The Red Cross recommends: • getting a good night’s sleep. • eating a good breakfast or lunch. • drinking extra water and fluids to help replace the volume you will donate. • avoiding caffeinated beverages. • eating iron-rich foods to boost your iron level. “Donating blood is an easy way to help others and only takes about an hour of your time,” said Scott Caswell, CEO of the Red Cross Missouri-Illinois Blood Services Region. “The

From the desk of the Editor

Too Fast, Too Soon


The Year is Half Over! Unbelievably, 2013 is half over. I cannot believe that the summer is here, the Monroe County Fair and Old Threshers is just around the corner and before you know it - we will be publishing our yearly Back To School issue. Before all that though... How are you doing on your New Year’s Resolutions? Did you know the Top 10 resolutions for the year? They are in order form top to bottom (1-10), Lose Weight; Getting Organized; Spend Less, Save More; Enjoy Life to the Fullest; Staying Fit and Healthy; Learn Something Exciting; Quit Smoking (congratulations to those who have succeeded with this resolution); Help Others in Their Dreams; Fall in Love; and Spend More Time with Family. If you have broken all yours and want to make some Mid Year Resolutions I have some suggestions that were not on the Top 10 list. I resolve: By the end of the year to attend at least two local government, school board or organizational meetings to get a better handle on the area’s heartbeat. I resolve: To participate in an fundraising event hosted by one of the county’s active groups. This will help give you a perspective of what people are actively trying to better either their cause or increase awareness for some orga-


nization or another. I resolve: To be involved! The best way to know what is happening is to be actually active in what is going on. I resolve: To be informed! Another way to keep your finger on the pulse of the county is to be and keep informed. I resolve: To buy locally! As we have discussed before you do not have to spend 100 percent of your purchasing dollar in Paris or the local area. Even just purchasing five items locally can help grow the tax base and allow the city to improve he infrastructure. I resolve: To make my town a better place to live! Each and every one of us can do this by just participating in a couple of these resolutions. An avalanche can begin with a small snowball and so we can create the same situation with support, cooperation and respect for each other and all our local residents. Good luck on the second half of your year! Have a great week!


A Cautious Trade of Privacy For Security Some time has now passed since we learned that our government is compiling a detailed log of private telephone calls of millions of US citizens. The authority for the collection is from the Patriot Act, that Bush-era anti-terrorism law that the present administration has apparently embraced as well. The data collected by the National Security Agency under the act as revealed by a secret order of the Foreign Intelligence Security Court to Verizon includes daily call detail records created by Verizon for communications between the US and aboard and calls wholly within the US, including local calls. The specific details are the phone numbers of both parties, their physical location, time and durations of the calls and any other identifying information. The Obama Administration has defended this secret collection of information as a “critical tool in protection our nation from terrorist threats.” There has been a useful national debate on the proper priority between privacy rights under the Constitution and National Security benefits of this surveillance by the government. Recent polls show that a majority of Americans are presently willing to give up some privacy for security. In addition, most Congressional leaders of both parties

have offered support for the collection of the data. The prudent approach would clearly be to acknowledge that there is no present evidence that the government has abused it legal authority nor the privacy of any individual has proven to have been violated but if our government can’t protect its own classified secrets from the like of an Edward Snowden, how can we rely on it to protect ours? Or is there not a way to access all this data on suspects or groups of suspects without collecting data on all Americans and still satisfy security goals? With data on all Americans now being used only for finding suspected terrorists, could it not be subject to so called mission creep in the future resulting in its use to track and punish political enemies, activists or whistle blowers? And when and if the terrorist threat is no longer a problem for us, will this data be discarded or turned to other non security uses? Like most Americans I am willing to trade a little privacy for the prospect of improved security for my kids and theirs. But I want those same kids to be able to know how this information, and by whom this information is used in the future. RJF

I am amazed at how young some children are consuming themselves with the opposite sex these days. I’m not sure if there is even a cootie stage like there was when we were growing up. You now that period when boys were gross and you didn’t want them to touch you because they gave you cooties and vice versa. Sure we knew most of the time when a boy or girl was giving a fellow classmate a hard time it was because they liked them but things were so much different. A third grader liking another third grader consisted of sending a note that simply said ‘Do you like me?’ and then it had a yes and no and asked the person to circle which one was true. Or the person would have their friend go and ask if they liked them. Then if the both agreed they liked each other, they were considered boyfriend and girlfriend. The best part about it was nothing would really change. It was like they were girlfriend and boyfriend in name only. Sometimes, the socalled boyfriend and girl-


friend would not even talk to each other. They might smile at one another or the girl would wave and giggle but that was the extent of it. They wouldn’t hang out at recess and they definitely didn’t speak on the phone to one another. Way back in the dark ages when I was growing up we only had land lines and they weren’t our private lines to talk to everyone and anyone whenever we wanted to. We had to share them with the whole family. We weren’t allowed to tie up the line talking and I know in the third grade I was still going to my friend’s house knocking on the door asking them if they wanted to play. I hardly ever used the phone. So again, when I say boyfriend and girlfriend in name only, I mean boyfriend and girlfriend in name only. I thank God it was like that when I was growing

As Time Goes By

All yesteryears are reprinted in the exact text of the original issue 90 Years Ago June 23, 1923 Three farmers get medals: J.A. Rouse, Paris, T.E. Bierly, Shelbina, and A.J. Carter, Paris, all of whom are Monroe County farmers, were awarded medals won in the Missouri Colt Production Contest at a meeting at the Court House in Paris Friday night. To win one of these medals, it was necessary for each man to own a colt that gained at least 600 pounds during its first year. It was required that feed records be kept on each colt. Only colts sired by pure bred stallions were eligible for the contest. T.A. Ewing and E,S. Matteson, both of the Animal Husbandry Department of the College of Agriculture, were present at the meeting. Will Hold A Three Night Horse Show: The Fair Board, meeting Monday evening, decided to hold a three night horse show this year instead of the regular day and night fair, the dates to be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, August 16, 17, and 18. Prizes will be offered in saddle and harness horses, draft horses and mules. A class will also be provided for fat calves. The premium list is to be limited to $1,000.00. Races, floral hall and agricultural exhibits, and all day shows were eliminated, due to lack of attendance and interest last year. 75 Years Ago June 16, 1938 A Real Bee Tree: A bee tree of unusual interest in the southeast corner of the courthouse yard

at Paris was revealed by Tuesday night’s windstorm. On Tuesday afternoon the bees “swarmed” and Judge Hurd “hived” about three gallons of them. That night a huge section of the tree was split from the trunk by a high wind. It contained another swarm or colony of bees and enough honeycomb to fill a two-bushel basket. $18,109 For School Campus: A telegram from Congressman Cannon to Mayor Guy Reed, Wednesday, stated that Washington authorities were ready to set aside $18,109 for additional work on the school campus at Paris. They Are Coming: People from every Monroe County community are coming to the music festival that will be held at the fairgrounds in Paris the afternoon of Sunday, June 26. One hundred musicians from Shelbina and Paris will participate in the band program. In some of the numbers these two bands will be consolidated into one, making the largest band ever seen in Monroe County. Under the leadership of a great vocal artist, Mrs. Charles Hummell, a county sing will be undertaken, in which everybody will be asked to join in the rendition or several familiar old songs. All who attend will be asked to pay at least 10c at the gate, the money to be used for hospital treatment for crippled children in Monroe and Shelby Counties. 50 Years Ago June 20, 1963 First Wheat to Paris

having fun and learning about God because he was upset about some little girl who broke it off with him. I’m sorry but I think that is ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous and then to top it off he was yelling and being rude to people who were trying to see if he was okay because they saw him walking around crying all afternoon. Clearly he is not ready to be in any type of girlfriend/boyfriend relationship. I mean my goodness, he hasn’t even hit double digits! My opinion may be considered old fashioned but sometimes the old way is the wise way. I know we can not shelter our children from everything and they need to be able to grow but we also need to make sure they are not doing it prematurely. I know it is hard being a parent and in my opinion it gets harder as they get older. I just want us as parents to be aware and keep our eyes open. I want us to take some time and sit down with our children and see what is going on in their world and then do some inventory on what we have allowed into their lives that maybe we should not have and then make the necessary changes. They might not like it but we have been given the job of protecting them until they are able to protect themselves.

up. I do not think young children need to worry about the ups and downs of relationships at such a young age. Children need to be children. Now there is nothing wrong with a kid saying so and so is their girlfriend but nothing really comes of it or when a girl has a crush on a boy. All of that is natural and part of growing up. The problem comes in when our children have seen, heard and been exposed to things too mature for their age so when they do like a person of the opposite sex it takes on another form. And let’s face it, the children of this generation have seen and heard A LOT more and at a lot earlier age than most of us did. Let me give you an example by sharing with you a conversation I had with my nine year old son. He was at an after school program and one of his peers was crying. My son asked him what was wrong and if he was okay. They boy told him “shut up”. My son said he didn’t know why he was being so mean when he was just trying to see if he was okay. He found out that the boy was yelling at anyone who asked him what was wrong and that he was upset because his girlfriend broke up with him. How sad is that? He wasted a good afternoon hanging out with peers,

Market: The Monroe County wheat harvest started this week, with only a few loads coming in and the bulk of the harvest not expected for a week or ten days. First to come to Paris was a load of soft wheat from Lewis Wilson Jr., on Monday, at the M.F.A. Elevator, and a load of hard from Harold Tonsor to Paris Elevator on Tuesday. The latter tested 61 and 14.7% moisture. Tonsor thought it would make around 30 bushels per acre. At Paris Wednesday top soft wheat was quoted at $1.75, top hard wheat at $1.88, which is two cents higher than the quotation of a week ago.

met Monday, June 10, at Grandma’s Country Music building. It was noted that plans are taking shape to have the schoolhouse open twice a month for viewing and seeing memorabilia of Florida. Friends use their funds to promote Florida and it’s heritage. It was organized in 1965. Right now the school needs painting, a basement door and a ramp. With donations they were able to update the electricity at the school. It was noted they used to have a festival the second weekend of August sponsored by the Corps of Engineers, DNR and F.O.F. They had good attendance; one year – 13,000 were in attendance. Cuts in funding cost the Corps the ability to help. Then the same thing happened with DNR and Florida was on their own in 2010. They planned an event in May, which is the month in 1831 that Florida was founded. The event was around the

coach Inn and the cabin was open, which had poor attendance. The next year they went back to the square and also the same thing at the school and then a baked food sale at the Stagecoach Inn. In order to have an event on the DNR Square where the generic cabin is located, they have to have $1,000,000 liability insurance, which is costly. People seem to forget Florida and it’s heritage. Every weekend when they have gone to Florida there is lots of traffic asking about the cabin, the Stagecoach Inn and the school. The last two years DNR have had a festival at the Shrine ground and FOF has had a baked food sale. This is a very nice place for a festival. Last year, 2012, FOF had their event in May at the cabin square and had poor attendances. After lots of discussion they voted to have Florida Homecoming at the school where people can bring memorabilia to be scanned and put in the school. This Homecoming will coincide with DNR’s festival to be held on Saturday, Aug. 31, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. FOF feels more people will attend and will bring parties closer to promote Florida.

Few things are as exhilarating as summertime water sports. But whether you’re operating a personal watercraft (PWC) or being towed behind one, make safety your number one priority with these suggestions. All-Around Safety Rules for Water Sports Participate in a water or boater safety course. Wear a Coast Guard–approved life jacket. Always let someone know where you’re going before you head out. Boat only during fair weather. Don’t participate in high-speed sports in low-light or after dark. Water Skiing Safety Inspect your equipment. If you aren’t familiar with the body of water, ask someone who is about areas to avoid. Avoid skiing in shallow water or on small or busy lakes. Review hand signals. Typically, an extended right or left hand indicates the direction to turn, a thumbs up or down directs drivers to adjust speed and a raised palm means stop. Make sure a spotter is on board with the driver. Release the towrope as soon as you fall. When you’re down, hold up a ski to make yourself visible. Don’t approach or board the boat until the engine is off. Jet Skiing Safety Keep the ignition safety switch lanyard on your wrist or hooked to your life jacket. This cuts power to the engine if you fall off. Be sure you meet your state’s minimum operating age and education requirements. Follow basic boating rules and practice proper boating etiquette. Before leaving, check the PWC to be sure it’s in working order and that you have the necessary equipment on board. Avoid dangerous maneuvers like using another watercraft’s wake as a ramp. When pulling a person, your PWC should be able to seat you, a spotter and the person being towed. Keep your feet inside the PWC, and maintain a firm grip on the handlebars or the strap on a 3-seat jet ski. Ride defensively. Scan for boats and objects in your path, and drive at responsible speeds. Remember, most PWCs don’t have a braking system, and you’ll lose steering capability when the power is off. Learn more about personal watercraft safety from the Personal Watercraft Industry Association. And contact your State Farm® Agent to make sure your watercraft is properly insured.

Today our Father’s Day message was brought by Joni Sharp. The title of her message was “The Authority of the Father.” Scripture was taken from 1Timothy 5:8, Proverbs 22:6 Deuteronomy 6: 5-9 and Matthew 6:33. What happens in your home is what your children will be. Men need to be the spiritual leader of their household, not only setting the example for their wives to follow, but their children as well. Resisting the enemy, teach your kids how to worship God, and follow God’s plan by making Him the center of your life first. Prayers for Keith Woodhurst, Dawn and Mark O’Brien, Carol Hagen’s mother, Samantha (Wilkerson) Davis, Linda Griffin, Lloyd Crigler, Linda Thomas, Zack Baker, Joyce Lewis, Jill Thomas, Jerry Doty, Bonnie Sudsberry, Ethel Thomas, traveling mercies for Kathy Laird’s grandchildren and Jo Reynolds and Lexi Dunham. Praises for Lee and Ali Rentschler celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary, Keith Woodhurst’s 25th birthday today, Bev Holmes healing, Kathy Laird’s granddaughters with her today, and Ben and Kacy Bell and their girls being with us today including their two newest arrivals, twins Makenna and Maleah.

All the men in the congregation were given a visor clip with the words, “Man of God”. A special prayer and recognition for the men was given by Wesley Hammond. Reverend Wesley Hammond’s sermon was from Hebrews 11:17-19, entitled “Abraham: A Father of Faith”. God wanted to make a great nation through Abraham even though he and Sarah were relatively unknown and they were in their nineties. God miraculously took a barren woman and blessed them with a son, Isaac. Again, Abraham had to demonstrate faith and obedience when God asked him to sacrifice Isaac at the altar, at which time a ram appeared for the sacrifice. God often tests us to see if our commitment is genuine.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” – I Corinthians 1:3 Greetings from FaithWalk Ministries – Bishop Harold G. Long, Pastor Happy Father’s Day! Morning worship service began at 10:30 a.m. “Break Every Chain” – sung by FaithWalk Choir Opening Prayer led by Elder Helen Fugate Scripture read by Bro.

Our Vision and Mission Statements were read in unison, declaring that FaithWalk Ministry’s constant goal is the work of, “Building and Sustaining Strong Communities by Breaking the Cycle of Addictive Failures.” “My Worship Is For Real” – sung by FaithWalk Choir Bishop Long’s message was entitled, “Designated Places of Favor and Miracles” I Kings 6:1-6 The servant had favor to borrow the ax. The miracle took place in verse 6. Don’t be so accustomed to recovering favors from people to the point that you don’t look for the miracles of God. II Peter 1:2-4- “all things” – favor from another person, all things natural and spiritual, and all things through the knowledge of Him. Romans 1:20-the eternal divine nature IS God! We can clearly see the thoughts of God. What we see are the thoughts of God. II Kings 6:1-7-Jordan was the designated place of the miracle. Verse 2-You need to pray and ask the Lord to move you to a bigger spiritual place so you can do greater kingdom work. You can get favor when you pursue the things of God. When God gives you a miracle, He will cause things to happen for you to get the miracle. This servant was chosen for this miracle because he had a heart of integrity, he was grateful for the favor (he was worried about his purpose-verse 5), and he appreciated the miracle! God could trust him with the favor. Eilsha asked ‘where did it fall (verse 5-6) because he had already experienced miracles at the Jordan beforeII Kings 2:6-14-this miracle occurred in verse 8. Elisha was familiar with the Jordan. II Kings 6:6-7-Elisha did not use the faulty handle but he cut a new stick. This stick fell into the ‘thither’ from the previous miracle in Jordan with Elijah and Elisha. The ax attached to the new revelation an swam to the servant. The servant took that miracle and used it for God’s glory. If the enemy tries to disconnect you from your miracle, God will give you a fresh revelation. Reach out and grab it. Expect your miracle! Time was offered at the altar for salvation and healing. Everyone is welcome to come and worship with us: Tuesday at 7 p.m., Wednesday - 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!

MAEDC hosts Dean Barber for familiarization tour of region Moberly Area Economic Development Corporation recently hosted a regional familiarization tour with international site consultant Dean Barber. Mr. Barber is the President and CEO of Barber Business Advisors, LLC, based in the DallasFort Worth metro area. As a site selection consultant, Barber advises companies as they look for optimal locations for future operations throughout North America. Mr. Barber also advises economic development organizations on how to better compete for future capital investment. Familiarization tours are a great way for site selection consultants to learn more about the strengths and weaknesses of the region, said MAEDC President Corey Mehaffy. “We enjoy hosting familiarization tours with consultants like Dean, because it allows us to physically bring them to the region, tour the sites and buildings in our four counties and gain their perspective on our assets. This scenario is far more effective than showing site consultants aerial photographs of our assets in their offices or pointing them to this information on our website,” Mehaffy said. “Familiarization tours allow the consultant to learn first-hand about our regional assets which better enables them to have discussions with their clients about the advantages of doing business in the MAEDC Region.” Having “boots on the ground” is central to learn-

ing about a region and far exceeds what can be attained from any website, Barber said. “I was very much pleased with my visit to the four-county region represented by the Moberly Area Economic Development Corporation. The region has some very good assets for business growth, which I now have a better understanding of as a result of seeing them firsthand,” he said. Barber said he prefers to work with regional economic development organizations as they represent multiple communities. “I was particularly impressed by the team regional approach to economic development. Frankly, it is the only way for rural counties to effectively compete today in the arena of industry recruitment,” he said. Barber added, “Finally, I would like to commend the staff and the board of directors of the Moberly EDC for the professionalism exhibited. Economic development is never an easy nut to crack, but this group will surely continue to have future success by their thoughtful and unified leadership role in the region.” While touring available sites and buildings in the four-county region with Barber, MAEDC hosted events in Boonville, Monroe City and Moberly where Barber spoke about economic development practices with MAEDC stakeholders. Mehaffy added, “Dean was able to speak with

stakeholders in the region about the site selection process and economic development in general. Let’s face it, when the professional who is paid to assist expanding companies is sharing information with you about what his clients expect from competing communities you better take note. There are multiple opinions on how to run an economic development organization, but it is nice to hear an expert in the field confirm that our regional concept is critical to the success of our efforts in the years to come.” MAEDC Vice-President David Gaines was quick to add his appreciation for several partners as well. Gaines added, “We would like to thank Dean for taking time from his busy schedule to visit our region. It was an honor to host his tour.” Gaines also wanted to thank several partners who made the stakeholder events possible including Monroe City, Monroe County IDA, Boonville IDA, Isle of Capri Boonville and Ameren Missouri.

Eastern MO Crappie Club would like to thank Monroe County Cancer Supporters and Relay For Life from Paris and Lincoln County and for all their help at the Jack and Jill Tournament.

After being born and raised in northern Illinois, teaching school and working construction in heavy industry all over the US and parts of Northern Africa, I came here in 1990 to buy property and retire in 2001 and never felt so proud of any group of people as I have in the past month. Thank you Monroe County and Relay For Life team members. Yes, I have been to Spain, Maine and Spokane, Washington and proud to say that I settled in Monroe County.
