Two students organize school rivalry “Pink Out” game to benefit local county cancer patients

It is that time of year again - it is “Pink Out” time! Two Paris R-II students Lauren Embree and John DeOrnellis launched the “Pink Out Basketball” campaign last year to raise awareness of cancer and help to raise money to assist county cancer patients with medical expenses. They also began the campaign to honor their 4-H Leader Jacquie Stuart who lost her battle with cancer in January 2012. Both students list Stuart as a guiding force in their lives and describe her as nothing short of a true friend and mentor. The Madison C-3 Panthers will

host a high school basketball game versus the Paris Coyotes on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2012, at 6 p.m. Between now and the game students from the two schools compete to see who can sell the most pink T-shirts and hoodies. This year paper basketballs have been added for sale. They cost $1.00 and are being mounted on the walls of the gyms. Last year over 600 shirts and hoodies were sold and over $4,000 raised. For additional information or to order shirts contact Shari Embree 660-216-5589 or Mary DeOrnellis 573-473-6938.

Flu season to begin, take precautions

It is flu season! The Monroe County Health Department would like to remind county residents that while there is not a high precedence of Influenza in Monroe County, flu season has just begun. With cases of influenza increasing nationwide, residents are reminded that flu shots are still available at the Monroe County Health Department. “Yearly flu vaccinations are covered by Medicare and Medicaid and recommended for everyone six months of age and older,” noted Monroe County Health Department Director Paula Delaney. For more information call 660327-4653. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a three-step approach to fighting influenza (flu). The first and most important step is to get a flu vaccination each year. But if you get the flu, there are prescription antiviral drugs that can treat your illness. Early treatment is especially important for the elderly, the very young, people with certain chronic health conditions, and pregnant women. Finally, everyday preventive actions may slow

the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses, like flu. How does the flu spread? Flu viruses are thought to spread mainly from person to person through the coughing, sneezing, Continued to page 4

Gone But Not Forgotten 2012

Each New Year we are reminded of the passing of the famous and infamous during the past year. Early in 2012 bowling great Don Carter died at age 85. Long time Penn State Coach Joe Paterno, fired in the school’s abuse case, passed on at age 85. Blues Singer Etta James passed at age 73 and pop music diva Whitney Houston’s unique voice was silenced at age 48 after a troubled few years of stardom. Bluegrass legend Earl Scaggs who teamed with Bill Monroe and later Lester Flatt died at 88. 2012 also saw the loss of Disco queen Donna Summer at age 63, Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees at 62 and Davy Jones of the Monkeys at 66. A number of well known actors and television personalities died in 2012. Most notable were long time “60 Minutes” host Mike Wallace who was 93 and ever youthful Dick Clark, age 82, whom many of us watched for years on “American Bandstand”. Richard Dawson, the host of “Family Feud” died this past year at age 79. Our favorite sheriff Andy Griffith passed on last year at age 86. Also passing away this year were Sherman Hemsley of “The Jeffersons” who we hope “moved on up”. He was 74. Actors Charles Durning 89 and Jack Klugman 90 both died in late 2012. Neil Armstrong made his final voyage this past year at age 82 as did Sally Ride, the first woman in space who died at 61. In Politics, we lost former Senator George McGovern at age 90, Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii at age 88, and Robert Bork, 85. Rodney King passed at age 47, hopefully to a place where we can “all just get along”. Closer to home, we lost Andy Williams of Branson at age 84. There were many others, not so famous people who died last year and left a vacant spot in the hearts and minds of all of us for their passing. For those mentioned here and for those close to each of us that left us last year we should be grateful for their lives and the part they played in ours.


Just Ask Dave...

Why??? Why do I read a newspaper? I read a newspaper first and foremost for information, for entertainment and for enjoyment. First information… A newspaper contains nuggets of information, local information that may not be found elsewhere. In a newspaper you may read that jacs has a fantastic dessert that it is now featuring; or you may Publisher David Eales read how the Republican and Democrat clubs are both active and holding meetings in the county. In a newspaper you may read how Paris R-II student Britney Williams was student of the month, how many Madison C-3 and Holliday C-2 students made the honor roll and almost perfect attendance list; and how active the Country Homemakers are in supporting their community. In a newspaper you may read how Dede Bounds and Jessie Walter were selected 2012 Miss Paris and 2012 Miss Madison respectively; or how students Lauren Embree and John DeOrnellis organized a “Pink Out” basketball game between county rivals to raise money for a local cancer organization and to honor and pay tribute to their 4-H leader. In a newspaper you may read about numerous activities, meetings and daily events that affect you such as the ability to sign up for local school, city and other boards until Tuesday, Jan. 15. For entertainment… In a newspaper you may be entertained by the various articles, pictures, advertising and layout. In a newspaper you might be entertained by the numerous royalty pictures from Homecoming, Courtwarming and Prom; entertained by the pictures of A Cubed ceremonies, Red Ribbon Week door decorations; Halloween and Christmas parades; and Breakfast with Santa. For Enjoyment… You may read a newspaper for the enjoyment of the feel of the paper in your hands; for the enjoyment of finding that nugget of information or finding something that no one else might of like a free subscription offer in a QR code. You may read a newspaper for the enjoyment you get from helping a local business survive through tough times in the economy and continue its history of support for its local community.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, There is NO middle ground! The Second Amendment is very clear. I expect any legislator to support all law abiding Americans. Those people on medication should not dictate laws for responsible firearm owners. A dog had his chain reduced one link at a time, every few days, until his chain was so short he could barely move. He never resisted because he was conditioned to the loss of his freedom slowly, over time the chain was reduced one link at a time, every few days, until his chain was so short he could barely move. He never resisted because he was conditioned to the loss of his freedom slowly, over time. Do you see this happening in our country? And I think Washington had it right according to the way he wrote about being armed. See Below. “A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” George Washington Sincerely yours C.

Asks Food for Our Former Foes. Washington, Dec. 20 - Appropriation of 70 million dollars for relieving famine conditions in Germany and Austria was proposed in a resolution introduced today by Representative Newton, Republican, of Missouri. The resolution, which declared the people were in despair, provides that the fund be expended for purchase of food supplies in the United States to be distributed by the American Red Cross with the assistance of Red Cross organizations in Germany and Austria. Introduced in behalf of twentyone members of congress the resolution even now prevails among the 70 million people of Austria and Germany and that unless relief is extended immediately, “hundreds of thousands if not millions will die of hunger and cold during the coming winter.” Testing Radio on a Moving Train. Raphael Miller, of Kirksville, was a passenger last week on a parlor car out of Kansa City on which the Wabash Railroad was making its first official test of radio as equipment for such cars. In the party were two Service camera men, three officials of the Western Radio Company and two dancers, a man and woman, who were to try out dancing aboard train to radio music, Sgt. McMahon, of the Canadian army, known as the blind singer and two or three other persons. A concert broadcasted from Kansas City was heard all the way from Kansas City to Moberly. The dancers found they could dance to the music as well as they could any other kind of music in such small space, and Sergt. McMahon, and Mr. Miller sang to the music coming in by radio. Mr. Miller says the Wabash officially seemed enthusiastic over radio as parlor car equipment.

Camp Probably Will be Moved. The Paris CCC camp, located on it’s site at the Fairgrounds for the last 2 ½ years, will in all probability be moved to some other Missouri county during the summer, according to the best information the Appeal can get K. G. Harmon, state coordinator, was asked about the matter while in Paris last week and although stating that nothing definite had yet been done, gave his conviction that the move in order to give some other county the benefit of the soil erosion work such as has been done here, There are many Missouri counties in which no camps have ever been located and no soil control work has ever been done. WPA Building Two Roads. Good progress is being made on a road running north from Granville to Shelbina by way of the Tucker Bierly farm. It is being built as a WPA project, the Government furnishing the labor and the farmers the funds for crushing and hauling material. The road, with a 12-foot width of crush rock has been finished to a point a half mile north of Tucker Bierly’s. At the Shelby county line it will connect with a hard-surface road into Shelbina. Work is also is in progress on a WPA road from the creek just east of Middle Grove north to the Madison special district at the Jim Berkley place, by way of the Ownby school-house, a distance of 3 miles.

50 Years Ago Jan. 10, 1963 Installation of Automatic Telephones Started Wednesday Inside Paris. Workman for the Western Light & Telephone Co. began installing new automatic telephones inside Paris on Tuesday, according to John Barr, local manager. When the cut-over is made from the present system to the automatic dial system, need for nine of the present ten regular and relief operators will not be needed. One person will be employed at the office in the new building and collections will be made there instead of the Harley Electric Store. The office will be open five days weekly. Factory Wants to Move Into Paris--Officers Here Friday. The National Garment Co. with headquarters in St. Louis, has definitely decided to located in Paris if arrangements can be worked out between local people and the officials of the company. The company plans to manufacture infants wear at Paris. The tentative plans call for starting with ten or more workers the first month and gradually building up to 100 or more as the workers become adequately trained for the work they must do. Most of the workers would be women. A recent labor survey showed that there is an adequate labor supply in the Paris area.

Official Relates Impact of SBA Loan Program. Members of the Paris Rotary Club heard of the benefits of the Small Business Administration’s loan program during their weekly luncheon last Thursday. A recent report from SBA noted that 335 loans totaling almost $56 million were administrated by them in eastern Missouri during their last fiscal year. Of those, one was in Monroe County for $95,000 and crated 3 jobs. Century 21 Moves to New Location. Century 21 Country Properties formerly located at the junction of Highways 15 and 24 north of Paris, is now located at 602 S. Main Street. The business has purchased the home adjacent to the old Robo Car Wash and is in the process of remodeling it. They moved their offices to the home early this week and have been conducting business from the new location. Denny Nobis of Century 21 said the move will give his agency more room as well as put them in a higher traffic area. He noted that the closing of Save-A-Lot earlier this year has reduced the traffic at the former location in past months. Improvements underway at the facility include a parking lot on the north side of the building and installation of a new computer system, Nobis said.

Just a Thought

by Lisa Talton

I’m Gonna Start My Diet Tomorrow Oh! Those f a m o u s words we think as we are polishing off the last bite of the Big Mac we ordered. The words we manage to say in between bites of the chocolate chip cookies leftover from Christmas that we said we were going to give away so we wouldn’t be tempted. Or when we are drinking our second 32 oz. soda for the day and we are getting THAT look from a loved one and we comment, “I know, I know, I’m gonna start my diet tomorrow.” I know there are a lot of us who are struggling with our weight and every time we turn around there is a new diet, weight loss plan, new way of life idea, pill, procedure, equipment, or technique that promises to give us results to this very real problem we are facing day in and day out. There is the grapefruit diet, the cabbage soup diet, the Hollywood diet, the protein diet, the no carb diet, the liquid diet, the chips and candy diet. (For those of you who saw this last one and said-”Wait a minute I have never heard of this one. I wonder if it works? I think I could do a chip and candy diet. This might be what I have been looking for.”-Sorry I made it up.) And those of you who are reading this and thinking, “Well, I really don’t have a problem with food or my weight.” First let me say-not fair, not fair, not fair. Then let me say you might not be saying you are going to start your diet tomorrow but maybe it is “I’m going to quit smoking, or drinking, or work on my anger tomorrow.” A lot of us are looking for that ONE thing that we think is going to work for us-the one thing that is going to help us turn things around. Whether it is to help us lose weight, to help us stop smoking, to help us quit drinking, to help us with our anger or to help us live life less stressed-We are searching for the answer. This world makes money off of the fact that we are searching for this-hence all the diet pills, plans, equipment, stop smoking programs, medicine to help us sleep better, feel better, and look better. But no matter how good the product, idea or plan we find to help us live a healthier and better life, I

do not believe there will be a long term effect until we have settled the issues within ourselves and developed the right attitude. We all have issues that we are dealing with or have dealt with in our lives. We might think we are not pretty enough, good enough, smart enough, talented enough. We have done things in our lives that we are not proud of so we think we are undeserving. We have been wounded by people through abuse, words, or neglect. We have unforgiving hearts that get in the way of us growing. These are all issues that are deep within us and are the very things that can stop us dead in our tracks on our way to making positive changes in our life. For example, have you ever been in the process of losing weight or cutting back on drinking or quitting smoking and your doing a great job but then for some reason you just loose your momentum and give up? Could it be that we are still dealing with thinking we are not deserving or dealing with negative words that were spoken to us as a child? Could it be we do not believe in ourselves? Are our minds filled with negative thoughts and feelings instead of positive ones? Or maybe things have been stressful so we are using food, cigarettes, or alcohol to relieve the pressure? We are ALL dealing with something in our lives that we know needs to change. What if we decided to change our attitudes about ourselves and others. What if we decided to focus on the positive instead of the negative in ourselves and others. What if we decide to tell ourselves everyday-”I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I have been created for a purpose and a plan. I am beautiful and worth good things. I forgive every person in my life that has hurt me and I am going to love people regardless. I am a loving, caring, and giving person who is going to affect this world in positive ways.” I believe that once we deal with the hurt and negative thoughts on the inside of us then the other changes will come. If we can truly love ourselves for who God made us then we can truly love the ones around us for who God made them. We have to be ready and willing for change for the change to occur.

YOUR ACCOUNTANT YOUR ACCOUNTANT CALLED……. PointsCALLED to Keep in Mind When Choosing A Tax Preparer …….

Giving peace of mind at tax by time is important Deby Fitpatrickbut customer service during & after the return is complete is of greater concern to me. B&N Services Preparing taxAccounting returns canand be Business complicated & confusing. If you are able to prepare yourABOUT own, great! THE If you hate to do so , you will be FACTS happy toCHILD know thatTAX as of Jan. 1, 2011 CREDITall 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:

Ask if the preparer is affiliated with a professional organization. New regulations require all paid tax return preparers including attorneys, CPAs & enrolled agents to apply for a Preparer Tax Identification Number before preparing any federal tax returns. B&N is a member of Nat. Assoc. of Tax Preparers. Research the firm’s reputation. Check to see if the preparer is registered with the IRS Office of Professional Responsibility, state boards of accountancy, the state bar associations and other related organizations. B&N’s staff members have passed the Register Tax Return Preparer exams, follow a strict code of ethics, and maintain their education requirements with the IRS. We also have an Enrolled Agent on Staff (equivalent to a CPA). Find out about their service fees. It is illegal for preparers to base their fee on a percentage of your refund. B&N is priced in accordance with the difficulty of the preparation and charges based on the complexity of the form. Make sure the tax preparer is accessible. Make sure you will be able to contact the tax preparer year round. B&N is available by phone if we are not in the office since we are onsite with clients May – December. Provide all records & receipts needed to prepare your return. Preparers should request to see your records & receipts & should ask you multiple questions to determine your total income, expenses and other deductions. You may be losing deductions, thus paying more in tax if your preparer only plugging in numbers without asking questions. Review the entire return before signing it. Avoid tax preparers that ask you to sign a blank tax form. Before you sign your tax return, review it & ask questions. You are responsible for the accuracy of every item on your return. The preparer must also give you a copy of the return. B&N signs our work before presenting it to you.

People infected with flu may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5-7 days after becoming sick. That means you may be able to spread the flu to someone else before you know you are sick as well as while you are sick. Young children, those who are severely ill, and those who have severely weakened immune systems may be able to infect others for longer than 5-7 days. What are everyday preventive actions? Everyday preventive actions are steps that people can take to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory illness, like flu. These include the following personal and community actions: • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. This will block the spread of droplets from your mouth or nose that could contain germs. • Wash your hands of-

Demystifying Auto Insurance Terms By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

Most states require drivers to have auto insurance— but how do you know if you’re getting the right type of coverage for your needs? Your first step is to fulfill your state’s and lender’s minimum requirements. A call to your state’s insurance commissioner’s office can get you started. Then, familiarize yourself with the different types of insurance and what each covers. These typically include: Bodily Injury Liability covers injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damage you might cause to other drivers, passengers and/or pedestrians. It also covers court and legal fees. Rental Reimbursement will pay for a rental vehicle if your car is not drivable after an accident. Collision provides coverage for damage inflicted to your vehicle after a rollover or accident with another car or object. Coverage kicks in after a policyholder meets his or her deductible*. Comprehensive provides coverage for damage to your vehicle after a non-vehicle or non-rollover incident, such as theft or weather damage. This coverage typically requires a deductible. Emergency Road Service can cover expenses related to a breakdown, including towing. Medical Payments and Personal Injury Protection offers compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and even funerals if you or other covered persons* are injured in a vehicle-related accident. Property Damage Liability covers damage you cause to another individual’s property while driving. This also covers court costs and legal expenses. Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Coverage can provide reimbursement if you’re involved in an accident with a driver who doesn’t have sufficient liability insurance—or any at all. *Terms to Know: Premium: Payment you make to your insurance company for coverage. Deductible: The amount you pay before your insurance company pays the rest. Higher deductibles equal lower premiums; conversely, lower deductibles equal higher premiums. Covered Persons: Policies generally cover the policyholder, their spouse, other relatives living in the home, and individuals driving the policyholder’s vehicle with their permission.

Santa Fe Christian Church

Pastor Kenny Sharp

“There Is Only ONE Jesus” was the title of Pastor Kenny Sharp’s message Sunday morning. Scripture reading came from Matthew 24: 4-5, 23-26 and 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18. We are not to be deceived. We are very susceptible to being deceived. Be aware of nice-sounding messages! Only a solid foundation in God’s Word can equip us to perceive the distortions in false teachings. As Christians, our commission is to go and spread the gospel and our command is to be seed planters and harvesters. Dawn Peak spoke with the children about random acts of kindness and shared with them a story of kindness shown between baseball players of opposing teams. She asked each of them to do an act of kindness every day. Prayers were requested for Tonya Pugh, James A Booth, Naomi Cheatum, Jimmy McGee, our school staff, Elizabeth Brown, Shawnee Williams, Charlotte Hanna, Hollie Kendrick and Darcy Woodhurst. Chase Kendrick asked for traveling mercies for his grandparents, Dane and Jill Kendrick. Praises were shared by Frances Thomas for the sale of their rental home.

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

The Epiphany Sunday, Jan. 6 services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Patti Grimmett playing “We Three Kings” on the piano followed by Pastor John Grimmett leading the Responsive Reading from Isaiah 60 and the Prayer of Confession. Debbie Carey led all in song to “Angels From the Realms of Glory”; “The First Noel”; “As With Gladness Men of Old” and “Away In A Manger”. Prayer was held for Margret Birlew’s mom, Marie; the Cearley’s James A; Jimmy McGee; Kathy; Abby Grimmett; and all said the Lord’s Prayer. Patti sang “The Christmas Story” as she played the dulcimer. The message “An Ah-Ha Moment” was based on scripture from Matthew and Second Timothy as Epiphany is the twelve days after Christ birth; appearing - a moment when life makes sense; the wise men appeared...King Herod had sent out men in search of the Christ Child - as they presented gold - incense - Myrah gifts fit for a king, to Jesus and they went on their way. Gifts that Mary and Joseph could use on their flight to Egypt. The birth of baby Jesus was good news for “All” people. The wise men followed the star and were filled with joy - the revelation of a long trip was not in vain - they bowed down and worshiped Him - to worship Him and enjoy Him forever. Worship - Joy - Jesus in the light of the new baby Christ child. People of today follow and search - just going through the motions... The only joy is through Jesus Christ - that “Ah-Ha Moment” when you encounter Him! Martha Hill and Curt Jackson led the Communion; Bobby Gash and Kaylee Beckham led the Offertory as Patti played “Auld Lang Syne” and all sang the “Doxology”. Patti played “March of the Kings” as all retired in fellowship and took down all the holiday decorations.

The choir directed by Cheryl Gholson provided special music, “Have Faith In God”. Children’s church was led by DeDee and John Mitchell. Wesley Hammond’s sermon was from Habakkuk 2:2-4, entitled “The Righteous One will live by his faith”. In the book of Habakkuk there is dialogue between the prophet and God. To Habakkuk, God’s way appears to be unjust and he struggled to comprehend God’s will through his troubled doubts. God responds to Habakkuk that He is working in these events. Habakkuk cannot understand why God would tolerate the treacherous and allow the wicked to swallow up the righteous. In the Lord’s answer he tells Habakkuk to write down the revelation and wait for the appointed time. In Chapter 2, verse 4, God says, “ the righteous person will live by his faithfulness”. Today, we should live by faith no matter what is going on around us, even if the results are not apparent in our lifetime.

Paris First Christian Church Pastor Donna Scott Paris Christian Church became excited on Sunday, Jan. 6, the first Sunday of the new year!

During the week, let each of us extend the good news of God’s Love to each other, our families, our friends and our community.

Mt. Airy Baptist Church Pastor Robt. Cavanaugh On Sunday, Jan. 6, 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 Lottie Moon offering goal was met. Starting on Tuesday, Feb. 5 there will be an Andy Griffith bible study at 6 p.m., at the church. On Saturday, Jan. 12 there will be men’s breakfast at 8:30 a.m. This week’s message titled ‘The Lord’s Supper’ and came from 1 Corinthians 11:17-34. The Apostle Paul rebuked the Corinthian church for the worldly way they took the Lord’s Supper. Instead of coming together as one body they were dividing into clicks, being selfish, and acting worldly. Their self deception on the Lord’s Supper showed they did not partake of this ceremony in the right spirit. The bread is symbolic of the body of Christ ‘which bare our sin on the tree’ and by this we are dead to sin 1 Peter 2:24. So it is through the body of Christ that believers are able to have the power to overcome sin in their lives. So by eating the bread, believers are accepting deliverance out of selfishness and sin, and accepting the Lord’s will in our life (which is righteousness and love). Bible believing Christians knows the cup is symbolic for the blood of Christ. Ephesians 1:7 tells that ‘we have redemption through his blood and the forgiveness of sins.’ So the cup represents the forgiveness of God to man through the blood of Jesus Christ. One purpose of God’s forgiveness to man is that we can have eternal life with God. So the cup also has a resurrection element to it. Duet. 12:23 says ‘not to eat the blood for the blood is the life’. So to God life is found in the blood. Life’s nourishment, provision, and support is found in the blood. For the body of Christ the life is found in the blood of Christ. So when we drink of the cup we are drinking to the fact we believe that God will abundantly supply all our needs from now to eternity. The blood of Christ did not just save believers from hell but also gave them abundant life. As you take the Lord’s Supper you are to reflect on these things and remember what Jesus Christ has done for you. Do not approach the Lord’s Supper in an unworthy manner for this has caused sickness and death. Instead, this is an opportunity to view yourself through the mirror of God’s Word and be honest about your relationship with Jesus. Accept what God show you and grow from it.

Ralls County Cooperative to receive $300,000

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack recently announced the selection of recipients for grants and loans to help spur economic development and create or save jobs in rural communities in seven Midwestern and Southern states. “This funding will help rural businesses create sustainable, quality jobs,” Vilsack said. “These projects demonstrate the Obama Administration’s ongoing commitment to ensure that rural communities attract the investments they need to support business development. Funding will be provided to applicants in Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska and Tennessee. USDA Rural Development is providing support through the Rural Economic Development Loan and Grant program (REDLG), which provides zero interest loans to local utilities that they, in turn, pass through to local businesses for projects to create and retain employment in rural areas. Ralls County Electric Cooperative in New London, will receive a $300,000 grant to assist Moberly Area Community College (MACC) construct a higher education center in Hannibal. The grant funds will complement a $1,000,000 REDLG loan received by the cooperative in October 2012. For information about the Rural Economic Development Loan and Grant program, please visit http:// BCP_redlg.html. Rural Development State Director Janie Dunning said, “The grant funds will allow Moberly Area Community College to expand planned facilities in the

higher education center. This expansion in turn will increase the program offerings thereby increasing educational opportunities for students. Ralls County Electric Cooperative is commended for recognizing the importance of education to the economic and social development of communities in their territory.” With today’s announcement USDA is investing more than $6.1 million to create economic opportunity. Funding is contingent upon the recipient meeting the terms of the grant agreement. For other examples of USDA investments in rural communities, please visit Rural Development’s interactive web map at http:// RDSuccessStories.html. The map features program funding and success stories for fiscal years 2009-2011. For further information about Rural Development programs in Missouri visit the website at: http://www. President Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack are committed to a smarter use of Federal resources to foster sustainable economic prosperity and ensure the government is a strong partner for businesses, entrepreneurs and working families in rural communities. USDA, through its Rural Development mission area, has an active portfolio of more than $176 billion in loans and loan guarantees. These programs are designed to improve the economic stability of rural communities, businesses, residents, farmers and ranchers and improve the quality of life in rural America.

Eagle Days set for Clarksville, Jan. 26, 27

Every winter, the showme-state welcomes record numbers of bald eagles and boasts some of the most plentiful viewing areas in all of the lower 48 states. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) encourages eagle-lovers of all ages to discover nature and get outdoors to view our nation’s symbol at the annual Eagle Days event at Lock & Dam 24 at Clarksville on Saturday, Jan. 26, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Jan. 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Spotting scopes will be set up at the River Front Park and volunteers and staff from MDC will help visitors watch eagles and migrating waterfowl. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers staff maintains a bonfire to keep the chill off as participants watch the eagles feeding on fish in the open waters. Additionally, Eagle Days features activities to entertain and educate the whole family. The Apple Shed Theater, located on Missouri 79 on the south edge of town, will host a live

eagle program every hour on the hour, hands-on exhibits and displays, kids’ activities, and viewing of the MDC video Where Eagles Soar. The building is not heated, so make sure to dress warmly. “Eagle Days are a great way to enjoy nature in the winter and also a fun way to spend time as a family,” said Karen Armstrong, MDC conservation education coordinator. “Make sure to bundle up the family, for temperatures can be chilly, bring blankets, and don’t forget your camera and binoculars.” The annual celebration of winter wildlife watching is hosted by the Missouri Department of Conservation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Clarksville. All events at Clarksville Eagle Days are free. Clarksville is located south of Louisiana on Missouri Highway 79. For more information, call Armstrong at 660-785-2420 or visit and search “Eagle Days.”

We talked about the run Hallsville had in them at half and we saw it very quickly in the second half. They quickly erased our 12 point lead and made it a ball game early in the 3rd quarter.
