Snow, Blowing Snow and High Winds and Brutal Cold Envelopes Area!!! APPEAL PHOTO A Polar Vortex descended on the Midwest and most of the United States. The polar vortex, as it sounds, is circulation of strong, upper-level winds that normally surround the northern pole in a counterclockwise direction -- a polar low-pressure system. These winds tend to keep the bitter cold air locked in the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere. It is not a single storm. On occasion, this vortex can become distorted and dip much farther south than you would normally find it, allowing cold air to spill southward. Temperatures in Paris reached -30+ with wind chills and on Monday. Jan. 6 the temperature never entered positive numbers.

Flu season beginning, cases on the rise, take precautions to stay well

It is flu season! The Monroe County Health Department would like to remind county residents that while there is not a high precedence of Influenza in Monroe County, flu season has begun as witnessed by the high incidence of influenza in Boone County. With cases of influenza increasing nationwide, residents are reminded that flu shots are still available at the Monroe County Health Department. “Yearly flu vaccinations are covered by Medicare and Medicaid and recommended for everyone six months of age and older,” noted Monroe County Health Department Director Paula Delaney. DHSS recommends annual influenza vaccinations for everyone six months and older, since it is the best tool for prevention of influenza.

From the desk of the Editor

Little Sponges Part 1


It was cold!!! Wow to say it has been cold this past week is definitely an understatement. But as always the cold weather, the snow, and the covered roads were a chance for our friends, our neighbors, our community members to shine as always. I am amazed and awed at the dedication and professionalism shown by the road and bridge and street departments in attacking and cleaning up the snow. As I traveled around town, mostly on foot, the trucks and snow moving equipment was everywhere. It didn’t matter if it was 30 degrees as during Hercules, the snowstorm, or -30 wind chills as with the recent Polar Vortex - the workers and trucks were buzzing all over city and county streets and roads. Thank you to their dedication numerous people were able to traverse the highways and byways.


Next up in the snow hit parade are the neighbors - those selfless individuals, like Slater Stone and Steven Hayhurst, among many others, who without regard for the time involved shoveled, moved, pushed, plowed or in some way made the snow disappear from neighbors and community members driveways, sidewalks and doorways. It is neighbors and friends like this that allow us to say - thank you very much for all your hard work and efforts. What a great place to live huh? Have a great week!-

It never ceases to amaze me how much our children pick up our behaviors, attitudes, phrases and even our way of doing things. When they are born they are like a blank slate just waiting to be written on. They are clay ready to be molded. Now I do believe God has a plan for them before they are even placed into our care but I also believe that we can help foster that plan, hinder it or maybe delay it based on the way we raise them. This is a big responsibility for us parents but it is also an honor. God trusted us with the care and upbringing of our children. It can almost be overwhelming at times but that is why it is so important to have a close, intimate relationship with the One who cre-

Gone But Not Forgotten

the passing of Tom Clancy, author of “Patriot Games” and “Hunt for Red October” who died this year at only 66 years of age. Jonathan Winters passed on this year at age 87. He could make anyone laugh and kept his humor clean. Jean Stapleton died this year at age 90. Her sweet Edith Bunker was a constant antidote to the Archie Bunker in a lot of us. Other music greats that passed on this year included the great George Jones, the county star that did it best. He was 81. Another country legend, Ray Price, passed on this year at age 87. Some others that I have had the pleasure of hearing their great music include Van Cliburn, classic pianist, age 78, Richie Havens, folk singer, age 72, Lou Reed, rock musician, age 71, and Patty Andrews, last sister standing of the Andrew Sisters, age 94. (Yes I am that old that I remember the Andrew Sisters!). And yes a nod to “Nick” Nixon, St. Louis Area County singer and band leader who kept me interested in country music for many years. He was 74. Final goodbyes to St. Louis business leaders, L.K. Wood, real estate developer 89, Lou Fusz Sr. 94, auto dealer and Doris Schnuck, 88, and Genevieve Dierberg, 107, who helped build successful grocery chains.

The problem today is many of us do not glean from God when raising our children. Some of us get caught up in our own selfishness. Some of us have never received healing from past hurts and then we try to parent out of that hurt. Then there are those of us who put too much pressure on ourselves to be the perfect parent and do not allow God to have any control when raising our

Two cars of cinders are being scattered over the stock pens at Paris to make a more solid footing for livestock. Down in the Johnson school district, south of Stoutsville, Mrs. Corene Douglas Rice, the teacher, reports that three of her students have never missed a word in spelling during the entire term so far. The perfect spellers are Merle Smelser, John Adams, Jr. and Ruby Dowell. 75 Years Jan. 12, 1939 Emmett Dooley, who also owns groceries at Goss,

especially when they are modeling our unattractive characteristics. (We all have them.) But it is okay. As long as we are doing our best to live our lives in a way that is pleasing to God then He will pick up in the places we are weak. We are not expected to be a perfect parent but we are expected to be a parent who is invested in the positive upbringing of our children. A parent who understands what we do affects what they do. A parent who makes hard decisions and may have to give up some selfish wants for the good of our children. A parent who intentionally works on our own self development and character so we can effectively and positively touch the lives of our children. We as parents need to take on the responsibilities that come with being a parent. We made the decision to have them or at least did the actions to bring them into the world so we do not have any other choice than to do what is necessary.



Each year we hear of the passing of friends and acquaintances in addition to family members who have died that year. As we get older the number of those we know who passed away seems to increase each year. Likewise, individuals that we didn’t know personally we lost each year that had an influence on our lives or gave us pleasure by virtue of their talent or example. Below is my list and I know some of them would be on yours as well. One of the most famous men we lost this year was Stan Musial of the St. Louis Cardinals. I was fortunate enough to have followed almost all of his career and like most kids who could hit left-handed, I tried, without success, to copy his unique batting style. He was a true gentleman and family man who could serve as an example for all professional athletes. He was 92. Patti Page also left us at age 85. Many of us tried to dance to the “Tennessee Waltz” and other of her songs and she helped us to develop a little closer relationship with a lot of pretty and very patient young girls. Former Mouseketeer Annette Funicello passed away this year at age 70. She kept some older boys watching the Mickey Mouse Club longer than usual and was a talented actress. For those of us who like a good novel from time to time, we note the passing of Elmore Leonard, 87, best selling crime novelist and we also recognize


children. We have to find a place in the middle. We need to do our part as a parent but also allow God to do His part. We are supposed to raise our children in the way they should go. We need to teach manners and how to respect others and not just by words only but more importantly by showing them in the way we treat others. The do as I say not as I do is a terrible parenting model. I can’t cuss like a sailor and then get mad at my children when they do it. They are modeling me. I can’t talk behind people’s backs and gossip about them and then expect any different from my children. If my children see me breaking rules and telling lies then it is going to be easier for them to do that also. Our children look up to us especially when they are very young. They are watching everything we say and do. They even pick up on our mannerisms and phrases. This can be a great thing but also a not-so-great thing

Polar Vortex hits Monroe County



Paris License Office now up for bidding process The Missouri Office of Administration is now accepting management contract bids for the Paris License Office. Interested individuals and groups must submit their bids to operate the Paris License Office by Jan. 31. A copy of the Request for Proposal (RFP) bidders are required to use to develop their bids can be viewed here. Prospective bidders may also tour the Paris office from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m., Jan. 15 to gain perspective on how a license office is operated. In fiscal year 2013, more than 10,000 transactions were conducted at the Paris office, generating $34,290 in agent processing fees. The Missouri Department of Revenue oversees 182 license offices which are each operated by independent agents. All of

the license offices were put out for bid under the competitive procurement process in 2009. Contracts were awarded for one year with three oneyear renewal options. The move toward a competitive procurement process of the license offices overhauled the way local motor vehicle and driver license offices are awarded and was one of the first actions of Gov. Jay Nixon’s administration.

Bids will be evaluated on areas such as expertise of the personnel proposed, methods proposed for performing the services and whether the individual or entity is a not-for-profit, political subdivision, a Missouri Certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) or a Missouri Service-Disabled Veteran Enterprise.

(nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses, like flu. How does the flu spread? Flu viruses are thought to spread mainly from person to person through

the coughing, sneezing, or talking of someone with the flu. Flu viruses also may spread when people touch something with flu virus on it and then touch their mouth, eyes, or nose. Many other viruses spread these ways too. People infected with flu may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5-7 days after becoming sick. That means you may be able to spread the flu to someone else before you know you are sick as well as while you are sick. Young children, those who are severely ill, and those who have severely weakened immune systems may be able to infect others for longer than 5-7 days. What are everyday preventive actions? Everyday preventive actions are steps that people can take to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory illness, like flu.

These include the following personal and community actions: • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. This will block the spread of droplets from your mouth or nose that could contain

• If an outbreak of flu or another illness occurs, follow public health advice. This may include information about how to increase distance between people and other measures

germs. • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcoholbased hand rub. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread this way. • Try to avoid close contact with sick people. • If you or your child gets sick with a respiratory illness, like flu, limit contact with others as much as possible to help prevent spreading illness. Stay home (or keep your child home) for at least 24 hours after fever is gone except to seek medical care or for other necessities. Fever should be gone without the use of a feverreducing medicine.

On Sunday, Jan. 5, 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: we are close to achieving the Lottie Moon offering goal, and men’s breakfast is on Jan. 11, at 8:30 am. The Lord’s Supper will be next Sunday. The message this week was titled ‘Ultimate Surrender’ and came from Genesis Chapter 22. The biblical account of Abraham’s complete obedience to God command to sacrifice Isaac is one of the most moving passages of Scripture. The command seems so opposed to God’s loving nature that we have a hard time understanding this. In Genesis 12 God started the process of stripping away everything Abraham leaned on for support until only God was left. This is a process God wants every child of God to go through. The process is painful for each of us and sometime we want to think God is cruel. God is not cruel. God knows that when we completely surrender to Him we will receive the best blessings from Him. Yet we struggle with this command. It just seems wrong. How do we resolve this? Understand this command was only given to Abraham. It was a onetime command. Through obedience to this command Abraham was allowed to enter as close as any human could into God’s experience in sacrificing His only Son. We claim God is the author and giver of life and is sovereign over all life. To say God is cruel in this shows we want sovereignty over our own lives. Child sacrifice was common in Abraham’s time. If a pagan deity who did not exist demanded such love and obedience is it too much for the God of heaven to ask? But God does not command us to kill our children; just offer them back to Him. The reasons Abraham acted in complete obedience include: Abraham’s relationship with God was such that he knew God’s voice. Abraham could not challenge God’s command on a theological, intellectual, psychological, or worldly basis because it would have interrupted Abraham’s worship of God. Worship of God is at the heart of complete surrender to God. Abraham realized God was worthy of any gift Abraham could offer, even his own beloved son. Abraham received the blessing each of us long for daily. God provided the sacrifice that God had demanded. God gave the greatest assurance that the promises of God would be fulfilled by swearing them upon Himself. God also provided for Isaac’s future by providing his wife Rebekah in verse 23. Mature Christians know surrendering to God completely is not done in an instant. Things that are lifelong can only be surrendered to God in a lifetime. Going through the process is of surrender to God can be painful but the blessings of God are worth it. God gives blessings, and then asks for them back so that He can combine them with His other resources and give back to you more abundantly. God is good, righteous, and holy.

l Fellowship e p s l Go Pastor Terry Davison

What do I want to be when I grow up? I still ask myself that question, after decades of professional vocational work. The apostle Paul tells us in First Corinthians, 13:11, “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” Paul’s admonition however was not for us to stop being youthful and inquisitive, but rather to learn to better rationalize that which life throws at us. More to the point, Paul teaches us to act more like Christ than self: to be likeminded in Christ: Romans 15:5 “Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus”. There is a pervasive mindset in our society that attributes to adulthood the end of learning: school’s out, and life begins…no more maturing, and no more development (and sadly, no more growing as a person). How often have we heard someone say, “I am what I am, and no one can change that”? In so stating, they are demanding that we expect nothing more from them in the future. I submit that the only thing worse than asking others to not look for improvement in us, is to not ask one’s self to improve. Biblical discipline is rooted in the concept of self improvement: growing each day into more of what and who we should be: and more like Christ in the process. Life can be a non-stop growing up process. Each of us can better ourselves if we so desire. In that endeavor, God gave us the powerful tools of prayer, Bible study, and association with one another that empower us to learn and to achieve. Are we still growing up?

Using Eco-Driving Skills toBySave Gas Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

Each time you fill up at the pump you’re not just draining your bank account, you’re also taking a bite out of the environment. If you’re looking to increase your car’s fuel economy in order to save some money and maybe even the planet, you may want to adopt some gas-saving practices from the eco-driving (or “energy-efficient”) movement. Eco-driving means using driving techniques to increase gas mileage in non-hybrid vehicles by reducing bad habits and car functions that might lower mileage. Simple Eco-Driving Tactics You Can Use Every Day Be smooth with both the accelerator and the brakes. Drive with a less aggressive attitude. Don’t race up to stoplights or stop signs and then slam on the brakes — let your car’s momentum do most of the non-fuel-burning work, and then re-accelerate slowly and gently again. Drive the speed limit or just below. Don’t go so slowly that you become a road hazard or create frustration for other drivers, but just driving the posted limit instead 3-5 miles per hour over it can boost mileage. In fact, for every 5 mph you go over 50 mph, it’s the same as adding about 25 cents to the cost of each gallon of gas. Set the cruise control. One of the central rules of eco-driving is maintaining a steady, even speed. Your cruise control will help prevent unnecessary speeding up and braking and keep your speed from slowly creeping higher. Avoid excessive idling. In the driveway, a parking lot, or even a drive-through, turn off the engine if you think you’ll be stopped more than 30 seconds. Do not, however, turn it off at regular stoplights — doing so makes it hard to safely get out of harm’s way if there’s a sudden problem. Make Your Car More Fuel-Efficient Keep your engine well-maintained. Regular tune-ups can greatly improve your mileage. Remove excess weight. Don’t carry a lot of junk in your trunk or leave toolboxes, toys, or other unnecessary items in the back seat. Reduce aerodynamic drag. If you’re not using them, take off things like luggage or bike racks – aerodynamic drag is one of the chief factors in lowering gas mileage. Properly inflate tires. Never overinflate tires, but just keeping them filled at the high end of the recommended pressure will help reduce road friction. Use a low-weight, light-viscosity oil. It will improve your engine performance, but stay within the factory recommended weight and viscosity. For Advanced Mileage Savings Get a fuel consumption display. If your car doesn’t already have one, installing an FCD is a great way to raise your mileage awareness. It shows you just how much gas you’re using as you speed up or slow down and is one of the best tools for making you a more conscientious eco driver. Turn off the air conditioning and roll up the windows. Yes, it sounds sweaty, but if you’re really serious about saving gas, not only turning off the AC but also keeping the windows up (to reduce drag at speeds over 40 mph) will raise your mileage. If you need some air, turn on the vent and crack your driver and right rear windows an inch to create a cross-flow. Seek out alternate driving routes. If you have the time, look for more level roads with less traffic and fewer stops and sharp turns. You don’t have to go to extremes, or get 75 mpg to make a difference. Just be a more aware driver and eliminate some bad, gas-guzzling driving habits, and you’ll be doing both the environment and your pocketbook a big favor. –
