Trenton Republican-Times “News Every Day...When YOU Want It”


The Trenton Park Board discussed the placement of security cameras in the park system during a meeting held on Wednesday afternoon at city hall. Board member Gary Schuett presented information on the Blink camera system, a wireless infrared system that could be used to provide surveillance at strategic points in the park system, including the Trenton Family Aquatic Center and the park maintenance shop. Each camera and module is $119, Schuett said, so the system would be affordable. Schuett said the system allows the images to be seen on a cell phone or computer and operates on a lithium battery that can be replaced. The pros and cons of a wireless system were discussed and it was decided that the board would also look into a hardwired system and continue the discussion. In his report, Park Superintendent Jason Shuler said two redbud memorial trees have been planted by Trenton High School and three thornless locust trees have been planted at Gladys Grimes Park. Shuler updated the board on various projects, including the replacement of a fence at Eastside Park and work on the restroom renovation at Burleigh Grimes Field. He told board members the new play structure for Moberly Park was expected to be delivered Thursday and installation is planned for this fall. It was noted that the board is trying to do the most work it can for the least amount of money and watching every dollar closely. The next regular board meeting is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Class 2 All-State Team

Four Bulldogs Named All-State A run to the state championship game by the Trenton High School softball team has been rewarded in the form of four selections to the Class 2 all-state team. Pitcher Ainsley Tolson and catcher Salem Croy were both selected to the first team while shortstop Maci Moore and left fielder Taylor Richman were named to the second team. “All four girls played big roles in our success as a team this season,” Trenton Head Coach John Cowling said. “I’m happy the overall depth of our starting lineup has been recognized with postseason awards. To have four girls earn all-state shows how truly talented this team was.” For Croy, this marks the third year in a row the Trenton catcher has received first-team all-state honors. Croy hit .388 this season with six home runs and 41 RBIs while playing stellar defense behind the plate. Tolson, meanwhile, was named to the first team for the second year in a row after being a second team selection as a sophomore. She hit .440 with 24 RBIs and 33 runs scored. In


the circle, Tolson finished 23-2 with 175 strikeouts and a 0.37 ERA. Moore received second-team honors after being a first-team selection last year. She belted a school record 10 home runs this season while driving in 51 runs, also a school record. She batted .427 on the season. Richman earned all-state honors for the first time with her secondteam selection. She hit .416 with 16 doubles, 25 RBIs and 27 runs scored. The four players and their teammates led Trenton to a school record 27 wins and a state runner-up finish. Trenton scored a school record 268 runs on the season and the Bulldogs shut out opponents 17 times, also a school record. The full Class 2 all-state team is as follows: CLASS 2 ALL-STATE 1st TEAM Pitcher Sarah Harness, Sr. Bowling Green Ainsley Tolson, Sr. Trenton Makenna Kliethermes, Sr. Blair Oaks Brooke Huitt, Sr. Lathrop Catcher Gabi Deters, Sr. Bowling Green

Pirates Sweep Ellsworth At Home One team needed all it could muster to fend off multiple rally attempts. The other needed a frantic comeback and a big shot in the final seconds. Though the North Central Missouri College women’s and men’s basketball teams took different routes on Tuesday night, the end result was the same on both ends of a doubleheader with Ellsworth Community College at the Ketcham Community Center a Pirate win. The North Central women held on for a 77-67 win over visiting Ellsworth, while Yacento Scott’s game-winning shot capped a come-from-behind 67-65 victory in the men’s game. NORTH CENTRAL  WOMEN After one quarter Tuesday night the North Central women found themselves trailing by three points. That would change in the second quarter as eight points by Hailey Burrows spurred a 25-16 run by the Pirates to put the home team ahead 37-31 at halftime. In the third quarter, North Central’s offense dipped again, but eight points from Da’Briauna Bables kept North Central in front after both teams failed to score in the opening three minutes of the second half. The Pirates lead ventured between eight and three points, but Ellsworth never held an advantage as NCMC pulled away late to win by double digits. “Fast break points, I think (were key),” North Central Head Coach Jenni Croy said. “We had to score on the break, our outside shots were killing us, especially in the first half. I knew if we could get (Ellsworth) in transition then we would be okay. That’s when this group of girls works the best, when we are coming down the floor fast and we can look to score quick.” It was a very balanced scoring night for the Pirates, who were paced by 16 points from Dymeria Guillory. Burrows followed with 15 points and Karissa Baber and Bables finished with 13 points each. Megan Ernzen added eight and Maddison Book had seven for the Pirates. “I think that is what you are

Sports Briefs... TMS Wrestlers Hit The Mat The Trenton Middle School wrestling team opened the 2018 season on Tuesday night, traveling to Marceline for a triangular that also included Gallatin. The Bulldogs were a combined 10-6 overall on the night. Leading the way for the Bulldogs was Charlie Riley, who was undefeated, going 3-0 on the night. Sam Gibson was also undefeated, going 1-0, and Coleman Griffin finished the event with a 2-1 record. Gavin Chambers, Brayden Clause, Tim Kempton and Hunter McAtee were all 1-1 for Trenton. Brayden Hughs was also in action for Trenton, finishing the night 0-1. Trenton’s wrestlers return to the mat on Thursday, traveling to Gallatin for action.

going to see this year,” Croy said. “It will be balanced and it will be somebody different each night. I don’t have, you know, that one who is just a dead-eye shooter yet. We have probably five-to-six who can score so we are going to have that balanced attack all year.” The win was the first of the season for the Pirates, who improved to 1-2 overall. NORTH CENTRAL MEN After chasing Ellsworth for the majority of the game, the North Central men had their chance with the game tied in the final seconds. It was Scott who took charge, driving to the hoop off a screen and putting up a floater that splashed through the net with 1.3 seconds remaining on the clock. The shot sent Ellsworth packing with a two-point loss. “It wasn’t exactly what we wanted execution-wise, but it was good enough,” Pirates Head Coach Jeremy Esry said. “We felt Yacento was doing a pretty good job through most of the game and kudos to Emil Spriggs, he said ‘let’s get Yacento the ball and he will make a play with it’.” Had it not been for North Central’s gritty defensive play in the second half, however, Scott may have never even had the chance to play the hero role on this night. NCMC trailed

41-38 at halftime, but the Pirates’ defense came to life in the second half. Ellsworth suddenly found points hard to come by and, at game’s end, the Panthers had netted just 24 points in the second half. “I was proud of our defense in the second half and just how we got stops when we had to have stops,” Esry said. “It wasn’t the prettiest game or the prettiest second half, but we kind of buckled down. I think that is a testament to our guys’ mindset. If the ball isn’t falling through the hoops for us but we can get stops, then we will win that way. Our guards did a good job of putting pressure on (Ellsworth) and we did an alright job rebounding and lim-

iting them to one shot.” Jordan Reece led the Pirates in the win with 17 points, while Scott and Soloman Thomas scored 10 points each. The Pirates also got nine points and three blocked shots from Cameron Lockett. The win moved the North Central men to 2-1 overall on the season. Both NCMC teams are in action this weekend at the Kansas City Kansas Community College Classic. The women will take on Hesston  College on Friday at 2 p.m. and KCKCC on Saturday at 4 p.m. The men, meanwhile, see Labette Community College at 4 p.m. on Friday and host KCKCC at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

The Trenton Middle School basketball teams kicked off the 2018 season on Monday night, traveling to Milan for a four-game set with the Wildcats. Trenton split the girls games, falling 22-4 in the B game and winning the A game 29-22. Trenton was swept in the boys games, falling 4416 in the B game and 39-10 in the A game. For the girls, Emma Roberts paced the A team with eight points while Madi Moore and Eliana Cowling scored six points each. Savannah Triplet scored four points, Summer Martin had three and Jena Harris added two. For the B team, Sarah Washburn and Makina Limkemann scored two points each. Boys action saw Dylan Spencer lead the A team with six points while Maverick Sole added four. In the B game, Gavin Kelsall had 10 points, Austin Brown had four points and Connor Campbell had two. The TMS teams will be at home on Friday, hosting Princeton in a four-game set beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Grundy At Mercer Tourney The Grundy R-5 Junior High School basketball teams have been in action at the Mercer Tournament this week. The Grundy boys picked up two wins, defeating Pleasant View R-6 39-13 and North Harrison 40-22. The Grundy girls, meanwhile, defeated East Harrison 23-15 before falling to Mercer 28-6. The Grundy boys were paced by Corbin Axtell, who had 12 points against Pleasant View. Zach Cross added eight points and Aidan Rains finished with seven for the Panthers while Kiefer Tolson led Pleasant View with seven points. Against North Harrison, Axtell scored 15 points while Rains finished with eight and Cole Peterson and Logan Foster each had six. The Grundy girls got 10 points from Daya Allnutt in the win over East Harrison. Landry Oaks added six points in that game while Skylar Bonnett had 11 rebounds and five steals while scoring three points.

Tri-County Tops Laredo The Tri-County Junior High School basketball teams handed the Laredo seventh and eighth grade teams losses on Monday night. The Laredo girls lost 34-16 while the boys were handed a 45-15 loss.

The Final Word by Diane Lowrey R-T Editor

Election Memories

What a great turnout of voters in Grundy County for Tuesday’s General Election despite the fact there were no local races to decide. The 61 percent who made their way to the polls was the largest number since the 1992 General Election, when 74 percent of Grundy County voters cast ballots for races that included the tax for the county’s developmentally disabled, a proposal requiring landowners to cut brush along county roads that border their property and races for sheriff (won by Diane Lowrey Greg Coon over Steve McCollum), public administrator (won by Joe Trump over Rosa Lee Allnutt), first district county commissioner (won by Paul Jackson over Neal Snyder) and third district state representative (won by Phil Tate over John Testrake). Oh yeah - Bill Clinton defeated George Bush and Ross Perot to become President of the United States and Mel Carnahan became Missouri’s governor by defeating Bill Webster. I remember the 1992 election in particular because it was the last one in which Grundy County handcounted its ballots. Because of the large voter turnout, ballots were still being counted at 8 a.m. the next day and it was that reason that one of the first decisions made by the county commission when it reorganized in January was to purchase voting machines. That was also back in the day when the RepublicanTimes staff would come in on election night and post election results on a board in the office window. We would have people lined up outside to find out which candidate was winning, many of whom would be with us until all the votes were counted and posted. At this election, we stayed at the office until around 4 o’clock on Wednesday morning before finally going home for a few hours and returning to work at 8 a.m. so we could get out that day’s paper. Posting results is so much different today. With the newspaper website and Facebook page, we can update results right as they are happening and our readers can learn the winners the minute final tallies are made at the county clerk’s office. What used to take several of us to do can now be done by one of us. The times they are a changing....

Thank You to the Grundy Center Church and the Scrappy Quilters for the beautiful quilts.

The "doughnut hole" in Medicare Part D prescription-drug coverage requires Medicare recipients to pay most of their medication costs until they reach the catastrophic-coverage level. For example, for 2015, after a Medicare recipient pays a $320 deductible, her Part D plan provides coverage until her drug expenses reach $2,960 (including her share and the insurer's share). The recipient then finds herself in the doughnut hole and pays for most of her prescriptions out of pocket. However, she gets a 50% discount on brand-name drugs from the drug company, and her plan pays another 5%. She also receives a 35% federal subsidy for generic drugs. When her out-of-pocket expenses reach $4,700, her plan pays 95% of her covered drug costs. ASSURE MISSOURI & ASSOCIATES is a family owned and operated business.

Hometown Boy by Duane Dailey, Professor Emeritus University of Missouri

SHOW-ME SELECT HELPS FARMS BOOST BEEF QUALITY AND PRICE Missouri is cow country, not in the image seen in western films. Cowboy movies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show grass, but sand and sagebrush, Here hills are grass covered. Missouri forage supports cows. Western cow herds shrink as we regain No. 2 in U.S. cow numbers. Another trend grows as we gain quality beef. Dollars go to better quality calves when sold to feed yards out west. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of economics behind these trends. Quality drives wellbeing in the cattle business. Consumers have caught on that USDA Prime beef tastes better than lowgrade beef. Price spreads between USDA Choice and Select grades grow. Consumers pay more for juicy, tender, tasty beef. Quality competes with quantity in beef. Other meats also compete. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge competition from pork, which abounds and grows. Chicken once led in meat use. This season I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention it, but turkey demand slumps in comparison. Soon, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll eat my annual take on turkey for the year. A recent market report told that beef-rib demand jumps as holidays approach. How does a standing-rib roast of prime beef sound for a feast, holiday or not? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of beef-promotion dollars spent on spreading the word. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beef: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for dinner.â&#x20AC;? Maybe you saw an ad or a bumper sticker. Those are from the Cattlemenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association, which does lots more as well. Certified Angus Beef promotes quality beef in big ways. But more important, they pay quality premiums to farms or feed yards when carcasses sell at packing plants. CAB grid premiums are big. CAB led the way in teaching that premiums are paid above daily market prices. Premiums to calves grading CAB add income. Chefs at the high-price steak houses know the value of CAB steaks on the grill. Consumer dollars help cowcalf profits all the way back to Missouri pastures. I must brag on another point

of pride. Your land-grant University for Missouri helps big time on Show-Me beef quality. Research from MU Thompson Farm, Spickard, gets used on more and more Missouri farms. The Show-Me-Select Replacement Heifer Program comes from those breeding studies. SMS heifers give multiple gains to farmers. First getting attention is a jump in production from calving ease. A calf too big to be born canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrive without lots of help. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy, if SMS protocols are followed. In the more than two decades Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written about this program, lots of improvements were added. high death losses at calving time. That comes from management at breeding. Also, planned breeding brings better genetics. Herd owners learn genetics make major boosts in quality beef. Calving ease and quality are controlled by genes. Now, lots of attention is being given to genomics. That means buyers at the coming SMS heifer fall sales must study their catalogs. Those printouts contain rich data. DNA is the new quality trend in Missouri herds. Poultry producers improved genetics long ago, big time. Now beef producers learn genomic testing. We still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make enough prime beef. Nationally, only six percent of calves grade prime. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon for SMS producers to get two-thirds of their fed steers grading prime. Export sales pay more for prime, which helps balance our trade deficits. Producers upgrading cow herds learn protocols and genomics. Or, they buy proven replacements at six coming heifer sales. Sales are Nov. 16, Joplin and Kirksville; Nov. 24, Kingsville; Dec. 1, Fruitland; Dec. 7, Farmington; Dec. 8, Palmyra, Search the web by typing â&#x20AC;&#x153;MU AgEBB Show-Me-Selectâ&#x20AC;? for details. Read catalogs made before each sale. For farmers: Buy heifers to fill herd holes. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to grow your own.

SmithďŹ eld Joins Program To Help ButterďŹ&#x201A;ies Smithfield Foods, Inc. is participating in a new program with Environmental Defense Fund and Roeslein Alternative Energy to restore key prairie habitat for monarch butterflies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited about the potential of this unique partnership to support recovery of the beloved monarch butterfly and other pollinators that rely on healthy prairie habitat,â&#x20AC;? said David Wolfe, director of conservation strategies at EDF. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition to providing habitat for bees, butterflies, birds, and other wildlife, this program offers multiple other environmental and financial benefits. The economic savings come from the benefits prairies have for helping hold water and nitrogen in the soil, and reducing potential waste. There are also added revenue opportunities that come from appropriately timed harvesting of the prairie for biomass that can be used for biogas generation of clean, natural gas.â&#x20AC;? Smithfield contributed $300,000 to fund the planting of native grasses and monarch-friendly native milkweed and wildflower species on 1,000 acres of land on and surrounding its hog farm in Missouri. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recognize that prairie is both an environmental and economic force,â&#x20AC;? said Kraig Westerbeek, senior director of Smithfield Renewables for Smithfield Foods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While helping to protect the environment surrounding our farms, prairie is creating a new revenue opportunity as an alternative source of clean, renewable

NW Missouri Horticulture by Timâ&#x20AC;&#x2C6;Baker Northwest Region Horticulture Specialist FOOD SAFETY MODERINIZATION ACT WORKSHOP Produce Growers have been monitoring developments in food safety for many years. There have been a number of tragic episodes, where some type of produce became contaminated with a dangerous microorganism, which led to illness and even death in the people who consumed the product. Produce growers are especially concerned that they do not contribute to the problem by producing an unsafe product. In an effort to prevent these tragic incidents, Congress passed the Food Safety Modernization Act. FSMA is administered by the Food and Drug Administration. One of the requirements of FSMA is that growers selling over $25,000 of produce covered under the act must attend a food safety workshop. There are other exemptions to the rule if farmers are mostly selling directly to consumers. FSMA includes rules for produce growers intended to reduce

the risk of contamination from E. coli, listeria, salmonella and other disease-causing microbes. The rules set standards related to water quality, use of manure and compost, and worker health and hygiene. The extension services of most land-grant universities are involved with conducting these workshops. This includes the University of Missouri and Kansas State University. Dr. Londa Nwadike works for both MU and KSU, and is coordinating these workshops. For a full list, take a look at this web page: Check out the section titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;FSMA Produce Safety Rule Grower Training.â&#x20AC;? The eight-hour workshop covers how to identify risks, best practices to reduce risks, key parts of the FSMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s produce safety rule, and how to develop a farm food safety plan. Participants will be eligible to receive a Certificate of Course

Attendance from the Association of Food and Drug Officials that verifies they have attended the course, which is a requirement to comply with the FSMA produce safety rule. Certificates are issued to individuals who attend the course and do not stay with the farm or organization if those individuals leave. The workshops are sponsored by the University of Missouri, Kansas State University, Lincoln University and the Kansas and Missouri departments of agriculture. For growers in the Jamesport area, a workshop is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 29. If you would like to attend this workshop, please call the Daviess County Extension Center at 660663-3232 to get your name on the list. There is a $20 registration cost, which includes materials and lunch. Attendance is limited to the first 50 people who register. This workshop will also be available at the Great Plains Growers Conference in St. Joseph. It will be held on Thursday, Jan. 10. The registration cost to attend the FSMA workshop at the Great Plains Growers Conference will be $55. Growers from Kansas or Missouri can apply for a $35 refund, but must submit a W9 form with their Social Security number to be eligible for the refund. Growers must attend the entire eight hours to get credit for taking the course.

SMSâ&#x20AC;&#x2C6;Sales To Feature Replacement Heifers Replacement heifers to upgrade cow-calf herds will be offered in six Show-Me-Select sales this fall. Also, owners can restock cow herds culled in the drought. With strength in beef demand and rains growing pastures, herd owners can rebuild. Dry weatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact on forages had farmers concerned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Optimism of cow-calf herd owners should return,â&#x20AC;? says David Patterson, MU Extension beef specialist. Patterson has developed Show-Me-Select for more than two decades. The marketing sales are a small part of a year-round education program. The main parts are reproduction management and genetics. This year the sales reach beyond Missouri. All will be broadcast online at LiveAuctions.TV. Buyers anywhere can bid in every sale. Sales start Nov. 16 at Joplin and Kirksville. Consignors north and south in the state offer heifers guaranteed pregnant. Many of those will be timed-AI bred, giving a calving date and uniform calf crop. Over the years, new features continue to be added. This year, more heifers will be genomic tested. These are called Show-Me-Plus heifers. Every sale offers a detailed catalog made just ahead of sale time. Expected calving dates are given. Data adds dollar value to each animal. Information plus catalogs are at

energy.â&#x20AC;? Since the 1990s, Smithfield has explored ways to transform hog manure into renewable energy. Smithfield recently announced the nationwide expansion of these efforts through Smithfield Renewables, a platform that unifies, leads and accelerates the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon reduction and renewable energy efforts while helping meet its industry-leading goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25 percent by 2025. In Missouri, the food company has worked with RAE since 2014 to transform manure into renewable natural gas and is now looking to prairie grass as an alternative feedstock, particularly useful during the winter months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generating energy from manure, prairie, or other biomass is pretty simple,â&#x20AC;? said Rudi Roeslein, founder and president of RAE. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Manure is captured in the underfloor of the hog buildings where scrapers are used to move and flush waste to an anaerobic digester or a covered lagoon, where anaerobic digestion takes place and solids are broken down to release methane gas that is transported to a central processing facility to be converted into renewable natural gas. Harvested prairie is used to supplement hog manure as an alternative source of energy. Prior to harvest, native prairie and cover crops provide an essential ecological service as critical habitat for pollinators and wildlife. This is an exciting new vision for renewable energy production.â&#x20AC;?

WORKING TOGETHER TO SERVE MISSOURI Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long campaign season here in Missouri, with many good-spirited arguments from candidates of all backgrounds. Throughout the process, we got to hear each candidate for public office give his or her pitch to voters, making the case for why they should be the one to represent their constituentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interests either in Congress, in the Missouri General Assembly or in a local elected office. We also learned about several different proposed ballot initiatives and heard othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; arguments for why they should or shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become law. All in all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a busy last few months, with a lot of information to digest and evaluate. But now that the elections are coming to a close, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for us to come together and do our best to move Missouri forward. Whether or not we are happy with the results of election night, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that, whatever our differences, we remember that we are all first and foremost fellow American citizens. We should respect our neighbors,

May God Bless You All, Butch & Marie Untiedt

Thank You!

even if they think or vote differently than we do. At the end of the day, we all believe in democracy and the American Way â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what really counts. I think the upcoming holidays are a perfect time for us to temporarily put politics aside and enjoy each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company. Though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to be engaged with the civic process â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a vital part of our system of selfgovernment â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important for us to realize that politics isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t everything. Win or lose, our daily lives will go on, and there will always be another election for us to try again if our preferred candidates and issues werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t successful this time around. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to thank the voters for their participation, and I wish the best for all of our future leaders.

Dear Annie: For almost three years after college, I worked at a science camp in the nearby mountains yearround. I was working with a group of five other counselors, and we became incredibly close. Working together nineplus hours a day with likeminded people who are similar in age will do that. It was very fun doing what we all loved for so long, but in the past two months, most of us have decided to move on. Of the five of us -- The Fab Five! -- only one still works at the camp, "Joey." The other four of us are all at different, more classically "adult" jobs. Though we promised to stay in touch and be just as close, it's not been happening that way. With different schedules, commutes, relationship statuses, etc., it's much harder to be as present in one another's lives. The four of us who left have met up a few times, but Joey always has a reason she can't make it. Though she says she is sad and misses us, she doesn't offer up alternative dates or plans that would work for her. I don't want to take it personally, but it's hard not to 10 DAYS

think that she feels abandoned or is purposefully not coming or is mad. I'm not sure how to approach her about this. Annie, do you have any recommendations? -- Counselor in Need of Counsel Dear Counselor: Maybe Joey is intentionally choosing not to spend time with you all; maybe she really is just busy. Regardless, take her at her word, and trust that if she values the friendship as much as you do, she will eventually reach out. Sometimes particular friendships have an ebb and flow, and that's OK. And sometimes people grow up and apart, and that -- though hard - is OK, too. Dear Annie: I have two children in food service, so I'd like to add some clarification regarding how much to tip. Twenty percent is very much the normal rate. Your server has to tip the bartender, the food runners, the host or hostess and the people who bus the tables based on the server's gross sales. It doesn't matter if a customer tips very little or not at all. The server still has to give the percentage of his gross sales that management

Hispanic job gains A burst of jobs over the past 12 months has gone to people of Hispanic and Latino descent. One in six people in the United States are Hispanic. But over the past year, this group has accounted for fully 46 percent of the 2.7 million jobs that have been added in that time, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s 1.25 million jobs for Hispanics. This suggests that healthy economic growth — which is fueled in part by steady gains in the labor force — will depend on an increasingly diverse

workforce. Because the nation’s Hispanic population is disproportionately young, this group is likely to provide a steady source of labor for the economy. When Pew Research studied median age by race and ethnicity, it found that the median was 43 for non-Hispanic whites. By contrast, the median age for Hispanics was just 28 . The relative youth of Hispanics is also reflected in their breakdown in the U.S.-born population, with roughly 75 percent of them belonging to the millennial generation or younger.

If you stay for a long period of time and don't allow the restaurant to turn over the table for another customer, tip again. -- Momma in Tennessee Dear Momma: Not all restaurants use a tip sharing or "tipping out" system, but many, perhaps most, do. Thanks for calling attention to this and encouraging us all to stay generous. Dear Annie: Recently, you printed a letter from "Paulie," who took issue with people saying "I apologize" rather than "I'm sorry." You have previously recommended that people read "The 5 Love Languages," which is a great book. The author of that book has also written a book about the various "languages" of an apology, aptly titled "The 5 Languages of Apology." It's worth reading. -- Salem, Ore., Reader Dear Salem: Thank you so much for the reading recommendation. I did not realize that Gary Chapman (along with Jennifer Thomas) had written a book on the subject of apologizing, and I look forward to reading it myself.

Something To Think About VINCE NEAL DIRECTOR

CHANGING OR REVOKING A WILL Having written a will, there will probably be occasion to change or add to it as your life circumstances change. A will may be changed by adding a page or two, called a CODICIL, which must be prepared with the same formality, including witnesses, as the will itself, and should be attached to it. If the changes are important or extensive, however, it is probably best to simply rewrite the will. Codicils have a way of getting misplaced, particularly when their content is not to the liking of the person finding the will. A will may be revoked in several ways. Writing a new will re-

vokes an old will if it says it does. A later will, without a declaration of a revocation of an earlier will, revokes the earlier will to the extent it is inconsistent. In certain states, certain situations (marriage, divorce, birth) automatically alter or revoke a will. The best thing is to check with your attorney as your situation in life changes.
