Playground rebuild effort ends incomplete By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com A lack of manpower has left the Project Play rebuild effort unfinished after a week of work dates. Hundreds of volunteers were needed to rebuild the playground, which was destroyed by arsonists in February, but a lack of help means the effort will have to continue in another phase. “We didn’t have the volunteers (we needed) at all,” said coordinator

Michelle Johnston. “We had 100 volunteers at three different times, not three days, three times.” At least 130 people were needed for each of the four-hour shifts each day, she said. With 400 volunteers, the project was expected to be completed in five days. While organizers said contractors were “pleased” with the progress, the playground is still incomplete. “I don’t know what to say,” Johnston said. “I’m hurt, I’m sad we didn’t get it

finished.” The brainchild of The Rev. John H. Fullerton, Jr., the $300,000 park was originally built in the summer of 2003 through community donations and volunteer support, which saved the community approximately $100,000 in building costs. On Tuesday, Feb. 16, a fire completely destroyed the playground at Cobb-Parr Park. A 911 call at 6:28 p.m. alerted officials of the fire but by the time they arrived minutes later, the playground

was already engulfed in flames. The outrage that followed the playground’s destruction brought the community together to raise funds to replace the destroyed haven for children. U. S. Country 51 93.6, The Leader and the Covington Parks and Recreation Department hosted a radiothon to raise the money needed to cover the playground’s insurance deductible. The fundraiser resulted in more than $21,000 in donations. SEE PARK, PAGE A2

JUST KEEP SWIMMING! On June 29, the Covington Manta Rays hosted a swim meet in which six teams from the surrounding areas participated. During the meet, the teamʼs youngest swimmer, 4-year-old Jonah Hensley, reportedly jumped in for the first time and was cheered on by his family and the rest of the team as they walked the length of the pool while he completed his 25-meter freestyle. Swimmers placing first in at least one of their events were Arianna Stearns, 50-meter fly; Cullen Schwarz, 100-meter freestyle; Ben Roberts, 25-meter backstroke; Elijah Stearns, 50-meter backstroke and 50-meter freestyle. Pictured above, Annalea Posey takes the lead in the 50-9meter backstroke. The teamʼs next meet will be on Tuesday, July 6 at 6 p.m. at the Covington City pool.

Brighton’s ‘rose man’ offers reward for arrest

SEE FOURTH, PAGE A3

MPD selected for accreditation

By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com BRIGHTON – After vandals struck his greenhouse, a Brighton man known for his roses is offering a reward for an arrest. Whit Wells, who in his greenhouse has created hundreds of different rose hybrids, is offering $500 for information leading to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for the vandalism to his greenhouse and damage to hundreds of roses. “We’ve already had to throw 500 away,” Wells said Tuesday afternoon. “There will be more, too.” As a boy he grew up helping his grandmother in her rose garden and now, more than 70 years later, still grows them at his home on Lucy Kelly Road. Three weeks ago while he was in the hospital, vandals struck his greenhouse, cutting holes in the plastic and making it difficult to keep the inside cool. “It opens everything up,” he said. “It lets all the outside air in. I lost all of my insulation because its two pieces of plastic, and we got a little fan that blows them apart.” Wells said the weapon used may be the best clue for finding the vandals. A distinctive knife was found on the ground near one of the holes.

It’s become an annual tradition to celebrate the country’s independence in lawn chairs or blankets in the middle of Munford’s City Park. First the band plays, entertaining event-goers with its delightful sounds, and children play as the sun slowly creeps beyond the horizon.

Investigators hope someone recognizes it and will admit to the crime. “The people that went in, whether it’s a greenhouse a vehicle in a driveway, whether it’s a TV inside a house, they don’t have any business touching what’s not theirs,” Tipton County Sheriff Pancho Chumley said. In all, there are about 5,000 roses in the greenhouse. Wells says it will cost thousands of dollars to repair the damage.

“I don’t know what they were hunting, but evidently they didn’t find it,” Wells said. “I don’t know if they were doing it for meanness or thought I was growing marijuana in there.” Deputies hope the distinctive knife will be the key to solving this unusual crime. If you have any information about this case, call the Tipton County Sheriff’s Department tip line at 901475-3307.

MUNFORD – The City of Munford Police Department has cleared the first hurdle in the accreditation process offered through the Tennessee Law Enforcement Program. In a letter dated June 8, Police Chief Jim Harger received formal word that his force was selected from amongst the police departments throughout the state of Tennessee to begin the accreditation process. Eleven police forces were chosen to participate in this inaugural program fostered by the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police, Tennessee Municipal League (TML) and Municipal Technical Advisory Services (MTAS.) Many benchmarks must be met and documented to receive the accreditation: proper use of force/deadly force, search and seizure, legal requirements for arrest – with or without a warrant, offduty authority, mutual aid and emergency assistance, pursuit driving and response to routine and emergency situations. All directives must be achieved, documented and submitted to a professional Standards Committee. Police Chief Harger noted the tax savings to the citizens of Munford by achieving this accreditation, “After accreditaSEE MPD, PAGE A3

Continued from A1 Now, nearly five months later, organizers are hoping the community rallies around the next phase of the rebuilding effort. Johnston said she appreciates the volunteers who continually worked last week but hopes for more when the next set of work dates begins. The next set of dates, however, is still undetermined. “Hopefully it will be sometime in July,” said city employee Lessie

Fisher. “The sooner, the better.” Fisher said the dates will be determined by the contractors and which dates they have open to travel from their offices in New York. She’s hoping a strong turnout will get the job done the next time around. “If we got a Friday, Saturday and Sunday and had a good, strong push, we should be good,” said Fisher. Work dates will be announced by the city.

Until then, Fisher, Johnston and a host of other organizers and volunteers are hoping for more manpower in order to finish the playground for the children. Volunteers are not only needed for the construction aspect, but also for other areas, such as childcare, preparing and serving food and more.

Project to relieve sewer congestion By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com If you’ve noticed construction in some of Covington’s residential neighborhoods, you’re not alone. Many people have noticed and many people are curious. Soon, many residents will enjoy the benefits of the construction, said public works director Robert Martin Simpson. “We’re working on a sewer rehabilitation project,” he said. “Through a USDA rural development grant, we have a contract for South Maple, North Maple, Park Street and Kimbrough Drive.” The project will bring uniformity in the sizes of sewer pipes, which will result in more efficient and reliable service. Simpson said the areas targeted typically have repetitious calls for service. “The sewer pipes here are really old and after time they fall in and stop up, this should give folks relief on that.” Simpson said when service calls were made in these areas, often pipes were replaced with pipes of different sizes. Making the pipes consistent will make the sewer system more effective and result in fewer calls and less taxpayer dollars being spent on repairs. The project began in March and is expected to be completed early this fall.

Continued from A1 tion, the TML Risk Management Pool, which provides the City’s insurance plan, will offer the MPD a discount of $100 per officer and a 25 percent rebate on our annual application fee.” Another bonus of the accreditation process is the solidity of cases in a court of law. “The MPD has always followed the procedures and processes required by law. Once accredited, our force will be documented as maintaining consistent standards of operation.” added Harger. Munford Mayor Dwayne Cole said, “The Munford Police Department has always been committed to the highest standards in law enforcement. This selection process for accreditation points out that our force is amongst the best in the State. We are very pleased to have been selected and thank Chief Harger and his force for their efforts.” The Munford Police Department has been recognized before for its working standards,

having received national accolades. In 2009, BusinessWeek recognized the City of Munford as the fourth most affordable suburb in America. To meet that designa-

tion, safety factors weighed heavily. Also in 2009, Tipton County was recognized by Progressive Farmer as the third safest rural county in America.

OPINION Family finds more gains than losses after flood

All too often we let our experiences define us instead of direct us, get us down instead of lift us up. It’s easy to be angry and upset after losing your home and belongings during a natural disaster, but families like the Crosses have found more gains than losses in the wake of the May Day flood. Two months ago, Christa Cross and her family woke up to find eight inches of water in their Bride Road home. Her son’s toddler bed and toys were floating; her SUV had a difficult time starting. She and her husband John eventually made their way to safety through the devastating OFF THE RECORD floodwaters and torrential rains, but it wasn’t without worry ECHO D AY and panic. “That was the scariest part of the (morning) …” said Christa. “What were the kids thinking, how were they feeling, were they physically safe? I didn’t have a plan. Next time I will.” The Cross family was one of hundreds to wake up to epic flooding due to unprecedented rainfall in Tipton County on May 1. Approximately 12-20 inches of rain fell over the county in an eight-hour time frame, an event the Army Corps of Engineers has determined to be a 1,000-year flood. It was the worst flooding in Tipton County’s history and resulted in more than $20.44 million in damage to public infrastructure. The chances of such an event occurring are 1/10 of one percent. In the two months since, Tipton County became one of 46 counties in Tennessee to be declared federal disaster areas. Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Small Business Association set up a disaster recovery center in Covington and brought assistance in the form of low-interest loans for homeowner with losses. To date, more than $244 million has been approved for federal assistance since the May 4 disaster declaration. With nearly $90,000 in damages to their one-storyhome, the Cross family lost furniture, clothes, toys, electronics, books and precious family mementos, but they didn’t lose their spirit. Christa made sure of it. PLEASE SEE RECORD, PAGE A5

hen Daddy bought our house in Rosemark little did I know what we were getting into. It seems we had been renting at several locations which often initiated moving to better facilities, if located, but finally good fortune raised its opportunistic head. The present generation would not understand but the condition of the barn and garden was the primary selling or buying points. Youngsters may ask what was so important about the barn and garden? Our brilliant senior citizens remember. The size and was it falling down? The type of lumber, a tight tin roof and solid footing? Enough area was required for a hay loft and area for stalls and stables. Plenty of space to exercise milking, birthing, vaccinating, doctoring, vetting and working on cattle and hogs with SOUTHERN RAISIN' ample feed storing room. O TIS GRIFFIN During our many front porch swing visits Momma and Daddy took me back in time with just how hard it was to accumulate anything with practically no finances. Daddy would say, “there was no money in circulation.” (Southernese for ever’body was broke and ‘pore’) Continuing with, “Bo, when yo’ Mammy and me made a decision it had to be right or we all suffered real, real bad.” My fellow country Southerners can drift back only a few decades and recollect the sensitivity of feeding a house full of window shade snatchers, putting a roof over their heads and some rags on their backs. Many a time I listened to the misunderstood changes taking place in our modern world. What is referred to presently as subdivisions was challenged as, “them folks ain’t looking ahead.” Fired up now, “they ain’t got enough room to turn around in the front yard and there ain’t no shade trees to set under.” Further, “I’ll bet you could come back from the mail box and walk right into the wrong house as they look so much alike.” (Never happened) As the naval base expanded houses were located real close to one ’nuther to accommodate the many arrivals. Neighbor, needless to say in Daddy’s eyes, no arrangements were made for a garden, milk cow, chickens or hogs. I reckon that was why Daddy and Momma were so proud to establish their own way of sustaining life without depending on someone else. Once satisfied the barn was fit, the question was

Readers' Views Wall Street reform missing the mark Dear editor, The federal legislation regarding Wall Street reform now in the final stages of Congressional approval is missing the mark. What was supposed to reorganize the way Wall Street conducts business and protects taxpayers from future crises is, in fact, imposing new burdens and restrictions on our traditional banks like those founded here in Covington, which had nothing to do with causing the crisis in the first place. The banks here in Covington are vital in the support of economic growth and job creation. However, legislation undermines the efforts of these community banks. The bill recently passed by the senate contains 30 new or expanded regulations that apply to community banks, and many of these regulations are not even remotely connected to the financial crisis. For example, the senate bill contains an amendment that man-

dates government controls on the price retailers pay for accepting debit cards from their customers. This has absolutely no connection to the financial crisis. Another example is the proposed new consumer financial regulator. The authority granted to this new federal bureau is so broad and ill-defined that it essentially puts government in the business of deciding what services are right for bank customers. A bank like mine could reasonably conclude that it is not worth offering some banking services that are specifically designed for our customers because the services don’t have the bureau’s stamp of approval. This kind of invasive oversight undermines the essence and strength of community banks – namely, the relationships we have with our customers. How can we serve our communities if we can’t tailor products to meet the specific needs of our customers? Then there is the fact that even though the new consumer rules would apply both to banks and

non-bank lenders, enforcement against non-banks like the one state and federal regulators use to examine banks like ours. How will this legislation protect consumers from entities outside the traditional banking industry? Even more astonishing is the fact that this new consumer bureau is given no authority over securities transactions. Bankers support financial reform, including some of the key provisions in this legislation. But, this bill goes way beyond these needed reforms and heaps even more red tape and restrictions on banks like ours that have always put our customers first. Congress has missed the target of reforming Wall Street firms and brokers that caused the recent financial crisis and have instead hit the traditional banks. As a result, our customers and communities will suffer. Is this the kind of reform consumers hand in mind? Ralph Cousar, president BancorpSouth

UT-Martin tuition increases 9 percent MARTIN, Tenn. — The University of Tennessee Board of Trustees approved a 9 percent instate tuition increase for students attending the University of Tennessee at Martin effective for the 2010 fall semester. Approval came Thursday during the board’s annual meeting in Knoxville. Instate tuition and fees, including the new tuition rate, will now cost undergraduate students an additional $210.50 or $3,095 per semester to attend UT Martin. Full-time undergraduate enrollment is a minimum of 12 hours. Out-of-state undergraduate tuition will also increase 9 percent for an additional $722.50 or a total cost of $9,300 per semester. “This increase will enable UT Martin to sustain a high level of academic excellence and personalized student services while still holding tuition levels well below other states,” said Dr. Tom Rakes, UT Martin chancellor. Tuition and fees will increase $253 for instate graduate students at UT Martin for a total cost of $3,582 per semester starting this fall. Total cost for out-of-state graduate students will increase $765 to $9,787 per semester. Full-time graduate enrollment is nine hours per semester.

This increase will enable UT Martin to sustain a high level of academic excellence and personalized student services while still holding tuition levels well below other states – Dr. Tom Rakes Other actions involving UT Martin that were approved included: •A two-year pilot regional tuition rate for undergraduate students who meet current admissions standards but reside in three Mississippi counties contiguous to the state. This regional rate would include all instate charges plus an additional 25 percent out-of-state differential for eligible students from Alcorn, Tippah and Tishomingo counties. The regional tuition rate will begin fall 2010. Since 1998, UT Martin has administered the UT Martin McNairy County Center/Selmer, which serves McNairy County and the Southwest Tennessee area bordering Mississippi. •The naming of the alumni center as the Nick and Cathy Dunagan Alumni Center in honor of the Dunagans, both UT Martin alumni. He is

chancellor emeritus and she is the university’s former first lady. •The naming of the Kelly Murray Investment Management Room in the Business Administration

Building; the Steven E. Rogers Media Center in the Paul Meek Library; the Kathleen Elam Multipurpose Room in the Bob Carroll Football Building; the Houston Gordon Museum in the Paul Meek Library; and the Dorotha Norton Classroom in Gooch Hall. •A $3.3 million campus lighting upgrade. •A $20 special course fee/academic enrichment fee for Department of Agriculture, Geosciences and Natural Resources classes that is estimated to generate $34,860 annually to be used for experiential learning.

RAISIN'

Contined from page A4 quickly answered as the garden was stepped off with a slight slope which included a close proximity to the big house. (the little house was leaning all alone in the soon to be hog lot). As country folks remember the size of the garden was determined by the number of squalling mouths similar to little stretched out neck jaybirds waiting on their loving Momma to swoop in and parachute some grub. Friends, after hours reliving the past of studying on the subject of designing a huge rich garden, a slight smile only pursed his now wrinkled brow with how proudly he lamented of the hard work but the accomplishments of growing ‘my own grub’. When Daddy finally trimmed his last finger nail and slowly folded his ever present century old Case knife, he looked out across Alice Winburn’s cotton field and readily replied, “I can remember clearly the day we decided where the garden was gonna’ be laid out.” I agreed. But I actually wanted to say, “I wish I had run clear out of the country to get out of the upcoming work waiting on me”….GLORY!

RECORD

Contined from page A4 “We talked a lot the first few days about how lucky we were, how blessed we are to be safe and unhurt,” she said. “That helped Emily not focus on all of the loss. We kept it positive, as much as we could. All of our stuff could be replaced at some point later.” After a difficult semester at Dyersburg State Community College, Christa had eagerly looked forward to the first week of May when she would complete her associate’s degree and become a college graduate. But instead of focusing her efforts on studying for finals, Christa and her family dug their belongings out of mud and corn stalks, the unfortunate remnants of the flood. Her textbooks were among the items lost. “Emotionally trying to concentrate on school was hard. The stress of finals, which normally consumed me, kind of lost its importance. I did pass all of my finals, but it was (with) the worst scores of my entire college career.” Ever the optimist, Christa was determined to make the best of a bad situation. Ever the student, Christa was determined to turn the tragedy into a life lesson. The real lesson wasn’t something that can be learned by reading a book, though. The real lesson was one of faith, in God, in family, in friends and strangers. “I learned a lot that day about having my prayers answered." Though they were already close, Christa says since the tragedy the family has strengthened its bonds and become even closer. It’s taught their children – 11-year-old Emily and 2-year-old Zac – to value one another, not a dwelling and not possessions, things we often take for granted. “There are more gains than losses,” she said. “We are closer, more connected since the flood. We realize we are capable of facing tough things and laughing

and hugging our way through them.” The flood, she said, has brought life back into perspective. Life is 10 percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it, so says

Lou Holtz. If this is true, the Cross family has shown that come hell or high water, they can get through anything and make it look like a piece of cake. Life for the Cross family is not about mate-

rial possessions, homes, gaming systems. It’s not about what they’ve lost, but about what they’ve gained from the flood. It’s about perspective and John, Christa, Emily and Zac should be a model for the rest of us.

Only Temporary By RICK HUFFMAN Special to The Leader One of today’s most popular songs is “Temporary Home” sung by Carrie Underwood. It is a song with a great message to which we all should give heed. It is a song of hope. The first verse is about a little boy who is going to yet another foster home after another rejection. His optimistic attitude is contagious. He is not sad but looks at it as a step to get to the place where he really belongs, the place he wants and where he is wanted, where he loves and is loved, the home he longs for. The song is about the indomitable human spirit. It is a spirit that we all should cultivate. Even Jesus himself had no place to call home. He once said, “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.” (Matthew 8:20) The Lord, likewise, lived a life of almost constant rejection but He too knew it was only temporary. “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” (John 1:10-11) “But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.” (Mr 6:4) “From that time many of His disciples went back, and walked no more with him.” (John 6:66) Jesus even asked the twelve, “Will you also go away?” The recent flood was a test for many of our friends and neighbors who suffered great physical loss. The victims I talked to did not speak of their loss but about how they were blessed and how though their situation was bad, it could have been much worse. Instead of me encouraging them, they encouraged me. They understood better than I that this situation is temporary, that someday soon they will look back with a smile and remember how they overcame this adversity. They have not lost hope but now have even greater resolve. Their spirit reminds me of that of Scarlet O’Hara (Gone With The Wind) upon losing what she valued most. She said, “Tomorrow is another day!” The apostle Paul endured much hardship and pain in this life, yet without complaint. Paul often lacked even the bare necessities but never complained. The Phillipians had tried to help him but were not always able. Listen to his words. Phillipians 4:10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am

instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Paul instructed Timothy, his son in the faith, with these words. I Tim 6: 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. May we learn to be like the little boy, the flood victims, the apostle Paul and Christ himself. May we be content in whatever state we find ourselves. May we have the attitude that I can do all things (I can endure all things) not by my own strength but because of the strength of the Lord and the strength He gives me. May we be like Little Orphan Annie who sang, “The sun is going to come out tomorrow.” Every cloud has a silver lining and even adversity brings blessings to us. Yes, life can try our patience but it makes us stronger and better. James 1: 2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations (trials); 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. Peter says that the trial or testing of our faith is better than gold. I Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ. We should have the attitude of the man who once complained because he did not have any shoes. He said, “I used to complain that I had no shoes until I met the man who had no feet.” Yes, we all have heartache in this life but let us remember those less fortunate than we are. It’s hard to be caught up in self-pity when we are helping others. As I listened to the radio Sunday morning, TRN (The Tennessee Radio Network) told how local Nashville residents who were flood victims themselves were helping others whose losses were greater. No doubt this is what the Lord had in mind when asked what is the greatest commandment. He replied that to love God with all our heart, soul and mind is the great commandment, but He added this, “And the second (command) is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” (Matthew 22:39) Putting others before ourselves and sacrificing not just our desires but our needs to help others is the real test of our love for others and for God. John asks, “…for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?” (I John 4:20b) Whatever our problem or our need, it is temporary even if it lasts our lifetime (like Paul’s thorn in the flesh), so look past it. The best remedy to our own problems is to help someone with theirs.

New librarian brings changes to Munford Memorial branch By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Dara Gonzales doesn’t do quiet. In fact, she encourages the patrons at Munford’s library to speak above a whisper. It’s all part of her plan to make the library more accessible, more user-friendly. “I don’t make people whisper,” she said as she checked returned books back into the system. “I don’t like it. They can talk out loud, just as long as no one’s in here studying.” It’s a simple gesture, one you’re unlikely to find in a traditional library, but it’s just one of the many changes she’s made since beginning her employment with the city a month ago. Gonzales, 26, recently earned her masters degree in library science from Texas Woman’s University while working as the librarian at St. Mary’s Academy Charter School in Beeville, Texas. Realizing the importance of collection development and accessibility, Gonzales has big plans for the Munford Memorial branch. In recent years patrons have complained of the lack of space and technological advances which make the library a more convenient place. Long after it had outgrown its space in the old Munford High School band room, last summer the library moved from its home on College Street to a more spacious facility on Munford Avenue. Now that the library has near-adequate room for its collection, Gonzales, along with city officials, hopes to make the library more accessible to its patrons. “Once school starts we’re hoping to extend our open hours,” Gonzales said. Currently, its hours are 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday. This, said Gonzales, is not sufficient, especially for patrons who work traditional hours. Other ways she’s reflecting the changing community is through updating the collection, weeding out the books and materials which haven’t been checked out in a decade or more and adding new books and materials she believes would better serve Tipton County. She has also started a summer reading program, magazine swap and a Facebook page. “Our Facebook page is another way we can reach our patrons and enrich our services,” she said. “Whatever we can do to make our library services convenient to patrons, we’re going to do.” Last week she was given the go-ahead to purchase automation software, which will bring the library more up-to-date. Most libraries in the U.S. have been automated for decades, but in Munford patrons still physically sign for books

and use a tangible card catalog. Gonzales is excited for the updates. “This will allow for more efficiency and will allow us to better serve the county,” she said. “We hope to be catalogued by the end of summer or sooner.” The new system, she said, will allow patrons to access the catalog from home; they’ll now have the ability to reserve books online, browse the collection at home and allow for librarian recommendations. Patrons can renew their books online, too. “Basically, it’s going to make everything in the library more streamlined and it will make everything more convenient and productive for patrons,” she said. “It will vastly improve our services.” For Gonzales, serving the community and meeting the needs of patrons is her priority. “We want to try to reflect the community and where the community’s growing; I want the library to grow with it.” The Munford Memorial Library is located at 1476 Munford Ave. For more information, call 901-837-BOOK (2665) or visit them online at http://www.munford. com/library.html.

Community Correspondents Jamestown DarSay Burton

Greetings, It’s been a racy week for me! All of it started on last Tuesday when one of my sisters called to say that we’d be going to Detroit to check up on our youngest sister and sibling who was hospitalized there. Well, five of us got in the car and headed there to be with our baby girl. After a couple of days, all began to look brighter for her. Prayer changes things. Believe me, prayer sincerely works. Momma knew that. And so do all of her children. On Thursday, our first cousin Norma Baker Lyte and her husband Chuck gave me, Annette and Jacinta a whirlwind tour of “The Motor City.” Being out first time to visit Detroit area, you just know it was a big treat. Especially for me and I grew up with the Motown sound. “The Temptations” were my favorite guy group. I was completely breathless once. I stepped inside “Hitsville USA” and in my mind I could see and hear every one of the

Motown families doing their thing! No photos were allowed inside so we picked up a few mementos to bring home. Since it was the first weekend of Michael Jackson’s death, a new exhibit had been set up very beautifully in his honor. His hat and glove were in the center. Being an avid fan of Motown, I was able to have some fun with our young tour guide, doing questions and answers. Of course, I was a riot and everyone loved it. I still cannot believe that I stood in the spots David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks, as well other Motown greats. After that we had some soul food at a place called “Bert’s” that was very good. After all the rest of the sights were captured in pictures we put them on photo discs for all three of us to cherish. Thanks to Chuck and Norma Lyte for making our day. We left Detroit on Friday, after being made welcome by our sister’s best friends, Bennie and Velois, who are now family. Stopping off in Nashville, we got to

Mt. Carmel/Clopton Elaine Watkins

It’s Monday night and 83 degrees. Another hot day today and tomorrow then lower temps and lower humidity. It seemed to have rained pretty much all over the county today but we didn’t get much. An inch was reported out at Rialto. We got seventenths Friday that a lot of places didn’t get. Just hit and miss most days but another 40 percent chance tomorrow. This week’s Farm Report: Corn needed that rain today. Beans are blooming and cotton is growing. We can use a good rain at least once a week. We went to the Farmer’s Market next to the water tower on the Square last Tuesday and got tomatoes, peaches, squash and corn. It’s open Friday, Saturday and Tuesday from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. and I’d like to go back tomorrow. Everything was good and the prices very reasonable. My sincere sympathy goes to the Kimbrough family in the death of James Kimbrough, Linda’s husband and Stephen Kimbrough, Teresa Munez and Shelley Dickey’s dad. He passed away Friday and his funeral was today. That family is in my prayers in the days ahead. My dad, Kenneth Weir, and I went for a hamburger and to visit Elizabeth, Justin and Lyla, Friday night. We stayed till the LA Dodgers and New York Yankees game was over. Nice evening! Elizabeth came over and we visited The Queen of Mt. Carmel, Catherine McCalla, on Saturday. It was Lyla Grace’s first visit with her and we stayed for about an hour and a

half. She held her, fed her, held her while she napped and after she woke up! It was a wonderful visit. James and I both have foot doctor appointments tomorrow, mine in Covington and his in Memphis. His foot has been hurting about a month now and I’m anxious to find out what’s wrong and get it fixed. I have to admit that I’m looking forward to the next Twilight movie that starts on the 30th! I’d like to go to the midnight showing that morning but probably won’t make that. I’ve read all the books! On our prayer list are Tina Bringle, who is recovering from surgery, Frelan Holbrook, who has a broken leg, Bethany Kirby, Erin Brown, Stacy Nance, Kenneth Mason, Mildred Johnson, Shirley and Eric Jones and so many others. And our servicemen and women. It was good to have Bonnie Holbrook back at church yesterday, after a long recuperation and rehab following an automobie accident. Sympathy is also extended to Jeff Phillips in the death of his greatuncle, Clinton Gooch, to Judy McCool in the death of her uncle, James Bennett, and to Cammy Evans in the death of her aunt, Iller Teague. Happy Birthday this week goes to Cameron Dickey (#17!) on June 27, to Todd Townsend and Rosie Barnes on the 28th, to Helen Goforth and Paulette Watkins on the 29th, to James Watkins and Nolan Combs on the 30th and to Lauren Murray on July 1! Happy Anniversary to Ron and Jeni Chaney on June 27 and to Billy and Ann Chapman on the

On May 2-4, Minister Pearl Burton Andrews represented Tennessee as a delegate for the first annual Parenting Magazine, Mom Congress Conference that was held at Georgetown University in D.C. She, along with a delegate from every state sat in on several topics. One in particular was on fighting childhood obesity in the classroom. She was fortunate to meet several keynote people like Parenting Magazine’s own, Elizabeth Shaw and Susan Kane as well as the Secretary of Education. Andrews is employed with Tipton County Schools where she is on staff at Covington High. She is the wife of Romel Andrews and the mother of Ashley, Xavier and Michael. They live in Atoka. On Sunday, Minister of Music Terrance Sherrill’s anniversary at Bright Hill was a success. Several friends in and out of town were on hand for him. That is all for this week.

Don’t Go Speeding in and around Munford: Our granddaughter who goes to Baptist School of Nursing got a speeding ticket on the way home one night. We went to court for her because she had to go to school on June 14. The policeman told us if we went to court and pleaded guilty that this ticked would not go on her record. We had to be in court at Munford at 2:30 that day. We got there at 2:15. There were no parking spaces. Finally, found a spot

to park and went into the court room and saw a crowd of people. We finally found two chairs and we quickly sat down. There was approximately 40 chairs and they were all taken. People were all lined up on three sides of the room. What a crowd!!!! What a mess!!! Our name was called after about 35 minutes. We pled guild and paid $88.00. We warned all our family not to go speeding in MUNFORD. DRIVERS BEWARE!!!!! For the month of June we were busy celebrating the wedding of Heather (our granddaughter) and Brandon on the June 12.

Hello everyone! I trust you’re all staying in and keeping cool! I know I sure like for my “young folks” here at Dunlap to stay in and out of this heat as much as possible! I do love the summer, even if it does get hot and “it does get hot down here in the south”. After spending 20 years in Wyoming, yes, I can say “I love summer”. We gave one of our staff members, Darlene Davis, a house warming this past Saturday as she lost everything she had in the “May Day Flood”. She has yet to get back into her home but hopefully it won’t be too much longer. She asked me if I would convey her thankfulness for those who came and for all the things she got! All of the things she received were much needed, plus she got some gift cards and some cash that will come in handy for the stuff she has not yet been able to purchase. Anyway, thanks everyone for showing love and support in her and her family’s time of need! I would like to give you a few more items that we could use for Bingo prizes this week. Some of them are puzzle books. Oh my goodness, they LOVE puzzle books. You can purchase them for a dollar at most any dollar store. Also men’s socks, cologne, disposable razors, shaving soap, handkerchiefs, toothpaste, deodorant, red ink pens, little knickknacks, Kleenex, bar soap and actually just about anything you would find at the Dollar Tree. They do love their Bingo, and they do love those prizes! Just in case anyone is wondering what Dunlap Retirement Center is all about, let me tell you a little about us! We are a “retirement community” where you “come and go as you please”. You may still drive and leave any time you’d like if you have a car! All you have to do is sign out and you’re on your way. We cook three meals a day and provide as many snacks as anyone will ever need. We do your laundry, clean your room, and even assist you with medications if necessary. We have an onsite beauty salon, a fellowship hall that we have parties and get-togethers in. We even allow the resident fami-

son. There is no other green related organization in the nation created or operated this way. TREEDC is not a trade organization or operated by special interest groups. City and County Mayors or their designees across Tennessee collaborate together to leverage university and business resources to create market development opportunities in renewable energy. The University of Tennessee Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS) Management Consultant and TREEDC Executive Director Warren Nevad stated that he is delighted that the City of Covington has supported TREEDC’s mission and outreach efforts. The City of Covington has unlimited potential in using renewable energy as an economic development tool to bring new jobs and they should be commended for recognizing that new technologies in renewable energy such as solar, biodiesel, cellulosic ethanol and gasification can help cities and counties become more energy efficient and generate new potential sources of revenue.

CHS basketball plans come together By STEVE HOLT Special to the Leader As the full time mentor for CHS basketball for both boys and girls, Dion Real has a full plate these days. Never has someone needed a base philosophy more than he to keep up with the daunting task he has set for himself in leading two programs at the same time. It seems that he has one that is working. Success comes to those who plan the work and then work the plan. “ We have three goals in mind,” Real said in a recent conversation in his office. “ Prepare these students academically to succeed at the next level; prepare them athletically for the next level and advance our programs in the process. If we accomplish those goals then we are doing our job.” One has to look no further than Real’s first two years at CHS to see evidence of the fruits of his

labors. The Chargers advanced to the Regional finals for the 2nd time in school history in his 1st season and to the semi-finals in the second with a less talented group. More impressively, all eleven of his seniors are either in or headed to college working the academic and athletic path for their own future success. After a redshirt year at Shelby State, D’Alvin Brown is set for a breakout year with Coach Verties Sails. Derek Walker will take his talents to Jackson State this season. Cortez Foster will be at DSCC this year. James McClain will showcase his freewheeling style at Shawnee JC in Ullin, IL this winter and Lester Goode will be tossing in his long-range bombs at Columbia State. As for the future at CHS, Coach Real is optimistic. He could have fielded several basketball teams from the number of boys who showed up for tryouts this spring. The number has been pared to 37

Chiefs provide summer fun for youth

at this point. What a luxury? Players want to play for a winner. On the girls side of the equation there is excitement as well. After a number of seasons of not meeting expectations, Coach Real reports that he has a team that he feels can compete in one of the toughest districts in Tennessee. The State Champion has come from District 14 AA the past two years. Real has 17 girls on squad at present with some potential additions when school re-opens in the fall. The dead period runs through July 10 and then workouts resume. Players are glad for the rest. Each team has been to four camps including Shelbyville and the University of Memphis for the girls and Ole Miss and UT at Martin for the boys. Along the way they have played a total of 63 games and have practiced until they could drop. Planning the work and working the plan. It’s the Real way and it’s working. CHS basketball is in “Real” good hands.

Munford teams honored for academics By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com

By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com The summer months often lead many students to get bored easily after they tirelessly look for something to occupy their time with until school begins. If they are looking for something to stay active with, the Tipton County Chiefs are hosting a football camp on Julne 26th, July 10th and 17th. The Chiefs are sponsored by a nonprofit organization for football, track and cheerleading. The football program is starting up after the camp with practice beginning on July 26. As an alternative to school sports or general idleness, the Cheifs incorporate players from all over Tipton County. The organization has been around for years., however, they used to be known as the Munford Cougars. Youth as young as five years old can sigh up to play but they must be age six by September 30. They are eligible to play until age 14. There are several different age divisions for each sport. New players looking to sign up for football must pay $350 and they are allowed to keep everything they receive from this. Returning players must pay $230. There are payment plans so that these amounts are not due in full upfront. There are also even sponsors for families facing heavy financial burdens. Tipton County Chiefs Director Pat Pugh credits the reason many businesses in the community sponsor players and the teams in general is because of the benefits kids get from playing on a team and

getting extra exercise. “These kids have to do something,” said Pugh. “It is so much better for them to get out of the house, away from video games and have something to occupy themselves with. It certainly will keep them out of trouble.” The football camp sign up will last until September. The camp is free for players who want to play . The last day will have food and activities and kids will meet their coaches. All the coaches for the Chiefs are volunteers and must go through background checks. Since the organization is a nonprofit, Pugh and other organizers soley rely on community time and donations to fuel the program. “I can’t tell you how much the Tipton County Schools and the Munford Park and Recreation has helped us with the program,” said Pugh. “It just shows you how much they really care about their town and the kids in our community. They have just been wonderful.” The Chiefs football teams will each play five home games and five away games in the fall. They can also be sent to a bowl game at the end of the season. All the equipment, travel and extra expenses are earned by donations and fundraisers. One such example is a BBQ contest that will be held in October. Last year the event had over 20 vendors. There will also be a banquet for the teams at the end of the season. To particpate or sign up for the Tipton Chiefs, contact Granny Pat at 484-7994.

This past school year the Munford High School boys’ and girls’ soccer teams found plenty of success on the field. The girls took second in the District 13-AAA Tournament and advanced to the Region 7-AAA Tournament. The boys finished second in the regular season district standings and played one of the toughest schedules around. Kyle Selby, who coaches both teams, was certainly proud of how his teams, both in their first year of existence, played. But what he was particularly proud of was how his players performed in the classroom. Both teams were recently honored by the TSSAA. The Lady Cougars, thanks to a team GPA of 3.49, received the Outstanding Academic Award, the first ever at Munford High School. Thanks to a team GPA of 3.18, the boys became just the second MHS squad to receive the Excellent Academic Award. Selby said coaches, administrators, teachers and athletes worked together to earn the recognition. “Academics excellence is first at Munford High School … We work together as a team to make sure that everyone is excelling in the classroom,” said Selby. “Winning, of course, means a lot to everyone, but that will not overshadow the fact that if we do not work hard in the classroom, then everything we accomplish on the field goes for nothing.” The word student-athlete is thrown around a lot these days by coaches and members of the media. Selby and his staff take the term seriously. He uses a spreadsheet to track the GPA of the team, as well as individuals, and keeps in constant contact with all of the players’ teachers. He said he realizes the time constraints that are put on students who also play a sport. “In today’s environment, athletes are being pushed to excel on the field for college scholarships,” Selby said. “They have to practice two to three hours per day and as much as 15 to 20 hours a week. If they have jobs to help their families with the costs involved in playing sports and just making it in today’s economy, then they struggle with finding the time to study.” Last year both Munford soccer teams were able to find the balance between books, soccer and everything else that goes along with being a teenager. At the college level, and even a few in high school, there have been numerous stories about the dilemma coaches face when a star player is not making it academically. Do you teach a life lesson, or put the best players on the field? Selby said that’s an easy decision for him. “I really do not have an issue with this due to the fact that I know in my heart that for most of the athletes, these days of playing soccer will just be memories and will not be a part of their careers,” said Selby. “If they do not work hard in the classroom then it will affect their futures in life. I know that some people may be looking at the wins and loses, but they have to know all of the other things that are involved in raising young adults that will be proud of what they have worked hard to accomplish on and off the field.” Ten Lady Cougars – Lauren Agcanas, Shelby Bampfield, Abby Drexler, Ruth Hull, Maggie Johnson, Brooke Joyce, Mai Nowlin, Alex Selby, Danielle Stagner and Leslie Serrano – were honored for having GPA’s of 3.5 or higher. Nine boys – Dalton Baker, Matt Billings, Jereme Gruber, Ruben Hall, Zach Kurtzman, Jessie Ocampo, Michael Ocampo, Hunter Robbins and Chaz Stoebner – received the honor. Many of these players will be back next season. “These student-athletes have worked very hard to do as well as they have with their GPA and onthe-field accomplishments in the first year of soccer at Munford High School,” Selby said. “We have very high goals for the upcoming season and I am sure with their commitment to excel we can reach these goals.”

'Eclipse' brings fans into the darkness By TIFFANY HOLLAND tholland@covingtonleader.com The Tipton County community is usually quiet and peaceful after midnight while the businesses are closed and people lay in the beds asleep. However, on Tuesday evening part of Atoka was buzzing with excitement as hundreds turned out to the Cineplanet 16 theater to see the midnight showing of “Eclipse.” As part of a national craze, the theater had a rare midnight showing for the third installment of the Twilight series with four screens featuring the show. The line to get inside was wrapped around the front of the building and looked more like a line to see Memphis in May. There were not enough parking spaces for the throngs of viewers, so many people parked their vehicles in the grassy area and up and down the road. As of Monday afternoon, more than 560 tickets sold in advance for these midnight showings, according to the theater manager. In spite of all the people, the theater seemed prepared and was still selling the few tickets left at a few minutes past midnight. Many of the moviegoers wore t-shirts and outfits to show their “Twilight” pride and had accessories with pictures of their favorite film characters. “I’ve been counting down the days until this came out,” said Shelby King, age 12, who waited eagerly outside the door to be let into the theater. “This is my first midnight showing. It’s just so exciting to do and my parents never let me stay out this late!” King’s friend, Brittany Oaks, was equally as excited to see the film. “I bawled my eyes out during the first two movies,” said Oaks. “I am sure I will cry in this one too. It is just such a good story. “ “Eclipse” is the third film based on the wildly popular novel series from Stephanie Meyer. There are four novels total and most all of which center around the romantic

relationship of a teenage girl and a handsome vampire. The series has become so popular it is almost impossible for anyone to not have heard about it, especially since the movies came out. The young stars cover dozens of magazines and appear on every media outlet possible. Even, Tipton County, which is nestled in its own small corner of the country, is not immune to the “Twilight” popularity as the cineplex showed. While many of the “twi-hards,” as they are called, are adolescent girls, there are also adults and parents who have become devoted fans. Every age, gender and race was represented in the enormous line at the Atoka theater. “My daughter got me into them,” said Donna Hollandsworth. “I am just as excited as she is. I just love them. It takes you back. It is romantic and just fun.” Catherine Hardwick‘s “Twilight” grossed over $300 million in the box office and became the highest grossing film directed by a woman. The sequel “New Moon” followed suit and broke a record for advanced ticket sales. “Eclipse” is expected to do the same and with help from the long July 4 weekend, might be the biggest money-maker of the series yet. A fourth film, “Breaking Dawn,” is currently in the works. While “Eclipse” has, like its predecessors, received mostly negative to mixed reviews from film critics, it does not seem to disappoint or deter the fans of the books or the previous two films. And filmmakers have continually stressed that it is the fans that they really care about. With this in mind, the press has played up on the books many story lines and attractive stars. The last film introduced a love triangle with awkward but attractive Bella (Kristen Stewart) having to choose between vampire Edward (Robert

Pattinson) and her loyal best friend, the werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner). This has caused a series of debate among fans as who the lead character should really be with. There are even “teams” for each of them. “I’m Team Jacob. But that is just to irritate my friend,” said Stacey Noland. “I do like them both though. I haven’t read the books like she has though. I just saw the movies and enjoyed them.” Her friend, Bridget

Holmes, has read the books and seen the films and says that the books are a must. “If you haven’t read the books, you have to,” said Holmes. “I’ve read them all a dozen times and they just don’t get old. But I love the movies. And I love Edward. I’m Team Edward all the way.” It is hard to credit the widespread popularity to anything in particular. But as time has shown, there have been several phenomena like

“Twilight” in pop culture. “In the late '90s everyone saw Titanic and Leomania went into gear. Twilight movies are in the same vein,” said retired film University of Tennessee film professor George Holland. “Many movies premiere at midnight but only have the large crowds, but with something really popular you will see the same type of crowds in smaller areas, like Tipton County. “Also, unlike some-

thing popular like Sex and the City, which targets adult women, this series seem to be more marketable to a wide variety of people. Especially "Eclipse" which seems to focus more on battles and be more man-friendly.” Even though the midnight showing is over, fans can still check out “Eclipse” at Cineplanet 16 in Atoka all weekend since it will be showing on several screens every 45 minutes. The film is rated PG-13.

Though it is typically held at the historic Court Square, the event made its swan song at Cobb-Parr Memorial Park Saturday night. Its departure to the park combined with the Project Play rebuilding effort, which is still on-going The playground which was originally built in 2003, was burned by arsonists in February. Non-profit vendors were available serving hamburgers, hotdogs, softserve pretzels, pizza, funnel cakes, popcorn, snow cones and ice cream. Many people in the community turned out for the last event to dance and socialize on the nice summer evening.

Happy Fourth of July to all Americans! As we celebrate this national holiday, let’s not forget how we have remained a free nation. A big “thank you” to all military personnel and to all who have contributed in one way or another to help us maintain the government as we know it today. This great nation has overcome some of the most difficult circumstances within our history and still remain and environment of freedom. Freedom as we have always known it to be, may soon become a challenged issue. Our baby boomers may eventually leave this great place earlier than planned, without our medications. Please pray for our leaders, both state and federal, that some of these proposed plans will not leave the political floor. I could go on all

Dear Brighton Readers, We have had a very busy week. Along with the 3rd Annual Harrison Simonton Memorial Fish Fry, there was also the Starr Harris Benefit last Saturday. We have had a bunch of company to stay and visit with us. This is always welcome for Neal and I. We have had Beth, my sister, and nephew Edward, Keith Cullum and his children, Connor, Trevor, and Brenna, and C.H., Staci and Sloane, Danielle and sons, Jackson and Riggs. We also got to see the Ballard boys, Will and Andrew, with their grandparents Rodney and Suzanne. They are here for the summer. And to go along with this busy week is Independence Day

Hello from Burlison. If anyone has noticed there’s a drilling derrick at the water plant (First Utility) where I work. A new well is being dug and the other day I had a chance to talk to the foreman over the job. He told me that he has been working for this company for 31 years. I ask him a couple of questions such as how many wells have you dug and what is the weirdest thing you’ve ever dug up? He answered that he had no idea how many wells he had drilled and nothing really weird has ever came up, but he did say that they’re always drilling through trees. He said that one time they hit a Birch tree standing vertical at 250 ft. down and that the bark and fiber of the tree looked as if you had just cut it. He told me that once in Kentucky at 1200-1300 ft., they drilled through the ceiling of a vast underground cavern and all of their equipment started falling into the emptiness before they

Just for information sake, my family of Native American Indian ¾ Cherokee was recognized by the State of Tennessee last week as a legal and official tribe. There were five other tribes recognized. This will benefit my grandchildren the most. Did you know that American Indians could not vote until the 1930s? Oh well, life moves on. Thank the Lord.

We congregate here at the house with her friends and anyone else who happens to come out to eat and usually play volleyball in the pool. It has become a tradition. I spend the next month patching the pool from the roughness of everyone. But we have so much fun that it really doesn’t matter that our pool liner has become so battered. While my sister was here we decided to take our usual trip to Martin to place flowers on the family graves. We were able to recycle the silk flowers we had for Hannah Mae’s wedding, which saved a lot of money. They were beautiful too. We went to check on the old home on the Fulton Hwy. to make sure noth-

We then courageously decided to go on the adventure to Buena Vista to find the Spellings Cemetery. By george, we found it! We were out in the middle of the countryside in a place only my iPhone could direct us but we did find it. We were elated and it is not that big.

I think that is a good idea because I get busy with everyday life and forget about the war. You can sure tell that this is an election year because of all the signs. I don’t know how much signs cost or how much profit it is in making signs, but I suppose that there is a lot of people spending money and a lot of people making money and that can’t be bad for the economy.

to vote this year. I just finished a book that my daughter Shanna loaned me to read. The title is “Charity in Truth” and it was written by Pope Benedict XVI. When reading a book I try to figure out what the author was thinking at the time but I’ve got to be honest after finishing this book I’m still wondering what it was even about. I do know that certain parts of it were about every human having a right to life and that the wealthy have an obligation to help the poor. He wrote that “Without truth, without trust and love for what is true, there is no social conscience and responsibility, and social action ends up serving private interests and the logic of power.” This book will not go on my best book to read list but don’t take my word for it read it anyway and tell me what you think.

PUBLIC NOTICE The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice to the public of its intent to reimburse eligible applicants for eligible costs to repair or replace facilities damaged by the severe storms, Ă ooding, tornadoes, and straight-line winds occurring April 30-May 18, 2010. This notice applies to the Public Assistance (PA), Individual Assistance (IA), and Hazard Mitigation Grant (HMGP) programs implemented under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 5121-5207. Under a major disaster declaration (FEMA-1909-DR-TN) signed by the President on May 4, 2010, as amended, the following counties have been designated adversely affected by the disaster and eligible for IA and PA: Benton, Cannon, Carroll, Cheatham, Chester, Clay, Crockett, Davidson, Decatur, DeKalb, Dickson, Dyer, Fayette, Gibson, Giles, Hardeman, Hardin, Haywood, Henderson, Hickman, Houston, Humphreys, Jackson, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Lewis, Macon, Madison, Marshall, Maury, McNairy, Montgomery, Obion, Perry, Putnam, Robertson, Rutherford, Shelby, Smith, Stewart, Sumner, Tipton, Trousdale, Wayne, Williamson, and Wilson Counties. Campbell, Henry, and Pickett Counties have been designated for PA. The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) is available statewide. This public notice concerns activities that may affect historic properties, activities that are located in or affect wetland areas or the 100-year Ă oodplain, and critical actions within the 500-year Ă oodplain. Such activities may adversely affect the historic property, Ă oodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to Ă ood damage. Presidential Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 require that all federal actions in or affecting the Ă oodplain or wetlands be reviewed for opportunities to be relocated, and evaluated for social, economic, historical, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Where there is no opportunity to relocate, FEMA is required to undertake a detailed review to determine what measures may be taken to minimize future damages. The public is invited to participate in the process of identifying alternatives and analyzing their impacts. FEMA has determined that for certain types of facilities there are normally no alternatives to restoration in the Ă oodplain or wetland. These are facilities that meet all of the following criteria: 1) FEMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimate of the cost of repairs is less than 50% of the cost to replace the entire facility and is less than $100,000; 2) the facility is not located in a Ă oodway; 3) the facility has not sustained major structural damage in a previous Presidentially declared Ă ooding disaster or emergency; and 4) the facility is not critical (e.g., the facility is not a hospital, generating plant, emergency operations center, or a facility that contains dangerous materials). FEMA intends to provide assistance for the restoration of these facilities to their pre-disaster condition, except where certain measures to mitigate the effect of future Ă ooding or other hazards are included in the work. For example, a bridge or culvert restoration may include a larger waterway opening to decrease the risk of future washouts. For routine activities, this will be the only public notice provided. Other activities and those involving facilities that do not meet the four criteria listed above are required to undergo more detailed review, including the study of alternate locations. Subsequent public notices regarding such projects will be published, if necessary, as more speciĂ&#x20AC;c information becomes available. In many cases, an applicant may have started facility restoration before federal involvement. Even if the facility must undergo detailed review and analysis of alternate locations, FEMA will fund eligible restoration at the original location if the facility is functionally dependent on its Ă oodplain location (e.g., bridges and Ă ood control facilities), or the project facilitates an open space use, or the facility is an integral part of a larger network that is impractical or uneconomical to relocate, such as a road. In such cases, FEMA must also examine the possible effects of not restoring the facility, minimizing Ă oodplain or wetland impacts, and determining both that an overriding public need for the facility clearly outweighs the Executive Order requirements to avoid the Ă oodplain or wetland and that the site is the only practicable alternative. State of Tennessee and local ofĂ&#x20AC;cials will conĂ&#x20AC;rm to FEMA that proposed actions comply with all applicable state and local Ă oodplain management and wetland protection requirements. FEMA intends to provide IA program funding for disaster-related emergency housing. These actions may adversely affect a Ă oodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to Ă oods. These actions may include repair, restoration, or construction of housing or private bridges, purchase and placement of travel trailers or manufactured housing units, or repair of structures as minimum protective measures. This will be the only public notice concerning these actions. FEMA also intends to provide HMGP funding to the state of Tennessee to mitigate future disaster damages. These projects may include construction of new facilities, modiĂ&#x20AC;cation of existing, undamaged facilities, relocation of facilities out of Ă oodplains, demolition of structures, or other types of projects to mitigate future disaster damages. In the course of developing project proposals, subsequent public notices will be published if necessary as more speciĂ&#x20AC;c information becomes available. The National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to take into account the effect of their undertakings on historic properties. Those actions or activities affecting buildings, structures, districts or objects 50 years or older or that affect archeological sites or undisturbed ground will require further review to determine if the property is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (Register). If the property is determined to be eligible for the Register and FEMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undertaking will adversely affect it, FEMA will provide additional public notices. For historic properties not adversely affected by FEMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undertaking, this will be the only public notice. As noted, this may be the only public notice regarding the above-described actions under the PA, IA, and HMGP programs. Interested persons may obtain information about these actions or a speciĂ&#x20AC;c project by writing to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, P.O. Box 615, Antioch, TN 37011-0615. Comments should be sent in writing to Gracia Szczech, Federal Coordinating OfĂ&#x20AC;cer, at the above address within 15 days of the date of this notice.

ROAD MAP FOR SUCCESS

A six-part series on strategic planning for Tipton County Public Schools and its students BY TYLER LINDSEY

Safety, nurturing are top priority Editor's note: This is the second in a six-part series on strategic planning conducted every five years by the Tipton County Board of Education. Part Three of this series, which will focus on student needs, is scheduled to be published on Thursday, July 8. Recommendations for keeping the students in Tipton County Schools safe includes installing more cameras, increasing camera monitoring stations and providing faculty and staff with “active shooter training.” The recommendations come as part of the school system’s five-year strategic plan to improve the quality of education for Tipton County students. Donna Turner, deputy chief for the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office, and Brian Kellum from Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency worked together to head the safety committee. Turner said the recommendations were designed with an overall goal of providing a safe, nurturing environment for students as outlined by the board’s mission statement. “Our broad goal is to make a safe and nurturing environment for our students in Tipton County,” said Turner. “And there is a wide spectrum of smaller goals pertaining to that.” Turner said other recommendations include reinforcing some known measures like regulating traffic coming and going from the school and ensuring all guests are checked in properly and better utilizing walkie talkies to communicate more effectively. Concentration on safety issues was extended to communication of emergency and alert response within schools, from school to school, and then to the main office. The deputy chief expressed the importance of communication during emergencies and tornado and fire drills. Strategies and action plans were discussed on the most effective ways to make these areas stronger over the next five years with existing tools that the school system has.

Physical security involving simple locking of doors by possibly using magnetic locks was proposed. It is known that doors have been habitually left propped open which obviously decreases safety. Constructive habits like locking doors are some of the most effective and cheapest methods of safety. “We want to make sure and not leave our schools retro-fitted with old systems of locks,” Turner said. As the architecture of each school building is different, ways and means to bring safety to each are different. Camera usage and placement was reviewed and recommendations to add more cameras and increase monitoring locations were among the items the committee recommended. Maximizing results while minimizing cost was a focal point in discussion., Turner said. Obvious safety issues dealing with firearms were also covered. Tim Fite initiated this process by providing active-shooter training for Tipton County faculty and staff. Sean Cullen headed the training. The goal of the training was to work up scenarios and drills to mimic what might happen in the case of a Columbinestyle school shooting. “We wanted to include this as part of the security assessment in tactics in all schools,” Turner said. While safety in schools and for students are of the utmost importance for the board of education, parents need to be able to easily visit their children at school, says Turner. Policies may change from school to school, as each is different. The goal is to provide a way for each school to supply referrals to those who can assist with court papers for parents. This would help clarify custody arrangements so fewer problems will arise in the future. The plan is to let parents know the safety precautions taking place as they evolve and are implemented over the next couple of years. Additional training of staff was also part of

the discussions and recommendations, Turner said. “It's important that we empower our teachers with knowledge on how to respond to various encounters,” said Turner. Because of the differences that exist in Tipton County’s 14 campuses, each principal and staff is left to their own devices based on many of the committee’s recommendations. Each school will have to mold and apply the guidelines proposed by the committee to make them specific to the school’s environment. Other safety measures suggested include standardizing training in CPR, defensive tactics, in-service training and others at all schools in the district. Turner said, “We wanted to find a way to achieve these goals for our safety strategy and still have teaching be the focus for the faculties at each school.” The board wants a nurturing aspect present at each school as well. Providing counselors for students to aid them in unusual or difficult times helps meet that need, Turner said. These people will be professionally trained for helping students deal with personal problems that affect their school life. However, as a buffer, the counselors will go through the board and

only counsel students in areas in which they specialize. Committee members also believe that by intervening with problems with students instead of just sending them to alternative school will be constructive to the students’ development as good people. “We are very interested in saving these kids instead of moving the problem to the alternative school,” said Turner. “We want to strive to get to the problem source instead of reacting to the problem.” Plans for emergencies such as getting vaccines in time of disease crises have been addressed as well. After all the planning, the co-chairs and committee members feel confident that they have constructed a framework of guidelines by which the safety of Tipton County schools can be strengthened. The committee was made up of a group of 10 people from law enforcement officials as well as people from various backgrounds in the community such as principals and nurses to parents and anyone interested in students' safety. “I was really impressed with how hard-working our committee was,” said Turner. “It's obvious that people in our community really care about our kids.”

MARTIN, Tenn. – Dr. Tommy Cates, interim director, recently was named as the executive director of the University of Tennessee at Martin Office of Extended Campus and Online Studies. Cates, who received a bachelor’s degree from UT Martin and master’s degree and doctorate from University of Memphis, previously served as director of UT Online at UT Martin since 2001. He joined the UT Martin faculty as an assistant professor of management in 1983. “Dr. Cates is wideCATES ly respected as one of the South’s pioneers in online education; he also has an impressive history of scholarship and a record of outreach and entrepreneurship that fits our extended campus mission well,” said Dr. Jerald Ogg, vice chancellor for academic affairs. “He has done an excellent job in an interim capacity, and I look forward to his continued contributions to the academic affairs leadership team.” As part of his responsibility, Cates directs all off-campus academic operations. These operations include online courses, dual-enrollment courses in high schools, non-credit courses and courses offered through the four UT Martin Centers at Selmer, Jackson, Ripley and Parsons. “This job is an opportunity to balance many operations off campus and to help the off-campus students and staff feel a part of the campus and UT as a whole. This segment of the university plays a key role to project our image of high quality and accessibility,” said Cates about ECOS and his new position.

Control blossom-end rot

It is important to maintain uniform moisture around tomato plants. This will help control blossom-end rot, a condition that makes the bottom of the tomato turn dark and hard. A low soil pH can also cause blossom-end rot. Most vegetables require a pH between 6 and 6.5. Be careful not to fertilize tomatoes too heavily with nitrogen fertilizer, which can increase the chances of blossom-end rot.

Tennessee uses a 44 item inspection sheet with a maximum of 100 points; scores of 70 and above pass inspection. Thirteen of the items are considered critical. Critical items, found out of compliance, must be corrected within 10 days. Follow-up inspections are conducted to determine compliance on critical items. Failure to correct critical violations or imminent health hazards result in closure of establishments until corrections are made. Serious or repeated violations may result in revocation of the establishmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permit. The scores are used as a tool by the state and industry to place a value on compliance to the regulations, educate the operators, and thereby encourage corrective action. Complete records of food service establishments are public records and are available for public viewing at the health department. Scores can also be found online at http://health.state.tn.us.
