Sales Tax Holiday set for this weekend

Local residents can save money on Back To School supplies during the annual state sales tax holiday. However, it is not a holiday everywhere. Counties and cities can ‘opt out’ of participating by submitting a letter to the Missouri Department of Revenue. (See list of participating local city and county entities after the article) Missouri’s annual sales tax holiday begins tomorrow, Friday, Aug. 2 and runs through Sunday, Aug. 4. During this time, the state sales tax will not be assessed on certain purchases, including school supplies, personal computers and some clothing. Local governments can also participate in the holiday and increase the savings for shoppers during the holiday. “The annual sales tax holiday is a perfect opportunity to get some or all of your back-to-school shopping under way and save some money,” said John Mollenkamp, acting director of the Missouri Department of Revenue. “When local governments participate in the holiday, the savings can add up to as much as 8 or 9 percent.” The state sales tax will not be charged on the following items during the holiday: Clothing that does not have a value of more than $100. Eligible clothing includes standard items of apparel worn on or about the body, and includes footwear. It also includes material to make school uniforms or other school clothing. It does not include accessories such as watches, jewelry, handbags, handkerchiefs, umbrellas, scarves, ties, headbands and belt buckles. School supplies, not exceeding $50 per purchase, which are used in a standard classroom for educational purposes. School supplies include textbooks, notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, crayons, art supplies, rulers, book bags, backpacks, handheld calculators, chalk, maps and globes. School supplies do not include CD players, headphones, sporting equipment, portable telephones, copiers or other office equipment.

Personal computers that don’t cost more than $3,500 and computer peripheral devices that don’t exceed $3,500. A personal computer can be a laptop, desktop or tower computer system which consists of a central processing unit, random access memory, a storage drive, display monitor, keyboard and other related devices. Peripheral devices include items such as a disk drive, memory module, CD drive, microphone, modem, motherboard, mouse, speakers, printer, scanner, sound card or video card. Computer software is considered a school supply and is free from sales tax if its value is less than $350. The sales tax exemption is commonly referred to as the Back-to-School Sales Tax holiday because it occurs near the

beginning of the traditional school year for most students. Any person -- including those who live outside of the state of Missouri – who makes a qualified purchase, may participate in the holiday. An individual does not have to be a student or be purchasing for a student to participate. Local counties that will not participate in the 2013 sales tax holiday include Audrain, Boone, Pike and Shelby. County sales tax in these locations will still be collected on the sale of qualifying holiday items. Local cities that will not participate in the 2013 sales tax holiday include Columbia and Paris. City sales tax in these locations will still be collected on the sale of qualifying holiday items.

Gotta Love Them Boys


It is that time.. It IS that time - it is almost ‘Back To School’ time. It is the time when we share our most privileged and loving possessions - our children - with others. It is a time when we expect our schools to educate, nourish, discipline, teach, extoll, encourage, and basically mold our children in their education endeavors. To do this takes an ecosystem like no other. It has to have a strong head (school board and administration) and a healthy body (teachers, food service, and staff members including custodians, bus drivers, administrative assistants, etc.) Local schools (Paris and Madison) are having their school registration day on Thursday, Aug. 8. This is a great time for old friends to meet at the school and maybe for some new friendships to start. The schools are sitting ready after the custodians have worked hard all summer long to make sure that every building is ready for the arrival of students on that first day. Now with that being said, it is time for all of us to remember that learning does not end once the students have left school. It is


our responsibility, even as a community to help learning continue. Parents - every opportunity in life can be a teaching opportunity. You did great working with your children, now that they are in school it is important for us to continue the lessons we started when they were young. Teachers - we place our most important treasure in your hands to help us mold them into educationally sound adults. Obviously our younger generations are in good hands and the schools in Monroe County have stellar teachers as witnessed by the year after year Schools of Distinction awards. If it takes a village to raise a child then it takes a community to educate our children. To our area schools and students - good luck this year! Have a great week!

When I was growing up the girls definitely outnumbered the boys. Then to top it off the oldest was a boy and the other one didn’t come along until after my parents had three girls which put a big age difference between them. So growing up I did not have the pleasure of experiencing the typical boy stuff including their interesting conversations and constant bodily noises. But due to having three wonderful boys of my own, I have gotten to see and hear first hand how very different boys can be from girls in their thinking and acting. I have had a lot of interesting, to say the least, experiences raising them and just when I think I have seen and heard it all they seem to surprise me. Let me share a couple of them with you: *One day I was folding the laundry and having the kids having the kids put it away. When I gave my youngest boy his clothes to put away he came back and told me

As Time Goes By

Time For Road Work and Upgrades It was built in the 1950’s to last for 20 years and the underlying original pavement is basically worn out. The cost of rebuilding the 200 miles of Highway 70 between St. Louis and Kansas City is estimated at between 2 and 4 billion dollars that the state does not have. Even keeping Missouri roads in decent shape is getting harder because of rising maintenance costs at the same time that gas taxes to fund repairs are declining. Missouri Roads, like all other in the U.S., are critical for moving people and goods and services. Good roads are a part of staying competitive in the international marketplace and are a critical factor when companies decide where to locate new businesses. If we can match the present need for road and bridge repair and updates with the concurrent search for increased employment of American workers, a long-term win/ win situation can result for the economy and for our standard of living. If for a change Federal and State leaders can cooperate in finding the ways to find these necessary repairs and updates for roads, bridges and other infrastructure needs, we can put millions of Americans to work while we are getting it done and keeping it current.

there wasn’t any room in his drawers. Okay, that made me a little bit leery because the last time they said this I found all kinds of interesting things in their drawers. I went into their room to see what was going on. I’m not sure how my son even knew there wasn’t enough room in his drawers because I could not even open any of them to see what was going on. After a lot of tugging, pulling, shaking, and jolting I managed to open some of the drawers. In one drawer I found four to five shirts that were suppose to be hanging in the closet. Now it wasn’t that I was irritated because they weren’t hanging up but more so I was irritated because they were all dirty. And I am not talking about a little spot, but I am talking about they looked like they

90 Years Ago Aug. 3, 1923 School Superintendents Will Help: Mrs. Julia Mason represented Monroe County in a convention of county school superintendents at Kirksville the first of the week. Those present, she reports, were planning to have schools in their counties give entertainments in September for the benefit of the Mark Twain Memorial Park fund. They want Missouri to become as famous for her great literary characters as for hound dogs and funny stories, says Mrs. Mason. To State Fair: Harvey Jackson , student in the vocational agriculture class of the Paris high school, was the only Monroe County boy to take advantage of the offer of a free trip to the State fair at Sedalia, made by Mrs. Julia C. Mason, county school superintendent. Harley, by taking the examinations given by Mrs. Mason last Saturday, is entitled to a trip to the state fair, with all expenses paid. The examinations were supposed to be competitive, the boy making the highest grade receiving the appointment. Dance At Clubhouse: A dance for club members or their legally invited guests only will be given at the Paris Country Club Friday evening. The Super Six orchestra of Monroe City will furnish the music. Offered Schools In Porto Rico: Misses Corneil Hall and Ellen Nolen, of Paris, received notice from the War Depart-

ment at Washington, Saturday, of their election to positions in schools in the island of Porto Rico. Miss Hall declined because she had already accepted a position as head of the History department at Griggsville, Illinois. 75 Years Ago Aug. 4, 1938 New Boatner Plan: Dr. D. N. Boatner stated Wednesday that he and his brother, Dr. Howell Boatner of Springfield, probably would try a new plan for the Henry Boatner Courtesy Award at Paris next winter. Since the original idea was to honor boys and girls who were thoughtful towards elderly people, why not let elderly people make the nominations? Dr. Boatner said that he and his brother probably would answer this question by inviting all people 65 years old or over to write letters in which they would give the names of boys and girls who had been courteous to them, and in which they would mention some of the helpful things. Broke Record on Getting Returns: County Clerk Frank Wingate and his deputy, Guy Brooks, broke all previous records in getting the unofficial vote posted in front of the courthouse Tuesday evening, by getting all precincts in the total posted by 9:20. The full 28 precincts, with occasional sub-totals, were gathered from all over the county and posted before the crowd estimated at 2,500, in slightly over two hours. An added service Wingate provided was an announcement of the

the outdoors is one big toilet? You would not believe how many times this issue comes up. Okay, I can maybe understand if you have to go really bad and there is not a bathroom in sight but this is not the case with my boys. One time I was sitting in my bedroom looking out the window and there was my son who was not more than 6 feet from the house personally watering the grass. When I called him in and asked him why he didn’t just come in and use the bathroom he tried to say he had to go really bad and it was too far away. Well, of course I wasn’t buying that excuse because he was right next to the house so he tried to change his story. He then said he couldn’t make it ALL the way inside because his foot and his leg were hurting. Now I know good and well there was absolutely nothing wrong with his foot or leg and I also knew that he just did it because he wanted to and chances are he is going to do it again. Gotta love them boys!!! Thank God for boys because life would be way too dull without them!!!!



As we venture a little further away from home this summer, it is hard not to notice that many of our roads are in pretty poor condition. We are apparently not the only area of the U.S. that has roads with pavement in poor condition and which will require repair or replacement. Many of these roads with “advanced deterioration” have ruts and potholes of large cracks that lead to increased fuel cost and repairs for many drivers. Federal Highways Administration data reveals that only 38 percent of major roads in the U.S. are in “good” conditions and 12 percent of America’s bridges are structurally flawed. Even states with generally good roads have some pavement and bridges that need serious repair and upgrades. The funding for roads and bridges is not nearly adequate for the repairs and upgrades needed. About 85 billion is estimated to be required each year to improve roads and bridges. We are spending about half of that amount nationally each year. In Missouri, the Department of Transportation advises that Interstate Highway 70 need to be rebuilt from the ground up because it has outlived it’s designed life.


had worn these clothes during a mud shower. I think I could have managed to tolerate the dirty shirts but it was when I pried my way into the sock and underwear drawer that took me to THAT level. First, there were at least eight single socks in there that definitely needed to be put through the washer not one time but several times. Then I noticed in the corner a super hero who was not looking all that super. That super hero was on a pair of dirty under wear. I couldn’t believe it. It is one thing having a dirty sock or shirt shoved in the drawer but dirty underwear? Really? So I pulled it out and started giving my sons a lecture but then noticed yet another pair of dirty underwear, and another and another. Yes, you counted right. There were four pair of dirty underwear in their drawers. The icing on the cake was the night before I was doing laundry and they told me they didn’t have any dirty underwear or socks. Gotta love them boys! *What is the fascination that boys have with going to the bathroom outside? I am beginning to think my boys believe

Assisting Wingate and Brooks in setting the new record were Sheriff Wilkes, Treasurer Lon Jackson, Si Colborn, Prof. M. D. Thomas and Bob Sproul. Not only was a new record set locally, but Monroe was the first county in the state to have its vote completed. Usually it is toward midnight or after before the total vote is in. 50 Years Ago Aug. 1, 1963 Oldtimers Ballgame Saturday Night: A team composed of old time ball players will play the older boys Khoury League in a benefit game at the Paris Fairgrounds Saturday night starting at 7:30. No admission will be charged but a free will offering will be taken. The money will go to help buy uniforms for the Khoury League. The old timers to play will be Billy T. Mitchell, J.R. White, Vivian Troy, Charles Garnett, Snowball Long, Johnny Houchins, Harry Rouse, Wayne Atterberry, Post Shearer, Floyd Comstock, Rufus Bunch, Buck Robinson, Ray Delaney, Jim Cupp and John Hickey. Pitched No Hit Game: Gary Havens pitched a no hit game for the Khoury League against Montgomery City last Wednesday night at the Paris Fairgrounds. He got good backing from his team mates and won 11-1. The one run was made on a walk and errors. This is his second no hit game, pitch-

ing one for the high school team. On Friday night playing with Shelbyville Kenny Darnell pitched a 1 hit game and won by 16-1. Paris Jaycees to Hold Peanut Day: The members of the Paris Junior Chamber of Commerence announce this week they will hold their annual Peanut Day at Paris, in the business district, Saturday, August 10. Peanuts will be for sale that day in the business district, with prizes in each bag, donated by Paris merchants. The Jaycees also announced that next week at the Paris Fall Festival they will have a “dunking stand,” at which those who want to test their aim may be able to cause some of their friends to get a dunking in a large tank of water. 25 Years Ago Aug. 4, 1988 IDA will host golf tourney: The Industrial Development Authority of Paris will host an industry appreciation golf tournament on Wednesday, August 10 at the Mark Twain Country Club. Eighteen participants from business and industry in the surrounding areas will be competing in the tournament which will be followed at 6 by a barbeque for the golfers, their guests and the members of the IDA. Contel is donating the golf trophies, the Paris National Bank and Noel Seeds will provide golf towels and Agnew Funeral Home will furnish the meal. Charlie Mitts and Jim Reinhard will do the cooking.

Madison Homemakers hear European presentation

The Madison Homemakers Club met on Thursday, July 25, at the Community Center. There were 21 members present along with guests Kris Elsbury, Sandy Frank, and Kate Evans who became a new member. The devotional “Daily Prayers Will Diminish Your Cares” was read by Dorothy Carter. Roll call was answered with “What the Fourth of July means to me. The club trip this year is planned for Oct. 16 to see “A Second Helping: The Church Basement Ladies Sequel” at the Maples Repertory Theater. Final arrangements will be made at the September meeting.

The club voted to make a $100 donation to the Madison school for supplies this fall. President Karen Forsyth read a thank you note from Angela Purdy who is the scholarship winner this year. The drawing for the hostess gift was won by Elsie Mallory. Sandy Frank gave the program on her trip to Germany and Italy. She remarked on the beautiful paintings on the outside of buildings. Owners of these historic buildings are required to keep up the paintings. She visited a monastery built about 1330. It is still in operation, being run by self-sufficient monks who run a hotel, brewery, etc.

Another favorite was Sorrento, Italy, famous for their furniture making and Limoncello, a liqueur made famous in southern Italy. She showed pictures of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, which was covered by 13-20 ft. of ash from a volcano eruption in 79 A.D. The remains were unearthed 1500 years later, showing some things remarkably preserved. She also visited the Isle of Capri. The meeting adjourned to meet on Aug. 22 in the west room of the Community Center. Refreshments of cupcakes, melon cubes, and soda were served by hostesses Karolyn Kay Thomas and Dorothy Carter.

Weather permitting, Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 7, 8, MoDOT crews will be working on sealing operations on Route Y from MO 151 in Monroe County to MO 22, in Audrain County.

During the sealing operations, Route Y will be closed from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., with some areas of the road open to local traffic only. Through traffic must use alternate routes during this time.

Crews and equipment will be working close to traffic, so please use extra caution if you must travel through the work zone area. This work is weather dependent and could be delayed or rescheduled.

Captain James E. Wilt, commanding officer of Troop B, Macon, announces Troop B officers will join other Missouri law enforcement agencies in the “Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over” enforcement campaign from Aug. 16, through Sept. 2. During this time period, troopers will be conducting DWI enforcement programs in the Troop B area that will include DWI saturations and a sobriety checkpoint. Consequences of

drunk driving include jail time, loss of driver license or being sentenced to the use of ignition interlock systems. Financial effects could include increased insurance rates, attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work, and the potential of losing one’s job or job prospects. When family, friends, and co-workers find out, violators can also face tremendous personal embarrassment and humiliation. “Drinking and driving is simply not worth all

the consequences,” stated Captain Wilt. “The Missouri State Highway Patrol will continue to vigorously enforce Missouri DWI laws.” The Patrol encourages motorists and watercraft operators to protect themselves by making sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint and everyone in the vessel is wearing an approved life jacket.

Agape house has electrical problems

A recent power surge associated with a storm caused minor damage to the dishwasher, thermostats and emergency lights at Agape House of Vandalia. Each of these items is being checked and repaired. As a result of this problem, the board of directors, in its July 16 meeting, decided to make flashlights available in each guest room. In other business, the manager reported 79 guests, including 17 children, had stayed at the house in June. Nicole Cropp of Curryville, assisted by Alberta Cropp, stayed at the house during the manager’s vacation recently. Further assistance was given by Veanna Snodgrass and her family.

SENIOR NEWS Sixteen Travel andBySafety Tips Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

Traveling can be quite an adventure and fun for the whole family, but it can also present challenges. Being prepared is a good way to ensure a safe trip. Before you set off on your next weekend trip to the country or excursion around the world, here are a few tips to help keep you out of harm’s way. Prepare Before You Leave Protect your home. -Take steps to make your home safe while you’re away. - Carry the minimum number of valuables. Expensive-looking jewelry and accessories can bring the wrong kind of attention. If possible, travel with only one or two credit cards. -Talk to your doctor or health provider. If traveling abroad, vaccinations may be recommended. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has extensive information on its website. -Copy important documents. Make and keep copies of your passport, driver’s license, and credit cards. - Travel light. You will be able to move quicker and less likely to set your luggage down and leave it unattended. -Consider travel insurance. If planning a trip far in advance or one that is expensive, you may want to be covered in case of an emergency cancelation. - Bring a basic first aid kit. Include bandages, iodine, mosquito repellent, sunscreen, alcohol packets, and motion sickness and diarrhea medicines. Make sure that your prescription medicines are filled properly and labeled accurately. -Pack a small flashlight. You may suddenly end up in the dark and find yourself in unfamiliar surroundings. - Check with your cellular carrier. Cellular providers offer supplemental services and plans so customers can use their cell phones outside the United States. Stay Out of Harm’s Way -Avoid being pickpocketed. Keep your wallet in your front pocket. If carrying a purse or bag, wear the shoulder strap across your chest and walk with the bag away from the curb to avoid drive-by purse snatchers. - Remain calm if mugged. It is best to and give up your valuables. -Bring along updated photos of your children. You made need them in case you become separated. -Be discreet about personal information. Do not discuss travel plans, your room number, or any other personal information in public within earshot of strangers. -Do not flash your money or passport in public. You don’t want to make yourself a target. - Stay away from stray cats and dogs. While they may seem friendly, they can carry diseases. -Steer clear of unmarked taxicabs. They are not licensed and can be dangerous. Even though travel can have many challenges, don’t be overwhelmed when planning your next trip. A little common sense and good preparation goes a long way towards a safe, enjoyable journey.

“I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth” - Job 19:25. Greetings from FaithWalk Ministries, Bishop Harold G. Long, “I Love You Lord Today” - FaithWalk Choir Opening prayer led by Minister Deb Adams Opening Scripture was read by Bro. Michael Thompson-Titus 3:3-7 “Whatever You Need, God’s Got It” - FaithWalk Choir Offering service was led by Minister Kelley Ballenger. Our vision and mission statement was read in unison stating that FaithWalk is “Building and Sustaining strong communities by breaking the cycle of addictive failures.” “Bless The Lord” FaithWalk Choir Bishop Long spoke about the purpose of God. Isaiah 14:24-27. Your purpose is not in your control, but you have the privilege of receiving from it. Every thought of God is His word that will not return void. You are a thought of God! God will break every enemy in your life because they are against His purpose for you. God’s purpose cannot be stopped, it will stand! Romans 4:17 God will quicken you for your purpose. Stop trying to live in dead issues.

On Sunday, July 28, church services began with the pastor giving an opening prayer. Regular church meetings of the week were announced and all were encouraged to attend. Announcement included: Camp Cedar Crest Kids Camp had 108 campers and 17 decisions for Christ this past week. Remember to pray for the youth as they are coming back from their mission trip to Canada. Men’s Breakfast is on August 10 at 7:30 a.m. Picture makeup day is on Aug. 27, see Dan Redington for details. Praises to Him and the Mountain Airs will perform at Camp Cedar Crest on September 2021 with all proceeds going to Camp Cedar Crest improvements. This week’s message was entitled ‘Be Happy, Holy, and Humble’; and came from Psalm 119:18. Blessed is happiness with God leading the way. God does not bless worldly happiness because it comes short of His divine holy standards. Living a life of sincerely following God’s Word will bless a believer’s life. To live like this a believer must give their whole heart to God. This includes the spirit, mind, soul, and body. It all belongs to God and all must serve God. Purity in life is important to God. The world teaches that purity is an old fashioned word not to be followed. Who do you listen to, the world or God? Purity is knowing what God has commanded and desires of you and then doing it. This is easier said than done. It takes great focus and determination to try and follow God perfectly. God’s standards are pretty high.

Ephesians 1:11-12 God works all things out in our lives according to the counsel of His own will. God is looking for “will” worshippers who will worship Hm no matter what. Isaiah 14:26-27, Daniel 4:8-16, 25, 36-37. Recognize and yield to the Spirit of our holy God. Sunday Night Message-”Who Am I In Christ?” 1Corinthians 5:17, 1Peter 2:5-7 Our Chief Cornerstone has perfectly aligned me with heaven. We-are elect and precious because Jesus is the chief cornerstone of us, the new creation. Psalm 118:22-24, 1Peter 2:8-10 We are chosen from the holy seed... having the same spiritual DNA of Jesus; we are priests of royalty under the High Priest-causing us to come boldly to the throne of grace; we are holy; we don’t give dignified praises to God. We have an endorsement to proclaim praises to God. Who am I in Christ? I’m everything that God has called me be and I have the entitlement, right, and privilege to use everything he has for me, because I am joint heir and heir with Jesus Christ in the family of God. Everyone is welcome to worship with us: Tuesday and Thursday at 7 p.m., and 10:30 a.m., and 7 p.m., on Sundays.

Not being pure before God brings shame to a person’s name. Shame is another word the world hates to use. It gives the idea of sin and absolute truth or standards. Are you hearing the world or God? Shame is removed when you are clean and right before God. When you know and follow all of God’s commands you can praise Him from the heart for the heart will be clean. The psalmist ends asking God not to forsake him or not to thrown him away. Being thrown away by God is what every man deserves for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. No person can do what this psalmist desires in their own strength or desire. But there is Good News. Jesus changes everything. Through Jesus you can accomplish al that the psalmist so strongly desired in his life. Jesus paid the price for you so you do not have to be a slave to sin and death. Jesus makes believers perfect through His sacrificial blood. Jesus gives a new heart that can follow God in the leading and strength of the Holy Spirit. Jesus gives the desire and ability to learn and follow God’s Word. Jesus takes the shame away from a person’s name and writes that name in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Jesus puts praise to God in your mouth. Jesus lets you know that as a child of God you are not forsaken. Jesus shows the love of God to mankind. Jesus has been showing God’s love for thousands of years. Follow Jesus and make a difference by changing things around you for His glory.

The Madison Grace United Methodist Church held worship Sunday, July 28. Pastor Bonnie Sudsberry gave the message, “Teach Us” with Luke 11: 1-13 as the scripture. She also gave the Little Sermon, “Ostrich Eggs.” There were two specials: Jimmy Legrand read, “Just Think,” and Shelby Arnold and Isabelle Weisner sang a duet,

“The Man in the Mirror.” Monday, Aug. 5, Adult Bible Study is at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7, Administrative Council will meet at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, Fellowship Dinner will be at 11:45 a.m. The Festival of Sharing books are here to use in making up kits for mission.

The congregation and the choir enthusiastically welcomed the return of Kathy Miller at the organ and Brenda Ensor at the piano, after a brief absence. George Bright, Jr. gave the invocation. Cheryl Gholson led the choir in their special, “Trust and Obey”. Charles Garnett gave the camp report. Within the Association, there were 110 youth attending and 150 attended children’s camp. Including both camps 20 youth and children made a profession of faith. Charles also reported that the kitchen crews served 2500 meals. John Mitchell gave the children’s sermon. “Do you know about Jacob?” His father was Isaac and his brother was Esau who sold his birthright to Jacob. When Esau found that Jacob had tricked their father and received the blessing he was furious. Jacob left because he was fearful for his life. He fled to Haran. On the way he stopped for the night and dreamed of a ladder going into heaven. God blessed him and changed his name to Israel. Later the children went to children’s church led by DeDee Mitchell and Carice Gravotl. Rev. Hammond’s sermon was entitled “When Achan Broke Faith” from

Joshua 7:1-26. Walking by faith and trusting God brings challenges. Joshua had been given specific instructions by God how to destroy the walls of Jericho. Joshua instructed the people and they obeyed completely. After the fall of Jericho, God had instructed the people to destroy everything except the silver and gold and articles of bronze and iron which were to go in the Lord’s treasury. Achan broke faith by taking a beautiful robe and silver and gold and buried them in his tent. Because of Achan’s sin all of the people were affected. To continue to follow God’s Will they had to correct this abuse. Achan and his family suffered the consequences of disobedience. Today we must be obedient to God and correct the wrongs in our life. Announcements: (All events p.m. unless otherwise designated) Thursday, Aug. 1, Deacon’s meeting, 7; Sunday, Aug. 4, Communion 10:45 a.m. service; Saturday, Aug. 10, 4 p.m. – Wedding of Amanda Johannaber to Jensyn Angell at First Baptist Church, in Centralia; Sunday evening Aug.11, Revival Tour – Chris Day and Carl Christiansen. Sunday, Aug. 18, 2, baby shower for Cloe ­Billington.

Pastor Kenny’s message today was titled, “Emotions.” Scripture was taken from John 11:35 and 18: 1-12. Emotions are determined by the circumstances we are in. Emotions are also determined by how we react to something or a situation. We must put away our emotions and let God do with us what He wants to do with us. We need to listen to God and not allow the world to rule over us. Make your decisions based on what God wants and not what we want. Prayers for family of Nicholas Copenhaver, John Flowers, Larry DeOrnellis, Richard DeOrnellis, Dane Kendrick, Josie Rentschler, family of Tom Hayes, Madison Holmes, Mandy Clendenny, Marva Johnston, Susan Wilson and family, Carolyn Pearson, Beverly Wandry, Tom Riley expecting a new Great Grandchild, Sue, (friend of Katy Pugh), Ruth Conley, Jo Reynolds’ friend Tracy, children and staff preparing to return to school.

“ Quality Work at Reasonable Prices”


The Perry Christian Church worship service of Sunday, July 28, began with Arlen Provancha singing “The Wonder Of It All”. Pastor Todd gave the report of a very successful VBS. “Come, Thou Almighty King” was sung as the hymn of praise. “Happy Birthday” this week to Zabette Elam, Jill Lewellen and Lois Friday. “Cleanse Me” led to Call to Prayer. Joyce Winfree and the family of Tom Hayes are in our prayers. We will be remembering Mrs. Picard as she will have back surgery August 7. “Let the Words of My Mouth” was the response. Pastor Todd gave an invitation to share The Lord’s Supper. “Let Us Break Bread Together” was the Communion Hymn. The elders’ prayers were given by Arlen and Greg Harrison. Deacons were Nancy Seelow, Glenna Johnson, Warren Hetrick and Wyatt Lewellen “Stand Together” a Bible School song, was performed by the children. Jeanne Gay offered

the children’s moment by making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to illustrate that it takes several ingredients to form a sandwich as it does to make a perfect prayer. Luke 11:1-13 was read by Shirley Levings showing the different wording in Luke than the words we use in our worship from Matthew... Pastor’s sermon “Talking To God” speaking of how important prayer is and using the words that Jesus taught his disciples, we have a prayer model that will invite the Holy Spirit to enter our lives. It is important to pray for food to sustain us, to be humble and seek forgiveness, seek guidance from God and pray that we will not be lead into temptations that we cannot handle. Give thanks to God for those that pray for us. “When We All Get To Heaven” was the invitation. The benediction was given and singing “Take The Name Of Jesus With You” closed the service.

Common Core State Standards...

School will start soon in public schools across America and a controversy has arisen in connection with Common Core State Standards. What is Common Core State Standards, or CCSS? Common Core State Standards or CCSS a set of national K-12 content standards of Math and English language arts that are currently being implemented in 45 states and Washington D.C. When and who initiated them? In 2009 when states’ budgets were in peril, the opportunity was given to the states from the Federal Government, to compete for “Race to the Top Grants” and to apply for ‘No Child Left Behind Waivers” starting in 2011. Missouri did not receive grants but instead Governor Nixon signed on to CCSS site unseen; this was before the standards were even drafted. The Missouri Board of Education adopted the standards in 2010, again without any public discussion. Most local school boards or Superintendents have offered no public debate or voted on this action. The legislatures knew nothing of this fiat and no vote was ever taken. Many parents are unaware of this huge change in their child’s education. Ask your school board member or Superintendent if they have discussed the CCSS or voted or offered a public debate? What will this mandate cost? There are estimates that the need to upgrade to high tech computers and accommodate the assessments will cost as much as $16 Billion. Much of the burden will be placed on the states. Next week: How will CCSS effect private and home school education? Source:

Monroe County Appeal •


1st Annual CASA Superhero 5K a Success Superheroes of all ages gathered Saturday, July 27, 2013 to support Douglass Community Services- Court Appointed Special Advocates at the first annual CASA Superhero 5K at Riverview Park in Hannibal. On a beautiful, and unseasonably cool Saturday morning, more than 120 runners took off to give back to the local CASA Program. Cindy Powell’s Black Belt Karate Powerline performed after the race, followed by a helicopter landing by Air Evac Lifeteam 5 and the Hannibal Fire Department.

Members of the 501st Legion, a Star Wars costuming group, Quincy Exchange’s Time Out Teddy and Po the Kung Fu Panda were also in attendance. Paul Golian and Rachel Davis, both of Hannibal, were the overall men and women’s winners of the 5K, finishing the course in 20:09 and 24:22 respectively. Prizes were also awarded to age division winners, as well as best costumes. The event’s slogan, “Every child needs a hero, but abused children need superheroes”, reminded all

in attendance of the ability to be superheroes for these children by supporting the CASA program and learning more about becoming a CASA volunteer. Special thanks to major event sponsors, KHQA and the Riedel Foundation, and the countless businesses and volunteers that made this year’s event a success. About Douglass Community Services- CASA Program Proceeds from the CASA Superhero 5K will benefit the local CASA Program, which serves children in Marion,

Monroe and Ralls Counties who have been removed from their homes from abuse or neglect. CASA trains and sup-

ports volunteer advocates to represent these children’s best interests in court and other settings. More information

about the CASA Program can be found at www.nemocasa. org.

The fairground’s public campground will open by 9 a.m., this Thursday, Aug. 1, one week in advance of opening day of the 2013 Missouri State Fair. The 60-acre facility is located just west of the fairgrounds on Clarendon Road in Sedalia, offering a convenient and affordable option for visitors wanting to camp while visiting the state’s largest annual agriculture showcase. “Regardless of whether you prefer a tent or a recreational vehicle, our pubic campground can accommodate you,” Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe said. “Combine the camping option with our great prices and excellent entertainment and the 11-day State Fair is an affordable family vacation.” Unreserved campsite rentals will be offered on a first-come basis at a rate of $20 per day per vehicle or tent. The campground

office is located at the north campground entrance and accepts cash and major credit cards. More than 1,100 sites have electrical, water and sewer hook-ups, and more than 200 are equipped with 50/30/20 amp outlets; there are no 110-volt outlets. The campground also has three sewage-waste dump stations, restroom and shower facilities, and free Wi-Fi service, provided by I-Land Internet Services. A pedestrian underpass and admission gate are located between the campground and the fairgrounds. A daily admissions wristband is available for campers if they plan to make trips between the two grounds throughout the day. Campers may bring golf carts for use in the campgrounds, though the policy does prohibit the use of ATVs and UTVs this year.

For more information on rules and regulations, visit the plan-your-visit section of the Fair’s website. This year all fairgoers can once again sign up to receive the Nixle text messaging service provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
