Bond set at $750K for Jacob Brown Accused murderer still in custody By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com

A six-figure bond has been set for Jacob Brown, the 16-year-old accused in the gruesome beating death of a Munford couple. After a bond hearing on Friday, April 8, Tipton County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Walker III set bond for the teen at $750,000. By comparison, bond for the last juvenile who was tried for

murder as an adult in Tipton County, Alejandro Gauna, was set at $1 million. Gauna was convicted of killing Tennessee state trooper Calvin Wayne Jenks on Jan. 6, 2007. Brown has been indicted for the first degree murders and especially aggravated burglaries of James “Ed” and Bertha “Bea” Walker in January. He confessed to investigators that

he beat the elderly couple with an aluminum bat inside their Wylie Drive home after skipping school. Though a doctor testified Brown suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, in March Brown was ruled competent to stand trial. He will be tried as an adult, but because he was 16 at the time of the murders, he cannot face the death penalty.

District Attorney General Mike Dunavant said the state has asked for life without parole upon conviction. In the bond order, Judge Walker state the probability of conviction is “high.” The order also states Brown’s mother, Lisa Chrisman, has custody of him; his father lives in Tipton County and lives in the same neighborhood as the

SPORTS

Covington comes alive, beats MHS By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com The Covington Lady Chargers’ bats came alive in their first meeting of the year against Munford last Thursday at home. Covington scored single runs in the first two innings before putting up seven in the third to take control en route to an 11-1 win in five innings. Covington sisters Gabby and Autumn Glenn were the story.

Autumn, a junior, struck out three, held Munford to six hits and also singled and scored two runs. “I just went out and pitched like I normally do,” said Autumn, who improved to 6-1 on the season. “They’re a county rival, so we always like to beat them.” “Our offense had been struggling, but we did better tonight,” said Gabby, a sophomore who went 2 for 3 at the plate. “We came through and had a lot of good hits … We like beating them more than any other team. We just try harder.” Jamie Hollingsworth and Ryleigh Deverell led off the decisive third inning with singles for Covington. Kayla Butler drove in a run with a single and Jessica Ashburn followed with a two-run single, chasing Munford starter Sami Jo Schulz. Later in the inning with the bases loaded and two outs, Munford’s centerfielder mishandled a long fly ball off the bat of Autumn Glenn. Three runs scored, putting Covington ahead 8-0. An RBI-single from Hollingsworth capped off the scoring in the inning. Covington (12-1-2) tacked on two more runs in bottom of the fifth off another Munford error to end the game. It was the third straight loss

‘We like beating them more than any other team’ for Munford (12-3) after starting the season undefeated. “Covington’s a good team,” Munford coach Glenn Goulder said. “You can’t take anything away from them. But we’re not playing real well right now. I’m not sure what it is. When things get a little rough we’re folding our tents, and that worries me.” Covington finished with 11 hits. Hollingsworth was 3 for 4 and eight of Covington’s players had at least one hit in the game. Schulz and Jodi Duncan each had a pair of hits for Munford and Paige Barnes drove in Munford’s lone run in the fourth inning. Covington coach Martha Lawler said her team’s hitting appears to be catching up with its pitching. “I was proud of our hitting,” she said. “We had been struggling a bit … Autumn and Gabby, I just alternate them (pitching). I don’t think it will ever come down to pitching that will lose a ballgame for us.”

Sales tax collections on the rise By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com

Since the US entered a recession at the end of 2007, dropping the deepest in November 2008, Tipton County joined West Tennessee and a nation who felt the repercussions of the economic lethargy. While it’s believed the US is in recovery, recently, county officials received a sign that it may indeed be light they see at the end of the tunnel. In March, the Tipton County finance committee confirmed a 4.45-percent increase in sales tax revenue from August 2010-March 2011 when compares to the same period a year earlier. “This increase is good to see not only in terms of increasing funds for the county, but it’s a tell-tale sign, in the forefront, that our economy is on the mend,” said budgets and accounts director

Bruce Petty. “The more spending we see could mean a healthier economy.” The total sales tax collected in August-March of 2009-2010 amounted to $4,977,474. In August-March of 2010-2011, the total amount lurched forward 4.45 percent to $5,198,992. A substantial method that citizens see a return in their sales tax payments in Tipton County lies in the school system. At a rate of about 9.75 percent, Tipton County citizens pay a sales tax on purchases. Of that 9.75 percent, 2.25 percent of the sales tax of purchases made inside the county is funneled to the county. The Tipton County Board of Education then receives half of that 2.25 percent, or 1.125 percent of the entire sales tax. This money is used for classroom advantages and used firsthand in the educational experiences of students.

According to these rates, Tipton County, getting $2,804,434, and its board of education, seeing $2,570,286, received nearly $100,000 more revenue each this year than last year due to increased overall sales tax revenue. Most noteworthy is the rate of change from two years ago to last year and from last year to this year. From the August-March portion of 2008-2009 to the same period in 2009-2010, sales tax revenue seen by Tipton County decreased 1.32 percent, while from last year to this year, a 3.34-percent increase was welcomed. “It could very well show that this economy is coming out of the recession,” said Petty. “Slowly but steadily, it’s improving. Sales tax increase is among the first signs and indicators that the economy is getting better.”

Covington lines up spring activities By SHERRI ONORATI Special to The Leader

For many of us, spring is the time for cleaning and renewal and the city of Covington is no exception. During Tuesday’s bi-monthly meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, Mayor David Gordon announced several community clean-up dates including the annual Covington Clean Up/ Fix Up which begins on April 30 and concludes with the “Walk Across Covington,” the city-wide clean-up effort, on Saturday, May 7. Volunteers are asked to meet at the city maintenance shop on Ripley Street by 8 a.m. More information may be found on the city’s website, www.covingtontn.com. The city will also hold a Frazier Park clean up on April 30, beginning at 8 a.m. Volunteers are needed to help make clean-up of the 10 acre park a success. For more information contact Covington Parks and Recreation at 476-3734. “I want to encourage you to come help us,” said Gordon. Springtime in Covington is not just for cleaning but its also for having fun. Gordon also announced the city’s annual free concert series held on the historic square will return on May 7 and will run every Saturday night from 7-9 p.m. for eight weeks. The beloved event starts off this year’s concert series with local musician Ronnie Twisdale playing hits from the 60s and 70s. The annual Covington March for Babies will be held on April 30 from 8 a.m. til noon. Walkers are asked to meet at Shelton Park

where the route will take participants through Covington’s beautiful historic district before ending back at Shelton Park for the closing ceremonies and picnic. For more information contact Community Director Jeannie Patrick at (731) 668-1023 or walk co-chairman, Jan Phillips at 837-7282. The 2011 American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Tipton County will hold their signature fundraising event beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 6 to 6 a.m. on Saturday, May 7 at Cobb Parr Memorial Park. Contact Courtney Goodell at 725-8632 for more information. There will be a Team Lucy benefit 5K run/walk held in Covington on May 21 at 10 a.m., beginning and ending at Covington High School. The benefit is to rally support and funds for 5-year-old local resident Lucy Krull, who is battling brain cancer. For more information on the race or to enter, contact race coordinators Laura Dawson at 355-3580, Nicole Hensley at 4823579, Georgia Glass at 590-9553 or Emily Richardson at 568-0512. City Recorder-Treasurer Jere Hadley had good news to report to the board - the awarding of two grants totaling $110,000 for the city’s municipal airport. The first, is a $70,000 grant to update the airport layout plan. The sec-

ond grant is for $40,000 and will enable the city to remove trees at the south end of the runway for safety and visibility. Both of the grants are 90/10, which means the city is responsible for 10 percent of the money needed, while the state covers the remaining 90 percent. Alderman Tommy Black remarked that approved Ordinance 1613 which reduced the solid waste charge from $18 to $10 per month for each additional residential container and collection will be a great benefit for residents. The reduction of charges begins at the start of the next billing cycle. “It’s one of the best bangs for the buck going around here,” said Black. “I think that’s really going to help those who need one and it’s not something you have to have all the time, just when you need it,” adding that there is no contract established. Residents can keep the extra containers for as long as they need them and return them at any time. Ordinance 1614, which amends the Covington Municipal Zoning Map to rezone property on Old Brighton Road, Muellar Brass Road, Fox Hollow Run, Meadowview Cove and Cottonwood Way from R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to R-3 (High Density Residential) was approved on the first reading, with one nay vote by Alderman John Edwards. The public hearing for Ordinance 1614 will be held on May 9 at 5:30 p.m. The Covington Board of Mayor and Aldermen is held the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. The meeting will be on Tuesday, April 26.

TRA baseball to host benefit concert By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com

Most baseball teams have a gameplan and that plan includes focusing on batting average pitching and fielding stats and, overall, working together as a team. At Tipton-Rosemark Academy, the high school baseball team has one other focus in charity. On Saturday, April 23 from 5:30-7:30, the TRA Rebels will hold a benefit concert at the Rebel football field to raise money for St. Jude, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the TRA fine arts department. Tickets are only $5 and can be purchased at the gate or in advance at the school. All proceeds go to these causes. TRA headmaster John Scott, whose grandson has cystic fibrosis, is familiar with the hardships of the disease. The TRA baseball program wants to reflect that recognition and support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. “We’re splitting up

the proceeds to help as many things as we can. Our team has hit it off well with those at St. Jude during our tour last February,” said head baseball coach Brad Smith. “We want to support the efforts against cystic fibrosis. Also, our fine arts department is head-and-shoulders above others.” Up-and-coming country singer Nat Oliver, who is a 2000 graduate of TRA, will showcase her talents by singing songs from her recently recorded debut album. Oliver anxiously anticipates the concert, the release date for her self-titled album. She will begin at 6 p.m. after an opening act from 5:30-6 p.m. by students from TRA’s fine arts department. “My mom wrote the songs on the album, so it was very special to me to record it,” said Oliver. “It’s also for a wonderful cause so I’m excited.” Oliver was more than willing to donate her talents. Her sister is employed at St. Jude and

Lalainia White, TRA fine arts teacher, taught voice lessons to her. Oliver grew up in a musical home. Growing up, Oliver absorbed musical tendencies from her mother who played guitar and wrote and from her musically inclined father who has always sung. Even her grandmother was a pianist during her upbringing. “I grew up in that atmosphere and developed a passion,” she said. “It never went away.” One day, she and her mother thought about collaborating to cut a record. After deciding to go for it, she spent a year with Noise Factory Records and a group of volunteer musicians, some who have played with the well-known rock bands Breaking Benjamin and Three Doors Down. Oliver said, “At first, I was nervous during the recording process. Everybody was so different, but I soon realized that we were more alike in the end than I thought.”

Her album will be on sale for $10. The baseball teams already has some pretty deep ties with St. Jude, having toured the hospital in February. It was in December 2010 that head baseball coach Brad Smith decided he wanted to establish a connection with St. Jude. “It’s a wonderful place,” he said. “I want to convey to my players the importance of doing things for others who may not have it as good as we do. Unlike a lot of us, those at St. Jude are fighting for their lives.”

BROWN

Continued from A1 couple Brown is accused of murdering. Brown, being unemployed and currently in custody, has neither income nor assets with which to make bond. He is still in custody in a Shelby County detention facility. Though he will be tried as an adult, he cannot be housed with adults until his conviction or his 18th birthday, said a spokesperson for the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office. Tipton County does not currently have a juvenile detention facility and juveniles are typically housed in Memphis. If released, Brown would live with his father in Munford and, because his father works, Brown would be unsupervised. The order also states there is a “high likelihood” Brown would pose a risk of danger to the community. His trial is set to begin this summer.

not enough. First of all, the emergency hand brake on the left side under the dash, would be pulled up so hard, that it was almost impossible to mash the release button. Otherwise, the car wouldn’t move. A couple of times Mrs. Cole and a few of the neighbors were late for the social because she couldn’t release the button. A series of events had to take place in orderly fashion before you could hit the road. First, turn on the key, then depress or push in the clutch with your left foot all the way to the floorboard which was about one half mile for Mrs. Cole. She was a little short lady that had to sit on a pillow to even touch the clutch, brake and gas pedal. Next, hit the starter button. Well, this was a little ‘stob’ sticking up out of the floorboard to the right and at the top of the gas pedal. The trick was to give it a little gas with the heel of your right foot, hold the clutch in, grip the steering wheel real hard, ’cause you were scared, and stomp on the starter. Hopefully, the car would fire up, however it could require several times. If everything fell in place, the next trick was to make

the turn at the bottom of the driveway. This was another interesting project. Back then, there was no such thing as power steering, and it took Charles Atlas to turn the steering wheel. This caused a few ditches to be ‘cleaned out’. If and when Mrs. Cole finally got going, there was the trip to pick up Mrs. McCalla about a mile away. Luckily Mrs. McCalla had a circle driveway, so this did help and she always got in the front seat since she was the first to be picked up. Now back toward town. There would be a couple of stops to make. Momma, Mrs. Thompson, and Mrs. Wylie would be standing out beside the road with their cookies and drinks for the church social. Their ever present purses dangling from their arms anticipating the future get together and they’d crawl in the back seat. For a while Mrs. Cole would try to make three stops to pick up each in front of their respective houses. That changed later on and became only one stop at a central location. Why???? Seems like at every stop Mrs. Cole had to go through the entire routine again of braking, shifting, stopping and

starting. At every stop she had to push in the clutch, hit the brake, knock the gear shift into neutral and start over. Shifting gears except when the motor was running was next to impossible. Since it was so hard to shift from first into second gear, sometimes she would accidentally try to put it in reverse, causing a gut wrenching, grinding noise. Well, all the ladies would panic and she’d hit the brake and come to a screeching halt. Only to start over. This was bad enough, but when there are four ladies pointing, leaning over the seat trying to instruct her, this was hilarious. Understand, none of them could drive as well and certainly not any better. When Mrs. Cole and her riders did make it to the two way stop they’re embarking on another trip. Being the fine Christian lady she was, no way would she run the stop sign. But, when she stopped, sometimes she would ‘forget’ to change gears and try to start off in high gear. Riding the clutch and floor boarding the gas, this brand new black Chevy would buck, jump, snort, belch, cough and usually, she’d kill the motor. Of PLEASE SEE RAISIN', PAGE A5

The tort reforms will provide stability in the legal system and ensure lawsuit abuse does not become a reality in Tennessee. The bill has been a major cornerstone of the Republican Majority’s jobs package, with the Administration stressing the need for the proposal in order to create a jobs-friendly environment in Tennessee. The reforms set in stone much-needed stability so businesses in Tennessee will be able to adequately budget. Republicans have fought for several years to pass various tort reform measures, and are extremely pleased to see the bill moving forward. The bill will now be heard in the full Judiciary Committee. Republicans Pass Tough Sex Offender Registry Legislation Early in the week, House Republicans overwhelmingly passed a reform to the criminal code that closes a loophole that allows sexual offenders to find refuge. The bill requires all sexual offenders who are incarcerated, but who have not yet registered as a sexual offender or violent sexual offender, to be registered in the institution in which they are incarcerated by no later than Aug. 1. Effectively, the bill increases public safety as it will catalogue and publicize the sexual offenders around the State. It ensures those who have been convicted of a sexual offense have to sign a TBI registration form. The TBI then takes the person's information and places it into the sexual offender database. The Republican sponsor of the legislation Barrett Rich stated, “This is an important move for our General Assembly. It reinforces our commitment to increase safety for Tennessee families. I have seen the destruction and detrimental effects sexual abuse can have on victims. The fact our law currently allows some criminals to legally continue harassing their victims is unacceptable. Our majority is committed to preventing further victimization of Tennesseans by the worst kind of criminals.” Republicans Enact Major Initiatives for Election Reform On Thursday, the General Assembly passed major legislative initiatives meant to reform how elections are conducted and administered in the Volunteer State. Taken together, the bills clarify the Tennessee Code to make it consistent with legal precedence that has governed election commissions. The bills also define the responsibilities of administrators of elections and provide greater local oversight over how elections are conducted. These bills ensure there is a concrete route for dealing with concerns raised by election observers.

DEMOCRAT REPORT

In-state contract bill hires Tennesseans By REP. JIMMY NAIFEH A bill that would create Tennessee jobs by hiring in-state contractors first, passed a major hurdle this week, said Naifeh House Bill 811 simply says that if, within a certain percentage, an outof-state contractor comes in on a bid lower than a Tennessean, the contract would go to the in-state contractor first.

“We need jobs in Tennessee; it’s that simple,” said Naifeh (D-Haywood & Tipton Counties). “Often bids that are slightly less than a Tennessee contractor go out of state. We need to take care of Tennessee first.” The bill says that if a Tennessee bid is within 10 percent of a lower out-ofstate bid on a contract of $1 million, the bid would

go to the Tennessee contractor. Bids would also go to Tennessee if the in-state contractor is within:

RAISIN'

Continued from A4 course, all the riders were directing her and probably driving her crazy. One time she got excited and ran the stop sign and a truck had to take to the churchyard to miss her. She explained later, “ I did stop, he should not have been in my way.” A few times when Mrs. Cole killed the engine, she ground the battery down or flooded it, which was easy to do. Mr. Buck, who ran the local grocery store, would be ready to assist, for he knew what was coming. When the car stalled, Mr. Buck would just tell the ladies to go to the church that he’d handle the situation. He’d crank the car and take it to the parking lot and position it so it would be easy to turn around. After the church social, the ladies would pile in the car and go through the same ritual. The only difference was on the way back, there was no stop sign, so this did help. But, due to the lack of power steering and needing to turn right Mrs. Cole would start turning about ten feet too soon, almost run into

the ditch and the light pole. Then she would cross over and almost hit the stop sign. But she never did. They are headed home. After dropping off the neighbors, the last problem was trying to get in the driveway. A time or two she made it part of the way and ran into the hog wire fence and killed the engine. So she just got out and let Mr. Cole have it. More than once, she left the key on and ran down the battery. After that, she parked in the road and waited until Mr. Cole got home from work to put the car in the garage for safe keeping. After all this, what is safe? I’ll bet that car is happy and relieved. This weekly event was big for us kids. We’d hide and watch, but boy no one ever said anything. You don’t have to ask why??? Things sure have changed with all the automatic options on the new cars. Do you ever wonder how youngsters would survive if they had to go through the same events? Brings Back some Good Memories only in the OLE South------GLORY!!!!!

deferred vehicle, such as a traditional IRA, that earned a hypothetical 7% average annual return. After 30 years, you’d end up with a little more than $117,000, before you started paying taxes on withdrawals. But if your 30-year mortgage freed up enough cash for you to contribute $300 a month to that same IRA, earning that same 7% average annual return, you’d accumulate more than $350,000 after 30 years, before taxes. That’s a big difference — and the extra money could perk up your retirement lifestyle considerably. Keep in mind, of course, that these examples don’t reflect the performance of any available investments. Also, you will have to pay taxes when you start taking with-drawals from a traditional IRA, and any withdrawals you make before you turn age 59• might be subject to a 10% penalty. • Larger or smaller down payment? The big-

ger your down payment, the smaller your monthly payments, and the more you may have available to invest each month. But if you go with a smaller down payment, you most likely will initially have more money available for other purposes, such as paying down debt or purchasing investments. You’ll have to compare the alternatives carefully. In fact, you’ll have to compare the options for each question we’ve looked at because mortgage issues have an emotional component as well as a financial one, and only you can make the decisions that fit your situation. So think about your choices today, as they can have a big impact on your life tomorrow. This article was written by Edward Jones and is advertorial for financial advisor Steven J.

Tolerance and stupidity

Wooten Tractor Co.

2031 Highway 51 South • Covington , TN 38019

Phone : 476-2631 WOODS

SALES & SERVICE

Tolerance is a virtue when used judiciously and a bane when pushed to extremes. Certainly all of us should be willing to allow, yea, even hold sacred, the right of the individual to choose how he worships. Our political landscape includes one Senator who is a self-avowed socialist and those who are very much right of center. Tolerance is not only good it is necessary for a society as diverse as ours. So, where does the stupidity come in? Tolerance is wrong when it becomes an excuse for perversion, sin, and wickedness. It seems that we are at that tipping point in the United States. Somehow, with some form of convoluted reasoning, that which the Bibles declares without any condition as sin has become a star cause of some in the civil rights movement and the extreme liberals of Hollywood. Just recently, awards were given for films that glorify and attempt to mainstream the sin of homosexuality. Under Old Testament law the penalties for such activity were severe. Under the New Testament, though still condemned as sin, we use a different approach. Our goal is to win anyone and everyone to the Lord, as the Bible declares, “And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” In First Corinthians, chapter six, verses nine through eleven, the Bible states, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” However, we are forbidden from taking a position that this is an alternative lifestyle. No doubt some who read this will call me intolerant and bigoted. So be it. What is sin is wrong, and I, for one, will not sign a peace treaty with the Devil. The opinions of those who disagree with the liberal elitists are declared shameful and cheers go up for those who stand up for sin. Intolerant, is their cry, all the while showing their own intolerance by belittling the closely held principles of the Christian faith. Christians do not seek the eradication of sin by incarcerating or killing sinners. Love and compassion should be shown to all who are trapped by sin, whatever that sin should be. We seek to win to them to a saving relationship with Christ. My fear is for the generation coming up behind us. An attitude of tolerating any and every thing could lead them to believe that anything goes. In America, you have the right to believe as you wish, live (within certain parameters) as you choose, and to agree or disagree with any opinion, politician, or religion. There is coming a day, however, when that shall end. While it is incumbent upon us to get along here on earth

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

with our fellow man, that tolerance cannot reach the level of condoning that which the Bible condemns. The Bible is true and every one of us will have to give account of himself to God. Dr. Freeman J. Weems III, Pastor First Baptist Church of Atoka.

Hi everyone, Sure hope you got to see the blue skies and rainbow Monday afternoon. Finally as we were going home for the day after being in Memphis and in some very heavy rain all day we approached the Tipton County line and there it was. Of course, it was in and out of the clouds. But it was a beautiful gift after clouds and rain for several days. Well, my twin daughters, Terri Barber and Sherri Kidd, who turned 40 on April 9 and my granddaughter, Whitney Barber, who's 17, all took a girls' weekend out on the town. Sherri got us a spa package at the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs, Ark. I had been there before, but it was a great place for them to spend their 40th birthday. We all had a ball. The hotel has a band in the lobby every Friday night and we sat around and watched all the old people dance for a long time and finally an 85-yearold gentleman came over to Whitney and took her hand for a slow dance. Her eyes looked back at us like, “Please stop him, Mom and Mimi.� She finished and then came back over and sat in the back of our table where he could not see her. Then he came and got me. I found out later he lives within walking distance of the hotel and is there every Friday night. It really was a lot of fun watching them. Of course, the next day we all had out hot baths and massages. It was the first time for all of this for them. I would say it's a birthday they will remember for sometime. Of course, we walked the streets and went in probably most all the shops downtown the next day. Good girl memories! Congratulations to Adam Teems. We wish him good luck as he goes to Dallas, Texas this week to compete, by invitation, in the World Sport Stacking Championships. Two hundred of the top stackers in the world will meet to compete. Better known as cup stacking, the object is to see who can upstack and downstack a set of 12 cups the fastest. There are three different events: 3-3-3 where the object is stacking 9 cups in three stacks of three, 3-6-3 where the object is stacking 12 cups in two stacks of three

He had a sister named Louise and their mother was Eva and and

husband Randy just celebrated their 26th anniversary and it was better this year because last year she and Randy celebrated while she was in hospital. Teresa would also like to say Happy Birthday to Donna Anderson. Shanna and Adam were both home this weekend from school. Shanna, Kelly and Paula were having a yard sale in the parking lot of The Station. Most of the family was here, including my Mom and Dad, John and Nadine Kellum. We were all in the office when in comes my nephew David Kellum and his wife Ashley. David had just arrived back home from his second tour (and we are hoping his last) in Afghanistan. We had been told that he was coming home on March 23rd but his return kept being delayed. It was a complete surprise when he and Ashley walked in.

I don’t think we’ll ever forget the look on Daniel Kellum’s face when he pulled into the parking lot and out walked his brother, David. No one had a camera handy to capture the moment. Needless to say our entire family, especially David’s parents, John and Tina Kellum are so happy. Welcome home, David! Burlison City Council held their monthly meeting on April the 12th. Most of the meeting centered around the leaky roof on the town hall. I have checked with an attorney about the possibility of pursuing legal action against the Green Roofing Company that put the coating on for the city last year but still haven’t heard back from their office yet. The Council decided to try one more time to have some repairs done and if this doesn’t work, we

at 10:00 a.m. and will be over around 3:00. This is our spring fundraiser where we have hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and drinks for a donation to Dunlap. And all kinds of other things like gospel singing groups, cake auction, Ms. Patsy’s famous fried pies, booths set up with handmade goodies and crafts from community folks, all kinds of fun things! We’ll even have games for the kids, train rides, face painting being done by Ms. Libby Click in the gazebo, so come on out see what all we have this year. Please plan to come and enjoy a day of family fun, food and fellowship. This is a family day, so please come and bring your family, and maybe even your Sunday school class, as far as that goes, just bring your whole church out here that day. That’s the 14th of May, 10-3, mark it down on your calendar and come on out and join us! I want to say thank you to so many people who have contributed to Dunlap this past week as we have more than normal expenses this month and will have in the next couple months! We have had to replace 3 air conditioning units, 1 furnace and we are going to have to buy another furnace for Hunter Hall. But the

most exciting thing that happened this past week is that the Lord provided us a 61 inch wide cut, Zero Turn Snapper mower!!! Nice new and shiny red!!! Oh how Alan enjoys his job just a little more now than before when he was having to ride a little Murray lawn mower and a push mower to cut these 19 acres. Whew-wee, right Alan???? I’d like to give special thanks to Carla Hanks, Martha Fernandez and David Haddad for being so diligent to see that we got the help that we needed. We need more residents, so if you know of anyone that no longer needs to be living alone, but does not need a nursing home or an assisted living facility, we would love to be your place!! Please give me a call at 476-7014, and we’ll set up a tour. Don’t forget to mark your calendar for our Spring Fundraiser on Saturday May 14th 10-3. Until next week, God bless you all, be nice to everyone you meet, and don’t forget to give God the glory when you see that He has answered your prayers!! I know I can think of several things that my God has answered my prayer just this past week!!! Praise Him!!!!

Debra Poiner came by the center to visit us. It was good to see her. The service recipients watched a movie called Bambi in Miss Robin Martin's room. Everybody has been working on their outcomes. One of our service recipients is under the weather. We hope Heather Webb gets to feeling better soon,

might have to replace the roof with new metal. Also discussed was a repair needed on Kellum Lane. The shoulder of the road has eroded and the pavement is actually sinking. It was decided by the Council that we would contact a contractor to start work on fixing this problem. That’s the good news. The bad news is that Kellum Lane may have to be close for a few days to do the repair work. Thanks for reading and I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

It's a beautiful coolish Tuesday morning after days in the high 80's and storms yesterday. Back in the 70's now and I'm happy about that! I'll be glad when this tornado season is over. Prayers go out for all those who had terrible, terrible damage in their towns and communities over the past few days. This week's Farm Report: Planting corn! I'm so excited! We haven't had anything but beans for years, and only cotton before that. I'm looking forward to watching corn grow. We had Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Saturday to spray and plant, then rain yesterday knocked us out of the field, with storms coming in Thursday night, so welcome to planting time in

Lady Cougars defeat Lady Chargers By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com Last Thursday Covington defeated Munford handily, 11-1. The two rivals met again Saturday night in the final of the Covington High Softball Tournament, and Munford earned a measure of revenge. Senior Ashley Hobson and sophomore Alex Turner each had two hits and an RBI for Munford and junior pitcher Paige Barnes took care of the rest in a 2-1 win. Barnes (13-2) got into a little bit of trouble in the top of the sixth inning, which was the last of the game with the time limit expired. Covington’s Autumn Glenn led off the inning with triple off the right field fence and scored on

a Ryleigh Deverell single to trim the lead to 2-1. Deverell advanced to second base on a ground out, but Barnes kept her there by striking out Whitni Cook to end the game. Two days after making numerous costly errors against Covington, Munford (18-3) played flawless defense Saturday night. “I wish I could tell you what it was,” Munford coach Glenn Goulder said about his team’s improved play. Munford went 5-0 in the tournament. “If I could I would write a book about it. It’s like a switch. When they turn it on they can be pretty good. When they turn it off they can be pretty bad. It was on today.”

Munford got the scoring started in the bottom of the third when Sami Jo Schulz and Hobson led off the inning with singles. Turner drove Schulz in with Munford’s third straight single to stake her team to a 1-0 lead. In the fourth Paige Ridings came up with a two-out single, advanced to second on a Covington error and scored on Hobson’s single. Hobson finished 2 for 2 and Turner was 2 for 3, accounting for four of Munford’s six hits. Both players were fired up about performing better against Covington this time around. “It felt good,” Turner said. “We played a lot better today. We really wanted to beat them because of that loss.” “We had a lot of confi-

dence in ourselves today,” Hobson said. “Our hitting was a lot better and our defense was a lot better. We didn’t give up out there today.” Sophomore Gabby Glenn (8-1) pitched well for Covington (16-2-3), allowing just six hits, walking one and striking out three, but took her first loss of the season. Covington defeated Dyersburg 8-7 in a wild semifinal game that took over two hours. Munford breezed to a 4-0 semifinal win over Halls. “It took a lot out of us,” Covington head coach Martha Lawler said. “It took a lot out of me. But I don’t want to take anything away from Munford …We beat them 11-1 the other day and I knew it was a fluke.”

Cougars fall to Dyer County By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com One bad inning was too much for the Munford baseball team to overcome Tuesday night at home against Dyer County in District 13-AAA action. Trailing 4-0 in the bottom of the fifth, Munford finally got to Dyer County starter Colton Harris when Josh Reeves singled and scored on a sacrifice fly from Ryan Flake. But in the top of the sixth two Dyer County singles, a couple of questionable calls the umpire and a Munford error led to four Dyer County runs.

The Choctaws held on to first place in the district with an 8-2 win. “I was proud of the way the guys played and stuck together as a team,” Munford coach Steve Ledford said. “We made some mistakes and gave them some outs. We stayed away from the big inning except that one when some unfortunate things happened.” Munford junior Stephen Stewart pitched well enough to win, striking out seven and allowing just six hits in six innings of work. The Cougars (11-6 overall, 3-2 district) scored their second run of the game in the sixth inning when Stewart

singled and was driven by a double from Jase Hutchison. Munford had a chance to some damage in the fourth when Hutchison and Troy Glover singled with two outs, but Harris, who went the distance, pitched out of trouble. Last Tuesday Munford split a district doubleheader with Hardin County. The Tigers won the first game 11-1, but Munford rebounded with a 15-6 win in game two. Stewart won his third game of the season and Munford scored six runs in the sixth to take control of the game.

MOVING ON TO COLLEGE Brighton senior Terice Burrell recently signed a basketball scholarship with Dyersburg State Community College. Burrell averaged 7.6 points, five assists, four rebounds and three steals last year and was All-District Tournament. Said Brighton coach Ronnie Lanier, "As the season progressed, Terice improved her turnover assist ratio tremendously. Without her on the floor we could not get into our offense ... She became the quarterback." Pictured are, stranding, left to right, Lanier, Cetrice Bounds, DSCC coach Ryan Puckett; front, mother Amber Richey, Burrell and father Bryan Richie.

CHS baseball stumble at USA Classic By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader The Covington baseball Chargers stretched their winning streak to 13 with an opening game win at the USA Classic but saw it quickly come to a close as they dropped three straight in as many days to finish 8th in the event and fall to 13-4 on the season. A look at the Classic results follows. CHS 9 Louisville Dupont 8 The Chargers got their lone win of the tournament in the opening game. Will Cooley (4-1) went the distance for the win allowing 8 runs on 10 hits. He added a pair of doubles and Carlos Williams and Blake Caughorn had one each. Tyler Davis and Tommy Beasley had a pair of RBI apiece. CHS pounded out 11 hits and had 3 stolen bases in

the game. Covington 1 Bishop Verot (Ft. Myers, FL) 12 This one was over in 5 innings. The Chargers hit into 2 double plays early that took them out of scoring chances and Bishop Verot was clearly a superior team according to all who saw them boasting two Division 1 signees on their roster. They scored in every inning and could not be contained. Dylan Schlauch went 3 innings and took the loss. He surrendered 10 runs on 8 hits.

Covington 8 Bolton 11 Conner Faulk took the loss in the game going 3.1 innings allowing 10 runs on 4 hits. Only one of those runs was earned as his mates committed 3 big errors behind him. Faulk walked 5 and struck out 6. Clayton Click stroked a pair of doubles and had 2 RBI, as did Will Cooley and Bobby Bailey. Covington 2 Collierville 10 Tommy Beasley got his first start of the year and was chased by the Dragons in the 5th when they scored 5 aided again by CHS errors. He took the loss allowing 9 runs on 9 hits.

Beasley struck out 2 and walked 1. Bradyn McClain finished up going 2.1innings. He gave up 1 run on 3 hits and struck out 2. The Chargers managed only 1 hit in the game, a single by Kirk Winberry.

Lady Cards defeat Munford By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com Riding a huge night at the plate from Maddie Stafford, the Brighton Lady Cardinals handed Munford its first loss of the season last Tuesday in Brighton, 11-1. Stafford hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning and added a three-run triple in the fifth as Brighton won handily. Brighton scored four times in the fifth inning and twice in the sixth end the game via the run rule. Hadley Wilkins also had a big game for Brighton, finishing 2 for 3 with a pair of RBIs. Britt Sanford was 2 for 4.

Laura Judy held the Munford offense in check, allowing seven hits (all singles) and walking none. Paige Barnes took the loss for Munford. Sami Jo Schulz, Alex Turner and Barnes each had two hits for Munford. In other action last week, Brighton defeated Dyer County 10-1 on Thursday. Judy picked up her ninth win of the season, allowing just two hits. Brighton picked up another district win Wednesday at Jackson North Side with a 6-2 victory. Judy was the winning pitcher. The Lady Cardinals also competed in the Covington High Invitational Tournament, falling to Dyersburg in the quarterfinals.

Brighton senior Britt Sanford beats out a play at first base during the Covington High Softball Tournament on Saturday.

CHS soccer defeats Westview By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader Coach Robert Luttrell’s Chargers recorded a 1st for the soccer program last Thursday on the pitch defeating their Charger counterparts from Martin Westview 4-2. The victory keeps CHS undefeated at home this season and tied for 1st place in the district with a record of 4-3-1. The Charger led 1-0 at the half and

poured it on in the 2nd. Bobby Van Cleve had given CHS the lead scoring on a rebound off the goalkeeper’s hands from a shot from his brother Phillip from deep. In the second half, Bobby added 2 more goals for the hat trick. One came on a penalty kick after a push in he box and the other on a line drive shot to the net from 25 yards out. Andy Thompson scored on a crossing pass by Nate

Thompson late in the half to close out the scoring for CHS. Upcoming matches 4/11 CHS @ Peabody rained out TBR 4/12 Ripley @ CHS 5:00 re-scheduled from 4/8 4/14 CHS @ Rosemark 5:00 4/15 CHS @ Crockett Co. 5:00 re-scheduled from 4/4 4/18 South Fulton @ CHS 5:30

The weather has played a bit of havoc with the schedule and maybe that has contributed to some of the inconsistency this season with CHS tennis.

SPIRIT OF THE WILD Kevin Gay, president and CEO of Hydratrek, braved the blizzard and spent three days at Sunrize Acres hunting with Ted Nugent. Above, at left, Gay is pictured with Nugent and their 400-pound Russian boar they bagged. Nugent shared with the group some songs about hunting and politics he had written. At right, Nugent tunes up for the special "concert." Below, Nugent's trophy room is both astounding and extensive, containing many African animals he's had stuffed.

Hunting with Uncle Ted

Hydratrek visits the 'Motor City Madman' By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com

When CEO Kevin Gay of Brighton thinks about his work at Hydratrek, Inc. in Covington, the bets are that he's not thinking of hunting Russian boar with rock star Ted Nugent. Guess again. In early February, Gay spent three days roaming the 2,000 some-odd acres that compose Ted Nugent's sprawling hunting complex, Sunrize Acres, in Jackson, Mich. “It was different,” he said. “He was a very good host and was interesting to be around and to talk to … a unique individual.” Spending Feb. 1-3 in Jackson, Mich. with Ted Nugent meant hunting Russian boar in the middle of a blizzard that deposited 20 inches of snowfall. “The temperatures were in the single digits with a windchill of 20 below,” said Gay. “With all of this, it was still an awesome hunt in which I bagged my first-ever, 400pound Russian boar.” Through the National Rifle Association (NRA), Gay received an invitation to lunch with NRA advancement officer J. D. “Pepper” Petersen. During the gathering, Petersen entertained them with the prospect of becoming more involved with the NRA. A f t e r agreeing to see what that had in store, Hydratrek received an invitation to Michigan to experience the

“spirit of the wild” with Nugent (also known as Uncle Ted). Gay, then, hitched up a Hydratrek unit and headed north. Petersen arranged for Gay and others to join several regional directors and NRA supporters at Nugent's hunting camp for a three-day hunt accompanied by Nugent who also told stories, shared his political views and even played a few of his songs for the group. “You could hunt with a handgun, rifle, bow, anything you wanted,” said Gay. “It was great.” In addition to Nugent and the NRA supporters and staff, hunting participants included Shawn Michaels, former Pro wrestler who is now starting a hunting show, Luke Scott, professional baseball player for the Baltimore Orioles, and Jimmy “Big Time” Miller, host of an Outdoor Channel comedy hunting program. Gay had the opportunity participate with Jimmy “Big Time” Miller and his crew as Ted Nugent toured his property in the Hydratrek. Nugent explained to the camera crew the abundance of the wildlife found on the property. During this tour, Nugent decided to drive and give the crew a little footage. “He loved the

Hydratrek,” said Gay. “He drove it with me and showed me his land and some trees he planted in the 1970s as part of an effort to enhance the wildlife habitat. He blessed the wildlife every day.” Perhaps as no surprise, Nugent wasn't modest in his hunting abilities. “While out, I had the opportunity to see Ted’s expert marksmanship in action as he bagged two squirrels with a .22 rifle at 35 yards while both were running from branch to branch, one shot each,” said Gay. As Hydratrek Inc. is developing a recreational model, the company wants to encompass more markets. “Since my trip to Michigan and my talks with Ted, we have been in discussion with him and his staff as to how we can forge a Ted Nugent/Hydratrek alliance as we prepare to enter the recreational market with our new sportsman’s model,” he said. “In addition, I found Ted to be an extremely bright and humorous person as well a very politically savvy individual. He literally spent hours recanting stories from his youth and friendship with Fred Bear and other pioneers of the outdoor world. “Oh, and yes, he loves expressing his view point on politics and the state of our nation.”

COMMUNITY

Community Easter egg hunt a success By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com On Saturday, April 9, from 11 a.m.-1p.m., the volunteer group Ladies With Visions held an Easter egg hunt for the community at the park area near Covington Integrated Arts Academy. The event included a 650-egg hunt as well as activities for children such as face painting and kickball. Hotdogs were also grilled and lunch was served. Gift Easter baskets and candy were given away. Perhaps the biggest excitement of the day was the Easter bunny who showed up early this year to take pictures with the children. "We love working with children," said LWV president Jackie Bonds. "It's a great

B1.indd 1

way to give back to the community." Ladies With Visions, fondly referred to as LWV, seek to make the lives of others better in any way they can whether it's working with children or visiting hospitals and nursing homes. LWV are a group of women who strive to be positive while motivating and preparing young Ladies to be successful role models as well. By doing this, LWV also empowers themselves, families and their communities through quality of service in giving back to those in need. LWV has set forth goals and are asking for the community to help promote and support their vision. For those interested in helping out through giving time or donations contact any member of LWV by emaling ladieswithvisions@ymail.com.

Pictured above with the Easter bunny are LWV members (top row, left to right) Jackie Bonds, Lovelia Norfolk, Delance Ivy (as the Easter Bunny), Sheila Jackson, Miranda Young, Akio Williams, and (bottom row, left to right) Calandria Currie and Shameka Bates.

Horse Liniment Erases Pain

HIALEAH, FL — An ingredient often used to treat inflammation in racehorse legs, is now back on the market in its original doctor recommended clinical strength formula. According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis. ARTH ARREST is available in a convenient roll-on applicator at pharmacies without a prescription or call 1-800-339-3301. Now available at:
