electrical upgrades are complete, with the exception of a couple of spaces that just put in their request for 50 amp upgrades. Mike Booth reported that one of the dumpsters has rusted out on the bottom. Lake Committee: The first inspections of the year have been completed for the roadside and lakeside. There are a few letters to send, but not many. The next inspection will be in the fall. Cemetery Committee: Shad Mort asked if you have loved ones in the Lake Viking Cemetery, to please not put flowers on the ground. Hangers or on top of stones is fine, but on the ground makes it hard to mow and keep everything trimmed. Infraction Committee: Roger Lankford reported 11 tickets were reviewed by the committee. Eight of those tickets were issued fines and three were dismissed. Dredge Committee: Shawn Hepinstall reported the dredge repairs are complete. We have been working on stream bank stabilization in the three tubes area. The plan was to start dredging in three tubes, but now we believe we will hit the Pilot/Pirate area first as there are less docks to move. There are only six in this area, but there are 18 in the three tubes cove that will need to be moved. We are hoping to be able to move to three tubes by September. Shad Mort commented we have hired a new dredge operator, who will be starting next week. Training of the new operator is tentatively scheduled for the 26th of this month. Lake Manager’s Report Campground: As reported earlier in the meeting, the campground electrical upgrade is complete for the most part. There are a couple of 50 amps yet to do. Roads: The maintenance crew has been working on patching the roads. We have laid 50 tons of material so far. Campground lagoons: The lagoons have been dipped out and an inspection was scheduled this week, but has to be rescheduled.

Painting: Maintenance has also been working on painting some guardrails and bathrooms. Dry Conditions: The lake manager is concerned about the dry conditions with the 4th of July approaching. Shad will monitor the conditions closely and if necessary will put a “Burn Ban” in effect and possibly ban members from shooting fireworks. We will post on Facebook and our website if any bans are necessary. Phil Stockard wanted to thank Shad and his crew. He commented on how nice everything around the lake looked. Financials: Troy Lesan moved to approve the financials. Mike Krehbiel seconded; motion carried. Board Action: Refuse Disposal Rule page 39 of the Handbook: Phil Stockard opened a discussion on trash issues that are getting out of hand. He had sent pictures to the board of our dumpsters after the Memorial Day weekend and they were overflowing. Shad Mort commented that we have already spent $1,000 more this year than last year for dumpsters and rolloffs. Phil commented that this is costing all of us, as members, more money. He brought up the fine on page 39 of the current handbook says violators will be fined $100, but in the littering rule and the building rules it is $250. Phil moved to increase the fine from $100 to $250. Susan Zalenski seconded the motion and Phil opened the floor for discussion. Susan asked how we catch the people that are illegally dumping, such as building materials, furniture and everyday household trash from someone not paying for trash service. Also there are people that do not have homes on their lots that are not required to have trash service, but are using the dumpsters. This will be hard to police, but Shad Mort believes the higher the fine the more it will deter people. The building committee is requiring dumpsters or trailers to be set on construction sites now and they have to haul it off the lake. It was suggested that all members be required to pay for trash service whether they have a home or not. Phil would like to take this to the handbook committee and better clarify the rule on trash service. There is a $25 trash permit available to purchase at the Association Office for people that are not paying for regular trash service. Unfortunately there are very few people that purchase these permits. Phil called for the motion at hand. Phil made the motion and Susan seconded. The motion carried. Business Future: Campground Review Group: Phil Stockard would like to put together a campground review group. For years we have had discussions on whether the campground makes money or are we losing money. So, Phil is proposing putting together a small group of people to dig into the finances of the campground and the facts about what they need or don’t need. This group would come back to the board in a couple of months with their findings. Mike Booth has put together a statement of work for this group to work on. Mike discussed three areas that they need to look at, finances, the operations side and the campground rules in the campground. Phil would like to see a board member chair this group and have one member from the finance committee, a member of the strategic committee, a campground member and a non-campground member. Flint Hibler moved to form the Campground Review Group. Mike Krehbiel seconded; motion carried. Adjourn: Susan Zalenski moved to adjourn into executive session at 7:30 p.m. Mike Booth seconded; motion carried. Attendance: Doug & Resa Wiltse, lot 494; Mary Hibler, lot 183; Len Zalenski, lot 364; Don & Carolyn Leeper, lot 22; Roger & Margarite Lankford, lot 644: Bo & Kitty Steed, lot 444; Tony Gronniger, lot 2281; Shawn & Paula Hepinstall, lot 385; Robert Hayes, lot 389; Vern & Ruth Harnapp, lot 165; Shad Mort, Lake Manager; Sally Zerbe, lot 2528/Office.

issouri waterways have become increasingly busy over the past few decades. Along with the increased boat traffic, the size of motorboats continues to grow, particularly on our larger lakes. Where there are boats, there are boat wakes. Please join the Missouri State Highway Patrol in promoting wake courtesy to minimize the danger to others using our waterways, damage to docks, and erosion to our shorelines. Operating a motorboat at “plowing” speed is necessary at times, but should not be the norm. Please make note of these reminders so you are part of the solution and not part of the problem: Operate your boat at idle speed, or when you are safely able to do so, operate on plane. Do not continuously plow unless absolutely necessary. Boats that cause excessive wakes should always operate in the middle of the lake to allow their boat wake time and distance to lose energy. Plowing within cove locations is discouraged, unless safety or water sport activities require you to do so. Water sport activities requiring excessive boat wakes should be reserved for areas of our lakes where the danger to boaters, damage to docks, or significant shoreline erosion is limited. Cruiser and houseboat owners and operators are a significant and important part of our boating communities, but these boat owners and operators require heightened awareness of the wake they are causing. Remember to be courteous. If you were in a small boat attempting to navigate your boat wake, or you owned a dock that has to survive your boat wake, would you be operating in the same manner? Treat other boaters and property owners as you would want to be treated. Causing harm to another person or their property with an excessive boat wake may subject you to enforcement action or civil liability. The great state of Missouri has many beautiful waterways, all of which allow for a wide variety of boating activities. Responsible and courteous boaters help make our waterways safe and enjoyable for everyone’s use. The above is reprinted, with permission, from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Water Patrol Division website. As you can see, the state of Missouri, like Lake Viking, is fighting to prevent damage to docks and shorelines from excessive boat wakes. Although not all applies to LV (houseboats?), courtesy and awareness of your boat wake will help the Association avoid making unnecessary and restrictive boating rules. Help us protect our members’ docks and shorelines. Lake Viking Board of Directors Lake Viking Safety Department SHP-272 3/2016

JUST A REMINDER SPEED CREATING EXCESSIVE WAKE: Trolling speed will be used when approaching within seventy-five (75) feet of boat docks, marina, and coves marked with Association buoys, or other areas marked with permanent or temporary Association buoys.

Attention Dock Owners!! Boat dock wiring must be protected by a ground fault interrupter (GFI). If your dock wiring is not GFI protected an electric accident can occur. You can purchase a GFI electrical tester at any hardware store to see if you are already protected or contact a qualified electrician to install a GFI to protect your dock.

Let’s Talk Trash ! With the onset of summer and the increase in use of the lake, we once again face an issue that seems to confound our community each and every year. Trash. Piles and piles of trash. Overflowing dumpsters. An increased hit to the budget. Attempts over the past several years to bring compliance with trash rules have resulted in a limited degree of success. Often times we work on a rule and while it looks good at the time, we discover as time passes that there may be some confusion or lack of clarity in it and we must return to the drawing board to get it right. At the board meeting Sunday, the issue of trash was yet again a topic. Compared to this time last year the Association has spent $1,000 more this year on hauling trash in dumpsters. For Fiscal Year 2018 trash service was budgeted at $13,000. As of May 31 the Association has spent $4,700.91 or roughly 36% of budgeted funds. Should the trend continue we could easily surpass $16,000 or more for trash service this year. More frequent pickups and over-weight dumpsters cost the Association and the members. This is money that could be better spent on infrastructure and facilities at the lake. The tale was told several times last year on the Lake Viking Facebook page, particularly at Beach 2. In anticipation of a holiday increase in trash, extra dumpsters are brought in. Over the last several years, however, even extra dumpsters cannot seem to keep up with the large amounts of trash. Homeowners (members with developed lots) have a specific rule requiring them to maintain either half-year service or full-year trash service which they pay for in addition to their dues and assessments, so in essence those members are paying for trash service twice. A recent audit of paid trash service was conducted and less than a handful of developed lot owners were not in compliance; however, follow up by the Association with those members resulted in full compliance within days of notification. The Association plans to continue monitoring compliance and will take action as necessary. The rule itself does allow the homeowner (developed lot) on “occasion” to utilize the Association dumpster with paid service. So what is an “occasion?” Originally the intent of the occasion rule was, for example, a homeowner was going out of town and it was going to be 4 or 5 days before the scheduled trash pickup. Rather than leaving a trash can by the road for a week or so, as long as they had that paid service, they could utilize a dumpster for that “occasion.” I will grant you, that it is not clearly defined in the rule.

In addition, new signs have been posted at each dumpster site identifying the proper use of the dumpsters. “Accumulated trash in these areas” does not mean trash from your home or lot. If you have the “occasion” to utilize a dumpster and are in compliance with the rules the dumpsters in the maintenance yard are available for such a purpose.

Private Ramp Recommendation The Board of Directors would like to recommend that all private ramps be chained and locked when not in use by property owner.

www.LakeVikingMo.com By Phil Stockard

Here (below) is a picture from the day after Memorial Day at Beach 2 where an extra dumpster was present in anticipation of the usual holiday overflow. As you can see, even with the additional “roll off” dumpster, it could not all be contained. Does anyone really believe Beach 2 or a community area or “an occasion” produced this much trash?

Because of the holiday, trash pickup was delayed until Tuesday. Six days later on the following Monday here (below) are the two standard bins at Beach 2. This from a normal six days at Beach 2? Doubtful.

Campground trash is another topic. Unless you are a campground member you are prohibited from use of the dumpsters within the campgrounds. Recently, however, general weekly trash in the campgrounds can also be overflowing, as noted in this picture (below) taken on 5-142018. As it was reported in the meeting, often on Sunday afternoons there is almost an ongoing line of cars entering the campgrounds only to place trash in the dumpsters, turn around and leave.

In this picture, yard waste is noted in the dumpster which contributes to the problem of space for household trash, while a grill sits on the ground next to the bins. Campers are reminded that yard waste and metal items such as grills should be taken by the member to the burn area of the maintenance yard or metal bin located next to it. Maintenance is often tasked with the pickup and transportation of such items which takes time away from their other duties. Speaking of the maintenance yard, those dumpsters are not immune. Until recently (several years ago) utilization of the maintenance yard dumpsters was generally restricted to lake clean-up days where maintenance personnel were on hand to help unload and control the flow of items into the yard. Over the past few years that has been somewhat relaxed affording members the opportunity to deliver on their own schedule. Unfortunately that too is now becoming an overwhelming issue. While there has been a noticeable compliance in keeping non-burnable items out of the burn area, which is deeply appreciated, once again with relaxed controls the dumpsters at the maintenance

USE OF DUMPSTERS The Association provides dumpsters for the Beaches, Campgrounds and some Community Areas, for the purpose of accumulated trash in these areas, not day to day household trash. Please DO NOT dump building materials of ANY kind, such as lumber, sheetrock, shingles, etc. in these dumpsters.

yard are now overflowing with a variety of items including a lot of household trash. This is a picture (below) of the maintenance yard dumpsters after Memorial Day and does not include the large dumpster.

Articles regarding the trash issue and ability to purchase cards to utilize the dumpsters have been written over the past few years. Now is the time for what is hopefully a final re-write of the rules, where there is no conflict with other areas of the handbook, and to make sure rules are clearly defined, and that task will be undertaken. In addition several enforcement options were discussed at the Sunday meeting which will be vetted and some implemented. I will not speak to which options and when those options will be instituted. I will take this opportunity, however, to encourage members who are in compliance with having service or have paid the appropriate fee to have their membership card and supporting compliance documents with them when they utilize the dumpsters. On page 39 of the handbook it clearly outlines how “unimproved” lot owners can utilize Association dumpsters by purchasing a card from the office to do so. The cost of the card for over a decade has been $25 for the year which allows the member use of the dumpsters. Unfortunately fewer than five members at its peak have taken advantage of this program, so far three members have this year. Not even a speck considering the amount of unimproved lots (no house) we have at the lake. It is recognized that there is a certain amount of trash and materials brought in from outside of the lake, and there are plans in the works to address that issue with the identification and prosecution of offenders. This article should actually be considered step one in the education process. Clarifying and a rewrite of the rules necessary to address the problem will be step 2, and it will be announced as soon as it is completed so all are aware of the rule changes. I encourage each and every member to obtain the current membership handbook and look at the rules regarding trash disposal while understanding that in the coming months those rules may have some changes. Any changes will be in the monthly paper and posted on other media avenues the lake utilizes. The final step in the educational process (and it will be coming very soon) will most likely be an encounter with the Safety Office resulting in an infraction violation and a meeting with the Infraction Committee. While the Association will continue to investigate other avenues of trash disposal, your cooperation is deeply appreciated. We as members have to step up and become responsible for our own trash control as well as help the Association keep down costs. The Safety Office will do their best to continue to increase monitoring of the areas for non-compliance; however, they cannot do it alone. Any assistance you can provide them would be appreciated. If you are a member in compliance and are stopped by the Safety Office while dumping, understand they are not trying to make your life miserable; they are trying to enforce the rules which in turn will save you money. At the board meeting on Sunday the fine for lot owners utilizing dumpsters without the card or paid for trash service increased from a MINIMUM $100 fine to $250. It’s simple math. Take your chances of getting caught and an infraction ticket with a minimum fine of $250 or spend $25 bucks on the card, maintain paid trash service and not have an issue. It’s your choice.

Have a drink ...

... the water’s fine! By Troy Lesan

You may have noticed on the June water bill, there was a web page address listed that allowed access to our 2017 Annual Water Quality Report for PWSD #3. For those who accessed this report and read it, there was some industry “jargon” and all these initials: ppb for parts per billion, ppm for parts per million, mcl for maximum contaminant level, TTHM for total trihalomethanes – let me assure you the news was good. In category after category, our product, the water that comes out of the faucet, tested well below the maximum contaminant levels. There were no categories in which our water was even close to the maximum allowable contaminant level. Let’s look at some of these categories to get a clearer picture: Nitrates: this is a big one consisting of run-off from fertilizer, leaching from septic tanks, sewage, etc. Without going into detail, I can tell you that in neighboring Iowa, with all of the big corporate farms and feedlots, this is a huge problem. PWSD #3 is in good shape. Maximum allowable contaminant level is 10 parts per billion. The highest tested level for our water product had 0.12 parts per billion. Likewise for Atrazine which is a result of runoff from herbicides used on row crops. Maximum contaminant level allowed is 3 parts ppb. The highest level in our water was .47 ppb. In the past, the biggest challenge for our water district was in the area of “Disinfection Byproducts.” There is a Catch 22 present in regard to water quality; in order to control the various contaminants such as nitrates, Atrazine, and lead (by the way our lead level is way below the MCL as well), it is necessary to introduce chemicals into the processing procedure . . . and then the chemicals also become subject to the testing requirements. For several years, TTHM levels (total trihalomethines) were right at a level of 80 parts per billion. Currently, due to several procedures put in place by Water Plant Manager Roger Barker, that number has been lowered to a very acceptable level of 54 parts per billion. In addition, 2017 featured an additional round of water quality samplings requested by the DNR. These tests were for the purpose of monitoring the poVICE tential presence of e-coli in raw water samplings with a threshold of no more than 100 colonies per sampling. So far, Lake Viking water has passed this test with flying colors. In several of the samplings, presence of e-coli was and/or Excavator, maybe a Viking Man in the corner the (from ZERO. The highest number noted was 8 with several other months showing make a visual link between the two businesses 5, 3, 2, andDEFAULT 1. Again this is-well under the mcl of 100! Do Not Change This File. All in all, the testing numbers our water very favorable. Save to current weekfor folder beforeare altering this ad. Hats off to PWSD #3 Manager Roger Barker and his staff.

By Troy Lesan Several years ago, I wrote a two-part article on a “storied tradition” in local Daviess County High School Basketball lore. The articles were about a power-house team in the 1960s and ‘70s which compiled very impressive records. Year after year the Jameson Huskies regularly won district finals, and they went to the “Final Four” in the state tournament several times. The small town of Jameson, which is less than 20 miles from Lake Viking, was like the “Mouse that Roared.” They were a dynasty of sorts, and known far and wide, for many years, for their prowess on the basketball court. During those years, there was one family that had their fingerprints all over that successful program – the Holleys. Most recently: Larry Holley. Larry’s father served as both superintendent and basketball coach at Jameson and was responsible for the building of the town’s high school gymnasium. Larry’s mother was high school principal. “Mom changed the grades to make me the valedictorian,” Larry once joked. Local legend even has it that Larry had a cousin that once scored 102 points in a girls high school basketball game. This was way back, when girls basketball rules required a jump ball after every basket scored. Larry Holley was a star player on the great Huskie basketball teams. As a first-team “all-state” selection in high school basketball, he went on to play in college basketball at William Jewell where he also lettered in cross country running. As a William Jewell athlete, Larry lettered four times in both sports, was team captain in each sport and William Jewell “Athlete of the Year” in 1967. As it turned out Larry was just getting started in making his mark in college basketball. He went on to become head basketball coach for the William Jewell Cardinals and recently completed his 39th season in that capacity. All totaled, including head coaching positions at Central Methodist (at Fayette, Missouri) and the Northwest Missouri University in Maryville, Larry has coached men’s college basketball for 49 years! In 2018, Larry won the Kansas City Sports Commission “Coach of the Year” award. This was his 15th “Coach of the Year” recognition. During his coaching career at Jewell, he has guided his Cardinal teams to 20-win seasons 25 times! Is it any wonder, therefore, that Larry Holley is number one all time in victories among Missouri four-year college coaches? Not only that, in January, 2018, he became just the 10th person in men’s college basketball history to achieve 900 career victories! Check out the list of the other coaches who have achieved 900 wins: “Coach K,” Mike Krzyzewski of Duke with 1016 victories, Jim Boeheim of Syracuse with 916 victories. (Coaching legends Dean Smith of North Carolina had 879 wins and Adolph Rupp of Kentucky had 876.) It would seem that Coach Larry Holley is in very good company. Impressive achievements for a young man from the tiny town of Jameson. CONGRATULATIONS COACH!

Winston’s Jesse James Days canceled 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 time-honored 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.

Flint & Mary Hibler sporting this year’s Poker Run t-shirts

By Troy Lesan For a while on June 9, the clubhouse parking lot looked like Grand Central Station: two food trucks, the second Saturday open-air market, and last but not least the Second Annual Lake Viking Poker Run. This year’s poker run was bigger – 120 players compared to 87 last year. The event started at noon allowing participants four hours to drive their vehicles – ATVs, UTVs, golf carts and at least one Corvette – to the five different stations to draw cards for their poker hand. Once back at the clubhouse parking lot, they were also able to buy raffle tickets for a half-hog (provided by Chillicothe Locker and to be given away June 30), buy tickets to a 50-50 raffle, a silent auction, and of course see who had the winning hand. By the time the drawings and winning hands were announced, the temperature was in the 90s – again! – but there were some hot hands as well. Winning hand for the $200 first place prize was four jacks held by Greg Coin. Second best hand, good for $120, was a royal flush held by Martin Ray, and Casey Johnson won $75 with an ace high flush. Resa Wiltse won the 50/50 raffle and promptly donated it back to the activities committee. All totaled, this event raised $3,362 and is another great effort by Mary Hibler and her activities committee!

Chapter Eight Written by Carolyn Mueller Illustrated by Christopher Grant

T he Van Arsdale family has many fond

Jim was only with us for 12 years, but in that time he made a huge impact on those around him. You know, I really think that dogs live such a short time for a reason. We don’t need decades, like humans do, to figure everything out. We already know the best way to live. Never waste a day. Always be there for others. Always enjoy good food. Listen to those around you. There is nothing worth more than loyalty and love.

memories of Jim the Wonder Dog. My brother, Son, and I have grown up hearing stories about our incredible father. Now that we’re just a couple of old dogs ourselves, it’s important for us to remember and pass on these true tales so that the legend of our father will never be forgotten.

The city of Marshall, where Jim lived at the Ruff Hotel, continues to celebrate Jim, helping his story to live on many years after his death. Jim’s grave is in Ridge Park Cemetery. He is the only animal with the privilege of being buried there, and people routinely bring treats, dog toys, flowers and coins to honor him. The Ruff Hotel is gone, but in its place lies a beautiful garden, built to honor my father. Visitors can stroll through quiet pathways lined with lovely flowers and bushes and read Jim’s story on sign posts as they go. Every year in May, the city celebrates Wonder Dog Day to commemorate the legend of its “most famous citizen.” Dogs come from near and far to participate in a doggie parade and a Frisbee contest! It’s truly a special day celebrating the life of a very special dog. One question remains to be answered, though. How did he do it? How did Jim understand humans so completely and thoroughly that he could complete any task asked of him, in any language? How did he predict the future? How did he know how to

identify all of those trees? Lots of scientists and inquiring minds have pondered over the years just exactly what animals know, and how they know it. People may never truly be able to understand the animal mind. In his time, Jim was tested. Doubters tried to prove that he was actually just a trained dog, or responding to his owner’s body language, or perhaps simply relying on dumb luck. But the truth is, no human could ever figure out exactly how my father did “his stuff.” And no one ever will. Jim is a mystery to everyone, especially Sam. Sam never tried to explain Jim. His powers were as peculiar to him as they were to any observer. The clumsy, runt of the litter had surpassed everyone’s most basic expectations. Jim changed Sam. Sam had been a man who believed that a dog was an

animal with a job to do, put on this earth simply to help him hunt quail. Sam was always kind and gentle with animals, but in his eyes they were not family or even companions. Dogs were useful for hunting, and that was all that really mattered about them. After Jim though, Sam changed. He saw that dogs might be capable of understanding and communicating in ways he never thought were possible. One look into Jim’s eyes told people that these animals were made of something more. Sam began to appreciate each and every dog as a unique, intelligent being, an animal that could become not just a companion, but family. That’s how Sam treats me, of course. I may not have the powers of my father, but I know that I am respected and loved.

All dogs live as examples for our owners. But Jim went beyond just that. He listened and understood in a way that no dog could ever replicate. His incredible abilities helped to bridge a unique connection and an understanding between dog and human. Maybe no one will ever solve the mystery of his abilities. But we can look back, celebrate and appreciate him for who he was. He was Jim. And he was a Wonder Dog.

Paper training A garden was built to honor Jim the Wonder Dog. In what ways could a person be honored in a newspaper? Can you find an example of someone being honored?

MSHP joins Operation Dry Water for June 29-July 1 weekend Colonel Sandra K. Karsten, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, announces the Patrol’s participation in Operation Dry Water. Operation Dry Water is in its 10th year and Missouri has participated since the program’s inception. This national campaign includes marine law enforcement officers from all 50 states and six U.S. territories. Officers will coordinate special patrols to keep our waterways safe from boaters operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This year, June 29-July 1, 2018 has been designated as Operation Dry Water weekend. “As a partner in this national campaign, troopers will focus their efforts on detecting and apprehending impaired boat operators,” said Col. Karsten. “Consuming alcohol and then operating a vessel puts lives at risk. The Missouri State Highway Patrol joins its Operation Dry Water partners in stressing the importance of being sober when in and around water. Please don’t operate a vessel if you’ve consumed alcohol.” Last year, 628 local, state, and federal agencies

participated in a weekend long event of heightened BWI enforcement known as Operation Dry Water. Officers removed 518 intoxicated boat operators from the water. In addition, law enforcement officers made contact with 243,853 boaters concerning BWI or boating safety enforcement and awareness. In 2017, troopers arrested a total of 15 people statewide for boating while intoxicated, contacted 856 vessels and 2,745 boaters, and issued 146 boating violation summonses and 1,238 warnings on Missouri waterways. Marine operations troopers also issued 86 summonses for non-boating violations during the 2017 Operation Dry Water weekend. Special enforcement operations will continue throughout the summer months. Boaters are reminded that designating a sober operator is always the safest bet if alcohol is going to be included in their boating experience. Operation Dry Water weekend takes place near July Fourth, a holiday known for an increase in alcohol related boating crashes. Boating under the

influence continues to be a leading factor in crashes and deaths on our nation’s waterways according to recently released U.S. Coast Guard Recreational Boating Statistics. Missouri boat operators are reminded that a blood alcohol content of .08% or greater will lead to an arrest for boating while intoxicated. Intoxicated boat operators endanger themselves, their passengers, and other boaters utilizing our many waterways. Boating under the influence applies to drugs as well as alcohol. Even some prescription medications can make operating a recreational vessel unsafe. Alcohol use can impair a boater’s judgment, balance, vision and reaction time. Alcohol use is dangerous for passengers too. Intoxicated passengers can easily slip, fall overboard or suffer other life-threatening accidents. “Troopers will be on the water enforcing Missouri’s laws and protecting those enjoying our lakes and rivers,” said Colonel Karsten. “Missouri is blessed with a variety of water-related recreation opportunities. Floating, swimming, and boating activities should be fun, safe experiences. Please choose to be a sober boater and to always wear a life jacket when you’re on or near the water.”

NFPA underscores electric shock hazards in pools and at marinas during summer months With the start of summer just around the corner, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is reminding people about the potential electrical hazards in swimming pools, hot tubs and spas, on board boats and in the waters surrounding boats, marinas and launch ramps. Electric shock drowning (ESD) happens when faulty wiring sends an electrical current into the water. The current then passes through the body and causes paralysis. When this happens, a person can no longer swim and ultimately drowns. “Most people, including boat and pool owners and swimmers, are not aware of the risks of electric shock drowning,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of Outreach and Advocacy. “NFPA is raising awareness of this troubling trend and sharing our water safety resources so that everyone can safely enjoy summer water activities.” Here are tips for swimmers, pool and boat owners: Tips for swimmers a.. Never swim near a marina, dock or boatyard, or near a boat while it’s running. b.. While in a pool, hot tub or spa, look out for underwater lights that are not working properly, flicker or work intermittently. c.. If you feel a tingling sensation while in a pool, immediately stop swimming in your current direction. Try and swim in a direction where you had not felt the tingling. Exit the water as quickly as possible; avoid using metal ladders or rails. Touching metal may increase the risk of shock. Tips for pool owners a.. If you are putting in a new pool, hot tub or spa, be sure the wiring is performed by an electrician experienced in the special safety requirements for these types of installations.

b.. Have a qualified electrician periodically inspect and — where necessary — replace or upgrade the electrical devices or equipment that keep your pool, spa or hot tub electrically safe. Have the electrician show you how to turn off all power in case of an emergency. c.. Make sure any overhead lines maintain the proper distance over a pool and other structures, such as a diving board. If you have any doubts, contact a qualified electrician or your local utility company to make sure power lines are a safe distance away. Tips for boat owners a.. Avoid entering the water when launching or loading a boat. Docks or boats can leak electricity into the water causing water electrification. b.. Each year, and after a major storm, have the boat’s electrical system inspected and upgraded by a qualified marine electrician to be sure it meets the required codes of your area, including the American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC). Check with the marina owner who can also tell you if the marina’s electrical system has recently been inspected to meet the required codes of your area, including the National Electrical Code® (NEC). c.. Have ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) installed on the boat; use only portable GFCIs or shore power cords (including “Y” adapters) that are “UL-Marine Listed” when using electricity near water. Test GFCIs monthly. NFPA has additional resources for swimmers, boat and pool owners, including tip sheets, checklists and more that can be downloaded and shared. Please visit www.nfpa.org/watersafety. For industry professionals, the 2017 NFPA 70, National Electrical Code® (NEC®) has been revised to improve pool safety and help reduce the

risk of ESD. NFPA has additional codes and standards that apply to boats and marinas and their related electrical safety issues. Find these resources and more by visiting NFPA’s NEC webpage. ********** About the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Founded in 1896, NFPA is a global, nonprofit organization devoted to eliminating death, injury, property and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards. The association delivers information and knowledge through more than 300 consensus codes and standards, research, training, education, outreach and advocacy; and by partnering with others who share an interest in furthering the NFPA mission. For more information visit www.nfpa.org. All NFPA codes and standards can be viewed online for free at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess.

By Tim Baker, Regional Horticulturist 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. A few of these even have a light fragrance. Their remarkable adaptation to shaded areas has made them increasingly popular in recent years. Although some varieties can take full sunlight, most will not thrive there, and their leaves often scorch, bleach or burn. They do well in light to medium shade, and most will even grow under heavy shade. They may not grow as fast in heavy shade, compared to light shade, and they may not flower in heavy shade, but they should grow. When considering a site to plant, keep in mind that hostas like well-drained soils. They will not last long in poorly drained soils. There are many types of hostas available. Some may have short leaves, only three inches long. Others may have leaves ranging up to 10 to 15 inches in length. Common heights may range from eight inches on up to 24 inches. A few specimen hostas even check in at 48 inches tall. Plant widths may range from six inches to several feet in some of those specimen varieties. Leaf patterns vary widely too. Some are solid green. Others may be variegated, with color patterns including blue-green, yellowgreen, green with yellow margins, green with white margins, and yellow-green with dark green margins. Leaves may be broad and rounded or long and narrow. You may see examples of dull, glossy, heavily textured, or ribbed leaves. The varieties that are known for fragrance were developed from the species plantaginea. These plants produce

large, white, lily-like flowers in late August or early September. Hostas are relatively hardy, and many will usually tolerate temperatures down to -10 degrees F. We do occasionally reach temperatures that low in Northwest Missouri, so you may want to mulch them for extra protection. You may plant them in spring or fall, but fall plantings should be protected by mulch.
