Bell sentenced to death By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com After four days of hearing testimony from law enforcement, forensics experts and other witnesses, a Tipton County jury decided Friday afternoon that Rickey Bell Jr. was guilty of first-degree murder, felony murder, especially aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual battery in the June 2010 death of Drummonds woman Starr Harris, who was 36. It took the jury about three

hours to return the verdict. And after about 45 minutes of deliberating on the punishment, the jury decided to sentence Bell, 32, to death by lethal injection. “May God have mercy on your soul,” Judge Joseph Walker said to a stoic Bell after reading his sentence. “Right now I’m feeling really happy that my sister can finally rest in peace,” Tonya Aloia, Harris’s sister, said moments after Bell’s death sentence was announced. “She’s deserved

justice for a long time.” Bell’s attorneys James Gulley and Juni Ganguli contended that there was no physical evidence linking their client to the crime, which occurred approximately between 1:30 and 2 p.m. on June 1, 2010. Harris’s body was found behind her residence on Richardson Landing Lane in Drummonds in some woods later that night. Her body showed signs of a vicious assault that Assistanct District Attorney Walt Freeland

described as “consistent with being stomped to death.” Harris’s shirt was partially off and the rest of her clothes were in disarray. Two days after her body was found, detectives discovered what they believed was another crime scene in the woods about 80 feet away. Detectives testified that there was evidence that a body had been there and there were drag marks that led to where the body was found. At the second location a conSEE BELL, PAGE A3

DEATH PENALTY

Bell receives Tipton’s first death penalty By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com On Friday, Rickey Alvis Bell Jr. became the first person to be sentenced to death in Tipton County, a punishment for which District Attorney General Mike Dunavant is glad to see imposed. Last Friday, Bell, 32, was convicted of the June 2010 murder of Starr Harris, a Drummonds mother of three. Harris was sexually assaulted, strangled and beaten, then left for dead in the woods behind her Richardson Landing Lane home (see related story above). It took four days of testimony and three hours of deliberation for the jury to reach a guilty verdict. Dunavant said - Mike Dunavant, he is very District Attorney General pleased with the outcome of the trial. “Well, certainly we are appreciative of the jury’s verdict. We think it was the right decision. I felt like we had appropriate aggravating factors to impose the death penalty in Tennessee for that sentence.” Bell has already been transported to Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in Nashville, a facility home to 82 of Tennessee 86 death row inmates. Three are housed at a more solitary facility in Morgan County and the fourth is a female housed at the Tennessee Prison for Women. Riverbend is also home to infamous Lester Street murderer Jesse Dotson, convicted of killing five of his family members in Memphis in 2008, and Tipton

Smith named a top-notch teacher By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com Crestview Elementary School kindergarten teacher Janice Smith, Tipton County’s Teacher of the Year for Pre-K thru fourth grade, has been recently recognized as Tennessee’s Southwest Teacher of the Year. The honor recognizes the hard work and dedication Smith has shown throughout her 28 years of teaching. Those who know her often comment on how she is one of the first to arrive at school each morning and the last to leave. Smith is also the founder of Crestview’s now famous Kindergar-

ten Circus. “This is a big deal,” said Crestview principal Betty Glass. “It makes me feel very fortunate to have her here at Crestview. But, even before she received the accolades, I was very fortunate. She’s given her whole life to the kids and everything she does, she does to the Nth degree.” Smith is one of 10 regional winners for the state in the category of Pre-K thru fourth grade teachers. The Southwest region encompasses a total of 12 school districts and 69 elementary schools. She will advance to the state competition for Tennessee Teacher of the Year and the winners will be an-

nounced in the fall. Smith had no intentions on becoming a teacher. In fact, when she was in college, she was studying to become an opera singer. But a chance tutoring opportunity made her realize where her true talent laid. “I thought I wanted to be a singer,” she recalled, smiling. “I would go home on the weekends and flip my mother’s broom and that was my microphone. I would have the radio on in the background and I would sing until my mother would walk through and catch me singing instead of dusting and sweeping like I was supposed to be doing.

Donations sought for victim of mower accident By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com It is a day normally known for its pranks, but what happened to threeyear-old Dustin Lee Glass is no laughing matter. “April first will always be a bad day for me,” Chester Ederds, Dusty’s grandfather, said Tuesday afternoon. “He’s got a long

ways to go and so do I.” On Sunday, Dusty was sitting on his grandfather’s lap as he mowed grass in Millington. Chester said he and his brother have done it several times in the past. “I’d been going really slow, about one mile an hour, like I always did when they were with me.” Chester said he can’t remember everything that

happened, but said he turned his head to look at the grass and when he looked back up, Dusty was in front of the riding mower. “I shut it off when I saw him, but there was a little dew and I guess I slid forward enough …” And that’s when tragedy struck. Though the motor was

off, Chester said the blades kept turning and Dusty was hit by the mower. “My heart fell down into my ankles,” he said. “I knew he wasn’t dead because I saw him moving.” The mower cut the threeyear-old’s thumb, pinky and ring finger from his right hand and the skin and muscle from the inside of his right arm, from his

Covington’s Clean Up/Fix Up event to be held April 14 By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com Beautiful spring weather has arrived, flowers are blooming and folks are readying their yards and homes for the summer season.

Continued from A1 wanted to do.” She was asked to tutor the daughter of her music teacher and fell in love with the experience. “I went to school and tutored that child I didn’t realize that was what I was supposed to be doing,” said the Tipton County native. “I didn’t realize that my mother had always been a teacher. She taught Sunday school for 25 years and although she wasn’t a teacher like I am, looking back I see I inherited her gift of loving children. You have to love children if you are going to be a teacher because we are surrounded by them all day long.” Smith began her career teaching first grade, but soon discovered she didn’t like the experience. “I hated it,” she said, laughing. “I felt so restrictive. You didn’t have the opportunity to be flexible. In first grade, I had a reading group, a social studies group and a science group. I had a schedule I had to stay on constantly and I never felt that I was able to be creative.” After that first year, she asked to teach kindergar-

BELL

Continued from A1 dom and a novelty gun/ lighter were found, both of which contained DNA from Bell. Ganguli pointed out that that no evidence was found with Harris’s and Bell’s DNA. The condom did not contain Harris’s DNA. In closing arguments, Ganguli compared the trial to the one in the book “To Kill a Mockingbird,” in which a black man was wrongfully convicted of rape by an all white jury. The jury in the trial of Bell, who is black, consisted of 11 whites and one African American. Neighbors Andrew and Tommy Reddick testified that they saw Bell near the Harris house around the time of Harris’ death. There were some other people around the house around the same time, including a friend (Harry Ellens, also known as “Big Mo) and a Fed-Ex driver who delivered a package at 2:16 p.m. “They didn’t see Big Mo or the FedEx driver,” Ganguli said, “but they do remember seeing the black guy … Justice is not going to be served if you convict Ricky Bell. You need to let that man go.” Bell, who did not testify, said in a statement to police that he had been to the Harris house twice on the morning of June 1, once to collect money for working for Rick Harris, Starr’s husband, and a second time to dispute the amount of payment. Belinda Bell, Ricky’s mother, testified that her son was at their home on the couch at 2 p.m. on the day of the murder. The Bells lived down the street from the Harris family. Gulley and Ganguli suggested that Rick Harris had something to do with Starr’s murder. With the jury out of the courtroom, Rick Harris admitted to having an affair with Rebecca Harris, his ex-wife, in the months leading up to Starr’s murder. He testified that he was making plans to rendezvous with Rebecca Harris the day of Starr’s murder.

the end of the week, get out your walking shoes and sunscreen and invite a few friends and join the City of Covington for its annual walk across Covington on Saturday, April 14 beginning at 8 a.m. The yearly event celebrates Earth Day and urges residents to clean up their property. City workers will be doing extra routes next week to pick up debris left along-

side the curb. “We will have the trash trucks run continuously during the week in a concentrated effort to pick up residential trash,” said Robert M. Simpson, director of Public Works. “Every year more residents come out and help to make Covington a beautiful and cleaner city.” The clean up will begin at 8 a.m. at the city main-

tenance shop located at 410 E. Ripley St. Upon registration, volunteers will be given a T-shirt, garbage grabber and assigned a team leader and areas of the city to clean. At the conclusion of the clean up, volunteers will meet back at the city maintenance shop at noon for lunch. Door prizes, donated by Covington businesses, will be given away during

ten and that is where she has taught since and in the same classroom for almost three decades. “I don’t have that same rigid schedule. I don’t necessarily beat my drum to the same beat as everyone else,” said Smith. “Ms. Betty will let me go out side the box, as long as I keep the box inside. And I’m able to be creative and still meet the standards I need too.” “For anyone to have their child in her room for one year is a tremendous blessing,” said Glass. “She’s just wonderful. Our entire kindergarten is and Ms. Janice is the lead.” Smith has seen a lot of instructional changes throughout her long career and said she sometimes gets upset when people see her as no more than a babysitter. “I get very upset with people who tell me I am nothing but a glorified babysitter,” Smith said. “Because I’m going to tell you, we teach. It’s physically, emotionally draining. I am touched from the time I walk in the door until the time I go home by the needs of so many children. I have sacrificed time from being with my

family and friends. I love these children like they were my very own.” Although the work is demanding, Smith said she wouldn’t change a thing and say that she is right where the Lord wanted her to be. “Teaching is what I was born to do,” she said. “I want my children to walk in my room and know that this is a place where it’s safe and they can make a mistake and they can learn. That it doesn’t matter how smart you are, it doesn’t matter where you come from, none of that matters. If you want to be the president of the United States, you have the opportunity if you work hard enough and put your best foot forward. I want them to know that they can do anything they want to do.” Smith said if the day ever comes when she feels she can no longer teach children, she would like to teach others to teach. “If I ever decided that I am not physically able to meet the demands of teaching kindergarten, I would like to teach teachers how to teach,” she said, tearing up. “Somebody had posted on Facebook that I was teacher of

the year and I had a child that I had taught years ago who is now in her senior year of college send me an message. She told me, ‘I just wanted you to know that I love you so much and nobody has ever loved me the way that you loved me and I know its always a teacher’s dream to change a child’s life and I want you to know that you changed mine.’ It’s the little stuff like that. It’s made me realize that even though I am not a famous opera star, this is much better. I have done what I am supposed to have done.” Smith said she is honored to have received recognition as the teacher of the year but she is just doing what she loves. “It overwhelms me beyond words,” she said. “This has encompassed my entire life. Why me? I’m just a regular person and I would not be where I am without the wonderful support team of my co-workers and family. God played a big part in my decision to become a teacher. Teaching puts the twinkle in my eyes, the smile on my face and it is the essence of what I am.”

When the jury returned, Ganguli asked Harris, “You knew that Starr would be in the woods because you put her there, right?” “No sir,” Harris said. He said he last saw his wife at noon when he left the house on the way to Munford Tire. Rebecca Harris testified, with the jury out of the room, that Rick Harris kicked her in the stomach when she was pregnant with the cou-

ple’s child and regularly abused her. A spokesperson for the Bell family declined comment after the trail. District Attorney General Mike Dunavant said he was satisfied with the jury’s verdict. “We got all that the justice system in Tennessee, by law, allows,” Dunavant said. “You can’t get a higher sentence than the death penalty. We felt like all the proof was overwhelming.”

Appeals will follow, Dunavant said, that could take as long as 20 years to exhaust. “It’s the first win in a long battle,” Aloia said. “It’s the first step towards justice.”

DEATH

Continued from A1 Countian Donnie Johnson, convicted of firstdegree murder in Shelby County in 1985. Though he has been incarcerated in the Tipton County Correctional Facility since his June 2010 arrest for Harris’s murder, Bell is no stranger to prison. After committing crimes in Tipton County as a juvenile in the mid1990s, Bell was sent to a treatment facility in Pennsylvania. In 1997, he was convicted of carjacking, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment in Pennsylvania and was sentenced to 4-7 years. He ended up serving 13 years. Four months later, in June 2010, he was back in jail after being accused of murdering Starr Harris. “I can say, without a doubt, that this case was worked outstandingly, from top to bottom, from beginning to end, by the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the TBI,” Dunavant said. “They really had good physical and forensic proof, really had good eyewitness testimony and evidence. The whole case together really for us a simple and easy case to prove and to present to a jury.” Dunavant said he would be remiss if he did not say he was proud of the sentence. “Let me also give credit to my staff: assistant district attorneys Walt Freeland and Joe Van Dyke did an outstanding job preparing the case; Leslie Vickery worked with the family and made them feel at ease in the courtroom. They did a good job.” Capital punishment in Tennessee Bell has been sentenced to die by lethal injection, a punishment for capital offenses that became Tennessee’s primary method of execution in March 2000. Capital punishment has existed in Tennessee on and off throughout its history. When it first became a state in 1796, hangings were permitted by the state constitution and were allowed until 1913 when electrocution replaced it. Though he is the first person in Tipton County history to be sentenced to modern execution, and his death sentence is Tipton County’s first since records began in 1916, Bell would not be the first to die as a result of being convicted of murder in this county. Hangings were the preferred method of execution in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. On Aug. 16, 1881, Andrew Sanders was hanged for the murder of Michael Miller and William Johnson of Idaville was hanged on Dec. 17, 1897 for the murder of farmer Walter Boyd. The method of execution has changed from hanging to electrocution to lethal injection and the death penalty itself has

even been declared unconstitutional. In 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court declared the death penalty unconstitutionally cruel and inhuman. The Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976 and Tennessee adopted a new statute. In 1998, Tennessee law made lethal injection the method of execution for those committing capital offenses on or after Jan. 1, 1999. Those already on death row had the opportunity to choose how they’d die. During the sentencing hearing, which was held immediately after Bell’s conviction Friday, prosecutors had to prove four aggravating factors in order for a jury to impose the death sentence: Bell’s prior felony convictions involved violence, he committed murder in the perpetration of rape, he committed murder in the perpetration of kidnapping and that Starr Harris’s murder was heinous, atrocious and cruel. “The killing of any human being by another is heinous, atrocious and cruel, but (medical examiner) Dr. Funte testified that he caused enough bodily harm in his actions to kill her three different times.” It took less than an hour for the jury to sentence him to death. “I would have anticipated them staying out a little bit longer to determine what is the ultimate penalty, however, we felt like the evidence of guilt was overwhelming and the evidence of the need for the death penalty to be imposed was overwhelming,” Dunavant said Wednesday. There is no way to know when Bell may be executed, he said, due to the lengthy appeals pro-

Thursday, April 5, 2012 • THE LEADER • A3 cess that is mandated by state law. “That’s pretty standard and the direct appeal is an automatic procedure according to state law,” said Dunavant. “Any time you impose a penalty of death, you have multiple levels of court review to make sure Mr. Bell’s been afforded due process of law, a fair trial and all of the evidence points towards guilt but the appropriateness of sentencing. We believe that to be the case and we’ll be glad for that to be litigated.” Up next for Bell, he said, will be the May 4 sentencing for the sexual assault and kidnapping charges, then in July his lawyers will present to the court a motion for a new trial. Bell’s case will automatically be reviewed by the state supreme court and the court of criminal appeals. “It could be 20 years, best case scenario,” Dunavant said, noting that the oldest person on death row in Tennessee has been in prison since his 1978 conviction. Life on death row According to the Tennessee Department of Corrections, on death row, Bell will be subject

to strict supervision. He is currently classified as a behavioral level C, the lowest level, because he has just entered the prison system. He has the opportunity, through good behavior, to earn levels A or B, which mean more phone and visitation privileges or even applying for one of the few jobs available to death row inmates: cleaning, food preparation or data entry. Bell and other inmates in his unit are awakened at 5:30 a.m. and served three meals a day, during the week, in their cells. On weekends and holidays he will be served two meals. Breakfast is at 7 a.m., lunch is at 11 a.m. and dinner is at 5 p.m. TDOC says lights are out by 9 p.m. every night. His life is expected to continue this way until he is executed. In 2010-11, the average cost-per-day to house a TDOC inmate, including those housed at privately managed facilities, was $64.83, the department reports. The cost to house a death row inmate was $94.74. By comparison, last year the average costper-day to educate a pupil in Tipton County was $44.70.

Dunavant said he and his staff are glad, for the family of Starr Harris, to

see Bell receive the death penalty. “Justice prevailed.”

GOV. HASLAM PROCLAIMS APRIL AS TENNESSEE SAFE DIGGING MONTH (Covington Public Works) reminds local residents to call 811 before all digging projects

Nashville, TN (March 27, 2012) -Gov. Bill Haslam has issued a proclamation announcing April as Tennessee Safe Digging Month. The proclamation reminds Tennessee homeowners to call 811 before starting any outdoor digging projects. April marks the start of spring digging season, so (Covington Public Works), Tennessee811 and Gov. Haslam are encouraging homeowners to call 811 before they dig to prevent injuries, property damage and inconvenient outages. A utility line is damaged by digging once every three minutes nationwide, and one-third of these incidents are caused by failure of the professional excavator or homeowner to call 811 before beginning their digging project When calling 811, homeowners are connected to Tennessee811, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of the intent to dig. Professional locators are then sent to the requested digging site to mark the approximate locations of underground lines with flags or spray paint Once lines have been accurately marked, digging can begin around marked lines. "We join the governor in strongly encouraging individuals and companies to call 811 before they begin digging," said Kathy Quartermaine, Tennessee811 Marketing & Education Manager. "By having underground lines marked, homeowners are making an important decision that can keep help them and their communities safe and connected." Striking a single line can cause injury, repair costs, fines and inconvenient outages. Every digging project, no matter how large or small, necessitates a call to 811. Installing a mailbox, putting in a fence, building a deck and laying a patio are all examples of digging projects that need a call to 811 before starting. Visit www.caIl811.com or www.tennessee811.com for more information about 811 and the call-before-you-dig process.

Smaller bills equal large savings By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com The city of Covington is always searching for innovative ways to cut costs and save taxpayers’ money, while still getting the job done. They recently discovered that making a seemingly small change in the way they prepare customers bills for the city’s gas, water and sewage service will help decrease city expenditures by almost $2,500 a year. The change? Printing smaller bills and changing the placement of customer addresses. The new size is less than half an inch smaller than the previous bills but that change, along with the new placement of addresses would save the city $.04 a bill.

Covington has two billing cycles for its gas, water and sewage service and includes original bills and late notices, which means the city mails out bills four times each month. Last year, approximately 64,000 bills were been sent out. With the implementation of the new system, the city could realize an approximately savings of more than $2,500. With the changes, also comes automation said Tina Dunn, Covington recorder/treasurer. Where it used to take three to four hours to print 2,000 bills, it now only takes 20 minutes. “The city is always looking for cost-effective ways to save the taxpayers’ money and to be better stewards of the money we are responsible for,” said Dunn. “These changes, although small, does save the city money and that’s important to us.”

The Civil War and Tipton County: April 1862 Compiled by RUSSELL B. BAILEY Tipton County Historian During late February and March 1862, more of Tipton’s Confederate volunteers died of sickness: James E. Walker of Co. C, 9th Tennessee Infantry, died Feb. 20 at Covington. William H. Price, also of Co. C., a theology student and member of the Presbyterian Church died at Humboldt on March 14th. Both were buried at Mt. Carmel Cemetery. At least 9 men of the 51st Tennessee Infantry died during March: Henry M. Hall at Corinth; John W. Sherrill at a St. Louis hospital; the remaining seven were believed to have died at Camp Butler Prison in Illinois: W. A. Crouch, John Horne, William A. Larimore, T. J. McClellan, Aaron W. Moore, Jackson? T. Parrott and Joseph Pucket. The first of April found the Confederate Army of the Mississippi, commanded by Generals’ Albert Sidney Johnston and G. T. Beauregard, with 44,000 men at Corinth. On the 3d, the Southern army began their march northward to Pittsburg Landing on the Tennessee River where General U. S.

reinforcements from Middle Tennessee. The Confederate advance to Pittsburg Landing was hampered by rain and difficult muddy roads. Approximately fifty Tiptonians of the 51st Tennessee Infantry, Fort Donelson P.O.W.’s, suffered in Northern prisons. The majority of the Regiment was unarmed and left in reserve at Corinth as a provost guard. Some of the men were detailed to work on bridge building 3 miles from Corinth on the road to Shiloh. During the first week of April there were “several sudden deaths from brain fever,” including a 12-year old boy. On the 5th, the Regiment received marching orders that were later countermanded. Tipton’s soldiers at Corinth were in Gen. Leonidas Polk’s Corps. The Tipton Rifles, 4th Tennessee Infantry, joined Gen. A. P. Stewart’s Brigade, Gen. Charles Clark’s Division. The 4th Regiment numbered 512 men present for duty on the 2d. The next day the command received marching orders, cooked three day’s rations and began their march. On the 5th the men advanced to within four miles of the enemy “in fine spirits to meet the invader.” Tipton’s men in Co. C, 9th Tennessee. Infantry were in Colonel W. H. Stephens’ Brigade, Gen.

THE LEADER • Thursday, April 5, 2012 • A5

Early IRA funding can pay off over time You’ve got until April 17 to contribute to your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) for the 2011 tax year. That’s not a lot of time, but if you have some money available, and you haven’t completely funded your IRA for 2011, consider doing so before the deadline. And once you’ve “maxed out” on your IRA for last year, why not get a jump on 2012? Actually, you could have started contributing to your 2012 IRA as early as Jan. 2. In fact, if you can get into the habit of fully funding your IRA each January, you’ll give your money 15 extra months of growth potential, as opposed to waiting until mid-April of the following year. If you factor in all the years you’ll be contributing to your IRA before you retire, those extra months of growth opportunities, repeated over decades, could end up providing you with a fair amount of extra cash when you start tapping into your IRA at retirement. Of course, you may not find it all that easy to come up with the full IRA contribution amount at one time. (In 2012, you can put up

to $5,000 into a Roth or traditional IRA, or $6,000 if you’re 50 or older.) But if you look at your entire financial picture, you may be able to think of some resources. Here are a few suggestions: Put your tax refund to work. In 2011, the average tax refund was about $3,000, according to the IRS. If you received that amount in 2012, and you applied it toward your IRA, you would already have met half the contribution limit (if you are 50 or older) or more than half (if you’re younger than 50). Take advantage of interest payments or dividends. If you own income-producing investments, you may find that they can help you fund your IRA early. For example, if you own dividend-paying stocks, and you don’t typically reinvest the dividends, consider putting some of these funds into your IRA. (Keep in mind, though, that stocks can reduce or discontinue dividends at any time). And you can do the same thing with any interest payments you receive from bonds. Put other “windfalls” into your IRA. If you receive a windfall, such

as a bonus from your employer or a gift of cash, think about putting it into your IRA. If none of these options present themselves, and you can’t afford to write out a big check to fund your IRA very early in the year, do the best you can to reach the contribution limit as soon as possible. To make this happen, consider setting up a monthly automatic transfer from your checking or savings account into your IRA. Even if you were to divide these transfers into 15 equal payments totaling $5,000 (or $6,000 if you’re 50 or older), you would still be funding your IRA more quickly than if you woul Early IRA Funding Can Pay Off Over Time d have scrambled to contribute in the last few months before the tax filing deadline. No matter when you do it, fully funding your IRA is a great way to help build resources for retirement. But the earlier, the better — so do whatever you can to beat that tax deadline each year.

The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development is making preparations to suspend unemployment benefits for claimants in the Extended Benefit (EB) program. More than 10,000 claimants who are in the last 20 of 99 weeks available will receive their last benefit payment the week of April 12, 2012. The EB program is triggered on and off by the health of Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unemployment rate. The trigger rate is based on a â&#x20AC;&#x153;look-backâ&#x20AC;? provision of three years. To remain triggered on, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current rate must be higher than 120 percent of the average rate three years ago. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current rate recently dropped to 8.0 percent, dipping below the threshold to continue the program.

Open Business Directory is the latest Yellow Pages scam to victimize Mid-South businesses existing Yellow Pages listings or simply providing information for a free online listing. They were surprised and outraged when they received a bill for over $1,100 to pay for the listing. One Memphis business owner said that the company sent her a fax offering a free Facebook page and requesting updated contact information. Details about the charge were buried in small type at the bottom of the page. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bill her until after their 30-day cancellation period had expired and say sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now obligated to a 2-year contract. Another Memphis business owner said the company called to simply update addresses. There was no discussion about advertising services or fees of any kind. Months later they received a bill from Yellow-PageUSA.com.

The BBB offers the following tips to businesses dealing with Yellow Pages solicitations: â&#x20AC;˘ Look closely at any Yellow Pages-related solicitation. If you have a question about its legitimacy, contact the Yellow Pages representative you have dealt with for previous advertising. â&#x20AC;˘ Be especially careful when asked to give information about your business over the telephone or via mailed, emailed or faxed forms. Supplying such information could be seen as agreeing to an advertising or online listing contract. â&#x20AC;˘ Channel all invoices through one department and make sure they are cleared with the appropriate executives before they are paid.

Mayor Cole addresses business professionals Munford Mayor Dwayne Cole recently addressed a group of 59 business professionals and community leaders about â&#x20AC;&#x153;the state of the city.â&#x20AC;? The Mayor began his remarks by reviewing highlights of the last decade including being named the 4th Most Affordable Suburb in America in 2009, expanding services to citizens and customers, passing balanced budgets, and increasing public safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When some communities were cutting back and laying off workers, we were expanding our services,â&#x20AC;? said Cole. He talked of new opportunities in economic development with the purchase of the property on Highway 51 near McDonalds by developer Pete Parker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been working with Pete to provide needed infrastructure to service new businesses sure to locate here.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Cole also mentioned The Village at Green Meadows, a new upscale residential development located on McCormick Road. The first phase of this development will be a gated 55 and older community, with â&#x20AC;&#x153;various amenities including tennis courts, pool, and meeting rooms.â&#x20AC;? These homes will also include safe rooms for protection from tornados. The Mayor mentioned the various public facility projects recently completed and now underway, stating that the new fire station is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the hub of activity in downtown. The most recent example of this was the Honor/Benefit Ride for Cpl. Christian Brownâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x153;We raised $16,250 for CB, hosted over 750 cycles and thousands of people.â&#x20AC;? In current and new projects, the Mayor discussed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;log cabinâ&#x20AC;? remodel as the home of the South Tipton Chamber of Commerce, and the proposed City Hall Renovation and Munford Police Department Expansion. It was an enlightening and enjoyable evening and the Mayor concluded his remarks declaring, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are moving forward.â&#x20AC;?

The Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation, and Governor Haslam signed into law this threeyear â&#x20AC;&#x153;look-backâ&#x20AC;? provision to allow Tennessee to remain triggered on to EB until Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total unemployment rate improved enough to trigger off of the program. In February 2012, federal legislation was enacted that changed the structure of the remaining federal benefits. It reduces the number of benefit weeks available from a maximum of 99 to 73 weeks in September 2012 and places unemployment rate triggers on the total weeks available. All federal unemployment benefits are set to expire at the end of 2012.

Almyra Libby Click Hi everyone, I wish you all a very Happy Easter. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very special holiday for Christians. Of course the children love all the egg hunts. Now it seems most hide plastic eggs. When my children were young, I boiled real eggs and dyed them. It was as much fun to eat them as it was to find them. We have had some beautiful weather, however I hear we are supposed to get a change soon. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still staying out of the yard because of the poison ivy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better, but

every time I go outside I come in itching. Bless his heart, Charlie has a honey do list that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not used to. He may become a gardener soon. Speaking of weather, we had quarter size hail last week and big raindrops. It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped the ball games yet, but it probably will this week. My little Addie hit three home runs last week. It was awesome. Neighborhood Watch We will meet at 6 p.m. this Thursday night. Miss Courtney Fee will be our guest speaker. Hope to see you there.

Brighton Debe Simonton Hello my dear friends, what, what is this? Already April, where did March go? I cannot believe the year is a quarter already gone! Okay what is this all about, Arkansas says that teachers and students can have consensual sex if the student is 18 or over! But the state reserves the right to take the teachers license if caught. Boy, is that backwards. And our state is banning the low riding pants? I agree, I absolutely hate looking at the behind of a kid with his boxers hanging out! But, to make it a law for the school systems? Shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the schools have the ban anyway? My good-

Keeping my weight down is a big fight but so far, I appear to be winning! Plus, I still look good! Well, I think so, haha! I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if or what my family is planning for me this year, however, being that its falls on Easter and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very busy holiday for everyone, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just take whatever I get!

This past Sunday was Palm Sunday, when Jesus rode into the city of Jerusalem. This whole week will play out the mission of Jesus to give to us the Atonement. How much He loves us to die for us. It is hard for me to comprehend how He suffered for me. Whenever I see the reenactment of the Crucifixion I get so humble, grateful, totally emotional. If you can get your head in the right spot the Spirit can witness this truth. If you start with St. John chapter 12 in the Bible it will take you through the whole week leading up to His death and resurrection. My heart breaks when I read about the disciples denying Him. Simon Peter said he would lay down his life for him but when the time came he forsook Him. Denying he even knew Him, to keep from

She is okay now but has had some health problems as well as another friend Louise Vandergrift. Please remember them in your prayers and have a wonderful week.

Mt. Carmel Elaine Watkins The weatherman said yesterday that this warm spring won’t necessarily mean a super-hot summer. My trusty Farmer’s Almanac says we’re in for a “wet, mild summer” and it was right about the “wet, mild winter.” Which brings me to this week’s farm report: winter wheat is beautiful, heading out. Lots of corn being planted and some is up. Spraying fields to keep weeds down so we won’t have to plow and lose those natural resources through erosion. Won’t be long before soy-

beans and cotton will be sowed. Kirby Powell, brideelect of Drew Kinningham, had a big shower Sunday at the Covington Church of Christ. My favorite thing she received was a beautiful cake plate that Mary Beasley made. Just beautiful! Best wishes to this couple as they marry in May and live in Missouri, where Drew already is working. J. J. Brown is recovering from knee surgery, Aerik and Kali Langston are recovering from a procedure and Anna Kate Dalrymple is recover-

ing from a tonsilectomy. Joyce Whaley and Dale Laxton have both had tests. Jimbo Edmonds, Craig Randolph, Geneva Travis, Trey Erwin and so many others are in our prayers, as well as our servicemen and women, and voters. Everyone at church is getting ready for Lads to Leaders this weekend. We have a dress rehearsal Wednesday night, when the boys say their speeches and lead singing. Puppets and short films the children and teens have made will be before the regular worship hour. Big

night and big weekend! An Easter egg hunt will be after the morning services. We will have a Marriage Seminar at 9:30 a.m. and during the worship hour on April 15th. Everyone is invited. There will be a potluck meal around noon, then another part of the Seminar. Stan and Sheila Butt are speaking and they are supposed to be phenomenal on this subject. Happy Birthday this week goes to Tonya Hill on March 24th (sorry it’s late!), to Parker Speight on April 3rd, to Judy Randolph on the 6th, to

Dunlap Retirement Center rots stuffed with goodies. They loved it and what a great group of kids. Kudos to whoever is working with them. Thank you Salem Youth and all the youth leaders, ya’ll are the best. We played host to Girl Scout Troop #10107 this past Friday night when Kim and Melanie were brave souls and did a lock-in, in our Fellowship Hall here on campus. It looks so good to see kids out running around playing on the grounds! That’s what this place was built for back in 1905, so I’m sure “the grounds were happy.” The neatest thing about the Girl Scouts coming and using your facility, they leave this place cleaner when they leave than when they come. That’s their motto, and they carry through every time. Then they cleaned out two of our flowerbeds and planted flowers. The beautiful colors they chose are breath taking! It really added color to the green

only bushes and trees. Thank you Girl Scouts, ya’ll did a good job! If your girls have extra time on their hands and want to do something worthwhile, get them involved in Girl Scouts! Just a quickie note about our Springfest, in which the girls are also going to be involved in rolling dough again this year for Ms. Patsy’s famous fried fruit pies! Yes that’s right; once again Ms. Patsy gave me the go on cooking her pies! Ya’ll just need to come and have one of her pies. They are so good! It’s also a sight to see in the making of these things and it’s so good to teach these younger girls how to do things like that. Thank you Ms. Patsy. Anyway, our Springfest will be May 19th here at Dunlap Retirement Center starting at 10 a.m. and ending at 3 p.m. We have all sorts of things planned. But I would like to once again ask my readers to please bring

Kathy Keiter l 476-7014 Hello everybody! Hope you’re all having a blessed week! Mine started out so wonderful. We had the most awesome time of worship at my church this week. If your heart didn’t get prepared for the Easter season from that time of worship this morning then nothing is gona prepare you. Thank you so much Carol! You are absolutely amazing. I know it was a team effort, but I also know you were the brainchild behind it all. I wish everyone in the world could have experienced it. This week at Dunlap is Ms. Louise Gupton’s birthday! Happy b’day Ms. Louise. We love you so much and wish you the very happiest b’day. We have one more b’day this month and its one of our staff members, Darlene Davis on the 17th. Happy b’day Darlene.

Denise Cartwright on the 8th and to Sherri Kidd (and her twin Terri Barber) on the 9th! Again, I am so excited about us going to two services on April 22nd. Our early service will be at 8:45 with Sunday school following at 10; the latter service at 11 a.m. James and I signed up for the late services - 30 more minutes of sleep! We’ve outgrown our building built in 1966, with two add-ons and a auditorium renovation a few years ago. The two services will continue until we get a new au-

up! Easter is almost here! I can’t believe it! I thought it was just January a week or two ago. As Easter arrives there’s a lot going on in Burlison. There is a Community Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake Breakfast being hosted at Smyrna Baptist Church, this Saturday, April 7. Breakfast begins at 9 a.m. and the Egg Hunt will follow. Easter Morning Sunrise Services will also take place at Smyrna on Sunday, April 8, at 7 a.m. The entire community is invited to come attend this wonderful worship service.

Encouraging kids to save UT Extension teamed up with local banks to encourage youth to start early, saving money and setting money goals for the future. As part of the Tennessee Saves Initiative, developed by the University of Tennessee Extension, the goal of the program is to encourage better financial responsibility. In February, two programs were presented to the youth of Tipton County – the 2012 Piggy Bank Pageant and Teach Kids to Save program. Over 85 youth in the third, fourth, and fifth grades participated in the initiative by constructing piggy banks for Tipton’s County Piggy Bank Pageant. Students were encouraged to design a functional bank using any theme or material. Local banks provided ribbons for all participating students and cash prizes to the winners to help them get a jump-start on their money goals. Winners received $50.00 for first place, $40.00 for second place and $25.00 for third place. Sponsorship for the 2012 Piggy Bank Pageant was provided by the following: Patriot Bank, Bancorp South, First State Bank and Bank of Tipton. UT Extension would like to thank Tennessee Saves members, local banks, volunteers and principals, staff, and students from the following schools for supporting the Piggy Bank Pageant: Austin Peay Elementary, Brigh-

ton Elementary, Covington Integrated Arts Academy, Crestview Elementary, Drummonds Elementary and Munford Elementary. Congratulations to the 2012 Tipton County Piggy Bank Pageant winners! 3rd Grade Division: 1st place - Breona Smith (CES); 2nd place - Abigail Gallardo (CIAA); 3rd place - Klara Cope (BES) 4th Grade Division: 1st place - Haley Wilson (DES); 2nd place - Ben Roberts (BES); 3rd place - Tristan Linn (BES) 5th Grade Division: 1st place - Taylor Jones (DES); 2nd place - Ashton Brown (BES); 3rd place - Hannah Humprineus (AES) In addition to the Piggy Bank Pageant, UT Extension and area banks further pushed the importance of saving money to second grade students at Crestview, Munford, Brighton, Austin Peay, and Drummonds Elementary schools along with Covington Integrated Arts Academy. UT Extension worked very closely with Bancorp South, Bank of Tipton, First State Bank, Regions Bank, Patriot Bank and the FDIC to help promote the Teach Kids to Save program. This program included reading age-appropriate books about money and implementing money games and activities to help students realize that by starting to save now will make an impact for them in the future.

BRIGHTON 5 MUNFORD 3

MHS falls to Hardin County

Rivalry Win

By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Munford made the long trek to Savannah on Monday for a doubleheader against District 13-AAA leading Hardin County with hopes of taking over first place. But the Cougars (7-7 overall, 2-2 district) suffered a pair of tough losses to fall two games behind the Tigers in the league standings. In the first game Munford grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning on an RBI double from Stephen Stewart. But Hardin County pushed a run across in the top of the seventh and won it with four runs in the top of the ninth. Josh Hibbard and Ryan Bargery singled for Munford's only other hits in the game. Hunter Barber pitched well, allowing just four hits and striking out eight over six and 2/3 innings. In the nightcap, Munford led 6-1 after Josh Hibbard hit a bases-loaded double in seventh, but Hardin County rallied for an 8-6 win, punctuated by a three-run walk-off homer. Kale Fultz pitched six-plus innings for Munford before being relieved by Jeremy Reeves. The Cougars return to action today at home against Bolton at 7 p.m., and Friday at 6:30 p.m. at home against White Station. Munford gets back to district action Monday at home against BrighSEE MHS, PAGE A21

Lady Cards overcome slow start, defeat MHS By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com

Leading 3-1 through four and half innings Monday night, things were looking pretty good for the Munford Lady Cougars in their District 13-AAA opener at Brighton.

But it the bottom of the fifth, Munford (10-7 overall, 0-1 district) committed three errors that led to four Brighton runs and a 5-3 Lady Cardinal win. After Haley Craig and Laura Judy led of the bottom of the inning with singles, Munford misplayed a bunt that led to the first two runs. A third error led to a third Brighton (10-3, 1-0) tally and Bri McBride drove in another with a double. “We knew they were going to bunt a lot,” said Munford coach Glenn Goulder. “We just didn't handle it very well.” Judy took care of the rest, finishing off a complete game by allowing just one Munford baserunner over the final two innings. She struck out five and allowed five hits and two walks.

Munford's Alex Turner hit a two-run homer, her third of the season, in the first inning. “The difference in the game,” Judy said, “was that we stayed together as a team after that homerun.” “They're the team that everybody is chasing,” Brighton coach Robin Jacobs said about Munford. “They're a good team. I don't know that we're at their level yet, but we got a break and took advantage of it … We hung in there and kept fighting.” Jacobs said Judy kept her team in the game after a rough first inning. “She pitched really good and we played good defense,” Jacobs said. “We didn't make mistakes behind her.” Ali Christmas came up with an RBI single in the bottom of the third with the bases loaded to trim Munford's lead to 2-1. Munford turned a double play to get out of the inning without further damage. In the top of the fifth Sami Jo Schulz singled for Munford and scored from first on a double by Tori Ray to push the lead to 3-1. SEE RIVALRY, PAGE A22

By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com The Lady Chargers had a good early week and a not so good week on the road in tourney action in Southaven, Miss., as they ran their season record to 7-4-1 during Spring Break. Saturday was a marathon that saw the Lady Chargers play three tournament games in succession. They opened with a 4-0 win over Jonesboro. Hannah Clifton got the win on the mound allowing a single. She walked three and struck out seven. Gabby Glenn, Shelby Bolding and Jasmine Brown had two hits apiece. Desoto Central took down the Lady Chargers in the middle game of the day 3-1. Gabby Glenn took the loss, giving up seven hits with one walk and one strikeout. Glenn had a pair of hits and Whitney Cook had a single. “The same pitcher gave us the same problems,” said Covington coach Martha Lawler. “ She was not overpowering, just really smart.” Covington closed out the day with an 11-1 win over the Arlington Lady Tigers. CHS scored one in the first inning and then blew the game open with 10 runs in the third. Autumn Glenn picked up the win. She hit a batter, allowed two hits and no walks with six strikeouts. She also paced the CHS offense with a single and a double. Clifton added a pair of singles. “Both Arlington pitchers struggled,” Lawler said. “They walked five and hit two batters to aide our offense.” On Friday in tourney action, Desoto Central took the measure of CHS 2-1. CHS managed a single run in the sixth on Bolding’s RBI-single. She drove in Gabby Glenn, who was 3 for 3 in the game. Abby Glenn took the loss. She walked one, gave up four hits and struck out four. “We had great difficulty with their pitcher,” Lawler said after the loss. On Monday, Gbby Glenn stopped the Collierville Lady Dragons 8-0 with a 4-inning stint on the mound. She allowed only two hits, struck out six and walked one. Her sister Gabby closed out on the mound givSEE CHS, PAGE A21

Chargers sweep pair from Cards Max complete game leads way in game one By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com The Covington Chargers closed out a week in which they went 3-1 with a home-and-home sweep of the Brighton Cardinals over the weekend. A narrow 4-3 Covington win was the order of the day in Covington on Friday night. D.J. Max (2-0) earned the completegame win. He allowed five hits and no earned runs as three CHS errors gave Brighton their only tallies in the contest. The Chargers managed seven singles with Kirk Winberry and Carter Click accounting for a pair each and one RBI apiece. Tommy Beasley chipped in a single, a run scored and an RBI. Nathan Newman took the loss for Brighton. The Cardinals (5-8) jumped on top in Saturday’s matinee at Brighton with a pair of runs in the second inning. CHS tied the game at 2-2 in the top of the third, only to fall behind again as

the Cardinals added two in the bottom of the frame. Covington scored three in the top of the sixth inning to take a 5-4 lead and added a pair of runs in the top of the seventh to seal the deal. Tyler Davis went four innings for Covington, allowing four hits, two earned runs and five walks before giving way to Jon Hayden Bowers (2-0), who got the victory in relief. He pitched two innings giving up a hit and two walks. Dylan Schlauch picked up his first save of the year in one inning of work. He allowed the Cardinals a run on 1 hit and 1 walk. Brian Tomlinson took the loss for Brighton. Beasley produced two RBI on a single and a double for CHS. Carlos Williams, Schlauch and Skylar Ramsey each had an RBI. Covington travels to Batesville (Ark.) for a weekend tourney facing Beebe, Searcy and El Dorado on Friday and Saturday. The Cardinals will play a pair District 13-AAA games Monday and Tuesday night against Munford. Monday's game is at Munford and Tuesday's is at Brighton.

In other action: • Covington opened the week with a 9-8 loss to the White Station Spartans. The Chargers fell behind in the first inning 4-0, but staged a comeback with three in the bottom of the frame. The Spartans added two runs in the third to increase their lead to 6-4, only to see Covington roar back with a single run in the bottom of the inning and add four more in the fourth to take an 8-6 advantage. It would not last as the Spartans touched up Schlauch (2-1) for three in the sixth inning for the win. Schlauch went the distance in the loss, allowing 13 hits and six earned runs with 10 strikeouts and four walks. Three big Charger errors hurt the CHS effort. Covington pounded out 11 hits with Davis and Ramsey leading the way each with a pair of singles and two RBI. • The Chargers bounced back on Tuesday with a late-inning rally to down the Bolton Wildcats 7-3. CHS trailed most of the game and was down 3-1 entering the seventh when the offense exploded and put a six spot on the board to take the win. SEE SWEEP, PAGE A21

COMMENTARY

Will we make the little ones stumble? By EMILY PEYTON COOK

Two people from one whole generation of Israelites made it to the Promised Land because of the sin. Two. Dos. Eštạyim. Joshua, Caleb and the children 20 years and younger at the time they spied out the land, moved in to the Promised Land after God won their battles for them. All the Israelites between 20-40 perished before receiving their inheritance. Why? From Joshua 14:7-9: “Remember what the Lord said to Moses, the man of God, about you and me…I was forty years old when Moses, the servant of the Lord, sent me from Kadeshbarnea to explore the land of Canaan. I returned and gave an honest report, but my brothers who went with me frightened the people from entering the Promised Land. For my part, I wholeheartedly followed the Lord my God. So that day Moses solemnly promised me, ‘The land of Canaan on which you were just walking will be your grant of land and that of your descendants forever, because you wholeheartedly followed the Lord my God. Did you catch that? He followed the Lord with his whole heart. He lived without the fear of man but trusted in God's promises alone to save him and bring him to the Promised Land. Barna statistics say that the average church going family misses 17 Sundays a year. That means out of 52 Sundays, the average "Christian" goes to church 35 times out of a 52 week year and misses 4 months of church. The Lord com-

mands one day for Himself during the week. He also says in Hebrews 11:25: And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Most of us who grew up in the Bible belt knew from a very early age that Sunday was God's day and it was to be kept holy and a remembrance and celebration of what Christ did for us on the cross that first resurrection Sunday. Now many of us who were at one time leaders in our youth groups and there every time the doors were open are sitting at a dusty field running the opposite way from God’s will and God’s umbrella of protection. I see from scripture that God requires my whole heart. If I can't give it to Him on the one day He commands, how will I give it to Him the rest of my week? If He doesn't even have my heart on His day, how can He have the heart of my life? Remember, consequence always follows sin and we don’t get to choose the consequence. I believe this is generational sin. I want my children’s generation to be able to carry on the legacy of faith that I know and continue winning this world for Christ. If we keep going in the way we are going, away from God's way, there may only be a Joshua and a Caleb, who see the Promised Land in their day. God always leaves a remnant of His people, even if it is just two. We, as true believers, have been promised a land, an eternity in heaven with Christ. But, do we

live, much like the Israelites, in fear that this is all we have, this one life in the flesh? I know that there will be consequences for the generations to come, for my generation and the generation before me forsaking church for a season. There is no way around it. You see it in scripture all over the place, societies putting other gods before the Lord and punishment following to the third and forth generations. Mark 9:42 says "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea.” I believe with all my heart that if we don't give the Lord's day back to Him and serve Him with our whole heart, not just in the off season, our children will pay and we will have to answer to God for the blood on our hands. If you have made it a habit to be away from church for a season, it's not too late. This Sunday is Easter, the epitome of a brand new start and a brand new life. Repent. Turn back around and head away from the field or whatever has been keeping you absent from church and head toward God's house, not just for Easter, but for good. God will bless your obedience. Dear believer, you are the light of the world, a city on a hill, the example of what a Christian is to a lost society of people. Return to the church so we can be the body of Christ the way it was designed to be. Join me in praying for revival of hearts towards God.

Munford Water System Water Quality Report 2011 Is my drinking water safe? Yes, our water meets all of EPA’s health standards. We have conducted numerous tests for over 80 contaminants that may be in drinking water. As you’ll see in the following chart, we only detected seven of these contaminants. We found all of these contaminants at safe levels. What is the source of my water? Your water, which is ground water, comes from the confined tertiary 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 Munford Water System 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.us/environment/dws/dwassess. shtml or you may contact the Water System to obtain copies of specific assessments. A wellhead protection plan is available for your review by contacting Lynn Hughey at the Munford Water System between 7:00 A.M. to 4:00 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 Enviromental 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 Lynn Hughey at 901-837-5974. How can I get involved? Our Water Board meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Munford Municipal Building located at 69 College St. Please feel free to participate in these meetings. Is our water system meeting other rules that govern our operations? The State and EPA require us to test and report on our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. We have met all of these requirements. Results of unregulated contaminant analysis are available upon request. We want you to know that we pay attention to all the rules. Other Information The sources of drinking water (both tap and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occuring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and

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

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

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 0.04 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.
