It’s Relay Time in Monroe County! The 2012 Relay For Life of Monroe County will be held next weekend, Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24, at the Paris Courthouse This year’s theme is “Colors For A Cure.” This annual American Cancer Society signature event begins at 6 p.m., with the Survivor Lap and ends at 6 a.m. the following morning.

The exception to this rule is during the somber and emotional luminary ceremony held at approximately 9 p.m. Then the track is cleared and food sales are shut down while the names of the survivors and those who lost their battle with cancer are read and the luminaries are lighted oneby-one. This year’s schedule of events includes: Joyce Penny will be the 2012 Relay For Life of Monroe County guest speaker. Penny is a four-time cancer survivor and gives a heartfelt, moving story!

Paris Aldermen to take action versus golf carts and 4-wheelers In the past several months there has been an increase in the number of golf carts and all terrain vehicles being operated on streets in the City of Paris. This item was discussed in length at the Paris Board of Aldermen meeting, on Tuesday, June 5. It was noted that numerous complaints have been received and some citizens have expressed concerns with the safety of the drivers and passengers on these vehicles. Sheriff David Hoffman asked the Mayor and Aldermen, “Do we want to keep everything the same that we have and start enforcing the ordinances or do we go forward and begin to issue permits ($15) coupled with an inspection?” Sheriff Hoffman noted that under the current ordinance 4-wheelers have limited use unless the Aldermen added an increased use to a new ordinance. Mayor Jim Buckman noted that the Aldermen had visited this issue a few years

ago. “One of the issues we have is golf carts and motorized wheelchairs going up and down Main Street, which is a state highway” said City Superintendent Phillip Shatzer. “The operation of these types of vehicles on a state highway is prohibited by state statutes and is not regulated by the city.” Superintendent Shatzer explained that in regards to city streets the City of Paris does have ordinances, which address the operation of golf carts and recreational vehicles on city streets. Two of the main provisions of the City Ordinances require the operator of golf carts (low-speed vehicles) and recreational vehicles to possess a valid driver’s license and maintain financial responsibility for the vehicles. The operation of recreational vehicles (4-wheelers) is limited to use by a government entity for official use or for agricultural purposes.

A major fundraising effort is underway in the local area to help raise funds to build a barn adjacent to the 4-H Building, at the Monroe County Fairgrounds. This effort is focused on building “Jacquie’s Barn” in tribute and remembrance to the efforts of Jacquie Stuart, a long-time youth advocate and 4-H Youth Education Assistant with University of Missouri – Columbia Extension, who lost her battle to cancer in January 2012. In the call to arms to help raise money to fulfill this dream two Madison youth have stepped to the forefront and have organized a 5K Run/Walk, “Give Cancer a Run For Its Money” that will take place on Saturday, July 21, in conjunction with the Monroe County Fair. The event will begin with registration at 7:30 a.m., and the walk/race start time is 8:30 a.m. Pre-entry deadline is June 23. Madison C-3 students and Madison 4-H members Lindsey Hendren and Maddison Breid addressed the Paris Board of Alder-

men at their monthly meeting on Tuesday, June 5 to request permission to use the streets of Paris for the event. “We have mapped out the route,” said Ms. Hendren. “All proceeds collected will go to the Jacquie Stuart barn fund,” said Ms. Breid. “The city will provide the barricades for you,” said Superintendent Phillip Shatzer to the organizers. Hendren and Breid gave the aldermen an overview of the event including the route, prizes and time. The organizers noted that prizes would be given to the following: first male runner, first female runner, first female youth runner, first male youth runner, first female walker, first male walker, first female youth walker and first male youth walker. Other prizes will be available. Also a drawing will be held with tickets available for an Everlast bag, salon tanning package, Scholastic book gift set, Abby’s Garden gift, workout glove gift bag and a 50/50 drawing. Road ID sponsors the walk and T-shirts are available. Entry forms can be found in areas businesses in Madison and Paris For more info email

Jacquie Stuart 5K Run/Walk scheduled for county fair

Monroe County Appeal

With a recommendation from Monroe County Sheriff Hoffman, the City of Paris is considering passage of new ordinances concerning the operation of these vehicles (golf carts, 4-wheelers, motorized wheelchairs, etc.) on city streets. However, the requirements to possess a valid driver’s license, maintain financial responsibility and to operate these vehicles on Main Street is not subject to revision, as the city cannot change a state statute – they can make it tougher but not make it less than the current standards. After discussion, the Mayor and Aldermen agreed that to address concerns for the safety of operators and passengers on these vehicles the ordinances currently in place would be enforced immediately. For information on the operation of these vehicles copies of the city ordinances are available at City Office or you can contact the office of the Monroe County Sheriff at 660-327-4060. Complete coverage of the city meeting will be featured in next week’s Monroe County Appeal.

Scott and closing prayer by Pastor Fran Schnarre. The 2012 Hero of Hope will be announced coupled with the distribution of Survivor sashes to all survivors.

Paris R-II high school junior Sara Hunt will perform the National Anthem. Local fan favorite Becky Blackaby will perform followed by a performance by Perry native Brian Yelton. He will perform Christian rock and worship music. At approximately 9 p.m. will be the always-inspiring luminaria service. As always the evening will feature a silent auction. This year the silent auction will end at 9 p.m. prior to the luminary ceremony. There will be theme laps held throughout the evening including a baby lap, a school spirit lap, a costume lap, a patriotic lap and a pajama lap. Activities also to be held throughout the evening include a dunking booth, games, a scavenger hunt, musical squares, the Golden throne and the newly constructed and

always popular “Cancer Jail.” Food booths are a large part of the event and help raise money. This year’s food booths include: Team Lifesavers - Pulled pork sandwiches, Cole Slaw, Lee’s famous tea and popsicles. Gang Green - BBQ hamburgers with Paris Exchange Ice Cream. The Paris National Bank - Fried pickles, fried Oreos and funnel cakes. They will also feature breakfast with biscuits and gravy and bacon sandwiches to be served after midnight.

For additional Relay information and a luminary form see page 11.

According to Monroe County Clerk Sandra Francis her office is in the process of mailing out voter registration cards to all registered voters in the county. The reason for mailing new cards is because of State Redistricting and also a polling place change for Monroe City and Indian Creek Voters. Monroe County is now in Congressional District #6, Legislative Districts #5 and #40 and State Senate District #10. State Representative District #5 runs across the Northern part of the county and takes in parts of Monroe Township, Indian Creek Township, Washington Township, Clay Township and Woodlawn Township with

a total of 1719 registered voters. The remaining 4262 registered voters in the county are in State Representative District #40. Monroe and Indian Creek Voters will be going to a new polling place beginning with the Aug. 7, 2012 Primary Election and all elections thereafter. VFW Post 4240 in Monroe City, located at 301 S. Locust, will be the polling place for Monroe City Precinct # 1, Monroe City Precinct #2, Monroe City Precinct #3 and Indian Creek #4. Anyone with questions about their district or polling place please contact the County Clerk’s Office.

Small Bites - Big Problem?

Does it seem that some of the fun and pleasure is being squeezed out of mealtimes or snacks? The “Biggest Loser” and Dr. Oz are firmly focused on weight loss and the national problem of obesity is drawing continuing and serious attention. The escalating health care costs that all of us who pay health insurance premiums see each year also reminds us of the shared costs of obesity as it is reflected in insurance rates. The latest entries into the fight for healthy food and drink are Disney and the City of New York. Disney is holding out for healthy foods being advertised at its parks and on its communications outlets. New York is going after the big cups of sweetened drinks over 16 ounces at stores and events. In addition more studies have indicated that kids seeing adds for candy and unhealthy foods on television are more likely to eat them as snacks based on the time they spend in front of the set. The likelihood increases with each hour they spend watching programs. Removing those kinds of ads will help but others will have to follow Disney’s example. Some of New York’s other ideas like requiring food vendors to phase out unhealthy fats and for large food chains to post calorie counts have caught on in other locations around the country. There will be those who think that government should not regulate in these areas and private businesses like Disney should mind their own business. But marketing unhealthy drinks and food especially to our kids, can cause us and them real damage in the future. A little less fun and pleasure is a small price we should be willing to pay now to avoid a larger cost later.


Just Ask Dave...

The crack of the bat and a long fly ball… The strike out to end the game… The long pass for a final second winning touchdown… The frenzy of players rushing out to meet a walk off hit… It could be the Cardinals, the Royals, the Rams or Chiefs but in reality the best ticket in town is found at the Monroe County Fairgrounds and on the playing fields and courts of any of our local schools. They do not play for the money, the fame, the flashy cars and clothes – they play for love of the game and to hone their skills to become a better player. And dare I say, to have fun with their David Eales friends. I challenge any adult not to wax a little nostalgic watching some of these pint size t-ball’ers at the fairgrounds crush a drive to deep center only to run the wrong way on the bases much to the chagrin of their coaches who do their best to direct them to the proper base. As they rise in age and experience the games get even more intense, as do the fans. The air becomes electric at a game pitting hometown youth versus hometown youth or even that local rivalry Paris versus Madison - be it pee wee football or high school varsity basketball the stakes are the same - hometown pride. Youth sports gives a fan just what they pay for – solid competition; sportsmanship; team spirit; effort; and usually a very entertaining game, be it a win or a loss. Try it a few times and you may visit the Cardinals and Royals a little less and the local gyms or fields a little more. The players will appreciate the crowds, the parents will appreciate the support and the coaches will think it really is Busch or Kauffman stadiums. On a more somber note, my heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family of Nancy Stone who passed away earlier this week. Nancy was a wealth of historical knowledge bar none. If she did not know something about the history of the county – it maybe was not worth knowing. Nancy was a can-do lady. When you said, “hey Nancy how about a cemetery walk during Fall-In-To Paris?” She said sure and you knew it would happen. I do not think I have met anyone in my life that loved and breathed history like Nancy. When people talked history her eyes lit up and she gave you that wry smile to let you know she was listening. She will be missed but I know wherever she is – they are definitely getting a history lesson. Have a great week…

Just a Thought

by Lisa Talton

What Will We Leave Behind I attended a funeral last weekend that had a huge impact on me. The man who died was only 28 years old. I did not know him very well but I am very close to some of his family members. His death left people asking why. His death left people with a void in their hearts. His death left people with unanswered questions. But after going to the funeral I found out that his death left a lot more than that. It was very obvious after listening to the remarks from family and friends that his life inspired, encouraged and touched many people. He inspired them through his music and his love of God. He encouraged them with his smile, his character and his integrity. He touched them with his humor and big heart. It is sad to have such a remarkable man leave this earth so soon but it is also amazing to see such a young man leave so many positive imprints and inspirations that we who are still here can learn and grow from. We do not know the day or time when we also will leave this world but hopefully we too can leave this world a better place. What imprints are we making in the world? Are we taking time to affect the people around us in a positive way through our words, our actions and our giving? Are we working on mending broken relationships so nothing is left unresolved at least not on our part? Are we allowing our lives, our gifts and our talents to make a difference in this world? No matter who we are or where we have been or what we have done, it is not too late to start today. We each have something special that we can share with oth-

ers. We each have the ability to inspire, encourage and love people we see everyday but we have to make the choice to do so. We need to make the decision that we ARE going to positively affect this world. We need to know that our life DOES matter and that our life WILL make a difference. We need to first see it, then proclaim it, believe it and then live it. Each day we are given is a gift and it is up to us what we do with that gift. At the funeral there were cards after cards after cards read to us about how this young man touched their lives. Their was a plethora of positive comments and compliments given by loved ones. I thought about how wonderful it was to hear them but also about how wonderful it would be if we could give those same kind of positive comments and compliments to the people who are still living in our lives. It’s not that we don’t think those thoughts but sometimes we just don’t get around to telling someone how we feel about them or what they did to encourage or inspire us in a time when we really needed it. I had a lady at my church tell me one time: “Lisa, whenever you get a nudge to speak a kind word, to give a hug, to do a kind deed or to help meet a need-do it.” She spoke those words to me over 15 years ago and I can still remember them like it was yesterday. I took those wise words and applied them to my life. My actions and words may not have always been received but more times than not they were. I believe if we listen close enough and have a willing heart, we all have those nudges and by acting on those nudges we, like the young man that passed away, can leave a positive impact and make a difference in this world.

Nancy Elaine Stone, 65, of Paris, Mo., slipped peacefully away on the evening of Friday, June 8, 2012, at Boone Hospital Center, surrounded by her loving family and friends. Funeral services were at 11 a.m. Tuesday, June 12, at Agnew Funeral Home in Paris, with the Rev. John Grimmett officiating. Visitation was held from 4 to 7 p.m., on Monday, June 11, at the funeral home. Burial was in Walnut Grove Cemetery in Paris. Nancy was born on July 15, 1946, in Pueblo, Colo., the daughter of Dr. Jesse Waydelich and Olivene Slater White. She was married to Edwards Lee Stone on April 20, 1968, in Columbia. He predeceased her on July 24, 2002. Nancy is survived by three children, Mark Edwards (Debora) Stone and Mary Elizabeth Stone of Paris, and Jessica Josephine Yates of Columbia; three grandchildren, Slater Lee Stone of Paris, and Ember Leigh Yates and Satey Alicia Nicole Yates, both of Columbia; and two step-grandchildren, Jessica (Mike) Baker and Shawn Basnett. She was predeceased by her parents; and a brother, Richard Warren White. Nancy’s first love was journalism, and she started down that path at the University of Missouri after high school. There she met Ed, got married and started raising a family. After her children were grown, she got her commercial driver’s license and joined Ed in pursuing his passion of driving a “big rig.” After Ed passed away in 2002, Nancy went back to college and finished her degree, then began pursuing her two passions of journalism and history. She was the editor for the Monroe County history book titled “Monroe County, Missouri, Then and Now, 1831-2006,” and following that, a co-editor for the book, “Monroe City, Missouri Sesquicentennial: 1857-2007.” For several years, she wrote a weekly history column for the Monroe City Lake Gazette, while also researching the pioneer families of Monroe County. Known for her amazing memory, Nancy wrote several books and pamphlets about the cemeteries and pioneer families of Monroe County. Nancy was president of the Monroe County Historical Society and the driving force for establishing the Monroe County Historical Society Research Center in Paris in 2007. She also was a member of the State Historical Society of Missouri, DAR, the Kentucky Historical Society and the Harrodsburg Historical Society in Kentucky. Nancy was a member of the Paris Presbyterian Church. Nancy will be greatly missed by all who knew her, and she leaves a grand legacy in her wake. She was known to many as the “Monroe County History Lady,” and she left us too soon. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Monroe County Historical Society or the Monroe County Cancer Supporters. Editor’s Note: A bright light has gone out in Monroe County. No one knew the history of the county better than Nancy Stone. She taught me who came when, where they went and where they came from. Nancy was the face of the Monroe County Historical Society and will be truly missed. The Historical Society is planning a tribute in next week’s Monroe County Appeal.

Tri-State Housing Summit hammers home message More than 110 helium-filled balloons that filled the stage at Thursday’s Tri-State Housing Summit in Canton helped showcase how home-ownership efforts have paid off. The balloons represented the number of families the not-forprofit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) has put on the road to achieving the American dream of owning a home in the last two years in Northeast Missouri. The summit was hosted by NECAC, Culver-Stockton College, the Two Rivers Regional Council of Governments from Quincy, Ill., the Iowa State University Extension, University of Missouri Extension, the Canton Tourism Commission and NeighborWorks America. The event brought together private businesses, government agencies and other non-profit organizations from Northeast Missouri, West-Central Illinois and Southeast Iowa to highlight successful housing programs and to discuss ideas for putting a roof over the heads of more families. “Some in the national media would have us believe that the dream of home ownership has become a nightmare, and that there isn’t a way to reverse the trends brought on by today’s economic hardship and some past financial undisciplined and unethical acts in the national housing industry,” NECAC President and Chief Executive Officer Don Patrick said in his opening remarks. “The reality is that partnerships which bring together responsible not-for-profit organizations with impeccable private-sector businesses and dedicated government agencies are making a difference, even if they are not making headlines.” Patrick highlighted a few of the families NECAC and it public sector and private sector partners have helped with home-ownership. “As we have already proven, it can be done in towns of 300 people or counties of 300,000 people,” he said. “All it takes is people such as you who are willing to make it happen.” Culver-Stockton President Dick Valentine applauded agencies that have played a role in home ownership efforts. “We are changers,” he said. “We affect change. The work that you do is needed.” Canton Mayor Jarred Phillips emphasized the regional approach. “Together, I’m confident we can achieve great things.” Quincy, Ill., Mayor John Spring touted the city’s “Fix It or Flatten

It” program, which through grants and private donations totaling $7.2 million has cleared 19 formerly blighted properties, rehabilitated 201 structures and led to the creation of more than 300 housing units since 1995. “It’s a start,” Spring said. “We hope to continue to provide this. It’s worth the wait and time to do it.” Stefan Crider of Crider Construction in Quincy outlined his firm’s program to train skilled construction workers and laborers to build the next generation of homes and businesses. Crider said the program “couldn’t have been done without the cooperation” of partners such as the Quincy city government and the Two Rivers Council of Public Officials. Nadia Anderson of Iowa State University discussed sustainable housing design and Stacey Epperson of Next Step in Louisville, Ky., outlined a program that allows notfor-profit agencies to sell modular homes. NECAC is the first agency in Missouri to be part of the program. A legislative outlook was given by State Sen. Brian Munzlinger of Williamstown and State Reps. Paul Quinn of Monroe City, Tom Shively of Shelbyville and Lindell Shumake of Hannibal. Other speakers included Howard Kirchner of the Two Rivers Regional Council of Governments; Corinne Cahill, deputy regional director for the Midwest region of NeighborWorks America; Janine Stephenson and Lindsay Cheek of USDA Rural Development; Bobette Cawthon of the Quincy Realtors Association, Gary Broughton of Century 21 Broughton Team Hannibal and Quincy; Valerie Weir of Coldwell Banker Realty in Quincy; Glenn Griesbaum of Cluster Home Construction Contractors; Rebecca Albert of F & M Bank and Trust of Hannibal and seven other locations; and former Quincy Mayor Chuck Scholz. The event was an outgrowth of the Tri-State Development Summit, a group that has held nine regional conferences since 1996 in an effort to discuss common issues and solutions in 35 Missouri, Illinois and Iowa counties. Housing is one of 10 steering committees that meet and report to the summit. It was held as part of NeighborWorks America Week June 2 to 9, in which communities across the nation are encouraged to bring together non-profit organizations, families and others to renovate and upgrade housing stocks. NECAC is a NeighborWorks chartered member.

The Madison Lioness met on Tuesday, June 5, at Becky’s parking lot to carpool to Kemp’s Restaurant, in Clarence. Lynda Blades and Sara Wright were hostesses. Fourteen members and two guests, Dorothy Carter and Debbie Clarke, attended. Debbie became a new member, and Gail Thomas who attended last month, but was not able to attend this time, also became a new member. After ordering from the menu, President Karen Thomas led the pledge to the flag. The secretary’s report was read by Kathy McCoy, and it was approved with correction. The treasurer’s report given by Karen Forsyth shows a nice balance on hand. There is no need to have a fundraiser until our fall Ham and Bean Dinner. The By-Laws committee, Kathy, Lynda, and Connie Nichols will meet before the next meeting with an outline of a new set. Copies will be distributed for discussion. So far no member has been able to find a set of Lioness by-laws. The Madison Car Show will be held on Saturday, July 7. Lynda moved that we contribute $25 toward a trophy, Connie seconded, and the motion carried. There will also be a parade that

day - probably at 11 a.m. We can meet at the school and line up carrying new banner, possibly with our Scholarship winner and our Girl State winner walking with us. More discussion on this at next meeting. Karla Salmons has red, white, blue hats etc so may dress patriotically. Becky announced that the Demolition Derby is to be held Saturday, June 9. The Secretary will prepare new membership lists to be distributed at the next meeting. Hostesses in July are Linda Breid and Mary Crain, but since Mary is still in rehab, Becky volunteered to fill in

for her. The group signed a card to send to Mary. The traveling prize was won by Karla, and the door prize by Connie. There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned. The Lions Club served a 1 p.m. meal to the family of Jay Meals on Tuesday, May 29. They provided meat trays, slaw, baked beans, and iced tea. Lioness members and several community members brought covered dishes. Lioness members who helped serve were Phyllis Dixon, Kathy McCoy, and Debbie Clarke.

This report is intended to provide you with important information about your drinking water and the efforts made to provide safe drinking water. Please Note: This report is not being mailed but will be available at the City Office or by calling 660-291-5235. What is the source of my water? The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and groundwater wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. The City purchases it’s water from the Clarence Cannon Wholesale Water Commission. The water source for the CCWWC is Mark Twain Lake located in Monroe and Ralls Counties. Mark Twain Lake is a surface water reservoir owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The CCWWC has entered into a contract with the Corps and the state of Missouri for purchase of water storage space in Mark Twain Lake. The reservoir has a total of 16 million gallons of raw water per day available for drinking water purposes. Current production averages approximately 4.0 million gallons per day. Our drinking water is supplied from another water system through a Consecutive Connection (CC). To Find out more about our drinking water sources and additional chemical sampling results, please contact our office at the number provided below.

Source Water Assessment: The Department of Natural Resources conducted a source water assessment to determine the susceptibility of our water source to potential contaminants. This process involved the establishment of source water area delineations for each well or surface water intake and then a contaminant inventory was performed within those delineated areas to assess potential threats to each source. Assessment maps and summary information sheets are available on the internet at To access the maps for your water system you will need the State-assigned identification code, which is printed at the top of this report. The Source Water Inventory Project maps and information sheets provide a foundation upon which a more comprehensive source water protection plan can be developed.

Why are there contaminants in my water? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800426-4791). Contaminants that may be present in source water include: A. Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. B. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. C. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. D. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. E. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the Department of Natural Resources prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Department of Health regulations establish limits from contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.

How might I become actively involved? If you would like to observe the decision making process that affect drinking water quality or if you have any further questions about your drinking water report, please call us at 660-291-5235 to inquire about scheduled meeting or contact persons.

Do I need to take any special precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ trans-plants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infection. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

Special Lead and Cooper If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. MADISON is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several waters, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tab for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791) or at––––

Wear Purple for Elder Abuse Awareness Day - says Senior Center Director Tara Sheffield Wear Purple For Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Take a stand in the fight against elder abuse. The 7th annual World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is Friday, June 15. More than 17, 000 elderly and disabled were victims of abuse, neglect or exploitation in Missouri last year, according to Tim Jackson, regional manager for the Adult Protective Services Department. “Many of these citizens are dependent on others for their care and this makes them susceptible to abusive or neglectful treatment,” said Paris Senior Citizen’s Center Director Tara Sheffield. “Three out of four cases that are seen involve neglect, usually selfneglect.” “The person may live in unsanitary conditions or without heat or running water,” Sheffield added. “Some individuals need assistance with meals and other activities of

daily living.” Tim Jackson noted that the agency’s Adult Protective Services program completed 24, 072 investigations in the year 2011 across the state involving suspected abuse, neglect or exploitation of adults. Of these, 17,548 were confirmed. Caseworkers for Adult Protective Services try to arrange services to reduce or eliminate the abusive or neglectful situation. Competent clients have the right to refuse services, but caseworkers can seek a court order to protect personal health and safety of citizens who are in danger or unable to consent to being helped. Sheffield urges people to report suspected abuse or neglect of an older adult or person with a disability by calling the abuse hot line at 1-800-392-0210. You don’t have to be certain that a situation is abusive or neglectful. It will be looked into. Good faith reports are exempt from liability and are kept confidential. There are 11 things anyone can do to prevent elder abuse

Church NEWS

Paris First Baptist Church

Pr. Wesley Hammond

SUPER summer is here. Many youth are gathering at Hannibal LaGrange College for an exciting week. Be in prayer for the youth in our church joining them. Announcements: Wednesday, June 13, 9-12 noon, “Our Father’s Closet”, clothing ministry; prayer meeting 6:15 p.m.; choir practice, 7 p.m.; Business meeting 8:06 p.m. Community salad supper is on Thursday, June 14, 6:30 p.m., program on antiques; Sunday, July 17, Father’s Day breakfast at 8:30 a.m.; men only will be in the choir during morning worship. Vacation Bible school will begin Monday, June 18 at 8:00 a.m. – registration, continuing through the week until Friday at noon. Ages 3-teen are expected; help is needed to provide lunches for the Bible school team from Moberly. School lunch program is feeding 56 children and needs help through donations of money and assistance with preparation; meeting at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, June 15. Other ministry needs are donations for minute missions, and summer mission trip to Winnipeg, Canada, in August. Regina Ensor gave the children’s program. She showed the children different denominations of coins, i.e., pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. The children learned that a dollar bill, though the same value as 4 quarters, was easier to carry. In the same way, the church has many valuable members and if they pool their efforts to be in one unity, they will be more successful about spreading the word of God. The choir presented special music, “In the Garden”. Cheryl Gholson directed and Kathy Miller accompanied worshipful music throughout the service... The message from God’s word, presented by Reverend Wesley Hammond, was “Life Together: Revealed”, from Acts 2:41-47. Our spiritual life, or lack thereof, can be compared to either a fine tuned auto when we follow the Holy Spirit, or a “Clunker” when we are spiritually dormant and try to solve all our problems without God’s help. Acts 2: 41-47 tells us how to live our lives by devoting ourselves with a glad and sincere heart to learning the teachings of Christ, to fellowshipping with other believers, to help others in need and to continually praise God. Jesus puts our goals in priority.

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

The Sun., June 10 services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Patti Grimmett playing “All Hail, King Jesus/Majesty” followed by Pastor John Grimmett leading in the Call to Worship based on Psalms 51 and 113. Debbie Carey led in song to “All Hail the Power of Jesus Name”, “Come Thou Almighty King”, “Blessed Be the Name”, and “Rejoice the Lord is King”. Announcements were a thank you to Earl Sweitzer and Jim Beuter for the cutting of the fallen tree; and that Pastor John and Patti will be going to Michigan to see Abby who is in the Miss Michigan pageant; prayer for Amanda Grimmett; those starting on the new roof; Martha Hills’ sister Mary Jane and Arthur; Stacy Fuquay; Karen Miller and daughter Tonya; Gabby Sharp; Mary Sue Mitchell; the Ross and Chipman families and for rain and all said the Lord’s Prayer. Pastor John and Patti played guitar and sang “Holy Is the Lord” and “Holy, Holy, Holy”. The message “Who Wears the Crows?” was based on scripture from 1 Samuel 8, where Samuel hears the voice of the Lord, the Lord thundered against the Philistines and Samuel was a judge for his entire life. The people wanted a king as Samuel tries to tell them how a king will rule over them and take one tenth of all their belongings- but they wanted a king anyway. The Lord told Samuel that the people were rebelling against Christ not him; the voice of evil leads people to follow the unwise choices - earthly kings are scoundrels; when you do not follow the Lord your life will fall apart. Trust in God - not a false king! He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords! God will have the final word - Jesus Christ should be first and foremost in your heart...if you make bad choices you will suffer the consequences...Beware of your king! Max Tilt led the offertory as Patti played “See Ye First the Kingdom of God” and all sang the “Doxology”. Patti played “Crown Him with Many Crowns” as all retired in fellowship. Next Sunday services will be led by Gary Rahmeyer. Services are held every Sunday at 9 a.m. and all are invited to hear the word of the Lord. Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord. 1 Samuel 8:6

Santa Fe Christian Church

Pastor Kenny Sharp

“No Partiality” was the title of Pastor Kenny Sharp’s sermon with scripture text taken from James 2:1-13. God has called everyone to treat each other the same -- no partiality. Three points from his sermon were 1) No one should be looked upon as being better than another - show love to all 2) Difference of people who love God does not determine our inheritance of His Kingdom 3) Partiality is a sin - love your neighbor as thyself. Our hope is in Jesus Christ because He shows no favoritism and loves each one of us. Baptism certificates and a cross necklace were presented by Pastor Kenny and Pat Miller to Kenady Johnson, Kayla Baker and Austin Beckman during the church service. Pastor Kenny also presented the children’s sermon. He started by asking the children to name the different lights in the world. He then read to the children from John 8:12 saying that Jesus IS the light of the world - nothing is brighter than He. Ashley & Jared Kendrick taught the children’s ministry. Prayer concerns were requested for the families of Jane Scrogin and Nancy Stone, Holmes family marking a year since Billy stepped into Eternity, Chris & Heidi Riley, Dean Calvin, Zane Miller, Kathy Blakley, John Carver, Gary & Debbie Hodges, Bill Miller, Frankie Ross, Kim Black, Gabby Sharp, Michelle Rodriguez, those attending 4-H camp this week, Dallas Baker’s niece, Jessica, and Madeline St. Clair. Traveling mercies were requested for the Booth family. Praises were for John & Dallas Baker’s family recent fun trip and for Kathy Laird’s grandson, Hunter, placing 1st in Springfield. The crockpot for June will be for Jim Hurst’s sister, Vendetta Locklear. Happy Birthday was sung to Landon Kendrick. Cedar Crest camp applications are to be turned in next Sunday, June 17, to Don Wilkerson. We also need to provide one adult for each five applications. Jill Kendrick gave an update and reminder about the 175th anniversary celebration next year on Sept 15, 2013. Susan Kendrick reported that $299.01 was collected during VBS for World Vision. The church will match that figure to send $600 to Africa to buy mosquito netting for children to help prevent malaria. The SALT Saturday youth group volunteered at the Paris Baptist Church last Friday to help pack bags of vegetables, crackers, etc for the summer lunch program. They will volunteer again this Friday with Susan Kendrick leaving the church at 9:00 and beginning their work at 9:30 for those meeting them at the church. That afternoon the youth group will return to our church and finish packing the food boxes for the Festival of Sharing to meet their goal of 100 boxes. They are in need of cans of Spam and peanut butter to finish off the boxes. If you can donate either item, please have it at the church by Friday at noon. Brian and Jessica Chase will be showing movies on the pad with “Grace Card” being shown this Friday, June 15, around 8:30. Bring a chair, sleeping bag, etc to be comfortable while watching the movie. Popcorn and soda will be served. The admission fee is a package of snack cakes, etc for the youth. Sunday School is held every Sunday morning at 9:30 followed by church service at 10:30. Door greeters for next week will be John and Dallas Baker. The children’s ministry will be taught by Lorie Wohlgemuth who needs an assistant. Bible study is continuing in the book of Romans Wed night at 6:30 (meal at 6:00). Please come and join us.

Mt. Airy Baptist Church

Pastor Robt. Cavanaugh

On June 10, church services began with the pastor giving an opening prayer. Regular church meetings of the week were announced and all were encouraged to attend. Announcements included the Mountianair’s sang at Millers in Paris on June 4 at 7pm., volunteers were thanked for the work at the Northeast Missouri Gospel Music & Fun Fest, volunteers for the Summer Feed a Child Program are needed. We will also collect food items for the Feed a Child Program. At the business meeting the church voted in Billy Arnett and Dan Redington as deacons. This week’s message was titled “Working out your salvation” and came from Phil.2:12-18. A person’s journey is just beginning when salvation is received from Christ. It is a shame many Christians believe all there is left is to wait for Jesus to return. Paul tells us to work out our salvation with trembling and fear. This is not earning salvation but bringing the salvation to a logical conclusion. A life of obedience to Christ, service and sacrifice to God; without complaining or arguing is what God expects from His children. We are also to evangelize and live a pure life before man and God.

Madison United Methodist

While God created us, he is also with us on our journey through life. It is our choice how we respond. We need to reflect on the important people in our lives and show our love.

Life Insurance After Divorce By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

Most people buy life insurance to help family members stay financially secure after the policyholder’s death. Yet, when a marriage ends, the topic of life insurance is too often overlooked. These five tips can help you and your soon-to-be-ex discuss important changes to your policies before you sign the papers: Read the divorce agreement carefully. “Life insurance policies are often used to secure alimony and child support payments,” says Steven Weisbart, Ph.D., senior vice president and chief economist at the Insurance Information Institute. Before you sign any documents, make sure they meet your needs and that you’ll be able to comply with them. Divorce agreements are legally binding and can be difficult to alter. Discuss duration of coverage. The time frame for any obligatory life insurance coverage varies, often depending on the length of alimony and the ages of the children. If you’re purchasing insurance to protect a child financially, look into affordable term life or decreasing term life plans with coverage that expires when the child support obligation ends. Decide who will pay the premiums. Having your ex-spouse pay the insurance company may be convenient, but if you’re concerned about the possibility of default, ask your ex to pay you and then pay the premium yourself. Or, have your ex add you to the policy record so that you may receive duplicate copies of billing and lapse notices. “The consequences of your ex not paying you are less than if he or she doesn’t pay the insurance company,” Weisbart says. “Failing to pay the insurance company could cost you the policy.” Re-designate beneficiaries. Depending on the divorce settlement, many couples will rename their beneficiaries from each other to their children. In some states, probate laws automatically disqualify a former spouse from receiving life insurance proceeds unless the insured re-designates their ex-spouse after the divorce. If the children are minors, consider appointing an adult custodian to receive and handle the benefits on their behalf. Be sure to specify when the money will be transferred to the children and the percentage each child is to receive, Weisbart says. And keep in mind that beneficiaries cannot be re-designated after the insured’s death, so it’s critical to keep the policy up to date. Determine how much coverage you’ll need. Examine what your exspouse’s financial situation would be like if alimony and/or child support payments ended. Talk with your State Farm® agent and divorce attorney to arrive at a specific amount. The Insurance Information Institute offers more information on reviewing insurance coverages during a separation or divorce.

This Annual Water Quality Report is presented to customers of PWSD #2 of Monroe County, MO (PWS ID # MO2024402) and interested parties, This report details the quality of water delivered to users and other information of interest. If you have any questions about the information presented or need additional information, please contact our office at 660-327-4778. SOURCE OF DRINKING WATER 2. PWSD #2 of Monroe County purchases its water from the Clarence Cannon Wholesale Water Commission. The water source for the CCWWC is Mark Twain Lake located in Monroe and Ralls Counties, Missouri. Mark Twain Lake is a surface water reservoir owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The CCWWC has entered into a contract with the Corps and the state of Missouri for purchase of water storage space in Mark Twain Lake. The reservoir has a total of 16 million gallons of raw water per day available for drinking water purposes. Current production averages approximately 4.0 million gallons per day. The Department of Natural Resources conducted an assessment of our source water to determine its susceptibility to contamination. All surface water sources are vulnerable to land use activities within their watershed. This is why all surface water in Missouri must be treated in dual treatment trains with barriers in place for potential microbiological and chemical contaminants. The assessment is a delineation of our watershed(s) and inventory of the potential contaminants found within the watershed(s). If you want to know more about the assessment or wish to participate on a watershed protection team to protect this valuable resource, then please call 573-672-3221.

Pastor Terry Davison

First, we want to thank all for the prayers and support we have received in our recent tragedies. Our message on June 10, was entitled, “Doing the Two-Step”. During the past few decades, worldwide paradigms have changed. Once was the time when the postman, the fireman, the police officer, the teacher, the doctor, and the preacher were universally respected. Public servants were trusted and appreciated: their opinions mattered and their services were sought out. When one of these noble officers of society made a request, provided their skills, or offered an opinion, we accepted them with the dignity from whence they came. It was a one-step operation to obtain the cooperation of society in, belief, and acceptance were the norm. Unfortunately, these days such acceptance is an anomaly. Society waxes selfish and introverted as we move away from a paradigm of trust into a paradigm of suspicion. This societal attitude plays negatively to the hearts of this generation of children, teaching them to receive, rather than to hate rather than to suspect rather than to expect. This is part of the undivine plan that has the world in its cross hares: it is the plan of devils. 1 Peter 3:8 tells us, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” This devilish plan makes it difficult for public servants such as pastors to gain acceptance, making it a two-step operation: leaders must demonstrate beyond any doubt their sincerity and love for those they serve before they can minister to their hearts. This puts the onus on the church to live out its faith daily: and that is ironically what God has called us to do. In the end, the devilish plan makes us better Christians, thereby defeating the whole ungodly attack in the process. Live out your faith, and your words will be respected for it.

2012 Relay For Life of Monroe County - June 23, June 24

Why I Relay

By Barb McCall

At 14 years old my Grandpa Jacoba was my hero! In the 1970’s he was diagnosed and treated for Colon Cancer. The radiation treatments burned his internal organs so badly it landed him in ICU for over 2 weeks. . . . . . . that’s kind’a why I Relay When I was 19 the first landlord we rented from, was diagnosed and treated for cancer. I will never forget the tractors and semis and combines that flooded the fields to get the crops out for the Wayne Carter family, because he was too sick! . . . . . . that’s kind’a why I Relay I’ve heard the story, but never got the privilege to meet my husband’s mother. She was taken by cancer at the young age of 36, when Delbert was only 16. . . . . . . that’s kind’a why I Relay Joe McCall was the quiet type. I loved the twinkle of orneriness in his eye. He was so much fun to be around. The most gifted man to ever run heavy equipment. It didn’t matter what it was, he could drive/operate it. Delbert, Seth and Heath possess those gifts from Joe. I want to honor his life lost to lung cancer. . . . . . . that’s kind’a why I Relay My mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in July 2009. She never complained, through surgery, or treatment! My mom is an INCREDIBLE Woman of Faith! . . . . . . that’s kind’a why I Relay I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer on March 9th 2011. My entire family surrounded me with love and support. My Friends and Co-Workers were quick to offer meals, wore t-shirts & wrist bands reflecting their support! Even one-sided hugs, whenever I needed them! We had fun with the various wigs (Kendall, Olivia, Joleen, & Rachel) trying them on, one wig was a free gift from the American Cancer Society! They also provided a “Look Good, Feel Better Clinic” to teach me how to deal with make-up and the loss of eyebrows and eyelashes. The American Cancer Society was the Research Provider$ for the Chemo drugs that helped save my life! And the Tamoxafin that I will continue to take for the next five years to prevent the cancer from coming back. The American Cancer Society also provided me a gas card worth $100.00 that helped offset some of the expenses behind the 4300 miles driven for appointments and treatment. . . . . . . that’s kind’a why I Relay I love my husband, our three wonderful kids, my daughter-in-law, and two beautiful grandbabies! I NEVER want any of them, or the rest of our friends and family, to have any further experience with cancer than I have already put them through! I will be a friend and advocate for every cancer patient, that I can, to walk alongside their journey! THAT IS WHY I RELAY!!!!!!!!!


Help us shed light on the fight.

Whether it's a parent, sibling, friend or neighbor, we all know someone who has been touched by cancer. Relay For Life is one way to recognize loved ones who are surviving cancer and remember those who have lost the battle. After sunset at each Relay For Life event, the track is encircled with Luminaria decorated with the names of those who have battled cancer. This ceremony of light symbolizes the hope and courage with which we all continue to fight cancer. New this year is also a caregiver bag, as a way to honor those who have cared for a cancer patient. If you would like to make a donation for a Luminaria at our Relay For Life, simply complete the form below and mail to the address below.
