If you haven't made the trip through this little southern town in Decatur County, TN, lately, you might be in for a big surprise.  New sidewalks, new street lights, new bank, new municipal building are all the additions that have spruced up the place.

You know we all talk about high gas prices, high food prices, times being really tough.  Well, really. This weekend, decided we would splurge and go out to dinner and a movie.  Well, the wait time at the restaurant was an hour.  The movie we wanted to see was sold out, there was not even a place to park. So, we decide to go to the mall and pick up a few needed things.  Well, the other half of the city that wasn't at the restaurant or movie, was at the mall.

You know more and more electric companies are offering rebate incentives to customers who buy energy-efficient replacement appliances, siding, and windows.  When buying appliances, I have always been told to go for the highest "R" factor.  Should be better insulated; however, they will cost more.Was reading an article about how long an appliance should last.  Here's what apppliance.net thinks:Refrigerator - 13 yearsDishwasher - 9 YearsClothes Washer - 10 yearsClothes Dryer - 13 yearsWater Heater - 11 yearsRange - 13 yearsTrash Compactor - 6 yearsFreezer - 11 yearsSo...when buying appliances, look for the "Energy Star" symbol.  It should be energy-efficient and supported by the EPA.Happy shopping!Linda Lipscomb, RE/MAX Unlimited, 870 W.

For 33 years Decatur County has held what is now know as the World's Largest Coonhunt.  This year's 3 day event begins on April 10 at the Decatur County Fairgrounds.   Opening ceremonies are Thursday night and include live entertainment.  The hunt gets underway on Friday at noon and Saturday at 9 am.  There will be great concessions throughout the weekend that include fish, barbeque, chicken, burgers, ice cream and wonderful desserts. A John Deere Gator with a tractor will be awarded to some lucky winner. Please remember this event raises money for the the St. Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.  Last year's hunt raised over $180,000 and during the last 33 years has raised over $3 million for this worthy cause.  So mark your calendars so be a part of this fun and exciting tradition...
