Guide to Southern Boone County 2022 Edition Published By: Boone County Journal Ashland Mo. 65010, Gene Rhorer


Hartsburg By: Ernie Wren Hartsburg, MO is probably best known locally for the annual “Pumpkin Festival” in October with the many different types of crafts and food, along with a fun parade, and thousands of participants. The mention of Hartsburg may also bring thoughts of enjoying live music and great food at “The Burg,” or a refreshing drink at the “Hitching Post.” These are wonderful attractions in this small town, but there are many other adventures a family can enjoy in and around the Hartsburg community. Hartsburg has a long history. Luther and Aurelias Hart purchased several hundred acres in the bottom lands and started farming there in 1870. About this time, they sold rights-of-way to the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (MKT) which now makes up the Katy Trail. In 1893 a railroad station named “Hart City” was established, and the town was officially incorporated as Hartsburg in 1901. The town has been continually improved upon by the Progressive Committee, with bi-annual fundraisers that helps the city purchase streetlights, pave roads, install Christmas decorations, upgrade the park, and handle other needs as they came along. (https://www.visitcolumbiamo.com/directory/hartsburg-missouri/). According to the United States Census Bureau, which appears to vary from site to site, Hartsburg had a population of about 122 in 2011, and today hovers around 120. Next to the Katy Trail, one can find a nice bench upon to rest, children can play on playground equipment, and visitors can view the Katyrest Caboose in Hartsburg Park. For those wishing to camp overnight, there is the Hart Creek Retreat and the Hartsburg Trailhead which offer the opportunity to pitch tents. Close to the park is the Samuel E. Hackman Building, also referred to as the A.L. Barner Hardware Company Building, at 30 S. Second Street. It is a historic commercial building built in 1897 with an iron and frame storefront and is listed on the National Register of Historic

Places. This brings us to the Hart Creek Conservation area which is located about a mile or so outside of Hartsburg along the Hart Creek Road. The Missouri Department of Conservation states, “This area is 657-acres of managed forest, woodland, and bluff natural communities, with a few scattered oldfields. A multi-use hiking and bicycling trail runs through forested hills and limestone/ dolomite cliffs. The area features a wooden overlook, a two-acre fishing lake, and a primitive camping area accessible by the adjacent Katy Trail State Park. The area offers public hunting, fishing, wildlife watching opportunities.” Operating hours are 4am to 10pm. For those that like to fish the lake, you will find good fishing for bass, bluegill, and crappie, as well as a fair number of catfish. Another wonderful place to stop is the Lions Club Park on the outskirts of Hartsburg toward the river. It has a nice ball field, concessions, and playground equipment, and may remind you of “Field of Dreams” as it is nestled within crop fields. The Lions Club is quite active in the community, providing the recent fireworks shows, hosting fundraisers, and being a hub for local youth athletic events. Along with the Lions Club is the Hartsburg American Legion Post 424 which also provides fundraisers for special needs, along with being a community center for events. The hall is available for rent, and is a great place to host family reunions, birthdays, etc. One can find a bevy of events and activities by going to Facebook sites such as “Hartsburg Happenings,” “Hartsburg Farmers Market,” and of course the “Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival.” Or one can simply take a walk around the four-block square of downtown Hartsburg and just enjoy the quaint shops and peaceful scenery.

Hartsburg Missouri History

In the 1870’s Luther D. Hart and Aurelias B. Hart bought several hundred acres of land in the area and started farming. Soon they sold a right-of-way to the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, known as the MKT, or Katy. A railroad station named Hart City was established in 1893 and the town was officially incorporated as Hartsburg in 1901. It was a farming community of hard-working and religious immigrants. Electricity came to town in 1919, earlier than most Missouri communities. An electric cooperative was established in 1929. Fundraising was handled by the Progressive Committee, which is still in existence today. Twice a year, fall and spring fund raisers

help purchase street lights, pave the roads, install Christmas decorations, upgrade the park or whatever else the little town needs. Today the population hovers around 108. The town is home to two churches, two taverns, a winery, a cafe, an antique restoration business and, in the summer and fall, fresh produce stands. Often you’ll see a coffee can sitting on a picnic table and customers pay on the honor system. The Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival is held each year on the second Saturday and Sunday of October, which includes games, foods, and crafts. Each year during the festival tens of thousands come to eat and shop at the numerous venues and food booths.

Ashland City Hall 101 W Broadway 573-657-2091 WWW.ashlandmo.us info@ashlandmo.us Kyle Michel City Administrator kmichel@ashlandmo.us

Dorise Slinker Mayor mayor@ashlandmo.us New Ashland Mayor Dorise Slinker is excited for Ashland’s future for planned, quality growth. After a year of construction - a round-about and re-fitting the new city hall at Broadway and Main and the hunt for a new city administrator - Slinker says he is optimistic about overseeing quality growth in Ashland. “The new Amazon facility will be up and running soon and I think it will be the first of many,” Slinker said. The Amazon distribution center project puts as many as 300 trucks coming and going from the Cartwright Technology Park near the airport. “We are also working with Next Site, a commercial development advisory firm to help us locate more growth for that area, as well as the commercial site at Route Y and Highway 63. “I understand both sides of the ‘growth’ discussion,” Slinker said, “but as we’ve seen in recent years, growth is coming to Ashland - the key is to plan for growth. I understand we need wider roads, sidewalks and our schools are growing. But when we add jobs and tax dollars to the community, it can be a positive thing.” Ashland, located between Columbia and Jefferson City, reported 3,956 residents in the 2020 census a number that would now exceed 4,000 - and has tripled in growth in the past two decades. The city

includes 4.8 square miles, however that number is growing as well as the city is extending its boundaries as new housing projects take root. The City itself moved to a new home last year, purchasing the old YMCA facility at the corner of Broadway and Main Street. “It has worked out great,” Slinker said. “It is a great location with plenty of parking and can house our police department along with our city hall.” More recently, new City Administrator Kyle Michel came on board this spring. From the Des Moines area, Michel will bring a fresh perspective to the challenges of a growing Ashland. “He’s very smart and done a great job so far,” Slinker added. “I put a lot of faith in Kyle - in fact, I have a lot of confidence in all of the people in leadership positions in the City, - the police chief, maintenance department, water department and so on - and they will make my job a lot easier.” Slinker said that Ashland will continue to grow and he will embrace that growth. “We’re going to grow at least 5-percent population in the next several years and the east side commercial area will blossom,” he said, “and we need everyone to accept that growth - we need to plan for that growth.” (Author Bruce Wallace)

Mid-Mo Arts Alliance By: Tracy Titmus Did you know ? Arts and culture help cities attract tourists, diverse talent, bring about innovation and grow economy? Individuals benefit from art both physiologically and psychologically? Creativity makes people more tolerant of other points of view? Art-related industries contribute significantly to the overall economy? Art can be a powerful tool in developing a community’s youth. The latest data I could find on the Missouri Arts Council’s website states that in 2015, in the State of Missouri, 31,925 fulltime equivalent jobs were created and $805.6 million in salary was paid to residents. More than 21.4 million people attended arts & culture events produced by 49 Missouri organizations. Ashland gets to boast their very own arts organization in Mid-Missouri Arts Alliance. We are hosting an open house on July 8th so that you can find out more about our organization. Stop by and see what we are all

8

about and what you can do to help support our efforts. Besides the open house we have a couple of classes coming up in July both for youth and adults. See our ad or website for more information.

Southern Boone Chamber of Commerce

By: Bruce Wallace The Southern Boone Chamber of Commerce has grown in membership in the past two years since the pandemic shut down businesses. Now rolling with more than 100 businesses the past two years, the chamber’s growth is a reflection of a growing, vibrant business community. “It has been amazing to see the numbers of people who show up to the table each month at our meetings,” said incoming chamber president Dr. Tim Roth. “We regularly have 30-or more people and our special events have two or three times that many people attending.” Roth, the Assistant Superintendent of Southern Boone Schools, said that while business everywhere slowed considerably during the pandemic, the Southern Boone Chamber worked to help local businesses be creative in order to draw in customers and maintain their businesses. “We all really got behind the “Second Saturday,” Roth said, “it is a good promotion to celebrate local businesses and it gained community support.” Roth said his goal as the chamber’s leader this year is to continue to grow the membership, encourage even

more support to local business and grow the chamber’s recently initiated scholarship fund. “Everyone benefits from the partnerships as a member of the chamber of commerce,” Roth said. “As a school district, the business community is a key place where we can build relationships and that’s why I’ve been involved in recent years. It’s a place where we can communicate to community leaders.” Roth said the benefits of chamber membership - open to Boone County businesses as well as individuals - have been magnified due to the pandemic. “We all saw the benefit of networking and local businesses supporting each other throughout the pandemic,” Roth said. That networking - at monthly meetings, special events or ribbon

cuttings - does not change now that Southern Boone businesses are fully open. Chamber membership rates are based on the size of the business and more information can be obtained from Roth at the school district building, 657-2147, or Treasurer Tracy Banning at Angell and Co. 6572112 or Chamber Ambassador Jesse Wheadon at South County Realty at 657-4373. The Southern Boone Chamber meets the second Thursday of each month at 8 a.m. at the Southern Boone Schools district office, the meetings are open to all who are interested.

Eagle Pride By: Bruce Wallace Southern Boone Eagles Pride is more than just wearing school colors to an athletic contest and cheering for the local team. Eagle Pride includes getting students excited about achieving their highest potential scores in the classroom, fund raising for local as well as national charities and volunteering to make a difference in the community. It all starts when the youngest Eagles attend the Primary School. “It starts with just getting together in those monthly assemblies as a school and teaching kids to have pride in their school and how to take care of it,” said SoBoCo School Board member and retired teacher/coach Crystal Branch. “We have fund raisers at each school, for instance, to raise money for the playground - kids doing things for their own school building.” Branch said that effort fosters pride - in students as well as parents. “Eagle Pride is having pride in the school district, but also pride in our community. It’s the community coming together to support the district and to support the kids.” Branch said it is not unusual to see parents of students who have graduated from the district return to athletic events or school district events to support the Eagles. The community responds to the students’ efforts by funding district-wide efforts for facilities through bond issues, fund raisers and scholarship efforts. From sponsoring youth activities ranging from basketball to art classes and more than $500,000 in scholarships annually, the Southern Boone business community also plays and enthusiastic role in the drive for Eagle Pride.

Southern Boone County Fire Protection District

The Southern Boone Fire Protection District recently cut the ribbon and opened its fifth fire station in the district. The addition of Station 21 on Highway MM just west of Andrew Sapp Rd means that nearly everyone in the district will live within five miles of a fire station. Housing starts west of Ashland precipitated the need for the fire station, which will include a tanker truck a grass rig for natural cover fires and a boat for rescues on the Missouri River. The new station will also serve as a training area for firefighters for natural cover fires. The new station was approved by voters in the April 2020 election bond issue, which will also purchase three new tanker trucks and a new fire engine for the district. More than 30 volunteers are active firefighters in the Southern Boone Fire District, led by Fire Chief Jim Bullard and Assistant Chief Tom Redford. Covering 125 square miles in Southern Boone County, the district is served by four existing stations, including: Hartsburg,

Mount Pleasant Road, Henry Clay Blvd and a station nearby the Columbia Regional Airport. Living quarters are provided for volunteers at some of the stations. Residents live in those quarters for free as long as they respond to fire calls. The district also pays a small stipend, similar to mileage, for those responding to calls and provides shift pay for two volunteers for a 12-hour shift. Those volunteers are required to stay within the district and respond to each call as available during their shift. The district reports that this practice has improved response times, especially for medical calls - the most common call for service. The fire district is managed by a volunteer elected board of five members: Terry Hilgedick, president; Brandon Glascock, treasurer; Lorie Klippel, secretary; Alicia Ozenberger and Nick Glascock. They meet the second Tuesday each month at 7 p.m. at the training center, east of 63 on Rt Y. The public is invited to attend the open meeting.

Many have recently started moving into the newly completed Baptist Home of Ashland Many seniors have enjoyed participating in YMCA classes and/or joining the local Folks on Spokes bike riding group.

Emergency services

Area served by ambulance, 911 services The Southern Boone area is served by a University of Missouri Hospital ambulance service and its EMTs. In 2006, the community banded together to raise the funds to build an ambulance base, located on Henry Clay just south of the fire station. The ambulance base is staffed 24/7. Paramedics are employees of University Hospital, however, they will transport patients to the hospital of their choice in Columbia or Jefferson City. “Having an ambulance in Ashland decreases the amount of time for medical personnel to reach a patient in the south county community,” said Southern Boone Fire Protection District Board member Jim Cunningham. University Hospital medical personnel say that the ambulance service in not just about saving lives, it is about improving outcomes. “We all have better outcomes from a heart attack patient by reaching that victim faster,” said manager of emergency services Brenda Jensen. Southern Boone firefighters also provide emergency assistance and are often the first on the scene, whether it is a medical emergency, car crash or other emergency. Firefighters are trained to stabilize victims and take harge of the scene as emergency personnel arrive. Recently, Boone County residents voted to pay for improved and enhanced 911 services. Boone County has started serving its residents with additional personnel

and equipment. The County serves its residents from a new emergency services facility at the Boone County Sheriff’s Department campus. For an emergency, call 911. For non-emerg situations, call 311.

2022 State Champs

By: Ernie Wren “We are the champions, my friends. And we'll keep on fighting 'til the end.” These famous lyrics from Queen’s “We Are the Champions” could not be more appropriate than for the 2022 Class 4 Missouri baseball champions, the Southern Boone High School Eagles! After opening post-season play with a 6-0 win over Hallsville, MO, the road became a lot tougher for the Eagles. A 3-1 win over private school John Burroughs was just the beginning of what would lead to an amazing, and heart thumping, final four appearance for the first time in Southern Boone’s history. Southern Boone’s 6-5 victory over the Marshall baseball team in 11 evenings (note that high school baseball games are typically seven innings) was a nail biter from beginning to end. Taking a 2-run lead over the Eagles in the second inning, the Marshall Owls continued to expand that lead until the seventh inning in which the Eagles tied the game 5-5 just in time to take it into extra innings. Twice the Eagles had bases loaded and ended the innings without scores until the bottom of the 11th inning, with rain falling, did they put it away with a walk off run. The win over Marshall placed the Eagles in the championship game against the Logan-Rogersville team which had defeated its previous three opponents with a combined score of 38-3. Logan-Rogersville had also won their semi-championship 11-1 in 7 innings, giving them the advantage of resting their players. But one advantage that cannot be calculated is heart, determi-

nation and will to win. The state championship game ended the first inning with a 2-run lead for Logan-Rogersville. The Eagles would tie the game in the third inning 2-2 which would remain until the sixth inning in which the Eagles would explode for four runs making the game 6-2 in favor of the Eagles. No extra innings were needed for this game, as the Eagles held tight and finished the game with an 8-3 state championship win over the Logan-Rogersville Wildcats. Southern Boone Eagles baseball coach Brian Ash had plenty to say about the first ever Southern Boone Missouri baseball championship: “This Championship run this year has been nothing but remarkable. The team has such great leadership on our upperclassman, our underclassman, followed suit on everything. Preparation, attendance in all activities in the summer and winter workouts, weight room, and other team functions..” Coach Ash went on to detail what it takes to win a state championship. Championships do not happen by luck, or overnight preparation. A planned schedule that would prepare the players for post-season play started off with playing Blair Oaks, Fatima, and Fulton within the first 2 weeks of the season, and winning three important games which impacted district seeding, putting the Eagles in position as the #1 seed in districts. This followed with traveling to Oklahoma and Kansas, staying in hotels and dealing with the travel experiences that would prepare the team for time management and itineraries each player had to fol-

low. This helped pave a path of what it was going to be like in the state playoffs. Coach Ash also praised the team in that, “This team has no egos so to speak. Each player did their job, played the role, and executed it to perfection. Pitching and defense was our mainstay and strength. Timely hitting and good baserunning helped create a very potent offense. Our seniors Carter Karotka, Aiden Andert, Tate John, Braeden Hawkins, Hayden Steelman, and Bradly Smith provided leadership, toughness, and never quit mentality. This run to the state championship created excitement within our program, school, community, and all the younger athletes that High School sports is important and can bring people together. It has also, allowed our younger players on the team to experience something they will hopefully put the work in to make this experience happen again in the future.” In the process of winning a state championship, the Eagles also set the state record for Triples in an inning (5), Set the state record for consecutive triples in an inning with four vs. Arkansas City, KS, and set a school record in wins in a season 34. The team’s ERA of 1.51 is phenomenally low. This was the first district title in 20 years, in which the team also set a record for hits in a season (300) and ended the conference play at 7-0. This is Southern Boone’s fourth state championship following girls softball, girls track, and boys soccer.
