GLORIA ROUSE RETIRING AFTER 23 YEARS WITH UMB After almost 23 years of being employed by UMB. Gloria Rouse is planning to retire. Gloria enjoyed living in Monroe County her entire life. She graduated from Mark Twain High School and then completed a special secretarial course at Truman State University. Gloria started her banking career at Perry State Bank working as a teller and proof operator. After several years of working there she took time off to be with her husband Robert and their daughter Pamela. On May 29, 1990, she was hired by UMB as a part-time proof operator. That position turned into a fulltime job and Gloria has enjoyed helping UMB customers as a drive-up teller and as a Personal Banking Representative. The banking business has seen many changes through the years, for example the convenience of “Banking-On-The Go”, but something that has not changed is still providing great customer service and showing customers they can “CountOn- More” from UMB. Gloria’s retirement comes at the same time UMB is celebrating their 100-year anniversary, and she is proud to have been a part of that milestone. She cannot say enough about the GREAT dedicated team that she works with at UMB. Not only have they been teammates, but they also have become close friends.

After almost 23 years of being employed by UMB. Gloria Rouse is planning to retire. APPEAL PHOTO

She will miss the daily conversations with her teammates and her customers and she says, “Thank You” to all of them. Gloria is looking forward to spending more time with Robert and her

family and friends. Her plans include taking care of their family home, entertaining at their camp, gardening, crafting, and keeping up with NASCAR.

OPINION

JUST A THOUGHT

UST ASK DAVE...

In With The Old - Part I

From the desk of the Editor

BY LISA TALTON CONTRIBUTING WRITER

BY DAVID EALES EDITOR appeal@parismo.net

How much a year? As I was reading other media sources this week including newspapers, blogs, Twitter, FaceBook, etc. there were numerous references to sports, movie stars and music performers salaries. What salaries they are! For example a local favorite pitcher signed a four year deal worth 97 million dollars while two other baseball players signed long term contracts for 180 and 167 million dollars with the contracts being no longer than six or seven years and loaded with even more money in incentives. Now I think this is great if it is what the market bears but it got me to thinking about the “other” occupations and situations where the money is well deserved but the market does not bear it so to speak. I have always said that the individuals making the least amount of money are the people taking care of our children and the individuals taking care of our elderly. For example: Paris R-II FBLA Sponsor Barb Mason has brought 13 straight district titles and numerous state and national winners home to Paris. If things were equal the school district should lock her up with a multiyear long term mega million dollar contract to make sure that FBLA stays successful. Sara Watson is a local successful young teacher who after serving out her ‘first’ contract should be looked at as a ‘promising rookie’ and also signed to a long term money laden deal to make sure she stays a Coyote. If things were equal this could and should be done for all successful teachers. Cherylene and Juan Ramos, and Larry Isgrig (aka Zig) are local entrepreneurs who have con-

DAVID EALES tributed in a large way to making the local economy successful. Again if all things were equal the City of Paris or the Monroe County Commissioners would be offering long term economic development contracts with large signing bonuses to these worthy entrepreneurs. Local convenience store clerks Kayla Rowe (Abel’s Quik Stop) and Tannielle Parrott (Casey’s General Store) are hard working, diligent and customer service oriented workers who both businesses, if things were like the monopoly money world of sports and entertainment, would be forced to offer large incentive laden contracts to keep their customers happy. What a perfect world it would be if Monroe Manor, Wildwood Care Center, A&J’s Imagination Station and all our other nursing homes and daycare centers were paid according to the fantastic care they provide to our children and seniors. In closing, what if the young man or woman returning home from Afghanistan, putting their lives on the line for our freedom and safety, and enlisting for another tour was paid if things were equal? What would they make? As much as a movie star or pro athlete? The skies the limit!!! Have a great week!

MY TURN

Calm down and close your mouth Am I the only one put off by the noises and gestures of athletes today? And do the folks that take pictures at games and sports events purposely take their pictures when the athlete is at their least attractive? My most recent example is a young lady on the Louisville team pictured, fist clenched and mouth open, in the face of a Baylor player at the Louisville upset victory in the women’s NCAA tournament. Without a caption it looks like a vampire movie in which the shorter player is about to go for the throat. I can almost bet you that one of the pictures resulting from the final four contests will depict some young man in primal scream mode or jumping into a chest bump that looks like two angry roosters fighting to the death. Then there are the silly post touchdown rituals in the end zone, which can and should draw a flag if overdone. And don’t you wish

the coaches of young athletes would tell their kids to keep the noise down, that there is no need for it, it doesn’t improve your game and may scare small children and animals? And wouldn’t tennis be more enjoyable without the loud grunts that escape from both men and women players after they hit the ball? Yes. I am guilty as charged as old fashioned and a known stickler when it comes to being a good sport and keeping our bad habits from finding their way into kids’ sports. So news people please try not to get the very worst view of our athletes on the sports pages the same way you don’t publish pictures of people eating or picking their noses. And coaches stop the noises and gestures early before they become bad habits. And athletes please, please calm down and keep your mouths closed. Thanks so much. I feel a lot better! R.J.F.

I am still talking about family because I believe it is so important to strive to have as healthy as families as possible. We all know there is no such thing as a “perfect” family or a 100% healthy family but there are definitely things we can do, values we can instill, and actions we can take to make our families stronger. And I for one believe our children are worth it. But without healthy families we will not be able to provide the healthy environments they need and also deserve. We should desire to help provide a place for them to flourish and thrive and become all they were created and destined to become. And how awesome a privilege it is that we can choose to be a part of that and make a difference in their lives!!!! I know a lot of people this day and age are looking for the latest and greatest in everything from diet to technology to way of parenting. We sometimes think it is best to have the new this or the new that and think the old this or the old that doesn’t work anymore. Now this may be the case

LISA TALTON sometimes but not always. Sometimes in with the old is what we really need. I am finding this more and more to be the case when it comes to raising our children. All these new ways of discipline, choices, do this, not that, make sure they are reading now by age four or they won’t succeed in school, etc. etc etc., doesn’t really seem to be helping our children be more compassionate, caring, smarter, more successful, less overweight, more respectful of authority. I was raised with high expectations, strict discipline, better use my manners and all that out dated stuff and I think I turned out fine. I couldn’t read before I went to kindergarten and don’t believe I could read

As Time Goes By

All yesteryears are reprinted in the exact text of the original issue 90 Years Ago April 6, 1923 First Women Elected to Monroe County Office: Mrs. Julia C. Mason, principal of the Paris Junior High School was elected County Superintendent of Monroe County schools, on the face of incomplete returns at Tuesday’s school election. Sixty-two districts out of 99 gave Mrs. Mason 1,809 votes to 934 for Prof. Davis Acuff of the Granville School. The districts reporting include all the towns in the county and Mrs. Mason’s majority is believed to be larger than all the votes combined that have not come in. Proposition For a $24,000 Building Gets Majority But Not the Two-Thirds Necessary: At the school election in Holliday, Tuesday, the proposition to vote bonds to the amount of $24,000 for a new school building failed to get the twothirds majority needed The vote was 108 for and 84 against. A change of 20 votes would have given Holliday a new school building. Booster’s for the new building are planning to bring the proposition to a vote again next year, when it is said a new law does away with the twothirds required and allows a majority to carry a bond issue. Elmer Reno and J.J. Johnson were elected to the school board, succeeding L.E. Miller and Perry Lenhart. The vote for County Superintendent was; Mrs. Julia Mason 84, Davis Acuff 118.

75 Years Ago April 7, 1938 Found An 1832 Half Dollar: Dos Buffington, on the Bonsall farm a mile west of Florida, found a silver half dollar that was made in 1832 last Friday. Mr. Buffington unearthed the coin while digging in the pasture. It was six inches below the surface. Coin collectors, it is believed, pay a very large premium for half dollar pieces of that date. Warm March, Cold April: March 1938, was the warmest March on record, and the wettest. Freezing temperatures prevailed on only two days, the 6th and 7th. Total rainfall was trifling less than 4 inches. April came in very wet and very cold. Not a day has been comfortable. Much rain has fallen. On Thursday morning the trees, many of which were in full blossom, were covered with a coating of ice. Building Fire Wall: The stairway between the Paris Plumbing Co. room and the Speed & Blakey furniture store is being torn out this week and the second floor doors leading from on building to the other is being closed. A firewall will be used in their place between the two buildings. 50 Years Ago April 4, 1963 New Cemetery To Be Park Type: Raymond Jackson, of Mexico, was in Paris Wednesday and surveyed and staked out the corners of 15 acre plot of ground

or provide minimal support but I do not believe it is making our children smarter. I still believe one of the best things we can do as a parent is get our children excited about reading at a young age. How do we do that? We start reading to them when they are young. I have yet to find a young child that does not like their parent to read to them. The child associates reading with time spent with their parent. Then when they start reading themselves, we let them read to us. I am not saying all kids will always love to read. Some will start to bore with it while others may continue on but I can almost guarantee that a child at the age of six or seven is not going to turn down a book read by their parent especially if it is something they have been accustomed to doing. Life gets so busy and our children really do want our attention and some of our time. The younger we can start traditions like reading to them the better. I know I would rather have my son snuggled up on my lap while I am reading to him than him playing some educational game on his iPod.

too much more when I left at the end of the year for summer vacation. School at that age consisted of getting us excited about learning. It was about helping us open our minds and seeing some of the possibilities that life had to offer. It was about helping us tap into places inside us that we didn’t even know were there. It was about letting our creative side come out whether it was through painting, or writing, or building, or singing, It was about reinforcing what our parents were teaching us like using our manners, treating people with respect, cleaning up after ourselves. Now some of our teachers are having to introduce these things as new concepts to our children because they are not getting taught them at home. Growing up, my siblings and I did not have iPods, or computers with “educational” games or apps on them to help us in school and all seven of us were above average students. I hear so many parents justify getting their six, seven, eight year old child an iPod, tablet etc. for educational purposes. An educational app or game may be able to help aid a child

the city recently bought from Ray Blades to add to the Walnut Grove cemetery. It has a 990 foot south frontage across the road to the north of the present cemetery. Plans now are for a lawn type cemetery in the new section, with all graves level with the ground and no stones or markers standing above that level. Mrs. Acuff Reelected as Superintendent: Mrs. Mary Acuff, county superintendent of schools, was returned to that job Tuesday in the countywide school election, without opposition. Only a few districts have reported their vote, but there was no opposition apparent in any that did. No one filed against her. Plan New Bridge at North Fork; The State Highway Commission is planning a new bridge across North Fork of Salt River, east of the village of North Fork. A construction contract may be let within the next few months, a highway commission official told the Appeal this week. The bridge will replace the old, worn-out steel bridge known as the Crow Bridge, on that will not carry modern weights. The new bridge will be built at approximately the same site. It will span one of the high reaches of the Joanna reservoir when that is built. The present bridge is 20 feet above the normal level of the lake waters. The new bridge is expected to be at approximately the same level.

25 Years Ago April 7, 1988 Paris Woman is Three Time Lottery Winner: A Paris woman won her third instant game top prize last week when she won $1,000 in the Missouri Lottery’s current instant game, “License to Win.” Charlotte Forbeck, 43, purchased her latest winning ticket at Abel’s Quik Shop, in Paris. She said she planned to take a trip to Las Vegas with her winnings. This is the second time Forbeck has won $1,000 in the “License to Win” game, and she won $86,000 in February of 1986 in the “Jackpot 8” instant game.

SR-22 Information What You Need To Know

By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

If your driver’s license has been suspended, your state Department of Motor Vehicles may require you to obtain an SR-22 document known as a Certificate of Financial Responsibility. An SR-22 verifies the purchase of vehicle insurance coverage required by the state for reinstatement of driving privileges. Reasons Why an SR-22 May Be Required The requirement to have an SR-22 is usually associated with: Multiple traffic offenses; DUIs, DWIs, or other serious moving violations; License suspension or revocation; or Violations for failure to maintain the mandatory insurance coverage required in your state. If you are required to get an SR-22, the traffic court where you appeared or the Department of Motor Vehicles will notify you by mail. The insurance company will charge a fee for providing an SR-22 certificate on your behalf. The amount of the fee may differ by state. Additional fees may be charged by the state. Typical SR-22 Terms Terms and requirements vary by state, but generally: You must retain both the SR-22 and your insurance policy for approximately three years. If your insurance policy lapses, your insurer is required by law to notify the Department of Motor Vehicle’s office. Your license will be suspended until your insurance has been reinstated. Once you have met your SR-22 obligations for the proscribed amount of time, your SR-22 status will be removed. Contact your insurance agent for more SR-22 information, and to determine the SR-22 and liability insurance requirements in your state. Your insurance agent can assist you in obtaining insurance and the SR-22 certificate through an insurance provider in your area.

CHURCH NEWS

Pastor Wesley Hammond The adult choir presented the cantata “One Holy Lamb” directed by Cheryl Gholson. Those singing were Diana Hammond, Lydia Treat, Gaylon Daffron, Ina Rae Brazeale, Libby Williams, Marsha Threlkeld, Chuck Brazeale, Charles Ensor, and Wayne Daffron. A solo part was sung by Mary Jo Crawford and a duet was sung by Mac Wilt and Billie Jo Hatton. A trio was presented by Brenda and Steve Ensor and Brenda Vaughn. The children’s sermon was given by John Mitchell. He asked, “What are we doing today?” We are celebrating Jesus resurrection (a big word) which means he was raised from the dead. He asked them several questions such as: “Who loves you?” “Who saves you?” Each question was answered by the name “Jesus”.

Rev. Wesley Hammond gave the Easter message. Jesus is the Lamb of God. Satan was defeated in Jesus’ resurrection. In the Book of John, chapter 1, John the Baptist speaks of Jesus as the “true light”. In verse 29, he refers to Jesus as the “Lamb of God”. John tells others that he is preparing the way of the Lord. We should accept Christ and live the life of Christ. Announcements: Crossroads Baptist Association Vocation Bible School Clinic on Saturday, April 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Moberly First Baptist Church. Community Easter Celebration, Sunday, April 7, at 7 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Paris. No Deacon training on April 7. Deacon’s meeting is Thursday, April 4.

Pastor David Holmes Easter services at Holliday Christian Church were opened with the duet prelude by Sally Blakemore, pianist, and organist, Jane Akers. The large crowd in attendance was welcomed by David Holmes, Pastor. The county hymn sing will be held at Paris Christian Church on Sunday evening, April 7, at 6:30 p.m. Happy birthday wishes were sent to: Jay Willoughby, Bobby Ragsdale and Shelby Thrasher.

As the communion hymn, “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”, was sung, Jerry Ragsdale and Pete Olney, elders, went forward to serve at the Lord’s Table. Serving as deacons were: Gary Wilson, Gerald Roberts, Phil Blakemore and Guy Callison. Following sharing of communion and offering collection, pastoral prayer and the doxology closed the communion service. The message of “The Risen Christ Appears to All of Us” was shared by Reverend Holmes. Scripture reference was from John 20:1-18. The hymn of invitation and dedication, “Beneath the Cross of Jesus”, was followed by prayer and singing of “The Spirit Song” to close morning worship. Following worship everyone enjoyed a breakfast of pancakes, bacon and scrambled eggs prepared by the men of the church. Regular services will resume on Sunday, April 7, with worship at 9:30 a.m., followed by Bible Study at 10:30 a.m. All are welcome to attend.

Grace United Methodist Church held two services Easter Sunday, March 31. The Sunrise Service was given by the youth of the church on the events of the first Easter Morning as a skit.

On Sunday, March 31, church services began with the pastor giving an opening prayer. Regular church meetings of the week were announced and all were encouraged to attend. Announcement included: The Anne Armstrong offering for North America Missions will be collected for another week due to the snow closure of church last week. The church’s goal is $650. The men cooked breakfast for the women on Easter morning and the event was well attended. Mother’s Day Tea will be held on May 4, contact Peggy Evans to RSVP. On Sunday, April 6 the youth will perform their skit program at morning services. The Lord’s Supper was taken after morning services. This week’s message was titled ‘The Resurrection of Christ’ and came from John 20:1-18. Jesus taught that He would rise from the dead (Jn. 6) before He went to the Cross. No one expected Jesus to rise on the morning Mary went to anoint Jesus’ body with spices. Peter and John did not think Jesus had resurrected after they had looked in the empty tomb. They believed Jesus was alive but not resurrected. Mary was the only one who stayed around the tomb that day. Mary’s grief was deep from the loss of the body of Christ. Mary asked the gardener

if he had removed the body and did not know it was Jesus she was talking to. She did not realize this was Jesus until Jesus called her by name. Jesus had called her name many times in the years they had traveled together. This is the first time the risen Lord had called to Mary. This is how each of us must meet Jesus as Lord and Savior. He must call to each of us personally and we must hear His voice. We also must respond to Jesus as Mary did when she called Jesus “Master”. Jesus tells Mary to go tell of what she has seen and she does so without any discussion, debate, or thought of how her reputation might be tarnished from saying she just saw Jesus alive and risen from the grave. What does a historical account of 2,000 years ago have to do with our modern day society? The power of the resurrection of Christ is still available to each of us today. We just need to slow down the pace of life and listen for Jesus to call each of us by name. The power of the resurrection is shown by the changes in the lives that Jesus touches. When Jesus called Mary by name, the calling brought joy into her life. Her life, as each of the Apostle’s lives was changed by the personal calling of Jesus. Can you hear Jesus calling you today?

Pastor Kenny Sharp

Sunrise service took place at Buzzard’s Roost followed by breakfast and an Easter egg hunt between Sunday school and worship service. The title of Pastor Kenny’s sermon was, “Rise Up!”. Now is the time to praise Him, for He is worthy to be praised. We are to be victorious over death, the grave, and fears. The same Jesus that died, and rose again from the dead is the same Jesus that is still with us today. Jesus overcame everything, so that we too may overcome everything. Happy Birthday was sung to Bobbie Wisdom, Kayla Baker, and Dale Bridgeford. Saturday April 6, at 8 a.m., will be the first VBS planning meeting at the fellowship hall and VBS is May 27-31. Sunday, April 7, David Kendrick will be doing a presentation on his mission trip to Haiti from earlier this year. Prayers for Shang Williams, Charles York, Tracy

Greggs, Clyde, (Jo Reynolds dad), Lois Lane, Gabby Sharp, Robert DeOrnellis, Bill Azdell, Kacy Bell, traveling mercies for Jill and Dane Kendrick, our nation, our youth. Praises were for those that hit deer this morning with no injuries, James A. Booth got into the VA home, in Mexico, Kayla Baker and Alissa (Bill and Pat Miller’s granddaughter) both being accepted into the National Honor Society, 30 baptism’s of children from Hannibal High School, and FCA had a good turn out at their youth rally last week. Bible study is every Wednesday night, carry in meal at 6 p.m., and study at 6:30 p.m., including a youth study, Sunday school at 9:30 a.m., and worship service at 10:30 a.m.

John 11:25-26 – (25) Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, (26) and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” (NASB) Greetings from FaithWalk Ministries – Bishop Harold G. Long, Pastor Resurrection Celebration Services began at 10:30 a.m. “Oh Lord, How Excellent” was sung by FaithWalk Choir Opening prayer was led by Elder Helen Fugate. Opening Scripture was read by Bro. Michael Thompson – St. Mark 16:3-7. “Emmanuel” was sung by FaithWalk Choir Offering (Seed Planting) was directed by Minister Kelley Ballenger. Our Vision and Mission Statements were read in unison, declaring that FaithWalk is about, “Building and Sustaining Strong Communities by Breaking the Cycle of Addictive Failures.” “My Worship Is For Real” was sung by FaithWalk Choir “The Presence of the Lord” was sung by Bishop Long with FaithWalk Choir to prepare for the Word of God. Bishop Long’s message was entitled “The Passion of Christ.” Acts 1:3 Passions-intense emotions, a driven spirit, developed by something distinguished with factors attached, which is sometimes misguided.

Paris

Colossians 3:5-9 Avoid misguided passions-vs. 5. Children of disobedience live by misguided passions-vs. 6. Believers MAY sin, but they do not practice sinning, because believers put off misguided passions-vs. 7. The end result of living by misguided passions does not result in blessing. What caused Jesus Christ to have intense passion? St. John 3:16 – He Is love, loving a fallen world, loving the end result…that people might be saved. He conquered what we could not conquer. Isaiah 53:3-12 (The Passion of Christ) Through it all, He loves us. He knew all of this would happen. He was slain before the foundation of the world. He gave us a way out before we even needed it. Love caused Him to endure. God knew the end result and it pleased Him – vs. 10. I Peter 1:8-11 Because we believe in Christ’s passion, we rejoice and receive salvation of our souls. Hebrews 12:2 Jesus was thinking about the end result of joy and glory. Time was offered at the altar for prayer and salvation. Everyone is welcome to come and worship with us. Tuesday at 7 p.m., Wed. - Men and Women Support groups at 6 p.m., Thursday at 7 p.m., and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. God bless you!

Pastor John Grimmett The Sunday Easter services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Patti Grimmett playing the “Easter Prelude” on the organ followed by Debbie Carey leading in song to “Christ The Lord Is Risen Today”, “Christ Arose”, “He Lives” and “Must Jesus Bear the Cross Alone”. Pastor John Grimmett led the Responsive Reading from Isaiah 65, with prayer for Lana Shields; Mary Parsons; James A; Betsy; Tonya,m Karen and Joe Miller; Terri Gash; Abby Grimmett on her recent engagement; and happy birthday was sang to Vaneda Orth, followed by all saying the Lord’s Prayer. The morning special “Redeemer” was sang by Debbie. The message “Gone Fishin’” was based on scripture from John 21:114 as the fish story in John’s gospel was to tell the story of Jesus life - Jesus was resurrected, the risen Jesus was by the sea of Galilee where he approached the disciples. They had gone fishing and caught nothing; Jesus then told them to throw the net to the right side of the boat - right or wrong - there were too many

fish to haul in - they recognized the Lord as the catch was brought in. Jesus had loaves of bread and fish for the disciples. He broke the bread and fed them. The living breathing Jesus is in our lives today with us - with you and me - He spends time with those He cares about. Christ’s spirit is at work everyday, today for truth and wisdom. “You’re fishing on the “wrong” side of the boat - try the other side “the right side” with the resurrected power of Jesus”. God has glorious things in mind for your - “dynamite” power - Jesus wants to make you fishers of men... Not matter where you are. Jesus is part of your life everyday, if you only open your heart to understand - change the world today with a new life... Bobby Gash and Kaylee Beckham led the offertory as Patti played “I Know That My Redeemer Liveth” and all sang the “Doxology”. Patti played “The Strife Is O’er” 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 a,ttend to hear the word of the Lord. Hallelujah! He is Risen!

Health Department Director addresses “9-12” group

u Continued from page 1A Delaney went on to explain how to prepare a kit including a three-day supply of food, water, first aid equipment, medicine, and even necessary pet supplies. Last of all, Administrator Delaney explained that residents need to listen for information including such warnings as tornado watch or warning; and flood and storm warnings. “Be advised and be informed,” said Delaney. “In health care we have to be prepared for a disaster if the health department or an area hospital is struck. The medical community has plans in place - for a mass disaster.” Delaney explained that another way to be prepared is through the creation of the Medical Reserve Corps. The MRC purpose is to recruit health professionals and non-medical people into volunteer service; train and educate members; assist with surge personnel needs; participate in nonemergency essential public health services, such as health education and community outreach; and integrates volunteers and first responders for emergency response. In a video explaining the role of the Medical Reserve Corps it was noted that the time to get involved is now before a disaster strikes. All emergencies are local first and need local volunteers. The MRC helps train and prepare volunteers in advance of any need. This unit is developed at the local level.

It was also noted that it takes a dedicated unit to keep communities safe and ready for any contingency. “Everybody and anybody should volunteer,” said Administrator Delaney. “Some volunteers just want to give back to the community while others like the social interactions in the corps.” “We spend some of our times training to be prepared,” added Delaney. Director Delaney discussed a recent training scenario involving a multi discipline team. “There are currently forty-three volunteers on hand at the MRC,” noted Delaney. “MRC can assist local hospital or health clinic.” Delaney noted that the MRC is funded through grants as the health department cannot fund an entity such as the MRC. “It is through these grants that we can have the unit,” said Delaney. “We are training to be prepared for any disaster that strikes.” Delaney explained to those assembled how individuals can sign up as a volunteer. “You can try us out for awhile and see if it is your cup of tea,” said Administrator Delaney. Delaney took questions after her thorough presentation. For additional information or to volunteer contact the Monroe County Health Department at 660-327-4653 or visit their office at 310 North Market, Paris.

AREA NEWS/SPORTS Laine Forrest, Steven Hayhurst lead Coyotes to 23-3 win Francis pitches one hitter in debut

The Paris Coyotes (10) traveled for their first road game to the Paris Fairgrounds on Monday, April 1, to play Slater in their first baseball game of the season. Due to Slater’s field being unplayable the Coyotes were visitors for the home game and took a quick 2-0 lead at their first at bat to set the tone of their 23-2 drubbing of Slater. The Coyotes were led by freshman shortstop Laine Forrest who had a great stat line with 2 hits, 6 RBIs and he also scored 3 runs – one of those runs via his grand slam homer to right center field. Catcher Steven Hayhurst also drilled a 2 run dinger to deep center field reaching the secondary field and led the team with a 3 hit game, scored 3 runs and added 5 runs batted in. Slater Stone added 4 RBIs on a 2 hit game while Brant Francis helped his pitching cause with 2 runs batted in, added a hit and scored 2 runs. Adding hits for the contest were Stone 2, Hayhurst 3, Shane Umstattd, Forrest 2, Francis 1, Stephan Whelan 1. Scoring runs were Zane Crigler, Stone, Kyle Popkes 3, Chance Wheelan 2, Hayhurst 3, Umstattd 2, Forrest 3, Tucker Gruber 1, John DeOrnellis 2, Francis 2, Whelan 2. Driving in runs were Stone 4, Hayhurst 5, Umstattd 2, Forrest 6, Francis 2. The first inning of the season scoring saw Francis walk, steal second, advanced to third on a wild pitch while Hayhurst also walled and stole second. Stone then stroked a single down the right field line to score both Francis and Hayhurst for the first runs of the Coyote season. The Coyotes sent 11 batters to the plate in the second inning with Francis plating 2 runs and Stone added another 2 RBIs. In the third frame, Forrest hit a screamer to center and advanced to second on a bobble. Hayhurst then crushed the next pitch to deep center crashing off the roof of the other field dugout for

his 2 run dinger. In the fourth inning, the Coyotes sent 14 batters to the dish culminating in 12 runs with 4 of those runs coming courtesy of the grand slam by Forrest, who took a belt high fast ball deep over the right center field fence. In the inning, Shane Umstattd also ripped a line drive down the right field line scoring 2 runs while Hayhurst added another 2 RBIs with a seeing eye liner to left. Overall, Paris took a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning and Slater added a first inning run to draw within a single score. In the second inning the Coyotes broke open the scoring with a 7 spot to lead 9-0. The Coyotes added another 2 runs in the third and had a break out 12 run fourth to lead 23-1. Slater had their lone hit in the fourth (the home run) and Paris took the run shortened contest 23-2. Francis (1-0) pitched his way put of an early first inning jam and subsequently tossed a stellar one hitter (a home run late) yielding 9 walks in his first season action while striking out 6 and picking up the complete game victory. The past snowstorms have rained havoc on the early baseball season not allowing pitchers to pitch off a mound before actually taking the field. It was a great way to start the 2013 season,” said Coach Mike Fible. “You could tell by looking at the boys as they came to the field they were ready. Brant Francis did a great job for us on the mound with his first complete game of the season. Offensively Laine Forrest led the way as a freshman with 3 hits, 6 RBI, 2 runs and a grand slam for his first varsity homerun. We look forward to tonight (April 2) as Mark Twain comes to Paris.” Paris continues the season at Cairo on Thursday, April 4 and then travel to Shelbina on Tuesday, April 9 to face South Shelby.

The Village of Holliday will hold a town board meeting Saturday April 13, at the Holliday Farm Service building, at 10 a.m.

Town board officers will be elected and any other business will be taken care of as needed. Please plan to attend.

Blake Hultz scores first Panther run The Madison Panthers (0-1) traveled to South Shelby for their first baseball game of the season. In a close contest the Panthers fell 3-2 to the Cardinals. South Shelby struck early scoring 2 runs in the first inning. Madison answered with a single run in the third when Blake Hultz doubled to left field, stole third and scored on a Blake Brown sacrifice fly. South Shelby added another run to lead 3-1 after three innings. In their half of the seventh inning, Dustin Ketchem was hit by pitch, advanced to second on an error, advanced to third on a groundout and scored on an RBI double by Tyler Bennett to center field to end the game’s scoring. Collecting hits for the Panthers were Blake

Hultz (double), Tyler Bennett 2 (a hit and a double) and Jacob Wandrey. Bennett and Brown each registered an RBI while Hultz and Ketchem scored runs. Hultz, Bennett and Ketchem each had a stolen base for the game. Blake Brown (0-1) pitched 5 innings surrendering all 3 runs on 4 hits while walking 2 and striking out 3 Cardinal batters.

Madison FFA and Monroe City Sheltered Workshop will now be able to better serve the community, thanks to the support of local farmer, Tracy Morgan, and America’s Farmers Grow Communities. Sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of Monsanto Company, Grow Communities provides farmers in eligible counties the chance to win a $2,500 donation for a local nonprofit organization of their choice. To further support counties declared natural disaster areas by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) due to the drought this year, winning farmers in these counties are able to direct double donations, a total of $5,000. Monroe County was declared a disaster area by the USDA, giving Morgan the opportunity to choose two organizations to receive $2,500 donations. Morgan selected Madison FFA and Monroe City Sheltered Workshop. The Madison FFA will use the donation to give

members the opportunity to attend many different quality leadership conferences and events. The Monroe City Sheltered Workshop will use the money to help with expenses for a trip this summer. “I chose the FFA because I want to help Ag youth as much as possible,” Morgan said. “Also, my sister works for the shelter, so I am glad to help them out.” This year, the Monsanto Fund will invest nearly $6 million in rural America through Grow Communities, which includes double donations for counties impacted by the historic drought. In Missouri, $355,000 is being given across 71 counties. America’s Farmers Grow Communities is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund to partner with farmers in helping them positively impact their communities. This program is part of the Monsanto Fund’s overall effort to strengthen rural America.
