Naifeh wins by slim margin By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com An hour into the results of the Nov. 2 election had the campaign of State Representative Jimmy Naifeh sweating it out early. His lead was small. But they got a chance to breathe a sigh of relief when the final tallies of Tipton County came in and the 36-year incumbent won the District 81 seat by only 437 votes. It was his closest race ever with challenger Jim Hardin who won Tipton County over

Naifeh with 53 percent of the vote. However, this was not a big enough margin to account for Hardin’s large loss in Haywood County that helped to push Naifeh to win. Of the 15,028 people that cast a vote for State Representative of the 81st District, 7,730 voted for Naifeh and 7,293 voted for Hardin. Hardin had his biggest gains in the south end of Tipton County in the Brighton area and the more rural parts of the county. However, it was not enough as Naifeh dominated

the Covington polls, coming in with 75 percent of the vote in Northeast Covington. He also won Haywood County by 1,118 votes. “I want everyone to hold their heads up high and know that we, as a team, did our absolute best,” said Hardin to his supporters on Wednesday morning. “Debbie and I are honored to have shared this adventure with such great Americans here in West Tennessee and will cherish the old friendships strengthened through this process and the

Reconstruction the Republicans have control of both houses of the state legislature and the governor’s office after Tuesday’s election. The democrats lost as many as 10 seats and many of the long-time incumbents had to battle out their races well into the night like Naifeh and Rep. Craig Fitzhugh. “It is a rough night for rural democrats,” said Naifeh at his election party. “I have to thank a lot of good people who worked really hard on SEE NAIFEH, PAGE A3

Walker to succeed Walker By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com ATOKA – Nov. 2, 2010 will go down in history as a day of change in Atoka after residents elected the town’s first new mayor since the year man first walked on the moon. Defeating his opponent, alderman Tommy Rogers, W. Daryl Walker won with more than 72 percent of votes. “I’m humbled by the people’s support and I look forward to taking Atoka to another level,” Walker said. “People are ready to have a different change, a different way of doing things.” Walker succeeds Charles L. Walker, to whom he has no relation, who has served as Atoka’s mayor since 1969. During Charles Walker’s decades as mayor, a municipal water system was established, 60 miles of roadways were constructed in the 1970s, several parks were established, the fire department merged with Munford’s fire department, a new post office was built, the wooden bridge over the railroad tracks was replaced with a concrete bridge, the municipal sewer system was established, a new town hall was built, the first fulltime city employees were hired, a full-time police department was established, a new fire station was constructed in the Walker Parkway area, traffic lights came to Hwy. 51, a 16-screen movie theater was

In recent years, the growth in Tipton County has brought many new homes, businesses and jobs to Atoka. In fact, from just 1990 to 2000, the population increased from 659 to 3,235 people. A special citywide census in 2005 reported 6,067 citizens. Atoka saw an increase of approximately 259 residents from 1969 to 1990, but 12 times as many people live in Atoka as did 20 years ago. Walker did not run for re-election and also retired from the county legislative body this year. He served as a county commissioner since 1960. W. Daryl Walker, who will be sworn in in December, said his goal as mayor will be to do what’s best for Atoka. Infrastructure is a top priority.

“I don’t want to annex anything else in until our infrastructure is where it needs to be,” he said. “This was a big concern to the people.” Other priorities include transparency at city hall, planned growth and redevelopment of downtown and an upgrade to the recreational amenities offered to residents, Walker said. Walker, who has lived in Atoka since 1996 and formerly served as principal of Munford High School before moving to the board of education, said he will draw on experiences to help guide him as mayor. “Being principal taught me problem solving, budgeting, counseling and just how to deal with people and bring them together,” he said. Walker also said he hopes the new board of mayor and alderman acts as a team working toward a common goal. “When people don’t care who gets the credit, a city really can go farther. I’m really looking forward to staying on task and doing what’s best for Atoka.”

The Tipton County local elections prove that individual votes really do matter. Many of the local races in the community just came down to a handful of votes on the Nov. 2 election. In the Atoka aldermen race less than 10 votes ELECTION FACTS decided the fate of the final two candidates.

People can come take advantage of many of the sales and discounts the stores will have to offer. If shopping is not in store for some customers, it still gives people a chance to see the new Christmas decorations. The Covington Square has been known for its festive décor during every Christmas season. When Mike Moore, the owner of Buckaroo Hatters, arrived on the Square to open his store he said he remembered driving around the Square at night specifically. “It is one of the reasons I love being here,” said Moore. “I looked at everything and just realized this is what it is all about during Christmas.” There are other stores near the Square in downtown Covington that will also be open and take

Chili Cook-Off set for Saturday Davidson indicted for stealing from school system By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com COVINGTON - Former school board supervisor Dorothy Davidson was indicted by the Tipton County Grand Jury Monday, but she’s still drawing a retirement check for her work in a system she admitted to defrauding. Davidson, who retired from the board of education in June, is accused of embezzling more than $27,000 by falsifying payroll records while supervising the Tipton County School Aged Childcare Program (SACC). According to a report released by the state Comptroller’s Division of County Audit in late September, Davidson changed payroll records to provide payments for a part-time student employee for work at Crestview and Brighton elementary schools that was not done. These payments, said the comptroller’s office, total $5,078.44. The student, who is the son of Davidson’s niece, was paid $884.50 for working at Crestview Elementary from AugustOctober 2009, during the same period of time he was reportedly at football practice. Additionally, the student received payment for work not performed at Brighton Elementary School over 24 pay periods from May 15, 2008 through May 15, 2009. Both Davidson and her great nephew reportedly admitted to the comptroller’s office in written statements that the student never worked at BES. Davidson allegedly admitted to falsifying the payroll records sent to the business office. After learning of the prior payroll irregularities, the school board withheld the student’s final two paychecks totaling $663.56 for the periods ending July 31, 2010 and August 13, 2010. But it doesn’t end there. In September, Dr. Tim

DAVIDSON

Fite, Tipton County’s director of schools, said an internal investigation revealed the embezzlement dates back several years. “Initially we didn’t think it was as big as it was,” he said. “As things evolved, we were piecing things together and they didn’t fit.” This is when, Fite said, the school board asked the state comptroller’s office to get involved. “I never thought she would have done something like this,” Fite said. “But when these things come up, you have a responsibility to report them.” Auditors also learned Davidson paid her niece, who was employed at the Munford Elementary School SACC, more than $22,000 over a threeplus-year period, even though interviews with the site supervisor and other employees at the school suggested the employee only worked there sporadically for a few weeks. Davidson’s niece was hired on Aug. 19, 2002 for employment at MES SACC and other employees told auditors she worked there part-time for a few weeks in the beginning. They also said she was rarely there during most of the time period, often coming in late and leaving early. Davidson also reportedly admitted to auditors falsifying these records. She told auditors her niece worked there for approximately two months in the beginning, however auditors could not determine the reliability of the payroll records.

Records, they say, indicate this individual received 80 payroll checks from Sept. 13, 2002 through Jan. 31, 2006, totaling $22,278.75. Davidson’s niece reported to auditors in a written statement the payments were improper and that the SACC supervisor had submitted them to the business office. Fite said it seemed as if the supervisor falsified the records in transit, after they’d been signed by the school’s site director. The comptroller’s office said due to the written statements and the lack of reliable documentation, the entire payroll amount is in question. “This type of activity cannot be tolerated,” said Comptroller Justin P. Wilson in September. “I commend the Tipton County School System for identifying the misuse of public funds and calling it to our attention. And I would like to commend our auditors for the follow-up work they did on the investigation. Our office remains committed to finding fraud, waste and abuse of taxpayer money throughout the state.” Davidson, 62, retired from the school system on June 30, 2010 and is currently receiving retirement benefits. She was employed with the school system for more than 35 years and was a teacher prior to becoming the SACC supervisor. None of the individuals in question is currently employed with Tipton County Schools or SACC; however, Davidson’s husband remains employed with the school system. It is not yet clear if the funds have been returned. She was arrested Monday afternoon on one count of theft $1,000$10,000 and one count of theft $500-$1,000. She was released on a $5,000 bond Monday. night.

In October, Home Depot and the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #74 announced they will be giving away a grand prize at the fourth annual chili cook-off next month. On Nov. 6, the fourth annual event will take place on the square in Covington and will serve as a fundraiser for the FOP. Organizers have been working diligently with community leaders to bring in prizes for this year’s chili cook-off Late last month, Home Depot donated a gas grill which organizers say will be given away during the event. “It’s going to be the main prize for our drawing,” said Covington Police Chief Bennie Carver. Event-goers can enter the drawing with every ballot they purchase. The cook-off allows participants to taste-test chili cooked by different teams and vote on the best-tasting recipe. It is an annual fundraiser for the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #74. The festivities will be held on the historic court square in Covington. For cooking teams, setup will begin at 2 p.m. For the public, gates will open at 4 p.m. The $5 admission will give persons a wristband, ballot and spoon. This entitles event-goers to taste chili cooked by each of the teams and vote on which is the best tasting. Entertainment will be provided by Ronnie Twisdale, who volunteers his time for the cook-off each year.

“The most important thing to remember is this all goes to the children,” said Carver. “This is something we use to give needy children a Christmas.” Through its fundraising efforts, the FOP is able to provide the gift of Christmas to children in less fortunate families. These children are paired with members of law enforcement and spend a pre-determined amount of money on presents for themselves The amount of money they are allowed is determined by the funds raised during the year. Last year, the FOP raised an estimated $5,000 during the event. Once votes are tabulated, the teams with the top number of votes will be awarded first, second and third place trophies. Additionally, the booth with the best decorations

will receive an award and one lucky person will receive the grill donated by Home Depot, said organizers All money raised during the event will stay in Tipton County and will be used for children who participate in the FOP Christmas for Kids, Carver said.

Mobile meth lab discovered in Brighton By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com BRIGHTON – What began as a traffic stop ended with a hazardous materials cleanup last month in Brighton. At approximately 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 13, Inv. Craig Pifer conducted a traffic stop along Old Hwy. 51 after he observed it traveling southbound in an erratic manner. A quick check of vehicle’s tags revealed it was not correctly registered, Pifer said. Calling the deputies with the sheriff’s office in as backup, Pifer searched the vehicle and located ingredients commonly associated with the manufacture of methamphetamines in addition to drug paraphernalia. This is Brighton’s fourth methamphetamine-related incident this year and Pifer said officers remained committed to keeping citizens safe and the streets free from drugs. “The police department will continue to be actively involved in the finding of this or any other type of criminal activity in Brighton,” he said. “The citizens of Brighton rely on us as law enforcement to keep their families safe and that is what we’re actively out on the streets trying to do.” One male and female were arrested and transported to the Tipton County Correctional Facility. Pifer said their identities had not been released pending a completion of the investigation. “We still need the help from our citizens, so if they observe any unusual type of activity and live within the city limits of Brighton, they need to notify us.” Emergencies should be reported to Central Dispatch by calling 911; the non-emergency line is 901-4754300. Brighton Police Department can be reached at 901-475-6722. Pifer would like to thank officers with the sheriff’s office for their mutual aid efforts. “Your assistance was greatly appreciated and the officers with the Brighton Police Department look forward to working together again to keep our citizens safe.”

Also unopposed and re-elected were incumbent aldermen John Edwards, Tommy Black and Bill Scruggs.

His replacement is Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam who won a resounding victory over Mike McWherter. Haslam carried Tipton County by 68 percent. Naifeh, who was the longest serving Speaker of the House in Tennessee history, will now have to work as the minority party with a Republican Governor. However, Naifeh has 36 years of seniority and plenty of experience of working with the legislature no matter what party has power. His seniority alone will outrank many of the opposing party newcomers. Many supporters at the Naifeh camp suggested some of the reasons for his close win were lower voter turnout than expected from the rain and the fact that this was not a Presidential election. There is also just general disapproval of the national Democratic Party, which trickled down to local elections.

Country Delicacies

SOUTHERN RAISIN' OTIS G RIFFIN

Friends, it sho’ is surprising just how much you can forget, no matter how hard you try to remember the smallest details. If you ain’t country, you don’t know what it’s like gettin’ ready for a good hog killin’. We incarcerated the comin’ butchered hogs in a special pen and fed salty corn, with high protein tankage for a few weeks which sho’ made the meat taste better. There is a larrupin’ difference ’tween slop fed and corn fed meat. Just ask any ‘pore’ old country hog farmer. City folks wouldn’t know the difference from a half shell possum and an armadillo. I’ve eaten souse, chit’lins, brains and eggs, pig’s snout, pickled pig’s feet, and cracklin’ cornbread. I never took a hankering’ to liver and onions although Momma tried and bribed me like a politician to chomp down for the protein but I just finally gave up the ghost. I had better luck tryin’ to understand some northerner from Massachusetts than me gnawin’ liver. No matter how hard you try, it ain’t gonna’ work. Yess suhhh, like trying to put six gallons of juicy black berries in a five gallon slop bucket as it runneth over and gets between yo’ toes. Neighbor, I am so country we had to knock the owls off the gearshift before we could start the truck. But, redneck delicacies will make some high falootin’ folks head for the high level and run through a briar patch squallin’. When you make a political rally, there ain’t no telling what might happen, or what you might hear. Actually you know what you are going to hear but just don’t believe any part of it. Beloved, when I arrived

at the rally, everyone was slickered down like a famous country bootlegger was going to finally get baptized. All kinds of celebrating. The politicians want the visitors to holler and cheer just like they were at a Boer goat ropin’ or a gum stump blowin’ at Mr. Solon’s corn field on Saturday night. Now I’m not ‘gonna’ criticize anyone about their delicacies, but how about this redneck’s preferences? They had some finger food. That don’t sound too tasty to me. Actually I prefer pig’s feet food over fingers or thumbs. I respectfully declined. Then I was directed toward a table with caviar. I enjoy catfish and hushpuppies like any Southern born redneck but I ain’t eatin’ fish eggs or tails. I have had folks tell me some foreigners served fish eyes covered in gravy. Can you imagine one of those eye balls winkin’ at you as you were showerin’ some pepper sauce on them? He could have my cornbread too. This long table had a Navy military creased white cloth stretched real tight with some crackers on a turkey platter that reminded me of the handful Mr. Ben got out of his wide mouthed jar at his Rosemark emporium. When I was a gully jumper, we ate crackers on a sheet of wax paper with our rag baloney and hoop cheese while sluggin’ down with a peach Nehi belly washer. If I splurged a little, a treasured Chattanooga Moon Pie topped off this meal. Now these are delicacies to any country redneck. Neighbor, I ain’t saying what is right, or wrong. All I know is what I have tried and enjoyed. I believe in our comin’ up delicacies and leave the new found stuff to those rich, snooty, city folks. Just send this country boy’s delicacies back home before I die. Country Bred, Hog Fed and When I Die, I’ll Be Southern Dead…. GLORY!!!

Wildlife Chatter: Youngsters control the deer stands This past weekend across the state was Juvenile Deer Hunt. Youngesters from all across the great state dusted off hteir shooting iron and took to the woods. It is a very gracious gift from the state to our children. Only youngsters under the age of 16 could legally hunt deer this past weekend. I garuntee you it was a Trophy Deer. It could have been any size, shape, sex or number of points and it would not have made any difference, as long as they checked in a deer. You shouls see some of the smiles that come with the deer. I did not know the human face could be stretched that far out of shape without sustaining permanent damage. The juvenile deer hunt is two days, on Saturday and Sunday, and is uaully scheduled to take place before the adult deer hunters have stirred the deer up with their ventures into the woods. Saturday morning about 30 minutes before sunrise, until 30 minutes after sunset that night and the same for the next day. It is like a miniature caravan or orange hunters marching off into the woods to do battle with mother nature. And, do battle they do, whereas Mother Nature survives the onslaught, I am also certain that she is glad when it

is all over and will not happen again until January. Buchanan’s Grocery and “Wildlife Chatter” had sponsored “Two Juvenile Deer Hunts” at the Covington First Baptist Church at their “Youngster Wildlife Supper” earlier in the year. The event was held at the corner of Highway 59 and Hastings Way in Covington. Pancho Chumley and his son, Tucker, won one of the hunts and the other family that won was looking at hospital time with one of their folks and could not attend this hunt so we gave them a raincheck for another day. I pulled the duty to escort and guide Pancho and Tucker. Other hunters and youngsters hunting with us were Keith Elzie and his son Bryan, Game Warden Bryan Kellum and recent hunter’s safety graduate Jason Joy and later on Katelyn, Bryan’s daughter. We met at Buchanan’s Grocery parking lot at 5 a.m. to welcome all the youngsters and their dad’s or sponsors and go over some safety rules and deer stand locations. When the question and answer session was over, we said our prayer and headed to the woods. Once in southeast Tipton County, we went to three different locations to find and climb our deer stands. The hunt

was on. About 8 a.m., Tucker bagged a nice doe at about a hundred yards. We saw the doe drop and the impact of the bullets knocked the dust out of the does’s coat so we knew we had a hit. But, we could not find the deer. Everyone joined in the hunt to help find the downed deer, but still had no luck. The next morning was the same but different. The doe deer showed up at 8:26 a.m. and Tucker shot this deer at 168 yards. The impact of the bullet knocked the deer for a loop. We got to the site and no deer again. This time we were able to track the deer and carry it to the checking station at Buchanan Grocery in Mason. While at the checking station, we saw Roy Wrather’s grandson, Sam, checking in a nice six pointer. Also young Carson Waddell had a nice deer with a spike. The last afternoon, we spent swatting wasps and yellow jackets and watching the raccoon. I do not think of two nicer hunters to spend time with in a deer stand

than Pancho and Tucker Chumley. I would be glad to hunt with them any time. Take my advice, if you would like to see a youngster happy, take them hunting or fishing with you and watch their face when they bag a deer or catch a fish. It is magic and if you look out of the corner of your eye, dad has a pretty smile on his face too. Look for the video of these hunts on “Wildlife Chatter TV Show” on KBJ TV Covington and Millington Cable coming in the next few weeks. Call me at 901 476 4601: 476 1764; 485 8767 or email me at arnold@ bullinsurance.com. Or come see us at 216 West Pleasant Avenue in Covington, across from the airplane in Patriot Park. Remember to tune into Covington Cable on Channel 5 in the county and Channel 19 inside the Covington City Limits and/or Millington Cable on Channel 11 on Mondays at 7 p.m.; Fridays at 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 8 a.m. for the very best in outdoor entertainment

Buying at home comes back to citizens By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com As well as generating revenue for local businesses, buying at home also pays for Tipton County education. This month, according to the Covington sales tax report, sales tax revenue for the month of October for Covington is $333,266. Of this total, $163,111 will go to the Tipton County Board of Education. The rest of the county will give $144,000 to the board, all of which stems from the local option sales tax revenue. Unlike many other counties in the state, Tipton has avoided using tax increases directly for education. One of the reasons for this is the local option sales tax, which the public voted on years ago to avoid a property tax increase, according to Covington City treasurer Jere Hadley. Sales

tax is imposed on all retail sales, leases and rentals of most goods, as well as taxable services in Tennessee. Cities and counties have the option of imposing an additional local option sales tax, which goes to the local government. Half of this in Tipton County goes to local education.Therefore buying goods and services in the county comes back to the residents. “When people go shopping in Shelby County they are putting money into the Shelby County schools,” said Hadley. “But when people stay home to shop, the money goes straight back to our schools and the kids that go to school here.” This is good news for Tipton County, since the sales tax revenue is up from a year ago and the Christmas shopping season has not even begun. More people

in the county, especially new residents are staying within the county to buy products according to reports from the Tenn. Department of Revenue. Previously, Covington’s tax revenue went to the Covington City Schools, but since they have been abolished, they go to the entire county. The City of Covington brings in the majority of local revenue (54 percent) since it has most of the business in the county. The next highest gross in tax is from the Town of Atoka, which brings in 20 percent. “People don’t realize what (the city) does for education,” said Covington alderman Tommy Hatcher. “People need to know where this money is going.” For anyone with children in the Tipton County School system, the revenue is going straight back to them.

Buckaroo Hatters brings gun show By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com Buckaroo Hatters is known for its loyalty to the Old West, the Civil War and cowboys as much as it is known for its custom fitted hats. In the tradition of the western lifestyle is glorifies, the store held a Ruger gun show on Oct. 16. in its shop on the Covington Court Square. “It was a way to say thanks to the community,” said storeowner Mike Moore. “I enjoy being on the Covington Square. There is a great small town atmosphere here.” While many cities have tried to lure the rare store away from Tipton County, Moore is staying put and adding more western wear, art and, of course, hats. The Ruger gun show brought close to 400 people to the store. There was also custom leather maker present so people had the option to purchase custom-made leather holsters. There was enough to satisfy anyone interested in the Old West culture, which is something Buckaroo Hatters specializes in. Paintings adorn the store of cowboys, movie stars, and historical

gentlemen all wearing the type of hats the store is widely known for making. Moore began the business years ago as a side project in his garage because of his passion for making large western hats. As his knowledge and interest grew, so did the customers, which allowed him to open up Buckaroo Hatters that has now been in business for almost seven years. It was recently located across from the Ruffin Theater on West Pleasant on the Square, but that store was outgrown due to sales, largely from out-of-state. Buckaroo Hatters did not move far though. It is just down the street next to Upscale Resale and across from the Hatchie River Emporium and Haberdashery. It has also added some western vintage wear, southwestern pottery and will be putting in an art gallery. There are also historical artifacts unique to the area and Moore himself uses sewing and hat making equipment that are from the wild west era, which are beneficial for the type of work it takes to making the perfect hat. Buckaroo Hatters is one of only

Rotary Club

200 custom hat makers in the United States and the only one in Tennessee. The nearest is located in Oklahoma City, according to Moore. People from all over the world contact Moore into making the hats, which can come in any size, shape of color and are guaranteed to not bleed. It takes Moore several hours to make sure everything on the hat, from the brim size to the sweatband, is perfect for each individual customer. Moore runs Buckaroo Hatters part-time but hopes he can one day run it full-time and turn his passionate interest into a fullblown career. The hours are 10-5 p.m. on Saturday and 11-4 p.m. on Sunday, but Moore said, “We really close when the customer decides to leave. You won’t ever hear me ask anyone to leave five minutes before closing time. I will stay and talk with them until eight if that is what they want.” Judging from his knowledge and passion for hat making and western culture, Moore could stay much later than eight.

By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL Parents, We have already reached the mid-point of the second nine-week grading period. It is time to check on your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress. If you had to adjust study times and methods, now is the time to see if those changes have been effective in your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic life. Look for progress reports to come home on Nov. 11. Our focus on the ACT is still our most important goal for our students. Our school district has provided every student with an access username and a password for the ACT online prep course (http:/ www.actstudent.org/onlineprep/index.html). That is a huge advantage for your student to be able to meet the goal he/she has set for getting to the college of his/her choice. The logon is obtained through the school, so if you are a junior or a senior, be certain to get that username. For freshmen and sophomores, it is never too early to begin preparing yourselves to be successful. The more rigorous courses are the ones that will prepare you to be successful on the entrance exam as well as keep you competitive when in college. Studying each night to do your best will pay off when you take the test. If you

ditionally, DECA will be attending a Grizzlies game on Nov. 8. Athletics BHS is filled with anticipation as the football team progresses to the playoffs. With our win last Friday, BHS will host Germantown. Coach Gore, one our football coaches, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you get to the playoffs itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important to take it one week at a time and realize it could be your last.â&#x20AC;?

meet the benchmarks: ( English - 18; Reading â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 21; Science â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 24 ) , then you will likely perform at a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? level when taking college level courses. A composite 21 brings lottery scholarship money but the higher the score, the greater the money. Encourage your child to be prepared; to learn solid study habits and to be ACT ready on the day that he/she takes the test. It will make a difference in your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. Sophomores took the PLAN test last week. The PLAN test is given by the ACT testing group and is a predictor of where your child will score on the ACT. When scores come back, parents will be notified so that they may check with/discuss with their students. We also have ASVAB scores to share if your sophomore, junior or senior student took the test. The ASVAB is a military entrance exam that closely correlates with the ACT. Please encourage your child to do his or her personal best so that the next level of education will be successful. By giving 100 percent daily in class, your student will be prepared to meet success in the best college or university he or she may choose to attend. Peggy Barber Murdock Principal Covington High School CHARGERS RETURN TO PLAYOFFS

Michelle Johnson and Susan Smith provided breakfast. Tyler Smith and Molly Griffin held a worship service for the entire meeting. The Annual Fields of

Faith event was held the evening of Oct. 27 commencing on the football field. First Baptist Church grilled out and fed all the athletic teams. Afterwards the athletes joined the rest of the crowd in Castellaw gym for a prelude of praise musice from Mario Hayslett and his praise band. Tyler Smith welcomed everyone. Kristy Richardson sang â&#x20AC;&#x153; My Redeemer Livesâ&#x20AC;? and then Mario and the band performed again. They were followed by a dramatic performance of â&#x20AC;&#x153; To Make You Feel My Loveâ&#x20AC;? by the Holly Grove Presbyterian Drama team. Mr. Hayslett then addressed the audience. He did a wonderful job teaching the students present, challenging them and encouraging them. FCA thanks everyone who made the event such a great success.

Military Matters October 28, 2010 (FHTNC)--Navy Seaman Recruit William J. Rittman, son of Cathy L. Brown of Atoka, Tenn., recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Rittman 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. Rittman is a 2005 graduate of Munford High School of Munford, Tenn.

Hi Everyone, The juvenile bow season deer hunt this past weekend put some deer meat into many freezers. On occasion, I use deer meat for chili. I had two grandsons, Matt Scott and Dalton Barber, who killed one each at their granddad’s in Murfreesboro. It was fun for them all to be together. We will probably hear about it through the Thanksgiving holiday. I can’t believe it is only three weeks away from today. The cooler temperatures are a sure sign the winter weather is approaching. Hope the weather

Hello Fellow Readers, Tuesday was election day, I hope you got out and exercised your right to vote. We have spent so much time trying to get our young adults to go to the polls that I think we have overlooked the 30 and 40 something’s. They are so loaded down with everyday tasks, I believe they feel their vote won’t be missed. I can identify with them. At that age, politics was not something I paid much attention to. My life was so filled with family and work that the news media was not a priority. And then to think that I had to go after work and

remains nice for the many who must travel. Of course, it is always worth being with family if at all possible, not to mention all the good food. My girlfriend, Anna Kiss, and I finally had a girls’ day out last week. We have been trying for several weeks, but something always seemed to come up. Charlie and I went to Brighton Middle School’s last football game last week. It was so good. They played Georgian Hills and the game was neck-to-neck all the way. Of course, Brighton won. Congratulations, fellows. Billy Joe Dunham received a trophy for his outstanding performance. Congratulations, Billy Joe.

stand in a line was not a favorable idea. I believe we need to push the early vote and find a way that is more convenient for this group to be advised of the candidates and be able to vote. The Brighton Football team won against Dyer Co. last Friday night. It was a better game than the score indicated. Dyer Co. has several exceptional players and they put us to the test for the first half of the game. Mid way into the third quarter we just out played them and found our mojo. We took off. When we play like that there is hardly any team that can catch us. Our first play off game is Friday (tomorrow) night at home!! We host the Germantown Devils.

Salem Presbyterian Church Worship is at 11 a.m. each Sunday. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. Everyone is always welcome. All youth and parents are invited to a hayride and cook-out at the home of Martha Fernandez on Saturday, Nov. 6 from 5-8 p.m. Happy birthdays this week go to Lillie McDaniel and Hunter Rinchart. Hope they are each the greatest. Sharon Presbyterian Church Worship is at 9 a.m. each Sunday morning. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. Everyone is always welcome. We are always grateful for our Dunlap

Please everyone that can come see our Cardinals play. It will be a little on the chilly side so bring out the gloves, blankets, hats, and so forth. If you forget yours the Boosters will be selling gloves, beanies, ear warmers, and hoodies at the game. If you would like to purchase any items before then we will be selling during the lunch hours at the high school. Go Cardinals!!!! We are so proud of you. The Brighton Band is selling prepaid dinners from Well’s Kitchen. You can call the school (8375800), Well’s (476-5750), or find a band member to order. I am also selling these at the salon (8377534) if you want to come by there.

residents who are able to be with us. Happy birthday this week to Jimmy Rammage. Hope it is the greatest! Covington Church of Christ Worship is at 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. each Sunday. Our minister is brother Mike Rogers and assistant minister brother Jeff Phillips. We are having our annual Family Day this Sunday, Nov. 7. Our guest speaker will be Jerrie Barber. A tremendous speaker. As in the past, we will be having Bible Study, worship service, potluck meal and then a 1 p.m. worship service. We have many on our prayer list. Please continue to remember these and others who are in special need. Ken-

Please remember Ethan and Sam Fussell in your prayers. They were injured in a car accident on Fayne Road a few weeks ago. Richard Berkley needs our prayers also; he suffered a stroke over the weekend. Keith McClerkin needs our prayers and visits, which he loves to get. And anyone else that I have failed to mention. Can you believe it is almost Thanksgiving?! The year is almost over. I would like to wish my niece, Olivia, and stepdad, Pop, a Happy Birthday. My sweet mother’s birthday is Nov. 8. I sure miss her. Hope your week is wonderful and prosperous. I love you all. Debe

neth Mason is now recovering at home. Happy Birthdays to Bill Murray, Rachel Nanee, Addie Kiss, Tim Halford and Terry Wall. Hope they are each the greatest! In closing, by the time this week’s news is out, the elections will all be over. I’ll be so glad. Hopefully, all signs will soon be down. However, it’s still our American privilege to get out and vote. Sure hope you all took advantage of the opportunity. I would like to say a special happy birthday to my sweet little Addie (my granddaughter) who turns five tomorrow, Nov. 5. Hope you all have a warm and great week!

It’s been a mild Monday, highs in the 70s but cooler temperatures are on the way - 50s for highs and low 30s at night this coming weekend. Also this weekend - fall back - set those clocks back an hour before you go to bed Saurday night! We have a clock that’s supposed to do that automatically, but it did it this past Saturday night, on the original date, the last Saturday night in October. Good thing my watch was on the night stand because our clock was an hour off! Why did they move it anyway? We ended up with over two inches of rain last week. We really needed it. The trees are turning, but they are kind of dull looking. Not going to be the prettiest Fall. And it has been noted on the Farmer’s Almanac that we are to expect below normal temperatures and above normal snowfall after January 2011. I’m typing the column Monday night, 9 p.m. because I have to be at Austin Peay Elementary at six in the morning to work the election. I will be so glad when all those mud-slinging TV ads are gone and my mailbox just has the usual junk mail! Can I get an Amen? James and I visited Catherine McCalla, the Queen of Mt. Carmel, for a little bit one afternoon last week. Took her some turnips and greens. (Janice Smith - did you find your greens I left?) We had a nice visit and I promised to come back when I have longer and will

SHAME - SHAME – SHAME, I’ve been trying to decide whether I should write about something that happened back in July or not. At first I was upset; it would have been too easy to say something that might have sounded wrong. Then it was long enough that I thought that I should just let it go, but I started to think the other day that people need to know about this. If a place of business will beat you out of a small amount of money, say under a hundred dollars what would or could they do to people dealing in thousands of dollars? I’m not going to call names but there’s a car dealership in Covington that recently changed hands. This is one of the leading dealers of the area and my wife Paula and I have brought our last two automobiles there. We had trouble a couple of years ago with our car and took it in to the dealership for a diagnostic. They found out that the battery had gotten weak and needed to be

We had a big time at the Trick or Trunk at Jeff and Christie Coughlan’s home. Games, costume contest, face painting, pumpkin painting, hot chocolate, chili cook-off (congratulations to Angie Gatlin!), wiener and marshmallow roast (by permission of the fire department) and a hay ride were all events enjoyed. It was Lyla’s first Halloween and she was mesmerized by the bonfire! Members of the Covington Church of Christ are getting ready for our Friends and Family Day this Sunday, the 7th. Big potluck meal, games, worship at 1 p.m. and no services that evening. Signup sheets are in the foyer for everything from what food you want to bring to who wants to clean up afterward! It will be a big day and we look forward to hearing Jerrie Barber speak. Kenneth Mason is doing well after some surgery last week.

This week’s Cat Report: No CK Report, she hasn’t come back . . . but her two “feral” kittens are still here and they are a riot! They stay on the roof a lot and in the mornings, one of them climbs up the chimney, gets on a limb, climbs down the tree and comes to eat. The other jumps off the roof - a good eight feet - just about every morning, hits the bricks and comes to eat. Now you’d think this would be the tough cat, the Alpha Cat, but no. Its brother, who comes down the tree, growls and puts his paw on the jumper cat’s head to keep him from getting any of the food. And it doesn’t do any good to put two piles out - they are just like kids and still want to eat from the same pile!

replaced. Indeed that did solve the problem although at the time I thought they were crazy. I’ve worked on cars most of my life and I never up until then had seen a weak battery effect an engine the way that one did, but as I said that fixed it. All was well and good until July of this year. We were in Bristol for my daughter’s wedding when the battery again went bad. We had to buy a new battery while in Bristol in order to make it home. The battery that we had purchased here in Covington at the dealership had a two year “free” replacement so I went to the dealer to see if they would honor it. I knew that they wouldn’t give money back on the battery that we had just bought, but like all country boys I have a lot of old vehicles setting around and I always need a battery for one of them so I thought if I could get the replacement maybe it would work on something else I owned. Well to my surprise they checked the battery and determined it was bad but were unwilling to do anything about it. They said it was because they did not see on

Hello friends, Back last May 27, our new friend Mr. Robert Feirn stopped by to see us. We enjoyed his visit. Just that morning, I found a bag of raw peanuts in the back of my cabinet. We grew them out at Randolph, so I guess they were about two years old. I parched some and they were okay. Then we shelled some and planted a row of peanuts in my flower garden. The weather has been so dry, we could not even pull them up. So finally after the rain, we shoveled them up with our best shovel. The vines were the only thing green in our yard. Those peanuts stayed green all summer and we never even watered them. So last week we dug them up, washed the dirt off, picked them off the vines and laid them out in the sunshine. I was so afraid that it might rain on them that I brought them in the house and laid them on a big towel on my kitchen counter. Finally, they were pretty dry, so I put them in a mesh potato bag. I would lay them out on the deck

the work order where the other dealership had put a new battery on our car only that they had worked on it. I told them that it still had the tag in it with the name of the old dealership but that made no difference. I also told them that since it was the brand name that their dealership sold it should be have a warranty nationwide but this didn’t matter either. The two-year free replacement has now passed and I still haven’t done anything with it. It’s just sitting on my porch as a reminder to me everyday why Paula and I will never buy another car from that dealership because like I said earlier if they will beat me out so little money what would they do to someone that brought a new car from them? I just felt like I should share this with all of you. I’m getting reports that Jeff Hicks has been improving a little but is still in very serious condition. His family asks that we all keep praying for him to give them the strength for the days to come. Thanks for reading and have a good week.

BMS claims second straight title By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com It was far from easy, but the Brighton Middle School football team took care of business again Saturday afternoon in Memphis. For the second straight season BMS claimed the highest prize in middle school football with a 26-22 win over Georgian Hills in the West Tennessee Sectional Championship. “This team’s been about overcoming adversity all year,” said BMS head coach Larry

Williams, “and they did it again.” With four minutes left in the game, Georgian Hills found the end zone to take a 22-20 lead. But BMS put together a 10play, 65-yard drive in the closing minutes that was punctuated by a 6-yard touchdown run by Billy Joe Dunham with :28 left. Fittingly, Dunham, who has named the game’s MVP, intercepted a pass in the closing seconds to seal the title. Montavo Terry, Brighton’s top back throughout the year, broke a 53-

yard touchdown run in the first quarter to give BMS an 8-6 lead. In the third quarter, an 11-play, 75-yard Brighton drive ended with a 25-yard touchdown pass from Bentley Jones to put Brighton ahead 20-14. Devin Neal scored on a 2-yard run before halftime to knot the score at 14-14. Brighton’s ability to sustain long drives against a team that Williams called “bigger and more athletic” was the difference in the game. Following the win, Williams made a point

to name all five offensive linemen – Tucker Higgins, Chase Cutrera, Andrew Brown, John Hayden Bowers and

Brett Armour. “They were probably better athletically, but we were able to control the clock,” Williams said. “I

think we converted more third downs in this game than we did all year … We had to play good and we did.”

Chargers lose close one, but look to playoffs By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader In arguably their best played game of the season, the Covington Chargers fell to the unbeaten (in the region) Martin Westview Chargers 21-20 last Friday at the Athletic Field. In as hard-hitting and punishing a game as has been seen at CHS in a while, the Chargers won everywhere but on the scoreboard piling up 317 rushing yards to Westview’s 164 and out-totaling them yardage wise 386 to 213. Penalties proved troublesome for CHS; at times it looked like laundry day on the field as CHS was flagged 10 times to three for the opposition. Covington held Westview to a draw in the first half. Martin scored first moving downfield 75 yards in a 16-play drive that was capped by a 17yard pass from Tanner Spencer to Seth Waterfield. With the PAT, Westview led 7-0 with 6:05 left in the first quarter. CHS took less than three minutes to respond. Following a touchback, Carlos Williams picked up a couple of short gains before Terrence Pierson took off for 32 to the Mar-

tin 39 and then 39 more to the Westview end zone. Pierson had 154 yards on 18 carries for the night. The PAT was wide and Martin led 7-6 with 3:45 left in the quarter. After forcing a Martin punt, the Chargers had a first and 10 at the Martin 25. A series of penalties pushed them to a fourth and 24 at the 39. Lining up to punt, CHS snapped to an upback, Collier Robinson, who bolted through the shocked opponents for a touchdown and the lead. Britt Dunn hit Pierson with a short pass for a two-point conversion and CHS was up 14-7 with 7:51 left in the half. The Chargers pinned Martin deep on the kickoff but were called offside and had to re-kick allowing Martin better field position at their 40. A pass interference call by an out-of-position official kept a Westview drive alive and set them up at the CHS 30. From there, Wyatt Zarecor eluded CHS tacklers on a nifty run of 25 yards that with the PAT tied the score at 14 with 4:14 remaining in the half and that’s the way it stayed. Westview recovered a Charger fumble at the

CHS 43 on the opening possession of the third quarter. It took only five plays for them to take advantage on a 21-yard pass giving Martin a 2114 lead with 8:58 remaining in the quarter. Westview would not sniff the goal line again. On the next possession, a CHS drive was waylaid by a sideline penalty that turned a second and six into a third and 11 killing a drive. They stopped Martin on the first play from scrimmage following the punt, however, as Terrance Pierson recovered a fumble at the Martin 47. CHS drove to the Westview 17 but turned it over on downs. CHS held again and mounted another drive that appeared to stall at the Martin 27. Carlos Williams was tackled at the line on fourth down but CHS could not get an official measurement. The officials moved the chains, and then flagged the coach for unsportsmanlike conduct when he complained. It didn’t take long for CHS to get the ball back as Williams unstrung Haddad on the next play on a blitz separating him from the ball. Jadarius Temple recovered and put CHS in

business at the Martin 39. Two more penalties killed the CHS possession and forced a punt. CHS got the ball back from Westview for the last time with 5:11 on the clock. With Williams and Pierson doing the heavy lifting, the Chargers moved downfield in six plays taking 3:07 off the clock to score with Williams crossing the goal line at the 2:04 mark from 24 yards out to pull CHS to within one at 21-20. He had 123 rushing yards on 21 carries. “I decided that the twopoint conversion was the best option,” Head Coach Marty Wheeler said. “We were just about spent. I did not know how much they had left but I felt that it was not fair to our kids to play for overtime and put a team like that on the 10-yard line and try to keep them out. They guessed right on where they lined up their best player (Legens) for the play we called and they stopped us.” It wasn’t over. CHS’s T J Fleming recovered the ensuing on-side kick at the Westview 49. With 1:13 left, Dunn hit Martavian Adams with a 28yard strike at the Westview seven to set up a first and goal. Three plays

Brighton earns right to host playoff game By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com This one wasn’t a blowout from the start as most of Brighton’s wins have been this year. But in the end, the result was the same: another convincing win highlighted by an explosive passing attack. Brighton trailed Dyer County 27-22 early in the third quarter before scoring 26 unanswered points to beat the Choctaws in Newbern, 48-27. The win allowed Brighton (9-1 overall, 3-1 District 13-AAA) to finish second in the district, clinch a

playoff berth and host a first round game. The Cardinals will host Germantown on Friday at 7 p.m. Brighton quarterback Danny Potter led Brighton’s second half surge, throwing one touchdown pass to Ricky Foster and finishing with 286 yards in the air. Foster finished with 175 receiving yards. Greg Starks and Antonio Dickerson each had key rushing touchdowns in the game for Brighton. This will be the third straight year that the Cardinals have hosted a first-round playoff game. Brighton lost to Melrose in the first round in 2008 and fell to Kirby last season.

Germantown brings a lot of tradition, and a strong running attack, to the table. “They’ve been doing it for a while now,” said Brighton head coach Will Wolfe. “They do what they do and come right at you.” Considering Brighton’s prolific passing attack, the game should be a interesting one pitting two teams with contrasting styles. “This is a step we’ve got to take,” Wolfe said. “We’ve been building the program for a while now and we just need to get over that hump … I feel like if we could get past that first one we could get on a roll.”

Cougars drop heartbreaker in overtime

By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com If anybody attending Friday night’s Westwood-Munford game in Munford had a sensation of déjà vu, it was for good reason. For the second straight season the Cougars dropped an overtime game to the Longhorns in the season finale. Munford (2-8) had Westwood on the ropes a couple of times, but could not quite put them away and fell 20-17. The Cougars got the ball first in the extra period and moved to the 2-yard line on their first play from scrimmage, but ended up having to settle for a 27-yard field goal from Kale Gramling. Westwood faced a third and goal on its first possession of overtime. Longhorn quarterback Martavious Summers was chased back to the 13 before he found Jerome Gilkey in the end zone for the game winner. Drew Weston, who had a huge game for Munford with 157 yards on 26 carries, scored from five yards out to give Munford a 14-7 lead with 1:58 left in the game. Westwood moved deep into Munford territory on its ensuing possession when a pass deflect-

ed off a player’s helmet and to a Westwood receiver. Then Davis found Gilkey on a fourthand-18 play to tie the score and force overtime. “The ball hit the guy’s helmet and flew up in the air,” said Munford head coach Matt Saunders. “That’s the story of our season.” Westwood went ahead 7-0 in the first quarter on a 63-yard pass from Gilkey to Nate Sutton. Munford answered in the second quarter on a 2-yard run from Weston. Hunter Harden had a strong game for Munford, completing 11 of 20 passes for 135 yards. Jordan Wade had five catches for 110 yards for the Cougars. Bruce Fleming had five sacks for the Cougars. Saunders said he was obviously not happy with a twowin season that ended with eight straight losses, but he like the way his competed throughout a difficult season. “No matter the situation, the guys fought until the end,” Saunders said. “We tried to teach them that this is way life goes sometimes. When you grow up and get in the real world, it’s all about what you’re going to do when you face adversity.”

Rebels fall to USJ in season finale By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com USJ showed why it’s considered one of the best DII-A teams in the state Friday night in Jackson. The Bruins jumped out to a 48-0 halftime lead on Tipton-Rosemark Academy and went on to win 62-0 heading into the playoffs. Rosemark’s season ended with a 2-8 mark, but first-year head coach Dodd Gengenbach found reason to be optimistic about the season as a whole. “From my perspective, we made a lot of a progress as a team,” Gengenbach said. “We were more competitive in a lot more games than we were last year.” Bruin quarterback Jake Overbey, who was named

Mr. Football last season, completed 4 of 4 passes for 180 yards and three touchdowns in the first half as USJ took control of the game. A USJ punt return for a touchdown the first half also helped the Bruins put the game out of reach early. TRA was held to 58 yards of offense. The Rebels will lose 10 seniors to graduation, including top running backs Zac Hodgins and Jordan Fox. But 11 juniors, all of whom saw plenty of playing time, return for 2011. “Even though we ended up with the same amount of wins as last year, we had opportunities to win more,” Gengenbach said. “Now it’s just a matter of taking the next step in terms of knowing what it takes to finish off games.”

Lady Cougars drop two straight at state By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com The Munford Lady Cougar volleyball team accomplished quite a bit during the 2010 season. The squad picked up district, region and sectional title trophies to add to the case and advanced to the Class AAA State Tournament for the second time in the three years. But the team ran into some very tough competition in Murfreesboro. Munford lost to Dobyns-Bennett, an eventual finalist, in the opener last Wednesday morning 25-13, 25-17, 25-7. In a loser’s bracket game that afternoon Munford fell to Karns 25-16,

25-16, 25-16 and saw its season come to an end. Scarlet Gable had 18 kills and 10 digs in the opening match to lead the way for Munford.
