More Cheating In Schools!

One of the by products of the information age appears to be a substantial increase in the instances of cheating in schools. A few months ago Harvard University caught 125 students that they claim had cheated on a final exam by sharing answers by texting and by email on the take home exam. We don’t and never will have an accurate fix on how many of our current high school students cheat or have cheated on tests. however current research suggests a number as high as 85 percent of high school students cheat. I’m not at all sure the 85 percent of those interviewed would own up to cheating under any circumstances but that the number of cheaters is rising is very clear. There is considerable pressure to do well at very early ages on tests that are perceived to affect students’ futures. Mixed with the very high costs of college, the possibility of scholarships and awards loom large for most students. Honesty is the best policy is taught in many, if not most, of our families. But negative examples exist in our large businesses, and cultures, phony drug trials, false advertising, athletes taking performance enhancing drugs and a whole lot of ordinary people are cheating on their taxes and on their spouses. Before we preach about cheating to our kids we should acknowledge the many examples of cheating by our own generation and that for those that share information on Facebook, texting and tweets, it may be yet harder to draw the line at sharing information about test answers and assignments that are given to measure individual knowledge and skills. To give back a consensus response is not being honest nor helpful in the future.

Solving a Problem That Doesn’t Exist We are apparently among the Red States that have put forward the idea that voter fraud is so rampant in our state that immediate legislation or other remedy is necessary. The evidence of individuals impersonating registered voters at polling places is slim to none. The perceived problem seemed more critical as the 2012 presidential election became closer and strangely enough most severe in the swing states like Pennsylvania and Ohio. Also very strange is the fact that minorities, the poor and seniors along with Hispanics are less likely to have drivers licenses or other identification issued by state or federal governments are also groups who generally had supported Democratic candidates in 2008. Whether or not this is some sinister plot by Red State powers that be to curtail the number of voters that turn out to vote for Democrats in 2012 or just some coincidence and that this concern over voter fraud existed for some time in the minds of concerned Republicans is not so important. With all of the inactivity of Congressional Republicans on much more important and immediate issues perhaps their state representatives and Senators can slow play this issue until a year without a Presidential election to prove the good faith of their motives and alleviate the current suspicious smell of dead fish connected to this issue.


Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, History shows that great civilizations are rarely conquered before being weakened or destroyed from within. They moved from apathy to dependency - then back to bondage. Could the history of Rome on the front page of the newspaper be passed off as today’s news? Where is our nation going? What do we wish for our children and grandchildren? We are becoming slaves on Uncle Sam’s plantation. Our freedoms are being usurped more and more each day. We have been truly blessed and have reached a standard of living never before known. And we did it in just a little over 200 years. Our Constitution has served us well, but it is being violated over and over again. The current administration has issued over 140 executive orders. We stand to lose the freedoms we enjoy as we see socialistic tendencies creeping into our lives. Our children and grandchildren face paying off a $16 trillion debt that is being added to at the rate of almost $4 billion each day!! Who of us can spend our way into prosperity? Proverbs 22:7 says “and the borrower is servant to the lender.” Do we want to be servants to China who presently holds much of our debt? Last week the Federal Reserve announced it will be printing money at the rate of $40 billion per month to prop up the economy, further eroding the value of the dollars we have in our savings or the dollar we spend at the grocery store or gas station. Our nation was established on Judeo-Christian principles, but I see a decline in spiritual values, moral stamina, and personal responsibility of citizens. It is our right and our privilege to vote, but if we vote blindly we may send our country into bankruptcy. I don’t trust the major networks media, nor some major newspapers and magazines. We need to pray for guidance and INFORM OURSELVES. Jane Wilsdorf, Holliday, Missouri

Just a Thought

Oh No!!! Not Again!!! (Part 1)

I have had several people ask me when I was going to write another mouse story. The bad news is (well, really the good news is) I haven’t seen a mouse in my house since we inherited an outside cat who happened to have two babies. I know they made for a good read but I can’t say I miss seeing the little guys. So for those of you who asked here is the my story I wrote about the mousecapades that happened over two years ago. I hope you enjoy!! After my children went to bed and my husband left to do something in the other room, I realize that I not only have the couch and television to myself but I have the WHOLE family room to little ‘ole me. So I fluff the pillows just right, swing my legs around and plop them up on the couch and then I lay back and relax. This is wonderful! I can pick what show I want to watch. I don’t have to watch a show that is rated for eleven year olds or younger or watch non stop ESPN coverage. I can pick a show- any show- that I want to see. I am loving life and really enjoying the moment when something happens that changes EVERYTHING. Out of the corner of my eye I see a quick dark flash jolt across the floor. I say to myself, “Oh no!!! Please no!! I know that is not a mouse.” For those of you who do not know-I do not like mice at all. Well, let me explain. I do not have anything against them personally but I do not under any circumstance want them in the same room as me. I know they exist and I know they have a purpose because everything that God created has a purpose but I don’t want their purpose to have anything to do with being around me. So I then call out to my husband and ask him to come here. He gets to the family room and I tell him I think I saw a mouse. I then jump off the couch and run into the kitchen and immediately get up on a chair.

My husband tells me to go get my oldest son-his partner in mice excavation. He thought he was still awake. I call my son’s name but he does not answer. I call it several more times and then my husband tells me he must be asleep and don’t worry about it. Well let me tell you I was definitely worrying about it because I knew if my son was not helping him get the mouse I was going to be recruited. I didn’t want to be recruited. I did not want to be part of his team. Not only did I not want to be part of it, I wasn’t even qualified. I didn’t have any prior experience, any qualifications or training in the area. And most importantly, how could I help him get a mouse when I was deathly scared of them and I was up on a chair? Then I did something I was not proud of. I did something that could take my name off the mommy of the year list. I did something very selfish. I went into my sons room and got right down by his side and started calling his name and asking him if he was awake. Then after I did not get a response I gave him a little tap on his side, still no reply so then I gave a little shake that eventually turned into a bigger shake that eventually turned into me waking him up. I know, I know I am a terrible mom! My son slowly opens his eyes and looks around the room very confused. I then say in a very calm and low voice, “There is a mouse in the family room and your dad needs you to help him.” And then of course because I am feeling a tad guilty for waking him up, I ask him, “Do you mind?” He said he didn’t mind and then told me he wasn’t all the way asleep anyway. (How cute is he? He was definitely all the way asleep but him saying that made me feel a little better.) We then walk towards the family room and my husband looks over at me and shakes his head. He knew the real deal. He knew I woke our son up because I was too scared to help him get the mouse. But I also think he was happy because he knew our son would be a whole lot more useful than I would be. (To be continued)

Poverty Awareness Day to send message of hope amid problems While it’s designed to paint a picture about the growing numbers of people facing hardship regionally, the upcoming Poverty Awareness Day in Bowling Green also is a chance for organizers to bring a message of hope. The event is co-sponsored by the not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC), Pike County People First and the Pike County Agency for Developmental Disabilities, and will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Bowling Green Town Center next to Walmart. “We certainly want to let as many people as we can understand that the numbers of folks facing poverty everyday is swelling,” said NECAC Pike County Service Coordinator Dana Gordy. “There are also a lot of people who are just a paycheck away from losing everything for which they’ve worked so hard. But we also want those who attend to see that there are programs and services available to help.” Up to 50 booths will be set up by service providers, businesses and organizations. Each will feature cardboard boxes to demonstrate the plight of the homeless and offer statistics about the growing poverty rate. “We have to address poverty because it’s an issue that affects all of us, whether we know it or not,” Gordy said. “We hope to create more partnerships that will address how to better serve the disadvantaged in our area.” The government’s latest poverty statistics were released earlier this year. They showed at least one of every 10 people in the Tri-

State area of Northeast Missouri, West-Central Illinois and Southeast Iowa falls below the federal benchmark for being poor. And, in some cases, the rates ranged from 13 percent to 18 percent, with one county coming in at 22 percent. “The numbers are disturbing, particularly because they’re going up,” Gordy said. “I think just about everyone knows someone who’s struggling to make ends meet. We want people who are in dire straits to know that there is help.” Included in Poverty Awareness Day will be a “rally walk,” in which participants from each



Auto Body

booth will take turns carrying a banner from the start of the event to its finish. Donations of food also will be accepted, with all of it going to area pantries. NECAC has held poverty awareness events at individual locations in the past, but this will be the first large-scale event. For more information about the event or the agencies involved, call Gordy at (573) 324-2207) or visit the NECAC Pike County Service Center at 805 Business Highway 61 North in Bowling Green.

Pastor Kenny Sharp

“Remember the Stones…Remember the Cross” was the topic of Pastor Kenny Sharp’s message. Scripture was read from Joshua 4: 1-9 and 2124. We are to 1)remember the story of the stones, 2) take the history of that story to the children of Israel and 3) understand God’s plan to bring us to where He wants us to be. THEN remember the bigger story of the cross 1)remember that because of the Cross we have been set free, 2) the history of the Cross is the act of salvation from bondage of sin, and 3)understand that all situations, good and bad, are part of God’s plan to lead us to what He wants of us. Tootsie Peak spoke to the children about when we stumble from God’s path and how we have to ask for forgiveness and confess to Him our sins. Children’s ministry was led by Ashley Kendrick. Prayers were requested for Keith Deaver, Jim Gooch, James A. Booth, Luke Olivas, Sara Watson, the Clint Fox family, family of the MO DOT worker from Kansas City, and Aaron Briscoe being deployed with Air Evac.

Mt. Airy Baptist Church

Pastor Robt. Cavanaugh

On Sunday, Sept. 16, church services began with the pastor giving an opening prayer. Regular church meetings of the week were announced and all were encouraged to attend. Announcements included the Sunday School Attendance Drive has started with high attendance day on Sunday, Oct. 28. Remember Wednesday, Oct. 10 is the deadline to be registered to vote in November and it is the Christians duty to vote God’s Word and will. This week’s message was titled “A Biblical View of Homosexuality” and came from Romans 1:17-32 with emphasis on 25-28. The world tries to make homosexuality a social issue but it is clearly a biblical issue. The Old Testament gives specific references to homosexuality four times and the New Testament five times. Supplement these teachings with biblical teachings on marriage and family, promiscuity, and sexual purity and the conclusion is that homosexuality is a biblical issue. A presentation of various worldly teachings were given and answered through biblical interpretation. The purpose of this sermon was to equip Christians with knowledge and biblical wisdom to be able to publically present God’s truth within a social setting with love, tolerance and truth.

Paris Full Gospel Fellowship

Pastor Terry Davison

Manifest Destiny: a term from days long gone by. It originated in 1845 in an editorial essay by John L. O’Sullivan to describe the burgeoning zeal with which Americans were settling the new land and establishing statehoods. It was an exciting time, and a dangerous time. People banded together, shared their bounty, and ignored their differences in favor of common goals. Their combined efforts resulted in the great nation we live in today. This zeal began in the hearts of men and women long before the eastern coast of America was settled: compelling people to leave the security of their homelands to strike out for a land of promise...not completely unlike the Promise Land given to Israel as they crossed the Red Sea: and the zeal with which they settled and established a nation. It was their manifest destiny to occupy and prosper in the land of promise... In the New Testament we have ordinance in Matthew 29:18, to “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” This zeal has been present in the hearts of Evangelical Christians since Jesus’ proclamation: and is responsible for the founding of churches in just about every city in the United States. But one must wonder if that zeal is as strong today as it once was: and if Christians today truly love their neighbors enough to bring the Gospel to them. I challenge us to reignite the zeal of Manifest Destiny that burned in the hearts of our forefathers: to reach out to people who are spiritually hungry, and present them with the Gospel of the Ages.

Pastor David Todd

The Perry Christian Church worship hour for Sunday, Sept. 23 opened with the choir singing “There’s Something About That Name”. Pastor Todd welcomed everyone and gave the Call to Worship. Remember the Saturday, Oct. 6 hayride at the Lewellen’s farm. The bible study is the Book of Isaiah. The fourth candle lit for children was done by Keeton with Joyce Coleman giving the meditation. Our hymn of praise was “In My Heart Rings A Melody”. Anthony and Zabette Elam were able to visit their seven month old grandson in Michigan and also Ellen Elam in Springfield last week. Both are doing fine. Missy Jaspering’s sister, Jessica Olsen has a new born, Righter Olsen. Shirley Levings reported the birth of her new great nephew, Werner Gordanier, in South Carolina. “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” is our prayer hymn. In prayer we remember Dorothy Diffenderfer and the new babies and their family. The choir’s response was “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”. Pastor gave the invitation to share the Lord’s Supper. “The Light of the World is Jesus” was sung. Communion prayers were given by Dean and Greg Harrison. Deacons were Carol Norman, Joe Ben Todd, David and Wyatt Lewellen. Alisha Eisele read the children a story of a selfish rainbow fish who was so much happier after sharing his beauty with the other fish. Mark 9:30-37 was read by Wyatt for the sermon, “Bringing Children Before God”. Children need to be comfortable asking questions about God’s Kingdom. As we share our faith with those around us, we also grow with blessings from God. “Pass It On” was the invitation hymn, followed by the benediction and singing “Tell Me the Story of Jesus”.

Five Ways to Prevent a House Fire By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

House fires are the number-one disaster threat to homeowners. Between 350,000 and 400,000 house fires occur each year in the United States. Unlike natural disasters such as tornadoes and floods, house fires are often preventable. Observe National Fire Prevention Week this year by taking these fire-prevention steps to help keep your home and your family safe. Avoid the sun. Flammable products such as paint thinner and lacquer can be ignited by heat sources around your home—even by sunlight streaming through a window. Always keep flammable products in a cool, dark place and in their original containers. Control candles. Keep lit candles away from materials that could easily catch fire, such as curtains. Never light candles when you’re feeling drowsy—accidentally falling asleep plays a role in 12 percent of all candle fires. Opt for battery-operated candles if you want a little bedtime glow. Enjoy your fireplace safely. The National Fire Protection Association recommends making sure your fireplace has a sturdy screen to prevent sparks from flying into the room. Also, allow fireplace and wood/pellet/coal stove ashes to cool before disposing in a metal container. Keep your stove company. Never leave the kitchen when you have food cooking on the stove. If you must leave the kitchen for any reason, remove the pan from the heat and turn the burner off. Care for your cords. Electrical cords can produce heat, so make sure they have room to “breathe.” Never trap them tightly between a piece of furniture and the wall or run them under a rug. Check the condition of cords regularly. Frayed wires or those damaged by pets are potential fire starters.

Republican Club votes to support four candidates The Monroe County Republican club held their monthly meeting and program on Monday, Sept. 10 at 1 p.m., at the Paris library in the Roegge room. The meeting opened with prayer and the pledge of allegiance to the American flag. The devotional was given by Ann Kuntz entitled “ The Wooden Bowl”. The bible verse read was taken from Philippians Chapter 4 verse 13. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Reports given by the secretary and treasurer were approved as read. Jane Wilsdorf gave a report

on candidates running for office in the upcoming election. It was decided to financially support four candidates. Ms. Wilsdorf reminded the group that a upcoming fundraiser for Jim Hansen, who is running for state representative, will be held at the home of Richard and Wanda Boggs. Three thank you notes were received and read by the club from the Freeman, Narvenson and O’Fallon families. The next meeting will be held on Monday, Oct. 8, at 1 p.m., at the Paris library in the Roegge room.

Starting in September, Don Clever will begin his duties as Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) conservation agent for Monroe County. He is among the 2012 graduating class of new agents and will join Monroe County Conservation Agent Alan Lamb. Originally from Pleasant Hill, Clever is an Eagle Scout and earned his FFA American degree. He graduated in 2011 from the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and Conservation Enforcement. He worked for MDC since March 2011 as a resource assistant for the Wildlife Division at James A. Reed Memorial Wildlife Area near Kansas City until being accepted into

the 2012 agent class in March. “As an avid sportsman, I feel there is much to offer in the northeast region of Missouri,” says Clever. “One of the things I plan to achieve is to share the resources of MDC with the youth of the community. I look forward to working with the citizens of Monroe County.” He adds, with fall hunting seasons approaching, it is a good time to register a new hunter for a hunter-education class.

Area SPORTS Slater Stone and Kole Berry lead Coyotes in tackles versus Westran

Monroe County Appeal, Paris, Mo. •

The Paris Coyotes ran into a buzz saw last Friday night when they traveled to state ranked Westran to take on the #8 ranked Hornets on their home turf. The Coyotes fell 61-0 in a game marked by big plays unfortunately for the visitors they were all on the green side of the football. A highlight for the Coyotes was the play of their special teams that held the Westran return game in check. Another big plus was the defensive tackle numbers as Slater Stone led the defensive charge with double digit takedowns for the contest with 11. Kole Berry also added double-digit tackles with 10. Lawrence Parrott added six tackles and Shawn Umstattd added five more tackles. Offensively the Coyotes just couldn’t get started against the speedy Westran Hornet defense. Steven Hayhurst completed a single pass to Laine Forrest and ran the ball nine times for a loss of 26 yards. Slater Stone was the only

runner in positive yardage rushing 10 times for 19 yards. Overall, Stone has gained 169 yards in five games while Hayhurst has rushed for a team high 238 yards. Receiving Stone leads the team with 153 yards. Defensively, Justin Wolfe has two fumble recoveries and Laine Forrest leads the team with two interceptions. Stone leads the team in tackles with 47 and Kole Berry is close behind with 40. “We played hard, but we were over powered by a superior team in every aspect of the game,” said Coach Gary Crusha. “We have to just have to put this game behind us and work hard to prepare for Fayette this week.” Statistics Passing: Steven Hayhurst 1 completion in 11 attempts for 2 yards. Receiving: Laine Forrest 1 reception for 2 yards. Rushing: Hayhurst 9 rushes for -26 yards; Slater Stone 10/19. Defensive Statistics Tackles: Shane Umstattd 5, Kyle

Popkes 3, Chance Wheelan 2, Steven Hayhurst 1, Laine Forest 3, Jon Turner 1, Trae Hammond 2, Austin Wilkerson 4 (1 for a loss), Shelby Powell 1, Slater Stone 11, Lawrence Powell 6, Corey Court 2, Brody Lehenbauer 3 (1 for a

loss), John DeOrnellis 2, Kole Berry 10, Alan Haynes 2, Seth Duncan 2, Zach Baker 2. The Coyotes host Fayette on Friday, Sept. 28 with kickoff at 7 p.m. Next Friday, Oct. 5 is Homecoming versus Slater.

MoDOT’s surplus items from the Northeast District will be auctioned on Saturday, September 29 beginning at 9 a.m., at the Hannibal District Complex located on US 61 South with a pre-auction viewing on Friday, Sept. 28, from 1-4 p.m. These auctions are a result of the department’s implementation of the Bolder Five-Year Direction, a plan of action that began in 2011 to address Missouri’s severe decline in transportation funding. “The department now operates with fewer employees and facilities, and we don’t need all the equipment and tools we had when we were a larger organization,” said MoDOT Roy Hogsett, general services manager for the Northeast District. “These auctions are part of our tiered approach to sell unneeded equipment and recoup an estimated $44 million from equipment reductions across the state,” he explained. MoDOT first redistributed some of its equipment to the remaining MoDOT buildings around the state. The department has also offered excess equipment to other state agencies and municipalities. The public auction is one of at least ten auctions around the state to sell the remaining supplies and equipment that MoDOT no longer needs. A list of available items and other auction details can be found at Auctions/20120929MoDOT/2012 0929MoDOT.html Arrangements are still being made for the additional public auctions around the state. To find out when and where those auctions will occur, check http://www. or “like” the Missouri Department of Transportation on Facebook.

Benefit Dinner Auction to be held for Jimmie English

A benefit dinner auction will be held for Lewis County resident, Jimmie English, on Oct. 6 at the Monroe City Knights of Columbus Hall, 405 S. Main, Monroe City, Mo. Jimmie is a 1979 Canton R-V graduate and is married to Staci, a teacher at Knox County. They reside in Williamstown. He has four children. He has been employed by JC Automotive Repair for over ten years and was previously employed at Ford Motor Company in Canton. Mr. English suffered an aortic dissection on Oct. 31, 2011. After go-

ing back to work in Jan. 2012, he began having more health problems that affected his eyes and speech and he suffered with leg pains. He was told it was normal to have these symptoms after surgery and they would eventually clear up, but they didn’t. He was referred to the Mayo clinic where he was diagnosed with a rare post surgical syndrome that mimics progressive supranuclear palsy or PSP. He is only the ninth person in the United States to be diagnosed with this syndrome, which there is no known cure. Experimental treatments have been un-

successful. He is no longer able to be employed. He is still receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic and is hopeful they can develop a way to stop the progression of the syndrome. The benefit on Oct. 6 is a way to help the English family. A variety of events are planned include a gun raffle, car show, food, home run derby, BBQ pork dinner, auction, softball tourney. An advertisement listing the events is in this edition. Donations for the family can be sent to Jimmie’s mother, Colleen Feldkamp, 511 Clark, Canton, MO 63435.
