Woman Rescues Five From Burning Home Quick action by Mrs. Wilfredo Soto this morning possibly saved the lives of some five persons. Mrs. Soto was talking to her mother on the telephone around 9:30 this morning when she smelled smoke from the other end of the house, located on Marlie Circle in Eldredge Acres. Her telephone is located in the kitchen. When she reached a bedroom in the other end of the house, Mrs. Soto found smoke coming from a closet. She said she tried to smother the smoke and flames with blankets but was unsuccessful. Mrs. Soto keeps two elderly women during the day and helped them get out of the burning home. One of the women had to be carried by Mrs. Soto who then came back into the house and got her 3-month old daughter from her crib. The baby was already breathing smoke and according to Mrs. Soto’s mother, Mrs. Walter Bell, the baby’s face was black with smoke. The baby’s bottle was covered with smoke and the walls near the crib were also blackened. After getting the baby to safety, Mrs. Soto got her 4-year old son out of the house. The Sotos have another child, a 9-year old boy. Mrs. Soto reportedly received burns to her hands and feet in trying to put the fire out and rescue everyone. Fire Chief Bill Ragsdale noted the department received the call and stayed at the site until 10:28. He also said one bedroom received heavy damage while the remainder of the house received smoke damage. The Sotos had been living in the house for one year. All of the children’s clothing and furniture were burned with other household items receiving smoke damage. more

The Cleveland Civil Air Patrol squadron was well represented by cadets this July at the Tennessee Wing CAP Encampment. Four cadets served on staff, and two cadets experienced encampment for the first time. The stated purpose of Tennessee’s cadet encampment is “for cadets to develop leadership skills, investigate the aerospace sciences and related careers, commit to a habit of regular exercise, and solidify their moral character.” In 2013 the Tennessee Wing was the First Encampment nationally to fully implement Encampment Standardized Curriculum Guide. The TN Wing continued to lead the way in 2014 as a premier Encampment in CAP following the Encampment Standardized Curriculum. This standard has attracted cadets from across the nation. Attending cadets were divided into squadrons and then smaller flights for the exercises and classes in leadership, the mission of CAP, and fitness. The flights competed through the week working each day for the recognition of Honor flight with hopes of earning Honor Flight for Encampment. C/LtCol. Nathaniel Wilkie, a former Cleveland squadron cadet commander, was selected as this year's TN Wing Encampment cadet commander. Wilkie had attended five previous TNWG encampments, serving at nearly every level of cadet staff. He was awarded the Commandant’s Award in 2017 and Outstanding Cadet Officer in 2018. He also received the Commander’s Award for his service in this year’s encampment. First time attendees, Cadet/MSgt Michael Robinson and Cadet/MSgt Ella Brock both look forward to returning on staff in spite of 6 a.m. PT, full days, and classes. Ultimate Frisbee, a ride in a Blackhawk helicopter, and lifetime friendships made the lessons of discipline and responsibility worth every second of planks or sit-ups. Robinson earned Most Improved Cadet for 2019 at encampment. more
Lee Cinema Prof’s Film Selected to Screen at Film Festivals By Ashley Walker   Lee University’s Matthew Fisher recently had a short film selected to screen at two Tennessee film festivals. The short film, “Friend of a Friend,” is a 12-minute dark comedy about a failed musician who takes a job at his uncle’s pet crematorium.   “Friend of a Friend” screened at the Knoxville Film Festival on Sept. 14 and will screen at PUSH! Film Festival in Bristol, Tennessee, on Saturday, Oct. 12.   “This is an exciting phase in the filmmaking process,” said Fisher. “You get to screen a film for real audiences and see their reaction. It’s also a great opportunity to show young filmmakers that creative work is happening all the time at Lee.”   Fisher, associate professor of cinema, joined Lee’s faculty in 2011. He teaches classes in screenwriting, directing, film theory, and film criticism. The films he has written and directed have screened and won awards at festivals internationally, including Austin Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival, Cannes Court Métrage, and the Short Shorts Festival in Tokyo. His 2015 film “Pilgrim” was shot in Reykjavik, Iceland, and was selected by the Cine Gear Expo and LA Shorts Fest.    The film is a collaboration by Lee Cinema faculty, staff, students, and outside professionals.   For more information about Fisher’s films, visit:   more
