During the June 11 public meeting of the Gallatin Board of Alderman, Mayor Barb Ballew announced that, unfortunately, the city will not be having a July 4 event at Dockery Park this year. For the past several years, the Independence Day celebration at the city’s park has been organized and financed by Gold Key. The Gallatin event is suspended

this year due to a lack of funds. A traditional fireworks display is planned at Lake Viking for Saturday, June 30. Guests and nonlake members are invited to the spectacular fireworks display if viewing from the public parking area east from the lake office. In other business at Monday’s meeting of the aldermen, CPA

New Medicare card, same old scammers Medicare is mailing new, more secure Medicare cards with a Medicare number that’s unique to every person with Medicare. Medicare is getting rid of the old card because the old Medicare number was based on a person’s Social Security

number. Scammers sometimes use Social Security numbers to try to steal someone’s identity, open new credit cards or even take out loans in someone else’s name. Your benefits won’t change (continued on page 3)

Due to the drought conditions experienced across Daviess County for the past 18 months, the Daviess County Farm Service Agency is now accepting applications for the Emergency Conservation Program (ECP). Eligible producers can sign up at the county FSA office between June 6 and July 6, 2018. ECP is a cost-share program that allows producers to install water conservation measures during periods of severe drought to supply emergency water for livestock. If you currently haul water or are within 30 days of being out of water for your livestock, you may qualify for ECP. To qualify for ECP, producers must have had a sufficient water source in a non-drought year, and must now be in immediate need for water for your livestock. The program will only pro-

vide cost-share on the minimum cost to provide an immediate adequate water source, including a connection to a rural water line to a producer’s property. The minimum requirement for ECP eligibility for Daviess County is operating on at least 20 acres and own at least 10 animal units. Producers may receive up to 75% cost-share for permanent water supply structures, and up to 50% cost-share for temporary structures. Eligible permanent structures include, but are not limited to, the following: ● Permanent tank, including pad and installation up to 200 feet of pipe and trenching ● Permanent meter set and connection fee

● Well, with pump house, drilling,

installation, liner, casing, etc.

● Eligible temporary structures include, but are not limited to: ● Temporary tank, including temporary water lines up to 200 feet ● Spring development, collection box, pipe, lid, etc.

● Temporary meter set and connection fee After applying for ECP, an environmental review must be done to determine eligibility. Producers cannot begin work until notified they are eligible to start. It is important to know that, even if approved, ECP can be terminated at any time, if sufficient precipitation improves conditions enough to where the program is not needed. For more information about ECP or to apply, stop by the Daviess County FSA Office.

Jesse James Days shot down

A popular summer event in Winston won’t be held this year. Jesse James Days, which usually takes place in mid-July, has been canceled for now. The Winston Historical Society hosts the annual event. There are five officers in the organization: Gary Caldwell, Brandi Goll, Terry Caldwell, Barbara Caldwell and Autumn Caldwell. Gary Caldwell, who is president of the Historical Society, says he wasn’t feeling well for a few weeks this spring and simply ran out of time. “I went through a bad spell and it got away from me,” he says. The event, which saw its 30th year last year, takes a lot of manpower to pull off every year. “So many things need to be done, not just that day, but in the days before, and everybody was busy this year,” Mr. Caldwell says. “Normally, over the years,

we’ve had plenty of people. But people get old, they move away. There’s hardly anybody left that’s interested. Most of the younger kids are not really interested in history.” The event does not cost a lot to put on and it’s been a good money maker for the historical society. “It always makes money,” Mr. Caldwell says. “We sell food and this and that. We don’t have a lot of outlay on money. It’s more a problem of help with the work than money.” Jesse James Day is a timehonored tradition for the small town of Winston, and at least for now it may only be delayed. Mr. Caldwell is hoping to do something later on in the year with a Jesse James theme. “Later on, when it gets cooler, we may have a one-day event. We don’t know yet.” Though the exact plans for

the fall event are not yet set, the Winston Historical Society will be sure to bring the newspaper that information as soon as it’s available. In the past, one of the big draws of Jesse James Days has been the evening concerts. Music shows will probably be included in the one-day event. “We have a gospel group and the Kountry Gone Crazy band,” Mr. Caldwell says. “Me and my brothers and sisters put on a Hee-Haw type show.” While Jesse James Days may take a year off, there’s no plan to hang up the six-guns for good. “I hope it will continue,” Mr. Caldwell says. “Not this year, but next year and years to come.” For this year, Mr. Caldwell believes canceling the event is the best solution. “I thought it had better get called off, rather than try to do it and not be able,” he says.

Dirt work in Industrial Park McBee Farms has purchased a tract of land in the Gallatin Industrial Park and will be building a maintenance building and grain elevators, according to owner Steven McBee. The elevators are for private use. The work is expected to be completed in September.

The Gallatin Area Business Park is 120 acres in size and is located on the northern edge of Gallatin along State Highway 6. The real estate was sold by Farmers Electric Cooperative. The City of Gallatin owns two acres in roadways.

Companies currently located within the Gallatin Park include Noel’s Nursery & Landscaping (the business has been closed for a few years, but the Noels still own the property); Silvers Wood Products; Gibson Properties; and Access II Living Center.

Gallatin community rallies around ‘Life, love, hope’ ...for Lori! The Gallatin community rallied in dramatic way last Friday in a fund-raising effort for kidney transplant prospect Lori Kloepping. For nearly two hours a line of people overflowed from inside the Lions Club Community Building into the parking lot and sometimes to the street, prompting motorists passing by to wonder what could possibly convince anyone to stand in such summer heat!

The fish fry presented by Gallatin Men’s Club was outstanding, but this wasn’t about the fish. The night’s silent auction and supper raised over $15,500 and helped elevate overall donations for the Kloeppings to reach an initial goal of over $30,000. People simply wanted to support one of our own ...someone now in need who has spent her life giving back to community.

Lori’s friend Cheryl (Haggerty) Hoke describes Lori this way: “She’s always ready and willing to lend a hand to help her family, friends, church, and community. Lori has lived her entire life giving to anyone who needed help and support, as has her entire family.” Cheryl set up a GoFundMe account for Lori back in October 2017. The financial challenge continues for the Kloeppings as

does Lori’s physical challenge. Lori Kloepping needs a new kidney. And through a very complicated and very coordinated organ trade, she has one. This transplant chain involves eight people — four recipients and four donors. Although Lori’s daughter, Kara, was not a match for Lori, she was a match for someone else needing a kidney. And

Security breach by Freida Marie Crump

Juggling career and fatherhood We lost the game, despite my best efforts. The thing about playing defensive end is that whenever you’re doing your job right, the football game will flow away from you. It gets frustrating, unable to help your teammates, unable to make any tackles, and unable to keep from losing when you should have won. The ride home from the gridiron back to the farm was short. Our farm was the first one outside of town. But I cherished those moments riding home with Dad, replaying those Friday night games still fresh with sweat. It wasn’t father-to-son, not quite teacher- or coach-tostudent. It was more like manto-man, which I came to understand better only later. But this night I was so completely frustrated that I slammed my gear into the back seat of the ol’ Ford 500 Galaxie and exclaimed too loudly, “I don’t want to talk about it.” All Dad said was, “Alright.” And he meant it. Before we pulled off the blacktop curve onto the short gravel road to our place I realized my mistake. I really wanted to talk to my Dad right then. Badly. But neither one of us broke the silence. He was too busy parenting, teaching me restraint on handling emotions. I was too busy acting like a pouting child. It’s a memory as vivid as any of the many spankings I deserved. Dad taught me how once something’s said, you can’t take it back. Another time, when things were going good, Dad planned a slight expansion. We were holding over enough calves from market that erecting a new grain bin was in order. Space was getting sparse, what with farm equipment and dump trucks competing with the feed lot and loading chute for space around the barn. I overheard Dad asking Mom about where in the world we could build the new bin. I was heavy into my know-itall years, taking an architectural drafting class in high school which happened to be focusing on the efficient use of space at that particular time. So, I suggested that if the round bin were positioned on the outside of the feed lot with its doorway opening conveniently into the feed lot, the problem was solved. And that’s what we did. I was amazed to realize how Dad listened to me, just a kid. He showed me what I thought mattered.

Dad could do the unexpected. He chose one Halloween to smell the roses. I wrapped myself with strips of an old white bed sheet to fashion a sort of mummy outfit, complete with drips of bloody red catsup at the appropriate places. But I was quite surprised to see Dad in coveralls topped with a face-covering stocking cap, holding a gunny sack filled with a few cans of food. I was even more surprised when just the two of us borrowed my grandpa’s car to roll up quietly to a few select farmhouses undetected.

O the Editor s S ike

by Darryl Wilkinson

I rang the door bell to get my candy. But then Dad would come out from nowhere, keeping the door ajar with his foot while motioning for the “victim” to add more canned goods to his stash. Without a word, we had one stuttering neighbor backtracking in circles around his kitchen table and, at the next stop, another (my cousin, no less) calling the sheriff. We had to fix a flat tire before returning grandpa’s car that night, leading Dad to lecture me about never ever borrowing anything (unless you have to). But, oh, what laughs we shared about that night. Dad showed me how some things, especially the unusual things in life, are worth the effort. Dad couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket. Oh, he didn’t mind listening to music as long as it was Johnny Cash or George Jones or “Gentleman Jim” Reeves. But he knew his place was in the audience and not on stage, even in the privacy of our open basement shower. But he provided me with a trumpet and attended the band concerts of all us kids just as if each concert were a ball game. Much later in life, a few cousins reunited around the piano of the little country church where we were raised. It was rather bold to sing a special without any practice during Sunday morning worship service. I’m sure the voices were faded some by age and, no doubt, the harmony was quite out of bal-

ance. But afterwards, when Dad said he could pick out my voice, somehow he conveyed warmth rather than ridicule. And, once again after all these years and him graduating to granddad, Dad was ... well, still is my Dad. So, next Sunday is another Father’s Day that rings a little sadly since Dad is now several years gone. But my grief is brief when I reflect on what it takes being a father. Dad’s still with me, you see. He always will be. Some say fatherhood and career are incompatible. They say you can’t be a full time father and have a full time job. Yes, sometimes there are conflicts to be resolved, and sometimes one must give a little for the other. But from this son’s perspective, the “either/or” is not necessarily true. I don’t ever remember Dad taking a full day off from work to go fishing with me; he taught me how to handle a .22 but the only hunting we did was against wild dogs running the cattle. But I do remember the quarry’s lime dust shaking off his shirt and pants as he hit me a few fly baseballs before it was time to do the milking. This happened many times. And although most summer holidays were spent in the hay fields, I distinctly remember one holiday when he instead erected a new basketball goal on an old telephone pole in the back yard next to the chicken house. My Dad could make me feel on top of the world! Good fathers want to be more than just breadwinners. That is God’s plan. Nobody I knew (or know now) worked harder than my Dad. Honoring my father meant anticipating the wrench next needed and handing the correct size to him just when he needed it on the first try. Dad taught how honest work has its own reward. Although nothing but a “go for,” I was included in celebrating each successful repair. We relished the moment of our triumph by pausing for some water before he’d nudge things forward with a softly spoken but self-confident “What’s next?” Much is being said these days about women who juggle careers and parenting, but good fathers have been doing it for ages. The truth is many men do both very well and I say this not just because Sunday is Father’s Day but because being a real father is a calling. Everyday. And in so very many ways.

Greetings from the Poosey. “Freida, we’re gonna buy American and that settles it!” Those were the words of the immortal Herb Crump as we lit out car shopping last week. “I’ve had it with the imports, Freida. It’s an American car or we’re buyin’ a horse!” Although the very thought of my husband trying to crawl onto a horse in his dilapidated condition was tempting, I nodded my head and went along with him like I had good sense. President Trump has declared that imported autos and parts are a threat to national security. Canada has apparently become a menace. He’s asked Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to investigate slapping tariffs on anything on wheels that might be considered “foreign,” and Herb happily climbed onto the tariff bandwagon as we took off on our America first shopping spree. “Herb, we’re driving a Nissan and before that we had a Honda. Do you mean to tell me that those cars were a threat to our national security? Did they have secret recording devices hidden in the windshield wipers? Did I go all that time without noticing those three Russian spies in our trunk?” “You’re missing the point, Freida. This hoard of foreign cars hurts our economy and that means fewer sales of U.S. cars, which means less tax coming into the government coffers, which means less money to spend on defense. You’ve got to think these things through.” “We need the money to bomb the Toyota factories?” “You’re missing the point!” “And you just missed the driveway. We just passed the Ford dealership.” I certainly had nothing against buying American, but as the day progressed, we had a more and more difficult time telling what made in America meant. “There it is, Freida! The all-American car!” Herb’s beady eyes had narrowed in on a Ford Fusion and as he started chumming up with a salesman. I started reading the fine print on the window sticker and doing a bit of research on my phone. I had to interrupt the salesman’s pitch. “Herb this car was made in Hermosillo, Mexico.” Herbie swallowed a bit of his chaw and spit out a profound, “What?” “Mexico, Herb. It’s a Mexican car. Somehow it jumped the border wall, fooled the immigration officials, hid its children in the back seat and ended up at this car dealership. You ask me, our national security is in big trouble.” The salesman shrugged a guilty shrug and we climbed into our old threat to national security and headed on down the road. American cities used to be surrounded by groves of trees and fields of waving grain. Today’s towns have carpeted their outskirts with car dealerships so it wasn’t long before we came upon another dealership. I also downloaded the skinny on most “American” cars. “There it is!” cried Herbie. “The all-American car if ever I saw one,” and we pulled into the Jeep dealership. “The Jeep Renegade! Now that’s a man’s car! That’s an American man’s car!” As Herb was choking down his testosterone-laden chewing gum I looked it up. “It’s made in Italy.” “Oh come on now, Freida! Surely not the whole thing!” “You’re right. Many of the parts are made in Brazil and China.” The man’s countenance was now dragging the floorboard. He knew what was coming. But as I checked the facts on my phone, he started mumbling possible cars to investigate. “A Lincoln SUV… one of the big MKZ’s?” I stared at him. “Mexico, Herb.” “Freida!” he growled. “Just skip the foreign list and tell me which cars are mainly made in America.” I breathed a short sigh, fearing a cardiac at our steering wheel. “Well, Herbie,” I said, “Sevety percent of Japanese Acura’s are made in the U.S.; 55 percent of the Japanese Nissans. . . “ “Okay, okay!” he said. “Just skip to the top. What’s the most purchased American-made car?” “The Toyota Camry.” We drove home in silence…me wondering when we’d ever be able to trade cars again and Herbie completely despondent over how our national security has been breached. You ever ‘round Poosey, stop by. We may not answer the door but you’ll enjoy the trip.

Improving our water infrastructure by Co n g res s man S am G rav es

Every two years, Congress takes up legislation designed to improve and enhance river infrastructure throughout the country. The Water Resources Development Act, or WRDA for short, deals with levees, locks, dams, ports, and anything else that might be related to the river. The Army Corps of Engineers is tasked with managing the river and Congress directs what projects they should work on. As a senior member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I get the opportunity to help craft the WRDA bill which affects two major rivers in North Missouri -- the Mississippi and Missouri -- as well as any other navigable body of water in the United States. When it comes to managing the river, flood control is always my first priority. We must do everything we can to enable local stakeholders to prevent floods in their backyards. There are currently measures in place enabling local authorities to pursue upgrading their flood control infrastructure. In the last few years, my constituents throughout North Missouri who rely on levees to protect their homes and businesses

have reached out to me with concerns about that process. President Trump has called for streamlined permitting for infrastructure projects as a key plank in his regulatory reform agenda, and I will fight to fix the permitting process in WRDA 2018. Additionally, the Corps has prioritized fish and birds over people and property, specifically on the Missouri River, and this has actually led to more flooding. The Corps is tasked with preventing floods. This bill makes it clear that people and property are more important than fish and birds, a principal you can always count on me supporting. While trying to prevent flooding is important, many other river initiatives are included in WRDA. Critical infrastructure such as locks, dams, and ports all contribute to a thriving economy on the river. I saw this firsthand when I toured Lock and Dam 20 and the Lewis County Port in Canton last fall and Port KC earlier this year. That’s why we’ll continue to place a strong emphasis on improving these important facilities in WRDA 2018. WRDA works. We take up the WRDA bill every two years because it enables us to update our priorities and enhance our river infrastructure.

A refresher course for an emergency E dit o r’ s n o t e: The following is reprinted from the Hale Horizons, one of several community newspapers printed each week at Gallatin Publishing Company. Although the details written by Karlene Hart apply specifically to that town of about 500 in Carroll County, the lessons learned generally may apply to other rural communities and are worth consideration.

This past week has been quite a learning experience for me and something I think we all need a refresher course or a little reminder about some things -- at least I have become more aware of certain things! Seldom are we the “first” to be on a scene of an emergency, such as a fire. For some reason I chose a different path Tuesday morning and was later than I had been for taking my walk. As I have recently been timing my walks, I took my cell phone; usually, I seldom take it with me. So, this is... Learning Lesson #1: Something not right, check it out -Don’t ignore it! When I saw the white mist coming from the vent at Lori Crackenberger’s salon, I really wasn’t thinking about it being smoke (actually it reminded me of light steam from a dryer vent). I remembered Lori’s “Open” sign displayed in the salon’s window and just thought she was doing something inside as I passed by the shop. I realized it was too hot to have steam from a dryer and who ever heard of a dryer vent near the roof! I noticed a “scorched” or “hot” smell and looked around to’ see if someone was burning something nearby. Finding nothing, I went back to’ see if there was a car in the parking lot and there was not. Thinking maybe someone might have brought her to town, I went to the door. When I opened the storm door, the smell of something hot was much stronger and I couldn’t see through the windows. I got Keith Berger’s attention and told him my concern. He tried the locked door and he agreed that something was going on inside and we wondered where was Lori. Learning Lesson #2: Don’t assume your call will be answered on the first ring after dialing 911. My phone rang 3-4 times before a dispatcher answered. Learning Lesson #3: Have your address in plain sight. Thank goodness Lori did and very visible! At the time I couldn’t remember the name of her salon, but when I told the dispatcher the address, she knew exactly where it was! Remember, it may be a stranger that makes that call on your behalf. Learning Lesson #4: When the dispatcher answered my call and asked my emergency, I gave

her the details. And then I was told to hold while they connected me to Carrollton’s Communication Center. I thought I had Carrollton and didn’t understand the transfer. That transfer didn’t take long, and I told the second lady dispatcher what I had told the first one. One of the dispatchers that took my call did ask for my number and who I was I do remember I had more questions from Carrollton’s dispatcher and was given instructions as to what to do -- or not to do. I later asked Chief Randall Foster why I had to repeat the emergency to two different people and this is what he believes happened. Beware of this: if you call on a landline in this area, the call goes directly to Carrollton. If you call from a cell phone, depending on where you are, your 911 call could go to Livingston, Chariton, or possibly Linn County towers and then be transferred to Carrollton. I guess mine did. It was all right; at least someone knew what and where the emergency was on the first call. But if you are frightened or in a hurry, you might hang up too soon. So, if you have access to both a cell phone and landline, choose that landline! Learning Lesson #5: The dispatcher asked if we knew where Lori was. Keith was using his phone trying to locate her or find someone who might know where she was or how she could be reached. I was then asked if I had a number for her and remembered the signs in the salon window. Sure enough, there was the number, but it was her home phone; not cell phone. Perhaps in this case it would be best to hear from someone you know over the phone with bad news. But it is a thought -- include that cell phone in case of emergency. Again, it might be a stranger doing that call and they might not know everyone in Hale as Keith and I do. Learning Lesson #6: Give out Carroll County Sheriff ’s Department more pats on the back. You know who was the first person responding to the call? A Carroll County Sheriff Deputy who was in the Tina area when he heard the call. Shortly after Randall Foster came to town from Chillicothe to bring the fire truck from the ‘’barn,’’ another deputy and Sheriff McCoy arrived on the scene. Never before had I seen a deputy helping on a fire truck, but he did as Randall and Ethan were trying to control

the situation. And Sheriff McCoy was not just a distant bystander. He was right there up front with Randall and Ethan while the first deputy to arrive was working with vehicles trying to go through Main Street. Learning Lesson #7: I was very impressed with what I saw! These volunteers were doing their job and doing it professionally from what I could see. There was no shouting to another as to who was to do what. Everyone seemed to know what was to be done and when. And with both Hale and Carrollton’s departments, all the necessary equipment was available to control the fire and clear the smoke. Learning Lesson #8: We need more volunteers who are available during the day. Randall and Ethan (Ethan is under 18 and cannot do everything that our volunteers can do) were the only ones from the Hale fire department on the scene, and Randall had to come all the way from Chillicothe. From the time the call went in, it was probably over 30 minutes before the fire truck got to the scene. It could have well been someone’s home with a much bigger blaze. And nothing could be done but wait until someone out of town could respond even though we have a fire truck right here in town. Thirty minutes is a long time for help. But our volunteers have to work to support their families and no one can fault that. There are usually several volunteers available at night and weekends, but not all emergencies happen at night. This is something each one of us needs to be concerned about and find some sort of solution. Thank goodness this situation did not include a home, loss of life, or the complete destruction of a business. Although Lori probably thinks “what a mess,” it all can be cleaned up and fixed. But one of the many good things about living in a small town is when there is trouble, people come to help in whatever way they can. Just like Keith Berger did. Just like Adam Gilliland did by bringing a fire extinguisher from the bank or thinking to shut off the electricity as Jonathan Locke did. But it’s always a relief to see the arrival of those who have the authority and the equipment to get a job done no matter what type of an emergency! It’s definitely been a “wake up call” for me.

Medicare scam with the new Medicare card, and it’ll be mailed to you for free— you don’t need to take any action to get it. Scammers are hoping that you won’t be informed about the change in Medicare cards and they may try to use the opportunity to get your personal information. Fight back by following these tips: Don’t pay for your new Medicare card. It’s free. If anyone calls and says you need to pay for it, that’s a scam. Never give your Social Security number, bank account number or send cash to anyone who says they need it for you to get your new Medicare card. Don’t give your Medicare number to people you don’t know or haven’t contacted first. Some scammers call pretending to be from Medicare, but Medicare— or someone representing Medicare—will never ask for your personal information for you to get your new Medicare card. Only share your Medicare number with doctors or trusted people in the community who work with Medicare, like your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP).

City aldermen (continued from page 1) John Gillum presented the 2017 audit report to the aldermen for review. Public Works Director Mark Morey reported that South Prospect Street has been chipped and sealed. The chipper ran well and crews will eventually sweep the street for loose gravel. The chipper has cost in total $4,000. Crews plan to chip seal James Street since there is leftover oil. Cold mix was delivered and pothole patching has started. Street crews have been busy working on ditches. The municipal swimming pool is up and running. There was a chlorine issue and the pool had to be closed one day. Minor issues are still being worked out at the water plant. The lime feeder had a clogged pipe that will require routine maintenance now. A backwash cycle got stuck in between cycles. The lime sludge blanket in one of the clarifiers is two feet deep and needs to be 3-3 ½ feet deep. The hardness has been

cut in half and is now 220 mg/L. Crews are still blending the water from one softened clarifier and one unsoftened clarifier. The May transaction report was approved. Bills totalling in the amount of $327,983.70 were approved for payment. The board reviewed the May 2018 Financial Review. The board reviewed Eichler’s bookkeeping review for March and April 2018. An ordinance was approved to authorize the keeping of chickens in residential districts subject to certain requirements. An ordinance was approved adding sections to the city code establishing duties and fees for sexton at the city cemetery. A list of rules and regulations for city owned cemeteries was reviewed by the board. The board decided they were not interested in the MoPEP Solar Communities program. Alderman Whitfield requested an update on the city’s website. Administrator Stonecypher

Hosta plants are made for the shade By Tim Baker, MU Regional Horticulturist

Drummonds celebrate 50th anniversary Jim and Dorothy Drummond of Lone Jack will be married 50 years on June 15. They were married on that date in 1968. They have one son, Jimmy. Jim was born in Gallatin on Aug. 27, 1944, the second son of Donald and Ethel Drummond. He is the grandson of the late Carl and the late Lilly “Grandma” Harris. A champagne toast will be given at the Harris reunion in August.

In my last column, I discussed gardening in shady areas, and mentioned what you must consider when choosing a plant that will tolerate low light. Our guide sheet that I mentioned has many good suggestions. If you have heavy shade, I have always liked hostas, for their ability to tolerate a wide

variety of conditions. Hostas are well known for their beautiful foliage, and some will even reward you with flowers as well.

Members of the Regional Jail Board discussed soliciting housing for sentenced detainees from other agencies at their meeting held May 31. It was previously determined that transport officers would not do transports more than 300 miles from the facility, but Director Ed Howard and Deputy Director Tim Carder requested the restriction be lifted and the board members agreed to the request. All ballistic vests have been received, and are being utilized by the transport officers. Safariland, the company that manufactured the vests, has made several errors in the order, and have sent a duplicate order. Until the corrections have been made, remaining invoices have not been paid. Mr. Carder is working with Ed Roehr and Safariland to get the corrections made. The automatic vehicle location systems have been received, and are currently being installed in transport vehicles. Mr. Howard demonstrated the system to the board members, and advised both sheriff offices would be able to access this system to pinpoint transport vehicle locations. Mr. Carder gave updates on training, stating that all staff has received first aid/CPR training. Some supervisors are scheduled for training in dealing with difficult people in Chillicothe next month, and he and Administrative Assistant Lori Burke will be attending training in Chillicothe next month as well. The jail now has three male and three female transportation officers, and is fully staffed at this time. The jail will be hosting new hire training by the Missouri Sheriffs’ Association at its training center. Four or five new officers are expected at this training.

Mr. Howard discussed the recent administrators’ conference that he and Mr. Carder attended. Mr. Carder was selected as a member on the jail standards board, and will be attending meetings quarterly. The decision on selecting an interim president upon Commissioner Randy Sims’ retirement was tabled until the next board meeting. Mr. Howard then gave the first quarter financial report. The board entered into closed session to consider legal actions, causes of action or litigation involving a public governmental body and any confidential or privileged communications between a public governmental body or its representatives and its attorneys. Mr. Carder gave the financial report which was accepted by the board.

City of Pattonsburg decisions over past 3 months cover emergency landing pad, condition of wells


May 14 Meeting: During the May 14 meeting of the Pattonsburg City Council, Jane Jamis told the board she wanted to move to Pattonsburg. She has a single wide trailer but there are no more lots available in the R-1 Zoning section. She asked permission to put the trailer on any other lot available.

The board agreed to accept a quote from Layne Company and fix the well. Adam Albert wanted to have an awning put over the platform on Well 7 to help keep the electrical panels protected from the sun and rain.

residents know that the city would start cleaning drainage ditches at Highway 69 and Oak and work their way through town. Any issues should be reported to city hall.

Pattonsburg Fire Department wanted to utilize a lot east of city hall for an emergency medical services helicopter landing pad. The lot will also be used as a display building for a 1964 pumper. The board voted to get bids on concrete for a 40x40 pad for a landing zone and for the display building. The city will pay 40 percent of the cost of the landing zone pad. Farmers Electric Cooperative was put on auto-pay. Adam Albert asked the council if he could buy a chain saw to cut all the trees and shrubs on the dike in the old town.

Getting arrested could be the least of your concerns. There are court costs, medical bills, or perhaps jail time. If you kill or injure someone, you’ll pay a price for the rest of your life. The highway is no place for a driver who has been drinking. Alcohol impairs your motor skills and attention. Respect the lives of others. Stay off the highways if you’ve been drinking.

Tri-County buses earn fleet excellence award; poor marks for others Colonel Sandra K. Karsten, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, recently announced the results of the Motor Vehicle Inspection Division’s 2018 annual school bus inspection program. Tri-County R-7 earned the Patrol’s Total Fleet Excellence Award, obtaining an approval rating of 90% or higher with no buses placed out-of-service. Only two Gallatin R-5 buses were initially approved, which meant an 80% defective rate for Gallatin. North Daviess R-3 and Pattonsburg R-2 each had a 50% defective rate. North Daviess and Winston R-6 each had one bus which was rated “out of service.” A total of 26 school buses in Daviess County were inspected by the Patrol. Of all buses inspected, 10 were approved by inspection personnel with no defective items noted during inspection. Buses having one or more defective items which do not con-

stitute an immediate danger are rated as “defective.” There were 14 “defective” buses in the county. Buses rated as “defective” may continue to be operated for the purpose of transporting students until repair is made. School districts are allowed 10 days following initial inspection to repair identified defects before being re-inspected by Highway Patrol motor vehicle inspection personnel. Buses with a defective item which constitutes an immediate danger are rated as “outof-service.” There were two county buses “out-of-service.”

Buses rated as “out-of-service” must be repaired, re-inspected, and placed back into service by Highway Patrol motor vehicle inspection personnel prior to transporting students. Buses not presented for re-inspection within the required 10-day period are reported to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Statewide 2018 annual school bus inspection results are as follows: • Buses rated as “approved” upon initial inspection — 10,888 • Buses rated as “defective” upon initial inspection — 912 • Buses rated as “out-of-ser-

This program is a success because the Highway Patrol, Missouri’s schools, and private pupil transportation companies make transporting students safely a priority,” said Colonel Karsten. “I appreciate the positive and professional working relationship our agency shares with these professionals.”

Harold Hays conducted the services. Four high school seniors from New Hampton, equipped with a 40-foot net of a mesh smaller than the law allows, waded in Grand River at the wrong spot last weekend. Their choice of seining locations was so poor all wound up paying fines in Judge O. O. Mettle’s court here Saturday. As they prepared to make their first drag, they saw a man humped over a fishing pole. In answer to their query, the angler replied he wasn’t having much luck. As one of the seiners waded out, a large catfish grasped firmly in his hand, the fisherman produced a pistol and announced he was conservation agent Wayne Helton. ***** People who fly into a rage always make a bad landing. ~ Will Rogers

He was shooting at 1/5 scale NRA silhouette targets at varying distances between 22 and 55 yards.

May Day! May Day! Too blasted hot! May 2018 is set to go down in history as the warmest on record in Missouri, and perhaps the nation, said University of Missouri Extension climatologist Pat Guinan. Every day in May charted above normal in Missouri, Guinan said. Many days registered more than 10 degrees Fahrenheit above normal, with preliminary data indicating an average statewide May temperature of 73°, almost nine degrees above normal. The 30-year mean temperature for June is 73 degrees. The 2018 temperatures break a record set in 1962. May’s average temperature this year beat the 1962 record by more than one degree, he said. The five warmest Mays in Missouri were in 2018 (73.0), 1962 (71.9), 1896 (70.0), 1987 (69.8) and 2012 (69.5). National Weather Service records date back to 1895. In its weekly Crop Progress and Condition report on May 29, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported temperatures the previous week averaged 75.1 degrees, 8.4 degrees above normal. May’s historic heat follows the second-coldest April on record, which Guinan said is “nothing short of amazing.” Temperatures averaged more than seven degrees below normal in April. Snow events and subfreezing

temperatures were common, he said. “It was one extreme to the other. It is extremely unusual to have this occurrence,” Guinan said. The last such anomaly was from December 1989 (third coldest) to January 1990 (third warmest). Not only was it hot, it was generally dry during May in Missouri, especially across the northern half of the state and a few southwestern counties. Preliminary data indicate a statewide May average precipitation of four inches, more than an inch below normal. Precipitation averaged 1.06 inches statewide last week, 0.09 below normal, according to USDA, with 33 percent of the subsoil moisture short or very short. Long-term drought conditions still affect portions of northern Missouri where surface water supplies are dwindling and subsoil moisture is depleted. Guinan said some communities have imposed water restrictions and 12-month precipitation deficits in some locations have exceeded 16 inches. St. Joseph reported 19.28 inches between June 1, 2017, and May 31, 2018; normal is 35.6 inches. Unless significant precipitation falls soon to recharge surface water supplies and soils, row crop and pasture conditions

will continue to deteriorate, Guinan said. The June outlook from the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center indicates an enhanced likelihood for continued above-normal temperatures in Missouri. The precipitation outlook is more uncertain, with equal chances for above-, below- and near-normal precipitation anticipated for most of the state. June is northern Missouri’s second-wettest month, averaging between 4.5 and 5 inches. Clark County in Northeastern Missouri received the least rainfall in May, according to a Farm Service Agency rain gauge just south of Kahoka, where 0.87 inch was reported. Small pockets of pop-up showers brought little relief to parts of the state. Areas near Nevada, Mo., were exceptions with MU Extension agronomist Pat Miller reporting that five inches of rain fell over Memorial Day weekend. Extension agronomists in northwestern Missouri reported temperatures above 100 degrees in the previous week, with little relief from cooling rains. It was the first time MU Extension’s Graves-Chapple Research Center in Atchison County had seen triple-digit temperatures, according to extension agronomist Wayne Flanary.

Our summer free hot dog ministry continues on Wednesdays throughout the summer at noon -1 p.m. on the south side of the church. Pastor Brad Dush met with many members at the Tipton’s BBQ on Monday eve. Continued prayers for Lois Wood, Janet Diaz and Lori Kloepping. L ake V iking Sunday morning was a special worship service at the Lake Viking Church. The Servants of the Most High sang for most of the service.

Approximately 635 of Lori’s neighbors, family and friends attended the fund raiser

Thank You

L ori and Eric K loepping with their daughter, K ara M cG hee, and K ara’ s two children, K enden and A nnalee.

Life, Love, Hope ...for Lori (continued from page 1) one else was a match for Lori. Transplant chains allow willing donors to give their kidney to whoever is the best medical match — even if that person is not a relative and regardless of where they live. Lori’s transplant surgery is scheduled for Thursday, June 21. Please wear your T-shirts and bracelets on the day of the surgery in support of Lori and Kara, as they go under the knife. Friday’s successful benefit raised over $15,500, thanks to the generosity of so many. The Men’s Club served up a fish dinner to approximately 635 people. Desserts were provided by the Gallatin Baptist Church. Silent auction items brought in over $7,000, and were donated by many, many businesses, individuals, churches and clubs. Additional donations were made by individuals, businesses and churches. The bounce house for the kids was donated by

Adam and Lauren Whitney. The Lions Club donated the use of the building. According to Cyd Terry, chairman of the event, a donation will be made to the Lions who provided the building, electricity, parking lot and most importantly, the air conditioning! The GoFundMe account for online giving, created about nine months ago, has raised about $15,000. Some of that has already been used to meet deductibles and get things set up for the transplant. With the proceeds from Friday night, the Kloeppings will have more than enough to cover the cost for six months worth of an antirejection pill. The cost is $3,950 per month. Show your support for the Kloeppings. T-shirts and bracelets are still available for sale at Terry Implement, $20 for a T-shirt and $3 for a bracelet.

The shirts and bracelets designed for our transplant says it all: where there is love, there is hope. Nine months ago I never dreamed we'd be scheduled for a kidney transplant in June. A host of angels, a loving community, family, church family came together. I was told not to worry about the financial part. We've done this for 32 years, so I thought we could handle this on our own. God definitely had a different plan. We feel so unworthy. I wish I could list each person individually, but I don't want to leave anyone out. Please have patience. I'm working on thank you notes. We appreciate the sweet, kind words, cards, money, the huge fish fry, silent auctions and especially prayers. As a mom, I'm more concerned about our daughter. She is so unselfish - and giving a kidney to a complete stranger, just so I can get one sooner - now, that's love! I'm thankful my parents raised me in such a loving community. We are so blessed.

Thank you and God Bless.

Eric & Lori Kloepping Klint Kloepping Kara & Sean McGhee
