WALKER MURDERS

Officials, public discuss future I-69 By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com On Tuesday evening, a public meeting was held at the Chamber Center on Covington’s Court Square to discuss the Interstate 69 project. Representatives from Tennessee Department of Transportation as well as from Palmer Engineering provided information about the project while summarizing the project’s design as it relates to Tipton County citizens. Issues were particularly discussed with respect to citizens who will be directly affected by the construction of I-69 by regarding relocation assistance procedures and a right-of-way study. The overall goal for I-69 is to improve both international and interstate travel of freight and people. By doing this, the state government hopes to enhance outlying and connecting local transportation systems and facilitate economic growth and development. TDOT reported that some existing facilities will be upgraded and will be used as I-69, directly connecting urban areas along the corridor. The I-69 Corridor Project as a whole is separated into different sections. The area discussed on Tuesday night was Section 5 which will run from Leigh’s Chapel Road at Highway 51 to Highway 59 at the area of Dawson Road and Clowes Road. The TDOT project manager of Section 5, Steve Chipman, explained the project’s overall design. The proposed road will consist of two travel lanes in each direction divided by a median. Bride and Leigh’s Chapel Road will bridge over I-69 while dual bridges will be constructed over Ervin Lane. An interchange will be constructed SEE DESIGN, PAGE A3

HOOPS AND HOPE

Grizzlies, Kroger support Relay for Life event By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com With less than two months before the big event, Relay for Life of Tipton County is kicking its fundraising into high-gear. Walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer when the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Tipton County gets underway with teams of residents gathering at CobbParr Park at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 6. Relay for Life events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at the park with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their campsites during Relay. The annual event brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups, people from all walks of life aimed at furthering the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping them get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. “Relay is a unique opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember those we’ve lost and fight back against the disease,” said event chair Heather Ziegler, whose son Roman battled Hodgkins Lymphoma. “Many of the participants are cancer survivors, which serves as a reminder that Tipton County is not immune to this disease.

‘I just didn’t stop’ New details revealed in Walker murders

By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com

isturbing new details regarding the murder of an elderly couple were released in court March 3 during a transfer hearing for confessed killer Jacob “Paco” Brown. Court proceedings to determine Brown’s eligibility to be tried as an adult revealed not only that the 16-year-old is mentally competent to stand trial but also the events surrounding the deaths of James and Bertha Walker. According to testimony from Tennessee Bureau of Investigations Special Agent Mark Reynolds, Brown initially claimed no involvement in the gruesome double murder. However, once he was informed the TBI could possibly collect forensic evidence from a hotel room in which Brown was staying, he changed his statement. “We discussed forensics,” Reynolds said. “He dropped his head and his whole body language. I told him, ‘It’s going to be okay,’ and he said, ‘It’s not going to be okay; I did this.’” Reading Brown’s statement, Reynolds testified Brown said he’d left Munford High School during lunch, walking past Centennial Park, Helen Crigger Cemetery on Beaver, to the skate park near Poplar Park and then to Wylie Drive, the home of both the Walker and Locke families. Brown told Reynolds he sat outside the home of his friend Scott Locke – located directly across the street from the Walkers – for awhile, then asked to use the bathroom at the Walker residence. James Walker allegedly asked Brown if he was locked out of the house, Reynolds said, and Brown became angry.

BOOKED Though he will be tried as an adult, Jacob “Paco” Brown, 16, will be housed in a facility in Shelby County specialized in caring for juveniles whose cases have been transferred to circuit court.

Regarding class rank:Semester averages are recorded on the students’ transcripts as

numerical grades. When calculating the students’ GPAs for ranking purposes these numerical grades are translated into quality points using a four (4.0) scale. Weighted grades of transfer students will be recalculated on a non-weighted 4.0 grade scale. In calculating the official rank in class, which is computed at the end of the seventh semester in high school, the following policy below will be followed: 1. The GPA will be computed on a semester basis or when one-half unit of credit has been earned. This computation will include semester grades for all courses taken. 2. The students receiving the three highest honors must have been enrolled in the Tipton County School system by the first semester of the sophomore year and must have completed five consecutive semesters in the Tipton County School System before January of the senior year. 3. The students receiving the three highest honors must have completed or be scheduled to complete the core curriculum outlined below. English: college prep 1, 2, 3 and college prep English 4 or advanced placement English 4 or English 4 dual enrollment — 4 credits; Algebra I and two

upper-level math courses — 3 credits; Physical science, or agriscience and Biology 1 and one upper level science — 3 credits; World history and college prep US history or advanced placement US history or US history dual enrollment and economics (one semester) and US government or advanced placement US government (one semester) — 3 credits; Wellness — 1 credit; Total — 14 credits. 4. The students having the highest GPA after seven semesters is designated the valedictorian and assigned a rank of no. 1. The student with the second highest GPA is designated the salutatorian and assigned a rank of no. 2. The student with the third highest GPA is named historian and assigned a rank of no. 3. In the event of a tie, ACT scores is used to determine rank. It a tie still exits, the second tie-breaker is the numerical average of the above courses. In the areas of math and science, the first three courses taken are factored into the tie-

breaker GPA. Should a tie still exist, co-honor positions are named.5. The next highest rankings for other students begins with the next

BROWN

Continued from Page A1 It was then that Brown walked back to the Locke residence, hid an aluminum bat under his coat and returned to the Walker residence. “I didn’t say anything to him, I just hit him,” Reynolds read, his testimony met with sobs and muffled cries from members of both of the Walker and Brown families. “I hit him on the forehead and he didn’t fall, so I kept hitting him until he fell face down.” In his statement, Brown told Reynolds Bertha Walker was screaming as he hit her with the bat. “I just didn’t stop. I didn’t say anything while I was hitting them,” Reynolds continued. “I didn’t stop until they weren’t moving anymore.” As Brown’s father wiped the tears from his face and quieted his sobs, Reynolds said James Walker was found face down in the living room; his wife of 61 years found lying on her back in the dining room. Nosy neighbors Testimony from Scott Locke revealed he and Brown had previously had conversations about Locke’s “nosy neighbors,” to which Brown reportedly replied, “Let’s kill them.” Locke said he thought it was a joke. “I took it as a joke,” he said. “It’s always been his demeanor to joke like that.” But Locke found out it wasn’t a joke. He testified that at approximately 2:20 p.m., Brown sent a text message that reportedly said, “You

wanted your nosy neighbors dead, right?” Later that afternoon, Locke said, Brown told him, “It’s done.” “He said he got them with a bat,” Locke said. He also testified the Walkers were not the “nosy neighbors” of which he’d been speaking. Testimony also revealed the two teens, along with Brown’s younger brother Lucas and 18-year-old Zac Douglas went to a friend’s house in Frayser before Locke’s father Randy rented two hotel rooms at the Admirality Inn and Suites in Millington for the evening. Scott Locke testified the group did not feel safe after the Walkers, who’d lived in their Wylie Drive home since 1958 and were lifetime neighbors to the Locke family, had been found murdered. Randy Locke and Brown’s mother Lisa Chrisman shared one room while Scott Locke and the Brown brothers shared an adjacent room. It was there that Reynolds and other law enforcement officers caught up with them on Jan. 19, minutes after the teens had finished smoking marijuana. Tried as an adult Last month, during his first appearance in Tipton County Juvenile Court, it was learned Brown had admitted to Reynolds he’d brutally beaten the couple.

requirements. A mental evaluation reports Brown could benefit from hospitalization, but it wasn’t necessary. “He indicated seeing hallucinations and hearing voices, but he’s not committable,” said clinical psychologist Dr. Wyatt Nichols. “He’s neither suicidal or homicidal, but he has a history of being suicidal.” Nichols also said Brown is showing early signs of schizophrenia, is depressed and psychotic in addition to suffering from acute stress disorder, based on the murder. He testified he didn’t believe Brown was currently a danger to anyone. Additionally, Nichols testified Brown was prescribed the antipsychotic drug Risperdal, but Brown wasn’t taking the pill at the time he allegedly committed the murders. “The court believes anyone who commits a double murder with a baseball bat has significant mental problems,” Peeler said. “No one that is normal would commit such an act.” Because Brown is not committable, Judge Peeler ruled his case would be transferred from juvenile court to circuit court. “The court finds all requirements required by the district attorney’s office to make the transfer have been met,” said Peeler. “It’s not appropriate in this case for him to remain in the custody of juvenile court.” Because the hearing officially transferred Brown from juvenile court to circuit court, circuit court holds jurisdiction of the case and it is

Thanks for your business!

Who’s The Boss? There is only one boss, and whether a person shines shoes for a living or heads up the biggest corporation in the world, the boss remains the same. It’s the Customer. The Customer is the person who pays everyone’s salary and decides whether a business is going to succeed or fail. And “the boss” doesn’t care if a business had been around for 100 years. The minute you start treating “the boss” badly, “the boss” will put you out of business. “The boss”, The Customer, has bought and will buy everything you have or will have all of your clothes, your home, your car, your children’s education and your vacations. “The boss” pays all of your bills, and pays in exact proportion to the way you treat him/her. The person who works inside a big office building or plant might think he/she works for the company that writes the paychecks, but that’s not true. They are working for “the boss” who buys the product at the end of the line. In fact, The Customer will fire everybody in the company from the President down. And can do it simply by spending money somewhere else. Some of the largest companies that had flourishing businesses a few years ago are no longer in existence. They couldn’t or didn’t satisfy the customer. They forgot who “the boss” really is.

Come together in support, action There’s something to be said about small communities and the way they’re brought together through tragedy, the way they support each other when they only thing that can be done is pray. I didn’t grow up in a small town, but even high school students in large cities come together during losses and wins and it’s an amazing thing to sit back and witness. During my sophomore year, a popular basketball player collapsed on the court during practice and died shortly thereafter. I was only 16 then, but I remember the way almost everyone mourned this loss, whether they knew Coop or not, because of his age, because OFF THE RECORD of the unexpected nature of his death, because we knew E CHO DAY it could have easily been any one of us. This, the lesson in humility when a diagnosis or death hits too close to home, is one of the threads that unifies communities, large or small. Just as I watched my classmates begin to make shirts in Robert Cooper’s memory, draw his number and nickname on their backpacks and tennis shoes and collect money to help offset funeral costs, so have I watched as Tipton County has been flooded in a sea of purple and pink bows and prayers for healing. I’ve been in Tipton County for five years now and I have never seen anything like this. People who’ve grown up in Tipton County and lived here all of their lives haven’t seen this community come together as much as in the last two weeks following Lucy Krull’s cancer diagnosis. I do not know Lucy, but I am a mother and so I can sympathize with Kate Krull. In fact, I have two five-year-olds, one of which turned five just four days before Lucy did, so the fact that this beautiful little blonde is fighting for her life gives me pause, humbles me. What if it was one of my children instead of Lucy? We want to help, but with the exception of praying, there is little the general public can do to help Lucy. However, one way to give back is through fundraising efforts. From bake sales to bows and bracelets, individuals close to the Krull family have planned many ways to support Lucy and collect donations. You can also help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays – for Lucy, hopefully, and for many others too – through support of Relay for Life. On May 6, the annual event, which is the flagship fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, will take place at Cobb-Parr Park. By then, Lucy will be undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, fighting harder than ever to live. You can help her, and others like her, in her fight by donating to Relay for Life or by creating a team to walk the track in Lucy’s honor. In fact, I challenge you to it. Your donation, the funds you help raise, might just be what helps fund research that will enable Lucy and others like her to celebrate more birthdays. It's a beautiful thing to watch as the community unites in support of one of its own and it's even better when the community unites to act on that support, to work together to raise money for cancer research, too. Find out how you can participate in Relay for Life by visiting www.rfl.org/tipton.

Beyond their time Following 9-11, I was recalled the first time to help set up and deliver training for sailors being called up from reserves to serve in security forces around d the globe. The great bunch of guys who served with me on this team would kid me about being a bit behind the times on technology, pop culture and my sociopolitical views. As a term of endearment I was often called “Father O’Hardin”, but they really meant well and I think in the end I had at least a bit JIM HARDIN of a positive influence on them regarding core values and honorable living. In talking about life and living one day, my dear friend Pat said that I was “born beyond my time”, playing on the theme of calling men advanced in their ideas in relation to their contemporaries persons born before their time. Later that June night in 2002 I seized on that phrase and wrote out a poem I entitled “Beyond Their Time”. Now, I am not a great man and I am definitely a man with many faults, but I found myself lamenting SEE TIME, PAGE A5

POLITICS

Healthcare bill goes to house, fallen service members honored By REP. BARRETT RICH Whip, Tennessee House of Representatives

Health Freedom Act headed to house floor The “Health Freedom Act” moved this week, clearing all necessary House committees, and is now scheduled for a vote on the House Floor. Republicans have championed the proposal for two years now to counter the federal health care takeover passed by Congress. House Bill 0115 provides that every person within Tennessee is free to choose or decline any mode of health care services without penalty or punishment from the government. Additionally, it ensures that Tennessee officials will be prohibited from interfering with the health care insurance decisions of every Tennessean. Believing that expanding government programs is rarely an effective solution to complex issues, Republicans have argued the federal government’s takeover of healthcare will only prove to balloon the cost of healthcare services to the states. Last year, the legislation hit a snag in a House committee after thorough debate over several weeks. Other states have passed similar legislation, and many are already in the process of filing a lawsuit against the federal government regarding the healthcare overhaul. Republicans hope to see passage of the bill on the House Floor soon. Republicans pass legislation

honoring fallen service members By a unanimous vote Republican Members of the House passed legislation Monday evening that properly honors Tennessee’s fallen service members. House Bill 47 requires State flags to be flown at half-staff by State political subdivisions during a day of mourning as declared by the Governor. The bill covers all members of the armed services who courageously give their lives in the line of duty. The bill sponsor stressed that the nation has been built on the sacrifice of brave service members, many of whom hail from Tennessee. The measure rightfully honors these special sailors, soldiers, and airmen who gave everything for freedom as Americans and Tennesseans. Governor visits storm damaged areas Heavy storms and a few tornadoes passed through Tennessee this week causing extensive damage around the State. On Wednesday, the Governor toured a storm-damaged neighborhood in Franklin County where one man was killed earlier this week. "We let them know our thoughts and prayers are with them," Governor Haslam told reporters near the remnants of the home where 79-year-old Melvin Hambrick was killed on Monday. "You never quite get used to the fact that there was somebody's home sitting there one minute, and the next minute

it's totally blown away," Haslam said. "There was one life lost here, which is hard to ever accept, and several other families whose lives have been fairly drastically changed as well." Neighbor Connie Nicholson told the governor that she was "just thankful to be alive" after the storm that blew down her garage and flung her dog down the street. Speaker makes key appointments This week, the speaker announced two key appointments to prestigious commissions that serve Tennesseans. The Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission (POST) and the Tennessee Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (TACIR) will receive new members who will serve roles representing the House of Representatives on the commissions. Rep. Rich was appointed to serve on POST due to his extensive law enforcement background and the unique perspective he has on those issues, while Rep. Halford was named to TACIR because of his commitment to bringing accountability and transparency in government. The speaker remarked about the TACIR appointment, “It is the responsibility of our government to create an environment for job growth and economic development. We can best do that by ensuring government at all levels is responsive and accountable to Tennesseans.”

POLITICS

Naifeh calls for an end to continuous attacks (Nashville) – Speaker Emeritus Jimmy Naifeh, Wednesday called for an end to the continuous attacks on the teaching profession in the state legislature. “We are asking today that the majority party and the administration listen to the people of Tennessee,” said Naifeh (D-Haywood & Tipton Counties). “It is clear that the people in this state oppose the attacks being perpetrated by the Senate and House leadership. Teachers deserve the right to have a say in bettering their way of life, their classrooms and the lives of their students. Education: It’s about our kids.” An anti-teacher bill, which takes

away the rights of teachers to negotiate a contract covering their salary, benefits, working conditions, school safety, class size, planning time, time to teach, length of the school day, scheduling and other priorities, passed the Senate Education Committee recently and is awaiting a full Senate vote in the coming days. “A teacher’s work environment is a child’s learning environment,” Naifeh said. This week, the Senate Education Committee passed a bill stipulating that current tenure law would be stripped and not available until five years of probationary work was reached by teachers. The cur-

rent probationary time is three years, after which a teacher can’t be fired without probable cause. Even after tenure is obtained a teacher is still subject to disciplinary action or dismissal for incompetence, inefficiency, insubordination, neglect of duty or unprofessional conduct. Teachers signed off on “Race to the Top” legislation last year imposing stricter standards on themselves. That agreement has been broken, in that, more standards are being suggested, while Race to the Top guidelines have yet to be implemented, Naifeh added.

TIME

Continued from A4 the state of man in our time and was inspired to use Pat’s theme to write this verse that represented my ideal of a heroic man of old trapped in a modern age. Here is "Beyond Their Time": I know of men born beyond their time Trapped in an age of self indulgent chaos Men who long for chivalry and honor Though they dread that age is long lost Many say such an age really never was That mankind has always been beastly So they’re ridiculed and viewed as quaint Pollyanna’s Without a common sense of reality “Intolerant!” is the charge of those whom loath These men for the moral codes they keep Their values derided as

archaic burdens By those who comfort in a conscience-less sleep Men who naively believe in a woman’s virtue That man’s spoken word is made of never fading ink Yet neither saints nor sinless are titles they claim For they know freewill is to temptation but a single link

Preferring truth to vic’try and honor to pleasure Not chosen, but choosing the life they should Men constantly struggling against selfish modernity Tough seems obvious their efforts will come to no good They helplessly watch as their children are drawn Like a herd to the wiles of Lucifer’s grain Many tell them it’s useless

to struggle against A time without honor, virtue or shame Yet struggle they will till the last of them falls As we’ve read in Arthurian legend and rhyme Though out of step with the rest to the course they will keep These very few men born beyond their time

Discouraged? Don't be! By RICK HUFFMAN Gilt Edge Church of Christ All of us have disappointments from time to time that discourage us and take the wind out of our sails. I remember sitting at the feet of Jimmy Allen when I was a college student. He talked about the “peaks and valleys in his life.” He would tell how he would have mountaintop experiences such as holding a gospel meeting and many being baptized or restored. He then would tell of other times when his life would suffer an emotional low from the death of a loved one or someone he trusted disappointing him. All of us have had similar feelings. Even great men (and women) become discouraged at times. Jesus also had times when he became very discouraged. Jesus had many followers. On one occasion after teaching and then feeding five thousand, He realized those He taught that were following Him did not understand the nature of His Kingdom. He perceived that they would try to take Him by force and make him a king (John 6:15) so that He had to hide in a deserted mountain. They did not understand that his kingdom was not of this world. (John 18:36) Jesus later appeared on the other side of the Sea of Galilee and His followers asked how He got there. He was discouraged because they sought Him for the wrong reasons. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.” (John 6:26) His followers were interested only in the physical, not the spiritual. They were interested in feeding the body, not the soul. When He talked to them about His being the bread of life (John 6:35, 48), the Jews murmured that He would dare to claim to be the bread come down from heaven. (John 6:41) The end result was that most of His followers deserted Him. “From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with

him.” (John 6:66) Notice the discouragement that came to Jesus and the doubt that entered His Heart. “Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?” (John 6:67) Many times when we are discouraged, there is someone who cheers us up and reminds us that things are not as bad as they seem. On this occasion, for the Lord, that person was Peter. Listen to what he said. “Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.” (John 6:68) Elijah became very discouraged and felt sorry for himself. The wicked Ahab and Jezebel sought his life. He had tried to be faithful to the Lord. He felt like he was fighting a losing battle and he felt that it was he against the world but he was very wrong. I Kings 19:10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away. Things are seldom as hopeless as we make them out to be. Elijah was far from being the only faithful servant left. I Kings 19:18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him. God still had 7,000 faithful to him. Similarly, we tend to feel sorry for ourselves and become discouraged when life’s hardknocks come our way and we suffer for the stand we take against error. We also tend to think that others do not care and we mistakenly feel that the weight of the world is on our shoulders. I’m reminded of the man who put it all into perspective. He said, “I used to complain and be discouraged because I had no shoes until I met the man who had no feet.” Regardless of the burden we may be called to bare, others have born the same burden or even greater burdens. The Lord has promised to not allow us to be tempted above what we are able to bear.(I Cor 10:13) Similarly He will

This Devotional & Directory is made possible by these businesses who encourage all of us to attend worship services

not allow us to have a burden placed upon us that we cannot bear. In fact, Jesus Himself promised to help us with the burdens we have and give us rest. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest” (Mat.11:28). Paul could have been discouraged after being beaten and placed in chains in a Roman prison in Philippi, but we find him and Silas praying and singing. (Acts 16:25) Paul gives a long list of the things he suffered for the cause of Christ (II Cor. 11:23-33) including beatings, whippings, stonings, shipwreck, in cold, in hunger and in thirst and the list continues. Any of these would shake the faith of most of us and discourage us to the point we would give up and quit, but not Paul. He took it all in stride. Here’s how he did it. “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 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. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Two things stand out in Paul’s ability to cope and not be discouraged. First, he learned in whatever condition he found himself in to be content. We need to learn to be content. Paul besought the Lord to remove his thorn in the flesh three times. God responded by saying that His grace was sufficient unto Paul. (II Cor. 12:9) God’s grace is sufficient for us, too. We, like Paul, need to be content with the blessings the Lord bestows upon us. Secondly, Paul put his trust and confidence in the Lord. He said through Christ, I can do anything, I can endure anything, I can accomplish anything and I can overcome any adversity that comes my way. Would to God that we had the same confidence and trust in God to see us through any and all of life’s hardships. Don’t be discouraged! “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Rom 8:31)

Covington to host boxing tourney By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com

Despite losing some key seniors, including pitcher Leanna Coulston, the Lady Cardinals plan on competing for a third straight state tournament berth this season.

Lady Cards look strong By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com Heading into the 2011 softball season, the Brighton Lady Cardinals certainly appear to have the pieces to get back to the state tournament. Five starters return, including seniors Caroline Jacobs and Britt Sanford, both of whom have been starters since they were freshmen. Jacobs, who hit .400 last season while holding down first base, is the career BHS leader in just

about every offensive category, including average, homeruns, RBI’s and stolen bases. Sanford plays an excellent shortstop and provides power and a high average in the middle of the lineup. If there is a question mark for this team, it’s in the circle. Leanna Coulston, who pitched every important game for the Lady Cardinals the last two years, graduated last May. “How we do at that spot will be very impor-

tant,” Brighton head coach Robin Jacobs said. Junior Meagan McDivitt, who played second base last season, appears to be the player who will fill Coulston’s role. Sophomores Laura Judy and Lulu Smith are also candidates to see some pitching action. Other players with extended varsity experience include junior catcher Laken Jackson and sophomore third baseman Hadley Wilkins. Robin Jacobs is entering his 15th season as

Brighton’s head coach. He’s the only coach the program has ever had. Accordingly, he’s seen new players step into new roles quite a few times. He’s pretty confident his team will find a way to compete for a third straight state tournament berth. “I think we’ve got a good chance to do some good things,” said Jacobs, “if the girls come along … And they always have.”

Boxing fans definitely have something to be excited about this weekend. This Friday and Saturday the Covington Boxing Club will host the West Tennessee Golden Gloves and Junior Golden Gloves tournament. The action starts at 7:30 p.m. each night. “ We ’ r e going to have a lot of good boxers out here this weekend,” said Covington coach Jimmy Glover. “A lot of our best boxers will be in action.” Locals Anthony Campbell (165 pounds),

Cougar baseball brings back eight starters By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com Most coaches are, at least publicly, cautiously optimistic. Preseason predictions of greatness almost never come out of the mouths of coaches. Munford High School baseball coach Steve Ledford is no different. But when a coach looks up and down his roster and sees eight returning starters, even the most guarded coach has to admit that things are looking pretty good. “We’ve been young for a while,” said Ledford, who is entering his fourth season as head coach at Munford. “The young title is off. We’ve got a lot of guys who’ve played a lot of varsity. I’ve told

the guys it’s time to put up or shut up.” Junior Stephen Steward, a lefty who pitches, plays centerfield and is one of the team’s best hitters, figures to lead the way. He’s started since he was a freshman. Joining him in the outfield will be returning starters Zach Mays, a senior, and junior Ryan Flake. Senior Dylan Turner returns as the starter at third base and junior Dillon McCraw is back as the starting catcher. Jase Hutchison started at shortstop last year as a freshman and also returns. Troy Glover, the team’s third senior, will hold and down first base and see some action on the mound. If there is one area of concern for Ledford, it’s an inexperienced

pitching staff. Behind Stewart, not many guys have logged many varsity innings. Juniors Josh Reeves and Jake Edgington, who figure to compete for spots in the rotation, combined for just 10 varsity innings last season. Casey Crowe, a junior lefty, falls into that category as well. “We’ve definitely got some guys who need to step up and fill in that rotation,” Ledford said. Ledford said he figures Dyer County to be the favorite in District 13-AAA, with Hardin County also being a factor. “But I put us right up there at the top too,” said Ledford, whose team begins the season March 14 at home against Bartlett. “I think we should have a good baseball team.”

ROADSHOW COMES TO COVINGTON NEXT WEEK! By Jason Delong

STAFF WRITER Clean out your attics, closets and lock boxes, because the Treasure Hunters Roadshow is coming to Covington. Roadshow experts are in town examining antiques, collectibles, gold and silver. While the Roadshow will accept anything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old, they will be focusing on: gold and silver coins made before 1964, military items, toys and trains, musical instruments, pocket and wrist watches. Scrap gold is expected to be a popular category this week due to soaring gold prices.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;U.S. COINS MADE BEFORE 1964 ARE THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER BY COLLECTORS. COINS MADE BEFORE 1964 ARE 90% SILVER, AND VALUABLE BECAUSE OF EITHER THE SILVER CONTENT OR EVEN MORE VALUABLE IF ONE HAPPENS TO BE A RARE DATE.â&#x20AC;? Expert buyers for the roadshow have noticed a tremendous increase in the amount of gold coming to the Roadshow, and for good reason. Record gold prices have Roadshow guests cashing in on broken or outdated jewelry with our fair and honest purchase offers. The Roadshow encourages anyone planning a visit to take a minute and examine their jewelry box or their lock box at the bank and gather anything that is gold. If a guest is not sure if something is gold, bring it anyways and the Roadshow staff will test it for free. Other gold items of interest include gold coins, gold ounces, gold proof sets and dental gold. Other types of items Roadshow experts hope to see include old toys and train sets. Archie Davis, the Roadshowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toy expert, spoke about some of the top toys getting great offers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old tin wind-up toys from the late 1800â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s through the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are in great demand right now,â&#x20AC;? said Davis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;especially those that are character related. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, the Flintstones or any other character toys are sought after. Old Buddy L toys from the 1920â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are especially in high demand.â&#x20AC;? Basically any toys made before 1965 are wanted. Train sets made by Lionel, Americn Flyer, Marklin and others have the potential to fetch a large sum. Davis also stressed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Toys with boxes and in mint condition bring sensational prices. Most of the toys that come to the

Got Gold? Next week, visitors can cash in on antiques, collectibles, gold, silver, coins or just about anything that is old. Roadshow are not in perfect shape, but can still bring good prices from collectors.â&#x20AC;? When exper t Tom Fuller was asked what he enjoyed most about working at the Roadshow, he was quick to answer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old coins and paper currencyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated with collecting coins. I would go through the change in my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grocery store, looking for rare dates and errors. Once, I found a silver quarter that I sold Aboveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Roadshow exper t, Tony Enright, talks for $300. Not bad for an 8 with a family about the gold jewelr y that they year old.â&#x20AC;? Fuller went on to explain brought in. that any U.S. coins made before 1964 are the most sought after by collectors. Coins made before 1964 are 90% silver, and valuable because of either the silver content or even more valuable if one happens to be a rare t(BUIFSJUFNTPGJOUFSFTUGSPNZPVSBUUJD  date. Fuller explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We help people sort HBSBHF CBTFNFOU FUD5IFSFJTOPMJNJUUP through their coins for unique dates. We buy all UIFBNPVOUPGJUFNTZPVDBOCSJOH types of coins at the Roadshowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from wheat pennies to buffalo nickels, and from single t/PBQQPJOUNFOUJTOFDFTTBSZ coins to entire truckloads.

UNITED IN PRAYER On Friday, March 4, approximately 150-200 gathered at Cobb-Parr Park for a community prayer service in honor of Lucy Krull, a Covington five-year-old recently diagnosed with medulloblastoma. Photos by Emily Peyton Cook.

Putting unity back into

COMMUNITY S

mall towns are known for being friendly, for coming together in a time of need. And nowhere is that more evident right now than in Tipton County, where hundreds of families have focused their thoughts and prayers on the healing of Lucy Krull.

County comes together in prayer for five-year-old cancer patient By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com

Diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a highly malignant brain tumor, on Feb. 23, Lucy's fight has only just begun, doctors say. And though only two weeks have passed since her diagnosis, the community has shown it will support one of its own while she's fighting for her life. "I felt helpless when I heard the news," said Covington photographer Emily Peyton Cook, a longtime friend of the family. "The only thing I could do is pray." Two days after her diagnosis, on Thursday, Feb. 25, Lucy underwent surgery to remove the tumors in her brain and on her spine. That morning, Cook and a friend asked Hometown Flowers & Gifts owner Kathy Daniel Wright to tie bows in Lucy's favorite colors, hot pink and purple, colors that are now flooding Tipton County and a sea of support. And the bows aren't just in Covington anymore. They've been sent from coast to coast and can be seen tied to mailboxes, lamp posts, the doors of businesses and churches all over the county. "They're everywhere," Cook

said. "This is gone beyond whatever we could imagine and its really uniting our community." A lifelong resident of Covington, Cook said she's never seen a cause with so much visibility, so much support, as the campaign now dubbed "Go, Lucy, Go!" In fact, Wright said she and her co-workers have tied more than 3.5 miles of ribbon. "This is amazing; I've never seen anything like it," she said. "I've never seen anything bring the community together like this. What a powerful little girl." Lucy Bows are sold for $10 each with proceeds donated to the Krull family. By Wednesday, more than $7,000 had been raised. "We're getting requests for bows and donations from people who don't live here, who don't even know Lucy," Wright said. "It's been a very emotional week and a half and we've been touched by so many people." Cook's husband, Zach, said the bows show an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the community. "It's a visible representation of what's in people's hearts," he said. "The community is truly grieving, but truly uniting."

On Friday, March 4, the Cooks, along with other friends, held a community prayer service at Cobb-Parr Park in Covington. Despite a significant chance of rain, hundreds of people attended the service to show their support and pray for Lucy. "Even though we had a 100 percent chance of rain and storms, we got there and it didn't rain a drop," Emily said. Zach said there was an overwhelming sense of hope and of faith at the service - and through this hope and faith, the message was simple. "We believe, Lucy, that God is going to heal you." Fundraising and awareness In addition to the bows and prayer service, bake sales and other means of making donations to the family have been organized. On Saturday, March 19, a bake sale will be held on the courthouse lawn from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The public is invited to attend as well as donate baked goods for resale. Drop-off will take place at First Baptist Church in Covington on Friday, March 18 from 4-7 p.m. and on Saturday, March 19 from 8-9 a.m. "Team Lucy" t-shirts and rubber bracelets are also being sold. For more information, as well as updates on Lucy's condition, visit Kate Krull's blog at erikandkatekrull.blogspot.com.

EVENT

Breakfast for Babies event to be held Friday By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com As a kick-off fundraiser for the March of Dimes' March for Babies, on Friday the annual Breakfast for Babies event will be held at The Bald Butcher in Covington. March for Dimes is a national organization which began over 70 years ago to combat childhood diseases and teach pregnant women about the necessity of prenatal care. March for Babies, the March of Dimes’ largest fundraiser, helps fund lifesaving research

B1.indd 1

and educational programs aimed at helping moms have healthy babies. Last year, the Covington event raised more than $44,000 – this year, March for Babies Chair Skipper Bondurant hopes to bring in even more by focusing on new revenue and helping to raise awareness in the area. “One in eight of our babies here in Covington is born premature, and that’s just not acceptable,” Bondurant said. Hosted by the Bank of Tipton and The Bald Butcher, this year's breakfast will feature a

wait staff comprised of celebrity guests. The breakfast will take place from 7-11 a.m. and the buffet will cost $7.99 (plus tax) and a generous tip. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the March of Dimes March for Babies Campaign. The Bald Butcher is located on Hwy. 51 South at Bert Johnston Ave. in Covington. March for Babies will take place on April 30. Teams wishing to participate can sign up at www.marchforbabies.org. Last year, more than 200 people attended the event.

GOT BREAKFAST? On Friday, March 11, the annual Breakfast for Babies fundraiser will be held at The Bald Butcher in Covington. A portion of the proceeds benefit the March of Dimes March for Babies event. Former Miss Tipton County Jennifer McCollough is shown in this file photo from the 2008 event.

Farmer Wins $2,500 for the Carl Perkins Center COVINGTON, Tenn. (March 2, 2011) –Andy Pinner of Burlison has been selected as a winner in the America’s Farmers Grow CommunitiesSM program, which gave farmers the opportunity to win $2,500 for their favorite local nonprofit organizations. The Monsanto Fund sponsors the program, and winning farmers designate a local nonprofit organization to benefit from the donations. Pinner designated the Carl Perkins Center, located in Covington to receive the donation. Pinner says he is very excited to have been selected as the winner for Tipton County. “The America’s Farmers Grow Communities program is a good idea because the money goes back into rural communities. I am really glad I was the Tipton County winning farmer,” Pinner said. “I choose the Carl Perkins Center because children are our future and I wanted to help the center continue to put smiles on children’s faces—it means a lot to be able to direct the $2,500 donation to them.” Bethany Kirby, director of the Tipton County Carl Perkins Center, says “I feel so humbled and honored that the Carl Perkins was selected to receive these funds. I think that there is a direct correlation from what the Monsanto Fund’s mission and purpose is and ours. At the Carl Perkins Center, we aim to build stronger families and

protect our communities. We are a good fit with the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program because we both want to make our communities better and stronger. This donation will benefit us greatly.” The $2,500 donation was awarded at a ceremony held March 2 at the Carl Perkins Center. In more than 1,200 eligible counties, farmers can win $2,500 for their favorite community non-profit. The Monsanto Fund expects to invest more than $3 million in local communities. Previous Grow Communities projects resulted in the donation of nearly $1.2 million in 477 counties in Arkansas, California, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, and South Dakota. In total, more than $60,000 has been donated to nonprofits in Tenn. The America’s Farmers Grow Communities program is part of a broad commitment by the Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of Monsanto Company, to highlight the important contributions farmers make every day to our society by helping them grow their local communities. To date, more than 60,000 farmers participated in the program, which is designed to benefit nonprofit groups such as ag youth, schools and other civic organizations.

Hi everyone, I knew it was too early to put that leather coat away. Sunday morning was still very cold to me. However, the temperatures still did not keep our church from being filled to the brim. The Covington Church of Christ of course is what I'm speaking of. There were not even any more parking places. I guess we will have to start getting there a little earlier. Hopefully it won't be long until that sunshine will be a part of our daily routine. Well, our little used vehicle we purchased last week has proven itself to be what we were told. It does in fact get that 35 miles per gallon in the city. We have not been out on the highways or on any trips to reach that 40 miles per gallon yet. We are still learning things about the buttons and its operations. Instead of sitting down and reading books, we are just going and learning along the way. Well, University of Memphis finally came through last week and beat Tulane. I hope they can keep it up. I guess Charlie and I will have to start taking in some of those games. Our Neighborhood Watch meeting last Thursday night went very well. Our local constable of District 7 is Dave Bitzer. He is a very impressive gentleman. We are very blessed to have him in our district. He not only has served time in the military, but he has also served in law enforcement. He strictly told us if he could ever be of any assistance he would be at our residence immediately. If a dire emergency

Hello from Burlison, If there is anyone out there that hasn’t heard of Lucy yet and her fight with cancer, then you’re really out of touch. Lucy is only four years old, no make that five now because she had a birthday on March 7. All the pink and purple ribbons you see up and down the roads throughout the county are in honor of Little Lucy. Lucy is the daughter of Erik and Kate Krull. My wife Paula and I attended a prayer service in Cobb Parr Park last Friday evening for Lucy. It was a humbling experience to stand on a hill side with a few hundred other people and all of them praying for Lucy and her family. I would like to say a big thank you to Covington Mayor Gordon for allowing this event to take place. In today’s world it’s hard to find someone that will take a stand for

People gathered in small groups of five to ten, some holding hands, some with out-stretched arms and still others with bowed heads asking for God’s healing for Lucy and strength for her family as they continue on this journey. I’m told that prayers and well wishes have now gone international for Lucy thanks to the Internet. She‘s receiving well wishes from far away places such as Canada and New Zealand. If you have a Facebook account, find the group Go Lucy Go and join in support for Lucy and her family. I’m sure all of you will join with me in saying GO LUCY GO!

Hope they are each the greatest. Happy anniversary to Rick and Jenni Langston. Before closing, I'd just like to say how wonderful it is to see the old Click-Idaville store on AtokaIdaville Rd. completely refurbished. Charlie and I have been in several times. Of course, it was his father, Mr. Winfred Click and his mother Mrs. Mildred Click's place of business for many years. It is now under new management with Kenny and Lisa McCain being the new owners and operators. It is so special because they have done everything possible to preserve the old image of its former interior to look like the original. Kenny and Lisa said that in approximately four weeks, they will begin serving sandwiches. It's now know as the K & L Exchange. You'll have to stop in sometime, especially if you were ever an old customer. Also, don't forget to spring forward and set your clocks up one hour on Saturday night. Have a great week.

Occupation Students of America) competed at the State level in Nashville at the Opryland Hotel for a chance to advance to National competition. In that group was a citizen of Burlison, Tony Joe Connell, son of Randy and Teresa Connell. He competed in Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) with a fellow student, Anneclaire Goforth. They had to take a test and perform a skill. On Wednesday, they were awarded first place for CERT in the state. The first, second and third place winners move on to compete in nationals. So, needless to say, Tony Joe and Anneclaire will travel to Anaheim, Calif. in June to compete with HOSA students from across the nation. The trip to Nashville was very exciting and educational. Now they can’t wait until California! Zach Wallace placed third in epidemiology, so overall three stu-

dents from Covington High School will fly to Anaheim. After all those practices and study sessions, it finally paid off! California here they come! I would like to send out happy birthday wishes to some home town folks. Ms. Reba Lavelle and Ms. Teresa Lavelle both celebrated their birthdays on March 7 and Ms. Debbie Lavelle on March 9. Poor Richard! Can you imagine having to buy that many birthday presents all in the same week? On Monday of this week, Adam called us late in the afternoon to let us know he had been at the emergency room at UT Knoxville all day with Maddie Overall. As it turned out Maddie had to have emergency appendectomy surgery. At the writing of this article Maddie was out of surgery and doing well. Get well soon, Maddie.

Jamestown DarSay Burton

Greetings, It was cold! After all of our rain on Saturday, the temperature dropped way down too. I thought, “It's really cold outside.” It was so cold I needed and enjoyed wearing my heavy winter coat to church on Sunday! Didn't that groundhog see its shadow? What's up with that? Anyway, it's just March and as all of you know around now, anything's subject to roll in! Even though it was still cold out, President Mary Burton and teacher, Willie Mae Burton met with the missionary group at the Center on Tuesday at 5 p.m., they were happy to see everyone come out. On Saturday, in all of that rain, JCHO met with president Pearl Andrews and the officers to put final plans in

order for March 26 at 5 p.m. at the Covington Country Club. “It Takes Ten” will be JCHO's second fundraiser on this theme. The public's welcome. The price is $10. I hope to see everyone of you there for fun, games and plenty of delicious food. You can contact either JCHO officer with your $10 or you can pay after you arrive for the festivities. Speaking of the Country Club, another fundraiser will be held there this Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. JCHO's second annual “A Night of Elegance,” which will be more information to come as we approach this date. The public is also invited for this wonderful event. Hope to see you all there! On Saturday, March 12, the Duration Club Ladies along with president Willie Mae Burton will be having March's meeting at Willie Mae's lovely home in Jamestown. The time is 2 p.m. Refreshments will be

It's been really cold again here on the mountain. It's supposed to rain this afternoon; we got almost two inches Saturday morning in that storm. I can tell it's almost spring! I kept Lyla last Thursday. Can't believe she will be a year old next month. She's jabbering three-syllable words now and saying “mommy” instead of “momma.” They came over for a little while yesterday and James had fun trying to get her to walk. Our First Friday dinner and movie night was last week and we saw I Am Number Four. It was good and really left itself open for a sequel, which we plan to see also. Going with me were Mary Joyce Coughlan, Wanda Townsend and Cammy Evans. We were number four! On Saturday morning, I went to Munford to pick out a new vanity top for the hall bathroom and furniture-shopped some. That afternoon, my dad, Kenneth Weir, and I did some errand-running. It was misting, cold and very windy. Not a good day to be out. On Sunday, we ate some Mexican with Elizabeth, Lyla, Clint, Hunter Dawson and Sarah Dickey and her parents, Eddie and Deane.

China, was having their first grandchild that day. He was born that night and weighed around 10 pounds! Both mother and baby are fine. I hope they get to see him soon! Congratulations! I hope lots of you are coming to the Byars-Hall Reunion on Heritage Day weekend. I have the correct dates now – September 23-24. BHHS would have been 100 years old (1911-2011) and everyone who attended the Purple and Gold are invited. There will be something Friday night, events at the Chamber Center on Heritage Day on Saturday, and another get-together Saturday night. I got a book-selling booth for it and hope to sell some more of both my books. If you don't have a registration form, call Bill Gatlin at 901476-0532. Also in June they are having a BHHS Chorus Reunion and performance. Maybe band members too. That really sounds like fun. Wish we still had our old purple and gold robes we wore in concerts! Larry Whaley II and Roy Randolph remain in the hospital. Lucy Krull and Coy Rose remain very much in our prayers, as well as Jenni Langston and Eric and Shirley Jones. There are so many others and I know you have folks on your hearts that you are praying for.

served. The March meeting of the Jolly Corteria Club was held on this Tuesday afternoon in the lovely home of member La Rue Albritton of Jamestown at 1 p.m. The hostess was president Gloria Sherrill who served a wonderful luncheon which everyone enjoyed. Happy anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. Jeffrey Mosley (Janet) Sr. on March 7 and to Mr. and Mrs. Isaiah Burton Sr. on March 8 who celebrated 66 wonderful years of marriage. I don't know how many years for the Mosleys, but it's over 20 of them I believe. Happy anniversary to two lovely couples.

And all our military men and women. It rained off and on all day Friday, but during the prayer service for little Lucy at Cobb-Parr Park, the rain completely held off for the entire service. Neat. Happy birthday this week goes to Alan Otts, Billy Chapman and Whitney Conner on March 8 and to Lauron Chaney and Clay Dunger on March 12! Happy anniversary to Rick and Jenni Langston on March 8! They were married in the beautiful Clopton United Methodist Church. Our children at the Covington Church of Christ are getting ready for the Annual Lads to Leaders and Leaderettes on Easter weekend in memphis. Easter is really late this year – April 24! That's practically May! Attention! Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend (and in the middle of the month)! Anyway, spring forward Saturday night before you go to bed! There's a lot going on at Mt. Carmel. There is a share cropper's house down the road from us that the University of Memphis is completely rebuilding as “a great opportunity to teach/ learn issues of preservation of our architectural haritage, the share cropping history of Tennessee, hands-on construction and sustainable construction practices.” The house will be a

writer's studio for Adam Calhoun Simpson, greatgreat-grandson of George Calhoun, cousin-in-law of Frances Boyd Calhoun of Miss Minerva fame. It's all very exciting! Eva Calhoun lived in a house where ours is built. I have a copy of her will. Never really connected her with Frances Boyd Calhoun. I guess the Halls and the Calhouns were all over Mt. Carmel! Adam's mother, Nancy Calhoun Simpson, and her sister, Carolyn C. Hall, own the farm and Adam said he's been coming out here since he was a kid. He wants to eventually live on the hill behind the little house and says he can't wait to spend time out here this summer with his children, a family farm. This week's pup report: Shelia Noack picked up a pup Saturday so now there are three. They are so cute when we let them out in the yard. They fight, bark and growl at each other and just run and run. Free pups! No, I mean they are free – no cost! This week's Farmer's Almanac Quote; “What state gladly depicts a woman stepping on a man? Virginia.” There's a story behind that!

Present were DarSay Burton and seven other ladies. They had pizza and salad and watched a movie starring Lou Gossard Jr. called Cover. It was a very good movie and we all had a wonderful time. This is it for this time. Remember, “Trash only gets in your eyes when you are looking too hard into other folk's business instead of looking into your own!” Until next time...

Signup period announced for the Conservation Reserve Program Covington, TN â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 28, 2011â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Glenn P. Zarecor Sr., Executive Director for the Tipton County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA), announced a Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) signup March 14 through April 15. This is the second consecutive year that USDA has offered a general CRP signup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Financial incentive available through CRP affords farmers and ranchers a low risk opportunity to implement a variety of conservation practices that will benefit the environment in a number of ways,â&#x20AC;? said Zarecor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the past 25 years, CRP practices have improved

MUNFORD MAYOR HONORS COMMUNITY MEMBERS Mayor Dwayne Cole of Munford, along with the St. Paul Chapel M. B. Church, presents proclamations of recognition to Marilyn Russell of Drummonds for being an active learner and for her dedication and commitment to keeping her community clean. Cole also recognized Leslie Wakefield of Drumonds for being a faithful servant who is always willing to lend a helping hang to anyone in need.

water and air quality, increased wildlife habitat and prevented soil erosion,â&#x20AC;? he said. Landowners enrolled in the CRP program receive annual rental payments and cost-share assistance to establish long-term, resource conserving covers on eligible farmland. Land that is not currently enrolled in CRP can be offered during sign-up if all eligibility requirements are met. CRP participants with contracts expiring this fall can make new contract offers during the signup period. Contracts awarded during this general signup will become effective Oct. 1. All CRP offers are

evaluated and ranked using an Environmental Benefits Index (EBI) that indicates the environmental benefits of enrolling land in CRP. There are five environmental factors that make up the EBI: wildlife, water, soil, air, enduring benefits and cost. Decisions will be made following the end of the sign-up period and after analyzing EBI data on all of the offers. In addition to the general sign-up, the continuous CRP sign-up program will be ongoing. For more information, please contact the Tipton County FSA Office at 901475-3350 or visit http:// www.fsa.usda.gov/crp.

Byars-Hall Alumni News By MACK EASLEY Special to The Leader

At left, DSCC’s homecoming royalty are pictured: (Left to right) Shauna Dance of Humboldt, first maid; Kathrin “Kati” Donaldson of Atoka, queen; Rebecca Ponton of Drummonds, second maid. Below, DSCC homecoming queen Kati Donaldson of Atoka poses with the DSCC Eagle.

Atoka student voted queen Dyersburg, TN – Kathrin “Kati” Donaldson of Atoka received the majority of votes cast by the Dyersburg State Community College student body in its homecoming queen election. Donaldson was one of seven contestants for the title. Shauna Dance of Humboldt was named first maid, while Rebecca Ponton

of Drummonds was named second maid. The three finalists were presented at the DSCC Homecoming basketball games on Friday, Feb. 18 held at the E. H. Lannom, Jr. Gymnasium on the Dyersburg campus. Donaldson was crowned queen at the halftime of the men’s game.

On Wednesday, March 2, the BHHS alumni group met for lunch at Bozo’s restaurant. Fiftyfour were present for the bi-monthly luncheon. Those attending for the first time were: Mary Ann Waring Byrd, Mary Ann Wright Fleming, Lynn Eubanks Blalock, Evie Johnson Corder, Ruth Fryer Lopez, Ridley Clifton, Wanda Beaver Fee, Norma Gray Turner, Buddy Bramble, and Carolyn Sherrod Rogers. The next luncheon will be in the first week of May ( TBA). So, folks living out of the area can plan to be here and join the fun with old friends from across the years. The BHHS 100th anniversary and reunion is on schedule for September 23-24, Heritage Day weekend. The registration forms are steadily arriving and an excellent turnout of 300 – 400 is expected. At this early point in time, good numbers are coming from the classes of the 1940s, ’56, ’57, ’58 and ’60. We are needing everyone to get the word out to family and friends that were part of the graduating classes of ’61 thru ’70. We have not done a good job in contacting those members. We have one

person attending from the class of 1930 and she will be the age of 100 in July. We are anxious to have her attend and possibly reflect on BHHS over the years. She was born the year that the school was founded, so she knows a lot about it. “Keeping in Touch” (K.I.T.), the alumni email newsletter has grown to a distribution of 425 alumni living all across the country. We are in need of more subscribers from the classes in the 1960’s. Everyone is encouraged to submit stories, pictures, reports of illness, class meetings, deaths and personal accomplishments to the newsletter ’s address, bhhsalumni@aol.com. We have announced that we want to erect a historical marker at the site of Byars-Hall. As soon as the school system informs us of the approval procedure, we will use the K.I.T. alumni email distribution to solicit funding for the $2500 project. It is our hope that this can be accomplished and the dedication of the marker will take place on Heritage Day 2011. If you wish to request a registration form, contact The Leader at news@ covingtonleader.com or contact Mack Easley.
