T

housands of dollars were raised at the annual March of Dimes Breakfast for Babies event, held in Covington Friday. A pre-cursor to the annual March for Babies, the breakfast kicks off fundraising for the organization. “We raised $830 in tips plus the $1,500 sponsorship for the event, making the total for the event $ 2,230,” said community director Jeannie Patrick. “This was awesome.” Celebrity waiters - like county clerk Mary Gaither, Covington-Tipton County Chamber of Commerce Director Lee Johnston and bankers Bobby Chapman and C.H. Sullivan - served guests and earned tips for the non-profit organization. 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 and educational programs aimed at helping moms have healthy babies. Last year, the Covington march 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. March for Babies will take place on April 30. Teams wishing to participate can sign up at www.marchforbabies.org.

Mississippi rises above flooding By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com With the flood of May 1, 2010 in mind, many Tipton County residents have been wary of rising water in the lower Mississippi River areas causing some flooding in surrounding bottomlands. Last weekend, the National Weather Service issued a flood warning for every county surrounding the Mississippi River from Cairo, Ill. southward to the mouth of the White River in Arkansas. In the counties of Tipton, Lauderdale and Shelby the effects can be plainly seen by citizens scouting the

Many parents, student and citizens of Tipton County have been anticipating what’s coming next after director of schools Tim Fite announced his retirement this year. In the wake of this statement made on Jan. 13, a recommendation has now been made for a successor. At the Tipton County Board of Education meeting on Thursday, March 10, Fite recommended that director BIBB of instruction Buddy Bibb take his place after his last day on June 30. “This applicant is qualified by all standards,” said Becky Shankle. “He provides stability to our school system. We’re fortunate to have this experienced candidate in our midst.” “Every time I visit other school systems, I come back renewed and relieved of our system’s capabilities,” said Covington High School principal Peggy Murdock. “I could not be more proud of this system built by Dr. Fite and Dr. Bibb.” On April 14, members of the community are invited to the board meeting for discussion and for their input. Bibb will open the meeting with a speech on future plans. Also, members of the planning teams involved with strategic planning in 2010 are invited to attend. A review committee will draft a report thereafter to be shared with the board members at the meeting on May 12 who will then cast their votes. “This is my 32nd year as an educator in the Tipton County school system,” said Bibb. “After 14 years at the board

PUBLIC SAFETY

Operation nets 24 arrests By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Dozens of suspected criminals were arrested last week during a multiagency sweep to lock them up. Operation Drug Sweep – which involved 22 deputies and US Marshals from the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division, SWAT team, K9 unit, constables and the US Marshals service – resulted in the arrest of 24 defendants on 57 indictments and eight new charges, said Deputy Chief Donna Turner, spokesperson for the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office. The operation targeted drug dealers and violent offenders indicted by the Tipton County Grand Jury on Monday, March 7. Turner said during the operation, narcotics investigators executed a search warrant for illegal drugs at 1071 Solo Road in Covington, the residence of George Leird Jr. The target of an undercover investigation, Leird, 24, is suspected of selling marijuana. Investigators located a quarter-pound of marijuana, $300 in cash and digital scales. Leird was arrested on indictments for possession of schedule III and schedule IV with intent to sell. Leird is free on a combined $7,500 bond and is awaiting court appearances on April 19. Additionally, investigators were attempting to serve an indictment on Adrian Donelle Harper, 21, of 154 Roseland Acres, Atoka, when he opened the door with what was observed to be a marijuana cigarette in his mouth. Law enforcement officers also observed scales and marijuana in plain view in the residence. During the arrest, officers seized a half-pound of marijuana, two sets of digital scales and a 42-inch flat screen television. Harper was arrested on the indictment charge of delivery of schedule VI with intent to sell and the new charge of possession of a schedule VI with intent to sell. Officers also found firearms during the March 10 sweep. While serving an delivery of schedule VI indictment on Michael Edward Mason, 25, of L91 Broadmeadow Apartments, Covington, investigators observed a 40-caliber pistol and a small amount of marijuana in plain view of the residence. A convicted felon, Mason is not permitted to be in possession of a firearm. During the arrest, $214 was seized. Mason was arrested on new charges of simple possession of schedule VI and felon in possession of a firearm. He is currently free on $2,500 bond awaiting an appearance in Tipton County Circuit Court. During Operation Drug Sweep, the following persons were arrested: ▪ Spanyada Marquaze Adams, 28, of 35 Geoffrey St., Ripley, Vehicular Homicide ▪ Deborah Mae Armstrong, 53, of 9523 Highway 59 S., Mason, Possession of Sch.

Main Street project ‘moving along’ By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com Last Tuesday, March 8, the Brighton meeting of mayor and aldermen was held at Town Hall. Many on-going items of business were up for discussion. Things are reportedly moving along involving the Main Street project. The oil tanks found a few weeks ago were taken out last Thursday. EnSafe, a global provider of environmental, health and safety, engineering, and technology solutions, was hired to take care of the paperwork involved in the format in dealing with the issue. The Environmental Protection Agency approved B & C Construction, the company contracted for con-

struction on Main Street, to remove the tanks. “We’re steadily making improvements as we go,” said chief administrator Chad Gatlin. “The new waterlines have optimal interchanges that branch off in different ways. More valves will be installed.” The Boy Scouts are holding a merit badge workshop on Saturday, April 2. Scoutmaster Bill McClain requested permission from the mayor and board of aldermen to utilize the old Brighton High School gymnasium and the senior center for the workshop. McClain also gave a report on the building that they use which is owned by the town as repairs have been made to it. “We got some good deals on material,” said

McClain. “We’re glad we didn’t have to spend as much money as we thought.” The troop decided to tile the floor, using materials on which they saved money. Costs are believed to have been cut in half. Additionally, repairs made to the roof have proved successful thus far, but it is beginning to show some wear and tear. Replacement shingles have held up well though some problem areas are beginning to show themselves. Because of this, the troop believes the roof will need to be replaced in the near future. The Brighton Police Department has recently purchased new software for squad cars. The improvements will

Local compliance officer Deputy Laura Adkins said the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office can also assist residents who wish to make queries regarding offenders. “If you don’t have access to a computer, you can always call and we’ll check,” she said. Persons having information regarding sex offenders who may be out of compliance are asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Division at 901-475-3300, Central Dispatch after hours at 901-475-4300, call the tipline at 901475-3007 or email tips to sheriff@tipton.com.

Deputies responded to the home and arrested Reburn on charges of solicitation of a minor and aggravated child abuse. During his arrest Turner said Reburn became verbally and physically resistive. After a brief struggle, he was taken into custody and also charged with resisting arrest. The Department of Children’s Services assisted detectives in the investigation. He is currently being held in the Tipton County Correctional Facility under a $100,000 bond and is expected in

Monitoring Sheriff Pancho Chumley said this case is an example of why the sheriff’s office continually and aggressively monitors registered sex offenders in Tipton County. During a random check in April 2010, Reburn was found to be in compliance, as were approximately 88 percent of the nearly 120 registered sex offenders in Tipton County. In addition to being monitored by law enforcement, the public can also keep up-to-date with the known addresses of offenders through websites like Family Watchdog (www.familywatchdog.us) and even the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s

The technology will aid dispatch in doing other jobs more efficiently. “We can get data on individuals without having to ask them personally,” said BPD investigator Craig Pifer. “It will let us know quicker if subjects are lying, et cetera.” The mayor then reported on the parks and recreation department. The foundation has been laid for the new concession stand at the ball fields. “After finishing the building, work will move to the field for improvements,” said Mayor Jeff Scott of Brighton. “We want to avoid having too many projects going on at once.”

around the Chisholm Lake area.” On March 14, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) reported that the Mississippi River at Osceola showed 34.84 feet. The major flood stage for that area is 35 feet and the forecast showed that the river would crest at 36 feet today. The National Weather Service received reports of extensive flooding around Crutcher Lake Road and Fort Pillow State Park. The Hatchie River has flooded into the fields around Highway 51 North and has backed up to Indian Creek Road. According to the USACE, the main concern is in the northern part of the Memphis district from Cairo, Ill. to Osceola, Ark. “Our number one priority is ensuring the safety of people in the (river) valley,” said USACE media relations coordinator Jim Pogue. “We’re in phase II of this flood fight. We’ve got people in the field patrolling levees, pumping stations and different aspects of the flood management system that work together to combat this.” Pogue reported that the flooding impact and flood fighting is standard routine. March 14-18 is flood safety awareness week. For more information, visit www. floodsafety.noaa.gov.

Often I take a trip down memory lane as I drive by some old landmarks (to me). But my wonderful Southern growing up historical monuments, from the past, are no longer in place. Today everyone is so busy, or so they claim, it is hard to even take a few minutes and reminisce with old acquaintances. As I casually go back through the tunnel of time, I still enjoy the feeling of sharing with my old friends from days of yore. However, it is hard to do, on most occasions. Recently, I was conversing with an old cotton picking, hay hauling classmate of many years ago, in his plush front yard. Under the shade trees probably a hun’ert years old, we tried to bring each other up to date, about our friends and various events. Several former snipe hunters are deceased, and some are having other problems, but it was not to be.

Voter I.D. Another bill planned for next w e e k would prevent senior citizens and others from voting without photo identification. The bill is widely thought to disenfran-

chise voters, particularly senior citizens and lower income Tennesseans, who do not possess a driver license. To require voters to pay for an identification card is nothing more than a tax on Tennesseans, Naifeh said. “I will fight to preserve the rights of all voters. This bill will only serve to keep many of Tennesseans, who have been voting for years, from going to the polls,” Naifeh said.

We build our business taking care of “The Boss.”

(L to R): Mark Wall, Dean Brasfield, James Jackson, Scott Curry, Josh Knight, Shane Knight, Terry Wall

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.

The point of no return By RICK HUFFMAN Gilt Edge Church of Christ Nearly two decades ago, I visited Niagara Falls with my family. The power and force of those falls with the nearly deafening noise of the water as it makes its descent over the falls is an experience I shall never forget. 150,000 gallons per second go over the American falls and four times that amount over the Canadian falls. While viewing the American falls along the banks of the Niagara River, there was a sign quite a distance up river from the falls itself. It read something like this, “NO WATERCRAFT, SWIMMING OR WADING PAST THIS POINT”. The reason was simple. The force of the water was greater than the watercraft, swimmer or wader. Anyone or anything in the water beyond that point would be swept over the falls to certain death. This was the point of no return. Anyone in the river at that point would not be able to extricate themselves safely from the river. God has given each of us a conscience. If trained properly according to God’s Word, it is safe to follow. It is always wrong to violate our conscience or do anything where we have doubts that it is right. Ro 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. Many of us pay little attention to our conscience. When we first go against our conscience, it hurts. We have feelings of guilt, shame and remorse. We may not be able to sleep, eat or function normally. We should never do anything to wound our own conscience or that of a brother. 1Co 8:13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest

I make my brother to offend. Mr 9:42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. Over time and with each additional occurrence where we violate our conscience, it becomes easier. Our conscience becomes dull, our heart becomes hardened, and the inner voice that tells us something is wrong grows more and more faint. Spiritually speaking, we can reach the point of no return or the point where there is no turning back. Just like the parachutist who jumps from a plane, there is no turning back. Our preacher told me once of such a man. The preacher had studied with this man. The man had faith but he would not obey and faith has to be shown by obedience to God’s works. (Jas 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Jas 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.) The man was like King Agrippa that Paul tried to convert long ago. Ac 26:27 King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? (Paul asks),I know that thou believest. 28 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian. Our preacher asked the man why he would not become a Christian (Repent of his sins- Acts 17:30-31, Confess the Christ- Mat. 10:32 and Be Baptized for the remission of his sins- Acts 2:38). In a pitiful voice from a soul filled with anguish, the man faintly whispered these two words, “I can’t”. This man had reached the point

of no return. He had come to the point that he could not turn around; he could not turn back to God. He wanted to but he could not, just as Esau had wanted to but could not. Heb 12:17 For ye know how that afterward, when he (Esau) would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. No wonder Solomon pens this warning, “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them. (Eccl. 12:1) When we are young, our heart is tender, much like a young plant’s leaves. As we grow older and as we allow lusts to tempt us, each time we allow sin to enter our lives, it becomes easier to give in and harder to overcome. Our conscience becomes dull. Ultimately we can get to the point we do not care any more about what is righteous and godly or even worse, we begin to love evil rather than good. We can get to the point we no longer hear our conscience or it is so seared that we are past feeling remorse for wrong doing. Listen to Jesus’s description. Mt 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. We all need to examine ourselves and see exactly at what point we are, spiritually speaking. We all need to be careful that we do not go past the point, the point of no return from which there is no turning back.

CHS FFA PLACE IN COMPETITION The Covington High School FFA recently competed in the West Tennessee Ag Mechanics Career Development Event at Haywood County High School on March 10. The team finished in second place in the district and ninth in west Tennessee. Team members were (from left to right) Tucker Derryberry, Cody Smith, Hunter Call, Daniel Flanagan and Clyde Richardson. Not pictured is Aerin Langlois. The team did such skills as mig welding, after construction, 3-way switch wiring project, land measuring and each individual also took a test on agriculture mechanics.

Charger Beat By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK … The ACT state testing date is March 15 and every high school junior across the state of Tennessee will participate. Every junior student has been preparing for the test all year long. It is our hope that each student will score well; will meet his/her prediction and that each will score well enough to show that they have the capability to be successful at college or university. CHS has tutoring available if your son or daughter wants a little extra help between now and March 15. Students with holes in their pants have become a problem on campus so we are strictly enforcing the “no-hole” policy of the county school board. We are asking students with holes in their pants to call home for an appropriate pair of pants and then we are giving those students detention to attempt to curb this problem. After our message system called home, we have seen great improvement in this issue. We thank you for your help. It has made a difference. Our other area of concern is the use of phones within the school building. As you are aware, there is a board policy prohibiting the use of cell phones within the schools. We are following the policy by taking up the phone for nine (9) weeks if the student is observes talking or texting on the phone. PLEASE help us with enforcement of this policy by asking your sin/ daughter to refrain from using the phone during school hours. Finally, we have been working hard to master the skills needed for the upcoming End of Course examinations. Our first EOC is scheduled for May 3. Please check with your student(s) to see if he/she needs any tutoring for any of these mandated final exams. Tutoring is available Monday-Friday from 3-5 for almost every subject. Students only have to come to Mr.Heaston’s class for assistance. Once they come, he will direct them to the appropriate tutor. Thanks for helping us to help your child. Peggy B.

Covington boxing fares well By JIMMY GLOVER Special to The Leader

The distinguished Lady Cougars By KYLE SELBY Special to The Leader The Munford Lady Cougars soccer team had a much better year on the field than their first, finishing the season with a record of 8-7-3 and again earning a trip to the regional tournament. Their work on the field is not all they have

accomplished. They have received the TSSAA Distinguished Award for Team GPA, by holding a 3.48 for the first semester of the 2010-11 school year. The following players also received the individual award for maintaining a GPA above 3.50: Lauren Agcanas 4.00, Abby Drexler 4.00, Alex Selby 4.00, Shelby

Bampfield 3.88, Sierra Campbell 3.83, Tara Finley 3.63, Summer Jensen-Pratt 3.67, Maggie Johnson 3.63, Brooke Joyce 3.88, Yazmin Najera 3.63, Jessie Pyland 3.86. The other members of the team include: Maggie Billings, Meghan Brehm, Paige Campbell, Jordan Hopkins, Ruth Hull, Taylor Martchek, Hannah

Montgomery, Kayla Reese, Anna Shamblin, Christin Smith, Sadie Wright. This award is only possible with everyones hard work, from the teachers to the administration at Munford High School. Congratulations to these young ladies for their outstanding effort on and off the field.

Rebels tour St. Jude Children's Hospital TRA baseball team humbled by St. Jude hospital visit By LORI REGIS Special to The Leader On February 16th, the TRA Baseball Program was given the opportunity to tour St. Jude Children's Hospital. The tour was set up by Coach Brad Smith with the mindset that his players would see the fight that these patients have every day of their lives and to understand how

blessed they are to have healthy bodies. They had the privilege of meeting two patients, Trevor and Taylor, while we at St.

Jude. They all developed an immediate bond that the players will never forget. The TRA baseball team feels very fortunate

and honored to have had the opportunity to visit St. Jude and to partner with them in future fundraising events.

Oswalt likes his team’s work ethic By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com Brighton baseball coach Brian Oswalt, who begins his eighth season this week, noticed something out of the ordinary during some recent preseason scrimmages. “I’m used to looking out there and seeing a bunch of a juniors and seniors,” Oswalt said. “There were a couple of times this preseason when we didn’t have a senior out there.” That’s what happens when a team loses six seniors to graduation.

Nevertheless, there are some players returning for Oswalt with plenty of playing experience. Seniors Will Embry, Matt Carpenter, Cody Rogers and Tyler Cates all return, as does

senior catcher Jonathan Hawkins. Embry, Carpenter, Rogers and Cates will all see time on the mound. Cates is a guy who can play just about any position on the field. Junior Ryan Tomlinson, who will pitch and play first base, as well as junior outfielder Rusty Bouchie, also bring some experience to the lineup. Look for juniors Tr e n t

Tanner a n d Kyle Hayes to play in the outfield. Plenty of underclassmen will be in the mix as well. Sophomore Matt Scott will start at shortstop again this season and freshman Colton Hathcock will play second base and get a chance to contribute on the mound. Caleb Armour is a sophomore who will

play third base and also be part of a pitching staff that should be fairly deep this season. Nathan Newman, a freshman, can play several positions. “These guys work hard,” Oswalt said. “They’re a gritty bunch.” Brighton scrimmaged strong teams in the pre-

season like Briarcrest, Dyersburg and Bolton, and Oswalt said his young bunch was competitive. “We’re mighty young this year,” said Oswalt. “But I like the way they’re developing and working.”

The Covington Boxing Club competed in the West Tennessee Golden Gloves tournament last Friday and Saturday in Jackson. The local team entered fifteen boxers and won 12 championships and had three runners-up. We had all fifteen boxers in the final two of the fights that we lost in the finals were very close. We also had all 15 boxers in the finals. T w o of the fights that w e l a s t in the finals were very close. We also had two of our guys awarded the Best Bout trophies, Tyree Hill on Friday night and Kendrick Nesby on Saturday night. Nesby and Jordan Grant were selected as the Outstanding Boxers of the tournament. Latonio Grandberry, Darryl Smith Jr. and Demetrius Blaiano were awarded sportsmanship awards. Winning championships were Denzel Blevins, Justin Fisher, Elyah Parker, Preston Terry , Kenny Anthony, Anthony Campbell, Terence Currin, Tyree

Hill, Desmon Wakefield, Jordan Grant, Kendrick Nesby and Davon Bates. It was an outstanding effort by a good hardworking bunch of kids. Nesby, Terry, Hill, Bates, Anthony and Campbell will advance to the MidSouth Golden Gloves Tournament in Little Rock in two weeks. There will be boxers from all over coming in here Saturday, March 19 for our Big Kid Gloves Show. Every bout will be a championship bout. There will be teams f r o m Nashville, Columbia, Paris, Camden, Jackson, Memphis, Ripley and Poplar Bluff, Mo. The two main events will be Covington boxers Kenny Anthony (140 pounds) taking on Devon Sermons from Memphis and Anthony Campbell versus Triston Todd, also from Memphis. Both Todd and Sermons are seasoned boxers with a lot of boxing skills. There will also be several more Covington boxers in action. This should be one of the best boxing shows we have ever put on here in Covington. Our kids are coming off a good outing last week and are ready for this home show. Bell time will be 7:30 p.m. at the boxing arena.

A new chapter in an amazing childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story

Lady Cougars lost five seniors By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com Munford softball coach Glenn Goulder will take his softball team to the field this season without the services of five seniors who graduated last season. All of them played key roles. But he still likes his chances this season in a district that should be wide open. Senior Ashley Hobson returns to start at second base and probably brings the most experience to the field. Sami Jo Schulz, a sophomore, started last season at shortstop and

figures to make strong defensively strong up the middle. Junior Amanda Levine was a spot starter last season at catcher and will down that spot in 2011. The rest of the lineup will be largely untested. Paige Barnes, a junior, and sophomore Tara Comer will split the pitching duties this season. Whomever isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pitching will play first base. Sophomore Alex Stanford, who saw playing time last season, is nursing an injured knee. Her status this season is uncertain. Several other Lady Cougars who figure to

see time this year do not have a lot of varsity experience. Junior Paige Ridings and senior Marissa Deneka are projected as starters in the outfield. Sophomore Alex Turner is a speedy centerfielder and freshman Jodi Duncan looks like the starter at third base. Goulder realizes his team is inexperienced, but he still likes his squadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far as who is the favorite in the district is a guess,â&#x20AC;? Goulder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really been hitting the ball well in the preseason. I like our talent.â&#x20AC;?

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE CASH IN ON MODERN DAY GOLD RUSH! By Jason Delong

Gold and silver pour into yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roadshow due to highest prices in 40 years.

STAFF WRITER Yesterday at the Holiday Inn Express, hundreds lined up to cash in antiques, collectibles, gold and jewelry at the Treasure Hunters Roadshow. The free event is in Covington all week, buying gold, silver, antiques and collectibles. One visitor I spoke with yesterday said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbelievable, I brought in some old coins that had been in a little cigar box for years and some old herringbone necklacesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in less than fifteen minutes I left with a check for $700. That stuff has been in my jewelry box and dresser for at least 20 years.â&#x20AC;? Another gentleman

â&#x20AC;&#x153;ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S UNBELIEVABLE, I BROUGHT IN SOME OLD COINS THAT HAD BEEN IN A LITTLE CIGAR BOX FOR YEARS AND SOME OLD HERRINGBONE NECKLACESâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;IN LESS THAN FIFTEEN MINUTES I LEFT WITH A CHECK FOR $700.â&#x20AC;? brought in an old Fender guitar his fathar had bought years ago. The man said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dad had less than fifty bucks in that guitar.â&#x20AC;? The Roadshow expert that assisted him made a few phone calls and a veterinarian in Seattle, Washington bought the guitar for $5,700.00. The seller continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got another $150.00 for a broken necklace and an old class ring. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not every day that someone comes to town bringing six thousand dollars with your name on it.â&#x20AC;? Jeff Parsons, President of the Treasure Hunters Roadshow commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lots of people have items that they know are valuable but just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where to sell them. Old toys, trains, swords, guitars, pocket watches or just about anything old is valuable to collectors. These collectors are willing to pay big money for those items that they are looking for.â&#x20AC;? This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roadshow is the best place to get connected with those collectors. The process is free and anyone can bring items down to the event. If the Roadshow experts find items that their collectors are interested in, offers will be made to purchase them. About 80% of the guests that attend the show end up selling one or more items at the event. Antiques and collectibles are not the only items the Roadshow is buying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gold and silver markets are soaring,â&#x20AC;? says Archie Davis, a Roadshow representative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broken jewelryy and kly. I just gold and silver coins add up very quickly.

finished working with a gentleman that had an old class ring, two bracelets and a handful of silver dollars. His check was for over $650.00. I would say that there were well over 100 people in here yesterday that sold their scrap gold.â&#x20AC;? One gentleman holding his check for over $1,250.00 in the lobby of the event yesterday had this comment, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so happy I decided to come to the Roadshow. I saw the newspaper ad for the event and brought in an old German sword I had If you go to the Roadshow, you can cash-in brought back from World War II your items for competitive prices. Roadshow and some old coins, and here is representatives will be available to assess and my check. What a great thing purchase your items at the Holiday Inn Express, for our community. I am heading this week through Saturday, in Covington. home now to see what else I have that they might be interested in.â&#x20AC;? The Roadshow continues today starting at 9am.

'The Froggie Princess' opens tonight at 7 p.m. By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com

airy tales seem to prove themselves to be timeless pieces of literature for the young and old alike. Though this type of story is often geared toward children, adults can find them enchanting as well, especially in a nostalgic sense. Honoring this genre of storytelling, the Historic Ruffin Theater in Covington will host the play “The Froggie Princess,” presented by King Cotton, on March 17-20. The production is directed by Marissa Van Pelt and produced by Tiffany Conner. “This is my first play to direct,” said Van Pelt, who also teaches second grade at Covington Integrated Arts Academy. “I'm really excited for opening night and am looking forward to seeing the children perform.” True, children and young adults compose much of the talented cast who act out the story. This

humorous adaptation of the classic fairy tale “The Frog Prince” features a host of characters including a frog, a rose and a turtle. Nervous around girls, Marcus Baloopus, selects a frog to accompany him to his school’s Fire Ant Festival in spite of the poking, prodding and ridicule he receives from his classmates. A surprise ending concludes this fun and sweet tale of magic, humor and courage. “My favorite part of this experience has been seeing the kids develop these characters so well,” said Van Pelt. “It's gives me a good feeling to see them doing such a good job.” Van Pelt's position in this production marks a continuation of a long-running involvement in theater. For more than 12 years, she has been a part of a wide variety of productions at the Ruffin, having been raised by parents who

are a part of Tipton Arts Council. She broke in as a stagehand working backstage. After summoning enough courage, Van Pelt began playing various parts in plays such as "Steel Magnolias," "Miss Minerva and William Greenhill" and even the lead role in "Barefoot in the Park." Tim Birchfield designed the well-composed set. It included bringing in live trees and flowers donated by Arlington Florist & Gifts. Shane Niccum is contributing through directing light and sound while Debbie Case and Rachael Russell are helping out backstage. “The Froggie Princess” plays Thursday-Saturday, March 17-19 at 7 p.m. and on Sunday, March 20 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $9 for adults and $6 for seniors and students. They're available at The Freckled Frog.

CULTURE

OPENING THE BOX On Sunday, Sept. 12, 2010 the cornerstone box at Salem Presbyterian Church was opened for the first time since 1939. Inside were contents from 1911 and from 1939. Above left, the contents are displayed at Salem inside a shadowbox arranged by church member Karen Neal. Pictured inset is the actual box. At right, the business label pasted inside the box reads the name of metal worker C. A. Harsson and is signed by another Harsson as the maker. Photos by Tyler Lindsey

History revealed at Salem Presbyterian By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com A lot happens in 100 years. Therefore, many changes take place during its passing. Recently, the members of Salem Presbyterian Church in Atoka as well as community members were shown just how much can change in a century, reminding them of how far the community has come. On Sept. 12, 2010, the contents of a century-old cornerstone box were extracted and presented to the church's congregation. The lead box, fashioned in Covington by C. A. Harsson Sheet Metal Works, was originally placed in

B1.indd 1

the church's third sanctuary when it was built in 1910. Twenty-nine years later, in 1939, fire destroyed that building but the lead box remained intact and was transferred to the cornerstone of the present, fourth church in 1940. The Session of Salem Presbyterian Church asked member Karen Neal to organize the contents of the box into a permanent display, showing the history of the church and surrounding area. Neal carefully arranged and organized the documents and artifacts in a large shadow box featuring pictures, letters, articles, programs and even a Covington Leader issue from 1936 as well as other items of interest to Salem and Tipton County. At the heart of

the display rests a communion token from Salem's second church, affectionately remembered at the “Old Square Church.” Now that the 100-year-old record has been revealed, it's time to put away present examples of today's culture for yet another future opening. A replacement metal box has been inserted into the cornerstone of Salem Presbyterian Church with items intended to be of interest to Salem's membership in the year 2060, the year designated for the box's opening. Salem Presbyterian Church, located at 3400 Atoka-Idaville Road in Atoka, was organized in 1836. Rev. Charles Y. Todd has been Salem's pastor since 1972.

ARCHIVES Included in the time capsule was a June 18, 1936 issue of The Covington Leader, which included a story on Salem's centennial celebration. Seventy-five years ago, readers could purchase a special subscription to the paper for one dollar, which is the 2011 newsstand price of one edition.

Hi everyone, Happy St. Patrick's Day (especially if you're Irish)! St. Patrick was known as the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick's Day has been observed in the United States since early colonial times. The chief symbol associated with the day is the shamrock, a small plant whose leaves are divided into three lobes. According to legend, St. Patrick used the shamrock, which is now the national emblem of Ireland, to explain the Christian doctrine of the Trinity to the Irish people. Having the maiden name of Houlihan, I am of Irish descent myself. Yes, in my younger days I had that jet, bluish black hair. By this time this paper comes out, I will already have had my cataract surgery on one eye and then the other in two weeks. I understand there's nothing to it and you're in and out in minutes. I hope it's all factual. It's just as my old friends told me, “Oh Libby, it is just another sign of aging.” Of course, I said, “Oh thanks a lot.” Well my little Addie will start her softball games soon. They can't even start practice yet,

Church family life center on Saturday, March 5. Mr. Carl Harchfield was the oldest 91 years young. Several folks that attend Randolph Assembly of God Church were there. It's the 29th year they've been having it. Happy March birthday to Adam Gallager. He is Tim Gallager's son. Ray Suggs had a grandson at church with him Randolph Assembly on March 6. He attends school at Drummonds Elementary School. I want to say hello to Heaven Nicole Chapuis, Katherine Hanks and Elaine Hanks. Brenda Overbey had a birthday

due to all of this rain. It can't be too much longer. I feel so bad complaining about the rain when I think of all the devastation in Japan. If there was ever a time to be on our knees in prayer, it's now. Every time the news comes on, it is so hard to sit and watch the coverage. The reality of these circumstances are so heartbreaking. Only decades of time and our loving Savior can heal these families. Maybe in time our government will direct us in some way that we as individual citizens may assist in this recovery. We never know today what tomorrow may bring. Salem Presbyterian Church Worship is at 11 a.m. each Sunday morning. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. Everyone is always welcome. Everyone is invited to our Appalachia Mission Team Fundraiser this Sunday, March 20 after worship service.

Members of the planning committee are seeking information pertaining to the history of Smyrna Baptist Church. They need vintage photos of the church or members from years past. If you have old photos that you can loan to be scanned, please contact the church. The originals will be returned to you. The church is also seeking historical information or items that you'd be interested in loaning for use at the events. Photos and information need not be 200 years old to be of historical value. If you can help in any way, please call the church at 476-6178 or e-mail smyrnabc@bellsouth.net. Garland United Methodist Church will be holding revival on March 20-22. Jackie Fincher will be the guest speaker and there will be special singing each night.

country may never be the same. Let's all join together to keep this country and all those affected in our prayers. I can’t help but wonder if there’s a connection between the Japan earthquake and all the earthquakes in Arkansas as of late. If you relieve pressure in one spot might it cause pressure to be released somewhere else. There have been more than 800 quakes reported in Arkansas in the past six months, including a 4.7 which is the largest to hit the state in 35 years. Some people think that all these quakes are very possibly an after effect of natural-gas drilling. The gas companies are doing something called “fracking” (hydraulic fracturing) which is injecting water into the ground at high pressure to fracture the rock and release the gas that’s trapped within it. Salt water is a common by-product of the fracking process and the simplest solution is to inject the toxic wastewater back into the ground. Some scientists warn that the wastewater lubricating the surrounding rock could possibly lead to earthquakes or maybe it’s the “fracking” process itself. While debates continue, Arkansas has imposed an emergency suspension on the drilling of new injection wells. However, wells that were active before the suspension can remain in operation. I don’t know about you but I think maybe they should rethink this thing and stop injecting all the wells until they figure out the cause of the earthquakes or if it is just our planet's natural processes. I hope you have a wonderful week and thank you for reading. If you have any information for future articles please call me at 476-2683 or e-mail me at kellumeddie@yahoo.com.

ister, as she is hospitalized with pneumonia in Benton, Ky. Our fellowship group will meet this Saturday night in the home of Frank and Marlene Brown at 6 p.m. Happy birthdays this week go out to Makayla Bishop and Alexis Matlock. I hope they are both the greatest! We are so blessed by our brother, Tim Gatlin, in his decision to accept Christ as his Savior and put Him on in Baptism. We extend our sympathy to the Shankle family in the death of Mildred Lucille Kindrick, mother of Faye Shankle, grandmother of Richard Shankle and to Lee Graham in the death of his aunt, Della Cole. Della was also the mother of our former minister here at Covington, brother Leon Cole. In closing, getting all the clocks turned forward for our day light savings time to begin was quite a job. I still saw two more I had forgotten the first part of the week. I think we have them all now. Once we recover from the lost hour of sleep maybe we will begin to enjoy the real spring when it arrives. Have a great week everyone.

Rufus is a darling 7 month-old puppy who has been bounced around a lot... His original owner abandoned him at a local shelter when he was just a few months old, then after about 2 months of staying at the shelter, a very nice family adopted him. Unfortunately for him, they had a sudden family emergency and could not keep him after one day. Dogs 2nd Chance took him in and we are hoping to find him a permanent place to call home. Rufus is a well-behaved and laid back dog. He is very smart and trainable. He also plays Rufus well with other dogs.Rufus is in good health (although a bit little underweight), is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. He is available for adoption to a good home. If you believe you can give this darling a permanent loving home, please complete an application on the internet at:http://www.dogs2ndchance.org/adoption-application Application and adoption fees apply.

We were sorry to hear of Katarene Harber's accident on this past Saturday afternoon. It happened while she was gardening her flowers in her yard. She was placed in the hospital on Saturday. I spoke with her from there Sunday afternoon. She sounds fine. She's always been made out of “whit leather,” the good stuff! Our prayers are with you Ms. Kate!

It's a very cloudy Tuesday morning, just like Monday morning. I haven't checked the gauge yet on Sunday night and yesterday's rain but it's soggy outside. Highs in the upper 70's later this week though! Wow! Can't stop watching the scenes from Japan on the television. Horriffic. Just praying for them, and those nuclear reactors. They could affect the world. Little Lucy had a restful day yesterday, according to Kate's blog. I pray that they will be able to get over to St. Jude this week and start her healing process. She has everyone's prayers, as is indicated by all the pink and purple bows everywhere! I've never seen so much support for anything. Maybe American flags outnumber those bows! Maybe. I kept Lyla last Wednesday while the boys went to a sale at Wynne, Ark. She slept two hours, 45 minutes of our time together, but I held her while she slept so it was all good. Looking forward to her first birthday party next month! I'm remodeling the hall bathroom and repainted the trim last Thursday and cleaned. Todd Townsend installed new linoleum Friday afternoon and Saturday morning and a new countertop is coming today or tomorrow. It's an inexpensive redo - $400 for all of it, including labor and a little free touch-up painting by me. Voila! New bathroom! My dad, Kenneth Weir, came over Saturday for

er-in-law George's carwash. We saw "Rango" and I wouldn't take my children to see it. The "h-e-double-toothpicks" word was in it at least five times. I don't call that kid entertainment. When we came out of the theater, into that daylight stupor you have after a dark movie theater experience, I unlocked my car and walked to it. The cat pawprints were still on the hood and I told my dad, "These pawprints didn't wash off!" I was rubbing them off with my finger when a woman came up behind me and said, "That's not your car." Pop was already getting in the passenger seat! We found my car further down the row and saw her and her husband laughing at us as they drove by. Great! My grandmother, Evelyn Harrington's, drive-in opens this weekend in Calvert City, Ky.! Go to calvertdrivein. com and keep up with what's on. If you get on the Purchase Parkway in Fulton and head into Kentucky, it ends in Calvert City! There will be a Dairy Queen in front of you to the right. Take a left, to up to the next intersection on a hill and take a left and you're on the road the drivein's on. Can't miss it! Best hamburgers anywhere! and "Megamind" and "True Grit" are in this weekend. Double features all Summer! Jenni Langston remains in our prayers, as do Bonnie Holbrook, Larry Whaley II, Roy Randolph and Kenneth Mason. Michelle Laxton, Donna Sonwineski and Ginger Sallee are recov-

Sherrill or vice president Annette Burton. The drawing will be the week before Easter and tickets are $1. Good luck! Contact treasurer of Jamestown Community Health Organization (JCHO), Mary Burton, with your $25 yearly dues which are badly needed for Dickens Cemetery upkeep as well as college scholarships. On March 26 at 5 p.m., JCHO's second annual fundraiser, “It Takes Ten” will be held this year at the Covington Country Club. See JCHO's public relations person, Gwen Cooke, or contact program chairperson, Pam Cobbs Springfield, regarding this upcoming event. On Oct. 22, JCHO will once again shine at the Covington Country Club for its second annual “Night of Elegance.” Contact president Minister Pearl Andrews, vice president Katarene Harber or assistant treasurer Jessie Cookie with more information regarding this event along with any JCHO committee member. Happy birthday this week to Stacie Cobbs Tolbert and Mary Allen Gray on the 14th, Randall Word and Chris Grace on the 15th, Joann Burton and Gwen Draine Richardson on the 19th. Happy 30th anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. Jeffery Mosley Sr. on the 7th and happy 66th anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. Isiah Burton Sr. on the 8th. Let's remember, our other countries' plights at this time, Japan, Libya and Egypt, as well as our young men and women in our armed forces. Remember there is no time like the present to correct things that surely need correcting in the past! Until next time.

The Devotional at Covington Care will be on the 20th at 4 p.m. Happy Birthday this week goes to Makayla Bishop on March 13th and to Alexis Matlock (#1!) on the 18th! Sympathy is extended to Lee Graham in the death of his aunt, Della Cole. She was the mother of a former minister, Leon Cole. That family has my prayers. Congratulations to Mandy Otts Daniels and Heath Billings, who were married yesterday! Heath was severly injured in explosion last year and we are so glad that he has done this well. Many happy years together, Mandy and Heath! Y'all deserve it! This week's Pup Report: Three pups left and one is leaving today. Helen Moore, mother of Jenni Langston, and her husband, Michael, have agreed to take one and they are picking a pup out and up today. They are so cute! We have found out they are possibly a lab/chow/spitz mix! That accounts for the long hair on the gray and white one, the cutest! I talked to adopter Shelia Noack yesterday and she is housetraining her pup and has named him "Rowdy"! If you have a "bump in the night" story, call me! Getting them in for the next book!

It originated as a Roman Catholic holiday but is now observed by Protestant churches also. It became an official feast day in the early 17th century. Over time, Saint Patrick's Day has gradually become more of a secular celebration of Irish culture.

Cross Connection Public Safety Notice! Over the next few months, the warm weather will bring people outdoors to work in their yards and gardens and begin getting swimming pools ready. The Poplar Grove Utility District would like to ensure that our customers are aware of the dangers associated with these activities. A garden hose submersed in any liquid or attached to certain devices used to spray pesticides or herbicides forms a cross connection.

This condition, known as back siphonage, could cause a public health hazard. Devices are available to prevent this problem; however the best solution is to always be careful how you use your garden hose. Please help us provide a safe supply of water to all of our customers.

Native racer returns to NHRA By TYLER LINDSEY, tlindsey@covingtonleader.com

T

ipton County is represented well within the sport of drag racing. Indeed, good things are happening for popular National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Top Fuel driver Clay Millican, the pride of Drummonds. A six-time IHRA Top Fuel champion, Millican announced he will be returning to the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series action with primary sponsorship from the Memphis-based company Parts Plus. For 12 events this season, Parts Plus will team with MPE Motorsports as the primary sponsor of Clay Millican. “This announcement by Parts Plus is one of the most exciting things we’ve seen in a long time,” Millican said. “It’s awesome that they chose our team to get into drag racing for the first time in their company history… and they are a hometown company.” “Clay’s racing success is complemented by his appearance as the host of show on SPEED TV and MTV2, making him one of the most recognized faces in the sport,” said Mike Lambert, president of the Automotive Distribution Network. “This targeted exposure for our brand will be amazing as the Parts Plus dragster burns rubber down NHRA drag strips nationwide.” Clay and the team made their debut at Gainesville, Fla., March 10-13. “We’ve been getting as ready as we can be for this,” said Millican. “A lot of bits and pieces are being laid out in preparation.”

A broken rod in Sunday’s first round of the Gatornationals created havoc in the engine and slowed the Parts Plus Top Fuel dragster just about the time he thought he might be getting a win light for his new sponsors. Instead, the car slowed to 3.940 seconds at 296 mph to open the door for Shawn Langdon’s win with a 3.871 at 312.93. “We had a very good day,” Millican said. “ I wish we could’ve had a round win, but we had the motor problem. It dropped three cylinders and broke three rods. It just quit big time.” When asked if he feels any pressure, Millican laughingly said, “It comes from within. You just have to learn to deal with it. Race car drivers are show-offs at heart so it’s not so bad. However, there’s nothing easy about it. Now I have big people to answer to, and so, in that respect, it adds to the pressure a little bit.” Team owners Mark and Laura Pickens shared their enthusiasm at the prospects of such a sponsorship. “Their willingness to commit to our sport in such a tough economic time showed their visionary insight into the value of the NHRA fan base and the companies that support it. We are excited to enter this partnership,

I’m living, breathing proof as a professional racer from a small town that you can achieve your dreams.” Though his sights are set on loftier goals, Millican remembers where he came from and is proud of coming from Drummonds. “I’m a home boy.

Correspondents Dunlap Retirement Center

Kathy Keiter â&#x20AC;˘ 476-7014 Hello everyone! Hope youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all doing well and are extremely thankful to the Lord for this beautiful weather! Some people are thanking â&#x20AC;&#x153;Phil,â&#x20AC;? but I choose to thank God because I know He is the source of everything good. Oh man, are we ever enjoying this season out here at Dunlap! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so good to see our folks out walking in the yard again. Mr. Billy loves taking strolls on the grounds and turning over every leaf where he thinks just might be a pecan or an acorn underneath. We have several birthdays this

month. Two of our residents are Mr. Kenny Hughey last Friday, March 4, Ms. Beanie Beanblossom, March 7, and two of our staff members, Elaine Hanks on March 14, and Angie Hanks on March 16. Happy birthday to all of you! We hope you all have a wonderful celebration that day. Our community was so saddened to hear of our neighbors, Bob and Sandra Whitedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house catching fire. We have all tried to pitch in and do what we can. This is an amazing community! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so very glad Dunlap Retirement Center is right smack in the middle of it! They take care of us too. Bob and Sandra have been so good to us here at Dunlap, we would do anything we possibly could to help out. If you know them and there is anything you think you could do to help, please give me a call at 476-7014. We are so happy to have Mr. Freddie

TN officials ask legislature for stronger laws In Tennessee one drug is fueling the Meth epidemic and our top national ranking for the number of Meth labs. In Oregon and Mississippi Meth labs have become virtually extinct. In those states they have whipped Meth labs by passing laws making the drug available only by prescription. The Tennessee Public Safety Coalition is urging the Tennessee legislature to adopt this proven method to stop Meth labs in Tennessee by requiring a prescription for medicine containing that drug, pseudo-ephedrine, here in our state. Independent studies have shown the cost to Tennesseans of Meth

labs is as much as a billion and a half dollars per year. That does not include the pain and suffering inflicted on innocent men, women and children who come in contact with these labs. Significant reductions in Meth labs across Tennessee will free the limited resources of law enforcement to focus on the serious crimes that threaten our citizens daily. For further information call: Jeff Long, Sheriff, Williamson County Sheriff (615-790-5604) Mike Dunavant, 25th Judicial District Attorney General (731-635-5163).

Huggins back home, as he has been in the hospital since January. Welcome home, Mr. Freddie. We are so happy to have you back! We now have a new resident; her name is Ms. Suzette Johnson. Ms. Suzette is not new to Dunlap, she has lived here before, and so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like coming home to her. We welcome you back, dear! We also have two new residents in the apartments, Bob and Sandra Whited have moved in temporarily until they get their house rebuilt. We are so excited to have them, even though it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be for a long period of time. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so glad they are able to stay in the community. The season has come for us to seriously get to thinking about getting our tractor fixed. As you know, last year our tractor/finishing mower blew a rod through the block, but the Lord has truly blessed us to have Alan Byrd as our new maintenance man. We would like

to officially welcome him to Dunlap. He knows how to do everything. So we are grateful to have him aboard. Welcome, Alan. You came just in the nick of time. If anyone knows of anyone that needs a place to live, but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need assisted living or the nursing home, please give me a call. I have a room for you that you will love! I have one room in each building left, so if you have been considering it, now is the time to get on board. We are now on Facebook! Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of information and history on it so would you please look us up and friend us and if I can be of any help, please let me know! Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been having some trouble with our notes getting in so please bear with us! We think we have it figured out. I hope and pray you all have a blessed week and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to give someone a hug!

Baptist Hospice helps grant last wish In April 2010, Penny Maness, who was suffering from terminal tongue cancer, became a home health patient of ours, and I had the privilege of taking care of her. I would see her on a weekly basis to manage her implanted port, intravenous fluids and pain pump. I would always try to make her my last visit of the day so we could sit and talk, and we became very close friends. By December, the cancer had begun to take over her body and her health got progressively worse, so she was admitted to hospice. She requested that I continue to be her nurse, which was not a problem, as Baptist Home Care & Hospice nurses are cross-trained for both service areas. Ms. Penny and I would always talk about things we would like to do but never got the chance to do. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I came up with the idea of getting someone to sponsor a trip for her. With the help of our social worker, Gloria Johnson, we found the Make-a-

Dream Foundation. The Foundation sponsors trips for adults, similar to what the Make-a-Wish Foundation does for children. I had been in contact with the Foundation since September in the hopes of securing a trip for Ms. Penny, and in early December, her last wish was made a reality. On Dec. 6, 2010, I had the opportunity to accompany Ms. Penny and her husband, Joey, and son, Joseph, to Nashville, where we had a two-night stay at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, which was decorated beautifully for Christmas. Ms. Penny was not able to sit up for the entire trip, so Dick Ritchey, owner of King Cotton Ford in Covington, sponsored a van for us to use on the trip. While in Nashville, we went on a dinner cruise with live music down the Cumberland River on the General Jackson showboat and toured the Hall of Trees, which held 57 Christmas trees decorated by different businesses.

We also celebrated Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18th birthday in Nashville. While Ms. Penny rested in her room, Joey took Joseph to the Rivergate Mall so he could spend his birthday money. I think one of her favorite things about the trip was the fact she was able to eat some Haagen Dazsâ&#x201E;˘ ice cream. She hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to eat for some time due to her terminal illness. The most important thing to her was being able to spend some quality time with her family during the holidays. Sadly, three days after we returned from our trip, we had to say goodbye to this very special lady. In my more than 20 years in nursing, this trip with my new friend and her family was one of the most rewarding experiences in my nursing career. It reaffirmed that hospice is not about dying; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about living. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about living life to the fullest until the last breath. I am just proud I can be a part of something so special for people during the toughest times in their lives.

Julie Morganelli of Atoka is pictured with her dog Chloe is very pleased with the results from her minimally invasive thyroidectomy that left virtually no scar on her neck.

Minimally invasive surgery leaves minimal scarring Memphis, Tenn. No one wants a visible reminder of a surgery, and thanks to medical advances, technology now gives surgeons a way to leave virtually no scar on the front of the neck after thyroid surgery. “With recent advancements in endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques it is possible to use endoscopes to visualize the interior of the neck and take the thyroid gland out through a very small incision measuring just about an inch in length,” explained Sandeep Samant, M.D., a head and neck surgeon at Methodist University Hospital. “By making such a small incision in the neck, it is barely visible and you only really notice it if you know to

look for a scar.” Before the minimally invasive approach, the incision left after a thyroid surgery was three inches or longer, which was quite obvious since it went across almost the entire front of the neck. There are several reasons that require patients to have one or both thyroid glands removed, including cancerous and benign nodules, large glands, or overactive glands. Julie Morganelli had a nodule on her right thyroid gland removed which turned out to be benign. “The thing I like the most about this procedure is that the incision is very, very small,” said Morganelli. With the smaller incision, most patients get to go home the same day. Morganelli did go home

the same day and had a quick recovery which is typical. “I had the surgery on a Wednesday and I was able to return to work on Monday,” she said. Dr. Samant says not everyone is a candidate for minimally invasive thyroidectomy. If a patient is sick, has a very large gland or has cancer extending beyond the gland, that patient is not a candidate for same day surgery.
