DECISION 2012

Candidates introduce themselves By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Candidates running in the upcoming elections had the chance to meet their potential constituents during an open forum hosted by the South Tipton Chamber and the Covington-Tipton County Chamber of Commerce Tuesday. Though most shared their background, several candi-

dates mentioned the platforms on which they're running. Terry Mullins, for instance, spoke about term limits while Debra Moody spoke about budgeting. Both candidates – in addition to Conneye Albright, Tommy Hill, Rory Bricco and Randy McKee – are running to fill the District 81 seat in the Tennessee House of Representatives that will soon be

vacated by longtime incumbent and former Speaker of the House Jimmy Naifeh. "I think I'm a lot like many of you," said Mullins, a Navy veteran. "I've got a burnin' in my belly and a hurtin' in my heart over the direction of this country. I think we've gotta do something about it. The only thing that we can do … is institute term limits. I'm willing to fight for that."

While no other candidate is running on a term limit platform, most have spoken about changing the dynamics of government. Democratic candidate Conneye T. Albright, who teaches at Munford Middle School, said through running for Naifeh's seat she is taking her own advice. "I'm always telling my students they need to do right,

they need to be a good citizen," she said, noting a desire to help the public schools. "I'll prevent and protect public safety … I'll work to make public schools the best they can be … I'll fight to return our state to government that's by and for the people of Tennessee and Tipton County." Independent candidate Tommy Hill said he'd work to defend Tipton County just SEE FORUM, PAGE A3

to be voted. However, I declare that my argument and my vote answer only to my conscience and to my obligation to my constituents and the citizens this body represents.” The vote of any such member having a conflict of interest who does not so inform the governing body of such conflict shall be void if challenged in a timely manner. As used in this subdivision (c)(1), “timely manner” means during the same meeting at which the vote was cast and prior to the transaction of any further business by the body. Haywood further explained that although it does appear that Alderman Smith’s vote did constitute a conflict of interest, it was deemed an “indirect” rather than a “direct” con-

Former Tipton County Clerk Clara McMillin, who served citizens in various positions, died Friday at the age of 90. McMillin, who was born on June 6, 1922 to James Russell Hill and Mary Sloan Hill, was the first woman elected to the office of county court clerk. “She was strictly a people person,” said Pam Deen White, her successor as county clerk and co-worker for more than a quarter century. “If you needed money for lunch she would make sure you ate lunch.” Raised in the Flatwoods community, McMillin attended Gilt Edge Elementary School and graduated from Munford High School in 1940. Following graduation, she began working for Fisher Aircraft in Millington. Later that year, on November 29, 1940, she was married to Albert Sidney “Little Boy” McMillin. She kept house, worked on the family farm and in her fatherin-law’s general store before teacher at Gilt Edge Elementary School and eventually going to work for the county. McMillin served as deputy clerk in the Tipton County Court Clerk’s office for 12 years under Henry Vaughn before being elected as clerk in 1962. White said McMillin may be the first female elected to office in Tipton County. Sources say she earned the respect of her peers in county and state government as well as citizens for the “exemplary” quality of her work. “She was a wonderful lady who really cared about people and helping people,” said White. “She was a ‘PR’ person before ‘PR’ was even ‘PR!’” On August 31, 1994, McMillin retired from office after 44 years of distinguished service and the following day was declared

Mason addresses conflict of interest By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com A recent disclosure brought into question the validity of the hiring of Mason’s new town recorder in October 2011 and asked whether the hiring presented a conflict of interest for the Mason Board of Mayor and Aldermen. During a recent interview about the misstatements she made to The Leader and WMC-TV, former Mason alderwoman Abbey Cross revealed that Mason Alderman David Smith is the husband of the new town recorder, Mitzi Smith. When the town’s minutes were checked, it was recorded that during the Oct. 10, 2011 board meeting, the vote to hire Smith was 5 to 1. The mayor re-

vealed that Alderman Mike Harris casted the nay vote, which left aldermen Frank Boyland, Linnie Waddell, Abby Cross, Ben Sellers and Smith’s husband, David, voting to hire her and to set her salary at $32,000. Mayor David Ward and Mason town attorney James Haywood were questioned whether they felt a conflict of interest had been presented. Haywood said he was unaware that Smith had voted for his wife, but Ward acknowledged that he had, indeed, voted. Both the mayor and Haywood said they would look into the incident but agreed they could see where the vote could be perceived as a conflict of interest. A statement issued by the town attorney explained that after conferring with

a consultant and attorney from the Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS), the regulations pertaining to that particular situation could be found in Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 12-4-101 c (1) which states: Any member of a local governing body of a county or municipality who is also an employee of such county or municipality and whose government predates the member’s initial election or appointment to the governing body of the county or municipality may vote on matters in which the member has a conflict of interest if the member informs the governing body immediately prior to the vote as follows: “Because I am an employee of (name of governmental unit), I have a conflict of interest in the proposal about

the back seat. Tuesday afternoon Garlock admitted to smoking marijuana before getting into the vehicle but defends her decision to get behind the wheel with her daughter in the car. “It’s a lot better than drinking and driving or taking pills and driving,” she said. “No one ever died from smoking weed!” The National Institute on Drug Abuse says marijuana

intoxication can cause distorted perceptions, impaired coordination, difficulty with thinking and problem solving, and problems with learning and memory. Despite studies that prove otherwise, Garlock said she does not believe marijuana inhibits reaction times. “Maybe for some people, but not for me,” she said. Garlock was pulled over at a police checkpoint at Simmons SEE MOTHER, PAGE A2

Continued from A1 and Wilkinsville because she wasn’t wearing her seatbelt, Tipton County Sheriff Pancho Chumley said in a release Monday. Deputies smelled marijuana while conducting the traffic stop. “Further investigation found that Garlock allegedly attempted to destroy the narcotics and paraphernalia as she was being detained for the traffic violation, but the contraband was recov-

ered,” said the sheriff. She was booked into the Tipton County Correctional Facility at approximately 1:02 a.m. and was charged with felony child abuse/neglect, violation of the seatbelt law, tampering with evidence, possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to deliver and simple possession of marijuana. The baby, who is less than a year old, was placed in the custody of a family member at the time of her mother’s arrest. “It doesn’t appear that

this young mother was making clear decisions as to the welfare of her infant child,” Chumley said. “She unfortunately exposed her child to an unhealthy, dangerous situation with potential health risks. The safety of any child is paramount to us, especially when they are subjected to environments such as this.” During the phone interview, Garlock remained unremorseful and was very angry that news of her arrest had made its way to the press, even to a news station in Califor-

Continued from A1 flict, based on the fact that Mrs. Smith was hired with a 5-1 vote and even if her husband has abstained, the vote still would have been 4-1 and she still would have been hired. To prevent the appearance of impropriety in the future, Haywood said as the town’s attorney, he would instruct the board members to be always attentive of what they were voting on.

CLERK

Continued from A1 “Clara McMillin Day” in Tipton County. On that day, as well as on her 80th birthday in 2002, she was recognized by the Tennessee House of Representatives. In addition to her tenure as county clerk, McMillin also served as vice-chairman of the board of directors of Union Savings Bank in Covington, charter member of the Business and Professional Women’s Club of Tipton County, president and board member of the Covington-Tipton County Chamber of Commerce, a member and Past Worthy Matron of the Order of the Eastern Star of Munford and as a Sunday School teacher, among other notable positions. Additionally, McMillin was named Outstanding Female Citizen of Tipton County by the Junior Auxiliary in 1993 and Outstanding Citizen of Tipton County by the Tipton county Senior Citizens Association. She was a lifelong member of New Salem United Methodist Church. McMillin was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 42 years, brother J.R. and sisters Christine Curtis, Mary Glynn Sturdivant and Bessie Wooten.

“I will personally inform all of the board members to always be mindful of what is being voted upon and to abstain from voting or follow the procedures set out in the [Tennessee Code Annotated],” he wrote in a letter dated June 7 to this reporter. “The more prudent route is to always avoid any appearance of any impropriety.”

She is survived by sons Challace Joe McMillin (Mary Lou) of Harrisonburg, Va. and Robert Wayne McMillin (Paulette) of Germantown; grandchildren Lisa McMillin Wooley (Mike) of Nashville and Sid McMillin of Pray, Mont.; and great-grandchildren

Christopher and Rachael Wooley. Funeral services took place on Tuesday, June 19. She was buried at Covington Memorial Gardens. For more information, see obituary on page A6.

I don’t understand why this was even released because I know people who’ve done way worse.” She was released on a $5,000 bond approximately 10 hours later and is due back in court on Aug. 14.

With a little help from her friends By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com One of the benefits to living in a small community is whether or not you are Tipton County born or bred, you’re treated like family. Cindy Graves of Covington is discovering first hand when there’s a need, the community comes together to help meet that need. Graves, an employee of Old Town Hall on the square in Covington, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and her friends and customers have rallied to her aid. Besides the prayers and words of encouragement, they are working hard to raise funds to pay for Graves’ medical treatments and cost of living expenses. Graves, originally from Dyersburg, is unable to work while receiving chemo treatments and has no other source of income. “It all started when Eunice Jordan asked whether

FORUM

Continued from A1 as one of his forefathers died doing. Republican candidate Debra Moody, who was absent from the Republican debate, received a round of applause from the crowd after questioning the government's fiscal responsibility. "We have to live with a budget, we have to prioritize, and if the money's not there we don't get to spend it," she said. "Don't you think our government should do the same? If we have to follow it, they should." Randy "Mac" McKee (R-Munford), who has served in the Army and National Guard for 29 years, said he's very passionate about Tipton County. "I'm not a Chicken Little kind of person; I know Tipton County's a great place to live, but I also know there's some problems around us that we need to be ready for." Rory Bricco (R-Covington), a local farmer and businessman who is on his third run for the District 81 seat, spoke about freedom. "I tell my people, 'I'm gonna give you as much liberty as you can stand, but remember your liberty is yours to lose depending on how you use it." Though Bricco seemed as if he was going to equate that to his platform and vision, his

we had started a fund for her,� explained Charlene Coburn, manager of Old Town Hall. “We hadn’t yet and she wanted to be the first. It has exploded from there!� Local artists, Ginny Robbins and Patricia Howard, have each donated a painting to the Graves’ cause. During May, Robbins’ acrylic rural nature scene was auctioned off to a lucky winner for a $5 chance. For the month of June, Howard has given a lovely floral painting; the winner’s name will be drawn at the end of June from donations received to the Cindy Graves cancer fund. Other friends contributing items to raise money include local businessman Mike Moore of Buckaroo’s Hatter who has made a special breast cancer pink cowboy hat for Graves. For a donation of $25 or more, donators can sign the hat’s liner and for a donation of less that $25, the hatbox can be signed and Clare allotted two minutes were up. Also appearing at the forum were candidates for property assessor, county commission districts four and five and school board candidates from district five. Property assessor candidates Randy Baskin, Rose Cousar, Greg Stimpson and Scott Taylor were present while Wayne Cole and Rodney Hanks were not. Cousar has served as deputy assessor for 20 years and Stimpson, whose father most recently held the seat, has worked in the assessor's office for more than 19 years. Both have worked with the implementation of current technologies in the office. Stimpson said he's helped map out many of the properties in the county. Baskin, who has been self-employed as a carpenter since 1972, believes he's a great fit for the position because he understands the process and can give fair assessments. Taylor, who says he is the only one certified in the state of Tennessee to appraise real estate, has appraised more than 10,000 pieces of real property. Only two candidates for county commission showed up to introduce themselves. Terri Collins and Tom Emerson Jr., from districts four and five, respectively, both asked

Fountain has designed and donated flower pins to help raise money. “The most remarkable thing is Cindy is not from here but that doesn’t matter,� said Coburn, holding back tears. “The outpouring of concern, the generosity and prayers has been phenomenal.� Graves was able to secure health insurance as a part-time employee of Kroger, which covers some of her medical expenses. In between chemo treatments, she bakes desserts

to sell at Old Town Hall to help with living expenses. She is expected to be on medial absence until the fall. Those wishing to help with her expenses can donate at Old Town Hall “This is what they do here,� said Coburn. “They care. Cindy wants to thank the community for all its phone calls, cards and prayers. She’s had four treatments and the tumor has been reduced 50 percent. After the chemo she has radiation but the prognosis is good.�

for votes from the audience. "We are not running against one another," Collins said, laughing. Collins and Emerson both stepped into their positions after previously-elected commissioners Buddy Bibb and Mark A. Johnson, vacated their positions. Also running in these districts are John W. Delancey and Christopher Joyner. Though three seats on the school board are contested this year, only Susan Griffin and Farrel Vincent, the candidates from district five, appeared at the forum. Griffin, who has been on the board for a number of years, highlighted the accomplishments of the school system, it's teachers and students during her tenure. "My heart's in Munford," she said. "It's been an honor and a privilege to serve as a school board member for 16 years. The progress our school system has made in that time has been incredible. I'm proud of our accomplishments." Running against Griffin, retired teacher and Chief Petty Officer Farrel Vincent stated he was not going to share his background and qualifications, but a story about a student who thanked him for being "so hard on him" in the fourth grade. "This is why I'm in education, to hear students'

feedback about how hard I worked them. He worked hard because I worked hard and I promise, if I'm elected, I'll be the hardest worker at the Tipton County Board of Education." The general election and Republican primary will be held on Aug. 2. Early voting begins July 13. The Leader will publish a Meet the Candidates supplement on Thursday, July 12.

You did have it?

How many times have you just sat and wondered how is it that I’m still in one piece? Did you ever fall out of a hayloft accidentally or maybe you had a little assistance from one of your dear friends? We were so small the ground seemed like it was a million miles away. Maybe we put Sky King to shame flailing through the air. Friends, for you folks that have been under a root cellar all yo’ life at one time there were barns that stored hay, corn that had to be shucked, milking stalls, farrowing pens, barrels of ‘shorts’ (heh, heh let some them Harvard city slickers ‘figger’ that’un out). . Tell that to some of today’s modernization and watch ’em look at you just like you just slapped them in the noggin with bowl of boiled, dehydrated chit’lins. Remember how the landing-pad when diving out of the loft, would be harder than an ex-motherin-law’s heart? Or possibly kind of messy as we say in the South, caused SOUTHERN RAISIN' by the rains mixed in what OTIS G RIFFIN you find in a barnyard. Only my Country brethren can relate. Either way, you done had a Bad Day at Black Rock. I guess it was ‘pert nigh’ a miracle all of us didn’t have more broken bones and skint, split hides than we might admit. But unless you were barely two steps ahead of the grim reaper there was no way anyone would admit being hurt and desiring a trip to the miracle cure Doctor. Better be tough! Not only aches and pains, but communicable diseases spread around the entire universe. Can anyone recall these problems as a youngster? Jack, the illustrious Oracle of Delphi, reminded me of the seven year itch and the preferred treatment many years ago. Sometimes called ‘scabies’ and a few names the preacha’ couldn’t repeat, this itch would make you squall the cows home. This nail breaking itch would cover a victim like a politician covers a vote at an upcoming speaking rally election. Beloved, now that’s all over, far and wide. Daddy said he had seen blood drawn scratching and digging while tears flowed like the Johnstown flood. Neighbor, the mixture of sorghum molasses and sulfur, similar to catheads dipped in red-eye gravy, to be fiercely spread over the red ‘wep’ torso. Another suggestion was to wash the bed sheets, blankets and quilts at least every two weeks, whether needed or not. A hot bath using freshly drawn well water was said to expedite the cure. I’m not sure if this extra dipping included the regular Sat’dy night submerging. Just a thought! One thing about it, the entire school, not just the room class, knew you were not absent with sulfur and molasses emitting an odor from Rosemark University to Beaver Valley. No matter whether it was right or wrong, this was just way of life. Friends can you just imagine what these curtain climbers would do today of they had to indulge in some of our cures we used a hun’ert years ago? Why they would crawl under a gum stump like a mole and hide for sure. But we did survive by the skin of our teeth. Maybe it wasn’t as Bad as We thought at the Time….GLORY!

Mother’s defense is irresponsible Today’s edition brings you news of an indiscretion by a 24-year-old Atoka mother who has admitted to driving a car under the influence of an illegal substance. Not only that, she had her 10-month-old daughter in the car with her. According to police reports, she was not wearing her seatbelt when she arrived at a safety checkpoint at Simmons and Wilkinsville on the night of June 11, so deputies began to further investigate. OFF THE RECORD ECHO DAY That’s when they discovered the smell of burning marijuana and a mother who admitted to being under the influence while driving her infant daughter around. As we know from the story (see page A1), Stacy Garlock was arrested and charged with drug possession and felony child abuse/neglect. And now she’s mad. Garlock isn’t mad at herself for making a bad decision. She’s not mad that she was arrested.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Civil liberty Good day to my fellow Americans and concerned constitutionalists, According to the Noah Webster 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language, civil liberty is defined as an exemption from the arbitrary will of others, which exemption is secured by the established laws, which restrain every man from injuring or controlling another. We must ask ourselves are we living in true civil liberty and if not, then what changes are we willing to accept in order to obtain it for ourselves and others? The idea and origins of liberty come from God Almighty. The Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Ultimately, Christ is the only one who liberates people from sin and the penalty thereof. As humans we have laws that help keep us physically free. However, there is something gravely wrong in present day America. Some of our leaders ask us to trust what they say and do as the means of protecting our liberties, but what they demand in return is our silent, obedient submission to their ideas that do not necessarily reflect a sincere desire to uphold our constitution. Lies separate people, while the truth, when embraced, brings people together. With this in mind, we need to expect America’s elected leaders to lead truthfully and by example. For nearly 18 years, I have observed a man, Rory Bricco, who has demonstrated true leadership. He has been both a co-worker and my boss, and through the years I have watched him continually lead people by example. He does not ask people to do anything that he, himself, is not willing to do first. He is a man of faith, virtue and possesses a relentless resolve to do what is right and beneficial to all under his leadership. Rory is a natural born leader; in fact, he is the epitome of leadership. He educates those around him and brings them alongside while making forward progress. He has the ability to make difficult decisions while others hesitate. Rory has been and still is a vital leader who makes our global business successful. I have watched him from a distance as well as up close and have seen the positive outcome of his decision-making processes. He is man of encouragement and is more than a faithful friend. Rory stands “at the ready” to battle for the truths and laws that were originally given to make America great. Also, he is ready to refute and expose the lies that are destroying our country like a malignant cancer. We should ponder the freedoms that we enjoy as well as the sacrifices that have been made by so many so that we might remain at liberty; true liberty, not pervert-

ed liberty. We need a strong local leader who is not given to greed, immorality, or the continual lust for power. I believe that Rory Bricco is a man of the people and possesses the necessary knowledge, the strength of character, and the heart of true leadership that Tipton County (District 81) needs in a representative. Words will never lose their power; truthfulness, justice, and liberty are not merely words but they are perspectives. We need leaders with the proper perspectives. Let your voice be heard and vote for Rory Bricco on August 2. Hank St. Clair Brighton Editor’s note: The Leader does not endorse candidates for political office. Letters to the editor bear the opinion of their writers. Agenda 21 Dear editor, Our Republic has contracted cancer – terminal cancer if not treated immediately. This cancer attacks our personal privileges, our liberty, and our rights. The origin of this “constitutional cancer” is traced to the United Nations World Conference on the environment held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. Apparently our representations at that event agreed to consider a U.N. initiative to address world hunger; population control; and to protect our planet’s natural resources. That sounds ok, and even noble. But read between the lines and you learn how invasive to Americans’ rights this concoction known as Agenda 21 really is. Because of the radical, aggressive nature of the plan and the gross forfeiture of rights this cancer has been held in remission by political and judicial defenders of the Constitution. The cancer has resurfaced in a subtler manner. Agenda 21 activists known as I.C.L.E.I (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) are opening headquarters all across the country. They are working through state legislatures promoting the groundwork for communities to accept grants that will bind them to the Agenda 21 movement. Based on our current President’s blatant, provocative disregard for the Constitution, I fear his reelection will foster an escalation of the cancer to a terminal state. Be aware of this cancer. Contact local officials to alert them of the dangerous strings attached to these grants. Our Tennessee legislature has already been visited by these Agenda 21 supporters. Thanks to our local Tea Party’s awareness and actions, a resolution against this disease was approved by our House of Representatives and the Senate. Governor Haslam, however, along with Senator Mark Norris and Representative Jimmy Naifeh seemed unimpressed with

the pending danger and helped prevent any stronger action to completely derail Agenda 21 in Tennessee. But at least for now, in Tennessee, the cancer is again in remission. Please join the growing numbers of informed Americans and learn more about this terrible disease before it is too l ate. Google AGENDA 21 to get started. Because it is especially detrimental to agriculture as we know it, this issue is extremely important to the farming community. For more information please e-mail mar58bil@ yahoo.com. Let us resolve to defeat this cancerous Agenda 21 by fighting the I.C.L.E.I and keep our Republic out of I.C.U. Bill Wallace Covington No endorsements from STEMC Dear editor, Southwest appreciates The Leader publishing the ribbon cutting at the new Burlison substation, however, some people have construed the presence of political candidates as endorsements of those individuals. It is Southwest’s policy not to endorse any of the political candidates. We apologize to those who interpreted the ribbon cutting photograph as an endorsement of a particular official or candidate. Phillip D. Mullins Southwest Tennessee Electric Cooperative Thanks for walk On behalf of First Baptist Church, Covington, I would like to thank the following people and organizations for helping us make our walk from 211 South Main Street to 2105 Highway 59 South. The 2.2-mile walk on June 3 at 9:15 a.m. would not have been possible without them. • Police Chief Tim Glass for the personal escort. He and his officers gave the protection needed. This gave the 200+ walkers the safety and security needed, thus providing an atmosphere of joy and enthusiasm. • The EMT unit that followed. Thankfully no one needed medical care, but knowing they were there took care of the worry of an unexpected emergency. • Wayne and Mary Culver for providing water for the walkers. They are a testimony to the fact that no matter how big the job, there’s a way to get it done! • Mayor Gordon and the city aldermen for granting permission for this special event. • The City of Covington and the close friendships here. Our city is growing not only in revenue, but also in unity and love. God bless all of you and feel free to visit us. Chuck Williams Pastor, First Baptist Church Covington

RECORD

Continued from page A4 Rather, she’s mad that her indiscretion has made the rounds in the media, both its traditional outlets, like this newspaper and broadcast programs, as well as new media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and websites. Garlock is angry, her family embarrassed, because this news has made the rounds. I suppose I can understand that, but her anger is misplaced. Garlock has admitted, and not remorsefully, that she did smoke marijuana prior to her arrest. Many parents would view this as a horrible decision, but Garlock’s defense is that it’s not as bad as it could be. “It’s a lot better than drinking and driving or taking pills and driving,� she said. “No one ever died from smoking weed!� I reported her defense in the story, because I believe in allowing her to defend herself, however

I believe this defense to be another bad decision on her part. (Her lawyer will have his work cut out for him, I’m sure.) And not just bad, I believe it to be irresponsible (at best). We at The Leader do not condone such behavior or such decisions. We don’t think that it’s “not as bad� as other things. Statistics released last

budget can help you avoid dipping into your long-term investments to pay for short-term needs. Update your insurance coverage. Make sure your vehicles, stored possessions and new residence are covered during your move. And if your health insurance is changing, be aware of what’s covered under your new policy. Review your estate plans. If your move coincides with other important life events, such as marriage, divorce or remarriage, you may need to make some moves related to your estate plans, such as ensuring you have the correct beneficiary designations on any life insurance policies and your 401(k), IRA and other investment accounts. Check with your legal advisor to determine which steps make sense for your situation. Moving may require you to adjust many aspects of your life. Reviewing the items on this checklist can help you get your financial house in order when you move into your new home.

Elm Grove Tula Star Hello dear friends, last week we had three wedding anniversaries in our family. Marshall and I have been married 60 years on June 14. Our daughter, Becky Starr Glisson and Gary Glisson have been married 30 years on the l5th, and Heather Glisson Moore and Brandon Moore have been married two years on June 12. We took them all went out to eat to celebrate our anniversaries. Well as usual I had to go to the bathroom before I could finish eating. I dash to the restroom... grab a toilet seat cover for the commode and with all the body movement the automatic toilet flushed ... down goes the seat cover. I thought to myself... don’t have time to get another seat cover, so I just plop down and empty my small bladder. We had a great meal of prime rib and peal and eat shrimp with all the trimmings. Our son -in-law ate so much he was sick the next day and could not go to work. One of my neighbors, Jean Jordan called me the other day and said to me that Shirley Adkison, who subscribes to The Leader and used to live here in our area had lost her recipe for the Chocolate Cobbler, and asked if I would get it printed in The Leader again. She now lives in Florida, and she stills gets The Leader. Ms. Adkison said that it was her son’s favorite dessert. Chocolate Cobbler: Melt two sticks of margarine in a 9 X 13 pan. Mix one box of chocolate cake mix with 1 cup of milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour over melted margarine. Do not stir. Mix together in a separate bowl. 1cup sugar, 5-6 tablespoons of cocoa, sprinkle mixture over top of ingredients in pan. Do not stir. Pour 2 cups of boiling water into pan do not stir. Bake 350 degrees for 35 minutes. We are member of Elm Grove United Methodist Church. This past Sunday was Bro. Jim Appleton’s last day at our church. He is getting two small churches in the Camden area. He has been here four years. We wish you well in your new home and churches. Love & prayers.

UT Extenstion offers canning class

Juicy ripe peaches, snapping fresh green beans, sweet grape jelly, and crunchy dill pickles … nothing tastes better than home-canned foods. For many, preserving these and other foods at home can be an intimidating process. However, this does not have to be the case. In fact, with a little knowledge, the right skills, and practice, anyone will find that it is so easy to preserve fresh fruits and vegetables at home. The University of Tennessee Extension in Tipton County will present a program to help with canning foods safely at home. “Canning Workshop: Preserving Foods Safely” is a program designed to teach, through hands-on demonstrations, the “ins and outs” of home canning. This program will provide an overview of the canning process using the water bath canner and the pressure canner. Whether you are an experienced canner who has preserved food for years or a novice wanting to learn more about home canning, this program is for you. During the first portion of the class, participants will learn basic food preservation and home canning principles and terminology. The second portion of the class will actually be spent in the kitchen canning foods! Participants will have the opportunity to preserve grape jelly and green beans all with assistance. In addition, participants will receive a Canning Booklet with recipes developed by the UT Extension Service and foods canned during the class. “Canning Workshop: Preserving Foods Safely” will be held July 10th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Tipton County Extension office located at 111 West Washington Avenue in Covington. Individuals interested in registering for this program should contact Priscilla Eddins at the Tipton County Extension office at (901)476-0231. (There is a $20 registration fee to cover the costs of supplies and produce for the class.) The deadline to register is July 3, 2012. This program is open to anyone who would like to learn more about food preservation. All programs sponsored by the UT Extension Service are opened to all eligible persons on a non-discriminatory basis.

July 13 - Cookie Swap at 10 a.m. & 2 p.m. Please bring one dozen cookies and one copy of your recipe to share. July 20 - Card games “Casasta” at 1 p.m.

Mt. Carmel Elaine Watkins This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farm Report: We got those last few acres of fertilizer down finally and the buggy is washed and put up. Corn is making big ears and we should see a cotton bloom soon in the county. Wheat beans are coming up and look good. Our Soil Conservation secretary, Bonnie Atkins Holloway, will retire on the 29th after 39 years with the county. Liz, Lyla and I drove down to Millington last Tuesday and ordered her plaque. The girls at FSA are helping me and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re celebrating with her on the 28th. I wish Bonnie many happy years of retirement! Elizabeth and Lyla took James and me to Millington for supper Friday night for Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, since sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be working Sunday. We

had a big time and he got a soft serve ice cream maker! Watch out! Saturday James and I visited with Catherine McCalla, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Queen of Mt. Carmelâ&#x20AC;? in a rehab center in Memphis, just off Walnut Grove. She was in high spirits and her light stroke only affected her balance, so sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking rehab for her walking. We had a good time talking and laughing; it was good for all of us. Hope sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home soon! I took my dad, Kenneth Weir, to see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Men in Black 3â&#x20AC;? Sunday and it was the best one yet! That night, Clint and Courtney, along with her mom, brother and stepdad, Amanda and Alan Cochran and Matthew, along with me and James, ate Mexican food for Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day. Good Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day all around! My sincere sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Randy Hare.

Jamestown DarSay Burton Greetings, It seems as if everytime my phone rings, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad news; either someone loved is in the hospital, home pretty sick or has passed away. Once again, that â&#x20AC;&#x153;old death angelâ&#x20AC;? has struck. Another cousin, William H. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bubbaâ&#x20AC;? Holland, formerly of Jamestown, now the family loves in Covington, passed away on June 9th. Bubba and wife Menola or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knotâ&#x20AC;? as sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known, were such a happy couple, always smiling and always loving their entire family.

Happy Birthday to Dawn Mallard, Krissy Ferrell, Pamala King, Ashley McCraw, Martha Smith, and Jay Jennings. Bless your Mamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart for having summer babies! I had three in July and it was very very HOT! Danielle was born in 1980 and that was the worst in my memory bank. We had continual 100-degree days. So hopefully we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any of those for you who are currently with child! The Harrison Simonton Memorial Fish Fry is coming up this Saturday, June 23.

For so long I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember anything about that week. I actually put a note on my bathroom mirror that stated, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Heavenly Father will help you remember this week, just be patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and another read, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t obsess over Harrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s things, just his memoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

We even have an autographed football from the director of Monday Night Football. My childhood best friend and I got back in contact with each other recently and I knew her husband worked for ESPN, so I called her up and asked what he might be able to come up with. And low and behold, she calls and tells me about this football that is coming in from them. It has about 8 signatures from icons like Steve Young, Mike Ditka, and Teddy Bruschi, Keyshawn Johnson. There are four of them! Thanks to all for all the hard work and the community for their support. Staci has put up a great Facebook page for everyone to check out and WKBL is really supporting us as well. Our HOSA group of kids from Brighton are at Nationals in Orlando.

COMMUNITY SCHOOLING

A look at Tipton Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historical schools

By Sherri Onorati sonorati@covingtonleader.com Although school is out for the summer, join us each week as we take a look at some of Tipton Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former community schools, which, through its students, have made a lasting impact on Tipton County.

Bowden School Not much is known about Bowden Shcool. Teacher pay records show that it was in existence in 1911 but school records at the Tipton County School Board are few and the only teacher record books still available encompasses the years 1922-1926. Bowden was a small community school believed to have been located in the Garland/Burlison area. It serviced children who lived on Covingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural routes one, five and six. Thelma Coker was the teacher for the term July 24, 1922 to April 20, 1923. A veteran teacher of two years, she taught grades first through eighth and earned a salary of $60 a month for her time. Originally from Halls, she stayed in the area during the school year and was charged room and board

in the amount of $15 a month. The books her students used that year included Childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World for reading, Wentworth Smith Primary for Arithmetic, Hunts for spelling, Jeschke for language and Brigham & McFarlane for geography. The 21-year-old taught a class of 52 students ranging

in age from 7 to 16 years. Student family names included Cates, Miller, Bringle, Fortner, Mathers, Bailey, Mashburn, Woods, Willis and Hopkins. During the school term, the students studied in a one-room, 390 square foot frame building, which was situated on an acre and a half. The school had an ordinary stove and one unsanitary toilet. They drank well water from a com-

mon cup and had no play ground equipment. They sat next to one another on double patent seats. The school term was 145 days and three students ended the year with perfect attendance. Seven year old 1st grader Everett Miller, 11-year-old 3rd grader Athel Bailey and 10-yearold 4th grader Verble Mill-

er. Five students failed that year. During the school term 1925-1926, 18-year-old Ruby Max was the teacher and taught grades 1st â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7th. The novice teacher received her teaching certificate was issued for the 1925/1926 school year. Her students included a total of 66 students ranging in age from 5 to 16 years of age. The youngest student was 5-year-old 1st grader

Margaret Davis, daughter of farmer J.P. Davis, and the oldest student was 16-year-old 7th grader Joseph Overton, son of farmer C.W. Overton.

Located in a historic finance book were the names of previous teachers dating from 1911 and included: 1911 Eultha Huffman 1912 LaVerne Clements, J. Farrar, L.R. Cothran 1913 J. Farrar, E. Bringle, Maude Terry 1914 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; E. Bringle, Sadie McCullough, Lizzie Bringle 1915/1916 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lottie R. Cothran 1917 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mary L. McQuiston, Ella B.

Tipton County and the Civil War: May 1862 Compiled by RUSSELL B. BAILEY, Tipton County Historian Portersville In a letter to her husband, Mattie Lynn wrote of the naval battle at For Pillow May 10, 1862: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old Jeff Thompson with our great gun boats took a short pull with the Yankee gun boats yesterday morning, so we hear today he crippled and sunk one, we did not learn our loss. We heard the report of the guns and knew it was an engagement by there being such a continual firing. It made one feel so bad to hear what little I did hear.â&#x20AC;?

in a church at Shelby Depot, died and were buried in the church cemetery. Mattie Lynn of Portersville wrote on May 11: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearts are touched by their (soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) sufferings â&#x20AC;Ś the majority of the sick were young boys. There have been quite a number of sick soldiers sent out in the country near the railroad. Ebenezer church over Beaver Creek has been turned into a hospital. Country people, I believe will attend to them better than city folksâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? The soldiers sent to Covington and vicinity were from Fort Pillow and Camp Green on the Big Hatchie. The citizens of Covington sent word to the officers of the 12th Louisiana Infantry at Camp Green that they would nurse and care for any of their sick or wounded at no cost. Nearly 100 soldiers of the 12th Louisiana were sent to Covington homes and public buildings for medical treatment, three of whom died here. Soldiers from other commands were treated. Former State Representative Holmes Cummins spoke in 1875

at Confederate Memorial service at Munford Cemetery, Covington: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have with us in our beautiful cemetery some few of the sons of our sister state the Palmetto (Pelican) State, who, wan and worn with disease, were left in your gentle hands, my ladies, to watch over and minister to, as in a strange land, and amid strange faces, they lay down to die. Let us remember today their little hillocks, too, and as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;By foreign hands their dying eyes closed By foreign hands their decent limbs composed,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So let it be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;By foreign hands their humble graves adorned; By strangers honored and by strangers mourned.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Miss Ella Cummins (1848-1933), was a member of the Baker Lemmon Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy (U.D.C) of Covington. On April 1, 1926, The Covington Leader reported that Miss Cummins spoke at the March meeting of the U.D.C. and â&#x20AC;&#x153;related some interesting facts told her by her mother of some of the wounded soldiers from Ft. Pillow being cared for in

Dunlap Retirement Center

in trouble for saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;the ladies of Macedoniaâ&#x20AC;? so this year Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m giving credit where credit is due, it is a church wide event! Even the youth help and some of the men COOK! Thank you Macedonia, in advance. Also, if you have any items you would like to donate to Dunlap for our Labor Day yard sale, please give me a call. Our annual yard sale is a fundraiser that helps with the rising cost of, well, just plain old living! So mark your calendar for that weekend and stop by and shop till â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ya drop! Just in case anyone out there needs a decent place to live, we have two apartments available that are 55 and over. They are independent living apartments. We also have one room in the retirement buildings available as well. Please call if you know of anyone that would be in need of our facility. Until next week, have a blessed one!

Hospitals in Tipton County By May 1862, the hospitals in Memphis could not accommodate all of the sick soldiers. Confederate hospitals were established at Shelby Depot (Brunswick) 19 miles from Memphis, Ebenezer Church near Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Depot, Covington and probably Mt. Carmel. Soldiers â&#x20AC;&#x153;sick from different diseasesâ&#x20AC;? from General Sterling Priceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s command were sent to Shelby Depot (on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad) and probably Mason. Seventeen of the Confederate soldiers cared for

Hello everybody, sure hope all is well with everyone this week. We are all doing pretty good out here at Dunlap. The weather has been so very nice to get outside and most of the residents are taking advantage of that, walking and sitting out under the big trees and just enjoying the breeze. We are so very happy to hear that Mr. Freddie Huggins is coming home tomorrow! Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been gone since Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day and we have missed him terribly. We only have one birthday to celebrate this month and that would be one of our staff, Tina Solley on Monday the 25th. Happy birthday Tina, hope its gona be a great one! We had fun this past Saturday watching the Girl Scouts play on the Kids Bounce and the waterslide in between Hethcox and McCalla, down in the valley in between the two hills. They

seemed to have a ball! The Girl Scouts do some fantastic community service projects here at Dunlap so this is our way giving back to them. I would like to throw something out to our readers; we have a need for a window unit (A/C) to go in our pantry where we keep some of our canned foods. The old one has bit the dust! The food that we have in there is fine now, but as it gets hotter, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to need one. If you have one (does not have to be a new one) that is in good running condition, please give me a call at 476-7014. Our next big event that is â&#x20AC;&#x153;being planned for usâ&#x20AC;? by the wonderful people at Macedonia UMC, is our annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas in Julyâ&#x20AC;?. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planned for Sunday, July 22 and we are so excited! These folks enjoy Christmas in July, I think more than regular Christmas! Last year, I got

COMMENTARY

Questions propel our faith journey By THE REV. MACHRINA L. BLASDELL

Patrick Overton reflects in his poem “Faith”: “When you come to the edge of all the light you have And take the first step into the darkness of the unknown, You must believe one of two things will happen: There will be something solid for you to stand upon, or you will be taught how to fly.” Many times in our lives we face the unknown, the uncertainty of a future, an outcome, we cannot see. And what we have to hold onto in those moments is our faith that God is with us: that God will be our solid rock to stand on, or that we will be taught to fly. Today’s Old Testament lesson shows us what this looks like, with the steadfast faithfulness and absolute conviction of Job in the face of excruciating darkness. We see this, too, in the gospel lesson, with the new understanding of the disciples as Jesus calms the wind and sea. Both stories illustrate faith. Neither story is that simple. Each story incudes a crucial question. “Who do you think you are?” God asks Job. “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me! Who determined its measurements? Surely you know!” God demands of Job: “Who do you think you are?!” “Who is this?” the disciples ask each other as the waves roll, the winds roar, and their boat pitches in the sea. “Who is this,” they ask about Jesus when he calms the storm, “that even the wind and the sea obey him?” We have two stories of faith, two questions. God asks Job: Who are you? The disciples ask of Jesus: Who is he? If we can answer these two questions, we can describe our faith and equip ourselves for those times that will come: when we will be required to step off into the darkness of the unknown. Who are you? Who is God for you? Lots of people would be happy to answer your questions for you, but what they will give you are their answers. As much as we might not like others telling us what we must believe and who we are as Christians, it is the churches that are doing this that are experiencing booming success. The mega-churches, which are thriving, offer answers as bait. “We will tell you what to believe, how to live. There is no need to bother with seeking and searching, with the messiness of doubt. We have the truth and we will give it to you.” Does this sound familiar? In an ever-changing world fraught with uncertainty and stress, this can be very seductive. It’s a rare security, a comforting assurance. Tidy. But is it faith? Can answers given to you by someone else stand on that brink of darkness, looking into

Church Bulletins June 24 Fredonia Baptist Church in Stanton will present the inspiration play, “He Will Steal Your Life,” written and directed by Mt. Sinai Baptist Church drama director, Gloria Thompson Adams, on Sunday, June 24 at 2:30 p.m. Come and

the unknown? The author Frederick Beuchner once observed that doubt is – and perhaps it is also fair to say questions are – “the ants in the pants of faith.” Get a visual on that: ants in the pants. There is no way you can sit still, relax, remain calm. The adventure of faith requires energy and courage. It requires movement. If you have all the answers, you may as well go to sleep, because your work is done. But if you have questions – “ants in your pants” – then the journey continues. You must seek, you must search, you must move. People often look to the Bible for answers, and many claim to find them there. “The Bible says it, I believe it, that settles it.” Have you seen that bumper sticker? But the Bible is not a proof-text document, a finished, static idea. God is not dead, or asleep. We can look to the Bible, instead, for questions. God asks, in the Garden of Eden: Adam, Eve, where are you? Cain asks: What? Am I my brother’s keeper? The psalms lament: How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land? John the Baptist asks: Are you the one who is to come? Jesus asks Peter: Who do you say I am? Pilate asks Jesus: What is truth? The apostle Paul asks: What can separate us from the love of God? It is the questions that are alive, the questions that describe what we believe, the questions that continue the conversation with God. Consider one of our more popular television game shows, “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” It is the answers that win the prize. The right answer, chosen from four possibilities. You can even get help in narrowing it down to two possible answers, or involving a friend, to get just the right one. There is something in us that likes the adventure of questions, yet clings to the security of answers when we are facing a frightening unknown. But we are often faced with questions that demand our response without really having clear answers. Medical technology, for example, forces us into questions no one should have to address. And while we’re grateful for the advances in healthcare, it’s tough being caught in the dilemma of a difficult decision with little guidance but our faith in God. Do you have the treatment in a limited hope of prolonging life? Or do you live the life you’re given, let nature take its course? When do you pull the plug on someone? What about organ donation? Questions like these are now commonplace, as so many of us have learned. Such questions challenge us to think big, to think beyond, to examine our innermost selves, to in-

volve God. Such questions require us to ask, “Who am I?” and “Who is God?” Such questions are life- and faithchanging. Look at Job. Look at the disciples. They were each and all forever changed, forever clarified, by the questions. Think of a time in your life when you faced a question, the answer to which changed the direction of your life forever. “Will you marry me?” “What shall we tell her?” “How shall we break the news?” “Do we continue treatment?” “Where do you want to live?” “What do you want to study?” The way we answer these questions forever influences our knowledge of ourselves and our understanding of God. We are not a particularly noble people. Our faith is no more spectacular than anyone else’s. But in an instance of grappling with an unanswerable question in an imperfect world, perhaps some of us might choose a continuing question over a definitive answer – to live in the unknown, trusting God, instead of settling the issue then and there. Living with the questions is often difficult. There can be much ambiguity, lots of loose ends. But as difficult as it can be to live in the ambiguity of questions, trusting that God will be with us at that edge between light and darkness, we may find that standing in the unknown with God brings more blessing than the imagination can dream of. The apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthian church that, in Jesus, every one of God’s promises is a yes. Gospel musicians, taking inspiration from this scripture passage, sing: “Find your YES in him.” Whatever questions confront us, may we trust God to be our answer. Remember Overton’s poem: “When you come to the edge of all the light you have And take the first step into the darkness of the unknown, You must believe one of two things will happen: There will be something solid for you to stand upon, or you will be taught how to fly.” Every journey brings blessings. Journeys don’t begin with answers, only with questions, whether it’s a journey to the next state or a journey of faith. Who do you think you are? Who is this who calms the wind and sea? Blessings to you on your journey. The Rev. Machrina Blasdell currently teaches religious studies for Park University, Parkville, Mo., following 12 years as executive director of an interfaith council in the San Francisco area. She enjoys her family life, growing roses, and making anything chocolate.

Munford FFAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Camp Kid By MCKENZIE MANNING Throughout the summer many parents look for a constructive outlet for their children. Camp Kid is a wonderful opportunity to introduce children to hands on animal husbandry. Each morning at camp, everyone teams up to feed and water the goats before going to breakfast. Between breakfast and lunch, campers are educated on how to care for their baby goat, or kid, properly by learning to halter, brush, wash, walk, show, clip, and trim the hooves of each goat. Teamwork is a strong component of

Camp Kid as each camper has a partner that they spend the week getting to know and working in order to accomplish their goal of having a show worthy animal. The week is filled with fun activities like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spa Dayâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dairy Dayâ&#x20AC;? as well as arts and crafts, t-shirts, and pictures. Dairy Day introduces children to goatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milk, goat cheese, and many products made from goatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milk. The last day of camp a show is held so that family members can watch their little camper show off what they learned during the week. The Munford FFA

Chapter will be offering another week of Camp Kid June 18-21. The counselors are looking forward to another fantastic week to spend with campers teaching them about the value of compassion for animals and the skills to care for them. Camp Kid is open to all K-4th grade children and the cost is $75. If interested, contact Ms. LeAnne McRae at her e-mail, boermoma@ yahoo.com, (901) 7344865, or the Munford High School Agricultural Department (901) 8375720.

2012 JA scholarship winners Mrs. Sara shows off the portrait Art Teacher Brandy Akins drew of her to raise support for a school fundraiser this year. Courtesy photo.

We would like to start off this week by congratulating all of the directors, cast, crew, and volunteers on two very successful productions of Aladdin last Friday. Everyone did an amazing job and we are all so proud of you! This week we would like to shift the spotlight onto a very big change at our school this past year; Mrs. Sara Gangaware joined our wonderful team at CIAA as our principal. We would like to introduce her to those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting her yet, for she has already started the path of an amazing legacy at our school. Mrs. Sara was raised right here in Covington and enjoyed her time as a majorette with the band before she graduated from Covington High School. She went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in education from UT Martin, a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction plus 45 above in Educational Leadership from University of Memphis. Over the 30 years she has been in education, she has taught at Brighton Elementary, Munford Elementary, Crestview Elementary, and Crestview Middle School. She moved into administration becoming the Assistant Principal at Crestview Middle School and then made her recent move to the position of CIAA Principal for the 2011-2012 school year. During her years of teaching she also spent time as sponsor of Science Club, Grade Chairperson, Lead Teacher, Technology Coach and mentor, and consulting teacher. Mrs. Sara states out of all the things she has done, she is most proud of her work with the children and feels it is such a blessing to be able to see them grow into productive and successful adults. Mrs. Sara says “Public education has been my life’s work and is something I feel very strongly about.” This is well proven by Mrs. Sara even at a personal level. She has been married for 32 years and is the mother of three wonderful children, all of whom were educated in Tipton County schools and now college graduates. Mrs. Sara states, “Tipton County Schools have served us well!” This year CIAA has seen Mrs. Sara everywhere. She comes to every event she can, she stops to welcome everyone, and she will dress up as almost anything to show her school spirit! “My goals are to make a real and positive difference in the lives of children and the families that we serve. I want the children’s best interests to drive my every thought and decision process,” states Mrs. Sara. It is obvious just to talk with her that she is honestly invested and passionate about our school and our students. She goes out of her way every moment to make each person she encounters know how important they are to CIAA. Mrs. Sara says, “I am proud to be part of the Tipton County Schools and especially to be a part of the faculty and staff at Covington Integrated Arts Academy.” Thank you for all you do Mrs. Sara!

DSCC EHR program extended; students have until Sept. 30 to start Steve Robey, Program Director of Dyersburg State Community College Electronic Health Records (EHR) training program learned that funding for the online program offered through the college since 2010, has been extended. The program, offered online as a distance learning program, is made possible through a HI-TECH Workforce Development program funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Because of this funding, the college is able to offer the program free of charge. The six-month non-degree training opportunity is designed to train a pool of qualified workers with both a medical and an information technology body of knowledge. This will ensure that those working with an electron-

ic health record will have the skills needed and understand privacy and security requirements of medical information. “This is a perfect opportunity to gain training in a convenient, cost-effective way for a first or a second career. I personally have found working in HIT to be a great second career,” said Robey. As one of DSCC’s non-traditional students, Robey studied HIT and graduated from the college in May 2005. Those who complete the program are eligible to take one of six Health Information Technology (HIT) certification exams at no cost. Those who pass the exam now receive one of six credentials: HIT Professional Practitioner Consultant Role (HIT Pro – CP), HIT Professional Practice Workflow and Information Manage-

ment Redesign Specialist Role (HIT Pro – PW), or HIT Professional Trainer Role (HIT Pro – TR). To date, 110 students have completed the program through DSCC. Students must meet pre-assessment criteria before entering this program. They will need to have either background knowledge in information technology and need medical education, or they will have medical knowledge and need information technology education. Individuals interested in this training will need to begin training prior to September 30, 2012 in order to complete the training during the allotted time period. For more information about the EHR program, please contact Robey at 731/286-3213 or srobey@dscc.edu.

Dyersburg State Community College Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice Michael Brooks of Atoka visits with a fellow law enforcement official during his visit to London, England.

There are 27 students from across Tennessee enrolled in the course. Brooks is among the 14 DSCC students and faculty members from taking part in international study programs during May and June. TnCIS represents a group of colleges and universities devoted to making international education and cultural understanding a central goal of higher education throughout the state of Tennessee. TnCIS was founded in 2006 to provide greater focus on the international needs of the state and to develop, support, and promote international exchanges of all types. For more information about Dyersburg State’s TnCIS involvement and travel abroad opportunities for students, please contact Dr. Mary Ann Sellars at 731/286-3322 or sellars@dscc.edu.
