They belong to Ram, an 18-month-old Belgian Malinois and the newest member of the department’s K-9 Unit. Ram began his service with the sheriff’s office alongside handler Deputy A.J. Carrel earlier this winter. “I got him when he was 15 months old,” Carrel said. “He was imported from Poland, and I got him in November.” After a short acclimation period, Ram and Carrel completed a seven-week training course at MidMichigan Kennels, where Ram was trained in locating narcotics, tracking individuals and providing officer protection. “He is trained to identify five different odors of narcotics.

If I don’t have the tennis ball, he won’t work for me.” Ram is now the second member of the department’s K-9 Unit, joining Matty, who has served since summer 2010. His addition to the unit was made possible through a fundraising campaign supported by area businesses, organizations and individuals. “The K-9 Unit is such a valuable asset,” said Sheriff’s Office Lt. Will Akin. “We reached out to the community last year, and we were able to collect enough money to pay for Ram and the training.” Akin said a service dog can cost from $6,000 to $12,000, depending on where the dog is imported from and the training it receives.

Center ends assistance Clay County Public Health Center has announced that help with enrolling in the new health insurance marketplace is no longer available at the health center. Staff from the Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center has been at Clay County Public Health Center each Tuesday since October, 2013. Due to the high demand for assistance at its main campus downtown, all counselors are currently being reassigned to work only at the SUR facility located at 825 Euclid Ave., Kansas City. Anyone who wants to contact a counselor to help navigate the marketplace can call 474-4920 for an appointment.

Northland Therapeutic Riding Center receives donations Last fall, the Northland Therapeutic Riding Center was a recipient of North Kansas City’s Chip in for Charities, and the organization has been selected as the recipient of another charitable

program this summer. The employees at the North Kansas City Hospital hold a golf tournament in which three local charities receive the proceeds. NTRC received $34,000 from this tournament last year. NTRC has been chosen this year for the Change for Charities event hosted by Zona Rosa. In the month of July, the money from parking meters in Zona Rosa will go to NTRC. Northland Therapeutic Riding Center is a nonprofit organization that offers equine-assisted therapy to clients with special needs in the Northland. Through riding, there is a healing interaction between the horse, rider and volunteer, according to the center’s staff. Riding encourages cognitive activity, sensory integration, correct muscle tone, gross and fine motor skills, increased physical stamina, proper posture, independence, social skills, and emotional stability. NTRC will conduct a volunteer orientation from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 11, at 13608 Henson Road in Holt.

Man in custody after Clay County pursuit Donnie R. Stroble of Kansas City was charged with a first-degree felony for assault/attempted assault on a law enforcement officer and a felony

for resisting arrest by fleeing after leading Clay County deputies on a pursuit Friday, Feb. 21. The incident began when a Clay County sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop a vehicle being driven by Stroble at 10:46 a.m. for a traffic violation in the area of Missouri Highway 210 and Northeast Kimball Drive in southern Clay County. Stroble failed to stop for the deputy. During the ensuing pursuit, Stroble continued to drive erratically, forcing deputies to use Stop Sticks to end the chase. After having its tires spiked, the vehicle came to a stop near the area of Highway 210 and Bluff Road. Stroble left the vehicle and fled on foot before being tazed and apprehended without further incident. Stroble’s bond was set at $100,000. Investigators are still reviewing video of the pursuit, and additional charges may be filed.

Correction The Feb. 20 story “Christian Community Chorus seeks singers for debut season” contained an error. Rehearsals are scheduled to begin Tuesday, March 4, and continue weekly at 7 p.m. at Gashland Presbyterian Church, 8029 N. Oak Trafficway in Kansas City. Performances will be Sunday, April 27, at the church and Tuesday, April 29, at a to-be-determined location. For more information, call Director Larry Harris at 529-5725.

A few days into the recovery from the Joplin tornado,

Tara and Lily were assigned to search what was left of St. John’s Hospital. They needed to go to the roof, they were told, though it was unclear whether the building was structurally sound. The tornado hit the hospital dead on. There had been a scramble to save patients the night of the storm.

CHAPTER 7: Searching St. John’s her dogs out onto the porch. Jeff was still gone. He worked day and night. The kids were with his parents. That evening, it was just Tara Prosser and her Weimaraners. The grass of the yard was green from all of the rain, and the dogs ran out to play on it, chasing each other in circles, Lily, still exuberant despite a day of working through the wreckage.

A group of firefighters surrounded Lily and Tara in a tight circle as they ascended the remains of the hospital’s stairs. The windows were blown out, and holes were torn in the walls. Heights frightened Tara, but they didn’t scare Lily. In the heat of the search, she sniffed everywhere, intent on her target. Tara clung to her dog with a taut leash, lest Lily stray too close to a gaping hole. Tara’s stomach lurched as she climbed up and up toward the roof of what was left of St. John’s. Tara remembered cradling her daughter, right there, on the third floor where she was born. The search team reached the roof, and for the first time Tara saw the full scope of the damage. There was destruction as far as she could see. No buildings, no trees. There was mud. There was lumber. Whole lives and livelihoods lay in catastrophic ruin before her.

Only one month before that evening Lily had almost died. Now she romped across the yard. She panted and ran and rolled about as if nothing else mattered. She could spend entire days searching for death and still come home and find some measure of bliss. Tara was tired. She let a few tears slide down her cheeks. She watched what she had almost lost. She thought about what she and so many other Joplin residents actually had. She called the dogs to come inside. She needed to wash her clothes and give the pups their dinner. She needed to talk to her kids and finish a few dishes. Normal things.

A long day lay ahead of her tomorrow. Her breath caught in her throat. Her She and Lily had work to do. mind could not fathom that this was her J J J home. She started to have doubts. How was Joplin going to come back from this? Nine months after Tara and Lily climbed to the roof of St. John’s Hospital, the pair Everything had changed. received a surprise. Tara learned that That evening, after searching St. John’s, Lily was nominated for the 2012 Hero Tara and Lily returned home. Tara Dog Awards sponsored by the American showered, changed out of her dusty, Humane Association. sweat-soaked clothes and walked with

The Hero Dog Awards were created by the AHA to recognize the extraordinary bond shared by people and their dogs. The award is presented nationally in eight categories. Lily was a finalist in the Search and Rescue Dog category for her brave and relentless work in Joplin following the tornado. Being a finalist was a measure of recognition for all that Lily had done for her hometown. The Hero Dog Award nomination was even more special for Tara because her mother had nominated them for the honor just a few weeks before she passed away. Tara’s mother, the dog trainer, who had been such an inspiration to Tara’s search and rescue (SAR) work, offered Tara and Lily the gift of national recognition for all that they do. Lily exemplifies what it means to be a hero dog. She worked tirelessly after the storm to help Joplin begin its recovery. Every step and effort made an impact on Joplin moving forward.

Gladstone Dispatch A9 ANNUAL MEETING

World history, local economy topics for MSBF meeting By Dale Garrison World-shattering events from 100 years ago and recent growth in Greater Kansas City were both topics Feb. 7 during the Midwest Small Business Finance annual meeting. Held at Embassy Suites Kansas City-International Airport with more than 10 0 in attendance, the event featured Dr. Matthew C. Naylor, president and CEO of the internationally acclaimed National World War I Museum. Starting this year, the museum will be the center of worldwide attention during commemoration of World War I. “This is a uniquely Kansas City story,” Naylor said. “In 1914, the world came undone, but when it Contributed photo was over, this city, through Dr. Matthew C. Naylor, left, receives a plaque in appreciation an amazing effort, dedifrom Reuben Siverling, right, and Jim Hampton of Midwest cated this monument to Small Business Finance during the organization’s annual meet- peace.” Naylor emphasized the ing Feb. 7 at Embassy Suites-KCI.

commemoration is not a celebration but will include recognition of how WWI laid the foundation of the modern world. “To commemorate takes our time, but to remember requires our mind,” Naylor said. Through 2018, the museum hopes to bring displays such as an Italian photographic collection considered among the best in the world. Recognized as U.S. Lender of the Year by the SBA, Midwest Small Business Finance assists area small businesses with low-interest capital, including 504 Loans from the Small Business Administration. MSBF President Reuben Siverling said 2013 was a record year, with $6.2 million in loans that have helped build a portfolio of $30 million. “I don’t think a lot of people realize what an asset we have in Midwest

Small Business Finance,” Siverling said. “There are scores of businesses that have been successful with the help of our efforts. They’ve expanded, they’ve built new and they’ve added jobs. We’re proud to be part of that.” The meeting also included recognition of MSBF’s volunteer Board

of Directors. Members include P r e s i d e nt Siverling, Vice President Dean H e n r ic k s e n , Secretary Pete Hall, Treasurer Larry C. Larson, Brad Cole, Susan Cooper, Heath Martin and Tom Pryor. MSBF is at 1251 NW Briarcliff Parkway in Kanasas City.

Ford’s Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo has announced plans to hire an additional 175 employees by March to help build the new 2015 Ford Transit. The company hired almost 1,000 new employees last month in preparation for the launch of the van, which goes on sale in the United States this summer. The new hires put Ford on the top 10 list of Missouri employers, according to a company press release. Just in the past year, Ford has created more than 5,000 new jobs nationwide, building on more than 14,000 Ford jobs in North America in the past two years. The all-new Transit is a line-up of full-size vans that offer best-inclass ownership costs and fuel efficiency. The van has a 45-year heritage in Europe, where it is the best-selling medium commercial vehicle nameplate. The new Transit will offer the widest choice of roof heights, wheelbases and body lengths to maximize flexibility, plus a full suite of onboard features and technologies that are intuitive, easy to operate and designed for business, according to Ford. Transit is one of 16 new North American products — and 23 global products — Ford will launch in 2014, triple the number of new products Ford launched last year in North America. Transit eventually will replace Ford E-Series, which has reigned as America’s best-selling van for 35 years. T he Kansas Cit y Assembly Plant is home of the 2014 F-150 and will begin producing the all-new 2015 F-150 in the first quarter of 2015.
