NECAC announces winter utility application dates The not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation will take applications for winter utility assistance from qualifying families and individuals starting Nov. 1. Applications for senior citizens and the disabled started Oct. 1, and will continue. NECAC is a 12-county area notfor-profit social service, community health and public housing Community Action Agency. NECAC contracts with federal, state and local governments, private businesses and other not-for profit organizations to operate and administer self-sufficiency service programs for the lowincome, elderly, youth, disabled and disadvantaged population. The agency’s Central Administration Offices are located in Bowling Green, with NECAC Service Centers operated in each county. Eligibility for energy assistance is based upon income, the number of people per household and the type of heating source. This program is funded 100 percent with federal funds received from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

(HHS) provided by the Missouri Department of Social Services, Family Support Division, which then contracts and monitors the local administration of the program to non-profit groups such as NECAC. All 19 Missouri Community Action Agencies are contracted to administer the program throughout the state. The program pays part of the utility bills of income-qualifying people. Applications will be accepted by mail and in person from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at NECAC Service Centers in each county. “We know that there’s a lot of need out there, especially at this time of the year,” said Linda Fritz, NECAC emergency services supervisor. “We urge people to take advantage of the assistance offered by this program.” People who receive a utility shut-off notice also may qualify for assistance through the Energy Crisis Intervention Program (ECIP). Each energy assistance qualifying household can get up to $800 to pay overdue utility bills through ECIP. For more information, call or Continued to page 9

“United We Pray” event draws large crowd and seven pastors The United We Pray Event was held on Thursday, Oct. 25, in the City Auditorium. Reverend Bob Cavanaugh, from Mt. Airy Baptist Church, opened the evening with a greeting and related the theme of the evening 2 Chronicles 7; 14 to the approximate 100 people in attendance, some as far away as Kingdom City. He asked for those in attendance to stand for the singing of “How Great Thou Art,” led by Hazel Kinder, of Hazel Kinder’s Lighthouse Theatre. The opening prayer of the evening was presented by Ronnie Fields of St. Frances Cabrini Church. Following the prayer Lloyd Miller from the Paris American Legion led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance following which the Star Spangled Banner was performed by Billie Jo Hatton. Miller then returned to the podium to give a brief history of the Star Spangled Banner which was written by Frances Scott Key during the War of 1812. He then read the 4th verse, not known by most people. Rev. Kenny Sharp, of Santa Fe Christian Church, was next and proceeded to talk about the first section of 2 Chronicles 7:14 which reads “If my People called by God’s Name.” He told the group we need to pray that God will guide our leaders, our teach-

C-3 Students celebrate 2012 Red Ribbon Week

Madison C-3 School celebrated Red Ribbon Week October 2226th! The theme this year was “Be A Superhero Have the Power to Say No To Drugs!” On Monday, they had a High School Assembly, attending were Monroe County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Corporal Sue Walker and Kurtis Little. Deputy Walker attended to discuss the importance of making right choices and to just say NO to drugs and alcohol.

ers, and our law enforcement He stated that prayer needs to start with us because we love God! We need to change ourselves so we can show love to the nation. Reverend David Charlick, of Paris, then spoke on the section of the verse that reads” Humble themselves, pray and seek my face.” He stated that we have to admit we all need God’s help. He told the story of Moses on Mt. Sinai. Billie Jo Hatton performed the song “ Pray”, leaving many wet eyes in the audience during those moments. Rev. Wesley Hammond, from the Paris Baptist Church reflected on the meaning of the next part of the scripture, “turn from their wicked ways”. The reverend made it apparent that it is our

duty as individuals to turn from our own wicked ways before we can ask for God’s help. He related the story given to the children of Israel when they dedicated King Solomon’s temple in Israel. For the Glory of God to fill the temple the Lord’s people need to turn from wickedness. The Lord promised that if the Glory of God left the temple he would give his people a chance to respond and turn from their wicked ways. Two hundred years later the glory left the temple and 100 years of wrath followed which was carried out by armies against the Lord’s people. He reflected that America has received the blessing of the Lord. For the Lord to answer the prayers for our nation, the Lord must live in the hearts Continued to page 9

Nov. 6 Election • My Choices and Why

U.S. Senate Should be an easy choice between current Senator Claire McCaskill and Representative Todd Akin. McCaskill is a moderate who took aim at waste and earmarks in government Akin has not much of a record or reputation in Congress and has taken far right positions on help for students and seniors. His own party and most Missouri Republicans opposed his continuing in this race. They were right. Sometimes we have to oppose or skip the name of one in our own party because they have just gone too far. Many of us cast a very painful vote for Richard Nixon rather than Senator McGovern in 1972. It is a good test for thinking Republicans to do the same for Mr. Akin this year and vote for the clear choice, Claire McCaskill. Governor Several qualified Republicans passed on an opportunity to run for Governor this year. Dave Spence, a total novice, is the nominee who opposes Democratic incumbent Jay Nixon. Nixon has previously been Attorney General and has done a creditable job there as well as during his first term as Governor. Mr. Spence stresses his business experience but has nothing else to recommend him for this critical job and a fat wallet and a degree in home economics don’t make up the difference. Spence reminds me of True Davis who also, some years ago, tried to use his wealth to gain high office with no real experience. It’s Nixon for sure this time. Lieutenant Governor Susan Montee, former auditor, Democrat, over incumbent Peter Kinder who keeps wanting to run for Governor and embarrassing himself. I won’t forget and vote for him later, will you? Montee is my choice. Attorney General Opportunist incumbent Democrat, Chris Koster, former Republican, is opposed by novice Ed Martin, Republican, perhaps the worst candidate for state office after Todd Akin. A not very enthusiastic vote here for Mr. Koster. Secretary of State No incumbent. Don’t know either candidate. No recommendation. State Treasurer Incumbent Clint Zweifel, Democrat is the easy choice over State Representative, Cole McNary the Republican. Zweifel has done a good job of handling the State’s investments and has earned an “excellent” rating for his office from the State Auditor. Mr. McNary is just another example of the name recognition game just happening to have the same last name as long time St. Louis County Prosecutor and County Executive Gene McNary. State Representative District 40 Incumbent Paul Quinn, Democrat, has served three terms and has done an excellent job of following and having input on important issues and his conservative positions on issues fit well in his old and current new district. His opponent, Jim Hansen, is a promising newcomer to the political arena who has run a vigorous and issues oriented campaign. Representative Paul Quinn is my choice in this contest. Statewide Ballot Issues Amendment 3 Opponents to the much copied Missouri Court Plan continue to try to infuse politics into the selection of judges by offering unneeded and harmful changes to the Plan. Vote No on Amendment 3. Proposition A The State of Missouri has controlled the St. Louis Police Depai tinent since the Civil War . The reasons for doing so no longer exist and St. Louis, like all other cities, should control and pay for its own police department. It is past time for making this change. Vote Yes on Proposition A Proposition B This change would increase the tax on a pack of cigarettes from 17 cents to 90 cents. While the tax on tobacco products is low in Missouri, the idea of raising taxes this high on any legal product is the kind of government interference in the marketplace that gives it a bad name. The majority of people addicted to smoking and not smart or strong enough to kick the harmful habit will continue to feed it. It is bad precedent for hiking up taxes on other products. Vote No on Proposition B Proposition E Prohibits the governor from setting up health insurance exchanges without voter or legislative approval. More games from our legislature. Vote No on Proposition E RJF

Dear Editor, Will America sink like the Titanic? Have you ever wondered how great empires could suddenly fall and crumble into non existence? America is a lot like the Titanic. Most Americans are like the passengers on that great ship believing that nothing can ever happen to our great nation, just like those passengers believed that the Titanic was ‘unsinkable’. America has hit an iceberg called financial disaster; our own greed and immorality steered our great country toward that crash. America is now beginning to sink like the Titanic! Will you be one of the passengers sent back to their cabins and told not to worry you will be fine? Will you be like some of those passengers lied to who didn’t get all the facts? Will you be one of the passengers who ignored the facts blinded by their belief that nothing could ever happen to the ship, it was unsinkable? Will you be the one concerned about trivial items like on which side of the life boat would the dog ride while ignoring the fact the ship is sinking now? Will you be one of the passengers that never listened to the instructions for survival and never bothered to put on that life jacket that was offered? Our churches warned Americans how to live and treat each other, but we have reached a point in time when we have thrown God out of our lives, thinking that the moral rules of life don’t apply to us. Many Americans feel it no longer matters if they lie or cheat others to get ahead; morality and God are no longer important. No matter who becomes our President we need to realize we are in Continued to page 14

90 Years Ago Oct. 27, 1922 Walter H. Howell, just west of Paris, has filed suit against the M. K. & T. and Wabash railroads for $6,650 damages alleged to have resulted from fire caused by sparks from a passing locomotive. The fire was on August 20, of this year, while Mr. Howell was away from home. He places a value of $4,000 on the 7 room home destroyed, $2,000 on the household goods, $100 on the contents of the cellar, $350 on the smokehouse and its contents, $150 fro 15 fruit trees and $60 for 6 shade trees. Today (Thursday) is “work day” for both Junior and Senior high schools. The students are attempting to raise $350 to pay for the floor for the new gymnasium and the various classes have been given the following allotments; seniors and post graduates, $55; juniors, $55; sophomores, $100; junior high, $140. People in Paris and vicinity will in the future, have the same privilege of seeing the same motion pictures at the same time that the people in the big cities do. The Opera House has contracted for Paramount’s famous “41 without an alibi” that has been so extensively advertised in the Saturday Evening Post and other great magazines. No other town in northeast Missouri, and few in Missouri outside of St. Louis and Kansas City, will show the same pictures as soon after release.

75 Years Ago Nov. 4, 1937 Mayor Reed, the city council, officials of the Red Cross organization and all citizens are being asked by the government to assist the postal department in the taking of the unemployment census, which will be undertaken in a few days throughout the United States. Cards will be distributed to everyone through the postal department here and in other cities and everyone receiving such a card is being urged this week by Mayor Reed, through a proclamation in this issue of the Appeal, to promptly fill out and return to cards to the postmaster. The government will lend 50c a bushel on all corn that growers may desire to crib and hold for the future. This action puts a crimp in those who were expecting to buy the 1937 crop at 40c or less. Conditions may cause those who have it under Government seal can sell it and pocket the difference. The Government loan value is a guarantee that it will not go below 50c. The formal laying of the cornerstone for the new Government building at Paris will be done by the Masonic Grand Lodge of Missouri, Saturday, under the direction of Past Grand Master James W. Skelly of St. Louis, who will deliver the principal address. Although the building is now ready for occupancy, the corner stone has been left unlaid pending the convenience of Government and Masonic officials who wished to participants in laying it.

50 Years Ago Nov. 1 1962

The Industrial Development Committee at Paris met Monday evening and discussed further plans for work to be done in connection with securing a garment plant for Paris. Children dressed in Halloween costume called on homes in Paris Tuesday night collecting money for UNICEF (United Nations International Emergency Fund) for their churches of Paris. Collections of all the churches totaled $141.55.

Holliday principal honored with SBU Life Service Award. Anna Mae Kinder of Moberly received the prestigious Life Service award from Southwest Baptist University at a special ceremony as part of the University’s Homecoming celebration October 23. Mrs. Kinder and five other alumni received Life Service Awards. In a bizarre story more suited for Ripley’s believe It or Not than the woods of Monroe County, a buck deer has been blamed for a fire last Thursday night. The odd tale began about 5:15 p.m. last Thursday when Mark Twain Lank manager Denny Foss was traveling on Route U near Florida and noticed smoke coming from a wooded area. Foss reported the possible fire to Mark Twain State Park superintendent Rick Johnson, who notified the Perry Fire Department. Using backpacks, the dozen men quickly brought the blaze under control.

Just a Thought


Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012


by Lisa Talton

It’s More Than Pretty Paper hours upon hours of our time and attention in making sure every detail is just right on that special day but then once the knot is tied and years start to pass, we have a hard time finding an hour or two to give to our spouse. We try and justify it by saying we are tired or it is hard to find the time now that we have kids. We always seem to find a reason (or excuse) for not being able to spend that much needed time with our spouses. Sometimes it takes one of us coming out of our comfort zone and initiating the conversation even though we don’t feel like it. Loving someone is a choice and loving someone requires action even when we don’t feel like it. Just like everything else in life, marriage has its ups and it has its downs. We have days when we have to push through even though we don’t feel like it but then we also have days when things run smooth and with ease. We have days when have lots of love, hugs and kisses to give out and then we have days when we can hardly look at our spouses’ face because they have made us so mad. We have days when we enjoy talking to one another so much that we don’t even realize three hours have passed. Then we have other days when we struggle to get even a ten minute conversation in amidst our hectic schedules. Marriage truly is a gift and it doesn’t matter how expensive and beautiful the wrapping paper is or how big the bow is on top because the paper will get torn and the bow will get taken off but the gift we are blessed to share with is our spouse that can last a lifetime if we so choose!!

I can remember an Oprah show I saw quite some years ago that was about women who had spent A LOT of money to make their dream wedding a reality. The interesting thing about this show was that each of the women who had spent gobs and gobs of money on their wedding were no longer married. Then to top it off most them were still paying the wedding off even though they were no longer married. They had used their credit cards to make their dream wedding come to fruition but the only thing they had to show for it now was a bill and a lot of unhappiness. I cannot imagine how hard it must been for the ladies to write those checks out month after month knowing they were no longer with the man they had shared that day with. Sometimes we focus on the wrong things. Sometimes we spend more time, energy and money on the preparation of the wedding day than we do on our actual marriage. We can spend five, ten, fifteen thousand on the wedding day then won’t even fork out a twenty to take our spouse on a date. I think it is so important for a husband and wife to have a date night. It doesn’t have to some elaborate, expensive, well-planned out event (even though I’m sure no spouse would complain if you wanted to have one of those). It can be taking a ride or a walk together. It can be sitting out on the deck and playing cards or watching a movie together. As long as we get to spend some quality one on one time with our spouse it really doesn’t matter what we do. Isn’t it funny how we can give

Six Reasons to Boost Your Financial Literacy By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

What you don’t know about money can hurt you. If you don’t know how to create a budget, fix a poor credit rating or invest in a 401(k) plan, you’re missing out on opportunities that improve your odds for financial stability and success. Financial literacy—an understanding of credit, banking, savings and more—offers you the tools and information you need to improve your financial health and wellbeing. Here are just a few of the things that’ll be easier once you have it: Establishing a budget. If you don’t know where all your money goes each month, you’re not alone. Find out how to create a budget and stick to it. It’s a fundamental step in money management. Managing debt. Carrying some debt is normal, but too much debt can overwhelm your budget. Learn how to address your most expensive debt areas, particularly paying off high-interest credit cards. Buying a home. A home is the single biggest purchase most people make in their lifetimes. Find out how to save for a down payment, obtain financing and understand the details of a mortgage so you can make the best decision about this major investment. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development offers information for potential buyers on its site. Saving money. Whether you’re 16 or 60, knowing the best ways to save money will help you achieve your goals. Learn about basic savings accounts, retirement accounts, and how to make compounding interest work for you. Start with basic banking tips from CNNMoney’s Money 101 series. Getting a loan. Whether you’re going back to school, buying a car or remodeling a room, you might need to take out a loan. How much can you really afford to borrow? Learn how your credit report has an impact on the availability and cost of a loan, and how to fit loan payments into your budget. Planning for emergencies. We’ve all been faced with expenses that can’t be put off―the car needs a new transmission or the plumbing needs more extensive work than you were expecting. Find out how to plan ahead for these unwelcome surprises and keep your budget intact.

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

The Sunday, Oct. 28 services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Patti Grimmett playing “Awesome God” on the piano followed by Debbie Carey leading in song to “Victory In Jesus”, “open My Eyes”, “The Light of the World Is Jesus” and “Amazing Grace”. Pastor John Grimmett led the Unison Prayer and prayers for Shirley Thornhill; Bill Cearley; Lea Holeman; Sharon Sweitzer; Pam Pollock; Brian Carey; Patti, Amanda and Abby Grimmett; for the hurricane to stay at sea;Kaylee Beckman and praise for great travels and the last week hayride and wiener roast. Happy Birthday was sang to Maxine Beuter, Sandy Jackson and Teri Snider followed by the Lord’s Prayer. Pastor John played guitar as he and Patti sang “Amazing Grace/My Chains Are Gone” The message “Now I See!” was based on scripture from Mark 10:46-52, “Jesus is always in the midst of our lives”, just as He was in the life of Bartimaeus, an earthly blind man. and with the faith of mercy, was healed by Jesus, Son of David. With great faith all healing can take place - the world is racing by and not paying attention to those who are in need - Jesus stopped as the crowd was rushing by Bartimaeus to help a blind man. He was not too busy to hear his pleas. With Jesus’ saving grace immediately He transformed him into a man with sight. We need to stop and hear Jesus will -0 throw away the old life and get a new life with faith and love. God cares about you and me! The one who stopped for Bartimaeus will stop for you and for me! Max Tilt led the offertory as Patti played “Open My Eyes, Lord” and all sang the “Doxology”. Patti played “How Majestic Is Your Name” as all retired in fellowship to Roth Hall for coffee and donuts. Services are held every Sunday at 9 a.m. and all are welcome to come hear the word of the Lord. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me... Mark 10:47

Paris Full Gospel Fellowship

Pastor Terry Davison

Sunday, Oct. 28: the sixth chapter of Joshua tells the story of Joshua and the walls of Jericho. The Israelites stood before the fortified city, which looked ominous and foreboding. In that day, walls were constructed to prevent pillaging raids: they were a source of security for those inside. But in this scenario, the Israelites struck fear in the hearts of the citizens of Jericho as God told Joshua that the city would fall to them. They had but to follow God’s simple instructions for six days, and on the seventh, the walls would fall. This literal event teaches us much about our walk of faith. Had the Israelites failed to muster the strength to stand before the fortified enemy, there would have been no victory. Had the enemy not felt fear from the beginning, the walls may not have fallen: giving us much needed lessons for our lives today. We must face our own well fortified enemy: whether it be fame, fortune, sin, or man. We must muster spiritual strength, and heed the Apostle Paul’s words, as he said, “I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.” We must realize that in and of ourselves, we are but feeble souls, but through God’s redeeming power, we can conquer the enemy, sin, within and without.

The memory Bible memory verse is: For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Do not fear, I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13 (NRSV). The thought for the week is: In His Light we find strength to carry on. In His Light, the darkness around us is replaced with hope, love, and forgiveness.

Mt. Airy Baptist Church Pastor Robt. Cavanaugh On Sunday, Oct. 21, 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 a youth accepted Christ after going to the Eternity House at North Park in Moberly last Wednesday. The community prayer service in Paris was a blessing and a thank you to all who came. The Sunday School Attendance Drive was a success with 35 coming. A great time was had by all at the wiener roast and hay ride Saturday night. Do not forget to set your clocks back 1 hour this Saturday night. This week’s message was titles ‘Righteousness Begins with Real Commitment’ and came from Daniel Chapter 1. From this chapter we can see how God moves in godly faithful lives. Daniel had been exiled to Babylon, had his named changed, taught strange teachings, and was offered food that would defile him before God. With courage, conviction, and courtesy Daniel sought to have only vegetables and water so as not to eat food unfit for the Jewish people. We can see God has already moved ahead of Daniel in giving Daniel favor in the chief eunuch’s mind. Because of God’s movement in a faithful person’s life and Daniel having the conviction to be courageous enough not to defile himself, we can see that God blesses those who have real commitment to Him.

Need Thee Every Hour”. Rev. Donna Scott, of the Paris Christian Church brought tears to eyes as she used the story of Corrie Ten Boom to convey the meaning of her phrase. “and forgive their sin.” Corrie had been a Nazi prisoner during WW II, and had seen her sister die because of the prison camps. Years later she related her story to a group of people, as she finished the story a man approached her and asked her to forgive him. He had been a Nazi prison guard. He did not recognize her, but she knew who he was.

At that moment she knew that for God to forgive her sins she must first forgive this man who had become a Christian. As she touched his hand she felt the warmth of forgiveness run down to her hand. The final section of the verse, “To heal their land” was revealed touchingly as Rev. Bob Cavanaugh explained to the group that we must TRUST God. God promised if we do all the prior sections of the verse the he would heal our land. We must trust God and walk with him hour by hour because God

is faithful in his promises. God keeps his promises; faithfulness is the nature of God. He explained that the healing of God is brought to Christians through the death of Christ. We however, can’t know the path of God; it took 70 years in exile to keep his promise to the Jewish people. The evening ended with Hazel Kinder singing “God Bless the USA” and Billie Jo Hatton leading a community sing of “God Bless America”. Reverend Wesley Hammond concluded the evening with the closing benediction.

Area SPORTS Kole Berrey, Justin Wolfe notch double digit tackles in district play

Monroe County Appeal, Paris, Mo. •

The Paris Coyotes (3-7) played Knox County in the first round of district play on Friday, Oct. 26. The Coyotes fell 60-0 and saw their 2012 season come to an end. “This was a tough way to end the season, we kind of took one on the chin,” said Head Coach Gary Crusha. “Knox came out firing on all cylinders and we never could get anything going. They are a good football team who had improved over the course of the season. We will focus on the positives from this season and begin working to improve for next season. We are losing some great seniors, but bring back a good group of underclassman.” Offensively, the Coyotes could never get on track while defensively, Kole Berrey and Justin Wolfe again registered doubledigit tackles for the hard charging Coyote defense. Passing Kyle Popkes was 1 of 2 before an injury forced Steven Hayhurst back to the passing position. Hay-

hurst was 5 of 12 for 53 yards. Justin Wolfe led the team in receiving with two grabs for 29 yards including a 22 yard scamper for a Coyote first down. Ground yardage was hard to come by for the Coyotes as they gained 74 yards rushing in 19 carries with Slater Stone and Hayhurst leading the rushing with 7 yards apiece. Zac Baladenski recovered a fumble and Wolfe registered the team’s lone sack. Statistics Passing: Kyle Popkes 1 completion in 2 attempts -1 yard, Steven Hayhurst 5/12 for 53 yards. Receiving: Zane Vaughn 1 reception for 11 yards, Wolfe 2/29, later Stone 3/12. Rushing: Hayhurst 9 rushes for 7 yards, Laine Forrest 1/1, Wolfe 2/-3, Jon Turner ½, Stone 6/7. Defensive Statistics Tackles: Chance Wheelan 2, Hayhurst 8, Forest 3, Wolfe 12, (1 for a loss), Tucker gruber 3, Trae Hammond 4, Stone 4, Austin Coffman 1, Briar Han-

cock 5, Lawrence Parrott 3, Zac Baladenski 8, Dylan Langerud 3, Brody Lehenbauer 1, John DeOrnellis 1, Kole Berrey 12 (1 for a loss), Shane Umstattd 1. Sacks: Wolfe 1. Fumble Recoveries: Wolfe 1. Season Statistics (Top 3) Passing: Steven Hayhurst 49 completions in 111 attempts for 515 yards, Kyle Popkes 8/20 for 45 yards. Receiving: Slater Stone 27 receptions for 316 yards; Zane Vaughn 8/145; Justin Wolfe 8/74. Rushing: Hayhurst 136 carries for 537 yards; Stone 110/446; Wolfe 43/140. Tackles: Kole Berry 100,

Wolfe 87, Stone 86. Tackles for a loss: Wolfe 12, Stone 9, Berrey 8. Sacks: Berrey 3, Wolfe 2, Austin Wilkerson, Lawrence Parrott, Dylan Langerud and John DeOrnellis all tied with 1. Interceptions: Laine Forrest 4, Hayhurst 3, Chance Wheelan 1. Fumbles: Wolfe 3, Stone 2, Zac Baladenski, Wheelan, Hayhurst, Trae Hammond all tied with 1. Congratulations to Coach Crusha and his staff including Assistant Coaches Quentin Forrest and Mike Fible and all the 2012 Coyotes.

Paris FFA receives three stars Shelby Dickey and Britton Francis represented the Paris FFA Chapter at National FFA Convention by receiving our 3 Star National Ranking. This is the first 3 Star Award the Chapter has ever received. Chapters are ranked nationally with 3 Star being the highest Award. Once a chapter has completed the National Chapter Award at the State level and places in the Top 10% it is then sent to Nationals for Ranking. This is a huge accomplishment for the Paris FFA. This has been a goal that the officers have been working to achieve for five years. Congratulations to the Paris FFA Chapter for your success and working to achieve your goals! The Paris FFA was represented well at National Convention in Indianapolis, IN sending 23 members, 1 State Officer, 1 National Band member, 7 American Degree recipients, 2 Advisors and 12 parents and guests. While at Convention, the members attended number sessions where they were motivated to “Grow” the 2012 National FFA theme. Speakers including Scott Hamilton (retired figure

skater) pushed FFA members to not settle for what they have achieved; there is more to do and learn both in the FFA and in life. While in Indy the members toured the Indianapolis

Speedway, took in some down town shopping and spent time in the FFA career show. This was a National Convention we will soon not forget.
