Monroe County becoming Work Ready In an announcement earlier this week by the Missouri Department of Economic Development, Monroe County is the latest county to join the ranks in Missouri in working toward becoming a Certified Work Ready Community. “We are very pleased to have our efforts to improve our workforce receive this recognition,” said Corey Mehaffy, President of Moberly Area Economic Development. “Our partnership has aided us in moving in this direction.” The four-county nonprofit regional economic development team has been the driven force behind having Monroe County included in the Certified Work Ready Community program. Cooper, Howard and Randolph Counties which are also partners in the Moberly Area Economic Development Corporation have also received notice of being named a Certified Work Ready Community – In Progress. “Having the ability to prove that we have a q ­ uality

From the desk of the Editor

Why? Oh Why?


Busy... That is not just a word but it is also a way of life for many in our local area. It seems that there is never enough time in a day to get things done for many. Multi-tasking has become the word of the day and the night... This week there is no sports available for many as MSHSAA has each school district take a “down” week. This week is when many families take their vacations. so as not to conflict with camps, practices or other sporting events. I have heard from numerous individuals that this summer has “flown by.” It does seem to go quickly with numerous activities coming up in the next few weeks. Of course the countdown has begun to the opening day of school. Principals and administrative staff will soon return to work to prepare the schools for the addition of students. Not long after the leadership team has reported to work it will be time for the teachers to attend their mandatory before school meetings. Then after all the preliminary items have been checked off their associated lists it will be time to throw


open the doors and the students will arrive. I have always heard administrators mention, “ready or not the students will arrive on that first day.” Once we get back to the books the next progression will be for the sports schedules to kick in. You have read here before that I consider high school athletics the best tickets in town. Not just athletics but any program featured in school either a play, a band concert, Quiz Bowl or any other program. Come out and support your schools - they need the support and it is good medicine for what ails anyone. The support you give to the students resonates throughout the buildings on campus. Come raise the roof, the bleachers or the stands to support our future. Have a great week!

Some things in life are just not meant to make sense I guess. Like why oh why does my refrigerator handle still get tons and tons of gunk on it? My youngest are almost ten years old. I thought that was something I would just have to put up with while they were tots. What is on their hands and how much is on there? It has to be quite a bit to be able to stick to the handle. Right???? Then to top it off I open the fridge door to clean off the handle and I notice more sticky, goopy stuff on the side of the door, on the inside of the door, etc. etc. etc. How does this stuff get in so many places anyway? This might sound silly or petty to some but it really does baffle me. Do they not notice the globs of food residue left from whatever they ate on their hands when they open the fridge? Or do they notice but do not care? Which leaves me to wonder why oh why can’t I adopt this attitude sometimes of simply not

As Time Goes By

The Filibuster Buster 30 years only 20 executive nominees were the subject of filibusters and 16 of President Obama’s choices have been stalled. The Constitution calls for only 51 votes and was never intended to give the minority party a veto over a president’s choice. The simple threat by the majority to use this “nuclear option” appears to have killed the filibuster against executive appointments. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham admitted that Corday was being filibustered ‘because we didn’t like the law that created his agency and that was wrong.’ The deal didn’t include the upcoming choices for Secretary of Homeland Security or Chairman of the Federal Reserve nor did it include many federal judicial appointments. But it is a positive step that may one day also include taking a look at a single senator’s power to object to a nominee and delay or frustrate an appointment for any or no reason at all. Of course the newly found filibuster buster will be available to the Republicans as well when they again have the majority in the Senate and those elephants have very long memories.

caring and sweating the small stuff like my hand sticking to the fridge door? Why? Oh! Why? This is a question I ask myself time and time again when my children are arguing with each other about the silliest, dumbest things. Most of the time they are debating a fact that neither of them even knows which is true. It could be about how something is made, where someone was born, or the height of the tallest tree. It really doesn’t matter what it is about as long as there is at least two sides so they can argue about it. Some days I wonder if one or not all of them have careers as lawyers in their futures and they are getting practice arguing cases. Or maybe they are just trying to pick a fight with their sibling so they argue the opposite

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

90 Years Ago July 27, 1923 Picked Berries For Neighbor: Because of sickness which had made him unable to work, the neighbor of Roscoe Young of Goss recently picked 12 gallons of blackberries and sent them in to him. In the party were: Everett Dooley, Jake Clark, Aruthur Hawkins, Fred Blackaby, Porter Turner and Jim Young. Long Branch 9, Bee Creek 6: Long Branch added another victory to its big collection, Sunday, by swatting out nine counters and holding Beek Creek to six. Sign For 1924 Chautauqua: Anderson Blanton, president of the Paris Chautauqua Committee, announced Tuesday night that another contract with White and Brown had been signed for next year’s Chautauqua. No effort was made to sell tickets for next year from the platform as enough pledges were taken at the gate. Leo Smithey is the only new member of the committee for next year, succeeding W.S. Moore. All officers were reelected, Anderson Blanton, president, and Guy Moss, secretary. Four more adult season tickets were sold this year than in 1922, the number being 640. Eighty season tickets for children were disposed of. The local committee turned over to the Chautauqua company $1,271 this year as compared with $1,267 in 1922. This amount was exclusive of the $125 collected at the gate from those who had bought no season tickets. Why We Should Have Union Church: Rev. Selah

will preach on the above topic at a union service to be held at the Christian Church Sunday night. Being a Methodist minister, there is considerable interest in what he will have to say on the subject. 75 Years Ago July 28, 1938 Stark Will Speak In Paris Next Monday: Governor Lloyd C. Stark will be the principal speaker at a Douglas rally in Paris next Monday afternoon. The governor will speak at 4 o’clock. A band concert will be a preliminary to the address. People from all parts of Monroe County, are expected. Governor Stark will tell why Judge Douglas, who has made such an outstanding record as a member of the Supreme Court, should be rewarded for his devotion to duty. He also will tell why a Kansas City boss is trying to eliminate him from that high court. It will be a fighting speech from start to finish, and will be worth coming miles to hear. Applies for American Farmer Degree: Edd. Ervin Terrell, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Terrell of south of Paris, is an applicant for the degree of American Farmer, the highest degree a vocational student can attain. C. L. Angerer, assistant state supervisor of vocational education, was in Paris Wednesday, investigating Terrell’s application and qualifications. If Terrell is awarded the degree, which only comes to one who has been outstanding in every way, he will be the first in Northeast Missouri to receive such a degree.

side the box before assuming there is something inside but I have to be honest it is still a wee bit irritating Then there is the other scenario when the package isn’t empty but it might as well be. One day I took out a package of cookies, opened it up and found half of a cookie left in the package. The person didn’t even leave one cookie. They left half of it. I thought, “Why in the world didn’t they just eat the whole cookie. Why did they leave one little half?” I do not crave cookies a lot but when I do there is nothing worse then going to the cabinet, opening up a package and seeing a sliver of a cookie. Some days I wonder if they are just too lazy to throw the empty boxes away? Do they really not notice the boxes are empty or there is only half a cookie left? Are they soooo full from eating too many cookies that they can’t polish off the last half? Which leaves me to wonder why oh why don’t I just take the glass half full attitude and be grateful I got exercise walking to the trash can throwing away empty boxes and I consumed less sugar and calories eating only half a cookie?



This past week there was a last minute deal between Democratic Senate leaders and the Republican minority to free up seven of President Obama’s nominations. Majority leader Harry Reid had threatened to change the Senate rules so that nominees could be approved by a simple 51 vote majority which would prevent republican filibusters that required 60 votes to overcome. Reid gave up on his threat when some Republican Senators agreed to allow a vote on Richard Corday as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and also allow six up or down votes on six others including nominees for E. P. A. head and Labor Secretary. In response, President Obama agreed to replace two nominees to the National Labor Relations Board that the President named as “recess appointments” during a Senate break. The deal included 17 Republican Senators and was brokered by John McCorin with approved of Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. The filibuster had become a favorite tool of Republican noncooperation. In the last


of what the other one is saying. I really work on tuning them out especially when no one is getting hurt and it is staying at a G rated argument but after awhile they start to drive me crazy with the bickering back and forth. Then I have to put a halt to it for fear of losing my peace. Which leaves me to wonder why oh why am I not getting better at this tuning out thing when I have had plenty of practice? Why? Oh! Why? I ask myself this a lot when I am in the kitchen. For example, when I go to the cabinet and find a empty box of crackers that someone managed to take the last package out but left the empty box there instead of throwing it in the trash can. This might not seem like a big deal and on most days it might not be but on the day when I made chili thinking I had a box of crackers with actual crackers in it, it kind of was. Little did I know it was not a box of crackers but merely a box of nothing. I just don’t understand the logic behind leaving an empty box which is now considered trash sitting in the cabinet instead of taking a few seconds to toss it. Of course, I have learned now to look in-

the heat can affect the surface of roadways. “The heat can cause pavement blow-ups,” said Beth Wright, MoDOT’s maintenance engineer.

“These occur when the roadway surface expands at a crack or joint where moisture has seeped in. The crack weakens the pavement and the heat causes the pavement to buckle and warp.” MoDOT crews are monitoring state routes for these blow-ups and will make repairs as soon as they occur. Wright asked motorists who come across a blow-up to report the problem so crews can make necessary repairs. Motorists can call MoDOT’s toll-free customer service center ­ at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (888-275-6636) to report pavement blow-ups.

SENIOR NEWS Protect Your Car fromBySun and Heat Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

The sun and heat can be very damaging to a car. During testing conducted at the State Farm Vehicle Research Facility, interior air temperatures have been recorded well in excess of 145 °F and vehicle interior surface temperatures on areas exposed to direct sunlight in excess of 195 °F. But it’s not just the dashboard and seats that you need to look out for, a car’s finish and engine are also at risk. So whether you live in a warm climate yearround or just need protection during the summer months, it’s always best to be safe and prepared. Protecting Your Interior - Park in the shade. It is the easiest form of protection. By avoiding direct sunlight, you’ll help keep your dash from drying and cracking. If it is safe to do so, crack the windows to help lower the interior temperature and equalize the air pressure. - Use a windshield sun protector. It’s a great way to keep your car cool and prevent sun damage. They may look a little cumbersome at first, but they are really quite easy to use. Wipe dash with a microfiber cloth. Dust and dirt can cause tiny scratches that can become worse over time. -Wipe down the dash frequently to remove all particles. A low-gloss detailing product will also protect it and reduce glare. -Install seat covers. They not only protect leather and fabric seats, but they also help keep them cool. - Protect leather seats with a conditioner. The sun and heat can really do a number on them. To help avoid cracks or tears, keep seats clean and apply leather conditioner often. Tips for the Exterior -Wash and dry often. Sun and heat can fade and crack the paint. Frequent washing and hand drying help remove dirt and dust particles that can cause micro scratches and dull your car’s finish. -Wax your car. A layer of wax between your car’s finish and the sun’s ultraviolet rays is a great way to help protect it. How often a car needs a wax job varies, but it is best to do it on a regular basis. - Check tire pressure. Hot pavement and under inflated tires can be a dangerous combination and may lead to a blowout. Even good tires can lose about one pound of air pressure a month, so it’s really important to check often when it’s hot. Make sure you follow your vehicle’s manufacturer recommended tire pressure. Under the Hood - Cooling system. In order to help protect your engine from overheating, make sure it is in good working order. Have the belts checked and antifreeze/ coolant drained, then replaced on a regular basis as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. -The rest of the fluids. The possibility of overheating greatly increases when fluid levels are below recommended levels. Regularly check motor oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and brake fluid. If any need to be topped off, check your owner’s manual about the types of fluids recommended. - Battery. High temperatures and high accessory loads (use of the vehicles air conditioning) can cause it to wear out and fail quicker. Have the vehicle’s battery and complete charging system checked regularly by a professional mechanic to make sure it’s functioning properly. - Air conditioning. Staying cool not only keeps you comfortable, but can also help you stay alert when driving. If your car’s interior temperature isn’t cool enough, the refrigerant charge level in the air conditioning system may be low or there may be a more serious problem. Have it checked by a professional. Be sure to stay cool and safe no matter how hot it gets. A little preventative maintenance and simple upkeep can keep you on the road and out of your mechanic’s garage.

Monroe County Appeal •


The congregation of Holliday Christian Church gathered for worship on Sunday, July 21, as Sally Blakemore played the piano prelude. Guest minister, Lorenzo Scott, was welcomed along with his wife, Jo, and sons, Gideon and Levi. The Lesters will perform at Madison Christian Church at 6:30 p. m., on July 28, as a part of the church’s 175th anniversary celebration. The wedding of Loretta Willingham and Jerry Koch will be held at the Holliday Church on Saturday, Aug. 3, at 4 p.m., with reception following at 15 Diner, at Paris. The church will host a breakfast for Holliday School personnel on Monday, Aug. 26. Happy birthday was sung for five members of Lorenzo and Jo Scott’s family who all celebrate in July. The congregation stood to sing the opening hymn, “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus”; pastoral prayer and “Gloria Patri” followed. Prayer concerns were expressed for: Beverly Wandrey, Richard DeOrnellas and Larry DeOrnellas and to David Holmes who is traveling to a balloon event. Sympathy was expressed to former pastor Art Mott and his family upon the loss of Art’s son and to the family of Lillian Sullins. Lorenzo shared the joy of having the opportunity to reunite with family members who he had not seen for several years. “Blessed Assurance” was the prayer hymn sung; moments of meditation followed as the final

verse was played. Prayer and unison recital of the Lord’s Prayer followed. The communion hymn chosen was “We Give Thee but Thine Own”. Serving at the Lord’s Table as elders, Gary Wilson and Phil Blakemore, and as deacons, Gerald Roberts and Guy Callison. After sharing of communion and collection of offerings, an offertory prayer and the doxology closed the communion service. The morning message was based on scripture from Chapter 12 of 1st Corinthians and was entitled “The Want of a Nail”. The nail signifies how such a small thing may seem insignificant in the kingdom of God, but how each of us, like the nail, has a purpose no matter how small, to serve in that kingdom. “Draw Me Nearer” was the hymn of invitation and dedication. A closing prayer and singing of “The Spirit Song” ended morning worship. Members gathered to share fellowship and refreshments in the church basement. Jane Akers read “Our Help Comes from God” from the book, “365 Things God Wants us to Know.” Billy Graham’s address to a group on the occasion of his 92nd birthday was shared by Diane Wilson. Jim McMorris then led the group in prayer and in study from the book, “Sparkling Gems” – “The Judas Kiss”. All are welcome to attend services each Sunday at the church with worship beginning at 9:30 a.m., followed by Bible Study at 10:30 a.m.

Pastor Kenny’s message today was titled, “Be Humble in Love.” Scripture was taken from Romans 12: 9-21. We must all protect unity of the body. Encourage us to strive to strengthen the unity and humble who we are in Christ. In order to keep our body strong, we need to love and encourage each other. We are to treat each other with honor and respect and forgiveness must take place. We must listen to God let Him lead and follow that lead. We need to always remember that we are all a work in progress. Prayers for family of Nicholas Copenhaver, Anna Spires, Rodney Spires, John Flowers, Larry DeOrnellis, Richard DeOrnellis, Gwen McBee, Jack Burch, Dane Kendrick, Trish Redington and the youth group on mission in Canada from Mt. Airy Church, Jill Thomas, Keith Woodhurst, Matt and Sara Watson, Isaiah Olivas, Carolyn Pearson, Noah Holmes, Danny Hilton, Clarinda Da-

vis, Rhonda Graupman, church campers and leaders, those that were baptized last week and traveling mercies for Jim and Janie Hurst. Praises were for Bill Holmes new job and John Flowers making progress. Visiting us today was Pastor Barbara Zastrow, the previous pastor for Santa Fe Christian Church.

Church Youth Camp is currently in session until 11 a.m., on Wednesday and children’s camp begins at 4 p.m., on July 24. Coupon ministry is ongoing; Summer lunch program workdays are Friday, 9:30 a.m. and Sunday, 4 p.m. Other announcements: (all events p.m. unless otherwise designated) Marriage of Amanda Nicole Johannaber to Jensyl Angell, Saturday, Aug. 10, 4:00, First Baptist church, 101 South Collier, Centralia, Mo.; The Reveal Tour, Chris Day and special guest, Carl Christiansen, Sunday, Aug. 11, 6:30– cost is free will donation. Jimmy Stewart gave the children’s sermon. He told them that God made the world. He asked, “Did he make us all alike?” He showed sunflowers that were different sizes. He showed them tiny seeds. God provided the rain and sun to make them grow after he planted them. He also showed them different sizes of cucumbers. God created all the people in the world but they are not the same size nor do they look alike nor do they all speak the same language. God loves

each of us and wants to do something special in each of our lives. Steve Ensor gave the call to worship from Philippians 3:10-14 and for the personal worship moment he sang, “I Give You My Heart”. The choir sang, “Shout to the Lord”, directed by Cheryl Gholson. Reverend Wesley Hammond’s sermon was from Matthew 9:27-31, entitled “According to your Faith”. There is a connection between God and our activity. Things happen because of our faith. In Matthew 9, crowds followed Jesus to see his miracles. In Matthew 9:27, the scripture teaches that two blind men followed Jesus and called out to him, “Have Mercy on Us, Son of David”. In verse 8, Jesus asks “Do you believe that I am able to do this”. They replied, “Yes Lord”. He touched them and healed them saying, “According to Your Faith will it be done.” Miracles should bring honor and praise to God. God’s activity in our life is our affirmation of the faith we already have. We should not have a calamity faith or a casual faith but we should possess a faith that is complete. A complete faith believes in God no matter what happens. Our faith must emphasize who God is and not what he has done.

The First Christian Church held worship on Sunday, July 21, with Pastor Donna Scott officiating. The congregation was pleased to welcome her back from the General Assembly. Her morning message, “A Tale of Two Sisters,” was a drama about Mary and Martha and was based on Luke 10:38-41. Nadine McKinney served as the Worship Leader, Mary Beth Mitchell served as the Song Leader, and Mary Jo Wilson served as the Organist. Other participants were: Elders Mary Beth Mitchell and Donald Johnson; Diaconate Tom Threlkeld, Roseann Raines, Nadine and Bill McKinney; and Acolytes Katelyn McGinness and Lainie Chandler.

Quarterly Elders’ Meeting 7:30 p.m. Those celebrating a birthday this week are: Dorothy White, Laine Forrest, and Roseann Raines. The July Elder’s Helping Hands are Howard and Peggy Warren. The church may be contacted at (660) 327-4440 or fc418@centur Pastor Donna Scott may be contacted at (660) 3271355 or (573) 933-0593.

Adult Sunday School is held at 9:30 a.m., Junior Church at 10:30 a.m., and worship at 10:45 a.m. Everyone is welcome.

The Sunday, July 21 worship hour of the Perry Christian Church began with singing “Praise Him, Praise Him”. Pastor David Todd gave the Welcome and Call To Worship. Ecumenical Vacation Bible School will begin 6:p.m., tonight at the Baptist Church. The closing program will be on Thursday at 7 p.m. “My Jesus, My Jesus” and the prayer hymn “Just A Closer Walk With Thee” was sung with “Lord, Listen to Your Children Praying in response. Prayers were given for a great inspirational experience at Bible School with the children. Those with health concerns and surgeries are David Evans, Ruth Seelow, Frankie Ross and for Joyce Winfree, who is now at Beth Haven, in Hannibal. “Burdens Are Lifted at Calvary” was sung after the invitation to share in the Lord’s Supper. Prayers were offered by

Elders Greg Harrison and Arlen Provancha. Warren Hetrick, Jim Gay, David and Wyatt Lewellen served as deacons. Arlen sang the special music “There’s Something About That Name”.

Luke 10:38-42 was read by Jesse Todd about Mary and Martha. The pastor’s sermon was on “Two Sisters Fighting For Attention”. Mary with attentive faith and Martha with good works, illustrates the individuals focus of devotion. It is important to pick up our bibles, read and reflect on God’s word and how it pertains to our lives. The invitation hymn “Let Jesus Come Into Your Heart” preceded the benediction, closing with “Lord, Dismiss Us With Your Blessing”

Prayer was held for Donnie Arment; Maria; Brian Carey; Danny Hilton; visitors Maddison, Cindy and Mark; travelers; and all said the Lord’s Prayer with Debbie singing “10,000 Reasons”. The message “The Power To Be Positive” was based on scripture from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 as Paul writes to the Thessalonians, Jesus is Alive! HE is coming back! HE will come down from heaven and those who have faith will join Him in heaven... It is hard sometimes to stay positive in today’s world. You know there is a heaven - you are not alone - use your church family in time of need. Go to Jesus for comfort of joy and peace... Jesus knows all of your troubles. As you awake kneel down and thank God for the good things...surrender all and imagine that God is walking with you... Read your bible when you are feeling down, God is your refuge

and your strength...Help others who need help... Hold fast to your belief in eternal life. Faith overcomes the world! Faith Hope - Love Kaylee Beckham led the offertory and all sang the “Doxology”. Debbie played “Standing on the Promises” as all retired in fellowship. Come join every Sunday at 9 a.m. to hear the word of the Lord.

On Sunday, July 21, 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: Remember to pray for the youth trip to Canada, they will return on July 29. The Mountain Aires will play at Clarence on July 22, at 7 p.m. The church will help serve breakfast at children’s camp on Friday and Saturday. This week’s message was titled ‘The Christian’s Love’ and came from John 6:27-31. To become like Jesus one must hear the words Jesus has to say to us. Hearing is more than vocal recognition of words. One must take Jesus’ words, accept them and live them. This must happen for believers to love like Christ. Loving enemies is a hard thing to do. Christian love is committed to the highest good to those we love. This is how Jesus loves. This is a choice one must make and this choice comes from a proper attitude. The attitude is one of doing good for others. This is how God treats those who hate Him every day. How could believers do anything less? Doing good to those who hate you is not avoiding them or ignoring them. Doing them good is displaying Christian love is the midst of their hatred. To do this, believers must interact with them. As much cursing that goes on today Christians have much to bless. Can you be gracious when someone verbally attacks you? Jesus did. Jesus did not have a selfish attitude

that demanded others pay for their mistakes against Him. Should we do any less? We are to pray for them. They need the truth of God and His intervention in their lives. Prayer moves the hand of God. Turning the other cheek does not make a Christian a doormat for abuse. Jesus is confronting our selfish nature and our pride. Jesus did not make you pay for your offenses, in fact He forgave you. How about having the attitude to forgive others like Jesus? These actions are starting to show the love of Christ. The same is for someone taking your clothes. Jesus does not want you to go around naked. But someone taking your coat is a small thing in life. Same thing if someone takes your stuff. Is it more important to have ‘stuff ’ than to love like Jesus? Seems many Christians think so today. Cannot take stuff to heaven with you. Love like Jesus and you will have rewards in heaven. This is because you are living the ‘Golden Rule.’ This is no more than treating other the way you want to be treated. Every Christian is to be tender to the young, compassionate to the aged, sympathetic to the young, and tolerant with the weak and wrong. At some time in your life you will be all of these. Even if you are right and someone else is wrong, how would you desire to be treated if you were wrong? Romans 12:18 tells us, “If it is possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.” Hear the words of Jesus and it will be possible.

The First Amendment Guarantees???

Since the terrorist’s attack on 9/11 and the Boston Bombing, this year, our individual rights, in the name of National Security, have been compromised. Are there fundamental rights that no government can and should violate? Thomas Jefferson was very critical of the new Constitution because it did not spell out what rights the Federal Government could not abuse. Eight of the 13 states ratified the Constitution because they were assured the Bill of Rights would be added. On Dec. 15, 1791 Virginia became the eleventh state to ratify the 10 amendments, which make up the Bill of Rights and became a part of the U.S. Constitution. The American Revolution was fought because of abusive government. The First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” The following are examples of recent actions from our government that appear to be at odds with the First Amendment. You be the judge. In February 2002 The House of Representatives approved a bill that makes it illegal to protest or assemble in protest when certain government officials are nearby; whether or not you know it. July 6, 2013 President Obama signed an executive order allowing the While House to control all private communication in the country. This order could include all telephones, radio, TV, and the Internet. The Health Care Law states that religious organizations will be required to pay for birth control and the morning after pill even if it is against their religious beliefs.

Sydenstricker’s of Missouri Earns Farm Equipment’s Prestigious 2013 “Best-in-Class Dealership” Award

Sydenstricker’s of Missouri; with locations in Mexico, Macon, Rocheport, Kirksville, Chillicothe, Palmyra, Moscow Mills, Curryville, Tipton and Herman, has been selected as the 2013 “Bestin-Class Farm Equipment Dealership” by Farm Equipment magazine. Farm Equipment presents its “Dealership of the Year” awards annually to farm equipment dealerships in two categories: one for those with $50 million and under in annual revenues and one for dealers generating more than $50 million in annual revenues. Sydenstricker’s of Missouri, which is a 10-store retailer of John Deere equipment, along with several shortline brands, earned the distinction this year in the over $50 million category not only for its outstanding financial and operational results, but also its attention to customer care, employee development and community involvement. Sydenstricker’s was chosen for the award by a panel of renowned farm equipment experts. Farm Equipment’s Dealership of the Year judging panel included Dr. W. David Downey, director, Center for Agricultural Business, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind.; David L. Kahler, retired CEO of the Ohio-Michigan Equipment Dealers Assn., Dublin, Ohio; and Charles Glass, president, Glass Management Group, Arlington, Texas.

The judges for Farm Equipment’s 2013 Dealership of the Year program reported that selecting this year’s award winners may have been their most difficult challenge since the recognition series was established in 2005. In total, fellow dealers, employees, customers, and suppliers nominated nearly 100 North American dealerships for the 2013 selection. Sydenstricker’s was founded in 1944 as a family-owned dealership, which it continues as today, nearly 70 years later. Our business philosophy is consistent with our tag line – “Your partner in growing a better tomorrow,” says Eddie Sydenstricker. “Our success comes from that partnership philosophy with our customers and suppliers. All of our dedicated and qualified staff truly lead the way in providing exceptional service and solutions to all of our customers.” “We have adapted to many changes over the years and continue to invest in our facilities, technology, staff, and take great pride in the communities we serve. Most recently, we have completely remodeled our Mexico, MO dealership and established an Integrated Solutions Department for the entire organization. This new department is focused on the future, and the many possibilities in precision farming, with products like RTK networks, AMS, value-add-

ed services, training and consulting. With this Integrated Solutions Group, we have been certified by John Deere as a Phase 3 FarmSight dealer,” says Sydenstricker. Farm Equipment magazine profiles the winners of its Dealerships of the Year in its July/August 2013 edition. The complete article can be seen at com.

Weather will determine direction of cattle industry The cattle industry in Missouri is a big deal with 59,000 farms in the state raising cattle. That’s why the University of Missouri’s 2013 Breimyer Seminar focused on the future of the Missouri cattle industry. “The question we’re talking about is where is the industry headed,” says Ron Plain, MU Extension agricultural economist and professor in the MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. “Are we going to have continuing decline in cattle numbers or are we going to turn it around? The direction we’re headed has implications for not only rural Missouri but for all Missourians because a lot of tax base and a lot of jobs come with these cattle numbers.” Historically, cattle have been the No. 1 product from Missouri farms, but in recent years cattle have slipped to No. 3 behind soybeans and corn. The U.S. cattle inventory is currently the smallest it has been since 1952. Cattle numbers increased for nearly 200 years but since 1975 have been decreasing. Plain says the biggest thing that will determine which direction the cattle industry goes is the weather. “If we have drought like last year, cattle numbers will be forced down because the feed is not there,” Plain says. “If we have a good summer, plenty of rain and lots of grass, then the economics kick in. It is profitable to raise cattle and we will get herd expansion.” Once you get past the weather, other factors matter such as consumer demand for beef and exports, but they don’t have quite the unpredictability of the next month’s weather, Plain says So far in 2013, the weather has been favorable for grass growth, and with a good forage supply cattlemen are likely to retain more heifers and cows for breeding this fall. However, it will take another year for the increased breeding herd to make an impact. The turnaround won’t happen overnight. “For the time being, we’re still going to go

down,” Plain says. “The number of bred cows and heifers this year is 2.1 per-

cent lower than last year, meaning a smaller calf crop this year.”

On Sunday, July 21, 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: Remember to pray for the youth trip to Canada, they will return on July 29. The Mountain Aires will play at Clarence on July 22, at 7 p.m. The church will help serve breakfast at children’s camp on Friday and Saturday. This week’s message was titled ‘The Christian’s Love’ and came from John 6:27-31. To become like Jesus one must hear the words Jesus has to say to us. Hearing is more than vocal recognition of words. One must take Jesus’ words, accept them and live them. This must happen for believers to love like Christ. Loving enemies is a hard thing to do. Christian love is committed to the highest good to those we love. This is how Jesus loves. This is a choice one must make and this choice comes from a proper attitude. The attitude is one of doing good for others. This is how God treats those who hate Him every day. How could believers do anything less? Doing good to those who hate you is not avoiding them or ignoring them. Doing them good is displaying Christian love is the midst of their hatred. To do this, believers must interact with them. As much cursing that goes on today Christians have much to bless. Can you be gracious when someone verbally attacks you? Jesus did. Jesus did not have a selfish attitude that demanded others pay for their mistakes against Him. Should we do any less? We are to pray for them. They need the truth of God and His intervention in their lives. Prayer moves the hand of God. Turning the other cheek does not make a Christian a doormat for abuse. Jesus is confronting our selfish nature and our pride. Jesus did not make you pay for your offenses, in fact He forgave you. How about having the attitude to forgive others like Jesus? These actions are starting to show the love of Christ. The same is for someone taking your clothes. Jesus does not want you to go around naked. But someone taking your coat is a small thing in life. Same thing if someone takes your stuff. Is it more important to have ‘stuff ’ than to love like Jesus? Seems many Christians think so today. Cannot take stuff to heaven with you. Love like Jesus and you will have rewards in heaven. This is because you are living the ‘Golden Rule.’ This is no more than treating other the way you want to be treated. Every Christian is to be tender to the young, compassionate to the aged, sympathetic to the young, and tolerant with the weak and wrong. At some time in your life you will be all of these. Even if you are right and someone else is wrong, how would you desire to be treated if you were wrong? Romans 12:18 tells us, “If it is possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.” Hear the words of Jesus and it will be possible.
