Brown awarded Silver Star Munford native says he's ‘humbled’ by prestigious award By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. – Munford native Christian "CB" Brown, a marine wounded at war in 2011, was awarded the nation's third-highest honor in a ceremony on Friday, May 3. Brown, a former squad leader with the 1st Batallion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, was awarded the Silver Star for his heroic actions while deployed to the Helmand Province of Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Though Brown, a 2004 graduate of Munford High School, is widely known for losing both legs after being injured by an improvised explosive device on Dec. 13, 2011, he earned his Silver Star during battle the week before. The Marine Corps reports Brown was honored for actions shown after his squad was attacked while on patrol on Dec. 7, 2011. During the firefight, Brown, then a lance corporal, ordered two marines to move to a different location in order to gain advantage over the attacking insurgents. During the movement, one of the marines was shot in the head and critically wounded. Brown reportedly contacted the medical evacuation and led his squad to the designated landing zone while still under heavy fire. The helicopter was unable to land due to the attacking insurgents and Brown identified an alter-

nate landing zone 400 meters away. He then carried the injured marine 300 meters while still under heavy fire. After assuring the wounded marine was safely evacuated, Brown and the rest of the squad returned to the firefight. The marine, Lance Cpl. Christopher P. J. Levy, 21, of Ramseur, N.C., died three days later.

"Brown had only been a squad leader for about a week at the time of the action," Brigadier General James Lukeman, commanding general of the 2nd Marine Division, said. "He got the squad leader job just by being the guy, being the one people naturally follow. He is a natural leader with physical courage and competence."

‘Spongy dirt,’ weather may delay splash pad construction By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com If Mother Nature has anything to do with it, construction on the Walker Park splash pad may be delayed. If the Town of Atoka has its say, however, residents will be splashing around by Independence Day. "A2H understands our desire to have this done by the Fourth of July," said Town Administrator Brian Koral during a meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen Tuesday night. Construction on the grant-funded splash pad has been delayed not only by the rainy conditions this spring, but also by spongy dirt, Koral reported. In a memo to the board, Koral said as construction began several issues were identified that were not anticipated. Town Engineer Bill Edwards said subsurface conditions varied significantly from the boring logs and additional measures were required in order to provide an acceptable subgrade upon which the splash pad could be built. In laymen's terms, contractors want to make sure they're building a solid foundation that will support the splash pad. Koral reported all surfaces supporting the weight of the pad

have now been "disturbed" and no other soil problems have been found. The change order submitted to the board details materials to correct the problem and ensure a good foundation for the water feature will cost an estimated $55,824.31. Thirty days have also been added to the contract, but contractors are working to meet the deadline. The splash pad is part of the new Walker Park master plan. Though the park was constructed in 2010, a pavilion and restrooms were destroyed by arson in 2012. TOURNEY TIME Area teams wrap regular season, prepare for district tournaments, B1

The fire was set by 12-year-olds. In addition to the splash pad, the new site plan includes more recreational features, such as soccer fields, ball field, playground equipment, a larger pavilion area and a dog park. The splash pad will be the first of its kind in Tipton County. The City of Munford planned to construct one of its own, however residents strongly opposed the project. Current plans have the splash pad opening on July 4 and the town shooting fireworks on July 5.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack recently announced grant awards to 110 agricultural producers and rural businesses that will help create jobs and develop new products. Claybrook Farm in Tipton County will use one of the grants to expand operations to include retail sales of Angus beef in the tri-state region. According to owner Dave Turner, Claybrook Farm has had great wholesale success with its Black Angus beef featured by chefs at restaurants in the Memphis area including Chez Philippe, The Peabody and Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen. “With the help of USDA we are now able to take the next big step and invest more in marketing and hire more people for sales and packaging so we can expand into the regional retail market,” he said. “As a family producer there’s nothing more rewarding than hearing how much a chef or family has enjoyed our beef products,” said Turner. “We’re grateful for this partnership with USDA that helps us grow the business and even more motivated to maximize this opportunity for the betterment of our farm, family and community.” Turner said, “Progressive management practices, rotational grazing on a mix of grasses, avoiding pesticides, hormones and antibiotics, and finishing with home grown corn and crop products keeps

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 feature the new director at the Munford Library, Lindsey Moore, who was hired two months ago.

Q&A WITH LINDSEY MOORE

Q: Tell us about the circumstances that led to you working at the library. A: Growing up I wanted to work with children. A lot of the responsibilities of a librarian include working with children, so when the job became available I knew that it would be something that I would greatly enjoy. Of course I love the interaction with the adults of the community as well. I just love working with people. After applying and interviewing with the Library Board I was offered the position and I

couldn’t be happier. Q: When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up and why? A: I always wanted to be a teacher because I always had the most wonderful and influential teachers. I would make my two little brothers play “school” with me. I would never let them go to “recess” until they finished all of their “assignments.” I guess I was a little harsh. Q: What person had the biggest influence on you growing up and why? A: Growing up I always

admired my great grandmother. She was such a humble woman with strong faith and always put her family first. I still aspire to be just like her. Q: What do you like to do in your spare time? A: Lately all of my spare time has been spent preparing for our new baby. It’s a lot of work already and she isn’t even here yet! I also enjoy spending time with my husband and our families. There is nothing more important in life than you’re your family. Q: How have the duties of a librarian changed over the years considering the emergence of the Internet? A: Of course the emergence of the Internet has greatly influenced the need of reference materials, so we don’t have many patrons who come in looking for things like encyclopedias. There are still plenty of people who love to come in and check out a book to read for pleasure. I have many patrons tell me that they just love the feeling of holding an actual book

and turning the pages as opposed to using an e-reader or tablet. With that being said, I have tried to keep our material in the library very upto-date with as much newly-released material as possible. Q: Do kids today even know what the Dewey Decimal System is? Is it still used? A: The majority of kids who visit the library are familiar with the Dewey Decimal System. If they ask where a book is and I tell them, they can usually go find it on their own with no problems. We will always have a need for the Dewey Decimal System or there would be no organization to our library. Q: Are your main customers children or adults? A: Our main customers are adults. The majority of our patrons come in to use the computers, but we still have plenty of patrons who come in looking for a good read. - Jeff Ireland

James Fields will not be returning as the principal of Crestview Middle School, superintendent Dr. Buddy Bibb said this week. Fields, who has been employed with the county for nearly a quarter century, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol on Feb. 16. He reportedly crashed his 2004 Dodge Ram in a single-vehicle accident on Huffman Road. Fields was not injured in the accident, but a state trooper found both empty and full beer cans in the truck. According to the incident report obtained from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Fields smelled of alcohol, was walking in a staggering manner and was slurring his speech. Fields allegedly told the trooper he’d had two beers but after performing poorly on sobriety tests, he admitted to consuming 8-12 beers at his home prior to driving his vehicle.

Towns competing for dog park grant online By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Atoka, Brighton, Covington and Munford have dog lovers barking, and its for a good cause. They're not literally barking, but voting in the Bark for Your Park campaign by PetSafe.net. The competition allows municipalities to compete against others in the country for grant funds for a dog park. Fifteen finalists will be chosen to compete for the $100,000 grand prize and four additional $25,000 prizes will

be awarded. Locally, a site near the animal shelter in Brighton has received the most support though Atoka is the only municipality already planning to add a dog park to its city. Alderman Danny Feldmayer said grant funds would bring a dog park to Atoka quicker. Organizers of the Brighton effort have stated they will donate the money to the town should they win. Those interested may vote twice daily in May. Visit PetSafe.net to vote.

Brown

Continued from A1 Lukeman praised Brown for his constant motivation and leadership, including a story of Brown inspecting the commanding general's gear before going on a patrol in Afghanistan. "It's not surprising to me that when faced with extraordinary circumstances, he acted the way he did," said Lukeman. Brown said he was very humbled by the award. "I was once standing where all of you are in the battalion," he told the marines in formation. "You all are like family to me. Those of you I don't

know, I'm proud of you as well for putting on this uniform and doing our nation's bidding. I appreciate everything you all do." Marine Corps journalist Lance Cpl. Scott Whiting reported at the event people lined up by the dozens to personally thank Brown for his actions. Additionally, marines from his squad were on-hand to see Brown awarded. "Brown is just a force of personality," said Lukeman. "Ask anyone in Wounded Warrior Regiment and they'll say the same thing. Even

after losing his legs, he continues to lead, mentor and train other marines and sailors." Brown's personal awards include the Purple Heart, Combat Action Ribbon, "General Kvinitaze" Georgian Achievement Medal and the Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal. He is currently with Wounded Warrior Battalion East, Marine Corps Detachment Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. A die-hard marine, Brown hasn't let his injury slow him down too much.

He continues to work with the marines and has also started Gunslinger Outfitters, an outfitter service specifically for wounded veterans.

Continued from A1 our final product all natural.” Turner has been raising Black Angus since 1975 when he took over from the Claybrook family. Since then the 740 acre operation has grown to include more than a thousand acres of grassland for grazing, hay production and feed crops. Retail outlets currently include Miss Cordelia’s Grocery in Harbor Town, the Memphis Farmers Market and Sunflower Health Food in Dyersburg. More information is available at www. claybrookangus.com/meat.html. “This support will benefit rural businesses and the communities where the recipients are located,” Vilsack said. “These awards also will advance USDA’s goals to develop a bio-based economy and support local and regional food systems.” USDA Rural Development’s ValueAdded Producer Grants (VAPG) help agricultural producers increase farm income by expanding marketing opportunities, creating new products or developing new uses for existing products. The program includes many kinds of locally-produced agricultural food products, and gives priority to projects that focus on increasing opportunities for small and mid-size family farmers and ranchers, beginning farmers and ranchers, and socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers.  Funding for each project is contingent upon the recipient meeting the terms of the grant agreement. USDA helps fund an array of projects nationwide involving locally produced and marketed foods. These include cheese, wine, reduced-cholesterol dairy products, produce, packaged poultry, pork and beef products, and a variety of foods processed or prepared from locally grown fruits and vegetables. VAPGs are an important element of USDA’s Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food initiative, which coordinates the agency’s work to support local and regional food systems. Previous VAPG awards supporting local and regional projects are mapped on the Know Your Farmer, Know Your

Food compass, http://www.usda.gov/ maps/maps/kyfcompassmap.htm Over the last four years the VAPG program has helped more than 600 agricultural producers and rural businesses expand economic opportunities and create jobs in rural communities. USDA, through its Rural Development mission area, has a portfolio of programs designed to improve the economic stability of rural communities, families, businesses, farmers and ranchers. USDA Rural Development invests in jobs, infrastructure, community development, homeownership and affordable rental housing to improve the economic health of rural communities. During the last four years the agency has assisted more than 1.5 million Tennessee families and businesses in 158 communities, investing more than $3.3 Billion into local economies through affordable loans, loan guarantees and grants. Since 2009 USDA staff have undertaken historic efforts to save more than $700 million in taxpayer funds through targeted, common-sense budget reductions. These reductions have put USDA in a better position to carry out its mission, even while implementing sequestration - the across-the-board budget reductions mandated under terms of the Budget Control Act. Our goal is to make the required cuts in a fair manner that causes as little disruption to our customers as possible. The administration’s plan for rural America has brought about historic investment and resulted in stronger rural communities. Under the President’s leadership, these investments in housing, community facilities, businesses and infrastructure have strengthened America’s economy and empowered small towns and rural communities.

FLASHBACK

GUEST OPINION

The pleasure problem

Our mother attempted to raise the four girls as little ladies and us two boys as gentlemen. When commercials started showing women in bikinis or bras, the television, on the rare occasion it was on, was either turned off or the channel changed. We were not allowed to have anything considered vulgar or obscene and definitely avoided certain topics, including the subject of sex. Needless to say, when I joined the Navy, the world got real big, real fast. There was a lot mama did not tell me. Now, I am still a little uncomfortable discussing the topic of sex publicly, but the times require an adult conversation. Please do not think me a prude, but my study of history, life experiences and study of the Bible has led me to the conclusion that the problem with sex today, as with so many other things, is the love of pleasure. I have been faithfully married for nearly 34 years and I am not averse to pleasure. Sex as intended by the Creator is a good and wonderful thing, but just as the ancient Hebrews, Greeks and Romans, we have perverted it into something beyond what I believe was intended. You cannot watch a family show on television without the risk of commercials focusing on sex products. Victoria’s secrets are no longer secret, clothing lines for preteens have become prostiteen wardrobes and pop culture seems to flaunt sexuality of all sorts without end. Families are destroyed because of man’s, and J IM HARDIN woman’s, desire for sex outside the institution of marriage. AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases came to us because of the pursuit of sexual pleasure. Men commit rape, school teachers seduce minors, babies beget babies and our children today are left to see no boundaries in the pursuit of sexual pleasure. What has happened is nothing new. The people of Sodom and Gomorrah, the Greeks of the Isle of Lesbos, the Romans of Caligula’s time have all seen their civilizations destroyed in part because the citizens pursued personal pleasure over honorable and healthy living. Mark Antony is not the only man to have come to ruin because of his sexual desires. Don’t get me wrong. I like sex just as much as the next man (sorry kids, I know that grosses you out), but I have come to see it not as the end of a happy marriage, but a conduit to a healthy marriage. God created so much for us to enjoy, but to do so in the right way and considering the proper purpose. The love of money is the root of all evil, but used as purposed, money can do a lot of good in addition to helping us support our families. Food is the fuel our bodies need and we stay fueled because it is often pleasurable to the pallet, but we face an obesity epidemic because we often focus on the pleasure food brings rather than its nutrition. Work is good until you become a workaholic. A “little wine” as Paul writes to Timothy can be good for the stomach, but man has turned spirits into DUIs, parties that often lead to actions we later regret, and alcoholism. All these problems because we pursue pleasure over the primary purpose of things. Sex was designed to help the human species SEE HARDIN, PAGE A5

multiyear Food, Farm and Jobs Bill. In January, Congress took short-term action to extend many 2008 Farm Bill programs for nine months. Those programs will expire in September, limiting their effectiveness and providing no long-term certainty for farmers, ranchers and rural communities. As Congress returns to Washington in the coming days, leaders from both parties have signaled a willingness to come together and get a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill passed. That is promising news.

can people, while providing new income opportunities across rural America. It would maintain important agricultural research, and ensure access to safe and nutritious food for all Americans. A comprehensive bill would also continue programs that directly help rural communities – such as the 110 grants USDA awarded this week under our Value-Added Producer Grant program to help rural small businesses manufacture new products, expand local food systems and create jobs. We have not lost sight of the importance of a long-term Food, Farm and Jobs Bill – and I know folks across rural America are counting on Congress to get the job done as soon as possible. We stand ready to help in any way we can.

You whispered secrets to Momma that you would not dare tell anyone. Surely you haven’t forgotten? Right now you ‘ort’ to ease over, hug and kiss your Momma tell her you love her, and thank her for all she’s done for you. I’ll guarantee that you will feel a whole lot better as it will bring a tear to a glass eye. Otherwise, call her. The first thing she’ll say is, “I’ve been worried about you.” Mommas always worry. Tell her, “I love you, miss you but will see you real soon.” She’ll appreciate it a lot more than you’ll ever know. Neighbor, if your Momma has gone on to her great reward, pick up some flowers, get on your knees and place them on her grave. Say a little prayer, thanking her for all she did for bringing you up. Let her know that you will try to follow in her footsteps and raise your young’uns like she raised you. Even though the circle is broken, you will be with her one day. She’ll hear you and if you feel some rain---remember, there are holes in the floor of heaven. Don’t worry about getting your britches dirty, ’cause yo’ Momma never did. You will be a lot better person, just take the time to thank The Good Lord for a God-fearing Momma. Precious Southern Memories Linger Forever…Glory!

Continued from A4 procreate. It was made pleasurable so we would join together for our purpose – to recreate ourselves. Pleasure also helps maintain unity between man and woman. But, when we focus only on the pleasure of things, we will distort and miss the real purpose of things. We become slaves to our desires rather than free to enjoy the true pleasures of life, and that is the problem.

Retired from the Navy, Hardin writes regularly for The Leader.

worth of living expenses, kept in a liquid account that offers significant preservation of principal. • Avoid overly restrictive policies. You may want to avoid an “accident-only” policy or one with a limited benefit term (five and 10 years are common). These policies may be cheaper, but they don’t cover either a disabling illness or the entirety of your working life. • Consider adding appropriate “riders.” It will likely add to the cost of your policy, but a cost-ofliving rider will help protect your future benefits from the effects of inflation. You also might want to add a future income options (FIO) rider, which provides you with the ability to purchase additional coverage in the future with no further medical underwriting. These suggestions are general in nature. Your financial advisor can help you determine if you need a private disability insurance policy — and, if so, what type of policy is best suited for your needs. But don’t wait too long to take action in this area. You can’t predict the future, but you should still prepare for the unexpected.

Do you love your job?

As an injury lawyer, I help injured folks who have all kinds of jobs. Hearing about their different businesses is interesting. Every year, a survey tries to gauge just who has the Happiest Job in America. The survey evaluates the key factors like work-life balance, one’s relationship with their boss and co-workers, their work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, their daily tasks, David Peel and job control over the Peel Law Firm work that they do on a daily basis. In 2012, according to CareerBliss, some top picks were: Software Quality Assurance Engineer, Executive Chef, Property Manager, Teller, Warehouse Manager and Administrative Assistant. This year saw some changes, with the addition of Real Estate Agent, Senior Sales Representative, Construction Superintendent, Senior Application Developer, Network Engineer and Assistant Controller.

What about the other end of the list? Who has the Unhappiest Jobs in America? In 2012, it was Security Officer, Registered Nurse, Teacher, Sales Engineer, Product Manager, Program Manager, Marketing Manager, Director of Sales, Marketing Director, and Maintenance Supervisor. The Unhappiest Jobs in America in 2013 were Associate Attorney (even though average earnings were $111,000 per year), Customer Service Associate (getting paid little to be yelled at a lot), Clerk, and Pharmacy Tech. Sadly, Registered Nurse and Teacher were again in the bottom ten. We can look to another famous lawyer, no less than President Lincoln himself, for some sage advice: “People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.” – Abraham Lincoln “Whatever you are, be a good one.” – Abraham Lincoln Mr. Peel seeks justice for those injured in car accidents, work place incidents, medical malpractice, and nursing homes.

Tipton County and the Civil War: April 1863 By RUSSELL BAILEY Tipton County Historian Port Hudson was a small town on the east bank of the Mississippi River, 13 miles upriver from Baton Rouge.   “In the spring of 1863 a crescentic series of powerful fortifications, having a concentric field of fire, bordered the outside of the bend. Confederate gunners were aided at night by the illumination of the water afforded by setting fire to huge beacons and rafts of pine knots; and had the assistance of submarine torpedoes in the channel and of several armed vessels and rams which together made the attempt of an enemy's fleet to attack or run by very hazardous.”   At midnight on March 14, 1863, Admiral David Farragut led his Union

Elm Grove

Tula Starr We are about washed away here on Elm Grove Road. Monday, M.D. got out and edged the circle driveway in front of the house. We have never edged it before. He has it looking good, after he got the blower and blew all the grass, etc. away. The next little while it had stopped raining. So, he gets the lawn mower out and starts cutting the back yard. The grass was not too tall, so it was easy to cut. So he managed to get it cut before the next shower of rain came up. Tuesday morning:

Jamestown

DarSay Burton Greetings— Welcome to the month of May! Here in Memphis in all of the rain, the official opening for Memphis In May is going on. I think they should plan this event in either July or August when it’s not the rainy season; every year it rains! Jamestown Community Health Organization (JCHO) celebrated their annual fundraiser on May 4 in Millington. At the Baker Center. “It Takes Ten,” this year’s theme was, “Foods Around the World.” Countries represented were Africa, United States, China and Mexico, each one feature the food or foods of that country deliciously! President Rev. Pearl Andrews had each country present a short program, which was great. I was a special guest at the USA’s table. I did one of my poems, “The House Inside of Me,” and family friend Debra Bell of Memphis performed “You’re Next in Line For a Miracle.” It was beautifully done. We are members of North Star in Memphis, where the Rev. Steven Miller, Sr. formerly of Jamestown is senior pastor.

squadron up the Mississippi past the Confederate batteries.  Two of the ships succeeded in getting through; two more were damaged and had to drop back.   Historian E. B. Long recorded: “Confederate batteries were deadly accurate and for a time threatened to destroy the entire flotilla.”   The U. S. S. Mississippi was forced to run aground and abandoned.   Rebel defenders of Port Hudson cheered loudly as the ship went up in flames and drifted loose from the shore and back downriver at about 3 am, panicking the remainder of the Union fleet downriver at the threat of her magazine exploding. At 5:05 a.m. the Mississippi disappeared in a terrific explosion, seen in New Orleans nearly 80 miles downriver.

George Dewey (18371917) of the U. S. S. Mississippi noted this battle as the fiercest that he was ever in.   Dewey is best known for his victory in the Battle of Manila Bay during the Spanish American War and as Admiral of the Navy. Union infantry skirmished with Confederate defenders in the fortifications including approximately 60 soldiers from Tipton in the 51st Tennessee Infantry under Captain John Gracey Hall.   James Alexander Moore of Atoka later wrote: “We were there the night that the yankee gunboats together with the   U. S. Mississippi attempted to pass up the river by the Fort but was defeated and the flag ship was set a fire…this was a thrilling scene and broke

up the battle (campaign) for the time being.”   Confederate General Franklin Gardner and the Port Hudson garrison regarded the battle as a victory. They had sustained only 3 men killed and 22 wounded, compared to the 78 killed or missing and 35 wounded in the Union fleet. The approximately 300 men of the 51st Tennessee at Port Hudson were ordered to Tennessee.   James A. Moore credited Colonel Bartlett M. Browder with arranging the transfer.   D. C. Neal recorded on April 9, 1863, that “300 exchanged prisoners” of the 51st arrived at Tullahoma.   (Two thirds of the Regiment remained at Henderson Station while the smaller portion was surrendered at Fort Doneslon in 1862.)

On April 10th, Gen. Leonidas Polk conducted a review of the army.   On the 20th, both contingents of the 51st Tennessee were re-united in Gen. Marcus J. Wright’s Brigade, B. F. Cheatham’s Division. (Wright was the first military commander at Randolph and the fort thee named in his honor in 1861.) On April 23d, the Regiment was camped “5 miles outside of Shelbyville on the Fayetteville Pike at Holts’ Mill campground”.  Two days later Wright’s Brigade was inspected by Gen. Polk;

on April 28th the 51st was reorganized.   James Moore wrote: “We had a reorganization of the regiment.   Colonel (Bartlett) Browder resigned and John Chester was elected Colonel.   Capt. John Gracey Hall was elected Lieutenant Colonel and (Alphonso) Bruce Hill (of Brighton) was elected Captain.”

Evening & Weekend Appointments available The sun is so bright and pretty....what a beautiful day we are having. We are just praising the Lord for this sunny day. I am having a hard time setting here in front of my computer...... looking out my window. The outside is calling me. We went to Munford this morning and walked the mile in the park. The walking park is right by the place where our senior citizens meet. So we made it five laps around the track; it is a mile if you do five laps. So, we walked and then went in an ate a good lunch. We enjoyed visiting with all

the people there. We came home and M.D. jumps on his lawn mower and cuts the front yard. I just stopped and checked on him....he is now cutting the vacant lot next to us. It belongs to the Williams that live next to us. Mr. Williams has had surgery, so Mrs. Williams has gotten behind on the grass cutting. They just have 80 acres here....and I think they try to cut it all. Mrs. Williams gets on their big tractor and just flies around on the hills and around the lake. They are really good

A lovely baby shower was held on Saturday afternoon, May 4, at the Baker Center in Millington. It was given in honor to expectant mother April Frazier Camra. Her bundle of joy – it’s a girl! – is due in July. The proud grandmother is Ms. Velma Weaver Frazier. Ms. Michele Perry, a party planner from the AtokaMunford area, did an outstanding job of decorating in pink and white, using live pink roses as centerpieces. Salads, seasoned fruits and desserts were on the menu. Several family members and friends were on hand to help in this celebration. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Camra! This is all for this time. Remember this Sunday, May 12, is Mother’s Day! Do not forget mother, wife and grandmother; it is their big day! Think of them by showing your love! Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers everywhere! Remember also, “Nothing holds a candle to a mother’s love. Unless it’s a loving mother that’s holding the candle in order for her child to see the light!” Until next week …

Another 2.2 inches of rain Friday and cold! Hope we're not praying for rain in July and August! This week's Farm Report:  Corn is growing and we got a good bit of it fertilized before the rain. A tender full is in the barn waiting for dry conditions. Winter wheat is headed out and looks good. Doesn't like it’s feet wet this time of year though. But we never turn down a rain! I cooked our first burgers on the grill, along with some hot dogs, on Thursday. Wonderful! Just needed a "real" tomato to go with them. Had some left over and Elizabeth and Lyla came and shared them for supper that night. Second fun time I'd had with them last week - we went to Memphis shopping and to eat supper on Tuesday. Friday night was movie night, and Heather Keith, Cammy Evans, Pam Tankersley, Deborah Cates and I enjoyed supper in Atoka and the movie "42". Really, really good movie! Great night but maybe the weather will be better in June and more of our group can go. Didn't blame some of them for staying in, hunkering down under a blanket to watch the Grizzlies. Saturday we got up and headed for Kentucky to see my grandmother, Evelyn Porter Harrington, who turned 102 today! We had a great visit with her and she told us she is going to be Grand Marshal of their 4th of July Parade! She doesn't know why . . . I told her for 60 years folks up there had gone to their drive-in theater and eaten their hamburgers, plus she's 102, for goodness sake!

She said she's been  in two other parades: Tater Day, their sweet potato celebration, when she rode in one of my granddaddy's Model T's that they had in their antique car museum; and then there was the time when she was eight years old - the Armistice Day Parade in 1919 at the end of World War I! She said she wore a white dress with a red sash. Wish I could find a picture of her - I'm trying. We had a wonderful trip and I wish her Happy Birthday today (May 6)! The family of William "Buddy" Earwood have my sympathy at this time. His funeral was today. On our prayer list is Dale Laxton, who is in rehab now following a stroke; Judy Randolph, still having tests; Pat Armstrong, tests; Helen Moore; Sue Bringle; Bonnie Holbrook; Jeff Hanks; Larry Whaley I and Larry Whaley II; John Lazure; Sandra Melton; Phil Huffman; and so many more, along with all our servicemen and women. Happy Birthday this week goes to Crystal Edmonds on May 6th; to Mike Rogers, Wanda Townsend and Shawn Anderson, on the 7th; to Lydia Edmonds on the 9th; and to Teeghan Nolan, who will be one year old on the 10th! "Thanks for Reading" this week goes to Wayne "Cannonball" Beasley! Salute! This week's Farmer's Almanac Quote:  "A mother always has to think twice; once for herself and once for her child." - Sophia Loren, Italian actress born 1934. Happy Mothers Day! Until next week . . .

EDUCATION

New financial incentives

The Tennessee Department of Education today announced a new package of financial incentives to help recruit and retain the most effective teachers to work in the state’s lowest performing schools. Effective immediately, the department is offering funds to districts to pay $7,000 signing bonuses to every new teacher with a Level 5 rating on evaluation and, where available, value-added scores, who is brought into a Priority School for the 2013-14 school year. Signing bonuses will only apply to teachers who are new to the Priority School and are coming from a non-Priority School. By accepting the signing bonus, new teachers will commit to teach at least two years at the school. Additionally, the department will provide money to districts to pay retention bonuses for every existing Level 5 teacher who decides to stay at his or her Priority School for the 2013-14 school year. Priority Schools are the lowest-performing 5 percent of schools in Tennessee, in terms of academic achievement. Currently, those schools are located in Memphis, as well as Davidson, Hamilton, Hardeman, and Knox counties. “We know that teacher effectiveness is the most important school-based factor impacting student achievement,” said Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman. “Our goal is to get more of our most effective educators into our struggling schools. We value our teachers, and this is a great opportunity for us to show it.” Both the signing and retention bonuses will be funded with federal School Improvement funds. Every Priority School in the state is eligible for this program. Only teachers who have earned a 5 – the top score on Tennessee’s evaluation and value-added systems – will be eligible to receive the bonuses. The extra pay will be in addition to the teacher incentives that already exist at the local level. Eligible schools and their respective districts will continue to make teacher hiring decisions. “We believe that these bonuses will provide district and school leaders with greater leverage in this year’s recruiting and retention cycle,” said Mike Koprowski, who will oversee the program for the department's school improvement division.

These students from Covington High School were selected throughout the 2012-2013 school year as C-Spire's Academic All-Stars. A luncheon was held in their honor on Thursday, May 2, 2013 in Memphis.

Lady Cougars keep season alive Dyer County stops Brighton By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com One Tipton County softball team stayed alive in the District 13-AAA Tournament, while the other saw its season end. Brighton fell to Dyer County on Monday, ending its season. But Munford, the top seed in the tournament, defeated Dyer County on Tuesday in Jackson 9-0, guaranteeing at least a second place finish in the district and a spot in next week's region tournament. Munford (30-8) lost starting shortstop Sami Jo Schulz early in the year to an injury. This week starting third baseman

Jodie Duncan was also injured. Head coach Glenn Goulder said both players are out of the season. "I'm very pleased we've made it this far," Goulder said. "It's been an adventure." Both players were key parts of the offense and defense. "Defense is just as important," Goulder said. "We've got a third baseman and a shortstop who basically haven't played there all year." Nevertheless, Munford survived after losing a first round game to Hardin County. Depending on what happened last night after press time, Munford will be at home or travel for a region semifinal game on Monday. A win there

would put them in the region title game Wednesday and a sectional game next Friday. Tuesday's game was scoreless until Munford scored twice in the fourth inning, three times in the fifth and four times in the sixth. Alex Turner doubled in two runs and Sam Scott and Tara Comer each had two hits. Alex Stanford was 3 for 3 with two RBIs and Tori Ray drove in two. Tara Comer pitched a complete-game shutout, allowing seven hits and striking out four. In other action: • Munford fell behind 4-0 after two innings and trailed the rest of the way Monday in a 7-3 second round district tournament loss to Hardin County in Jackson. The Lady Cougars trimmed the defi-

cit to one run with two runs in the fifth, but Hardin County answered with three runs in the top of the sixth. Maddison Welch was 3 for 4 with a double and Sam Scott was 2 for 4 with two RBIs. Peyton Joyner had two hits for Munford. Scott started in the circle for Munford and took the loss. • Maddison Welch hit a two-run homer and Lindsey Owen doubled home a run in the bottom of the sixth last Thursday in a district-tourney opening 7-5 Munford win over Dyer County. Those three runs broke a 4-4 tie. Tori Ray also homered for Munford and Tara Comer was 2 for 3 with a double. Alex Stanford singled and drove in SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE A20

Munford downs BHS, advances By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Munford's record-breaking soccer season continued Tuesday night in the District 13-AAA semifinals at home. The Cougars got two goals from senior Zack Kurtzman, one in each half, to beat Brighton 2-0, ending the Cardinals' season and extending their own. Munford plays at Jackson North Side today at 6 p.m. in the district title game. A win there means they will host a region semifinal game on Tuesday. A loss means they will travel Tuesday, likely to Arlington. “It doesn't matter what the records are when Brighton and Munford play,” Munford coach Kyle Selby said. “It's going to be a battle. (Brighton head coach) Bubba (Chambers) has done a

great job for them in his first year.” "We came across a hot team," Chambers said. "We couldn't afford to make any mistakes and we made a couple of them." Kurtzman put Munford ahead 1-0 in the 25th minute when he scored on a rebound from five yards out. In the 43rd minute, Kurtzman beat Brighton keeper Austin Chapman and a defender to a 50-50 ball in the box to punch in Munford's second goal. Chapman was injured on the play and came out before returning to play midfield the rest of the game. Munford keeper Erik Furseth and Munford's defense kept Brighton's scoring opportunities to a minimum down the stretch to secure the region tournament bid. Brighton sophomore keeper Welton Degraffreed made several saves in the

second half to keep Brighton (5-6-3) within two goals. Munford is now 15-3-2. The previous high win total for a Munford soccer team was eight wins. “The boys wrote down their goals at the start of the year,” Selby said. “They wanted to win a district championship. We're not there yet … We have a program that can play with anybody. The boys have built it … There's only one shot at forever.” Chamber said he was very proud of how his team played Tuesday and all year. "I told them they have more heart and more desire than any team I've ever coached," Chambers said. "I've been preaching we're a family and nobody breaks that foundation. We stayed together ... This is step one of the building process."

Munford and Brighton both lost its District 13-AAA baseball tournament openers on Saturday at Hardin County High School. Those losses meant both teams had to make the long trip back to Savannah on Sunday and play a do-or-die game against one another. The Cougars rallied for seven runs in the final two frames of a wild eight-inning game and kept their season alive with an 11-7 win. Brighton, the third seed in the fiveteam tournament, saw its season end at 15-18. Both teams had a chance to win the game in the seventh. The Cardinals had fourth-seeded Munford on the ropes, leading 6-4 heading into the top of the seventh. But Munford's Kyle Hindman came up with a one-out double to drive home the tying runs. Moments later, Hindman scored on a balk to give the Cougars a 7-6 lead. In the bottom of the frame, Brighton's first two batters struck out before Kolton Childress walked and Caleb Armour reached on an error. Webb followed with a hit to left. Childress scored the tying run but Armour was thrown out at home and the game went into the eighth. Munford's offense exploded in the final inning. Brandon Young got the rally started with a single before Hunter Barber hit a two-run homer and Jase Hutchison followed with a solo shot to put the Cougars ahead to stay. Josh Hibbard pitched the final three innings for Munford to earn the win. Webb took the loss for Brighton. Nathan Newman started for the Cardinals and pitched six and a third innings. Hibbard hit a three-run homer for Munford in the top of the first inning SEE BASEBALL, PAGE A21

Haywood ends Chargers' season By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com The Covington Chargers baseball season came to an abrupt and unexpected end in the District 13-AA quarterfinals on Monday night with a surprising 4-3 home loss to the Haywood Tomcats. CHS (21-12) had defeated Haywood twice last week by identical 10-0, run-rule-shortened games. The Chargers led 3-2 until the top of the sixth when Haywood scored twice to take the lead. The potential tying run was thrown out at home in the bottom of the sixth. Bradyn McClain was 2 for 2 for Covington with a double and an RBI and Dalton Carlton added a double. Carlos Williams and Clayton Click each singled for Covington.

Jake Durham went the distance for Covington. He struck out eight and walked just one. All of Haywood's runs were unearned. The opening round game against South Gibson appeared to serve notice that the Chargers were ready for battle in the district and beyond. Brad Walker remained perfect at 7-0, tossing a four-hitter while striking out five and walking three. Two hits and two walks and a hit batsmen aided a 2-0 South Gibson lead in the first. Walker then slammed the door, allowing only four Hornet batters to reach base in the last five innings. Covington bounced back with three in the bottom of the frame and never looked back. Covington’s offense was exploSEE CHS, PAGE A21

COMMENTARY

Christ is King. He is Lord.

By ZACH COOK Special to The Leader Fear of rejection; it's what often keeps me from evangelizing. This morning I read in 1 Samuel 8:7, how Samuel felt rejected because the Israelites didn't want to do things God's way, but wanted a king like the people around them. God said to Samuel, "Do everything they say to you," the LORD replied, "for it is me they are rejecting, not you. They don't want me to be their king any longer." When I share the gospel and get made fun of, or worse, it is not me they are rejecting, but God. Isn't this what all of eternity boils down to - acceptance or rejection of Christ as King? Do we treat Christ as King, ruling and reigning over our lives or do we just give him lip service by calling Him Lord, or do we choose to reject Him as King all together? In Matthew 7:21-23 Jesus says, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform

THE COOK FAMILY

many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!" He said "only the one who does the will of the Father" will enter the kingdom of heaven. What is the will of the Father? That we would trust in Christ alone for salvation by grace through faith in His atoning work on the cross on our behalf. By trusting in Christ alone, we won't perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16) to glorify God. By surrendering to The Holy Spirit who lives within true believers; from the outflow thanksgiving for His grace gift, we are able to love God supremely, love people as ourselves, share the way of salvation through Jesus, and make disciples who will point others to Him. All of that brings glory to God's Name.

Jesus said in Matthew 10:28, "Don't be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell." Proverbs 29:25 says, "The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is safe." When Jesus is in His proper place in our hearts as King, we shouldn't be afraid of sharing the truth of the gospel because we are servants of His Kingdom, not the kingdom of this world. Lord, help me to not be ashamed of you or fearful of man, but give me strength to be a bold and loving witness for You to make Your Name famous to all nations. May my generation and their children rise up and be all You've called us to be in the dark days in which we live. May the world know You truly are our King. May Your Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. One day soon and very soon, "at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Phil. 2:10-11

Do we really get it? By RICK HUFFMAN Gilt Edge Church of Christ When I first started working at the savings and loan, I visited a civic club on several occasions of which an older gentleman was a member. This gentleman was the patriarch of one of the most influential business and political families in the state. As a businessman, he had few peers. His success, however, had not gone to his head. This gentleman always insisted on being the last one in the buffet line to be served. It was no arguing with him. He was going to be last, not next to last but last. He always put others first. I was raised in a family that taught me to use good manners and to always respect my elders. This gentleman was old enough to be my grandfather so it was especially difficult for me not to defer to him. This gentleman taught me a great lesson about humility. He had the heart of a servant. This man got it. Even though he enjoyed success that most of us only dream of, he did not lose sight of who he was. He appreciated his fellow man and remembered his roots. Php 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Rom. 12: 10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in

honour preferring one another; I Co 10: 24 Let no man seek his own, but [each] his neighbor's [good]. (ASV) Everyone wants to be first these days. Everyone wants to be served. Everyone wants someone to wait on them. Everyone wants to be in the limelight, have all the attention and all the praise. Everyone wants to be number one, the greatest, the most powerful, the most talented, the best looking, the smartest, etc. Everyone thinks that the greatest is the one being served. We just do not get it. On the night Jesus was betrayed, he performed one of the lowliest tasks of all, washing the disciples’ feet. The roads were dusty and the common shoe of the day was the sandal. The feet would become especially dirty. The host would typically have his lowest servant wash the feet of his guests as they arrived. As they convened for the last supper, none of the disciples would stoop to wash the others’ feet or even the feet of Jesus. After all, they were bickering over who would be the greatest in the kingdom and sit on His right hand and His left hand. Mark 9: 33 And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way? 34 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disput-

ed among themselves, who should be the greatest. 35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all. Although this event in Capernaum preceded the last supper, Jesus’s words went pretty much unheeded. The disciples just did not get it. Jesus gave His disciples ample opportunity at the last supper to show their greatness by their service to one another and to Him. The feet were typically washed as the guests arrived. Joh 13:2 And supper being ended… 4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. 5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. He put them to shame for their pride and feelings of self- importance and superiority over one another. Peter was not comfortable at all about the situation. However his inaction (and that of his peers) is what led to the situation. John 13: 6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? 7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. 8 Peter saith unto him, Thou

shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Jesus then explained why He had done what He did. Jesus was not legislating a specific practice (for we typically do not have dusty roads and wear sandals and have a need for our feet to be washed today) but teaching us a principleserve one another. John 13; 12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? 13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. If the Son of God, the king of the Jews, the prince of peace served his disciples, should we not serve one another? Jesus summed it up this way. Mr 10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. 45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Do we understand the Lord’s mission? Do we understand our missionwhat we are here to do? (Mat. 25:31-46) Do we really get it?

Is my drinking water safe? Yes, our water meets all of EPA’s health standards. We have conducted numerous tests for over 80 contaminants that may be in drinking water. As you’ll see in the following chart, we only detected seven of these contaminants. We found all of these contaminants at safe levels. What is the source of my water? Your water, which is ground water, comes from the confined tertiary sand aquifer. Our goal is to protect our water from contaminants and we are working with the State to determine the vulnerability of our water source to potential contamination. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) has prepared a Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP) Report for the untreated water sources serving water to this water system. The SWAP Report assesses the susceptibility of untreated water sources to potential contamination. To ensure safe drinking water, all public water systems treat and routinely test their water. Water sources have been rated as reasonably susceptible, moderately susceptible or slightly susceptible based on geologic factors and human activities in the vicinity of the water source. The Munford Water System sources rated as reasonably susceptible to potential contamination. An explanation of Tennessee’s Source Water Assessment Program, the Source Water Assessment summaries, susceptibility scorings and the overall TDEC report to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can be viewed online at www.state.tn.us/environment/dws/dwassess.shtml or you may contact the Water System to obtain copies of specific assessments. A wellhead protection plan is available for your review by contacting Lynn Hughey at the Munford Water System between 7:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. weekdays. Why are there contaminants in my water? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Enviromental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800426-4791) Este informe contiene información muy importante. Tradúscalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien. For more information about your drinking water, please call Mark Walker at 901-837-5974. How can I get involved? Our Water Board meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Munford Municipal Building located at 69 College St. Please feel free to participate in these meetings. Is our water system meeting other rules that govern our operations? The State and EPA require us to test and report on our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. We have met all of these requirements. Results of unregulated contaminant analysis are available upon request. We want you to know that we pay attention to all the rules. Other Information The sources of drinking water (both tap and bottled water) include rivers,

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

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

Iron: Iron occurs naturally in our raw water and occasionally accumulates in the distribution system. Iron shows up as “red” or “rusty” water at your tap. Although you do not want to drink water that is not clear, iron is not considered to be a hazard to your health. We test for iron daily and it is usually around 0.04 ppm. The aesthetic limit for iron is 0.3 ppm. 9may2w

CHS beats South Gibson, avoids elmination By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com Facing elimination, the Lady Chargers took out South Gibson on Tuesday with a 5-1 decision. Gabby Glenn improved to 19-5 with a three-hitter. She walked four and struck out nine. Shelby Bolding and Maddie Lane (two RBIs) led the way on offense with a pair of hits each. CHS was scheduled for potentially

two elimination games past press time on Wednesday night. The Lady Chargers would have to defeat Dyersburg and then Milan, all for a shot at Westview and the automatic regional berth. Covington, 27-6 and seeded second in the District 13-AA tournament, held serve with a home field 8-4 win over South Gibson last Thursday. Gabby Glenn recorded her 18th victory of the season. She allowed seven hits while walking and striking out three.

She helped herself at the plate with a single and an RBI double. Lyndsey Ashburn had a pair of RBIs, as did the freshman Neely Glenn. Martin Westview, the 13-AA North number seed, stood in the way Monday night. “They are very good and we have to play our best to win,” Lawler said prior to the game. She was right as the Westview Chargers came away with a 2-0 win sending CHS to the loser’s bracket

and the tougher route to advance. Only the top two teams in the 10team district move on. Gabby Glenn took the loss to fall to 18-5. CHS had just two hits against 12 strikeouts. “Their senior pitcher, a University of Kentucky signee, is very talented,” said Lawler.

sive, producing 12 runs on 10 hits. Carlos Williams was a one-man highlight reel. He was 4 for 5 at the plate with 4 RBIs. For good measure, Williams stole two bases, giving him 182 for his career, eclipsing Coalfield’s Michael Paul Gilbert’s alltime state stolen base record and simultaneously adding to his own state record of 119 consecutive steals. T.A. Watson chipped in two hits and McClain had a pair of RBI. Rain forced a Sunday game against the Milan Bulldogs and CHS’s senior nemesis Caleb Powell. The Chargers dropped a 4-2 decision and headed to the loser’s bracket. Covington took a 2-0 lead early but could not maintain it. Tommy Beasley (6-3) took the loss.

to give the Cougars a 3-0 lead. Barber hit a solo homer in the third inning to put the Cougars ahead 4-3. Brighton scored three times in the fourth to reclaim the lead. Bentley Jones singled home the first run and Colton Hathcock doubled home the other two. Ryan Bargery led Munford's offense, going 4 for 5. Munford's season came to an end on Tuesday in a 7-5 loss to Jackson North Side in Savannah. North Side led 6-1 early. Munford rallied to pull within a run in the fifth inning, but could get no closer. Tommy Smith led Munford's offense, going 3 for 3 with three doubles. Young drove in two runs with a single and double and Bouler, Bargery and J.C. Trobaugh each had two hits. The Cougars finished the season at 20-16. In other action: • Hathcock pitched an excellent game for Brighton on Saturday in the tourney opener against second-seeded Hardin County, but the Cardinals came out on the wrong end of a 2-1 game. Bentley Jones doubled and scored on an error in the top of the sixth inning to put Brighton ahead 1-0. But the Tigers answered with two runs in the bottom of the frame to pull out the win. Hathcock pitched all six innings, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out three. Newman, Hatcock and Ladarius Williams each singled for Brighton.

Ramsey places at prestigious Ironman wrestling event By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Brighton High School junior Essex Ramsey, a two-time state qualifier and top-16 placer at this year’s high school state championship, placed at the Ironman Tournament held April 27 at Blackman High School in Murfreesboro, Tenn. Ramsey went 5-4 on the day, placing second in freestyle and third in the Greco-Roman tournaments. The Ironman is three separate tournaments in one: folksytle (high school rules), freestyle and Greco-Roman (Olympic rules) all in one day. “He started a little slow” said Coach

Larrick Johnson of Tipton County Wrestling, "and did not place in the folkstyle tournament. This is very tough event. Every wrestler (eight total) in his weight class (182) were state qualifers in high school”. The field included the state champion at 170 pounds this year in Division I and John Hagey, who placed second in Division II. Ramsey had wins over Jevon Brown of Blaze Wrestling Club, Dustin Wilson of Team Venom and Josh Spangler of 423 Elite. Ramsey's next tournament will be Saturday at the Tennessee FreestyleGreco-Roman state championships at Summit High School in Spring Hill, Tenn.

Continued from A12 two runs. Comer picked up the win in relief of Stanford, striking out five over four innings. • Hardin County beat Brighton 8-1 last Thursday in Jackson in the district tournament opener. A single by Hadley Wilkins represented Brighton's only hit in the game. Seeley Layne took the loss. Hardin County took control with four runs in the first inning and two more in the second. • Munford won at Brighton 8-1 on May 1 in the regular season finale, clinching the District 13-AAA regular season title. Ray doubled, homered and drove in four runs to lead Munford, which scored four runs in the top of the first inning. Jodie Duncan, Comer and Alex Stanford each had two hits for Munford. Comer struck out four and allowed just three hits over seven innings to earn the win. Lulu Smith, Hadley Wilkins and Morgan Shaver each singled for Brighton. Layne took the loss for Brighton.
