$15 million county budget passes 20-4 Goodyear closes Union City plant ahead of schedule Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., the top tire manufacturer in the U.S., stopped production at its manufacturing plant in Union City, and will close the facility. The company made the announcement Monday. The plant has about 1,800 workers and is a top employer in Union City, a city of about 10,500. Many north Gibson Countians have worked at the plant through the years, many having lifetime careers there. Goodyear had planned to shut the facility down by the end of the year. It was able to transfer its products to other facilities more quickly than expected, so is closing the plant now, according to reports from the company. A 2009 contract with the United Steelworkers union provided job security at six other plants but left jobs in the Union City plant unprotected. Goodyear said previously it would save $80 million per year by closing the see page 2

USW expresses disappointment in closing of Goodyear The United Steelworkers (USW) said earlier this week it was very disappointed to learn that Goodyear Tire issued a WARN notice to its members at Local 878L, informing them that their services would no longer be needed at the Union City, Tenn. facility scheduled for shutdown. The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988 (WARN Act) is a U.S. labor law which requires most employers with 100 or more employees to provide 60 calendar-day advance notification of plant closings and mass layoffs of employees. “We are very angered by the company’s announcement to close its Union City facility,” said USW International President Leo W. Gerard. “The harm being done over the years by our government’s inaction and manufacturers’ ongoing deindustrialization of the economy is relentless. Unfortunately, nothing we can say minimizes the impact this decision has on the lives of our members who work there, their families and the community. see page 2

BY STEVE SHORT Gibson Co. Commissioners showed surprising solidarity July 11, voting 20-4 for a $15 million budget that gives county employees pay raises and sets aside $200,000 to recruit jobs. Officials said it is the first time in 23 years that the budget has been approved before August. Mayor Tom Witherspoon advocated for a $200,000 economic development fund to recruit jobs. But in March his request for a $12.50 wheel tax to finance a jobs fund was rejected. Some legislators said, while they support jobs, they opposed setting up a fund. The new budget also funds 3% pay raises for employees this year. After studying pay scales of similar counties three years ago, commissioners said Gibson Co. workers were underpaid and voted to raise wages by

ten percent over three years. However, the pay hikes were halted after a single, 3% raise due to declining revenues. Monday’s vote puts the pay raise back on schedule. “I’m glad it went as smoothly as it did,” said Mayor Tom Witherspoon after the budget vote. “We hope to take full advantage of the resources this budget provides. Gibson Co. is getting into the economic development business, and I couldn’t be happier about it. This sends a huge message to the state, prospective industries and TVA that we’re not just giving the idea of economic development lip service. We’re giving it teeth.” He said reducing the county’s 13% unemployment rate would help balance the county budget, which has a deficit over the coming year of about $1.35 million. see page 3

Equatorial visit

Nearly 200 residents seeking FEMA aid BY STEVE SHORT Nearly two hundred residents in Gibson Co. sought federal financial assistance to recover from storms and flooding this year, according to official statistics. 198 people in Gibson County had registered for financial aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency as of the close of business July 7, said Kim Anderson, FEMA representative. Gibson Co. residents had received $51,237.70 in housing assistance and $12,028.41 in other needs assistance from FEMA as of July 7. Among area counties, Dyer Co. had the highest number of people receiving help from FEMA. 341 people registered from Dyer Co. and the county received over $1.4 million in housing assistance and nearly $129,000 in other needs assistance for storm see page 3

Missions begin at home, extend to earth’s end BY MICHAEL ENOCHS A 23-member team from the First Baptist Church in Dyer traveled for their fourth trip to Quito, Ecuador recently. Pastor DeWayne Goodgine stated, “The mission trips are to share the love of Jesus through evangelism, discipleship and health clinics. The team worked with missionary Ron Sutton on the field and witnessed over 500 people attending the clinics and over 400 professions of faith for the week.” Pastor Goodgine has served as the Senior Pastor of First Baptist since May of 2006. Since then, members of First Baptist have served in Ecuador, Belize, Brazil, Romania, Japan, Costa

Rica, Mexico, Mississippi, Tennessee, Nebraska and New Hampshire. Goodgine added, “I am very quick to point out that missions begin at home and extend to the ends of the earth. Our vision is to love God, love people, and serve on mission in Dyer and all over the world.” Said Goodgine, “The team to Ecuador consisted of Missions Coordinator Doug Duncan along with lifetime members Ronnie and Selene Barron who lost their family members in the tornado of 2006. The Barrons started the Tanya Taylor Family Memorial Missions Fund to help send out missionaries from the church to impact the world for Jesus. The response from First Baptist members see page 10

Dyer Station announces parade winners

Kenton Youth Center renovated BY CINDY EAST The Kenton Youth Center has been undergoing renovations for several months. The work was evident during the Opening Ceremony of the Kenton White Squirrel Festival. The facility, which was built in 1955, was in need of repairs and some sprucing up. Kenton alderwoman Faye Sharp, who was elected to the board last November, is the Parks and Recreation Commissioner for the city. Sharp’s main goal when running for the position was to improve the city’s park and recreation areas. She was delighted to be named commissioner and set to work almost immediately to improve the youth center and the gymnasium. “Some money had been set aside from taxes for our parks so I wanted to put it to good use. My husband Daniel and I have worked 40-hour weeks for nine weeks. We actually started on the gym. We repaired bathroom stall doors and dressing rooms doors that had been broken. Daniel made door facings for exterior doors that had been broken using his wood working skills and tools,” said Faye. The back part of the gym was an addition and contained the dressing rooms, bathrooms and a kitchen. The brick had started falling and the floor dropping. After getting approval for the work from the city board, Faye got Ram Jack to come in and install six piers to save the back of the building. The cost was $8,400. If see page 3

Insight & Opinion

Clayburn Peeples reports: I’ve written more than a thousand columns over the years, and with three or four exceptions, they’ve all been first written by hand, with either pencil or pen, on paper, in cursive. The few times I’ve tried to compose something on a keyboard and computer screen I’ve always had to struggle and wrestle with the words to the point that my final product has hardly been worth the effort. I thought about this the other day when I read that the State of Indiana has completely removed handwriting instruction from its required school curriculum. Instead, they will teach keyboard typing skills. Other states are expected to follow suit, and indeed, many school systems already have, in practice. Does anyone under 30 knows how to write anymore? I read a column the other day in which a man said his son

The handwriting on the wall

had recently graduated with honors from one of the best high schools in his city and is headed this fall to one of the nation’s most prestigious colleges. But when his son received a congratulatory note from his grandmother, he was unable to read it. It was written in cursive, and kids who never write in cursive usually can’t read it either. There has been an ongoing debate in America for the last 20 years or so over whether to continue teaching children handwriting skills. When computers became widespread, many educators became convinced that handwriting was becoming obsolete and that the time spent by students learning and practicing it could be better used by being taught other subjects. And now, with so many governmentally mandated requirements and strings attached grants available through such programs

as No Child Left Behind, the pressure on schools to produce proficiency in other subjects has crowded handwriting, which is not on any of the mandated proficiency lists, nearly out of the classroom. Preparing students for assessment tests, many teachers say, dominates class time to the point that there is no time for anything else. And many educators believe handwriting is an unnecessary skill. They point to the trillion text messages Americans sent over the last six months (as opposed to the very few letters they wrote) as proof that handwriting is going the way of hieroglyphics. We live in a digital age, they say, one in which the old-fashioned, nostalgic appeal of cursive writing is no longer a valid reason for continuing to take up class time to teach it. Handwriting advocates, on the other hand, and obviously I am one of them, point out that there are all sorts of reasons for teaching handwriting that go beyond insuring that students can sign credit card receipts, just as there are far more reasons for studying math than merely to learn how to add and subtract. When children learn to write they access their kinesthetic memory, the strongest and most reliable of our memory channels. That’s why we learn things

from page 1 plant. It said on Monday that it would pay an additional $20 million in restructuring costs related to the closure, on top of the $270 million it has already recorded. Goodyear presented the union with a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) Act, which is a 60 day notice that the plant will close. Following Goodyear’s announcement to end production at its Union City tire manufacturing facility, Congressman Stephen Fincher (R-Frog Jump) issued the following statement: “While Goodyear’s move to end production at its facility in Union City was not unexpected, it is a tragic loss for all the hardworking employees and surrounding communities. Our economy has been through trying times and Goodyear’s announcement to shutter its plants doors certainly does not ease the pain. I have spent much time meeting with people throughout the community and I am confident that its roots are strong and we will rebuild better than before. “We need to get back on the path of creating jobs. We must focus on restoring economic development and creating a friendly environment that allows businesses to invest and grow. Too many factories and workers across America have seen their livelihoods diminished as a result of the job-killing policies coming out of Washington. For too many years, the federal government has grown massively and interfered with the ability for the private sector to invest and grow. I will do everything I can to end the overregulation and threat of increased taxes in order to create a more stable economy and finally start putting people back to work in Northwest Tennessee and across the country.” State Senator Roy Herron issued a statement Monday regarding the treatment of 2,000 Tennesseans who found themselves suddenly without jobs at the Goodyear plant in Union City. “Goodyear showed its lack of patriotism by firing 2,000 Americans the week of the Fourth of July, its

Why? Because cursive handwriting stimulates the cognitive areas of the brain. It helps students learn to think, to organize their thoughts and to communicate them to others. We live in the most technologically sophisticated country in the world. We perennially surpass other nations in economics, medicine and all sorts of scientific research, and yet we are becoming more illiterate as a nation every year. That’s not surprising though; literacy rates are higher when kids are required to master handwriting skills. And here’s the thing. We’re not talking rocket science here. This is not organic chemistry or calculus. It’s simple, old-fashioned

handwriting, the skill our grandparents mastered and excelled at even though many of them never made it past grade school. It’s a skill all children can master with practice and as little as 15 minutes of instruction a day. You can argue, and I do, every chance I get, that most of the “computer training” children receive in school is wasted at the grade school level. Keyboarding skills can be taught in junior or high school, but the window of opportunity for teaching a child how to write closes during his or her grade school years. And for the child who isn’t taught handwriting, much of that child’s future closes with it.

better when we write them down. Learning to write in cursive, and practicing writing, increases a student’s ability to concentrate. It teaches them to focus, a critical skill essential to learning nearly all other subjects. Writing teaches students to organize their thoughts effectively, and it teaches them how to follow directions, a skill many employers say is what they look for most when hiring new employees. Studies have shown that students who write in cursive are better at reading, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, grammar and composition than those who do not.

callousness by stopping their pay on 9/11, and its insensitivity by both firing everyone and cutting off their pay on the Sabbath,” Herron said. “Goodyear is firing Tennesseans while they are hiring Chinese, and they can sell their tires overseas and forget selling another tire to this Tennessean. I have driven my truck 417,000 miles on American-made Goodyear tires, but this American will never buy a single foreign-made Goodyear tire.” Workers at the plant were told upon arriving to their shifts Sunday and Monday morning that production at the plant had ceased. The announcement came five months to the day after Goodyear had announced the plant would close by the end of the year. Goodyear has been closing American plants as it has been opening new plants overseas, including a new

The case demonstrated a 215 percent surge in passenger and light truck tire imports by volume and a 295 percent surge in value during 2004-08. The result was a loss of more than 8,100 domestic tire jobs by

plant opening in China in a few months. Under federal law, workers will receive two months’ salary -- meaning their pay will end on September 11, the 10-year anniversary of the deadliest terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. Herron is already working to fill the massive hole that Goodyear’s sudden departure will leave in the regional economy. “I have invited Governor Haslam, the Commissioner of Economic and Community Development, and the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development to come to Northwest Tennessee and talk with workers, business leaders, and citizens about what they are going to do to help our people,” Herron said. “I will do everything I can to make sure the state government responds to the needs of our people and helps bring new jobs here.”

the end of 2009 from closed plants. “We tried also to convince the company to put different product lines in the Union City facility,” said USW Secretary-Treasurer Stan Johnson, who directs the unions Rubber and Plastics Industry Council, “but its response was that it did not need the capacity in the North American market.” USW Local 878L members will continue to receive their wages for the duration of the 60-day WARN notice and will receive substantial benefits that were negotiated in advance of any possible shutdown. Goodyear had announced on Feb. 10 that it intended to close the West Tennessee plant by the end of 2011. Some 1,900 people from West Tennessee and western Kentucky are affected. “Our heart goes out to all of our members there as they embark on a transition, which is too common these days: hard working Americans, their families and communities suffering the loss of skilled production jobs because of our country’s inability to adequately enforce trade laws designed to maintain a level playing field in the global marketplace,” said Conway. The USW represents 850,000 workers in North America and the Caribbean employed in the industries of metals, rubber, chemicals, paper, oil refining and the service sector. For more information:

$15 million county budget passes 20-4 from page 1 Witherspoon also said he wants Gibson Co. to offer prospective industry the most attractive workforce possible. The new budget’s ten largest allocations are Ambulance-EMS $2.316 million; Jail - $1.984M; Sheriff Dept. $1.950M; Airport $827,239; Employee Benefits $750,872; Liability Insurance $584,988; Clerk’s Office $558,721; Senior Citizens Center $505,389; County Buildings $488,869; and Other Local Health Services $395,789. The budget keeps the tax rate at 94 cents per $100 assessed property. The General Fund budget has a deficit of $1.35 million. But Budget Chairman Butch Shelton and Budget Director Lanita VanDyke

said the county anticipates a fund balance of $2.1 million next June. Ms. VanDyke said the county projects a fund balance this summer of $3.3 million, the largest fund balance she’s seen since she began working for the county in 1974. Shelton credited the easy passage of the budget to an approach that involves the entire commission – not just the Budget Committee – in managing finances. “If you were here during the budget process your questions should have been answered,” said Shelton. “We explained things and got information out to people prior to their vote. If they need to explain their vote to their constituents, they have the knowledge to do that. Our county

employees are working hard, and we’re very frugal. Just because they budget for expenditures they don’t necessarily spend it.” Employees in offices of the Trustee, Juvenile Court, County Clerk, and Rabies Control were credited with bringing in revenues significantly beyond projections for 2011. EMS ambulance collections also exceeded projections. David Nance, leader of the Gibson Co. Patriots tea party group, spoke to the commission several minutes, criticizing the budget’s $1.4 million deficit and increased spending. “A 25 percent growth in county government in two years is big,” he said. “The public has tightened our belts, but the county is not tightening their belt.”

Kenton Youth Center from page 1 repairs had not been done they would have lost the back addition. The double doors on back of gym also had to be repaired. “We’re not through with the gym even though we’ve made improvements. It’s had a complete new roof put on too, after 31 years,” said Sharp. The Youth Center interior has been painted with Daniel doing most of the work. All of the Sharps’ time has been volunteered. Old broken windows were covered over, making 14 framed boards inside that are perfect for displaying pictures. Each framed board features pictures with different themes. One displays photos of youth from the1955 when the Youth Center first opened. The photos were made by Bobby Taylor, who donated a number of black and white 8x10s for the display. “I’d like to thank Bobby for those photos. The building was meant for the young folks to have a place to dance. It was built with materials and labor that was all donated by members of the community,” Sharp said. “Bobby also made color pictures of all the area churches and they are displayed on another board. I would also like to have military pictures of our veterans to display on one of the boards. Everybody loves looking at the pictures. We’re trying to depict life in general in and around Kenton whether from the present or the past.” The other boards showcase pictures of former Kenton business owners, and of course white squirrels. Daniel built new bathroom vanities to cover the pipes and drains, painted the kitchen cabinets, and the countertops were replaced. The Sharps did some bargain shopping

for the Youth Center’s needs. They bought two nice sinks at Tucks for $5 each, and found a pair of nice mirrors at a yard sale for $5. They have also recycled some items. Daniel built two closets for storage using old exterior doors. One closet has shelves for storing kitchen items. “It’s been seven months since I started on the board and we have lot more to do. The floors are being painted this week by Eric Stansberry. We have also had help from the city crew. Aldermen Tim Johns and Wade Simpson approved three men from the city crew to help us. They spent three days tearing down some walls and sliding doors that divided the kitchen. The work was too hard for me and Daniel to handle. I’d like to thank Ricky Dean, Nathan Spencer and Jeff Matthews for their help. I’d also like to thank Megan Sanford who donated four hours of her time helping us for her community service project at UT Martin. It’s good to have young people help.” “We are basically finished with the Youth Center. It is a place anybody would be proud to have a family reunion or birthday party in. I’m real pleased with what we have done. The next project is to install new

ceiling tiles, which will make it look better and hopefully cut down on the noise and echo in the building. I’m planning to hold a fundraiser to buy the ceiling tiles. We have a little money but I don’t want to drain it dry. We may have an emergency and need it. With the economy the way it is, grant money will not be available as it once was. Our community will have to pitch in and volunteer time to do things for their town to make a difference and make it look better. We can’t expect money from the government because they don’t have it either,” Sharp said. City officials were pleased to locate all the trophies from Kenton School. They had been in storage and plans are to get volunteers to clean and polish the trophies and display them inside the Youth Center. Daniel has committed to building the display case. Faye said the city’s park is really nice and is second to none for a small town. The walking bridges need some repairs. The posts have sunken down from all the rain and the city employees will jack up the bridges and put in concrete for the posts. Both the Youth Center and the gym are air-conditioned and can be rented. It is $50 for the youth center and $100 for gym.

Tim Curry, a Patriots member, opposed $400,000 for jobs and pay raises. “I understand county employees need and deserve a raise, but now is not the time,” said Curry. “You’re saddling more on the taxpayer than they deserve.”

Voting against the budget were Valess Stults, Melvin Morris, Coy Yergin and Greg Stone. “Most of the people I spoke with in my district didn’t agree with having a $200,000 industrial development fund,” said Stone of Yorkville. “I

understand our county employees are good people who work hard and do a good job, but most people in my district said they haven’t gotten raises, and they don’t feel this is the appropriate time for a raise. I have to vote for what people in my district want.”

EXPO SITE SEEDED, READY FOR OUTDOOR ARENA - The finish grade is complete, the ground has been worked up and grass seed spread at the Expo Center outdoor arena site. Volunteers worked Friday spreading straw on the site to help hold the seed and moisture. They are Hill Rogers, Phil Cooper, Zack Mercer and John Ramsey from McCurdy Sod Farm, Randy Parham, Chris Parham and James Albert Green, owner-operator of the straw blower. Chris Parham said they are ready to put up the outdoor arena when a time can be coordinated with volunteers.

Rook winners announced BY ALICE ERNEST Saturday morning July 2 at 10 a.m. was such a good day for a lively game of rook as Tom Lannom carried the participants through playing until ‘high noon’ 12 p.m. at the Dyer VFW. Dyer Station Celebration Committee expressed their appreciation especially to him and all the players. Winning gift certificates for Subways in 1st place was Horace Paschall, in 2nd place Wilma Holt, and in 3rd place Laverne Parnell. Next in line was Jerry Robinson, who took home the left-over cookies from the morning’s refreshments. Might there be the making of a two-person picnic there?


Kellwood, he knew it was a great place to work and how important it had been to the community. James and Diane Gilmore drove approx. 180 miles and this was their 3rd year to attend. Earl McAlister entertained us with some country music from his CD’s. The McEwens from Dyer provided religious songs and G3 sang some oldies but goodies. Connie Flowers, a former employee, is a member of that group. Also a cake walk seemed to be enjoyed by everyone. Since our attendance

was small we voted to have another one in two year and changed the date to the 3rd Saturday in June so it would not conflict with the Relay For Life. A lot of former employees take part each year in this very important event and do not get a chance to attend the reunion. Hopefully changing the date will work out better for everyone. I know two years seemed like a long time off, but it will be here before you know it, so just remember it will be two years and on the 3rd Saturday in June. Hope to see a much bigger turnout in 2013.

Kenton News Bobby and Carol Primrose have had several family and friends from several states visiting with them in Kenton lately. During the Fourth of July week, Carol’s brother and sister-inlaw, Jimmy and Teresa Simmons of Spartanburg, South Carolina spent five fun days together. While here they went to Kentucky Lake for a cookout with their brother and sisterin-law Freddie and Wilda Simmons as well as several other family members, making for an impromptu family reunion. Later in their visit here, the Primrose’s hosted a fish fry at their home. In addition to the Primroses and Jimmy and Teresa Simmons, other guests were Marie Ragan of Dresden, Darla, Terry, and Erin Elliot of Greenfield, and Jesse and Elaine Davidson of Union City. In spite of the heat they all enjoyed their time together as well as a delicious fish dinner. The Primrose’s most recent guests were cousins from Houghton Lake, Michigan, Jack and Regina Gould. While visiting together, they drove to Reelfoot Lake for delicious catfish dinner. The Gould’s returned home on Sunday morning. A baby shower was held last Sunday afternoon in the home of Ronnie and Cindy Lamar for Michael and Amanda McAlister who are

expecting their first child in August. Several guests attended, showering the soon-to-be-parents with and array of very nice gifts. Everyone enjoyed delicious Slushy Punch, cake, a watermelon basket filled with fruit, nuts, and mints. Condolences are extended to the family and friends of Beverly Burchacki who passed away. Prayers are also offered on their behalf for comfort in their time of sorrow. Food for Thought: It’s time for peace, time to reconcile, it’s time to care, time to love a while. It’s time to forgive, time to let it go, it’s time to learn what we all should know. In this great world and what it holds, our relationships with each other are the real gold. Prayer List: Vickie Robinson, Jimmy Simmons, Amanda Davis, Jackie Zaricor, Chandler Abbott, Jesse and Elaine Davidson, Elmer and Virginia Williams, Paul Williams, David Stephenson, Regina Miller, Joe Smith, Easton Hopper, Carol and Bobby Primrose, Eurby Sanders, Freda Lamar, Gwen Rickard, Judy Webb, Doris and Sam Weatherly, Sally Copeland, Henry and Cathy Herane, Racine Hodges, and Clint McLodge.

Bethpage By Joyce Brown Talk about hot. Whew! Thank the Lord for air conditioning. Some were remembering chopping cotton and corn in weather like this. That’s not what we call “fond memories.� It surely has been a busy week with sweet corn and green beans ready to be put up. Picking green beans is a particularly low down job that old backs complain about. We had a good crowd at Bethpage Sunday. Cody Alford came down with his birthday money. He is really growing up in a hurry. Quiet music by Janice and Tina was “Follow Me� and call to worship was “Majesty.� The offertory piece was “Gentle Shepherd� and Bro. James used that as a lead-in to his sermon taken from John 21:18-25 “A Call To Serve.� The Sunday night sermon was “Checking Out A Church� from 1 Thes 1:1-10. Charles did a special “Master of the Sea.� Reminded me of the times when Garry Burkacki and the Scrap Iron Boys would do that. They all enjoyed so much getting together and singing with gusto and we loved listening to them. Bro. Garry and the rest of the Burkacki family are missing their sweet little Mama today. Mrs. Beverly went to her heavenly home

on Saturday. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time. Sympathy is extended to the Bearden family in the loss of their father and grandfather, Mr Lodis. Best wishes are sent to Steve and Susan Littleton and children as they are moving to Iowa to pastor a church in the Waterloo area. We will miss seeing them often but are thankful that they are following God’s leadership. Joe Jenkins will be having a procedure this week and we pray this will go as planned. Others have been undergoing tests etc and seem to be “ticking� right along. Bro James’ brother had surgery and is recovering nicely. The Cochran family enjoyed a short vacation last week. Ask those big boys about their water acrobatics. There are tough times ahead for many families in our area affected by the locked doors at the Goodyear plant. Thousands will be searching for jobs in this troubled economy. Please commit this to prayer and remember that God is still in control and He will provide. A quote from Bro James’ sermon: Let’s be salt and light to a lost world.

Sunday School for Shut-In When you are ready please read 1 John 3:11. “But what does it say?� The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.� (that is the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved� Romans 10:8-9 NKJV. I’d had prayed and asked Jesus to forgive me, save me and come into my heart. I’d agreed with Christ Jesus that I was a sinner. The precious word of God. I’d made no attempt to listen to my mother nor the preacher. But the moment I prayed my heart changed. My desires about God and His church changed before I got up off my knees my heart turned. We’ve been saved through precious blood. Our very lives prove to others the goodness of our Father. We have a desire to overcome evil with good (I John 3:10). We can do this only in His strength.

Keely Mill Our Sunday morning services began with everyone singing the hymn “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.� Dakota Warren opened us in prayer. We all dismissed to our Sunday school classes. Christy Skelton opened the adult class in prayer before doing a good job teaching us our lesson from Jeremiah 1921, entitled “Submit to Divine Discipline.� The Lord expects His people to recognize and submit to His discipline in their lives. From cover to cover, the Bible teaches the importance of discipline. Shirley King closed us in prayer. Our Sunday morning worship services began with Elaine Fields playing the piano and Mike Fields leading us in our opening hymns “Victory In Jesus� and “Now I Belong to Jesus.� Mike Fields opened us in prayer. We had special time of prayer for the Carolyn Powell family. We extend our love, sympathy and prayers to her family. Bro. Steve made many announcements and many praise reports were given. We all enjoyed our time of meet and greet with our church family and visitors where many hugs and handshakes are shared. We thank the Lord for our visitors. Bro. Steve blessed us by singing our special music,

North Union We were blessed with good attendance for Sunday services even with several members out for various reasons. Cody Cooper and Chelsea Joyce are competing in a rodeo in Oklahoma this week and then Chelsea will go on to Wyoming for the National High School Finals next week. But for those of us who were here, our focus was on our upcoming Vacation Bible School, which begins Wednesday, the 13th at 6p.m. “God’s All-star Champions� promises a fun-filled time for kids through the 6th grade. “Remembering� was the theme of my children’s message this week. We learned how God wants us to be continually in remembrance of His rightful position in our lives. This also went along with what we had studied in Sunday School from Judges. It seems like those folks “forgot� to remember their promises to follow God faithfully. Our morning sermon entitled “The Story of the Pen� capped off a wonderful worship service. Bro. Chris Marks shared a compelling story about a man wanting to buy an ink pen for

By Mary King

The Apostle Paul wrote to encourage the church at Philippi: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me� Philippians 4:13 NKJV. These words were given tot he Apostle by the Spirit of God for the church (For then and now.) God knows everything and every detail that will happen before it happens. He even knows what the devil will do before he does it. God gave us the Old Testament as a tutor to help us to see the schemes of the devil as well as the love of God. People were plotting to kill Jesus when He said these words to them: “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me: for he wrote about me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?� John 5:46-47 NKJV. God gave us Jesus to die for our sin even before we were born. Jesus was the final and only payment the only atonement for our sin.

By Diane Hamlin “People Need the Lord.� Children’s church was dismissed to Jennifer Fields. Bro. Steve’s morning message was ‘Unity’ was from Philippians 2:1-5. Mike Fields dismissed services in prayer as the hymn “Softly and Tenderly Jesus in Calling� was sung. Our Sunday night services began with everyone singing the hymn “Heavenly Sunlight.� Dakota Warren opened us in prayer. We all dismissed to our discipleship training classes. Mike Fields opened the adult class in prayer than did a good job teaching us our lesson “When the Old Becomes New� from 2 Corinthians 5:17. God transforms people, making them totally new creations. Our Sunday night worship hour began with Elaine Fields playing the piano and Mike Fields leading us in the hymns “Jesus is All the World to Me� and “Sunshine in the Soul.� Bro. Steve’s message was from Psalm 19:1-14. Mike Fields dismissed services in prayer as the hymn “Have Thine Own Way, Lord!� was sung. Read your Bibles and be people of prayer this week. Join us for VBS every Wednesday night in July at 7 p.m. and facebook.

By Connie Cooper a friend and made the mistake of telling the shop owner that “money is no object.� Well, he was shown a pen priced at $38,000. Bro. Marks’ message went on to show us how Satan can get people to love the things of this world even when the cost is much too high. I liked this quote, “People are to be loved, not stuff; Stuff is to be used, not people.� Birthday blessings go out to Connie Cooper and Lexi Whitley. Frank and Sarah Allen are celebrating their anniversary on the 14th. Joyce Downing, Sondra Eddings, Rene Rutherford and I attended a fundraiser for cancer patient Portia Bennett on Sunday afternoon in Sharon. We had a good time and I even got taken out for lunch to celebrate my upcoming birthday. Thanks, Joyce! Don’t forget to mark your calendar for our Revival coming up on July 24th. Linda Carmoney, my dear friend from Michigan, is coming over 600 miles to attend the revival, We’ll have good preaching and good fellowship and we don’t want you to miss it!

Dyer Church of Christ Morning worship services had an attendance 105 and 84 in Sunday school. Our message for the morning service came from the book of Matthew 3:13, John baptizes Jesus. We have fulfillment of the scriptures through the baptism of Jesus. John recognizes Jesus as our sacrificial lamb. Jesus baptism pleases God. Do we always try to please God? Remember in Prayer: Frank King, Josh Tharpe, Debbie Petty, Jerry and Reitha Martin, all of our shut-ins and one’s in nursing homes. We traveled to the Nance Church of Christ for the Summer Youth Series devotional Sunday night after services. This has been a great opportunity for our young folks to get out and see other fellow Christians from different areas.

We hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. Thanks to everyone who was able to participate in the parade on the fourth in supporting our upcoming VBS on July 18th through 21st. If you haven’t had the opportunity to look around the grounds at the church we had a cleanup day last Thursday morning and had a group of about 20 workers show up to help out. Thanks to everyone who was able to take a little time out of their day to come and cleanup (especially in the heat). We even had a few little ones picking up limbs and helping out. Mark your calendars, our next activity Sunday will be July 31st. We will have a special message, an “add a dish� meal after services and an early service at 2 p.m.

Golden Agers Wednesday July 7 was such a good day as 16 friends, Golden Agers met at Dyer FBC fellowship area to feast on the good food everyone had brought and to enjoy Christian experiences with each other. Prayers were uplifted for those having surgery on in need of healing including Carolyn Karnes, Angie Bates, Jerry Davis, Barbara Scott, Chandler Abbott and Rita Hicks. Sympathy was extended to our own Kay Rayfield in the loss of her brother bob Davidson and sympathy also for his wife Ginger Davidson and all his family. Kenny McEwen and Anne Thompson provided the morning’s music and they led in singing “Must

Jesus Bear the Cross Alone� and “I’ve Got my Peace like a River: and Kenny blessed us with a solo “Sheltered in the Arms of God.� Dyer FBC Pastor DeWayne Goodgine titled his devotional “Freedom in Christ� and he selected the scripture Romans 6:15 in which Paul refutes the “Open-season� on sin since a Christian is covered by grace. Utilizing the words of Paul in II Cor. 3:17, the scripture indicates that with Christ’s spirit within us we desire to become more like Him and hate our sin. But sin is ever present around us and we are tempted by Satan yet drawn by the Holy Spirit. Whom we obey we will serve; we will mirror and we’ll become like.

Lowrance Chapel By Jerry Bell We all enjoyed another great day in fellowship, worship, honor, praise and devotion to God last Sunday. It was a special joy to see Brother James White back again sitting in his usual place. We are thankful that he is feeling much better. His wife, Peggy is still in the Dyer Nursing home. Barbara Wiley was not able to attend. Our lesson was taken from 2 Kings 6:15-18. Elisha was a prophet of God. He and his servant found themselves surrounded by the Syrian army. Elisha’s servant was worried but Elisha was not. He knew that God was with him. He prayed for the eyes of his servant to be opened. When they were, the servant saw the armies of the Lord revealed. We need to open our eyes to our spiritual possibilities. Let us pray the Lord will open our eyes to 1) Our spiritual needs 2) The lost souls of men and 3) the growth of the Church. The apostle Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:7 that “we walk by faith.� There are some things we can’t see unless we look with the eyes of faith. The patriarchs in the Old Testament had such faith. (Hebrews 11:13-16) They looked for a heavenly home which they could not see, but it was by their faith in God’s promise that they could “see� it. Let us pray the Lord to open our eyes to our spiritual needs. We’re not going to see our spiritual needs until we believe in our spiritual needs. We all have a sin problem. (1 John 1:8, 10) As a result of this problem, we are struggling to maintain fellowship with God. It’s our efforts to walk in the light that maintains that fellowship. (1 John 1:7) Our spiritual needs come from our spiritual nature. We are all made in the image of God. (Genesis 1:27) We each

have a spiritual nature, a soul, and an eternal spirit. We also have physical nature, a body. That part of our nature will grow if it is fed. Growth is commanded by God. (2 Peter 3:18) The answer to our spiritual needs is in the Word of God. Let us open our eyes to this need. Let us pray the Lord to see the lost souls of men. We tend to see the good in people’s lives first; that is what we want to see. We understand that the people who are our friends and family also have a sin problem and that their relationship with God is affected by this problem. Those souls need God’s message of truth because the world cannot save them. (Matthew 16:24-26) Christians have an obligation to teach that message. We need to open our eyes to performing our role in evangelism. Let us pray the Lord to envision the growth of the church. Do we see ourselves involved in that effort? Can we envision a plan to make that happen? We need to open our eyes to a vision for the growth of the church. In the first century, the growth of the church was commanded. Jesus told the apostles to take the message to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the whole world. (Acts 1:8) It wasn’t an option for them. It’s not an option for us either! They either grew or died! We each need to develop our abilities to teach others. (Hebrews 5:12) We need to open our eyes to the fact that God wants us to teach! Disciples are made by teaching. (Matthew 28:1820) We can make all kinds of excuses why we are not growing, but will God accept them? Let us open our eyes to all the possibilities before us. Paul said that “all things are possible with God.�

New Hope By Shirley Hooper Wednesday evening Brother Corey Meggs led us in prayer requests and praise reports. He then continued the study, “Road to restoration� from Ezra 4:1-24. He focused on overcoming obstacles. What challenges do we face each day and how do we deal with them? Do we ever let Satan interfere? Sunday morning our special music was brought by Doug Jones, “Too unworthy Lord to come to you, would you please come down to me?� Brother Corey spoke on “Got Hope?� from Psalm 71, focus on verse 14.

He explained the hope we have in Jesus is a certainty, a sure thing. We are bought by his blood. We observed the Lord’s Supper. Brother Corey’s evening message, “Why do we go to church?� was from I Corinthians 9:19-23. He explained the question, “What is the Church?� a community of believers, a family if faith and love, part of the body of Christ. Vacation Bible School is next week, July 18 through 22. Family night is on July 24. Come join us. Sunday, July 31 at 6 p.m. we will enjoy Joan Gregory.

Cumming, GA - Gentry Barton, 88, died at his beloved rustic home on Lake Lanier in the Chestatee community of Forsyth county July 6th, 2011. There will be a graveside service Saturday, July 16, 2011 at 10 a.m. at Rutherford City Cemetery with Bro. Hobert Walker officiating. ‘ Gentry was a retired Regional Sales Manager in Atlanta for CIBA Pharmaceutical Co. (now Novartis). He was a member of Ansley Golf Club and past member of the Atlanta Sales Executive Club. He was a Chemistry graduate of the University of Tennessee and a member and president of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. Gentry was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and served during World War II as an Ensign USNR. Gentry was born and raised in Rutherford Tennessee, the son of the late Edgar G. Barton, Sr. and Clella Glisson Barton. He is also predeceased by his wife Nancy Huffard Barton. He is survived by his brother Ray C. Barton and his wife Judy of Seneca, SC; nephews Kevin G. Barton and his wife Connie of Cumming, Douglas R. Barton of Orlando, FL and Roy Richards, Jr. and his wife Ginna of Charleston, SC. He is also survived by a first cousin, Betty Jane Johnson of St. Petersburg, FL and Mark Glenn and his wife Patricia of Tampa, FL, son of his late wife Nancy. Gentry had numerous wide-ranging interests and hobbies, all of which he pursued in depth, e.g. collections of Oriental rugs; art, both paintings and old maps; antique tools; books on many subjects; pocket knives; a variety of flags; the best of any items made in Britain; fine clothing, as he was always a dapper dresser; to mention a few. Notwithstanding his exquisite tastes, as a child of the great depression, he was inherently frugal in most areas. Above all Gentry epitomized Sir Francis Bacon’s “I have taken all knowledge to be my province” There was hardly a subject about which he was not conversant. During a full and accomplished life he developed and loyally cultivated many lasting friendships, involving not only face-to-face and telephone relationships but perhaps thousands of letters. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends, especially his brother, to whom he was also a second father. Instead of flowers, Gentry requested as a memorial to him that you do a good deed for someone and he would want us all to pause and remember the good times. Donations may also be made to your favorite charity.

No decision has been made whether to issue or deny this permit. The purpose of this notice is to inform interested parties of this permit application and to ask for comments and information necessary to determine possible impacts to water quality. Persons wishing to comment on the proposal are invited to submit written comments to the department. Written comments must be received within thirty days of the date that this notice is posted.

Tenn. ranks near top for transportation, infrastructure For the second year in a row, Tennessee’s transportation system ranks as one of the best in the nation, according to CNBC’s 2010 study “America’s Top States for Business.” The business news network scored all 50 states on 40 measures of competitiveness, including the vitality of each state’s transportation system. Tennessee’s overall score ranks the state as the fifth best in America in the category of ‘Transportation and Infrastructure.’ “This recognition speaks volumes about TDOT’s commitment to maintaining a superior transportation system,” TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said. “The strong support from Governor Haslam,

the Tennessee General Assembly, contractors, and local citizens is the reason our state’s transportation system ranks among the best in the nation.” “This acknowledgement is a true testament that the department and the industry strive to build and maintain a high-quality transportation system,” said Kent Starwalt, President of the Tennessee Road Builders Association. “We are pleased the state is being recognized for these efforts.” The CNBC study measured the states’ transportation systems based on the quality of the roads and by the value of goods shipped by air, land, and water. This is the 5th year the news network has performed the study.

Missions begin at home, extend to earth’s end from page 1 to share the gospel of Jesus Christ has been amazing.” The ministry consisted of health clinics, which were well attended in several different areas of Ecuador. Goodgine continued, “After the people had their blood

pressure and blood sugar checked, they were fitted for eye glasses and then to the evangelism portion of the ministry. Street evangelism and children’s ministry were also an important part of the mission throughout the week. First Baptist Church

has plans to lead a health clinic in Dyer in August.” Another incident of note that occurred on the mission trip involved Rachel Duck, the wife of Rev. Daymond Duck, a noted author and world-renowned expert on Bible prophesy.

VISITING THE HOSPITAL – Members of the First Baptist Church mission team visited with hospital staff. They are (from left) missionary Ron Sutton, Tesha Goodgine, an Ecuadorian hospital nurse, Pastor DeWayne Goodgine, Ronnie and Selene Barron.

Rev. Duck has written enough books on Bible prophesy, since 1992, to fill a bookshelf. His titles include: On The Brink an Easy-to-Understand EndTime Bible Prophecy, Revelation: God’s Word for the Biblically-Inept, Daniel: God’s Word for the Biblically-Inept, Prophecies of the Bible: God’s Word for the Biblically-Inept, The Book of Revelation: The Smart Guide to the Bible, Prophecies of the Bible: The Smart Guide to the Bible, The Book of Daniel: The Smart Guide to the Bible, and Return From Exile: The Smart Guide to the Bible He is the co-author of The End-Times Survival Handbook. He is a contributing author to: Forewarning--Approaching the Final Battle Between Heaven & Hell, Foreshadows of Wrath and Redemption, Piercing the Future---Prophecy and the New Millennium, Prophecy At Ground Zero--From Today’s Mideast Madness to the Second Coming of Christ, and Departure---God’s Next Catastrophic Intervention Into Earth’s History. Duck’s commentary, Revelation: God’s Word for the Biblically-Inept was the second bestselling commentary on the Book of Revelation in the United States for several months (Second only to Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind series). It was so successful it was adapted and published in a second version called Revelation for Teens. Duck’s book Prophecies of the Bible: The Smart Guide to the Bible has been translated into Spanish (Profecias De La Biblia) by Vida Publishing (Zondervan) and distributed in South America. His book The End-Times Survival

Handbook has been published and distributed in the United Kingdom. Several of his books are available for Kindle users. Duck has appeared countless times on radio and over 300 times on television programs including NPR’s Week End America and Christian Perspectives on Charter Cable. Duck’s wife, Rachel, went on the mission trip to Ecuador. While they were in the city of Quito, missionary Ron Sutton, took them to a Christian Literature store where he buys most of his supplies for his mission work. As the group was browsing the shelves, Pastor Goodgine noticed a familiar book cover design on the top shelf. Having read books by Daymond Duck that were published by Thomas Nelson Publishing Company Goodgine was familiar with the design. He took the book down, which was printed in Spanish. Goodgine does not read or speak Spanish, so it took him a few moments before he realized he was holding

Duck’s book, Prophecies of the Bible: The Smart Guide to the Bible. Here it was in a store in Ecuador, printed in Spanish. Goodgine walked over to Rachel and showed the book to her. Everyone became excited over the find, and Rachel bought the book so she could bring it home for her husband. Rachel said, “I was so excited and trying to make the girl at the checkout understand that it was my husband who had written the book that the checkout girl asked me if I needed a glass of water. She thought I was going to faint. I was talking in English and she was talking in Spanish. After she came to understand that my husband wrote the book in English and here we found it in Spanish all the way down in Ecuador, she sold it to me at a discount.” Rachel Duck continued, “When we came back home and I showed it to Daymond. He was fairly surprised that his book had been translated into Spanish and was in a store so far away.”

TRANSLATED BOOK – Rachel Ducks displays her husband’s book, Prophecies of the Bible: The Smart Guide to the Bible that has been translated into Spanish (Profecias De La Biblia). Rev. Damond Duck displays his book, The End-Times Survival Handbook that has been published and distributed in the United Kingdom.
