Celebrating the 4th

By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com A two-vehicle, alcohol-related crash Saturday morning on Highway 51 in Covington claimed the life of a Ripley man. At approximately 12:40 a.m., a 2001 Chevrolet Impala driven by James T. Hoover, 49, of Covington was northbound on Highway 51 South when it collided head on with a southbound 2012 Nissan ATS driven by Ray Allen, 34, of Ripley. Hoover was traveling the wrong direction. Antonio D. Norfolk, 30, Allen's passenger, died. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, all three men had been drinking. The accident occurred north of Rialto Road, near the Tipton-Lauderdale county line. It's unknown if Hoover was wearing a seatbelt. The other two men, according to the THP, were not and speed was a factor in the accident. Hoover and Allen were both injured. Citations and/or criminal charges are pending.

Brighton boy dies By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com A Brighton three-year-old boy who fell in the family pool last week has died Police chief Mike Durham said the child was in the care of two teenagers when he went outside and walked into the above ground pool. The Hospital Wing flew to the Hill Street home, transported the child to Baptist Memorial HospitalTipton, then down to LeBonheur Hospital in Memphis. Chief Mike Durham said the child's parents left a 14-year-old and another teenager in charge. Durham said the 3-year-old boy walked outside and into the aboveground pool.

Correction In an article last week, we reported that Varissa Richardson was the first African-American principal at Munford Elementary School. That was incorrect. Isaiah Davidson and Melvin Smith, both African Americans, have also served as principals at MES. We regret the error.

Alexander, Corker announce bill addressing Medicare U.S. Senators Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) announced last week they have introduced legislation to ensure Medicare beneficiaries in Tennessee continue to have access to medical equipment. The bill would require the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to conduct a rebid for contracts to supply medical equipment to Tennessee’s Medicare beneficiaries through a new competitive bidding system that launched July 1. The senators have called for CMS to fix and restart the competitive bidding program in the state after they found last month that 30 of 98 contracts were awarded to companies not licensed in Tennessee and would have to be voided, just two weeks before the program began. Alexander said: “We cannot afford to risk the health of Medicare recipients in Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga who depend on necessary medical supplies by launching a troubled program that may not be able to meet their needs. The administration needs to rebid the contracts to businesses that are licensed in Tennessee and assure beneficiaries that they won’t be

left high and dry.” Corker said: "It is important for those who rely on Medicare to know that it is working fairly and efficiently. After CMS admitted their mistake, the only way to ensure this program operates equitably in Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga is to require CMS to rebid the contracts.” On May 21, Senators Alexander and Corker, along with Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-Brentwood), Phil Roe (R-Johnson City), John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Knoxville), Chuck Fleischmann (ROoltewah), Scott DesJarlais, (R-Jasper), Jim Cooper (D-Nashville), Diane Black (R-Gallatin), and Steve Cohen (D-Memphis) sent a letter to CMS requesting details on its policy of awarding Medicare contracts for durable medical equipment to businesses not licensed in Tennessee, a violation of the administration’s bid policy and a violation of Tennessee state law. Durable medical equipment

includes products that are intended for at-home care of sick or injured individuals. The category includes wheelchairs, crutches, blood pressure monitors, and hospital beds. As a result of their inquiry, CMS found that 30 of 98 contracts had been awarded to businesses not licensed in Tennessee and would be voided— just two weeks before the program was slated to begin. In a June 14 letter responding to the inquiry from the members, CMS administrator Marilyn Tavenner, said: “We have determined that certain out-of-state suppliers that were licensed in their home state, but that did not meet aspects of existing Tennessee licensing requirements at the time of bid submission, were awarded contracts. As a result, CMS will take steps to void contracts for these suppliers in the Tennessee competitive bidding areas, consistent with the policies and guidelines established

for the competitive bidding program. This applies to approximately 30 out of the 98 contract suppliers in the Tennessee Competitive Bidding Areas.” The Medicare Durable Medical Equipment Competitive Bidding program requires home medical equipment sup-

pliers to bid for contracts to serve Medicare beneficiaries in select metropolitan statistical areas across the country. Winners are chosen on best price to the government, capacity, quality service, and the financial requirements including holding a license from the state.

Medicare beneficiaries will then only be allowed to purchase home medical equipment from the winners for their metropolitan statistical area. Tennessee has four areas in the program: Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga.

Governor launches campaign aimed at education Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam on Tuesday launched WGU Tennessee, an online, competency-based university aimed at expanding access to higher education for Tennesseans. He was joined by Western Governors University President Robert W. Mendenhall to sign the memorandum of understanding that officially establishes the university in Tennessee. “WGU Tennessee will give adult students with some college credits the opportunity to earn a degree,” Haslam said. “Today in Tennessee, only 32 percent of our citizens have a two-year degree

or higher, and our goal is to raise that number to 55 percent by 2025. We're calling it the 'Drive to 55,' and WGU Tennessee will play an important role in our success.” The event was held at HealthStream, a leading provider of workforce development and education solutions for the healthcare industry based in Nashville. The governor and Mendenhall were joined by the Gates Foundation's Director of Postsecondary Success Dan Greenstein and HealthStream CEO Robert A. Frist, Jr. WGU Tennessee was established to meet the needs of working adults

who are looking to complete a bachelor’s or master’s degree to advance their careers. WGU Tennessee offers accredited bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in business, K-12 teacher education, information technology, and health professions, including nursing. WGU Tennessee was created through a partnership between the state of Tennessee and nationally recognized Western Governors University. Dr. Kimberly Estep will serve as WGU Tennessee’s first chancellor. Dr. Estep joins the university after serving as vice president for academic affairs

and student services at Nashville State Community College. A graduate of Auburn University, Dr. Estep has more than 25 years' experience in higher education as both a professor and an administrator. She will be based in WGU Tennessee’s main office in Nashville but will work with higher education, community, and business leaders throughout the state to increase awareness and establish partnerships. In addition, the governor is in the process of appointing senior business, community, and higher education leaders from across the state to

Guest opinion

The means to help producers

By TOM VILSACK USDA Secretary This week, we continued to see historic levels of drought grip much of our nation, impacting thousands of farm families. Although the hard work and innovation of our producers has fueled a strong farm economy in recent years, President Obama and I understand the major challenges this drought poses for American agriculture. As of July 20, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has designated 1,055 counties across the country as disaster areas due to drought. Significant portions of many crops are impacted – for example, according to the most recent U.S. Drought Monitor report, 88 percent of our nation’s corn and 87 percent of our soybeans are in drought-stricken areas. Rising grain prices are threatening livestock and dairy operators with high input costs. Our farmers and ranchers are no strangers to uncertainty – but it’s even harder to plan for the future when we don’t know how much more severe the drought will be. Over the years, American producers have constantly innovated to meet new demands and adapt to new conditions, embracing new methods and utilizing new technology. The same innovative spirit that has positioned American agriculture as a global leader has helped to reduce the impact of the drought. Nevertheless, the uncertainty of drought means this is a very difficult time for many. At President Obama’s direction, USDA is doing all it can within the Department’s existing authority to help. Last week, I announced a final rule to simplify the process for Secretarial disaster designations – both to speed the process for producers and to reduce the burden on State government officials, who are also hard at work to help producers around the country cope with this disaster. I reduced the interest rate for Farm Service Agency Emergency Loans, effectively lowering the current rate from 3.75 percent to 2.25 percent to help ensure that credit is available for farm families who are hit by drought. And finally, I announced that USDA has lowered payment reductions for Conservation Reserve Program lands that qualify for emergency haying and grazing in 2012, from 25 to 10 percent. USDA officials are traveling to states around the country to see firsthand the impact of the drought, and we will continue to look for ways to help. But the fact is USDA’ s legal authority to provide assistance remains limited right now. That’s because the 2008 Farm Bill disaster programs, which were implemented under President Obama, expired last year. Prior to the expiration, these programs helped hundreds of thousands of U.S. producers during disasters. If Congress doesn’t act, USDA will remain limited in our means to help drought-stricken producers. That’s why President Obama and I continue to call on Congress to take steps to ensure that USDA has the tools it needs to help farm families during the drought. Disaster assistance for producers is also one of many reasons why we need swift action by Congress to pass a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill this year. I know that many producers are struggling today with the impact of this historic drought. The President and I are committed to doing all we can to help farmers and ranchers in this difficult time. As all of us across America hope for rainfall, and while USDA does all it can to assist America’s farmers, ranchers and rural communities, I hope that Congress will do all it can to help us get the job done.

Tax cuts, crime fighting kicked in July 1 July 1 marks the beginning of the new 2013-14 fiscal year in Tennessee as the state’s budget passed by the General Assembly in April becomes effective. Many other new laws are also set to become effective as the new month is ushered in, including several significant tax relief measures which accompanied the budget and two new laws that will give prosecutors additional tools to bring violent criminals to justice. The $32.8 billion budget for the 20132014 fiscal year incorporates approximately $43 million in tax cuts for Tennesseans, building on $50 million in tax relief passed by the legislature in the previous year. The tax reduction legislation effective Monday raises the The Leader

potential. On the other hand, when an investment’s price has shot up, these same investors will often keep buying more shares, hoping to reap even bigger gains — even if the investment has now become quite expensive, as measured by the price-to-earnings ratio, and has little upside potential remaining. Instead of emulating other investors, think about your own financial goals and create a viable strategy for achieving them, taking into account your risk tolerance and time horizon. Look for quality investments and hold them for the long term. Don’t be discouraged by the inevitable market downturns, but be ready to adjust your portfolio as needed. Above all else, be patient and disciplined, always keeping your eye on your ultimate objectives. It can feel comfortable when you’re in the midst of a herd — but it can lead you to places where, as an investor, you don’t want to go. Steer clear of the crowds and go your own way. .  This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

So far, Shelby County Government has designated $2 million towards the local contribution. The care home group plans to visit government leaders, charity foundations, businesses, churches and community groups to generate awareness and seek donations. The City of Millington and United Housing, Inc., of Memphis have offered potential land sites for consideration. “We want government leaders in Shelby, Fayette and Tipton Counties to realize the economic benefits of having a care home located in their community. It will generate construction jobs, and once opened, employees and the vendors that supply the home will certainly boost the local economy.

The Tipton County Animal Shelter began its pilot program on Jan. 14. The program’s main objective is to help control the pet population by offering low-cost spay and neuter options for dogs and cats to all Tipton County citizens. The shelter feels that it is the responsibility of pet owners to help keep animals from running at large and carrying unplanned litters. To this end, the program consists of selling spay/ neuter vouchers at a reduced cost to citizens of Tipton County. The charge for the voucher is $25.00 and will fully cover the spay/neuter operation. There will be 300 initial vouchers available and will be sold on a first-come-first-serve basis at the Tipton County Animal Shelter, located at 8621 Hwy 5l in Brighton. It will be the responsibility of the citizen to transport the animal to and from the veterinarian performing the procedure. Please contact the Tipton County Animal Control Department at 837-5919 with any questions or more information. In Honor and Memory of our Beloved Mama

Plans in the works for veterans home A group of concerned citizens, many of whom are veterans or their relatives, are leading an effort to build a Tennessee State Veterans Home in Shelby, Fayette or Tipton County. Before the $60 million dollar 144-bed facility can be built, the group must raise 35% of the cost. “We know this is a real challenge for our group. However, it’s simply the right thing to do for the 70,000 eligible veterans in West Tennessee. Many live in Shelby, Tipton and Fayette County and need a local facility for long-term care and rehabilitation services,” said Holly Swogger, President and Chairperson of West Tennessee Veterans Home, Inc. The nearest Veterans Home to the three-county area is 96 miles away in Humboldt. A total of 15 veterans from Shelby, Tipton and Fayette Counties reside there with 138 local veterans awaiting admission. It will cost $60 million to open the proposed care home. The Federal Government will fund 65% of the money but the nonprofit group has to raise about $23 million on its

"It Sounds Like Thunder" opens this weekend at the Ruffin By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader. com Gloria Thompson Adams has been writing plays for several years and has had them produced all over West Tennessee, including several in Tipton County. This Saturday and Sunday at the Ruffin Theater in Covington Adams' most recent play, “It Sounds Like Thunder,” will hit the stage. Like her other plays, faith is the theme. The lead character is Big Will, a billionaire

with a God complex. He doesn't like the sound of thunder, so he sets out to build a house that will be soundproof from storms. His plan is to build it in three days, outdoing the creation of the Earth, which, according to the Bible, took a week. “He wants to outdo God,” said Adams, a Mason native. “Some people want to control everything. You cannot compete with God … You cannot drown out the word of God.” Despite the serious theme, the play, Adams says, includes some hu-

The 23-person cast includes many Tipton County residents are others from around the area. “I like to have people in the plays from different places,” Adams said. “These plays bring out gifts people didn't know they had.” Saturday's show will be at 7 p.m., followed by an encore performance on Sunday at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $12 at the door and $10 in advance. Children five and under will be admitted free. For advance tickets contact Adams at 8493810, Margaret Turner at 262-3021 or Rev. Barry Gray at 550-4252.

traditions. The event will conclude Sunday morning with a vespers service led by the Rev. Dr. Tom Eden. The organization was founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1985 when a number of state and regional groups, including the West Tennessee Willow Society, joined with some overseas individuals to form the international group. Its purpose was to create a forum to collect and further the interest in the Willow pattern, the most common of which is the Blue Willow. It is a distinctive and elaborate pattern used on china and housewares. The pattern was first designed in England around 1790. With over 400 companies having manufactured china with the willow theme, it has been in continual production for more than 220 years. It remains the single most popular china pattern ever. The background color is always white, while foreground color can be blue, pink, green, brown or black. There is even a multi-colored pattern called “gaudy.” The willow pattern can be spotted often being used in movies and television shows, most recently with the ac-

Carol Cordle of Covington, the group’s current President, will preside over the four day meeting. Attendees from Australia, New Zealand, England and Canada will be joining their American collector friends. The theme for the convention is “Teapots and Trains” giving tribute to the Freed Teapot Museum in Trenton and the Casey Jones Museum in Jackson, both of which the group will be touring. Seminars will be offered in various historical aspects and appraisal techniques of the pattern. There will be an auction on Friday evening, an event that is always spirited as collectors vie for the most coveted pieces. Saturday afternoon, vendors from across the region will be on hand to offer even more highly prized collectables at “The Grand Sale.” The finale is a formal banquet that will feature entertainment of country music and a gospel quartet to acquaint the delegates with more of the area’s

per year.” What's new is that columnists, facing reality, are conceding that premiums will go up for most people in the individual market. Let's review one of the key points in getting this law passed – the coverage of the insurable. People that would otherwise be turned away. In theory, this sounds good. These people deserve credit to offset their drastically high medical costs. Here is the rub: Based on enrollment in Obamacare's highrisk pool program, the number of people in America who are truly uninsurable is closer to 150,000 (.0005%). That's a pretty small number in a nation of 300 million people, but it's likely that for many of these individuals, the principal problem is not that they're denied coverage, but that the premiums are high.

Tipton County and the Civil War-Vicksburg continued By RUSSELL BAILEY County Historian The late Bell Irvin Wiley, a native of Halls, Tennessee wrote monumental books on the common soldiers of the War Between the States, one each on “Johnny Reb,” and “Billy Yank.” Dr. Wiley had family relations in Tipton. In writing “The Life of Johnny Reb,” Dr. Wiley gleaned through 50,000 Confederate letters, memoirs, records, etc. He noted that Confederate soldiers consistently referred to trenches as “ditches.” He wrote of the Vicksburg Campaign in which nearly three dozen Tiptonians took part: “The defenders of Vicksburg were subjected to heavier fire than any other trench fighters in the War. Back of them lay the Mississippi, dotted with gunboats, and before them were the troops of Grant and Sherman well equipped with artillery. The

GreetingsOkay, let’s stop with the fireworks already! We’ve already done all of that on Thursday, July 4! So if you’ve still got an ample supply of them, put them away until next time for you know, like New Year’s Eve! I forgot about Labor Day, use them up then! All in fun, you guys, I used to be young, hundreds of years ago. Sure hope everyone’s 4th was a safe and a happy one.

The Fourth of July weekend was a busy one for the Blyue household. On Thursday, the family enjoyed hamburgers, hot dogs, homemade ice cream, and the company of two babies,

On June 10, staff and service recipients delivered meals to residents, enjoyed a snack at Brighton Park, exercised at the Sportsplex and then enjoyed the scenery at Munford ballpark. Service recipients worked on outcomes, watching movies, playing games on the computer, cleaning the center and practicing reading skills in the front room. They are also watching a DVD in Ms. Moneca’s room next door. On Tuesday, June 11, the staff and service recipients from both centers went to the Ripley country club to put on a puppet show for the public. Also, staff and service recipients went to Dollar Tree, Dollar General and a thrift store to purchase some items and work on money management, played basketball at the Sportsplex, had a snack at the river and watched a DVD. On Friday, June 14, staff and service recipients purchased some items at yard sales, got ice cream cones at the Munford Burger King, watched a DVD, listened to some CD’s, worked on outcomes and made crafts. On Monday, June 17, service recipients delivered meals to residents, ate snacks at Glenn-Springs

besieged were deficient in both guns and ammunition. Hemmed in thus by superior forces and equipment, conscious of their inability to give effective retaliation, living on ever-dwindling rations, suffering from a shortage of drinking water, and cut off largely from their friends, they were subjected day after day and night to a cannonading that was so severe at times as to make heads ache from the concussion (and the intolerable heat of the summer sun).” Colonel Edward Higgins, Commander of the river batteries wrote: “During this long and tedious siege…the officers and men under my command discharged their duty faithfully and with alacrity. Owing to the weakness of our infantry force, they were called upon to perform other duties than those of fighting their guns. They formed a portion of the city guard, discharged the duties of firemen in case of

fire, policed the river, etc. and the reliefs were almost nightly under arms as infantry in the trenches…our loss in killed and wounded…will probably not exceed 30…” (First) Battery C., 1st Tennessee Heavy Artillery was organized at Covington and included several men from Lauderdale. 17 men endured the long siege who were surrendered and paroled by the Federals; 10 men died of sickness; 4 were discharged; 3 men were sick in hospitals at Miss.

As for me, I enjoyed a wonderful 4th in the lovely home of my niece and nephew and their lovely daughters who now live in Millington, Stacy and Marcus Tolbert and daughters DaiSha and Taylor. Also the 5th was Marcus’ birthday, he’s 37, wow! It was a surprise for him as well as a family barbeque.

He and his wife, Rev. Pearl Andrews, and youngest son, Michael, were away on vacation for the 4th holiday. Happy birthday to Mary Burton, July 8, my auntie in Jamestown, and an avid reader. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Antwon Sherfield, awaiting their first child next month, a boy! On Saturday evening at the Baker Community Center, Millington, family and

friends dropped by with gifts and to enjoy loads of fun. It was a co-ed baby shower, and even the men had a ball playing all of the games. One or two of them won a prize. The Sherfields now live in Covington. Special honored guests were their mothers, Julia Sherfield and Annette Lake from Covington, and yours truly, who will be the baby’s oldest auntie. Contact Mary Burton or Jessie Cooke concerning J.C.H.O. Yearly dues of $25, monies are needed for college scholarships, cemetery cleaning and to help in erecting a meeting facility.

Mt.Carmel-Clopton Elaine Watkins I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July! We went to Kentucky to see my 102-year-old grandmother, Evelyn Harrington, as Grand Marshal of the Ameribration Parade in her hometown of Calvert City, Ky. She was decked out with a red, white and blue corsage and rode in a red convertible. The crew from the drive-in was on a float behind her, with "Happy 60th Birthday Calvert DriveIn" on the sign. Elizabeth, Justin, Lyla, Clint, Courtney, James and I all made the trip and had a big time. Liz, Lyla, Justin, James and I stayed overnight. We saw the new Superman movie and had the great hamburgers and popcorn. We didn't stay for the second movie, as we were worn out! We woke up, checked out, ate lunch together and went back to visit

www.covingtonleader.com

with Granny for a while before heading home. It was a great trip! The week I missed the early deadline, we celebrated two birthdays: Cameron's on the 27, with ice cream topped brownies at Brian and Shelley's house; and James' on the 30th- when Clint, Courtney, Liz, Justin, Lyla, James and I drove to Munford for Italian food. We had two fun nights! This week's farm report: we had really high winds on June 28, which woke us up. I was worried about the corn but it withstood, and there was seven tenths of an inch of rain. Since then we've received less than a tenth, on Friday. It rained on Highway 14 today (Monday) but not at Mt. Carmel, so some of our fields received rain! I hope it rains some later this week. The corn is doing fine, but needs rain. Soybeans look good and wheat beans, soybeans planted after wheat is cut, in the stubble, is doing well. I've seen a little cotton around, as it's growing slowly. On our prayer list is: Shirley Cook; Mary

Beasley, who was back at church yesterday following hip replacement surgery; Dale Laxton; Genie Renfroe; John Henderson; Jesse Whaley, Andy and Delores' grandson who had open heart surgery last week; Joshua Evins, who had outpatient surgery today; Loreda Brown; Linda Grant; Sam Stitt, who got good news today; Phil Huffman; and so many others, along with all our servicemen and women. Members of the Covington Church of Christ will have their annual ice cream supper on the 14th after evening services. There will be a whitewater rafting trip on July 2527 and day camp July 29-August 2. An areawide youth devotional will be held at 5:30 p.m. at Drummonds Park on Tate Road on August 10th. Happy birthday for two weeks goes to: Lauren Murray on July 1, Nolan Combs on the 3rd, Elaine Shankle on the 5th, Sara Anderson on the 7th, Charley Morgan Halford on the 8th, Evan Nowak on the 11th, Mike McLean and Eric Keith on the 12th and

Craig Clay on the 13th! Happy anniversary goes to: Billy and Ann Chapman on June 30, Grant and Crystal Edmonds on July 4, Rick and Patsy Moore on the 5th, and J. J. and Brandy Brown on the 13th! Congratulations to: Zach Kidd on receiving the camper of the week award at West Kentucky Youth Camp; and Cameron Dickey for making the dean's list at Harding University! "Thanks for reading" this week goes to: Dot Smith in Pensacola, Fla., Judy Ralph and Dot Peyton! Sa-lute! This week's Farmer's Almanac quote: "a tomato plant at the peak of growth may drink a half-gallon of water on a sunny day." Water those tomatoes! Speaking of tomatoes, we've been enjoying corn, purple hull peas, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, eggplant, and all the good summer foods! I love it! Until next week.

Choosing a college? What every student needs to make a good choice When choosing a college, students often look for the best academic institutions. While it's hard to argue with that approach, high school students facing the decision of where to spend the next four years of their lives should know that the right university is not necessarily the one with the best academic reputation. A host of factors come into play when finding the right match between student and university. Academics should always carry the most weight, but students should consider a host of other factors before ultimately deciding where to continue their academic careers. Cost In a perfect world students would not have to worry about financing their college educations. But that's not a world in which today's students live, so the cost of a college education is something nearly every college-bound student must consider before making his or her decision. According to the College Board, the average overall cost to attend in-state public college for the 2012-13 academic year for students who did not receive financial aid was $22,261, a nearly 4 percent increase from the previous school year. That sticker price includes the cost of living in a dorm, food, books, and the additional expenses college students typically have. And the College Board notes that, despite the cost increase, financial aid budgets stayed the same as the year before, meaning even those students who received financial aid paid more money.

Dr. Andrew Curtis Hanks recently graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in Knoxville. He is a 2005 graduate of Tipton-Rosemark Academy and received his bachelor of science in animal science in 2009 from the University of Tennessee at Martin. Dr. Hanks is the son of Dr. and Mrs. Robert Yarbro Hanks of Munford. He is employed with Munford Animal Hospital, LLC. Courtesy photo.

While cost should not dictate where high school students ultimately go to college, students should know that eventually student loans will have to be repaid with interest, so those who do not want to bury themselves in student loan debt after graduation would be wise to choose a university that's more affordable or one that's offering a more attractive scholarship and grant package. Unlike student loans, scholarships and grants do not have to be repaid. Distance from home While many high school students may think a school far away from their folks is ideal, the reality of being far away from home is a struggle for many college students who attend college outside of their home states. Homesickness is a very real thing

for college students who are away from home and on their own for the first time. In addition to homesickness, college-bound students should consider the cost of travel before enrolling in a college or university that's far from home. Mom and Dad might not be able to afford to fly their college students home several times per year for the holidays and other breaks in the school year, and the burden of financing that travel can fall on students. If you are not planning to work during the school year, then financing trips home may prove very difficult. Environment Both the academic and social environments at a college or university merit consideration when students are deciding where to con-

tinue their educations. Some students thrive in a competitive academic environment, while others tend to fare better in a more casual setting. Students should assess which environment is best for them and choose a university that best suits them as a student. A college or university's social environment is another factor for students to consider. Larger schools tend to rely heavily on Greek life, while smaller schools may be more intimate and less exclusive. Students who hope to join a sorority or fraternity might benefit from a school with a thriving Greek life, while those who want a more intimate social environment might prefer a smaller school where all of the students seem to know one another.

Frazier High School class celebrates 45 years The 1968 class of Frazier high School reunited July 5 – 6 to celebrate 45 years since graduation. In attendance were over 45 of the 91 remaining graduates of that class. Frazier High School was phased out in the late 1960’s and

merged with what is now Covington High School. The night was highlighted by a class history speech, honorary diplomas and tributes to teachers and deceased class members. The night ended with a dance and a

chance for the former students of Frazier High School to reminisce with teachers, classmates and friends about their high school days 45 years ago. The event was held at the Frazier Alumni Center in Covington.

Ministry, Kroger working to feed the area's needy The Bread of Life feeding ministry has been approved as an eligible non-profit organization with the Kroger Corporation and can benefit from their Community Rewards program. Once Kroger shoppers designate the food pantry to receive benefits via the Kroger card, every Kroger purchase with the Kroger card will accumulate community rewards points. Bread of Life will receive a quarterly donation from Kroger based on how many points are designated. A user name and password must be set in order to log into the Kroger account. Once logged in, click on Community Rewards, scroll down and look for "Tennessee" non-profits to find "Bread of Life - First United Methodist Church." To use the Kroger Community Rewards Program, register online at krogercommunityrewards.com. Approximately 364 households were served in June and 746 have been served year-to-date. 1,177 individuals were served in June, and 2, 329 individuals were served year-to-date. More than 175 persons in the community have volunteered at least once this year, and 102,824 pounds, or 51.4 tons of food, have been distributed. In an effort to help to alleviate hunger among needy people in Tipton County, First United Methodist Church became a member agency in the Mid-South Food Bank, a division of a national non-profit food bank network called Feeding America. Pantry distribution days and locations are as fol-

Israel witnessed the zeal of Jesus for the house of His Father, and remember an Old Testament scripture and may have feared that Jesus would have to endure what David had suffered in his day. It was this zeal that Jesus had, that set in action the hostility of the religious rulers in Jerusalem. At the end of His ministry, Jesus reminded the money changes and the sellers of the animals that the house of God had never been intended as their private benefit or personal domain. In Mark 11:17, Jesus said to them, “And he taught, and said unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations? but ye have made it a den of robbers“. As Isaiah 56:7 tells us, “even them will I bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer: their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon Mine altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations”. The strong Messianic claim, by cleansing the temple, was not lost on the priests, for they immediately demanded a sigh that would confirm the claim of Jesus as the Messiah. The cleansing itself was an excellent sign, but that sign they rejected. Their point for requesting a sign was, either He did these things of Himself, by His own authority, and would be considered rash and unjustifiable, or He did it by the authority of others. The religious

rulers knew His deed was not done by their authority or the authority of the Sanhedrin. If He had acted on human authority, and pretended to a divine authority, as they thought He did, then they insisted upon a sign or miracle to be done in their presence, to prove to them that God was His Father. If God was His Father, then Jesus was the owner of the temple and had every right to cleanse it as He had done. But Jesus answered their request by saying, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up”. The Jews, rejecting the sign of the cleansing of the temple, also reject this sign. The Jews probably laughed at Jesus in their response, “It took forty-six years to build this temple, and You will raise it up in three days?”. Of course, we understand that the statement of Jesus was a reference to His death, burial and resurrection. Jesus knew fully well by His actions and His words that the consequences would eventually be His death. And as sure and certain that He knew that, He also knew that He would be raised to life on the third day. Here, and in Matthew 12:38-40, the only sign, whether the sign of Jonah, or the sign of the temple, it was actually the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus on the third day. That was the only sign they would receive. Of course, the Jews interpreted the words of Jesus in the most literal fashion possible, and with such a lack of perception, they naturally considered His

The authority of Jesus

By RALPH A. KELLEY The Church at Shiloh

www.covingtonleader.com

claim ridiculous. When Jesus was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said, “in three days I will raise it up”, and then they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had spoken. While Jesus was still in Jerusalem, a great many signs were produced by Jesus at this first Passover of His ministry. I am convinced that the cleansing of the temple was a sign in itself, a fulfillment of prophecy and a catalyst that would have brought Jesus much popularity, but on the other hand, provoked the religious rulers who believed that He was a challenge to their authority. Even though Jesus received an increase in popularity, He was not deceived, understanding the fickle and unreliable nature of public opinion. I believe that He did not commit the whole of His Gospel to them, He did not make known to them all that was to come. He had informed His twelve, but they too did not understand all that He had said. It is apparent that He did not trust Himself with the common people at this time, because they only believed in Him on the basis of His miracles. Jesus knew the hearts of all men, even as we can today. He knew them as sinners, openly wicked, some blasphemous, those sins done in public and those sins done in the dark. Jesus knew them, and that was why He was here, to bring them into the family of God by His death, burial and resurrection. But the time was not then, to reveal

Himself, so soon, He left Jerusalem and went into other parts of Judea and into Galilee. We remember that Jesus had seen into the hearts and characters of both Peter and Nathanael, and Jesus looked right into the hearts of those people in Jerusalem, who, because of His miracles were ready to allow that He was the Messiah, but did not understand any of the moral or spiritual implications of His message. They probably first thought, ‘let us see if He can throw the Romans out of Israel’. There are many who will say that Jesus was omniscient, all knowing or seeming to know everything, but we have to remember that Jesus was a man, with the Holy Spirit upon Him. Jesus knew then and knows now, all men and what is in their hearts. If we but listen to the Holy Spirit, we too are able to discern man’s heart. Jesus knows their nature, their dispositions, their affections, their designs. He knows His crafty enemies and all of their secrets. He knows His false friends and their true character. He knows who are truly His, knows their righteousness and He knows their weaknesses. If we can but discern man as Jesus does, we would know of dead faith or true profession, we would know the empty, worldly professors are not to be trusted. And however a man can impose himself on others, he cannot impress our God who knows man’s heart.

Shade trees save energy

People take many different steps to stay cool when the temperatures rise. A particularly common method to remaining comfortable is turning up the air conditioning and staying indoors. But what about the people who want to be cool and enjoy fresh air as well? Shade trees could be their best allies against the sweltering temperatures. Most individuals will agree that it feels much cooler under a shade tree than it does when standing in direct sunlight. The nonprofit organization Trees Forever says the difference in temperature readings can be monumental. In 2010, roughly 20 volunteers worked with the organization to compare the actual temperature of shaded and unshaded surfaces around a county fairground in Iowa. The volunteers used laser thermometers and took readings from surfaces such as sidewalks, parking lots and grassy lawn areas. The volunteers found differences in temperature ranging from 14 to 55o F depending on the surface measured. That’s a considerable difference and could help a person remain cool. Trees are a practical way to stay cool and are an energy-saving means to keep temperatures down. Planting trees around a property can reduce reliance on airconditioning systems, saving a person money while reducing dependency on fuel sources. Other live vegetation, including grass and yard plants, can also promote an overall cooling effect, compared to hardscape surfaces that radiate heat. Numerous varieties of trees can serve as shade trees. These are typically deciduous trees that will have leaves during the warm-weather months and then shed them when the cooler seasons arise. However, some evergreens and tropical trees also work well as shade producers in and around a landscape. * American Arborvitae: This slow-growing evergreen is typically used to create tall hedges and privacy screens. It also offers year-round moderate to deep shade when the trees reach maximum height of 25 to 40 feet. * American Beech: This tree offers shade and also edible nuts. It can grow up to 100 feet in fertile, well-draining soils. * Autumn Blaze Maples: These trees are known for their outstanding fall foliage. However, they also are fast-growing shade trees that can cool down any landscape. * Bald Cyprus: The fern-like leaves of this tree provide moderate shade. This cyprus is lowmaintenance and has few problems with insects or disease. * Chinese Elm: This rapid-growing tree is excellent for screening or providing a windbreak. Small, dense foliage will

fill in about five years, when it will be good for shade. * Crepe Myrtle Tree: Myrtles are fast-growing shade trees in southern climates. In northern climates, they may grow more like a perennial shrub. * Little-leaf Linden: This is a fragrant tree that blooms with yellow flowers in early summer. The dense foliage will remain on the tree into late fall. * Moraine Locust: This tree is cold-hardy and can withstand urban conditions. It is fastgrowing and provides light to medium shade. * Silver Maple: This is the most rapid growing of all maples and will be a large spreading tree. * Tulip Trees: These very large trees are coveted for their flowers that resemble the shape of tulips. This tree should be given plenty of space in which to grow. * Virginia Pine: Because its branches aren’t as close to the ground as other pine trees, the Virginia pine can be an effective shade tree. * White Birch: This tree, also known as the European birch, grows 30 to 60 feet tall and has drooping branches. The smaller leaves offer dappled shade. The peeling white bark can stand out in a landscape. * White Oak: Oak trees make excellent shade trees, but the White Oak can grow to 100 feet tall with a spread of 80 feet in its canopy. It has thick horizontal branches that contribute to its shadeproducing benefits. Trees in one’s yard can not only keep temperatures cool, but also provide habitats for birds and small animals and act as a food source for plenty of creatures.

It has been written that Tennessee is the mother of volunteers and the birthplace of soldiers. Nathan Bedford Forrest was a Tennessean who gained world renown as a military genius who rose from private to lieutenant general during the War Between the States. Gov. Bill Haslam has proclaimed the birthday of General Nathan Bedford Forrest, July 13, a “Special Day of Observance” in the Volunteer State and has invited fellow citizens to pay homage with appropriate ceremonies to this outstanding Tennessee military leader. Members of the Simonton

– Wilcox Camp #257, Sons of Confederate Veterans, will sponsor their annual celebration of the birth of General Forrest with two events this week. Members and guests of the camp will have a potluck supper and program July 11 at 6:30 p. m. in the Parish Hall at St. Matthews Church in Covington.  Camp 2d Lt. Commander Darrell Wright will speak on the life of Gen. Forrest. This Saturday morning at 8 a.m., members of the camp will place a memorial wreath at the granite marker commemorating Gen. Forrest’s public address, given to the

Veterans of the 7th Tennessee Cavalry at Covington in 1876, at the Tipton County Museum in Covington.  Forrest (1821-1877) was a native of Tennessee.  He was elected an alderman of Memphis and was a prominent member of the Shelby County Democratic Finance Committee.  During the War Between the States, Forrest trained as a soldier at Randolph in the early days of the War.  Tipton County furnished approximately 1,000 men for Confederate military service during the Civil War and nearly half of these men served under General Forrest during the

conflict. Sir Winston Churchill wrote that General Forrest “possessed military qualities of the highest order.  His remark that the art of war consists of being ‘firstest with mostest’ is classic.” In 1931, the Nashville Banner conducted a poll to determine the 10 greatest Tennesseans.  General Forrest was elected the fourth greatest Tennessean of all time.  The same newspaper conducted the same poll again in 1976 and Forrest was elected the sixth greatest Tennessean in this poll. The state of Tennessee placed

The general and his wife are buried beneath the massive equestrian statue to the general in the former Forrest Park, now Health Science Park, in Memphis.
