U.S. Congressman Sam Graves visits “9-12” Group

U.S. Congressman for the Sixth District, Republican Sam Graves visited Paris on Tuesday, Aug. 21, as guests of “9-12 We The People of Monroe County”. Before a large crowd in the Paris Library “9-12” representative Marcie Buckman welcomed the assembled and introduced Congressman Graves. Buckman noted that Congressman Graves is a lifelong resident of Missouri’s 6th Congressional District. As a small businessman and a sixth-generation family farmer, Graves has spent his life working to make Missouri a better place to live, work, and raise a family. Buckman went on to explain that in Congress, Graves serves as the Chairman of the Small Business Committee. The Congressman also serves on the Transportation Committee and is one of only a handful of farmers in Congress. In 1992, Graves won his first race for State Representative. In 1994, Graves was elected as State Senator for the 12th Senatorial District and subsequently re-elected in 1998. He was elected to the House of Representatives in 2000 and re-elected overwhelmingly in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010. Graves is a lifelong resident of Tarkio, a small city not far from the Iowa and Nebraska borders. He graduated from the University of Missouri - Columbia. He is a former volunteer fireman and Eagle Scout and also a sixth-generation farmer. Congressman Graves addressed the assembled discussing what the House of

Representatives has accomplished recently. “I cannot tell you how important this election is,” said Congressman Graves. “We are now at a crossroads. Spending is way out of control.” Congressman Graves discussed the vicepresidential pick of Paul Ryan and noted he was very excited about the choice of his close friend and thought it would revitalize the nominee and the campaign. Congressman Graves and residents in attendance discussed presidential executive orders and what the Republican Party and Congress were doing to “rein in” these orders. “We have passed bills to help stop the proliferation of executive orders but we cannot get them through the Senate so they are not yet law,” explained Graves. A question was asked about the addition of amendments to bills that caused them to lose their definition. Graves responded that the current speaker was doing a good job at making sure that any amendments to bills were germane to the actual bill rather than just an addition to be an addition. He also praised the speaker with adding a three day rule before a bill can be voted on to allow for the bill to be read in its entirety. Graves also talked to the crowd about the Farm Bill, and the Drought Relief Bill. Graves said the Drought Relief Bill would pass if the Senate brings it to a vote. In regards to the Farm Bill, Graves said he Continued to page 9

The City of Paris has issued the following press release regarding the payment of utility bills: Due to the record heat in July,

which led to high electric usage, the City of Paris is waiving late penalty fees for the bills until 3 p.m., on Monday, September 10th. If utility payments are not received by that time the late penalty fees will be assessed and the utilities will be subject to turn off.

The Deliverance of Todd Akin

As I write this Congressman Todd Akin has only a few hours to withdraw from the U.S. Senate race here in Missouri without having to obtain a court order to do so later. Mr. Akin is under fire for remarks made in an interview with reporter Charles Jaco that aired on St. Louis television this past Sunday. His comments about “legitimate rape” and the way that victims of rape have in the female body, “ways to try to shut that whole thing down” thus avoiding becoming pregnant as a result of the rape. The firestorm of criticism was expected from Democrats, rape victims and those who treat or advocate for them. But joining in loud and clear were Mitt Romney and many other prominent Republicans who called for him to withdraw from the race so that some other candidate could challenge Senator Claire McCaskill in November. He was not only thrown under the bus but severely beaten first and his prostrate body used for a speed bump for a lot of candidates buses hoping to be a part of capturing the U.S. Senate this time around. To add to his problems in continuing in the race, Akin was advised that the Republican Senatorial Committee would not financially support his candidacy if he continued in the race. Representative Akin, yesterday and today so far, vows to continue his candidacy. He believes that his admission of a mistake and apology make things right and that it all was a minor slip of the tongue. In another time and context these or similar words may not have resulted in the same reactions by friends and foes alike. Akin could have been considered just an ignoramus from a small state putting his foot into his mouth again and his retraction and apology to the strains of the banjo duet from “Deliverance” playing in the background da da dum dum da and da da dum dum da in response, would be sufficient. Like most of us, I do not know Mr. Akin personally but do feel bad for him that he did work hard to win a primary race, didn’t really say or promote many bad remarks about his opponents and then had this short interview do the damage that has resulted. I fully expect Mr. Akin to quit the race today, stripped of support and financial assistance, and another candidate to be named by the Republicans in short order. Whatever he says about that today, I know I will hear as well the stranger and the backwoods boy and their banjos da da dum dum da in the background.


Just Ask Dave... by David Eales Publisher/Editor Sports! Sports! Sports! High school sports has started and the first games will be played this week in all school sports in the local area including football, softball, golf and baseball. Some people think that there is too much emphasis in the schools on sports. Maybe there is but it this emphasis that helps put schools on the map. Would someone know where Paris or Madison was if not for our teams playing in far-a-way tournaments with numerous other teams from schools we have no idea where they are? By the end of the day (in some David Eales instances an extremely long day) we have new friends or the players have new friends that not only increase our social awareness but help us with that ever important issue of self esteem. It is important to the community, the school, the players and our residents that people take part in these activities. The camaraderie we develop as a part of a group or even as a single individual attending a sporting event has immense impact on many factors. The ticket sales, concession stand profits and even just the feeling the players get from knowing that the community rallies around them helps everyone. Do you have a schedule? Do you know what the games cost? Have you ever been to a game? For a schedule see the sports preview located in this issue of the Monroe County Appeal. The games cost up to $3 per game or if you really enjoy what you are watching you can buy a season pass from the athletic department. The games are played both at Paris and Madison, at the fairgrounds in Paris, and at the school field in Madison. Or if you like golf you can watch the Lady Coyotes play at the Mark Twain Country Club. I have mentioned before that the youth sports program is the best ticket in town. The support of our youth by the community helps them grow into productive future leaders as it shows them positive role models, has a positive direction and helps them develop teamwork and discipline. Will they go on to play in college with sports scholarships ? Some will but most will not. Even the ones that do not, when asked, say that their sports days were some of their most enjoyable and memorable days in school. Academics is very important but it is also good to be tempered with a varied schedule that does include athletics and other extra curricular activities. A successful student is a wellrounded student. All these extra curricular activities are available at their school. It is up to the student, and us the community, to make sure of the results. Have a great week!

Just a Thought My absolute favorite Michael Jackson song is Man In The Mirror. I can remember many days listening to it with tears streaming down my face. It almost always caused me to think about this world and how or if my life was making a difference. As I got older the lyrics to the song ministered to me more and more. There is so much truth and wisdom in that song. Not only does it encourage us to take a look at ourselves first before looking at everything and everyone else and pointing our fingers but it also lets us know that we can make a difference. Sometimes we might think, “Well, I am only one person. What can I do?” or “ One person or vote is not going to change anything.” How wrong that is. One person can do a lot. One person can buy groceries for a struggling family. One person can give encouragement and kind words to a person who feels lonely and depressed. One person can start the process or putting prayer back in schools. One person can have the idea to start a foundation to help sick, poor, disadvantaged children. Then another one person can help make that idea come to fruition. Our church watched a movie last week that was all about what one person can do. The main character had a friend in the neighborhood who he was really close to until they got to high school. In high school the main character was an athlete who was very popular but his childhood friend was not. His friend was made fun of and next thing you know the main character did not talk to his childhood friend at all. The childhood friend

The Man in the Mirror

ends up killing himself which causes the main character to reflect on his own life and the way he was living. He realizes that what he says and does to others can make a difference whether it be good or bad one. He chooses to make a positive one and starts to seek out the kids who appear lonely and unpopular. Throughout the movie he forms friendships with kids at his school who are viewed as outcasts. We later find out that one of the boys he befriended had been contemplating suicide and had even written his mom a note. But because of that one person (the main character) his life turned around. That one person who came up to him at lunch and invited him to sit with them. That one person who hung out with him and let him know he had a friend. That one person who took extra time to be there for him. That one person who didn’t care about what others were saying but instead chose to do the right thing. If each one of us would wake up in the morning and say, “ I am going to make a positive difference today”, and then allow God to use us to make that difference this world truly would be a better place. We need to stop expecting things to get better when we are not doing our part. We need to know that our part isn’t the whole puzzle but our piece is needed to make the puzzle complete. One person doing something positive might not seem like a lot if we are only looking at one person but let’s broaden our view and envision one hundred, one thousand and even one million “one persons” doing something positive. We all have it in us. We all have something to offer. We all have been uniquely designed and made to make a positive difference in the is world. Let’s not only believe this but let’s do it!!!!!

Civil War Update - Porter Continues to Evade the Federals

Editor’s Note: The Monroe County Appeal will feature Civil War articles in each issue until our Regional Edition - Sept. 19, covering the anniversary of the Civil War. The regional issue will be distributed to all residents in Monroe and Ralls Counties. On Aug. 22, 1862 Confederate Colonel Joseph Porter headed southward toward Shelby and Monroe Counties. He encountered 40 of the La Grange enrolled militia, then headed eastward toward La Grange with only 100 men left. By August 25, Porter is rumored to be near Florida, with 1,000 men. The people of Paris were greatly concerned for their safety. General McNeil of the Union Army moved south from Hunnewell and took over the occupation of Paris with 800 soldiers. The citizens of Paris were relieved, and grateful for the protection. On the following day Major Rogers and Dodson left Shelbyville to reinforce McNeil’s troops in Paris. August 27th McNeil moved out after Porter again. He marched from Paris and Hunnewell to Newark and then on to Monticello; where he absorbed into his command the battalion of Major Rogers, of the Second Missouri State Militia. Lewis and Marion counties were full of bands of confederates, and there was great

uneasiness among the Federals. Even Hannibal was thought to be in trouble. August 28, 90 mounted militia were gathered in Palmyra, and under Captain Meredith were sent toward Monroe City to intercept small parties headed toward Porter. The remaining militia under Captain Dubach, were on a train running back and forth between the Ely Station and Hunnewell. Both militia and citizens were warned, “Look out of Porter”. The federals could not keep up with Porter. Each time they pursued him in one direction, he would show up in another. After a skirmish in Santa Fe, fellow sol-

dier Joseph A. Mudd described Porter’s bearing in battle, his perfect poise, his quick grasp of situations, his close attention to details and his reckless exposure of himself. Mudd said to Porter, “Colonel, I don’t believe you know what fear is.” Porter replied, “Fear? Why I’m the biggest coward in the world. I never go under fire that I don’t suffer the tortures of the damned. If I didn’t believe it my duty to be here, I’d go home today.” Porter’s success in the region led President Lincoln to telegraph General McNeil, warning him to put an end to the rebellion in Northeast Missouri, or he would be replaced with someone who could.

It attacks young, old, male, female, white, black, and all socioeconomic levels. It costs millions of dollars to treat and left untreated, can lead to chronic disease, debility, and death. This dreaded disease is OBESITY and it can be prevented. Missouri is one of the ‘FATTEST’ states in the nation. It is a fact that

nearly seven out of 10 Missourians will die each year from cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. All of these conditions are made even more deadly when the patient is obese. Your health department can help you learn how to fight obesity and decrease your chances of developing serious chronic diseases.

Church NEWS

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

The Sunday, Aug. 19 services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Sharon Sweitzer playing piano and Earl Sweitzer on the harmonica playing “Farther Along” and they also played “Whispering Hope” as Donnie Willingham played guitar. Debbie Carey then led in song to “His Way With Thee”; “The Light of the World Is Jesus”; “Faith is the Victory” and “Blest Be the Tie” and Debbie then sang “Come Thou Fount”. Shanda Galloway led the Responsive Call to Worship and the Confession of Sin. Prayer was held for Maurine Rahmeyer; Karen Bryson; Betty Johns; Debbie’s son; James A. Booth; the Grimmetts; Shonda’s joy for family and God is Good; all said the Lord’s Prayer in unison.The message “What if Peace” was based on scripture from Psalms 34 as we allow so many things to steer our peace. Seek peace and pursue it. Some of us have never had peace - anger, death and betrayal can block peace - sometimes life is not fair. Search for CHRISTmas peace everyday. Peace with God, others and yourself. What would you give up for it? Worry, guilt, shame, regret, fears? Surrender all to God’s power! Peace is attainable thru God - pursue what He tells us. Not the ways of the world. Focus on His promises and His love... Go In Peace... Sharon played “Take My Life” as Curt Jackson led the offertory and all sang the “Doxology”. Sharon, Earl and Donnie then played “I’ll Fly Away”. The Benediction prayer was read from Jude 24 and Sharon played “He Keeps Me Singing” as all retired in fellowship. Services are held every Sunday at 9 a.m. and all are welcome to come hear the word of the Lord.

Perry Christian Church

Pastor David Todd

The Perry Christian Church worship hour of Sunday, Aug. 19 began with Arlen Provancha singing “Let’s Just Praise the Lord”. Pastor David Todd led the welcome and Call to Worship. “What Faith Can Do” was sung in praise. “Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me” was the prayer hymn. Our prayers went out to Harlan Murray, Gene Cooper, Kenny Leake, Edith Webber, Gene Schlueter, Lois Friday and Laura Garner. The response was “Let The Words of My Mouth”. Pastor Todd gave the invitation for all to join in Holy Communion. “Let Us Break Bread Together” was sung. Joyce Coleman and Floyd Seelow served as elders. Anthony Elam, Carol Norman, Kennedy Jaspering and Wyatt Lewellen were deacons. Cheri accompanied her father as Arlen sang”You Are My All In All”. Jeanne Gay told the children “in passing through life to show and share all the good feelings they have in knowing Jesus”. Tanner’s good feelings include his trampoline. 1 Kings 2:10-12, 3:3-14 was read by Lou Anne Hetrick for the pastor’s sermon on “Learning to Understand What You Have”. Praise God and recognize the greater promise of love and peace that God bestows on us, for the best is yet to come. The invitation hymn “Trust and Obey” was sung. Brittany Schutte gave her good confession and we are happy to have her as a member of our church family. We dismissed with singing “Nothing but the Blood”. A correction to last week’s notes: The Dye family did not have three new grandchildren, it was the family of Mary Mallory, our friend in Paris is the one to be congratulated.

Paris Presbyterian Church

Pastor John Grimmett

The Paris Presbyterian Church held worship service Sunday, Aug. 19. We had a guest speaker, Shonda Galloway. The ushers were Albert Sinkclear and Randell Galloway. Debbie Carey served as the pianist.

Paris First Baptist Church

Pr. Wesley Hammond

Beginning the service Kathy Miller provided instrumental praises and Keith Hillard gave the invocation. The church members were saddened by the news of the death of Isabelle Freeman. In the absence of Wesley Hammond who was participating in a memorial service elsewhere, Reverend Jimmy Stewart led the service. His sermon was from Mark 10:13-18, “The Little Children and Jesus”. Reverend Stewart related memories that he had as a child raised in the church, of a picture of Jesus or a picture of Jesus holding children. Our church ministry should always include children, to feed them and teach them, but especially to love them and take care of their health needs. Parents who are abusive do not know about God and do not understand God’s law about abortion. Good Christian parenting should include teaching about the Bible and how to pray and about God’s love for us. We should also set a good example. Our children are a gift from God. Lindsey Mitchell gave the children’s sermon on prayer. She asked, “What is prayer? Whom do we talk to when we pray, and what do we pray about?” Answers were “Sick people, food, animals and family”. Lindsey gave them a paper hand with fingers. On each finger they could pray for Mom, Dad, brother, sister and friends. We can also pray when we take a test at school, when our feelings are hurt or when we hurt someone else’s feelings. Philippians 4:6 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Steve and Brenda Ensor provided special music. Michael Hammond prayed a piano solo, “What a Friend we Have in Jesus”, for the personal worship moment.

Santa Fe Christian Church

Pastor Kenny Sharp

The Paris Coyotes football team were special guests for the Sunday morning church service following donuts and drinks in the fellowship hall. Pastor Kenny Sharp’s sermon, “Going All Out” (scripture text 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 and Hebrews 12:1-3), compared how all athletes are just like Christians. You must be prepared at all times either by playing against another team or Satan. Athletes become good players when they have worked hard just like Christians who read, read and read the Bible to help in their daily lives. Jesus is the Christian’s quarterback. When you have Jesus Christ as your savior, you cannot be pushed around -- you must stand firm. All athletes want to win -- just like Christians will win with Jesus on their side. He finished the race for us!! Serving at the Lord’s Table were Bob Conley, Wayne Conley, Charles Thomas, Dan Sharp, Don Wilkerson and Jim Hurst. Door greeters for the morning were Wayne & Martha Conley. Dawn Peak started her children’s sermon by asking them if they knew what SPECTACULAR meant. She told the children that the Paris Coyotes football team may become “spectacular” and be asked to play for the MU Tigers!! They are again like Christians -- must take care of their bodies, exercise and take care of each other. Just like God cares about each and everyone of us. Ashley (Sam) Kendrick assisted by Karen Conley taught the children’s ministry. Prayer requests were for Jo Reynolds’ father, Jo Reynolds’ co-worker’s husband, Luke Olivas, James A. Booth, Josh Dye family, Kim Black family, Paris school district’s students as well as all students, Madeline St. Clair, Laura Garner, Vicki Brown, Becca and Madison Spires’ grandfather and Keith Woodhurst.

What Is a Tranfer? By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

Over time, you might find that the IRA investment choices that made sense when you opened the account no longer work for you. You may want to move to a different type of investment, choose an investment that better fits your current needs and circumstances, or move your account to another fund or financial institution to keep more of your retirement and financial assets together. The process of moving funds between IRAs is known as a transfer. Generally, a transfer applies to IRAs of the same type: moving funds from an existing Roth IRA to another Roth IRA, or an existing Traditional IRA to another Traditional IRA. You can also transfer funds from a SEP IRA to a Traditional IRA or a SIMPLE IRA to a Traditional IRA, as long as you have had the SIMPLE IRA for at least two years. (A transfer from a Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA is known a conversion, and different rules apply.) The process is simple. First, choose the account you want to transfer IRA funds to. It may be an IRA that you already have, or it may be a new one. Then, tell the new company that you will be adding funds from an existing IRA, and give them the account details. The two companies will handle the transfer for you. A transfer is not considered to be a withdrawal for tax purposes, so there will be no reporting to the IRS and no funds withheld. Some people are nervous about setting up a retirement account because they are afraid that they will make the wrong investment choices. The transfer privilege gives you peace of mind; if your investment needs change, you can move your IRA with ease.

New Monroe County Republican Central Committee, left to right, Chairman David Shively, Vice Chairman Phyllis Campbell, Secretary Pat Kendrick and Treasurer Cyril Penner. APPEAL PHOTO

Republican Central Committee... Continued from front pointed out that voting by electronic means was also not against any by-law. So with the Staggs not voting at this time, nominees were taken from the floor. Both Shively and Ron Staggs were nominated for chairman. After votes were tallied there was a 3-3 tie. Shively informed the group that the next step was a secret ballot, which also remained 3-3. Staggs and Shively has a mild disagreement over whether the chairman had a vote and if not then he won 3-2. Shively informed Staggs that Robert’s Rules of order allows for the vote of the Interim Chairman. With the vote deadlocked, Shively made a motion to suspend the rules and allow the agenda to be changed. After a second of the motion it was approved 5-1. With the rules suspended, and the Staggs protesting the vote, Shively made a motion to seat Cyril and Sharon Penner in their respective township positions. The Penners were approved unanimously. Also added to townships were John McClellan in Monroe Township and Sam Smith in Indian Creek Township. After these individuals were approved the agenda returned to

electing a chairman. Again Staggs and Shively were nominated but this time, with the Staggs again not allowed to vote by electronic means, Shively was elected chairman with a 5-4 vote. Ron Staggs immediately protested the vote, as did a couple of meeting officials. Shively made a motion to accept what had been accomplished so far. After a second, the officials voted 8-0 in agreement. ‘We will

now move forward,” said Shively. In short order the group elected Phyllis Campbell Vice-Chairman; Pat Kendrick, Secretary; and Cyril Penner, Treasurer. It was noted that Pat Kendrick was the first new secretary for the committee since 1984 as Ann Kuntz had held the position for 28 years. The group set their next meeting for Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 6:30 p.m.

2012 Paris Coyotes Football Cheerleading Golf Softball

2012 Madison Panthers Baseball Softball

2012 Paris Coyotes return skilled players at many important positions Both coaches and players alike were disappointed when the Paris R-II Coyote season ended last season without a run into the Missouri playoff system. This season second year head coach Gary Crusha and his players are looking to correct that and advance further in the new Missouri playoff system (see related article in this section). This season the Coyotes return skilled players at important positions. Moving from running back to quarterback is senior Steven Hayhurst who will generate a large portion of the Coyote offense with both his arm and his legs as he directs the Coyote attack. According to Coach Crusha, the Coyotes will run more of a spread offense this season rather than the Power I used last season. Running behind Hayhurst in the formation will be fullback Zac Baladenski, who is returning from a knee injury that sidelined him last season. Baladenski’s size and speed coupled with returning receivers Sophomore Wide Receiver Slater Stone and Senior Tight End

Trae Hammond will help the Coyotes run their new spread offense. Stone has remarkable hands and could be one of Hayhurst’s favorite downfield targets as he runs both excellent short routes but then can turn on the jets and burn defenders deep also. Hammond is a double threat as he is a solid tight end with good hands who is also a great blocker to help open holes for his quarterback and running backs. Joining these three on offense will be Seniors Justin Wolfe and newcomer Zane Vaughn who both will fit into the new offense with Wolfe filling both running back and receiver spots while Vaughn will give the Coyotes multi receiver weapons. Returning linemen Junior Cole Berrey and Sophomore August Hayhurst anchor the offensive line along with Senior John DeOrnellis. On the defensive side of the ball the Coyotes return starters Hayhurst, Stone, Hammond, DeOrnellis and Baladenski. Joining these talented starters will be junior varsity standouts Brody Lehenbauer, Corey Court, Justin Wolfe

and Branden Hancock. A newcomer to the defensive line will be Junior Alan Haynes who will force defenders to move him out of the way to the quarterback. Coach Crusha noted that the team’s strength on defense would be their overall athleticism and their aggressiveness. The blue and white Coyotes look to better last year’s 4-6 record with returning lettermen starter Steven Hayhurst (all Conference, All District), starter Trae Hammond, starter Slater Stone, starter Zac Baladenski, starter Cole Berry, starter August Hayhurst, John DeOrnellis, Corey Court, Brody Lehenbauer, Chance Wheelan and Shawn Basnett.

Seniors are the backbone of any team 2012 area seniors by respective team

Senior leadership is important to any team but most importantly in can have a big effect on high athletics. Seniors can leave their imprint upon the local sports landscape while they are in high school. They can also lead their teams not only through their own

skills but by the example that they set and the work ethic that they have. These intangibles are important to the chemistry and attitude of any team whether it be football, softball, baseball or golf.

Scenes from the 2012 South Shelby Jamboree

Senior leadership can carry a team that is not as athletic or talented as another team to a victory. A lack of the same leadership can send a more talented team on to defeat. We are lucky in the local area to have a wealth of talented seniors that carry on their team’s traditions. These include: Paris Coyotes John Stahlschmidt, John DeOrnellis, Austin Wilkerson, Zane Vaughn, Seth Duncan, Chance Wheelan, Steven Hayhurst, Trae Hammond, Justin Wolfe and

Monroe County Appeal, Paris, Mo. •

Varsity & Junior Varsity Sports

Success this season for the 2012 Paris R-II Lady Coyotes seems to be a simple one for 11th year coach Rick Reading, “everybody needs to contribute for us to be successful. Mistakes at the wrong time hurt us last year. This year we have to erase those problems.” Coach Reading leads his team on to the field ably assisted by Coach Sara Watson. This year’s Lady Coyotes look to better their 9-14 record from the past season with returning letter winners All Conference and All District player Kayla Langerud, All Conference and All District Payton Gruber, Jill Nobis, Sirena Bell and Haley Fredrick. Starters lost to graduation were first baseman Heather DeOrnellis and second baseman Jaelyn Bergman. The 2012 blue and white Lady Coyotes team strengths include – defense, strong pitcher/catcher combo, speed and the ability to get on base. “Our team goals include wining the conference as we did in 2010,” said Coach reading. “We had our chances last year and just couldn’t come up with big wins when it counted.” Coach Reading considers Paris, Salisbury, Westran and Marceline all having chances to capture that conference title. Coach Reading has had the same coaching philosophy for years – play hard, never quit, have a good attitude, demand respect and lead by example. “This could be a great year,” said Coach Reading. “We have all the combinations for that to occur. Girls must decide how far they want to go. Paris started the season hosting South Shelby on Wednesday, Aug. 22 and ends it at Marion County on Tuesday, Oct. 2. The Lady Coyotes will host South Shelby, VanFar, North Shelby, Knox County, Slater, Fayette, and Marceline. The

New district football plan includes eight team district and point plan the higher-seeded teams (1-2) will get byes in the district tournament if necessary. This format would more closely resemble the district championships in all of our other team sports. If the current start date is kept in place, the playoff games will still follow the WednesdayMonday-Saturday format. Another unique nuance to this format is the financial split of the Week 10 game. Because each school will only have the ability to schedule games one through nine, its schedule may be five home and four away games or four home and five away games. In Week 10 the higher seed will host the game (#1 seed would host #8 seed, #2 seed would host #7 seed, etc.). To make Week 10 financially equitable to all schools, the gate receipts (minus expenses) will be split 60/40, with the host team receiving 60% of the gate and the visiting team receiving 40% of the gate. The classification process will remain the same, with the largest 32 schools based on enrollment

At its April Board Meeting, the Missouri State High School Activities Association Board of Directors unanimously voted for a new football playoff format for the 2012 football season. The new format will create a nine-game regular season with schools scheduling all nine of these games. The 10th week will be the beginning of the District Championships. Teams will be placed into districts comprised of eight teams and seeded by a point system over the nine-game regular season. The third game of the championship series would be the district championship game, eight district champions and eight district runner-ups being crowned. The district champions would then advance to the quarterfinals of the state series. There shall be two districts in 8-Man, four districts in Class 6, and eight districts each in Classes 1-5. Schools are grouped in districts based on geographical location. Classes 1-4 and Class 6 will consist of eight teams. Class 5 and 8-man will be based on the number of teams in the region and

Paris Lady Coyotes look to experience to win in 2012

It dies not seem possible that the Paris Lady Coyote Golf Team can improve on last year’s 12-1 match play record but they will definitely try. The team also finished second in the Paris tournament, third in the Westran tournament and second in the Salisbury tournament. The team broke three records last year for low team score: 185, which was seven strokes better than the record they set the year before. Returning letter winners include Meaghan Dye, Shelby DeTienne and Kaidy Heitmeyer. “We have 14 girls playing of which four are seniors that have played for four years and another senior has played for two years,” said 7th year Head Coach Jeremy Skinner. “We have a good group of first year players that are going to be the strength for the future.” Team goals are easy ones – the Lady Coyotes want to defend their conference title and compete for a district title and they want to send girls to state. “We have a good chance of repeating as conference champs with the girls we have returning,” said Coach Skinner. Coach Skinner always wants to introduce the game of golf to as many students as possible because it is a great game that a lot of kids never get exposed to when they are young.

Panthers have pitcher laden 2012 team

Head Coach Bryant Jones has double duty in this his second season as he is both the softball and baseball head coach. The purple and gold Madison C-3 Panthers take to the fall season field with returning lettermen Blake Hultz, All Conference and All District player Blake Brown, Blaine Love, Tyler Bennett and Jacob Wandrey. Last year’s Panthers finished the season 9-10 (3-3 in C.A.C. Conference play) and won a district game versus Silex before falling to Cairo in the district semi game. Coach Jones’ players to watch include pitcher and shortstop Blake Brown; infielder and centerfielder Blake Hultz; shortstop and pitcher Tyler Bennett; catcher Blaine Love; and first baseman and third baseman Jacob Wandrey. “This season we have three pitchers who can give us quality innings on the mound,” said Coach Jones. “Bradley Pierce and Blaine Love are just starting to develop and we hope they can supplement our rotation led by Blake Brown, Tyler Bennett and Jacob Wandrey.”

Coach Jones noted that last fall Madison went 6-6 (.500 overall) and was 3-3 in the C.A.C. “If we could finish this fall with that same success considering what we graduated and our inexperience we would be very excited,” said Coach Jones. The Panthers lost to graduation All District and Conference Jacob Youse; All Conference Codey Hendren; All Conference and All District Tylor Milner, Shawn Boillot, Clay Warren and Gavyn Hinten. Coach Jones expects Cairo, New Franklin and Sturgeon to be the class of the conference and compete for the title with Sturgeon his pick to wimn it all coming off a final four finish. Coach Jones has a simple coaching philosophy, “it is simple, if you want to be competitive you have to pitch and play good defense. If you can do those things consistently you’ll have a consistent chance to win.” Madison begins play at Cairo on Thursday, Aug. 23 and visits New Franklin, Glasgow, Higbee
