Earl Judkins Golf Classic to Benefit Karen Jacobs

Life was going along as usual for Karen Blair Jacobs last year. Happily married to Smithville City Councilman and longtime radio broadcaster Shawn Jacobs, she had recently experienced the mixture of joy and sadness as their daughter, Caitlin, graduated from DeKalb County High School. A veteran teacher at Northside Elementary School, Jacobs also enjoyed watching her son, Justin Nokes, as he continued excelling in the education profession as a teacher and soccer coach. But life began to take a turn for the worse, when she went to the doctor to find out why she had not been feeling well for the last 3 to 6 months.

“In the fall, I was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Cancer,” Jacobs says. “Unlike a lot of the other types of cancer it doesn’t just hit in one area. It appears that mine began in the lung and metastasized to spots on the liver.”

For now, this particular type of cancer is incurable but treatable.

“I was blessed to be healthy enough to participate in a clinical trial with Tennessee Oncology in Nashville, which could slow growth and perhaps maybe someday help find a cure.”

Jacobs goes for treatment two days a week for three weeks with the next week off. The cycle then repeats. After a leave of absence part of last school year, Jacobs will return to the classroom to teach the other three days that she isn’t undergoing treatment.

“So far, I am stable, and I will continue the treatments until they tell me differently,” she said.

To help offset medical costs, the Cantrell Cancer Foundation will donate all proceeds from the 6th Annual Earl Judkins Golf Classic on Saturday, August 26 to Jacobs and her family.

The golf tournament began in 2012.

“The year prior was when we found out about Amy’s cancer, and I wanted to do something for her,” explains Tyler Cantrell. “This was one of the ways I felt I could give back to her, and I knew we could continue it years after for other families as well.”

“I think what the Cantrell Cancer Benefit Foundation is doing is a very excellent way to help others and honor Tyler’s sister, Amy Cantrell Miller.

Originally, Relay for Life held a golf tournament in honor of Cantrell’s late great uncle Earl Judkins. When they hosted the tournament, the foundation picked it up as a way to honor him and help others.

“Since having the golf tournament, we have had five different recipients all of which vary in age and condition, including two under the age of 5,” Cantrell said. “We have raised close to $20,000 in proceeds that have gone back to the families, thanks to the help of Modern Woodman, which is a company who has been able to match up to $2,500 for a few of those tournaments.”

Besides the financial assistance, Karen’s friends, family, and colleagues have rallied around her with prayers and support.

“My heart breaks for her having to go through this,” says Annette Davis, a friend of 46 years. “She is a rock and such a strong woman, and she is there for anyone in need.

“She is a kind, compassionate person,” says Kim Young with whom Karen has shared a friendship since Kindergarten. “She is very thoughtful. She loves her family and friends. You can always depend on her. She is very strong in her faith and in her relationship with God. In this battle, she is giving it all she has. If it be God’s will, she will win.”

“She is a person that has made my life better by just being a part of it,” says Angie Young Thomas, longtime friend, college roommate, and fellow softball player. “I truly love her with all my heart and I feel a deep pain in my chest at the thought of what she is going through. I so wish I could be there to help support her. No matter how many miles there are between us or how much time goes by without us talking, I know that I can always count on her and that I will always think of her as one of my best friends.

Deadline to enter the golf tournament is August 18. For more information on the tournament or to become a sponsor contact Tyler Cantrell at centerhillcrossfit.com or 931-239-5948 and Riverwatch Golf Club at 931-761-8124. Entry fee is $75 for individuals and $300 for teams. Donations may be made to Cantrell Cancer Benefit Foundation at 625 Foster Road, Smithville.

“I would like to take this time to thank everyone for all of their thoughts and prayers as I go through this journey,” Karen said. “I have felt each and every one of them, and they help me get through the day. It also makes it a lot easier for my family. Please continue to pray for my family and me as we continue the fight!”

Community Answers Call to Pray for Schools

Community Answers Call to Pray for Schools

Members of the community concerned about our school system answered the call to pray Sunday afternoon during what has become an annual event prior to the start of school.

This year's prayer time called " Back 2 School Call 2 Prayer" was held at DeKalb Middle School. As in past years it featured several local ministers offering prayers for each school as well as the school transportation staff, athletic activities and band program, law enforcement agencies, and the school board.

Donnie Kelly, Pastor of the First Assembly of God, made opening remarks followed by Director of Schools Patrick Cripps, who spoke briefly about plans for the school year. Alberto Lucio, Pastor of the Iglesia Bethel Church, led the opening prayer and Suzanne Slager sang the National Anthem.

In his remarks, Director Cripps said school system plans for the year include bringing 1 to 1 computer devices (Chrome Books) to every high school student in a few weeks and to 6th to 8th grade students after Christmas; improving literacy and ACT scores; and conducting a feasibility study to determine needs for new schools.

“Thank you for coming today to support our community schools. It takes our entire community to educate students. Even if you currently do not have children in our school system, you are still an integral part of our school community,” said Director Cripps.

“I have some praises that I would like to share with you. We have been fortunate to bring 1:1 computer devices for our students in grades 6-12. Our high school students will get those devices in the next few weeks, and our 6th-8th grade students will receive those devices sometime after Christmas,” he said.

“Also, this year we will take the first step toward building new schools. An architectural firm will conduct a feasibility study to determine the needs for schools in our community”.

“I would like to recognize and thank our School Board members, County Commission members, County Mayor, and our taxpayers for supporting our vision of producing productive community members.”

“Our goals to reach that vision are ongoing and we will continue to work toward a literacy goal of 90% of 3rd graders in DeKalb County reading on grade level by 2020”.

“Also, with literacy being a focus for all students, we expect that our average ACT composite will be a 21 by the year 2020 also”.

“Additionally, all high school students will leave our high school with one or all of the following: a 21 on the ACT, industry certification, and/or college credits. Upon graduation, we want to provide our students of DeKalb County with opportunities and options to be college and career ready.”

“Each step from pre-kindergarten to grade 12 needs our community support. I’m enlisting you to assist us with this endeavor,” said Director Cripps.

Local ministers participating were:

*Dan Gulley, minister at the Smithville Church of Christ (who prayed for DeKalb County High School)

*Bill Robertson, interim pastor of the Smithville First Baptist Church (who prayed for DeKalb Middle School)

*Joel Wood, pastor of the Elizabeth Chapel Baptist Church (who prayed for Northside Elementary School)

*Iain Swisher, youth pastor at the Smithville First Assembly of God (who prayed for Smithville Elementary School)

*Jimmy Arms, pastor of the Upper Helton Baptist Church (who prayed for DeKalb West School)

* Dr. John Carpenter, pastor of the Smithville First United Methodist and Bright Hill United Methodist Churches (who prayed for School Transportation Staff)

*Jerry Strait, youth pastor of the Smithville Church of God (who prayed for the athletic department/band)

*Nathan Thomason, pastor of the Outreach Baptist Church (who prayed for the local law enforcement departments

*Isaac Gray, pastor of the Smithville Cumberland Presbyterian Church (who prayed for the School Board)

DCHS Students to Get Chrome Books

All DCHS Students to get a Chrome Book

Ninth through 12th graders at DeKalb County High School will soon see modern technology in the classrooms — and in their hands.

Chrome Books will be issued to each of the students at the high school to begin the new school year. Sixth to 8th graders at DeKalb Middle School and DeKalb West School will get Chrome Books later in the school year.

Through these one to one laptop devices, students will be able to access the Internet, digital course materials and digital textbooks. By providing students their own notebook computer or tablet, the school is making it possible for students to find information instantly to produce rich multimedia content.

“We’re excited. We set as a goal to make available to our students the technology they need in the classroom. We hope this will keep students engaged and give them more opportunities to expand their learning and critical thinking,” Director of Schools Patrick Cripps told WJLE Friday.

While Chrome Books will not totally replace textbooks, they will add a new dimension to the students’ learning experience. “A textbook is just a resource and it shouldn’t be the only guide we use. That’s why we are excited about this new technology because it brings more resources into the classroom. For example, I sat in a third grade class (in another district) where the students, as part of their lesson, got to experience what it is like to take a plane ride to travel to a different country and learn its culture. They got to experience that through this technology. It gives it a different spin than just reading it in black and white in a textbook,” Director Cripps said.

Students will be assigned a Chrome Book through all their years at the high school, but for now they will not be allowed to take them home. Students will pick up their Chrome Books each morning and turn them back in at the end of the school day. “ These are laptops. They are portable so the students will be taking them from class to class. At this time we are going to keep them (devices) at school. We are discussing the possibility of letting the students take them home at night but for now we’re baby stepping this,” said Director Cripps.

The laptops use Google Classroom, a blended learning platform developed by Google for schools that simplifies creating, distributing and grading assignments in a paperless way. Google Classroom combines Google Drive for assignment creation and distribution, Google Documents, Sheets and Slides for writing, Gmail for communication, and Google Calendar for scheduling. Each class creates a separate folder in the respective user's Drive, where the student can submit work to be graded by a teacher. Teachers can check the progress of each student through the technology, and after being graded, can return work, with comments, for the student to revise and improve the assignment. Teachers who must miss a school day due to sickness or other reasons can have a lesson plan prepared using the technology for a substitute to carry out in their absence. Go Guardian software also enables teachers to monitor student activity online and to filter any potentially harmful or distracting content.

According to Dr. Kathy Bryant, Supervisor of Instruction for grades 7-12, the Chrome Books have arrived at a good time in that all high school students will be state tested on-line for the first time this year. “We must have a device for each of them in order to go through the testing,” she said.

“This is what the students are going to be tested on so they need to become familiar with that device so that when it comes time to test they will be able to take that device and not be intimidated with it. They don’t need to be working with a computer they have never touched before. This will be their computer. They will be assigned this device and it will be their baby for the four years they are in high school,” added Director Cripps.

“We are actually doing a pilot with our 9th grade Algebra I classes and we’re anxious to see if that turns our test scores around in the Algebra classes with the addition of the new technology,” he said.

Director Cripps said he would like to see the schools eventually offer “flipped classrooms”, an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning that reverses the traditional educational arrangement by delivering instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom. It moves activities, including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom. “This has really got me intrigued but it would require us to send them (Chrome Books) home. I am really interested in this concept of “flipping the classroom” which would allow the teacher, instead of sending homework home, to lecture on-line at night while the student is at home and have the student do their work during the day at school while they are with the teacher”.

As with textbooks, students and parents will be responsible for the Chrome Books and could be required to pay for replacing them if they are damaged through carelessness or neglect. They will be asked to sign an agreement adhering to the proper use and care of Chrome Books assigned to them.

“We don’t have them (Chrome Books) insured. Everybody we’ve talked to has told us the cost to maintain and repair them is cheaper than the cost of keeping them insured. But we have talked to other districts and they have said you would be amazed how careful the kids are with those devices because they appreciate having them,” said Director Cripps.

Dr. Bryant said students who don’t have access to a computer or the Internet at home should not be concerned. “I know parents will have a lot of questions, such as how can you expect my child to do homework, without a device at home? We are working with our teachers to be mindful of that and to understand that there are students who don’t have a computer or access to the Internet at home. We are working through all of that and we won’t require students to do anything they don’t have access to. We will not limit them in that way,” she said.

The school system spent $300,000 from the 2016-17 budget to purchase 900 Chrome Books for the high school. This year’s budget includes technology funds to buy Chrome Books for 6th to 8th graders to be provided later in the school year.

“It’s an expense but we’re excited that the school board and the county commission allowed us to purchase them. The county mayor also worked with us to buy these computers to help our students. We are appreciative to all of them and for the support of our teachers and community,” said Director Cripps.

Man Facing Theft Charge for Selling Utility Trailer He Didn't Own

The Smithville Police Department has taken a theft charge against a 19 year old man who has admitted to selling a utility trailer that didn’t belong to him.

Police Chief Mark Collins told WJLE Friday that Colton Gene Young of 307 Hardaway Street, McMinnville will be served with a warrant for theft of property over $1,000. He is currently in the White County Jail on separate charges. Although his address is listed as McMinnville, Chief Collins said Young has actually been living in Sparta.

The theft of the 18 foot black heavy duty dual axle trailer with a wooden floor occurred on Saturday, July 29 and was reported on Monday, July 31.

(VIEW VIDEO OF SMITHVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT FACEBOOK POST OF THE SUSPECT'S TRUCK (DARK TRUCK) AND THE UNSUSPECTING BUYER OF THE UTILITY TRAILER IN THE WHITE TRUCK )

According to Chief Collins, Young spotted the utility trailer setting behind F.Z. Webb and Sons Pharmacy on South Congress Boulevard and stopped to take a picture of it. He then posted the photo on facebook marketplace advertising the trailer for sale. After getting a response from a man in Rutherford County, Young set up a meeting with the unsuspecting customer at the trailer to make the sale. The customer paid for the trailer, hooked it up to his truck and drove away.

After the theft was reported, Smithville Police launched an investigation and discovered that the transaction between Young and the buyer was captured on video from a nearby business. Police later asked for the public’s help in solving the crime by posting on the department’s Facebook page a still frame photo from the video showing Young’s truck.

Chief Collins said police then got a break in the case. “We had a ton of responses from that facebook posting. One man called in and said he had seen that vehicle in Sparta. We called the Sparta Police Department and they went to that location and found the vehicle,” said Chief Collins.

Lieutenant Detective Matt Holmes then went to Sparta and interviewed Young who admitted to having committed this theft and others. “When we got there he told us he had seen our facebook post and was spray painting his truck to change the color from black to blue. He said when he saw a trailer setting somewhere, he would take a picture of it and list it online for sale on the facebook marketplace. People would contact him through facebook if they were interested. They would call him and he would say ‘I’ll be there in five minutes’. He would meet them at the trailer, get the money and then they would hook up the trailer and drive off with it thinking they had bought it,” said Lieutenant Detective Holmes.

“Through our interview with Young we were able to obtain the name and location of this guy who came to buy the trailer. Young said the trailer was in Rutherford County. We sent a Rutherford County deputy to that residence to see if the trailer was there. The following day we went and recovered the trailer. It was still there but again we don’t think he (buyer) was aware of what was going on and he has not been charged,” said Chief Collins.

“Through our investigation, Young became a suspect in thefts discovered in White County. We believe this guy is responsible for trailer thefts in multiple jurisdictions,” he added.

Chief Collins thanked Lieutenant Detective Matt Holmes for his work in helping solve the case and to the man who provided the tip. Because of his helpful information, the caller will get a cash reward from Crime Stoppers.

Chief Collins cautions anyone who is looking to buy through an on-line post to” be sure to check what you are buying. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is,” he said.

A special tribute was paid to the founder of Alexandria Friday morning.

A large framed photograph of Daniel Alexander was placed on permanent display at the Alexandria Public Library. It was recently donated to the library by Alexander’s great great great grandson, Paul Randy Alexander, Jr. of Charlotte, North Carolina.

DeKalb County Historian Thomas G. Webb hosted the observance and was joined by librarians, library board members, and local public officials.

In an historical account of Alexander and the birth of the town, Webb wrote that “The founder of Alexandria, DeKalb County’s second oldest town, was Daniel Alexander, who named the town for himself. Daniel Alexander was born on January 23, 1773 in Maryland, son of James Alexander. He married on August 14, 1800, in Charlotte, Mecklenberg County, North Carolina, his cousin Sarah (Sallie) Alexander, daughter of David Alexander. They moved immediately to Tennessee, where they built and operated for several years a log tavern and inn on the Walton Road near present day Algood, Tennessee. By 1806, he owned a large tract of land on Hickman Creek in Smith County, and on April 15, 1820, Daniel Alexander divided that land into 24 lots, each 66 feet wide and 165 feet long. He reserved for himself lots 1, 2, and 3 (where Alton and Grace Close recently lived). That lot had on it a log two-story house, with a fine spring of water behind it which is still running. The business district was approximately where it is now. Daniel Alexander later moved to Rutherford County, where he died on October 20, 1857. He and his wife are buried near Christiana, Tennessee.
