Jul 28, 2016
9:30 a.m.
County Complex

County Clerk James L. (Jimmy) Poss is asking all Auto Dealers in DeKalb County to attend a new Dealer Drive-Out EZ Tag demonstration. This will be conducted Thursday July 28 at 9:30 a.m. in the meeting room adjacent to the UT extension office at the county complex. This new option is available but not currently mandated for all dealers. It has numerous benefits and features for dealerships that will be explained in detail. The customer will still assume a temporary tag fee. However, there is NO software cost to the dealer. Dealers are only responsible for their computer, laser printer and blank synthetic paper required for printing tags. Participating dealers find that the program is fast, efficient, and time saving

5th annual Earl Judkins Golf Classic Set for July 30

Jul 30, 2016
8:00 a.m.
Smithville Golf Course

The 5th annual Earl Judkins Golf Classic will be held Saturday, July 30 at Smithville Golf Course to raise money for 4 year old Karly Campbell who was diagnosed with leukemia in February. She is the daughter of Alex and Marly Campbell of Smithville.

The event is hosted by the Cantrell Cancer Benefit Foundation and all proceeds will go directly to benefit Karly and her family. “Karly was diagnosed this year but is on the up and up from what her parents tell us but that doesn’t mean she is done with treatment. She is still going to be going through some pretty rigorous tests just to make sure she is in the clear so we want to help her out as much as we can,” said Caroline Cantrell.

The golf classic began five years ago to help families who have been affected by cancer. “We are looking to serve families who have been affected by cancer. Cancer has hit our family a couple of times pretty hard. We know how hard it is to struggle and we want to just help those families,” said Tyler Cantrell.

Those wishing to be served must first apply. A committee then reviews the applications and selects a recipient each year. The man for whom the classic is named, the late Earl Judkins, was an avid golfer and a cancer patient.

“Our family was affected by cancer five years ago with my sister the late Amy Miller so we know how hard it is for families. My great uncle Earl Judkins, the man for whom the classic is named passed away several years ago from colon cancer,” said Tyler.

Previous recipients of the benefit golf classic were Amy Miller, Chrissy Means, Gracie Dezarn, and Edith Johnson McReynolds.

This Golf Classic begins with a shotgun start at 8:00 a.m. The entry fee is $60 for an individual golfer or $240 for a team of four. (Includes 18 holes with cart and meal-mulligans can be bought prior to the shotgun start). Lunch will be provided. Door prizes and a raffle will be available but no cash prizes.

“We’re looking for any golfer. It doesn’t matter if you are a scratch golfer or a soon to be pro. Its a four man team. You can bring your own team but if you don’t have a team we can put you with anybody. We are just looking to benefit this little girl and her family,” said Tyler.

The format is a 4-person A,B,C,D, Scramble/Own Team-Best Ball. For more information contact Tyler Cantrell at Like them on Facebook at Cantrell Cancer Benefit Foundation or Phone 1-931-239-5948 or contact the Smithville Golf Course to sign up at 615-597-6648. Donations may be made to the Cantrell Cancer Benefit Foundation. Mail to 625 Foster Road, Smithville, TN 37166 or bring them by Center Hill Cross Fit.

Meanwhile, a Cross Fit competition will be held the weekend before the golf classic which will also serve as a benefit for Karly. Call or email to get more information
