Sergeant Bernhardt, from the Missouri Highway State Patrol, presented a stranger danger program on November 19, 2013. Sergeant Bernhardt told the children how to avoid and protect yourself from strangers. He presented at Center Elementary at 2:15 PM, and at

New London Elementary, Pre-K through 2nd grade at 1:00. His challenge for the kids was to come up with a safe word with their parents for when they send someone to pick them up. We sent out a questionnaire to the teachers, parents, and the children. One of the questions

asked what the teachers thought was beneficial about the program, one of the kindergarten teachers from Center Elementary responded with “the importance of the buddy system when walking, and playing, and to tell parents uSee Stranger on page 2A

VIEWS & COMMENTS From the Editor

by Editor Carolyn Trower I like to shop as well as the next gal. But the shopping on Thanksgiving is a little much. It’s one of the last unspoiled holidays we have; no elaborate decorations and no gifts to buy and wrap. There is a little stress for the cook, but it’s worth it. When family and friends gather round the table all the stress melts amid the laughter and conversation. Then there’s the down time between the first round of feasting and the second dessert. Time to watch the game, play some games, pour over the photo albums and elicit stories from the “elders.” Time for cousins and far-flung relatives to reconnect. Time for friends to join the family circle. How do I even begin to count my blessings? Sounds so simple---faith, family, friends, my health and living in Ralls County. I choose not to dwell on the mess the world is in; the wars, the injustices, hunger and fear. I pray for peace because I can’t fix anything on the state or national level. I can only trust that God’s plan will prevail. I’m limited to my micro-universe of family, home and community. And for that I am truly grateful.

THAT WAS FAST In the last week alone, the Democrats in the Senate and the President himself have made it clear that they believe President Obama’s political agenda is the most important thing to them. Not the American people, not national security and certainly not the balance of power established by the Constitution. In one instance last week, the Senate Democrats approved the “nuclear option” which takes away the power of the filibuster from the minority party. Aren’t their memories short? It was just a few years ago that the Republicans, who had control of the Senate when George W. Bush was president, threatened to do the same thing. Harry Reid and lots of other Democrats - including Barack Obama – railed against such an idea. They gave thunderous speeches on how unconstitutional the nuclear option was. Yet, when it was convenient for them and their wants, they forgot all of the reasons they opposed it. The silver lining to this is that the Democrats won’t always control the Senate. The other major game changer of the week came in the wee hours of the morning here in U.S. We, along with other major players, made an agreement with Iran. I haven’t had a chance to really read about this agreement, but from what I have read and seen, I have to wonder what John Kerry and the President are thinking? If John Kerry is looking for a legacy, he has three more years to get it done. This was just a bad decision, not only on the part of the United States, but of its allies who also entered into this agreement. Unfortunately, for us, meager citizens of these United States, until a different party holds the majority in D.C., we will continue to pay the price of this ideology. More and more are starting to see this and I hope that no matter what Hillary says in 2016, Americans learn from the mistake they made listening to Barack Obama. This is the week of Thanksgiving and while I suppose I will have a list of what I am most thankful for by the time I am done writing this, I would take this opportunity to ask my readers to remember the things we take for granted every day that many in other countries don’t have. Our right to bear arms and freedom of speech, our right to worship whichever god we choose without consequences and our right to love openly and freely. We are truly blessed here in America. Every week as I write this column, I realize how lucky I am to be able to do this. It is not something I take for granted. This year I am thankful for many things, my children, my parents, my sister, my nephews and my extended family. I am thankful for the many friends I made while working at Chelle’s and for those who have reached out to me at a gas station or stopped me at Wal-Mart to let me know how much you appreciate this article. I am thankful for those of you who read what I have to say and then respectfully disagree with me. We have interesting debates and I treasure them, because that is what this country is all about. I am thankful to Judi Statler for giving me the opportunity and to David Eales for allowing me to continue with this column. I hope that everyone has a good Thanksgiving with their families, safe travels to wherever you may be going and happy hearts this holiday season. I know there are some who have suffered tremendously this year and the holidays won’t be easy, but I believe if you lean on those around you, they will lift you up and carry you through your most difficult times. Final thoughts: “As we look forward to freedom, the shining city on the hill and the best days of America lying ahead, it is the men and women in uniform who protect, defend and make us proud to whom we should look and give thanks every night.” ~ Robin Hayes

The week just past, we reviewed in great detail the assignation of President John F. Kennedy. Do we know any more than we ever did about the circumstances surrounding the event? The presidency of JFK was often in the day, and repeatedly during the remembrance, referred to as Camelot. Indeed, the young, energetic, and charismatic president was sort of a magical change from the stodgy starched collars of proceeding politics. (Much the same as William, Kate and George.) Unfortunately, most media comparisons focus only on the conceptions that tend to promote their “catch phrases” and “buzz” words. The story of Arthur’s Camelot was filled with intrigue, incest, greed, benevolent and destructive magic, and all sorts of personal foibles; all neatly packaged in an aura of splendor. (And Madison Avenue thought they invented hype.) In both cases, Excalibur slipped away. Newscasters say the country lost its virginity that day. True, our president survived Pearl Harbor. Our president survived the burning of the White House (before which, it was pink). Our president survived 911. Though all of these events were body blows calculated to crush the American spirit, they likewise provided a viable target upon which to vent anger and frustration. November 22, 1963, did not. To the country, there was only the hollowness. A hollowness that has since led us to barricade ourselves behind computer screens, using only sanitized keypads to interact. The energy that led to man’s footprint on the moon has been conserved by replacing neb with robots, which pay no income or property or sales or whatever taxes, so there’s no money to put a government rocket into space and we therefore rely on Russia “Putin” our people in the space station. Could it really be that in the midst of the season or gimme a new light might be peeking through under the door? Though Pope Francis is the current symbol of Catholic faith, the feeling he spreads is universally understood. A hand to touch. A smile that is not through bullet-proof glass. The concept that there just aren’t enough sani-wipes to make everyone perfect so we might as well be ready to be content with being loveable. Take that thought shopping with you. Is a Black Friday bargain the perfect gift, or are you? If Thanksgiving is truly the time to be thankful (except for a day off---which most comfort servers, emergency personnel, and “Grinch Store” workers don’t get) then isn’t your thanks for what you have been given better exhibited than by yelling at store clerks or a TV screen? Tavish Toys (now typically made in countries with lead and air pollution, but no labor laws) only have to last ‘till Christmas. The spirit of giving of ourselves should last well beyond. (At least until Groundhog Day, which is sure to become a government holiday and sales event soon.) So, for the meantime: Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the day, because the dump (landfill) will be closed on Thanksgiving, but you can enjoy the entire “Alice’s Restaurant” (Arlo Gutherie) on 94.5 “The X” between 9 and 9:20 Thanksgiving morning.

over and over and shook his head as though he scarcely could believe what he was seeing. “Beats all. Casting like a bird dog. Hound from pup to papa, but casting like a bird dog.” “Aim to follow her?” Skeeter repeated. “She’s working fast and we’ll lose her if we don’t move on.” Cash started off first and they walked rapidly across the field, heading toward the bayou and the swamp beyond, and Lady flashed before them and was running easy through the sedge, never bounding, but running easy and covering the ground close and catching the breeze and the scents it bore. “Never saw nothing prettier.” Uncle Jesse had awe in his voice and bursting pride. “Like the boy said all along, she’s a hunter.” “Ain’t arguing so far,” Cash said. “Acts like a bird dog, but is she hunting birds?” “Ain’t saying.” Skeeter felt called upon to protect his dog and himself. “Ain’t tried to learn her to get birds. Not yet. Whatcha expect so soon?” Lady was out of sight in the thick growth and the two men and the boy walked to a knoll and stood there looking around and waiting for her to reappear. The bayou drifted by the edge of the field and Cash was the first to see Gates Watson standing by the bayou and looking their way, and he said, “Yonder’s Gates. Standing there like a stump.” “His skiff ’s tied to that ol’ dead gum,” Uncle Jesse said. “He come over in his skiff. Wonder what he’s up to?” And then they saw the chickens, five or six big Domineckers scratching along the bank of the bayou and Gates shooing them toward his boat. The chickens were clucking and fussing and Gates was waving his arms and then he looked over at the two men and the boy again, and called a greeting. It was then that Lady dashed out of the undergrowth and wheeled toward the bayou and froze to a point. Her curved tail poked up over her back and she spradled her front legs and sort of squatted and her nose was toward the bayou and the chickens there. Gates glanced at his chickens and up at the dog and stipped back into the shadows. Uncle Jesse grunted and looked at Skeeter and the boy’s lips started quivering and he struggled within himself to hold back his tears and his mortification. “Chicken dog,” Cash Ev-

ans said contemptuously. “She’s pointing them chickens.” There was nothing for Skeeter to say. There were the chickens and there was his dog on a frozen point, her nose low toward the ground and her tail rigid. He wanted to cry out that he hadn’t had a chance to teach her about birds, but only to obey his commands and to cast; that the rest would come later, that they expected too much from a waif dog. But he said nothing, only hurting deeply within himself. It was Uncle Jesse who spoke for her because the aged have more faith than the young and this is a truth that man alone really knows about himself; that the old have faith and the young only hopes. So Uncle Jesse said, “She’s got birds.” Cash laughed at him. “You’re crazy. She’s got chickens.” “She’s got birds.” It almost was a whisper as though he were saying it to himself and to any miracle power that would heed the yearning of toothless old age. “I’m standing here and saying she’s got birds.” He said it so calmly that Skeeter turned and looked at him and saw there the serenity and confidence of a man proclaiming a miracle because a miracle was met and right. “It’s chickens, Uncle Jesse.” The boy strained the words through the anguish of his hurt. “Ain’t no use of saying it ain’t. My dog’s pointing chickens.” “I’m standing here saying she’s got birds. Go to your dog, boy. Flush them birds and get her off that point. She’ll stand there till judgment day. She’ll hold right there until you let her break. She’s telling you she’s got birds and you got to believe her.” Lady turned her head slightly and looked back, but at the old man and not at the boy at all and then Skeeter, only to please the old man, stepped to his dog’s side and into the sedge before her; and then a whirr and a flurry of wings and the quail were up and away. Cash Evans forgot that the boy was night and took the name of his God, shouting his amazement. “Great God Al’mighty! She had birds! Casted and pinted and held them.” He began jumping up and down

in his excitement and his little pot-belly bounced and he jerked off his hat and threw it to the ground and jumped up and down some more. “Seen it myself. Me standing right here and I seen it.” “Told you she had birds.” Uncle Jesse’s voice still was calm. Skeeter just stood there, peering at his dog and at where the covey of quail had been, the broomstraw waving in the breeze and his dog at his feet and looking up at him. Then he knelt by her and the tears came and he put his arms around her neck and rubbed his cheek against her face. “My little ol’ dog. My little ol’ dog.” Uncle Jesse stood apart and in the dignity of a prophet, but Cash went to the boy and he, too, knelt by the dog and stroked her and muttered his praises of her triumph. “A hunter born,” he said. “And a hunter bred.” “Maybe.” The boy’s pride was far removed from the modesty of his word. “Is she gun shy?” Cash felt the muscles of her front legs and the depth of her chest. “Can you shoot over her?” Skeeter sniffed and brushed his sleeve across his nose and stood up, struggling for the dignity that came so naturally to Uncle Jesse. “Ain’t had a chance to shoot over her yet. “Can’t shoot quail until a cool spell hits and that’ll to two, almost three months.” “She’s got a hard mouth.” Cash ran his hand under her lower jaw. “She’ll fetch rough and tear birds.” “She’ll learn.” It was a boast and Skeeter did not mean for it to be, but now he felt that Lady could do anything. “You know how to break her of hard-mouthing.” The storekeeper gave the dog one more pat and stood up and watched her walk over to Skeeter and stand at his side. “Wire stick?” Skeeter asked and then looked away from Mister Cash and toward Uncle Jesse who was standing so near and yet who seemed so far apart, for such was his gravity and silence. “Wire stick is best,” Cash said. “Just wrap some wire around a stick and make her tote it and fetch it. She won’t bite down. That’ll break her of hard mouth. Some folks use bob-wire.”

Int. Pastor Willis Jones

Peggy Back served breakfast and Vickie Rouse gave thanks in prayer. Sunday school, Nov. 24, started at 9:20. Brian Meranda made announcements and prayed for healing, thanks and concerns. The lesson out of John 11:26-44 was on “Dealing with Death.” Christians can deal with death in light of the certainty of resurrection. The Savior’s promise, Jesus encouraged Lazarus’ grieving sister, Martha, by reminding her of the promise of resurrection for those who believe in Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you you would see the glory of God?” Christ came to give us a spiritual gift. Worship services began at 10:10 a.m. Brian Meranda opened with announcements and prayer. Carol Billett and Jenny Johnson led the music with “Trust and Obey” and “More about Jesus.” Interim Pastor Willis Jones gave a prayer for the lost and gave thanks for grateful for all God does. Music continued with “Nearer, My God to Thee.” Offertory hymn was “Have Faith in God.” Servers were Zach McCurdy and Scott Murray with prayer. The message from Interim Pastor Jones was out of Jeremiah 29:10-14. The Pilgrims sought out the Lord, and his will for their lives. Through doing this, the Pilgrims laid out the future prosperity of the Plymouth Rock Colony and the future of the United States. They put their trust completely in the Lord. We will, as a nation, be prosperous and healthy, ONLY if we follow the example the Pilgrims laid out for us in seeking out God’s will FIRST in our lives. We, as a nation, have a lot to be thankful for, especially the example of the Pilgrims. Seek ye FIRST the Kingdom of God! God will bless our Nation when we seek him first. The invitation hymn was “Something Beautiful” Ronnie Rouse closed with prayer. Perry First Baptist is located at 509 Salling Street. Our phone is 573-565-2460. We could use some help with quilting class, everyone is welcome.

Thanksgiving •The Giving of My Salvation Thanksgiving comes and we gather with friends and family to fellowship and give thanks for the year’s increase and the Lord’s blessings in our lives. My thoughts run back to the coat of many colors that young Joseph was given by his father, Jacob, because he loved him more than all the others. I believe that many of the things and stories of old in the Word represent the pattern of our salvation. So it is with this coat of many colors Joseph as given by his father who loved him so. It represents the mantle of our salvation. Given to us to wear by a father who loved us more than we can know. Its colors represent the days of our lives. Some red, some blue, some golden, some dark and some light. Its covering, the protection and keeping of the Father’s hand, the chastening of his love and the steadfastness of his mercies that are new every morning. Prayer; Thanks, Lord for this coat of my salvation this Thanksgiving Day. Do you have such a coat? Ask!

•• 2013 - 2014 Mark Twain Tigers Preview ••

Team Leadership is Tigers biggest strength this season

The Blue and White Mark Twain Tigers return to the court this season under the tutelage of Coach Chad Reading, now in his third year at the helm. He will be ably assisted on the bench by Coach Marty Hull. The Tigers look to improve upon last year’s 9-14 record, and 4-5 mark in conference play. Returning this year for Mark Twain include All Conference Ethan Anderson, Dalton Hawkinson and Ethan Clark. Lost to graduation were CCC Player of the Year Garrett Jarman, Logan Epperson and Austin Epperson. Players to watch for on Coach Reading’s list include Ethan Mack and Brett Peters. This is the last year for the Tigers to play in the Clarence Cannon Conference and the team looks to make a splash in conference play. “We had a pretty good year last year in the CCC,” said Reading. “If we can show we are capable of playing here and move on into the next conference and be even better that would be great.” “One of our team’s

strengths is our team leadership,” noted Coach Reading. “We look as one of our goals to finish the season while playing at our highest level. The coach’s philosophy is a simple one that the players will work hard all season to bring to fruition - hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. We have lots of good young players that will be developed throughout the season,” said Coach Reading. “We look to have a solid JV team with some sneaking into some varsity minutes.” The Tigers kicked off the season on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 25, 26 with games versus VanFar and Paris. This season the Tigers will host Marion County, Palmyra, Centralia, Brookfield, Clopton, Van-Far, Highland, Louisiana and Macon. They will travel to Paris, Community R-VI, Bowling Green, Wellsville, Monroe City, Louisiana, South Shelby and Clark County. The Tigers will also participate in the Monroe City, Bowling Green and Tony Lenzini Tournaments.

Coach Alex Brandenburg, in his second year as head coach will lead the Mark Twain Lady Tigers for the 2013-2014 season. Coach Jill Calvin will be assistant coach this season. The Blue and White Lady Tigers anxiously look to improve upon last year’s 7-18 overall record and 3-6 conference mark and finished 6th place out of 10 in the conference. The Lady Tigers return experience as returning letter winners include Mackenzie Grossmann - 2nd Team All Clarence Cannon Conference, Alicia Cole, Kyley Barnes, Chloe Majors and Michelle Epperson. Lost to graduation were Maygan Huff, Candace Gatson and Kayla Palmer. Other than his returning letter winners Coach Brandenburg has Bradie Hamilton, Macy Liter, Krysta Armour and Kaelee Ogle on his players to watch for list. “We are returning a good nucleus of our team from last year,” said Coach Brandenburg. “Our seniors all have a lot of varsity experience. We hope that our size can be an advantage at times. Mackenzie and Michelle are great shot blockers and rebounders. Kyley Barnes has also become a great

scoring threat and is a terrific rebounder.” The team’s goals go hand in hand - finishing in the top half of the conference and contending for a district championship. Coach Brandenburg picks Palmyra, Macon and Centralia as the top class of the CCC this season. But sees his charges climbing a position in the conference standings. “I think we have a legitimate chance of advance past the first round of districts,” said Brandenburg. “We think we can finish in the top half of our conference with the athletes we have and the experience. I feel like we are heading the the right direction.” Coach Brandenbrug’s coaching philosophy is a simple one - play smart basketball and tough defense. “We are constantly looking to take good shots around the basket,” explained the head coach. “And we will be depending on everybody to chip in and contribute offensively. The Lady Tigers kicked off the season on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 25, 26 with games versus Van-Far and Paris. This season the Tigers will host Marion County, Palmyra, Centralia, Brookfield, Clopton, Van-Far, Highland, Louisiana and Macon.

Ralls County FFA excels at County Fair

The 2013 Ralls County Fair was July 8-12. Mark Twain FFA had several FFA members exhibiting their efforts. All the FFA members will agree showing livestock/ hams is a huge responsibility and a great learning experience. Mark Twain FFA members show horses and show/ sell hogs, sheep, chickens, rabbits, and hams at the Ralls County Fair. In addition to exhibiting at the fair, FFA members prepared and served the yearly Buyer’s Dinner before the Livestock/Ham Sale. FFA members served pork burger and ham burgers, potato salad, chips, baked beans, and desserts. The Mark Twain FFA would like to thank FCS Financial for their generous support of the Buyer’s Dinner.
