Charged, arrested

Former teacher faces multiple counts of raping students By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com

Cindy Clifton, a former teacher at Crestview Middle School, was arrested and booked into the Tipton County jail Monday. She’s charged with statutory rape involving multiple students and providing alcohol to minors.

COVINGTON – A Crestview Middle School teacher has been charged with 53 counts of impropriety, the district attorney’s office announced Tuesday, a number which may be more than any other American teacher in the last decade. On Monday, Nov. 7, Cindy Garner Clifton, 41, a fifth and sixth grade remediation teacher at Crestview, was arrested after the Tipton County Grand Jury returned an indictment

charging her with 14 counts of statutory rape by an authority figure, 11 counts of aggravated statutory rape, 14 counts of furnishing alcohol to minors and 14 counts of contributing to the delinquency of minors. The alleged incidents took place with at least 11 juvenile victims between the ages of 14-17. In Tennessee, statutory rape by an authority figure is the unlawful sexual penetration of a victim by the defendant or of the defendant by the victim when the victim is 13-18 years

of age, the defendant is four years older than the victim and the defendant was, at the time of the offense, in a position of trust, or had supervisory or disciplinary power over the victim by virtue of the defendant’s legal, professional or occupational status and used the position of trust or power to accomplish the sexual penetration; or the defendant had, at the time of the offense, parental or custodial authority over the victim and used the authority to accomplish the sexual penetration.

This Class C felony is punishable by 3-6 years of imprisonment for each count. Per TCA 39-13-506, aggravated statutory rape is the unlawful sexual penetration of a victim by the defendant, or of the defendant by the victim when the victim is at least 13-18 years of age and the defendant is at least 10 years older than the victim. It is a Class D felony punishable by 2-4 years on each count, per District Attorney General Mike Dunavant. Clifton also faces a year for each of the furnishing alcohol SEE CLIFTON, PAGE A3

Soldier recounts reason for sacrifice By MASTER SERGEANT RANDY “MAC� MCKEE, currently stationed in Central America

When I stand in line to vote, attend a public meeting, or voice my opinion about my government in my local newspaper, I am exercising my rights as an American citizen. Some very famous people wrote and declared these rights and privileges for me, but some much less famous Americans have defended, protected, and preserved the benefits of liberty for over 236 years

since 1775. Many times when I see children playing in the schoolyard or getting on a school bus, marching in the high school band at a Friday night football game, or couples walking hand in hand in the park, or sitting out on a warm

summer night watching Independence Day fireworks; I remember that thousands of veterans before me sacrificed so much to allow me to enjoy these things in peace. And someday, when I retire and I am outside on a cool spring morning with a hot cup of coffee and the smell of fresh cut grass or out on the lake with a line in the water or just enjoying nature or

watching my grandchildren play as my friends and family gather around the fire after thanking God for a good meal and to play some music and sing a little, that I may be allowed to think that my service in uniform had a little something, however small, to do with making our life so peaceful. God bless you and yours and may God continue to bless the Unit-

IN OUR OPINION

The ‘truth’ is our way forward “Truth” is a scary word. While we all may argue there is only one truth, the reality is that people sometimes see the same things differently. This week’s edition of The Leader contains a shocking story on the front page, but what is “the truth?” Honestly, we don’t know and our society and our justice system are the only places to turn, in the end, for truth and justice. The “truth” is that our justice system is flawed, but many of us still believe it is still the best system in the world. It should be noted that an indictment is not a verdict; guilt or innocence will be declared at a later date and we’re only reporting that a grand jury found the evidence in this case compelling enough to decide it merited being heard in a court of law. Those are the facts as we know them. But there’s more going on here than truth and justice. Our community is hurting because it’s closeknit. Many of us know people on one or both sides of this issue, meaning the individuals allegedly victimized and the individual and family of the person who stands accused. We know of the goodness that exists in these people and we’re shocked by these allegations. We know this issue touches on our school system, and many of us are here because we believe our system to be one of the best in West Tennessee. Those “truths” have taken a blow, but we believe they should emerge intact. Tipton County is a great place to live, raise your children and its school system remains rock strong and, yes, safe. It was the concern of a middle school principal for the children and for the school system that led to this investigation in the first place. He proved a willingness to follow the letter of the law and to put the rights of the children ahead of the embarrassment the situation could cause. The children allegedly involved, their families and even the accused and her family all have decency and goodness within them. We cannot lose faith in each other, in our community, in our school system and in the people who’ve lost so much in this process. We’re a community grounded in Christian ideals and we need to tap into that strength that those ideals bring and say a prayer for all involved. No matter where you’re sitting on this issue, the “truth” is, in the end, that Tipton County is a great place to live. The “truth” is that we’ve all got goodness within us. The “truth” is that we’ve got to lean on each other and help whomever we can so we can put this behind us. The “truth” is there’s a lot of hurt out there and our thoughts and prayers are needed now, more than ever.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Priorities for the Farm Bill Dear editor: Last week, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack laid out his priorities for the upcoming Farm Bill. Now – this bill is about a whole lot more than farming: it’s about supporting the jobs of the future, it’s about keeping pace with the changing needs of agriculture and rural America, and it’s about providing a food supply for the nation. As Congress works to write this bill, they will have to look for ways to do more with less. They must simplify programs and find innovative solutions to future challenges while still making targeted investments to keep agriculture productive and rural communities vibrant. It’s our responsibility to strengthen agriculture, which today is a bright spot in the American economy. As they write the bill, Congress should build on that record by focusing on three core principles that have shaped the success of the American farmer: maintaining a strong safety net, supporting sustainable productivity and promoting vibrant markets: In businesses as risky as agriculture, a strong safety net can keep natural disasters from putting farm families out of business. In Tennessee we’ve certainly seen our share of weather-related crop disasters over the past several years. Our safety net should quickly provide assistance to producers of all types and sizes when they need it – and only when they need it. It is important for supporting beginning farmers, who are particularly vulnerable to disasters and other unpredictable events. At the same time farmers, ranchers and growers must be able to produce an affordable, quality product year after year. That means continuing investments in research to maintain our farmers’ leadership as the most productive in the world and investing in conservation to support healthy, productive soil and a plentiful water supply. Finally, the Farm Bill should continue to promote vibrant, fair and diverse markets – at home and abroad – for farmers, ranchers and growers of all types and sizes. We should continue efforts to expanded markets for ‘Grown in America’ goods abroad, which will help support record agricultural exports and more than 1 million American jobs this year. At the same time, we should look to expand opportunities here at home for producers interested in local and regional markets. And the Farm Bill legislation must address the THE LEADER USPS 136-120 “Tipton County’s NEWSPAPER Since 1886” 2001 Highway 51 South Covington, Tennessee 38019 Published Every Thursday by Tipton County Newspapers, LLC

needs of rural America. It needs to continue to support our efforts to develop a renewable industry that will improve incomes for farmers, create jobs in rural America and increase our national security. In the past two years, USDA has helped create or save more than 250,000 rural jobs. The Farm Bill should improve rural development programs to make the federal government the best partner possible for people and businesses in rural communities. That means making it easier for people to access USDA support, ensuring that emerging rural businesses have the capital they need to grow and create jobs, and investing in communities pursuing regional growth. Today the future for American agriculture is bright – as is the future of our rural communities in Tennessee and across the country. We must build on this positive outlook and prepare for the challenges and opportunities ahead. This Farm Bill should help move our nation and our economy forward: creating jobs, providing a safety net for millions of Americans, supporting rural communities and building on the incredible success, productivity and strength of American agriculture. Sincerely, Gene Davidson State Executive Director USDA Farm Service Agency – Tennessee

Praise for Baptist Tipton

the citizens in Tipton County. I was recently hospitalized in the Baptist Hospital Tipton from Oct. 16-21, 2011. I want to thank Mr. Skipper Bondurant and the entire hospital staff for the excellent care that I received while I was there. I was admitted to the hospital via the emergency room on a Sunday night. The emergency room doctors, nurses, technicians and staff recognized my condition and immediately took care of me (I did not have to wait in the waiting room). I could not breathe and I had a build up of fluid on my lungs that had developed after two open heart surgeries the previous month. I was so sick and scared to death that I was not going to live. This wonderful group of caregivers’ immediate attention and action made me relax and I could soon breathe better. However, it was determined that I had a lot of fluid buildup on my lungs and I was admitted to the hospital for further care. On Monday morning, I met two of the best doctors at the hospital, Dr. Kenneth Afenya and Dr. Syed Zaidi. For the next five days I was under their excellent care and the good Lord’s watch. During those days I experienced the best nursing care and respiratory care that I’ve ever had in any hospital. Because of my weight loss from the open heart surgery, the kitchen staff and dieticians worked very hard in preparing my meals and trying to get me to eat. Again, thank you to the doctors, nurses, technicians, staff, kitchen and housekeeping for your excellent care and concern for me. This was the best experience that I have ever had in any hospital I’ve been in. Sincerely, Andy Reynolds

the National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits lists more than 50,000 individuals who are owed benefits from 401(k)s, profit-sharing plans or IRAs and either can’t be reached or don’t respond to inquiries. But if you hold all your retirement accounts in one place, you may be less likely to “misplace” them than if you kept them in several different financial institutions. Just as summer turns to autumn and autumn turns to winter, the seasons of your life follow one another in seemingly rapid succession. So when you enter your retirement season, make sure you’re prepared — and one way to help that preparation is to consider consolidating your retirement accounts.

SR Christian T. Erwin Navy Seaman Recruit Christian T. Erwin, son of Terri L. Tiner of Munford and Philip T. Erwin, of Bartlett recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Erwin completed a variety of training, which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” Battle Stations is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly ‘’Navy’’ flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor. Erwin is a 2011 graduate of Munford High School.

Hello everybody! Sure hope you’re all enjoying this wonderful weather we’re having once again! I love it! Its so nice. I could handle….oh,…365 days a year with weather such as this! Hope you all survived the time change last week. It’s kind of messed with everybody’s heads for a few days but I think we all bounced back. Please continue to keep our dear Ms. Tricky Hoffman in your prayers! She is still recovering in Millington Rehab due to surgery on a broken bone. We cannot wait until she can come home and join us again. We love you Ms. Tricky. Come home soon. Our Halloween party went off great! Thanks so much to Taylor for the cake and all hard work you put in. The residents sure seemed to enjoy themselves. We bobbed for apples, had a best costume contest and shared together a very unique pumpkin cake made of cupcakes, (it was so adorable!), and some

punch and nuts! I cannot believe I forgot to say thank you last week to Chris and Lenora Meyers and their youth group from Rosemark Church of Christ. Oh my goodness. They were all so very awesome. They came in here like Mr. Clean and cleaned this place up in four hours. Thank you so much everyone, the place looks GREAT. They came last year too. It was a perfect time this year as we were without a maintenance man. There were two guys (adults) that climbed up on a ladder all day and cleaned out the gutters from pine needles. That happens every year. Thanks so much guys. Our absolute deepest sympathy goes out to Mr. Jimmy Lovett’s family!! To Ms. Betty, Darlene, Tina and Regina and all those precious grandkids and great-grand kids!! You are all in our prayers! Ms. Betty and Darlene both work here at Dunlap, so it was a huge loss to all of us! Everyone one that has

Hi everyone ~ The fall foliage has finally hit its peak. After the rain this week and somewhat cooler temps, they should all be on the ground very soon I suppose. Speaking of temperatures, while Charlie and I were out and about on Monday, the car temperature read 79 degrees. Only six weeks to Christmas. It's hard to believe. This past week I went with my sister, Jackie Hicks, to find and purchase her a wedding dress. She had been told where to go from a friend and sure enough it was right there waiting for her. It absolutely beautiful. They are doing some alterations on it. Mr. Stan won't believe his eyes. But I think he knows what a jewel he already has. This daylight savings time is taking a little adjustment for me. By the time we got to McDonald's for breakfast, some of our friends were already leaving. They were smart to keep their regular schedule. However, Mr. Al Chaney waited on us. This is not his normal routine, but he had been to the doctor in Brighton that day. We sat and had breakfast and coffee and good conversation with him. Well, November is a family birthday month for us. My grandson, Luke Scott, on the 11th; my daughterin-law Stephanie Scott on the 13th; and last but not least, my dear husband Charlie on the 15th. Think we can to one big party. Happy birthday to all of you with loads of love! Salem Presbyterian Worship is at 11 a.m. and Charles Todd is minister. The operation Christmas child boxes are due on Nov. 14. There will be a baby shower for Angie Morgan on Nov. 19 from 2-4 p.m. at the church. It is a boy. All ladies are invited. If you would like to purchase a poinsettia, please see Beth Regen or Lisa Simpson. Deadline is Nov. 16. Sharon Presbyterian Worship is at 9 a.m. and Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. We are always thankful for our Dunlap residents who are able to be with us. Please remember Raymond Griffin as he had a recent and is having some difficulty. Covington Church of Christ Worship is at 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. each Sunday. Bible study is Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and Wednesday at 7 p.m. Brother Mike Rogers is our minister and Brother Jeff Phillips our associate minister and youth director. We are always so thankful for all of our visitors. We were blessed with the baptism of little Miss Christina Evans last week. Ann and Billy Chapman's supper club will meet at their home Saturday at 6 p.m. Live support will be going to New Pathways Children's Home in Melber, Ky., on Saturday the 19th. See Ken Bringle for more details. Don't forget our clothing giveaway this Saturday at the church from 9 a.m. to noon. We extend our sympathy to Judy Dunaway in the death of her brother-in-law Jimmy Lovett. Happy birthdays this week go to Marlene Brown, Faye Shankle, Debbie Otts and Mr. Frank Brown. Hope they are the greatest. Happy anniversary this week to Chris and Trudy Max. We had some special people to come forward last week asking for prayers of their brothers and sisters in Christ. Our prayers are with you all. In closing, please let's remember Veteran's Day on Friday. All of our military are a blessing in our lives. Please continue to remember them all in your prayers. Austin Peay Elementary will be having a military program Friday at 1 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend. You don't want to miss it, I assure you. Have a great week!

ever met Mr. Jimmy knows what a sweet man he was! I loved him a whole year before I even met him, just from phone conversations! He had a heart for people in general. If you were down, Mr. Jimmy would pick you up. He loved his children and his dear wife of 51 years. He loved to sing and make everyone feel good about themselves! There’s no doubt in anybody’s mind that he is in the arms of the Lord as we speak. Rest in peace now Mr. Jimmy, we’ll all miss you. Ms. Betty Lovett and her family would like to say “thank you” to the community for all the love you showed their family at this difficult time. The prayers, the cards, all the great food, and the phone calls have made this hard time a little easier with the loss of Mr. Jimmy Lovett, wonderful husband, Daddy, Paw-Paw Jim, friend. Until next week, we pray you have a great one and God bless you. Don’t forget to give out hugs.

Hello dear readers: This Saturday, Nov. 12, we will be having our Harvest Fest at Elm Grove Methodist Church. It will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.. We will have vegetable and potato soup and pimento sandwiches and dessert. Soup will be sold by the quart. There will also be other sale items including baked goods and fried pies. Y'ALL COME ... Members of the congregation - prayer concerns: Bertha Wright, Dewey Rice, Annette Hanks, Charlotte Curtis, & Bobbie Waits. A couple of weeks ago, there were five deer in our yard. Two mamas, two babies, and one big

buck. They were so beautiful. The buck was on gurad. The babbies were going down to the apple trees. But, the daddy deer said no ... and they all left the yard. There were plenty of apples on the ground ... they could have had a good easy meal. The last few days have been so beautiful...we have been working out in our yard. We have had a another big truck load of dirt dumped in our back yard... we are looking for a big tractor to spread this dirt. ~ Love & Prayers.

Hello Friends, The fall continues to express its beauty. I just reel in the beauty of the colors when driving down the road. Over at my Motherin-law's house the maple trees in the front yard are like a canopy of sunshine in the bright yellow display. The two maples were planted many years ago and represent Neal and his sister, Jane Carol. Simply gorgeous. The Brighton Football team did it. We play White Station at home this Friday for the second round play off. Please come on out and support our team! It is truly football weather and the excitement is definitely in the air. Don't forget the flag retirement this Friday at dusk. It will be at the Brighton Boy Scout hut. Happy Birthday to Jamie Waits, Margie Stafford, Will Owen, Arron Graves, Jennifer Castellaw, Jamie Cousar, Debbie Taylor, Billie Green, and of course my sweetie, Neal Simonton. He has the big six-o this year. It is amazing that he has reached this milestone and looks like he is about twenty years younger. No wonder everyone thinks I am the elder. BUT I AM YOUNGER than he is! Ha ha! We did celebrate Neal's birthday early at his sister, Jane Carol, and her husband, Jim's, beautiful home in Arlington. Everyone was able to come except Connor. He had to work. And of course Danielle and her family in Hawaii. We had a super time and even the children we exceptionally good.

The twins are so good and happy. CH and Staci are really good parents. So patient! Hannah Mae and Ryan have reached an agreement on a name, Ruby Kate. What a sweet name and so excited for her. She is really looking with child. I just want everyone to know how blessed I am to have such a wonderful family. And I know my Heavenly Father watches over all of us. He has given me a life of many lessons for growth and because of this I am able to use the wisdom I have gained to help me press on and endure. ~ Love you all, Debe

Greetings. ~ First some corrections from the last time. I do apologize for them. We all are sorry because of the misprints. She is a sweet, godly lady. However, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known, especially in the missionary circle, president Mary Burton, not Rev. Mary Burton. Also, Rolanda Davis won the flat screen, not LaRue Albritton. Classic Sea Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award was accepted by owners Mr. and Mrs. Avery Adams and family. Happy birthday this week to: my brother, now of North Carolina, Sgt. Ret.

listed in Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cavalry of Tipton County. He penned his recollections of the early War days after the conflict: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went on to Columbus, Kentucky and enlisted there on the 5th of October 1861, having been on the road from Sandy Point five weeks. I was sworn in by Colonel Bradford in General Gideon J. Pillowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office as a member of what was than known as the Logwood Battalion but it was later made a regiment under the command of Colonel W. H. Jackson. I was in Company B. of the 7th Tennessee Cavalry. The captain of my company was J. B. (P.) Russell and the lieutenants were H. T. Sale, Ike Stinson and Pete Wynn. H. T. Sale was one of the men who had come with me from Texas. Just one month after I en-

listed the battle of Belmont, Missouri was fought. Belmont is just across the river from Columbus, Kentucky, and while my company was not among those who were taken across to engage in the battle, I saw it all. General Grant came down from Cairo, Illinois but troops enough were taken across the river from Columbus by General Pillow and General Polk to send him hurrying back to his gunboats at Cairo.

Drawings for annual Thanksgiving baskets from the Jolly Cortera Club of Jamestown will be Nov. 20 in the lovely home of member Mildred Sherrell of Covington, who will also be hostess for Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. You still have time to get in on this one. Contact LaRue Albritton, JCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president, or a JC member. Tickets are only $1. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got two chances to win. Isiah Burton, Sr., has made it back home on Nov. 2 from rehab in Millington. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite happy to be back home. All of our prayers have been answered. Let us continue keeping he and his lovely wife Willie Mae in our prayers. Our prayers are still with our regulars: Vennard Big Boy Burton, Jennie Stewart, Bessie Cobb, Troy and Doris King, Posey Reed, Robin Reed, Willie Reed, Ruth Alston, Carlotta Jones, David and Charlene Sneed, Connie and

Richard Coe and family, John Bunton, Rev. Richard Coe and family, Eugene Baker, Eula Culbreath and family and Katarene Harber. My church, North Star Community pastor Steven Miller, will be feeding families immediately after morning worship on Nov. 20. Worship begins at 11 a.m. The annual event is sponsored by the NSC Church. This is all for this week. Remember, as we prepare to enter into the upcoming holidays, putting others before self is the only way for you to enjoy the full meaning of giving.

Battle of Belmont, Missouri Tipton Countians got their first encounter with General U. S. Grant, in the Battle of Belmont fought on November 7, 1861. The regiments and companies of General John L. T. Sneedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mississippi River

Defense Brigadeâ&#x20AC;? stationed back in the summer at Randolph were conspicuous in the battle, especially the 154th, 13th and 2nd (Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) Tennessee Infantry Regiments. Grantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forces landed north of Belmont from their river steamers. They were successful in driving the Confederates from their camp early in the engagement. Later in the day Confederate reinforcements were sent across the river to the embattled Southerners. The heavy artillery of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Southern Guardsâ&#x20AC;? (men from Tipton County) fired their large cannon at the enemy from the bluffs at Columbus, Kentucky. The battle turned in favor of the South and the Federals were driven to their boats. The Con-

federates lost 642 casualties out of 4,000 engaged while the Federals lost 607 men out of 3,114 engaged. A lady from Mason Depot wrote to her sister describing the battle: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect ere this you have read of the Confederate victory at Bellemonte, Missouri... I have so many acquaintances and relations, it makes my heart quell to think of that battle. Adjutant John William Somervill (Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cavalry, Logwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tennessee Cavalry) was there and did fight. Lieutenant William Hunt of Captain Triplettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company (Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2d Tennessee Infantry) led Triplettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company for him, and fought like a lion, following the enemy to their boats who fled in wild confusion. He came home wounded

by the wind of a ball in his side .... Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cavalry was drawn up waiting to receive orders on the riverbank at Columbus but General Polk gave no order to cross. They witnessed the fight and cheered and hallowed, and acted like mad men so eager were they. Hill is a neighbor, and I have many friends in his

Gainsville Alumni group disbanding due to illness By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com In the mid-1990s, a group of former Gainsville School students began meeting at the Frazier Alumni Center to fellowship and reminisce of time spent at the now historic school once located in the Gainsville community in Mason. After forming a committee, the group would meet occasionally at Frazier and Hopewell Baptist Church in Mason. The late Minnie B. Jones Jarmon was instrumental in those early years in gathering the names of former teachers and students who were called and invited to join the alumni group. Feaster Williamson was selected to be the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first president. After several years, Williamson resigned as president and Fletcher Dick-

erson was elected to serve as president with Ethel White Hayes of Ripley as vice-president. Gladys Pugh Lewis served as secretary for many years; Aubry Pugh was treasurer, as well as Barbara Jones Bell. Hayes also served the group as correspondence secretary and the late Thomas Degraffreed was the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prayer leader, with Casey Dickerson fulfilling that position after Degraffreedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing. The group would host programs and banquets for its alumni with members taking turns in presenting programs to the group. Former teacher Nannie L. Jones Johnson was one of the speakers, as well as Williamson, Rev. Vernon White of Akron, Ohio, the late Rev. Stowers of Chicago, Rev. T. E. White, Jr. of Jackson, Mr. James Perry of St. Louis, Rev. Alston Wayne Hayes of Nashville

and R. L. Jones, son of Rev. Louis Jones, formerly principal of Gainsville School. Odessa Rose of Nashville and Nadine Dickerson were in charge of planning the reunion meals, with Ethel Mae Jones serving as caterer along with Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Williams. Regular alumni attendees included Feaster Williamson, Aubry Pugh, Fletcher Dickerson, Eubus Jackson, Ethel Hayes, Gladys Lewis, Odessa Rose, Barbara Bell, the late Thomas Degraffreed, Vernada Gilliam Degraffreed, Ethel Tipton, Nettie Tipton, the late Elizabeth White Johnson, Nadine and Helen Dickerson, Walter Lee Jones and wife of Memphis and Ruth Pugh Singleton of Dyersburg. Singleton also served as musician and Helen Dickerson and Ethel Tipton helped with the church programs. Sis-

Money and items were collected and counted every day. The homerooms raising the most money and turning in the most items will be rewarded with a pizza party. The winning homerooms were Mrs. Brandy Prince and Mrs. Patsy Pinner. On Friday, Nov. 4, the eighth grade honor society members traveled to Memphis to make the donations to St. Jude and the Ronald McDonald House.

Achieving the pinnacle of excellence By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com Its esteemed designation belongs to a president, numerous astronauts, generals, admirals, CEOs, judges, lawyers, TV personalities and many more. Its name is synonymous with dedication and honor; since the inception of the Boy Scouts in 1911, less than three percent of scouts have obtained its rank. The first was 17-year-old Arthur Rose Eldred in August 1912 and one of its newest is 14-year-old William “Will” Lee Kimes, a freshman at Brighton High School and now, an Eagle Scout. Recently honored at his Eagle Scout ceremony, Will, the son of Charles and Arlys Kimes, has been active in scouting since he was 7-years-old and loves the life exposure he has gotten as a scout. “I enjoy the camping and being with the other scouts,” said Will, a member of Troop 66. “I have learned various skills from working on multiple merit badges and I’ve learned how to be a leader by taking courses like the National Youth Leadership training that the Boy Scouts of America has to offer scouts.” The path to become an Eagle Scout requires dedication, perseverance and determination and the completion of six requirements. To become an Eagle Scout, a candidate must demonstrate a period of activeness in his troop after achieving the rank of Life Scout. He must demonstrate that he lives by the principles of the Scout Oath and Law. He must earn at least a total of 21 merit badges, he must serve in a position of authority while a Life Scout, he must plan, develop and demonstrate leadership while performing a service project and he must prepare a statement of ambitions and life purpose and hold a scoutmasters conference, all before his 18th birthday. Not one to let the difficulty of his decision sway him, Will also looked to his future when making the decision to become an Eagle Scout. “I knew it would take a lot of work and a lot of scouts don’t continue through with their Eagle Scout rank because of the effort it takes to get there,” said Will. “But I also knew it would look good on my job applications and help me in my career. Being a scout and an Eagle Scout is very important and what I’ve learned in scouting will take me far in life.” Will chose Brighton Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church as the recipient of his Eagle Scout project.

It’s a busy Tuesday morning around here. Clint is scrapping cotton, James is cutting stalks and the Coop is here spreading lime. And as usual, I’m on the computer! This week’s Farm Report: We are still scrapping cotton. Week before last Clint took a big week-long trip to North Dakota hunting and said on the way he saw more corn than he’ll ever pick in his lifetime and “millions of acres of sugar beets.” He shot ducks and geese and was 39 miles from Canada. I’m glad he got to make this trip of a lifetime and that he got home safely. We did get a quarter inch of rain last Thursday, then it was foggy Friday and even foggier Saturday. Not conducive for picking cotton. And since Sunday I keep waking up an hour earlier than I want to. Courtney Gurley and I hosted a Scentsy Party last night with a big crowd and a lot of fun. Too many burners and scents to pick from. We had veggies and dip, chips and dip, chips and salsa, peanut butter cupcakes, and chocolate chip and lemon cookies. Fun night. This Friday night is our Ladies Dinner and Movie Night at the Covington Church of Christ. Going to see Adam Sandler in “Jack and Jill”. Looks hilarious and it’s PG. Shirley Cook is in rehab now and doing well, Jeff Hanks is walking without a walker after his surgery and Todd Townsend continues to recover from his fall at home. Getting out in his truck some now, I hear. Grant Edmonds continues in rehab. All these and so many others are in my prayers, as well as all our servicemen and women. And now the American voters as we prepare for the 2012 elections. Sympathy is exetended to the friends and family of Jimmy Lovett, who passed away last week. They have my prayers. We had 57 folks to go a retreat at West Kentucky Youth Camp last weekend. Our singing was a little quieter Sunday morning at church. Glad they had fun and are back safely. Happy Birthday this week goes to Marlene Brown on Nov. 7th, to Faye Shankle on the 9th, to Debbie Otts on the 10th and to Frank Brown on the 12th! Happy Anniversary to Chris and Trudy Max on Nov. 9th This week’s Famer’s Almanac Quote: “To remove a wart, apply a paste of aspirin and water and wrap in an airtight covering.

ing the project Noah’s Ark Clean Up, he and his team repaired, replaced and cleaned up the church’s playground area. He spent many hours planning and developing his eagle project before he even put it in motion and dedicated more than 284 hours to the completion of it. “I picked this project because it would make it safer for the children that play in this area,” he said. Expressing his gratitude, Will acknowledges he couldn’t have made the journey without the assistance and support of his family. “Without the help of my family, friends and fellow scouts it would have taken much longer to receive my Eagle Scout status,” said Will. “I want to thank my parents and all the scouts and friends that helped me on my project and to Home Depot for donating the materials I needed to complete my project. I am very grateful for everyone’s support and faith in me.” “We are so very proud of Will’s achievement,” said his mother, Arlys Kimes, proudly. “He started scouting as a shy little boy and has developed into a confident young man. Scouting has given him the opportunity to gain real life experience while participating in scouting activities, including while working on merit badges. He has made life-long friends and has learned how to be a leader while having fun. Even though he has reached the top of the summit, Will still plans to stay active in scouting. “I want to help the other scouts achieve their Eagle Scout goal as well,” he said. “I have also joined Venturing Crew 1420 in Covington to expand my scouting.”

ROUND TWO: OBION COUNTY AT COVINGTON • WHITE STATION AT BRIGHTON • FRIDAY • 7 P.M.

BHS, CHS play for spot in quarterfinals By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com When round two of the state football playoffs begins Friday night, Brighton and Covington will have a chance to do something neither program has done in a while: advance to the quarterfinals. The last time the Cardinals advanced past the second round was 2003. That season Brighton finished the regular season 4-6 before upsetting Hillcrest and Obion County Central, which set up a matchup against Covington in the quarterfinals.

Covington won 34-6. The Chargers haven't made it to the quarterfinals since 2006, the final year under head coach Jay Murphree. Covington went 10-3 that season, losing in the quarterfinals to Dyersburg, the team the Chargers beat last Friday in round one. It was Covington's second loss of that season to Dyersburg. Tomorrow night in round two of the Class 4A playoffs the Chargers (9-2) will face another familiar foe when Obion County Central comes to town. In Week 8, Covington trailed Obion County 22-7 in the second quarter be-

fore rallying for a wild 50-36 win over the Rebels (9-2). Obion County quarterback Trey Phipps had a big game against the Covington defense, passing for 259 yards. The Rebels' rushing attack produced 218 yards. But the Rebels defense had no answer for Covington's running game, which amassed 531 yards. Terrence Pierson, Johnston White and Colliar Robinson each had over 100 yards. “Neither defense played well in that game,” Covington head coach Marty Wheeler said. “We will do what we

BRIGHTON 21 SOUTHWIND 18

Cardinals dispatch Southwind By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Brighton exorcised some demons Friday night. After three straight years of losing in the first round of the playoffs, Brighton got it done against Southwind in the opening round of the Class 6A state playoffs. “It was a good win,” said Brighton head coach Will Wolfe, whose Cardinals defeated the Jaguars 21-18 in front of a large home crowd. “It wasn't pretty though.” "We just Trailing 18-14, Brighton put toknew we gether a 70-yard scoring drive that had to was punctuated punch it by an 11-yard touchdown run in, put the by Antonio Dickpoints on erson with 9:22 left in the game. the board Southwind (7and get 4) got the ball twice more. ahead.” The first drive - QB Brady ended when Devante McGwire Stewart intercepted a Darius Henderson pass at the Brighton 1-yard line. The Brighton defense forced a Southwind punt on the Jaguars' next drive, and that proved to the last defensive stand Brighton (10-1) would need. Greg Starks and Dickerson each came up with a first down run and Starks moved the chains again with a 20-yard run to take the final 4:01 off the clock. Brighton, winners of 10 straight, will host White Station, a 31-30 winner over Millington, in round two Friday night. “It feels good,” said Dickerson, who finished with 69 yards on 27 carries. “We knew we could win. Penalties

Our defense will have to step up and stop their skill players for us to advance.” Brighton, a 21-18 winner over Southwind last week in round one of the Class 6A playoffs, will host White Station, a team the Cardinals (10-1) have never faced. The last time Brighton played a second-round playoff game, most of the Cardinals' players were in elementary school. Brighton coach Will Wolfe said he SEE PLAYOFFS, PAGE B2

With 1:51 left in the game and the score knotted at 14 Friday night at home, Covington took possession at their own 47 following a Dyersburg punt. Covington's defense had just made the stand of the night, holding the Trojans to a three-and-out after T.A. Watson had pinned them deep with a punt downed at the DHS 1-yard line.

The Trojans attempted a comeback but had it snuffed out by a Terence Pierson interception at the Covington 30 on the game’s final play. It was the game’s only turnover. Covington (9-2) hosts the Obion County Central Rebels (9-2) tomorrow at 7 p.m. in round two of the TSSAA Class 4A playoffs. “We made too many mistakes on offense, “ said Wheeler, whose team was flagged for 12 penalties against Dyersburg (8-3), including eight for false starts on offense. “I have no explanaSEE CHS, PAGE B2

Henry County ends Munford's season in Paris Turnovers prove costly for Cougars By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Munford kept things close for a while Friday night in Paris, but in the end, Henry County's vaunted rushing attack proved to be too much for the Cougars to overcome. The Patriots rolled up 252 rushing yards and took control of the Class 5A first round playoff game in the third quarter en route to a 42-14 win. Munford (5-6), making its first playoff appearance since 2007, was trailing 28-7 when Antonio Moore hauled in

what appeared to be a touchdown pass late in the second quarter. A penalty nullified the touchdown, however, and Henry County (11-0) scored twice more before Munford got back on the board on a Stephen Stewart 1-yard touchdown run with 5:16 left in the game. “I thought we had a good game plan,” said Munford coach Matt Saunders. “The kids went out there and executed it … We had a few turnovers though. You hate to go up there and leave points on the field.” Henry County, which is ranked No.

1 in the state in Class 5A, intercepted five Munford passes, recovered a fumbled punt return and also recovered an onside kick on the opening play of the game. That recovery led to a Shaquille Allen 2-yard touchdown run. Later in the quarter, Dennis Tharpe intercepted a Stewart pass and returned it 37 yards to give Henry County a 14-0 lead. Munford cut the lead in half when Stewart hit Cedric Williams on a 20yard touchdown pass with 1:53 left in the first quarter. But Najee Ray and Caleb Counce each came up with touchdown runs for Henry County before halftime to push the lead to 28-7.

Munford actually had more first downs (16-14) than Henry County and almost as much yardage (329-302), but the turnovers proved to be very costly. “You can't do that against the No. 1 team in the state,” Saunders said. “Our guys played very hard until the end though.” Munford played the final two and half quarters without wideout Hunter Harden, who was slammed hard to the ground after a second-quarter catch and had to be carted off the field. He was eventually transported to Vanderbilt University Hospital and diagnosed with a cracked C-5 vertebrae and a concussion. He's up and walking SEE MHS, PAGE B9

Cards hit the court with new coach By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com With the return of leading scorers Demetrius Dyson, Jonathan Stark and Ricky Foster from a team that won 23 games and advanced to the region semifinals last year, one might think that first-year Brighton coach Darryle Rogers could just roll out the ball and tell his players to do their thing.

Not so, says Rogers. “We're still starting from scratch,” Rogers said, “even though the ingredients are here … But we've got some experienced guys that have a prior knowledge of things I'm trying to do. I've still got to put in some pieces.” Dyson, a 6-5 junior wing whose name can be found on all the major recruiting websites, averaged 15 points a game last year. Foster, a senior who won't join the team

until football season is over, does a little bit of everthing. Stark, a junior, runs the point. Throw in experienced guys like seniors Tevin Bradley, Eddie Middlebrooks and Dedrick Muex, plus up-and-coming freshman Lorenzo Hunt, a 6-2 forward, and optimism his high among Brighton's supporters and players. “Our goals are to win district, advance further and become a SEE HOOPS, PAGE B9

CHS took the opening kickoff and went 91 yards in just five plays with White getting the first score at the 9:21 mark from 59 yards out. He had a total of 179 yards and two scores on 16 carries. The Trojans had a disastrous first possession that featured five penalties. Covington got the ball back at the 17 and was in the end zone in two plays. Britt Dunn scored on a 1-yard sneak. Colliar Robinson set him up with an 82-yard run from scrimmage. With barely seven minutes gone, CHS led 14-0 and looked to be in a romp. It was not so. Following a short kickoff, the Trojans marched

54 yards to cut the lead to 14-7 with 2:28 left in the first period. Sharquawn Henderson took it in from six yards out for the TD. The Charger offense began to sputter with three false starts in the next possession, forcing a punt. Starting from the DHS 44, the Trojans scored in eight plays with Willie Toles burning the Chargers from 39 yards out at the 6:00 minute mark. From there to gamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; end, the defenses took charge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made some defensive adjustments at half time and the kids responded,â&#x20AC;? Wheeler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tackled better and got to the ball better in the second half and that made the difference. It became a game of field position and we won that battle in the second half.â&#x20AC;? The Chargers put up impressive offensive

I know the seniors are really happy about it â&#x20AC;Ś We just knew we had to punch it in, put the points on the board and get ahead.â&#x20AC;? Brighton took the lead in the first quarter when Stewart hooked up with Ricky Foster on a 51-yard touchdown pass. Foster injured his ankle on the play though and did not return. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ricky is a huge part of our team,â&#x20AC;? Wolfe said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way they battled back after losing him speaks volumes about the kids and these assistant coaches and how hard they work.â&#x20AC;? Southwind answered with touchdown runs of 28 and 12 yards by Cedric Miller in the first quarter. Dickerson scored on a 2-yard run midway through the second quarter to put Brighton ahead 14-12, but Henderson hit Artavious Hawkins on a 16-yard scoring pass to put the Jaguars ahead 1812 at the half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These players never quit,â&#x20AC;?

Brighton quarterback Brady Stewart threw three interceptions, including one early in the third quarter at the Southwind 25-yard line. A Dickerson fumble midway through the third quarter was also costly. But Stewart came up big when it mattered most.

476-4000 COMMENTARY

The hiker and the snake

By DANIEL DALTON Gilt Edge Church of Christ

The story is told of a man who was hiking high up in the mountains of Colorado one fall day. The higher he hiked the more and more snow he saw and the colder the weather got. He was not worried because he had brought the proper equipment and was prepared to camp out and hike in the bitter weather. One day as he sat down on a log to eat lunch, he saw a snake out of the corner of his eye. He leaped back in fear, and then noticed that the snake was not hardly moving. As he stood there and watched, the snake turned to him and said, It is so cold up here. Would you please carry me down with you so that I don't die in the snow? The man responded, No, I wont carry you down the mountain, because just as soon as I pick you up you will bite me. The snake very quickly agreed that if the man would carry him down, he wouldn't bite him, so the man picked the snake up and put him in his pocket. A few days later as the man hiked down into the warmer areas, he reached into his pocket to pull

the snake out. All at once the snake latched onto his hand and bit him. The man threw the snake down in disgust and said, I thought we had an agreement. If I carried you down, you wouldnt bite me. The snake replied, yes, I know we had an agreement, but you knew what I was when you picked me up. So many times we treat Satan in the same way as this man did. At first we run in horror from sin and evil and refuse to pick it up, but the longer we sit and look at it the more appealing it becomes. Before we know it we are carrying around our pet sin in our pocket thinking that we will get by without getting bit. What we don't realize, is that when we are carrying around our pet sin, we have already been bit. Consider some of the damage that is done by just one sin in our lives. First of all, that one sin separates us from God (Isaiah 59:1-2). We may plan to one day get our lives right, but we are playing a risky game with our souls. This is a game that we cannot afford to lose. Also, our little pet sins set an example for others that may lead them astray also. How many teenagers have been convinced to do

something wrong just because of their friends? How many toddlers grew up and became involved in the same sinful activities of their parents because they simply followed the example of their heroes? How many faithful Christians have been led astray into the world simply by following someones example? Our example is a powerful thing, and when we are involved in even one sin, we destroy our example and influence people in the wrong direction. We need to realize that Satan is the father of lies and deceit (John 8:44). He will do everything he can to make sin look innocent and harmless, when the reality is they will destroy our soul in the end. The reality is we know what Satan is. We know he is constantly trying to deceive us and lead us astray (1 Peter 5:8). We know that any association with sin will cause us to be lost for eternity (2 Corinthians 5:10). Proverbs 6:27 says, Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Let us realize the dangers of sin and flee from it. Let us put sin out of our lives and keep our lives pure.

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF OFFICE OF STATE AND LOCAL FINANCE CONCERNING THE PROPOSED ISSUANCE OF Waterworks and Gas Revenue Bonds, Series 2011 First Utility District of Tipton County First Utility District of Tipton County (the "District") submitted a plan dated October 24, 2011, as required by Tennessee code annotated section 9-21-1003 regarding the proposed issuance of $1,200,000 waterworks and gas revenue refunding bonds, series 2011 (the "series 2011 bonds"). The series 2011 bonds will currently refund $1,215,000 waterworks and gas revenue refunding bonds, series 2002 (this "series 2002 bonds"). The plan of refunding (the "Plan"), was prepared with the assistance of the district's underwriter, Duncan-Williams, Inc. and it's bond counsel, Butler, Snow, O'Mara, Stevens & Canada, PLLC. The series 2011 bonds may be structured in a different manner than proposed; pricing at a premium and/or with a different principal payment structure. The District plans to issue the Series 2011 Bonds by negotiated sale. The financial information presented in the plan may or may not reflect the current or future financial condition of the District. The District's operating income for fiscal year 2010 was $497,204. Net non-operation revenues were-$156,431 consisting primarily of a debt service interest payment of $174,780. Before capital contributions, the District's change in net $340,773. Operation income should at least equal a utility's debt service (principal and interest payment). Debt service for fiscal year 2010 was $372,502. The plan estimates the following concerning the Series 2011 Bonds: The proposed issue will be sold in the bond market. The proposed issue will amortize over 8 years with approximately level debt amortization. The refunding plan reflects an estimated net present value savings of $56,173 or 4.62% of the $1,215,000 refunded principal. The estimated savings are achieved by reducing the current average coupon of the Series 2002 Bonds from 2011 Bonds 5.095% to an estimated average coupon of 2.634% for Source and Uses the Series 2011 Bonds.

By Arnold Bull Hunting Season is here. The 2011 Hunting Season (when you refer to the hunting season, it is always in capitals because it is that important) has started off with a big bang and “look out.” Squirrel season was a huge success with limits abounding, next came dove season, which is gaining popularity right along with the corn being planted. Then “the season” started. Of course, I am referring to Tennessee deer season. First was archery/ deer season (Sept. 24- Oct. 28) and then two weekends ago we had juvenile deer hunt , a season of two days, Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 29-30). If you are a youngster

and you missed the first juvenile deer hunt, there will be another scheduled Jan. 7-8, 2012. We had a bunch of kids out to the club for the weekend hunt and they were all Jake Yoes, Tipton County game warden’s hunter safety class students. Jake and his boss, Wade Hendren from Lauderdale County, stopped by to see how the students were faring. We had Bryan Elzie hunting with his dad, Keith Elzie; Sam Childers hunting with his grand daddy, Roy Wrather; Joseph Auger hunting with his dad, Joe Auger; and Grayson Huggins hunting with his dad, Bill Dan Huggins. All in all, it was a good hunt for the youngsters and I am sure they will be back in January. This past weekend

Tucker Fore, 8, the son of Shannon and Shelley Fore, recently killed this 10-point buck while hunting in Fayette County with his father and Dannis Harrod.

The Munford United Soccer Club will be holding tryouts for the Under-14 and Under-16 girls age groups Nov. 12 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Crestview Middle School soccer field. For more information, log on to www.munfordunited.com, or contact Bobby Chapman at 487-7177 or rchap1963@aol.com. The Covington Parks and Recreation is now accepting registration for youth and adult basketball leagues. The youth league is for ages 5-18 with play beginning on Jan. 6, 2012. Adult leagues are also forming. Registration is now being accepted for a women’s league, men’s competitive and recreational leagues and also for a 3-on-3 league, playing half-court for those 30 and over looking for some exercise. Cost for each program is $40 per player. For more information, call 476-3734. The Covington Parks and Recreation co-ed volleyball league is now accepting team registration. The registration fee is $40 per person. For more information, call 476-3734.

Continued from B1 team,” said Dyson, who’s listed as a 3-star recruit on rivals.com. “The guys are practicing hard,” said Stark. “Coach has come in here and really changed our attitudes.” Lady Cardinals coach Ronnie Lanier will be facing a different situation. In his second year on the job he will be hitting the court without the services of four starters from last year’s team that advanced to the region quarterfinals. Nevertheless, he believes this year’s team has the potential to be better. “The girls had a really good summer,” said Lanier. “We’re six months ahead of where we were last year. They already know what I’m asking of them.” Senior guards Raven Campbell and Ashley Bolden have the most experience on the roster. Laken Jackson and Lindy Lane, both seniors, bring leadership to the team. Juniors Hailley Sheppard, Alaina Bierdz, Katelyn Price and McCallie Ruffin are also expected to make an impact. “I’m really looking forward to my second year,” Lanier said, “to see if we can build on what we did.”

MHS

Continued from B1 around, Saunders said, but will have to wear a neck brace for six weeks. Henry County will host Clarksville Northeast in round two on Friday. While Saunders would certainly like to be coaching in round two, he said he likes the progress the program has made. “We lost to Westwood in the final game the last two years,” Saunders said. “This offseason we won’t have that same sour taste in our mouth. I think it will motivate the guys to work even harder … We finished third in our district. Everybody picked us last. That only motivates me to work harder when you have doubters.”

muzzleloader/deer season opened and will stay open until Jan. 1, 2012. Gun deer/ season will start Nov. 19, 2011, and continue until Jan. 1,2012. Non quota antlerless deer hunts will begin next month in Tipton County. Two can be bagged Dec. 17-18, two can be bagged Dec. 19-25 and two can be bagged Dec. 26 to Jan. 1. Quail season started Nov. 5 and will continue until Jan. 31 with a daily bag limit of six. I would like to make a request to all those quail hunters out there. Let me hear from you on how the season is doing and are you seeing many birds? The declines in quail populations have been blamed on an endless number of factors including coyotes and other predators like fire ants, pesticides and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mexican quailâ&#x20AC;?. While many factors do influence quail, declines have been primarily caused by deterioration of habitat quality caused by large scale changes in the way we use land throughout the South. High bobwhite populations of past decades were usually an accidental by-product of diverse land use practices that created a quilt like pattern of habitat patches. Thirty years ago, fields of row crops, native grass and annual weeds were well-distributed among forested lands. This patchy habitat was perfect for bobwhite quail. By necessity, modern land use practices have strived to maximize production of food, fiber and forest products and have had the net effect of simplifying the landscape. This reduction in landscape complexity has reduced the number of places where bobwhite can prosper as well as the population size which an area can support. Also, in the face of diminishing habitat quantity and quality, declining bobwhite populations may be more vulnerable to harvest and increasing predator populations. Many folks are leaving fence rows for the habitat of small game animals. If the hawk or coyote or house cat cannot see the small game animal, we will have a start in the right direction to improving small game populations. Arnold Bull hosts â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild-
