Town of Mason under fire

Lack of financial controls lands officials in hot water with state By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com No stranger to controversy over mismanagement of taxpayer money, this time it's the

city officials in Mason that are under scrutiny. In a scathing letter dated April 24, Dennis Dycus, the director of the state comptroller's Division of Municipal Audit, accuses the mayor and aldermen of "allowing ample opportunity" for theft to continue at city hall after a clerk was charged with stealing more than $96,000 in 2009.

Following the embezzlement scandal, Dycus provided city officials with a nine-recommendation report related to the establishment of internal controls that would deter future thefts. "(The former clerk) was allowed to embezzle such a large amount of money because you, the mayor and board of aldermen, have

refused to implement even the most basic system of internal controls, therefore providing ample opportunity for anyone responsible for the financial affairs of the town to more or less take whatever they wanted to, which they did," Dycus wrote. None of the recommendations has seen any followthrough, he said.

On Wednesday, Mayor David Ward refused to answer questions about internal controls or standard operating procedures, citing a need to focus on an upcoming meeting with an representative from the Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS), the city attorney, a certified public accountant and the town recorder.

Atoka charter revisions clear General Assembly By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Charter revisions submitted to the General Assembly have been passed, bringing the most significant changes to the document since its original draft in 1911, said Town Administrator Brian Koral. However, the changes should not affect day-to-day life for residents. "Most of it's just structural changes and changes in vernacular," Koral said. "Back then they said the town had to appoint a constable, but now we appoint a police chief, for View the instance." proposed Since its adoption more charter than a century ago, the revisions, town's charter has had and other nine revisions, the last documents, four being in 1969, 1977, online at 1973 and 2006. townofatoka.com. Currently, the mayor's role on the board is to serve as a tie-breaker, but he will also have the power to veto an ordinance under the revision. "That gives the mayor a formal role in the legislative process. We actually mirrored that on how the governor's authority works." As a means of checks and balances, the board will have power to override a veto by the mayor. If an ordinance is not signed within five business days of its adoption by the board, it will become law. There is no pocket veto, Koral said. The existing version of the charter requires the mayor to sign an ordinance if it's adopted by the board. "I think the mayor should have a formal say, because if there is something the mayor feels strongly about, then he has that ability to say no and the board can take that into consideration. It at least interjects him, formally, into that practice." Introduced in the General Assembly chambers by Representative Barrett Rich and Senator Mark Norris, the revisions received formal approval from the General Assembly on April 24. Koral expects the board to formally adopt the revisions at the June Board meeting, with an effective date of July 1. Reader’s Guide Mostly sunny. High 88, low 66.

Footloose and fundraising By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com By any criteria, Saturday night's Dancing With the Stars event at the National Guard Armory was a success. The sold-out event, which is the primary fundraising event for the Carl Perkins Center in Covington, raised $67,000 for the center, the most ever raised at the event, which has taken on various formats over the past 20 years. “We had a lot of people come out that don't normally come,” said Harriet Cannon, the event's chairperson. “It was a huge success. I think the Dancing With the Stars them was the key to the success.” The event was so successful organizers scheduled an encore performance Sunday afternoon. On Sunday, the dancers performed again to a crowd of approximately 100 people. Event chairperson Harriet Cannon said next year the Dancing With the Stars theme will be used again. "Next year is the 20th year of our dinner and auction event, Cannon said. "It's going to be a really big deal." Tom and Tiny Barton took first place, followed by Lee Johnston and Darlene Huffman, Ick and Ann Burlison and Mike and Marianne Dunavant.

Q&A with Jerry Craig FIRE CHIEF JERRY CRAIG

Age: 62 Family: married, three daughters, six grandchildren High school: Ripley High School College: UT-Martin Vehicle: Dodge 3500 Truck Favorite musical style: old country Favorite beverage: Coke Favorite food: Most anything

Editor’s note: This week we are continuing a new bimonthly feature called Q&A. Through this feature we hope to help you get to know your neighbors, government officials and others in the community. This week we meet Covington Fire Chief Jerry Craig, who has been with the Covington Fire Department since 1977. He became chief in 1986.

Q: When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A: Actually I wanted to be a lawyer. That's what I started at college to be. But it involved so much reading I had to change. I went into business. Q: What's the worst fire you've ever worked? A: One of the biggest fires we've had since I've been here was Mayes Howard Lumber Company. It was down on Liberty Street. That was probably one of the biggest fires we've had that I remember we had in Covington. It was June of '86, about four months after I had become chief. The building and the lumber company probably covered a couple of acres and everything was on fire. The hull of the building is still standing there by the compress.

guess. Q: Talk about the progress that the Covington Fire Department has made during your tenure. A: One of the biggest changes has been the improvement in equipment. We've got new and modern equipment now. It's just unbelievable. From the time I started to what it is today, the training is just a continuous thing. Hazmat is a big issue. We started a hazmat team back in …. probably in the mid 80s, and all of our people in the department are hazmat technicians. They've gone through a tremendous amount of training. You have to have so much training before you can even become a technician

…. The training and the equipment is the biggest improvements we've made. A lot of it is mandated through the government. That's the biggest obstacle we've had to overcome. When I started we had two pumpers. Now we've got four. We didn't have an aerial truck. The one we have now is a little old, but it's in perfect shape and passes all the tests. We got it in 1986. When I started, the turnout gear, the equipment that the men wear, it's been tremendously improved. When I started, we had like two air packs. Under the previous chief, we began to increase the amount of air packs that the men wear. Now everybody in the department's got their

Q: Have you ever thought about running for political office? A: No.

Q: How much longer do you anticipate working? A: I'm going to try and finish out this mayor's term, so we're probably talking about three to four years. When I started we were appointed by the mayor … Our job was, and still may be, 30 days at a time. In other words, our job's good for 30 days.

Our ISO rating, which is the insurance service organization that rates fire departments and determines insurance premiums, is a big deal. Covington now is a class four. It was a seven when I started I believe … I'd like to get us to a class three before I retire.

Appreciation, assistance, contention top city meeting By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com During last week’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen, Covington Mayor David Gordon and Alderman John Edwards spoke their appreciation for the crowds that helped clean the city during its recent Covington Clean Up / Fix Up. “We had a lot of young people participating and I was encouraged by the outpouring of the community to help us with that,� said the mayor who also apologized for missing the event due to illness. “It was a completely exhilarating experience this year,� added Edwards. “St. Stephens had quite a few people from their youth group to come up, the police and fire department were out there and it was more exciting this year because we had more people than normal. After these kids went down the street you could tell which street they went down and for a short time it was hard to find litter in Covington. I thank them.� The city approved a request from Covington Integrated Arts Academy for monetary assistance to help beautify its campus. The school was asking for assistance with $1,120 in landscaping costs estimated to add trees, azaleas, mulch and concrete. “We received a request from the CIAA PTO to help them with some campus improvements with the school,� explained Gordon. “This has come out of the administration of CIAA who feel that people probably come out to the city and drive by our schools to see if this is where they want to live. They think their campus can use some improvements.� In the request letter received from principal Sara Gangaware, the proposed landscaping project would be completed by the Covington High School landscaping class at no cost to the school. The request for funds was to cover the cost of supplies and plant material. Explaining that the city’s customary assistance for 501 (c) (3) non-budgeted requests was $200, Gordon recommended to the board that they give the school the $200 to assist the school with their plans, which was approved.

Covington sales tax collected for the month of February amounted to $278,465, an increase of more than two percent from the same month last year. Year-to-date sales tax collection is up a percent and a half or $1,987,505. “This is the three months in a row that our sales tax collection has been up over the same time last year,â€? said Covington Recorder/Treasurer Tina Dunn. The city has scheduled its spring paving projects, which include Fairway Estates and the remainder of Baskin Heights Subdivision, at a cost of $164,342. An addition cost of $63,000 would be needed to correct deficiencies on Sandpiper Street, which were recommended not to be completed at this time. “The latest repair that has been done is holding up and David Gray does not recommend the additional costs,â€? explained Alderman Tommy Black to Alderman Shelvie Rose’s dismay. “I’m really having problems with several things in this community and we all know that we have been having problems with this road,â€? said Rose. Black explained that in his opinion, engineer David Gray’s opinion and Puplic Works Director Robert Martin Simpson’s opinion, the additional cost was not needed at this time. “We’ve patched it enough through the years where it finally quit sinking,â€? said Black to Rose. “We don’t think its going to sink that much more if any. If it continues to keep sinking then we will have to dig it out but we just don’t have the money now without cutting out a third of the planned paving out there. It would be in our best interests and the citizens living out there that we go with what we have scheduled right now. This has been an on-going problem and I think its finally settled down.â€? “I’m upset for several situations in District 1 and parts of District 2,â€? said Rose. “Very much upset but it’s best that I don’t say anything right now. It’s to everyone’s advantage for me not to say anything right now. But I’m not satisfied and you know I’m not satisfied. I’ve got 20 years on the county Public Works‌ that’s all I’m going to say.â€? Rose and Black continued to have a side conversation, finally causing Gordon to bang his gravel several times.

MASON

“I’m not going to say anything else,â€? yelled Rose. “Well don’t please,â€? responded Gordon. “Well you’re beating that‌â€? “The two gentlemen to my right are discussing something between themselves and that’s not an orderly meeting and so we’re going to move on,â€? replied Gordon. “I have another situation which I am very much disappointed in. And I’m going to hold it in until the next meeting too because I’m very much disappointed in some people and I’m very much disappointed in the way some things are going and that’s all I’m going to say about that right now,â€? added Rose. The Covington Board of Mayor and Aldermen meet the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. The next meeting is Tuesday, May 10. The public is encouraged and invited to attend.

Continued from A1 or misfeasance in office." Dycus said his office communicates with municipalities primarily via email, but Mayor David Ward said he has received no such request and blamed the former town recorder. "I haven't had my mail brought to me so I can address these city issues," he said. "These issues were kept from me." The former recorder, who was fired in September 2011 because she was not paying payroll taxes for municipal employees, also received much of the blame in a 2009 report from Dycus regarding the embezzlement of utility payments. However, Dycus began sending his requests in November 2011, two months after Nancy Hazlerig's employment with the Town of Mason was terminated. "In all respect, he may not have received them," Dycus said. "We send emails and maybe he doesn't have access to that account?" In addition to not implementing internal controls, auditors have disclaimed issuing an opinion on the town's financial statements for six consecutive years due to: â–Ş the absence of an adequate fixed assets listing â–Ş many disbursements lacking adequate support

Mason's audit reports are available to the public online at: www.comptroller1.state.tn.us/ma Click on the 'financial' link. â–Ş controls over revenues were lacking â–Ş the absence of a customer deposit subsidiary ledger â–Ş no accounts receivable reports for utility billings A disclaimer of opinion is issued when an audit could not be completed for various reasons. Mason is the only municipality in the state whose auditor had to disclaim an opinion on the town's financial statements for six years in a row. "Municipal officials should treat these disclaimer opinions very seriously, taking whatever action necessary to ensure that unqualified opinions are issued in the future," Dycus wrote. "As elected officials of the Town of Mason,

each of you occupy (sic) a stewardship position and as such are responsible for the proper accounting of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenditures." Mayor Ward defends his actions, stating he has "nothing to hide," and also said the town was "four or five" years behind on audits when he took office in 2007. "I have done a lot for this town, I've lived here all my life," he said. "I've brought in $3 million in grants since I've been mayor. Let's talk about the good right along with the bad." Ward expects to provide a plan to the district attorney, who has become involved at the request of Dycus, on Friday. Dycus said he doesn't usually send copies of cor-

IN OUR OPINION

A message to Mason voters: clean house Mason city leaders have failed in their most basic duties: protecting the resources of the city’s taxpayers. A scathing letter from Dennis Dycus, C.P.A., director of municipal audit for the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury, indicates that the city has failed -- for six consecutive years -- to adequately account for its finances. The letter points to some had truths that are, frankly, quite disturbing. Specifically it lists that there is an inadequate or no listing of fixed assets, that there are disbursements that were made without adequate supporting documentation, that controls over revenue are lacking, that there is no customer deposit ledger and that there are no accounts receivable reports for utility billings. All of this comes on the heels of the conviction of Arnita Mitchell in 2010 for embezzling nearly $100,000 from the city. Now, Mayor David Ward is throwing the blame at the feet of former Town Recorder Nancy Hazlerig, who was cited for failure to perform her duties properly in a 2009 auditor’s report that unearthed the embezzlement for which Mitchell was charged. For the mayor to blame someone for failing to do her job when an auditor’s report indicated she failed to do her job three years ago defies logic. It’s clear to us who’s failing to do his job. It starts with the mayor and it spreads to the board of aldermen. This is nonsense and we’re glad the state comptroller is launching an investigation through District Attorney Mike Dunavant. The taxpayers deserve to know what is happening with their dollars. And based on the horrific bookkeeping, accounting and tracking of those dollars at Mason Town Hall, it seems clear that it’s either a sign of incompetence at best or graft and corruption at worst. This is nothing new. This is, apparently, business as usual in Mason and it’s frightening. By contrast, the Town of Atoka has redefined the term open government. Their 2013 budget has already been proposed and has been posted on their website, along with agendas and other documents relative to city business, as well as on Facebook. Mason is failure in comparison. Mayor David Ward and city officials know what happens when internal controls and accounting are not in place. Nearly $100,000 was stolen from the city and a woman who was on the city’s payroll served time for taking it. Enough is enough. Mason voters, we urge you to clean house if the District Attorney doesn’t do it for you.

Find the good and praise it: Frankie Watson and Lowell Russell My late friend Alex Haley, the author of “Roots,” lived his life by these six words: “Find the good and praise it.” Occasionally, I go to the floor of the Senate and cite an example of a Tennessean or some circumstances in my state that fit those six words. I recently spoke on the floor about the story of two extraordinary Tennesseans united by both their friendship and their courage – Lance Corporal Franklin Namon Watson, who sacrificed his life for our freedom, and his devoted friend and mentor, Tennessee Highway Patrol Sergeant Lowell Russell, who is recovering from critical injuries he sustained while on duty. Lance Corporal Franklin Namon Watson, or “Frankie” to everyone who knew him in East Tennessee, enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve in 2010. Last year, in September, at the age of 21, Frankie was killed while serving our country in Afghanistan, sweeping for improvised explosive devices in the Helmand Province. Frankie, the son of Stacy Couch and Troy Watson, didn’t shy away from difficult or dangerous work when he was back in Tennessee.

his recovery in a rehabilitation facility. Lowell is beloved by his community. A Facebook page dedicated to “Prayers for Sergeant Lowell Russell” is filled with loving prayers for Lowell. They call him “a wonderful man.” They talk about his “huge heart.” One says that, “Lowell has done so much for everyone else.” Numerous efforts are being made to raise money to help Russell and his family with expenses. Tennessee’s General Assembly passed a resolution to honor Lowell, noting his “immeasurable contributions to his community as a Tennessee Highway Patrolman... who exhibits superior standards of professional conduct and ethics.” It also says that “Sergeant Russell is wholly committed to noble precepts of public service that have earned Tennessee recognition as the ‘Volunteer State,’ and he should be specially recognized for his courage and gallantry as an esteemed member of the local law enforcement.” I add my great appreciation for Lowell to that expressed by our Governor and our general assembly. Honey and I pray for his strength in recovery and for strength for his family and friends during this very difficult time. Frankie Watson and Lowell Russell, we are proud of you. Find the good and praise it.

funds in virtually any investment you choose — stocks, bonds, government securities, certificates of deposit (CDs), etc. Third, if you own more than one 401(k) account, you could find it advantageous to consolidate them into a single IRA, thereby making it easier to allocate and monitor your retirement assets. And fourth, IRAs may give you greater flexibility if you plan to pass money to your children. In fact, if your child inherits your IRA, he or she has the option of stretching withdrawals over the child’s entire lifetime, rather than taking the money as a lump sum. (If you do transfer funds from your old 401(k) to an IRA, be sure to use a “direct rollover� to avoid the possibility of triggering unwanted taxes.) Before making any moves with your 401(k), consult with your tax and financial advisors. By looking closely at your options, and by getting professional guidance, you can make the choice that’s right for you.

maybe we’ll welcome her next week. Just a quick note to let you know my daughter and her new husband got home from their honeymoon last Friday night. They had a wonderful time. I’m so happy for both our families, we are all so close. Thank You Lord for answered prayer! I pray you all have such a blessed week and thank you all for letting me know you read my column, that is such a joy! Oh yes, speaking of that, can I ask all of my readers to please bring over a cake on May 19th to auction off for our cake auction. It will begin around noon, so if you can bring the cakes over around 10 a.m. and stay and have a hamburger, that would be great! Until next week, love the Lord your God, with all your heart, soul and mind and stay in His will and your world will be smooth sailing! God bless!

Mt. Carmel Elaine Watkins It’s a cloudy Monday afternoon. We got a little hard shower, not measureable though. We need more! This week’s Farm Report: We do need more rain and I can’t believe we’re already praying for it. It’s usually June or July before we run out of rain and start praying for it. But everything is early this year! Maybe tomorrow . . . corn is starting to twist and that’s not good. My sincere sympathy is extended to Thelma Brown in the sudden death of her son, Greg, 53 years young. He suffered a heart attack while cutting the yard. This family is in my prayers; Thelma is such a dear friend and member of our church. Keep this family in your prayers please. Prayers are also extended to LaVerne Baxter in the death of her cousin, Jean Hicks of Nashville. That family has my prayers. Genie Renfroe, Carolyn Whaley, Pat Farabee, Richard Huffman, Sandra Langston, Mary Anne Overall, J. T. Odom, Jimbo Edmonds, Craig Randolph, Geneva Travis, Trey Erwin, Bob Baskin, Dale Baskin and so many others are on our prayer list, along with our servicemen and women, and voters.

Millions of prayers have been answered for little Lucy Krull, who got a clean scan on Thursday. Go Lucy Go! There will be a baby shower at the Covington Church of Christ for Meghan Nolan on Sunday, May 6, 2 pm. Little Teeghan is expected soon - I hope Meghan makes it to the shower before she arrives!

Davis and Clopton United Methodist Church: Everyone is invited to the monthly men’s community breakfast this Saturday, May 5. The time has changed, they are serving now from 7 to 9:30 a.m. For the next four months, every cent donated at the breakfasts will go into Clopton’s building fund. Here’s a tip that may save your home from burning: take your clothes dryer’s lint filter out, take it to a sink and try to run water through it. If it holds water, it’s gunked up with detergent and fabric softener, a fire hazard. While you’re at the sink, just squirt some soap on it, rub for a few minutes and the water will run right through it again! “Thanks for Reading� this week goes to Libby Channell! Sa-lute!

Last week I was out in the back yard working on trimming up some azalea bushes before they got any further out of control. My three little ones where out helping me; well, at least they were outside with me, I should say. While kneeling down and trying to clean and clear the bottom of one of the azalea bushes, my youngest, BabyGirl, came running over crying and pointing at her knee. Sure enough, she had been running, fell, and had a couple small scratches. Daddy consoled BabyGirl and kissed the boo-boo. I noticed how she had several scratches on both knees, in various stages of healing. I just smiled at the thought of her tenacity. It couldn’t have been 5 minutes later when LittleMan came running over crying. Yep! He had fallen too and was showing me his back-yard battle scars. Like his little sister, he had scratches on his knees in various stages of healing. I gave him a hug and rubbed some dirt on the scratch and told him to go play; he is a little boy after all. Lo and be-

The Civil War and Tipton County April-May 1862 Compiled by RUSSELL B. BAILEY Tipton County Historian Gen. G. T. Beauregard’s Confederate army began their retreat from Shiloh on the evening of April 7. Dr. James R. Sanford, assistant surgeon of the 51st Tennessee Infantry, had reported to Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston’s medical director at 2 o’clock a.m. that morning. “I was then ordered to assist in transporting the wounded from there to Corinth.� Island No. 10 Tipton’s soldiers of the “Southern Guards�, 1st Tennessee Heavy Artillery, under Captain T. N.

Johnston, were engaged in battle at Island No. 10 during the first week of April. On the 4th the U. S. Carondelet steamed past the forts and batteries to New Madrid. A naval commander wrote of passing under the fire of the “war elephant of the Confederates,� the floating battery (9 cannon) from New Orleans. On the 6th the U. S. S. Pittsburg in their 20-mile run nearly to Tiptonville. Union ship fired shells into Southern camps and forts while Rebel artillery returned fire. Opposite Point Pleasant the Federals landed and spiked four heavy cannon. At 2 a.m. on the 7th, the

U. S. Pittsburg ran past Confederate forts while Union infantry moved to cut off the escape route of the Southerners. Half of the Confederate garrison was able to escape including Colonel Andrew Jackson Jr.’s 1st Tennessee Artillery, the gunboats, and two companies of West Tennessee cavalry that arrived at Randolph by steamboat. Colonel Jackson reported on the escape: “I ordered the guns spiked, and each‌ company to Reelfoot Lake‌ they left the post at 6:30 p.m. April 7, and after struggling some 20 miles through woods and swamps, reached Stones’ Ferry, and landed on the other side of the lake

about sunset April 8. From here we proceeded to Bell’s Station on April 11, and on to Memphis on April 14.â€? Fort Pillow Fort Pillow became the next Confederate stronghold on the Mississippi. On April 6, Gen. John Villepigue reported thus: Roads and Rivers: “Fort Pillow is not more than 29 miles from Mason’s Depot, on the Memphis and Ohio Railroad. A small stream, the Hatchie, intervenes‌ A good military road has been constructed to Mason’s Depot, crossing the Hatchie 11 miles from this point; a good flat-boat has been placed at the cross-

hold within three minutes BigMan fell off his bike. As I watched it happen I was thinking to myself, here we go again. But BigMan is 8 years old. Something was different with how he treated the situation. He jumped up and looked over at me, seeing me watch him. He quickly called over to me, “I’m ok, it don’t hurt me anymore.� I was about to be concerned with my children’s clumsiness and coordination or lack thereof when his words actually sunk in. “I’m ok.� Sure he had fallen, and I’m sure his knee hurt as much as his pride. But when he said, “It don’t hurt me anymore.� I realized he was saying, I’m getting older, I’m getting stronger, I’m getting tougher. There is a life lesson in that for all of us. Sure, we are all going to fall down. But, we need to realize that if we grow up, we can become tougher, stronger and more capable of handling little setbacks in the future. I think we need to appreciate those scars and scratches we have on our knees. It shows we’ve been through something and we’re still standing. Next time you fall, instead of crying about it, get up, rub some dirt on it, and keep going. Until next week, take care. ing, but is slightly out of condition at this time.� Troops: Artillery Battalion, Captain J. W.

901.476.4419 Former United States President Gerald Ford once said, ĂŹMusic education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them Ăł a world of work, culture, intellectual activity, and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.ĂŽ CIAA is falling right in step, whether it is through dance, vocal, or band performances. Since our magnet school is one of only three Arts accredited Value Plus schools in the state, our arts education department at our school offers everything including Honors choir, 5th Ăą 8th grade band, Dance and Drama classes, and a fabulous piano lab. It is nothing unusual to hear music flowing through the halls of our school on a daily basis and once you see them dance, you cannot help but marvel at the talented students we are blessed to have at our school. A perfect opportunity is this Thursday, May 3rd at 6 p.m. Our amazing dance and drama team, led by Ms. Deborah Walk-

er, will be performing ĂŹDiversity and Dance Around the World.ĂŽ The cost of admission is only $3 to come and see this spectacular cast of 3rd-8th graders demonstrate dances from seven different continents with some favorite music pieces of this generation. Ms. Walker loves being able to teach new things to her students through dance and feels the fact that CIAA allows her the opportunity to teach in the most creative ways allows the students to truly excel in so many more areas. Our choir program has been extremely busy this year. We have two choirs at CIAA, Little Stars Choir (3rd-5th) and AllStar Singers (6th-8th) both led by Mr. Chris Buckner. They have traveled to both to Jackson and Chattanooga this year for competitions including the Tennessee Treble Honors Choir. Two of our students, Zoe Liles and Elijah Thomas were selected to represent our school in the All-Northwest Tennessee Honor Choir. They have performed at numerous local events including Tennessee Technol-

ogy Center, LionĂ­s Club, Red Hat Ladies, Calvary Baptist, Dickens on the Square, and the ĂŹAround TownĂŽ Tour. CIAA’s choir will perform on May 15 at 6 p.m. in “CIAA’s Got Soul.â€? This concert will feature the music of “Motownâ€? along with other great soulful hits that we all love. It will also feature two performing artists who have been successful in the music world through recorded tracks. Mr. Buckner states he has so enjoyed traveling and seeing the students perform and canĂ­t wait for you to experience it as well. We hope that our community will be able to come and experience our childrenĂ­s talent first hand at both of these performances. Of course, just because the end of the year is approaching fast does not mean we have slowed down yet! Other upcoming events include Field Day this Friday, May 4th, our Summer Reading Bookfair May 7th-11th, Honors and Awards programs the same week, and our year-end TCAP Idol shows on May 18th.

MORRIS RECEIVES AWARD AT UT MARTIN HONORS DAY Cynthia L. Morris, of Munford, recently received the Jim Burdette Memorial Award during the 48th annual Honors Day at the University of Tennessee at Martin. The Jim Burdette Memorial Award is sup-

ported by memorial gifts and awarded annually to a student in the area of the humanities or law enforcement. The recipient is recognized for sensitivity toward other people and efforts to improve the

quality of life for humankind. Departmental and university-wide scholarships were awarded during the festivities, as well as Outstanding Student Awards from each of UT Martin’s five colleges.

Covington finished up the regular season in style over the weekend, sweeping a twogame series from rival Munford. Senior D.J. Max celebrated senior night on Friday by pitching the Chargers to a 4-0 win, striking out 11 and walking none through five innings. Blake Walker got the save for Covington. Tommy Beasley drove in three runs for the Covington. Josh Hibbard was 2 for 3 for Munford and Stephen Stewart doubled.

The Chargers pushed across the game-winner in the seventh on an error. Stewart paced Munford's offense a single and a double and J.C. Trobaugh doubled.

The Lady Chargers scored single runs in the fourth and fifth innings to pull out a 2-1 win over Brighton in a game that featured strong pitching and timely hitting. Autumn Glenn was the story for Covington. She allowed just five hits and a walk while striking out five, and also singled twice and drove in a run. Allie Moss had two hits an RBI and Jasmine Brown doubled for Covington. Brighton (24-5) got on the board first in the third inning on an RBI-double from Haley Craig. Laura Judy pitched well for Brighton, but took the loss. She struck out seven and allowed five hits over seven innings. In other action: • On April 26, the Lady Char-

Covington and Brighton matched up on the soccer pitch Saturday in the Best of the West tournament in Jackson. Brighton led 3-0 at the half, but the Chargers rallied with three goals of their own in the final 40 minutes and the game finished in a 3-3 tie. “This area's soccer has come a long way and both teams showed really well on this day,” said Brighton coach Zane Hill. “A tie seemed the only way the game could have ended with the balanced halves and effort both teams exhibited.” Tanner Burnett scored the first goal of the game and Barry Johnson added two more before halftime. Skylar Davis, Bobby Van Cleve and Daniel Joy each had a goal for the Chargers. Covington came back from a 3-0 deficit to tie. Brighton outshot Covington 21-11. “The inability to finish more opportunities came back to haunt us in the second half when Covington clawed their way back, putting us on our heels,” Hill said. “Covington is a young team, but did not show it with their ability to come back from

a 3-0 deficit.” Brighton finished third in District 13-AAA and will play at Munford on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the tournament semifinals. The winner advances to the finals and earns a spot in the region tournament. The season is over for the loser. CHS closes the regular season with a home contest against Dyer County tonight. In other action: • In a three game set at the USJ Best of the West tournament last week, Covington went 1-1-1. On Monday, the Chargers dropped the Haywood Tomcats 4-0 to follow up a 3-2 early season win over HHS. Rema Clay, Daniel Joy, Skylar Davis and Nick Owen each scored a goal. Covington fell to host USJ 6-0 on Wednesday. “They are doing everything that we do. They just do it better,” said Covington coach Robert Luttrell. “We are just getting to the point of our players being involved in club soccer in the off season to help get us to the level of the better programs in Tennessee like USJ.” • Brighton lost to Cordova on SEE SOCCER, PAGE A12

Hello dear readers, last Saturday night our daughter Becky Starr Glisson invited me to go to a Women’s Banquet at her church, Beaver Baptist. We had salad and dessert, which was very good. The guest speaker was great. They gave door prizes, my daughter got a T-Shirt and I got a wind chime. After the meeting one lady came up to me and said she enjoyed my column in The Leader. It really made my day to have someone say that they read my writings. I was not a good reporter, because I did not get her name. When you get 79 years old, some days I can’t remember my own name? Last Sunday we met and ate dinner with our Frayser Hgts Methodist Sunday school class. There were 24 people there. We met with David and Brenda Archer, they live in Arlington. This group meets once a month for a meal and fellowship. The old man has been very busy with his matches. All the old stumps and leaves were piled in an area in he back yard. He has been wanting to burn this trash all this spring and the old woman said “No, the wind is blowing�. Finally, this past weekend he got to burn all the stuff. It sure does look better. We went down to our good neighbors, Charlene and Alvin Williams yesterday and took them some of the Chocolate Cobbler that I had made.

They had company that said they lived around the corner here from us on Kellum Rd. She too said to me, “I enjoy reading your column in the Leader.� I have the most beautiful iris that are just now blooming. They are a deep, deep purple. I also have a mixture of white and purple and they are blooming now too. I have a big patch of light blue iris in my flowerbed. They are okay, but I plan to move them out of this flowerbed. If anyone want light blue iris, please come by my house and I will give you a big bunch. When we moved here four years ago I brought strawberry plants with us... I put them in the front flowerbed and they have really grown. We have picked two quarts of berries from these plants. I am in the process of moving the plants out to our garden spot. I planted five plants out there this year. We are having a “time� with our lawn mowing equipment. The old man’s Kabota tractor has been in the shop. He got it back this week and something is still wrong with it ... it goes so slow. I cut the front yard with our lawn mower and something is wrong with it too. We are enjoying going to Elm Grove United Methodist Church. We could walk to church if we were not so lazy. We will be getting a new preacher in June.

Charlie and I had a lot of fun last week at Cathy Waterbury’s home. There were many of our friends there as well. We had some very good fish. Mrs. Debra Moody and her family were there as well. Debbie and I have been friends a very long time. We also got our new kitchen counter tops installed. Now we are waiting on the floors and then it’s finished. No more remodeling.

Jay Ridings Cell: 619-5991 John Evans Cell: 201-9426

Revive us, O Lord! By ZACH COOK Special to The Leader Every powerful movement of God throughout the history of our country has been sparked by the faithful and fervent prayers of God’s righteous ones. “Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.” (James 5:16). When is the last time you got on your face before God and cried out to Him to revive you, to awaken you from your slumber, and to call you out to accomplish His divine purposes in your life? The Lord has placed me on a path of spiritual awakening and renewal in my personal walk with Him and I have been encouraged to have been able to be around others in this community who are experiencing this same awakening and renewal. So I plead with you dear Christian brother and sister – cry out to God and ask Him to revive you and awaken His Spirit within you – then and only then we will experience a powerful movement of God in this community that will be a catalyst for revival in Covington, Tipton County, the Mid-South, and our nation. My pastor, Dr. Steve Gaines, shared this prayer for Memphis and I have taken His prayer and adapted it to our city. I pray that this would become part of your prayers for our city and that it would be a blessing and encouragement to you. A Prayer for Covington, Tennessee Heavenly Father, I come to you today in the name of Jesus thanking

you for placing me in Covington, Tennessee. I thank you for this city and ask You to bless and prosper it in every way. Please bless every church in Covington that exalts the name of Jesus and proclaims salvation in His name. Bless every Bible preaching pastor. Place Your hedge of protection around them and protect them and their families from every scheme and attack of the enemy. Bless every deacon and lay leader in Your churches. Help the churches in Covington to love You, love each other, and love those who are lost and without Christ. Provide for every church and help every church to be diligent to guard the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. May the churches in Covington enjoy peace, be built up, go on in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, and continue to increase. Help each church to be a house of holiness, a house of worship and celebration, a house of giving and joy, a house of evangelistic outreach, and above all, a house of prayer. Take away formalism, fanaticism, liberalism, legalism, and traditionalism from every congregation. May the latter glory of the churches in this city be greater than the former glory. Bless our civic leaders. Bless the mayor of Covington, the county executive, and each member of the board of aldermen and county commission. Bless every judge and every other official. Bless their families also. Please give them Your guidance. Help them to live Godly lives and make wise, Godly decisions that will help our city and county to pros-

per. Promotion comes from You, not man. You exalt one and put down another. Please place the people you desire into each position and office of leadership. Bless our educational systems-our public schools, private schools, and each family participating in a home school program. Bless the administrators, teachers, other workers, the parents of the students, and most of all, the students themselves. May the students in Covington and Tipton County, like Jesus, increase in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man. Keep the children safe at each school, and protect them from violence. Lord, please bless Covington’s economy. Bring in Godly, wholesome businesses to Covington that will provide employment for people so they can provide financially for their families. Please help those who are able to work but are without jobs to find the right job opportunity so they can fulfill Your command to work. Please help us to reach out in love and compassion to those who are unable to work and meet their needs. Bring about racial reconciliation in Covington. Remove every form of racism. May those who are black, Hispanic, Asian, white, or of other ethnic background, love those of other races. Please help me to love and respect every person as You value them, because You created each of them in Your image and each of them is an eternal soul for which Christ died to save. Protect our city from violence and crime. Bless our law enforcement officers and protect them.

Please remove and keep out any business that would encourage sin in this city, such as organized crime, gangs, gambling, strip clubs, and the trafficking of illegal drugs. Please send Your divine protection upon Covington’s citizens and help us to have a peaceful city. Father, bless Covington and Tipton County, and its citizens indeed, enlarge our borders, let Your hand of blessing be upon us, and keep us from harm. Cause this city to become a center for spiritual awakening, prayer, and revival. Help Your people in Covington to repent of our sins, humble ourselves before You, and walk in Your ways. Help us to be a blessing to the other citizens of Covington. May Your favor and good hand rest upon Covington. May the city of Covington bring glory to the name of Jesus. We love You, and we love and pray for Covington, Tennessee to be blessed in every way. In Jesus’ name, Amen! Will you join me in this call to spiritual awakening and revival in our community? Let me encourage you to attend the National Day of Prayer event in Covington today at the Tipton County Courthouse at noon as we seek God for the welfare of our city. If you would like to join others who are crying out to the Lord and praying for revival, please contact me at ezcook@bellsouth.net.

Mason Water System Water Quality Report 2011 Is my drinking water safe? Yes, our water meets all of EPA’s health standards. We have conducted numerous tests for over 80 contaminants that may be in drinking water. As you’ll see in the chart on the back, we only detected 6 of these contaminants. We found all of these contaminants at safe levels. What is the source of my water? Your water, which is ground water, comes from the Memphis Sand Aquifer. Our goal is to protect our water from contaminants and we are working with the State to determine the vulnerability of our water source to potential contamination. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) has prepared a Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP) Report for the untreated water sources serving water to this water system. The SWAP Report assesses the susceptibility of untreated water sources to potential contamination. To ensure safe drinking water, all public water systems treat and routinely test their water. Water sources have been rated as reasonably susceptible, moderately susceptible or slightly susceptible based on geologic factors and human activities in the vicinity of the water source. The Town of Mason’s sources rated as reasonably susceptible to potential contamination. An explanation of Tennessee’s Source Water Assessment Program, the Source Water Assessment summaries, susceptibility scorings and the overall TDEC report to EPA can be viewed online at www.state.tn.us/environment/dws/dwassess.php or you may contact the Water System to obtain copies of specific assessments. Why are there contaminants in my water? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. Community water systems are required to disclose the detection of contaminants; however, bottled water companies are not required to comply with this regulation. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Este informe contiene información muy importante. Tradúscalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.

For more information about your drinking water, please call Chris Trimble at (901) 294-2308. How can I get involved? Our Water Board meets on the second Monday at 7:00 p.m. at The Mason City Hall. . Please feel free to participate in these meetings. Is our water system meeting other rules that govern our operations? The State and EPA require us to test and report on our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. We have met all of these requirements. Results of unregulated contaminant analysis are available upon request. We want you to know that we pay attention to all the rules. Other Information Due to all water containing dissolved contaminants, occasionally your water may exhibit slight discoloration. We strive to maintain the standards to prevent this. We at The Town of Mason work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children’s future. Do I need to take special precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have under-gone organ transplants, people with HIV/ AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about not only their drinking water, but food preparation, personal hygiene, and precautions in handling infants and pets from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Water System Security Following the events of September 2001, we realize that our customers are concerned about the security of their drinking water. We urge the public to report any suspicious activities at any utility facilities, including treatment plants, tanks, fire hydrants, etc. to (901) 294-3525

Water Quality Data What does this chart mean? • MCLG: Maximum Contaminant Level Goal, or the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. • MCL: Maximum Contaminant Levels, or the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated constituents, a person would have to drink 2 liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of having the described health effect. • MRDL: Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level or MRDL - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for the control of microbial contaminants. • MRDLG: Maximum residual disinfectant level goal. The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. • BDL: Below Detection Limit. • AL - Action Level, or the concentration of a contaminant which, when exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. • Non-Detects (ND): laboratory analysis indicates that the contaminant is not present. • N/A: Not Applicable. • Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) - explained as a relation to time and money as one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000. • Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter - explained as a relation to time and money as one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000.

Atoka Water System Water Quality Report 2011 Is my drinking water safe? Yes, our water meets all of EPA’s health standards. We have conducted numerous tests for over 80 contaminants that may be in drinking water. As you’ll see in the following chart, we only detected seven of these contaminants. We found all of these contaminants at safe levels. What is the source of my water? Your water, which is ground water, comes from the Munford Water System and Poplar Grove Utility District which get their water from a sand aquifer. Our goal is to protect our water from contaminants and we are working with the State to determine the vulnerability of our water source to potential contamination. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) has prepared a Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP) Report for the untreated water sources serving water to this water system. The SWAP Report assesses the susceptibility of untreated water sources to potential contamination. To ensure safe drinking water, all public water systems treat and routinely test their water. Water sources have been rated as reasonably susceptible, moderately susceptible or slightly susceptible based on geologic factors and human activities in the vicinity of the water source.

A wellhead protection plan is available for your review by contacting Mark Johnson at the Atoka Water System weekdays. Why are there contaminants in my water? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Enviromental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800426-4791) Este informe contiene información muy importante. Tradúscalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien. For more information about your drinking water, please call Daniel Lovett at 901-837-5300. How can I get involved? Our Water Board meets on the first and third Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at the utility office. Please feel free to participate in these meetings. Is our water system meeting other rules that govern our operations? The State and EPA require us to test and report on our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. We have met all of these requirements. Results of unregulated contaminant analysis are available upon request. We want you to know that we pay attention to all the rules. Other Information The sources of drinking water (both tap and bottled water) include rivers,

lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occuring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animal or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water: -Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. - Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, farming. - Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. - Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. - Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA and the Tennessee Department of Enviroment and Conversation prescribe regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public wate systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. Do I need to take special precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons, such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have under-gone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about not only their drinking water, but food preparation, personal hygiene, and precautions in handling infants and pets from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Lead in Drinking Water If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Munford Water System is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components,. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www. epa.gov/safewater/lead Water System Security Following the events of September 2001, we realize that our customers are concerned about the security of their drinking water. We urge the public to report any suspicious activities at any utility facilities, including treatment plants, tanks, fire hydrants, etc. to 901-837-0171.

MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. • AL - Action Level, or the concentration of a contaminant which, when exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. • Non-Dectects (ND) - laboratory analysis indicates that the contaminate is not present. • Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) - explained as a relation to time and money as one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000. • Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter - explained as a relation to time and money as one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000. • Million Fibers per Liter (MFL) - million fiber per liter is a measure of the presence of asbestos fibers that are longer than 10 micrometers.

Lead and Copper: During the most recent round of Lead and Copper testing, 0 out of 11 households sampled contained concentration exceeding the action level.

Contaminant

Iron: Iron occurs naturally in our raw water and occasionally accumulates in the distribution system. Iron shows up as “red” or “rusty” water at your tap. Although you do not want to drink water that is not clear, iron is not considered to be a hazard to your health. We test for iron daily and it is usually around 0.02 ppm. The aesthetic limit for iron is 0.3 ppm.

Chlorine

Lead: If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Covington is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead

Upscale Resale

A store within in a store

By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com

Built at the turn of the century, it was once the home of Flippen’s Department Store, Martin’s Department Store, Guttman’s and Cherry’s Department Store before it spent approximately 30 years as a financial institution. Today, it’s been returned to its original purpose and is once more the home of a merchandise shop. Upscale Resale, located at 107 East Pleasant St. on the historic square in Covington, is a shopping mecca for old and new retail items. Whether one is searching for antiques, reproductions, furniture, glassware, outdoor items, lamps, pictures and posters, knickknacks, floral arrangements or even to have a watch or clock repaired, it can probably be found among Upscale Resale’s more than 20,000 square feet of shopping floor space, which is spread out on two floors and within more than 30 separate rooms, hallways and lobbies. Opened for just two years, Upscale Resale has quickly become the favorite retail store of many loyal shoppers near and far and new fans tend to find its hidden treasures every day. “Every day we have somebody new come in the door,” said manger Kim Billings. “Our vendors I think is what makes us so special. We have great vendors that work their booths a couple of times a week and they have great prices and great items!” Originally opened by Rodney Simmons, who still owns the building, Upscale Resale was taken over by Wayne Rhodes when Simmons had mentioned closing the business. “I kind of opened my mouth and inserted foot,” laughed Rhodes, when asked why he took over the business. “There was a void on the square when Mia’s closed and Upscale Resale filled that niche and desire for antiques. It was too good of a thing for Covington and the square to lose. It brings a big draw to the square.” Upscale Resale is the home of more than 250 dealers – both booth renters and consigners – who are looking to meet the needs of its shopping clientele. Shoppers will find new and used items located

throughout the store and with so many different vendors, it really is like being in hundreds of different stores within one location. “We are a consignment resale shop,” added Billings, who, along with five employees, makes shoppers feel at home. “We have antiques and collectibles, but we also have new items as well. We have some of the most beautiful floral arrangements made by Hometown Flowers and the Rose Garden. Every day we are getting new items in.” Billings said the most compliments she receives about the store are the variety within its walls and how organized it is. “People are always telling us that they love the organization of the store and the fact that it is so clean,” said Billings. “They also love our prices. If you’re just having a blue day and you want to come in and buy a $4 treat for yourself, you can find something. If you want to buy a nice piece of furniture, you can and you can feel good about the price. I think the vendors make it good because they search for things to sell that people want.” Merchandise finds its way into Upscale Resale by one of two ways – by booth dealers who have a lot of items to offer or by consignors who only have a few items. Billings explained that booth rentals are charged by the square foot plus 10 percent of their gross sales. For vendors who consign only, they are required to pay 30 percent of their sales but incur no rental fees. Upscale Resale also offers a layaway plan for more expensive pieces. “We offer booth spaces which are rented out to vendors and they are responsible for that area,” explained

Upscale Resale Spring Open House

Continued from A23 a little bit more for yourself.” Billings said she believes the store has done well, not only due to the hard work of its vendors but also due to the fact that every business on the square works together and helps drive business to each others stores. “In addition to the advertising that Wayne does, the Chamber has been a big help,” she said. “Past Times will sent people over to us if someone is looking for something they don’t have and we send people to them.

Billings. “They can dress up their area anyway they’d like – it’s really their own little store. We just work for them as their cashier. Consigners don’t pay a booth rental fee and bring in a few items at a time that are a good fit for our store. Those items can be placed where we need them to be but the best thing about cosigning is you may have a piece that’s just too good to give it away at a yard sale and you can sell it here and still give people a bargain, while making

Folks love shopping on the square because they can visit one location and visit more than one store within walking distance. That’s a huge benefit to the square.” This Saturday, May 7, Upscale Resale will be hosting a spring open house from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to welcome old friends and to meet new ones. “We want to show Upscale Resale at its best, to show people what we have here,” said Billings. “We’ll have door prizes every hour, refreshments and our booths will be looking their best.” Upscale Resale is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To inquire about opening a booth or consigning, call 476-7103.
