Nicotine oral inhalers and nasal sprays (Nicotrol) are available as prescriptions. Nicotine-free smoking cessation aids are prescription drugs and include varenicline (Chantix) and bupropion (Zyban). These drugs interfere with processes in the brain that are linked to nicotine cravings.

Kenton News By Cindy Lamar Ronnie Lamar was airlifted to Nashville’s Vanderbilt Hospital recently where he was hospitalized for the second time in April. After further tests and consults with his team of doctors, Ronnie was told his options for treatment for his heart were exhausted and he will need a transplant. The remainder of his hospitalization involved him being evaluated for eligibility for a transplant. Mrs. Helen Sanderson celebrated her 94th birthday last week! She was treated to a birthday gathering at Scott’s Dairy Bar in Kenton. It was attended by many family members and friends who love her. Happy birthday Mrs. Helen! Last Saturday evening Tim and Sharon Lamar and Trevor and Kennedy braved the threat of flash floods to drive from Millington to Kenton to visit his brother and sister-in-law Ronnie and Cindy Lamar. In spite

of the rain they enjoyed the evening together and especially enjoyed the antics of Ronnie and Cindy’s 22month old grandson, Pierce who was staying the night with “Nana and Poppy.� Food for thought: Life’s ups and downs and ins and outs often catch us by surprise. It matters not who you are, they come into all our lives. They come in all shapes and sizes, they stay varied lengths of time. But through them all we’re not alone, for God is always on our side.

The David Johnson Chorus presents songs of the common man “Sometimes things can be expressed in a song that can’t be talked about out loud.� This is opening comment made by David Johnson, Director of the David Johnson Chorus, in describing the chorus’ concert theme this spring. “I’m calling it ‘Songs of the Common Man,’� Johnson explains. “The songs come from three different eras of social stress in our country: the 1950’s and 60’s; the time of westward movement into the Appalachians by our forefathers; and the time of slavery.� The chorus will be singing a number of familiar folksongs from the fifties and sixties. Some people called them “campfire songs� because they were tunes that were easily sung and lyrics easily remembered among groups of teenagers.

There will be songs made famous by Peter, Paul and Mary, Pete Seeger, The Brothers Four, The Limelighters, and The Christie Minstrels. Many in the audience will remember Puff the Magic Dragon, This Land is Your Land, Michael Row the Boat Ashore, If I Had a Hammer and the haunting Where Have All the Flowers Gone? And in the spirit of authenticity, the only accompaniment the chorus will use will be various members of the group playing guitars. When immigrants from Scotland and Ireland moved westward toward the Appalachians they introduced a style of singing that is known as Sacred Harp, also called fa-sol-la singing because emphasis was placed on learning the names of the

shape notes. This singing was most recently featured in the movie adaptation of the book “Cold Mountain.� The harmonies are haunting and the subject matter heart breaking due to the difficult lives they experienced. The last section of the concert will be of Negro Spirituals. This genre has long been a hallmark of DJC. Slaves brought tunes with them from Africa and infused them with words that reflected not only the hardships of their lives but also of the wonderful hope they had in the hereafter, a place of joy and peace. The chorus has been busy since their return from the World Choir Games in Cincinnati last July where they achieved three silver awards. The David Johnson Chorus’ general manager, Gail Dyer, stated, “The memory of

performing before judges and choruses from around the world was a wonderful experience and one we won’t forget. Being able to share our music with those closer to home is equally exciting.� The choral group has a busy Spring schedule and excited about performing again at First Baptist in Kenton according to Dyer. DJC can be heard during their concert at the First Baptist Church in Kenton on Sunday evening, May 5, at 6 p.m. For more info. on the concert or other DJC events, contact DJC general manager, Gail Dyer, at 731-514-0167, or visit their website, www. The chorus can also be followed throughout their season on Facebook.

DJC TO PERFORM AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH - The David Johnson Chorus will be performing at the First Baptist Church in Kenton Sunday, May 5 at 6 p.m. The concert this spring is ‘The Songs of the Common Man.’

BOOKWORMS CELEBRATE EARTH DAY - Happy Earth Day!!! On April 24th, the Bookworms recognized Earth Day, celebrated on April 22, 2013, with a special story time. The Bookworms enjoyed the book Recycled! by Jillian Powell, which follows a class as they create a recycle bin. To their surprise, when they come back the next day, all of their recycable materials have already been taken to be used for other purposes; so, their mission to recycle more starts. After the story the Bookworms enjoyed a special snack of “rocks and worms� (vanilla waffers and gummie worms). Then each child got to plant their own flower seeds in a cup. After everyone was through, we ended story time with the hokey pokey. Join us on May 15th for our final story time until next school year! THose attending were (left to right) Tyler, Kennedy, Kiera, Aspen, Jayci, Grey, Sam, Leigharyn, Parker, Jacob, and Cameron.

We ask that you continue to remember those on our prayer list including James White, Jean Harris, Max Betts, Carlene Meadows, and Carlene’s sister Ann. We want to extend our congratulations to Caitlin Walker for graduating UT Martin Nursing School. In studying the doctrine of pre-millennialism (a doctrine in which this term rapture derives its name from), we have taken a look at what some of the basic points or tenets are of that doctrine in our worship services these past few weeks. While there are many branches of this doctrine, the basic idea is that pre-millennialism is the theology that Christ will return before (at this time will be the rapture) His thousand year reign in Jerusalem. The idea is that Christ came to this earth to establish an earthly kingdom but once his own people rejected him, he had to establish a backup plan so He created the church as some sort of substitution. To try and support this doctrine, many people look to the book of Revelation or Matthew Chapter 24. So let’s take a quick look at some of these things concerning this. We must understand that: 1. Christ did not fail. To say that it was part of the divine plan for Christ to establish his kingdom when he came unto the world by the virgin birth, but he could not accomplish that plan because of his

unexpected rejection by the Jews, is saying Christ failed. In fact, this was known before the very foundation of the world (1 Pet 1:18-20; Acts 2:22-23). The prophets spoke about it, and Peter said Christ fulfilled it (Act 3:1718) 2. The church was eternally purposed (Ephesians 3:9-12). If the church was eternally purposed then why do some say he established it only as a substitution or an afterthought? The church and the kingdom are the same. The Jews were expecting a glorious physical kingdom where they could submit to the ultimate king; yet, Christ established a spiritual kingdom, which is the church (Mt: 16:13-19). 3. Jesus said he fulfilled all things (Luke 24:44). When considering Old Testament prophecies, we must understand the time element. If a prophecy did not come to pass when the prophet said it would come to pass, then he

is deemed a false prophet (Deut. 18:22). Christ said He fulfilled all that the prophets, the psalms, and the law said about him. Their prophecy had to have already been fulfilled, or they were false prophets. If the kingdom prophecies were not fulfilled as they were supposed to be at Christ’s first coming but were instead postponed, then what does that make Daniel, Isaiah, and all the other prophets? Over the next several week, we will be discussing this, and if you at any time have a question then feel free to contact me at brandonclennet@gmail. com. Have a great week!

William Judkins “Billy� Webb, 79, made his transition on April 23, 2013 surrounded by loved ones. His wife of 58 years, Addiesue Webb, knocked it out of the park caring for him the final days of his life. Funeral services were Friday, April 26, 2013, at First Baptist Church. Dr. Noel Schoonmaker officiated. Burial was in Evergreen Cemetery. Mr. Webb was born in Rutherford and was the son of the late Judkins and Lorene McDaniel Webb. He was also preceded in death by his sister Elizabeth Sue Webb. He anchored not only a family but also a community through his integrity, visionary spirit, wisdom and dynamic approach to life. An avid entrepreneur, Mr. Webb’s successes included developing motels, condominiums, restaurants, theme parks, and flea markets in Florida, North Carolina and Alabama. Mr. Webb gained much satisfaction in mentoring young business people in developing their ideas and passions. He was a long-standing member of First Baptist Church. Mr. Webb is survived by his four children -- Greg Webb and his wife Maureen of British Columbia, Jill WebbHill and her husband John of Nashville, Ginger Webb Demonbreun and her husband Danny of Murfreesboro, Kristi Webb and her partner Patti of Nashville -- and seven grandchildren: Thomas, Anna Morgan, and Judd Demonbreun, Jonas and Liza Hill, and Liam and Logan Webb, along with a loving sister-in-law, Nina Jane Manley of Memphis. The family requested memorial gifts be made to First Baptist Church or Room In The Inn in memory of Mr. Webb. Family will serve as pallbearers. Condolences may be made to

The king posed the question to the wise man (Esther 1:!4). What would you answer? 1-by looking at one’s decision with history directly and indirectly involved. “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come� 1 Corinthians 10:11 (KJV). 2-By prayer to the almighty God Creator and believing He hears. “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him� 1 John 5:14-15(KJV). 3-by diligent study in the Word of God. “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth� 2 Timothy 2:15KJV). 4-By being still and waiting humbly to hear from God. “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth� Psalms

46:10(KJV). 5-By seeking the will of God alone. “and be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God� Romans 12:2(KJV). 6-By keeping the constitution of God as the constitution of decisions the way God intended. “My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments; for length of days, and long life and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart� Proverbs 3:13(KJV). 7-by accepting persecution as comfirmation of your salvation and beware when everyone loves you. 8-“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution/ But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived� 2 Timothy 3:12-13(KJV). Who else is there with the king?

The Grapevine By Sarah Skinner We had a very good service at St. Paul Sunday morning beginning with Sunday school. Rev. Timothy White delivered the message. His topic “It’s already prepared� was found in Mark 6:30-38. The youth department did the devotion and provided the music. Immediately after the service, several of St. Paul members traveled to Mt. Zion worship center for their “Family and Friends Day� service. We were served a delicious meal upon our arrival, and had wonderful fellowship with friends and relatives. I was really happy

to see and converse with Mr. and Mrs. Edward Booker and Marshall Booker who lives around Memphis. They still attend their home church regularly. Pastor Willie Pounds delivered the message. His topic “Uniting family and friends through fellowship of the church’ was found in Proverbs 17:17. The mass choir provided the music. Cathy Bailey and Joyce Walker of Milan attended the Grand Parade and fish fry in Paris Friday. They visited Latasha Walker and family in Nashville last Sunday. God bless and have a good week.

GC Lady Pioneers win 8 to 7 over South Gibson BY LORI CATHEY On Monday, Gibson County played a doubleheader at West Carroll. Lady Pioneers lost the first game but won the second. In the first game the Lady Pioneers started the game by making several errors and giving West Carroll 6 runs in the first inning. Gibson County couldn’t get the bats going until the fifth inning when Grace Jewell reached first base and Sydney Inman followed with a single. Jewell scored on a hit to the outfield by Macie Cole. The next batter, Lynsey Crews hit another single that scored two more runs. The final score was 8 to 3. The Lady Pioneers got off to another rough start by allowing West Carroll to score 1 run in the first inning and 4 more in the second. However, in the bottom of the second inning, Sydney Inman led off with a double and later scored when Claire Whitworth hit a double. The Lady Pioneers added another run in the 3rd when Macie Cole drew a leadoff walk and later scored on a sacrifice fly from Chay Poynor. West Carroll added two more runs in the 4th to make the score 7 to 2 going into the last inning. In the bottom of the 5th with one

out, the Lady Pioneer’s offense came alive. A pitch hit freshman Christian Prater. Then Cole, Lynsey Crews, Poynor, and Inman all singled to pull the Lady Pioneers within one run. Sophomore Hannah Hutchison got a sacrifice hit that scored the tying run. In the extra inning, pitcher Rebecca Lee got West Carroll to make three quick ground outs and then started the Lady Pioneers at bat with a single to the outfield. After loading the bases, pinch runner Justice Bardwell scored the winning run on a single by Crews. Gibson County defeated West Carroll 8 to 7. Lynsey Crews received the game ball for being 2 for 4 with 1 run scored and 2 RBIs. On Tuesday, the Lady Pioneers softball team held their annual senior night before the varsity game against Milan. The Lady Pioneers had one senior on the team this year, Brooke Walker. Brooke has played for three years. “Brooke has worked hard while she has been a Lady Pioneer and exemplifies what we expect from our student athletes. She will be missed next year,” said head coach Chris Lownsdale . She plans to attend

Dyersburg State next year and major in n u r s i n g . Te a m m a t e s honored Brooke on the third baseline with a rose and plaque. The Lady Pioneers played Milan in their first home game.

Tennessee Tractor supports Discovery Park of America

FOX FAMILY - A mother fox and her litter of six kits have moved into town at Kenton. The furry family lives under an out-building at the home of Gordon and Phyllis Crenshaw.

Family of foxes moves to town BY GORDON CRENSHAW My wife Phyllis and I grew up in the tri-city area. She was from Kenton and I was from Dyer. We had the opportunity to move back in November 2012. We moved to the Gibson County section of Kenton on the very edge of town and the house we live in has several storage buildings in the yard. We have been enjoying all the varieties

of birds and squirrels in the area, but had a pleasant surprise on April 9, 2013. Phyllis noticed our greyhound (Amps) was staring at something in the southeast corner of the yard. My wife called for me and we looked out and there was a mother fox with four kits around the shed that’s probably 60 – 70 feet from our house. By the time I

had retrieved my camera from the trunk of my car, they had run back to safety under the building but came out again later on, and I was able to get a few photos. They are very entertaining to watch, and we start to worry if we do not see them at least once a day. At first, we thought it was a mom and four kits, but we have since discovered there are six kits. It’s funny watching Amps staring at them and they stare back at him. It’s like they are trying to figure what kind of creature that is staring at them.

Tennessee Tractor will be a major sponsor at Discovery Park of America providing John Deere mowers, tractors, and utility vehicles as well as service to the 50-acre complex. Discovery Park has a critical need for topof-the-line landscaping care. The site had three unique gardens, European, Japanese, and American, as well as extensive landscaping in and around six areas on the grounds. The grounds includes 6,000 azaleas as well as thousands of trees, shrubs, and flowers in addition to extensive “grassed areas” that will be used for events and activities. Discovery Park’s goal is to have grounds that are similar to a botanic garden and are equally impressive to the unique exhibit building (Discovery Center) and its exhibits. Jim Rippy, CEO of Discovery Park, said that he was delighted to have Tennessee Tractor as a sponsor. “We greatly

appreciate the support that Tennessee Tractor will provide in this very important area. I can’t think of a better way to care for these extraordinary grounds than with John Deere equipment and maintenance service from Tennessee Tractor. Their new facility in Union City is just across the street from Discovery Park so we’re even more delighted that our neighbor is helping create this extraordinary place.” J. Adamson, General Manager of Tennessee Tractor, said that he was very impressed with the plans for Discovery Park. After touring the site a few months ago and seeing the plans for the grounds, it was clear to me that maintaining the grounds in a worldclass manner was a top priority for Discovery Park. Tennessee Tractor wanted to help and supplying John Deere equipment is a way that we can both help and showcase our equipment. I expect that most of our

homeowner and farmer customers will be regular visitors at Discovery Park and we’re delighted that our equipment will help maintain the grounds and create a spectacular visitor experience as they enjoy the grounds. Tennessee Tractor offers new and used John Deere equipment for home lawn and garden as well as large agriculture at nine locations throughout West Tennessee: Alamo, Brownsville, Dyersburg, Jackson, Martin, Paris, Trenton, and Union City. Tennessee Tractor opened its first dealership in Alamo, TN in 1998 and has expanded to serve farmers and homeowners throughout West Tennessee. Discovery Park of America, Inc. will be a $100 million educational complex with exhibits and interactive experiences in the areas of nature, science, technology, history, and art. Discovery Park is expected to open in October 2013.

Homefront to heartland BY PHILIP W. SHELBY, UT EXTENSION GIBSON COUNTY DIRECTOR Women in agriculture and the vital roles they play will be the topic of the “Homefront to Heartland” Workshops this spring across Tennessee. These workshops are for any Tennessee woman on the farm, on the job, or in the home who wants to learn more about reducing stress, obtaining funding and a better understanding of labor regulations. A workshop is scheduled for May 4, 2013, Jackson, at the UT West Tennessee Research and Education Center, 605 Airways Blvd. Jackson, TN 38301-3201from 8:30 to 4:30. “Women will leave empowered with new knowledge and skills to better manage the challenges they face as they strike a balance between work and family life,” says Chris Sneed, a UT Extension Agent in Blount County, and one of the organizers of the workshops. “Topics are

broad enough to impact the entire industry, but specific enough to equip each person with information to change her personal and professional life,” Sneed says. Among the conference topics, there’s the fun and interactive session known as the “Real Colors Personality Instrument.” Here people improve communication skills and get a better understanding of human behavior by completing a series of questions. This provides insight into your own personality, as well as the personalities of those who live and work around you. Other topics include labor management, a session designed to explain some of the complex relevant labor laws and corresponding record-keeping requirements. Tools and tips for effective communication with employees, family and others will also be discussed. A luncheon discussion is also scheduled, titled “Life, Liability and Farm

–Understanding your Insurance,” hosted by Tennessee Farm Bureau Insurance. Here participants will learn if they have enough – or perhaps too much – insurance. Other conference topics include information about both federal and private funding opportunities. “Women are very commonly the bookkeeper and human resource agent on the farm,” says Jane Starnes, a Research Associate with UT Agricultural Economics. “I hope these workshops provide them with useful and practical information on payroll records, labor regulations and labor communications that will give them the confidence in these roles on the farm,” she said. UT Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment. For further information and/ or registration you can contact UT Extension Homefront to Heartland at 865-200-4527 or www.
