Gibson County Mayor Tom Witherspoon

County mayor asks for wheel tax increase BY STEVE SHORT County Mayor Tom Witherspoon plans to ask the County Commission to approve a $12.50 “Economic Development” wheel tax increase when the legislative body meets in Trenton Monday March 14. The increase would raise the county wheel tax from $35 to $47.50. The tax increase would produce $500,000 a year in revenues, said Witherspoon. “That money would remain in a restricted fund to be used to support industrial projects that your county commissioners deemed worthy, no matter where in the county they might be,” said Mayor Witherspoon. He wrote an article outlining his reasoning behind the tax increase. He said Gibson County lost a potential industrial project to the city of Parsons. Gibson County made an offer of see page 3

Joylanders celebrate 40th year The Joylanders are celebrating 40 years as a gospel-singing group. Their 40th Anniversary Homecoming will be held March 18-20 at Gibson County High School Theater. The group will perform at 7 p.m. on March 18, 6 p.m. on March 19 and at 9:30 a.m. on March 20. Joining them in their performances will be The Barnetts, Renaissance Quartet and other gospel groups. The Joylanders began their ministry in 1971 in Dyer. Perry and Nell Wimberley felt the call of God on their lives to minister for the Lord through music ministry. They answered the call and have been singing ever since. There have been many changes through the years, but one thing has remained the same, the message of salvation through a man named Jesus Christ for all who would receive it. The group presently is comprised of Perry and Nell Wimberley and Jason, see page 10

SEASONAL WONDERLAND – William White decorates his home on Main Street in Rutherford with special lights and decorations for every holiday. This month White celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with green lights and lucky clovers. White keeps a decorated tree (lower photo) inside Rutherford Grocery, where he is manager. He decorates the tree with lights and ornaments according to the holiday or season.

Rutherford’s White lights up the town every holiday BY CINDY EAST William White of Rutherford is affectionately called the ‘lights man’ by many young children. They beg their parents to drive by White’s house at 317 West Main at night to see it all lit up with the colors of any given holiday. Right now White is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with an all green theme. Green lights, some shaped like clovers, adorn the bushes and front porch of his home. A leprechaun wishes everyone a ‘Happy St. Patrick’s Day from one of William’s flower garden. Just a few weeks ago the home was decorated in red and pink lights with hearts for Valentine’s Day. When St. Patrick’s Day is over William will bring out his pastel decorations and white lights for the Easter holiday. White’s love for decorating for the holidays began when he was a small child with his love of Christmas. His mother bought him his first Santa Claus and a 3-foot Christmas tree when he was just five years old. He still has them both. When he was about 10, he really started decorating for the holidays. He would save his left over lunch money to buy more decorations for his room. “From my room it spread to the whole house. I now have over 30 trees of all sizes that I decorate inside for Christmas,” said White. There is a nine-foot tree, 18 trees size four-foot and up, and 12 one to two-foot tall trees. He said it takes about 80 hours of hard labor to put up all his Christmas decorations. Lights adorn nearly every tree, and bush in the front, back and side yard, as well as the house. “I’ve been doing this for 26 years. I began with Christmas, fall and Halloween decorations. Over the years I’ve added Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, and I do a little at Thanksgiving. I have so many boxes of decorations that I had to build a shed to put them all in.,” said White. White’s efforts have not gone unnoticed. Not only do local people know White’s hobby. The Tennessee

Magazine and The Jackson Sun, have done features on White and his family for their collection of Christmas trees and Santa Claus collectibles. “I love doing it. I’ve had people make fun of me for it but that doesn’t stop me. It just makes me want to do more,” said White. And he is doing more. His love for holiday decorating has spread to the downtown area. White is the manager of Rutherford Grocery. He now decorates the store with colored lights and other holiday appropriate decorations. An artificial tree is located in the back corner of the store that he changes out for each season or holiday. William also changes colored lights out for two other downtown businesses, Pates and Felecia Bella. They provide the bulbs for him. William has excellent customer service skills and greets everyone who walks through the door at Rutherford Grocery by name. If you don’t know William or he doesn’t know you, you will by the time you leave the store. His kind and friendly nature makes him a stranger to no one. His efforts have brought a new life to the downtown area making it appear festive all year long. “I wanted to make our town look alive again!” he said. His mission is accomplished.

You can always count on ‘Miss’ Lelabelle BY WILLIAM G. MCFARLAND You can always count on ‘Miss’ Lelabelle Baier! Yes, that right! ‘Miss’ Lelabelle taught school for years in the Rutheford School System. Dozens of students walked through her classroom door as one person; they walked out as another person. ‘Miss’ Lelabelle was always dressed with a smile in that classroom; she was dressed with a smile outside the classroom also. And, she continues to be dressed with a smile wherever she goes in her retirement years. Community! That’s what ‘Miss’ Lelabelle is about. She believes in her community. She supports her community. She is there whenever any community event is on the calendar and she enthusiastically makes her donation to the cause. Most recently, ‘Miss’ Lelabelle traveled to the Good Luck Fire Department on a Saturday morning where the Salem Methodist Church Relay for Life Team was hosting a pancake breakfast. A large number attended making the breakfast a success. ‘Miss’ Lelabelle brought her smile and pleasing personality with her causing all of us to immediately feel a motivation. In commenting about the importance of Relay to her and to our area, Miss Lelabelle stated, “Relay is important. It is totally about working for good. I have seen the results. I know the efforts of Relay work. My husband Fred had colon cancer 25 to 30 years ago. Fortunately, he survived and didn’t have any trouble after the surgery. I know the incision he had then; I know the incisions people have now. I know that research has helped to make these see page 2

GCUD’s Riley advocates natural gas vehicles The world consumes approximately 85 million barrels of oil per day. The United States consumes approximately 20 million barrels daily. Thirteen million barrels of that oil is imported from Canada, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Nigeria daily so we in the U.S. can enjoy the standard of living accustomed to. When you do the math, 13 million barrels of oil per at $100 per barrel, times 365 days per year equals an expenditure of $4.75 trillion dollars per year, and we wonder and ask what the solution is. “There is a solution to this problem and this solution is being used in certain parts of the country today,” Pat Riley, General Manager of Gibson County Utility District who also heads up the Tennessee Gas Association said. “The solution is compressed natural gas vehicles. There are approximately 150,000 compressed natural gas vehicles (CNGVs) on the see page 3

Dyer seeks new alderperson The City of Dyer Board of Mayor and Alderpersons met in regular session Monday, February 28. In the visitor’s report, Chris Callins addressed the board and asked when the recommendation from the three-member alderperson replacement committee would be brought before the city board. Mayor Sam Thompson advised that a few problems had been encountered. The city’s new charter, passed in May 2010, did away with the mayor appointing a threeperson committee. The new charter also specifies that the seat must be declared vacant by the city board. The three-person committee that the mayor appointed did meet and submit a recommendation, but the committee did not post the time or date of the meeting, which invalidates the meeting. Under new business, a motion was made by alderman Nathan Reed and see page 3

Insight & Opinion King James Version Bible turns 400

Clayburn Peeples reports: Here in America we love to mark the anniversaries of significant events in history. We note the 10th or 25th or 50th anniversaries of all sorts of things. We celebrate centennials and sesquicentennials and bicentennials of something every year it seems. Well this year there is a quadricentennial celebration, and this time there is really something to celebrate. It was 400 years ago that the first King James Version of the Bible was published. It would become what most people would call the most influential book ever published. Amazingly, it was the work of a church committee. Who would have thought that 54 people, working together, could come up with a single work that is a masterpiece, not only from a theological standpoint, but literarily and culturally as well? People often speak of Shakespeare’s influence on the English language, and it is profound, but that of the King James Version of the Bible is far, far greater. For example, almost countless terms and words we use in everyday language came to us first in the King James Bible. “My brother’s keeper”, “salt of the earth”, “filthy lucre”, “giving up the ghost”, “sign of the times”, “drop in the bucket” — these are all ideas expressed for the very first time in the

King James Bible. There is no way to accurately measure the influence it had on the English-speaking world over the next four centuries. Who wrote it? Well, while those of us who call ourselves Christians believe every bit of the Bible is a result of divine inspiration, it appeared to be, at the time of its compilation, as much the result of political compromise as anything else. King James, who commissioned it, was trying to appease two warring factors of the Church of England, who used different Bibles and believed different things, when he called the Hampton Court Conference in 1604 to work out their differences. Their efforts at reconciling their differing theologies failed completely, but they did come up with one idea they could both agree on. A new Bible translation should be written, one that would correct known errors in those then extant and that would bridge doctrinal differences between the two factions. The King acted at once, appointing 54 scholars and theologians to produce such a work. Seven years later, they presented him with a masterpiece. By some accounts, up to 80 percent of the King James Version of the Bible was the work of William Tyndale, who had translated

the original Greek and Hebrew texts into English nearly a century earlier. Tyndale had been a priest and was a scholar/linguist who was determined to give ordinary Englishspeaking people a Bible in their own language. (On orders of the Church, it was only available in Latin at the time.) Tyndale thought it must be translated into English, however, so that “the boy that driveth the plough” would “know more of the scripture.” The English language, at that time, was looked down upon by not only the Church, but the educated elites as well, who considered it to be the coarse tongue of the masses, so when Tyndale was forbidden to translate at home, he went to Germany where he finished his translation and in 1526 he had 3,000 copies printed, copies which he began smuggling to England inside cotton bales at once. Those discovered by church officials were seized by church authorities and burned as heretical. Condemned for his efforts, Tyndale fled Germany to hide out in Belgium, but was betrayed by a friend there, captured and executed by strangulation. His body was then burned in public. His final words were “Lord, open the King of England’s eyes.” Ironically, a few years

Dear Editor, It seems the Tennessee General Assembly, with the new Tea Party Republican majority, is hard at work already. Look at what we’ve seen already: a law that essentially makes it a felony to be Islamic in Tennessee, a law requiring an ID to vote that amounts to a new form of Jim Crow, and several other goofy measures that have absolutely no relevance to the greater good of the people. We have also seen our governor-elect slash regulations in order to save his family’s billion dollar corporation money; he also signed an executive order reversing the Bredesen Administration’s policy of transparency, by disallowing the public to see just how much money he and his corporate cronies are making while in office on the taxpayer’s dime. So much for government transparency! But what about that jobs package that Haslam was touting during the

Dear Editor, The Tea Party statewide is supporting the Education Reform Bills now making their way through the state legislature. It is not only a tax issue. Union negotiators in the private sector are normally dealing with professional managers who are held accountable by the board of directors to protect the companies well being. School boards are not trained or equipped to deal with professional union negotiators effectively and the school boards are accountable to the tax payer only. Several teachers spoke at the Tea Party Rally in Nashville this past Saturday in favor of ending collective bargaining by the TEA. One of the Teachers speaking was an older very experienced

campaign? I guess jobs are on the back-burner for now, and these aforementioned “issues” are obviously more important. The Tea Party Republicans have also launched on allout assault on the middleclass, especially with regard to education. In 2008, Phil Bredesen—in a remarkable act of pragmatic, bipartisan effort—guided through unprecedented education reform that won our state 500 million dollars in federal monies to go towards revamping our education system. The Tennessee Education Association, whose members go to your churches and live in your communities, is comprised of good people, who aren’t greedy, and who don’t seek to bilk the taxpayer out of money. They are selfless people who do hard work, and really don’t do it for the pay. The TEA made big sacrifices in order to win these federal dollars. They did it because they cared

about Tennessee children. Now the legislature and our governor--along with our local representative Curtis Halford and local Tea Party Republican David Nance— are seeking to kick the teachers in Tennessee while they’re down. This is nothing but an assault on teachers and children. But what do the Tea Party Republicans care, it’s not like they would allow their kids to attend public schools! This has nothing to do with property taxes. If Mr. Nance was so worried about rising property taxes, then he wouldn’t have stopped the wheel tax from being implemented, which in turn made property taxes rise. Call or E-mail Curtis Halford at (615) 741-7478 or rep.curtis.halford@capitol. tn.gov, and demand that he stand up for the children and teachers in Gibson and Carroll Counties and vote against HB0130.

up with a revision for the next 270 years. And the beauty and grandeur of its poetry and prose became the standard of excellence for British writers and speakers over the next four centuries who emulated its style and grace. Today, of course, English is spoken all around the world, even in some parts of the United States, and everywhere it is, the words speakers and writers use are influenced by the long, long, 400 year old shadow of the King James Version of the Bible.

His phrasing was marked by soaringly simplistic grandeur; he used basic Saxon vocabulary of short, powerful words and sentences he embellished with all sorts of English styles that nobody else on earth could have done at the time. And while the 1611 King James Bible was not the first English language version of the Bible, or even the most popular one for a few years after it came out, it soon became so popular, and so respected, that no one thought it necessary to come

later, King Henry VIII, having fallen for the young and comely (to Henry anyway) Anne Boleyn, broke away from the Catholic Church in order to marry her, the pope having refused to annul Henry’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon. Henry then authorized an English language Bible, so Tyndale’s dying prayer was answered, after a fashion. The reason the committee that put together the King James Version of the Bible relied so heavily on Tyndale’s earlier translation to come up with their “Authorized Version” was that Tyndale’s version could

County Mayor asks for wheel tax increase from page 1 $30,000 to a company, but Parsons offered $300,000 over three years. “$300,000 from a county of less than 8,000 people that has the highest unemployment rate in the state,” remarked Witherspoon. “Companies that are giving us looks (and there has been a recent upturn in them) are now not only asking counties to provide them with things such as infrastructure and moving expense assistance, they are beginning now to ask simply for CASH,” wrote Witherspoon. “We have made sound investments such as the county wide industrial park in the past; we simply need

money in hand to sweeten the pot,” he added. “The only way to stabilize our tax rates both wheel and property long term is to do more to keep people working, spending and living well right here in Gibson County. Whether you are a farmer, firefighter, school teacher, banker, car dealer, factory worker or politician, this investment will benefit us all in the long run. It is time for us to stop thinking in terms of saving ourselves tax money in the short term and start thinking long term solution.” Last year the Gibson Co. Commission voted to raise the county wheel tax from $35 to $70 to increase county revenues. But in a public referendum,

residents rejected the increase. In the general election, 69 percent of county residents voted against the wheel tax hike while only 31 percent supported it. Opposition to the wheel tax hike was led by members of the Gibson County Patriots conservative group. This week Mayor Witherspoon planned to ask for the Patriots group’s support of a new, $12.50 tax increase proposal when he was to speak to the members Tuesday March 8 at their meeting. “If we can get the Tea Party group to support this I think we can get the Commissioners to support it and we can move forward in the county,” said Mayor Witherspoon.

GCUD’s Riley advocates from page 1 roads of America today. A lot of these are fleet vehicles, AT&T has 5,000, Verizon Wireless has 500 and the number of school buses and trash trucks using compressed natural gas has doubled in the past two years. The momentum is growing in fleet vehicle applications and will continue to grow. But where are we in terms of passenger vehicles? Riley asked. Riley stated that there are currently 11.5 million natural gas vehicles in used worldwide. Pakistan, of all places, has 2.3 million CNGVs, Argentina, 1.8 million, Iran and Brazil both have 1.6 million. If these countries can accomplish this, then why can’t we do the same thing here in the U.S.? “A car totally dedicated to natural gas, is sold in the U.S. It is the Honda Civic GX, with a list price of $25,000 and gets 26 mpg city and 36 mpg highway,” Riley said. “In December, 2010 tax credits were extended into 2011 for purchasing CNGVs and home refueling units as well. CNN ranked it as the “Greenest Car” in America. In fact, for the tenth consecutive year, the Honda Civic GX NGV has been recipient of that honor by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and constantly beats out the Nissan Leaf and Toyota Prius. It has practically no emissions because it is powered totally by clean burning natural gas. Natural gas is composed of 99% methan and methane has only one carbon atom, CH4. Propane has three carbon atoms, gasoline has eight and diesel has 14. The Honda Civic GX NGV is available today to retail customers in California, New York, Utah and Oklahoma. Why not in Tennessee and the Southeast?” Riley asks. Riley went on to say, “These states have natural gas public refueling stations. In fact if you go to the website www.cngprices.com you will see a U.S. map that shows the locations of all the natural gas public refueling stations in America and it also gives the prices they they are charging for an equivalent gallon of gasoline> The best thing about all of this is that it is our fuel. We don’t have

to import it. With the advent of “shale gas” drilling in the U.S., it has been a game changer in the natural gas industry. It is estimated that over 1,000 trillion cubic feet of natural gas is recoverable in the lower 48 states alone. This is enough natural gas by itself to meet U.S demand for over the next 100 years. We also have the infrastructure in place to get these supplies to any market in the U.S. through two million miles of interconnected interstate pipelines.” “So, we have the supply, we have the means to get the supply to the markets, we have the car, and in certain parts of the U.S., we have natural gas refueling stations. We just need to expand these refueling stations and get the car dealers to start selling these natural gas vehicles to the public. Also, for added convenience, there is a home refueling unit on the market that hangs on your carport wall and you can fill your natural gas vehicle from your home through your natural gas home piping,” Riley said. In Tennessee, the Tennessee Gas Association is moving forward with an initiative to meet the challenge of installing public refueling stations and bringing GNGV vehicles to Tennessee. They have formed a partnership with East Tennessee Clean Cities to develop an “NGV Team across Tennessee.” Riley has taken the lead role in the Association’s initiative. Nashville has just installed the first natural gal public refueling station and Atlanta is about to add five more stations to the three it already has. Riley worked with the Tennessee Association of Utilility Districts and State Rep. Curtis Halford and State Sen. Lowe Finney two years ago and got a law passed that would allow the district to sell natural gas as a public transportation fuel. “We hope to have a public refueling station in the next few years,” Riley said. “The savings to school systems, cities fleet vehicles and the general public will be outstanding,” “The future is here today! Let’s become self-sufficient in meeting our energy needs and at the same time help our national security by using our clean fuel. Why ship U.S.

dollars abroad where they can destabilize global financial markets and then hit us back in lost jobs and savings, when we can develop the natural resources we have here in our own country,” Rileys said. “As the tag line for the Tennessee Gas Association states—Natural Gas . . . Naturally Better! I think you agree with $5 gasoline on the horizon,” Riley said.

Quilt Trail is underway BY BERLYNNE HOLMAN The Gibson County Visual arts Association Quilt Trail is officially underway! Janice Thomas, a Medina quilter, is currently taking part in one of the beginning steps of painting quilt squares for the GCVAA Quilt Trail, partially funded by an Arts Builds Communities Grant from Northwest Tennessee Development district through the Tennessee Arts Commission. Janice is an accomplished quilter and has many cloth quilts under her belt. However, painting Quilt Squares is a first for her. “Janice will be presenting a bit of quilt history to some of our school groups in the county in the near future,” said Royce Harris, GCVAA president and chair of the Quilt Trail project. If you belong to a civic group, who would like to help paint the squares or if you know an interesting or

historical building (maybe yours) to mount one on, call Royce Harris at 784-4120. You may also call Royce if you would like to sponsor one of the quilt square stops on the tourism brochure. The Gibson County

Quilt Trail is on the way to becoming a reality, so continue to be on the lookout for the first appearance of a quilt square on the trail. Let’s put Gibson County and the counties surrounding it on the map!

The board approved the measure. Cindy Raymond, grant writer for the THDA Home Grant, advised the board that procurement letters had been mailed for the grant and the city only had one respondent, Braly Inspection Service. Raymond advised that she had worked with this company and recommended them to the board. A motion was made by Reed and seconded by alderman Robert Johnson to approve the THDA Home Inspection Service to Braly Inspection Service. The board approved the measure. In the mayor’s report, Thompson advised the board that he had received several complaints on the condition of the property at C & C Recycling on North Main Street. Thompson asked Health Committee Chairman, Roger Gray to check in to this situation. In department reports, fire chief Bob Moore reminded the board that the city had applied for an AFG (Assistance to Firefighters Grant) Grant in the amount of $87,750 for SCBA equipment and a fill station.

Pharmacy & Your Health Immediate Treatment for this Heart Condition Unstable angina is classified as an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), which means the condition is a result of a sudden decrease in blood flowing to the heart. When this happens, immediate medical attention is required. The condition is caused by an imbalance in supply and demand of oxygen for the heart. This imbalance can originate from the buildup of fatty deposits (known as plaques) in the arteries, which can lead to narrowing of the arteries. Unstable angina often causes chest pain at rest, severe chest pain, or intense, frequent, or prolonged chest pain episodes. Persons who experience unstable angina should receive nitroglycerin sublingually (under the tongue) at first. Antithrombotic therapies, such as aspirin and clopidogrel (Plavix), may be given as soon as possible to prevent further blood clotting. In addition, anticoagulant medication, such as enoxaparin (Lovenox) or fondaparinux (Arixtra), which work to further prevent blood clotting, may be administered. For prevention of an ACS such as unstable angina, diets low in saturated-fat, trans-fat, salt, and cholesterol and high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are also encouraged. Regular aerobic exercise is also recommended. Persons with high cholesterol may be prescribed a statin medication, such as simvastatin (Zocor).

I began my weekend with North Union folks on Thursday when I attended the “Sounds of Spring� concert a GCHS. Three of our young ladies performed in that event. They are Lexi Whitley, Lauren Whitley, and Danielle Rickman. They did us proud! Hopefully our own pastor will be back in the pulpit next Sunday, but his vacancy was aptly filled by Bro. Daymond Duck this week. We heard the message, “The King Who Almost Went to Heaven� taken from the account of Paul’s audience with Festus and King Agrippa recorded in Acts 26. God gave opportunity to this man to embrace the truth and become a Christian even with his and his family’s history of evil. God loves us so much and demonstrates it to the greatest extent. Please don’t fail to respond to that love and be one who “almost� believed. Our Children’s Sermon and special music were combined in Linda Carmoney’s message to the church about being the clay in the potter’s hands. Scripture from Isaiah and Jeremiah told us

Keely Mill Our Sunday morning services began with Mike Fields leading us in the hymn “When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder.� Keith Hamlin opened us in prayer. We all dismissed to our Sunday school classes. Tonya Fields did a good job teaching the younger youth their lesson on Nickadeames and what it meant to be born again. Christy Skelton opened the adult class in prayer then did a good job teaching us our lesson “Link Up With Others� from Philippians 1:1-11. We can work with other Christians to spread the gospel. Diane Hamlin closed us in prayer. Our morning worship hour began with Elaine Fields playing the piano and Mike Fields and the church choir leading us in the hymns “At Calvary� and “He Lives.� Berl O’Brein opened us in prayer.. Bro. Steve welcomed everyone and we had a time of memory scripture and praise reports. Everyone enjoyed sharing hugs and handshakes with our church family and visitors as we got into our time of meet and greet. We were excited to have Bro. Roger Stacy visiting with us. Bro. Steve did a great job singing our special music “The Anchor Holds.� Children’s church was dismissed to Jennifer Fields. Carlee Fields was excited about learning her lesson on Jonah and the whale. Bro. Steve’s morning message was from Luke 5:1-

By Connie Cooper how God wants to make us into vessels that are of His design and purpose. The song Linda wrote and performed was called, “The Potter and the Vessel.� The gourmet talents of our young people showed forth in the meal that they prepared for the church on Sunday evening. The three teams competed for the judges’ approval. Each of the three teams won recognition in one of the categories of salads, main dish and desserts. My personal favorite was the Rainbow Lemon Pie in the dessert category. But all the dishes were great and were “winners.� Our drama team got started on rehearsal for their Easter Sunrise service performance. It will tell the story of the resurrection of Jesus in a unique way. Several attended a birthday party for Miss Louise on Saturday, and this week we send birthday blessings to Cody Cooper, Patricia Rickman and Nancy Whitley. We are looking forward to Bro. Don returning home this week...(especially I am). So he and I both will see you in church on Sunday!

By Diane Hamlin 11 entitled Faith. Stephen Fields dismissed services in prayer as the hymn “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus� was sung. Our Sunday night services began with Mike Fields leading us in the hymn “Face to Face.� Keith Hamlin opened us in prayer. We dismissed to our discipleship training classes. Mike Fields opened us in prayer then did a good job teaching us our lesson, “The Way to Happiness.� The Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:3-12 point the way to true happiness that is untouched by all of the circumstances of life. Diane Hamlin closed us in prayer. Our Sunday night worship service began with Elaine Fields playing the piano and Mike Fields leading us in the hymns “There Is Power in the Blood� and “Stepping in the Light.� Our special was a blessing as all the children of the church sang I got peace, joy and love like a river. Bro. Steve’s message was from Psalm 100 make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Mike Fields dismissed us in prayer as the hymn “His Way with Thee� was sung. After services we welcomed Berl O’Brein to the Keely Mill Church Family. Read your Bibles and be people of prayer this week.

Sunday School for Shut-In When you’re ready, please read Matthew 27:2. in the advisory letter from the Apostle Paul writes to the church these words: “If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies.� Philippians 2:1 KJV. The letters from the Apostle Paul were read in the churches then. The word is a challenge to the readers and the hearers. If there is any “comfort of love� or any expectation of any comfort then what does Paul advise? If there is any “fellowship of the Spirit� visitation from, communion with and partnership in the Spirit, then what does Paul advise? If there is “any bowels� any compassions and sympathies of Jesus Christ, what would Paul advise? The word “bowels: refers to the deepest sympathy and pitty even empathy of agape love which works in every Christian. We are called by His name: We love Him because He first loved us, He died for us in the cruelest of manners (Isaiah 53:3), God offered Jesus, the only sacrifice worthy of giving redemption to an unlovable race (Isaiah 53:6). No one else would volunteer to save such a people. No one

could. Love is unconditional. He was the only volunteer from Heaven, Jesus was the only one qualified the perfect volunteer. If there’s any “mercies: any amount of mercy any kind of mercy any forgiveness in our heart, our Spirit connection, we’ll give mercy to others by grace. Always at the direction of the Holy Spirit. Paul also wrote tot he church of Corinth: “Now the Lord is that Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty but we all with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord� Second Corinthians 3: 17, 18 KJV. We will go from this glory to His spectacular glory. At salvation we’re placed into the process of glory. “Therefore seeing we have this ministry as we have received mercy, we faint not:� Second Corinthians 4:1 KJV. Every one of us has the ministry of mercy because God gave us His unwavering mercy in that He sent his only begotten son to be our payment in full the Propitiation for our sin through the shed blood of Jesus that we have received heavenly mercy and thereby we persevere.

Dyer Church of Christ Morning worship services had an attendance 115 and 87 in Sunday school. The message for the morning service was from the book of Hebrews 11:1-3, In the beginning “God�. God planned and by choice is our creator. God commanded the creation and by faith we understand that we are surrounded by God’s creation. God, it is he that hath made us and not we ourselves, Psalms 100. The message for the evening service came from the book of Genesis 2:1-2, The seventh day. God rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done. There is no record of the Sabbath until Exodus. In the New Testament there is no question Jesus kept the Sabbath under the Law of Moses and in Acts 2 the church started the first day of the week. Remember in Prayer: Jan Tharpe, Lyle Tate, Ray Hunt and family, all of our shutins and those in the nursing homes. Praise God we have had several baptisms over the last few weeks. Matt Mingle, Ryan Mingle and Ethan Oliver decided to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. May God bless these young men

and may they continue to grow with the help of their church family. The Sunday morning classes started the new curriculum this week. There are now resources for our teachers and adult classes. Thanks to our Elders and Deacons for putting this together to help reinforce learning in all classes. Our youth enjoyed the area wide Youth Devotional at the Rutherford Church of Christ Sunday night after services. There was an attendance of 125 youth from many congregations that were able to attend and we were glad to be apart of such a wonderful evening. Thanks to everyone who put this together for our young people. Announcements: We move the fish fry to Friday March 11th at 5:30 p.m., at the church for everyone. If you’d like bring something or help out please let Bobby Sullivan know. There is a baby basket in the foyer for Nicole Alford. Nichole is expecting a girl in June. Mark your calendars Logan and Faith Abbott will be hosting a 25th anniversary party for Don and Donna Abbott at the church on March 27th. Please let Logan or Faith know if you plan to attend.

Laneview Baptist Church We had a wonderful day at our church Sunday. In the morning service we were blessed with a special from Johnny Cavender and then we enjoyed a few songs from Saul To Paul. What an awesome way to start the day. Bro. Darryl’s message spoke to us about the hopelessness we have all felt and unfortunately so many still do. It is a feeling that there is no earthly cure for. Only when you become a Child of God will you be set free from the hopelessness that is our destiny if we do not turn to our Savior. We must turn to Him whole heartly not almost or half way this is not an option. There is nothing on this earth that can give you the true sense of love and hope that Jesus gives us. Why do we have this hope because God sent His only Son to die on the cross to save us from satans grip. Our lives will still have sorrow,pain, joy and sadness but through the loving

grace of Our father we will have the victory. With Jesus we will overcome. Don’t put off till tommorrow what need’s to be done right now we are not guaranteed another hour or another minute on this earth. It’s the most important decision you’ll ever make. Just ask He’s right there with you waiting! Scripture Ref: 1 Cor. 13- 6 an 7 “Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.� In our evening service we enjoyed a wonderful blessing having the group “Saul To Paul� in concert. What a joy it is to see young men that are using their God given talents to serve Him. Upcomming events: March 18 Michael Combs Concert for tickets call 749-0070. Please remember our sick and pray for the lost. “God is good all the time and all the time God is good!�

Lowrance Chapel By Jerry Bell We all enjoyed another day of worship and fellowship last Sunday. Peggy white is now in the Dyer Nursing Home taking physical therapy. She is recovering from hip and arm surgery following a fall at her home. Barbara Wiley is still at home and not able to attend services. We need to pray that they will soon be able to return and be with us. In James chapter one, verse 2-4 we read these Words, “My brethren count it all joy when fall into divers (many) temptation; knowing this that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” Our lesson will be “the value of Truth.” Value is defined as worth. It has been said that worth can be seen as the price we place on things, regardless of what someone paid for it. “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure” is a statement about worth. Truth is a fact or statement that has purity from falsehood or conformity to facts or reality. The value we place upon truth is important! The less value we place upon truth determines whether or not we are willing to be drawn away from the truth. The more value we place upon truth determines how we are going to face outward

lives to be in accordance with the peace of God. Outward temptation also produces for the Christian, value in truth because it completes us without leaving blemish, leaving us to finish our race. (v. 4) God has granted us this completeness by the blood of Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 2:10) Patience works toward our salvation. The patience of Jesus is seen in His trials immediately preceding His death. He is patient with different beatings, multiple trials with no evidence to convict him, when nailed tot he cross and finally dying upon that tree. The sufferings of Christ show us the model of patience working to create completeness. We must be patient in our race to the end! The Christian cannot stop before the finish line! Stopping before the finish line means that we cannot obtain our prize. Temptations come our way and how we react to them shoes us how Christ like we really are. How do you face trials? Do you face them with joy and patience in your heart? Are you complete in the eyes of God? If not, then consider the plan that God designed so that you are washed in the blood of Christ through baptism.

temptations like those our friends, family and associates those who will persecute us and those that speak evil towards us. Outward temptation produces for the Christian, value in truth because it creates joy (v.2) You can rejoice in the face of trials and temptation because God blesses those who suffer such. (Matthew 5:10-12) One should remember that the temptations facing the Christians being persecuted are not a curse or calamity for sin, but for placing value upon truth. In the face of persecution, the majority of people tend to “wish” for happiness rather than “Experience” happiness. Outward temptation produces for the Christian, value in truth because it completes us without blemish leaving us to finish the race. (v3) There is no reward for suffering for sin, only punishment. God does not reward people for sin! We glorify God because of our righteousness, not sin. (1 Peter 4:15-16) The value of truth resides in the confidence of God and motivation to endure trials. Faith is the confidence which allows us to face these trials with confidence. (Hebrew11:1) Working patience implies that through these trials we change our

A large group enjoyed our Wednesday evening prayer meeting and Bible study. Our minister, Brother Corey Meggs spoke on Grace: the environment of spiritual growth. We discovered without God’s grave we were dead but it has made us alive in Christ. Our service to Him is out “thank you� to God. 69 were welcomed Sunday morning with 10 visitors, who are our honored guests. The special music was “I know what Jesus did for me� sung by our minister of music, Brother Terry Owens. We encountered stormy weather Sunday morning as Brother Corey spoke on several storms in our Bible. His message was entitled “Strength for the storm,� from Matthew 7:24-27. He told about, the wise man and foolish man who built their house on rock and sand, Jesus and his disciples in a ship when a storm came upon them, Jesus rebuked and calmed it. We all have storms in our daily lives. He explained the only time we can find a rainbow, which is a sign of God’s mercy and judgment; first we must endure the storm. Sunday evening Brother Corey continued our study on Halley’s Challenge, looking at an overview of the book of Numbers.Itstartswithacensus, journey to the Promised Land, sitting up the Tabernacle, the many sad commentaries of the children of Israel as they traveled and complained, they lost their opportunity to see the Promised Land. He introduced us to a talking donkey in Numbers 22:22-34. Brother Corey explained how all of these point to Christ. Remember to turn your clocks forward Saturday night we enter daylight savings time.

Brother Stephen Powell, our minister of students, told a story of a preacher who went to visit a family. No one answered the door so he took a church card and wrote Revelation 3:30 on it and stuck it on the door. The next Sunday the preacher was surprised to find the same card in the offering plate with Genesis 3:10 written on it. If you want a chuckle, look these verses up.

By Alice Ernest To begin the March 2 meeting for the 19 Golden Agers assembled in Dyer FBC Family Life center, Brother Jerry Legg expressed a prayer of thanksgiving for the food that everyone was soon eating heartily. Brother Michael Barnett, minister of children and youth of Dyer FBC led the prayer of intercessions for those ill which include: Tyree White, who now resides in the McNairy Medical Center of Selmer and for Kay Pafford, Barbara Watson and Hilda Patterson. He also prayed for God’s upholding strength for Martha Faye Pack and Bill’s other family members in the home going of Bill Pack. Kenneth McEwen expressed gratefulness to God in his full recovery of heart problems and appreciation for prayers and personal contacts during his convalescence from fellow Golden Agers. He and Shirley Shull led the group in singing “I Surrender All� and “Tell it to Jesus.� Kenny’s solo was “He touched me� which he prefaced with an insight into his weekend plans of joining others singing in a shopping mall of Tupelo, Mississippi, with 300-500 listeners anticipated. Anne Thompson was pianist for the morning’s music. Brother DeWayne Goodgine centered his devotional on the need of spiritual hearts tuned to God. By nature everyone had a sick heart that needs a heart transplant. Jesus is the searching Savior who has the solution of indwelling his spirit into the human heart to become new. Proverbs 4:23 state “Guard our heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.�

The TCR deadline is Friday @ 5 p.m.

Sports & Education GC Ladies end season in overtime heat BY LORI CATHEY Last week, the Gibson County girls’ basketball team experienced the lows of competitive sports with a gut-wrenching overtime loss against McNairy Central in the 7AA Regional Basketball Tournament to end their season. The Lady Pioneers had to play the game without starting senior guard Kelley Tyree due to an illness. Gibson County scored the first basket of the game with a 3-pointer from Khadijah Alexander but Gibson

County had trouble hitting the 3-pointers in the first half with 1 of 7 attempts. McNairy Central held an 11-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. Lady Pioneer Tori Reedy made a move to the basket, found the net and drew a foul to set up a traditional threepoint play to make it 13-10 (McNairy Central) with 6:07 left in the second quarter. The Lady Bobcats maintained momentum to head into the locker room up 26-17 at halftime. Lady Pioneer Courtney Haynes hit a pull-up jumper

with 4 seconds remaining to end the third quarter and give McNairy Central a 4834 lead to begin the fourth. The Lady Pioneers opened the fourth with a 10-0 run with back-to-back 3-pointers from Kortney Tyree and Khadijah Alexander. A hustling play by Kortney Tyree forced a steal and a great pass to GC senior Alyssa White for a turnaround jumper that put Gibson County down by four points (48-44) with

5:43 left in the quarter. For the next four minutes both teams swapped baskets back and forth. Gibson County scored seven straight points when Kortney Tyree grabbed an offensive rebound and got a stick back basket, Haynes nailed a jump shot and Tyree hit a 3-pointer from right wing to tie the game 60 all. Gibson County’s Jasmine Whittemore’s shot at the buzzer rolled off the rim

and the game went into overtime 62-62. Gibson County opened the overtime up with a basket from White to give the Lady Pioneers a 64-62 lead. GC’s Whittemore hit a 3pointer from the left wing with 30 second left to get within two points 69-67 but The Lady Bobcats made their free throws to extend the lead to 73-67 for a final score. Gibson County head coach Michael Hart said,” We fell a little short at the end. We want to get back to state. This team has accomplished

a lot considering where most everyone had us finishing in fifth or sixth place in the district. The girls played with determination, heart, character and never gave up all year long.” Alyssa White lead Gibson County with 20 points, 3 steals and 11 rebounds and Jasmine Whittemore added 11 points and 2 assists. Kortney Tyree had 10 points and 2 assists, Tori Reedy 9 points, 3 steal and 8 rebounds, Courtney Haynes 8 points, Khadijah Alexander 6 points and Amber Rea 3 points.

NOTICE Over the next few months, the warm weather will bring people outdoors to work in their yards and gardens and begin getting swimming pools ready. GIBSON COUNTY WATER would like to ensure that our customers are aware of the potential dangers to the water system associated with these activities. A garden hose submersed in any liquid or attached to certain devices used to spray pesticides or herbicides forms a cross connection. A cross connection is a situation where a possible source of contamination is directly linked to our public water system. If the end of your hose is connected to a chemical container, swimming pool or other contaminant during a water main break or fire, the substance can be siphoned back into the water system. This condition, known as back siphonage, could cause a public health hazard. Devices are available to prevent this problem; however the best solution is to always be careful how you use your hose. Please help us provide a safe supply of water to all of our customers. Remember, never stick a water hose in anything you would not want to drink. For more information on cross connections and how to protect against them, call GIBSON COUNTY WATER at 8550411.

THE JOYLANDERS - The Joylanders will perform at the Gibson County High School Theater March 18-20. This is the family gospel group’s 40th Anniversary. Members are (front row) Allison Griggs, Nell Wimberly, Vanessa Griggs, Jay Griggs, (back row) Perry Wimberly and Jason Griggs.

The Joylanders celebrate from page 1 Vanessa, Jay Vincent, and Allison Riley Griggs. Perry is the manager of the group and serves as the group’s Emcee and takes care of all the booking. Perry’s wife, Nell or better known to everyone as “Mama Nell,” sings alto with the group. Mama Nell is known for her vibrant spirit. Perry and Nell have three daughters, all of whom have been with the group at one time or another. Presently their youngest daughter, Vanessa, sings soprano and plays acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, and electric guitar. Vanessa is very talented and plays many more instruments than the above mentioned. Vanessa is married to Jason Griggs. Jason sings lead and plays bass guitar and acoustic guitar with the group. Jason is an ordained minister. Jason preaches several revivals per year along with the Joylanders singing special music at the services. The style of gospel music that the Joylanders sing is traditional/southern gospel and bluegrass gospel. They incorporate older songs and new songs. The Joylanders

use a blend of live music and tracks. No matter the style of music nor the instrumentation of a song, the message is still crystal clear, Jesus saves. The Joylanders sincerely hope to show the way of the cross to the lost and dying while at the same time encouraging the Christian to a closer walk with God. The Joylanders currently travel and sing on weekends. They book about 150 –160 dates per year. They also travel on a love-offering basis, trusting that God

knows the need and in turn, He will supply the needs by impressing upon men and women to plant a seed into the ministry of the Joylanders. The Joylanders currently sing in about nine states, but will sing wherever God opens the door. The Joylanders would be thrilled to come and worship with you and your church and share the goodness of the Lord. For more information call Perry Wimberly at 8552423 or log on to www. thejoylanders.com.
