Perry Rocks the Fourth! Perry citizens and guests enjoyed an almost picture-perfect Fourth of July celebration Thursday, July 4. The weather was warm but breezy and there were plenty of activities to keep the kids occupied. The day started out with a parade at 9:30 a.m. Our local World War II veterans were given a place of honor behind Police Chief Brian Hooley and the squad car. There were lots of decorated gators and golf carts, several floats and quite a few vintage cars. Kids rode in boats, wagons, floats and carts. Candy was thrown and eagerly gathered by the large crowd of spectators. The always favorite Baby Show was held at 10 a.m., in the Bandstand. Red, white and blue was the unofficial color scheme for dress and the winners seemed to be more interested in the trophies than Mom and Grandma’s smiles. There were several craft stands open and kettle korn and funnel cakes were available. The Perry Area Chamber of Commerce had their food stand and Pepsi Wagon open. A choice of fried gizzards was added to the traditional fried fish plate again this year. Many people also enjoyed the homemade ice cream provided by Debbie Hodges and friends. Children enjoyed competing in the Pedal Tractor Pull, Sunflower Seed Spitting, Mud Pit Tug of War, Money in the Straw, Frog Jump, and the Scavenger hunt. Many of the young ones enjoyed a ride on the Kids Train between their competitions. People drifted over to the Antique Tractor Pull as the afternoon wore on and the children’s events finished. A dedicated group continued to play the Corn Hole Tournament into the evening. All in all a grand celebration for the

Ralls County named in disaster declaration What does that mean for the county? Gov. Jay Nixon today requested that the federal government issue a major disaster declaration for the state of Missouri as a result of the severe storms, tornadoes and prolonged flooding that affected large portions of the state from May 29 to June 10. The storm system, which included an EF-3 tornado in the St. Louis region on May 31, caused extensive damage to communities and facilities across the state. “On May 29, a severe storm system began tracking across much of Missouri,

bringing tornadoes and torrential rains that left flooding and extensive damage to homes, businesses and public infrastructure in its wake,” Gov. Nixon said. “Missourians have been hit with high repair costs as they work to recover, local communities and state agencies have been burdened with excessive response costs, and expenses for repairing destroyed infrastructure will be very high.” The Governor said joint damage assessments have been conducted in 30 Missouri counties. “I want to thank local emergency managers and other officials for their efforts over the last few weeks to thoroughly categorize the extent of the damage

that was done,” Gov. Nixon said. “Those efforts will help support our request to the federal government for assistance.” Gov. Nixon’s disaster declaration request is for public assistance in the following 30 counties: Barton, Callaway, Cape Girardeau, Cedar, Chariton, Clark, Howard, Iron, Knox, Lewis, Lincoln, Maries, Marion, Miller, Montgomery, Osage, Perry, Pettis, Pike, Putnam, Ralls, Shelby, Stoddard, Sullivan, St. Charles, St. Louis, Ste. Genevieve, Texas, Vernon and Webster. Brian Mulherin, Ralls County FSA Agent, explained that the money would

VIEWS & COMMENTS From The Other Side

A Conservative’s Point of View

By Danielle McMillen rallscountyconservative@gmail.com

WINNERS AND LOSERS

I grew up with parents who instilled the will to win inside me. Losing was not an option. If you did lose, you had better learn from the defeat. Cheating wasn’t allowed. I was lucky enough to have my dad coach me most of my childhood. That statement is made in hindsight, because when I was actually being coached by my dad, I couldn’t stand it. But one thing I learned, is that there are winners and there are losers. Having been on both ends of the stick, I can say that it is so much more fulfilling to win. It didn’t really matter how much you lost by, losing stunk. I have a hard time hearing people say that winning isn’t important, it’s how you play the game or that everyone deserves equal time on the field. Guess what? Winning is important. It gives children of all ages a confidence – a lot like acing a big test – and encourages them to put forth their best effort in all endeavors in order to get maximum results. Losing is also important, it teaches grace and dignity and hopefully a good coach or teacher will help kids learn from their mistakes and maybe point out some things the winning team did that will make the losing team better. I’m pretty sure if you took a poll of kids playing sports, they would rather play on a winning team than get just as much playing time as the kids who can play and win the game. I don’t mean that kids like to be benchwarmers, but when you play to win – whether in sports or in life – the people who get the job done are the ones who are in the game. And those who have the starring role need a supporting cast. That’s where the rest of us come in. If we teach our kids that hard work, practice and a strong work ethic pay off with big dividends, they will find success. One of the great things about America is there are so many different definitions of success. For some families, seeing a child graduate and be the first of that family to

go on to college is success, for others, it might be having their fifth child graduate as valedictorian, following in all four siblings footsteps and for others, it’s the thought of a good job, enough to support a family and save for the future. Success comes in all different shapes and sizes. I guarantee that any adult today who sat on the bench and watched their team win a state championship without seeing much, if any playing time, still smiles when they think about that winning season. They were part of a successful team. How you play the game – it does matter – cheating isn’t acceptable and sportsmanship isn’t just about athletics. Looking at the culture today makes me wonder if people have forgotten that. It is suddenly ok to demonize your opponent instead of winning on merit. The argument is that if one side is going to get low down and dirty, then the other side must do the same in order to have a chance at winning. It’s a hard point to argue since I have often felt the same way. However, I was blessed with the chance to watch a woman I admired beat her opponents without resorting to the same tactics. She relied on the truth and the facts helped her keep her nemesis at bay. She knew what was coming and still didn’t stoop down to their level. I learned from her. I wish others around her would have learned from their losses to her instead of continually trying to undermine her. Then they may not be where they are today. I may have lost my way a couple of times in my life, but I never lost the light. I hope that everyone can keep the light within their reach and remember to use it instead of falling into the darkness. It’s a long hard climb back up. I’d like to end this week by thanking Judi for allowing me to put my two cents in every week. I don’t know how many columns I’ve written, but I have enjoyed every last bit of it.

not be available until next year. “If the money is there, we could access it,” said Mulherin. “FSA can’t give assistance unless the governor declares a disaster. It’s the first step in getting assistance. Most of the money would go to alleviate damage done by flooding and severe storms.” “Ralls has a lot of acres that didn’t get planted,” added Mulherin. “Crops that were planted look good but they’re about a

month and half late. Crop insurance will help but if a disaster is declared and federal aid money is there then the disaster aid will be available to Ralls farmers.” Public assistance allows local governments to seek assistance for response and recovery expenses associated with the severe weather and flooding; individual assistance means that eligible individuals and households can seek federal assistance for uninsured losses from severe weather

Tourism Director to drive Heritage Driving Trail Katie Steele Danner, Director of the Missouri Division of Tourism will be in Ralls County on July 12 to drive a part of the Ralls County Heritage Driving Trail.

and flooding. The disaster period covered by today’s request followed similar severe weather and flooding that occurred in April. Gov. Nixon first declared a state of emergency in Missouri on April 10, in response to flooding brought on by a prolonged period of heavy rain. That same day, the Governor mobilized the Missouri National Guard to assist communities fighting rising floodwaters. The Governor’s order activated the State Emergency Operations Center and enabled the state to mobilize its resources, including the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to assist local authorities. On May 31, the Governor again declared a state of emergency as continuing severe weather elevated river levels and tornadoes and straight-line winds caused extensive damage.

New London City Council discusses budget On June 24 the New London City Council held a budget meeting at 6:00 p.m. in the city hall. Present for the meeting were Mayor Marvin Miller, Aldermen Allen Ballard, Brad Atkinson, Marilyn Powell and Janie White and City Clerk Millie Powell. No one else was in attendance. City Clerk Powell explained the process for which the budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal year was determined. Individual line items were discussed. The public hearing closed at 6:24 p.m. A special meeting of the council was called to order on June 24 at 6:24 p.m. immediately following the public hearing.

A motion to approve the amends to the 2012-2013 Fiscal Budget was passed unanimously. The proposed 2013-2014 budget was approved unanimously. The meeting adjourned at 6:26 p.m. “Once again Ralls County’s newspaper has changed hands. Change is inevitable. It sometimes comes at an inconvenient time, but it comes despite our protests. The paper’s format and layout may differ, but the community is still the focus of our news. Our neighbors, churches and schools are the heart of the paper’s content, Always has been, always will be.”

Carolyn Trower Editor

Remain the Same?

As I often do before taking the “leap of faith” from what appears to be reality, across a vast chasm of speculation and interpretation, to a viable foothold in the Land of “Nods” (as opposed to “head shaking”); I sought council with Webster’s Dictionary. (Don’t have a Funk & Wagnall’s.) Change is an interesting word. Actually most words are interesting. Just ask Bill Clinton about the word “is.” (Although I will admit that “pya” interests me even less that “kyat.”) Change (the word) is as interesting as its possibilities. Change can be a vt. (verb, transitive), a vi. (verb, intransitive), or a n. (noun). Is it an oxymoron that “verb” is a noun? As a noun, “change” means 1. The act of or process of substitution…or 2. Absence of monotony…Since there is really no way to document when “change” started, we can really only catalog the changes that have occurred during recorded history, or speculate as to how changes in progress and future changes may come to impact our lives. We’re dealing with changes all over. Especially young parents. While “changing” the baby (To what? A pony?) is a verb, the “change” itself is a noun. Like any other change, there is residue to be dealt with. (Cover your eyes. I did the participle thing again. Change is not always forthcoming.) Egypt; marriage (how many other countries recognize gay marriages? Iran? Iraq? Kenya? Israel? Mexico? Italy?); the right to bear arms (openly or concealed); the mandate for all Americans to have proof of health insurance by 2014, even though the administration has now given employers until 2015 to provide said insurance; the change in the demography of the population of the United States: based on the theory that what was once supposedly the majority of United States citizens will soon not comprise a majority. Exactly where is it written or otherwise documented that Latinos are not Caucasians? Are they of Asian descent? Supposedly, Native Americans are of Asian descent. So, if we mix Spanish, Portuguese, French, Dutch, German, British, and Chinese ancestry with the native DNA base from South of the U.S. border, do we have a pure-bred Latino? And, how do you separate “Latino’ Catholics from Irish, German or Orthodox Catholics any more than you can segregate Judaism or Protestant by race or ethnic heritage? How do you list and separate (I said “list,” not “lift.”) all the ingredients in the “melting pot?” no matter how much the “sensation media” tries to draw lines of demarcation, the fact remains that those who chose the United States as their home with their pledge of allegiance have just become part of the majority who value the privilege of “freedom to assemble,” the protection of “due process of law,” and the security of living in a country where the duty of the military is to protect and not to rule. This is why people come to the United States. Why on earth would they want to change it? True, just as was the case when the United States opened its doors to millions fleeing Europe, there are those with political and economic agendas who are avid to “feed” upon those not yet accustomed to their new environment. That’s why the veterans here should be mentors. Along the lines of change, I’m sure you’re aware that the paper has a new owner. Still local staff. Still local news. Maybe I’ll change. Nah!

“Perry Bandstand dedication”

“How come you didn’t eat that meat? How come you slipping up on me like this? You ain’t nothing but a little old girl dog.” The animal drooped its nose and Skeeter saw it as plain as day and it was about as high as his knees. The little wrinkled face was almost sad and the white hair blazed down the chest and around the throat, but mostly the thing was red and the hair very short. “Ain’t going to hurt you. Wouldn’t hurt you for nothing.” The dog, for she was a dog, blinked her eyes and was trembling but did not run away. Slowly the boy walked toward her holding out his hand and talking to her and then he knelt by her and stroked her and she stopped trembling.

the handle of the can over his arm and picked up the gun. “Come on. Let’s go home. Me and you.” The dog followed willingly and the rope was not necessary at all, but Skeeter was taking no chances. They went back to the spring and the food that he had left there was gone. “You slipped in and ate it.” He knelt by the dog and squeezed her head between his hands and played with her. “You fooled me. Didn’t know you were anywhere nigh and here you were round and about all the time.” He put his cheek against her head and she chuckled. He wrapped the rope around his wrist and they headed up the path and when the cabin was in sight Skeeter began running, and the dog was at his heels. “Uncle Jesse!” He shouted the greeting and the news. “I got it.” The old man still was sitting on the back steps, staring at the saw that should have been cut, and when he heard the boy he moved faster than he had moved in many years and jogged around the corner of the cabin. “I got it. Told you I’d get it,” Skeeter yelled. “Well, now, I do know.” Uncle Jesse was flabbergasted and looked hard at the strange animal. “That ain’t nothing but a little old dog.” “Little old girl dog.” “Well, now, I do declare.” Uncle Jesse moved forward the boy and the dog leaped between him

and Skeeter and braced herself. “Hold that thing.” The old man stepped back. “Ain’t rightly friendly.” Skeeter tightened the rope and slipped his arm around the dog’s chest. “That’s just Uncle Jesse. Lives around here, too. Just Uncle Jesse.” The dog looked from the boy to the old man, and the old man still was skeptical and kept his distance. “Didn’t growl or nothing. Just jumped.” “Can’t growl,” Skeeter said. “Do she ought to be barking or growling she just laughs.” “Do tell.” “It’s so.” He handed the gun and the bucket to Uncle Jesse and snapped his fingers and whistled and the dog followed him around the cabin, and Uncle Jesse followed both of them, shuffling along and muttering his amazement. Skeeter glanced at the uncut wood and said nothing and went over and sat on the back steps and the dog sat at his feet and never took her eyes from his face. “She’s mine. Uncle Jess. I found her.” “Wonder how she got around here?” The old man propped against the cabin and studied the animal. “Don’t know, but she’s mine.” “That dog’s been around folks. Belongs to somebody.” “Belongs to me. I found her.” To be continued

The Church at Ariel

Pastor Tim Sanders

Chariots, 8 Horses, Trust The word says in Psalms 20:7 that some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. This old world has such a draw to it that we must always be in guard as to where we place our trust for it can be drawn away by things, and ways, and thoughts, but there is only one who can faithfully hold our trust. He is Christ the Lord! Some trust in chariots, some trust in horses. Not me! Ice Cream Social on Saturday, July 20, from 5-7 p.m. Live music by Ariel Messengers about 5:30 p.m. Come visit, enjoy fellowship and listen. Just old country stuff! The Church at Ariel (Ariel Christian) is located in Ralls County off Highway A 1.5 miles west of Salt River Bridge on Ariel Lane. Follow the signs. Services are at 10:30 a.m.

Perry Christian Church

Pastor David Todd

The altar candles were lit by Caytlyn Provancha and Jordan Kay Wilkerson for the Perry Christian Church worship hour of July 7. “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” was sung. Pastor Todd gave the welcome and recognized the family of Floyd Seelow. Today was his birthday and family came from Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio and Missouri, to help him celebrate. Arlen led in singing “Happy Birthday” to him. Jane Long from Idaho is a guest of the Elams and was also introduced. “Awesome God” was the praise hymn. Pastor Todd had recently visited with JoAnne Bumgarner and she sent “greetings”. John Asbury thanked everyone for their prayers and well wishes and stated it might be safe to take him off the prayer list for now. Zabette Elam said she was doing well. A good report from Mike Arrowood was given also. “Battle Hymn of the Republic” was sung before morning prayer and sharing our concerns. Prayers are asked for friends and family of Lynn Broyles and Zabette.Elam and for Frankie Ross. Family of the Seelows, Shanian and Emily, will be doing mission work in the Harlem section of New York for a couple of weeks and want our prayers. “Victory In Jesus” was sung after pastor invited all to share in the Lord’s Supper. Elders giving the prayers were Arlen Provancha and Greg Harrison. Deacons were Warren Hetrick, Wyatt Lewellen, Nancy Seelow and Glenna Johnson. As tribute to Floyd, a piano solo was performed by his granddaughter, Katherine Linstad. For the children’s moment, Alisha Eisele read an inspirational story of a talented hymn composer and asked each of the children what talents they had to share. Their talents were many and varied. Luke 10:1-11 was read by Jesse Todd for his father’s sermon on “Serving the LORD”. In that respect, serving on our church board this year will be Chairman, Nancy Seelow; Vice Chairman, Tom Hurley; Secretary, Carol Norman; Treasurer, Jill Lewellen. We have a serious message to share with others that the Kingdom of God is drawing near and it is important to pray for others and to celebrate what God is doing for us on our journey of faith. The invitation hymn “I Am Praying for You” preceded the benediction and closed with “America, the Beautiful”. Bible Study will begin the Book of Daniel.

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

The Sunday, July 7, services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Patti Grimmett playing “America the Beautiful” on the piano followed by Pastor John Grimmett leading in song to “The Star Spangled Banner”, “God of Our Fathers”, “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and “Blest Be the Tie That Binds”, and the Responsive Prayer of Confession and the Assurance of Pardon from Micah 7:18-20. Prayer was held for Helen Kennon; family of Mike Mallory; the Halleman family; plane crash victims; Egypt; those traveling and our country with all saying the Lord’s Prayer. The morning special was sung by Patti, “What Did He Die For” as she played guitar. The message “God’s People and God’s Plan” was based on scripture from 1 Corinthians 15:1-12 as the ultimate sacrifice was Jesus dying on the cross for you and for me...Credo “I believe” - we need to explain exactly what happened...We are all called to know the gospel and proclaim the word of the Lord - Jesus is God! God understands the problems of the world - On the third day He arose from the dead - this is our amazing truth...Who is going to judge you and me? JESUS! In the blink of an eye! Earl Sweitzer and Dan Halleman led the Communion; with Dan leading the Offertory as Patti played “Our God, Our Help in Ages Past” and all sang the “Doxology”. Patti played “Eternal Father, Strong to Save” 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 that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures 1 Corinthians 15:4.

COMMUNITY NEWS/LEGALS New London First Christian Church

Pastor Tom Day

Worship services at New London First Christian opened with the choir singing “This Is the Day.” Pastor Tom Day welcomed all and made announcements. Marilyn Lucas played “I Believe in a Hill Called Mt. Calvary” as the prelude. The call to worship and the responsive reading were followed by the hymn of praise, “Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory.” The invocation was given and the Lord’s Prayer said in unison. Pastor Day’s youth moment was “Be proud to be an American.” The worship hymn was “O Beautiful for Spacious Skies.” Joys and concerns were heard. What a joy to have Liz Gingrich with us today. “Happy Birthday” was sung for her 99th birthday. Jim Quinlin also celebrated a birthday and Dorothy and Jim celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary. Prayers were asked for Ray Jarman (Dave’s brother), Fern Arnold, Robert Stover, Mary Gay Huff, Marian Gallion (surgery), Pastor Dawn Marie Turner, the family of Linda Lake Dorman. Pastor Day performed graveside services. CWF provided lunch after the services. Silent and pastoral prayers and choral response followed. The meditation and words of institution were given in preparation for the Lord’s Supper. The communion hymn was “I Am Thine, O Lord.” Elder Tom Flowerree gave the prayer. Serving today were Bryan Day, Eunie Whitaker, Carrie Talley and Pat Gibbs. The offertory sentence, receiving of the tithes and offerings, doxology and prayer of dedication followed. Scripture was from Proverbs 22:28 and Pastor Day’s message was “Remember the Landmarks!” The hymn of invitation was “Let There Be Peace on Earth.” Benediction, choral response and postlude closed the service. Steve and Betty Wideman were greeters. Dalton Peery lit the candles. Carrie Talley and Eunie Whitaker prepared communion. Today’s thought is, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door; I will come in to him and will sup with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20

Perry City Council unanimously reverses decision over English Mastiff, warns owner Bill Arnold was in attendance at the July 2 Perry City Council meeting to appeal a recent complaint against his dog. Police Chief Brian Hooley gave a history of the complaints and the dates they were made against Arnold’s English Mastiff. Complaints included that the dog barked at individuals who were walking in the street and that the dog came up to people in the street. Chief Hooley recited Ordinance 205.190 and declared the dog dangerous because of subchapter 3 of the ordinance. Subchapter 3 reads, “Biting or injuring any person, domestic animal or pet; habitually snapping at, growling or otherwise manifesting a disposition to bite, attack or injure any person or domestic animal or pet; causing any person

to have a reasonable fear of physical injury.” Arnold defended his pet saying it was a large dog with a loud bark but was not aggressive. Arnold read several letters from individuals regarding his pet, all which said the dog had never shown signs of aggressive behavior toward them. After much discussion a motion was made to repeal the vicious dog complaint for the English Mastiff. If another situation arises there will be zero tolerance and the dog must be muzzled when on a lead and must abide by the ordinance. The motion passed 4-0. Penny Roberts was also in attendance to speak to the council on the importance of an Air Evac membership for people who live in a rural community. She asked the council to con-

sider purchasing a membership for city employees. City Clerk Danette Henderson reported that she had pay requests from Klingner for $447.38 and from Lake for $11402.13. A motion to pay the requests was unanimously passed. Bill No. 176 was introduced and read by title only by City Attorney Joe Brannon. The ordinance title reads, “An ordinance amending section 700.210 ‘Electric Rates’ of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Perry, Missouri.” This bill allows the city to increase the electric rates. The rates will increase 8 % beginning with the September2013 utility bill. Approval of the first reading passed unanimously. The bill was given a second reading which was also approved unanimously. The roll call vote went as follows: Alderman Long, yes; Alderman Hawkins, yes; Alderman Barnett, yes; and Alderman Sharp, yes. The bill was declared passed by Mayor Wasson and became Ordinance No. 461. City Administrator Mark Fuqua reported that

paperwork for the USDA/ RD grant had been filed. Chief Hooley reported that he had received a $250.00 donation from Woodmen of the World to be used toward equipment. Discussion was held on fireworks regarding the decision to allow them to be set off through July 6. City Superintendent Don Huff reported that the bench and table had been moved from the Dr. Swon Park to the Bill Trower Memorial Park as discussed at the June meeting. Huff also provided a bid from Klingner on a plan for uni-directional flushing. A motion to approve the plan for uni-directional flushing by Klingner & Associates for $3200.00 was approved unanimously. The council also voted unanimously to approve the city to join the Missouri cooperative procurement program which would allow the city access to statewide contract listing and to approve Anthem BCBS health insurance renewal. The meeting adjourned at 8:30 p.m.

Alix Carpenter Agronomy Specialist Nitrogen Loss Peter Scharf, MU Extension Professor specializing in nutrient management, estimates that nitrogen loss cost Midwestern corn producers two billion bushels from 2008 to 2011. High moisture levels brought on by rain and snow have caused nitrogen loss this year as well. Fall-applied anhydrous ammonia and other (non-anhydrous ammonia) nitrogen sources applied this spring are at greatest risk of loss. For several years, Dr. Scharf has provided data concerning spring rainfall and the potential for nitrogen loss on his Nitrogen Loss website, http:// plantsci.missouri.edu/ nut r i e nt manage me nt / nitrogen/loss.htm. Data from this year indicate that most well-drained soils in eastern Missouri are in danger, meaning that fields in these areas will have substantial yield loss due to nitrogen deficiency is all nitrogen was applied pre-plant. More than 16 inches of rain has fallen since April 1 in danger areas. Rescue nitrogen applications will likely be profitable until tasseling or later. When rescue N applications are called for, any method (other than broadcasting UAN solution onto a crop taller than one foot) is a good method. Dr. Scharf summarized: • Broadcast urea causes

almost no yield loss due to leaf burn. In our research, we applied 150 pounds of nitrogen per acre as urea on corn up to four feet tall, and the yield difference between broadcast and inrow placement of urea was generally less than four bushels per acre. However, we made an attempt to use non-dusty urea at times when no dew was on leaves. Dusty urea on wet leaves might cause more yield loss. Urea is clearly a better nitrogen source than ammonium nitrate for aerial application. • Agrotain coating of urea improved yield response of corn when the corn was one or two feet tall, but not when the corn was three or four feet tall. The taller corn has less air movement at the soil surface, which probably reduces volatilization loss from the urea. Also, corn leaves can absorb ammonia from air, so ammonia that volatilizes from urea applied to tall corn may be captured by the leaves before escaping into the air above the canopy. • Ammonium nitrate causes substantial yield loss (about 20 bushels peracre) due to leaf burn when broadcast over three or four foot tall corn, moderate yield loss (eight bushels per acre) when broadcast over two foot tall corn, and no yield loss when broadcast over one foot tall corn. • UAN solution dribbled between rows was an effective rescue N treatment. Broadcast UAN solution caused severe yield loss due to leaf burn.
