As of Wednesday, Eggers had yet to have accepted a new position, but said he was “pursuing other opportunities” and planned to remain in education. The Maryville R-II Board of Education met Tuesday night, voting to accept the resignation of high-school Principal Jason Eggers and begin implementation of a new “talented and gifted” program for students in grades one through eight. Eggers, 39, is completing his seventh year as the top MHS administrator. He holds three degrees from Northwest Missouri State University and began his education career as a vocal music teacher in Mound City, where he also later served as principal. He said Monday he has yet to accept a new position but plans to stay in education and has been interviewing with other districts. “I just felt I needed to challenge myself and look for new things,” Eggers said Wednesday. “It’s a time in my life when I need to pursue other options.” During tenure as principal, MHS was awarded a 2012 Gold Star award for student achievement from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. That same year the school was nominated as a Blue Ribbon School, a similar distinction bestowed by the U.S. Department of Education. Also in 2012, the high school was named an Exemplary School in conjunction with the Professional Learning Communities initiative administered by DESE. “It’s been great,” Eggers said of his time in Maryville. “I’ve been able to surround myself with a great staff that worked hard and that has believed in the Professional Learning Communities process.” Eggers said he takes pride in the accomplishments of MHS students, both academically and through championship-caliber extracurricular achievements in areas ranging from athletics to speech and debate. “It’s been a lot of fun to See R-II, Page 5 Meals on Wheels TONY BROWN/DAILY FORUM Senior Center cook Pam Miller checks through parcels containing bread, milk, fruit, cake and ice cream as Sheriff Darren White, left, and Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice look on prior to delivering carloads of hot meals and trimmings to local residents. Officials hit the road for ‘meals on wheels’ By TONY BROWN News editor Happy to help TONY BROWN/DAILY FORUM Wednesday was a big day at the Nodaway County Senior Center as patrons spent part of their lunchtime gathering marking anniversaries and birthdays, and local officials loaded cartons of hot food into waiting vehicles in order to deliver “meal on wheels.” Now in its 25th year of operation on East First Street, the center provides year ’round nutritional assistance to between 150 and 180 elderly and handicapped people five days a week. And Wednesday was Mayors on Wheels Day, when representatives of both Nodaway County and the city of Maryville traditionally volunteer a couple of hours at midday to deliver about 50 meals along routes inside the city limits. Mayor Jim Fall was sidelined due to illness, but Councilman Glenn Jonagan signed up to take his place. Others participating included Sheriff Darren White and Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice. Rice and White stood at a counter in the rear of the Senior Center pantry going over their delivery lists as Katie Wright, the cen- ter’s high-energy, perpetual motion head chef added the finishing touches to food parcels that included fried chicken boxes donated by KFC. Once every three months, the local franchise donates enough two-piece dinners, complete with mashed potatoes and coleslaw, to serve all of the “meals on wheels” patrons in the county, between 70 and 90 individuals. On Wednesday, the parcels were augmented by packages containing fruit, cake, ice cream, bread and milk provided by the center. Those showing up to eat in the center’s large, light-filled dining area, which also features an exercise machine and a couple of pool tables, enjoyed a similar meal consisting of oven-fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and dessert. As he readied to run his routes, Rice said that the nutritional assistance offered by the center is crucial in a county whose demographics include a large number of lowerincome elderly people. “The center is so important for the way it provides a nutritious, hardy meal,” saidRice, See Officials, Page 5 Cook Cathy Farmer prepares food for the noonday meal Wednesday in the large kitchen of the Nodaway County Senior Center.

STATE NEWS Bill would raise pregnancy center cap JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri could award additional tax credits for donations to pregnancy resource centers under legislation passed by the Missouri House. The bill that is pending in the Senate would raise the current annual tax credit cap by $500,000, bringing the total amount up to $2.5 million per year. People can currently receive a tax credit worth half of their donation to 57 pregnancy resource centers located throughout the state. Missouri is expected to waive $1.5 million in revenue during the current budget year as a result of the credit. The House passed the bill on a 113-36 vote before lawmakers recessed for this week’s break. Missouri has not hit the current $2 million cap on the tax credit during the past three budget years.

Teen charged with leaving infant’s body ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis teenager has been charged with abandoning a corpse after police say she gave birth to a baby and left it in a trash bin. Paramedics found the baby dead on Thanksgiving morning. Court documents indicate the girl was dead at the time of delivery earlier that morning. Eighteen-year-old Lucretia Jordan-Smith was charged Tuesday and could face up to four years in prison if convicted. Bond was set at $10,000. Paramedics found the baby wrapped in two plastic grocery bags and a larger trash bag in the bin behind Jordan-Smith’s apartment. Police say Jordan-Smith admitted that she wrapped the baby in the bags and put her in the trash bin. Town prohibits teen, trucker texting PERRYVILLE, Mo. (AP) — A Perry County town has passed a local law that bans texting by teen drivers and truckers. The Perryville Board of Aldermen voted unanimously Tuesday to ban the use of cellphones by drivers age 21 and younger and commercial drivers to send, read or write electronic messages. The ordinance also makes it illegal for anyone, regardless of age, to use a hand-held mobile phone while driving a commercial vehicle. JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Some Missouri school districts are getting hit harder financially than others as a result of a state funding shortfall that has climbed to well over $600 million, according to a report released Wednesday. An analysis by the nonprofit Missouri Budget Project found that the nearly $3.1 billion in basic state aid being provided this year to public school districts is about $656 million short of what’s called for under a 2005 law that re-wrote Missouri’s school funding formula. The shortfall amounts to about $700 per student on a statewide basis, the report said. But those figures vary widely by district, with several rural Missouri school systems getting shortchanged by more than $970 per student and several Rural Missouri schools bear brunt of funding formula gap suburban St. Louis districts receiving less than $40 per student below their targeted amounts. “By underfunding and failing to invest in quality education, we are truly failing our children,” said Amy Blouin, executive director of the Missouri Budget Project, a St. Louis-based group that analyzes fiscal issues with an emphasis on how they affect low-income residents. “We’re undermining our state’s economic development and our future.” Missouri’s school funding law sets a per-student spending target that is intended to ensure each district has adequate funding based on a combination of state and local revenues. But state funding has fallen below the called-for amounts each year since 2010, when state revenues dropped as a result of a recession. The funding gap has grown to the point that schools now are receiving about 17 percent less than they are supposed to get under state law. The report by the Missouri Budget Project concludes that “the vast majority of school districts throughout Missouri have been significantly hurt by Missouri’s inability to fully fund the state’s education funding formula.” Some school districts have eliminated special reading teachers, classroom aides and counselors, increased class sizes and reduced the number of courses offered, said Roger Kurtz, executive director of the Missouri Association of School Administrators. Of the state’s 520 school districts, the funding shortfall equals at least $800 per student in 304 of those school systems and at least $900 per student in 72 districts, according to the report. The largest gap of $978 per student is at the Potosi School District in Washington County in rural eastern Missouri. Of the 10 districts with the largest per-pupil funding shortfalls, three are in Washington County and five are in rural Pulaski County in southcentral Missouri. The report said the shortfalls tend to be worse in rural schools, which often rely more heavily on state funding because lower property values make it harder to raise revenues through local property taxes. Of the 10 schools with the smallest per-pupil funding shortfall, seven are in St. Louis County, where local property taxes provide a greater amount of money. Bills aimed at teenage tanning KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas and Missouri lawmakers have joined the national debate on whether young people should be allowed to use tanning beds that critics say sharply increase the odds of getting skin cancer. In Kansas, legislators are considering a measure that bans minors from indoor tanning, while their counterparts in Missouri are considering a bill to require anyone under 17 to get a parent’s permission before tanning. “It’s a very, very important public health issue,” said Kansas Rep. David Crum, an Augusta Republican and chair of the House health committee. Public health advocates have been sounding the alarms for years about the risks associated with indoor tanning and added exposure to ultraviolet light, especially among teenagers. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that those who use tanning beds before age 35 have a 59 percent higher chance of contracting melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer. Six states ban indoor tanning for anyone under 18, and legislation is pending in a seventh to do the same thing. At least 33 states regulate tanning for minors. Salon owners in both Kansas and Missouri said they already take safety precautions for their customers and that government pressure is getting too heavy-handed. “I can get really mad about the whole situation,” said Terri Wheeler, owner of the Sun Scene salon in Raymore. “I think that the government is overstepping their bounds. It’s up to the parents to parent. It’s not up to the government to parent the children.” In Kansas, salons like Bask Tanning in Bonner Springs already are regulated and must be licensed. There are 500 licensed tanning salons in Kansas, including 45 in Johnson County and 10 in Wyandotte County. Lori Chapman, owner of Bask Tanning, said a ban for minors would be a setback for her salon because about 40 percent of her clients are teens. She said she already requires parents’ permission for clients under 18. “By no means is it going to put me out of business, but it will definitely hurt my bottom line,” Chapman said. The study, led by dermatologists at the school, found that 65 percent of the 243 businesses surveyed would allow someone under 13 to tan. Employees at 43 percent of the businesses said there was no risk associated with indoor tanning. DWI checkpoint yields 10 meth arrests OZARK, Mo. (AP) — A southwest Missouri police checkpoint aimed at drunken drivers on St. Patrick’s Day instead snared 10 people suspected of possessing methamphetamine. A total of 12 arrests stemmed from the checkpoint Monday in Christian County, of which only one was for driving while intoxicated. The other was for possession of marijuana. Ozark Police Chief Lyle Hodges says three of the 12 suspects arrested in the operation also had outstanding warrants. He says the number of drug arrests — and lack of drunken driving charges — was unusual. Tell them you read it in the — Call (660) 562-2424.

I reached for a snazzy pair of bright blue and silver ones that were at about chest-height. Right in the Goldilocks range. “How about these?” I asked, holding them out for his perusal. “I don’t like sneakers,” His Royal Highness whined. of high tops,” I groaned. “You need a regular pair.” I waved said pair in his face. And it was at that point he did the one thing that is guaranteed to light my fire. Every. Single. Time. He threw me The Shrug. That nonvocal way of flipping someone off. A complete dismissal. As if saying, “Whatever. You can stop talking now. I’m done listening.” In all honesty...he learned that move from me. So you can imagine how very little I enjoy to be on the receiving end of it. “That’s it. We’re going home,” I announced, grabbed him not-sodelicately by the neck of his shirt and headed for the exit. He went without a further peep. Or a shrug. It was, without a doubt, a quiet ride home with Mr. Sulky Pants. Upon our arrival at home, my husband asked, “How’d it go?” I gritted my teeth, threw a Mom Look at the royal heir sulking in the backseat, and said, “I’m done.” I slammed the car door and began marching inside. I stopped and turned round. “Almost nine years of shoe shopping, and I’m not doing it anymore,” I vowed. I pointed a finger in my husband’s direction and said, “You can take him from now on.” “OK,” my husband shrugged with a fair amount of nonchalance. He threw our son a thumbs up and stated, “No problem. We guys can do anything.” And that’s when I gave him The Shrug. I should be commended. I wanted to give him The Finger.

The shouting. The pain. Followed by vows of never being stupid enough to do it again. In the rules of full disclosure, it’s not like I’ve had actually had a bikini wax. The number of people allowed in that area can be counted on one hand. With a lot of fingers left over. With yearly gynecological exams, marriage and pregnancy, a woman has very little mystery left in her life. So far be it from me to farm out that little maintenance project to anyone but myself. But if I were to visit a salon for that type of procedure, I’m pretty sure the atmosphere would be similar to taking my son shopping for shoes. Shoes, people. Not to the dentist or to the doctor’s office for a flu shot. Shoes. And not dress shoes for church and special occasions. No, this was a trip in search of dear God - a new pair of sneakers! Which, in all honesty, is the coolest thing in the entire world. There we were, standing in front of a wall stacked with shoes of all shapes, sizes and colors. It looked like a rainbow on steroids had thrown up. And for anyone who’s taken a kid shopping for such things knows there’s a system at play here. The shoes on the top? I’d need to sell a kidney to afford those. The ones on the bottom shelves? They’d have been great for my 90-year-old grandma. Twenty years ago. So just like Goldilocks, we’re here for the in-the-middles. The kind the kid can wear with enough “Aren’t these awesome?” swagger without needing to sell my plasma Kelley Baldwin My jaw hit the floor. “Whaddaya mean you don’t like sneakers?” I asked with more than a fair amount of incredulity. Considering the kid was practically born with a pair of Nikes on his feet, I was taken aback by this new revelation. Since when did he not like sneakers? What else was I unaware of? Did he still like basketball? Was SpongeBob still his favorite cartoon character? Am I no longer his favorite person in the entire world? Where does the madness stop??! But before I could get too wound up, he rolled his eyes and whined, “I like high-top sneakers, not those regular ones.” Oh, for the love of God. “But you already have two pairs Contact Your Lawmakers STATE SEN.

Well, usually, it is because I do a lot of geeky things. I play Dungeons & Dragons, lament on the importance of movies and their different genres, read comic books, collect as many technological devices as humanly possible, and engage in other assorted activities that most people would consider geeky. I have even “cosplay”-ed before (dressed up in costume for an event). The one thing I have never done, in my entire life, is play the nerd-tastic card game known as Magic the Gathering. This would all change on Monday night. Usually on Mondays, some friends and I get together to roleplay through a labyrinth of obstacles, non-player characters, and any other diabolical events that our dungeon master can muster. Every so often, though, not all of us can make it, and we change it from role-play night to game night. On those nights we usually bust out the board games and have a fun, off-night where we can still enjoy a nerd night and not have to worry about someone missing out on a day of our mission in D&D. Last week, when we fell players short, we played the Star Wars miniature game. That was fun but the gameplay seemed a bit weighted towards the Rebel Alliance. Or am I just saying that because I joined the Empire instead. Heck, I just wanted to say — just once — “You rebel scum.” This week gaming night was again the route we went. But what game would it be? A friend brought up I have always wanted to but never had a chance to play it with my friends. So I finally got a chance to play, and I must say that I did enjoy myself immensely. It is a detailed game that requires some thought and planning, but once you get the main gist down it can be hours of fun. Plus, it helps when your fellow gamers “let” you win the first game. Of course, I almost won the second game too, but my friend Fred had a diabolical card that squashed my initial attack and left me utterly defenseless. This allowed Fred to destroy what was left of my life. Of course, after finding out that I loved this game, I was a little disheartened when I remembered the one place to buy ‘Magic’ cards in town was no longer open. Curses! For me, this almost makes my geekdom complete. Roleplaying games — check, online gaming — check, cosplaying — check, tech nerd — check, movie geek — check, and now ... Magic the Gathering aficionado — check. So if you are bored on a gaming night, and you are looking for a fun way to pass the time, let me recommend Magic the Gathering to you. If you are a geek like me, you certainly won’t be disappointed. We want to be your hometown newspaper! Super rare Magic card! playing a game that I have always heard about but never had the chance to enjoy. Magic the Gathering was that game. I know what you are saying, “Gary has never played Magic the Gathering?” Nope, not once. Submit Letters to the Editor to: email@example.com or mail to: Maryville Daily Forum P.O. Box 188, Maryville, Mo. 64468 Maryville Daily Forum Thursday, March 20, 2014 Page 5 Death row inmate: new evidence shows innocence ST. LOUIS (AP) — A death row inmate has asked the Missouri Supreme Court for a new trial, saying new evidence undermines a conviction that was key to his death sentence and that investigators whose questionable conduct led to the overturning of another capital case also mishandled his case. John Middleton, 54, was sentenced to death for the 1995 killings of Randy Hamilton and Stacey Hodge in rural Mercer County and of Iowa resident Alfred Pinegar in neighboring Harrison County. Prosecutors say Middleton was a methamphetamine dealer who killed the three people because he feared they might snitch to law enforcement. His girlfriend pleaded guilty in 1998 for her involvement in the three shooting deaths. Middleton doesn’t have an execution date, but the state Supreme Court issued a show cause order for him in January, signaling his lawyers that they should put forward any arguments as to why a new execution date shouldn’t be set. In a series of court filings, Middleton’s lawyers lay out their argument for why they think he deserves a new trial in the Pinegar case. That conviction was cited as an aggravating factor justifying the death sentences he received for the two subsequent murder convictions, so a reversal of the Pinegar conviction could affect those sentences. Among other things, Middleton’s attorneys contend that he couldn’t have killed Pinegar. They say a Missouri Highway Patrol sergeant provided a forensic scientist with the wrong date on which insect remains were retrieved from Pinegar’s body — a method used to determine the time of death. That scientist, a University of Missouri entomologist, now says that his revised calculations show that Pinegar died one day later, when Middleton was in jail in southern Iowa on an unrelated charge. The lawyers also submitted a sworn affidavit from a new witness who says he was beaten in front of Pinegar’s corpse by two rival meth dealers to scare him into silence. Erosion project begins at Mozingo TONY BROWN/DAILY FORUM A gravel truck dumps an 18-ton load of rip-rap near the main boat dock at Mozingo Lake Recreation Park on Wednesday afternoon. Later this spring, the rock will be moved to the shoreline of the 1,000-acre lake in an attempt to stem erosion. The rip-rap, also known as shot rock or rock armor, was purchased by the city of Maryville using a $20,000 grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation, which also required a dollar-for-dollar in-cash and in-kind municipal match. Shore areas to be reinforced include spots adjoining both boat docks and near the recreational vehicle campground on the east side of the lake. Minnesota court reverses suicide-aid convictions MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Supreme Court on Wednesday reversed the convictions of a former nurse accused of encouraging two people whom he met online to kill themselves. William Melchert-Dinkel was convicted in 2011 of two counts of aiding suicide. The judge found that he “intentionally advised and encouraged” an English man and a Canadian woman to take their own lives. The high court struck down a section of the state’s assisted suicide law that makes it a crime to “encourage” someone to commit suicide, but upheld part of the law that makes it a crime to “assist” in someone’s suicide. Since the lower court judge did not rule on whether Melchert-Dinkel “assisted” in a suicide, the high court sent the case back to that judge for further consideration. “It’s a legal system, it’s not a justice system. The two are completely different,” the Canadian woman’s mother, Deborah Chevalier, said by phone. “At the very least, the world knows what he’s done. His friends, his family know what he’s done. He can’t run away from that.” Her 18-year-old daughter, Nadia Kajouji, jumped into a frozen river in 2008. According to Rice County Attorney Paul Beaumaster, who prosecuted the case, it’s now up to the lower court judge to decide whether the evidence showed that Melchert-Dinkel “assisted” in the suicides. Melchert-Dinkel’s attorney, Terry Watkins, said he doesn’t believe there is enough evidence. Beaumaster disagreed. The court ruling says speech alone can be used to “assist” or enable a suicide if it goes beyond merely expressing a moral viewpoint or providing comfort or support. “Here, we need only note that speech instructing another on suicide methods falls within the ambit of constitutional limitations on speech ... “ the justices wrote. Beaumaster said the fact that the justices sent the case back to the lower court shows there’s evidence that Melchert-Dinkel assisted in the deaths. Justice Alan Page disagreed that the case should be sent back to determine whether Melchert-Dinkel “assisted” in the suicides. He said there’s not enough evidence, and it is a waste of the court’s resources. The high court’s ruling could affect the outcome of another case that challenged the constitutionality of Minnesota’s law that bans people from assisting, advising or encouraging suicide. That case involves members of Final Exit Network, a national right-to-die group, who were involved in the 2007 death of an Apple Valley woman. That case is also pending before the Supreme Court. Evidence presented in MelchertDinkel’s case showed he was obsessed with suicide and sought out depressed people online. When he found them, he posed as a suicidal female nurse, feigned compassion and offered instructions on how they could kill themselves. Officials hit the road to deliver ‘meals on wheels’ Continued from Page 1 who also commended Wright and her staff for their day-in, day-out dedication. “Katie and her team are the heroes here,” Rice said. “They do it every day and help a lot of folks who just don’t have the income (to buy enough nourishing food) and face increasing costs. It’s a real blessing to have the Senior Center here operating as it does. And they do things on a shoestring budget and still make it work.” White agreed that the center’s work is vital in a sprawling rural county like Nodaway that has a large number of elderly residents. “A lot of people just wouldn’t eat,” he said, adding that for some seniors physical impairment and difficulty getting to the store create obstacles that may be just as hard to overcome as poverty. The sheriff also noted that volunteers who deliver meals on wheels provide extra sets of ears and eyes and can make it known when patrons who have little contact with the outside world have become ill or injured. In addition to providing volunteer-delivered meals, the center also provides a valuable social outlet for seniors who choose to gather daily in the dining area. On Wednesday, those with birthdays this month were treated to cake donated by the local McDonald’s restaurant. Couples celebrating anniversaries received two $10 gift certificates courtesy of the Maryville Hy-Vee supermarket. Delivered or served on site, each meal cooked at the center costs $6.50 to prepare, $1.30 of which is covered by federal dollars. Over-60 patrons are asked for a $3 donation, and the center makes up the $2.20 difference with local funding. R-II board accepts resignation, implements program Continued from Page 1 see our students be very successful both in and out of the classroom,” he said. In green-lighting the talented and gifted program the R-II board approved the framework for an initiative that will provide curriculum and instruction tailored for students considered to have exceptional academic promise. Titled EXPO for “exceptional potential,” preparations for the new program will begin in April, when student screening is to be conducted based on existing MAP scores. In May, the Stanford 10 achievement test will be administered at the kindergarten, first- and second-grade levels to further identify students who might benefit from EXPO instruction. From that point, the 20142015 school year will be used for further student screening, communication with parents and selection of an EXPO instructor. Tentatively, the program will be introduced into the classroom at the start of the 2015-2016 school year. “If we’re going to offer a gifted program, we want to do it right,” superintendent Larry Linthacum said. “This timeline will allow us to do that.” Also during its regular session of Tuesday, the board: • Approved the 20142015 school calendar. The first day of classes for students will be Aug. 14, 2014, and the last day of school is scheduled for May 15, 2015. The calendar provides 183 school days and 190 staff days during the fall and spring terms combined. • Accepted the following resignations: Suzanne Cadle, family and consumer science teacher at Northwest Technical School; Cynthia Mires, student support teacher at Eugene Field Elementary School; Nic Vasquez, vocal music director and drama sponsor at Maryville High School; and Joe Drake, wrestling coach at Maryville High School. • Awarded the district transportation contract to Jarnik Buses Inc. for the 2014-2015 school year. • Hired Nic Mattson to serve as an additional assistant baseball coach, a move that comes after more than 40 students signed up for the team this spring. • Approved the summer school schedule, which will run from June 2 to June 19. • Discussed the upcoming bond election set for Tuesday, April 8, when district patrons will decide whether or not R-II should issue $10.25 million in bonds for construction of a performing arts center at the high school in addition to other capital improvements on all three of the district’s campuses.

CROSSWORD BRIDGE BY PHILLIP ALDER SUDOKU From a weak major to a weak minor Ernie Harwell, who called the play-by-play for the Detroit Tigers for 42 years, said, “Everybody in the minor leagues -- if you’re a player, an announcer, whatever -- wants Each row, column and set of 3-by-3 boxes must contain the numbers 1 through 9 without repetition. to be in the big leagues.” At the bridge table, when we see a long minor suit, we probably wish it were a major suit. The game revolves around majors and no-trump, not minors. However, when we have a long minor, we must make the best pitch we can. In yesterday’s deal, opener started with one no-trump and responder had a weak hand with a long major. He bailed out of no-trump into his long suit via a transfer bid. Today, the responder has a long minor. What should he do? I believe everyone should use transfers into the majors, but only take up transfers into the minors with regular partners. (If you would like to learn about these transfers, go to my web site: phillipalderbridge.com.) If you do not use minorsuit transfers, the best way to sign off in a minor is by immediately jumping to three of your long suit, which must contain at least six cards -- as in Sports Have whistle, will travel Local official one of NCAA’s best By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer Maryville Daily Forum Thursday, March 20, 2014 QUOTABLE Page 7 “Our goal would be to be very competitive in all of our events and put ourselves in a position to be successful in competing at the conference and district meets.” -Jefferson, South Nodaway track coach Charley Burch P.O. Box 188, Maryville, MO, 64468 660-562-2424 email@example.com When the NCAA Men’s Division I basketball tournament gets underway today, Maryville will have its own connection, as local resident Terry Oglesby will be working his fifth consecutive tournament as an official. Oglesby, a three-sport athlete at Maryville High School and nephew of legendary Hall of Fame basketball coach Claude Samson, graduated in 1982 and began officiating intramural and city league basketball in 1983 as a way to make a few extra dollars while attending Northwest Missouri State University. “At first, I officiated just to make some extra money,” Oglesby said. “After awhile, I realized it was a good way to stay around the game.” Oglesby credits one person in particular for his development as an official. “I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for Bob Lade,” Oglesby said. “He taught me how to be professional. From how to carry myself on the court to little things like being on time — Bob really helped me learn how to be an official.” Lade, the Director of Recreational Sports at Northwest Missouri State University, is quick to downplay his role in Oglesby’s development. “I encouraged him, especially when he first started,” Lade said. “But he has gotten where he is today because of hard work, great communication skills and a high degree of professionalism.” Oglesby officiated at the high school level from 1990 until the early 2000s. He worked several Missouri state basketball tournaments during that time. He also officiated football and umpired baseball and softball. As his family grew, Oglesby gave up officiating football and baseball to concentrate on basketball. After working six straight nights at the King City basketball tournament in the early 1990s, a fellow official shared some information with Oglesby that caused him to reevaluate his officiating career. “Danny Brown asked me what I was going to make for officiating all six nights,” Oglesby said, “and I told him $300. He said ‘I made $600 last night officiating one women’s college basketball game.’ “I called Bob Lade the next day to ask him how to get into officiating at the college level.” Lade remembers the conversation well. “I had been encouraging him for awhile to go to camp,” Lade said. “Every college conference has a summer camp used to evaluate and hire officials, and I had been telling Terry he needed to go to some of these camps so their evaluators could see what I saw in him. Needless to say, he did well, and they saw that ‘it’ factor that he possesses.” Oglesby worked five years in the Heart of America Conference before moving up to the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA). After his second year working in the MIAA, two friends asked him to attend the Big 12 Conference summer camp. “These guys had been going to the Big 12 camp for six years and it was only about two weeks before camp started,” Oglesby said. “I called and asked if I could sign up to attend and they let me. Of course, I didn’t know they let anyone come try out, as you pay for the camp out of your own pocket. “The guys that I went with told me that if Dale Kelley (Big 12 Director of Officials at that time) pulled you aside at the banquet and said he wanted to talk to you the next day, you were hired,” Oglesby said. “I was sure he wouldn’t talk to me, because, in my opinion, I was nowhere near ready to officiate in the Big 12. Dale Kelley walks up to me at the banquet and said ‘Terry, I want to talk to you in the morning’ and walked away. I was still sure he didn’t See OGLESBY, Page 8 Keeping the peace SUBMITTED PHOTO Maryville basketball official Terry Oglesby attempts to calm Kansas coach Bill Self down after Oglesby’s partner, John Higgins, assessed a technical foul against a Jayhawks player during the 2013 Big 12 Tournament. 2014 SPRING SPORTS PREVIEW Northwest golf finishes 2nd at Fort Hays Invitational MESA, Ariz. — The Northwest golf team had four top-10 individual finishes and the Bearcats placed second as a team on Tuesday in the final round of the Fort Hays State University Invitational at the Dobson Ranch Golf Course in Mesa, Ariz.

Jefferson, South Nodaway team up for track season By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Northwest senior guard DeShaun Cooper was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches 2014 Coaches’ Division II All-Central District first team on Wednesday. The NABC recognizes the best men’s collegiate basketball student-athletes and coaches in the division. Selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC in NCAA Division II, these 88 student-athletes and eight coaches represent the finest bas- ketball players and coaches across America. Cooper, who was a first team CoSIDA/Daktronics all-district performer, was named the 2014 MIAA Player of the Year. He was the team’s leading scorer at 17.4 points per contest. He was twice named the MIAA Athlete of the Week and was named to the All-Central Region Tournament Team. The Bearcats finished the season at 249, reaching the Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA Division II Tournament. KC could pull off Super Bowl By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer Editor’s note: The Daily Forum will be previewing every high school team in Nodaway County as the spring sports season approaches. This is another installment of a series that will be published over the course of the next several weeks. This spring, Jefferson C-123 will be hosting a track co-op with South Nodaway R-IV. The head coach of the co-op will be from Jefferson, Charley Burch. Joyce Stiens, Allie Helzer, and Cree Beverlin will assist him. Jefferson sophomore Jessie Henry, who excelled in high jump, and South Nodaway junior Kristen Nielson, who did well last year in the discus, will return to the team this year. “Our goal would be to be very competi- tive in all of our events and put ourselves in a position to be successful in competing at the conference and district meets,” Burch said. With the returning success from last year, Burch thinks the girls’ team will be successful in the coming year. “I feel like our girls team will be very competitive in challenging for the top of the conference,” Burch said. Both teams will also welcome in quite a few freshman to round out the 31 participants. “I look forward to an exciting season in track with al the athletes we are returning and the resurgence of new athletes coming out,” Burch said. “It is great to see so many freshmen coming out and representing their school, too.” The teams will kick off their season in Albany this year at the Warrior Relays. The meet will take place at the football field in Albany on April 7. Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt believes Kansas City could pull off hosting a Super Bowl after the NFL decided to bring its marquee game to a cold-weather venue this season. That doesn’t mean he expects it to happen anytime soon. Hunt said that the biggest obstacle to Kansas City hosting the Super Bowl remains the number of hotel rooms in the metropolitan area. The league requires at least 40,000 rooms to be available, far more than are available in Kansas City and its suburbs. “It’s something that the commissioner has been pretty consistent about in terms of Kansas City hosting a Super Bowl, that hotel rooms would be our biggest challenge,” Hunt said. “Clearly, the NFL has a set of guidelines for any Super Bowl, but I think in certain cases they’re willing to overlook certain things. So maybe that could happen.” The next three Super Bowls have already been awarded to Glendale, Ariz., San Francisco and Houston and NFL owners will vote this spring on the 2017-18 championship game. That means that Kansas City would have to wait until at least 2019 for its chance. Even then, it would almost certainly receive strong competition from other cold-weather venues such as Denver, Seattle, New England and Philadelphia. “We could absolutely pull it off,” Hunt said. “Putting the hotel rooms aside, I know that we would have a fantastic Super Bowl and all of the guests would have a tremendous time.” He also said it could help if Kansas City lands the 2016 Republican National Convention. The city is competing with several others, including Denver and Las Vegas. “I think that would be very beneficial to a potential Super Bowl bid,” Hunt said of the convention, “and I’m hopeful that Kansas City is going to be selected for that. I’ve heard very good things about our chances.” Page 8 Thursday, March 20, 2014 Maryville Daily Forum Oglesby takes whistle-blowing to one of the highest levels Continued from Page 7 want to hire me, but the next morning he walked up, congratulated me, and told me I was hired and I would be hearing from his secretary in a couple of days.” Oglesby’s ride back to Maryville from the camp was especially quiet, and provided lots of anxious moments. “Neither of the guys I went with had gotten hired,” Oglesby said, “and I didn’t want to say anything to them, so I couldn’t tell anyone. “When I got home, Jacque (Oglesby’s wife) asked how it went, and I told her ‘I think I’ve been hired,’ but I don’t believe it.” Within two days, Oglesby heard from Kelley’s secretary and the news became official — he was a Big 12 Conference official. “I’m very fortunate,” Oglesby said. “I couldn’t do this without lots of help and cooperation from my wife and family. As I moved up, each step took a greater level of commitment. When I was working in the Heart of America or the MIAA, I knew I would be late, but I would always end up sleeping in my own bed. “It doesn’t work that way now, as there’s lots more overnight travel involved. In fact, travel is the worst part of the job for me.” Currently Oglesby officiates in the Big 12 Conference, the Big 10 Conference, the Missouri Valley Conference and the Big East Conference in addition to some smaller colleges. “I had worked Creighton games for years when they were in the Missouri Valley Conference,” Oglesby said. “When they made the move to the Big East, they Oglesby just finished working his sixth straight Big 12 Tournament. To put that accomplishment in perspective, consider that of the 12 officials who worked that tournament, six had worked a Final Four game within the past two years. ���I’m still a competitive person,” Oglesby said. “I want to work the highest level games I can work. The ultimate would be to work a Final Four game. “I think I’ve survived in this business because I always remember two things: first of all, there’s not one person in the arena who paid a nickel to watch me officiate. Secondly, I’m human, and I’m going to miss some calls. You have to be confident, but never arrogant.” “It’s tough enough to get to the level Terry has achieved in his career,” Lade said. “But the real compliment to Terry is that once you get there, you have to be good enough to stay there, and he certainly has.” Oglesby watches film of every game he officiates, as he strives to improve his technique, mechanics and floor positioning. “There’s an official’s evaluator at every game,” Oglesby said. “After every game, I will get a DVD or a direct download to my iPad of the game, depending on the conference, and I will watch them repeatedly. You’re always looking for ways to improve.” Several times each season, Oglesby will be in contact with Lade after a game, either by phone or text. “Whenever I can catch him working a game on television, I try to sit down and watch,” Lade said. “Then we will talk after the game and I will let him know what I saw.” Besides his “bucket list” experience at Madison Square Garden, Oglesby listed some of the most memorable and enjoyable venues he’s worked. They include Allen Fieldhouse at the University of Kansas, Assembly Hall at the University of Indiana and the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, which is home to Creighton University basketball. “I officiated senior day at Kansas earlier this year,” Oglesby said. “Kansas was playing Texas, who had beaten them earlier in the season. Allen Fieldhouse that day might have been the loudest place I’ve ever worked.” He also stresses that while the appeal of working at the college level is obvious; don’t get in a hurry to move up. “Move up as slowly as you can,” Oglesby said. “I was 35-years-old and had worked lots of high school and college games before I went to Big 12 camp, and even then, I didn’t think I was ready. “Officiating is really competitive now. I work the conference camps as a clinician and all of the people that try out are really good. They’re in good shape and they’re very good mechanically. It’s tough to get started.” In a perfect world, Oglesby would like to officiate another 10 years, then reevaluate and see where everything stands at that time. “I do know one thing,” Oglesby said. “If a league official or an evaluator questions my ability to work at that level, they won’t have to drag me away. I have so much respect for the game and the opportunities I’ve been given, that to hang on and give anything less than my best effort would be disrespectful.” Outta my way SUBMITTED PHOTO NCAA basketball official Terry Oglesby gets some stern words from legendary basketball coach Bobby Knight during a Texas Tech game. Oglesby, of Maryville, works 70-75 basketball games each season in the Big 12, Big 10, Big East and Missouri Valley Conferences. were allowed to recommend some officials to bring into the conference, and coach (Greg) McDermott recommended me.” Working in the Big East Conference allowed Oglesby to fulfill an item on his officiating “bucket list.” “I got to travel to New York and officiate a game in Madison Square Garden,” Oglesby said. “I thought that was pretty neat when you think of all of the sports history that’s occurred in that building.” Oglesby admitted that many people have some misconceptions about the travel involved in officiating. “Some people think it’s like a vacation, and when I’m not officiating, I’m out sightseeing. When I travel to a city, I see the airport, the hotel and the arena.” Oglesby said all of the conferences that he works for require him to take the earliest flight available to his destination city. A typical trip sees him leaving his home around 4 a.m. to drive to either Kansas City or Omaha, where he will catch the early flight. When he arrives, he will go to the hotel and get something to eat, take a nap if time allows, then head to the arena. Once the game is over, he again grabs a quick meal, and then goes to bed in order to catch the early flight the next morning to his next destination. “Someone asked me if New York was pretty cool,” Oglesby said. “About all I could tell them from my cab rides to and from the arena was that they have a lot of traffic.” Of the 2,500 registered Division I officials, 96 get to work the first round of the NCAA tournament, and 54 get to work again in the round of 32. Oglesby will be in San Diego at the West Regional Tournament, and will be working in both the round of 64 (Friday) and the round of 32 (Sunday). At that point the NCAA evaluates the officials and then decides which 16 officials advance to the round of 16. This will be Oglesby’s fifth year working in the NCAA tournament and he hopes this is year he will advance beyond the round of 32. Thursday, March 20, 2014 Maryville Daily Forum Page 9 Entertainment ENTERTAINMENT BRIEFS Canaan Smith added to Northwest spring concert Abigail Breslin & Eleanor Zichy in ‘Haunter.’ A film by Vincenzo Natali. An IFC Films release. STEVE WILKIE MARYVILLE, Mo. – Northwest Missouri State University has announced an addition to its spring concert lineup, which now includes country artist Canaan Smith with previously announced artists Gloriana, Jana Kramer and Sarah Darling. Northwest’s annual spring concert is set for Saturday, April 12, at Bearcat Arena. Doors to the venue open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Student tickets are $10 and available at the Student Services Center on the first floor of the Administration Building, beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, Feb. 24. Remaining tickets will be available to the general public for $20, starting at 8 a.m. Monday, March 3. At that time, tickets also will be available for purchase via phone by calling 660.562.1212 or online. Michael Eppley, the Student Activities Council’s director of concert programming, said the student group is pleased to bring what promises to be an energizing show with multiple artists to Bearcat Arena. Due to the length of the show, Eppley said that for the first time SAC also will sell concessions at the arena. “We haven’t had the opportunity to have a country act for a while so this will be a great experience for everyone at Northwest,” Eppley said. “This will be the biggest production that we have put on in years, and I am very proud and excited about the atmosphere it will create on our campus.” The creators of ‘Haunter’ scared up a creepy film worth watching. Haunter By Gary Darling Staff Writer New ‘Star Wars’ to be set 30 years after ‘Jedi’ It has been quite a long time since I have found a scary film that was worth watching. Time and time again I have found that the horror genre has been lacking in any sort of creativity or quality of story telling. When the chance came to watch the IFC film ‘Haunter’, I really didn’t want to sit down and watch it. I was worried that I would be disappointed, yet again. Then something weird and wonderful happened as I watched this film, it was good. I found myself immersed in the story that was unfolding in front of me. It was a welcome surprise. Not only was the acting top notch but the story was well written, that isn’t always the case with a scary movie. Besides that, I found myself trying to figure out the clever twist but never could. That is something that doesn’t happen all that often. The story seemed to be hinting one way and would end up going another. Yes, it was truly a surprise to me. Lisa (Abigail Breslin) is a typical teenage girl who is one day short of her sixteenth birthday. Oh, there is one small twist, she is dead and is constantly reliving the day before she turns sixteen. Then, one day, Lisa starts to hear noises that aren’t normal in her every day routine. This scares her but doesn’t stop her from trying to figure out who or what this could possibly be. What she finds is something that will both shock her and turn her own existence upside down. That is, if she can “survive” what is coming. Overall, I can’t believe how much I did enjoy this film. Now it wasn’t a typical horror film, you don’t see much blood and guts. The real magic here is the mood that the director builds through lighting and misdirection. There is some really well done moments in this film and I loved it. Now this movie wasn’t perfect and it seemed like a weird combination of the movie ‘The Others’ and ‘Groundhog Day’ but it was still ninety minutes well spent. If you are looking for a good nail biter that will keep you guessing, give this one a shot. I found ‘Haunter’ to be a bit of a surprise and you may too. LOS ANGELES (AP) — The new “Star Wars” has an official timeline and one confirmed returning character: robot R2-D2. Director J.J. Abrams will begin shooting in May on “Star Wars: Episode VII,” which is set three decades after 1983’s “Return of the Jedi,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said Tuesday. Speaking at the company’s annual shareholder’s meeting in Portland, Ore., Iger said the movie would feature “some very familiar faces along with a trio of new, young leads.” Abrams has a penchant for secrecy, and Iger said R2-D2 was the only “official cast member” he would announce. “Episode VII” is set for release in December 2015. Iger also said Pixar plans a third “Cars” movie and a sequel to 2004’s “The Incredibles.” Coldplay’s Chris Martin to help on ‘The Voice’ NEW YORK (AP) — Coldplay singer Chris Martin is bringing his expertise to NBC’s music competition show “The Voice.” The network said Martin will participate in the “battles” round that begins March 31, advising singers on vocal technique and stage presence. The singers are vying for the attention of their team coaches, who must decide who gets to move on in the show. “The Voice” has established itself this season as the most popular of the music shows, eclipsing the long-running champ “American Idol” on Fox. The guest role is good promotion for Martin and Coldplay, which is releasing a new album in May. ‘Best of best’ of Ansel Adams’ photos on display was printing with a particular intensity in mind.” These were the photos the pioneer of art photography considered his best, Hellman continued, and he would take special pains in reproducing them to make sure people knew that. “He spoke about that at the time, how later in life he wanted to create images that were more impactful,” said Hellman, assistant curator in the museum’s Department of Photographs. Although the collection contains several instantly recognizable images, such as “Moon and Half Dome,” photographed in California’s Yosemite National Park in 1960, and “The Tetons and the Snake River” captured in Wyoming in 1942, it’s safe to say even serious students of his work haven’t seen photos quite like these. The difference is likely best displayed in two large prints of arguably Adams’ most famous work, “Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico.” The museum set photo printed by Adams in 1980 hangs side-by-side with one he printed in 1948. In a brief video clip accompanying the exhibition, Adams describes how he captured the image on a late November afternoon in 1941. He was returning to Santa Fe from a day of fruitlessly searching for subjects to photograph, when he caught a glimpse out of his car window of an “extraordinary” scene of the moon rising over a cemetery. “I practically ditched the car, and I had some companions with me,” he recalled. “I started yelling, you know, ‘Get me the eight-by-ten, get me the tripod.’” He managed to get off exactly one shot before he lost the light from the setting sun that had been illuminating the crosses marking the cemetery’s graves — and providing the element that made the photo. Although the brilliance of Adams’ work is clearly seen in the 1948 print, it’s displayed in much more intense contrast in the 1980 version: The crosses are brighter, the night sky is darker, the buildings in the background and the landscape in the foreground are sharper. “My parents owned several ‘Moonrises,’ and to put them together and look at the differences from how they changed over time is really fascinating,” said Carol Vernon, who with her husband, Robert Turbin, gave “The Museum Set” to the Getty. Under her parents’ agreement, the photos could have stayed in the family, but she and her husband thought it better for the public to have a chance to see them in an environment where they could be carefully preserved in the future. “Composition was paramount for him and he spent a lot of time before he ever pushed the button and snapped the shutter,” said Vernon, who got to know Adams over the years. “But he also was an incredible technician in the darkroom.” How he developed those skills is explained in the exhibition, which includes photos ranging from 1921 to 1960. It was in the 1940s that Adams came up with his Zone System, dividing an image into 10 specific zones, ranging from black to white. And it was while photographing “Monolith, The Face of Half Dome,” in 1927 with a camera with a glassslide negative that he said he devised the system for picture-taking called Visualization. “As I replaced the slide, I began to visualize how the print was to appear,” Adams would say later. “I began to see in my mind’s eye the finished product.” That, said Kurt Molnar, a photography instructor who in his early 20s worked in Adams’ gallery and lived in a shack next door to him, was the greatest lesson he imparted — to every art photographer who followed him. “More than anything I learned from Ansel was his ability to take pictures with his eyes and with his mind,” said Molnar, who now teaches photography at Lake Tahoe Community College in California’s Sierra Nevada, where Adams captured so many of his iconic images. “Let’s say you’re standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon,” Molnar continued. “Most people are going to see the entire vista. He could envision, he could see in his mind, the finished product before he even took the picture.” This March 14, 2014 photo shows a photo exhibit entitled, “In Focus: Ansel Adams” at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. By JOHN ROGERS AP Writer NICK UT, AP LOS ANGELES (AP) — During the last years of his life, Ansel Adams pored over the tens of thousands of negatives he’d carefully stored since his teens, setting aside 70 he determined would stand as his greatest works of art. Adams offered to personally print, sign and sell sets of 25 photographs from them — but with several strings attached: He would select the first 10 and let buyers choose the other 15. But not just anybody with $30,000 to spend in 1980 could purchase the collection he called “The Museum Set Edition of Fine Prints.” They would only be sold to people Adams judged serious collectors and only after they promised never to resell them. If they left the buyer’s family, they would have to go to a museum. Among the few dozen who made the cut were the late Leonard and Marjorie Vernon, prominent Southern California collectors whose set was given to the J. Paul Getty Museum in 2011 and is now the centerpiece of “In Focus: Ansel Adams,” which opens Tuesday. Augmented by several other Adams’ photos from the museum’s collection, the exhibition marks the 30th anniversary of the photographer’s death next month. More than that, it provides a fresh look at both Adams’ genius with a camera and in the darkroom. “What sets them off, really,” said Karen Hellman, who curated the exhibit, “is that they were created all within a span of years by Ansel Adams himself, at a time when he Page 10 Thursday, March 20, 2014 Maryville Daily Forum Classified P.O.

On County Government Day, the students were also given a tour of both the Nodaway County Administration Center and the courthouse, during which they met various other elected officials. Students take a look inside county government By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer Eighth grade students from all across the county gathered on the courthouse square in Maryville on Wednesday to learn about the inner workings of their local government. The youngsters made stops at the Nodaway County Courthouse, Maryville Public Safety and the Nodaway County Administration Center. The tours were part of County Government Day, which is hosted by the American Legion Auxiliary. Arlene Masters is the longtime chair of County Government Day along with co-chair Catherine Auffert. “It’s a learning experience that they probably will not get to see unless they happen to be involved,” Auffert said. “They just learn where things are, so when they become adults they know where to go to get assistance.” While at the courthouse, the students visited the main secondfloor courtroom where Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice and presiding Circuit Judge Roger Prokes talked about how cases come to trial and other court procedures. “It gives them an opportunity to get hands-on experience about how government works,” Rice said, “especially local government, which is going to be the government that will have the most impact on their daily lives. This is terrific to give them an opportunity to get outside the books and make it real for them. The ability to have Judge (Prokes) here and have someone in real life answer their questions and to make it real for them. I think that’s where the real learning happens.” In addition to listening to presentations by Prokes and Rice, the students took part in a mock court case, sitting in as jurors. Rice said the experience is a good way to show students how courts really function as compared to what is portrayed on “Law & Order”-style television shows. “On TV, the TV lawyers don’t have to follow the rules of evidence,” Rice said. “It’s so embellished on controversy. On one show, I see fights between lawyers, and that just doesn’t happen in real life. But giving these kids the chance to see what a real courtroom looks like with a real judge, and hearing real jury instructions, that lets them know what really happens.” Prokes said one reason the day is important is that it works to counteract the cynicism many citizens feel toward government. “So often in our society, we have turned into grumblers about government and about what government isn’t doing and the errors that it’s making,” Prokes said. “I think having the young people come in and see the elected officeholders and hear what really goes on, it may open their eyes. … The government is a group of people who are trying to help them do the right things. Here in court, it’s excellent for them to have a little contact. Everyone knows about courts and judges and getting penalized, but to see how it works is really beneficial for them.” At the County Administration Center across the street from the courthouse, the students met with various elected officials, including the county commissioners, recorder of deeds, treasurer and assessor. The students also traveled to Maryville Public Safety, where they learned about police and fire protection and got an up-close look at a patrol car. Maryville Middle School social studies teacher Brain Grow said the field trip is an important learning opportunity for his students. “I think it’s important for them to get to experience local goverment and county government,” Grow said. “They get to interact with county officials and see how public safety works. They enjoy getting out of class, but they (also) like getting to see how government works.” The event closed Wednesday afternoon with a flag-folding ceremony, an appearance by “Jerik,” the county’s drug-sniffing canine, and meetings with troopers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and soldiers from the Missouri National Guard.
