Acting Up Tennessee’s annual tax free holiday is August 6-8

Dyer officials lower garbage collection fees The Dyer Board of Mayor and Alderpersons voted to approve Resolution 2010187 to reduce the city’s garbage collection fees from $13 to $11 per month during the Monday, July 26 meeting. The board also passed Ordinance 2010-186 to levy a property tax for the fiscal year July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011. The rate is a one-half cent increase per $100 of assessed valuation of taxable real property. The rate is set at $1.69 per $100 of assessed valuation of taxable real property. The personal property tax rate is also $1.69 per $100 of assessed value. The railroad and public utility tax was also set at $1.69 per assessment for ad valorem tax purposes as provided by the Comptroller of the Treasury. The taxes fund the budget of the 20102011 fiscal year. Both the resolution and the ordinance became effective July 26, 2010. In the street department report, Supervisor Steven Tucker advised that the air conditioner on the city’s 1997 Chevy truck no longer worked and needed to be repaired. He had one estimate from Wright’s Auto repair. Alderman Robert Johnson asked Tucker to get more estimates for the repair. see page 3

FOR THE KIDS - Staff members of the Gibson County 21st Century Afterschool Program participated in a workshop/seminar this week with actor-director Connor Snyder (lower photo with 21st Century Afterschool Program enrichment coordinator Becky Terry). Tracy Bawcum, Kim Kelly, Tracye Wylie (standing) Penny Panell, and Beverly Roberts perform in an improv skit during the seminar held at the GCHS Equine facility. The staff will use the skills they learned to teach children in the after school program all about acting. The students will perform in plays throughout the school year.

Reaching for the stars BY CINDY EAST A local after school program is reaching for the stars. Becky Terry, Gibson County Special School District 21st Century Afterschool program coordinator, has been working four months to bring Connor Snyder to Gibson County for a training seminar. Snyder’s company, Kids 4 Broadway, teaches children the art of theater with camps and seminars. Over 16 GCSSD after school staff members from five schools met with Snyder in a training seminar earlier this week to learn the basics of drama, improvisation and acting skills. The staff will then pass these skills along to the children. “I wanted to include the arts this year in the after school program,” said Terry. “This training will prepare our after school staff for the 20102011 school year. I want these children exposed to the arts and Kids 4 Broadway was the perfect opportunity. I look forward to seeing our school kids perform. Our staff will teach them the basics of acting and they will perform in a few productions during the school year.” Snyder was a professional actor for 18 years. She played Nurse Able on the series M.A.S.H. and also had roles in soap operas including One Life to Live. She had many roles on Broadway where she

co-stared with Claudett Colbert. Many years ago, Michael Learner of the Waltons, was her acting coach. Snyder has also done voice-overs. She has produced theater shows and several programs for HBO including The Travel Journal. “I’ve had lots of good training,” said Snyder. “I’ve written 16 original plays. My husband encouraged me to market the plays to children’s organizations, clubs and after school programs. That is when I had the idea for Kids 4 Broadway.” She started holding seminars and theater camps see page 14

Rutherford raises taxes, rate fees

Election day is finally here BY DANNY WADE-HUMBOLDT CHRONICLE Election Day is finally here this week. Dozens of candidates have thrown their names in the hat seeking various positions. For the most part, the local county candidates have run a clean race through newspaper advertisements. Republican candidates seeking the governor’s seat and the 8th Congressional District have waged more aggressive campaigns. Many voters say these “mudslinging” style advertisements are a turn off and do not sway their vote whatsoever.

Memories of the first day of school BY MICHAEL ENOCHS Tammy Ladd is a teacher at the Dyer School. Since school starts back this week, and for the youngest kids it will be their very first day of school, Ladd thought it would be a good idea for the Tri-City Reporter to ask some senior citizens what it was like for them on their very first day of school. We went to the Dyer Nursing Home to interview a few seniors. Bonnie Dodd is a true senior citizen at the present age of 99 years. She was asked what she remembered see page 3

According to Molly Bailey with the Gibson County Election Commission, early voting ended Saturday at noon. A larger than usual number voted early this year. Bailey estimated almost 3,000 took advantage of early voting. Here in Gibson County voters have the chance to select dozens of candidates for office. These include both Democratic and Republican primaries for certain seats. For the county, the General Election will decide who takes office as county mayor and commissioners. see page 2

CAMPAIGN SIGNS - With several highly contested races in August’s election, political signs can be seen on practically every street corner and intersection around the county. In Thursday’s election voters will select a new county mayor and both Republican and Democrat nominees for state and national seats. Local Local Owner, ‘01 Trade ‘96 One ‘99 Trade Local Trade

BY MICHAEL ENOCHS Taxes and rate fees for some services are going up in the City of Rutherford. A water and sewer rate ordinance (2010-2) was approved on the second reading before the city board of aldermen at Rutherford during the last regularly scheduled meeting held on July 26. The ordinance will replace former water and sewer rates as follows: per billing cycle the water rate will start at the minimum (does not have any volumes included) at $10.45 with $2.90 added for each additional 1000 gallons of water used. The sewer rates will be charged the same as the water rates. Ordinance 2010-3, for rates for the customers of the solid waste collection system, was also approved. The residential rate of $11.54 per cycle will remain unchanged. The small business pull cart rate will be $18.90 and a two yard dumpster will be set at $85.07. The see page 2

Rutherford raises taxes, rate fees from page 1 four yard dumpster will be $115.04 per cycle and the six yard dumpster will go to $141.46. A budget ordinance was also approved on the second reading that will add a 25cent increase on property tax. Mayor Keith Cardwell informed the board that he was waiting for information from David Angerer at MTAS concerning raising the city sales tax. The Dollar General Store in Rutherford has applied for a package beer sales license. Alderman Bob White brought the matter to the attention of the council and mayor. The council will have a beer board meeting on Monday August 2, at 6:30 p.m. to address the application. In other business brought before the council, a new 10year contract allowing New Wave Communications to do business in Rutherford was approved. An approved motion to replace Bill Barron as the city attorney was rescinded and a new motion was approved to reappoint Barron. The council approved allowing the new Rutherford

from the fire station while the department was out on a call. The theft was reported to Police Chief Mike Hensley. The fire department and the police are on the lookout for the power washer. They would greatly appreciate a call from anyone with information about the theft. White added that water has been stolen from outlying hydrants that belong to the city water system. He suggested that the city buy hydrant locks for outlying fire hydrants for the purpose of preventing any more theft of city water. In the police department report, Chief Hensley stated that the Rutherford Police made 211 calls to service during the month of June. The department’s newest fulltime officer had resigned. The council approved making part time officer Fulbright a full time officer. Discussion moved to the oldest police cruiser that has transmission or differential gear problems. To get a newer car with a warranty will cost $15,000. In the water and sewer report, alderperson Kathy Keith mentioned that

Grocery to place an electronic advertising sign in front of the store. White reported that he was ready to relinquish his duties on the park committee. Cardwell appointed alderman Dusty Emerson and alderperson Sandy Comstock to resume the duties of White on the park committee. Eddie Watkins visited the council asking for a commitment from the city to make the ballpark available for flag football on weekends during September and October. Watkins stated that flag football needs help from the city. There will be no admissions fees for the games, just concessions as a way to generate revenues. White stated that the town could place it under the city’s ball insurance. Under department reports, Fire Chief Bob Blankenship stated that the fire department had two meetings for the month of June with an average attendance of 12 fire fighters. The department responded to two calls: one to assist Dyer, and the other was a structural fire in Rutherford. Blankenship also reported a stolen pressure washer

sewage was leaking out from behind the elementary school. Aldermen Don Greer and White volunteered to look into the problem. In the street department report, the Front Street bridge tear out for replacement will hopefully start soon. Greer suggested the city should get the brush pickup under control. The street crew is not supposed

to pick up trash with the brush. White suggested that the council should rewrite the old city ordinance to comply with the suggestions. Emerson distributed a list of suggestions to the council concerning ways to cut back city spending. He asked that the council study the suggestions until the next meeting for more input and ideas.

White addresses the council on the need for the city to have an up to date police policy. White believes the department needs to adopt a modern guide for police procedure from MTAS, and the matter needs to be addressed by committee. Cardwell assured the council that he will have something concerning police policy by the next meeting.

Election day is finally here from page 1 The $35 wheel tax increase question is also on the county ballot. In the Republican primary, Bill Haslam, Ron Ramsey and Zach Wamp are the front-runners for governor. Democrat Mike McWherter is running unopposed. For the 8th Congressional District, Democrat Roy Herron is unopposed while Stephen Fincher, George Flinn and Ron Kirkland are the front-runners for the Republican nomination. Don McLeary and Jim Harding square off for the Republican nomination for state senator. The winner will face-off against Democrat Lowe Finney

in November’s General Election. Republican Curtis Halford and Democrat Joe Shepard are sole candidates seeking their party’s nomination for state representative and will square off in November. Gibson County voters will elect a new county mayor this week. Independent Tim Luckey, Democrat Tom “Spoon” Witherspoon and Republican Mark Renfroe are seeking the mayor’s office. Sheriff Chuck Arnold will serve another term since there is no opposition for the sheriff’s seat. Republican Andy Elliott is seeking to unseat incumbent Democrat Hilda Patterson

as register of deeds. The county clerk’s office will have a new face with Democrat Joyce BrooksBrown being challenged by Independent Mark Tell Carlton. Democrat Janice Jones is running unopposed for circuit court clerk while Independent candidate Leanne Smith is unopposed for trustee. Numerous county commissioner seats are up for grabs. There will be eight to 10 new faces on the commission after the election. Several constable positions will be filled as well as various school board trustee positions across the county.

Memories of the first from page 1 of her very first day of school back in August of 1915. Dodd recalled, “I went to first grade at the age of five and a half years old. That was at the Mason Hall School. The school had four rooms downstairs and one large room upstairs for programs. There were two classes in each room. My room was the first and second grade. There was on old pot bellied stove that took coal. There were no fans or any such thing as air conditioning. There was no running water or electricity. We had a well pump outside with a pipe that ran out with four or five holes in it. One person pumped the pump and four or five could get a drink of water. There were out-door toilets. Everyone walked to school and brought their lunch with them. We swapped things from our lunches with each other and made up our own games at recess. On my first day of school, our teacher, Ms. Johnie Hornbeak, asked that I be taken out of school for the rest of the year because I was too young and immature. I was uneasy on that first day, but I was sad when I was sent home because I really did want to go to school.” Dodd continued, “We moved shortly after that and I started school at Liberty School in Obion County where I went for one half a year, then we moved back to Mason Hall. I was six and a half years old by then in 1916 and was glad to get back with Ms. Johnie. I went to Mason Hall from then on until I graduated from school and became a teacher myself.” Gilda Glisson Oliver is 87 years old. She went to school at Lone Oak School, across the road from Walnut Grove Church about three miles east of Rutherford. Oliver remembered, “I started school at five years old. Lone Oak School was a big schoolhouse with a steeple on it. We also had a pump for our water and the b o y s would fight o v e r w h o w a s going to get Gilda Oliver to pump

the water. On my first day of school my mother was with me. There was another girl there with her mother. The girl had on the same kind of dress as I had. The dress cost 39 cents from Sears and Roebuck. Her name was Creeda Elkins and we became best friends from then on, and still are. She lives in Kenton today.” Oliver continued, “I wasn’t scared at school because my family lived between two stores and knew everyone in the community already. I would always go with my daddy to the stores and everyone would pick at me all the time so I wasn’t a bit shy. My teacher was Ms. Buena Drewey and she would teach us dance steps and sing. It was great fun. My cousin Harold Glisson would see my grand paw James Abraham’s Model T Ford go down the road past the school and he would leave school and run off down the road and jump in the car. The teacher would have to go after him.” Permelia Thompson is 91 years old and started school when she was six years old at Glendale School five miles west of Newbern. Thompson said, “My first teacher was Ms. Smith and she was married to the principal of Glendale. The school had four or five rooms. There was another schoolhouse nearby that had two rooms and was for the highest grades. The schools were wooden buildings with a pump and outhouses for rest rooms. We lived about one half mile from the school. All the roads w e r e d i r t roads b a c k then. No one w o r e shoes to school when Permelia school Thompson f i r s t started up. In September, school would let out so everyone could pick cotton. After cotton-picking time, everyone would have earned enough money to buy new shoes. When school picked back up, everyone would be wearing shoes before cold weather set in. The school had wooden partitions across the center that folded back to make the building all one large

space. This was so we could have programs as a benefit for the school. People paid admissions to attend the programs that in turn helped support the school.” Sylvia Crocker Fulgham is 75 years old and was born and raised east of Rutherford and attended Lone Oak School at Walnut Grove. Fulgham remembered, “I was the youngest of five children. I was the baby of the family. The reason I am telling you this is because I have been reminded I was the baby ever since my first day of school. I cried all through my first day of school because I didn’t want to leave my momma. Sylvia Fulgham M y brother Levi was the next oldest to me in age. I tried to make him feel sorry for me. I asked him what would he do if I fell down in a mud hole in my new dress. I was hoping he would feel sorry for me and take me home. Instead he told me if I fell in the mud hole he would pick me up and throw me in the creek. I have called him Creek Boy ever since. He tried to take care of me, but I still cried and cried, so he took me to our older sister Dora. I finally finished crying before the day was out. Later, I went to Rutherford School but I never did graduate. I finally went and got my GED in 1980, and it was the happiest day of my life. I credit Coach Kilzer from Trenton with my getting my GED. He gave me all the encouragement to do it.”

Call the Chamber office at 731855.0973 to register or for more information. How to Start A Business.. Learn the Basic ABC’s to developing a business plan. This class is designed for anyone who wants to start a

new business. It will walk you through the essential steps necessary to develop a business plan; one that will ultimately show you, bottom line, if the business is viable. It will enable you to see visually the time it will take to break even. It covers all the important areas of business activity from business licensing, business entities, market research, to financial development, marketing,costing and record maintenance. The class provides a step by step process in understanding not only what is required to be done, but the why it is important that it be done. Statistics prove that 80 percent of new businesses fail within the first 5 years. Of those that make it through the first 5 years, only 20 percent make it to the 10th year. This means that only 4 percent of new businesses are around after 10 years. If a new business owner attends at least three seminars, he cuts his chance of failure in half.

Effective Business Management For anyone in business, this class will show you how to watch every aspect of your business that contributes to “bottom line” profitability. It is designed for not only for a normal economy, but for survival in tough economic times as well. It will address issues in Marketing Management, Financial Management, Human Resource Management and General Business Management. Whether you are a retailer or a service organization, this class will teach you ways to look at cost savings through a “different set of eyes!” Things that are done by “rote” often generate trouble; the goal of this class is to show you how to avoid these pitfalls. The steps are not complicated or difficult, but it does require commitment. Hopefully, the pro-active approach we show you will motivate you to more positive management strategies and enable you to address your profitability regardless of market conditions.

Dyer officials lower from page 1 In department reports, City Recorder Jason Griggs gave the finance department report, and advised that he had spoken to Joyce Welborn, representative of the Water and Wastewater Financing Board.

Insight & Opinion

Clayburn Peeples reports: Here’s something interesting I ran across the other day. Two brothers, one a minister who teaches religious studies in college and the other an eating behavior scientist from Cornell University, teamed up recently to evaluate the amount of food depicted in the various paintings of The Last Supper produced over the last 1,000 years. Their thinking was that since the Bible makes scant mention of what was served, other than bread and wine, looking at what artists had added to the table over the centuries might tell us something about food customs and practices of the artists’ eras. Although the painting depicts a meal, the food on the table is incidental, therefore, the brothers speculate, religious philosophies would not influence what the artists painted in that regard. What the artists would have put on canvas, the researchers decided, were their observations of what, and how, people ate at the times and places where

Food portions, waistlines increase

the various paintings were produced. They settled on head size as a reference point because although people have gotten taller and heavier over the last 1,000 years, head size is relatively unchanged. They then scanned 52 of the best-known paintings of The Last Supper and compared the portion sizes and amounts of food on the tables relative to the average apostle’s head size. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, they found that the amount of food on the table has grown progressively over the last millennium. The size of the bread on the table is now 23 percent larger than it was when first painted. The plates are 66 percent larger and the main courses are 69 percent bigger. The variety of food on the table has also increased. The Bible mentions only bread and wine, but over the centuries artists have added all sorts of foods — oranges, fish, eels, rabbits, lamb and even pork. Fish is the most popular

entree found on the paintings. Eighteen percent of the canvases feature it. This, of course, makes sense in view of the symbolism of fish in early Christianity, and Jesus told his disciples to go out and become “fishers of men.” And we can probably make a pretty good guess as to why 14 percent of the artists showed lamb on the table, but how do you explain the 7 percent who chose to have pork served. It’s hard to figure what the artists who did that were thinking. But the point is that over the last 1,000 years the trend has been toward more food on the table. Some things don’t change, do they? We’re still adding calories to our diets. If you cook much at all, you’re familiar with the cookbook, The Joy of Cooking. First published in 1936, it is my favorite cookbook, the one I would keep if I could keep only one, but each time it is revised (about every 10 years) recommended portion sizes get bigger. So much so that the average calorie count per serving in the latest edition is 63 percent greater than what it was in the original. Portion distortion. Apparently it’s been going on at least a thousand years, but it has really accelerated in the last 30 or 40. Thirty years ago a bagel was three inches across and had about 140 calories in it. Today they are more like six

inches across and contain about 350 calories. Coffee? We used to get it in eight ounce cups and add nothing more than cream and sugar. Today the prices of fancy coffee drinks aren’t the only outrageous things about them. The calorie counts are in the stratosphere too. How about colas? Just two words will suffice — Double Gulp, at 64 ounces and nearly 800 calories, it is about ten times larger than the original Coca-Cola. Remember McDonald’s when they first opened? They only had one size of fries then. They still have that size. They call it “small.” It’s only one third the size of their largest offering. Beer and chocolate also

once came in one size only, again a size as small, or smaller, than the smallest size available today. Everywhere you look, food vendors are offering larger and larger amounts of foods. Even diet food companies advertise products like Lean Cuisine and Weight Watchers’ dinners in larger meal sizes. In spite of all this, and a thousand other examples, and a mountain of evidence about portion control and how it is completely out of control, an amazing 78 percent of Americans surveyed recently claim to believe that eating certain types of foods and avoiding others was more important in weight management

than eating less food would be. And the researchers also found, distressingly, that there is an increasing American trend to simply ignore the issue of portion size. As a matter of fact, recent studies show an increasing percentage of us say large portion size is one of the main things we look for in a restaurant. But we haven’t even noticed that restaurant plates, which used to be standardized at 10 ½ inches, are now a foot across. Or that throughout the supermarket, the size of food packaging and suggested portion sizes have increased steadily over the last 30 years. Just like our waistlines. And we still wonder why!

Letters to the Editor:

Dyer citizens object to rate increase for water, sewer rates The mayor said the increase for water and sewer services is because of the new water wells started in 2008 and the old equipment at the water and sewer plant. He also said if they did not increase the rate the state will take over at the water department. The water and sewer fund budget for 2010-2011 is $1,303,279. This is an increase of $124,126 over last year. That requires spending $3,571 per day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year. What we need in Dyer is someone who can cut costs first, but the mayor and board like the easy way, to raise rates on the citizens that are on fixed incomes, working part time, or have no job at all. If you check the minutes of the board meetings from 2009 until July 2010 and add all the cost for parts, repairs, and chemicals at the

water department, all these together do not justify this rate increase. What you will find in these minutes are resolutions that put the citizens of Dyer in debt $670,000. These resolutions listed have been passed in just the last 10 months, when we are in the worst recession in 70 years. 1. Resolution 2009-174 passed on October 12, 2009$65,000 for lights for the ball field. 2. Resolution 2009176 passed on December 14, 2009-$200,000 for a building to house the fire truck. This March 8, 2010 vote was questionable. 3. Resolution 2010-183 passed on June 14, 2010$405,000 for a lift station and water and sewer lines to the West Tennessee Expo Center. How many jobs do you think this will create for the city? This Expo Center is a black hole that will require more and more money. The

citizens of Dyer should vote in November about funding this Expo Center. We have still Resolution 2008-168 for $350,000. This is for the water wells the mayor said was the reason they needed to raise rates. One more bit of information: the mayor and board voted to give all city employees three additional holidays this year. The employees now get their birthday as a holiday. We wonder how many other citizens of Dyer received three extra holidays this year. Rutherford just published their budget, and the water and sewer fund budget is $900,000 less than the water and sewer fund budget in Dyer. Maybe our mayor and board could learn a few things from our neighbors in Rutherford. Joe Gathings and Ken Workman Citizens of Dyer

Rutherford 1st Baptist By Katheryn Blankenship There was a great turn out last week for Bible school. Family night was Friday night. To get everyone a place to eat, there was an overflow in the gym. Sunday morning we had a good crowd for worship service. The choir sang “More than Wonderful� for the special. Brother Jason’s message was “Dangerous Teachings� from Mark 8: 14-21. The Sunday evening message was from Revelation 1:1-3, “An Urgent Message.�

Billy Griffin sang “long Black Train� for the special. There will be a Birth Choice Softball Tournament August 12, 13 and 14 maybe it will be cooler by then. Those having birthdays this week: Brother Jason, Pam Flowers, Jason Davidson, Tommie Sue Keathley and Bobby Wilson. It was good to see Jeff Johnson back with us Sunday. He is doing much better. There were several visitors and we welcome you back. Until next week God bless.

We had another inspiring worship service on Sunday at Cloras Chapel. Minister Jesse Austin brought the word from God and he was on fire. He rolled up his shirt sleeves so that he could fight the devil. His message was “Knocking Down the Strongholds.� It was enjoyed by all. Rev. Myles has not been feeling well the past week. We think the very hot weather is playing a part in this. The sanctuary choir sang without music. Our musicians were not present, but the choir sang their hearts out anyway. We had visitors from Mt. Zion Worship Center. They were on vacation and the church took a trip to Florida. We had Sister Annetta Smith and daughter Deborah, along with Eric Skinner. We also had Kenneth Finch and Phyllis Doaks. Kameron and Nyla Myles visited their grandparents Fred and Lois on Sunday. They have two sets of grandparents in Cloras Chapel and they were very glad to see them. Sister Kimberly Kemp had her grandchildren with her also. There were lots of members missing Sunday because of illness. We missed Elder Charles Simpson with a toothache and Keith, Willie, and Bunches who went to Memphis. We missed Walter Nolan and we pray for the family in their hour of bereavement. Sister Laura Rodgers, Minister

By Robin McNell Valerie Seals, and Sister Doris Bradford were missed also. There were others that were on our hearts and we are praying and thanking God for all of our members that we love dearly. This week is a full week for Cloras Chapel. Monday night Rev. Myles will speak in Yuma, TN to begin their Fall Revival. The choir traveled to Bells Chapel CP Church near Yorkville last week and really did sing well. Tuesday night they will traveled to Mt. Orange Missionary Baptist Church in Trenton. Bible Study is Wednesday and there are meetings on Thursday and Friday nights. Don’t forget Saturday Women’s Conference beginning at 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Our special guest will be Evangelist Gail Perry from Lighthouse of Worship in Humboldt. We will be discussing issues women face today. Everyone is invited. Birthday bags were given out in Sunday morning worship. We are praying for all school children who will be returning to school on Friday, August 6. We are hoping and believing that they will have a good school year. We are praying for Sister Evelyn Fields and family as she battle with her sickness. We ask everyone to continue to pray for Cloras Chapel. Don’t forget to count your blessings and remember always to bless the Lord at all times for He is good!

Laneview Baptist Church Let me just begin by saying what an awesome day you missed at Laneview this past Sunday if you were not there. It began with our studies in Sunday School. Next was our congregational songs followed by specials by Natalie Farrar and Johnny Cavender. Bro. Darryl’s sermon was entitled “ Yes Lord I Will.� You may feel that there is no forgiveness for your past but our God is an awesome God. He loves his children and forgives us of all our sins if we only ask! He is there to hold your hand through any storm you may go through. He never walks away from you He is always right were you left Him longing for you to come back to his arms. God has a plan for all of our lives. Are you allowing Him to be in control? Allow God to redirect your life and feel his awesomeness! After our worship service we had a wonderful dinner in the fellowship hall. Bro. Reggie Lafaye kicked off our note burning service with some awesome saxophone playing and singing. It was great to have Bro. Reggie and his wife come back to celebrate our special day with us.

Many people were recognized for their faithfulness to Laneview during her journey. The deacons, treasurer, pastors, and so many others who had a part in God’s plan for Laneview. Bro. Don Cooper spoke to us about how this should not be the end but the beginning of our freedom. We are no longer tied to debt. There are many doors open now but we must let God lead us through the one to take. He still has a plan for Laneview. We must be faithful to Him and trust his guidance and not become complacent. Our note burning service ended with the actual burning of the note in a big pot outside the church. It was a great day that’s been in the making for 14 years! Hallelujah! What an awesome God we serve! Upcoming events: August 13-14 Beth Moore Conference in Lexington,Ky. August 29 Bethel Renaissance Choir in a.m. service. Come join our movement at Laneview for our Awesome God! Sunday School 9:45, Worship Service 10:45 Bro. Darryl Marcle Pastor.

Morning worship services had an attendance 90 and 70 in Sunday school. Perfect attendance was Cradle Roll, 4 and 5 year olds and 3rd – 5th grade. The message for the morning service came from the book of 1 Corinthians 13:4-14. One faith and one salvation, hope endures all things and God is love. We should love one another as God loves us. The message for the evening came from the book of Philippians 2:5-11, Jesus was a servant. We are already a servant of Satan or Jesus. We can only serve one master. We always have a choice. Remember in Prayer: Don Clark, Jerry Martin, Terry Clark, Vickie McCoy, Joy Taylor’s Brother Henry Burch, James Carson’s sister in law, and all of our shut-ins and those in the nursing home.

For the last decade we have watched as company after company has left our county taking hard working people’s jobs and our tax base with them and the only time it is discussed is when an election rolls around. With Gibson County’s unemployment rate at nearly twice the national average, industrial development and job creation should be at the top of our lists, not just at election time but ALL the time. Will it be easy? Of course not, but then again name one worthwhile accomplishment in our lives that was easy. It won’t be easy, but it will be impossible if we don’t try.

Hard Work, Good Ideas and Determination . . . That’s What Gibson County Needs Now!

There will be a list of supplies needed for the children’s home posted in the foyer. If you have any questions please contact John Taylor. Retraction from last week’s news; I apologize for the wrong news printed in the paper last week. I sent news from last July instead of this July news. I am deeply sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Our gospel meeting with Justin Paschal begins Sunday, August 8th through Tuesday, August 10. Services are at 7:30 nightly. Solomon, the writer of Proverbs gives us a demand from God in chapter 23 verse 26. “My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe my ways.”Our lesson topic will be around the theme of “The Heart Demanded.” The heart can be applied in some instances to the understanding, to signify the memory, for the will and affection and the whole mind, both soul and spirit. What is demanded? It is the heart. The heart is naturally depraved, in a fallen, debased, unholy state, and practically wicked. From it precedes all the evils of the lip and life. It is also necessarily unhappy, naked, starving, wretched, and blind. The heart shall exist forever. It is now in a state of solemn responsibility, a time of trial and probation. This life is the only opportunity that shall be afforded. Observe the person by whom, and the purposes for which the heart is demanded. The claimant is God. He says, “My son, give me your heart” indicating that He is the one who owns it. He is its creator. He is the one whom we are justly subject. He is our Savior, who by an expensive

sacrifice has provided ample means for its restoration to holiness and eternal life! God does not need it. He is infinitely happy in Himself and independent of all His creatures, but He desires the heart of man because He has compassionated its wretchedness, and because He delights in mercy! God’s purposes, for which He demands our heart is so that He may enlighten, convince, pardon, sanctify, keep, dignify, and eternally save it. He stands connected to us as our creator, preserver, savior and judge. Not only was the heart formed by Him, but for Him. He is its only good. We are not our own. We belong to God. Who then will we give your heart to; Satan, that he may destroy it, the world, that it may pollute it, or to sin, that it may ruin it? God alone has the words of eternal life. He only can make us everlastingly happy. We need to comply with His demand for our heart and give to Him humbly, believingly, and unreservedly with every faculty and power of the soul, understanding, will, judgment, memory, and conscience. One who refuses God’s voice of merciful invitation must bear the sentence of eternal woe! Is your heart right with God today? “My son, give me your heart.”

We thank the Lord for our visitors. Bro. Steve called all the children to the front of the church where he and several men of the church joined in prayer for them as they start back to school and are the future of the church. Our special music was a blessing as Jennifer McDonald played the piano Jimmie Martin, Brett McDonald and William McDonald sang “Have a Little Talk with Jesus.” Bro. Steve’s morning message was from the book of Exodus 15:6-18 entitled Power. Dakota Warren closed our services in prayer as the hymn “The Nail Scarred Hand” was sung. Our Sunday night services began with Scott Fields leading us in the hymn “The Way of the Cross Leads Home. Bro. John opened us in prayer and we all dismissed to our discipleship classes. Mike Fields did a good job teaching us our discipleship training lesson every Christians job from Acts 1:7-8. Every Christians job as a believer is to witness to family, friends, people who cross our paths, adversaries, enemies, and to the ends of the earth. Stephen Fields closed us in prayer. Our worship hour began with our special music. A beautiful song “How Long has it Been” beautifully sang by Dakota Warren, Kathy Hooper, Janice Chrisman and Jarid Warren. Bro. Keith Hamlin brought us our evening message from the book of Numbers 11:1-34 entitled Complaining. Brett McDonald dismissed us in prayer as the hymn “I Surrender All” was played.

Michelle Goad brought our childrens sermon. It was an update in technology about the computer, blackberry, and ipod giving her everything she needed for her day.

Kenton News The time has come once again to rev up the busses, pack the lunches, set the alarm clocks, and dust the classrooms for our students to return to school and begin a new year of expanding their knowledge. On Friday morning classes across the county will be back in session easing into the new school year with a half day. There will be more morning and afternoon traffic each weekday so everyone please drive very carefully and be mindful of all the precious children that will be on our streets and highways. Cindy Lamar was delighted to visit with relatives from both sides of her family last Monday in Hickman, Kentucky. Returning to Sassafras Ridge where she spent so many of her weekends as a child, Cindy had a great time with Doris and Sam Weatherly catching up with the goings on of her family from her maternal side. She was treated to a wonderful lunch that included many garden fresh dishes grown by her Aunt Doris including pickled Armenian cucumber.

By Cindy Lamar

After saying their good byes Cindy made her way just a few miles up the road to pay a surprise visit to her other aunt and uncle, Virginia and Elmer Williams. The afternoon was filled with joyous conversation and recollection of great memories they all share. As the saying goes, “Time flies when you’re having fun” and the time did indeed fly by leading to more reluctant good byes with plans already in place for future visits. Revival services are planned beginning August 8 and continuing through August 11 at the First Baptist Church at 6:30 nightly. The Reverend Don Whitt will be ministering the word of God with the Praise and Worship Team of Dyer First Baptist Church leading the congregation in musical worship. Make your plans now to attend and be greatly blessed and revived. Food for Thought: I’m glad to be a member of, a family beyond human blood. It’s large and spans the entire world and reaches back before Noah’s flood. Each member has it’s own function and place in the family, But we’re all made in His image and are loved by Him equally. One day we will have a reunion, In a land that we’ve never seen. Make plans now to be in attendance, It’s the best place that we’ll ever be! Prayer List: Ann Brooks, Preston White, Norma Simpson, Aaron Whitworth, David Stephenson, Regina Miller, Eurby Sanders, Henry Herane, Carol and Bobby Primrose, Easton Hopper, Elmer Williams, Jesse and Elaine Davidson, Freda Lamar, Lil Wardlow, Sam Weatherly, Paul Lee Williams, Clint McLodge, and Racine Hodges.

Bethpage By Joyce Brown Hello from Bethpage. It surely is hot way out here in the country. I will be so glad for cold weather to get here if for no other reason than to get rid of these pesky horse flies. Seems like everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy level is way down in the pits. But we always have a good time at church. We began our summer revival this Sunday. Bro. James preached the first sermon in the morning service. We enjoyed good music from our instrumentalists to begin worship. Special music was by Charles Perryman singing â&#x20AC;&#x153;God On The Mountain.â&#x20AC;? Bro. Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; text was from James 1:13-18. His sermon title was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Test Of Temptation.â&#x20AC;? Beth Cochran started the month with another

birthday. We were missing Natalie Taylor as she was a little under the weather. Get well soon Natalie. Sunday night Bro. James had two of his young friends from Whitehall, Tyler and Taylor join him in singing two songs for our special music time. The first was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Days of Elijahâ&#x20AC;? and then â&#x20AC;&#x153;Behold The Risen Lamb.â&#x20AC;? We really enjoyed having visitors with us. Bro. Larry Simmons preached Sunday night. He brought a powerful sermon from John 15:1-14. His title was â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Can Not Revive What You Do Not Have.â&#x20AC;? He challenged us all to check out our fruit production. Probably most of us have a crop failure, speaking for myself only. Congratulations go to Laneview Baptist Church, Kenton on their note burning

service they celebrated this first Sunday in August. They have paid off their building debt and what a great accomplishment that is. God is blessing in a mighty way. We are collecting school supplies for our associational WMU ministry project. We will have until Aug 15 to get those in for the Christmas in August tea the following Sunday. Also, another reminder to bring non perishable food items for our food pantry. Scripture to remember: Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Psalm 119:11.

UT Martin earns â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Best in the Southeastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; designation The University of Tennessee at Martin is one of the best colleges in the Southeast according to the nationally known education services company, The Princeton Review. UT Martin is one of 133 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best in the Southeastâ&#x20AC;? section of its Web site feature, â&#x20AC;&#x153;2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region,â&#x20AC;? that was posted Aug. 2 on PrincetonReview. com. The university has been named to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Best in the Southeastâ&#x20AC;? listing for eight consecutive years, since the recognition was initiated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am proud that The Princeton Review has again recognized UT Martin for providing a high-quality learning environment,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Tom Rakes, university

chancellor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Student input helped make this recognition possible through comments and feedback based on their experiences at the university. Receiving this designation for eight consecutive years is a compliment to faculty and staff who work hard to provide solid academic programming and outstanding student support.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pleased to recommend UT Martin to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree,â&#x20AC;? said Robert Franek, Princeton Reviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior vice president/publishing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We chose it and the other terrific institutions we name as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;regional bestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also take into account

what students at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for this project,â&#x20AC;? Franek added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lists.â&#x20AC;? The 133 colleges The Princeton Review chose for its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best in the Southeastâ&#x20AC;? designations are located in 12 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The Princeton Review also designated 218 colleges in the Northeast, 152 in the Midwest and 120 in the West as best in their locales. Collectively, the 623 colleges named â&#x20AC;&#x153;regional

best(s)â&#x20AC;? constitute about 25 percent of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2,500 four-year colleges. The Princeton Review does not rank the 623 colleges in its â&#x20AC;&#x153;2011 Best Colleges:
