Public Works employees indicted Charged with scrap metal theft, sale
By ECHO DAY firstname.lastname@example.org Two Tipton County Public Works employees were indicted last week and charged with stealing scrap metal from the landfill. The charges come just months after an investigation by the Tipton County Sheriff's Office and the district attorney general's office. The county's audit report also mentioned the thefts, with auditor Keith Rice reporting he'd received allegations that
employees were removing scrap metal from the landfill and selling it to a scrap yard. In the audit report, Rice said of the 14 employees interviewed, nine admitted to removing scrap metal from the landfill for personal use and two admitted to selling it. The public works department actually sells scrap metal it receives at the landfill. It is used as revenue for the county and last year brought in $150,000. Tipton County Public Works Director Shannon Reed said Latham and Holland were
each charged with theft under $10,000. The men appeared in court Tuesday. Latham is expected to hire an attorney and return on April 5. Since the thefts were reported, Reed said the department has installed surveillance cameras and more fencing. He said he is "speechless" about the situation. "We're a good department and we try to do the right thing for this county," he said.
James "JL" Latham and William Holland were indicted last week on charges they stole scrap metal from the landfill and sold it for personal gain.
Two men wanted in home invasion By ECHO DAY email@example.com
The Tipton County Sheriff's Office has identified two suspects wanted in a March 11 home invasion. Detectives allege Quintin Johnson and Joshua Elkins, both 22, were armed when they entered a home on Robin Hood Circle and demanded victims Lucus Miracle and Jeremy Wyatt give them money. Johnson and Elkins reportedly held Miracle and Wyatt at gunpoint while the residence was searched, then fled with $611 and a firearm. Johnson, of Portersville Road in Atoka, and Elkins, ELKINS of East Harmony Drive in Mason, were named as suspects during the initial dispatch. The two have not yet been located for questioning and the sheriff's office is asking for the help of the public in apprehend- JOHNSON ing them. The pair has connections in the Bartlett area and, at the time of the robbery, they were driving a gold Chevrolet Impala. The vehicle was reported stolen out of Munford and recovered in Bartlett. Johnson has unrelated active warrants in Tipton County for driving on a suspended drivers license and delivery of marijuana. Persons with information in the case are asked to call the Criminal Investigations Division at 901-475-3300, Central Dispatch at 901-475-4300 after hours, phone-in tips at 901-475-3007 or email tips to sheriff@ tiptonco.com.

biggest influence on you growing up and why? A: Probably Richard Brock, who has my high school baseball coach. He had a no nonsense way about him. This was the way you do things. You do it with all your heart. Whatever you do, you do right. You give 100 percent. He never seemed to take less than 100 percent, whether you were on the field or off. He was probably the first coach who said you represent me and you represent us wherever you go ... Of course my dad would be a huge influence too. Just a great work ethic.
Q&A WITH JEFF PHILLIPS
Editor’s note: This week we are continuing a feature called Q&A. Through this feature we hope to help you get to know your neighbors, government officials and others in the community. Today we are publishing a chat with Jeff Phillips, an associate minister at Covington Church of Christ who is also a dog kennel owner and very involved in the Covington Exchange Club and the Carl Perkins Center. He also uses his dogs for speaking engagements.
Q: When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up and why? A: Two different things.
There's a paper at my mom's. I wrote on there I wanted to be a preacher when I grew up. I found that paper, read it and I changed it to baseball player. I'll never forget, my mom came to me and asked why I changed my mind ... I played some college baseball and I was an electrician for a while. Now I'm back to what I originally said. It seemed like the right thing to do. I think we can all be preachers. Not a lot of money it. Just a lot of hard work. That's a good question. I'm not sure why. Q: What person had the
Q: What do you like to do in your spare time? A: I really enjoy spending it with my wife. We went to St. Louis for our anniversary. We planned it as kind of a scouting trip because when we got there, even though it was just the two of us, we would be doing things and saying, "The boys would like this. Don't you wish the boys were here?" We made plans to go back with them.
very patient with workaholic me. Q: What's the most rewarding thing about being a minister? A: I hope I'm doing what God expects me to do. I'm really not seeking a reward. I think that I am happiest when I'm doing something for somebody else. This provides me that opportunity. My wife will tell me that I'm somebody else too. Sometimes she does that harshly and sometimes she does that in a very loving way. It keeps me remembering what my commitments are.
Q: Tell us about your dog kennel business? A: I train my dogs. We do some puppy socialization. There are people out there who will buy a dog, but they don't really want it in the puppy stage. They want it when its trained. About the worst thing you can do with a dog when you get it at seven weeks is put it in a kennel and see it for five minutes a day. Jennifer and I socialize puppies. When they're done with us, sometimes they're house broken. Any time we can be outside and introduce these puppies to other people and dogs, its great. Number one, it gets the word out if they're for sale. Number two, it teaches them manners ... The purpose is to use the dogs to speak and preach the gospel. Q: How do you find time for work, community projects and family? A: You don't find it. You have to plan for it. That's all there is to it. If was I was looking for time to do something I wouldn't have time to do it. You just kind of do it ... When you have three boys, two of them play soccer for the FCA Knighthawks and one of them is playing Dixie Youth Baseball, and I coach that, it means you miss some things. You do what you can. One of the things about being a minister, technically I'm on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If I want to take a couple hours off during the day to go train, I can make it up. If a call came in and one my kids needed me, and not just one of my three boys, one from my church family, I'm gone. That's just the way it is. I don't know if they expect me to answer, but I expect me to answer. That's part of being a minister. Self is not important. I have a very loving wife who is
Barlow fined by state for not having license By ECHO DAY firstname.lastname@example.org Quincy S. Barlow, operator of Barlow Funeral Home, was recently fined for operating without licenses, the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance reported last week. A disciplinary action report filed by the regulatory board in February states the funeral home was fined a $1,000 civil penalty after an investigation revealed it was operating with an expired license. The license expired on June 30, 2010 and was not renewed until August 30, 2010. The state reports during the lapse in licensure, Barlow conducted funerals for Gertrude

Williams, Elton Parker Jr., Dale Bernard, Gilbert Hill, Sam S.C. Fears and Mattie S. Tyes. Tennessee law states only properly qualified persons shall engage in funeral directing, embalming and operating of a funeral establishment. In November, Barlow
was ordered to pay a $750 fine for a lapsed establishment license as well as two lapsed licenses for directors. A consent order was filed with the state board of funeral directors and embalmers in November 2011, with manager Quincy S. Barlow, a county commissioner
and the chairman of the board’s finance and administration committee, signing it in acknowledgment. Barlow's license is currently valid and expires on June 30, 2014.

Workers’ compensation reform scores legislative victory Bill will create fairness in the system for both employer and employee The Workers’ Compensation Reform Act of 2013, an initiative that is part of Governor Bill Haslam’s legislative agenda for the year, easily passed the House Consumer and Human Resources Committee this week. Workers’ Compensation is an insurance program, adopted in Tennessee in 1919, that compensates employees for injuries they suffer
on the job. Employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover the costs of medical expenses and lost wages of employees when they suffer work-related injuries. As introduced, the Workers’ Compensation Reform Act (House Bill 194) reforms the workers’ compensation system in Tennessee to provide more certainty for businesses while also protecting the interests of employees across the state. If passed by the legislature, HB 194 will reduce the time it takes to receive permanent workers’ compensation benefits and improve injury medical treatment.

Katie Scott will chair the Contest and Credentials Committee; P.O. Box 96, Mason, Tennessee. Website: www.tiptongop.org
In addition, the process for resolving workers’ comp disputes will be streamlined, allowing injured workers to receive compensation and return to work quicker. According to critics, the current workers’ compensation process in Tennessee is unpredictable, cumbersome for determining benefits, and employees are often unable to receive benefits and return to work in a timely manner. Tennessee is one of only two states with a courts-based system. As a result, opponents of the system say, workers’ compensation premium rates for employers in Tennessee are higher than the national average.
Sequestration lowers federal unemployment benefits State benefits are not affected NASHVILLE – The Budget Control Act of 2011, generally known as “sequestration,” requires budget cuts to many federal programs including the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program. All payments of EUC on or after March 31, 2013, will be
reduced by 10.7 percent through September 2013. The weekly benefits of approximately 30,000 Tennessee claimants currently receiving EUC or transitioning into EUC from Tennessee Unemployment Compensation program will be affected. The state’s unemployment compensation system, generally the first 26 weeks (maximum) of
available unemployment benefits, will not be reduced. Claimants will be notified by mail detailing their reduced benefit amount no later than 3-22-13. All affected claimants must continue their regular weekly certification as well as satisfy their weekly work search requirement.

This high level of achievement resulted in them being invited to Tremaine National Finals in Orlando, Fla. this summer. “This is an invitation-only competition and a huge opportunity for our

President has failed to lead country You’ve heard a lot about the automatic spending cuts as a result of the sequester, which was passed as part of the Budget Control Act to reduce federal spending. But as those cuts officially took effect in recent weeks, I’ve been calling for the president and Congress to face our country’s biggest problem: The out-of-control, automatic mandatory spending increases that are driving our fiscal woes in the first place. So far, President Obama has spent his time running around the country blaming others over the past month for the sequester that he proposed, and signed into law, in 2011. This is not the way a president is supposed to act. If the history books were written today, we would remember President Obama for the sequester. D.C. VIEW SEN. LAMAR ALEXANDER This is all made worse by Senate leadership deliberately bringing business to a halt – we have a fiscal crisis, we have not had a budget in four years, the Senate did not even pass any appropriations bills last year, there is little respect for committee work and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has used the gag rule 70 times to cut off amendments from the Republican side of the aisle. Let’s go back to why the president agreed to the sequester. He agreed to it in 2011, after suggesting the process from which it came, in order to get $2.2 trillion in spending reductions so he could get a debt ceiling increase that lasted through the election. And the second reason he did it is because he did not want to tackle out-of-control spending increases driven by entitlements like Medicare and Medicaid. If the president wants to finally deal with spending, striking the “grand bargain” he’s been talking about lately to get our country’s fiscal house in order, he should send Congress a plan. We could consider it and have a result back to him within a couple of weeks. The president could do what Senator Bob Corker, my fellow Tennessee Republican, and I have done. We’ve proposed the Fiscal Sustainability Act, which would reduce automatic spending increases by $1 trillion over the next ten years by reforming entitlements like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. If the president doesn’t have a plan, he’s welcome to borrow from ours. If we don’t fix the debt and reform entitlement spending, we’ll face serious problems. The Medicare Trustees have said that by 2024, the program won’t have enough money to pay all of seniors’ hospital bills. And according to the Simpson-Bowles Fiscal Commission, by SEE ALEXANDER, PAGE A5

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Pogo’s prophecy Dear editor, The prophesy of Pogo from years ago and the comments from Dr. Benjamin Carson at the recent National Prayer Breakfast are parallel in nature. Pogo’s prophesy rings ever more true today: “We have met the enemy, and he is us.” The greatest danger to our democratic republic is not an armed Iran nor a dangerous immature leader of North Korea. It is not our indebtedness to China, nor our downward spiraling economy. It is not man-made global warming. It is not the invasion of our unsecured borders. Though these are all real challenges and should be of great concern they are minuscular compared to the source of our greatest danger. The present danger is our attitude. The source of this dangerous attitude is apathy and indifference. Indifference is the neutral position between two opposites. Festering parasitically from this attitude of indifference and apathy lies the more obvious danger, the activity of indoctrination. Aided by the unconcerned masses, socialist indoctrination has crept into our culture. Our basic val-

ues, family structure, pride, personal responsibility, and integrity are being attacked. These subtle intrusions are so gradual we hardly notice. Except when terms such as: “political correctness”, “redistribution of wealth”, and “social justice” are used this activity is unrecognized. Those responsible for this ultra-liberal movement include the news media, universities, colleges, public schools, and some churches. At the Feb. 7th, prayer breakfast Dr. Carson focused somewhat on this topic. Dr. Benjamin Carson is a well-known pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns-Hopkins University. His diagnosis of our republic’s illness is bible based and his cure was eloquently stated. The prescription, however, requires diligence and a much different approach than what is being practiced by the Obama administration. With the president a couple of seats away, Dr. Carson’s remarks were delivered without hesitation, equivocation, or mental reservation. I especially enjoyed the position he placed the alphabet news-media who were forced to keep the cameras rolling unable to filter his comments. Finally, the president’s protective shield furnished by the me-

dia was penetrated. The biography of this great man begins with a hardworking single mom determined to see her two sons excel. It is the story of a man with a deep faith in God and great respect for his country recognizing the many opportunities available to everyone of us. Dr. Carson’s prescription admonishes us to correct our course with a common sense approach, become involved and encourage young ones to take advantage of the opportunity of education. I would add to Dr. Carson’s prescription the need to reform our election process. Contrary to the intent of the framers of our Constitution which identified voters as “well-informed populace,” our leaders are being chosen by unconcerned masses. We voters need to become aware of the issues facing our nation and who best represents our interests regarding those issues. The healthcare bill is a good example of bad legislation passed by incompetent, corrupt politicians. Unread before voting for it Dems are now becoming alarmed as they discover “what’s in it,” as per Nancy Pelosi’s recommendation. Among those identified as unconcerned masses are Republicans who stubbornly stayed home on Election

Day because their guy didn’t win the nomination. Or maybe it was because the nominee did not share their religious belief. We must be reminded to vote with the heart during the primary and with your head in the general election. Elections at the federal level should be uniform across the nation. Voter registration activities must be monitored and positive voter identification required. Voter fraud is real. Pogo prophesied the danger and Dr. Carson discussed the cure for the republic’s illness. His prescription of common sense, diligence and a return to personal responsibility is not that difficult. It simply requires a change of attitude – from that of indifference to an attitude of awareness. For more information about Dr. Carson, type in your search engine “Dr. Benjamin Carson.” For in depth information about his positive influence on public education type in “Carsons Scholars.” There is also a list of books written by Dr. Carson and a DVD of his life story.

2025, all the revenue the federal government collects will go toward paying for mandatory spending like entitlements and interest on the debt. Robert Merry, a biographer of President James K. Polk, told me recently that every great crisis in our country has been solved by presidential leadership or not at all. Yet President Obama seems determined not to exercise that sort of leadership. It’s time for the president to show the kind of presidential leadership that President Johnson did on civil rights, that President Nixon did on China and that President Reagan did on fixing Social Security. If he did, we could not only fix the sequester. We could address the automatic spending increases created by mandatory entitlement spending – which are the true driver of our nation’s fiscal problems. As Australian foreign minister Bob Carr, a friend of the U.S., said, we are one budget agreement away from reasserting our global preeminence – and, I’d add to that, one budget agreement away from getting the economy moving again. The president has profited politically for blaming other people for problems he has caused – but I predict that won’t last forever.

The Civil War and Tipton County Compiled by Russell B. Bailey Tipton County Historian
March 1863 “Brave Dickie Dyson” Before the Federal Cavalry left Covington on March 10, 1863, a battalion paid a visit to the plantation of Robert C. Dyson. Robert Clark Dyson was born in York District, South Carolina, December 20, 1812. He was a son of Aquilla and Malinda Harris Dyson. In 1839, Aquilla Dyson conveyed a deed of gift of 640 acres to his son Robert, the land lying south of the Big Hatchie River in Tipton County, Tennessee, bounded by the southern boundary line of the Hatchie Connection at the northeast corner of the Oliver B. Hays 1,000 acre tract it being part of the State of Tennessee Grant to John C. McLemore March 12, 1824. Census data for 1860 reports Robert C. Dyson owning two plantations, one near Covington, and his original home tract near Charleston. His estates included 2,855 acres of land and 52 slaves valued at
$113,198.00. Farm productions for the two plantations included 4,200 bushels of corn and 62 bales of cotton. Firth Charlesworth, a native of England, enlisted in the 6th Illinois Cavalry Regiment, Co. L, in August 1861. By November 1862, Charlesworth was promoted to the rank of Captain serving under Colonel Benjamin H. Grierson in West Tennessee and North Mississippi. In his own words, Capt. Charlesworth stated that he “had a novel encounter with a prosperous batchelor and eccentric Yankee-hating planter of Tipton County by the name of Dickie Dyson.” During the Spanish-Americn War in 1898, Captain Charlesworth told of the skirmish with Dyson: “As our battalion approached Dyson’s house… the… owner came out and “hailed them, asking if they were Yankees.” An affirmative reply was given and the man disappeared within the doors. The next they saw of him was when Dyson appeared around the house and opened fire upon the
battalion. Then began perhaps one of the most notable incidents of the war; a single man engaging a battalion. The engagement was desperate. Several of the Federals were wounded… Finally, the desperate, eccentric man fell wounded… but he did not stop shooting. Clinging to his gun, he loaded with difficulty and with pain kept up the fire. At length…he was shot and completely disabled.” Thirty-five years after the skirmish, Charlesworth was serving as an officer in a Kansas regiment in the Spanish-American War. While passing through the encampment of a Tennessee regiment, he inquired if any of the soldiers were from Tipton County. Charlesworth was directed to the tent of Major Mark Anthony Walker of Covington. Charlesworth revealed to Major Walker that he had served in the Civil War in West Tennessee and told of the skirmish with Dyson. Major Walker’s mother, Ellen Anthony, was a niece of Mr. Dyson. Major Walker was the father of the

Carmel, Catherine McCalla, on March 22nd! This week's Cat Report: Just watched a show on cats Friday night, about a family that had to clear out space on the closet floor for the cat. It was the only place she
wanted to go to be alone. Well, I opened our closet door this morning and Minnie came out. She's accidentally gotten shut up in there all night long, but we didn't know it till she started meowing this morning! Guess she was pretty comfy!

late Judge Mark A. Walker of Covington. Major Walker later served as Mayor of Covington. Charlesworth learned more about Dyson from Major Walker: “Dyson died of his wounds two years after the war. He used to tell about how he ‘threw out his lines when he engaged a ‘regiment.’ He early looked upon the Yankees as robbers, who proposed to deprive him of his ‘Negroes and land,’ into which he had put every cent he had. He brooded over this view of the situation until he became so enraged that he made and kept a vow that he would kill any ‘Yankee’ force that attempted to come upon his place.” Continued next week.

for Munford's only other hit. • Duncan hit a threerun homer and Scott a two-run homer in the second inning as Munford beat Murray (Ky.) 7-0 on Saturday afternoon.

a godless age...But, we are living in such an age and the main reason we should be praying about revival is that we are anxious to see God's name vindicated and His glory manifested. We should be anxious to see something happening that will arrest the nations, all the peoples, and cause them to stop and to think again. When revival comes, the Lord’s people will delight and rejoice in Him and in His presence in their life. No longer will attendance at the worship services be looked upon as drudgery, but as sheer pleasure. We will get back to feeling honored to be allowed to worship. Instead of looking at the Lord as awaiting our call for His attention, we will recognize that we should be humbled that He is willing to accept our feeble praise and worship. When revival comes, the attitude of many will change. Our budgets will reflect His priorities instead of ours. Our aspirations for our children will be for them to serve Christ instead of just making “good money” on their job. When revival comes, Christ will be preeminent as is His due.
The butterbean plant The Butterbean Plant Last Saturday, I was picking butterbeans in my parents’ garden. It has been extremely dry this summer and especially at Gilt Edge where we have missed every rain it seems. Despite the drought, the plants are producing. It is remarkable at how well the plants are thriving in these extreme conditions. As I was picking, I came to a plant that was completely dried up. I looked around the plant. It had not been uprooted of bent over so that its stem was damaged. There was no reason that the plant should have withered. I suppose it had succumbed to the drought. As I examined the plant more carefully, I expected to see no beans on the plant. If I did, I expected them to be dried up as well. To my surprise, the plant had three pods. The pods were well developed and I was amazed that they were still very green. They seemed so
out of place on that dead plant. I opened the pods and to my disbelief, the beans inside were perfect. As we picked the entire patch, we discovered two other plants with the same characteristicscompletely dried up with fruit intact. The plant had sacrificed its life for the sake of its fruit. Seeing these plants reminded me of Jesus teaching that He is the vine and we are the branches. (John 15: 1-8) We are dependent on him for our very existence. Apart from Him, we will die. He is the giver and sustainer of life. I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10b) Col. 1: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. I thought also of the sacrifice of the Savior, how he gave his (physical) life that we might have (spiritual) life. As this humble butterbean plant had given up its own life to preserve the bean pods that
depended on it, Christ gave himself for us who are helpless and hopeless without him. Rom. 5: 6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Even in nature, God teaches us the lesson of self-sacrifice. We are to give ourselves as a living sacrifice to God. Ro 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. We are to follow the example of Christ if the situation demands it. 1Pe 2:21 For even hereunto were ye
called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: That includes but is not limited to our giving our life for others as Christ did His for us. 1Jo 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. We owe our Lord so much and yet we give Him so little. The words of the following hymn hopefully will help us reflect on our own lives and our relationship to our Lord. I gave My life for thee, My precious blood I shed, That thou might ransomed be, and raised up from the dead I gave, I gave My life for thee, what hast thou given for Me? I gave, I gave My life for thee, what hast thou given for Me?

Cross Connection Public Safety Notice! Over the next few months, the warm weather will bring people outdoors to work in their yards and gardens and begin getting swimming pools ready. The Poplar Grove Utility District would like to ensure that our customers are aware of the dangers associated with these activities. A garden hose submersed in any liquid or attached to certain devices used to spray pesticides or herbicides forms a cross connection. A cross connection is a situation where a possible source of contamination is directly linked to our public water system. If the end of your garden hose is connected to a chemical container, swimming pool or other contaminant during a water main break or fire, the substance can be siphoned back into the water system. This condition, known as back siphoning, could cause a public health hazard. Devices are available to prevent this problem; however the best solution is to always be careful how you use your garden hose. Please help us provide a safe supply of water to all of our customers. Remember; never submerge your hose in anything you would not want to drink. For more information on cross connections and how to protect against them call, Terry Dunn at 837-0181, Ext. 236, Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM.-4:30 P.M.

Several years ago I drove up to Middle Tennessee to hunt turkeys with a friend of mine. When I got up there, I asked him, “How many turkeys have you seen lately? We got a few here and there but nothing to write home about. Where have you seen birds lately?” He told me about a spot that he had visited and saw a few birds out there and offered to drive me out there for a look see. Then the ladies heard the drive out there “offer” and they wanted to go too. So all four of us and me with a camera piled into the pickup truck and went looking for turkeys in Middle Tennessee. We ended up in a hilly terrain with a lot of rocks making the truck bounce more than usual. When we got there there we no turkeys to be seen anywhere. I was thinking about putting

Greetings. Hope all of you had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day on Sunday? As for me, after a brief service at my church, I attended the Installation Service for my first cousin, Pastor Kevin R. King Jr. Rev. King was installed as pastor of New Hope MB Church in Burlison. Rev. Richard Coe, former pastor, passed away in January of this year. Several friends and Rev. King's family were present, including New Hope's former first lady, Sister Ruby Coe, who as always was looking lovely. Rev. Coe was an outstanding man, family man and a devoted Christian man who did wonderful things for the New Hope community. Rev. King's mother, LaRue Albritton, was on hand along with sisters Debra Elkins (Terry) and Glo Dine (Ralph) Davis, Shanta King and family, brother Michael and his wife. Aunts Florence Trente, Mildred Sherrill and Diane White, his uncles Floyd White and Mins. Pink Sherrill Jr.
Special friend, Rev. Daryl Wynn and pastor of Mt. Zion, preached the installation service. Rev. Israel Sheppard, pastor of Union Grove, brought the change to the church. Min. Cassandra Henderson gave us the lovely welcome address, Bro. Eddie Whitley welcomed us and Rev. Daryl Wynn gave the charge to the pastor and also Pastor I. Sheppard gave the closing prayer. Family and a few friends gathered at the Pastor King's mother's lovely home for a delicious home-cooked meal that we thoroughly enjoyed. Congratulations Pastor King. Also in attendance were Pastor King's lovely daughter, Tamera King, and her two handsome sons. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Ralph (Glodine) Davis who celebrated 41 years of marriage on Sunday, March 17. The happy couple now lives and works in Johnson City. She's the oldest daughter of LaRue Albritton. Warren Miles Trent from Arizona paid a visit with his mother Florence Trent last week. It was a lovely visit for them

Hello everybody! Sure hope you’re all doing well today! We are looking forward to spring and the weather being much nicer than it has been here in the last few days! But we’re never really satisfied are we? It’s either too hot or too cold; hardly ever it’s just right! Maybe if we all moved to the Canary Islands we’d be more satisfied. I had a friend that was an exchange student there for a year and she absolutely loved it! We’d like to say thank you to the folks at Rosemark Church of Christ for coming and making the residents feel so special last Saturday! They really did enjoy themselves.

Please do pray for Libby, I cannot even imagine how lost she must feel without him. I know I would be too if it were my precious husband Val! Many of you know because you have experienced that

Stacey's mom, Pam Cobbs Springfield and Stacey's husband Marcus and their lovely daughters Taylor and Saisha played hostesses, entertaining several family members and good friends, including her play aunt/cousin Annette Burton Lake. I dropped in on my uncle and his family on Sunday afternoon, Isiah Burton Sr., daughter Alma (Eddie) Dye and my cousins' uncle's three handsome sons Tyrone, Thomas and Edward Burton. I also popped in on Aunt Mary Burton, who was headed out for a minute, and also dropped by to get a big hug from my play pastor and dear friend for life, now back in Jamestown, Irene Harvey. The March meeting for Jolly Corteria Club was held on Tuesday afternoon in the lovely home member Dollie Boykins. She served a lovely cold cut tray, party favorites, iced tea, sodas and assorted cookies for des-

same loss! We love you Libby!!!! We still have one room that is not filled. So if you know of anyone that might need a place to live, please call me! I hear some sad stories of people who would like to come live here and get out of the situation that they are in, but are afraid for one reason or another. Pray for those people! There “are” people like that right here among us all. They do need our prayers! I’m so anxious for the trees to start budding and the flowers to start blooming, spring is in the air! This is what God intended it to be…give us just enough cold weather to make us appreciate summer, then give us just enough hot weather to make us appreciate cool-
er weather. Tennessee has about the most even seasons. I’ve lived in Wyoming for 20 years, Texas for two years. Those two are right the opposite because Wyoming is almost always cold and you’re still cutting your yard in December and January in Texas! But Tennessee is just right!! It has all the seasons and I love that!!! Well folks, I read a quote the other day I would like to share with you, it goes like this… ..”Live Simply…Love Generously…Care Deeply…Speak Kindly…and Leave the rest to God”. Until next week, give God the glory for what you have, love each other as yourself, you just never know what’s around the corner. God bless you all!!!

the camera up when all of sudden it seemed out of nowhere turkeys appeared from every direction and they were not scared of the truck. The man explained that he took care of this area for the horses, so, the turkeys were use to the truck and it did not bother them. I counted the turkeys and out of all the years that I have been hunting, I can testify that I have never seen that many wild turkeys in one place in my life. We counted a total of 177 birds. Remember his exact words, “...seen a few birds.” If 177 wild turkeys on one hill side is a few birds I would like to see what my friend would call a passel of birds.
