Chapel Hill Citizen of the Year

Rex Messick, owner of Rex's Foodland in Chapel hill, has been chosen as Citizen of the Year. Rex began his career int he grocery business as a pre-teen boy racking bottles and filling drink boxes. At the age of 16, he began working for a market in his hometown of Andalusia, AL. He later began a 14 year career with Delchamps, Inc. in Mobile, AL as an apprentice meat cutter and worked his way up the career ladder to Training Director for the entire chain of Delchamps stores which at one point numbered in excess of 100 stores. In 1976, he opened his own store in Wilmer, AL which he operated for 10 years and in 1986 became Retail Counselor and Tennessee Division Manager for Mitchell Grocery, Inc. a large wholesale grocer.

In January of 1996, Rex purchased Moorehead Grocery in Chapel Hill. Due to the rapid growth in population in the Chapel Hill area he expanded his business by building the 25,000 square foot store as well as developing the surrounding property on the south side of town. Rex's development led the way in subsequent growth of this part of Chapel Hill. His strict requirements concerning signage and building appearance raised the bar for commercial construction in Chapel Hill. His attention to aesthetics has set the standard for the future.

Rex's emphasis on customer service and quality products has provided the citizens of Chapel Hill and the Surrounding area a grocery store rarely found in a small town and rural area. His belief in hard work and integrity has worked to instill that positive attribute to his employees. Rex's Foodland's Smart Shopper Program alone benefits 30 + non-profit organizations in the Chapel Hill area and his support of the schools in Chapel Hill and their arts and sports programs are unequalled.

Chapel hill is a much better place in which to live because of the contributions of Rex Messick and his family. The citizens of Chapel Hill are proud to honor him as Citizen of the Year.

 
Holiday Season Can Be Difficult For Seniors Coping With Depression Or Grief

LEWISBURG, Tenn. — The holidays are a joyous time of year that most people anticipate with excitement. Unfortunately, for older adults who may be struggling with depression or loss, the emotions of the holiday season can often bring despair.

 

According to Beth Sweeney, director of Senior Life Solutions at Marshall Medical Center, there are many factors that can cause a person to feel blue during the holiday season.

 

“The holidays often remind us of family members and friends who are no longer with us, as well as traditions of the past. For older adults who are already dealing with health issues, grief or depression, the swell of holiday emotions can sometimes be overwhelming,” said Sweeney.

 

To help those who may be struggling with emotions during the holidays, family members and friends are encouraged to keep a check on older family members and neighbors who may be alone. During holiday gatherings, Sweeney recommends taking steps to ensure that the festivities are enjoyable for everyone.

 

“In addition to reminiscing about past holiday celebrations, consider ways to make new memories that everyone—from the youngest to the oldest—can enjoy,” Sweeney said. “If you know an older relative or friend who is struggling with their emotions, consider referring them to a program that can provide them with support and tools to cope with their feelings.”

 

Senior Life Solutions offers outpatient assistance for older adults dealing with behavioral health issues. Referrals can be made by anyone, including a family member, friend or physician. Programs include group activities, individual and group therapy and more. For more information about Senior Life Solutions, call 931.270.3685.

Two Maury County Residents Charged With Tenncare Fraud

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Two people in Maury County are charged in separate cases with TennCare doctor shopping, or using the state’s Medicaid program to visit multiple doctors in an effort to obtain prescriptions for controlled substances.

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) today announced the arrests of Joshua L. Lindsey, 32, and Leslie Ann Pruitt, 31, both of Columbia.  Each of them is charged with doctor shopping for drugs, using TennCare as payment for the clinical visits, the prescriptions or both.

“The unauthorized use and abuse of prescription drugs is intolerable, especially when TennCare is involved,” Inspector General Manny Tyndall said.  “We will continue to investigate and prosecute anyone who illegally uses the TennCare program, particularly as it relates to prescription drugs.”

TennCare fraud is a Class E felony, carrying a sentence of up to two years in prison. District Attorney General Brent Cooper is prosecuting.

The OIG, which is separate from TennCare, began full operation in February 2005 and has investigated cases leading to over $5 million being repaid to TennCare, with a total estimated cost avoidance of over $176 million for TennCare, according to latest figures.  To date, 2,218 people have been charged with TennCare fraud.

Through the OIG Cash for Tips Program established by the Legislature, Tennesseans can get cash rewards for TennCare fraud tips that lead to convictions.  Anyone can report suspected TennCare fraud by calling 1-800-433-3982 toll-free from anywhere in Tennessee, or log on to www.tn.gov/tnoig/ and follow the prompts that read "Report TennCare Fraud."

Grimes is charged with TennCare fraud in an indictment that accuses her of attempting to obtain a controlled substance by fraudulent means and using TennCare benefits to pay for the controlled substance.

"Pharmacies across the state are becoming more alert to the methods often used by people trying to obtain prescription drugs for personal use or to sell," Inspector General Manny Tyndall said. "We depend on the pharmacists and their employees to assist us in detecting this type of conduct so these people can be stopped and prosecuted."

TennCare fraud is a Class E felony, carrying a sentence of up to two years in prison. District Attorney General Robert Carter is prosecuting.

The OIG, which is separate from TennCare, began full operation in February 2005 and has investigated cases leading to over $5 million being repaid to TennCare, with a total estimated cost avoidance of over $176 million for TennCare, according to latest figures.  To date, 2,220 people have been charged with TennCare fraud.

“The negative growth rate reported in corporate tax collections for October is not unusual for the business cycle,” Martin said.  “October is the month when calendar year tax filers request a refund if they have overpaid their actual tax liability in previous months.

“The sales tax is our best economic indicator, and in October recorded the strongest first quarter growth since 2011. This is encouraging, but we must continue to closely monitor revenues and expenditures to keep Tennessee’s budget balanced.”

On an accrual basis, October is the third month in the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

General fund collections for October were $10.2 million more than the budgeted estimate, and the four other funds that share in state tax collections were $5.1 million above the estimate.

Sales tax collections were $17.5 million above the estimate for October.  The October growth rate was 7.27%. The year-to-date growth rate was positive 6.44%.

Franchise and excise combined collections for October were $26.8 million, which is $19.2 million below the budgeted estimate of $46.0 million.

Gasoline and motor fuel collections increased by 7.67%, which is $1.8 million above the budgeted estimate of $71.3 million.

Tobacco tax collections for the month were over collected by $3.1 million.

Privilege tax collections were $1.9 million more than the budgeted estimate of $27.0 million.

Inheritance and Estate taxes were over collected by $3.9 million for the month.

Business tax collections were $0.7 million above the October estimate.

Hall income taxes were over collected by $2.2 million in October.

All other taxes were over collected by a net of $3.4 million.

Year-to-date collections for three months were $101.6 million more than the budgeted estimate. The general fund was over collected by $91.0 million and the four other funds were over collected by $10.6 million.

The budgeted revenue estimates for 2014-2015 are based on the State Funding Board’s consensus recommendation of December 17th, 2013 and adopted by the second session of the 108th General Assembly in April 2014. They are available on the state’s website at: http://www.tn.gov/finance/bud/Revenues.shtml.
