Madison C-3 Class of 2013 graduates 18 students before family and friends

The Madison 2013 Graduation, on Sunday, May 12, at 2 p.m., began with the prelude of “It’s Time” by Imagine Dreams. The graduates entered the gymnasium to the sweet strains of Pomp and Circumstance. Superintendent Fred Weibling welcomed the assembled graduates, friends, guests and family. The speakers, chosen by the class, were former teachers Kyle Schroer and Teresa Briscoe. “I had the great honor of teaching and coaching here at Madison,” said Schroer. “This group of graduating seniors is awesome.” “This group had the ability to turn a bad day into a great day,” added Schroer. “Today an era ends and a new one begins.” “I am not going to tell you that the road ahead will get easier – that is not true,” noted Schroer. “If you spend all your time worrying about tomorrow you will miss out on so much.” “I am incredibly honored that you asked me to speak here today and you guys are awesome!” said Schroer in closing. “Congratulations to the graduating Class of 2013.” Ms. Briscoe addressed the students admonishing them to never say the following, “I’m from Madison and I won‘t make a difference.” “You do matter!” “Everyone of you will make a

difference in your lives,” added Ms. Briscoe. “Remember the following: Sometimes we need a little nudge; don’t let obstacles get in our way; take your responsibilities seriously; stretch yourselves; and to succeed you need more than luck.” “All your small acts add up, you will make a difference.” explained Ms. Briscoe. “Congratulations and good luck in your future.” Principal Trisch Vessar and Superintendent Weibling presented the Eighth Graders with their diplomas. 8th Grade Graduates included Kaylynn Michelle Black, Maddison Abagail Breid, Timmie Tyler Chapman, Jr., Morning River Rain Clay, Billie Daleanne Cullom, Korbin Allen Dickerson, Corrie Danielle Dunkin, Kelsey Breianne Farris, David Alexander Gibler, Jacob Thomas Graves, Payton Elizabeth Greiwe, Shelby Leann Hendren, Bobby Chance Johnston, Sarah Beth Keeling, Hunter Elise Salmons, Nathaniel Dale Sims, Brienna Kathryn Staggs, Austin Michael Thornton, Isaac Taylor Wiesner, Jacob Logan Wolfe, Joshua Alen Youse.

Judge Rachel Bringer Shepherd, Presiding Judge of the Tenth Circuit, recently announced that she has appointed Nina Benoist Chasnoff as the new Chief Juvenile Officer for the Tenth Judicial Circuit, which includes Marion, Monroe and Ralls Counties. Ms. Chasnoff graduated from Saint Louis University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History. She later graduated from the Saint Louis University School of Law in 2012, where she was a Dean’s Honor Scholar and wrote for the Public Law Review. After law school, Ms. Chasnoff worked for the law firm of Lewis, Rice and Fingersh, L.C. She has relocated her home to the Tenth Circuit and began serving as Chief Juvenile Officer on April 15, Judge Shepherd hosted a formal swearing-in ceremony for Ms. Chasnoff on May 3, 2013, at the Marion County Court-

house, in Hannibal, which was attended by deputy juvenile officers, members of the Tenth Judicial Circuit Bar Association, Circuit Clerks from throughout the Circuit, and court personnel. At the ceremony, Judge Shepherd explained that the Missouri Supreme Court has recently directed all juvenile offices to have legal representation in court proceedings, and the Supreme Court has announced plans to propose a new rule prohibiting juvenile officers who are not attorneys from representing the juvenile office in juvenile court. Judge Bringer Shepherd stated, “I am grateful for the opportunity to hire an attorney to fill the position of Chief Juvenile Officer, which was vacant due to the recent retirement of Phil Livesay, and use our existing resources to comply with Missouri law at no additional cost to Marion, Monroe or Ralls Counties.” Judge Shepherd noted that several attorneys have previously served as Tenth Judicial Circuit Juvenile Officers, including the late Circuit Judge Ronald R. McKenzie, Palmyra Municipal Judge Tom Meade, the late Marion County Associate Judge John D. Ogle, and attorney Warren Wells, who is currently general counsel for Truman State University in Kirksville. The Tenth Judicial Circuit Juvenile Office provides assistance to children and families in need within Marion, Monroe, and Ralls Counties. Judge Shepherd said, “I appreciate Nina’s enthusiasm, diligence, and desire to assist the Tenth Circuit Juvenile Office in serving the children and families of the Tenth Judicial Circuit.”

From the desk of the Editor

Thank You Mom!


Graduation... It is a time of pride, pride in our future; and it is a time of tears; tears of good byes and for our fledglings leaving the nest and flying on their own. Graduation is a time to reflect on history and to look forward to the history yet to be written. As the schools of Paris and Madison ready their graduates and Paris, Madison, Holliday and Middle Grove ready for promotion - all eyes are upon the students. A bond has formed between these students who have spent their time together in the hallways of learning. Now these friends look toward a future possibly apart from those who have shared almost every second since kindergarten. It is a time of looking inside and searching for the vision of maybe just the immediate future not even the long range plan for the rest of their lives. To our graduates - good luck in your future. May you live out all your goals and may all your future endeavors be successful. You are our future. Take the tools for life you have learned here in Monroe County schools and teach them to the world. It will be a better place to live because of each and everyone of you. To our eighth graders moving on to high school look towards those who have been successful and if possible for you - emulate their successes as they have blazed the way. To the Class of 2013 and the Class of 2017, in the words of a former Paris R-II valediction, “try everything sports, clubs, classes and activities.” Sooner or later you will find that niche that will help guide you into your future. You may not find it in your next step or even the


next, but find it you will. To the local community - thank you. Thank you for always being there to help these young adults mature and grow. Thank you to the many mentors like Chuck Brazeale and Richard Fredrick who take the time, when asked, to help our young adults with anything presented. Thank you to leaders such as Dea Nobis and Erin Gruber who champion our sports programs and lead the all important sports booster club to the betterment of our students. Thank you to our administrators - Scott Salmons, Carol Hall, Fred Weibling and Chris Johnson for their leadership. Thank you to our principals for your guidance and direction. Thank you to our teachers and support staff! You are the ones in the trenches day in and day out that help make that difference. The students may not recognize that difference today or tomorrow but they eventually will and will look back and say it all began with my teachers... Last but not least in any stretch of the imagination, thank you to the families of these dynamic young men and women. It was your guidance, love and support that molded them into those graduates and eighth graders facing us today. Good luck!!! Have a great week...


Trivial Pursuit in Jefferson City

As the Missouri legislature approaches its statutory conclusion on May 17, there will not be a long list of significant legislation passed. There may yet be action on a needed revision of the state’s criminal code, but it is a long shot at this point. You would think that our Representatives and Senators, especially with a veto proof majority of Republicans in charge, would come up with a long list of important legislation this year. Instead, much of the time spent in Jefferson City focused on prevention of state and local officials from doing their normal jobs or from passing ordinances that various state lawmakers did not agree with or support. When St. Louis and St. Louis County passed laws to give homeowners in their areas about to be foreclosed a way to mediate and have a chance to keep their properties, the legislative response on behalf of the poor banks and savings and loan lenders was to offer laws that prevented cities and counties from passing such laws and ordinances. Then the legislature passed the really important law that now prevents Missouri courts from using foreign laws that violate either the state or U.S. Constitution. DUH. And

who would decide if they did violate either constitution? You guessed it, the courts. Other state laws were offered to prevent law enforcement or other state officials from cooperating with Federal law or executive orders that don’t agree with legislative leader’s political views, more than one of these attempts will not comply with the Supremacy Clause which favors federal over state laws and the sponsors know this but offer unconstitutional bills anyway. One of my favorites is the recent passage of SB265 which bar state or local officials from adopting any policies of “Agenda 21”, a non binding United Nations agreement signed by most countries which encourages environmentally sound development around the world. This was signed in the early 90’s and now there is concern by sponsor Lyle Rowland of Cedarcreek that it may adversely affect property rights in Cedarcreek and elsewhere. We could just either secede from the United States and be done with it or go back to naming Missouri’s official gnat or flea and waste our legislative sessions that way. RJF

(I had a wonderful Mother’s Day and I hope everyone else did also. I did find myself shedding tears here and there thinking about my mom and how much I missed her. I wanted to share an article from my book that she enjoyed. She was the inspiration behind it.) I do not think it is possible to write down all the things we are thankful for when it comes to our mothers. Even if we try and list all of them we are more than likely going to forget some. And the older we are the longer the list is. When we are younger we might appreciate a small fraction of what our mothers do for us but it is not until we are older that we really understand all the unconditional love they gave and all the sacrifices they made. I had a huge revelation about the deep love my mom had for me after I started having children of my own. I can remember calling her numerous times telling her how sorry I was for not appreciating her when I


was younger. And for all the times as a teenager when I had an attitude with her for no reason. No matter what my mom did or said I was irritated with her. Do you know I even got mad at her when she would come into my room in the morning and say with the happiest, most cheerful voice that it was time to get up?(Of course it was during my teenage years.) Thank God our moms hung in there and even loved us (might not have liked us but loved us) through those years. So, to all the moms out there who have hung in there through thick and thin, here is a list of some of the things we are thankful for: *Every dirty diaper you changed *Every sleepless night you endured *Every temper tantrum you rode out

As Time Goes By

All yesteryears are reprinted in the exact text of the original issue

90 Years Ago May 18, 1923 Want Better Streets: There is a growing sentiment for a reform of Paris streets and for the elimination of at least two-thirds of our hurdle crossings. The money spent for oil each year would pay a good part of the interest on what money it may be necessary to raise for permanent streets. Practically all of our patrons come to town in motor cars. They complain, and with just cause, of the discomfort to themselves and families and the injury to their machines when they leave the smooth country roads and begin bumping the bumps on our streets. It is a matter that should receive serious consideration at the nest council meeting. Paris to Have New Doctor: Dr. J.C. Flints, of Molino, has rented Mrs. Mary Hardwick’s residence and will move to Paris about June 11. He will be associated with Dr. H.C. Payne in general practice. Club to Open May 25: The Paris Country Club will be officially opened on the evening of Friday, May 25, with an elaborate program and possibly a dance following. The tennis courts and croquet grounds are now in shape and other improvements for the grounds are being planned for this season. Entertainment may possibly be given at regular intervals throughout the summer and fall. 75 Years Ago May 19, 1938 Big Drop in Eggs: The biggest drop in eggs of recent years occurred last Friday afternoon when a

Noel Produce Company truck driven by James White overturned at the Russell Davis corner a block south of the schoolhouse. Two hundred and forty-three dozen eggs were crushed in the crash, the highway being covered with crushed shells and their recent contents. Forty-five pounds of butterfat also was lost. The truck was only slightly damaged, although it had plunged with great force into the deep ditch along the west side of Highways 24 and 15 at that point. The driver escaped unhurt. The mishap, it seems, was cause by White’s effort to avoid a collision with a car which drove up on the highway just as he came along. Virginia’s School Record: Miss Virginia Fern Hawkins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Hawkins, has just completed her tenth year of school without being absent or tardy during the entire time. Of the ten years she went eight of them to a country school near Goss, one year of high school in Paris, the second year of high school was in Holliday. While living in Goss, Miss Hawkins attended Paris High School making the trip in a car, a distance of five miles. Miss Hawkins states her past experience in school life has been very successful and she is hoping the next two years will be equally as kind to her. 50 Years Ago May 16, 1963 Miss Carr Crowned GA Queen Sunday Evening: Miss Charlotte Carr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Carr, of Paris was crowned a Queen in the Girls Aux-

Also destroyed was Martin’s farm tractor wants some miscellaneous machinery, but no feed. Martin was unaware of the fire, he told the Appeal, until some boys driving along Highway 15 west of his place saw the blaze, went to his home and aroused him.

Twellman has been working for the district since July 1, 1981 and says he is now unemployed and looking into other possibilities.

MoDOT crews will begin mowing roadsides across Northeast Missouri and many places all over the state. The goal is to complete the mowing of all state roads to provide good visibility at intersections and a pleasant though not manicured appearance, weather and ground conditions permitting. Here’s the mowing plan for the Northeast District: Drivers will see tractors and protective “follow” trucks mowing along busy freeways and expressways. Mowing operation will then move to rural two-lane roads in the 17-county Northeast area with tractors and protective “follow” trucks. State routes on highways and streets through cities, smaller towns and suburban areas also will be mowed. Tractors and “follow” trucks will be on the road Monday through Thursday and some Fridays each week throughout the summer. In most areas, tractors will make one pass, making cuts of six feet to 15 feet wide, depending on terrain and obstructions. Between mowing cycles, motorists who see grass and weeds blocking visibility at road or street intersections along state roads should call MoDOT, and workers will respond and cut away the visual obstruction. For more information contact MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK MoDOT (275-6636).

Her experience as teacher at Ridgeway set her apart. She is specifically experienced with Ridgeway’s unique method of teaching known as individually guided education, or IGE, which focuses on teaching students as they progress at their own level instead of following a strict grade-by-grade curriculum. Board President Grant Scott stated, “We felt absolutely nobody else could come in with her expertise on the IGE philosophy and provide proper leadership for the school”. Shari stated that after her years at Ridgeway, “I like the families, I like the atmosphere, and I like the style of teaching we do. I am looking forward to working with each and every child, parent, and staff member.” One of her goals includes making sure staff members have a better understanding of individually guided teaching. Shari is the wife of Ewell Lawson and their children are Joe and Katie Lawson. She is the daughter of Ann Laurenson and the late Robert Laurenson, and daughter-in-law of Floyd and Dian Lawson.

Saturday, May 25 is designated as National Missing Children Day

Every year on May 25, Missourians are asked to remember the children who stare back from the posters of the missing. These are the faces of children who have been stolen from their families, run away from their families, or have been abandoned by their families. Regardless of the reason, these missing youth are in danger every day. It is the goal of National Missing Children’s Day to bring public attention to the growing problem of missing children. President Ronald Reagan first proclaimed National Missing Children’s Day on May 25, 1983. It now serves as an annual reminder to Missouri and the nation that everyone can play a part in bring-

ing a missing child home, and in preventing the occurrence of future missing children. All Missouri citizens are encouraged to drive with their headlights on throughout the day on May 25, to “light the way home” for our missing youth. The wearing of a white ribbon also symbolizes the continued fight to return children safely home. In 2012, 5,561 children were reported missing to Missouri law enforcement agencies. These missing reports included runaways, family abductions, and non-family abductions. At the end of 2012, 91 of these children were still missing. Thus far in 2013, there have been 1,966 children reported missing, 1,787 of which

have been located. The Missouri Missing Persons Clearinghouse reminds all parents and guardians to talk to children about child safety issues as a pro-active approach to curbing child abduction. In the same manner as reminding children to look both ways before crossing the street, children should be reminded often to follow these safety rules: CHECK FIRST: Check first with a trusted adult before going anywhere or accepting anything from anyone. TAKE A BUDDY: Never go alone; always take a friend. If a child MUST go somewhere alone, remind them to call before leaving, stay on a protected path, and check in upon arrival. SAY NO: Know that it is OK to say, “NO!” Teach children to tell a trusted adult if something makes them scared or uncomwill begin at 5 p.m., the fortable.

Gary Noel Retirement Dinner Set for June 1 Gary Noel, District Conservationist, is retiring after 34 years with Natural Resource Conservation Services, (NRCS). His fellow workers and friends will honor Mr. Noel with an evening meal and reception June 1, at the New London Lions’ Club Den. The social

children grow quickly and change a lot, the information should be updated at least once a year. The Patrol’s Missing Persons Clearinghouse has a Child ID System, which can be taken to schools, health and safety fairs, and civic meetings upon request to make free, wallet-sized child ID cards for parents. Two critical tools in the fight against missing children are the Amber Alert Program and the Missouri Endangered Persons Advisory. The mission of the Amber Alert Program is to develop and coordinate the efforts of law enforcement, the media, and transportation in order to increase public participation in safely recovering abducted children through targeted education, increased communication, and effective sharing of resources. In 2012, two statewide Amber Alerts were issued for six missing children, and all six of those children were recovered safely. The Missouri Endangered Persons Advisory was established in 2007, to protect missing persons who might not fall under the strict criteria established by the Amber Alert Plan. For more information on child safety and Amber Alerts, or if you would like a child ID presentation at your local event, please contact the Missing Persons Clearinghouse at (573) 526-6178, or online at

When Someone Else Drives Your Car By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent Your babysitter uses your car to drive your kids to the swimming pool. Your brother-in-law borrows your car for the weekend. You’ve given them your permission—but what happens if there’s an accident when someone else is behind the wheel of your car? “Generally it’s not a problem if they’re driving with your consent,” says Jeanne Salvatore, senior vice president of Public Affairs and consumer spokesperson for the Insurance Information Institute. “If it’s an occasional use—say I borrow your car to go pick up milk—and as long as permission has been verbally granted, you’ll typically be covered.” But borrowing a car under other circumstances, such as in these examples, may not be as clear-cut. (Coverage will depend on your insurer and your particular policy.) If someone drives your vehicle to perform a job, such as making deliveries or hauling materials, and has an accident, that claim may not be covered because the car was being used for business. If your adult child doesn’t live with you anymore and you’ve lent him or her your car as a primary transportation, you may not be fully covered if your child hasn’t been named the primary driver on your policy. Typically, even if the person driving your car has his or her own insurance, your insurance will likely pay damages first if there’s an accident. The driver’s insurance may cover some of the personal injury or medical expenses, and it may supplement your plan if the accident maxes out your coverage. “When you have someone you employ, such as a nanny or a nurse who will be a regular driver, contact your insurance agent about your coverage,” Salvatore recommends. “He or she may need to be added to your policy.” Because the policy terms and state laws can vary widely, always contact your insurance agent before loaning out your car—or any other motor vehicle, such as a motorcycle, boat, jet ski, snowmobile, ATV or RV. “Any time you have a question about your coverage, call your insurance agent first,” says Salvatore. “You always want to let the insurance company know the circumstances. Get their advice.” “Don’t be cavalier about lending your car,” adds Salvatore. “If you know someone isn’t a good driver, think twice about giving your permission. Any accident they’re in could go on your insurance record.” Contact your State Farm® agent to learn more about your auto coverage. This article contains only a general description of coverages and is not a contract. Details of coverage or limits vary in some states. All coverages are subject to the terms, provisions, exclusions, and conditions in the policy itself and in any endorsements

If you believe the gospel it will deliver you. You are saved from the past and the penalty of the past; saved from

the power of sin, in the present; and saved from the presence of sin in the future. This is good news (gospel)! You can “live” victoriously in every situation in your life by faith. “Live” –means to breathe, to be nourished, preserved, restored; to recover, maintain, persist, and endure. Galatians 2:20-21: Your fleshly nature is crucified daily and the life you presently live is lived by faith. Galatians 3:6-11: Because he believed God, Abraham’s faith alone made him righteous, not any works he did. In verse 7-if we have faith we are the children of God. You are either a child of God or a child of the devil-Genesis 3:15. Acts 16:16-40: Verse 25 – people who live by faith in God, praise God in every situation.

On Mother’s Day, the congregation of Holliday Christian Church gathered for worship and welcomed special guests – numerous family members of Gene and Sandy Carter, Phil and Sally Blakemore and Pete and Margaret Olney. Following the prelude by Jane Akers, organist, all were welcomed by Reverend David Holmes. To honor the ladies, each was presented with a geranium.

Happy 37th anniversary wishes were for David and Lysa Holmes. The opening hymn, “Faith of Our Mothers”, was followed by pastoral prayer and “Gloria Patri”. Prayer concerns were expressed for: Becky Dunlap, Mike Mallory, Susan Duncan, Beverly Wandrey and Bob Wisner. Sympathy was extended to Vic Hultz and his family upon the death of his brother, Martin. Berna Kotsenburg shared the joy of a beautiful wedding for Ashlyn Whelan and Brian Vaughn. “Something for Thee” was the prayer hymn sung; moments of meditation followed as a final verse was played. Pastoral prayer and unison recital of the Lord’s Prayer followed.

The communion hymn, “This Do In Remembrance of Me”, was sung as elders, Jerry Ragsdale and Phil Blakemore, went forward to serve at the Lord’s Table. Serving as deacons were: Mike McLaughlin and Nellis Kotsenburg. After sharing of communion and collection of offering, pastoral prayer and the doxology closed the communion service. Reverend Holmes’ message on this Mother’s Day was fittingly “A Tribute to Mothers”.

Survivor Luncheon Monroe County Circuit Monroe County scheduled for June 2 Court News Commission News

u See SURVIVOR LUNCH on page 1A June 22 and Sunday, June 23. Watch for information about upcoming fundraisers prior to the relay itself. Also coming up soon is the memorable Survivor Reception! The Relay For Life of Monroe County Survivor Reception will be held Sunday, June 2, at the Paris Library. The luncheon will begin at 12:30 p.m. The Relay For Life of Monroe County Organizing Committee would like to have ALL cancer survivors of Monroe County attend and bring a family member or friend with them to the always-popular meal and fellowship event. “Let us celebrate your courage and strength together,” said Relay Committee Member Ali Rentschler. For more information call 660-6765441. According to the American Cancer Society - one person can make a difference. Nowhere is that more evident than with the story of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, which began in Tacoma, Wash. In the mid-1980s, Dr. Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma colorectal surgeon, wanted to enhance the income of his local American Cancer Society office and to show support for all of his patients who had battled cancer. He decided to personally raise money for the

fight by doing something he enjoyed – running marathons. In May 1985, Dr. Klatt spent a grueling 24 hours circling the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma. He ran for more than 83 miles. That first year, nearly 300 of Dr. Klatt’s friends, family, and patients watched as he ran and walked the course. Throughout the night, friends donated $25 to run or walk with Dr. Klatt for 30 minutes. His efforts raised $27,000 to fight cancer. While circling the track those 24 hours, Dr. Klatt thought about how others could take part in his mission to fight cancer. He envisioned a 24hour team relay event that could raise more money to fight cancer. Over the next few months, he pulled together a small committee to plan the first team relay event, known as the City of Destiny Classic 24-Hour Run Against Cancer. In 1986, with the help of Pat Flynn – now known as the “Mother of Relay” – 19 teams took part in the first team Relay event on the track at the historic Stadium Bowl and raised $33,000. An indescribable spirit prevailed at the track and in the tents that dotted the infield.

Who Directs Our Children’s Education?

The Federal Government has by-passed the Missouri legislature as well as parents and tax payers and has coerced the states to common standards for our public schools, sight un-seen. The Common Core Standards have been advertised as voluntary and state-led. This is a myth. This can be described as an initiative to adopt a common set of academic standards for all states in the Country. A standard is a goal or guideline for students to achieve certain benchmarks for a given grade level. “Race To the Top” required states to commit to these standards by Aug. 2, 2009. Grant money would be denied if a state did not make this commitment. Phase I applications were started in November 2009 with a due date of Jan. 9, 2010. The first draft was not released until March of 2010. The states did not have an opportunity to review the program. The claim that the program was state led is a falsehood. Furthermore, the application stipulates that states must accept these standards word for word. Teachers can add up to 15% but cannot take anything away. Any local control over what will be taught will now be taken over by the Federal Government. There are currently two bills being considered by Missouri House and Senate. House bill 616 completely rejects these standards and has passed the house. The Senate bill, SB210, requires cost estimates and data accountability. The source for this article can be checked at Missouri Coalition Against Common Core and the bills can be read at both Missouri House and Senate websites. Read next week’s article about how Common Core was adopted and who started the process.

Obituaries ✝



Margaret Arnold Swearengen, of Monroe City, died May 3, in Memphis, Tenn., shy of her 100th birthday. Swearengen was born in 1913, Woodrow Wilson was president, World War I had not started yet, and the first four-engine airplane was successfully piloted. She was the daughter of Claude and Elizabeth Arnold Henderson of Monroe City. Claude Henderson was the co-founder and President of Henderson Produce Company in Monroe City. She married her lifelong love and childhood sweetheart Mark Twain Swearengen in 1935. They had two children, Betty Louis Swearengen Sheppard of Memphis, Tenn. and retired Major Mark Swearengen of Chester, Va. In 2007, the Swearengens celebrated their 72nd anniversary, the couple rarely spent time apart. A favorite family story tells the tale of the day that she went shopping with her daughter and granddaugh-

ter. She called home to check on him, he reported back that he was “moping around the dinette,” pining for her return. Another story tells of a track meet in which Mr. Swearengen was focused so intently on Mrs. Swearengen that he missed the turn to receive the baton causing the team to forfeit the race. Following the sudden death of Claude Henderson, Mark Swearengen became manager and president of Henderson Produce Company in 1945. With Margaret as his co-pilot Mark guided the company through many innovations, especially the technology of drying eggs. The innovated process made eggs readily available for use without refrigeration. Eggs could now be easily shipped anywhere in the world. Dried eggs from Henderson Produce Company were sent during World War II to the front lines of combat and to Allied communities in Europe. For contributions to the war effort, the Henderson Produce Company received the Army-Navy “E” Award for 1943, 1944, 1945 and 1946. The first “E” award was a proud moment for Henderson Produce and all company employees who worked so tirelessly during wartime. After World War II Henderson Produce expanded to accommodate cake mixes, baking products and albumen, a byproduct of the egg drying process. Henderson Produce also added a new

process for the eviscerating and freezing of poultry for sale and shipment to markets around the world. To accommodate the new processes, enlargement of facilities and the building of new ones on both sides of Winter Street. One new building was especially designed for the sale of poultry feeds and products developed by the company and marketed under the brand name, Uwanta. Henderson Produce’s activities included the brokering of live poultry, processing of liquid eggs, dried whole eggs, yolks, whites, and the marketing of Uwanta agricultural products. In 1962 the company was sold to Seymour Foods, Inc. of Topeka, Kan. Swearengen attended Stephens College in Columbia and graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Education. She taught kindergarten in Monroe City when it was privately operated by the Mothers Club. She served on the Monroe City Board of Education for many years, among the first women to serve on the board. She was honored as an 80-year member of PEO, Chapter H, she held many chapter offices including president. Swearengen was well known and admired in Monroe City. She was an active member of the Monroe City Christian Church and she often hosted her bridge club in her home. The Swearengens were members of the Hannibal Country Club

where friends surrounded them. Among her family she was nicknamed “Little M.A.” the name reflected her small stature and commanding presense. She knew what she liked and what she did not stating, “Well, somebody’s got to be the chief: I am.” She is survived by two children, Mark Arnold (Gertrud) Swearengen, of Chesterfield, Va., and Elizabeth (Betty Louis) Sheppard, of Memphis, Tenn.; six grandchildren and their spouses, Anita Elizabeth Swearengen, of Breckenridge, Colo.; Suzanne Marina (Shawn Morgan) Swearengen, of Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Elizabeth Sheppard (Mark) Hurley of New York and Chicago; Eleanor Sheppard (Bill) Wilson, of St. Louis; Margaret Sheppard (Ed) Apple, of Memphis, Tenn. and Lee Calvin (Jessica) Sheppard III, of Memphis, Tenn.; and six great grandchildren, Elizabeth Henderson Apple, Edward Lee Apple, III, Walter Emmett Sheppard and Eleanor Margaret Sheppard of Memphis, Tenn. and Mark MacMillan Wilson and Samuel Louis Wilson, of St. Louis. A memorial service was held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 11, at the Monroe City Christian Church. The Rev. Steve Goughnour officiated. A family burial service at St. Jude’s Cemetery preceded the memorial service. The Garner Funeral Home and Chapel were in charge of arrangements.
