Larry Davidson

Davidson is candidate for mayor of Rutherford Larry Davidson is announcing his intention to seek the office of mayor of Rutherford, Tennessee. “People everywhere have lost confidence and trust in all areas of government. I want to help bring that confidence and trust back to the governing body of Rutherford,� said Davidson. “We can do that by working hard to reduce expenses, keep taxes and utilities low, encourage growth 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. He is married to the former Twyla Thomason and they have one son, Keith, who see page 3

READY TO RIDE - Toy Run organizers Beverly Laughlin and Edd Daniels lead bikers as they pull out of the parking lot for the 90-mile toy run held last Saturday. The toy run was held to benefit the Dyer Station Celebration Giving Tree that buys gifts for families in need at Christmas. (See page 11 for more photos)

1st Annual Toy Run raises $1,000 for DSC Giving Tree The 1st Annual Dyer Station Celebration Toy Run was held Saturday, June 2nd raising over $1,000. Forty-two bikes were registered for the 90-mile ride that benefited the DSC Giving Tree at Christmas. Each rider gave a minimum donation of $10 or a toy valued at $10. Each year during Christmas, the Giving Tree is set up at Food Rite in Dyer to help families in need. Cards containing a child’s clothing size and a desired toy are hung on the tree. People take the cards, buy the gifts and then bring them back to the store. The Dyer Station committee then distributes the gifts. However, some tags and gifts are never returned to the store. Committee member Judy Baker had the idea to hold a toy run and approached Beverly Laughlin about getting it organized. Laughlin, now a member of the committee,

worked with her fiancĂŠ Edd Daniels to get the ride started. They began planning the event back in February. “I had hoped to get 50 riders but 42 is good for the first year,â€? said Laughlin. The Gibson County Sheriff’s Department provided an escort led by Captain Roger Gray with several other deputies helping control intersections. Kenny Slaughter, of J&J Cycle Salvage, was named grand marshal of the toy run. Laughlin welcomed the riders and thanked everyone involved in making the toy run a success. The ride began and ended at the Cumberland Presbyterian manse on College Street. The DSC committee had grilled hot dogs and hamburgers for the riders on their return. There were also door prizes given away and a 50/50 drawing.

Dyer Station seeks arts, crafts exhibitors The 2012 Dyer Station Celebration planning committee would like to invite area arts and crafts exhibitors to participate in the annual ‘DSC Arts and Crafts in the Park.’ The 2012 arts and crafts event is scheduled for Wednesday, July 4th from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and is held in conjunction with numerous other day-long patriotic activities. A 10foot space is provided for exhibitors. To participate please contact Jimmy and Janet West at 395 Parkview Drive, Dyer, TN 38330 or phone (731) 692-2326.

2012 DYER STATION CELEBRATION T-SHIRTS - The 2012 Dyer Station Celebration t-shirts have arrived. They can be purchased at Personal Touch Salon and State Farm Insurance, both on Main Street. Displaying the t-shirts are Vanessa Grey of Personal Touch, Cady Griffin, 2012 Dyer Station Celebration hostess princess, Michele Whitaker, also of Personal Touch and Ken Pullias of State Farm, Children’s sizes are $10 each and adult sizes sell for $12 each. The profit from the sale of these t-shirts helps defray the costs of the Dyer Station Celebration activities. The committee appreciates your support of our hometown festival and hopes to see these patriotic shirts all over Dyer in the next few weeks. There are a limited number of t-shirts available, so get one while you can. God bless our veterans and God bless America!

USPS has new strategy to keep small post offices Offices affected include Rutherford, Yorkville, Kenton The U.S. Postal Service announced a new strategy recently that could keep the nation’s smallest Post Offices open for business, while providing a framework to achieve significant cost savings as part of the plan to return the organization to financial stability. The plan would keep the existing Post Office in place, but with modified retail window hours to match customer use. Access to the retail lobby and to PO Boxes would remain unchanged, and the town’s ZIP Code and community identity would be retained. “Meeting the needs of postal customers is, and will always be, a top priority. We continue to balance that by better aligning service options with customer demand and reducing the cost to serve,� said Postmaster General and CEO Patrick R. Donahoe. “With that said, we’ve listened to our customers in rural America and we’ve heard them loud and clear – they want to keep their Post Office open. We believe today’s announcement will serve our customers’ needs see page 2

Insight & Opinion

Clayburn Peeples reports: Well, I survived Trenton’s first ever, town wide yard sale with only minimum damage; two books, two small (5” high) plastic castles that open up to reveal even smaller interior rooms full of even smaller furniture, some of which, unfortunately, can be removed, and a tiny Gypsy wagon that also opens to reveal small, again removable, items, only one of which Grace and Margaret lost on the way to the car. What is it about yard sales anyway? A retail business puts up a sign offering everything in the store at 70% off, and we don’t even blink as we speed by, but if we see a hand painted yard sale sign with the word “sale” misspelled we brake so hard we shift the entire contents of the back seat into the front floorboard. It’s as if the sign says, “Free hamburgers!” And the stuff we find when we do get out of the car! Some people seem to think they can take junk so old and outdated and worthless they can’t even give it away and sell it in their carports and front yards. And guess what? They often can. Furthermore, sometimes when you sift through all that junk you find something you’ve wanted all your life. Often

Finding needful things at yard sales who refer to yard sales as “treasure hunts”, were looking for American Girl items, which almost never make their way to yard sales, and I was looking for something called a Puff Iron for my lovely wife. Most people don’t know what a Puff Iron is, and I didn’t either until she told me she needed one and that they don’t make them any more. One guy, when I asked him if he had one among several small electric appliances displayed on a precariously leaning card table, asked me if it was some kind of donut maker. “No,” I said, now wishing I hadn’t inquired about it at all, “it’s a softball sized, egg-shaped metal sphere on a stand that you mount on your ironing board and use to press puffed sleeves on dresses with.” “No,” he said, eyeing me warily. “I never seen anything like that.” Me neither, but that’s what I was looking for. I didn’t find one. I did find a broken toaster oven for sale, (just the handle was broken, the owner claimed) several small kitchen utensils and something called an Eggstractor, still in the box, which allegedly will automatically and perfectly peel boiled eggs. I was tempted, but I passed on it, too.

for pocket change. I guess that’s their appeal. There might be a fabulous treasure lurking among those old 8-track tapes, nearly new Thighmasters and VHS movies; a Tiffany lamp among the mayonnaise and mustard jars crammed into that dusty old diaper box. Probably not, but you can never know until you look. I know a woman who once sold a complete set of Haviland china at a yard sale for just a few dollars. “Why?” I gasped, when she told me about it. “I didn’t know what it was,” she said, still bitter about it. “My uncle gave it to me, but I didn’t know anything about china, and besides, I was into ironstone at the time.” “Oh man,” I groaned. “I know,” she said with a grimace. “I still can’t hear the word “Haviland” without getting upset.” And there may be another set out there. But even if you don’t find a fantastic buy, you may come across something you really, really want, but can’t find anywhere, at a pittance usually, of its actual value. An old-fashioned waffle iron or a multi disc CD changer, for example. Nobody wants stuff like that except people who do. On this particular jaunt, Grace and Margaret,

one is supposed to be for writers. Originally a college textbook, it still had the university bookstore’s yellowed price tag on it, a jaw dropping $68.00.

Figures show decline in fatal crashes over holiday weekend Preliminary figures from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security show 13 people were killed in traffic crashes on Tennessee roadways during this year’s 96-hour Memorial Day holiday period. This is a drop from the 19 fatalities that occurred during the 2011 Memorial Day holiday weekend and the same number of deaths as 2010. The 2012 Memorial Day holiday period ran from midnight, Friday, May 25 through 11:59 p.m., Monday, May 28. During that time, there were 10 fatal crashes that resulted in 13 fatalities. Six crashes were single vehicle wrecks, while four of them were multiple car crashes. Ten of the people killed were vehicle occupants and three were motorcyclists. Five of the ten (50 percent) vehicle occupants killed were not wearing safety restraints. In 1973, 26 people were killed in traffic crashes in Tennessee during the 78hour Memorial Day holiday period, the highest number of deaths on record. The

lowest number of deaths occurred when five people were killed in traffic crashes during the 2002 Memorial Day 78-hour period. During this year’s Memorial Day enforcement period, the THP made 94 impaired driving arrests statewide. They also issued 1,139 seat belt and child restraint device citations, 1,500 speeding and 511 registration violations. As of May 31, 2012, there have been 397 people killed on Tennessee roadways, 26 more fatalities compared to this same time last year. The last two months have shown a decrease in vehicular deaths compared to the same months in 2011, with 21 and 10 fewer fatalities in April and May, respectively. “One traffic fatality is one too many,” THP Colonel Tracy Trott said. “However, the reduction in trafficrelated deaths the last two months is an encouraging sign that our highway safety enforcement, along with our partnerships with local law enforcement agencies and highway safety advocates, is making a difference.”

Once implementation is completed, the Postal Service estimates savings of a half billion dollars annually. “The Postal Service is committed to serving America’s communities and providing a responsible and fair approach for our employees and customers,” said Megan Brennan, Postal Service Chief Operating Officer. “The Post Offices in rural America will remain open unless a community has a strong preference for one of the other options. We will not close any of these rural Post Offices without having provided a viable solution.” The Postal Service will provide an opportunity for the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to review this plan prior to making any changes. The Postal Service intends to file a request for an advisory opinion on the plan with

the PRC later this month. Community meetings would then be conducted to review options in greater detail. Communities will be notified by mail of the date, time and location of these meetings. This new option complements existing alternatives, which include: 1) Providing mail delivery service to residents and businesses in the affected community by either rural carrier or highway contract route; 2) Contracting with a local business to create a Village Post Office; and 3) Offering service from a nearby Post Office. A voluntary early retirement incentive for the nation’s more than 21,000 non-executive postmasters was also announced. Survey research conducted by the respected Opinion Research Corporation (ORC) in February, showed 54 percent of rural customers would prefer the new solution to maintain a local Post Office. Forty-six percent prefer one of the previously announced solutions (20% prefer Village Post Office, 15% prefer providing services at a nearby Post Office,

So does that mean I will never go to another yard sale, ever? I won’t until I see the next hand lettered sign nailed to a tree beside a rickety old table full of junk surrounded by four or five boxes full of stuff on the ground. Who knows, one of those boxes just might have something in it I just don’t need at all but just can’t live without. It’s like the lottery; you can’t win if you don’t play.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol conducted driver license and sobriety checkpoints throughout the state during this past holiday weekend. State Troopers will also team up with local law enforcement to conduct traffic safety enforcement campaigns on interstates and highways. A preliminary 2012 Memorial Day holiday statistical report, which includes the locations of the fatal crashes, accompanies this release. Please note the official traffic fatality count may rise due to delays in reporting and classification of traffic fatalities. The Tennessee Department of Safety’s ( w w w. T N . G o v / s a f e t y ) mission is to ensure the safety and general welfare of the public. The department encompasses the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Office of Homeland Security and Driver License Services. General areas of responsibility include law enforcement, safety education, motorist services and terrorism prevention.

11% prefer expanded rural delivery). This strategy would enable a town to possibly have a Post Office with modified hours, as well as a Village Post Office. The Postal Service has implemented a voluntary moratorium on all postal facility closings through May 15, 2012. No closings or changes to Post Office operations will occur until after that time. In addition to maintaining a retail network of more than 31,000 Post Offices, the Postal Service also provides online access to postal products and services through usps.com and more than 70,000 alternate access locations. Nearly 40-percent of postal retail revenue comes from purchases on usps.com and through approved postal providers such as Wal-Mart, Staples, Office Depot, Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Costco, and many others. A list of local Post Offices affected by the announcement are: Rutherford-38369; current retail hours are 8, proposed retail hours are 4. Kenton-38233; current retail hours are 8, proposed hours are 6. Yorkville-38389; current retail hours are 8, proposed hours are 2. Dyer’s Post office-38330 will not be affected and hours will not change. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

Relay teams continue fundraising with creative ideas BY WILLIAM G. MCFARLAND William White, Betty Jones, and Cheryl Whitworth are all available at the Rutherford Grocery to assist with the white Christmas tree with purple ornaments that stands in the grocery. It’s not a December tree in the month of June. It’s an ‘in memory and in honor of’ tree placed there by members of the Salem Methodist Church Relay for Life Team. Donated by

Mark Sims, the tree stands as a reminder for those who have battled cancer or are battling cancer. Ornaments may be hung on the tree for a $10 donation; they are also personalized. All donations go to the Salem Relay Team. The tree will stand in its spot until the Relay day. According to White, it could stay there longer because it is such a strong reminder to everyone who sees it. This team project along

with many others by various teams have been going on for several months in preparation for Relay for Life which will be held June 15 beginning at 5 p.m. on Yates Field at Gibson County High School. Gibson – North Relay for Life has made a really good name for itself. Last year a large crowd attended; the same is anticipated for this year. An opening ceremony will begin the activities where honorary chairs will be recognized followed by

The Badgett Chapel Choir will be performing during the walks. A gospel group will be singing after the walk. Zumba Dances will be dancing at midnight. Intermingled with all of this will be a time of great fellowship. Last year almost $60,000 was raised; hopefully, that same amount will be raised this year as teams work to try to kill the killer cancer that works while we sleep.

In addition to the activities Friday night and Saturday morning, a Survivor Dinner will be held Tuesday Night, June 12 beginning at 6:30 p.m at the Dyer Cumberland Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall. Bank night will be June 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the Dyer Church of Christ Fellowship Hall. Relay for Life is a wonderful group of dedicated people. Join us and be a part of our work to combat cancer. We need you. Don’t wait until someone in your family is struck with cancer before you help. Start now and make plans to attend.

Then the team lap will cap off the walks for those involved. However, walking will continue throughout the night as people use this time to pause and reflect. Relay night will be one of much activity. Music will be in the air making for a good evening. Food of all types will be served. The Luminaria Ceremony will begin as soon as darkness allows.

Last week was one of tremendous loss for our community as there were no less than three Kentonians and former Kentonians taken from us by death. Reese Houston, a citizen of Kenton for many years succumbed to death last Wednesday leaving a great chasm in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. A man with a servant’s heart, Mr. Houston was buried in Rutherford with military honors. One day later, the wellknown and loved former Kentonian, Mrs. Billie Perryman made her trek into her eternal reward and into the arms of her Savior. Mrs. Billie, as she was known to so many, will be sorely missed but her loving legacy will not be soon forgotten. Mrs. Billie was laid to rest in Kenton at Sunnyside Cemetery. The sudden passing of Macedonia Baptist Church’s Pastor James Barber struck a deep blow to not only his family and congregation but to the whole Kenton community and surrounding area as well. Bro. James, a very loving, humble and kind man, loved God, his family and all mankind and his absence will be forever felt. We bid these three servants of God a

fond farewell and extend heartfelt condolences to their family and friends. Eager customers desiring the tasty wares of local farmers and gardeners were thrilled to shop at the Farmers’ Market behind the Kenton Gym last Saturday morning. Though the variety of fruits and vegetables was still limited, those that were available were bought with anticipation of a full array to come in the very near future. Don’t forget to visit the Farmers’ Market each Saturday for your fresh fruit and vegetables. Food for thought: “I don’t know the cause of your illness,� the doctor said, “the tests I took were inconclusive.� Then he handed me a paper, and said, “take these.� I walked away in confusion. If he couldn’t diagnose the illness I have, then why did he prescribe me more drugs. When it comes to taking drugs today, I’d rather eat a bug! Prayer List: Charles Emrich, Liam Sims, Ronnie Lamar, Paul Hughes, Terry Sweat, Paul Williams, Eurby Sanders, Freda Lamar, Jesse and Elaine Davidson, Bobby and Carol Primrose, and Henry and Cathy Herane.

Sunday School for Shut-Ins When you’re ready please read I Samuel 9:15-16. As the men went into the city, the man of God – Samuel – met them. He was on his way to the sacrifice as the women had said. (I Samuel 9:13) The Lord has already told the man of God what will happen today. Samuel is watching. When Samuel sees Saul, the God of heaven says to Samuel, “That’s the man! He will reign over my people.� (I Samuel 9:17) Now I like this: Saul walks right up to Samuel and asked, “Where does the man of God live so I can go see him?� (I Samuel 9:18) Samuel answered, “I am him. Come go with us to the sacrifice. You’ll eat with me today. Tomorrow I’ll tell you everything in your heart. As for the donkeys that were lost three days ago, they’ve been found. And on whom is all the desire of Israel? Is it not on thee, and on all they father’s house?� (I Samuel 9:17-20) Saul believes himself to be small as he answers: “Don’t you know me? Of all the tribes in Israel, I’m from the smallest one. I’m only a Benjamite. On top of that, my family is the least of all the

By Mary King

families of the Benjamites. So how can you talk to me this way about going with you?� (I Samuel 9:21) Now Samuel, the man of God had told the cook all about this event, the day before. Samuel took Saul and his servant. He placed Saul at a choice seat. There were about 30 people there ready to eat. “And Samuel said unto the cook, bring the portion which I gave thee, of which I said unto thee, set it by thee. And the cook took up the shoulder, and that which was upon it, and set it before Saul. And Samuel said behold that which is left! I set it before thee, and eat: for unto this time hath it been kept for thee since I said, I have invited the people. So Saul did eat with Samuel that day.� (I Samuel 9:23-24 KJV) Samuel slept on the roof. When it was morning, Samuel called Saul up to the rooftop. They and Saul’s servant went into the city, walking and talking together. (See Amos 3:3 and Luke 24:13-14) Then Samuel told Saul to send his servant ahead of them. Samuel said, “Stand still and I will show and tell you the word of God.� (I Samuel 9:25-27)

Pharmacy & Your Health Lactose Intolerance A condition called lactose intolerance is characterized by difficulty digesting foods containing lactose, which mainly involve dairy products. Lactose is a sugar contained in milk. The condition occurs to varying degrees by ethnicity, affecting approximately 10% to 20% of Caucasians, up to 76% of Africans Americans, and over 90% of some Asian cultures. Consumption of any product containing milk may lead to unpleasant gastrointestinal symptoms in affected persons, including abdominal pain and diarrhea. A deficiency or abnormality of the enzyme lactase, with functions to breakdown lactose, can lead to the condition. Persons affected by the condition are encouraged to decrease lactose in the diet, maintain adequate intake of calcium and vitamin D, and to maintain adequate nutrition through alternative sources. Milk and ice cream contain a high lactose content. Persons who are particularly susceptible to the symptoms of lactose intolerance may choose to read labels, talking care to avoid items containing milk or any other milk product, and whey. Calcium carbonate (Tums) can be taken daily as a calcium supplement. Lactaid (lactase) is an enzyme supplement that can be taken before meals containing dairy to reduce the symptoms of lactose intolerance. Other lactase preparations include Dairy Ease, Lactrol, and LactAce.

Those having birthdays this week are: Eddie Bell, Cindy Earls, Mamie Woods, and Don Landrum. We want to remember

Terry Cunningham, who had a heart attack last week, and Mike Hensley who has been in the hospital. It was good to see Tommie Sue Keathley back in Sunday school. She has been out since last August. I found this poem in a cookbook: A Community Garden – Three rows of squashsquash grudges, squash criticism, squash gossip. Four rows of turnips- turn up for visits, turn up with a smile, turn up with a helping hand, turn up on time. Five rows of lettuce- let us love one another, let us welcome strangers, let us be faithful to God’s duty, let us worship God together, let us pray often for one another. If we all had a “garden� like this, what a better world this would be. Until next week – God bless.

The Apostolic Faith Tabernacle By Amy Davidson “Woe is me. Oh, I’ve got to get up and cook breakfast for the kids. Oh, I’ve got to go to work today and I hate my job. I need a new job. I need a new car. Oh, I need to get the house clean and I just don’t have the time because I’m so busy paying off the new car I just bought. The kids won’t listen to me anymore‌â€? and on and on and on the record plays in our head. Well, friends that is a blatant attack on our minds from hell. The Bible tells us that we have to “refuse the evil and choose the good.â€? (Isaiah 7:15) Joshua said to the Israelites, “Choose ye this day whom ye will serve‌â€? So the things we think on are a choice. We either choose life or we choose death. Paul tells in II Corinthians 10 that we have to cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. The apostle Paul even goes so far as to tell us exactly what to think on in Philippians 4:8 - things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, things that are of a good report, and things of virtue. So when you wake and find that you are already having a “bad day,â€? turn around and say â€?oh, hello Satan- but sorry, you have no authority here!â€? and then

choose life and begin to worship God on purpose. You may or may not believe me. I’m just a little voice in the newspaper. But God’s voice is quite large on the subject of praise. The Old Testament is full of times when praise solved problems. And I know some of you may that the Old Testament is just not important today but the New Testament tells us that it is. Paul tells us in I Corinthians 10:1 that these things were our examples and we all know that we are commanded to study to show ourselves approved in Titus. So read 2 Chronicles chapter 20 - how Jehosaphat’s army defeated the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mt. Seir because they obeyed God and put a choir out in front of the army to praises about God’s mercy. Oh, I just laugh out loud every time I read it because what happened was the army that was coming against Judah heard the praises of the army and they became confused and they all destroyed each other. And that is exactly what happens when we choose to praise the Lord in the devil’s face! He tucks his head and runs like the coward that he is. Friends, it is our responsibility to arm ourselves with the knowledge of God’s Holy infallible Word if we are to live a victorious life. Don’t just depend upon what the preacher says or what the Sunday school teacher says or what grandma taught you. We have to “seek out our own salvation with fear and trembling.� (Philippians 2:12) It’s up to us to choose life and Jesus came not only so that we could have life eternal but abundant life. Let the Bible be your instruction book for daily living. It is the path to abundant life. Be people of prayer this week. Lift up our drug addicts in prayer this week and believe that there’s a living God who can and will deliver them if we ask and believe. And remember that the things we hope for are waiting for us even though we can’t see them up ahead - and that’s why we praise the Lord.

Bethpage News By Joyce Brown We are thankful today for some much needed rain. It came with an amazing light and sound show Sunday night. I’m having to do catch-up this week as I just plain forgot to send in news last week. Oops, must be getting old! Birthday wishes go out to Riley Littleton, Chad McMackin, Brent Griggss, Matthew Littleton and Tina McMackin who all had recent birthdays. There was cause for celebration when Allen and Brittany Leitherland brought John Allen to Bethpage for his first time at church. He is such a miracle and came on the wings of many petitions to God for his healing and protection. He is precious as are all our little ones. Our church musicians always provide us with an atmosphere of worship when we come into the sanctuary. Memorial day Sunday Natalie Taylor played El

Shaddiah on her trumpet for quiet time and “God Bless America� for special music. Other pieces from the organ and piano were “In The Sweet By & By� “How Great Thou Art� and “Great Is Thy Faithfulness�. Bro James’ sermon texts and titles were Gal 6:1-2 “Man’s Best Restoration Plan�. Matt 5:43-48 “Love Like Jesus� and Luke 6:3138 “Live Like Jesus�. Many families had special gatherings to celebrate Memorial Day weekend. Some went to lakes, others had picnics and cookouts. The Hardin family met at the Mason Hall community center for their annual family reunion. Wanda reported they had a good turnout but were missing some of the older ones who are no longer able to travel the distance. There was a really good crowd of folks at the bridal tea honoring Bethany Griggs and Ben Whitehead. Bethany had a fun time seeing all the pretty things that they will be using as they set up their home together. Congratulations to you both. Our hearts are saddened

at this time in the loss of a dear friend and everybody’s “Preacher� Bro James Barber. His life was a true example of “Jesus with skin on.� The community has lost a champion of the Faith and he will surely be missed by all who knew and loved him. Our prayers and sympathy go out to Elaine, the girls and their families, his brothers and sisters, his church family, Macedonia. I know Heaven has a lot more hugs than it ever did before. Praise God! we’ll see you there James. Sympathy goes to the family of Billie Perryman who passed away last week. She had spent most of her life in Kenton, but had moved to Union City some ten or so years ago to be near their children. She was a dear sweet lady and will be missed by those who knew and loved her. Prayers and sympathy are extended to the family of Reece Houston who passed away last week. We have to accept that death is a part of life, but it does not have to be the end of life. If you don’t know the meaning of that statement, search our someone who does so that you may be able to experience life in the eternal way.

The Psalmist David said “Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.� (Psalms 147:1) And praise is what we did this Sunday! The Spirit moved upon the congregation and the presence of the Lord was thick in the air. Brother Davidson didn’t even have to preach because the Spirit came and preached unto the souls that were hungry for His presence. David also said, “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.� (Psalms 22:3) Inhabit means “to live in a place as does a people.� It means to occupy. So what that means is that we as a group of Jesus followers - a group of people who have the Spirit of the Living God inside of us - can praise the Lord with the words of our mouth and with our songs and demons have to leave. They cannot inhabit a mind that is already occupied by Someone who has authority over them. Praise confuses our enemy and all the hosts of hell. Take for instance the spirit of self-pity. Satan stirs it up early in the day. Sometimes we are being attacked by it even before we wake up good. So by the time we get good and woke up, our minds are being inhabited by thoughts of the devil.

deep and strong.â&#x20AC;? Let us continue to pray for those on our prayer list. James White is in the Trenton Nursing Home. In our lesson for today, we will continue our thoughts on the place called Calvary. Today, we will discuss the penalty, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crucified.â&#x20AC;? Crucifixion was a horrible method of execution, but practiced by many ancient cultures, beginning with the Persians. It was used as punishment for such crimes as treason, robbery, piracy, desertion and sedition. However, Christ was not crucified for criminal activities, but for my sins and yours (1 Corinthians 15:3, 1 John 2:2, Isaiah 53:5) Jesus experienced both physical and emotional pain on the cross. Physical Pain â&#x20AC;&#x201C; First in the Garden, He prayed so fervently, â&#x20AC;&#x153;His sweat was as if it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.â&#x20AC;? (Luke 22:44) This describes the medical condition known as hematidrosis (bloody sweat). The blood vessels rupture into sweat glands and blood flows out with the sweat of the brow. This may occur in highly emotional or stressful states. Second, in Jerusalem, He was scourged. The scourging room had a post two feet high. An iron ring, placed close to the top, projected from two sides to which the one being punished hold. The usual instrument was called a flagrum or flagellum. It was a short whip with several strips of leather with small iron balls, sheep bone and sharp rocks tied at varying intervals. Each time this whip was struck against the back of the victim, it left gaping cuts and open bleeding wounds. Jesus was probably in serious to critical condition before they even crucified Him. Third, at Calvary, He was crucified. He suffered five major wounds between nine in the morning and just before sunset. Four nails were used to affix Him to the cross. The nails were five to seven inches long and about 3/8â&#x20AC;? square. The last wound was from a spear piercing His side after death. (John 19:34) This was to ensure death. It was a cruel act. The standard procedure to finalize death was to break the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legs so that he could not lift himself to exhale. This was a fulfillment of prophecy. (Psalms 34:20) Emotional pain â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jesusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; emotional pain is revealed through the words He spoke from the cross. Notice His seven sayings from the cross. First, Luke 23:34, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.â&#x20AC;? Second, Luke 23:43, â&#x20AC;&#x153;verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise.â&#x20AC;? Third, John 19:26-27, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Woman behold thy sonâ&#x20AC;Śbehold thy mother.â&#x20AC;? Fourth, Matthew 27:46, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?â&#x20AC;?

Seventh, Luke 23:46, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.â&#x20AC;? Crucifixion was one of the worst types by death. It was a slow agonizing death. This was the kind of death that Jesus suffered for you and me. The apostle Paul said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been crucified with Christ.â&#x20AC;? Have you obeyed the Lord and His commandments to be saved? If not, you surely do not understand what He did for on the cross.

The Grapevine by Sarah Skinner We finally got a muchneeded rain. It rained Thursday evening and again Sunday night. I know the farmers are very pleased. We thank God for the rain; Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always on time. Our crowd was down Sunday morning at St. Paul. The womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department was in charge of the devotion. Tenthy Pounds was the worship leader. Pastor Pounds delivered the message. His topic, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Building to withstand the storm,â&#x20AC;? was found in Mathew 7:24-27. The mass choir provided the music. Bro. William Edmonds was transported to Jackson General hospital in Jackson Saturday. His family was with him. Sophrina Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baby girl was born early morning in a hospital in Memphis. LaShonda Dennisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baby boy was born Saturday evening at Baptist Memorial hospital in Union City. Preston White is sick, but is being treated at home. Our love and sympathy is extended to the Louis Swinney family, the Brother James Barber family, the Billy Perryman family and

all the bereaved families. Rev. and Mrs. Willie Pounds attended the service for Brother Barber. Several in the community attended the installation service of the new Beech Grove Missionary Baptist Church of Rutherfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pastor, Rev. Stanly Montgomery. Rev. Willie Pounds was among the several area pastors who participated in the service. It seemed that most of the people from Tiptonville, TN, Rev. Montgomeryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hometown, were present. Thos having birthdays this week are: Diondrea Pitts, Bennie M. Edmonds, and Rev. John Brooks. We wish them happy birthday. Master Sgt. Gary Banks has retired from the U.S. Army but has volunteered to spend another year on active duty in Afghanistan. He is leaving shortly. Keep him along with the other military personnel in your prayers. Lil Sarah Alford spent last week with her Aunt Michelle in Collierville. She really enjoyed being there.

Sports & Education West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation honors Pat Summitt Collegiate Sports Legend and Head Coach Emeritus of the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteers Pat Head Summitt is being honored with the Tigrett Award at the 23rd Annual West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation’s Charity Gala on Saturday, November 10, 2012. The Tigrett Award, first given in 2006, was established to honor Jackson native, John Burton Tigrett. Tigrett was well known for his world renowned entrepreneurship and philanthropy. The Tigrett Award was endowed by Fred Smith of FedEx and serves to recognize a Tennessean who has greatly contributed to society through his/her talents and leadership locally, nationally and abroad. A consummate taskmaster, she has kept her elite program in the winner’s circle for almost four decades, producing a

mind-boggling record of 1,098-208 (.840). During her tenure, the Lady Vols have won eight NCAA titles, as well as an amazing 32 Southeastern Conference tournament and regular season championships. Tennessee has made an unprecedented 31 consecutive appearances in the NCAA Tournament and produced 12 Olympians, 20 Kodak All-Americans named to 34 teams, and 77 All-SEC performers. Along with the success on the court, Summitt’s studentathletes have tremendous productivity in the classroom. Coach Summitt has a 100 percent graduation rate for all Lady Vols who have completed their eligibility at Tennessee. Her honors and achievements over the years number in the hundreds. The Sporting News named the 50 Greatest Coaches of AllTime. Summitt was voted

the 11th best of all-time and was the only woman on the list. She was inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in June of 1999, into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in October of 2000, and was the third member of the Tennessee Women’s Hall of Fame in June of 2011. More recently, the United States Sports Academy awarded Summitt its 2011 Mildred “Babe” Didrikson Zaharias Courage Award. Also in October of last year, The Huffington Post named Summitt a 2011 Game Changer - an innovator, leader and role model who is changing the way we look at the world and the way we live in it. The Tennessee Communication Association selected Summitt for its most prestigious award, Communicator of the Year. The honors continued. Among those was Summitt being announced by

President Barack Obama as the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom on April 19, 2012. She also earned a Lifetime Achievement Award from the President’s Council on Physical Fitness, Sports & Nutrition on May 3. Additionally, she has been announced as the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame’s 2012 Tennessean of the Year and the recipient of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, which

will be presented on July 11 at the 2012 ESPYs. Summitt, the all-time winningest coach in NCAA basketball history (men or women), ended her 38th campaign with eight NCAA Championships in the trophy case, including her most recent back-to-back titles in 2007 and 2008. Summitt stands alone at the 1,000-victory plateau among all NCAA coaches, On Aug. 22, 2011, Summitt

courageously revealed the toughest opponent she will ever have to battle, early onset dementia, “Alzheimer’s type,” after the doctors at the Mayo Clinic diagnosed her at the age of 59. To be sure, Summitt intends to take on this opponent with her signature game plan. For reservations, contact Chris Ramey at (731) 9842142 or Chris.Ramey@wth. org.

Kenton School students raise $3121 for St. Jude St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a facility in our home state of Tennessee that treats millions of children with various diseases. Many years ago the focus was totally on cancer treatment, but with research a huge part of what St. Jude is known for, many other diseases are treated also. The students of Kenton School participated in the St. Jude Math-a-thon this year. Their motivation was to exceed their $2,400 goal from last year, and they did just that. The students were able to raise $3,121 for the children of St. Jude. This total was collected by the help of only 31 students

from the school. A special thanks to the parents of these students, the community, and the students themselves who worked to ask others to donate to such a great cause. We should all take time to be thankful for our healthy children around us, and for a facility like St. Jude so close to home, in case someone we love had to go there. So when asked to support a child who is raising money for St. Jude, please stop and remember that your money is going for a great place that depends on 70 percent of public donations to continue the work they do for children.

TOP THREE FUNDRAISERS - The top three fundraisers for Kenton School St. Jude Math-aThon are (from left) Anna Claire Griggs, Macy Ruth Chandler, and Ellie Grace Carson.
