the Eastside Park playground. Shuler was authorized to seek bids for the border material that will be used to hold the fall material out of the grass and for fencing around the area. As part of the discussion about these bids, Shuler noted that the estimate for the border is $3,830 and the current limit set by the city to not seek bids is $2,500. He said that materials have increased in price since that amount was approved and the city might need to look at increasing it. It was mentioned that other local entities have recently increased the amount needed to seek bids due to increasing costs. In discussing the new park area, Shuler said it will have two ADA ramps, a concrete walkway from the parking lot to the playground, a wheelchair swing and two additional car seat-like handicapped accessible swings. Work on the

park will continue as materials are received and weather allows. Shuler also updated the board on the department’s tree plan and said a large Oak tree at Moberly Park recently died. He said that utilizing the tree nursery and other sources, the parks have about the right number of trees. All restroom facilities, fountains, etc., have been winterized and Shuler said things went good during the Missouri Day Festival. He also noted that rental of the Rock Barn and the shelter house at Upper Moberly Park has increased. Board President Duane Helmandollar said the facilities committee will likely hold a meeting next week. The next regular meeting of the park board is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Eastside Park Status Discussed

Discus Throwing Area For R-9 District OK’d The Trenton Park Board voted to allow construction of a discus throwing area near the Ebbe Sports Complex and heard a report on the status of a handicapped accessible area at Eastside Park during a meeting held on Wednesday evening. The board approved allowing the Trenton R-9 School District to construct a permanent concrete discus throwing area east of the restroom facility at the Ebbe Sports Complex. The area, which is in what Park Superintendent Jason Shuler called a “dead corner,” will be accessible but also out of the way. It will include a chain link fence around it and will be maintained by the school district, although the park department will mow around it. Shuler gave an update on the handicapped accessible area that is being developed at

Pirates Get Road Sweep In Iowa Falls On 18 occasions in the first half on Tuesday night in Iowa Falls, IA, the North Central Missouri College women’s basketball team turned over the ball. Yet, as the two squads traversed toward the locker rooms at the break, the Pirates held a 36-21 lead. North Central’s defense is going to be something the Pirates will be able to fall back on this season. In the end, North Central’s offense got things going and the defense continued to suffocate the host Ellsworth Panthers as the Lady Pirates rode out of town 72-43 winners. “I thought defensively we played pretty well,� North Central Head Coach Jenni Croy said. “We held them to 21 points in the first half and I thought that was big. We were frustrated with our turnovers, though, and we talked about pushing the ball but being under control.� The Pirates’ defense continued to shine in the third quarter, holding Ellsworth to just eight points for a secondstraight frame. The offense meanwhile, came to life as freshmen guards Kortlyn Rounkles and Lily Osborn began knocking down shots and any hopes the home team had of making a comeback were quickly erased. Rounkles would lead NCMC with 19 points, seven rebounds and six assists. Osborn followed, scoring 13 points. “In the third quarter we kind of caught fire a little bit,� Croy said. “If I have (Rounkles and Osborn) scoring, it is pretty tough (for opposing teams). We were coming down, making four or five passes and it was giving us a lot of open looks in that quarter.� The 29-point victory moved the North Central women to 21 overall on the season. NORTH CENTRAL MEN The men’s game featured two teams with undefeated 20 records. When the game ended, however, it was North Central whose perfect mark was still intact as the Pirates escaped Iowa Falls with an 84See Ellsworth, Page 3

North Central’s men’s basketball program celebrates a national tournament bid-clinching victory last March at the Ketcham Community Center. The Pirates will play at the KCC for the first time this season tonight, hosting the Graceland University junior varsity at 8 o’clock.


Pirates Hungry For More After First National Tourney Run The north wall in head coach Jeremy Esry’s office is littered with a dozen or so framed 8x10 pictures. Each one depicts a moment from the end of last season. There is a dunk from the program’s first Region XVI championship and a crowd shot showing the packed stands at the Ketcham Community Center during the district championship game that propelled the Pirates into the NJCAA Division II  National Tournament. Almost a year later, the Pirates are back to basketball with a banner proudly hanging in the upper echelons of the Ketcham Community Center. The first-ever trip to the national tournament has fueled a desire within the program to return to Danville, IL again this season. “I think our sophomores are doing a good job of, not necessarily being cocky, but being confident in how we do things around here,� Esry said. “They are relaying that to our freshmen. They know the expectations, they know we kind of have a target on our back this year. We are attacking every practice like we are playing for a region title or a national tournament bid. They are doing a really good job, right now, of being focused and I think that is the key for us.� The sophomores Esry refers to are Quinan Reives, Marty Jackson, Michael Horton and Rayonte Childs. Demarius Houston was with the team last year as well but was redshirted. He returns this season as a redshirt freshman to round out the Pirates five returnees from a year ago. Of those coming back, the Pirates will look to lean on Jackson and Reives this

year. Both played big roles in North Central’s region championship season. Jackson averaged 9.9 points and 5.4 rebounds per game last year while Reives posted averages of 9.3 points and 5.8 boards. Jackson was a first-team all-region selection and Rieves was named to the second team. “We don’t have much size, but it is nice

that the size we do have coming back is experienced,� Esry said of his two returning forwards. “Both Marty and Quinan had double-doubles for us in the national tournament last year in different games. The have done a great job of controlling rebounds and they can stretch the floor a little bit. They are just match-up problems for other teams.� In addition to the five returnees, North Central welcomes 12 newcomers - nine freshmen, one transfer redshirt freshman and two transfer sophomores. On the roster this year North Central has a total of seven players from the St. Louis metro area. Damien Loyd, a point guard, comes in from Kirkwood High School and figures to be the Pirates’ starting point guard. He is a quick, good defensive player who also showed an ability to score at the high school level, averaging over 20 points per game for the Pioneers. Atavian Butler from McCluer North High School and Jeramy Shaw of Valley Park High School also come in from the St. Louis area and should present the Pirates with some athletic options at the two or three spots. “I really like our freshman class,� Esry said. “We really hit St. Louis hard and I think we got some really good pieces out of there. Damien is a point guard, really quick and I think the Pirate fans are really going to love watching him play. Jeramy is a 6-6 guard who can do a little bit of everything and he will be really fun to watch in transition. Then Atavian is the same way. He is really similar to (former See NCMC Men, Page 3

The Grundy R-5 Junior High School basketball teams each picked up wins on Friday, Nov. 1 on the road at East Harrison in Cainsville. Grundy scored its first girls win of the year with a 27-24 victory and the boys followed suit, topping East Harrison 51-12. In the girls game, Grundy was paced by 13 points from Adysan Rains. Anna Fordyce and Skylar Bonnett finished with six and four points respectively. The Grundy boys, meanwhile, got 13 points from Zach Cross and 11 from Corbin Axtell. The Grundy Teams traveled to Jamesport this week for the Tri-County Tournament. Both teams slipped past Pattonsburg narrowly as the girls won 24-23 and the boys held on for a 37-35 victory. In the girls game, Fordyce and Landry Oaks each scored six points to pace the Panthers. The Grundy boys, meanwhile, got 26 points from Axtell The Grundy girls also faced off with Mercer earlier in the week, falling 2520. Rains had 12 points to lead Grundy in the loss while Bonnett added four points. The Grundy boys played their second-round game on Thursday night against Bishop Hogan.

Pierce Rash Wins Power Points Prize Pierce Rash of Galt is the local winner of the weekly Power Points contest for week 9. Rash tallied a total of 115 points, earning him the $30 local prize. Rash’s total was not enough to net him the national grand prize for the week as multiple scores of 132 points were turned in. Local sponsors of the weekly Power Points contest include Farmers Bank of Northern Missouri, Barnes-Baker, HyVee, ServeLink, T& L Auto and Chumbley’s.


NCMC Women Out To Right The Ship After two 20-plus win seasons, two region title game appearances - the second resulting in the program’s seventh Region XVI championship - the North Central Missouri College women’s basketball team came crashing down to earth. In the 2018-2019 season, the Pirates scuffled to a 7-20 overall record. The seven wins are the fewest for a single season since the program was re-introduced at North Central prior to the 1998-1999 season. But a new year has brought new perspective - and a new team. North Central rolls into the 2019-2020 season with a completely rebuilt roster. The Pirates return just two players from last year’s squad and the roster is rounded out by 11 freshmen - many of whom come from local schools. “Last winter, during the season, when we were working on recruiting, we knew what we needed,� North Central Head Coach Jenni Croy said. “I think we strayed away a little bit from what works with our program and what we like to do in recruiting the year before and we lost out on a lot of players. This year we really worked hard on focusing on those local kids who were all about basketball and we

did that.� The incoming talent immediately puts North Central on a different level than the Lady Pirates found themselves at last season. A trio of guards in the freshman class are expected to make an immediate impact for the NCMC women. Lily Osborn from Stanberry and Brittney McKay from Grain Valley will be starters for the Pirates this year as will Kortlyn Rounkles, who was redshirted at Johnson County Community College last year after graduating from Southwest Livingston in Ludlow. She transfers to NCMC with two years of eligibility still remaining. “Those three guards are a solid unit together,� Croy said. “Each day I think they learn each other’s ways and play together better.� Osborn made a living in the high school ranks with a very good step-back threepointer move. That has carried over to the junior college ranks and she has picked up the game at this level very quickly. Croy sees a lot of similarities between Osborn and another guard that helped lead NCMC  to a region title just two seasons ago. “I hate to compare former players to current players, but - for those who have See Lady Pirates, Page 3

Pirate) Jordan Reece. I hate putting that out there because Jordan is one of the best athletes we have ever had, but they are similar. Atavian might be a little stronger while Jordan was probably a little more bouncy, but they both can do really good things.” Transferring in is Jonathan Richmond from Kansas City, Kansas, Community College. Richmond originally went to KCK out of Hickman High School in Columbia. Pirate fans might remember his older brother - Andrew Berry. All Berry did at NCMC was set the program record for career rebounds. At 6-7 and 265 pounds, Richmond has the build to continue his family’s legacy of pulling down boards for the Pirates. “Andrew was the best rebounder we ever had here,” Esry said. “Jon probably doesn’t bring that as much, but he maybe has a little better offensive touch than Andrew did around the rim. That rebounding

mentality, Jon is still trying to find that, but it is nice to get former players’ brothers on the team and kind of carry on that tradition.” Also transferring in is TJ Babikir, a North Kansas City product who transfers in from NCAA Division II school Lincoln University in Jefferson City. Babikir will likely start for the Pirates right off the bat. With the team built, Esry and the Pirates embark on the mission to defend the region title against St. Louis and Metropolitan (Kansas City) community colleges. North Central has always been at a bit of a disadvantage having to recruit against the hometown community colleges in the two major metro areas in the state. But North Central’s region title a year ago has helped the Pirates a bit, as seen by the influx of St. Louis area talent on this year’s roster. Right now, the region title could be any one of the three schools’ to win. “I don’t know much about St. Louis yet, but we have seen Metropolitan-Penn Val-

ley play twice,” Esry said. “They look really good. They have a couple of kids we went after and didn’t get and then they have a couple of kids who transferred back from Division I to a Division II school. So I think they will be really tallented. It’s always going to be a battle because everybody knows each other. It will be interesting, though, and I think it should be four really good games for us.” North Central opened the season with a pair of victories at the McDonald’s Classic at State Fair Community College in Sedalia last weekend and followed it up with a third-straight win at Ellsworth Community College in Iowa Falls, IA on Tuesday. North Central opens the home portion of its schedule tonight (Friday), playing host to the Graceland University junior varsity at 8 o’clock in the Ketcham Community Center. North Central is home on Saturday as well, playing host to Parkland College. That game tips off at 3 p.m.

75 victory. For the Pirates, the second half was the key element. North Central trailed Ellsworth by nine at halftime, but outscored the host school by 18 points in the second half to rally back and earn the win. “Once again our guys showed a lot of fight and toughness to come from behind in the second half and get a road win,” Pirates’ Head Coach Jeremy Esry said. “I thought we played well for 40 minutes and Ellsworth hit some tough shots in the first half to get them the lead. Our guys responded by locking down on the defensive end and limiting Ellsworth to one shot.” The Pirates were paced by

Atavian Butler, who scored 22 points in the win. Marty Jackson added 15 points, Jeramy Shaw had 13 and Damien Loyd finished with 12 to round out the double-digit scorers for North Central. UP NEXT Both North Central squads are home twice this weekend. The women and men each host the Graceland University junior varsity today (Friday). The women tip off in the Ketcham Community Center at 4 o’clock and the men will begin play at 8. On Saturday, the North Central women will host the Livin’ The Dream women’s exhibition team at 1 p.m. and the men will follow, hosting Parkland College at 3 o’clock. Parkland College is ranked seventh in the nation in the NJCAA Division II preseason poll.

Lady Pirates’ Success Hinges On Freshman-Heavy Squad Continued From Page 2 followed our program - Lily Osborn resembles Kendey Eaton in a lot of ways,” Croy said. “She can score, she defends well and just has a really good presence about her on the court. We expect her to be one of our top guards. She is just an all-around good player who is just going to continue to get better and better.” Another freshman who will be a starter for North Central is Kennedie Kieffer. The Pirates have a rich history of all-region post players and Kieffer could very well be the next on that list. At 6-0, she has good height. But it is her work ethic that has impressed Croy the most. “Kennedie is like a sponge,” Croy said. “She wants to learn and absorbs everything you tell her on the court. She is really physical under the basket and we are going to go to her anytime we can get her on a post up. She has to have the ball in her hands and that’s what we have kind of been preaching to the guards, ‘you have got to see her,’ and she works on her post moves constantly. I think she is probably going to be one of the best, if not the best, legit post player to come through here because of her work ethic and her willingness to figure it all out.” While last year was a forgettable one for the Pirates, North Central does return two players from that squad who certainly have roles on this year’s team. Guard Dymeria Guillory and forward Da’Briauna Bables

will both see ample time on the floor this season for the Pirates. Guillory will slide in with Osborn, Rounkles and McKay to give North Central a very formidable guard rotation. Bables, meanwhile, gives Trenton another solid post option. She has also grown into a leadership role - something that a team featuring 11 freshmen can really use. “Da’Briauna is a great kid,” Croy said. “She was quiet last year, didn’t really open up and this year the girls voted her as a team captain. She has taken that leadership role and really takes pride in the team. She gets excited for each kid when they have success. We have started her some, we haven’t started her some and she is a kid who handles that and always has the best outlook for the team in mind.” With the amount of guard talent this squad has, North Central has the ability to run a four-guard lineup on the court, something the Pirates plan to

do this year based on matchups. “We can go with a big lineup because we have size, but we can go with a quick lineup, too,” Croy said. “It just depends on what the other team’s match-up looks like for us. We will probably switch that up all year long.” St. Louis has traditionally been the team to beat in Region XVI over the past few years, but that school underwent a coaching change in the offseason, leaving the Archers as a bit of a wild card. Metropolitan Community College has been on the rise under Marcus Harvey, who also coaches the men’s team at that school, so this year’s region has a wide open feel to it. Croy sees a lot of similarities between this year’s North Central team and past Lady Pirate teams that have closed the season by hoisting a region championship. “This group resembles a lot of the past groups we have had that won the region,” Croy

said. “How they practice, how they lift, how they get along that’s exciting to see. With this group we have brought in, it is a fresh start for us. They are coming together. We still have a lot to work on with 11 players who have never played college basketball before, but I see this group continuing to grow and adapt to the game each and every day.” Key to the team’s overall success will be getting the

freshmen-heavy roster accustomed to college-level basketball. So far, North Central has been on track for that, starting off the season 2-1. NCMC went 1-1 at the Johnson County Classic last weekend and picking up a lopsided victory at Ellsworth Community College on Tuesday. Despite the positive start, there is plenty to work on. The Pirates have struggled with turnovers

early and are still trying to find that happy medium between playing fast and playing under control. The North Central women will host the Graceland University junior varsity tonight (Friday) tipping off at 4 o’clock. The Pirates play host to the Livin’ The Dream exhibition team on Saturday. Action at the Ketcham Community Center is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.

OP/ED 2. How many of those veterans are women? .6 million 1.6 million 2.6 million 3.6 million

Five Points by Wendell Lenhart

Honoring Our Veterans Veterans Day is next Monday and it continues the tradition of pausing to honor those who have served our country in the Armed Forces. First known as Armistice Day, President Woodrow Wilson set aside the day of Nov. 11 to recognize and thank American soldiers for their service. Nov. 11 was the anniversary of the signing of the armistice ending World War I in 1918. This day was declared a national holiday in 1938 and in 1954 the named was changed to Veterans Day Wendell Lenhart to honor all American veterans. It was moved to the fourth Monday in October in 1968 by Congress but reversed in 1978 when it became obvious the American people wanted it celebrated on Nov. 11. When I was growing up, this holiday was widely celebrated and there were many activities honoring veterans. The celebration waned during the Vietnam War era of the late 60s and early 70s but is now coming back in favor, with many school programs and other activities honoring our area veterans and that is good to see. See how much you know about Veterans Day by taking the following quiz. Don’t look at the answers until you are done! The answers are approximate.

3. Who wrote the words that became the motto of the Department of Veterans Affairs: “to care for him who shall have borne the battle?” Walt Whitman Stephen Crane Abraham Lincoln Ulysses S. Grant 4. The largest group of veterans in the United States comes from which war? World War II Korean War Vietnam War Gulf War Era 5. Who said: “In war, there can be no substitute for victory”? Gen. Dwight Eisenhower Gen. Douglas MacArthur Gen. George Patton

Gen. William Sherman 6. In which war did more U.S. soldiers die? Civil War World War I World War II Vietnam War Answers: 1. 20 million 2. 1.6 million 3. Abraham Lincoln 4. Vietnam War 5. Gen. Douglas MacArthur 6. Civil War, by a lot. It was long thought that about 618,000 men were killed but research shows the figure to be closer to 750,000. World War I had 116,500 military deaths, World War II had 416,800 deaths and 58,200 were killed in Vietnam. There have been almost 7,000 in the Gulf War era. “To our men and women in uniform, past, present, and future, God bless you and thank you. A true hero isn't measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.” - Author unknown.

Cathy Rice Shelburne Baptist Church held revival services on Friday and Saturday evenings as well as on Sunday morning. Steadfast Grace from Princeton provided the praise music and Pastor Alan Brock gave three messages, using scripture from Colossians 1:3-8 on Friday night. Following the morning service on Sunday, a potluck meal was held and Pastor Appreciation Day was celebrated for Pastors Aaron Stark and

Alan Brock and their families. Soybeans and corn are being shelled and tucked into bins. Leaves have changed colors and most have fallen from the trees. I'm not positive, but I think we've done had us a cold snap. Are we done yet with this fall/winterish weather? I'm quite confident that I've had enough. It could be I'm getting old and cranky or perhaps I'm just not looking forward to cold and blowing snow.

Thank You

I would like to thank my family and friends for a wonderful day, for the calls, visits, cards and gifts. You all made my 80th birthday very special. God Bless - Kay Young

VISITING AUTHOR SHARES TIPS ON BUILDING TRUST AT MU EVENT â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trust your source, but fact check.â&#x20AC;? That adage learned long ago in basic journalism came back to me this week. MU Extension annual conference held a new segment this year. The meeting merged with MU Engagement Week. We were invited to hear keynote address by Stephen Covey brought here by the Novak Leadership Institute at J School. Covey spoke to a packed auditorium at Jesse Hall. His topic: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leading with Trust.â&#x20AC;? He says trust is your No. 1 value. I learned that value interviewing subject over many years. Covey came on like gangbusters with drama and entertainment. He moved from behind podium to lecture. He performed, pacing back and forth on that stage. An attention getter, he gave 13 useful points to support trust-building. But as a longtime MU Extension educator, I learned limits of our adult minds to recall lectures. My favorite writer Dan Kahneman, author of

"Thinking Fast and Slow," confirms it. If you lecture for an hour, you may leave three ideas in minds of your listeners. This week, I jotted down what I took away: Tell the truth. Listen to your audience. Work at building relationships. But dang it, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember 10 missing points. Before writing I checked my reporter notebook. Then to fact check myself, I found on the Internet Coveyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list. I was kinda close. Covey started with 1.â&#x20AC;?Talk Straight.â&#x20AC;? (Tell truth.) His point No. 12 was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listen First.â&#x20AC;? Final 13th was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Extend Trust.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve twisted that to mean relationships. Other good points are Transparency, Right wrongs, Deliver results, Clarify expectations. On and on. The 13 points make much to recall or jot down. Covey used a dynamic teaching device, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used. Stop lecturing and give a verbal quiz. Have listeners form groups of three to work on an answer. His assignment: Think of the most trusted person you work with and then think of your least trusted. How does your working relationship differ between the two? Wow. I could do that. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t name names, just told the differences. My trusted source and I work well together. The

less-trusted source rarely produces. I remember that part vividly -- and little else. Walking out of Jesse Hall, a co-worker joined me. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He should have stuck with seven points.â&#x20AC;? I agreed. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where fact checking brought an awakening. She and I thought the Stephen Covey we just heard was author of the book "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.â&#x20AC;? Not so. That was by Stephen R. Covey, the dad of Stephen M.R. Covey, our speaker. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;7 Habitsâ&#x20AC;? book sold 25 million copies. It still sells. Dad made his fortune with his books and lectures. Son Stephen wrote â&#x20AC;&#x153;The SPEED of Trust.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making his living with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trustâ&#x20AC;? books and lectures. I learned about truth in visits with over 100 Missouri mule traders. I recall one claim, heard more than once: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never told a lie about my mules.â&#x20AC;? After a pause: â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, I may not have told the whole truth.â&#x20AC;? From mule lore, journalism training drew reinforcement. Trust your source to tell the truth, but fact check. If I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fact checked before writing this column, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have misled you on who I heard speaking at MU Engagement. When you hear fluent speakers, it pays to fact check. That makes journalism exciting. You may not believe this, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed increasingly that some politicians donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell the whole truth. Be thankful that journalists fact check fake talk and tweets. Share your stories about old-time muleskinners. I learned about story telling from them. Send to

October Weather Less Than Ideal October weather in Missouri gave sharp contrasts. September weather that felt like August went away. October 2019 was the coldest October in 10 years and the fifth month this year that was colder than normal. Unexpected snow over much of the state ended the month. October went from dry to wet, becoming the wettest October since 2014. It was the eighth wetter-than-average month in 2019. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strong contrasts became the theme for Missouri weather in 2019,â&#x20AC;? says Pat Guinan, MU Extension climatologist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The state lies between colder-than-average states in north-central U.S. and warmer than average in southeast U.S.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more. The first fall freeze came early for the western Ozarks and central Missouri. The Oct. 12 freeze was near or a few days earlier than normal in northern Missouri and the eastern Ozarks. The southeast escaped, but all locations froze by monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end. Farmers hoped for late frost to allow crop harvest. In cool, wet weather, crops planted late matured and dried slow. By the last week of October, corn harvest was at 64 percent. Soybeans were 43 percent harvested. That was 20 percent behind for corn and 15 percent late for soybeans. Bright spots were for pasture and hay. Wet weather ended droughts that cut forage yields in recent years. Hay supplies were 71 percent adequate. All numbers came from the Missouri Agricultural Statistics Service. Many soil moisture reports rated â&#x20AC;&#x153;very wetâ&#x20AC;? at the end of October. That extended across northern and central U.S. On Oct. 1, the U.S. Drought Monitor showed dry weather in southeast border counties. That was the first drought of the year. By monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, the state was â&#x20AC;&#x153;drought free.â&#x20AC;? Guinan says preliminary data shows state average rain at 5.3 inches for October. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2.09 inches above long-term rain. In all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the wettest January-to-October since 2008. Some areas had heavy rain, especially in the southeast twothirds of the state. Up to 7-inch averages fell there. Some southwest border counties had more than a foot of rain. That included Barry, Stone and Taney counties. One volunteer in Taney County reported 15.54 inches for the month. Some farmers farther away reported their rain gauges were too small to record rains. They overflowed. Snow in October is unusual, but it does occur, Guinan says. Up to 11.5 inches of snow fell on Oct. 22-23, 1996, in northwest and west-central counties. Trees still in leaf broke and power lines fell. As state climatologist, Guinan helps oversee a network of 37 automated weather stations across the state.

Higher-Protein Milk Replacement Helps With Early Weaning, Improves Health Dairy calves that are fed higher-protein milk replacement produced more milk and had earlier weaning dates, improved health and better fertility rates, according to a new paper by University of Missouri Extension specialists. Before weaning calves, producers feed them a milk replacement, a concentrated powdered milk diluted with water. In a two-year study on a pasture-based dairy, calves fed higher-protein milk replacers showed fewer health problems, says dairy veterinarian Scott Poock. As calves matured, they had higher conception

rates at first breeding, and they bred at a younger age. They also gave 1,000 pounds more milk at first lactation. All of this translates into more money for the producer, says extension dairy specialist Stacey Hamilton. In the study, researchers fed 28.5:15 protein-fat accelerated milk replacer to one group of heifer calves and traditional replacer to others. They used a mob feeding system of multiple calves per feeder at MUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Southwest Research Center near Mount Vernon. Poock says conventional milk replacer feeding pro-

grams limit dry matter intake of milk to 1-1.5% of body weight at birth. Higher-protein milk replacer allows dry matter intake of 2-3%. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The higher level of milk feeding is counterintuitive to the goal of increased grain feeding and subsequent rumen development,â&#x20AC;? says Poock. However, the study shows that calves eat more grain after weaning when the milk ration is reduced one to two weeks before weaning. A 2005 University of Minnesota analysis of feeding of high-protein milk replacers to dairy calves reported an 18% â&#x20AC;˘WANTEDâ&#x20AC;˘ FARM GROUND to Lease! Competitve Rates

decrease in calf mortality. A Cornell University study found that calves inoculated with cryptosporidium and fed accelerated milk replacer had fewer days of diarrhea, less dehydration and improved feed efficiency than traditionally fed calves. Hamilton recommends the accelerated milk replacer to push calves to weaning sooner and improve overall herd health. He says it is important to mix the replacer thoroughly with the right ratio of powder to water. Clumps of undissolved powder can cause gut issues in the calves. Poock, Hamilton and MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources interim associate dean Rob Kallenbach are authors of the paper.

ACROSS MISSOURI HIGHLIGHTS WITH HEGEMAN 12th District State Sen. Dan Hegeman Room 332, State Capitol Jefferson City, MO 65101 Phone: 573-751-1415

REMEMBERING THOSE WHO SERVE OUR COUNTRY On Nov. 11, Americans living at home and abroad will celebrate Veterans Day, a day our nation sets aside each year to recognize and thank all those who have answered the patriotic call to serve in the United States Armed Forces. It was on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 when the armistice ending the aggressions of World War I took effect. Just 101 years later, we pause to reflect and remember all of those who went into harm’s way, be it during the War to End All Wars or any of the conflicts that have happened since. According to the Missouri Veterans Commission, more than 400,000 veterans currently live in the Show-Me State. Thousands of those veterans are living right here in the 12th Senatorial District, some of them

at Cameron Veterans Home. This Veterans Day, and every day, I encourage you to show your support for Missouri’s veterans and military families by donating to a veterans organization, volunteering at a veterans home or hospital or simply taking the time to stop and thank a veteran for their service and sacrifice. Also, many restaurants and retailers offer discounts and free items for veterans on Nov. 11. Most places require a military ID or proof of service, and offers vary by location. As always, please feel free to call, email or write with your ideas or concerns. My capitol office number is 573-751-1415, my email address is and my mailing address is Room 332, State Capitol Building, Jefferson City, MO 65101.

Democrats Say St. Louis County Victory Signals Hope For 2020 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Democrats in Missouri are hoping that a red-to-blue flip of a once safely Republican suburban St. Louis state House seat is a sign of things to come in 2020. Democrat Trish Gunby defeated Republican Lee Ann Pitman Tuesday in a special election in House District 99, a western St. Louis suburb that Donald Trump carried by 5 percentage points in 2016 on the way to winning the presidency. Gunby won with 56% of the vote to Pitman's 44%. Gunby's win was among several that raised concerns for Republicans in suburbs across the country. Suburban voters in Kentucky helped a Democrat, Andy Beshear, to a lead of a few thousand votes in the gubernatorial race — still too close to call but a potentially significant upset of incumbent Republican Gov. Matt Bevin, a staunch Trump supporter. In Virginia, Democrats took control of both houses of the Legislature for the first time in a generation, thanks in large part to suburban voters. In Missouri, both parties invested heavily in the special election, which became necessary when former Republican Rep.

Jean Evans resigned in January to become executive director of the Missouri Republican Party. Gunby, 59, believes her win was partly a referendum on Trump but noted that the district, once overwhelmingly white, now is home to a mosque, with a Hindu temple nearby. Many residents, she said, are abortion rights supporters and favor stricter gun laws. "Those groups want a voice," Gunby said. "They felt like a Democratic candidate will provide them that voice." Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee President Jessica Post, a St. Louis County native, agreed. She called the Missouri Republican Party's agenda "completely out of touch with the voters in the suburbs." Both Gunby and Evans believe the district has been leaning toward Democrats despite Trump's strong showing in 2016. Democratic U.S. Senate candidates won the district in both 2016 and 2018. Evans said it was the GOP, not the Democrats, who needed to pull an upset. "We knew we'd have our work cut out for us and it would be an uphill battle."

Missouri overall remains a conservative state thanks to overwhelming GOP support outside of the St. Louis and Kansas City areas. Republicans control all but one statewide office — Auditor Nicole Galloway is the lone Democrat — and with Josh Hawley's defeat of incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill in 2018, both U.S. senators are now Republicans, as are six of the eight members of the U.S. House. Still, University of Missouri-St. Louis political scientist David Robertson sees cause for alarm for Republicans. He said Gunby's win is further evidence that Democrats are gaining a foothold farther out from the urban core. "This shows that the trend toward the Democrats really has gone into newer suburbs," Robertson said. Trump won Missouri by nearly 20 percentage points in 2016 and is a heavy favorite to carry the state again. But Democrats believe U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner, a Republican from western St. Louis County, is vulnerable. The four-term congresswoman defeated novice Democratic politician Cort VanOstran by just 4 percentage points in 2018.

Kansas City Street Change Opens Wounds, Discussion KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City leaders and residents on Wednesday began what is likely to be a challenging conversation about how to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and recover from wounds inflicted during a nearly yearlong debate over naming a street for the civil rights icon in the majority white city. On Tuesday, Kansas City voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure to rename a 10-mile boulevard from King's name back to The Paseo, which it has been called since it was completed in 1899. The vote came less than a year after the city council approved renaming the boulevard for King, after years of advocacy from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and mostly black civic leaders. Representatives from both sides of the issue vowed Wednesday to find another way to honor King and perhaps show other cities how to peacefully unify around the issue. Diane Euston, a spokeswoman for the "Save the Paseo" group that led the successful petition drive, said the group has been brainstorming for months about ways to honor King if the ballot measure passed, and in a meeting last week with Mayor Quinton Lucas, who strongly supported the King name, members made it clear they intend to be part of that conversation. "I believe we are going to take positive strides," she said.

"We can in the long run be an example across the nation about what unity is going to look like, what consensus looks like. The people have spoken, and people need to continue to speak in a positive manner in order to show Kansas City is an example of the democratic process while continuing to ensure we honor Martin Luther King." Save the Paseo members, many of whom are black, said throughout the campaign that the effort to replace King's name was not about race. They contended the council didn't follow proper city process when it voted in January to rename the boulevard for King and didn't properly engage residents affected by the change. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference and other mostly black leaders accused Paseo supporters of being motivated by racism. Kansas City is 60.3% white and 28.7% black, according to the U.S. Census. Whether the SCLC will join in the new discussions remains unclear. Its representatives didn't return messages Wednesday seeking reaction to the vote. Lucas, who is black and was on the city council when the name was changed, acknowledged that city leaders and the SCLC could have handled the renaming decision better and will learn from Tuesday's vote. He expects the community outreach and conversation to take some time but said that effort is important. "I think in terms of the next

Missouri Process To Certify Minors As Adults Challenged JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri's process for certifying juveniles as adults is unconstitutional and discriminates against African Americans, a public defender for a black 16-yearold boy told Missouri Supreme Court judges on Wednesday. Public defender Tim Honse said the minor, identified only as D.E.G. in court documents, was 15 at the time of the alleged offense and 16 when he was certified as an adult. A Jackson County grand jury later indicted him for first-degree assault and armed criminal action. His trial is slated for March. In court filings, Honse argued that race plays a role in the certification of children as adults and that black minors in Missouri are disproportionately more likely to be tried by the adult justice system. "Here, D.E.G. is black, African American, and his mere interaction with the system leads him to be disparately treated," Honse wrote in court filings. Honse pointed to 2017 Missouri court data that show black minors were almost six times more likely to be certified as adults compared to white juveniles. He also cited a 2015 Department of Justice report that found black youths in St. Louis County were treated more harshly than whites. He said those findings could be applied statewide. Honse asked judges to toss out a 1972 Missouri Supreme Court ruling that outlined the appeal process for certification as an adult. Under the current process, minors charged with a crime can dispute their certification, but only after their adult court proceedings end. Honse wants juveniles to be able to appeal sooner. He said D.E.G. might turn 18 before he's able to appeal his certification as an adult under the current system.

steps, most everybody I talked to remains committed to honoring Dr. King and his service to the country," Lucas said. "We have a positive opportunity coming out of this. Every now and then we might need a painful start, but people want to make sure we get it right, that we get the collaboration right." Alissia Canady, a former city councilwoman who was one of the few black leaders in the city to object to renaming The Paseo, said she also sees the controversy as an opportunity to honor King but also address other issues such as crime and economic inequity. "We need to have a citywide conversation and be intentional about manifesting

King's dreams, rather than just building another statue or duplicating what others have done," she said. "It's a huge opportunity for us to be innovative." The next steps are crucial for Kansas City, both to heal from the campaign and to protect its national reputation, said Derek Alderman, a geography professor at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has studied the naming of streets for King for decades. Kansas City is one of the largest cities in the U.S. without a street named for King, in a country where, as of 2017, 955 U.S. cities had streets named for him. "It's a good sign that people are wanting to come forward

and work with the city, but they need to understand it's going to require sacrifice," Alderman said. "It's not as easy as 'let's find a convenient street to name for Dr. King.' They'll have to change the identity of a street they've known for a long time, with business and property owners to bear some costs, along with hard discussions of racism and exclusion. I'm not saying it should be divisive, but it needs to be accompanied with really genuine, hard conversations." U.S Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, a former Kansas City mayor who unsuccessfully tried early on to negotiate a compromise on the naming issue, said he's concerned how Kansas City's image will suffer when pic-

tures of city workers taking the King signs down are transmitted nationwide. That will occur at some point after the election board certifies Tuesday's results. Cleaver said he chooses to believe most of the people who supported The Paseo name were not motivated by racial bias, but that message will be hard to communicate to others. When he called U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi Wednesday, the first thing Thompson said to Cleaver was "What in the world are you guys up in Kansas City doing?" Both men are black. "When you have to try and explain it, it's already a problem," Cleaver said.

Dear Annie: I am compelled to write in response to "Are You Listening," regarding her frustration that her husband doesn't seem to want to talk with her. My husband suffered from hearing loss, which became progressively worse as the years rolled by. Eventually, his hearing deteriorated to the category of "profound hearing loss." As for echoing something that was said, in a person with impaired hearing there is a lag time between what the ear hears and when the brain processes the sound. Thus the afflicted person is reaffirming what had been said. And I'm willing to bet that when her husband seems to ignore her speaking in the car, this is because he truly can't hear her. One helpful thing I learned was that if I changed the pitch and tone of my voice and spoke slowly and clearly my husband could understand more of what I said. Even with his more powerful aids, when I wanted to speak to him, I had to touch his arm to alert him

I strongly advise "Are You Listening" and her husband have a thorough hearing evaluation performed by a doctor of audiology who will help her understand the challenges of living with this disability. I think they will be surprised at the extent of hubby's hearing loss. A well-trained HIS (hearing instrument specialist) or HAS (hearing aid specialist) would be the second part of the equation. The third part is that both husband and wife need to be patient with each other. -Been There, Done That Dear Been There: Experience is the best teacher. Thanks for sharing your wisdom with us. Dear Annie: The question put forth in your column about parents having to support their adult children brought to mind something someone told me before our daughter (now 50 years old) was born. It was simply this: One of the worst things parents can do is raise their children believing money grows on trees. I've seen it so many times;

parents who didn't have much growing up will struggle and sacrifice to spoil their children. But then the outcome usually isn't good. It bothered me when our daughter was growing up that we couldn't afford to give her some of the expensive things her friends got from their parents, but she seemed to understand. And we could not be more proud of the woman she is today. She is a hard worker, is totally independent, never asks for anything and manages her time and resources beautifully. At birthdays and Christmas, she'll always tell us not to spend money on her or her husband. -- Ann D. in Shreveport, Louisiana Dear Ann: You and your husband should be proud indeed. Congratulations on raising such a selfless, independent young woman. Thanks for reading and for writing.

The Hong Kong economy, usually one of the world’s most dynamic, is shrinking under pressure from a U.S.-Chinese trade war and anti-government protests that are scaring away tourists. The Chinese territory of 7.5 million people fell into its first recession in a decade after the economy shrank by 3.2% in the three months ending in September. Activity contracted 0.5% percent in the previous quarter. Chief Executive Carrie Lam says the economy is on track to shrink this year. Exports fell 8% from a year earlier in the latest quarter as the trade war depressed shipments

Tourist arrivals fell 40% in August. That was the biggest decline since 2003’s SARS outbreak. The government announced tax cuts and higher social spending in mid-August. “Given how poor sentiment is, we do not expect the stimulus to have a meaningful impact until the political unrest comes to a halt,” Tommy Wu of Oxford Economics said in a report.

Four Charged In Burglaries Four area residents are being charged with three felonies each in connection with burglaries in Trenton on Nov. 4, with additional charges expected to be filed. According to Trenton Police Chief Rex Ross, the four persons include Jonathan L. Davis, 36, Trenton; Connie L. McCollum, 24, Laclede; Christy L. Russell, 43, Trenton; and Brandon T. May, 29, Coffey. All four are facing class D felonies of second degree burglary, stealing a motor vehicle and stealing with a value of $750 or more. They are accused of acting in concert with one another to knowingly enter and remain unlawfully in an inhabitable structure at 516 W. 13th St., for the purpose of stealing. In addition, they are accused of acting together to steal an Arctic Cat fourwheeler and a trailer with a value of at least $750. Chief Ross said the investigation began when Trenton police officers contacted two of the suspects in the early morning hours of Monday, Nov. 4 due to their suspicious activities. The two were detained for suspicion of theft and burglary and based on interviews and the gathering of evidence, the other two suspects were taken into custody and a search warrant was served at a residence in the north part of Trenton. The search warrant led to the recovery of numerous pieces of stolen property that helped solve several crimes, both in Trenton and rural Grundy County. Chief Ross said additional charges are pending after the review of information gathered during the investigation. All four defendants are being held in the Grundy County Detention Center on bonds of $35,000 cash or 10 percent. All four are scheduled to appear in court Nov. 12.

Grant Will Help With Project The North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission in Sullivan County has received a Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development Transportation Discretionary Grant of $13.5 million for the East Locust Creek Reservoir Project.
