McIlwain to direct ‘Southern Hospitality’ Nite Lite community theater is excited to announce the cast for the upcoming fall production, ‘Southern Hospitality.’ Johnny McIlwain, Jr. of Dyer will direct the show assisted by Mandi Armstrong with Beckie Jo Maxwell serving as the producer. This hysterical play is the final one in a trilogy that began with ‘Dearly Beloved,’ continued with ‘Christmas Belles’ and ends with more mayhem, drama and unbelievable situations with ‘Southern Hospitality.’ The Futrelle sisters are at it again while trying to save their dying town, Fayro, Texas. Their friends and family members all join together (well, as together as this dysfunctional group of people can) to do whatever it takes to impress the owner of a “salsa, I mean ‘salser’, factory” so that the factory will relocate to Fayro. Add to that a visit from see page 3

Mrs. Catherine Thomas celebrated her 99th birthday Tuesday, July 23rd at her home in Dyer. She received over 200 birthday cards from family, friends and former students. She had many visitors throughout the day and enjoyed a beautiful birthday cake. Thomas taught Home Economic for many years at Dyer High School.

Friends pitch in for MS goal In an effort to raise money and awareness about Multiple Sclerosis, Christy King and her son Carson pledged back in June to swim 10 laps every day in July at Pinecrest Golf Course for donations. Their goal was to raise $500 for MSAA. The pair exceeded their goal with a little help from family and friends. Below is King’s account of the month-long experience and the touching conclusion.

BY CHRISTY KING When I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in January 2007, I was completely taken aback. I had what? I was like most people when they hear the words Multiple Sclerosis. I automatically thought wheelchair, handicapped and disabled. I was 29, and shocked. But, see page 3

Football Hornets unveil new home BY CRYSTAL BURNS Just weeks away from the season opener, the South Gibson County High School football team unveiled its new home Sunday afternoon. Coaches, players, school officials, and fans gathered at the South Gibson County Field House to snip the ribbon on the impressive facility, which includes locker rooms for the Hornets and visiting teams, office space for coaches, and a state-of-the-art weight/ agility room. “We’re proud of it,” said Greer Lashlee, president of Lashlee-Rich Construction. Lashlee-Rich built South Gibson County High School and is taking care of additions to the school and also handled the most recent additions at Medina Middle School. The field house project was special for Lashlee, whose son Garrett is a senior on the see page 3

Another collision occurs at Broad, 4-lane Another collision has occurred at the intersection of West Broad Street and the four-lane (State Route 5) making a total of four collisions in the past two months. All four crashes have been the result of motorists on West Broad Street not yielding to oncoming traffic on the four-lane. On Tuesday, July 30th at 11:54 a.m. Dyer Police were dispatched to the scene of a multiple vehicle accident. A 1996 Freightliner tractor, owned by Reed Freight Service, driven by Robert L.

Insight & Opinion

Clayburn Peeples reports: I noticed a news release last week concerning Henry Ford’s 150th birthday celebration, held at Fair View, the former automobile baron’s estate in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford, of course, is considered to have invented the modern assembly line. Many people erroneously believe he invented the automobile as well, but he did not. He was, however, the first person to build and sell great numbers of them, and over the course of his life, he profoundly changed the course of history. He put the world on wheels when he introduced his famous Model T automobile. I was interested in reading about the meeting because my family and I were at the estate last summer. We were taking a Michigan vacation, and even though the estate mansion is closed to the public, the grounds were open, and we spent the better part of an afternoon roaming around them.

Visionary Henry Ford had a dark side

Ford was one of the most complex, confounding and controversial figures in American history. On one side of the historical ledger is the self-made man who left his father’s farm at the age of 16 to go to work as a machinist’s apprentice, then later became an engineer with Thomas Edison’s electric company, but whose passion was tinkering with gasoline engines and trying to hook them up to selfpropelled vehicles. His boss, Edison, encouraged him, and soon Ford started a company to build and sell cars. It failed. So did the next one he founded, but his third, the Ford Motor Company, founded in 1903, stuck around, and five years later, in 1908, he came up with a car that would change the world, the Model T. At $825, it was affordable, and he managed to lower the price every year. So many were sold (15,007,034 by

1927) that by 1918, one out of every two automobiles in America were Model T’s. Sales were so good that in many years the company doubled the previous year’s output, primarily because in 1913, Ford came up with an idea that would revolutionize all industry, everywhere. He began building his cars on moving conveyor belt assembly lines. This enabled the company to realize enormous increases in production and also resulted in all Model T’s coming off that line being painted black. Before that, Ford buyers could choose from several colors, including red, but black paint dried faster than other colors, thus, the assembly line could move faster if cars were black, and Ford was a fanatic about lowering the price of his automobiles, so all future Model T’s were black. But the next year he did something just as revolutionary. He doubled his workers’ pay to five dollars a day, a hundred and ten by today’s standards, and he shortened the work day to eight hours. Not surprisingly, this caused a mass exodus of Detroit’s best mechanics to Ford’s factory, so competitors had to raise their wages too. Ford was also one of the very few American industrialists of the era

who actively hired AfricanAmericans. He even hired women and handicapped men when doing so was uncommon. So that’s one side of the ledger. The other is not so inspiring. In spite of his many good, even heroic qualities, during the 1920’s and 30’s Ford was an unrepentant, anti-Semitic Nazi sympathizer. In the early 1920’s he published a series of newspaper articles filled with hatred for, and lies about Jews that was later published as a four-volume set of books. Those books inspired none other than Adolph Hitler, according to his own words, (He praised Ford in Mein Kamfp.) and Ford’s German factory continued making Nazi war supplies, even into the first year of America’s entry into WWII. In a U.S. Army report of 1945,

Ford’s German factory was described as an “arsenal of Nazism.” It had produced at least a third of all the trucks used by the German army during the war. Hitler’s admiration for Ford was so great he once had Ford’s photograph in his office, and in 1938 he awarded Ford Germany’s highest award for a noncitizen, the Grand Cross of the German Eagle. Benito Mussolini had been the previous recipient of the award. The next year, Ford’s company gave the Fuhrer a birthday present of 35,000 Reichmarks, about $12,000. So how do we combine these conflicting images of one of modern history’s most important figures? Do we cherish the memory of the farmboy inventor who revolutionized travel for all time, who made the wheel

do what it was invented to do, or do we shudder with disgust at the memory of one of the most powerful, and allegedly moral, men in America who spread hatred of Jews and tacitly encouraged and admired one of the most evil men in history. What about the Ford who may even have been, in part, an unwitting inspiration for the Holocaust? It does little good to suggest that he was a man of his times and that many other Americans and American companies were also playing footsie with the Nazis up to and even during World War II. When it came to his inventions, Ford was a visionary whose ideas changed the times and brought affordable travel to the modern world. What a terrible, terrible shame his sense of morality was stuck in the dark ages.

Letter to the Editor

Many legislators now reject Common Core standards Dear Editor, Not long ago an effort in the U.S. Senate to establish national education standards was voted down 99 to 1. Actually Congress has no constitutional authority to involve itself in education at all. But if President Obama can’t skin a cat one way he’ll find another. Governors acrossAmerica were enticed with huge amounts of government and private money to except Common Core. When money talks politicians listen. Tennessee received about 500 million dollars and I will stop short of calling it a federal government bribe. However that’s plenty of encouragement for jsut about any governor. The legislators in many states are now rejecting the Common Core standards.

Why? The bottom line is, most of Common Core is a pig in a poke. The testing for Common Core has not been developed and the testing will drive the curriculum. There will be no local control over the testing and less than 15 percent local control over curriculum in the future. If Common Core is allowed to stand in Tennessee, local control over what our children are taught will be out of the hands of parents or teachers. What Common Core becomes in the future is the most serious concern but in the future, parents and teachers will already have lost any influence over what our children are taught. A good friend and school board member in another part of the state put it this way.

What she has seen of the Common Core standards is that education is supposed to teach our children how to think. Common Core will teach them what to think. All I really need to know to be very skeptical is that control of education is moving to a higher level of government control. Whether this is a pig in a poke or a sack of rattlesnakes can only be answered in the future. There is likely to be a considerable fight in next year’s state legislative session over Common Core. If you want any say at all over your children’s education join the fight by contacting your State Legislators. David Nance Gibson County Patriots Trenton, Tn.

Comprehensive immigration reform is pro-growth, pro-agriculture To the Editor: Earlier this year, the U.S. Senate passed a commonsense immigration reform measure in a strongly bipartisan fashion. This was an important step in the right direction – especially for producers, farm workers and rural communities. The historic legislation passed by the Senate provides a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million people who are in our country today without authorization. They will have to go to the back of the line, pay fines and settle taxes they owe our nation. It would modernize the system that we use to bring skilled workers into the United States. And it would put in place the toughest border security plan that America has ever seen – building on steps that have reduced illegal border crossings to their lowest level in decades. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office found that the Senate bill would reduce the deficit over the next 20 years by nearly $850 billion, and the Social Security Administration estimates that this immigration bill would add nearly $300 billion to the Social Security

system in the next decade. This bill is also important for rural America. Recently, the White House economic team released a new report highlighting the positive economic benefits that commonsense immigration reform would provide for agriculture and rural communities. The report highlights research showing that without a stable workforce, America’s record agricultural productivity will decline in coming years. In Tennessee, for example, eliminating the immigrant labor force would cost between $33.4 million and $60.2 million in short-term production losses. The Senate bill addresses this concern by taking much-needed steps to ensure a stable agricultural workforce and a fair system for U.S. producers and farm workers. In particular, it would give qualifying farm workers an expedited path to earned citizenship, as long as they continue to work in agriculture. A new temporary worker program would replace the current H-2A visa program over time, and allow farm workers a three-year visa to work year-round in any agricultural job. This commonsense system wouldn’t just prevent a decline in production – it would grow the economy. Research highlighted in the White House report projects

that an expanded temporary worker program would increase both production and exports across our agriculture sector. Under the Senate proposal, USDA would play a greater role in implementing farm labor programs and ensuring that farmers and ranchers have all the information they need. As Congress continues to work on this issue, Secretary Vilsack and all of us at USDA are committed to working with lawmakers to be sure they have any technical assistance they might need to finalize these proposals. Immigration reform is very important for farmers, farm workers and communities across rural America. The majority of our agriculture workforce is made up of immigrants, and their hard work has helped America’s farmers and ranchers lead the world. To remain competitive and keep driving economic growth in rural America, we need rules that work. Rural America needs Congress to act as soon as possible to carry forward the work of the U.S. Senate and fix today’s broken immigration system.

Friends pitch in for MS from page 1 thanks to some great research and huge strides in therapy, those words don’t always have to be associated with Multiple Sclerosis. I decided to try and change the stigma of what MS means to most people by participating in a ‘Swim for MS’ fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis Association of America, by not only raising funds for a cure, but raising awareness of what MS is. When I set out to do this fundraiser, I had every intention to complete every lap. I even commissioned my son, Carson’s help. Although the rain has been a pest, that would not have kept me from completing my goal. However, the best made plans don’t always pan out. I found this out the hard way. In my quest to change the idea of what MS is, I felt determined to finish the month, not only having met my goal financially, but personally, as well. And that goal was to teach others that having an incurable illness doesn’t have to keep you from moving or living. It doesn’t have to keep you from hoping that there will be an eventual cure. Because Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune illness, therapies are immune suppressants, which makes it hard to battle off just normal, run of the mill sicknesses. To quote one of my doctors, “I am one cough or sneeze from pneumonia, even death.

Infections are part of MS that most people don’t even consider. Bladder and urinary tract infections are common for those with MS. However, I never considered it would keep me from completing my fundraising goal. During the first week and a half of the month I was on an antibiotic that warned me to stay out of sunlight so I just went later in the day. However, that antibiotic didn’t help. I was put on another antibiotic. After telling the doctor what I had been doing for the month, words I did not expect came from her mouth. “Do not get in that pool until you are better,” she said. Whoa, knowing that it usually takes me more than one round of antibiotic to heal from an infection, I was disappointed. What was I going to do? Had I not set out to do this to change the minds of people about MS? And wasn’t my being told to stay out of the pool proving the exact opposite? I was devastated to say the least. I allowed myself a few days to hang my head and decide what I was going to do. Was I a fraud? Should I send all the money raised back? I thought I was hiding it pretty good but my dilemma was obvious. And what I didn’t know was that the people closet to me saw my heartache. So, on July 20 my friend Becky Terry picked me up under the premise of having lunch at Pine Crest Golf Course. But, wow! What a surprise

that lay ahead of me. As we were standing in line at the checkout, I looked out onto the pool. I saw my niece and nephews. I was still confused, but Becky looked at me and said, “You are loved by a lot of people.” It slowly started to sink in. She told me to go out to the pool. And when I did, standing there were the most important people in my life. They had all gathered together to complete my goal for me. And one by one they each swam laps. Enough laps to make up for any I had missed and to finish the laps left for the month. I was so happy and proud and definitely surprised. I set out this month wanting to teach my community a lesson about how MS doesn’t have to keep you from moving. But in the end I was the one who learned the lesson. I learned that sometimes how we live our lives, the choices that we make, are the best examples of how we can set and achieve any goal. And although I wasn’t the one who physically swam the laps, my goal was met because of the wonderful people that I am blessed to be surrounded by each day. I am still slowly recovering from two infections but met and exceeded my $500 goal. I want to thank each person who donated. And a huge thank you to those who swam and helped me while I was down.

RIBBON CUTTING CELEBRATION - The South Gibson County football team unveiled its new home Sunday afternoon. Hornets head coach Scott Stidham, surrounded by former and current players, parents, and school officials cut the ribbon on the SGC Field House, which was built by Lashlee-Rich.

Football Hornets from page 1 SGC football team. “It was a little extra special,” Lashlee said. He complimented the school’s maintenance personnel and all of the contractors who worked on the field house for helping complete the project a month ahead of schedule. “With everyone that we worked with, there was an understanding that this thing had to be completed [on time],” he said. Kaatz Binkely Jones & Morris Architects designed the facility with input from the SGC coaching staff.

“We’re spoiled,” said Scott Stidham, SGC head football coach. “We talk about grace a lot. Grace is getting something you don’t deserve. We don’t deserve this.” 2013 marks just the fifth season for the Hornets and third playing a full varsity schedule. SGC played its first freshmen and JV games at Lions Park in downtown Medina. Players dressed out in the gym at the high school and were bussed to field. When the team moved to the Hornets’ Nest on campus for their first varsity season,

players still had to use the gym to dress out. Football equipment was stored in small outdoor buildings on campus. The final move into the field house was particularly special for the seniors, Stidham said. “Our seniors have been through what it was like to not have a home. We’ve almost been like gypsies,” he joked. “Our players are really excited.” South Gibson County kicks off the season Friday, Aug. 23 at 7:30 p.m. with a non-district game against Camden.

Caton is new City Recorder from page 1 put faces with names. My granddaddy, Ray Barber, was the Chief of Police

in Kenton. He and my grandmother raised me and we didn’t get out a lot,” said Caton.

Caton enjoys spending time in her garden and riding the motorcycle with her husband. She also enjoys fishing but doesn’t get the opportunity to fish often. “We are proud to have Ann and are looking forward to working with her,” said Rutherford Mayor Larry Davidson. “She will be a great asset to our town.”

Rutherford 1st Baptist By Katherine Blankenship As I sit here writing the news, there is a song playing in the background, “God has another plan.” Thing happen in our lives, we don’t understand but he does! Mrs. Dora Walker went home to be with the Lord last week, after several months of going back and forth to the hospital. The choir sang “Til the Storm Passes By” for the special Sunday morning. Brother Jason’s message was “God’s Plan: It’s not Untrust” Romans 9: 1924. Sunday evening we looked at Genesis 2, “Marriage, Feminism and Homosexuality.”

It was good to see George Boucher back in church after hip surgery. Joan Capps is improving at home. Those having birthdays this week are Allahna Raybon, Jason Davidson, Tommie Sue Keathley, Steven Pitcher, Bobby Wilson, Bernice Witherington and Evan Adkins. If you are looking for a home church, we invite you to come visit with us. Something to think about; when you sneer and point your finger of scorn, three fingers are pointing back at you. Until next week, God bless.

Sunday School for Shut-Ins By Mary King When you’re ready please read Joshua 1:7-9. The Word of God tells us over and over again not to be afraid. When Josiah was king, he was warned by the written Word. When he inquired about the future, he was told that judgment would be held back until after his death (2 Kings 22). Israel didn’t want to hear the harbinger, but Amos was God’s mouthpiece to warn them. They didn’t like the message, so they hated the messenger, Amos (Amos 7:10, Acts 3-4, 1 Corinthians 10:13). The evil priest wants to keep idolatry. Fear was leading before and now more fear is leading to more idolatry. Sound familiar? It was the same kind of fear that had begun the sins of Jeroboam #1 in generations before. Jeroboam #1 was afraid the people of Israel would leave him and return to Rehoboam. Fear led to idolatry: Jeroboam #1 had been afraid the people would go back to Judah. He was willing to do anything to keep people on his side. He formed calves for worship. Can you hear Jesus saying, “Offenses will

come but woe to one who sent and caused the offense?” (Matthew18: 7, 26 and 24, Mark 14:21, Luke 22:22) Bad things and tragedy will happen to everyone, but woe to the instigator. “Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak and hold not thy peace: For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city” Acts 18:9-10 (KJV). And God told Isaiah: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded; they shall be as nothing, and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shault seek them, and shault not find them, eve n them that contended with thee, they that war against thee shall be as nothing and as a thing of nought. For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee” Isaiah 41:1013 (KJV).

New Hope News By Shirley Hooper On Wednesday evening our minister, Brother Corey Meggs led Bible study and prayer meeting. Topic was “Mission of the church” from Matthew 29:18-20 (The Great Commission), Mark 16:15, Luke 24: 46 and 47 and Acts 1; 18. The scope of all commission is our core value, which is making disciples, The word ‘all’ is used frequently so it is for all of us. We are to keep the light shining in the church. Our priorities determine the direction the church is going. Our Lord has promised to be with us if we do what He directs. Sunday morning we were delighted to welcome Ashley Cooley as she did the sign language for two lovely songs. Brother Corey spoke on the book of Ruth. This continues our study on “Turning point.” Title of the sermon was “Wander away from God.” What happens to believers who wander away from God? We reviewed the story of the prodical son, you are really hungry when the pigs’ slop looks good! The story of Ruth took place in the time of Judges when each man did what was right in his own eyes. Due to famine in Bethlehem Elimalech, his wife, Naomi and their 2 sons went to Moab. The sons married there. Father and both sons died. Naomi was returning to Bethlehem, told her daughter-in-law to go back to their homes. Orpha did not Ruth would not leave

Naomi. In Ruth 1: 16 and 17 she promised her life to Naomi. In Bethlehem while Ruth gleaned in the field she met Boaz who was their kinsman-redeemer. They fell in love and married. Their son, Obed was grandfather of King David, he is also an ancestor of Joseph whose wife Mary bore Jesus. (Matthew1) Did you ever think if Naomi had not returned to Bethlehem, Christ might not have been born there? Sunday evening for our special music Brother Andy King sang “I am satisfied with Jesus.” Brother Corey’s message “The Transfiguration” was taken from Mark 9:212, Matthew 17:1-13, and Malachi 4: 4 and 5. Jesus took Peter, James and John who were the inner core of Jesus’ ministry. They went up on a mountain. Jesus was transfigured, clothes dazzling white. Elijah and Moses appeared talking to Jesus. Moses represented the presence of God. “This is my beloved Son, listen to Him” was heard out of the cloud. Many years later Peter retold this in II Peter 1:16-21. Remember the many on our prayer list and in the hospitals. If you are going to be used by God, He will take you through a multitude of experience that are not meant for you at all. They are meant to make you useful in his hands. Oswald Chambers.

Cloras Chapel By Robin McNeil It was certainly a busy week for Cloras Chapel last week. Bible study is every Wednesday night beginning at 5:45 p.m. with prayer service. All are welcome and invited to come. The youth had a weiner roast and candy apple sale Saturday at the church. They would like to thank everyone for their support. It was a success! Sunday morning Sunday School was great! Elder Bush McNeil and Sister Peggy Bonds were the teachers. Pastor Myles delivered an inspiring message Sunday morning titled, “Nothing but the Blood.” It is the blood of Jesus that saves and sustain us. Praise God! The Sanctuary Choir really did sing and the Praise Team had four people to sing and they did a wonderful job. Rev. Jeremy Myles and family journeyed to Murray, Ky. They reported having a good time and reported that Rev. Jeremy Myles really did do some preaching.

Raven Austin, better known as Bunches, directed the Praise Team and did a good job. We are so proud of our Praise Team and all who make up the Cloras Chapel Family. God is so good! We were saddened to hear the news of the passing of Sister Adean Carpenter. She is the sister of Sister Verdell Fisher and a member of Cloras Chapel. Funeral will be Thursday at 1 p.m. at Cloras Chapel. Visitation will be from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. We say to the family hold your head up high and thank God for the time you had with your love one. She will surely be missed! Pastor Myles will be preaching at New Smyrna Baptist Church on Tuesday night at their revival. Time is at 7 p.m. Please keep praying for our sick and shut in. Sometmes we are weak but God is our strength and a help in the time of trouble. Cloras Chapel says: “Have a good week and we thank God for blessing us!”

Pharmacy & Your Health How to Manage a Fast Heartbeat Tachycardia is the medical term for a condition where the heart beats much faster than normal. A normal heart can beat anywhere from 60-100 beats per minute. In tachycardia, the heart rate is increased due to an increased stimulation of electrical activity within the heart’s conduction system. People who have faster heart rate may experience dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath, or a sudden sensation in the chest known as a heart palpitation. Tachycardia can be caused by a heart abnormality, drinking excessive alcohol, smoking, fever, or an overactive thyroid gland. To help manage tachycardia, most people will take a prescribed anti-arrhythmic medication. While there are four classes of anit-arrhythmic medications, most people will either take a calcium channel blocker such as dilitiazem (Cardizem) or a beta blocker such as metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol). These medications help reduce the heart rate. Since the risk of a blood clot is very high in people with certain types of tachycardia, many people may also be on a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin) or dabigatran (Pradaxa). Coumadin users may need periodical blood tests and maintain a consistent diet with regards to food rich vitamins K. If severe, a pacemaker may be surgically implanted under the skin.

From the Preacher’s Desk By Jerry Bell

Good day to you all. I pray that God continues to bless you. I hope that you read my article for last week about “Who were the wickies?” They were the people who lived and took care of the lighthouses along our coastal shores. They helped guide the ships into port safely with a steady beam of light from atop the lighthouse. This was an important job for them, with huge responsibility. They had to keep the light shining for the ships to be able to navigate the shallow waters. They gained the name “wickies” because they were always dirty and filthy from the smoke coming from the oil burning in the lamps. There is a song in most hymnals with the title, “Let the Lower Lights Be Burning.” You may have one at home or church so you can look at all the words. Space did not allow me to print the whole song. We will take a look at the stanzas of this song so we can better understand the words. When growing up as a Christian, I did not fully understand the meaning of this song until I heard it preached from the pulpit. The first stanza reads: “Brightly beams our Father’s mercy, from the lighthouse evermore; But to us He gives the keeping of the lights along the shore.” The Bible speaks of God, that He is the Light. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Then God said, “Let there be light, and there was the light”. (Genesis 1:1, 3) The psalmist David tells us that “The Lord is my light and my salvation.” (Psalm 27:1) Again David says that “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119: 105). We as Christians are also a “light.”

Jesus talking to His disciples says; “You are the light of the world, a city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16) Then the question comes to us, “Am I that light or has my light gone out.” Next the song talks of “our Father’s mercy.” Mercy is simply compassion, (kindness) and forbearance shown to the offender. Folks, we are the one who sins and it is only through Gods mercy and grace that we can be forgiven. In Titus 3:5-6 we read; “not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior.” God is that great lighthouse that shines for evermore. The psalmist tells us; “For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.” (Psalm 100:5). God through His Son Jesus gives the keeping of the lights along the shore. His light will never go dark. The “wickies” had to trim their lamps and keep them burning. Let us all keep our lights burning so that some lonely, struggling person can see God’s light in us and be saved from this old wicked world in which we live. Next week we will take a look at stanza two. I hope that you have and will enjoy these series of lessons. God bless.

Dyer High School Class of ‘78 held 35th reunion The Dyer High School Class of 1978 held their 35th class reunion on Saturday, August 3 at the home of Royce Wayne Barron in Jackson. Of the 42 classmates to graduate, 13 were in attendance. The class decided upon graduation not to wait 10 years before holding a reunion but to have one after five years. This tradition has continued with a reunion held every five years. For this informal reunion, Barron opened his beautiful home to his classmates with the guests gathering

both inside and out to catch up with old friends. Great classic rock music from the 70s was playing throughout the home and outdoors on the patio. The meal was catered and consisted of pork tenderloin, green beans almandine, delicious new potatoes, and salad with a strawberry vinaigrette dressing. The desserts were provided by class members Lorrie Johnson and Cindy Prescott. Including spouses and guests, there were 22 in attendance. Tommy Douglass traveled the furthest coming in from Knoxville. Rickey Kerr

came in from Nashville and Pat Mosley from Memphis. Dyer residents attending were Lorrie Jewell Johnson, Cindy Bates Prescott, Danny Gathings, Jan Comstock Reynolds, and Tim Sullivan. Cindy Brown East of Rutherford, Valerie McFarland Allison of Chickasaw, and Tina Barkley Butler, Teresa Griffin Cain and Royce Barron of Jackson, also attended. Since graduation, the class has lost three members. Each were fondly remembered and missed by their classmates. The DHS class of 1978 is already looking forward to their next get-together!

THE QUICKS TO PERFORM AT SALEM UNITED METHODIST CHURCH The Quicks will be performing at Salem United Methodist Church in Rutherford on Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 1 p.m. Everyone is invited.

Bethpage News By Joyce Brown What a blessed day we had at Bethpage this Sunday. The weather was beautiful, everyone seemed eager to be in the Lord’s house as we began our Summer Revival time. The most magnificent arrangement of yellow roses graced the front, thanks to our resident florist, Lynn Greene. Little Miss Malone Grace Littleton made her first appearance at church and was adored by everyone. Beth Cochran had a birthday and we sang for her. Then serious worship began with Tina and Janice playing a moving version of ‘Amazing Grace’ using the chimes and other musical interpretation. Dietra sang ‘I Believe in a Hill Called Mount Calvary’ for our special. My, what a voice! Bro. Jeff’s message title was “He Blessed Him There” with his

scripture from Genesis 32:24-32. Following the sermon we adjourned to the fellowship hall for a wonderful meal. Sunday night Bro. Jeff preached from Jeremiah 18:1-7 on the subject ‘Down to the Potter’s House.’ He did such a great job on this portion of God’s word. Logan had our special Sunday night singing ‘Worthy is His Name.’ Keep it up, Logan. We are missing some of our faithful folks due to health problems and pray that they will be better soon and able to be back with us. Joe and Diane Jenkins had their son and his family with them at church. Glad to see them. There were other visitors in our midst and I did not know all of them but want them to know they and anyone else choosing to come our way that you are always welcome.

Golden Agers July 31 was a good day for gathering for the 17 Golden Agers and guest Shelia Parman, daughter of Elizabeth McKnight, at the Dyer FBC as they met to enjoy food and fellowship and to say a sad goodbye to Michael Barnett, the new minister of youth at Bethsaida Baptist Church, Ellerslie, Georgia. Barnett shared details of his “calling” to his new ministry. The Executive Pastor Todd Sullens, of the Georgia church now, had been Brother Michael’s mentor 12 years ago when he served as youth ministry during Brother Michael’s junior year and part of his senior year of high school. In the search for filling the open position at Bethsaida, Brother Sullens had thought of Brother Michael from the beginning. When the search committee did not feel led to any of the people whose

Sympathy goes out to the Kernodle sisters, Virginia, Barbara and Juanita and their families in the loss of their mother whose funeral was held on Sunday. Also, Brenda Griggs and family had their Aunt Norene’s funeral on Saturday. Both ladies were at advanced age and ready to meet their Lord so it was a celebration in Heaven over these two departures. Our teachers are getting ready and the big yellow buses will be cranking up in a few days for school to start again. Can you believe the Summer break is over? Scripture to ponder: Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is –His good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2. God bless you and see you next week.

By Alice Ernest

resumes they examined from January to April, Brother Sullens called Brother Michael Barnett. The committee called again in June and Lydia and Brother Michael sought earnestly the Lord’s will in their decision. It was so difficult to leave a work and people that you have loved so deeply at Dyer FBC. However, everything fell into place so quickly. Lydia will be teaching science in Calvary Christian School at Calvary Baptist Church and their daughter Zoe will attend 1st grade there with very reasonable tuition since her mother is a teacher. They will live in Columbus in the only 3-bedroom apartment available in their gated community which had actually been reserved by the manager for himself and his family until the family changed plans. The housing is ample for the parents,

Zoe, Gavin and their little brother. Many prayers with those for the Barnett’s were in order for the day including continued, intense prayers for Brother Legg, Jerry Robinson, Brother Jim Madden, Jackie Vaughan, and Jean and Ronnie Bynum. For the family of Marcella Freeman in their grief, prayers were offered. In a note, Geneva Ward expressed her thankfulness for words of condolence for her in the loss of her sister. Music included ‘Jesus Loves Me’ and ‘Because He Lives’ led by Carolyn Temple and Anne Thompson and ‘Just a Closer Walk with Thee’ by Kenny McEwen. Golden Agers presented a basket of cards with words of affection and God-speed for his upcoming ministry from each of the Golden Agers that were present.

DHS CLASS OF 78 HOLDS REUNION - Thirteen members of Dyer High School Class of 1978 gathered on Saturday, August 3rd for their 35th year class reunion. The reunion was held in the home of classmate Royce Wayne Barron in Jackson. The class has remained in close contact having a reunion every five years since graduation.

North Union I really appreciate all of you who were able to attend at least one of our revival services last week. Bro. Joel Pigg did a wonderful job delivering God’s word to us. Members of his church were very supportive and attended nightly. His wife Suzanne was very nice and I enjoyed getting to know her. They are motorcycle enthusiasts and that interested Bro. Don. He has been threatening to buy a three wheeled motorcycle for a few years now. This only added fuel to his fire. We appreciate Bro.

By Connie Cooper

Chris filling the pulpit this week. He continued somewhat along the theme that Bro. Pigg began with a message Sunday evening from 2 Samuel 11 concerning making “what is important to God, important to us.” His morning message was taken from 2 Chronicles 7:14. It was entitled “Acceptance, Repentance and Results.” Michelle Goad shared a message with the children. She told the children the story of Jesus and the woman at the well to whom He offered “Living Water.” Michelle didn’t

have any living water so she had to use an energy drink for effect. I think the children got the point. We want to wish Sondra Eddings and Julianne Moore a Happy Birthday this week. I hope you will visit us at North Union one day soon. We have plenty going on especially with our children and youth. On Wednesdays the adults are continuing in a study of the Book of Acts. And of course, the Gospel is shared both during Sunday School and the worship hour. Have a great day and I’ll see you in church on Sunday.

In pool play they lost their first game 7 to 5 to the Predators form Rutherford County, but came back strong to defeat West TN Rock-Its from Dyer County 11 to 1. In the last game

of pool play the Blaze defeated the Xpress from Cape Girardeau MO 6 to 1. Poynor hit a solo homerun in the fifth inning for the Blaze. With the two wins in the pool play the Blaze moved to the double-elimination portion of the tournament. The Blaze won all three of their games in the double-

elimination World Series To urnament, beating MC Rage from Muhlenberg County, KY 7 to 1, Predators 8 to 0, and the Xpress 11 to 0 in the championship game.

CRASH VICTIM AIRLIFTED - Hospital Wings had to be called to the scene of a vehicle crash on Highway 77 in Dyer. One person involved in the crash was taken by the helicopter to the Med in Memphis.

Salem Methodist Church By the time this issue reaches your hands, many of you are rejoicing over the fact that your sweet angels are back in school, while some of you are drying your tears after saying goodbye to your preschooler or kindergartener. I am among both categories as I have a fourth and second grader as well as a preschooler. It’s always hard to send them off, but know that God is holding each of His children in His hands and will take care of them. We had a great morning at church with great music and even better preaching. There will be an Open House at the parsonage, Sunday, August 18th from 2-4. After the horrific tornado of 2006 took our last parsonage, we were blessed to be able to build back a beautiful parsonage for our future pastors to enjoy. Both congregations are invited to come by and see just how tidy

Bro. Mike is! The youth group will be traveling to Venture River Water Park, Saturday, August 17th. Departure time will be 8:30 a.m. The youth group meets every Wednesday at 6 p.m. and we welcome any child who wants to hear of the love of Christ to join us. Choir practice meets on Wednesday as well at 7 p.m. We will welcome The Quicks on August 11th at 1 p.m. We will have finger foods during this time as well. Please make plans to attend. Bro. Mike’s message was taken out of Matthew 10:2627 and Mark 4:21-23 “Secret Sins.” It was a message many preachers refuse to preach for fear of stepping on a few toes, but that’s what we need as a people if we are to live the lives we were told to live by Jesus Christ. Everyone sins; even the most perfect among us, but no one will enter Heaven

Lowrance Chapel church of Christ asks that you continue to pray for Mark Paschall, James White, Max Betts, Jean Bell, Modeen Pierce, Ann Pate, Jean Harris, Carlene Meadows, Carlene’s sister Ann, and Ann Tidwell. We invite you to attend our Gospel Meeting August 11th13th with Bro. Larry Powers from the Sharon. Have you ever wondered why there are so many denominations in the “Christian” religion? If there is only one God, and only one Lord Jesus Christ, and only one Bible, why are there so many denominations? Each of these groups have doctrines and traditions that are peculiar to that particular denomination. Did you know that the Bible strictly condemns this practice? While some suggest that it is not possible or necessary for all to believe the same things and teach the same things, God has commanded precisely that.1 Corinthians 1:10-13: Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the

By Amy Bennett without first accepting Christ into their heart, no matter how perfect they may live here on earth. Wherever you are right now in your life, just know that God will meet you there. He will take off those heavy chains and wipe away every stain you have and give you life. My daddy, Wayne Tosh, celebrated his birthday this week. We hope you are blessed with many more! Nancy Davis will be traveling to Mississippi State this week to start a new chapter in her life. We ask for traveling mercies for her and her family and ask God to guide her through her days at college. Those needing our prayers this week are: Benny Hopper, Leroy Brandon, Martha Halford, Margie Jones, James Neil Floyd, Christy Friar, Arthur Brown, and the family of Ms. Dora Walker.

same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement. For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?” If every denomination rejectedtheirpeculiardoctrines and traditions to follow only the New Testament pattern for the church and faith, how many confessions would there be? Only one! Would we not then be obeying the part of the Holy Scriptures we have just read? Why is it important to follow only the New Testament pattern for the church? To understand this, we must first recognize that we will be judged for eternity based entirely upon what is written in the New Testament. Jesus said, “He that rejecteth me,

and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day” (John 12:48). The teaching of the New Testament is the message of Jesus Christ. Although he did not teach all things while He was on the earth, the inspired apostles and writers wrote the words of Christ after he ascended into heaven. The Old Testament was written at the direction of the Holy Spirit. “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:2021). So, the New Testament was given by the Holy Spirit also. “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come,” (John 16:12-13).

Valve Replacement Without Open Heart Surgery Helps Gertrue Barr Maintain Her Independence

Gertrue Barr had been marked by her independence — mowing her lawn and taking care of her flowerbeds into her 90s.


“TAVR has really been a help to me and I just hope if somebody has heart trouble they do attend to it before they wait as long as I did.”

Using the new minimally invasive procedure, a specially trained team of physicians used a catheter to deliver a replacement valve through a artery in her groin. Before this procedure, her heart valve condition would probably have been considered inoperable. Gertrue recovered quickly and a few days later was cooking in her kitchen. “Now I can go all over the house,” Gertrue says. “I do my dusting and my window treating... anything I want to do.”


Gertrue’s Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure was the first ever performed at West Tennessee Heart & Vascular Center in Jackson-Madison County General Hospital.


Then, at age 91, she began to get weak, and needed to rest after walking from one room to another in her home — until she learned about a new heart valve procedure. Sports+ Physical Therapy 29 Garrett Dr. 731-783-0263
