Pictured are Gallatin’s 2018 FCCLA NLC delegates, front row from left, Kyrah Barker and Andon Allen; second row, McKinley Waters, Claire Hemry, and Kylie Row; back row, Aidan Adkison and Brinley Vandiver.

Seven members of Gallatin’s Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) competed with over 4,500 STAR Event participants at a national leadership conference held in Atlanta, GA. Aidan Adkison earned Gold in Interpersonal Communications, Brinley Vandiver and Andon Allen earned Gold in Sports Nutrition, Claire Hemry earned Silver in Interpersonal Communications, Kylie Roe and Kyrah Barker earned Silver in Promote and Publicize FCCLA, and McKinley Waters earned Silver in Teach and Train. The event attracted more than 7,500 FCCLA student leaders, members, and advisers to the Georgia World Congress Center June 28 – July 2. The conference provided Gallatin students opportunities to come together for energized learning while listening to inspiring speakers, expanding leader-

ship skills, sharpening talents, and exploring career pathways. The theme of this year’s conference was “Inspired by FCCLA,” which inspired attendees to make the right choices and commit themselves to making a positive impact within their families, schools, FCCLA, and communities. “Our National Leadership Conference was a great success this year, with a record-setting attendance of over 7,500 members, advisers, partners and guests,” said Sandy Spavone, executive director of the FCCLA. “During the past week we’ve watched thousands of students come together and realize their full potential through competition, career training, and workshops. The relationships developed and training experienced during this conference have empowered students to go into their schools and communities and make a difference, bringing with

them the values and passions FCCLA brings to our members.” During the conference all of Gallatin’s FCCLA delegates participated in one of 30 Family and Consumer Sciences related competitive events offered at NLC, including STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) Events. These events support foundational, leadership, and workplace skills in areas such as advocacy, culinary arts, and entrepreneurship. In addition to conference activities, members had the opportunity to see some of the sights in Atlanta. They were able to tour the College Football Hall of Fame, World of Coke, Georgia Aquarium, and CNN. Additionally, they were able to participate in an Escape Room and a historical segway tour. Also attending were chaperone Mandi Hemry and GHS FCCLA adviser Becky Adkison.

to qualify after competing at the State Leadership Conference in Springfield in April. Student competitive events have topics ranging from accounting to marketing, website development to personal finance. All competitive events are aligned to the standards taught in Missouri classrooms, allowing for an intra-curricular experience to showcase skills taught. Hayley Michael excels Hayley Michael, a 2018 senior at Gallatin R-5 High School, received national recognition at the FBLA Awards of Excellence Program on July 1. Michael competed in Future Business Leader and brought home fifth place and a $100 cash prize. Hayley’s event consisted of a preliminary and final round. For the preliminary round,

Hayley had to submit a resume and cover letter to the president and CEO of FBLA stating why she was deserving of the honor of Future Business Leader; take a 100-question test over the history and bylaws of the FBLA Organization and business knowledge ranging from accounting to law; and participate in a 10-minute interview. From over 150 preliminary participants, the field was narrowed to 15 national finalists which concluded the competition with a 15-minute interview with a panel of judges. Barb Holcomb, Gallatin’s chapter adviser, stated, “In all of the national qualifiers our chapter has had, Hayley Michael is the first Gallatin FBLA member to ever qualify for nationals in Future Business Leader. “This achievement and honor

not only showcased Hayley’s success and dedication to FBLA during high school, it was the perfect way for Hayley to end her FBLA career.” Hayley Michael served as the 2018 Gallatin FBLA Chapter President, 2018 District I FBLA President, and was a two-time Missouri FBLA State Officer. More individual success Briar Roll and Megan Cox also experienced success at nationals as part of Missouri FBLA’s Parliamentary Procedures Team. The team consisted of four of the best parliamentary minds from across the state. Briar led the team, serving as chairman.

performance round based on their success on the 100-question written knowledge test of parliamentary law. Unfortunately, they did not make the top 10; however, making finals on the national level is an honor. Briar and Megan were both national finalists in parliamentary procedures in 2017 and 2018. Gallatin FBLA members also competing in Baltimore were as follows: Zoe Bradford and Karley Salmon in graphic design; Cora Stout and Courtney Shubert in publication design; Addi Stanley, Riley Holmes, and Kelsey Maxwell in business financial plan; Essie Williamson and Maelea Coulson in business plan; Jerilynn Hoover and Kelsey Maxwell in local chapter annual business report; Hayley Michael, Briar Roll, and Cora Stout in communi(continued on page 3)

OPINION It’s gonna be OK by F reida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey. As she pulled out of my driveway this morning I had to murmur to myself, “Freida, everything’s gonna be okay.” For more years than I can recall, Marcellus and her husband made our house a regular stop on their sweet corn route. They’d get up early on the hottest morning in July, climb the fence in front of their house, and commence to picking sweet corn for dozens of us who don’t climb fences. Then they’d spend the day delivering their plastic sacks of the golden stuff around our neighborhood. It’s now the middle of the afternoon but I’ve been passing that sweet smelling stack of kernels all day, and I may not be able to wait until suppertime to introduce them to my microwave. Things change too quickly and of late the rate of change seems to have sped to a dangerous rate as what was true yesterday is but a dim memory today. The last truly welcome change I can remember had something to do with diapers. So it’s more than gratifying, it’s healing, it’s holy to have things pop into our lives that remind us of how things used to be ... spotting a car that looks like your dad’s old Buick, gazing at photographs of family gatherings long gone, and ... sweet corn.

Our family farmers need cool heads on trade by Casey Guernsey

Recently, Canada moved forward with tariffs on $12.5 billion of American products. China is expected to follow suit on Friday by imposing tariffs on another $34 billion of American products — all in response to the U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from other countries. As the owner and operator of a small family farm, this is devastating news. For Missouri, $432 million worth of our state’s exports to Canada alone are threatened by retaliatory tariffs — $881 million in total with other countries — according to a recent study by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. This will have lasting consequences for families and rural communities in Missouri and across our country. Generally, I don’t keep up with the back and forth in Washington. But the uncertainty of trade

and market access has heightened my awareness of the important role our elected leaders have in shaping policy that impacts the agricultural economy. That is why I went to our nation’s capital last week. Family farmers like me rely on free trade agreements to run our businesses, and I want to ensure our voices do not get lost in the debate. I am the seventh generation of my family to farm in Harrison County. I am fighting to keep it that way for generations to come, but restricting our ability to export homegrown goods across the globe will make it much more difficult. On our farm, we sell bulls to other operators so they can introduce them to their herds and improve their quality. However, if politicians restrict relationships with our trading partners across the globe, my customers will sell less beef. When my custom-

When tariffs are imposed on our trading partners, they retaliate — and farmers are usually the first to find themselves in the crosshairs.

Choosing a Supreme Court judge by Congressman Sam Graves

In just the last few weeks, we’ve seen landmark decisions come down from the court on important freedoms including religious liberty, national security, the right to life, and the right to privacy, among others. President Trump’s appointment last year of Neil Gorsuch to the high court was a critical one as many of these decisions were close. At the end of the court’s session last week, longtime Justice Anthony Kennedy, a fair-minded justice who was nominated by President Ronald Reagan and served on the court for 30 years, announced his retirement. Justice Kennedy served our country well, and we wish him the best. This is a monumental opportunity for President Trump to nominate another constitutional conservative to the court who will uphold the rule of law and make decisions based on the direction our founders had in mind for this country. They didn’t put the Constitution in place so Su-

preme Court Justices could ignore it. No doubt many more landmark decisions will be made in the next few years. It is critically important that the President nominate a highly qualified individual for the seat. It is just as important that the Senate ignore the hysteria that is surrounding the retirement of Justice Kennedy and move quickly on the nomination. I’m sure that this process will be contentious and the outrage machine that has been operating for the last year

Editor’s note: Casey Guernsey is a seventh-generation farmer from Harrison County, former Missouri state legislator (who represented Daviess and other counties) and former chairman of the Agri-Business Committee. He is also a spokesperson for the trade policy group Americans for Farmers and Families. This opinion orginally appeared in the Kansas City Star.

Reactions to Supreme Court nominee The following summarizes two statements following President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy: U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D): “I look forward to thoroughly examining Judge Kavanaugh’s record in the coming weeks as the Senate considers his nomination to replace Justice Kennedy.” Congressman Sam Graves (R): “Judge Kavanaugh’s commitment to uphold the Constitution, conservative values, and his reputation as a brilliant jurist make him an excellent choice. I am confident that he will serve with distinction and I urge the Senate to act swiftly to confirm him to the Supreme Court.”

Maddison Michael, Karley Salmon, and Zoe Bradford served as local chapter voting delegates. While at the conference, Hayley Michael was also recognized for being selected as Who’s Who in Missouri FBLA and for earning the highest award given to FBLA members, the America Award. Outside of the conference, chapter members were able to take in many sites in the Baltimore/DC area. The trip began

industry has grown to support 43 million jobs, and has helped American farmers export more than $44 billion to our neighbors to the north and south in just one year. When President Donald Trump took office and signed tax reform into law, farmers were optimistic that the tides were about to turn in rural America’s favor. While there’s unease around recent trade policy, I am confident that the Missouri delegation can effectively lead efforts in Congress, along with Trump and his administration, to ensure farmers like me can continue selling our homegrown goods to consumers across the globe. I’ve seen just how much free trade policies can help small, family-owned farms build a thriving business, and I hope my story will help ensure our course on trade with Mexico and Canada is preserved and strengthened.

Garden Club visits farmer’s market

Spider mites like hot and dry weather MU

B y T im B ak er, R egional H ortic ul turist

In my last column, I mentioned that spider mites were already becoming a problem for some growers. The hot and dry weather has favored their rapid development, and commercial growers and gardeners should be watching for their damage. When I was in Southeast Missouri, I saw spider mite damage in watermelons almost every year. Sometimes, the mites were caught in time. Other times, their feeding was devastating. Occasionally, watermelon fields could show significant damage, but still recover. I remember one field in particular that was very hard hit, and I told the grower that he should spray a miticide immediately, or he would run the risk of losing his crop. Fortunately, that field was caught in time. The grower applied a miticide that day. The mites were stopped, and by the next week, the field was starting to “green up” again. Another grower was not so fortunate. I had previously showed him how to identify spider mites, so he knew what to look for. I was driving by one of his fields one day, and the plants were totally dead. So I stopped by his house

to see what had happened. It turned out that the previous Friday, he had found the mites starting. Unfortunately, he could not find any miticide locally to spray. So he sprayed an insecticide that was labeled for mites, in addition to insects. This may have killed some mites, but it also killed the beneficial insects that were helping to control the mites. Unfortunately, the spider mites recovered before the beneficial insects did. By the time I saw the field, early the next week, the plants were gone. It can happen that quickly, given the proper conditions. So a dedicated miticide is critical. These products are specifically targeted toward mites, and are not supposed to harm beneficial insects, including bees, when used as directed. Good coverage is critical to successful mite control. Spider mites feed on the lower surfaces of leaves, and it is important to get your spray up under the leaves where it can contact the mites. If you suspect that you may have spider mites in your crop, and would like help identifying them, please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Counterfeit bills passed, tips to spot At least one counterfeit $100 bill has been passed at a local business in the past few days, according to the Trenton Police Department. If you are handling cash, be diligent as to its authenticity. The following are some tips on spotting a counterfeit bill. *Color-shifting ink: If you hold the new series bill (except the $5 note) and tilt it back and forth, please observe the numeral in the lower right hand corner as its color shifts from green to black and back. *Watermark: Hold the bill up to a light to view the watermark in an unprinted space to the right of the portrait. The watermark can be seen from both sides of the bill since it is not printed on the bill but is imbedded in the paper. *Security Thread: Hold the bill to a light to view the security thread. You will see a thin imbedded strip running from top to bottom on the face of a banknote. In the $10 and $50 bills the security strip is located to the right

of the portrait, and in the $5, $20 and $100 bills, it is located just to the left of the portrait. *Ultraviolet Glow: If the bill is held up to an ultraviolet light, the $5 bill glows blue; the $10 bill glows orange, the $20 bill glows green, the $50 bill glows yellow, and the $100 bill glows red – if they are authentic! *Micro printing: There are minute micro printing on the security threads: the $5 bill has “USA FIVE” written on the thread; the $10 bill has “USA TEN” written on the thread; the $20 bill has “USA TWENTY” written on the thread; the $50 bill has “USA 50” written on the thread; and the $100 bill has the words “USA 100” written on the security thread. Micro printing can be found around the portrait as well as on the security threads. *Fine Line Printing Patterns: Very fine lines have been added behind the portrait and on the reverse side scene to make it harder to reproduce.

The Gallatin Garden Club met with Louise Taylor for their May meeting at her home. Her flower of the month is the many red geranium hanging baskets on her patio. The club members car pooled to the Jamesport Farmers Market. It was a sight to see so many beautiful blooming flowers and many early spring vegetables for sale. All had lunch together at Country Cupboard. We were sorry Beverly Terrill was having rehab after a fall and could not attend. The club held its June meeting at the Lake Viking home of Jean Caldwell. The flower of the month for Jean’s yard was the lilies in her yard. Two planters with flowers were placed at the Daviess County Squirrel Cage Jail. Members were appointed to select the Yard of the Month for July. Jean gave a program on vegetable gardens, beginning with a community garden in 1565.

He said in the 1940s, "I moved to Jamesport from Poosey and found myself in need of a job.” Bob served seven customers on a paper route and sold popcorn at the Jameson Picnic. He then became a cashier at the Bank of Gallatin and advanced to president. He continued his career as chief of distribution of MAC Pneumatic Corporation, then as operating officer of Palmer Hills Retirement Village in Bettendorf, IA, and lastly, as an officer at Home Exchange Bank of Jamesport. The focus of his work ethic always led to love of family, friends and service. Generations of family have grown and benefited from his quiet confidence and praise. He shared his passion of fishing and hunting with his entire family, especially Rick. Family man, businessman, and service leader, he will be missed mostly as Dad, Grandpa, Uncle Bob and Red. Bob was preceded in death by parents; his wife, Geraldine; sister, Annie Allen; and brother, Jerry. Bob is survived by his son, Rick, and daughter-in-law, Bonnie; sister, Shirley May; grandchildren, Natosha Jackson, Tiffiny Haffner, Megan Snidow, Zach Mills, and Jamie Gordon; seven greatgrandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. ai O it

Winston alum Bailey Curtis combines sports, marine biology in far off Australia

Half a world away from her Winston, Missouri, home, Bailey Jo Curtis is in hot pursuit of her life’s ambition. Curtis, a 2015 graduate of Winston High School and daughter of Lawrence and Sheila Curtis, is attending James Cook University in Townsville, Queensland, Australia, while studying to be a marine biologist. Bailey Jo recently suited up as team captain for the JCU women’s basketball team that participated in last week’s national competition at the Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Center. Formerly known as the Australian University Games, the 2018 Nationals is Australia’s largest annual multi-sport competi-

tion and attracts around 7,000 university students each year across 41 universities. The Australian nationals are held under the auspices of UniSport Australia, which is a similar version of the United States’ NCAA. National university competitions are held in July for 14 sports, including basketball, and in September for 19 other sports. This was the first year James Cook University entered a women’s basketball team in the competition. The team finished third in Pool A and ended up placing eighth overall out of 20 teams. Unfortunately, Bailey Jo, who also participates in rugby, suffered injuries while playing in last week’s tournament, includ-

ing a torn ligament in her left foot. Bailey Jo attended Northwest Missouri State University after graduating from WHS, with the idea of transferring to a university offering a top-notch marine biology program. James Cook University was a perfect fit. She plans to graduate in November of 2019. “Bailey Jo eats, sleeps and breathes sports…and sharks,” Sheila says. “Basketball and sharks have always been her thing,” she adds.

Craig Lewis and USA Jr. Men secure world playoff spot The USA Junior Men’s Softball team evened its record at 2-2 on Tuesday with a 3-0 victory over Guatemala and in doing so secured a spot in the playoff round of the Junior Men’s World Softball Championship being held in Prince Albert, Canada. Winston graduate Craig Lewis, son of Eric and Deanna Lewis, has played multiple positions for USA so far, including pitcher, third base and designated hitter. Playing third base in a 10-3 loss to #2 seeded Canada, Lewis had one hit and scored a run. He pitched four innings of relief during an 11-1 USA loss to #1 ranked New Zealand. The #6 ranked USA squad bounced back with an 11-1 win on Monday over #17 Hong Kong. Lewis served as DH during Tuesday’s 3-0 team victory over Guatemala. Team USA takes on #7 Czech Republic on Thursday.

Church of Christ,


y astor Steve llison

God created us as creatures of sight. We are bound by time and space. We need pictures, stories, visual aids. We need God to open our eyes to physical truth so that we can see spiritual reality. I do not believe that God created things and then later revisited those creations when He decided He wanted to illustrate something. It seems to me that God created objects and processes specifically to illustrate spiritual realities. The spiritual reality existed in the mind of God, and then He created the physical picture to illustrate that spiritual reality. The Father is pictured by fathers. The King is pictured by kings. Sheep picture God’s people. Gold pictures spiritual riches. Thirst illustrates spiritual thirst. Water pictures spiritual refreshment. Food illustrates spiritual satisfaction. Wind pictures the Holy Spirit. Chaff pictures the unrighteous. The tree planted by the water pictures the righteous. God created a world in which everywhere we turn our heads we see a spiritual lesson. In the soil we see the hearts of men. In the vine, we see a picture of abiding and fruit bearing. The sun reminds us of spiritual Light. Darkness reminds us of separation from God. Milk pictures spiritual food for the new believer. Meat pictures solid food for the mature believer. Wine illustrates joy. Yeast illustrates sin. When we see weeds our thoughts should turn to the fact that spiritual counterfeits abound. When we experience marital intimacy we should marvel at the mysterious union between Christ and His church. Salt should remind us of the purifying, healing power of the gospel. Jesus told us to consider the flowers and the birds. Even though Creation is cursed, it is still groaning out the story of Redemption. These pictures, these physical illustrations of spiritual truths cause believers with eyes to see and ears to hear to love life in all of its mystery and grandeur. The Old Testament is full of pictures which illustrate spiritual truth. The Tabernacle, the Temple, the Holy Place, and the Holy of Holies are all full of spiritual truth. The Egyptian slavery and the Babylonian Captivity picture spiritual truth. The Red Heifer and the Scapegoat, the crossing of the Red Sea and the crossing of the Jordan River are vivid illustrations of spiritual truth. The Passover and all the festivals, the Sabbath and the Year of Jubilee, manna and water from the rock all point us to powerful spiritual truths. The list goes on and on and on. Eating and drinking is perhaps the most ordinary and mundane of all illustrations. Every person in every culture in every age has done it. If you do not, we will be having your funeral soon. What we eat was once alive. It had to die in order for us to live. It seems to me that Jesus poured an eternity’s worth of Light onto this picture of eating and drinking in the Upper Room at the Last Supper. The bread they were about to eat was once alive as grain on a stalk. It suffered a violent end. It was ripped from the stalk and ground into dust so that it could be made into bread. The wine they were about to drink was once a grape alive on a vine. It too suffered a violent death. It was ripped from the vine and all its life-blood was squeezed from it. As believers in Christ, in the Lord’s Supper, we ceremonially remember Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. That is right and good, but I think Christ intended more. I think He intends for us to remember this marvelous truth each time we eat or drink. The most repetitious picture of life reminds us that we can live because Someone died, not because of any guilt of His, but because of my guilt.

There’s somethin’ about an

Amish Auction

A gathering of the community

...where proceeds benefit Spring Hill Amish School, Jamesport

If you check the license plates of the vehicles parked at the annual two-day Spring Hill Amish School Consignment Auction, you’ll see that bargain hunters have driven from as far away as Texas and California. These “English,” as the Amish call outsiders, come for the sale, but no doubt they are also there to absorb the culture of the Amish community.

...selling washing machines It’s not every day you can find yourself surrounded by such a large gathering of Amish folk, many who have also come from out-of-state. The Amish men dress in typical blue or gray trousers and suspenders and straw hats, and the women in solidcolored dresses and bonnet-style head covers. The children have a lot of fun, racing around on big horses or riding in small wagons drawn by ponies or mini horses. The auction was held July 4-5 on a farm located about a mile west of Jamesport on Highway NN. Household, stoves, washing machines, glassware, antiques and collectibles sold the first day. Horses, buggies, wagons, saddles, harness and machinery sold the second. Rows and rows of miscellaneous were auctioned off on both days. Multiple auction lines ran simultaneously to handle the vast amount of merchandise. All proceeds went to benefit the Spring Hill Amish School. [staff Photos/TLH]
