Many will vote at new locations By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com If you live in Tipton County and you're a registered voter, there's a pretty good chance you have received a new voter registration card in the mail the last few weeks. Because of the redistricting process that was completed last year, as many as 10,000 Tipton County voters could be heading to different polling places for the Aug. 2 county general and state primary election, as well as the Nov. 6 state and federal general election. According to Neil Bell, Tipton County administrator of elections, approximately 6,500 voters changed precincts and an additional 3,500 in District 1 will change polling places, but not districts. “Ultimately,” Bell said, “It's so your vote counts as much as the next guy's.

If you were shifted, it was because you were in a district that was going to have too many people. If you've got double the population as another district, your vote only counts half as much. It's an effort to fix that … It's all to make sure your vote, everybody's vote, roughly, counts the same. It's not perfection, but it's as close as you can get.” The redistricting process was completed late last year. The Aug. 2 election will be the first one conducted using the new lines. There are approximately 32,000 registered voters in Tipton County. Bell said about 20,000 cards were mailed out and by now everybody who is getting one should have one. Some of those who received new cards will not change precincts or polling places, but received new cards to SEE VOTE, PAGE A3

Spring Fling wraps up for area athletes By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com There's never a good time for the season to end. And while that old sports cliché is true and several Tipton County teams and athletes saw their seasons end shy of a state title at last week's BlueCross Spring Fling in Murfreesboro, there were plenty of success stories. Covington senior Kamesha VanPelt ended her high school career

on the highest of high notes, taking first place in the state Class A-AA 200 meters. The Munford softball team picked up its first state tournament in program history last week with a victory over Mt. Juliet, a team that routed the Lady Cougars in the 2011 state tournament. And the Covington baseball team, making its first state tournament appearance since winning it all in 2006, won its opener in the Class AA state tournament against Spring

Hill, a team that ultimately finished second, before dropping a couple of heartbreakers. The Tipton-Rosemark Academy baseball team made its first-ever trip to the state tournament and the Lady Rebels returned to Murfreesboro to defend their state title. Both teams came up short, but enjoyed solid seasons nonetheless. For more on all of the local teams and athletes that competed in the Spring Fling, see sports on page B1.

Covington shortstop T.A. Watson and a Spring Hill runner look to the umpire for a call during Spring Fling action last week in Smyrna.. The runner was safe on the play, and Covington lost the game 4-2, ending their pursuit of a state title.

While a lot of high school students will be hanging out at the mall or on the computer, Munford High rising senior Daniel Hawkins will be attending the prestigious National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine in Raleigh-Durham, N.C. this summer, June 1019. Daniel has dreamed of becoming a cardiovascular surgeon since he was 12-years-old and has tailored his high school career with that goal in mind, a goal spurred by a childhood incident involving his grandfather. “The first time I considered this path was when my grandfather was in the hospital suffering from renal cell carcinoma,” revealed Daniel. “He had been fighting this cancer for over a year and the doctor handling his case opted to try an experimental treatment in the hopes that it would work or at least buy some more time. A complication caused the back wall of my grandfather's heart to rupture. The consulting cardiovascular surgeon had drawn some diagrams on a board emphasizing the damage that had been done to the heart and was explaining what they intended to do to repair it. Even though I was only 12 at the time, I was intrigued and talked to the surgeon about it some. I did some research and later decided that was what I wanted to do with my life.” He is the son of Lisa and David Hawkins of Atoka. His parents said Daniel has had a passion for learning and an enthusiasm for medical science ever since they can remember. “Daniel has had a determination to become a doctor since he was approximately 11-12 years old and we, like most parents, were thrilled with his ambitions, yet unsure if he’d change his mind a dozen times like SEE HAWKINS, PAGE A2

Camp Invention starts next week at MES, CES

Invent Now, Inc. is pleased to announce that its nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program is coming to Munford Elementary and Crestview Elementary this summer. First started in 1990, Camp Invention is a weeklong summer day program for children entering grades one through six that engages children to discover their own innate creativity and inventiveness through hands-on science, technology, engineering, and

mathematics (STEM) content. “Camp Invention’s reputation as a leader in high-quality summer programming has helped us to grow from a museum program impacting 300 kids in 1990 to a national program impacting over 76,000 kids,� explains Michael J. Oister, Chief Operating Officer for Invent Now. “We have families who tell us Camp Invention changed their child’s outlook on learning, and stories like

those keep us inspired.� Each day, children rotate through four integrated modules that employ creative thinking to solve real-world challenges. Children learn vital 21st century life skills such as problem solving and teamwork through imaginative play. In this summer’s Envision program, children will experience different modules including Inventeureka™, Action and Adventure Games™, Magnetropolis™, and

I Can Invent: Balloon Burst™. Children will spend their week visiting a faux island to study magnetism, taking a fantasy adventure on the Ci6000 Space Modulator Time Machine, inventing a balloon-bursting machine, and much more! Even if a child has participated in the past, he or she will benefit from brand new adventures throughout the week. Also launching this summer is the Counselor in Training program,

ideal for Camp Invention “graduates� who are now too old for the program. These individuals will assist Leadership Interns with tasks and help to mentor participants. Counselors in Training will leave with volunteer experience and a step ahead of others when entering high school. To register a child for these programs or to learn more about Invent Now programming, visit www.CampInvention. org or call 800.968.4332.

Since Camp Invention’s inception, the program has grown to include over 1,200 school partnerships in 49 states. In 2011, more than 76,000 children participated nationwide. Camp Invention was created in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, which continues to support Invent Now’s mission to inspire creativity and inventive thinking in children of all ages.

Continued from A1 most kids do at that age,� said his mother, Lisa. “His father and I have always been supportive of his ambitions offering informative guidance when necessary. We want this to be his career choice, not ours. Being a doctor sounds “cool� to a kid until they realize what really goes into becoming a physician, especially one who wants to specialize in heart conditions.� Daniel is an honor student and a member of the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) club at MES. He was nominated and selected by teachers, administrators, and physicians with the NYLF to be among hundreds of students from all over the world to attend the NYLF on Medicine forum this summer. He has taken a myriad of classes in the math and science disciplines to help him prepare for his career choice since middle school, including biology, chemistry, health science education, diagnostic medi-

cine, Emergency Medical Services, and anatomy & physiology. Additionally, he was been selected to study and participate in Medical Therapeutics during his senior year, which offers students the chance to study both in the classroom as well as in hospital and nursing facilities. “Daniel is very focused and driven toward achieving his goals,� said Lisa. “We encouraged Daniel to research what would be necessary for him to prepare to go into the medical field and what the life of a surgeon would be like. He has never changed his mind about what he wants to do even after finding out how many more years of school and specialization it would require plus the rigorous challenges of internship and life as a surgeon. David and I are very excited that Daniel was offered the opportunity to participate in NYLF on Medicine. We believe it will give Daniel an ‘up close and personal’ look at the medical field, especially cardiolo-

gy as this group plans to attend some cardiovascular clinics.� A National Honor Society member, he plans on attending Christian Brothers University for his bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science and then, hopes to be accepted to medical school. “I’m looking forward to attending the forum so that I can further my knowledge of the medical field,� said Daniel. “I want to actually begin to learn about practicing medicine itself. I hope to gain a myriad of experience and knowledge and I would also like to make some new friends that I will perhaps meet again in medical school or at work in the future.�

DSCC begins new first year experience What begins well ends well. During a time of rising college costs and higher expectations of college graduates, the Dyersburg State Community College faculty and staff are taking this old saying to heart through the new Focus program. Over the past six months, DSCC Associate Professor of English Andrea Franckowiak, Counselor Karen Rutledge, and the DSCC Complete College Academy Team made up of President Karen Bowyer, Vice President Mary Ann Sellars, Assistant Vice President Kay Patterson, Assistant Vice President J. Dan Gullett, Associate Professor of English Linda Weeks, and Mathematics Instructor Devalyn Reynolds, have been researching what it takes to get students entering DSCC off to the best start possible. This past January and again in April, the entire DSCC faculty and staff participated in a review and brainstorm-

ing session to review the proposed new student orientation process called FOCUS: The DSCC First Year Experience Program. “All the data and research over the last 25 years show that a first year experience program can positively impact new students’ success rates and make a difference in retention. DSCC wants to do everything in our power to help our students succeed and cross the stage at graduation,� commented Andrea Franckowiak, the newly appointed Coordinator of New Orientation/Pre-term Skill Builder Program. There are five major parts to the DSCC FOCUS program: First Things First, Open House, Course Orientation 1010, Unleash Success and Steps toward Success Students start with First Things First. A Getting Started checklist for those who plan to attend

DSCC has been prepared. When new students register for fall classes, they may also register for a summer FOCUS session-orientation sessions that cover information critical to students’ success. “Students will discover the FOCUS session is an informative, anxiety-relieving fun time� points out Dr. Karen Rutledge, coordinator of these sessions. Helpful tips and door prizes will be given during each session. DSCC Open Houses, held prior to the start of the semester, are the second part of the program. Students will meet instructors, find classrooms, attend helpful workshops, and enjoy music and food while meeting returning students and learn about student life and student organizations. These events are designed to help new students have a stress-free start to college. Currently, Fall Open Houses are sched-

uled for August 14 on main campus, August 15 at the GCC, and August 16 at the JNC. A special orientation course for new students is the third part of the program. When freshman Tiana Cohill was asked her thoughts about ORN 1010, a course she just completed, her response was, “It not only helped me with school, but it helped me in my life all together.� Orientation 1010 (ORN 1010) has been developed to help students master the skills needed to succeed in college. Topics that will be covered over the 15-weeksession include goal setting and time management, motivation and attitude, note taking, memory techniques, study and test taking skills, critical and creative thinking along with problem solving and communication skills, technology use, career choices and stress management.

Here are a few examples of ways you can keep learning at the front of your day throughout summer: Keep healthy with activities such as swimming, playing at the park, or taking nature walks. Use those chances to talk to your kids about what their favorite way to stay active is. Our students can keep reading by participating in the Tipton County Library’s Free Reading program that starts on June 1st. Check out their website at tiptoncountylibrary.com. There are lots of summer camps going on

throughout Tipton County and several inexpensive opportunities can be found through the Covington Sportsplex. Have your child develop their own picture summer schedule so they can continue a routine, this will help everyone adjust once summer break is over. Help your child make positive choices for how they spend their time. Attend plays at the Ruffin Theater or at CIAA. “Aladdin� will be performed on June 8th with students from across the county that participated in the Tipton Arts Council Theatrical Camp.

We will continue each week to mention the successes of our students from this school year and offer tidbits about CIAA and our fabulous team of teachers. We are proud of each and every student and want to congratulate you and your families for a WONDERFUL school year! Now let’s make summer break just as successful!

Synthetic drugs becoming prevalent There is a new system of drug trafficking in Tennessee, and it is being carried out right in front of our eyes at convenience stores across the state. Those who are breaking the law are doing so knowingly, and I am writing today to alert you to this dangerous trend: synthetic drugs. Synthetic drugs are illegal, and they are dangerous. Often sold in stores, some purchasers may not know that these drugs are illegal and dangerous. Across Tennessee, children and adults are having bad reactions to the changing chemicals used in these drugs. Along with my fellow district attorneys, I am working to strengthen laws seeking to eliminate these products altogether and to prosecute individuals who continue to sell these substances. Please help us by learning more about synthetic drugs and spreading the word within our community. How can I recognize synthetic drugs? Synthetic drugs are often marketed in small, colorful plastic pouches—sometimes using cartoon-like images—under names like K2, Spice or Molly’s Plant Food. They can be accompanied by disclaimers such as “Not for Human Consumption” and labeled as “plant food” or “bath salts” in an attempt to mask their true use and sidestep existing laws. Some are designed to look and be smoked like marijuana while others are used more like methamphetamine. What are the dangers of synthetic drug use? The effects of these chemical-based substances—violent outbursts, hallucinations, paranoia, seizures, increased blood pressure, possible kidney failure, suicidal thoughts and more—are dangerous, and much more severe than users may anticipate. The substances are cheap, addictive, extremely potent and easily fatal. What are lawmakers doing to address this issue? In the past two years as synthetic drugs have become increasingly popular, lawmakers have acted repeatedly to outlaw the latest versions of these drugs. However, producers of synthetic drugs MIKE DUNAVANT constantly alter the chemical D ISTRICT ATTORNEY contents of the products to circumvent ongoing law enforcement efforts. This is precisely why Tennessee’s district attorneys have continued to work on legislation that takes a big-picture approach to synthetic drugs and the many varied compounds used to produce them. My fellow district attorneys and I supported our legislators in addressing the present shortcomings in the law. Through several bills recently signed by Gov. Bill Haslam, the penalties regarding synthetic drugs will increase whether offenders are selling, possessing or ingesting synthetic drugs. The definition of synthetic drugs will also be expanded to include all possible synthetic derivates. These efforts will stiffen the penalties for infractions appropriately, as well as eliminate the weaknesses in the substance definition, which producers of synthetic drugs previously abused. We have also supported dozens of undercover law enforcement stings on convenience stores throughout the state. These efforts have brought criminals to trial and resulted in the confiscation of large quantities of synthetic drugs. As your district attorney, I will continue to work to eradicate synthetic drugs from our communities in Lauderdale, Tipton, Fayette, Hardeman, and McNairy counties using the available resources. I hope you will join this effort by sharing this information with your family, friends and colleagues.

Discretionary spending, which funds our national defense, our highways, our national parks and national laboratories, is only 36 percent of the federal budget and is growing at the rate of inflation. Focusing our budget cutting on discretionary spending is just a way for Congress—to use the president’s words—to kick the can down the road. The real work is in reducing the growth of mandatory spending. Although the Senate majority is not debating its own budget resolution, going more than 1,100 days without offering a budget, we are debating several proposals. I support the House-passed budget because it is a serious proposal to cut out-of-control spending and help solve our spending crisis. I also support the proposal offered by Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.)--even though it sets non-defense discretionary spending at 2006 levels that I believe are too low—because it reforms mandatory entitlement SEE VIEW, PAGE A5

Now is the time to communicate with your parents about a variety of issues related to their financial situation and estate plans.

Just to name one example, you should inquire of your parents if they’ve designated a durable power of attorney to make financial decisions for them in case they’re ever incapacitated.

If boomers aren’t saving for retirement because they don’t have enough funds leftover after covering daily expenses like food, housing, gas and putting kids through college, how do they feel like they will have enough savings for retirement? The answer:

Picture this: you are in your mid or late fifties, and someone asks you the question, have you saved enough for retirement? Here’s a scary statistic: About 49 percent of Americans say they aren’t contributing to any retirement fund.

lison. Prayer is amazing, because ANYONE can do it. My five-year-old prays and it is so sweet to hear. He just tells God what’s on his mind. You can do the same for those who are need. I hope you will spend just a minute to pray for these requests. Good Gracious! Has the heat got you moving yet? That mercury’s been highstepping it into the upper 90’s over the last couple days. Good news is we might catch us a slight reprieve for a day or two before it gets back to rising. I hope you all stay cool and don’t get too hot. Take care as Summer begins to open up!

Almyra Libby CLick Hi Everyone, It’s our prayers that all of our military personnel were blessed with a wonderful Memorial Day. Thanks to all who have served as well as to the families who have sacrificed loved ones. Memorial Day is such a special day. However, every day is a special day when it comes to these men and women. Well, I understand these 90 degree days will soon turn into nighttime lows in the 50’s. It`s been such an unusual year for weather. At this time I would like for all my friends to please remember Mrs. Louise Vandergrift in your prayers. She is a very special lady.

During April 1862, the Tipton County Court appropriated $9,508 payable for the benefit of the families of 158 “volunteers in the army of the C.S.A.â€? On the 18th Gen. Beauregard ordered Capt. Samuel Taylor’s Tipton Co. Cavalry to Fort Pillow for scouting duty. The company was attached to Jackson’s Regiment, and sent to “an encampment near Mason’s Depot to procure wagons, horses and utensils.â€? The first days of May found the Confederate army at Corinth camped in line of battle. On the 1st the 51st Consolidated Tennessee Infantry was transferred from General James Chalmers’ Brigade to Gen. Ben. Cheatham’s Division. D. C. Neal wrote: “The boys are well pleased‌ several brass bands are playing the sound delightful." Two days later he wrote: “Our men have to stand in our rifle pits night and day; we are looking for a general fight very soon.â€? On May 2, the 4th Tennessee were working on the fortifications.

Pinkney, were “dismounting their cannon� and placing them in batteries at Randolph and Richardson’s Landing. On May 6, Co. B, 12th Louisiana marched northeast from Fort Pillow, a distance of 7 miles and established Camp Green. An officer of the 12th Louisiana serving at the Fort since mid-March was Lieutenant William Francis Howell, brother in law of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Former Covington resident, Brigadier General Cadmus M. Wilcox, was winning laurels in the Confederate army in Virginia. On May 5, he led 1,100 men in the Battle of Williamsburg.

Also on May 5, the cavalry regiments of Col. W. H. Jackson’s 1st Tennessee and Thomas Claiborne’s 6th Confederate, 1,250 men, attacked 3 companies of the 5th Iowa Cavalry at Lockridge’s Mill, Weakley County. J. P. Young wrote: “The (Federal) battalion was almost annihilated, their loss being 6 killed, 16 wounded and 4 officers and 67 men captured, out of a total of 130‌ The command captured two wagons, 56 horses and many arms and accouterments, and all without the loss of a man‌ Hill’s Cavalry of Tipton, was deployed as mounted skirmishers: “Sergeant R.

Elm Grove Saturday night we had left over spaghetti and meatballs for supper. I had heated them in the microwave oven. When I tasted it - it was not warm enough for me. So I jump up from the table to heat it some more. Well, in my speed to get up and warm my food, my pants leg got caught in the curley cue of my chair and I fell flat on the floor... but holding my spaghetti high in my hand. I was somewhat stunned. So, Mr. jumps up from the table and helps me up and checked me out. No broken bones... and I only lost a few noodles from my plate. He got up the noodles from the floor. A while later I was checking the floor to make sure all the noodles were

Karla Combs, Rosie Barnes, and Joseph Sonwineeski. Hope they are each the greatest! Happy Anniversaries to Neil and Ashley Bringle, and Alan and Jan Kinningham.

tainment came from “Big Daddy Taylor� of Brighton. His late parents were Oscar and Ruby Taylor. A special Happy Birthday surprise was given for our oldest Sherrill family member, Florence Sherrill Trent, who was surprised by it all. A special cousin of Jamestown, Eugene Baker, was on hand the entire weekend bringing, as always, lots of fun and laughter. On Sunday morning, most of the family attended church at Bright Hill M.B. Pastor S. P. Cole and first lady Wilada, and the members were perfect hosts. As the reunion came to a beautiful close, many of the family met up at different locations, prepared for their return trip home. Those represented were from Georgia, North Carolina, California, and several from Tennessee cities. Our family wishes to thank our cousin serving in Afghanistan, who was unable to attend, Sgt. Batty Sherrill. He sup-

plied the family shirts, which were blue and white and said, “We’ve come this far, by faith� with praying hands. You were truly missed by everyone. Hopefully we will be seeing him in July – God Speed! We are saddened by the passing of our beloved, aunt, cousin and friend, Bessie Cobbs. To her children, Edward, Doris Kay, Pam and Sundra and all of their children – “God will take care of you!� Arrangements are pending. Due to the holiday, missionary meetings were canceled until next Tuesday at 5 p.m. President Mary Burton is expecting you! We are praying for Jennie Stewart, Joseph Heaston Sr., Posey Reed, Isaiah and Willie Mae Burton Sr., Carlotta Jones, Connie and Christine Brown, Rev. and Mrs. Richard Coe, Flossie Woods, Jessie Lawson, Johnnie Thompson, Eula Culbreath and Family, Beaulah Wakefield, Ruth Alston, Lou-

because of people like you who see a need and can help fill that need, that’s what the Bible says we should do. Thank you folks and thank you God for your people who are willing to adhere to Your Word. It may happen again some other time, and if it does, please keep in mind that we are never going to be hungry and without any food, because our God is a much greater God than that, He’s the one that tells us in His Word to “always take care of our widows and orphans,� and that’s what He does, through you! I applaud you Almyra and the surrounding communities for being so generous to want to help the people of your own community. Thank you, from the very bottom of our hearts and may God continue to bless every one of you! Until next week, give out lots of hugs this week, there’s people all over our county that need a hug, you just may be the one that can help with that need. God Bless!

DarSay Burton Greetings, praying all of you had a wonderful weekend with your families and friends. The Sherrill family reunion held in Jamestown kicked off on Friday with an old fashioned fish fry with all of the fixings. This was held at the lovely home of LaRue Albritton and Florene Trent in Jamestown. Family chairs, Kenny King, GloDine Davis, Debra Elkins, Kevin King Jr. and Tim Burton Sr. did it up right as usual. On Saturday afternoon at the home of our late grandparents, Pinkney N. Sherrill Sr. and Florence “Doll� Smith Sherrill and now the home of their son, Minister Pinkney N. Sherrill Jr. (Pink Jr.), family and friends gathered once again for an old fashioned lawn picnic. Bar-b-cue pork, chicken, brats and all the fixings was the menu, which we all enjoyed. Special music enter-

Floyd Columbus Hello everybody, sure hope and pray everyone’s week has been a great one. Ours has here at Dunlap, just kind of gearing down from the wonderful Springfest fundraiser last week! Once again to everyone “thank youâ€? is nowhere near enough to say about everyone that came out and helped with everything! You are all a true blessing from the Lord Himself. I was so excited last week that I failed to do a couple things. One was to wish Ms. Betty Lovett a very happy b’day and also Lindsey Jamerson. They are two of our wonderful staff out here at Dunlap Retirement Center! Happy b’day ladies! The other was to continue to ask for prayer for Mr. Freddie Huggins, he is doing better. I need to try and clear up something‌. about a month ago, our local Dollar General Store, on Highway 14, graciously “chose us,â€? at Dunlap to

be the proud recipients of their company policy which chooses a nonprofit organization to do an in-store food drive once a quarter. It lasted about two to three weeks and the community totally overwhelmed us and even the store manager, Serena, with their generosity and all the food that was donated. Some folks thought we didn’t have enough food for our residents and were concerned. On the contrary, we do have food but it is because of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that we depend on for everything that He gives us. God provides through His people! We had a family come today and donate several boxes of food to us because they saw the sign up at the dollar store a couple weeks ago and wanted to give more to our non-profit organization! Thank you mom, sis and brother, for doing what the Lord leads you to do! This is how we operate,

I met Alan and Debbie Otts at their house around 2 p.m. that afternoon with the cupcakes and I followed them to West Kentucky Youth Camp, where the wedding was on Saturday. The wedding, under the pavilion, was beautiful! Jeff Phillips did a great job marrying the happy couple. After the garter and bouquet were flung, the couple left out for Opryland. Best wishes, John and Tessa! Saturday, June 2nd, Ellen Weedman will be having her annual CARE Yard Sale to benefit her dog rescue efforts. Please go out and buy something!

Debe Simonton This week’s Farm Report: Of course, we are ready for another rain. Everything is doing well around here but some places in the county didn’t get last week’s rain and the corn is suffering. Pray the whole county gets the next rain. Thursday, Elizabeth and I baked the 100 cupcakes for John Evans IV and Tessa McDavid’s rehearsal supper on Friday night. We got it all done, thanks to borrowed mixers, mixing bowls and pans! That night James and I, Elizabeth, Justin and Lyla, and Clint with Courtney Gurley all drove to Braden for fish. Great night and it was so good to all be together. Love Braden! On the way home we ran upon a car that had flipped a couple of times. David Whaley was picking it up with his wrecker and Clint got out and swept glass and picked up some things that came out of the car. The ambulance had already left for The Med. Hope everyone involved is OK.

Continued from A8 cleaned up... well there were spaghetti specks on the wall and on the refrigerator that was stuck tight. What a mess. (I was so thankful that I did not mess up my supper!) Another incident this week: I got up from bed and went to the kitchen to get my coffee that Mr. had made for me. I saw something in the floor. I asked did he spill something in the floor. He said, “NO�. Then I was getting my coffee and I saw this glob of stuff on the counter at the sink. I call him over to take a look, and he said, “it looks like bird poop�. Then the hunt began. We open the door out to the deck and then check the windows in the breakfast room. So, when we move the blinds here flies up this bird out the door on the deck. We don’t know how

(WY3s#OVINGTON 4.

this bird got in the kitchen. When Mr. goes out to get the paper he opens the garage and he probably left the door cracked... so the bird came thru the door... we guess! The “guest� bird we had that morning was very glad to back in the out-of-doors. The poor flowers that I set out two weeks ago are looking so pitiful. I have tried to water them every day... I have forgot them for a day or two and this morning I watered them really good. I sure hope and pray for some rain. Our grass is starting to look bad too. The clover we have in our yard comes back with a white bloom right out to the ground, no stems it looks like. Mr. cut the yard this week with his tractor. He managed to put the right fuel in the tank. It sure worked good, we are so thankful. Love & prayers.

TWRA/Baptist Church Youth Fish Rodeo Saturday June 9th All Children up to 13 are invited for this free event! TWRA will stock catďƒžsh for the event located at the Baptist Church Lake on Hwy 59 in Covington across from the golf course. Registration and ďƒžshing is from 7 til 11 a.m. Bring your own bait!!! Prizes will be given out for “Biggest Fishâ€? and “Most Fishâ€? in different age groups.

Becky and I would like to say thank you to let everyone know how grateful we are for all the prayers, the support and just the love that has been so graciously shown to us during these past 8 months. This has been the most difďƒžcult test of our lives. Without the love and support of our families, friends, churches and their members that continued to keep us on so many prayer lists, and on behalf of the entire community, we would like for you to know that we would have never made it through these difďƒžcult times without your help. There are just too many people to thank by name, but for everyone who sent a card, brought food to our home, the visits to ICU and the hospital or made a phone call, we will never be able to thank you enough. Each and every act of these thoughtful gifts of your time and kindness, by the grace of god and the power of prayer, my recovery time might not have been possible, certainly not as easy. This has helped me stay positive and let me know that becky and I were never alone in ďƒžghting this battle. Leonard, Brenda, Houston, Allie Carol Moss and Charley Morgan Rivers would also like to say thank you for all the support that has been shown to them during my illness. Again, without our friends, prayers, phone calls, food, cards, the visits many of you made to the funeral home checking on my progress and for the caring that has been shown throughout the community, our family would not have been able to get through theses difďƒžcult times either. The entire moss family is so appreciative for all the help that they received in helping me and Becky during this ordeal. With the love and support from my family, Becky and I were able to concentrate on my healing while they took care of us, mother and Landon. We are so grateful to them for all their help. we simply could not have made it without their love, understanding and patience. The staff of Maley Yarbrough funeral home: Brenda Moss, W.E. Sandlin, Jim Ennis, Jimmy Chumley, Eddie Tate, Jonathan Sorrell, Jean Wright, Buddy Lewis would also like to say “thank youâ€?. To everyone that has offered their help during my absence. So many people called or dropped by to help the staff with anything they might need. We are so fortunate to have so many friends that were willing to take time out of their daily schedules to do whatever might be needed, wanting nothing in return but just to help. The outpouring of love that we have received has been so humbling and overwhelming and everyone on staff at Maley Yarbrough is so appreciative to everyone that offered their help. To our friends that did help the staff during a service, refusing to take anything for your time, we are very grateful and thank you so much for being there in our time of need. Once again, Becky and I would love to thank everyone that has helped us through this part of my recovery by name, but there are so many it would be impossible to do so. We are afraid we might leave someone out, but to everyone that spent countless hours sitting with Becky and our families in the ICU waiting room, that sent cards and ďƒ&#x;owers, brought food to our home and Brenda and Leonard’s as well, the many visits to our home, the phone calls and all the thoughts and prayers, we want you all to know how much it means to us that you cared enough to stop and take the time to let us know you were thinking of us. Becky and I hope someday that we can make a difference in your lives, just as you have ours, and we are so humbled by the outpourings of love that you have shared with us, our families and to the staff of Maley Yarbrough Funeral Home. Love In Christ, Becky and Charlie Moss

T-County Clay Busters wins two state titles The T-County Clay Busters brought home two state titles during the recent 2012 Tennessee 4H State Trap Shooting competition held at the Montgomery Shooting Complex in Clarksville, Tenn. The T-County Clay Busters are members of the Tennessee 4H and the Tennessee Scholastic Clay Target Program (TNSCTP). As new members of the Tennessee 4H Shooting Sports Program, this is the first year that the Clay Busters have competed in the Tennessee 4H State Shoot. The competition was setup in two divisions, the senior division, which are athletes in grade 9 through 12 and the junior division, athletes in grades 5 through 8. In the senior division, the Clay Busters fielded two complete teams. The first team consisted of Chase Avery, Jody Jaco, Shelby Simmons, and Amber Pruitt, who won the senior division state title and the second team included members Jake Archer, Joey Simmons, Houston Graham, and Mikey Akins, which placed fourth. In the Junior Division, T-County also walked away with the first place trophy with its team consisting of Houston Carson, Dalton Ray, and Anthony Garzonio. Overall individual awards were present to the following athletes in the senior division: Jody Jaco – 4th, Amber Pruitt – 5th, and Chase Avery – 6th. In the junior division: Houston Carson placed – 5th and Dalton Ray – 8th. In the SC-TNSCTP District Shoot held at Memphis Sport Shooting Association on May 5, 2012, the teams and individual athletes competed at a high level. The Junior Varsity team won the District Championship. With individual awards going to Joey Simmons, who after winning a shoot off, earned the High Overall Junior Varsity Male Championship with a score of 98 and Jake Archer who won second place with a score of 97. Chase Avery won a shoot off for third in the Male Varsity Division with a score of 98 and Amber Pruitt won the Varsity Lady’s Division with a score of 95. The T-County Clay Busters is a youth shooting sports

program that is largely funded by the community. Over the past few years we have received several grants from the Friends of the NRA and other sponsors who support our efforts to teach youth the importance of gun safety, responsibility, and leadership. We would like to thank our community for their generous contributions, without the support we receive this opportunity would be lost to our youth. If you would like more information about the TCounty Clay Busters, or if you are interested in supporting our efforts, please visit our website at www. tiptoncountyclaybusters. com.

CHS, Munford fall at Fling

Lady Tigers end MHS' state run

Spring Hill stops Chargers

By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com

By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Appearing in the program's first state tournament since 2006, Covington played three down-to-thewire games last week in the BlueCross Spring Fling Class AA state tournament in Smyrna. After defeating Spring Hill 2-1 in the opener on Tuesday, the Chargers fell to Smith County 5-4 and Spring Hill 4-2 on Wednesday, ending their season at 32-12. Despite the solid performance, Charger head coach David Sage left Smyrna wanting more for his team. “I'm not going to say we were happy,” said Sage. “I thought our pitching was pretty good … We knew going into state we were going to have some hits. We had hits, but not in the critical times we needed them.” Covington and Smith County were tied 1-1 heading into the bottom of the third when Smith County's Andrew Henson hit a grandslam to put his team up 5-1. He also drove in his team's first run with a first-inning single. The Chargers, however, rallied. In the fourth Clayton Click drove in a run with a ground ball and Brad Walker brought home Covington's third run with a sacrifice fly. In the fifth T.A. Watson got Covington to within one run with a single. Tyler Davis lanched a fly ball to left in the seventh with two outs that fell when the left and center fielders collided, but he was stranded at third. Tommy Beasley pitched well for Covington, striking out seven and allowing just six hits over six innings.

Munford ran into a nearly unhittable pitcher and a familiar foe in games two and three of the Class AAA state softball tournament in Murfreesboro last week. The result was a pair of losses, ending a Munford state tournament run that made a little history. Munford picked up its first-ever state tournament win on Tuesday with a 6-5 vcitory over Mt. Juliet. But Soddy Daisy, the eventual state champs, overwhelmed Munford 10-0 on Wednesday and Arlington, a team Munford beat twice earlier in the season, ended Munford's season on Thursday with a 6-2 win. “I was pretty pleased overall,” Munford coach Glenn Goulder said. “That one game (against Soddy Daisy) we didn't really compete, but against the other two teams I feel like we stacked up pretty well.” Soddy Daisy's Kelsey Nunley struck out seven of the first nine Lady Cougars she faced on Wednesday. She allowed just one hit, a bunt single by Maggie Johnson, and struck out 15 in six innings. Tara Comer allowed 13 hits and three runs while striking out three to take the loss. Munford led Arlington 2-0 through three innings before the Lady Tigers exploded for six runs on six hits off Alex Stanford in the fourth. Stanford struck out three and allowed only one other hit, but took the loss. In the first inning Jodi Duncan singled home Sami Jo Schulz, who singled and stole second, to give Munford (37-12) a 1-0 lead.

TRA softball, baseball turned back at state By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com The Tipton-Rosemark Academy baseball and softball teams had high hopes last week heading into the BlueCross Spring Fling DII-A state tournaments. The Lady Rebels were the defending state champs and the Rebels featured nine seniors. Unfortunately for TRA fans, both teams went two and out. After a 3-1 loss to Ezell-Harding last Tuesday at LaVergne High School, the Rebels, making their first state tournament appearance, fell to Harding Academy on Tuesday, 2-0, ending their season at 3214. “I still feel like we had a very solid season,” said TRA coach Brad Smith, whose team finished one win short of a state tournament berth last year. “In the preseason, one of our goals was to compete for a state championship … And we got there.” Rosemark managed just three hits against Harding Academy starter Nathan Stanford, who struck out nine and didn't walk anyone. Andrew Ralston pitched well for TRA, striking out six and allowing just five hits over 6 and 1/3 innings, but took the loss. In the seventh, Connor Alexander

singled and Cody Migliore doubled to put runners on second and third with two outs, but Stanford shut the door. “We didn't get a two-out base hit the entire tournament,” Smith said. “I felt like we pitched well enough to win. We just didn't swing the bat … Was I upset? Yeah, but I'm not going to let a two-day tournament diminish the whole season.” Following a 12-0 loss to Davidson Academy on Tuesday in Murfreesboro in the tournament opener, the Lady Rebels (23-7) lost to Donelson Christian Academy 11-3 on Wednesday. TRA pushed across two runs in the bottom of the third to trim DCA's lead to 3-2, but three DCA runs in the fourth was too much to overcome. “It was not our best effort,” said TRA coach Joe Layton. “I was a little disappointed with our effort on the defensive end. We played really strong defense all year. I don't know if it was nerves or what. We made some uncharacteristic mistakes.” TRA's offense had plenty of hits against DCA. Roxanna Kimes was 2 for 4 with a double and Ashton Needham was 3 for 4 with an RBI. Julanne McCommon, Brooklyn Simpson and

TRACK, TENNIS AT SPRING FLING

Covington's VanPelt takes first in state 200 meters By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Baseball and softball players weren't the only Tipton County athletes competing in last week's BlueCross Spring Fling state championships in Murfreesboro. Brighton, Covington and Munford each had representation in Murfreesboro.

Covington's Kamesha VanPelt (25.53) won the Class A-AA 200 meter dash and the Lady Charger 4x100 relay team of Tamara Perry, Christina Jones, Briuna Dean and VanPelt took seventh with a time of 50.77. On the men’s side, the Covington team placed 20th overall with 11 points. Their score had the team in the upper third of those com-

peting. Trey Wilson, with a toss of 45-4.25, came in fifth in the shot put. Jadarius Temple was seventh with a toss of 41-7. The winner with a toss of 55plus feet eclipsed the second place toss by better than six feet. Tavious Cleaves was fifth in the 200 meter dash with a time

of 22.71 seconds. The winner was timed at 21.70. Brighton junior Malcolm Terry took sixth in the Class AAA long jump with a 21-09 and 14th in the high jump with a 6-00. Munford Sidtavious Mennis took ninth in the Class AAA long jump with a 21-01. Cougar Cedric Williams was 10th in the triple jump with a

43-03.25 and classmate Tyler Gray was ninth in the shotput with a 48-00.25. Munford junior Taylor Patterson made it to the Class AAA tennis state tournament. She lost 6-2, 6-2 to Nithya Kanagasegar of Cumberland County. Steve Holt contributed to this story.

COMMENTARY

Pastor's message of mistreatment towards homosexuals deplorable By REV. DR. SCOTT SEALY First Presbyterian Church, Covington A video of a message by Charles Worley, pastor of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina has been making its way around the internet. In the message, Worley suggests that gays and lesbians should be sequestered behind “50 or 100 mile long” electric fence so that they will “die out.” As a Christian Minister I am compelled to denounce Mr. Worley. His attitude and message is deplorable, inexcusable, and against the clear message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

While scripture is clear that God’s plan for sexual relations is within the context of marriage between one man and one woman, scripture is no less clear that Christians are called to treat everyone with respect, grace, and love. All people are created in God’s image, and though the likeness is corrupt in each one of us, we are commanded to honor that image by our treatment of all people. Worley, who should be proclaiming the gospel of God’s love for all sinners has abused the pulpit and overstepped the authority of one who should expound the Word of God rather than vent his personal opinion. The Gospel of the Cross

is an offense. The message that we are naturally so estranged by God that it took the bloody sacrifice of Jesus on the cross to reconcile us is not flattering. The idea that there is nothing I can do to earn God’s favor, and in fact even the best that I can do, my “righteousness”, is as “filthy rags” (Isa 64:6) before a Holy God hurts my pride. But there is a difference in lovingly presenting a message that offends and being offensive. We are called to hate sin and love sinners, Worley’s message is simply hateful. We Christians are commanded by our Lord to love our neighbors as our selves, we aren’t excused from this difficult com-

mand if our neighbor’s sins differ from ours, nor even if they oppose Biblical teaching or disbelieve in God; we are commanded to love even our enemies. When we must disagree with others we are commanded to “speak the truth in love” (Eph. 4:15). Worley, and others like him, needs to understand the difference between standing firm in their convictions and spouting diabolic venom in the name of the Lord they claim to serve. They should also remember that the only time Jesus used such vitriolic condemnation was for selfrighteous religious leaders

First Utility District of Tipton County Water Quality Report for 2011 Is my drinking water safe? Yes, our water meets all of EPA’s health standards. We have conducted numerous tests for over 80 contaminants that may be in drinking water. As you’ll see in the following chart, we only detected 5 of these contaminants. We found all of these contaminants at safe levels. What is the source of my water? Your water, which is ground water, comes from the tertiary conned sand aquifer. Our goal is to protect our water from contaminants and we are working with the State to determine the vulnerability of our water source to potential contamination. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) has prepared a Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP) Report for the untreated water sources serving water to this water system. The SWAP Report assesses the susceptibility of untreated water sources to potential contamination.To ensure safe drinking water, all public water systems treat and routinely test their water. Water sources have been rated as reasonably susceptible, moderately susceptible or slightly susceptible based on geologic factors and human activities in the vicinity of the water source. The First Utility District of Tipton County 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 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can be viewed online at www.state.tn.gov/environment/dws/ dwassess.shtml or you may contact the Water System to obtain copies of specic assessments. A wellhead protection plan is available for your review by contacting Rickey E. Gray at the 1st Utility District of Tipton County between *;00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays. Why are there contaminants in my water? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Este informe contiene información muy importante. Tradúscalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien. For more information about your drinking water, please call Rickey E. Gray at 476-9525. How can I get involved? Our Water Board meets on the fourth Monday at 6:00 p.m. in the board room located at 3706 Highway 59 west. Please feel free to participate in these meetings.The Commissioners of 1st Utility District of Tipton County serve four-year terms. Vacancies on the Board of Commissioners are lled by the vote of the remaining Commissioners in ofce. Decisions by the Board of Commissioners on customer complaints brought before the Board of Commissioners under the District’s customer complaint policy may be reviewed by the Utility Management Review Board of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservations pursuant to Section 7-82-702(7) of Tennessee Code Annotated. Is our water system meeting other rules that govern our operations? The State and EPA require us to test and report on our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. We have met all of these requirements. Results of unregulated contaminant analysis are available upon request. We want you to know that we pay attention to all the rules.

Other Information The sources of drinking water (both tap 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-occuring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water: • Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. • Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occuring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. • Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. • Organic chemical contaminats, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. •Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensue 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. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. Do I need to take special precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons, such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have under-gone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about not only their drinking water, but food preparation, personal hygiene, and precautions in handling infants and pets from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800426-4791). Lead in Drinking Water If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. First Utility District of Tipton County is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but can not control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by ushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http:// www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. Water System Security Following the events of September 2001, we realize that our customers are concerned about the security of their drinking water. We urge the public to report any suspicious activities at any utility facilities, including treatment plants, tanks, re hydrants, etc. to 901-476-9525.

What Quality Data What does this chart mean? • MCLG: Maximum Contaminant Level Goal, or the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. • MCL: Maximum Contaminant Levels, or the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated constituents, a person would have to drink 2 liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of having the described health effect. • MRDL: Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level or MRDL - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for the control of microbial contaminants. • MRDLG: Maximum residual disinfectant level goal. The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reect the benets of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. • AL - Action Level, or the concentration of a contaminant which, when exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. • Below Detection Level (BDL) - laboratory analysis indicates that the contaminant is not present. • Non-Dectects (ND) - laboratory analysis indicates that the contaminate is not present. • Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) - explained as a relation to time and money as one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000. • Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter - explained as a relation to time and money as one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000. • Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) - picocuries per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water. • Millirems per year (mrem/yr) - measure of radiation absorbed by the body. • Million Fibers per Liter (MFL) - million ber per liter is a measure of the presence of asbestos bers that are longer than 10 micrometers. • Nephelometric Turbidity Unit (NTU) - nephelometric turbidity unit is a measure of the clarity of water. Turbidity in excess of 5 NTU is just noticeable to the average person. • TT - Treatment Technique, or a required process intended to reduce the level of contaminate in drinking water.

Iron: Iron occurs naturally in our raw water and occasionally accumulates in the distribution system. Iron shows up as “red” or “rusty” water at your tap. Although you do not want to drink water that is not clear, iron is not considered to be a hazard to your health. We test for iron daily and it is usually around 0.2 ppm. The aesthetic limit for iron is 0.3 ppm. During the most recent round of Lead and Copper testing, 0 out of 20 households sampled contained concentrations exceeding the action level.

Sports Happenings

CHS

Continued from B1 Carlos Williams added a pair of singles for Covington. Covington led 1-0 through three innings on Wednesday against Spring Hill before the Raiders rallied for three in the fourth and one in the fifth. In the second inning, Covington's Kirk Winberry, who had two of Covington's four hit, doubled and came on a single by Skylar Ramsey. In the sixth, another single by Ramsey led to courtesy runner Johnston White scoring on an error for Covington's second run. With one out in the seventh, Williams reached on one-out single. Dylan Schlauch popped up with Williams stealing and a double play ended the game and the season.

Schlauch pitched will, going 4 and 2/3 with eight strikeouts and five hits allowed. Walker pitched the final 1 and 1/3, allowing no hits and striking out two. In 21 innings, Covington faced a left in all but the last two frames against Spring Hill, which lost to Goodpasture in the title game. “We faced three quality lefties,” Sage said. “You're not going to see that very often … It was just one of those deals where the team that makes the least amount of mistakes is going to win. I feel like we could have easily been in the championship game … And we could be right back here next year.”

TRA

MHS

Jordan Collins each had hits for TRA as well. Kimes went all seven innings for TRA, striking out five and allowing 11 hits. TRA lost seven games during the season: three to eventual DII-A state champ USJ and one each to DCA, Davidson and St. Benedict, all three of which advanced to the state tournament. “I'm pleased overall,” Layton said. “We just didn't get it done at the end.”

Stanford singled home Tori Ray, who singled and stole second, in the third inning. Tara Comer had Munford's other hit off Alex Holt, who went the distance for Arlington. The Lady Cougars return seven seniors next season.

Continued from B1
