Applications for all other eligible participants will begin Nov. 1. Eligibility for energy assistance is based upon income, the number of people per household and the type of heating source. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human

Services and is distributed through the Missouri Department of Social Services to non-profit groups such as NECAC. The program assists with paying part of the energy bills of income-qualifying people. Households may receive up to $450 each, depending upon the type of heating source. Applications will be accepted by mail and in person from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at NECAC Service Centers in each county. “We know that there’s a lot of need out there, especially at this time of the year,” said Linda Fritz, NECAC emergency services coordinator. “We urge people to take advantage of the assistance offered by this

program,” People who receive a utility shutoff notice also may qualify for assistance through the Energy Crisis Intervention Program (ECIP). Each energy assistance qualifying household can get up to $800 to help with paying overdue energy bills through ECIP. The programs run through April 30. During the winter heating assistance season last year, NECAC served more than 4,000 households.

Loving Ourselves


Fall-In-To Paris...It is that time of year. We will have two parades in two days and on Saturday, Sept. 28 we will celebrate the yearly Fall-In-To Paris extravaganza. Friday, Paris R-II Schools will have their Homecoming Parade and early Saturday moring the FITP parade will travel the streets of Paris. The annual FITP event is not only sponsored by the Paris Area Chamber of Commerce but also by many areas businesses. The annual event brings many visitors to our small hamlet in northeast Missouri and it is a time for


fun, food and fellowship. It is not to late to take part in the chili contest, the parade, the talent show or even the Extreme 5K run/walk. See the front page for information! Have a great week!


Real Changes Are Real Hard When we finally get past the current statements between Democrats and Republicans and back to the business of governing the country, we can focus on where we are as a democracy. We are witnessing a severe decline in the power of organizing and the power of electoral results in bringing about major changes in our country. The voters’ ability to set the agenda for political discussion has been so much reduced that even decisive elections like the election of Barack Obama last year made little difference. This is because powerful economic interests have been free to buy elections and have been unchallenged by a weakened national press and other media that rely on the revenue from various campaign ads. Big corporate money gets what it pays for most often giving to both sides to forment gridlock and prevent any changes that might negatively effect their operations. The interests that pushed campaign spending to new levels in 2010 and 2012 are just getting warmed up. Spending on federal races doubled from 2000 to 2012 and will double again in far less time. That “Citizens United” decision has made it nearly impossible to stem the flow of big money into politics. We have a long history of substantial reforms that benefited the average American through the 1960’s and early 70’s.

Since then we have for the most part worked within the usual political, legislative, judicial and regulatory confines. This has been good so long as there is a continuing basis of open and honorable politics. Efforts to work together for the common good should be supported. But it may require as well a broad campaign for constitutional reform. We need to eliminate the Electoral College so that never again will a candidate that loses the popular vote, as George Bush did in 2000, be elected president. We should prohibit gerrymandering and confirm our belief in one person, one vote. And we need to make clear that money is not speech, that corporations are not people and that our government is not for sale. The gap between rich and poor is widening and the middle class shrinking. If jobs and the prospects of making a living for our families shrink, we know that desperate people will do what they think is necessary to survive. President Teddy Roosevelt, a century ago, said “At every stage, and under all circumstances, the essence of the struggle is to equalize opportunity, destroy privilege and give to the life and citizenship of every individual the highest possible value both to himself and to the commonwealth. That is nothing new.” Maybe not. But it appears to have been forgotten recently to our detriment.


Dear Editor, The United Way of Mark Twain Area campaign is now underway for 2013-2014, and again we need our local contributors help. The Mark Twain Area includes Monroe, Shelby, Marion, Ralls, and Lewis Counties. The money received in Monroe County helps to fund the Senior Center in Paris, Monroe City Nutrition Center, Learning Opportunities, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and NECAC and again we need your help. The Senior Citizens Community Center served 725 residents in 2012 alone. We will be out asking for donations so please remember what a difference you can make in our community by donating whatever you can. During the 2012-2013 campaign a total of $2,659 was raised in the Paris community. Our goal for this year in the Paris community is $3,500. Just any small donation would greatly be appreciated, ($5.00) or more would be wonderful and would really help. We ask for your assistance to ensure these programs continue to help the needy. The United Way provides social, educational, health and human services to less fortunate persons in our area. Thank you for all your support and donations. Sincerely, Tara Sheffield, Community Chairperson

How many of us can say this about ourselves and really mean it? Sometimes we might think we love ourselves or try to pretend we do around others but how do we really feel about ourselves when we are alone and what are we really saying about ourselves we no one else can hear us? Deep down a lot of us are feeling unworthy, unattractive, and just not good enough. We are allowing the mistakes of our past to fuel our feelings of not being good enough today. We are allowing critical words that were spoken in our past to tell us how unworthy we are today. And we are allowing the media, the culture and people to dictate whether we are attractive or not. We have ALL made mistakes in our past. And chances are we are going to make some more before we leave this earth. Not one of us has a perfect track record. But how many of us can remember a mistake from our past that gave us wisdom for our future? Or what about a bad choice we made that helped produce compassion in us for someone else who


might have made a similar choice? We can not allow our past mistakes to make us feel like we are not good enough. We need to get this down in the inside of us-We are fearfully and wonderfully made. Absolutely NO mistake can change that fact. God loves us regardless of our past mistakes and the future mistakes we are likely to make. We can not earn His love with good works and we can not lose His love with bad works. The best thing we can do with our past mistakes is learn form them and then forgive ourselves for making them. (Hey, if the head honcho has already forgiven us, why can’t we forgive ourselves also?) I’m sure every single one of us can remember words that were spoken to us that wounded us. It might have been a family member, a friend, a teacher or a neighbor who spoke them. And I’m sure most of us can think

And last but not least is the issue of allowing the world to tell us if we are skinny enough, smart enough, rich enough, popular enough and so on and so on and so on. Let’s face it, the opinion of the world changes all the time. What was once considered cool is now uncool. What was once considered pretty is now ugly and what was once considered popular is now unpopular. The opinions of the media and culture are always going to change and we will find ourselves unhappy and feeling inadequate if we base our worth on what the world says. God has given each one of us a unique personality, a unique body and a unique mind for a reason. He designed each one of us in the way He wanted in accordance to the purpose and plan He has for us. The media, the culture and other people do not know the plans God has for us. The do not have the right to tell us what we need to be, how we need to look or what we need to do. God tells us everything we need to know and believe about ourselves in His word. God knew and approved of us before we were in our mother’s womb so He has known us the longest and know us best. If God loves us shouldn’t we love ourselves?

of a time we spoke a mean, hurtful word to someone else. The thing is people are going to be people. What I mean by that is this. There are always going to be people who treat us wrong and people who are going to say mean words either to us or behind our backs. We do not have the power to change that. But we do have the power to make sure we do not treat others poorly. We have the power to love everyone especially those who appear unlovable. We have the power to speak kind words even to those who appear unkind. The reason we have this power is because our wonderful Father loved us when we were unlovable and He spoke kinds words to us even when we were unkind. His love for us helps us love ourselves and in turn helps us love each other. Sometimes when we do not love ourselves and feel inadequate, we tend to be not-so-nice to others. But there is always hope. We can get into the word of God and see what he says about us. We can allow His voice to be stronger than those voices of our past. We can believe His words versus the mean words spoken by others and let His words produce life. His word tell us we are valuable, we are special and we are chosen by him. And in my opinion His words carries the most clout because He is the one who created

The SAE (Supervised Agriculture Experience) for this month is Rae Graupman. Rae’s SAE is Agri-Finance where she

works at a local bank to assist farmers and individuals in the community. She thought that the bank would be a great job opportunity. So she applied and interviewed for the job.

Rae has learned many skills over the years of having her SAE. She says her SAE will benefit her from the social skills and agriculture involvement that

she has been around. Her plans after high school are attending the University of Missouri-Columbia. She also plans to be a speech pathologist and a minor in communication disorder. When I ask Rae how young FFA members can get started with an SAE like hers, she replied, “They just need to know what they are interested in and look for the opportunity.” Brant Francis, SAE of the Month Chairman

MADISON TIMES Mark Twain Quail Forever supports local shooting teams While most students might not find it exciting to attend school, area high school FFA shooting team members were of a totally opposite opinion on Monday, Sept. 16. The team members were feeling excited for two reasons---they were outside and they were receiving free shotgun shells for their trap shooting team. The shotgun shells were Mark Twain Quail Forever’s annual donation made in support of high school shooting sports. Bob Riley, chapter member, stated that he looks forward to this presentation each year. “Seeing the youth, along with their excitement and enthusiasm about conservation and shooting sports, is encouraging for individuals such as me. These kids are the future of shooting sports, wildlife conservation and conservation groups such as Mark Twain QF.” Centralia and Madison teams each received 4 cases of shells on the 16th, while Paris, South

Shelby, and Monroe City teams received the same amount of shells on the 13th. Team sponsors all agree that donations such as these are very important as the teams use large quantities of shells for practice and events. Teams are asked to be involved and participate in various Quail Forever projects held throughout the year, such as the fundraising banquet and in conservation preservation

projects. Mark Twain QF members making the presentations included Verle Hugenot, Bob Riley and Richard Milhollin.

Annual Halloween Walk at Mark Twain Lake set for Oct. 18, 19

It’s that time of year again when the Indian Creek Campground at Mark Twain Lake is invaded by a full cast of creepy characters! The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is proud to announce the return of the Annual Halloween Walk. On both Friday October 18th & Saturday October 19th, everyone is invited to check out this year’s best decorated campsites. This is a great chance for the little ones to “sharpen their trick-or-treating skills” or for the older ones to come see what all the excitement is about. Everyone is invited to come in costume and don’t forget your flashlight! In an effort to help reduce congestion on Saturday the 19th of the event, the Fox and Eagle Point loops will be closed to drive through traffic starting at 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. This will also provide the younger trick-or-treaters a chance to come out in the daylight in somewhat less scary conditions as well. The loops will be closed to traffic at 6-9 p.m., on Friday the 18th of the event, to accommodate those trying to set up on Friday before the event as well as visitors just getting off work.

Change for 2013: The Mark Twain Lake Chamber of Commerce will be charging an admission fee of $5.00 per vehicle for each night of the event to help provide park visitor safety services for the event and other incidental expenses related to the event. The charge will be applicable to the hours of the event each night (Fri. Oct. 18 from 6-9 p.m., and Sat. Oct. 19 from 4-9 p.m.) Only registered campers who have paid a camping fee and show their correlating white hang tag will be exempt from this charge. The charge will not be taken at the fee booth but rather at the entrance to the East Campground, where the majority of the event takes place. Having exact change upon approaching the event will help expedite wait time and reduce long lines at the entry point. The Indian Creek Campground is located south of Monroe City. Take Highway 24 south out of Monroe City and take a left onto State Road HH. Follow the signs to spooky fun! All reservable campsites have been reserved but non-reservable sites will be available on a first-come-first-

Five car maintenance repairs you can do yourself

By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

Driving and maintaining a car can be very expensive. And not surprisingly, the cost is rising. According to a 2013 study by AAA, the average cost to own and operate a car has risen to $9,122 per year. But it’s not just gasoline prices that are putting a big dent in wallets — the cost of maintenance is up 11.3 percent from last year. So why not save a few bucks and help retain the resale or trade-in value of your car? Regular engine maintenance and tire pressure adjustments can help keep fuel costs down. And while most car repairs should be left to the experts, there are plenty of do-it-yourself projects you can do. Replace your wiper blades. Every 6 to 12 months is optimal depending on how often they’re used. If they leave streaks, make noise, or are hard and cracked, it may be time to install a fresh set. Consult your car’s user manual for more information about what type to buy. Fix minor scratches and paint chips. If they aren’t too big, a touch-up paint kit might be a good option. Be sure to follow the instructions to get the best results. Popular Mechanics has detailed instructions on how to fix a car paint scratch. Tire inflation and inspection. Tires are your vehicles contact patch with the ground and they must be maintained in good condition with proper inflation for the safe and economical operation of your vehicle. Here are a few simple checks you can perform to help keep your tires from letting you down. It’s a good idea to visually inspect the tires on your vehicle monthly at minimum. This inspection should note tread depth (in most states less than 2/32 of tread depth is illegal,) if the tire is unevenly worn (indicating a potential suspension alignment issues,) or if the tire is cracked, damaged, or otherwise deteriorated. If any of these conditions are found you should consult your local tire professional. For the correct inflation specification, reference the inflation placard. It’s usually located in the vehicles driver’s door jamb area of the vehicle or can be found in the vehicles owner’s manual. Now that you know the correct inflation specification for the tires on your vehicle its time to check the inflation pressure. Inflation should be checked, if possible, in the morning before the car is driven. Tire pressure can change due to many factors, one of which is a change in the ambient air temperature. For every 10 degrees in ambient air temperature change tire pressure can increase (if temperature rises) or decrease (if the temperature falls) by 1 psi. For more information see the Rubber Manufactures Association series on: Care and Service of Passenger and Light Truck (LT) Tires Including Tire Replacement Guidelines and Recreational Vehicle Applications Repair minor windshield chips. Some windshield repairs are covered by insurance. If your windshield has a small chip with minimal to no cracks and you want to fix it yourself, a repair kit may be an option. They generally come with all the materials you need and take about an hour to complete. While it’s not possible to fix all chips, you may be able to stop it from growing larger or discoloring in the future. See which types of damage these kits are recommended for, and a general overview of the repair steps they follow. Wash and wax your car. One of the best ways to maintain your car’s exterior is to remove dirt and residue that can damage the finish. It also provides a close-up look at scratches, chips, and dings you may not normally notice. Wash the car with a cleaning solution designed for automotive finishes. Work from the top down and use a microfiber washing mitt. Clean tires with a separate bucket of soap and water so you don’t get any grease and grime on the rest of your car. Inspect the paint for any gunk such as bird droppings, tree sap, or pollen. If these contaminants are above the surface, a clay bar designed for car care may help remove them. Dry thoroughly with fresh towels. Soft, absorbent waffleweave microfiber drying towels are a great option. Apply car wax. There are several varieties, but a liquid or paste wax applied every three months will help protect and maintain your car’s exterior. Don’t let the rising cost of car maintenance get you down. You don’t have to be a car care expert to do simple, moneysaving maintenance repairs to your car. - See more at: auto/repairs/5-car-maintenance-repairs-you-can-doyourself/#sthash.QOcF8Wck.dpuf

ul Pa r i s F Pastor Kenny’s message today was titled, “Foreigners.” Scripture was taken from Genesis 12:1-4 and Ephesians 2: 1922. Sometimes when we go to unfamiliar places we are scared or insecure. If God has called you to go somewhere you’ve never been He will prepare the way for you and be with you. We were once part of this world. As born again believers in Jesus Christ we are foreigners as our home is in the kingdom of Heaven. Prayers for family of Lindell Wilson, Taylor family, Helen Sharp, Richard DeOrnellis, Brendan Hancock, Noah Holmes, Ralph Omer, Ali Rentschler, individual that was hit by a car (a fellow runner lifted by Kayla Baker), Dorris Rossen, Krista Callahan and family, Dallas’ Baker’s father, families in Colorado, our nation and our leaders, marriages, our youth and those that have committed to attending Festival of Sharing next month for mission work. Praises were shared that Dallas Baker had the cross country team at her home and shared a meal and prayer time, Charlotte Omer had good results with her eye appointment, and Victoria Sessler’s new job.

Do you exist: can you prove it to the world? Does Brazil exist: can you prove it? How much of your knowledge is second hand information at best? How much of what you know has been seen with your own eye, heard with your own ears, touched with your own hands? Have you not taken the word of eye witnesses more often than not? If you see a photo of a sandy beach front, with a caption below regarding California, do you have any guarantee that it is not Florida instead? Isn’t life a matter of faith, in which we take the word of credible witnesses for fact? We spend over a decade getting our education. Most of which is comprised of information fed us by others: very little of our knowledge is first hand. And yet when we talk about God in public circles, we are frequently met with stone walled opposition: people claim to refuse acknowledgment of a God they cannot reach out and touch. I’ve seen the handiwork of God answering prayers before my very eyes: bodies healed in a single moment...I don’t need the voices or eyes of others to testify to the uncontrovertible truth that is God. I don’t need to hear those second hand testimonies. Yet I do have people I know and trust who have corroborated my experiences with theirs: just as was done by various Biblical characters. Other folks who have a favorable opinion of G(g)od, have their own accompanying definitions. Many attempt to define a god that would see things their way: hoping to codify their own convictions, or the lack thereof. You and I cannot change the color of the and I cannot change God. But we shall both stand before him on that great day...and on that day, His opinion trumps all of ours. One way or another, we shall all come to the realization that God exists, and we for his pleasure. We shall all learn, if not too late, that life’s greatest treasure rests in His Grace usward.

He told her that he was coming to see her in the afternoon. She didn’t have any food to serve so she went to the store to get some bread and milk and other things to serve him. As she entered the store she was confronted by a couple who said they were poor and needed help. Ruth said she couldn’t help but as they walked away she gave them what she had and also a coat. As she walked home she still didn’t have any food to feed Jesus, but when she got home she found another note in the mailbox. It was another letter from Jesus and he said, “I enjoyed seeing you and thank you for the warm coat”. We should also do acts of kindness in Jesus’ name.

Wesley Hammond’s sermon was entitled “Faith Completed”, from James 2:20-26. Question: Are you willing to learn”? God desires for us to live for him and be willing to learn. People are justified by works. Justified refers to having paid their debt for wrongdoing. Our faith is completed by the overflow of our works. Genuine faith justifies us and is revealed in our works. Paul wrote that we are God’s workmanship for works. Abraham was an example of faith and obedience. He was justified by what he did. Also, Rehab was a believer and was considered righteous for what she did in giving shelter to the Israelite spies and sending them off in another direction. Jesus justified for our sins by going to the cross. Faith without works is dead. James writes in verse 26, “As the body without the spirit is dead so faith without deeds is dead”. The choir presented “That’s Why we Praise Him” directed by Cheryl Gholson. Upcoming events: Trunk or Treat – bring candy. October is Pastor Appreciation month. You may put your cards and notes in a basket in the Sunday school rooms or in the sanctuary.

indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. Getting the flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available each year is always a good idea, and the protection you get from vaccination will last throughout the flu season. What actions can I take to protect myself and my family against the flu this season? CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. While there are many different flu viruses, the flu vaccine protects against the three main flu strains that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. In addition, you can take

everyday preventive steps like staying away from sick people and washing your hands to reduce the spread of germs. If you are sick with flu, stay home from work or school to prevent spreading influenza to others. Is there treatment for the flu? Yes. If you get sick, there are drugs that can treat flu illness. They are called antiviral drugs and they can make your illness milder and make you feel better faster. They also can prevent serious flu–related complications, like pneumonia.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 Greetings from FaithWalk Ministries – Bishop Harold G. Long, Pastor Morning worship service began at 10:30 a.m. “Jesus, Son Of The Living God” – sung by FaithWalk Choir Opening Prayer by Elder Helen Fugate Scripture by Bro. Michael Thompson – Psalm 95:1-6 “You Deserve Our Worship” – 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.” “My Worship Is For Real” – sung by FaithWalk Choir Bishop Long’s message was entitled, “The One Thing I Desire!” Psalm 27:4 Be positioned consistently, spiritually, in the place of God, looking at His beauty (His pure holy glory), inquire of it and then see God’s desire. One thing desired from God fulfills all of our desires. Desire – to long for, crave, ask, or request deep in your emotions, passions, and feelings. We all have the element of desire put into us when God created us Genesis 1:3, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31 Six times God saw that what spoke was good. It wasn’t until after He created man in His image and likeness that He saw it was ‘very good’! He created man (very good) last so that he could desire all that was ‘good’. II Timothy 2:22-24 and Run away from youthful lusts, knowingly choosing to do wrong with thoughts that you can escape from anything, and that you have time to get things right. The knowledge of truth is the essential weapon in the battle where satan is trying to control your desires. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. II Timothy 3:2-4 Desires to flee from I Kings 3:1-14 The one thing Solomon desired caused all of his desires to be fulfilled. Psalm 27:4 You need to humbly be in God’s presence in order to hear Him speak to you Announcement: FaithWalk Ministries, Inc. is pleased to invite you to join with us in celebration of our Bishop and First Lady Long, in their Anniversary service on Oct. 19, at 1 p.m. Everyone is welcome to come and worship with us!

Kyle Popkes has 18 touchdown tosses for the year Stone, Forrest, Hancock all score Coyote touchdowns In a shootout, on the road, the Paris Coyotes (3-1) defeated the Knox County Eagles 44-38. Quarterback Kyle Popkes hit for another record tying 5 touchdown passes to give him 18 for the season. With the Eagle defense double teaming Slater Stone, Laine Forrest pulled down three scores and added the second Coyote rushing touchdown on a 63 yard reverse totaling 193 yards of real estate while Brendon Hancock scored the first score of the day on a 19 yard strike from Popkes. Stone added a touchdown and was Popkes favorite target for two point conversions as he caught four of them for the night. Besides the above, the heroes for the night was the Paris Coyote offensive line including Briar Hancock., August Hayhurst, Kole Berrey, Austin Coffman, Brody Lehenbauer and blocking backs Zac Baladenski and Tucker Gruber as they opened holes for 138 yards of rushing and protected quarterback Popkes to the tune of 258 yards passing. Defensively, Paris had seven players with double digit tackles (Stone 21, Forrest 16, Gruber 11, Baladenski 12, Hayhurst 12, Lehenbauer 12 and Berrey 11), had two interceptions (Stone and Baladenski) and recovered two fumbles (Shelby Powell and Lehenbauer). But the biggest defensive play of the game came after Paris had a 44-38 lead after a Knox County score. After a Paris punt, Knox County had the ball and was driving down field, eating up turf, need-

ing only a touchdown to tie and an extra point or two point conversion for the lead when a completed swing pass saw Zac Baladenski swipe down the receiver taking the ball away at the Coyote 10 and returning the ball to midfield for a turnover with 1:09 left in the contest. The Coyotes ran out the clock and went on to register their third win of the season in four games. Paris led 6-0 at the end of the first quarter and led 22-14 at the half. Paris led 36-22 after three quarters and defeated the Eagles 44-38. Scoring: (First quarter) Brendon Hancock 19 yard receiving touchdown from Kyle Popkes; (Second quarter) 36 yard TD strike from Kyle Popkes to a wide open Laine Forrest for Coyote score, Slater Stone caught the 2 point conversion; Popkes to Stone 9 yard TD with 16 seconds left in half... Stone conversion, (Third quarter) 31 yard TD toss from Coyote Kyle Popkes (4th of game 17th of year) to Laine Forrest 28-14; Popkes 63 yard bomb to Laine Forrest - Stone 2 point conversion. (Fourth quarter) 63 yard reverse to Laine Forrest for a Coyote TD - Slater Stone from Popkes on 2 point conversion. Passing: Kyle Popkes completes 11 passes in 24 attempts for 258 yards (5 touchdowns). Receiving: Slater Stone 3 receptions for 54 yards; Laine Forrest 3/130; Brendon Hancock 4/78; Zac Baladenski 1/-4. Rushing: Popkes 1/-12, Forrest 1/63, Tucker Gruber 2/9, Zac Baladenski
