BLEND to Perform at First Christian Church in Memphis on March 1st

Blend, an a cappella quartet, is returning to Memphis at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1st at the First Christian Church in Memphis.  The a cappella group has made previous appearances in Memphis at both the First Baptist Church and the Memphis Theatre.

Blend was formed at John A. Logan College as a minor project that quickly blossomed into the makings of a successful career for its four members.  Johnathan Estes of the group says, “We started several years ago for a talent show and ended up winning.  From there, found we had a unique sound, so we decided to pursue it as a career.”   The real strength of Blend lies in their ability to entertain crowds of all ages with their energy, humor, renditions of songs which most everyone has heard at some time, all while keeping a Christian undertone.  In addition to their classic doo-wop routine, they are also a deeply spiritual group and love to share their gospel music as well.

The group has performed at churches with their Gospel arrangements and has wowed the crowds at other venues such as fairs, festivals and performing arts centers with their amazing a cappella version of the 50’s and 60’s.  They have been recognized and awarded “BEST OF SHOW 2006 and 2007” in Murray, Kentucky as well as many other awards.  In 2008, Blend appeared as special guests at the Dick Clark American Band Stand Theater in Branson, Missouri.  This led to an offer to perform their show in Branson at the Gene Williams Country Music Theater on a regular basis.  However, the timing was not right.  Blend had to decline the great opportunity due to their dedication to educational responsibilities and pursuits.

While 2008 proved to be a successful year for them, the group made some changes to the presentation of their show.  Developing a show fit for performing arts centers with a bit of nostalgic and unique flair, Blend began touring as far south as Florida and into the northern part of the country in states like Minnesota and South Dakota.  The show quickly gained attention as audiences across the Midwest grew fond of the sounds and entertainment that these four guys bring to the stage with each performance.  Due to this overwhelmingly positive response, Blend was offered the opportunity to perform full-time in the cities of Hannibal, MO and Paducah, KY in 2010.  The group, however, has continued to travel the country in order to be heard more broadly.

After making several appearances through the years in Hot Springs, Arkansas, the city proudly welcomed Blend to present shows daily at the Vienna Theatre through the summer of 2011 and 2012.  In 2014, they were asked to perform regularly at the Five Star Dinner Theatre. Nestled in the heart of downtown Hot Springs, Blend quickly became a “must see” show.  The success has continued for the group in the past few years as they have traveled and performed in spots all over the country.  Blend has worked with various artists, and can be seen performing backup vocals on Ronnie McDowell’s show as well as on his album entitled, “I’m Gonna Dance with the Ones that Brought Me.”  Come see for yourself why people across the country are raving about the very entertaining a cappella quartet from Southern Illinois.  You won’t be disappointed.

Lady Tigers Withstand Hot Start by Van-Far to Win District Opener 75-56

Ashleigh Creek had a big first period to help Scotland County withstand a hot start by Van-Far in the district opener.

Early on in Monday night’s district opener, it appeared like the bracket builders may have made a mistake as the #7 seed Van- Far looked like state champions. The Lady Indians came out on fire, scoring 24 first period points to give #2 seed Scotland County a scare.

Van-Far was on fire from three-point range in the opening eight minutes, sinking six shots from behind the arc.

The Lady Indians opened the scoring with a pair of three-pointers. Abi Feeney started Scotland County off with a drive to the hoop. Chelsea Wood then sank a pair of free throws before Ashleigh Creek hit back-to-back jumpers to pull SCR-I within 9-8. Wood and Creek each had buckets in the paint before Maddie Brassfield sank a three-pointer. A Brassfield free throw knotted the score at 16-16 with 1:31 left in the first period.

Van-Far sank a pair of three-pointers to close the opening frame on top 24-18.

“Obviously that’s not the start you want,” said Coach Cory Shultz. “But I knew our defense was better than that, and it was going to be extremely difficult for them to maintain that level of shooting for four quarters.”

Madie Bondurant made a steal and scored on the fast break to start the second period. Brassfield sank a three-pointer before Abi Feeney converted two free throws. Brassfield scored in the paint with 5:55 left in the second period to give the Lady Tigers their first lead of the game at 27-26.

Calesse Bair scored on an offensive rebound and Feeney followed with a drive to the rim. Bair then stole the inbounds pass and scored a transition bucket to extend the lead to 33-26 and force a Van-Far timeout.

The Lady Indians pulled within two points before Feeney sank two more free throws. A jumper by Creek ended the second period with SCR-I on top 40-35.

Scotland County began to pull away in the third period. Wood opened the quarter with a pair of buckets in the paint and Feeney added a three-point play to push the lead to 47-37.

Chelsea Wood

Scotland County went to the free throw line 13 times in the third period, converting on nine of those chances, before Brassfield capped off the quarter with a three-pointer to put Scotland County out in front 58-42.

Brassfield opened the fourth quarter with a basket off an offensive rebound. Feeney sank four straight free throws to make the score 64-45 with 6:40 left to play. Wood scored on a drive to the hoop and added two more field goals in the paint to cap off a big night. Feeney continued to beat Van-Far off the dribble, scoring on a drive to the hoop before heading back to the free throw line for two more points. The senior made 14 of 15 from the charity stripe on the night, finishing off the 75-56 win for SCR-I.

Scotland County improved to 23-1 on the year and advances to the Class 2 District 6 semifinals to take on #3 seed Paris, a 60-31 winner over Canton.

Feeney led the Lady Tigers with 22 points. Wood finished with 20 while Brassfield had 14 and Creek added nine.

Abi Feeney

Lady Tigers Improve to 22-1 with 47-32 Win at North Shelby in Regular Season Finale

Chelsea Woods goes up for two points in the win over North Shelby.

An off night from long range made for a low-scoring affair Tuesday night at North Shelby, but the Scotland County girls still had more than enough firepower to put a damper on the Raiders senior night festivities with a 47-32 victory.

SCR-I struggled shooting the ball in its regular season finale, connecting on just three three-pointers on the night.

Two of those long distance shots came in the first period, as the Lady Tigers jumped out to a 14-6 lead. SCR-I actually fell behind 4-0 before Abi Feeney connected on a jumper. A three-pointer by Calesse Bair put the Lady Tigers up for good, at 5-4, before Chelsea Wood scored in the paint. A three-pointer by Maddie Brassfield extended the margin to 10-4 with 3:19 left in the first period and forced a North Shelby timeout.

Feeney sank a three-pointer to start the second period to extend the lead to 17-6. The senior point guard then went to work off the dribble, dissecting the North Shelby defense with penetration moves that netted her 11 second-period points.

Sadie Davis fires up the three-pointer.

SCR-I looked poised to truly blow the game open in the third period. Feeney scored on another drive to the hoop before Wood added a field goal in the paint. Bair scored back-to-back transition baskets off of turnovers created by the SCR-I press, making the margin 37-18 and forcing another North Shelby timeout.

The Raiders corrected their issues against the press, but SCR-I still went ahead 44-26 on baskets by Feeney, Wood and Bair.

The offense went dormant in the fourth period. SCR-I did not score until there was just 45 seconds left in the contest, with Bair making three of four free throws in the final minute.

Fortunately the defense was up to the challenge, holding North Shelby to just six fourth quarter points to help secure the 47-32 win.

Abi Feeney gets to the rim for two of her game-high 17 points in SCR-I’s regular season finale win at North Shelby.

Scotland County closed out the regular season with a 22-1 record, the team’s third straight 20-win season. Feeney led the way with 17 points. Bair finished with 16 points and Wood added 11.

CHARLES H. BRADLEY (5/21/1935 – 2/11/2017)

Charles H. Bradley, 81, of Memphis, Missouri passed away Saturday evening, February 11, 2017 at the Scotland County Care Center in Memphis.

The son of Estel Floyd and Lily Hazel Ellicott Bradley, he was born May 21, 1935 in Memphis, Missouri.

He attended school and graduated from the Memphis High School. After graduating he joined the United States Army and served a term there before coming back to help run the family businesses of Bradley Car Sales and Bradley Auto Parts.

After his parents passed he decided to sell the business and served as an alderman for the City of Memphis as long as his health allowed him to.

Charlie was a lifelong active member of the United Methodist Church in Memphis, serving as an usher when he was called upon until he moved to the care center.

His interests included following the St. Louis Cardinals, buying season tickets for the home games and attending the home games as well as stock car races in the area.

He was an avid collector of St. Louis Cardinals memorabilia, even a lap blanket that he used later when he was a resident at the Scotland County Care Center. Charlie was fine as long as he had his radio and every day he would tune in to the St. Louis Cardinals.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Survivors include his cousin, Bob (Linda) Ellicott along with other relatives and friends.

Memorials in his memory may be made to the donor’s choice and may be left at or mailed to Payne Funeral Chapel, 202 E. Madison St. Memphis, Missouri 63555.

Funeral services were held Wednesday morning, February 15, 2017, at 10:00 A.M. at the Payne Funeral Chapel in Memphis with Pastor Paul Smith officiating. Interment followed in the Memphis Cemetery with full military honors provided by the Wallace W Gillespie V.F.W.Post #4958 of Memphis and two from the honor guards unit.

New Beginnings

There is a major part to the Christian belief system that tends to get past some; well…. maybe all of us.  That would be the truth, the fact, that in Christ we are new day by day.  Oh how we struggle to live this out.

At County Fairs some have a competition called a Tractor Pull.  One by one, each tractor is at the starting line pulling a cart with weights that transition into a heavier load as the trek progresses.  Eventually, the tractor stops in its tracks because it can no longer pull the load.  The one that travels the greatest length gets the trophy.

Our daily walk is sometimes just like a Tractor Pull.  The further into the day, the heavier the load until we are shut down in our tracks.  God is very much  aware of our dilemma and is devoted to its reversal. If God is anything, He is all about new, renewal, renewing.  Bible expression and confirmation is there for a reason.  He knows we will experience deep stress and provides a way out.  This isn’t just church chatter.  This is to be life… your life… my life… renewed life… day after day.

Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day (II Cor. 4:16).

Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come (II Cor. 5:17).

It is for this very reason that Jesus called for our new beginning by being born again. Such isn’t a church doctrine as much as it is designed to restart our engines when we do more sputtering than effectively moving forward. Renewal…it’s a daily thing… so look toward it.  Experience it.  And tomorrow?  Start all over… new… again!
