County to offer scholarships

By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com

After a resolution passed unanimously at the Tipton County Legislature's monthly meeting Monday night, the county is officially in the scholarship business. The process began in December 2011 when the commissioners passed a resolution allowing the county to use

funds received from a PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) agreement with Unilever Manufacturing in Covington for the Tipton County Education and Workforce Initiative. Monday's resolution named a seven-person committee made up of educators and county officials that will provide direction and policies for the scholarship program. The West Tennessee Health-

care Foundation is the fiscal organization that will be responsible for distributing the funds to colleges and universities. County Executive Jeff Huffman said other counties have similar plans in place, but Tipton County's is unique. “I don't know of anybody else doing this,” Huffman said. “A lot of other counties have programs, but they don't

have industries actually putting money into them.” Huffman said he expects the money going into this year's scholarship fund to be between $50,000 and $100,000, and that students could receive approximately $600 for a year. “That's just a start,” he said. The scholarships are not need-based, Huffman said. Students interested in the

scholarship can contact guidance counselors for more information. In other matters: • Huffman read a proclamation naming April as Child Abuse Awareness Month. • The Tipton County Sheriff's Office report revealed that officers responded to 3,422 calls in March and 296 arrests. Other county agencies arrested 111 people during March.

EVENT

By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com It’s been 40 years and the wounds are still deep, so deep that the men who served in Vietnam are still reluctant to share their experiences. On Saturday night, though, the Celebration of Service and Sacrifice group will commemorate the ending of the war in Vietnam with a memorial service at the Veterans Museum in Covington. "This is to commemorate the ending of the war," said Randy "Mac" McKee, one of the event's organizers. "We invite everyone to come out and honor those who served in Vietnam and those who didn't come home." In January 1973, the Paris Peace Accords were signed, marking the end of U.S. involvement in SEE MEMORIAL, PAGE A3

All signs are pointing to success, Atoka officials have said about the town's first barbecue festival. The event took place on April 5-6 in Nancy Lane Park, a two-day festival that celebrated the fine art of smoking swine. "Everyone seemed to have a good time, despite the mud," said Town Administrator Brian Koral. It was muddy, but a little mud never stopped anyone from participating in a contest devoted to cooking pork. "It was just a fantastic success: people enjoyed themselves, there was a great turnout, a lot of positive feedback from the cooking teams and, overall, a great event." On Friday night, rocker Tori Tollison and band Section 8 performed on stage at the inaugural festival.

The occupants of the vehicle – Triston Byron Siggers and Eric Rashun Williamson, both of Memphis – were arrested and charged with the burglaries. Approximately $16,000 in stolen property was recovered. Siggers later admitted to his role in the burglaries. He is free on a $10,000 bond. Williamson is free on a $50,000 bond They are due in court on May 14. Last Thursday, four suspected burglars were caught in the act by the sheriff's office's second in command. Though off-duty at the time, Chief Billy Daugherty saw a suspicious vehicle at one of his neighbors' homes. Just like the Siggers and Williamson apprehension, the Pontiac Parisienne spotted on Brighton-Clopton Road was wanted in connection with a recent rash of burglaries. "Daugherty lives in Brighton and knew the vehicle didn't belong at the residence," Sheriff Pancho Chumley said. "It was a great piece of police work to catch these guys breaking into the home and making a quick capture."

TUESDAY

Four males in the vehicle – identified as Deangelo Jerome Brown of Brighton and Louis Curtis Taper III, Marquez Dwayne Russell and a juvenile from Millington – had stolen property in their possession. All four were arrested and three admitted to throwing objects through windows and entering residences. They've been charged in connection with burglaries on Brighton-Clopton Road, Royal Oaks Drive and Glen Springs Road. Other similar burglaries are currently under investigation, the department said.

FLASHBACK

GUEST OPINION

The call of Wyoming Some two years ago I moved to Wyoming, and many of my friends and acquaintances in Tennessee have asked “why?” Though born and raised in Texas, starting with my father, my ancestry goes back five generations in Tennessee. Debbie and I raised our children in Tennessee. Our son and all seven of our grandchildren were born in Tennessee. Why at age 50 would I leave all of that to move over 1400 miles to the west? I heard all kinds of rumors and we got a kick out of a couple of them, but frankly moving west was a dream I had since the 1970s. We originally thought it would be Colorado, but I was in Denver in December 2008 on a job and took a long drive through Wyoming. It hit me—if I ever move west it had to be Wyoming. I never saw so much wildlife and wide open spaces. Mule and white tail deer, big horn sheep, elk, bald eagles, porcupines, trout-filled streams, antelope. It was J IM HARDIN a sportsman paradise and on top of it all the folks were downright friendly. They loved their freedom and were very suspicious of big government. They were debating eliminating the need to require a carry permit (it was eliminated in 2011) citing the Second Amendment as the only permit a free American needed. At the time I was Director of Operations for the family business based in Indiana overseeing the installation of energy efficient lighting across the U.S. and Mexico. I had recently returned from Iraq, all of our children were grown and I had the “Manifest Destiny” bug calling me to go west. Problem was, good paying jobs in Wyoming were far and few between. At 576,000, the entire state population is less than half of that of the Memphis Metro Area which exceeds 1.2 million. I decided it was probably not meant to be and in January 2009 went to work for the Delfield Company in Covington to get off the road and stay home more. In 2010, I was asked if I might consider running for the State House seat held by Jimmy Naifeh. Without going into the details, as most of you know, I ran. While I was running for the office, I received a call from head hunter in September 2010 to see if I was interested in a couple of positions he was recruiting for in Memphis. I’m not sure how he got my name, but I decided I was not interested in commuting to Memphis, but I told him if he ever had anything in Wyoming to let me know. I said that somewhat tongue-in-cheek, we both laughed, and then I continued on to campaign while working my day job at Delfield. Well, Election Day came, I won Tipton County, but lost the race by 2% when the Haywood County vote came in. I went back to work the next morning with no thought of moving to Wyoming, but within two weeks a job opportunity presented itself to me. The VA Hospital in Sheridan, Wyoming needed a Human Resources Officer for the facility and eight clinics throughout the state. I applied, was invited to interview and then offered the job, all between November 15, 2010 and January 30, 2011. I was in Wyoming by February 28 where Debbie and I have made a home in the mountain community of Story, battled my cancer last year, and have taken to the culture and folks of Wyoming. It’s been amusing to hear all the rumors about why we left. I heard some folks said I was running away from political defeat. Others said there was a conspiracy where Jimmy Naifeh used his influence with someone in the Federal government to get me a lucrative government post so I would leave and not be here to face him in 2012. I even heard there was a rumor that I left my wife and fled with another woman to the west—Debbie actually came to Wyoming with me. I guess I missed the mid-life crisis thing. Anyway, we love Tennessee and miss our family and friends, but we have new friends here and a level of freedom rarely found elsewhere in the country. ATVs are street legal, hunting is almost a requirement with a quota of 10 or more large game each year. Everyone packs so no one dares try anything, but people don’t live in fear. Wyoming is last among all states in welfare and food stamps per capita. Like Tennessee, there is no income tax, but the sales tax is only 6% and exempts food. My call to move west began long before any election. A door opened, and I freely entered. We visit Tennessee frequently and will always consider it home, but for now my heart is in Wyoming. That could change, but the call of Wyoming is strong.

5.25% to a flat 5 percent rate, saving consumers across the state approximately $25 million; House Bill 1184 – Institutes a sales tax holiday program for small-businesses statewide; House Bill 192 – Raises the Hall tax exemption levels for senior citizens from $16,200 to $26,200 for single filers and from $27,000 to $37,000 for joint filers; House Bill 64 – Exempts Tennessee businesses from paying a portion of their annual excise tax, allowing businesses to use that money for expansion or other necessary costs; In total, these bills, if passed by the legislature,

toxic investment moves, too. To illustrate: Many people chase after “hot” stocks after hearing about them from friends or relatives, or seeing them touted by so-called experts in the media. But by the time these people acquire the hot stocks, the stocks may already have cooled off. Furthermore, these stocks may not have been appropriate for these investors in the first place. Another potentially “toxic” investment move is to try to time the market — that is, try to buy investments when prices are low and sell when they’re high. In theory, this is a good way to invest; in practice, it’s almost impossible to predict market highs and lows Instead, consider buying quality investments and holding them for the long term, or at least until your needs change. By following these Earth Dayrelated suggestions, you can help yourself make progress toward a healthier — and possibly more productive — investment environment. And that’s worth celebrating more than once a year.

Because of this fact, critics argue, it is simply outdated and in need of an overhaul. In addition, Tennessee is currently one of only two states that adjudicate workers’ compensation claims in the trial courts. As a result, Tennessee’s medical costs related to workers’ compensation are some of the highest in the nation. The legislation is scheduled for debate by the full House of Representatives on April 11.

James is a native of Caruthersville, Missouri and graduated with a sculpture degree from Murray State University in Kentucky. As an artist, James is inspired by the world around her, and works in several mediums and styles. As a painter, James

was initially influenced by Eve Arnold's photographic journal "All in a Day's Work" which portrays the daily toil and passion of people around the world as they work for a living. She decided to bring a contemporary spin on this influence and capture local artisans and scenery from Oak Ridge, Tennessee. While James lived there, she learned the discipline of Chinese Brushwork from EunSook Kim and combined her love of illustration with the ancient art. James has additionally been influenced by the artisans in downtown Paducah, Kentucky and the National Quilt museum, which can be seen in the stitching detail of her quilted animal series. She continues her whimsical quilted series, now inspired by the beauty and culture of the Appalachian Mountains.

James enjoys portraiture, illustration, photography, murals and original works. Her creative versatility ranges from

realism to comical illustration, which keeps her body of works fresh and unexpected.

Let us help you celebrate life’s most special moments!

CHS FFA wins at convention By JERRY JOHNSON CHS FFA The Covington FFA was triumphant at the 85th State FFA Convention which was held March 24-March 27 in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The chapter left from Covington High School on Saturday the 23rd. Sunday The group went to Clingman's Dome, which is one of the highest points in the Appalachian Mountains, enjoyed some leisure time in Pigeon Forge, and attended the Lumberjack Feud dinner and show that evening. Monday The convention began in earnest. The chapter received the National Gold Chapter Award, the State Superior Chapter Award, and the Platinum PLOW Award for our hard work throughout the year. Jason Joy was selected as the 2013 Tennessee Star in Agriscience, which is one of the highest awards that the Tennessee FFA Association can bestow upon its members. The chapter had two members competing in the Tennessee Agriscience fair, which is a growing aspect of the organization. Kayla Fisher finished first in the state in her science project, which showcased Social Systems in Agriculture. Kayla will go on to represent the Tennessee FFA at Nationals this Fall in Louisville. Jason Joy finished second in the state in his

science project, which highlighted Plant Systems in Agriculture. Tuesday This year, the chapter outshone itself with 10 different state winners in proficiencies. This is the most this chapter has ever earned and we were the most recognized in the state for this year. The winners were: Rob Cothran in Agriculture Processing; Skylar Davis in Fiber and Oil Crop Production; Sean Donaldson in Diversified Crop Production; Cody Smith in Outdoor Recreation; Greg Berford in Swine Production; Eric Cousar in Grain Production; Rebecca Wauford in Home and Community Development; Hunter Call in Turfgrass Management; Troy Bushley in Agriculture Mechanics; and Jeffrey Sartain in Wildlife Management and Production. These ten will represent both the Covington FFA and the Tennessee FFA this fall in the National Proficiencies. Tuesday night, two members of the Covington FFA received scholarships from the Tennessee FFA Foundation. Jeffrey Sartain was

awarded the Ted Turner Scholarship, and Aerin Langlois was bestowed the Henry Williams Memorial Scholarship. Wednesday The following six students from the Covington chapter received their State FFA Degree: Jason Joy; Jeffrey Sartain; Katie Brassell; Dezie Gude; Rebecca Wauford; and Aerin Langlois. Greg Berford represented the chapter as a state officer candidate, and we are very proud of the hard work that he put into this endeavor. As the school year begins to wind down, the chapter would like to thank: the Covington FFA Alumni for their hard work and support; the faculty and staff at Covington High School for their continued support; and everyone in our community for helping these members "GROW" into the best young men and women possible. The chapter looks forward to ending the end on a high note with several competitions left before school lets out.

according to your income. I think most members pay a dollar each day they attend. You can spent the day there if you like to play dominoes, cards of all kinds. They take day trips to different places. Some people like to spend the day at the Center. Come and join us and make some new friends. One thing I learned when I was a Gril Scout Leader many years ago is: Make new friends, but keep the old. one is silver and the other is gold. We have been doing yard work this week. We both

enjoy being outside in the nice Sun Shine. We just dug up three small cedar trees that came up in my flower beds and planted them over along the fence line. Speaking of fence line.....the cows next door to us....saw us out at the fence line and came running over for us to give them some apples. We talked to them and rubbed their heads and told them "we have no more apples". They stood there for a few minutes and then went back to eating grass in the pasture. We are waiting for our

back yard to dry out.....we need about two dump truck loads of dirt to fill in the ravines in our back yard. Today, we are going to drag all the flowers out of our basement and put them out on the deck and on the front entrance of our home. Most of all the flowers lived, but did not grow very well. Some pots have new petunas that have come up volunteer in their pots from last year. We think that all the frost has gone for the winter!!!! Love and prayers.

made our weekly trip to see the baby chicks at the new farm store on the highway. They won't be there much longer though. The ducks were already gone! Liz, Lyla, and I drove to Memphis to the Spring Market at the Agricenter on Friday, and then Courtney and I went back on Sunday. Lots of fun with the girls! Also Friday night was Dinner and Movie Night and seven

many others, and all our servicemen and women. Happy birthday this week goes to Denise Cartwright on April 8th, to Sherri Kidd on the 9th, to Elizabeth Harrell on the 11th, and to Bonita Rogers and Corey Cartwright on the 12th. Also to Terri Barber on the 9th and to Gary Steele and Skip Baskin on April 11th! Elizabeth is getting a Lemon Cream cake for her

That family is in my prayers also. This week's Farmer's Almanac Quote:  "Plow deep while sluggards sleep and you will have corn to sell or keep" - Benjamin Franklin.

It's a very warm Monday night. Highs in the 70's today, as well as tomorrow, then storms (squall line) Wednesday and back in the 54's for a few days. This week's Farm Report: We did a little more spraying while the wind was down this morning then we planted corn. We’re working on our second farm now, almost ready for the third. Prayers for rain this year! I had a Tennessee Area of Conservation Districts Directors' meeting in Jackson last Wednesday. Elizabeth and Lyla took me, and then ate and rode around downtown while I had the meeting. Afterwards, we all went to see my dad, Kenneth Weir. He was doing fine and I think he knew me, but he called Lyla his granddaughter, so that was great! Lastly, we shopped and got back to town just in time for church. Elizabeth and Lyla ate Chinese with us afterward. Good day! On Thursday, there was a good little rain. James had a dentist appointment and I got a perm from Courtney Gurley. Glad she's in Covington now! James and I also

going because they want a place to call home someday themselves! Ha! Ha! Hey, ME TOO!!! I know there’s gona come a day when I’m gona need our services that we provide out here and I be dad-gum if I want to go to Memphis!!! I can’t afford down there! Their prices are outrageous!

Tipton County and The Civil War By Russell B. Bailey Tipton County Historian Union soldiers and marines were all over Tipton County during mid-March and April 1863. The Mississippi Marine Brigade was organized at St. Louis under the command of Brigadier General Alfred W. Ellet. His command consisted of six companies of infantry, 527 men; four companies of cavalry, 368 men, one battery of artillery, six guns and 140 men plus 200 recruits for a total of 1,235 men. The Brigade traveled down the Mississippi River to join the forces of General U. S. Grant in his operations to capture Vicksburg. The Marines left St. Louis March 13th with their armada consisting of the river steamers’ Autocrat, Adams, Baltic, Diana, and Fairchild, the hospital ship Woodford, and ram Lancaster. A memoir noted: “The fleet on its downward trip touched at New Madrid, and again at Fort Randolph, where the cavalry was sent off on a scout, and the infantry turned out

for drill.” The force landed at Memphis March 18th. The night attack and slaughter of the 6th Illinois Cavalry near Belmont March 29, 1863 by Colonel R. V. Richardson and the Tennessee Partisans infuriated Union commanders at Memphis. Orders were issued directing a large number of troops from Jackson, Bolivar, Germantown, Lagrange and Fort Pillow and to converge on Tipton County and destroy Richardson’s cavalry once and for all. In addition to 400 Federals of the 6th and 7th Illinois ordered from Fayette County on the 28th, Colonel Benjamin Grierson led 550 men to the Belmont, Concordia (Braden) and Mason Depot area on the 30th. His troops skirmished with Partisans near Mason destroying a quantity of Confederate army clothing. Grierson’s men encamped at Lewis P. Williamson’s plantation on the night of the 30th and Montague’s on the 31st where they destroyed a Confederate sad-

dle shop before returning to Lagrange. Grierson claimed that his brigade killed 20 Rebels, wounded 40-50 and captured about 50; his own loss was reported at 52. With Col. Richardson wounded, command of the Partisans fell to Lt. Colonel John U. Green of Covington. Learning of the overwhelming force being sent against him, Green disbanded the Regiment ordering his captains to hide their companies in the Beaver Creek bottoms. During April 2-6, Lieutenant Colonel T. P. Herrick with the 7th Kansas Cavalry, including Private William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody of Wild West fame, searched for Richardson’s rebels. The “jayhawkers” “spent two days in the Beaver swamps, “thoroughly scouring the whole country from the head of East Beaver, 5 miles above Mason’s Station, around to Portersville...” where they captured 500 bushels of corn in gunnysacks from Richardson’s men. Herrick reported the rebels were constantly alert-

ed of the Federal approach by citizens and that he captured 20 horses, 9 prisoners and killed a rebel lieutenant. The Kansans were commented on by a Memphis correspondent for the New York Herald: “Reports daily reach us of outrages by our soldiers all along the line of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. The Seventh Kansas regiment… are particularly mentioned as the perpetrators of outrages for which their officers ought to be dismissed from the service. Fences are pulled down and burned,' hogs, cattle, and fowls killed, horses and mules stolen, houses burned and pillaged and rapine are their common every day pursuits. Even ladies have had their clothes on their persons thrown over their heads on the pretext that they had money on their persons which they would not give up.” “Union soldiers in Tipton County” Continued next week

Hello my friends. Spring has finally sprung!! Today, Ruby Kate and I spent the day at home. We picked up sticks that had fallen over the winter months and rocked on the front porch. She walked barefoot in the clover, uncertain at first but with enthusiasm as she realized it was so very soft. I chased her, and every time I saw her, I put an acorn in her mouth. We had a very uncomplicated day. If today could preclude several weeks of the same weather, I think I could get over the blahs and get my yard in shape. It is still very muddy, but it's hard to complain when we have been in the deficit on rainfall over the past few years. Neal, Ryan, and Josh helped move the furniture from Ms. Liz's house this weekend. We are happy to announce that Heather Motes and her children are going to be renting Neal's homeplace. It needs some TLC and I do believe she can give the old home the charm it needs. Brenna and I went to the Ruffin last Saturday to see “You Can't Take It With You.” We had a great time. The play was wonderful.

There is another showing this weekend. I highly suggest getting out and seeing some of our local talent. You'll have a blast. Last week our neighbor's home was broken into. Thankfully Billy Daugherty was passing by when he saw an unfamiliar vehicle in our drive. He called for backup and they apprehended the suspects who admitted to their crime. Thank goodness for the connection a small community brings for us. Everyone needs to be aware of the vehicles coming and going in your neighborhood, and if it looks fishy, please call the police. It is better to be on the safe side than to have something happen. Please remember Tony Johnston, Sam Stitt, and Joy Hill who all have been very sick with serious illnesses. Our prayers are with all of you. Congratulations to expecting parents and grandparents of Chris and Morgan Stitt Davanzo, who are expecting their next child. Also to Jordon and Hannah Proffitt Cooper who are expecting their next child this fall. We are expecting our 9th in 3 weeks!! Grandchild

that is! Whew!! No one get crazy over that comment. The bridge would be looking really good, and my name isn't Sarah!! Happy Birthday to: Callie Rickard, Jenifer Stevens, Hunter Scott, Cendi Ramsey, Sam Stitt, Barbara David, Susan Carter, Camille Ballard, Lavada Wheatley, Kay Scott, Mike Durham, Sherri Kidd, Kathy Forrester, Krystle Eledge, Kaylani Longshore, Dr. Scott Craig, Connor Cullum, and my

son-in-law Paul Stettnisch. We wish all of you a very happy day! I hope everyone has an absolutely wonderful week! Love to all!!! Debe

Cougars sweep two from Trojans By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com The baseball rivalry between Munford and Millington doesn't have a catchy name like the M and M Bowl, the Cougar-Trojan football's game moniker. It does, however, like the football game, feature players on both teams who know each other well. Last fall the Cougar football team on a nail biter in the closing seconds. The two-game baseball series played last Friday and Saturay had no such drama. Munford won game one Friday at home in Munford, 12-2, before traveling south to Millington and taking game two, 10-1. The Cougars' offense, which produced 24 hits (12 in each game), was the story, along with some efficient pitching. In game one, Munford (11-9) scored five runs in each of the first two innings to take control. Lead-off man Walker Bouler led the way, finishing 3 for 4. Kyle Hindman had two hits and two RBIs for Munford and Jase Hutchison drove in one and finished 2 for 4.

Brandon Young, Blake Lawrence, Tommy Smith, J.C. Trobaugh and Josh Hibbard each drove in a riun for Munford. Ty Gillespie started on the mound and went three innings for the win. He struck out five and allowed just two walks, three hits and one run. Munford led game two 5-0 before scoring three runs in the sixth inning and two more in the seventh to put the game out of reach. Bouler once again led the way offensively, going 2 for 4 with two doubles and two RBIs. Kyle Hindman had a big night as well, finishing 3 for 3 with an RBI. Lawrence and Trobaugh each doubled and Hunter Barber was 2 for 3 with an RBI. Young singled home a run. Darian Houston allowed just three hits and struck out five over five innings to earn the win. Munford returns to action today at Cordova and Friday at Christian Brothers. The Cougars (0-4 District in 13-AA) will be looking for their first district win Monday at Brighton. The Cougars host the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Lady Chargers win four in S’haven By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com

ton each had a pair of hits. Bartlett was a 4-0 shut out victim on Friday. Clifton remained perfect at 5-0, hurling a three-hitter. She added a single and a homer for good measure. Treasury Poindexter kicked in a double and Shelby Bolding and Ryleigh Deverell added a hit a piece. Game three saw a 4-0 win over Grenada (Miss.) Gabby Glenn tossed a two-hitter that featured nine strikeouts. Poindexter was the leading hitter with three singles and an RBI. Tierra Williams had a pair of singles. Covington closed out play with a 10-0 thumping of Hernando

The Covington Lady Chargers (13-2, 2-1) continued their winning ways last week, winning four of four and their pool at the Hunter Morris Tournament in Southaven. CHS (13-2 overall, 2-1 district) gave up their only two runs of the event in the opener versus Kossuth (Miss.), posting an 8-2 win behind the pitching of Gabby Glenn (8-2). She allowed four hits and struck out seven in addition to leading the offense with two doubles, a triple and 4 RBIs. Neely Glenn and Hannah Clif-

(Miss.). Gabby Glenn was the winner again, giving up only three hits with six strikeouts. Poindexter and Bolding each had a pair of singles and an RBI to pace the offense.

Cards win a pair over North Side By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Brighton needed a district win Monday night at home against Jackson North Side. And they got in dramatic fashion. Colton Hathcock drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the seventh to plate Ladarius Williams and give Brighton a 6-5 District 13-AAA win, the Cardinals' first of the season. The Cardinals fell behind early when North Side scored four times in the top of the first inning. But Brighton rallied for two runs in bottom of the inning scored twice each in the third and seventh innings to pull out the win. Nathan Newman recovered from a rough first inning to go the distance and earn the win. He struck out seven, walked just one and allowed eight hits and one earned run. Bentley Jones hit a tworun homer for Brighton in the bottom of the first inning and finished 2 for 4. Newman had a single and two RBIs and Williams drove in a run. There was no drama in game two against North Side on Tuesday in Jackson as Brighton rolled to a 13-2 win in five innings. Caleb Armour was 2 for 4 with two RBIs and Hathcock singled twice and drove in two. Armour allowed just one hit over five innings

and struck out nine to earn the win. Brighton (11-11 overall, 2-2 district) returns to action today at home against Ripley and tomorrow at Covington.

Covington, Ripley split two district games By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com Covington and Ripley. Always a spirited match-up no matter the sport. Monday and Tuesday’s baseball games can be added to the list. The Tigers held home turf on Monday night with a 2-1 win over CHS. Covington scored in the first inning to take a 1-0 lead that starter Tommy Beasley (3-2) made hold up until the bottom of the fourth when the Tigers scored a pair of runs that were aided by miscues in they field. Beasley went six innings, surrendering six hits and striking out eight. Tuesday’s contest, won by Covington 4-1, was totally different. The Tigers loaded the bases without a hit in the top of the third, but came away empty as Jake Durham struck out the last two

batters to end the inning. Covington bats came alive in the bottom of the inning. Tommy Beasley provided the first Charger run with an RBI single to right and Bradyn McClain doubled off the fence in left to score two and the Chargers went to the fouth up 3-0. Montel Williams added a fourth run, doubling into the left field gap to score Carlos Williams in the top of the fourth inning. The Tigers made noise in the top of the seventh, loading the bases with one out on a double, an infield hit and a walk. A sharp grounder up the middle scored the runner from third getting an out on a force at second. Inexplicably, the runner who had been on second tried to score and was thrown out at the plate by Kirk Winberry to end the game. Durham (3-3) got the complete game win posting 10 strikeouts while allowing five hits and two walks.

The Chargers had a full week of baseball last week, opening the District 13-AA season with a home and home against Obion County April 1-2 and finishing up with the USA Classic in Millington last Wednesday through Saturday. Covington (13-7 overall, 2-1 District 13-AA) scored 22 unanswered runs against the Obion County Rebels, winning 14-0 at Obion and 8-0 at Chandler field. Brad Walker got the win at Obion on Monday, going five innings and allowing four hits with nine strikeouts and a walk. Carlos Williams scored four runs and had a pair of stolen bases and Tommy Beasley had a pair of doubles that plated 4 RBIs. It was more of the same on Tuesday as Bradyn McClain (1-2) recorded his first win of the season with a two-hit shutout. He struck out six and walked one in six innings.

Williams reached base four times without benefit of a hit, stealing three bases and scoring three runs in the 8-0 win. Clayton Click added a double and an RBI with a run scored and Dalton Carlton tripled and scored twice. The USA Classic pitted CHS against a who’s who of local and visiting talent. The Chargers opened with a 5-2 loss CBC St. Louis, a team picked to win the Missouri state championship in their division this year. Beasley (3-1) took his first loss of the season. He surrendered only six hits but was undone by eight errors in the field by his teammates. Covington had three hits in the contest. The CHS ship returned to course on Thursday with a 13-3 win over the three-time defending Indiana state champion Indiana Catholic squad. Jake Durham (2-3) got

the win with a five-inning outing in which he allowed two hits and three earned runs with 5 Ks and a pair of walks. Carlos Williams scored three times and Montel Williams twice. Bradyn McClain had three RBIs and Tommy Beasley two. The MUS Owls, last year’s Tennessee state champion in Division 2, was the next victim. John Bowers (1-0) was the winner in six innings. He gave up four hits and struck out five with five walks. The Chargers scored five runs on five hits. Walker had 2 RBIs and Carlos Williams and Tommy Beasley each added one RBI. Covington closed out a 3-1, ninth-place finish in the tournament with a 12-11 win over Briarcrest. It was an ugly game that featured 24 hits and seven errors combined from the two teams. CHS scored four times in the bottom of the

Lady Cards rout North Side By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Brighton got its district schedule off to a good start earlier this week, defeating Dyer County 5-0 in Newbern on Monday and beating Jackson North Side at home in a doubleheader on Tuesday, 21-0 and 15-0. The Lady Cardinals (10-1 overall, 3-0 district) had 10 hits against Dyer County and score all of five of their runs in the top of the sixth inning. Ali Christmas was 3 for 3 with an RBI. Laura Judy tripled and Hadley Wilkins each singled. Becky Judy went the distance in the circle, scattering seven hits and striking out two. Seeley Lane pitched a four-inning perfect game in the game one win over North Side. She struck out nine. Laura Judy paced the offense with three hits and Wilkins drove in four.

Brighton returns to district action today at home against Hardin County before playing in the Covington tournament over the weekend.

Blessed and highly-favored Male chorus to mark 50th anniversary By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com The first Sunday of every month, members of the Christian Aide Male Chorus can be found sharing their soulful sound in a way only they can. It's a tradition that's lasted half a century, a golden anniversary that will be celebrated on April 21. "We go from church to church, we've been doing that for 50 years," said 93-year-old Rudolph Boykin, one of the group's founding members. "It's been a long time." The chorus's organization dates back to the Civil Rights Era. The group formed after a December 3, 1963 meeting at Salem Missionary Baptist Church in Mason, a meeting that resulted from a conversation between the late Curtis Grant of Salem and Marion Terry of St. John M.B. Church. Grant, Terry and the others attending the meeting believed a

man should take his rightful place in the church and a male chorus was formed. "The pastor at (Salem) church at that time was Rev. T.J. West and he named it the Christian Aide Male Chorus," Boykin said. "We are to help the sick ... somebody's home destroyed by fire ... that kind of thing. We help them out." Two months later, the group began performing, first at Salem, and it hasn't stopped since. "We were supposed to have been there in January, but because of the snow weather we had to have the next one in February. That was in 1963, and that was the only time we've missed a program. We've been late one hour, but that's the only time we've ever missed." Boykin said during the time in which the group was first organized, every church had a male chorus and the unified chorus was made up of those men. "Those men are deacons and ushers and so on," he said. In 50 years there have been three presidents of the group – Thomas Mason, Henderson Smith and Boykin – and only two original members besides Boykin are left. "It's me, Aaron Adams and Bro.

Jessie Hill Sr. We are the oldest right now. Bro. Joseph Smith was the oldest; he passed away and he was 98 or 99." Recently, the group lost its vice president, Jessie Hill Jr., who passed away on Jan. 30. His loss is still being felt. Boykin is no longer able to sing with the group, but he attends as many musicals as he can. "If I'm able to, I'll be there. My son and my stepson always get me there, if my health allows me there." The monthly musicals, which begin at 6 p.m., take place at one of seven M.B. churches: Salem, Cedar Grove, King's Hill, Greater St. John, St. Matthew's, Plummer Grove and Antioch. The programs include selections from the male chorus in addition to prayers, scripture readings, remarks from the home church's pastor and solos from others in attendance. On Sunday, April 21, the group will celebrate its golden anniversary with a program at Salem M.B. Church, where the musicals began so long ago, at 6 p.m. The next scheduled musical will be held at Greater St. John on Shelton Street in Covington at 6 p.m. on May 5. ◄ At left, the audience enjoys the musical. Bottom right, Mr. and Mrs. Dyson sing a solo while the chorus watches on. Bottom left, Aaron Adams belts out the lyrics to "Sending Up My Timber."

COMMENTARY

John 2:1-6 The wedding at Cana

proceed with proper credit and honor. I think that Mary was looking at the physical aspect of Jesus, John mentions the third day, He was intelligent, quick witted which must be the third day after and worked well under pressure; Nathanael was called to follow or, was she thinking that He had Jesus. Nathanael was a resident the power to ease the situation of Cana, and the small supernaturally.

This statement and the entertainment should not shows many things, one, Mary By RALPH KELLEY The Church at Shiloh

did not understand the words of Jesus either as a rebuke or a refusal to her request. Two, Mary must have anticipated that the command of Jesus might appear unreasonable to the servants. And three, under normal circumstances, servants might not want to carry out orders from a guest. Apparently, Mary was in a position to instruct the servants, and this hints to a personal connection with the family of the bridegroom, and this might tell us that it was Mary, not Nathanael that had been the source of the invitation for Jesus and His disciples to the wedding. Now a lesson is here for all of us. When Mary told the servants to do whatever Jesus commanded, Mary took her proper place, no longer making suggestions, but leaving everything in His hands. There were six large stone waterpots, twenty or thirty gallons each, in a specific place and to be used for a specific task. These waterpots were used for the Jewish custom of purification. Mark 7:3-4 tells us, “For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands in a special way, holding the tradition of the elders. When they come from the marketplace, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other things which they have received and hold, like the washing of cups, pitchers, copper vessels, and couches“. This probably explains why there were six large stone waterpots.

What are you looking for? By RICK HUFFMAN Gilt Edge Church of Christ The story is told of a young soldier who would go around picking up certain objects and exclaiming, “That’s not it!” While pulling KP and peeling potatoes, he would pick up a potato, look at it carefully, say, “That’s not it!", lay it aside, pick up another and make the same statement. While on cleanup patrol, he would pick up a piece of litter from the ground, examine it, and conclude, “That’s not it!” So it was wherever he went and whatever he encountered, he would pick it up, study it and lay it aside again saying, “That’s not it!” It was not long until the commanding officer (CO) upon observing his peculiar behavior concluded the young man was crazy. The CO had his military discharge prepared. He handed it to the soldier and the solider exclaimed, “That’s it!” That young man knew all along what he was looking for- a way out of

the service. Contrary to that young man, many of us do not have a clue what we are looking for. I sometimes half- jokingly, half- seriously tell people I still do not know what I want to do when I grow up (I’m 59). Many of us are like Solomon who looked for happiness, who looked for fulfillment in life, who looked for the meaning and the purpose of life. Ec 1:2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. Ec 1:14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit. Ec 2:11 Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun. Ec 2:15 Then said I in my heart, As it happeneth to the fool, so it happeneth even to me; and why was I then more wise? Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity. Ec 5:10 He that loveth silver shall

not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity. Ec 6:12 For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun? Ec 11:8 But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity. Ec 12:8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity. Solomon began his book (Ec 1:2) and ended his book (Ec 12:8) with the same observation, “All is vanity”. Vanity is futility, emptiness, uselessness and pointlessness. Although Solomon had it all, saw it all and done it all, his life was empty. Solomon wisely concluded, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every

secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” (Ec 12:13-14) “Duty” is italicized meaning it was added by the translators but not in the original text. I think it is better translated if not included. It would then read, “Fear God and keep his commandments for this is the whole of man.” Man cannot be ”whole” even if he is the richest man on earth or the wisest (as was Solomon) if he does not fear God and keep his commandments. We will always be incomplete and have an unexplainable void in our life if our life is not Christ centered and God directed. I would urge you to look for God where you can find true satisfaction and true peace for He is near. Paul told the Athenians who were trying to find purpose through their idol gods ”that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us.” (Acts 17:27)

But if the first half of the season, that has included games against some of the area’s best teams, is any indicator, the Cougars will do just fine. Last Thursday, Munford hosted Ridgeway and won 2-0 behind two goals from Lorris Densow. Zack Kurtzman and Jaylen Hill picked up the

assists. The following day Munford hosted Evangelical Christian School, the defending DII-A state champs. Munford lost 1-0, but head coach Kyle Selby likes the way his team is headed. “We are getting good play from many different players,” Selby said. “We are getting the opportunities to finish, but have to improve finishing and our speed of play.
