Brad Thompsom

Thompson seeks to serve WTN familes as state senator Brad Thompson, a longtime community advocate for Northwest Tennessee, has formally announced his candidacy for State Senate District 24 citing his rural west Tennessee values along with his career of strengthening the area’s infrastructure and growing the local economy. The district includes Benton, Carroll, Gibson, Henry, Obion and Weakley counties. A civic leader, farmer, educator and Bible class teacher, Thompson said he will focus on results for working families, and he’ll work across party lines to ensure that each county in the district has the best opportunity for jobs growth. “People have seen enough partisan bickering,� Thompson said. “I’ll put politics aside to make see page 3

County wants more state prisoners BY STEVE SHORT There was a time when Gibson Co. leaders bemoaned the burden of housing state prisoners. That has changed. Now county leaders are looking to put more state prisoners in the Correctional Complex in Trenton, because the state has increased the reimbursement funds that are paid to counties that house state prisoners. Commissioner Larry Kimery, Chairman of the county’s Correctional Complex Committee, spoke to the County Commission recently about the fees paid by the state to counties for housing prisoners, often due to overcrowding in state prisoners. Gibson Co. had been receiving about $70,000 per month for the cost of keeping state prisoners. But that amount jumped to over $90,000 in August because the state began paying a higher amount, $37 per day for state prisoners. “Starting July 1, the county received an increase in the state boarding fees see page 3

BY DR. JAMES T. HARRIS When I think of my hometown of Rutherford, one name that automatically pops into my mind is Pamela Hickman Flowers. Ms. Pam was such a positive influence in the community of Rutherford and touched so many lives. Being very civic minded, she always made time to give back to the community that she loved so much. A kind and caring person, she had a unique way of letting her friends know she loved them as part of her family. Pam Hickman was raised in Rutherford, where she completed high school, attended Memphis State University (The University of Memphis) and returned to Rutherford to teach. She made her home and spent her final years by the homeplace of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Reece Hickman. I am sure that if Ms. Pam were here to tell the story, she would say, “Well there is no place on

earth I would rather live!� Years after marrying her love, Jim Flowers, Ms. Pam stopped teaching on a full time basis, yet she always had time to teach others. She served in so many capacities in the town of Rutherford. Not only did she operate the city water plant, she served the town as city judge in the municipal court. She was active in the management and maintenance of the city swimming pool. As a member of First Baptist Church, she could be found greeting her neighbors each Sunday morning. In addition to these activities, Ms. Pam also operated a frame shop and had a vast love of collecting. She also loved animals, which was evidenced by her commitment to the annual pet show during the Davy Crockett Days Celebration. Each person that entered his or her pet see page 3

Clean, green, efficient, abundant: The future is here at GCUD BY DANNY JONES - THE GAZETTE “The future is here at Gibson County Utility District,� General Manager Pat Riley said this week. “We have expanded our fleet of compressed natural gas vehicles (CNGs) to one F-150 and two F-250s. The F-150 can be purchased now from Golden Circle Ford. All of these trucks operate on both compressed natural gas and gasoline. When one fuel runs out, it switches over to the other fuel without a problem,� Riley said. Riley recently attended a conference in Gatlinburg, leaving Trenton in a vehicle operating on CNG. He drove 375 miles on a tankful of CNG or 20-gasoline gallon equivalent (GGEs). When he returned to Nashville on the return trip, he stopped by Piedmont Natural Gas Company where they have a public CNG station and filled his CNG tank up (17 gallons) for $29. Their price to the public is $1.75 per gallon. “This station is getting so much business from AT&T and others that they are going to build another public/private station in the Nashville area to accommodate all the traffic,� Riley

Pam Flowers

said. Riley stated that GCUD plans to convert the majority of its fleet over to CNG/gasoline within the next five years. “We are primarily going to use CNG only and use gasoline as a backup. We fill our gasoline storage tank six times a year at a cost of approximately $10,000 per fill up. Over time we will save approximately $40,000 to $50,000 per year by using less gasoline and more CNG. The average life of one of our service trucks is about 10 years. The incremental cost of the trucks will be paid back in the first five years of the truck’s life, based on the mileage of the truck,� he said. “We also will experience less maintenance on the truck with less frequent oil changes and less wear and tear on the engine of the truck. The last five years of the truck’s life will save GCUD a lot of money and keep our overhead down,� he added. He went on to say, “The bigger benefit is that we help the country’s cause of importing less foreign oil and we see page 2

BY CRYSTAL BURNS Gibson County Special School District board members voted last Thursday to proceed with retrofits at Yorkville and Dyer schools that will create safe spaces at Yorkville, Dyer Elementary and Dyer Junior High. Terry Cunningham, system Finance Director, said the district needs to be ready to begin construction as soon as school is dismissed in May 2013. He recommended the board authorize Lashlee-Rich, Construction Manager, to begin with Yorkville in 2013 and start the projects in Dyer in May 2014. FEMA has approved the retrofits, issuing contracts for Yorkville June 13, 2012June 12, 2015 and Dyer July 24, 2012-July 23, 2015. see page 3

Child rescue a shining moment for county BY STEVE SHORT When an 8 year-old boy went missing in Gibson Co. recently, officials pulled together in an extraordinarily cooperative way and conducted a successful rescue mission. County officials praised the joint effort of several agencies that resulted in the rescue of the young boy in the Flowers family near Trenton on August 25. see page 11

Insight & Opinion

Clayburn Peeples reports: A few months ago I found myself caught live in a place I wouldn’t normally be caught dead, WalMart on a Saturday night. Nothing against WalMart, mind you. I’m a huge WalMart fan. I love shopping there. But I try to avoid the place on Saturday nights. On this occasion, however, we had run out of something we had to have before morning, so I drove over and got there about nine-thirty. I had just picked up a bag of barbecue potato chips (might as well treat myself as long as I was there) and was headed down the middle of the store in the direction of the paint thinner when a woman pushing a very full cart about ten feet away from me turned

back and yelled at a small girl following from about 60 feet away. “I told you to keep up,” she shouted. “If you don’t get up here right now, I’m going to whip your . . . !” She didn’t say, “bottom.” Now I’m sure she was tired and cranky, and perhaps she, unlike me, had worked hard all day long, and I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt as to why she had a four-year-old girl out at that time of the night. Life is an incredible struggle for many, many people these days, and not everybody has someone at home to leave the kids with when the groceries have to be bought. But she shouldn’t have used that word, in that way, in a public place. Nobody should. I thought about her the

It’s time to swear off swearing other day when I read about a Massachusetts town which has passed an ordinance imposing a twenty-dollar fine for swearing in public. The local merchants’ association had pushed for it because they were fed up with foul mouthed teenagers driving their customers away. Not surprisingly, the ordinance was met with outrage among civil liberties/ free speech advocates. The town council was denounced across the board by media outlets, all the way from Fox News to The Washington Post and the Massachusetts ACLU. Demonstrators, one from as far away as New Mexico, staged protests in which they waived vulgarly worded placards and demanded the right to turn the air blue with their “freedom

of expression.” A similar outcry erupted in Ogden, Utah after the city council there proposed a “sportsmanship” ordinance for its city parks that prohibited the use of “obscene or profane language” at ballfields and parks in the city. The goal of the ordinance was to “encourage more civility and further the atmosphere of civility at recreational events where spectators, officials and parents can feel comfortable.” Good luck to them, but I’m not optimistic. Ever since the Supreme Court ruled (several years ago) that government cannot prohibit public speech just because it contains profane or vulgar language, communities all across the country have wrestled with this problem, and most of them have failed or just given up the effort. And it shows. If you don’t believe me, just walk through a mall or go to a ball game. Anywhere. It wasn’t always like this in America. Even before he was elected our first president, George Washington, in 1775, banned cursing among his troops. “The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing,” he

said, “is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it.” But that, as they say, was then. Now, vulgar language is referred to as “colorful.” Just as our clothing has become crude and cheap, even in formerly formal situations, so has our language. Swearing in public is now so commonplace that most people don’t even raise an eyebrow when they hear it, and the accepted definition of “free speech” is so expansive, one risks being called a reactionary prude by even complaining about it at all. But the fact that we may be able to legally use such language in front of others doesn’t mean we should. It may be that the people trumpeting the rights of vile mouthed people to curse in front of our children aren’t really as representative of our real values as the media would have us believe. Several studies have been done in the last few years on profanity in the workplace, for example, and the results might surprise you. Among employers, 81 percent believe cursing calls an employee’s professionalism into question. Seventy percent

believe it indicates a lack of control and a lack of maturity. More than half say that when employees swear it makes them seem less intelligent. Sixty-four percent say they think less of employees who swear, and 57 percent said they would be less likely to promote employees who swear at work. Apparently even employers who swear themselves think less of employees who do likewise. Other studies, outside the workplace, show that at least half the people you encounter will be offended to some degree if you swear in their presence. Swearing endangers your social relationships; it makes many people uncomfortable being around you, and it contributes to the decline of civility in America. And count on this; it offends more people than you realize, even many of those who say they don’t mind it. And even if you think it doesn’t harm you professionally or socially, it’s still a good idea to watch what you say. I mean, heck, if for no other reason, there might be ladies within hearing range. You do remember ladies, don’t you?

Clean, green, efficient from page 1 also do our part in providing a cleaner environment. Natural gas only has one carbon atom while gasoline has eight and diesel has 14. We also have an abundant supply (upwards of 120 years) of natural gas in the lower 48 states today.” He urges you to take the time to go to ww.cngprices. com and look at all the public/private natural gas stations that are in America today. They are identified by a colored rectangle. Inside the rectangle you will see the price that is being charged per GGE. The prices ranged from 66-cents per gallon to $2.65 per gallon. “The national average of gasoline is $3.80 (some stations are over $4 per gallon) while the national average of CNG

is $2.14, and it is American fuel,” he emphasized. By comparison, the Nissan Leaf runs on a 600-pound battery that costs $10,000 to replace. The replacement is a function of the mileage driven and the tendency of batteries to weaken over time due to use. It usually is time to replace a battery after seven years of use. The car takes a 240 volt charge over eight hours to run it 100 miles. As the battery weakens, your mileage range does down. In addition, you have to burn more coal to make electricity that operates the car. “So, while the car is emission free, all you have done is transfer the emissions from the car to the coal burning power plant and the environment is actually dirtier. This is

why there is so much talk about clean technology but it is very expensive. These vehicles in reality are not ‘green,’” Riley said. “The future is here at GCUD and we will continue to keep ‘your’ gas company clean, green, and efficient. Soon General Electric will be introducing a home refueling unit, where you will be able to fill your car off your gas station at your home. They plan on selling this unit for $500. This will change everything,” he said. “Until next time, please keep your attention on our nation’s development of our own abundant American natural gas and the energy independence it will be our country—natural gas, America’s energy,” he concluded.

Letter to the Editor: I started laying back for my old age in the 50’s. In 1980 when I retired, I had paid $119,900 plus into Social Security. In the 50’s Social Security bailed out the railroad, in the 60’s they bailed out Medicare, in the 70’s they bailed out Chrysler. No one has offered to repay these debts. In the 90’s another organization was bailed out, but I can’t remember whom.

I don’t live, I only exist

my income went down and my tax went up. My income is much less than the average salary in Tennessee. I am retired military but it seems like only a few people really care that I risked my life to help keep my country free. Because of the low income of the enlisted military personnel I think they should be exempt from paying tax. I don’t live, I only exist. Walter Dyer Dyer, TN

Dyer needs to clean up Seasonal work was the norm for Dyer prior to Brown Shoe Company coming to town. Many citizens left the farms for a regular job paying livable wages. As a result the town grew, downtown was vibrant, and people took pride in their property. A look at the town now is disheartening. Look at downtown with its dilapidated buildings, abandoned houses around town, and clutter around many others. It is embarrassing to admit our downtown looks as it does to people both inside and outside the community. The mayor explains the

More recently we tax payers bailed out Ford, Chrysler, and General Motors. How much more can we stand? The present system does not work.

Laws are available to remedy these conditions; however, apathy prevails. Many citizens do not have pride in the appearance of their property; consequently, laws exist to force their respect. The mayor and aldermen should exercise their duty to correct this situation. A fresh political viewpoint may be in order to force the appropriate action. The construction of

Compare the appearance of Dyer with Trenton, Rutherford and Kenton where leaders have been active in the beautification of their downtowns and the eradication of houses around town, which do not meet code standards.

Mini-tractor pull comes to WTN Expo Center BY HILL ROGERS The West TN MiniTractor Pulling association is coming to the West TN Expo Center Saturday, September 29th at 5 p.m. Seventy-five to 100 pullers will be coming to the Expo

Center from Kentucky, and middle and west Tennessee. Classes will include two kids classes, two stock classes, a stock altered class, and four different outlaw classes. Admission is only $5 for

adults. Children under six are free. We hope everyone will come out and support the Expo Center by eating your supper at the concession stand and enjoy an evening of family entertainment.

GCSD prepares for retrofits from page 1 FEMA will pay $355,901 in Yorkville and $1,093,028 in Dyer. State share for the Yorkville project is $59,316 and $182,171 in Dyer. The school district will pay $59,317 for the Yorkville retrofit and $182,172 for the Dyer retrofits. “I’d like to see us start in Dyer,” Greg Morris said. “That’s just pure numbers, but I don’t understand the smaller project trial too.” Yorkville currently has about 150 students and Dyer has about 450. Cunningham said retrofits are fairly new for area contractors. “This is something new that companies are just now starting to get into,” he said. Board chair Sara Meals suggested the board approve the projects and discuss how to proceed at their next working session. The board voted 6-0 to approve the retrofits. Charles Scott was absent. Cunningham said FEMA and TEMA will reimburse the district for all the work after the projects are completed. The district may have to pay architect fees this fiscal year. Other costs will be in the 2013-14 budget. The board also approved technology bids: $649.99 for OptiPlex 3010 from Dell, $588.95 for Lenovo Thinkpad from CDWG, and $2,445.00 for multipoint servers from Bytespeed. Cunningham said the technology is budgeted. Legislation & policies Eddie Pruett, Director of Schools, presented the board with a brief update on state and federal legislation, highlighting some key

issues. Pruett said teacher evaluations are part of the teacher’s file but are not public record. School districts must make bullying policies available to students and parents, and beginning next year schools must report bullying to the State Department. Teachers are allowed to participate in religious activities on school grounds such as See You at the Pole but cannot lead those activities. Teachers teaching courses that include End Of Course exams must be endorsed in that area or have passed the Praxis exam for that area. Any teacher should be able to talk about the curriculum such as the strengths or weaknesses of the theory of evolution or global warming without threat of losing their job. “These past few years legislation has been really doing a lot with education legislation,” Pruett said. “It’s been hard to keep up. It’s tough when all of these things are changing. It’s tough for our principals. It’s tough for our teaches. I’m hoping legislation kind of takes it easy on us this year.” The board voted 6-0 to go back to its original policy on private vehicle insurance. The board recently approved an update to the policy based on a recommendation from the Tennessee School Boards Association (TSBA) but found that parents were having trouble complying with the new liability limits of at least $300,000/$700,0 00/$100,000. “A lot of our parents don’t have that insurance,” Pruett said. “Some of the insurance companies don’t offer that

5K run to honor from page 1 into the contest was always warmly welcomed. Not only did she love the pet show, but she loved each and every aspect of Davy Crockett Days. Each celebration was such a joy to her and brought her so much pride. I always looked forward to seeing her during the Celebration and spending the day with her. I know that each Davy Crockett Celebration is special, but there will be a part missing without her presence. It is truly an honor for me to share just a bit about Ms. Pam. She probably would not like all of the attention if she were here, but she touched my life in a special way. She always made my visits to Rutherford very special. I am very proud to have known her, and I am equally as proud that Unity Ministries will honor her in a special way by hosting the Annual 5K run/walk in her memory. Unity Ministries is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to meeting the needs of the local community. Flowers was a member of the Unity Ministries endeavor. This year, during the Davy Crockett Days celebration, Unity Ministries will honor Ms. Pam by dedicating the Annual 5K Run to her

memory. The 5K will be held on October 13th, 2012 (registration begins at 7 a.m., race starts at 8 a.m.). Ms. Pam was very proud of the work of this ministry, and I believe that she would have been humbled to be honored in such a way. Not only did she enjoy helping with delivering Thanksgiving meals to area shut-ins, she was faithful to oversee the registration of participants at the Annual 5K Run. Ms. Pam was a faithful Christian woman who made all that she touched feel very special and Unity Ministries was a part of who she was. Helping those in need and reaching out to those in her community was a very important ministry to her. For me personally, Ms. Pam is, in essence, the meaning of Rutherford. Rutherford is the kind of place where neighbors care about neighbors and are always willing to lend a hand when someone is in need. She embodied this philosophy. For this lesson I learned from her, I will be forever grateful. Each and every time I drive into Rutherford, I will think of Mrs. Pam Flowers, and I will smile. I will smile with pride in my hometown and all of the citizens who make this world a better place in which to live.

insurance. We had some major problems going with the TSBA recommendation. We were trying to come up with some creative ways so that these parents wouldn’t have to spend more money to help our schools.” Terry Cunningham spoke with the school district’s insurance company and got approval and support for going back to the regular liability limits of $100,000 /$300,000/$50,000. The board also approved the first reading of policy 6.206, which deals with transfers and non-resident students. Pruett said the district was running into some issues with the joint custody portion of the policy, which states, “In cases involving ‘joint custody’ between parents, the child shall be permitted to attend school in the Gibson County Special School District if either of the joint custodial parents reside in the Gibson County Special School District.” Attorney Bill Barron crafted new language that says in cases involving ‘shared parenting,’ a child who resides with a parent living in the GCSSD may attend school in the district if he/she resides four nights out of seven in that school district. Board members questioned how school leaders could verify that information. “Sometimes principals might have to go out and check,” Pruett said. “The way the policy is now it’s wide open.” Bruce Pate abstained from voting on the policy, but the board passed it 5-0. “I abstain or I pass because it stinks,” he said. Disclosures Pruett announced new hires for the district and disclosed that Wendy Tate, hired as a teacher assistant librarian at Kenton, Yorkville, and Spring Hill is the wife of school board member Steven Tate. Sara Meals disclosed that Amy Luckey, science teacher at South Gibson County High School, is her niece. The board voted to add a new position at Spring Hill and Yorkville for a Special Ed-endorsed teacher. The board also approved amending the budget to reflect the new salary.

MINI-TRACTOR PULL COMES TO EXPO CENTER – Daren Langston is just one of the many mini-tractor puller who will be pulling September 29th at the West TN Expo Center.

Thompson seeks to serve from page 1 progress on what really matters — getting people back to work and making sure our children can get a high-quality education so they can compete for the jobs of the future.” Thompson says he will consider a good idea from anyone “because good ideas are just that — good ideas — and they don’t come with a party label.” Thompson also emphasized the importance of effective government with a high priority on personal service for citizens. “I’m not a politician, I’m an advocate,” Thompson said. “For my entire career, I have been focused on results, and I have worked with people — Republicans and Democrats — in all of these counties to solve problems and to improve our communities. It is important to me to be that kind of public servant.” A native of Obion County, Thompson served for many years as a top aide to Congressman John Tanner. During this time, he worked extensively on every major economic development project in northwest Tennessee in recent years, including Interstate 69, the Port at Cates Landing, the Everett Stewart Regional Airport, the Spillway Project, Highway 79 from Paris to Dover/Clarksville, and Highway 79 from McKenzie to Milan. Additionally, Thompson worked on a Rural Broadband Initiative with the Rural Utility Service for portions of Gibson and Carroll counties. Thompson was instrumental in securing water and sewer line projects in the district during his tenure with Congressman Tanner, including a project in the Springville Community of Henry County that expanded access to clean water. Thompson also has worked on tourism projects

with Reelfoot Lake, Kentucky Lake, and the Carroll Lake project which all generate millions of dollars in tourism revenues to the region. “I have been fortunate to work on so many great projects that lay the groundwork for future jobs in our counties,” Thompson said. “In the State Senate, I will always be looking for opportunities to improve the lives for our people, and that starts with putting Tennessean back to work. I want to lead the effort to make sure that state contracts go to Tennessee companies first — to create jobs locally, not in China, India or Canada.” Thompson serves as Director of Community Development for the city of Martin. The Federal Co-Chair of the Delta Regional Authority appointed Thompson to the Delta Leadership Institute Executive Academy sponsored by the Delta Regional Authority, of which Governor Haslam is the Board Member for Tennessee. The Delta Leadership Institute prepares emerging leaders across the Delta Region to meet the growing economic development challenges of the 21st century. A member of the Funding Committee for the Discovery Park of America, Martin Rotary Club, and board member for Masquerade Theatre, he is also a former president of the Union City Jaycees, former president of the Boys and Girls Club of Northwest Tennessee, a Leadership Obion County graduate, and is a WestStar Leadership program graduate. “As State Senator, I will defend our rural west Tennessee values. My family has lived and farmed right here for four generations. I was born and raised here. I live here, work here, worship here, and plan to live here the rest of

my life. Protecting our way of life and making sure we thrive is very important to me,” Thompson said. “You won’t have to worry about me going to Nashville and forgetting our values.” A member of the NRA, gun owner and staunch defender of our 2nd Amendment rights, Thompson is a graduate of the Union City Police Academy, and a member of the Drug Court Steering Committee for the 27th Judicial District. Thompson resides in the Midway Community, between Union City and Martin, where he and his family have been longtime residents. He is a song leader and Bible teacher at Bishop Street Church of Christ in Union City. He has also taught devotionals and led singing at an area nursing home on a regular basis for many years. He also has been a leader of the United Way of Obion County and Chimes for Charity Drive, a local program to help children and the elderly in need at Christmas. An adjunct professor at Bethel College teaching business courses with the Success program, Thompson earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Business from UT-Martin and his Master of Public Administration, with an emphasis in organizational communication, from Murray State University.

Pharmacy & Your Health Coping with TMJ TMJ or temporomandibular joint dysfunction syndrome is a painful condition of the joints and muscles of the jaw. Pain is commonly associated with chewing, and tends to be localized to one side of the face. It can spread to the ears, neck, and upper back. Many people also suffer from frequent headaches. TMJ has a characteristic “popping,� “crackling,� and “clicking’ of the jaw along with a blunt pain that is experienced daily. There are many potential causes for TMJ including teeth grinding while a person sleeps, jaw clenching, stress, trauma to the jaw, and conditions such as arthritis. While there is no cure for TMJ, there are many measures that can be taken to alleviate the pain. If the area is tender, an ice pack or heating pad can be applied. Eating softer foods can lesson jaw throbbing. Stress reduction techniques to reduce jaw clenching and lip biting may be helpful. A combination of jaw massages and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as naproxen (Aleve) may provide the best immediate pain relief of TMJ symptoms. Other medications that may be prescribed for pain relief include muscle relaxants like cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and tricyclic antidepressants like amitriptyline (Elavil). If pain continues to be troublesome, an oral surgeon may be consulted for the use of injectable medications or surgical correction.

It was a great day to be in God’s House this past Sunday. The title of Bro. Darryl’s message was, “ Get the junk out of the trunk!� In other words if you’re wanting change in your life then maybe it’s time to do some housecleaning of the soul. Some of the “junk� we tend to harbor within us is anger, pride, lust, laziness, bitterness and having fellowship with darkness. When God redeemed us, He set us free from the darkness. Unfortunately Satan always tries to block God’s loving light with all this junk. To be revived from the junk maybe it’s time to renew your relationship with Jesus and start being committed to Him. God, family, and the church should be your priority list . There are only two options regarding commitment in or out - no life in between. We are living in very negative

times but our God is still very much alive. Keep your eyes on the cross not that load of junk. God wants his children to have joy! Scripture Ref: 2 Chronicles 7:14-16 “ If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.� Upcoming Events: September 30th at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. October 1-3 at 7 p.m. Revival with Bro. Randy Poole and music by Bro. Barry Keathley. Please come and join us in worshipping our savior!

Rutherford 1st Baptist By Kathrine Blankenship Years come and go. We have children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, but I don’t think anything hits harder than to realize you have been out of school for 50 years. Some of us “girls� have been working on a float for all of us to ride on in the parade during Davy Crockett Days. We had a treat in my Sunday school class as,Ivan Shaeffer is out with her back and she asked Carol Cunninghm to fill in for her. Now I know, who to call when I can’t be there. Christy Hinten sang “Your Grace Still amazes me for special music. Bro. Jason’s message “Ask in my Name� was taken from several verses in

Mark, Matthew, and John. It was great to see Tommie Sue Keathley in Sunday school. Mary Evelyn Wilson, is wearing a brace some and is feeling better. Jessamy Moore is home taking it easy after being hit on the head and having concussion. Those having birthdays this week: Tara Landrum, Ashley Riggins, Larry Belew, Harrison Turner, Dean Davidson, Bob Blankenship and JoBeth Turner. Where there is faiththere is love. Where there is love, there is peace. Where there is peace, there is God. Where there is God, there is no need. Until next week, God bless.

Golden Agers By Virginia Burgess On September 19, fourteen members and two guests met at the First Baptist Fellowship center. Brother Jerry Legg called the group to order. Arland Holt offered prayer for the gathering and day, followed by devotion given by Brother Michael Barnett. We were pleased to have Alice Williams and Fay Harrell joining us. Following the devotion we loaded onto the bus to venture to Union City.

A brief stop was made at Goodwill Store followed by a delicious lunch at Lopantos. Blessing on the meal was given by Brother Jerry Legg. After our lunch we then drove to the Vanity Fair Outlet store for a shopping spree and on to the Dollar Tree for further shopping. It was a beautiful day, good fellowship and everyone reported a wonderful time. God bless!

Kenton News by Cindy Lamar On the first day of fall, the weather was ideal for “football time in Tennessee.� Joining the 80,000+ Tennessee Volunteer fans on hand for the game at Neyland Stadium, Luke and Cynthia Lamar made the trek to Knoxville Saturday for the game pitting the University of Tennessee Knoxville against the University of Akron. Amongst a sea of orange, the Lamars enjoyed the electric atmosphere that is Tennessee football. They were witness to some of the pre-game festivities such as the “Vol Walk� and the running through the “T� formation. After a hard played game, the Volunteers recorded a 47-26 victory in the books and now begin preparations for their next opponent on the gridiron. It was a good day in the good ole “Rocky Top.�

Food for Thought: Were I to give you a gift today, a gift to help you along life’s way. One of value more than money can buy, one not causing you to wonder why. One that lasts and never ends, one that helps through thick and thin. I’d give you Jesus, my Savior today. I’d give you Jesus, He is the Way. He’s love and life and joy and peace, He’s everything you’ll ever need. Prayer List: T. F.

Keely Mill by Dianne Hamlin Our Sunday school hour began with everyone standing and singing the hymn Joy To the World! Keith Hamlin opened us in prayer. We all dismissed to our Sunday school classes. Al Margadonna opened the adult class in prayer. Stephen Fields did a good job teaching us our lesson “Living as Strangers.� from 1 Peter 2:11-17. When we belong to the Lord, we can rightly consider heaven to be our ultimate residence. During this life, which is temporary, we live in the fallen, yet-to-be redeemed world. We often feel more at home when we think about being with the Lord in heaven, and we feel a lot like stranger in this world. Keith Hamlin closed us in prayer. Our Sunday morning worship hour began with Elaine Fields playing the

piano and Mike Fields leading us in the hymn He Keeps Me Singing. Dakota Warren opened us in prayer. Rejoice in the Lord always. Bro. Steve welcomed everyone and made many announcements. We all enjoyed our time of meet and greet with our church family and visitors where handshakes, hugs, and encouraging words are shared. We thank the Lord for our visitors. Lindsey Allmon blessed us with our special music as she sang God Gave Me You. Bro. Steve’s morning message “ Preach the word of God� was from 2 Timothy 4:25. Mike Fields dismissed services in prayer as the hymn Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus was sung. Read your Bibles this week and Thank God for His word. We invite you to join us for Fall Revival October 7-10.

Rutherford recovers from storms from page 1 check on her during the storm. She thanked the street crew for bringing the city truck and hauling off the limbs and trees for the church group who cleaned up her yard. Street Supervisor Ed Watkins also advised the council that the street crew was behind on picking up brush due to the large amount throughout the town. Kasey Harris spoke during the visitors section and invited everyone to Davy Crockett Days, which has an opening ceremony on October 7, and activities through October 13. Harris stated the support of the community would be greatly appreciated. Under new business brought before the board, Jimmy Butler asked the board to consider re-zoning the property at 218 South Trenton Street in order to expand his business. Mayor Keith Cardwell stated the zoning board will have to meet first to make a decision. Alderman Don Greer stated they had tried to get a meeting set up for two months and the board should try to get it resolved. Alderman Dusty Emerson asked if the board could give the home owner a time frame to have the meeting with the zoning board. Eddie Bell said he would try to get set up for the next board meeting and if not, the zoning board would recommend something to the city board. In the fire department report, Fire Chief Bob Blankenship reported to the board the fire department held two drills, one training session and one call out in August. In the police department report, Chief Hensley advised his department had 207 calls for the month of August. Hensley advised the board that the Bradford Police Department donatied a police car to Rutherford PD. Hensley commended Dwayne

Reynolds, Bradford Police Chief Scott Combs and the Bradford Mayor and board of aldermen for graciously donating the vehicle at no cost. There are minor repairs to be made before putting the car in service. Hensley asked for the old white Rutherford police car to be made surplus as they have removed the parts needed. Greer made a motion to make the white car surplus and take bids. Emerson seconded the motion, and the board approved the measure. In the water and sewer report, Eddie Watkins advised on the water and wastewater pumped for August. The lagoon has been shut off since August but was put back in service on September17. Watkins advised the board on differences in the finished and raw meters. The meters are not accurate and either need ccccg to be replaced or repaired. Greer made a motion to purchase the new meters from G&C at the prices given. Alderperson Kathy Keith seconded the motion. The motion passed with the board’s approval. Lonnie Bishop from Bishop Fire Hydrant proposed a service agreement with Rutherford for fire hydrants repair, maintenance and flushing. The contract would be based on $40 per hydrant for three years and also include a training session for firemen on how to use hydrants. After discussion among the board, Greer made a motion to accept the threeyear contract with Bishop. Keith seconded the motion and the board approved the measure. In the street report, Keith expressed concern on a hole developing in the street

at Waldunn Cove. Keith made a motion to get a bid from PRI and see what it would take to fix and report back to the board. Emerson seconded the motion and the board approved. The Financial reports were submitted by City Recorder Melissa Workman. The board accepted the financial reports for the month of August. Mayor Cardwell advised the board of an auditor finding. The water and sewer fund owes the General fund between $21,000 and $22,000 and it needs to be reimbursed. The money has been accumulating since 2006. Under old business, Greer stated there needed to be something put in writing about the use of city dump. Cardwell thought it would be beneficial to allow people outside city limits to pay a fee to use the dump. Keith agreed a fee should be set only for out of town citizens. Emerson and Greer stated $25 would be sufficient. Cardwell stated he would get something written up by next board meeting with regulations and exemptions. Under new business, Barbara Hunt presented figures for Humana health insurance coverage for employees that would be a big savings for employees and the city. Greer made a motion to accept the Humana 2000/0 plan. Emerson seconded the motion and the board approved the measure. The extra policy for Davy Crockett Days will be done again this year to cover the town. Hunt also handed out data/network liability coverage for the review of the board.

witchcraft, wizardry, and sorcery. Would God sit idly by? Moses had a pure understanding of this in Numbers 14. Would any loving father allow his children to continue to turn from him and dishonor him and his name and lead the next generation further away from God without teaching the consequence of their actions? “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.� (2 Timothy 2:13.) God cannot deny Himself. God cannot deny His Word. Deuteronomy 28 explains the blessings and the curses or the unwanted consequences. “Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day: And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.�(Deuteronomy 11:26-28.)

When you’re ready, please read (Amos 7:1-8). Amos prayed for people who weren’t friends or family for the most part. Amos just prayed for others. God has shown us a picture of intercessory prayer. Amos saw that this was the latter crop and after the king “mowed� off the top, the people would have slim leftovers. Amos realized their sin and prayed, “God forgive them.� God held back judgment. Then it’s as if God called the people into court, His court. It would be the first trial by fire. The fire devoured a great body of water. Then the sea looked like a pond. Amos prayed, “Lord cease. Stop the fire of judgment.� God answered again. Who do You think was devoured? Who do you think was left in this narrow body of water? “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way, that loadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:� (Matthew 7:13) One man of God had prayed for a nation and God answered “yes� twice. The people were god’s chosen people, His children. Would Holy God allow His children to continue in sin, rebellion,

North Union By Connie Cooper Bro. Don and I got back from our vacation all rested and ready to get back to our routine. We enjoyed our travels and especially the opportunity to attend a ballgame in St. Louise with friends Tommy and Christa Bearden. We also went to UTMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rodeo in Marshall, Mo. where we saw Cody Cooper and Robert Joyce. On Saturday a large group from the church spent the day at the Memphis Zoo. All had a good time. LaVera Winters brought an interesting childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sermon that focused on the history of â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Outâ&#x20AC;? (a product used in the good ole days of the typewriter). She demonstrated how white out could be applied to the list of sins typed on a sheet of paper to cover the words, but not remove the words. Her point was that to have sins removed we must rely on the cleansing blood of Jesus. The children closed the sermon with the song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesus Paid It All.â&#x20AC;? Bro. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message was taken from 1 Thessalonians 2:1-12 and was entitled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Gospel According to You.â&#x20AC;? The point was made that we are all preaching a message while living out our lives. As

     { 64:*6'7 ?

64:*6'7  ?

Christians our â&#x20AC;&#x153;gospelâ&#x20AC;? should be the same as that of our Lord. What is your sermon saying to others? In our evening message Bro. Don considered the analogizes, Paul made between the Christian life and the practices of the soldier, the athlete and the farmer. We learned the need to be consecrated, loyal, disciplined, rule-following, self-denying, faithful people. A huge challenge, but one that we can achieve with the help of God. Following our evening service we had a game night. The older folks played some Rook, while the teenagers participated in a game called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smugglersâ&#x20AC;?. There was lots of chasing and catching and camouflage paint. I think all had a good time. Happy birthday wishes go out to Danielle Rickman and Royce Turner this week. We also want to recognize our visitors, Jan Williams and Terry McGregor. We are looking forward to Old Fashion Sunday coming up on the 7th. Hope you have a great week and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see you in church.

TRIBUTE TO MAGAN PORTER - Friends and family gathered together Monday afternoon, September 25 around the Gibson County High School flagpole (top photo) to remember Magan Porter, a GCHS student who was killed recently in a car accident. Magan’s favorite color was yellow, so bright yellow balloons lined the entrance to the school (lower photo) to greet those who came to pay tribute to the teen. Many shared stories about Magan to celebrate her life. Tears were shed and an overwhelming sense of love flowed through the crowd. After a brief prayer, the balloons were released. The crowd watched as the balloons rose into the air. Fly high Magan, you were greatly loved and will be missed. (by Jennifer McCaig Cox)

The Apostolic Faith Tabernacle “Oh, Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understands by thoughts afar off. Thou compasseth my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord thou knowest it altogether.” (Psalms 139:1-4) “God knows me …And loves me still. Miracle of miracles. Pastor Davidson preached out of Revelations 2:1-4 Sunday. “Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks. I know thy works, and thy labor, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them that are evil: and thou hast tried them that they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: and hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. I believe that if this were being written by some modern day prophet it would read something like this “Unto the churches of the twenty-

first century especially in the western civilization write, These things with Jesus: I know what you do. I know how you labor making cookies and cakes and bread for your nice dinners and I know how hard you work developing your programs, your vacation Bible schools and your Sunday school programs and your programs for missions and your programs for Christmas and Easter and all that stuff. I appreciate your dedication to your work I really do. I know that in my name you’ve done all these things. Nevertheless, in my name you’ve also sat at home Monday through Friday on your nice comfortable couch or driven to your nice paying job in your very nice car when what I wanted you to do is invite your drugaddicted neighbor over to your house for dinner or take him a plate of food and just listen to him and pray for him. I would have liked it very much if you would quietly taken your neighbor and her five fatherless children enough food to get her through a week instead of spending fifty dollars on your dishes to impress all the other women at the church. Yes, I would’ve liked that very even though you’ve invited her to church

and she wouldn’t come. And by the way, I would’ve liked for you to have taken that out of your own pocket silently. I appreciate all the nice creative ways that you have found to teach my word – all the nice curriculum and things. Those are very nice. But I would like for you to remember that my word is more quick and powerful. Than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. My word truly is enough. I would have liked for you to remember that. Yes, I appreciate all of your labor. I really do. Nevertheless, you’ve left your first love. Just because you busy yourself with Christian activities, doesn’t make you a Christian. Come back to where you first me and study my Word and really get to know Me for yourself before you stand before me and I have to shock you with the words, ‘depart from me …for I never knew you.’” Be people of prayer this week and study to show thyself approved unto God a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

The calendar says it is Fall and there is a little nip in the air so I guess it must be Fall. Last Sunday a good number of Bethpage folks enjoyed a fine fish and ham dinner at Reelfoot Lake in honor of our Senior Saints. All diets were pitched in the lake and we got our fill of the delicious food provided. Each “old” person was presented a gift I guess for just still being here. We did have a great time and are sorry for those who had to miss it this year. Doris Peevyhouse and George Wade got a year older last week so we wish them both a Happy Birthday. Next Sunday, Sept 30th we will be observing Harvest Day. Our offering will go to our building fund. All members are asked to bring pot luck dishes for our meal and we welcome any and all visitors who would like to join us. Between worship service and the meal, we are going to have a celebration service honoring Brock Lowrance who recently returned from serving in Afghanistan. If you know Brock and would like to come and be a part of that you are certainly invited to do so. Gary Sellers and his family from Memphis visited Mrs Oneida, Ron and Dot Sellers this weekend. There is a new family who has moved into our neighborhood on Littleton Road. If you run into them, make sure to give them a good old Tennessee country

welcome. Sympathy is extended to the family of Megan Porter who lost her young life in an automobile accident. She was loved by all who knew her and many are hurting at this loss. Mrs Ruby Hugheley passed away this weekend so we send thoughts and prayers to her family. From the pastor: Read Romans 6:15-18 If we continue to submit to evil conduct because we believe in “free grace” through Christ, then this jus shows

that we’re still servants of sin, and not under Grace at all. Does all this open cotton make you want to go to the barn and get your cotton sack? Not me!! I never was very good at picking cotton, much to my Dad’s dismay. I hated the spiders that would crawl out of the bolls into your hand and the saw briars cutting your shins. Hard work. Maybe it grew character. I don’t know, just made me tired. Have a great week. See you in church Sunday.

WHITE CANE DAY - Lions Club member Charles Nolan was hard at work last Saturday for the Lions Club White Cane Day at Food-Rite. The Lions Club collected quite a few monetary donations and several pair of used eyeglasses. Thanks to everyone who donated money or glasses which in turn helps the Lions keep up their 70 year tradition of serving the citizens of Dyer.

The Grapevine By Sarah Skinner We enjoyed a beautiful fall day Sunday. We also had a wonderful service at St. Paul. The youth department held the devotion and provided the music. Diondrea Pitts was the worship leader. A dedication service was held for our newborn babies in St. Paul. Nehemiah Jay Simpson was dedicated to the Lord. His mother, Lue Shonda Dennis, his grandparents, Ronald and Yolonda Banks, and his godmother, Minister Jasmin Williams stood with him. Briley McMoore was dedicated to the Lord. Her mother, Sophrina Moore, her father Conscious Powell, her grandparents, Vivian Moore, Mr. and Mrs. Jimmie Powell, and her godmother, Rev. Michelle

Skinner stood with her. Rev. Willie L. Pounds performed the dedication service. Minister Jasmin Williams delivered the message. Her topic, “Neighbor, You Can’t Talk It Out of Me,” was found in Acts 7:1, and 54-56. All of St. Paul Ministers were present. Rev. Michelle Skinner had to leave immediately after service; she had to catch a plane to Tucson, Arizona for her job. Those celebrating birthdays this week are Zackery White and Sonya Dilsworth. We wish them happy birthday. Prayer list: William Edmonds, L M. Bardwell, Rev. Henry Banks, Rev. John Brooks, Charlie L. White, Preston White, John Mays, Martha Simpson,

Josie Johnson, Mary L. Mays Robin Glisson, Barbara White, Cathy Bailey and Geraldine Grice. Love and sympathy is extended to the families of Mrs. Lottie Jenkins and Mrs. Addie M. Wright of Rutherford, and Mrs. Eva Lee Street of Bradford. Harold and Josie Banks and Lennie Banks attended the district meeting of District 1 and 7 and a Masonics and Order of the Eastern Star Saturday morning. After the meeting Harold and Josie attended the funeral of Mrs. Street at Beech Grove M.B. church in Bradford. Lil Sarah and I spent the day with Michelle Skinner Saturday and went to the hair salon. God bless and have a good week.

Adding chocolate to milk doesn’t take away essential nutrients BY DEBORAH H. SEWARD, EXTENSION AGENT It is important to inspire kids to make healthy food choices while in the lunchroom or with friends. Since fewer than 10 percent of girls and 20 percent of boys ages 9 to 13 are at or above their adequate intake of calcium, encouraging kids to consume milk (even if it is flavored) and other milk products is essential for building bone density for life. All milk contains a unique combination of nutrients important for growth and development. Milk is the primary food source of three of four nutrients of

concern identified by the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans: calcium, vitamin D, and potassium. Recommended daily servings of low-fat or fat-free milk and milkproducts: •Age 9+ 3 Daily Servings •Age 4-8 2.5 Daily Servings •Age 2-3 2 Daily Servings Flavored milk contributes only three percent of added sugars in the diets of children 2 to 18 years and is a healthy alternative to soda, diet soda, fruit punch, and sports drinks. According to the

American Academy of Pediatrics and National Dairy Council, the top five reasons why flavored milk matters to children is because: 1. Kids Love the Taste! Milk provides nutrients for good health and kids drink more when it’s flavored. 2. Nine Essential Nutrients! Flavored milk contains the same nine essential nutrients as white milk- calcium,

potassium, phosphorus, protein, vitamins A, D, and B12, riboflavin, and niacin (niacin equivalents)- and is a healthy alternative to soft drinks. 3. Helps Kids Achieve Three Servings! Drinking low-fat or fat-free white or flavored milk helps kids get the three daily servings of milk and milk products recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. 4. Better Diet

Quality! Children who drink flavored milk meet more of their nutrient needs, do not consume more added sugar or total fat, and are not heavier than non-milk drinkers.

5. Top Choice in Schools! Low-fat chocolate milk is the most popular milk choice in schools and kids drink less milk (and get fewer nutrients) if it’s taken away.

Child rescue a shining moment from page 1 Commissioner Bruce Williams, Chairman of the Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management Committee, and Bryan Cathey, County Fire Chief both handed out praise for the cooperative rescue effort that involved over 80 people. “This was one of the most organized searches I have ever been on, with everybody pooling their resources and working together to look for the little boy,” said Chief Cathey. “This was termed as the most well run and successful rescue attempt that anyone had ever been on in this area,” Mr. Williams told commissioners. On Saturday, August 25 emergency responders we were called to a home on the Trenton-Alamo Highway, near Frog Jump about 5 miles west of Trenton, to look for an 8 year-old boy who has autism. The boy had been missing for over an hour before Fire Dept. workers got the call. Detective Steve Webb of the Gibson Co. Sherriff Dept. became the incident commander. “We had 81 people -

firemen, Sheriff’s deputies, Emergency Management and Rescue personnel, and others - on the scene,” said Chief Cathey in a report of the rescue effort. “We used the Incident Command system to grid search the area. The 8 year-old boy was found three miles away from his house. Detective (Steve) Webb did a great job with the Incident Command System.” Mr. Williams said the outstanding cooperation among different agencies was a welcome contrast to problems that existed in the past. “A few years ago when I got on the (County) Commission a department head told me that Gibson Co. was famous or infamous for getting the job done, but getting it done without a whole lot of participation between the agencies in emergency response,” Williams told commissioners. “Everybody would saddle up their horse and ride off in different directions, and there wasn’t a whole lot of cooperation.” Williams said the key to an efficient rescue effort is establishing an Incident

Command and having a plan in place. “We’ve always talked about an incident command but seldom practiced it,” said Williams. “The answer to having little cooperation was having incident command.” “In this particular case Investigator Webb was on the scene with the Fire Dept. and maybe a Rescue Squad, Emergency Management and probably the Ambulance Service - they all responded to this,” added Williams. “Incident command was set up with Investigator Webb in charge. Fire Dept. Station 2 brought their mobile command center out there and set it up. Everything was funneled through Investigator Webb, and he was able to direct folks so there was no duplication of effort or no voids that weren’t being covered.
