The two of them would race on by their opponents and score the best time then grab the ribbons in the barrel, pole, sack, and flag races. When they passed that starting point and the dust settled, Sandra and Dot were usually happy, and all of us watching were smiling, too. They meant business. They aimed to win.

Insight & Opinion Stop killing time and live your life

Clayburn Peeples reports:

both older and younger adults evaluate time’s passage about equally. Only at about ten years ago do older folks rate the speed of time differently than young people do, and then only slightly so. It seems that a mere four percent of our perceptions of how fast time has flown in the past are influenced by our ages. More than twice as important in determining how we perceive the swiftness of time’s passing during a given period of our lives is how busy and rushed we were during that period. That may be why women, who generally report being more rushed than men, also perceive time as having passed more quickly than men do. But the few empirical tests done on the subject have been controversial and nonconclusive at best, and theories abound as to why so many older people think time is going faster than they are. One interesting one is that when you experience something for the first time, more information gets stored in your brain’s memory chamber. Early memories of events are denser, researchers say, than later ones. All of that detail in our early memories fools us into thinking the events that made up those memories took longer than they really did. I know that good lawyers

“One of the biggest mistakes a man makes,” my father, in a rare philosophical mood, once said, “is to think the second part of his life will be as long as the first. It’s not but half as long.” He wasn’t, of course, the first person to observe that time seems to go faster as a person ages. Indeed, it is an article of faith among those over 50 that it does, subjectively, at least. Someone has even come up with a subjective half-way point in a human life. It is age 17. Oh my goodness! That means the first 17 years of a person’s life seem to take as long to pass as the entire rest of his or her life. Looks like Dad was right. Or was he? When researchers do controlled studies regarding peoples’ perceptions of the speed of time passage, very few differences emerge between older and younger study participants. When asked about events in the last year, or even the last five years,

work hard on their opening lines because they know jurors will remember the first things they hear more than anything else that is said in a trial. That means that the first thing a lawyer says in his or her closing argument will stay with the jury longer than his or her final closing plea. People who study such things speak of primacy and recency, and they say primacy, being first, is always remembered better than recency, being last. Maybe it’s the same with life’s events. We remember the summers of our childhood as being almost endless, but now the kids get out of school one week, and then it seems like only a few weeks later that someone tells us the World Series is about to start. Ever notice how, when you’re driving to a new place it always seems to take a lot longer to get there than it does to get back home? That’s because our brains are writing down all the details they can on the trip out, noticing everything along the way, and that takes up a lot of memory space. But then on the way back, those same brains go on a kind of cruise control, and that makes the trip seem shorter. Another theory about our perceptions of time’s passage is that something happens to our brains as we age. Go up to someone

occurred between April 30 and May 18. Numerous residents and businesses that have registered with FEMA for assistance have already received an SBA loan application in the mail. If you have received an SBA disaster loan application for physical damages, it must be completed and returned to SBA by July 6 to be eligible for other federal assistance.

For many renters and homeowners, completing and returning the loan application is crucial to accessing complete disaster recovery assistance. Renters and homeowners not approved by the SBA for a disaster loan may be referred to FEMA to be considered for several types of grants that are available only for applicants not approved for SBA disaster loans.

FEMA registration from page 1 property and you disagree with the findings, you may appeal the decision by calling the FEMA helpline for instructions on the appeal process, at 800-621-3362 (FEMA) or (TTY) 800-4627585 for those with speech and hearing disabilities. Appeals may also be filed by visiting a Disaster Recovery Center. To find the center nearest you, go to drcLocator.jsp. To be eligible for FEMA assistance you must register by July 6, 2010.. FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

Disaster recovery assistance is available without regard to race, color, religion, nationality, sex, age, disability, English proficiency or economic status. If you or someone you know has been discriminated against, call FEMA toll-free at 800-621FEMA (3362). For TTY call 800-462-7585. FEMA’s temporary housing assistance and grants for public transportation expenses, medical and dental expenses, and funeral and burial expenses do not require individuals to apply for an SBA loan. However, applicants who receive SBA loan applications must submit them to SBA loan officers to be eligible for assistance that covers personal property, vehicle repair or replacement, and moving and storage expenses.

from page 1 separate Disaster Recovery Center operations to speed recovery in the 45 counties declared for Individual Assistance. “More than 13,000 Tennessee residents have visited the Disaster Recovery Centers to ask questions and get help with applications for assistance,” said Federal Coordinating Officer Gracia B. Szczech. “The number of visits is declining, which is why we are closing several of them and transitioning others to loan outreach centers. However, people from any county can continue to visit any of the recovery centers that remain open.” Officials stress that individuals are not required to visit a DRC to register for assistance or to obtain answers to their questions. “Although TEMA and FEMA are closing these centers, we want to assure all of those affected by the flooding that our specialists will continue to be available,’’ Szczech said. “FEMA will continue to be represented at the Disaster Loan Outreach Centers.” Also, those affected by the storms and flooding can register or get answers to questions by telephoning 800621-FEMA (3362) or (TTY) 800-462-7585. They also can register online anytime at www.DisasterAssistance. gov. To be eligible for FEMA assistance, they must register by July 6, 2010. The re-opening of the Gibson County recovery center as Disaster Loan OutreachCenterdemonstrates the commitment of the SBA to ensure that qualified individuals and businesses receive the help they need to recover from the severe storms and flooding that

Yet another theory is that we literally “lose track of time,” at least little segments of it, as we age. All those momentary mental lapses that cause us to forget why we opened the refrigerator door or what it was that we went to the store for in the first place are time blanks, and as we get older, they become more frequent, and remembered time grows shorter. But even for young people, time can be brutal in the swiftness of its passage.

with a watch and ask them to estimate when a minute has passed. People in their 20’s usually come within 10 seconds of getting it right, but people in their 70’s usually guess it after about 90 seconds. Then there’s the most popular theory, the idea that when you’re ten, a year is only a tenth of your life, but that when you’re 50, it is one fiftieth. Thus, your frame of reference tells you that time is going five times faster than it tells the ten-year-old it is passing. That would explain why Christmas takes forever to come for a child, but seems to arrive about four to five months too early for many adults.

A reception honors Hester The Tri-City Reporter regretfully ran an incorrect article last week about Bill Hester and his 50 years of service to the community as a pharmacist. The article had been changed and updated by a family member. I placed the wrong article in the paper in error. Below is the article as it should have run, with a few updates. Cindy East, managing editor A reception was held Saturday, June 5 in honor of Bill Hester for his 50 years of service as a pharmacist for his community at Hester Drug Company in Rutherford. Bill Hester is the true epitome of the term “pillar of the community.” His love of God, family, friends and his customers has been a staple in this community for 50 long years. Hester moved to Rutherford within 24 hours of graduating from pharmacy school in 1960 and went to work in his uncle Henry Hester’s drug store. He and his wife Shirley grew up in Gibson and went all 12 years of school there. Hester graduated from high school as the valedictorian of his class and then graduated as valedictorian again from UT Pharmacy

School in Memphis. “He had fantastic offers for positions in laboratories but he turned them down,” said his wife Shirley. “He is a people person and wanted to serve people.” Hester became a partner in the store in 1963 with his uncle Henry and Hoyt Kemp. They remained partners until his uncle’s death in 1973. Bill and Hoyt remained partners until Hoyt retired in 1989. Jim Turner, Richard Skiles and Cara Marvin all worked alongside Mr. Bill through the years. He worked 70 hours a week for many years, but found time for his family and his church, First Baptist Church in Rutherford. He was ordained as a deacon when they first moved to Rutherford and has been a deacon continuously ever since. He was on the Rutherford School board for many years and was serving as chairman when the schools were consolidated. Today, Hester’s daughter, Doris Denton, is continuing the family tradition and working along side her father as a Certified Pharmacy Tech. Candace McCaig, received her Doctorate in Pharmacy in 2006 and then “joined the family” at Hester Drug. “She is just like

another daughter to him,” says Denton. Mr. Bill is now filling prescriptions for five generations of customers. Doris and Candace are committed to Rutherford and it’s surrounding communities for the generations to come. Hester was voted the Best of the Best Pharmacist by the Tri-City Reporter readership in 2009 and was also honored to be Grand Marshall of the Davy Crockett Parade in 2007. Hester’s favorite activity is gardening. He loves to give his homegrown vegetables to seniors, his employees and other people in town. He even shells peas and has them ready to cook. About his years of success in business Hester said, “We try to price prescriptions the way we would if we were standing on the other side of the counter.” This gratitude for his customers and attitude of service was passed on to him by his Uncle Henry and Mr. Bill is still carrying out and passing on that work ethic today. “Our motto is WWBD – What Would Bill Do?,” says Doris. “If you can get that answer right, you can be pretty sure you’ve done right.”

Proclamation honors Hester A proclamation of the mayor of Rutherford in recognition of the service of William Henry Hester to the people of Rutherford was read by Mayor Keith Cardwell at the reception honing Hester held Saturday, June 5th. The proclamation stated that Hester came to work in Rutherford in June of 1960 and since that time has provided 18,250 days of ‘round the clock’ service to the people of Rutherford. The services of Hester have been absolutely essential to the health and well-being of the community. Hester is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his service at Hester Drug Company, a singular accomplishment worthy of the community’s recognition and gratitude. In consideration of these facts, be it proclaimed by Keith Cardwell, mayor of

Rutherford, as follows: On behalf of the Town of Rutherford and the entire community, I hereby extend to Mr. William Henry Hester our sincere and heartfelt gratitude for his years of tireless service

to our town and; The town of Rutherford extends its best wishes to Mr. Hester as he celebrates a halfcentury of business in our community, proclaimed this 5th day of June, 2010.

Pharmacy & Your Health Recommended Treatments for Hemophilia Hemophilia is an abnormality in the blood clotting process due to deficiency in one or more clotting factors. There are several types of hemophilia. Hemophilia A, the most common type, is caused by an insufficient amount of clotting factor VIII. Hemophilia B is caused by a deficiency in the amount of clotting factor IX, and also occurs commonly. Persons with hemophilia may experience bleeding for longer duration following an injury. Signs and symptoms include large bruises, joint pain, nose bleeds, and bleeding of the gums. Although there is no cure for hemophilia, different treatments are available, depending on severity of the condition. Clotting factor replacement may be administered to prevent bleeding. For mild hemophilia, desmopressin (DDAVP) may be prescribed. This hormone works to increase the release of clotting factor, which works to stop bleeding. Antifibrinolytic medications include tranexamic acid (Lysteda) and epsilon aminocaproic acid (EACA). These medications inhibit fibrinolysis by inhibiting the substance plasminogen, which improves the stability of the clot. Persons with hemophilia should not take aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), because of the increased risk of bleeding.

The Grapevine Our Sunday morning service at St. Paul was opened with singing “Thank You Lord� and we certainly thank God for all of His goodness and mercy. Pastor Pounds delivered a very good message, entitled “It’s The Precious Blood of Jesus� found in 1 Peter 1:18 and 19 and other scriptures. The mass choir provided the music. We had several members absent. Sister Tenthy Pounds went to Memphis to hear her cousin in concert. Min. Jasmine Williams was in the hospital. Rev. Michelle Skinner was working in San Antonia, Texas last week and did not get home until Saturday night. Dan, Stacie and Brandy Belmont, Jasmine and Ja’da Pits were vacationing in Florida.

Lowrance Chapel By Jerry Bell We had another great day on Sunday as we assembled together to praise our God in song, prayer, and worship. The Lord’s Day is His and we should want to give Him all the glory, honor and praise. What would you say if I told you that I know someone who has restored life to dead bodies? Someone who fed 5,000 men plus the women and children, using only five loaves of bread and two small fish, and that he had more food left over than he had at the start? The Bible says this and much, much more about Jesus of Nazareth! During Jesus’ own earthly life and ministry, He was a wellknown miracle worker. Most have probably studied the matter and concluded that Jesus did, in fact, work

miracles. But there still are those in our day who doubt it, or perhaps even deny that Jesus preformed miracles. A miracle is not just something unusual (even highly unusual) or amazing, as having your car roll over at a high rate of speed into a ditch filled with water and coming out without a scratch. A true miracle is an event which supersedes the natural laws which govern and control the universe. Jesus superseded the law of gravity by walking on the water. He superseded the natural healing process by healing people instantly, and even raising the dead. Just because God does something, or is involved in an event, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a miracle. Some do not believe in the miracles of

Father, daughter vacation in Egypt Derek Pitt and daughter, Emma Pitt toured sites in Egypt. Derek flew from his home in Hawaii to Emma’s home in London, England. They visited sites such as the Great Pyramids at Giza near Cario. The pyramid of Kufu at Giza is the largest structure ever built and it is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient

world still in existence. The Pyramids were built for the Pharaohs of Egypt. The Egyptian pyramids are ancient shaped masonry structures located in Egypt. All Egyptian pyramids were built on the West banks of the Nile. Derek’s parents are the late Larry Pitt and Betty Pitt formerly from Dyer.

TRIP TO EGYPT - Derek Pitt and his daughter Emma recently traveled to Egypt to see the Pyramids of Giza.

Jesus because they have not personally witnessed them. Thomas said, “When I see, then I’ll believe� (John 20:24-29). He had a “faith� problem in that he wanted to see and touch the nail holes driven in Jesus’ hand and the opening left by the spear that pierced His side. He believed after he thrust his finger in the nail hole and put his hand in the opening in Jesus’ side as proof of Jesus’ have been raised from the dead. There are many modern day “faith healers� proclaiming that they can still do miracles today. These people are not honest as they can not perform miracles as Jesus did, “less raise someone from the dead.� No one that I know of today has the supernatural ability as our Lord had. We should believe in Jesus’ miracles because of the reliability of the Bible. It has proven itself over and over again to be scientifically, historically, and in every way accurate. We should believe in them because of the sheer number of recorded miracles of Jesus is well over three dozen. The Bible also says that He did many more wonderful works that could not be written down. Jesus did a variety of miracles and they all were verifiable. The prophet Isaiah predicted that the Messiah would work miracles. (Isaiah 35:5-6) The miracles of Jesus attest to His identity as the Christ, the Son of God. That identity, in turn, gives meaning to His sacrificial death upon the cross, and to that crowning miracle of all miracles, His resurrection from the dead. He also has the power to save you from you sins, and to raise you from the dead at the last day. If we can be of any service to you or you, please let us know. Have a great day.

Keely Mill Prayer opened our Sunday morning services. Steven Fields led us in the hymn “Love Divine, All Love Excelling.” We all dismissed to our Sunday school classes. Janice Chrisman opened our class in prayer for the many prayer requests we had. Keith Hamlin did a good job teaching the adult class their lesson four ways to promote church unity from 1 Corinthians 1-3. Christians are to promote the unity of their churches and avoid actions that contribute to divisions. We should be linking hands and hearts as we labor together for God’s glory. Jarid Warren closed us in prayer. Our worship hour began with Elaine Fields playing the piano and Kathy Hooper the organ as Mike Fields and the choir led us in the hymns “To God be the Glory,” “Higher Ground” and “Are You Washed in the Blood.” Dakota Warren opened us in prayer before we had our time of meet and greet with our church family and the many visitors we had on Sunday. Rejoice in the Lord always. Bro. Steve blessed us with our special music as he sang “When Jesus is all that I have He’s all that I need.” Bro. Steve’s morning message was entitled ‘Winning the Race’ from 1 Corinthians 9:24-27. Mike Fields dismissed our services in prayer as the hymn “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”

By Sarah Allen forget to tell them how much we appreciate them. She passed out bookmarkers telling the children each one makes a difference. She closed in prayer. Sandy, Lindsey, and Lauren Whitley sang so beautifully, “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.” Bro. Don started his sermon asking if we ever played Chinese Fire Drill? His point was we need a designated plan in our life. God has a plan to make sure you are in the right place at the right time. We are in a world that is crying out for an answer. There are people around us who are on their way to a devil’s hell. People are devastated without work. The call on your life is to proclaim the gospel. If you have not received a call to do something for God, something is wrong. The greatest mission field in the world is America. Leadership is the key. You must be teaching and preaching the gospel wherever you go.

By Diane Hamlin was sung. Several spent the afternoon in Jackson serving where needed at the RIFA soup kitchen. Our Sunday night services began with Steven Fields leading us in the hymn “The Lily of the Valley.” Bro. John opened us in prayer and we all dismissed to our discipleship training classes.

The choir sang a new song, “I’m Gonna Leave Here Shoutin.” Brother Jason’s message “Precept vs. Doctrines” was taken from Mary 7:1-13. It was good to have Brother Jason’s parents with us. They have been visiting those boys for a few days. Bill Hester had a big weekend with all his family, celebrating 50 years in the drug store. Henry and his family came in from Florida. Sunday evening Kasey sang, “Come to Jesus” for special music. The service was a little different “Ask the Pastor” question and answers! As we

Sports & Education County gals lead North all stars BY STEVE SHORT Gibson Co. players and coaches led the way as the North girl all stars dominated the South 81-58 in the Golden Circle West Tennessee All Star game at Liberty High School June 5. Four of the five starters, and 6 of the roster players were from Gibson Co. The coaches were Louis Johnson of Humboldt, Larry Eddings of Bradford, Louis Johnson of Humboldt, and Nathan Russell of Gibson Co. High School. Patra Hubbard, Humboldtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quick guard, scored a game-high 22 points and took home MVP honors. Heather Butler (Gibson Co.) and sub Raechelle Bolden (Trenton) added 13 points each. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was surprised at Hubbard; she played really well,â&#x20AC;? said Nathan Russell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Raechelle Bolden from Trenton also played really well. On every rebound she was under there trying to get it. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hardnosed kid. Overall, everybody played real well. As a coach I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do anything but just give them the ball and say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;go play.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It was a

real exciting game. I was glad I had that front row seat.â&#x20AC;? Hubbard set the tone early with a 3-pointer and scored 10 points in 10 minutes of the first half, helping the North lead 34-21 lead at intermission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a lot of fun,â&#x20AC;? said Gibson Co. star Heather Butler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normally we have to play against such good talent, but it was good to get to play with them. It was a lot of fun playing with Patra. I knew she would knock down shots when I got her the ball, and I knew she would get it to you when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re open.â&#x20AC;? Coach Larry Eddings was impressed with Trentonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bolden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bolden played really well. And Patra and Butler played well together. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how high the basketball I.Q. is of these girls. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an honor to be part of a game like this and to be around kids who understand how to play and who sacrificed over four years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to play with kids you battled against for four years.â&#x20AC;? Eddings said the six players from Gibson Co. on the roster showed the commitment of coaches,

parents and kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows they are committed to doing what it takes to play at a high level,â&#x20AC;? he said. Other North scoring: Amber Rechis (Westview) 5, Aubrey Reedy (Gibson Co.) 7, Heather Griffin (Gibson Co.) 8, Jenna Frazier (Gleason) 5, and Katie McCall (Greenfield) 7. Also playing were Molly Wallsmith (Bradford) and Kim Edenfield (Gleason). The South was led by Emily Rivers of Bolivar with 11 points. Other South scoring: Brittany Montgomery (Scotts Hill) 5, Matrekia Minter (Bolivar) 7, Carnesha Bradley (Hardin Co.) 2, Halie Miller (USJ) 5, Rachel Savage (Lexington) 6, Sharon Morgan (Middleton) 5, Jasmine Morgan (Liberty Tech) 3, Monica Womack (North Side) 5, Raquel Miller (Liberty Tech) 6, Tiffany Keck (Lexington) 3. In boys action, the South boys rallied from a 17-point second half deficit to edge the North 88-87. Darren Dunbar of Humboldt scored 8 points and Mark Vaughn of Milan 7 points for the North.

Gibson County High School spring art show winners BY AMANDA LOVERN Gibson County High School’s annual spring art show has passed, but what exactly was it? The Art Show gives the students a chance to show off their artistic abilities by entering assignments from art class, or art worked on outside of school into a show. “The Art Show is an opportunity for art students at GCHS to showcase their artwork from the current semester, as well as compete for awards in a variety of different categories such as drawing, painting, and sculpture,” explained Aaron Perry, one of Gibson County High School’s Art teachers. The Art Show was set up in the new building between the theatre and the gym. Art students set up tall boards to hang up art pieces so students and faculty could view and admire the pieces on their way to class, or as they attended the Art Show after school. Each semester, the school hires an independent judge to choose the winners in each category. “Usually I or Mrs. West will ask an artist or art teacher from outside of the school system who is unfamiliar with the students or their work to come and judge the show,” commented Perry. The judge picks winners from all types of mediums including: oil pastels, acrylic paints, oil paints, clay, dry pastels, watercolor, and many more. There are a number of factors that go into the decisions the judge makes when choosing winners, however, these factors vary depending on the judge’s personality and taste. “We try to get a different judge with a different art background, age, personality, etc. each time so that the

same types of artwork are not chosen every time for winners in the show,” Perry added. The judge then chooses which art pieces he thinks are the most successful from each type of media. Pieces were also made available for sale. Students at GCHS often choose to sell their pieces at the show. There were no set prices on any of the pieces. Prices varied depending on the student and the interested buyer. In addition, clay trays are sold every year at both the Spring and Fall Art Shows. They vary in colors, sizes, and prices, and could serve a number of purposes, such as a key holder at your front door, or just a decorative item. Gibson County High School’s Spring Art Show went great this year. It was obvious it took much preparation and time. There were many talented artists and winners and the art pieces were wonderful. There were three winners chosen for each category; first, second, and third places as well as a student choice award and honorable mention. The following students were recognized for their outstanding abilities: Sketch Book HM: Red Stripes- Zack Dodd 3. Faded Face- Summer Lyons 2. Eye- Chynna McCaskill 1.

I love ornamental grasses and have several varieties. We also have banana trees, purple cone flowers, rubeckia, iris, coreopsis, clematis vines, day lilies and black-eyed Susans in the back yard. My favorite color combinations are pink and yellow and purple and white,â&#x20AC;? said Cindy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Danny does the mowing and trimming and always helps out by digging the holes for plantings.â&#x20AC;?

Carey raced right by from page 1 deadly with her two handed set shot. A three point shot today has nothing to do with her shots when she played ball. She consistently hit from the three-point range and beyond when there was no such thing as one. Sandra kept her competitive spirit when she found that she had stage III ovarian cancer last year. She raced on by it just like she did the barrels and the poles at the Saddle Club and her aim to overcome it was just like her good aim on the basketball court. Put her spirit and her aim with her determination, attitude, and faith and you have a cancer free Sandra Carey. Everything seemed to be going fine for Sandra. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My life was a lot like everyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. I was enjoying life, my children, my grandchildren, and my dogs and cats. Then I began having no energy and I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel good.â&#x20AC;? Sandra states. Sandra want to see Edna Leitherland, then a Dr. Smiley then a Dr. Wright. Cancer was confirmed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a moment, finding out I had cancer was a shock. Then I thought God had been good to me and helped me get through a lot so I totally put myself in Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands,â&#x20AC;? Sandra stated. A month later chemo

treatments started. She had surgery August 3, 2009 in Memphis. More chemo treatments followed. Her last treatment was in December. She was checked in February and no cancer was found. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The doctor told me there was a 70 percent chance that my cancer would return. If it comes back, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll deal with it. I am a survivor. I never gave up talking to God everyday, never stopped laughing, and I kept positive though the rough days. God blessed me. I was not as sick as a lot of other people. I learned prayer, family, and friends are very important in helping me survive cancer. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to think about its return. I sat at home for a year; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready to go. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to enjoy; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to shop. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to waste to feel sorry for myself,â&#x20AC;? Sandra comments. Like all who have had this silent killer invade their body, Sandra has learned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have learned that God is always with you; prayers will get you through it. I would like to thank my family, my friends, my pastor, and my Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fellowship Group at the Dyer Cumberland Presbyterian Church for their prayers, love, food, and gifts. They were always there for me. I have also learned that you have to have a doctor who cares about you. If it hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been for Edna caring a lot about me and encouraging me to not give up, I probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here.â&#x20AC;?

Now that Sandra has had cancer, she realizes the importance of community education of cancer and its prevention. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cancer is a sneaky disease. The community should be aware of the signs and educated of what to look for,â&#x20AC;? Sandra comments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Find a doctor who cares and be aware of your body. I was gaining weight and thought I had just gotten lazy. The hardest part for me was asking for help. I have always done things for myself. I would like to thank my brother Mike Estes for feeding me and my animals and for doing my shopping. In addition, I would like to thank my sister Cindy Davis for staying with me and holding my head when I needed it and my son and daughter-in-law for taking me to the doctor. My nephew Tyler was really good to me, too.â&#x20AC;? Summing up her feelings and her successful cancer story, Sandra comments, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get depressed and down. Think positive, and laugh your way through it all. Cancer is just another hurtle in life.â&#x20AC;? Sandra describes herself as retired, retired, retired. She is retired after 30 years with the Gibson County School District, retired after several years as a beautician, and retired from horseback competitions and basketball hoops. She has three children: Lisa Jackson, Billy Carey, and Lyndsie Carey and six grandchildren. Her husband was the late Bill Carey.
