Group rallies to stop the violence By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com On Saturday the scene of a Covington man’s murder became the site of rally in his honor, a rally urging the community to stop the violence. “We wanted to do something positive for the community,� said Desmond Muex, a classmate of the late Darius “Dee Dee� Heaston who was shot in Frazier Park on Friday, Aug. 19. Heaston, 20, died the next morning. “When he was killed it took a big toll on our community,� Muex said. “He got along with everybody, he was laid-back like his mom said, it took us all by surprise.� Another classmate, Alyssa Maclin Grandberry, came up with the idea to hold a rally and Muex said he helped organize the event. The group’s mission is to encourage the community to come together to put an end to violent behavior. “We don’t need to kill each other, we need to love one another,� he Desmond Muex said. “This is all about us coming together as a whole.� Marching with four dozen others, Muex said the group carried posters and chanted “Stop the violence, increase the peace� it moved from the park to Best Street, down Simonton and made its way back to the park. Along the way, people sat on porches and cheered the group on, he said. “Everyone knew what we were doing and people were giving us their support.� City officials – mayor David Gordon and Covington Police Lt. Cavat Bass – were also on-hand to speak at the rally. Muex said he believed Darius would be honored by the event. “I think it’s something he’d be proud we decided to do.� Muex said there are plans to make the rally an annual event. “We want to make it bigger and better, to show the community that someone does care.�

“We don’t need to kill each other, we need to love one another.� -

MMS students are on the ball By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Earlier this month Darren Walker, a science teacher at Munford Middle School, changed things in his classroom: instead of tables and chairs, students are now using stability balls as seats. And it’s a change that’s been welcomed. “The kids are now enthusiastic about coming to class,� Walker said. “They’re more focused.� For students, it’s fun because it’s different; for Walker, it’s about helping his students learn. “I’m using yoga balls because they promote better posture and because sitting on them makes the kids more attentive,� he said. Parents, he said, had surprisingly positive reactions to the balls. Pam Taylor, whose daughter Jennifer is in Walker’s class, said she would have loved having yoga balls as seats in school. “My daughter was such a wiggle worm in her desk; she said she always felt claustrophobic in it like she needed to stand and stretch her legs,� she said. “Jennifer is so excited about the yoga balls. There are so

many benefits in them that people don’t even realize.� Where they used to sit in plastic chairs, which allow students to easily lean back and become disengaged, they now sit atop brightlycolored rubber balls. These balls are most often used in yoga and pilates. Because students have to actively work to stay upright on the balls, they are more likely to remain engaged in the lesson and

are more likely to participate. Studies show children learn better in an environment that uses sensory input, such as making small movements to stay on the balls. Walker is currently the only teacher with a complete set of yoga balls in his classroom. He said he used his $100 Basic Education Partnership grant from the school system to purchase several balls; the rest

were purchased by Sherri Yarbro, the school health coordinator. So far, the change has been welcomed. And it’s also added another dimension to classroom discipline. “If they don’t behave, they have to go back to sitting on a chair,� he said, “and no one wants to sit in a chair anymore.�

Test drives to benefit CHS football team

By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com

BBQ Fest set for next weekend September 29th, September 30th and October 1st are the dates for this year’s Tipton County BBQ Festival and BBQ Cooking Contest. Cobb Parr Park will host a new event this year, the CX Cyclocross on Saturday. The MBN sanctioned Championship BBQ Contest will begin on Thursday, September 29th with teams bringing in their rigs and setting up to cook. Festival committee members are expecting a great turnout for this year’s event. MBN representatives, Henry and Kelly Evans, will be available to help any new teams who would like to try their hand at cooking championship BBQ. All proceeds from the event will go to Boys and Girls Club. The carnival owned by PBJ Happee Days from Marion, Arkansas will return this year, bringing even more rides than last year. The carnival will be set up on the old tennis courts at the park, with the City of Covington providing free rides from the playground area over to the tennis courts for free. Helicopter rides will also be offered for a fee from the soccer fields. Free rides to the helicopter will also be provided for festival goers who prefer not to walk. There will be bouncy rides and a petting zoo for the children also.

Always popular with the crowds, The Demolition Derby and the KenTen Truck Pull will take place in the riding arena on Friday and Saturday nights respectively at 7:30, with gates opening at 6:00. Proceeds from the Demolition Derby and the Truck Pull are given to charities chosen by the Ken-Ten membership. Prices for both events are 10.00 for adults and 5.00 for children. The Riding Club is hosting a kids’ night on Thursday with events at the riding area. Mutton Bustin’, sheep riding, and the Calf’s Throw will begin at 6:30. Music for this year’s festival will be provided by “The Generation Gap” on Thursday night, from 8:00 until 10:30 live on the stage. On Friday night “Wild Heart” will perform from 8:00 until 11:00. Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome in the team area where the bands will be performing. The Covington BBQ Cooking Contest is recognized as the oldest contest in the world. Admission to the park is free. All details, prices, pictures and more can be found on the BBQ website: www.covingtontn.com (click on the pig). Contacts are Sandra McCalla (901) 652-0555 or Linda Wilson (901) 476-7104.

Anyone interested in test driving a Ford and helping the Covington High School football program at the same time will have a unique opportunity to do so on Saturday at the Covington Heritage Day with Arts and Crafts Festival. King Cotton Ford of Covington and the Covington Gridiron Association will have a booth on the back parking lot of First Baptist Church where several cars will be available for test drives. For every test drive from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Ford Motor Company will donate $20 directly to the Covington High School football program. Anyone 18 or older with a valid drivers license is eligible. “We’ve been trying for a while to find a school to get involved in this,” said

Paul Mann, general manager at King Cotton Ford in Covington. “The dealership gets nothing out of this. It’s just something we wanted to do to boost the schools.” As much as $6,000 can be raised and donated to the football program. Lee Downing, Covington Gridiron Association president, said Ford donated approximately $5 million across the country last year through the program. “You don’t have to spend any money. It’s a no-brainer,” Downing said. “It’s not about selling cars on the spot. Its’ really about asking questions about the cars.” Mann said the Fusion, Focus and other Ford models will be available for test drives. Those interested can sign up for a specific test drive time by contacting a Covington player or coach or a CGA member.

Brighton High School deals with gun, overdose By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com According to the Brighton Police Department and Tipton County Schools officials, a Brighton High School student had a gun on campus Sept. 9. After an afternoon soccer game the student was caught with a BB gun. According to Director of Schools Buddy Bibb and Director of Pupil Services Daryl Walker, a disciplinary hearing was held last week and the student was punished. Walker said the type of punishment, as well as the student’s name, is confidential. “We had a hearing,� Walker said. “The student was punished just like any other student in that situation.� Addressing the possession of firearms, the Tipton County School hand-

book reads, “In accordance with state law, any student who brings or possesses a firearm on school property shall be expelled for a period of not less than one calendar year. The director of schools shall have the authority to modify this expulsion on a case-bycase basis.� Brighton Police Investigator Craig Pifer confirmed the incident and referred all questions to the Tipton County School Board. In an unrelated incident, school officials and Pifer confirmed that two Brighton High School students suffered an apparent drug overdose at school on Sept. 12. Walker said the incident is still under investigation and discipline will be withheld until the investigation is complete.

IN OUR VIEW: AN EDITORIAL

One good turn deserves another

Small town life affords us a sense of closeness and appreciation for one another that we should never take for granted. While Tipton County has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, that sense of community and appreciation for one another remains alive and well. Here are a mere few examples of people working together to achieve positive changes we think are noteworthy. 1) Munford Middle School teacher Darren Walker has kept up to date on recent trends in education and had an idea that he thought would help his classroom. He looked toward yoga balls as replacements for traditional seating in his classroom. With the goal of helping students improve their focus, retain good posture and to give the kids an enjoyable experience to help them learn better, Walker, with the support of the Tipton County School System, implemented the idea. We applaud his efforts in putting the proper focus on the kids and on learning. 2) Alyssa Grandberry and Desmond Muex are tired of violence and rightfully and respectfully honored the memory of Darius Heaston, whose life ended tragically and all too soon thanks to a bullet. Their rally to Stop the Violence in Frazier Park brought out about 50 people who marched and took up signs to a good cause. We hope the community heard them. Senseless violence and death have no place in our community. 3) St. Luke M.B. Church got behind an effort to help 14-year-old Ashley Ballard who suffered from brain cancer and complications that stemmed from it, and to also help 2-year-old Maliya Irby. Maliya can’t walk or talk due to a terrible condition known as Stage 1 Wilms Tumors, which are cancerous tumors of the kidneys. Additional disorders have been diagnosed and health care costs for both girls have been extraordinarily high. Led by Odessa Bernard, the benefit raised $3,200 to help the girls. 4) Home Depot proved it plans to both be a part of the community and to be a good steward of its resources when it assisted the Covington Fire Department with rebuilding the fence at its fire station. And the hardworking firefighters of Covington Fire Station 1 and Station 2 were the beneficiaries of a grill apiece thanks to the generosity of Home Depot. We’d like to say we’re proud of what our local folks have done to help each other, as anyone can see when they view the “Go, Lucy, Go!” stickers adorning vehicles showing their support for 5-year-old Lucy

SOUTHERN RAISIN’

Today is the first day of fall. We Southerners like our hot summers with the long days, boating, fishing, vacations and a host of many activities best left to the warmer months. With that said, by September we are generally ready for some relief from the scorching hot days and sweltering humidity. Folks from dry desert regions think they know what hot weather is, but I’d rather be in dry 120 degrees over 95 degrees with 90 perfect humidity any day. We are ready for a change in season. By fall the kids are settled into school, the days are getting shorter, the leaves will be turning soon, football season has kicked off to a good start, and baseball still won’t go away. I was listening to NPR JIM HARDIN late last month – yes, I know us conservatives shouldn’t be listening to NPR, but I do like the business news, bluegrass and old radio programs – to Frank Deford. He made a good case for shortening the baseball season. I like baseball, but let’s face it, most Americans do not follow baseball like they used to. By football season, we have pretty much tuned baseball out until the division playoffs and the World Series. As we approach the World Series, the weather is no longer conducive to the modern fan who often expects a temperature controlled domed stadium. Football is now really getting interesting as professional teams are vying for a playoff spot and college teams for a ranking. At the same time, basketball is getting ready Including the post-season playoffs and championship games, we have roughly five months of professional football but seven months of baseball. Basketball is too long as well at 7 ½ months, but the younger folks like the tempo and the games don’t drag on over three hours, so it keeps the fans engaged much easier. In 1984 a Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers game went eight hours and six minutes, with 25 innings over two days. That would never happen in any other sport except for chess, and we all know how exciting chess can be to

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Hospital is recommended Dear editor, I had the unpleasant experience of having food poisoning with extreme dehydration on Aug. 22. The purpose of this letter is to tell you that from the time the ambulance arrived with the very competent EMT personnel, to the emergency room staff to the care I had for the six days I was in the hospital, including the competent care Dr. Richard Guerrant provided, I was very please with the care I received from everyone responsible. I could mention name, but some that should be commended I do not know. Suffice it to say, I was pleased with the care I received at Baptist (Memorial) Hospital-Tipton and recommend the hospital to all our citizens needing medical care.

BBQ Fest to kick off next Thursday Sept. 29-Oct. 1 are the dates for this year’s Tipton County BBQ Festival and BBQ Cooking Contest. Cobb Parr Park will host a new event this year, the CX Cyclocross on Saturday. The MBN sanctioned Championship BBQ Contest will begin on Thursday, Sept. 29 with teams bringing in their rigs and setting up to cook. Festival committee members are expecting a great turnout for this year’s event. MBN representatives, Henry and Kelly Evans, will be available to help any new teams who would like to try their hand at cooking championship BBQ. All proceeds from the event will go to Boys and Girls Club. The carnival owned by PBJ Happee Days from

Marion, Ark. will return this year, bringing even more rides than last year. The carnival will be set up on the old tennis courts at the park, with the City of Covington providing free rides from the playground area over to the tennis courts for free. Helicopter rides will also be offered for a fee from the soccer fields. Always popular with the crowds, The Demolition Derby and the KenTen Truck Pull will take place in the riding arena on Friday and Saturday nights respectively at 7:30, with gates opening at 6:00. Proceeds from the Demolition Derby and the Truck Pull are given to charities chosen by the Ken-Ten membership. Prices for both events are $10 for adults and $5 for

pipe organ music. They need quick action and a shorter season. It’s time that baseball gets with the 21st Century and adapts to the new customers or be replaced by something else forever. I have felt and said this for many years now. I was glad to hear that there are others out there like myself such as Mr. Deford saying the same thing. There is a time and season for everything. A time to live, a time to die. A time to fight and a time to make peace. A time to watch baseball and a time to switch it over to football. Baseball, it’s time!

Continued from page A4 watch. Baseball is slower than it used to be. They need to place stricter time limits to pitch the ball with runners on the bases, much like the established limit placed on a football team to snap the ball. Baseball needs to wrap the season up by Labor Day and like Mr. Deford says, enlarge the playoffs. In baseball, 8 teams can make the post season. In football, 12 teams make the post season, while 16 teams go on to the post-season in basketball. More playoff opportunities would create more interest from the fans. I like baseball, my father liked it a bit more, but my grandfather loved the game. Times have changed. I’m not sure professional baseball can survive the A-D-D Millennial Generation, or as my Uncle would say N-W-E (not whooped enough), who has the attention span of a goldfish.

Since we know Jesus was a carpenter, this leads me to believe he was also a farmer that was raised in the South to do so much with so little. We had so much to do trying to free up some wagon pistons. In the South if it is stuck use coal oil. If sick or hurts use a cure all. Coal oil! So we started pouring back and forth through the block. Maybe the Rosemark boys invented recycling? Just some old memories of rednecks using their heads for more than a hat rack…Glory!

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 Bringle August 26, 1911 - September 16, 2011 Mr. James Addison Bringle of Covington, Tennessee, died on September 16, 2011. He was 100 years old. His survivors are his three daughters, Charlotte B. Wilkerson (John) of St. Charles, Missouri, Martha B. Brasfield and Elizabeth B. Ziarko, of Covington, Tennessee, five grandchildren, Lauren Baker (Grover), Katherine Wilkerson, Ben Brasfield, Sara Brasfield, and Charles Brasfield, two greatgrandsons, Josiah and Samuel Baker. He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 69 years, Rebecca (Becky) Richardson Bringle, his brother, Max (Bubba) Bringle, and son-in-law, Duke Harris Brasfield. Born on Aug. 26, 1911, Mr. Bringle was the son of Embry Stanley and Charlotte Addison Bringle of Tipton County, Tennessee. He graduated from Byars-Hall High School in 1930. He, his father, and brother operated E.S. Bringle & Sons, a cotton-ginning and seedbuying business. In 1940, he became a rural mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service and delivered mail in the western part of Tipton County. During his employment as a mail carrier, he continued to work at the cotton gin and later bought and sold soybeans with a business partner. In 1965, he became postmaster of the Covington, Tennessee post office. In 1974, he was appointed the Clerk & Master of the Chancery Court of Tipton County, Tennessee, and finally retired on Aug. 31, 1986. He loved sports, and played basketball and football until an injury at the age of 14 left him crippled. He continued his participation in sports as a manager of the Byars-Hall football team. He was a charter member of the Byars-Hall Booster Club. He was one of several community leaders who were instrumental in changing a simple piece of land into the Covington athletic field, now the home football field of the Covington Chargers. These men purchased the land, laid the irrigation/drainage system, planted hedges, built fences, and constructed permanent seating, all without taxpayer money. He was an active member of the Parent-Teacher Association at Byars-Hall High School and served as its membership chairman for several years. During his tenure, he doubled the enrollment of the association and encouraged parent participation with the school and its programs. Because of his hard work, he received a lifetime membership, the highest honor possible in the association. He was a chapter chairman of the American Red Cross in Tipton County. For many years, he spearheaded the blood drives for the Red Cross Bloodmobile and made every effort to insure that the county reached its quota so that the citizens of Tipton County who became ill could receive blood, paying only the handling costs. He remained interested in the cotton industry and was a director of Mid-South Cotton Growers Association for 17 years. He was a member of the Board of Directors of First State Bank and a member of the board of the Covington-Tipton County Library. He supported

Habitat for Humanity by donating land upon which two houses have been built. He was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church of Covington, Tennessee. He served as president of the Baptist Brotherhood and began a Wednesday night visitation program. Mr. Bringle was known as a person who respected and loved people as individuals, often offering an encouraging word or anonymously giving money to those in need. Visitation was held Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011, at the First Baptist Church of Covington, Tennessee, from 12:30 p.m. until 2 p.m. At 2 p.m., the memorial service was conducted, with Rev.

Hi everyone. Praise the Lord, he answered our prayers. The rain on Monday gave us the break we’ve all been waiting on. I even heard the birds singing when I got up. It arrived at a very good time. Now the fall leaves will have an incentive to give us their best performance this fall. I can’t wait. Sometime in the future, whenever the leaves do begin to change, Charlie and I plan to travel to Branson, Mo. It’s so pretty to travel at that time of the year. I would like to thank Mr. Angus Grey from McDonalds for a wonderful new cup he gave me last week. I Love it Angus and Thank You!. Charlie and I seem to be going to funerals a lot these days. Our most recent was Trooper Ricky Fletcher, retired from the Highway Patrol. Our families go way back.

Happy Fall y'all! At least it will be on Friday and I will be glad to see this hot summer leave 2011! We got two and a half inches of rain Sunday night, the power was off and it was nice! The crops should be made now, although open cotton will have to dry out and whiten back up. We still have one field of corn that's not ready, but when we realized it was replanted a month after all the rest was planted, we backed off trying for a few days! I enjoyed our Ladies Retreat at Paris Landing this past weekend. The weather was gorgeous and we had a view of the lake out our french doors. It was cool enough to turn the fireplace on but it wasn't allowed until October. Missed it by a few days! We had a great speaker in Kristen Roberson of Jackson, who went to dinner with us in town Saturday night. We did crafts both nights. We constructed houses out of scrapbook paper, wooden sticks, clay, tape and rub-

Great weekend with the women and all of us thank Heather Keith for getting it all together! Please keep Kenneth Mason and his family in your prayers; he's home from the hospital, spending time with his family. He has fought hard. Happy Birthday this week to Preston Stanley on Sept. 17, to Hope Collins on the 20th, to Shirley Cook on the 21st, to Michelle Laxton, Brandon Matlock and Lisa Pinner on the 22nd, to Luke McMahan on the 23rd and to Kathy McMahan on the 24th!

We wish them the very best. Staff and service recipients went to Wal-Mart to work on money management. Plus, we went to the Living Waters bookstore in Millington to look around. The center got some new chairs donated to the center. We appreciate them very much. The center was closed on Sept. 5, but reopended on Sept. 6. Staff and service recipients celebrated Mary Marcy's birthday with cupcakes and cake, which was provided by her mother. Staff and service recipients have been doing a devotion in the front room, Monday through Friday. Scott's mother came to do tap dancing lessons with the service recipients. Everybody did real good. They are practicing for the Christmas holidays. The Bus Club went to Tractor Supply, Big Lots and Dollar Tree to look around and purchase some items and learn about money management. Afterward we went to the car dealerships to look at the cars and trucks, then we went out to eat at IHOP in Millington. Everybody had a wonderful time. Congratulations to Brenda Tipton and Sally Chamberlain on their new jobs at McDonald's. We are very proud of them. Several of the service recipients went on vacations Labor Day weekend. We got a donation of two movies and some towels from Sam's aunt. We appreciate them very much. We would like to thank Mrs. Columbus for coming out to the center to work on the schoolhouses with the service recipients for crafts last Wednesday. Last Friday the Open

CIAA unfurls history

By Echo Day eday@covingtonleader.com

On Friday, every student at Covington Integrated Arts Academy was gathered in front of the school’s roundabout; it’s a place usually reserved for morning drop-offs and afternoon pick-ups, but that afternoon it was the place where 600 students watched history unfurl. “This is a flag that’s never flown before, but it will fly over Covington Integrated Arts Academy,” announced principal Sara Gangaware. The announcement followed a student-led assembly commemorating Constitution Day, a day observing the 224th anniversary of the document’s ratification. In the school’s signature style, students integrated the arts into their performances: singing a medley of patriotic songs, wearing hand-crafted patriotic headwear, playing patriotic tunes with the school’s band. The Tipton County S.W.A.T. team was also on-hand to post the flag donated by famed Covington patriot Ben Baker while the student body saluted. Some students held their hands over their hearts, clumsy smiles on their faces. Gangaware said the event was part of a patriotic unit for students that also included the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. “We wanted to do something for 9/11, but so much was already going on,” she said. “The next thing up was this, so we went for it; they’re learning about the Constitution.” It was what Gangaware called a teachable moment. “Everyone participated in learning - that’s what it’s all about.”

'I' On the Ball It annoys me when people talk about “how time flies.” I always say to myself, “Self, doesn't that person understand that time progresses at the same rate all Je! Ireland the time, everySports Editor day?” Unfortunately, as I get older, I find myself doing the same things that annoy me. I said all that to say this: I can't believe we're already halfway through the high school football regular season. It seems like just yesterday I was working on our football special section. And since we're at the midway point of the season, I thought this would be an excellent time to unveil the first annual Jeff Ireland Leader Midseason Football Awards. The JILMFAs, if you will. I'm not dead set on the name just yet, but you get the idea. Here we go … Toughest break Covington senior Carlos Williams was on his way to having an amazing season before it was derailed with an injury in his second game. On the first play from scrimmage of the season he intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown. He scored six times in those two games. It would have been nice to see what kind of numbers he would have put up over a whole season. MVP It seems pretty clear to me that Brighton senior receiver Ricky Foster is the best player in the county. The touchdown catch he made in the Cardinals' win over Covington was the best individual play I've seen so far this year. I have yet to see a defensive back that can match his athleticism.

Second-half surge

Covington remains perfect in district play By STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com Covington’s 28-7 District 13-AA win over the Crockett County Cavaliers Friday in Alamo had a surreal nature to it from the outset. A full moon rode high behind the clouds that threatened rain and the crowd seemed subdued and fretful. So did both teams. After CHS took a 7-0 first quarter lead on a 65-yard third-down gallop by Johnston White for the first of his three touchdowns of the night, the Charger offense went into hibernation, managing only seven more plays from scrimmage in the half. The Cavaliers mounted an unbelievable 24-play scoring drive spanning the first and second quarters, during

which they lost 40 yards on penalties, seven yards on a quarterback sack and escaped from a third and 32. Jonathan Jurnette scored on a two-yard run for the Cavaliers. Crockett ended the third Charger possession of the half with a fumble recovery and mounted a 17-play drive that came up empty to go to the locker room tied at 7-7. “We came out flat,” said Charger head man Marty Wheeler. “After a good week of practice we did not bounce back after an emotional game. It was a different atmosphere. We were not coachable in the first half.” Adjustments were made at the half on both sides of the ball, but there was no panic, according to Wheeler. “Some of our seniors stepped up at halftime and took ownership,”

Wheeler said. “It was good to see.” The second half started with a bang. Covington’s Dedric Smith returned the opening kick off 44 yards to the Crocket 16, and on the ensuing play Colliar Robinson dragged two or three would-be tacklers into the end zone to put the Chargers up to stay. Josh Watts’ extra point was perfect, as he was all night, and CHS led 14-7. A seven-play drive later in the third quarter found Covington in the end zone again on a 15-yard run from White for a 21-7 lead. An energized Charger defense, led by Jadarius Temple’s two sacks and great play from Dakota Phillips, stymied the Cavaliers for the remainder of the game.

Cards avenge loss

Big nights from Stewart, Foster, Dickerson propel Brighton past JNS By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com

Munford falls in Newbern By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Dyer County had a little too much firepower for Munford Friday night in Newbern. Choctaw quarterback Dylan Dye threw for 258 yards and three scores as Dyer County handed the Cougars their first District 13-AAA loss, 44-19. Midway through the second quarter, Stephen Stewart hooked up with Cedric Williams on a 12-yard touchdown pass to trim Dyer County's lead to 14-7. After falling behind 24-10 at the half, Munford (1-4 overall, 1-1 district) cut

the lead to 11 early in the third quarter on Tyler Gray's second field goal of the game, but Dyer County (4-1, 2-0) pulled away with three touchdowns, the third of which came on a 64-yard touchdown run by Ky Wilson that pushed the lead to 37-19. “Not really,” Munford coach Matt Saunders said when asked if his team played well. “We'd been getting better week by week … A lot of the credit goes to Dyer County. They executed their offense well, but I don't think we executed. I don't think we did a good job preparing for this game.” Williams had a big game for SEE MHS, PAGE B2

Before even leaving the field after Brighton's win over Covington two weeks ago, Cardinal coach Will Wolfe and his players started talking about their plans for getting revenge against Jackson North Side the following week. Friday night in Jackson the Cardinals executed those plans perfectly. Brighton scored 28 second-half unanswered points en route to a 42-14 District 13-AAA win, avenging a 30-point home loss to the Indians last season. “We talked about it (revenge) for sure,” Wolfe said. “We just didn't want what happened last year to happen again.” The Indians (1-4 overall, 0-2 district) hung with Brighton (3-1, 1-0) for a while. After recovering an onside kick late in the first quarter, Brighton drove to the North Side 7 and looked poised to go up 21-7. But Thad Parks scooped up a fumbled exchange and returned it 88 yards to tie the score at 14-14. That's where the score stayed until the Cardinals' offense kicked it into high gear in the second half. Antonio Dickerson and Greg Starks scored on short runs in the third quar-

ter to push the lead to 28-14. A one-yard touchdown run by Ricky Foster and a 13-yarder by Dickerson, his third touchdown of the game, followed in the fourth. Brighton quarterback Brady Stewart had another big game. After throwing two interceptions in the first half, he settled down and finished with 315 yards on 21-of-26 passing. “We had two interceptions in the first half that really cost us,” Wolfe said. “The kids rallied back and played real good in the second half … Brady made some real strides. He threw the ball 26 times and I think he only made one bad read.” Stewart's favorite target once again was Foster, who finished with nine receptions for 160 yards. Artez Harris also had a big night with two catches for 83 yards. Dickerson led Brighton's rushing attack, which produced a season-high 247 yards, with 122 yards on six carries. Starks, who scored Brighton's second touchdown on a seven-yard run, finished with 84 rushing yards. Adam Craig led North Side with 109 passing yards and 96 on the ground. Brighton steps out of district play this Friday in a home game against Millington.

SOCCER ROUNDUP

Lady Cards remain undefeated; CHS ties Dyersburg By JEFF IRELAND, STEVE HOLT sports@covingtonleader.com The Brighton Lady Cardinals kept their undefeated record intact with a Tuesday win over Craigmont and a victory last week over Wooddale. Playing in Memphis against Craigmont, Brighton (7-0-1) won 8-0. Courtney Carpenter led the way with four goals and an assist. Mo Whitefoot added two assists and Shady Ross and Alex Lowe each had one. Kelsi Williams, Amanda McKinley, Emily Kirk and Lowe each added goals. Last Thursday at May Complex against Wooddale, the Lady Cardinals

B1 Sports.indd 1

scored four times in the first half to win 4-0. Codie Davis got the scoring started on an assist from Carpenter. Williams added one goal and Whitefoot had two, one on an assist from Williams. Amy Janes, Amanda McKinley and Aleah Williams combined in goal to get the shutout. Brighton will host Munford today at 6:30 p.m. in a key district game. Bartlett visits Brighton on Monday before the Lady Cardinals travel to Covington on Tuesday. “We have a big game Thursday against Munford,” Brighton coach Sharri Garrett said. “We have been

working on finishing the ball and first touches. If we can control the speed of play the way we have been doing the second half the whole game, we shouldn't have a problem Thursday. Overall, I think our speed and endurance should show for a victory.” With just a couple of weeks remaining in the season, it appears that the CHS Lady Chargers soccer team will head to the playoffs as the second-seeded team in the region behind Dyersburg, which CHS tied this week, 1-1, at Dyersburg. “It was the best hustle and team play we have had all year against the No. 1 team (Dyersburg) in the region for the past 5 years,” said CHS head

coach Robert Luttrell. “The defense played great. Junior captain Sarah Anne Franklin really stepped up her game." After a scoreless first half, CHS took the lead 10 minutes into the second on a 20-yard shot from Gabby Glenn that was assisted by Whitney Wallace. The Lady Trojans tied the game with eight minutes left in the match. There is no overtime in regular season high school soccer. CHS dropped a district match at home to Obion County 3-1 on Sept. 13. Glenn scored the lone goal for Covington in the first half. The Lady Chargers will travel to McKenzie for a district match today.

Wolves take down TRA in DII-A action Friday Late Rosemark rally falls short By JEFF IRELAND jireland@covingtonleader.com Tipton-Rosemark Academy flirted with picking up its first win of the season Friday night in Rossville. But a costly turnover and a strong finish by the Wolves resulted in a 35-14 Rossville win. Down 28-14 early in the fourth quarter, TRA was driving when a fumbled ended the possession. Rossville (1-3 overall, 1-2 league) tacked on a late touchdown to secure its first DII-A-West win of the season. TRA fell to 0-4 and 0-2. “That was a tough loss,” said TRA head coach Dodd Gengenbach. “That (fumble) kind of took the wind out of our sails. The kids played hard, though. We’re still having some issues with turnovers at inopportune times, but the kids kept fighting.” Rossville appeared to be pulling away when quarterback Weston Locastro scored on a 10-yard run with 7:36 left in the third quarter to push the lead to 28-6. But Rosemark answered less than than three minutes later when quar-

The Tribe 8-year-old competitive baseball team is holding tryouts Oct. 15 at 2 p.m. at Centennial Park in Munford. For more information contact Bobby Farrell (356-1665), Lisa Farrell (258-0294) or Shawn Smith (359-9211).

terback Keith Hamlin scored on a four-yard run and then threw to Logan Stewart for the two-point conversion. The game clincher came in the final minutes of the fourth quarter on a 26-yard touchdown run by Brad Leininger. A two-yard touchdown run by Austin Rushing with 11:19 left cut Rossville’s lead to 7-6. A three-yard touchdown run by Leininger midway through the second quarter gave Rossville a 13-6 halftime lead. Hamlin had a solid all-round game for TRA, finishing with 65 yards passing, 55 receiving and 46 rushing. Freshman Logan Stewart saw action at quarterback and completed 6 of 17 passes for 66 yards. He also caught two passes for 62 yards. The Rebels hit the road again Friday night with a league game in Cordova against First Assembly Christian School. “We’re going to be the underdog,” Gengenbach said. “We’ll have to take some chances and see if we can make things happen.”

The Munford High School Homerun Booster Club is hosting its third annual golf scramble Sept. 24 at Forest Hills Golf Course. For more information contact Wayne Bouler at tiptonlc@bigriver.net.

just before the end of the third period, the Chargers put the game away with a 16-play drive for the final score. Carlos Burton, who Wheeler tabbed as an offensive star for his blocking all night, nabbed a pass to set CHS up first and goal at the CCHS 4 before White plowed in from six yards out for the final tally.

MHS Alumni Night for Munford football players and coaches will be held at the Oct. 14 home game. Info is needed from former players and coaches. E-mail name and years of service to danaecker@ bigriver.net, or call 205454-1494. Oct. 11 is the deadline.

Covington professional boxer Chris Rudd (11-0, 7 KO) recently signed with Let’s Rumble Promotions of St. Louis. Pictured are, from left, Chuck Glover, Rudd, Steve Smith (promoter) and coach Jimmy Glover. Rudd, a former member of the Covington Boxing Club, is expected to fight again in late September. The Covington Boxing Club, which practices Monday through Thursday at 5 p.m. at the Covington Senior Citizens Center, is accepting new boxers.

The Chargers held Crockett County (1-4 overall, 1-2 district) to 174 yards of offense. CHS (4-1, 2-0) finished with 387 yards of offense, rushing 44 times for 369 yards. White rushed for 239 yards and Robinson added 107. Covington is off Friday before hosting district foe Gibson County on Sept. 30 for homecoming.

Continued from B1 Munford. He caught nine passes for 77 yards and rushed for 120 more on 18 carries. Stewart was 16-for-33 passing for 154 yards. Hunter Harden relieved Stewart down the stretch and completed 4 of 7 passes for 114 yards, but each quarterback threw one interception. Munford’s second touchdown of the game came on a 14-yard run by Stewart.

Dyer County’s final score came on a 36-yard touchdown catch by Thaddeous Medford, who also rushed for 100 yards and two scores. Despite the loss, Munford is in third place in the five-team district, one game behind first place Dyer County and a half game behind Brighton. After hosting Memphis Northside this Friday in a non-district game, the Cougars play

Continued from B1 Best 1-win team After watching Munford play several times this year, it’s hard to understand how they have won just one game. Their schedule – Covington, Horn Lake, Millington, Dyer County – has been brutal, but they’re still in the thick of the playoff race. Don’t be surprised to see the Cougars reel off some wins down the stretch. Best DP impersonation Brighton football fans had to be wondering how the Cardinals’ passhappy offense would fare with the graduation of quarterback Danny Potter. It’s done just fine in the hands of junior Brady Stewart, who has stepped in and kept Brighton’s spread offense humming. At the end of the year he figures to be

among West Tennessee’s leaders in passing yardage.

#24 RB/DB Carlos Burton

Pluckiest team I try to remain basically impartial when covering games, but I find myself really rooting for Tipton-Rosemark Academy to pick up a win. They were edged by Bishop Byrne two weeks ago and had their chances last week against Rossville, but came up short again. With some very strong teams left on the schedule, they may not get a win this year, but I give them credit for hanging in there despite being outmanned every Friday.

COMMENTARY

Getting by By RICK HUFFMAN Special to The Leader When I was attending Freed Hardeman, one semester my roommate was a brilliant student from California. He had a photographic memory and could remember verbatim what he heard in a class lecture. Ability, he was without equal. Study, he did not have to. He could cram the night before a big test and ace it every time. He was taking a biology course and there was a lab test he had to take. He had a 100% average in the class. He had calculated that he could make a zero on the lab test and still ace the course. So, what did he do? He did not look at a note, crack the book or study a lick. The day of the test, he went to every station where a specimen was on display with the test questions in his hand. He did not even try to answer one question but when the test period was over, he wrote his name on the paper and turned in his blank test paper. Obviously he failed the test but he did receive an “A” for the class. This young man was studying to be a doctor. We went our separate ways and I lost track of him but I have often wondered if he did become a physician. Let’s suppose he did. Let’s suppose he became a heart surgeon and you needed heart surgery. Would you want him operating on you? I would not! Why? Because as a student he had a “just getby” attitude. All he was interested in was doing just enough to accomplish what he wanted. As a physician,

would he have that same attitude? Suppose he was attaching a bypass into your heart. If he thought three stitches was sufficient for it to hold, would he stop with the three stitches or would he take every precaution and use more stitches to be certain there was no possibility the bypass would fail? If prior performance is any indication, he would not take any extra effort. He would be content to do the least he thought would take care of the situation instead of everything in his power to insure that the operation was successful. Spiritually speaking, many of us are content, if not happy, to just get by. We want to do as little as we can to get by. We sit on the back pew. We never participate in service, teach a class, clean the building, answer a question in class or volunteer for any church work. We may attend once a week and that only on Sunday morning and even then we skip Sunday school. We use any and every excuse not to come to church from a slight headache to a sporting event to company came in to having to prepare a Sunday meal to spending quality time with my family (as if attending church is not) to being tired to just doing something for myself to going shopping to sleeping in because this is the only day I can. We leave the waitress a bigger tip at that fancy restaurant on Saturday night than we give to the Lord on Sunday. Pray, we do not have to because everything is going well with me.

more important things to see, learn and do. If we do attend church, we are content to let others do the work. We consider worship a spectator sport for our entertainment. Heaven forbid should the preacher preach on something I’m doing wrong or even worse something I should be doing. We are simply along for the ride, riding on the coattails of others. This is totally contrary to what our Savior taught. Repeatedly in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus hammered home the point that the Christian is to do more than he has to, more than is expected or required. There is no glory in doing what we must. He told His followers to go the second mile. Matt 5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. A Christian will not respond in the customary or expected way but in a way that shows he is the Lord’s and the Lord is his. Matt 5: 38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. A Christian will not just love and do good to those who love and do good to him. Matt 5: 43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. As Christians we will be a cut above the rest. Matt 5: 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Jesus told a parable about

ten virgins. Five were just interested in getting by. They carried enough oil to get by under ordinary circumstances, but when circumstances were out of the ordinary and the groom delayed his coming, they realized too late the folly of just trying to get by. Faced with the prospects of running out of oil, they were forced to go into town to buy more. While away, the groom came and they were excluded from the feast. Only the five who had gone the second mile in being prepared and had taken more oil than necessary were ready when the groom came. The groom represents the Lord. The virgins represent you and me. Just as some of the virgins took extra effort to be prepared, some of us will do what we can to be prepared. However, some of us are like the foolish virgins, just getting by, hoping we have done enough, but not willing to take the extra effort to be sure until it’s too late. Being saved is not effortless like rolling down a hill. True, we are saved by grace, but not by grace only. We must work (be obedient to His will). Paul admonished, “… work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”. (Php. 2;12) If the righteous are barely saved, how about us who are just getting by? 1Pe 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Why will we gamble when our soul is at stake? Mr 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Rick Huffman is an elder at Gilt Edge Church of Christ.

What is freedom (part one)? By CAREY KINSOLVING KidsTalkAboutGod.org

"In some places without freedom, girls aren't allowed to go to school," says Haley, age 8. "The only people I can think of who would like that are the boys! Boys in our class torture us!" One time I asked a girl about the same age as Haley why God created boys. "So you could pester them. I love pestering boys," she replied with a gleam in her eye that could only come from being truly skilled at her craft. While women who can't attend school probably feel enslaved, others, like Erin, 6, define freedom as "being out of school on weekends and holidays." If Caroline, 5, had her way, teachers could take a permanent holiday because she defines freedom as "playing all the time and eating what you want." Gee, I wonder how long someone could survive on pizza, ice cream and chocolate cake? When America's founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence, they proclaimed that certain rights were inalienable. In other words, they believed these God-given rights superseded all government decrees. These non-negotiable rights include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. "It's something when George Washington and his men fought for you to be able to do what you want," says Spencer, 7. "Like if someone told you to go to a certain church, you don't have to go.” Many Christian colonists came to America to escape religious persecution. Some kept running after they arrived. Roger Williams, a Baptist minister, fled Massachusetts in the dead of winter and settled Rhode Island. The state constitution he established provided a haven for all religious dissenters and a model for the framers of the U.S. Constitution. The idea of inalienable rights given by God permeates the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. The framers realized that a relationship with God is a matter of the conscience and heart, which no laws can coerce.

JESUS LOVES ME

"Freedom is having the right of speech," says Laiton, 9. Yes, Laiton, the First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the right to free speech, the right to assemble and freedom from the control of a state religion. When Jewish rulers forbade the apostles Peter and John to speak or teach in the name of Jesus, Peter and John said: "Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard." (Acts 4:19-20) "God tries to give everyone a big life of freedom," says Cody, 7. "We have freedom because God is the Holy One. God gave his only begotten Son to die on the cross." Jesus submitted to unjust charges, beatings and crucifixion to bear our sins. After three days in the grave, he broke death's grip forever for himself and for all who believe in him. Living in a free country means very little if you're enslaved by

substance abuse, lust, jealousy, anger, bitterness or guilt. Actually, the wonderful political freedoms we have in America are like a dim shadow compared to the true freedom Jesus offers. Paradoxically, spiritual freedom comes through declaring dependence not independence. Think about this: True freedom begins by believing in Jesus Christ and totally depending on him as your liberator from spiritual death. Only then can you break the old patterns of enslavement and experience the true freedom of his abundant life. Memorize this truth: "Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free." (Galatians 5:1) Ask this question: Are you living in spiritual freedom or slavery?

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

After reevaluating, changes in store for faith pages By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Newspapers, as we once knew them, are dying. No longer can publishers print every word of news, every photo submitted, every community event, every church listed in the directory. But this is a good thing. It forces us to reevaluate our priorities, the importance of the news we're printing and the wants and needs of our readers. The same can be said for churches: they're not attended as often these days and many do not bring in as much revenue as they once did. When this happens, a church, much like a business,

must do some reevaluating; it's important to stay focused on the issues and activities that are important to its people while still working hard to reach others. Along the same vein, because we want to be relevant and read and help you in your mission, we have recently reevaluated our faith pages and have made some changes. The church directory, for instance, will now only be published in the first issue of each month and we have decided to lay the Church of the Week feature to rest indefinitely. The church directory is an important vehicle which we hope brings new people to your

church, but we're hoping for more effective ways in which to publicize your parish life and aid in recruitment. We now have a team of contributors in place who will write commentary and we are accepting photos and information about your youth groups, outreach, ministries and church events. We want to fill these pages with happiness, with fellowship, with the reasons you love your church and your faith. We know that here in the Bible Belt church activities are as much a part of your life as ball games and barbecue and we want our newspaper

to reflect this. We invite you to send in your submissions (you can email them to news@ covingtonleader.com) and follow along as our faith pages begin to evolve from static content to pages that mirror the way you live your life: not just in words but also through action. This is not how we've traditionally approached these pages, but after some reflection we believe it's best to move forward, to focus our efforts on what's important, to focus on the life being lived in churches all over the county, because that's what it's all about.

SEPT. 30 & OCT. 1 Friday 8am - 6pm Saturday 8am-5pm

The Civil War in Tipton County By RUSSELL BAILEY Tipton County Historian As early as Sept. 6, Gen. L. Polk ordered the construction of fortifications at Columbus, Ky. John Green Hall, a Covington Mayor and editor of the Tipton Record recalled “the labor performed day after day, under the burning rays of a… September sun…We dug trenches, reared redoubts and erected batteries.” On Sept. 10, 1861, Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston was appointed Commander of the Western Armies of the Confederacy. That same day Gen. Jeff Thompson’s Missourians skirmished with Federal cavalry and gunboats at Lucas Bend, Mo., six miles north of Columbus, Ky. The 4th and 9th Tennessee Infantry Regiments, including Tipton’s volunteers, were ordered to arms. The 4thTennessee marched to the skirmish but arrived after the fighting. The Confederates captured a handful of prisoners but suffered the loss of several wounded. The 4th Tennessee camped that night and took the steamer Admiral back to Columbus on the 11th. A wounded Confederates had his leg amputated in the camp of the 9th Tennessee. Three volunteers of the “Tipton Rifles” 4th Infantry, died of measles in the hospital at Columbus in September: James McCraw, age 28, on the 14th. James Knox Polk Harrison, age 22, on the 20th. William Wilkins Jr., age 22, on the 22d. (Tipton’s first War casualty was Sergeant John Daniel Calhoun of Co.

Thomas Logwood’s 6th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion probed the Union lines north and east of Columbus engaging enemy cavalry and infantry for the first time. Major Charles Hill of Tabernacle commanded his company under Captain John U. Green, and those from Haywood and Hardeman, in skirmishes on the 15th and 22d. On the 22d, soldiers from Tipton fought the Federals 12 miles north of Columbus near Elliot’s Mills and Mayfield Creek. Union pickets fired on the troopers of Major Hill who then ordered his men to charge “which was done in gallant style.” A Memphis newspaper reported: “Five Yankee rascals paid the forfeit of their lives for their temerity..on Mayfield Creek… Mr. Charles Claiborne, youngest of the battalion of Hill’s Cavalry was the first to kill a Yankee. His gallant conduct was commended by his superior officers…Mr. John Covington of the same company had his horse shot and he killed the man that shot his horse; Buck Cockrill killed the Federal who shot at him and missed.” During Sept. 13-18th, Confederates moved toward Paducah. Cheatham’s Brigade marched to Mayfield while Col. William Stephens’ Brigade took the train south to the state the night of the 13th. A soldier of the 9th Infantry recalled the expedition: “With the heavens for our covering we slumbered sweetly until the harsh notes of the drum

aroused us to respond to the call of our names on the morning of the 14th… owing to the scarcity of wagons, we did not get off until the morning of the 15th…we marched to Fulton, Ky., 8 miles further up the State line in an easterly direction…the day was warm the trip was quite pleasant, for in that portion of Ky. the people were as warmly engaged in the cause of the South as they were in Tennessee…on the road we found watermelons, buttermilk, apples, etc… brought there by to give to the soldiers and when we reached Fulton, there were many citizens gathered around, both ladies and gentlemen to give us a warm reception… on the evening of the 17th just as the shades of night were closing upon us we left Fulton and on the 18th at 12 o’clock we reached Columbus.”
