From the desk of the Editor

In With The Old Part Three


“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts.” I think that maybe when Shakespeare wrote this he had been in the hands of the politicians of his day. Now faithful readers of these words have never seen me wax either pro or con about politics in this space. I leave that for others to do. But this time I take pen (okay keyboard) in hand to discuss a point that has been bothering me. Gun control? No! Immigration reform? No! What I think is a travesty is the action of the Missouri Senate Appropriations Committee in completely removing the home delivered meals program monies from the Senate version of the state budget. While the House Appropriations Committee left in the funding (which had been reduced by 1.5 million dollars in 2010 by the same legislature with a promise to restore the cuts within the next year) the removal of the Senate funding means that a committee of both houses will now decide what monies will be left in and what monies removed of the final proposed budget. Has this happened before? Of course it has. The legislature has before used the meals of seniors who have faithfully supported and paid their salaries over many years as lever-


age to play the “you give on this item and we will give on that” game. The problem with playing this dangerous game is that now with the loss of additional funds to the “sequestration” numbering in the $250,000-300,000 range the loss of any additional monies is critical. Some seniors depend on these meals to make it from day to day. They are not pawns, and they definitely are not voters to be trifled with. These are our parents, grandparents, friends and neighbors. The way to heal our national or state problems should not be laid at the feet of our seniors or even our youth in reducing how much they get to eat. So my suggestion to our legislature leaders – figure it out, restore the funding and find creative ways to think outside of the box and not remove the food in the box from the mouths of our seniors. Have a great week! Editor’s Note: For more information or to help the meal program contact the Paris Senior Citizen’s Center Director Tara Sheffield 660-327-5824.


Changing The Game For College Admissions

The envelopes are in the mail. Some of our high school students will be getting admission notices from colleges to which they have applied. Others shall receive rejection letters. Behind many of these decisions by colleges and universities are some changes that have moved them away from emphasis on merit and a student’s qualifications to a long look at their bottom lines. Our state universities, the usual path to social and economic mobility, especially for the middle class, are changing their admission policies under the twin economic pressures of rising costs and diminished government support. There is evidence that some state schools now are offering to admit more rich out of state kids who can afford hefty tuition bills but are not exceptional students. These students are offered easy majors, lax grading, social opportunities and nice dorms. Top universities are admitting some low income students but in decreasing numbers. When you also figure in space for under represented minorities and athletes, the competition

for the few seats available is intense. Colleges and universities at all levels have continued to deviate from merit based admissions to make room for their recruited athletes. This means lower standards in order to build sports programs for student athletes who do not perform well in class. Our higher education system has been the path to social and economic mobility and the constant strength of a vibrant and prosperous middle class. Many of our best and brightest students of modest means that are willing and able to take on major debt and work their way through college will find that merit alone is not the only measure that our colleges and universities now consider but your athletic ability and the size of your wallet have become more important in some quarters. To the extent that we allow our schools to do this without complaint we help them make it more difficult for our bright young graduates to afford quality higher education and aid in the decline of the already shrinking middle class in America.

The last couple weeks spent talking about raising children really got me thinking about my parents and how thankful I am for the way they raised me and my siblings. They were not afraid to tell us no. They made us get jobs and learn responsibility. They showed us how to treat others with respect, compassion and kindness. They expected us to respect authority and obey our teachers and adults. They showed us how to speak kind, positive words. They let us fail in things which helped us learn how to bounce back. I also appreciate the era in which I grew up. I hope we can bring back some of the old way of doing things that worked and incorporate them with the new things that are working. I want to end this series with an email that was sent to me about the time period when I grew up. I thought this went along well with what I had been talking about. I hope you enjoy it!!! To all the kids who

LISA TALTON survived the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s! First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can and didn’t get tested for diabetes. Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-base paints. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets. When we rode our bikes we had on baseball caps not helmets. As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes. Riding in the back of a pick-up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.

As Time Goes By

90 Years Ago April 20, 1923 Goodbye to R.H. Moorman: Rev. R.H. Moorman closed his service as pastor of the First Baptist Church Sunday night. All the other congregation dismissed and joined to make the meeting a community event, the crowd being one of the largest that had ever been packed into the building. Moorman was at his best. Instead of indulging in reminiscences or tossing rhetorical bouquets, his last message was in the nature of an appeal to Christian people to rise

to higher standards, while to non-Christians it was a vigorous exhortation to link up with the Church in the work it has been commissioned to do. Moorman was a community asset as well as a religious leader and as such he will be missed by all sorts of people. Accompanied by his good family he left Tuesday afternoon for Cheyenne, Wyo., to begin his work as pastor of a large congregation. An Unusual Record: According to T.T. Rodes, the Paris School Board probably holds the record in the state for the number


Dear Editor, It finally appears that Spring has arrived. With the nicer weather flowers are blooming, trees are filling out and people will be out walking and doing outdoor activities. This is the time to clean up the yard and kick off the mowing season. Grass and weeds will need to be kept less than seven inches in height and it would be appreciated when mowing not to discharge grass into the street to keep storm drains from getting clogged. The heavy snowfalls did leave many downed tree limbs so please take advantage of the brush pickup by the City on the first and third Fridays of the month. Remember to place yard waste in bags, cut tree limbs to less than ten feet in length and place these items next to the street curb. Pet owners need to be considerate by keeping their animals on their own property or on leashes and restrain dogs from any excessive barking. Also there are numerous junk items and unlicensed/inoperative vehicles in yards around town. The City does have an ordinance which prohibits the open storage of junk and unlicensed/inoperative vehicles so it would be appreciated if these unsightly items are removed, or if vehicles are repaired and properly licensed, before a notice has to be issued. There is bulk trash pickup scheduled for May 1 and May 16, which will provide an opportunity to dispose of junk items. The City of Paris will be much more appealing if everyone does their part in keeping their property well maintained. Phillip Shatzer Paris City Superintendent

FRIENDS And we went outside and found them! We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth. And there were no lawsuits from these accidents. We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever. We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes. We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them. Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!! The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever. The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends from one bottle and no one actually died from this. We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon.. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar. And, we weren’t overweight. WHY? Because we were always outside playing... that’s why! We would leave home in the morning and play all day, As long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. And, we were O.K. We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem. We did not have Playstations, Nintendo’s and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, No video movies or DVD’s, no surround-sound or CD’s, No cell phones, No personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms. WE HAD

of men to be secretary of the board. Only two have held the office since the organization of the district. T.B. Robinson was secretary until 1885 and T.T. Rodes has been secretary ever since. 75 Years Ago April 21, 1938 200 Children Found 60 Pounds of Eggs: Approximately 200 children of Paris and the surrounding trade territory gathered at the Fairgrounds Sunday afternoon for the annual Progressive Club Easter Egg hunt, and found sixty pounds of eggs that had been hidden about the grounds. Over 2,000 eggs were provided. A big crowd of adults attended the even, which was in charge of Russell Patrick, Roy Huffman and Wayne Thompson, who were assisted by Ed Dunkin and his boy Scouts. Paul Takes in More Territory: Paul Alexander, published of the Mercury at Paris, bought the News at Shelbina this week. He is the third owner the News has had since it was started six weeks ago. Key-Shatzer Wedding: Miss Hazel Key, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roger Key, and Charles Shatzer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Shatzer, were married at the Key home Sunday morning in a pretty home ceremony before fortyfive intimate friends and relatives of the young couple. The ceremony was performed before the candle-lighted fireplace by Rev. Harold Roberts, pastor of the Paris Christian church.

50 Years Ago April 18, 1963 Three Paris F.F.A. members for State Farmer Degree: Three boys of the Paris Future Farmers of America Chapter will be recommended for the State Farmer Degree before the student delegate body of the State FFA Convention in Columbia Friday night at 7:30 p.m. The boys are Arvid Hall, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hall, south of Holliday; Eddie King, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry King, north of Paris; and Jim Sheerman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Sheerman, of Holliday. A reception for parents and guests of the boys will be held at the Student Union building from 4 to 5:30 p.m. The State Famrer Degrees will be given at Jesse Auditorium. 25 Years Ago April 21, 1988 Union Bridge receives face-lift; The smell of spring fills the air as rushing water cascades across the low water bridge beneath the Union Covered Bridge. The bridge stands amongst metal supports and cables that hold it in place as workers begin the necessary construction that will bring the bridge back to life. The bridge operated as a working bridge until 1970, but it will never see the strain of those days again as it will be closed to strictly walking traffic. The Union Bridge is one of only four remaining covered bridges in the state. It is also the only one left of five that were originally in Monroe County, but were removed by nature.

Giving peace of mind at tax time is important but customer service during & after the return is complete is of greater concern to me. Preparing tax returns can be complicated & confusing. If you are able to prepare your own, great! If you hate to do so , you will be happy to know that as of Jan. 1, 2011 all tax preparers must be registered with the IRS & have passed a formal exam. If you don’t prepare your own tax return, choose wisely. Taxpayers are legally responsible for what’s on their tax return even if someone else prepares it. So, it is important to choose carefully when hiring a firm to prepare your return. Here are a few points to keep in mind:

Tips For starting Out in Mutual Funds

By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

A mutual fund is an investment that pools together funds from many investors who have the same investment objectives. The money is managed by a professional who analyzes the financial markets and selects investments. And the pool is large enough to afford a diverse array of securities, something that can be too expensive for most individual investors to do themselves. A mutual fund provides an opportunity to invest in a diversified portfolio. The access to professional management and a diversified portfolio makes mutual funds popular with many individuals who are investing for retirement, a child’s college education, or other long-term goals. Whether you are doing the research yourself or working with a registered agent, understanding some of the basics may help you make a more educated decision. Starting Your Research There are thousands of funds available, but how do you choose? Funds are broken down into a few basic categories: stock, bond, and hybrid (mixed stock and bond) funds; lower risk and higher risk; domestic and international. If you start by thinking about those categories and how they fit your goals, you can sort through the options a bit more efficiently. The key offering information for a mutual fund is found in the prospectus, a document that explains the investment objective, the fees, and the fund management. Start with the investment objective. Does it fit what you are looking for? If you won’t need this money for years, perhaps you may look to take more risk. Fees And Expenses The next thing to consider is the sales charge. Many funds charge investors when they purchase shares in the fund. This is known as a front load. Some will charge you a back end load when you take money out. This is used to compensate the registered agent who assisted you with your selection. Such assistance can be valuable! You should also take a look at the fund’s expense ratio. This is a measure of what it costs an investment company to operate a mutual fund. Depending on the type of fund, operating expenses vary widely. The largest component of operating expenses is the fee paid to a fund’s investment manager/advisor. Other costs include recordkeeping, custodial services, taxes, legal expenses, and accounting and auditing fees. Some funds have a marketing cost referred to as a 12b-1 fee, which would also be included in operating expenses. Looking At Performance With the expenses in mind, take a look at the fund’s long-term performance. You want to get a sense of how it does when the financial markets are strong and when they are weak. Every investment has its ups and downs, but you want to make sure you can live with the fund’s volatility and that the volatility is appropriate for that particular investment. As part of that, you want to compare the fund’s performance to an appropriate market index, such as the S&P 500 for a U.S. large company stock fund or the Russell 2000 Index for a U.S. small company stock fund. This seems like a lot of work, but there are some helpful resources available. Morningstar, a company that evaluates mutual funds, has great information on its website. Many people use a registered agent to help them, too. Investing involves risk, including potential for loss. Diversification and asset allocation do not assure a profit or protect against loss. Foreign investments involve greater risks than U.S. investments, including political and economic risks and the risk of currency fluctuations. Bonds are subject to interest rate risk and may decline in value due to an increase in interest rates. The stocks of small companies are more volatile than the stocks of larger, more established companies. The S&P 500® Index tracks the common stock performance of 500 large U.S. companies. The Russell 2000 Index tracks the common stock performance of the 2,000 smallest U.S. companies in the Russell 3000 Index. Neither State Farm nor its agents provide investment, tax, or legal advice. Securities are not FDIC insured, are not band guaranteed, and are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal. Securities issued by State Farm VP Management Corp.

Pastor Bonnie Sudsberry The Madison Grace United Methodist Church held worship Sunday, April 14. Pastor Bonnie Sudsberry gave the message, “By His Wounds, We Are Saved.--What Do We Do Now?,” with Acts 2: 14a, 36-41 as the scripture. “There Is a River,” was a solo sung by Nancy Schofield for the special. Sunday, April 21, Native American Ministries offering will be taken.

On Sunday, April 14, 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 Andy Griffin Bible Study with dinner is at 5:30 p.m., tonight. April 20 at 7 p.m., will be pizza and movie night at the church. On Wednesday, April 24, the church will provide dinner to Camper’s for Christ at Camp Ceadercrest. Mother’s Day Tea will be held on May 4, contact Peggy Evans to RSVP. On May 5, at 5 p.m. the youth will host a Mexican dinner as a fundraiser for their Canada Mission Trip. This week’s message was entitled ‘Endure Through the Days of Noah’ and came from Mt. 24:13, 36-44 and 2 Tim.3:1-9. Jesus said he would return when the days where like the days of Noah. Genesis 6:5: 11 tells us Noah’s day was totally corrupt and violent. Is this what Christians have to look forward to before going home at the Second Coming of Christ? Paul gives a view of the society that will be on earth at the time of Christ’s return. Paul tells us it will be dangerous and then gives a long list of characteristics of those who will inhabit the earth. This list shows why this time on earth is dangerous. Without going through the list (space limitations) you will find that none of the characteristics are godly. Mankind will be totally self-absorbed and fierce one could say that human will have become the most dangerous animal on the planet. God did not make mankind as

Hultz Retires From Marine Corps Pastor David Todd

New Marine recruit Donald Hultz circa 1981

Lt. Colonel Donald Hultz

On April 1, 2013, Donald Hultz, son of Judy Hollingsworth of Paris and Joe Hultz of Mexico, retired after nearly 32 years of service in the Marine Corps. He entered the Marine Corps in May of 1981, immediately upon graduating from Paris High School. Don has travelled to and lived in many countries, such as Cuba, Japan, and North Korea. The two Koreas are undoubtedly his favorite with Japan as an honorable mention. While he became an accomplished martial artist in association with Japan, it was the Koreas that gave him a better appreciation of life, food, and people. Some travels and duty were not always big on fun but they were always big on adventure. There were: the mine fields of Cuba in 1982, counterterrorism in the Philippine jungle in 1986 (the snakes were scarier than the terrorists), an eviction notice for the Iraqis in

Kuwait in 1991, and two tours feeding the Somalis in 1993 and 1995. Retired Lieutenant Colonel Hultz started his Marine Corps Career as a private. In 1995 he obtained the Marine enlisted rank of Gunnery Sergeant and then became a Warrant Officer in 1996. In all, Don held thirteen ranks in the Marine Corps. His jobs in the Corps included: Supply Clerk, 81MM Mortarman, Close Combat Instructor, Close Quarter Battle Marine, Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technician, and EOD Officer. While he enjoyed firing all types of weapons the most, being part of the EOD program was extremely rewarding. EOD personnel have saved countless lives in the clearance of explosive devices. Our thoughts, prayers, and donations should go to the Wounded Warrior Project. Don contributes his success in the Marine Corps to the strong work ethics he learned from northern Missourians. Having observed a lot of Marines from a lot of places he can attest that people from communities like Paris understand hard work and self-sacrifice and this served Lieutenant Colonel Hultz well over his time in the Corps. Commitment was essential to his Marine Corps service, a value which was also learned through fellow Missourians and Christian beliefs. Working for Glen Turner as a teenager brought this all together. Don would like to thank everyone for all the support through prayers, letters, and care packages over the last 32 years, they truly made a difference. Don received a Master’s degree with honors last year. He lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with his wife Kyong. His daughter Sarah is a fellow at the University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque. He has a grandson named James who will be two years old in May and he is definitely fun.

Gardeners meet April 8 The Monroe County Gardeners met at the Paris Library, on Monday, April 8 at 7 p.m. Nancy Crain conducted business meeting. Plans were made to work on the flow bed at the fairgrounds April 15 and 16, at 10 a.m. Lynda Blades has several programs planned. Lynda read several poems, Seed Order Catalog and Mail Order Lament. She then introduced the speaker for the evening.

Carla Coleman master gardener from Monroe City. Carla gave a program on the Gardens at the White House. She showed slides. It was a very informative and enjoyable. The next meeting will be May 13, at the library, with a plant exchange. Each member is to tell about the plant they brought. Diane Lett and Carol Mock will be hostess.

The Sunday, April 14, worship hour of the Perry Christian Church’s alter candles were lit by Caytlyn Provancha and Tristen Johnson. The choir sang “Gentle Shepherd”. Pastor Todd welcomed everyone and gave the call to worship. Saturday, April 20 will be Harrison’s 60th wedding anniversary celebration, at David Lewellen’s shop, (not house) starting at 5 p.m. “Great Is the Lord” was the praise hymn. Debbie Hodges announced the arrival of Annie Jo, her new granddaughter. She is the daughter of Mark, Amy and brother Austin and is beautiful. Louise Hurley is celebrating her birthday today. Her birthday was the 12th. “It is Well With My Soul” led to the morning prayer and concerns for Connie Murray, J.D.Whelan, Mae McLaughlin, Nancy Seelow, Gene Cooper and Jack Cochell (friend of Zabette Elam), Our sympathy is for the families of Russell Woodhurst and Calvin Hull. The choir’s response was “Hear Our Prayer O Lord”.

Pastor Todd issued the invitation to share the Lord’s Supper. “Amazing Grace” was sung. Elders serving were Arlen Provancha and Greg Harrison. Glenna Johnson, Anthony Elam, James Parker and Wyatt Lewellen served as deacons “Peace Like a River” was special music provided by the choir. Alisha Eisele gave the children’s moment telling them Jesus was teaching Peter to show his love as well as saying it. They need do the same for others. John 21:1-19 was read by Cheryl Vaughn for the pastor’s sermon, “Feed My Sheep”. Jesus charged Peter and six of his disciples to be more than a friend but make a commitment to share Him with others. Be His shepherd and not only pray but help the weak and nurture His children. “Softly and Tenderly” was sung as the invitation hymn. The benediction was given before singing “Yesterday. Today, Forever” to close the service.

The Evans Club met at Becky’s Restaurant for lunch recently, at 12:30 p.m., with Hostess Sandy Carter. All eight members were present. Roll call was a favorite recipe and a copy was made for each member. Blood mobile was discussed. Dues were collected for 2013. Mary Jean Shumard provided the program

with the history of Evans Club beginning in 1928 with 20 Charter Members. Members traveled by horse, pony or horse and wagon for meetings. She reviewed several years and pictures of members and different functions of the club. Enjoyed by all. Next meeting will be at the home of Nancy Crain as hostess.

“A” Is for Antique: Learning the Lingo Before you shop for antiques, it’s important to understand some terms used in the marketplace. By law, an antique is an item that’s at least 100 years old. A collectible is just about anything that people collect. The age of a collectible is not important, except if an item is labeled a vintage collectible. A vintage collectible is an item that is at least 50 years old. A reproduction is an item created to look like an original, but that has no value in the antiques world. For example, new furniture can be manufactured to resemble styles from the 18th century, like Queen Anne, Chippendale and Hepplewhite. The same is true of antique reproduction jew-

elry — the items are not old; they simply are manufactured in the style of a certain period, like the Victorian era. Depending on the quality of materials and the manufacturing process, a reproduction can be expensive, but not nearly as expensive as an original. It also may be difficult for a non-expert to distinguish between a well-manufactured reproduction and an original. You also may see or hear the term repro. Repro is not short for reproduction. Some people use the term repro to describe a new item that has been purposefully created with the intent to deceive and sell at its genuine counterpart antique price. Essentially, a repro is a fake. For example, an unscrupulous

dealer may knowingly try to sell you a repro Tiffany lamp as an original. Items from a variety of categories can be faked, including porcelains, glassware, jewelry, silver, paintings, prints, textiles, wood carvings, brass, and copper. Price guides are books filled with technical information on specific antiques, brief histories, references, short descriptions, photos, and average retail prices. The prices listed can’t take certain variables into account

— like the condition of a particular item or its popularity in a particular location (for example, an antique platform rocking chair may be more popular in one part of the country than another). Price guides can be general or specialized: some cover a broad range of antiques, from furniture to ceramics. Others specialize in items like American pottery and porcelain, Oriental decorative arts, furniture from the Arts and Crafts movement, or pressed glass. Price guides

are updated routinely. Make sure you consult the latest editions. Auction catalogs, published by auction houses, suggest how much selling price varies from asking price. Get a catalog before a sale, and ask to receive the “prices realized” list,

which details what items actually sold for. Items are worth what people are willing to pay for them. Prices can rise quickly and dramatically if bidding gets heated. For more information visit website: http://www.

“Golf is a lifetime sport,” says Paris R-II Golf Coach Jeremy Skinner. “You learn to play golf and you play for the rest of your life.” According to club members it is the place to be for good times, fun and fellowship. The club is under the direction of a Board of Directors including President Mike Umstattd, Vice-President Dan Schappe, Treasurer Adam Turner, Secretary Nancy Riechmann and members Butch Cullifer, Rick Ham-

mond and Nancy Bierly. Bob McKinney and David Willingham work the course and Jake Peak will run the pro shop during the summer. The club sponsors a members’ only tournament, the Barnett Open, in memory of Dr Barnett.

The Mark Twain Country Club is a bright spot of green heaven in Monroe County. The club, which was incorporated on Oct. 19, 1961, had 120 charter members. According to board member Nancy Bierly, there are 180 memberships available at the club. She explained that the club has a tiered membership plan including single, family and associate memberships. The club began as a nine-hole course with sand greens. Mark Twain Country Club expanded to 18 holes and added grass greens in 1992. Mark Twain Country Club is the proud home course for the Paris R-Ii Coyote and Lady Coyote golfers. It is also home this past year to 13 men’s league teams and 11 women’s league teams. “We are doing renovations to the clubhouse as the budget allows,” said Mrs. Bierly. The clubhouse is available for rent for events such as the upcoming Monroe County Farm Bureau Young Farmer’s Prom Dinner. The clubhouse features a Pro Shop stocked with golfing supplies and is the place to start to pay for green fees and cart rental.
