Culver-Stockton holds memorial for student The Culver-Stockton College community is deeply saddened to announce the passing of Anton Kozelichki, a senior business education major from Alexis, Ill. He passed away Thursday morning at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Ill. Memorial services and visitation were held Sunday, April 27, at United Senior High School in Monmouth, Ill. A memorial was planned on the Culver-Stockton campus April 29 in the Charles Field House. The Kozelichki family was to be present at the memorial. Kozelichki was very involved in the community, working with the Canton school as an education major. He was an avid athletics fan, and was involved with the College’s radio broadcasting. A prayer gathering was held Thursday evening on campus for students, faculty and staff. Kozelichki

was an amazing leader who left a lasting impact on the Culver-Stockton College community. Dr. Chris Gill, dean of students said, “With Anton’s passing, the Culver-Stockton family has lost one of its cherished and active members. His death has impacted us all but it is his life and big heart that has transformed this campus. He was a passionate supporter of our athletic department, where he played football his freshman year and then did radio broadcasts after he couldn’t play anymore,” said Dr. Chris Gill, dean of students. “Anton always looked to give back to others. Above all he loved this school on the hill. His heart and soul were blue and white and it showed in his character and warm smile. He will be forever remembered.” An obituary for Anton Kozelichki is on page 4B of this edition.

LOCAL NEWS NECAC observes golden anniversary of Community Action Month For 50 years, the not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) has offered a helping hand to people in need in Lewis County. The Lewis County Commission recently signed a proclamation designating May as NECAC Community Action Month. The declaration coincides with National Community Action Month. NECAC is joining the 18 other Community Action Agencies in Missouri and a network of more than 1,000 across the nation in the observance. NECAC is a 12-county area not-forprofit social service, community health and public housing Community Action Agency that serves the low-income, elderly, youth, disabled and disadvantaged. The agency’s Central Administration Offices are located in Bowling Green, with NECAC Service Centers operated in each county. NECAC delivers more than 60 programs to qualifying clients and earns its revenues through contracts and grants with federal, state and local governments, private businesses and other non-profit organizations. The agency has 110 fulltime and more than 200 part-time employees, and currently operates a budget of more than $25 million. NECAC President and Chief Executive Officer Don Patrick said Community Action programs and services have helped improve the lives of thousands of people in the agency’s 12 counties. “We are pleased to join Community Action Agencies across the United States in observing five decades of helping people and changing lives,” Patrick said. “This is a time when we can highlight the important social service, community health and public housing programs that we administer and deliver to those who

need our services.” “It’s important to recognize that without Community Action, many of the neediest among us would not get the services they need to improve their lives,” said NECAC Lewis County Service Coordinator Judy Eaton. “We provide temporary assistance to our neighbors in need, helping them to become self-sufficient to build better lives.” Common Community Action programs include employment and training services, housing rent-assistance, energy assistance, home ownership, home weatherization and repairs, affordable housing, senior and family apartment developments, family planning health services, in-home senior care services, volunteer programs for seniors, and county outreach programs. NECAC and other Community Action Agencies were born from the Economic Opportunity Act, which was passed by Congress and signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964. The idea was to put local agencies in charge of directing resources and funding to the people and programs that needed them the most. Changes later were made to make sure there was broad representation on the boards of Community Action Agencies. NECAC is governed by a 36-member volunteer Board of Directors with three representatives from each of the 12 counties. The Board consists of one Public Elected Official (PEO) representative, one Civic Interest Representative (CIR) and one Low-Income Representative (LIR) from each county. Lyndon Bode, Presiding Commissioner of Marion County, is the Chairman of the Board and serves as the Marion County PEO. Serving on the NECAC Board from

NECAC to open waiting list for rent-assistance Plan The not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) has announced it will open its waiting list and take applications for a housing rent-assistance program in 11 Northeast Missouri counties. Applications for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Section 8 Housing Rent-Assistance Program will be taken starting at 8 a.m. May 12 at and at NECAC County Service Centers. 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 housing commission is made up of one county commissioner from each county, and all serve on the NECAC Board of Directors.


The waiting list opening also applies to Cuivre Township of Vandalia and Farber. Applicants in those areas will apply in Pike County. NECAC is a 12-county area not-for-profit social service, community health and public housing Community Action Agency that administers and operates programs for the lowincome, elderly, youth, handicapped and disadvantaged through partnerships, contracts and grants with federal, state and local governments, private businesses and other non-profit organizations. NECAC is one of 19 nonprofit Community Action Agencies in Missouri and part of a national network of 980 agencies. NECAC has administered the HUD Section 8 program for more than 30 years, and currently manages more than 2,500 HUD rent-assistance vouchers throughout its


12-county service area. The agency has not been able to accept applications in the 11-county area since December 2012 because all program vouchers had been issued with all monies allocated. Applicants who meet federal income and other guidelines will be put on a waiting list. Elderly and disabled applicants will be given preference. Once their names reach the top of the list, applicants will receive a renter certificate to search for an apartment, house or mobile home. The certificate holder may use the current place of residence if the landlord agrees to participate in the program. NECAC provides certificate holders with a list of local landlords who participate. The certificate holders are responsible for making contact, applying for and signing an annual lease with the landlord. Potential tenants have 60

days to locate housing. After that time, the certificate becomes void. The amount of the rent subsidy depends upon the individual or family income, size of the family and the unit they select. Preference will be given to families who live or work in the county where they make application, and those who plan to live or work there. 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. More information is available by calling or visiting one of the following NECAC County Service Centers in the area: : Lewis County: 408 S. Fourth in Canton (573) 288-3969 and Marion County: 3518 Palmyra Road in Hannibal 573) 221-7166.

EDITORIAL NEWS IMAGES OF YESTERYEAR Sarah Marie Feldkamp supplied the following information about last week’s yesteryear artcile. She found an article that included the missing names. Miss Feldkamp was invited to attend as a guest of her brother, Norman Feldkamp. The Canton G.I. Farm Training boys each brought their wife or sister to school with them on Saturday morning, April 14. It was a pleasant and profitable half day. Assisting with the morning program were Miss Edna Dell Weinel, Public Health Nurse; Miss Sue Green, County home Extension Agent, and Miss Doris Lauber, District Nutritionist of the State Health department, Macon; Mrs. R.K.Leavitt, Home Economics instructor in Canton High School and Betty Jo Day, secretary in the Farm Training Office. Motion pictures, charts, flannel board and exhibits were used as teaching aids in the program for the ladies. The entire discussion centered around health and nutrition. The boys met in their usual classroom. One very informative exhibit showed two baskets of groceries each containing the same amount of food nutrients. One basket cost $5.00 and athe other basket only $3. At the intermission period both groups met in the high school gymnasium for sandwiches, doughnuts and coffee. These were prepared and served by members of the Home Economics class. G.I. Farm Training classes have been in operation at the Canton High School since July 1946. One class of Korean Veterans is now enrolled with Loyd N. Glaves as instructor. Mr Glaves has been an instructor for the greater part of the time since the program was started. He dropped out for about one year when the enrollment declined after World War II veterans had finished their training, and then came back on the job to take care of the Korean Veterans. Based on reports from the supervising official of Federal Veteran Administration, the G.I. Training program at Canton is one of the most efficient in the state. It is especially strong in the “On Farm Instruction” given to the trainees. In addition to attending classes four hours per week, each trainee spends two two-hour periods per m onth with the instructor on the veteran’s home farm. Also each veteran spends four hours per month in group

instruction. In this case several trainees meet together with their instructor to work out some farm problems such as running a terrace, treating pigs for lice, etc. Effective motivation for learning is an ever-present problem, for the teacher in the public school. In the G.I. Farm school it has been found that wives, children and financial obligations are the three most powerful motivating forces. So powerful, in fact, that the students often motivate the instructor instead of the usual procedure. High school students who helped Mrs. Leavitt prepare and serve the food and coffee were Betty Jo Wiskirchen,

Charlotte Brown, Judy Clark, Jackie Mease, Karma Berry, James Horsman and Mickey Zenge. Special Music at the refreshment hour was furnished by the high school trio, Karma Berry, Jackie Mease and Judy Clark, with Mickey at the piano. The Veterans Training Department of the high school thanks everyone who helped make the day a fine success. Pictured are participants of the GI Ag program classes held for returning GIs. Dates were believed to be either 1953 and 1954 or 1956 and 1957. Frank Smith was the teacher. Mr. Smith was a teacher at Canton.

Judge Tom Redington appointed to Knox County Court Second Circuit Presiding Judge Russell Steele has appointed Knox County Associate Circuit Judge Tom Redington to act as the Technology Coordinator for the 2nd Judicial Circuit, which includes Knox, Lewis, and Adair counties. Judge Redington volunteered to undertake these extra responsibilities in addition to his regular duties as Knox County Associate Circuit Judge, and will serve in that capacity for the next two years. “The Missouri Supreme Court has directed the courts of the 2nd Circuit to implement electronic filing of all court documents, starting in 2015,” Steele said, “and Judge Redington is uniquely qualified to lead the 2nd

Circuit into the paperless age. I have also suggested that he undertake a study of the increased use of technology, including the Polycom closed circuit teleconference TV system, to better serve the citizens of the 2nd Circuit.” Judge Redington has experience with electronic filing from his many years as Prosecuting Attorney in Marion County, and has extensive experience using other technology in the court system, including the Polycom teleconference video system. Electronic filing of court documents (e-filing) has been a priority project for the Missouri Supreme Court for some time. The project has been implemented circuit by

circuit, and the 2nd Circuit is scheduled to go “online” in 2015. E-filing is the next extension of the popular “” system that allows the public to view court cases on the internet. With e-filing, all court documents are filed electronically and are available for viewing via the internet. Judge Redington will coordinate the e-filing planning and implementation process for the 2nd Circuit, including the acquisition of scanners and other needed equipment, as well as the training of the judges, clerks, and attorneys as the system becomes fully operational during 2015. “Training the attorneys may be a bit like herding cats, but by

the end of 2015, we will have e-filing fully up and running,” Redington said with a smile. The Polycom system connects courtrooms to jails, prison facilities, juvenile offices, and other courtrooms throughout the state by closed circuit TV, allowing judges, attorneys, defendants, juveniles and their families, and other citizens to make Court appearances without actually traveling to the courthouse. It is especially helpful to law enforcement officials in avoiding the cost of transporting inmates to and from jails and prisons. Judge Redington will also explore the increased use of the Polycom system in the 2nd Circuit by attor-

neys and their clients in order to avoid attorneys’ travel time, and thus save people unnecessary attorneys’ fees. “If we can use new technology to save people money, while still providing an efficient, working judicial system,

then everyone wins,” said Redington. Judge Redington was appointed by Governor Jay Nixon to succeed retired Judge William Alberty. He and his wife, Marty, reside in Knox City.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Provides Safety Tips For Severe Weather Spring has arrived, and along with it, varying temperatures and weather patterns resulting in thunderstorms, flash flooding, and tornados. The Missouri State Highway Patrol offers these severe weather safety tips: Thunderstorms can include heavy rains, thunder, lightning, tornadoes, straight-line winds, flash floods, and hail. They can form quickly. A typical thunderstorm is 15 miles in diameter and lasts an average of 30 minutes. ALL thunderstorms are dangerous. When they occur, pay attention to weather reports and instructions. Tornados can appear at any time of day, any day of the year. Tornados may form during a thunderstorm. When a Tornado Watch is issued, this

means to stay alert and aware. Watch the sky and listen to weather reports. A Tornado Warning means seek shelter immediately. An interior room without windows on the lowest floor is the safest shelter location. Do not seek shelter in a cafeteria, gymnasium, or other large open room because the roof might collapse. Immediately leave a mobile home to seek shelter in a nearby building. Overpasses are not safe. The construction of an overpass can create a dangerous wind tunnel effect. If you are driving, you should stop and take shelter in a nearby building. If you are driving in a rural area, drive away from the tornado to the closest building. If you cannot get away, seek shelter in a roadside ditch. Protect

yourself from flying debris by covering your head with your arms, a coat, or a blanket. Be prepared to move quickly in case the ditch fills with water. Heavy rain can cause flooding, and spring showers will certainly spawn flash flooding. Never drive through fast-moving waters; even a small amount of fast-moving water can sweep a slow-moving vehicle off the roadway. If your vehicle becomes stuck in rising water, get out quickly and move to higher ground. Respect barriers or barricades put in place by MoDOT. They are there to protect you; don’t go around them! Widely varying temperatures can leave roadways or bridge floors covered with frost. Even though roads appear to be clear, it is important to

slow down and watch for slick areas, especially early in the morning. Temperature changes also cause fog to develop. Drivers need to slow down, turn on their headlights, and be prepared to stop in foggy conditions. Weather conditions requiring the use of windshield wipers are usually those that affect visibility. Motorists are reminded that state law requires them to turn on their vehicle’s headlights any time they are using the windshield wipers. It only takes a second to turn on your vehicle’s headlights. But, that second could make you more visible to other drivers and prevent a traffic crash. No matter what the forecast: If you’re going to be on the water, you need a safe boating plan. During

severe weather, stay off the water. Currents become swift and dangerous. Fixed objects and fast moving water are a bad combination: Don’t go boating in these conditions. Floating debris can easily capsize or sink a boat. After heavy rains, lakes have more debris to watch for. Boaters should always keep an eye on the weather. Hypothermia is also a concern due to rapid weather changes associated with spring. Make sure to take extra clothes and remember that the dangers of hypothermia increase exponentially when temperatures drop. Fog on our lakes and rivers is common during this time of year and results in low visibility. When visibility decreases, boaters need to slow down. No matter what the season: Watch for changes in the

weather. When you hear the thunder in the distance, respond to it. Don’t wait until you see the lightning. Get to shore ... Get to safety. When dangerous weather approaches, whether you are on land or on the water, implement your safety plan, postpone activities, monitor the weather, and get to a safe place. In support of “The Drive To ZERO Highway Deaths,” the Patrol encourages motorists to protect themselves and their passengers by making sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Watercraft operators should ensure that everyone in the vessel is wearing an approved life jacket. Click It 4 Life And Wear It!!

Who plants a seed beneath the sod, and waits to see, believes in God. On May 3 the running for the roses will take place. The first Kentucky Derby was run in 1875. In 1973 Secretariet won the triple crown. Nancy Howe and Michael Foley entertained family on Easter Sunday. Guests were from Springfield, Edwardsville, Godfrey, Quincy, Iii., and St. Louis. It was the first time the two great grand babies were together. They were a delight. Easter guests of Alice Solter were Riff and Susan Scholz, Judge Richard Scholz of Quincy, Ill. Scott and Branden Dean of Columbia, Mo. A very enjoyable day for all. Brad and Tammy Neil of Palmyra and sons Braxton and Brayden came to the home of Bert and Pat Cottrell this week end. The guys did some yard work while here. Janice Smith is spending a few days visiting her father, Bruce Solter. Weather permitting they along with Alice Solter will go to Keokuk to visit Bruce’s sister Pearl on Monday. Jason and his mother, Scarlett Miller spent time visiting with Joyce Solter, his grandmother on Thursday. Hard to say who had the most fun. Dale and Barbara Jane Hillman long tme friends of Alvin and Mary Vaughn called on them Wednesday. They brought a boquet of flowers to Mary for her birthday. Mary enjoyed the flowers and especially the visit. Early out from school on Wednesday brought Phyllis Heindselman a visit with Jr. Hawkins a neighbor. They enjoyed their time together. On Thursday Phyllis enjoyed visiting with the other retired members from the Medical Clinic. Friday she made a musical happy birthday greeting to her granddaughter, Sheridan. While gathering news Jenny Reid told of her great grandfather, Milton Edward Schork losing his wife with three young children behind. The oldest her great grandfather was 7 and the youngest a child of 18 months. Family and friends helped when they could with the children but Milton used a plank with a blanket on it for the 18 month child when he and the 7 year old went to plow. They would plow one row then the other one would plow the next row with each one checking on the baby when he cam to the rows end. Milton never remarried and did what had to be done to keep his family together. Russ an Mary Hill of Carrolton spent the week end with Bessie Stambaugh. On Saturday evening they were joined by Dave and Dianna Stambaugh, Mike and Virginia Carpenter, Ed and Pat Stambaugh, Aren, Kim and Brodk Schneider and Edith Schmuck. An enjoyable feast and lots of visiting made for a wonderful day.


By Erma Dee A Sunday afternoon wind storm caused a tree to fall on the house of Jeremy and Regina Dredge. Workers quickly covered the damaged roof with tarps and we hope it sufficient to keep the rain out. No other town damage was reported to Erma Dee Jones. On Thursday evening Regina Dredge was a guest speaker at the LaGrange Lions Club meeting. Regina is a Democratic candidate for County Clerk of Lewis County. Saturday, Regina and Jeremy Dredge and children, Cody and Shailee enjoyed the Maywood Fish Fry sponsored by the Maywood Fire Department. Donnette Carter Denise Goodwin had an informative week at Jefferson City attending the County Collectors Conference. Subjects covered in the four day sessions included legislative issues, state auditors, bankruptcy, Sunshine laws and other information. Saturday, David and Denise Goodwin went to Maywood for the Fire Department’s Fish Fry. At Park United Methodist Church in Lewistown, “Holy Sunday” was celebrated. Rev. Clayton Peak sang and played several numbers on his banjo and the sermon was interspersed with jokes and puns throughout the service. Rev. Peak and his wife live in Hannibal and she is also a minister. Erma Dee Jones has been house bound all week due to a fall she took in her home. Thankfully it was bruises and sprains and not broken bones. Thought for the Day: God never told us we would not have trials and suffering., but He did say He would go through them with us.

Thursday, May 1, 2014 Press-News Journal •


COMMUNITY NEWS Civil War Events In Canton April 1864 Charles Van Os, a subscriber from Hannibal and formerly of Canton provided the following information about events that occurred 150 years ago in Canton concerning the death of H.M. Woodyard. He also sent a copy of a page from The Canton Press dated April 21, 1864, along with Mr. Woodyard’s obituary information and facts about the Twenty-First Missouri. H.M. (Humphrey Marshall) Woodyard was a prominent Lewis County resident in the 1840-1864 range. HE was born in 1811, the oldest child of Jesse (Jr.) and Elizabeth Crook Woodyard. He was born in Bourbon Co., Ky. (later Grant of Pendleton Co., Ky.) He came to Lewis County around 1835 with his parents and lived in Tully. He was married to Amelia R. Nelson on Sept. 3, 1841., in Lewis County. He was admitted to the bar in April 1842. He was a member of the Bench and Bar in Canton and Monticello, Edina (Knox County), Kahoka (Clark County) and Memphis (Scotland County). H.M. And a Mr. Morrow established an addition to Tully and had “Woodyard Square” in Tully where his law office was. He was elected to the Mo. House of Representatives in 1847 and served one term (1848-1850). He was a land speculator and by 1860 owned 4000 acres of land in Lewis County when the Civil war started he had a commission to organize the 2nd North Mo. Home Guard as Colonel. David Moore organized the 1st North Mo. Home Guard unit when the war started they were consolidated into the 21st Mo. Infantry. David Moore was Colonel, H.M. Woodyard was Lt. Colonel. There were instrumental in keeping N.E. Missouri in the Union. Along with Colonel John Glover and Colonel John Taylor, M.D. (both served with the 3rd Mo. Cav.) They all gave many speeches to encourage the local people to stay with the Union. The 21st Mo. Inf. Was made up mostly Lewis and Knox County men and some from Clark and Scotland. The first big battle they fought in was Shiloh (Pittsburg Landing) in Tennessee, In the 1863 election the people nominated H.M. Woodyard to be circuit Judge. J.W. Barrett, editor of the Canton Press was one of the backers of Woodyard. He won the election without campaigning. (He was away serving in the Army). He won anyway, so he resigned from the Army on Jan. 27. 1864. The circuit included Lewis, Clark, Scotlan and Knox Counties. In April 1854, he was holding court in Memphis when he died suddenly on April 14, 1864. The funeral was held Sunday April 17, 1864 at Tully, burial in Tully Cemetery. The 21st Missouri Inf., was home on 30 day furlough to reenlist and recruit more soldiers. They were getting ready to go back to active duty so they gave him a rousing military funeral. The 21st Mo., then served in the battle of Atlanta, Georgia and was in General Sherman’s March to the Sea. Both of H.M Woodyard’s grandfathers were Revolutionary war veterans. Jeremiah Crook Sr. and Jesse Woodyard Sr., Elizabeth Crook Woodyard (his mother) was Mr. Van Os Great-great-great aunt. His father was cousin to Mr. Van Os’s great-


great-great grandmother, Jane Williams Crook (wife of Jeremiah Crook, Sr.) so Charles Van Os was related to H.M on both sides of his family. Mr. Van Os also sent this information from The Twenty-First Missouri, In All Directions. We were grateful to find the regiment in the enjoyment of excellent health, and though looking somewhat toil worn and sun-bronzed from their recent long march on Sherman’s great raid, they have the elastic step and strong sinews of what they are now very properly called, Veterans. The boys of company I reached Memphis to find Judge Woodward holding a term of court there. Russell, for one, hastened to call at the residence of Colonel Ed Kutzner, where Woodyard was staying. Even if the judge could entertain the “old boys” with stories of the political typhoon touched off by his return, some of them must have come away uneasy. Woodyard neither looked nor felt well, suffering as he was from a worsening kidney and bladder problem. Dr. D.B. Fowler, keeping an anxious eye on him, caustiosly pronounced him “out of danger” on April 6. The Union Aid Society of Canton wanted to give the veterans a sendoff, and invitations went our for them to assemble at Canton’s City Hall on April 15 for a reception, banquet and ball. Every man was due back at Benton Barracks the following Monday, and on the appointed day the troops met in Canton for the festivities. Welcoming ceremonies had hardly begun before a chill settled on the crowd. Spreading was the grim news that Woodyard was dead. Confirmation was at hand-the circuit judge had breathed his last in Memphis on Thursday. There was little point in trying to entertain these boys, and the carefully planned social event collapsed. Humphrey Marshall Woodyard came home Saturday morning. Amelia Woodyard and her sorrowing brood of three daughters and two sons saw the husband and gather to his resting-place Sunday noon. Grief-ridden Union men of Lewis County closed ranks behind them-local Masons, Union Leaguers and militiamen lining up for their parts in the pageant. More information says, Knox County boys could not quite keep their minds off politics either. True enough, the had different ways of expressing themselves, ways suited to the brush country of northeastern Missouri, Just to the southwest of Colony lived a prosperous farmer, Rice McFadden, whose Southern sympathies scandalized the vacationing warriors. As Moore’s boys saw things, McFadden had helped “burn out” their folks in 1861, and it was time to return the favor. Several warned the hated neighbor to “get gone” while they were in the area. When the gentleman did not “regard” their threats, the veterans decided it was time to burn him out, and possibly shoot him on sight. On April 14 a party showed up for the “housewarming”. The proprietor eluded them, with only Henry Hubble catching a glimpse of him before he took cover. But where ever McFadden hid, he could see a column of smoke towering over the

clearing where his house had stood. ( Henry Hubble was a cousin of Mr. Van Os on the Boltz side. The following three articles were printed in the Canton Press on April 21, 1864. The sad announcement that Judge Woodyard had breathed his last at Memphis, on Thursday reached this place on Friday night and was communicated to many sorrow stricken friends during the ovation to the soldiers of the 21st Mo., recently under his command. His remains reached his late residence on Saturday morning and appropriate funeral services took place on Sunday under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity the Union League and the military. The funeral cortege under the direction of Judge Ellis as chief Marshal, left the house at 12 o’clock and repaired to the DeSoto Church where religious services were conducted by Revs. Stewart, Dunlap and Gardner, after which the procession was reformed and moved off in appropriate order to the family burying ground beyond Tully where the solemn service of the Masonic Order was repeated by Col. S.W. B. Carnegy. The Band played a solemn and affecting dirge, and the military under command of Capt. Best, fired the usual salute when the long train of over 50 wagons besides a multitude on horseback and on foot retired, all impressed with the solemn and appropriate services of the occasion. Returned to Duty The 21st Mo. Veteran Regiment, having been ordered to report at St. Louis in preparation for a return to active service, left for their place of rendezvous early in the week, Col. Moore, Maj. Moore, and several of the other officers went down on the Harry Johnson Sunday morning, the body of the Regiment took the Lucy Bertram on Monday, and a few were

left for the Die Vernon on Tuesday. The scene at our landing on Monday morning, was one of peculiar interest. Parents, wives, children and friends gathered in large numbers for the final leave taking and the fond embrace and copious tears bespoke of strength of the affection thus subjected to the severest trial. Soon the fond parent, the kind brother or the beloved son may be in the front of battle and his life offered up in sacrifice. Fort Pillow Disaster The intimation of a disaster at Ft. Pillow, given in our published dispatches of last week, is fully confirmed by later intelligence. It appears that a large Confederate force, commanded by Gen’ls Forrest and Chalmers, advanced against that post on the morning of the 12th and demanded its surrender on the usual terms. This being refused an attack was made in force from different directions and the works carried by storm, when a scene of carnage ensued appalling in the extreme. The negro troops broke and fled, only to encounter the other advancing column and as the result out of 350 or 400 negroes only about 50 escaped every officer being lost while of the 200 white soldiers, all but 80 are reported killed, wounded or missing. We cannot credit all the statements of the rebel barbarity, that have been published concerning this unfortunate affair, but as the subject has been referred to proper authorities for investigation, we may await their verdict. Having never as yet been able to see the wisdom of employing negro troops in this fratricidal war, the event of the past are certainly not calculated to improve our vision. Yet it is obvious that our government is bound by every consideration of honor and humanity to protect and defend all whom it has determined to employ in its armies. What action will be taken in such an emergency the “government” has yet to determine.

In Memory of Anton Kozelichki May 24th, 1992 to April 24th, 2014 21 Years Old Senior at Culver-Stockton College I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and the days before that too. I think of you in silence and often speak your name. All I have are your memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake with which I will never part. God has you in his keeping I have you in my heart.

Celebrate Life “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalms 118:24

Keep smiling that big smile of yours Anton. Bless heaven with that big smile and heart of yours as you did Culver-Stockton. Hope you are enjoying playing football again. We will never forget you and we will make sure your memory lives on here forever at Culver. Go Wildcats! I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7 Love and miss you, Katelyn Clickner

Youth alcohol awareness campaign encourages smart choices Teens and young adults have a full life ahead of them. They are tomorrow’s dreamers and their choices are many. All too often senseless drinking and the choice to get behind the wheel can change those dreams forever. At that time in their lives, one moment can define them as an athlete, a musician, a writer, or a killer. Who will they become? In the last three years, there were 69 fatal crashes and 208 disabling injury crashes involving an impaired driver under the age of 21. As a result of a young person making the wrong choice, 85 people died and 322 were seriously injured in these crashes.

Law enforcement will be on the lookout for underage impaired driving May 1-12 with a high visibility enforcement campaign. Timing of the campaign will coincide with statewide prom and graduation dates, which are often when teens and young adults consume alcohol. “’Don’t Let One Moment Define You’ is a new campaign and a new approach to reach today’s teens,� said Dr. Leanna Depue, chair of the executive committee of the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety. “The thoughts of becoming anything they want to be are quickly overshadowed by the consequences of one moment, one bad decision to drink and drive.�

Missouri has a Zero Tolerance Law. If you are under 21, your license will be suspended if you’re caught driving with even a trace of alcohol in your system. Consequences of drunk driving include jail time, the loss of driver licenses, or being sentenced to use ignition interlocks. Other financial hits include higher insurance rates, attorney fees, and court costs. In the worst cases, the underage driver becomes a killer.

COMMUNITY NEWS West qualifies for Junior Olympic National Championships

Spurgeon Is National Jr. Olympic 3-Position Champion Garrett Spurgeon competing in his last National Jr. Olympic Venue made the best of it. After two days of air rifle competition Garrett stood solidly in second place going into the final. Garrett finished fourth in the Air Final still giving him enough total points to secure the Silver Medal in the Jr. Men’s Air Rifle Match. Coming off the Silver Medal in air, was a confidence builder for Garrett going into the first day of 3-P Smallbore, (Garrett’s favorite discipline.) Garrett finished Kneeling by dropping only 9 points, 391/400. The kneeling has been a struggle as of late,


but he seemed to get it all together, and breezed thru it. In the Prone position, which has always been one of his strong suits, he managed to drop only four points out of the 400. This also a confidence builder going into the standing position, the most difficult of the three. Garrett finished with a 385/400, giving Garrett a demanding 12 point lead over his next closed competitor. The 1172 total was also a personal best for Garrett. The second day of competition was not as successful for any of the shooters, but it proved to be enough for Garrett to secure the Gold Medal by a com-

manding 12 points, and the Overall 3-P Men’s Jr. Olympic Championship. This achievement has been on Garrett’s bucket list for some time, and can now be crossed off. With the points that Garrett received for the Air Matches, Air Finals, the 3-P Matches, and 3-P Finals, will be added to his total points from competition at USA Rifle & Pistol Nationals, in Ft. Benning, Ga. in June. The points for all Jr. Competitors will be totaled, and then it will be determined, who will be chosen to attend the Jr. World Championships, to be held in Granada, Spain in September 2014.

COMMUNITY NEWS Blessing Hospital Responds to Bus Crash Emergency Kate Rhoads, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, Emergency Medical Services, Blessing Hospital prepared the following article. April 1, 2014, seemed like a typical Tuesday at Blessing Hospital. It turned out to be anything but. A school bus loaded with 30 Highland elementary and high school students turned upside down in a ditch at 3:30 pm outside of Ewing, Mo. Moments after the accident occurred, Lewis County Ambulance and Air Evac were in contact with Blessing Hospital to let us know they were in route to the scene of the accident. This prompt notification allowed for early activation of Blessing’s, “Code Yellow” emergency policy, which drove the quick mobilization of resources within the ED and other Hospital departments. A Code Yellow is the hospital’s response to a multiple casualty event that results in or has the potential to result in rapid patient surge beyond the capability to meet that demand at the time. The Code Yellow called on April 1 was the Hospital’s first in five years. However, the hospital holds Code Yellow drills on a regular basis, to practice staff response and test the policy. Staff getting ready to leave for the day was held as Blessing waited for more information. The, “Code Yellow Confirm” was announced shortly after, as Blessing received notification that there were approximately five critical pediatric patients and at least 20 walking wounded being brought to Blessing. Code Yellow Confirmed means the Emergency Center has received confirmation of multiple casualties and can give approximate time of arrival of first casualties. The quick action of the ED, along with the 30 plus minute lead time, meant that we were ready when patients began to arrive. Triage was set up inside the ED entrance, with a physician and nurses utilizing the START and JumpSTART Triage System (tagging patients green, yellow, red) to

prioritize care. In total, 25 pediatric patients and one adult were brought to Blessing Hospital as a result of this event. Six arrived by either helicopter or an ambulance, while 20 were brought by private vehicle. Of the 26, 20 were treated and released that evening. One was transferred to St. Louis Children’s Hospital; one was admitted to ICU and 4 to 6400/Peds. Overall, Blessing’s response to this event was effective and appropriate. Blessing has emergency plans in place and staff is familiar with their emergency role as a result of training, drills, exercises, and education. Everyone reacted quickly and as a team. Debbie Heinecke, the Incident Commander, along with the rest of the Incident Management Team, ensured appropriate coordination and communication was flowing into and out of the Hospital Command Center. Labor Pool was activated and was able to reassign staff from non-affected departments to essential emergency functions. Volunteer Services set up a Family Assistance Center in the Auditorium where extended family and friends could get information, comfort, and refreshments. The Public Relations and Communications team ensured timely and accurate information was being filtered to the local and national media while maintaining the privacy of patients and their families. Response from physicians was tremendous. Surgical Services did an amazing job of coordinating multiple high priority requests. Staff was in the midst of dealing with two, unplanned surgeries that had to take place within a set time fame that day when they learned they would receive two traumas from the bus crash, also in need of surgery immediately. The needs of all patients were met. Blessing Hospital also recognizes the outstanding work of the EMS personnel on the scene of the accident that day.

Parents of children involved in the Lewis County C-1 bus crash on April 1 were given the opportunity to submit thank you letters and give an update on their children. Natalie Allensworth is still recovering at home and an article and update on her condition will be in a future edition. Thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone involved. John Logan: John Logan is the Bus 18 driver. He received minor injuries from the accident. He has returned to driving the bus. I want to thank and express my heartfelt gratitude for all the prayers and love bestowed upon the students and myself after the C-1 Bus accident. There is no way I can begin to tell this wonderful community what they have meant to me during the healing process. Thank you to Bus 18 parents. Their concern for me was greatly appreciated. The responders, many from surrounding counties, Sue Ann Gaus and the other individuals first on the scene, Highland and Canton Elementary kids for their cards, the LaGrange and Mt. Olivet UMC’s for the prayer blankets and the special service by the LaGrange Youth Center. The acts of kindness from everyone has been greatly appreciated. John Logan Bus 18 Driver

Blake Kaylor received moderate injuries during the crash. His brother Carson was also injured. Blake was hospitalized for several days, but both boys have now returned to school and continue to heal. On behalf of my family I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the community for their support of, not only my family, but all those who were involved in the accident. The many members of the community showed us why we have chosen to live in a smaller tight nit surrounding. In times like this the community as a whole has banded together to make sure all kids, and parents, make it through. We all have been blessed in the fact circumstances could have been much worse that they were. The outpouring of love, rather it has been food, cards, visits to the hospital, or words of encouragement have benefitted not only my children but us as parents also. We also would like to thank John Logan for all he has done. The children have always been special to him. He has continued to check on the children and shows a continued concern for their well-being. During the event he was more concerned about the children’s well-being over his own, making sure all children were attended to FIRST. The teaching staff and all the personnel at Lewis County C-1 School district have been a great asset as we try to put life back to normal. They have been very understanding and helpful with the children and returning to school. Finally we would like to thank all emergency personnel. Both at the hospital and on scene. The hospital staff were very professional, ready and efficient with what needed to be done. During our time in the hospital the staff were very attentive and compassionate to our needs. The Emergency Services on scene, whether law enforcement, ambulance or fire personnel were quick to respond. Thank you. The Kaylor’s Timmy, Jaimie, Blake, Carson and Bentley

COMMUNITY NEWS Shane Jones, 13, received a broken leg in the accident. He had to have surgery and pins were placed in his leg. He has a full leg cast and is recovering. He recently returned to school. His brother, Connor was also on the bus when the crash occurred.

Karyann suffered from severe head lacerations and concussions along with back and neck strain. She is slowly improving and hopes to return to school before the end of the semester. We want everyone to know that we are truly thankful and amazed at the outpouring of love and support shown to us since the bus accident. Thanks to everyone for all the prayers, thoughts, visits, cards, emails, texts, food, flowers, gifts, candy and other ways that people have shown how much they care. There are several individuals we want to acknowledge and if we have left someone out, it is just because life has been very hectic, but we do remember every act of kindness and will try to thank everyone in person when possible. Our family, Grandpa Robert Farr, uncles and aunts, Rodney, Curtis, Loren and Kim Farr, Lee and Susan Murphy and other family members locally and across the country, thanks for all you do all the time. Thanks to all our friends and neighbors who offered help that we didn’t we know we would need and who are always there for us. We also want to mention our late uncle Ronald Farr who drove Bus 18 for years and drove our children to school safely each day. Because of Ronald’s 40 plus years as a driver, bus drivers have always been special to us and we appreciate all their years of hard work and devotion. Thank you to Becky Heimonen and the other drivers near the scene. We are thankful to bus driver John Logan and will never forget his aid to Karyann after the crash. As a former Navy man and policeman, we could not have asked for a better qualified person to tend to the children. We ask that the community continues to support John Logan with prayers and words of comfort. The Press-News Journal staff and owners have been amazing, seeing to our every need and supporting us in every way, from being by our side at the hospital to everyone pitching in to help with duties at the newspaper and also for all the meals provided and other acts of kindness. We want to thank all the subscribers, advertisers, customers and others who have called to express their concerns for Karyann. Thanks to the former Press-News Journal owners, the Steinbeck and Pegler families, they are a family that cares about other people and their support and kind acts will never be forgotten. Sue Ann Gaus: Circumstances led for her to be one of the first on the scene and seeing a familiar face and knowing she was doing everything in her power to help was comforting. Sue Ann was calm and in control. Parents have trusted SueAnn Gaus to take care of their children for years and she has never let them down. Her actions immediately after the crash and since that time show the character of the wonderful person she is and always has been. Peggy(Cottrell) Steinbeck her care and concern for the children at the scene and after is a tribute to the tradition of the Cottrell family and their commitment to the community. Mrs. Ebeling: the heartbreak on her

face at the scene and at the hospital melted our hearts and we knew she was hurting as much as those injured. With her upcoming retirement, it is sad that her last days as superintendent would involve a tragic event, but her legacy of caring and devotion to all the students over the years will always be remembered. We thank her for comforting Karyann at the scene until we arrived. Mrs. Ebeling is an administrator who is a role model for all other schools and the Lewis County C-1 School District has been fortunate to have such a qualified person that has served the community with knowledge, dignity and respect. Retired nurses Carol Dobbs and Sharon Mitok who came to our house to help with the wound dressings. Their help, medical knowledge and advise was much needed and appreciated. We also would like to thank our home health care nurse, Kristen Goings, who has provided outstanding care and concern. The elected officials who have called, visited, emailed or sent cards expressing their concerns is a reflection on the kind of people in local government that makes Lewis County a great place to live with leaders who only want the best for the citizens. Thanks to all the emergency personnel and everyone who responded to the scene, even those who weren’t called, but showed up to help. All the parents appreciate everything you did to help. We are fortunate to have individuals that spend hours volunteering and training to be prepared in the face of disaster. Blessing Hospital was well prepared to handle the emergency and we appreciated all the nurses, doctors, other staff and volunteers at the hospital that helped all the parents and children. We also thank all the parents who came to the hospital to show their support for those injured. Thanks to Karla Bradshaw who was at the hospital with her husband and who is a friend that showed support and comfort during the long nights at the hospital. Many thanks to the LaGrange Lions Club for their support and we acknowledge the many members who work hard to provide help to families in crisis. Thanks to the LaGrange Community Youth Center for the special prayer service and all the churches in the community for their prayers. The Lewis County School District staff and students. Thanks to all who helped at the scene and to all the high school kids, parents and teachers that visited Karyann. We ask the community to continue to show support for all the children and parents who were involved in the accident. For every tear we shed, a thousand prayers were said and we know we are blessed that this accident could have had a different outcome. We thank God everyday that all the children will recover and have bright futures ahead of them.

We would like to thank everyone for all the acts of kindness during and since the bus accident. Everyone has been so kind and we appreciate all the prayers, thoughts, cards and special attention. A big thank you to all the emergency personnel, Lewis County C-1 staff, the churches, the LaGrange Youth Center for the prayer service, the LaGrange Lions Club and everyone who has helped us in any way. We appreciate the support. Thank you. Jeff, Becky, Shane and Connor Jones.

De’Andre Lewis has a severe back injury. He has undergone numerous tests, while healing at home. An MRI recently revealed five additioal fractures in the thoracic area of his back, including breaking two spinous process bones and fracturing one on each side of the throraci area for a total of nine bones fractured. His return to school is uncertain at this time. Amaya Lewis was also on the bus and received cuts and bruises and several contusions to her left arm. She is healing and has returned to school. On behalf of De’Andre and Amaya Lewis, our family would like to personally thank the community for their support during this accident. We will forever be indebted to the EMT’s, law enforcement and all the medical personnel at the scene and at Blessing Hospital that assisted with our injured children on the bus, even those who may have bolunteered as bystanders. We also want to thank the brave young adults that helped get the children out of the bus, and rose to the occasion. We appreciated all the visits, texts, calls, thoughts and concerns. And all the prayers for healing while De’Andre was hospitalized and still recovering. We also want to thank the staff, faculty and students of the Lewis County C-1 School District for the flowers, balloons, kind gestures and the cards from classmates and teachers. The community support has been outouring and will never be forgotten. A special thanks to the LaGrange Lions Club for all the support and the LaGrange Youth Center for the prayer service and support. This journey would not have been possible without the support of our family and friends. Thank you so much. Delmar, Melissa, De’Andre, Keegan and Amaya Lewis

April 1, 2014 was a very important day. It was one of my granddaughter’s birthday! Family plans had been set and gifts had been purchased. My husband and I were eager to watch as she opened her birthday gift – Isabelle – the special American Girl doll! However, life dramatically changed after 3 p.m. on that chilly Tuesday afternoon. Bus 18, loaded down with very special people, flipped over. I will never forget the scene when I arrived and the feeling I experienced when I saw the injured. I saw familiar faces and people helping….everywhere. The picture of John Logan kneeling over Karyann Cox will be forever in my heart. The overwhelming fear that little Natalie was caught under the bus was almost debilitating. Children were everywhere…but in an organized place. Children had assisted children. Children were helping children and there were so many caring individuals helping the children. I will never be able to know or thank everyone involved. It was a crisis that brought a community together with one purpose; save the children; help the children and protect the children. In the 15 years that I have been a Superintendent for the Lewis County C-1 School District, this was a crisis for which I had some preparation but desperately needed the community and the community was there. I will continually keep the children and John in my prayers and know that without the grace of God, the culmination would not have been so good. Take good care. Jacqueline Ebeling, Superintendent Lewis County C-1 School District

Sincerely, Ed and Rita Cox Karyann, Kaylynn and Robert

COMMUNITY NEWS Scenes from the April 1 School bus Accident On behalf of the Lewis County C-1 School District, I would like to thank the following organizations for their assistance during our time need on April 1st, 2014. Without the community support and support of entities outside of the community, the crisis experienced would not have ended as it did. Lewis County R-4 Fire Department (Maywood and Ewing Stations), Lewis County Ambulance District, Lewis County Emergency Management, Lewis County Health Department, Lewis County Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, LaGrange Police Department, LaBelle Fire Department, Canton Police Department, Clark County Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, Clark County Ambulance District, Robertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garage, Mark Twain Casino EMT, Missouri Department of Conservation, Blivenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Automotive Employees, Western Lewis County Fire District â&#x20AC;&#x201C; LaBelle and Lewistown Stations, Missouri State Highway Patrol â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Troop B in Macon , Air Evac 5 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Quincy, Air Evac 59 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fort Madison, Survival Flight 3 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hannibal, Blessing Hospital, Hannibal Regional Hospital, and Marion County Ambulance District These organizations, coupled with the parents and community patrons, provided support and assistance that was so desperately needed. This horrific accident was a crisis that we would never want to see happen again. Without the courageous acts and Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intervention the Lewis County C-1 School District would not have been on the receiving end of benefactors. Thank you and God Bless. Sincerely, Jacqueline R. Ebeling, Superintendent Lewis County C-1

Gavin Meyer was received serious injuries to his arm. He recently returned to school after stays at Blessing Hospital and St. Louis Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital. He is receiving physical therapy three times a week and in a few months will undergo more surguries to get his wrist and fingers working again. His brother Hayden was also on the bus and received minor injuries. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel from all of the out pouring of prayers, cards, calls, visits and well wishes during our stay in the hospital with Gavin. This has been a very trying time for our family and we could not have done it without the help of all of our family, friends, church family, community members and Pastor Andrew. Thank you very much to our families for all of their help with Hayden to help keep his world as normal as possible while we were gone. We are very gracious and humbled from the help given to us by the community. We could not ask for a better place to live than Lewis County. We would also like to thank all of the emergency workers, neighbors and students who helped the kids that day get to a safe place and a special shout out to Barry Mathes for getting Gavin onto the helicopter to get him to a hospital. We will never forget you. As we continue down this long road to recovery for Gavin, we will also continue to remember all those that have helped us or will help us in the future. God Bless You All. A very heart felt Thank You from the Family of Gavin Meyer Kevin, Lezlie, Brandon and Hayden
