Two Years Of Negotiations Come To Fruition

Nestle Gets Offific cial Welcome Trenton’s Nestle plant had its official welcome to the community with a ribbon cutting and program on Tuesday. Around 75 persons attended the event, which was held in the plant meeting room and included remarks from company officials as well as individuals who assisted with efforts to locate Nestle in the former Con-Agra plant on Harris Avenue. Nestle began operations at the Trenton plant in early June after nearly two years of negotiations that eventually led to the company coming here. Among the speakers was Plant Manager Andy Darley, who introduced those speaking at the ceremony and thanked several individuals at the local and state levels who he said were instrumental in working with the company to make the location a reality. He spoke about the importance of economic development and gave special mention to former Trenton Economic Developer Ralph Boots, North Central Missouri Development Alliance Interim Director Phil Tate and NCMDA Director Micah Landes, who Darley said worked “tirelessly” behind the scenes to negotiate the final agreement. Tim Coffman, head of operations with Nestle Professionals, said that the company is “committed to Trenton, committed to the ChefMate product and committed to being a good neighbor.” He thanked those present for their support in getting the plant up and running and said that Nestle was happy to be back in the community. Mrs. Landes and Tate, representing the NCMDA, also spoke, with Mrs. Landes pointing to a “team effort” in getting the work done needed to get Nestle up and running. “There was a lot of hard work done by a lot of people to make this happen,” she said. “And it is a privilege to have Nestle here in Trenton.”

Andy Darley, manager of the Trenton Nestle plant, at left; and Phil Tate, who served as interim director of the North Central Missouri Development Alliance, were among the speakers at Tuesday’s program to officially recognize Nestle’s location in the community. A ribbon cutting was also held, with a photo appearing on page 7 of today’s Republican-Times.

She recognized members of the NCMDA Board along with members of the Grundy County Industrial Development Corporation, the Trenton Area Chamber of Commerce and the county, city and state governments. Tate said that there was a lot of credit to pass around in helping the Nestle relocation happen, noting there was a lot of “behind the scenes” work that went on during the nearly two years of negotiations. “There were so many people in the public and private sectors who believed that it was their job to make their community better,” he said. “Part of economic development is the community. I’ve always said you can’t do economic development until you do community development and that’s what got the job done.” He said that both Grundy County and city of Trenton officials stepped forward to see the project come to fruition, doing what was necessary to assure a successful

outcome. “The county officeholders were remarkable and the county commission was the first one to say ‘what do you need and want to get this done’,” Tate said. “And the city stepped forward with sincerity and a lot of hard work. Every time we needed a vote, we got unanimous support from the council.” He gave special mention to Terry Maglich, the former manager for economic development, who he described as the “go-to person” when it came to work at the state level, and Sharon Schenewerk, who he said did a lot of work to keep this project in front of the right state officials. “The state should be very proud of these two and the work that they do,” he said. “But the real star is Nestle,” Tate concluded. “I had worked with them in the See Nestle, Page 11

Wastewater Treatment Project Moving Forward

Property Rezone Gets Approval Property at the east city limits of Trenton has been rezoned to allow location of commercial business following action taken on Monday night by the Trenton City Council. On a 6-1 vote, the council agreed to rezone the property at 142 E. Fourth St., owned by Scott and Carolyn Forman, who were making the request on behalf of the Overland Group LLC, from R-3 one and two-family dwelling lower density to B-2 commercial business. Dollar General has announced plans to construct a new building at that site, located just west of existing storage units already in that area. Approval came after several minutes of discussion in which two persons, Hunter Treadwell, who owns the home north of where the building is to be located, and Aubrey Kimble, who resides at the same resi-

dence, stated their opposition to the project. Treadwell said he was concerned about safety at the intersection where the entrance to the business is to be located (Highway 6), adding that he did not want a business in “his backyard.” Ms. Kimble said having the business located there would block the view she has from her home and was opposed to having anything located at that site. Councilman William Fisher, who was the lone vote against the rezone, said he was also concerned about the intersection’s safety, especially when school was in session. He noted that there are large trucks that park along the road in that area and obscure the view of drivers. Jay Stauffer, who is developing the project on behalf of Dollar General, said that the company has approval from


the Missouri Department of Transportation for location of the proposed entrance, which is staked off and can be viewed. He said that Dollar General wants to be a good neighbor, adding that privacy fencing is planned to the north of the building that would separate the property from the residential area to which it abuts. He said he would also be willing to place trees along the property line, if needed. Stauffer noted that in addition to the new building, Dollar General plans to leave its current location open as well. That led to a discussion as to whether or not Trenton could support two stores, however, it was noted that it was not the city’s job to make that decision, rather it would be up to the community and their shopping habits. North Central Missouri De-

velopment Alliance Director Micah Landes was at the meeting in support of the zoning and noted that there is already a business in that area (Main Stop) and that the property is located within one and onehalf blocks of the downtown historic district. Voting in favor of the rezoning were Glen Briggs, Larry Porter, Brad Chumbley, Travis Elbert, David Mlika and Jennifer Hottes. Fisher was opposed and Larry Crawford was absent for that vote. Crawford came later and was present for other votes taken. The council voted 7-0, with Crawford absent, to an agreement with Burns and McDonnell to proceed with Phase 2 of wastewater treatment plant improvements, which would include several projects to meet See Council, Page 11

Local Athlete Earns Medals

Ross Represents State At U.S. Games by Diane Lowrey R-T Editor Trenton resident and DAWGS member James Ross experienced a rare opportunity for most Special Olympic athletes as he represented the state of Missouri at the U.S. Special Olympic Games on July 1-6 in Seattle, WA. Ross, who was part of the state’s bocce ball contingent, was one of 58 athletes, 20 coaches and 16 “unified partners� from Missouri who took part in 52 areas of competition. In all, over 3,400 persons from throughout the U.S. were involved in the games. Missouri athletes took part in basketball, bocce, bowling, golf, powerlifting, softball, swimming, tennis and track and field. Ross was one of seven individuals representing the north area of Missouri, which also included athletes from St. Joseph, Savannah, Macon, Kirksville and Maryville. The group met on June 29 in St. Joseph for a local sendoff before being whisked away by limo to Kansas City, where a second sendoff was held before the team departed to their final destination. To participate in the games, all athletes were required to be able to walk at least five miles a day. Ross said he prepared by walking everywhere he went, when feasible, noting he walked many more miles than what was required. Each athlete received a FitBit to track their distance. Coaches were also required to send in reports on each athlete regarding their health - how much water they were drinking, what they were eating, how much exercise they were getting, etc. “They really work on taking care of the athletes and making sure they are in good physical shape,� said Judy Rash, who coaches the DAWGS and helped Ross prepare for the games. “And it was good for us because we did an awful lot of walking while we were there,� Ross said. The first day in Seattle was a time for athletes to do a little touring of the city and Ross took full advantage, getting in as many sights as possible. His favorites

were the Space Needle, where they were able to have a meal later in the week; the Fish Market, where Ross got to see “fish flipping�; SAFECO Park, where he got to see Mike Trout and Albert Pujols play in a game against the Mariners; and the “Gum Wall.� The group also took a boat trip around the harbor. “We crammed in as much as we could before things started,� Ross said. Opening ceremonies were held on Sunday, July 1, at Washington State University and it was there that Ross found himself the subject of an interview by ESPN, who was there covering the games. He talked about his participation in bocce ball and what he liked about the sport. Following lunch, during which time Ross got the chance to visit with Tim Shriver, who’s mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver helped start Special Olympics, athletes made the trek to the university football field for introductions. Ross was chosen to lead the Missouri contingent onto the field, an honor that he took to heart. During those ceremonies, WWE superstars Stephanie McMahon, Mark Henry and Charlotte Flair spoke to the athletes. WWE is a big supporter of the Special Olympic program. “I really enjoyed that,� Ross said.

Monday, July 2 was the first day of competition for the bocce team, which got to play their games indoors on synthetic turf. Ross was involved in singles competition, winning both matches against players from Arkansas and Texas and putting him in the gold medal round on Wednesday. There he fell in an overtime match against a player from Alaska and finished with a silver medal. On Tuesday, Ross and another athlete from Missouri teamed up for standard doubles, where they lost games to teams from Minnesota, Alabama and Indiana, coming away with a sixth place ribbon. Thursday saw Ross paired with a “unified partner� to take on teams from Louisiana and Kansas and losing both matchups. Unified partners are non-Special Olympic athletes who have to qualify and train like the Special Olympic athletes. The team came back to win a third match in overtime against a team from New Jersey and finished with a fifth place ribbon. Ross received all of his awards during “Awards Day,� which was on Friday, July 6. On that day, “Healthy Athlete� screenings were also given, allowing the Special Olympians to be checked for such things as blood pressure, dental needs, flexibility, weight and height, etc. Athletes who participated in at least four screenings qualified to receive a pair of specially-designed shoes from Brooks, which is a Special Olympics sponsor. Closing ceremonies were held on Friday night, which was also a time for athletes to visit and trade souvenirs representing their states. Ross said he was able to get a NIKE cap, a headband from a California athlete and a purple shirt from a Texas athlete. He also got the chance to make his own Coke can (JAR), courtesy of Coca-Cola, another Special Olympic sponsor. Ross returned home on Saturday, July 7, with a welcoming committee meeting the athletes at KCI Airport. “I am so glad I got to go,� Ross said. “I have a lot of good memories.�

Outdoors in the Green Hills Area By Jeff Berti Grundy County Conservation Agent

INSPECT YOUR PONDS Because of the continuing hot weather and periodic cloud cover, pond owners are urged to inspect their ponds on a daily basis. Water temperatures above 90 degrees have recently been reported in a few shallow ponds throughout the area. Unfortunately, the temperature rise has been fairly quick and most fish cannot adjust to these conditions. Therefore, some mortality of weakened fish is inevitable. There have already been a few reports of dead fish floating in Grundy county ponds and lakes. The critical factor right now, however, is oxygen, not temperature. As water warms, its ability to hold oxygen decreases. On the other hand, as the fishĘźs body temperature rises, they require more oxygen. To check to see if your fish are undergoing stress due to low oxygen, you need to go out to your pond in the early morning and check for fish swimming with their heads out of the water or gasping in the shallows. A pondĘźs oxygen level will be lowest just before dawn, because the aquatic plants have not been producing oxygen since the sun went down the night before. On hot, cloudy days, the oxygen level will fall until the sun comes back for the same reason. If you do see fish struggling for oxygen, a quick response is essential. Add fresh, well aerated water or use some method of agitating the surface water to prevent fish deaths. To oxygenate the water you are adding to the pond, spray it into the air, let it run over a series of baffles or let it splash onto a board before it enters the pond. Feeding of fish should be stopped completely until water temperatures return to the low 80's. DonĘźt worry, your fish wonĘźt starve, because by now, they have slowed or stopped feeding anyway. Instead, you will prevent the accumulation of additional uneaten food or waste material which reduces the oxygen in the pond as it decomposes. Treatment of aquatic plants or turbidity is also not recommended until water temperatures drop. The best times to handle these problems are when water temperatures are between 65 and 80 degrees, or when plants are just beginning to grow. If treatments are done right now, no more than 1/5 of the pond should be done at a time with a 14 day interval between treatments. In no way should you do a total pond treatment during hot weather. Although aquatic plants can be a nuisance to anglers or swimmers, they play a vital role in oxygen production in ponds and lakes. By removing plants now, you not only take away their ability to produce oxygen through photosynthesis, you will also cause the dying plants to use oxygen as they decay. Many times, “pond scumâ€? does not create a problem until itĘźs time to cool off after a hot day in the hay field. However, if you can live with the algae do your fish a favor and wait until fall to treat the pond. Predicted rainfall and cooler weather certainly could help to provide oxygen and reduce the temperatures of area ponds. However, the current hot, dry spell could mean trouble for your fish. Make it a practice to check your pond regularly, so you wonĘźt be surprised by a pond full of “floatingâ€? fish.

Putnam County Hospital Audit State Auditor Nicole Galloway has issued a follow-up report of the Putnam County Memorial Hospital in Unionville, which last year uncovered $90 million in inappropriate lab billings. The 2017 audit uncovered a billing scheme in which Putnam County Memorial Hospital billed insurance companies for lab services conducted across the country. The questionable activity began in September 2016 after the Putnam County Hospital Board hired David Byrns and his company, Hospital Partners, Inc., to take over day-to-day management of the hospital. The follow-up report revealed the board terminated the management agreement with Hospital Partners, Inc. as of February 2018. The board continued to pay a company affiliated with Hospital Partners, Inc. for billing services and paid at least 10 other labs for billing and lab management fees through April 2018. More than $20 million went to these companies and their affiliates between July 2017 and the termination of the billing agreement. The 2017 audit also found the hospital was paying the salaries of 33 employees from around the country to conduct lab work. These "employees" were removed from the hospital payroll in October 2017. The board is working with legal counsel to review these payments and determine whether any money can be re-

covered. Putnam County Memorial Hospital remains in poor financial condition, the report stated. The board is working to increase revenues through legitimate lab activity, which includes processing lab specimens for a small hospital in Arkansas. The hospital does not bill insurers directly, but generates revenue through billing the other hospitals for services rendered. The board is working with a consulting firm to review finances and management options and expressed interest in offering substance abuse services to address an ongoing need in the area. After the audit, the board obtained legal representation to ensure adequate review of future contracts. A long-term hospital employee is now serving as the CEO to ensure proper oversight of management activities.

Area Councils Hold Meetings; Discuss Bills, Contracts Water bills and service contracts topped agendas of meetings this week of the Spickard, Princeton and Laredo city councils. Spickard The Spickard City Council met on Monday night, July 9 and took action on one item. According to information provided by Mayor Jesse Richmond, the council voted to give Carolyn Brown a $61.02 credit on her water bill. Mrs. Brown had requested the credit due to a water hydrant in her pasture having been left on by another individual and she was assessed the sewer charge associated with water usage, even though no water was actually used. Richmond said Mrs. Brown had been to the meeting in June to make a similar request, but was turned down. Richmond said that the

council is seeking an individual to fill a vacancy until the April city election. Persons residing in Spickard, who are registered voters and meet all other requirements and would like to be considered are asked to contact city hall, himself or any other council member. The next meeting of the council will be on Monday, Aug. 20.

What Others Are Saying.... Defendants Get Off Easy

A recent Friday morning in the courtroom of presiding Independence Municipal Judge Garry Helm demonstrates as conclusively as anything why Missouri's sweeping 2015 judicial reforms went too far.

Guest Editorials

On the 10 a.m. docket that day were 368 cases. In the audience were — count 'em — seven defendants. Helm had predicted the paltry turnout even before he walked into court that morning. No-shows dominate life in municipal courts these days. New state laws, enacted as a result of the Ferguson uprising, stipulate that Helm can't fine a defendant for missing court for minor traffic violations such as driving without a license. He can't get them tossed in jail. And he can't suspend their licenses. So the word is out: There's no reason to show up for court. And drivers who lack licenses or insurance continue to roam the streets. "It's just really sad," Helm said. "They've taken the teeth out of municipal courts." "They" is the Missouri General Assembly, which meant well when it passed a series of laws that thenGov. Jay Nixon called the most comprehensive municipal court reform bill in state history. They acted after a Justice Department investigation documented enormous problems in east Missouri towns like Ferguson, which essentially ticketed African Americans as a way to to generate enough revenue to operate their cities. The report concluded that officials in those municipalities viewed African Americans "less as constituents to be protected than as potential offenders and sources of revenue." The oppressive brand of law enforcement in those towns amounted to an ongoing abuse of power. Then-state Sen. Eric Schmitt, who's now the state treasurer and was the bill's primary sponsor, said at the time the legislation was intended to address a "breakdown of trust" between people, the government and the court system. The old laws had treated citizens like ATMs. "Healing that," he said, "is something worth fighting for." He was right. That those issues needed to be addressed was obvious. The problem? Lawmakers lumped every city in the state in with the bad actors in the St. Louis suburbs. The result was a vast overreach that created problems where none had existed before, which is exactly what Kansas City Mayor Sly James predicted before Nixon signed one of the bills. Said state Rep. DaRon McGee, a Kansas City Democrat, "We're making Ferguson's problems Kansas City's problems." Among the changes was a lowering of maximum fines to $225 from what used to be $500. The result? Combined with a ban on late fees and warrant fees, revenue flowing into city coffers has dropped dramatically. Add to that some other expenses associated with

the news laws, which included software and personnel requirements, and the result has been the shuttering of small municipal courts and police departments all over western Missouri. They simply couldn't afford to remain open. Among the affected towns are Holt, Platte City, Mosby, Lake Tapawingo, Randolph, Lake Lafayette, Avondale and Napoleon. Cases that would have been handled in those courtrooms are now winding up in associate circuit courts crowding those dockets to overflowing. The change has undermined enforcement in another key area, too: neighborhood nuisances often involving abandoned homes. The Kansas City housing judge now says he no longer has the tools to stop offenders. The state Senate considered but did not pass a bill this year aimed at undoing some of the reforms. Sen. Bob Dixon, a Springfield Republican, said his aim was to start a conversation about solutions. One of Dixon's ideas: If a citizen fails to show up for a court date, a judge could order community service, issue a civil fine or put a hold on a driver's license. He told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he'd heard from mayors across the state that the 2015 law had hurt their cities. "It has removed the ability for municipalities to enforce their ordinances," he said. "We need a different solution." But Schmitt stands by the reforms as the best way to stop cities from abusing citizens via multiple tickets. The message to cities, he said, is: "You need to find another way to generate revenue." Complaints about the new rules amount to sour grapes "from cities who don't like the loss of revenue." Judge Helm likes the idea of imposing penalties for missing court. Too many defendants "just blow us off," he said. "There's no punishment for not showing up to court." To him, public safety is being eroded. "My motto is if you don't want to pay the fine, don't do the crime." In court that Friday morning, Helm gave one man until November to finish paying a fine that was already two years past due. "I can pay it in a week," the man told Helm. The judge thumbed through case envelopes that document defendant after defendant with outstanding fines. One example: Larry Bradley of Independence has been arrested six times for failing to pay a yearsold fine for driving with no insurance. He was never put in jail and once wrote a bad check to pay his $187 fine. "We lost money on that deal," Helm said. Another defendant who didn't show that Friday was Shawanda Brown, who has been arrested four times for a $450 ticket from 2015 for driving with no insurance and driving with a suspended license. She still hasn't paid. "These people just continue to drive," Helm said, "except they don't drive to court." Missouri needs to revisit its 2015 reforms with the

Protect Health, Environment

Swampiest swamp creature Scott Pruitt has resigned as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Now that the weight of 13 investigations into Pruitt's ethical breaches have brought his tenure to an end, a new issue looms. Who should President Donald Trump appoint as the next administrator of the EPA? What qualities should senators look for when Trump asks them to advise and consent to his next pick to head the agency? Pruitt leaves behind more than a history of grift and the costly "cone of silence" installed in his office. He failed to serve the public interest in protecting the environment. Pruitt flatly offered up the agency to the industries it is intended to monitor and regulate. He turned the agency into a booster for energy industries in which he was entangled. For example, Pruitt spent $40,000 on a trip to Morocco to actively promote natural gas exports, taking on a role in which the regulatory agency has no legitimate concern. "The mission of EPA is to protect human health and the environment," according to the agency's website. The next EPA boss should be dedicated to that mission. Despite the Trump administration's focus on deregulation, the nominee should be determined to ensure Americans have clean air, land and water. The nominee should put the public interest above that of industries and corporations. The next administrator must respect science. The agency is actually required to ensure efforts to reduce environmental risks are based on the best available scientific information. Sound policy decisions must be based on the best analysis of data gathered — not on a predetermined political position. Pruitt not only rolled back regulations and purged references to climate change, he also reduced information gathering, including a decision that stopped the collection of methane emissions data from around 15,000 oil and gas operations. The new acting head of the agency, Andrew Wheeler, former EPA deputy administrator, has been touted as a likely successor to Pruitt. He is not the man for the job. Wheeler spent years lobbying for companies that are regulated by the agency. His work for the regulated industries and his time working for anti-environmentalist Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., indicate that he will continue selling our future to polluting industries. If Wheeler is the nominee, the Senate should reject him. Pruitt was an antagonist of the EPA who attempted to gut its protections while wallowing in the worst of Washington's swampiness. Our nation, our president and our Senate must insist the EPA leader be someone who is both ethical and dedicated to protecting America's future. -- Joplin Globe

Mulching Can Help Keep Gardens Cool Mulches can help garden soil stay cool during the heat of summer. Maintain 2-4 inches of an organic mulch to keep the soil cool, says University of Missouri Extension horticulturist David Trinklein. This promotes root growth and curbs soil moisture loss. By blocking sunlight, mulch also prevents weeds from germinating. Finally, organic mulches improve soil structure as they decompose and add nutrients to the soil. Mulch materials include dried grass clippings, shredded leaves, pine needles and ground softwood tree bark. Commercially bagged â&#x20AC;&#x153;wood chipâ&#x20AC;? mulch made from recycled shipping pallets has become popular, but shipping pallets are made from less valuable hardwoods such as cottonwood or sycamore, Trinklein said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wood chip mulches tend to break down more rapidly than softwood mulches such as pine bark or shredded cypress.â&#x20AC;? For best results, Trinklein recommends pine bark or shredded cypress over hardwood mulches, especially for annual flowerbeds. Dried grass clippings also work well.

Gardeners may see problems with nitrogen deficiency when they plant into existing mulched areas. Mulch can fall into the planting holes, where soil microbes will break down organic matter in the mulch, consuming nitrogen in the process. Nitrogen deficiency often results in lighter green leaf color, weak or slow growth, and even yellowing and loss of lower leaves. To counter this, spread a fertilizer high in nitrogen on the soil surface before applying mulch. For established mulch, add more nitrogen fertilizer during the growing season as mulch decomposes. Sour mulch has become a problem in recent years, Trinklein said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, sour mulch is mulch that has decomposed improperly. The result is a foul-smelling mulch that often gives rise to compounds toxic to plants. Symptoms such as leaf scorch, defoliation or death of the plant can result from sour mulch.â&#x20AC;? While sour mulch is not common, hardwood mulches tend to break down more rapidly, which makes them more likely to become sour than softwood mulches. Good mulch should have the aroma of freshly cut wood or good garden soil. Sour

mulches smell of ammonia, sulfur, vinegar or, perhaps, silage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The benefits of mulching greatly outweigh the concern of plant damage from sour mulch,â&#x20AC;? Trinklein said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, be aware of the problem and check mulches before applying.â&#x20AC;? Once mulch is established, it may not be necessary to add new mulch every year. This especially is true in areas where it initially is applied more thickly, such as around trees and shrubs. However, adding a thin layer of new mulch often improves the appearance of the landscape. In most cases, a depth of new mulch equal to the amount of decomposition during the past season is adequate. Mulches help make gardening more sustainable, said Trinklein. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their ability to conserve water, retard weed growth and eventually add nutrients to the soil make their use a logical way to reduce the inputs needed to grow an attractive garden.â&#x20AC;?

Good weather isnĘźt an equal opportunity provider. Some farmers get it. Some donĘźt. ThatĘźs noticeable this year. Farmers and Extension specialists usually report that some get copious rain while some nearby donĘźt get any. That happens not just farm to farm, but state to state. Weather maps show Iowa getting big rains; sometimes too much, while Missouri withers. Northern and Eastern Corn Belt seem to get more uniform rainfall this year. Uneven distribution of rain can make big impact on corn yields. ItĘźs not just rain, but cold, heat and sunshine. Those also affect how crops or grass grow. Beef farms seem hardest hit by MissouriĘźs sporadic drought. A common report on MU Extension crop teleconferences is shortage of grass and hay. Pasture use lasts year around. Corn and soybeans grow in warm seasons. Lack of subsoil moisture cuts yields as well. No water down deep stops corn roots from going deep. Deep roots are needed to bring water up in our annual summer dry spell of July and August. Early on, MissouriĘźs climatologist told us crop water must


come from the sky. ThereĘźs no deep water reservoir waiting this year. For herd owners, drought started last year. With dry weather after the summer slump there was little stockpiling of forage. A few years ago, MU Extension started teaching winter stockpile to help cut feed costs. They tell how to applying some nitrogen fertilizer in August. Even though nothing grows then, the fertilizer waits for fall rains, which usually start Sept. 1. That boosts fall growth, which makes about one third of annual growth for cool-season grasses. Left ungrazed fescue can be grazed in December and January, months usually needing hay feeding. Late grazing cuts use of expensive baled hay for wintering herds. Usually snow doesnĘźt slow cow grazing in winter. They use their noses to plow snow aside to get grass. Cows do the work. One big reason I decided I didnĘźt want to be a farmer was putting baled hay up under a tin-roof hay shed on hot summer days. So, IĘźd favor cows doing the harvesting. This year, drought-shorted fall and winter pastures didnĘźt get a jump start with warm weather in spring. The coldest April weather kept grass from

spring growth. That was followed by the hottest May on record. ThatĘźs not good for grass growth either. Lack of rain slowed the forage recovery. As a result on most farms there was little hay to harvest. Many farmers told of rolling up one-third the number of bales from their hay ground. Hay prices skyrocketed, while beef prices faltered. On top of bad prices comes market volatility from unwise trade wars over tariffs. Those were set without thinking of widespread and unforeseen implications. Farmers are hit hard. Farm products sold abroad offset U.S. trade deficits. ThatĘźs our strength, feeding people. With NAFTA trade, we feed people in Mexico, which almost stopped emigration. Now floods of migrants come from food-poor countries further south. TheyĘźre not in NAFTA. Maybe our president does not know farm economics nor listen to ag economists. The world needs our beef, pork, chicken, corn and soybeans. They pay for quality. No one can make Prime grade beef like Missouri farmers. Our farms grow better soybeans than Brazil, a competitor. For years, MU food and farm economic analysis went to U.S. policy makers. Now with decisions made on emotion and politics not on economics, MU advice goes unheeded. Free trade deals benefit both sides. Ill-formed twitter wars donĘźt. Many farms wonĘźt survive the combo of drought and trade wars. Send farm impact reports to

by Timâ&#x20AC;&#x2C6;Baker Northwest Region Horticulture Specialist SPIDER MITES - PART 2

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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;green upâ&#x20AC;? 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.

Southern Rust Corn Disease Confifirrmed In West-Central MO University of Missouri Extension confirmed the growing seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first case of southern rust corn disease in the U.S. on July 10. The MU Plant Diagnostic Clinic confirmed that southern rust was present in a sample collected from west-central Missouri. This common corn disease usually shows up in neighboring southern states before appearing in Missouri fields, said MU Extension plant pathologist Kaitlyn Bissonnette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year is an exception.â&#x20AC;? Southern rust (Puccinia polysora) is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;tropicalâ&#x20AC;? disease that overwinters in warmer climates. Spores blow north on wind currents into corn-producing states each year. Unusually warm and humid weather across much of Missouri creates the ideal environment for southern rust, which favors temperatures around 80 F and high relative humidity. As the fungus multiplies in the host tissue, raised structures called pustules form. Masses of spores erupt through the leaf tissue. Bissonnette said there are a few things to consider when scouting for and managing this disease. â&#x20AC;˘ Orange to tan circular or oval pustules commonly form in dense clusters on the upper leaf surface. As the season progresses, the pustules can change to brown or black. â&#x20AC;˘ Rust shows first in the

 !"" " 

mid-to-upper plant canopy. It appears initially along field borders or at the ends of rows where spores can easily land on the leaf surfaces. Bissonnette said the proportion of plants affected and severity of the disease are relatively low. â&#x20AC;˘ Southern rust can be easily confused with other leaf diseases of corn such as common rust or Physoderma brown spot. Proper diagnosis helps to avoid unnecessary and costly fungicide applications, Bissonnette said. Management of southern rust depends on the crop stage and environmental conditions, For up to R3 (milk stage), applying a preventative fungicide may be beneficial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, it is important not to apply a fungicide prematurely. Infection in the early R stages can result in more substantial yield losses than in the later R stages,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take note of the current distribution of southern rust in the area, the growth stage of the crop and the environmental conditions. These are the most important factors to consider when making decisions to apply fungicides,â&#x20AC;? Bissonnette said. A map of southern rust distribution is at Because disease pressure is relatively low and there are no other confirmed reports to date of southern rust in Missouri or any other state, exercise caution when making costly management decisions, Bissonnette said.

Written by Annie Lane

Dear Annie: My mother-inlaw is a very good person deep down. She is a joy to be around -- when she's sober. But more and more lately, she is not. And when she's not, she is hateful and vindictive and blames everyone else for her problems. She has gone so far recently as to tell me something happened to my 2-year-old son when she was watching him that would require medical attention -- just to get me to leave work early and pick him up sooner than planned so she could start drinking. Annie, there was nothing wrong at all with my son. Whenever we call her out on her drinking, she spews hateful things at my husband and me. She threatens to cut him out of her will. She brings up things he did decades ago (before he got smart and sobered up and stopped drinking), and she has physically put her hands on me. (This was years ago, before we knew she had a problem; she was very good at hiding it.) She now has the love of a man who is wonderful to her, unlike her former husband of two decades, who cheated 2,800

multiple times on her. But she is even pushing this man away and is hateful toward him when she's drinking. On numerous occasions, we have had to cut her off from seeing our sons because she is choosing drinking over spending time with them and us. Of course, when we do this, we are the ones at fault, and she doesn't have a problem and doesn't need help -- and so on and so forth. I hate what this is doing to my husband, and my sons don't understand why they can't see her sometimes. We have told the eldest one (he's 10) what the real situation is, and it absolutely breaks his heart. Which I guess does actually lead me to a question: Why? Why is the pull to drink so strong that people will mess up perfectly good relationships with friends and family? I understand that it is an addiction, but why can't she and others see what they are missing out on and losing just to fill a void for only a little while? And why does she want to potentially kill herself by drinking so much? Doesn't her future matter to her? I just don't understand, and I guess I never will.

Rarely has one medicine meant as much as Humira does to drugmaker AbbVie. The world’s top-selling drug by revenue st brought in $18.4 billion last year, 65 percent of AbbVie’s sales. Humira e provides even more of the company’s profit, says Credit Suisse analyst Dr. Vamil Divan. Injected just under the skin, the biologic drug treats rheumatoid ven arthritis, psoriasis and seven other immune disorders. That breadth makes it the category’s favorite among insurers and doctors, Divan says. Launched in 2002, Humira’s primary patent expired in 2016. That normally would allow

cheaper competition on the market. But AbbVie got several dozen additional patents approved and won’t face near-copies, called biosimilars, Un until 2023 in the United States. els In Europe and elsewhere, that competition starts in October and should reduce sales by $2 billion in two years, Divan predicts. “The pressures on Humira are underappreciated,” he says. Meanwhile, sales are rising for AbbVie’s new hepatitis C drug and cancer medicine Imbruvica. But Divan thinks other analysts overvalue potential sales of AbbVie’s experimental medicines. He recommends buying shares of Merck or another drugmaker instead.

Immune disorder drug Humira drives AbbVie’s sales and profit. With competition looming, growth will slow, possibly more than analysts’ consensus.

Missouri Department of Natural Resources regulations regarding elimination of sewage bypassing the wastewater treatment plant during wet weather events as well as implementation of disinfection of the discharge into Muddy Creek at the wastewater plant. Work would include construction of an effluent disinfection building and contact basin as well as a pump station that would allow excess lagoon water to be pumped to the contact basin and dispersed once it has been disinfected. In addition, repairs would also be made to an existing sludge holding basin. The work is to be done within 365 days at a cost not to exceed $4.9 million. The city has a DNR-mandated deadline of July 1, 2019 to complete the work. On a vote of 6-2, the council voted to finance purchase of a wheel loader through US Bank Equipment Finance, LLC. The city is financing $104,000 of the total cost over four years at a rate of 4.37 percent. Voting in favor were Briggs, Porter, Elbert, Mlika, Crawford and Ms. Hottes. Against were Fisher and Chumbley. Two related ordinances were approved on a vote of 7-1 with Chumbley opposed. They included the purchase of a new asphalt plant from Asphalt Drum Mixers and financing the purchase through Community First National Bank. The

past and knew that they were a good company that would be a good fit for this community. When you have quality people to work with, I knew we had a chance for a quality outcome.” Special recognition was also given to Serenity Marsh and Jillian Voohies who, along with Lindsay Babcock, started an effort to raise money for ConAgra workers when announcement was made that the local plant was closing. Tate said it is the youth in the community that made the efforts

city plans to make a $700,000 payment out of general revenue funds, with the remainder of the $1.5 million cost being financed over a 15-year period at a rate of 3.99 percent. The council agreed to go ahead and make the first loan payment in October, which would be prior to the plant being installed. Three ordinances received unanimous approval. They include purchase of a 60-foot bucket truck from Altec Industries at a cost of $205,000, an agreement for engineering services from Lamp, Rynearson and Associates for waterline replacements/relocation projects along Ninth Street and an agreement with Lamp, Rynearson for engineering services for rehabilitation of sewers on Normal Street. The Ninth Street project cost will be $23,200 and is being done in preparation for overlay work to be done by the state on Ninth street in 2020. The Normal Street work will cost $34,000 and is being done prior to overlay work planned by the city in that area. The final ordinance was approved on a vote of 5-3 and involved the addition of unlicensed trailers to the list of vehicles that are considered a nuisance if there is more than one located on property. Voting in favor were Briggs, Elbert, Mlika, Crawford and Ms. Hottes. Opposed were Fisher, Porter and Chumbley. The council voted 7-0 to hire a new officer, Michael Wilson of Maryville, and move

one reserve officer to full-time status, Jesse Wills. Wilson began his duties on Tuesday. Wills is a former TPD officer who left the community, then returned and was working for the department as a reserve officer. He is already on duty. That puts the police department at full staff. In other business, the council: • approved the appointment of Mary Axtell, Denny Mathews and Harry Kately to the Building and Nuisance Board. • approved a transformer bid from B&B Transformers at a cost of $7,065. It was the second lowest of three bids received, however, the lowest bid was disqualified as it did not meet specifications. • approved a bid to purchase wood poles from McFarland Cascade at a cost of $10,446. It was the lowest of four bids received. • heard information from TMU Comptroller Rosetta Marsh regarding costs to water yards (requested by Mayor Dr. Nick McHargue). It was estimated that the cost to water for one-half hour (510 gallons of water) would be $4.69. • was invited to attend a meeting on a recent hotel study, scheduled for Wednesday, July 11 at Black Silo Winery. • was told that asphalt sales were ahead of last year, with 3,056 tons sold so far. • received required yearly training from City Attorney Tara Walker.

worthwhile. Both State Rep. Rusty Black and State Sen. Dan Hegeman addressed the group and expressed their thanks for Nestle choosing Trenton to locate. Black noted that the plant impacts the entire area he serves as many persons from outside of Trenton are employed by this company. Hegeman complimented the workforce at the plant and encouraged the community to support the plant as well as all other future economic development efforts. Darley concluded the program by recognizing the employees, who he said led the

effort in getting the plant ready for production in nine weeks. “Something like this would normally take nine months,” Darley said. “But the union and our employees are really the unsung heroes in getting us where we needed to be and to meet that date to begin operations at the plant.” Following the program, a ribbon cutting was held by the Trenton Area Chamber of Commerce and the Trenton Ambassadors. Hy-Vee catered the meal which concluded the activities.

Construction Update Heard The Princeton R-5 School District heard information concerning ongoing construction projects during a meeting on Tuesday night. Superintendent Jerry Girdner reported the Stacy Center will be ready for the start of school, pending the moisture content in the concrete slab to allow flooring to be installed. The football field and track is currently scheduled to be finished before the first day of school, with bleachers arriving this week and taking around one week to install. The press box shell is nearing completion and volunteers are working to finish the inside of the structure. The addition at the elementary school that will house the preschool, band and art programs will not be ready for the start of school, with contractors estimating those areas to be ready in early October. Work is continuing on electrical service for the HVAC units so that the building can be air conditioned while interior finishes are being completed. District administrators and staff are working to finalize plans for the start of school. Girdner said classrooms will be utilized very similar to the format used last year to accommodate students during the final stages of construction. Among action items, the board approved a 3 percent salary increase for administrators for the 2018-19 school year, having approved a $1,000 increase to the certified staff base salary schedule and a 3 percent increase for non-certified full-time staff during a meeting last month. Approval was also given to all student


and staff handbooks for the 2018-19 school year. The board discussed the lease agreement with the Stacy Center Board and Girdner said the two groups are working to update the agreement to accommodate the new addition that is currently under construction. Bids are to be sought for bread, milk and fuel items and will be approved at the August meeting. The audit of the district is to take place on July 23. The board set the tax rate hearing for 5:15 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 20, to be followed by the regular monthly meeting at 5:30 p.m. Following an executive session, the board approved Bill Goodin for the high school special education position as well as the high school girls head basketball coach. Ethan Sticken was approved as the high school boys assistant basketball coach and high school golf coach. John Goodin was approved for field painting at the softball field and Dave McCumber will be the junior high assistant football coach. LOCAL GRAIN PRICES

board on the installation of the new swing set at Moberly as well as a project to address a wash-out area at that park, with the Trenton Street Department recognized for helping with that work. The board plans to move the “curley Q” slide from the upper portion of Moberly Park to Gladys Grimes Park, located at Lake Trenton as well as placing a tire swing there. An older structure at Grimes Park that is leaning will be removed. In discussing playground equipment at Eastside Park, it was noted that a new piece, a bongo jungle climber, will be installed to replace the glider that was removed. The playground will be closed during the installation, which is scheduled to begin Monday and take about three days. In other business, the board: • re-elected officers, including Duane Helmandollar, president; Curtis Crawford, vice-president; and Dr. Andy Cox, secretary.

• heard a report on the recent Mudcats game at Burleigh Grimes Field, which was well attended. • accepted a $3,000 donation from the Dr. Nick and Cheri McHargue family and approved Dr. McHargue’s request to reserve the Rock Barn area for June 15-16, 2019 for the Gooseberry Festival. • heard a report from Shuler that the Trenton Family Aquatic Center season is going great and that the street department and wastewater department helped prepare the grandstand area for the recent fireworks display. Shuler updated the board on the various ball and soccer seasons that have been played over the summer. • heard a suggestion brought to board member Lynda Lynch that the Eastside Park tennis courts be converted to a pickleball court. Helmandollar said the board is looking into grant funding for that project. The next regular meeting is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 1.

Princeton Man Receives Injuries A Princeton man was injured in a three-vehicle accident on Wednesday morning in Harrison County, on Route T east of Bethany. Glen W. Allen, 45, received minor injuries and was taken by private vehicle to the Harrison County Community Hospital in Bethany. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Allen was the driver of a minivan that was eastbound on Highway 136. The patrol said Allen became unconscious and the vehicle traveled off the south side of the roadway, where it struck a truck and SUV parked on the side of the road. Allen’s van then struck a curb and a road sign before becoming airborne. The van then struck the ground, hit a second sign and travelled into a cornfield, where it came to rest. The van received extensive damage. The parked vehicles had minor damage. No owners were listed. The accident was investigated by Cpl. B.R. Hilliard.
