Erosion exposes grave site By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com RANDOLPH - A normally quiet community was abuzz with activity Thursday as human remains were unearthed at Richardson’s Landing. Residents said the property is rumored to be family burial grounds exposed by constant erosion of the bluff by the Mississippi River. “My son and his neighbor went down the bluff and found the bones,î said property owner Barbara Spencer. “They texted me and said, ‘Mama, we have this crazy Mother’s Day present for you!’” Her other son, she said, called and shared the news of their find. “He said, ‘We found bones and a casket. Happy Mother’s Day!” A deteriorated wooden casket and fragments of what appeared to be a human skeleton — a skull, teeth, pelvic bones, vertebrae and a femur — could be seen from the bluffís edge. “You can tell it was old by the casket being deteriorated and the hardware; you can just tell,” Spencer said. During the Civil War, Randolph was a bustling riverport city, rivaling that of pre-Civil War era

Memphis. During the war, the city was torched by Union soldiers but never regained its status as a major riverport. Spencer moved into her home in 1997 and her neighbors have shared with her stories she believed to be rumors regarding the property’s past. “We’d heard about other houses being out and there was a store and various tales about them running moonshine,” she said. “At one point one of the neighbors said there had been a graveyard out here and someone had taken and removed the stones. You don’t know what to believe and what not to believe.” She’s beginning to think the neighbors’ tales were true. Though Spencer’s land once protruded 150 yards farther into what is now the Mississippi River, it has now been lost forever to the river’s murky waters. Because of the erosion, a boat ramp and the end of Hwy. 59 West have also been lost. “It falls off all the time. It just cracks and breaks off. We didn’t expect this when we moved in,” said SEE GRAVES, PAGE A2

CPD announces cash for tips program By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com COVINGTON – The Covington police department is fighting crime with a new weapon: a cash for crime tips line. The measure comes as a means to provide a safer community environment and make enforcing laws more efficient, said police chief Bennie Carver. “It’s up to us how efficient crime reduction will be,” he said. “Someone other than the person committing the crime is always aware of the criminal act.” By offering a reward for tips, police and city officials are hoping to encourage residents to report crimes and any information they have

relating to criminal activity. Carver hopes the tipline will be an effective weapon against crime in Covington, which has the highest crime rate in the county. “If the people of the city are willing to give detailed information on crimes related to unlawful gun possession, gang activities, drug activities, burglaries, robberies and any other criminal acts, we can successfully reduce the crime rate in Covington,” he said. Carver said creating a productive city is one goal of the police department and with the help of concerned citizens, the impact of law enforcement can be more effective. A reduced crime rate

may also attract other businesses, industry and educational institutions. He also wants to create a crime-free setting for Covington’s children. “It is our job to create a worry-free environment for our children to grow up without the concerns of being assaulted on the streets of our city,” he said. Persons with information on criminal acts in Covington are asked to call 901-476-9036. Rewards may be paid for information leading to the arrests and convictions. Callers may remain anonymous and are not required to testify in court. Please leave a code name and contact information.

With the campaigning for local elections in full gear, there have been some unpleasant surprises. Two of the candidates for Tipton County Court Clerk, Darlene Wheeler and Casey Fletcher, have reported theft of several hundred of their campaign signs. Wheeler reported that close to 150 of her signs, all of which have been pre-approved to be placed according to her, have noticeably gone missing. Fletcher has also reported having the same problem. Places where his signs are documented to be are simply not there. Wheeler said that she plans on filing a police report about the incident due to the large number missing. However, Fletcher does not plan on reporting the crime citing the difficulty it would take law enforcement to actually catch the perpetrators. “We go to a lot of time and a lot of effort to put these signs up,” said Wheeler. “I don’t think people realize the effort SEE SIGNS, PAGE A3

Meth lab found in Brighton backpack By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com BRIGHTON – While mowing the grassy hill on the side of Highway 51 Monday morning, a Tennessee Department of Transportation worker found a backpack in a ditch. Checking its contents, he found something surprising: a meth lab in the making. “The only thing not in there was pseudoephedrine,” said Brighton Police Chief Mike Durham. “The

SIGNS

Continued from Page A1 that (candidates) put into getting these out.” Fletcher’s wife and campaign aide, Amanda, stated that 500 of the smallest yard signs cost around $1,100. The larger signs are much more. Neither Wheeler nor Fletcher assigned blame to who or what they thought was responsible for the missing signs. However both hope that whatever is the cause is stopped, and if it is a person or persons, that they are punished accordingly. Stealing or even moving the location of campaign signs is against the law, unless they are disapprovingly placed on private property. Theft of the signs is criminal and can be punishable with jail time of up to one year and a fine. District Attorney Mike Dunavant said anyone caught moving or stealing these placards will be punished and encour-

TDOT worker found it, looked inside and called us once he saw what it was.” Found in the ditch north of the intersection of Hwy. 51 and Woodlawn Ave., the backpack contained many of the chemicals commonly associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine, a set of scales and a mask to protect the nasal passages and mouth of the person who was making the highly addictive drug. Durham said this was the second incident of this type in the

aged people not to take doing so lightly. “Unfortunately, this happens every election year,” said Dunavant. “However, I hope this gets reported and it will be treated like any other crime. Because it is theft. We strongly encourage people not to steal these signs.” Other candidates in the county clerk race, Mary Gaither and Pamela Dean, have not reported mass amounts of campaign signs missing. However, Gaither noticed many of hers knocked down from the May 1 floodwaters and the general bad weather. She has documented where her signs are located and the ones knocked down have been replaced. She stated that originally she had many signs with long wire stands, but they were not holding up in the weather. Therefore, she replaced these with shorter stands, which make the signs lower to the ground and bet-

She does not report any known theft of large numbers of signs but expressed sympathy about her opponents’ troubles. “It is very unfortunate,” said Gaither. “These signs are expensive. I have had to replace several, but I believe it is mostly due to the flood waters and weather.” A fourth candidate for court clerk, Pamela Dean, was unavailable for comment. The other three candidates said they understand that many people do not comprehend the seriousness of taking election signs and acknowledged that removing the signs is often the result of pranks and youthful joyrides in the county. However, with over several hundred missing, Wheeler decided that the crime must be formerly reported. She stated that she planned on reporting the theft to law enforce-

ment on May 18, but had not done so yet. None of the candidates have reported their largest sized signs missing. It is mostly the small yard signs. Each candidate had documentation of where the signs were place and all stated they had been pre-approved. Fletcher expressed that if someone witnesses anyone taking down signs or knocking them over, that they report it to authorities. “I have permission on where I put up all my signs,” said Fletcher. “So if someone doesn’t want a sign on their property for whatever reason, they can take them down. I’d rather have their vote than a sign in their yard any day. But there are too many missing to just not say anything. It should be reported if someone is caught doing this.” The Tipton County Court Clerk election will be held on August 5 along with the state primary races.

COVINGTON – Last Friday, a disaster recovery center was opened in Tipton County, bring federal assistance to the county’s flood victims. Located inside the National Guard Armory, the center houses disaster recovery specialists who will be able to answer questions about applications and review information needed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to process the application. The assistance FEMA provides is a qualifying grant, not charity, said spokesperson Rita Egan. “We’re here to offer a helping hand,” she said. “We’re here to help you get back on your feet, not to make you whole.” The level of assistance is different for each individual case, but Egan encourages those affected by the flooding to at least apply for assistance. “There’s no cut and dry answer,” she said. “But when in doubt, make that call and give us the opportunity to help you.” Additionally, representatives from the Small Business Administration (SBA) are on-hand to answer questions about the low-interest disaster loan program for homeowners, renters, businesses and private non-profit organizations of all sizes. Loans are available to assist with costs associated with the repair or replacement of real estate and personal property damaged by the storms and flooding. “We have already helped 30 businesses and homes in the state with over $750,000,” said Kevin Wynne, an SBA communications specialist. “The amount will blossom from there, these are just early numbers.” All disaster recovery centers are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week until further notice. Disaster officials suggest victims register prior to visiting a DRC. This may be done online at www.disasterassistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621FEMA (3362). Food stamps, cash assistance Last week, officials with the Tennessee Dept. of Human Services announced a federal Food Stamp disaster program to serve individuals and households affected by the May Day flood. The program was implemented to address some of the basic immediate needs of the lowincome families affected. Approved by the USDA, the program is available to households meeting the following criteria: • Reside in a county that has been designated as a federal disaster area

OPINION

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Where is your old school?

Do you remember when each small community had a personal school? Many times the grammar school and church bonded and glued the neighborhood. If some of the Southern Country towns warranted a store, gin or possibly a Post Office, they felt as though they were the big Hampshire or Duroc at the hog trough. As you mature, which sounds better than ‘you gittin’ older’, I reckon we tend to forget the bad and mostly recollect the good times. Just ask a former classmate about the teachers? Yep, still today Phil, Emerson, Paul and Lynn will admit, “yeah, they were injured wildcat mean, but fair.” I remember my ‘whoopins’ and I guess I had them coming. But, famous last words remain, “they always caught me and let the guilty culprit slide by, slick axle-greasy.” Teacher’s pet! Friends, can you remember the infamous crack in the walk-way there when your parents attended school? Why hadn’t someone fixed it! On second thought, I’m glad it wasn’t repaired, because our reminiscing conversations bring up the old crack of five century years. Probably at one time or ’nuther the entire school population had tripped, stumbled or ripped due to the small gully crack. A hallowed and historic landmark. But I reckon that ain’t too bad. We rednecks are accused of being slow at everything we do. However ’em Northerners had have a big old dinner bell cracked for over two hundred years in Philadelphia. (which I think is located a few country miles the other side of Beaver Creek) No one has taken the Liberty to fix the crack and I’ll bet the clapper don’t work neither. And they call us Dixie rednecks slow. Did you ever wonder how many times someone fell from the twisted, rusty, swaying monkey bars, hitting the dirt and gravel while showing off? Even the little gals would jump up, dust off and swear, “I’m O.K.”, when they ‘skinned the cat’ and landed on their noggins. If bones were SEE RAISIN, PAGE A5

Thousand-year rain Middle and West Tennessee have been hit with what Army Corps of Engineers officials tell us is a thousand-year rain event—in a thousand years, we wouldn't expect to have this much rain—and it is providing enormous hardship across much of our state. Nashville has gotten the most attention from the nationD.C. VIEW al media, but it isn’t the only SEN. LAMAR ALEXANDER city in Tennessee to be devastated. For example, Water Street and other parts of downtown Clarksville were badly flooded, Millington was heavily damaged and the mayor of Dyersburg has estimated over $9.5 million in damage to that city. Governor Bredesen says that 52 Tennessee counties are impacted and President Obama has already designated 27 of those counties as federal disaster areas. I expect other counties will be added to the president’s list soon. On Tuesday, May 4, I toured some of the flood devastation in Nashville. On Friday, May 7, I did the same in Clarksville. My thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been lost or otherwise devastated by the storm and the flooding that followed. I congratulate Governor Bredesen, Mayor Dean in Nashville, and community leaders across the state for doing a first rate job in getting an application together for disaster assistance and getting it to the president, and I thank the president for acting quickly. I was glad to help in that process. This is a major event. The Opryland Hotel—one of the biggest hotels anywhere in America—has had to empty itself, and 1,500 of its residents were forced to stay in a high school. We are told it may be several months before the Opryland Hotel is able to function again. We hope not because its tax revenues provide about 25 percent of all the hotelmotel tax revenues for Davidson County, and that would come at a difficult time. Tennessee has come through tough times before, and, together we’ll make it through this, too. A number of displaced Tennesseans were invited to join me and others last Tuesday night at the Grand Ole Opry – which was flooded and moved to War Memorial Auditorium for the evening – to let the world know that the music is still playing in Nashville.

Readers' Views Saving a life Dear editor, It was the morning of May 1, 2010. My family and I came in the night before from vacation in New Orleans. We did not make it in time to pick up our family pert, Sassy Sue, at the kennel. So I got up in time to pick her up at 8 a.m. that Saturday morning. I didnít turn on the television or radio but it was raining when I left the house. The road seems okay as I crossed the bridge from my home. The water was over the road but I could still see the lines and the next thin I knew I was swept away by the water. I thought to myself, îI need to put my window down and turn off the car.î I called my husband and told him what had happened as I was up in some trees so you could not really see me. I thought I was in the ditch but I was over the ditch and the trees were holding me from the field behind me where the water was over my car. My husband could not get to me and had to go back, so I called 911. I sat in murky water for over two hours. Debris was piling up on my right side and water was rushing passed my open window like a mighty river. I was praying with my sister on the phone. I really thought this was it. As I looked up there was this angel named Mr. James Sisson, lovingly known as ìSiscoî walking down the middle of the street. I began honking my horn until he finally saw me and asked if I was all right and he said he would be back. At that moment my hope had began to come back and a few minutes later he came back with two young men whose names I do not know. They all were truly angels that day in saving my life. I want to thank these three men from the bottom of my heart for saving me that day. Edna S. Buhrmester Atoka

Socialism is anti-God? Dear editor, “Socialism is anti-God.” This is what was written on a church’s marquee in a very busy area of Tipton County. While this was written several weeks or even months ago and has since been taken down, I think about this statement each time I pass the church, which happens to be every day. I won’t waste time with a long drawn out definition of what socialism is, because everybody can make the definition fit their own purposes, and actually I have

Brian Blackley – Publisher/ General Manager

grown very tired of hearing the word thrown around. I won’t even attempt to defend the president who is believed to be leading us into this “socialist era,” according to many. But my biggest problem is that these “Christians” believe that this is ANTI-GOD. What a bold statement to make! The Bible makes it clear what God hates and while I don’t read my Bible every day like I should, I don’t remember seeing such a statement about socialism (of all things). There’s probably a verse of scripture that can be interpreted in such a way to support this statement, but scripture can be interpreted to mean a variety of things that it was never meant to mean. I was always taught that one should pray and rely on the Holy Spirit to lead you through the scriptures and give you clarity on its meaning. I am disappointed at the position that this church and others are taking in this whole political mess. God tells us to put our trust in Him, not in the president, governor, mayor, or any elected official. Christians should by all means exercise the right to vote for those who share our values, but we shouldn’t get so wrapped up in politics that we forget our purpose. We are to be about our Father’s business, not about the business of judging the world according to our own interpretations of the Bible. The question I have for this church is what was the purpose of that message? Was it to save souls or encourage those who are already saved (which is what churches are supposed to be doing), or was it to condemn those who do not have the same political beliefs as the church’s members? T. Jones Atoka

Teenagers are not the only problem Dear editor, All too often we hear stories about how our teenagers are driving. Yes, there is certainly room for improvement as is evident by the number of auto-accident related teenage deaths in our county. However, I would like to point out that teenagers are not the only problem. On April 29, my son and I were going to Brighton High School. He was driving. He turned on to Portersville and a vehicle turned right in behind him. This vehicle tailgated him all the way down Portersville, continued to tailgate him down Old Hwy 51, across Hwy. 51 and all the way to the band hall at Brighton High. My son commented to me about how nervous he was. I instructed him to just continue doing the

speed limit. What helped make this situation so bad was that the person tailgating my son and making him so nervous was in fact a teacher. She had no regard for the safety of herself or her daughter in the car with her nor me and my son in front of her. Thankfully, I was in the car with him to keep him calm but what if I had not been? Our teenagers are struggling with driving as it is and they do not need anyone, especially a teacher, creating hazardous driving conditions for them. Teachers are supposed to lead by example both in the classroom and outside the classroom. Next time, I will not be so nice about it. I am so thankful that she did not hit us and no one got hurt. I am also thankful he does not want to drive to school. He says he is fine with riding the bus. Thank GOD! Marilyn Schuetrumpf Brighton

Derby a successful fundraiser Dear e d i t o r, Red and black to purple and gold just got a little closer for Crestview Middle School. The demolition derby was a huge success! We had 24 cars show up form several different states and we raised $3,900. This is amazing! But it wouldn’t be possible without the help from some outstanding people in this community. Thank you Scott McBroom with Compact Chaos for all your help. You guys put on a show to remember. Brandon McCommon and Chad Russell went above and beyond the call of duty. I made one phone call and they were there for me. They don’t have children in the school system but they spent two days on the dirt work before and after the derby.

FRIENDS

Continued from Page A3 types of products mostly relating to hunting and shooting sporting events. Tickets at the event were $30 each and the grand door prize was a DPMS Panther Sportical .223 AR-15 Rifle donated by the Highway 51 Pawn Shop. The proceeds for the event are given towards firearm safety training, hunter safety training programs, range development and youth, conservation and Second Amendment education. Mostly the money is raised for gun safety and training programs for youth. A check was given to Tipton County Sheriff’s Office for $2,650 for an Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program at the banquet from the NRA foundation grant. , which was funded by the Friends of the NRA. The Eddie Eagle Program is a gun safety program for youth

that many law enforcement agencies teach around the country. The check went specifically to the mascot costume of Eddie Eagle. The TCSO plans on implementing this in the local school system with this donation. Another check for $3,200 was accepted by retired Covington High School teacher Ted Turner who now serves as the coach of the Tipton County 4-H Club’s trap shooting team. This grant was for trap throwing machines and equipment for the squad that is taking part in a national competition in the upcoming summer months. The first Tipton County Friends of the NRA banquet was held in October 2006 and raised $2,600 with only 94 people attending. Membership and participation has grown rapidly over the years as gun safety for youth has become more apparent.

“Gun safety for the kids and youth training is what we do this for,” said Evitt. “Every dime we raise is for youth shooting programs or things of that nature, such as the Eddie Eagle suit. That is what is most important, after all.” Over the past five years, the Friends of the NRA in Tipton County have raise over $20,000 for the Brighton youth shooting team, Tipton County Sheriff ’s Department, Foreign Legion Youth Shooting Team ,4-H Shooting team and other like-minded organizations. The Friends of the NRA is a local, grassroots program conducted by local volunteers to raise funds for the NRA Foundation through banquets, auctions, shoots, golf-tournaments and other fundraisers and to provide a local gathering for local NRA members.

sticking out of legs and arms, that didn’t count. Naww Suhhh. Neighbor, do you remember who broke out the back glass of the ’rithmetic room with the frictiontaped hardball? Back ’en, amnesia seeped in. How many tree swingers did it take to twist the smokehouse chains on the double back doors of the gym or who was the littlest (that’s Southernese for a runted Bo’ weevil) to crawl through the backside window to sneak in and play ball when no one was allowed? Supposedly everyone hated to go to school, but somehow the group would congregate at the (despised) school. Since we were in the building anyway, didja’ ‘figger’ out why the urge hit you to ease up to home room and squall at the top of your lungs like a panther shot with hot frying grease? You craved that many times and it sho’ felt good to release all that pent up tension! Not during school or our principal, Mrs. Cason or Mrs. Ricks would march the entire congregation to the cloakroom for ??? During some dark illegal entries, like a graduated badge Boy Scout, Don, Rabbit and I would sit on the front row in our home room. Why? The comfort without a desk in front of you to kick or knee someone. My fellow Southern Americans, we are told, supposedly by high brow intellectuals, that change is good. But, consolidation has taken away this hometown, caring atmosphere. Why would folks want to make a big school out of a raft of small ones? Could the bottom line be money? The old School at Charleston, that Momma attended through the tenth grade, is no longer. The grammar school at Arlington has disappeared. Who dismantled the historic school at Cuba? What happened to the community school at Lucy? Things change for the better, so say our illustrious Soothsayers. Most of us ‘pore’ old redneck, Southern hicks ain’t as smart as we’d like to be. However, we ain’t as dumb, as some of those city slickers think we is either. I’ve got my Old Rosemark Grammar School Memories and You got yo’ new schools…GLORY!

All who are blessed have God to thank By Pastor B.J. Maxwell By now many of you have finished reading Genesis in your annual Bible-reading plan. There are new details and questions each year but one thing remains constant. God ordains every detail of history to serve his appointed end: the display of his grace to his people through Jesus Christ. Either God got lucky for twelve thousand years (or five billion years depending on your scientific presuppositions and which only makes God’s sovereignty even more remarkable), reacting perfectly to all human decision so that Jesus was born at the right time. Or, God has orchestrated all of human history—favoring one person rather than another, allowing this and not that event, preserving one life rather than the ten next to it—to prove he alone is God and will get all glory for the salvation of any one man. A pedestrian phrase arrested me this year in Genesis 11: “and he had other sons and daughters” (used eight times in vv10-25). Genesis 11.10-30 concerns itself with Noah’s son Shem. Shem’s lineage begins with Arpachshad and ends with Abram. But according to v11 Shem “had other sons and daughters.” Why single out Arpachshad then? Why not one of Shem’s other sons? Of all his “other sons and daughter” is Arpachshad immortalized in Scripture while his brothers and sisters are lost to history? Arpachshad fathered Shelah at 35 but over the next 403 years Shelah “had other sons and daughters” (v15). They too are lost to history while only Shelah was preserved in the biblical witness. And so goes Shem’s line, getting more specific until the spotlight shines on one man: his great-something-or-other-grandson Abram. All along everyone was having “other sons and

daughters.” With literary brilliance the author stops us dead in our tracks. He ended each generational iteration naming one son who “had other sons and daughters.” When he gets to Terah, however, he mentioned his three (not one) sons: Abram, Nahor II and Haran (v26). Haran died (v27) thus ending his line, leaving Abram and Nahor to continue whatever God started with Arpachshad. Abram married Sarai and Nahor wed Milcah (v29). We’re left in suspense as to which son would carry on the legacy. In v30 we read with amazement: “Sarai was barren; she had no child.” In a chapter carried along by the rhythm of fertility— each stanza refrained “and he had other sons and daughters”—we hear this crescendo of barrenness. Naturally then we should expect Nahor to continue Shem’s line of God’s favor. But he doesn’t. Whatever God was doing through the line of Shem would go through Abram, husband of post-menopausal Barren Sarah, not Nahor, husband of Fertile Milcah. This makes little to no sense unless God has sovereignly ordained the most minute details of history—even which person will inherit his favor despite all other impossibilities—to serve his good and wise purposes. Biblical history testifies there were always “other sons and daughters” seemingly more fit for God’s purposes, but God regularly chose the impossible misfit. This is true of all who believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. Why do you love Christ and not your brother who grew up in the same house? Why do you believe the gospel rather than your sister who sat beside you in the same pew every Sunday? Why do you repent from sin and not your neighbor who is twice as charitable? Among all the better

people in the world who have seemingly done far less to offend God, why would God favor you and not them? Did God simply get lucky when you repented and believed? We are left with only one answer: “So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy” (Rom 9.16). All genealogies of Scripture are a piece of one heritage: our Heavenly Father’s only begotten Son with many siblings “who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God” (Jn 1.13). God has ordained every human life so that every human being will one day confess the lordship of Jesus Christ (Rom 14.11; Phil 2.9). Some will do so as defeated enemies who have no recourse but to admit they were wrong about Jesus. Others will do so as redeemed siblings who have been conformed to the image of their older brother (Rom 8.29). Whatever the case, of all the sons and daughters in all of history there is only One Son who stands at the center of Scripture and history. All who are blessed with God’s favor through this Son have only God to thank. As the gospel’s aroma wafts through heaven we will spend eternity confessing “For by grace [we] have been saved through faith; and that not of [ourselves], it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Eph 2.8-9). Dead sinners can take no more credit for their eternal life than post-menopausal barren women and teenage virgins can for their pregnancies. And so goes the rhythm of sovereign grace.

County commission purchases van for TCADC By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com

The Tipton County Adult Developmental Center was recently given a new 12-passenger van by the Tipton County Commission. On Friday May 14 the Center, located at 3373 Highway 59 West, had a dinner, reception and open house to show their thanks to the community. The organization and its recipients were then surprised by Tipton County Mayor Jeff Huffman and Covington Tipton County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lee Johnston, who came driving up with the program’s new van. County Commissioner Quincy Barlow was also present for the event. Adult Developmental Instructor Donna Broom recalls how enthusiastic how everyone was to see their new mode of transportation. “They were all so excited to see it,” said Broom. “It is just wonderful that

someone thinks enough of them to help out. You should have seen their faces. They have been excited before, but I haven’t seen anything like this.” There are 16 service recipients at the Center and 7 staff members. They plan on using the van for their day trips, community outings and other events they regularly attend. The previous van lacked air conditioning and one was having transmission troubles.

The Tipton County Commission appropriated $23,000 at its meeting on May 10, 2010 to purchase the van after Huffman and many members noticed the worn out conditions of the existing vans. According to the Covington Chamber website, the Tipton County Adult Developmental Center in Covington serves mentally handicapped adults ages twenty-two years and older with a training program to help them

Sheriff’s office seeking grant for new program Sheriff J.T. “Pancho Chumley announced today that the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office is seeking funding from the U.S. Department of Justice for a Byrne Grant to fund a cooperative program with Judge Joseph Walker and the 25th Judicial District Circuit Court to provide additional supervisory services for individuals on probation from that court. Target parolees are supervised by the Corrections Management Corporation case officers. This is part of a larger initiative by the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Advisory

Committee created by the Tipton County Board of Commissioners to develop and oversee improvements to the local justice system. The project will enlist volunteer probationers who, in addition to weekly visits to their case officer, would also submit to additional random drug and other compliance screenings. Participants would regularly call a message machine that would indicate which sub-group was selected for that day’s screening. Participants in a pilot project, developed by Judge Steven Alm of Hawaii’s First Circuit Court, have logged

several success milestones: Positive drug tests decreased 85percent, missed probation appointments went down 80percent, revocations of probation dropped more than 50percent. It also utilizes aspects of a program in Miami that reported a 33percent reduction in re-arrests for graduates, and another in California that logged a cost savings to the legal system of $7 for every $1 spent on the program. This process identifies and deals with individuals who need more intensive and costly drug treatment while providing more effective and less

costly supervision of the remainder. Deputies will provide timely enforcement of parole violators. In the words of Judge Walker, this project would provide a program of “drug testing with immediate consequences.� This proposal, for $22,118.00, will provide overtime funding for deputies to assist parole officers in the drug screening, and to visit participants who are not able to get to the Tipton County Criminal Justice Complex, or who are noshows. The grant will also provide funding for drug screening kits and for a dedi-

CCV-TC formed to unify voters Several community members have answered a call and commitment from Tipton County black leaders to form the Concerned Committed Voters of Tipton County (CCV-TC). The group’s main goal is to unify voters in "communities of color" throughout Tipton County

by providing accurate up-to date information on issues and examine records of candidates running for office. CCV-TC will help determine and explain how all of this benefits the black community in Tipton County. This is the beginning of a balancing force for lasting improve-

ments in our communities, said Olean Anderson, one of the group’s founders. Others have committed, but could not be present until next month. The meeting will be held as often as necessary, but not less than monthly, in various locations through out Tipton County.

Confederate Memorial Day was a Tennessee legal holiday from 18891969. Today the State recognizes it as a “Special Day of Observance,” on June 3, the birthday of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, a former resident of Memphis. This ceremony will honor the service and sacrifice of the soldiers of the War Between the States. There are 217 Confederate and 7 Union soldiers known to be buried in the cemetery. This cemetery was established in the 1850s. The graves of these soldiers of the North and the South will be marked with U.S. and Confederate flags. Following the memorial address, there will be a roll call of the Civil War Veterans buried in the cemetery. During the Roll Call, children and descendents of veterans will place flow-

ers on the flag-marked graves. A military salute will close the service. The public is invited to attend. Attendees may want to bring lawn chairs for their convenience. The ladies of the South inaugurated the custom of observing Confederate Memorial Day services in 1866. Newspaper accounts confirm that this commemoration was being held at the R. H. Munford Cemetery as early as 1867, and by 1887, these services were being observed in nearly all the public cemeteries throughout the county. In that year, the Ladies Confederate Memorial Association was organized in Covington to formally conduct the ceremonies at Munford Cemetery. The services were held under the auspices of the Baker Lemmon Chapter No. 251, United Daughters of the Confederacy

in 1899. The soldiers of Joe Brown Camp No. 1148, United Confederate Veterans, took part in the ceremonies in uniform and firing a military salute at the conclusion of the services. In 1901, the James Alexander Camp No. 257, Sons of Confederate Veterans was organized and they assisted the ladies in this effort. During the 1920s, the American Legion Post No. 67 and their Ladies’ Auxiliary and the Boy Scouts began participating in the annual services. Following World War II, members of RayPinner Post No. 4840, Veterans of Foreign Wars joined in this effort. This annual commemoration has been sponsored by the Sons of Confederate Veterans since 1976. Today, the members of Simonton-Wilcox Camp No. 257, Sons of Confederate Veterans carry on

the time-honored tradition. On Sunday, May 30, the annual Confederate Memorial Service will be held in R.H. Munford Cemetery at 2 p.m. The Honorable Tim Sloan will be speaking. These services pay homage to the memory of American soldiers; they provide us an opportunity to learn more about our history, and will inspire a greater sense of patriotism in our people.

Important FSA deadlines announced Glenn P Zarecor Sr., County Executive Director of USDA’s Tipton County Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers that June 1, 2010, is the deadline for the 2010 Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program or the traditional Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP). This is a mandatory deadline for all participants and USDA will not accept any late-file applications. Zarecor explained it is critical for producers to begin the enrollment process as soon as possible. “Approximately less than 50 percent have been enrolled or approved in 2010 DCP/ACRE Programs,” Zarecor said. “At the current rate of enrollment, a significant number of farms eligible for 2010 DCP/ ACRE will not be enrolled by the June 1, 2010, deadline." All signatures of producers receiving a share in DCP/ACRE payments are required by the June 1, 2010, deadline. It is important producers contact their local office to

set up appointments well before the June 1, 2010 deadline. Farms that have been initiated will not be approved unless they meet the enrollment criteria by obtaining all required signatures or cash rent certification filed by this deadline. Certain requirements must be met to file a cash rent certification. Producers are also reminded that spring seeded crops0 must be reported by July 15, 2010. This insures participants retain eligibility in many USDA programs and avoids costly late file penalties. June 15, 2010 is the deadline to mail the 2009 and/or 2010 Consent to Disclosure of Tax Information to Internal Revenue Service. The CCC-927 which is filed for an individual or CCC-928 is filed for an entity has to be mailed to Internal Revenue Service P.O. Box 24033, Fresno CA. 93779. For more information about these or any other program requirements please visit your local FSA county office or visit www. fsa.usda.gov.

Brighton Festival raises money for bands By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com The first Brighton Festival took place this Saturday, May 15, in the Brighton High School parking lot on Highway 51. It lasted from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and raised over $3,000 through the different vendors, booths, concession stands and activities. Sporting yellow shirts, the event was organized by band boosters and band members of BHS and Brighton Middle School. 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. The school bands performed as well as the Memphis Trio band and Ready or Not. The dunk tank game was one of the biggest successes, since many school leaders volunteered their time to be dunked in the giant bucket of water. Many of the organizers of the event considered it a success and are planning on continuing the festival again next year. BHS ninth grader Hannah Laney worked the face painting booth had her own face on decorative display to raise money for the band.

does remember trying to stand up a couple of times and that there was a lady there asking him to remain lying down and that she had called 911. Johnny would like to know who this Good Samaritan is so he could thank her personally for the help she extended to him the day of the accident. So if you’re reading this and you are that person or you know that person, please get in touch with me so I can pass the information on to Johnny. I was told by several people that the last Burlison City Council meeting didn’t go very smooth. I wasn’t there personally due to a prior commitment and I won’t go into everything that I was told transpired, but I do have an announcement I was asked to include in

this article. Our Mayor, Mr. Frank Tyler has informed me that going forward he is the contact person for reservation of the Burlison Community Center. You can reach Mayor Tyler at home by calling 901-475-0523 or his cell number is 901-299-8312. The issue of charging Burlison citizens for use of the Community Center is still on the back burner as to my understanding it was never discussed by the City Council at last week’s meeting. That being said, if you were going to contact the Council Members or attend the last meeting to make your opinions known on that issue, it’s not too late. Please continue to keep the Connell family in your prayers. There was a fundraiser held for the family this past Sunday at the Community Center that was headed up by Laurie Childress. I’m pleased to say that there

was a very good turn out and Laurie and the other people involved in the fundraiser would like to thank everyone for their donations and would like to send a special thank you to Elm Grove Church of Christ and our Mayor Mr. Tyler and his Sunday school class at Garland Baptist. According to what I hear the success of this fund raiser would not be what it was without the help of Laurie’s employer, Draingo Plumbing located on Highway 14 next to Fast Times. Another fundraiser will be held at The Historic Ruffin Theater on Friday, May 21 at 7:30 pm. Thanks to all who are helping Teresa and her family. Last week, my Supervisor Ricky Gray and I attended a luncheon in Jackson where T.A.U.D. was hosting a contest for the best tasting water in the region of West Tennessee. I’m very proud

last Thursday evening at the Three Star Fire Department. I would personally like to thank Chief John Piercy for giving us the opportunity to use the Three Star location. Our next meeting will be on Thursday, Aug. 5. I will be reminding you all again as time gets closer. Thanks to the many neighbors who took the time to get involved, it’s a very worthy program. A very special thanks to Sheriff Pancho Chumley and retired officer Charles Yoakum for sharing with us these important facts of a neighborhood watch. Our community has the opportunity to purchase extra street signs. We will

be given only two for the community. If you would like a street sign on your street or in your neighborhood, you can contact me at 901-476-1718 or Judy Dunaway at 901-4764519. It will take approximately 6-8 weeks for the signs to be received after the initial order. In closing, I would like to share a funny story. My sister, Jackie Hicks, invited me to the Al Chymia Shrine Ladies Luncheon; it was in honor of their first lady Peggy Reviere. For entertainment, they had The Boomers; this program was all about the ‘50s and ‘60s. The theme was, “You’re never too old to rock ‘n’ roll.� I was not aware we were to wear the ‘50s poodle skirts and crinoline slips. I wish I still had mine. Buy anyway, the Boomer

singers were all dressed like Elvis. Somehow she had prearranged to have me brought down on stage for The Boomers to sing to me. I was so shocked when they called my name. I have to admit, it was a fun experience. One of the Elvis impersonators had a huge head of hair. I told him in my years of hairdressing I had done many hairdos that high or higher. I will be challenged now to find a way to get even with my little “sis.� The chairman of this event is a friend of mine and Jackie’s, Miss Gladys Brimhall, and co-chairman Ida Scott of Covington is also a friend. There were many other Tipton County ladies there as well. Have a great week, everyone.

visit. We left there, came up through Louisiana and Arkansas. We had good weather and we found a restaurant in Shreveport where I got a plate of oysters – and they were delicious. I called home and

found all to be well and I hope to get home by Thursday. I was sorry to hear of the death of Faye Willis before we left Atoka.

Burlison By Eddie Kellum 476-2683 Hello one more time from Burlison. My very good friend and co-worker, Johnny Chambers was involved in a motorcycle accident a few weeks ago. Thank the Lord for listening to prayer because Johnny is doing much better now. He is out of the Med and at home recuperating. Johnny has a request that he would like for me to include in the Burlison article this week. His accident happened this way: Johnny was riding his motorcycle on McCormic Road around 6:00 pm on Monday, 05/03/2010 when he came upon a pot hole in the road that he plainly did not see. He hit the pot hole and wrecked his motorcycle. Johnny says that he can’t remember everything that happened, but he

Almyra By Libby Click 476-1414 Hi everyone, Maybe the sunshine will come out to stay soon. Charlie has gotten some good use out of his new mower. Thank goodness he got it all done between the rains. Sherri and David, my daughter and son-in-law who live next door, have such deep ruts in their yard from the flooding water, they will have to get dirt fill-ins before they can get the lower part of their yard cut.

Rhett Watson fell to Katie McCall of Greenfield in the semi-finals, 0-6, 0-6. William Eaves and David McCullough downed Holder and Miller of Huntingdon in the semifinals in doubles play and had it going in the finals before falling to Eric Sellari and Taylor Dedmon from Haywood in a 3 set tie breaker 1-6, 6-4, 6-6 (7-1) for the right to go to

Murfreesboro. In ladies doubles, Libby Long and Rachel Nance also won their initial regional match defeating Stinson and Hernandez of Milan 6-0, 6-3. The two seniors fell in the final, 0-6, 1-6, to Porter & Robinson of Greenfield. “ I am proud of the progress made by the team this season,� said CHS coach Eva Dale Williams. “The bar has been set high for future teams. We tasted post-season play and want more in the future. It has been a blast.�

to say that First Utility won first place. The water was judged according to clarity, smell and taste. A sample of First Utility‘s water will be going to compete at the state level at Murfreesboro in June. Wish us luck! On Sunday afternoon, my buddy Stanley Lawrence came to visit. While he was here, as always we were discussing current events, government, school systems and all the problems of this world that we live in. One topic of conversation was the oil rig that explosion in the Gulf of Mexico and all the things that BP has being trying to do to get the spill cleaned up and stop the rig from spewing oil.

B6 • Thursday, May 20, 2010 • THE LEADER

The beautiful home was packed with grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and fellow church-goers of Gilbert. Barbeque, beans, slaw, potato salad, chips and veggies and dip and pecan muffins filled the table in the dining room and a beautiful, very large, sheet cake was on a table between the dining room and formal living room. A lot of folks joined in singing “Happy Birthday” to him. Uncle Gilbert was walking with a cane, but sharp as a tack as he greeted and recognized everyone there. It was a great day and we wish for him good health and many more birthdays! We got home and Elizabeth and Lyla came over and we cooked hamburgers on the grill. It was nice for them to visit. Sunday, Bill and Nancy Shockley came over to see my piano (she wondered if it was the one she remembered as a child, as her aunt, Anita Green, had sold it to me years ago). Also they brought one of our pups, Lulu, with them! She took a

little time but finally recognized us and she got down and ran all over the house where she lived for a few months. She’s long and slim and shiny solid black. Beautiful dog, if I may say so myself! We had to cut our visit short because it was time for all of us to get ready for our respective churches, but I hope they will visit again. That night we had Mexican food for our Fellowship Meal at the Covington Church of Christ, but I took my daddy, Kenneth Weir, out for a hamburger. James stayed at the meal and we’d been watching a dark cloud coming in as we ate. It was raining by the time we picked him up but we didn’t get much out here at that time, maybe a tenth of an inch. Yesterday, Monday, Eric Keith stayed with us for a couple of hours while his mother, Heather, attended breakfast at school with their elder son, Ian. He played with tractors and cars, ate a snack and was very good and easy to keep. We had a good time with him. My dad, Kenneth Weir, was also here part of the day, then he and I went shopping and then I stayed at his house for the

afternoon. Came home and cooked chicken on the grill. We are looking forward to Nick Bryan and Diana Maddox’s wedding this Saturday. We’ve known Nick his whole life, I guess. He’s been a friend of Clint’s for a long time and I think he was in Liz’s class. I wish for this couple many happy years together! My sincere sympathy goes to all the family and friends of Lillie Brammer, who passed away this past weekend. Her funeral was yesterday in Raleigh. We hadn’t seen her in a while; she’d been living with a daughter in Nashville for several months. They are in my prayers. Bobbie Deen is recovering from surgery and Bonnie Holbrook is still recovering from a car accident. Frank Brown had a procedure and we’re hoping it will ease his pain. Jenni Langston continues in our prayers, as well as Kenneth Mason, John Evans IV and so many of our members’ friends and family members, and our servicemen and women. The Birthday Party at Covington Care will be on the May 22 at 2 p.m. On May 26 we will have

singing and a Wednesday night meal at 5:30 p.m. On May 28 the youth will have a workday, grounds cleanup and VBS set-up. The ACTS Devotional and final preparations for VBS will be on May 30. Happy Birthday this week goes to Amy Hall on May 16 and to Billy Kidd on the 19! Happy Anniversary to John and Cammy Evans on May 16 and to Jeremy and Andrea Newman on the 19! This may be a new feature for the column: “Reader to Reader”! A week or so ago I let Mary Yoe Spooner know that Danny Bland was looking forward to seeing his favorite teacher at their 50th Class Reunion this October, as we know she reads the column. Well, Ed Fleming passes along a big “Hello” to Danny Bland! You have been notified, Dan! Maybe you can look Ed up when you’re here this fall! I got this information from Martha Millican, a Drummonds reader, in an email: (listen up, girls!) The women’s group from Poplar Grove UMC is hosting a Vintage Style Show and Luncheon on Saturday, May 22 at 11:30

a.m. Jean Cole owns a clothing museum in Logansport, Ind. and is putting on the show. She will bring clothes from the 1850s-1970s. She plays music of the time and tells about what was going on during the time period. She does a great job and makes it a really fun time for all. Your daughters would enjoy this as much as you will. There will be door prizes. The ticket are $12 each and the lunch includes Chicken Divan, pasta salad, Jell-O fluff salad, yeast rolls and mandarin orange cake, tea and coffee. Sounds like fun! Thanks, Martha! “Thanks for Reading” this week goes to Ed Fleming, Nancy Shockley and Shirley Bready! Salute! This week’s Farmer’s Almanac Quote: “When a cow tries to scratch its ear, it means a shower is very near.” Guess they didn’t have Doppler Radar when they wrote that! I know that June is very near! This year is going by very quickly! Enjoy spring while it’s still around! I dread 90+ degree days every day! Until next week … Elaine

es; same with her sons, Tyrone, Thomas and Edwin. With all of this TLC, Willie Mae’s sure to get better fast! Jamestown’s Community Health Organization is still collecting yearly dues, which are $24. These funds are badly needed toward the upkeep of our Dickens Cemetery as well as our college scholarship fund. Contacts are Jessie Cooke, Joanna Bell, Pam Springfield, Minister Pearl Andrews or Willie Mae Burton. President Mary Burton and acting teacher Janet Mosley are still quite busy on Monday evenings at 5 p.m. with missionary meetings. Janet’s doing great filling in for teacher Willie Mae while she’s out and ill.

Our prayers are will Bessie Cobbs, Doris King, Ruth Alston, Demetrice Baker, Jennie Stewart, Mary Burton, Rev. Pink Sherrill, Posey Reed, Joseph Heaston Sr., Eugene Baker, Vernard “Big Boy” Burton, Danny Heaston, David Sneed, Alvin Clewis, Mildred Sherrill and family, Pauline Yarbrough, Ada Fletcher, Patra Ballard, Carlotta Jones, Eula Culbreath and family, Rudolph Boykins and family, Ruth Griffins, Eddie B. and Flossie Woods, Beaulah Wakefield, Jessie Heaston, Jessie Lawson, J.C.

Happy sixteenth birthday to my oldest granddaughter, Kelli Reed, only daughter of my oldest son Kelly Reed who now lives in Los Angeles, Calif., on May 20. Other birthdays are LaVar Burns (May 21); Toni Scott (May 22); James C. Harber, Otella Hudson and Fallon Cobbs (May 23) and to you if yours is at this time! Happy anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. Glenn (Pam) Springfield and also to Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Kelly on May 22. Okay, you Sherill family members, Memorial Day’s almost here and all family that lives out of town now are packing! So you need to get off the can and make those

contacts with “Mommy Lay,” a.k.a. LaRue Albritton, Joann Bell, Glodine Davis, Tamara King and Pearl Andrews. There will be three pure days of family fun: Friday will be the meet and greet, Saturday a picnic on the beautiful front lawn of Cornell and Rev. Pink Sherrill Jr. in Jamestown and ending with a spirit-filled service on Sunday morning at Bright Hill, which is the family church. The Rev. S.P. Cole and First Lady Wilada are waiting for you all to come! The time our prayers are with the Sherfield family of Mason. Antwan, a son of the family, lost their beloved father. Palmer Funeral Home of Mason was in charge of his services. Antwan is a good friend of our family. Erecia and John Jones Sr., JaCinta Annette Burton, Tyler and John Jones Jr. of Jamestown.

On last week, the Jolly Corteria ladies, along with their president, LaRue Albritton, met in the lovely home of John and JaCinta Jones of Jamestown. Hostess for this month was Annette Burton, also of the home. Annette set a lovely summer table of tuna salad and garden salad with a cracker assortment, assorted nuts and chips, cookies, fruit punch and assorted soda. Present were Mary Burton, Katarene Harber, Joann Bell, Gloria Sherill and President LaRue Albritton. The meeting was at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 14. My thought for the week wasn’t included in last week’s column; I sent it in, however there was an oversight. Not a worry, here we go again, “A successful day begins with a good frame of mind.” Until next time …

still being evaluated and repaired. So when you run into a T.C.P.W. employee give them a hand shake and thank you for all their efforts. Crestview Middle School’s fundraiser this past Saturday night was a blast. Scott McBroom organized the Compact Car Demolition Derby. Jim’s Towing sponsored the event. This was the first time for this small car derby in Covington. Neal also volunteered his truck and tractor. You missed it if you didn’t go. There were competitors from all over.

Our birthday list includes on the 25th, Corwyn Cullum and Raye Devitt; on the 27th, Matt and Michael Hedgepeth. Corwyn, Matt, and Michael are all nephews. I can truly say Ms. Liz (my mother-in-law) really was able to keep up on the birthdays. It is really hard to keep it straight the larger the family grows. Our prayers go out to the Pate, Yon, and McDivitt families. Also included in our list are Rebena Atteberry, Keith McClerkin, Phyllis McIntosh, Aunt Francis Moore, and Verna Lou Timbs. A funny about my sweet hubby... Neal was going to do me a big favor and clean my car.

My car is an SUV with a retractable back roof. So he goes to Fastimes and goes through the automatic wash. Neal has always been fascinated by all the gadgets in the car, however he doesn’t see as well as he once did. He needs readers that of course he didn’t have at the time. There are three buttons above my rear view mirror and he just decided to press them. Well the next thing you know he has retracted the roof. Panicked, I’m sure, he lets the back window down and climbs to the back of the car. He finds and umbrella and covers the back of the car and himself with the umbrella until the wash is over.

Yes, my back still got wet but what I wouldn’t have given to have a picture of that. Where is my camera when these things happen? That would have been a Funniest Home Video winner for sure. I learned of three facts this week. First was that Lena Horne was 92 and passed away last week. Second, the jukebox was called a nickelodeon at one time because it took a nickle to play your music. And third, for our water feature enthusiasts, Mark Fuller designs fountains and not just ordinary fountains. If any of you have been to Las Vegas you know about the fountains. They are breath taking. He built

his first fountain when he was 9 years old out in his family’s Utah garden. Now they are works of art. Some of his designs are from the EpCot Center, Lincoln Center, Belagio Hotel in Las Vegas. He mixes music, fire, lights, ice, and air with the water. His next project is in the new mall in Las Vegas. His largest fountain display is in the Middle East. It was a very good report on this artist on a medium quiet extraordinary. Thanks so much for keeping up in the column with me. I appreciate all of you for taking time to read mine and all the other weekly notes. Love to you all, Debe

Mt. Carmel-Clopton Elaine Watkins 476-7093 It’s a cool, cloudy Tuesday morning on the mountain. We got about 8/10 of an inch of rain over the weekend and rain is forecast again Thursday and Friday. This week’s Farm Report: Our beans we got planted between rains are up and growing but I doubt we will get any planted this week; by the time it dries out it will rain again. Wheat is heading out and corn is getting tall enough to wave in the breeze. I don’t know if any cotton has been planted yet - haven’t seen any up yet. Saturday James and I drove to Germantown to celebrate his Uncle Gilbert Watkins’ 90th birthday! The party was hosted by his three children, Barbara Thomason, Julie Price and Dale Watkins. Larry and Mary Joyce Coughlan and George and Paulette Watkins also attended, representing his late brother, Ernest’s, family well. A special surprise was the arrival of Gilbert’s brother, Charles, and his wife, Shirley, of Covington, La.

Jamestown DarSay Burton 476-1414 Another wet weekend, after all it’s been this way since it’s Memphis in May time. I don’t know why someone doesn’t change this event to “Memphis in Summer” and hold it in July or August? That’s be one sure way there won’t be that much rain, if any. All in all, the spring people enjoy themselves in mud and all. Aunt Willie May Burton is still being spoiled by her children and her husband Isiah Sr. while she’s recovering from her recent bout of sickness. She’s back home after a short hospital stay. Daughters Debra Marshall and Freda Hunter and daughter-in-laws Joann Burton and Callie Burton have been “round-the-clock” nurs-

Talk about May and April being confused, I think it should have read April flowers brought on May showers. I’m beginning to think we are in a monsoon cycle. However I’m far from complaining about the temperatures. They are terrific. The citizens of our community thank all the hard work the public works department has been doing.

This is a free call so don’t break the law. If you suspect a leak take these actions: 1. Leave. If you ever detect a natural gas leak LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. Don’t try to find or stop the leak. 2. Do not touch anything electrical before you leave or use a telephone even a cell phone. Do not smoke, turn appliances on or off or operate any vehicle or equipment that could create a spark. 3. Call. Once you are out of the suspected area, immediately call Mason gas at 294-3525. If the smell of natural gas is strong, also call 911.

Lady Cards cruise past Arlington By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com

Arlington, thanks to winning the District 14-AAA title last week, made its first appearance in the regional tournament on Tuesday. That was the good news for the Lady Tigers. The bad news was that they had to face Brighton, a team that has been there many times. The experience disparity seemed to show. Brighton scored three times in the top of the first and rode ace Leanna Coulston the rest of the way to a relatively easy 5-0 road win. The win propels Brighton (29-10) into the sectionals on Friday where they will play Houston or Collierville with a second straight berth in the Class AAA State Tournament on the line. “I thought we played pretty good,” said Brighton head coach Robin Jacobs. “We hit a little better. It wasn’t Leanna’s best game, but she was good. We’ve come to expect so much from her.”

Coulston was dominant most of the game. She didn’t give up a hit until the fourth inning, and that was the only one she allowed. Coulston struck out 11 and never really let the Lady Tigers get anything going. Brighton loaded the bases in the first when C.J. Jacobs doubled, Britt Sanford was hit by a pitch and Megan McDivitt walked. After Jacobs scored on a wild pitch, freshman Laura Judy drove in two runs with a double. In the fifth inning, Jacobs led off with a single and was bunted to second by Lauren Gentry. Sanford brought Jacobs home with a single and McDivitt plated Brighton’s final run with double to the leftfield wall. Coach Jacobs shuffled his lineup recently, inserting Judy and Hadley Williams, another freshman. “Those freshmen we put in there have really helped,” said Jacobs. “They’re putting the bat on the ball and moving people along. That makes a difference, especially when you get to this point in the season.”

Munford girls’ tennis wins regionals Special to The Leader Munford High School’s girls tennis team won the Region 7AAA Regional Championship Thursday. They defeated the 14AAA district champions Arlington 4-1 to capture their first ever regional championship. The team is lead by Seniors Megan Bates and Kelby Meadors. These seniors are anchored by the strong play of junior Niki Manning, and freshmen Taylor Patterson and Madison Willis.

Munford, on the year, is undefeated at 12-0. They will continue to compete in the sectionals against White Station this week. Munford tennis sweeps doubles The Munford Tennis team swept the doubles honors in the District 13AAA tennis tournament last week in Jackson. In girls doubles freshmen Taylor Patterson and Madison Willis defeated Senior Kelby Meadors and Junior Niki Manning 6-2, 3-6, 6-1. In boys doubles,

Munford’s Skylar Orman and Sam Haywood, seniors, defeated seniors Jake Kinas and Dylan Meadors 6-2, 6-1. Kyle Hilleary of Brighton defeated Sam Doran of Hardin County to take home the Boy’s singles championship. Mallory Mathis of Hardin County defeated Alaina Bierdz of Brighton to win the girls’ singles. The individuals and teams will advance to the Region 7 tournament to be held next week in Bartlett.

BHS soccer season ends in Arlington big. They told me they wanted to pull off an upset tonight, and they nearly did … that’s a good team over there. We gave them all they could handle.”

By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com Brighton gave a favored Arlington team all it wanted and more Tuesday night in the Region 7-AAA soccer semifinals. But in the end the Tigers got a goal late in regulation and another early in overtime to prevail 3-2. When Brighton senior Dylan Burnette scored with 15 minutes left in regulation the Cardinals led 2-1 and a hush came over the stunned Arlington crowd. Eight minutes later the Tigers got the equalizer, forcing overtime. Two minutes into the first 10-minute overtime period, Brighton goalkeeper Ryan Pangburn came out on a loose ball. The ball got behind him and ended up in the back of the net. Brighton had several shots on goal the rest of the way, but couldn’t convert, ending its season at 7-10-2. Pangburn was inconsolable after the game, but coach Richard Vandergrift was quick to

point out that the loss was not his goalkeeper’s fault. “He’s really hurting right now,” said Vandergrift. “But after game he had … He made a lot of great saves. We wouldn’t have been in this game without him. We don’t hold him responsible.” Brighton lost to Arlington 6-0 six weeks ago and entered the game as the heavy underdog. Arlington got on the

board first in the 10th minute, but Burnette headed the ball in the net after a cornerkick five minutes later to tie the game. Brighton lost to Jackson North Side 3-1 last Thursday in the district championship game. Following the game, Vandergrift and his players had a meeting. “We talked about heart,” Vandergrift said. “I told them to dream

CHS softballers advance Chargers post

track sectional finals

By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com

With a Tuesday shellacking of Chester County High School, the Lady Chargers softball team is guaranteed a spot in sectionals against a Region 8AA team. The Chargers hammered Chester County 10-0 with the game called due to the 10-run rule. What remains to be determined is whether Covington will be playing the Region 8AA champion or runner-up as a result of a Wednesday night game. The two top teams from sectional will advance to state in Murphreesboro.

By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com The regional qualifying meet for 2010 for men’s and ladies track was held at Dyersburg on May 13 to determine the qualifiers for the sectional meet on May 20 in Memphis. Here are those CHS track and field athletes who made the grade.

May 12, CHS 7, Crockett Co. 0 The CHS batting slump seemed to end as the Lady Chargers put 7 runs on the board to dump the Lady Cavaliers in the districtsemi-finals. Sarah Cousar won her 18th game allowing 7 hits while striking out 9 and not giving up a walk. She was 2 for 4 at the plate. Autumn Glenn was 3 for 4.

Wednesday on home turf. The visiting Eaglettes were their own worst enemies committing 4 errors in the game that contributed to 6 of the Lady Charger runs. Cousar got her 19th win of the season. She allowed only 4 base runners on 2 singles, a double and a hit batter. A runner reached 2nd in the 2nd inning and one reached 3rd in the 5th but Cousar stranded them both in a powerful pitching performance. Her teammates played error free ball while pounding out 7 hits including the game ender, a two run shot off the bat of Gabby Glenn deep over the right-center field fence.

Autumn Glenn, Browder and Cousar each scored a pair of runs. Cousar and Allie Moss each had 2 RBI. Gabby Glenn was 2 for 3 with a single and the homer. CHS was to play Martin Westview for the Region 7 AA championship at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19. With a win, the Lady Chargers would host the sectional round on Friday, May 21, at 7 p.m. against the runnerup from Region 8 AA with the winner advancing to Murfreesboro. With a Wednesday loss, CHS would travel to play the Region 8 AA champion with Murfreesboro on the line.

Browder was also named the tournament’s MVP.

unearned run in the first but the Trojans tied it with one of their own in the bottom of the frame. An error and a wild pitch in the second inning led to 4 Dyersburg runs that proved to be a lead that CHS could not overcome. The Trojans would add 3 more runs so that despite a small CHS rally in the 6th the comeback would be too little too late. Faulk took the loss for CHS. He gave up 5 runs (2 earned), 3 hits and walked 2 in two innings of work. Two errors were committed behind him. Trojan pitching was stingy allowing CHS only 3 hits in the game all singles by Cameron Dickey, Heath Hoffman and Will Cooley. The Chargers managed to draw 4 walks.

The Chargers fell behind 1-0 in the second inning on an unearned run but bounced back to take a 2-1 lead in the top of the third on walks to Cameron Dickey and Williams and a double by Harwell to score them both.
