Munford sailor assists with relief effort By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com

GUANTANAMO BAY, CUBA – Last week a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck the island nation of Haiti and a local man stationed in Cuba has found himself among those assisting with the relief effort. A Munford High School graduate, Eddie Nelson enlisted in the Navy and has worked as a corpsman for several years. Two months ago, he arrived at U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, a military installation which has housed a prison for combatants captured in Afghanistan and Iraq. "I didn’t know what to expect, but I was excited about coming. I had only been told two months

prior that I would be stationed here, so it was all very short fused," Nelson said. "Now that I have settled in, I really enjoy it here. The water is amazing. I spend as much of my time as possible freediving for conch and other shells. I mean, it’s the Caribbean. What better place to be?" Nelson said last week started off like any other week. He went into work on Tuesday, ordered supplies and verified shipments; he had lunch with friends and resumed his normal routine. That evening while watching TV and talking on the phone, his barracks building began to shake. "My TV started to sway and a picture frame fell off the wall. I would say that it lasted around

15 seconds or so," he said. "I went outside to the awning to see if anybody else had felt it. Sure enough, there were around a dozen people on the walkway asking the same questions." Nelson said he believed the quake to be offshore and soon the base had issued a tsunami watch; it was lifted a few hours later. "We had some large waves but nothing serious. I turned on the news to see if anybody had reported anything, but there really wasn't too much being said about it, so I shrugged it off and went to bed." The next day, he said, started off "pretty unassumingly," he said, until an announcement of

Save your hard earned money; get free tax assistance By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com It’s that time of the year again and there’s no getting around it. Tax season is here. But it doesn’t have to be all dread and gloom thanks to the continued partnership between United Way of the Mid-South and Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC). The Tipton County United Way of the Mid-South’s Earned Income Tax Credit/Smartbucks Alliance (EITCA) is committed to change the way people have their tax returns prepared. The EITCA offers free tax preparation through its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Established in 2007, the annual community VITA partnership provides eligible residents no-cost tax assistance in applying for EITC and in filing their annual taxes. “Sadly, too many low to moder-

ate income tax filers pay ridiculous fees for tax preparation and outrageous fees and interest to get their tax refund back quickly,” said Yvonne Howard, United Way Community Impact Specialist. “Many don’t realize that by getting their refund rapidly, they are actually getting a loan. If the Internal Revenue Service rejects their tax return, they are subject to additional loan interest expenses, until the paid tax preparer that gave them their rapid refund receives their payment. ” EITC is a refundable credit for people who work but do not earn high incomes. The EITC is a valuable tool which helps eligible taxpayers lower their taxes or receive refunds. The IRS wants all eligible taxpayers to take the credit they deserve. Those who qualify could pay less federal tax or pay no tax at all. In some cases, they could receive a refund beyond the amount of

tax withheld. “Current IRS data shows that a lot of Tennessee residents still don’t claim the EITC or they don’t know about it,” said Howard. In tax year 2006, the IRS reports that 5,605 Tipton County residents applied for EITC and received $11,630,193. “We know that many more in Tipton County qualify for EITC and our goal is to make them aware of that,” added Howard. “According to the IRS, 20-25 percent of people eligible for EITC do not claim it.” To qualify for the EITC, taxpayers must meet certain guidelines and must file a tax return. New for tax year 2009, the amount of EITC increased for workers with a third qualifying child and the rules have changed for determining who is a qualifying child.

BURLISON – The Tennessee Valley Authority has proposed improvements in the electric service it provides to Covington and Burlison, including a proposed substation. If plans go as proposed, the new substation will be constructed near the intersection of Hwy. 59 and Garland Drive in Burlison. Improvements will also bring seven miles of 161-kilovolt transmission line to the new substation. These improvements, said the TVA, will relieve overloaded equipment and provide reliable power to Southwest Tennessee Electric's customers in the Burlison area. But the TVA is seeking input on the proposed project from the public. "TVA's process for siting new transmission projects is designed to allow public input at all stages," said media contact Myra Ireland. "TVA is committed to working

with area stakeholders to address concerns during the course of the project." An open house will be held Thursday, Jan. 21 from 3-7 p.m. at the Chamber Center on Covington's historic court square. During the event, several alternate routes from a network of eight alternative line segments and three tap point locations will be presented. According to press releases and project information, the TVA is interested in receiving comments on the potential of the proposed action to affect the environment or historic properties and would like to identify any other issues associated with the proposal. Other comments and concerns will also be addressed. Persons unable to attend the meeting may submit written questions to TVA Siting and Environmental Design specialist Chris Austin SEE TVA, PAGE A3

Texas’ Most Wanted arrested in Mason By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com MASON – Last week, one of Texas' most wanted fugitives was arrested in Mason during a drug investigation. Roydon Riley Stone, 40, has been wanted by the Nueces County, Texas Sheriff's Office since 1999 for violation of probation on a possession of methamphetamine conviction. "This was a great capture and drug bust by the deputies in the patrol division," said Sheriff J.T. "Pancho" Chumley. "The deputies took the initiative with a tip, ran with it and it resulted in the arrests." Tipton County deputies had

Continued from Page A1 the devastation in Haiti. Nelson said his commanding officer, Captain Monte Bible, informed the sailors initial reports were not good. "He told us to be prepared to start helping out. Then he told us why we were all called in. There was an inbound Coast Guard H-60 with three casualties, all of whom needed immediate life-saving care. That would be he first of many helicopters to land at the hospital." Previously stationed aboard the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima (LHD7), Nelson helped with departure assistance

been transformed from a military detention camp into the trauma hub for the relief effort. "Guantanamo was going to be of limited use in the beginning. Now, we are the center for all of this. We have a fleet hospital manned and ready with augmentees from all over the country. We have an overflow urgent care unit set up in our parking lot. Our helipad (and I) was certified to land H-53s. We are expecting a lot of casualties in the coming weeks." Additionally, the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70), the USS Bataan (LHD-5) and the USNS Comfort (T-AH-20) are all in port, providing emergency supplies and medical

for American citizens in Lebanon in 2006. His experience aboard the ship helped him land helicopters last week. "Because of my experience on my ship, I was asked to signal the helicopters to land safely," he said. "I felt comfortable enough to do it. Besides, it was me or nobody else." Nelson said he suited up and helped to land his first helicopter safely, then later landed his first helicopter at night safely. "It was a pretty awesome feeling," said the corpsmen. "Lots of pats on the back and 'atta boys' were given after that first helo lifted off safely." In the last week, Guantanamo Bay has

"We had a John Doe arrive with a double amputation. Both legs were gone, one above the knee and one below," he said. "He was intubated and unconscious when he was brought off the helicopter. After he was stabilized in the ER, the amazing staff there took the time to search through the hundreds of missing persons photos on the Internet to identify the man. They successfully found him and alerted the proper chan-

nels that he was alive and in our hospital. They did it with another patient we had as well. That's a good feeling." For the past week he and his team have been working in six-hour shifts – six hours on, six hours off – and are fighting fatigue. But they don't mind. "A lot of these people are already tired and worn down. This isn't even the beginning; the

Tipton County Trustee, Kristie Maxwell, wants to remind homeowners that some relief is available to qualified applicants. Through the state’s property tax relief program, relief is available to low-income senior citizens, disabled residents, 100% disabled veterans, and widows of disabled veterans. “If anyone thinks they might qualify, please come in or call our office�, said Maxwell. “You never know if you qualify unless you try.� Qualifying seniors must be 65 years or older on or before December 31, 2009 and they must own and use the property on which they are applying as their primary residence. The value of the property does not determine whether you can apply tax relief. If your residence is a mobile home, a copy of your title or bill of sale is required.

Doctor’s Discovery Helps Diabetics PHILADELPHIA – A team of doctors has found that a new formulation of exotic sounding ingredients gives new hope to diabetics. The formula, called Cinnatrol™ promotes healthy blood sugar levels by effectively metabolizing glucose into energy. In a research study, all patients taking just one capful of the liquid (one ounce) daily, dramatically lowered their blood sugar levels compared to a placebo group. Another scientific study found that an ingredient in Cinnatrol made insulin 20 times more capable of converting blood sugar to energy. While individual results vary, one patient in the study lowered his blood sugar from 220-245 to the 100-130 range in only 28 days, despite being instructed not to change his dietary habits or physical activity. Some patients, under their doctors care, have been able to reduce or eliminate their need for diabetic drugs. Scientists say that Cinnatrol actually helps diabetic drugs work more effectively. Cinnatrol is available without a prescription at pharmacies or call 1-800-339-3301. Now at: 839 Highway 51 S Covington, TN 38019 (901) 476-9444

of 2009. Also, if you had investment income, it must be $3,100 or less for the year. “The mission of the alliance is to increase the awareness of the EITC that low-to-moderate income people are entitled to,” said Howard. “And to get the information out to those eligible, we’ve set up a VITA preparation site to eliminate predatory tax preparations. All volunteer tax preparers are IRS trained and certified.” Another mission of the alliance is to increase financial literacy. Plans are being made to make the alliance a year long effort, by setting up financial literacy councils and workshops, stressing the importance of saving and assets building. “We are providing financial education resources. We want to help people improve their financial literacy and learn and how to save,” said Howard. “In these tough

economic times, every dollar saved is crucial.” One of the most important benefits to using a VITA site, is that tax preparation is done for free. “An eligible person can file their return through us and have their refund back in about 7-10 days,” stress Howard. “It makes no sense to pay money to have someone file for you and give you a loan when approximately a week later you can have your money for free.” VITA is targeted mainly for those residents whose income falls below $45,000 or who have uncomplicated returns. But tax assistance is offered to all. If a tax payer hasn’t applied for the EITC before and they qualify, they can amend up to three years of tax returns and file an amended return to receive EITC from those

years. Free electronic filing will also be offered at the VITA sites. Tax payers who file and have their refunds deposited directly into their accounts can expect to have their money back in 7-10 days. Paper filing is also available for those who wish to mail their taxes in, but that process will delay the refunds. Free tax preparation and EITC assistance can be found at the DSCC Jimmy Naifeh Center, Building “B” in the Learning Resource Center (LRC) and in room 143, Mondays and Wednesdays from 2-7 p.m. from Jan. 20-April 14. Tax payers need to bring their Social Security cards, a picture ID, their W2s and 1099s and their bank account information for direct deposit. The IRS has easy-touse tools and resources to help you determine if you qualify and claim the EITC benefit. Visit www. irs.gov/eitc for free information and forms, or call 1-800-829-1040. Details about the credit also can be found in IRS Publica-

Being more proactive instead of reactive can save lives The natural disaster in Haiti has the world talking and coming together to help the victims of the massive 7.0 earthquake which struck the tiny island nation on Tuesday, Jan. 12 at approximately 4:30 p.m. According to the European Union, last week’s quake killed an estimated 200,000 people, left 250,000 injured and 1.5 million homeless. The poor people of Haiti have had to endure more than 50 aftershocks of magnitude-4.5 or greater, including a 6.0 yesterday morning. Although after the disaster the world responded with monetary gifts, volunteers, doctors, food and search personnel, it will not be enough to help those who have perished in the catastrophe. Where would the Haitian people be if the world would have responded to their needs before the JUST MY VIEW earthquake? Would the death count be much lowSHERRI O NORATI er? Would more people still have their homes? Would more families still be intact instead of the mothers and fathers searching who are now searching for their children who were still at school, or the thousands of children who are now orphaned? Watching the news, almost all accounts refer to the fact that Haiti is one of the poorest nations on the earth. Well, if that’s a well-known fact, why wasn’t it addressed? How much cheaper would it have been in lives and money, if countries had extended a neighborly hand to help or show them how to build safe buildings which could have withstand the damaging effects of hurricanes or earthquakes? Or if the government of Haiti would have had an emergency contingency plan for such events and the foresight to ask for assistance before it became a requirement? Would have, could have should have. It’s too late now, but thanks goodness, the world has responded now. Requests for monetary assistance have gone viral through the use of the Internet and hundreds of millions of dollars have been collected through various agencies. The Red Cross has set up an easy way for those wanting to help by using their cell phones. Texting “Haiti” to 90999 donates $10 to the American Red Cross. The $10 will be charged to your phone bill. The American Red Cross is reporting that over $22 million has been donated so far by text messaging. Those wishing to donate more may text more than once. Locally, LeChic Boutique has joined in and partnered with Soles4Souls, Inc., to collect shoes for victims. “As we struggle to comprehend the magnitude of this disaster, we can not forget how important basic necessities – such as shoes – will be in the ongoing rescue and rebuilding efforts,” said Debbie Gordon, owner of LeChic Boutique. LeChic, located on the square in Covington, has placed a collection box inside the store for residents to drop off new or gently used shoes. Shoes most needed are athletic shoes, flat shoes, rain boots and work boots for infants thru adult male and females. The box will be located inside the corridor of LeChic during closed business hours for convenience. “We hope that we are able to collect one pair of shoes per family in Tipton County,” added Gordon.

Readers' Views To All Tipton County Residents: I don't understand why there are so many people downgrading BMH-Tipton. All around us are those that say they would rather die than go there. That only lets others know how little they think of them self. Whether they realize it or not, they, along with every other Tipton County resident, make up our county. Plainly, we 'are' Tipton County. We are the community in which we live. I've been a resident of Tipton County for 46 years. Every time either I or my children have been treated, whether in the emergency room, as an out-patient or admitted, we have received nothing shy of the absolute best care. On Dec. 24, 2009, I became ill with pneumonia and went to BMH-Tipton for treatment. I was greeted by great nurses, caring doctors and a friendly staff. I underwent a series of procedures, blood work, x-rays, etc. ending in my admission into the hospital on Christmas morning. Yes, Christmas morning. I trusted God to send me the right nurses, the right doctor and those that he would have to care for me. Guess what? That is exactly what God did. Have you ever considered praying before you go anywhere, whether it be the hospital, grocery store, or simply to run errands? God hears and God answers those that ask, believing. In April and September, 2009, I received treatment from a Memphis hospital. I have to say

those times were the worst hospital experiences I have ever had in my life. I couldn't believe their attitudes. They were arrogant, mouthy, callous and cantankerous people. You name it, they were that and then some. I had hoped once I had finished the paperwork, etc. with all of the manic depressed people there, when I got through to see the doctor, my visit would be better. That definitely was not the case. The doctors were even more impossible; their main characteristic being insensitivity. All I am trying to say is Tipton Countians can continue passing by their hospital, but all the while, more and more Memphians are dying in their hospitals. In fact, far more die in Memphis hospitals, on the average, than in our very own BMH-Tipton. After all, where do you go first to get stabilized when you call for an ambulance, BMH-Tipton. You're seen there before you are ever transported to another hospital in Memphis or elsewhere. It all boils down to this: If you don't have something to say or anything good to say to encourage or lift another person up, then it's best to keep your negative thoughts to yourself. This is especially true for the residents of a town when speaking about an organization in 'their' own town. Baptist Memorial HospitalTipton: I love and appreciate each one you. I especially appreciate the emergency room staff that cared for me the night of Dec. 24 and

the nurses, doctors and staff on the 2nd floor. I was in Room 222. I would also like to extend a special 'thanks' to the extra kind and nice nurses: Tressa, Melanie, Terry, Lynn, Emily, Donna and Ms. Mary. As a team, you started my IV and cared for me, always wearing a smile. Keep up the good work and remember those who never have a kind work to say about our community hospital. Just remember they are all sick anyway, in more ways than one. You do a superb job! Cynthia Moore Atoka

Start Monday and finish up Tuesday Since Blue Monday was always wash day, Tuesday was ironin’ day. A funny set up. Sometimes Momma might start trying to iron late Monday afternoon, but gen’ly she would get a good start early Tuesday morning. After the clothes dried all day Monday, Momma would tell me, “go gather the clothes.” This meant get them off the clothesline. You know, you gather clothes like you gather the vegetables out of the garden. I’d have to fight the dogs, as they wanted to

We gen’ly kept a bushel basket and a washtub on the back porch for toting clothes and vegetables. Friends, do memories bring back yo’ wobbly steps?

the pins, drag the clothes off the line, and drop them in a tub or basket. Now the trick was to get one foot up on the step, hold the door open, balance a over flowing basket full of clothes, and make it to the back porch without falling down or getting ruptured. One lesson is; don’t pull the screen door open real hard, or the spring will fly off and belt you upside the head. That hurts worse than a mad, snorting Black Angus bull running over you.

Emphatically you are reminded not to mix the whites and colored. I also stood on a metal five-gallon bucket to even reach the clothesline. The fun began.

Poachers caught on tape by hunters By ECHO DAY eday@covingtonleader.com LONGTOWN – Game wardens in Tipton and Fayette counties are searching for poachers who endangered the lives of three hunters two weeks ago. What the poachers don't know is that they were caught illegally hunting by Tipton County hunters with a video camera. "I don't go in the woods without it," said Lee Carver of Covington. "They don't know who might be videoing." Carver and friend Brandon Wilson took Wilson's 8-year-old son Jonathan with them as they hunted deer for the last time this season. While in a Fayette County field, the three hunters saw a truck approach, a hunter emerge from the back seat and shoot three different times. "We heard a gunshot and then we heard a bullet hit the trees beside us," Carver said. "We got down on the ground and sat there for a minute, then eased up." Eight-year-old Jonathan said he felt scared. "(When I saw them I thought) they would probably shoot at us," he said. Carver said the poacher, who was sitting in the rear seat of the pickup and had to be let out by a passenger, shot at the herd of doe a second time. This is when Carver began filming. "The bullet hit down in the same thicket we were in," he said. "It scared us." The video shows the truck pulling up even with the doe, then shooting a third time and pulling off down the road. "It happens all the time over there, these road riders," Carver added. Carver and Wilson turned the video over the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency in hopes the poachers would be found and punished. Tipton County Game Warden Jake Yoes said the incident is "upsetting." "It's very upsetting knowing there's a man taking his son hunting, filming his son's deer hunt to have the memories, and this guy jumps out of a truck and shoots directly at the deer that's between him and the people filming," he said. "It makes you furious. He could have easily struck and killed (them)." Yoes said this incident is not only a perfect example of why it's illegal to shoot from a public road, but also a perfect example of why it's illegal to hunt from a vehicle. "You don't know what's beyond that deer." According to Yoes, the state is considering charging the poachers with felony reckless endangerment. Last week, Jimmy Butler Jr., a local businessman and Mason reserve police officer, was convicted of poaching in Fayette County. His hunting privileges were revoked for eight years and he will never again be a law enforcement officer. Yoes and Fayette County Game Warden Ty Inmon are searching for any information about the late model Ford pickup that appears in the video. Two-tone with a dark, perhaps black, top and a light gray bottom, the truck also has a silver toolbox and a brushguard. Anyone with information is asked to call the TWRA poaching hotline at 800-831-1173.

Red Cross asks for monetary donations The Mid-South Chapter of the American Red Cross has received several donations of clothing, water and food. While this is appreciated, the chapter can only accept monetary donations at this time. Monetary donations will be able to transfer to Haiti in a immediate fashion to help with the problems and needs currently at hand. If you have any questions about how to make a monetary donation to the Red Cross and their Haiti relief fund, please contact The Mid-South Chapter of the American Red Cross at 901-672-6351.

On Nov. 23, 2009, 25th Judicial District Attorney General Mike Dunavant was the recipient of the CPIT Excellence Award from the Tennessee Chapter of Children's Advocacy Centers, at the 6th Annual Connecting for Children's Justice Conference at the Sheraton Music City Hotel in Nashville.

discipline to strengthen their skills and the work has paid off. From 2007 to 2009 his district has had a 200 percent increase in cases accepted for prosecution and secured more overall child abuse convictions as compared to the prior two-year period. General Dunavant is passionate and believes in the CPIT process. He has provided and attended many team trainings so that he and his teams are educated on the most current information concerning child abuse issues. He knows that teamwork is essential in investigating and prosecuting cases. General Dunavant has been instrumental in partnering to develop new policies on a state and local level regarding child abuses issues. Recently he was influential in the creation of a Drug Endangered Child Protocol

for all five counties in the 25th Judicial District. General Dunavant's district is the first multi-county district throughout the state to implement the protocol. Even more recently he has become a newly appointed member of the Tennessee Joint Task Force on Children's Justice/Child Sexual Abuse." General Dunavant would like to thank all of the members of the respective CPIT teams in Lauderdale, Tipton, Fayette, Hardeman, and McNairy counties for their tireless and diligent work to protect and respond to children suffering from abuse and neglect in the 25th Judicial District. He would also like to thank Bethany Kirby for nominating him for such award and recognition, and he is honored and humbled to accept the award on behalf of all CPIT team members.

New county website revealed By SHERRI ONORATI sonorati@covingtonleader.com Even though Tipton County is considered a rural community by many, it’s hard to tell that by looking at its new website. Launched on Jan. 4, the new site is a more colorful and functional site. “Our existing site was about five years old and County Executive Jeff Huffman came to me this past summer and asked if we could do a redesign,” explained G.I.S. Director and County Webmaster Shawn Anderson. “There was nothing wrong with our county website, it was pretty functional and had a lot of good information but he wanted a new site that had a fresh look to it and something that would draw the strengths of Tipton County – good schools, industrial prospects and the new scholarship STEP program – to the viewer and to tie it all together.” The county website is located at the same address, http://tiptonco.

contracted and designed by Memphis-based firm, Speak Creative, which designed the sites for the Memphis Zoo and The Rock and Soul Museum. Visitors to the site will find links for county departments, such as 911, the election commission, GIS; communities, elected officials. Also posted to the site are the agendas and minutes for county meetings. “We even have a “need to” page,” said Anderson. “It’s where someone can say I need to whatever... and it will help fill in the blanks.” Since it’s launch in early 2004, the number of visitors and pages visited has shown how important Tipton County’s website has become to residents. “Tipton County’s website averages 4,000 to 5,000 visits a month and about 30,000-35,000 pages a month, which is not bad for a small, rural comunity.” To visit the Tipton County website, go to http://tiptonco.com/.

water hoping to finish too soon. She said, “you can’t hurry nature.” Don’t forget after sprinkling, the clothes were twisted, wrapped in a towel, and set for a few minutes, so they will be ‘just right’. Some memories from the past of our Southern hard workin’ heritage.…GLORY!

During a pizza party, Covington Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Inc., along with patients, family members, local citizens and public officials, honored its 170 employees for their contributions to patient care as part of Nursing Home Caregiver Appreciation Day, Friday, Nov. 20. It is a day set aside to celebrate long-term care employees across the Volunteer State for their dedication and hard work in meeting the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual needs of patients. More than 37,600 men and women work for the elderly and disabled patients in Tennessee’s nursing homes. These men and women work together to ensure that each and every patient is receiving the highest quality of care possible. A team of registered nurses (RN), licensed practical nurses (LPN) and certified nursing assistants (CNA) are on staff at the nursing home, assisting the medical director in providing medical care. In the kitchen, a dietary

staff sees to it that prescribed diets are followed, and a variety of other professionals work hard to provide activities for patients assist with social services and make sure laundry is done and the facility grounds are maintained. “The employees at Covington Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Inc., along with every nursing home employee in the state, work hard to provide high-quality, 24-hour nursing care to patients,” said Scott Hurst, administrator of the facility. “We can’t thank these special men and women enough for all the hard work that they do to provide the best care possible to the elderly and disabled.” A p p r o x i m a t e l y, 32,700 elderly and disabled patients receive the round-the-clock nursing care they need in Tennessee nursing homes. In addition to medical care administered by a staff that includes professional caregivers, most facilities offer physical occupational and speech

therapy and include special programs and even separate wings for Alzheimer’s patients. Hurst explained that the services provided in nursing homes are an essential part of health care of America and growing more essential with the increasing elderly population. “When people visit Covington Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Inc., they can see just how important quality long-term care is for the patients and families who need it,” he said. “If community members would like to come for a visit or tour, we would love to have them as our guest.” Covington Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Inc., is a member for the Tennessee Health Care Association, a non-profit organization whose members include longterm care facilities located throughout the state.

one of Coot Baskin. She lived for many years with her son but was brought to Tipton County for burial Saturday Jan. 9. Remember Hop Gibbins in prayers as well. The men's Saturday morning prayer breakfast was called off Jan. 9 because they had a chile supper planned at Randolph Assembly. A large crowd attended. The pastor is Larry Rose. Emily Sweeney and husband Larry who live in Brownsville visited Emily's mother, Hazel mooneyham once a week. Larry is a minister. Joe and Suzanne Dillender of Virginia visited his sisters Becky and Anndee and husband David Glick of Bertrand, Mo. Joe's parents are Mike and Ruth Dillender. Mike and Ruth made fruit cakes every year and gave to family members for Christmas. They are delicious. Bill Partlow and his wife who live in Alaska are both on dialysis. One takes it at home the other goes to the hospital. Every since I read in Eddie Kellum's column that his mother, Nadine, had to do without water for days. I think how blessed we are and have to stop and say thank you Jesus for everything.

By Bernadine McAfee Sympathy to the love ones of Rivers Cullum Poole, Ernest W. Cayson, Viola M. Delaney, Margaret A. Gurley, James Boyd Liles, Shirley Ann Moore and Larry Wayne Corder. Also I'm thinking of the family of Joe D'Agle. He died recently. On the prayer list: Karla Morgan, Tommy Cousar, Nadine Kellum, Arvis Fletcher, Jada Cousar, Shawn Cousar, Clara McMillin, Patra Ballard, Cordie Morgan, Mary Gray, Dorothy Cook, Louise Bomar, Lois Conger, Bill Stimpson and Edna Downing, Mindy Tankersley, Megan Hobock and Gerlene Sloan. When I was born my aunt, Dolly Walker, said I kept her from planting peanuts. She and another aunt of mine, Leigh Standridge were present when I was born. Dr. Jack Witherington delivered me and his nurse was Mrs. Pullen. Ann Morris and daughter, Jackie have another quilt at Mrs. Ashford's in Covington. They can go at their own pace. Ann will take it home with her to hem. Carol Lumley visits by phone often with her brother, Jerry Neal Young in Texas. Sympathy to the loves

Brighton By Debe Simonton 268-0091 My Brighton friends, Today is a beautiful day. The temperatures are rising for now. In about eight weeks we could be looking at the spring weather arriving. Looking out at the ponds in the area, I'm glad that by Sunday they were mostly thawed. What a relief to have a heat wave. Sometimes I am greatful for our unpredictable midsouth weather. It definitely will keep you guessing about what to wear!! As most women this is the weather that drives us the craziest. Some mornings my bedroom looks like the day after Christmas sale at Macy's. Clothes everywhere, if it feels good then it doesn't look right. And forget planning the night before because by the time I get up the weather will be something completely different. Our prayer list includes Ms. Mary Sam White who has gone back to the hospital in St. Louis. Ms. Helen Goulder had bypass surgery last week. Mrs. Phyllis McIntosh has been ill from her chemotherapy. Ms. Dorothy Cordle had hip replacement surgery and is doing well. I love all four of these ladies and I do hope and pray they will be feeling much better very soon. Please give them a call, take them a treat, or send a card. I am sure they would greatly appreciate it. When your unable to get out time seems to pass you by and you miss events that you never even knew happened. The high school has basketball games scheduled for Jan. 22 at home against Northside and on the 25th the girls will play at Germantown. The Senior Oscar

Night is on Saturday, Jan. 23 at 6:30 in the gym. This is really a great event for the graduating class. Then on the 26th, the football banquet will be held in the cafeteria. The football boosters will be selling flats of strawberries beginning Jan. 19 until Feb. 28. They are selling the flats for $25. They will be delivered sometime after the first of March. You can contact me about any other information on my cell phone. The last event of the high school is the Womanless Beauty Review on Jan. 28 at 6:30 in the gym.The BHS faculty have something going on all the time for these students. The Alpha Book Club will meet this Thursday night at 7. The hostesses will be Ms. Will Whitmer, Ms. Susan Cavin, and Ms. Geraldine Rhodes. Ms Lydia Wright will be the speaker. The Brighton Park and Rec will meet Jan. 25 at 6. For those of you who weren't aware, Mike Stafford's home caught on fire last week. It appears that it was a total loss. We need to send prayers out for him. I am sure he had many sentimental as well as irreplaceable things that were destroyed in the fire. He was blessed not to have been injured due to the time and intensity of the fire. I remember his mother, Betty, so well. She was a customer of mine and we would have so much fun. She could find humor in any situation. And Mr. David, oh my, he would come over to the salon wearing that hat of his. I miss so many of the older Brighton residents. My sister, Beth, visited me right after Christmas. She lives in Atlanta with her husband, Paul, and son, Edward. Edward and my daughter Danielle are 5 weeks apart in age. Edward has cerebral

By Kathy Keiter Hello everyone. Hopefully everybody has had a good week! Well I did it, I took my tree down and everybody that comes in the office is no longer making fun of me. I’m so excited that there’s a chance we will be renting our apartments. Right now I have three families looking at all three of them. Please pray we can get them rented! We also have rooms in the retirement buildings available, so if you know of anyone that no longer needs to be cooking, cleaning and do their own laundry, maybe even needs some assistance with medication, we can do that too, so please give me a call at 476-7014. We are not a nursing home or an assisted living facility, but a retirement community. We would love to help take care of your loved one. Everyone out here is so special!! I love it because they all have their

We found out SUnday that we had lost Sam Dixon, head of UMCOR and that Clinton Rabb, head of Volunteers in Mission with UMCOR is critically injured and in a hospital. James Gulley, a staff member is alive even though we were first told that he and Mr. Rabb both were dead.

own special little things that they do or say and so many different personalities. It’s fun! I want to say thank you to a couple of really neat kids that have put in a lot of time here this week and last doing volunteer odd jobs. Thanks so much Annie and Doug, ya’ll are super great kids and I know you have worked so hard helping us get Boyd looking better! It really looks nice! Shampooing carpet and cleaning everything is not an easy job! So “Hip hip hooray for Annie and Doug”! Hey everybody, it’s that time of year to start thinking about our Spring Fest.

We’ll probably set that up in February, so I’ll keep you posted. I’ll be doing the cake

CHRYSLER • DODGE • JEEP

476-2683 Hello from Burlison. Okay, I told you I’d be quoting from Glenn Beck’s book “Arguing with Idiots” again. We all feel like we’re getting robbed every time we pull up to a gas pump especially when we turn on the news and hear that Exxon Mobile is yet again posting record breaking quarterly profits. Listen to what Glenn Beck has to say about that in his book. As of the writing of his book in 2009, Glenn says evil big oil comes in ranked at 56th place with a 9.5 percent profit margin which puts them behind the profits of mutual funds, publishers, long distance carriers, software, shipping, silver, copper, gold, drug manufacturers, regional banks, railroads, medical supplies, general entertainment, footwear, resorts and casinos and education services. We have a tendency to not think much about the others, because most of them hit our pocketbooks a little easier or because it is something we are choosing to do. So if profit margin makes an evil business, aren’t there 55 more evil than big oil? Also, Glenn states that “While giant corporations free fall, only to be saved by billion dollar tax parachutes, Big Oil is paying the government billions of dollars in taxes. Between 2003 and 2007, Big Oil’s profits increased by 89 percent while their taxes increased 170 percent. I guess my first question would be why our government is raising taxes on these corporations that are showing profits and giving the money to the ones that are failing while they have been giving their CEO’s multi-million dollar bonuses. And now for some hometown news. Our very own Tony Joe Connell, son of Randy and Teresa Connell of Burlison, took first place in job seeking skills in HOSA. Tony Joe will be going to state competition in Nashville to compete in April. In addition, Ms. Maddie Overall took second place in medical terminology. Maddie is the daughter of Ben and Melanie Overall of the Garland area. Maddie will also being going to state competetion in Nashville this April. Congratulations to both of these young people for an outstanding job. We hope that you both do well at state level. You make our communities proud. Thanks for reading and if you have any information for future articles you can reach me at 901-476-2683 or email me at kellumeddie@yahoo.com. Until next time, have a great week. Eddie Kellum

action again this year so be thinking if you would like to make a cake to donate to Dunlap, that would be really nice! If you think you can, please go ahead and give me a call and let me know and I’ll write your name and number down and will call you a couple days ahead so you won’t have to remember. My number is 4767014. Thank you so much for helping! Also Ms. Jean Smith will be donating a handmade quilt for us to sell $1 chances to win it, so if you can sell some tickets for me that would be great too! And hopefully Ms. Patsy Fee can come and do the fried apple pies again, oh boy, I can’t wait! I always think, I’ll wait and see if there’s any leftover and then I’ll eat one, then it’s too late. So maybe this year I’ll get one! Like I said, I’ll keep you posted on the date! Until next week, my prayer for all of you is to have a wonderful week and don’t forget to give somebody a hug this week. They may even need two! God bless all of you!

palsy and is always a delight to have around. We visited Martin, where we grew up and where most of my Mother's family is from. We also got to have an adventure, so to speak. We had past the home of my grandparents where my mother was born and lived until they built another home in town when she was a teenager. Through all the years we past this home out on the Fulton Hwy and just looked at it but never went inside. Well Beth and I decided to stop. It had a for sale sign in the front yard but obviously had not been lived in for some while. I walked around back and to my surprise it was open. I ran and got my sister out of the van and we went through this house visioning where my Mimi and Pop did this or that. And then we decided that Mothers room must have been upstairs because the steps were so narrow. It was like going back in time. I did call the realtors to find out how much they wanted and they informed me that they were going to tear it down. It had been zoned commercial. Now Beth and I want to go and take pictures and see if they will let us have some of the wood that comes from the house. Don't put off something that means so much to you. I had never seen the inside of that house and I am 50 plus a couple of years. I am almost ashamed at myself because it has been such a conversation piece for us. This ends this week's notes. I want to tell my Daddy how much I love him. I also want to let his new wife Norma know that I love her, too. And this week's thanks to good friends Kim Copeland, Susan White, Janine Tankersly, Barbara David, William and Terri Lea. Love ya bunches, Debe

Dr. Martin Luther King last week, let us all continue his dream by keeping it alive. This is it for this time, remember this — “Stick up always for what you believe in. But always have the true facts about what you’re sticking up for.” Until next time.

DarSay Burton 476-1414 Greetings. Rain, rain. It came and it went away. Once again, God bless those weather forecasters. Of course they have a job to do, and they do, do it. For us, most times we laugh and we say to ourselves “boy, did they ever miss that prediction.” Still in all, we sit glued to our televisions. We watch as we listen to their predicaments, regarding our weather. And time and time again, sometimes they miss. But, there are those times when yes, “they hit that nail right on the head.” By the way, last weekends rain, wasn’t too bad. Now for the news. Last Sunday morning at Bright Hill the pastor Rev. S P. Cole and the church family honored it’s oldest female member, “Mama

“Mama Jennie” and may you be blessed with many, many more wonderful birthdays. LaRue Albritton and Mildred Sherrill prepared a lovely dinner in LaRue’s home last Sunday.

We are still in prayer for Bessie Cobbs, Doris King, Jeffery Mosley Sr., Posie Reed, Mildred Sherrill and family, Joseph

Students practicing before the actual performance of A Christmas Portrait

A Christmas portrait held at Austin Peay By EMMA KATE WADE Special to The Leader This year the AES Patriot Chorus, under the direction of Mrs. Kim Colborn, kicked off this wonderful Christmas season with a spectacular production called, “A Christmas Portrait.” The chorus opened with the well-known Christmas classic, “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” The cast was dressed in colorful hats and scarves setting the tone for the wonderful things to come. Grandpa, portrayed by Cody Gough and Grandma, portrayed by Emma Kate Wade were sitting together looking at their old photo album, reminiscing about Christmas days of long ago. A.J. Boyd and Jazmine Thompson sang the lovely song, “An Old Fashion Christmas,” together as they stood by the beautifully decorated Christmas trees. As Jazmine and AJ sang their wonderful duet, the chorus was busy preparing to go on a sleigh ride through the snow. The sleigh ride was complete with its sleigh bells and the smartest team of horses around. Grandpa and Grandma remembered their very first Christmas together, also the night they fell in love. Grandma and Grandpa sang, “It Must Have Been the Mistletoe.” As Grandpa helped Grandma up, they waltzed together as the chorus sang, “The Christmas Waltz.” The chorus then broke out in to the joyful song, “Merry Christmas Polka.” The Fox Hole - In this scene, three soldiers are sitting in a fox hole wishing they could be home for Christmas. Soldier One (Cody Gough), Soldier Two (Hayden Powell), and Soldier Three (Braxton Middlebrooks) all just wanted to go home and be with their families on Christmas. As the three soldiers were dreaming of home, Cody Gough sang, “I’ll be Home for Christmas.” As the chorus got their scarves, hats, and shopping bags together, they sang, “Silver Bells” while decorating and shopping. A North Polaroid - Malik Mathews (the Head Elf) answered the door as photographer, Cody Gough came pounding on the door at the North Pole. “Yes, may I help you?” asked the elf. The photographer wanted to take a family photo of the whole North Pole family which consisted of EV-

ERYBODY! “There’s no time for that Mr!” declares the elf. “It’s just impossible!” As the chorus got their elf hats on they came out one at a time singing, “Must be Santa.” “OK, I’ll get him,” says the elf. At this time, Santa made his grand entrance as the elves sang, “Mister Santa.” As Santa explains to the photographer, “I want a picture of my whole family and that includes everyone,” the photographer paces in disbelief. Rudolph steps up and states, “Rudolph’s the name, lighting my game” all of the chorus joins Santa in singing a twisted version of “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.” Suzy Snowflake (Samantha Sloan) joins the cast as she terrifies all coming from her celebrity trailer. As she approached Santa, the elves began to sing, “Suzy Snowflake.” As she leaves the room, all of the elves asked Santa if they too could be in the picture. The photographer then asks, “Well, who are you?” They emphatically respond with, “who are we, he wants to know, who are we?” They began to sing, “We are Santa’s Elves.” An unexpected guest showed up. He was a jolly, happy soul, with a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal. He danced, sang, and cracked jokes. All squealed in delight to see Frosty that night! By now, the photographer was pretty mad! He just wanted to take the picture and get out of there! As the elves fixed their hats and made themselves look good, Cody Gough sang a mixed up version of “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas.” Just as he was about to take the picture, the head elf remembered they had forgotten to plug in the tree. As someone ran back and plugged in the tree, all of the elves sang, “Rockin around the Christmas Tree.” At the end of the song, the photographer finally got his photo. As everyone sat down on the stage the chorus sang a beautiful medley of songs. “There’s no Place Like Home for the Holidays,” and “The Christmas Song.” As the chorus finished up the musical, they sang the “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” Mrs. Kim and the chorus thanked everyone for coming. Our message to you from the AES Patriot Chorus is to have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We would also like to say that we hope each and everyone of you made a special Christmas Portrait memory with your family.

The annual Tipton County spelling bee was held on Thursday, Jan. 14 at Munford Middle School. In front of anxious parents, teachers and friends, 20 students representing the county’s 10 middle and elementary schools, sat fidgeting in their chairs. Some studied the rules intently while others nervously tapped their name cards against their fingers waiting for the bee to begin. Judging this year’s event were Covington Integrated Arts Academy assistant principal Barbara Teague, Munford Elementary School assistant principal Brooke Shipley and Munford Middle School Title 1 program coordinator Debra Marshall. The spelling bee is hosted every year at MMS and pits the best two fourth- through eighth-grade spellers from each school against one another. Representing the schools were: Atoka Elementary Frank Hughes and Joshua McFarland Austin Peay Elementary Trey Carrico and Garrian Dickson Brighton Elementary Jasmine Crabb and Holly Stewart Covington Integrated Arts Academy Briona Lane and Johnathan Smith Crestview Elementary Khylee Dowell and Austin Mason Drummonds Elementary Logan Courtney and Ali Kirk Munford Elementary Danny Roach and Logan Fristensky Brighton Middle Jaylan Sears and Caitlan Kellum Crestview Middle Melvin Blanchard and Japeth Hayman Munford Middle Haley Hughes and Cecily Gable With spelling bee director, MMS assistant principal Marvin Rayner pronouncing the words, young Garrian took his time and tried really hard but in the first round, he forgot to add the second “e” to coffee and became the first speller to be eliminated. The students were asked to spell such words as urgent, exact and celebration. Before the round was completed, a second student was eliminated, this time Drummond Elementary’s Logan Courtney. Round two saw the elimination of four students: Briona, Khylee, Trey and Holly, after being asked to spell words such as semifinal, continent, estimate and octopus. Rounds three and four had only one student each eliminated. Jasmine Cobb showed great courage when she stumbled on her word strengthen during round three and kept her head high as she had to take a seat at the back of the remaining spellers. Spellers were asked to spell tolerant, complementary and punc-

Munford Elementary fifth-grader Logan Fristensky won the Tipton County annual spelling bee and Munford Middle seventh-grader Cecily Gable was the runner-up. They are pictured with Spelling Bee director, Munford Middle School assistant principal Marvin Rayner. Logan will compete in the MidSouth Spelling Bee competition on March 6 at the Al Chymia Shrine Temple in Memphis. tuation in round four where Johnathan realized his attempt at winning the bee for his school had come to an end. As the rounds progressed, the words asked to be spelled got harder and harder and it showed as more students were eliminated. Round five saw Austin, Haley and Japeth knocked out of competition by difficult words like apology, denominator and velocity. Round six eliminated Ali and Melvin with affiliation, scholarship, agricultural and monopolize. Four other young, confident, hopefuls: Joshua, Frank, Danny and Caitlin, saw their dreams at winning come to an end during round seven. The words that stumped them – quarantine, hysterical, subterranean and miraculous. As the words got tougher, the remaining three students began asking for Rayner to repeat the words and for the definitions of the words being asked to spell. Round eight’s words were indelible, supplement and patience. Round nine’s were accomplice, rutabaga and fallacy, which turned out to be the downfall of Jaylan Sears. And then there were two – MMS seventh-grader Cecily Gable and MES fifthgrader Logan Fristensky. With only two spellers left, the rules of the spelling bee changed. In order to win, the student who spelled his or her word correctly, would have to spell an additional word correctly also and that’s when the competition started to really get intense. The next seven rounds went back and fourth. Cecily was the first to misspell her word, infatuation. Logan spelled his word, palatable correctly but misspelled the potential winning word ineffable. For the next five rounds, neither student spelled their given words – psychoanalysis, labyrinth, enfranchise, adjudicate, omni-

scient, cajolery, analgesia, and conundrum, correctly. You could tell by the looks of disbelief on their faces, they couldn’t believe they had drawn such tough words. During round 16, Cecily misspelled her word, vengeance, giving a Logan another shot for the win. He quickly and correctly spelled his word, analyze, which meant if he could spell the next word correctly he would win the county competition. When Rayner announced the word he would have to spell to win, photosynthesis, Logan smiled really big and confidently and correctly spelled it. Logan will represent Tipton County during MidSouth Spelling Bee, sponsored by The Commercial Appeal, on Saturday, March 6 at the Al Chymia Shrine Temple at 9 a.m.

did it was before the customers came in. I didn’t want to see anyone. Outside of family, this was something we did together.” Jones understands how hard her decision is on her customers and her employees, but said everyone has been extremely supportive and understanding. “Over the years we have made such great friends with this business,” she said. “I have six staff members and I hate it so bad for them, but they understand. Dee Mullins told me the other day, ‘Ms. Sue, we knew that when Mr. George died it was just a matter of time.’ I’ve come a long way this year. My church, my friends and my family. I have a tremendous support system here.” One of Jones’ strongest support pillars has been her daughter-in-law, Denise Jones. “My children have all been really supportive ever since their dad died. My son’s wife, Denise, was a mortgage specialist and she left her job and came here and has been running it since George died. She had no real experi-

ence in retail, but she’s the kind that once you meet her you feel you have know her forever and she has done beautifully. She drives every day from Jackson and she has given so much.” Jones hasn’t set a date for the doors to close yet but said it will depend on the business liquidation. Main Street Antiques and Tea Room will be holding a 20-50 percent reduction sale from Jan. 18 until they close. “The people of Tipton County and all over have been incredibly special and supportive of me. “I have no regrets', swore Jones. “It’s been a great time but it’s just all change. He was my best friend and my soulmate. The love of my life and my business partner. Then my brother died after a brief illness and this October, my other brother died. It has all just really given me a different perspective on what’s important. And if I don’t just love this anymore, and I don’t, then I just need to move on. George always told me if you’re going to do it, just do it and don’t ever look back. I’m doing it.”

The Best Time Of Year to Sell a Home Home owners should buck the conventional wisdom about selling in the spring. Late spring and summer are usually thought of as the best times to put a home on the market because it is easier for families to move around the schooling schedule. But sellers should market their homes earlier this year. This year an $8,000 credit for buyers, who haven’t purchased a home in the past 3 years, requires buyers to close on a home by April 30, 2010. This will force buyers to speed up their decisions. Additionally, home owners who have lived in their home for a minimum of 4 years can receive a $6,500 credit if they buy by April 30, 2010. The best time to get your house on the market will be FebruPam Chandler ary or early March, and maybe even earlier if you want to avoid Remax Premier competition.

Randolph By Tula Starr Hello Dear Readers: Jean Jordan, my neighbor who lives down the street from us called and wanted to know what was going on..... since she had not seen my writings in several week. Thanks Jean. The old man and old woman have been in a big mess. Have you ever had one of your adult children come home to live with you while searching for a job? Well, our youngest son, who use to live in Virginia has been with us since November. We love all our children and are happy to have them with us anytime. But, after having an empty nest for 30 years, it does take some adjusting. Our son now has a job and went to work yesterday. In the mean time we have been searching for a place for him to live. We found a place in Mississippi. Tunica is where he found a job. We found a place for him on Tunica Lake. It is a fishing village and takes only 15 minutes for him to be at work. This will be our second home. The fishing vil-

lage is not Germantown, it is a place to live and it is on the waterfront of the lake. We can fish from the front yard. (I guess the old man and old woman might have to take up fishing) We use to like to fish when we were young. But that was many year ago. But, the lake is beautiful. I love it so. I guess because it reminds me/us of our place at Randolph and looking at the mighty Mississippi River. I have just realized the other day what I miss most about Randolph is the "sunsets." Most every day at Randolph, we would stop whatever we were doing and look at the magnificent sunsets! Well, Tunica Lake cut-off have the same sunsets!!! They are made by God - and he made them for me/us to enjoy and give thanks to God! Two men, a father and son lived in this home and had two big dogs that lived there too. Needless to say, we had a hard time cleaning it up. We had the carpet cleaned. The carpet man cleaned all the rooms except one bedroom in 45 minutes. Then in the dogs bedroom it took him 45 minutes to clean it up.

Mt. Carmel/Clopton By Elaine Watkins 476-7093 It’s a mild Monday night. The weather is in the high 50’s this week with rain tomorrow night, Wednesday and Thursday. Filling up the water table! I’m about over my sinus mess and pink eye. By the time it was better, it had gotten to my other eye. I finally felt like looking at the computer screen Friday and saw that it was bacterial, not viral, and that was why the drops were working so slowly. I had the doctor call in some antibiotic drops and sinus meds and I feel much better today. Actually got out of the house yesterday and went to church! It’s not like me to stay in the house for a whole week. And I couldn’t even pass the time reading all the books I got for Christmas! We got the French doors hung in the new closet today and just have to put sheetrock up the walls and across the ceiling where we tore the wall out. Electrical work also to go. It’s slow going with just James and me doing the work but we’re doing it! Can’t wait till it’s time to paint. Jim Edmonds stopped by for a few minutes tonight while I was heating up left-over vegetable soup and cornbread.

We tried to get him to stay and eat but he talked a little while and said he had to get home. “Pup” tried to go with him! We still haven’t named her; still hoping for a buyer. I have a conservation district winter meeting in Jackson tomorrow. Bonnie Holloway and I always ride together. It will be good to leave town for a few hours. Friday I get a haircut and will feel like a new woman! Looking forward to Ladies Retreat in Paris so much. We always have a great weekend and look forward to it from one year to the next. We usually have them in the fall so this will be different. The cabins have fireplaces; hope it’s cold! It’s less than two weeks away now - the 29th. The birthday party at Covington Care will be on Saturday at 2 p.m. The ACTS Devotional will be on the 24th and the teens will go to Bison Daze at Harding University in Searcy on the weekend of the 28th. Sympathy is extend-

It has been awful. And needless to say we had to pay extra for that room. The yard was really a big mess. They never got rid of anything. Four big old car tires and one giant tractor tire was just laying in the yard. What a mess. This old woman got out in the misty rain and raked and moved all the junk in a big pile. Since, the old man and old woman have been married for 57 years, we have enough junky furniture to furnish this home. Also, we have found so much good stuff at the Salvation Army Store. Sometimes they will mark stuff 50 percent off if it has been there over 30 days. They also have brand new mattresses and box springs. We have had a good time shopping for our Tunica home. We have been able to buy sheets, towels, blankets, and I found a king size quilt (hand quilted) for $25. It is so pretty. I love mirrors and we have found three pretty ones at SA store. While we were in Tunica we discovered the Aquatic Center (fitness center). It is a fabulous place. I have never seen a place so wonderful. They have every-

thing there. And the best part is that it is free for people over 62. Needless to say we joined. It only cost $90 a year for our son. They have an Olympic swimming pool (heated) inside. mAlso, a great pool for small children. We were so impressed. They have an inside walking track (eight laps is one mile). Also, an outside track. We had to get a note from our Dr. saying it was okay for us to work out. We don't plan to do anything but walk and swim. We are so excited at this and this is only 15 minutes from our second home. We had a wonderful Christmas. All of our family was here. There were 15 of us. We are too old to cook and clean up, so we had Top's BBQ for everyone. No one went away hungry. We did have homemade desserts. I made my special peach cobbler and served it with ice cream One daughter-inlaw brought our favorite German chocolate cake. I have recently been cooking what is called "chocolate cobbler." It is so good!! If anyone would like the recipe I will share it next week. Call me if you are interested 475-

ed to Sherri Kidd in the death of her uncle, Ronnie Scott. The McKee family has my prayers in the death of Louise McKee and the Fields family has my sympathy in the death of Michael. Happy birthday this week goes to Reese Cartwright on January 11th, to Corey Pinner on the 13th, to Lillie Brammer on the 14th, to Garrett Johnson and Laura Craft on the 15th, to Jimmy Weir on the 17th, to Joyce Scott on the 19th, to Landon Bringle on the 21st and to Tracy Speight on the 23rd! Happy anniversary to Kenneth and Brenda Mason on January 13th! The Langston twins, Aerik and Kali, were at church with their parents, Jenni and Rick, and big sister, Percaya, yesterday. Halellujia! The whole family was well at the same time; it’s been a while! On our prayer list are Kenneth Mason, Gaynell Clay, Bill Simpson, Clara Phelps, D. B. McKee, Dee Fletcher, Herbert Rose and so many more. Also our servicemen and women. Marion Davis sent me this from the Clopton

United Methodist Church: “The group ‘Victory Sounds’ will perform Saturday, Jan. 23 at 6 p.m. and everyone is invited.” That church is located at 5285 Brighton-Clopton Road. This week’s Farmers Almanac Quote: “Man is man because he is free to operate within the framework of his destiny. Martin Luther King Jr., 1929 - 1968” Well said. Enjoy the March-like weather we’re having in January. It won’t last long! Until next week . . . Elaine

Individual Name: Verble A. Billings

9884. (I think it is an old recipe you make it from scratch ---but I make it with chocolate cake mix.) The following was given to me by Bettie Gufstason at our Frayser Height Methodist Church Sunday school class party on New Year's Eve, at James and Brenda Anderson's home in Germantown. James cooked prime rib for 22 people. The old man and old woman baked 22 potatoes. Everyone brought food. What a good time we had. We have been doing this for the past 15 years. WHISPERS The man whispered, "God, speak to me" And a meadowlark sang. But the man did not hear. So the man yelled, "God, speak to me" And the thunder rolled across the sky. But the man did not listen. The man looked around and said "God let me see you."

And a star shined brightly. But the man did not see. And, the man shouted, "God show me a miracle." And a life was born. But the man did not notice. So, the man cried out in despair, "Touch me God and let me know you are here." Where upon, God reached down and touched the man. But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

Chargers win fifth straight at Obion By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader Fresh off a big, emotional win at Ripley last Friday, and a long holiday weekend, Charger head coach Dion Real had to find a way to keep his team focused against one of the lesser accomplished teams in District

13 AA. He did it by pressing the entire game and it worked as CHS (12-7, 8-2) came out of Troy with a 98-80 win over the Obion County Rebels (514, 1-9). The Charger press was more than effective forcing 24 Rebel turnovers, nine in the first period, as CHS raced out to a 2813 lead. Covington had

more bodies than Obion and Coach Real was not afraid to use them as he substituted freely sometimes five at a time keeping as many fresh legs on the court as possible. With the press, there are shooters open and the Rebels took advantage with some deft outside work as they knocked down 12 from beyond

the three point arc in the game. CHS hot on seven long balls of their own in the contest. CHS had a 20-point bulge at the break and seemed on the way to a blow out but the rebels would have none of it. They put on a run of their own and cut the Charger lead to 13 with 5:23 remaining before seven

straight points by Lester Gude and Carl McKenzie shut the door on their chances. McKenzie again was the game’s leading scorer with 28 points. Lester Gude and James McClain each added 19 for CHS. Tyler Barber led Obion Central in scoring with 26 points. The Chargers had a season low 10 turnovers and

shot 72 percent (13/18) from the free throw line. The Rebels were at 73 percent from the stripe 14/19. Covington will host the Milan Bulldogs on Friday night and then the Haywood Tomcats on Tuesday, Jan. 26 in two crucial District 13 AA contests. Both games will tip-off at approximately 7:30 p.m.

Rebels pick up league win over Rossville By JEFF IRELAND Sports@covingtonleader.com

The result was a much-needed 62-45 win, which moved to the Rebels to 2-3 in league play and 5-5 overall. Bran scored 18 points and Sansom chipped in with 15 as the Rebels overcame an early deficit to earn the win. TRA trailed 11-5 after one quarter before winning the second and third

quarters by a combined score of 31-19. TRA won the fourth period 26-15 to pull away. Troy Ambeau led Rossville with 25 points and Austin White added 16. The Rebels were not as fortunate Friday night in Jackson when USJ handed the Rebels an 86-59 district loss. USJ jumped out to a 46-22 halftime lead and never looked back en route to the win. J.T. Moody led TRA with 15 points and Bran added 11. John Ross Glover and Austin Martindale led the Bruins with 16 points each. In girls’ action the Lady Rebels dropped

league games to Rossville and USJ and slipped to 0-10 (0-5 DIIA-West). Juliann McCommon scored eight points in the 54-27 loss to Rossville. Courtney Ankebrant and Caitie Montague each added seven points. Heather Gaither led Rossville with 18. Halie Miller sparked USJ’s 70-13 win over TRA with a game-high 12 points. Montague led TRA with 11. The Rebels and Lady Rebels will be back in action today at home against SBEC and Friday at Southaven.

The Munford Lady Cougars have been pretty successful the last week, picking up wins at Southaven on Tuesday and at home against FCA on Friday. Munford (6-11) jumped out to an early lead on Southaven, surging ahead 34-26 at the half. The Lady Chargers, led by ex-Munford boys coach David Baldwin, cut the lead to four in the fourth quarter, but Munford finished strong and prevailed 59-50. Crystal Williams led the way for Munford with 20 points and Kelsey Briggs added 17. Quanesha Richardson also had a solid game with 12 points. Briana Williams led Southaven (8-6) with 14 points. Munford took care of FCA early, holding the visitors to just two first quarter points and building a 35-16 lead through three quarters. Munford won 50-23. Briggs and Richardson led Munford with 13 points each. On Saturday the Lady Cougars

dropped a league game to Hardin County, 62-56, dropping their District 13-AAA mark to 0-4. Munford closed the gap to single digits in the fourth quarter but could not come all the way back after falling behind 47-33 through three quarters. Richardson led Munford with 18 points and Briggs added 17. In boys action, Munford picked up its first district win of the season with a 47-45 win over Hardin County. Munford trailed 35-33 heading into the fourth quarter before rallying for the win. Senior point guard Madison Futtrell had a huge game for the Cougars, pouring in a game-high 26 points. Nobody else had more than six for the Cougars, which led 20-17 at the half. FCA got the best of Munford on Friday, overcoming a five-point halftime deficit to pull out a 53-48 win. Munford led 24-19 at the half before FCA went on a 22-7 run in the third quarter to get back in the game. Futtrell and Tyler Woods led Munford with 13 points each. Both Munford teams return to action Friday at Dyer County and Saturday at home against Bartlett.

Obion downs Lady Chargers By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader The Lady Chargers managed to hold their own for one period with their top scorer on the bench in foul trouble but two periods against the fourth ranked team in Class AA Tennessee girl’s basketball was too tall an order. Trailing 18-9 after the first quarter with Dominique Ross saddled with three fouls and no points, CHS could only watch in horror as the Obion County Lady Rebels had

their way in the second frame outscoring Danya Howse’s team 20-4 to run away and hide, 71-47, in this District 13 AA matchup at Troy on Tuesday night. To their credit, the Lady Chargers battled to the end and played the formidable Lady Rebels to a draw in the second half, even shaving a point off the halftime bulge. CHS was not pummeled in the way that they were in the previous game at CHS in early December. Ross returned to the floor in the second half to score

a team high 14 for CHS ((5-14, 3-7). University of Texas signee Chassidy Fussell had a game high 31 for Obion Central (183, 9-1). In a reverse of the norm, the Lady Chargers went to the foul line only six times in the game making two while Obion was at the stripe 17 times. They made 15 of their attempts. CHS returns to the home court tomorrow night to take on the Lady Bulldogs from Milan. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. Haywood comes calling on Tuesday, Jan. 26.

Lady Chargers struggle, win at Ripley By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader Take every win you can get. Warm up the bus. Go home. But in a word, this one was ugly. The Covington Lady Chargers (5-13, 3-6) made it a season sweep of the Ripley Lady Tigers (1-13,

0-9) last Friday by a score of 61-50 but not without a fight. Somehow overcoming three of 14 shooting from the floor and five of 10 shooting from the free throw line in the first quarter, CHS found itself only down by three after the initial frame. They scored 20 in the second period to take a one point lead into

the half at 31-30, primarily on the strength of senior forward Dominique Ross’ 22 points. She finished with a team and game high 31. Shalunda Barbee paced the Lady Tigers with 21 points. The second half was much as the first as neither CHS nor Ripley could find the basket from outside or

Chargers take down Ripley By STEVE HOLT Special to The Leader CHS got back in the District 13 AA title race with a solid 78-72 win over the 9th ranked Ripley Tigers last Friday night. The Chargers (11-7, 7-2) hit the floor with the intent of avenging 62-47 home defeat on Dec. 1 to the Tigers (13-3, 8-1) and they did so in style. Starting from a 2-2 tie, CHS went on a 14-0 run to amass a 16-2 lead in the first period. A stunned Tiger crowd rallied their team to an 8-0 run that was stopped by a Carl McKenzie bucket at the buzzer that found CHS leading 18-10 after one. CHS’ inability to attain consistency at the free throw stripe coupled with the Tigers better shooting allowed Ripley to pull to within seven, 35-28, by half-time. The Chargers also had foul problems. Dexter Moore was tagged with three fouls in two minutes in the first period when the Chargers saw the Tigers get in the bonus just five minutes into the quarter. By halftime, senior point guard, Bernard Hurd had

three fouls and was limited in what he could do as well. In the second half, the Tigers made a spurt defensively and offensively outscoring CHS 24-18 in the third period. They took their only lead of the game at 52-51 with :20 left in the period but again had it erased on a McKenzie basket. They would not see the lead again. A 25-20 fourth period led by Carl McKenzie’s 11 points in the period; single three point field goals by Cortez Foster and Demetres Clabon and 11/13 team free throw shooting sealed the win. The Tigers cut the lead to two on several occasions but Lester Gude’s 1+1 with :54.4 on the clock pushed the lead to five at 74-69 and sent the Tiger faithful to the exits in droves. CHS was stymied from the outside most of the night managing only four 3-point field goals. There were four virtuoso performances in the game. First the Charger defense handled Tiger guard, Quentin Lee, with aplomb. After scoring 13 in the first half he was held to two in

the second and was visibly frustrated by the CHS double teams. The Charger “D” also went at forward Rocco Winbush; got him in foul trouble and kept him on the bench for much of the game. Secondly, Lester Gude, essentially shut down from beyond the arc, uncharacteristically hit boards to get almost all of his 24 points. Third, Carl McKenzie was not to be denied. His 35 points led all scorers but it was his presence under fire handling the ball under a withering press with others in foul trouble that made the difference. He has scored 30+ in three of his last four games and is averaging 28 points over that stretch. Finally, Charger head coach Dion Real has to be cited for his game plan and the execution of it. His players took the Tigers out of their comfort zone. Quentin Lee is one of the quickest and most savvy guards around. Real devised a plan to negate him. He convinced his players it would work. It did and they came away with a big road win.

ATTENTION!

right under it. The Lady Chargers pushed the lead to five after three periods at 44-39 primarily on the strength of Iesha Carruthers strong rebounding and seven points in the period. CHS was able to widen the gap to the final margin in the fourth as free throws that had not been falling before finally began to settle in the nest with a little more

regularity. For the game, the Lady Chargers committed 18 turnovers to 15 for the Lady Tigers. CHS continues to go to the free throw line many more times than their opponents but they do not capitalize. They had 38 attempts to Ripley’s nine but only made 21 for 55 percent.

The Lady Tigers made six for 67 percent shooting. It is a puzzlement that needs to be solved.
