Tipton County declared disaster area By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com After unprecedented rainfall on May 1, last week Tipton County was one of dozens declared disaster areas by President Barack Obama. The declaration makes federal funding in the form of low-interest loans available to flood victims. “I appreciate the speedy approvals of these counties for assistance by President Obama and the federal

government,” said Bredesen. “Making these resources available in these additional counties will help those who have suffered losses begin to rebuild their homes and their lives.” On May 2, County Executive Jeff Huffman said the estimated damage to public infrastructure was estimated at $5.5 million, leading him to declare the county a disaster area. Last week, the estimate was well over $20 million and climbing. On May 5, federal officials authorized

declarations for Montgomery and Dyer counties in addition to McNairy, Perry, Shelby and Tipton. At press time, 42 Tennessee counties had been declared disaster areas by the federal government. “I’ve lived here all my life,” Huffman said. “I’ve never seen it like this. We’re used to tornadoes and straight-line winds damaging parts of our county. This is the first time I’ve seen damage to the north, south, east and west, the entire county. That’s 452 square

miles.” Tipton County Emergency Management Agency Director Tommy Dunavant encourages victims to document their damages the best they can. “People need to document their losses, take pictures of their damage and get the wet stuff out of their house,” he said. “Once the mold and mildew set in, FEMA’s not going to cover it.” Individual assistance can include grants to help pay for temporary housSEE FEMA, PAGE A15

s the flood waters descended and washed away from many Tipton County homes and businesses, they still managed to leave their mark everywhere they had gone. While much of the focus has been on families and their homes, hundreds of businesses have been affected by the floods that came and conquered West Tennessee on Saturday, May 1. Some of them are trudging onward, but many are having to close permanently. One of the worst hit areas was in the south end of the county near Millington. The conglomerate of businesses located on Big Creek Drive and Quinton Drive in Munford off of Highway 51 South were nearly drowned as water as deep as eight feet engulfed the area. Clayton Allen owns several operations located on Quinton Drive. He has contacted several insurance companies for estimates of damages on the contents of many businesses on the street. The Head 2 Toe Sports store damages range about $55,000. Clay Millican’s Mark Pickens Enterprises Motorsports business has damages around $25,000. The Munford Banquet Hall had contents damages of $150,000 and exterior damages of $55,000. However, on Tuesday Allen, his wife and other workers were hard at work getting

Dumpsters lined the street as business owners, employees and other volunteers threw away the entire contents of stores that had been destroyed by the vicious waters. RJ’s Restaurant and Bar, also on Quinton Drive, was completely hollowed out. Several panels in the ceiling had been knocked out by the debris from the flood, which shows high how the waters actually rose. There is also a visible line on the wall that is measured to be

five feet high where the water rose to. Several RJ’s employees recall closing the bar at 3a.m. on Saturday and coming back at 5:30a.m. to see the flooding inside the building. Tiffany Gray, a waitress at RJ’s, said she will never forget what she saw in the store that morning. “There were booths and chairs floating in the middle of the floor,” said Gray. “Huge refrigerators were turned over by water. We could hardly get out the back door.” RJ’s owner Russell Johnson said he understands that the Federal Emergency Management Agency SEE BUSINESS, PAGE A15

The Leader is working to coordinate a disaster relief drive for victims of the May Day flood on Monday, May 17. Though many area churches, businesses and individuals have donated non-perishable foods, household goods, cleaning supplies and clothing, many victims are not taking advantage of these donations. The Leader is seeking monetary donations to help with immediate needs of those affected by the flood. “So many donations have been made around the county and we hope to increase that on Monday,” said Echo Day, the event’s organizer. “Money is an immediate need for those affected.” Those willing to donate can do so by pulling through the driveway at giving monetary donations. The fundraiser is planned to from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m., rain or shine. “This will cover the morning rush as well as lunchtime traffic,” Day said. “We plan to stay in the parking lot as long as we have people willing to donate, though.” Funds raised will be donated to the disaster relief fund established at Patriot Bank. From there, the funds will be disbursed to families in need. The Leader office is located at 2001 Hwy. 51 South in Covington.

Salons donate hair to clean Gulf oil spill By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com Usually people get their hair cut to benefit themselves. However, if you head to Hair and Body Works in Atoka, you will also be benefitting a much greater cause. The business, located on 194 Wesley Reed Drive, is donating locks of hair that have been cut to an organization to aid in the relief efforts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill of the Gulf of Mexico that began on April 20 and is still ongoing. They are attempting to have other hair salons collect hair and donate all of it together. Online sources and media outlets cite that the spill followed a blowout that caused an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig, which then sank off the coast of Louisiana. The oil spill covers a surface area of at least 2,500 square miles according to estimates reported on May 3 by CNBC. The oil spill, originating from a deepwater oil well 5,000 feet below sea level, is discharging an estimated 5–25 thousand barrels of crude oil daily. The spill is expected to eclipse the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill as the worst US oil disaster in history, according to several sources. Experts fear that it will result in an environmental disaster as the oil from the well site reaches the Gulf coast, damaging the Gulf of Mexico fishing industry, tourism industry, and habitat of hundreds of bird species. Crews are working to block off bays and estuaries, using anchored

barriers, floating booms, and sandfilled barricades along shorelines. One way to soak up the oil is by using hair. The idea to donate hair occurred after several employees noticed a Facebook page dedicated to the project. Last Wednesday, May 5, the women of the salon began to put the hair in a separate bag. They are working with a non-profit organization, Matter of Trust, who uses the hair for oil spills. According to their website, Matter of Trust is “collaborating with thousands of salons throughout the US and abroad, that donate their hair clippings to soak up oil spills. Last year over 2,600 oil spills occurred in the world. They weren’t all high profile, but most had an impact on the environment. Phil McCrory, a hair stylist from Alabama, first discovered how hair can help. He was shampooing an oily head of hair while watching TV coverage on the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill. He noticed the fur on the Alaskan otters completely soaked with oil and it just occurred to him. “We shampoo because hair collects oil.” He began testing how much petroleum oil he could collect with the hair clipping from the floor of his salon. Phil then invented the hairmat which is made from purchased hair and felted in China. For the last 10 years this organization has partnered with Phil and Ottimat to see if they can create a National Natural Fiber Recycling System so that they could make the mats there the way they make

BrightonFest set for Saturday By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com The first Brighton Festival has been rescheduled for this Saturday, May 15. Held in the BHS parking lot on Highway 51 the event will be from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and is free to the public. It serves as a fundraiser for the BHS and BMS bands and is being organized by the band boosters. Students will be present to serve up food, drinks and activities for the people in attendance. Many people are planning on the Brighton festival to be an annual event in order to support the students of the school and help out in their musical endeavors. A stage will be set up for several musical acts performing including the local bands Chris Rutledge and the Radio Night Band and Memphis Trio. Also playing some tunes will be the BHS and BMS bands. Other forms of entertainment include games where people can win prizes. One of the games is a cow patty competition that is played like “BINGO” with a country style. There is also a petting zoo that is sure to entrance young children at the event, and a “celebrity” dunk take where people will have a chance to dunk such people as Brighton High Principal Katherine Roe. Other community leaders are still invited to volunteer to be in the dunk tank. Vendors and a car show will also be at the festival. School clubs will occupy several booths. The high school organization Students Against Destructive Decisions will be hosting a car wash at the event. “This is a chance for people to get involved and help out with the school,” said band booster and organizer Jennifer Wilbanks. “It is also a chance to be a part of their children’s musical life and see what they are doing in band.” People are still able to participate in the car show and be a vendor and can register for these events up until the morning of the festival. If someone would like to participate in either than can contact Jim Palmer 592-8925.

the booms.” The US has over 300,000 hair salons and each cuts an average of a pound of hair per day. Once the hair is donated, they make “booms” by stuffing hair, fur, waste wool and other like products into donated recycled nylons and mesh. Hair and Body Works owner Wendy Locke invites other hair salons to come and bring their hair to the store and they will mail it to the organization themselves. “We are a small community,” said Locke. “This is a way we can bring the community together and be a part of a greater cause.” In Covington, This Is It salon has also taken suit of collecting hair.

already engulfed in flames. Covington Mayor Gordon said that there are a few people who have signed up to volunteer for the rebuilding but many more are needed. “Anyone who participates in this rebuilding will be a part of the new park, “ said Mayor Gordon. “This takes an effort from the whole community.” The Chamber feels that even

with a lot of damage with the storm and the many people that have been assisting with all of that, it is necessary to go ahead with the building of the park, so that families will have a place to go take their children and hopefully can add a little sunshine to a rather “rainy” day.

Heritage Cafe to hold benefit for affected businesses "They've put their money and their heart into their business and in a matter of hours it was devastated. Where do you go from here?" Non-profit organization Tipton Cares, which helped clothe and feed more than 9,000 residents in 2009, lost all of its donations and is looking for a new building to call home. Little Angels Learning Center, a childcare facility located on the Atoka side of Highway 51, and Redeeming Grace Lutheran Church also sustained severe damage, as did most businesses in the district. City officials have pitched in to help where they can and Munford Mayor Dwayne Cole said the fundraising effort was a great way the public could show support.

By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com MUNFORD - With the goal of helping other businesses owners in their time of need, Heritage Café has planned a fundraising event this weekend. On May 1, businesses, churches and non-profit organizations in the city's Big Creek and Quinton Drive business district were devastated by 4-8 feet of floodwaters. As they pick up the pieces, employees at Heritage Café are raising money to help owners rebuild their businesses. "If we were in this situation, we'd want help," said organizer Karen Richardson. "I think the community really needs to pull together." Seven years ago, the business district was flooded after more than seven inches of rain fell in Munford over a 24-hour period. Many businesses had only recently recovered from that event, only to be devastated by floodwaters a second time on May 1. Sheriff Pancho Chumley and Tipton County Executive Jeff Huffman survey damage to roadways on Sunday, May 2. Deputies put up caution tape to prevent motorists from crossing unsafe bridges.

Disaster response went according to plan, officials say By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com COVINGTON – In an area where the biggest threat is that of an earthquake, on May 1, the Tipton County Emergency Management Agency dealt with a disaster it did not anticipate. Nearly two weeks ago, an unprecedented flood event devastated the entire county, dropping 12-16 inches of rain in just eight hours, stranding motorists and crippling Tipton County’s roadways. “I thought we were supposed to get 3-6 inches of rain and then all of a sudden we’re flooding,” said director Tommy Dunavant. “When they called me, they said Highway 51 was flooded and some residences were flooded in Atoka. The whole county was underwater.” The flooding was enough to be deemed a 1,000-year flood event by the Army Corps of Engineers, meaning more than 8 inches fell in a 24-hour period. The chances of such an event are 1/10 of one percent. It was also the first major disaster Dunavant's seen since he took the director's position in February 2008. “It was quite an event,” said Dunavant. “We thought we’d see an earthquake before we’d see a flood. I had no clue we'd ever see anything like this.” Tipton County rests within the New Madrid seismic zone and for years residents have felt threatened by "the big one," that is a serious earthquake. In 1811 and 1812, the region experienced a series of serious earthquakes at 8.1- and 8.2-magnitude with the epicenter in northeast Arkansas. The highest risk for earthquakes in the United States aside from the West Coast is along the New Madrid fault. Though there has not been a quake as catastrophic in the area since, the 120-mile long fault is still active and predictions when the next "big one" will hit are contradictory.

Nevertheless, first responders and other emergency personnel routinely train to prepare for catastrophic damages caused by natural disasters. Holding up a copy of the county’s emergency operations plan (EOP), Dunavant shared that within its pages were guidelines for many different situations. “Basically, it tells us the steps and command, who to call for search and rescue and equipment,” he said. “There’s already a plan in place.” At 4 a.m. on Saturday, May 1, the plan was put to the test. The emergency operations center (EOC), a central command facility which houses a communications center and other equipment necessary in an emergency, was established in Dunavant’s Mueller Brass Road office. For the next 38 hours, all search and rescue operations and all personnel were dispatched from the EOC. Though trained for earthquakes, emergency personnel successfully adapted plans to deal with the rising floodwaters. “It’s scary how smooth it went,” Dunavant said. “I give a lot of credit to the people here looking over agencies and the men and women who knew their jobs and performed them well under pressure.” Dunavant said the unexpected event was a great test of the county's emergency response. "You sometimes wonder if we're prepared," he said. "I feel like we answered those questions – we are prepared and we found out how well our system works. We're prepared to handle whatever we're faced with." Dunavant said local emergency agencies worked well together, which is one of Tipton County’s best assets. "Our agencies work well together, our mutual aid program is pretty strong." And though things went smoothly, Dunavant said the county will become better prepared for extensive flooding in the future.

Tipton Flashback

In Our Opinion

A4

County comes together through tragedy It was a natural disaster of epic proportions – 16 inches of rain in just eight hours, a flood the Army Corps of Engineers calls a 1,000-year flood event – and it devastated Tipton County. Overnight, enough rain fell to flood businesses and homes, wash away roads and strand motorists. Before the sun ever rose on May 1, the May Day flood had taken its toll. With four or five feet of water covering it, Highway 59 was deemed completely impassable and portions of Highway 51 , the county's main thoroughfare, were closed in the three biggest cities due to flooding. At one point on Saturday, May 1, county officials had closed 35-40 roads and bridges. Tipton County Emergency Management Agency Director Tommy Dunavant said approximately 60 individuals were saved from vehicles overtaken or homes evaded by floodwaters. There are dramatic stories of the woman who was rescued from her flooded car with only a few minutes left to spare and the elderly man who became stranded in a parking lot when he made a desperate trip to Covington's Walgreens to pick up some much-needed medication and the mother who frantically swan down her driveway to get her children to safety. And the devastation that day didn't end with a flood the likes of which this county had never seen. No, Mother Nature had more up her sleeve. By 10:45 p.m., another round of thunderstorms had finally made its way to West Tennessee, bringing with it tornadic activity. Among those reported all over the Mid-South, a tornado touched down in Lucy, a small community south of Millington in Shelby County, and it was headed our way. Like many all over the area, we waited it out in our safe rooms. It’d been a long day and we prayed we’d see daylight without further destruction. Tipton County had enough already. It seems miraculous, but the storm broke up over Tipton County. No funnels touched the ground here, thankfully. It just went on its merry way. It was a very sad, very heartbreaking, very emotional, very raw May Day. Initial estimates of damage were $20.44 million and the day after the storm, Tipton County was declared a disaster area by our county executive. By May 5, we’d been declared a disaster area by the federal government, allowing our flood victims access to FEMA assistance. It is needed here, just as it is in Millington and Nashville. And our emergency personnel really hit this one out of the park. They worked tirelessly through these storms to help us get through this. There are not enough words to thank them for what they continue to do, day in and day out. Because there had been no reports of missing persons, we believed everyone in Tipton County survived and we counted this miracle among our blessings. However, last Friday, a hunter found the body of a man in a field in Mason. He was the only Tipton County casualty and the third death in West Tennessee attributed to the storm. More than 22 people have died as a result of the May Day storms. But through the clouds and storms of tragedy, the bright rays of faith are seeing the survivors through the devastation. The thing about living in a small community is that the true definitions of community and neighbor, which are present every single day, are especially prevalent after tragedy. In all, 22 families are currently displaced. The waters have gone down. The mold is growing. Assistance is coming. But for the past two weeks, people have come together to help their neighbors. To pass out bottled water, to wash and dry laundry, to rip up carpets and sheet rock. To help each other begin again. We don’t have to wait for assistance, we just look to our neighbors because we know they will be there for us through the sun, the rain, the tornadoes and the floods. It was devastating, plain and simple, but living where we do definitely softened the blow. We could publish the facts for a year, announce every road closure and re-opening, recount every rescue and thank every agency and individual involved in keeping Tipton Countians safe and we still wouldn't come close to explaining what really happened that day. Simply put, just as in every disastrous situation, Tipton County came together as one.

Tanning beds bring more than health risks With 100 degree weather just around the corner, many people are getting ready to slip into swimwear and shorts to prepare for the ON THE RECORD heat. A lot of TIFFANY CARR HOLLAND us, mostly women, believe that having a nice summer tan is as essential as having air conditioning. But before you begin to hit the tanning bed and lay out on a beach towel to bake yourself like chicken, remember that tanning has its consequences. I strongly believe that most people already have heard about the negative side of tanning beds and being sun burned. Every time you get burned it increases your chance for skin diseases, such as melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Tanning beds increase this risk so much so that the World Health Organization even recommends for people to not use tanning beds at all due to the health risks. However, I come from a generation of people who continually ignore trends that keep us healthy. So many people 30 and under seem to care less about the possibility of getting cancer one day. As horrible as this sounds, you cannot argue Brian Blackley – Publisher/ General Manager

admit that I am not an extremely stylish individual, but if you are tanning so much that your skin develops an orange tint to it, you have taken things too far. During the summer it is like these people come out of hibernation. I wonder if this is ever considered attractive by anyone? How could it be? People who tan this much look like a carrot and a basketball got together and spawned them. They look like college frat boys in Knoxville who paint their bodies that loud and obnoxious Vol-orange and embarrass their parents at football games every fall. This type of excessive tanning appears worse on people with blonde hair, people who generally have fair skin anyway. And yet the orange look seems to accompany so many bleach blondes, ensuring everyone that both their tan and hair is not natural. Being “tanorexic” is not a good thing for anybody’s physical or mental health. It is a serious condition and is also rather unsightly. If people will not take into account the seriousness of what tanning will do to their physical well-being, they at least should be aware of what it is doing negatively to their aesthetic appeal. After all, this seems to be the most important thing to so many, however wrong it may be. Tiffany Carr Holland may be reached at tholland@covingtonleader.com.

its truth. People pour into tanning salons on a daily basis. And how else does one explain why so many people smoke this day in age when there are so many health reasons not to out there? Smoking and tanning are of the same self-denial sickness tree. Since so many people do not seem to be taking heed of the health message that using a tanning bed every day will eventually be harmful to their health, I have a new warning that might hit home a little bit harder - tanning will eventually hurt the way you look. Sure, after frying yourself for months on end by UV rays, you have a great tan and you feel sorry for the unfortunate pale people walking down the streets. But as surely as your skin turns brown, it will eventually shrivel as well. Tanning ages the skin more quickly. So while you might look great for the summer, a few summers down the road and you will look like a leather handbag and twice your age. Guaranteed. Aging your skin is not the only consequence of constant UV exposure but there is also what I like to call the “Orange Look.” You have seen them. They are usually young women. They might be pretty, but they are orange. I personally try not to judge people, but I can’t help but be slightly prejudiced of orange people. I will also

Let Momma know what she means to you

M

other ’s Day i s one of the greatest days to be celebrated. The best kind of Love is Unconditional Love that you Momma always gave you. When you were born, the first person to hold you, pet you and feed you was your Momma. All that squalling and carrying on you were doing was because you wanted your Momma to feed and take care of you. Even though you were only a few minutes old, you knew who to call on. You never saw a new born calf running around looking for his Daddy. No Sirreee, they wanted their Momma, and as always, she was right there. Ever since I can remember, Momma knew what to do, and handled any and every situation that came up, but I didn’t realize it at the time. Growing up in the South as a country boy does have some hang-ups, but Mommas know what to do. I was about four years old and I had this little blue tricycle that I rode the love of my life around on the back of it practically all summer. Well, Lynn got him a big brand new red high-powered tricycle, shiny and all, and my love jilted me for him. When she left me, I ran home crying to Momma all tore up, just knowing I was fixing (Southern for going to) to die right there on the spot. As always she would hug and kiss me, and say her favorite words to me, “I know, son, but you’ll be are-ite.” During my life I have heard that expression about two million times, but you know she was always right!! Unconditional Love. How do Mommas know how to say all the right things back then and now too?? Momma always made sure we had clean clothes washed every day, and plenty to eat, fixed just right. Do you realize that no one on the earth can fix your meals just like you Momma? I don’t care where you go. Eggs, fried chicken, cornbread, peas, gravy, biscuits, and everything she ever put on the table was “just right." She would turn the plate of chicken around where my favorite pieces would

be right in front of me, so I wouldn’t have to hunt for them. Forget the liver, as I can’t eat it today. She would fix it more ways than Carter had little liver pills, but I could smell liver cooking four miles away. I would threaten not to go home, run off and join the circus, even suggested going up North, but she knew that wasn’t true. When Momma called us for supper, as soon as you hit the back door for three hundred years, she’d say, “don’t forget to wash up." See, I found out later, she didn’t want me to get sick from all those germs. At suppertime, we all ate together and talked about everything as the radio was turned off. We didn’t have a television, cell phones, beepers, CD players, or telephone, so we had to talk to each other. Back then, as soon as the table was cleared, Daddy would go in the living room to read the Press-Scimitar, while Momma would ask me if I had any homework. She knows the teachers always sent us home with all our books. Well, she would sew, while I studied. Momma must have worn out seventy-five needles, and used ninety spools of thread trying to keep me in clothes. But she was always there to help me answer the questions ‘cause I had to make good grades. When it came time to go to church, Momma would always say, “don’t forget to clean up good, wash your ears and comb your hair.” I must have used half of the Missippi (Mississippi) River cleaning out my ears. I had a crew cut about one quarter inch long, but it had to be combed. Why? ’Cause Momma said so, that’s why! No sass (I guess that’s a word) here. Be sure you match your socks and don’t get them inside out which wasn’t a problem since I didn’t have very many anyway. Back then there wasn’t any turning and twisting around as the shirt collars had so much starch that they felt like a butcher knife was on your neck, so you had to “behave and act right.” Another famous term. Momma would be at every social function, school plays, ball games, church socials that I participated in. She would usually sit up front beaming and pointing so that everyone could see, that’s my boy, even if I messed up. I’ll admit that I always looked for her, even though I didn’t want her to know it. There are some hard times when you first go to high school. You can’t drive a car, which means you can’t get a date.

Work zones deserve your undivided attention By GERALD NICELY TDOT Commissioner On Nov. 9, 2009, 19-year-old Jeffrey Thompson and 18-yearold Cheyenne Burke were working along a stretch of I-75 in Anderson County, Tennessee. The boys were tightening some recently installed cable barrier rail when a truck left the roadway, crossed a median and struck them. Jeffrey's dad was working just a few feet away and saw everything. On April 19, 2010, less than six months after the loss of her only son, Debbie Thompson joined the Te n n e s s e e Department of Transportation to share an important message about work zone safety. She is determined to prevent something like this from happening to another family. Every day thousands of men and women work to improve our roadways and make them safer. Thousands of us drive by them, focused on getting to work, to an appointment, to school or to some other destination. Often times, we never stop to think about the people working along the roadway and how

our actions could mean the difference in whether they make it home that day. Over the years, 106 TDOT workers have lost their lives in the line of duty. To put this into perspective, this number is almost triple the 38 Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers killed while on duty. Each year we take a week in April to highlight the importance of work zone safety. This year's national focus for work zone awareness week was, "Work Zones Deserve Your Undivided Attention," an effort to call attention to the rise in distracted driving related crashes. Nearly 6,000 people died in crashes involving a distracted driver in 2008 and 500,000 Americans were injured according to the National Highway Tr a ff i c Safety Administration. There are three main types of distracted driving: Visual, Manual and Cognitive. Essentially, anything that takes your eyes, hands or mind away from the task of driving. Texting is the most alarming distraction because it involves all three. The Tennessee General Assembly recog-

nized the dangers of texting while driving and enacted a law against it in 2009. Recognizing the growing severity of the distracted driver problem, Oprah Winfrey is taking up the cause to stop it. On Friday, April 30, 2010, Oprah joined forces with some of the country's top transportation safety organizations to declare Friday, April 30 the first national "No Phone Zone Day" and launched a new national campaign on the issue. Eliminating distractions is particularly important in work zones where slower traffic, sudden lane shifts and other factors require a driver's undivided attention. When you see orange signs indicating a work zone is ahead, pay attention, slow down, and minimize distractions inside your vehicle. We should all remember the words of Debbie Thompson when she said highway workers are an integral part of our lives. They make travel safer for you and your family. A small delay of your time or ignoring a phone call, or a text is a small price to pay for protecting someone else's life as well as your own.

No freshman or sophomore girl in her right mind would be seen with a low life freshman, as they dated the juniors and seniors that had cars. You are too old to ride a bicycle, so this presented a problem, and you are left out in the cold. Rabbit, Tommy, Crook and Phil all had the same problem. I never thought I’d get a drivers license, but Momma would just say, “I know son, but you’ll be are-ite.” I look back at all the times that I banged up my knees, cut my arms, or just got hurt, and would run home to Momma. She would hold me and say, “I know son, but you’ll be are-ite.” Like the time I had some teeth pulled and Momma was rocking me while I TRIED to recover. Every so often, I would wake up and see the blood on the front of her blouse, and she never said a word, just kept rocking and taking care of me. Unconditional Love. Mommas taught us how to say our prayers every night, where you get on your knees beside the bed and say, “Now I lay me down to sleep..." you know the prayer. There have even been songs written concerning Mommas. To name a few, "Momma Tried," "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle Rules The World," "Momma, Pray for Me," and "Rock A Bye Baby." True story. Mrs. Scott, probably in her 70s, when I was just a little kid, but I remember it well. She was about five feet tall and wore thick glasses. I found out later that she couldn’t read or write and dipped snuff. Charles, her youngest boy, always stayed in trouble from day one. He was practically raised in the county jail, where you were sent for “small” stuff or the Shelby County Penal Farm for more serious offenses. I think that’s where he got all his mail at one place or the other. Well, he finally robbed a store and was sent to the “big house," Brushy Mountain back then. Now Mrs. Scott came up to Mr. Ben’s store there in Rosemark in her long coat, (it was about 95 degrees) with her scarf on her head. Her little purse was dangling down as she was going around asking each of the local philosophers if they would help her get her little boy out of jail. She had no money and really didn’t know what to do, but she hoped someone would help her. She went around and talked to about seven or eight men, and they really didn’t pay much attention to her. As she started to leave one of the men

thought she was already gone and said to Mr. Bright, “who wants to help that dawg (dog)?”Well, Mrs. Scott heard him say that and came back right in front of him, got up in his face as best she could, looked him square in the eye and said this just as plain as day, “He might be a dawg, but he’s my dawg.” Unconditional Love, no matter what the circumstance. Sad story, but true. Something else to chomp (chew) on. The doctor told you when he gave you a shot that it won’t hurt. He lied. The coach told you (135 pounds) to tackle the fullback (220 pounds) it won’t hurt. He lied, ‘cause I had a bloody nose and a headache for a week. When you went to the bank to borrow money and the banker said, “Aw this small payment won’t hurt you, no problem.” He lied. Also, the used car salesman sold you that lemon, that lasted three months before it died on the spot, told you it’s just like a brand new one. He lied. But the one person that never lied to you as your Momma. Unconditional Love. You told your Momma secrets that you would not dare tell anyone else, you have NOT forgotten that, have you? I tell you what you do right now, if you are in a position to do so. Lay down this paper, walk over there and hug your Momma, kiss her, tell her you love her, and thank her for all she’s done for you. I’ll guarantee that you will feel a whole lot better. If she lives away, call her. The first thing she’ll say is, “I’ve been worried about you.” Mommas always worry. Tell her that you love her, miss her and you’ll see her real soon. She’ll appreciate it a lot more than you’ll ever know. If your Momma has gone on to her great reward, pick you up some flowers, get on your knees and place them on her grave. Say a little prayer, thanking her for all she did for bringing you up. Let her know that you will try to follow in her footsteps and raise your young’uns like she raised you. Even though the circle is broken, you will be with her one day. She’ll hear you and if you feel some rain, remember, there are holes in the floor of heaven. Don’t worry about getting your britches or your knees dirty, cause yo’ Momma never did. You will be a lot better person, just take the time to thank God for a God-fearing Momma. One More Song: "Precious Memories," how they linger! AMEN!!!

Knowing God’s will for your life By REV. SCOTT SEALY First Presbyterian Church, Covington

O

ne of the most common questions I am asked as a minister is “How do I know God’s will for my life?” Sometimes it is asked in those very words, but often it is asked about a specific decision someone is facing: Should I sell my house? Is this who I should marry? Where is God leading me to work? Most Christians come to a time when they have to decide, not between a good and bad, but between goods. They want to be obedient and faithful and struggle with the question of what direction God wants them to take. The Holy Scriptures are our ultimate guide in what we believe and how we live out our faith. The Bible is God’s revelation of not only who He is, but how He wants us to live. Therefore, where the Bible gives us explicit direction, God’s will is clear. God desires that believers gather regularly for worship (Heb. 10:25), that we should not lie (Ex. 20:16), that we forgive others (Matt. 6:14), and that we care for those in need (James 1:27). Knowing God’s will where the Scriptures are clear is not difficult even if obeying it is. But the Bible does not give us detailed instructions for choosing a career, a spouse, or what congregation we should join. (Although I have heard some interpret Ezekiel 20:29 as a sign to study at Tuscaloosa.) How do we make decisions where God’s Word has no specific

direction? When we’re faced with questions like this it is good for us to make a distinction between questions of obedience and questions of wisdom. Following the commandments of scripture is an issue of obedience — and to disobey is sin. God’s will is that “you shall not steal”, to take what belongs to another is a sin. The other questions we face are often a matter of deciding what is the wisest course of action. In these cases we make wise or foolish choices — but we don’t sin if there is no Biblical command to obey or disobey. In other words, God has given us the freedom and responsibility to live and make choices within the bounds of what scripture commands. Sometimes people have the impression that God has a narrative laid out for our lives and as we come to forks in the road we are supposed to scrutinize God’s plan from signs or an “inner voice” and hope we follow the correct path. God does have a plan for us, but we cannot thwart God’s purposes because He is absolutely sovereign. God knows “the days that were formed for [us], when as yet there was none of them.” (Psalm 139) But when we face difficult decisions where we have no command from Scripture we are responsible to make the wisest decision we can. We are not called to uncover some hidden map for our lives. Nor are we to make such decisions in fear that we sin if we choose wrong. That said, God has given us gifts and ways of coming to good decisions. Our natural

inclinations, desires, and talents often serve as a good guide. Someone who can’t stand math is not going to be called to accounting; someone who loves explaining things to others might need to pursue a teaching vocation. Validation from others is another gift that can guide us in making appropriate decisions. If you’re head over heels in love with someone none of your friends trust, it would be wise to consider their opinion before making them your spouse. We are invited to pray for wisdom and discernment. “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” (James 1:5) We should discuss things with friends whose opinions we value; Proverbs 22:17 tells us “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” Our choices should be informed by an understanding of appropriate timing as the writer of Ecclesiastes reminds us. While going back to school might be a good decisions, other things in your life might mean that it has to be postponed for a time. Above all we are guided by the Bible. Even though there aren’t specific directives for many of the decisions we make, it is a sure guide for wisdom. The Rev. Dr. Scott Sealy is the senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church.

CMS teachers say farewell

A career in education is a lifetime of service to future generations. Teachers influence children in more ways than can be counted, but we know that great leaders, performers, and achievers often credit their teachers for inspiring them to reach lofty goals. We do touch the future in every child we inspire. The three CMS retiring teach-

ers are perfect examples of how teachers touch and improve the lives of the students and staff with whom they work. How do you adequately describe the life time that has been dedicated to educating children from such great and beloved teachers as Dr. Alan Kinningham, Mrs. Diane Hart, and Ms. Ernestine Y. Jones? There’s nearly 100 years of teaching experience among them and they are examples of the finest educators we have. Thousands of young lives

have been influenced by these three fine teachers and they have molded many new teachers, as well. Dr. Kinningham, Mrs. Hart, and Ms. Jones, you have well earned your retirements, but we will miss you sorely. Congratulations on your long and distinguished years educating young minds and thank you for your years of being a teacher and serving the children of our schools. Best wishes as you retire!

Charger Beat By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader Wishes do come true My wish is that all of Covington could have been in Castellaw Gymnasium last Wednesday afternoon so that the citizens of this community could have witnessed the granting of a wish to a precious five year old girl by the student body of Covington High School. You’ll read about it in depth in a special piece by Tiffany Holland in Lifestyles but allow me to say here that in 18 years of covering CHS in this column, I have never been more proud of our kids and this school. If joy can be made visible, it was on little Lisa’s face, that of her family and the hundreds of faces of your children who saw tangible proof of having done something wonderful for someone else. It was a marvelous, per-

First State joins loan partnership COVINGTON — The Tennessee Rural Opportunity Fund, a first of its kind $10 million economic development fund providing loans to small businesses in rural Tennessee, has been awarded the 2010 National Community Reinvestment Award from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council. The award recognizes the work of financial institutions that are advancing innovative solutions to the challenges facing lower-income and distressed communities. The Fund is a publicprivate partnership be-

tween the State of Tennessee, 23 member banks of the Tennessee Bankers Association, and Southeast Community Capital Corporation (SCC) that utilizes a unique collaborative access to capital strategy to lend to small businesses in Tennessee’s rural communities. It is a component of the Rural Opportunity Initiative, a three-pronged strategy unveiled by Governor Phil Bredesen in fall of 2007 to bolster economic growth in rural areas. Launched in 2007 and operated by Southeast Community Capital, the Rural Opportunity Fund is expected to generate

$25 million in loans and finance over 350 small, minority- and womenowned businesses that will create more than 600 new jobs over 10 years. To date, the Fund has originated over $9 million in loans to 44 businesses creating nearly 200 new jobs and retaining approximately 400 existing positions. Almost 70 percent of the loans have been made to women and/or Minority-owned businesses. “We are excited about this partnership and the national recognition it has received," said John Clark, president and CEO of First State. “When

Tennessee Rural Opportunity Fund was created, First State was one of the first financial institutions to join that effort. "We are proud of what our investment has resulted in thus far, especially the way it has helped so many women and minority-owned small businesses in rural communities across the state. It is First State’s corporate culture to give back to the communities we serve and this is one way we are doing that.” The award was presented on March 16, 2010 in New Orleans, LA at the 25th National Interagency Community Re-

investment Conference sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of Thrift Supervision. First State Bank has 27 full-service banking locations in 22 communities throughout Tennessee. It is owned by Community First Bancshares Inc., a holding company headquartered in Union City, which also operates a mortgage company, an insurance company, a specialized ag services division, an employee benefits division, investment services, a con-

sumer finance company, and an indirect auto financing division at various locations across the state. The banking company currently has assets totaling over $1.4 billion. The banking company has offices in the communities of Davidson, Dyer, Gibson, Haywood, Henderson, Knox, Madison, Obion, Robertson, Shelby, Sumner, Tipton, and Weakley Counties in Tennessee. Its metropolitan markets include Collierville, Gallatin, Goodlettsville, Hendersonville, Jackson, Knoxville, and Nashville.

Naifeh seeks another term; others vie for GOP nod On May 11, State Representative (D-Covington) Jimmy Naifeh announced that he is running for re-election for House District 81, which encompasses most of Tipton and all of Haywood county. He joins the race with Republican contenders Rory Bricco and Jim Hardin. Hardin also declared his candidacy this week on Saturday, May 8 before a crowd in front of the

Covington Courthouse. Naifeh, who is unopposed in the democratic primary race, stated in his press release, “It is an honor and a privilege to serve as your state representative, and one that I have taken seriously. I have been and continue to be committed to the people of Tipton County and Haywood County, and I will continue to honor my responsibility and work hard to bring more jobs to our community, improve our local and regional schools and provide tax relief

to those who need it most.” Nafieh is a life-long resident of the district and was elected to the Speaker of the House in 1991. He currently serves Speaker Emeritus of the House of Representatives and is currently the longest serving House Speaker in Tennessee history. “I have worked with republicans and democrats to pass balanced budgets, create jobs, improve school and make our streets safer,” said Naifeh. “Though we

My name is Rover and my foster mom found me with my tail very badly skinned. Someone was mean and tied a wire around the base of my tail. I had to have my whole tail amputated but I still can wag my butt - which I do a lot! I am a happy boy. I am a yellow lab mix. I will play fetch all day long and catch toys in mid-air and seem to have some kind of agility training. I love to hear the crunch of plastic jugs. I am energetic and love to play, and I sit and Rover shake on command. I really love people, a lot. I like the girl dogs the best. I weigh about 75 lbs, have been neutered, heartworm treated and on preventative. . I need a big yard or lots of trips to the park for exercise. I don’t try to escape the fence, I just love to dig and lay in my self-made puddles. But I somehow seem to stay reasonably clean. Amazes my foster mom. I go into my kennel with a treat, and am mostly house trained. I will walk on a leash, but need more practice. Maybe there is someone (you maybe?) who needs a big fur guy for a friend and is willing to play fetch for hours, learn agility or even teach me to hunt. I would love to meet you.

Many crops will have to be replanted, fences rebuilt, equipment repaired and financial difficulties overcome. We appreciate Monsanto helping the communities in these affected areas and their providing seeds to our farmers to reseed their crops will be a major help.” To be prepared to respond when farm communities are hit, the Tennessee Farm Bureau established the Tennessee Farm Disaster Response Fund in 2008. When disaster strikes, grants from this fund are directed to farm and rural communities to help rebuild the agricultural infrastructure and are intended to help those who have incurred substantial damage. Those living in Tennessee counties that earn presidentially declared disaster status will be eligible for help from the fund, and anyone may make donations to the foundation.

West Tennessee suffered major damage as a result of the recent storms and flooding,” said Dave Rhylander, Deltapine marketing director. “Residents are facing dramatic challenges in rebuilding their communities, and Monsanto wanted to find a way to assist in the recovery. Partnering with the Tennessee Farm Bureau and The Tennessee Farm Disaster Response Fund allows us to get funds quickly and make an impact in the rural communities hit hardest. "We’ll also be working directly with customers on programs to assist with replanting crops as farmers face those decisions when the waters recede. "To help our farmers with their reseeding, we will be implementing programs to provide replacement seed at no cost to help with their financial burden of meeting their needs to recover from these floods.” Rhylander received a round of applause from a group of area farmers who had gathered for the check presentation when he announced Monsanto’s plans to help with providing seed for their reseeding needs. More details about the reseeding program will be made available from Monsanto in the very near future. Tennessee Farm Bureau President Lacy Upchurch thanked Monsanto offi-

NEWBERN – During most spring growing seasons, the month of May is usually the time when Tennessee farmers are watching their corn crops grow and hoping for a successful fall harvest. But, this year, due to a weekend of historical floods spreading across more than 50 counties in the western and midstate areas of the Volunteer State, Tennessee farmers are cleaning up tens of thousands of acres that have been affected. Crops of corn and early soybeans were buried under water and silt. The financial impact to farmers having to delay crops could be devastating and the final cost of replanting will come out of their bottom line. Representatives from the Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation and the Monsanto Company came together on the farm of row crop farmer Malcolm Burchfiel near Newbern yesterday to announce Monsanto’s donation of $50,000 to The Tennessee Farm Disaster Response Fund dedicated to helping rural communities recover from the recent floods. Other agricultural organizations and corporations are being encouraged to match Monsanto’s generosity to help counties across the affected areas and several are already making plans to get involved. “Communities across

By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com The Brighton and Munford baseball teams saw their seasons come to an end in the District 13-AAA Tournament. Brighton (15-14) eliminated the Cougars Friday night in Brighton with a 5-3 win. Cardinal senior Garrett Perry (6-2) went six-plus innings to earn the win. Will Embry finished up in the seventh to earn the save. Brighton scored four times in the first inning and one in the second to build an early lead they would not lose. “We just never could get anything going,” said Munford coach Steve Ledford. Munford, the fifth seed in the tournament, lost 9-6 last Thursday to Hardin County in the first round. Stephen Stewart had three hits in each game to lead the Munford (1415) offense. “I knew we were going to be young this year,” said Ledford, whose team lost a ton of seniors last season. “These guys had to grow up fast this year. When we got to the district tournament, I think they were a little overwhelmed. But they went past my expectations. They played hard all year.” Brighton, the three seed, lost to Jackson North Side 18-8 last Thursday in the tournament opener. After defeating Brighton on Saturday, the season ended with a 2-0 loss to Hardin County on Saturday. Embry pitched well enough to earn the win, allowing just three hits over six innings. Hardin County scored twice in the second inning and held on for the win.

Softball teams still in the hunt By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com As of Wednesday, the Munford and Brighton softball teams were still alive in the District 13AA Tournament after going 1-1. The two teams were scheduled to play each other Wednesday in Savannah. The winner was to play Hardin County that night for the district title. The season is over for the loser. Brighton (25-9), the regular season champs and top seed in the tournament, was upset by fourth-seeded Hardin County, 2-1, on Fri-

day in Savannah. Leanna Coulston struck out 19 batters in nine innings, but took the loss. Caroline Jacobs led off the bottom of the ninth with a double, but was stranded at third. On Tuesday Brighton rebounded with a 1-0 win over Dyer County. Coulston struck out 10 batters and allowed just two hits to earn the win. Brighton scored its lone run in the fourth inning on back-to-back doubles from Britt Sanford and Kelsey Tramel. Second-seeded Munford (20-12) defeated Dyer County 4-2 on Friday in the first round of

the tournament. Paige Barnes went the distance to earn the win and added an RBI single. Megan Dennison singled and doubled for Munford and Brandi Hale added a single. On Tuesday the Lady Cougars fell to Hardin County, 2-1. The scored was tied 1-1 after one inning before Hardin County scored in the fifth to take the lead for good. Alex Stanford had an RBI-double to account for Munford’s only run. Barnes pitched five innings to take the loss. Stanford pitched the final two.

May 7 CHS 5 Milan 4 It took 10 innings to decide this one. Sarah Cousar went the distance for her 17th win. She allowed 11 hits, struck out 5 and remarkably did not walk a batter. Autumn Glenn was 2 for 2 including the game winner in the bottom of the 10th driving in Jamie Hollingsworth who had doubled. CJ Browder was 2 for 3 at the plate. “We did not hit the ball well at all,” said head coach Martha Lawler. “We were pulling our heads out as we swung and making bad pitch choices,” Lawler said. “Milan’s pitcher did a great job but we made her look better swinging at the high stuff. “We had 11 strikeouts which has not happened to us since our only loss against Trinity Christian.” MHS 003 000 100 0 4 CHS 400 000 000 1 5 May 8 CHS 3 Westview 2 Although it was not one of her better outings, Autumn Glenn rung up her 16th win of the season against a lone defeat. She had 5 uncharacteristic walks including the first two batters in the game but settled down after that allowing only two hits while striking out 9.

Moments later Riley fed Barry Johnson in the penalty box. Johnson one touched it into the net while colliding with Eanes. Both players were seriously injured. The game was called and ambulances transported both players to the hospital. According to Vandergrift and Munford coach Kyle Selby, both players will be fine. Eanes sustained a head injury and appeared to be uncon-

scious at one point. Johnson injured his knee on the play. Both players left on stretchers with neck braces. It was a somber end to a competitive game. Selby was upset about the injuries, but tried to put the season, which was the first for Munford High School, into perspective. “We have nothing to be embarrassed about,” said Selby, whose team finished 4-11-1 and took sec-

Prestinizi/Norman team 6-2, 6-3 for the district doubles crown. Rhett Watson defeated Anna Moore of Trenton Peabody in singles, semifinal action, 6-0, 6-4.

She took on Chloe Nance from Martin Westview in the finals but fell in three sets, 6-3, 5-7, 3-6. As runner-up, she will advance to the regionals.

cheted into left field; 3 bunt singles; Cooley’s lone walk of the game and a successful sacrifice. Unfazed, CHS scored 2 in the bottom of the frame on a 2 RBI single from Cameron Dickey. More was possible as CHS left the bases loaded twice and twice stranded runners at 3rd base. Cooley, who struck out 3 and walked 1, blanked the Bulldogs from the 3rd through the 6th. He left a runner stranded at 3rd in the 6th inducing a groundout to Tyler Davis and he gave up a run on 2 Milan singles in the 7th to make it a 1 run game but left the tying run at 1st when he got the Bulldogs big hitter, Christian Coleman to line out to Jarvis Harwell

The game was won in the 4th inning. Chad Lewis doubled off the right field wall leading off the inning and scored on a single by Carlos Williams tying the game at 3. Jarvis Harwell walked and Tyler Davis followed with the game winner, slicing a double just inside the right field line allowing the fleet Williams and Harwell to motor home giving CHS a 5-3 lead that they did not relinquish.

CHS soccer squad drops tourney W Bankruptcy? Chapter 7 Chapter 13

Law Firm

By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader The CHS soccer team played in the JCS Best of the West tourney for the first time during the deluge last weekend and did not fare well losing all three of its matches. Coach Robert Luttrell said that he felt it was time to get into some of the more competitive tournaments and even though we would take some lumps the only way

to get better is to play the best teams. CHS lost to JCS 6-0 on Wednesday. Coach Luttrell said that they were the best team he had seen all season. He felt that his keeper played great. He was shot on all night but kept battling. The Chargers led the #2 team in the district, Crockett Co., at the half, 1-0, but could not hold them. The Cavaliers tied the game 20 minutes into the 2nd half on a missed defensive assign-

ment and got the winner with less than 10 minutes remaining. CHS had more shots on goal but it was not enough. Injuries have forced Coach Luttrell to use inexperienced players out of position and that has hurt. Jackson Northside handed the Chargers a 5-0 defeat in the final match of the event. It was 5-0 at the half and ended that way. The Chargers were flat in the 1st half but corrected some things in the 2nd canto

and played better. CHS opened District 13 AA tournament play with a 4-2 win over the Obion Co. Central Rebels at Covington Field on May 10. Mardrecus Dyson, Phillip VanCleve, Josh Watts and Devin Anderson each scored goals for the Chargers. Congratulations are due to Nathan Rogers and Bobby VanCleve who were selected to the AllDistrict/All-Region soccer teams.

Boxing Club competes

The Boxing Club of Covington competed in a show for the Relay for Life in Ripley last Saturday. They won five out of seven matches and the two losses were close. The winning fighters were Demetrius Blevins, Desmond Wakefield, C.J. Robinson and the eight year old twins, Darius and Demarcus Nixon. All the new competitors came to play and showed a great deal of improvement in the short time they have

been boxing, according to their coaches. Starting later in the season, most of the new boxers from other teams have had a few fights and they were having to play catch-up. All the younger and more inexperienced kids are close to being finished for the season but six of the experienced boxers are competing in the National Title tournament in Ripley on June 2, 3 and 4. These boxers include Anthony Campbell, Thomas Hall, Steve Cross, Terrance Carrum, C.J. Robinson and Jamal Holland.

The members of Redeeming Grace Lutheran Church of Munford held services outside last Sunday, May 9 after the May Day flood ruined the church building on Quinton Drive. The Rev. Al Baysen officiated and members even celebrated Holy Communion in front of huge dumpsters filled with debris due to the devastating loss of most everything inside after a six foot wall of water washed through during the May Day Flood on the previous Saturday. Lost was the organ, piano, Bibles, hymnals, all electronic equipment and furniture. Miraculously the altar, pulpit and lecturn, one set of white altar candles and the valued altar Bible were untouched by water due to the raised wooden platform that presumably floated above everything else. It still had floated across the room from where it was previously. Services for the next few Sundays will be held next door at 85 Quinton Drive, now bearing the Head 2 Toe Sports store. Church begins at 9:30 a.m. with Sunday school and Bible class at 10:45 a.m. Please come and join us as we give thanks to God for carrying us through such a tragedy and at the same time opening so many doors.

businesses in their repairs. In Covington, Highway 51 North has been closed off due to flooding and while the flood waters were not as high as in parts of Munford, many businesses were still damaged. The Pizza Hut and Walgreens both appeared having water enter the stores. According to Autozone manager Glen Sinquefield, workers had to remove much of the wiring and dry wall from inside the store. The business was closed from Saturday to Monday, with workers fixing repairs tirelessly in between. Many of the businesses located on Highway 51 have debris and garbage resting outside their venues, where anyone can visibly see the damage. FEMA, the federal organization giving aid to many flood victims has not been in contact with Clayton Allen about his businesses. According to their website, many businesses will be referred to the Small Business Association (SBA). â&#x20AC;&#x153;The SBA is the primary source of

Open Marketplace looks to smaller businesses By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com

A new business in Millington has caught the eye of many small businesses in Tipton County. The Open Marketplace, which basically serves as a community of small businesses, will have its grand opening all weekend with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday at noon. Managing Partner Daniel Clevenger describes Open Marketplace as an “indoor mall with small businesses.” Located in the old Wal-Mart building in Millington at 8235 Highway 51 N, the market offers spaces for rent inside of the old store. In comparison with the prices of renting a building in the area, these spaces are extremely low cost with each being $120 per month for 80 square feet (8’x 10’) of retail space. The entire start-up costs less than $200 on average. Vendors can rent as many spaces as they need and there is no long-term commitment. The spaces are rented on a month-to-month basis. There are no overhead costs and no utilities to pay for, which is why Open Marketplace is ideal for small businesses. “The best part is that the vendor doesn’t have to be in their space all day, everyday,” said Clevenger. “The owners of the space can stay at home and we conduct the sales transactions. At the end of the month we will send them a check of their sales proceeds.” Open Marketplace provides its renters with wireless internet, copy and print services, sales promotion signs and business registration and tax preparation documents. Membership also includes a business start-up kit and daily sales reports by email. The whole establishment is designed for people in small businesses because of its low start-up costs and accessibility.

CHS makes wishes come true By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com Many adults in the county have uttered the phrase “these kids today...” and followed up with something negative about the state of our youth. But the city of Covington does not have anything but pride over their recent high school students at Covington High School who participated in the national Make-a-Wish Foundation’s Kids for Wish Kids programs. On May 5, a bright-eyed, five-year old Felicia “Lisa” Lee walked into Covington High school with an excitement her mother had not seen in a long time. She was greeted by students dressed in Disney character costumes, balloons of every color and a tiara, since she was declared a princess for the day. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-South grants wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions between the ages of 2 -18 years of age. It was young Lisa’s wish to go to Disney World in Orlando, FL. On that Wednesday afternoon, in the high school gymnasium, the high school granted her wish. This is the first time CHS has participated Make-aWish, according to school officials. This idea for M a k e - a - Wi s h all came about during a school field trip for the student council where they attended a workshop and saw an example of how many schools participate in the program. The student council advisor, Becky Todd, remembered how excited several of the students were at the idea of doing this. “They told me that was the one thing they wanted to do and were so motivated for it,” said Todd. “I was so amazed with their enthusiasm. They really wanted to do something to help someone.” The fundraising for Make-a-Wish began in September with several of the school’s clubs and organizations taking part in raising money. Together, the students body and faculty raised $5,289.43. Covington High is one of three high schools in Tipton County. It is also the school whose high school students, on average, live in the highest amount of poverty in the county. According to the Tennessee Department of Education’s website, 48% of children at the school fall in the poverty rate. Even with many of them battling these economic hardships, everyone

is said to have donated something. Many teachers are eager to recall how uncorrupted by poverty many of the students were, with many of them bringing in just nickels and dimes, all they would have, just because they wanted to help out the cause. Principal Peggy Barber admits to be being extremely moved by the whole event. “It wasn’t just helping out the young girl. That was moving enough,” said Barber. “But seeing the students coming in with anything they had, and how they generally wanted to help someone else out. Well, that was a great thing to witness. I am so proud of my students here and to be their principal.” The money went a fund that will pay for Lisa and her family to take a seven-day, all expense paid trip to Disney World, where they also receive special tickets so they will be the first ones in line to every ride. A program was put on by CHS to grant her wish in a Disney theme held in the school gym. Teachers Carole Mathis and Tabb McDivitt and the student council were the organizers for the presentation. Upon hearing that Lisa’s favorite show was Hannah Montana, the student’s performed several Miley Cyrus songs and had a Montana look-alike contest of which Lisa was the judge. The chorus also sang several Disney songs and

many students on stage were dressed as famous characters from the legendary tales of “Beauty and the Beast,” “Cinderella,” “Pinocchio” and others. The student council president, Bailey Morgan, is a senior at CHS and wore a gold gown and went to the program as Belle, the heroine of “Beauty and the Beast.” She claims it was an unforgettable experience. “I’ve never heard the students be so quiet in the gym before,” said Morgan. “I know I was someone who put a smile on her face, when I came up to her dressed as Belle. It was just an amazing feeling to see how much it excited her. I think everyone felt the same because I literally don’t know a single student that didn’t help out with this by doing something. I will always take this with me.” After Lisa was told about her trip and danced away with the characters, her mother came in front of the student body to thank them for raising the money and how much their efforts had moved her. There were many misty eyes and it was so quiet you could hear the drop of a pin in the gym full of teenagers. Many students and teachers were proud of being the first class to take on a Make-a-Wish project and many also hoped they would not be the last. This is one trend that many adults would be proud for students to continue.

Jamestown DarSay Burton 476-1414 I hope that every mother enjoyed a very special day on Sunday, Mother's Day. As for me, it began with a lovely call from my sisters, Annette Burton and Minister Pearl Andrews and my nephew Daryl Powell, Marie's youngest son, called me from Atlanta. My oldest brother Carl called me from Riverdale, Ga., and so did my twin sons Sherman and Therman Boddie, who are now living Harvest, Ala. Then it was to church, Cummings Street Baptist on Raines Road, where Pastor Gary L. Faulkner, Sr. touched my heart with a beautiful Mother's Day message from Thessalonians 2:6-9 where the topic of thought was "Several Ways and Reasons to Thank Your Mother." My lovely mother, the late Josephine Sherrill Burton, who passed Feb. 15, 2007 was a gem of a mother as well as a lady. "Train up a child in the way they should go and they will not depart from it." This was her way of life, and a wonderful life it was for her and for her 10 children! Today I still try to have that same reasoning and love toward

Burlison By Eddie Kellum 476-2683 Hello from Burlison, I guess almost everyone has heard of the Bermuda Triangle, but how about the Nevada Triangle? The first time that I heard of it was a week or so ago. There was a National Geographic special about the disappearance of Steve Fossett. Mr. Fossett was a maverick aviator and billionaire who was the first person to fly solo nonstop around the world in a balloon. In September 2007, while piloting an airplane, Fossett went missing somewhere over the Sierra Nevada mountain range, sparking the biggest peacetime search and rescue operation in the history of the United States. Over the ensuing days and weeks, reports would surface of dozens of other missing airplanes in a huge triangular area of California and Nevada. The report stated that there have been so many aircraft vanish there that it has been nicknamed the Nevada Triangle, echoing the famous Bermuda Triangle. No one knows exactly how many flights have disappeared over the

By Kathy Keiter 476-7014 Hello everyone! All I can say is WOW! God is so good! He sure did give us a beautiful day Saturday for our Springfest! We made our goal that I asked you to pray about last week, plus $600 more! Praise the Lord! We are also thankful that we were able to raise enough money to have Larry Whaley install our new A/C unit. That came from our residents and families of our residents! What a blessing you all are to me! Thank you all so much for giving to this project, because as you know, it can get very hot in that fellowship hall in the summer, especially with no A/C. We’re all going to be glad we did when “Christmas in July” rolls around. I have just got to say thank you to some of the people who were such

my daughter and four sons. If they don't know anything else or anyone else, they know Jesus. We're almost there, Sherrill family. This Memorial Day weekend we will unite at the home house in Jamestown, which is now the home of my uncles, Rev. Pink N. Sherrill, Jr. and Cornell Sherrill. You need to contact "Momma Lay" also known as La Rue Albritton, Minister Pearl Andrews and Glodene Davis of Tampa, Fla., or King Asal for details. I hope to see all of the family there. Our prayers are with Willie Mae Burton, Bessie Cobbs, Jennie Stewart, Mary Burton, Willie Parthnia Hodge, Posey Reed, Joseph Heaston Sr., Jeffrey Mosley Sr., Vivian Dickenson, Donita Alston Cottez Lee, Demetrice Baker, Connie and Christine Brown, David and Charlene Sneed, Theary Alston, Vernand "Big Boy" Burton, Eugene Bates, Ada Fletcher, John Bunton, Patia Ballay, Pauline Yarbrough, Mildred Sherrill and family, Rudolph Boykin and family, Ela Culbreath and family, Joe Malone and family, Rev. Darryl Rozzell, John and Cleo Thompson, Florene Trent, Percy White and family, Robert Smith and family, Bro. Warren C. Lewis and family, John Bommer and family,

Rufus Garner, Nadine Kellum, Jessie Lawson, Jessie and Juanita Heaston, J.C. Heaston, Rhonda Heaston McLin, Tammy Heaston, Johnnie Thompson, Franklin Jones Sr., Ruth Griffin, Alvin Cleaved and Fletcher Dickson, Sr. and Ethel Tipton and family. Happy birthday to Dennis Alson on the 16th and to Irma Harber on the 19th and for you if yours is at this time! Belated anniversary wished to Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Baker, whose big day was the 6th. Now I don't know how many this makes, but I believe that he married Linda right out of high school. Congratulations guys and many more! J a m e s t o w n Community Health Organization is still collecting dues toward upkeep of Dickens Cemetary as well as for our college scholarship funds. Contact people are Jessie Cooke, Joann Bell, Pam Cobbs, Willie Mae Burton and Minister Pearl Andrews. Janet Mosley's still filling in as teacher on Monday evenings at 5 p.m., having missionary meeting at the center in Jamestown. Mary Burton is still telling everyone there is plenty of room, so y'all come! Teacher Willie Mae Burton is still recovering and our prayers are with her.

past 60 years. Crash sites are seldom if ever found in the remote wasteland of desert and mountains, which stretch across more than 2,500 square miles. It is estimated to be more than 2,000 at present. Some say it’s because of being so close to “AREA 51” America’s most guarded tract of land; however the documentary explained about a phenomenon called Mountain Wave. This is what they have found to have happened in most cases. The fast moving Pacific winds and steep mountain sides create a roller coaster effect that can send airplanes soaring up and then they come crashing down. I wonder if we have a triangle around here. I’m almost certain we do. I would call it the Burlison Triangle or maybe the Kellum household triangle. We’re always having things come up missing. I used to keep my shop in such order that I could put my hands on whatever tool I needed. Well not any more and I thought that it was because I was getting older. Also some things disappear never to be seen again, but I figured that was due to the black hole in my son Adam’s room. That’s a story for another day and anoth-

er time. Maybe after he goes away to college. He probably won’t be reading The Leader then. There will be a spaghetti dinner at the Burlison community center Sunday afternoon May 16th. This is a fund raiser for Terasa Kellum Connell and family. Please try to come for some good food and a fun time. All donations and proceeds will go to the Connell family. At the time of this writing, Terasa is back at home and her husband Randy is still in the hospital. There’s also going to be a benefit singing at the Ruffin on May 21 for this family. For more information on this event contact Jeff Yarbough at 229-3505. I wish I were able to report information from the Burlison City Council this week, but I’ll be attending an FFA dinner. I hope there is a good turnout at the meeting so the citizens of Burlison will be represented. If you have any information that you would like to see in future articles please call 476-2683 or email me at kellumeddie@yahoo.com. Until next time, have a great week and God bless. Eddie Kellum

a help with Saturday’s funfest. Jerry Covington and Terry Gray pulled my bottom “out of the fat” (as they used to say, although you don’t hear that much anymore). Thanks guys for piecing together a sound system so we would be able to enjoy the music! Y'all did great! Thanks to Jerry, Alan Guess and Walter Blalack (Three for Thee), for leading us in worship, to Rolland Essaff and his one-man band for entertaining us and calling our auction! Rolland, you are amazing. Thank you to so many of you who baked a cake and brought it so we could auction it off. That was so much fun! To Holly Grove C u m b e r l a n d Presbyterian Church for donating four Boston butts for our auction. A big thank you goes to Pam Cole and her mom of Cole Enterprises/ Photography by Cole’s, for all the flower arrange-

ments, misc. items and the $25 photo gift certificate they donated. Please stop in and visit Pam and her mom at 6905 Hwy. 14 South, right beside Fastimes, or give them a call at 476-1988 or 497-7940 and set up your photo shoot with Pam. She has some nice antiques and other really pretty items in the store as well! And the thanks go on, to Ms. Patsy Fee and all her helpers for making those delicious famous fried pies, the Girl Scout Troops that came and assisted. I’m convinced we’re going to enjoy Ms. Patsy’s fried pies in heaven; surely God won’t take something that good away from us. Thanks also to Billy and Ann Chapman and all their crew for grillin’ up some good burgers and hot dogs, and Melia Kirby and Marilyn Schuetrumpf for being my right hand girls. I’m serious, I could not have done everything

assistance. Also, a special “thank you” to my granddaughter, Sarah Quinn, for her assistance in helping me pain faces. Last week was also another memorable event. While at the Brighton High School Regional baseball game, my grandson Matt Scott had what I and many others thought was a bad call by an umpire. I’ll never forget it. I lost my cool as did many others. Some were asked to leave. I was asked to calm down. We have got to be there for these kids. This umpire came into town with the other team. The season is over now until summer ball, so Charlie and I will have to find something else to do for a few weeks. Folks in Almyra, please don’t forget our Neighborhood Watch Program. We will be having our first meeting this week at the Three Star Fire Department on Thursday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. This program is designed to prevent crime in our community. Sheriff Poncho Chumley and other law enforcement officials will be present. Please try to join us. Salem Presbyterian Church Worship is at 11 a.m. each Sunday. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. Everyone is always welcome. Jeffrey and Caroline McDaniel presented their son, Jack David McDaniel, for the Sacrament of Infant Baptism. The ladies are invited to a bridal shower honoring Rachel Bibb on Saturday, May 22 from 2-4. Happy Birthdays this week go to Betty Betts, Shane Stang, Joy McDill, Barbara McFarland, Diane Willey and Kendall Downing. Hope they are each the greatest. Sharon Presbyterian Church Worship is at 9a.m. each Sunday morning. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. We welcome all members, friends and visitors to the fellowship of Sharon ARP Church. We are always so grateful for our Dunlap residents who are able to join us. This week we are especially grateful for the

Salem Children’s Choir who came to sing for us. Covington Church of Christ Worship is at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday morning and again at 5:30 each Sunday evening. Bible study is at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings and again at 7 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. Brother Mike Rogers is our minister and Brother Jeff Phillips is our associate minister and youth director. Everyone is always welcome. We are always grateful for all of our visitors. We were blessed with a wonderful sermon on Mother’s Day last week. Brother Rogers’ sermon made you so proud to be a mom, if you weren’t already. Thank you, Brother Rogers. We would like to congratulate all our church family of seniors which include Corey Pinner, Gordon Cartwright, Rachel Nance, Jessie Shoemaker and ill Matlock with her masters. Happy Birthdays this week go to Lydia Edmonds, David Whaley and Rick Langston. Hope they are the greatest. Please remember Bonnie Holbrook in your prayers as she recovers from a serious automobile accident. In closing, we turned our heat on again Monday morning for a little while. However, it did not stop us from going on to McDonalds, even in the old, nasty rain. I guess we are not as old as we think we are. Mr. Al Chaney is now a regular too. There are many problems resolved over that coffee and biscuits. Mr. Al says the man on the moon is fiction and not fact. My memory is bad, but I remember watching it on TV when I was back in high school. Oh well, we will pick that up again soon, as well as many other facts and fictions. I would like to say a special “happy birthday” this week to my grandson, Matt Scott, who will turn the magic number 16 on Sunday. Hope it’s the greatest, buddy! Have a great week everyone. You might need to fill your boats up with gasoline.

The First Baptist Church of Atoka has set up a Tipton County disaster relief center at the church on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you can donate nonperishable food, cleaning supplies, etc., please drop them off at the children's church area. On Saturday, May 15, a ladies conference will be held at 5 p.m. Beneth

Jones is the guest speaker. WIN – Widows in Need – Club will meet at 6 p.m. on May 17. The Atoka Methodist Church was honored to have the Rev. Tim Forbess as the preacher last Sunday. He also had the privilege of baptizing his niece Savannah Forbess, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Forbess. She is the granddaughter of Jack and Myra Forbess and the great-granddaughter of Jewell Forbess. Next Sunday, the Rev.

Sam Pace will fill the pulpit and Tim will return on Father's Day to preach again. I must tell you about my Mother's Day weekend. William and Pat Mashburn took Pat's mother, Charlene Pittman, and me to a lovely place to eat, Olive Garden. There we met Pat's daughter, Angela, her children, and Pat's son, Alton Lewis, and his family. It was a nice time to see everyone. Then I got home in time to go to Brighton to the pony

I needed to do without y'all! Thanks Alex and your friends (Boy Scouts, Troop #260) for helping and also for leading us in the Pledge of Allegiance. That was neat. I think that will be an annual tradition for now on! And thanks to Marilyn for giving us a new American flag. It's beautiful Marilyn thanks so much! Thanks to all my vendors who came and participated. Hopefully you were able to make your time worthwhile! Thanks to the TCCA Line Dancers who showed us how to have a good time! Thank you for coming and sharing your talent! Thanks to Libby Click and her lovely “face painting” abilities. Doesn’t she do an outstanding job? Thanks to Three Star Fire Dept. for coming and being here to allow the children to have a good look at the fire engines and all that goes with that excitement, especially boys! Also thanks to

Bob McFarland for all the time it takes to get those wonderful Amy trucks here and then allow people to get up in them and see them and be able to explore and pretend to go places they’ve never been before! Last, but surely not least, thanks to my wonderful Board of Directors that make up Dunlap and keep me straight. Lord knows that’s a full time job in itself! I just get excited sometimes and want to get ahead of myself. Dunlap excites me to absolutely no end! There is not a day that goes by that I don’t thank my God that He put me here. I feel I belong here, as this is by far the most rewarding job I have ever been involved in. I have laughed more, cried more, been on my knees more than I can ever remember or would have ever imagined. Being a pastor’s wife for 20 years was extremely rewarding, but this by

Libby Click 476-1414 Hi everyone, I have a correction from last week’s notes. Our “We the People” organization meets on the third Tuesday night of each month instead of the second at the Covington Chamber of Commerce on the Square a 7 p.m. Our website is www. wethepeoplewesttn.com. Please come join us. Hopefully all of you wonderful mothers out there had a great Mother’s Day. The rain left us alone for such a short time. The county has such a great deal of work to do if you have noticed the road banks and growth of the grass and weeds. There is still such devastation in so many areas. Please continue to remember these circumstances and all efforts of relief from the flooding in your prayers. Last week was dentist week for two of my grandsons, Luke Scott and Chase Kidd, and for me as well. MiMi had the honor of taking them both on different days and then I went. I’m glad to be available for them anytime, unless it’s before 9 in the morning. Please remember this Saturday, May 13 as we commemorate the Armed Forces Day. Our gratitude goes out to all who have served in the military and are presently serving. Last Saturday was a fun-filled day, as the Dunlap Fun Fest was able to proceed with no rain. I won’t mention all the participants due to fear that I would leave someone out. However, our music was very entertaining and Miss Patsy’s fried pies that everyone looks forward to each year were terrific. I personally would like to thank a young man by the name of Alex Schuetrumpf (German name) who helped me get my equipment and table set up for my face painting. Alex is a Boy Scout working on his Eagle project. It’s so inspiring to see young men like this working so hard and grateful to be of

“displaced” after the flooding. We had never seen such a beaver closeup before. They are menacing looking. Mothers Day has come and gone. I hope the children of the mothers remembered them. I received several beautiful cards from my children and visits from all but two. These two were out of town. Trey was working on the rig, which has been moved because of the spill. Danielle is in Hawaii as of this writing. She went snorkeling with the dolphins and turtles among other adventures I am sure. She has promised a book on orchids for Mothers Day. She had given me a beautiful orchid on her last trip to Hawaii. It

bloomed for a few weeks and all my customers were in awe on how many blooms it beheld. So naturally I have been afraid to do anything other than water it until I had some information. She also gave me a TI plant, two hibiscus, and a plumeria. I’m waiting for them to begin to grow, so I keep you posted on them. My birthdays this week are Andrew Ballard and Amy Wilkerson. Congratulations to Paige Copeland for graduating last Saturday from the U of M. She is the daughter of David and Kim Copeland and they just happen to be my neighbors. When Paige was in high school she worked at the salon as a receptionist. She has always had the best disposition and is such a joy to be around. Paige and Hannah Mae graduated together and she also sang a duet with

Jenna Howard Shelton at Hannah and Ryan’s wedding. Bravo to you Paige and also David and Kim. Empty nest will be here before you know it. Our prayer list includes the Pate family, the Yon family, the McDivitt family, Verna Lou Timbs, Rebena Atteberry, Keith McClerkin, Phyllis McIntosh, Joyce Starnes, the McIntyre family, Norma Columbus, Aunt Francis Moore, the Eubanks family, the individuals and families that have been so devastated by the recent flooding, and we all pray that there will be a solution that will work for the oil well that is leaking into the Gulf. Live each day as if it is your last, make sure you spread your love and make sure that those you do love know it, and laugh often cause you can’t laugh enough through this crazy life. Debe

try to have something they all like to watch on TV, but sometimes they all fall asleep. Ruth is the one who got our family reunion started and the one keeping it going; we meet twice a year at Ryan’s in Millington in May and November. Don Billings preached at Randolph Assembly Wednesday night, April 28; it was also his birthday. Larry and Emily Sweeny, who live in Brownsville, went last week to New York and visited his dad. They visited Emily’s mother Thursday, April 29; they went out to eat and they talk each day by phone. Her name is Hazel Mooneyham. Jerry Neal Young died

on April 18 after a short illness he leaves one sister, Carol Lumley; he lived in Texas. Tommy Cousar died on April 30, John A. “Johnny” McIntyre on April 2 and Guy “G.T.” Stegall died April 22. Sympathy to their loved ones. Mrs. E.T. Etchols, widow of Rev. E.T. Etchols, died recently. Connie and John Blyue went to Dyersburg Friday shopping. They ate the Catfish Galley before coming home. On the prayer list: Mary Moore, Megan Hobock, Mindy Tankersley, Vickie Baker, Berry Dillender, Karla Morgan, Jada Cousar, Shawn Cousar, Moviline Cousar, Hop Gibbins, Bill Neafus, Bill Stimpson, June Glass, Dell Ferguson, Patra Ballard, Louise Bomar, Lois Conger, Mary Gray, Odis Poole, Verna Timbs, Pol-

ly Branch, Nadine Kellum, Brial Ferrell, Rev. A. A. Lawrence and wife Charlotte, Trixie Dawson and family, Donnie, Rita and Will Haislip. Will Womack was at church at Randolph Assembly Sunday with his grandmother and greatgrandmother, Glenda Womack and Annie Sue Tankersley. Sunday, May 2, they sang to ones having a birthday, but not a one of us present at Randolph Assembly. Connie Blyue celebrated her birthday April 28 with gifts and many expressions of love for her wonderful day. Will Haislip had a birthday on May 4; he turned 12 years old. Rev. A.A. and Charlotte Lawrence gave us some Carmack strawberries from Ripley on Friday, April 29. Thank you so much.

cute but had some unnecessary words in it that didn’t enhance the movie at all. But we had a good time being together. Clint and I just got back from going to the movies in Atoka again, this time seeing “Iron Man 2” for my Mother’s Day gift from him. It was good! We ate supper while down there. Bonnie Holbrook was in a car accident last week and sustained several injuries. She is in my prayers for a full recovery. Preston Stanley is having tests and Bobbie Deen will undergo a procedure later this week; they are in my prayers also, as well as so many others and our servicemen and women. Sympathy is extended to the Clifton family in the death of Bailey Clifton, to the Thomas family in the death of Doris Thompson, and to the Gatlin family in the death of Linda Gatlin. They are all in my prayers. Mary Sue Clifton Clark and Martha Thompson Godwin were both classmates of mine. The birthday party at Covington Manor will be Saturday at 2 p.m. and the youth-led devotional at Covington Care will be on Sunday at 4. That evening members of the Covington Church of Christ will have their monthly fellowship meal featuring Mexican cuisine.

We were glad to see the youngsters and chaperones return from their cold weekend retreat at Camp Takotah in Arkansas, yesterday. Some said they took shorts to wear; I had a sweatshirt on Saturday. It was so cold! The CIA group will have a pajama party and movie night this Friday and the KIX group will have game day on the 16th. Happy birthday this week goes to Lydia Edmonds on May 9, to David Whaley on the 12th and to Rick Langston on the 15th! And this from Marion Davis: The praise service on Saturday, May 15 at 6 p.m. at Clopton United Methodist Church, 5285 Brighton-Clopton Road, will feature Ronnie Twisdale and the church choir. Sunday, May 16 is homecoming day. Join us for Sunday school at 10 a.m., worship at 11 a.m., and a potluck lunch immediately after worship. Our pastor, Rev. John Jones, will preach. Thanks, Marion! I worked out in the yard all day Saturday, planting things and setting out plants in pots on the front porch and deck, and cleaning out crowded plants and poison ivy from my flower beds. I also planted some zinnia seeds. Love zinnias and can’t wait for them to bloom! Then I trimmed low limbs off the maple trees in the back yard and painted the front of our little shed that also con-

tains our chicken house and have my eyes set on making it a potting shed if James doesn’t get any more chickens! All that on top of running around for the farmers every time they called! I slept well that night! I received a call from Danny Bland Saturday! He read in the column that I had been in touch with his “favorite teacher”, Mary Yoe Spooner, and wanted to know if she knows about their BHHS class’s 50th reunion in October. I told him that she had mentioned coming to that reunion in her letter, so he is looking forward to seeing her. It was so good to talk to someone from the ol’ East Liberty Neighborhood! Thanks to Wayne and Mary Culver for Lyla’s laminated birth announcement from The Leader last week! Love the snowy picture of their house on the front of their card! “Thanks for Reading” this week goes to Danny Bland, Dorothy Smith and Charles “Chilly” Southall! Sa-lute!

Brighton By Debe Simonton 268-0091 Hello Brighton readers, I really had mixed emotions about the rain today (Monday). In a way some parts of the gardens needed it and then some of the others didn’t. I had cut my iris over the weekend and had that in a vase on the kitchen counter. This morning the spent blooms were leaking on the counter. I suppose they were “water logged” from the wet ground. I don’t think I have ever seen irises drip like that. This past Thursday, Danielle and I were dropping off the grandsons and noticed two huge beavers slumbering across the road down the side of the drive, and down to another large pond. We were in shock! This was in Munford on Maple Hill Drive. I guess they were

Gilt Edge By Bernadine McAfee My nieces in Sikeston, Mo., have a busy life since they are retired. Joan goes to the Heritage House weekdays, eats lunch and works on a puzzle; she goes to the nursing home in Bertrand and visits Berry Dillender to take her a sandwich and visits awhile. She and her sister Elaine go out to eat often. Elaine has seven dogs and three cats; she goes places with the singles group at church. My other niece, Ruth Dillender of Bertrand, is the only one still working. My nephew Victor McClung is also retired and he enjoys it. Joan and Elaine go over and visit him and his wife Paula on Sunday nights; they

It’s a starry night, following a cloudy, rainy day. We got a little over an inch, I think. Didn’t need it! This week’s Farm Report: Beans should be popping up tomorrow. Corn is getting some height to it and winter wheat is green and will be history next month. It’s cotton planting time, also, when it gets dry again. I had a good Mother’ Day, getting to choose where we had lunch, then being by myself all afternoon, reading a good book! Lyla Grace made her first appearance at church yesterday, being quiet all through church then going to sleep during the closing song. Good start! Lyla went to the doctor last Thursday and went from 6 pounds, 12 ounces to seven pounds, 10 ounces! I got started on my crown last week; had decay under my old crown. Leave it to me! Lots of grinding went on, and now I have a “tin can” till the new crown comes in. I enjoyed our church ladies’ First Friday Dinner and Movie Night. Going with me were Mary Joyce Coughlan, Bonnie Glass and Delores Whaley. Michelle Nowak of Millington met us for dinner and accompanied us to the movie, “The Backup Plan”. It was real

TFRW names Ward general counsel NASHVILLE – Last week, Tennessee Federation of Republican Women’s (TNFRW) President Susan Witcher announced that West Tennessee Attorney Jeff Ward has been named as the Federation’s General Counsel. “Jeff Ward is great attorney and a fearless Republican. He will do a fantastic job representing the Federation across the state,” said Witcher. “The political process is getting more complex every day, having an experienced advisor is an absolute necessity,” continued Witcher. Ward stated that he was “thrilled to be asked” to represent the largest and most active women’s organization in Tennessee. “As the son and grandson of strong republican women, I am humbled by this great opportunity.” Jeff Ward is the managing partner of the law firm of Ward Williams, PLLC with offices located throughout West Tennessee in Dyersburg, Munford and Somerville. Jeff Ward graduated with honors from the University of Memphis

and the Mississippi College School of Law. Jeff Ward serves as an adjunct professor at the University of Memphis where he has taught Constitutional Law, Evidence and Law and Society. His areas of practice include civil litigation, civil rights, small business, real estate, contracts, bankruptcy and election law. Jeff Ward has and continues to represent candidates for public office, non-profit organization, government entities and municipalities. The Tennessee Federation of Republican Women was founded in 1955 under the leadership of Mrs. Alice Garrison. Mrs. Garrison became the first President of the TNFRW. She organized women’s groups in her own district and across the state before Tennessee became affiliated with the National Federation of Republican Women. Today the TNFRW has clubs in over 65 counties across the state. Learn more about Republican women at www.tnfrw.org. Covington Care Center would like to thank Mayor Gordon for reading the Proclamation, for the kick off to National Nursing Home Week. This is a very special week for the residents, staff and community.

Elk hunt deadline approaching Application deadline for elk hunt - May 31 The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) reminds hunters that May 31, 2010, is the deadline for applying for a permit to participate in Tennessee’s second-ever managed elk hunt. The elk hunt will be held Oct. 18-22, 2010 at the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area, located off I-75, north of Knoxville. Once again, there will be five Elk Hunting Zones designated at the WMA. As in the first hunt, five individuals will be selected to participate. Four of the participants will be selected through a computer drawing conducted by the TWRA. The fifth participant will be the recipient of a permit that is donated to a Non-Governmental Organization which this year will be the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Fundraising proceeds are designated to the TWRA Elk Program. In the inaugural hunt, all five participants harvested an elk. Four came on the opening day of the hunt. There is no application fee for current Tennessee Annual Sportsman License holders, Lifetime Sportsman License holders, or senior citizen hunters (Type 166) with an Annual Senior Citizen Permit (Type 167). All other applicants will be charged a $10

non-refundable permit fee, a $2 internet usage fee (if applying online) and $0.50 drawing fee (the internet and drawing fees are charged by the internet provider). For those applying at a license agent, there is a $1 agent fee in addition to the $10 non-refundable permit fee. Persons may apply at any TWRA license agent, TWRA regional office or online at www.tnelkhunt.org. Persons may begin applying at 8 a.m. (CDT) on April 1 and the deadline is midnight (CDT) on May 31. Mailed applications will not be accepted. The successful applicants will be announced at the June meeting of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission. Applicants are not allowed to reapply for an elk quota permit for 10 years following a successful draw. TWRC to meet in Nashville for season setting The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission (TWRC) will hold its

next meeting on May 19, beginning at 1 p.m. and May 20, beginning at 9 a.m. at the Region II Ray Bell Office Building in Nashville. Among the topics slated for discussion are the Agency’s recommendations for the 2010-11 fall and spring hunting seasons. Proposals for manner and means, big game, small game, furbearers, early waterfowl, spring turkey, and wildlife management areas will be presented by the TWRA staff. The TWRC is the governing body of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA). The public is invited and TWRA urges all hunters and anglers to attend.

THE LEADER will be hosting a disaster relief drive on Monday, May 17 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to benefit the victims of the May Day Flood.

Resources Agency (TWRA). “These rains flooded all WMAs along the rivers in West Tennessee, which mean all of the areas where TWRA normally plants waterfowl food are flooded and will remain flooded until the waters recede and stabilize at normal summer pool.” stated Jim Hamlington, TWRA Wildlife and Lands Management Supervisor. “On WMAs where water has to be pumped, the pumping process takes approximately four weeks to get the water off the waterfowl food areas of the WMAs, if there is no major damage to our levees.” said Hamlington. “It takes an additional two weeks of drying time before TWRA can begin planting food plots. Additional rain will prolong the drying time. TWRA will strive to provide food for waterfowl, but if the water remains on these areas past June 15th, the probability of having decent food plots for this winter will not be good.”

Monetary donations are desperately needed. Come visit us on Monday and give what you can to help your neighbors in their time of need!

Flood waters affecting West Tennessee wildlife management areas Heavy and continuous rains in early May have resulted in extreme flooding that will effect crop production on several West Tennessee Wildlife Management Areas according to the Tennessee Wildlife

Wheat crop expected to be down 42 percent NASHVILLE – The effects of torrential rains, flooding, and reduced seeding last fall are expected to lead to a sharp reduction to Tennessee’s 2010 wheat crop. Tennessee’s winter wheat production is projected to total 10.1 million bushels, down 42 percent from a year ago according to a recent survey conducted by USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, Tennessee Field Office, around May 1. The state’s average yield is expected to be 56.0 bushels per acre, up 5 bushels from a year earlier. Tennessee farmers seeded 290,000 acres last fall, down 33 percent from the previous year. Wheat producers expect to harvest 180,000 acres for grain, 160,000 less than a year ago. The remaining 110,000 acres were used as a cover crop, will be harvested for hay or silage, or will be abandoned due to flooding. By the week ending May 9, nearly three-fourths of the State’s acreage had headed, slightly behind the normal pace. The crop was rated in mostly

fair-to-good condition. United States: Production is forecast at 1.46 billion bushels, down 4 percent from 2009. Based on May 1 conditions, the United States yield is forecast at 45.9 bushels per acre, up 1.7 bushels from the previous year. Expected grain area totals 31.8 million acres, down 8 percent

from last year. As of May 2, sixty-eight percent of the United States winter wheat crop was rated in good to excellent condition, 21 points above the same week in 2009, and heading had reached 27 percent in the 18 major producing States, 4 percentage points behind the 5-year average.
