FLOOD WATCH 2011

Officials concerned about loss of farmland As floodwaters rise, county officials worry for the future of agriculture and the potential of a change in the county’s landscape

A

s the Mississippi River begins to rise, county officials worry about the loss of farmland and the possible change in Tipton County’s landscape. Due to higher than average snowmelt and rainfall over the last few months, the river has swelled over its banks and historic flooding, said the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is forthcoming. Prior to a stationary cold front which dumped heavy rains on the Mid-South last week, Covington-Tipton County Emergency Management Director Tommy Dunavant said the worst thing the area could get would be 4-5 inches of rain.

In the last week, 5-8 inches of rain has fallen in Tipton County. “The big concern is the flooding and even off of the rivers, the system is full,” he said. “All of the tributaries and the rivers that flow to the Hatchie and to the Mississippi, those systems are full; we just don’t have room for that water to go.” The ground, said officials, is saturated due to the area receiving 15-20 inches of rain in the last 30 days. Saturation prevents rainfall – especially heavy rainfall – from draining properly. This week, the Hatchie River in North Tipton and Big Creek in South Tipton both swelled to well above their flood stages. Big Creek rose and fell dramatically, rising from 21.58 feet at 4 a.m. on Monday, May 2 to

40.25 feet by 3 p.m. and back down below flood stage (27 feet) by 8 a.m. Tuesday, May 3. At more than 21 feet at Rialto, where it crosses Hwy. 51, the Hatchie is nearing historic flooding levels set in 1937. Flood stage for this area is 20 feet; the 1937 record was 23.54 feet. Wednesday evening, the Mississippi River measured 44.64 feet on the Memphis Gage, more than 10 feet above its flood stage. The Corps of Engineers predicts the river will crest at 48 feet on Wednesday, May 11. Last week, Brian Webster brought his grandson Hayden Carter to Duvall Landing to survey the rising waters and blow off some energy. The river rose more than a foot and a half since the day before.

“I believe this is going to be a flood of historic proportions,” Webster said. “I’ve seen it three feet deep (at Duvall Landing), but never 10.” By Sunday, Duvall Landing

and Coon Valley Road, were completely underwater. This week more than 50 roadways have been closed due to river flooding and flash flooding SEE FLOOD, A2

Relay for Life event set for Friday night Annual fundraiser changes locations, will take place at Cobb-Parr Park By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com The signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life typically raises thousands of dollars for cancer research and Friday night the journey begins again.

Officers, investigators assaulted in pursuits By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Police pursuits in Tipton County are rare, but last Wednesday night Tipton County law enforcement officers were engaged in two separate chases into Haywood County. Both pursuits also involved attempted injuries to officers. “I am glad that no citizens were harmed and my investigators were not seriously injured,” said Sheriff

J.T. “Pancho” Chumley. “We were not going to stop until we caught these men who blatantly did not care what they had to do to escape being arrested.” At approximately 6:40 p.m., a stepfather-stepson duo was being investigated for attempting to pass forged prescriptions at Covington’s Walgreens. When the subjects were approached by investigators, one was detained by Inv. Brent Chunn and the other fled on foot to his

vehicle, began backing up, striking Inv. Brandon Williams and attempting to back over Inv. Chris Smith. Sheriff’s office spokesperson Donna Turner said the suspect, later identified as 40-year-old Danny Allen, then drove forward, knocking Williams down in the parking lot before fleeing northbound on Hwy. 51. The white Ford Tempo Allen was driving was located on Hope Street by deputies who attempted to conduct a traffic stop. Allen

allegedly refused to stop the vehicle and led deputies on a pursuit west on Hwy. 54. The pursuit continued into Haywood County where it ended when Allen wrecked the vehicle in a ditch at Turnpike Gin. Allen received only minor injuries and was treated and released from Baptist Memorial Hospital-Tipton. He was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, SEE CHASE, A2

Group urges shoppers to set sights on Covington’s square By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com As Tipton Countians and outof-towners alike stride around the Covington Court Square, they will more than likely note that nearly everything one needs or wants can be found there. Such a worthy observation is precisely what a group, called Destination Covington, is making a mission of theirs. They call themselves the DC Crew and they are seeking to bring people, both hometown citizens and out of town visitors, to the Court Square by offering free tours to any groups in the area who want to make a day trip or even an extended overnight trip. Member Pat Ennis recalls what sparked the interest in the group. “We realized what a great deal the Covington square has to offer. From clothing and shoes to antiques, a florist to a hatter, you name it, you can probably find it there.” Ennis praised store owners and employees in charge of each store as well. The merchants are so talented

at bringing in the right inventory for customers and their displays are great. It’s all so wonderful,” she said. The one thing that may be missing, the DC Crew thinks, is that not enough people know about it. Even with so much to offer, it was reported that several businesses have closed or almost had to close their doors over the past few years. Because extensive marketing can rack up spent dollars, the DC Crew has struck out on a mission to bring shoppers to the Court Square. Ennis said, “After asking a few people outside of the county if they’ve been the square, they responded by saying “no” or by explaining they have on their way through Covington to places like Charlene’s in Halls or to Memphis. We wanted to make Covington a destination.” The tours involves a couple DC Crew members showing interested people everything on Covington’s square at a glance. Member Louis Gaither created a map with which tour-goers can follow. A list of restaurants on the square is made available. Participants are urged to

Officer Cynthia Johnson responded to Shirley’s Bar after being flagged down by a patron who claimed to be assaulted. Johnson attempted to talk to the suspect, identified as Gregory Dowell, and place him under arrest, but he fled, said police chief James Paris. Johnson followed the suspect down Hwy. 70, going the posted speed limit until Lt. John Sommers joined her. Dowell continued the pursuit into Haywood County, attempting to run Sommers off the road before he stopped at Gene Johnson Road, reportedly close to his residence. Paris said Dowell began arguing with officers. He was tasered, then taken into cutody. “Both of those officers did and excellent job,” said Paris. “They followed policies and procedures and apprehended him with no injuries.” Dowell was charged with driving under the influence, aggravated assault, evading arrest and domestic assault.

Other DC Crew members include Terry Pitman of Rosemark, Michelle Howard, Diane Ritchey, Kathy Forrester, Christy Hayden, Jana Uttz and Charlotte Anne McCraw. Having given one tour already, the idea is spreading by word-ofmouth. Two more tours have been scheduled for May 12 and 13. The first group was the ‘Mature and Moving’ church group from Crosspointe Baptist Church in Millington. They wrote us back and said that ‘they felt like queens for the day,’” said Ennis. Ennis said that a guest returned to Millington and told their church group about it. The others balked and were unsure, but after telling them more, they responded by asking, “Can we go tomorrow?” Those interested are ensured a great time.

Russell retires from Covington Police By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Nearly four decades ago, assistant police chief Larry Russell transitioned from Covington’s fire to police department. And as he retired on Friday, April 29, his officers and others in the community remember him as being a fair man. “He came along when racial relations weren’t what they are now,” said funeral director and county commissioner Quincy Barlow, “but he was also fair.” Russell began his employment with the City of Covington in

FLOOD

Continued from A1 brought on by heavy rains. County officials said the biggest threat to Tipton Countians is the loss of farmland. “Most of the county is protected by the bluff and between the bluff and the river is some of the richest farmland in the world,” said county executive Jeff Huffman. “We’re concerned about the loss of the farmland and the loss in value of the farmland.” He also said the flooding comes at one of the most inopportune times for farmers. “Commodity prices are at an all-time high and farmers were looking forward to getting crops in and harvesting them,” said Huffman. “This just could not come at a worse time.” Huffman reports only a minimum number of residents in Tipton County will be displaced by the flood, thanks in part to the bluff that prevents widespread flooding through the county.

January 1973; by April he had decided to join the police department. He was the 21st officer hired. With 38 years and 13 days on the job, he said his goal was to remain firm, fair and consistent with the other officers in his department and with the public as well. “When I came on, no on wanted his shift and I didn’t know why,” said Lt. Cavat Bass. “But I figured out if you came to the evening shift, you came to work. He was strict. And he taught me how to treat people.” Russell said one of his favorite memories came “The bluff right now is really a blessing because the counties up north, Lauderdale and Dyer, they do not have anything like that at all,” said Dunavant. “The bluff is really going to be a blessing to us to pull this water back.” To help residents in Southwestern Tipton County, such as the Herring Hill area, prevent as much flooding into homes as possible, the county has secured 1,500 sandbags from the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency. Huffman and Dunavant said the flood could change Tipton County forever, much the way the it did in 1876 when the Mississippi changed course, flowed backward and created Reverie and Centennial islands. “We’re concerned about the creation of new islands or channels,” Huffman said Wednesday. “Years ago, the river made its own channel, that’s why parts of Tipton County are across the river,” Dunavant said. “If this river starts breaching

Charger band breezes through Windy City By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com During the latter part of spring break, the Covington High School band played their instruments in a setting quite different from the classroom, gymnasium and football field. From April 21-23, Charger band students expanded to a venue hundreds of miles away: the Field Museum in Chicago, Ill. “It was an absolutely wonderful experience for these students,� said band director Katie Eaton. “I think they enjoyed every minute of it.� Eaton applied for a position to play a concert at the famed museum in the Windy City some months ago and was offered a spot she and the band couldn’t pass up. “When those at the Field Museum asked us to play on a date during Spring Break, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity.� Good Friday proved to be so as attendance was very high. The band enjoyed a large number of spectators at 2:30 p.m. The most notable aspect perhaps is that all of Eaton’s bands, sixth grade and middle school bands at Crestview Elementary School and the CHS band, all played together at once, a rare performance if done at all. Eaton said, “The younger students were thrilled to be able to play with the older students especially in a large city like Chicago.�

Continued from A1 ing with the American Cancer Society’s efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.� Relay for Life events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at the park with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their campsites during Relay. The annual event brings together friends, families, businesses, hospi-

The selections that the musicians performed came from the high school’s spring concert. To make sure all students could perform the music together, Eaton rewrote the composition for younger students at their appropriate skill-levels. The trip wasn’t all work and no play, however. After the performance, the group, 77 in all with chaperones, saw the Blue Man Group perform, a show that everyone loved. Also on the itinerary was a tour of Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower, and the Museum of Science and Industry. Perhaps the highlight of the trip was their attending of a concert by Chicago Symphony. Eaton reported that it was meaningful for nearly everyone as many hadn’t had the opportunity to witness such a high-caliber performance. The music selections involved everything from a violin concerto by a guest musician to contemporary

tals, schools, faith-based groups, people from all walks of life aimed at furthering the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping them get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. Money isn’t the only thing being raised at Relay for Life. “It’s not just a fundraiser,� said American Cancer Society Community Representative Courtney Goodell. “We also want to raise awareness for the programs and services available to everyone, including people in Tipton County.� ACS offers many programs to help individuals diagnosed with can-

compositions. Music spanning hundreds of years permeated the atmosphere, giving what Eaton believes to be an experience they will never forget. When asked why Eaton was so eager in planning this trip, she said, “I’m always wanting to find opportunities for my students to shine and experience new things and cultures. The kids were great. They made it work.�

Our View

Applause goes to mail carriers Unless you buy The Leader from a store or out of a rack, you probably don't know this: The paper was late last Thursday. With all the printing that had to happen to get out Children's Classic and with a press malfunction and bad weather pinning some of our pressroom help down at home Wednesday, the press was behind its normal schedule and papers were three hours late getting out to the local post offices. But Leader subscribers got their newspapers on time, most likely unaware of the drama that was going on behind the scenes to make that happen on that harrowing Thursday morning. And it happened for one simple reason. Your postal carriers, let by local postmasters, made sure they had papers before they started their routes. And it, without a doubt, proved that customer service is highly prized by our local post offices. It's unfair to single any post office out, so we won't. Each and every post office we talked to Thursday morning held up their carriers on our behalf and in doing so, they've really set a high standard for customer service. Government is not known for efficiency as anyone who's gotten a driver's license or who's had to stand in line to get a new Social Security card will attest. Often folks have said the same thing of the U.S. Postal Service. It's often a place where you can be treated like a problem that's next in line rather than a valued customer. The folks who work at The Leader know our local post offices have always been an exception to that rule. They've always been accommodating, friendly and helpful. We're appreciative of the relationship we have and, frankly, sometimes we've unfairly taken it for granted. It took a tremendous breakdown on our part to show us how important both The Leader and its subscribers are to the folks at the post offices and to remind us of how critical the postal service is to our business and to our readers. The post offices of Tipton County have shown that they care about their customers: the mailers (us here at The Leader) and the mail recipients (you who get the paper in the mailbox). In doing so, they've earned our thanks and our appreciation. With that, we apologize to each and every postal carrier in Tipton County for any delays we caused them last Thursday and we also apologize to the store proprietors and to the customers who buy their papers in those stores. Most of all, though, we say a very heartfelt thanks to our local postal employees for their willingness to treat us -- and you -- like valued customers and not numbers. We hope they've earned your thanks and that you'll let them know you appreciate what they do as well.

Assembly focuses on balanced budget NASHVILLE – The state House will start its first week of budget talks next week and the focus will be on a balanced budget without new taxes, said Speaker Emeritus Naifeh. “The economy is slowly on the rise, but we still have another year or two of belt tightening to do,” said Naifeh (D-Haywood LEGISLATIVE UPDATE and Tipton counties). “Our SPEAKER EMERITUS responsible, fiscally conservaJIMMY NAIFEH tive budgeting through the last several years of the recession has helped us weather the storm. I’m proud of how we have reacted to the hard times. Unlike many states, we have millions in reserves and are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.” The total recommended state budget for 2011-2012 is $30.2 billion, with $13.4 billion from state appropriations, $11.9 billion from federal funds, and $4.9 billion form other departmental revenues, higher education student tuition and fees, and bonds for capital projects and facilities revolving fund capital outlay. “Cuts of $93 million are currently proposed but those could change over the coming days as negotiations begin,” Naifeh said. “I am very glad to also tell Tennesseans that we continue have less debt than most of the states in the country. Also, I will say that K-12 education and Pre-K will not be cut.” More than $43 million will also be placed in the Rainy Day Fund, which is a reserve set up to take care of any unforeseen downturns, Naifeh said. Currently the state has on-hand more than 5.5% of the total budget in reserves. There will be $283.6 million in reserves at the end of the fiscal year as well as $261 million in TennCare reserves. “I plan to keep everyone updated as we move SEE ASSEMBLY, PAGE A5

This love is always there for you

Mother’s Day is one of the greatest days to be celebrated. The best kind of love is unconditional love that your Momma always gave you. When you were born, the first person to hold you, pet you and feed you was your Momma. All that squalling and carrying on you were doing was because you wanted your Momma to feed and take care of you. Even though you were only a few minutes old, you knew who to call on. You never saw a new born calf running around looking for his Daddy. No sirreee, they wanted their Momma, and as always, she was right there. Ever since I can remember, Momma knew what to do, and handled any and every situation that came up, but I didn’t realize it at the time. Growing up as a country boy does have some hang-ups, but Mommas know what to do. I was about four years old and I had this little blue tricycle that I rode the love of my life around on the back of it practically all summer. Well, Lynn got him a big brand new red high-powered tricycle, shiny and all, and my love jilted me for him. When she left me, I ran home crying to Momma all tore up, just knowing I was fixing (Southern for going to) to die right there on the spot. As always she would hug and kiss me, and say her favorite words to me, “I know, son, but you’ll be are-ite.” During my life I have heard that expression about two million times, but you know she was always right!! Unconditional Love. How do Mommas know how to say all the right things back then and now too?? Momma always made sure we had clean clothes washed every day, and plenty to eat, fixed just right.

Mommas taught us how to say our prayers every night, where you get on your knees beside the bed and say, “Now I lay me down to sleep” — you know the prayer. There have even been songs written concerning Mommas. To name a few— “Momma Tried,” “The Hand That Rocks The Cradle Rules The World,” "Momma, Pray for me,” and "Rock A Bye Baby" — ahhh— unconditional love!!

He was practically raised in the county jail, where you sent for “SMALL” stuff or the Shelby County Penal Farm for more serious offenses. I think that’s where he got all his mail at one place or the other. Well, he finally robbed a store and was sent to the “BIG HOUSE," Brushy Mountain back then. Now Mrs. Scott came up to Mr. Ben’s store there in Rosemark in her long coat, (it was about 95 degrees) with her scarf on her head.

legislature to cut lottery scholarships should be defeated, said Naifeh. “One of the best programs in our state is the Hope scholarships funded by our state lottery,” Naifeh said. “To deny our students the opportunity to take advantage of this funding is shortsighted and unnecessary.” Proponents of the cuts say that the change is necessary due to a deficit in the lottery fund.

“They want to strip this opportunity from our students while the lottery clearly has available reserves,” Naifeh said. “There are plenty of changes that can be made by the Tennessee Lottery to generate more revenue. “This is doing nothing but taking away scholarships, promises and hope for Tennessee students.” The bill would increase the standards

to acquire a scholarship from a 3.0 GPA or 21 ACT to a 3.1 GPA or 22 ACT next year; in the second year it would go up to 3.25 or 23. This proposal, according to the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, would strip an estimated 900 students of their scholarships in the first year and 2,700 students in the next year.

ache for a week. When you went to the bank to borrow money and the banker said, “This small payment won’t hurt you, no problem.” He lied. Also, the used car salesman sold you that lemon that lasted three months before it died on the spot, “It’s like a brand new one.” He lied. But the person who never lied to you was your Momma. Unconditional love. You told your Momma secrets you would not tell anyone else. You have NOT forgotten that, have you? I tell you what you do right now, if you are in a position to do so. Lay down this paper, walk over there and hug your Momma, kiss her, tell her you love her, and thank her for all she’s done for you. I’ll guarantee that you will feel a whole lot better. If she lives away, call her. The first thing she’ll say is, “I’ve been

worried about you.” Mommas always worry. Tell her you love her, miss her and you’ll see her real soon. She’ll appreciate it more than you’ll know. If your Momma has gone on to her great reward, pick up some flowers, get on your knees and place them on her grave. Say a prayer, thanking her for all she did. Let her know that you will try to follow in her footsteps and raise your young’uns like she raised you. Even though the cir-

cle is broken, you will be with her one day. She’ll hear you and if you feel some rain — remember, there are holes in the floor of heaven. Don’t worry about getting your britches or your knees dirty, cause yo’ Momma never did. You will be a lot better person, just take the time to thank God for a God-fearing Momma.

She went around and talked to about seven or eight men; they didn’t pay much attention to her. As she started to leave one of the men thought she was already gone and said to Mr. Bright, “who wants to help that dawg (dog)?” Well, Mrs. Scott heard him say that and came back, got up in his face as best she could, looked him in the eye and said this just as plain as day, “He might be a dawg, but he’s my dawg.” Unconditional love, no matter what the circumstance.

Hi everyone, Sure hope you all have access to a raft our boat or some type of floating device. Maybe it's time to blow up our swimming pool floaters a little early. Basically we've done very well. We did however end up with one small leak in the attic. For the present time it has a bucket under it. There's more work when the weather gets back to normal. Charlie did work hard last Friday to get all the yard and pastures cut prior to all this mess. Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers, both young and old and older. Mothers are God's creative gift to society. A blessing to all children and you dads too. Hope you all have the greatest day! We only had one ball game last week to go to, that was not out of town. All the boys are going to so many out of town games or "late" games.

Dunlap Retirement Center Kathy Keiter • 476-7014

Hello everyone! Wow! What a week! I told my board members we may have to invest in some canoes! This is all so very devastating to see all the pictures that different people have sent me. Praise the Lord Dunlap is on higher ground! We’ve also had our share of tornado drills this week. Praise God we never actually saw one! We have no idea the true devastation some people have experienced in the past several months, seems like beginning with the earthquake in Japan!!! There again... Wow, what power! I received an email of an aerial view of that earthquake, I mean I can’t even imagine the fear those poor folks had as they saw the water coming and could not get away from

But we did get to see our little Addie play in Atoka Saturday afternoon. Their team has had better games. Our little Addie was more or less "tackled," like in a football game running from first base to home. Bless her heart. She was hurt and crying, but her old daddy David would not let me "baby" her. She did get back out there and hit a good one, but they still lost. Oh well, with the ground so wet there probably won't be another game for a while anyway. On Monday morning Charlie said, "Do you still want to go to McDonald's for breakfast? I said "Of course, it may not ever stop raining". We went on with our regular routines. Salem Presbyterian Church Worship is at 11 a.m. each Sunday morning. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. The Women's Bible Study will meet this Thursday, May 5 at 7 p.m. at the church. This Sunday, May 8, our high school graduates will be honored with a graduation brunch

at 11 :00 a.m. Please bring a dish. High school graduates are Annie Miller, Kaidyn Downing, Austin Willey, Jeremy Robertson and Eric Becton. Congratulations to each of you and God's blessings to all. Happy birthdays this week goes to Lori Beth Smith and Catherine Malone. Hope they are each the best! Sharon Presbyterian Church Worship is at 9 a.m. each Sunday morning. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. We welcome all members, friends and visitors to the fellowship of Sharon. We are always thankful for our Dunlap residents who are able to be with us. Rev. Bud Fee was scheduled for removal of fluid on the brain Tuesday of this week. We have not heard any more concerning this as of Tuesday afternoon. Please keep him and Ruby and others in your prayers. Covington Church of Christ Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday morning and again at 5:30 p.m. Bible

study is at 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning and again at 7 p.m. each Wednesday evening. Everyone is always welcome. Brother Mike Rogers is our minister and brother Jeff Phillips our associate minister. We have several on our prayer list at this time. Please continue to remember our sister in Christ, Mrs. Mary Joyce Coughlan, and grand-paw Kenneth Mason. He was especially happy on Easter Sunday as their daughter Misti and her husband Jason Elliot and their precious little ones Amos and Lydia were home from Henderson. They also brought news that another little angel is arriving in the fall. Congratulations Grandma and Grand-paw! Our church has been so blessed with so many wonderful people. And a special thanks to Wayne Dalrymple and Jeff Phillips and several others for keeping our children and our youth department busy at all times doing the Lord's work. Happy birthdays this week to Erin Evins, Crystal Edmonds, our minister

it. We need to be in prayer for all the hurting people that have been affected by all this devastation here in the states and around the world! I must say I praise the Lord for a most beautiful day this past Saturday! We had the greatest bunch of kids from Rosemark Church of Christ come and clean up our whole front yard to get ready for our Springfest Fundraiser that will be taking place on May 14th, from 10 -3pm, (sure hope you all get to come). This youth group was absolutely amazing! Those kids worked nonstop for about three hours and every one of them had a smile on their faces! One of the youth leaders, Chris Meyer, and several other leaders were fantastic. They worked right alongside of those kids the whole time. From what I understand, they had breakfast at their church before they came and went there for lunch as soon as they left here. They had all worked up a real appetite. I’m sure they

would appreciate anyone that would want to come and join in the fun with the youth group! They were a great bunch of kids! I am hoping I can figure out how to send a picture on the computer to Echo to put in the paper of these kidos, they deserve it! They get a “thumbs up” from Dunlap Retirement Center this week! Thank you Rosemark Church of Christ youth, ya’ll are great! Now another group of “kiddos”…well not really kiddos, but there was also another group of very sweet people who were here too! It was the missions team from (my church) Holly Grove CP Church. They did an amazing job as well! They come over every year and just turn our whole place into a beautiful place! They trim trees, rake leftover leaves, clean gutters, cut and trim bushes, oh and I could just go on and on! Thank you so very much Lisa, Lee, Anna Cathrine, Jerry, Julie and Raymond!!! Y'all are just angels! Just to let you know

how much “stuff” we had laying around the grounds and the trimmings, between them and the Rosemark youth, they carried off 10 loads of debris on our 6x10 trailer and our 6x17 trailer! Wow! Thank you for all your hard work and your heart for Dunlap! Also let me share another blessing we had this week; Kenny McCain, owner of KL Exchange, formerly “the old Idaville Store”, came this week and presented Dunlap with $435.00 from people in the area who donated money to sign the old bench that once set out on the porch at the old store! Awesome!! Thank you Kenny and all of our neighbors! We love our community so much! We also wish the very best to Kenny and his new business, that they have a great success! Stop by and see them for breakfast or lunch! Well I’ve ran out of room, so its bye for now! God bless you all and don’t forget to be kind to everyone you meet this week! God is always watching!

more than a vampire! Great movie but not for children. Kinda violent. We had a great night. Elizabeth and Lyla came over Saturday and spent the whole afternoon. Lyla went to her pediatrician yesterday and weighed 21.7 pounds and was 29-3/4 inches tall! Big girl! I went to Morgan Hampton's bridal shower on Sunday and she had lots of gifts to open. She is the bride-elect of Hunter Anderson. I hope they will have many years of happiness together. I'm excited about Friday! My grandmother, Evelyn Porter Harrington of Calvert City, Kentucky, will be 100 years old! Big party at the drive-in! Yay! Mary Joyce Coughlan continues her treatments and is a little stronger. Twelve days in the hospital will wear you out. Genie Renfroe is home from the hospital and Preston Stanley is recovering from surgery, as is Rodger Beasley. Virginia Baxter has not been feeling well. They are all in my prayers, along with Kenneth Mason, Jenni

Langston and all our servicemen and women. County Graduation Ceremonies are as follows: Brighton, May 19th, Munford, the 20th and Covington, the 23rd. Graduates at the Covington Church of Christ are Cameron Dickey, John Evans IV and Ellie Wall. Their graduation party will be Saturday, the 7th. Got to get back from Kentucky for that!

From Marion Davis: The men of Clopton United Methodist Church, 5285 Brighton-Clopton road, will have a community breakfast on Saturday, May 7th, from 7:30 to 10 a.m. Everyone is invited! Thanks, Marion! This week's Farmer's Almanac Quote: (in honor of Mother's Day) "If evolution really works, how come mothers have only two hands?" - Milton Berle, American Comedian (19082002).

water. Last Wed. we were down at Tunica Lake....at that time the water was up and I had to take off my shoes to get to the stair case. It probably is up the staircase by now. The roads are all closed down to the lake. Last flood at the lake it tore up our lawn mover. We got it fixed and put it up on the 5foot shelf in the storage building. Just hope the mower is up high enough so that water don't get in it again.

Last week when the storm came, it knocked down one of our red bud trees. Our good neighbor Mr. Williams removed it for us. We had him to take down the other red bud tree while he was here with his tractor. We have been trying to get up the stumps. I think we have decided to get a stump grinder to get up the two stumps. Today , Tuesday, is a perfect day. Praise the Lord. Love & prayers.

Chargers rally and win 13 AA South title By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader It wasn’t exactly like they planned it, but David Sage’s Chargers rallied from an ugly loss on Thursday night with a big win in front of the home folks to take the District 13 AA

South championship and home field for the first two games of the District tournament beginning Thursday, May 5. Game time is scheduled for 6 p.m. The Chargers traveled to Crockett Co. last Thursday to face a Cavalier team, which

was also unbeaten in the 13 AA South. Two wins assured the title and a split meant that the tiebreaker came down to the run differential in the two games. It wasn’t a good night anywhere. Will Cooley took the loss with an uncharacteristic night where his control

was not on. Despite striking out 9, Cooley, and D J Max combined for nine walks and two hit batters. The two gave up only six hits and their mates committed a bucketful of errors to boot in the 10-7 loss. With all that, CHS had the tying run at the plate in the top

of the seventh. The money game at Chandler Field on April 29 was all CHS. Dylan Schlauch got the win in five innings as the Chargers ripped the Cavaliers 16-2 to take the 13 AA South title. Tyler Davis was the hitting leader with three hits,

three runs scored and five RBIs in four appearances. Kirk Winberry and Bobby Bailey added three RBIs apiece. The Chargers closed the regular season with an 18-7 record.

Lady Cougars take second in Jackson CHS tennis wins By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com The Munford Lady Cougar softball team performed well last weekend in the Jackson North Side Tournament, but came up short in the title game to finish second. Riverside defeated the Lady Cougars 6-0 on Saturday in the championship game. Munford (28-7) came into the final game looking for their third tourney title of the season, but Riverside scored four runs in the first two innings to take control early. Tara Comer (11-2) suffered just her second loss of the season. Munford’s offense managed just two hits. Munford took out Adamsville 6-0 in the semifinals with a 10-hit attack. Comer held Adamsville to three hits over five innings to earn the win.

In action last Thursday in Somerville, Munford defeated Fayette Academy 6-0. Comer picked up the win as the Lady Cougars banged out seven hits and jumped out to a 4-0 lead through three innings. In other action last week: * The Munford baseball team (16-8) split a pair of

District 13-AAA games with Jackson North Side. On Wednesday in Jackson Munford took advantage of a strong game by Kale Fultz, who drove in two runs and also struck out six over six innings in a 7-3 win. Zach Mays was doubled and drove in two runs. Stephen Stewart picked up an RBI and Ryan Flake had a key

Injuries hit Lady Chargers By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader Martha Lawler’s Lady Charger’s 4th place finish in the regular season ending tourney at Jackson Northside may prove to be costly. Two starters went down with injuries, catcher Jamie Hollingsworth re-aggravating a deep thumb bruise on her catching hand, and Hannah Clifton with a hand injury when hit by a pitch against Chester County. Coach Lawler could only say “ both are out for a little while”. In other tourney news, Autumn Glenn and Jasmine Brown were selected to the All Tournament Team. Vs. Haywood CHS won in a walk 14-0. Gabby Glenn got the win on a no hitter. She struck out 10 and walked one. CHS booked

13 hits. Jessica Ashburn led the way going threefor-three. Vs. Chester Co. Autumn Glenn took the loss 4-3 despite surrendering only three hits. On the other side of the ledger, Covington had only two hits in the game. Vs. Halls Gabby Glenn got her 2nd tourney win 4-1 allowing four hits in the game. Sister Autumn and Jamie Hollingsworth each had home runs for CHS. Autumn Glenn added another hit and had three RBIs. Vs. Bartlett Coach Lawler called this the team’s most consistent game of the year as her squad pounded out 18 hits and committed only one error in a 16-0 clubbing of the Panthers. Jasmine Brown was three-

for-three; Autumn Glenn was the winning pitcher and went three-for-four including a homer and three RBIs and Ryleigh Deverell, Gabby Glenn and Whitney Cook each went three-for-four at the plate with the latter two having three RBIs each. Vs. Decatur Parsons Riverside Gabby Glenn was a 6-2 loser in the final game of the regular season allowing five hits and two walks. CHS had only two hits in the game. The District 13 AA tournament is scheduled to open, weather and grounds conditions permitting, on May 2 at Dyersburg. Times and dates may change. CHS enters the tournament with a 24-6-3 record. They are scheduled to play Milan in a 1st round game at 5:00 pm

Stewart allowed seven hits and six walks in the loss. * The Tipton-Rosemark baseball team (23-9) won two of three games last week. On Saturday, TRA defeated Harding Academy 5-4 behind a strong pitching performance from J.T. Moody. Moody moved to 4-3 with the win. Rosemark. Cody Migliore picked up the save for the Rebels. On Friday the Rebels split a doubleheader with USJ. TRA won the first game, 5-1, behind starter Andrew Walston, who moved to 4-1 with the win. In game two the Bruins’s Jake Overbey held TRA to five hits in a 8-5 win. Erik Searing (7-1) took his first loss of the season.

THP urges motorists to watch out for flood waters NASHVILLE --- Hard on the heels of the flood waters that swamped Middle Tennessee just over a year ago, heavy rains again saturate a large portion of the state. Due to above normal water levels and the high potential for flooding, the Tennessee Highway Patrol is urging all motorists to avoid standing water on roadways…“Turn Around Don’t Drown®.” According to the National Weather Service (NWS), annually, more deaths are caused by flooding than any other severe weather-related hazard. Preliminary data from NWS indicate there were 22 flood casualties in Tennessee in 2010. Of those 22 deaths, eight of those were by vehicle. “Motorists must be smart and take extra precautions when driving in wet, rainy, and flooding conditions,” said THP Colonel Tracy Trott. “Drivers should adjust their speed accordingly, and avoid driving through flooded areas by any means necessary.” In Tennessee, it is against the law to drive around a barricade or flood warning sign. According to TCA 55-10205 (c)(1), any driver who knowingly

ignores a clearly visible and adequate flood warning sign or blockade and drives into a road area that is actually flooded is committing reckless driving. In addition to fines, the court may order the driver to pay restitution for the cost associated with any rescue efforts related to the violation. Flash floods can come rapidly and can occur within a few minutes of excessive rainfall. However, most flood-related deaths and injuries could be avoided. THP offers these reminders to drivers: - Do not drive through flooded areas. If you come across a flooded road, turn around and find another route to your destination. Do not drive around barricades. - Don’t try to cross flooded roads where the water appears to be shallow. Water hides dips in the road. Worse yet, there may be no road at all under the water. - If your car stalls, abandon it and climb to higher ground. Wait for the waters to subside. - One foot of water will float many vehicles.

A Prepared Place By Rick Huffman If someone were to mention the final abode for man that the Godhead has prepared, no doubt the place that would come to mind is Heaven. Jesus promised the apostles before He ascended to Heaven that He would prepare a place for them. John 14: 1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. Heaven is promised to us if we will be faithful to the end. “ Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” (Rev 2:10b) Paul states, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” (II Tim. 4:7-8) Jesus paints us this picture of the judgment scene. Mat. 25: 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Some have rightly concluded that heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people. Most certainly, we will not get there by accident. As noted above, heaven is the reward for a faithful life. The parable of the virgins tells of five who were wise, adequately prepared and invited into the wedding feast with the bridegroom. Five were foolish, unprepared and denied access to the wedding feast with the bridegroom. (Matthew 25:1-13) Many forget or choose to ignore the

second prepared place. Like heaven, it is deity prepared. Like heaven, it is everlasting. Like heaven, it will be occupied by those who have walked this earth. Jesus in describing the judgment scene has this to say: Mat. 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. Hell is also a prepared place. It likewise will be the final abode of man. In fact many more will dwell there than in heaven. Mat. 7: 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. This prepared place is much easier to get into than Heaven. We tend to think that only really bad folks (Re 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.) will be there but there also will be a lot of folks you may not expect. There will be sincere religious folks there who thought they were following God. There will be folks there that thought they were going to Heaven. There will even be some who will argue with Jesus and say that there must

be some mistake. “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21-23) There will be some there who were simply afraid to try to live the Christian life, who felt that being a Christian was just too demanding or was impossible to do. Listen to the one talent man who buried his talent. Mat. 25: 24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. There will be some who just never got around to living for Jesus because other things stole their time. In fact, the easiest way to get into hell is by doing nothing. James 4: 17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. Rom. 6: 23a For the wages of sin is death. Some would say the question is, “Are we prepared for the place prepared by God?”, but the real question is, “Which prepared place are we prepared for, Heaven or hell?” The truth is whatever we are doing (or not doing) is preparing us for one or the other.

Atoka Water System Water Quality Report 2010

Is my drinking water safe? Yes, our water meets all of EPA’s health standards. We have conducted numerous tests for over 80 contaminants that may be in drinking water. As you’ll see in the following chart, we only detected seven of these contaminants. We found all of these contaminants at safe levels.

What is the source of my water? Your water, which is ground water, comes from the Munford Water System and Poplar Grove Utility District which get their water from a sand aquifer. Our goal is to protect our water from contaminants and we are working with the State to determine the vulnerability of our water source to potential contamination. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) has prepared a Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP) Report for the untreated water sources serving water to this water system. The SWAP Report assesses the susceptibility of untreated water sources to potential contamination. To ensure safe drinking water, all public water systems treat and routinely test their water. Water sources have been rated as reasonably susceptible, moderately susceptible or slightly susceptible based on geologic factors and human activities in the vicinity of the water source. The Atoka Water System sources rated as reasonably susceptible to potential contamination. An explanation of Tennessee’s Source Water Assessment Program, the Source Water Assessment summaries, susceptibility scorings and the overall TDEC report to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can be viewed online at www.state.tn.us/environment/dws/dwassess.shtml or you may contact the Water System to obtain copies of specific assessments. A wellhead protection plan is available for your review by contacting Mark Johnson at the Atoka Water System weekdays. Why are there contaminants in my water? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Enviromental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800426-4791) Este informe contiene información muy importante. Tradúscalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien. For more information about your drinking water, please call Daniel Lovett at 901-837-5300. How can I get involved? Our Water Board meets on the first and third Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at the utility office. Please feel free to participate in these meetings. Is our water system meeting other rules that govern our operations? The State and EPA require us to test and report on our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. We have met all of these requirements. Results of unregulated contaminant analysis are available upon request. We want you to know that we pay attention to all the rules. Other Information The sources of drinking water (both tap and bottled water) include rivers,

lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occuring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animal or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water: -Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. - Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, farming. - Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. - Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. - Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA and the Tennessee Department of Enviroment and Conversation prescribe regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public wate systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. Do I need to take special precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons, such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have under-gone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about not only their drinking water, but food preparation, personal hygiene, and precautions in handling infants and pets from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Lead in Drinking Water If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Munford Water System is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components,. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www. epa.gov/safewater/lead Water System Security Following the events of September 2001, we realize that our customers are concerned about the security of their drinking water. We urge the public to report any suspicious activities at any utility facilities, including treatment plants, tanks, fire hydrants, etc. to 901-837-0171.

Water Quality Data What does this chart mean? • MCLG: Maximum Contaminant Level Goal, or the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. • MCL: Maximum Contaminant Levels, or the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated constituents, a person would have to drink 2 liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of having the described health effect. • MRDL: Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level or MRDL - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for the control of microbial contaminants. • MRDLG: Maximum residual disinfectant level goal. The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. • AL - Action Level, or the concentration of a contaminant which, when exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. • Below Detection Limit (BDL) - laboratory analysis indicates that the contaminant falls below the state's required detection level.. • Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) - explained as a relation to time and money as one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000. • Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter - explained as a relation to time and money as one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000.

Iron: Iron occurs naturally in our raw water and occasionally accumulates in the distribution system. Iron shows up as “red” or “rusty” water at your tap. Although you do not want to drink water that is not clear, iron is not considered to be a hazard to your health. We test for iron daily and it is usually around 0.04 ppm. The aesthetic limit for iron is 0.3 ppm. During the most recent round of Lead and Copper testing, 0 out of 23 households sampled contained concentrations exceeding the action level.
