Atoka proposes $7M budget Public safety, quality of life priorities for town leaders By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Police, fire and parks will be top priorities for the Town of Atoka in the coming budget year, town administrator Brian Koral announced Tuesday. The proposed budget for the 2015 fiscal year includes nearly $700,00 in planned

capital purchases, the largest being related to the improvement of the town's fire service and the delivery of a new fire engine. The budget also provides for the hiring of new firefighters and two new full-time police officers in addition to a parks and recreation coordinator. "As the community contin-

ues to grow, the expectations of our citizens to provide quality municipal services has necessitated the new positions proposed in this budget," Koral said. "Staffing levels in all departments will require ongoing review from staff and the board as we move forward in delivering the services that our residents want and expect." The fire and police department budgets account for 28.4 and 30.6 percent of the budget, respectively. The town has allocated $1.37

million for the fire department alone – a significant increase over the $450,000 spent in FY2014 – funded, in part, by the increase in sales tax collections as implemented last year in both Munford and Atoka. Of that, $725,000 is earmarked for travel, meetings, training and education and $530,000 listed under capital outlay. The police department's $1.4 million budget includes $826,297 in salaries – the projected year-end for FY2014 is $745,320.

Additionally, all municipal employees should see a three percent raise across the board and, after the November elections, aldermen and members of the planning commission will see their compensation per meeting double to $200 and $100 per meeting, respectively. Total expenditures for FY2015 are projected to be $7 million, Koral reported. Revenues While the fire tax has generated nearly $240,000 for SEE MAYOR, PAGE A3

Covington arrests four after juvenile shot By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Four people have been arrested in the shooting of a 14-year-old this weekend, Covington police said. Tevin Adams, Tony Adams, Henry Clark and Jodeci Young, all of Covington, have been charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment after the teenager suffered a gunshot to his lower leg. Witnesses told police several people fled the scene, near Rose and Barlow streets, on foot. Police chief Buddy Lewis said officers began

canvassing the area. The four suspects were arrested by the next day. “The information we received from the witnesses was extremely helpful in assisting our officers in locating the suspects,” Lewis said. “That information, combined with the work of the Covington police officers is the reason why we were able to apprehend these suspects so quickly.” Increasing patrols Lewis also announced Wednesday an increase in patrols in the city to help counter criminal activity.

These operations will include traffic saturations where we have had reckless driving and speeding complaints, particularly in neighborhoods where children are playing, zero tolerance saturations, warrant saturations and illegal drug saturations."

Hargett encourages reading program By TRE HARGETT Tennessee Secretary of State A Slide Children Need to Avoid This Summer Summer vacation for Tennessee's students is upon us! It’s a time when children can enjoy being outdoors, playing video games or doing any of the other fun things they like to do. It’s also a time when they often forget a significant portion of what they learned in school the year before. That’s right. Research has shown that, on average, students lose the equivalent of one month of instruction time from the academic year preceding summer break. For some students, the loss may be even greater – in some cases, up to three months. This phenomenon is sometimes referred to by educators as “the summer slide” or “summer set back.” And its effects are cumulative and long lasting. Each year, students fall further and further behind on the knowledge base they should be developing as they progress through school. Speaking as a parent, this “two steps forward, one step back” approach to education isn’t what I want for my children – and I think most other parents would agree. Fortunately, there is a way to combat summer slide. Studies have shown that children who keep their minds engaged by reading during the summer months are better prepared when school resumes in the fall. And summer reading programs are available at about 280 public libraries across Tennessee. These programs vary from library to library. Most offer children opportunities to receive prizes in exchange for reading certain numbers of books. Some also feature story hours, creative arts, performances, science experiments, cooking classes and other special events. Some libraries have summer reading programs geared towards teenagers and adults as well as younger children. These summer reading programs offer participants free entertainment in safe and climate-controlled (read: air conditioned) environments. They provide access to new books and e-books that participants might not be able to find or afford from other sources. They provide opportunities for shared community experiences. Summer reading programs are promoted across the United States by the National Collaborative Summer Learning Program, which prepares children for success through the development of language skills and

Berkley has posted the $100,000 bond in the Arkansas case and has been living in Covington, where he was arrested this week. He is set to be arraigned in Ripley Thursday morning. At press time, he was still in custody. Bond has been set at $150,000. District Attorney General Mike Dunavant said there are not currently any charges pending against Mr. Berkeley in Tipton County. Berkley was also formerly employed with Maley-Yarbrough Funeral Home and once owned a coffee shop on the square in Covington. He has officiated several weddings and funerals in Tipton County.

Summer reading program begins at Tipton County library The summer reading program begins at Tipton County Public Library on June 1 and concludes on July 31. Prizes are given to readers based on number of books, magazines or newspapers read or listened to during the summer months. There are adult, youth and children’s programs, including movies, book clubs and activities with a theme of “Fizz, Boom Read” for children ages 11 and under, “Spark a Reaction” for teens ages 12 to 17 and “Literary Elements” for adults. The Tipton County library is located at 300 W. Church Avenue in Covington. For more information, call 901-476-8289. Prizes will be awarded weekly and the grand prize is an Amazon Kindle. integrates different literacy activities to motivate young adults to read and discuss books. Each year, there is a different theme for summer reading – and this year’s general theme is science. While the program isn’t limited to sciencerelated books, that will be an area of emphasis of the programs at many of the participating libraries. I am proud that, through the Tennessee State Library and Archives and the Tennessee Regional Library System, my office is able to promote summer reading in three different ways: •We provide financial support by purchasing program manuals and summer reading materials for libraries throughout the state. •We provide education in the form of online resource pages, webinars, training sessions and a statewide summer reading conference to give librarians opportunities to share programming ideas, theme resources, information about national trends and more. •We also collect data about summer reading programs across the state to assist libraries in sharing resources and identifying trends that can be helpful to them in the future. The bottom line is that summer reading programs are fun, free and they have educational benefits. That’s a winning combination. So I encourage you to contact your local library and find out about its summer reading program. It’s time well spent. Tre Hargett is Tennessee’s Secretary of State.

Memories flooding back with scented reminders It’s funny how your senses can bring back memories. Last night, I had my hair cut. After the shampoo, while my hair was still wet, I was almost like a cat with catnip. “What is that? That scent….I know it! What is it?” I asked repeatedly as I darted my nose in and out to catch the fragrance. It finally occurred to me: I had used that brand of conditioner when I was 24 and living in LA. Because I hadn’t used it since, it was now mysterious, yet familiar. When I placed it, there was a sense of happiness and a reminder of old friends, especially my roommates Jeanine and Andrea. In New Orleans last summer, a similar thing happened: I had a facial at the Aveda Institute and as soon as the products were near SOUTHERN FRANCE my skin, the familiar scents on FRANCE GASQUET my face, I almost jolted out of the chair. I had used those products when I was 19, the first time I had lived in LA. At 19, I was out there to model, when my skin started to break out horribly. I had gone to a dermatologist practically my entire life, but mainly for little acne, nothing like this. My skin looked like sandpaper. I went to a dermatologist in L.A. who strongly recommended a new product on the market, but I had to be under his care for three months. There was not time for that. I called my doctor in Memphis, and within two weeks had moved back and started the new protocol. Yes, it had been that serious. I was full of angst. Out to pursue a dream, but there was no way it was going to happen right then. I remembered all that during a facial simply because of four fragrances layered on my skin. But the sense of angst I first felt this time was followed by a calm; that now here I am, decades older, happy and well-situated in my life. Scent has always been a strong sense for me; at my grandmother’s house, it was the cool marble of the bathroom mixed with Dove bars of soap, cloves, and the grass wallpaper. When I get migraines, light doesn’t bother me, but fragrance does. At my father’s in April, honeysuckle was everywhere. Sweet, humid nights of my 10-year-old childhood came back to me, when I would watch the next-door-neighbor teenage boy walk across the street to visit the girl-next-door. They would sit on a swing in the girl’s yard and talk and talk and I would watch from my upstairs bedroom window until I became bored. The tall light blue wall was covered with honeysuckle so sweet that is hard to explain to someone who has not experienced it. Soon peaches will be here. Oh, I know some are already ripe, but not the peaches I like. A few years back, I was visiting the farmers’ market here in Covington and I bought some peaches for cobbler. When I went home and cut one up, I couldn’t believe it- they tasted like the peaches from my grandfather’s cousin John M’s orchard. The next Saturday, I returned to the market and asked about the peaches. As it turns out, the land where the peaches were grown was adjacent to the late John M’s farm. It was the clay in the soil that made the taste different from others. As summer begins, may your days be filled with fragrances of this season: tanning lotion, sunscreen, fruits and vegetables just grown and still warm from the sun, lemonade, just mowed grass.

Now country folks know the Duroc wanted an ear of yellow corn, as she blinked at me with those deer in the headlight, sad chartreuse eyes, ready to bawl like a white face bull. With the sow following me like a dog chases a coon, I shuffled to the corn crib and quickly shucked a couple of fine ears, politely rolling the silk off the kernels. Since Dennis and this Duroc hadn’t been officially introduced, he circled around the stable keeping both eyes on her in case she wanted to dance the Rosemark Hog Trot and become loving friends immediately. Similar to circling that Custer should have done at ‘Big Little Horn’ and maybe ‘Sitting Steer’ wouldn’t have made jerky out of a jerk. You never know when a city boy goes to the country.

OUR VIEW

Atoka does open government right Though we often hate to admit it, because doing so conjures up feelings of irrelevancy and reminds us of the changing dynamics in our industry, most people don’t care about what’s going on around them. They’re busy. They’re tired. They’re … doing 173 other things, like replaying the (often hilarious, but still timewasting) latest viral videos on the Internet and could not care less about what their elected officials are up to. That’s where we come in. We’re at as many government meetings as we can possibly attend because it’s our duty as watchdogs to find out where your tax dollars

are being spent and make sure everyone’s following the rules. We sit in hours-long meetings each and every week, following along with the agenda, taking notes, recording quotes, conducting post-meeting interviews and filing stories based on the information shared in said meetings. Some groups make this difficult for us – by not providing us with agendas, for instance – while others make our jobs easier by being as open as they can be. Atoka is one of those cities. In fact, of everyone – from municipalities, to the school board and county commission – Atoka is the most open, most efficient, most con-

sistent, most organized of all. Transparency has been a priority for city leaders and we think they’re providing the rest of the county with a great example. Open government is important because it provides citizens with the tools needed to hold their leaders accountable. Why should you care, though? Because it means they either have nothing to hide or they’re hiding it in plain sight. If you live in Atoka, you should care that the agenda is posted online in advance of the meetings. Doing so provides you with tools for engaging with your elected of-

ficials and participating in the process. If you live in Atoka, you should care that the budget proposals are posted online prior to being formally proposed to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen because it means you can review it and, if you have questions, you can attend the meeting and ask them. If you live in Atoka, you should care that not only are agendas and budget proposals posted on the town’s website, but that your town administrator posts the entire meeting packet to the site, so you have every detail the aldermen have before a meeting, and you should care that that the budget proposal includes a very detailed SEE VIEW, PAGE A5

Continued from A4 summary, colorful graphs, charts, the line item details and even the capital replacement plan. Why should you care? Because it means your city officials, the stewards of your tax dollars, are on top of things and they’re not keeping things from you. This is not to say other municipalities and government bodies are keeping things from their constituents, however having the information a few keystrokes

away certain helps keep citizens in the loop. If you don’t live in Atoka, you might encourage your city and county leaders to be as open, organized and consistent as they are (Brian Koral likely already has a Powerpoint, complete with charts and graphs, on the process). Perhaps that isn’t as important to you as “Linda, Linda, Listen!” or the bride whose newborn rode down the aisle on her wedding

In Memoriam In Loving Memory of Doug Cullum On April 3, 1967, we were blessed with a beautiful gift. It was not wrapped in a box with a pretty ribbon on top. Enclosed was no guarantee or special care instruction sheet. Through many days and nights of holding and admiring this precious gift, our heart and soul has grown with light and love. In the early hours of May 6, 2014, we were asked to return our gift to the Original owner and Creator. Being of a selfish and stubborn nature, we were very reluctant to comply with this request. During all of the arguments of this transaction, we received the guarantee that was missing when we first received our gift. Our hearts filled with happiness and great joy when we discovered we could keep the main contents, and only return the physical parts. With great care and pride, we wrapped and prepared the gift for return. With the love, prayers, and support of many, many friends and loved ones, we were able to make the final exchange with love, gratitude, and a smile. We want you to know that you helped discover the true definition of love, life, and God’s miracles. We will forever be grateful to each of you and we know that Doug’s smile will forever be shining in hearts because of you. God Bless and Many Thanks, The Cullum Family

Anchor for my soul By EMILY PEYTON COOK Special to The Leader When I was growing up, I spent my summers on the lake. My grandparents had a pontoon, bass boat, sea doo, and later in my teen years, a ski boat. One thing I remember that we always had on the boat was our anchor. It was heavy (I couldn't pick it up and I really didn't want it to fall on my foot or stump my toe) and it was necessary (if you didn't want the boat drifting away to the snake infested bank or leaving you swimming in the lake without anything to return to). One year on vacation our brand new anchor was thrown out of the boat, but wasn't attached to anything. There was no hope of catching the falling nautical weight. This story came back to me as the Lord kept bringing "anchor" to my mind. I heard a sermon and attended a funeral that featured the verse from Hebrews 6: "So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Jesus has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Priest in the order of Melchizedek." Hebrews 6:18-20 After seeing and hearing this

passage of scripture twice, it seemed like every time I turned on my radio, there would be a song about an anchor for my soul. I knew the Lord was trying to tell me something. An anchor is a heavy device that is attached to a boat or ship by a rope or chain and that is thrown into the water to hold the boat or ship in place. As the passengers on our boat found out, an anchor unattached to a rope is just a sinking weight. It leaves the floating vessel hopeless and drifting and there is really no way man can take hold of a sinking anchor without a rope. But, if an anchor is attached to a rope and tied securely to the boat, the boat will be steadfast and immovable even if the waves rise or the storm rages. If we are the boat and hope is the anchor, who is the rope that is holding onto us? Jesus. He attached us to the strong and trustworthy anchor of hope upon salvation. I would argue that this is another redemptive "scarlet rope" shown in scripture. Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." If we have faith in Christ, we have confidence that the anchor holds and the assurance of eternal life with Him. I dream about what it will be like when we don't need to hope any more. What a day that will be when The Captain, our Promise Maker and Promise Keeper, takes up the anchor and yells "Anchors Aweigh!" as we set

Three Tipton County players are major contributors By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com It's nothing new that three Tipton County players made major contributions to the Southwest Tennessee Community College softball team this past season. Alex Turner, Tara Comer and Alex Stanford, all of whom graduated from Munford High School in 2013, were regulars for the Lady Saluqis in 2014. Turner led the team in every offensive category and was named first team All-Tennessee Community College Athletic Conference. Comer pitched, played several positions and hit over .300, while Stanford played outfield and was a major offensive contributor. Keith Gentry has been the Lady Saluqi coach for 11 years and can often be seen scouting players at Munford and Brighton high school games. He has coached 16 different players from Tipton County at Southwest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They start playing when they're five years hold here,â&#x20AC;? Gentry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the time they get to high school, they have played a lot of games against good competition, and they have had good coaching.â&#x20AC;? Turner had one of the best seasons ever for a Lady Saluqi. She led the team in 10 offensive categories: batting average (.401), runs (49), hits (73), doubles (18), home runs (15), total bases (138), RBIs (36), slugging percentage (.758), walks (27) and onbase percentage (.481). Her hit and total base stats were one short of the team record. Her 15 home runs were two short of the team record, which was set by Brighton High School graduated Amber Hayes in 2009. Despite her power, Gentry decided Turner would serve the team

best as a leadoff hitter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The home runs just came,â&#x20AC;? said Gentry, who noted that Turner only hit four as a senior at Munford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can't say I was expecting 15, but I knew she had power.â&#x20AC;? Turner returns next year and Gentry believes four-year schools will be lining up to secure her services in 2016. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The numbers she put up this year, no player we've had has approached that,â&#x20AC;? Gentry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was our best player for sure. She did a great job in centerfield too. I can't say enough about her. I wish we had a whole team like her. She's as humble as she can be. She just goes about her business out there â&#x20AC;Ś She'll get offers. If fouryear schools don't look at here, they're missing out. She's a good player and a good person.â&#x20AC;? Comer was recruited primarily as a pitcher out of high school. While she did put up some respectable numbers in the circle (4.49 ERA and 46 strikeouts in 78 innings), she ended up being most valuable as a hitter and infielder. Because of injuries and other reasons, Comer ended up playing a lot of third base and second base, positions she never played at Munford. She performed well on the infield while hitting .307 with three homers, four doubles and 31 RBIs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tara was a valuable member of the team,â&#x20AC;? Gentry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She ended up being more of a utility

player than either one of us thought.â&#x20AC;? Two of Southwest's pitchers were sophomores this year, so Comer figures to see more time pitching in 2015. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She had a pretty solid year,â&#x20AC;? Gentry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I'll be counting on her even more next year as far as pitching goes.â&#x20AC;? Stanford, who was primarily a pitcher and first baseman during her career at Munford, ended up playing outfield at Southwest. She hit .261 with five doubles, one homer and 21 RBIs. Stanford struck out just 10 times in 153 at-bats, the fewest on the team. In her first at-bat of the season she got a pinch hit and Gentry quickly realized he had a reliable bat he could put into the lineup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She ended up doing a really good job in right,â&#x20AC;? Gentry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didn't have to worry about right field anymore. She made the routine plays, which is what we needed. She ended up being one of our better hitters.â&#x20AC;? Stanford has decided not to play softball next year and concentrate on her education, but she was another in a long line of Tipton County high school graduates who excelled at Southwest. Gentry didn't sign any Tipton County players in the 2014 class, but he's got his eye on several in the class of 2015. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Players from here,â&#x20AC;? Gentry said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just know how to play the game.â&#x20AC;?

THE CIVIL WAR IN TIPTON COUNTY

Tipton’s infantry soldiers at Chattanooga By RUSSELL BAILEY Tipton County Historian (Continued from last week) The 4th Tennessee was on picket duty during Sept. 28-29, 1863. The men of the 19th Tennessee, from the eastern part of the state, relieved the men of the 4th that evening. On Oct. 3, the 4th Tennessee moved a half-mile to the east. That same day, the rank and file learned that Gen. Braxton Bragg had relieved their corps commander, Gen. Leonidas Polk, “for not attacking at dawn on Sept. 20th at Chickamauga.” Division Commander Gen. Ben. F. Cheatham was acting corps commander; Brig. Gen. John K. Jackson assumed command of Cheatham’s division. At least one soldier in the 4th Tennessee was displeased with this action: “The soldiers of our own old corps was very sorry to lose our brave and good bishop general (L. Polk) and they would prefer him to any corps commander that the president could give us…he was beloved and by all combined all the qualities of the soldier, the gentleman and Christian…the men are proud of…Cheatham who now commands the corps (but) they would not like to lose him as their division commander.” For little over two years, most all of Tipton’s sol-

diers had been in camp and battle with Episcopal Bishop and General Leonidas Polk for various lengths of service. Some recalled that he had preached briefly at Randolph and Ravenscroft before the war. Gen. Polk’s farewell address was published in pamplet and in the newspapers. Without going into detail about his conflict with Bragg, Polk expressed to his former command his affection and appealed to them to continue their brave and patriotic service. His soldiers read the address with deep interest and emotion. The missive read in part: “I cannot, part, even temporarily, with the gallant officers and soldiers of my old corps, without the deepest feeling of regret and a heartfelt expression of my gratitude for the courage, conduct and devotion they have always manifested while under my command. “Belmont, Shiloh, Perryville, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, all attest on your part the very highest soldierly qualities and are crowded with precious memories. “Contending with a numerous, well appointed and merciless enemy, for all that man holds dear you have borne unexampled privations, fought with undaunted bravery, and ever yielded a ready and cheerful obedience to your officers. “Soldiers who struggle in such a cause and with

It's a partly cloudy, extremely humid Monday. Clint said they got a hurricane during last night west of town, but we may have gotten a sprinkle! This week's farm report: we got a total nine-tenths inch of rain last week, and as I just said, it's so humid! The wheat is more yellow than last week and getting ready to cut. Corn will be covering the middle of the rows this week and beans look good. I am thankful for the rain so far and pray it continues through August. We continue to spray and put down fertilizer but will be through soon. We turned on the irrigation for a round last Monday and I enjoyed watching it maybe it will be rain insurance! Lyla spent the day with us yesterday and she counted to 20 for me. I taught her to go on to 30! We always make something and it was chocolate chip cookies yesterday, even though they were slice-and-bake. I love having her here and can't believe she's four already. Members of the Covington Church of Christ started VBS Sunday night with more than 190 people attending. I am praying for more people to come join us the next three nights. The “Life of Paul” is the theme and we are all having fun! The rodeo was postponed due to mud and will be rescheduled. The ladies dinner and movie night is this Friday, the 6th. The summer series starts next Wednesday, the 11th. John Evans, Ann Chapman, Shelley Dickey, Percaya Langston, Bonnie Holbrook, Dale Laxton, John Henderson, Debbie Deen, Tim Sallee, Hadley Mason and so many more continue on our prayer list, along with all servicemen and women. I'm so happy to report that Keith McCalla is cancer-free! Our prayers have been answered! He still has a couple more things to go through, so he continues on the prayer list. Happy birthday to Hannah Henderson on June 3, to Kali Langston and Aerik Langston on the 4th and to Jedidiah Phillips, Coley Max and Allison Stewart on the 6th! Happy anniversary to David and Heather Keith on June 2, to Michael and

Almyra Libby Click Hi everyone. The possibility exists; the sunshine behind the clouds will become a solid visibility soon, I do believe. While at the baseball tournament of my grandson, Zack Kidd, Saturday evening, Mr. Bill and I were able to view the quarter moon and a few stars. Zack’s team is better known as the Mudcats. They did finish the tournament as the champions. It was a very nice evening. Speaking of nice, I was in Dyersburg all day Saturday before going to the game that evening. My dear friends and church family at Phillip Street Church of Christ in Dyersburg, where I lived some 30 years ago, celebrated Mr. and Mrs. Bobby and Janice Diggs 60th wedding anniversary. I don’t know if you would call it a shower or a party, but it was the most incredible and beautifully-displayed event I’ve ever been to. Janice and Bobby were also my neighbors during those years, as well as several other couples who attended. All the grown children and grandchildren were there. It just made a very inspiring day for me. Sisters and brothers in Christ are family members forever. Sharon Presbyterian Church Worship is at 9 a.m. Charles Todd is the minister. We welcome all members, visitors and friends. Please continue to remember the following in your prayers: Kimberly Bascomb, Brian Holland, Mary Kirk, Lorrie

In closing, on Monday of this week, I took Mr. Bill and his classmate Mr. Glenn Briggs, visiting from Florida, to their first Monday’s monthly luncheon. They are graduates of Frayser’s class of 1955 and ‘56, in Memphis, of course. Upon arrival, I immediately discovered that other ladies were not present. My first thought was to go shopping, but I was hungry, so I stayed seated with six men for lunch. Boy was that an experience! Story after story, I learned a lot of information I wish I had known years ago. A lady sitting nearby heard a name mentioned and came over and started talking to us. She was a graduate of Tech High School, her husband graduated from Whitehaven and of course I represented Humes, four

Q: How do you think your experience was overall? A: “I had a rare case of showing no signs of a heart attack because the EKG and my enzymes showed normal. However, Dr. Nguyen had a gut feeling that something wasn’t right. He sent me to Baptist East in Memphis where they found a blockage. I had heart surgeries in October and December. Simply put, Dr. Nguyen saved my life and me and my family are grateful. He probably thinks it’s not a big deal but it is to me. I owe him my life.”

Local members clean cemetery, decorate graves of Civil War soldiers By RUSSELL BAILEY Tipton County Historian May, 1867 Two years had passed since the close of the War Between the States. Covington was a small county seat village without railroad, telegraph or newspaper. Col. R. H. Munford estimated the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population at â&#x20AC;&#x153;300 inhabitants.â&#x20AC;? It was in that year that the first memorial or decoration ceremony was held in the Munford Cemetery at Covington. The service, held on May 1, 1869, began at 9 a.m. at the female seminary (old city grammar school). Here, the ladies of the town gathered with their flowers and then proceeded to Munford Cemetery to decorate the graves of the Confederate and Union dead. As time marched on,

this informal ceremony grew to become an organized affair sponsored by the Ladies Memorial Association, then the Tipton County Confederate Memorial Association, the mission of which was to raise money for a monument to the Southern war dead in the county. After 1898, the ceremony was sponsored by the Baker Lemmon Chapter, No. 251, United Daughters of the Confederacy (UCV). The aged veterans of the Joe Brown bivouac, United Confederate veterans, would attend the memorial service in uniform carrying Confederate flags while men of Co. D, Confederate Veterans National Guard state troops would fire musket volleys in memorial salute. The graves of soldiers of the Spanish American War and the world wars

SRVS Tipton County Floyd Columbus Staff and service recipients dropped the newspaper article off at The Leader office on May 19. Some of the service recipients went to Brighton Middle School to help with the concession stand, along with the eighth grade GEMS on that day also. We were under the leadership of one of our staff members, Ms. Ginny. Staff and service recipients went to gym class on Tuesday, May 20, to exercise and work out. On Wednesday May 21, staff and service recipients went to SRVS in Memphis to dance class and worked out and learned some new dances. Afterwards, we went to Bartlett and had our picnic lunch at Bartlett Park. Staff and service recipients worked out in the garden and looked after the chickens, plus we cleaned the center on Friday, May 23. Mr. Bill Franklin tilled

the garden and cut the yard. We want to thank Ms. Amy Payne and Ms. Christi for bringing beanbag chairs and lawn furniture for the center. We appreciate the furniture very much, as well as Mr. Franklin for coming and cutting yard. We thank him for his hard work. Staff and service recipients were out for the Memorial Day holiday weekend Monday, May 26. The center reopened on Tuesday, May 27. It is good to be back at the center after a long holiday weekend. Some of the service recipients and staff also celebrated Memorial Day with their families on Monday, May 26. We need to take time to thank our veterans throughout the year. So thank a veteran for their service next time you see one. They have done a lot for us in the past and present plus what they are doing for us now as a nation. We want to thank those folks who continue to support our center throughout the year. Thank you all for what has been done for us here in the past and the present.

would be decorated in subsequent years. In 1901, the James R. Alexander Camp No. 257, Sons of Confederate Veterans was organized and joined in the effort. By the end of World War I, the UDC was assisted by the American Legion and later on the Legion Auxiliary. Spanish American War veterans joined as a co-sponsor. The Boy Scouts and John T. Eckford of Maley Funeral Home marked the graves of the Union, Confederate and World War dead during the 1930s. Following World War II, Ray Pinner Post No. 4840, Veterans of Foreign Wars joined with the American Legion about the time the ladies of the U.D.C. surrendered their charter. One of the last memorial services sponsored by these groups at Munford Cemetery was in May 1959.

In 1975, the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV was re-established in Covington as Hon. Charles B. Simonton Camp and chartered as unit No. 1339. Simonton had served as captain of Co. C, 9th Tennessee infantry until wounded and disabled in the Battle of Perryville, Ky. Following the war, he taught school, edited the Tipton Record, was elected state representative and was elected and re-elected U. S. congressman for two terms, 187882. He was the principal organizer of the UCV at Covington and for many years served as the master of ceremonies of the annual Confederate reunions held at Brighton and the memorial services in Munford Cemetery. Simonton had lost four brothers in the war and his wife, Mary McDill, had also lost loved ones in

We hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend. Staff and service recipients worked on their outcomes and listened to a CD of Michael Jackson on Wednesday, May 28, at the center. We also worked outside in the garden, plus we went outside and played

The University of Memphis English department recently held its annual Spring awards ceremony and luncheon to acknowledge the achievements of its outstanding undergraduate and graduate students for each departmental concentration. Elizabeth Baddour, wife of Dr. Jim Baddour of Covington, received the Graduate Award of Excellence for her work within the English Department’s graduate composition concentration.

Baddour, an instructor of English Composition at the University of Memphis, recently completed her PhD coursework in English composition studies. Her crossdisciplinary research in the University of Memphis history and English departments has led to national conference presentations at the Conference on College Composition and Communication, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, the College

Language Association; and presentations at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Tulane University, the University of Kentucky, and the University of Louisville. In addition to her research on nineteenthcentury literacy acquisition of West Tennessee African-Americans, Baddour’s research centers upon the contemporary issues of the intersection of alterity and rhetoric.

A: “Julie started working on getting me insurance and did not miss one thing during my stay. I was treated like a real person.” Q: How do you think your experience was overall? A: “The hospital employees saved my life, and I did not have to worry about anything when I was discharged. The nurses, Dr. Bower, and the case managers explained everything to me clearly. The dietary staff were wonderful. I’m so appreciative of all the staff and I’m now a big supporter of this hospital. Many thanks to all who helped me from the minute I arrived until the time I went home.”
