Local cooling centers can help relieve heat problems The heat has definitely set in here in northeast Missouri and throughout the state. The heat index has been close to or hit the 100 degree mark in the past week and the National Weather Service in St. Louis sees the trend continuing in July and August. Where can you go if you are without air conditioning or if you have an air malfunction? Local residents, who are without air conditioning or just need to cool down, may visit local cooling centers to help keep cool during this oppressive heat. In Paris, residents can go to the Senior Citizen’s Center for relief or they may use the library facilities during their operating hours. “Anyone can come in and get relief from the heat,” said Senior Citizen’s Center Director Tara Sheffield. “Come beat the heat and stay cool with us - we enjoy the company.” The Senior Center is open for heat relief from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., on any day the center is open (Monday through Friday) “The Community Building is air conditioned and people can use that if necessary,” said Paris City Superintendent Phillip Shatzer.” All they have to do is check in with the city office personnel.” For more information about the city community building call 660-327-4334. People in Madison can use

the Madison Community Center, on Main Street, for heat relief. If a resident needs a ride to the center they can contact Carol Larson, at the Community Center, at 660291-5478 or for information contact City Clerk Crystal Wolfe, at 660-291-5235. In Monroe City, the Senior Center has been designated a “cooling center.” The center is open from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Saturday. Call 573-735-2131 for additional information. During the summer, heat and humidity can cause serious health problems with little or no warning, and with highs in the 90’s and not much relief at night, Monroe County residents are reminded to take precautions keeping them safe from heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Last year, 47 Missourians died from heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and health professionals from the Monroe County Health Department and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services remind residents that it’s not only the very young and very old who are affected. (See chart 1) Remember these basic tips from your local health department to protect you and your family during severe heat and heat emergencies: · Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone. · Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. · Eat light, well-balanced meals at regular intervals. · Drink plenty of water and limit intake of alcoholic beverages.

The Why in the Roberts’ Opinion

The past Thursday the U.S. Supreme Court approved the Affordable Care Act in a narrow 5-4 decision. The decision was a split between the so called liberal and conservative justices with Chief Justice Roberts voting with the four liberal justices. Roberts was a staunch conservative before and since his 2005 appointment as Chief Justice. He had sided with the liberals for the second time in the same week, having votes to reject parts of Arizona’s immigration law on last Monday. Some conservatives were not happy with the vote of Judge Roberts and severe criticism was heard in print and by pundits. “Chief Traitor” was heard and “Impeach Roberts” T-shirts were on sale. The question most asked by supporters and critics of Judge Roberts’ decision was his motivation. Some scholars thought he was being protective of the Court and didn’t want the decision to be regarded as purely political. “It was to preserve the Court’s legitimacy, reputation and status “said others. The decision was also said to be a reaction to the perceived exercise of judicial power from “Roe vs. Wade” to “Bush vs. Gore” which has damaged the public perception of the Court. Looking at the opinion itself, it is something for everyone. The Commerce clause is restricted when it comes to mandating individuals to purchasing insurance under the clause. So Congressional power is limited in this area. The duck he calls a tax can neither sound or walk like a duck but is clearly a penalty intended to compel compliance. But calling it a tax gives the no new taxes folks something to quack about this election cycle. The law is wounded but preserved until a new president and/or new Congress take action to change it. Is Justice Roberts so slick that he can at once give something to both sides and at the same time preserve the reputation of the Court for being fair? Or is he a true constitutional conservative and scholar trying to do the right thing’ I am willing to give him the credit and respect for the latter view with the gnawing feeling that the answer may well be both.


Just Ask Dave... by David Eales Publisher/Editor Losing a member of our community family is hard. Losing a young member of our community family is even harder. To say that the loss of Mary Bernice Anglen is a blow to our fragile community threads is an understatement. Mary was a daughter, a granddaughter, a niece, a friend, a companion, a student, a club participant, a confidant, a wit, a best friend and a devoted Christian. David Eales But she was much more – she was part of our social infrastructure. She was one of those young adults that made us laugh, she made us think and she made us question what we believe. One of the memories I will remember most is Mary running down the hall of the high school yelling – “Mr. Eales, Mr. Eales”… I was thinking did she just ace her ACT or was she going to Nationals in one of her many participatory clubs or organizations and wanted to get that information in the newspaper. No, always the consummate team player – she had just beaten perennial top scorer Josh Ebbesmeyer by a point in Quiz Bowl and was excited and wanted the world to know. Her best friend posted on Facebook that there are so many memories she will never forget - Channing Tatum movies; ketchup on ice cream; Bugs Bunny; driving everywhere on God’s green earth just for fun; singing too loud; and talking about everything... and nothing. This year has seen God call many home and we will remember each and every one of them for all their donations to our community and to our lives. It is time to remember not to take those little moments we have with others for granted. Tim McGraw said it best in his song, Live Like You Were Dying. Tim said, “I finally read the Good Book, and I took a good, long, hard look at what I’d do if I could do it all again”… Don’t wait like Tim did… Do it today… tomorrow - for sure by the weekend… but do it. Spend time with that special someone, call that person that you have been meaning to call but have not, or just take some time to reflect on it all. People say never put off till tomorrow what you can do today – Right now I say don’t put off till today what you can do now! Have a great week!

Just a Thought

by Lisa Talton

What Are Our Words Doing? Most of us have had experiences in our lives where we have witnessed first hand how words spoken to us either lifted us up or broke us down. Most of us have also had times in our lives where the words we have spoken to others have hurt them and other times have helped them. Our words are so powerful and this can be a good thing and also a bad thing depending on what we decide to do with them. It breaks my heart when I hear how a child is being bullied and teased. The bullying and teasing might have a hint of physical to it but what usually stings the most and affects the child are the words that are spoken to them and about them. This makes me think about the phrase: Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. I’m sure most of us can remember chanting this on the playground when we were younger. It was nothing out of the ordinary to hear children calling each other names, making fun of each other and putting each other down. But how wrong we were by believing that words would never hurt us. A physical wound will heal a lot faster and sometimes won’t even leave a scar but when we are wounded in spirit by mean and hurtful words, it takes a lot longer to heal and almost always leaves a nasty emotional scar. I can still remember a boy from my childhood who would tease me relentlessly. He would call me bugs bunny because he said my two front teeth were huge. Okay, so they were a little on the big side but I eventually grew into them. I can laugh about it now but at the time he hurt my feelings and this comment upon numerous other comments that were said to me helped shape my internal way I viewed myself. I allowed negative words that were spoken to me define who I thought I was.

There is so much pressure to look a certain way and act a certain way and our children are daily fighting this battle. They are being made fun of, being told they are not skinny enough, pretty enough, cool enough. They are told they do not wear the right clothes or have the right friends. Some are being told by adults that they will never amount to anything. They are not good enough, smart enough and will never make it in life. WORDS, WORDS, WORDS are hurting them everyday. And not only are our children being affected but we as adults are also being effected by negative words that are spoken to us. Some of us are still carrying around negative words that were spoken to us ten, twenty, or thirty years ago. We are allowing these words to dictate what we can and cannot do even now. Sometimes the very person we need to speak positive, encouraging words to is our self. We need to remember that death and life are in the power of the tongue. The same way a mean, hurtful word can wound us, a positive, loving word can heal us. We can be used to lift someone up, to inspire and encourage just by giving them a compliment or telling them, “You can do it. I believe in you.” We can not believe for a moment that one positive word won’t make a difference. Most of us can think back to someone in our childhood who had a positive effect on us and more than likely it was because they gave us words full of life not death. It doesn’t matter what color we are, what kind of car we drive, how skinny or plump we are, how much money we do or don’t have, what kind of clothes we wear or don’t wear, if our hair is straight or curly, where we work or don’t work, we are all human and we all have feelings that can get hurt and feelings that can be lifted up depending on what type of words are spoken and if those words are taken to heart.. We can choose to let our words gives life or we can choose to let our words give death. I choose life.

Perry Presbyterian Church - Part II

Church now serves as eclectic antique/thrift store Part II: “It was a pretty beautiful church,” these are the words of Diana Gramling, from Fayetteville, Ark., about the Perry Presbyterian Church where she had attended 4-H meetings. “We brought her here for church for the Piddletown Busy Bee 4-H Club (of Hutchinson),” said her mother Jayne Robinson. “We came here 30 years ago for church.” The church is still here due to the efforts of Jere Nelson, who decided that this Perry landmark was not going to be torn down and instead took the initiative and has turned the gorgeous structure into an eclectic antique/thrift store combination that people walk through looking at the goods on sale but also gawking at the incredible architecture, ornate wood carvings and striking stained glass windows. Nelson has converted some of the 25 odd rooms into separate enclosures with each having a definite theme. There is a chapel for medication, a soon to be finished Thomas Kincade sitting room, a children’s room, and a tea room with Amish jams, jellies and honeys. “I have Watkins,” said Nelson. “I have pictures on tin, we have piñatas, we have something for everyone.” “There is a lot of open space to display my inventory,” said Nelson. “We also have 30 vendors on the main floor and a thrift store in the basement.” “I have everything for pottery and concrete lawn and garden fixtures,” said Nelson. There are still rooms that are going to be developed time permitting. The pride of joy of Nelson’s venture though is going to be her gardens. She has grandiose plans to put in butterfly gardens, rose trellises, a soon to come gazebo, and other garden fixtures. Nelson has tea, water, soda and homemade cakes by J&C Bakery (Jeannie Nobis) on hand for sale. Nelson bought the building because she hated to see it torn down, loved the area for her gardens and wanted to just restore the building. “I was crowded in my old building and this gave me more room,” said Nelson. Editor’s Note: This is the second part in a three part series about the Perry Presbyterian Church and its new owner. Next week - What’s Next!

Ralls County Soil and Water sponsors Alpaca Farm Tour

On Wednesday, June 20, Ralls County Soil and Water Conservation District (Ralls SWCD) sponsored an educational trip for Ralls R-II summer school students to Stark Brothers Nursery and to Martin’s Starlight Alpaca Ranch, in rural Center. Students of grades 4th through 8th grade were exposed to the process of grafting of seedlings, the labor involved to start and grow new plants, and the marketing of the plants. The tour was guided by Mr. Elmer Kidd, production manager for Starke Brothers. The tour was planned by Mrs. Debbie Epley, Outreach Director from Stark Brothers. Students were able to pet an Alpaca Caria (very young) baby Alpaca. The students were very interested in the animals because they are different from our area farm animals. Josiah, Martin’s grandson from Arizona, informed the group that Alpacas are very different animals due to the area they were naturally raised. They originated from the mountain Highlands of Peru. The tour was possible through the help from area businesses. The transportation cost were possible due to the help from Farmers COOP, of New London; Lake Farms,

Liter Fertilizer & Chemicals, LLC, Ralls County Electric Cooperative, and Steven Lewton Insurance Agency. Food and drinks were sponsored by Hickman IGA, of


Perry; Ruba’s General Store, of New London; Farm Bureau Insurance, of New London; and Northeast Missouri Soybean Council.

6 Thursday, July 5, 2012 Holliday Christian Church

Pastor David Holmes

The congregation of Holliday Christian Church gathered on Sunday, July 1, to worship and to mourn the loss of a member of the church family, Rebecca Hultz. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family; she will be missed. Reverend Holmes welcomed all in attendance and expressed appreciation for those assisting with the dinner served to the Hultz family. Sally Blakemore served as pianist for services. The church will host a homemade ice cream and cake supper and political candidate speaking on Friday, July 6, beginning at 6 p.m. The annual meeting will be held at the church on Sunday evening, July 15, with the carry-in meal shared at 6 p.m. Happy birthday was sung to: Olivia Crain, Chance McCarty and Brad Callison. The opening hymn, “O Beautiful for Spacious Skies” was sung and was followed by pastoral prayer and “Gloria Patri”. The children gathered and Reverend Holmes told the Biblical story of Jairus’ daughter who was ill and died, but was brought back to life by Jesus because of Jairus’ faith. The lesson demonstrated the power of a parent’s love for their children and the great things which happen with Jesus in our lives. The congregation extended sympathy to the families of Mary Anglen, Mary Dicken and Jerry Dunlap. The joys of a good report for Sandy Callison and Lysa Holmes’ progress out of a cast and in a walking boot were shared. The prayer hymn, “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” was sung. Moments of meditation were observed as the final verse was played. Pastoral prayer and unison recital of the Lord’s Prayer followed. “Bread of Heaven” was the communion hymn sung as lady elders and deacons went forward and offered prayers for the bread and cup. Prayer and the doxology followed the sharing of communion and collection of offerings. “A Power Greater than Death” was the title of Reverend Holmes’ morning message which referenced scripture from Mark 5:21-43. The hymn of invitation and dedication, “Battle Hymn of the Republic” was sung. Pastoral prayer and singing of “The Spirit Song” closed morning worship. Following a time of fellowship and refreshments, Diane Wilson shared a story, “Seated Next to an Unpleasant Person”. Jim McMorris opened Bible Study with prayer and led the study of the 18th Chapter of Matthew. All are welcome and encouraged to attend worship; regular services are held at 9:30 a.m. with Bible Study following at 10:30 a.m., each Sunday.

Mt. Airy Baptist Church

Pastor Robt. Cavanaugh

On Sunday, July 1, 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 large library donation given, next weeks love offering for the Feed a Child Program, Men’s Breakfast this Saturday at 8:30, the Mountianairs will perform at Monroe Manor on July 9 and in Clarence on July 30. We will celebrate the 4th with a barbeque and games in the evening. This week’s message was titled “Future Glimpses; Why we Evangelize” and came from Revelation 20:11-15. The Great White Throne Judgment will occur without fail. Many attempt to symbolize this event but there is no symbolic language describing the event. This judgment is for those who have spent a lifetime rejecting Christ as Lord and Savior. The mercy and grace of the cross will not apply, only judgment. Everyone on earth needs to know of this coming event so they have the opportunity to miss it. Do your loved ones know what is to come?

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

The Sunday, July 1 services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Patti Grimmett playing “The Battle Hymn” on the piano followed by Debbie Carey leading in song to “God of Our Fathers”, “He Lifted Me”, “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and “America, the Beautiful”. Prayer was held for the families of Dr. Peter Ekern; Mary Anglen; and the Dunlaps; Kathy; Mark; Nadine Young’s brother; Becca Rothermich; the Cearleys; the Grimmetts; peoples of flooding in Florida and fires in Colorado and for much needed rain, followed by all saying the Lord’s Prayer and the responsive call to worship based on Psalms 16, 23, and 121. Pastor John played guitar as he and Patti sang “Amazing Grace/My Chains Are Gone”. The message “The Gift of Freedom” was based on scripture from John 8:31-36 Jesus did not come to give us political freedom but to be the kind of person God wants us to be - our hearts are free when we connect with God. Blest are those who walk with God - have eternal life - love one another...a new start - a new life! Make a choice to be reborn. Do not live a life of worry - that is not what God wants us to be. A life of meaning purpose and joy. Jesus took care of all evil; pain, and suffering, for all of us when He died on the cross. Rest with God! Be happy with all the things God has given you, the freedom to make the world a better place! Help Love - Serve one another... Remember Jesus died for our freedom... Paul wrote in Galatians love and serve one another. Communion was served by Martha Hill and Earl Sweitzer with the offertory led by Kaylee Beckham as Patti played “America” and all sang the “Doxology”. Patti played “O God, Our Help in Ages Past” 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.

Paris Full Gospel Fellowship

Pastor Terry Davison

“Seven days without prayer makes one weak,” is the old cliche that was our focus the week of July 1. First Thessalonians 5:17 teaches us to “pray without ceasing”. Prayer is our strongest tool, our greatest ally: and yet we find ourselves too busy to pray. James 5: 16 tells us, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray for one another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much.” This teaches us a dual paradigm: that when we pray for someone, we should expect results...and that when we pray for others, our lives will be touched as well. Jesus taught, “In as much as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have it unto me.” What we do for others, the way we pray for others, has a direct bearing upon the way God treats and honors us. In each of the Apostle Paul’s epistles, he begins be telling his reader how much he loves them, and that he prays for them daily. This is part and parcel of what made his ministry grow. In a world of selfishness and “ME” consciousness, people need to see the church reaching out in a “WE” attitude. Our daily prayers will strengthen that attitude... but without prayer, both we and our spirits grow weak.

Santa Fe Christian Church

Pastor Kenny Sharp

Guests and members were greeted by Bob and Karen Conley Sunday morning for the worship service titled, “God’s Man”. Pastor Kenny Sharp read Ezekiel 22: 30 and spoke of how God couldn’t find a man to stand in the gap. He is looking for 1) men of righteousness to stand up for the truth, 2) leaders of repentance and restoration, and 3) men to be bold in their faith. Scripture was also read from Nehemiah 4: 19-20 telling how Nehemiah wanted to build the walls back up and took up defense in the holes of the wall not yet completed to keep evil out and goodness in. That is what God is looking for in His men. He wants “Men of Valor”, bold men in their spirit of God. Dawn Peak spoke with the children of how they take care of their teeth by cleaning and brushing to keep them healthy. She then shared that to keep their spirit healthy they should read the Bible, pray, and follow God’s Word. Joni Sharp led the children’s ministry. Prayers were requested for Cassie and Polly Olivas, the family of Mary Anglen, James A. Booth, Tonya Knight, Jo Reynolds’s son, Jim Long, the family of Dr. Pete Ekern, those with no electricity in the WashingtonVirginia area, silent prayers, the firefighters and people involved in the Colorado fires, and those serving in the military. Traveling mercies were requested for Angela Johnson and family, and Pat Miller, Craig Miller and daughters. Praises were shared by Tom East that his tests went well and he has had no more symptoms. Also, family members shared that John Baker will be celebrating a birthday this week, that Kenny and Joni Sharp celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary Sunday, that Joe and Karen Miller will be celebrating their 37th wedding anniversary this week and that Danielle Sharp, Jacob, and Kelly Sharp were home visiting family for the weekend. A thank you card was read from Bill and Violet Wilkerson for the cards, prayers, and visits.

THE SIMPLE IRA PLAN for small businesses By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

The SIMPLE IRA, more properly known as the Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees, is a relatively easy way for a small business to add a retirement plan to their employee benefits. How The Plan Works Each eligible employee sets up an IRA and can choose to make deferrals before taxes from their paychecks. Employers can either make a non-elective payment of 2 percent of compensation to everyone who is eligible for the plan, or they can match the employees’ contributions up to 3 percent of their compensation for the year. (All employees must receive the same match, but the employer can change the percentage from year to year.) The employer can deduct the contributions from income taxes. The participating employees don’t have to pay taxes on the income that they contribute, either, although they may owe taxes when they take withdrawals. Any investment earnings the employees make will compound tax-deferred until withdrawal, too. Who Is Eligible Eligible employees must have received at least $5,000 in either of the two years before the current year, and are reasonably expected to earn at least $5,000 in the current year. An employer can set less restrictive requirements (for example, allowing all employees to participate, even those making less than $5,000), but it can’t make more restrictions. Money in the plan is 100 percent vested; employees can take all of the funds in their account with them when they leave the firm. This plan is for firms with fewer than 100 employees. If your company grows and hires more than 100 people, the plan can continue for two more years, then it has to be disbanded. The ease and flexibility of a SIMPLE IRA can help a small business give employees a valuable benefit to attract and retain talent. The minimal paperwork and ability for the owner(s) to set money aside for their own retirement makes it more appealing. That may give your company the edge it needs to grow.

Help MoDOT - report pavement blowups

With the recent triple digit temperatures, there has been a lot of talk about a road safety hazard MoDOT doesn’t have control of and can’t predict.... pavement blowups. “So far, MoDOT has not experienced a pavement blowup in northeast Missouri during these high temperatures,” explained MoDOT Maintenance and Traffic Engineer Jennifer Hinson. What does a pavement blowup look like? A “blow up” can be described as a big bump in the road that happens without warning. Ninety degrees and above is usually the magic number for a pavement blowup. Moisture, built up under weakened joints in the roadway, heats and expands creating stress on the joint. The concrete sections, butted up against one another, also expand and create pressure. The joints tighten until they eventually reach capacity, then one or both joints release the pressure in the easiest way possible -- up. The main problem when this happens is the potential danger to motorists. The joint looks like a pile of rocks in the road from a driver’s point of view. If you see a blowup, please slow down, and call MoDOT, the highway patrol or the local sheriff’s department. MoDOT will be called to the scene and will temporarily repair and release the pressure within 2 hours after being notified. At a later date, crews will be

that Marion, Ralls, and Monroe Counties comply with a state law requiring children’s attorneys, known as guardians ad litem, to be properly trained. Twenty-three attorneys completed the training and received 3.6 continuing legal education credit hours. Also attending the training were several Tenth Circuit Juvenile Officers and

Members met at the home of Jane Akers with nine present and guests Johnny Ragsdale, Harold and Jean Wilson, Neal Crain, Terry Callison and Vic Hultz. It was

The training was held in partnership with the United States District Court, which provided free continuing legal education hours to attorneys in the afternoon under the leadership of United States District Judge E. Richard Webber and Chief Judge Catherine D. Perry, of St. Louis. The Guardian Ad Litem training included a presentation from Dr. Patsy Carter, Director of Children’s Clinical Services, Department of Mental Health, who spoke about the effect of trauma and substance use on the brain development of children and new evidence-based

methods for treatment. The training also included a discussion, led by Judge Rachel Bringer, Judge David Mobley, and Judge John Jackson, about the budget issues facing counties regarding guardian ad litem fees. The Tenth Circuit Juvenile Office presented a demonstration of the Circuit’s polycom equipment, which allows children or parents to participate in hearings through electronic media. “I am grateful that so many attorneys were willing to volunteer their time to complete the necessary training to assist children in crisis,” said Judge Bringer.

Mark Twain Lake has Burn Ban

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake has issued a burn ban until further notice due to dry conditions in the region to protect visitors and resources. The ban prohibits the use of charcoal or wood fires. Visitors to public recreation areas and campgrounds may use attended gas grills or stove tops. It just takes a small spark, which can escape into grass or nearby brush, to rapidly spread due to dry, breezy weather conditions. Vegetation is dry enough that it will burn even if green. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that fireworks are prohibited on all project grounds, no matter what the weather conditions. If you have questions please contact the Mark Twain Lake Project Office at 573-735-4097 or email Marktwaininfo@usace.

Cooling Centers... Continued from front · Wear loose-fitting, lightweight and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible. · Protect your face and head by wearing a wide-brimmed hat. Wear sunscreen. · Avoid strenuous work during the warmest part of the day; use the buddy system when working in extreme heat and take frequent breaks. · Consider spending the warmest part of the day in public buildings such as libraries, schools, movie theaters, shopping malls and other community facilities. · Be aware of medications that may impair the body’s response to heat, including antihistamines, tranquilizers and some medications for heart disease. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) monitors high temperatures and humidity across the state to prevent heat-related illness and death. The elderly and the chroni-

cally ill are more vulnerable to the effects of high temperatures. They perspire less and are more likely to have health problems requiring medications that can impair the body’s response to heat. Many prescription medications make individuals more sensitive to the heat. Some of these medications include anti-psychotics, major tranquilizers, antihistamines, over-the-counter sleeping pills, antidepressants, heart drugs and some anti-Parkinsonian agents. Each year many Missourians suffer from heat-related illnesses, with some cases resulting in death. During prolonged periods of high temperatures, air conditioning is the best preventive measure. If you have any questions or concerns about a heat related issue, immediately see a medical professional. Sources: Department of Health and Senior Services, Monroe County Health Department

NECAC starts new Chillin’ at 60 program

A new program sponsored by the not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) is aimed at keeping elderly residents of five counties cool this summer. It’s called “Chillin’ at 60,” and will be available in Marion, Ralls, Lewis, Monroe and Shelby counties. NECAC is a 12-county area notfor-profit social service, community health and public housing Community Action Agency. NECAC contracts with federal, state and local governments, private businesses and other not-for profit organizations to operate and administer selfsufficiency service programs for the low-income, elderly, youth, disabled and disadvantaged population. The agency’s Central Administration Offices are located in Bowling Green, with NECAC Service Centers operated in each county. Under the program, income-qualifying people ages 60 and older can get fans on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, those with a signed and dated letter from a doctor on letterhead with a telephone number will qualify to receive an air conditioner. However, the program is not just a one-time event. NECAC is asking residents, businesses, community groups, churches and other organizations in the five counties to become partners in the project and donate money or fans and air conditioners. “In the extremely hot conditions of summer, older residents are hesitant to ask for help,” said NECAC Monroe County Service Coordinator Lisa Blickhan. “Therefore, NECAC is trying to fill this unspoken need, and we’re asking anyone who can donate to help.” To qualify for a fan or air conditioner, residents of the five counties


must complete an application with photo identification and Social Security card. They also must complete an intake assessment at a NECAC Service Center and finish a NECAC life-skills class. People who want to contribute fans and air conditioners, or those who want to sign up for the program, should call or stop by one of the following NECAC Service Centers: Monroe County Service Coordinator Lisa Blickhan: 314 N. Washington in Paris -- 660-327-4110. Ralls County Service Coordinator Judy Eaton: 411 Main in New London -- 573-985-2411. Shelby County Service Coordinator Lisa Blickhan: 204 E. Third in Shelbyville -- 573-633-2210.

Katy Trail Ride... Continued from front people,” said Anna Crusha. “It was incredible listening to their experiences and where they had been and what they had done.” Both Henderson and Crusha were quick to note that they thoroughly enjoyed the company of their fellow riders and enjoyed the camaraderie. “It was like being at summer camp,” said Crusha. “Everyone was helpful and it was very social. ” “Everyone motivated each other,” said both Henderson and Crusha. The funniest part of the ride according to both riders was the first evening after retiring to their tents – they suddenly thought it was pouring rain but it was 40 foot sprinklers pummeling the tents as someone had forgotten to turn them off. Both riders explained that there is a ‘SAG” wagon that will help bring people to the campground if they cannot make it the last few miles. The wagon also provides water or sports drinks Henderson explained that to do something like the Katy Trail ride, a hybrid bicycle is needed. “You can’t ride a street bicycle on rides such as the Katy Trail, it just doesn’t work well,” said Henderson.

The surface of the Katy Trail is packed crushed limestone. Mountain bicycle and hybrid bicycle tires are best suited for the trail. Both Henderson and Crusha rode hybrids – one a Schwinn and the other a Trek. Now that they have conquered the Katy Trail their next goal is the MS 100 – a shorter albeit a faster ride in a shorter timeframe. Both riders reminded riders of all experience level to make sure they stay hydrated and eat at least snacks during their ride. Some Katy Trail Ride statistics include: Full Tour Riders – 306; Day Riders – 16; Non Riders – 3; Oldest Rider 84; Youngest Rider 6; Average Age – 54; and number of state represented on the ride – 29. Henderson and her husband Tal have five children, Jim, Megan, Kara, Tallmadge and Tessa, and 10 grandchildren while Crusha and her husband Gary have four daughters – Maura, Sophia, Gretchen and Victoria. Both Anna and Sharon are excited about riding again next year and including others in their ride. Crusha has her eyes set on a triathlon in the future, while Henderson just wants to ride, ride, ride!

Happy-Go-Lucky 4-H Club will not re-schedule the July meeting. The next meeting will be on Sunday, Aug. 5, at 6 p.m., at the GPS School house. All our prayers go out to Mary’s family - we feel your loss.

by Saylor Forsyth

My Friend Mary!... This last week something very sad happened. My friend, Mary Anglen passed away. I met Mary two years ago at 4-H camp. She was a really nice person. She did fun games with our cabin. Mary always included everyone. She even did my make-up for the dance on Thursday night. Mary was also my cadet teacher this year in 4th grade. She helped my class with our math work. One time she even taught the lesson for us. We really liked her. Mary was fun and always smiling and happy. I had a very good experience knowing Mary. I’m glad I got to know her at school and at 4-H camp. It is hard to lose someone you care about, but it is good to know they are in Heaven.

Monroe County Appeal, Paris, Mo. •

Visit Old Th reshers!!! Paris R-II school board approves next year’s budget... Continued from front Authorize sale of surplus property - The board members authorized the sale of surplus property including mats and mowers for sale. Approve Testing Service – It was noted that the district does use psychological testing services but Lisa Youse will do more testing so the district should not use as much will continue Storch Testing Services at $60 an hour. Board members approved continuing the testing services contract. Program Evaluations Attendance - Principal Chris Johnson gave the board members a comprehensive overview of attendance over the past five years with high school running 94 percent and elementary and junior high at 95 percent. “Attendance is not a huge issue in the district,” said new Superintendent Chris Johnson. “Overall it is very consistent.” Superintendent Henke also presented Parents As Teachers – It was noted that nothing new in evaluation, it is an excellent program that helps get parents involved in child’s education. “I can’t say enough about the program - it is an excellent program that helps us,” said Superintendent Henke. “We are fortunate to have them,” said President Williams regarding the PAT program and the Monroe County Health Department. Secondary Principal Matt Smith presented the MO Options as basically a program that targets at risk

students and has necessary requirements to be met. “We do have a student that we plan to use this during the upcoming year,” said Principal Smith. “This is a viable way to have a student that is behind get their high school diploma.” It was noted that the program uses the GED as a progression tool and that the student also must take required EOC tests. “It is a viable pathway to graduation,” said Principal Smith. Superintendent Report - Next meetings: June 29 (close fiscal year); Monday, July 9, at 4 p.m.; and Wednesday, July 18, at 7 p.m. Superintendent Henke - read two thank you notes including one from the Agnew Scholarship winner Cody Dawson. Principals Report Secondary Principal Matt Smith noted that, “I thought the end of the year activities went really well.” Principal Smith praised Lisa Youse, David Freitag and Mrs. Haley for their year ending success. Principal Smith noted that due to a teacher resignation there needs to be a couple changes to the student class schedule. Elementary Principal Chris Johnson/Wendi Wood - discussed objective based grade card for second grade. It was explained that it makes more sense to start grades at third grade and not second. “Wendi and I agree that this is the way it should be,” said Superintendent Johnson. “Parents will know

more than if just given a grade. Typically parents like this - not just a one-page card. It will meet and show second grade curriculum objectives.” The board members received an overview of an after school grant program in Moberly looking to expand to Madison and Paris. It was noted that their program is successful and have been invited to write a grant. Taking Care of Kids is a nondenominational Christian organization but not required to participate. It’s to support kids who are having difficulty in the public school program. It was noted that all they want from the district is to use facilities when they need it. There is a grant paid liaison and 4-6 adults for every 20 youth. They will use the facilities, host prevention assemblies, send flyers home, and parents will have the chance to meet with the liaison when they need to. “It will give us another resource for those kids that need our help,” said Superintendent Johnson. “It will also be a good resource for parents. This is a resource and we a referral agency. It helps with support that the kids don’t get at home. “ In an approved closed session the board members approved Brenda Bragg the part time custodial position for the summer; approved Paul Turner for a teaching contract; approved Quentin Forrest for an assistant football coaching contract; approved Brant Long as the assistant girl’s basketball coach; approved Lisa Youse for A+ Coordinator; and

approved Jimmie Stewart for a bus driver position. All positions except Brenda Braggs are for the 20122013 school year. The board members also approved Mary Sue Branham as the high school part-time lunch clerk position for the 2012-13 school year. With no further business the board members adjourned at 10:20 p.m. Special Meeting – June 29 The Paris R-II Board of Education met in special session to balance out the budget for the school year 20112012. President Libby Williams called the meeting to order at 7 a.m., on Friday, June 29. Budget to Actual for 2011-2012: It was noted that Fund III is in the minus due to an extra bond payment. “We had a total increase of $20,000 this year and I do see things getting a little better,” said Superintendent Nancy Henke. The board members made a motion and approved the actual setting of district balances. Authorized Representative: Chris Johnson was approved as authorized representative for the Paris R-II School District. This appointment allows Superintendent Johnson to sign all DESE and Federal programs. The board members approved Superintendent Johnson as authorized representative. Evaluation System (for educators): Superintendent Johnson gave an overview of the new DESE evaluation program. “This does not hurt our district at

all and there is no cost to the program,” said Superintendent Johnson. “This is a good program to give experience to our administrators,” said Superintendent Henke. “We are going to be using these standards and this is an opportunity to ask questions rather than having to be asked,” said Principal Matt Smith. “It has been a long time since DESE revamped their evaluation systems. They are working hard to make this system as objective as they can. No matter who goes into a classroom there is an objective. “ “We have been doing this across the state but it has not been a consis-

tent program,” said Nancy “Pilot programs are good and we need to participate,” said Board President Libby Williams. The board members agreed and approved participation in the pilot program for evaluation.” Diesel Bids: The board members approved the authorization of bids for 6,000 gallons of diesel fuel. In an approved closed session the board members approved offering non-certified employment to Kayla Doerhoff and Brant Long for the 2012-2013 school year. With no further business the board members adjourned at 7:31 a.m.
