NOTICE: Annual Meeting rescheduled to Sunday, March 24 On March 3, the Board of Directors determined that extreme weather conditions, along with the Missouri Department of Transportation no travel advisory, constituted emergency conditions for travel and safety. The Board feels that the safety of our members is always paramount and therefore took the unusual step to exercise its authority in accordance with Article VII Section 1 of the Viking Valley Bylaws, “The Board of Directors shall have control of the affairs of the Corporation,” and cancelled the 2019 Annual Meeting that was scheduled. In addition, given the importance of the Annual Meeting, a quorum of the board met in an emergency session at the office to discuss the rescheduling of the meeting as well as other specific requirements that must be met so as to provide proper notice and as little disruption to the operations and budget process of the lake. This was necessary as the Annual Meeting, unlike a monthly meeting, determines the budget for the lake as well as the board election process. The board met to consider all of these requirements and determined that the meeting will be held on March 24, 2019, at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse.

There will be no rescheduling of that meeting. Members desiring to attend the meeting should take the appropriate measures as necessary for the forecasted elements of the day. In addition, in order to meet budgetary and billing deadlines with the shortened time frame, the Association Office will be closed from March 25 through March 29 to allow staff to complete necessary assignments that were furloughed due to the meeting reschedule. There will be no walk-in availability and members should be aware that phone calls and emails will not be immediately answered and should expect a delay in those areas. Your understanding in this matter is appreciated. On a personal note, an opportunity has presented itself to me which will take me away from the Lake Viking Community. It was my intent to officially resign my board position upon completion of the Annual Meeting on March 3; however, in light of current circumstances my resignation will be delayed until the adjournment of the Annual Meeting on March 24, 2019. Phil Stockard Board President

Join the month-long March for Meals celebration! The Gallatin Active Aging Resource Center announced recently that it will be participating in the 17th annual March for Meals — a month-long, nationwide celebration of Meal on Wheels and our senior neighbors who rely on the vital service to remain healthy and independent at home. The Active Aging Resource Center’s celebration will include various activities throughout the month of March, including a community luncheon. “The services we provide are a lifeline for older adults of Daviess County and the need keeps increasing,” said Deanna Lewis, administrator of the Active Aging Resource Center. “Together, we can keep our older neighbors well-nourished, feeling safer, and more connected to our community as they age. We have served Meals on Wheels and

provided an adult dining experience in Daviess County since 1974 and served almost 20,000 meals last fiscal year.” The annual March for Meals celebration commemorates the historic day in March of 1972 when President Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act of 1965 to include a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older. Since 2002, community-based Meals on Wheels programs from across the country have joined forces for the annual awareness campaign to celebrate this successful public-private partnership and garner the support needed to fill the gap between the seniors served and those still in need. “The month of March is a fitting time to not

only celebrate the successful history of Meals on Wheels, but also bring us together to support a solution that will strengthen communities into the future,” said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO of Meals on Wheels America. “With 12,000 Americans turning 60 each day, now is the time to invest in these vital programs so that we can provide every senior in need with the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that will enable them to live healthier and independent in their own homes.” For more information on how you can support March for Meals at the Active Aging Resource Center, please contact Deanna Lewis at 660-663-2828.

Board Candidate JAMES FUNK - LOT 2904 Current career setting: General Manager – Office Depot Number of years an Association Member: 7 years Previous VVA Board or committee service: Current Board Member, Campground Additional personal or family data: Married to Gina for 12 years. We have 6 children and 4 grandchildren. What qualities of Lake Viking led you to become a property owner? We loved the lakes location and the comforts that is showed us. The scenery and the peacefulness of the lake were very inviting. Describe aspects of your background that uniquely prepare you for Board service: I’m currently serving on the VVA Board. I believe that this last year has been a great learning experience. It has been eye opening to the behind the scenes working of the lake. What do you feel is the greatest challenge facing our Association? I feel the funding of the sediment structure is the greatest challenge we have in our future. What are the top two issues you want the Board to focus on? We need to stay focused on the long term prosperity of the lake and we need to be prepared for any unforeseen future expenses. Describe your vision for Lake Viking: I believe that the direction of the lake is headed in the right direction. Looking for ways to cut expenses and increase our revenue by thinking outside the box. This will keep the lake running for the future generations.

Windstream Holdings Inc., a rural telecommunications company which serves Gallatin and many other area towns, filed for bankruptcy protection on Feb. 25. The bankruptcy announcement came days after the rural telecom service provider lost a legal battle against Aurelius Capital Management over a spinoff of its network assets into a real estate investment trust. Aurelius, a Windstream bond holder, accused the company of violating its bond covenant when it spun off its copper wire and fiber cable business into a new company in 2015. A U.S. district court on Feb. 15 agreed, and ruled in Aurelius’ favor. Judge Jesse Furman of the Federal District Court in Manhattan ruled that Windstream had violated bond covenants when it spun off its fiber-optic cable business into a new company called Uniti Group. Windstream was hit with a $310 million judg-

ment in a legal loss to the capital management firm. The bankruptcy filing will allow the company to continue to operate while reorganizing its finances. “The Board of Directors and management team determined that filing for voluntary Chapter 11 protection is a necessary step to address the financial impact of (the) decision,” Chief Executive Officer Tony Thomas said. The company listed assets in the range of $10 billion to $50 billion and liabilities in the range of $10 billion to $50 billion. With the approval of the bankruptcy court, Windstream plans to continue pay employees and maintaining services and vendor relationships. Citigroup (C) has committed $1 billion in debtorin-possession financing to help the company continue operating.

Development in Gallatin pharmacy situation After the recent announcement of two new pharmacies planning to open in Gallatin, one of the parties, Dungy’s Market, has now announced that they will not pursue the location of a pharmacy in their grocery store. According to Jeremy and Rikki Dungy, they decided to withdraw from the quest for a pharmacy in their store after they learned that Mackenzie Morrison, who had been employed at the Shopko pharmacy in Gallatin for 10 years, was planning to open a pharmacy at the old Casey’s location. The Dungys said in their Facebook announcement, “We want Mackenzie Morrison any new pharmacy to be successful. Because there is another option for a phar-

macy in Gallatin, we talked to the company considering putting the pharmacy in our store, and jointly we have decided it is in the best interest of the community to not have a pharmacy in our supermarket as previously stated. We wish the very best to Main Street Medical Pharmacy, Mackenzie Morrison and her family. We will continue to serve you as your local hometown grocers and thank you for your continued support and patronage.” The Shopko pharmacy closed Feb. 11, and the Shopko store, which is currently being liquidated, will close in May, due to bankruptcy proceedings.

Another big season for Winston boys basketball By Troy Lesan On March 1, the Winston boys basketball team closed out another winning season. Coming into that game, their record was a very impressive 26-0. Yep, that’s right – undefeated so far for the season. Unfortunately, when the evening game was over, the Redbirds’ season was also over. They were defeated in the State District Finals by the Jefferson High Eagles of Conception. The Winston Redbirds had a polished and seasoned team with four seniors: Jacob Lewis, Cy Uthe, Ross Nelson, and Tyler Turner. Going back four years, to when those four boys were freshmen, the Redbirds’ record in boys basketball was an astounding 105 wins and 6 losses. Few teams – high school, college or professional – can boast of that kind of a run. All totaled, the Redbirds have won the HDC Conference basketball championship for the past 6 seasons . . . and four district championships. As usual, the Redbirds breezed through their 2018-2019 regular season by running roughshod over the opposition. Offensively, the team was led by the twin scoring threat of Jacob Lewis and Cy Uthe. Uthe had several games in which he scored 30 points or more and Lewis had scoring nights in excess of 40 points. Those totals alone are enough when you play the Redbird smothering defense. When I say defense, I’m not kidding. The defense was the showcase for the excellent coaching of Eric Lewis and the tremendous discipline of team play that was exhibited. Out of the 27 games the Redbirds played, the opposition scored over 40

points in only five of those games. And remember, we’re talking basketball here. During the season the Redbirds won by such lopsided scores as 76-17, 73-30, 73-26, and 78-35. That may have been the Redbirds’ biggest problem during the year. As I look down the list of their resounding wins, it doesn’t even look like they were seriously tested. And of course Winston fans all know what happens when district competition comes. The teams get a whole lot tougher. In two of the past five years, the teams that ended Winston’s seasons were the Class One State Champions, and in 2019, who knows? It may happen again. The team that beat Winston, Jefferson of Conception is a basketball powerhouse in their own right. The Eagles have won three state championships under Coach Tim Jermain – back to back – and have also garnered one second place and two thirds in state competition. This year’s Eagles team featured height – which Winston does not have. Chase Farnan, the 6’6” Eagles forward, blocked a bunch of shots, while 6’2” forward Clayton Merrigan took control with clutch scoring as the game progressed. And as the game momentum picked up for Jefferson, a couple of their sharp shooting guards made three pointers that were the final nails in the coffin for Winston. Final score: Jefferson 55, Winston 39 ... but what an amazing run it has been for the Redbirds boys basketball team. I repeat: 105 wins and 6 losses, for the past four years, is a level of performance that very few teams ever achieve. Congratulations to the Winston Redbirds boys basketball team. They are winners and, more importantly, an outstanding group of young men.

Jacob Lewis is a big scorer and a floor leader

Lifesaving benefits of smoke alarms Almost three out of five home fire deaths resulted from fires with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms A recent report from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) confirms the importance of having working smoke alarms in your home. According to the NFPA report, almost three out of five home fire deaths happened in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. “We can’t underscore enough how critical it is to have properly installed and operating smoke alarms. The early warning from a smoke alarm provides precious time to get out and can be the difference between life and death,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of Outreach and Advocacy. Carli added that this is important in that you could have as little as two minutes to escape. “Modern construction and furnishings in homes burn faster and hotter, making seconds count.” The report further stated that the risk of dying in reported home structure fires is 54 percent lower in homes with working smoke alarms than in homes with no alarms or none that worked. Smoke alarm safety tips: a. A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. c. Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. d. Test all smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working. Current alarms on the market employ different types of technology including multisensing, which could include smoke and carbon monoxide combined.

f. People who are hard-of-hearing or deaf can use special alarms. These alarms have strobe lights and bed shakers.

Hy-Strung takes second at national tractor pull Hy-Strung Motorsports of Gallatin took second at the 2019 Championship Tractor Pull at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, KY, on Feb. 16, culminating the best season that they have had since they began competing. The Louisville event, according to Brice Terry, is possibly the most prestigious indoor pull in the nation. “If you ever win at Louisville, you’ve really done something,” Brice says. There were five sessions at the show, each with several classes, and each class had 12 tractors competing. Contestants are chosen by a committee after making application to the show. Brice and the Hy-Strung crew competed on weekends throughout the summer. Hy-Strung won the Pro Pulling League (PPL) Western Series Championship for the season, which was from May through September. Out of six PPL events, Hy-Strung earned two first place finishes, two seconds, one third, and was disqualified once for running out of bounds. They also won the National Champions Tour at Wheatland, MO, on Sept. 14, and competed in the Outlaw Pulling Association, winning pulls at Macon, MO, the Missouri State Fair, and both nights at Wisner, NE. Out of the 12 pulls they attended this past summer, they took first place at seven events. Hy-Strung is in the 6400-lb. lightweight super stock class. It is a custom made component tractor, with an ag block, a tractor hood, and a component chassis. It has 3 turbochargers and runs on methanol (alcohol) fuel making in excess of 4000 horsepower. Throughout their summer competitions, Brice and his son Tayton alternated driving, but Brice was the driver at this event. Hy-Strung fans who attended included Brice’s wife Cydney, daughter Tannah, Shelby Lager, and the Hy-Strung crew which consists of Bryan Conner and Danny Clevenger. Brice has been competing in tractor pulls off and on for nearly 40 years. Tayton has been pulling since he was 10 years old. You can watch the winning pulls on Brice and/or Cyd’s Facebook pages or the team’s page Hy-Strung Motorsports.

On March 30 and 31, thirty-one North Missourians will tell the story of how Martha Canary grew into the ‘real’ Calamity Jane during a Calamity Jane docudrama to be filmed and performed on the Mercer High School stage. Performances will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday; 7 p.m. on Saturday; and 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. Fourteen scenes explain how she became a legend and who she really was. Some folks think she was a wild woman, some think she was a drunk; but most admit ignorance ... especially teenagers. That’s why the March 29 show will be performed free for students. Local historians, Bob Kauffman and Donna Covey, believe there is more that should be told about this famous pioneer who got her start in a log cabin in Mercer County. With the advice of Professor Richard Etulain, Kauffman has written a docudrama about the ‘real’ Calamity Jane, and it will be performed on stage by Covey and 30 friends to help preserve and perpetuate this history on a DVD by MasterVideo of Trenton. The goal is to add a significant chapter in Mercer County’s history. Calamity had a tragic life and it was filled with disasters. Articles written often got it wrong, or only half right. They weren’t concerned about how she helped sick and injured folks who needed help finding their next meal. It was those wild wanderings, raising hell, riding horses, shooting pistols and being thrown in jail that helped sell newspapers. Ed Wheeler of Philadelphia read the stories in the western newspapers and made Calamity his heroine in dime novels. She became the side-kick of fictitious Deadwood Dick. That’s how Calamity Jane got to be famous ... not because of her humanitarianism but because she had an ‘exciting’ reputation. Because of this, they called her the ‘Plain Jane of the Prairies’ and named her ‘Calamity Jane’. The name stuck. This docudrama doesn’t ignore her wearing men’s clothing, swearing, chewing, smoking, drinking, hell raising, getting thrown in jail and being a prostitute. But, it will include some of the reasons for these erratic ways. It explains why she was illiterate and will introduce you to her terrible parents. Those who attend will learn of the dangerous trip when the Canary family moved from Princeton to Montana, and how Martha became an orphan at age 11, having to take care of her four younger siblings. Calamity was an industrious ranch and railroad worker, an excellent marksman, a competent driver of mule and oxen teams, and a proficient horseback rider when such activities were considered scandalous for women. Although illiterate, what’s even more remarkable was her ability to tell stories to large audiences. She had a book prepared about her life, most of which was not true but helped her make money. Her talents, virtues and traits were considered equal to if not superior to those of men. If you attend the docudrama you’ll receive a copy of her autobiography that includes a song summarizing her life. Calamity had two children. Her son ‘Little Calamity’ died in infancy but daughter Jessie grew to adulthood. Liquor was Calamity Jane’s downfall and at age 47 she died near Deadwood, SD, and was buried next to “Wild Bill” Hickok. Come see how this pioneer demonstrated independence, and continually overcame difficulties during her short life. Perhaps she should have been called ‘Miraculous Martha’ because of her difficult childhood and living alone in such a harsh, unsettled land.

‘Spring Aboard’ the 2019 boating season!

About ... ... your Trash Service Just a reminder to all members with dwellings or commercial buildings, you must pay for trash service to the trash removal company providing the service. Full time residents will pay for 12 months of trash service and weekend or part-time residents will pay for 6 months of trash service (April 1 thru September 30.) If you need the phone number for our trash service, please contact the association office, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. for more information @ 660-663-2131. Anyone setting trash out prior to pickup day must have trash in a container with a closeable / sealable lid. (This was adopted, by motion, at the Board of Directors meeting on August 10, 2008.)

Lieutenant Colonel Eric T. Olson, acting superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, announces the Patrol will participate in the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators’ (NASBLA) Spring Aboard campaign. Developed by NASBLA, and produced under a grant administered by the U.S. Coast Guard, the annual Spring Aboard campaign informs and motivates boaters to prepare for the boating season by providing information on how to enroll in a boater education course. The campaign emphasizes enrollment in approved courses which meet the national boating educational standard. “Missouri’s many rivers and lakes offer a variety of boating opportunities,” said Lt. Col. Olson. “Please do your part: Spring Aboard and take a boating safety class. Join us in our mission to promote safety on our waterways.” The Spring Aboard campaign encourages boaters to register for a certified boating educational course during the week of March 17-23, 2019. Forty-nine states and U.S. territories require some form of boater education. Missouri law requires everyone born after Jan. 1, 1984, who operates a vessel on Missouri lakes

to possess a certified boating safety education card and photo ID. This includes personal watercraft operators. Boaters have the opportunity to sign up for a certified course in a classroom or take an online course by visiting the Patrol’s website at https:// www.mshp.dps.missouri.gov/WP02Web/app/safetyEdClasses. The classroom courses provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol are free, but registration is required and the boater ID card costs $15. U.S. Coast Guard statistics indicate that of the boating crashes where the level of operator education was known, 80.6% of boating deaths occurred on boats where the boat operator had never received boating education instruction. In contrast, only 19.4% of deaths occurred on vessels where the operator possessed a nationally-approved boating safety education certificate. Watercraft operators must consider the effect their actions have on others. Share the waterway and use common sense, good judgment, and courtesy to ensure the safety of all. Life jackets save lives. Wear It!!

Making up snow days

It’s been a hard winter for area schools. Students may enjoy an occasional break for snow days, but sooner or later they have to make up the missed days. Here’s a look at the rules and circumstances which impact ways for making up snow days. ● Currently, public schools are required to be in session for a minimum of 174 days or 1,044 hours a year. ● Every school day missed must be made up until the seventh day. At that point, one day must be made up for every two days missed until 14 days are missed. After the 14th day, no more days are required to be made up. ● Gallatin R-5 School has missed 10 days so far. So it must make up eight of those days. ● Gallatin has already made up two days: Martin Luther King Day and President’s Day. That leaves six days to go. School will be in session on March 4, which was an in-service day; and April 18 and April 22, which were part of Easter break. The rest of the make-up days will be tagged on to the end of the calendar. “We don’t intend to take away Parent Teacher Conference on March 22 or Good Friday on April 19,” says Dr. Copple. “Students need a break for spring.” If the weather doesn’t cooperate and still more days are missed, those will also be tagged on the end of the school year. Summer school may be pushed back a week and shortened a couple of days. Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, a new law changes the requirement to a minimum of 1,044 hours of actual pupil attendance with no minimum number of required school days except for kindergarten pupils who shall be provided a minimum of 522 hours of actual pupil attendance with no minimum number of days. The new law will allow more flexibility for schools. They may choose to add minutes or hours to the school day. “The new law will allow more local district control,” said Dr. Copple.

Two new pharmacies to open soon came from one of Gallatin’s oldest businesses – D.H. Davis Drug Company, established in 1855. Davis Drug anchored Gallatin’s business community for over 150 years at its location on the east side of the business square, the building now housing Moon Mullins Family Pool Hall. Davis Drug was owned and operated for five generations by one of the county’s pioneer and foremost families, the descendants of Baalis Davis. Pill Box Pharmacy owner Jim Sears sold his interests to Davis Drug which, at the time, was owned and operated by pharmacist Wayne Culver. In 2007 Mr. Culver continued offering his

services locally by joining Pamida Pharmacy, the predecessor to Shopko Pharmacy. For the past 12 years, Gallatin residents have patronized only one local pharmacy. Legal paperwork and proper designations are important steps for the opening of any new pharmacy. As this edition goes to press, it is not yet known when either new pharmacy will open for business. Speculation as to what will happen to the Shopko building after the store closes on May 5 is just that – speculation. Shopko is the Green Bay, Wisconsin-based retailer which filed for a courtsupervised financial restructur-

(continued from page 1)

ing under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in January. The Shopko store in Gallatin was one of over 251 Shopko stores located throughout the U.S. which are being liquidated. These stores are located in Wisconsin, Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Iowa, Washington, Utah, Michigan, Idaho, Oregon, Texas, Nevada, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Arizona. Liquidation at the Gallatin store began on Feb. 8. Other stores in Missouri that are closing are at Trenton, Albany, and Carrollton.
