Women have always played a large role in agriculture. They drive tractors and combines, haul grain, cook supper, and take care of their families. In recent years, women are becoming more involved in the business operations of the farm. Farm women have diverse backgrounds, some which prepare women well for the responsibilities of running a farm business. Other farm women come into farming operations by way of marrying men who happen to be farmers, or by means of their spouse or family members dying and leaving them in charge. Being married to a farmer or being a woman in a male dominated business has its challenges. Some women have learned to handle this responsibility very well and are valuable mentors to women who have not had it so easy. Annie’s Project is an educational program that was created specifically for farm women. Topics include: risk management, record keeping software, ownership of property, insurance, financial statements, spreadsheets, writing a business plan, estate planning, leases, communication issues,

personality traits, and marketing. The course will be taught by University of Missouri Extension personnel and also include guest speakers. Annie’s Project provides farm women with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to make informed risk management decisions regarding their farm business operations. This will enable farm women to become better managers, and in turn, increase the viability of their farming operation. It also gives farm women an opportunity to network and interact with other women involved in agriculture. Farm women find answers, strength, and friendship, in Annie’s Project. University of Missouri Extension is offering Annie’s Project beginning Wednesday, Nov. 7. The deadline to enroll is Friday, Nov. 2. The course is targeted towards farm women, women landowners and new farmers. The course includes six evening classes (Nov. 7, 14, 28, and Dec. 5, 12, 19.). The location for this course is the Louisiana High School, in Louisiana. Continued to page 19

October. In observance of Red Ribbon Week, Paris R-II Secondary Counselor Lisa Youse scheduled a Red Ribbon Assembly for junior high and high school students on Tuesday, Oct. 23. Besides students and staff, attending the assembly were Parole and Probation Officer Vickie Ross and Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy and D.A.R.E.Officer Corporal Sue Walker. Also on hand were Travis, Tiffany and Kurtis to tell their individual stories of drug and alcohol use and misuse. “Drinking slowly led me to other things,” said Travis during his presentation to the students. “If I can help you by telling you what happened to me – then that is good.” The choice is yours to make,” added Travis in closing. “I started using drugs in high school,” said the next speaker – Tiffany. “Drugs convince you that what you are doing is the

right thing to do,” added Tiffany, a mother who had lost her children because of her drug use. “The disease of addiction allows you to think that you can stop anytime and pick up a different drug and that in itself is not bad – but this is false.” “If you are using there is a way to stop,” explained Tiffany. “It is important to me to talk to you to try to help you understand you don’t have to do drugs – you have choices!” The last speaker was 2008 Paris R-II graduate Kurtis Little. Little explained that he had an accident late at night while under the influence of alcohol. “I couldn’t call it an accident, I would call it stupidity,” said Little to the students. Little explained his severe injuries from the accident and the Continued to page 9

For President - My Decision and Why

One of the things that I will miss about no longer owning the “Appeal” is preparing for and making endorsements of candidates for office in election years. Over those past twenty years I have most often endorsed solid conservative Republicans in primary races but more moderate Democrats in the General elections. This became almost routine for a social conservative nominal Democrat as our Republican friends veered more vigorously right in these past years and elections and have most recently ousted the more moderate of their officeholders. In the national and federal elections my studied opinion is somewhat changed but the end result not much different from prior years. We picked Mitt Romney as our choice from among the rather slim pickings of the Republican primary candidates on his experience as Governor. We were and are still not convinced that either Mr. Obama or Mr. Romney are the best our country has to offer. And while some of Mr. Obama’s appointments and domestic decisions were suspect, his plans for the future are more plausible and at least believable. I believe both gentlemen are decent and good individuals and family men and personally honest outside the political arena. Come November 6, I will cast a not so enthusiastic vote for President Obama but a resounding no confidence no vote for Governor Romney. Mr. Romney has become a political chameleon, changing colors and opinions with the political background he finds himself in at the time. His refusal to provide additional tax information, to reveal what exactly he will cut in government programs and his failure to let Fido ride inside the car are but glimpses of the annoying arrogance we find so often in the very wealthy. It is also time to get out of the name recognition business in politics and recognize that there is often a great degree of difference in character and ability between bearers of the same name be they Romneys, Bushs, Kennedys, Blunts or Carnahans. And finally, I believe I would vote for President Obama simply to show my displeasure with the political strategy of Republicans in Congress who chose intransigence and non-cooperation solely to deny this President a second term to the detriment of their country and many of their constituents.

Just Ask Dave...

by David Eales Publisher/Editor Voting - The cosponsored Meet The Candidates was an unqualified success. There were about 40 residents in attendance who heard impassioned speeches from the local candidates about why they should vote for them in the upcoming General Election. On hand were 40th David Eales District opponents Paul Quinn and Jm Hansen. Also in attendance were Monroe County Eastern District Commissioner candidates Incumbent Mike Whelan and challenger David Trainor The evening’s event was sponsored by the Monroe County Appeal and the Paris Area Chamber of Commerce. As master of ceremonies it was my assignment to make sure the candidates kept on time and to set up, take down and of course serve refreshments. However, during the event it was noted that it is not important who you vote for as much as it is important that ‘you do’ vote. Elections can be won and lost by voter turnout. In the 70’s a presidential candidate had a really large lead early. My media brethren declared him the winner even before the polls closed in California and on the Wet Coast. This early call left many California voters hesitant to go to the polls when voting for someone already winning. In turn, local candidates expecting these votes were left high and dry and some actually lost the election. Does your vote count? Of course it does - everyone’s vote counts Voting is one of the cornerstones of our American freedoms. Many nations expound on the “one person - one vote” philosophy but we as Americans actually live it every day. How can you help? First and foremost - vote, then if you can help others. Does someone need a ride? Does another need their small child watched for the time it takes to run to the polling place? You can help in so many ways and it makes absolutely no difference what party you support. For additional ideas and thoughts on ways to help contact the local party committee chairmen (Democrat Committee Chairman Becky Vanlandingham; Republican Committee Chairman David Shively) Remember exercise is very important, and if you only get to exercise once this year do it Tuesday, Nov. 6 and exercise your right to vote! Have a great week!

All yesteryears are reprinted in the exact text of the original issue

90 Years Ago Oct. 20, 1922 Six cases of diphtheria have been quarantined in and near Paris by Drs. Moss and Ragsdale, county health officers. The cases are mild however. Seventy-five tons of hay were burned recently on the farm of J. E. Ely, near Center, when lightening struck the barn where it was stored. On the same day a barn on the Leo Larson farm near Perry, was struck, a very fine driving mare perishing in the flames, together with some hay and grain. The test well for oil and gas over near Center has reached a depth of 480 feet. Promoters are claiming that the sands through which the drill is now passing give good indications of oil. Monroe county is among the first ten counties of the state in point of numbers of her boys and girls who attending the University of Missouri at Columbia. Monroe County may never have to go through another strike of railroad shopmen, such as caused the curtailment of service recently. Both Katy and Bulington railroads have signed agreements with their shopmen wherein the shopmen waive their right to strike and the owners promise not to litigate, but to let the railroad labor board decide disputes.

75 Years Ago Oct. 28, 1937

Turkey hens and gobblers, fatter than their ancestors of the 1936 holiday season, await this year’s Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Monroe county druggist and doctors say their patrons need feel no uneasiness over a nationwide race with death the Government is staging. The object of the frantic effort is to recover and destroy 700 bottles, mostly pints, of a new liquid medicine, named elixir of sulphanilamide, which has already caused 39 verified deaths. An effort is being made this week to organize and make it possible for children at the school building who bring cold lunches now to have hot lunches hereafter. The project would be in charge of a WPA worker, but the community must first make available necessary stoves, tables, lines, cooking utensils and dishes. The hot soups, hot milk, hot chocolate or other things served would be provided at a very low minimum cost to the children, who would also be allowed to bring raw products from home and get credit for them on their hot servings. Mrs. Maybel Shaner, sewing room supervisor at Pars, is attempting to raise the money for the project through local lodges, clubs and other organizations. The court agreed to allow Sheriff Wilkes 75 cents per day per person for the board of prisoners in the county jail.

50 Years Ago Oct. 25, 1962

New postal rates, to go into effect at varying periods, were signed into law by President Kennedy during the last week. Under terms if the postal increases first class mail goes to five cents, air mail eight cents, effective January 7. Bricklayers and other workmen this week were rapidly constructing the brick walls and steel work of the new high school building being constructed for the Paris Reorganized district. Practically all of the underground work, including foundations and the laying of pipes and lines of other types, has already been completed. Tuesday night, October 30, children of Paris will devote their Halloween found to a constructive purpose. They will wear mask of witches and goblins, skeletons and spacemen to erase the more fearful masks of hunger and disease from the faces of millions of the world’s needy children whose hope rests with UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund. The two story house on the former Lem Searcy place east if Goss and a cabin on the Bob Clairy place a just east of it, both near the Wabash railroad, were destroyed by fire of unknown origin last Thursday afternoon, within two hours of each other. Circumstances led some people to believe that perhaps both fires were set by an arsonist who was

traveling along the railroad, since the Clairy place was far from the and inaccessible at the time except on foot.

25 Years Ago Oct. 29, 1987

In the largest single drug bust ever made in Monroe County, law enforcement officials destroyed over three tons of marijuana on a farm near Paris last Friday. The pot was estimated to be worth more than $4 million. For years, Monroe County has boasted that within its borders lie more miles of streams and rivers than any other county in the state. While the statement was meant to emphasize the boundless water recreation opportunities in Monroe County, it also means that the county undoubtedly also has more than its share of bridges crossing those rivers and streams. Subsequently, the result is a maintenance nightmare for the Monroe County Road and Bridge Department which has 124 bridges over 20 feet long and at least that many more shorter structures to keep safe and operable for local traffic. Dick Noel is heading the planning for the promotion ands aid the parade will feature the arrival of Santa Claus and the light of the new Christmas decorations— both for the first time of the year. The Chamber spearhead a drive to raise funds to purchase new Christmas decorations for downtown Paris, netting over $5,000.

Just a Thought

by Lisa Talton

Chapter One: WOW! I’m Pregnant

The news that can evoke different emotions for different people. Some may be excited, some surprised, some worried and some even unhappy. But one thing is the same in every situation and that is your life is about to change. You are about to embark on a journey that is like no other. A journey that will allow you to see and be a part of a miracle-the birth of your baby. This miracle has been given to you because you are the exact mother he or she needs in order to fulfill the life God has for him or her. Of course you are going to make mistakes-a lot of them-but God is so much bigger than any mistake we can make. He has a purpose and a plan for your child so it is very important to get as close as you can to Him so He can guide you through your journey. He has been my solid rock and foundation through many good and bad times in my walk as a mother. I know I could not have gotten through without him as my friend, coach, mentor, counselor and the most important FATHER. He will be the same for you if you allow him to. You’re Craving What???: With my first pregnancy I tried to do everything according to the word of the book What To Do and What Not To Do When Having a Baby. I did not drink soda or eat chocolate or consume any other product that had caffeine in it because I was told that it was not good for the baby. I did not think I had any weird food cravings but my husband said I did but he can’t think of what they were. It is funny how soon we forget things. I refer to lapses in my memory or air head like moments to “mommy moments”. But back

to the topic at hand-these mommy moments definitely include moments when I get off track. Okay, with my second child I did the exact opposite of my first. I was not health conscious and I did not get even one eighth of the exercise I got with my first. My constant food craving was BIG MACS. I did not even eat beef but let me tell you I sure did consume a whole lot of cows while I was pregnant with my second. And because of all this consumption I felt like a cow when I was pregnant and even after I gave birth. From my personal experience, I think when I was more health conscious I had an easier time getting back into shape. I am still carrying quite a chunk of my second pregnancy around with me.(But my son is definitely worth the extra weight) When I was pregnant with my twins I did not have much of an appetite. I could eat peanut butter toast and have a glass of milk for each meal and be more than satisfied. Cravings Of Other Mommies: *”When I was pregnant with my daughter I constantly craved candy bars. My husband would go to the convenience store and buy me not one, not two but three candy bars and I would eat all three of them in one sitting.” ( Note to the readers-This woman is one of those people-you know who I’m talking about-they have the baby and two weeks later look like they never gave birth. In all fairness this mother was and still is an avid exerciser. You go girl!!) * “I craved radishes. Before I got pregnant I never touched a radish let alone put one in my mouth but boy oh boy did I eat them by the dozen when I was pregnant. I would slice one, salt one and then eat one. Then slice another, salt another and eat another. This would go on and on until the whole bag was gone.”

Monroe County Service Company

The Monroe County Farm Bureau Service Company (as it was called then) was incorporated in January of 1933. When it first opened, the building was located in the rear of the Temple Stevens grocery store on Caldwell Street. Sometime between 1933 and 1937, the office moved to the corner of Monroe and Washington where the social services building is now. In 1937, the company moved once again to the current location of the health department, just east of the courthouse. The current office building (built in 1982) is located at 425 N. Main Street and the name of the company was changed at that time to Monroe County Service Company (more commonly called Monroe County Co-op). In 1992, the company expanded with the purchase of the H.P. Noel building at 209 N. Washington Street to offer mainly seeds at this location. In 1993, Monroe County Co-op purchased the agriculture service buildings on Business Highway 24 from Callis & Turner to further expand their agricultural business. The Business Highway 24 location offers primarily feed, minerals, grinding and mixing feed and anhydrous ammonia and farm chemicals spraying. Whether you have cows, sheep, chickens, dogs, cats, birds, or even deer, this location is your stop for feed for all farm, domestic, and wild animals. Grain purchasing and storage is also available. This location offers bulk feed delivery to the farm. Grain and feed handling equipment is also available. To contact this branch of the Monroe County Service Company, call 660-327-4195. The seed branch of the company at the Washington Street location is mostly storage at this time but they still offer seed cleaning for local farmers here. To contact this location, call 660-327-4491. The majority of the seed business is at the 425 N. Main Street location. Agricultural seeds, various grasses, soybeans and hybrid seed corn are available here.

During the holidays, parking lots at malls and supermarkets are packed, increasing the possibility of a fender bender. If you hit, scrape or otherwise damage a parked car—or if you’re the victim of such an accident—don’t panic. Here are some steps you can take: IF YOU’RE THE DRIVER Own up. Don’t drive away—if another customer or a surveillance camera spots you, you could be punished for a hit-and-run. Track down the other car’s owner. Head into the store and speak to someone at the customer service desk. Describe the car to the employee, and have him or her announce it over the store’s loudspeaker. Leave a note. If you’re unable to find the other driver, jot down basic information—your name, phone number and a brief explanation of the accident—and place it in a secure spot on the car. Write down the license plate number and take a photo of the damage if you have a camera with you. Call the police. Depending on how extensive the damage is, you may want to involve the police. They’ll document the accident and they can help you find the other car’s owner. IF YOU’RE THE VICTIM Contact your State Farm® agent. Let him or her know what happened as soon as possible. Your agent will help you determine the next steps. Record evidence. Take pictures of the damage with your phone or a camera, if you have one on hand. Take thorough notes. If the other driver is still around, jot down his or her name, address, phone number, driver’s license number and insurance company. Gather as much information as possible. Get backup. Ask others in the parking lot if they witnessed anything. Also head back into the store and find out if they have security camera footage you can check. IF YOU’RE THE WITNESS Provide assistance. If the offending driver is gone, help the other driver document the damage. Give the driver your contact information, in case his or her insurance agent or the police need to contact you for further comment.

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

The South Fork Presbyterian Church Sunday, Oct. 21 service began with Patti Grimmett playing “Praise to the Lord” for the prelude followed by Debbie Carey leading the hymns “The Solid Rock”, “’Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus”, and “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.” Pastor John lead the responsive reading based on Psalm 71. Patti announced that Addicts Victorious meets at 2:00 each Sunday afternoon at Paris Presbyterian Church. All were reminded about the hayride, bonfire and wiener roast at the Grimmett’s farm that afternoon. The joy of the morning was the Kyle Culbertson wedding. Prayer requests are for Sharon Switzer, Bill and Billie Cearley, Carol Billett, Susie McGee’s mom and Debbie’s sister-in-law, Mary Browning. The special music for the morning was “Be Thou My Vison” sung by John and Patti with John accompanying on the guitar. Pastor John’s message, “Jesus Saves!”, was based on the scripture Isaiah 58: 1-9. What do we do when things go wrong....when bad things happen? Isaiah is writing to people in big trouble. The Lord says bad things are going to happen because you have made some bad choices. Whenever people make poor decisions God says there are consequences. Isaiah tells the people if they don’t quit making bad choices worse things are going to happen but they can turn things around if they come to Jesus. All the little things you do for God does not change anything because we go back to doing things the way we did before. You need to trust in God to help you with your problems instead of trying to work things out on your own. People need the Lord. From the cross Jesus is saying here I am, I can help you. You just need to accept the gift of grace and salvation from Jesus Christ. When you try to do it all alone you will fail. When you suffer, the Lord will be with you and go step by step with you through the valley of dark shadows. He will lead you like a shepherd. Trust in the Lord. In the midst of suffering there are blessings and miracles. God is here to help us and to guide us. If we trust in him he will come, he always has and he always will. The offering was taken by Kaylee as Patti played “For the Beauty of the Earth.” Pastor John gave the benediction followed by the “Three-Fold Amen” as the response. Patti concluded the service with the postlude, “The Glory of God in Nature.” All are welcome to worship at South Fork Presbyterian Church at 9 a.m., each Sunday. And he that sits upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Revelation 21:5

Red Ribbon... Continued from front cost of his medical care to the attentive students. “Think about drinking and driving,” said Little to the students. “It is definitely not worth it!” Enrique (Kiki) Camarena was a Drug Enforcement Administration Agent who was tortured and killed in Mexico in 1985. Camarena worked his way through college, served in the Marines and became a police officer. When he decided to join the US Drug Enforcement Administration, his mother tried to talk him out of it. “I’m only one person”, he told her, “but I want to make a difference.” The DEA sent Camarena to work undercover in Mexico, investigating a major drug cartel believed to include officers in the Mexican army, police and gov-


ernment. On Feb. 7, 1985, the 37-year-old Camarena left his office to meet his wife for lunch. Five men appeared at the agent’s side and shoved him in a car. One month later, Camarena’s body was found. He had been tortured to death. In honor of Camarena’s memory and his battle against illegal drugs, friends and neighbors began to wear red badges of satin. Parents, sick of the destruction of alcohol and other drugs, had begun forming coalitions. Some of these new coalitions took Camarena as their model and embraced his belief that one person can make a difference. These coalitions also adopted the symbol of Camarena’s memory, the red ribbon.

Monroe County 4-H Club Presentations

Aly Francis Once again, I had a really great year with my 4H sheep project. My Southdowns did super this summer at the shows we attended. I also got to see some of my old friends that I have made at shows from the past years. I also made a few new friends along the way. It was such a nice winter to have baby lambs with all of the warm temperatures. I didn’t lose any babies to freezing weather and they got a really good start. Most of the lambs were eating creep feed by the time they were just two weeks old. That helped them to start growing quickly. Early growth is very important my Dad says if you want the lambs to be big enough to show when it comes time for the fairs. Our family always enjoys the road trips to sheep shows. Mom says we just can’t go anywhere without having the livestock trailer hooked on to the truck. Our first outing was to the National Dorset Show and Sale in Springfield, Illinois the first weekend in April. My brother Britton had to pick up a Dorset ewe lamb that some people brought to him from Virginia. I had a good time at the event, because I got to participate in a judging contest that they had. They had three classes of ewe lambs. At the Dorset association meeting on Saturday evening they announced the contest winners and I won my age division and a $100 certificate for the purchase of a lamb The second big outing for the year was our trip to the

All American Junior Show in Des Moines, Iowa during the July 4th weekend. The All American is really my favorite. The first day we got to go to a water park and it was so much fun because it was so hot. We had to be really careful that weekend to keep the sheep cool with the fans It was miserably hot for sheep and people. The hot weather ended just in time for us to go to the Missouri State Fair. It was a great trip. The 4H show was on the first Saturday morning. Much to my surprise, my February ewe lamb that we raised on our farm won her class and then went on to win the Champion 4H ewe for the show. Needless to say, I was so excited because that was my first big win with a lamb I had raised all on my own. The second hi-lite for the State Fair was during the Lead line contest on Sunday. There were five participants in my age division and I was wearing my new magenta and black Pendleton wool skirt and cape. My ewe Daisy had a matching neck band and bow. When the announcer said, “and in second place” and I didn’t hear my name I knew that I had won. Once again, I was really, really excited. It was a lot of fun. So, you can see from my story that I really did have another great year with my 4H sheep project. I love my sheep and all of the fun things that I get to do with my family and friends, even though it does usually mean that we can’t leave home without the trailer in tow.

Monroe County 4-H shines in State Public Speaking

4-H Spirit Award winners, Britany Williams, left, and Trenton Morgan, right. GoGetter Award winners, Hannah Mitchell, middle left, and Brandon Williams. Ryan Breid Hello, I’m Ryan Breid and I live in Paris, Missouri. I’m a second year Clover Kid. I’ve been going to 4-H meetings for 3 years now. The first year I just tagged along with my sister. I haven’t missed a meeting yet. Once again this is another busy year with 4-H. My family decided to get a steer since sissy signed up for a beef project. We named him Brutus. We spent a lot of time with Brutus. I learned he eats a bunch. I picked grass because Brutus would eat grass right out of my hand. Brutus tried to knock me off of the gate several times. He didn’t like my feet on the gate. I was able to go to steer weigh in day and Long Farm Livestock Symposium. I went to camp on Clover Kid day. My mom was there helping in the kitchen. Russell Mitchell picked me to spend the day with him at camp. We had a great time. I made a flower tea cup, noise makers and extension cord. Russell helped me shoot a bow and arrow at camp. Ms. Shelby J. took me for a canoe ride. 4-H camp was fun! I made several projects through the year. They only let me bring three exhibits to the fair. I got three blue ribbons after I told the bus driver lady about my projects at check in. Some of the projects I made were to give away. I made my teacher a pumpkin/pencil holder. At Christmas sissy and I made wrapping paper for Grandma and Grandpa Breid with our pictures on it. Wow, was it hot at the

fair. I took my cat Arson to the Clover Kid show. It was so hot that I had to leave after our turn because my cat got sick. I had never seen a cat pant like a dog. Arson has really long white hair. We did a lot of community service this year. I helped a bunch. The day of the sheep show at Monroe County Fair had to be the hottest day of the year. I got to stay out late because I helped clean up after the sheep show and then again on Friday night after the ham/livestock sale. My job at the barn dinner fundraiser was packing drinks to the table. In my pictures you can see some of the community service I was involved in. I like to help and try my best. I attended an Achievement Day Workshop. Kim, Mendy and Mary helped my family a bunch. We decided that a team demonstration would be a good idea. My mom wasn’t sure sissy and I could do a team demonstration. I learned about collections and that I could have a collections table and do a demonstration with my sissy. We got busy because we had work to do. Thanks to this achievement day I was able to display my monster truck collection and do an Easy No Bake Cookie Demonstration. We kept practicing and made lots of cookies for friends and family. Sissy and I did a great job! We did such a good job they let us do it at the State Fair. I also worked hard on my collection table. Dad helped me make wooden boxes for the table to display my mon-

this project. I also did lots of community service. Part of being a good citizen is helping the community be a better place to live. I do my share by picking up trash by the highway, working scoreboard for sports games, collecting canned food, and spending time in the food booth at the fair. I am always glad to help the 4-H organization that has done so much for me. Leading by example is the best way to lead, and nothing is a better example than serving the community. I recommend this project to everyone. You are never too old or young to learn more about leadership. It is a skill you will use forever that will help you succeed.

I always have the tremendous leadership examples of Charlie, Leslie, Charles, and Kim to look at and learn from. I have a fabulous time ‘at 4-H camp and can’t wait for next year. I learned a lot about leadership and that younger kids really look up and try to emulate the older counselors. I had to watch every move so that if a kid wanted to follow my exact footsteps, I would have no regrets watching them. I really enjoyed 4-H camp as a kid and want to make the same experience I had available for all the members. I can do this by being a counselor and improving leadership through

I would like to thank everyone for all of your support, gifts and prayers. People often ask why I like living in such a small town and I tell them because it’s quiet and I’m close to family.

Thank you so much and please know how much your help has kept us moving forward in this hard time.

All or our love and thanks,
