Car Seat Safety


 

 

Parents often ask child safety seat experts what is the safest seat for their baby. Truth be told, for an infant or young child, it is not the brand of seat they purchase, but the direction they face the seat in their vehicle that will save their child’s life. Since 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has been recommending that children stay rear-facing until age 2 or to the limit of the seat for the best crash protection. The reasoning behind this recommendation is that rear-facing car seats support the head, neck and spine of infants and toddlers, and distribute crash forces over the entire body rather than at the harnesses. So why do children need the extra protection of the rear-facing seat? The main reason is that the neck and spine of an infant or young child are not fully developed and need extra protection. A small child’s head is a larger proportion of their body weight than it is for an adult — 25 percent for a child compared to about six percent for an adult. That extra weight needs a strong neck and spine to help support it during a crash when the head can be violently snapped forward causing a spinal injury, which can lead to paralysis or death.

KDET Celebrates it's Birthday


 

 

KDET began broadcasting in February 1949 under the ownership of Tom Foster and the management of Robert Jackson "Jack" Bell. From then until the year 2000, its highly successful format catered to the farmers, ranchers, sportsmen, and small-town residents of Deep East Texas and Northwestern Louisiana.
 
Chief star of KDET from 1966 until 2000 was Jack Everett "Jack Mack" McLendon who, while known to his listeners for his early-morning show including a crowing rooster at sign-on and the school lunch menus in rhyme, was also the most prolific producer of advertising on KDET.  Jack Mack's cousin Mattie Imelda McLendon Dellinger talked to listeners with her call-in show "Mattie's Partyline" in the 1990s and early 2000s.
 
Now the morning news and events are done by the trio of David Jacobs, Justin Mott, and Rob Payne.

Operation Desert Storm Memorial


 

 

On January 16, 1991, President George H. W. Bush announced the start of what would be called Operation Desert Storm—a military operation of coalition forces from 34 nations to expel occupying Iraqi forces from Kuwait, which Iraq had invaded and annexed months earlier.   When the war ended on February 28th, 1991, 148 Americans had died in battle.
 
 
 
To remember the service and sacrifice of those Americans who participated in this war, Shelby County Memorial Veterans for Foreign Wars Post 8904 and the Auxiliary will conduct a wreath laying at the Veterans Memorial on the grounds of the Historic Courthouse in Center.  The program will be held Wednesday, February 28th, at 10:00 am.  As always, the public is encouraged to attend and help honor Desert Storm Veterans.  Questions contact Post Quartermaster Larry Hume at 598-2976.

Panola men go 2-0 defeat 18th ranked Paris, Navarro


 

 
Carthage, Texas – The Panola College men’s basketball team defeated 18th ranked Paris Junior College this past Wednesday and Navarro College over the weekend. With the two wins, Panola elevates their conference record to 9-5 and overall record to 16-8. “This was two good wins for our ball team. On Wednesday we never gave up and on Saturday we executed really well all game long.” Head Coach Grant McMillan stated.
 
On Wednesday, both Paris and Panola came out scorching hot from the field as Paris took a 47-45 halftime lead. Paris gradually took control in the second half taking a 10 point lead 73-63 with just under 7:00 minutes remaining. Panola chipped away and took a 82-81 lead with 1:15 remaining on a Marlon Taylor three-pointer. A Shandon Goldman dunk with 30 seconds remaining all but sealed the victory as Panola won 87-83.
 
Against Navarro, Panola held a steady lead most of the half taking a 37-34 halftime lead. Navarro tied the ball game up at 41 before eight straight points by TJ Killings helped separate Panola lead midway through the second half. Panola gradually increased the lead the rest of the way to the 87-83 victory.

Food Safety: It’s In Your Hands will be offered by the Shelby County Extension Office on Wednesday, February 21st, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the Shelby County Extension Office Meeting room located at 266 Nacogdoches St. in Center, Texas 75935.
 
This two-hour course is highly recommended for all food service employees to promote the service of safe food. The course is a basic overview of food safety practices that are necessary to ensure that safe food is served at your establishment. Practices discussed include good personal hygiene, cross contamination, and time and temperature abuse.
 
To register for this course, contact Jheri-Lynn McSwain, County Extension Agent at 936-598-7744 or jlmcswain@ag.tamu.edu.

VFW TO OBSERVE THE SINKING OF THE USS MAINE


 

 

 
The Spanish-American War lasted a little less than four months, April 21st – August 13th, 1898 and ended Spain’s worldwide empire.  It ended with America easily defeating Spain and signaled the United States emergence as a world power.  The blowing up of the battleship USS Maine in Havana harbor on February 15th, 1898 with the loss of 266 crewmen and marines in essence was the start of the war.
 
The war ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris on December 10, 1898 which established the independence of Cuba gave Puerto Rico and Guam to the United States and allowed the US to purchase the Philippines Islands from Spain for $20 million.  The brief war cost the United States $250 million and 3,000 lives of which 90% perished from yellow and typhoid fever and other infectious diseases.
 
The Veterans of Foreign Wars traces its roots back to these veterans who founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service.  There was no medical care or veterans’ pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves.  These formed organizations would become what is now known as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States.
 
In observance of the sacrifices made by the Veterans of the Spanish American War and those who died aboard the USS Maine, Shelby County Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Auxiliary will conduct a wreath laying at the Veterans Memorial on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.  As always the public is invited.  Call Larry Hume, 598-2976 for more information.

Panola College building wins design award


 

 

 
The Health & Natural Sciences Building at Panola College has been recognized for design excellence in a national competition sponsored by *American School & University* magazine. David Zatopek of Corgan Architects, the Dallas architecture and design firm who designed and built the structure, presented the award to the Panola College Board of Trustees at the board meeting on Monday, January 29, 2018. Clint Binkley and Cody Stonger, both of Hunt Construction, were also present at the award presentation.
 
Announced in the Architectural Portfolio 2017 issue of *American School & University *magazine, the winning projects are also displayed online at SchoolDesigns.com. The Panola College project is featured in the online portfolio of 2017 winners that includes, among others, the American University of Central Asia in Kyrgyzstan, Washington University in St. Louis, Grand Rapids Community College in Michigan, the University of Hawaii Ka ‘lmi ‘lke Education Building, Edgecombe Community College in North Carolina, and the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio Center for Oral Health Care.
 
The building’s design required careful planning to accommodate laboratories, classroom, study areas, and office space for the structure that anchors the southwest quadrant of the Carthage campus. Encompassing 64,000 square feet, the building was completed in August 2015.
 
In addition to the Health & Natural Sciences Building, Corgan designed and built the expansion to the M.P. Baker Library, and the Charles C. Matthews Foundation Student Center.
 
“It’s gratifying to learn that the Health & Natural Sciences Building has received this design award,” said Dr. Greg Powell, Panola College President. “Working with Corgan and Hunt Construction on this project was a pleasure. Our faculty, staff and students reap the benefits of their design expertise every day as we educate future health care professionals.”
