Tornado touches down By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com

SEE SIRENS, PAGE A3

The National Weather Service has determined an EF-1 tornado was the source of damage at two Mt. Lebanon Road homes last week. With approximate wind speeds of 95 miles per hour, the tornado is believed to have touched down at 6:05 a.m. It was on the ground for only four minutes, but the tornado caused significant damage. Tony Cromwell learned early Friday morning how quickly life can change. “I guess it was a tornado or straightline winds,” he said Friday morning. “It all happened within about five minutes.” A farmer, Cromwell was up by 5 a.m. to prepare for work. His wife, Connie, was asleep on the couch then, but she woke up and moved into the bedroom. An hour later, their home and the home of their neighbor, James “Bo” McClain, had been damaged beyond repair. “It sounded like hail hit the house, then it just exploded,” Cromwell said. “I run in the den and I could see the sky through the roof.” The roof had been ripped off, the ceilings had fallen in. Trees all around his property had fallen down, taking power lines with them, and now stood twisted and splintered. Three of the four grain bins across the street had been moved by winds: two were smashed into pine trees, the top of one of them was in the lake behind Cromwell’s house. Another bin was reportedly in a field a mile away. MemphisWeather.net reported the tornado’s path length was 1.3 miles. “It’s devastation,” he said. “It scared Connie to death. She was laying in the floor, screaming and hollering. It was loud, but I never really heard the wind.” Phones weren’t working and trees were blocking the doors and windows of Cromwell’s home. His daughter and her family, including her two children,

live in a trailer across the field. He climbed over the trees and borrowed his brother’s four-wheeler to check on them. “All I was concerned about was these kids, I was trying to get to them.” Thankfully, there were no injuries and only minor damage to his daughter’s home. “It didn’t hurt the trailer, but it moved her car. The wind also totaled my SUV and damaged my truck.” Within minutes family members, friends and neighboring farmers were at Cromwell’s home helping cleanup the damage. Outside, chainsaws buzzed for hours to remove the trees from atop the Cromwells’ house. Inside, dozens of other people were wiping down framed family photos, moving furniture out of the house and using shovels to scrape soggy insulation from the floors. It was an amazing show of support, the Cromwells said, and they would like to express their sincere thanks for the help and support they received on Friday. “Special thanks to Cromwell & Scott, LLC and crew, TC Vinyl & Crew, Sheri Richardson and Lynette DeGrazia for their long hours of hard work,” Cromwell said. “And to Teri Turner who provided breakfast to everyone that morning and to all others, too many to list, thank you. We are so blessed to live in such a wonderful community.” North of the Cromwell property, the tornado moved the McClain home off of its foundation. Dr. Jesse Can-

When Ignacio Espinoza moved to Covington in 1995, he wanted to achieve the American dream. Working at a friend’s restaurant in Jackson, one afternoon Espinoza happened upon Covington and so he began working to meet his goals. “I wanted to open a restaurant of my own.” he said. “I thought Covington was a good-sized place to start since there were no other Mexican restaurants here.” Soon he opened La Pachanga and, later, Perico’s. During the early years of Espinoza’s restaurant business, his wife and three young children were still in Mexico. He was determined to create a better life for them in the United States. In 1999, his wife, Rosa, and

Brighton in running for dog park Brighton has been named one of 15 nationwide finalists in the PetSafe “Bark for Your Park” contest, which awards a total of $200,000 in funding for cities to build local dog parks. For the third year in a row, pet-passionate citizens across the U.S. demonstrated their desire for off-leash dog parks in their communities, nominating 1,130 cities in the contest. Only 15 cities, including Brighton, will move on to compete as finalists, PetSafe announced today, with a chance to win $100,000 or $25,000 to build a local dog park. The 15 “Bark for Your Park” finalist cities are divided into three groups based on relative population size. Brighton is competing against Mountain House, Calif., Pontiac, Ill., Safford, Ariz. and Silver Cliff, Colo. "We are overwhelmed again by the enthusiasm for ‘Bark for Your Park,’ and we’d like to see every community in America enjoy a dog park,” said Randy

Boyd, president and CEO of Radio Systems Corporation, maker of the PetSafe brand. Brighton provided verification of land availability and civic leader support, as well as community support through online votes, in order to qualify as a finalist. The online votes will reset for the next phase of the contest, and city supporters should vote daily for Brigh-

ton in order for the community to compete for a share of the prize money. The finalist communities will continue “barking” for their park by voting daily on www.petsafe.net and PetSafe’s Facebook page now through July 26. The finalist city with the most votes will be named the “top dog” and win a $100,000 PetSafe dog park. The city with the high-

The siren at Poplar Park was struck by lightning several weeks ago, just hours after it'd been tested. Barkelew said claims have been submitted, but Whelen, the company that manufactures the sirens, only builds parts when they are requested. "They don't keep them in stock," he said. "That doesn't make sense to me." Additionally, parts cannot be taken from one siren to repair another because they are custom manufactured, he said. Malfunctioning sirens are a concern for the public, but Chief Barkelew said the aren't meant to be the only warning system in place during severe weather. He encourages residents to use technology to help ride out the storms. "Most everyone has a smartphone these days. A lot of news channels have weather apps and sometimes users are alerted to warnings at the same time we are, so they already know they should be in a safe place by the time we turn the sirens on. Don't depend on the sirens."

obligations that may get in the way of earning a college degree. A 2010 survey conducted by the Nielson Company and Stanford University found that 87 percent of Hispanic immigrants value higher education, but only 13 percent have earned a degree. Working hard at the family business while getting an education is difficult, but the Espinozas have made it happen. Last month, the three oldest Espinoza children graduated from Dyersburg State Community College and each plans to continue with a fouryear program in the fall. They are also the first generation of their family to have completed high school. Juan, now 23, will attend University of Memphis and study international business. Alex, 21, will pursue a degree in computer programming at Middle Tennessee State University. He’s interested in creating video games. “I want to experience life,” Alex said. “Leav-

ing Tipton County is sad and exciting at the same time. I have so many relationships with the friendly, nice people of this community. We know most everyone in Covington from working for the family business.” Claudia, 20, will continue her studies in nursing at the University of Memphis. “I can’t wait to be a part of the U of M Tigers. Although I loved DSCC, and being home during this time, I’m so excited to continue my education on a larger campus. And I can’t wait for Tiger basketball season to begin.” The Espinozas' fourth and youngest child, Aiden, is in eighth grade at Brighton Middle School and wants to be a pilot when he grows up. Claudia credits her parents with encouraging academic success within the family unit. “Our parents always said that ‘education is a success that no one takes from you,’” she said.

So is achieving the American dream.

Continued from A1 young children, Juan, 8, Alex, 6, and Claudia, 5, left the Mexican city of Ciudad Manuel Doblado GTO and made their way to the American South. When they emigrated, they spoke very little English and struggled with the culture shock that living in a new country often brings. In Mexico, boys had to march to their classes like soldiers; the girls were expected to wear dresses every day. Traditionally, children walk to school each morning, return home for a two and a half hour lunch and rest, a period of time called siesta, then walk back to school. When the children began school in Tipton County, three Spanish translators were used to communicate with the children and help their transition. As they grew, the children were expected to help out at Perico’s and then at Breakfast Cove, the restaurant the family currently owns. It’s not unusual for first-generation Americans to have family

non, who is working to organize a donation fund for McClain, said the homeowner is unemployed and recently underwent two knee surgeries. “He’s engaged and wanted to get married,” Cannon said of McClain. “His fiancée has been caring for her father, who is disabled too.” The fund is still in the works, but Cannon said anyone who wishes to donate can email him at jesse. cannon51@gmail.com for more information. No warning That there were no injuries is a miracle, especially considering McClain and the Cromwells had no warning. And tornadoes like the one that hit Mt. Lebanon rarely have tornado warnings due to their transient nature. The NWS warns the public to be prepared during severe weather, no matter how small the threat. The home he’s lived in all his life had been destroyed, but Tony Cromwell said he’s lucky to be alive. “It was bad. We was lucky to survive, I guess.”

Don’t put your life on our line. This season, prevent a senseless tragedy by steering clear of train tracks. Not only is riding an ATV on a railroad’s right of way illegal, you may be too focused on having a good time to hear a train coming.

FLASHBACK

Sales tax increase a no-brainer There are big changes looming on the horizon in South Tipton County, changes that could save your life. If you’re willing to pay for them, that is. I’ve covered Munford and Atoka for more than six years and fire protection has always been a complaint from residents. As has been reported, residents and officials in Atoka don’t believe their town is being adequately protected by the fire department because Station 3, located at Walker Parkway and Elizabeth Drive, was rarely manned prior to December. Atoka currently contracts services from Munford, and pays $375,000 annually for fire protection, but budget OFF THE RECORD constraints have left ofECHO D AY ficials in Munford unable to hire an adequate number of firefighters. There are currently eight full-time positions for the Munford/Atoka Fire Department, which means one firefighter for every 1,788 residents in the city limits. According to Patrick Coughlin, a retired fire chief and frequent contributor to Fire Chief Magazine, the department needs nearly double the positions to safely suppress a structure fire. “In my experience, the average number of firefighters needed to stop a typical house fire with a reasonable level of safety to firefighters is 13-15,” he said in a 2009 article. The only other full-time department in the county, in Covington, employs 22 full-time firefighters. MAFD is grossly understaffed and, thankfully, officials in both cities are actively working to address the issue. The bad news? Full-time firefighters aren’t free and it will take a tax increase to fund additional positions. The good news? The increase is only .5 percent, which is only an extra nickel on every $10 purchase. Additionally, it’s sales and use tax, not property tax, so anyone who spends money in Munford and Atoka will help contribute to making your home a safer place to be. Both cities are planning a referendum in September and residents will have the chance to vote whether or not the increase will be instituted. Officials in Munford have been very clear that if the measure passes, more firefighters will be hired. The direction in Atoka is less clear because it depends on what happens, city officials said. The referendum could pass in both cities, fail in both cities or pass in one and not the other; until then, officials are keeping their options open, but there has been considerable interest in an independent department. One thing is clear: something needs to be done to increase fire protection (and, perhaps, lower the ISO rating and your homeowners’ insurance rates) and additional revenue is what it’s going to take to fund it. Do you want quicker response times? Do you want increased safety? Do you want to increase retention rates? Of course you do, so put your money where your mouth is. Vote for the tax increase, then shop at home to make sure your tax dollars fund programs that will benefit you and your neighbors. It seems like a no-brainer to me.

GUEST OPINION

USDA helping families achieve the dream of homeownership By TOM VILSACK USDA Secretary Throughout the month of June, USDA will celebrate National Homeownership Month with a renewed commitment to providing safe, affordable housing in our small towns and rural communities. Our theme for this year’s Homeownership Month is “Bringing Rural America Home.” When families can find a good place to live in rural America, they’ll stay there. They’ll invest in their community and help create new economic growth. Ultimately, this strengthens rural communities and small towns, helping to boost population and

create new opportunity. By providing access to affordable, safe housing, we don’t just help American families – we help make rural communities a great place to call home. These efforts also create good jobs in the short term and boost the economy. Industry estimates show that the construction of a new home creates economic benefits that support up to three new jobs. The sale of an existing home creates economic benefits as well – contributing nearly $60,000 to the U.S. economy. Under the Obama Administration, USDA has helped more than 650,000 American families achieve the dream of homeownership. We have also taken new steps to help

families hit especially hard during the recession. USDA created a new initiative – the Rural Refinance Pilot Program – that has helped more than 5,500 homeowners refinance their mortgage at lower rates. Earlier this year, USDA expanded this initiative from 19 to 34 states in an effort to provide assistance for more families. USDA’s record work to provide rural housing assistance is just one part of the Obama Administration’s comprehensive plan to revitalize the rural economy. This month, we will also keep doing all we can to help Congress get a multi-year Food, Farm and Jobs Bill done to support our efforts. This is important because a wide SEE USDA, PAGE A5

But there’s no quick fix to this problem and any caller who claims otherwise is likely being deceitful. Encourage your parents or grandparents to discuss their debt situation with an honest, professional debt counselor or a financial advisor. Here’s one more thing you can do to help your parents or grandparents avoid financial fraud: If they don’t already work with a trusted, qualified financial professional, introduce them to one. If your parents have a relationship with such a professional, they will be less likely to listen to any questionable, unsolicited offers than if they were trying to manage their finances on their own. You’re in a good position to know how much, or how little, help your elderly loved ones may need in terms of avoiding financial abuse. So be willing to do whatever it takes to help them enjoy their retirement years comfortably. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

Brighton student to attend U.S. Naval Academy

The Leader 901-476-7116

By FRANCE GASQUET fgasquet@covingtonleader.com Katelyn Price is the first Brighton High School student to receive an appointment to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. Katelyn was one of 14 students nominated by Representative Stephen Fincher from the 8th district of Tennessee. As of 2010, the acceptance rate is 7% of applicants. Female candidates comprise less than 25% of this year’s entering class. In contrast to paying for college, the young men and women who enter the Naval Academy are compensated during their enrollment, and after graduation, serve for five years as commissioned officers in the United States Navy or Marine Corp. Over the years, the US Naval Academy has had amongst its graduates: 1 President of the United States; 2 Cabinet Members; 16 Ambassadors; 24 Members of Congress; 5 State Governors; 5 Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; 2

Well, the 30% chance of rain gave us a big storm Friday morning with 2.6 inches of rain. My sympathy goes to the Tony Cromwell family in the damage to their home; and to others who had damage. James and I drove over to Mason at noon on Saturday for lunch and the power was out, and we sat and watched another storm go through. We returned to Mt. Carmel, without lunch, and saw that one of the big old oak trees had blown over in the yard of the Mt. Carmel Presbyterian Church. I don't know how much rain we got then, along with another rain that night around bedtime, but we were glad to see the sun come out Sunday! I’m so sorry that Oklahoma had another round of tornadoes, with nine deaths, along with three storm chasers, that day. I’m glad Mike Bettes from The Weather Channel is okay! We've watched that channel for days now! Our Summer Series at the Covington Church of Christ began last Wednesday with our regular starting preacher, Mark Blackwelder, from Freed-Hardeman. Vacation Bible School started Sunday night and goes through Wednesday. It’s a great time to be at our church. Please join us! Yesterday I took my "church granddaughter" Christina Evins, who is now a teenager, to lunch and clothes shopping for her birthday. She tried on lots of outfits for the salesgirl and me; and we had lots of fun. I

www.covingtonleader.com

overdid the buying, but she looked so cute in everything she liked! We had Chinese for lunch, went to Wal-Mart, where she pushed the buggy for me, and then I took her home to Brighton. It was a fun day! This Friday is Ladies Movie and Dinner Night, and congratulations to Whitney Barber, who will be married Saturday at 3 p.m. on her grandmother’s front lawn (Libby Click)! It will be beautiful! Whitney is a daughter of Jerrie Wayne and Terri Barber. Congratulations to Drew and Brandi Laxton on the birth of a son, Sawyer Tate, born May 22nd and weighing seven pounds, two ounces. He was nineteen and three-quarters long! Proud grandparents are Chris and Michelle Laxton, and proud great-grandparents are Dale and Shirley Laxton! Dale Laxton is recovering at home following his stroke. I hope he mends soon and completely! Also on our prayer list is: Jedidiah Phillips, who broke the same arm for the third time, same spot; Charlene Dalrymple, recovering from sinus surgery; Emma Matlock, recovering from surgery; Shirley Cook, taking treatments; Al Chaney, having tests; Bonnie Holbrook, who got good results from a heart cath; John Henderson, Betty Baskin, Mary Culver, Sam Stitt, Phil Huffman, and so many more, along with all our servicemen and women. My sympathy goes to the Rose family in the death of their patriarch Coy Rose, on

Sunday. Rose Construction and APC are big entities in the county and state, but I still remember Rose Iron Works, and so many houses proudly boast wrought iron made by Mr. Coy. I went to school with Randy, and always respected that Christian family and their values. We've lost a great member of our community in Mr. Coy. Congratulations to Ethan Stewart on graduating from marine boot camp at Parris Island, S.C., He's off to Camp LeJeune for combat training. Also congratulations to Dakota Turner, son of Richard and Kanet Turner of Walla Walla, WA., who graduated from high school and has enlisted in the United States Air Force, pursuing a career as a para-rescue jumper. I’m so proud of these boys, along with Seth Kellow, son of Alanna and Rob, who began training as a navy seal last Friday! Happy birthday this week goes to Joseph Sonwineski on June 2, to Hannah Henderson on the 3rd, to Kali Langston and Aerik Langston on the 4th, to Jedidiah Phillips, Alison Stewart and Coley Max on the 6th and to Jordan Hill on the 8th! Happy anniversary to David and Heather Keith on June 2nd! That was a great wedding! This week's Farmer's Almanac Quote: "Water soil before adding fertilizer and again after application." It’s going to be a hot week ahead - stay cool and enjoy June! Until next week . . .

On May 29, 2013, Texas Gas Transmission, LLC (Texas Gas), a subsidiary of Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) under Section 7(b) of the Natural Gas Act in Docket No. CP13-485-000. Texas Gas has proposed to abandon certain segments of the 26-inch interstate natural gas pipeline it currently operates in this county. Specifically, Texas Gas is seeking authority from the FERC to abandon in place approximately 623 miles of its mainline pipeline facilities from Hardinsburg, Kentucky to Eunice, Louisiana, including all auxiliary and associated facilities. The facilities to be abandoned consist primarily of one of three “looped” parallel pipelines that comprise a portion of Texas Gas’ mainline facilities. Upon receipt of FERC authority, the pipeline will be taken out of natural gas service and repurposed for use in natural gas liquids transportation service. Texas Gas anticipates abandonment of these facilities to commence during the second quarter of 2014. Following abandonment, Texas Gas will continue to provide natural gas service on its remaining pipeline facilities, which will remain mostly in the same easement, from Hardinsburg, Kentucky to Eunice, Louisiana. The Texas Gas Abandonment Project is more fully described in the application to FERC. A copy of the application is available at the Tipton County Public Library, 300 West Church Avenue, Covington, TN 38019. The application may also be viewed on the FERC website at www.ferc.gov, using the “eLibrary” link by entering the docket number in the docket number field to access the document. Further, a separate notice regarding this project will be mailed directly to landowners who are considered affected by the current proposal, under FERC regulations, and to relevant government entities. For information on becoming involved in the FERC review of this project and/or to obtain the FERC pamphlet, An Interstate Natural Gas Facility on My Land? What Do I Need to Know?, go to the FERC website at www.ferc.gov. You may also contact the FERC Office of External Affairs at (202) 502-8004 or toll-free at (866) 208-3372.

THE CIVIL WAR IN TIPTON COUNTY By RUSSELL BAILEY County Historian May-June 1863 On May 30, a lady at Portersville wrote to her husband in the 9th Tennessee comparing regular Confederate soldiers and Richardson’s Partisan Rangers: “Henry McCain arrived safe at home about two weeks ago. He has received great attention from the lovers of the South…young ladies in particular. The boys are fearing the Rangers will cut them out of sweethearts, but they have reason to be more uneasy about those wounded soldiers, for the girls will love the regular soldiers best, no matter how badly they are wounded. I think you are all rather too hard on Richardson’s men. For my part I don’t know what they ought to do therefore I don’t wish to say. I would rather have my husband in the regular army & my brother too, but everyone has their own choice & I reckon have a right too. Pa is a strong Richardson’s man, thinks they ought to stay here; acknowledges they cannot do anything with large bodies

Jamestown DarSay Burton

GreetingsHopefully everyone enjoyed a nice safe Memorial Day on Monday? As for me, I, as always, placed flowers on the graves of my parents, Nehemiah Burton and Josephine Burton, at the VA Cemetery on Jackson in Memphis. Dad passed away May 24, 1990 and Mom, February 15, 2007. You know, it still feels empty without them. However, all of my memories of my parents are very happy ones. I still find myself smiling whenever I recall any of them, which is almost every day. God gave me two of the greatest people ever; and today I am just as proud to call or refer to them as Mama and Daddy! I am blessed to have had them so long in my life, you bet I am! Daddy served in the army; he was a private there in the early 40’s. June 8 at 10 a.m., there

will be a health fair in Jamestown at the Carey Chapel AME Church. The screenings are free to the public. Blood pressure, temperatures, in addition to other medical procedures will be offered by local medical personnel. Also at the health fair, there will be a grocery give-a-way. Tickets are $1. Contact president Rev. Pearl Andrews or any JCHO member or staff for tickets or more information. Treasurers are Mary Burton and Jessie Cooke. Join JCHO and the entire community for this event-- see you at the fair! Yearly $25 dues are still being collected. These dues go towards Dicken’s Cemetary care, college scholarships, towards a community meeting hall, and additional fundraisers. Please contact any JCHO staff ASAP, we need your help no matter where you are now, you will always be from Jamestown! The George R. Ellis Alumni is preparing a train trip

of the enemy, but the fear of them he thinks keeps out the enemy partly.” Hugh Henry McCain of Company K, 51st Tennessee Infantry, was wounded in the left arm in the Battle of Murfreesboro and discharged at Shelbyville. He joined the Joe Brown Bivouac in 1902 and attended the Confederate reunions at Brighton. Hugh died February 4, 1922 and was buried at the Salem Cemetery. On June 8, 300 men of the 2d Illinois Cavalry with probably some of the 52nd Indiana, left Fort Pillow for Memphis via Covington. Some camped at Portersville “hunting houses to eat at.” A lady wrote: “On the evening of the 8th inst., we were…surprised by news the Yanks are at Mr. W.’s. We flurried round a little. Jennie went to the Dr.’s & mother & us girls then took our seats in time to see them in full blue riding into the Dr.’s lot. As soon as they had fed their horses, 14 of them came marching deliberately down on us, all privates. We sat & when they got to the door they politely bid us good evening asking for supper. Mother told them she wished them to treat us well, if they would, she would try & do sometime next year to New Orleans, LA. from Memphis. To get on board, contact Jessie Cooke or Calvin “Scooter” Butler. Come go with us to “the Big Easy.” We are praying for Joseph Heaston, Sr., Rudolph Boykins, Louise Mason, Isiah Burton, Sr., Ruth Alston, Jennie Stewart, Posey Reed, Carlotta Jones, Connie and Christine Brown, Susie Alston and family, Katarene Harber, Gladys Miller and family, Flossie Woods, Jessie Lawson, Beaulah Wakefield, Doris King and Wayne Jerry.

Happy birthday on June 4 to our sister Marie Burton Powell, now of Atlanta, GA. Marie was home over the weekend to celebrate the May 10 U. T. Knoxville graduation of Xavier, oldest son of her sister Rev. Pearl Andrews and brother in law, Rev. Romel Andrews of Atoka. There was an oldfashioned BBQ held at their lovely home on Saturday afternoon with several family members and friends. I was unable to attend the Memphis festivities due to local rainy weather. Congratulations Xavier! Daughter Ashley, home from Murfreesboro, and younger son Michael were present as well. Additional special guests were Xavier’s grandmother, Mamie Andrews of Covington, and greatgrandmother, Ruth Griffin of Ripley. Aunts, uncles and loads of cousins came from all over to share in the excitement. Congratulations to Shawanda Barbee of Covington

her duty by them. They assured us they would. When all was seated, Ma went to give out provisions to be cooked & I was left alone with them. I thought they might get to pilfering through the house & my business was to watch them. They were from Pillow & were the same that ate with our cousin Last summer, at least some of them were. They must be the best Yankees out for they behaved in a very nice matter here. They sat still & acted like men ought to. While I was sitting among them one asked me about guerillas. I told him not to question one on that subject, for I disliked a news bearer. He then asked me If I would not report on them. I replied I did not know…They found out I was rebel sure enough…Ma and me had to talk to them. Beff and D. were mute as mice. They staid all night at the Dr’s…Fourteen came back & ate breakfast with us & then all put back to the fort. They searched Mr. W.’s house for the flag. Twenty-one ate supper & 7 breakfast…

for making the dean’s list. Shawanda’s the daughter of Marilyn Hayes Barbee and Walter Barbee of Covington. Shawanda, you’ve always been a very bright student. Way to go, girl! This is a wrap for now. Remember, “Everyone of us has or have had goals in our lifetimes. Always be reminded that goals are our dreams with deadlines!”

Top 5 moments of 2012-13 By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com With the 2012-13 school year now in the books, this seems like a good time to look back at what Tipton County's high school athletes accomplished last year. There were quite a few highlights as several teams and athletes broke new ground. Here's our top five stories:

5

Brighton, Munford make playoffs The season certainly ended before the Cougar faithful wanted to as Munford's football team lost to undefeated Jackson North Side in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs. But what a ride it was in the regular season. The Cougars defeated Millington for the first time in several years on a dramatic two-point conversion. It was the first win for the seniors over their bitter rivals to the south. A big win over Dyer County was a also landmark victory as the Cougars made the playoffs for the second straight season. The Brighton football team started the season 1-3, prompting some to surely write off the season. But the Cardinals had other plans. Brighton reeled off six straight wins, including a dramatic win over Millington and league victories over Munford, Dyer County and Hardin County to earn a No. 2 seed in the Class 6A playoffs. The season ended with a first round playoff loss to Millington, but the Cardinals definitely gave opponents something to think about next year.

fensive categories, led by a record-setting season by running back Johnston White (above). Among the school records set: rushing yards in season (White, 2,671), extra points (74, Bobby Van Cleve), points (578) and team rushing yards (4,764). The Chargers rolled through the regular season undefeated and won four playoff games before falling to Knoxville Fulton in the Class 4A title game.

Boys 2 Young Men visits jail The Boys 2 Young Men Christian Ministry group from Canaan Grove Baptist Church traveled to Haywood County during the month of April as part of their monthly mentoring outing. The young men range in age from 7 years old to adults. The group had the opportunity to meet Sheriff Melvin Bond and his staff at the Haywood County Justice Complex. Sheriff Bond spoke to the group about peer pressure, the importance of education and staying in school, listening to their parents and other positive role models, being

selective in choosing their “running” buddies and anger management. The young men had the opportunity to ask Sheriff Bond questions, with the most frequently asked being “What does it feel like to be incarcerated?” The sheriff was quick to tell the group that “this place is not somewhere they would want to live. Within two weeks, your friends stop coming by to visit, they stop accepting your calls and you are quickly forgotten by the outside world. "The only constant is your parents and you can only see and talk to them

on a video/TV monitor and never get to touch or hug them.” The group quickly realized how fortunate they were to have a solid support system at home and at church. They donated Sunday School books to the incarcerated youths for their encouragement and spiritual growth. Each month, the young men participate in either a service project, attend an area institution of historical significance, participate in a faith based workshop, learn life skills or raise funds for future events or their scholarship fund. The group is currently

teaming with Generation Y (the young ladies' group) to raise more 2,000 pounds of food through the MidSouth Food Bank for agencies that distribute food in Tipton County. Canaan Grove Baptist Church was founded in 1889 and is located at 1517 Mason – Malone Rd. in Mason. You can find Canaan Grove M. B. Church on the web at www.canaangrovebaptist.com or like us on Facebook at Canaan Grove Baptist Church. Pastor James R. Simmons is the under shepherd.

Teaching our children diligently By ZACH COOK Special to The Leader Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9, NAS) Emily and I recently had the opportunity to attend a Christian homeschool conference in Nashville entitled the “Teaching them Diligently Conference” (http://teachingthemdiligently.net). The purpose of this yearly conference is to provide support and encouragement for homeschool parents, children, and families and to celebrate the focus of Christian home education – that is, the discipleship of children to glorify God. The title of this conference and organization is based on the “Shema”, the central Jewish prayer from Deuteronomy 6 which is the first section of Scripture that Jewish children memorize and recite. As parents in today’s society, we would do well to obey the words of this passage of Scripture as we seek to train up our children in the way they should go. (Proverbs 22:6). We should first and most importantly love our children with the love of Christ and teach them to “love the LORD their God with all their hearts, and with all their souls, and with all their might” (Deut. 6:5). Our homes should be a refuge and an oasis of love for our children. Parents should be a child’s primary source

of encouragement. We should not discourage them in any way or beat down their spirits. Fathers do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged (Colossians 3:21). We should build up our children and edify them. We must love them unconditionally as God’s love is not based on conditions or anything that we do. God’s great love is evident in the fact that He sent His sinless, perfect, Son, Jesus, to the earth to die as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. (Romans 5:8) We should praise our children’s strengths and support their unique gifts and personalities because God created each of them in His image for a unique purpose in order to bring Him glory. Ultimately, we are to demonstrate our love and Christ’s love for our children by just being there for them. We must also disciple our children. The word “disciple” means follower and student of a mentor, teacher or other figure. Our children learn from us – our words, our actions, our attitudes. Whether we believe it or not, our children imitate what they see and observe in our homes. We reproduce who we are in our children. May we provide a Godly example to them as we seek to imitate Christ in our homes (1 Corinthians 11:1). We should teach our children to read and love God’s Word, pray daily and often, and serve the LORD with joy and thanksgiving. The command to make disciples is the key command given by Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20 to His disciples before His ascension and we would do well as parents to make Christ-honoring disciples of our children. Part of making disciples of our children includes discipline (disciple). We should teach and reward Godly behavior while discouraging and punishing ungodly behavior. Finally, we are responsible for providing instruction to our children (Deut. 6:6-7). Fathers, do not

provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the LORD (Ephesians 6:4). We must teach our children through verbal instruction by communicating God’s Word, the rules of the house, and the lines of authority in our home. We must teach them by affirming them when they obey and correcting them when they disobey. We must also train them by our Godly example and by showing them how to do Godly things such as praying, reading their Bibles, and helping others, as well as practical things such as making their beds, tying a tie or their shoes, shaving, changing a flat tire, and being financially responsible. What kind of home do you provide for your children? Is it a home that is filled with God’s love and with His Presence? Is it a home where God’s truth is taught and demonstrated and instruction is provided? There are no perfect parents. We are all sinners by nature and cannot parent our children apart from the grace of God and guidance of the Holy Spirit. The truth is we only get one chance in this life to be parents. Let me encourage and challenge you to help raise up a generation who will love the LORD, share the Gospel, be and make disciples, and impact our community and our nation for eternity.

ment review Board of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation pursuant to Section 7-82-702(7) of Tennessee Code Annotated. www.covingtonleader.com Thursday, June 6, 2013 • The Leader • A17 PUBLIC NOTICE Town of Mason 2012 Water Quality Report 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.

health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (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.

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. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation prescribe regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. All public water systems treat and routinely test their water. The sources of drinking water (both tap water 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-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. 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

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 undergone 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 drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (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.

Q u a l i t y

D a t a

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 are set at very stringent levels. 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 residential Disinfectant Level – the highest level of disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for the control of microbial contaminants. MRDLG: Maximum residential Disinfectant Level Goal – The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLG’s do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. BDL – Below Detection Limit Discretionary language regarding the use of averages to report levels of some 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-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. TT: Treatment Technique or a required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water. About the data: Most of the data presented in this table is from testing done between January and December of 2012. We monitor for some contaminants less than once per year and for those contaminants, the data of the last sample is shown in the table.

Hello dear readers, We had a storm at our home this week. I was out on our back deck and the wind came blowing the trees at our driveway. I thought they were going to come down, but it broke off limbs and lots of leaves. We are so thankful that we did not have any trees down in our yard. Our next door neighbors had some trees down in their yard. We miss the Williams, they have been gone two weeks. Their son-in-law is sick, so they went down to Texas to be with their daughter. I don' t visit them much....but I know that they are always there. I think their son and daughter-in-law have been cleaning up the Williams' yard. The old man here at my

home got the grass cut on Monday. It takes about two hours to cut the whole yard. He has to edge the yard too. I am so thankful that he likes to do the yard work. I am looking out the window down toward the lake. There is an island out in the lake and we have a bridge that we can walk across to the island, but it is not wide enough to get the mower across, so he has to use the weed-eater. As I sit here writing my article, I look out the window to notice that the island looks really good. It is an inspiration to just look out my window. This Sunday at Elm Grove Methodist Church, we are having a "pot luck" luncheon. We are getting ready to go to Guatemala on our mission project. I had to stop writing for a little while because my daughter and her 15 year old daughter just came by to visit with us. Our

ered that the commissary had our favorite ice cream (strawberry, made by Blue Bell). It comes in a pink carton. It is so good. We bought two half gallons. The old man is now outside picking up pine cones. There are 10 pine trees and several cedar trees on the other side of the driveway. He picks them up and puts them in our ravine at
