Pam Deen announces retirement By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com After spending four decades working for the county, Tipton County Clerk Pam Deen has announced she will not be seeking re-election this year. Retiring from the posi-

tion she's held since 1994 is bittersweet, she said. "It's happy and it's sad at the same time, but I'm leaving in good health and with the office in good shape." Deen began her career with the county clerk's office in 1968 under the direction of Clara

McMillin. Back then, everything was done by hand. "We hand wrote each and every auto renewal, title application, business tax, marriage license," she said. "I have a permanent ridge on my finger from writing those renewals back in

those days!" Deen said when she joined the department, employees were supposed to be at least 21 years old, but McMillin went to court to have her In the years since, auto renewals have changed to a staggered system –

they used to be done in March and April only – and the office has become fully automated. Automation is one of things for which Deen is most proud. She is also proud of branching out to include a satellite office in Munford, SEE DEEN, PAGE A3

Storm brings salt shortage, street repairs By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com A surprise snow fell in the Mid-South early Monday morning, catching residents and forecasters both offguard. This snowstorm - the third in a month - also caught the public works department by surprise, especially since it had recently run out of salt for the roadways.

There’s been a battle heating up in Tipton County over a proposed outdoor gun range located in the Mt. Lebanon community. Long-time hand gun instructor Chester Evitt and local Covington business owner Jay Ridings have been working together to have an outdoor range built on Ridings’ property. The two recently appeared before the Tipton County Board of Zoning Appeals to request a use permit with special exception for a recreational facility to operate an indoor classroom and 100 yard outdoor shooting range. “In the past five years I have been trying to get a gun range built somewhere in Tipton County,” explained Evitt to the board and more than 75 residents in attendance against the proposed gun range. “I have pleaded with [County Executive] Mr. Huffman to use county land and I have been turned away from private owners.” The proposed range would be located on Ridings 14 acres on Mt. Lebanon Road. The closest home is located approximately 375 feet east of the proposed site. Evitt explained to the board he and Ridings intended to follow the requirements set by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. “We want to follow the proper procedures,” Evitt told the board. “Which is why it is in front of you tonight. I am currently involved in building three ranges in Montgomery, Ala. and no range I have ever been involved in has ever had an accident. For the record, no range built in the state of Tennessee and built to standards, has ever had an accident that was not cause by an individual there.” Evitt told the board the reasons he has been told against the gun range include concerns over the noise level and ricochetting ammunition. “Noise abatement is a big problem, guns do make a lot of noise but in our community so do a lot of other things,” said Evitt. “A gun reaches a 160 decibel (db) level when it’s fired. It’s down to 92db at 100 feet and at 200 feet it’s at 60db or less. A typical John Deere tractor, crop duster, cotton gin or the car next to you at a stop sign with its music blaring are all things we hear every day. All of these things make louder noise than SEE GUN RANGE, PAGE A5

CPD nets six drug arrests in four days By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com COVINGTON – In four days, police officers in Covington have netted six drug arrests and several drug seizures. On Friday, Feb. 5, Officer Andrew Hefner conducted a traffic stop near Logan Drive after observing a Honda CRV speeding on Hwy. 51 North. The driver, identified as Daniel Alexander Cox, 26, of 2039 Woodlawn Ave. in Brighton, was arrested for driving on a revoked license and gave Hefner consent to search his vehicle. During the search, Hefner found a brown coat contain-

ing a spoon and syringe, each with a white residue. According to the police report, Cox told Hefner the substance on the syringe and spoon was Oxycontin and admitted to self-medicating. He was charged with possession of a schedule II substance, driving on a revoked license and speeding. The following evening, a traffic violation led to the arrest of another pair of men. Two passengers in a white Ford Crown Victoria were observed traveling eastbound on Ripley Ave. and neither was wearing a seatbelt. SEE ARRESTS, PAGE A5

Choir declines Carnegie Hall invite

By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com

With feelings of butterflies in their stomachs or at least in the stomachs of their parents, the firstever “Little Miss” Tipton County Pageant was recently held at the Ruffin Theatre on Jan. 9.

The pageant was broken down into five divisions. The winners and runner-ups were:

MUNFORD – The invitation to sing at Carnegie Hall has been declined by the Munford High School choir because it did not meet its fundraising goal. Last month, the school announced its choir had been invited to perform in the National Youth Concert in New York City’s world famous Carnegie Hall. “This is the most prestigious opportunity a musician can have, to perform in the same place where Tchaikowsky and Bernstein conducted, where Frank Sinatra and the Beatles sang," said director Peter Colin. "It is the highest performance honor I know.” Munford was one of five choirs selected from an applicant pool from school choirs across the country. However, in order to go, the choir had to raise $70,000, but fell approxi-

Large grow operation uncovered in Brighton By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com BRIGHTON – You never know who's watching - and for one Brighton man, the observance of suspicious activity led to his arrest last month. On Jan. 22, deputies with the Tipton County Sheriff's Office, assisted by Brighton police officers, responded to 142 Scott Street after receiving a complaint of possible drug activity at the residence. When they arrived, deputies smelled a strong odor associated with marijuana. They recovered approximately 35 marijuana plants and a grow operation, including grow lamps, a watering system and reflective devices from the walls, assorted drug

DEEN Continued from Page A1 making renewals more convenient for those who live in the south end of the county. "The people down there are so appreciative of that," she said. Additionally, the county clerk's office in Covington has moved from the courthouse to the former justice complex, where it is currently located. The move took the office from approximately 600 to 5,000 square feet and added the convenience of drive-thru windows. "We didn't even know we were cramped in the old place until we moved here," she said, laughing. With her retirement date – Aug. 31 – quickly approaching, Deen has been recalling some of her fondest and funniest memories from the past 40 years. The people of Tipton County play a part in every single one. "It's been great being able to work with the people in this county because they're like my family," Deen said. "With the county officials, we're just like a brother-sister set." Deen said she will miss the office and the peo-

paraphernalia, electronic games and two rifles. “This case all got started with a citizen that took the time to call in suspicious activity in their neighborhood," said Tipton County Sheriff J.T. "Pancho" Chumley. "I encourage people to call and we will conduct the follow-up investigation." The homeowner, 32-year-old Daniel John Hayes, was arrested at the scene and charged with manufacturing, selling and delivery of a schedule VI drug. He is currently free on a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to make an appearance in Tipton County General Sessions Court on Feb. 16. "The officers took the initiative in the case and it resulted in a large seizure of plants and

property. I commend their hard work," Chumley said. This is the first large marijuana grow found this year. Last month deputies busted four methamphetamine labs. Anyone having information on illegal drug activity is asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Division at the Tipton County Sheriff's Office at (901) 475-3300. Tips can be phoned in at (901) 475-3307 or emailed to sheriff@ tiptonco.com. Crime Stoppers of Tipton County Inc. at (901) 4764411 will pay cash rewards for information leading to the arrest and indictment of persons who commit criminal acts in Tipton County.

"There are other things I want to do while I have good health," she said. On Friday morning, Deen will marry David White and the couple plans to farm, garden and travel while they can. She is also looking forward to sleeping late and spending quality time with her grandchildren, 7-year-old Aubree and 1-year-old Carter. "They grow up so fast that one day they won't need Nanny around as much!" From now until her

retirement, Deen said the office will be business as usual. Her successor, she said, should be someone who comes from within. "Since I came from within, I'll say it makes sense from someone from the office to continue operate the office as it's always been run." So far, two of her staff members have announced their candidacy and hope to fill Deen's seat as clerk. Her advice to the candidates is to work hard.

Using social networking in increase interaction I am a firm believer in the power of social networking and the benefits of new media. This should come as no surprise, though. I'm very active on Twitter and Facebook and last year started a Twitter feed and Facebook fan page for The Leader as well. Let's face it: the Internet isn't going anywhere. I believed we needed to get our foot in the door with social networking/ media, a very important medium right now. Since I joined the staff I have made it a point to be as personal as possible, commenting on stories and interacting with you, our readers, and now, responding to our Facebook fans and Twitter followers. Next week will mark four years since I came to Tipton County and the first lesson I learned was friendly, personal customer service goes a long way. This, I believe, also goes a long way in the newspaper business. It’s important to me to respond because I want you to know that we care about you and we are truly working for you. There was a time when we had a publisher who told staff writer Sherri Onorati and I we weren’t allowed to comment on the website (before the Facebook & Twitter pages), but we did it anyway. It’s that important to us. With our website, our Facebook page, our Twitter page, I try to inter-

Thank you for the kindness of strangers Dear Editor, I don’t know what made me try to go to work on Monday morning after watching the weatherman advise people to only get out if absolutely necessary, but after making it as far as Millington, I realized that the conditions indeed were too unsafe and I probably needed to go back home. After sliding back through Millington, I found myself stuck in a long line of traffic apparently caused by some type of accident on Highway 51. I decided to take a detour onto Tracy Road and that is where my problems began. As I turned off of Tracy Road onto Tipton Road my car slid into a ditch. With no phone and several inches of snow on the ground, I felt stranded. But here is where my problems were solved by the kindness of strangers. Someone who lives in the subdivision off of Tipton Road (across from Tipton Post Office) saw me, hollered over, and told me they would call 911 so that I could get some help. Shortly after, a man in a red F150 stopped to see if he could help but unfortunately he didn’t have a chain to pull me out with. Around that time an Atoka police officer came and then a man that I assume is a firefighter (based on the tags on his car) came and offered help. The firefighter said he would go home and get his tractor to pull me out and the police officer told me that he would wait with me so that no other cars would come along and hit me. To all those people I want to say a hearty THANK YOU. I really thought the police would be too busy to come and see about me, what with all the other cars that I had seen on the side of the road. But not only did they come and check on me, but he actually waited with me. And the tractor guy didn’t charge me a dime and even told me that if I got stuck again on my way home (which thankfully I didn’t) he would gladly come and pull me out again. Tipton County really has some good samaritans and I was fortunate to cross paths with four of them on a snowy Monday morning. Tanya Jones Atoka

A mansion to rednecks

Anybody that grew up in the country centuries ago can remember that my ‘pore’ ole hard working farmers spent more time at the barn than anywhere else. City slickers wouldn’t understand especially the ones that have been under a root cellar quarantined against physical endeavors, known as work. Then again I have known some trash that wasn’t afraid of work as they could just lay down right beside it and go sound asleep. Didn’t bother them a tall. Going back several decades when someone came to see Daddy, Momma’s answer was always, “well he’s down at the barn.” Which was common sense back ’en. No sittin’ down ’til after supper. Now a days. “oh he’s in the big room, great room, office, TV, study or relaxing room. Ain’t nobody down at the barn anymore that’s for sho’. Friends, why was the barn so all fired important? For folks caught in a rabbit trap chasing that flopping carrot dangling on a sea grass string the answer is pretty simple. That old gray leaning wooden structure to over educated Harvard liberals was our life blood and sanctuary

to ‘pore’ rednecks. We couldn’t have survived. This same framework was a castle to all us country folks. I know when Daddy bought the home place in Rosemark the most important building was the barn, not the dwelling. I reckon Daddy’s thinking was, “we can eat and sleep anywhere, but the livestock needs to be took care of.” That’s where the grub and money is.” Alright by me. As you lean back in yo’ easy chair can you dreamily recollect the many bushels of corn you th’owed in the crib with the heavy iron fingered scoop on a wintry morn while you breathed frost? How about chunking hun’ert pound bales of lespedeza and alfalfa trying to make it up to the floor of the loft in the hun’ert degree, can’t catch yo’ breath miserable heat? All the while maintaining yo’ balance on shiftin’ bales under yo’ heavy blue goose brogans. Think about when the three foot long leather shoe strings came untied, causin’ you to trip and flail.

Southern history that started even before the era of the greatest President of the world was leading the Confederate country against the upwind bluecoat aggression. Yesss Suhhh! When neighbors helped their fellow man during crop time. Whether choppin’, pickin’, farrowin’, hay haulin’, rooster fryin’ or hog killin’. Daddy welcomed my young friends as he knew he wouldn’t have to pay them but maybe a moon pie and R. C or a Baby Ruth at Mr. Ben’s mercantile. But that was cheaper than two George’s and four bits a day for each hand and dinner grub. Reliving the past when

my dear friends Tommy, Paul, Lynn, Emerson, Phil and Arvis came over to throw bales brought back some terrifying moments. Once Daddy wasn’t around and Paul accidentally let a bale slip back down from the loft and it landed on Phil’s head knocking him off the hay wagon. He bounced like a rubber ball and claimed he almost broke his leg? Oooops! Neighbor, remember the bales were tightly wrapped with sea grass or balin’ wire. Back ’en we had to use our knees to sling each bale up’ards. Emerson’s huge glove got caught under the wire and flew up in the loft. Little boys didn’t have little boy gloves as we had to use floppy, too big, grownup protection. Lynn wouldn’t return the glove so some skin was raw come quittin’ time. Parnell claimed years later he even offered Lynn half his Moon pie, but Lynn still denies it was on purpose. There was a lot of work in the old country barns, but some good times too. But the best part is my Southern country memories of old barns ’cause that there sho’ ain’t no new ones today…. GLORY!

Encore book signing to be held Saturday By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com The book signing held last Saturday at the Tipton County Library for Bill Jim Davis’ autobiographical account of Pearl Harbor and World War II – ABANDON SHIP! A SURVIVOR’s STORY: The Attack on Pearl Harbor, the Sinking of the USS Helena, Seven Additional Naval Battles and My Life During World War II – was such a success, Davis ran out of books in the first 45 min-

ARREST Continued from Page A1 Officer Michael Short conducted a traffic stop and noticed what was described as a strong odor of marijuana coming from the inside of the vehicle. The report indicates Short found three small bags of marijuana when he patted the passenger, Corey Corvette Taylor, 21, down. Taylor, of 809 Barlow Street, was cited into Tipton County General Sessions Court and charged with simple possession and a violation of the seatbelt law. The driver, Brandon Whitley, dropped a bag of marijuana from his pant leg when he stepped out of the vehicle. While being patted down, Short

GUN RANGE Continued from Page A1 Noise is a concern but every range built in the state of Tennessee, built to standards required by the Tennessee Resource Wildlife Agency, has never been shut down because of noise.” Evitt assure the board the range would have the proper safety features in place. “We are following the guidelines set in place by the State of Tennessee and the Army Corps of Engineers which address sound abatement and safety concerns. There are shots being fired around Tipton County every day not on a range,” he said. “Who lives beyond that? I know who lives beyond this range. There are three shooting teams in Tipton County who don’t have a place to shoot. This is about having a safe place to shoot.” Mt. Lebanon resident Ben Barker spoke for the opposition asking the board to vote against the proposal. “Three reasons why Mt. Lebanon community is against the shooting range,” said Barker. “There are our personal safety, the safety of our families and the safety of our neighbors. There are seven families who have homes located 1100 feet to 2300 feet downrange. And they are potential locations for ricochets.” Barker also told the board noise levels were required to be at 75db at the property lines. “No one should have to

utes of the event. Davis took orders from those in line and will have the books available this Saturday, Feb. 13 at an additional book signing. “He sold out on Saturday and took orders for about 150 more books,” said Library director Susan Cheairs. “We’ve also ordered extra copies.” The encore book signing will be held at the Tipton County Library

found a dozen more bags, packaged for sale, weighing approximately 27 grams. He was charged with possession of a schedule VI substance with intent and a violation of the seatbelt law. The Crown Victoria was also seized as was $460, which was believed to be the profit from drug sales. Later that night, officers conducted a "knock and talk" at Whitley's home, finding a bag containing 8.9 ounces of marijuana, two boxes of sandwich bags, a set of digital scales, a Vice Lord gang bible, several other items believed to be gang-related and a bag containing 50 and a half white pills. All items found in the home were seized and the pills were sent to the put up with the constant noise this range would generate especially those of us who work nights and long hours,” he said. “There are people who work the fields all year long, many times out of sight of those down range. I have a gun permit and I am an advocate of shooting and protecting our second amendment rights but we know there will be shooters there of all experience levels. Who is to say one of those won’t shoot prematurely, or not shoot directly at the target of intent. My gun instructor told me quite often, ‘where that bullet goes so does your liability. No one in the room can tell me where a ricochet bullet will go but everyone in this room can tell me who is responsible for that bullet.” Board member Arzell Teamer asked Evitt is there wasn’t another location he could chose. “I have tried,” responded Evitt. “There is county property we have begged and pleaded for. We asked to reutilize the county dump, which could be built up around it and it would be a safe place with no houses around it, but we’ve been turned away. We’ve talked to five individuals who have offered their land, but as nice as that was, I have to turn it down because what if someone decided to build a home there. That’s why we chose [Ridings property] because it’s in a flood zone; no houses can be built there.” Evitt told the board the

TBI crime lab for identification. Tuesday night, officers received an anonymous complaint of drug activity at 137 Smithville. The resident, Jimmy Dewayne Johnson, 27, admitted to officers he had marijuana and a glass pipe in a safe in his bedroom and gave officers consent to search the residence. A bag containing the pipe as well as 24.5 grams of marijuana was found. He was cited into general sessions court and charged with possession of a schedule VI substance with intent and possession of drug paraphernalia. Hours later, a search warrant was conducted at 324 N. High Street at the home of Jeffrey Rogers, 23. The report states offi-

cers found two small bags of marijuana inside the residence as well as a paper roller and two small marijuana blunts. Rogers was also cited into general sessions for possession of a controlled substance. An hour later, another search warrant was executed on High Street, this time at the residence of Marvin Lavelle Woodland. Reports indicate persons in the home were detained while the home was being searched. Woodland, 30, was not home at the time. In Woodland's bedroom, officers found a coffee can containing 10.8 grams of marijuana. He will be charged with possession of a controlled substance.

facility is not set in stone and he is open to suggestions. “I’d love for someone to say, ‘hey we’ve got land here to build a facility that everyone in Tipton County can use.’” The board asked about the closeness of the homes and didn’t he think the noise would bother them. “The noise will bother someone, but the plans we will follow will have ways to cut down on the noise with baffles and trees. If we use those lines, what noise abatements do we have from crop dusters that bother people? It’s the same thing. It doesn’t matter what makes the noise, but what do we do to prevent it? One of the things I can do when building a range is build baffles to help control any stray bullet that may leave the range and to help control

the noise.” After both sides were heard, board member James Adkins made the motion to disapprove the request to build the outdoor gun range based on the fact that it wouldn’t meet the 75 decibel limitations required at the property line. The motion was seconded and passed. Property owner Jay Ridings was disappointed and addressed the board after the room had cleared, stating his intentions to go ahead with the range. “I’ve shot for many years on my property and no one has ever complained,” he said. “We’ve done a lot of research before we came up here. If I have to take it private I will. I can go private. I’d rather go the other way, but if we have go, that’s the way we’ll go.”

Roland “Bob� Wolle

Military Matters SR Tia L. Robinson Navy Seaman Recruit Tia L. Robinson, daughter of Joyce A. Robinson of Munford, Tenn., recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

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. Robinson is a 2006 graduate of Brighton High School.

Grassland reserve program signup open til Feb. 26 Tennesseans who own grazing lands are encouraged to consider signing up for the USDA’s 2010 Grassland Reserve Program (GRP). GRP assists landowners by protecting grazing lands through the conservation of grassland resources on eligible private lands. Over $900,000 in GRP funds are available in fiscal year 2010. GRP is administered by the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) nd the Farm Service Agency. (FSA) State Conservationist Kevin Brown, who lead NRCS in Tennessee,s ays state grazing lands have been disappearing as TN expereinces an increase in residential and commercial development. “Our priority for GRP at the state level is to protect grazing lands that face significant threats of being converted to non-agricultural uses,” Brown said. “We are especially interested in protecting grazing land sites that have cultural or historical importance, such as Civil War Battlefields, but we also want to protect grasslands that some native song birds and other wildlife species rely on for survival.”

Applicants have two enrollment options: easement or rental contract. Easements will be for a permanent duration, whereas rental contracts will be for 10, 15, or 20year lengths. Landowners must submit applications on or before Feb. 26, 2010 to receive consideration for funding in FY 2010. Rental contracts will be taken from across Tennessee, but easements will come primarily from high priority counties. High priority counties meet two important criteria: They have a population growth greater than 8.2 percent and a decrease in farm land greater than 13.9 percent. According to 2007 Ag Census and U. S. Census Bureau data collected from 2020-2007, Tenneessee’s high priority counties include Davidson, Fayette, Hamilton, Rutherford, Sevier, Shelby, Williamson and Wilson. Eligible land includes: • Grassland for which grazing is the predominant use, or • Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acreage expiring in 2010 (eligible only for easement or 20-year rental contacts) For easement applica-

tions, participants must own the eligible acreage and meet USDA requirements. Easement applications will be screened prior to ranking to reduce field office workload. Only high priority applications will be ranked. Medium priority applications will be ranked only if funds are available. Easement compensation is for the fair market value of the land less the grazing value. For rental contracts, participants must own the eligible acreage or have control of the eligible acreage for the life of the contract and meet the requirements set forth by the USDA. GRP rentla rates are available for each TN County on the TN-NRCS website at www.tn.nrcs.usda.gov. A grazing management plan will be needed prior to contracting for both easement and rental contracts. To learn more about the GRP signup, contact Andy Faulkner at 901475-3350 ext. 3 or go to www.tn.nrcs.usda.gov and look under programs for more information. NRCS is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

476-7014 Hello everyone! You all seem so far away! I want to get in touch with people in civilization. Not saying of course we’re not in civilization out here at Dunlap, but oh my goodness, this snow is totally giving me cabin fever! I’m sorry but I’m ready for summer. Just put me on a beach some place that I can see above the snow and trees! Well I guess maybe I might be exaggerating somewhat, but y’all know what I mean don’t you? The weather makes it hard on folks gettin’ to work, and here at the retirement center, it’s one of those “you gotta be here jobs.” I know last week I was so thankful to a few of my staff for staying here all weekend and then now this week they have had to do basically the same thing. They can’t get out and the ones coming on can’t get in. I know it’s that way at the hospitals and all other work places, but the Lord works it all out. He knows our needs and He will provide what we need when we need it!

We just have to hold on to that! I have some items of prayer for some of my dear folks out here, please be in prayer for Ms. Flo Martin, she is in the hospital and seems to be doing a little better, but will be doing a little rehab before she comes home. Also Ms. Madelyn Parham has been in the hospital as well, but is now at back home. Welcome home Ms. Madelyn, we are praying for you and Ms. Flo! Please also keep Ms. Polly in your prayers. She is having complications but is doing better. This week we celebrated one of our staff birthdays, Joan Sanders. “Happy birthday Joan.” Hope you had a great one! We are supposed to be having a Valentine’s party, but I’m not sure weather will permit it. We’ll see. Only the Lord knows for sure at this point. My precious grandson, Jackson Chase Hanks’ birthday was this week as well. He and Joan share the same birthday! “Happy birthday Buddy, you are mine and Papaw’s special little bud.” I’m so excited, I just had my little lady from Nashville call and say she is here! Welcome Ms. Tiny,

we are so very glad to have you here with us at Dunlap! Ms. Tiny is moving into the apartments here on campus. They are independent living apartments and I’m sure she’d love to have some neighbors, so if anyone knows of anyone else that needs a great place to live, please let me know. I have a three bedroom with one huge bathroom, and I also have another three bedroom that has one big bedroom and two smaller bedrooms and it has one and a half baths. We pay the electric bills and the maintenance. So if you are interested please call Kathy at 476-7014. I also have rooms in the retirement buildings as well. There we cook, clean, do your laundry and even will assist you with your medication! So if you are having a hard time doing all those daily duties for yourself, please give me a call and we’ll set something up so you can come and see our little place out here! Until next week, y’all have a Christ centered week and don’t forget to give somebody a hug this week!

tell you to watch out for the new speed limit posted through Garland. It was 40 mph then the state raised it to 45 mph in the east bound lane. It was never changed in the westbound lane. Well now, the speed limit has been changed back to 40. I wish they’d make up their

minds. If you have any information for future articles, you can reach me at 901476-2683 or email me at kellumeddie@yahoo.com. Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great week. Eddie

Hello from Burlison. Well, what do you think about all this snow? I love this global warming don’t you? Paula says if our planet keeps on warming like this, we’re all going to freeze to death. The young folks just seem to love this weather. I’m old and grumpy and need some sunshine. I’ve read stories about mountain men going crazy with ‘cabin fever.” I believe that would surely happen to me if I had to stay inside for very long without the sun. My son Adam told me the other day that I should start interviewing people that live here in the Burlison area and

my long time friend Stanley Lawrence who had a birthday on Monday, Feb. 8. I think Stanley is about 100 years old or so. My daughter Shanna will be graduating from college on May 1 and will then be going to graduate school in the fall. We still aren’t sure where she’ll be going. She has several options and hasn’t made a choice yet. Shanna did tell me what she wanted as a graduation present. She said she would like a new set of tires for her car, a vacation to Universal Studios in Florida or a house. What happened to the “good ole days” when you could give them a $20? My son, Adam will also be graduating this year from Covington High School. Adam is getting prepared to go to

include those interviews in the article each week. Adam said that he believes the people that live here would love to know what all the other citizens are thinking about. You know I believe he may just be right. I know that everyone has a story if we would just take time to hear it. That being said, if anyone would like to be interviewed and share their thoughts for the Burlison article, please give me a call. I would like to wish my brother John Wayne and his lovely wife Tina belated birthday wishes. Tina’s birthday was on Friday, Feb. 5 and John Wayne’s was Saturday, Feb. 6. I think they’re both in the 49 and holding group. I’d also like to wish a happy birthday to

Wrather to host Dentist with a Heart By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com COVINGTON – It's that time of year again - love is in the air! Valentine's Day is February 14, but the staff at Wrather Dental Center wants to help the community celebrate a little early. On Thursday, Feb. 11, Dr. Wrather and his staff, along with Dr. Ganier and his crew, will be working side-by-side providing our patients with a dental need that has become a Covington tradition. Since its inception in 2002, the program has provided more than 280 people with more than $121,000 in dental treatment. Last year, the dentists saw 30 patients and gave away $21,835 in free dentistry. The staff is eagerly making arrangements for this year’s event. Each year, patients begin arriving as early as 12:30 a.m. the night before in order to be first in line

Last poet standing contest A $1,000 prize is being offered to the last poet standing in a contest sponsored by the Christian Poets Guild. Poems of 21 lines or fewer on any subject and in any style will be judged by the guild contest director Dr. Jack Carroll. "We love encouraging poets," he said. The contest is free to enter and open to poets of any age. Fifty prizes totaling more than $5,000 will be awarded. Entries must be received by Feb. 28 and may be submitted by mail to 7308 Heritage Dr., Mt. Vernon, IN 47620 or at www.freecontest.com. Those sending entries should include their name and address on the same page as the poem. A winners list will be sent to all entrants.

PET OF THE WEEK The staff at Wrather Dental Center will host the annual Dentist with a Heart on Feb. 11.

for the Free Dental Day. The public now knows that patients are seen on a first come, first serve basis. However, not everyone will be able to be seen. They will be able to see only about the first 30 or 40 individuals to arrive. Dr. Wrather and Dr. Gainer will be providing the best care and best

staff available. They will be offering free x-rays, cleanings, extractions, resins and other emergency treatments. Patients must be over the age of 13 and anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who can remain with them for the duration of their treatment. Health histories will be filled out

so the staff asks that all potential patients bring all current medications. The door will open at 8 a.m. so get in line early. The staffs of Drs. Wrather and Gainer hope to see you there. The coffee pot will be on and they’ll be waiting for you. The office is located at 720 West Sherrod Avenue in Covington.

We at C.A.R.E. would like to thank all the sponsors, fosters and families that have cared for and adopted over 150 dogs since March of 09. Recently the Covington library did a dog food fund raiser which we greatly appreciate! These dogs would not have had their 2nd chances in life without every one of you! We continue to rescue dogs from the Covington city pound, foster the dogs while we get them updated on their shots and spay & neutered. Then we find the dogs their forever home. We will be having fund raisers in the near future and could use your help in the mean time. If you would like to help please contact us through our website at: www.covingtonanimalrescueeffort.com. We appreciate your financial support. It is through donations to our non-profit group that helps us continue to save dogs and puppies. Brice is the pet of the week. She is a loving girl that needs a very loving home. Please see our website for an application. We encourage you to spay and neuter your pets to keep down the pet population.

Early surge leads TRA past Fayette Academy By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com The Tipton-Rosemark Academy Rebels hit the road Friday night and came back with a win.

TRA’s big early lead was threatened in the fourth quarter, but the Rebels had enough to pull out a 60-49 win. After jumping out to a 36-21 halftime lead, TRA

was outscored 11-3 in the third quarter as the Vikings trimmed the lead to seven points. But a final surge pulled TRA through. J. T. Moody had a solid

game, leading three players in double figures with 13 points. Vinny Giannino and Wilson Prestage each added 11 for the Rebels. Ethan Moffett led Fayette Academy with 25

points. The Lady Rebels ran into one of the better girls’ teams in the area and fell 49-13. Fayette Academy moved to 21-1 after jump-

ing out to a 26-6 halftime lead. Juliann McCommon led TRA with five points. Emily Reeves led Fayette Academy with 14.

Lady Chargers upend Brighton; Chargers shoot down Cardinals

Chargers shoot down Cardinals 103-69 Brighton’s 17 first half turnovers last Saturday at Covington could have been due to Covington’s smothering defensive pressure or they could have been caused from an inability to see due to the smoke from the fire of CHS’ blazing offense. Either way, it is safe

to say that on Senior Night in Castellaw Gym on Feb. 6, the Covington Chargers put an end to the game early as they scored 39 first period points and 71 in the first half on their way to a 103-69 beat down of their in-county archrivals. The win gave CHS (17-7, 122) bragging rights for the Tipton County basketball championship as they swept their games with Brighton and Munford this season. The standing room crowd was roaring in the first quarter as CHS drained eight long-range jumpers from beyond the three-point line. A thunderous slam dunk from Lester Gude over a Brighton defender brought the house to its feet and punctuated the high scoring outburst mid-way in the period. Brighton had no answer for the Charger offense or for their quickness to loose balls or their defensive pressure and trailed by 24, 39-15 at period’s end. The Cardinal offense picked up in the second period on strong offensive play from Demetrius Dyson whose 23 points led the Cardinals (11-11, 4-3,13 AAA) in scoring on the night but it was too little too late as

Chargers demolish Cavaliers CHS did not have it’s largest point production of the season last Friday against Crockett County in its 70-34 mercy rule District 13 AA win over the Cavaliers but it may have been one of their better defensive showings of the season. Forcing 17 of the visitors 25 turnovers in the first half, the Charger press seemed to completely frustrate and demoral-

ize Crockett County to the point that their offensive output diminished to just 12 points in the second half. Crockett County did hold a 2-0 lead before the Chargers went on a 9-0 spurt to never be headed. CHS lead by 7, 19-12, after the 1st period and by 20, 42-22, at the midgame break. The lead had stretched to 32 by the end of the third period, as Coach Real was able to get some PT for the bench. Twelve Chargers got in the books with points on the board in the game. Carl McKenzie of CHS and Tim Frye of Crockett Co. shared game scoring honors with 17 points each. The Cavaliers made only five baskets from the floor in the first half but were deadly from the free throw line shooting 91 percent (10/11). They did not get to the stripe in the second half. CHS did not fare as well, shooting 46 percent (6/13) from the line. Their nine turnovers did compare more favorably with Crockett’s 25, however. The Chargers improved their season record to 16-7, 12-2 while Crockett County fell to 10-11, 6-9.

Covington jumped out to a huge lead early Saturday night and defeated Brighton 103-69.

A

Depleted by injuries and defections, the Covington Lady Chargers, down to only seven available players, pulled off a season sweep of the Crockett County Lady Cavaliers, 58-57 last Friday night. The strength of six of eight free throws from Nykie Grandberry and Ke’Suana Griggs within the last minute of the game secured the win. The victory assured CHS (6-17, 4-10) of the seventh seed in the upcoming District 13 AA post-season tournament. Crockett County fell to 8-14, 2-12 on the season. Another slow offensive start by the Lady Chargers saw them fall behind after one period 12-8. CHS’ leading scorer, Dominique Ross, spent much of the quarter on the bench saddled with two personal fouls. Coach Howse rolled the dice and put her back in to start the second frame only to see her pick up a third foul at the sixminute mark causing her to sit again. Sophomore forward Iesha Carruthers picked up the slack with eight of her 13 points, three steals and several

rebounds in the period to help pull CHS to within one, 21-20, at the half. Covington pulled ahead mid-way in the third quarter stretching the lead to five at one point before settling for a 38-35 bulge going to the final period. The lead seesawed throughout the fourth with Ross and Grandberry providing most of the scoring punch. They combined for 15 of CHS’ 20 points in the quarter but could not defend much as both had four personal fouls. Carruthers provided the clincher with an offensive rebound with :07 remaining to seal the CHS win. Ross took game scoring honors with 21 points.

the Chargers continued their offensive onslaught to lead by 30 at the half 7141. CHS did not let off the gas in the third period and at one point led by as many as 46 points. The team entered the fourth period with a running clock and CHS leading 98-55. With the point spread, Coach Real was able to get playing time for his seniors and one, Darrius Hawkins, had his best night of the year scoring eight points. The other Charger seniors playing in their final regular season home game had a productive night as well. Carl McKenzie led all scorers with 26 points for CHS. His senior teammates Cortez Foster had nine; Lester Gude 17 and James McClain 11 points in their farewell appearances before the home crowd. CHS took good care of the ball turning it over only seven times to 22 give-aways for the Cardinals. The Chargers were also respectable at the free throw line shooting 73 percent (19/26) for the night while the Cardinals shot 75 percent (12/16). Covington is on a 10 game win streak heading into its final two District 13 AA regular season games at Gibson County and Westview. They have an outside shot at overtaking Ripley for the number one seed in the District 13 AA tournament, which begins at Obion County on Feb. 15.

E

For the first time this season, the Covington Lady Chargers put together back-to-back wins with their 66-58 victory over the Brighton Lady Cardinals at Covington last Saturday. The win gave the Lady Chargers a season sweep over their mid-county rivals. Covington (7-17,4-10) led by five after the first quarter, 19-14, primarily on the strength of Ke’Suana Griggs 11 points in the period. She nailed three of the Lady Chargers’ four buckets from beyond the 3-point arc to jump-start what had been a dormant offense of late. Brighton made a run in the second period to pull closer at the half down 31-27. The Lady Cardinals (712) outscored CHS by 2 in the third period to enter the final frame trailing by two, 47-45. They had briefly pulled ahead for their only lead of the game late in the period but deadly free throw shooting by Atika Burnett who was 7/8 from the line on the night erased that lead. The fourth quarter was a parade to the foul line by

both teams. CHS had the better of it in attempts and makes shooting 30/48 (62 percent) while the Lady Cardinals hit 14 of 24 attempts for 58 percent from the stripe. Turnovers were minimal in CHS’ favor at 9 to 10. CHS’ senior forward, Dominique Ross, in her final home appearance, led all scorers with 21 points. Griggs contributed 18 in the winning effort. Demiah Eaton paced the Lady Cardinals with 15 points. Jasmine Pittman with 11 and Britt Sanford with 10 points were the only other Brighton players in double figures. The Lady Chargers have regular season games remaining with Gibson County and Westview before the District 13 AA tournament, which begins next week at Obion County.

Bankruptcy? W Have a Coke and a smile Law Firm

Chapter 7 Chapter 13

Call the Attorneys at Ward Williams, PLLC

By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com The Coca-Cola Company began using the slogan “Have a Coke and a smile” in 1979 and Austin Peay Elementary is making it their own in 2010. Always on the lookout for creative ways to teach and promote art, art teacher Jenna Lowery continually raises the bar and moved it up another notch this month. The students’ latest art project? A life-sized mosaic of a Coca-Cola bottle. The materials used? More than 12,000 Coke bottle lids. “We had just finished a project on mosaics where the students learned about leaving space in between pictures but that it all comes together to form unity,” explained Lowery. “They also learned about collages and contrast, so this idea was really a perfect way to reinforce those ideas.” More than 40 boxes of Coke bottle tops were given to the school by a parent who works for the Coca-Cola Company in

Memphis. “I’m always searching for items to use in art and a student’s father donated the boxes of CocaCola bottle tops,” said Lowery. “We only used three of the boxes. I have plenty left over to use for years,” she added, laughing. At first, Lowery said she was at a loss of what to do with the tens of thousands of colorful, plastic lids. “He donated them and I thought what in the world am I going to do with all those Coke bottle lids,” she said, laughing. “I started brainstorming and we had just finished the mosaics so I thought it would be neat to do a collage. My husband, Glenn, actually came up with the idea. He said why don’t you do a Coke bottle since the lids are Coke bottle tops.” The art project was a collaborative effort of the fourth grade students and took more than three weeks to complete. Lowery drew out the mural using small pieces of boards. The students task

was to determine the correct color of lids to glue to their boards. “The kids worked in groups on individual boards,” she said. “It took them a few weeks to finish it. I had drawn out on the board and then my husband cut out the pieces. They were really excited because they were working with separate boards. All they saw was the colors, but when it all came together they could see the picture.” The mosaic takes up the entire wall across from the music room and will stay up until after Austin Peay’s annual art show in April. “I’ll probably leave it up for a few months and then take down,” she said. “I’m constantly adding and changing. We’re going to do a big art show in April so we’ll leave it up until then.” The entire student body seems to love the mural, said Lowery. “There’s something about it that just draws the students to it,” she laughed. “They just seem to have to touch it. The

kids were so excited because it was something totally different. It’s something they can do as a team. That was actually the most fun, watching them work as a team.”

Learn, plan, prepare... Feb. 7-12 is Earthquake Awareness Week 2010 By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com The images of the devastation left in the wake of the magnitude 7.0 quake which struck Haiti almost a month ago are still fresh in the minds of people and communities around

the world. The powerful quake struck the crowded island nation shortly before 5 p.m., and generated tremors reaching Cuba, located more than 200 miles away. The quake’s aftermath has left more than an estimated 200,000 dead and damage estimates put

the cost of cleanup in the billions. Although those living in West Tennessee hope to never have to deal with such a quake, the reality is it is a strong possibility. The New Madrid fault system, which stretches 40 miles wide and 200

Covington-Tipton County Chamber of Commerce executive director Lee Johnston shows off the survival items available in an pre-made earthquake disaster kit available at The Chamber.

Be prepared to survive a disaster: Keep a well-stocked emergency kit By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com If a major earthquake were to strike the Mid-South area, residents may have to rely on their own survival skills to cope during the immediate days following the disaster. Emergency personnel may be unable to assist the many people who will need help. To better survive an earthquake, families should ensure they have essential supplies on hand. The University of Memphis Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI), recommends a 10-day supply of water, food and medicine. Emergency supplies should be adequate for at least 72 hours. At a minimum, the following items are recommended to be kept as a part of a family’s earthquake survival kit. Survival supplies • Water – two quarts to one gallon per person, per day. • First aid kit – ample, and freshly stocked. • First aid manual – know how to use it. • Food – canned or individually packaged; pre-cooked, requiring minimum heat and water. Consider infants, pets, and other special dietary requirements. • Critical medication, extra eyeglasses • Can opener • Blankets • Radio – portable battery operated and spare batteries • Critical medication and eyeglasses, contact cases and supplies • Fire extinguisher – dry chemical, type ABC • Flashlight – spare batteries and bulbs • Watch or clock-battery or spring wound. • Bar-b-que – use outdoors ONLY charcoal and lighter, or a Sterno stove • Plastic bags – various sizes, sealable • Pots – at least two • Paper plates, plastic utensils, and paper towels SANITATION • Large plastic trash bags – for trash, waste, water protection • Ground cloth • Large trash cans • Hand soap, liquid detergent, shampoo • Toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental floss • Deodorant • Feminine supplies

• Infant supplies • Toilet paper • Powdered chlorinated lime-to add to sewage to disinfect and keep away insects. • Newspapers-to wrap waste, garbage; may also be used for warmth. Safety • Heavy shoes for every family member • Heavy gloves for every person cleaning debris • Candles • Matches-dipped in wax and kept in waterproof container • Knife-sharp, or razor blades • Garden hose-for siphoning and fire fighting • Clothes-complete change kept dry Tools • Axe • Shovel • Broom • Crescent wrench-for turning off gas main • Screwdrivers • Pliers • Hammer • Rope or bailing wire • Plastic tape • Pen and paper Mini Survival Kit for Automobile • Non-perishable food – store in coffee cans • Boiled water • First aid kit and manual • Fire extinguisher • Blanket • Sealable plastic bags • Flashlight – spare fresh batteries and bulb • Critical medication, extra eyeglasses • Tools – screwdriver, pliers, wire, knife • Short rubber hose • Pre-moistened towelettes • Feminine supplies • Sturdy shoes and gloves Prepared emergency kits should be inventoried and checked each year for item expiration. It is crucial to be self-sufficient by storing emergency kits in your home, car, office and/or school, since no one can predict where we will be when a disaster strikes. For more information on how to prepare for an earthquake, please contact the Covington-Tipton County Emergency Management Agency at 476-0222.

miles long, runs straight through Tipton County and is considered the greatest earthquake threat in our country. Earthquakes occur less frequently along the New Madrid fault system, but because of the underlying geology, when they do, they cause more damage. For that reason, the second week of February is designated as earthquake awareness week. West Tennessee Earthquake Awareness Week is Feb. 7-12, and is a mutual community effort of the University of Memphis Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI), the Central United States Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC) and several state, federal, and non-governmental agencies to increase awareness to the potential of an earthquake disaster. Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Center for Earthquakes Research and Information at the University of Memphis believe the possibility of a moderate earthquake occurring along the New Madrid Seismic Zone in the near future is high. The most recent earthquakes recorded in West Tennessee occurred on Monday, Jan. 18, six miles southeast of Wilson, Ark, nine miles northwest of Munford and it measured as a magnitude 2.3 event, happening at 1:32 a.m. A magnitude 3.4 minor earthquake was recorded just after midnight at 12:39 a.m., on Friday, Nov. 6, four miles northwest of Dyersburg. A major quake along the lower end of the fault today could cause billions of dollars in damage and many injuries and deaths, especially if the event occurs during the day. Preparing for an earthquake can greatly reduce the risks of injury or death and will allow you to handle basic needs following an earthquake. Since no one can predict when the next quake will occur, it is essential

everyone is prepared at work, at home and on the road. Following are some guidelines for actions before, during, and after an earthquake to avoid serious injury to you and others. Before an earthquake • Have an earthquake survival kit on hand. • All family members should know how to turn off gas, water and electricity. • Plan family emergency procedures and make plans for reuniting your family. • Know emergency telephone numbers (doctor, hospital, police, 911, etc.) • Anchor heavy objects to walls (bookcases, wall units, mirrors, cabinets, etc.) • Never place heavy objects over beds, and keep heavy objects lower than head height of shortest member of family. During an earthquake: stay calm! • Inside, stand in doorway, or crouch under a desk or table, well away from windows or glass dividers. • Outside, stand away from buildings, trees, telephones and electrical lines. • On the road, drive away from underpasses and overpasses; stop in safe area; stay in vehicle. After an earthquake: • Check for injuries-provide first aid.

• Check for safety-check for gas, water, sewage breaks; check for downed power lines and shorts; turn off appropriate utilities. • Check for building damage and potential problems during aftershocks. • Clean up dangerous spills. • Wear shoes • Turn on the radio and listen for instructions from public safety agencies. • Use telephone for emergencies only. Pre-made earthquake kits, a $125 value, can be purchased from the Covington-Tipton County Chamber of Commerce for $50. These kits make good traveling kits for college kids and includes: flashlight and batteries, two twin/full blankets, weather radio, fire extinguisher, can opener, Beanee Weenies or Vienna Sausage, canned food, four bottles of water, Keep T.C. Beautiful litter bags, spoons, Ziploc bags, Handiwipes, first aid kit, dried fruit, Jello (good for hypothermia), Earthquake Information. Contact The Chamber at 476-9727 for more information.

Brighton By Debe Simonton 268-0091 I'm so sorry about last week. I usually wait to write my column on Monday nights so I'll have all the news I can possibly get, and wouldn't you know I was fine one minute and the next I was hit by some "bodyslammin’'' stomach bug. So needless to say I was not sitting by the computer putting in the column that night. Tuesday was even worse. I stayed home from work which is very uncommon for me and I was so sick my dear husband decided not to leave me to go to work. So if any of you out there have had this bug you know what I mean. My tummy is still not right yet and food is just not appealing either. That means I have really been under the weather cause I love to eat! I have had a few inquiries about my adventure with my sister to the house my grandparents had built. And we are still waiting on some more informa-

tion about the house and when they are scheduling to take it down. So I’ll keep you posted on that. However, because of this interest in the home, I have investigated some other family history. My Mother’s side of the family was from Carroll County, Ga. Buena Vista to be exact. When I was younger and inquired about the family cemetery, she would tell me that it was located outside of the old farmhouse of the Spellings. The farmhouse burned down a number of years ago and she felt that the land would probably be unidentifiable as far as locating the family plot. So I got on the internet and found out that there is a Spellings Cemetery in Buena Vista and also on Spellings Cemetery Road. I hope the weather breaks soon so Neal and I can drive up there to see what we can find. And this I will keep you posted on as well. You know this is a very small world. This is a great example. My sister-in-law, Jane Carol, and her husband, Jim, live

outside the Washington D.C. area in Springfield, Va. Jim retired from the Marines as a full colonel but still does contract work for the Pentagon. Bette Graves' brother and wife were here from Virginia, week before last to visit. He is a full colonel and retired from the Marines as well. He also does contract work for the Pentagon. Well wouldn't you know they know each other. How wild is that! I couldn't believe here in little Brighton that two retired Marines would have family here and be working in my little salon. My prayer list is Dorothy Cordle, Phyllis McIntosh, Lindsey Wilson, Mary Sam White, Joyce Starnes, and Louise Vandergrift. I hear that Becky Coulston may be needing my services again! I'm so excited and thankful for this blessing. We love and miss you. And same for Ms. Dorothy. I hope your getting around now. The high school is so behind that it is hard to report their news, But here goes. The CTE Leaders Council Clothing Closet

Mt. Carmel/Clopton By Elaine Watkins 476-7093

It’s a beautiful Tuesday morning! We got an unexpected big snow early yesterday morning, then sleet and more snow, then more snow last night! I’m looking out my window at a row of cedar trees that are laden with snow gorgeous! The sun is shining and there’s a deep blue sky behind them. Think I’ll get my camera! Some snow had been hanging around since the snow of the 29th of January so I knew more was coming. James and I finally got out on Thursday and picked up meds, truck tags and stopped for milk. Friday night I had set up a dinner and movie for the girls at church, since we missed our retreat last weekend because of snow. So seven of us, Judy Dunaway, Laura Craft, Charlene Dalrymple, Cammy Evans, Ginger Sallee, Kristin Sallee and I ate dinner in Munford then went to see “When In Rome,” which was very good and also clean. Plus Josh Duhamel was in it so we all had to giggle over him on the way home! We decided to do it once a month. Saturday Cammy Evans, Laura Craft, Linda Byars, Heather Keith and I drove to Memphis to see “Jersey Boys” at the Orpheum, eating lunch at the Spaghetti Warehouse before. The music was great and the man who played Frankie Valli was perfect but the language was atrocious. We concentrated on the music. It was a fun day though. Cammy, Heather and I, who were riding together, ended up at Wolfchase and we did a little shopping before heading home. Laura Craft’s daughter, Morgan Smith, has just returned from a stint in Haiti, working in a hospital taking care of the earthquake victims there. It’s part of her nurse practitioner class and we are so proud of her and glad she’s home safely. Elizabeth went and ate lunch

with us on Sunday after church in town. I hadn’t seen her in two weeks! I was sick one Sunday, we didn’t have church last Sunday because of snow, and she’d been working or sleeping during the week so . . . I hugged her when she sat down by me at church! She came over yesterday for a little while, till the snow covered the roads again and she headed home, and brought a CD with 3-D ultrasound on it for James and me to watch. Little Lyla Grace sucking her thumb, stretching her arms, yawning. Amazing! We stayed till halftime at the Super Bowl party at church Sunday night. Wings, chips and drinks were provided and folks brought other finger foods. Good close game but my team lost. They said last night that 11 fans met the Colts when they got home. Sore losers! All of New Orleans was one big party! Frelan Holbrook has been in the hospital with pneumonia but is back at home. Preston Stanley hasn’t had his tubes put in his ears yet - always postponed for some reason. Jenni Lanston is in our prayers and Roy Randolph is coughing again - we are hoping he doesn’t develop pneumonia again. Take care, Roy! Delores Whaley’s mother is slowly improving. Elaine Naifeh, Shirley Jones, Gaynell Clay, Clara Phelps, Dee Fletcher and Claire Mosley, who has had a slight stroke, are also on our prayer list. Singles and couples are invited to our “Hang Ten” Valentine Banquet on the 13th, Hawaiian theme, 6:30 p.m. Happy birthday this week goes to Karen Wall on Feb. 8th, to Rusty Cartwright and John Dickey on the 9th, to Gordon Cartwright and David Kidd on the 10th and to Brandy Brown on the 12th! My sympathy goes to Connie G. Fisher, Donnie Griffin and Eddie Griffin in the passing a of

Almyra

their mother last week. I remember her well. All that family has my prayers. This week’s CK Report: CK has hard a hard time eating with all the snow and ice on his step (or her step!). I poured snow out of the bowl yesterday morning and fed the cat, then at dusk CK was meowing for food so when I started to pour in the food, the bowl was full of snow again! I tried to sweep the step off this morning so the cat wouldn’t have to stand on the snow to eat but it was too hardened for a broom. The chickens have sat on the railing of the deck all week, not wanting to get down in the snow. All three of them, the chickens and the cat, were in a row the other day and I took a picture. “Thanks for Reading” this week goes to Charles Farmer, Doug Billings, Jimmie Millican, Otis Griffin (loved reading about the dehorning, etc., last week), Charlotte Draffin, Laura Craft and Brandi Mignon and her hubby. Big Sa-lute! I received a call from Jimmie Millican last week. He and Otis Griffin had been trying to remember the little mosquito repellent things that you used to buy at the drive-in theaters in the summer and put on the dash of your car. What were they called? I told him right off, “Pics” and he couldn’t wait to call Otis and tell him. Glad I could help. I told him I could see and smell a Pic as we were talking! Brains are funny that way! By the way, I cleaned out my under-the-sink kitchen cabinet, lined the floor, organized and put a couple of those stick-up lights down here and it looks nice. (Guess I’m “nesting” with Liz!) When I was pushing the roll of liner in to measure where to cut, it hit the plug-in of the dishwasher and it went to humming! Yay! Thanks for reading to Fay Hughes. Happy Valentine’s Day to all my readers! Until next week . . .Elaine

Kim Grey in your prayers at this time. Happy birthdays go out to last week’s and this week’s; Rose Eubank, Lonnie Osbourn, Payson McDaniel, Judy Baum, Farrah Cope, Kyle Strickland, Debra Bolton, Michal Sterling, Rosemary Fite and Ruth Ray. Hope they are each the greatest.

By Libby Click Hi everyone. Staying in these days? Now we have some idea what living on the northeast coast could be like. I'll stay below the Mason Dixon and take my chances here. This snow was actually beautiful. The trees looked like a winter wonderland. When I got up, I began getting ready to go to McDonalds for breakfast. Charlie said, you might want to look outside first. When I did I couldn't believe it. Upon going to bed Sunday night, the weather men said it was going to Dyersburg. I guess it did. I understand Memphis got more than we did. Charlie and I took our chances and went on. As usual, there's always some of the same folks there. The snow was so fresh it was easy travel. Of course at that time no ice had formed on the roads. The rest of the mornings were different. No McDonalds. I'm ready for spring and summer now. We only had one basketball game last week. Chase Kidd's team won their game at the old Brighton gym Thursday night. My little Addie finally got to build a snowman in this pretty, soft snow. She and her mom and two brothers built a chipmunk snowman. Of course it was different, with big old round cheeks and a chipmunk nose instead of the carrot nose. Something different I guess. Last Saturday night, Charlie and I went to Billy and Ann Chapman's house for a church fellowship and meal. Ann had made some chicken and dressing. Needless to say it was great, along with all the other homemade dishes as well. Then come Sunday evening "the" football game of the year,

is still collecting winter wear and winter coats. I am sure this is a tough time to be without warm clothes so if you can part with any of your winter clothes I am sure that it would be so greatly appreciated. Basketball games are winding down to tournament time. Feb. 12 will be at Dyer Co. and 19 through 23 will be the District Tournament at Dyer County. Feb 26 will begin regional tournaments and this location will be announced. I have one more story to tell before I let you go. This will require some visualizing. So try to picture this, okay? My husband is a real safety freak. Danielle, 29 years old, occasionally goes to see her grandmother and aunt in Raleigh. Every time we have to listen to this ritual of Neal's " Be safe, look around, be aware of your surroundings, do you need a knife or anything, etc." So she sets off on this 20 minute drive to her Meme's. She pulls into the driveway to see her aunt and grandmother chasing their little miniature Yorkie, Pedro, out the door and

Sharon Presbyterian Church Worship is at 9 a.m. each Sunday morning. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. Everyone always welcome. We are always so thankful for our Dunlap residents. the Superbowl. The New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts. The Saints came out on top this time. Personally, I'd rather be watching basketball. However we enjoyed the fellowship and watching all the boys getting excited. We had a fellowship meal following our Sunday evening service and stayed to watch the game. Actually, Charlie and I left at halftime. "We The People" of the Tipton County Tea Party organization are now meeting at a new location. We will now be meeting at the Chamber of Commerce Center, the new one on the square at 7 p.m. on Tuesday Feb. 16 in Covington. Please feel free to join us. You no longer have to bring your chairs. It is of course a non-partisan group. Salem Presbyterian Church Worship is at 11 a.m. each Sunday morning. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister.

Happy birthday this week goes to Karen Wall, Rusty Cartwright, John Dickey, Gordon Cartwright, David Kidd and Brandy Brown. Hope they are the greatest. Please remember Brother Evins as he left this week for Iraq. Our other military as well: Andy Harrington, Brittany Sallee Deann Carter, Jordan Carpenter, Jacob Carpenter, Jessica Whaley, Bryce Mosley, Zachary Nance, Cody Erwin and my nephew, John Wallace. In closing please be careful and drive slowly in this mess. I guess I'll have to say a happy "old" birthday to my son-in-law, David Kidd. Hope it's a great day, buddy. Have a great week everyone. Oh yes, don't forget your Valentine.

down the sidewalk. The dog has stolen her Meme's false teeth. She said the teeth were so big in his mouth that he would flip them up to keep the grip so it looked like he was smiling. Danielle said as she watched this craziness take place all she could think about was how her dad was so anxious about her safety, and laugh. It is Valentines! All you significant halves, spouses, friends, whatevers put on your thinking caps and really try to put your feelings into your gift. Take time and actually do something (a candlelit dinner), send the kids to the babysitters and, be creative with your romance. This really means a lot more sometimes than the dollar amount that most of us don't have at the moment. The football boosters are still taking strawberry orders call me for more information. To my friends of the week, Katrina Hamilton, the Stitt family, Ms. Geraldine Rhodes, Ms. Mary Dell Boyd, Rebena Atteberry, LaVonne Hahn, and of course all those Crocker girls!

Jamestown DarSay Burton 476-1414 Greetings. Finally all of our leaves have fallen from these trees in our yard. And it’s about time too, because there are oh so many leaves in our yard, front as well as the back. Thank the Lord for whomever it was that invented the electric leaf blower. It is a Godsend. So, now all we’re waiting on is the first warm day to blow and bag these leaves. Now for the news. LaRue Albritton, Jolly Corteria Club president and her ladies are all geared up for this Saturday’s “Knock’em Dead In Red” Fashion Show sponsored by The Frazier Alumni Organization in Covington. Kickoff time for this event will be 6 p.m. and the admission is $5. Once again this event will be held at the Frazier Center. Bright Hill M. B. Church and pastor, S. P. Cole, kicked this Sunday morning’s service off by saluting Black History Month. After morning service there was a short program highlighting two young men from the youth department. Cameron Terry who read a poem in honor of this historical month. His mother is Katarene Harber. Also Michael Andrews recited a poem about Black History facts. He’s the youngest son and child of Romel and Minister Pearl Andrews. He is the grandson of Mamie Andrews of Covington and the great grandson of Ruth Griffin of Ripley. At Cummings Street, my church in Memphis, our choirs highlighted the late great Rev. James Cleveland. On Sunday morning they sang, “I Don’t Feel No Ways Tired.” Rev. Gary L. Faulkner is senior pastor. We are located on 250 E. Raines Road in Memphis. Services 10:30 until 11:45 a.m. I have been persistent almost to the point of begging all of you Jamestownites still living here as well as now living elsewhere to step up to the plate with paying your $25 dues in order to help with the upkeep of Dickens Cemetery in Jamestown as well as to ensure we have monies for our college scholarship funds. Come on now, almost all of us have loved ones in Dickens and at least a family member’s child preparing for college. All of us are fully aware of another fact; $25 won’t be buying to much of anything else in this bad economy. So sit down right now and make out your check or money order (or you can pay in cash) toward this cause which is a great one. You can contact any of JCHO members. Don’t think about doing it, do it now. On our prayer list this week are Earnest Stokes, husband of Vera (Lois) Burton-Stokes; Alvin

Clewis, brother of Willie Mae Burton; Jennie Stewart, Bessie Cobbs, Demetrice Baker, Posie Reed, Joseph Heaston Sr., Jeffery Mosley Sr., Vernard “Big Boy” Burton, Rev. Pink Sherrill Jr., Cornell Sherrill, Theary Alston, Willie Parthenia Hodge, Pauline Yarbrough, Florene Trent, Isiah Burton Sr. and family, Connie and Christine Brown, Caesar Burton and family, Rudolph Boykins and family, Mildred Sherrill and family, Ina Yarbrough, Arvis Fletcher and family, Patra Ballard, Charlotta Jones, J. C. Heaston, Jessie Lawson, Eddie B. and Flossie Woods, Nadine Kellum and family, Johnnie Thompson, Eula Culbreath and family, David Sneed, Charlene Sneed, Rev. Darryl Rozzell and family, Vivian Dickerson and family, Rhonda Heaston-McLin and family, Joe Malone and family, John Bommer and family, Franklin Jones Sr., Ruth Griffin, Gigi Baker, Bro. Warren Clewis, Ethel Tipton, Nadine and Fletcher Dickerson and family, Rufus Garner, John Bunton, Percy White and family, Robert Smith and family, Fred Dowell and Louise “Wolfe” Williamson. Happy birthday this week to my great-grandniece who turned one year old on Sunday, Feb. 7, Gianna Bell, granddaughter of Joann Bell and daughter of Walter “Joey” and Jeri Bell of Murfreesboro. Ms. Gianna was honored in her home witha “first birthday gala” thrown by her parents. The birthday lady wore a lovely red laced birthday dress. Of course she looked lovely as always. Others celebrating birthdays are William Booner on Feb. 10; Jeffery Mosley and Judge Kenneth Armstrong on Feb. 11; Evangeline Clewis on Feb. 12, Janee Jackson on Feb. 13. Our Valentine babies, Walter “Joey” Bell III, Julian Gray and Aundrea Harber on Feb. 14 and to Thomas Burton and Angela Norris on Feb. 15 and to you out there celebrating your big day this week. Congratulations to Super Bowl 44 Champs N. O. Saints and the city of New Orleans, who sealed the deal last Sunday with a brilliant interception by Tracy Porter in the final minutes of the game. President Mary Burton and teacher Willie Mae Burton meet at 5 p.m. at The Center for missionary meeting on Monday night depending on the weather. Hopefully the weather will return to normal. Once again in recognition of Black History Month, let us never forget all of the many great achievements made by those gone on as well as those still burning, the midnight oil. For it’s because of their efforts that all of us, white and black, can forge ahead to a much better and brighter day. Remember, It still takes a village, to raise a child. Until next time.

She was shook up....but no injuries. We just thank the Good Lord for no injuries to her....but the car was sure messed up. Our granddaughter was at church Sunday and we were all thanking God.

Hi folks! Well snow has hit us again. There is an old tale that says, if snow lies on the ground for three days, there will be another one in a few days. Sounds like it is true. Hope you all did not have any trouble during the snow storms.

Our 19-year-old grand daughter, in her second year at Baptist Nursing School, was coming home from school last Tuesday night at about 9:30 p.m. via Marshall Road. She hit black ice and ran off the road down into a ravine. Thanks to all the people
