Ninth District Representative Paul Quinn read the proclamations as he presented each individual recognition. “Life is about hard work and the effort you put into it,” said Representative Quinn. “All of our schools organizations (FBLA, FFA, etc.) are important part of our schools and we need to make sure we keep them active and supported.” “These students represented Paris R-II in a tremendous way,” added Representative Quinn. “I take pride in recognizing these students’ accomplishments. It is teachers such as Barb Mason that helps make our students successful.” “With over 8,000 students in San Antonio our students did very well,” said FBLA Advisor Barb Mason. To begin the assembly FBLA Advisor Barb Mason gave an overview of the

group’s accomplishments and individual awards. Not receiving a proclamation but recognized were Josh Ebbesmeyer and Paul Turner. According to Advisor Mason in an earlier article, Turner and Ebbesmeyer received their America level recognition. The America level is the highest level of the Business Achievement Awards. The Business Achievement Awards (BAA) is an aggressive, self-directed, results-based business and leadership program designed to complement academics while accelerating a student’s leadership skills. The awards focus on the words surrounding the FBLA Crest: Service, Education, and Progress. The individual recognition is a four-tier program (Future, Business, Leader, America) aligned with the FBLA-PBL Goals, NBEA Standards, and Career Clusters. In addition to receiving their America level pin at the National Leadership Conference, Paul and Josh received an America ribbon and certificates of recognition. Josh and Paul were also recognized during the Awards of Excellence with their names being displayed as BAA America level recipients. FBLA members attending the FBLA

Cancer support in Monroe County is incredible. The county has a very well organized and supportive Relay For Life contingent; an extremely active Monroe County Cancer Supporters group; active youth involvement with 4-H as witnessed by the Pink Out Basketball Game and Jacquie’s Barn; and now add to that a driven Barking Butterfly group that took the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, in Columbia, by storm. Wanting to get Monroe County on the Komen map for support, the Barking Butterflies – Carley McCall. Morgan McCall, Kendall Mason, Grace Peak and Camryn Crist decided to get involved and bring the largest group in the race to garner some attention for Monroe County. It worked The girls worked and worked to make sure that they had enough team members,

In the final count, Monroe County brought approximately five percent of the race total with them – the county was over 140 members strong. All Monroe County team members wore specially designed t-shirts to stand out in the crowd of over 2,000 participants on race day. Paris R-II Science Teacher Cloe Billington was the finished in second place for the race. Her time was 22:51 and she received 2nd in the women’s division “The race was so much fun – it was great to hang out with everyone that participated,” said Barking Butterfly Carley McCall. The Komen Foundation offers grants through its Mid-Missouri affiliate. But Monroe County is not in the coverage area. The Barking Butterflies are trying hard to make sure that Monroe County is added to that coverage area. The race was a great start! In 2008, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure celebrated the 25th anniversary of the event, the largest series of 5K runs/fitContinued to page 8

Parking In Those Blue Spaces

From the Appeal archives

There are so many of us who are hurting in these hard times that we easily overlook some of the things we wouldn’t ordinarily do or say. We are more on edge and selfabsorbed and common courtesy and thoughts about the need of others in the community are not as sharp as usual. When that happens reminders are in order. Sometimes the elderly, the ill and the handicapped people around us tend to suffer the most from our departure from our usual attention to the rules. One of the things that we observe our local and visiting citizens doing in this regard is ignoring handicapped signs and designated parking spots. It happens at the grocery store in a nearly vacant parking lot, at the convenience stores when there are plenty of other options or on Main Street where there are open marked spots a few feet ahead or behind. Most of us, when we see this, mumble something like “idiot” and shake our heads knowing we have seen these folks before blocking the entrance to the high school lot or double parking along Main Street so we all can go around into oncoming traffic. But the handicapped parking violations carry a big fine reminder when they are enforced and they should be enforced. A new state law provides for “accessible” parking with increased spots required including a straight path to the store or other destinations for those in a wheelchair who come by van. There will be a wholesale crying and gnashing of teeth if substantial fines are imposed for these violations and no doubt some whining about taking away our rights to park wherever and however we d--- well please. To that we can only respond that we truly hope that you nor no one close to you is even disabled, injured or unable to walk very far. We owe those that are the respect and decency not to use their parking spaces because we are in a hurry or just plain lazy. It’s not so hard to avoid when you get used to it. RJF

Just Ask Dave... by David Eales Publisher/Editor Hope! - A small word with a big meaning. Each week I hope the Coyotes and Panthers, in all areas - football, softball, baseball and golf will win all their games. I hope my Washington Nationals and Redskins win their games or at least in the baseball team’s case - their series. I hope for a solid economy and for success in our city, our county, our state and our country. I hope for good health in my life and in that of my family and friends. But most of all I use that word in a little different way as I have hope by the actions of my neighbors. David Eales I watched the Monroe Cancer County Supporters, started by the dreams of two ladies, Joanne Bonney and Melinda James, not only grow and give hope to the residents of the community touched by this dreaded disease but to the people they help and the families they give respite to. I have hope watching the 4-H build a barn in memory of their former 4-H leader who gave them hope for years with her steady commitment to the county and its youth. But this week again I have been inspired and led by the youth of our county, by the Barking Butterflies as their spread their wings - decided that it was not fair that the Komen Foundation did not affiliate Monroe County with its Mid-Missouri organization. These young ladies took the lead and decided that they would have the biggest team at the 2012 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, in Columbia. With the help of the Monroe County Cancer Supporters and others and with work, work, work, the Barking Butterflies had over 140 members at the race. Each team member in a unique T-shirt signifying Monroe County was there. This amounted to approximately five percent of the total race members. Not bad for young ladies from Monroe County. Monroe County made its impression on the Komen Foundation as Cloe Billington finished second in the Women’s Class with an amazing display of speed; the county had the largest number of runners on a team; the team helped insert the race packets; and the vibrant “hope’ of the Barking Butterflies and the Monroe County Team was everywhere infusing the crowd with a personal hope of their own - the hope that everyone can help make a difference. Congratulations to all the team members and the hope they provided to people they do not even know! On a personal note - next Wednesday, Sept. 26, the Monroe County Historical Society will hold an “Open House” at the Historical Room, in Paris City Hall. Not only is there an Open House but the Historical Society is renaming the room in honor of former Society President and County Historian Nancy Stone, at 2 p.m. There should be standing room only at the renaming ceremony. Not only to honor Nancy but to thank her for sharing her love of history with many of us in this county. If you know anything about Nancy you know that she lived and breathed history. History is what we have left after time has passed and our memories fade. On Wednesday, Sept. 26, come share history as this wonderful woman is given her place in history!

Have a great week!

Just a Thought

by Lisa Talton

He’s a Little Runaway (Part 2)

So there I am, attempting to run towards them all the while blowing this whistle. The key word here is definitely ATTEMPTING. Trying to muster up extra breath to blow that whistle when I was already way out of breath from trying to run proved to be an impossible mission. I went from running, to a very slow jog, to a fast walk, and then finally to a strollin-the-park like pace. As I looked back it was absolutely embarrassing how little ground I had gained. I’m not sure if they even heard my whistle but I could see the one on the bike coming towards me and thought it looked like the one on foot was also coming back towards the house. As the one on the bike gets to me he tells me that he wasn’t running away but had went after his brother to convince him to come back home. And I guess he was pretty convincing because I could now confirm that his brother was in fact heading back towards us. I decided to stop where I was and make him come to me. I did this not only for effect but also because I was completely exhausted from my run and whistle workout. When he finally got to where I was I noticed he was carrying two shirts and two pair of shorts in his hand. Then I said something I probably should not have but I couldn’t help myself. “Where is your change of underwear? You have two changes of clothes but no clean underwear?” He looked at me and said, “Ooops I forgot.” So we start walking back to the house and I asked him why he was running away. After a period of silence he said

this: “I know this might sound dumb mom but I am the only one who hasn’t got anything big and special.” I was very confused as to what he was talking about and I also couldn’t believe that he would try and run away because of not getting something. It was just very out of character for him. We are not and have never been a family of a lot of things but maybe it bothered him more than I knew. I asked him to explain what he was talking about. He went on to tell me his twin brother had gotten a bike. His older brother had gotten a keyboard and his sister was about to get a notebook. Well, I then reminded him that I got his brother’s bike at a yard sale because he had been asking for one and I happened to see one. His older brother had been talking about wanting his own keyboard because his sister was tired of him playing hers so when we were asked if we wanting a keyboard that someone was giving away we said sure. Then as far as his sister’s notebook, she didn’t even have it yet but was saving up her own money to buy one. After I explained it that way to him he said he understood and that he just wanted something special also. I told him I didn’t mean for it to seem like he was the only one not getting anything. I then asked him what it was that he wanted so we would know in case it came around like the other items did. He looked at me and said. “I don’t know. I can’t really think of anything right now.” Wow! Really? We just went through all of that and he couldn’t even name anything he wanted? Then I thought, maybe that was his way to get some extra attention and to feel special.. I just hope next time giving him some extra attention doesn’t involve so much cardio!!!!!

Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012

Daughters of American Revolution instrumental in Constitution Day Sept. 17, 2012, began the annual national celebration of Constitution Week. The week long commemoration of America’s most important document is one of our country’s least known official observances. Our Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom, and to ensure those inalienable rights to every American. The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started many years ago by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). In 1955, the Daughters petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into Public Law #915 on August 2, 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The aims of the celebration are to (1) emphasize citizens’ responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution, preserving it for posterity; (2) inform the people that the Constitution is the basis for America’s great heritage and the foundation for our way of life; and (3) encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787. The United States of America functions as a Republic under the Constitution, which is the oldest document still in active use that outlines the self-government of a people. This landmark idea that men had the inalienable right as individuals to be free and live their lives under their own governance was the impetus of the American Revolution. Today, the Constitution stands as an icon of freedom for people around the world. “We must remember and teach that those who wrote the Constitution believed that no government can create freedom, but that government must guard freedom rather than encroach upon the freedoms of its people,” stated Merry

Ann T. Wright, President General of the DAR. “The Constitution by itself cannot guarantee liberty. A nation’s people can remain free only by being responsible citizens who are willing to learn about the rights of each arm of government and require that each is accountable for its own function. Therefore, Constitution Week is the perfect opportunity to read and study this great document which is the safeguard of our American liberties. We encourage all citizens across the country to take time this week to guard that which is committed to us by our forefathers... our freedom.” DAR has served America for 122 years as its foremost cheerleader. In 1928, the Daughters began work on a building as a memorial to the Constitution. John Russell Pope, architect of the Jefferson Memorial, was commissioned to design

the performing arts center, known as DAR Constitution Hall. Today, DAR Constitution Hall is the only structure erected in tribute to the Constitution of the United States of America. Known as the largest women’s patriotic organization in the world, DAR has 170,000 members with approximately 3,000 chapters in all 50 states and 11 foreign countries. The DAR has long promoted patriotism through commemorative celebrations, memorials, scholarships and activities for children, and programs for new immigrants. For more information about DAR and its programs visit or call (202) 628-1776. James Monroe Chapter in Paris would be happy to provide information and assistance also. They have public meetings on the third Thursday of each month.

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

The Sunday, Sept. 16 services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Patti Grimmett playing “As the Deer Panteth for the Water so My Soul Longeth After Thee” followed by the call to worship, “Holy, Holy, Holy,” “O Day of Rest and Gladness,“ and “Come Thou Fount” led by Debbie Carey. Pastor John Grimmett led the unison prayer. Next Sunday Jim Beuter and Maxine Adams will be married during the morning service. Sunday, Sept. 30 at 10:45 a.m. the South Fork and Paris churches will hold a joint service at Paris Presbyterian followed by a carry-in dinner. Pastor John and Patti played guitar as Patti sang “Holy is the Lord” for the special music. The morning message “Rest in Peace” was based on scripture from Exodus 20:8-11, the fourth commandment, “remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” Things are different now than they were 50 years ago when everything was closed on Sunday and it was a day of rest. Today everything is open on Sunday and for many people it is just another day. People get up on Sunday morning with intentions of going to church but decide they are too tired or too busy. God created us to work. We are to work six days and worship and rest on the seventh day. It is a blessing from God to be able to work. What does God require? We are to frequent the church of God on the day of rest, proclaim the gospel, maintain the church, hear God’s word, participate in communion, witness baptism, pray, contribute to the needs of the poor, cease from evil works and yield to the Lord. Sunday is not meant to be a burden on us, it is a day to celebrate. Celebrating Christ is what resting is all about. Everything we think we need to get done on Sunday will still be there tomorrow. On Sunday we celebrate the eternal rest and peace we will experience in heaven. We need to rest in the rhythm of grace and peace on Sunday. The offering was taken by Max Tilt and Kaylee as Patti played “Fairest Lord Jesus” followed by the congregation singing the Doxology and a prayer of thanksgiving by Pastor John. The service closed with Pastor John giving the benediction with the congregation singing the response, “God Be With You.” Patti played “O Worship the King” as all retired in fellowship. Services are held every Sunday at 9 a.m. and all are invited to worship with us. “As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.” 2 Samuel 22:31

“The Word of God” was the title of Pastor Kenny Sharp’s sermon with scripture text taken from John 1:1-2. Every answer you will ever need is in the Word! There are 6,000 plus promises given to us from God through the Word. We need to use it defiantly against he enemy.

Perry Christian Church

Pastor David Todd

“You shall love your neighbor as yourself” set the tone for the Sunday, Sept. 16 Perry Christian Church worship hour. “Open Our Eyes, Lord” was sung by the choir. The candles were lit by Emily and Caytlyn at the beginning and during the lighting of the second candle as the focus on children. Glenna Johnson gave the meditation. Pastor Todd welcomed Jim and Ricki Wells as guests this morning and led the Call to Worship. “My Jesus, My Savior” was sung in praise. Joyce Coleman announced the arrival of a new great grandson (Cross Scott). We were happy to have Harlan and Connie Murray back. “Til the Storm Passes By” led to prayer and concerns. New on the prayer list are Jeremy Hays and Emily Sullivan. Bob Laudeman, Gene Schlueter, Slim McLaughlin and Jill Lewellen were also mentioned for prayers. The choir’s response was “Lord, Listen to Your Children Praying”. Pastor’s meditation and singing “At the Cross” led to sharing the Lord’s Supper. Greg Harrison and Jill Lewellen were elders. James Parker, Tom Hurley, Carol Norman and Jim Gay were deacons. The choir’s special was “Beautiful Savior” It is nice to have the choir’s return from their vacation. Jeannie Gay led the children’s moment by showing the measuring of different things but that God’s love and friendship could not be measured. By God giving His Son we received the full measure of His love. Susan Todd read Mark 8:27-37 for pastor’s sermon “Jesus Brought Blessings Into the Lives of Children”. Jesus said “follow me and I will show you the way” to His disciples. Live a life in which you make sacrifices for the good of others. The invitation hymn was “Jesus is Calling”.

Paris First Baptist Church

John Mitchell gave the children’s sermon. He asked if any of them had been lost. Some said yes and one said they have cried when they were lost. Sometimes we are afraid. Jesus was God’s son. When Jesus was twelve years old, He and His family came to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. On the way home after traveling for a day His parents discovered He was not with them. They returned and found Him in the temple listening and asking questions. He thought His parents would know he had to be there. Wesley Hammond’s sermon was from Colossians 2:16-23, entitled “Life Together: How do you live?” Sometimes we put too much emphasis on following sources other than God. There are three groups of people, 1) the lost, 2) Christians who depend on other intellect and 3) spiritual Christians who depend solely on God, with Christ as their example. Paul writes to the people of Colosse. Why do you still follow earthly rhetoric and practices rather than Christly teachings? Do not allow yourself to be judged by others or allow them to disqualify you (verses 16 and 17) by teachings and practices that do not pertain to the reality found in Christ. Today, we should be prepared to pay the price for not conforming to senseless teachings and ways of life that are often more popular. We must not become impatient but wait on God. We are created for eternity.

Car crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teenagers, claiming the lives of 3,000 each year. But you can play an important role in keeping your kids safer behind the wheel. State Farm® offers a variety of free tools and helpful resources, such as Road Trips® and Road Aware®, at its Teen Driver Safety Website. In addition, use these ideas to start the conversation with your teen about risky driving behaviors: Create a friendly competition. Download the State Farm® Driver FeedbackTM app to your smartphone, make sure the volume is off, the phone is placed where it will not distract the driver and let the driving fun—and education—begin. As you travel, the app measures driving behaviors, including acceleration, braking and cornering; traffic congestion; and the condition of the road. The app gives you a score for the trip, along with helpful suggestions on how to improve your driving on your next trip. Who will get the better score: you or your teen? Sign an agreement. A teen who has completed a driver’s education course knows the basics but lacks experience and doesn’t necessarily understand the complexities of everyday driving. Set written guidelines that both you and your teen can refer to, and sign the agreement. Include goals for your teen, as well as penalties for violations. When each goal is achieved—such as remaining incident-free for six months after getting the license—offer positive feedback and increased driving privileges. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers this driving agreement as an example. Be a good example. A teen will be quick to dismiss the driving rules you put in place if you don’t follow the rules yourself. Never talk on the phone or text while driving. Obey the speed limit and keep your emotions in check when you’re behind the wheel. In 2007, with the encouragement and support of State Farm, Congress declared the third week of October National Teen Driver Safety Week. Get your family, your teen’s school and your community involved with educating young drivers about safe driving practices.

County Gardeners to decorate Main Street

Public defenders to limit cases

Public Defenders in many parts of the state will be counting the hours next month. And when they reach a set number, they will close their doors. The state supreme court has ruled that public defenders can refuse to take more cases when their workload becomes so great they cannot effectively represent additional clients. Defenders in seventeen court circuits start keeping track of their case load hours in October. After they hit their

maximum, judges will have to find a different way for indigent clients to be represented in court. State Public Defender Cat Kelly says ten or twelve more circuit public defenders will start the process in the next month or two. Three offices are not exceeding their maximum allowable case load but she says those three–in Kirksville, Moberly, and Maryville–are at capacity. Kelly says defenders are meeting with judges to establish a new system.

She says some judges might decide to have defenders focus only on the more serious crimes. Others might draft private attorneys to represent indigent clients. Last year the public defender system handled 84,000 cases. Questions about overworked defenders failing to properly represent clients have put some defenders before a state disciplinary board. Kelly hopes the new system ends that threat for her employees.

Where Does our Food Come From?

Where does our food come from is one of the many questions that is asked by a child. While studying the many products that come to us from the farm, the students in Mrs. Prior’s kindergarten class at Perry Christian Academy received firsthand experience in the butter making process from start to finish. Students vigorously shook their creamy liquid as they learned how milk proteins become sticky and attach to each other in the process of creating butter. The students not only had a great time making and eating their creation but learned the process it takes to get food from the farm to our table. (Top) Pictured are kindergarten students Sam Northcutt, Brady Roland, Shylah Keeter, Ethan Griggs, Anthony Duncan, Caden Smith, Rachel Hodges, Timmy Knight and Kevin Cruz enjoying their homemade butter. (Bottom) Sergeant Brent Bernhardt from the Missouri Highway Patrol visited Perry Christian Academy to talk to the students about Seat Belt Safety. He brought his “rollover vehicle” to demonstrate the danger of not wearing your seat belt.

Child Passenger Safety Week helps educate parents on car seats Car crashes are the number-one killer of children 1 to 12 years old in the United States. In 2011, 12 children in Missouri under the age of 8 were killed, and 1,778 were injured in traffic crashes. During Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 16-22, parents and child caregivers are encouraged to participate in a safety seat check up and find out from experts how best to protect their children. The annual campaign includes education on proper safety seat installation and use as well as increased law enforcement cracking down on Missouri’s child safety seat law violators. The wide range of car seat models on the market today leaves more than a few parents confused. A National Highway Traffic Safe-

ty Administration study revealed that nearly 75 percent of parents don’t know how to use child safety restraints properly. Child Passenger Safety Technicians in Missouri report an even higher misuse rate. “Appropriate car seats are very important for kids’ safety. Missouri law requires all children under eight to be in an appropriate child safety seat or booster seat, unless they are at least 80 pounds or 4 feet 9 inches tall,” said Leanna Depue, executive committee chair for the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety. “It’s also very important to change seats to accommodate their growing bodies.” “Properly securing your child in a safety seat is about more than

following the law though,” Depue said. “Safety seats prevent serious injuries and could save your child’s life.” National Seat Check Saturday is Sept. 22. Technicians will provide on-site car seat checks and educa-

tion at locations throughout Missouri. To find a safety seat check event in your area, visit seatcheck. org. For more information visit Buckle Up and Arrive Alive.

No Pumpkins This Year for Fall-In-To Paris

Well as we all know this year was very very dry. Some people’s crops made it and some other people’s didn’t quite make it. My pumpkin crop this year started out great but when it was all dry. We watered them every night but it just got too hot and the plants cooked. All my jack-o-lanterns, white pumpkins, cinderellas, and warty pumpkins died. We had 35 small pumpkins but I donated them to a cancer painting thing. So then you now know I will not be selling my trailer loads of different verities of pumpkins this year. I would of changed the weather if I could for my pumpkins, but I couldn’t so I am very sorry. There is always next year. I will be at Fall Into Paris, but I will not be selling pumpkins. I am very, very sad but I hope to see you at Fall-InTo Paris this year and the future years.

Valentine’s Day


The Paris Coyotes (1-3) hosted the Knox County regales and played excellent football for the first half and trailed only 16-12 at the half. However, Knox County put 29 second half points on the board and saw the Coyotes fall 4512. Offensively, a big catch for 13 yards by Trae Hammond in the first quarter gave the Coyotes their first visit to the red zone and Steven Hayhurst then hit Slater Stone in the end zone for 7 yards for the first Coyote touchdown. Paris trailed 8-6 after a missed conversion. Paris took the lead 12-8 that started with a Hayhurst interception. Hayhurst then handed off to Slater Stone who rambled 60 yards for as huge gain. On 4th and 6 Hayhurst hit Stone at the one foot line for a Coyote first down. On the next play, Hayhurst scored on a one yard quarterback keeper and the Coyotes led 12-8. That would be the last score for the Coyotes and Knox County added 35 unanswered points for their 45-12 win. Hammond led all receivers with 49 yards including a long 36-yard strike deep into Eagle territory.

Stone was the leading rusher just missing the century mark with 91 yards on 13 carries, for a sevenyard per carry average. Defensively, it was another big night for Justin Wolfe as the hard charging Coyote had six tackles but also caused and recovered two fumbles. Leading the defense was Stone with nine tackles, Hayhurst with eight and Kole Berry and Dillon Miller dropping seven rushers apiece. Corey Court and Shane Umstattd led the defense with two sacks each. “We played good in the first half, we just have to figure out how to string two halves together,” said Head Coach Gary Crusha. “We have a lot of thing to improve on. We are young and inexperienced in several positions and it shows. Our goal is to get a little better each week and get our guys a little more experience playing varsity football, so we can raise our level of play.” Statistics Scoring: Slater Stone 7 yard pass from Steven Hayhurst ; Hayhurst one yard run. Passing: Hayhurst 9 completions in 21 attempts for 108 yards.

Receiving: Laine Forest 1 reception for 1 yard, Trae Hammond 2/49, Stone 6/58. Rushing: Hayhurst 11 carries for 29 yards, Justin Wolfe 5/12, Stone 13/91. Defensive Statistics Tackles: Dillon Miller 7 (1 for a loss), Shane Umstattd (2 for a loss), Hayhurst 8, Laine Forrest 5, Justin Wolfe 6, Trae Hammond 5, Austin Wilkerson 1, Stone 9, Lawrence Parrott 5, Corey Court 2 (2 for a loss), Dylan Langerud 2 (1 for a loss), Brady Lehenbauer 1,

John DeOrnellis 2, Kole Berry 7, Zach Baker 1, John Stahlschmidt 1, Andrew Hill (1 for a loss). Interception: Hayhurst 1. Fumble Recoveries: Wolfe 2. Caused Fumbles: Wolfe 1. Paris still finds itself in fifth place in district scoring and if the season ended today the fifth place Coyotes would travel to Schuyler County for the 10th game of the season.

Lady Panther Angela Purdy goes over 100 K’s for season The Madison Lady Panthers had two fantastic games in the Paris Tournament even though they fell to Clark County 3-1 and North Shelby 1-0 they were in both games throughout the game and a hit in the final inning could have won both games. Clark County Angela Purdy singled in the first inning but could not advance. In the second a double and a triple scored a Clark County run before Purdy shut down the Lady Indians batters with two K’s. Defensively in the third, Niki Sims ranged deep into the hole to grab a Lady Indian liner. In the fourth Purdy singled, stole second but was stranded. She then struck out two more Clark County batters to end a threat. Clark County 1-0. Madison loaded the bases in the fifth, Allie Dunkin walked, Hanna Grimsley reached on a fielder’s choice when Clark County cut down Dunkin at second. Sims singled. With runners on the corners Jessica Stoebe walked to load the bases but the Lady Panthers could not score the runners. Clark 1-0. In the bottom of the inning, Clark County sandwiched a walk, a double and a walk around two strikeouts to score two runs and take a 3-0 lead. In the last inning, Krystal Sanders was hit by a pitch, she advanced to second on a passed ball and scored on an Allie Dunkin rope to the fence for a double and an RBI. Breanna Hancock singled but the Lady Panthers could not get that tying hit and fell 3-1. Purdy punched out seven hitters

in the contest to close in on 100 K’s. North Shelby In a pitchers battle, Angela Purdy struck out seven Lady Raiders and gave up a single run in the third inning in the 1-0 loss. The best scoring chance for the Lady Panthers was the first inning when they had two bases runners on hits by Purdy and Samantha Le-

Grand. Breanna Hancock had the other two Lady Panther hits in the game. Madison had a base runner in every inning but could never get that crucial hit to drive in a run. Madison hosts South Shelby on Monday, Sept. 24 and Marion County on the Sept. 28. There is only Fayette then to play before districts.

The Paris Lady Coyotes defeated Community R-VI 5-1 in the first round of the Paris Tournament; defeated South Shelby 9-2 to advance to the final versus Clark County but lost in a thriller 6-4 to capture second place in the tournament. Clark County In the first inning, Jill Nobis ripped a liner to left and advanced to second on a passed ball. In the bottom of the inning, Clark County scored a three spot to lead 3-0. Sirena Bell walked in the second inning, Bell was erased off base on a fielder’s choice hit by Josey Ball, Ball scored when Dede Bounds lifted a deep drive to the fence for a triple. Paris chipped into the Clark County lead 3-1. Clark County added two more runs in the bottom of the second to lead 5-1. There could have been more damage but Shortstop Sydnee Playter made a fantastic running catch to register an out. Nobis reached base in the third on an error, advanced to second when Haley Fredrick was hit by a pitch and to third on a Payton Gruber fielder’s choice. Nobis scored on a groundout by Kayla Langerud and it was 5-2 Clark County. Clark again scored a run in the bottom of the inning and led 6-2 after three innings. In the fourth Josey Ball blasted a high fastball to the fence for a double. Lauren Embree singled her home and Paris trailed 6-3. Paris did not score in the fifth but a great defensive play kept them in the game. With one out and a runner on first a ball was drilled to Nobis who made a great running try but just got the tip of her glove on the hard hit ball in the hole. Fortunately for Paris the ball was deflected by Nobis directly to Dede Bounds who caught the ball and then fired it to first to double up the runner and squelch a Clark County rally. In the sixth inning, Josey Ball walked, stole second, advanced to third on a passed ball and score on a wild pitch. Dede Bounds and Sydnee Playter both walked but the Lady Coyotes could not get a hit to advance them and the score after six innings stood at 6-4. In the seventh, the last at bat for the Lady Coyotes, Jill Nobis walked, stole second and advanced to third on a Payton Gruber single. Gruber stole second but two Lady Coyote batters could not score the tying runs and the final stood at 6-4 and the Lady Coyotes captured second place. Community R-VI In the first inning, Payton Gruber

walked, stole second, went to third on a passed ball and scored on a wild pitch. Kayla Langerud also walked and Paris led 1-0. Langerud punched out two batters and threw out another in the first. Paris added two more runs in the third when Haley Fredrick walked; Gruber singled and stole second after Fredrick advanced on a passed ball. With runners on second and third Langerud ripped a two RBI single. Sirena Bell also added a single in the inning and Paris led 3-0. Defensively, Josey Ball made a great running catch in left. Community R-VI added a run in the fourth to trail 3-1. Paris seemed to seal the game in the fifth when Nobis walked and stole second and third. Langerud also walked and stole second. Sirena Bell then stroked a double in the gap to score two runs and a 5-1 Paris lead. In the sixth solid infield play from Bell and Nobis ended the Community R-VI threat and sealed the 5-1 Lady Coyote win. South Shelby Paris again led of the game as the visitors and Nobis ripped an infield single. Nobis was erased on a fielder’s choice by Haley Fredrick who stole second and scored on a Payton Gruber long RBI double to

the fence. 1-0 Lady Coyotes. Defensively, Nobis ranged far to her left, picked up a roller and tossed out a speedy runner. Langerud struck out a Lady Cardinals batter with bases loaded to end the inning. In a dream fourth inning, Paris sent 12 batters to the dish while scoring 8 runs. Payton Gruber led off the inning with a triple, Sirena Bell singled her home, after a fielder’s choice, Lauren Embree singled. Dede Bounds, Sydnee Playter, Jill Nobis, Haley Fredrick, Gruber and Langerud all singled in a row each driving in a run except Langerud who drove in three runs with her bases loaded single over the second baseman’s head. Lady Coyotes 9-0. Josey Ball and Lauren Embree both made solid running catches to end a Lady Cardinal threat as they plated two runs in the fifth to pull within 9-2. The game ended with the bases loaded by South Shelby and a grounder to Sirena Bell who raced to the bag and beat the runner for the final out and a 9-2 Lady Coyote victory.

Missouri in the Civil War G len’s T.V. and Satellite Most people don’t realize the significance of Missouri’s role in the Civil War. It began as one of the most vital states to the Union, and ended in the third most battles of the entire war. With Missouri so much further north than the other slave states, the Confederacy regarded it as a liability too isolated from the South to obtain, or occupy. Their only interest in Missouri was for volunteers to go south and fight the war. The North realized how vital Missouri was, for many reasons. Missouri was indeed the gateway to the west, with several major wagon-trails originating there, and railways spanning the state from it’s eastern to western borders. The Missouri, Mississippi and Ohio rivers, either passed through or touched the state. Missouri was also rich in raw materials including led for bullets, iron for cannonballs, and enough agricultural to feed an army. The North strategized that if they would be forced to give up the deep south, they would never give up Missouri, and they reacted

quickly. Within twenty-two days after South Carolina seceded, federal troops arrived in St. Louis to guard the U.S. Sub-treasury, and the North quickly gained control of the railroads, rivers and most of the state. However, complicating the task for the Union, was that two thirds of Missouri’s population were of southern origin, and they proved to be a continuing threat to federal control. Particularly in Northeast Missouri, where the strong support of southern sympathizers pushed the federals to such brutality that it was reported in the New York Times, London Star and leading journals in Paris. St. Louis had a large supply of pro-Union, German immigrants that Republican Congressman Frank P. Blair soon made into the Home Guard. St. Louis eventually supplied more troops to the Union than any northern city, west of the Mississippi. Of the Irish in St. Louis there was a large proportion of young men whose hatred of the Home Guards was sharpened by the animosity of race and reli-

gion, and who soon filled the ranks of Minute Men. As the sun rose on the day of Lincoln’s inauguration, a rebel flag flew over the headquarters of the Minute Men in St. Louis. In August of 1860 Missouri had elected Claiborne Fox Jackson for Governor, who ran on the Douglas-Democrat principles that upheld the Union, despite of his plans for secession. By March 21st the General Assembly expressing the conservative and appeasing sentiment of the people whom had sent them to Jefferson City, refused to be dominated by the governor, and voted to stay in the Union. Missouri would be “armed neutral” in the conflict and not send materials or men to either side. Governor Jackson disagreed and began collecting guns and munitions. In April he called the General Assembly into special session and ordered the State Guard into summer encampments. By the beginning of May 800 men had reported for duty at Camp Jackson in St. Louis, which was within a half an hour’s

march of the arsenal. Hostilities between Governor Jackson and Union forces seemed inevitable. General William S. Harney, the Army commander in Missouri, consented to the PriceHarney Truce with Sterling Price, the Missouri State Guard commander. Frank P. Blair contacted Republican leaders in Washington, and within a few weeks, Harney was replaced by Captain Nathaniel Lyon from Kansas. Lyon immediately transferred the arms at the arsenal in St. Louis to Alton, IL. On May 10 Lyon and Blair surrounded Governor Jackson’s camp, and without firing a shot obtained the surrender of the State Guard unit, of whom refused to take an oath of loyalty. To punish and humiliate the State Guard Lyon paraded them through the streets of St. Louis between two columns of German Home Guards. The crowd of civilians watching, became hostile toward the Home Guards, cursing and spitting at them, and eventually throwing rocks. The soldiers Continued to page 12

were ordered to fire back into the crowd, which did not quell the growing violence. The mob tore up paving blocks from the road and threw at the troops. Gunfire erupted from both sides, and by nightfall 28 civilians were dead, with 90 more injured, including women and children. Lyon dismissed the Guardsmen in an attempt to stop the fighting, but the mobs continued throughout the night burning buildings. The next day seven more citizens were killed by the Home Guards. This became known as the “St. Louis Massacre”, and was the first blood-shed west of the Mississippi in the Civil War. The idea that Missouri could remain neutral was no longer an option. The next day, the Missouri General Assembly created the Missouri State Guard to defend the state from attacks from perceived enemies, either North or South. Governor Jackson appointed exGovernor Sterling Price to be its general. He was a man of character and influence who had served in the Mexican War. Price was a Unionist, and presided at the convention which had rejected secession. However, he had become outraged at the conduct of Lyon and the extreme Unionists, and accepted the position to lead the rebellion against them. Many other Missourians who initially wanted

to remain neutral, were now supporting the southern cause. In July The State Convention met, now almost all Unconditional Union men, and declared vacant all state-wide offices, including Governor and Lieutenant Governor, and appointed new people for the positions. The next day they were inaugurated, and Missouri then had two Governors and two sets of government. Aug. 14 St. Louis was put under martial law by federal authorities, and by August 30 all of Missouri was under martial law. Jackson’s government set up a provisional capital and convened in the town of Neosho. October 30, a bill was passed for Missouri’s secession from the Union, citing various “outrages” committed against the state, and the overthrow of its government by Lyon. November 28 Missouri became the 12th state admitted to the Confederacy.

By the end of the war Missouri was involved in 1,162 battles and skirmishes, with only Virginia and Tennessee surpassing them. 27,000 Missourians, both military and civilian were killed during the war. The state supplied 110,000 troops for the Union and a minimum of 40,000 troops to the Confederacy (actual number of Missouri Confederates is unknown as many joined non-Missouri units). Missouri sent more men to war than any other state in proportion to its population, and Governor Claiborne Jackson was the only sitting Governor to lead troops into battle during the Civil War.

The Battle of Vassar Hill, That Furious Ride & The Battle of Florida

Just north of Bible Grove and ten miles southwest of Memphis, in Scotland county Missouri, Confederate Colonel Joseph Porter’s force of 125 men were fresh with supplies and arms, they had recently obtained from a raid on the Union base at Memphis, just a few miles north. Many of them were stationed in the bush, well camouflaged, on both sides of the road down into the Fabius river valley, toward the bridge to the north. A small force was posted at the wooden bridge across the Fabius, as bait to lure an approaching federal patrol of 21 riders. The federal riders were part of Major John Y. Clopper’s 280man battalion, of the second Missouri Calvary “The Merrill Horse”, and Major John B. Roger’s detachment of the 11th Missouri State Militia. Clopper was in command of the Union force. The advanced Union patrol discovered the confederate scouts at the bridge and gave chase, driving them up the slope and into the ambush of confederate troops along the road. A round from muskets and shotguns at 10 feet killed or wounded 18 union troops. Porter ordered his men to pull back and wait for another Union advance. The second round was not as effective against the approaching federal riders, because by then they were alerted to their position. Clopper deployed his entire force of up to 280 men, making 7-8 additional charges, with each charge deflected by Porters men, concealed in the bush. After two hours of battle, and assuming Porter had a vastly superior force, Clopper withdrew. He was later criticized

for his battle tactics. This type of guerilla warfare by the confederates, earned them the name of “Bushwhackers”. The Union casualties were 24 men killed or mortally wounded, and up to 59 wounded. Porter had only two men killed and five wounded; including Captain Thomas Stasey who was mortally wounded attempting to help a Union Lieutenant who was pinned beneath his horse. The Union Lieutenant was Edward D. Stillson, who was then taken prisoner by Porter. Stillson remained prisoner for several days, of which he grew to respect the Confederate guerillas. Later, after Porter released him, he risked his life returning to his confederate captors to warn them of an advancing Union column. The battle of Vassar Hill, was also called the Battle of Oak Ridge by Colonel Porter, or the Battle of Pierces Mill by the Federals. From the battle of Vassar Hill, Porter’s men retreated south and in less than 24 hours were at Novelty, in Knox County, 64 miles away. There was possibly no stop between daylight Friday until eight o’clock Sunday morning, when they halted for 3 hours rest. They were in the vicinity of Whaley’s Mill, about three miles from Colonel Porter’s home, where he made a quick visit. They saddled up and left again on Sunday night, rode all day Monday and all night Monday night, with only a few short stops. The famous “Furious Ride” was continued until sunrise Tuesday Morning. Their horses were bred from the best blood of Kentucky. Many of them the men had raised

since they were foals, and they knew how to ride them well. Joseph A. Mudd, a member of Porter’s band at the time, later wrote a book titled “With Porter in North Missouri”. He reported Porter as saying, “The main reason I made this rapid march is that it is a good object lesson. It may teach the Federals that they must put a regiment into each county to stop me from recruiting in North Missouri.” At approximately four o’clock Tuesday morning, July 22, 1861 Porters band crossed a covered wooden bridge across the North Fork of the Salt River, near the village of Florida. About a mile from the North Fork by road was the South Fork covered bridge, where they stopped at the ford above to water their horses, and dismounted for a short encampment. Porter sent a commissary of three or four men to Florida for supplies. At sunrise the commissary was fired upon by a detachment of Major Caldwell’s battalion of the Third Iowa Cavalry, and one of them captured. Porter ordered a rapid move on foot against the enemy and directed Captain Penny to take twenty well-mounted men to their flank and rear. The men on foot took a shortcut through the woods, and raced to get there before the mounted men. When they arrived at the edge of the village, they found the Union soldiers had formed on the far side of a narrow street. The head of the Confederate column struck the Federals right and their rear had to run across

to take position on their left. The Federals called out to them not to shoot, that they belonged to their command, and then fired upon them, killing their Quartermaster. The Confederate’s right extended six or eight feet beyond the federals right, near the home of Dr. Johnson. Amid the whirling bullets, two women emerged from the home of Dr. Johnson, waving their handkerchiefs and shouting, “Hurrah for Jeff Davis! Give it to ‘em, my brave boys, give it to ‘em!”. Soon another young lady ran out of the house owned by Mr. Wilkerson, and shouted “They are running like dogs; give it to them, boys!” As it turned out, the Federals were retreating, and returned to Paris. During the battle, the Federals took prisoner a man named Fowler. When Union Lieutenant Hartman realized they were retreating, his shoved a revolver in Fowlers face and shot him dead, in front of Fowlers two brothers. The brothers wanted to take the two Union prisoners and hang them in retaliation. The prisoners begged for their lives, but the brothers and other men were less than sympathetic. Eventually Porter intervened and ordered a flag of truce be sent to Major Caldwell in Paris, and demand the surrender of Lieutenant Hartman. He would hold the two men as hostages, for the delivery of Hartmen. He knew Major Caldwell to be an honorable man and trusted he would do what was right. When the flag of truce returned it was revealed that

Hartman had been wounded in the engagement and had died. It was later revealed that he hadn’t died and served until the end of the war, when he was killed by his own men. The Federals suffered twenty-six men killed, wounded or missing. The Confederates lost two men, and two wounded, the Federals had 22 wounded and 2

captured. The Federals numbered fifty to sixty men in the battle, and reported the guerrilla force of being three hundred. Joseph A. Mudd contends that Porters band was only ninety-five men. With Porter in North Missouri by Joseph A. Mudd

Monroe County Appeal The Civil War in Missouri - The Summer of ‘62

14 Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012

The border wars of the 1850’s had given Missouri a bad name throughout the North, to the extent that when the war started the Union officers and soldiers entering or occupying the state, treated all the citizens as if they were secessionists. In the Spring of ’62 Governor Gamble informed the State Convention that “Our State has been visited by a class of troops who came with feelings of hostility to our people, and who under the guise of supporting the Union, perpetrated enormous outrages.” To make matters worse, the Union command insisted that there would be no neutrality in Missouri over the issues of the war. This meant that citizens who had families in the south, could not hold passive positions, and every view taken by the Union command must be supported by the people. General Halleck regarding this stated, “Those who are not for us will be regarded as against us. There can be no individual neutrality in the rear in Missouri. Let the people where you go distinctly understand this.” The first considerable outrages performed by the Union troops in north Missouri took place along the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad in July, 1861. Brigadier General John Pope was in command of the military districts of that area, with troops composed of volunteer regiments from Kansas, Illinois and Iowa. His actions in the summer of 1861 were described as that of a tyrant or a madman. After discovering a small force of State Guardsmen near Monroe City in mid-July, he took the view that the disturbances in the area were purely local, and that the people were fighting each other in order to quell long-standing feelings of personal hostility. He held all the citizens secessionist and Union both, responsible for the damages created by General Price’s guerrillas. He notified the district on July 21, 1861 that his investigations in-

dicated the destruction of bridges and culverts on the rail lines, were the responsibility of the inhabitants of the towns along the rails, if they hadn’t caused the destruction, they had done nothing to prevent it. He communicated to each town that it would be responsible for the security of the track, and if any further damage took place, a levy of money or property would be made to pay for it. He considered the matter closed, but the destruction to culverts and bridges continued by the guerillas, without detection. When Palmyra failed to prevent damage to trains nearby, Pope ordered the county court to pay for the damages, and money to ration and quarter the troops of which he’d been forced to order to guard the line. When the county and the city council of Palmyra refused to pay, Pope ordered his men to take what they needed from merchants and citizens of the town and along the railroad, and they did. Pope’s Illinois and Kansas troops looted, burned and generally mistreated Missourians as they came across them. Drunken soldiers stole horses and other livestock, and shipped them by rail to Illinois for sale, and took random shots at citizens working in the fields. On July 22, 1862, the St. Louis Republican reported that Union troops within Missouri were creating secessionists everywhere. July 22 General Schofield obtained authorization from Governor Gamble to put into effect a drastic manpower draft and published General Order 19, demanding every able-bodied man join one side or the other. It also provided for the random seizure of guns. Order Nineteen struck the already tense atmosphere in the state with extreme force. The ultimatum it created sent every rebel in the state to join the nearest guerrilla band. The order devised to subdue the guerrilla war resulted in its vast escalation. On August 6, after the battle of Kirksville, per General Order 19

General McNeil ordered fifteen prisoners shot, as they had violated their oaths of loyalty to the Union. He executed ten more of Porters men at Macon, on September 25. After Colonel Porter raided Pal-

myra and took Andrew Allsman as prisoner, McNeil sent a letter to Porter’s wife, with the intent of informing him that if Andrew Allsman wasn’t returned unharmed within 10 days, he would execute

During the Civil War, horses were an important part of the war. They were used by the cavalry, to move supplies and weapons, carry wounded and casualties and as personal transportation. Due to the fame of their riders many horses also were made famous. The following is a list of ten of the more famous horses according to the website Ajax: was ridden by Robert E. Lee early in the war. Ajax was returned to the farm as Lee considered the horse too big for his use. Brown Roan: another horse used by Lee early in the war. Brown Roan was considered too skittish and not up to the strains of battle. Traveler: Robert E. Lee’s favorite and most famous horse. The animal is buried at Washington and Lee University.
