Hickman’s IGA recognized as Paris Business of the Year

The weather could not have been more perfect for the 2012 Fall-In-To Paris. The Paris Area Chamber of Commerce in concert with numerous city merchants and individuals sponsored the Ninth Annual Fall-In-To Paris, on Saturday, Sept. 27, and the event was described by chamber members and visitors alike as a huge success. New this year was an Extreme 5K Run, which is basically a 5K run or walk combined with obstacles that included a mud pit, a slip-n-slide, hay bales, culvert crawl and other obstacles sprinkled on what racers described as a “tough, hilly course.” Race winners included: Men’s Division: 1st place, Kyle Land; 2nd place, Daniel Smothers; 3rd place, Eric Wilkerson. Women’s Division: 1st place, Cloe Billington; 2nd place, Stephanie Heater; 3rd place, DeDe Mitchell. The annual event featured a morning parade that was well attended as local residents and children lined the parade route greeting the parade entrants with all the children waiting in anticipation of the parade candy. The favorite area of the day without a doubt was the train and bounce house in concert with the talent show and entertainment. The entertainment drew an impressive crowd and featured Yes, Dear. Also, this year was another successful talent contest spearheaded by Chamber Board Member Glenn Turner. Winners of the talent contest, that inspired and awed a standing room only crowd were: 1st – Sherree DeClue; 2nd – Erik Daughterty; 3rd – Sara Hunt; and 4th – Frank Brown. Food vendors for Fall-In-To Paris served

a variety of scrumptious foods for everyone including beef, pork, brats, hot dogs, fried potatoes, soups, sandwiches, homemade pies, walking tacos, ice cream, cotton candy, popcorn, and drinks. The onsite vendors were numerous and well attended by the large crowd. There was indeed something for everyone. The Monroe County Democratic Committee held their annual successful Country Ham Breakfast, in the Senior Citizen’s Center. The Little Toot Express Train and Bounce House, sponsored by the chamber for four hours, which allowed area residents to use them for free, was a huge success and a youth magnet as witnessed by the long lines at the “train station.”. “The weather was marvelous this year,” said Fall-In-To-Paris organizer and Chamber Executive Director Vanessa Forrest. “This year’s crowd was wonderful.” Recognized as the 2012 Business of Year was Hickman’s IGA for their tireless dedication to the local business community, the local area and its residents. Receiving the award were members of Hickman’s IGA including Manager Roger Herron, Don Hickman, Kent Carman, Loretta Wade and Kevin Jones. “It is through the efforts of businesses such as Hickman’s IGA that help make our town successful,” said Paris Area Chamber of Commerce President David Eales. In other activities: Crowned Little Miss and Mr. Farmer, sponsored by the Farm Bureau Young Farmers, were Tucker Willard and Sylvee Graupman. All participants in the contest Continued to page 9

Resource Center named for Nancy E. Stone To a standing room attendance, on Wednesday, Sept. 26, the Monroe County Historical Society honored former president and the county’s premier historian Nancy E. Stone by naming the Monroe County Historical Society Research Room in her name. The room is located in the Paris City Hall building. New president Mary McCollum welcomed everyone to the ceremony. “It is nice to see so many people here today,” said McCollum. “Nancy would be honored at today’s turnout. This organization began 1967 and kind of drifted along, noted McCollum. It originally was more about history until Nancy brought genealogy along to the group with her membership.

McCollum quoted a Sy Colburn editorial, “In 1967 R. I. (Si) Colborn, then editor of the Monroe County Appeal wrote the following article in one of his editorials: “Here’s a Job For Some Energetic Researcher” “There is a growing need for an up-todate History of Monroe County, which would include all the early day history since the county was established in 1831, and that which has occurred since the last full history was published around 1880. It would take a huge amount of work, reading and research, especially in the copies of the newspapers of the county and the records of the state historical society and other record keeping offices.

More Tax Cuts For The Wealthy? Why?

As we approach the first debate between President Obama and Governor Romney, which will focus on economic issues, we will no doubt hear the claim that cutting taxes creates economic growth. As some fill for his claim that “he knows how to create jobs” Mr. Romney will try to make a case for further tax cuts primarily for wealthy Americans and large corporations. The theory behind this, which is not at all new, is that cutting taxes on the wealthy will result in their having more money to invest and be an incentive to do so. This would result in a large economy and tax base so the government would reap more income than if there were no tax cuts. This is also known as the “trickle-down theory of economics.” In today’s modern economy many big time investors and corporations may, and many do, decide to invest their tax savings in foreign markets or in financial products that don’t create any American jobs. Many investors grow very rich without investing in businesses that have or create new jobs. The fact that American companies are sitting today on 2 trillion dollars in cash cannot be explained by their concerns about regulations or market uncertainty about health care issues. The history of taxes is a clear downward trend. From the rates in the fifties at 90 percent marginal rates to today’s 35 percent and capital gains tax in the fifties at 25 percent to 15 percent now there has been no corresponding rate of economic growth during those years. The GDP (gross domestic product) was 4.2 percent in the fifties and in the 2000’s has averaged 1.7 percent growth rates in comparison. What a steady reduction in taxes for those paying the most in taxes has accomplished is to create more income inequality. The share of income for the top 0.1 percent of Americans has gone from 4.2 percent in 1945 to 12.3 percent in 2006-07 and is now 9.2 percent. Mr. Romney has not yet favored us with which tax loopholes he will close nor will he tell us which governmental programs or services he plans to cut or eliminate. Without a plan to offset further tax cuts and no proof that they provide jobs or stimulate the economic growth of the country, it may well be time for what’s left of the middle class and the working poor to resist being trickled on any further.


Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, I wish to encourage everyone to take a few minutes, and that is all it takes, to help your school. Now is when we can vote for our school to win a part of the ONE MILLION Dollars. Money that U.S. Cellular is giving away. This year is much easier than last year, this year you pick up one card for each email address you have and vote. You only vote one time per email and then throw the card away. You don’t have to vote every day. If you have a face book account it has a separate email address you can vote. We really can win. 17 schools will and a lot of them are small school that the community gets behind. It could be us!!! If you wish education had more resources this is the ticket and it will only cost you a small bit of time one time. Come on let’s get this one done!!! And just a note, when they ask you for your password you can enter any 6 digits, not your real password. Example: 123456 or abcdefg. Stop by any U.S. Cellular office and pick up cards to vote. It Is EASY!!!! One more very important note. The Paris Schools have agreed to have everyone vote for the Paris Elementary School so be sure to post your vote to that school. I also hope that you realize how very important it is to vote in this upcoming election. So make both of these votes priorities. Make a difference!!!! Thanks, Donna Turner Paris Dear Editor, I write this as awareness about the Farm Bill. The 2008 Farm Bill brought with it the greatest Farm and Rural Economy this country has every seen while our city and urban friends did not fare so well. The Farm Bill did what it was supposed to do, bring prices in line and cost government less. At the end there was $ 80 Billion left in the budget.(Good Job) Under the Paul Ryan budget in the beginning there was not going to be a farm bill, that changed. The Paul Ryan budget then added a Farm Bill, in the bill there were no provision for conservation 0. that means funding for Quail, Duck, Turkey gone and you might as well park those bulldozers and scrapers because there won’t be funding for ponds, waterways etc. If that isn’t bad enough the House failed to act on the Farm Bill, they did not even extend it. NOW this is what happens with out a Farm Bill. Under President Harry Truman the 1947 Farm Act was passed, in this the provision called parity was inserted to give farmers a chance to make a living on the farm. However this country soon decided it wanted cheap food. So came the Farm Bill and if it runs out or ends without extension as commodities cycle the 47 Farm Act kicks in with parity. Parity Price for Milk $38.00 per gallon Parity Price for Corn $17.00 per bushel Parity Price for Wheat over $20.00 per bushel These prices could easily raise a grocery bill from $100.00 to $500.00 I see why my parents had a garden and a milk cow. Just some food for thought my Aunt Willa May Roberts was an Agriculture advisor to President Truman.

90 Years Ago Sept. 29, 1922

For the first time since the middle of July a passenger train passed over the M. K. T. line through Monroe County, Tuesday morning. It could hardly be called a train, though, as it was composed of only the engine, baggage car, and one passenger coach. One passenger train each way a day is now being run, the morning train going to New Franklin, due at Paris at 8:35, and the evening train to Hannibal due in Paris at 6:50. Friday will be “Tag Day” in the Junior and Senior high schools. This is a membership campaign for the Athletic Association. A membership costs fifty cents and entitles each person to attend all basket ball games in Paris this fall, free. You will never see a better picture than “Midsummer Madness” which will be shown at the Opera House Friday and Saturday. Miss Nelle Lamme and pupils will give a community pie supper and social at Washington schoolhouse Friday night, Oct. 6 At a meeting recently of Madison businessmen, it was decided that a street fair would not be held this year. Rev. R. H. Moorman and his Knights of King Arthur’s Court boys spent Saturday in the woods west of Paris. They brought home quite a lot of hickory nuts.

Before the next month ends every Monroe County family will get a cream-colored document from Washington, carrying a personal message from the president of the United States. Mr. Roosevelt is undertaking to locate every person who is in need of employment. He is not depending on agencies to secure desired information.

Civil service examinations will be given at the Paris post office, Friday Oct. 22, for two positions for men only. One is to serve as as fireman and laborer at the new Government building in Paris at a salary of $1260 a year. The other is for the job of chairman at the same building at 50 cents an hour, the only qualification for which is physical ability. Unless Japan and Italy back down, a world war may be raging before this time next week. Early Darnell, member of the grocery firm of Burnett and Darnell, has bought Harry Burnett’s part of the business, and took possession Monday morning. Burnett retains the express business, run at the grocery store location.

Just a Thought

by Lisa Talton

Oh No!!! Not Again!!! (Part 2)

So here we are-me, my son, my husband and the mouse. My son goes into the family room with my husband and gets his weapon (the broom). I stay in the kitchen and get my chair. My son goes over to the corner where my husband thinks the mouse is hiding and I get on top of my chair so I can get a good view to help them keep track of the little guy. Okay...Okay....maybe I was on the chair because I felt safer but I did have a good view from there. I was amazed at how fast my son got down to business. He was moving here and there following his daddy’s instructions. Don’t tell my husband I told you but I think there were a couple times in there where that mouse moved so quick that it took him off guard but not our son. Nothing seemed to phase him or scare him—now me on the other hand—that is a different story. At one point the mouse was cornered behind a chair so we waited and waited. We stared and stared and stared at that chair waiting for something to happen. Then all of the sudden that little mouse’s head peaked up over the chair. I said out loud, “Wait a minute, wait a minute.... did that mouse just climb up the back of that chair and peep over the top to look at us?” No one was answering me. They were too busy trying to keep track of the fella—but of course I was more concerned at how it climbed up that chair. Then that stinker did it again like he was answering me saying......uh huh that’s right I climbed up the chair and I just did it again.... Then I started feeling really silly standing up on top of that chair like I was safe when that mouse just proved to me that height was not an issue for him. If he wanted to get up there he was going to. Even after this revelation I still decided to stay on the chair–I don’t know why

but I did. After the mouse played peek-a-boo with us my husband decided he better put up a barricade between the family room and the kitchen so the little guy wouldn’t try and get into the other parts of the house. My husband, with my help, moved the kitchen table on to it’s side to act as a barrier. (See I was somewhat useful after all.) So now they have the mouse trapped behind the bookshelf-the same bookshelf where the last mouse found it’s demise. But this mouse was different. This mouse wasn’t going to give up as easy. This mouse jumped. This mouse climbed. This mouse moved from here to there in the blink of an eye. This mouse was smart. I think this mouse was part ninja. My son started tapping the side of the bookshelf to try and get it to come out. Then they moved it a little to see if it was behind there. I am peeking my head around the corner to try and see behind the bookshelf when the mouse scales the back of the bookshelf up to the top and then flies in mid air like the matrix. I whipped my head back so fast that you might have thought I got whip lash. Everything was happening so fast...I was absolutely shocked that mouse could do such a thing but before I could even finish my thought I see the mouse heading straight for my husband and then all of the sudden a mop goes up in the air and whack----the ninja mouse is lying flat on the floor. My husband was standing in the family room with a broken mop in his hand and a dead mouse on the floor. I kept looking at it and asking, “Are you sure it’s dead?” This is the same mouse that scaled the book shelf and practically flew through the air and he is going to let one whack of the mop take him out? I guess he was because that mouse did not move again–well at least not until my husband scooped it up and took it outside. Once again Talton and Son took care of the mouse!!!!

Madison C-3 FFA Activity Updates

National Officer Visit On Friday, Sept. 14, the Madison FFA chapter was privileged to host the National FFA Secretary Jason Troendle from Minnesota. 42 students were able to listen to him speak and participate in his eventful activities. Students were challenged to think about their individual personalities and what makes them different, develop personal goals, and work together as teams to complete different tasks. State Fair Madison FFA members attended and exhibited at the Missouri State Fair in mid-August. Students who participated had projects ranging from Beef Cattle to talking demonstrations and even indoor exhibits such as beets, cucumbers, watermelons, and several other fruits and vegetables. Members participating were Nick Bird, Liz Boillot, Sammi Painter, David Arnold, Angela Purdy, Sam LeGrand, and Allie Dunkin.

Walk To School Month

October is Walk to School Month and beginning on Wednesday, students at more than 30 schools across the state will be participating in Walk to School Day, an effort to get children to exercise more and by making strides to help the environment. The Missouri Department of Transportation encourages parents and communities to help children establish good walking or cycling habits. Program Coordinator, Jeff Cremer says, it has become a popular annual event for students. “We encourage children, and parents and community leaders to get out and not just drive to school, or ride the school bus to school, but to get out and plan routes that are safe and walk to school to get some exercise,” he says. Cremer also says it’s a great way to help the environment by reducing traffic and gas emissions from cars: “So anytime we’ve had a larger group of students particularly within that one mile radius of the school who can walk instead of riding in an individual car- a lot of school busses don’t operate inside that one mile radius, we can really measurably reduce the amount of traffic near that school and the congestion which reduces the amount of air pollutants that go into the air.” He says less air pollutants could help reduce the risk of asthma and other airborne pollutant diseases in children.

The Monroe County Historical Society has recently published a directory book and photo CD for historic Stoutsville Cemetery and nearby St. Andrew Cemetery in Monroe County, Missouri. The tall obelisk that marks the graves of Judge Henry Dooley and his wife Nancy towers over most of the other stones in Stoutsville Cemetery. Judge Dooley and his wife deeded the initial parcel of land in 1882 for the establishment of a public burying ground at Stoutsville, Missouri. Various additions of land over the years make up what we now know as Stoutsville Cemetery. Although official records show the cemetery was established in 1882, existing headstones show several earlier burials in the 1860s and 1870s. More than 1000 burials as of 2012 are recorded in the new directory book which supersedes and corrects all earlier transcriptions of the cemetery. St. Andrew Cemetery was established in 1916, thirteen years after St. Andrew Catholic Church was built in nearby Stoutsville, Missouri. The new directory book records 104 burials in St. Andrew Cemetery from when it was established to the present time. Both cemeteries are still in use and have active cemetery associations. Maps showing burial locations in each cemetery were created as part of the project and are included in both the book and CD. All surviving headstones in both cemeteries were photographed in row order in March 2012 and then compared to previous transcriptions, death certificates, obituaries and other records available to the Historical Society. The Monroe County Historical Society also has copies available of the recently published Volumes 1 and 2 of Nancy Stone?s Monroe County History columns from the Lake Gazette during the period 2006-2011. Each volume is approximately 130 pages in length

and contains about 60 of her best columns and are available at the Monroe County Historical Research Center in Paris for $20 each. Cost of the Stoutsville/St. Andrew Directory and CD is $35 for the set or $20 each. Members of the Monroe County Historical Society receive a discount. Please include $4.00 for postage if mailed. Contact the Monroe County Historical Research Center, 112 S. Main, P. O. Box 131, Paris MO 65275 or phone 660-327-1831 for more information. This is the fourth volume in a series of updated cemetery transcriptions with a companion photo CD published by MCHS. Each booklet includes an alphabetical list of known burials with birth and death dates, plus a section and row chart that gives the name of a spouse and/or parents as determined primarily from headstone engravings, death records and obituaries. The companion CD includes photos of all headstones in alphabetical order. Pleasant Hill Cemetery was published in 2009 and has been updated recently. In 2010 a second set which includes Bryan, Cedar Grove, Long Branch and New Hope cemeteries was released followed by a third set in 2011 for Bethel Cemetery in Holliday, Missouri. Booklets and CDÂ?s are still available for each of these earlier sets. The Monroe County Historical Society is a non-profit 501(C)3 corporation founded in 1967 to preserve the history of Monroe County. All profits from the sale of these booklets support that mission.

Mark Twain Lake has shooting target with safety message The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake recently received a grant from the Quincy Area Safety Council to produce a target for those looking to hone their shooting skills. What makes the target unique is that it incorporates shooting safety with the ever important water safety message encouraging people to wear their life jacket when on or around water, a message the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers works endlessly to promote. While this may seem like a message intended exclusively for fisherman, skiers and typical water recreation users, hunters are often utilizing areas around water for their sport as well. Many of the deer hunters that come to Mark Twain Lake each fall travel by boat to get to their favorite hunting spot. Reminding them to wear their life jacket during their time on the water is just as critical. Now, when hunters are sighting in their rifle weeks ahead of opening day at ranges such as the David C. Berti Shooting Range located in the Warren G. See Spillway on Mark Twain Lake, they can utilize a colorful target that will remind them of the water safety message as well. Thanks to the Quincy Areas

Safety Council, the “You Always Hit the Mark When You Wear Your Life Jacket” campaign will kick off immediately, just in time to make sure everyone is ready for deer season. The Corps of Engineers is offering these targets to visitors at no charge. They can be picked up at the M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center on Mark Twain Lake from now until Sunday, Nov. 4. The Quincy Areas Safety Council of Quincy, Ill., is dedicated to safety and promoting safety in all aspects of life including home, work, and community. The Council participates with many outside safety-related organizations with donations of The David C. Berti Shooting Range at Mark Twain Lake is open on a year round basis. There is a small day use fee required for daily usage. This can be deposited in the self pay station, which is located at the front of the range. The M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center is located just south of the Clarence Cannon Dam on Rt. J. The Visitor Center is open daily from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. If you need additional information, please contact the Mark Twain Lake Project Office at 573-735-4097 or email us at

The United Way of the Mark Twain Area launched the 17th Annual Day of Caring with free breakfast and T-shirts at Hannibal LaGrange University this Thursday. Nearly one hundred volunteers participated in the event designed to give campaign supporters the opportunity to do volunteer projects in United Way supported programs and actually see how their donations are put to work. Not only do they (the volunteers) get time off from work to do this but they also get to see how hard the programs work to stretch the dollars and serve more people. “Today exemplifies our campaign theme and logo, People Helping People… the United Way”, noted Campaign Chairman Ryan Rapp (US Bank) “Hopefully these volunteers will take what they saw and share it with co-workers giving others the incentive to support the campaign and increase the volunteer effort. It’s a win-win and we certainly appreciate the cooperation of employers as well as those who volunteer.” Projects included building shelves, packing buddy packs for school children, painting community rooms, yard work, landscaping, organizing

emergency preparedness supplies, and much more. Additionally, volunteers worked with the Foster Grandparent Program implementing the healthy living program “100 Hungry Ants” to Head Start children and area 2nd grade classes this week and next. On Friday, Sept. 28 the YMCA will host a Family Carnival Night with the help of General Mills second shift volunteers. Those businesses participating in this years events include General Mills, Northeast Missouri Power Cooperative, HNB Banks, US Bank employees, Park United Methodist Mission Committee, Marion County Health Dept. Ralls County Health Department, many more. The Day of Caring heightens awareness of the United Way of the Mark Twain Area and the annual drive that this year will raise $565,000 for human service programs in Marion, Ralls, Monroe, Shelby and Lewis County. The slogan “People Helping People…the United Way” was chosen through an area wide contest. For information on making a donation and upcoming volunteer opportunities you are urged to contact the United Way at 573-221-2761 or visit our webpage at

The food packs consist of 3 cans vegetables, 3 cans fruit, 1 can pasta sauce, 1 lb. pasta, 3 cans tuna, 1 can Spam, 1 jar peanut butter and 3 packages of macaroni and cheese. These should be placed in a sturdy box. We are also taking paper kits consisting of 3 packages of 4 double rolls of toilet paper; 2 rolls good quality paper towels; and 2 large boxes of tissue. These should be placed in a tall kitchen garbage bag. We are also thinking about a youth work camp mission trip next summer. Worship this Sunday will center around World Communion Sunday. We are still seeking names of soldiers in the combat zone in order to send a care package. Please forward names to Brenda Coffman. Find a sense of peace in our informal worship service. We worship together on the first, third and fifth Sundays of the month at 11 a.m. (Upcoming dates: Oct. 7 and 21). Sunday School for all ages is held every Sunday at 10 a.m.

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Love binds us together in perfect unity.”

Mt. Airy Baptist Church

Pastor Robt. Cavanaugh

On Sunday, Sept. 30, 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. Saturday, Oct. 13 is Men’s Breakfast at 8:30 a.m., and a wiener roast and hay ride is planned for Saturday, Oct. 27, at 5:30 p.m. Peggy Evans joined the membership of the church today. This week’s message was titled “God’s High View of Life” and came from Genesis 1:26-28 and Genesis 2:7. God created mankind differently that the rest of creation. God created man in His image. Mankind has attributes of God that the other parts of creation do not have. God blew the breath of life into mankind giving him a special connection with God that no other part of creation shares. In Genesis 2:7 God did not speak man into being but formed him personally. These things show the high view God puts on the life of mankind. America should have this high view of life also but can never achieve the view until abortion is stopped in America. We ask God to bless our nation but how can He when we willingly destroy His creation.

Paris Full Gospel Fellowship

Pastor Terry Davison

Most of us likely have our own personal definitions for the words “confidence” and “arrogance”. Some would contend that arrogance is an extreme case of confidence, but there is another reality: with that of arrogance representing the absence of confidence. Arrogant, haughty and proud people seldom attempt to serve anyone beyond themselves. Thus as it says in Scripture, in Proverbs 21: 24, “A proud and haughty man— “Scoffer” is his name; He acts with arrogant pride.” This kind of attitude is counterproductive and does not represent the sort of person that can be well used of God. Arrogance is typically found in people who have little self esteem, as they attempt to disguise same with boastful verbiage: not wanting people to know the real person behind the boast. We are instructed through Scripture to have our confidence in Christ: as the Apostle Paul says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Psalm 27:3 teaches, “Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.” Our confidence should be in who we are, and in whose we are: putting on the strength of Christ rather than our own.

Fire Prevention Week focuses on creating home escape routes With Fire Prevention Week 2012 scheduled for Oct. 7-13, State Fire Marshal Randy Cole urges Missourians to remember the importance of having at least two escape routes for your family to safely exit your home in case of an emergency. “It is important that families plan and prepare for the unpredictably and dangers associated with fires,” State Fire Marshal Cole said. “Fires can spread rapidly, blocking planned escape routes. This makes it essential to have at least two quick escapes routes planned in advance from different rooms throughout your home. Having an alternate route in case another route becomes blocked can save lives.” Fire Prevention Week is recognized annually by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and fire departments and safety agencies across the country. This year’s campaign, “Have 2 Ways Out,” encourages everyone to plan multiple fire escape routes for their families. According to NFPA, in 2010 there were an estimated 369,500 reported home structure fires across the U.S., resulting in 2,640 civilian deaths. An NFPA survey also revealed that only 23 percent of American households have actually developed and practiced a fire evacuation plan. Fire Marshal Cole suggests developing a home escape plan as soon as a family moves into a new residence; regularly practicing the plan and explaining it to children; and revising the plan as the children grow up. Cole adds that having a working smoke detector is essential to en-

suring your family is alerted in case of a fire. “Working smoke detectors increase your chance of survival by 50 percent, and are something every household should have.” For more than 85 years, fire departments have observed Fire

Prevention Week, making it the longest running public health and safety observance on record. For more information on “Have 2 Ways Out,” visit

Perry Christian Academy staff and students gather at the pole.


Perry Christian Academy staff, students gather “At the Pole” Perry Christian Academy staff and students joined millions of others on Wednesday, Sept. 26 to acknowledge the See You at the Pole rally. The event was held to lift up friends, families, teachers, schools, and the nation to God. This event began in 1990 in Burleson, Texas, after a small group of teenagers attended a discipleship weekend class and when it was over they felt compelled to pray for several local schools. These teens gathered around the flag poles at each school and prayed. Word soon spread and other youth began the annual practice. This year, the theme was “Awaken” and the Scripture was based on Ephesians 3:14-21. Nathan Welch, PCA eighth grade student, read the scripture verses, the students sang “I Will Call Upon the Lord”, and many students prayed. PCA is blessed to be able

to teach our students the Christian heritage of our country and have

Bible classes, chapel services and teacher led prayer.

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.

2012 Annual Halloween Monroe County Circuit Court News Walk at lake Oct. 19, 20

Monroe County Land Transfers

It’s that time of year again when the Indian Creek Campground at Mark Twain Lake is invaded by a full cast of creepy characters! The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is proud to announce the return of the Annual Halloween Walk. On both Friday, Oct. 19 and Saturday, Oct. 20, everyone is invited to check out this year’s best decorated campsites. This is a great chance for the little ones to “sharpen their trick-or-treating skills” or for the older ones to come see what all the excitement is about. The event is free and everyone is invited to come in costume. Don’t forget your flashlight! There is one minor change the Corps would like visitors to be aware of for the 2012 event. In an effort to help reduce congestion on Saturday the 20th of the event, the Fox and Eagle Point loops will be closed to drive through traffic

starting at 4:30 until 9 p.m. This will also provide the younger trickor-treaters a chance to come out in the daylight in somewhat less scary conditions. The loops will be closed to traffic at the same times as in previous years for Friday the 19th of the event, 6-9 p.m., to accommodate those trying to set up on Friday before the event. The Indian Creek Campground is located south of Monroe City. Take Highway 24 south out of Monroe City and take a left onto State Road HH. Follow the signs to spooky fun! All reservable campsites have been reserved but non-reservable sites will be available on a firstcome-first-serve basis in person only. If you need additional information about the event, please contact the Mark Twain Lake Project Office at 573-735-4097 or email us at

Historical Society... Continued from front Right now, those who want to write on the history of the county up to the present time have to rely largely on tedious searching through newspapers that have been printed since 1830. To do the job it would take someone who can sift fact from fiction, someone who can write interestingly, someone who has plenty of spare time, someone who will place the job above money. With the high cost of printing today, it is doubtful if such a venture could ever be made profitable. But the need remains.” It took nearly forty years, but this need was finally met in the person of Nancy Stone!” said McCollum. “Mr. Colborn’s article describes her abilities exactly, but failed to include her brilliant mind, incredible memory, seemingly endless energy, and her sincere deep interest in Monroe County, its people

Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012


and its history.” “The Monroe County Historical Society was formed in 1967 but it took Nancy’s leadership to create the resource center and give the Society a true home,” said McCollum. Ken McGee gave a short presentation on his time spent with Nancy and her love of history. “Peace to your ashes and may the soil of Monroe County rest lightly on your bones,” said McGee in closing. “It is a great pleasure to dedicate this room to Nancy,” said McCollum. McCollum noted that the Monroe County Historical Society annual dinner would be on Monday, Oct. 22, at the Senior Center. She also explained that two books of Nancy Stone’s writings for The Lake Gazette were now on sale.

The chamber sponsored this year’s chili contest, which was held outdoors, and located on the west side of the courthouse.

It was a close contest as usual with the difference between second and third place by a total of one vote and the overall vote total being over a hundred participants. “We had a tremendous turnout for this year’s event and we look forward to next year,” said Chamber President David Eales. “Thank you to each and every member of

Area SPORTS Stone and Hayhurst each rush for over 120 yards in 33-16 win over Fayette

Monroe County Appeal, Paris, Mo. •

Defense shines in second half shutting down Fayette

The Paris Coyotes (2-4) let Fayette hang around for the first half and build a small 16-13 lead at the half before Coach Crusha‘s halftime talk fired up the Coyotes who roared out of the locker room and put 20 unanswered points on the scoreboard to defeat the Hornets 33-16. The Coyotes offensive line came alive as they manhandled the Hornets in the second half. The line allowed Coyote runners including Slater Stone 121, Steven Hayhurst 126 and Justin Wolfe 59 yards of real estate (306 yards) and five rushing touchdowns. Wolfe and Stone each scored two rushing touchdowns while Hayhurst added a running touchdown and added three extra points. Paris scored the first 13 points to lead 13-0 before Fayette rallied for two touchdowns and led 16-13 at the half. The second half was all Coyotes as they pushed Fayette all over the field to score three second half TD’s and the Coyote defense held Fayette scoreless. The Coyotes had a season high 17 first downs for the contest behind the rushing of Hayhurst, Stone and Wolfe and the receiving of Laine Forrest (an important 30 yard grab that led to the first touchdown) and Stone 63 yards including two catches 30, 33 yards) that allowed the Coyotes to keep drives alive and led to scores. Defensively, Laine Forrest and Chance Wheelan had interceptions, with Forrest pulling down

his team leading third pick, and Stone recovered a fumble for the Coyotes defensive effort. Also Zac Baladenski, Wolfe and Stone each had double digit tackles for as team that dragged down 76 Hornets in the contest. Baladenski (3), Stone and Wolfe (2 apiece) each had tackles for losses. “This was the best game we have played all year,” said Coach Crusha. “We played hard for four quarters, and our line was able to open up holes allowing Hayhurst and Stone to get into the open. We made some adjustments at half that really paid off for us on defensive.

I’m really proud of how our guys bounced back this week. We have to work hard this week to take on a much improved Slater team.” The Coyotes host Slater for Homecoming Friday night, Oct. 5, with kickoff set for 7 p.m., and coronation at halftime. Statistics Scoring: Touchdowns: Steven Hayhurst 1, Salter Stone 2, Justin Wolfe 2. Passing: Hayhurst 3 completions in 7 attempts for 93 yards.

Sanders has walk off single vs. South Shelby The Madison Lady Panthers are on a roll as they recently dispatched Fayette 7-1, Marion County 13-3 and South Shelby in a thriller 5-4 heading into district play. South Shelby A walk off single by Krystal Sanders gave Madison a 5-4 win over South Shelby. The first four innings were a pitchers duel as both South Shelby and Madison could not get a run over the plate through four innings. Both teams broke through in the fifth with South Shelby plating a single run and Madison added a four spot. Niki Sims singled and Breanna Hancock walked. Jessica Stoebe singled in Sims while Samantha LeGrand reached on a fielder’s choice. Angela Purdy tripled two runs, Jami Westfaul walked and Krystal Sanders drove in a run with a fielder’s choice and Madison led 4-1. South Shelby scored three runs in the sixth to knot the score at four. With Madison unable to score the game entered the seventh inning tied. South Shelby had runners at second and third but the Madison defense stepped up and Purdy and the defense stranded the runners when Purdy hit Sims with a bullet to punch put a Lady Cardinal at third base to end the inning. In the Madison seventh with the game on the line – Jessica Stoebe opened the inning with a double. Samantha LeGrand moved her to second with some nifty hitting to the right side of the infield. After a pop out Krystal Sanders stepped to the plate and stroked a single to the

grass to score Stoebe and walk off with a win 5-4. Marion County After surrendering two early runs Angela Purdy shut down the Marion County batters while the Lady Panther offense exploded to send the players home early in a run shortened affair 13-3. Scoring runs were Jessica Stoebe (3 including two home runs), Samantha LeGrand 2, Angela Purdy, Krystal Sanders, Jami Westfaul 2, Allie Dunkin, Breanna Hancock, Hannah Grimsley and Niki Sims.

Carol Boone Yager, 75, of Centralia died peacefully Tuesday evening, Sept. 25, at her home with her family at her bedside. Her death was the result of complications from progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). She was born Nov. 23, 1936, in Paris to Carl Moss and Susie Boone Bryan-Bounds, both of whom preceded her in death. She had one brother, Carlyle, who also preceded her in death. She married Carl Wayne Yager on Sept. 4, 1955, in Paris, and he survives her at the home. The Yagers had their 57th wedding anniversary recently. Carol also is survived by three daughters and their husbands, Suzanna Boone Wolf and Phillip Wolff of O’Fallon, Leeanna Irene Delaney and Dan Delaney of Palmyra, and Dianna Carlene Eiken and Donald Eiken of Strafford; sister-in-law Betty Jo Sanders, Temple, Texas, and brothers-inlaw Donald Elmer Yager of Austin, Texas, and Kenneth Eugene Yager of St. Joseph.

she worked at the Paris Savings Bank until 1959, when she moved to Columbia with her husband. From 1959, she was a full-time wife, mother and homemaker. She was a member of First Baptist Church in Centralia. In addition to being a loving and devoted wife and mother, she was an accomplished organist and pianist. She began playing the organ at the First Baptist Church in Paris at the age of 12 in 1948. She played the organ and piano at the First Baptist Church in Centralia from 1962 to 2009. She also was the pianist for the Centralia Rotary Club for several years. She provided the organ music for numerous weddings and funerals through the years. She was a charter member of PEO Chapter KZ in Centralia and also served that organization as an officer. She assisted with several Centralia Historical Society quilt shows, served as a “gray lady” at the University of Missouri Medical Center in Columbia and was an Honorary Member of the Centralia Rotary Club and a Paul Harris Fellow. Carol will be remembered as a kind, soft-spoken lady who did everything she undertook with a desire for excellence. She will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her. A memorial service was held at 11 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 29, at the First Baptist Church in Centralia with Dr. Larry Lewis officiating. Friends greeted the family from 9 a.m. until the time of service. Interment was at the Walnut Grove Cemetery, in Paris.

Calling All Communities! Vote Today As U.S. Cellular’s Calling All Communities campaign continues, the carrier revealed the Top 100 schools leading the pack and what those new votes mean for participating schools. To date 15,728 total votes have been cast so far with nearly 13,500 just this week in the race to win a share of $1 million in the company’s fourth annual campaign to support education. “It’s great to see so many local schools already rallying support, but it’s still early and rankings can change quickly,” said Nathan Waddell, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Missouri. “With four weeks left, there’s plenty of time for communities to pull together to help their local schools make it to the top. We’re committed to enhancing the learning experience for students, and hope you vote for your favorite school.” The top 18 schools that receive the most votes will win a share of $1 million to spend any way they see fit. The school that garners the most votes will receive $150,000,

and the next 17 schools will each receive $50,000. The voting period ends Oct. 21. As of Sept. 25, the Top 100 schools lead a total of 646 schools throughout the country that have received votes. With three new schools in the Top 20 and 32 new schools in the Top 100 this week, many continue to gain momentum. There has been drastic movement from Columbus Unified High School from Columbus, Kan., who went from 99th place to 31st in just one week. Hugo Middle School from Hugo, Okla., made an impressive jump from 53rd place to 25th this week. Less than 70 votes separate the schools ranked between 20th and 30th. There is plenty of time for communities to rally and vote for their local schools and the standings can change quickly. Eight schools from Missouri are in the Top 100, including Paris R-II Elementary School. The full Top 100 school list for this week can be seen at
