n 1993, the Tipton County Veterans Council began studying the feasibility of constructing a Veterans Memorial facility to display historical artifacts and to commemorate those who served and who are now serving in our country’s Armed Forces. Concurrently, the city of Covington acquired an additional 20-acre area expanding Cobb-Parr Memorial Park. With this additional land, the city of Covington’s Park and Recreation Department created the first designated nature preserve and greenway system in Tipton County. On this 20-acre site, the Park and Recreation Department planned to develop a plant and wildlife sanctuary, an outdoor classroom for all citizens to enjoy, and an indoor nature center to support the learning of natural sciences. Since the Veterans Council and the Covington Parks and Recreation Department were both striving to enrich the quality of life for the citizens of Tipton County, the two organizations combined efforts, ideas and resources with the Board of Mayor and Aldermen of the city of Covington, the Tipton County Legislature, and the state of Tennessee to construct the Tipton County Museum, Veterans Memorial & Nature Center. The facility opened its doors to the public on November 11, 1998. One of the first facilities in the country to bring together military history, environmental education and historical preservation, the Tipton County Museum is truly unique. This million-dollar facility is located in the largest urban park in Tipton County and includes a 20-acre wildlife sanctuary and nature preserve, a half-mile nature trail through a woodland forest, and a wetland study area. The museum houses changing historical exhibits featuring artifacts from Tipton County’s rich heritage and a nature center

depicting the unique ecosystem of Tipton County and West Tennessee. The well-manicured grounds include a beautiful garden, a picnic area and a rather large pond stocked with fish, frogs and turtles. Over a 14-year period, the changing exhibits at the Tipton County Museum have included: • World War II: A Closer Look • Vietnam • Preserving Our Stories: 150 Years of the Tennessee Historical Society (traveling exhibit from the Tennessee State Museum) • The Civil War: A Nation Divided • Korea: A Hot Spot In the Cold War (including a traveling exhibit from the Tennessee State Museum) • World War II: The Pacific Theater • World War II: The European Theater and the American Home Front • Bagels and Barbecue: The Jewish Experience in Tennessee (traveling exhibit from the Tennessee State Museum) • From the American Revolution to the Middle East Crisis: A Military Collection • Hoofbeats in the Heartland: Civil War Cavalry in Tennessee (traveling exhibit from the Tennessee State Museum) • A Military Salute • Common People in Uncommon Times: The Civil War Experience in Tennessee (traveling exhibit from the Tennessee State Museum) www.covington-tiptoncochamber.com

These changing historical exhibits have interpreted the legacy of those Tipton County citizens who have served and who are now serving in our country’s Armed Forces. The patriotic and informative displays have been drawn from hundreds of artifacts donated by veterans and their families. The exhibits have also featured artifacts from Tipton County’s rich heritage that provide a fascinating account of our cultural history. The Tipton County Museum’s natural history exhibits do not change, with the exception of additions — and a great many additions have been made to this educational area since the museum doors opened in 1998. The Nature Center is now showcasing a state-of-the-art display case housing approximately 86 mineral specimens from the United States and many foreign countries; a collection of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks; a 60 million-yearold fish fossil from the Green River formation in Wyoming; a 6-pound meteorite from Odessa, Texas; three tektite stone meteorites; a trilobite

specimen; an 85-pound diamond-sawed log section of petrified wood from a ranch adjoining the National Petrified Forest in Arizona; and additional specimens for student Rock and Mineral Workshops. A “Discovery Center” and Kiosk Computer System programs help explain relationships among the plants and animals in the world around us. Children of all ages enjoy seeing and touching the lifelike displays of animals that live and roam in Tipton County. Examples of snakes, spiders, butterflies, bees, moths, worms and other creepy, crawly critters can be found throughout the Nature Center. All of the natural history exhibits are designed to teach elements of ecology, botany, zoology and geology through interaction and discovery. Along with the natural history and history exhibits, the museum staff has developed an array of interactive programs in science and social studies for students in grades kindergarten through eight. Approximately 1,500 area students enjoy the “Museum Experience” each

spring and fall. And, in an effort to become a premier educational facility, the Tipton County Board of Education designated the museum as a CLASSROOM EXTENSION FACILITY. Adult programs and tours, special events, and an annual February Gardening Series of lectures are just some of the museum’s diverse offerings. Through history and natural history exhibits, 19 educational programs, tours, events, and life enhancement opportunities, people are being connected to history and nature through education at the Tipton County Museum, Veterans Memorial & Nature Center. The Tipton County Museum has grown quite a bit over the last 14 years, and this growth has been made possible by the continuing support of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen of the city of Covington, the Tipton County Executive, and the Tipton County Legislature. The museum could not exist without funding from our local governments. State Rep. Jimmy Naifeh has greatly assisted with museum funding by helping to secure state grants for exhibit improvements and educational programming. Funds from the Museum Corporate Sponsors — including Patriot Bank, The Tipton County Veterans Council and the Bank of Tipton — have made it possible to upgrade exhibit designs, improve the quality of student field trips, expand opportunities for families, and otherwise enhance the offerings of the museum. Museum members, known as Friends of the Museum, are the backbone of museum growth. Members of the Tipton County Museum, Veterans Memorial & Nature Center share a dedication to preserving and restoring the historic collections for present and future generations. Member support also allows the Tipton County Museum to serve visitors and school children with enriching and stimulating tours, public programs, and special events. Annual membership dollars are essential to ensure that necessary funds are available to provide exhibits filled with Tipton County’s history and educational programs that are immeasurable in worth to our children and to our community. The Tipton County Museum Board of Directors includes Chairman Vernon Pairmore, city of Covington Mayor David Gordon, ViceChairman Charles Chumley, Ann Smith, Jere Hadley, Kerry Overton, Sherl Rose, L. K. Dyson, Tommy Hatcher, David Seagrave and David Gwinn. The museum staff consists of Director Alice Fisher, Program Coordinator Elizabeth Newman and a part-time museum clerk. Please plan to visit the Tipton County Museum, Veterans Memorial & Nature Center. This museum is a place for families, a place for fun and painlessly educational.


Passion for Herbs Grows Into a 29-Year Business Anthony’s Greenhouse & Herb Farm

J

ean and Bob Anthony have been married for 60 years. They met at a dance at the Top Hat in Covington on a Saturday night. A whole bunch of their friends were there, and everybody was having a good time dancing to the music on the jukebox. This was in February 1951. By November, they were married. They moved to the farm on Brighton-Clopton Road where Bob was born. Bob farmed and ran a dairy on land that has been in his family for five generations. “At that time, there were about

30 dairy farms in Tipton County; now there are none,” he says. Jean worked in the public sector until 1969. All of this changed suddenly and drastically when Bob was in a terrible automobile accident that rendered him unconscious for five weeks. While he convalesced for more than a year, Jean had to learn the business of running the dairy and the farm. “I taught myself how to drive the tractor,” she states. “I promptly mowed down the brand-new

by Christine Lemons hay trough. But, I figured out how to drive the tractor.” She learned to milk and care for the cows, buy the feed, tend the crops, and manage the farm. It wasn’t her passion, but she did what she had to do and she let her pioneer spirit shine through. In the male-dominated and somewhat chauvinistic world, she had to earn the respect of her male peers. “It took some time,” Jean says, “for (the) men to show me respect.” It was not easily acquired, though. In the beginning, Jean shares, “The feed store sold feed to my husband on a monthly credit basis. When I took over the farm, the store informed me that I had to pay each time I bought feed. It didn’t take me long to find another feed store.” Jean’s father, also a farmer, was her staunchest supporter. “He would come by to check on me, sometimes several times a day. Each time he came, he would tell me that he loved me,” Jean proudly remembers. He died suddenly in 1971. Despite her shock and sadness, she somehow mustered the will to help her mother run her parent’s farm while still managing her own farm while her husband continued to heal. But one day she had had enough. She said, “I quit! I was tired of running the dairy and the farm and I hated that cotton picker.” As Jean recalls her life at that time, she


stated, “It was a great experience, but I wouldn’t want to do it again.” Her passion for herbs began to grow when, in 1983, Jean started a simple herb farm with rosemary, sage, basil and parsley. It has grown from there. Bob sold the dairy in 1986 and has helped her ever since. They work together, but according to Bob, “It’s her baby; I’m just here to help.” Jean is a walking encyclopedia on herbs. She walks through the greenhouse generously sharing useful information on each plant she sees. For example, Roger’s delight blooms like an azalea, and the foliage is lemony. Lovage has a hollow stem that can be a substitute for the celery stalk in a Bloody Mary. Salad burnet tastes like cucumber and can be used in cucumber salad or sandwiches. Jean herself cooks with fresh herbs every day. “If it weren’t for herbs, she wouldn’t know how to cook,” Bob proudly proclaims. Plants are individually nurtured in a “birthing room” from either a cutting off the mother plant or from seed. According to Jean, “Gardening is the most stress-free environment. All of my plants are male. You can fuss at them and they don’t talk back. They love the music that we play in the greenhouse. They grow like mad. You can tell the difference overnight.” Twenty-nine years ago, an annual plant sale was started at the end of May to mark the close of the season. Jean began to invite speakers to come and give lectures on subjects like roses, herbs and hydrangeas. She converted the barn into a meeting room for plant lectures and cooking demonstrations. Gradually, she added vendors of homemade herbal products like soaps, bath salts and baked goods. After some years, it became known as the Herb Festival. It now has a huge following. “The sheriff’s department sends someone out each year to help manage all of the traffic,” Jean says. “Cars are parked up and down both sides of the street.” In 2012, the Herb Festival will celebrate its 23rd anniversary on Memorial Day weekend (May 26–27). Jean will be providing another “A” list of speakers. Crafts with also be available. And, of course, there will be the plant sale. Among the various herbs and plants Jean grows and sells at the festival is Kentucky Colonel mint, used to make mint juleps. There are several varieties of lavender and rosemary available, as well as sorrel, which comes up early in the spring and is the key ingredient in sorrel soup. There’s even a mosquito plant that you can purchase. If you crush the oily leaves and rub them on your skin, it repels mosquitoes. It’s easy to see why Jean’s work is her pleasure. She loves what she does. “Bob and I have met some of the nicest people you will ever meet in your life.” www.covington-tiptoncochamber.com

The Business of Beef Claybrook Angus Farm

T

here is a place in the Covington countryside, down old country roads, that Carl Turner and his family call home. The name is Claybrook Angus Farm, and it is one of only a handful of family-owned and -operated farms left in Tipton County. The farm is nationally known for performance Angus cattle and the production of ranch-raised, premium Angus beef. The Turner family should be proud to boast that they are in their third generation of operation. But Carl Turner isn’t the boastful type. He’s actually a shy and humble man who prefers to tend to the business of running his 1,500-acre farm without pomp. “This is hard work,” he declares. “It is a true business. When you are in the livestock business, it is a 24/7/365 operation.” Carl and his wife, Jean, played together as children. They attended the same grade school and the same high school at Leigh’s Chapel. Farming seemed like a natural career path for him since his parents were farmers. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, he studied agriculture and animal science at UT Knoxville, where he was also involved in the FFA and 4H clubs. He and Jean moved to Claybrook Farm in the 1960s, and they’ve been there ever since. They reared four sons who are now grown. Two of them, Chris and Dave, work on the farm with Carl. For the last 35 years, Claybrook has been diversified. “It is more than a cattle farm,” Turner states. Of the 1,500 acres of working farm land, 500 acres is grass pasture for grazing. The other 1,000 acres is used for row crops. “We grow soybeans, wheat, hay and corn. We grow all our own grain to feed these cows. We conduct research to

10

produce a higher-quality, more enjoyable food source,” he says. The livestock is also given a mineral supplement made up of calcium, phosphorus and other elements. An ultrasound of the yearlings is conducted to determine the quality of muscling and the amount of marbling — the inner disbursement of fat is what makes the meat tasty. Turner also sells breeding stock, shipping live bulls nationwide. The Claybrook Farm brand can be found throughout the United States. Carl says that his cattle can be found in the Napa Valley in California, on the Canadian line of North Dakota, and even as far south as the bayou on the Gulf Coast in Louisiana. Pure-bred Aberdeen Angus was developed specifically for beef production in Scotland in the 1600s and the 1700s. All other breeds were bred to pull a plow or for milk production. Angus cattle are generally good-natured and adaptable, hardy and undemanding, maturing at around 2 years of age. Angus females give birth easily, without much stress, and have excellent calf-raising abilities. Gestation is approximately 275 days, and a typical Angus calf is small. The cows usually rebreed each year. Carl states that between April to mid-summer it’s not uncommon to see cows nursing while carrying next year’s calf at the same time. Since females are for breeding, each one births an average of 10 to 12 calves. The males are used both for breeding and for beef production. Farming is the only business Carl Turner has ever known. “I’ve traveled all over the United States. My wife and I have been on a couple of cruises. I’ll tell you, there’s really no place like home,” Turner quietly reveals.

by Christine Lemons People ask him if he will ever retire. His response is to ask them, “How do you retire from your hobby? I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. I’ve loved to go to work every day.” Claybrook Farm has entered a new adventure. Claybrook Farm Meat Company was created in early 2012. This is a joint venture with the farm and Michael Rice to bring beef from the farm to the table. They are also supplying meat to such fine restaurants as Chez Philippe in the Peabody.

A Brief History of Claybrook Farm In the early 1900s, three Claybrook sisters inherited a farm consisting of a large tract of land northeast of Covington that stretched down to the Hatchie River. The sisters would stay at the Lindo Hotel when they traveled to Covington twice a year to conduct business. In the 1930s, Covington businessman Bate Shelton purchased the farm. It is said that he owned one of the area’s first Ford dealerships and Ford Tractor Company. When Shelton died, the farm was passed down to his nephew, Jack Jetton, in the 1950s. Jetton and Carl Turner began raising Angus cattle on the farm in the 1960s. When Mr. and Mrs. Jetton died in 1988, the farm was split and sold. The row crop acreage was sold to the Doug Billings family, while Carl Turner purchased the rolling pasture acreage. Both families still continue their respective farms to this day. The Turner family is in their third generation of operation.


Got Game? Turner Game Birds

by Christine Lemons

T

ed Turner and his family run a farm where a lot of interesting activity takes place. A large rooster named “Colonel” struts around like he owns the place. It’s not Turner’s rooster. It showed up awhile ago and just hangs around threatening to flog passersby. Sheep with their lambs wander in a field near the barn. A set of creamy white cat brothers roll around on the ground, while in nearby pens are German short-haired pointers bark incessantly, waiting to go hunting. All but one dog was bred from the same mother. The youngest is 10 months old and already hunts with the older dogs. Nestled in the midst of this bustling farm in Tipton County is Turner Game Birds. Here, Ted Turner has a wild game preserve of Chinese ring-necked pheasant and bobwhite quail. It just goes to show that you never know what you’ll find in Covington, Tennessee. Ted and his twin brother were born on the place. He grew up playing with his six brothers and swimming in the pond that was on the farm. “It’s where I learned to swim,” he recalls. Silt from a neighboring property filled it in years ago. “When we were kids, my brothers and I would come home covered in mud. Mother would cringe because she knew we had been swimming in that pond again,” he remembers. His dad grew up on the farm across the street. In fact, four generations of Turners have lived and farmed in that general area. Many Turner family members still farm within a stone’s throw of each other.

After Ted graduated from high school in 1961, he attended UT Martin. In 1968, he came back to the farm where he and his wife, Carolyn, have been ever since. She worked in banking for many years before retiring, while he was an ag teacher at Covington High School. In addition to farming, Turner was an auctioneer. Back in 2000, he had some commission revenue set aside, so he took his son to South Dakota, the pheasant-hunting capital. It was on this trip that Ted shot his first pheasant. “I said to my son, ‘We could do this back home,’” he recalls. The seed sown on that trip developed into the business that became Turner Game Birds. He started with 12 Chinese ring-necked pheasant. “They are upland birds, not waterfowl,” Turner says. “The biggest expense is the feed — 250 birds eat about 50 pounds of feed per day.” In addition to the pheasant, Turner also raises bobwhite quail. The quail and pheasant live together in a 50-by-100-foot flight pen. Breeding is generally part of his game business, but because he is redoing his pens, he will not be breeding this year. Turner explains, “This is what is called a ‘put and take’ hunting preserve. The birds are wild game, so once they are turned loose in an area of brushy sage grass, they run free. It is a ‘fair chase’ when they are released.” During a hunt, his dogs smell the game, then “freeze and point” to flush out the birds. Pheasant prefer to run rather than fly, but when surprised, they erupt from the ground attempting to fly to nearby cover. A hen will blend right into the sage grass where it will “hold,” hoping to be undetected by the hunter. Generally, a farm that has sage grass growing on its land is an indication of low soil fertility. Though Turner’s soil tests high in elements and is ideal for raising crops, he deliberately grows the sage grass for his birds. “In some places this year, it’s a little thin. I like it to be thicker to hide the birds,” he states. He burns it off around the first of April, at the end of hunting season. Ring-necked pheasant can be hunted year-round in Tennessee, but hunting season at Turner Game Birds is from October 1 through the end of March. A typical “fair chase” hunt consists of one to six people, but four is the ideal number of participants. The cost is $135 per gun, for which you receive the opportunity to shoot four pheasant and 12 quail, or you

can choose a combo pack. Guides and dogs are included in the price. You may bring your own dogs, but the price is the same. A safety talk is given before each hunt, and hunts can last between 2.5 to 3 hours, but times can vary. Turner doesn’t carry a gun on the hunts, and he doesn’t shoot for his customers. He makes no guarantees of a minimum catch. You take home what you shoot. There is an additional, though minimal, processing fee to have your birds rough dressed for freezing. Other than a print ad that he runs in the locally distributed Mid-South Hunting and Fishing News magazine, Turner finds that he really doesn’t need to advertise. He is fortunate to receive most of his business through wordof-mouth endorsements from previously satisfied customers. The oldest hunter that ever came to hunt was 95. “Yes, he shot a pheasant! You meet a lot of interesting people. Some you have a ball with; some you never care to see again,” he states. Visit their website for more information: www.turnergamebirds.com.

Everything’s Coming Up Roses Wells Mid South Roses

S

pringtime in the greenhouse of Wells Mid South Roses must be an awesome sight to behold. After all, Whit Wells grows some of the highest-rated show roses in the world. As a rose hybridizer, he creates roses of unusual color combinations. Some of them are solid, while some have varying shades of color on the blooms. Many are close to perfect in form and are high centered. Ironically, Wells did not sell a single rose for Valentine’s Day. That doesn’t bother Whit, though, because selling flowers is not what he does. He sells plants, not cut flowers. Most of his plants are show roses anyway, so he doesn’t sell many locally. Many, though, are shipped all over the United States. “I ship more roses to California and Ohio than anywhere else,” he says. Wells guesses that he has always had an appreciation for roses. He remembers being in his grandmother’s rose garden before ever attending school as a little boy. The true passion began around 1955 or so, some time after Whit and his wife, Kathryn, married. He bought three rose bushes in Memphis, and the love has grown from there. The Wells name is actually better known in Tipton County as a family of grocers and restaurateurs than for roses. Whit Wells was born in 1930 in the store that his dad bought from his grandfather. The house was on one end of the building, and the store, which had one gas pump, was on the other end. Whit says, “As far as I know, my family has been in the grocery

by Christine Lemons business longer than any other family in Tipton County.” Lack of a formal education didn’t deter Whit from success. Despite the fact that he never finished grammar school, he built the Wells Meat Processing Plant and worked there for 45 years until he sold it at age 65. Somehow, in spite of family and work demands, he always found time to garden his roses. “You make time,” he declares. He and Kathryn spent much of their time together growing roses. Before her death in 2004, they traveled to the various rose conventions. “People from all over the world attend these conventions,” he says with excitement.

In 1972, he was president of the Memphis Rose Society. He has maintained his membership in the Rose Hybridizers Association and for a long time was an accredited national judge. “My life was really busy and I needed to give up something, so I gave up judging.” he says. Life in the greenhouse hasn’t always been the proverbial bed of roses, though. In 1989, he sprayed his roses with a bad fungicide, and it killed over 17,000 of his plants; some of them he had been crossing for over 10 years. One rose he lost had green petals when it was in full bloom. “That’s the way life is. The more it costs you, the longer you can remember it,” he states with a

smile. It took several years for him and his roses to recover. Despite such hardships, he has remained a very pleasant and optimistic man. He estimates that he has created close to 80 different rose varieties. His roses, along with all varieties in the world, are registered with the American Rose Society in Shreveport, La., of which he is a member. Wells has named a number of roses after celebrities. Before his death, Danny Thomas signed written permission for Whit to name a rose after him. Brenda Lee said that the miniature yellow rose with a red edge he named after her was the prettiest rose in the world. Whit even named a red rose after the Brighton Cardinals. “I figure that Brighton is the only high school in the state of Tennessee with a rose named after it,” he shares. The “Memphis King,” a deep red rose, is one of the highest-rated varieties he grows. His commemorative “911” rose is a deep red with no real fragrance, while the “Ground Zero” is a pink blend with a beautiful scent. Country music legend Jimmy Dickens recently gave written permission to have a rose named “Little Jimmy Dickens,” which was then presented to him at the Grand Ole Opry. This beautiful rose will join several more of Whit’s roses in the Nashville Music Garden Hall of Fame park, including a red rose named “Elvis”; “Barbara Mandrell,” which is light pink; “Rocky Top,” a coral pink; and “Tennessee Waltz,” a pink blend. About his world renowned roses, he humbly says, “I do about 10 percent of the work, and God does the rest. I just hope I’m doing my 10 percent well.” He adds, “I’ve always said that when it gets to be really hard work, I’ll quit.” According to Wells, it’s hard to quit something that you love to do.
