Local veterans attend Honor Flight

Special to the Appeal by Denny Hollingsworth More than a century and half ago, Henry David Thoreau asserted that instead of being judged by edifices built, future generations would want to know how we treated one another. Last month two Holliday area men got to experience the hospitality and genuine appreciation of a younger generation, for their military efforts and contributions to America’s defense six decades ago. Harold Wilson and Phil Willoughby were two of 55 WW II and Korean War veterans that took what both men described as a ‘trip of a lifetime’ to Washington D.C. Oct. 16, courtesy of the Central Missouri Honor Flight program, of Columbia. According to its website, the Honor Flight nation-wide network’s mission statement is to, “Transport America’s veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices,” however, in reality, the trip generally isn’t what impresses the vets, it’s the way they’re received by their fellow citizens during the almost 24-hour event. Harold and Phil participated in the 25th Central Missouri Honor Flight since the organization began in 2009. Through the generosity of hundreds of Missourians, the central Missouri network has spent more than $2 million in private donations and transported more than 1,200 WWII, Korean and terminally ill veterans on the one-day trip to Washington. The trip begins and ends in the early morning hours at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Columbia. The veterans are bused to St. Louis, flown to Baltimore, bused to Washington D.C. and return the same way. Harold and Phil were traveling buddies on the trip. All the vets teamed up and each duo was assisted by a volunteer

guardian. “Ours was a college student (Katelyn Witte) going to Central Methodist,” Phil said. “I think she wants to be a nurse. Harold and I were with her the entire time. She’s an angel in our book.” Mr. Wilson said he and Phil were impressed that every guardian, doctor, nurse and every person on the flights, except the veterans, paid their own way. “It cost Katelyn $300 to go with us,” Harold said. “She paid it out of her own pocket to help us. How do you go about thanking somebody for doing that, especially a college student?” Mr. Willoughby, 80, an Air Force vet-

eran, who served during the era of the Korean War, says he was treated by the Honor Flight organizers, and people who greeted him coming and going, as a hero and wishes no veteran miss a chance at the experience. “I would not personally tell another vet why they should make this trip, I don’t want to spoil the surprises,” he states, “but I would tell one they must go.” The retired hotel and motel manager said he was much impressed with the monuments he saw in Washington

Collector’s Office Hours: MondayFriday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Closed: All Saturdays; Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11; Thanksgiving, Thursday and Friday, Nov. 28, 29; Christmas Holiday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 24, 25; and New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, 2014. According to the United States Treasury, the federal, state, and local tax systems in the United States have been marked by significant changes over the years in response to changing circumstances and changes in the role of government. The types of taxes collected,

their relative proportions, and the magnitudes of the revenues collected are all far different than they were 50 or 100 years ago. Some of these changes are traceable to specific historical events, such as a war or the passage of the 16th Amendment to the Constitution that granted the Congress the power to levy a tax on personal income. Other changes were more gradual, responding to changes in society, in our economy, and in the roles and responsibilities that government has taken unto itself.

Behind the Stone


Veterans Day... Veterans Day is a day set aside to recognize the service and sacrifices laid down by many so that we can have the freedoms that we have today. In reality Veterans Day should be celebrated each and every day. Our brothers and sisters have been going off to war and in service of their country far longer than any of us can remember. I addressed the Veterans Day assembly last year and was quick to tell them that for many years I felt that I was not worthy to be called a veteran. What did I do? I didn’t fight in any war... I didn’t put my life on the line to serve my country... I ran an Emergency Room in an Air Force hospital. But you know what? I am a veteran. Each and every individual - man or woman - that puts on the uniform is a veteran. The men and women on the front line, putting their lives on the line have to have support. It is these other men and women in


uniform who help make a difference. They are veterans. I wish to thank each and every member of our armed forces both currently serving, have served or retired for their dedication and service to the greatest nation on earth and for helping keep it that way. Paris High School is having a Veterans Day assembly on Monday, Nov. 11. They are going to have fruit, donuts, juice and milk served at 9:30 a.m., to veteran’s and guests. Then there will be a brief assembly starting at 10 a.m. that will be finished before 10:30 a.m. Come join in recognizing our vets! Have a great week!

As I look out my window, I see a spacious, beautiful, grassy area. It is covered with large aged thick trees, flowers both fake and real, and stones of different shapes and sizes. Each stone tells a different story about a person who was once looking out their own window of life. I wonder about the person behind the stone. Who were they? What did they accomplish? Who did they leave behind? What were some of their passions, their fears, some of their joys? Did they leave with any regrets, any unfinished business or unfulfilled dreams? Did they leave before they got a chance to mend a broken relationship or before telling that special person in their life, I love you? What legacy did they leave behind? What wisdom did they impart? I watch their loved ones come and go-some putting flowers on the stones, some adorning them with lights

As Time Goes By

Smells Like Peanut Butter they could smell it. The people with early stages of the disease were not able to smell the peanut butter with their left nostril as well as with the right. Alzheimer’s affects the sense of smell and usually the left side of the brain first and the left side of the brain processes smells from the left nostril. It is obvious that more and larger studies are required to verify this study as being effective in actually diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease. It is no substitute for a medical opinion. But given that Alzheimer’s is very hard to diagnose in the early stages, this simple and no cost test could be a significant clue that Alzheimer’s may be present in its early form and that a serious further look by doctors should be the next step. It is a promising early clue to a serious problem.

and trinkets. Loved ones coming, sitting, standing, looking, crying, silent, talking, sharing, visiting the person behind the stone. As I look out my window, my hope is that we can give the people around us love, compassion, time spent, and forgiveness while we still have a chance. That we can resolve past issues and conflicts before it is too late and we are the person behind the stone. After I wrote this poem I took some time to reflect on my life. Am I saying I love you to the people I love on a regular basis? Am I taking action steps to fulfill dreams I have dreamt? Am I spending quality time with family and friends? Am I using my talents and gifts to help, to inspire and to encourage those around

All yesteryears are reprinted in the exact text of the original issue 90 Years Nov. 9, 1923 At Paris, buyers were paying 45 cents a dozen for eggs, butterfat was bringing 44 cents, hens 10 to 15 cents, roosters eight cents. Rev. V.T. Wood will conduct a special Armistice Day program at the Christian Church in Paris Sunday evening. John Stewart and Miss Oleta Holohan of Madison were married at the home of Rev. V.T. Wood in Paris. According to freight and express records at towns in Monroe County the output of eggs by Monroe County hens reached the enormous total of 314,612 cases, containing 113,260,320 eggs more than enough to provide an egg breakfast for every man, woman and child in America and then leave 13 million for extra orders. Carl Harley had a big force of men at work the first of the week staking out and digging holes for the polls for the transmission line to Holliday from the Paris power plant. A dance, with music by the Syncopatin’ Five orchestra of Paris, was given at the Legion Hall in Paris, Friday evening and attended by fifteen couples. Avory Grimes’ coal mine east of Holliday is the largest in the county. He only has four men employed now but is trying to get eight more on the job right away. The Holliday school basketball team was defeated at Clark of last week by a score of 19 to 14. Eben Harley, city mail carrier and Harry Burnett, have bought the Star picture theater in Paris, taking possession Nov. 1. Eight women, representing five Monroe County communities, constructed

and finished fourteen hats last week during the four day millinery school held at Paris. 75 Years Nov. 10, 1938 Miss Marguerite Mills is clerking at the Smithey Drug Store in Paris. Carl Bounds is in charge of the organization of six or more squads of former basketball players of the town, who will play through the winter in a town league, similar to the softball leagues of the summer. C.R. Noel, one of the regional directors of the state campaign for adoption of Amendment No. 6, was the only one whose district lined up strong for the proposition. His district, consisting of 11 counties, gave a 5,000 majority for the road program. Six representatives of a nationally known farm publication edited and owned by United States Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, including writers and photographers, visited the farm of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Terrell getting material for a magazine article regarding Ed Terrell, Jr., who was recently one of the few youngsters in the United States to be awarded the degree of Master Farmer. Charley Delaney, near Long Branch, reported that last Thursday’s high wind stripped ears of corn from standing stalks in his fields and those of his neighbors. It was the first time such a thing ever had been done by air.

how to plant a garden that would produce the best harvest possible, we would go to someone who has done it before. Someone who has the knowledge and wisdom on what to plant, when to plant it, and how to take care of it. It would not make much sense to go to a person who has never planted a garden before and take advice from them. They would not know because they have not ever done it. They have not seen how a tiny seed can turn into a bountiful crop when given the right care and attention. Or what if we try and do it on our own? We have never planted anything before but we decide we are going to take a shot at it. There is a chance we might get it right and there is a chance we might get it wrong. But why take a chance when there is a person within our reach that we can go to for all the help we need? A person who will know what to do with our garden when the rain comes, when the drought hits, when we aren’t giving it enough attention, or when the soil isn’t right. The only thing we need to do is go to that person and say, “I need you”.



Many of us have seen friends or family members drift into the quicksand of Alzheimer’s disease and slowly slip away from us. It is at once frustrating and heartbreaking when it hits close to any of us. Early detection may not yet offer a cure but can be most helpful in management and assistance to family members. There now appears to be a quick, but not scientifically proven to be entirely accurate test that can confirm the disease in its early stages. Researchers at the University of Florida tested 94 individuals of which eighteen had already been found to be suffering from early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. The tests were conducted by having each individual smell a spoonful of peanut butter with each nostril separately and measuring the distance each had to be from the peanut butter before

Are there situations that happened to me that I need to let go of and move on? Are there important conversations I need to have with a family member? Are there things I need to get off my chest to them but then remember to let it go after I get it out?

Have I decided to walk this walk with Him no matter what-in good times and in bad? Am I telling someone about His goodness and mercy daily? Am I spending time getting to know what He thinks about my every day decisions by reading His word that He has so graciously given me? I have learned on this journey of life that there is no better person to get to know than the person who created it. He has created us for a purpose and a plan so why not consult Him first.

Madison West Monroe FPD visits area schools for Fire Prevention Week

During National Fire Prevention Week the Madison West Monroe FPD was able to visit with many area schools to educate kids on the importance of Fire Safety. Those included were Madison, Holliday C-2, and Middle Grove. While at Holliday C-2, Staff for Life sent their helicopter for the kids to explore. The Madison West Monroe FPD recently hosted a whole hog barbecue instead of its annual pancake breakfast. The event was a huge success thanks to overwhelming community support. The firefighters and board appreciate all who came out to support them. They look forward to seeing you all again next year! SUBMITTED PHOTOS

Middle Grove C-1 scores perfect 100 percent on DESE annual APR

Earlier in the school year all schools were notified by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education of their A.P.R. (Annual Performance Report). At this time the Middle Grove C-1 School achieved a 100% on their report card. Middle Grove was one of only a handful of school districts statewide to achieve this level of success. This past week the school was notified that they also achieved the Title I recognition of both High Performing Reward School and High Progress Reward School. There are certain criteria

that must be reached to obtain these goals. According to state supervisor, J.D. King, Middle Grove was one of only seven schools in the Northeast Region to meet these goals. “The hard work and determination of all involved in the schools day to day operations are a testament to the willingness to achieve at the very highest levels. It proves that bigger is not always necessarily better,” said Scott Salmons, School Administrator. Under MSIP 5, every school and school district in the state is awarded points based on its performance in

five areas: Academic achievement Subgroup achievement (includes minority students, students with limited proficiency in English, students with disabilities, students eligible for free and reducedprice lunches and students receiving special education services) College and career or high school readiness Attendance rate Graduation rate Schools and districts receive a score based on the number of points earned out of the total number of points possible.

Monroe County Appeal •


Granv Pastor Kenny’s message today was “What A Mess!” Scripture was taken from John 4: 1-26. Jesus will send you where you don’t want to go, He will put you in a position to bring you out of your comfort zone. He meets you where you are and shows up in the middle of whatever you are going through. Jesus will give you a testimony that will show you that you no longer belong to the world. NOW is the time to worship, NOW is the time for salvation. Prayers Kathy Ragland, Ashley Kendrick, Darcy Woodhurst, Taylor Carr, Sara and Matt Watson, Barbara Wiley, Sherry Becker, Carolyn Pearson, Vicki Durham, Ila Mae Willingham, John Stevenson, Isaiah Olivas, Dallas Baker’s mom, Ralph Omer, Jo Reynolds dad and son, Sirena Bell, and struggling marriages. Praises were for Kathy Laird’s daughter and daughter-in-law both doing well, David and Joni Kendrick’s daughters’ adopting children they’ve been fostering, Charlotte Wohlbold’s surgery being successful, Jo Reynolds’ son recovering from having two deer come through his windshield and injuring him, Paris football team winning game Friday night and advancing, Moberly boys cross country team going to state, Moberly football team winning last game. Happy birthday was sung to Evert Kendrick. Salt Saturday youth will meet Nov. 9, from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m., all youth and adults welcome, thank you from Pastor Kenny and wife Joni for the showing of appreciation for their service to God and our church, thank you to all that helped with the Lord’s Acre supper and sale, Christmas parade in Paris, on Dec. 5., Bible study is every Wednesday night, carry in meal at 6 p.m., and study at 6:30 p.m. Sunday school is at 9:30 a.m., and worship service at 10:30 a.m.

“The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me.” Psalm 118:6 Greetings from FaithWalk Ministries – Bishop Harold G. Long, Pastor Morning worship service began at 10:30 a.m. Opening Prayer by Elder Helen Fugate Scripture “I Will Bless The Lord At All Times” – 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.” Special offering was led by Elder Maurice Berry. “Create In Me” – sung by FaithWalk Choir “Every Praise” – sung by FaithWalk Choir Elder Maurice Berry’s message was entitled, “Just A Little More, Jesus” Are you asking for more things or for more of God? John 12:26 Following Christ takes a personal commitment to Him. John 8:36 What are you really striving for? If you’re striving for more of Jesus, is it because you want Him to give you more materialistic things and money, or is it because you want more of His wisdom and presence? II Chronicles 16:9 This is why we should strive for more of Jesus. Show Him that you love Him. Remember, God knows your heart. Isaiah 29:13 Take up your cross, deny yourself, and show Him your heart, not your words. It’s not if you love Jesus, it’s, do you want to live for Him? How do you live for Him? Deny yourself and stop trying to fight your own battles. Proverbs 3:5-6 and II Chronicles 7:14 Seek and crave the Lord Jesus Christ and turn from your wicked ways and look to the Lord for forgiveness and healing. God knows everything we’ve been through and every scar. This is why we must strive to have more of Him. Communion service was led by Elder Maurice Berry. Everyone is welcome to come and worship with us! Weekly service times: Tuesday at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Men and Women Support groups at 6 p.m., Thursday at 7 p.m., and Sunday at 10:30 a.m., and 7 p.m. God bless you!

l Fellowship e p s l Go Pastor Terry Davison

We all have hidden thoughts…concealed aspirations. Some of them, we figure, are just too silly to reveal: others we consider personal and private. We consider ourselves unique, to the point of feeling odd and out of place much of the time: we wonder how ‘this’ person or ‘that’ one seems so happy, so successful… ‘wishing’ that we were too. On the one hand, we feel like a fifth wheel…a boat with one oar…the last player off of the bench. But on the other hand, we feel a deep sense of individuality: knowing that there is no one ‘just like me’….sometimes relishing that thought, some times bemoaning it. We often lack confidence in ourselves, not trusting our judgment; but then we turn around and fuss over tasks that “only I” can do…we just can’t resist jumping in to make sure that others do the job right. We’re a mix, we’re a mess. All of us. And yet many of us have an expectation in life that we aspire to live up to: preconceived goals and guidelines that are unique to us. We may even obsess, regarding those expectations to the point of ignoring what others think. But for all the planning and scheming in life, how often do we consider God’s expectations for us? How often do we consider His aspirations for us, rather than our own? While we may be limited in our mental and physical abilities to tend goals, there is no limit to the spiritual growth we can attain to if we hold fast to our Faith and look to God’s plan in or lives. The sky is the limit.

As a surprise to the veterans, they received “Mail Call” during the trip which included letters from family and friends. Phil shared a few of the letters he received. Phil’s description of the welcome back into Columbia, which began in Kingdom City, when 400 Patriot Guard motorcycle riders joined the two buses as Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officers blocked entrance to I-70, to the fireworks being shot off of an overpass to 100 cars at a church along the way with headlights flashing.

Quail Forever to hold wildlife habitat tour

The Sunday, Nov. 3 services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Patti Grimmett playing “Blessed Assurance” on the piano followed by Debbie Carey leading in song to “To God Be The Glory”, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”, “Jesus Saves” and “Threefold Amen”. Pastor John Grimmett led all in the Responsive Reading from Psalms 113 and 146 with prayer for Ethan Tunink; Rick Bransetter; Clyde Olschlager; Albert Sinclair; Shery Tinkler; Bryan Carey; Bob; Cherie Graupman; and Pastor John; Happy Birthday was sang to Beth Tilt and Susan Honaker and congratulations to Dan and Debbie Carey for their 37th Anniversary; with all saying the Lord’s Prayer. Pastor John and Patti played guitar and sang “Softly and Tenderly”. The message “Large and Small” was based on scripture from Luke 19:1-10 as there is always someone that the community doesn’t like in this world today, just as in the time of Jesus. Left out - lonely - insecure - life changes as Jesus approaches... God loves us just as we are, but He also loves us so much not to leave us that way - He can make us even better. Today is the day of salvation, if you will open your heart and your eyes to the place where God wants you to be...a servant of God - the amazing grace of Jesus Christ. God is always seeking us! Today is the day... Communion was led by Dan Halleman and Martha Hill with Offertory led by Kaylee Beckham as Patti played “Just As I Am” and all sang the “Doxology”. Patti played “Lord I’m Coming Home” as all retired in fellowship. Services are held every Sunday at 9 a.m. and all are welcome to come hear the word of the Lord. And Jesus said unto him, “This day is salvation come to this house forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham”. “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost”. Luke 19:9-10

On Sunday, Nov. 3, church services began with the pastor giving an opening prayer. Regular church meetings of the week were announced and all were encouraged to attend. Announcements included: the Mountain Aires will play at The Manor, in Paris on Nov. 11 and at Heritage in Centralia on Nov. 18; both events will be at 7 p.m. There will be Pizza and movie night on Nov. 16. The message this week was titled ‘Having the Mind of Christ’ and came from 1 Peter 4:1-6. Peter tells Christians they are to arm themselves with the mind of Christ. This ‘arming’ is a preparation for battle in the life of a Christian. Jesus has a mind that is militant towards sin. Jesus left heaven, changed His material properties (became man), came to sinful earth, to conquer sin and death. Everything Jesus taught, every step He took, every miracle He performed fulfilled the will of God; which was for Jesus to have victory over sin for mankind. If Jesus had such a mind, how can Christians enjoy the sin that caused Jesus to suffer and experience death? ‘Arming yourself with the mind of Christ’ means that His mind is available to you if you desire it. Overcoming the old nature before coming to Christ is not automatic. It takes effort and focus, but most of all it takes desire. If you have the desire the Holy Spirit will bless your efforts. Having the mind of Christ will cause suffering in the flesh. Gal. 5:17 tells us there is a battle between the flesh and the Spirit. If the Spirit wins the flesh will suffer by not doing the sinful things it desires. If the flesh wins you lose everything. For Christians to live and enjoy the will of God, the Spirit must win. Christians can enjoy living the will of God but they cannot enjoy sin at the same time. This is serving two masters and Mt.6:24 we learn this cannot be done. When you personally get fed up with sin you can begin to enjoy God and not before. When you reject sin expect the lost folks to treat you different. Not living in sin will make you stick out like the odd kid in junior high. You will get treated in the same manner. Should this give Christians a superior or righteous attitude towards the lost? No, we should be patient and loving just as Jesus was. He never left the truth of God but He was kind to the lost. Remember when you were blind to spiritual truth (1 Cor.4:3-4) and dead to spiritual discernment (Eph.2:1)? While the lost may think you are out of your mind for not acting as they do, you are their hope of going from where you where to where you are now. While Jesus alone saves, Christians are to show the world who Jesus is by action and word. To do this we need the mind of Christ. Of course I am writing about other Christians; not you and I. We have our spiritual act together and no longer need to press towards the mark. The little sins we have must not count for we go to church on Sunday and God blesses us. So we can sit back and relax while we wait to go to heaven. It is the other Christians that need to strive to bring others to Christ. We need not worry about others being on the road to hell. Aren’t you glad those who brought you to Christ did not have this mind? They had the mind of Christ and we need a renewing of the mind of Christ in the church today in a strong way.

The Perry Christian Church worship hour of November 3 began with the choir singing “I Stand Amazed”. Jacob and Damien lit the candles. Pastor Todd welcomed everyone and led the Call to Worship. There will be a meeting with the Baptist Church to discuss a joint food pantry. This Monday Bible Study will be the Book of Habbakuk. “I Can Only Imagine” was sung in praise. Our prayer hymn was “Abide with Me” “I Need Thee Every Hour” was the response. Pastor Todd gave the invitation to share the Lord’s Supper. “Break Thou the Bread of Life” was sung. Prayers were offered by Elders Joyce Coleman and Jim Gay. Deacons serving were Carol Norman, Wyatt Lewellen, Glenna Johnson, and David Lewellen. Arlen sang “God Bless the USA” for the special music. Arlen had the Children’s Moment. He made the comparison between three clear liquids and talked about how different people were. Luke 19:1-10 was read by Sue Todd for pastor’s sermon on “Reaching Out to Find Christ.” The sermon was based on how Zacchaeus reached out to Jesus and how Jesus went to the home of Zacchaeus. “Down at the Cross” was the invitation hymn. We closed with singing “Zacchaeus”.

The Madison Grace United Methodist Church held worship Sunday, Nov. 3, which was All Saints Sunday and Holy Communion.

Conservation Corner

by Casey Bergthold

Conservation Corner Monthly Notes From Local Conservation Professionals The weather has cooled and fall is here. Reds, yellows and browns now fill the woods. Before first light, the bobwhite quail call from their newly formed coveys. While the sun peeks through the trees, an aggravated fox squirrel chatters at a whitetailed buck rubbing an old cedar. For me, these scenes are what make Fall a wonderful time of year. Perhaps, for you, it is a morning walk with your favorite companion, or reading a book on your porch while monarch butterflies migrate South on a cool afternoon. Whatever it is, fall is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy Northeast Missouri with family and friends. Often, we owe this enjoyment to the wildlife that share our lands: the butterflies, bobcats and bats; doves, deer and ducks; rabbits, raccoons, and robins. As a result, I receive many calls this time of year from landowners that would like to know how to improve their property for wildlife. Unless the landowner is looking to kill problem, woody species or create brushy areas for upland game, my answer is usually, “Fall is a great time to plan”. Much of what we can do to improve habitat for wildlife involves increasing plant diversity, providing the correct

plant structure and the appropriate arrangement of these communities on the land. For example, much of Northern Missouri was historically prairie, broken by wooded valleys that followed the many streams and rivers. The animals that we enjoy seeing are adapted to that type of environment and thrive when we manage the land to meet their needs. Odd areas, old fields, and field edges are prime places to manage for wildlife and in many cases we can increase the abundance of species like rabbits and quail by doing a Winter or Spring seeding of grasses and wildflowers. Perhaps flowers, butterflies and bees appeal more to you. Wildflower plantings can provide food for beneficial insects throughout spring, summer and fall while providing great habitat for migrating songbirds. So while you are enjoying your favorite outdoor activity this Fall, think about what you can be doing to make your land better next year for yourself, your family and your friends. Many opportunities exist and there are many great organizations that provide financial assistance for projects that benefit wildlife, improve water quality, and reduce soil erosion. Please contact Casey Bergthold, Quail Forever Biologist, at 573823-0675 if you are interested in improving your land for wildlife.

D.C., but equally, or maybe even more impressed with how he and his fellow one-time soldiers, Marines and airmen were acknowledged by both spontaneous and planned crowds of people during their 24 hour adventure. Baltimore and Beyond Willoughby said it started when they got off the plane in Baltimore. “It was a spontaneous, heart-felt greeting and very much appreciated by every member of our group,” Phil stated. “They announced our presence on the PA,” Mr. Wilson said. “And people, hundreds, would stop and start applauding us. It thrilled me to be greeted by the people as they did. They were clapping and cheering us; shaking your hand, giving hugs. It touches your heart.” “I never thought I’d be saluted by an active duty officer,” Phil, an enlisted man when he was on active duty, said with a grin, “especially two female ones.” Harold Wilson, 80, a Navy veteran of the Korean War, agreed with Willoughby. The semi-retired farmer said, “That was something! I never saw anything like that aboard the USS Iowa. Of course we didn’t have any women aboard ship then, and if we’d had they wouldn’t have saluted me,” he joked. Two female Naval officers, lieutenants, met the men and their traveling party by coincidence at the Baltimore airport as they were boarding their buses to go into Washington. Phil said the officers saluted and held the position of esteem to the traveling party until both of the buses pulled away from the terminal. “I was deeply touched by their display,” he said. Monuments and Memorials After arriving in Washington, the men were driven by the White House, Capitol and several office buildings, but didn’t leave their vehicles until they arrived at the WWII, Vietnam, Korea and other memorials. The Korean War memorial, dedicated in 1995,

at only 2.2 acres in size, is the smallest of D.C.’s war memorials, but one of the most complex and innovative. Both men were impressed with the 164-foot long polished black granite walls and the 2,500 photographic images representing the land, sea and air troops who fought in the Korean War. The images are sandblasted onto the wall. Another part of the wall also acts as a mirror and reflects an artificial image of 38 soldiers in combat gear. They said of all the monuments and memorials they visited they concurred that the Korean one was the most attractive and realistic. America lost 54,000 killed in the Korean War and another 8,000 are still missing, including Monroe County native Charles R. Dixon. He was reported a Prisoner of War December 1, 1950, however, when the conflict ceased and prisoners exchanged the North Koreans avowed no knowledge of his existence. The U.S. government eventually declared him a casualty with his remains never recovered. Harold Wilson said he felt the presence of Charlie Dixon and every American lost in the Korean War while at the monument. He almost choked up when he said, “Being there, seeing the 19 tall statutes representing a squad on patrol. They’ll always be there. They never got to come home. I think the memorial is summed up by one statement on a wall without any thing else. The words are, ‘Freedom Is Not Free.’” At the WWII memorial Harold encountered 3rd District Missouri Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer and said he took the opportunity to bluntly tell him how upset he was with the government shutdown. He said the congressman didn’t want to talk with him about that particular issue. Although the men visited Washington during the shutdown, it didn’t affect Continued to page 18

Substance abuse problems often go unrecognized by seniors or their family. It is extremely important that seniors carefully monitor the use of both prescription and non-prescription medicines and strictly limit their alcohol intake. Keeping a list of all medications that includes the dosage requirements can help seniors and their physicians keep track of their medications. This list should be with you in case of an accident that may require hospitalization. Consult a physician or your pharmacist concerning potential interactions between prescription medicines and over-the-counter

drugs. Be responsible for your own health and don’t be afraid to ask questions about your medications. Ask your healthcare provider if it is safe to drink alcohol. Alcohol can interact dangerously with many prescriptions and over the counter medicines. Because metabolism changes with age, seniors are unable to process alcohol as effectively as younger people. Although alcohol on special occasions or in moderation may be fine, it is a risk for people with dementia, diabetes, liver disease, and high blood pressure or combined with certain medications. Many people use medica-

tions and alcohol to help them cope with depression. Research has shown that alcohol and medication abuse is responsible for falls, insomnia and heart problems. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends that adults 60 years and older limit their drinking to one drink per day providing your healthcare provider approves. The Substance Abuse Awareness for Seniors (SAAS) initiative was created by the District of Columbia Department of Health, Addiction Prevention and Recovery Administration (DOH/ APRA). SAAS offers edu-

cation, referrals, advocacy and training for providers of elder care services on assessing and addressing chemical dependency issues with seniors. If you or a loved one are a senior living with chemical dependency, SAAS can help you find resourc-

Guide to Winter Preparedness

The winter season presents many challenges for seniors, who are statistically more prone to hypothermia, driving accidents due to severe conditions, home fires, and injuries resulting from falls. While many families

look forward to upcoming holidays and the beauty of winter, concerns for a senior loved one’s wellbeing can cause undue stress. The key to enjoying a safe and healthy winter is being prepared for many of the commons

issues. 2. House Fires: The ma1.

es to face the problem and develop a plan of action. When confronting a loved one about their problem, be sure to explain to them why you feel that they need help and let them know how much you care about them. It is important for individuals to

know that alcoholism and drug addiction is a disease and that there is a wealth of community resources available to help them. For more information, visit aspx

seniors and slippery stairs and sidewalks can present great hazards. What can you do? Shovel your sidewalks and walkways often or arrange to have someone do it for you. Wear proper, skid-resistant footwear and avoid icy areas or snowy sidewalks if possible. Recruit the assistance of a friend or loved one to help you safely navigate uncertain terrain if you must venture out. If you use a cane or walker, attachments and accessories, such as ice picks, are available. 4. Drive Safety: According to the National Safety Council, crash rates for drivers 65 and older are higher than all other age groups except teenagers. Inclement weather often increases the amount of driving accidents. What can you do? Winterize your car, checking antifreeze levels, tire tread and pressure, and the windshield wipers. Before driving, stock your car with basic emergency supplies, blankets, and food. Check weather reports and road maps and use tire chains when possible. Always take a cell phone with you during any trips. While driving,

stop gently to avoid losing control, reduce speed, keep headlights on, and proceed with caution on bridges or overpasses. 5. General Safety: Taking small steps throughout the year to prepare for harsh conditions can have a profound impact and keep you from scrambling at the most inopportune times. What can you do? Stock up on essential items like medication and non-perishable food items. Keep flashlights and blankets readily available should the power go out, and prearrange to have a friend or loved one check on you from time to time. Those with senior loved ones should plan to visit often and ensure their loved ones have reliable transportation as well as emergency supplies in the home. Taking these precautions and preparing for winter weather can help you and your loved ones get back to enjoying the beauty of the season. For more information, visit http://www.

GETTING LOVED ONES TO ACCEPT ASSISTED LIVING Convincing an elderly or senior loved one to move from the comfort of a home he or she has known for many years into an assisted living situation can be one of the toughest hurdles for families to accomplish. The best way is to start the conversation sooner rather than later, while your loved one is still in good health. Getting him or her used to the idea beforehand will make it easier when the time comes. But what if you haven’t already made plans for the transition? If it is time for your loved one to alter his or her living situation, here are some ideas for what you can you do. 1. Think Safety First— keep in mind that your loved one’s safety is the most important thing. If you know that he or she cannot remain at home safely, don’t let your emotions override what you know needs to be done. Don’t wait for a broken hip, a car accident or a crisis call before you step in. Recognize that when you were a child, your parents would have done everything possible to keep you safe. Now, as hard as it is, you have to be the “parent,” and you have to make the best

decisions for your senior loved one’s safety. 2. Consider a MultiLevel Facility—be sure to consider the benefits of a multi-level facility, which allows for additional services as your loved one’s health declines. This prevents the turmoil of having to move a loved one to a new location as more services are needed. Many seniors start out with their own private apartment, then progress through assisted living and eventually to skilled nursing and dementia care, all within the same facility. They may be able to bathe and take their own medications now, but as they need help, it is a blessing to know that additional services are available. Many times the friends they have made progress with them, which provides the comfort of familiar faces. 3. Get References—the best way to check out a facility is to talk to numerous families who already have a senior loved one living there. Drop in on the weekend when families are visiting and ask if they are happy with the accommodations, food, service, activities, cleanliness, reliability, personnel, etc. If they had it to do again, would they move their loved one

there? What have they learned from the experience? What do they wish they had known when they were beginning the elderly care process? Also ask the administrator if there are any liens or lawsuits filed against the facility. If they will not give you a written statement that there are no legal problems, keep looking. 4. Ask about Activities—adult children are often filled with guilt for moving their parents out of their home. That is, until they see them flourishing in a new environment and participating in activities that they haven’t enjoyed for years. Speak with the activity director to make sure that there are numerous activity options. Does the facility offer field trips, games, crafts, singing, dancing, gardening, cooking, exercising, etc.? Monitor the activities to make sure they are happening. 5. Create a Need— once you have picked out the right place, ask the administrator for help in convincing your loved ones to move. Staff members of Assisted Living Facilities are very familiar with this problem and deal with it daily. Ask a social worker to call your parent and develop a relationship over the phone. He or she may also be able to drop

by while you are there to talk to your parent and invite him or her for a get-together. Later, take your parent out to lunch, then casually drive by the facility to say hello to that social worker who had come by to visit. Seeing a familiar face is usually very helpful. Remember, any kind of change can be very scary for anyone, especially a senior. Take things slow, calm and steady, making your loved one’s safety your goal. Another idea is to have the social worker ask for your parent’s help with “fixing” something. Could they, for example, go over to help out with the Bingo event or singing classes? Tell your senior loved one that they are “needed” there

to help entertain others. Giving them a “job” to do can ease the transition of moving there. 6. Reach for Support— realize that everyone who has ever been lucky enough to have a parent reach his or her senior years has experienced the pain of watching their once-competent parent decline. We all know it is a part of life, but even

with all that has been written, there are no words that can prepare us for the sorrow. Reach out for help from family and friends, and look into a support group. Don’t even think you can do it alone! For more information, visit

The Paris Coyotes (64) defeated Louisiana (28) in the first round of the Missouri High School Football playoffs 32-27. The Coyotes did it the way they have done it all season - through the air with their excellent stable of receivers and touchdown throwing quarterback Kyle Popkes. Popkes tossed five touchdown passes and accumulated 465 yards of real estate through the air. Louisiana began the scoring with a 60 yard pick 6 versus Popkes and the Coyotes. But less than 60 seconds later - Quarterback Popkes hit his favorite target - Slater Stone - with a rainbow 53 yard touchdown pass that Stone jumped over his shorter defender to corral and turn into six points and after Stone’s PAT the score was tied at 7. To begin the second quarter with the score still knotted at 7, the Bulldogs had pinned the Coyotes

deep in their own territory at the Coyote 5 yard line. QB Popkes dropped back and with great protection from his offensive line, Popkes hit a streaking Stone with a short 10 yard pass . Stone sidestepped his defender and then outracing the defense turned the short pass into a 95 yard touchdown. Stone again nailed the kick and Paris led 147. Paris allowed a short rushing touchdown near the half and the teams went to the locker room tied at 14. After each team had an offensive series to begin the second half, QB Popkes hit Brendon Hancock with a 41 yard pass, after Hancock had beaten his defender, and Paris led 20-14. Coyote Defensive Back Laine Forrest knocked a ball loose on the next Bulldog offensive play and recovered the fumble for a Coyote turnover. Not one

to waste any time, Popkes immediately turned the turnover into points when he hit Brendon Hancock over the middle on a slant and a 53 yard score. The conversion was no good and Paris led 26-14. Louisiana cracked the scoring with a 30 yard run and with 2:06 left in the third period Paris led 2620. With 5:53 left in the third quarter, Dylan Langerud popped a Bulldog runner freeing the rock, Briar Hancock grabbed the loose ball and the defense had forced another turnover. Popkes then again hit a wide open Stone with a 47 yard bullet and Paris led 32-20. Louisiana hit a 40 yard passing score and after the PAT pulled within five at 32-27. The Paris defense held and forced the Bulldogs to punt. The Coyotes drove down the field forcing Louisiana to use their timeouts. With about a minute left Popkes hit Stone with a pass for a first down. Stone dove to the turf to pull in the catch. The completion gave the Coyotes a much needed first down and with two kneel downs the Coyotes sealed the win and advanced to the next round versus Westran. The game was played on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at Westran. Details in next week’s Monroe County Appeal or found on the website.

This rule will not apply to occupied dwellings owned by the CAFO or to the dwellings not in existence at the time the CAFO is first issued a permit by the DNR, or the County Commission if CAFO is not permitted by DNR. B. No Class 1A CAFO shall be located within one and one half (1 1/2) mile from any other CAFO. Measurement will be in a straight line from the center of each respective CAFO building, confinement lot, or other confinement area, or waste handling facility or lagoon. All other location of CAFO set back rules also apply. VII. VARIANCE TO SETBACK RULES The County Commission may authorize a variance from the strict application of the standards and criteria established in this ordinance with respect to setback requirements by the CAFO Owner obtaining the written consent of the owners of all occupied dwellings within the setback area. Said written consent must be filed with the County Commission along with a formal written request by the CAFO seeking the variance for the commission’s consideration. VIII. APPLICATION OF AN ORDINANCE A. “GRANDFATHER CLAUSE” EXEMPTION CAFOS in existence on the effective date of this ordinance are exempt from the terms and conditions of this ordinance so long as the CAFO continues to operate upon the same real property. The purpose of this section is to provide what is normally referred to as “grandfather clause” protection for existing CAFO’S. However, if the CAFO changes its operation in any way, an increase of animal units, or in the planning, design, or construction phase or application phase with the Department of Natural Resources, then this “grandfather clause” protection does not apply to the change. Even if the change does not change the classification of the CAFO a permit must be obtained from the Monroe County Commission. (Refer to Section III, A through D.) B. TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP OF CAFO WITH “GRANDFATHER CLAUSE” EXEMPTION If ownership of all of the real property, upon which a CAFO that existed on the effective date of this ordinance, is transferred to another person or entity, then this exemption continues to exist for the CAFO so long as the CAFO does not lose the exemption for any of the reasons stated above in paragraph A. If ownership of any portion of a CAFO that existed on the effective date of this ordinance is transferred to another person or entity, then the “grandfather clause” exemption offered by this section remains with the original owner unless the original owner transfers part or all of the “grandfather clause” exemption to the new owner. In order to transfer all of the exemption, the original owner must so state in a written document executed at the time of the transfer of the real property. A copy of this written document must be filed with the County Commission within 120 days of the transfer of the real property. In order to transfer any part of the exemption less than the entire exemption, the original owner must state in a written document the number of animal units of exemption being transferred to the new owner. This written document must be executed at the time of the transfer of the real property, and a copy of the written document as well as documentation outlined in I, F and G must be filed with the County Commission within 120 days of the transfer of the real property. This is no limitation on the number of times a “grandfather clause” exemption, or any part thereof, may be transferred. C. TRANSFER OF “GRANDFATHER CLAUSE” EXEMPTION DUE TO DEATH OF OWNER If real property upon which a CAFO is exempt from the provisions of this ordinance by virtue of this “grandfather clause” is transferred to a person because the original owner dies, then the exemption applies to the new owner. An original owner may transfer the “grandfather clause” exemption with a tract of real property less than the entire tract upon which he operated the CAFO. If transfer is less than the entire tract then documentation as outlined in I, F and G must be filed with the County Commission within 120 days of the transfer of the Real Property. IX. VIOLATION OF ORDINANCE Any person violating this ordinance shall be subject to punishment of up to one (1) year in the County jail or by a fine up to One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) or by combination of imprisonment and a fine within that range as provided by law. Each day a person operates a CAFO in violation of this ordinance and each time a person applies animal waste or animal waste water in a manner inconsistent with the requirements of this ordinance shall be considered a separate offense. X. SEVERABILITY If any section, paragraph, sentence, clause or phrase of this ordinance is, for any reason, held to be invalid by any Court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the remaining portion of this ordinance. No statement contained in this ordinance shall be construed to interfere with any additional requirements that may be imposed by the Monroe County Commission or any other entity having lawful authority over CAFOS. XI. REPEAL OF ORDINANCES NOT TO AFFECT LIABILITIES, ETC. Whenever any part of this ordinance shall be repealed or modified, either expressly or by implication, by a subsequent ordinance, that part of the ordinance thus repealed or modified shall continue in force until the subsequent ordinance repealing or modifying the ordinance shall go into effect unless therein otherwise expressly provided; but no suit, prosecution, proceeding, right, fine or penalty instituted, created, given, secured or accrued under this ordinance previous to its repeal shall not be affected, released or discharged but may be prosecuted, enjoined, and recovered as fully as if this ordinance or provisions had continued in force, unless it shall be therein otherwise expressly provided. XII. EFFECTIVE DATE This ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage by the Monroe County Commission on the date and year written below. This Ordinance is accepted by the undersigned Monroe County Commissioners and will become enforceable on this 28th day of October, 2013.

Monroe County Appeal • Ralls County Herald Enterprise


Local Veterans attend Honor Flight... Continued from page 8

their sightseeing. At the Marine Iwo Jima memorial their entry was blocked by gates, but some veterans in the party moved the blockades and they drove the buses through. Phil said they were polite and put the gates back in place when they left. Mail Call Phil said the return home was a memorable journey for the traveling party. It started with a military-style mail call after they’d taken off from Baltimore when every vet received letters from family members and friends. Mr. Willoughby said he was getting too emotional to read his and waited to do so until he returned home, but Mr. Wilson opened his. “The letters were full of love and appreciation,” Harold said. “I told my wife after I got home, ‘I think they were writing about somebody else because I don’t deserve that gratitude.’ They (letters) were very touching, they brought tears to me eyes.” Star-Spangled Homecoming Another boisterous crowd greeted the traveling party when they landed in St. Louis and according to the two Monroe County men, the real fun started as they were returning home. “About twenty miles outside of Columbia they woke everybody with reveille and told us to pay attention. First, the Missouri Highway Patrolmen started escorting us and then we passed by 400 motorcycle riders that were lining Highway 70. The motorcycles joined the state patrol cars in front of the buses; red and blue lights were blinking, it was fantastic,” Phil stated. Harold remembers bon fires along Highway 70

lit in their honor, cars in church parking lots turned towards the interstate with their lights on and at an overpass fireworks went skyward. When they arrived at the Marriott in Columbia around 11 p.m. the parking lot was full of people; a dozen Missouri State Patrol Academy candidates were standing at parade rest and beside them was a group of Scottish bagpipers. The vets were escorted off the bus by the Troopers; every vet was joined by two members of the Freedom Riders Motorcycle Club, that had met them on Highway 70, and were individually introduced to a cheering crowd. On Nov. 3 the Central Missouri Honor Flight committee hosted a welcome home afternoon reception for the 55 veterans on the Oct. 16 flight and their families at the Marriott. They viewed pictures taken by the committee’s official photographer. On Dec. 8 the group is invited to return to the Marriott, again courtesy of the committee, for a nighttime USO dinner and dance party. Background Phil Willoughby, a St. Louis native, altered his birth certificate when he was only 16 in able to join the naval reserve. He later legally joined the Air Force after graduating from Cleveland High School, in June of 1950, at age 17, three weeks before the start of the Korean War. He trained as a medic and spent a good deal of his time on active duty stationed in Greenland. After the service he returned to St. Louis for nine years, moved to Paducah, KY and eventually got a job in the hospitality industry. He worked for the Best Western motel chain for many years and other independent businesses. He

has sons in Kansas City and Paducah and lost another son in February. He retired in 1993, moved to Monroe County, he says to be near water, and lives adjacent to Elk Fork, south of Holliday. Harold Wilson, son of the late Rufus and Peryl Wiley Wilson, is a fourth generation Monroe Countian that grew up where he lives today, north of Holliday, in a home that started as a two-story log house. He graduated from Paris High School in 1951 and joined the Navy in February 1952. At one time his brother was a shipmate of

his on the Iowa; he and two of his brothers were all in the Navy at the same time and eventually five Wilson brothers all completed naval service. He was a machinist mate that spent his entire enlistment on the Iowa. During his time on the ship the Iowa used its 16 inch guns to bombard North Korean positions more than a hundred times in a one-year period, and steamed 40,000 miles up and down the country’s coast. In 1953, during a leave, Harold married the former Wilma Jean Ball and the couple has three children.
