The fire was not completely extinguished until 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon. Selmer Fire Chief Anthony Carr
stated that the cause is unknown at this time and an investigation is continuing by the State Fire Marshall’s Office.
A fire early Tuesday morning resulted in an estimated $1 million in damages to
Carolina Southern Trucking
Company owned by Sammy
and Sherry Kiser.
The company is located on
Falcon Road in Selmer and
employs more than 140 people. The shop building was
totally destroyed along with
three semi-trucks and a forklift that were in the shop.
The Selmer Fire Department
received the call at around
5:30 a.m. and worked until
almost 9 a.m. to bring it under
control. Volunteer fire departments from Ramer, Eastview,
Sulphur Springs, and Bethel
Springs were called in with
their tankers to back up
Selmer.
“Selmer Fire Chief Anthony
Carr stated that the State Fire
Marshall’s Office would be
called in to investigate the
cause of the fire.
A ceremony at The
Marty in Adamsville last
Thursday unveiled the new
Walking Tall Trilogy, the
three movies about the life
of former McNairy County
Sheriff Buford Pusser.
The
three
movies,
Walking Tall, Walking
Tall II, and Walking Tall
The Final Chapter, have
just been re-released on
DVD and Blu-Ray by
Shout! Factory.
“The quality is so much
better than the original
films that were made back
in the 1970’s,” said Dwana
Pusser-Garrison daughter
of the late Sheriff Pusser.
“I want to thank everyone for coming and for all
those who have supported
my father and his memory
over the past several years.
With the new re-release of
the movies in higher quality I feel it will bring back a
lot of interest in my father
and what he stood for.”

Larron King was a hero Walking for Jesus

when Larron was named Citizen of the Year.
The dictionary says a hero
is a person who is admired
for courage, outstanding
achievements, or noble qualities. Larron King was that
kind of person. Larron King,
age 49, of Selmer went home
to the Lord to be reunited
with his daughter Lauren
early Monday morning after
spending almost a month in
intensive care in a Memphis
hospital.
He will be remembered as a
hometown hero for his devotion, dedication, and caring
spirit for others. King was
injured in a one-vehicle wreck
on Sulphur Springs Road on
April 16th as he drove home
from his job in Middleton. He
was airlifted to THE MED in
Memphis with severe damage
to his spinal cord.
The day after his accident
Chris Whitten and friends
of Larron began a movement
to try and help Larron and
the family. They organized
a “Prayer in the Park” where
friends came to join together
and prayed for a miracle for
his body to be healed.
“Praying for a Miracle”
t-shirts were designed and
sold to help raise money for
the family and businesses and
individuals purchased blue
bows in support of Larron.
What made people want to
help this man and his family?
They were just following an
example he set earlier when

County truck overturns
A
McNairy
County
Highway Department gravel truck overturned early
Tuesday morning that resulted
in the driver, Robbie C. Bias,
Jr. of Adamsville, being taken
to the hospital.
A road crew was working
on Prather Road near Michie
when the accident occurred.
The crew was digging out portions of the road that had
sunken in and filling them
with rip-rap and then applying
gravel over the rip-rap prior to
paving.
Bias’ truck was loaded with
gravel and when he got on the
edge of the road the load shifted causing the truck to overturn. Bias was treated at the
scene and then transported
to McNairy Regional Hospital
with possible shoulder and
neck injuries.
“He is one of our best
drivers and that was why
he was driving one of our
newest Mack dump trucks,”
said Highway Superintendent
Harvey Neal Smith. “We’ve

The Silver Threads, Rich Gilbert and Eileen Rose, entertain the crowd this past
Saturday night.
Nashville musicians Eileen
Rose and Rich Gilbert know
as The Silver Threads, the
subjects of Brian Tull’s new
mural being painted at the
Rockabilly Park, were in
town last Saturday night for
a performance and to give
locals a chance to see the
faces on the mural in person.
The duo set up under the
Farmers’ Market pavilion and
entertained the crowd, which
was not as big as expected
mostly in part because of the
rainy weather. Tull says he is
having fun working on the
mural and plans to have it
finished in time for a dedication service at this year’s
Rockabilly Festival scheduled
for June 9th. Anyone who
didn’t get a chance to come
to last Saturday night’s event
but would like to make a
donation to help fund the
new mural can send it to Arts
in McNairy at P.O. Box 66
in Selmer. You can check out

Friends of longtime THP
Officer Micah Whitten hosted a benefit on his behalf on
Saturday at the Stantonville
Community Center and over
$13,000 was raised. Whitten,
who served as Tennessee
State Trooper for 23 years
was diagnosed with Wilson
Disease, which causes too
much copper to accumulate in
the body. He received a liver
transplant in 2011 and was
showing improvement when
he suffered a stroke this past
April 8th. Last Saturday’s
event headed up by David and
Dana Johnson and numerous
friends of Whitten’s was a
success. Entertainment, was
provided by local bands and
the Smokehouse Rednecks
cooked up some delicious
barbeque, chickens and bologna. A cakewalk, cow pie
bingo, and a motorcycle ride
also were held to help raise
money. “On behalf of Micah
and everyone who helped
with the benefit we would
like to say a big thank you
for making it such a success,”
said Dana Johnson. “Thanks
to all those who attended and
all those who volunteered,
donated items, or helped in
any way.”

School lunches going up a quarter
The McNairy County
School Board met last
Thursday night with the meeting being held in the MCHS
Little Theater. Chairman
Frank Lacey opened the meeting with prayer.
The minutes of the April
meeting were approved along
with the certified and classified personnel reports. It was
noted that all current principals will be the same for
the next school year except
Carloyn Giesler of Selmer
Elementary, who is retiring
after 43 years in education.
Supervisors for the 2012-13
year will remain the same.
The Board approved custodial
bids for the 2012-2013 year
with Better Source Supply
and American Twine getting
the contracts.
The
waste
disposal
bid was awarded to Waste
Connections. Bids for LP
gas went to Val Propane and
Paul Fisher Oil was awarded the diesel fuel bid with
a low bid of 3.298 per gallon. Bids for school nutrition
were approved unanimously.
Due to increases in food costs
and delivery costs the Board
approved a 25-cent increase
in the price of school lunches.
The cost will go from $1.25 to
$1.50 for elementary school
students and from $1.50 to
$1.75 for high school students.
This will be the first
increase for school lunches
in several years. The Board
discussed a proposal by E&W
Electrical Solutions in regards
to installing new lights in the
county’s schools, which the
company said would result
in substantial savings in a
year’s time. The cost would be
almost $24,000, but the company stated the savings would
equal the cost in the first
year. After some discussion, a
motion by Larry Smith to bid
the proposal out was made
and approved unanimously.
The Planning Committee
met recently and discussed
ways to get tax revenue for the
building of two new schools.
Chairman Lacey stated that
he wanted the board members
to submit five names each to
Mr. Miskelly to work with the
county commission on what
might be done to get funding. In his director of schools
report Mr. Miskelly thanked
the teachers and students for
a good year.
The mother of a student at
MCHS addressed the Board
and asked them to reconsider
the punishment handed down
to her daughter who would
not be allowed to walk the
line at graduation. She has
been in alternative school and
has the required credits to
graduate and will get a diploma, but can’t walk the line.
A motion by Larry Smith
to allow her to walk the line
was defeated by a 5-2 vote
with Smith and Kevin Isbell
voting yes and Frank Lacey,
Lynn Baker, Jean Jones,
Tony Chapman, and Jarrell
Stanfield voting no. “I feel
your pain and I understand
what you must be going
through,” said Chairman
Lacey. “We all love our kids
and we want them to be
death, Larron wanted to do
something to help the families at the Ronald McDonald
House, who were experiencing what he and Anita had
just gone through.
He decided to go and grill
some chickens and fix them
a meal. He only planned
this as a one-time thing.
But after seeing the joy it
brought to the families and
to him he continued doing
it once a month and had
continued doing it up until
his accident last month. He
also did special things for
them at Christmas, Easter,
Thanksgiving and other holidays.
In February of 2000,
Larron and Anita formed
Lauren King Ministeries in
honor and memory of their
daughter. In 2009 he was
named as McNairy County’s
Citizen of the Year for his
dedication and caring for others. One man’s caring atti-
tude has helped hundreds of
people over the past several
years. He has made a difference in the lives of many.
He was a real hero and will
be missed by everyone who
knew him.
Funeral services for Larron
were scheduled for Thursday,
May 17th at 1 p.m. at the
Selmer First Baptist Church.
Memorials may be directed to
the Lauren King Ministeries
at 152 Shelton Loop in
Selmer or the Larron King
Trust Fund at Regions Bank.

trying time. Larron and his
wife Anita’s daughter Lauren
was born on Mother’s Day fifteen years ago. She was diagnosed with Leukemia and
had to enter St. Jude Hospital
right after being born.
Larron and Anita stayed
in Memphis at the Ronald
McDonald House while
Lauren was undergoing treatments. She lived a year and
eight days. Following her

trusted to make decisions and
we need to do what they have
suggested. If we start overturning the decisions of the
people we’ve trusted to make
those decisions we’re going to
open the flood gates.”
A motion by Smith to have
a special called meeting to
discuss the action was also
voted down 5-2. AHS Band
Director Frankie Congiardo
and Assistant MCHS Band
Director Daniel Vargason
addressed the Board to inform
them about the McNairy
Percussion Group they had
formed with members of the
MCHS and AHS percussion
groups.
The group has 32 members
and traveled to five competitions recently. They finished
third out of 17 groups in their
final competition after finishing 9th out of 10 groups in
their first competition. “We
had a great experience and
it was nice for both schools
to work together,” said
Congiardo.
Board members were then
invited to the band room to
view a video of the group’s performance. After a brief statement from Willard Summers,
a member of the audience, the
meeting was adjourned.

Graduation Word Search Angry or Grateful
See if you can find the words associated
with graduation. Congratulations to all
the 2012 graduates.
SUNRISE
By David Coy
It’s like learning to live
with an amputation, some
have said. You are never
the same as you were before.
This is certainly true, when
we reflect upon struggling to
make sense of our loss. We
may feel as if we are in the
dark groping to find our way
to the light. I can remember
doing just that when I was
a child for fun, but as an
adult and you are stumbling
in your journey of grief, it is
anything but fun. For a time
we cannot make sense of anything. We also may feel that
our emotions are all over the
place, running the gamut of
the alphabet all at once.
For some the difficult
choice may be whether to be
angry for our loss or to be
grateful for the time we had.
We probably have heard it
said by our guardian many
times, ‘nothing lasts forever.’ Yet though we know
this in the back of our mind,
we nonetheless form strong
attachments to people and
things.
We develop deep
sentimental value on them
and then when there is that
separation, especially unannounced and unexpected, it
often will shake us to our
very core. We might begin to
doubt our values, beliefs, and
our trust in what we formerly
felt secure.
If we choose anger over
gratitude then we risk postponing or even preventing
healing from taking place.
No, I am not saying it is
an easy, clean choice either.
Often our mind is in a fog and
we are not thinking clearly,
and our focus and concentration is not working as it has
formerly. Thus we may be
in a battle with anger on the
one side and gratitude on the
other, and anger seems to be
the stronger of the two. Anger
can be a very powerful and
consuming emotion. When
I was a youth I was taught
the importance of gratitude
and when I am given something, to say thank you, show
appreciation for what I have
been given. Because nothing lasts forever sometimes I
forget to say thank you. This
is Sunrise.

County Commission Snapshots of McNairy County History
meets
The McNairy County
Commission held their May
meeting on Monday night
with 18 of the 21 commissioners present. Minutes of the
April meeting were approved.
The Commission approved a
request by Mayor Ashe to
apply for a Litter Grant in the
amount of $47,900. Names
submitted for approval to
the 911 Board were Darrell
Goodrum, Amy Oakley,
and Guy Buck. They will be
voted on at the June meeting. Names submitted for a
Safety Committee were; Judy
Bivens, Guy Buck, Harvey
Smith, Darrell Goodrum, and
David McCullar. Mayor Ashe
advised that if the county has
a Safety Committee then they
could get a discount on their
Workman’s Comp insurance.
Commissioner Stan Wheeler
gave a report from the Building
Committee. He asked the
Commission to approve an
agreement between the county, the Town of Selmer, and
911 on who pays for what in
the newly acquired buildings
that will house 911 and some
of the fire equipment. He also
asked that the Commission
approve the agreement on
use of the Latta Building.
Both requests were approved
unanimously. Commissioner
Jim Rickman advised that the
Budget Committee was meeting every Monday night and
was making progress toward
a new budget. Commissioner
David McCullar gave a report
from the Road Committee.
He made a motion that two
new roads, Osage Road and
Osage Lane, be added to the
road list since they met all
the requirements. His motion
was approved unanimously.
He also made a motion that
surplus property from the
Highway Department be auctioned off in July. An amendment that the auction company for the sale be one from
the county was added and the
motion passed unanimously.
It was reported that the new
bridge on Friendship Road had
been completed and approved
by the state and that bids
would soon be let on bridges
on Falcon Road and Bethel
Purdy Road. Superintendent
of Roads Harvey Neal Smith
informed the Commission
that McNairy County was one
of only three counties in the
state that will have completed
their bridge list when the final
two bridges are finished and
he was proud of that accomplishment. The Commission
discussed the ongoing situation with American Timber
and Land in regards to reimbursement for damages to
Connie Smith Road when
the company was cutting
timber in the area. County
Attorney Craig Kennedy was
asked to get more information
for a possible lawsuit against
the company and present
it at the next meeting. The
Commission discussed the
possible purchase of the Coon
Creek property. “We need to
get the property appraised in
order to see if we might be
able to get a grant for the
purchase,” said Mayor Ashe.
“It would be a great project if we could get in on a
grant.” The Pink Palace in
Memphis currently owns the
land but has discussed selling it. Craig Kennedy gave an
update on seven properties
that had been advertised for
sale due to back taxes owed
against them. Mayor Ashe
advised they had bids on four

Letters were a precious commodity to the boys away
from home for two weeks. The letter writer above is
believed to be Pvt. Wm. Foote.
By Bill Wagoner
County Historian
The Tennessee National
Guard unit was a product of
World War II and established
by military at Selmer. Some
had fought in that war. The
heart and soul of the 4/117th
Company of the famed so”
Division Unit was W/O Ray
Goodrum, a local who had
served in World War II.
Capt. George Huggins had
been an early officer and by
the 1950’s was company commander. His officers variously from 1955-1963 were Lt.
Arvy Ledbetter, Capt. W.O.
Browder, Lt. W.T. Clifton,
Field
Marshal
Norman
Carroll, Lt. Bob Latta, Lt.
George Weatherford, Capt.
George Brooks, Capt. Jett
Ramer, Major Hugh Woods
and others whose names were
forgotten.
For 8 years, 1955-63 the
4/117th was shipped by rail or
truck convey to Ft. Stewart,
an Army base near Hinesville,
Georgia. Training included a
week on bivouac and a week
in camp. Men worked in basic
instruction/training on rifle
range, motor pool and related
military order. A full kitchen
set-up was used in camp and
transported to the bivouac
area miles out in the Georgia
pine country. Rattlesnakes
were huge, a dime-a-dozen
in number and to be found
in abundance. The summer
encampment of 1963 was
spent at Ft. Campbell, Ky.
The T.N.G. permitted military training and allowed
personnel to remain at home
and on job. The unit was
slated for duty during the
Cuban Crisis under President
John Kennedy. Vice President
Lyndon Johnson asked his
Texas National Guard to be
sent instead. The photos were
made in 1959.
These comments are recollections of 50 years ago; some
names may have been omitted
but not intentionally. These
photos are from the collection of Billy Martin, 41117th
second cook.

Romans 8:38-39, “ For I
know that nothing can keep us
from the love of God. Death
cannot! Life cannot! Angels cannot! Leaders cannot! Any other
power cannot! Hard things now
or in the future cannot! The
world above or the world below
cannot! Any other living thing
cannot keep us away from the
love of God which is ours through
Christ Jesus our Lord.”
WOW!! Nothing going
snatch you away from God’s
hand, if you are a child of
His!
Purdy Trade Days is just
nearly here. June 1-2 is the
time. You will find at least
one thing you’ll be interested in like; arts, crafts,
food venders, flea market,
yard sales and music. Also,
rumor has it there may be a
car/truck show, a motorcycle
run and maybe a trail ride
to come into town sometime
during the day on Saturday.
Hey, they can pull this all
off; remember “Wings”
came in for a landing at Joe
David’s grand opening of the
Purdy Store. Keep watching
McNairy County News as
the date nears.
A mighty man and worker
of God went to be with the
Lord on Monday morning.
Our prayers and thoughts are
with the Larron King family
today. His funeral will ne
Thursday, May 17th at 1:00
p.m. at First Baptist Church
in Selmer, TN.
Mr. Smarty tells everyone
he meets on the streets, that
those vegetables are going to
kill Brenda and he can prove
it. How? Because I had open
heart surgery and vegetables
is all I eat. Hey, it’s been
over 15 years since I had
heart surgery! Just sitting
here now waiting on John
Ross Gage’s squash to get big
enough to eat. Already had
green onions and radishes
from Bro. Randy. Yummy!
The FFBC Youth have a
project going that is going
to benefit the veggie folks
out here. They have planted
a Community Garden under
the leadership of Morris &
Rena Wilson and expert
guidance from John Ross.
Now, isn’t that just about the
bestest idea ever? Morris and
Rena are wonderful youth
teachers and leaders. We
really appreciate all they do
for the kids and with the
kids.
By this time next week,
school will be out. Oh no!!
What’re we going to do with
all the “I’m bored”? Idea
here! We can send then up to
Randy & Tonya’s and Neal
& Brenda’s. Here’s betting
they’d be calling for a bus
ticket home in a matter of
a few days, after they work
them over a day or two.
Maybe they should have
planted a few acres of cotton.
Remember those days? Don’t
much believe they would say
a word about being “bored”!
Smarty says what is wrong
with kids these days is computers and cotton patches.
Too many computers and not
enough cotton patches.
Smarty and son, Smarter
and grandson, Smartest are
breaking a young pair of
mules. They are young and
Bett’s going be some kind
of unhappy when she finds
this out! She remains on her
extended stay over at Stanley
& Helen’s. Really, I personally feel she and Mable have
become good friends and it’s
hard to leave her.
Vera Reed, where have you
& David been? You’ll are
missing out in this muleskinning event? Seems like
you need to be overseeing
these guys, to make sure the
new girls are treated good.
Spot does not miss a trip.
He loves mules MUCH better than Randy Smith! Oh,
yes! The new girls’ names
are Bessie & Ada. Andy says
that Ada is the sweet one.
Mother’s Day was another
great Sunday at Forty Forks!
Mr. Lloyd began the celebration with a song, “The
Comfort of Her Wings”.
Then Ms. Becky & the children gave every Mother/
Lady a gift. Ms. Wanda
Carroll was recognized as
oldest Mother, April Gantt
was the youngest Mom and
Helen Chambers was honored for the most children
present. Jeremy Whitten
ended the celebration with
a piano solo, “Word of God
Speak”. Jeremy is Morris and
Rena Wilson’s son-in law. He
is married to Holly Wilson
Whitten and they have
two beautiful girls, Blair &
Brinley.
Bro. Randy’s sermon was
another biblical truth centered on Mother’s, beginning with Eve, from the
book of Genesis. He spoke
of how God created Eve from
Adam’s side to be his helpmate and chose her to be the
first mother. Randy pointed
out with great emphasis that,
according to God’s words
and His law that marriage
and procreation is between,
one man and one woman!
There is no other way!
FFBC is so blessed to
have a man of God like Bro.
Randy Smith. He preaches
only from The Word of God,
which is the Holy Bible. Like
it or not it will always be the
truth! Randy will be the first
one to tell you he preaches
to himself, as well as the
church body and sometimes
it’s not easy stepping on your
own toes. Thank you Randy
& Becky!
Bro. Randy was present
when Dr. Dolan came out
of the operating room and
said Smarts was “weird”.
Smarty had a hay-day when
the cardiologist said that
Randy was “abnormal”! He
said Forty Forks was in bad
shape if the piano player was
“weird” and the preacher was
“abnormal.” But praise God
Bro. Randy’s test was wonderful good news! However,
Dr. Dolan’s surgery fixed the
piano player’s hand, just not
his head! Smarty said that
there might not be anything
that can be done for Bro.
Randy’s abnormal status,
which part of it is that he
don’t like mules and that is
very abnormal.
Rudy & Judy Moore of
Finger, were spotted eating
Mother’s Day, at the popular restaurant, Whisker’s
Catfish, in Henderson.
Whisker’s
occasionally
advertises with The McNairy
County News. Watch for

Take the time this week
to call on the One that
gives us hope and peace.
We have the promises of the
God Almighty! He will never
leave us alone! NEVER!
Movie Review
Exciting Films
Coming Soon
for Movie
Enthusiasts
A film I am looking forward
to which is just around the
corner is based on the book
“Savages” by Don Winslow.
Winslow is a great writer using
exceptional dialogue to hook
the reader, and the film is
directed by Oliver Stone.
The story involves three
friends in California in the illegal drug business. The three
friends are Taylor Kitsch,
Aaron Johnson, and Blake
Lively. Taylor Kitsch plays
an ex-seal with deadly skills.
Aaron Johnson plays a college graduate who majored in
Business and Botany. He is also
a philanthropist. Blake Lively
plays their love interest. Rumor
has it Stone will return to
rough and tough action he used
in some of his earlier films.
“The Amazing Spider Man”
will be coming this summer.
Spidey will probably have a
huge box office audience.
“The Dark Knight Rises”
This may be Batman’s last
adventure. However, predictions seem to think it is going
to be a large box office hit.
Hollywood will probably find a
way to bring the Bat back.
“Argo” is based on a true
story on the Iran revolution in
the late 70’s. The CIA teams
up with Hollywood in order
to travel to Iran and rescue
six hostages while pretending
to be filming a movie. Ben
Affleck stars and directs this
film. If “The Town” was a film
the reader enjoyed, this may
be another hit for movie goers.
Affleck directed and starred
in “The Town” also. This will
open after the summer hits.
Another one I am waiting
for is “Django Unchained.”
It is directed by Tarantino. I
must see anything Tarantino
does. His dialogue is sharp,
tough, strong, and real. The
conversations taking place
gives the audience edge of the
seat tension. The movie stars
Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel
L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz,
Kerry Washington, and Jamie
Fox. It is set in the pre Civil
War era. The film uses the
Spaghetti Western theme. It
means lots of shoot’em ups,
plenty of fights, and strong dialogue. Basically the Spaghetti
Westerns began in the 60’s
with Sergio Leone. The name
came from the fact most were
made by Italians. Remember
“The Man with No Name,” “A
Fistfull of Dollars,” and “The
Good The Bad and The Ugly”
umm sounds familiar.
Django Unchained” will
be controversial because of its
theme. We will probably see
some very graphic and horrible
scenes which unfortunately
some of the events were based
on truth, if what I read about
it is factual. This film opens on
Christmas Day.
“The Bourne Legacy” We
have a new Jason Bourne. Do
not worry if you viewed “The
Town,” the Bourne character
should be up to par. Jeremy
Renner played one tough guy
in “The Town.” Jeremy Renner
plays Jason Bourne. He convinced the audience he was
the character in “The Town.” I
have high hopes he will do the
same in this Bourne film.
Of course, I have not mentioned all of the films coming
our way in the near future.
We will have lots of adventure,
The Next give away will be on June 28th at the new location-445 Farber St., Adamsville.

loud noises, fights, shootings,
cartoons, comedies, drama,
documentaries, science fiction,
animation, and all the genres
we can think about.
It appears to me movie
goers will have a variety of
entertainment to choose from
in the next several months if
they so desire. See you at the
movies - or not. You decide. I
really think it is going to be
a great year for all kinds of
entertainment and escapism.
Leave behind stress, backstabbing, smart remarks, negativism, or just take a break from
kindness, helpfulness, positive remarks, fun, and go to
the movies for more pleasurable activities, and entertainment just like you get at work.
Whatever the case see ya at the
movies.

Recipes
Chicken Fried
Steak
•3/4 cup vegetable oil
•1 1/2 pounds beef round,
trimmed and cut into 4
(6-ounce) pieces (butcher can
do)
•1 1/2 cups all-purpose
flour, divided
•Kosher salt and freshly
ground black pepper
•3 eggs, beaten with 2
tablespoons water
•2 cups milk
Add the oil to a large heavy
bottomed skillet, over medium heat.
Meanwhile, prepare the
beef by pounding each piece
to tenderize. Put 1 1/4 cups
of the flour in a shallow dish
and season well with salt and
pepper, to taste. Add the egg
mixture to a shallow dish and
season with salt and pepper,
to taste. Dredge the steaks
in seasoned flour, shaking off
any excess, then dip them in
the egg mixture and back into
the flour.
Once oil is hot, add the
steaks and fry until golden,
about 3 to 4 minutes per
side. Be sure to not overcrowd
the pan and do in batches, if
necessary. Remove the fried
steaks to a paper towel lined
dish and set aside. Sprinkle
the remaining 1/4 cup of flour
into the cooking oil and whisk
until fully incorporated. Cook
over medium-high heat until
just slightly darker in color,
about 3 minutes. While
whisking, pour the milk in a
slow steady stream. Bring to a
boil, then reduce the heat and
simmer until thick, another 5
to 6 minutes. Taste the gravy
for seasoning and adjust as
necessary. Arrange the steaks
on serving plates with the
gravy spooned over the top.
Enjoy immediately.
Beef Stroganoff

trimmed
•Kosher salt and fresh
cracked black pepper
•3 tablespoons garlic
infused olive oil
•1 onion, chopped
•2 cups good quality beef
stock
•1 1/2 cups sour cream
Cut the beef against the
grain into narrow 2-inch long
strips about 1/2-inch thick.
Pat dry and season with salt
and pepper, to taste. In a
large saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the infused olive
oil over medium-high heat.
Add the prepared beef and
brown on all sides, about 3 to
5 minutes. Remove the meat
from the pan and set aside.
Add another tablespoon oil
to saute pan, if needed, and
add the onions. Cook until
light golden, stirring and adding 1/4 cup of beef stock to
deglaze the pan. Stir in the
remaining beef stock and the
beef with any resting juices
back to the skillet and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in
the sour cream and just heat

School students are participating in the Pop Tab program to support the Ronald
McDonald House. The little,
seemingly insignificant tab
you pull to open your alumi-
num cans helps the Ronald
McDonald House provide a
safe and comfortable place
families can call “home”
while their children recover
in nearby hospitals.
The Pop Tab program is
an environmentally smart,
community friendly program
which focuses on separating
the pull tab from the aluminum beverage cans. The tab

is a higher grade of aluminum than the can, resulting
in higher dollar return per
pound of cans.
The pop tabs are recycled
and the proceeds go directly
to families in need who are
staying at the house. Anyone
and everyone can collect pop
tabs! It’s easy, fun, and a great
project for schools and community groups.

Congiardo advances to state
AHS’ Gean &
Wilson are region
runner-ups
Coach Michael Harvill and
three of his Lady Cardinal tennis players traveled to Memphis
on Monday for Region
8A-AA tennis competition.
Adamsville’s Darby Congiardo
competed in the singles competition while Allie Gean and
Maddie Wilson took part in
doubles.
In her opening match,
Congiardo defeated Angeleane
Blue of Memphis Middle
College; 6-3, 6-1. The win set
up a rematch with Alice Nelson
of Sacred Heart who had beaten her for the district title the
week before. Congiardo had her
game on Monday as she defeated Nelson 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 to win
the region title and advance

Darby Congiardo will be
the first Lady Cardinal in
the history of the school
to advance to the state
tournament.
Murfreesboro next week.
In doubles action, Gean
and Wilson got a win in their
opening match over Pleas and
Daniels of Middle College; 6-0,
6-0, setting a rematch of the
district championship match
with Julea Tignor and Kennedy
Brookefield of TCA. Tignor
and Brookefield prevailed again
as they won the match; 6-1, 6-3
to claim the region title and
advance to the state tournament.
“I can’t say enough about the
girls and what they were able
to accomplish this year,” said
Coach Michael Harvill. “I am
very proud of them. Maddie
and Allie have a bright future
ahead of them in tennis, and
they are just freshmen. Now
we are going to try to get Darby
ready for state. She is the first
girl in Adamsville tennis history to make it to state, so this
is very special. She’s had a great
year and now we want to take it
to a state level.”
Darby will open the state
tournament against the Region
2 champion next Thursday at
noon. Matches will be played
at Old Fort Community Park
tennis courts in Murfreesboro.
Good Luck, Darby!

Bobcats win district & region
MCHS one win
from state berth
It took the McNairy
Central Bobcats a long time
to finally win another district
championship, but they got it
done last Thursday night at
South Side as they defeated
Lexington 3-1.
The last district title for
the Bobcats came way back
in 1987. The Bobcats topped
that one on Wednesday
when they captured their
first region championship in
school history as they rallied
to beat Covington 8-6 after
trailing 5-1 going into the
fifth.
With the win, they
improved to 28-10-1 on the
season, another school first
for most wins in a season. The
previous record was 26.
The Bobcats will host
Memphis Fairley on Friday
at 1 p.m. and a win will
put them in the state tournament, which would set anoth-
er record because the Bobcats
have never made it to state.
“I’m proud of the guys
and the way they are playing
right now,” said Coach Brian
Franks. “I think we’ve got the
whole community excited and
pulling for us.”
The win over Covington
on Wednesday was huge as
it gave the Bobcats a home
game in sub-state action on
Friday.
The score was tied 1-1
after two innings of play.
Covington went on to take a
5-1 lead in the third. In the
fifth the Bobcats came alive
and plated 5 runs to go up

AHS finished

The Adamsville Cardinals
watched their season come to
an end last Thursday night
with a 9-5 loss to Trinity
Christian Academy in the
District 15-A Tournament
at TCA. The Cardinals fell
behind 5-0 in the first two
innings and could not recover.
“This was a disappointing
conclusion to our season as
we felt we had a great shot to
get back to region and state,”
said Coach Steven Lambert.
“Our defense, which had
been pretty good all year
let us down in this game.
We had 4 errors, 3 of them
with two outs and we gave
up 6 unearned runs. Hats off
to Drew Griswell who came
in to pitch in the third and
held TCA in check to give us

McNairy Central’s Blake
Chandler will take his baseball talents to the college
level in the fall after signing
a scholarship with Bethel
College in McKenzie on
Wednesday.
Chandler was recruited as
a pitcher for the Wildcats.
He is currently 6-3 on the
season with 1 save and has
an ERA of 1.71. At the plate,
he is hitting .362 with 33
RBIs and 18 doubles.
“Blake is a great player, a
great person, and he will be
a great addition to Bethel’s
team,” said Coach Brian
Franks. “He’s made some
big plays for us this season
and has been a great senior
leader.”
Bethel head coach Rusty
Thompson, a former standout at Hardin County, said
he was excited to sign a player with Chandler’s ability.
“Blake can step in and
help us right away,” said
Coach Thompson. “We’re
really excited that he chose
to become a Wildcat.”
Bethel College, which
is located in McKenzie is
a member of the NAIA.
Congratulations Blake!
a chance to rally. I’m proud
that we fought back, but we
just couldn’t catch up. TCA
is a good young team that
made several big defensive
plays to stop us.”
The Cardinals suffered
their first loss in the tournament the previous night
when the dropped a 5-0 decision to Riverside, last year’s
Class A State Champions.
The game was scoreless until
the fifth when Riverside put
5 runs across the plate.
“We wasted a great pitching performance by Kasey
Hurley,”
stated
Coach
Lambert. “Kasey pitched
great and we played great
defense, but just couldn’t do
anything with our bats.”
The Cardinals finish the
season with an overall record
of 18-16-1.

AHS’ Lambert stepping down
Adamsville High School
baseball
coach
Steven
Lambert has decided to step
down as the Cardinals head
baseball coach, but will continue to teach at the school.
Lambert has been head
coach since 2000 and has
compiled an overall record
of 230-233-1 in his twelve
seasons. His teams have won
a region championship (2006)
and advanced to the state
tournament in 2010.
The Cardinals have made
three sub-state appearances
during his tenure.
Coach Lambert says he
decided to step down to
spend more time with his
family and also due to some
health concerns for his father,
who recently had a stroke,
and his mother-in-law, who is
battling cancer.
“I want to thank the AHS
administration for their support over the years and to
all the businesses who have
supported us financially,”
said Coach Lambert. “And a
special thanks to all the players and parents I’ve had the
opportunity to be associated
with over the years.”

Common Swing
Faults - 12
Photo by Tom Evans
Adamsville’s
Steven
Lambert is stepping down
after 12 years as head
baseball coach.
Brother and sister both bag bucks
This week we will address
the final swing fault in our
series. Commonly known
as “Chicken Winging”, the
lead arm breakdown during the downswing causes
a number of undesirable
results when present in a
golfers swing.
The arm closest to the
target at address is known
as the lead arm. This arm
creates the swing plane and
the width of the swing.
Chicken Winging is a loss
of extension or breakdown
of that arm through the
impact zone. This fault
causes a dramatic loss of
power and speed during
the swing as well as creating severe pain in the
golfers elbow joint. The
fault is present if there is
any evidence of the elbow
leading the wrist at impact.
Additionally, we can diagnose the fault by watching
the arm extension through
impact looking for a nice
“V” shape pointing at the
target right after impact.
Common
physical
causes of this fault lie in
the strength of the lead
arm and the flexibility of
the lead shoulder. Any
loss of flexibility in this
joint will force the golfer
to compensate by allow-

CGFI
ing the lead arm joint to
break down. We also know
that improper sequencing
during the downswing will
lead to Chicken Winging.
If the golfer is making an
over the top motion with
the golf club, the golfer is
often forced to breakdown
the lead arm to compensate
for the forces of the club
swinging across the target
line. Improve this motion
and the Chicken Wing will
go away too.
Chicken Winging is
a fault that will rob you
of precious speed and
distance. If you feel like
you are fighting a left arm
breaking down at impact,
please email me at [email protected]
gmail.com or give me a call
at 731-925-0439 and I will
help you play better golf!
