R-2 directors approve ‘planned deficit spending budget’ for 2012-13 BY DAVE MARNER Managing Editor With state revenue for education expected to be lower again, R-2 Board of Education directors on Monday approved what is being termed a “planned deficit spending budget.” Revenues are anticipated from all sources at $17,974,290 while expected expenditures are listed at $18,609,561. R-2 Superintendent Dr. Russ Brock said the budget was based on a “planned spending of fund balances.” The budget for the 2012-13 school year reflects the board’s decision to spend up to $635,271 from reserves to help offset funding from the state formula which is expected to be 92 percent of full allocation. “It’s a planned deficit,” said Brock noting the district expects to end the school year with a reserve fund balance of 27.67 percent — down from 32 percent at the end of the 2011-12 term. “We’re tapping into the reserves. We had built up our reserves into the 32-percent range,” said Brock. Figures provided by the district show an anticipated ending balance of $11,028,850 when the current school year concludes next June. Of those reserves, $5,715,539 is restricted for debt service. The Capital Projects fund is expected to retain a $760,340 balance while $4,552,970 is designated as the carryover balance for the Incidental Fund. In Capital Projects, the district expects to bring in $613,658 to add to the carryover balance. It plans to spend $1,402,868 including $583,338 for a district-wide lighting, heating and cooling control system which is designed to produce energy savings over a 10-year period to pay for itself. The board on Monday approved a low-interest loan program through Community Bank of Owensville, a Branch of Maries County Bank, to finance the project. Work is expected to be completed by early December, said Brock. The Incidental Fund ended 2011-12 with a balance of $5,181,396. From the Incidental Fund will come a designated $160,000 transfer as allowed into the Transportation Fund. Also, the district is allowed an annual 7-percent transfer from the fun which is designated for capital projects. A transfer of $459,605 will also be made from the fund, as required, to support the Teachers Fund. “The deficit is really coming from the use of Funds 1 (General Fund) and 2 (Special Revenue Fund) total,” said Brock noting the second fund relates to “certified employees involved in administration and instruction.” The Capital Fund, he noted begins with a fund balance of any money not previously spent and funds allocated for projects from the annual 7-percent transfer out of the Incidental (operations) Fund. The transfer from Transportation and the 7-percent which is allowed will leave $760,340 available in the budget to begin the 2013-14 term. Brock noted the district is seeing some benefits from having 62 additional students enrolled during the 2011-12 school year. The district will learn Sept. 26 if enrollment has show additional growth. Next Wednesday is the official counting day for school districts across Missouri. “Preliminary figures show, again, a little bit of growth this year,” said Brock. “We can use it. Our enrollment is better than we have been in the last three years.” Average daily attendance across the district “remains strong” at 95 percent, Brock noted. In his budget report to the Board of Education, Brock wrote: “While the budget reflects a reduction of revenue when compared to past years, expenditure reduction efforts approved by the board during 2010 and 2011 have adjusted expenditures in the General Fund and Special Revenue Fund in order to maintain a healthy balance while experiencing a reduction in revenue. Although the overall anticipated expenditures for FY 2013 are greater than projected revenues, this is due to the unexpected increase in See R-2 on Page 3

Emhart Glass, Owensville plant, celebrate 100th anniversary BY DAVE MARNER Managing Editor Before gathering for a meal together on Friday to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Emhart Glass, employees in Owensville heard words of praise on the quality of their work from Edward Munz, vice president of corporate development. He noted their work was know worldwide for its “high quality and durability.” Together, the 53 employees of the global firm which turns 100-years-old this year viewed an historic DVD produced about the refractory and glass manufacturing industry. Brief shots, from black-and white still photographs, captured longtime employees John Massey and Kurt Schulte at their stations “sometime in the 1980s,” Schulte would say later. Or, “back when I had hair.” Andrew Purvis, site manager in Owensville, noted they all owed their careers in the glass manufacturing business to the genius of Karl E. Peiler who went to work for Hartford-Fairmont in 1912. He held 147 patents in the U.S. (and numerous others in different 17 countries) related to the glass machinery business, Purvis noted in his introduction to the firm’s biographical movie. Munz, “Ed from Switzerland” as he introduced himself, helped hand out copies of the firm’s new book “A Century of Perfect Packaging” which chronicles their industry and the history of Emhart Glass. Each employee also received a commemorative glass carafe´packaged in a special wooden case.

Munz, and his wife, To, were joined at the event by Cecily Emond, human resource manager for Emhart’s United States operations, and her husband, Howie. They also joined in with the Owensville employees for a group photograph. An estimated 250 people attended an open house Friday at the Owensville plant Emhart Glass plant under cool and overcast conditions. “The unique thing about the plant is its people,” said John Bartel, former owner of the plant in its days as Laclede Christy. “The employees here are unbelievable. Every guy we hired has been a crafts-person. That same philosophy comes through today.” Bartel bought the former H.F. Porter glass manufacturing plant in St. Louis. When he moved the plant to his childhood hometown he “resurrected the Laclede Christy” name. He sold the manufacturer of refractories to Emhart Glass in 1980. He credited the local chamber of commerce for leasing him the site in the late 1960s with the option to own it on payments. He owned the plant by the time he sold it off. He recalled that his mother sewed shoes on the third floor in the plant’s days as a Hamilton-Brown Shoe facility. Clay pots were also manufactured in the plant at one time. He retired to Rhineland, Mo. Adrian Scego, who worked at the plant for 23 years, was one of several retirees who took a guided tour of the plant on Friday along with his wife, Jackie. Scego and fellow former co-workers Charlie Brauks and Don Enke were among those See 100th on Page 22

Bid awarded for new 6.6-mile, 4-lane stretch of U.S. Highway 50 into Linn JEFFERSON CITY — A construction bid to bring four lanes of U.S. 50 traffic from U.S. 63 to Linn was awarded Sept. 12. Work to build a new four-lane highway on U.S. 50 in Osage County will begin in October. Under the project awarded by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission, approximately 6.6 miles of U.S. 50, from the 50/63 junction to County Road 604 west of Linn, will be relocated and widened to four lanes. The project also includes building two bridges as a result of the new highway alignment. The $25.5 million project was awarded to Iron Mountain Construction Services. Work is expected to begin in late October and to be completed by September 2014. As part of a separate project that will be bid at a later date, the old section of U.S. 50 from Route A in Loose Creek to County Road 604 will be resurfaced and turned over to Osage County. Lane closures are expected to be minimal during construction because the highway will be built on a new alignment. “The new realignment will remove many of the hills, curves and access points drivers currently experience, greatly


improving safety and traffic flow on this stretch of Highway 50,” said Nicole Hood, design engineer for the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Central District. Hood also noted the project is one of the last new major construction projects planned for the central Missouri area. A severe decline in funding for transportation means MoDOT is unable to tackle many of the larger projects that enhance the state’s transportation system. The commission also approved a $1 million project to resurface two sections of U.S. 50 in Cole County and the Dix Road bridge over 50 in Jefferson City. The westbound lanes of 50 from Apache Flats to St. Martins will be resurfaced, as will the eastbound lanes from St. Martins to Country Club Drive. The work will last about a week and will take place at night, from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. The Dix Road bridge will take about two days to resurface. That work, which will close one lane of the bridge at a time, will also take place at night, from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.; APAC Missouri, the contractor on the resurfacing projects, is scheduled to begin the work in early October and be finished by Nov. 15.

MRPC issues report on industrial park improvements with CDBG, city funds ST. JAMES — Meramec Regional Planning Commissioner staff have issued a report on the Community Development Block Grant the agency prepared and administered for the city of Owensville. Recently completed improvements to roadways in the city of Owensville’s industrial park paved the way for more than 60 new jobs and potential future growth, the MRPC report notes. The project was completed with the help of a Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) as local printing company RR Donnelley expanded the products created at the Owensville facility. Before beginning its expansion, RR Donnelley noted that the roads in the industrial park were not built for the heavy truck traffic they were receiving — approximately 11,000 trucks equaling 300 million pounds of freight load from their facility alone on an annual basis. The expansion project was estimated to increase those numbers to 18,000 trucks and 500 million pounds of freight annually. The industrial park was constructed in the early 1980s when trucks were smaller, loads were lighter and rail service was still available. “We are getting a lot of positive comments on the new road,” said City Administrator John Tracy. “Before it was just so full of holes that the trucks couldn’t hardly get in and out…It was beyond repair, and we had to replace it.” A CDBG grant in the amount of $566,389 combined with $140,866 from the city of Owensville allowed the road to be rebuilt to better handle the heavy loads it bears. “We couldn’t have financed it without the help of the grant,” said Mayor Dixon Somerville. The new road not only allowed RR Donnelley to proceed with the expansion efforts that brought new jobs to the area, it also made the industrial park more suitable for potential future manufacturing tenants that would bring heavy truck traffic to the park. “I would say the improvement is 10-fold,” Sommerville said.

Going South BY BOB MCKEE

Good money after bad

Guest Commentary Religion and the election of 2012 By Dr. Gary Scott Smith Religious issues have played a significant role in numerous presidential elections, as they are in 2012. In 1800, his opponents accused Thomas Jefferson of atheism and trying to undermine the republic’s Christian foundation. In 1928 and 1960, many Americans were alarmed by the Catholic faith of Al Smith and John F. Kennedy, who they feared would be more loyal to the pope than the Constitution. In 1896, 1976, and 1980, professed evangelical Protestants competed for votes. In 2000, George W. Bush’s faith was a major issue, especially after he declared Jesus to be his favorite philosopher. Barack Obama frequently discussed his faith journey and used biblical language to defend his social policies. In 2012, a key issue is how much support religious conservatives, especially evangelicals, will provide for Mitt Romney. When campaigning for the 2008 Republican nomination, Romney gave a speech in Texas to address concerns about his Mormon faith. (About six million Mormons live in the United States, more than the total number of Muslims and Jews combined.) While admitting that his “church’s beliefs about Christ may not all be the same as those of other faiths,” Romney affirmed “that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of mankind.” Attempting to appeal to Americans holding a variety of religious views, he expressed his appreciation for features of Catholicism, evangelicalism, Pentecostalism, Lutheranism, Judaism, and Islam. Refusing to distance himself from his religious convictions as some urged him to do, Romney declared, “I believe in my Mormon faith and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers — I will be true to them and to my beliefs.” However, like Kennedy in 1960, he promised that “no authorities of my church…will ever exert influence on presidential decisions. Their authority…ends where the affairs of the nation begin.” As the governor of Massachusetts, Romney asserted, “I did not confuse the particular teachings of my church with the obligations of the office and of the Constitution — and…I would not do so as president.” In contrast to his approach in 2008, in the 2012 campaign, until the Republican National Convention, Romney rarely referred to himself as a Mormon or connected his policies with his faith. In an effort to help voters identify more with him, Romney took the calculated risk of having his supporters discuss his Mormon background and commitments and his work as a lay pastor in Boston for 14 years. Pastor Grant Bennett testified that Romney labored tirelessly to assist sick

and needy members. “Mitt prayed with and counseled church members seeking spiritual direction, single mothers raising children, couples with marital problems, youth with addictions, immigrants separated from their families and individuals whose heat had been shut off,” Bennett explained. Church members Ted and Pat Oparowski described Romney as a compassionate man who regularly visited their cancer-stricken son and preached his eulogy after the 14-year-old died. How prospective voters view Romney’s faith and the way it may affect his work as president could play a decisive role in what appears to be a close election. This issue is especially important to the millions of American evangelicals who have been a major force in American politics since the late 1970s. Most evangelicals view Mormonism as an alternative religion rather than a Christian denomination. They have more in common theologically with Obama, who claims to accept many of the doctrines they affirm. Moreover, much more frequently than Romney, Obama has used biblical teaching to support his policies, especially in aiding the poor. However, many evangelicals are repulsed by Obama’s views on abortion and homosexual marriage and his administration’s mandate to provide contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs as part of health care services. Undoubtedly speaking for many evangelicals, former Arkansas Governor and Baptist pastor Mike Huckabee declared at the convention, “I care far less… where Mitt Romney takes his family to church, than I do about where he takes this country.” Although Obama is a “self-professed evangelical,” Huckabee added, he supports changing the definition of marriage, “believes that human life is disposable … at any time in the womb,” and requires “people of faith…to bow their knees to the God of government and violate their faith…to comply with what he calls, health care.” In a recent issue of “Christianity Today,” Stephen Mansfield, who wrote a very positive spiritual biography of Obama, argued that voting for Romney is “a moral option for followers of Jesus Christ…even though his Latter-day Saint religion is far from orthodox Christianity” and his presidency would give “heightened visibility and influence” to Mormonism. Richard Mouw, the president of evangelical Fuller Theological Seminary, insisted that in 12 years of discussions with Mormon scholars and leaders and “extensive reading of Mormon literature,” he had found nothing to keep him from voting for Romney. For them, Romney’s positions on key issues are more important than his Mormonism. See Religion on Page 3


When it comes to U.S. foreign policy and diplomacy “the big picture” is often fuzzy and out of focus. When it comes to millions, nay billions, of U.S. dollars shipped by the boatloads to foreign governments that disdain and denigrate America, the screen goes blank — there is no picture at all. That’s my way of thinking which by no means guarantees it’s the logical or intelligent way to look at how our own government sees things. Personally I prefer my simplistic view: you don’t give money to people who kill American soldiers (or American civilians). If you feel that you must give them something, make it retribution in sufficient doses to discourage rudeness and bad behavior in the future. Apparently there are a lot of us who would like to see this made official U.S. policy but we all know it’s not going to happen. There really is a “big picture” that governs diplomacy and foreign relations among civilized societies. Readers are welcome to come up with their own definition of civilized. That said, there are times when it seems that the goal of the “big picture” foreign relations policy is to make the world over in our own image. Almost everyone I’ve talked to knows this is not going to happen — ever. Yet Congress, the president and the State Department keep chasing this dream as has prior Congresses, presidents and State Department staffs. Last week a young U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed at the U.S. Embassy in Libya. In Egypt, protesters breached a U.S. Embassy compound, tore down the U.S. flag and burned it. Protests against the U.S. continued this week in several other

countries in the Middle East, all over a poorly made video that allegedly made fun of Mohammed, the revered founder of Islam, a religion Muslims around the world follow. Granted, you don’t pull on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, and you don’t insult another man’s religious beliefs. But people who do don’t always expect to be killed for doing it. They certainly don’t expect someone far removed from the insult and who had absolutely nothing to do with it to be killed as the pro tem insulter. The U.S. has poured billions of dollars in aid to the very same countries that kill our diplomats and burn our flag. Billions will continue to pour into those countries even now in an effort “to win the hearts and minds of the people.” That has been tried before but, again in my opinion, seldom works or achieves the intended results. Perhaps a lot of people of our generation are too jaded or simply skeptical these days about the possibility of changing the world. Some of us tried it in the 60s and it didn’t work out too well. Besides the terrible loss of American lives in Iraq (4,500) and Afghanistan (2,100), we have sent billions of dollars in aid to those two countries according to figures released in July 2011. Billions. As of last year, Iraq had received $21 billion in U.S. aid; Afghanistan, $19 billion. And another $16 billion is earmarked this year for Afghanistan. Operation Iraqi Freedom did get rid of a murderous dictator and establish a quasi-democracy in that country. Operation Enduring

Freedom, the longest war in U.S. history, gutted al Qaeda and eventually led to the death of the mastermind behind the 9-11 tragedies. But from news reports it appears that both countries are returning to doing things the way they have done them for thousands of years. Now U.S. troops train Afghan police to take over peace keeping duties in 2014 only to have some of those they’ve just issued weapons to turn them on our troops. So much for western influence. It is a generalization, of course, but in far too many countries that the U.S. sends millions of dollars to help the people, most of the money for that purpose seems to end up in some dictator’s Swiss bank account. The rest ends up fattening his henchmen’s bank accounts, not providing food and medical supplies to the ones needing it the most. A recent report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction underlines fears the huge aid surge of recent years has been mismanaged and will have little long term benefit. Large projects funded by the Afghanistan Infrastructure Fund were supposed to win over Afghans skeptical of the NATO coalition and Hamid Karzai’s government, by providing electricity, services and good roads. Keeping the new roads and power grids running will fall to Afghan departments which “have questionable capacity and lack the resources — financial and otherwise — necessary to fulfill these commitments.” In a separate report, the same watchdog said some US-funded Afghan border police bases had been largely abandoned, raising questions about the hand over to local forces. What did it all go for? Why?

Hometown Boy by Duane Dailey Photo book documents plight of prairie chicken Words fail me. So, I yield. Go read “Save the Last Dance: A Story of North American Grassland Grouse.” It’s a big coffee-table book about our prairie chickens with photos by Noppadol “Nop” Paothong and words by Joel Vance. If you’ve read the Missouri Conservationist magazine, you know both. Nop and Joel, two wizards in their crafts, outdid themselves. It’s a story of elusive wild chickens which will capture your heart. There are two stories to tell. There is a sad story of near silencing of booming by the Greater Prairie Chicken. And, a glad story of “Nop” who came to Missouri from Bangkok, Thailand, when he was 19. Here, he found his talent in documentary photojournalism — and preserving these spectacular birds that are cousins of our egg-laying hens. On 1940s spring mornings, walking to a one-room school, I’d hear booming of prairie chickens on a nearby mating ground, or lek. Those booms remain in my innards. I never saw them, just heard them. I didn’t even notice when I no longer heard them. Now I know their sad story. Then, there were thousands of them in our remaining open spaces. That was before soybeans when we had more grass. Now, 500 prairie chickens remain in Missouri. Three years ago, a remnant flock of 50 lived on Dunn Ranch in

Religious freedom protected by veto override By State Sen. Dan Brown Missouri 16th District My Senate colleagues and I on Sept. 12 voted 26-6 in favor of overriding the governor’s veto of Senate Bill 749. The legislation was originally filed in response to the president’s federal Affordable Health Care Act, which requires employers to offer health care services to employees, even if some of those services are against their moral or religious beliefs. As a result of the federal law, a number of employers decided not to offer health insurance plans at all, rather than violate their religious beliefs. The override of this veto results in many provisions in this law taking effect immediately. Other provisions found in the bill will take effect within 30 days of the override. I feel this legislation is necessary, because it prevents the government from infringing on our First Amendment rights. It’s important that we continue to strive to keep the government out of our lives and businesses and from forcing religious organizations into violating their beliefs simply to follow a law that disenfranchises their very core existence.

So much for western influence.

Harrison County. Now only four birds remain. Weather and predators have not been kind to this beautiful bird. Can they be saved? Nop and Joel help by telling their plight. I knew the birds from a distance, but knew not their losses. The birds must have open space. Every cedar and sapling intrudes. Prairie grasses, their old stomping grounds, have been displaced by crops and brush. Every power pole or phone tower attracts hawks to lurk over the leks. Nature Conservancy, Missouri Prairie Foundation, Department of Conservation and others work to preserve them. But, they need your help. The other eye-opening story is of a young man who grew up in a crowded Asian metropolis but found his way to a prairie patch near Golden City, Mo., to sit in a blind to photograph mating prairie chickens. The booming, which carries miles, affected Nop’s innards as well. The strutting and stomping birds intrigued the young photojournalist working for the Joplin Globe. I met Nop at a Missouri Photo Workshop in West Plains in 1999. He came to improve his photo-story skills. Thank goodness we did not distract him from his instincts in wildlife photography. Just look at monthly issues of the Conservationist to appreciate his talent. It takes patience, endurance, amazing eye and exquisite timing to record wildlife.

Capitol Perspectives A sad time in Missouri’s legislature

By Phill Brooks This year’s veto session was a sad time for me. It always is in evennumbered years. That’s because it was the last time I’ll see some of the legislators I’ve covered for years. For nearly one-quarter century, I’ve covered Democratic Sen. Tim Green. I’ve watched the St. Louis County electrician grow to become a leading budget expert in the legislature. In the House, he ended up chairing the Budget Committee. Yet, for all his power and seniority, Green remained humble. Plain-speaking, blunt and with sharp political instincts, he has been a valuable source. His Senate seat is just across from my seat at the press table. So, he’d sometimes violate Senate rules by joking with me from his desk during Senate sessions. Wednesday’s veto session may have been the last day I will see Tim Green. After 24 years in the legislature, term limits has forced him out of office. I will miss him as I’ll miss Chuck Purgason. The rural southern Missouri Republican was one of the most unique characters I’ve covered in the legislature. Back when he started in the House, he made history by getting acceptance that his cowboy bolo tie met the House rules that require men to wear ties in the chamber. Until Purgason, the only ties I had seen worn in the House or Senate were made of cloth — not cord. Purgason is the guy who made national news when in the middle of his campaign for the U.S. Senate two years ago he bragged about abandoning his remarkably unusual wig. It was done, he wrote in his official announcement, as a demonstration of “transparency,” to assure voters that “nothing will be swept under the rug on my watch.” If I remember correctly, he confessed to me it was done at his wife’s urging. He was a fun source to cover. Purgason was one of the purist fiscal conservatives I’ve covered, at times reminding me of Barry Goldwater. Back when Matt Blunt called on legislators to scale back Medicaid coverage, Purgason expressed frustration that Blunt blamed it on budget problems instead of bragging about cutting welfare. Part of what makes these statehouse source relationships unique is the close proximity we have with lawmakers during a legislative session of grueling and, at times, intense hours. There’s almost no way a legislator easily can avoid the media. We’re in the middle of the legislative process to a degree I never sensed during my brief time covering the U.S. Congress for National Public Radio. Unlike the U.S. House and Senate, here in Missouri we have access to the side areas of the chambers. And unlike Congress, state legislators are not insulated by near armies of staff. So, we get to know some of these folks we cover in the legislature almost as well as family. The departing Senate President Pro Tem Rob Mayer, Senate Democratic Leader Victor Callahan, House Democratic Leader Mike Talboy and the already-departed House Speaker Steve Tilley, are good examples of what is different between Congress and Missouri’s General Assembly. They bent over backward to help reporters — always accessible and honest. There were times when, frankly, I was surprised at just how candid they would get about legislative struggles and battles. I will miss them too. They help demonstrate how term limits have adversely affected the reporting efforts of statehouse reporters. It takes years to develop these kind of relationships. It takes time for a reporter to learn which politicians are consistently honest and which ones just try to manipulate us. Likewise, it also takes a news source time to develop trust in the integrity of a reporter. It takes time to gain confidence that the reporter really is someone who will keep his word when a promise is made for information to be off-the-record. As Missouri continues to move into an era of short-term, temporary legislators, I fear those kind of relationships that I found so critical in covering this place for you will become less frequent. I would be remiss, however, if

Owensville police said an 11-yearold girl crossing North Second from an alley across from West Walker Avenue pulled her bicycle directly into the path of a northbound 2012 Dodge driven by Lisa A. Coppedge, 43, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Police said Katlynn Roberts was struck by the car and thrown clear, according to a witness and riding companion, Bryan Baumbach, also 11, who was following her. Roberts was transported by Owensville Area Ambulance District personnel to Mercy Hospital Washington for treatment of moderate injuries. No citations were issued in the crash. A female motorist attempting to drive through the scene was issued city summonses for alleged failure to follow a lawful order and interfering with, or obstructing, a police investigation. Lisa Petering was given a Nov. 14 court date. PHOTO BY DAVE MARNER

the General Fund at the end of the 2011-12 school year and the decision by the board of education to increase salaries for the first time in three years. Despite the reductions in revenue and expenditures previously, this budget should allow the district to continue to offer quality educational experiences for our students.” Brock’s report also noted the end of any “stimulus” funding. “Funding for 2013 no longer includes funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Adjustments have been made so that earlier reliance on those funds did not have a significant impact when those funds were gone.” Active participation by school board and committee members in the budget process was also highlighted in Brock’s message. “This budget was prepared with involvement of the major stake holders of the district. Board members were provided financial information on a monthly basis and as a result made informed decisions based on projected revenues and expenditures. Building and district level administrators provided recommendations from their staffs that were incorporated as part of the expenditures, and the liaison committee composed of certified and non-certified employees, played an active role in making decisions about salary and benefits.” The report continues with an explanation of funding formulas,

district achievement, early childhood projects and a scheduled review of capital projects for the future. Brock write: “Student enrollment showed an increase last year for the first time in six years, with 62 more students than the year before. Early enrollment figures indicate the district may see another increase in student enrollment this year. “This year is the final year of the phase in of the new foundation formula, which should entitle the district to more money. However, the formula has been prorated at approximately 92 percent since the same amount of state money has been placed in the formula as was allocated the last three years. As a result we expect to receive slightly more revenue from the State Foundation Formula, one of our major sources of revenue. “Transportation funding however will be lower this year and will be the lowest the district has received in well over 15 years. On the bright side, our average daily attendance remains strong (95 percent district-wide) and we were able to bypass using our second preceding year for Weighted Average Daily Attendance for funding purposes. “One of the major milestones of the District is that we have been recognized for Distinction in Performance for High Achievement by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for six straight years. We have accomplished this in spite of


A true community event On Sunday, Sept. 2, (delayed from the fourth of July) the Rosebud community was once again treated to one of the best fireworks displays in the area. Yes I am biased, but that has nothing to do with the statement. The display was just over 20 minutes of grand finale caliber fireworks. I want to assure you, this is not your average show with an occasional ohh and ahh. This is a heart-thumping, constant barrage, where you actually wish you could hit rewind because you know you missed something kind of show. It is a show that you might need to check your pulse rate after because it will be racing — guaranteed. For those who don’t know about this annual show, consider yourself notified. What started as a backyard display has turned into a community picnic and event. One of the best parts of the entire show is it is conducted by volunteers.

The fireworks crew, led by their fearless leader Derick McCurry, put countless hours into collecting money, purchasing the fireworks, setting up the show and of course, cleaning everything up. The show is free as is the picnic. This is not a fund-raiser for any organization. There are no sponsorship signs. The evening is a family friendly event that truly welcomes all! People bring a dish, lawn chairs, coolers and their friends. Children vie to get the most candy from the candy cannon and catch a parachute before the show starts. Recipes are shared between neighbors and strangers alike. The Rosebud park is filled with a spirit of patriotism and pride. This is small town America at its best and this, my friends, is why I love living in Rosebud! Shannon M. Grus, mayor, city of Rosebud

declining revenues and increasing expenditures over the prior three years. Now with the new MSIP 5 standards in place, there will be no recognition of Distinction in Performance for three years. “After three years of data have been gathered using the new accreditation standards, districts will then be recognized as performing with distinction, however it is expected that less than a third of the previous districts receiving the distinction in performance award this past year, will be able to meet the criteria for that designation under the new standards. “Now that our Pre-School programs are housed in our two elementary schools, we have seen increases in our Pre-School numbers and we have increased the quality of our Pre-School programs. As the district looks to serve more of our pre-school population, the district will need to make additional classroom space available through

an expansion of our current elementary schools. “Our Parents As Teachers program continues to face challenges this year due to significant funding cuts from the state in previous years that have not been reinstated. This budget does provide additional district funds for the PAT program in an attempt to at least serve the families and children who have the most severe need. “Several capital projects were completed last year and several more will be completed this year. Capital project expenditures are one-time expenditures and are determined based on available funds and the priorities of the Long Range Facility Improvement Plan. This year, the Long Range Facility Planning Committee will reconvene to update the improvement plan based on what has been accomplished over the past three years and what remains to be completed. “Finally, in spite of our best

efforts to determine as accurately as possible our projected revenues and expenditures, in the end this is still our “best guess” as of Sept. 17, 2012. We know from prior experience that throughout the year these projections will change and will require the board to modify the budget from time to time to reflect actual activities.” In other board action: • the board approved the high school FFA chapter’s trip to Indianapolis, Ind., from Oct. 24-26 for the National FFA Convention. • asked for a written proposal from Earth’s Classroom on the scope a plan to create walking trails through wooded areas behind OES and OMS and a garden project at GES. • awarded a scoreboard bid with NEVCO, in the amount not to exceed $25,528.44. “Brock will negotiate further with NEVCO, to potentially lower the overall cost of the scoreboard,” records show.

SB 749: Missouri lawmakers make contraception bill law in sole override vote By Wes Duplantier State Capitol Bureau JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri employers and insurance companies now have a state legal claim to refuse to provide health insurance coverage for contraception. But critics charged the bill lawmakers passed Sept. 12 over the governor’s veto will face immediately legal challenge for conflicting with federal requirements. Missouri lawmakers overrode Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto to pass legislation that is intended to allow employers and insurers to refuse to provide health insurance coverage of contraception, abortion and sterilization if such procedures violate the employer’s religious beliefs. In an afternoon vote that lasted for several tense minutes, seven House Democrats broke with their party and with the governor to give Republicans the two-thirds majority they needed to overcome Nixon’s action and make the measure part of state law in a 109-45 vote — the bare minimum number required to approve the override motion. The Republican-controlled Senate had also backed an override of the veto in a 26-6 vote earlier in the day. House Republicans broke into applause as their final vote was announced. Hours after the votes, at least one labor organization in Kansas City told The Associated Press that it plans to sue to stop the law’s implementation. The bill was filed in response to a rule levied by the federal Department of Health and Human Services that required employers and insurance companies to cover contraception at no additional cost to the employees. Sponsoring Sen. John Lamping, along with several other conservatives, have argued for months that employers should not have to provide a benefit that contradicts their religious beliefs. “This bill does not restrict access,” said Lamping, R-St. Louis

County. “This bill makes clear that you can’t force someone who disagrees with you to pay for your services.” Lamping’s measure had passed the Republican-controlled House and Senate by wide margins earlier this year, but the proposal faced heated objections from Democrats, including Nixon, who said it will allow employers to interfere with the private health care decisions of women across the state. “It’s not okay for you to decide if a woman has a baby or not,” said state Rep. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis. “It’s really time to stop the rhetoric, stop the propaganda and tell the truth.” And some opponents had raised concern about the apparent conflict between the state and federal directives. Sen. Jolie Justus said some insurance industry representatives had told her that companies might sue the state to have the courts resolve the confusion. Before it voted on the contraception measure, the House elected Majority Floor Leader Tim Jones, R-St. Louis County, as its new Speaker to replace its previous leader, Rep. Steven Tilley, who resigned from the chamber last month. No one was officially named to take Jones’ post Wednesday. The contraception vote was the only one of Nixon’s 14 non-budget vetoes that lawmakers challenged in their one-day session last Wednesday. Voting for the veto override were area legislators including Dave Schatz (R-Sullivan), Tom Loehner (R-Koeltztown), Dave Hinson (R-St. Clair), Scott Dieckhaus (RWashington), and Paul Curtman (R- Pacific). In the Senate, Dan Brown (RRolla), Brian Nieves (R-Washington) and Mike Kehoe (R-Jefferson City all voted for the override. House members declined to attempt an anticipated override vote on bill dealing with vehicle taxes — and that which could throw

the finances of cities and counties statewide into uncertainty. “We don’t have the votes,” a Republican House member told a member of the media only minutes before the session opened. The state Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that state cannot collect local sales taxes on vehicles purchased from out-of-state dealers or from other individuals. The state stopped collecting sales tax on such purchases in March. Lawmakers had rushed to pass a “fix” bill in the final days of their spring session, which would override the court and reinstate the old tax system to head off that fiscal uncertainty — and allow the state to collect taxes retroactively. But Nixon struck the bill down, maintaining the court’s decision was correct and saying it would be unfair to send taxpayers a bill. The court did leave open the option for cities and counties to charge a tax on a vehicle’s use in such cases. But only a portion of Missouri cities and counties have enacted a use tax. That means many cities and counties revenues fall for their annual budgets, already battered by the economic downturn. Gasconade County does not have a use tax in place. Osage County voters approved a use tax during the August Primary election. Richard Sheets, deputy director of Missouri Municipal League, said the veto could throw the finances of cities and counties statewide into uncertainty as they might have to wait months to put use taxes before their voters on local ballots — and even then, the restoration of the revenue is not guaranteed. “It’s not realistic to think a lot of them are going to pass a use tax in the next election,” he said. The Legislature is now likely adjourned for the rest of the year, not to return unless the governor were to call a special session. Jones suggested the governor call lawmakers back to address the auto tax; Nixon immediately rejected that idea.


NEW HOUSE SPEAKER Tim Jones gives instructions to Rep. Jeanie Riddle (left), assistant floor majority leader, during the Sept. 12 veto session. Riddle, R-Mokane, later shut off debate while several Democrats were waiting to comment on the con­ tra­­ception issue. Jones works the back of the House and the chamber phone (above) with Rep. Steve Largent (R-Clinton) and (below) with Largent and Caleb Jones, R-California. Voting was held open for five minutes.

STATE REP. TIM JONES, R-Eureka, was sworn in Sept. 12 as Speaker of the House, replacing Rep. Steve Tilley who resigned his term early to become a consultant. Speaker Pro Tem Shane Schoeller, R-Willard, looks on. Schoeller is running for Secretary of State against Robin Carnahan in the November General Election. Jones had served as Majority Floor Leader in the past General Assembly session which concluded in May. Jones was sworn in to the post to oversee a veto session.

news briefs MT. PLEASANT Baptist Church invites the public to a homecoming celebration on Sunday, Sept. 23. A 10:45 a.m. service is planned. Those attending are asked to bring a side dish for a meal after the service. IN A CRAWFORD Electric Cooperative election for District 1, incumbent Melvin King, Sullivan, was re-elected with 699 votes. Challenger Luann Freiberger, Leslie, received 263 votes, according to Crawford officials. Two other board seats up for election were unopposed. The District 2 and District 3 positions were filled by a motion, re-electing incumbent directors, Doug Murphy (District 2) and Jim Cottrell (District 3). This was the 72nd annual meeting of the members of Crawford Electric Cooperative. Held Sept. 12, 708 members registered and 473 members voted by mail. MARIES COUNTY Sheriff Chris Heitman reported autopsy results showed no signs of foul play in the death of Brian L. McCance, 35, of Dixon. His remains were discovered near a wooded area off Highway 28 near Route E in Maries County over the weekend. Cause of death is still undermined pending toxicology results. “It was apparent that the male subject had been in the outdoor area for several days,” Heitman reported. OWENSVILLE AREA Ambulance District’s Board of Directors on Aug. 20 set an operating tax levy at 10.27 cents per $100 of assessed valuation. Minutes from the meeting reflect that “tax paperwork from the county was reviewed by all members. The property tax is rolled back by 50 percent of the sales tax brought in the previous year. Based on the calculation the tax levy should be let at .1027 per $100 valuation.” R-2 BOARD of Education members voted Monday to hire Dennis Linhardt (night custodian at OHS), Robert Huesgen, Jr., (temporary maintenance staff), John Bradley (GES parttime evening custodian), and Kristyna Crocker (GES substitute teacher).

On the farm State Rep. Shane Schoeller, R-Willard, conclude the first day of a two-day agriculture tour of mid-Missouri on Monday with a dinner stop at Ron and Krista Hardecke’s rural Owensville home. Schoeller, speaker Pro Tem of the Missouri House of Representatives, is running as the Republican candidate for Secretary of State in the Nov. 6 General Election. He spoke to a dinner crowd of nearly 100 people and renewed his goal to require voter identification for all Missourians. He also stressed he would address and fix a problem he’s seen with poorly worded and misleading ballot language on state-wide propositions. He told guest of the Hardecke family that he would work with the Division of Administrative Rule Making to eliminate problems with ballot issues which go “beyond the scope of legislative intent.” He concluded by saluting veterans in attendance for defending the citizens’ rights to vote. Schoeller visited with the Cartwright brothers (from left) Colby, 9, Cooper, 8, and Chance, 6, as they ate. Hardecke (below, middle) greets Tom Hurst, Republican candidate for the 62nd House District (left) and Dave Schatz, incumbent Republican candidate for the 61st District. Schoeller and Schatz view some of Hardecke’s “better” stands of corn during a wagon tour of his 575-acre row crop and hog operation. Schoeller met with Missouri Soybean Association officials earlier in the day in Jefferson City and made stops in Mexico (Mid-America Biofuels), Laddonia (POET Biorefining), Montgomery City MFA, and H&H Guns in Warrenton as part of his “Farm Values PHOTOS BY DAVE MARNER Tour” across Missouri.

CCPI registration period ends Sept. 28 Gasconade County Soil and Water Conservation District (GCSWCD) officials remind the registration period for the Cooperative Conservation Paternship Initiative (CCPI), “Stablilizing Streambank Erosion Issues Within the Bourbeuse Watershed in Gasconade County, Mo.” ends Sept. 28. “This project is intended to assist landowners in addressing their streambank erosion issues,” GCSDCD officials noted. “We have currently placed three projects on the ground and we hope to host a tour in the near future to see how they are functioning. “We are in our fourth and possibly final year of this project as we are approaching our initial $200,000 allocation,” noted the agency. “The funding is also contingent on the Farm Bill that is currently being addressed in the Legislature. The program is funded through the Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) and other funding could be available through the State Cost-share program and the Farm Service Agency. If you have land that is being affected by streambank erosion and it is located south of Highway 28 in Gasconade County, you may be eligible to apply for this program. The program is competitive, based on a specific ranking procedure. Contact the GCSWCD office at 314 S. Olive Street in Owensville to fill out an application.

Raise your “Awareness” of benefits of lIfe insurance Jason R. Crowe, AAMS® Financial Advisor

Edward Jones You may be unaware of it, but September is Life Insurance Awareness Month. And when you consider the lifetime of benefits you and your family may receive from life insurance, you might agree that a month isn’t too long to spend on this important part of your overall financial picture. Unfortunately, too many Americans are uninsured or under-insured. In fact, nearly a third of all consumers think they need more life insurance, according to the 2012 Insurance Barometer Study, published by the nonprofit LIFE Foundation and LIMRA, a research and consulting organization that specializes in insurance and financial services. And it appears that one of the main reasons so many people lack sufficient life insurance is their perception that they can’t afford it. Yet, the cost for basic term life insurance has fallen by about 50 percent over the past 10 years, according to the LIFE Foundation.

A friend shared with me George Washington’s comments from September 19, 1796, written two hundred and sixteen years ago to this very day. “The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissention, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual: and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction more able or more fortunate than his competitors turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty.” The contempt among party members and the power wielded by the political party bosses frightens me. In today’s climate of political extremes, will we begin to see a future exodus from both political parties and an explosion of individuals and candidates called “Independents”? Maybe that wouldn’t be a bad idea? Isn’t it a refreshing thought that someone would care a little less about their political party and a little more about good government and the perpetuation of the intellectual ideals of our Founding Fathers? Your comments are always welcome at


having to pay off the mortgage if anything should happen to you, your surviving spouse will have to find the money to educate your children — and that’s a big challenge, given the rapidly escalating expenses associated with college. But with sufficient life insurance in place, your spouse can deal with the high costs of higher education. Furthermore, if you have permanent life insurance, such as whole life or universal life, you have the potential to build cash value, which you may be able to tap to help pay for college — while you’re still alive.

Lawmakers decline to override Nixon’s veto of car use tax By Jordan Shapiro Capitol News Bureau When lawmakers met at their annual veto session Wednesday, Sept, 12, they declined to override a veto from Gov. Jay Nixon of a car use tax. The state Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that state cannot collect local sales taxes on vehicles purchased from out-of-state dealers or from other individuals. The state stopped collecting sales tax on such purchases in March. Nixon vetoed this bill sponsored by Rep. Ryan Silvey, R-Kansas City, and actively campaigned against a possible override. He said the measure would have imposed a retroactive tax on over 122,000 Missourians who purchased cars after March 21. Richard Sheets, deputy director of the Missouri Municipal League, said Nixon’s veto could throw the finances of cities and counties state-

wide into uncertainty as they might have to wait months to put use taxes before their voters on local ballots — and even then, the restoration of the revenue is not guaranteed. The veto could cause city and county revenues to fall in their annual budgets, which are already battered by the economic downturn. “It’s not realistic to think a lot of them are going to pass a use tax in the next election,” Sheets said. Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones, R-St. Louis County, said they would not take up the measure if there were not enough votes in the House to achieve the two-thirds majority to override Nixon’s veto. Jones suggested that Nixon call a special session and “show leadership” so lawmakers can address the use tax issue. Nixon rejected that idea. “I don't think I should ask the taxpayers to fund a special session to let the legislature come back and try to raise taxes,” Nixon said.

Drought has Missouri cattlemen struggling to feed their livestock

By Katherine Kreider State Capitol Bureau JEFFERSON CITY — Committee members heard a tearful testimony from cattle ranchers on Sept. 11, begging for drought aid to help keep their businesses alive. In a House Agriculture Policy Committee meeting, Missouri farmers addressed their grievances toward the recent drought. The drought caused hay prices in Missouri to skyrocket up to $85 per large round bale, a price very few cattle ranchers can afford. Without the adequate amount of resources from local producers, cattle farmers will not be able to keep their cows healthy enough for sale. Wendy Cantrell of the Miller County Regional Stockyard, gave her testimony, informing the committee of the failing livestock business. “Very few people know what you all are talking about, they just don’t have a clue,” Cantrell said. “They come in to me and they’re 60 years old and they have tears in their eyes and they say ‘I've gotta sell, I have no other choice, I’ve gotta sell.’” Many legislators have been worried about the production of soybeans and corn due to the drought, focusing less attention on the business of selling livestock.

With the pressure to produce a higher yield, Missouri farmers have been over-plowing their wheat and soybean fields, shrinking grazing land for cattle. Yet the corn and soybean crop is not failing as poorly as some expected. Farmers in southeast and northwest Missouri have produced a higher yield of corn than previously thought. With the recent rain, soybean farmers will only lose about 10 bushels per acre. About 80 percent of all corn and soybean crops statewide are insured. Recent legislation allows farmers to apply for a cost-share program to get water for their crops. Cattle ranchers are not eligible to receive these benefits. “If you talk to someone who isn’t involved in farming very much what farming is, the first impression is of a tractor, a combine or something in grain farming,” said House Agriculture Policy Committee Chair Tom Loehner. “You hardly ever hear about the cattle farmers or the hog farmers, it’s all about the grain.” Lack of attention toward cattle ranchers is one of the largest problems facing their businesses. Without the help of state funding, the livestock business in Missouri may soon reach its end for some.

State to save $44 million with refinanced bonds

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Gov. Jay Nixon announced Sept. 11 that the State of Missouri will save a total of approximately $44 million in the current fiscal year because of bond refinancing made possible by the state’s strong fiscal discipline and spotless Triple-A credit rating. The State Board of Fund Commissioners gave final approval on the refinancing of the General Obligation Refunding Bonds, Series A 2012, which will result in $23.3 million in savings in the current fiscal year. Bank of America Merrill Lynch was the winning bidder on these bonds, at a true interest cost of 0.757 percent, an extremely competitive interest rate. In addition, the State Board of Public Buildings on Aug. 2 approved the refinancing of the Board of Public Buildings Series A 2012 Refunding Bonds, which will save an additional $20.3 million this fiscal year. This brings the total current-year savings on the Board of Fund Commissioners and Board of Public Buildings refinancing to approximately $44 million.

Games, activities keep residents busy By Krystal Martin This week’s feature presentation is “Smokey and the Bandit” Get ready to tear up the highway with the Bandit(Burt Reynolds), a fun loving, fast-talking trucker who takes on his craziest haul yet – delivering 400 cases of beer from Texarkana to Atlanta in just 28 hours. With Sheriff T. Justice (Jackie Gleason) hot on his trail and eager to teach him some respect for the law, the Bandit joins forces with good ol’ boy Cledus and runaway bride Carrie. Gear up for huge laughs, pedal- to the- metal action, and some of the wildest car crashes every filmed! Join us Wednesday . Sunday afternoon Bill Hafley from the Rosebud Lutheran Church was here to offer services to residents and their families. Later that afternoon residents gathered in several of our sitting areas to catch the Cardinal’s game, they were all excited that the Car-

Pricilla, Maryann, and Delores for Sing-a-Long. We all enjoyed singing our fun songs from the blue books. It has been a while since we’ve done that. After lunch I headed over to the Lions Club with a small group of residents and Chery spent the afternoon playing cards. Wednesday morning after Fun & Fitness we gathered for “Craft Club”. We made monkeys on a surfboard and yes they were as cute as they sound. We had a few issues with the glue holding so Chery and I got out the hot glue guns to insure they do not fall apart. With the weather being so nice we decided to head out to the front patio and take in some fresh air while we read the local newspaper. Thursday morning Pam brought Foghat for us to exercise to, it was a little slower than we are used to but we had fun just the same. Chery got a group together to play

dinal’s beat the LA Dodgers and moved into the second spot for the Wild Card position. We have very loyal fans here at Frene Valley. Monday morning Pastor Jackie Asher was here bright and early for Bible Study, she had a large crowd gather to hear her sing and read passages from the Bible. Malinda offered room visits to the men, she went around and cut their nails and also offered a lotion massage with manly fragrance lotion, they really enjoy being pampered. Bingo was played later that afternoon with help from Betty Curtman. Congratulations to Henry and John for winning the dollar cover all game. Tuesday morning after breakfast we headed to the activity room for Fun & Fitness, it had been a couple days since our last get together so we were all ready to work up a sweat. Pam brought Madonna and we all had a great time movin’ and grovin’. Later that morning we were joined by

Wheel of Fortune while I spent the morning in Care Plans. Thursday afternoon we had “Cooks Corner” were we made supreme pizza’s. This is one of our residents favorite activities. We give each resident a biscuit that they roll and then they add tons of toppings including everything from Italian sausage to mushrooms. While the pizzas were in the oven we played a couple rounds of Buzz word. Once the pizza was done each was delivered and we all enjoyed our homemade pizza with some soda and good friends. Friday morning the ladies from the Immaculate Conception Church stopped in to offer Rosary to all the Catholic residents. I then went around with the ice cream cart handing out and assortment of flavored cones to everyone. Bingo was played that afternoon with everyone winning a prize and help from Joann Lexa.

Gasconade Manor Nursing Home News

September birthdays celebrated By Steffani Mitchell This past week was such a fun filled week for our residents! Our efforts in the Culture Change movement have really taken off these last few months! The caregivers in each of our neighborhoods have went above and beyond and have worked so very hard at keeping their residents active and happy. From the aides to housekeeping and dietary, everyone has been working together to bring the Culture Change into our residents homes. Do Drop Inn has an exercise group that meets weekly in their dining room held by Opal who is the housekeeper in that neighborhood. She has such a huge crowd that she is starting to out grow the area they exercise in!! She has her radio and plays music to get everyone in the mood to exercise! Opal is such a wonderful asset to our home and to Do Drop Inn’s neighborhood. We can’t thank her enough for all that she does! Yesteryear’s neighborhood has held the Red Hats Club for several months now and the residents love it!! They look forward to Tuesday nights with Terry and Kelly where they do crafts, have tea time and garden. This is such a special group and it’s made such an impact on the residents and even the staff! Dogwood Crossings neighborhood has started a group activity where they watch marathon shows from the past like the I Love Lucy Show, the Dick Van Dyke Show, Life With Elizabeth and many many more on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. It’s so amazing to see the residents with memory impairments watching these shows laughing and remembering! Our Garden Lane neighborhood has taken up baking, baking and more baking! These ladies just can not get enough!! They have baked more zucchini bread then they knew what to do with it! But all the visitors and staff passing by helped them out by taking a slice at a time. Even our rehab wing has kept busy especially on the weekends. Manicures, crafts and games are available thanks to the wonderful staff that works there. Our whole facility has really embraced this change and made it the best that it can be for our residents!

In activities, Sunday School was held for the residents by Jim and Jane in the activity room after breakfast with a nice size group ready to sing hymns and listen to their teachings. Sunday marked the beginning of Assisted Living Week and they hosted a Fried Chicken Dinner for the residents and their families. Around 70 guest attended. Monday morning, Rosary was held in the Assisted Living wing for our Catholic residents. Back in the activity room, our exercise group was ready to stretch out and get moving with Health Club. We then ventured over to the tables for a good ole’ game of cards. After lunch, we had a really good group ready to play table-top bowling. We had a new player this week and he didn’t do too bad for his first time bowling! In 3rd place was Reta with 90, 2nd place was Rickie with 100 and Gladys coming in 1st with an almost perfect game of 108!! Everybody had such a great time! Root Beer floats ended a perfect day! Over on the Assisted Living wing, residents enjoyed home made ice cream. Tuesday, Judy got busy with manicures for the ladies making them look their best! That afternoon, Bible Study was held for the residents in the activity room by the Zion Lutheran Church.

The residents on the Assisted Living wing enjoyed BBQ brats for lunch and made popcorn for their afternoon snack. Wednesday, the residents enjoyed playing different games on their neighborhoods such as Yahtzee and dominoes. Fresh donuts from Sweet Treats Bakery helped the residents on the ALF wing wake up and then headed over to the White Mule for a delicious lunch. We celebrated the September birthdays that afternoon with our birthday sponsors, St. James U.C.C. These ladies were wonderful as always and made these birthdays very special indeed. We are so lucky to have great sponsors! We really can’t thank them enough and to Jeannie Warden for coming in each month and playing beautiful piano music. Having her play is like the icing on the cake! Wednesday night, the activity room was filled with eager residents ready to rock and roll with Center Stage. So many of the residents love them and talk about them for days after. Esther had told me “she was dancing in her mind” while they played. A huge thank you to Center Stage and we look forward to the next show! Thursday was such a beautiful day for our Summer’s Last Fling party for the residents that was set

up by Yesteryear’s caregiver, Ashley Meadows. Right after breakfast we took the residents out to the courtyard where Joshua Gibbs played his guitar and sang his songs. While Joshua was entertaining the residents, staff started setting up tables and Jacob started the grill for the BBQ. Burgers, brats and hot dogs were on the menu along with pasta salad, baked beans, a relish tray, potato salad and many more sides that staff had brought in for all to enjoy. This was a really big event that took place for the residents and we can’t thank enough the staff that went out of their way to help make it possible! And an even bigger thanks to Ashley for putting this all together and making Summer’s Last Fling one to remember! In between listening to the music in the courtyards and Assisted Living Week, the residents also kept busy making s’mores and taking a trip to Wal- Mart. That evening, the staff on the Assisted Living wing were celebrated as well with dinner out and they all received flowers as a thank you. Friday morning, the residents came out to the activity room bright and early and helped peel and slice fresh peaches for the peach cobbler we were making for our amazing housekeepers and laundry staff.

put on the finishing touches to the craft project we’ve been working on and we were all really excited to show them how much we love them! Winding down the week on the Assisted Living wing, the residents enjoyed Krispy Kreme donuts for breakfast and spent the day hoping they were one of the winners of the random drawings that took place all day. That afternoon, they held a bowling tournament and Norine came in 3rd place, Dorothy came in 2nd and Bonnie came in 1st!! They all had so much fun! After lunch in the activity room, the residents made their way back out early so we could all be there to say our thanks to the housekeeping/laundry department. We showed them the poster board we made telling them that we love our worker bees and handed out thank you cards that the resi-

dents filled out themselves. We then let them dig in to the cobbler with ice cream and gave them a round of applause! Gasconade Manor has the best housekeeping/laundry staff and they all do an amazing job keeping our residents home clean and tidy!! After the celebration was done, the bingo players polished off the rest of the cobbler and it was so good!! Our cover-all winners this week were Alice and Eileen!! Way to go ladies! Saturday, many residents enjoyed the beautiful temperatures in the courtyard while others played dominoes and worked on their own projects. For the last day of Assisted Living Week, the residents spent the day in Steeleville watching the Country Music Show and then enjoyed dinner at Pizza Hut. The whole week went on with out a hitch and enjoyed by everyone!

Crawford Electric hosts last of ‘circus tent’ meetings, new warehouse facility to be operational in 2013 708 members registered, and the crowd was estimated at more than 1,400. Perfect weather helped make this final tent meeting festive. BOURBON — When the big tents came down Wednesday, Sept. 12, it marked the end of an era in the history of the annual meetings of members of Crawford Electric Cooperative. The green-and-white circus style tents have been a feature of coop meetings across Missouri since 1949. Crawford Electric’s meeting next year will be conducted on solid level ground, under roof in the vehicle storage facility that’s currently under construction on the co-op’s grounds along Interstate 44 at Bourbon. The fact that the east half of the co-op’s 60-acre campus is an active construction site presented some logistical challenges to this annual meeting. A newly relocated county road now crosses portions of the field west of the current headquarters where lunch had been cooked and served at previous annual meetings. This meant that the lunch tent and meal lines had to be relocated in somewhat cramped conditions. Also, members had to park in a previously unused field and be

shuttled to the meeting location. And vehicle access to the meeting site was restricted to only one way in and out. Nonetheless, 708 members registered, and the crowd was estimated at more than 1,400. Perfect weather helped make this final tent meeting festive. In the business session, members learned more about the facilities construction project. Crawford Electric CEO Dan Blesi used the annual meeting tent as an illustration of the state of the co-op’s facilities. “Looks pretty good from the outside on a quick drive-by,” he said, “but it’s not getting the job done in the best possible way for the members,” pointing to tears and patches and reminding attendees of last year’s rain-soaked meeting. He described deficiencies in the current buildings, noting that the original structure was built in 1952, when Harry Truman was president and the co-op served about 6,000 meters. Today, Crawford Electric serves almost 20,000 meters. The construction project includes a warehouse, vehicle storage space, operations facilities as well as administrative offices and a member payment drive-through. Blesi praised the co-op’s board for the decision to build the facilities now. He noted that the co-op locked in a historically low long-term interest rate of 2.5 percent for the construction loan through the Rural


Utilities Service, much the same way the co-op finances construction of power lines. Blesi explained that because these construction costs can be spread over 50 years, there will be no direct impact on member rates. Blesi also discussed the local economic impact of the construction project. He explained the open bidding process, noting that more

than 60 local contractors were directly invited and the bid meeting was publicly advertised. “We received bids from service area contractors on about 40 percent of the project and awarded about 30 percent of the project to service area contractors,” he said. “On a day-to-day basis an average of more than 60 percent of the workers on the project are from

The Great Compromise

of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 established two houses of Congress—one was the House of Representatives and the other was the Senate. How many Representatives each state got was based on population. This made the largest states happy. Each state was to have two Senators and this made the smaller states happy. The Framers decided to count the people every 10 years to determine how many representatives a state could have. Having the most representatives was important for two reasons: 1) the more populous states would have more power in Congress; and 2) since the Electoral College votes for each state is based on the number of representatives plus two for the two senators, it also gave a state a larger role in electing the president.

Every 10 years, after everyone is counted, Congress decides

how many representatives each state gets. The U.S. House of Representatives has 435 members, which doesn’t change. Each state has the number of representatives that reflects its percentage of the nation’s population. Based on the 2010 census, Missouri will lose one of its nine U.S. representatives because its population didn’t grow as fast as the population of some other states, which will gain representatives. This means that Missouri’s congressional districts had to be redrawn. At the same time, Missouri’s population has shifted, which meant that state representative and senate districts had to be redrawn, too.

This process is called redistricting and new map lines were

drawn to form new districts. Many people had ideas about how the new districts should look. The Missouri Constitution provides that all of the districts for U.S. Congress, for the state representatives and for the state senate be “compact and equal in size” according to population. The nine current U.S. Congress people from Missouri knew that one of them would be without a job after the November 2012 elections, and some state representatives and state senators no longer lived in the districts they represented.

Internationally acclaimed marionettes to bring artistry, grace to Leach Theatre

A powerful, moving and, at times, humorous series of original vignettes set to music will be presented by the internationally acclaimed Cashore Marionettes this month at Missouri University of Science and Technology. A part of this season’s Leach Theatre Family Series, the performance will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla, Mo. The program, “Simple Gifts,” is a series of touching portrayals and poignant scenes from everyday life set to music by such composers as Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven and Copland. The show explores a range of emotions with characters and actions that are amazingly convincing. Joseph Cashore has received

numerous awards for his artistry, including a Pew Fellowship for Performance Art, a Henson Foundation Grant, and a Citation of Excellence from the American chapter of the Union Internationale de la Marionette (UNIMAUSA), the highest honor an American puppeteer can receive. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and youth. Tickets are available online at, or from the Leach Theatre Box Office. Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 573341-4219 for more information.

JV Girls, MS Boys race to titles at Fulton BY WILL JOHNSON Republican Sports Editor Two plaques, several medals and a trip to Central Dairy in Jefferson City for ice cream made for a happy bus ride home from Fulton for Owensville Cross Country Saturday afternoon. Matt Candrl’s JV Dutchgirls and Lauren Gann’s OMS Dutchmen each raced their way to team championships Saturday. “Our varsity and junior varsity girls teams ran very well today,” OHS head

Will Johnson

cross country coach Matt Candrl said. Beginning a jam packed morning of racing were the middle school boys. Led by Carter Brocato’s second-place time of 8:55.37, Gann’s OMS Dutchmen (42) finished on top of the team standings. “Our middle school boys ran an excellent race today,” said OMS head cross country coach Lauren Gann said. Following Brocato and earning medals with top 25 finishes were Sam Blackwell See Fulton on Page 24

With the way the first four weeks of the high school football season has gone, this year’s 2012 Owensville High School fall homecoming theme of “Turning the Luck Around” could not have come at a better time. Learning a new offense this season, Dale Long’s Dutchmen football squad has endured a tough non-conference schedule and will look to break into the win column Friday night against Hermann. “Hermann will come in ready to play and they have some good athletes on both sides of the ball,” said Dutchmen head football coach See Turning on Page 24

Nagel’s Dutchgirls settle for second in own softball invite BY WILL JOHNSON Republican Sports Editor Losing an 8-5 decision to Union days earlier, Tim Nagel’s Dutchgirl softball team was more than ready for another shot at them Saturday during the rescheduled Owensville Softball Tournament. In an unfortunate, but similar outcome, the Dutchgirls could not overcome an early deficit falling to Union in the championship game, 2-0. In the bottom of the first inning, Union earned the advantage of being the home

team after winning the pregame coin toss. Thanks to three hits and an inopportune error, the Lady Wildcats put two runs on the board for a 2-0 lead after one inning. Looking for some two-out magic in the top of the second, Bailey Nelson and Kayla Danz both singled with two outs. A strikeout ended the inning keeping Owensville off the scoreboard. Another scoring chance presented itself to OHS in the top of the third. After Claire Smith was hit by a pitch, she moved to second when Mercedes

Spurgeon grounded into a fielder’s choice. The bases became full of Dutchgirls when Dayla Gruenloh was also hit by a pitch. They stayed loaded when the third out was made and no runs could score. Unable to cash in on scoring chances, Owensville settled for second place in their own tournament Saturday at Lions Field. Dutchgirls vs. Belle Opening the tournament against Belle’s Lady Tigers, Nagel’s Dutchgirls were seeking Highway 28 bragging rights and a See Settle on Page 24

Turnovers cost Dutchmen in FRC gridiron opener BY WILL JOHNSON Republican Sports Editor With a vast improvement moving the ball on offense, Dale Long’s Dutchmen football team could not overcome four lost fumbles during a 14-7 loss to St. James in the Four Rivers Conference (FRC) opener for Owensville. “We gave everything we had tonight. We simply could not hold on to the ball and that hurt us,” said Dutchmen head coach Dale Long. “We’ll continue to work on the little things and get better for next week.” Winning the opening coin toss, the visiting Tigers immediately took advantage of their first possession on offense. Capping a six play, 66 yard drive, St. James quarterback Dusty Snelson found Braxton Ubben for a 13 yard touchdown pass two minutes into the first quarter. Mason Ragland’s extra point gave the Tigers an early 7-0 with 10:01 left in the first quarter at Dutchmen Field.

Owensville looked for an answer on their first offensive go-round. Staring at a fourth-and-one from their 33 yard line, Dutchmen senior running back Cody Howard picked up two yards on the play and gave OHS a fresh set of downs with 8:16 left in the opening quarter. Howard had 15 carries for 65 yards rushing. Going to the air on first down, Dutchmen senior quarterback Terrick Ellis hooked up with a wide open Ben Angell for a 45 yard pass play and another first down at the St. James 18 yard line. Two plays later, fellow senior running back Gage Tayloe racked up 10 yards and set up a first-and-goal from the Tiger nine. Tayloe ended his night with a team-high 127 yards rushing on 25 carries. A fumble recovered by Tiger defender Caleb Pratt brought the Dutchmen drive to a screeching halt halfway through the first. “We had kids step up and make plays See Turnovers on Page 19

Turnovers • from page 17 defensively tonight to help us win a hard-fought game,” said Tiger head coach Greg Harlan. Four plays into St. James’ next possession on offense, sophomore Kiowa Wright made his presence felt in the secondary. On a long pass play intended for Cody Brinker, Wright went up with him and came down with the interception at the Owensville 26 yard line. Taking over with 4:57 left in the first quarter, the Dutchmen running back trio of Howard, Lowder and Tayloe helped march the Dutchmen all the way down to the St. James nine yard line. Lowder also broke the century mark with 107 yards rushing on 20 carries and a touchdown. On the very next play, the fumble bug bit OHS again on the centerquarterback exchange to end the first quarter of football from OHS. Answering the bell once again, tackles for loss by Matt Pohlmann and Chris Dolles forced St. James into the first punting situation with 10:35 remaining in the first half. Chris (9) and his brother Cody Dolles (10) combined for 19 tackles. Working with a short field, Owensville’s quest to tie the game started on the Tiger 46 yard line. Eight running plays later, Lowder found the end zone from

nine yards out with 7:11 left until halftime. Lowder’s kick knotted the game at 7-7. Overcoming a couple of big pass plays, the Dutchmen defense rose to the occasion when Ryan Escalante stopped Snelson on a fourth-and-10 giving the ball back to OHS via a turnover on downs with 4:48 left in the second quarter. Nearly moving back into St. James territory, a high snap on the ensuing punt nearly gave the Tigers excellent field position. Dutchmen punter Josh Gregor tracked down the high snap and got a punt off that was downed on St. James’ 42 yard line with 1:38 to go. Moving back inside the Owensville 20, St. James opted for a field goal with 3.2 seconds remaining. Ragland’s 32 yard field goal went wide to the right as the first half came to an end tied at 7-7. In possession of the football to start the second half, the Dutchmen went right back to the ground game. Marching back inside Tiger territory, another lost fumble stalled the drive and gave St. James the ball with 7:44 left in the third quarter.

6:44 left in regulation. Keeping St. James on their side of the field, Owensville’s defense forced another punting situation with 3:10 to play at Dutchmen Field. Luke Jahnsen paced the Dutchmen defense with a team-high 12 tackles. Ryan Escalante followed in double digits with 11 tackles. Four plays into their potential game-tying drive, OHS nearly lost another fumble. Junior lineman Logan Shoemaker recovered the football with 1:55 remaining helping Owensville retain possession. Getting all the way to the Tiger 31, OHS saw another fumble recovered by St. James keeping their search going for win number one. Currently owning a five-game winning streak over Hermann on the gridiron, the Dutchmen will look to knock several items off their checklist Friday night. Not only will OHS look to hold on to the Gasconade County Bowl trophy, they will also be looking to crack the win column for the first time overall and within the Four Rivers Conference in 2012.

Making their way into Owensville’s half of the field, a holding penalty on the Tigers led to a fourthand-16 at the Dutchmen 44. Trying to pick on Mr. Wright again backfired on the Tigers. Recording his second interception of the game, Wright gave OHS the ball back on their 11 at the 4:40 mark of the third quarter. To go with his two interceptions, Wright also had nine total tackles on defense. Unable to get past the 20 yard line, the Dutchmen were forced to punt it back to St. James. Starting the ensuing drive at the Dutchmen 45, the Tigers capped an eight play drive with a 1 yard TD run from Jesse Hays breaking the 7-7 tie late in the third quarter. Ragland’s kick gave the visiting Tigers a 14-7 lead with 33.5 ticks remaining in the third quarter.

Dutchgirl spikers enjoy home cooking BY WILL JOHNSON Republican Sports Editor With almost a week after their loss to Fatima on the road, Dwayne Clingman’s Dutchgirl volleyball squads returned home Monday night for a Highway 19 showdown with Montgomery County. Lori Payne’s JV Dutchgirls hit the court first looking to erase any memories of a loss in three sets against the Lady Comets last week. Jumping out to big leads in both sets, Owensville went on to easily sweep the match in two games by scores of 25-6 and 25-9. Varsity action saw the Dutchgirls need to dig out of early holes in both sets against a scrappy Lady Wildcat team. Trading errors early in game one,

service runs by Grace Schlottach, Maranda King and Shelby Stiehr helped OHS to a 25-14 victory. Nursing a 6-4 lead in game two, Mandie Robertson ran off five service points giving the Dutchgirls some breathing room en route to a 25-15 win in game two to sweep the match. Montgomery County did not have a freshman team.

Disease from biting midge flies causing deer deaths Despite local impacts of hemorrhagic disease overall deer hunting expected to remain good according to the Missouri Department of Conservation JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) continues to receive reports from people around the state of dead deer. The culprit appears to be hemorrhagic disease (HD), a general term for epizootic hemorrhagic disease and the bluetongue virus. “Both diseases are closely related, have similar clinical signs and are naturally spread by a small, biting midge fly,” says MDC Deer Biologist Emily Flinn. “Cattle and goats are normally not affected, or show only mild signs of being sick. Sheep are susceptible only to the bluetongue virus.” Humans do not get hemorrhagic disease, so handling and consumption of meat from deer that have recovered from the disease pose no health hazard. However, Flinn cautions that any animal in a poor, diseased condition, regardless of the cause, may be unfit for consumption. Some deer deaths from hemorrhagic disease may occur every year, mostly during August and September. These minor outbreaks tend to go unnoticed because carcasses quickly decompose and are scavenged. During drought years, outbreaks tend to be more significant. “Significant outbreaks have mainly happened during droughts, with past ones being in 1980, 1988, 1998 and 2007,” Flinn says.

MoDot seeks projects for “Safe Routes to School” (SRTS) Funds

The Missouri Department of Transportation is seeking projects to be funded with federal Safe Routes to School (SRTS) funds. Applications are due by November 5, 2012. Projects will be selected by a statewide committee of transportation professionals, education professionals, health department officials and walking/bicycling advocates. Awards will be announced in January 2013. The SRTS program offers up to 100 percent federal funding focused on providing infrastructure, safety improvements, ADA improvements, safety education and encouragement for children to walk to school safely. Eligible projects must be located within a twomile radius of a grade school (K-8). Funding for the program is split into two funding categories: ·Infrastructure projects, including but not limited to sidewalk improvements, crosswalks, bicycle facilities, etc., ·Non infrastructure projects, including but not limited to - walk to school promotional programs, walking school bus programs, bicycle / pedestrian safety education, etc. The 2012 SRTS administrative guidelines and instructions on how to submit the SRTS application may be found at safety/SafeRoutestoSchool. htm or contact Safe Routes to School Coordinator Jeffrey Cremer at 573-526-2440.

“Outbreaks tend to occur in larger numbers during droughts because deer, and the biting flies, congregate near the fewer water spots. This increases the likelihood of the disease spreading. Freezing temperatures will mean an end to the biting fly and the disease outbreak.” As of mid-September, MDC has received reports of approximately 2,800 dead deer from throughout most of the state, with HD being the suspected cause. MDC has received few if any reports from counties in the southeast. Osage County has been hit the hardest with 193 reported deer. Other counties with high counts are Benton with 116, Randolph with 107, Morgan with 92, Clay with 81, Monroe with 80 and Texas with 75. Reports within these counties tend to be localized to specific areas. According to MDC’s deer harvest summary for 2011-2012, hunters harvested almost 291,600 deer during last year’s deer hunting seasons. Flinn adds that there will be local impacts this hunting season, but the overall hunting outlook remains good, and deer numbers in impacted areas should rebound pretty quickly. “However, if local deer populations have been significantly decreased due to HD, reduced harvest pressure on does will help the local population to recover,” she says. HD is not related to chronic wasting disease (CWD), which has been documented in 11 captive and five free-ranging deer in Macon County. Most deer infected with HD tend to die within one to three days. Typical symptoms include fever, excessive salivation, swol-

len neck, swollen tongue or swollen eyelids, and reduced activity. Because sick deer are feverish, they are often found near water. Not all deer die from the disease. In severe cases of past outbreaks, up to 40 percent of local deer herds have been lost in some areas of Missouri. There is no cure or vaccine for HD. Not much can be done to stop the disease from running its course through local whitetail populations, but reports of dead deer can help MDC biologists determine impacts of the disease on deer numbers in specific areas. “If you find a dead deer and the cause of death is not apparent, report it to your local conservation office or agent,” Flinn says. Other states have also reported hemorrhagic disease this year, including Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Montana, Utah, Georgia, Florida, Delaware and North Carolina. Flinn adds that deer in Midwestern and northern states experience less-frequent, severe outbreaks in comparison to southeastern states, which often experience frequent, mild outbreaks. The most common evidence that deer have survived the disease is sloughing, or cast and regrowth of the hooves. “Their hooves are rough and may regrow much like a fingernail regrows after falling off,” Flinn says. “The deer are generally in good shape, and the hoof problem is simply a residual effect of the disease. In some cases, the deer have sores on their tongues, dental pads or insides of their cheeks. Their health may vary from excellent to poor depending on the degree to which the sores affect feeding.”

ate regiments from Missouri are few. Winter presents the story of the 1st Missouri Infantry, one of the best of these regiments, through the words of Captain Joseph Boyce of Company D, the St. Louis Greys. Through introductions to each chapter, extensive endnotes and the incorporation of other writings by Boyce, Winter has significantly expanded Boyce’s history while still maintaining the focus on the regiment’s service in the war’s western theater. The Missouri State Archives is the official repository for state documents of permanent historic value and is located at 600 West Main Street in Jefferson City. All programs at the Archives are free of charge and open to the public, with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Missouri gas prices continue to rise Missouri, September 17- Average retail gasoline prices in Missouri have risen 3.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.76/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has increased 2.3 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.86/g, according to gasoline price website Including the change in gas prices in Missouri during the past week, prices yesterday were 39.9 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 17.3 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 15.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 24.9 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “The national average continues to hover near its higher ever September level,” said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “As we push deeper into September, the

more optimistic I am that these high prices will begin to come down slightly, but with the recently announced QE3, I’m a bit concerned that prices won’t moderate as much as previously expected as the dollar weakens, leading me to believe 2012 will

have featured the highest yearly average ever,” DeHaan said. GasBuddy operates and over 250 similar websites that track gasoline prices at over 140,000 gasoline stations in the United States and Canada.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — A program on the 1st Missouri Infantry, C.S.A., will be held at the Missouri State Archives at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday). Author and editor William C. Winter will be discussing his new book, “Captain Joseph Boyce and the 1st Missouri Infantry, C.S.A.” The role of the Missouri Confederate in the Civil War is too often typified as that of the Bushwhacker, guerrilla, or partisan ranger. Although these soldiers are certainly part of Missouri’s Confederate history, Missouri also provided soldiers who fought for the South at Shiloh and Corinth, from Vicksburg to Atlanta, in the assault at Franklin and in defense of Fort Blakely near Mobile, Alabama.

Remembering Sean Smith

By Jacob Warden Of The Republican’s Staff September 11th now has a new meaning to many people all over the world. It is that horrible day when New York was attacked, but now it is also a day where thousands of people will look back to remember one man, Sean Smith. Sean was one of four people that died in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Sean was a giving man, a father of two, a U.S. foreign service information management officer, but most people know him as a gamer. Sean was gaming that night. He typed “GUNSHOTS” on a message board and never came back. After a long day you want relax. Sean relaxed by playing online games including “Eve Online” where he is known as Vile Rat, or VR for short. Sean became a prominent member of the gaming community as main diplomat for Goonswarm Federation, a player-made alliance. More recently, he was elected to the Council of Stellar Management (CSM) where he worked to improve the game with developers. “If you play this stupid game, you may not realize it, but you play in a galaxy created in large part by Vile Rat’s talent as a diplomat,” one of Sean’s good friends, Alex “The Mittani” Gianturco, wrote commenting about his friend’s death. Eve is an open-ended game where the rules are what you make them. Sean was one of many people that shaped the game world with is diplomacy. Sean changed so many lives in gaming. He was the role model you tried to live up to. Many Eve gamers looked up to Sean, using him as a role model, even though most had never been able to shake his hand, or buy him a beer. Thousands of people in Eve have been taking part in ceremonies, making YouTube videos, and renaming virtual stations after VR. Sean Smith was 34-years-old, and is survived by a wife and two children. What sets the Eve community aside from other gaming communities is that Eve gamers have gone the extra mile by setting up a college fund for Sean’s two kids. In less then 24 hours, $50,000 has been raised. How do you remember a man like Sean? He was more than a father, husband or a diplomat. Out of all of his qualities is it right to remember him only as a gamer? I can not say. Most people will forget in time. Sean will become just another name in a list of all the people who have given their lives in service of this country. However the players of Eve will never forget. I am an Eve gamer that looked up to Sean — and will continue to do so. In Eve, I am a fellow diplomat for another player alliance. While I am not near as well known as Vile Rat, I hope some day to be able to be in the company of such men. Today we must realize, as Sean would say, this attack is not something we can fix with war. We must do as Sean would want and keep striving for peace, every day, no matter what difficulties we face. One man changed the way many people play this game — changed it for the better — and for that he will always be remembered.

100th • from page 1 introduced during a ceremony held on the plant’s parking lot. Brauks and Enke were respectively joined at the event by their wives, JoAnn and Chirley. Mayor Dixon Somerville read a proclamation and Doug Dunlap, president of First State Community Bank, representing the Owensville Chamber of Commerce, delivered comments on the firm’s financial impact on the Owensville community. Dunlap noted the firm’s stable workforce and longtime community involvement by its personnel as a great asset to the city’s well-being. City and chamber officials joined company management personnel for a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the firm’s 100th anniversary. Food catered by Swiss Meats and Sausage was served throughout the afternoon as tours of the plant were given. Gary Rice and Lance Strokecker of Astral Glass in New Haven demonstrated the art of creating hand blown glass items throughout the event. EMHART GLASS personnel gathered Friday for a group photo.

EMHART EMPLOYEE Todd Buddemeyer was joined by family members Friday for a tour of the plant’s second floor casting department during a 100th anniversary open house for the local refractory manufacturing plant. RICK GOODMAN (far left) gives visitors to the open house an overview of the plant’s materials mixing operation. The plant used a record 2.6 million pounds of materials in 2011 to manufacture refractory components shipped to countries on every continent except Antarctica, according to company officials.

Turning the Luck Around Vying to be crowned queen of the 2012 Fall Homecoming festivities at Owensville High School include the senior trio (sitting, from left) of Katlin Walton, Hannah Jose and Asalee Biagioli. Standing behind them (from left) are underclassmen attendants Amanda Lauer (junior), Hailey Diestelkamp (freshman), Erika Ellis (freshman), Kristen Charboneau (sophomore), Sue Meyer (sophomore) and Kayla Lowder (junior). Coronation of the 2012 Fall Homecoming Queen and her court will take place Friday night before kickoff of the Gasconade County Bowl football game between Owensville and Hermann. A bonfire is scheduled to take place after the game behind the football practice field and a dance at the Owensville VFW Hall will occur on Saturday, Sept. 22 from 8-11 p.m. Tickets will be required to attend the dance. They are $3 in advance or $5 at the door. Students wishing to bring guests to the dance need to fill out a form and have it approved by the office before Friday. The annual homecoming parade will take place on the R-2 campus beginning at 10 a.m., with the route encompassing OES, OMS and OHS. Elementary students from Gerald will be bussed in to watch the parade that will also be broadcast on KTUI-AM 1560 and on Channel 95 for those residents with Fidelity Cable TV service.

Turning • from page 17 Dale Long. Defeating Hermann’s Bearcats each of the last five years, Owensville will look to continue their stranglehold on the Gasconade County Bowl trophy with a victory

at Dutchmen Field Friday. With plenty of food, fun and alumni for tail-great activities Friday night, all fans are encouraged to come out and support the Dutchmen as they face the Bearcats.

Settle • from page 17 good start in their own tournament. Needing four runs in the top of the fifth, the Dutchgirls held off a late Belle rally for a 7-5 victory in the tournament opener for both teams. Playing through a scoreless first inning, Owensville took advantage of production from the bottom of their lineup. Gruenloh, Jaelyn Gauer and Nelson all reached on errors to open the inning with Gruenloh scoring on one of them. Freshman third baseman Alayna Abney came through with a twoRBI single scoring Gauer and Nelson for a 3-0 lead. In the bottom of the second, Belle got one of those runs back thanks to two hits, a walk and an error cutting the Dutchgirl lead to 3-1. Looking to reclaim the lead in the bottom of the third, the Lady Tigers cashed in two hits and a pair of Dutchgirl errors for three runs and a 4-3 lead after three innings. Still trailing by a run entering the top of the fifth, the Owensville offense went back to work. Morgan Belloir and Katie Havelka both singled and scored to give OHS a 5-4 lead. Smith helped her own cause reaching on an error and scoring on an RBI single from Gruenloh.

After Nelson reached on a twoout single, she started towards second base to allow Gruenloh to score before the third out was recorded giving Owensville a 7-3 lead. Scoring ceased until the bottom of the sixth inning when Belle’s Macie Kinsey launched a two-run home run to dead center field cutting the Dutchgirl lead in half to 7-5 after six innings. Retiring the Lady Tigers in order in the bottom of the seventh, Smith picked up her third win of 2012. Union also defeated Belle by a score of 6-3 in the second of three games during the tournament. Prior to the rescheduled tournament Saturday, the Dutchgirls split a pair of Four Rivers Conference (FRC) games last week. Led by three hits and three RBIs from Gauer, Owensville gave Nagel his first FRC victory in a 7-0 win on the road at Hermann last Tuesday. Two nights later at Lions Field, Union’s Lady Wildcats put their undefeated record on the line against the host Dutchgirls. Even with a five-run second inning cutting their deficit to 8-5, Owensville missed out on several scoring opportunities throughout the remainder of their 8-5 loss. There is the possibility these two teams could meet again in districts.

Fulton • from page 17 (5th), Logan Moritz (11th), Marc Richardson (16th) and Miles McKinney (23rd). “The boys did a great job and will continue to get better as the season goes on,” said Gann. With only three girls competing, the OMS Dutchgirls were not able to register a team score. That did not stop Adriene Aubuchon from crossing the finish line in 20th place with a time of 11:20.85. Her finish was good for one of the last medals in the race. “We’re hoping to have more girls come out next year,” said Gann. Up next on the racing docket was the varsity boys in Hornet country. Without Caleb Mundwiller and Jacob Linders in the race, Candrl’s Dutchmen (250) just missed the middle of the team standings taking 11th place. Freshman Danny Herrera led the Dutchmen with a 31st place time of 18:13.92. Blaine McKinney was right behind Herrera in 32nd. “Danny (Herrera) is running awesome as a freshman at the varsity level,” said Candrl. “Blaine (McKinney) has been a pillar for the team at meets and practice so far this season.” Fellow freshman Wyatt Harrell took 40th and senior Matt Wills was just outside the middle of the pack finishing in 74th place. Rounding out the varsity Dutchmen in Fulton were Alynn Chaney (97th) and Keith Wehmeyer (103rd). Candrl’s varsity Dutchgirls went into Fulton going for more championship hardware to begin the second half of racing. Even though Helias (72) edged the Dutchgirls (76) in the team standings, Hannah Baehr and Shay-

lyn Uzzle added to their already growing collection of medals. Baehr took fourth in 20:29.72 while Uzzle was 16th in 21:18.80. Finishing inside the top 60 and contributing to Owensville’s team finish were Emily Koepke (29th), Emmy Dunlap (30th), Kayla Charboneau (34th), Megan Dunlap (50th) and Sue Meyer (59th). Three races into the season, Austin Brocato now has three medals. With only 15 medals given out in the JV boys race, Brocato nearly grabbed the last one taking 14th. Landon McKinney also missed another medal by a little more than a second finishing 17th. Out of nine scoring teams, the JV Dutchmen (128) placed sixth. To end a busy morning of racing, the JV Dutchgirls had five girls in the top 14 and needed everyone one of them to gain some revenge for their varsity counterparts. Led by junior Haylee Reid, Candrl’s JV Dutchgirls occupied four of the top six positions. “Haylee (Reid) ran a gutsy race trying to get the win,” said Candrl. Finishing behind Reid in third place was Anna Koepke (4th), Ali Doll (5th) and Anna Nicks (6th). Alli Czeschin (14th) grabbed one of the last medal positions to help give her team the title. “Alli (Czeschin) dropped a significant amount of time this week to seal the deal for the team to win the meet.” Other JV Dutchgirls on the championship team were Jessica Fudge (40th), Haley Record (54th) and Katelin Pack (57th). Complete results can be found by going to and searching for Fulton Invitational.

Walnut residents provide input for street project BY LINDA TREST Republican Staff Writer It was standing room only at the Board of Alderman’s regular monthly meeting last Thursday. Most of the people in the room were there to express their opinion on the city’s decision to put in flat curbing on Walnut Street. Tommie Lowe was on the agenda to speak to the board. He noted that he was speaking as a private citizen - not as the chief of police, a position he has held for several years. Lowe lives on Meadow, but must use Walnut Street to access his home. He noted that he was concerned that the city planned to stop the chip and seal surface 40 feet from where that street meets Meadow. The proposed flat curbing also concerns Lowe. He told the board that since there was some rollback curbing already in place on Walnut, he felt that adding flat curbing would give the street a piecedtogether appearance. Ward 2 Alderman Ed Adams said that he did not have a problem taking the surface all the way to Meadow. Later the aldermen voted to do just that. Several residents spoke out against flat curbing. They had learned that they would need to install culverts under their driveways to channel rain water. One woman said she lives at an intersection with an existing culvert. She stated that she digs the culvert clear when it begins to back up. “The city can’t keep that

culvert open now. How will they manage all these other culverts?” she wondered. Street and Water Commissioner Nick Grube asked that the woman call and notify the city if the existing culvert ever backs up again. “We just need to know when there’s a problem,” he said, “and we’ll be happy to fix it.” Most homeowners seemed concerned that their yards would flood with flat curbing. Although the aldermen tried to assure them this wouldn’t be a problem, the homeowners didn’t seem convinced. Also at issue was the decision to require curbing. Many felt that it should be at the city’s expense. Some said it would create a hardship for them to pay for the curbing now. It was noted that flat curbing costs $2 per foot less than rollback curbing, yet the majority still wanted the more expensive rollback. Some residents will need to have the city initially pay for curbing and then they would have 12 months in which to pay the city. It was suggested to the aldermen that perhaps the city could allow two years for residents to pay back the cost. Ironically, for those who finance with the city - even though no interest will be charged - the cost will be much steeper. That is because any time the city conducts business with a contractor, a prevailing wage rate is charged. If a private citizen contracts directly with the contractor, a lower rate would be charged. Ward 1 Alderman Jordan Lottmann addressed the crowd. He told

them that he was pleased to get the input of so many citizens concerning the street project. However, he continued, he wished it had come a little sooner. “We have spent a lot of time making decisions on this project. We wanted the input from the residents, but no one ever came to our meetings. Tonight you have let us know how you feel. That’s what we wanted all along,” he said. Dan Angell, another resident on Meadow asked the board to install a concrete swale at the intersection of his street with Walnut. A swale collects and diverts storm water runoff from streets, driveways and rooftops. They may be natural or man-made. “Treat Meadow as a private driveway,” he urged the board. “Mr. Lowe and I will pay for the swale.” Meadow has never been officially accepted as a city street. There are three houses currently located on it. After much discussion, Lottmann made a motion that the other aldermen unanimously approved: Change plans to rollback curbing the entire length of Walnut Street, install concrete swale at the Meadow intersection, and replace existing square curbing with rollback curbing at city’s expense. Adams suggested that other swales need to be put in on South Street. City Attorney Joe Purschke advised that would need to done with a change order. A special meeting will be held today, at 6 p.m. at city hall to approve the changes.

Blood drive at GES draws huge number of donors The turnout for the blood drive at Gerald Elementary School last Thursday drew such a large crowd that Red Cross workers had to return to St. Louis for more supplies. In photo above, Sue Altemeyer, in front, and Jackie Gray, both GES staff members take their turn on the giving chairs. About 115 would-be-donors signed up to give blood and 56 productive units of blood were taken. School Nurse Jessica Fisher, who organized the blood drive, says that amount will help save 168 lives. The cafeteria was lined with people intending to give blood, but it became apparent that not would be able to as the 7 p.m. deadline loomed. Fisher credited the large turnout to an incentive provided by the Red Cross. Any GES student who had someone donate blood in their name was awarded a Little Hero certificate and a watch. 95 students earned the award. Mrs. Todisman’s kindergarten class had the most students with people donating in their name. For their efforts, the Red Cross will provide them with a pizza party in the near future. Even those who were not able to donate blood before the drive ended, were credited with being there for the students. Fisher says about 30 people were prepared to donate, when the drive ended.

539 vehicles stopped last weekend at checkpoints The Franklin County Sheriff's Office conducted three sobriety checkpoints on Sept. 15-16,in the eastern part of the county. 539 vehicles were checked. As a result of these efforts three violators were arrested for driving while intoxicated, two minor in possession of

alcohol by consumption were cited, three suspended/revoked driver's license violators were arrested, two fugitives were apprehended, and one drug arrest was made. There were also warnings given for 65 non-hazardous moving violations. A search warrant was obtained

for the blood of one driving while intoxicated violator due to the violator refusing to submit to a breath test. Sobriety checkpoints are done in cooperation with Missouri Department of Transportation. Funding to pay deputies overtime are obtained through grants.

Hardware Hints By Bob anderson

It’s about that time again for another energy legislation update on light bulbs. Beginning with July 14, 2012, many 4 and 8 foot T12 size bulbs could no longer be manufactured. Modified T12 bulbs will become available but will be significantly higher due to rare earth phosphors needed in the manufacturing process in order to meet the new there’s a shocker. Fixtures do not have to be changed to convert from a T12 bulb to the T8 bulb. You can just replace the ballast which usually costs more than buying a new fixture. However, savings are expected to be between 22% and 40% or about a 14-18 month payback. Another benefit is that you will have less light output loss over the life of the bulb, which means it will stay brighter, longer. Now I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that if the world is supposed to end on December 21st, you might want to wait a little while before converting. Just sayin’.

all outdoors Outdoors in the Ozarks Various outdoor topics BY LARRY DABLEMONT Mr. Dablemont is a contributing writer to various syndicated newspapers as well as author of “Outdoors in the Ozarks”. books and “The Lightnin’ Ridge” journal. He is also a guest to speaker on radio stations and to various organizations. He can be reached by e-mail at: lightninridge@alltel. net.

After the article on great horned owls, a lady reader contacted me and said that she had been out jogging late in the afternoon in October of last year when an owl came down on her head and knocked her down. She said its talon shad cut her scalp a little. She said the same thing happened again this past April, perhaps the same owl. She asked if I knew why it would have done that. Of course there could be some logical reason. In April, it might have been an owl with owlets nearby, thinking a jogger would be of danger of harming them. In October, it might have seen her hair and thought she was a rabbit, running along. You can never know for sure what makes wild creatures do strange things. Owls are strange creatures, and I know they have good night vision, but maybe during daylight hours they don’t see as well. There’s no way to know why an owl would strike someone with that kind of force, maybe it is a deranged owl that saw someone shoot his daddy when he was just young and wants to take out his revenge on humans. But it happens on occasion, and you can come up with your own conclusions. It is difficult to imagine that a bird weighing only 3 to 4 pounds could pack the kind of wallop a great horned owl can deliver. If you remove the feathers from that owl, his body is amazingly scrawny looking. Their size is attributable to about half feathers. A friend of mine was sitting in a tree stand bow hunting in years past when a red-tailed hawk dived down on him and knocked his hat off. He said it was a strong blow, and it hurt. I have written for many years that wild creatures are unpredictable and you cannot always find an answer for what happens. When the ‘experts’ start telling you what a wild animal will or won’t do, they haven’t spent enough time in the woods. ‘Always’, and ‘never’ are words which do not fit in nature. From what I have seen, there are more young turkey poults per hen this September than there have been in a long time. Last year was a very good hatch, and I believe this year is better. That bodes well for spring turkey hunters for the next few years. Of course, I will look forward to getting out in the woods in October hunting squirrels and turkeys, but some of those young poults are just a little bigger than pheasants right now. Still, they grow very fast when there’s plenty to eat. Knowing how good they are to eat makes it hard to pass up an eight or ten pound turkey, but if you shoot one that small, it doesn’t make a good story. An outdoor writer often has to find different ways to tell the truth about things. You have to say, ‘boy I got a nice turkey yesterday’and then change the subject to how pretty the woods are or how dry it has been or how you think you might have

seen a black bear, knowing all the time that it was black angus calf. I asked a friend of mine last year how big his fall turkey was and he mumbled something like, ‘I dunno,--about fifteen or sixteen or eight pounds.’ There’s a lot of that kind of estimating goes on with October turkeys. Last fall, a Conservation Department media spokesman was on television talking about the increase in the spring turkey hatch. He figured he had to come up with something, so he said there was an increase of about one percent. Some friends and I who spend a lot of time in the woods had a good laugh about that, knowing that you couldn’t measure a one percent increase in wild turkeys. The actual increase seemed to us, after seeing flocks of turkeys in September and October, to be about 25 to 40 percent. But of course all over the state, that figure varies… in the west Ozarks, the increase seemed impressive, but in the eastern Ozarks other outdoorsmen said they didn’t see that kind of increase. I think this year there was just as good a hatch as last year and maybe better. Another reader called me this week and told me he and his son had found a deer, dieing and partially paralyzed. He said he called the Conservation Department offices in Springfield, Mo. and a lady there told him the deer was dying from a neurological disease caused by biting flies. He asked her if it was okay to kill it and eat it and she told him it was! I talked him out of that idea in a hurry. In the first place, just hearing about what the deer over the phone doesn’t tell you for sure that it is the blue-tongue disease that have killed so many deer, but even if it is, no one should ever, ever, ever, eat any sick deer or any other wild meat from a diseased animal. Just don’t ever do it. If there is a question, put the animal out of its misery and leave it there. Coyotes and buzzards and other carrion eaters will devour it. The general public makes a mistake in thinking the Conservation Departments are the last word in topics dealing with nature and wild creatures. If you’re talking about biologists from 40 years ago, things were different. Most of them were people who had grown up outdoors and lived their lives outdoors. Today some of those experts and authorities spend almost all their time in an office and live in a city suburb. There was no better example of that than the “gobble-teers” project the Missouri Department of Conservation under took a couple of years back. They asked outdoor enthusiasts to keep a log of wild gobblers that gobbled in the spring, and the times and repetitions. This was going to be used to “determine the best time to open the wild turkey hunting season”, something that was figured out long ago by far better biologists, the ones who

MDC holding open houses on potential paddlefish permit changes The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is considering changes to the Wildlife Code of Missouri that would require a new yearly, low-cost paddlefish permit for sport snaggers. The changes would also implement a Telecheck reporting system, such as is used for deer and turkey, for harvested paddlefish. According to MDC, these permit changes will provide the Department with more and better information to improve its statewide paddlefish management efforts. Information would include where fishing and harvest occur throughout the state, the number of people who fish for paddlefish, and the numbers and sizes of paddlefish harvested. Paddlefish snaggers are currently required to have a general fishing permit. Paddlefish snaggers and others are invited to learn more about the potential permit changes at one of the following MDC public openhouse forums: Oct. 18, 5-7 p.m., MDC Springfield Conservation Nature Center, 4601 S Nature Center Way Oct. 24, 5-7 p.m., MDC Central Regional Office, 3500 East Gans Road off RT 63 in Columbia Oct. 25, 5-7 p.m., Warsaw Community Building, 181 W. Harrison Oct. 29, 5-7 p.m., MDC Cape Girardeau Nature Center, 2289 County Park Drive

Oct. 30, 5-7 p.m., MDC St. Louis Regional Office, 2360 Hwy D in St. Charles For more on the open houses, contact MDC Public Involvement Coordinator Michele Baumer at 573-522-4115, ext. 3350, or Paddlefish snaggers can also share comments about the potential permit changes online at mdc. According to MDC Fisheries Management Biologist Trish Yasger, paddlefish are highly valued by both sport and commercial fishers, and MDC’s paddlefish stocking and management help make Missouri a great place to fish. “Missouri is a great place to snag for paddlefish,” Yasger says, “and Lake of the Ozarks, Harry S. Truman Reservoir and Table Rock Lake offer some of the best paddlefish snagging in the country. Without MDC stocking these fisheries, and our other paddlefish management practices, paddlefish numbers would sharply decline in Missouri, reducing harvest opportunities for both sport snaggers and commercial fishermen.” She explains that no natural reproduction of paddlefish has been observed in these lakes so MDC maintains paddlefish numbers with annual stockings of fingerlings from its Blind Pony Hatchery near Sweet Springs in Saline County.

worked to bring wild turkeys back to the Ozarks in the first place. The project was laughable, something like you would expect of a seventh grade science class. The national wild turkey federation put up a shotgun to be given to some, “gobble-teer” by a drawing, so they got a lot of participants. One of them told me… “How are they going to know if you are out there at daylight each day?… you can just say you were, and make up the number of gobblers you hear. I just want to win a shotgun.” All the money and time put into that was useless, it gave no reliable information not already collected decades before. Maybe the MDC officials involved thought wild gob-

blers had changed into a different kind of creature, and it all had to be reevaluated. Anyway, I don’t think you will see any change to the turkey season, but it gives some of those office-bound experts something to do at their desks, for hours and hours, pouring over the statistics gained by their “gobble-teers.” There are so many other projects just as useless, but there is money to spend, so that’s a good way to spend it. News agencies in the state pay little attention anymore to the actual back grounds and qualifications of people who give them their expert information; they just take it and use it as the gospel.

“We collect about a dozen paddlefish broodstock from the reservoirs each spring and take them to our Blind Pony Hatchery, where eggs are collected and fertilized,” she says. “The fry are raised at the hatchery until October. We then stock almost 40,000, 10-to12-inch fingerlings, with about 15,000 in Lake of the Ozarks, 15,000 in Truman Reservoir and about 7,500 in Table Rock Lake.” She adds that MDC biologists have been studying these prehistoric fish since at least the 1960s. “Angler surveys and other research and monitoring efforts have helped staff assess reservoir populations, but these efforts have not provided the information we really need to best manage paddlefish,” she says. “We really need to know where fishing and harvest occur throughout the state, the number of people who fish for paddlefish, and the numbers and sizes of paddlefish harvested.” Abundant, naturally reproducing paddlefish populations were historically found in Missouri’s two big rivers, the Missouri and Mississippi, and their larger tributaries. Paddlefish populations have declined over the last 100-plus years, primarily because of habitat

alterations. “The construction and operation of dams have impacted paddlefish populations across their range,” Yasger says. “One of the biggest impacts to Missouri’s paddlefish populations was the construction of Truman Dam, which blocked spawning migrations out of Lake of the Ozarks and flooded historical spawning areas upstream around Osceola on the Osage River.” She adds that illegal harvest of paddlefish for their caviar and meat has also caused declines in their numbers. “Paddlefish numbers may also be threatened by growing numbers of invasive Asian carp and zebra mussels, primarily related to competition for food such as plankton.” The paddlefish is one of only two living species from an ancient family of freshwater fishes. Paddlefish can live more than 30 years, grow to 7 feet in length and reach 160 pounds. The Missouri state record is 139 pounds and 4 ounces caught at Table Rock Lake in March 2002. Paddlefish reach sexual maturity in reservoirs at 5 to 6 years for males and 7 to 8 years for females. Growth is slower in rivers.

Thank You…

Words seem inadequate to thank everyone for your care, concern, cards, prayers and visits during the illness of our dear one,

Elmer Greunke, and for the work done for us at our home. We are grateful for your visits and prayers at the hospital, the care and compassion shown of the staff at Capital Region Medical Center and Goldschmidt Cancer Center. We thank Rick and the staff of Gottenstroeter Funeral Home, Pastors Landgraf and Kotila for their comforting words, Deb as organist, Leland for the solo and the church council members as pallbearers. We appreciate the flowers, plants, memorials and the food brought to our home, chapel, and church and thank the dear ladies of St. John for preparing and serving the wonderful lunch. May God bless each of you who came to the chapel and funeral to give us your sympathy and support and for all the cards.

Pearl Greunke Darren, Denise, Brandon, and Lauren Schmiemeier

State law requires government entities at all levels, from water districts to city councils and school boards, to place notices of many of their activities in a legal newspaper. This is a legal newspaper. A printed notice in this newspaper can’t be hacked into like a website. It’s permanent. The date in the corner proves it was printed when required. It can be trusted without question in these times when trust in government is so low. Would a similar notice posted somewhere on the internet provide the same measure of transparency? The answer to that is obvious. No, it would not.
