M M M M CHAMPS Gallatin Bulldog golfers bring home 3rd straight golf title! by Dennis Cox, Sports Editor
You never know what’s ‘roaming’ around the square!
Mark Pettit was up on the Gallatin square last Friday to show this prize to a friend -- and to anyone else who happened to be there at the right place at the right time. When Mark ﬁrst saw this Longhorn steer, the animal was ﬁve years old and weighed about 1,500 pounds. Mark bought him at the Daviess County Livestock Market about a year ago. “He was black and white, a good looking steer,” says Mark. The steer yielded about 800 pounds of hamburger. The horns measure 4-1/2 feet across from point to point. Now Mark is going to mount this trophy over his ﬁreplace. Mark and his wife, Heidi, live in rural Gallatin. [Staﬀ photo/EW]

Open house at city’s new water plant tomorrow The public is invited to an open house at the new Gallatin Water Treatment Plant from 2-6 p.m. on Thursday, May 17 at the plant’s location on Rocky Road, just east of Dockery Park. Learn the process that en-
sures the safety and quality of your drinking water as you go through the water treatment laboratory. Find out about the water softening process, the tower, and the lagoon at the bottom of the hill. You will see much of the
ground level pipe-work. Large photos will depict those parts of the plant that, for safety reasons, can’t be seen on the tour. Cups will be given for momentos. USDA Rural Development partnered with the City of Galla-
tin and the Friends of Gallatin to provide funding for the water plant as well as a bucket truck. Their representatives, along with engineers from Snyder & Associates, representatives from Green Hills Regional Planning Commission (GHRPC), and field representatives for Congressman Sam Graves and U. S. Senator Claire McCaskill were at the water plant on May 10 for a presentation of recognition.
Gallatin R-5 varsity golfers conquered the Class 1 field for the third consecutive year on Tuesday, bringing home a third straight Class 1 championship and fourth state trophy in four years. It marked the sixth state golf title for the Bulldogs since 1999. Last season’s championship win was an epic, two-team battle. This year’s Class 1 title came just as hard for the Bulldogs after a solid opening day. “Today (Tuesday) was a grinder for us,” GHS Coach Chad Sullenger told a gathering of approximately 60 supporters who welcomed the team back to town on Tuesday evening. “I’m very proud of these guys for staying focused and taking care of business.” The Bulldogs shot 340 as a team on Monday in very warm, windy conditions that helped the Rivercut Golf Course in Springfield play hard and fast. A 356 total for Tuesday was only fourth best among the top four teams but Gallatin held on to defeat Westran by four strokes and Bloomfield by five strokes Jett Simmons set the pace for all golfers on Monday, carding a one-under par 71 that tied Brice (continued on page 16)

Gallatin firefighters respond to attic fire At approximately 5 p.m. on May 13, Gallatin Fire Protection District was dispatched to a house fire located at 302 N. Daviess, the Sanders residence. En-
gine 101 Ladder 109, Rescue 107, and Brush 104 responded. Gallatin Firefighters found a two-story wood framed dwelling with smoke coming out of the roof eaves. Everyone had exited the house without injuries. Fire quickly broke through the southwest roof area. Fire crews deployed two hose lines for extinguishment. Two water hydrants were utilized for water supply -- one across the street to the south and another on the north end of the block. Interior attack crews Photo courtesy Chris Coleman worked to extinguish fire in
the attic from the second floor. An elevated water stream was used from the ladder truck to extinguish the remaining attic and roof fire. The fire was under control at approximately 6:44 p.m. Mutual aid was requested from KAW Fire District, Lake Viking Fire, Jameson Fire District, and Pattonsburg Fire District. Gallatin Police 204, Daviess County Ambulance, and Sheriff ’s Deputy 841 also responded. The home suffered heavy fire damage to the attic and roof, and moderate fire and water damage to the rest of the home. Faulty electrical wiring overheating in the attic was the cause.

Who’s playing smart? by Freida Marie Crump
The real beef about meatballs Well, okay. Here’s the beef. I realize in this culture of fake news, spontaneous research via the internet, and the zany focus on all things unimportant through social media, nothing should surprise me. But there I sat, waving my coffee cup over my favorite daily newspaper when I happened to notice a special report originating from the New York Times, no less. The story was tagged, “LONDON: Swedish meatballs, the signature national dish, are really Turkish...” I also learned that a country — Sweden, in this case — can operate a national Twitter account. According to the news article, that’s how the Swedes decided to right an eternal wrong, come clean, and admit in a tweet that Swedish meatballs have no meat. Here’s what I learned: Swedish meatballs are actually based on a recipe King Charles XII brought home from Turkey in the early 18th century. And in the world of “get real,” this has actually become a big deal. Turks rejoiced. Playful banter on social media spiked. Some Turks urged the name to be changed to the Turkish name, “kofte.” The Turkish media called the Swedish tweet a “confession”
and suggested that Charles, who reigned from 1697 to 1718 and spent some years in exile in the Ottoman Empire early in the 18th century, took Turkish products back to Sweden — including coffee beans and stuffed cabbage.
O the Editor s S ike
by Darryl Wilkinson
According to the report, the private Turkish news agency Dogan went to the city of Inegol in northwestern Turkey for reaction (by this I learned Inegol is famous for its meatballs). A chef at a local meatball restaurant there kept it simple, merely saying “It is an honor that these tastes have become an example to different cuisines all over the world.” But if this correction on meatballs means so much to the Swedes, what does it mean for Ikea? The Swedish furniture giant has long made Swedish meatballs a staple of its cafeterias
in stores worldwide — 2 million meatballs are consumed there around the globe each day! Even in Turkey, families flock to Ikea on weekends to eat “Swedish” meatballs on the cheap: A portion of eight meatballs with sides of fries and vegetables costs about $1.60. Before digesting all this, let’s be clear: There are distinctions between meatballs. Turkish meatballs are made with a combination of ground beef, ground lamb, onions, eggs, bread crumbs and parsley. The current version of Swedish meatballs may contain pork and is usually served with gravy. The “controversy” actually made me realize how little I know about the little Nordic country called Sweden. I knew where it lies on the globe; I’ve watched movies about WWII Swedish commandos fighting the Nazis. I once liked listening to the music of Abba. And I still like meatballs. But I guess we must scratch the “Swedish” misnomer, in the name of transparent accuracy. Besides, the best meatballs are really just beef meatloaf rolled up into balls with a catsup sauce that my wife, Liz, cooks up and serves. So, forget all the silliness. When you’re eating “American” meatballs, life is good!
State budget now on the books by State Rep. J. Eggleston
This week, the legislature completed the only work we are constitutionally obligated to do. We passed the budget for Missouri’s next fiscal year, which runs from July 2018 to June 2019. This year’s budget divvied up $28.3 billion dollars of taxpayer money to the various departments and programs that our state government funds. About one-third of that is money the legislature can pick and choose where it goes. The other twothirds is obligated spending for specific programs, usually mandated by the federal government. This year, our budget includes a $99 million funding increase for K-12 education, and a $10 million increase for school transportation (busing), bringing the total spent in our schools to over $6 billion a year. This is a 2% increase over the prior year, and
does not count money acquired through local property taxes. Transportation also saw a big funding uptick of 11%, bringing MoDOT’s money to about $2.3 billion for the next fiscal year. This amount is primarily acquired through the fuel tax and license fees, but there is also some from general revenue in there as well. The largest spending item in the budget is the more than $9 billion spent on social services programs, largely Medicaid and welfare. This year’s budget saw targeted increases to help independent living centers and nursing homes care for our elderly population. The last item to mention is a 7% increase for Corrections. Missouri has 21 state prisons, with two of them – Crossroads Corrections Center and Western Missouri Correctional Center – in our region.
Missouri’s corrections staff are among the lowest paid of state employees, which has led to a shortage of prison personnel. The increase in funding includes a $350/year pay raise for corrections officers on July 1, and another $700/year raise on January 1 next year. Corrections staff who are not officers will not see the July 1 raise, but will get the January 1 raise. These raises should help with recruitment and retention of personnel. With the budget out of the way, the legislature now has one more week of Regular Session to complete work on all of the remaining, unpassed policy bills. Still on the docket to be finished are some tax reform, labor reform, and welfare reform issues. The House and Senate will work late hours to finish as much as possible before session ends on May 18.

Greetings from the Poosey. It was just about as tight a game as you’d want to witness. The two teams had been battling it out for almost two hours. The score was tied with almost a minute remaining. Then something mighty remarkable happened. Two players on the blue team joined hands and skipped down the field together. If you’ve not attended a peewee soccer league game then a valuable part of your life is missing. Bad behavior has become the norm in major league sports as hardly game takes place without some sort of unprofessional ugliness. Pitchers toss 90 mph fastballs at the heads of batters crowding the plate then both benches jump onto the field in a slugfest, hockey players are hired because of their ability to duke it out on the ice, the tantrums of professional tennis players have become legendary, dinky little NFL referees are left to break up fights between highlypaid behemoths on the football field, and even the “non-contact sport” of professional basketball often sees bench-clearing melees. It seems that the more an athlete is paid the more right he or she seems to have to stop the game with an outburst. Then there’s soccer for little kids. I’ll admit that what I know about the game of soccer could be easily stuffed under a gnat’s fingernail, but when our neighbor invited Herb and I to witness a Saturday morning game where her two youngest daughters were playing I could hardly resist. I knew that we were in for an unusual contest when I heard the coach giving his final instructions before the game started. Cute as the little gals were, I didn’t see a one of them paying any attention to what the poor guy was saying. Two girls were busy braiding the hair of a little darling while at least a half dozen were busy adjusting their shorts, and nearly all of the team was too busy looking at their parents in the stands to hear what Mr. Coach was telling them. I think that the problem is that the length of an average peewee soccer game is about three times the span of a little girl’s attention. Too much running up and down the field with little or no scoring taking places takes a toll on their ability to focus. The game hadn’t been going for five minutes when I looked down into the opposing team’s goal to see the darling little goalie carefully picking every dandelion in her territory. As the action of the game got closer and closer her coach began shouting to get the young gardener’s attention and soon the cries of her mother could be heard from the stands across the field. Still, the little goalie kept picking flowers, perhaps thinking that the appearance of one’s goal line was of more importance than the final score. Although it’s unusual to see flowers growing in an ice field I couldn’t help but wonder if a few daisies or petunias scattered about the Chicago Blackhawks goal net might take some of the ugly edge off professional hockey. By the time our game was half over the soccer match had turned instead into a sort of Fourth of July Parade. Each time our little Poosey Dragons would run by the home team stands a great majority of them would wave at their admiring parents who were watching the entire contest through the half-inch viewing slot of a cell phone. One little gal waved every time she passed Mom and Dad...for the entire game. Would the Chicago Cubs’ pitching staff be less likely to brush back offending batters if we’d place their mothers right behind home plate and simply ask them to wave at their sons between pitches? After all, who could throw a bean ball with his mother looking on? And, of course, the two little gals running down the field holding hands was hands-down the cutest sight of the day. The soccer ball was being kicked around somewhere out on the field. Parents were shouting. The coach was politely screaming his head off, but the two tiny darlings could have cared less. They were having fun skipping down the field without a worry in their heads. I sat there thinking to myself...the coach is unhappy and the parents were flustered. But the two little players in blue shirts and striped shorts were having the time of their lives. Who was playing it smart? Perhaps it’s too much to ask the Packers and Steelers to skip down the field together holding hands at the final buzzer, but maybe they’re not be paid to be happy. And if this works, we might try it on Congress. You ever ‘round Poosey, stop by. We may not answer the door but you’ll enjoy the trip.

Politics and games in defining the age of adulthood A little-covered issue this year to extend the age of persons under juvenile court jurisdiction related to a long history for which I suspect few lawmakers realize. It’s an issue that goes back decades when there was a proposal to establish a uniform legal age for Missouri adulthood. It was a sweeping idea. Under the laws of Missouri and other states, there were different ages for when one can sign a legal contract, register to vote, be charged as an adult for a criminal offense or purchase an alcoholic drink. It became a national debate during the Vietnam War when the question was raised that if a teenager could be drafted or recruited to put his or her life at risk, why couldn’t that soldier vote or purchase a can of beer. In Missouri, one response came from one of the most committed civil libertarians I’ve covered — Sen. A. Clifford Jones, R-St. Louis County. He sponsored a bill that would set the uniform legal definition of being an adult at 18 years of age. His proposal won easy legislative approval, but for one complication — what about booze?
The Senate approved Jones’ uniformlegal-age bill, but the House exempted alcohol, keeping the minimum age at 21. On the last night of that year’s legislative session, Jones accepted defeat and agreed to make the motion for final approval of the House version that exempted alcohol from the adult rights to be extended to those at least 18 years of age. But by Phill when the bill came to the Broo s Senate for the final vote, there was a problem. Jones appeared to have consumed too much alcohol during the late-night session and seemed unable to make what should have been a routine motion to pass the bill in the closing hours. Senate leaders instructed staff to bring cups of coffee to Jones, but he waived them off. Since that bill’s failure, there’s been no subsequent serious legislative effort to establish a uniform legal definition of adulthood. There’s an irony in Jones’ failure. He had a statehouse reputation for being a
heavy drinker whose legislative performances while appearing to be under the influence became classic stories. I’ve since wondered if Jones’ performance that night actually was a deliberate act to send an iconic and pointed message to his colleagues that problems with booze were not limited to young people. That is not as absurd as you might think. Jones often used misdirection to make a point. He was one of the smartest and most unpredictable legislators I’ve covered. He often engaged in outrageous behavior to make a point — including even launching into Greek language during a Senate filibuster. So in hindsight, I’ve wondered if he was just pretending to be too drunk to make a final-passage motion to demonstrate his opposition to the leadership pressure to exempt alcohol from the standard adulthood definition. I confess, I hesitated writing this column.
Cliffy, as his friends called him, was a mentor for me when I first started covering the statehouse. I learned so much from him about process, politics and policy. But there is something else about Cliffy, who passed years ago, that comforts me in writing his column. He was brutal in demanding honesty and disclosure — including about himself. One of my journalism students discovered that candor from an assignment to interview Cliffy for a profile on the closing days of his last year in Missouri’s legislature. My student was uncomfortable when I advised she had to ask about the decades of truly entertaining stories about his drinking. Cliffy’s answer was illustrative of what made him so special for reporters. “Of course you have to ask that question. I’m not proud of it, but it is part of my legacy,” was how I remember the student telling me of Cliffy’s response to her near apology for asking the question. Editor’ s note: Phill Brooks has been a statehouse reporter since 1970, making him dean of the statehouse press corps. He is the statehouse correspondent for KMOX Radio, director of MDN and an emeritus MU faculty member.
Ordinary officers perform extraordinary service Editor’ s note: National observances are so numerous we frequently choose not to publicize. But the following focus seems particularly appropriate as America observes National Police Week, May 13-19. The circumstances, which unfolded at Clinton in central Missouri, could occur anywhere. The following is provided by office of the United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri. It is also available online at http://www.justice.gov/wdmo
Officer Gary Michael, Jr., had been on duty at his dream job with the Clinton Police Department for less than a year when he conducted a routine traffic stop. Sergeant Carl Cosper, Jr., traveled a familiar stretch of highway when he responded to a routine domestic violence call. Neither Officer Michael nor Sgt. Cosper returned home to their families after those routine calls; both were killed in the line of duty. Their deaths remind us that, for those sworn to protect and serve, nothing is routine. Every ordinary day could present a matter of life and death. Every ordinary officer makes a hero’s decision, on a daily basis, to do something quite extraordinary – to put their lives on the line for the sake of their community. Officer Michael and Sgt. Cosper are two of the 129 law enforcement officers in the United States to fall in the line of duty in 2017. They made the ultimate sacrifice, and we owe them our undying gratitude. There is no more important duty of government than to protect its citizens from harm. In the cause of public safety, law enforcement officers are our first line of defense. Speaking for myself as well as the Department of Justice, we will continue to “Back the Blue,” as Attorney General Jeff Sessions says, as we are all united in our efforts to reduce crime in America. Aside from national security, my highest priority is to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer. As we reinvigorate our efforts to take guns out of the hands of criminals, curb drug trafficking, and eradicate gangs, we rely on our partners in law enforcement. Collaboration with state and local law enforcement is critical for the Department of Justice. We not only need the support of our law enforcement partners to accomplish this goal, but we need the community’s support as well. Officer Michael and Sergeant

McCaskill backs effort to suspend import taxes on newsprint U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill is backing a bipartisan push to halt excessive taxes on paper imports that are critical to Missouri’s newspaper and printing industries. The bipartisan legislation, which has been endorsed by printers and publishers representing more than 600,000 American jobs, would suspend the import taxes on uncoated groundwood paper while the Department of Commerce examines the health of — and the
effects on — the printing and publishing industry. “Local news, and newspapers that provide it, are critical pieces of a community and our democracy — they pay attention to what’s going on, hold those in authority accountable, and tell the important stories of folks making a difference in the community,” McCaskill says. “Newspapers Sare already struggling to stay in business with the changing economy — and the last thing they need are
added costs that were imposed based on what appears to be the request of a single mill owned by a venture-capital firm that’s looking to increase their profits on the backs of newspaper companies across the country.” In late 2017, the Department of Commerce initiated antidumping and countervailing duty investigations into the Canadian uncoated groundwood paper industry on behalf of a single doe mill. ised May 2018 mestic paper This paper is used by news-
papers and numerous other commercial printers in the U.S., including publications printed at Gallatin Publishing Company. The import taxes are as high as 32% on some products, and that cost is passed on to printers, book publishers, and newspapers that are already under severe economic stress. Nearly all of the U.S. paper in. dustry opposes these import taxes, including the large trade association representing the entire industry, the American Forest
and Paper Association, because the Department of Commerce’s action threatens to decimate the paper industry’s customers and injure printers and publishers. McCaskill has been a strong advocate on behalf of Missouri businesses and workers. McCaskill recently responded to a letter from a bipartisan group of 16 Missouri State Senators expressing concerns over the Administration’s decision to impose tariffs on manufacturing and agriculture imports.

Food safety workshop in Grundy By Tim Baker, MU Regional Horticulturist Last year, we started a series of workshops to train produce growers about food safety. Growers who sell over $25,000 of produce covered under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) must attend one of these workshops to comply with the law. Covered growers must be trained at one of these workshops by January 2020, so we will offer these workshops periodically until then. 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 eight-hour workshop covers how to identify risks, best practices to reduce risks, key parts of the FSMA’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 Grundy County workshop is scheduled for May 24. If you would like to attend this workshop, please call the Daviess County Extension Center at 660-663-3232, 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. For a list of additional workshops in Missouri and Kansas, take a look at this web page: http://www.ksre.k-state.edu/ foodsafety/produce. Check out the section titled “FSMA Produce Safety Rule Grower Training.” Growers must attend the entire eight hours to get credit for taking the course.
Get hooked on MDC Free Fishing Days Want some free fun that gets family and friends outside in nature? Get hooked on fishing with the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) Free Fishing Days June 9 and 10. During Free Fishing Days, anyone may fish in the Show-Me State without having to buy a fishing permit, trout permit, or trout park daily tag. Aside from not needing permits, other fishing regulations remain in effect, such as limits on size and number of fish an angler may keep. Special permits may still be required at some county, city, or private fishing areas. Trespass laws remain in effect on private property. Conservation makes Missouri a great place to fish, and Free Fishing Days encourages people to sample the state’s abundant fishing opportunities.

The meeting adjourned at 3:55 p.m. The above information is taken from the minutes of the May 9, 2018, meeting of the Daviess County Commission. All commissioners were present. Bills were approved. Assessor’s Office The retirement reception for Norma Griffin is scheduled from 2-4 p.m. on Friday, May 25 in the lobby of the Daviess County courthouse. In a few weeks the assessor’s office will mail out value change notices for 2018 assessment year. These notices are sent out on parcels that have had an increase in value from the prior tax year due to the following reasons: new construction of a residence, out building, commercial improvement; addition to existing structures such as decks, patios, porches, etc.; corrections made through sale reviews such as bathroom counts, finished basements, etc. If any of these things were added or updated to your improvement from last year, you will more than likely receive a notice. If you receive one and have questions, please call our office. Representatives from the assessor’s office will be in the field reviewing new construction in Jackson and Liberty Townships this week.

Ownership change at Taylor Chevrolet Maysville’s longtime Chevrolet dealership recently changed ownership, when it sold to Mike Oyster and his son, Reid Oyster, of Freeman. The business will now be known as Pearl Chevrolet. The Oysters’ family business was in school bus transportation, the Apple Bus Company. The Oysters sold their stake in the bus business in 2016 and started looking for car dealerships that were for sale in rural towns. Their conversations with Mark Taylor, Clark Taylor and Kerri Huffaker culminated with the purchase of the Taylor Chevrolet dealership on May 2. Roger Klein will be general manager, and Brian McDermott will remain as mechanic. The Oysters will be hiring locally for the shop and the sales staff.
Reid Oyster said, “We see this as an opportunity to turn a smalltown dealership into something special, and we’re looking to do the same in other communities. Our goal is to improve and expand the operation here.” The Oysters have joined in the St. Joseph marketing group and will be included in all of the TV commercials that the Chevy dealers in St. Joseph produce. There will be many new and used cars for sale at the dealership soon, and they expect that the business will be heavily internet-sales driven. A grand opening will be held, probably in August, to coincide with the auction the Taylors will have. The Oysters also would like to recognize the Taylor family for 46 years of service to the community.

The Gallatin National Honor Society sent five members to Olathe, KS, to volunteer at the Kids TLC Autism Clinic on May 14. Students were fortunate enough to participate in all daily routine activities at the school. Activities included playing with the kids at recess, group and individual sessions, lunch, and even partnering on an arts and crafts activity. The day ended with an in-depth question/answer session with staff. NHS members are excited to help purchase items on Kids TLC’s wish list and deliver them next fall.

Students compete in juried art show On May 4, students from Pattonsburg High School competed in the 14th annual Lawson High School Invitational Juried Art Show which is sponsored by the Lawson High School Art Club as a club fundraiser. There were a total of 173 pieces entered from area schools, including Cameron Middle School, Pattonsburg, Richmond High School, Cameron High School, and Lawson High School and Middle School. The show was judged by Lari Bunch. Lari has worked in the visual and performing arts for over 20 years. She has taught
and studied art most of her life and currently does graphic design and owns an apparel business. Mrs. Sherry Siever, art teacher at Pattonsburg, entered 13 pieces of work in the show based on their artistic merit. The following students won medals or ribbons at the show: Draven Mikes, “Lost in space,” 1st place overall; Jillian Plymell, “Cityscape,” 2nd place Middle School; and Grace Warner, “Boom,” and Madison Hulett, “Lost in Color,” honorable mention.

Monday night’s fifth inning lightning break did the Pattonsburg Panthers no favor. The Panthers, leading 4-2 when inclement weather moved in from the southwest, gave up three runs when play resumed and saw their season end one game short of the Class 1, District 15 baseball final. Northeast Nodaway made the most of its final at bats. Shortstop Spencer Weir bashed a home run to lead off the bottom of the fifth inning and pitcher Ethan Adwell helped his cause with an RBI-double to tie the game at 4-4. The Panthers, who could muster only one hit and three total base runners in the final three frames, lost the lead in the sixth inning when the Bluer Jays sent nine batters to the plate, scoring three runs on a single, error, three walks and a hit batter. Pattonsburg opened the game with a run when Peyton Jones walked and came home on a twoout single by Logan Pankau. NE Nodaway tied the game in the bottom of the first on a lead-off error and a bloop single to right field that fell between second base, center and right. The Panthers took advantage of some shaky play by the Jays in the third inning. Cameron Jones
led off with a walk. Cole Dilley struck out on a wild pitch but made it safely to first as Jones took second. Pankau drove in Jones on an infield single. Connor Ireland took a pitch in the back to load the bases. Justin Booth singled to score Dilley. Peyton Jones hit into a 4-6-3 double play that scored Pankau to give the Panthers a 4-2 cushion. The Jays tallied a lone run in the fourth inning on a walk and RBI-single from Spencer Gray. The Panthers blasted Grundy County, 17-0, in the district opener last Friday. Peyton Jones tripled, singled twice and scored four runs. Cameron Jones tripled, homered, drove in four runs and scored twice. Dilley singled twice, walked, was hit by a pitch and scored four times. Pankau singled, doubled, homered, drove in four and scored four runs. Booth anchored the lower part of the Panther batting order with two RBI and a run scored. Connor Ireland scored a run. Kaden de Jong singled and drove in three runs. Dylan McCrary scored twice for the Panthers. Pattonsburg finished 14-2 on the season. The only other Panther loss came at the hands of Class 3 Trenton early in the season.
in the show: Matt Henry, Justin Booth, Peyton Jones, Shelby Jones, Angelina Anderson, Brittany Adams, Shelby Snider, Melanie Rogers, and Katie Warford. *****
Memorial Day weekend will bring an increase of motorists on the roadway. Whatever your plans are, remember that Missouri’s roads are for all motorists. Drive courteously.

North Daviess prepares time capsule, to open in 2024-25 Students in Tina Granier’s fifth and sixth grade class at North Daviess R-3 recently finished a month-long time capsule project. The capsules will be opened in their senior year of school. The 2024 and 2025 graduates included letters, diaries, journals, and a platform speech for class president elections in the time capsule. They also predicted what careers they’d have, where they’d be living, and what kind of family life they would be experiencing in the year 2041 — when most would be 35 years old. Through Title One paraprofessional teacher Vera Nelson, the students recorded data of current events, such as gas and milk prices. Mrs. Nelson had the students write a complete summary report in three to five paragraphs, utilizing the introduction, conclusions and general writing process of “Kali,” the eight-chapter journey of the polar bear, provided through the Gallatin North Missourian. Students were encouraged to read daily from the newspapers and collect six articles of interest in their personal time capsule. The time capsule project concluded with a class picture and decorating the outside of their capsules with autographs and drawings. North Daviess Principal Kelly Hightree visited the classroom almost daily to see the progress and encourage the writing that the students were finding fun, but at the same time educational.

F riend s in C h rist Shonna Morrison led the opening, and Peggy Earnst prayed for the congregation. The praise song was “Guardian Angel.” We began a new sermon series “The Grass is Always Greener” by Clay Scroggins of North Point Church in Atlanta, GA. The message was called “The Other Side” and was based on 1 Samuel 9:1 and 1 Samuel 18:6-9. G allatin A ssemb ly of G od The adult Sunday School class study was from II Corinthians 1011. We learned of the Apostle Paul’s warning to the church about false teachers who made themselves appear to be the answer, rather than giving glory to Christ. Clyde Lint led the study and said, “Learn the truth of God’s word so that you will recognize false teachers.” The service began with “This is the Day.” This week’s offering was received as we sang “Marching On.” Tina McFee gave a report of giving to the missionaries. Tim Johnson shared the prayer requests and led in praying. Mothers were recognized with a special word, a prayer, and a gift. Worship time was by Zoe Smith, which included “Old Time Power.” It was announced the New Creation singers will be ministering at 10:45 a.m. on May 20. Pastor Smith gave the message using Proverbs 1:10 and 15 as the text. He spoke of a mother’s value to her family as God designed. A ltamont United Meth od ist

She gave each one a beautifully wrapped student Bible. Her message was “God’s Nightlight.” A shampoo basket for mothers was passed around and red carnations were given to all ladies. Special music was a tape by Tim Parton “She Danced” and Blythe Hunter presented a solo, “Amazing Grace.” We were happy to have Pastor Marilyn’s daughter, Melanie and family, and the Steth Collins family of Lenexa, KS, as visitors. Decorated cakes and drinks were served following worship time. Prayer continues for Vanda Davis for strength.

a Godl mother
Joe Michael - Cell: 660-663-9779
Our town, our state, our nation, our world needs more Godly mothers (fathers also, but that is another story for another day). Godly mothers don't happen by accident, and they do not raise godly children by accident. I heard about a mother of three very active young boys who was asked by some sensitive soul, “If you had it to do over again, would you still have children?” The young mother responded, “Sure I would ...but not just the same ones.” That can be told as a joke, but I am not telling it as one. It is a serious matter to consider that our children do not turn out the way they do by accident. Godly mothers and godly children do not happen by accident. Planning, preparing, protecting, and persevering are necessities. You may not know who Jochebed is, but you surely have heard of her son, Moses. Exodus Chapter 2 does not name Moses' parents but it tells their story. Exodus 6 and Numbers 26 reveal their names, Aram and Jochebed. The first nine verses of Exodus 2 tell us how Jochebed got to be a godly mother. Verse one declares very simply with no explanation that both were from the tribe of Levi, the priestly tribe; thus, we see that Aram and Jochebed chose godly spouses. Your chances of being a godly mother are very low unless you marry a godly husband. You will not marry a godly husband unless you plan to do so. The Hebrews were slaves in Egypt. To keep them weak, the Egyptian Pharaoh ordered that all Hebrew boy babies be killed. Verse 2 says that Jochebed hid the baby Moses for three months. The point is that Jochebed risked her own life to save the life of her child. It also means that she was willing to subjugate her wishes and desires to the task at hand, protecting and nurturing her child. Hiding an infant who is being hunted by the authorities would be an all-consuming job. Being a godly mother is an all-consuming job. Verse 3 tells us that Jochebed prepared a basket of papyrus so that she could hide her precious baby in the Nile River. Can you imagine the care that went into preparing that basket? Can you imagine how much time was spent selecting the materials? The many coats of water-proofing? The many inspections that basket passed before it was deemed worthy for Jochebed to entrust her child to it? Preparation is necessary in being a Godly mother who raises a Godly child. Your chances of raising a godly child are very low unless you spend a great deal of time selecting and preparing and inspecting those things which you will entrust your child to. As a godly mother, you will need to examine closely the friends, entertainment, school, etc. that you entrust your child to. A godly mother regularly and consistently monitors and regulates her child's cell phone, internet, television, movies, friendships, etc. To do anything less is neglect. That is every bit as important as Jochebed's basket. The Hebrew language in verse 3 is very interesting. The word which we have translated as “papyrus basket” is exactly the same word used in Genesis 6-9 to describe Noah's Ark. These are the only two passages where this word is found. Noah's Ark and Moses' Ark are both pictures of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jochebed hid her child from the world for a while but when it became apparent that she could hide him no longer, she entrusted him to Christ. You have no chance of being a godly mother unless you place your child in the care of Christ. Keep in mind that your child is a free moral agent who will make his own decisions. You place him in the care of Christ and the rest is up to him; you will have done your job.

Lois Yost paves the way for young women today, honored with Patriot Award from Gallatin DAR
The Gallatin Daughters of the American Revolution presented their Patriot Award to Lois Yost in a ceremony on May 9.
she was awarded the WWII Victory Medal; Asiatic Pacific Campaign; American Campaign; the Phillippine Liberation. “I enjoyed the service,” she said. “I’ve had a lot of benefits from it. I wouldn’t take anything for the experience.”
“We thank Lois for her service to our country and her example to our community,” noted Markay August, Chapter Regent, during the ceremony. “It is with great pleasure that we present our first Patriot Award to a woman, Martha Lois Yost.”
Women graduating from high school today are free to take whatever path they please — go to college, enter the workforce, join the military. Their way was paved more than 70 years ago by women like Gallatin’s Lois Yost. In the 1940s, War War II raged in Europe and the South Pacific and the traditional roles of wife and mother were forever changed as America called its young women to help with the war effort. They helped at home, on the farm and factory, and in uniform. In order to free men to fight, for the first time in America’s history, women drove trucks, became radio and telegraph operators, broke codes, repaired airplanes, and did whatever else was required of them. For Lois, whose memory must go back half a century to recapture that time, it was fun, but also scary, exciting, but also sad. Lois,
now 94, was born in Kansas and when she was four, moved with her family to a farm in Red Cloud, Neb. She graduated and taught school for two years in Nebraska and one year in Iowa. Around this time, her parents bought a farm in Daviess County. Another thing happened about this time — On Dec. 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. After the horrific surpise military attack, Lois was not necessarily itching to get in the fight, but she was caught up in the wave of impassioned patriotism that swept across the country. “My oldest brother was in the Army. My youngest brother was in the Navy Seabees. My sister worked as a civilian secretary to a major in Washington, D.C. I wanted to do my part, too,” said Lois. “I think people were a lot more patriotic at that time in history.”
The next spring, Lois joined a unit of the Naval Reserve called WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) during WWII. Lois was only 20-years-old at the time. She needed to be 21 to join. So, in order to join, she had to have her parent’s consent, a preacher’s recommendation, and the recommendation of at least three neighbors. She got all that and went to boot camp at Hunter College in the Bronx, New York.
Markay August, right, presented ois Yost with the DAR Patriot Award L o is ’ s o n William ( B ill) attended th e ev ent. “Oh, I was young,” she said. “Everything was new and fun in a way.”
Lois was a gunnery inspector stationed in Pensacola, Fla. How did a 20-year-old girl from Missouri wind up in Florida teaching bomber crews how to shoot machine guns? For Lois it was almost a natural progression. “Being from the midwest, I didn’t have to be told to hold my rifle against my shoulder,” she told the Gallatin DAR at a ceremony to receive their first ever Patriot Award. In fact, she was such a good shot with her pistol that the trainers took bets on her. An article was written about her after her impressive display of marksmanship -- only one of her shots missed the bullseye. Lois said her classroom had room for a screen and a movie projector. The screen depicted each .50 caliber machine gun turret. The training was a mockup of an attack by a Japanese aircraft. “The bomber planes were the same as the Army’s B24, but the Navy called them PB442,” said Lois. “We used the screens to make sure the gunners had the right number of rads when shooting back at the zeroes.” The ‘zeroes’ were the Japanese war planes, Lois explained, and the ‘rads’ refers to the radius. Lois
was teaching these
Lois married Glen Yost after leaving the Navy. They lived on a farm by Pattonsburg and had three children. The were married for 56 years. Glen passed away in 2003. Lois is a member of the United Methodist Church of Gallatin and a life member of the VFW
young men lessons vital and highly valued…how to shoot a machine gun from inside the turret of a bomber…how to recognize enemy aircraft…how not to mistake the enemy for one of their own. In short, how to come out of the fight alive. Did it bother any of the young men to be taught by a woman? Hardly, Lois says. “They liked being taught by pretty young women,” she laughs. “There were six sailors and six WAVES that taught the classes. More often than not, the sailors asked for one of the WAVES to teach them.”
The crews came for training
for six weeks, left to take other classes, then came back for their finals before being shipped overseas to combat. Though Florida was a long way from the battlegrounds, there was no escaping death, tragedy and heartache that came with war. “Crew took off with green pilots,” recalls Lois. “An engine might catch on fire, or they’d do the wrong thing, bank on the wrong side, and crash right there on the field.” Lois remembers one plane that took off and was lost to the Bermuda Triangle. “It disappeared without a sign,” she says. “It was never heard of again. It was a mystery.”
Lois served for 22 months in the Navy Reserves, from 19421944. Among other citations,

The Navy had high standards
and a specific, and complicated, process for women who wished to become a WAVE. “It wasn’t hard for me as I remember,” says Lois, Petty Officer 3rd Class. “I qualified for everything.” Boot camp was designed as a way to transition the soldier from civilian to military life. Not everyone made the transition with ease. Some women had difficulty with the new lifestyle, and others failed completely. But not Lois…
Auxiliary. Lois has three children, nine grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild. Lois said she has especially loves two things in life -- flowers and babies--. Her family has given her five generations of babies; and on Mother’s Day her children helped her plant a flower garden. Lois has enjoyed her life as a wife and mother. But when Amercia needed her to switch roles and be something more and different, she answered the call. Would she do it again? “Oh yes,” Lois says. “If I was that young again, I would.”

Do I need to take any special precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunocompromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/ CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

3rd STRAIGHT CLASS 1A
( co ntinued from
pag e 1 )
Garnett’s GHS best one-day total at state in 2002. Simmons’s 81 on Tuesday gave him a one-shot Gold Medal victory over Miller’s Presten Richardson. Four other golfers in the Class 1 field finished within three strokes of the winning pace. “Jett is a special player that obviously doesn’t come around very often,” his coach said. “He has a unique ability to go about his
business and not let things get to him,” he added. “He’s everything you want in a golfer.” Simmons’s first place finish gave the Bulldog senior an unprecedented four state medals, including fourth place medals in 2016 and 2017 and a fifth place medal in 2015. Gallatin’s success in the Class 1 tournament was a team effort that culminated in a third straight state championship. Gabe Cole shot 177 to finish in the top 30. Logan Burns
totaled 181 for 36th place among 88 competitors. Haden Bradford shot 188 and Colin Beck totaled 190 for two days. “We had five kids that could go down there and shoot under 100 both days,” Coach Sullenger remarked. “No one else had that!” Sullenger also thanked the community for following the team to Springfield. “We had well over 30 people down there,” he said. “That was the most, by far, of any school.”
