Paris Senior Center celebrates Day of Caring On Thursday Sept. 26, the Senior Citizens Community Center was once again blessed. It is that time of year again, time for the United Way of the Mark Twain Area’s Day of Caring. The Day of Caring is when dedicated volunteers help local not for profit agencies that are in need of assistance. “Our senior center has had the pleasure of having the same group of men from NEMO Electric Power Cooperative help us for the last three years,” said Senior Center Director Tara Sheffield. “Some of the projects they have done in the past are building shelves, painting, attaching a sign on our building, and building a fence. With their help this year we were able to build a roof over the front of our building. Their skills, along with the help of the county’s road and bridge department’s bobcat and boom allowed us to complete much needed repairs and improvements that we would not be able to afford under our own budget. This is a day when we can come together and

hopefully make a difference in the lives of those we serve.” Sheffield noted that the event doesn’t just benefit the senior center; it’s also fun for the volunteers. “They look forward to it every year,” added Director Sheffield. “They are very engaged in the projects they work on and get a huge amount of gratification and satisfaction in doing a project well-done.” But the help didn’t end there either. Once again this year, UMB Bank of Paris volunteered for the Day of Caring with the senior center. The employees delivered meals on wheels to our local homebound residents. This year, due to work commitments, they were not able to help on the actual Day of Caring but, very much wanted to still be involved. So, they delivered meals on an earlier day when they could all volunteer. The Senior Center staff thanks everyone that helped them for taking their time to come out and help serve our local community.

Day of Caring Helpers Donna and John Turner

“I would encourage all of our county residents to look at what has been done and think of a way that you too can pay it forward,” said Director Sheffield. “I would love to have a record breaking amount of volunteers next year for the Day of Caring.” The United Way of Mark Twain Area is involved with the senior center and NECAC in Paris. The help they receive from United Way can sometimes be the

Monroe County Appeal •




Separating the Eaters from the Cheaters One of the productive things that might be an opening for agreement in the Congress might be to clarify who should be entitled to basic government benefits like food stamps and disability payments. At the same time steps can be taken to insure that those not entitled to food stamps or a disability rating are identified, taken off of the benefit rolls and prosecuting if necessary. Looking first at food stamps, the U.S. House voted last week to take $40 billion from the federal food stamp program over the next ten years which would leave an estimated 3.8 million people to go hungry. While Representative Paul Ryan complains that the safety net program has become a “hammock that lulls able bodied people to a life of dependency and complacency”, that some refused to cut the $20 billion to large agribusiness and large farm corporations in farm subsidies didn’t have the same reaction from Ryan. Finding these lazy profiteers who take this huge food stamp benefit that averages about $4.45 per day rather than work is not so easy. Almost seventy percent of food stamp recipients are children, seniors and the disabled. A high percentage of the rest are unable to find work or are those who have given up trying after a long effort to find a job. So the House’s idea is that

all there able bodied freeloaders on food stamps for three months would have to work or do community service for 20 hours a week. That is, work at a job they couldn’t find in the first place or do some community service with the guys and gals on probation for a minor crime or another. This would be a happy group of workers welcomed with open arms by not for profit groups and cities and counties. There has to be a better way to feed the needy and boot the greedy. There is a recent spate of criticism by our friendly neighboring Senator from Oklahoma that there are people on disability who received these benefits by fraud or collusion of some kind. He claims Senate hearings have turned up this information and the blame is on dishonest applicants, perhaps some of their lawyers and some tax administrative Law Judges. Pass some laws that require post award checkups and screening to assure continuing disability. Turn the fraud cases over to the Prosecutor with some evidence of wrong doing. Make the case against reappointment or hiring of Law Judges who are not doing their jobs. It may even be possible to get our Senators and Representatives to talk to each other long enough to at least discuss who should be the eaters and what to do about the cheaters.

BY LISA TALTON CONTRIBUTING WRITER Our children-the next future leaders of this world. Wow! What a responsibility and opportunity we have as their parents. I have said this numerous times and will probably say it many times more, being a parent is one of the hardest tasks we will ever encounter. I wish people especially some of our younger men and women would really get a good, realistic picture of what it takes to be a parent before making decisions where the outcome could be them becoming parents before they are ready or mature enough. When they decide to get physical with a person they are opening up the possibility of becoming the mother or father to a child who will need them in ways they may not be ready for. In today’s society having a physical relationship with someone outside of marriage is common. It is no longer the decision “should I wait until I get married” but instead “how long (days, weeks, months etc.) should I wait before I do it.” You rarely ever hear the “a” word. It is probably safe to say some teenagers if asked wouldn’t even know what the word

meant. Abstinence is a thing of the past for many. The media through television shows, movies and music have depicted relationships in such a way that it is no big deal to have sex before marriage. Even the sitcoms now usually have at least one character if not more who are having a physical relationship that is not within the walls of marriage. Then to top it off it is not uncommon to see the characters who are married having affairs. It is even to the point that when seeing a commercial for pregnancy tests the person is not always wearing a wedding band. This might not seem like a big deal to some but I believe it has played a big part in the breakdown of families. We are seeing more and more young ladies getting pregnant with young men they didn’t take the time to think the relationship through with. They

vice versa-it would be easier weeding out the wrong men/ women and would probably result in less heart breaks. Now do some people get married and still have problems? Of course they do but at least time was taken, a commitment was given and things were a little more thought out. I know it is difficult when we have strong feelings for a person and a lot of us think it won’t happen to us. I know some of us parents didn’t practice abstinence so we think we don’t have a right to suggest it to our children. I don’t agree with that. We can and we should. We need to tell them they are worth so much more than a good feeling and that the good feeling doesn’t last forever but a baby will. And not only can a baby come from this type of relationship but so can diseases and low self worth. They need to know abstinence is still an option no matter what the world is telling them. Again being a parent is a tough gig and our children count on us to train them in the way they should go. If a person is not ready to take on that responsibility then maybe they shouldn’t take on the responsibility of being in a physical relationship either. Remember this is just a thought.



Dear Editor, I would like to take this opportunity to request, inform and maybe even beg the driving public to please consider the use of headlights as a possible “Life and Death” issue. Last week, we as bus drivers along with the precious children we transport and you as the driving public, which includes students driving to school along with the passengers in these vehicles were faced with the thickest fog of this school year. We all met people who just appeared in front of us out of the fog with NO headlights on. This strikes fear into the heart of a bus driver and hopefully into your heart too. I am pleading with you as responsible drivers to please use your headlights when anything visibility reducing is going on. These times would include fog, snow, rain, dusk and dawn where it it light enough to see but maybe not to be seen, and those times when someone is driving in to the sun making it hard to see what is coming at you. I would have lights on every day on every car if I could. We are required by law to have our headlights on whenever we are transporting children. All of us are required by law to have our headlights on whenever we have conditions that require the use of our windshield wipers. The reason is because you are less likely to hit something you can see. Maybe that small action would save one life or one injury. Also we all know how preoccupied people are and being able to take action to avoid hitting someone who is not paying attention would be easier to do safely the quicker you can see them. So I am pleading with you to PLEASE turn on your headlights. Yes, you may sometime forget to turn them off and have to jump your car to start it, but consider it this way.........Jumping a dead battery verses visiting a family at the funeral home because of a dead person or even the hospital because of an injured one! This is a serious matter to me and I believe all bus drivers everywhere would endorse this opinion, but I will just sign it from me for now. Very Sincerely, Donna Turner Paris


didn’t ask themselves or their partner-Do you want to be connected to me for the rest of your life? But when one has a baby with another that is exactly what happens. Yes, some decide to skip out of their responsibilities but if doing the right thing they will forever be connected to that young man or young lady because they now have a child together. Most young men are not thinking at the time that they are increasing their probability of becoming a daddy when they choose to take the relationship to that level. Most are living in that moment not looking at the consequences. Then there are some young ladies who are believing the lie that if they go to that level with their boyfriend then he will love them more or even worse if they have their baby then the man will never leave them. One of the problems with this picture is that no one is really considering the needs of the possible child who could come from this choice. Another problem is most are not thinking about the diseases they could catch or the emotional scars that can be left. I know getting married doesn’t make everything perfect but I will say this: If a woman were to make a man commit to marrying her before giving herself to him or

Monroe County Appeal •

Edith Talley begins production of her annual special apple butter

IT’S APPLE BUTTER! Edith Talley has been busy preparing apple butter for the Maple Grove United Methodist Church’s Oct. 12 Lord’s Acre Sale. (Photo courtesy of David Eales)

Special to the Appeal by Denny Hollingsworth It’s been shipped overseas, sold for as much as $30 a pint, comes in limited quantities, only produced once a year, and as difficult as it is to produce and obtain, Edith Talley’s savory apple butter is well worth the effort. 
Mrs. Talley begins her apple butter creation in late September, in time for her church’s annual Lord’s Acre sale the next month.  This year the Maple Grove United Methodist Church, located at Rowena, Lord’s Acre dinner and sale is scheduled for Oct. 12. There will be a dedication service at 11 a.m., dinner at 11:30 and the auction is early in the afternoon.  
Edith only uses what she calls ‘true’ Jonathan apples for her apple butter; the pomaceous fruit comes from apple trees she and her husband 
Alfred hand-planted on their south-central Monroe County farm, and from the Dossey Rasmussen Orchard, in Moberly.  
“There are all kinds of Jonathan apples,” Mrs. Talley explains, “but I like the true Jonathans for making apple butter. A red tart apple is necessary for the taste I want and I think it makes the apple butter a prettier color.” 

She needs three to four bushels of apples to produce a minimum of 60 pints of the spicey treat. 
The recipe for Edith’s apple butter is not a bestkept secret. She says it came from the ladies of the former Olivet United Methodist Church more than 40 years ago. The Talleys attended the Olivet Church, that was located on Highway 15 south of Paris, until it was destroyed in a fire in 1983. One year women of the church made apple butter, using the recipe as a money-making project, and it was so well received Edith adopted it as her own.  
Mrs. Talley begins the recipe process by coring, quartering and cooking the non-peeled apples. The softened product is then ran through a ricer; the resulting pink applesauce is sugared and spiced with cinnamon, cloves and allspice, turning it a light brown in color. She thinks the allspice, a dried fruit of the Caribbean Pimenta dioica plant, is unique to her particular recipe because she knows of no one else that adds the pepperytasting powder to their apple butter.  
A century ago the next step the in the process would have included an outdoor wood fire and a copper kettle, but even


Holy Rosary KC Hall, Monroe City. The sale will be open Thursday, Oct. 17, 4 - 6:30 p.m. for “early birds” at a $1.00 donation. Friday’s hours are 3-7 p.m. Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon. There is no door charge Friday or Saturday. Everything, except otherwise marked, will be half price on Saturday morning.

though Edith is a traditionalist in many ways, she’s firmly planted in the 21st century, and uses an electric oven to cook her apple butter. 
 She takes the 12-pounds of applesauce, deposits it in a covered roaster pan and cooks it for three hours, stirring every 20 minutes. What results is a rich, dark reddish-brown, smooth apple butter with a hint of texture, exuding an inviting aroma of spices, and has a bold, piquant syrupy taste. The product is indeed exceptional and rare. There is no commercial apple butter that can match Mrs. Talley’s distinct quality.  It takes her several days to produce the annual quota of the much sought after treat.  
“I work on making the apple butter, generally in the mornings,” Mrs. Talley says, “and it’ll take several days to get it all done.”  Once it’s canned in glass jars, Edith takes two dozen pints to the Lord’s Acre sale. 
“I put a dozen out for people to eat at the dinner and then we auction another dozen during the sale,” she says.  
The apple butter has sold for as high as $30 a pint at the sale, and if a prospective buyer attends the Oct. 12 church fundraiser this year, and wins one of the dozen for sale, expect to pay no less than $20 for a jar of the delicious one-of-a-kind product, because there will be several bidders trying to take a pint home.  
 In addition to what she donates to the church, Edith says she prepares enough to sell a pint each to two dozen long-term customers, another few pints are reserved for shipping to sons Chris, in Oklahoma City, and Darrin, in Vienna, Virginia, but the Talleys’ son Brian, in Belmont, TX, is the big winner, he gets 12 pints because his birthday’s in October.  
All the boys, degreed engineers from what is now Missouri University of Science and Technology, in Rolla, enjoy their mother’s patented apple butter to such an extent that she has shipped it half way around the world.  
“Darrin’s lived in Mexico City and twice in Singapore,” Mrs. Talley said, “and I’ve shipped him several pints to both places.”  She thinks her boys prefer to eat the apple butter on toast and knows it’s popular on biscuits and dinner rolls. Surprisingly, Edith doesn’t usually eat her own apple butter – she’s not a fan of jam or jellies – but when she does she likes it on a slice of warm, home-made bread.    
(Editor’s note: Denny Hollingsworth uses a tablespoon and eats Edith’s apple butter out of the jar.)

Several of the upperclassman had already read his first book and were very eager to hear about Mr. Tanner’s second, which will be available from Amazon in a little over a week’s time. Mrs. Sara Jackson and her 7th and 8th grade students created a list of questions they would like to ask an author. She then submitted them to Mr. Tanner before coming. He addressed and elaborated on each question and then answered some spontaneous questions when finished. Each student received an individualized copy of the 1st chapter of The Wrath of a Vampire, and each student was invited to leave

an email address with Doug’s wife, Mrs. Christy Tanner who is the 6th-8th grade math and science teacher, at Middle Grove, so they could receive an announcement when the new book is available.

SENIOR NEWS Practicing Good ATVBy Nancy Safety Baca, State Farm® Agent

All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are a great way to have fun and enjoy the outdoors. But it’s important to remember they are not toys and operating one requires proper instruction and preparation. Whether you’re doing daily chores around the farm or weekend trail rides, make sure you take the proper steps to help keep you and your family safe when using an ATV. Before You Head Out Take a safety training course. ATVs can travel at more than 60 miles per hour and tip over very easily. Knowing how to stay safe while riding one is essential. Typical course topics include starting and stopping, quick turns, hill riding, emergency stopping and swerving, riding over obstacles, protective gear, local regulations, places to ride, and environmental concerns. The All-Terrain Vehicle Safety Institute® offers safety training courses around the country. Wear protective gear. A helmet, boots, goggles, gloves, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt or jacket will help protect against cuts and other injuries. Don’t carry passengers. Most ATVs are designed for one person at a time. Carrying a passenger can make them very difficult to control and be very dangerous. Maintain proper maintenance. A pre-ride checklist can help make sure your ATV is functioning properly and safe to drive. The fuel and oil, tires, brakes, steering, chain, radiator, and battery are a few things you’ll want to consider checking. Check your insurance. Make sure it is up-to-date. Contact your local State Farm agent if you need information about insuring your ATV. On the Trail Carry a communication device. A cell phone or walkietalkie is good to have along in the event of an emergency, especially if riding alone. Ride at proper speed. ATVs can be unstable and difficult to maneuver when driven too fast for conditions. To avoid flipping, maintain proper speed for the terrain, especially on uneven ground. Also be cautious when approaching hills, turns, and obstacles. No tricks or stunts. They might look fun and easy on TV, but they are extremely dangerous and best left to the experts. Most injuries occur when ATVs are operated improperly. Avoid drugs and alcohol. They can greatly impair judgment and reaction time and may lead to serious accident or injury. Drive in appropriate settings. ATVs are not designed to be driven on paved roads. Doing so can be dangerous and is where many fatalities occur. Stay off-road and operate only on safe terrain. Children and ATVs Never let children drive adult ATVs. Children under 16 are twice as likely to be injured riding adult ATVs than those who operate youth ATVs. If you allow your child to ride an ATV, make sure you follow the manufacturer’s minimum age recommendation warning label. Determine your child’s readiness. Operating an ATV requires the rider to recognize and react to all sorts of potential hazards. Factors to consider include the physical, social, emotional, and motor development of your child, as well as the ability to make sound decisions. The ATV Safety Institute has a safety booklet (PDF) that includes a readiness checklist to help you make an informed decision about your child’s readiness. Closely monitor. Children on ATVs should be supervised at all times to make sure they are operating them safely. If not, you may want to reconsider their ability and judgment to safely operate an ATV. Educate yourself and your child. Make sure you both have proper training on how to safely operate an ATV. An ATV injury prevention checklist (PDF) can help you get started. No matter what your age, riding level, or years of experience operating an ATV, it is always smart to be prepared and remember basic safety rules. There’s no reason why off-roading can’t be an enjoyable experience for everyone. - See more at: other-vehicles/practice-atv-safety/#sthash.g9k4pYt3.dpuf

The new covenant was given to us with Christ’s willingness to die on the cross for our sins. With Christ in our life we are no longer bound to the judgment or regulations and broken promises of God’s people in the past. We find healing with Christ in our circumstances and forgiveness for our sins. Because of our life with Christ we can throw off past sin and “run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Jesus’ sacrifice will carry us through any trouble we face.

John Fonville “I Feel Your Spirit” – sung by FaithWalk Choir Offering (Seed Planting) was directed by Minister Kelly Ballenger. Our Vision and Mission Statements were read in unison, declaring that FaithWalk Ministry’s constant goal is the work of, “Building and Sustaining Strong Communities by Breaking the Cycle of Addictive Failures.” “Press My Way Through” – sung by FaithWalk Choir Bishop Long’s message was entitled, “Furnished, Prepared, Ready!” St. Mark 14:12-15, 26 and Exodus 13:3, 14, 16-Jesus fulfilled what was being symbolized in the Old Testament. We are no longer under signs and symbols. Now the Holy Spirit writes the law of the LORD in our hearts. Verse 13 – Jesus sent the disciples to look for the unusual because they were used to the normal way of doing things. He wanted them to pay attention to the details that He gave to them in order to be furnished, prepared and ready. Verse 15-the disciples needed to make the room ready for what God designated to affect them for an eternity. Verse 26-some of the hymns they were singing are in Psalm 113 and 114.

Anything that you see with your natural eyes is made from invisible things (Genesis 1:1-26). God’s Word is unseen until He speaks it into the existence of the seen. All things that pertain to life and godliness is in God. He grants to us what we ask Him for and He will send it out from Himself into the earth realm where it can be seen. II Cor. 4:18 - What we can see is the subject of change. What we don’t see is more real than what we do see. We look at God through His Word. Nothing and no one is eternal but God. When God sends His Word, He sends Himself and the Word will not return back to Him different or empty.

l Fellowship e p s l Go

As the old saying goes, “you’re only as old as you feel.” Some days, I feel younger than others. Did you ever notice that when we’re young, there seems to be someone telling us we are not old enough for this job or for that privilege? But when we get older, we are often told we’re not young enough. It seems that we never hit that ‘just right’ age. Chronologically speaking, we naturally expect certain facets of life to develop with the passing of years. We know somewhat of that which we should expect, based on the experiences of our elders. Yet in our spiritual relationship with Christ, chronology (ergo time) is a much more fluid substance. I was an adult before I experienced salvation through Jesus Christ: so I was but an infant in an adult body, spiritually speaking. Scripture tells us that unless we become as a little child (Matthew 18:3), we cannot enter them Kingdom of Heaven. This passage

teaches us the necessity of being “born again”, allowing the old man to die, and a new man to be born in the process: learning afresh the values and virtues God desires for us to possess. Our spiritual life, along with our flesh, needs nutrition in order to grow: if we don’t eat, we don’t grow. However, we are all driven to food, and our bodies grow on par with our peers. If we neglect spiritual food, it does not show on the outside: and some may think us more fully developed than we are…but we know the difference, if we’re honest with ourselves. So as not to be deceived, those who know us well know the difference too. We must develop our spiritual being as well as the physical: we must study the Scriptures, fellowship with one another, and study to “show ourselves approved” in our daily walk. If we nurture the spirit within, we shall ever be spiritually healthy…and will be ever spiritually young.

COMMUNITY NEWS The Sunday, Oct. 6, World Communion Day began with Patti Grimmett playing “This Is My Father’s World” on the piano followed by Debbie Carey leading in song to “Joyful, Joyful”, “Them Church’s One Foundation”, “In Christ There is No East or West” and “Blest Be The Tie That Binds”. Pastor John Grimmett led the Responsive Reading with prayer for Beth Tilt’s brother, Bob; Bryan Carey; John; our nations leaders; world wide churches with a thank you from “Joyful Sound”; an invitation to the ladies salad supper at Santa Fe Christian church on Mon., Oct. 14 and a hayride and wiener roast at the Grimmett’s on Saturday, Oct. 12; with all saying the Lord’s Prayer. The message “Where God’s Kingdom Is Found” was based on scripture from Luke 17, Revelation 19 and Isaiah 54 as all believers are called saints. There is a heaven. We all see a visible sign through Christ’s table, the cup of the new covenant and

the breaking of the bread of life. What will happen when Jesus comes back? He is coming in the clouds with angels - the kingdom is coming... a day of righteous! His perfect plan for salvation! We need to be a visible sign for the King. The kingdom of God is within you now... Jesus is King. He suffered and died on the cross for our sins and He is resurrected and lives today. In the twinkling of an eye, everything will change - the kingdom of God is where the people are... You belong to God! Communion was led by Martha Hill and Dan Halleman while Debbie sang “One Bread, One Body”. The offertory was led by Max Tilt as Patti played “In This Very Room” and all sang the “Doxology” Patti played “All Hail King Jesus” as all retired in fellowship. Services are held every Sunday at 9 a.m., and all are invited to come hear the word of the Lord. ...The kingdom of God cometh not with observation, Luke 17:20.

Deacons were Amanda Johnson, Tom Hurley, LouAnn and Warren Hetrick” The choir’s special was “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” As Arlen blew bubbles in the air for the children he expressed sadness when they burst, teaching them things on earth live and pass away but Jesus never leaves them. Luke 17:5-10 was read by Chris Johnson for pastor’s sermon “Come To The Table”. The importance of communion in our worship was stressed as well as being thankful people.

The Paris Coyotes were in a back and forth contest with Fayette on Friday, Oct. 4 and it seemed to the standing room only Coyote faithful that whomever had the ball last would win. However, it was the Coyotes who stood tall defensively late in the game and won 4241 to raise their record to 4-2 with Slater on the road this Friday night, Oct. 11. The team moved up to third place in district standings with the win. Head Coach Gary Crusha, played famous chess champion Bobby Fisher, on Friday night as he matched Fayette move for move. Fayette returned the opening kick 66 yards for a touchdown with 11:16 left in the first quarter. Fayette 6 Paris 0 Coyote Quarterback Kyle Popkes stepped back, behind his solid offensive line, and threw a 33yard touchdown pass to a wide-open and streak-

ing Slater Stone. The two point conversion no good and with 9:16 left in the first quarter Paris tied the score at 6.

in front of a Fayette pass and rumbled 45 yards for a pick 6. The 2-point conversion was no good and Paris led 26-6 with 10:06 left in the half. Check… Fayette threw a touchdown pass with 2:05 till half. Hayhurst blocked the extra point and it was Paris 26 Fayette 12. Good counter… Fayette aided by 3 Coyote penalties, including a pass interference, rush in a 9 yard touchdown and with a 2-point conversion with 29 seconds left in the half cut the Coyote lead to 26-20. Due to an inadvertent referee whistle, the play before the touchdown, an interception by Slater Stone who had tons of real estate open before his winged shoes, was called a no-play leading to the Fayette score and a halftime 26-20 score. So far the chess game is pretty even. In the second half, Popkes tosses a swing pass to Laine Forrest who streaks 51 yards to the house. The 2 point conversion is good as Popkes strolls into the end zone and Paris leads 34-20 with 3:15 in third quarter. Check… Fayette counters gets with 66 yard kickoff return, their second of the game. The point after touchdown (PAT) was good and Paris led 3427 with 3 minutes left in third quarter.

Check Fayette… Coyote receiver August Hayhurst, playing for Brendon Hancock, who was on the sidelines with an injury, broke four tackles after getting a slant pass from Quarterback Popkes and raced 52 yards for a score. Laine Forrest converted the 2-point conversion and Paris took back the lead 42-35 with 4:59 left in game. On the next Fayette drive, Popkes, returning to the field after being sandwiched and shook up on his last pass, intercepts a deep Fayette pass and gives the ball back to the Coyotes with 4 minutes left in contest. Check… After forcing Paris to punt, and with under two minutes to play, Fayette scores on a rushing touchdown. Coach Crusha and Coach Forrest call the defense over and plan the defense. The Coyote defense shuts down the

2-point conversion just scant inches short of the goal line and with 1:30 left in game Paris leads 42-41. Checkmate! With no timeouts left for Fayette, the Coyotes easily run out the clock and defeat Fayette 42-41. Offensively, Popkes threw for 353 yards completing 21 of 35 passes. Popkes now has 23 touchdown passes for the season. Receiving, Brendon Hancock caught 6 balls for 103 yards, August Hayhurst snatched 3 receptions and had 88 yards and Slater Stone caught 7 balls for 87 yards.

John Robert Flynn, 51, of Maywood, passed away on Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, at 5:45 p.m., at the Bickford Cottage of Quincy in Quincy, Ill., after a courageous battle with cancer. Mr. Flynn was born on Oct. 10, 1961, in Moberly, the son of Robert Leo and Wilma Jean Miers Flynn. He married Abbie Eisenberg on Jan. 1, 1994, in Maywood. He is survived by his wife of 19 years, Abbie Flynn, of Maywood; his children, Alisha Schroeder (Vic), of Lewistown; Kristin Rees (Tim Brown), of Chesterfield, and Heather Rees, of Quincy, Ill.; his sister Roberta Jean Leverett of Paris; his brother-in- law, Merlin Eisenberg (Lauri), of Quincy, Ill.; his sister-in-law, Elaine Gorrell (Lynn), of Canton; his grandsons, Dylan Schroeder and Preston Schroeder; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents. John graduated from Paris High School in 1980. He earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in chemistry from Northeast Missouri State University in Kirksville. He attended the University of Missouri Columbia as a graduate student. John was employed by Green America Recycling, a subsidiary of Continental Cement of Hannibal. In an effort to recognize outstanding efforts to promote health and safety for the employees at Green America Recycling (GAR), an annual award was established. This award is presented to an individual within the GAR organization that provided health and safety benefits above and beyond the daily efforts necessary to maintain a healthy and safe workplace. John Flynn was the first recipient of the award for having developed and led an approvals committee for reviewing all potential waste streams to be used for energy recovery. John’s team developed a list of chemicals that were not acceptable to use as fuels as well as determining safety protocols for waste that were considered acceptable. From monitoring the workplace to determine proper personal protective equipment, to reviewing each load of wastes for compatibility and proper handling, John provided a much safer and healthier workplace for all of GAR. In fact, due to John’s valuable efforts over a 23 year career, this annual health & safety award was named in his honor. John’s positive impact on the health and safety for all workers at GAR will be appreciated for years to come. He enjoyed being outdoors participating in some of his favorite activities which included target shooting, hunting, fishing, and riding across the fields and along the river banks, on his four wheeler, with his wife Abbie. John was a very kind and caring person. He greatly loved spending time with his grandson Preston and grandpuppy BamBam. Memorial services will be held on Saturday, Oct. 12, at 2 p.m., at the James O’Donnell Funeral Home, in Hannibal. Rev. Steve Disseler will officiate. Visitation will be held on Saturday, Oct, 12, from 1 p.m., until the time of service, at the James O’Donnell Funeral Home. Memorial contributions are suggested to the Unity Point at Home Hospice, in care of the James O’Donnell Funeral Home. Online condolences may be made at
