Deputy honored for heroic rescue Flood rescue earns deputy recognition from state

By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com

L

ast Friday a Tipton County deputy was honored for an act of heroism after saving a Gilt Edge woman from floodwaters last May. “If it weren’t for him I wouldn’t be here today,” Jackeline Frasure said Tuesday. During the historic flooding event in early May, the vehicle Frasure was driving was overtaken by swift-moving waters

during a thunderstorm. Unable to swim, Frasure moved to the top of her vehicle and waited for help to arrive. Deputy John Lemley answered the call on Gilt Edge Gin Road, in the western part of Tipton County. Deputy Chief Donna Turner, spokesperson for the Tipton County’s Sheriff’s Office, said Lemley quickly assessed the

deteriorating condition; the water, she said, was rising above the vehicle’s headlights. Frasure said she didn’t remember much about the incident, other than praying while waiting on deputies to arrive. “I think I panicked; I remember getting on top of the truck and getting up there and that’s about it,” she said. “When you say you talk to the Lord, let me

tell you, you scream at him, you make deals with him.” With backup still several minutes away, Lemley disregarded his own safety, retrieved a life jacket from his patrol car and waded into the chest high flood waters. Dashcam video of the rescue shows Lemley leading Frasure to safety to await her husband’s arrival. SEE RESCUE, PAGE A3

Ashley’s story Fourteen-year-old Ashley Ballard has been battling brain cancer for most of her life. She was initially diagnosed with cancer at 18 months old and her mother said the past few years have been a roller coaster ride and, though she had already gone through remission, her cancer returned in April.

Self-taught canners preserve as in days of old

By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com

A French candy maker and brewer named Nicolas Appert developed the process of food preservation, more commonly known as canning, in 1810 for French troops fighting in the Napoleonic Wars. Today, canning is enjoyed by many as a way to reduce food costs for their families and also, simply, as a hobby. Brighton resident Rick Stein has been canning for the past five years and has quickly become addicted to the process. “I put in a garden and I just had a lot of vegetables to harvest,” said Stein. “I decided I needed to do something with them, so I started canning. When I started tasting what I had canned, it was delicious. Much better than anything store bought.” Stein, who grew up surrounded by his mother’s gardens in Michigan, has been growing his own garden for a number of years. “We had really big gardens up there,” he said reminiscing. “I can remember growing up with probably an acre of garden. We planted corn, potatoes… a little bit of everything.” Stein admits he never paid much attention to his mother’s canning operation but he enjoyed the spoils of her work. “My mom did a lot of canning,” he said. “Of course I never paid much attention to that when I was younger, but I did enjoy eating it!” he added, laughing. A self-taught canner, Stein says he has learned his hobby by trial and error through the years. His garden this year has a palette of vegetables and fruits, which will help feed his family through the winter. “I’ve got tomatoes, some peppers, pickles, cucumbers, squash, watermelon, cantaloupe, zucchini, spa-

start-up cost to start a garden, you can buy seeds for a dollar and it does take a bit of work to keep the weeds away but it’s worth it.” Both Stein and Meyers rave about the difference in taste between their vegetables and fruits and what they buy at the grocery store. “The taste and the quality is much better to me,” said Stein. “You can make it however you like – season it the way you want and feel confident that you know exactly what’s in your food.” “I was so surprised at how great the beets taste when they’re fresh,” added Meyers. “I also find that I enjoy them more when I know I’ve grown it – when I’ve gotten out there myself and gotten dirty.” Stein said anyone can get started canning with only a small initial setup cost and said the hardest part is getting the garden ready for planting and the preparation of the vegetables. “There’s not really any overhead. You can buy a canner but it’s not necessary. The initial cost is your jars, but after the first season, you really only have to buy the lids and seals because you reuse the jars,” he said. “The hardest part of the whole thing is the preparation, the cutting up of the vegetables, getting it all ready to get it to can, using a hot water bath to get the skins off. It is painstaking to get it all ready but I enjoy it. ” “I’ve noticed more people are planting gardens this year. You can save money by canning your own food,” said Meyers. “But for me, I enjoy the satisfaction of being in the garden. I’ve shared things with my daughter and it’s been a joy to watch my greatgrandson play in the garden. It’s also a chance for me to talk to my father when I’m out there working the garden. I’m always asking him, ‘Daddy, am I doing this right?’ ‘Daddy is it time to pick the corn?’ I feel closer to him when I’m in my garden.”

ghetti squash, a little bit of everything,” he said. “I can do a lot of different things with tomatoes – bloody mary mix, salsa, tomato juice, spaghetti sauce, tomato soup – but my salsa is probably my best!” Stein’s interest in canning has not gone unnoticed and he recently convinced friend and fellow Brighton resident Beverly Meyers to join the canning bandwagon. “I wanted a garden this year and when everything started coming in I didn’t really have a plan,” Meyers said. “Freezing was okay but it wasn’t the most enjoyable experience. I remember my mom and grandmother canning and I started thinking back and remembered their enjoyment form it. And it is fun, getting the kitchen and making your own food. Another benefit to canning said Meyers is the saving she sees on her family’s grocery bill. “Oh, yeah, we save money,” she said. “My husband and I are both on a fixed income. There was a low

She initially underwent a 10-week course of chemotherapy, Marilyn said, and following that she had surgery to remove the tumors. Though surgeons believed they’d removed them, her follow-up appointment showed more tumors. In the two years since, Maliya has undergone six surgeries and more are in the future for the toddler. She was also board with a severe case of jaundice, Erb’s Palsy (paralysis of the arm), scoliosis (a curvature of the spine), Beckwith Wiedemann Syndrome (an over-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Wishing Dr. Vip a great retirement Dear editor, I want to wish Dr. Vip a wonderful retirement. My daddy was his patient for years before he passed away. He could not pronounce his name at first, but once his beloved Dr. Vip saw him you could not have dragged him to Memphis again. God bless you, Dr. Vip, and I am so happy you are going to be able to go back and visit your other home. Tipton County is so blessed to have known you and to have you for an M.D. Dorothy Wilson Smith Pensacola, Fla.

Bring back Ag column

Who’s responsible for adult health care?

Dear editor, I wish you would bring back the column written by an agricultural extension agent. Many of us live in rural areas of Tipton County where farm and garden information is very useful. Your paper would be more appealing if you brought that column back. Jean Wheeler Brighton

Thanks for the memory Dear Sherri, I just (re)read your story about Petty Officer Michael Noeth. Certainly I did not know him as well as you, but I feel his loss and think about him often as well. The clearest image I have in my mind is when we pulled into Haifa, Israel, and Michael brought his father onboard. I remember him proudly walking his father around the ship and pointing out several of the murals he had painted on the mess deck and in the hanger bay. I don’t remember the day he left, but I do remember missing him around the ship. Although my contact was very limited with Michael, when he left there was a feeling of something missing. I remember too sitting in the Mess with Kevin Callahan when Helen Rose came in yelling for us to turn the TV on. The picture came up just as the second plane hit the tower. That day was crazy for us all, preparing for another deployment and now maybe headed up North instead of East. We may never know what God has in store for us next, but it’s good to know that we will meet guys like Michael along the way. Thank you for sharing your story with everyone, it certainly brought a tear back to my eye. Butch Moeller Munford

Monday night’s CNN Tea Party Express Debates of the Republican Presidential Nominee candidates was lively and interesting. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the Tea Party folks have become a force to reckon with, and will be in the General Election next year as well. Many interesting topics were debated: social security, forced immunizations, maintaining troops overseas, jobs, health care, etc. One question stood out that did get some anti-Tea Party attention regarding what to do with a 30-year old without insurance that may die if not provided medical attention. I did not hear them on TV, but it was reported that some in the audience of thousands cried “let him die”. As a Christian I cannot condone such a callous response, but we should peel the onion back and get to the root of the issue. Since the New Deal in the 1930s, we have taken what was once the responsibility of families, local communities, churches and states, and handed over a plethora of cradleto-grave entitlements over to the federal government. As each generation progresses, we add to the list of things the federal government will now cover if an individual or his family/community are unable or unwilling to provide. Let’s take a country of 1000 families. There is someone in the country in need of surgery to live and it will cost $100,000. This country has decided to collectively take care

of all health care issues for those who do not buy insurance. Each family is asked to submit $1,000 to help this person get the JIM HARDIN life-saving surgery. Some object, stating this young man had the opportunity to buy insurance, but chose to spend money on boogie boards and bar-hopping instead. Others object saying they would have to deplete their children’s college fund to help this guy out. Some argue they are already too far in debt, and will have to go deeper in debt to help cover the cost. Still others complain that the government should allow local charities, communities and churches to try to raise the funds and work with the surgeon and hospital to reduce the costs first. The few in favor of the mandate to pay are some of the wealthier citizens who can afford a $1,000 here and $1,000 there. Oh, they could afford to donate what the young man needs, but they prefer a system that extracts money from all, regardless of their ability to pay. Some people love a system of relief that enables the government to pick your pockets for their pet charities. The questioner did not provide

details about the 30-year old. Was he capable of working and buying insurance, but chose not to? Did he not have a family, church or community to which he could turn? Was the 30-year old dying of causes related to poor choices he made (not wearing a helmet on a motorcycle, drug use, multiple sex partners, etc.)? Maybe these questions should not matter, but again, maybe they should? Look at the 9-11 payouts to victim’s families. Fifty one percent came from insurance companies, 42percent from government (nearly $20 billion of our money) and only 7percent from charities. Families found themselves suing each other over the huge sums involved. It was a mess and shameful process. Who paid the victims of Lexington in 1775, the victims of Pearl Harbor in 1941, or mob violence in the 20th century? Since when did personal tragedy require taxpayer payouts? I suppose what I am trying to get across is that we need a system that promotes individual responsibility, not collective coercion. Families should take responsibility for their loved ones. Communities and churches ought to be the first places a family turns to in time of need. I realize that we cannot stop all these federal entitlements overnight, but if we do not begin that process now, they will stop suddenly when America goes bankrupt, and then there will be no one who can pay for the 30-year old’s

Back then, any car beat having to hoof it We were all the same growin’ up in the metropolis of Rosemark. Yep, just plain “pore.” But no one knew the difference. Most families only had a truck but some had a car that was only used for special occasions. The car was always shiny and ready for a funeral, a ball game, a grocery trip, a Sears and Roebuck excursion or the most important trip to uptown Sunday church. Otherwise the bolts set there preparing to be a classic. Today’s youngsters wouldn’t understand me and all my friends were not allowed to drive a car for dates, just cruising, maybe going to Ormans’ Dairy Queen at Millington or a burger joint. As you get a

little older when you think back you realize just how smart yo’ Momma and Daddy actually were. Of course sometimes I just knew I was a lot more intelligent though not ever given credit. Beloved, on our front porch talks later in life I understood a little more. As my country folks lazily recall some of the reasons for not shifting all over the country side were listed. Insurance and maintenance on the Detroit hammer knocker. As Daddy always called gasoline (not GAS) and oil causing wear and tear. “Go ahead and walk or ride yo’ bicycle if you just got to go but get back in time to get yo’ rest.” “Work day tomorrow and don’t stay out too much past dark.” Boogers will get you.

Friends, I wanted a permit w h i c h allowed driving with a grownup in the vehicle, required SOUTHERN RAISIN' or a five-star OTIS GRIFFIN general and his tank in the backseat with maybe a goat herder slinging a shaft but that dog didn’t hunt either. My permit came when Daddy decided to do a permit, which didn’t work at all. So I thumbed. All of the above reasons totaled why I couldn’t drive however the biggest reason and actually the only one that really

counted was, “because Daddy said SO.” End of the conversation, if there ever was one. Emerson, Arvis, Phil, Tommy, Edward Neal, big Paul, Don and Wayne all went through the same torture. Youthful incarceration. Maurice, Jimmie and Lynn fought the same battles to no avail. Marshall, George Robert and “Bub Fred” did remind us with, “you could have ridden a blue-gummed, sway-backed mule!” Maybe some have wondered how in the world did we get to Bolton High school way back when? Very, very simple! We rode a school bus. Believe it or not, but I had to lower myself to ride with all my friends in a hard bouncing, cold cast iron

seats, snorting, smoke belching, loud gear grinding piece of equipment designed to transport aliens from Mars and the north. I guess we should have been embarrassed but we didn’t know any better. Matter of fact we were thrilled not to have to cantor. Neighbor don’t you just hate to ease by school parking lots at fifteen miles per hour and see more vehicles than in the mall? Just plain ruthless! Yesss Suhhh a few things have changed. But for the better? (Found in Momma’s wrinkly cook book listed in nineteen thirty seven… chuck roast…15 cents a pound?) Some redneck traveling memories…Glory!

FINANCIAL FOCUS

Be aware of key benefits of life insurance You may be unaware of it, but September is Life Insurance Awareness Month. And while a whole month may seem like a long time to focus on life insurance, it’s actually a good opportunity for you to realize the important role that life insurance can play in your life.

an important part of your estate plans. To use life insurance properly for estate planning, consult with your legal advisor. Of course, one big question that you may ask is this: How much life insurance do I need? You’ve probably seen those estimates that say you should have insurance that’s worth a certain number of years times your annual income. While this might not be a bad estimate, it’s not a hard-and-fast rule for every single individual. The amount of insurance you need will depend on a variety of factors: your age, income, size of family, value of home, employment situation and so on. Your financial advisor can help you determine the level of insurance that’s appropriate for your needs. Now that you’ve seen how life insurance may help you over the years, and you’ve got a sense of how to determine the amount of coverage you need, you can appreciate the message behind Life Insurance Awareness Month — so take it to heart and make sure you’ve got the proper insurance plan in place.

The Civil War In Tipton County, September 1861 By RUSSELL BAILEY Tipton County Historian During September 1861, nearly all of the Confederate forces remaining in Tipton County were ordered to Kentucky. The fighting and frolicking Irishmen of Knox Walker’s 2d Tennessee Infantry moved from Randolph to Fort Pillow. On the 5th Major Charles Hill’s Cavalry left Camp Clopton en route for Columbus. Mrs. Thomas Taylor wrote of their departure: “Poor fellows, I am afraid they will miss this neighborhood when they get off. They have had three fine dinners and two parties given them.” A lady at Portersville wrote a less favorable assessment of these troopers: “Captain Hill’s company left last Thursday. They were sorry to leave, but if all reports are true the people that live near Clopton was glad. They left a large supply of jugs and bottles. Some person brought Rhodes a hamper basket full of flasks & said they would not be missed from there. They only drank ten barrels of whiskey according to reports besides a daily jug and bottle supply.” The 4th and 9th Tennessee Regiments took the train from Hickman to Columbus. A soldier of the 9th Tennessee wrote: “On the evening of the 5th orders were given to prepare to move. Our baggage… was put on board a steamer and sent by water and we were to go on the cars. The arrangements were consummated about 6 o’clock p.m. and we were ready to be off for Columbus, Ky., as usual in the rear of Col. (Wm. H.) Stephens’ (6th Tennessee) Regiment. Numerous citizens were congregated to witness our departure upon the high peaks of the hills, which raise so eminently high above the level of the waters beneath, and from which towered a forest grove, so grand, beautiful and sublime, that the mind of man would naturally be filled with reverence and awe on beholding its exquisite beauty and terrific splendor …And which the sweet and cheerful notes of martial music sainted our ears, and bright countenance of the sweet ladies and the waving of their handkerchiefs bid us a happy trip, the moving engine drew us away… we went pleasantly on to Columbus via Union City… we arrived at Columbus, at 4 o’clock a.m. on the 6th…” On Sept. 6th, Union forces occupied the town of Paducah, Kentucky. Paducah was important because of its location at the juncture of the Tennessee and Ohio rivers near the mouth of the Cumberland. Confederate forces at Columbus were re-organized on the 7th. The regiments/battalions that Tipton County companies served in were placed in the following

commands: 4th Tennessee Infantry (Tipton Rifles): Col. John P. McCown’s 2d Brigade 9th Tennessee Infantry (Co. C.); Col. Wm. Stephens’ 4th Brigade Hill’s Cavalry: Lt. Col. Thomas Logwood’s Battalion Southern Guards Heavy Artillery was under the command of Gen. Gideon Pillow.” On the 9th H. M. Lynn of

Co. C, 9th Tennessee wrote his wife: “Your letter cheered me very much…Our forces are coming in very fast. There is…about 20,000 in all. Gen. Jeff Thompson was here with about 3,000 of his troops. Yesterday…a little after sunrise one of our batteries let loose our ‘dog of war’ upon one of the enemy’s gunboats. Some 10 or 12 shots were exchanged which ended as did the firing at Hickman (no

casualties.)… Our boys are ready to meet the Yankees whenever they come. If they will wait a few days longer, I think with the justness of our cause and the natural advantages of the place, we could stand against the whole world combined. Nature has furnished us with better fortifications than we could have made in 12 months. There is a high hill which extends all around the place…

Jerry Allen Ball

May 19, 1928 - September 7, 2011 Jerry Allen Ball passed on Wednesday, September 7, 2011. If ever Norman Rockwell needed a subject to represent the salt of the earth, American patriot, good husband and good Daddy, Jerry would be it.

He was born on May 19, 1928 and raised during the Great Depression on his parents’ farm in the Concord Community of Lauderdale County with his three brothers and three sisters. He attended the one room schoolhouse where he caught the school bus every morning in the form of a two-team mule drawn wagon. The good ole country boy turned soldier served at the end of World War II in both Germany and Japan. He then fought in Korea, where he earned a Good Conduct Medal (which surprised even his grandkids), a Purple Heart and four Bronze Medals (which did not). Mr. Ball came back to the States and married his childhood sweetheart, Carolyn Ange Ball, with whom he shared his life for the next six decades. He was a lead mechanic at Southwestern Trucking Line in Memphis for 28 years until he retired, returning to his roots as a gentleman farmer in Covington. Jerry was a talker and quite the storyteller, and his steeljawed memory would put an elephant to shame; his wit outlasted his body. At 83, this past Labor Day he announced to us “I’m ready to meet my maker.” Jerry Allen Ball is survived by his wife, Carolyn Ball, his two daughters: Cindy Cook (Steve); and Brenda Ball along with two grandsons: Chase and Grant Cook. He is also survived by his sister, Christine Johnson, of Oklahoma City. Jerry was preceded in death by his parents: Ivan and Irene Ball, and his siblings Ivan Ball JR, Louise Carmack, Pickard Ball, Mary Frances Hardy and William Lynn Ball. A celebration of his life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 18 at Concord United Methodist Church in Gates, Tenn. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the Wounded Warrior Project or another charity of your choice. The Leader (Covington, Tenn.) Sept. 15, 2011

Correspondents Mt. Carmel-Clopton Tuesday morning. Going to be back near he mid-90’s today, after 70’s last week! Everyone was talking about making chili and soup last week. Sounds too hot now. But the 70’s are back at the end of the week. This week’s Farm Report: We need rain on our beans but cotton is opening so it doesn’t need any more rain! But the grass is dry and we really need rain. The cotton will dry out; the beans are still making! We have a few acres of corn not shelled yet, still too much moisture. Should get that done tomorrow before our chance of rain. It’s been a good year for corn. Speaking of rain, so many states are having

wildfires. Pray for rain for them - folks in Louisiana were asking for prayers for rain on Facebook this morning. I visited with Ellen Weedman last Thursday when I went to town. Took her some family history that Shirley Weir worked so hard on. The Weirs and Tatlocks are related by marriage and we finally got to see how on paper. We had a great time together, as we always do. I love going out to her place. I’ve been baking. Elizabeth and I are trying to get this homebased bakery going and my freezer is getting full of cookies and cupcakes. Sold three dozen Peanut Butter cupcakes Sunday, made chocolate chip yes-

terday and plan to make Red Velvet and Lemon today. Love it! I’ve wanted to do this for years. Love baking but need to practice on icing cookies. Make some cotton boll cookies I’ve got to make look like cotton bolls! Have a tent at Heritage Day and will have my two books and bakery items. Come see me! I think I’m over close to the Chamber Center. Jerry Melton, Kenneth Mason, Jimmy Weir, Andy Reynolds, Faye Shankle and Grant Edmonds are all recovery from surgery. Keep them in your prayers for full recoveries. And our servicemen and women. Sympathy goes to the friends and family of Dee Whitesides, who passed away over the weekend. They are in my prayers in their loss. The birthday party at

Elm Grove

in our flowerbeds. Now tell me how one of them has white blooms on it, it is so pretty. We have had a huge dump truck load of dirt hauled in and put in the ravine in our back yard. Our good neighbor, Mr. Alvin Williams, came down with his tractor and smoothed it out for us. Here we two are out there with our shovels, trying to spread this big giant load of dirt. Thanks to Mr. Alvin for smoothing out this big pile of dirt. We purchased some grass seeds and have

been watering it each day. Only a few seed have come up so far. We have three apple trees in our back yard. It is time for them to be harvested. They are so good. The first year we were here we dried apples. They are still in the freezer. I had hopes of making apple pies. I think I have given up on cooking. Prayer concerns: Becky & Franklin Pace. Mr. Franklin is in the hospital. Elm Grove United Methodist Church will

something more conservative. And even more, I would have too. My youngest child is somewhat more conservative than the others, it may be because she is more like her mother. That would be nice and maybe one day she might even admit it! The Brighton football team did it again! A victory over Covington! It was a great game and I commend the teams and fans for the sportsmanship they showed during the game. The Brighton band will attend their first competition this Saturday at Martin. If you haven't had a chance to see them they are really looking spectacular. That is another reason to go to a football game. Well I have to say

I'm not surprised that Sponge Bob is not good programming. Yea to my daughters who do not let their children watch this disrespectful cartoon. I absolutely hate that program. Yea for research showing that it is detrimental on four year old's concentration levels. The Central Baptist Church will be doing a fundraiser for the Awana program. They are selling meals on Monday Sept 26th. They are having 1) Fried chicken with potatoes and gravy, green beans and a dessert, or 2) Spaghetti with a salad and bread and a dessert. The meals are $7 each and will be delivered between 5 and 7pm. Hope everyone has a wonderful week. Happy Birthday to all who are celebrating!

I got up early this morning... 7 a.m. The weather is so beautiful. Went outside to look at my flowerbeds. It's strange how grass grows in my flowerbeds and just barley grows in our yard. We have lots of volunteer crepe myrtles coming up and really growing. I have counted 30 myrtles right at our garage door. And several of them are blooming. We only have light pink and dark pink

Dear Friends, what a beautiful early fall we must be having. We certainly deserve it after the summer we've had. My poor plants are so confused, they started to die out and now it has cooled off and they are unsure whether to give another boost or not. Interesting details to all who have young women in your family who are pregnant. Do you remember when we wore tents and "baby doll" shirts? Now it is okay to wear clingy shirts, skirts, or whatever. I don't have a problem with this but I do find it interesting. My grandmother would have rolled her eyes and told me to change into

Covington Manor will be at 2 on the 17. Devotional at Covington Care will be at 4 on Sunday. Members of the Covington Church of Christ are looking forward to our annual Family Day Oct. 2. Jerrie Barber will be our speaker. RUSH at Freed Hardeman is this weekend. We have two members there, Ellie Wall and John Evans, who are loving their college experience! Happy Birthday this week goes to Jake Hodge on the 15th and to Parker Stanley and Chloe Coughlan on the 17th! This week’s Farmer’s Almanac Quote: “To treat water stains on wood furniture, mix 1 tablespoon of corn oil with salt to make a paste. Apply, wait for 15 minutes then wipe off”. be have our revival on Sept 18, 19, & 20. The Circuit Riders will bring the message and music each night. YALL COME! LOVE & PRAYERS.

“Thanks for Reading” this week goes to Dorothy Smith and her childhood girlfriends from the Detroit area, Dorothy Scroggins Vandergrift of Texas and Mary Perry Stenger of Oregon! Longdistance Sa-lute! Since Amanda Cochran fell in love with the white dog Mattie and

took her home with her to Henning, we have no animals for the first time in years! We always had cats, had our dear Popcorn for 13 years, then Frankie. It’s weird not having animals around to feed! Or let you know when someone is at the door!

It seems like the fires in Texas have become an everyday thing. Our friends Mr. Frank and Marlene Brown have two sons and families who live in Houston, only 10 minutes away from the fires.

I am enjoying these nice, cool days of late. A few of 'em felt like it was fall already. Anyway, fall's right around the corner. I love fall. I get to wear my boots. We've got a few sick in and around us. Troy (Landon) King is feeling a lot better now. He now lives up in Nashville and he's the younger son of Doris Cobbs King of Jamestown.

Local cheerleader to perform in the London New Year’s Day parade By Sherri Onorati sonorati@covingtonleader.com Covington High School senior Morgan Rae Harris is one of more than 500 high school cheerleaders and dancers from across the U.S. who will be performing in the world famous London New Year’s Day parade. Morgan, along with cheerleaders from across the country, was selected to perform in the parade after qualifying for the trip by being selected as an AllAmerican at a cheerleading summer camp this summer hosted by Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA). AllAmericans are selected to try out based on superior cheerleading skills at camps across the country. “Being selected for All-American is a great privilege,” said Morgan. “This opportunity is a once in a lifetime chance for me.”

Each year, more than 325,000 cheerleaders attend over 5,000 camp sessions sponsored and hosted by Varsity Camps across the country. Varsity has been hosting cheerleading camps since 1974. Only the top 12 percent of cheerleaders who attend Varsity summer camps earn the chance to march in the holiday spectacular. In addition to performing in the London parade, the All Americans will have the chance to tour London during their seven-day trip. “This is the 25th year we’ve been able to bring talented cheerleaders to

The 2009 MHS band did receive High Visual Score, High Percussion Score and the Marine Corps Esprit de Corps Award with a score of 97.90 for their show, “Emergence of Triumph” This year’s show is a mosaic of a city’s sounds played through the instruments of the band, “City Energy, a Mosaic.” The students, directors Barry Trobaugh, Gary Fite and Peter Colin, along with their staff – and the band parents have been working extremely hard through a difficult summer of extreme temperatures. “I want to thank all those adults that give their valuable time to devote to my students,” said band director Barry Trobaugh. “Each and every day, a small army of adults prepare water and Gatorade, provide cooling towels, mend quirky equipment and supervise these wonderful young adults. They do so without compensation and with only the occasional verbal thank you. They are the visual illustration of the pride and dedication necessary to run a studentprogram of this kind. These adults are the Munford Band in so many ways. Without their persistent vigil of care-giving to our students, we could not and would not continue the current level of instruction.” As the show progresses through performances each Friday night,

the audience sees the students’ year to help with sending band achievement as they make their members to nationals. The sets. This band gives the students Munford band program is thanksomething to work hard for, plea- ful for their continued generosity sure and pride in their hard work and support.

Thursday, September 15, 2011 • THE LEADER • A11 BRIGHTON CUB SCOUTS RIDE FOR LOVE The Brighton Cub Scouts, Pack 260, recently performed a service project to support Multiple Sclerosis (MS) with a bike ride in Desoto County. Junior Webelos assistant den leader Mike Hutchinson rode in the race, a 175-mile, two-day event and raised $1,000. Hutchinson rode in honor of his niece who has MS. Brighton Cub Scouts raised an additional $50 for the cause with Dakota Schaf a Jr. Webelo and family donating an additional $25. Conor Haubrich and Colt Beyer, Jr. Webelo scouts, Tara Haubrich and AJ Heustis participated in the event. The scouts spent hours handing out water, holding bikes as riders took quick breaks, and disposing of trash to assist the riders.

Nationwide sweepstakes calls for community members to help local K-12 schools win refurbishment grants worth $25,000 Youth everywhere are already dreading the end of summer vacation. Sprite is here to help students swing back into the school year with newly refurbished recreational spaces. The Sprite Spark Parks Project for Schools program is giving local schools across the country the opportunity to liven up areas on their campuses where students can play, stay fit and be refreshed all school year long. The Sprite Spark Parks Project is a multi-year commitment to build and restore places where teens, families and communities can get outside and get active. Through its work with teens and parents, Sprite will put more than $2 million into building or revamping a minimum of 150 outdoor spaces throughout the country in 2011. These spaces include neighborhood parks, basketball courts, playgrounds and athletic fields. Parents and community members can give their favorite school a chance to win one of 25 grants worth $25,000 by entering My Coke Rewards codes found on speciallymarked Sprite packaging. Codes can be submitted at www.mycokerewards. com/sprite between July 18 and Sept. 30, giving people across the U.S. the opportunity to play a major role in ensuring that their schools have fun, clean and safe places to play for years to come. “The Sprite Spark Parks Project for Schools supports local communities and breathes new life into the recreation spaces that are so important to teens,” said Michael Mathews, Vice President, Sparkling Non-Colas, Coca-Cola North America. “We saw an ongoing need for outdoor spaces at schools. Sprite is adding a spark back into school playgrounds and athletic fields by building places where youth can get active and stay refreshed with their friends.” During last year’s program, three schools each won a $25,000 playground renovation from Sprite after parents and community members rallied to donate points. Another 20 schools were awarded $5,000 to be used towards athletic equipment for each school. Sprite kicks-off the national sweepstakes this month by revamping seven K-12 schools across America in need of an outdoor play space with a $25,000 playground or athletic field donation. Accredited K-12 schools (public and private) located within the 50 United States and the District of Columbia are eligible to take part in the My Coke Rewards for Schools program. A full list of eligible schools can be found at mycokerewards.com/schools. Schools must be registered in the program to redeem points for rewards. Community members are urged to contact their local school’s principal or a faculty staff member if their school is not registered. Additionally, members of the community are encouraged to register for My Coke Rewards and donate their points to their local schools to enable schools to get new equipment without tapping into their own budgets.

Late score leads Brighton past Covington, 21-10 By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Through three and a half quarters of Friday night's game against county rival Covington, Brighton preseason all-state wideout Ricky Foster had not made much of an impact. But when the game was on the line, he came up huge. With 6:42 remaining in the game and the Cardinals clinging to a 14-10 lead, Foster used all of his 6-2 frame to out jump Johnston White and T. J. Plymouth at the goal line. Foster came down with the ball in the end zone and provided his team with a much-needed margin for error. Covington tried to rally late, but the Brighton defense held • R. Foster (BHS) 1 TD, 60 rec yds strong for a 21-10 win • B. Stewart (BHS) 18-36 pass, 195 yds, TD in front of a packed • C. Robinson (CHS) 85 yds,1 TD rush house at Covington. “I knew I had a height advantage,” Foster said after the game. “I kept telling coach to just throw it, just throw it … This feels good. We did not want to lose this game.” Brighton head coach Will Wolfe laughed when told after the game about his player's requests to get the ball. “Ricky's just a playmaker,” said Wolfe. “He's a great player. We're always trying to get him the football.” The game turned into a defensive struggle in the second half with Foster's touchdown being the only points scored. Trailing 14-10, Covington (3-1) drove deep into Brighton territory midway through the third quarter behind a 37-yard run by White, but the drive ended on downs at the Cardinal 29. With 9:16 left in the game Covington quarterback

County soccer teams earn wins By JEFF IRELAND, STEVE HOLT jireland@covingtonleader.com Brighton, Munford and Covington all found success in recent soccer action. The Lady Cardinals (5-0-1 overall, 2-0 District 13-AAA) won a key league game at Jackson North Side on Tuesday, 2-1. Kelsi Williams got the equalizer for Brighton on a free kick in the second half. In the 76th minute, Hannah "Mo" Whitefoot scored on a touch pass from Amy Janes for the game winner. Brighton keeper Gabby Ripley saved a North Side penalty kick to help

preserve the win. On Monday, Brighton defeated Overton 6-0. Courtney Carpenter scored two goals and Whitefoot, Williams, Emily Kirk and Amelia Nolan-Wickstead each scored once. Last Thursday, Brighton rallied for a 2-1 league win over Dyer County. Carpenter got the game winner in the 80th minute on an assist from Alex Lowe. Makenzie Branch assisted Carpenter on Brighton's first goal, which tied the game at 1-1. "These girls kept fighting," Brighton coach Shari Garrett said. "We had numerous opportunities throughout the match, SEE SOCCER, PAGE B10

Most competitive football games come down to a handful of plays. In Munford head coach Matt Saunders' estimation, that was the case Friday night in his team's 2823 loss at Millington in the M and M Bowl. “We left a lot of plays on the field,” Saunders said. “That's what's so frustrating. If we could have made two or three plays, we might have ended up winning that game.” The Cougars (1-3) nearly won it anyway. Trailing 21-10 heading into the fourth quarter, Munford made things interesting down the stretch. Stephen Stewart, who finished 15-of-26 passing for 176 yards, hit Derek Pierce on a four-yard touchdown pass to trim the deficit to 21-16. After Millington (3-0) answered with a 41-yard touchdown run by Roland Genesy, Munford responded with a three-yard touchdown run by D'Marious Exum. The Munford defense got a stop and drove to midfield with two minutes remaining, but the drive ended on downs there. Millington picked up a first down and was able to run out the clock and remain undefeated. Exum, who led Munford with 100 yards on 13 carries, scored on a one-yard run in the first quarter to the score at 7-7. Millington's Josh Wilmer got the scoring started with a 15-yard touchdown run. Genesy, who finished with 164 yards on 22 carries, scored from four yards out in the second quarter to give Millington a 14-7 lead.

Tyler Gray booted a 37-yard field goal for Munford in the third quarter to cut the lead to 14-10. Howell had a big game for Munford, finishing with eight catches for 129 yards. Millington and Munford each finished with 296 total yards. “We played good,” Saunders said. “I thought we did a lot of good things.”

Munford lost to Millington 49-7 last season. “Progress has been made,” Saunders said. “I've seen signs of improvement. From the fans' point of view, I'm sure that they can see the hard work and the effort … But to me, as a coach, I want to get W's. I don't want to get close. I want to beat Millington.”

CHILDREN'S CORNER

Why does God allow bad things to happen? By CAREY KINSOLVING KidsTalkAboutGod.org On the morning of September 11, 2001, people the world over saw the face of evil in the kamikaze airplane crashes that claimed the lives of thousands and left millions mourning for the surviving families and loved ones. In spite of all the attempts of philosophers and psychologists to rationalize away sin and evil, it's difficult to deny its effects at a time like this. We live in a fallen world very far from the paradise God created for us. In this world, bad things happen to us that we simply can't explain apart from evil. Given our natural tendency toward self-reliance, the bad things we encounter can drive us "to depend on God," "to learn something" and "to come closer to Him," say Katy, 7, Kelly, 6, and Kelsey, 7. "God wants us to ask him for help," says Katherine, 7. Furthermore, we might discover that God regularly turns the world and intentions of evil people upside down. After being sold into slavery by his envious brothers (Genesis 37) and falsely accused (Genesis 39), Joseph was thrown into an Egyptian jail and forgotten. Joseph could have held a perpetual pity party and focused only on all the bad things that happened to him. Instead, he discovered what Kendall, 11, learned: "I've found when you lose something or someone special, the Lord blesses you with something even better." That something, in Joseph's case, was beyond his imagination. Joseph used his God-given ability to interpret Pharaoh's dream, which was a prophecy about a coming famine. He recommended a plan for storing grain that saved many lives. In one day, Joseph went from jailbird to prime minister of Egypt. When his cruel brothers showed up to buy food because of the famine, he could have said: "Payback time! Starve for all I care!" Instead, Joseph forgave them and treated them with kindness and generosity. Speaking to his brothers about their selling him into slavery, Joseph said, "You meant evil against me, but God meant it for

Then Joseph said to his brothers, "Come close to me." When they had done so, he said, "I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you. - Genesis 45:4-5

good" (Genesis 50:20). Looking back, Joseph saw God's ingenious career path that promoted him to a position in which he saved many lives from the seven-year famine. Just as Joseph accepted the bad things God allowed in his life, Jesus faced what looked like the greatest disaster of all time -- crucifixion on a cross. In our day, the cross has been turned into a beautiful symbol, but in Jesus' day, it was equivalent to the electric chair -- the worst punishment for the worst criminals. To die on a cross between two criminals appeared to be total defeat and humiliation. Yet, God took this shameful death and turned it into the greatest victory in all history: victory over death. In this irony of ironies, resurrection life now flows from what had appeared to be the most tragic death ever recorded. "We deserved to be punished for our sins," says Launa, 8, "but remember that God suffered worse." God has a mysterious way of

taking what people intend for evil and working it out so that his purpose is accomplished in a way that the depraved perpetrators could never have imagined. The ultimate terrorist, Satan himself, never imagined that Jesus' death on the cross would pay for the sins of the world. Every time someone accepts God's gift of eternal life, Satan gnashes his teeth. "All things work together for good," says Carly, 11, quoting part of Romans 8:28. Carly, don't forget the qualifying part of this promise, "to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." Some might call such an optimistic view of bad things unrealistic, wacky or just plain nuts, but not Katharyn, 8, and Rachel, 9: "He wants us to believe in him so that we will have faith."

must do some reevaluating; it's important to stay focused on the issues and activities that are important to its people while still working hard to reach others. Along the same vein, because we want to be relevant and read and help you in your mission, we have recently reevaluated our faith pages and have made some changes. The church directory, for instance, will now only be published in the first issue of each month and we have decided to lay the Church of the Week feature to rest indefinitely. The church directory is an important vehicle which we hope brings new people to your

church, but we're hoping for more effective ways in which to publicize your parish life and aid in recruitment. We now have a team of contributors in place who will write commentary and we are accepting photos and information about your youth groups, outreach, ministries and church events. We want to fill these pages with happiness, with fellowship, with the reasons you love your church and your faith. We know that here in the Bible Belt church activities are as much a part of your life as ball games and barbecue and we want our newspaper to reflect this.

We invite you to send in your submissions (you can email them to news@ covingtonleader.com) and follow along as our faith pages begin to evolve from static content to pages that mirror the way you live your life: not just in words but also through action. This is not how we've traditionally approached these pages, but after some reflection we believe it's best to move forward, to focus our efforts on what's important, to focus on the life being lived in churches all over the county, because that's what it's all about.

Want to see photos from your church on our faith pages? Send snapshots from a recent event, outreach program, youth group, awards recognition, etc. to news@covingtonleader.com for possible publication in an upcoming edition.

After reevaluating, changes in store for faith pages Newspapers, as we once knew them, are dying. No longer can publishers print every word of news, every photo submitted, every community event, every church listed in the directory. But this is a good thing. It forces us to reevaluate our priorities, the importance of the news we're printing and the wants and needs of our readers. The same can be said for churches: they're not attended as often these days and many do not bring in as much revenue as they once did. When this happens, a church, much like a business,

September is National Library Card Sign-up Month. There are two libraries in Tipton County - one at the corner of College and Church streets in Covington and another on Munford Avenue in downtown Munford. The mission of these libraries is to give free and equal access to each citizen in Tipton County, which means you can check out books or use computers at no charge.
