White Christmas

New coalition focuses on drugs By JESSICA COOKE jcooke@covingtonleader.com

The Tipton County Anti-Drug Coalition, which is still in the early stages of its development, held their monthly meeting on Thursday, Dec. 20 at 9 a.m. at the Covington PCS. Various members from the community were in attendance, including coalition officers as well as representatives from law enforcement, education and legislative institutions across the county. The coalition is a state-funded entity and is currently working on meeting contractual requirements as such. Due to an upcoming audit in January, last week’s meeting served to tie up several loose ends concerning the coalition’s formation, including the bylaws that had been drafted earlier this year and tabled for further discussion. Also discussed in the meeting were the Title IV policy and a member involvement agreement. The meeting also served to discuss the coalition’s immediate focus in terms of anti-drug efforts around the community. At present, they wish to focus on the abuse of prescription drugs, consistent with the Tennessee Prescription Safety Act of 2012. Coordinator Robin Racine presented an See drugs, page A2

Brighton aldermen sworn in By JESSICA COOKE jcooke@covingtonleader.com

The Brighton Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting on Dec. 12 began with newly-elected aldermen Melissa Sartain and Sarah Crocker being sworn into office. Aldermen Jim Wyatt and Philip Mathis, along with mayor Jeff Scott, were also sworn in at this time, having won re-election. Attending the meeting as guests were representatives from the local Eagle Scouts, who presented the board with a request to build 13 birdhouses in the park. The scouts presented the mayor with a diagram as to the location and specifics of the birdhouses, and quoted the cost of materials in the amount of approximately $300. The scouts wish to begin the project in February. A motion was made to approve the request for the project and its funding, which passed without opposition. Discussion was held concerning setting up a Facebook page for the Town of Brighton. Aldermen Sartain and Crocker reported that other cities in the area have presences on Facebook which have proven useful for publicizing events, fostering community involvement and serving many other positive roles. After some discussion, a motion was made and passed for aldermen Sartain and Crocker to set

A look back at the news of 2012 By LEADER STAFF As we do at the end of each year, this week we’re reflecting on the year’s biggest stories. Following is a list of the stories that made 2012 memorable. We hope you enjoy this feature and welcome any comments you might have about the list. January: Jacob Brown sentenced to life without parole One day after he was convicted in the brutal murders of James “Ed” and Bertha “Bea” Walker, Jacob Brown took the stand, apologizing to the Walkers’ family members while his own father sobbed loudly in the hallway of the justice complex. The Walkers were found dead inside their Wiley Drive home in Munford on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011. The couple was beaten so badly with an aluminum baseball bat – more than 40 times combined – police initially believed they’d been shot to death. Brown was questioned the following day and arrested after confessing to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Mark Reynolds. Though he had been diagnosed with schizophrenia in September 2010, in March 2011 he was ruled competent to stand trial and was tried as an adult. The state charged him with two counts each of first-degree murder, felony murder and especially aggravated burglary. After deliberating for an estimated hour and a half Thursday night, a jury returned a verdict of guilty on all six counts. Charged with determining his sentence on the first-degree murder charges, the jury decided he should serve life without See year, page A2

The department still would like to get more estimates, however, so the issue will be revisited at next month’s meeting. • On behalf of the public works department, discussion was held concerning the appearance and placement of signs mandating that pets must be leashed in certain areas.

Hunter, who resigned on Sunday, Jan. 15, said his duties as recorder conflicted too much with duties at his place of business as well as time spent with his family. He was not sighted at the meeting. Former Mayor Phillip Nelson, who has been the mayor since the death of mayor Wayne Sloan in 2010, cited in his resignation letter problems with other aldermen as his reason for resigning. The council, which normally seats three alderman and a recorder, was attended by Alderman Rodney McLillie and Vice-Mayor/Alderman Steve Fletcher. City Attorney Lyle Jones was also in attendance. Before the meeting began, Fletcher asked that Holly McDowell serve as recorder pro tempore to take the minutes. See year, page A3

Flashback

Honoring those who strengthen America By Tom Vilsack U.S. Secretary of Agriculture As Americans celebrate the holiday season, we have a chance to catch up with family and friends, count our blessings and reflect on the year behind us. Looking back on 2012, I am proud of those across rural America who stayed resilient in the face of disaster. They managed farms, ranches and Main Street businesses through a record drought, an historic hurricane, and more. Ultimately, their hard work kept the momentum of rural America going strong. I’m thankful for the thousands of men and women who, year in and year out, step up to serve our nation. I know that many of these military service members come from our small towns and rural communities – and that no matter where they’re from, each is a hero to our nation. They’re stationed around the world today and many will spend their holidays away from family and friends, so that we can be safely at home with ours. I am further grateful at this time of year for the service and sacrifice of our 22 million American veterans – more than 6 million of whom live, work and raise their families in rural America. Finally I am heartened that so many Americans stand up during the holidays to help those who are struggling. Volunteers from our smallest towns to our biggest cities are helping ensure that no one goes hungry over the holidays – especially our children. They’re making sure that everyone has a warm place to sleep. They’re working hard to make sure every family the chance to have a special holiday celebration. I hope that everyone who is able will give some of their time during the holidays, and beyond, because every minute we give strengthens the resilience of our nation. As we celebrate the holiday season, we have much to be thankful for. I hope that you’ll join me in saying “thank you” to those who keep us going strong as a nation – from the brave men and women defending our freedom around the world, to the volunteers who strengthen our communities here at home. Wherever you are during this special time of year, I wish you a happy and safe holiday.

letter to the editor Reply to Wallace letter In reply to Mr. Bill Wallace’s letter titled “Cause and Effect.” I find it difficult to understand why a professional tractor mechanic, with such a keen sense of analyzing problems, can’t understand Obama won because he received more votes than Romney as Mr. Krauthammer pointed out. An unconfirmed report from one of the news networks reported 60 to 70 percent of the eligible female voting population cast their ballot for Obama. This would suggest two thirds of eligible female voters closest to you and I, wife, mother, sister and daughter, voted for President Obama. I would be interested to know which group he would put these beautiful ladies. Ray Albritton

Correspondence

Tipton County and the Civil War Compiled by Russell B. Bailey Tipton County Historian On Nov. 23, 1862, Mrs. Mattie Lynn of Idaville wrote: “The battle of 8th [Perryville] has saddened many households… When I think of the boys so many of them cut in the midst of youth when their hopes for the future was bright and would have been useful in state and church. “Our good and noble friend Archy [Baird, Co. C, 9th Infantry] has fought his last battle; died in four days after he was wounded and I cannot tell you how sad I felt when I heard it for poor Lois, what a hard trial it will be for her…” Reports of more casualties trickled into Tipton: Robert Marshall had been shot in the neck and died in the arms of Jonathan Sloan Hill; Alfred Ward and Edward T. Elam were wounded and both had legs amputated in hospitals. Tiptonians fortunate enough to survive the battle suffered starvation, lack of water and bushwhacking on the march back to Tennessee. T. J. Walker wrote:

It’s a rainy, foggy Sunday night, and I’m trying to get the column done by the early deadline this week, and next! I’m having to type it on Microsoft Publisher and fax it! My computer messed up again; we have no internet. I’m ready for Christmas! We had the Watkins Christmas here Friday night. Twenty folks enjoyed ham, chicken tenders, sweet potato casserole, potato casserole, green beans, baked beans, corn, deviled eggs, slaw and mac-and-cheese. We also had lots of desserts, cookies and a cheese ball. Everyone had a good time eating and talking. It was a good get-together!

“We commenced our retreat out of Kentucky through the wild cat section which is a very hilly and rough section…it was Gen. Bragg’s custom to always push his wagon trains far to the rear on a retreat… he did not issue us any rations for several days except salt and one ear of corn a day to season it… “Our faithful colored cook volunteered to go on one of his scouts for grub for the mess. As we had strict orders not to leave ranks unless well armed, we advised him to keep with the troops. However, he, contrary to our advice, went but he never returned. No doubt his bones now bleach in that inhospitable section—a victim to his loyalty to the Confederate cause. A nobler or truer heart never beat in the breast of any living being… Peace to his ashes!” Polk’s Corps of Gen. Braxton Bragg’s army began leaving Tullahoma on the 22d marching via Manchester to Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Many were without shoes. These men were left by the railroad to be taken by the first available train. That same day, Bragg officially re-named the forces he

James and I ate at the new restaurant yesterday and today after church with Clint and Courtney. It was nice and very personalized for Covington; there were pictures of Mt. Carmel Presbyterian Church, the Ruffin, the Ritz, the Covington water tower, etc. We had lots of fun and good food! We hope to take the Queen of Mt. Carmel, Catherine McCalla, this week after Christmas. I’ve been working on making coasters from ceramic tiles for a week now. Everybody in the family is getting some! Carol McMahan remains in rehab and Barbara Johnson is recovering from surgery. Sue Bringle is getting over a fall. Larry Whaley II was at church today – that was wonderful! So many are in our prayers, es-

commanded to be known as the “Army of Tennessee,” the name it would bear the rest of the war. Miss. - The 1st Tennessee Heavy Artillery was stationed at Vicksburg. The 7th Tennessee Cavalry and Captain John Gracey Hall’s contingent of the 51st Tennessee Infantry were at Holly Springs in Gen. Earl Van Dorn’s Army of West Tennessee. On Nov. 8, the 7th Tennessee and 1st Mississippi Cavalry Regiments met the advance of Gen. U. S. Gwrant’s forces at Lamar seven miles south of La Grange, Tenn. The Confederates advanced in a column of fours on the road with a ridge on their left and a ditch on their right. They were attacked by cavalry of the 2nd Illinois, 3rd Michigan and 7th Kansas who rode to the ridge on the Confederate left and fired down into the unsuspecting Rebels. “We were thrown into confusion by a Federal flank attack. The flight and panic was general…the men falling over some wounded horses in the road, and into deep ditches; 21 of the 7th Cavalry were wounded, captured and paroled.”

pecially our servicemen and women. Congratulations to Tommy and Miranda on the birth of Mabry Catherine, who weighed seven pounds three ounces and was 18 ¾ inches long. She was born on 12/21/12. Prayers have been answered for this wonderful couple who has been waiting to adopt. We can’t wait to see her! Little Ethan Thomas Matlock made his first appearance at church this morning and our traditional first-time prayer was said by Jeff Phillips. Ethan is a handsome little fella! Happy birthday this week goes to Chris Laxton on Dec. 23, to Michael Moore and Miranda Schroader on the 24th, to Logan Wall, Jill Matlock, Bruce Hazlerig and Shelley Dickey on the 26th, to

Justin Harrell on the 28th and to David Keith on the 29th! Happy anniversary to Bill and Pat Gatlin on Christmas Day and to Jeff and Jennifer Phillips on the 28th! Sympathy is extended to Bill Gatlin in the death of a cousin, and to Becky Evins in the death of her grandmother, Lu Warren. These families are in my prayers. This week’s Farmer’s Almanac Quote: “For luck, don’t display a new calendar until after sunup on Jan. 1.” And we all want good luck! “Thanks for Reading” this week goes to Milton Murphy. Sa-lute! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year from Mt. Carmel!

CHS band student will play in Rose Parade By JESSICA COOKE jcooke@covingtonleader.com Covington High School junior Aryn Mullins has an exciting week ahead of her. Mullins, who plays clarinet with the CHS band, has been selected as one of approximately 300 students nationwide to march in the New Year's Day Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif. with the Bands of America Honor Band. She is the only student chosen from West Tennessee and one of three state-wide. Her mother, Dee, says that to qualify for this extremely high honor, Mullins was required to submit recorded versions of six pieces of audition music to Music for All and Bands of America

Honor Band, and was chosen based on those recordings. Mullins was chosen to play in the band earlier in the year, and was featured in a May edition The Leader in an article by Sherri Onorati. Earlier in the year, many fundraisers were held and Mullins worked hard to raise the money to cover the cost of the trip. Her mother says that she and her daughter are very grateful for all who donated money to help her get to Pasadena. Mullins left for Pasadena on Dec. 26 and will remain until Jan. 2. The oncein-a-lifetime trip will involve rehearsals, performances, special activities and, of course, the world-famous Rose Parade on Jan. 1.

An active part of the Covington High student body, Mullins is a member of the National Honor Society in addition to keeping busy with the CHS marching band. She has also developed her musical abilities by playing in several different honor bands around the regions, including All West Honor Band. Her mother says that Mullins loves marching band and would like to study music production in college.

Right: Aryn Mullins will be playing clarinet in the Bands of America Honor band and will march in the New Year's Day Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif.

TN seat belt safety mascot visits schools

Ollie Otter teaches local elementary school students about seat belt safety.

On Oct. 16, students at Crestview Elementary School and Covington Integrated Arts Academy received a visit from a special guest. Ollie Otter, Tennessee's booster seat and seat belt safety mascot, visited the schools to promote the use of booster seats. Ollie's program also encourages students to wear their seat belts and to raise the awareness of roadway construction site safety. Ollie's slogan for the students was, “Under 4'9 - It's Booster Time!” Ollie was joined by several volunteers working to increase booster seat and seat belt usage among Tennessee's elementary school children. Michelle Wright, West Tennessee Coordinator for "It's Booster Time,” presented the program to the students with the assistance of Tennessee State Trooper Chris Richardson. Additional volunteers from the Tennessee Technology Center at Covington were Daniel Reeves, who dressed as Ollie, and Patrick Gibson who played the roadway construction worker. The Ollie Otter program is sponsored by the Tennessee Transportation Development Foundation, a non profit group established by the Tennessee Road Builders As-

sociation, and the TRBA Ladies Auxiliary. The statewide safety education program has made presentations in all 95 counties in Tennessee and is now crossing state borders. Ollie Otter communicates that Tennessee law requires the use of booster seats until a child is 4'9” tall or nine years old. An orange and white construction barrel, representing Ollie's home, is on display to teach the children the importance of roadway safety near construction work zones. The children were told to aswk their parents, “Please slow down!” when they see construction barrels and road builders on the road. The children were also taught about “Belts to Bones,” and what part of the body the seat belt should hit when properly buckled up, the collarbone, the sternum and the hipbone. Student volunteers were measured to show the height differences between those who need booster seats and those who don't. Submitted by Glenn Baker of the Tennessee Technology Center of Covington.

Top 10 of 2012

Tipton County's newsmakers in the world of sports By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Editor's note: A lot of high school athletes in Tipton County helped make 2012 a memorable year. In this and next week's paper, we will highlight what we believe to be the top 10 Tipton County sports stories of 2012. This week we will list the top 10, followed by next week's top five.

But what a ride it was in the regular season. The Cougars defeated Millington for the first time in several years on a dramatic two-point conversion. It was the first win for the seniors over their bitter rivals to the south. A big win over Dyer County was a also landmark victory as the Cougars made the playoffs for the second straight season.

No. 10 Continued success for the Cougars The season certainly ended before the Cougar faithful wanted to as Munford's football team lost to undefeated Jackson North Side in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs.

No. 9 Cardinals streak late The Brighton football team started the season 1-3, prompting some to surely write off the season. But the Cardinals had other plans. Brighton reeled off six straight wins,

The Covington Charger golf and football programs were recognized during the past week for excellence this fall on the course and the gridiron. Both the Best of Preps committee for the local area and the Tennessee Sports Writers Association (TWSA) announced awards. CHS senior Tommy Beasley and junior Brad Walker were selected to the BOP Division 1 golf team. Both had great seasons, earning spots in the A-AA state tournament in McMinnville earlier this year. Six Charger footballers were tapped for recognition by the BOP, with two of those also receiving All-State honors from the TWSA. Johnston White’s 2,673-yard rushing season, a school record, and state-leading 44 rushing and receiving touchdowns garnered him notice as a BOP offensive finalist and a place on the Tennessee county team. The TSWA also recognized White, placing him on the All-State first team on offense for Class 4A. Carlos Williams’ school season record and state-leading eight interceptions gave him the nod from the BOP on the Tennessee See chs, page A18

including a dramatic win over Millington and league victories over Munford, Dyer County and Hardin County to earn a No. 2 seed in the Class 6A playoffs. The season ended with a first round playoff loss to Millington, but the Cardinals definitely gave opponents something to think about next year. No. 8 Cards nearly make state Brighton was two seconds away from making history in 2012. But Bartlett senior Anthlon Bell pulled the rug out from under the Cardinals' players, coaches and fans with one shot when he made a 3-pointer from the top of the key with two ticks left on the

clock for a 76-75 Bartlett win, ending the Cardinals' season and preventing them from advancing to the sectionals, which would have a been a first in the program's history. Nevertheless, it was an exciting run for the Cardinals under first-year coach Darryle Rogers No. 7 Lady Rebels return to Murfreesboro As defending state champs, the Tipton-Rosemark Academy softball team entered the 2012 season with targets on their backs. Nevertheless, the team found success, returning to the state tournament to defend its title. See ten, page A18

Lady Chargers win two of three in Ala. By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com The Lady Chargers traveled to Fort Payne, Ala., for a Christmas tournament and improved their record to 14-2, going 2-1 in the event and finishing third. In the opening game, Covington defeated Anniston (Ala.) 5841. Ashia Jones was the game's high scorer with 21 points. Janeika Mason added 17 along with 13 rebounds. “I thought we improved as the game progressed,” Covington coach Dion Real said. “This was a solid opponent which en-

tered the game with an identical record to ours, 12-1. I liked the way we pulled it out. It was a total team win.” In the semifinal, the Lady Chargers took on a Sparkman (Ala.) team that is ranked as the No. 1 team in Alabama and in the top 100 teams in the nation. Covington acquitted itself well, taking Sparkman to overtime before falling 67-63. “This was a game I thought we should have won. They were led by a player I will never forget,” Real said. Alexis Jennings was a onewoman show for Sparkman,

netting 41 points while pulling down 25 rebounds, even though she fouled out with two minutes remaining in overtime. Jones led CHS in scoring with 23 and Precious Harvey added 14. Covington bettered the opponent at the free throw line, hitting at an 82 percent (19/23) clip to 65 percent (13/20). “We played as well in the first half as we have played all year, but the second half exposed the weaknesses we have to work on," said Real. "We gave up too many offensive rebounds and had too many turnovers. This is as close to a post-season at-

mosphere as we will see in the regular season.” Covington blitzed Grissom (Ala.) in the consolation game 71-34. Jones dropped in a season-high 31 and Mason chipped in 12. “I was proud of the way we bounced back after a tough loss on Friday night," Real said. “We played well and got this one in the bag early.” CHS returns to regular season play on Jan. 4 hosting Crockett County. The Chargers travel to Harrison, Ark., for a holiday tournament Dec. 27-29.

TRA lost just seven games during the season: three to eventual DII-A state champ USJ and one each to DCA, Davidson and St. Benedict, all three of which advanced to the state tournament. “I'm pleased overall,” Layton said. “We just didn't get it done at the end.”

No. 6 Rebels go to state The Tipton-Rosemark Academy Rebels were one of hottest teams in the state heading into the DII-A State Tournament. TRA went two and out, but they showed they can compete on a stage with anybody. During the regular season the Rebels, who finished 32-14, competed against and beat some of the largest and best public schools in the area. In Murfreesboro, the Rebels lost two very tight games to Ezell-Harding and Harding Academy. “I still feel like we had a very solid season,” said TRA coach Brad Smith, whose team finished one win short of a state tournament berth last year. “In the preseason, one of our goals was to compete for a state championship … And we got there.”
