Johnson sentenced to life in prison MEMPHIS – A Burlison man has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of hiring someone to kill his mother. On Thursday, Billy Harold Johnson, 50, was sentenced by United States District Judge S. Thomas Anderson to three concurrent terms

of life in prison following his conviction by a federal jury in the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee on three counts of violating the murder for hire statute and eight counts of perjury, announced Lawrence J. Laurenzi, United States Attorney

for the Western District of Tennessee. The sentence follows a 10-year joint investigation by the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (“TBI”), the Tennessee Bomb and Arson Section, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms,

and Explosives (ATF), and the United States Attorney’s Office. Johnson was indicted in 2007 for hiring a hit man, Danny Winberry, to murder Johnson’s mother, Martha Johnson. According to the indictment and testimony at trial, in July 1999,

Billy Johnson offered Winberry $50,000 to murder Martha Johnson. On July 22, 1999, Winberry (using a key provided by the defendant) went to Martha Johnson’s home and waited inside until Ms. Johnson returned home at about 5:30 p.m.

Winberry then bludgeoned Ms. Johnson to death with an antique iron. Later that evening, Winberry set fire to Ms. Johnson’s home, in an effort to destroy the crime scene. The Tipton County SEE JOHNSON, PAGE A2

Police searching for missing man By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com COVINGTON – Deputies with the Tipton County Sheriff's Office are searching for a Stanton man missing since early October. Officials say 51-yearold Dwight Glenn Creasy, who works as a laborer for a Stanton farmer, showed up for work on Saturday, Oct. 3 and was last seen at a Mason business. He was reported missing the next day by a couple with whom he lived on CharlestonMason Road. "He hasn't had contact with his immediate family, but that isn't odd," said Deputy Chief Donna Turner. "He hadn't talked to his

mother in two months and his brother in seven months." Turner said family members reported Creasy has gone missing in the past, disappearing out-of-state for a period of time. He has been described as a person with few friends and contacts, but his roommates and family are concerned about his welfare and whereabouts. Detectives do not suspect foul play, however during the investigation into his disappearance, active warrants for forgery were filed. "After he was reported missing by his roommates, a forgery complaint was filed," Turner said. Missing for nearly

four weeks, Turner suspects Creasy has run out of money. "He has to be doing something to survive; someone's assisting him in some way," she said. Though Creasy does not own a vehicle, detectives suspect he has left the area. Even without active warrants for his arrest, Turner and deputies SEE MISSING, PAGE A2

Strange Covington odor explained By SHERRI ONORATI sherrio@covingtonleader.com

Last week a worker from Memphis Sign Erectors begins the process of removing the Huffman Buick, Pontiac and GMC sign from the Covington dealership. Huffman was one of the casualties from the GM bankruptcy filing.

Dealer finds new beginning after GM bankruptcy By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com In May, Covington auto dealer Phil Huffman found out his dealership was one of 1,100 being closed as General Motors restructured and last week the closure became official. Huffman said when the GM sign came down it was the end of an era. "It was kind of like losing a family member, it was my baby," he said. "It was tough, but you get over things like that." The GM dealership closures announcement came in mid-May and by June 1, after years of declining sales and shares, the corporation filed bankruptcy protection. With $172.8 billion in debt, GM had the fourth-largest industrial corporation bankruptcy filing in U.S.

history. What has been called a "landmark" government bailout, GM exited bankruptcy in July and the U.S. Treasury now owns more than 60 percent of its stock. Huffman said he wasn't as upset with his dealership's termination as he was with the bankruptcy filing. "By them taking bankruptcy, they were able to eliminate a lot of the laws that provided us with protection as franchises," he said. "They were able to sidetrack (Tennessee laws) and not have to live up to the things they would have normally lived up to." Instead of GM regaining control of Huffman's inventory and buying back parts and tools, Huffman has SEE HUFFMAN, PAGE A3

This past Monday morning, the phone lines started lighting up at the Covington Public Works department. Residents began calling to notify the department of a very strong natural gas odor in the northwest Covington area. Though it smelled like a natural gas leak, it was in fact, the chemical used to help detect natural gas, an odorless gas. At approximately 10 a.m., the City of Covington was in the process of cleaning up the maintenance center located at 410 E. Ripley Street when a salvaged injector pump containing captan was accidently damaged. Captan, the common name for ethanethiol or ethyl mercaptan, is used as an odorant for natural gas and liquid

propane delivery to help identify leaks. “Captan is highly concentrated,” explained Covington Public Works Director Robert Martin Simpson. “So even though less than a gallon was spilled, the odor has spread over the northwest Covington area.” The spill was quickly contained and cleanup began immediately but Simpson said until the chemical is completely diluted by water, the smell will remain. “We apologize for any inconvenience the odor may have caused but residents have been doing the right thing by calling the Public Works Department,” assured Simpson. “Anytime a resident has concerns of a possible gas leak, please call our 27/7 hotline at 476-7163. We would rather investigate all concerns to ensure the safety of the public.”

MHS band marching back to nationals By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com MUNFORD – Vying for another in a series of Bandmasters championships Saturday, this week the Munford band is also asking for help getting to nationals. Enjoying incredible success for many years and nicknamed "The Pride of South Tipton County," the Munford High School marching

band has been invited to compete on the national level once again. "It's great to be invited back," said Gary Fite, MHS assistant band director. "We're excited about going to back to nationals. We want to go and try to show this area that we can win there." In 2007, the band qualified to compete at the USSBA national competition. Band members had just three weeks to

raise $75,000 to fund the trip and, thanks to donations from the community, they raised approximately $84,000. The band placed third in its class and fifth in the entire nation. Two years later, the band once again needs financial support from the community to make the trip to the East Coast. SEE BAND, PAGE A3

A fire destroyed one of the warehouses of Jones Manufacturing on Wednesday.

Fire destroys former Jones Manufacturing By SHERRI ONORATI sherrio@covingtonleader.com Exactly one month to the day, the former Jones Manufacturing building has again met misfortune. An early afternoon fire yesterday, destroyed hundreds of pounds of cotton bales which were being stored in the 1960s building.

Karastamatis explained workers were attempting to clear away debris from the early incident when a spark from a cutting tool ignited a bale of cotton. “The fire managed to find the one dry spot left on the cotton,� said Karastamatis. “The rest of the cotton was drenched from all the rain we’ve been getting.� Covington Fire Department was quickly on scene to extinguish the blaze.

JOHNSON Continued from Page A1 Sheriff’s Office requested both the TBI and the Tennessee Bomb and Arson Section for assistance with the investigation of this crime. The ATF joined the investigation in 2000. In 2004, a federal grand jury investigation began, resulting in the indictments of Winberry in 2004 and Johnson in 2007. Winberry pleaded guilty in February 2007 and was sentenced to 30 years in prison in June 2009 by United States District Judge Bernice B. Donald.

Animal adoption fair set By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com In honor of National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, the Tipton County Animal Shelter will host an adoption event on Saturday, Oct. 31. Hoping to find their furry friends a forever family, organizers have scheduled the fair at Centennial Park in Munford from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. "We will have beautiful, healthy pets for adoption as well as concessions, door prizes, contests and a moonbounce," said organizer Sharon Hall. "Southern Classic Cruisers will also be at the park with all of their beautiful cars."

Hall said the adoption event was planned as a means to find the animals homes instead of having them euthanized. She also stresses the importance of controlling the pet population. "We are also trying to get the message out to adopt from a shelter and how important it is to spay and neuter your pets," she said. Spaying and neutering animals will decrease the population of unwanted animals as well as the number of animals abandoned by their owners. For more information on the adoption fair, call the animal shelter at 901837-5919. Centennial Park is located at 148 Reeder Road in Munford.

HUFFMAN Continued from Page A1 had to sell his vehicles and has taken a loss. "I had to get rid of the cars myself," he said. "It's hard to sell a car when a guy knows that once he buys it here I won't be able to service it." The last of his new vehicles were finally sold to another dealership. "It's hard to sell a car right now to anybody, even another dealer because he's probably got more than he wants. I sold the last six new vehicles to a dealer in Michigan and that was the end of it." Thirty days later, Huffman Pontiac, Buick & GMC Inc. was no more. "I could have stayed on until October 2010 as part of the original agree-

There were 530 applications entered in the National Law Enforcement Challenge. The award was given based on the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office traffic enforcement activities during 2008. These activities that were submitted in the challenge competition focused on areas of policies and procedures related to current traffic laws, continuing training of deputies, conducting public awareness and education, enforcement activities to reduce traffic related fatalities and conduct traffic surveys to identify trends and areas with traffic issues. ment, but why would you want to stay on?" he said. "We weren't going to get any new cars, so I didn't see any reason for me to be here and keep paying them sign rent every month." Huffman said he was sent literature on 2010 models, and even had to pay for the materials, even though GM wouldn't send him any vehicles. After 18 years, three months and five days as a GM dealer, in which 6,256 new vehicles were sold, Huffman is now in the used car business. "Used cars have always been one of the best sources of revenue, profitwise," he said. "We have 40 units now and when times get better I plan to have 75 units. That's a big used car lot."

Sheriff J.T. "Pancho" Chumley accepted the National Law Enforcement Challenge award in Denver on Oct. 6. Huffman will still provide service. The company can no longer support warranty services, but now will be able to service all makes and models. "I decided to keep the technicians on. We had a lot of call for it from our customers, so we're going to try it awhile and see if it works." And though the economy may make the future uncertain, Huffman remains hopeful. "A man that's in the car business that's not hopeful for the future won't last long," he said. "You have to be very optimistic in the car business." Huffman Motors is located at 1901 Highway 51 South in Covington. For more information, call (901) 476-8636.

Fulfilling the role of Miss Tipton County By LYNNE ROGERS Special to The Leader Since being crowned Miss Tipton County 2009, Leah Rogers of Brighton has learned to balance school, sorority life and her obligations representing the county. Rogers, a sophomore at the University of Tennessee at Martin, is a dean’s list elementary education major and a member of Chi Omega sorority. The Miss Tipton County Scholarship Pageant provided scholarship money which was used toward her studies. Rogers will be competing in the Miss Tennessee Scholarship Pageant in June 2010. She has appeared at local festivals, the Ruffin and participated in a fashion show for the Tipton County Commission on Aging. “It is an honor to represent the county and I enjoy getting out and meeting the community,” said Rogers. Roger’s platform is the Make a Wish Foundation. “I had the opportunity to be part of granting a wish earlier this year, and the joy it brought to the recipient left an impression on me,” she said. “I knew this was a cause I could continue to support and promote.” Rogers’ first experience in a pageant was the Miss Tipton County Ju-

nior Teen. “I didn’t win any of the pageants I had entered until this year, but I had so much fun I decided I wanted to continue participating. I’ve gained confidence and learned something new at each level.” The Miss Teen/Junior Teen pageants consist of outfits for lifestyle/fitness, formal wear and on stage question. The Miss Tipton County Pageant is a Miss America qualifying pageant and must follow specific criteria. Swimsuit and talent become part of the judging. Rogers believes this may keep some from entering because they think they do not have musical or dance talents. “I won the pageant doing a monologue. The most important thing is whatever you chose to do – practice a lot and perform it well.” There will be an opportunity in January for girls of all ages to participate in a pageant. The Little Miss Tipton County Pageant

will be for ages 0-12 with five age categories on Jan. 9, 2010 starting at 9 a.m. The Miss Teen/Junior Teen Pageant will be the same date at 7 p.m. The Junior Teen category is for ages 13-15 and Miss Teen is for ages 16-18. All of the Tipton County pageants are held at the Historic Ruffin Theater in Covington. Contact Mary Gail Elam, Executive Director Miss Tipton County Scholarship Pageant at 476-9613.

County's heading in the right direction By SHERRI ONORATI sherrio@covingtonleader.com Children are entitled to a free, quality basic education. But for some students, that is all they may receive. If any child fails to acquire the basic skills needed to function as a productive, responsible member of society, society as a whole – not to mention the child – loses. The cost of educating children is far outweighed by the cost of not educating them. Adults who lack basic skills have greater difficulty finding wellpaying jobs and escaping poverty, which helps perpetuate the cycle of poverty. And apparently the lack of education also hinders the economic development of communities. The recent news released during the West Tennessee Economic Summit held last Tuesday at Jackson State Community College was one of hope. Ten West Tennessee counties have pledged to S HERRI O NORATI provide college scholarships through the STEP (Southwest Tennessee Educational Pathways) program for students in the hope of providing businesses with better educated workers in an effort to attract industries to rural areas. Working hand-in-hand with mentoring, the participating counties will work to provide “last dollar” scholarships to fill in the tuition gaps for students after all other sources of financial aid have been accessed. I believe this is a win-win situation. The county receives better educated and functional citizens and businesses receive qualified personnel. Students receive a quality education without going into debt and the opportunity to rise out of poverty. As County Executive Jeff Huffman pointed out, the Tipton County average of adults who have a bachelor’s or higher is only 14 percent compared to the national average of 27.4 percent. Hopefully, the STEP program is our way of catching up.

JUST MY VIEW

Our views New changes coming for Leader website Changes are coming and like the conversion to a weekly edition, it's change we're excited about. The Leader has adopted a new platform for its website designed to deliver news and advertising content to readers in a new, reader-friendly format. We enjoyed the site we've had up for a few years now, but it's time for us to put on a fresh face, bring forth a fresh look and have a site that you'll find is even better than before. That's not, of course, to say we won't go through some growing pains this week as we make the conversion. Please be patient. Moving from a years-old platform with content still buried in the archives to a new format, a new server and an entirely new platform is no easy task. You may experience some moments of discomfort as you work to sort out what the new site offers. And we'll be working alongside you to hammer out any pesky problems you encounter. We ask for your patience because we believe you'll like the reward that awaits. There will be an email being sent to online subscribers explaining how some of the changes work. Accounts will be carried forward, but we do not keep password information on file and a generic password will be assigned to each online subscriber. Once you get into your subscription, you'll have the ability to change the password to something memorable and secure and you'll still have feedback opportunities and the ability to read the entire newspaper online. We moved forward with making the switch and, as already mentioned, we'll probably be making modifications for a few weeks to come, but the new site will offer terrific advertising opportunities for customers and better advertising content as well as some cool new designs and features we couldn't integrate into our old site. Subscribers may not get the customary email about the online edition being ready, but rest assured, it will be online bright and early each Thursday (this week being a possible exception as we work through the transition). We hope you enjoy it. A lot of time has gone into making it friendly for you to use. We hope you enjoy. And if you're not an online subscriber, we hope you'll become one. If you subscribe to The Leader already, all it takes to get your online subscription started is a phone call to us at 901-476-7116. THE LEADER USPS 136-120 “Tipton County’s NEWSPAPER Since 1886”

White House shouldn't make an enemies list In 1969 and during the first half of 1970, I was a wet-behind-the-ears, 29-year-old staff aide in the West Wing of the Nixon White House. I was working for the wisest man in that White House, Bryce Harlow, who was a friend of President Johnson, as well as the favorite staff member of President Eisenhower, and President Nixon’s first appointee. In 1971, Chuck Colson, who was then a member of President Nixon's staff and today is admired for his decades of selfless work in prison reform, presented to John Dean, the White House Counsel, a list of what he called ``persons known to be active in their opposition to our administration.'' Mr. Dean said he thought the administration should ``maximize our incumbency ..... [or] to put it more bluntly''--and I am using his quotes--``use the available Federal machinery to screw our political enemies.'' Now make no mistake, politics was not such a gentlemanly affair in those days either. What was different

Not enough resources to win war Dear Editor: When our soldiers returned from Vietnam in about 1969 and after they became painfully aware that they were being attacked from behind by the anti-war liberals at home. Soldiers were shamefully mistreated and degraded by these people. The majority of us had no choice about our service there. Just exactly how these people were turned against the soldiers, rather than the politicians who made the mess, has always puzzled me. Could it have been the skill of the politicians at the time to turn these peoples anger in another direction? It is obvious looking back that it was simply our governments unwillingness to win the war that caused it to drag on so long, and end in defeat. To win a war requires not only the willingness, but a strong determination to win, to commit the resources to aggressively, persistently and decisively obliterate the enemy, to relentlessly kill them until they surrender or until there is no enemy left to kill. A government that doesn't have the intestinal fortitude to win a war has no business waging a war. A decision should be made to either win this Afghanistan war decisively or bring our soldiers home now. President Obama stated that abandoning the war was not an option. More often than not I disagree with the President's policies; he is an extreme liberal and I am an extreme conservative. It's just that simple. But generally those who disagree

with this president as far as the liberals are concerned are automatically considered racist. How convenient. I agree with President Obama on not withdrawing from Afghanistan so therefore I assume I have been at least temporarily redeemed of my racism at least until I disagree with him again. The similarities between Vietnam and Afghanistan are nothing less than amazing. In Afghanistan, exactly as in Vietnam, we are fighting insurgents, using a bordering country as cover, in difficult terrain, with anti-war liberals in control of government, who are willing to commit enough resources to sustain the war, but not enough resources to win it. To expect a different outcome under the exact same conditions would border on insanity. But let's don't blame our soldiers if Afghanistan turns out badly. If given the resources they will win, whatever their mission Let's keep our eye on who directs the resources. David Nance Trenton Set a Cap on Cap-and-Trade We need your help. Though healthcare has been the primary topic of debate in DC for the past few weeks, climate change legislation has already passed the House of Representatives and is scheduled to move to the Senate this month. At the core of the climate change legislation is a cap-and-trade system to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Under cap-and-trade, greenhouse

gas emissions, including carbon dioxide, from power plants and other sources would be required to stay below a set limit—the cap. All emissions would then have to be accounted for by allowances issued by the federal government, which could be swapped and sold—the trade. While we are certain that this legislation will make electricity more expensive, no one, including Congress, seems to know how much. If the U.S. Senate approves a capand-trade system as part of a climate change bill it is essential that it include a cap on the bill itself, a limit to how much electricity prices can rise. We are asking Congress to consider the cost of this legislation and guarantee that electricity prices won’t rise beyond the reach of the average American household. Southwest Tennessee Electric and other utilities across the nation have been working hard to make sure these concerns are raised, and we need your help. More than 3,000 Southwest Tennessee Electric members like you have joined the Our Energy, Our Future™ grassroots campaign, demanding that elected officials keep consumer interests in mind. Their voices had a major impact this summer, as the U.S. House passed a climate change bill that included more than $3 billion in rate relief for co-op consumers from initial proposals. Still, that bill fell far short of being fair to consumers. As the climate change debate moves to the U.S. Senate we have another opportunity to make improvements—and you can impact the outcome.

The President has not stopped blaming banks and investment houses for the financial meltdown even as it has become clear that Congress played a huge role, too, by encouraging Americans to borrow money for houses they couldn’t afford. He was “taking names” of bondholders who resisted the GM and Chrysler bailouts. Insurance companies, once the allies of the Obama health care proposal, have suddenly become the source of all our health care problems— because they pointed out, again correctly, that if Congress taxes insurance premiums and restricts coverage to those who are sicker and older, the cost of premiums for millions of Americans is likely to go up instead of down. Because of that insubordination, the President and his allies have threatened to take away the insurance companies antitrust exemption. The president himself, in his address to Congress on health care, threatened to “call out”

Just keep drawing Growing up in the country a million miles from the nearest town doesn’t provide a to’ sack full of modern facilities. For several decades, we drawed our water from a deep well right outside the back door. At least I didn’t have far to tote the half full five-gallon slop buckets strategically positioned on the back porch table. Friends, the metal well bucket chain was wrapped around the stob juttin’ from the framework supports. This kept the bent, dented and partially rusty bucket from flying down the dark, wide open cavern that held our cool, sweet tasting clean, clear country water that we loved. Especially, on a blazing, hot, miserable summer day. As a pup I was respon-

ENEMIES Continued from Page A4 members of congress who disagreed with him. This behavior is typical of street brawls and political campaign consultants. It is a mistake for the President of the United States and the White House staff. If the President and his top aides treat people with different views as enemies instead of listening to what they have to say, they’re likely to end up with a narrow view and a feeling that the whole world is out to get them. And as those of us who served in the Nixon administration know, that

sible to keep a full bucket of water on the back porch regardless. Can you remember the silver dipper hanging over the side of the bucket with the crooked end for drinking? Most handles had a hole drilled allowing you to hang the miniature ladle on the nail. A good fresh dipper of water, oft times warm settin’ on the back porch was a delight for a country boy. We kept a worn out dishrag thrown over the top of the bucket to keep bugs, ‘skeeters’ and flies from floatin’ in the water. But, sometimes the rag was so thin; the thirsty varmints drilled through and slurped their refreshment fill. Neighbor, if you were not country, this may seem a little unsanitary, but not to us. What did we do?

No problem! Just ease over to the slop bucket on the back porch located right beside the back screened door and skim off a little contaminated buggy water and take a cool refreshing sip. Mighty fine, refreshing and above all, mighty good! Another chore was to have water to wash our face and hands when we came in from working. A sixteen-penny nail was driven into the joist right above the wash pan for convenience to hang the big old rough towel. I think Daddy bought the old dish pan from Davy Crockett on one of his bear huntin’ tours. The white enamel pan with the inch rim even had a hole drilled in case someone wanted to show off and hang this

can get you into a lot of trouble. As any veteran of the Nixon White House can attest, we’ve been down this road before and it won’t end well. An “enemies list” only denigrates the Presidency and the Republic itself. These are unusually difficult times, with plenty of forces encouraging us to

disagree. I offer the Obama administration a gentle suggestion that it not start calling people out and compiling an enemies list. The administration needs to push the street-brawling out of the White House and work together on the truly presidential issues: creating jobs, reducing health care costs, reducing the debt and creating clean energy.

a welfare line. ‘Rabbit’ told me the water got low in the buckets one time and Mr. Solon warmed ’em britches. Never happened again. That’s called a down-home Southern. (attention getter ) Neighbor, I kept the galvanized water buckets full on the back porch for Momma to cook with and wash the dirty dishes. At an early age, as soon as the slop bucket got half full, (that’s all I could tote), I had to empty it in the hog trough. I think I (drawed, drewed, drew, maybe yanked, pulled) that cylinder well bucket so many times the Mis’sippppi River must have dropped two inches a day. I believe the term, “c’mere little water boy” originated in Rosemark.” My Fellow Southern Americans, can you imagine any youngsters today having to draw water? They might want to draw on a computer or draw sumpin’ on a brick wall

called confetti. I’m not saying what is right or wrong! But, that’s the way ‘pore’ folks had to survive if you wanted cool, clear water. Now a days, just turn on a spigot and splash water all over the porcelain or metal sink. Better still, instead of drawing water, they’d just run to the sto’ and buy some plastic bottled water. Just think, they don’t know what they are missing! If you ain’t country, it just don’t make sense…. GLORY!

PET OF THE WEEK Oscar was rescued with his mom Opal and sister Olivia. They were found as strays hanging out at a football field. Oscar and Oliva are in a wonderful foster home now and are doing great. Opal has recently been adopted. Oscar is a sweet and playful pup who is grateful for the TLC he’s receiving now. Oscar has been neutered and is up to date on his annual shots. He will likely be medium-sized dog, but shorter than the average coonhound. (Mama looked more like a corgi mix.) Oscar and his sister are both looking for their “fur”ever homes!They are both ready for adoption If you are interested in adopting Oscar, please go to www. covingtonanimalrescueeffort.com and click on the “adoption procedure” button. Copy and paste the questions and email them to the address given. Please give detailed answers so we will be able to get a feel of what kind of enviroment our rescue will be going to. We will review the application and get back to you in 2-3 days. Or you can contact Sarah Sullivan at 901-634-2392 if you would like to give Oscar his fur-ever home!

pan on a nail right beside the hand towel. Over the years the wash pan was dropped a few hundred times, chippin’ the enamel, but it still held water. One thing I learned real fast. When you got through washing yo’ face, don’t sling dirty water all over the table and the floor. Momma would throw a Southern hissy (that’s bad) and supervise the cleanup right then and there. Naw Suhh, now, not later. As we say in the illustrious South. (That’ll break a speckled hound dog from sucking hen house eggs!) Some of the families in our community were big farmers and come dinner time, the back porch got full real fast. Arvis had to draw water for two fivegallon buckets and make sure they were plumb full, with a silver, bent-handled dipper in each. Mr. Solon, Arvis’ Daddy, worked several hands and come dinnertime, no one was going to waste time and stand in

'Holy' moments surround us You don’t have to be religious to know that there’s something bigger out there, often in plain sight. In the movie The Shawshank Redemption, Tim Robbins' character serves a life sentence for a crime he did not commit, but he eventually escapes through the prison's sewer system, makes it through the outfall pipe and collapses in a river. He staggers to his feet, and in a deafening downpour, lightning flashing around him, he stumbles through the water from the earth and the sky, takes off his prison clothing and heads toward freedom. When I first saw that scene, all I could think of was one word — baptism. He had just crawled through some of the worst muck imaginable. He had just lived through the worst life imaginable. And now he's in the water, shedding his old self. I know that not everyone thinks "baptism" when they see that scene. Baptism (stating our spiritual identity) is one of seven ancient sacraments that organized Christianity has recognized for thousands of years. Along with Holy Orders (or what I see as vocation or our purpose in the world — not the same as occupation), Confession (revealing our inner lives), Confirmation (commitment to spiritual depth), Marriage (experiencing the shared life), Extreme Unction (recognition of moving from this stage to the next) and the Eucharist (food that represents life, death and resurrection), the sacraments have been celebrated as means by which we experience the presence and grace of God. They're usually conducted during formal occasions, dispensed by religious officials to the rest of us non-professionals. I've been thinking about them differently, these days. Maybe it's because my young-adult son just moved to a country experiencing significant political unrest, and I'm looking at the world more closely for evidence Curtis Tire and Auto Services • Bargain Tires New & Used • Brakes, Tune Ups, Oil Changes • Auto Detailing • Mechanic on Duty • Install Motors Curtis Pettigrew • Install Transmissions Owner

of that presence and grace. Or maybe it's because we're in that season between official holy seasons — Yom Kippur last month and Christmas on the way. I have decided that thinking about these holy days and moments only in organized religious settings is a missed opportunity. Throughout civilization, people have looked for ways to experience the sacred and holy. Christians go to church no matter how boring it is, Hindus plunge into the Ganges River no matter how foul it is, Muslims make pilgrimages to Mecca no matter how far and crowded it is. "So it is that monks kneel and chant, that Jews eat a Passover meal, that Polynesians dance, and Quakers sit still," writes Joseph Martos in Doors to the Sacred. "In themselves they are just locations, activities, things. ... In this case they are all sacraments, symbols of something else which is mysterious and hidden, sacred and holy." Haven't we all been part of conversations where they somehow take on a deeper dimension, even though it's just two people talking? It's as if the two (or more) people tapped into something much bigger than themselves. It happened toward the end of the movie Away We Go, where the couple (played by John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph) expecting a baby makes promises to each other. But because of the camera angle from above, it is clear that they are making those promises to the universe as well. It's both private and cosmic. Watching it, I thought of the sacrament of confession. And haven't we all had meals with friends or family where there was another level to that experience, and we didn't want to leave the table because of that additional Presence? I've had Eucharistic moments at picnic tables, restaurants, kitchens and the beach. As we become aware of that additional dimension, those moments take on the quality of the holy.

They're thin spaces where the distance between this world and a bigger unseen world seems to briefly disappear. You don't have to be a person of a particular faith to sense that there is more going on in this world than just the activities we experience with our senses. Call it God. Call it spirituality. Call it whatever you like, but it's unmistakable. With my faith, seeing the day's events through the prism of confession, holy orders, baptism and other sacraments gives me lenses to see those events for what else they are. And it's not just for characters in movies. When I taught my kids how to ride a bicycle, running alongside them holding on to the seat, then holding on less tightly, still running, then letting go altogether, I remember raising my fists in triumph as my son, then my daughter, rode away without me. I cheered at their achievement but had tears running down my cheeks. In a sense, I was grieving the fact that they were leaving the life that we knew (where my wife and I were responsible for their transportation), and heading into the unknown. That's the sacrament of Last Rites, too — experiencing something Transcendent, leaving one world for a bigger one. Our conversations, meals, jobs, transitions point us to something bigger than ourselves. Or at least they can. Seeing them as sacraments helps move us from the known to the unknown world. Whether we see the sacred and holy in everyday life is not a matter of whether it exists. Wearing the lens of the sacraments can show us that it has been there all along, hiding in plain sight. Dean Nelson is the founder and director of the journalism program at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. His recent book is God Hides in Plain Sight: How to See the Sacred in a Chaotic World. His website is www.deannelson.net.

Highly-prized duck call sold in Covington By SHERRI ONORATI sherrio@covingtonleader.com

“We have an opening bid of $500!”

With those words, the bidding frenzy started and less than 90 seconds later it finished when the winning bid was announced and then the crowd erupted into cheers. $7,450. The item? An approximately four inch duck call made by world renowned master duck call carver John E. Jolly, 1904-1989, in the late 1930s. The winning bid was placed by Jerry Copeland, a Memphis resident and avid collector of duck calls at the monthly auction held by Brooks Auction held in Covington. “For true collectors, this call is the Holy Grail,” said Copeland, owner of Copeland Estate Sales. “It was hand-carved specifically for Vernon York and it’s signed by Jolly.” The call was one of several placed in the auction by York’s 82-year-old son, Cordra. Brooks has been selling items for York for several years, remnants of York’s family sporting goods store, York Arms Company, once located in Memphis. The well-known and popular sporting goods company had been in business for several decades. Copeland came to the October auction after seeing the listing for the calls and he was surprised to find there wasn’t more competition for the rare Jolly call. “If they had found it on the internet, they would have been here from all over the world,” he said. “Anybody who is a true collector would have been here.” After the auction, Copeland was astonished to find out just who he was bidding against. “Folks, I just found out this is Mr. Fred Jolly, son of the man who carved that beautiful duck call,” announced Brad Brooks, auctioneer and owner of Brooks Auctions to a stunned crowd. The duck call, made of walnut and cherry, was made specifically as a gift to Vernon York, a friend of John Jolly. Made in what is now known as the Jolly style, the call has four teardrop checkered sides, decorated with mallards and wood ducks and a highly unusual pintail. Jolly, would paint the ducks using toothpicks. Unbeknownst to Copeland and Brooks, Jolly was in Covington to try to win his late father’s gift. “Oh, I wanted it bad,” admitted Jolly. “This call was very unusual. It has this duck here with it’s wing back behind it, I’ve not seen another duck of daddy’s like that.”

Jolly told Copeland the call he had just purchased was made in the late 1930s. “It was one of the first ones he made,“ explained Jolly. “This call was probably made between 65-70 years ago. I was with him and remember when he gave it to him. This man owned the York Arms Company, the only sporting goods company in Memphis. I used to go up there with daddy and he sold daddy’s calls for $2.50. I was a little bitty tot and I asked him why he only got two dollars and a half for the plain ones and he got nothing for that one, and he said, ‘son because that’s my friend and I made it for him as a gift.’ I was probably 7-years-old.” It was during the Great Depression that carving duck calls really took off. Many of the top makers, including John Jolly who was once a crane operator, worked on the railroad and they would carve their masterpieces while on the trains. “He came to Memphis in 1930 and he went to work for the Overton Park Zoo making birds,” said Jolly. “He was called the bird man. He would carve geese, mallards and quails on to his calls. They were beautiful. He’s made calls for Dwight Eisenhower and Arthur Godfrey and all the mayors in Memp h i s

back then.” Jolly was surprised at how high the bidding went for his late father’s duck call. But it’s not the first time a John Jolly call sold for that much money. During the Callmakers and Collectors Association of America’s 2005 George Campbell Memorial Auction held in St. Charles, Ill. in April 2005, a John Jolly duck call made for George Mitchell sold for $7,500. After adding in the buyer’s premium, Copeland’s Jolly cost him more than $7,800 but to him it was well worth it. “I’ll probably never get rid of it. It will probably go

to my son and go right down the line,” Copeland remarked after the auction. The price of the call depends on who made it, the scarcity of the piece and the condition. “My daddy made that call just for Vernon York. He sold daddy’s plain calls and daddy sold his decorated ones. The first ones he made were in 1928 and he sold it them for $25 and the last one he made he sold for $25. He’d turn over in his grave if he knew what it sold for. But that sure is a dandy,” he added, his voice breaking. “I sure would have loved to have gotten that.” Although Copeland feels bad that Jolly didn’t win the auction, he said he has mixed feelings about the outcome. “I didn’t know who I was bidding against, so that was probably to your disadvantage,” he told Jolly while explaining how much winning the call meant to him. The younger Jolly followed in his father’s footsteps and began making his own calls at 15. John Jolly’s greatgrandson, Jay Jolly, also makes his own calls, keeping with the family tradition. “My calls ship all over the United States,” said Jolly, who lives in Proctor, Ark. “I put a lot more on them than he did, from rattle snakes and beavers to alligators, but everybody that I ship to ask if I have a John Jolly call or if I know where to get a John Jolly call. That is an exceptional call right there. That wasn’t the run of the mill call. To me its very special and I sure do wish I could have gotten it..”

her brother, Claud Hill, as accomplices but during the police interrogation, Johnson told the officers where to find the gun and the money. He also claimed full responsibility for the crime and because there was no evidence against the Hill siblings, they were let go. The murder created a lot of excitement 112 years ago, and fearing vigilante violence from the community, Sheriff Lauderdale had the prisoner held at the Shelby County jail until his trial in October. The Tipton Weekly Record reported in its Aug. 13, 1897 edition, “The circumstantial evidence taken in collection with the confession seems conclusive of the Negro’s guilt, and as there can be no plausible palliation nor hope of pardon, we think the people can well afford to quietly await the action of the court and jury. Both the crimes for which he must stand his trial are of the most heinous nature and if the jury that tries him is satisfied of his guilt, he will probably suffer the extreme penalty.” News of the murder reached Atlanta, Ga., where The Atlanta Constitution reported on Dec. 18, 1897, “William Johnson died on the scaffold at 12:10 o’clock this afternoon with Sheriff Lauderdale officating. The condemned man walked quietly from his cell to the scene of the hanging, made a full confession and died with a smile on his lips. Company R National Guard, the State of Tennessee, was present to protect the prisoner had there been signs of lynching, but the soldiers boys were not needed. The crime for which William Johnson was hanged was the cold blooded murder of Farmer Walter Boyd, of Idaville, Tipton County, Tennessee, Aug. 5th last. The only justification the negro offered was that he heard Boyd had threatened him.” Reportedly, Johnson’s hanging was the last public hanging held in Tipton County.

Nonagenarian center of art exhibit Dyersburg – Starting Thursday, Oct. 26, a vibrant, colorful exhibit of digitally enhanced photography will be displayed at the DSCC Jimmy Naifeh Center at Tipton County. The 16 pieces of art were done by 98 year-old Memphis resident Mahaffey White. Featured among the works are studies of flowers that have incorporated images from the artist’s life. “All media present their own kinds of challenges, possibilities and limitations,” said White in an artist’s statement written for the exhibit. “The camera, available to everyone, makes us all a ‘picture taker.’ The artist uses the camera differently, as a tool-like a brush, a chisel, a torch or a metal plate – a tool that has its own limitations and creative possibilities. This is the way I perceive and use the camera.” When seen from a distance, the pieces appear to be works in watercolor. Upon closer inspection a viewer will discover details that give the images deeper meaning. White formerly worked as an art instructor at Shelby State. After her retirement in 1981, she returned to the college to take art and photography classes. Over the last five or six years, digital photography has been her preferred medium. The opening reception for the exhibit will take place on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. in the Academic Building of the DSCC Jimmy Naifeh Center. The exhibit will be on display through December 19.

Local dentist taking a stand against sweets COVINGTON – What's a ghost's favorite candy? BOO-able gum! One area dentist is redefining the phrase "put your money where your mouth is." This Halloween, trick-ortreaters can bring their excess candy to Wrather Dental Center and receive $1 per pound. Dr. Roy A. Wrather is leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars in exchange for cavity-provoking candy, which will then be shipped overseas for troops. "Ditch that candy, that's what we're saying," said Wrather. "Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost." Global sugar consumption for children increases by about 2 percent

annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, said Wrather. He encourages parents to care for their child's teeth more than ever. "Candy, as well as hurting children's teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain," he said. "In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces." Candy will be collected at Wrather Dental Center, 720 W. Sherrod Avenue, on Monday, Nov. 2 from 5-6 p.m. The candy must be unopened. Wrather believes his Cash for Candy program is a win-win situation. "Children can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating and now their piggy banks will benefit as well." For more information, call 901-4768121 or visit www.wratherdentalcenter. com.

Governor announces millions in stimulus funds

Grants to Assist Local Governments in Reducing Energy Consumption and Fossil Fuel Emissions NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Governor Phil Bredesen and Commissioner Matt Kisber of the Department of Economic and Community Development announced today that $9.3 million in federal stimulus funds will be available to small- and medium-sized cities and counties through the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program. The competitive grants are available to assist local governments in conserving energy and reducing fossil fuel emissions. “I am very pleased these Recovery Act dollars are available to help local governments become more energy efficient,” said Governor Bredesen. “I have emphasized how important I believe it is for government to lead by example at the state level when it comes to conserving energy. Now our local governments will have the same opportunity to promote energy efficiency in their own communities.” Areas of funding that will be given priority include: developing an overall energy efficiency

and conservation strategy; retrofitting existing buildings with cost effective energy efficient measures; implementing renewable energy technologies on government buildings; and replacing traffic signals and street lighting with energy efficient lighting technologies. “The EECBG program will allow local governments to make strategic decisions on how best to reduce energy consumption,” said Commissioner Kisber. “The cleanest energy of all is the energy we don’t use, and these grants will give our cities and counties the tools they need to conserve.” The 17 largest cities and 10 largest counties in Tennessee may apply directly to the U.S. Department of Energy for EECBG funds. All other cities and counties may apply through the state of Tennessee by 5 p.m. CST on Dec. 31. Applications and more information are available at http://tnecd. gov/recovery/eecbg.html. The maximum grant amount will be $100,000 and partial funding may be awarded.

ECD will host two application workshops on Nov. 2, in Nashville at the Ellington Agricultural Center from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., and again from 1 – 4 p.m. CST. The meeting will focus on the guidelines and application process and offer suggestions for making an application more competitive. Applications will be scored based on the local government’s strategy, feasibility, readiness to proceed, impact, partnerships and the ability to extend funding impact beyond a one time use.

Military Matters Cadet Matthew T. Luman Matthew T. Luman graduated from the Army ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) Leader Development and Assessment Course, also known as “Operation Warrior Forge,” at Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Wash. The 32 days of training provide the best possible professional training and evaluation for all cadets in the aspects of military life, administration and logistical support. Although continued military training and leadership development is included in the curriculum, the primary focus of the course is to develop and evaluate each cadet’s officer potential as a leader by exercising the cadet’s intelligence, common sense, ingenuity and physical stamina. The cadet command assesses each cadet’s performance and progress in officer traits, qualities and professionalism while attending the course. Cadets in their junior and senior year of college must complete the leadership development course. Upon successful completion of the course, the ROTC program, and graduation from college, cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army, National Guard, or Reserve. The cadet is a student at the University of Memphis, Tenn. He is the son of Cyndi and Eric Hogue of Munford and Michael and Becky Luman of Memphis. He is the grandson of Ernestine and the late David Luman

W Law Firm

of Memphis, Pat Baker of Rossville and Sara Baker of Covington. He is the brother of Caitlin Luman of Memphis and Jackson and Dallas Hogue of Munford. The cadet is a 2006 graduate of Gateway Christian School, Memphis. Seaman Brandon K. Goodson Navy Seaman Brandon K. Goodson, son of Linda F. and Jeffery A. Goodson of Brighton, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Goodson completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly ‘’Navy’’ flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor. Goodson is a 2009 graduate of Brighton High School.

Preschoolers learn about fire safety By SHERRI ONORATI sherrio@covingtonleader.com October is fire safety awareness month when fire departments across the country visit children to help educate them on the prevention of fires and how to react during a fire. Lt. Richard Griggs, Covington Fire Department and Sparky, the Fire Dog,

was on-hand at the Tipton County Public Library this month to talk to Tipton County pre-schoolers and their parents about fire safety. Fire prevention week was Oct. 4-10, but fire safety is applicable all throughout the year. This year’s theme is “Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned!” For more information on fire safety, visit the National Fire Protection Association at http://www.nfpa.org/.

Park and Rec to sell Sonic cards By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com MUNFORD – Realizing a need to illuminate Valentine Park's soccer fields, the Munford Parks and Recreation Department has been raising funds to purchase lights. Last year, Atoka's Sonic Drive-in donated coupon cards to the department to aid in fund-raising, director Glenn Beard said. "We've bought them in the past, but they donated them to us to sell," he said. "They cost five dollars, but you really save more than that with the coupons." Sonic's Community First Value Cards contain 10 peel-off coupons which give the bearer discounts and free menu items such as buy one, get one free Sonic burgers, single topping sundaes and extra long chili cheese coneys. Popular Route 44 drinks are also offered at a discounted price with the

coupons. Cards are currently on sale during MPR events such as soccer games. Proceeds will fund the purchase of lighting for the soccer fields, which will extend use on the fields. Beard said many soccer teams find it difficult to practice in the fall as Daylight Savings Time ends. Additionally, once the fields are lit, games may be held in the evenings. Though they are awaiting bids, Beard said lights for the outer fields will cost approximately $10,000. For the smaller, interior fields, the department will use lights which have already been donated. Thus far, the Sonic cards have brought in approximately $7,000. Cards may be purchased at the parks and recreation office or from anyone who coaches an MPR team. For more information, call 901-8375965 or visit the parks and recreation office at 63 College Street.

Bulldogs spoil senior night for Chargers By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader CHS had one bit of good fortune last Friday night. The cold rain and wind held off until the 35 senior golfers, cheerleaders, band members, football players and their parents could be honored in pre-game senior night ceremonies. No sooner than the game kicked off, however, the miserable weather kicked in with a vengeance. For a quarter, CHS held itsown with the powerful and second ranked Bulldogs and came within a whisker in the period of taking the lead on them, but, it was not to be. Milan showed why they are where they are in 2010, utilizing a potent running and passing game to score in every

quarter to defeat CHS 40-7 in the final home contest of the season for the Chargers. “I thought that we played with a lot of effort and that our kids played hard,” said Coach Marty Wheeler. “Once again we did not take advantage of a couple of offensive opportunities and when you don’t do that against a team like Milan, it costs you.” Milan could move the ball and the Chargers made too many mistakes to win, he went on to say. Move the ball they could, scoring six times, four on the ground and twice via the pass. The Bulldogs all everything back Jabronski Gilbert scored in the first and third quarters on runs of 10 and eight yards. He had 115 yards rushing on

the night on 16 carries. Tim Adkisson, a flanker also had two touchdowns, tallying once on a 16-yard run and once hauling in a 5-yard pass from quarterback Zach Ryan for a score. Ryan also tossed another TD pass and Milan scored on a 75-yard run by Ryan Nance. CHS got on the board following an 85-yard drive in the fourth quarter. Starting at their own 15-yard line mixing the pass and run with Britt Dunn under center, CHS moved resolutely down field to score with the touchdown coming on a 6-yard scamper up the middle by Hunter Deverell. Bishop Davis’ PAT provided the final margin. CHS is 2-7 for the year. The Chargers hit the road for the final game of the 2010

season tomorrow night at Martin Westview. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. MILAN/CHS STATS First downs CHS - 8; MILAN - 11

yds; Hunter Deverell - 5 for 27 yds & 1 TD; TOTAL: 35 carries for 138 yds Milan: Jobronski Gilbert - 16 for 115 yds; Total: 35 for 266 yds Total yards CHS: 193 MILAN: 406

Gearing up for Brighton wrestling By LOREN GAMBRELL Special to The Leader With the high school football season coming to a close, many are anticipating what’s coming next in the sports world. One answer to that question is Brighton wrestling. With wrestling just around the corner, many members of the wrestling team are training, preparing and setting goals for the upcoming season. While we have been sitting in football stands, these guys have been working out and running to get into shape so that they can take down their opponents and pin them this season. I had an opportunity

to converse with C.J. (Coy) Ballard, a senior at Brighton High School and captain of the wrestling team. C.J. expressed his goals and his season outlooks. This is what he shared, “I expect to have a strong season this year, and be in the top three in my weight class, he said. I have worked hard to be where I am, and I plan to succeed. My goal is to place at the region tournament and go to state.” I also had an opportunity to speak with C.J. Grandberry and discovered his outlook. “I feel like I let the team down by not winning more matches then I did last year; therefore, this year is going to be a whole lot better.”

Members and supporters of the 2009/10 Brighton wrestling team Grandberry’s goal this season is also to make it to the individual region tournament and qualify for state. Being Brighton’s wrestling team’s journalist, I have noticed these young men work very hard at their form and technique, way before the season even starts. Their passion for this sport is

unbelievable. They strive to do their best, even at workouts and conditioning before the season. “I love the combat of the sport,” says Ballard, “and I love to compete.” If that’s not a determined wrestler and captain, I don’t know what is. “Wrestle to win,” said Scott Smith, a junior in

his second year on the team. He also talked with me about his upcoming season. The wrestlers work very hard toward their goals, and many times have reached them in years past thanks to their hard work, determination, perseverance and coaching.

Brighton High School’s wrestling team is anticipating an outstanding season, so please keep them in your thoughts and maybe make it to a match or two. I’m sure the coach and the wrestlers would absolutely eat up the support you give them!

Chad Lewis and Olivia Fowler pose in front of the TSSAA sign in Murfreesboro.

Lewis, Fowler fare well at state Covington High School was well-represented last week at the Class A-AA State Golf Tournament in Murfreesboro. Senior Chad Lewis, the Region 7A-AA champ, made his first trip to the state tournament and finished in the top 30 with a two-day score of 163 (82-81). “Chad reached his goal of making it to state and proved he could compete with the top golfers in the state,” said Covington golf coach Ken Lomax. “He had a very successful senior year. As

a coach I will miss the leadership he provided this year.” Junior Olivia Fowler made her second straight trip to the state tournament and fared much better this year. She shot a 178 (91-87) to finish in the top 20. She shot a 192 last season at state. “Olivia has shown steady improvement,” said Lomax. “Her scores are proof of that. She had two solid rounds in the state tournament. The most exciting thing is she has another year. She works hard on her game and has a goal of playing college golf.”

Tipton-Rosemark Academy used a balanced attack Friday night at Middleton to win 22-16 and pick up its second win of the season. “We were on the road and it was their senior night,” said first-year TRA coach Jake Linville, who has now led the Rebels to two wins in a season for the first time since 2005. “We had an opportunity to win our second game of the season, which was huge. It was a big win for our program.” The win was far from easy. When Octovious Alexander scored on a five-yard run and added the two-point conversion in the third quarter, the game was tied 16-16. But midway through the final quarter, freshman quarterback Chuck Seagle hit Jacob Cole on a pass that converted a fourth-and-20. Moments later Seagle hit Keagan Bran on a 15-yard touchdown pass for the decisive score. The TRA defense stopped Middleton on their next possession and the Rebels ran out the clock for the win. TRA got on the board first when Nathan Ray scored on a 36-yard touchdown run. Middleton took the lead on an Alexander 45-yard run and twopoint conversion later in the period. Bran scored on a five-yard run the second quarter and Joe Scott Howard kicked a 30-yard field goal to give the Rebels a 16-8 halftime lead. Bran finished with 79 yards on 17 carries and Zac Hodgins added 56 yards on 18 carries. Seagle completed 8 of 11 passes for 86 yards and Dustin Whitlock made some big plays at quarterback when the Rebels ran their wishbone offense. “We had some goals this year to some good things,” said Linville. “This win was really big for our guys.” The Rebels (2-7) will wrap up the season Friday night at home against University School of Jackson.

Charger frosh lose West TN title By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader To say the least, the weather was miserable last Thursday, but those who braved it saw a whale of a football game. The Whitehaven Tigers took the first annual West Tennessee Freshman Football Championship from the Covington Chargers, 18-8, on the strength of a massive line, a punishing back, two really good linebackers and two big plays. There was no doubt on either sideline that they had been in a game however. The CHS freshmen came into the contest undefeated and boasting four shut outs on defense. They gave as good as they got all evening. Leather popped and licks were passed that were felt the next day by both teams. The Tigers drew first blood on a 35-yard run to take a 6-0 lead in the first quarter. The Chargers stuffed their two point conversion attempt. CHS came back to take the lead in the second quarter on a 17-yard touchdown pass from Charger quarterback Kirk Winberry to wide receiver Tyrone Tipton who made a nifty grab at the five yard line and broke away from two defenders to slip into the end zone. Nick Tarry plowed over the goal line with the two-point conversion to give CHS with less than four minutes remaining in the half. Following a three and out for both teams, the Chargers had to punt and disaster struck. The receiver who took the ball on the Whitehaven sideline at the Tigers 25 plowed over three would-be Charger tacklers and around the rest for a 75-yard score and a 12-8 Whitehaven lead. The conversion attempt failed but it proved to be enough. The Tigers added a late but meaningless score for the final margin to close out their season at 8-0. CHS finished the year at 7-1. “The kids played hard and gave it all they had against a big, physical team,” said Charger freshman head coach David Sage. “The defense played particularly well. Gejuan McIntyre had an interception to stop a drive. We had some opportunities but did not quite get it done. It was a great season. These young men should be proud of what they have accomplished.” In post game honors, Nick Tarry was named as the offensive MVP for CHS and Gejuan McIntyre was named as the defensive MVP for the Chargers. On another football note, Coach Sage reported that the flag football league for youngsters, first through sixth grades finished up its inaugural year Monday night. By all accounts, the league was a great success with 90 players participating. Plans are in the works for next year to have a flag and a tackle league.

Brighton defeats Munford, now a win away from state By JEFF IRELAND Sports@covingtonleader.com Horrible weather has not been able to slow down a hot Brighton Lady Cardinal soccer team. Four days after defeating Munford 1-0 in the District 13-AAA Tournament title game, which gave the program and Tipton County its first girls’ soccer district title, Brighton defeated Bartlett Tuesday afternoon in a steady downpour 1-0 in the region semifinals. With the wins, Brighton (11-4-2) moves on to the region title game. The Lady Cardinals will host Arlington today at 6 p.m. If Brighton wins, they host a sectional game Saturday at 5 p.m. with a state tournament berth on the line. If they lose the Lady Cardinals will travel for a sectional game. Brighton’s win over Munford last Friday went into overtime where Chelsea Hirsch scored on a rebound in the 85th minute to give her team the win. Both goalies, Alex Selby for Munford and Shelby Newman for Munford, had solid games. Becky Marks scored in the 24th minute Tuesday for Brighton as Newman and Amy Janes combined for the shutout. If Brighton is able to make the state tournament, it will be the first time a boys’ or girls’ team from Tipton County has done so. “Right now we’re using 13 players a match, making substitutions at the correct times,” said coach Richard Vandergrift. “We’ve been playing in the mud and heavy water just about every game. It gets a little tough on our players for sure.” The season ended for Munford (5-11) on Tuesday with an 8-0 regional semifinal loss at Arlington. Selby had 30 saves for Munford, but the Lady Tigers’ offense was too much. It was the first season Munford fielded a girls’ soccer team.

STUCK IN

Bad Credit Jail?

Former Chargers gathered on Oct. 17 for the first annual softball alumni game. Lady Chargers as early as 1984 participated in the event. The event was sponsored by the CHS Lady Softball Homerun Club.

The Brighton Middle School football team defeated Munford 46-18 to claim the West Tennessee Athletic Conference Championship. The Cardinals also finished the season undefeated. Nick Easley was named the most valuable offensive player. Zac Ballard received the defensive player of the game award. Other stellar performances were turned in by offensive linemen Dylan Taylor and Charles Mosely, quarterback Bobby Holder, linebacker Colton Hathcock, and running backs Blue Currie and Steven Armstrong. The 10-0 Cardinals will play the champions from Memphis for the Sectional Championship. This is the highest rated championship game in middle school. This game will be played on Saturday, Oct. 31 at 1:30 in Brighton.

BMS plays for title Saturday The Brighton Middle School football team will be looking to make a little history Saturday afternoon at home. Georgian Hills and Brighton Middle School will play for the West Tennessee Middle School Sectional Championship Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at Brighton High School. The Cardinals earned the right to play for the title by defeated Munford Middle School 46-18 last week 46-18. Blue Curry and Nick Easley each had two rushing touchdowns in the win over MMS and Bobby Holder threw for a touchdown pass. Stephen Armstrong, Dylan Taylor and Charles Mosley each had big games as well as BMS moved to 11-0 on the season and claimed the West Tennessee Athletic Conference title. This will mark the third straight year that Brighton Middle School has played in the sectional title game, which is final game at the middle school level. “Last year we lost to American Way,” said BMS head coach Larry Williams. “Two years ago it was Ridgeway. This is our third time. It’s a really big deal for us … This has been a great team to coach this season.”

Almyra By Libby Click Hi everyone. First and foremost don't forget to "set your clocks back" Saturday night the 31st. It's that time again. What a week. All the fall festivals and activities all over the county keep a person in the road. What's retirement for anyway? Go while you can is my opinion. However, the price of gas may slow us all down pretty soon. Last Saturday was a very busy day for Charlie and me. Actually it started on Friday. Charlie's high school class reunion get together for Brighton, class of 61, met at the Bald Butcher in Covington for lunch. It was so nice to see everyone and the food was good too. With the holidays on the way, they will not meet again until Jan. 22 of 2010. The location will be at the tea room on the square in Covington at

www.covingtonleader.com

noon. I'm sure there will be many holiday stories. Hope to see you there. The shopping frenzy last Saturday in Brighton at Trust Community Bank of Mason was a tremendous success. Everything was so well set up and beautifully displayed. Later Charlie and I went to the Dunlap fish fry at the First Baptist Church in Covington. This was a program set up to raise money for Dunlap. Everything was so nice. I normally don't eat a lot of catfish, but this fish was incredible as well as the music and we had so much fun visiting with friends. So glad to see some of the residents who were able to be there. Three star fire department There will be a fall festival on Nov. 7. Vendors are needed. Please call Deborah at 288-5353. You sure don't want to miss this one, as it helps support our volunteer fire department.

Salem Presbyterian Church Worship is at 11 a.m. each Sunday morning. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. The men's prayer group will meet Saturday morning, Oct. 31 at 7:30 a.m. at the church. The session will meet Sunday at 2 p.m. followed by the Diaconate at 3 p.m. It was so nice to have W. L. and Sarah Betty Sparkman with us last week. Happy birthdays this week go to Ernest Draffin, Dennis Willey, Ann Erwin, Roger Willey and Christopher Patton. Hope they are each the greatest. Sharon Presbyterian Church Worship is at 9 a.m each Sunday morning. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. We welcome all members, friends and visitors to the fellowship of Sharon ARP.

Dunlap Retirement Center By Kathy Keiter 476-7014 Hello everyone. Sure hope all of you are doing well and enjoying life. Speaking of enjoying something, everybody that came to our fall fish fry Saturday night enjoyed themselves immensely. We had more fish than we did people this year. Last year we ran out, but this year that wonderful Men’s Fellowship at First Baptist Church made sure everybody got all they wanted and more. We even had enough left over to take to the Covington Fire Dept. and then we brought the rest home to Dunlap for those that didn’t get to go. We had 10 of our residents to come and battle what we thought was going to be a really cold night but as it turned out, it wasn’t at all. it was nice! A jacket felt good but it wasn’t completely necessary. Everyone came prepared though! I do want to say thank you so much for the men at First Baptist that put this fundraiser on for us again this year. Y’all do a fantastic job! And oh my goodness the gospel singing groups, Victory Sound, Three for Thee, and New Spirit were absolutely outstanding! Thank you so very much for sharing your talents with us. It was truly a blessing. Also thanks to my board of directors here at Dunlap, you are also a blessing to me and I praise God He is using you to carry on Dunlap Retirement Center. We don’t have any birthdays this coming week but I do want to say happy birthday to one of my PRNs Tricia Alsbrook. Hope you had a great one girl. The only birthday we even have this month is our dear little Mr. Jimmy Jones! His birthday is the 26th which is Thanksgiving Day and also is my sister Lou Ann Cornelius’s birthday that day. We hope you both have a special day! Ms. Mary Moffatt would like to say a special thank you to all the “lovely people” who sent her birthday cards and gifts for her special

Burlison By Eddie Kellum 476-2683 Hello from Burlison. Have any of you ever driven down the Natchez Trace Parkway from the Tennessee River to I40 just west of Nashville? If you haven’t, you should. At this time of the year, you would see some of the prettiest scenery anywhere in the world. There is something to see around every corner and this trip can be made in one day. If you leave around 6 a.m., you’ll have plenty of time to drive the Parkway, stop somewhere for supper and still make it home by 9 or 10 p.m. the same day. It will be a day you’ll remember for a long time to come. If you’re a history buff like I am, you’ll enjoy the stop at Hohenwald, Tenn. where Meriwether Lewis (of the famous Lewis and Clark) was found dead. It was never clarified if he was murdered or committed suicide. At the time Lewis was on his way to the Whitehouse to meet with the President when he

day last week. She said it was so nice to be thought of. And it is, right everybody? My maintenance supervisor, Rob, would like everyone in the area to know about a great place to get your car worked on called Protec. It’s an auto repair business on Tipton Rd. and Hwy. 51 in Munford. Rob Daum and his wife Carla would like to say thanks for fixing her “BABY”, (her Mitsubishi Eclipse GT). Rob says they stand behind their service like no other. He also says you can eat off the floor, it’s so clean. Rob is a mechanic himself so he knows and sees good work like Dean and his wife put out there, so he is very impressed! He also would like to say thank you to NAPA for standing behind their products. You could get a chance to check it out because on Nov. 7 they are having a customer appreciation day with food and entertainment. If you have questions or need their services please give them a call at 837-3030. It’s always good to applaud a good honest business. Maybe that’s where I’ll take mine next time! Everyone needs encouragement! I’d like to say thank you to a couple who came over and donated to Dunlap a nice motorized chair and some very cute and different little trinkets for our beloved “Bingo” prizes. We do play a lot of Bingo out here at Dunlap and they love all kinds of different little items. We do have some vacancies, so if you are ever at that place when you know you want something like this, please let Kathy know, my number is 476-7014. If any of my residents would like to share some of their stories, I’m sure there’s plenty of space. Just let me know!!! That would be fun for the readers! Well I guess I’d better get off her and give someone else some room to write! Have a great week and don’t forget to give someone a hug!

stopped for the night at Grinder’s Inn on the Natchez Trace. Lewis departed St. Louis on Sept. 4, 1809 and a few days into the trip fell ill with a recurrence of malaria. While ill, Lewis stayed at Fort Pickering (present day Memphis) for a few days before departing for Nashville on the Natchez Trace. At the time, one of the nicknames for the Natchez Trace was the Devil’s Backbone. In many places the Trace was more a path than a road. Originally it was used by the Native Americans of the region. When Meriwether Lewis traveled the Trace, it was the main overland route from New Orleans to Nashville. Robbers, thieves and highwaymen roamed the Trace prowling for easy marks. Some of the roughest men around in those days, the River men, who traveled south to New Orleans on flatboats and then returned north, always amassed in packs when they journeyed on the Trace in order to keep safe. Meriwether Lewis left Fort Pickering on Sept. 29, 1809. He was

packing a rifle, pistols, a tomahawk and knife. On Oct. 10, 1809, Lewis and his party of three other men rose to find some of their horses missing. Instead of remaining together, they decided to split up with Lewis riding ahead. Accounts vary considerably as to what transpired next. Witnesses say they heard an argument and then shots. The only written account of this tragic event was by James Neely, a newly appointed Chickasaw Indian agent. He said that Lewis committed suicide. Anyhow, one of America’s heroes, a man that helped open the West and explore America came to his demise here in West Tennessee at Hohenwald in Lewis County which is now named after the famous statesman who lost his life on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Thanks for reading and if you have any information for future articles you can reach me at 901-476-2683 or email me at kellumeddie@yahoo.com. Until next time, have a great week. Eddie Kellum

Atoka By Mabel Smith 837-8017 Dear readers: Here it is the last week of October and fall is here. We have even had some cold weather and Sunday the time changes - and we turn back the clocks and watches. Saturday evening is the time we celebrate Halloween with children’s night out at Nancy Lane Softball Field. All sorts of games and fun and all you have to bring is a can of food for Tipton Cares. Last year there more than 1,000 cans donated. First Baptist Church of Atoka is hosting a childrens choir for children in second through sixth grade directed by Doro-

marathon. They have been in the process for a couple of months. Not long ago my two grandsons Hayden Scott and Matt Scott ran three miles with her. Way to go boys. Our granddaughter Hannah Quinn is now practicing for her basketball season. It won’t be long now, basketball will be our entertainment from several of the grandkids. Oh yes, my daughter Sherri Kidd had her first grade class out to her house over the weekend. They had a cook out, Halloween dress up and David took them on a hayride. They all had a great time. Little Addie had her first sleep over last week. She's having to many "first." I want her to say a baby. She and her friend Charlie Drew Franks stayed up a while I understand. Hope you enjoyed the sunshine while it was there over the weekend. I think the fall is approaching now. I have seen a few beautiful gold and orange leaves. Have a great week everyone.

preaching. Ann Morris and daughter, Jackie Rayburn, went to Mrs. Ashford's in Covington Tuesday and quilted. Margie Zenar visited Mary Cullum awhile on Friday. I want to tell you about an unsung hero. His name is Victor McClung, and lives in Sikeston, Mo. A few years ago he was in the hospital for open heart surgery but had a stroke. He is married and has four children. The younger one, Gabe, came to the hospital and said, "Daddy, I don't want you to die," so Victor started getting the weight off by eating right. He went back to work has since retired. When they had the ice back in the winter they had 14 people at their house for several days. They all came through it okay. No, he never had heart surgery. Mr. and Mrs. David Murray and daughter Opal Murray of Dallas, Texas, came to Tipton County a few weeks ago. They dropped Opal off with friends while they went somewhere else for five days. Charlotte Lawrence got to visit some with her mother during this time. Charlotte Lawrence visited in Covington Friday with Frank and Barbara Migliaccio and held baby Hayden. Harley Asberry and his dad were getting ready to go up the country for the weekend looking for deer. Harley will be three in November. Don Leopard joined his parents, Bobby and Peggy, for some of her good home cooking on Sunday. Peggy also made Charlotte Lawrence some cornbread. I'm sure Bro. Don Prescott is about to wear his hands out washing them to keep the swine flu away.

and his mother. You have been in our thoughts and prayers. The staff, service recipients, parents and relatives held a housewarming party for Jerry Bouwman on Sept. 25. Everybody enjoyed themselves very much. We give our thanks for the many cards and wonderful gifts. You helped to make Jerry’s housewarming party a great occasion for him. We want to welcome David Strahan back from his vacation with his family in Nashville. We missed him very much. TCADC staff and service recipients went to Glenn Springs park for a picnic and to explore the park. Our prayers are with Mrs. Marilyn from the Hebron Church.

a former service recipient from our center. We miss her very much and hope to go visit with her. The Tipton County Sheriff’s Department will be helping us with some much needed yard work. We want to thank them for their help in working on our flower beds and shrubbery outside the center. We want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Terry Catterton for the delicious lunch. The lunch that they provided for Scott’s birthday was very good. The staff and service recipients would like to thank Babette Payne and Kathy Wallace for the delicious cookies that they made at break time.

Jamestown By DarSay Burton 476-1414 Greetings. Soon it’ll be time to bid October goodbye. It hasn’t been too bad of a month, just a raining one. Looking forward to November, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be right around the next corner. October was the month Shiloh CME of Covington was the place for the Tipton County Singing Union of which Bright Hill’s choir is a part. They along with St. Mark AME in Munford and Mt. Tipton CME of Covington meet every three months to praise God in song. President, Evelena Winfrey Sloan is doing such a splendid job filling the shoes of her late father, Walter Winfrey, who served wonderfully, several years ago. Hats are off to president WinfreySloan. T. C. S. U. meets again on Jan. 17, 2010 at Bright Hill, same time 6 p.m. Their little queen for October was our own Taylor Evans, daughter of Stacey Evans Tolbert and granddaughter of Pam Springfield. Bessie Cobbs

of Jamestown is her greatgrandmother. President LaRue and her Jolly Corteria Club ladies are in the middle of their drawing for their club’s annual grocery baskets give-a-way which comes off the week before Thanksgiving. Tickets are $1 and you have two chances at the prize. Contact her or any club member for tickets. October’s club meeting was held in President Albritton’s home in Jamestown. She served a lovely repast, which all of the ladies enjoyed. Missionary meeting was at 5 p.m. last Monday at the center. President Mary Burton and teacher, Willie Mae Burton are doing a wonderful job. The Sherrill family of Jamestown are in the planning stages of their family reunion which will be held Memorial Day 2010. Family chairheads are Glodine Davis, Timothy Burton Sr., Sgt. Barry Sherrill, Debra Elkins, Rev. Kevin King Jr. and Kenney King. Local chairs are Tamera King, Joann Bell and LaRue Albritton. The first official meeting was held on Saturday in Millington. We

Mt. Carmel/Clopton By Elaine Watkins It’s raining - again. Gray and raining. This week’s Wet Farm Report: We got in the field last Sunday and worked four whole days,then it rained on Thursday. We got back in the field Sunday and worked two days and it’s raining. What’s really bad is that they are already forecasting rain on Friday. James and I ate lunch with our friend Michelle Nowak,who lives in Millington now, on Friday, and then hopped n the car and drove to Calvert Cty, Kentucky, to see the family and go to the drivein. My cousin John had emailed me that they have the pizza oven in now and it was the last weekend to be open, so we headed up there. It was cloudy and we ran through little showers all the way up there but it wasn’t raining that night. I told James over the years I’d watched many a show with the windshield wipers going! The pizza was good but I still prefer the hamburgers! We saw Bruce Willis in “Surrogates.” Very strange concept movie. And an animated movie, “9,” that we didn’t get a lot of sense out of, but we were running in and out of the concession stand during it a lot. James doesn’t like animated things anyway. Just as we had gotten on the Purchase Parkway Friday and were nearing the “Welcome to Kentucky” sign, we saw two deer, one on each side of the road. You see a lot of run-over deer on the parkway but they were the only two we saw. We went by the exit to Cairo, Illinois, and James said he’d like to see some of that farming country some time, so after we visited my grandmother, Evelyn Harrington, on Saturday morning, we headed to Illinois.

We stopped at Wickliffe for some ice cream and I asked if we were in Kentucky or Illinois. She said we were in Kentucky, but in just a minute we’d be in Illinois and she was right! I had never been in Illinois. We saw acres upon acres of soybeans and corn still in the fields. Wet up there too. When we got to Cairo, it was nothing but row upon row of fine brick buildings - abandoned. I don’t know if it was commerce problems or being right on the river and it had flooded too many times, but it was really strange. The only business we saw open was Bunge Grain. We never did find any more town. Spooky! As soon as we left Cairo we were in Missouri, so we drove to Sikeston and caught a couple of rolls, then headed home. We were in four states in one day. I like it! This week’s Doxie Report: Sue Albers and her daughter and grandson from Nashville came to pick up the little male pup who will live in Nashville last Tuesday. Well, Sue got attached to the little red male we had left and she took him home! The Albers have three of our pups, one from each litter! She named him right there at the kitchen table: Jethro Leroy Gibbs (Mark Harmon from NCIS)! So then there were two . . . two black females left, one a long-hair. They are looking for a home! Elizabeth went to the doctor yesterday and everything is fine. Fast heartbeat - a little girl? We will find out in November! I was in town yesterday and the whole North end of Covington smelled like natural gas. Before I got out of Walgreen’s I had a headache and when I went outside it was

meet at Miss Sipps. There will be more information concerning this reunion as time goes on. We are praying for the speedy recover of Mama Jennie Stewart, who recently substained a fall at her home. Our prayers are with her during her healing process. According to her family she doing very well. Still in our prayers are, Bessie Cobbs, Doris King, Demetrice Baker, Ruthie Payne, Johnnie Gray, Willie Parthenia Hodge, Lonnie Craig, Jeffery Mosley Sr., Posie Reed, Mildred Reed and family, Joseph Heaston Sr., Isiah Burton Sr. and family, Caesar Burton and family, Franklin Jones Sr., Rev. Pink Sherrill Jr., Vernard “Big Boy” Burton, Joan Burton and family, Connie and Christine Brown, J. C. Heaston, Jessie Lawson, Charlotta Jones, Eddie B. and Flossie Woods, David Sneed, Chrlene Sneed, Jessie and Juanita Heaston, Rufus Garner, Louis “Wolfe” Williamson, Vernie “Son” Barbee, Eula Culbreath and family, Florene Trent, Rudolph Boykins and family, Bubba French and family, Joe Malone and

worse in the parking lot. Drove down to Peebles to return something and everyone was outside and the firetruck was there. Last night Liz called and said at McDonald’s all the employees had masks on! What’s going on?! Larry Whaley Jr. broke his leg and is in our prayers. Misty Jones and her baby are in our prayers, as well as Cathy Murdock, Dale Laxton’s niece, and Louise McDonald. Sympathy is extended to Jeff Phillips and his family in the death of his aunt, Sue Belew, last week, along with Morgan Hampton, who also lost an aunt, Donna Abba. They have my prayers. We welcome Leigh Ann Fuller, Wanda Townsend’s daughter, to our congregation! The Church of Christ’s annual Fall Festival will be Friday, October 30th, 7 p.m., at the home of Jeff and Christie Coughlan. Trick or Treating, kids’ activities, costume and car decorating contests, hay ride, bonfire and “weenee” roast. Bring a pack of wieners/ buns per family and lawn chairs. This is always so much fun! Congratulations to Al Chaney and Shirley Cook, who were united in marriage on Oct. 17 in Gatlinburg! Best wishes to them! Happy birthday this week goes to Colin Clay and Logan Rimmer on October 26th, to Jeff Phillips on the 30th and to Rachel Nance and Bill Murray on Halloween! “Thanks for Reading” this week goes to Jean Jones! Sa-lute! Dont’ forget to “Fall Back” Saturday night before going to bed - an extra hours’ sleep! This week’s Farmers Almanac Quote (actually a joke): What kind of dog would a vampire have? A bloodhound!” Happy Halloween! Bwahahahaha . . . Until next week . . Elaine

on Oct. 28, Peyton Gray IV on Oct. 30, Earnestine Price on Oct. 31 and a belated birthday wish to Kenny King whose big day was on Oct. 5. On Saturday afternoon at Ryan’s Steak House in Millington, I experienced several great treats. Not the food, which of course is always good. I got the chance to say hello to a few of my avid readers. First, Rev. and Mrs. Richard Coe, pastor and first lady (Ruby) of New Hope M. B. Church of Burlison. They were with their members enjoying their church’s annual picnic outing. My cousin associate pastor Rev. Kevin King Jr. and his family along with cousin Eugene Baker, who’s a deacon at the church were also enjoying the day. Next, I had a chance to say hello and as always was so glad to see William O. “Billy” Brooks and his wife, Freddie.

Randolph By Tula Starr Hello Dear Readers, The old man and old woman took a quick trip to Georgia. We went to his 60th graduating class reunion. They had about 20 class members there plus spouses. The last time they met was 10 years ago. There was 40 in his graduating class. Nineteen of them have died. Some were in nursing homes and others in too bad of health to attend. The last reunion the old man’s older brother had was about 10 years ago too. They held their reunion at the nursing home. They fixed a special meal for them all. I thought that was a great idea. It was amazing to hear some of the tales of the 1949 graduating class. Some had memories of having to get out and push the old school bus up the hills. Royston High School is where Ty Cobb, the great baseball player, went to school. In Royston his name is on the Library, the hospital and many other things I can’t remember. Marshall’s father went to school with Ty Cobb. We had to drive through Atlanta, Georgia. It was Saturday morning when we got to Atlanta and the traffic was very light, considering the last time we went through there at 5 p.m. on Friday afternoon. I did not even have to close my eyes......I got to look at all the skyscrapers in downtown Atlanta. There were too many skyscrapers to count. In 1954 I worked in the tallest building in

Mr. Brooks was my George R. Ellis science teacher and his lovely wife, Ms. Freddie taught my four younger sisters and brothers at George R. Ellis Elementary. It’s always good to see good people, especially when they’re happy to see you, and to let you know, how they just enjoy reading each week. This is all for this time, tomorrow is Hallowen, please look out for our children, its their holiday for fun and games, it is up to each of us adults to ensure that it is just that. Remember; With everything seemingly going wrong in the world today, why not do something positive to make it go right? Who knows, you just might be what this old world needs your positive outlook on things, at this time could make a difference. Until next time.

Atlanta....it was 15 stories tall. Now it is one of the smallest buildings. Thanks to Jackie Fincher for the revival held last week at Elm Grove Methodist Church. We were able to attend each session since it is just down the street from where we live. RUMC - Saturday, Oct. 31, at 6 p.m. will have Halloween trick or trunk for all the children. Everyone welcome. Randolph United Methodist Women will celebrate with our annual Christmas dinner on Tuesday, Dec. 15. In the fellowship hall. All men are welcome to come. No gift exchange. Ms. Mary Julia will cater the meal. Reservation required. Homebound focus: Charlene Lott, who lives on Needham Road in Drummonds. Student focus: Taylor Bowers and Christian Sanchez. Taylor, the daughter of Justin and Rene Bowers is a 4th grader at DES. She has two younger sister, Ally and Rayleigh. Taylor will turn 11 on Nov. 9. They live in Drummonds. Christian, who will turn seven in February, is the son of Rodrigo and Christy Sanchez. He has several brothers, Sandros, Morgan, Jordan and Austin. They live in Burlison November birthdays: Juanita Joyner, Nov. 1; Mildred Wiseman, Nov. 11; John Lloyd and Becky Pace, Nov. 12; Ricky Renfrow, Nov. 19; Tyler Cates, Nov. 20; and Vanessa Wilson on Nov. 30. Pray for: Patra Ballard, Louise Bomar, Dorothy Cook, Lois Conger, Edna Downing, John Downing, Charlene Lott, Zadie Pugh, Lillian Ward, and Mildred Wiseman.

Case No. 27,211

ROBERT E. WHITLEY; SHARON (YARBROUGH WHITLEY; AND THE UNKNOWN HEIRS (if any) OF WILLIS YARBROUGH, Deceased

COMPLAINT TO QUIET TITLE Plaintiff, CitiFinancial INC., a Tennessee Corporation, by and through its undersigned attorneys, for its complaint herein, states as follows: This is an action seeking to quiet title in and to the real property at issue herein. The subject real property herein lies in Tipton County, Tennessee. Defendants are residents of this state, have transacted business in this state, or have an interest in, use, or possess real property in this state. Therefore, jurisdiction and venue are proper in this Court. On November 15, 1940, Susan Terry, as the grantor, conveyed certain real property to her brother, Willis Yarbrough, as the grantee, via warranty deed. This warranty deed was recorded with the Office of the Register of Tipton County, Tennessee on December 18, 1940 at Book 195, Page 469. A true and correct copy of this warranty deed is attached hereto and incorporated herein as Exhibit “A”. Upon information and belief, Willis Yarbrough and his wife, Earnestine Yarbrough, died intestate on dates uncertain, but prior to December 3, 1985. Probates were never opened on behalf of either decedent which creates a

potential cloud on title in and to the real property at issue herein. On December 4, 1985, Thomas Bethel executed an affidavit of heirship in which he declared that Willis and Earnestine Yarbrough were survived by eight (8) children as their sole heirs-at-law, said children being Gordon Yarbrough, Lois Barnett, Marcie Williamson, Malcom Yarbrough, Leamon Yarbrough, Ordell Yarbrough, Major Yarbrough and Shannon Yarbrough. The affidavit went on to state that, as of December 3, 1985, three of the aforementioned children were also deceased, providing specifically as follows: Malcom Yarbrough is deceased leaving Kennard Yarbrough as his only issue; Major Yarbrough is deceased leaving Ernestine Jones his only issue; and Shannon Yarbrough is deceased leaving his wife, Pauline Yarbrough, and five children: Tyrone Yarbrough, Arthel Yarbrough, Sharon Yarbrough, Paulette Yarbrough and Clifford Yarbrough. Said affidavit was duly acknowledged and filed for record in the Office of Register for Tipton County, Tennessee on March 10, 1986 at Book 545, Page 493. A true and correct copy of this affidavit is attached hereto and incorporated herein as Exhibit “B”. On November 18, 1999, fifteen (15) individuals (namely Kennard Yarbrough, Ernestine Jones, Pauline Yarbrough, Tyrone Yarbrough, Arthel Yarbrough, Sharon (Yarbrough) Whitley, Paulette (Yarbrough) Alston, Willis C. Yarbrough, Lucille Yarbrough, Robin Yarbrough, Loretta McFarland, Aaron Yarbrough, Hattye T. Yarbrough, Lois Barnett and Mercie Williamson), collectively as the grantors, conveyed the following-described property out of the 1940 conveyance cited in paragraph 3 above (and described in Exhibit “A”) to Robert E. Whitley and Sharon Whitley, husband and wife, as the grantees, via quitclaim deed: Lying and being in th 1st Civil District of Tipton County, Tennessee and thus described: Commencing at the centerline intersection of Yarbrough Road and Rhodes Road, said point being the Northeast corner of Willis Yarbrough’s tract recorded in Deed Book 195, Page 470, of which this partition is a part, then South 09 degrees 29 minutes 32 seconds west, 280.94 feet to an iron pipe set in the West R.O.W. line of Yarbrough Road (50 feet R.O.W.), said point being the true point of beginning; then along the said R.O.W. line following three courses: South 05 degrees 02 minutes 44 seconds West, 58.26 feet; South 04 degrees 28 minutes 58 seconds West, 44.40 feet; South 03 degrees 40 minutes 40 seconds West, 69.24 feet to an iron pipe set; then North 85 degrees 13 minutes 12 seconds West, 303.01 feet to an iron pipe set; then North 03 degrees 37 minutes 34 seconds West. 151.06 feet to an iron pipe set; then South 89 degrees 08 minutes 02 seconds East, 305.47 feet to the point of beginning, according to survey of Raymond E. Pittman, TN R.L.S. No. 1414, P.O. Box 1218, Munford, TN 38058, dated November 17, 1999 This property is more commonly known as 451 Yarbrough Road, Covington, Tennessee 38019; and is hereafter referred to as the “Subject Property.” Said quitclaim deed was duly acknowledged and filed for record in the Office of the Register for Tipton County, Tennessee on November 19, 1999 at Book 884, Page 829. A true and correct copy of this quitclaim deed is attached hereto and incorporated herein as Exhibit “C”. On April 26, 2004, for the purpose of securing an indebtedness in the principal amount of $56,820.96, the Whitleys executed and delivered a deed of trust encumbering the Subject Property to B. Hornbreak, Memphis, TN, as trustee for plaintiff, CitiFinancial. This deed of trust was duly acknowledged and filed for record in the Office of the Register for Tipton County, Tennessee on May 5, 2004 at Book 1138, Page 6. A true and correct copy of this deed of trust is attached hereto and incorporated herein as Exhibit “D”. Pursuant to the deeds and the affidavit of heirship cited above, this Court should enter its order declaring fee simple title in and to the Subject Property is in Robert E. Whitley and Sharon (Yarbrough) Whitley. The Court’s order should further declare that the Unknow Heirs (if any) of Willis Yarbrough have no claim, right, title or interest in or to the Subject Property. WHEREFORE, plaintiff requests relief as follows: That proper process be issued for the defendants named herein; That the Court enter an order declaring fee simple title in and to the Subject Property in Robert E. Whitley and Sharon (Yarbrough) Whitley; That the Court’s order declare that the Unknown Heirs, if any, of Willis Yarbrough, Deceased have no claim, right, title or interest in or to the Subject Property; That the Court’s order declare that plaintiff’s deed of trust is paramount and superior to the interests of all the defendants in the Subject Property; and That plaintiff have any and all other proper and equitable relief to which it may be entitled.

The members have isolated themselves on the island to choose the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best and worst mystery novels. But things turn grim after one member announces that his fellow members will all die, and that prophecy starts to come true as all of them start to die mysteriously one by one.

The survivors that are left try to solve the murders using the books of the famous authors as resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Murder by the Bookâ&#x20AC;? marks the first performance of the 20092010 school year by the drama society and tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show will be the last of two shows performed this week.

Crestivew Elementary News Mrs. Cindy Cliftonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third grade class had a student teacher this year, Mr. Bennett Overall. Mrs. Clifton would like to thank him for doing a great job. Her class wishes him well! A note from the Attendance Office: Please remember that regular attendance is crucial to a good education. It is also very important to have your child at school on time every day. The school handbook each student received at the beginning of school states that 4 tardy or early checkouts equals one days absence on truancy reports. It also states that only 10 days

per year can be excused with a parent note, so please remember to send doctor notes whenever possible. CES cafeteria staff would like to thank those who made posters and sent cards to us during National School Lunch Week. We gave out bookmarks to our students. We would like to wish Jill Fisher a happy birthday on Oct. 24. During Fall Break Jill Fisher visited her granddaughter and family in the Carolina.

They have been talking about geometry and shapes in class so students had to use some of these shapes in their drawing of the pumpkin face. They voted on our favorite face that had been drawn. It was the face of a cat!! They then went out to the courtyard and traced that face onto a big pumpkin. The students got the opportu-

nity to help in scooping the inside of the pumpkin out. They carved the pumpkin and set in inside the classroom for all to see! It was a great learning experience and they all had a great time learning about shapes and carving pumpkins! The Book Fair Destination-Reading Around the World was a huge success. We met our goal of selling more than 300 books! Our school collected a total of $908.49.
