The Tennessee College of Applied Technology Ripley is one of 27 TCATs and 40 total institutions in the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) system that are located across the state, serving the citizens of Tennessee. The TBR and the Board of Trustees of the University of Tennessee System are coordinated by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC). THEC was created by the General Assembly in 1967 to achieve coordination and unity in the programs of public higher education in Tennessee. The Tennessee College of Applied Technology Ripley formerly the Ripley State Area Vocational-Technical School, under the direction of the Tennessee Board of Education, first opened its doors on November 13, 1967. All initial students of the school were Ripley High School juniors and seniors. Course offerings included Auto Mechanics, Electronics, and Office Occupations. The first certificates of completion were issued to students in May of 1968. The first postsecondary students were accepted at the campus in 1973, enrolling in the Practical Nurse Education program. Additional adult enrollment in other programs began in 1974 on a space available basis. A Basic Skills class (Technology Foundations) was added in 1979. This program was designed to provide remedial opportunities for adult students.

The TBR system was created by legislation enacted by the 1963 General Assembly of Tennessee, Chapter 229 of House Bill 633. Chapter 181, Senate Bill 746-House Bill 697, of the Public Act of 1983 transferred the governance of the state technical institutes and area vocational-technical schools from the State Board of Education to the Tennessee Board of Regents. The transfer became effective on July 1, 1983. In May 1993, a joint proposal from community leaders and center personnel was made to the Tennessee Board of Regents requesting relocation of the Ripley State Area Vocational Technical School. With a pledge of $100,000 from Lauderdale County and donated land from the City of Ripley, the project was approved for inclusion on the State’s Master Plan. By action of the Tennessee Legislature in 1994, the school name changed from Ripley State Area Vocational Technical School to Tennessee Technology Center at Ripley. Groundbreaking for the new facility was held on December 19, 1995. Classes began on March 31, 1997. With the opening of the new facility came the addition of new class offerings and termination of a previous class offering. Computer Aided Drafting, Computer Operations Technology, and Commercial Truck Driving were added while Auto Mechanics was closed.

In 2013, the Legislature unanimously approved changing the name of the state’s technology centers to the Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology. The Tennessee Board of Regents, the governing body for TCAT Ripley, underwent a major shift in 2017 because of the FOCUS Act of 2016 and the appointment of a new Chancellor, Dr. Flora Tydings. The FOCUS Act seeks to ensure the state’s community Colleges and TCATs are organized, supported, and empowered in efforts to increase the percentage of Tennesseans with a postsecondary credential. Largely this involved the development of local governing boards for each of the six universities thus allowing TBR a greater focus on the 13 community Colleges and 27 TCATs. Additional TBR efforts under the leadership of Dr. Tydings included the retitling of the chief administrative officers of the TCATs Director to President the movement towards all 40 campuses in the TBR system operating with shared services and, the restructuring of the TBR organization uniting the community and TCATs through common offices and services.

Bells Service Delivery Area

In 2001 the Service Delivery Areas (SDAs), as designed by the Tennessee Department of Labor, were changed statewide. Included in the new SDA for Ripley was neighboring Crockett County. The Tennessee College of Applied Technology Ripley, seeing an opportunity to expand, approached the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Jackson about taking over a struggling Practical Nursing Program at an Alamo, TN location. TCAT Jackson readily agreed to transfer the program. Once an agreement had been reached, TCAT Ripley approached the Crockett county Board of Education about forming a partnership. The proposal was to offer additional post-secondary classes at the site where the current Practical Nursing program was being offered. A new building was erected in Bells, Tennessee with the intent to house various educational programs. This project was a partnership between local and state government, the Tennessee Board of regents, and private donations. In January 2011, the move was made to relocate students from the Alamo facility to the new Crockett County Higher Education Center in Bells, Tennessee. The ribbon-cutting was held on February 11, 2011. TCAT Ripley offers programs at the Bells Service Center including Patient Care Technology/Medical Assisting and Practical Nursing.

Currently, the college has eighteen (8) programs with certificate and diploma levels in each program. Students may be enrolled in these programs on a part-time basis if they are unable to attend full-time.

What Was The Definitive Worst Year In History?

Could the worst year in history have been mired in a global pandemic, experiencing quickened climate change, ravaging explosions, and people fighting for food and goods at the grocer? You may think we’re describing 2020, but we’re actually talking about the year 536—the year discovered to be much worse than 2020 and that earned the title of the worst year in history.

It took us some time to arrive at our final candidate, however. So, first, let’s run down a list of some honorable mentions…

1945, Atomic Bombings

While 1945 might be considered a good year, as it included the end of World War II, the end of those wars didn’t leave human civilization with good portents. Not only were both sides of the planet engulfed by conflict, but the systematic killing of 11 million civilians and the invention and use of nuclear bombs had effects on the world that we’re still grappling with to this day.

The proliferation of nuclear weapons alone represented the first man-made existential threat to the world, one that is unique even in the timeline of the worst years in history.

Despite the relative carnage of war and atomic weapons, however, humankind bounced back pretty hard after 1945. The Medical Revolution, in concert with the establishment of the United Nations, has largely steeled humanity against many of the potential dangers facing the world, including Pandemic response and famine—two factors that will be far larger factors in later worst-year candidates.

1520, Smallpox In America

CC Alejandro Linares Garcia

In April of 1520, conquistador Panfilo de Navarez arrived in Mexico to assist Hernan Cortes in a war with the Aztec Empire. A secret stowaway was aboard his ship, however. Unknowingly, he brought smallpox to the New World. Cortes was unequivocally outmatched by conventional means of subjugating the native Empire.

Cortes was actually defying Spanish orders to come to the continent and had only managed to come meagerly provisioned. The disease, however, did most of the work for him. Diseases brought to the New World are believed to have killed 90-95% of the native population. Empires throughout the Americas were brought to ruin. Spreading death ahead of the Spanish, the Incan Empire was practically in ruin before having a chance to defend themselves.

While the Aztecs fell, elsewhere, North American Natives fell victim to Smallpox. Resulting in a very distinct skin rash that makes the skin look as if it is covered in bumps, these pustules were able to form over the eyes, swell the joints, and even crack bones. American colonists at Fort Pitt would later intentionally try and disperse the disease by giving Delaware tribe members linens from their smallpox hospital.

While it’s no doubt a tragic moment in history, the smallpox epidemic really raged for centuries before being completely eradicated in 1979.

1349, The Black Death

The Triumph of Death, by Bruegel the Elder

While the Black Death is the most deadly epidemic in history, killing an estimated 60% of Europeans during its pestilence, it lasted a long time—spread across eight years as it ravaged Europe. Whereas we talked about recovery in the wake of WWII after 1945, the Bubonic Plague set European population levels back nearly 200 years. Like COVID-19, the disease was spread mostly from person to person, albeit via human fleas once the plague made it to Europe in the fleas on black rats.

Like smallpox, the black plague had some horrifying symptoms. Along with seizures, fevers, and gangrene, painful lymph swelling could occur under the arms and on the groin, turning purple and painful. These so-called “bubos” were just the beginning and were soon followed by the extremities literally starting to rot off the body.

536, The Dark Ages

So, if even what was called “the Great Mortality” doesn’t earn the title for worst year in history, what does? Well, what if we combined disease, famine, natural disasters, and climate change all into one year? The year 536: a year that probably wasn’t in your history textbooks.

It all started with a volcanic eruption of massive proportions, so massive, in fact, that there are no direct records of its explosion, only trace amounts of its ash stored in arctic glaciers and early-civilization silver.

The volcano erupted in Iceland and coated the planet in a cloud of ash. Since we don’t have any records of people surviving close enough to the volcano to give an account of the blast, let’s review a volcanic eruption we do know about.

In 1883, Krakatoa, a volcano in what is now Indonesia exploded with a force loud enough to burst the eardrums of sailors on a passing ship 40 miles away. This eruption altered weather for months changed atmospheric pressure around the world and ejected enough ash into the atmosphere to inspire the Scream painting by Edvard Munch in Europe—halfway around the other side of the world.

All we know about the Icelandic volcano of 536 is that it was even bigger and even more catastrophic. A mysterious and deadly fog then enveloped Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. This resulted in the lowest temperatures in these regions in 2600 years!

This literally kicked off what became known as the Dark Ages. True darkness covered the world, causing crops to fail, snow to fall in summer, drought, and even an early outbreak of the Bubonic plague.

“A most dread portent took place. For the sun gave forth its light without brightness… and it seemed exceedingly like the sun in eclipse, for the beams it shed were not clear.” —Byzantine historian Procopius

Scandinavians deposited hoards of gold in tribute, hoping to appease the gods and stave off the darkness. While Krakatoa may have inspired the Scream, this real-life event is thought to have inspired the entire idea of Ragnarok in Norse mythology. The Plague of Justinian would eventually wipe out upwards of 60% of the Mediterranean’s population and several states fell to civil unrest and disease. The Mongols are thought to have been driven west by these events and some scholars go as far as to say the establishment of Islam was a result of the power vacuums created in 536.

All of that, and the official title for this climactic event? The late Antiquity Little Ice Age. Which is, Believe It or Not!, the worst year in history.

Highsmith introduced Tom Ripley in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1955) as a young man making a meager living as a con artist. The novel also supplies him with a back story: orphaned at age five when his parents drowned, he was raised in Boston by his aunt Dottie, a cold, stingy woman who mocked him as a "sissy." As a teenager, he attempted unsuccessfully to run away from his aunt's home to New York City before finally moving there at age 20.

In The Talented Mr. Ripley, he is paid to go to Italy by Herbert Greenleaf, a shipbuilding magnate, to convince his son Dickie (a half-remembered acquaintance) to return to New York and join the family business. Ripley befriends the younger Greenleaf and falls in love with the rich young man's indulgent, carefree lifestyle he also becomes obsessed with Greenleaf himself. He eventually murders Greenleaf after the playboy tires of him and spurns his friendship. He then assumes Greenleaf's identity, forging the signatures on his monthly remittances from a trust fund. He rents an apartment in Italy and revels in the good life. He also assumes Greenleaf's style and mannerisms, imitating him so well that he essentially becomes him. However, the charade gets him in trouble whenever he is confronted by people who know both him and Greenleaf, particularly Greenleaf's suspicious friend, Freddie Miles, whom he eventually murders. Ripley ultimately forges Greenleaf's will, leaving himself the dead man's inheritance. The novel ends with Ripley, having narrowly evaded capture, sailing to Greece and rejoicing in his newfound wealth. However, the book's final passages hint that he will pay for his freedom with a lifetime of paranoia, as he wonders whether he is "going to see policemen waiting for him on every pier that he ever approached". [1]

In Ripley Under Ground (1970), set six years later, Ripley has settled down into a life of leisure in Belle Ombre, an estate on the outskirts of the fictional village of Villeperce-sur-Seine in France, which Highsmith locates "some forty miles south of Orly", [2] "some twelve miles" from Fontainebleau, [3] and "seven kilometres" from Moret. [4] He has added to his fortunes by marrying Héloïse Plisson, an heiress who has suspicions about how he makes his money, but prefers not to know. He avoids direct involvement in crime as much as possible in order to preserve his somewhat shady reputation, but he still finds himself involved in criminal enterprises, often aided by Reeves Minot, a small-time fence. Ripley's criminal exploits include a long-running art forgery scam (introduced in Ripley Under Ground and consistently mentioned in later books), an entanglement with the Mafia (in Ripley's Game), and several murders. In every novel, he comes perilously close to getting caught or killed, but ultimately escapes danger.

Personality Edit

Highsmith characterizes Ripley as a "suave, agreeable and utterly amoral" con artist and serial killer who always evades justice. Book magazine ranks Ripley at #60 on its list of the 100 Best Characters in Fiction since 1900. [5]

Ripley is epicurean and sophisticated, living a life of leisure in rural France. He spends most of his time gardening, painting, or studying languages. This is financed by a stolen inheritance, a small income from the Buckmaster Gallery, and his wife's allowance from her wealthy father. He is polite, friendly and cultured, and dislikes people who lack such qualities when the Pritchards appear in Ripley Under Water, their poor taste and manners immediately offend him.

Ripley has been critically acclaimed for being "both a likable character and a cold-blooded killer". [6] Sam Jordison of The Guardian wrote, "It is near impossible, I would say, not to root for Tom Ripley. Not to like him. Not, on some level, to want him to win. Patricia Highsmith does a fine job of ensuring he wheedles his way into our sympathies." [7]

In his review of Purple Noon, Rene Clement's 1960 adaptation of The Talented Mr. Ripley, film critic Roger Ebert described Ripley as "a committed hedonist, devoted to great comfort, understated taste and civilized interests. He has wonderful relationships with women, who never fully understand who or what he is. He has friendships -- real ones -- with many of his victims. His crimes are like moves in a chess game he understands that as much as he may like and respect his opponents, he must end with a checkmate." [8]

Sexuality Edit

While Highsmith never explicitly portrays Ripley as gay or bisexual, certain passages in the Ripley novels imply that he harbors some unacknowledged attraction towards men. In The Talented Mr. Ripley, he is obsessed with Dickie Greenleaf, and is jealous of Greenleaf's girlfriend Marge Sherwood to the point that he fantasizes about Greenleaf rejecting and hitting her. He is also afraid that others will think he is gay, and jokes that he wants to give up both men and women because he can't decide which he likes more. [9]

In Ripley Under Ground, he recalls "turning green" during his wedding, and going impotent with laughter while having sex with Heloise during their honeymoon. In The Boy Who Followed Ripley, he reflects that he and Heloise rarely have sex, and that frequent sexual demands on her part "really would have turned him off, maybe at once and permanently." [10] The Boy Who Followed Ripley, meanwhile, has been cited as portraying a homoerotic subtext between Ripley and the novel's supporting protagonist, Frank Pierson. For example, Frank sleeps in Ripley's bed without changing the sheets, and speaks of his happiness at being at Belle Ombre with "the words of a lover." [10]

Highsmith herself was ambivalent about the subject of Ripley's sexuality. "I don't think Ripley is gay," she said in a 1988 interview with Sight & Sound. "He appreciates good looks in other men, that's true. But he's married in later books. I'm not saying he's very strong in the sex department. But he makes it in bed with his wife." [11]

Psychopathy Edit

Ripley is portrayed as devoid of conscience in The Boy Who Followed Ripley, he admits that he has never been seriously troubled by guilt. Though he sometimes feels "regret" about his earliest murders – he considers the murder of Dickie Greenleaf "a youthful, dreadful mistake", and that of Freddie Miles "stupid" and "unnecessary" – he cannot remember the number of his victims. [10] He is not without redeeming qualities, however. He feels genuine affection (if not love) for several characters throughout the series, and has his own code of ethics in Ripley's Game, Highsmith writes that Ripley detests murder unless it is "absolutely necessary". [12] He has typically been regarded as "cultivated," a "dapper sociopath", and an "agreeable and urbane psychopath". [13]

In his abovementioned review of Purple Noon, Roger Ebert wrote: "Ripley is a criminal of intelligence and cunning who gets away with murder. He's charming and literate, and a monster. It's insidious, the way Highsmith seduces us into identifying with him and sharing his selfishness Ripley believes that getting his own way is worth whatever price anyone else might have to pay. We all have a little of that in us." [8]

In his 2001 book Malignant Self-Love: Narcissism Revisited, Sam Vaknin writes that Ripley (as portrayed in the 1999 film The Talented Mr. Ripley) meets five of the seven criteria for antisocial personality disorder, and displays narcissistic traits. [14]

Across the five books, Ripley commits homicide nine times, and indirectly causes an additional five deaths.

  • Dickie Greenleaf
  • Freddie Miles
  • (Peter Smith Kingsley in film version only)
  • Thomas Murchison
  • Bernard Tufts
  • Vito Marcangelo
  • Angelo Lippari
  • Fillipo Turoli
  • Alfiori
  • Ponti
  • Jonathan Trevanny
  • Salvatore Bianca
  • "the Italian type kidnapper"
  • David Pritchard
  • Janice Pritchard

Highsmith's first three Ripley novels have been adapted into films. The Talented Mr. Ripley was filmed as Purple Noon (French: Plein Soleil) in 1960, starring Alain Delon as Ripley, and under its original title in 1999, starring Matt Damon. Ripley Under Ground was adapted into a 2005 film, starring Barry Pepper. Ripley's Game was filmed in 1977 as The American Friend, starring Dennis Hopper, and under its original title in 2002, starring John Malkovich.

The Ripley novels have also been adapted for television and radio. The Talented Mr. Ripley was adapted for a January 1956 episode of the anthology television series Studio One, [15] and Jonathan Kent played Ripley in a 1982 episode of The South Bank Show titled "Patricia Highsmith: A Gift for Murder", dramatizing segments of Ripley Under Ground. [16] [17] In 2009, BBC Radio 4 adapted all five Ripley novels with Ian Hart as Ripley. [18]

Of the Ripley portrayals that Highsmith saw in her lifetime, she praised Delon's performance in Purple Noon as "excellent" [11] and described Jonathan Kent as "perfect". [17] She initially disliked Hopper's Ripley in The American Friend, but changed her mind after seeing the film a second time, feeling that he had captured the essence of the character. [19] [20]

In Joanna Murray Smith's 2014 play, Switzerland, Tom Ripley comes to life and visits Highsmith planning to kill her. In the 2014 Sydney Theatre Company premiere production, he was portrayed by Eamon Farren. [21]

In 2015, The Hollywood Reporter announced that a group of production companies were planning a television series based on the novels. [22] The following year, Deadline announced that the series will be written by Neil Cross, having been in development at Endemol Shine Studios for over a year. [23] In 2019, the show was ordered to series at Showtime, with actor Andrew Scott playing the lead role and writer-director Steven Zaillian replacing Cross. [24]

Ripley PC-808 - History

The Lake Ripley Management District (LRMD) was formed in 1990 under the authority of Chapter 33 of the Wisconsin Statutes. Its purpose is to help ensure the protection and effective management of Lake Ripley. The LRMD is a local, special-purpose unit of government that serves close to 2,000 property owners around the lake. LRMD boundaries closely follow those of the Oakland Sanitary District, and incorporate slightly less than one-half of the total watershed area. It is roughly bounded by USH 18 to the north, USH 12 to the south, Simonsen St. to the west, and County Rd. A to the east.

The LRMD engages in a variety of projects that aim to protect or enhance opportunities for public use and enjoyment of the lake. A seven-member board of directors, one full-time Lake Manager, and two part-time weed-harvesting operators are responsible for administering LRMD activities. The board includes five elected members owning property within the District (serving staggered, three-year terms), as well as appointed representatives from the Town of Oakland and Jefferson County. The Lake Manager is employed by the Board to carry out the activites of the LRMD.

Operational funding may be derived from a combination of local tax dollars, grant awards, private donations, and special assessments or charges. The LRMD is authorized to levy a maximum of 2.5 mills to finance projects that mainain and improve the quality of life on and around Lake Ripley. However, to date, the actual mill rate has remained at or below 0.5 mill. Since 1993, much of our budget was funded by state grants, including around $72,000 per year to implement the Priority Lake Project (which ended on 12/06). Although the Lake District represents about 7% of the land area in Oakland Township, it accounts for nearly 70% of the township's total assessed valuation. This fact highlights the lake's regional significance not only as a popular recreational destination, but also as a magnet for development and economic opportunity.
