Changes expected for school board By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com

T

he culmination of a changing of tides is at hand for the administration at the Tipton County Board of Education. This will result in a chain of replacements in personnel. On Thursday, June 9, board members and administrators were witnesses to Tim Fite’s

last board meeting as superintendant. After a vote by school board members on May 12, Bibb was chosen to become the next superintendent of Tipton County Public Schools. “This is an excellent system and I’m going to do my best to keep it headed in the direction it’s been going in the last few years,” Bibb said.

Some minor issues will change when Bibb takes on the position. Steven Shields reported that Bibb will receive only single coverage on insurance as opposed to Fite’s family coverage. Here, a $9,000 difference will be saved, but dental coverage will be added. However, major changes in personnel are on tap for next year.

Georgia Dawson, the elementary instructional supervisor, will take on the director of instruction position, which is Dr. Bibb’s recently vacated job. Dr. Charlotte Fisher, former principal of Atoka Elementary School, will resume Dawson’s old position while Dr. Rebekah Byrd, assistant principal at AES, welcomes that princi-

EVENTS

pal’s position. Of Fite’s retirement, Shields said, “You will be sorely missed and my voice echoes with everybody else here. Congratulations to Mr. Bibb.” Dr. William E. “Buddy” Bibb has worked at the board since 1997. He was the only applicant for the position that will be left vacant when Dr. Tim Fite retires on June 30.

Police search for armed robbery suspect By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com COVINGTON - Police are seeking the help of the public in their search for a suspect who stabbed a clerk after robbing the Advance America Cash Advance store Monday morning. Officers were dispatched to the store, located across the street from Walmart, Monday morning. “He stabbed her in the right thigh,” said Det. Jack Howell, noting that the assailant jump over the counter and the clerk may have been stabbed after they both fell to the floor. Sources say she is in non-critical condition. Advance America closed for the remainder of the business day, but is now back open. Howell said the suspect, who remains unidentified, got away with an estimated $1,200. He

Singers reunite for celebratory concert By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com

Old schoolmates Janet Phelps Sparkman and Ellen Clark had no idea the reunion would be so successful when they got the idea to bring past Byars-Hall High School and Covington High School choir students under choir director Russell Phelps together for one more performance. Last Saturday, past students who dotted Phelps’ 32-year-long tenure from 1957-1989 at BHHS, which became CHS in 1971, came together for a day-long reunion in celebration of the director’s impactful instruc-

tion of music. From 9-11 a.m., the 40 schoolmates who dedicated the time were given a chance to catch up with each other and with Phelps after all those years that had passed. As 2 p.m. rolled around, Phelps was all business as the group held a two-hour rehearsal of familiar selections that all had performed over the years. The group seemed apprehensive at first, but they soon fell back into the swing of things. “After we started, it felt like we were back in class with each other,” said Clark. “Mr. Phelps started in with the jokes and chiding. It made us want to sing well for him.” Their performance at 6:30 was one for the ages. The rep-

ertoire of the evening included “From Sea to Shining Sea,” “Sine Nomine,” “The Rainbow Connection,” “May Day Carol,” “Somewhere Out There” and “My Eternal King.” Clark said the group was worried that they would live up to the level of difficulty, but, when asked about them, Phelps quickly gave his affirmation. “The group that came together for the reunion concert was the best choir ever,” he said. “I don’t know how they could’ve improved. I was amazed.” That the group amazed Phelps is noteworthy in itself. The man comes from a musical family and is sure he inherited his musical ability from his lineage. After he

graduated high school, he said he wasn’t sure what he wanted to do. “I knew I had talent in music, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it. I then decided I did not want to perform and that I would enjoy teaching.” After graduating from high school in 1945 from Mayfield High School in Kentucky, Phelps earned his bachelors degree from Murray State University and took a job teaching in Tunica, Miss. In 1949, after a year, he was drafted as an assistant chaplain for the Korean War during which he married in 1951. The next year he was able to come back to Tunica where he taught until 1957 when he started at Byars-

Residents turn to storm shelters, registry

TODAY’S WEATHER No end in sight for the heat. High, 95. Low, 72.

By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com Judy Walker said she’s tired of severe weather. With the installation of a storm shelter last week, she took a stand against the fury of Mother Nature. “I’m doing this because I’m terrified of storms,” she said. “That last one that came through Joplin, I’ve absolutely been terrified and I’m tired of it.” On May 22, an EF-5 tor-

nado hit the southwestern Missouri city of Joplin, killing 152 people. It is now considered the deadliest tornado in United States history. Though Tipton County has seen many tornadoes, there hasn’t been a death attributed to the potentially deadly storms in recent history. But that fact – and the fact that her son, Tim Van Horn, is part of Action News 5’s award-winning weather

team – didn’t stop Walker from purchasing a storm shelter. “This is absolutely a relief. I know I’ll have a safe place to go when they tell me to go.” A week ago, her shelter was installed under her garage in her Tracy Road home and will fit 10 people comfortably, giving her plenty of room for her entire family, including her Pomeranian. “This other stuff can all

be replaced if it goes, but my family can’t,” said the Atoka resident. “I’m thrilled to death to get it.” Walker said she also intends to register her shelter’s location with the sheriff’s office, part of the newly-implemented storm shelter registry. “In the wake of the recent devastation in areas such as Tuscaloosa, Ala. and Joplin, Mo., and the subsequent rescue efforts, we have sought to prepare more comprehen-

SHELTER

Continued from A1 sively should a similar situation occur within our jurisdiction,” said sheriff J.T. “Pancho” Chumley. A free service, the registry provides first responders with information about residential or commercial storm shelters in case of an emergency. Registering with the sheriff’s office is done on a volunteer basis only. It is not required. “All information you provide will be used by first responders – police, fire and emergency medical services – to help with emergency response in

the event your home or neighborhood is affected by a tornado or other disaster,” he said. Only storm shelters located in Tipton County can be registered. “I’m going to register it, to make sure the sheriff will know where I’m at,” Walker said. “I think it’s a wonderful thing to have because if something comes up, they’ll know where to look.” To add your shelter to the registry, or update information about your registered shelter, contact the sheriff’s office at 901-475-3300.

Continued from A1 last month. “The 11-year-old went and got the 5-year-old’s mother and that’s who called us,” said Deputy Chief Donna Turner, spokesperson for the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office. When deputies arrived to investigate the abuse claim, Billings reportedly fled into the wooded

area behind his home. And that’s when the sheriff’s office brought in a new weapon: K-9 officer Barry, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois trained to search for and retrieve suspects. While searching for Billings, deputies began noticing smoke coming from his home. Having been inside the residence already,

they knew there was no smoke prior to Billings fleeing into the woods. Deputies believed Billings was using the smoke in his attempt to evade them Once on the scene, Barry was released into the residence where he located Billings, biting him on the forearm.

Bradley joins Leader office staff Arrests reveal five-county theft ring

Michelle Bradley has joined the staff of The Leader as office manager and bookkeeper. Bradley, a resident of Munford, comes to The Leader with a solid background in customer service and has solid office organizational skills. “As bookkeeper and office manager, I have a lot of faith in Michelle,” said publisher Brian Blackley. “She’s warm, enthusiastic, friendly and helpful and she’s proven to be very bright in learning the tasks that come with the job. We’re glad to have her on board.” Her role at the newspaper will be to handle accounts payable and receivable and to ensure that bookkeeping data is correct and that customer concerns regarding these areas are addressed. She also serves as a member of the management staff, notably in assisting with payroll, ensuring supplies and equipment are in stock and in handling the scheduling and operation of the front desk and reception areas. Blackley said the role is one that is often-overlooked, but that is, nonethe-

less, one of the most vital. “When bookkeeping problems occur, we feel it,” he said. “That’s why having someone of Michelle’s caliber is so important. As a business, we have bills to pay and revenue to generate and Michelle will bring all of that together.” Bradley said she is happy to join the staff and is excited about the challenge. “I’m happy to be aboard,” she said. “This will give me the opportunity to sharpen my skills while continuing with a tradition of great customer service that has already been established in this office.” Bradley, 23, is the wife of James Bradley. She originally hails from Shelby County and has lived in Tipton County for 10 years. Bradley replaces outgoing bookkeeper and office manager Kathy Griffin whose 16 years with The Leader are ending as she and her husband relocate outside of the area. “Kathy was a blessing for us here,” said Blackley. “She had been here so long and had worn so many hats during that time that she was absolutely a critical part of the operation. She will be missed dearly by the staff and by the customers, but in Michelle, I know we’ll be in good hands.”

150 YEARS AGO: JUNE 1861

The Civil War in Tipton County Editor’s note: The following is a historical piece commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, written and compiled by Tipton County Historian Russell B. Bailey. By RUSSELL B. BAILEY Tipton County Historian

A Soldier Writes Home to his Children James I. Hall of Mt. Carmel, Lieutenant of Co. C, 9th Tennessee Infantry, wrote home to his children on June 11, 1861: “I am at Union City camped out in the woods. Mr. (Captain David J.) Wood, Mr. (J.) Winford, Gabe (servant) and I stay in the same tent. We have the ground covered with straw, sleep on a mattress, have plenty of blankets. Gabe cooks for us. We have fried ham, biscuit and coffee for breakfast, dinner and supper. Sometimes we get peas, beans, onions and potatoes for dinner. Grandma sent us some nice butter but it is almost gone. We have plenty to eat. Gabe washes for us. There are six regiments here and we expect two or three more today… Our camp is close beside the railroad. A great many cars pass every day and night. The whistle wakes us up every night… I want you both to come up and see me after (school) session is out… While I am writing another regiment has come on a train of cars… the men are in box cars; they have knocked all the planks off from the sides of the cars and are standing with their heads out at the openings, looking like chickens in a chicken wagon. That is the way our company came up from Jackson.

We have a great deal of noise in the camp at night. Some of the boys sing, some holler, some bark like dogs, some crow like chickens and one whistles so much like a mocking bird…at nine o’clock the lights are blown out and all go to bed except the guards who walk around the camp all night. They have a hard time when it rains. We see ladies and little girls in the camp every day, who come in to see the soldiers. Seeing little girls here reminds me of my little girls at home. I wonder if they are well…and wish that I could see them for a little while…I want Jesse to write me a letter…let me know how…Grandma & Grandpa (are)…Give my love to all your uncles, aunts and cousins. From your papa, Jas. I. Hall.

Harris calling him to Memphis to raise a battalion of cavalry for the service.”

By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com A pair of allegedly thieves from Somerville is believed to be responsible for a series of thefts in five jurisdictions, police say. On June 3, George Edward Whittemore, 34, and Steve Allen Hall Jr., 25, were charged with thefts throughout Tipton County. They were originally arrested on theft charges in Fayette County, leading to the recovery of items reported stolen in April and May. It also lead to charges in Hardeman and Haywood counties as well as in Germantown. “This was a great piece of police work that stretched across five counties,” said sheriff J.T. “Pancho” Chumley. “The arrest in Fayette County was the break we needed to solve these cases and locate the stolen property.”

Detectives interviewed the duo and determined they were responsible for thefts in the 4800 block and the 5000 block of Highway 59 South in Covington, Ryan Cove in Munford and the 2200 block of Gainesville Road in Mason. During the investigation, detectives were able to recover an 18-foot Diamond Charger flatbed trailer, valued at $4,800, and a 1999 Polaris ATV valued at $1,000. Chumley said the investigation is ongoing. Whittemore and Hall Jr. were charged with four counts of theft of property $1,000 to $10,000 and burglary. Whittemore is currently being held in Hardeman County while Hall is in custody in Fayette County. “They have pending charges or holds for additional charges in Fayette County, Tipton County, Hardeman County and the Germantown police

PHELPS

Continued from A1 Hall High School. During his stint at Tunica he earned his masters degree during the summer at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. Throughout his years as choir director at BHHS and CHS, Phelps said that from year to year his teaching took on new meanings. “I loved watching my students mature in their musical knowledge during their years in high school. Now, the most gratifying thing is during times like this reunion when they come back and tell me how much being a part of the choir meant to them. When I hear that it influenced their lives in a good way, I can’t ask for anything else. I’ve had students tell me that it was what kept them in school.”

The look of admiration in their eyes as they snapped pictures with their old director revealed that their love for the man and the music has never died, but will live on and will surely be passed to their children. “Having them come back on Saturday and directing them was very emotional for me. It was the most pleasant experience I’ve ever had.” These people who were students so long ago under Russell Phelps took on their smiling youthful faces once again Saturday night after the concert was over as they hugged and chatted. Old inside jokes were brought up again as laughter shook the walls of that choir room, walls embedded with the signature of Phelps’ music.

THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2011

From Bucca with love, part 4 As I mentioned before, we had 2 Quads of Shi’a and 2 of Sunni Muslims for a total of about 1,000 detainees. The Shi’a were actually quite agreeable folks, would laugh and cut up with you, expressed gratitude for their food, movies (they loved American action films, especially with Jean Claude Van Dam), JIM HARDIN soccer time, and rarely gave us any trouble. The chief was the spokesperson for the group in the Quad and he was clearly in charge of the other detainees. In the Alfa Quad was a Shi’a chief who had been a high up death squad leader with his brother in the Mahdi Army of Al Sadir from Basra. His brother was quiet and a bit scary, but the chief was articulate in English, extremely intelligent, friendly to American guards, and hated the Sunnis. In fact, it seemed most of our Shi’a prisoners were in Camp Bucca for what they did to Sunnis, not Americans or Coalition Forces. Saddam Hussein was a Sunni whose 25% of the population ruled Iraq with an iron fist over the Shi’a, Kurds and others. The Shi’a represented over 60% of Iraq, and to people like our Alfa Quad chief, it was payback time. Shortly after we took over the compound, the Sunni’s in Bravo and Delta Quads rioted with Sunnis across the Camp. They would use “rock mail” thrown from compound-to-compound to stir up their brothers to riot in unison. We had to gear up and post guards at various positions inside the wire to ensure they were contained and not trying to break through. They would set mattresses on fire, and sometimes their huts. Rocks made from soil mixed with their sweet tea would be thrown at the guards as they would chant “Allah Akbar” and other things I rarely understood. My job was to go around the various posts and try to encourage my sailors to be both alert and show constraint. The Shi’a would always obligingly enter their holding and headcount area and watch in amusement, hoping we would do some damage to the Sunnis they hated more than Americans. Eventually, the Theater Internment Facility (TIF) Commanding Officer would give the order to deploy OC tear gas if they would not stop, and this always did the trick. Having OC sprayed in my eyes during training, I can testify that you pretty much wanted to lie down and die as your eyes burned like a thousand needles impaled in your cornea, and your nostrils uncontrollably ran gallons of fluids down your face. We never really knew what set these protests off, but it was often speculated that someone in another compound insulted a detainee chief or touched the Koran improperly during a search. Things were not done maliciously or to stoke the detainees, but a young guard might make a mistake in process or judgment that would cost us a few hours of grief. Anyway, the day after the first riot, the Alfa Quad chief asked me why we tolerated the Sunni’s behavior as we did without firing live rounds on the protestors. I explained our American goal of showing them we were not like Saddam’s police or prison forces. He replied by offering 20 of his men who we could arm, send into the 2 Sunni compounds, and allow his men to kill off the troublesome Sunnis. The chief seemed stunned that I thought such an idea was in bad form and I would not agree. I was convinced he would have armed his men, killed the Sunnis, and then returned the weapons and gone back into their Quad as he promised, but it was still a bad idea! The Sunni chief in a Quad was never the real power, but an appointed puppet who would change frequently. They never spoke English and used an interpreter from their group to communicate. Unlike the Shi’a, they would not shake your hand or engage in too much friendly chatter. The Bravo Quad had a detainee interpreter we called Sami. He was actually friendly and I think genuinely wanted improved relations between the detainees and their American guards. Sami seemed above the politics of a Sunni Quad and was clearly respected by his fellow detainees, including the chief, as well as the guards. During the riot, he would have the old and sick join him in the holding area away from the protestors so they would not get hurt, and then would encourage the guards to show restraint. The Bravo Quad would eventually be moved to an even more restrictive area as they had a history of problems. Busses were sent in with a group of Air Force hardcore folks who were quick to take action when the detainees would not comply. This was my first opportunity to negotiate a peaceful exit, but it looked like it was going to get ugly. The 250 detainees refused to move and the Air Force unit was ready to force the issue. A Senior Chief was recently assigned to help oversee our Compound and insisted I get them to comply quickly or let the Air Force take over. My Compound Lieutenant and Chief Petty Officer (CPO) kept the impatient Air Force and Senior Chief off my back as I negotiated with the Bravo Quad detainee chief through Sami. My CPO would check with me frequently and let me know he was not sure how long he could keep the hard cores off my back. Eventually, I was able to reason with the Sunni THE LEADER USPS 136-120 “Tipton County’s NEWSPAPER Since 1886” 2001 Highway 51 South Covington, Tennessee 38019 Published Every Thursday by Tipton County Newspapers, LLC

Just plannin’ to plow

When Momma and Daddy bought our home place in downtown Rosemark the two features that influenced him was a barn and a garden plot. Jokingly (though later I wasn’t so sure) Daddy said, “well you can sleep anywhere and all you need is a roof over yo’ head.” But Momma needed a place to cook. Maybe Daddy meant sleep in the barn and cook in a stall. He wasn’t worried about running water or a bathroom ’cause it was seven years later before we had what is referred to as, “running water and indoor plumbing.” Mr. Walter Simonton sold the place (as is) which meant there wasn’t any guarantee th’owed in at all allowing for the barn if it fell down. Mr. Walter lived four houses up the road beside the little Presbyterian church and he owned a good bit of ground back ’en. The Fuller family was renting the place and occupied one side of the house until they relocated a few

hoof) as that would stop the plow line jerking and silenced the gees, haws, go’s and whoas. I’ll bet city slickers never realized that at least one huntin’ dog and one mule per family is named ‘Ole Blue’. Why? Because that’s just as American Southern as apple pie, Momma, Dinah Shore’s Chevrolet and cornbread with clabber milk. When we had a few of our front porch talks Daddy always favored a mule for garden work. His philosophy (Southernese for common sense and experience) was the mule was smarter; a better worker, could pull more, easier to train and retain learning. Now I ain’t saying what is right or wrong, but that’s what we did and it worked for us. There is a to’ sack full of learning and a cotton wagon of work putting in a garden, but I’m still plowing up and treasure my Southern redneck memories…Glory!

Plan for the expected — but prepare for the unexpected By EDWARD JONES Special to The Leader To enjoy a comfortable retirement lifestyle, you’ll need to have adequate financial resources in place. And that means you must plan for the expected — but prepare for the unexpected. In planning for the “expectedâ€? aspects of your retirement, consider these factors: • Your vision of your retirement lifestyle — What do you want to do during your retirement years? Spend more time with your family? Volunteer? Open your own business? Your expectations of your retirement lifestyle will dictate, to a large extent, your savings and investment strategies. • Your expenses — Once you’ve established a vision for your retirement lifestyle, you can begin to estimate the expenses you expect to incur during your retirement years. • Your income — You can expect to receive income from a variety of sources: Social Security, pensions, part-time employment and investments, such as your IRA, 401(k) and any taxable investment accounts you may have. You’ll need to estimate about how much income all these sources could provide. • Your withdrawal rate — If your investments are going to provide a significant part of your retirement income, you need to carefully manage annual withdrawals from your portfolio.

FINANCIAL FOCUS S TEVEN J. JONES

Your withdrawal rate is key in helping to ensure your portfolio provides for your needs as long as you need it. • Your portfolio reliance rate — Related to your portfolio withdrawal rate is your portfolio reliance rate — how much you rely on your portfolio to provide income. For instance, if you will need $50,000 per year in retirement, and $30,000 will come from your portfolio, your reliance rate will be 60% ($30,000 divided by $50,000). Your reliance rate will help determine how sensitive your strategy might be to outside events, such as market fluctuations.

investments that can provide you with a lifetime income stream. And your longevity will obviously also affect your annual portfolio withdrawal rate. • Inflation — At an average inflation rate of three percent, your cost of living will double in about 24 years. That’s why, even in retirement, you will need some growthoriented investments, such as quality stocks to ensure you can maintain your desired retirement lifestyle. But if the unexpected happens, and inflation takes off at a much higher than average level, you may need to consider a greater amount of investments that offer the potential for rising income.• Health care — Even after you’re on Medicare, which won’t cover everything, you need to prepare for the unexpected, such as a lengthy illness or the need for some type of

long-term care. You may also wish to “self-insure� to a certain extent by setting aside funds in a liquid, stable account. By positioning your investment portfolio for both the expected and the unexpected, you can go a long way toward enjoying the retirement lifestyle you seek. So plan ahead — and make the necessary adjustments as time goes by.the help you need, you can maximize the advantages of adding bonds to your investment mix.

While you need to be familiar with these expected elements of your retirement, you also must be prepared for the unexpected aspects, such as these: • Living longer than you expect — How long you can expect to live is somewhat of a mystery. If you were to live longer than you anticipate, would you be financially prepared? To help make sure your money lasts throughout your lifetime, you may need to consider

Continued from page A4 Chief, they gathered their belongings, leaving searched and cuffed as they accessed the bus. It got very tense, but after a few hours, the mission was complete and we readied the Bravo Quad for a new group of “Red� Sunni detainees. We were sad to see Sami go, but glad to be rid of a troublesome group. I was told it was the first force move of a “Red� Sunni group that did not require the use of less than lethal weapons at some point. Over the months we continued to endure more mortar/rocket attacks, more riots of the Sunnis, dust storms, scorpions and very hot days. It was a challenge to keep the

young guards in check, as it was understandably easy to be provoked to use force at times, but I was proud of the team as they showed remarkable restraint. As the summer wore on, a change in Camp Bucca and the entire nation of Iraq called the “Awakening� was taking hold, allowing more rational voices to be heard and peace to begin. Next week I will report on what happened to Sami and an exchange we had before he left Camp Bucca. I will also share how a rocket that killed and wounded many detainees may have helped encourage the detainees to reconcile with their captors.

Children strike it rich at church fishing hole Folks, if you were not at the corner of Hastings Way and Hwy. 59, last Saturday morning, you missed a fishing tournament full of smiles, cheers, high fives, fish, prizes, parents, TWRA and Covington First Baptist Church. I do not know how many children ended up at the fishing rodeo, but mid-way through registration, we counted more than 50 and the kids were still coming. Each year for the last three years, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, TWRA, combines with the Covington First Baptist Church to put on a first class fishing tournament for kids. All kids under 15 are welcome. The church furnishes the grounds and the lake and TWRA stocks the lake before the tournament each year. This year was no exception and there were hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks (small fee required). Representing the TWRA was game warden for Tipton County, Jake Yoes; Brian Kellum game warden for Wolf River; Daniel Plunkett Game Warden for

Lauderdale County and Wade Hendren, game warden for Lauderdale County. These game wardens were not only over seers for safety but they pitched in helping the boys and girls with their

Jamestown DarSay Burton

Greetings – I’ve good news as well as sad news! The good news with the rainfall on Saturday evening - and it was a lot of it with thunder and lightning, too “We did not have any more floods! We needed that rain, especially my tomatoes, but we didn’t need, nor want, any more floods! The sad news! Drummonds and all of its surrounding communities have just lost a truly remarkable man, “Mr. Eddie B,” (Eddie B. Woods) as many knew him. He passed away on June 7 in his family home in Drummonds, Tennessee, surrounded by his loving wife, partner and friend, Flossie (Mama Flossie!) and their loving family of six daughters and three sons! Most of them were right by his side. Mr. Eddie B was born August 18, 1921. Wow! Ninety years of a wonderful, loving, happy, Christian life. Of course, Mr. Eddie B was a Christian, “he just look like one,” and of course once you started talking to him, it just lit him up like a Christmas tree! What a man, what a faith! And both he and Mama Flossie loved to read The Leader. Especially excited about what I, Jamestown News, was going to say that week. They were always in my heart, as well as in my prayers (on my weekly prayer list.) Whenever we’ll meet or Mama and I spoke on the phone, she’d always remind me “to keep our names

on that list,” and “Girl, don’t you forget about our birthdays, either!” Which I never ever did! Sad that he’s no longer in our eyesight, but elating knowing Mr. Eddie B is standing front and center in the eyesight of God! Thanks from his family, to his beloved church, St. Paul M.B. of Drummonds, his beloved pastor, Rev. W.E. Gatlin, the Barlow funeral home in Covington, Rev. Quincy Barlow and staff and to the Munford Elementary School for their facility as well as St. Paul Chapel’s kitchen staff who always did an outstanding job. And a beautiful job, well-done on the eulogy done by their grandson, Minister Delandus Woods of Indiana. Let us continue to keep this lonely Christian family in our prayers, especially Mama Flossie and their children! Jamestown also suffered a loss of its own on Saturday. Services were held at Bright Hill for a former member, James Curtis Sherrill, father of L.C. Mason and Brenda Mason Bounds, members of Bright Hill. Thanks to Pastor S.P. Cole and the kitchen staff for a wonderful job well done. Millington Funeral Home also did an outstanding service. The family thanks each and every one of you, and the Sherrill family is in our prayers. It’s getting very close! Burton-Bass-Alston’s Labor Day (Sept. 2-5) is around the corner. If you plan on going, which we hope you do, I need you “to come on down” with your monies, okay? June 25 is the deadline.

See Chairman Eddie Jones, Sr., Barbara Miller or myself, A.S.A.P.! We need all of you! It just won’t be the same unless you’re there! Also, the Boykins Reunion is approaching quickly – July 4 weekend in Covington. See your contacts, Rudolph and Dollie Boykin or any other family member now! Tuesday night, president Mary Burton and teacher Willie Mae Burton were out at 5 p.m. for the weekly missionary meeting. Last Wednesday, June 8, at 3 p.m., the Jolly Cortenia Club’s June meeting was held in the lovely home of member Mildred Reed Sherrill of Covington. She served a lovely summer time menu. The Jamestown Community Health Organization is busy planning their second annual Night of Elegance, Oct. 22, 2011, at the Covington Country Club. There will be more information to follow or as time nears. President of JCHO is Minister Pearl Andrews. Gwen Cooke and Pam Cobbs Springfield are program planners. The JCHO is still collecting yearly $25 dues. Contact Mary Burton and Jessie Cooke if you still need to pay. We have our sick family and friends, Bessie Cobbs, Isiah Burton, Sr. Jennie Stewart, Connie and Christine Brown, Doris King, Ruth Alston, Ruth Griffin, Vernard “Big Boy” Burton, Danny Heaston, Charlene and David Sneed, Rev.

Hello everyone! Sure hope youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all enjoying this beautiful warm weather! I love it more and more each year as I grow older. The cold just goes right through me. I can now understand what my momma was talking about all those years before she passed away. My sister, Judy, and I were talking about that very thing just the other day; all those times Mom would say this or that and Judy and I both agreed â&#x20AC;&#x153;oh come on Mom," but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here to tell you today, now we know what she was talking about! WOW! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all I can say! You folks out there are the most dedicated

Almyra Libby Click

Hi everyone, Well, as I sat writing my notes Monday afternoon, the National Weather Station was predicting a possible tornado warning. Thank goodness the east side of Tipton County where we live only got about 10 minutes of light rain and no straight line winds like we did last week. As we drove through Brighton Sunday afternoon, we saw the high wind on Saturday really messed up some huge trees. I have put snacks in my linen closet now since these things are occurring so regularly. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tight, but I can squeeze in for a little while. When all the TV stations are covering this mess, it becomes quite frightening. Oh well, maybe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make it another week. This past Sunday, Charlie and I had the pleasure of sharing with many other folks the 50th wedding anniversary of our dear friends James and Theta Roane. It was so wonderful to see so many of our dear friends with whom we had worked through the years with the Republican Party. It was held at Garland Baptist Church and the fellowship room was so full of people you could hardly get around. But what a joy seeing and sharing conversations with so many good folks! Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day being on Sunday, June 19 is a very special day for all fathers or â&#x20AC;&#x153;daddies.â&#x20AC;? Men carry such a significant role in our lives; such as responsibility for one and as examples for their families and teaching as well as â&#x20AC;&#x153;learningâ&#x20AC;? to relax and enjoy this life. Have a Happy Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day all you dads out there! I only have wonderful memories of my father. I was the first of five children and, needless to say, I was spoiled rotten very early thanks to him. I tell Charlie all the time, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can thank my daddy for that!â&#x20AC;? My fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name was Mr. Floyd E. Houlihan, a very wonderful and hardworking man besides being so good looking. He was born and raised on Lookout Mountain in Tennessee. We went over there every summer on vacation while growing up until the kids started begging to go to the beaches in Florida. He took up deep-sea fishing, and my mom and us kids stayed on the beaches all day for a week. Wonderful, lasting memories! Salem Presbyterian Church Worship is at 11 a.m. every Sunday. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister.

people Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever known! All I did last week was to mention that we needed some more Bingo prizes and at least two different people brought things! Thank you so very much! Also we had two people bring a birthday gift to Ms. Shirley! Thank you readers, y'all are truly the best!! I know Ms. Shirley had a great day and thank you all who was praying for her poison ivy, which actually turned out not to be that at all. She was having an allergic reaction to some new medication! So your prayers were answered! I have a favor to ask once again of my readers. On June 25 there will be an opportunity for you to help us out. Ms. Patsy Fee will be at the Atoka Centennial from 9-5 making fresh fried pies for everyone to enjoy. The proceeds from the pies are going to go to Dunlap Retirement Center! We need dough rollers and cashiers to work the pie making booth. She would like for people to help as much as you can. She

has a schedule made up and I just want to throw this out there to any of you that could come and help Ms. Patsy fry her famous fried pies. The hours begin at: 9-11 a.m., 11-1 p.m., 1-3 p.m. and 3-5 p.m. If you know you can help out by rolling dough, please give me a call and let me know what time you can be there! Also, if you can come try and bring your dough roller; it will be so much fun! I hope I get to be real close to her booth as I will be having a booth myself telling people about Dunlap and what we have to offer. Our census is very low and we are in great need to have some new folks come and join us! I had one gentleman come out today and we all hope he gets to come! He visited McCalla and everyone down there came out of their rooms to greet him. He would be a great fit for that building! If he gets to come, I will let you know!

At first people think we are expensive. But when you look at what all you get for the money, your own private room, three meals a day, snacks at your finger tips, cleaning your room, doing your laundry, no dishes, no cooking for you, you just sit back and relax! This is where I want to be when I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take care of myself anymore! We have several couples in the community that keep telling me to save them a room; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be long! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love it!! All I can say is â&#x20AC;&#x153;bring it onâ&#x20AC;?! Well friends I must close out for now, but until next week, please be kind to everyone, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no use in going through life being an old fuddy-duddy and never smiling! Give a smile, give the Lord some of your time each day and then give somebody a big hug! God bless you all and thank you so much for reading!

Please remember during the month of June to bring school supplies such as paper, pencils, scissors, crayons, etc. to help our Appalachia Mission Team fill backpacks for the children at Giles Mobile Home Park in New Tazewell, Tennessee. There is a box at the entrance of the Fellowship Hall. Our V.B.S. is this week. The closing program will be June 17 at 6 p.m. at Thortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pool in Covington. Happy birthdays this week go to Jennie McDivitt and Andy McDill. Hope they are each the greatest! Sharon Presbyterian Church Worship is at 9 a.m. every Sunday. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. We welcome all members, friends and visitors. We are always thankful to our Dunlap residents who are able to be with us. Our prayer list consists of Marie Chumley, Rev. James R. Fee, Brice Fite, Raymond Griffin, Mary Kirk, Mary Moffatt, Danny Salmon and Marvin Turnange. Covington Church of Christ Worship is at 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. every Sunday. Bible study is at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings and 7 p.m. every Wednesday evening. Everyone is always welcome. Brother Mike Rogers is our minister and Brother Jeff Phillips is our associate minister. We have begun our Summer Series, which consists of special guest speakers every Wednesday evening. Our speakers will address the â&#x20AC;&#x153;struggles of today.â&#x20AC;? Our speaker for next week will be Brother Tim Alsup, from Great Oaks Church of Christ, discussing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christians and Social Tolerance.â&#x20AC;? Time again is 7 p.m. Please come! Happy birthdays this week go to Brenda Mason, Noah Liles, Kenneth Weir and Sharon Johnson. Hope they are each the greatest! Happy anniversaries go to Andy and Delores Whaley, Jeff and Charlie Coughlan, Rodger and Mary Beasley and Charles and Doris Yoakum. Congratulations! Jeff and Jennifer Phillips, John Combs and several other adults took our youth to Dry Ridge, Ken. for their vacation bible school. Pray for their safe return on Thursday, the 16th. In closing, Sherri Kidd, my daughter, and David Kidd, my son-in-law, have planted a garden. They planted all kinds of vegetables and fruits such as watermelon and cantaloupe. They promised we could have some. I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to go over and help weed. However, they had a unique idea; they used old roof shingles for the isles between the rows. That will help cut down on the weeding. Way to go, Kidds! My stepdaughter, Laura, and

her husband, Russ Quinn, went on an anniversary trip. They have shared 18 years together and have five young ladies. Congratulations to Laura and Russ! I would like to thank Mrs. Nina Busby for making me the sweetest and cutest angel made of kitchen hand tow-

We finally got that “HI” off us and got a rain Saturday! A quarter of an inch in the gauge but I think we got more than that. That wind blew corn down but most of it’s back up. Then yesterday, another storm in Arkansas that went below us. We just got a sprinkle or two then. We got VBS done at the Covington Church of Christ; the theme was Life of Moses and it was great! Now it’s vacation time! I had a wonderful day Saturday. Ellen Shankle Clark got up a reunion of all chorus members who sang under the wonderful leadership of Russell Phelps, whether at Byars-Hall or Covington High, and we started the day off with coffee, juice, fruit, etc. in the band room at Covington High, mingling. I took my scrapbook that I recently redid (everything was glued or taped in

We came back to the band room at 2 p.m. and practiced for two hours, then had a great supper at the home of Mrs. Jimmy Witherington (“Miss” Harvey). We had barbeque, beans, slaw, potato salad, brownies, cookies, fruit, chips. We were all stuffed, but left there happy and did our concert at 6:30 before family members. Mr. Phelps led us in “Sine Nomine”, “My Eternal King”, “Rainbow Connection”, “May Day Carol”, “Somewhere Out There”, and “From Sea to Shining Sea”. It was great! Thanks, Ellen and Mr. P! We were supposed to head uptown to sing at Music on the Square but the storm came through while we were in that soundproof room. We came out and there were limbs down in the parking lot. We were oblivious to it all! On our prayer list are Linda Gordon, Virginia Baxter,

work on money management. Service recipients and staff donated some library books to the people at the Goodwill Store in Millington. The center was closed Monday, May 30, but it reopened on Tuesday, May 31. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the flood victims here in the county and surrounding areas. The service recipients and staff enjoyed a pizza party courtesy of Heather Webb’s parents. We want to thank them for their love and compassion.

START YOUR OWN BUSINESS TODAY! Luke Smith of Covington is one of several area junior golfers who fared very well this season on the USJGT. Smith, 10, won Player of the Year honors. Photo by Oliver Smith

Local juniors excelling on golf tour By JEFF IRELAND sports@covingtonleader.com In four or five years some high school golf programs in Tipton County will be the beneficiary of a major influx of talent. Several junior golfers who play regularly at the Covington Country Club ruled the area United States Junior Golf Tour this season. Luke Smith, 10, played in eight tournaments from June 2010 to May 2011. He won three of them, took second in two others and was named the Boys Future Stars Division (Ages 9-10) Player of the Year, an honor given to the golfer with the lowest nine-hole average with at least five tournaments played. He secured the award by winning a tournament at Pickwick State Golf Course in May with a 76. “Luke’s strength is his ball-striking ability in hitting the long ball,” said his dad, Oliver Smith. “His drives consistently averaged around 215 yards.” Luke’s nine-hole stroke average this season was 39.1. After the USJGT season ended, Luke played in a prestigious tournament in Marion, Ark., and qualified to play at the Callaway Junior World Golf Championships in San Diego, Calif. The tournaments includes 1000 players

from 45 countries. He receives instruction from Bobby Cochran, a PGA professional at Mirimichi. “Although the USJGT golf tour consists of 26 kids throughout the area, the top players on tour are all from Covington and regularly play at the Covington Country Club,” Oliver Smith said. “Luke says his toughest competition lives right in his neighborhood at The Links.” Other locals who have found success on the tour are Scout Davis (tour championship winner), Cade Jones (one title), Rob Hendren (two top three finishes) and Aubree Jones (perennial winner in the girls division). Lomax, 10, competed in five tournaments in the fall, taking first in three and second in the other two. He was ranked No. 1 in his division heading into the spring, when he decided to focus on baseball. He plays for the Fultz prospects, a traveling team that is currently 44-11 and nationally-ranked. He also plays AAU basketball and flag football. “Luke is a great kid and worked very hard for player of the year honors,” said Ken Lomax, Brock’s father. “All the kids are very close and pull for one another.”

BEHIND THE ARTS

BY ECHO DAY

Visiting America's first resort: Hot Springs, Arkansas Editor’s note: This is the fourth in a 10-part series detailing historical sites, outdoor adventures and other family-friendly destinations no more than a day’s drive from Tipton County. Usually our day trips take us to different areas of West Tennessee, but this week we're going to venture across the Mississippi River and visit the area known for being America's first resort: Hot Springs, Arkansas. Part of the 1803 Louisiana Purchase, Hot Springs was the nation's first federally-funded protected area. It was discovered in 1804 by naturalist William Dunbar and chemist George Hunter who were sent by then-president Thomas Jefferson on a fact-finding mission of the property. The 143-degree water, which still flows from natural springs all over the city, has long been associated with healing. According to popular legend, warring tribes of Native Americans were willing to lay down their arms to bathe in the so-called Valley of the Vapors. Less than a quarter century after the springs were discovered by Dunbar and Hunter, structures had been constructed over several of the natural springs to shelter bathers. By 1921, Hot Springs was a popular resort, complete with gambling, a national park, healing thermal water spas and horse racing. However, the closing of casinos in the 1960s had turned Hot Springs into a more familyfriendly destination. Head west over the bridge and into the Natural State; there's plenty to see and do in just a day's time.

BATHHOUSE ROW

Visited by both the rich and poor, bathhouses grew in popularity during what is called the Golden Age of Bathing (the 19th and early 20th centuries), when people visited Hot Springs to be healed of various ailments. The advent of modern medicine contributed to the decline in their popularity and today only one bathhouse, The Buckstaff, is in operation. Stop by historic bathhouse row, in the heart of Hot Springs National Park, for tours. Don't miss the beautifully restored Fordyce, which also acts as the park's visitors center; Central Avenue.

SHOWING TRUE COLORS Barrie Foster started painting 12 years ago. After realizing that she didn't have to include the whole subject in a piece, but could focus on one segment and highlight it, she was able to abstract her works further and segment her compositions into color divisions. At left, a piece, inspired by activity at the Mid-South Fair, signifies another move to including people as her subjects as opposed to tractors or trucks like in her composition at right. Photos by Tyler Lindsey

A style all her own

Atoka artist develops a unique, abstract style to share with the community By TYLER LINDSEY tlindsey@covingtonleader.com “I put polka dots in this one because polka dots are fun and so are tractors,” said watercolor painter Barrie Foster when asked about one of her paintings. Living in the Atoka countryside since 1998, Foster has painted pretty much since she’s lived here. For the past 12 years, the Tipton County artist has not only been continually growing as a painter, but she has become quite a figure in the art community. Growing up, her background is gilded with multicultural heritage. Her father was in the foreign service state department so they lived in places like Dhaka, East Pakistan; Cairo, Egypt; and Paris, France during her preteen upbringing. After spending her teenage years in the States, Foster found

herself living with her husband in Phoenix, Ariz. from where she moved to Tipton County in 1998. “Living in so many places during my life had to play a big part in my influences in art,” she said. A painter friend from Phoenix spurred her on to start creating art herself once she moved to Atoka. From that time, the dominoes fell in such a way that spelled nothing but success for the flowering artist. She has grown to create a style largely her own amid a group of friends she says encouraged such growth. Foster works mainly in watercolor paints, but she has recently started dabbling in pastels. She began her work seriously painting tractors to imitate their actual appearances. The talent came naturally. As Foster progressed,

her nature to not be limited by arbitrary rules and guidelines led her artistic parameters to encompass more abstract compositions dictated through the use of crisp differentiations in pure pigments in her paints. “I rarely mix colors or fade colors into one another.” The result is an explosion of color that many times pays homage to color theory in subtle clues that point toward a small, separate presentation of primary colors, red, yellow and blue, for example. Her willingness to “break the rules” has led her to enlarge certain parts of objects she finds interesting that in the past have included heavy-duty diesel trucks, tractors and the fair. However, her more recent works have captured the human face and form and are interpreted through her

style. As a result, faces and objects become multicolored and are enhanced in that way. She began to enter shows having placed in more than 30 including five or six national shows. “Usually I choose colors that translate to the value of a certain area.” The value corresponds to how light or dark and area looks. Joining the board at the Historic Ruffin Theater in 2006, she told them that “there are a lot of artists in Tipton County and that they should start an art league.” Hence, from then on, the Tipton Arts League was founded. Since then, the group has been doing many things to stir the coals in the art culture that’s evident in the area. Foster’s home studio, which is the size of a twocar garage, has become the SEE ARTS, PAGE B10

Football camp On June 11, Jon Poe’s inaugural youth football camp, “Run at Your Dreams,” was held at Frazier Park in Covington for anybody interested in football or in learning how to reach your goals. “I wasn’t sure that it would end up quite this big,” said Covington High School assistant football coach Jon Poe, when asked about his upcoming football camp he’s co-organizing. “There will be pro football and college athletes there to work with the kids. ” Coach Poe said that the idea started with him just wanting to give back to the community that helped him out so much through helping younger people achieve their goals in a football oriented atmosphere.

AMERICA'S FIRST NATIONAL PARK

The first property reserved by the federal government for preservation purposes, Hot Springs is the smallest national park but there's still plenty to do and see. Drive up the winding mountainside road to the Mountain Tower where you can gaze out over miles of mountains and the city of Hot Springs. If you're interested in more than a day trip, bring your tents and set up camp near Gulpha Gorge; take the family wading in the warm creek. See nps.gov/hosp for more information.

WATER PARK, NATURE TRAILS

Hot Springs is also known for Magic Springs and Crystal Falls, its water and theme park. The park also has a summer concert series featuring Neon Trees (June 18), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts (June 25), Blake Shelton (July 9) and Casting Crowns (Aug. 13), among others. See magicsprings.com for more information. Away from the hustle and bustle of Hot Springs proper is a beautiful garden you can't miss. Garvan Woodland Gardens, the University of Arkansas's botanical garden, is located on a 210acre peninsula on Lake Hamilton. See garvangardens.com for directions.

The great yard sale conspiracy By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER Pastor, Family of God Fellowship Most things in life are not always as they seem. For some reason one person will say one thing and the person hearing will hear something altogether different. This appears to be the case between the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly. One of the most frequent comments around our residence is, "Did you hear what I just said?" Of course, that does not really bother me. What does bother me is when I answer in the affirmative, she will reply by saying, "What did I just say?" It is not that I do not hear what she says; I'm just not listening to what she says. There is a big difference between hearing and listening. I hear many things but I certainly do not pay attention to most of it. If you would listen to most of the stuff said these days, not much of it is worth listening to, at least for long. This illustrates the basic difference between a husband and wife. A husband always says what he means; but the wife always means what she says. Complication comes when the husband does not understand what she says and it is almost as if they are using a different language or at least a code most husbands are not privy to. The problem is the most people do not say what they mean. When someone says they are having a Garage Sale they do not mean they are going to sell their garage. In fact, they do not even mean that they are going to sell things from their garage. What they do mean is they plan to jam their garage full of junk to sell to unsuspecting customers. Most of what sells at a garage sale has nothing whatsoever to do with the garage. In fact, only half of what they are selling

can fit into the garage while the rest spills out into the driveway. The same thing goes with a Yard Sale. When somebody advertises they are going to have a Yard Sale they have no intention whatsoever of selling their yard. What they are going to do is pile their yard full of junk they do not want and sell to customers who will in turn put it in their yard sale next week. When it comes to Yard Sales, I think there is only a certain amount of items that keep circulating throughout the community. I once had an easy chair that I did not want anymore and set it out by the street. It was badly broken and I did not have the time to run it over to the dump. By next morning, my chair was gone. Two nights later, it appeared out in front of the house five doors down. The next morning it was gone only to reappear five more doors down two days later. I believe that chair is still circulating through the community. If people were honest in what they were doing, they would put up a sign that says, "Junk for Sale." I did see a sign on the thrift store once that said, "We buy junk and sell treasures." For some reason people think that, if they buy something at a yard sale it must be a treasure. But the way I think is this, if somebody has something in his or her yard sale to sell at a greatly discounted price how good could it be? This brings me back to the hearing and listening dilemma. I got up last Friday morning, as usual, and discovered that the other resident of our house was missing. I went to the kitchen and found a little note that said, "Make your own breakfast I'm at our daughter’s yard sale." At first, I did not quite get it. Then I remembered sometime during the week there was some mention about

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

a yard sale on Friday. But I was not listening. After all, what in the world do I have to do with a yard sale? I had a cup of coffee and then went back to the bedroom to get dressed for the day. I went to the closet looking for one of my favorite shirts to wear for the day. I could not find it. I then tried to find my favorite sneakers I have had for 29 years. It is taken that long just to break them into where they are comfortable to wear. As with my favorite shirt, my shoes were nowhere to be found. Some books I have had for years were missing along with some other personal items. I was beginning to think we had been robbed. What robber would steal such things? It would have to be a rather desperate person to do that kind of cherry picking during a robbery. Then a thought grabbed hold of my mind with the ferocity of a mama grizzly. If I recollect correctly, she was talking about these things in the same context as the yard sale at our daughter's place. She wouldn't! Later that afternoon she came home, handed me $3.78, and said, "Here's your share of the yard sale." Not listening to what you are hearing carries an awful price. The Bible is faithful in warning us, "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches" (Revelation 3:6 KJV). God always says what He means and means what He says. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, 1471 Pine Road, Ocala, FL 34472. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Dr. Tim Fite Director of Schools Tipton County PUBLIC NOTICE

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice to the public of its intent to reimburse eligible applicants for eligible costs to repair or replace facilities damaged by the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds, and Àooding, occurring April 19, 2011 and continuing. This notice applies to the Public Assistance (PA) and Hazard Mitigation Grant (HMGP) programs implemented under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. § 5121-5207. Under a major disaster declaration (FEMA-1979DR-TN) signed by the President on May 9, 2011, the following counties have been designated adversely affected by the disaster and eligible for PA: Benton, Carroll, Crockett, Dyer, Gibson, Henderson, Henry, Houston, Lake, Lauderdale, Madison, Montgomery, Obion, Shelby, Stewart, and Tipton. Additional counties may be designated at a later date without further public notice. The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) is available statewide. This public notice concerns activities that may affect historic properties, activities that are located in or affect wetland areas or the 100-year Àoodplain, and critical actions within the 500-year Àoodplain. Such activities may adversely affect the historic property and Àoodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to Àood damage. Presidential Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 require that all federal actions in or affecting the Àoodplain or wetlands be reviewed for opportunities to relocate and evaluated for social, economic, historical, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Where there is no opportunity to relocate, FEMA is required to undertake a detailed review to determine what measures may be taken to minimize future damages. The public is invited to participate in the process of identifying alternatives and analyzing their impacts. FEMA has determined that for certain types of facilities there are normally no alternatives to restoration in the Àoodplain or wetland. These are facilities that meet all of the following criteria: 1) FEMA’s estimate of the cost of repairs is less than 50% of the cost to replace the entire facility and is less than $100,000; 2) the facility is not located in a Àoodway; 3) the facility has not sustained major structural damage in a previous Presidentially declared Àooding disaster or emergency; and 4) the facility is not critical (e.g., the facility is not a hospital, generating plant, emergency operations center, or a facility that contains dangerous materials). FEMA intends to provide assistance for the restoration of these facilities to their pre-disaster condition, except that certain measures to mitigate the effect of future Àooding or other hazards may be included in the work. For example, a bridge or culvert restoration may include a larger waterway opening to decrease the risk of future washouts. For routine activities, this will be the only public notice provided. Other activities and those involving facilities that do not meet the four criteria are required to undergo more detailed review, including study of alternate locations. Subsequent public notices regarding such projects will be published if necessary, as more speci¿c information becomes available. In many cases, an applicant may have started facility restoration before federal involvement. Even if the facility must undergo detailed review and analysis of alternate locations, FEMA will fund eligible restoration at the original location if the facility is functionally dependent on its Àoodplain location (e.g., bridges and Àood control facilities), or the project facilitates an open space use, or the facility is an integral part of a larger network that is impractical or uneconomical to relocate, such as a road. In such cases, FEMA must also examine the possible effects of not restoring the facility, minimizing Àoodplain or wetland impacts, and determining both that an overriding public need for the facility clearly outweighs the Executive Order requirements to avoid the Àoodplain or wetland, and that the site is the only practicable alternative. State of Tennessee and local of¿cials will con¿rm to FEMA that proposed actions comply with all applicable state and local Àoodplain management and wetland protection requirements. FEMA also intends to provide HMGP funding to the state of Tennessee to mitigate future disaster damages. These projects may include construction of new facilities, modi¿cation of existing, undamaged facilities, relocation of facilities out of Àoodplains, demolition of structures, or other types of projects to mitigate future disaster damages. In the course of developing project proposals, subsequent public notices will be published if necessary as more speci¿c information becomes available. The National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to take into account the effect of their undertakings on historic properties. Those actions or activities affecting buildings, structures, districts or objects 50 years or older or that affect archeological sites or undisturbed ground will require further review to determine if the property is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (Register). If the property is determined to be eligible for the Register and FEMA’s undertaking will adversely affect it, FEMA will provide additional public notices. For historic properties not adversely affected by FEMA’s undertaking, this will be the only public notice. As noted, this may be the only public notice regarding the above-described actions under the PA, IA, and HMGP programs. Interested persons may obtain information about these actions or a speci¿c project by writing to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Joint Field Of¿ce, 5388 Hickory Hollow Parkway, Antioch, TN 37013. Comments should be sent in writing to the attention of W. Montague Win¿eld, Federal Coordinating Of¿cer, at the above address within 15 days of the date of this notice.

Proposed Base Flood Elevation Determination for the City of Munford and the Unincorporated Areas of Tipton County, Tennessee and Case No. 11-04-1663P. The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) solicits technical information or comments on the proposed Base (1-percent-annual-chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) shown in the Flood Insurance Study and/or on the Flood Insurance Rate Map for your community. These proposed BFEs are the basis for the floodplain management measures that your community is required to either adopt or show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program. For a detailed listing of the proposed BFEs and information on the statutory period provided for appeals, please visit FEMA’s website at https://www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/Scripts/bfe_ main.asp, or call the FEMA Map Information eXchange (FMIX) toll free at 1-877-FEMA MAP.

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 chart on the back, we only detected 6 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 Memphis 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 Town of Mason’s 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 EPA can be viewed online at www.state.tn.us/environment/dws/dwassess.php or you may contact the Water System to obtain copies of specific assessments. 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. Community water systems are required to disclose the detection of contaminants; however, bottled water companies are not required to comply with this regulation. 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 Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Este informe contiene información muy importante. Tradúscalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.

For more information about your drinking water, please call Chris Trimble at (901) 294-2308. How can I get involved? Our Water Board meets on the second Monday at 7:00 p.m. at The Mason City Hall. . 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 Due to all water containing dissolved contaminants, occasionally your water may exhibit slight discoloration. We strive to maintain the standards to prevent this. We at The Town of Mason work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children’s future. 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). 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) 294-3525

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.

Lead and Copper: During the most recent round of Lead and Copper testing, 0 out of 11 households sampled contained concentration exceeding the action level. 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 0.02 ppm. The aesthetic limit for iron is 0.3 ppm. Lead: 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. The City of Covington 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

ARTS

Continued from page B1 meeting place for many artistic workshops enjoyed by many over the past few years. Additionally, the 23-member group makes sure that venues are available for artists to show their work and that opportunities are presented for art to be sold as well. “The best thing about us is that we are laid back, but we’re also very creative,” she said. “We are all very different artists. I think that’s important because

B10.indd 1

we feed off of each other that way. Just hanging out with the other members makes me want to go home and start creating.” The nationally award-winning artist seeks to continue abstracting object while pursuing pastels in an environment that suits her ambitions. “It’s gorgeous here and it lends itself well to outdoors and landscapes,” she said. “It’s why I love living here.”

1. Preheat oven to 350. 2. Blend the tomatoes, onion, garlic & tomato sauce in a blender. Put aside. 3. Add the bay leaf & cloves to a big pot of water. Let it boil for about 15 minutes. Remove. Add spaghetti and cook according to instructions. Do not salt the water. Drain and set aside. 4. Melt the butter in a medium pan. Add blended tomato sauce & chicken bouillon. 5. Saute till it deepens in color ~5-7 minutes. Remove from heat. 6. Add the crema agria to tomato sauce. If you taste the sauce at this point it should be on the salty side. I also like to add a pinch of dried parsley at this point too. 7. Combine the spaghetti, ham and tomato sauce in a 9x12 casserole dish. Mix really well. Sprinkle the cheese over the whole casserole. Cover with foil and put in oven for 15 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. 8. *Crema agria can be found in the refrigerated mexican section but in a pinch use sour cream or cream cheese This recipe is brought to you by Just A Pinch. You can find this recipe and many others at www.justapinch.com. They not only offer you great food ideas, but also supply you with acorresponding shopping list.
