Proclamation signed for cancer awareness

Members of both Relay For Life of Monroe County and Monroe County Cancer Supports came together to visit the Monroe County Commissioners to receive a proclamation for breast cancer awareness month. “We are here to request a proclamation for cancer awareness month,” said Relay For Life Chairman Ali Rentschler. Rentschler explained to the commissioners the activities planned for the month including painting the two “pink.” “We are not only doing Paris but Monroe City and Madison also,” added Rentschler. The group was in agreement that a proclamation was an important symbol to designate the month and announce to local residents the significance of the pink all around town. On hand to request the proclamation were Relay For Life and Monroe County Cancer Supporters members Leslie Rosenkrans, Karen Conley, Ali Rentschler, Barb McCall and Donna Turner. All were quick to note that each organization is active in making sure that cancer is eradicated in their lifetime. “We are happy to create this proclamation,” said Western District Commissioner Glenn E. Turner. The proclamation read as follows: Whereas, The Monroe County Com-

mission recognizes that Breast Cancer is a terrible disease that affects the lives of citizens of Monroe County everyday. Many of our citizens have lost their lives to Breast Cancer and many more live with the fear of its return even after successful treatment. Whereas, The Monroe County Commission applauds the efforts of Monroe County Relay For Life, Monroe County Cancer Supporters, as well as businesses and individuals who are working to elevate the awareness of Breast Cancer in Monroe County. Therefore, the Monroe County Commission has proclaimed the month of October, Two Thousand Twelve, the official Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Monroe County. The proclamation was signed by all three commissioners. Why sign a proclamation designating the month? According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 4,440 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 900 deaths from breast cancer are expected to occur among women in Missouri in 2012. The American Cancer Society offers 24/7 support to those diagnosed with breast cancer and their loved ones. In fact, one out of every two women turn to the Society for help and support following their breast

This October, the Society will be using National Breast Cancer Awareness Month to remind women about the importance of breast health. “The American Cancer Society encourages all women to put their health first. We want women to understand the benefits of eating a balanced diet, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly and

limiting alcohol intake,” said Laura Ozenkoski, health initiatives director at the American Cancer Society. “More than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors will celebrate a birthday this year thanks to early detection and improved treatment.” Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer death in women, second only to lung cancer. The Society is reminding women

40 and older to have a yearly mammogram and clinical breast exam. Also, the Society recommends that women ages 20 to 39 receive a clinical breast exam at least once every three years. The five-year survival rate is 99% for breast cancer that is diagnosed in the earliest stages. The American Cancer Society is the most Continued to page 9

With Fire Prevention Week 2012 scheduled for Oct. 7-13, State Fire Marshal Randy Cole urges Missourians to remember the importance of having at least two escape routes for your family to safely exit your home in case of an emergency. “It is important that families plan and prepare for the unpredictability and dangers associated with fires,” State Fire Marshal Cole said. “Fires can spread rapidly, blocking planned escape routes. This makes it essential to have at least two quick escapes routes planned in advance from different rooms throughout your home. Having an alternate route in case another route becomes blocked can save lives.” Fire Prevention Week is recognized annually by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and fire departments and safety agencies across the country. This year’s campaign, “Have 2 Ways Out,” encourages everyone to plan multiple fire escape routes for their families. According to NFPA, in 2010 there were an estimated 369,500 reported home structure fires across the U.S., resulting in 2,640 civilian deaths. An NFPA survey also revealed that only 23 percent of American households have actually developed and practiced a fire evacuation plan. Fire Marshal Cole suggests developing a home escape plan as soon as a family moves into a new residence; regularly practicing the plan and explaining it to children; and revising the plan as the children grow up. Cole adds that having a working smoke detector is essential to ensuring your family is alerted in case of a fire. “Working smoke detectors increase your chance of survival by 50 percent, and are something every household should have.” For more than 85 years, fire departments have observed Fire Prevention Week, making it the longest running public health and safety

observance on record.

the slogan for Fire Prevention Week has taken many shapes – from the straightforward “Help Prevent Fires” (1937); to “YOU Caused 1,700,000 Fires Last Year!” (1947); and this year’s “Have 2 Ways Out!”

2012 Fire Prevention Week features new slogan “Have 2 Ways Out”

Team voting to be provided in county before Nov. 6

According to Monroe County Clerk Sandra Francis team voting will be provided prior to the Tuesday, Nov. 6, General Election. Anyone who is shut in and unable to go to the polls may request the “Absentee Team” to visit them in their home or they may contact the County Clerk’s Office to be placed on the permanent disabled list. Missouri Election Law 115.284 (I ) establishes an absentee voting process to assist persons with permanent disabilities in the exercise of their voting rights.

Monroe County Appeal

Clerk Francis urges anyone who would like to be placed on the list to contact her office by either mail or telephone. Those people who are already on the permanent list will remain on the list and do not need to contact the office. Individuals wanting more information on either of the above need to contact the County Clerks Office, 300 North Main, Room 204 or telephone 660-327-5106. The Absentee team will visit area nursing homes on Tuesday, Oct. 30. Anyone wishing to vote an absentee ballot may do so in the County Clerk’s Office during regular office hours, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. or mail in a request for an absentee ballot to be mailed to their place of residence.

How Separate is Separate Today??

There appears to be a growing tendency to blur the line between traditional views of how separate our government and our churches should be. Two recent examples point out the activity of various churches that might be troublesome for those who believe that churches and governments should be strictly separate. This past Sunday some 1,000 to 1,500 American pastors have declared Pulpit Freedom Sunday and have defied the Internal Revenue Service’s ruling that tax exempt organizations are not allowed to participate in partisan campaigning for or against political candidates if they wish to retain their 501(c) (3) tax exemption. The ministers have endorsed political candidates in defiance of the rule and are daring the IRS to do anything about it. Their claim is that every church has the right to decide what their preacher says from the pulpit. They claim that the IRS rule has caused church leaders to avoid speaking about subjects that their churches believe to be religious truths such as opposition to homosexuality or their support for traditional marriage. A very recent survey by Pew Research Center indicates that two out of three Americans believe that churches should not endorse political candidates. Another survey of Protestant pastors by Life Way Research shows that almost 90 percent of Protestant pastors believe that no candidates for public office should be endorsed from the pulpit. The second example is a most recent report of a group of St. Louis ministers involving themselves in lobbying the St. Louis County Council to put speed camera usage on a County ballot. Their claim is that the cameras are used by small cities in the County as speed traps. It is hard to see a compelling moral issue here that would require a charter change in the County and override several municipal ordinances even though it is a popular idea with the driving public. Point being that there are demonstrable increases in political activity by churches and pastors. While there are definite negative ideas about any governmental incursions on religious beliefs and practices, we have not seen the red line for churches and pastors that involve themselves in political races and activities under the banner of freedom of religion and of expression. They have not recognized the image of Caesar, will never pay taxes like the rest of us and pay no heed to those who are troubled by their increasing political activism.


Just Ask Dave... by David Eales Publisher/Editor Participation. Every day everyone has the ability to participate in something. Lucky for us some people participate in keeping us safe such as the sheriff’s department, fire department personnel, 9-1-1 crew and our EMS and first responders. Others participate in keeping us educated - public education teachers, pre-school teachers, daycare workers and others in the education field that help prepare our youth for their and our future. Even others keep us well - doctors, nurses, health David Eales department personnel, hospital workers, pharmacists, pharmacy workers and others. Not forgetting the individuals who are part of our daily lives without a thought until we need them - insurance agents, grocery clerks, judges, elected officials, salesmen, retail workers, farmers, ranchers, agricultural workers and all the rest that are an integral part of our daily lives. Now there is also people who participate in things other than those that provide remuneration - these are our outstanding volunteers. I can not say enough about these amazing individuals and groups. Some of these fall into our safety category and we thank them profusely. Others do it for a cause - whether that cause is cancer (Monroe County Cancer Supporters, Relay For Life, Barking Butterflies), autism (such as the upcoming birthday bash sponsored by Nathan Hancock), leukemia, eye disorders (supported by the Lions Club), and numerous other causes that have an effect on each of us in so many ways. Thank you is such a small thing to say but when so many say it it grows with intensity and meaning. So from a community, a county, a neighborhood, a block, an individual – to all our volunteers - thank you! Lewis County Press papers will again be delivering a multiple county saturation on Thursday, Oct. 19. This month’s theme will be our annual “Hunting and Outdoor” issue. The Monroe County Appeal will be delivering the newspaper to all residents in both Monroe and Ralls Counties. This is 4-H Week. The Monroe County Appeal, as is always the case, will publish a 4-H special insert the last week of the month. This is done for the purpose of allowing complete coverage of the 4-H recognition night, this Saturday night, Oct. 13. Have a great week!

90 Years Ago Oct. 6, 1922

The faculty and pupils of the local school are asking the Board to enlarge the proposed shop building on the campus to a structure 24 by 80 feet, in which there would be sufficient space for a gymnasium. A banana pie, the handiwork of Miss Lovie Shrade brought $1.60 the highest price paid for a pie at the pie supper last Friday night. Miss Rella Bryan, night operator at the Bell central officer resigned Sunday after 12 years and 7 months of faithful service. She will be succeeded by Miss Maude Davis, daughter of Mervin Davis. Clarence Robinson is the first in the Paris area to equip his farm home with a wireless outfit. He recently purchased a Western Electric set from Carl Harley and now gets concerts from all over the United States, besides the daily market reports and news events. Notice from City Feed Store. We can now have a market everyday for your wheat. You don’t have to wait until we get a car. Our bins are completed and we can take care of it any time.

On Friday and Saturday nights it will present the greatest laugh thriller of the year, “Reported Missing.” Apples for sale at the Earl James farm 4 ½ miles north of Paris

75 Years Ago Oct. 14, 1937 A very unusual thing occurred at Long Branch Baptist church, south of Paris, Sunday, when a father and son—James C. Dowell, Sr. and James C. Dowell, Jr.— were ordained as deacons. Both boys and girls high school basketball teams will play the alumni teams at the school gymnasium, Friday evening. Carey Wilson, rural mail carrier on Route 3 out of Paris, set a new record for the Pine Springs Golf Course north of Paris last week, when he shot 18 holes in 71, making the first round in 35, the second in 36. Thousands of farmers are taking advantage of the mild autumn weather to harvest fruit and garden vegetables and prepare them for winter storage. The volunteer fire department made a practice run Saturday afternoon to a bonfire built for that purpose in the street north of the courthouse, taking 2 ½ minutes from the time the engine left the firehouse until the hose was hooked up and water going through it. A Halloween costume party for the children of Paris up to 12 years of age will again be given this year by the Progressive Club. Since Halloween comes on Sunday, the party will be held Monday evening Nov. 1 Dr. Clifton Corwell, associate professor of speech in the State Teachers College at Kirksville, will address a joint meeting of the Paris Progressive Club and the Monroe County Schoolmasters Club at the Baptist Church in Paris next Monday evening.

50 Years Ago Oct. 11, 1962

The Monroe County Fox Hunters will have its annual hunt and turkey supper Saturday night at Boatner’s Camp, east of Paris. Up to Wednesday afternoon 13 :”War Ballots” for people in the armed services had been applied for at the office of county clerk Please Wilson. The elimination of the daily bus service through Paris from Moberly to Monroe City, except on Sundays and holidays, has been requested by the operators, the Trenton-St. Joseph Coach, according to the Public Service Commission at Jefferson City. Sunday will be the 55th anniversary of the entrance of Dr. George Ragsdale of Paris into active medical practice in Paris. In the Oct. issue of the “National Pub-

lisher,” a full page width picture of the Appeal office appears. It is a reproduction of the picture Norman Rockwell, noted artist, painted of it, a picture which was published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1946. The Paris High School band with their instructor, Glenn Packham, participated in Band Day held in Columbia. The County Court this week is advertising that it will accept bids for producing, furnishing and hauling crush rock or crush gravel for maintenance work on highways. The annual Monroe County Home Economics Achievement Day will be held Saturday, Oct. 13th as the Paris High School. The theme of the day is “New Frontiers for m’lady.” The Monroe County Tuberculosis Association will offer free x-rays to all high school students and adults in the county Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 17 and 18.

25 Years Ago Oct. 15, 1987

The Monroe County courthouse turned 75 earlier this year and, like everything else three-quarters of a century old, isn’t as sound as it was back in 1912 when it was dedicated. That’s one of the reasons—in fact, one of the major reasons—behind the Monroe County Commission’s recent decision to seek a ½ cent hike in the county’s sales tax.

Terry Horner was crowned 1987 Homecoming Queen at the 32nd Paris High School Homecoming. Nine parents met with the Paris R-II Board of Education at their regular monthly meeting on Oct. 13 to express their concern over the amount of homework that their children were required to do. Despite perfect hunting conditions, hunters have checked fewer turkeys in Monroe County through the first two days of the fall gun season than for the same period last year. The U. S. Air Force has announced the retirement of Master Sgt. David L. Mitchell, son of Mary C. Mitchell of Rural Route 2, Paris after 21 years of service. The Paris Trap Team traveled to Quincy to participate in a trap shoot. The team shot 99 and received second place. For the second straight year, the Show Me Club will sponsor a Haunted House for area youngsters on Halloween. The 1987 archery seasons has only been open for about two weeks but local hunters are bringing in deer and turkeys at a record breaking pace at Monroe County’s four check stations.

Just a Thought

by Lisa Talton

I am Part My Mommy and Part My Daddy Too!!!

It has been over two years since my mom has passed away but I still think about her often. She left me with so many awesome memories and too many to count wise words. The thing about my mom’s wise words was that she didn’t just speak them but she lived them. Her actions and the way she lived her life rang louder than any words she ever spoke. My mom loved people. It didn’t matter where they were from, how old they were, how rich or poor, or the color of their skin. She had such a love for others and always chose to see the good in them. Mom reminded us all the time that it was what was on the inside of a person that mattered. She said it didn’t matter how beautiful a person was on the outside if they were ugly on the inside. Mom lived her life showing God how much she love Him not only by going to church, praying or doing service but most importantly by loving others. It really bothered her when people were prejudice or racist. She believed God made all of us and loved us each the same so how could we think not loving someone because of the color of their skin was okay. I want to share with you a poem I wrote about this very thing which also reminds me of my mom. She had the opportunity to read it before she passed away and even got to see the illustrations that I had a friend draw. I told her that one day it would be made into a children’s book and I still believe it will because our world needs it. Sadly, there are still people who cannot look past color of a person’s skin to get to know them. And even sadder is that prejudice is sitting right next to some of us at church. We are saying that we love God but all the while not loving our very neighbor who is sitting right next to us. But I choose to believe we can turn this around. I choose to believe we can get our hearts right not only for our sake but for the sake of our children and our children’s children. I Am Part My Mommy and Part My Daddy Too! By Lisa Talton I am part my mommy , and part my daddy too! When you look with your eyes, that is what you’ll view. But I am even more than that, and I want you to know.

But it will take your time and heart to see what lies below.

Besides the color of my skin, may other things play a role. Yes, my color is a part of me but it doesn’t make up my whole. I am the sum of all my parts, God intended it that way. My mind, my soul, my emotions and such, all have a part to play. I love to dance. I love to sing. You might be saying “ Me too.” I don’t like veggies. I don’t like bedtime. And I despise cleaning up my room. Some days I listen really good and do what I ought to do. On other days-not so much-the times are far and few. I love to play. I love to laugh. I’m sure you feel the same. We might have different shades of skin but from the Creator we all came. Whether our skin is white, black or brown , tan, yellow or red. It really doesn’t matter you know, our skin one day we’ll shed. I believe our different colors were not made to divide and definitely not given to put us on opposite sides. So not you, not I, nor anyone else is greater than the other. We’re all His children don’t you know which makes us sisters and brothers. I will love you for who He made you, not only my eyes I’ll use. But I will give my time and heart for this is what I choose. I will look beyond your skin, your hair, and even your size. And look into the deeper parts where everything that matters lies. For you are also part your mommy and part your daddy too and when God laid out His plan for you, it was them He chose to use. So now dear heavenly Father this request I ask of you, That we see every human being in the awesome likeness of you!!

Moberly’s North Park Baptist Church will present its live Eternity House drama presentation on Oct. 24, 25, 27, 28, 30 and 31 that is free for the public. In previous years, there has been more than 700 persons coming within a 60mile radius of town who attended each seasonal presentation. The walk-through Christian drama involves six different scenes, and has four different story lines this year. Each new story depicts situations that commonly take place in many communities, and the people involved in these scenarios face some difficult life chal-

lenges and will eventually come together to a certain destination that will change everyone’s lives. There will be multiple performances of the drama held each scheduled night starting from 6:30 -9 p.m., except on Oct. 27 the productions will end at 10 p.m. Groups and/or persons are encouraged to make an appointment by calling the church office at 660263-1003, however, walk-ins are welcome. Dewey Burge, NPBC minister of youth and music, wrote the script and is drama director. Pastor is Dennis Gard.

Madison C-3 Students of the Month Postmaster reminds local patrons of mailing dates

As part of the Positive Behavior Support (PBS) program, Madison C-3 Students were recently recognized for Being Respectful, Responsible and Safe during the monthly “PAWS”itive Panther Assembly. Students who were commended for perfect attendance during the month of September received extra social/gym time. Four students were recognized as September Students of the Month

for their exemplary efforts toward being respectful, responsible, and safe. Receiving this honor were Karlie McGee - Primary (K-3), Matthew Kinyon - Intermediate (46), Maya McGuire - Junior High, and Hannah Deaver - High School. Students of the Month received a certificate, homework passes and/ or gift certificates to local establishments.

Why the changes to the new school lunch program? If you have a child attending public school, you probably have heard that school lunches have changed. Starting this year, new rules for school lunches went into effect as a result of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The last update to the lunch standards was more than fifteen years ago. Why the changes? About 17% of U.S. children and adolescents aged 2 – 19 years (12.5 million) are obese; almost triple the numbers since 1980 according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The latest statistics show that 29 percent of Missouri high school students are overweight or obese compared with 28 percent nationwide. Since 2005, Missouri has moved from ninth to eighth in the country in obesity rates among high school students, a survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found. In recent years, school meals have been blamed for helping contribute to

childhood obesity. How much of this is true is still debatable, but almost everyone agrees something needs to be done to address the problem of childhood obesity. Since the National School Lunch Program is funded by taxpayer dollars it was felt that we should be spending our money on healthy foods. Where did the new rules come from? The U.S. Department of Agriculture developed the requirements for the new school food program based on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines and recommendations from scientific experts at the Institute of Medicine. Some of the notable changes are: 1) that student meals will have ½ cup of fruit or vegetables to count as a complete meal, 2) meals will have a caloric maximum based on age group, and 3) there are limits for how much meat and meat alternatives and grains may be offered.

It’s not too early to start thinking about mailing those holiday cards, letters and packages to service members and their families stationed overseas. The first deadline for the 2012 holiday season is just around the corner. Tuesday, Nov. 13, is the deadline for sending holiday packages to troops stationed overseas using Parcel Post to all Air/Army Post Office (APO) or Fleet Post Office (FPO) ZIP Codes. “We encourage our customers to mail early this holiday season,” said Paris Postmaster Mindy Flick. “Observing the holiday deadlines will make sure that cards, letters and packages to loved ones serving overseas will reach their destinations in time for the holidays.” All military mail, regardless of destination, is sent by domestic mail rate. International rates do not apply to military mail delivery. The large Priority Mail Flat Rate Box (12” x 12” x 5 ½”) offers a $2 discount to APO/FPO destinations and ships for just $13.45. Customers can access shipping information by adding Delivery Confirmation, which is available for almost all military destinations, including those outside the United States. Delivery Confirmation provides customers with the date, ZIP Code of delivery, and time the package was delivered. This information can be accessed online at www.

What started out as a planned Civil War encampment recently turned into more of a frontier/ mountain man demonstration of sorts. Although only three reenactors came out to present, over 400 visitors passed through to learn about the life and times of mountain men in Missouri as well as their critical role played during the Civil War. Joe Hummert of Jonesgurg, (seen in

the picture above provided in depth interpretation of the everyday life of these unique pioneers through hands on demonstrations. Visitors were allowed to get up close and personal in the mountain man’s camp. Betty Wilson from Athens and George Hardy from Centralia were on hand to discuss some of the aspects of Missouri’s role during the Civil War.

Pastor Kenny Sharp

“Stop Backing Up!” was the title of Pastor Kenny Sharp’s sermon. Scripture text was taken from Joshua 5:13-15, Matthew 16: 18-19; Romans 8:38, Ephesians 3:10, 6:12 and Colossians 2:15. Points from the sermon were 1) God is very plain that He is in charge of your life 2) Know how to fight. Bind up things that should not be in your life and 3) Speak truth - defeat negativity!! God lets us have mountains and valleys in our lives so we will realize the blessings we do receive. Beware of those people who cause dissension in your lives and stay away from them. Pastor Kenny’s sermon went along with Dawn Peak’s children’s message which is to beware of those lurking in the dark and to know right from wrong. Put on the armor and be ready for the daily warfare. The devil is always ready -- are you? Jessi Benskin assisted by Andi Holmes taught the children’s ministry. Prayers were lifted up for Grace Peak, Tonya Knight, Keith Deaver, Tom and Ola Riley’s daughter, Rebecca, Helen Sharp, Evan Bockenstedt, our congregation, those serving in the military and for the Chase’ friend, Adam, who is looking to change jobs.

The thought for the week from Arthur Ashe is: “If I were to say to ‘God, why me?’ about the bad things, then I should have said ‘God, why me?’ about the good things that happened in my life.”

Church NEWS

Holliday Christian Church

Pastor David Holmes

The congregation of Holliday Christian Church gathered together on Sunday, Oct. 7 to worship and to host the annual Harvest Dinner. Reverend Holmes welcomed all in attendance following the prelude by pianist, Sally Blakemore. The opening hymn, “In My Heart There Rings a Melody”, was sung and was followed by prayer and “Gloria Patri”. Happy birthday was sung to: Debbie Ragsdale, George Harris, Beth Miller, Donnie Vanlandingham and Eric Kotsenburg. Happy 52nd anniversary wishes were for Gerald and Carole Roberts – 52 years. Prayer concerns were expressed for: Opal Johnston, Jean Wilson, Alex Madison, Mitch Rodgers and Carolyn Thomas. Singing of the prayer hymn, “The Beautiful Garden of Prayer” was followed by pastoral prayer and unison recital of the Lord’s Prayer. The communion hymn, “Break Thou the Bread of Life”, was sung as elders Jerry Ragsdale and Gary Wilson went forward to serve at the Lord’s Table. Deacons serving were Gerald Roberts and Johnny Ragsdale. Following pastoral offertory prayer, singing of the doxology closed the communion service. “Our Questions Are Not God’s Problem” was the message from Reverend Holmes on this Sabbath. Scripture from Job 1:1 and 2:1-10 was referenced. The hymn of invitation and dedication, “Rock of Ages, was sung and was followed by closing prayer and singing of the “Spirit Song”. The Holliday church family extends sincere appreciation for those who attended and supported the annual Harvest Dinner fundraiser to make it a success. The hard work of all those who prepared the church dining room, kitchen and food is appreciated as well. Regular services will resume at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14, followed by the monthly Board meeting and Bible Study at 10:30 a.m. Children’s Sunday School takes place during the regular service.

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

World Wide Communion Sunday services Oct. 7 at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Pastor John Grimmett playing guitar and singing “Breathe on Me, Breath of God’ followed by leading the Unison Prayer. Debbie Carey led in song to “Worship at the Cross Where My Savior Died”, “Amazing Grace”, “Standing on the Promises” and “The Old Rugged Cross” as Pastor John played guitar. Pastor John spoke about the Wee Kirk Conference this past week; there will be a cemetery cleanup next Sunday at 1 p.m.; prayer for Amanda Grimmett; Susie McGee’s mother, Barbara; Debbie Carey’s mother-inlaw, Louise Carey will be celebrating her 100th birthday next Sunday; Sharon Sweitzer; Arla Eisenhower in her travel to Florida; and Jim and Maxine Bueter thanked everyone for everything they did for their wedding. Pastor John sang and played guitar to “Come To Jesus”. The message “The Best Is Yet To Come” was based on scripture for 1 Corinthians 2:9; “Think about what God has planned for us”. It is written the things that God has prepared for us - He will come back with the joy of the resurrected life - the world offers a lot of things, but God worked through Jesus (a common ordinary man), who offered eternal life through His broken bread and blood - the body of Christ! The best is yet to come! That is good news, He will do something incredible in your life. The original sin was that of choosing ones self over God! We all choose to do what WE want to do instead of listening to God. The God who has prepared something wonderful in our lives. Heaven is coming - it is real. Walk by faith and cling to Jesus and walk in His footsteps...because He went to the cross for you and for me...for the sin of all mankind! Communion was led by Earl Sweitzer and Martha Hill as Pastor John played guitar and sang “Near the Cross” followed by Earl leading the offertory and all singing the “Doxology”. Services are held every Sunday at 9 a.m. and all are welcome to hear the word of the Lord. But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which ;God hath prepared for them that love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9

Pr. Wesley Hammond

Morning worship began with worshipful and musical praises. Young people from the 4-H were welcomed as visitors. Announcements: Wednesday, Oct. 10, Our Father’s Closet, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., a mission project has been established for senior citizens living in the Senior Housing – 48 units. Several of the needs for this project are canned goods: meat – meatballs, salmon, tamales, chicken and dumplings, and canned ham; canned fruit – peaches and pears and canned soup or gumbo. Other food items are Mac and Cheese, boxed plain pastas, peanut butter and crackers. Barbara Stewart announced that anyone wanting to donate a stuffed toy for the GA project has until Friday, Oct. 12, at 3 p.m., to get the toy to the church. The toys will be taken to the GA camp which is Friday, Oct. 12 and 13, at Chillicothe. They will be given to emergency response teams to distribute to children in crisis. Cheryl Bright announced the Teen Girls Retreat for 9th -12th grade girls on Friday, Oct. 12 – 14, at Cedar Crest Camp – fee $40.00. Missouri Baptist convention is from Oct. 29 until 31; Lindsey Mitchell announced that help is needed for the Trunk or Treat on Wednesday, Oct. 31, for food and treat bag preparation. Friday, Nov. 16, Hannibal La Grange University 71st Booster Banquet, meal served at 7 p.m. General Admission is $60.00 each. Reverend Wesley Hammond’s sermon was entitled, “Life Together: The Peace of the Messiah” from Colossians 3:15. All those whose lives have been touched by Christ, though living in this world, should reflect a difference from worldly aspirations. In Verse 15, Paul says, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.” Jesus sent us the comforter, the Holy Spirit. We can deceive ourselves with a “peace” in our life that tells us that things of a sinful nature are acceptable. The Peace of God should line up with the scripture. We should also be thankful. The Celebration of the Lord’s Supper was observed and special music, (vocal and piano), “Redeemer”, was provided by Brenda Ensor.

Mt. Airy Baptist Church

Pastor Robt. Cavanaugh

On Sunday, Oct. 7, church services began with the pastor giving an opening prayer. Regular church meetings of the week were announced and all were encouraged to attend. Announcements included the Sunday School Attendance Drive has started with high attendance day on Oct. 28. Remember Wednesday, Oct. 10 is the deadline to be registered to vote in November and it is the Christians duty to vote God’s Word and will. Oct. 13 is Men’s Breakfast at 8:30 a.m., and a wiener roast and hay ride is planned for Saturday, Oct. 27, at 5 p.m. There will be a community wide prayer service for the nation at the old school auditorium by city hall on Thursday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. and all are invited to attend. This week’s message was titled “Faithfulness to Christ” and came from 2 Timothy 1:6-12. Paul knew persecution was coming to Christianity and he would not be around to help others through it. Paul tells Timothy to guard against being ashamed of Christ in your life. To do this Timothy needed to stir up the divine gift God had given him; which all get at the new birth. Live in the resources of power, love, and sound mind that God has provided to Christians. Accept the persecution that is coming and remember your calling from you God. Paul did not tell Timothy or us today to do anything he did not already do in his life. Paul paid the price of suffering for Christ because he saw the power and love move in his life when suffering.

For Sunday, Oct. 7, much of our teaching focused on the application of time in regard to both life and ministry. Ecclesiastes three, verse one teaches us that: “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven...” everything that man does should serve a heavenly purpose. We know that what we do in and with our time is limited in scope and magnitude, being temporary at best. We must make the best use of the time God gives us: asking an accounting of ourselves in the endeavors of life, considering that which is past, that which is present, and that which is to come. Simply put, we are each given a specific time to be productive and of service to God and man. God has no need of time, for as we learn in verse fourteen, “I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever.” One moment of God’s time is more than a lifetime to us. There is however a decision we can make that will forever have an effect on us: the decision to accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior. Once we take that step, the meaning of time will change forever.

Monroe County FSA announces ECP approved

Monroe County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Tony Francis, announced that the Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) has been approved for Monroe County. ECP provides cost-share assistance for livestock water in areas impacted by severe drought for those producers who have had a sufficient water source, however now due to the drought conditions are without livestock water or are nearly without a reliable water source. “Livestock producers who are facing a critical need for water may be eligible to receive financial assistance through FSA,” Francis said. “ECP can help with connecting to other water sources, drilling wells, but the most important thing is that interested producers talk to the office prior to taking any action.” Francis noted that the ECP program is not designed to be a water distribution program to enhance rotational grazing systems or supply water to other corral/holding pen systems. “This is strictly an emergency need program where producers who are facing a liquidation situation or removal to another location may be eligible for assistance,” said Francis. ECP provides financial assistance for up to 75 percent of the cost to implement approved temporary emergency practices; i.e.

water pumping from another water source or spring development and up to 50 percent of permanent practice installation; i.e. running a water line from a previously installed rural water meter and installing a hydrant and/or tank or potentially digging or deepening a well if that alternative proves to be the most cost efficient way to get water to the farm in need. Appli-

cations will be accepted Oct. 15 through Nov. 16. At present, although Monroe County is approved for the program, there has been no allocation of funding from Washington in order to pay approved producers once their work is completed according to Francis. Producers must submit their requests for ECP assistance to FSA

prior to beginning any work. Completing any action, such as well drilling, before submitting an ECP request could result in forfeiture of program eligibility. For more information on the Emergency Conservation Program, or information on drought assistance, call the Monroe County FSA office at 660-327-4137 or visit

Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012

Gertrude Lavera Gertrude Lavera was born July 10, 1911 and died, March 19, 2012. A small memorial was conducted here on March 20, at her church here in Littleton so that friends, children, grand and great-grand children and her P.E.O. Chapter could have closure. Gertrude Lavera was born, July 10, 1911, the fourth of 10 children, to Daniel William Abraham Aufranc and Mary Johanna, (nee Carl) Aufranc, in a two-story white framed farm house just off a muddy road #63 in Callaway County, Missouri. The home looked up at the Missouri State Capitol built high on a limestone cliff overlooking the Missouri river bottom. The land was DW and Mary’s to raise corn and alfalfa to feed and/or sell at market. They also raised some livestock, chickens and goats. Mary had a 6th grade education and DW, a 2nd grade. Mary taught DW the skills in math and reading to allow him to build a solid living off of the land. Gertrude would frequently mention she had a happy childhood and was raised by loving parents. When Mary’s mother, Fredericka Louise nee Bruening died, her family left an estate to her only child her that allowed the family to move closer to the state university and add acreage to a new farm. She was in her 7th pregnancy, when the family moved to, Deer Park, just 7 miles south of Columbia, located in Boone County. Both parents were determined to make a college degree available for each child who wanted to take their studies that far. Gertrude attended her grade school years in a one room schoolhouse just across of the gravel entrance to their farm. She then spent weekday nights at an aunt’s home in Columbia until her high school graduation from Hickman High School in 1928. Af-

ter the flu pandemic of the 19151918 and the then current outbreak of malaria and polio; she decided to attend the new College of Nursing at Missouri University because it was free. After graduation, she accepted a grant to Peabody State Teachers College at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn., to earn a Masters in Public Health Education in 1934. She then worked in St. Louis as a surgical nurse at Barnes Hospital for a year before accepting a public health nursing position to serve the childhood victims of polio. The state trained her to fly a Cessna Aircraft that she used regularly to serve the children on the farms in the remote farmsteads in the Lake of the Ozarks. Two years later, she accepted an promotion offer from the Iowa Pubic Health division in Iowa City to visit the remote farms in that state. On her 90th birthday, her son and spouse arranged a 45 minute glider fly over of Boulder and the Denver area. She deplaned and never touched the ground until she reached the car! In the past year the October, 2011 issue of the MU Sinclair College of Nursing featured Gertrude and her many years of service to her communities. While living in Iowa City, she became reacquainted to Carl Dawson through her brother, Clarance while both worked for the state department of agriculture. She had known Carl while they were undergraduates. Still paying off her student loans, she delayed a proposal of marriage until mid-June, 1941. She and Joseph Carl married, June 29, 1941 and made a two bedroom home in Midland, Mich., where J Carl had a job with Dow Chemical. Gertrude gave birth to her first child, a daughter, Betty Jean, December 26, 1942. Jeannie quickly became her family name. A son; James Carl was born, Mother’s Day, May 11, 1944. He became, Jimmy. Then, on September 7, 1948, little Joan Kay completed the family circle. Both parents had spent much time dreaming and strategizing on building a business of their own. J Carl already had patents pending for fumigants that he had been able to gel, thus making them products that would go from a solid state to a gas where it was applied. Application equipment patents were quickly being designed to apply the product(s). So they packed up and moved to Florissant, bought a small home and began the steps to build the fumigation business they wanted to offer the grain businesses of the Midwest. After Joan was born, the little home was bursting at the seams, so a move further into the city to Ferguson, allowed them to stretch out in a two story 4 bedroom home. Gertrude involved herself in the local school district as additional RN nurses were needed to apply the new polio vaccine. She became

active in her children PTA groups. She started to refine her skills in Tournament Bridge and became a member of the P.E.O. sisterhood and all the time attending and document material for their two businesses. She also qualified as a realtor. As the children moved through school and on to college, they reduced their living space to apartments. Jean’s BS was in Hotel and Restaurant Management and what now is known as human resources. In June of Jean’s graduation, she married Dick Husted, a high school classmate. They raised 4 children; Robert Rex, David Dawson, James Richard and Elizabeth Jean. Jim was awarded a BS degree in Business. Jim and Pam‘s son Joe was awarded a business degree from University of Northern Colorado at Greeley and now lives in Boulder, Colo. Joan completed her college studies in education at MU and met her husband. He then earned a law degree and they moved to Bettendorf, Iowa. Ken’s career was to be with John Deere; and he just recently retired. Their elder son, Chad is married to Stacy and they have a son and daughter and are expecting their 3rd child in March, 2013. Joan and Ken’s younger son, David Dawson Huhn is studying architecture in Savannah, Ga. J Carl died at Lake Chipala, Mexico, Jan. 13, 1973. Gertrude remained in their retirement home in Las Cruses, N.M., for 15 months then moved to Rancho Bernardo, Calif. Two of her brothers who were retired doctors were spending the winters there and Gertrude joined the two couples for outings, golfed with the wives, joined a P.E.O. chapter there with one of the sister-in-laws and was active in the local Presbyterian Church. Her oldest brother died about 18 months after she moved there. Then his widow and Gertrude started to roam the worldPanama Canal, Alaska, England, and Hawaii. She was about to celebrated her 75th birthday when she decided to move closer to her elder daughter in Littleton, Colo. She built a ranch home in the Ken Caryl community, about ½ mile from Jeannie, Dick and their four children, Jim and Pam was also close and at that time had a son, toddler Joseph (Joey) Patrick to enjoy. Gertrude spent 15 years in that home before understanding

that a retirement community would be better. She eventually arrived at the Life Care of America, in Littleton, Colo. So she was still close to some of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She joined her daughter’s P.E.O. Chapter GZ in Littleton and just last year received her fifty year member recognition pen. Gertrude died peaceably Monday morning, March 19, 2012 at the age of 100 ½. Her death leaves behind one sister, Dorothy, two sisters-inlaw Helen and Bonnie and numerous nieces and nephews plus her three children, Jean, Jim and Joan and their spouses, Dick, Pam, and Ken. Dick and Jean have Robert Rex, David Dawson, James Richard and Elizabeth Jean Husted, (and their children’s spouses: Leslie, Addison Ann, Jennifer Suzanne, and Scott Brian). Jim and Pam have a son, Joseph Patrick Dawson Joan and Ken have Chad Abraham and spouse, Stacy. Her great grandchildren are, Evan David, William Richard, Samuel James, Grace Elizabeth, Sophie Mabel, Greta Lynn, Alexander Preston, Emily Grace, Kathryn Renée, Cole Joshua Robert, Benjamin James Abigail Ann Husted, Cole Dawson McGinn, Dillon Scott McGinn and Drew Samuel McGinn. Her family truly believes an angel raised us. Our parents were part of that Great Generation that Tom Brokaw stated. May we perpetuate the love, values, service, and religious walk and be productive citizens to our country. The family will scatter her ashes on the burial plot designed for her and her husband, Joseph Carl. Accommodations are pending if the weather is not conducive to a graveside gathering. Gertrude is preceded in death by her parents, DW and Mary, her husband, Joseph Carl and siblings; William Henry, Ethel May, Otto Elmo, Clarance, Emmett, Evalyn, Curtis and Mary Jo., niece Peggy, nephews James and Otto.

Tools For Safe Teen Driving By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent

October is National Teen Safe Driving month. To help teen drivers and their parents, State Farm this week is making available academically-based interactive teen driver training tool equipping parents to be more engaged in teaching their teens to drive. The new tool, Road Trips™, is a web-based tool to help parents build practice drives, log progress and increase communication with their teen. Through this tool, parents receive tip sheets on critical driving skills in addition to three-minute tutorials on how to teach these skills. Parents also can track and log required parent-supervised driving hours, skills learned, and rate the driving performance of their teens. Another tool, Road Aware™ provides teens with a safe platform to develop and hone their hazard perception skills as drivers, without exposing them to crashes. Road Aware encourages deep processing by asking teens to visualize where hidden risks are located, rather than simply showing them the risk. This engagement increases the likelihood that these lessons will be transferred to long-term memory and practiced on the road. These tools and more are available on State Farm’s Teen Driver Safety website. The tools are free and available to anyone. You don’t have to be a State Farm customer to use them. I hope you’ll share these tools, and your experiences, with teen drivers you know to help them prepare for their journey. Be a role model to teens by practicing what you preach behind the wheel. Save travels! For more information about teen driver safety and tools for new drivers, visit

School Lunches... Continued from page 4 site whatsnew.htm. What are some concerns about the new rules? Complaints about the school lunch rules have been numerous and have included a humorous parody posted on YouTube. These complaints have ranged from not getting enough food to eat, not liking the food offered and being too expensive for school foodservice to manage. On the positive side, the new school lunch rules have encouraged school districts to team up with local chefs to upgrade their menus. The new rules have encouraged the food industry to offer more healthful, tasteful foods. Additionally, the new rules have introduced new healthful food choices to students that have not had that opportunity in the past. In fact, some school districts have reported an increase in meals consumed since the new changes. What can I do if my child refuses to eat the new school meals? First, ask your child if the problem is with the choice of foods being of-

fered or how the food is prepared. If the problem is with how the food is prepared, contact your school and see if changes can be made. Some school districts have cut back so much on their foodservice that they made need to hire extra help or current workers may need to have more training. If this is the case, there are resources that can help school. If your child dislikes the food choices of more fruits, vegetables, and whole grain products, then you may need to discuss with your child the health benefits of eating these foods. Anytime changes are made to something as personal as our food choices, it causes controversy. The new school meal requirements are no exception. While we may not be happy with some of the food choices, let’s not forget what the new requirements want to achieve. That is healthier children. For more information about nutrition and health, please contact your local University of Missouri Extension office.

effective breast cancer-fighting organization in the world, and is doing the most to help people with breast cancer today and works tirelessly to find cures to end the disease tomorrow. The Society has spent more on breast cancer research than on any other cancer, and has played an important part in many major breast cancer research breakthroughs in the past century, including demonstrating that mammography is an effective screening test for breast cancer, the development of tamoxifen and herceptin, and knowledge that genetics, poor diet, lack of exercise, and moderate drinking increase a person’s cancer risk. The Society also offers newly diagnosed women and those living with breast cancer a variety of programs and services to help them in their breast cancer experience. • The Reach to Recovery program helps newly diagnosed patients cope with their breast cancer experience. Reach to Recovery volunteers offer the unique understanding, support, and hope from the perspective of someone who has survived breast cancer. • The Look Good Feel Better program helps breast cancer patients manage the physical side

effects of treatment. Patients gain beauty techniques to help improve their self-esteem and quality of life, but also a sense of support, confidence, courage and community with other cancer patients in the program. • The Hope Lodge program offers patients and their caregivers free lodging for those receiving treatment far from home. • The Society offers free information to help with treatment decisions and access to its programs 24/7 through 1-800-227-2345 and The American Cancer Society’s affiliate advocacy organization, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action NetworkSM (ACS CAN), continues to fight back against breast cancer by working to increase funding for the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) that provides low-income, uninsured and underinsured women access to mammograms and Pap tests. Current funding only enables the program to serve less than one in five eligible women ages 40 to 64 nationwide. ACS CAN encourages anyone touched by this disease to let Congress know that support for the NBCCEDP is important and

that an increase in funding for this program is vital to its continuation.

Paris Elementary received a one time $1,000 grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation to participate in the Discover Nature School “Nature Unleashed” program. Elementary Teacher Marie Ebbesmeyer is implementing the program with all the fifth graders at Paris Elementary School. They were able to purchase thermometers, bug magnifiers and viewers, field guides and other various supplies with the grant money. The students will also be going on a field experience trip to

the Frank Russell Demonstration Area on Friday, Oct. 12 as part of this grant. The field trip portion of the grant is renewable each year. In this unit the students have been learning about Missouri ecosystems, specifically the forest, prairie, and pond. They have been observing and recording information from the outdoor classroom area as well as participating in a vari-

ety of nature games and activities. Many of the students have worked together to create bird feeders from recycled materials in an attempt to attract more birds to our schoolyard ecosystem. Their field trip will expose the students to the pond and prairie ecosystem where they can observe and identify plants and animals that they have discussed in class.

Area SPORTS Steven Hayhurst totals over 210 yards in 34-26 Homecoming victory over Slater

Monroe County Appeal, Paris, Mo. •

Defense has four players with double digit tackles

The Paris Coyotes played with heart versus Slater on their Homecoming night game. It was like a heavyweight fight – uppercut by Slater scores a 6-0 lead; body blows by Paris ties the score on a 39 yard Slater Stone romp knocking aside Wildcats like flies to pay dirt. Another blow to the midsection by Slater on a quarter ending long run puts them up 12-6. Paris answers early second quarter with a stinging quarterback keeper for 3-yards by Steven Hayhurst. After the Hayhurst kick Paris led for the first time 13-12. Slater answers with another drive and score to lead 20-13. Justin Wolfe answers with punishing runs culminating in a 3 yard run, nay run over Wildcats and Paris closed the gap 20-19 at the half. The third quarter or round was all Coyotes as their defense stiffened and their offense marched downfield with quarterback Steven Hayhurst faking right and running left behind a solid wall of blockers 25 yards for the Paris lead. Justin Wolfe plowed over players into the end zone for the two pointer and Paris led 27-20. Slater scored early fourth quarter but missed the kick and Paris never trailed again 27-26. Hayhurst took the ball in his hands and with Stone and Wolfe marched down the field (the Coyotes had a total

of 301 yards on the ground). Hayhurst then ended the scoring with a 32 yard run and with his PAT Paris took the final lead 34-26. Offensively, Hayhurst passed for 62 yards and rushed for 151 for over 210 yards of offense generated. Stone rushed for 92 yards and Wolfe added a 70 yard effort. Stone led the team in receiving with two grabs for 43 yards. Wolfe added three receptions for 19 yards. Defensively, Kole Berry led the team in tackles with 14 while Wolfe, Stone and Zac Baladenski each added double digit tackles. Laine Forest added to team leading interceptions with a pick and Hayhurst added two thefts while Wolfe had a fumble recovery. Scoring timeline Slater scores first on 17 yard run, 6-0 early first quarter. 39-yard Slater Stone touchdown run, PAT no good. Paris ties Slater 6-6 late first quarter. Slater scores on a 65-yard run at end of first quarter, Slater 12 Paris 6 Steven Hayhurst 3 yard TD run, Hayhurst PAT, Paris 13-12 over Slater, 7:16 left in half. Slater 27 yard touchdown run, 2-point conversion good 4:40 left in half Slater 20 Paris 13. Justin Wolfe 3 yard run for TD Kick no good Slater 20 Paris 19 less than a minute in half.

Madison edges Paris 3-0 in softball districts The Paris Lady Coyotes faced the Madison Lady Panthers in the first round of district action in Sturgeon on Wednesday, Oct. 3. Both pitchers, Kayla Langerud and Angela Purdy were strong on the mound with double-digit strikeouts for the contest. Langerud gave up a three spot in the first inning and after a second inning Jessica Stoebe single set down the next 17 Madison batters. She also struck out 11 Lady Panthers while Purdy punched put 12 Lady Coyotes and only allowed five Lady Coyote base runners. In the first and pivotal inning, Jessica Stoebe stroked a single to center. Samantha LeGrand and Angela Purdy walked to load the bases. Jami Westfaul ripped a single to right and Stoebe scored the only run the Lady Panthers would need. Allie Dunkin followed with a liner than fell over the second baseman’s head and plated two runs for a 3-0 Madison lead. Dede Bounds and Josey Ball each had singles for the Lady Coyotes. “I can’t say enough about how tough our girls were this year,”

said Coach Bryant Jones. “When we started this season in August we knew we would have our work cut out for us. Early in the season we were not a very good team. We weren’t very good with our decision-making and didn’t make any plays on defense for our pitcher. As the season progressed the girls just kept working. We got beat up pretty good early in the season by some really good teams. It would have been easy to just be content with who we were and play out the season. But, the girls didn’t do that. They had great attitudes and a great work ethic all season. We ended the season playing our best ball, we won five of our last 6 games going into districts and beat a really good Paris team in the opening round 3-0. I wish we could have found a way to win Thursday night. Silex is one of the best teams in the state; they were 17-1 coming into districts. For our girls to be able to compete with them (lost 5-0), and make them beat us, instead of giving away runs is a really nice accomplishment for us.”

The Postal Service will hold a meeting to answer questions and provide additional information about POST Plan. At the meeting, local management will share the results of the survey and answer questions. Although survey results will be known and shared, the Postal Service will not make a final decision regarding this office until after the public meeting. This will enable the Postal Service to obtain all community input and opinions, from both the surveys and the meeting before making a final decision. Below are the options that the Postal Service is considering. If you did not receive a survey and would like to fill one out, surveys are available at the counter. 1. Keep the office open, based on actual office workload. In the case of HOLLIDAY PO, hours would be reduced from 6.75 hours each weekday to 4 hours per weekday. Current Saturday hours will not change as a result of POST Plan and access to your delivery receptacles will not be impacted by POST Plan. 2. Conduct a discontinuance study for the office and offer roadside mailbox delivery. Retail and delivery service would be provided through a rural carrier. Mail delivery points will be established and customers can purchase most postal services through the carrier or other alternate access points. 3. Conduct a discontinuance study for the office and find a suitable alternative location operated by a contractor, usually at a local business. When businesses are found that meet the criteria, these establishments are contracted through the U.S. Postal Service and offer stamps and flat rate products with service hours generally more expansive than what the local Post Office will be able to offer. 4. Conduct a discontinuance study for the office and provide P.O. Box service via another nearby Post Office and relocate P.O. Box delivery to that Post Office.
