NECAC To Host Public Meeting The not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) will host a public hearing on its annual plan that is to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for funding the Section 8 Housing Rent-Assistance Program for residents of 11 counties. The affected counties are Lewis, Lincoln, Macon, Marion, Monroe, Montgomery, Pike, Ralls, Randolph, Shelby and Warren, and are known as the LCPHA 11-County Joint Housing Commission. The 11-member commission is made up of one county commissioner from each county, and all serve on the NECAC Board of Directors. The hearing is 10 a.m., Tuesday, May 20, at the agency’s Community Services Department Building next to the NECAC Pike County Service Center at 805 Business Highway 61 North in Bowling Green. The annual plan and public hearing are part of the contract requirements NECAC has with HUD and the commission, and describe NECAC’s administration of the Section 8 program. NECAC has been contracting with HUD and the commission for more than 35 years to operate the program. NECAC also has a separate contract with HUD and the St. Charles County government to administer the Section 8 program in that county. The HUD Section 8 rent-assistance program allows NECAC to make full or partial monthly rent-subsidy payments di-

rectly to participating private landlords on behalf of the income-qualifying families and individuals. The tenant then pays the remaining balance of the rent directly to the landlord on a monthly basis. Only houses, apartments and mobile homes that meet standards for safety, cleanliness and affordability set by HUD Housing Quality Standards (HQS) and local city and county zoning ordinances may be approved for the program. After signing up for the program, applicants who meet the federal income and other guidelines will be put on a waiting list. When their names reach the top of the list, applicants will receive permission to search for an apartment, house or mobile home. The applicant will then have 60 days to find a rental unit, which is then inspected by NECAC and must pass HUD and local standards. Applicants may use their current places of residence if their landlords agree to participate in the program and the rental unit passes inspection. NECAC provides the qualified applicants with a list of all local landlords who participate in the program. The qualified applicants are responsible for making landlord contact, applying for and signing an annual lease. Participating landlords receive the guaranteed monthly rent portion payment from NECAC and keep and maintain control of their properties. They may continue to advertise their rental units on the open market for the general public until a lease is signed. The landlord is re-

sponsible for checking references and doing background checks and may reject an applicant based upon their findings. The landlords are responsible for providing an annual lease and may also, with proper legal notice, evict tenants who do not follow the terms of the lease. Qualifying Section 8 tenants pay approximately 30 percent of their income towards rent and utilities directly to the landlord on a monthly basis. The actual amount of the rent payment subsidy depends upon the individual or family income, size of family and the unit selected. Preference will be given to families who live or work in the 11 counties. Proof of residency must be provided at the time of application. Acceptable forms of proof are Social Security/SSI award letter, check stubs, current bank statement or utility bills. The agency administers more than 2,600 Section 8 vouchers in its service area. NECAC is a 12-county area not-forprofit social service, community health and public housing Community Action Agency headquartered in Bowling Green, with client service centers operated in each county. NECAC is one of 19 nonprofit Community Action Agencies in Missouri and part of a national network of more than 1,000 independent agencies. For more information, call the appropriate NECAC County Service Center or the NECAC Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program in Bowling Green toll free at 1-866-552-5560.

With Great Appreciation I would like to thank my family and friends for a very memorable day; one I will never forget. Thanks for all the cards and gifts. A special thanks to my family for their efforts to make my 90th birthday such a success. Thanks again Wayne Maples

Announces Sign-Up Date for Disaster Assistance Programs U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan M. Garcia announced that farmers and ranchers can sign-up for disaster assistance programs, reestablished and strengthened by the 2014 Farm Bill, beginning April 15, 2014. “President Obama and Secretary Vilsack made it a priority to begin enrollment for these programs,” said Garcia. “For farmers and ranchers who have been awaiting disaster assistance, help is on the way.” The Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) and the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) will provide payments to eligible producers for livestock deaths and grazing losses

that have occurred since the expiration of the livestock disaster assistance programs in 2011, and including calendar years 2012, 2013, and 2014. Enrollment also begins on April 15 for producers with losses covered by the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees, and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP) and the Tree Assistance Program (TAP) in 2011, when the programs expired, through 2014. “Missouri’s producers have encountered several extreme weather conditions over the past few years, from a historic drought, to flooding, to extreme cold and snow,” said Mark Cadle, state executive director for Missouri FSA. “These programs will

7:00 a.m. 8:30 a.m. 9:30 a.m. 10:30 a.m

help our producers recover from these disasters and help sustain Missouri’s livestock industry.” LIP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who have suffered livestock death losses in excess of normal mortality due to adverse weather and attacks by animals reintroduced into the wild by the federal government or protected by federal law. LFP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who have suffered grazing losses due to drought or fire. ELAP provides emergency assistance to eligible producers of livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish who have losses due to disease, adverse weather, or other conditions, such as wildfires. TAP pro-

Adults: $8 Children (6-12): $4

vides financial assistance to qualifying orchardists and nursery tree growers to replant or rehabilitate eligible trees, bushes and vines damaged by natural disasters. “To expedite applications, all producers who experienced losses are encouraged to bring records documenting those losses to their local FSA county office,” said Cadle. Producers also are encouraged to contact their county office ahead of time to schedule an appointment. For more information, producers are encouraged to review the 2014 Farm Bill Fact Sheet, check out the LIP, LFP, ELAP and TAP fact sheets online at or visit any USDA Service Center.

Free Skin Cancer Screenings Offered Free skin cancer screenings will be offered to the public on Thursday, May 1 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Blessing Health Center. The screenings will be conducted in the Dermatology Suite 221 at 927 Broadway. Appointments are required by calling toll free, 877-411-2468, or by going online at The free skin cancer screenings consist of an examination by dermatologist, Dr. Louis Quintero. The screening is spon-

sored by the Blessing Cancer Center with Blessing Physician Services. No biopsy or other invasive procedures will be done during the screening. Minors cannot be screened without a parent or guardian present. Materials will also be available about prevention and early detection. Most skin cancers are caused by too much exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, but some may come from artificial sources such as tanning beds. It is impossible to avoid

sunlight, but there are precautions that can limit one’s exposure to UV rays. Limit direct sun exposure during the middle of the day when the UV rays are most intense- usually between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. When in the sun, wear clothing and a hat to protect as much skin as possible. Use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher; apply 20 minutes before sun exposure and reapply every two hours. Be sure that the sunscreen protects against both ul-

traviolet A and ultraviolet B rays. Wear wrap-around sunglasses that block UV rays. Research has shown that long hours in the sun without eye protection increases the chances of developing eye disease. Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps.

Letter to Editor The word “sustainability� can be linked to a lot of our local activities these days—whether it’s reusing or recycling products that otherwise might be tossed out, shopping locally at our farmers markets and area small businesses right here in Lewis County, or making a commitment to buy American-made products. Needless to say, there are a lot of ways to go local and build a more sustainable world. While all of this is great, have you thought about what these activities mean for our local economy, right here in Lewis County? Have you also thought about how your banking activities might also help our local economy? If not, I’m hoping to add yet another buzzword to your lexicon—it’s called economic sustainability. You might be asking exactly what this means. As President of Bank of Monticello, this is a cause I’m dedicated to each and every day. By employing local residents and lending to local small businesses, farmers, ranchers and residents, the Bank of Monticello and other community banks are building a more economically sustainable community right here in Lewis County—and community banks nationwide are doing the same. It’s all part of a symbiotic relationship that community banks have with their communities—they take in local deposits and put them to productive use by lending that money back into the local economic ecosystem to local small businesses, local

farmers, and to local residents just like you. That’s why this April, which is ICBA Community Banking Month, I encourage all local residents and small business owners to consider what it means to go local from an economic point of view and how to support economic sustainability by banking with a community bank. Banking locally makes an impact both at the micro and macro levels. Take for instance the fact that there are almost 7,000 community banks with more than 50,000 locations throughout the United States. Community banks, which are locally operated—and many of them locally owned—constitute 96.8 percent of all banks with assets that may range from less than $10 million to $10 billion or more. Community banks with less than $10 billion in assets provide nearly 60 percent of all small business loans under $1 million and more than 75 percent of all commercial bank agricultural loans. That’s no small potatoes when it comes to lending. Community banks are only successful if our customers and communities are too. That’s why the community bank and its relationship business model have thrived for over 100 years. We know what it takes to create successful local economies— join us in helping to build a more sustainable, vibrant economy here at home. Virgil Welker President, Bank of Monticello

In Canton the water is up to Fourth Street and is over the road so that rravel on Highway 61 toward Quincy is impassable. The railroad there is under water and trains have been annulled for the last two or three days. At LaGrange the situation is very grave and some of the streets along the highway are under water. Highway No. 6 will be finished to Lewistown in 1929. This is the promise given by the Highway Commission in letters received in his community.

I agree with Alan Musser, grandfather of Natalie the care was great but seeing a small body with tubes all over, bandages, machines that beeped and whooshes was still a scary sight. A classmate Gavin Meyers was in the room next door so they and the families could cheer each other. I hear Natalie returned home over the week end. Get well all of you. Phyllis Heindselman attended a 90th birthday celebration in Lewistown for Jerry Fast. On Tuesday she got together with Elaine Jamison, Trudie Stahl and Georgia Richter for lunch in Canton.

He had dog treats in his shirt pocket and his dog did not want to wait for Nick to pass them out and they got tangled up, Nick fell on a brick and cut his head. Only two stitches but quite a bit of blood.

DeCoster golfing for Grinnell College

Canton Varsity Baseball Win On Thursday, April 10, the Canton baseball team claimed a victory against Unity. Canton scored 11 runs against Unity’s 1 run. Logan Brown of Canton had 3 RBI’s. Canton won against South

Shelby 21 to1. Tyler Niemann went 2 for 3 with a home run and 4 RBI's. The Canton Tigers won the Madison Hardball Classic on April 12.

Canton R-V Baseball Team

The Canton Tigers defeated Community R-VI in the first game 10-0 in five innings and then won the championship with a convincing 21-9 win over the host Madison Panthers on April 12, at the Madison Hardball Classic. ROCKNE DECOSTER

The Grinnell College men’s golf team put together another successful round on the final day of the Prairie Fire Classic, firing a score of 319 at Gibson Woods Golf Course. Rockne DeCoster, class of ‘15 led the way for Grinnell with a 6-over-par 77, giving him two rounds in the 70s for the tourney as he had an overall score of

156. That tied him for 15th place. “Things just continue to improve with this golf team,” said Grinnell coach Brian Jaworski . “Every day we were down in Arizona, things got a little better and we were fired up about how we competed against a very strong Pima squad. Now, this weekend is here and the one

player (Rockne) on our team who we know was disappointed with how he played against Pima … he comes right back and fires two scores in the 70’s in our next event, just missing out on his first top 10 finish. That is impressive and done with a team-first mentality.

Canton R-V Baseball Seniors

A Win for Highland Baseball Highland Varsity Baseball left the diamond victorious after a 10-8 run game against Clark County on Thursday, April 10. Cody Martin, of Highland, scored a game changing 2-run single in the 6th inning which put the Cougars in the lead where they remained for rest of the game.

Highland faced Payson on April 11 losing that game 13-2. The Cougars won first place in the Knox County tournament with a 12-8 win over Marion County. Ryan Waterman went 3 for 4 with 2 RBI’s and Jonathon Boyer had 3 RBI’s.

The Canton Baseball team has several senior players. The Canton Tigers won the Madison Hardball Classic this past weekend.
