Many in Lebanon and Laclede County probably know Brian Thompson as the head of the local economic development office, Lebanon REDI, but what they don’t know is most weekends, he works on a completely different kind of business. In his spare time, he works as a pro wrestling announcer, manager and promoter. “On rare occasions, I have even wrestled a match or two mostly unsuccessfully because I’m not a trained wrestler,” Thompson said. Most of the few matches he wrestled in were as a trash-talking manager and he lost. “They bounced me around and used me as piñata,” Thompson said. He sometimes uses a nickname he acquired in high school: IKON. “It was kind of one of those joking things, but then it kind of took on a life of its own. I’ve been the IKON ever since,” Thompson said. In pro wrestling’s heyday when wrestlers were referring to themselves as icons, Thompson told his high school friends he was the icon of Dexter High School. Soon, his coaches were also calling him Icon, and he changed the spelling to IKON. Thompson mostly plays himself. When he adopts his manager persona, he wears colorful jackets to draw the hoto ou te o o hu ho hoto ph crowd’s attention in what is best described as America’s Brian Thompson makes his way to the ring to host an episode of Traditional interactive athletic theater.

The last several years have seen a successful fund raising effort to build a new Lady Ye l l o w j a c k e t S o f t b a l l Stadium and to enlarge and improve the Yellowjacket Tennis Complex. This project is now complete as the teams

are able to compete on the facilities. Only some lightning issues and a concession/press box/restroom facility need to be addressed. Our young people now have six tennis courts to practice and compete on. The complex is first class with a very unique surface. The softball stadium is outstanding

leaving nothing to be desired other than the aforementioned projects. These additions would not have been possible without the help of some local major donors. The pictures below recognize some of those donors. Lebanon, LHS and our athletes are fortunate to have the support of these people and families.

Sponsored by Case IH, Elanco Animal Health and Syngenta, the award recognizes demonstrated ability and outstanding achievements in agricultural business, production, processing or service programs. To be eligible, FFA members must have earned and productively invested $10,000 through a supervised agricultural experience program in which they start, own or hold a professional position in an existing agricultural enterprise. Recipients must also complete 50 hours community

service and demonstrate outstanding leadership abilities and civic involvement. Each recipient of the American FFA Degree receives a gold American FFA Degree key and certificate after being recognized on stage at the national convention. The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth, and career success training through agricultural education to 653,359 student members who belong to one of 78,568 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands The organization is also supported by 225,891 alumni members in 1,934 alumni chapters throughout the U.S.

Study shows dangers in short grazing toxic-fescue pastures MU EXTENSION COLUMBIA – New forage research gives reason to not graze toxic fescue grass too short. The bottom 2 inches of infected grass holds highest levels of the alkaloid causing problems for grazing livestock. The findings guide ways to manage fescue’s toxic impact, says Craig Roberts, University of Missouri Extension forage specialist. The message for herd owners: Don’t allow cows to grub fescue pastures into the ground. Sarah Kenyon reports her

study findings in a h.D. dissertation accepted at the University of Missouri this year. The results will be published in rop Science, a scientific journal. Kenyon, an MU Extension agronomist at West Plains, took grass samples twice per growing season for three years. The first was in April prior to boot stage (seed set) and in October prior to frost. Previous research showed the plants are most toxic after seed set. She found that the most toxic portion is the bottom 2 inches. At seed set the plant is toxic, just not as toxic

or edible. Her findings are new, Roberts said. This will be great help in pasture grazing management. For her study, Kenyon tested fescue owned by Tom Roberts, Alton, Mo., a cowcalf producer. The fescue is grazed and cut for hay. In her studies, Kenyon cut fescue tillers into 2-inch segments from root crown to top. Each layer was analyzed separately by Nick Hill of Agrinostics lab in Watkinsville, Ga. Farmers over the years developed ways to prevent

poisoning. They learned that seed heads and stems were high in toxin. Grazing before seed set or clipping heads reduced toxicosis. Now, farmers will know not to graze down to the root crown, Kenyon says. Leaving a 3-inch stubble reduces problems. The toxic alkaloid, an ergovaline, is found in Kentucky 31 fescue, the mostused grass in Missouri pastures. For years, farmers knew of problems caused by toxicosis. The most serious symptom shows up in winter as fescue foot. The

toxin constricts blood ow to cattle extremities. Ears, tails and feet can freeze. Tails can fall off. The toxin comes from an endophyte fungus inside the plant. Endophyte, the scientific term, means “inside the plant.” It took years for scientists to find the tiny fungus growing between plant cells. Fescue foot often causes lost hooves. That prevents cows from walking and grazing. Results are fatal. Other losses can be serious but obscure. Cows abort or fail to breed. That cuts the calf crop. Calves raised on

fescue gain slowly. Mama cows grazing toxic fescue give less milk. Another symptom is brown hair that won’t shed in summer. Cattle suffering heat stress stand in ponds to cool rather than graze. In horses, the toxin causes foal death at birth. The best way to solve toxicosis is to kill the toxic grass and reseed a novel-endophyte fescue. Plant breeders introduced a naturally occurring nontoxic fungus into new varieties. Novel endophytes protect the plants but aren’t toxic.

DT Engineering owner supports tax reform in interview STEVE SMITH


A Lebanon business owner expressed support for tax reform legislation in an interview with the National Association of Manufacturers publication Shop oor. Jim Sheldon is the owner of DT Engineering, a manufacturing company in Lebanon that produces industrial automation systems. Sheldon’s statements in favor of tax reform were also cited by Sen. Roy lunt in a oor statement on the bill. lunt said, “ hen im was interviewed by the National Association of Manufacturers and asked what tax reform would mean to his company in terms of investment, hiring, growing his business, he just said it means more business.” lunt said Sheldon added that “tax reform will allow him to – again his quotes – reinvest and reinvent, spend more money in what they’re

doing and figure out ways to do it better. Mr. resident, that’s how you compete.” According to the interview, Sheldon said the legislation would bring work back to the US and “increase order rates, inventory, and development. This will create growth for DT Engineering ” He also said the extra funds his company would see would bring security for the business and the employees. “ hat I won’t do with the money from tax reform is get greedy and just blow it ,” he told Shop oor. He said this would help workers by increasing his company’s sustainability. “My company has a philosophy of no lay-offs. Additional funds will help with our sustainability,” he said. “ e want to be a role model to others that it’s not all about the bottom line but that the well-being of employees really does matter.”

From Nov. 24 through Dec. 10 the Springfield Little Theatre will be hosting a play called “Elf, Jr.” Bud Triplett, a Conway High School junior. plays the lead role as Buddy, the elf. “I wanted to be in the play because my family loves the movie ‘Elf.’ We watch it every year. I wanted to do it for them because we love Christmas. I also thought it would be ironic to play Buddy because I am Bud,” Triplett said. He practices Monday through Thursday 7 to 9 p.m. and Sundays 4 to 6 p.m. The show times for Thursdays are at 7:30 p.m., Fridays at

7:30 p.m., Saturdays at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. “I am most excited to perform for a major theatre and get my name out there. It is also exciting to be on the radio and go to big places to perform. During practice, I try to be just funny enough for the other actors to break character. If they do, then I know I am doing a good job,” Triplett said. If you are interested in attending the play, tickets range from $17 to $23 for all ages. “I have a different career path in mind but I plan on doing theatre as a hobby. My motiva-

Dance the night away LOGAN SCHMIDT


On Oct. 20, the Conway Junior High held its first dance of the year. This year’s dance was planned out by the juior high and high school student councils. This year’s dance had a really good turnout of about fifty seventh and eighth grade students. This dance was focused around a costume party. Students and faculty members were encouraged to dress the part for the dance. “Most of the students dressed up. I saw a Whoopie cushion, construction workers, sumo wrestlers, and Alfalfa from Little Ras-


cals,” said English teacher Mr. Larkin, who chaperoned at the dance. The students received various snacks and a drink at the dance provided by the student council members. Eric Mork, an 8th grade student who had a whole lot of fun at the dance with his friends, dressed up as a gigantic green blob. His favorite song that they played was “Thriller”. “It must have looked funny seeing a giant green man dancing to a Michael Jackson song,” said Eric. The 8th grade and 7th graders attended this dance and there are plans in the making for a spring dance as well. The next dance may be 80s themed, Larkin said.

also welcome if you cannot make it to the store or if you would prefer to to help in that manner. For those who are not familiar with the Angel Tree. The Angel Tree is simply a Christmas tree with angel ornaments that have an individual gift written on each angel. People take the Angel and buy the gift written; the gift then goes to the child that ask for that item. To determine what children request for gifts on the tree, teachers and staff nominate children who they think are in need of assistance. After that the families are contacted to see if there is a need. Each child gets needed clothing, a book, and two wants. These Angels embrace students in grades pre-k through 12th grade in the Laclede Co. R-1 District. The purpose of the tree is to help those in need around the holidays.
