Hensley facing federal Old fashioned fun. . .
‘whistleblower’ lawsuit
Henderson County Highway Superintendent
Harold Hensley is facing yet more legal troubles
after three current and former employees filed a
federal lawsuit against both Hensley and the
county for violation of their first amendment rights
earlier this month.
The lawsuit is just another of many accusations
and legal problems that have beleaguered Hensley’s re-election bid, beginning with charges of official misconduct and misappropriation of county
equipment and funds by would-be political challenger James Lindsey soon after the qualifying
deadline to run for the superintendent’s position.
Hensley also may be facing disciplinary action
concerning reported possible environmental violations at the department’s main work area on Highway 412 East, and has reportedly had repeated
run-ins with County Commissioner Terry Stewart,
who chaired the ethics committee that heard the
charges brought by Lindsey and reported the possible violations to state and federal authorities.
According to the new lawsuit, brought by Attorney Michael L. Russell of Gilbert, Russell,
McWherter, PLC, of Jackson, on behalf of Carey
Rodgers, Bobby Corbit and Andrew Anson, Hensley has allegedly taken retaliatory action against
the plaintiffs because they “reported illegal activity to county, state and federal officials.”
The suit states that the plaintiffs believe Hensley
deliberately delayed calling Rodgers and Corbit
back to work from seasonal layoffs until April of
this year and “has still failed to recall Anson.”
The suit also alleges that Hensley has “engaged
in a series of retaliatory actions toward “Rodgers
and Corbit,” since their return to work.
The suit also alleges that Hensley has repeatedly threatened both men

An estimated 2,000 people took a few
moments to step back in time on Lexington’s Court Square Saturday to
take part in the third annual Henderson County Folk Festival. Attendees
were treated to music, games, food,
exhibits and demonstrations from
days gone by including (from top left)
flint knapping, live bluegrass performances and an old fashioned quilting bee.

issues took top billing at
the Henderson County
School Board’s monthly
meeting last week,
though neither action
required specific board
approval to proceed.
The board heard a
proposal by Lexington
High School Principal
Larry McBryde to institute a ninth-grade academy at the high school.
McBryde said the program would not require
additional staff or funding, though both would
be nice, and that the
aim of the project was to
“place students in a situation where they can
be successful.”
McBryde said many
students who later drop
out are often lost in
their first year of high
school.
“They get bored or
they
get
behind,”
McBryde said, and then
those students lose
interest or the ability to

With just hours to collect the required signatures, some residents’
hopes of preventing the
county commissioner
from instituting a special wheel tax to cover
construction costs associated with a new jail

Henderson County
Administrator of Elections Bob Wadley said
petitions have been
turned in yesterday, but
they were short the
number of the required
signatures.
“After we discounted
the signatures that
weren’t filled out properly, or weren’t even
Henderson County residents, there were only
761 possible signatures
on the petition,” Wadley
said, short of the 891
required to force the
issue to an August referendum. Wadley said
the petitioner was notified of the shortage and

Mr. Bennie and Ms. Marie Stanfill, of Lexington, were surprised by their family with
a celebration honoring them on their 60th wedding anniversary. On Saturday, May 8,
1948, the couple eloped to Corinth, Miss., after eight months of courtship. Bennie is the
son of the late Mr. Rady Hickman Stanfill and the late Ms. Drexel Bell Blankenship
Stanfill. Marie is the daughter of the late Mr. Elbert Johnson Jowers and the late Ms.
Jimmie Opal Bartholomew Jowers Wall. Together the couple share two sons, Steve
Stanfill and Jimmy Stanfill, along with seven grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. The couple is enjoying retirement from the Milan Arsenal and the family-owned
business, Stanfill's Cloth Shoppe. During six decades of marriage, God has and is continuing to bless this special couple in many ways.

gain the necessary signatures.
But even that may
not be enough to force
the issue, Wadley said.
“Once we know we
have enough possible
signatures, then they
will have to be verified,”
Wadley said.
“We’ll have to check
each signature and
match it with our regis-
tered voters list. Usually, we wind up having
to discount about 10 to
15 percent of the total
number of signatures
during that process.”
But Wadley said he
isn’t going to even begin
the process unless petitions can produce at
least 160 names by this
afternoon.
“There really isn’t
much point in verifying
the names unless we
know there’s a chance
to meet the required
number,” Wadley said.
If the required signatures are gathered, the

would
become a referendum
to be decided by Henderson County voters
during the August General Election.
them.”
McBryde said similar
programs have shown
marked improvement in
graduation rates across
the country, and that it
is a program he is familiar with, having instituted a similar program at
his previous school in
Florida.
Director of Schools
Kip Reel
said
both
county high schools
currently have about a
30 percent dropout rate
before graduation, and
that since no new funding was required, the
board did not have to
take action for the program to proceed.
“But we certainly
wanted the board to be
informed of what’s going
on when people begin to
ask,” Reel said, “and we
would appreciate the
board’s blessing.”
The
board
voted
unanimously to approve
the program.
The board also voted
to work with the Henderson County Commission to pursue a
lower cost alternative to
fix sanitary and environmental issues at five
of the county’s seven
elementary schools. The
system’s
current
lagoons do not meet
state
and
federal
requirements.

with further layoffs and
ordered other employees
to report the actions of
both men back to him.
“Hensley’s actions are
in reckless and willful
disregard to Plaintiff’s
well established rights
under the First Amendment to the United
States
Constitution,”
the suit states.
The plaintiffs are
requesting a jury trial to
seek remuneration for
“lost wages, lost benefits, reinstatement of
their seniority, compensatory damages associated with wrongful discharge,...attorney’s fees
and costs, punitive
damages and any further equitable relief to
which they may be entitled.”
The case is scheduled
to be heard in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee in Jackson.
County officials confirmed that the county
has been served with
notice of the lawsuit as
of last week.
Hensley and his attorney, Steve Milam are
scheduled to address
the Henderson County
commission during a
called meeting Monday
night at the Henderson
County
Courthouse.
The subject of that
address was not known
as of press time.

Honoring and Remembering. . .
Several local law enforcement officers, their friends, family and supporters gathered
at the Henderson County Courthouse yesterday to recognize National Police Week
to honor current law enforcement officers and to remember those who have died in
the line of duty. Among the speakers for the event were Henderson County Sheriff
Brian Duke, Lexington Police Chief Roger Loftin and Field Representative for Sen.
Bob Corker, Jane Jolly. Loftin told attendees that a constable killed on Jan. 3, 1791
became the first peace officer killed in the line of duty in the United States, and that
since that time some 19,000 officers have given their lives in similar fashion, including two Lexington officers, Arthur Gourley (1956) and Richard Carrington (1981).
Jolly, the wife of a career officer herself, said she was shocked to realize that more
than 180 officers were killed last year, and that Tennessee ranks 15th among the 50
states for officers killed. Those in attendance hoped the event would raise awareness
of the service officers provide and the dangers they face daily.

Tigers down Sycamore 7-3, reach region title game
The Lexington Big Red
Tigers took one more step
toward Spring Fling Monday night after beating the
Sycamore War Eagles 7-3
in the Region 6-AA semifinal at Guy B. Amis Park.
The win gives the Tigers
(28-4) the chance to
defend their region title
against Bolivar at 6 p.m.
tonight at Guy B. Amis
Park. A win would keep
the Big Red at home for
Friday’s sectional round
against the winner of the
5-AA
final
between
Franklin Road Academy
and David Lipscomb.
Should the Tigers lose,
they will travel to the 5-AA
winner.
Senior ace Billy Keck
improved to 11-0 on the
mound, but it was at the
plate where Keck did most
of his damage.
Keck went 2-3 with a pair
of two-run home runs and
six total RBI in the win.
LHS struck first when
Keck’s sacrifice fly scored
Dale Kizer, who led off with
a single.
Sycamore had a chance
to do some damage in the
top of the second inning
after
Keck
walked
Sycamore pitcher B.J.
Walker. But Chase Hunter’s
line drive went straight into
the glove of LHS first baseman Celtic Rush, who then
stepped on first base to
force Walker out at first and
record the double play.
Senior right fielder Ryan
McPherson’s leadoff double
in the bottom of the third
set up Keck’s first two-run
bomb, which gave the
Tigers a 3-0 lead after three
complete innings.
Sycamore fought back in
the fourth, scoring two runs
as a result of an error and
three walks. But Keck
retired the side on a strikeout and got the Big Red out
of the bases loaded jam still
leading 3-2.
But Sycamore came back
again the the top of the
fifth, tying the game 3-3 on
Walker’s two-out RBI single
up the middle.
But that’s all they would
get. Senior catcher Roy
Beecham ended Sycamore’s
threat after picking off the
Sycamore baserunner trying to steal second to close
the top half of the fifth.
And with momentum
back on their side, the Big
Red rolled.
Kizer reached on an
error, setting up Keck’s second two-out two-run blast,
which pushed the Big Red
lead to 5-3.
LHS held Sycamore silent
in the top of the sixth, then
added two more insurance
runs in the bottom half of
the inning when Keck drew
a bases-loaded walk and
Dale Kizer scored from
third on a balk.
Keck and Co. closed the
game in the seventh with
two strikeouts and a
groundout to Rush, sealing
the 7-3 win and guaranteeing themselves a shot at
tonight’s region title game
and a home sectional game
Friday.
The Big Red completed
district play in formidable
fashion after winning the
District 12-AA title last
Wednesday night in Bolivar.
Rush accounted for four
of the Tigers’ six runs in the

6-0 win over the Bolivar
Tigers.
Rush went 3-3 at the
plate, including two 2-run
home runs, while Keck held
the Green Tigers scoreless
while giving up four hits.
And Keck got plenty of
help from his defense. The
Tigers recorded three double plays to end as many
innings on solid fielding by
shortstop Ryan Johnson
and second baseman Jordan Dunaway.
LHS took control in the
first inning when Billy
Keck’s RBI single scored
Dale Kizer, who reached
on a single. Rush’s first
homer followed, bolstering
the Big Red’s lead to 3-0
after one complete inning.
After three scoreless
innings, the Big Red
padded their lead with
three runs in the fifth
inning. The first run
came when Johnson
scored on Henderson’s
sacrifice fly, and the next
two from Rush’s second
two-run shot.
Keck was named 12-AA
co-MVP, along with Bolivar catcher Clint Barnes.
Henderson, McPherson
and Rush received 12-AA
First Team All-District
honors and Hehe, Johnson and Kizer were
named to the All-District
Second Team.
Beecham, Henderson,
Keck and Rush were
named to the 12-AA All
Tournament team.
The Lady Tigers suffered a season-ending 32 loss to the McNairy
Central Lady Bobcats in
last Wednesday’s semifinal round of the 12-AA
softball tournament in
Henderson.
Freshman
Carissa
Boring provided key hits
to keep the Lady Tigers
in contention.
Boring’s RBI hit in the
fourth
inning
cut
McNairy’s lead to 3-2,
but the Lady Bobcats
turned on the defense
and kept LHS at bay to
take the 3-2 win.
LHS reached semifinal
play by beating Bolivar
2-1 last Tuesday.
Seniors Shree Carver
and
Nicole
Coleman
joined freshmen Shelese
Arnold and Carissa Boring on the 12-AA All-district team.
TOP: LHS 2B Jordan Dunaway was an integral part of the Big Red’s
defensive effort in last week’s Dist. 12-AA title game. Dunaway had a

RHS edges Scotts Hill
in 15-A tourney battle
The Scotts Hill Lions
came close to advancing
through to the semifinal
round of the 15-A tournament last week, but
saw a 5-2 lead turn into
a 6-5 loss to the Riverside Panthers Friday at
JCS.
Riverside held a 2-1 lead
until the Lions tied the
game 2-2 in the top of
the second inning. Then
the momentum turned
black and gold, as Scotts
Hill took a 4-2 lead and
the momentum in the
top of the fifth inning.
But the Panthers roared
back, scoring four runs
in the sixth inning to go
up 6-4 with three outs to
go.
Scotts Hill looked as
though they were poised
to regain the lead after
scoring a run in the top
of the seventh inning,
but the Panthers held
the Lions off and took
the 6-5 win, ending
Scotts Hill’s season.
Rocky Scott took the
loss for the Lions. He
went 2-3 at the plate.
Hunter Hayes was 2-2
batting with a double,
and Mark Malone went
2-4 with a double.
Lions named to the 15A All-District team were
senior Cody Powell and
sophomores
Hayes,
Malone and Scott.

Sears receives appointment to West Point
Jackson Christian School senior
Samuel Sears has accepted an
appointment to attend the United
State Military Academy this fall.
Through the effort, belief and
encouragement of William ‘Bill’
Duffy and the congressional
nomination of Congressman Marsha Blackburn, Sears was awarded this opportunity. Sears is the
son of Kimba and Gerald Sears of
Lexington.
Sears is one of the first residents
of Henderson County to receive an
appointment to attend West Point.
He is looking forward to the academic challenge and to playing for
Army football and soccer teams of
Army.
Duffy, Sears’ head soccer coach
at JCS, is a West Point graduate
and now serves as area field director for West Point. Duffy said that
after getting to know Sears, he saw
in him the academic, leadership
and physical qualities that would
be a great fit for him at West
Point. After interviewing Sears,
Blackburn also
was
convinced that
he was a
great
choice,
warranted
a
congressional
nomination
and
deserved the
opportunity to
attend West Point.
Sears will graduate from JCS this
month and leaves to join the West
Point Class of 2012 in June.
