Gliding Through the Crowd This barn owl was the center of attention during the Bank of Washington’s “Kids Go Green Day” Saturday, June 16, at its headquarters. Representatives of the World Bird Sanctuary brought several birds of prey to the event. Children also could tour the bank, have refreshments and take home an Missourian Photo. evergreen to plant.

Missourian Wins International Award for Summer Reading Series The Missourian will be recognized by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) this July in Bangkok during the Asia-Pacific Young Reader Summit for its youth editorial project, “One World: Their Story.” WAN-IFRA annually awards World Young Reader Prizes to newspapers that have devised the best project or activity to attract young readers. This year, WANIFRA will award 21 prizes to newspapers and a newspaper printing plant that have found innovative ways to attract young people to the news. The Missourian is the smallest circulation publication to be recognized by the international organization and the only newspaper in the continental United States. Summer Reading The Missourian’s “One World, Their Sto-

ry” was a summer reading series published May through July in 2011. Dawn Kitchell, educational services director, created the series to teach children about similarities and differences between young readers in the United States and Germany. “Last year’s national summer reading theme encouraged global diversity,” Kitchell said. “We saw a unique opportunity locally to give young readers a meaningful learning experience through Washington’s Sister City partnership with Marbach am Neckar, Germany, during its 20th anniversary celebration.” Relationships built through the Sister City partnership helped Kitchell connect with a sixth-grade teacher in Marbach, who in turn found a student in her class whose family was willing to take on the project. The family had three children. The

mother, Martina, was a schoolteacher. The series focused on 12-year-old Flurina and 14-year-old Gregori. “The commitment from the family was significant,” Kitchell said. “Each week I emailed a list of questions on a specific topic. Martina worked with Flurina and Gregori to translate the questions from English to German and they worked together to answer the questions and translate them back to English to return via email. Often, I sent follow-up questions to clarify or learn more on specific topics.” Kitchell then sent photograph suggestions and the family spent several days taking the photographs before emailing the images.

A lawsuit filed by three Franklin County residents, including one candidate for political office, was taken under advisement by a circuit court judge Monday. Judge John Berkemeyer heard arguments from the three plaintiffs — Art LeBeau and Eric Reichert, both of Villa Ridge, and Ron Keeven, New Haven, a Republican candidate for First District commissioner — and County Counselor Mark Vincent. The plaintiffs are alleging county commissioners have no authority to cede signatory power to a single official. The three filed a lawsuit challenging a commission resolution to further refinancing of outstanding certificate of participation bonds. That resolution authorized Presiding Commissioner John Griesheimer to sign documents related to the refinancing process, as opposed to requiring them to be signed by all three commissioners. Vincent said all counties, cities and school districts in Missouri delegate signatory powers in a similar manner, in accordance with RSMo. 432.070. “It is one of those statutes that is so clear, it has never been challenged,” Vincent said during the hearing Monday. He said the lawsuit was the reason the county had to postpone refinancing the bonds. “It potentially could jeopardize our ability to capitalize on favorable interest rates (which would) save the county $4 million,” Vincent told Judge Berkemeyer. In Vincent’s motion to dismiss, he asked Berkemeyer to require a $2 million cash-only bond from the plaintiffs, which would be used to cover any loss of savings the county wished to capitalize by refinancing. Says County Requests Are a Ploy LeBeau called the issue of refinancing a ploy. “They’re using this… to stop three people and the entire county from saying that they can’t cede their authority,” he said. “It isn’t about per-

District Sets Goals for New School Year By Susan Miller

Missouri Staff Writer

Four major initiatives will be undertaken by the Washington School District in the coming year and beyond. Superintendent Dr. Lori VanLeer discussed the goals with the school board at its last work session. The goals include implementation of the new Common Core State Standards, a national education initiative that seeks to bring diverse state curricula into alignment with each other by following the principles of standards-based education reform. “Leadership and staff workshops are being held to prepare for transition to this rigorous curriculum,” VanLeer said, “and a professional learning plan and time line has been established to meet the needs of staff as they work to implement the standards.” Additionally, communication strategies will be developed to educate students, staff, parents and the community throughout implementation of the curriculum, she said, as well as intervention strategies. “An evaluation model also will be established to pro-

sonal vendettas, but every doggone person should follow the doggone law.” LeBeau told Judge Berkemeyer that the men could find no statute or law giving commissioners the power to cede their authority. “We’re simply asking under what authority can they cede their power,” he said. Reichert said the men have repeatedly asked commissioners to “show us the law. “The general consensus is if the county doesn’t have the explicit power to do something, they can’t do it,” he said. Reichert said the lawsuit was “just three men doing their civic duty.” Judge Berkemeyer told LeBeau that the plaintiffs have the burden of providing case law contrary to the commission’s practice. “There may be no way you can force someone to answer your question, no matter who that may be,” Judge Berkemeyer said. Claim County Hiding Something “Responsible, fiscal government would require all three commissioners to sign the document and review

the contracts,” Reichert said. Keeven said delegating the power to sign documents furthering the refinancing of the bonds eliminated the chance for openness. He said if only one person has to sign a document, then there is no need for discussion and therefore no meeting. “There is an issue there hidden (as to) why they’re trying to do it this way,” Keeven said. Vincent said he took offense to Keeven’s claim that the county has something to hide and noted that the original certificates of participation, issued in 2005, 2007 and 2008, were signed by only then-Presiding Commissioner Ed Hillhouse. “It’s false, it’s scandalous and it’s wrong,” Vincent said. “Ministerial functions can be delegated. To only have the authority to sign (a document), that’s ministerial.” Judge Berkemeyer said he would take the motions filed by the men and Vincent under advisement, but didn’t know when he would issue a ruling. About 25 people attended the hearing in Union.

said. A second major goal is the formation of Focus Group 3: Improving Student Achievement and Engagement in the Technological Age. Two other focus groups on student achievement and facilities are already meeting. “Teachers, staff and patrons are all being invited to participate in the new group,” VanLeer said.

Focus Group 3 will meet monthly starting in August. Subcommittees also will be formed and will meet to assist in the development of future technology plans. Another major goal for the district is hiring and retaining high-quality staff, VanLeer said. The administration will continue to study pay schedules, as well as instructional support and training to meet the needs of all staff. VanLeer said it’s important to have a competitive benefit package that is “controlled, viable and proactive.” Continued marketing of the school district and communication with the public in multiple ways also will be important with achieving this goal, she said. “The fourth initiative being undertaken is ensuring safe and efficient 21st century learning environments for students,” VanLeer said. This includes adequate capacity for classrooms and program instructional space through new construction and renovations, she said, with buildings technologically equipped to meet learner needs. Proper maintenance of facilities is key, she added. VanLeer said the district also needs to have facilities that meet standards of the Gateway Athletic Conference.

City Will Start Accepting Credit, Debit Cards Soon By Susan Miller

Missourian Staff Writer

The city of Washington will soon accept credit and debit cards for utilities and other payments. The city council Monday night approved an ordinance authorizing the execution of a merchant agreement between ETS Corporation, Merrick Bank and the city of Washington to process the credit/debit card payments. Mary Sprung, city finance manager, said eventually the city also will accept credit/debit cards for park department programs and activities. “I think we’ll start with the utilities first and then expand it to other departments,” she said. Residents will be able to pay with a credit/debit card at city offices or online. Credit card transactions will not be accepted over the phone however. Sprung said she receives a lot of requests from residents to use credit and debit cards. She estimates between 150 and 200 monthly transactions once the system is in place. The cost to the city, based on that number of transac-

tions, could be anywhere from $175 to $200. But there are many variables, she noted, depending on the type of card used. The city will accept MasterCard, VISA and Discover. Staff training will begin soon and credit/debit transactions will be accepted beginning in October. The contract with ETS Corporation, Merrick Bank will be month to month, Sprung told the council.

worked with Kitchell to create each half-page feature that was published in eight consecutive weekend issues of The Missourian. Special Section Prior to publishing the series, The Missourian produced an eight-page special section with information on the community of Marbach and the Sister City partnership. The section also included details on The Missourian’s and local libraries’ summer programs. The section was included in The Missourian and the newspaper provided 7,160 additional copies to schools and libraries. The Missourian and the Washington Public Library held a Sister City Birthday Party for children before the newspaper series began. The two-hour event was modeled after a typical birthday party in Germany and was held during the Sister City anniversary commemoration when officials from Marbach were in Washington. The mayor of Marbach attended and spoke to the children, which was the highlight of the event. Kitchell anticipated that Washington children would want to ask their own questions of Marbach children, so The Missourian set up an online forum at moderated by a teacher and classroom in Marbach. ‘Easy Decision’ In notifying The Missourian it had been selected for a Young Reader Prize, Dr. Aralynn McMane, executive director, young readership development, World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers, said, “I must say it was a very easy decision for our jury,” which concluded: “This is another of those rare, very original but simple ideas that most any paper could adapt and use, even if they don’t have a ‘sister city.’ We particularly

liked the visuals and informational graphics.” Kitchell said she submitted the project to the international competition for just that reason. “I felt this was a project that could be replicated at any sized newspaper and did a tremendous job closing the global divide,” she said. “The Internet makes it easy to communicate with people in other countries and we can encourage that interaction by showing how similar we all are, regardless of geography.” Sponsors The Missourian’s summer reading program has been supported since its inception in 2001 by the Bank of Franklin County. In 2005, the Washington Town & Country Fair joined the project to offer Fair tickets as incentives to keep children reading throughout the summer. The Washington Public Library became a partner in the newspaper’s project in 2007. This year’s Missourian In Education Summer Reading Program follows the national theme “Dream Big — Read!” The series is now published in weekend editions of The Missourian and highlights biographical children’s books about people who dared to dream big. It encourages children to seek out the featured books in local libraries. A full list of newspapers from 13 countries recognized this year by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) can be found at WAN-IFRA, based in Paris, France, and Darmstadt, Germany, with subsidiaries in Singapore, India, Spain, France and Sweden, is the global organization of the world’s newspapers and news publishers. Support for this year’s World Young Reader prizes comes from Norske Skog, the Norway-based global paper producer.

Property Maintenance Ordinances Amended

The Missourian

12 inches off the ground, rocks or bricks, tin, steel, parts of derelict cars or trucks, broken furniture, any flammable material which may endanger public safety or is unhealthy or declared to be a nuisance. The ordinance states that any junk located on any property, street or highway is a public nuisance and declares it unlawful to create or maintain a nuisance. After a written violation notice is provided, the nuisance should be abated within seven days. Like in the last ordinance, a special tax will be added to the annual real estate tax bill for the property. Abandoned Vehicles A new ordinance approved establishes regulations regarding abandoned motor vehicles, which includes any unattended or unlicensed motor vehicle, trailer, allterrain vehicle, outboard motor or vessel. Vehicles are to be removed or subject to removal from public or private property, whether or not they are operational. The ordinance states that for any vehicle towed from the scene of an accident or at the request of the Washington Police Department and not retrieved by the vehicle owner within five days, the police department is required to write an abandoned property report or a criminal inquiry and inspection report. Vehicles are not to be abandoned on the right of way of any public road or state highway or in any waters in the state or on banks of any stream or any land or water owned, operated or leased by the state, board, department, agency or commission thereof, or any political subdivision thereof or any land or water owned, operated or leased by the federal government or on any private real property owned by another without consent. The police department has the authority to tow motor vehicles from real property that are deemed a public safety hazard or are derelict, junk, scrapped, disassembled or otherwise harmful to the public health.

Two city property maintenance ordinances were amended and a new one was established during the Washington city council meeting Monday night. The changes were made after a council administration/operations committee

meeting where several unsightly properties were discussed. At that meeting, City Counselor Mark Piontek said existing property maintenance codes establish procedures for structures deemed unsafe, unfit for living or unlawful. The previous codes, however, did not authorize building officials to take any action to repair unsightly buildings or clean up debris. Weeds, Trash, Junk The council approved an ordinance repealing a section of city code and enacting in lieu a new section pertaining to weeds and trash. The ordinance states that people may not have grass, weeds or brush over 1 foot in height. Those in violation will be given a hearing within four days of notice that the weeds or trash is a nuisance and order it to be abated within five days. If they are not removed, a special tax bill against the property will be prepared to be collected with other taxes assessed against the property. Anyone who fails, neglects or refuses to cut and remove grass, weeds or brush within five days after the hearing will be given a fine not less than $50 and not more than $500. The violation is deemed to be a new and separate offense for each and every day the condition continues after the fifth business day after the hearing. Another ordinance approved also repeals one part of an ordinance in lieu of a new Chapter 235 of city code. The ordinance refers to junk, which is defined as debris of any kind, weed cuttings, cut, fallen or hazardous trees and shrubs, overgrown vegetation, rubbish and trash, lumber not piled or stacked

Council Approves Second Phase of Rhine River Project By Susan Miller

Missourian Staff Writer

With final plat approval from the Washington City Council, the second phase of the Rhine River townhouses off Front Street can get under way. The council Monday night approved the final plat of the development resubdivision of Lot 11. Developer Andy Unerstall said construction of two four-unit residential buildings on the upper tier of the development will likely begin in September. Those buildings, which will be accessible from Olive Street, will be larger than the townhouses on Front Street. “The upper tier units will be about 3,000 square feet while the Front Street units are about 2,500 square feet,” he said. Unerstall said construction continues on the second set of Rhine River townhouses on West Front Street. Once that work is complete, work will begin on the upper tier buildings. ministrators are putting VanLeer said. “I already have sales pending on four of the “We will be working in upper tier units,” he said.

Unerstall said the upper tier townhouses will have similar architecture to the Front Street buildings. Utility lines in front of the townhouses have been moved underground and utility poles removed to provide unhindered views of the Missouri River for tenants in the development. Many units have or will have one- or twocar garages or carports as well as decks and patios. Units in the first set of townhouses cost between $290,000 and $316,000, Unerstall said. Directly to the east of the townhouses is a proposed 7,000-square-foot commercial building, which Unerstall plans to lease for office or retail purposes. Also, work on remodeling the existing building at the corner of Front and Olive streets continues. Unerstall said the building could be used for retail purposes or a restaurant/bar. The entire Rhine River development project will cost about $7.8 million. Under a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) agreement approved last year, the developer will get up to $900,000 in TIF funds to help develop the property.

Former County Man Found Guilty Of Rape, Sodomy A former Franklin County man who authorities say performed sexual acts with a girl under the age of 12 was found guilty on three counts Friday. A Franklin County jury found Michael B. Falkin, 47, guilty of child molestation, statutory sodomy and statutory rape, according to Franklin County Prosecutor Bob Parks. The jury of seven men and five women returned with the guilty verdicts after 3 1/2 hours of deliberation beginning Friday after 3 p.m., Parks said. He added that sentencing for Falkin is set for July 30. Falkin, who now lives in the state of Kansas, was charged with child molestation, statutory sodomy and statutory rape. Authorities allege that Falkin performed sexual acts with the victim between Jan. 1, 2005, and Dec. 26, 2008.

Michael Falkin The state called eight witnesses to the stand, and there was testimony from two witnesses for the defense team, Parks said. Among the state’s witnesses were the victim and a forensic interviewer with Children’s Advocacy Center of St. Louis. The defense called the defendant and an expert witness to testify.

City to Seek Landscaping Bids By Ed Pruneau

n For Certain Sections of Highway 100

The city of Washington is close to seeking bids to add landscape median enhancements along a section of Highway 100. City Engineer Dan Boyce said a draft bid package is under review by Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) officials. When the initial proposal outlining plans, specifications and cost estimates is returned the city will address any comments from MoDOT and submit a final proposal back to the state agency. Boyce said the “target” date to begin advertising for bids is around the first week of July. A contract for the work must be signed by Aug. 31, under the terms of a federal transportation grant approved for the project. Construction would be

done in the fall. The project includes adding median landscaping along certain sections of Highway 100 between Highway 47 and East Fifth Street/South Point Road as well as additional signage and bike path markings and possibly irrigation work. The preliminary concept of the project includes at least three landscaped median strips with an option to extend one of the strips and another option to add a fourth. Boyce said the entire project, including the alternate areas, will be included in the bid package. The areas where proposed medians with plantings are proposed include: • Far West — from a point west of the JCPenney store for about 750 feet to Washington Heights Drive; • West — from a point east

Patrol Officers Reappointed

The Washington City Council approved the reappointment of three patrol officers during its June 18 meeting. Those reappointed include Darrell Flora, Nathan Pinter and Chad Sloan, whose terms will expire July 7, 8, and 15, 2013, respectively.

east of International/Rabbit Trail for about 1,080 feet to west of Brookview Avenue and the entrance to Phoenix Center II. Preliminary plans call for most of the landscaped medians to be planted with native wildflowers and grasses that can grow from 1.5 to 3 feet tall. There also are areas where 3- to 5-foot-tall shrubs will be planted. Plans also include four maple trees that can grow up to 30 feet tall and 15 feet wide just to the east of the WalMart entrance. The city was awarded a $604,823 grant for the project and the city match is $151,206 in local funds. The council unanimously approved a $69,815.59 contract with consultant, Crawford, Murphy & Tilly Inc., (CMT) to design the enhancements.

n Residents Can Vote for Flower, Tree, Bird

By Karen Myers

Missourian Staff Writer

Leading up to a visit from the America in Bloom judges, Washington’s America in Bloom committee is asking for the public’s help in choosing a city tree, bird and flower. Five choices for each category were selected by the committee, which includes Dave Wehmeyer, Mayor Sandy Lucy and Sally Bocklage. Choices for trees include dogwood, river birch, redbud, red maple and bald cypress. Bird candidates are the cardinal, bluebird, robin, gold finch and hummingbird. Flower choices include the knockout rose, daylily, black-eyed Susan, red hibiscus and purple cone flower. Wehmeyer said the committee tried to choose species hardy in Missouri, as well as select species that were easily recognizable and prevalent in the area so that even children can take part in the contest. “This contest also will serve as a learning tool,” said Bocklage, adding that people can research each of the choices and look at pictures before making their decision. “I think this program is contagious,” Lucy said. “There has been a major impact on the city.” People can vote in several ways. Choices can be mailed to Washington in Bloom, P.O. Box 59, Washington, MO 63090; emailed to washingtoninbloom@yhti. net, or submitted online by visiting the Washington Parks Department website,, and clicking the “America & Washington in Bloom” link on the left side of the page. The deadline for voting is Monday, July 9. Other Projects The committee provided an update on several AIB projects that are in progress. A recent fundraiser “Plant Geek Night” at Hillermann Nursery & Florist, Washington, raised $974.31 for ongoing projects. Money was raised through a $5 admission fee and a silent auction. A total of 91 people attended the fundraiser. The Washington High School FFA provided many plants and flowers for the auction. Two projects will be completed using those funds. A butterfly garden will be constructed at the Washington Parks Department office, behind the Bernie Hillermann sign.

“We’re excited about the garden,” said Dunkle, adding that it was something he and Dave (Wehmeyer) talked about when he first started working at the parks department. “We wanted to add more color to our system. We don’t have a lot of landscaping (in that area),” he said. “This will spruce up the facility and give it a little curb appeal.” The project will not require any funds from the city. The other project that will be completed from the geek night is a garden by the time capsule on the west end of Waterworks Antiques, near the riverfront. With the remaining funds, Wehmeyer hopes to get several hibiscus plants planted by the river. Both projects and the hibiscus planting should be completed before the judges visit. Other projects are in the works, but awaiting funding, Wehmeyer said. Plants Available To help add color to the Downtown Washington area when the judges tour, potted plants are available for Downtown businesses. A total of 25 pots with red and white flowers are available. The Washington FFA grew the flowers and donated them to the committee. YMCA campers helped pot the plants. Pots will be delivered the first week of July. Bloomin’ Shirts The committee also set several “Wear Your Bloomin’ Shirt” days through the summer to promote morale in the city. Those dates are June 27, July 17 and Aug. 16. Shirts are available for sale at the engineers department at Washington City Hall, the landscape department at Hillermann Nursery & Florist, the Washington Parks Department and at Schroeder Drugs. The shirts are $10 each. America in Bloom judges will visit Washington July 16-17. Judges will tour Washington and will judge six categories including floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, environmental efforts, heritage preservation and overall impression. Results of the contest will be announced at a conference at the end of September. This is the second year Washington has participated in America in Bloom. Last year, Washington won the community involvement criteria award. It is a national award and the only one given.

Man Arrested After Crash, Foot Pursuit A Sullivan man was arrested Saturday, June 16, after crashing his motorcycle following a pursuit and then fleeing on foot, authorities said. According to Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke, the 27-year-old suspect was speeding near the intersection of Glaser Road and East Vine near Sullivan when a deputy tried to make a traffic stop. The suspect fled on his motorcycle from the deputy until he crashed the motorcycle near the Flying J Truck Stop. The driver then fled on foot but left his helmet and cellphone at the crash scene, police said. Deputies and Sullivan police officers searched for the suspect who was located crossing a field near Sullivan

Regional Airport. He was taken in to custody by Sullivan officers. The suspect was taken to Missouri Baptist Hospital, Sullivan, where he was treated and released into the custody of deputies. He was arrested for numerous traffic violations, suspected driving while intoxicated and probation violation warrants, Toelke said. The suspect’s name has not been released pending charges, police said.

Appointed to Board William Evans, Grubville, was appointed Tuesday by the Franklin County Commission to the Franklin County Transportation Committee. Evans will represent Prairie Township. His term will end Dec. 31 of this year.

ECC Trustees Approve Leases, Professional Service Agreements Members of the East Central College board of trustees authorized college officials to execute leases for four off-campus locations for the coming year. The action came at the board’s June 18 meeting. The amount paid to lease the Southwest Area Center in Sullivan will remain unchanged. The annual rate paid to Central Markets for the 5,800-square-foot facility will total $20,028 for the new fiscal year. The lease for space at Four Rivers Career Cen-

New Haven Woman Injured in Accident A 21-year-old New Haven woman was injured in a onevehicle crash on Highway 100 west of Highway 185 on Saturday night. The Missouri Highway Patrol stated that Brittany L. Gildehaus suffered moderate injuries in the 10:28 p.m. accident on June 16. The accident occurred as Gildehaus was driving a 2008 Pontiac G6 eastbound on Highway 100. The patrol stated she lost control of the car, causing it to travel off the right side of the road, strike a driveway embankment and overturn. Gildehaus, who was wearing a safety belt, was taken by New Haven Ambulance to Mercy Hospital Washington. The Pontiac was totaled. *** Senior LifeTimes is the only publication published in Franklin County that focuses on senior citizens. It is a Missourian publication.

ter in Washington remains unchanged for the coming year with the college paying $75,000 to the Washington School District. The agreement with the Rolla School District for 8,140 square feet of space at Rolla Technical Center increases to $145,530. The increase is due to ECC’s full-time use of a room that had been shared with the school district in the past. The lease agreement with Phelps County Regional Medical Center for the facility on Bridge School Road that houses the nursing programs in Rolla remains the same for the new fiscal year. The college began leasing the 3,000-square-foot facility in 2007 and will continue to pay $37,120 per year. Trustees also approved the renewal of two professional service agreements effective July 1. Legal services will again be provided by Tueth, Keeney, Cooper, Mohan & Jackstadt, P.C. of St. Louis. Security services will again be handled by Securitas of St. Louis. The rate of $13.93 per hour remains unchanged from the 2012 fiscal

year. Due to the scheduling of upcoming board meetings, trustees also pre-authorized purchases that will need to be made with funds from

state vocational enhancement grants, Missouri Health Wins and the Graduate! St. Louis grant prior to the start of the fall semester Aug. 15.

Construction Engineer Hired for Labadie Great Streets Project The Franklin County Commission Tuesday awarded a contract for construction engineering services on the Labadie Front Street Great Streets project to BFA Inc., Washington. The $64,936 contract is likely one of the final steps before construction can begin, said Eva Gadcke, county highway administrator. The federally funded project is one of four demonstration projects of the EastWest Gateway Council of Government’s Great Streets Initiative. Gadcke said 10 engineering firms responded to the county’s request for qualifications, and the top three were interviewed. The contract will have to be approved by MoDOT. Gadcke said the final plans for the project, which will add green space and on-street parking along the main street in Labadie, have already been submitted to the state. “This is the final piece,” she said. “After this, we should be ready to go out to bid (for construction).” Gadcke said a construction contract should be awarded sometime in late July or August. The project also will im-

prove stormwater drainage and lighting in the downtown Labadie area, with an estimated cost of around $1 million. The county will pay 20 percent of that cost, or $200,000. County officials previously expressed some frustration with the project, as federal requirements have changed as the county moved through the design process. Some of the money used for design came from the federal stimulus act passed in 2009.

East Central Board Approves Bids, Personnel Matters The East Central College board of trustees accepted two bids for improvements to the gymnasium on the Union campus at their monthly meeting held Monday, June 18. The purchase and installation of a new sound system from TSI Technology Solutions of St. Charles was approved at a cost of $23,918. Tech Electronics was the only other bidder on the project. Dr. Jon Bauer, vice president of finance and administration, noted that college employees were not able to determine the exact age of the equipment, but some of the pieces may have been installed when the building was constructed in 1973. “For large events such

Ortmann Earns Marine Honors 28 Years After Dad James R. Ortmann, son of Timothy Ortmann, Labadie, and a 2011 graduate of St. Francis Borgia Regional High School, graduated from U.S. Marine Corps boot camp May 4, exactly 28 years to the day after his father. Both men graduated from MCRD San Diego as honormen, an award given to top-performing recruits in each platoon. James Ortmann was Platoon 3249 honorman. His father was the honorman for his entire company. Timothy Ortmann, who currently works as the head coach of the Borgia high school wrestling program and as an assistant football coach, said Marine officials told him there has never been a father and son both graduate as honormen. James Ortmann currently is attending Air Wing Electronic Communications School in Palms, Calif. Be well informed — Read The Missourian and the Weekend Missourian.

as commencement, the current system is not adequate,” Bauer said. Trustees also authorized the resurfacing of the gym floor by Creative Floors of Winfield, Kan. Half of the money for the $27,470 project will come from the campus improvement fund. The remaining half will be funded with money raised for athletics through the ECC Foundation and by the college volleyball team. The existing maple floor was installed in 1994. “A floor of this type has an expected life of 50 years, and can be sanded and repainted twice during that time,” Bauer said. Bids were also received from TNT Enterprises of St. Louis ($28,461) and Just Around the Corner Flooring of St. Louis ($34,825). The resurfacing project will be completed prior to the start of practice for the volleyball team. Personnel Several personnel matters were also approved at the June 18 meeting. The board accepted the resignation of Brad Bruns, student activities coordinator, effective Aug. 31, and Paula Smith-Culp, instructor of psychology and sociology. The retirement of Cathryn Tiller-Crider, nursing coordinator at ECC in Rolla, also was approved. One full-time instructor was hired. Dr. Suneetha de Silva will serve as associate professor of education/ early childhood education beginning Aug. 8. De Silva earned her bachelor’s degrees from University of Colombo (Sri Lanka) and Trinity College of London (Cambridge University). She obtained master’s degrees from Webster University and University of Phoenix. De Silva earned her doctoral degree in curriculum and instruction: emphasis in early childhood education curriculum from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. She currently is the di-

rector of curriculum assessment and school improvement at the Northern Cheyenne Tribal Schools. Previous teaching experience includes serving as adjunct professor at Chief Dull Knife College, and associate professor at Montana State University and Rocky Mountain College. Stephanie Hebert, an ECC employee in Student Services since 2005, was promoted to the position of coordinator of the Student Service Center. Hebert earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Truman State University. Sarah Havens was hired as coordinator of the Health Careers Transition Program, a position funded through the Graduate! St. Louis and MoHealthWINs grants. Havens earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of MissouriColumbia and a master’s degree from Missouri University of Science and Technology. For the past two years she was a temporary biology instructor for ECC. At their meeting, college trustees also approved the employment of part-time instructors for the summer session.

City Council Endorses Angel of Hope Garden By Karen Myers

Missourian Staff Writer

The Washington City Council gave a thumbs up to the proposed Angel of Hope memorial garden during its meeting Monday night. The garden, which will honor children who have passed away and serve as a symbol of hope for parents, will be built near the Jaycees All-Abilities playground in a wooded area east of the Kohmueller farmhouse. A similar garden is in Blanchette Park in St. Charles. Mayor Sandy Lucy and several council members lauded the project, saying it will be a great addition to the park system. The Washington Park Board agreed to move forward with the project earlier this month. The garden is proposed to be completely privately funded. “This would just be a good place within our parks system where parents can sit and reflect,” said Brian Boehmer, assistant city administrator. “This would be a good asset for our parks.” Betty Werner, who lost her son Todd in a vehicle accident 18 years ago, and is serving on the Angel of Hope committee, addressed the council Monday night. Werner said the garden would provide a private place for families and friends to remember their loved ones. She said most cemeteries in the area are very public and some people may not feel comfortable spending time there. “If I want to go and spend time with Todd and talk with him about something, I have to do that in plain sight around everyone else,” she said. Werner said that since the first article was published in The Missourian, she has received many phone calls of support from people in the community, and the surrounding areas as well. At first, Werner said she thought the memorial garden might be too close in proximity to the all-abilities playground, which is currently under construction. But the more she thought about it, she liked the location because she would be able to hear the laughter of children near by. “It’s a bittersweet kind of a feeling . . . but I’m so joyful that those kids are going to be able to enjoy that park and I’m going to have my little piece of it,” she said. “I’m asking from the very heart and soul of my being that we move forward with this.” Boehmer also asked that patrons who want to be able to make a tax-deductible donation be able to do so through Patrons of the Park, a newly formed 501(c)(3). About the Garden The statue to be purchased is an exact replica of the original Angel of Hope at Salt Lake City, Utah, which was inspired by the book, “The Christmas Box,” by author Richard Paul Evans.

A concept rendering of the garden was shown to the council. It was prepared, at no charge, by Horn Architects in Washington. It features a 28-square-foot patio with engraved brick pavers and four benches. A wrought iron decorative fence runs along the southwest side of the garden, behind the angel statue. A 5-foot-wide walking path would lead up to the memorial with space for more engraved bricks. The bronze angel is 4 feet, 3 inches tall and has a wingspan of 5 feet, 2 inches. The total cost for the angel is $14,500 and a base is approximately $10,200, Boehmer told the council. The statue would be ordered from Richard Paul Evans Inc. and The Christmas Box House International, which receives no profits from the orders. It takes about three months to receive the angel after it’s ordered. Bricks with names of the children or messages inscribed will be sold and placed around the monument. The bricks will cost between $100 and $125. Plain brick pavers would be replaced with engraved bricks as they are purchased. Any additional money raised would be used to maintain the monument and surrounding area. Both Werner and Boehmer said they didn’t think it would be too difficult to raise the money for the project. Council Weighs In Mayor Sandy Lucy called the project a “beautiful idea” and Councilman Steve Sullentrup and Joe Holtmeier also were quick to throw their support behind the garden. “We really don’t have within our parks system, a reflective area like this,” said Councilman Tim Brinker. “I think it’s a great enhancement to our parks system.” Boehmer said park will not center on any religion or have any sponsorship signs or logos. No names will be allowed on signs or benches because they may overshadow the names on the bricks, he noted. “This is just for our kids. That’s all,” Werner said. “I know you’re going to have a lot of support from a lot of families in Washington and surrounding areas,” said Councilman Sullentrup. “I hope you get this done in a hurry. It’s a really nice idea.” Candlelight Vigil Each year, on Dec. 6, communities with Angel of Hope gardens hold candlelight vigils. “We don’t get to do a lot for our kids at Christmastime so this is really special,” Werner said. “I’ve been to the ceremony at St. Charles and it is just wonderful. It allows us to do a little something for our kids at Christmas.” Editor’s Note: There is a children’s memorial garden in Pacific, but it is not connected with the Angel of Hope.

Hope Lodge Open House Saturday Hope Lodge 251 Ancient Free & Accepted Masons, 109 Lafayette St., Washington, will hold an open house Saturday June 23, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Parks Department Magic Camp Set For July 16-20 The Washington Park Department will host a magic camp for children ages 6 to 12 on July 16-20, from 9 a.m. to noon at the park department’s recreation office.

The lodge will be open to the public. This is an opportunity for the public to come see and learn more about what Freemasons are and what they are about. At noon, Hope Lodge will present scholarships to three Washington High School students. At 1 p.m., Freemason Bob Bauer will give a short presentation on “Freemasonry During the Civil War.” Brother Bauer has presented this program at other lodges in Franklin County. Lodges are dedicated to the purpose of “making good men better” and provide the men of the Washington area with opportunities for fellowship, charity, education and leadership. Membership in the lodge

is open only to men at least 18 years of age, who possess good moral character and profess a faith in God. Freemasonry is open to men of all races, colors and creeds. However, a man who is an atheist cannot become a Freemason. Men who are interested in becoming a Freemason are encouraged to attend the open house. To become a Freemason, a man must, of his own free will, ask to join and submit an application called a petition. For more information, contact the master of the lodge at 314-616-1571.

New Map for City’s Major Street Plan to Be Created Missourian Staff Writer

The city’s major street plan was the primary discussion during a recent comprehensive plan steering committee meeting. The major street plan, which is part of the city’s comprehensive plan, is the only plan referenced in state stature, said Dan Lang of the Lang Gang, Inc., the consultant hired by the city to develop the plan. It allows the community to plan its roadway network, including improving and realigning existing streets, or creating new streets for the community. The steering committee is tasked with taking off projects that have been completed since the last major street plan, making sure projects on the plan are still appropriate and determining if there are any

One street with many complaints is Stafford Street, which is eligible for federal funds. Grant funds are secured, but work won’t begin until 2014, Lamb said. Citizen input Two residents raised objections to the Camp Street project, which recently was approved to be added to the city’s budget by the Washington City Council. One citizen suggested that A Roy Drive be named a collector or major street, which he said could cross Highway 100 and collect next to Mike Alan Drive and take traffic off Rabbit Trail. “Roadway projects take a very long time, because they are tied to development activity and funding sources,” Lang said. “Recognize that some of these roads we show in the comprehensive plan might not even be done within this planning period. You want to make sure that you’re continually revising the plan and looking at the community as a whole and making sure that the roads do what they need to do.” Other than Stafford Street, a number of others were discussed in more general terms. Lang read through public participation comments about roads that need improvements in Washington. Traffic signal issues also were addressed, though timing issues aren’t necessarily something that would be addressed in the comprehensive plan but through other means.

new projects. A new map with the suggested improvements will be created and the suggestions will be further discussed and streets added or dropped as the committee sees fit. The plan is expected to be complete by December. The committee also will look at the roadway network outside the city limits. Lang said it’s important to be able to move traffic, to move people through the community and to relieve congestion. During the meeting, Darren Lamb, community and economic development director, presented the basis of the map from the 2003 plan with existing major streets and collector streets highlighted. “We try to get as many federal grants as we can to improve our street networks,” he said. “Any streets that need to be reconstructed, if they fall within (a category) where your federal tax dollars will come back and benefit the city, we want to take advantage of it.” During grant-funded projects, the city typically gets 80 percent of the funds from the federal government and is expected to contribute the remaining 20 percent. Once completed, a list of streets has to be provided to East-West Gateway Council of Governments. Streets can be reclassified as a major or collector street and will then be eligible for federal grants, Lamb explained. Federal funds are generally given to help maintain or preserve streets, rather than to build new streets.

Residents Oppose Annexation At Comprehensive Plan Meeting By Karen Myers

Missourian Staff Writer

Despite being told that the June 12 comprehensive plan steering committee meeting was not to discuss annexation, about 25 residents attended the public meeting and one voiced his opinion about annexation. Dan Lang of The Lang Gang Inc. began by telling the crowd that the session was not to address annexation but added that visitors were welcome to stay. The Lang Gang is the consultant hired to develop the city’s new comprehensive plan. The most recent public input meeting and voting session for the comprehensive plan’s draft goals was held Wednesday, June 6. A total of 172 people returned surveys. Of those, 142 identified annexation as their principal concern, Lang said. “Because this a comprehensive plan, it’s comprehensive in scope. Annexation is one part of that, but quite frankly a very small part,” he said. Parks and recreation, economic development, land use, civic improvement, transportation and other infrastructure focus topics are all components of the comprehensive plan. Just before the transition into a discussion about the city’s street plan, Charlie Schroepfer, who has been vocal about annexation, addressed the committee. Schroepfer suggested that a “no annexation” goal be added to the list of comprehensive plan goals. “A lot of people showed up at those meetings who didn’t want annexation in Washington. I think no annexing in this comprehensive plan is important to the people of this area, not only out of town, but in town,” he said. He noted there is a lot of industrial land that is vacant as well as retail and residential land. “If we annex, what are we going to do to

the people who own these properties? Are we going to put them out of business? We’re going to affect them in a big way,” he said. Schroepfer also brought up one specific goal from the comprehensive plan, calling it a “super major issue” for himself and a large group of people in Washington. The goal was listed in the parks/recreation/open space group and is “to preserve and protect special open spaces resources such as floodplains, wetlands and stream corridors.” “When you put open space on private property you kill the value of that property,” he said. Lang explained that “open space” refers to special open space resources. “We’re talking about wetlands, floodplains — we’re not really talking about pedestrian networking. We’re talking about stream resources and things typically communities are looking to protect,” Lang said. Lang also again explained the purpose of a comprehensive plan. A series of objectives will be formed to meet each goal. A total of 42 draft goals across six different topics were identified. Schroepfer said there was “confusion” through the whole process. Darren Lamb, community and economic development director, said people were confused because they were told the steering committee meeting was an annexation meeting. Steering committee members agreed that people thought the meetings were about annexation. “If the people’s voice don’t count, then why were we invited?” Schroepfer asked. Lang said he values the public input and that their voices were heard. “Whether or not that voice becomes a part of the comprehensive plan becomes the decision of the steering committee,” he said. Lang noted that there will be additional opportunities for public input through the process through two additional meetings.

Test Stations for New County 911 System Are Now Online After years of delays, Franklin County has a fully operational test version of its new computer-aided dispatching system up and running. Interim 911 Director Vince Zagarri told county commissioners this week that county personnel and vendors have five test workstations set up in the old juvenile detention center. Once county dispatchers have been trained to use the new software system, it will be integrated into like operations, Zagarri said. The system was supposed to be operational next month, but the date has been pushed back. Zagarri said previously that the scope of the upgrades has changed since

the county originally purchased the over-$1 million system. Members of the county’s emergency management communications board, which includes fire and ambulance chiefs who use the county’s dispatching center to handle 911 calls, have expressed frustrations with the more than three-year delay in getting the system online. “Everything is going very well,” Zagarri told commissioners. “We’ve got all the right people in the same room.” While certainly the most expensive part of the county’s 911 upgrades, the new CAD system isn’t the only part. Zagarri said the county

Holy Compost it Has Been a Beautiful Spring ... Now it’s All Sun & Games!

completed an initiative to switch to narrower radio frequency bands earlier this year. That cost the county less than $50,000, and met a federal deadline more than six months in advance. Zagarri called the switch, which modified the county’s existing radio network, a frugal move. The county also has fully implemented “Phase 2 cellular placing,” Zagarri said. That technology allows 911 calls from cellphones to be pinpointed to within a few feet.

The Downtown Washington merchants are teaming up to offer a new promotion — Thirsty Thursdays. Seventeen stores will stay open late this Thursday, June 21, from 5 to 8 p.m. for an evening of shopping and sipping. The stores will feature wine, beer and other beverages from area wineries, breweries and distelleries. Representatives from those businesses will be on site as well. This is the first of three events planned now through winter. Downtown Washington Inc. is helping to promote the event and support merchants. The idea for the event came from Jane Arnold, owner of The Art Center, and Cindy Potts, owner of Addi’s. The participating businesses are as follows: IB Nuts & Fruit Too with Augusta Winery; East Main Antiques with La Dolce Vita Winery; MannWell’s Coffee Alley with Blumenhof Winery; The Art Center with Noboleis Vineyards; Addi’s with Pinckney Bend Distillery; H.

Students Tour SIMV as Part of High School Class

Students from Sullivan High School’s World of Work class toured Sheltered Industries of the Meramec Valley (SIMV, Inc.) May 22. Students had the opportunity to see the operations of SIMV, Inc. and learn about potential jobs in the community for post-high school graduates. In the high school’s World of Work class, students are exposed to a variety of work opportunities and learn critical work skills to help them transition from school to work. This school year, students spent time at eight different job sites in the community where they got hands-on experience and could assess their level of interest. In addition, they helped various teachers in the district with a wide variety of jobs. The World of Work class is planning to expand and develop additional work opportunities to prepare students for a smooth transition into the work force and a position that is a good fit. Formed in 1988, SIMV, Inc. provides extended employment to individuals with disabilities. Today, the shop employs 140 co-workers in a variety of jobs. SIMV continues to grow as a result of its expertise in efficiently completing labor intensive projects. Contracting with both large and small corporations in the east central Missouri region, SIMV has become a leadSullivan High School students recently toured Sheltered Industries of the Meramec Valley to view operaer in the custom contract packaging industry; specializing in shrink wrapping, blister packaging, assembly, inspec- tions and learn about potential jobs in the community.

McCoy Completes County Will Have to Her Peace Corps Replace Software for Service in Peru Managing Finances Franklin County officials are looking for a new financial management software system, but they’re still figuring out just how they’ll pay for it. Earlier this year, county commissioners tabled an order seeking bids for new software. This week they took the order off the table and voted to reject it. County Clerk Debbie Door said the county’s current software is supported by a single individual and was purchased at a time when not many companies made software suited to counties. That individual is retiring next year, Door said. A business partner is offering a new version of the same program, she said, at a price of about $35,000, plus

$8,300 a year. “We’ve got about a year to get a program in place,” Door said. The county does have other options, and Door said she wants to seek proposals from qualified vendors. Presiding Commissioner John Griesheimer said one of the other software manufacturers, used by the city of Washington, would charge the county about $250,000 for a new management program. Auditor Tammy Vemmer said the county could free up about $65,000 in its current budget using funds allocated to the information technology department for the purchase of new computer servers, or use funds from the county’s reserves and general fund.

Katie McCoy, 27, of Washington, completed her service as a Peace Corps volunteer in the northern coast of Peru May 9, and returned home to the United States. She hopes to use what she learned as a volunteer to work in international development with a focus on Latino populations. For more than two years, McCoy lived and worked in Reque, Peru, as a small business development volunteer. She worked with a youth group developing vocational training programs and orientation courses. She also developed three community banks, an artisan business for and with young women, and a group of 25 youth HIV prevention promoters. McCoy, a 2008 University of Denver graduate, said the main benefit of her Peace Corps experience has been profound personal growth and learning Spanish. She was one of the 140 Missouri residents currently serving in the Peace Corps. More than 3,069 Missouri residents have served in the Peace Corps since 1961. More than 3,050 Peace Corps volunteers have served in Peru since the program was established in 1962. Currently, 299 volunteers serve in Peru. Volunteers work in the areas of youth development, small business development, health and environment. Volunteers are trained and work in Spanish, and some receive language training in Quechua. About the Peace Corps President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps March 1, 1961, by executive order. Historically, more than 200,000 Americans have served with the Peace Corps to promote a better understanding between Americans and the people of 139 host countries. Today, 8,655 volunteers are working with local communities in 77 host countries. Peace Corps volunteers must be U.S. citizens and at least 18 years of age.

Show-Me State Labor Force, Jobless Data Is Difficult to Analyze Raising more questions than answers, yet again, the state is making it difficult for anyone to analyze the latest scheduled employment data, according to Brian R. Hook of the Missouri Journal. While the unemployment rate across Missouri remained the same last month, the number of employees collecting paychecks plummeted. Nonfarm payrolls fell by 7,300 throughout May, according to a release sent late last Tuesday by the Missouri Department of Economic Development. The jobless rate, meanwhile, held steady at 7.3 percent last month. For this to be possible, the jobless rate does

not need to increase because a person must be actively seeking employment to be counted as unemployed by the government, Hook said. In fact, throughout most of this year, thousands of more people across Missouri have been leaving the labor force than landing new jobs. As Missouri Journal reported, April was the first month this year when the number of new jobs in the state amounted to more than the drop in the labor force. Did the labor force drop in May? As of 6 p.m. last Tuesday, the state had not released the May labor data. This is not the first time the state sent out a release

without providing the data. Missouri Journal has filed Sunshine Law requests in the past to receive the data and filed one again Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. No Response Missouri Journal contacted the department earlier about the data and did not receive a response. It is possible that the state moved the employment data online. Missouri Journal discovered earlier on Tuesday that the department moved the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification filings sometime in the past month, before reporting another round of layoffs, affecting 81 in Kansas City.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Confidence among U.S. builders ticked up this month to a five-year high, an indication that the housing market is slowly improving. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index rose in June to 29, the highest reading since May 2007. It increased from a reading of 28 last month, which was revised down one point from its initial figure. The index, which was released Monday, has risen in seven of the past nine months, suggesting builders are starting to see the seeds of a recovery taking shape after years of stagnation.

Yet, the market has a long way to go. Any reading below 50 indicates negative sentiment about the housing market. The index hasn’t reached that level since April 2006, the peak of the housing boom. In June, builders reported seeing the best sales level since April 2007, according to a separate measure in the survey. Their outlook for sales in the next six months, however, hasn’t changed from May. Cheaper mortgages and lower home prices in many markets have made home buying more attractive. Many economists believe that housing construction could con-

tribute to overall economic growth this year for the first time since 2005. Sales of both previously occupied homes and new homes rose near two-year highs in April. And builders are breaking ground on more homes and requesting more permits to build single-family homes later this year. Jennifer Lee, senior economist for BMO Capital Markets, said that June reading on builder sentiment was welcome news. She said even with recent weak readings on employment, builders’ outlook for sales over the next six months did not decline and foot traffic remained the same.

Urges Extra Caution With Fireworks Due To Dry Weather As families prepare to celebrate the July 4th holiday, State Fire Marshal Randy Cole reminds Missourians that public firework displays put on by trained professionals are always the safest way to enjoy fireworks, and extremely dry conditions this year raise the potential risk of backyard fireworks. “The most exciting and entertaining fireworks displays are always at large public shows,” Fire Marshal Cole said. “The use of fireworks by individuals risks injury to the user and onlookers as well as posing a fire hazard for surrounding structures. This year’s extremely dry conditions elevate the risk that even small sparks created by consumer fireworks can lead to grass and brush fires, which can rapidly spread — posing a risk of wildland and structure fires.” According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, May 2012 was one of the driest Mays on record for Missouri. According to NOAA, the one-year period from June 2011 to May 2012 was the warmest such period recorded for Missouri. The result is an elevated fire risk. Fireworks sales at licensed seasonal retailers are legal in Missouri from June 20 to July 10. State permits

should be displayed at all seasonal retail locations. Missourians who choose to use consumer fireworks should follow basic safety practices:

•  Purchase  fireworks  only from a properly licensed retailer. •  Keep young children away  from fireworks. •  Make  sure  to  have  water  nearby in case of a fire or an accident. •  Always  wear  eye  protection and earplugs if you have sensitive ears. •  Tie  back  long  hair  and don’t wear loose fitting clothes. •  Only light one firework at a time. •  Never  try  to  re-light  fireworks that have malfunctioned. •  Never  have  any  part  of your body over fireworks. •  Never  throw  or  point  fireworks at other people. •  Never  carry  fireworks  in your pocket. •  Dispose  of  fireworks  by soaking them in water and leaving them in a trash can. •  Never  light  fireworks  indoors. •  Don’t  use  fireworks  while  consuming alcohol. •  Store  fireworks  in  a  cool,  dry  place.  Don’t  save  fireworks  from season to season.

ALiter ary ‘Matchmaker’ Abby Schlegl turned her third-grade school assignment into this chapter book.

Potential tutors for the Y Community Literacy Council attended a training session Tuesday, June 12, at Washington Public Library to learn more about the work to see if it is something they would like to do. Leading the training session were Anne Schneider, standing left, program director at Four Rivers Area Family YMCA, and Diane Schwab, standing sec-

ond from left, literacy coordinator. Potential tutors include, front row, from left, Janet Trent, Dodie Costello, Diane Werges, Sue Wehmueller and Dinah Sudholt, and, back row, beginning third from left, Jan Long, Patty Femmer Missourian Photo. and Regina Payne. Training sessions also are scheduled for Fridays, Sept. 21 and Jan. 25.


iane Schwab gets a big grin on her face when people ask her what she’s up to these days, one year after retiring from her work as a reading specialist with the Washington School District. “I’m a matchmaker,” she says proudly. “I match up volunteer tutors with adult reading students.” Back in March, Schwab was hired as the literacy coordinator for the Y Community Literary Council for Four Rivers Area Family YMCA in Washington. Already Schwab has five tutors paired with five adult reading students who are meeting on a weekly basis to improve their reading. And many more tutors are in the process of completing their training so they can be matched with reading students, she said. It was just one year ago that the Y Community Literacy Council was formed, a new name for an organization many people knew as the Literacy Council of East Central Missouri. In 2010, Four Rivers Area YMCA, which offers a literacy program for children birth to age 5 who are served by the Franklin County Health Department, teamed up with the Literacy Council to pool their resources and make literacy efforts here even stronger. Then last year they took that partnership a step further, uniting efforts into one committee as the Four Rivers YMCA Literacy Committee. “This will allow us to expand literacy services and activities to help address additional community needs to make an even greater impact in the community,” Debbie Toedebusch, execu-

By Karen Cernich, Missourian Features Editor tive director at the Y, told The Missourian last fall. “With our combined resources we will be able to support and strengthen area organizations that provide literacy services in our area.” The council includes representatives from literacy efforts offered around Franklin County — Dawn Kitchell, chair, is the educational services director at The Missourian and co-coordinator of the newspaper’s Book Buzz youth literacy program; Toedebusch is involved with the Y’s Beginning Babies With Books program; Patty Kellmann is a retired fourth-grade teacher; Nell Redhage is director of the Washington Public Library; Gretchen AuBuchon Pettet is executive director of work force development at East Central College; Carrie Rufkahr is a member of the Washington Rotary Club literacy committee; Anne Schneider is the Four Rivers YMCA programs director; and Jeff Siebert is with TEMCO, a sheltered workshop in Marthasville. Much progress has been made on the local literacy front since the council was organized last year, said Kitchell, noting Schwab has made great strides in the few months since accepting the job as coordinator. ‘I Know How to Teach Reading’ Schwab hadn’t been retired that long when she realized how much she missed being around other people on a daily basis. So when she came across information about the new Y Literacy Council, she thought volunteering as a tutor would be a good fit for her. When she saw that the new organization was hiring a part-time coordinator, she

realized that might be even more ideal. “I know how to teach reading, and I have a lot of contacts,” Schwab remarked. As a reading specialist for 35 years, Schwab taught remedial reading to students who needed to improve their skills. In her last five years with the district, Schwab served as literacy coordinator, working with teachers and modeling how to be an effective reading coach. Now as coordinator of the Y’s Community Literacy Council where she’s working with both adult tutors and adult reading students, Schwab feels like she’s come full circle. Literacy Not Limited to Reading Schwab said the council is taking a broad approach to solving local literacy issues. Reading students can include people who need help improving their ability to speak English or to improve their reading comprehension, as well as people who are beginning readers. “It’s not just about reading,” she said. “It has to do with listening and speaking too.” Reading students can be adults who need help in preparing for their G.E.D. instruction, adults who need help with job skills or life skills. Schwab has met with staff at both Loving Hearts Outreach and Crider Center to recruit potential reading students and raise awareness of the program. Strong Response Schwab has called on many of her education contacts to recruit tutors and had a good response. Many are retired teachers and people who have worked in education in some respect.

She currently has five trained tutors working with reading students; last week she held a tutor training session for six new tutors who wanted to learn about what was involved in volunteering; plus, she has eight more people who want to take a tutor training session this fall. Training sessions will be held Friday, Sept. 21, and Friday, Jan. 25, both at the East Central College facility in Washington. Schwab is quick to note that attending a tutor training session in no way commits a person to becoming a volunteer. It’s the first step for people who have an interest to see if they think the work will be a good fit for them. “Some have decided, ‘It’s not for me,’ ” she admits. The training session runs about six hours and there is some additional training done online. All potential tutors also must submit to a background check. Tutors are needed from all over the Y’s service area, which includes both Franklin and Gasconade counties, as well as the Washington School District boundaries. Tutors and reading students are matched based on preferences of location, time and day availability, said Schwab. They meet to work one-on-one in a public facility, such as the Y or their local library. More Strides Forward The Y Community Literacy Council recently received a $3,000 grant from Dollar General. It is the second grant the retailer has awarded to the council, said Kitchell. The first grant for $2,500 was used to give scholarships to fund GED testing •See Y Literacy Council 2C

This Local Teen ‘Dreams Big’ And Then Some


he theme for the summer reading programs here at The Missourian and local libraries is “Dream Big! Read,” and one young girl who will be at the Washington library this Sunday, June 24, for an authors event already has a jump on that. Abby Schlegl is just 13 years old, but she hasn’t let her age stop her from making a few dreams a reality. The granddaughter of Glenn and LaVon Schroepfer, Washington, and daughter of Paul and Stacey (Schroepfer) Schlegl, Wildwood, Abby has turned a short story that she wrote for an assignment in third grade when she was 10 into a slim chapter book (ages 6 to 13) that was picked up and published with Cypress Imprints, a children’s division of RoseHeart Publishing). “MerMountain” tells the story of Hallie, a young girl who falls overboard and is turned into a mermaid by magical coral dust. “She meets a golden princess of an underwater city and has adventures with dolphins, sharks and a giant squid,” Abby writes on her website, After turning in the initial story to her teacher, Abby wanted to continue the plot and turned to her mom, who writes romance novels and other stories published through RoseHeart Publishing, for guidance. Working together (mostly over summer vacations), they built up the story, and Stacey did much of the editing work, which is why her name is listed first on the book cover. Stacey sent the story to her publishing company to see if they might be interested in mak•See Teen Author 4C

Annie’s Mailbox

Dear Annie: I am 47 years old, and my mother is 80. I have three grown children and a 7-year-old daughter whose father is not in her life, nor does he pay child support, even though he earns a decent income. I recently have had some personal setbacks. My hours were cut at work, and I had to move out of our apartment because I could not afford the rent. I called my mother and asked her for financial help. She said no because it would mean losing “her family.” I was shocked. I thought I was her family, but apparently not. I am the youngest of four siblings. My father left when I was in my teens, and I quit school in order to get a job. I gave Mom all of my paychecks so she wouldn’t lose the house. I was the only one left at home to keep Mom company, drive her everywhere, be her confidante and help her out. I know my mother does not owe me a living, but all I’m asking for is help until I get back on my feet. My perfectly capable mother gave my older sister control of her finances and says any assistance has to go through “Ellen.” I refuse to ask Ellen whether I can borrow money from my own mother. My siblings just had a surprise birthday for Mom and didn’t tell me. When I asked Ellen why I wasn’t invited, she said I wasn’t acting like a proper daughter. I never get invited to anything — weddings, birthday parties, holidays, nothing. I love my mom, but it feels as if she does not care about me. I am trying to relocate and forget all of them. Still, when my mother needs a sympathetic ear, she calls me multiple times a day. Should I simply cut all ties and not speak to her anymore? Middle-Aged and Underemployed in the Midwest Dear Middle-Aged: You are obviously hurt by your family’s treatment, and we cannot explain why they are so unkind. Since you cannot count on them for help, your focus should be on getting back on your feet and finding a better job. Start by pursuing child support payments.

Contact your state’s Attorney General’s Office for information, and also look into the Family Service Association ( Dear Annie: I have a good friend in her 50s who recently started seeing “Frank.” She seems very happy with him. I found out that Frank posted on his Facebook page something that implies the two of them had sex in a van in a parking lot late at night. Frank still lives with his parents, so I assume this posting could be true. My friend is the type who is very concerned about her reputation. Should I tell her what I saw? Shocked Friend Dear Friend: We assume if you can see Frank’s Facebook page, your friend can, as well, and probably has. (It is unlikely he would block her access but not yours.) What she does with her boyfriend is her own business, and if she objects to the posting, she will tell him. We think you should stay out of it. Dear Annie: This is in response to a letter you posted from Jenny Scala, a director for the professional floral business. I appreciate your giving equal time to different points of view, but I found it rather selfserving that someone who profits from having flowers at a funeral should stand in judgment of the wishes of a deceased loved one who might have preferred donations to charity. Flowers at a funeral are nice, but one or two arrangements are more than adequate. Asking guests to donate is so much more worthwhile than flowers that will wither and die. I wholeheartedly support donating those same flowers to hospitals after the service. Incredulous

Y Literacy Council fees for 46 people. The current grant will continue that effort and also help purchase tutoring materials. The council also recently joined ProLiteracy America, a national nonprofit organization that provides materials and resources, such as a tracking software that will be used by the council to log tutoring hours and student progress. And the Y Community Literacy Council is now included on a national literary directory that will help people find their way to the program, whether they are volunteers wanting to help or reading students looking for support. The Beginning Babies With Books program, which was launched by the Four Rivers Y five years ago, continues to provide books to children attending the Franklin County Health Department. To date they have given out 13,000 books, said Toedebusch, noting a recent $500 grant from Ameren was used to purchase more books. Volunteers for the program also visit the health department three days a week to read books to children in the waiting area, she added.

Volunteers also now spend time reading in the Y’s children’s play area on Mondays. Adult Spelling Bee To help raise funds for the Y Community Literacy Council, the board is planning an adult spelling bee for Saturday, Aug. 25, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Y in Washington. Only adults 21 and older will be allowed. The event will consist of teams of four working together to spell words by writing them out on a sheet of paper. Words will be selected from the Scripts Spelling Bee list and will include beginner, intermediate and advanced words.

The cost will be $10 per person. Teams will be allowed to bring in their own food and drinks, although some light snacks and drinks will be provided. Watch The Missourian for more details as the event gets closer. For more information on the Y’s Community Literacy Council, to find out about being a volunteer tutor or an adult reading student, people can contact Schwab through the Y at 636-239-5704. Most likely, callers will need to leave a message and she will return their call. Visit

First in a Series of Summer Adventures

Our Maplewood mouse spent last week in the country with her PaPa and Mee Mee. It was an adventurefilled five days for 6-year-old Avery, a pert brunette with ivory skin and boundless energy. Avery loves horses and stayed with us so she could attend a horse camp sponsored by Exceptional Equestrians. The camps are offered in various sessions, for beginning to advanced riders — as well as to children with special needs. We expected Avery to enjoy herself, but weren’t prepared for the level of instruction she would receive, and the variety of activities included in the curriculum. The parents and grandparents of the nine other campers were as lavish in their praise of what their children learned as we were. Avery arrived at our house early Monday morning ready to saddle-up in a pink cowboy hat and pink boots, beaming from ear to ear and demonstrating a heel-toe move synonymous with Western “boot and scoot.” She packed everything but the kitchen sink, her “lovie,” a menagerie of stuffed animals, and her American Doll, also decked out like Dale Evans, minus the horse, which cost a bit more than Avery had in her piggy bank. With a hug, and an “I love you, Mom,” we were off to E.E., located on a farm off Highway A between Washington and Union. After Avery was shown to a cubby where she could stash her

lunch and belongings, I watched her walk away, and turned my car toward home feeling like I’d left a small boat on a big ocean. Back at the house, I fired up the computer, and waited for the phone to ring, sure the camp staff would be contacting me about Avery needing a family member to talk to. The call didn’t come — in fact, Avery didn’t even mention missing Mee Mee and PaPa, or wishing she could get back to Maplewood to see her sister, or her parents. “I’m having too much fun to get homesick,” Avery said as the one fun-filled day followed another. When I’d pick her up at 3 p.m., I’d have to put my listening ears on because Avery didn’t draw a breath all the way home. The first day she ran to me wearing her new camp T-shirt — the second day she had a different one on, a T-shirt with a photograph of her standing next to Phantom, E.E’s miniature pony. Of course the children rode. Avery fell in love with Oliver, the Gypsy Vanner, a breed that originated in Great Britain, used to pull gypsy caravans I’ve heard my mother talk about. Avery looked pretty small perched on Oliver’s back — as did all of the children atop their horses; we got to see the campers put their steeds through their paces at a horse show held on the last day in the outdoor arena. Parents, grandparents and others came out in full force to grab a bit of shade

and watch the skills on display. Enthusiasm and applause abounded as the kids walked their horses around the ring, demonstrating “walk on,” turns, trotting, cantering and even riding backward. The most fun was watching the kids try and keep an egg on a spoon as they rode from one end of the ring to the other — not many of them scrambled their attempt. The show was the culmination of a spectacular week of mucking stalls, painting the horses and then washing them off, crafts, games, educational information, nature walks and splashing in the horse trough, something that reduced Avery to hysterical giggles. At the end of the camp, a packet of pictures was given to each of the parents, showing all the activities the children had participated in. In the short span of Monday to Friday, bonds were formed and confidence was instilled. It’s a sure bet Avery won’t soon forget her special week — thanks to the terrific, caring staff at E.E., who launched a new endeavor that’s already become a big hit. Throughout the summer, I’ll feature articles about summer adventures.

Area Students Volunteer at Mercy Hospital Washington On her first day as a hospital volunteer, Karlee Krey, 17, wasn’t thinking about the beautiful weather she was missing or time she could be spending with her friends at home; she was assisting patients in the ambulatory surgery center instead — and loving it. “I’ve been here about four hours. I’ve talked to patients, brought them food, prepped patient rooms,” Karlee listed off some of her tasks, “I want more. I wish I could stay all day.” Karlee wants to work in the medical field as a nurse practitioner. While she will have to wait until her career starts to do complicated

tasks, she and the other student volunteers will amass other types of experience during their time at the hospital. The experience they gain is as varied as the departments they work in and the people they meet. “Hospital volunteering is personally and professionally valuable at any age,” said Mary Salois, volunteer manager. “Student volunteers are at the stage in their lives when they are considering what fields they will enter. For those considering medical careers, they get a clearer idea of the different positions hospitals offer, what’s required of them, and

In addition to writing, she does a lot of original artwork, which she has custom printed on T-shirts and sells as a fundraiser for Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis. Helping others has been a passion for Abby since she fractured her back in a horse riding accident in third grade. Forced to wear a back brace for six months, Abby honed her art talent while she was confined to a bench on the playground at

the rewards of the job.” What student volunteers do and how much interaction they have with patients depends on where they volunteer. Some students are helping with supplies and filling orders or assisting in offices while others are helping in the cafeteria, greeting visitors and answering phones, transporting and visiting patients, or assisting nurses in various areas. “In all of these areas, they learn valuable interpersonal skills and gain job experience they will carry with them for their entire lives, regardless of what careers they choose,” said Salois. “They learn to work

with others and care for others as much as learn how to perform tasks. Some will be truly affected by what they encounter and those things will influence the career decisions they make.” This year’s student volunteer group is 37 students strong with four college students and 33 high school students. They live in Foristell, Gerald, St. Charles, Sullivan, Washington and many places in between. Karlee, from Union, said when people work or volunteer at a hospital, “You’re making a difference. You’re making someone else feel better.”

Father’s Day Baby Baby Madalyn Faith Marie Price was the first baby born on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17, at Mercy Hospital Washington. She arrived at 8:22 a.m. weighing 5 pounds, 3 ounces. She is the daughter of Ashley Price, left, and Angel Faciane, center, both of Pacific. As a gift, the family received a $50 gift card for beef from Franklin County Cattlemen’s Association, which was presented Missourian Photo. by Rudy Ahmann, right.

Humane Society Dog of the Week Hi, my name is Rocket. I am an extremely handsome 10-month-old fellow. I am a lost pet, and I am ready to begin a new life. I will be sure to turn heads wherever we go. I have beautiful golden and black stripes all over my sleek body. I like to think they make me look like a Bengal tiger, ha ha. I am not really big, only

about 45 pounds of bouncing playful joy! I love kids and other dogs. My goal is to be happy while making you happy — what a respectable objective to strive for. I think you should come to the shelter, take me for a walk, throw the ball around a bit and you will see that you will be unable to leave and I won’t give up hope, but without me! hurry. I’ll be here waiting for you Rocket

Humane Society Cat of the Week Hi, my name is Angelica. I am a very pretty and colorful, little, long-haired, tortoiseshell girl. I am really very friendly, absolutely adorable, and a real pleasure to be around. I am a lost kitten of about 6 months. I am the first to give you attention when you come into the room; I will

pat you, greet you with a few soft cat words and then wait for you to notice me. It would be great if you could help me to be in a home filled with love and attention as soon as possible so I don’t waste all of my wonderfulness in a cage. Love, purrs and pats, Angelica

The campout is a nationwide initiative by the National Wildlife Federation to encourage families and communities to reconnect and experience the outdoors. Eight Missouri state parks are offering special programs and activities to make this night one to remember. “The Great American Backyard Campout is a great way for families to get outdoors and enjoy nature, whether you’re an experienced camper or trying it for the first time. Once you’ve experienced your first camping trip, you’ve taken the first step to creating a healthy and fun family camping tradition,” said Bill Bryan, director of Missouri State Parks, a division of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. Activities will vary from park to park and programs range from night hikes and camping demonstrations

Wednesday and the Weekend

Our aim shall always be to promote the best interests of the community we serve. We shall print the news accurately, impartially and without favoritism as far as humanly possible. Editorially, we reserve the right to speak out freely and without fear, and will fight to the limit of our ability to reserve that right for all others.


It’s Very Complicated

he ongoing negotiations for the merger of Patients First with the Mercy health system is a very complicated process, with many details to be worked out. The goal is to try to wrap things up by July 1, but it’s going to take time after that date, if met, to sort out all of the details, administration and operating procedures. It’s probably the most complicated coming together of two enterprises in the history of this area. We don’t know of any other merger in this area that has entailed the multitude of details that would compare to this one. When the old St. Francis Hospital merged with St. John’s Mercy Hospital, it didn’t come close to the details that have to be worked out in this deal. It didn’t compare to what is going on in the current negotiations. There are many legal matters to be worked out, particularly in contracts with doctors and others. How to handle the duplication of services has to be worked out. The merger of cancer services and treatments apparently is going well, with the center now located in renovated space in the Patients First building. Among the other legal matters are lease agreements, the transfer of fi-


Deportation Stay Order

he reaction is mixed to the stay of deportation for as many as 800,000 young illegal immigrants. President Obama issued an order late last week to allow these illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. if they can meet certain requirements. They must be younger than 30 years and have graduated from high school. They also must have no criminal record, must have been brought to the U.S. before they turned 16, and have lived in this country for five consecutive years. If they meet all the qualifications, they apparently will be able to stay and work in this country. The reaction to this presidential order, bypassing Congress, is mixed. Of course, many feel it was a political move in an election year. Others say the order is overdue — should have happened years ago. Those who view it as political say President Obama is taking a risk in this issue but add that he is running out of options since the economy fix hasn’t happened and the rest of his record doesn’t give him much to run on in seeking a second term. His order delighted many Hispanic voters who usually vote Democrat. He


nancial obligations, pending litigation and a number of items. There is the issue of software integration also. That is being addressed. The integration of Pateints First workers into the Mercy system has been moving forward. This involves orientation sessions, in-house town hall meetings and meetings with individuals. This is a huge task. The care of patients during the transition period has been given the highest priority. A huge step toward the merger was taken when the membership of Patients First agreed to the sale of their assets. There has been a positive attitude on both sides during the negotiations. That bodes well for the community and patient care. By combining the strengths of both organizations, the result will be expanded coverage in this immediate area of health care, more efficient delivery of services and treatments and a new spirit of cooperation in the medical community. It’s an exciting time for members of both organizations, and while it will take time to sort out all the details, as long as the positive attitudes prevail, like Jack Buck used to say about the Cardinals, “That’s a winner!”

probably has strengthened his position with them. This move does add to actions taken by the president in bypassing Congress and using his executive powers in making it easier for gays and lesbians to marry, women to obtain birth control and opening the closet door for gays in the military. A Republican spokesperson said Obama’s deportation stop order for some illegal immigrants is more of his pandering, “patently political and self-serving.” The decision by Obama does enforce the feeling many people have that the president governs geared to being re-elected. However, the economy is on the minds of most voters. Many of the actions he has taken are aimed at people who probably would support him anyway. Is he fearful he is losing ground with them and must shore up his support? In the meantime, political eyes are focused on the U.S. Supreme Court, which could make its decision on Obamacare any day. These are anxious days for the president and all Americans. Coming in an election year makes the decision even more critical. We await the reactions to the decision.

Editor’s Notebook

By Bill Miller Sr.

Not Broken Beyond Repair . . .


ver the years we probably disagreed with former U.S. Sen. Jack Danforth more than we agreed with him. He was known as the conscience of the senate and many people, including us, admired him for that trait. There was no question about his honesty and his quest for good government. In a speech last week in St. Louis, Danforth said government is broken. He was speaking at the Fourth Annual Danforth-Eagleton Lecture Series before the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis. Eagleton also was a U.S. senator. They were from opposite parties. Danforth is a Republican and the late Eagleton was a Democrat. They were friends. They agreed more often than they disagreed on the basics of what is good government. The

pair may not have been the best U.S. senators Missouri ever had, but they were effective. One thing they had in common was the bent to compromise on some major issues. agleton was in the Senate before Danforth, who was elected partially because he rode the tails of an environmental movement to kill proposed dams in the Meramec Basin program. That plan called for U.S. Engineers’ dams on the Bourbeuse and Meramec rivers in Franklin County. Eagleton supported the dams. When Eagleton saw that Danforth was elected by opposing the dams, he switched horses in mid-lake. The dams, which would have meant much to the economy in the county, were killed by a Danforth-Eagleton coalition. Many of us didn’t like that.


Danforth also was a major player in the give away of the Panama Canal. That infuriated Franklin County Republicans. Back to Danforth’s broken government statement, which is echoed by many people. We prefer to say government is damaged but not beyond repair. But many of the things Danforth told the lawyers, we say, “Well said.” Danforth asserted today in Congress compromise is a dirty word. He believes the situation is worse today than it was when he and Eagleton served together. he Lawyers Weekly and its stable of legal publications reported Danforth as saying: “Here I think is the rub. Politics is the art of compromise, and in today’s climate compromise is not tolerated. Hence, for Republicans the rise

The Banality of Watergate Kathleen Parker

WASHINGTON — Forty years ago, all of America learned the name of a particular condominium, hotel and office complex along the Potomac in the nation’s capital. “Watergate” has been irrevocably tattooed on the national psyche, the story so familiar that only the very young need a primer. For most, the very name Watergate is synonymous with government corruption and the uniquely odd and criminally paranoid 37th president of the United States, Richard M. Nixon. To members of a certain generation, it is a where-were-

you-when question. Where were you during the Watergate hearings? For those over 50 or so, the answer likely is “glued to the television.” The Watergate hearings were great TV not only because of the content of the investigation but also because of the characters. Two consistently spring to mind — Sam Ervin, the colorful North Carolina senator who oversaw the Senate hearings. And Maureen Dean, the gorgeous blond wife of then-White House counsel (and now-ubiquitous) John Dean. Many will confess that the ethereal Mo, who wore her platinum hair

pulled back into a tight bun and sat like a sparkling hallucination in a battlefield of wounded men, was as mesmerizing as the testimony. This past week has been filled with reunions of various remaining characters, including Dean (but, alas, not Mo), and not least, of course, the forever-famous “Woodward and Bernstein,” (Bob and Carl), the two Washington Post reporters who brought the story to light and whose names have themselves become institutionalized, thanks in part to the movie based on their book, “All • Continued on Page 9C

The Growth of Solid Waste

assing through the desk was a publication titled “Waste & Recycling News.” We couldn’t miss the headline that said, “Study Sees Global Trash Avalanche.” The story was a warning about the growth of solid waste. The story reported that the World Bank researchers have predicted “a staggering increase” in municipal solid waste in the next 13 years and beyond. The study said municipal solid waste will increase from 1.43 billion tons per year to 2.42 billion tons per year in 2025. The cost to deal with the increase is expected to double to $375 billion annually. It is clear that cities will face a challenge in waste management in the future even more than today as it already is costly to deal with. Collecting and hauling waste to a landfill, where it has to be managed also, is costly. Landfills have to meet governmental environmental requirements that can add to the cost. Landfills fill up and other sites have to be sought. We are amazed at the solid

waste that is along streets and roads — set out for collection. Households generate an incredible amount of waste due to people’s lifestyles. Almost everything we purchase creates waste. We have a question every time we take the plastic bags filled with waste that we place at the edge of the street. How can two people generate that much waste in a week? When the grandchildren visit, the more bags we set out. The same situation exists in millions of households across the country. When you add the commercial and industrial waste, along with the residential, the waste is mind-boggling. Will the lack of landfill sites lead to other ways, or places, to dispose of waste? Such as burning it? Recycling helps and is a growing business. We see no end of solid waste and while it has always been a problem, the challenge in the future is going to be much greater, and we’re going to pay more to rid ourselves of the trash generated by our way of life.

“History does not repeat itself, but it often rhymes,” said Mark Twain. Observing the uprising in Syria, the atrocities, the intervention by rival powers, it all calls to mind the Great Rehearsal for World War II, the Spanish Civil War. The war began in 1936 with an uprising in Morocco of Spanish Nationalists against a Madrid regime seen as antiCatholic, Marxist and Trotskyite. Vladimir Lenin had predicted that Spain would be the second Soviet republic in Europe. The war would last three years, with Joseph Stalin providing aid to the regime, Benito Mussolini sending troops to fight on the side of Gen. Francisco Franco and Adolf Hitler sending his Condor Legion. The bombing of Guernica by the Legion, commemorated in the famous Picasso painting of that name, would be regarded as the great war crime of the conflict. Yet Guernica was child’s play compared with what was

Dress Rehearsal For a Mideast War? to come with the Blitz, Berlin, Dresden, Tokyo, Nagasaki, Hiroshima. The Nuremberg Tribunal would wisely rule out terror bombing of cities as a war crime for which Nazis could be prosecuted and hanged. As America has declined to intervene in Syria, FDR declared neutrality early in the Spanish Civil War, outlawing any sale of weapons to either side. In 1936, as the Spanish war erupted, FDR spoke for his country: “We shun commitments which might entangle us in foreign wars; we avoid connections with the political activities of the League of Nations. ... We are not isolationists except insofar as we seek to isolate ourselves completely from war.” America emphatically agreed. Today, it is the bitter fruit of Iraq and Afghanistan that explains our reluctance. Then, it was 116,000 American dead in places like the Argonne

and Belleau Wood — which had produced a Carthaginian peace at Versailles and set the table for Hitler — that had left us with ashes in our mouths. Two battalions of American volunteers did go to Spain to fight on the side of the regime. In 1947, veterans of that “Abraham Lincoln Brigade” would be put on the Attorney General’s List of Subversive Organizations. In Spain, the struggle was ideological and religious — Nationalists and Catholics against socialists, communists and anarchists. In Syria, too, it is religious — the Alawite Shia regime of Bashar Assad battling an uprising centered in the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood. A Variety As Europe in 1936 contained democracies, dictatorships of the fascist and authoritarian right, and a Stalinist left, today’s Middle East contains democracies, monarchies and dictatorships.

Proud to Be a Military Family To The Editor: Thank you to The Missourian for printing the story on my husband, SFC Charles Wickes, in the June 6 edition. I would like this opportunity to say thank you to my friends, family and neighbors who continue to support our family when Chuck is supporting our state and country. This month he celebrates 19 years of military service.

The first years were fairly uneventful, but since 2003 he has been called up for Iraq twice, but deployed only once. He provided flood duty multiple times, supported law enforcement during snow storms, gone south for hurricane relief, built roads for border patrol and is now in Central America building a medical clinic. I have seen my husband

grow as a husband, a father, a soldier and now as a leader in those 19 years. Although there are days when the girls and I miss him, we are very proud to be a military family. Thank you for always making the military members in our community an important part of the news. Christine Wickes Union

No Respect for Funeral Procession To The Editor: I am writing about my witnessing one of the most selfish acts ever displayed by mankind. After attending a very moving and emotional funeral Mass of a family member at Our Lady of Lourdes Saturday morning, the funeral “travel cade” proceeded to the St. Francis Borgia Cemetery. All cars in the procession had their headlights and flashers on. Myself and passengers were in about the 10th car behind the hearse and had maybe 20 cars behind us. We were heading west on 14th

Street turning into the driveway of the cemetery at about 11:15 a.m. I couldn’t help but notice the pulsating nudging of an eastbound car as we entered the driveway of the cemetery. This car that was occupied by a middle-aged man and what appeared to be a preteen daughter, then darted through the gap between our vehicle and the next to proceed to the interment. The disrespect of this act has troubled me greatly. The day before Father’s Day this (I presume a father) has showed his daughter that his

time is much more important than showing respect to a grieving family in a funeral procession. I would bet the following day, “Father’s Day,” this man’s day went just the way he wanted. He probably made sure of it! P.S. To the women of the community, ask your husband if he was going east on 14th Street Saturday morning at 11:15 a.m. because he more than likely doesn’t have time to read of the Tea Party and the the paper. demise of Bob Bennett and John Smreker Dick Luger (in the Senate) Leslie


God-Hating Liberals Are All Alike To The Editor: Separation of church and state? All right. All parents who pay out of pocket to send their children to a school where they teach about God shouldn’t have to pay property taxes to a public school where God has been banned and made illegal. What if the commissioner had prayed to mother earth or Allah? Would you or the American criminal liberties union have raised such ha-

tred and vitriol? No way! You God-hating liberals are all alike. The first thing you do when you move to this area is try to change us. This is a conservative Christian community. If you tree-hugging, mother-earther, grass-kissers don’t like it in this community then get out. There are plenty of areas in this country that hate God and country. Go find one. And since you

are throwing Bible verses around like you know what you’re talking about, here’s one for you; Matthew 10:32-33; “If anyone declares publicly that he belongs to me, I will do the same for him before my Father in heaven. But if anyone rejects me publicly, I will reject him before my Father in heaven.” What Jesus were you talking about Ms. Atchly? Tracy Dering Washington

Maintain What We Have; No Expansion To The Editor: As a local individual who has functioned as a career financial executive, I am appalled at the proposal for the school board to again be asking the voters to sign a blank check and support additional spending for schools at a time when most everyone in the community has been required to cut back on their spending and living standards. The majority of the families represented by the children attending these schools have been affected either by unemployment, underemployment or fixed cutbacks in their incomes. In a recent USA Today article, it was published that the overall population is growing at its slowest rate since the mid-1940s. William Frey, a demographer at the Brooking Institute, states, “We don’t foresee a youth boom anytime soon.” Census data released confirms that the youth population is shrinking for the first time in a generation. With a reducing forecast, where’s the need to spend for expansion? It makes sense to address funds to maintain our present structure, but to keep spending on additional expansion

just doesn’t seem proper in these economical times. Sounds like a “spend and tax program.” Sound familiar? When you talk about getting the voters involved so they better understand the purpose of again submitting the tax increase, where’s the news releases explaining cuts and reductions the school has accomplished with these tough times? A high percentage of families have all had to do some belt tightening with the increased costs of gasoline and food items just to stay even. I’m quite sure you and your appointed committees are aware that funding is generated from taxes on appraised values of our homes. There is no property on the books that would sell for what they calculate our taxes on. Ask any professional real estate individual. They refuse to adjust the appraised numbers to real values because of the reduced amount it would generate. Then true dollars available would have to be taken into account. What programs have been reduced or eliminated to adjust to school operating rising costs? Has

any of the staff, teachers or support personnel taken a reduced pay adjustment, cut or freeze with the increased costs affecting the schools? I don’t think so, I haven’t read about any such measures. In fact, just the opposite. I would like to see a monthly report in the paper identifying the particular cuts and reductions being implemented. The voters need to read justifications before more tax and spending is applied. Maybe then, we could anticipate a true balanced budget of operations for our school programs. When you get serious about truly addressing bare-bones existence as most of us have had to do, then the voters will begin to listen and can make a decision to support something sensible. This is not the time to resubmit your “dream” plan for a tax increase bond issue. The vote is and should be no thanks. Let’s maintain what we have, keeping in mind today’s economic levels that are affecting all voting families. Washington Resident Editor’s Note: Name withheld per request.

About the Health Care Mandate To The Editor: Once again the fate of the American people is out of our hands. It is being scrutinized by the Supreme Court; I refer to the National Health Care proposal for all Americans, supposedly the richest country in the world. Yet there are those in Washington and around the country, although having the health care for them and their families paid for by the people, they now tell us, this proposal is too big and too expensive and there should not be a “mandate” to force the people to buy insurance. The ones hollering the most are the ones who a few years ago supported with approval of the pharmaceutical companies a “mandate” on the prescription drug program.

Medicare has been in effect for over 70 years. It has and continues to be the most successful medical program for the people in this country. As we become eligible and sign on for it, we paid into the program, all our years of employment there was a sum taken from each paycheck, that could be looked at as a “mandate.” Then we retire and again a cost is taken from each paycheck. This year it is $99.60 per month that could be considered a “mandate.” That begins after each participant pays a yearly onetime deductible of about $150. Could that be considered a “mandate”? I urge the people as they take the proposal for their consideration to think about the proposals already imple-

mented, with approval ratings, from the low 70s to the high 80s. When the present proposal was given to Congress, I watched on television. The speaker of the House, as he and a reporter walked down the hallway, he pulled his taxpayer-supported and paid for by the people his plastic card of his health care and stated this is not free for us.

It’s Coercion, Not Freedom of Religion To The Editor: I am supporting Mitt Romney for president because I believe he will support freedom of conscience or freedom of religion for the American people. Obama and HHS have gone too far by requiring that every employer or their health insurance pro-

vider must pay for contraceptive and certain drugs that cause abortion. Since most Catholic organizations are self-insured, that means the health insurance provider is a Catholic organization. So, the requirement for the health insurance provider to pay for contracep-

tive and certain drugs that cause abortion becomes the responsibility of a Catholic organization. This is certainly contrary to Catholic principles. This is not acceptable. It is coercion, not freedom of religion. Jim Moranville Labadie

. . . When we reward politicians who refuse to compromise, we make effective government impossible. We violate the highest traditions of the country.” That reminded us of hearing former Sen. Bob Dole say, “The best legislation that has passed is bipartisan.” Danforth, the lawyer, also said: “The purpose of the law isn’t endless, fruitless combat. It’s peaceful resolution of differences,” adding, “Strong opinions and positions are still possible but we shouldn’t worship them.” Danforth said the only way to fix this country is by compromise. He called on both parties to compromise on major issues. The Republicans must move off their stance on “no

new taxes” and Democrats must agree to substantial changes in entitlement programs. We couldn’t agree more when Danforth said what America needs is another voice. “It’s the voice of the political center that we must rebuild. It’s a voice that must demand to be heard again. It’s a voice that must shout to politicians of both parties: Enough of this! Get on with the work of government.” Middle road Republicans and Democrats have surrendered to “all or nothing” radicals. *** Correction: In our Weekend Editor’s Notebook, we stated the Washington School District voters had rejected the bond issue twice. That is incorrect. It was rejected by voters once. We regret the error.

the President’s Men.” Much debate has centered on the meaning of Watergate. For their part, Woodward and Bernstein, sharing a byline for the first time in more than three decades, recently wrote in The Washington Post that Watergate really represented five overlapping wars that Nixon was conducting — against the anti-Vietnam movement, the news media, Democrats, the judiciary and history itself. Nixon was a criminal to be sure, even if he never quite saw it that way. He broke the law, was willing to bribe, burgle, wiretap, lie and extort for political gain. Somewhere along his dark path of consuming paranoia, he lost any flicker of light to help him see that he was lost. Woodward and Bernstein say that our allegiance to the adage that the cover-up is always worse than the crime is misplaced in Nixon’s case. Beyond the obvious, Nixon and the Watergate episode did great, perhaps irreparable, harm to the American spirit. A generation already traumatized by a war that ended up killing 58,000 of its brothers, boyfriends, husbands and fathers lost any remaining innocence, as well as trust in authority and faith in governmental institutions. The flag our forefathers raised on the moral high ground looked suddenly shabby and soiled. No Trust When even the president of the United States was willing to burglarize the American people, there was no one left to trust. Adding insult, the entire episode was a cheap suit, sleazy and banal. Could the greatest nation in human history really be driven to a constitutional crisis by a bungled, third-rate burglary? Not incidentally, Watergate also created something else of significance — the celebrity journalist and a generation of wannabe Woodwards and Bernsteins. Those of us who found our way to news-

rooms all wanted the big story, if not necessarily the movie with attendant fame and fortune. What most realized rather quickly was that journalism was more like laying bricks than leaping tall buildings. Deep Throat was just a disgusting porn flick and The Big Story was more likely a city council debate over tax millage rates. We couldn’t all be Woodwards and Bernsteins, it turned out, but the presumption of corruption and government as the enemy was a pervasive, defining force in newsrooms across the nation. And this force in turn helped shape a relentless cynicism that persists today even as it morphs into something else. And what is that? Hard to say, but a country without faith or trust in its institutions — from the presidency to Congress to the judiciary and even to the once glorious, swashbuckling, truth-seeking press — is going to have a rough go of things. As seems to be the case. Given the spoils of what took place on June 17, 1972, at the Watergate office building, Nixon was no petty thief. He was a grand larcenist. Whether we can recover those stolen goods — nothing less than America’s promise to itself — is Watergate’s true legacy and it is punctuated with a question mark.

Basques fighting for their own causes in Spain, in Syria today are Kurds, Druze and al-Qaida with their own rival agendas. As America and Britain stayed out of the Spanish Civil War, so today America and Britain have stayed aloof from Syria’s conflict. As the Spanish Civil War exposed the impotence of the League of Nations, Syria’s conflict is exposing the paralysis of the United Nations, when permanent members of the Security Council like Russia refuse to authorize the kind of intervention they did in Libya. As the Spanish republic received moral and material support from Moscow, today Moscow sends attack helicopters to Damascus, while Turkey provides sanctuary for the resistance, and Saudi Arabia and Qatar provide weapons. Russia and Iran see Assad’s Syria as their last strong, reliable ally in the region. Syria’s ports on the Mediterranean are open to Vladimir Putin’s navy. And Putin’s militaryindustrial complex has long sold the Assad family the weapons to fight its wars and crush rebellions. If Assad’s regime were to collapse and the Muslim Brotherhood come to power, Russia would be virtually out of the Middle East. Iran would be almost isolated. Had we not overthrown the Sunni regime of Saddam and brought the Shia majority to power in Baghdad, an Iran without Syria would be an Iran without a major ally across the region. The first peril in the Syrian conflict is that it could become a civil war in which not just 10,000 die, but scores of thousands perish. A second danger is that as Syria contains Sunni, Shia, Druze, Kurd, Arab, Christian — indeed, mirrors the Middle East — a Syrian civil war could become a proxy war for all in the region, beginning with Lebanon. Third, as Syria is aligned with Iran in the conflict with Israel and with Russia on the world stage, greater powers may come to see themselves as having a vital stake in how this war ends, and intervene, each in its own way, to assure a favorable outcome. The Spanish Civil War ended in Franco’s victory in 1939 and ended well for the Western democracies that had not intervened. When Hitler, after occupying France in 1940, met with Franco to ask permission for the Wehrmacht to cross Spain to attack Gibraltar, Franco said no and put troops in the Pyrenees to enforce his decision. Unlike Mussolini, Franco remained a nonbelligerent in the world war, returned U.S. pilots who came down in Spain and agreed to a postwar alliance with the United States. Non-intervention in the Spanish Civil War worked out just fine.

Racial Double Standards thugs attacked him, taking all of his belongings.

Martin O’Malley and other activists demanded that McDonough apologize for talking about “black youth mobs.” Unprovoked Similar episodes of unprovoked violence by black thugs against white people chosen at random on beaches, in shopping malls and at other public places have occurred in Philadelphia, New York, Denver, Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, Los Angeles and other cities. Most of the time, the race of the attackers, euphemistically called flash mobs, is not reported, even though media leftists and their allies are experts in reporting racial disparities in prison sentencing and the alleged injustice of the criminal justice system. Racial double standards are not restricted to the political arena and crime reporting; we see it on college campuses and in the workplace. Black people ought to be offended by the idea that we are held accountable to lower standards of conduct and achievement. White people ought to be ashamed for permitting and fostering racial double standards that have effects that are in some ways worse than the cruel racism of yesteryear.

Evening at the Museum To The Editor: Last Tuesday evening we attended a free Evening at the Museum featuring the life and times of Ralph Gregory, a Washington-born centenarian and principal founder of the Washington Historical Society and Museum. Mr. Gregory is blessed with an incredible life full of ac-

complishments and achievements. Most importantly, at 102 he’s still contributing to Washington and to the world. Thank you, sir, for your incredible gifts. The most important things I learned from you were keeping a positive attitude, a good sense of humor, and

the strong desire to continue learning no matter what one’s age or station in life. Thanks to everyone for an inspiring evening. We are so fortunate to know Mr. Gregory and be members of such a worthwhile entity. Kat Shaw Washington

Republicans Want Food Stamps Cut in Big Farm Bill WASHINGTON (AP) — The 1,000-page “farm bill” being debated in the Senate is somewhat of a misnomer. Four of every five dollars in it — roughly $80 billion a year — goes for grocery bills for one of every seven Americans through food stamps. Republicans say Congress could cut the cost $2 billion a year by just closing a pair of loopholes that some states use to award benefits to people who otherwise might not qualify. “This is more than just a financial issue. It is a moral issue,” says Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., one of several Republicans pushing for cuts in spending for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as SNAP. The program has swelled from 28 million to 46 million participants and its costs have doubled in the past four years. The recession and slow recovery have increased the number of people unemployed over the same period from 8 million to 12 million. The Agriculture Department credits the program with keeping about 5 million Americans out of poverty every year. Before 2004, people received paper stamps or coupons worth $1, $5 or $10. Since then, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Island and Guam have moved to debittype cards that allow recipients to authorize transferring their benefits from a federal account to retailer accounts. Democrats led by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York are resisting a proposal by Agriculture Committee leaders in both parties to trim a modest $250 million from the program each year by cracking down on abuses.

They say that would deprive about half a million households losing an average $90 a month in food aid. The Republican-controlled House, which has yet to write its own farm bill, is certain to demand greater food stamp cuts, too. Finding common ground with the Democratic-led Senate could be key to whether Congress can pass a 1,000-page bill that also makes fundamental changes in farm subsidies before the current legislation bill expires at the end of September. Sessions points out that the federal government now spends twice as much on food stamps as it does on fixing the nation’s roads and bridges, and that SNAP is now the government’s second-largest federal welfare program, following Medicaid. To qualify, households, except those with elderly or disabled members, must have gross incomes below 130 percent of the poverty line. The Agriculture Department, which runs the program, says the average monthly benefit per person as of last November was $134.15. As for helping the economy, it calculates that each dollar in benefits generates $1.72 in economic activity, including 16 cents for farmers who grow the food. While critics such as Sessions say the program is ripe for savings, the department says SNAP is doing a good job of eradicating fraud and error, with only 3 percent of payments in 2010 being excessive or going to ineligible households. The Senate last week rejected an amendment by Rand Paul, R-Ky., that would have saved $322 billion over 10 years by cutting it $45 billion a

year and turning spending decisions over to the states. The vote was 65-32 against, with 13 Republicans joining every Democrat in opposing it. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, DMich., who chairs the Agriculture Committee, said the Paul amendment was “outrageous and would go completely against the commitment we as a country have made to help those who truly need it.”

Woman to Serve Time for Racially Motivated Crime KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A western Missouri woman who admitted taking part in vandalism aimed at getting a biracial man to leave a mobile home park will go to prison for more than five years. Federal prosecutors said 43-year-old Teresa Witthar, of Independence, received a 63-month sentence Monday from U.S. District Judge Dean Whipple. Witthar and two Independence men were accused of entering the man’s mobile home in June 2006 and writing at least 15 racial slurs on the walls. The home was hit by arson a few days later. Witthar pleaded guilty in February to conspiracy, obstructing justice and violating the federal Fair Housing Act. Co-conspirators Charles Wilhelm and David Martin, both in their 20s, have also pleaded guilty and will be sentenced next month.

U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill Stand Up for Rural Missouri A column by U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill; Billy Thiel, president of the Missouri Corn Growers Association; and Larry Purdom, president of the Missouri Dairy Association. *** Folks in Missouri won’t find it surprising that a lot of people in Washington, D.C., just don’t get what it means to be from rural America. But an important debate happening right now in the U.S. Senate gives us a chance to bring that perspective to Washington — to strengthen resources for family farms and ranches in our communities, to support jobs and reduce the deficit, and to show some Missouri common sense to the leaders of Congress. This week, the Senate continues debate on the Farm Bill — a huge undertaking every five years that affects American jobs and agriculture in every state and every community in the country. This legislation touches every American family and business. And as this debate continues, we plan to work together to protect crucial resources that enable Missouri’s crop producers to man-

age risk and Missouri’s dairy farmers to cope with high costs — resources that ensure our country has reliable access to safe and affordable food. We also plan to work together to fight any nonsense rules and regulations that would hurt our farms and ranches in Missouri. It’s a lack of rural perspective that led some bureaucrats to propose last summer that local producers should be required to have commercial driver’s licenses to drive their equipment on roads in their own communities. Then the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) started reviewing possible rules for “nuisance dust”— a category that could include simple farm dust from unpaved roads and everyday farming activity. And very recently, some bureaucrats in Washington came up with an idea for new child labor rules that could prevent our kids and grandkids from helping out on family farms and ranches. Talk about out of touch. That lack of perspective threatens Missouri agriculture, and a way of life that stretches back generations. That’s why — in each of those cases — we worked to-

gether to put a stop to each of the proposed rules and regulations. The Farm Bill is an opportunity to address challenges facing our rural communities, on issues that include shoring up resources for family agriculture, guarding against unreasonable regulations, keeping Farm Service Agency offices open, strengthening rural broadband access — and most importantly, supporting agriculture jobs and businesses across the country. The Senate’s version of the Farm Bill also reduces the national deficit by more than $23 billion in a responsible, bipartisan way. Families who make their living off the land face unique challenges and opportunities that people in Washington might not understand. But coming from rural Missouri, we do understand — and we carry Missouri values with us in this debate, including hard work and compromise. That’s the kind of perspective we need to tackle these issues. And in the coming days, we hope to see strong bipartisan support for a Farm Bill that meets the needs of Missouri’s families.

Security at the Franklin County Courthouse is perhaps as tight as it has ever been as a first-degree murder trial is held on the third floor. For the first time in the county’s history, a walkthrough metal detector is being used just outside the courtroom door. Plans for three building projects were moved forward by the Washington School Board this week. The projects include roofing and sheet metal work at the high school and construction and renovation work at Clearview and Campbellton elementaries. All of the projects are being financed through the bond fund supported by a 43-cent tax increase approved by voters last March. The Washington Volunteer Fire Department opened bids on a new headquarters building that will be built on 14th Street. The building cost estimate is $1.2 million. The building will have more than 21,000 square feet on two levels. A 5-year-old Sullivan girl drowned this week in a swimming pool at Lost Valley Lake Resort on Highway ZZ in Gasconade County. The girl apparently drowned in about 5 feet of water after shedding her life jacket and jumping in. The girl was at the resort on a camping trip with a church group from Victory Christian Center, St. Clair.

In a somewhat unprecedented move, the Washington City Council Monday voted to endorse the state transportation issue that will be on the ballot in August. A report on the status of the new Highway 47 bridge over the Missouri River at Washington was given to the Washington City Council Monday night by Bill Straatmann, chairman of the Franklin County Transportation Committee, and an advisory member of the city’s transportation committee. A volunteer ombudsman at Cedarcrest Manor nursing home has been relieved of his duties for expressing concerns about conditions at the facility to a state representative. After considerable debate and over the objections of two members, the Washington City Council Monday night approved a request to rezone more than 11 acres of a new residential subdivision for duplexes. This weekend, more than 1,100 Franklin County residents will walk together in the Relay for Life event to raise money and awareness for the Ameri-

Romney. Liberals won’t actually come out and say that criticism of Obama is in and of itself racist, but they come pretty close. Former President Jimmy Carter said that criticism of Obama shows that there is an “inherent feeling” in America that a black man should not be president. Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” said that critics of Obama are crackers. Morgan Freeman said that the campaign to see that Obama serves one term is a “racist thing.” Former Obama czar Van Jones said that Romney’s campaign sign “Obama Isn’t Working” implies Obama is a “lazy, incompetent affirmative action baby.” Racial double standards also apply to how crime is reported. I’m betting that if mobs of white youths were going about severely beating and robbing blacks at random and preying on black businesses, it would be major news. News anchors might open, “Tonight we report on the most recent wave of racist whites organizing unprovoked attacks on innocent black people and their businesses.” If white thugs were actually doing that, politicians would be demanding answers. Such random attacks do happen, but it’s blacks preying on whites. On St. Patrick’s Day in Baltimore, a 19-year-old white man was viciously attacked by a mob of black thugs. He broke loose, but a second mob of black

News From

By Walter Williams Back in 2009, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said we were “a nation of cowards” on matters of race. Permit me to be brave and run a few assertions by you just to see whether we’re on the same page. There should be two standards for civilized conduct: one for whites, which is higher, and another for blacks, which is lower. In other words, in the name of justice and fair play, blacks should not be held accountable to the same standards that whites are and should not be criticized for conduct that we’d deem disgusting and racist if said or done by whites. You say, “Williams, what in the world are you talking about?” Mitt Romney hasn’t revealed all of his fall campaign strategy yet, but what if he launched a “White Americans for Romney” movement in an effort to get out the white vote? If the Romney campaign did that, there’d be a media-led outcry across the land, with charges ranging from racial insensitivity to outright racism. When President Barack Obama announced his 2012 launch of “African Americans for Obama” ( watch?vBdjoHA5ocwU), the silence was deafening. Should the same standards be applied to Obama as would be applied to Romney? The answer turns out to be no, because Obama is not held to the same standards as

Pre-Pays $3 Million, Political Ads

Sen. Claire McCaskill has bought $3 million of TV advertising time for the final month before the November general election, the AP reported. McCaskill’s campaign said Tuesday that the Democratic senator paid for the advertising in advance in order to get the maximum amount of time for her money — assuming that prices may rise closer to the election. McCaskill will face the winner of an Aug. 7 Republican primary between businessman John Brunner, former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman and Congressman Todd Akin. Brunner has been spending his own money on TV ads during the Republican primary campaign.

Post 218 Juniors Reach 20 Wins

Washington rallied to an 11-7 win over the host St. Peters squad Sunday. “It was a bit of a wild one, but we were able to pick up another big district win in extra innings,” Kleekamp said. On Monday, Post 218 won at Warrenton, 9-2. Kleekamp said clutch hitting has been there for Post 218 in recent games. “The approach of our hitters has really improved over the last few weeks,” Kleekamp said. “We need to continue to build on that and put even more runs on the board. We have to be able to put teams away early if possible. You cannot let any team in the Ninth District hang around. Every team is capable of putting a rally together and have the ability to fight back and bite you.”

Weekend Camp Means Football Season Is Near We got a reminder over the weekend that football season is just around the corner. The Seventh Annual East Central Football Camp took place Friday and Saturday, which was held locally at Borgia and St. Clair. Parkway West, Ft. Zumwalt West and Ft. Zumwalt East also were hosts for the camp, which was started by coaches Dale Gildehaus of Borgia and Jeff Duncan of Parkway West A total of 32 high school football teams participated in the event, eight teams at each venue. I saw each of our area teams play at one point over the weekend. Those teams were Borgia, Washington, St. Clair, Union, Pacific, Owensville and St. James. There were definitely a few things that stood out. First of all, we’re going to have some good quarterbacks in our area this fall. Competing in the camp were seniors-to-be John Baumstark of Borgia, Luke Hasenjaeger of Washington and Kyle Juergens of St. Clair. All three of those quarterbacks looked really good. Moving the ball was not an issue for the Knights, Blue Jays or Bulldogs. A pair of sophomore-tobe quarterbacks stood out as well. Those would be Union’s Blake Hulsey and Pacific’s Cory Parrish. “We have some exceptional football players in our area. Just look at four quarterbacks right off the bat — John Baumstark, Luke Hasenjaeger and the two kids at St. Clair and Union,” Gildehaus said. “Baumstark is a heck of a quarterback. He makes Borgia’s whole team go. He reminds me of Matt Scheible and Justin Hinni (former WHS quarterbacks) with his ability to be another tailback in the backfield. Luke • Continued on Page 3D

For a day, the Missouri Cyclones football team returned to Warrenton. And playing Saturday at Black Hawk Middle School against the Evansville Enforcers, the Cyclones dominated in a Great Midwest Football League victory, 4818. Still, there’s plenty of room for improvement, according to Head Coach Troy Robertson. “We’ve got a long way to go if we want to get back to where we were last year (playing in the national championship game),” Robertson said. There still is a long way to go with growing up. Thankfully it’s a 12week season.” Robertson said there are positions open on the team for the remainder of the season. Interested players should come to the team’s practices during the next two Wednesdays at Laurel Park in St. Peters (181 Driftwood Lane). “I just want to get my team back,” Robertson said. “We’re going to make some As Keenan Miller of the Missouri Cyclones jumps over Evansville’s Ray Everhart, changes in practice.

Alden Talks SEC at Mizzou COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri athletic director Mike Alden has a message for Tiger fans: The looming move to the SEC requires a sizable increase in private giving for the school to compete in its new conference. Alden spoke to members of the Tiger Quarterback Club, a football booster group, at a new $5.6 million gymnastics facility and dance studio. He used the new building as an example of the finan-

cial commitment Missouri expects to make when it joins the Southeastern Conference on July 1. Alden told the donors that “it’s going to take all of us to step up.” Missouri plans to unveil a long-range plan to improve its athletic facilities later this month. The plan requires approval by the university’s Board of Curators, which next meets later this month, June 26-27, in Columbia.

Bourbon, Mo. (I-44 • Exit 218)

For one weekend in the middle of June, it was football season in the area. The Seventh Annual East Central Football Camp took place last weekend. A total of 32 high school football teams participated in the event, which took place at Borgia, St. Clair, Parkway West, Ft. Zumwalt East and Ft. Zumwalt West. Coaches Dale Gildehaus of Borgia and Jeff Duncan of Parkway West began the camp seven years ago and still run it. “It was a tremendous success for everyone. All of the coaches felt like they made progress. It gave them a chance to evaluate their kids,” Gildehaus said. “We had officials to control things, the weather cooperated and there were no serious injuries. I’d love to have a couple more JV teams to give those kids a chance to play more. We had a good crowd and the Little League made money running the concession stand.” Four schools hosted eight teams for controlled scrimmages both Friday and Saturday. Area teams participating were Borgia, Washington, St. Clair, Union, Pacific, Owensville and St. James. “It was good to play against some of the area teams. We were a little short on bodies, but the kids we had did a good job,” said Washington Head Coach Zach Schneider. “Defensively, we struggled against the pass, but I was pleased with how we defended the run. Teams spend so much time working on their passing game. It can be tough to defend, especially this time of the year. I thought our passing game was very good.” Borgia played against Washington in a jamboreestyle scrimmage Saturday night at Borgia. “It was very competitive against Washington. It was almost like a midseason game,” Gildehaus said. “We found out that we don’t have

any depth on our line. Washington is looking for linemen, too. Our younger kids realize they have an opportunity to play. Nobody wins or loses jobs, but they find out what they need to work on between now and when practice starts in August.” Led by their respective quarterbacks, Borgia’s John Baumstark and Washington’s Luke Hasenjaeger, both the Knights and the Blue Jays had success moving the ball in the scrimmage between the two teams. “Baumstark is good. We know that. He made plays,” Gildehaus said. “Luke Hasenjaeger is a great young man who has a lot of talent. I wished him luck at the end of the night and told him that I hope he’s the secondbest quarterback in the area next season.” Schneider was pleased with how the Blue Jays competed. “Borgia is a great team, and I felt like we played right with them,” Schneider said. “On Saturday, we were 12 for 15 on our drives. Borgia stopped us twice and Berkeley stopped us once.” Gildehaus was impressed with all the teams playing at Borgia. “Pacific was impressive. They had 42 kids. George (Hinkle) is doing a great job. Union did very well. They have a talented quarterback (Blake Hulsey) who has a great arm. It was great to have Owensville there for the first time,” Gildehaus said. “We saw the wishbone with Salem. We saw speed with Berkeley and St. Mary’s. Berkeley had a running back who was fast as heck. Their coach said their best back wasn’t even there. He’s competing in track meets all over the country this summer.” Schneider had similar thoughts on the other teams. “I was most impressed by Pacific’s kids, maybe because it was a little unexpected. Their quarterback (Cory Parrish) made all of his passes. George said his team is pretty young, so they have a bright future,”

Schneider said. “Union is young, but they have a quarterback loaded with talent. He’ll make their offense work. Union is a team you won’t want to play late in the season once they get everything worked out with a new quarterback and a new coach.” St. Clair did not play at Borgia because it hosted action both Friday and Saturday. “We had St. James, St. Mary’s and Berkeley in our session Friday and Christian, Lutheran North and Gateway Tech on Saturday. There were some good matchups on Saturday,” said St. Clair Head Coach Cody McDowell. “It’s very early. Every team is still trying to figure things out. Teams had some players missing for various reasons. We were missing four or five starters.” The Bulldogs have plenty of speed and talent as well, led by quarterback Kyle Juergens. “Five of our first six games this season are away, so it won’t be easy,” McDowell said. “The good thing is that we should have our biggest senior class since I’ve been here, which is good. Some of our seniors already are showing great leadership, which is something we’ll need.” Many of the larger schools played at Parkway West, Ft. Zumwalt West and Ft. Zumwalt East. “I saw a lot of great teams. There really wasn’t a bad team,” Duncan said. “Teams like Ft. Zumwalt West, CBC, Waynesville and Webster stood out to me. Jackson had 77 kids. Brent (former Union coach Brent Eckley) is doing a really good job. He’s already put his stamp on that program. We competed well the first night against Zumwalt West, Jackson and Waynesville. We were sluggish on the second night. This camp is about seeing which kids can compete and who is going to help the team. It was a good experience.”

Washington Witnesses Race Across America Lead Change By Bill Battle

Missourian Sports Editor

Race on! The tightest competition since Race Across America (RAAM) started coming through this area highlighted the Washington passage of the solo male (under 50) leaders Monday afternoon. Reto Schoch, a 34-yearold resident of Speicherschwendi, Switzerland, was the first to reach Time Station 34 at Revolution Cycles, coming into the station at 4:57 p.m. (CDT). While there, Schoch’s crew used the Revolution Cycles facilities for bike repairs. Owner Joe Ferguson also earned praise for the pool put up in front of the store used by those following or working the race. But before he was able to

have worn out their welcome.” It was a brief return to the town the team called home for the past two years. “Drew DeManuele, who has been our host there, did a great job, the best with what he was given,” Robertson said. However, the team is dedicated to its current home, Washington, and will come back for its final three home games there later in the summer. Upcoming Games The Cyclones (2-1) hit the road Saturday to play the Eastside Justice Saturday at Little Devil Football Stadium in Belleville. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. And July 7, the Cyclones play on the road again at Parkway Central High School against the River City Eclipse. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. The next home game, to be played at Borgia, will be July 14 against the Illinois Blitzing Cowboys. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. Enforcers Game After losing to the Midwest Chargers June 9, 1510, the Cyclones were eager to bounce back with a win. “I felt the running game was going good and then we went away from it,” Robertson said. “The passing game could be better. I don’t think the quarterbacks and wide receivers are on the same page. We’ve had wrong routes leading to interceptions.” And that started with the opening kickoff, squibbed to Washington’s Evan Brinker. The return set up a 32yard touchdown pass from starting quarterback Mike McMullen to Jason Boyd with 11:35 to play in the first quarter.

in danger of being passed by the first team to reach Washington. Team Beau & Babe, a 60-69 two-person mixed team, reached Washington at 6:20 p.m. That team passed Strasser during the evening and arrived in Effingham at 5:29 a.m. Tuesday morning. Overnight, the following teams arrived at Time Station 34: • Trix Zgraggen, solo female (under 50) leader; and • Gerhard Gulewicz, solo male (under 50) third place. One team, the Forever Young Pac Masters, was scheduled to arrive around noon Tuesday. Most of the rest are on time to arrive Wednesday with the final arrivals coming very early Thursday morning.

they were with Pacific. “The biggest surprise of the camp — Pacific,” Gildehaus said. “Pacific was impressive.” “I was most impressed with Pacific’s kids,” Schneider claimed. “I know Coach (George) Hinkle is tickled with the numbers he has.” I’m not predicting Pacific to win the Four Rivers Conference. St. Clair, Union and Sullivan will have something to say about that, but the Indians cannot be taken lightly. The third thing that stood out was Class 4 District 3, and how loaded it will be. Remember, we have a new playoff format beginning for the 2012 season. Instead of a four-team district that advances the top two finishers to the playoffs, schools have been placed into eight-team districts. The exception is Class 5, where most districts consist of six teams. The top seed in each district will play the No. 8 seed in the first round, which is week 10, No. 2 takes on No. 7, and so on.

The single-elimination district playoffs will be played over three games with district champions advancing to the state quarterfinals. Class 4 District 3 features Borgia, Union, St. Clair, Pacific, Sullivan, Ladue, Westminster and Priory. “There’s definitely a lot of talented teams in our district,” said St. Clair Head Coach Cody McDowell. “Our district is loaded, holy cow. When the district assignments first came out, who would you think might be the No. 8 seed? Probably Pacific. After watching them play over the weekend, it just makes the district that much stronger,” Gildehaus said. “Football is getting better in our area and that’s good to see. We know that Union, St. Clair and Sullivan are good. Ladue, Priory and Westminster all will have good teams.” Washington won’t exactly have a walk in the park in Class 5 District 4 either with Rolla, Camdenton, Waynesville, Lebanon and Smith-Cotton.

has really stepped up his game and also has taken a leadership role for us,” said Washington Head Coach Zach Schneider. “Pacific’s quarterback can run and throw the ball. He was impressive. I told Coach (Cody) McDowell at St. Clair that Pacific is a team to watch out for. Union is young, but they have a quarterback loaded with talent. He’ll make their offense work.” Sullivan did not compete in the camp, but the Eagles also will return a senior quarterback in Adam Tiefenbrunn. The second thing that stood out to me was the Pacific Indians. Pacific had 42 players at the camp, which was awesome to see. In recent seasons, the Indians have struggled to have 40 kids during the actual season. And the Indians had some game. Parrish is going to be a very good quarterback. He was right on the money with most of his throws. Gildehaus and Schneider both went out of their way to say how impressed

Evansville’s punter Jamison Buck had been hurt in the first half, one of a number of players who suffered ankle or foot injuries during the game on the old rough field, and the Enforcers were forced to use a different kicker in the second half. Problems with a punt gave the Cyclones the ball again in good field position. “We’ve got a lot of injuries on defense right now,” Robertson said. “Two of our starting linebackers are out and Skye Buckner-Petty is hurt, too. We had to use one of our defensive tackles on the offensive line because we weren’t getting the job done.” However, a five-yard run by Jones was wiped out on a holding call and a fake field goal attempt didn’t work

Schoch arrived at 7:54 p.m. followed by Strasser at 11:58 p.m. As of 7 a.m. Tuesday, Schoch held the lead at Time Station 37 in Effingham, Ill. Schoch reached that point at 5 a.m. while Strasser followed 58 minutes later. Both solo riders were

Tyler Straatmann, Birk and Harrison each had two runs. Kleekamp, Katzung, Aaron Meyer, Schoenfeld and Ruediger scored once. Katzung drove in four runs while Kleekamp had three RBIs and Birk and Schoenfeld each had two RBIs. Harrison drove in one run. Seitter drew two walks. Birk and Meyer each walked once. Schoenfeld and Harrison doubled while Birk tripled. Kleekamp added a sacrifice. Birk and Meyer were hit by pitches. Peter Coulter was the winning pitcher, allowing three hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out two. “Pete Coulter got the start on the mound and delivered another quality outing,” Kleekamp said. “He shut out O’Fallon and was extremely economical with his pitchers. Over 60 percent of the pitches he threw tonight were strikes.” Sullivan Post 218 jumped on top with six runs in the second inning and added single tallies in the third and fourth frames. Washington ended it with two runs in the sixth. Post 218 outhit Sullivan, 7-2. Sullivan committed four errors to Washington’s one. Harrison went the distance, striking out 10 Sullivan batters while allowing two hits and no walks. “Teddy Harrison got his first start of the year for us,” Kleekamp said. “Teddy normally is a relief pitcher for

us, but with all of the games we had throughout the weekend, we had to have him start against Sullivan, and he didn’t disappoint. Teddy had a great game retiring 10 batters in a row at one point. He kept Sullivan runners off of the bases the majority of the game, which kept us off the field and out of the heat.” Scott Byrne led Washington with two hits. “He was able to put some good swings on the ball today and was an integral part of our win,” Kleekamp said. Birk, Katzung, Meyer, Schoenfeld and Brian Trigg each had one hit. Byrne scored three runs while Trigg ended with two. Seitter, Coulter, Birk, Katzung and Schoenfeld each scored once. Katzung drove in a pair. “Sam Katzung continued his solid season offensively with two more RBIs,” Kleekamp said. Birk and Meyer each had one RBI. Seitter, Coulter, Birk and Byrne each walked twice. Trigg walked once. Byrne doubled and Katzung tripled. Schoenfeld was hit by a pitch. Schoenfeld and Trigg stole two bases apiece. Seitter, Coulter, Meyer and Byrne each had one stolen base. North The second home game of the day against North went all seven innings. Post 218 scored one run in the first and four in the second. North tallied its run in the third, but Washington added two more aces in the bottom of that inning. Washington added a run in the fourth and another in the sixth. Post 218 outhit North, 11-3. North made all four errors in the game. “The boys were able to battle the heat as well as a quality pitcher to get our second win of the day,” Kleekamp said. Katzung and Coulter each had two hits to pace Washington’s balanced attack. Seitter, Kleekamp, Birk, Meyer, Schoenfeld, Straatmann and Harrison had one hit apiece. Birk and Coulter doubled while Coulter also tripled. Katzung, Coulter and Schoenfeld each scored twice. Seitter, Kleekamp and Straatmann scored once. Birk and Straatmann each drove in two runs. Kleekamp, Coulter and Schoenfeld drove in one run apiece. Seitter, Birk, Meyer, Coulter, Schoenfeld and Straatmann walked. Seitter, Kleekamp, Birk, Coulter and Harrison stole bases in the game. Ruediger was the winning pitcher, going the distance. He allowed one run on three hits and four walks while striking out seven. “Grant Ruediger led the way for us in game two,” Kleekamp said. “He really was good on the mound today

St. Peters took the lead with one run in the fourth and another run in the sixth. In the seventh inning, things got wild. Post 218 scored four runs to take a 6-4 lead, but couldn’t hold on as St. Peters tied it in the bottom of the seventh, 6-6. “We went into the top of the seventh inning down 4-2, and were able to rally to take a 6-4 lead,” Kleekamp said. “The big blow came from Pete Coulter who smacked a double into the left center field gap to bring around two runs giving us the lead.” In the eighth, Washington scored five times to go up, 116. However, St. Peters wasn’t done, scoring once in the bottom of the inning. Each team had six hits in the game and made four errors. Walks played a huge role in the game. Washington batters walked 14 times while St. Peters drew nine walks in the game. Katzung and Trigg each had two hits in the game. Kleekamp and Coulter posted one hit each. Katzung and Coulter each doubled. Seitter, Kleekamp, Katzung and Coulter each scored twice. Birk, Meyer and Harrison scored once. Katzung drove in four runs while Coulter added two RBIs.

Seitter picked up two hits and a walk. Luke Knight added an RBI single. “We continued to hit the ball well,” Kleekamp said. “The only downside of the game was that we left a lot of runners on base.

Zach Pointer got one out. “Tony Helfrich started on the mound and breezed through the first four innings,” Gardner said. “The game was very spirited and both benches were not shy about making their presence known. I think we handled it pretty well, we just could not make a few plays during the game or throw enough strikes at the end.” Jackson Post 218 concluded the weekend with an 8-4 loss to Jackson. Washington scored first, getting a run in the bottom of the first inning. Jackson took the lead with three runs in the second.

After starting the season with eight consecutive wins, the Washington Post 218 Senior Legion team ran smack into a brick wall this past weekend. Washington (10-5, 9-1) dropped four road games Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, Post 218 lost twice in Elsberry. In Ninth District action, Post 218 lost to Elsberry, 4-3. In a game against 10th District opponent Manchester, Post 218 was shut out, 4-0. On Sunday, Washington lost twice in Festus. In a rematch of last year’s state championship series, Post 218 fell to host Festus, 7-6. And in the second game, Washington lost to Jackson, 8-4. “We really need to find a way to play better defense,” said Post 218 Manager Mike Gardner. “We are just not putting together a complete effort. It seems that when we do play good defense we don’t get the timely hits to score enough runs. Our pitching has been sold for the most part. Our team overall is a little younger than last year and we just need to keep working to consistently put forth the effort it takes to win at this level. I am really encouraged with the way we have played in most of our games and I think our kids learned that we have what it takes to beat the better teams in the state.” Washington returns to action Wednesday in the Post 218 Wood Bat Tournament. Elsberry Post 218 dropped its first Ninth District game of the season Saturday afternoon in Elsberry, 4-3. “We just were not able to put together enough quality at-bats to get some timely hits to drive in runs. We had runners in scoring position on several occasions with less than two outs and could not come up with the big hit. Their pitcher really did a great job in pitching out of jams.” Elsberry took the lead in the opening frame, 1-0, but Washington tied it in the fourth with a run and took the lead with two more runs in the fifth. Elsberry got one run back in the bottom of the inning to make it 3-2. In the sixth, Elsberry scored twice to take a 4-3 lead. Washington could not score again and the host squad won the game, 4-3. Elsberry won despite committing seven errors in the game to Washington’s two. Elsberry outhit Washington, 7-6. Dustin Howard and Matt Jones each had two hits for Post 218. Batters with one hit each were Grant Eckelkamp and Trent Leimkuehler. Eckelkamp, Jack Kopmann and David McNeal each drew walks. Leimkuehler, Kopmann and Howard scored the runs. Dilan Bollmann ended with one RBI. Noah Borgerding and McNeal chipped in with sacrifices. Sam Deschenes and Howard stole bases. Brendan Kleekamp suffered the loss, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks over 7.2 innings. He struck out seven. “Brendan Kleekamp started on the mound and pitched a very good game,” Gardner said. “Unfortunately he made one bad pitch to their four hitter and who took advantage of it hitting a home run down the very short left field line.” Leimkuehler recorded the final out. Manchester Post 218 ran out of offense in the second game of the day, a seven-inning non league

contest against Manchester in Elsberry, losing 4-0. “We did not respond well to the loss to Elsberry and were just plain flat against Manchester,” said Gardner. “We did not play good defense and were not able to string any hits together.” Manchester scored all of its runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. Post 218 managed five hits in the game to six for Manchester. Washington also committed three errors to none for Manchester. Washington’s hits came from Eckelkamp, Deschenes, Leimkuehler, Jones and Austin Rettke. Leimkuehler had the only extra-base hit, a double. Rettke also was hit by a pitch while Deschenes stole a base. Brendan Feldmann pitched five innings, allowing four runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks. He struck out five. “Brendan Feldmann pitched and deserved a better effort from his teammates as he certainly pitched well enough for us to win the game,” Gardner said. Jones pitched the final inning, striking out one. After heading north on Saturday, Post 218 went south on Sunday to face Festus and Jackson in another three-team event in Festus. Festus It had all of the excitement of last year’s Missouri Senior Legion State Championship series in Sedalia. Unfortunately for Washington, it had the same result. Festus Post 253 won the game, 7-6, scoring in the bottom of the eighth inning to complete the game. “After a disappointing day on Saturday we came out with a great attitude and really took it to Festus early in the game,” Gardner said. “Unfortunately our defense was not up to the task when the going got tough.” Washington took the early lead with two runs in the third and single tallies in the fourth and fifth innings. Festus rallied to take the lead in the bottom of the fifth with five runs, 5-4. Washington bounced back with two runs in the top of the sixth, but Festus tied it in the bottom of that inning, 6-6. “I was very pleased in that we did not quit once they went ahead and we were able to come back and tie the game on a big hit from Sam Deschenes,” said Gardner. Festus scored the winning run in the bottom of the eighth. Each team had nine hits in the game and Washington committed three errors to two for Post 253. Leimkuehler led the offense with three hits. Howard added two while Eckelkamp, Deschenes, Kopmann and Borgerding each added one hit. Leimkuehler had the only extra-base hit, a double. Eckelkamp scored twice while Deschenes, Leimkuehler, Howard and Bollmann

Post 218 Freshmen Saturday at 5:30 p.m. On Sunday, Post 218 plays a pair at Elsberry starting at 11 a.m. Central The weekend opened with Post 218 winning 10-0 over Central Friday at Rotary Recreational Complex - Ronsick Field.

Saturday Cape Opening a three-game, two-day series against Cape Girardeau, Washington won a thriller Saturday at Rotary Recreational Complex - Ronsick Field, 8-7. “We led the whole game and seemed to be in control until the seventh inning,” Juergens said. “Leading 7-3 going into the seventh we gave up four runs and then were able to push the winner across in the bottom of the inning.” Post 218 struck first, getting two runs in the bottom of the first inning. Cape Girardeau scored once in the top of the second, but Washington scored three more runs in the bottom of that inning. Each team scored twice in the sixth.

Holdmeyer started for Washington and lasted 5.1 innings, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks. He struck out two. “Logan Holdmeyer had his best outing to date on the mound,” Juergens said. Matt Miller gave up a hit and a walk before giving way to Justin Baylard.

Hillermann had one stolen base. Sunday Game 1 Post 218 made certain Sunday started with a victory, beating Cape Girardeau in the first game of a doubleheader, 25-0. “Cape came out not ready to play and we buried them early scoring 11 in the first inning,” Juergens said. “We went on to win 25-0. It was one of those games where we could do no wrong and they couldn’t do anything right.” Washington outhit Cape Girardeau, 18-1, and took advantage of eight Cape Girardeau errors. Post 218 opened scoring with an 11-run first inning. Washington scored once in the second, five times in the third and eight times in the fourth. Ayers took care of the pitching side of things, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out three. Washington made no errors behind him. “On the mound, Evan Ayers got his first start of the season on the mound, and he responded,” Juergens said. “He pitched a one-hit shutout for his first win. He did a great job all day. He had them hitting his pitches all game. He really did a good job of keeping them off balance. It was really nice to see him out there pitching with such command.” Offensively, Hasenjaeger led the way with four hits. Shawn Mittler ended with three hits while Bollmann and Thiel each posted two hits. Himmelberg, Finder, Juergens, Becszlko, Feldmann, Miller and Halmich each had one hit.

• Continued from Page 1D first game for the second contest while suffering its first loss of the season, 5-3. Cape Girardeau was the home team for the game and never trailed. Cape Girardeau scored four times in the bottom of the first and once in the second for its runs. Washington’s scoring came in the fifth inning. “We pushed three across in the fifth and had the tying runs on, but give the Cape pitcher credit he was able to get out of the inning,” Juergens said. Cape Girardeau outhit Post 218, 8-6. And after making all of the errors in the first game, Cape Girardeau played flawless defense as Post 218 made three errors. Three batters accounted for Washington’s hits. Halmich, Miller and Holdmeyer posted two hits apiece. Halmich and Miller each doubled. Halmich, McNeal and Baylard scored. Diener, Miller and Holdmeyer earned RBIs. McNeal walked twice while Hillermann, Hasenjaeger and Baylard each walked once. Hasenjaeger added a sacrifice. Hillermann was hit by a pitch. Feldmann suffered the loss, allowing four runs (three earned) on three hits before being relieved by Himmelberg. Over six innings, Himmelberg allowed one run on five hits and one walk. He struck out two. “The bright spot for this game was John Himmelberg,” said Juergens. “Himmelberg came in to pitch in relief of Feldmann and pitched five-plus innings allowing only one run.” Juergens said it will be interesting to see how the team responds to the loss. St. Peters Post 218 bounced back Monday with a 6-3 win at St. Peters, but needed nine innings to win the game. Washington scored single runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings to take a 3-0 lead. St. Peters scored once in the fifth and twice in the sixth to tie it. The game stayed deadlocked until the ninth, when Washington put three more runs on the board to win it.

Brad Carpenter won the Gateway Section Junior PGA two-day qualifier June 12 at Sunset Hills Country Club in Edwardsville, Ill. A junior-to-be at Washington High School, Carpenter carded a one-under-par round of 71 on the second day to win the tournament by one stroke. Carpenter was five shots off the pace after shooting an 81 on the first day, but rallied back to win the tournament on the second day of the 36-hole event with a total score of 152. The victory earned Carpenter a berth in the 2012 Junior PGA Championship, a four-day tournament scheduled to begin July 31 at Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Fort Wayne, Ind. “I’m excited to play in the Junior PGA Championship. Sycamore Hills is over 7,200 yards and very challenging,” Carpenter said. “I’ve never played in a four-day tournament. There is a cut after three days. Davis Love III (PGA Tour golfer and cap-

Union Swim Team Falls to Lindgate By Bill Battle

Missourian Sports Editor

Which local swim team has competed in the most meets so far? If you answered the Union Squids, you’re right on the mark. Union has participated in three Gateway Swimming and Diving Conference meets so far. As of deadline time, results had been received for one. The first meet with results is Lindgate 278, Union 195, which took place at Lindgate Monday, June 11. As of press time results weren’t available for the Union-Robinwood meet June 4 or the Union home meet against Big Bend Woods June 9. The Squids are off this week and return to action next Monday at Oaks Landing. Lindgate The meet opened with in-

threw a lot of strikes. His velocity was good. Our defense was good in the first game.” Trailing 1-0, Post 320 tied the game with a run in the bottom of the fifth inning and took the lead for good with three runs in the bottom of the sixth. Eain Roberts had the big hit of the sixth inning, a two-out, two-run single to put Pacific on top. Post 320 outhit St. Charles, 5-2. Roberts paced Pacific with one hit, two RBIs and one run. Brendan McMillan added one hit (triple), one RBI and one run. Alex Rice and Howell both finished with one hit and one run. Dalton Mathis collected one hit. Randy Chitwood drew a walk. “They had a good pitcher who threw pretty hard,” Kelley said. “We came up with some big hits when we needed them.” Second Game Post 320 slugged out 14 hits in the second game in a 11-8 win over St. Charles (5-7, 4-5). “Once we scored a couple of runs in the third inning, our offense took off,” Kelley said. “Our defense wasn’t very good. We probably had five or six errors. All eight of their runs were unearned.”

In the butterfly stroke, Union’s winners were Abby Thwing, Drew Fischer, Alexis Garlock, Jillian Johnston and Tim Parsons. The meet concluded with the medley relay races. Union won in the girls 8-Under, girls 11-12, boys 11-12 and boys 15-18 events.

Brett Mann registered 15 strikeouts in seven innings for Post 320 to earn the win. He allowed eight runs, none earned, on seven hits with two walks and the 15 strikeouts. “Brett struck out the first eight batters he faced,” Kelley said. “He threw around 105 pitches. His pitch count would have been in the 80s if our defense was better. He had great mound presence. He didn’t fold after we made errors. I think it made him mad and he threw the ball harder. “Brett and Ryan both will get a lot of work for the rest of the season, especially with Drew Fonner hurt and Nick Hogan just coming back from an injury.” Four different players collected three hits for Pacific. Mathis finished the game with three hits, three RBIs and two runs. “Dalton is our cleanup hitter and does a great job put-

prepared for the challenges Sycamore Hills will present after playing in the two-day qualifier at Sunset Hills. “Sunset Hills is a very nice course that also is very challenging,” Carpenter said. “The course was 6,850 yards with the fastest greens I’ve ever played.” Carpenter had a big second day to win the tournament. “I shot an 81 on the first day with a two-hour rain delay and was tied for 13th out of 47 in my age group (16-18),” Carpenter said. “On day two, I had two bogeys, two double bogeys, five birdies and an eagle. I finished first in my age group and first overall (98 golfers). My best shot was a hole out from 70 yards for an eagle on 17. That shot probably won it for me.” During his sophomore golf season at WHS, Carpenter tied for third-place individual honors in the MSHSAA Class 4 championships at Silo Ridge Golf & Country Club in Bolivar with rounds of 72 and 73 for a 36-hole total of 145, just one stroke over par.

Resurfacing Commuter Lot Crews work to micro-surface the parking lot at the First Baptist Church, Union, that is used for a commuter lot and the new location of the farmers market. The church and city are under an agreement that the city maintains the lot in exchange for use of the lot for commuter parking. The Saturday farmers market relocated Missourian Photo/Gregg Jones. there this month.

City officials may consider population density of subdivisions, or proximity to public services to determine if sidewalks should be installed at new developments. Discussion of a city sidewalk ordinance was taken up again Monday night by the parks, building, development and public service committee. Alderman Dustin Bailey said in the “spirit of compromise” a proposed sidewalk ordinance could be amended to better reflect the needs of that mode of transportation throughout the city. “Maybe they don’t need to be on cul-de-sacs,” he said. Bailey added that some developments that have little traffic or very few homes also may not require sidewalks. However, he suggested that streets that have multiple housing unites, including those with apartments, should have sidewalks to provide safety for pedestrians. City Attorney Tim Melenbrink said he will look into other sidewalk requirements, including that of Franklin County which includes the phrase “density of dwellings” when determining if sidewalks are required to be installed by builders. Another determination to installing sidewalks used by other governmental entities, Melenbrink said, is the proximity of residences to public services, such as schools or • See Sidewalks Page 2U

Committee Agrees to Participation Grows Adopt Trailnet Study In State A+ Program n Completed Last Year

By Gregg Jones

Union Missourian Editor

A city committee agreed Monday to recommend aldermen adopt a bicycle and pedestrian plan presented by a St. Louis firm. The Trailnet study was conducted in 2010, but the city never formally adopted the draft. “We have a plan but we never formally adopted it,” said City Administrator Russell Rost. The draft plan does not commit the city to act on the plan, officials said. In 2007, the city received a $3,000 donation from the anonymous donor for the 10 percent cost-share match to participate in the program.

In 2010, Trailnet increased the local match for the project to 20 percent. Other costs also increased and the total amount needed for the city to participate was more than $7,400. The anonymous donor did not fund all of the initial upfront costs but still asked the city to move forward with the plan. The city’s portion to fund the project was about $3,500. Public Forum A forum was held last August where it was recommended that 23 miles of sidewalks be added to the city’s existing 15 to 16 miles of sidewalks. At the forum, the public was able to look at maps outlining where possible trails,

sidewalks and other facilities could be added throughout Union. Connections between parks and schools in Ward 3 also are included in the plan. In addition to these recommendations, Trailnet representatives said the city should consider programs for walkers and cyclists, such as events like Sunday Parkways, where public streets are closed to vehicles so that activity stations can be placed along the streets for cyclists and walkers. Other programs include organized bike rides and youth bike safety education programs like bike rodeos. Survey Says About 21 people took a

The number of Union High School graduates taking advantage of Missouri’s A+ scholarship program was up for the previous academic year, but the school district’s A+ program administrator said participation in the program among current students has dropped. Bette Ruether, the R-XI district’s A+ coordinator, said overall participation in the program was down. Out of 908 students at the high school, 440 were participating in the program and had signed participation agreements. Those 440 students represent 48.5 percent of the total high school student body, down from 54.3 percent for the 2010-11 school year, Ruether said. For the most recent school year, 111 of the 162 ranked UHS graduates completed the requirements for A+ eligibility, or about 68.5 percent. That’s up from the 63.4 percent of ranked graduates, 116 out of 183, who met A+ requirements last year. The percentage of qualifying graduates represents an all-time high at the school,

which has seen steady increases for each year with the exception of 2010 to 2011 since the program began a decade ago. The Missouri Department of Higher Education reported that 103 Union graduates received $193,270 in A+ scholarship funds for the 2010-2011 academic year. For the prior school year, 90 former students received $148,756 in scholarships. Funding for the scholarships came primarily from the Missouri Lottery, with the rest from the state’s general revenue fund. Last year, 97 percent of A+ scholarship funding came from the lottery. This year that figure dropped to 74 percent. To earn their scholarship funding, students have to participate in tutoring of elementary and secondary students. Graduating UHS seniors in the program logged close to 8,000 tutoring hours during their four years at the high school, Ruether said, while 35 underclassmen have already completed the 50 hours of tutoring needed to meet A+ requirements.

Resident Asks For Extended Hours at Pool City officials Monday again discussed the possibility of granting access to swimmers later in the day during some summer evenings. Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Arand said a Union woman, Karrie Wilmesherr, complained that the Spalsh-N-Swimplex hours don’t accommodate schedules of many residents. “She felt like when she gets off work, the pool should be open,” said Arand. Wilmesherr was on the


agenda to address the city’s parks, building, development and public service committee, but did not attend the meeting. Arand noted that there have been many discussions about keeping the pool open later during some nights, but the change would not be cost-effective. He said it would cost $288 to pay the staff, including concessions staff and lifeguards, to stay open from 6-9 p.m. That would require 74 “new” pool users to pay for • See Pool Page 2U

parks. He noted that some entities require sidewalks if a development is within onehalf mile of some public services. The ordinance was written by Tim Melenbrink at the direction of the city’s planning and zoning board. That board had discussed the ordinance for several months before recommending the board of aldermen make a decision on the proposed law. Included in the law are criteria that a development must meet so they would not be required to build a sidewalk. Instead, the developer would chip into a fund earmarked for sidewalks within the city. Aldermen agreed to discuss the proposed ordinance, and possibly amend it, in a city committee. The city’s planning and zoning commission agreed to place the moratorium while the St. Andrews subdivision was being constructed. Since that time, developers did not have to construct sidewalks. Local developers have argued that requiring side-

walks would drive up home costs and place a burden on many builders who already are struggling. Alderman Jim Albrecht argued that Union has grown quickly compared to communities like Washington during the past decade because there are not stringent building codes here, such as sidewalk requirements. Current Funding Monday night, aldermen noted that if a sidewalk law is implemented the city should step up its efforts to repair and replace damaged sidewalks. “If we pass anything like this, I think the city needs to buck up,” said Alderman Bob Schmuke. Bailey agreed, noting that the “current funding mechanism is not enough.” City Administrator Russell Rost said the city’s sidewalk maintenance program began just a few years ago after complaints of the sidewalks on Oak Street. After those were repaired, the city spent about $40,000 annually to repair sidewalks and fill in gaps between sidewalks. Rost added that there had

been a time period, about 20 years, in which the city did not properly maintain sidewalks. “We always want to have a maintenance program,” he said. “Eventually we will fill in the gaps and take care of those in disrepair.” According to Rost, once the city catches up on repairs to sidewalks, sidewalk funds will be available for sidewalks in other areas of the city. “I’m pretty proud of what we accomplished,” said Mayor Mike Livengood. Sidewalk Criteria The determination to not build sidewalks would be made by the board of aldermen, and would include factors based on pedestrian traffic generators, existence of a sidewalk network, density of development, amount of anticipated pedestrian traffic, cost of constructing, terrain that is unfeasible and impact to trees/ground cover/natural areas, officials said. The required amount for the special fund would be determined by the city engineer. The fund would give a boost to the maintenance of sidewalks.


Trailnet survey last year that asked what specific locations had barriers or obstacles to pedestrian and bicycle travel in Union. Survey takers responded that more sidewalks are needed. Respondents said a lack of sidewalks along U.S. Highway 50 over the Bourbeuse River and state Highway 47, especially on bridges, as well as many subdivisions and parts of Main Street and Springfield Avenue, Denmark Road, Prairie Dell Road and College Road were obstacles. Poor pavement on side streets and no way to get from Ward 4 to the rest of Union were other concerns raised in the survey. A lack of sidewalks is the factor that discouraged most people from walking, followed by automobile traffic and speed, unfriendly pedestrian streets and no buffers between sidewalks and roads.

and sidewalks in need of repair are other discouraging factors. For cyclists, the most discouraging factor is the lack of off-street trails, followed by a lack of bicycle lanes, inconsiderate motorists, crossing busy roads and inadequate shoulder width. Narrow lanes, high-speed automobile traffic and traffic volumes also were concerns expressed in the survey. According to the survey, all of the respondents said the Union City Park is a destination they would most like to get to by bike or foot. Other popular destinations include Union City Lake, Union Splash-N-Swimplex, East Central College, commercial destinations along Highway 50 and ClarkVitt Park. Fitness and recreation topped the list of reasons people currently walk or would want to walk in the future followed by walking the dog and transportation to local destinations, such as parks, grocery stores, the post office and library. For cyclists, fitness and recreation also is the reason they currently bike followed by transportation to various destinations. Figures According to the survey, 47.6 percent rated current conditions for walking in Union as poor while 42.9 percent said they were fair and 9.5 percent rated them excellent. When asked to rate the conditions for cyclists, 76.2 percent said poor, while 19

percent said fair and 4.8 percent said excellent. About 85.7 percent of survey respondents said Union should consider nonmotorized transportation, like cycling and walking, as a priority and 71.4 percent said improving walking and bicycling conditions in Union is important to them. Forty percent of respondents said they walk a few times per month and 35 percent said they walk a few times per week. Ninety percent said they would walk more if new trails, sidewalks and safer routes were provided. Sixty-five percent of respondents said they never bike and 30 percent said they bike a few times per month. When asked if they would bike more often if more trails and safer routes were offered, 70 percent said yes. Trailnet Process Trailnet is a St. Louisbased not-for-profit organization that promotes bicycle and pedestrian activities and collaborates with public and private entities to enhance trail systems and connect communities. The organization also has determined within the county where trails can be established: Washington, Union, Pacific, New Haven and St. Clair. Trailnet’s current project is getting the word out that Missouri transportation enhancement funds are available to communities interested in establishing “walkable/ bikeable” trails. Since 2006, the organization has planned trails for Crystal City, Festus, Bridgeton, Sunset Hills, Vinita Park and Cottleville. During the first phase, Trailnet held public meetings in communities that agreed to participate, to get input about what people want in a trail and to assess a community’s needs. That meeting will be held after the first of the year. During Phase 2, the team identified potential trailways, created GIS maps and cost estimates and to create a 10year plan that includes grant possibilities and city funding options. In addition to planning trails and seeking funding sources, Trailnet works to educate the community about the benefits of trails. It partners with schools to develop bike trails to schools, host weekly bike rides to promote the trails and more.

The awards Missourian Photo. were presented by Executive Director Dr. Ron Kruse, right.

A+ PROGRAM District officials help too, Ruether said. “I want to thank principals, secretaries, teachers, bus drivers and everyone who works with these kids to make this possible,” she said. The district buses students to various buildings for tutoring services, Ruether noted. Students must meet citizenship, attendance and

will have to meet even stricter requirements to qualify for A+ scholarships including an “advanced” or “proficient” score in end of course exams for the first year of algebra. Those not meeting that requirement can still receive A+ funding, but must first complete a 12-credit hour semester at a community college at their own expense and earn a 2.5 or higher grade point average.

POOL entry to the pool after 6 p.m. Alderman Dustin Bailey, who serves as liaison to the city’s park advisory board, said its one “traditional” night per week could draw crowds to the pool. “I’d like to see one night a week consistent through the summer,” he said. Arand added that there are two nights this summer, July 7 and Aug. 5, that the pool will remain open later, but there have not been many requests by residents for extended hours. “I can’t even count on one hand the people who approach me or people at the pool who ask about staying open later,” he said. Arand further noted that there are swim lessons, water aerobics and other programs offered during the evening pool hours. “I think we need to keep providing that community service to citizens,” he said. The cost to rent the city pool for an evening party is $400, Arand said, and he doesn’t anticipate opening to the general public would generate that amount. He said the pool is not a “money maker” but is a service to the community. “We’re looking at ways to appease everybody and make it manageable for everyone,” Arand said.

State FFA Degrees This year the Union FFA Chapter had three state FFA degrees. Pictured are FFA members and degree recipients Hanah Ladenberger and Alex Williams.

School District to Try Biometric Fingerprint Scanners in Cafeteria Some Union Middle School students may be fingerprinted before they eat lunch at school. The Union R-XI School Board Monday approved a pilot program to purchase biometric fingerprint scanners that could be utilized as an alternative payment option for students who lose their student IDs. The students would not be forced to use the scanners, but it will be an option if the students don’t have the IDs that are used to prepurchase school lunches. Assistant Superintendent Dr. Judy Stivers said she previously worked in a school district with the scanners which were used to save parents money. “Some parents have kids who often lose their ID cards,” she said. Schools replace lost cards, but charge a small fee.

The district will purchase two scanners for the pilot program, which will cost the district roughly $285 each. There will be a $300 license fee and $300 setup fee. Board member Ron Sohn said some parents won’t want their students to use the scanners because of security concerns. Students won’t be forced to use the scanners, Superintendent Steve Bryant said. He added that the program is voluntary and students will be given the option to use the biometric fingerprint scanners instead of their student IDs. Bryant explained that now there is a swipe card process in which prepaid meals are purchased using student IDs. He noted that some students may prefer to use the scanners because they won’t have to keep track of their

ID cards in order to purchase lunch. Under the new method, student fingerprints will be scanned into a system that would only be used for the purchase of lunches. “I want to stress that the fingerprints won’t be stored and that this is 100 percent voluntary,” Bryant told The Missourian. Board member Virgil Weideman suggested the district seek parental permission and establish a policy outlining who would have access to the fingerprint data stored in the system. He also questioned if the cost of the scanners would be made up in labor costs. “I doubt it,” Weideman said. According to Bryant, if the program is successful at the middle school, it might be used at other schools within the district.

Some local Scouts will hold a “day of caring” Saturday and the public is invited to help lend a hand to assist the Franklin County Humane Society. Girl Scout Troops 455 and 1292 have been constructing a “Trails for Tails” to benefit the Humane Society and intend to complete the trail Saturday at an event that begins at 9 a.m. at the Union facility. The Trails for Tails is both a walking and exercise trail for animals, but also an effort to educate area residents on the Franklin County Humane Society’s facility and services. During the day of caring event, Pet Station will be hosting clinics, including a puppy training clinic and a microchip clinic. The day of caring event is expected to end about 2 p.m. The goal is to awareness about pet adoptions. Trails for Tails The scope of the project includes a 500foot trail, with a 3-4 inches deep layer of mulch. Scouts and their leaders had attended a Union Board of Aldermen meeting in the spring when city leaders committed some materials and mulch to the project. In May, Scouts began work on the trail.

The Missourian

I have found a new appreciation for golf. The picturesque fields and tranquility of the game make me swell with emotion that reminds me of how bad I miss. . . naps. Seriously, who watches golf on TV? This conversation came up Father’s Day and it reminded me of watching golf with my Great-Uncle Ray who had come to visit my family when I was about 11 years old and living in Lilburn, Ga. Uncle Ray, who lived close during my years near Detroit, was a great guy. He was one of my favorite relatives. He was good to me, except for that time that he fed me eggnog that was incredibly too hot for a small child. So it may sound odd hearing that he was a wonderful person when the man gave me some hot-liquefied, almost baby chickens that I burned my impressionable tongue drinking. I guess that is better than buying eggnog in the store. The only thing worse than the above-mentioned hot Christmastime drink is a glass of cold eggs fresh from the grocer’s cooler. I am pretty certain that whomever thought of the idea of serving eggs in a glass was pulling a prank on

someone. Other than the great eggnog incident of ’82, Uncle Ray was a stand-up guy. During his visit to Lilburn, I was left alone with Uncle Ray as the rest of my family, and Ray’s traveling companions (probably his wife) had all gone shopping, or run out for a glass of hot eggs. Uncle Ray and I were left to watch some television. He was the elder, so he decided what to watch. Much to my dismay, it was golf. I am a sports fan. I could watch most baseball games, almost any NFL game, and many college basketball games. While I stay away from the NBA, I may check out a game or two in finals. But what I detest watching, what I refuse to watch, is golf. The game is boring. I don’t have the desire to play the game, let alone watch millionaires walk (or ride) on a golf course while someone else carries their bags. And these dudes are called athletes? That is just like calling NASCAR drivers athletes — just kidding! Please don’t throw Tide, Busch beer and Mountain Dew at my house, racing fans. Golfers don’t really have to watch their weight or focus too much on cardio. I’m

We would watch golf, Uncle Ray would snooze, I would change the channel, he would make me switch it back. Rinse and repeat. In the end, he won. Uncle Ray is no longer with us, but when I look back, there were some lessons he taught me that will live on. The first is to stay away from eggnog. The stuff has no place near my mouth, hot or cold.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Estimates released Monday by the Missouri auditor’s office conclude there would be no direct costs or savings from proposals on this year’s ballot dealing with the selection of appellate judges and restricting health care exchanges. Missouri lawmakers approved the measures earlier this year and referred them to the ballot. The auditor’s office prepared separate cost summaries for each. The cost estimates were released Monday after Auditor Tom Schweich instructed staff earlier this spring to stop preparing estimates for ballot initiatives, citing recent court rulings that had clouded the authority of his office to complete the task. The moratorium was to remain in effect until a state appeals court or the Legislature provided specific guidance. The auditor’s office said that moratorium applies to initiative petitions — in which supporters gather voter signatures to get the measure on the ballot — because the law at issue before the courts is one directing the auditor’s office to develop financial estimates for initiative petitions. The proposed health exchange law would prohibit bar Missouri from taking steps to create a health insurance exchange without approval from voters or the Legislature. It also would prohibit state departments from taking any federal money to prepare for an online insurance marketplace. The federal health care law gives states until 2014 to set up their own insurance exchanges or

have one run by the federal government. The auditor’s office said it expects no direct financial effects and that indirect costs or savings from enforcement actions, missed federal funding, avoided implementation costs and other issues are unknown. For the proposal dealing with the selection of judges, the auditor’s office estimated no costs or savings. Deputy Auditor Harry Otto, who oversaw the cost estimate for the measure dealing with judges, said no one had suggested any possible costs and that the summary was a “no-brainer.� The proposal would amend the Missouri Constitution and allow governors to appoint an additional person to the special state commission that nominates finalists for openings on the state Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court. The additional appointee would replace the state high court judge who currently serves on the nominating commission. In addition, governors would be given an extra nominee from which to choose in appointing a new judge. Under Missouri law, the auditor’s office develops cost summaries for measures passed and referred to the ballot by the Legislature — if lawmakers do not develop their own version. A separate state law gives the auditor’s office responsibility for developing estimates for initiative petitions, in which supporters gather voter signatures to get the measure on the ballot. The Missouri Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments for June 25 in several cases dealing with initiative petitions.

Results of April 3 Election In Joplin Are Questioned JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — A former Joplin official contends residents who were displaced after last year’s tornado should not have been allowed to return to their former precincts to vote in an April 3 election in which voters narrowly approved a $62 million bond issue for the city’s schools. Doug Joyce, former parks and recreation director for Joplin, is asking election officials to put the results of the vote on hold while records are reviewed. The measure passed by only 46 votes out of the more than 8,600 cast, The Joplin Globe reported. Jasper County Clerk Bonnie Earl said some Joplin voters who lost their homes after the May 2011 tornado, such as those in Federal Emergency Management Agency trailers in the Webb City School District, were allowed to vote in Joplin because they planned to move back to their former precincts. She said she discussed the decision with the Secretary of State’s office before the vote.

“I told them if they were planning on moving back, they could vote in their old precincts,� she said. “It’s not like they moved by choice; these people had been displaced.� Joyce, who lives in the Joplin school district, said he is more concerned with how the election was conducted than with the results. In a letter to the Globe, Joyce said voters who signed in at the polls “were saying that was their correct address, when in most cases, that address was an empty lot.� Ryan Hobart, spokesman for Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, said the state will not review the election because county clerks are in charge of local votes. Gregory Magarian, an expert in voting and constitutional law at Washington University in St. Louis, noted the Missouri Constitution allows students who move for college to maintain their home address for voting. “You can’t vote twice, in two different places, and no one is saying that

happened,� he said. “It stands to reason the clerk would display some flexibility because in terms of residence, those folks have experienced the ultimate hardship.� Last August, Joplin voters were counted in their old precincts but all voted at Northpark Mall in an election that extended the city’s quarter-cent sales tax for parks and stormwater projects. That passed by a large margin. Some Joplin-area voters may have to change their registration for the Aug. 7 primary, Earl said. She said the clerk’s office is trying to find county residents who have permanently moved and have no plans to return to their former precincts. Doris Moorehouse, a deputy clerk in the elections office, said the office is still hearing from tornado victims who say they will be back in their old neighborhoods by the primary. July 11 is the deadline to register or to change addresses on voter registration records for the Aug. 7 primary election.

Man Sentenced MU Researcher For DrunkenDriving Death Links Childhood Obesity, Math Skills COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A University of Missouri researcher reports she has found a link between childhood obesity and poor math skills. Sara Gable is an associate professor in the university’s Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology. Her research followed more than 6,250 children from kindergarten through fifth grade. Gable found that both boys and girls considered obese in kindergarten performed worse on math

tests starting in first grade. Fewer gaps were seen in children who became obese when they were older. She concluded the poor math performance was connected in part to feelings of sadness, loneliness and other shortcoming in social skills. The study was published in the journal Child Development. Gable collaborated with researchers from the University of Vermont and the University of California, Los Angeles.

MoDOT: Keep Yard Signs Back From Highways JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — They’re the signs of summer in an election year: signs advertising yard sales or promoting political candidates.

The agency says the signs restrict visibility and create obstacles

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A southwest Missouri man who told investigators he was “a little buzzed� before a traffic accident that killed a wellknown hospice nurse is going to prison for 12 years. KOLR-TV reports that 32-year-old Matthew Brannon, of Springfield, was sentenced Monday in Greene County Circuit Court. Brannon pleaded guilty in April to first-degree involuntary manslaughter. Investigators said he had a blood-alcohol level of .159 — nearly twice the legal limit — after the collision at a Springfield intersection that killed 55-year-old Kathryn Wells in October 2010. Brannon told authorities he had been drinking earlier that day but thought he could drive because he was “only a little buzzed.� Witnesses and experts estimated Brannon was driving at least 72 mph in a 45 mph zone before hitting the car driven by Wells.

Deputy Responds To First ‘Domestic Texting’ Incident

MONTGOMERY CITY, Mo. (AP) — An eastern Missouri sheriff says his department has responded to its first “domestic texting� call after two people in the same home carried out an entire argument through text messages. Montgomery County Sheriff Robert Davis tells radio station KXEO a deputy went to a home last week in rural Montgomery City on a domestic violence complaint. The sheriff says one of the parties handed the deputy a phone and told him he could read the whole argument. Davis says his deputy didn’t arrest anyone because no threats had been made, but the officer did call the state Division of Family Services after seeing a 2-year-old child sleeping in a corner next to animal waste.

Bridge Opening ST. LOUIS (AP) — A midtown traffic headache in St. Louis will last a little longer than expected.

Gets National Nod

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis’ famed Crown Candy Kitchen may be best-known for its thick malts, but the BLT sandwich is attracting national attention. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Travel Channel’s Adam Richman has picked Crown Candy’s “HeartStopping BLT� as a contender for the nation’s best sandwich. The program “Best Sandwich in America� will feature the St. Louis favorite in an episode airing 8 p.m. Wednesday. The sandwich crams 14 pieces of bacon — at least — lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise between slices of toasted Wonder Bread. About 125 of the sandwiches are served to customers every day. Crown Candy Kitchen coowner Andy Karandzieff said on a typical day, the north St. Louis restaurant uses up to 200 pounds of bacon. They order the meat by the case, which is then “kettle fried� in vegetable oil, 10 pounds at a time. The bacon monster was born by accident, when employees began loading more bacon onto a sandwich that was intended to be filling, but not absurdly so. It’s Richman’s second visit

to Crown Candy Kitchen. He took the “malt challenge� — five malts in 30 minutes — in 2008 for his “Man vs. Food� show. Richman made it through 4 1/2 before getting sick, failing to win a T-shirt and his name on Crown Candy Kitchen’s wall. Karandzieff sent a BLT to Richman’s hotel room after the malt challenge, a sandwich Richman told the owner “may have saved his life.� Karandzieff got a call from producers earlier this year, saying Richman wanted to return in March for the bracketstyle sandwich competition.

Wildfires Rage LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) — A wildfire that has charred nearly 92 square miles in northern Colorado since it began 10 days ago is now 50 percent contained, authorities said. Firefighters faced dangerous conditions across much of the Rocky Mountain region Monday, as they toiled in hot, dry weather to battle the blaze, which has now destroyed at least 189 homes — the most in the state’s history. Eight more homes were found Monday to have burned in the fire near Fort Collins.

Lawmakers Try to Save Stalled Transportation Bill WASHINGTON (AP) — House and Senate leaders are making a last-ditch effort to revive stalled legislation to overhaul federal transportation programs — Congress’ best bet for passage of a major jobs bill this year — but prospects for passage before the November election are dimming. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, DNev., and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, as well as two key committee chairmen, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., are scheduled to meet Tuesday to try to reach an agreement on how to handle a collection of sensitive policy and financing matters still in dispute. A 47-member House-Senate committee has been holding negotiations on the bill for over a month, but they have been unable to reach agreement on a host of difficult issues, lawmakers involved in the process and their staffs said. Time Running Out Time is running extremely short. Authority to spend money from the Highway Trust Fund — the main source of federal transportation aid to states — expires June 30. As a practical matter, congressional leaders need to make a decision by about Wednesday on whether to continue to try to pass a comprehensive bill, or whether to seek a temporary extension of transportation programs. There are only about a half dozen days left in the month in which Congress is scheduled to be in session, and it takes time to prepare an extension bill and pass it. Boehner has already signaled that if there is to be an extension, it should be at least six months long. That would push off the question of how to shore up the trust fund — which is forecast to go broke sometime next year — until after the election. Highway and transit programs have limped along under a series of nine extensions since the last long-term transportation bill expired in 2009. The Senate passed a bipartisan, $109 billion transportation bill earlier this year that would consolidate current programs, give states more flexibility on how

they spend federal aid and streamline environmental regulations to speed up completion of highway projects. House Republicans also crafted a comprehensive bill, but were unable to pass the measure. There are deep divisions within the GOP about whether transportation programs should be forced to live entirely with the revenue generated by federal gas taxes and other user fees, even if it means cutting programs by more than a third. Stalemate After several tries, House leaders gave up trying to pass their bill, and instead passed what was effectively a shell bill designed to meet legislative requirements necessary to begin negotiations with the Senate. Senate Democrats have blamed intransigence by House Republicans for the stalemate in negotiations. Reid has suggested that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., is trying to delay the transportation bill in order to sabotage the economy. Road-building and other industries dependent on highway programs have also identified House Republicans as the main obstacle to passage of a bill. A coalition of industry groups launched radio ads last week in the congressional districts of four House negotiators. “With billions of dollars at stake, and thousands of good paying jobs, it is time for Congress to take action,” the ads said. “Will your congressman be part of the problem, or part of the transportation solution?” GOP lawmakers have been working hard on the transportation bill, but they are insisting on reforms to prevent money from being misspent that Senate Democrats have so far resisted, Boehner told reporters Tuesday morning. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce sent a letter to lawmakers Monday urging them not to give up on a comprehensive bill. To do so would mean “the economic growth potential of infrastructure investment would be squandered and job losses would likely continue in the coming months and years,” wrote Bruce Josten, the chamber’s executive vice president.

Thousands Email Nixon About Missouri Contraception Bill JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Gov. Jay Nixon has been inundated with nearly 5,000 online messages, emails and letters as he mulls what to do with a politically thorny bill injecting Missouri into the national debate over insurance coverage for contraception. The Republican-led Legislature sent the Democratic governor a bill saying no employer or health plan provider can be compelled to provide coverage for contraception, sterilization or abortion if those items run contrary to their religious or moral convictions. The bill would allow the attorney general to sue government officials or others who infringe on the rights granted in the measure. 4,700 Messages Nixon’s office has received more than 4,700 messages — more than any other bill this year — urging him to sign or veto the legislation. The number of veto pleas appeared roughly double that of signature requests in a stack of 3,100 messages provided to The Associated Press under a records request.

Cape Girardeau May Allow Deer Hunting in City CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — Cape Girardeau is one step closer to allowing deer hunting within city limits. The Cape Girardeau City Council on Monday approved a proposal to allow regulated bow hunting in the city but the controversy is unlikely to end soon. A final vote is scheduled July 2 but the Southeast Missourian reports the outcome is unlikely to change. A group opposed to the deer hunt, Cape Friends of Wildlife, says it plans to work to put the issue to a citywide vote as early as November. They say residents would be in danger from the hunts, which would make the city a target for lawsuits. Supporters say the city needs to thin the deer herd to reduce damage to landscapes and curb deer-related traffic accidents.

But many of the messages, particularly in opposition to the bill, appeared to be form letters. The governor has until July 14 to sign or veto the legislation; otherwise, the measure automatically takes effect — something Nixon has allowed each of the past two years with abortion bills. Nixon spokesman Scott Holste said the insurance bill will be “thoroughly reviewed.” Plenty of people are awaiting the outcome of that review. Opponents of the legislation sent nearly 1,000 messages from May 18 through June 6 that appeared to be based upon a model from the Missouri Sierra Club. The emails asked Nixon to veto the health insurance bill while noting the environmental group’s support for access to family planning services and information. Chapter director John Hickey said the response from the organization’s members has been the largest for any state issue. Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri also have urged supporters to ask Nixon to veto the legislation. Wants Access Among those sending an original message was Barbara Mitchell, who said she wants to be sure her daughters and other young women have access to the health care they need. Mitchell, from Chesterfield, said Nixon has tried so hard to govern from the political center that he has not always taken stands. Nonetheless, she said the governor seems to support women’s rights and health issues and she would be shocked if Nixon does not veto the insurance legislation, which is Senate Bill 749. Controversy about health insurance coverage exploded this year when President Barack Obama’s administration tried to require religious nonprofits serving the public to cover birth control through employee health plans. After a backlash, the policy was modified to require insurers, not religious employers, to bear responsibility for covering contraception. Religious Freedoms Roman Catholic dioceses, universities and chari-

ties have filed numerous federal lawsuits, and rallies were held throughout the country earlier this month against the federal insurance requirement. At a rally outside the Missouri Capitol, speakers said religious freedoms are at stake. Supporters gathered signatures on several large poster boards urging Nixon to sign the state health insurance legislation. Missouri residents wrote in numerous emails to Nixon’s office that abortion is not health care and asked the governor to “protect our religious liberties” and individual conscience. Many sent similarly phrased messages urging the governor to “put aside political calculations,” while others wrote that “it’s not about free pills; it’s about religious liberty.” One man from the small northwestern Missouri town of Conception said that by signing the legislation, the state could set an example for the nation. Catholic bishops from Missouri also sent letters urging Nixon to approve the legislation.

Health Care Grants Have State Ties

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The latest round of federal health care grants has several connections to Missouri. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says the University of Missouri-Columbia will receive $13.3 million to provide primary health care services to Medicare and Medicaid clients. The money is to be used for health information technology and evidence-based treatment plans, among other things. The surgery-benefits management firm of Welvie LLC — which is based in St. Louis — is receiving $6.8 million to partner with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Ohio for a project in that state. Schizophrenia patients in Missouri and eight other states also will benefit from a $9.4 million grant to the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.

Man Found Guilty of Child Molestation ............................. Page

A 2-year-old girl drowned Monday evening in a swimming pool at a residence in the 200 block of Deep Woods Drive off of Highway K southeast of St. Clair, Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke said. The girl has been identified as Harley Hedge. Authorities did not release the name of the toddler until Tuesday morning after all relatives had been notified. Toelke confirmed that the girl was in the care of her greatgrandmother, Helen Frick, at the time of the incident. At about 6 p.m. on Monday, the 2-year-old and Frick, who had guardianship of the child, were outside picking berries in the yard. The sheriff said Hedge told her great-grandmother that she was going in the house, and she left walking in that direction. Toelke said Frick saw the toddler walk toward the front porch of the house, and she continued to pick berries. About three minutes later, Toelke said the great-grandmother did not see Hedge, so she went to look for her but couldn’t find her in or around the house. Frick

A 5-kilometer run will take place earlier that day with a 7:30 a.m. scheduled start. There are no Saturday activities at Ev-

to enjoy them.”

Man Dies in Motorcycle Crash Inside City Limits

n Was Passenger on Homemade Three-Wheeler

By Keith E. Domke

St. Clair Missourian Editor

A 67-year-old man was killed on Friday morning when the motorcycle he was riding crashed after careening into a ditch near Hoff Insurance Agency, 245 S. Commercial Ave. According to the St. Clair Police Department report, Elmer Page of Herculaneum was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital Washington about a half-hour after the 10:27 a.m. crash.


The driver of the homemade, three-wheeled 2003 motorcycle, Elvis Moss, 69, of Pevely was taken to Mercy Hospital Washington and later transferred to Mercy Hospital St. Louis for treatment. The motorcycle was the only vehicle involved in the accident. Police Chief Bill Hammack said Moss was northbound on South Commercial Avenue after crossing through the traffic signal at West Gravois Avenue when

he noticed a stopped northbound vehicle waiting to turn into Hoff Insurance. According to information gathered at the scene, Hammack said that Moss stated he swerved his motorcycle to the left to avoid a collision. It traveled through the Hoff Insurance parking lot and hit the southeast corner of the building. Moss was ejected at that time. The vehicle continued across Mosley Avenue and struck a cable barrier.

and three other children who were home at the time then searched for the girl and found her at the bottom of the swimming pool in the yard. Toelke said Frick pulled the girl out of the water and began performing CPR until emergency personnel arrived. Toelke said when deputies got to the scene, they observed St. Clair Fire Protection District personnel performing CPR on the child. Deputies assisted until an ambulance arrived. St. Clair Ambulance personnel transported the girl to Mercy Hospital Washington, where she was pronounced dead. Toelke said on Tuesday morning he did not know if the pool was above-ground or in the ground. He also did not know the location of the pool in relation to the front porch of the home. The sheriff said Hedge does have a mother and a father, and they have been notified. However, he did not know their names or if they lived in or around St. Clair.


Page and the motorcycle tumbled down a steep embankment on the other side of the barrier and came to rest in a deep ditch. Hammack said he did not know whether Moss was following too close, was inattentive or neither. He did say both men were wearing helmets. The duo was traveling to Jefferson City. St. Clair Ambulance personnel transported both men to Mercy Hospital Washington. Hammack said Moss’ injuries were extensive and included a severely broken leg. Page was pronounced dead at 11:04 a.m.

lines up at the gazebo in City Park along South Main Street and will conclude at the community swimming pool at Evergreen. The parade route will follow Main Street to Park Avenue to Evergreen Park. Children up to age 12 participating are asked to decorate their bicycles, tricycles, scooters and other nonmotorized riding devices in a red, white and blue theme. Awards will be given to the top three best-decorated modes of transportation. Mayor Ron Blum is the parade’s grand marshal. A free swim for parade participants is scheduled from about 6:15 to 8 p.m. Just prior to the swim, the city will conduct a ribboncutting ceremony to commemorate the new walking trail at the park. The trail features a larger loop circling the majority of the park with a connecting smaller loop around the adjoining St. Clair Southern Baptist Church property. City employees have been working on constructing, paving and smoothing the asphalt path for several weeks.

pool. At dusk on Friday, the movie “We Bought a Zoo” will be shown on a large, temporary screen at the park. Children and their parents are invited to attend at no cost. Those attending are asked to bring blankets or lawn chairs. Hot dogs and popcorn will be served throughout Friday’s events at Evergreen. Drinks and snacks will be sold throughout the swim at the pool concession stand. Dana’s Shaved Ice also will be selling snow cones and ice cream throughout the evening. Saturday Saturday’s events start early with the 7:30 a.m. 5-kilometer run/walk. It begins at the smaller pavilion at the south end of Orchard Park. The route weaves its way through St. Clair and finishes back at the park. The cost to participate is $15 if registered before race day or $18 on Saturday. Hats will be awarded to the top two male and female finishers in several divisions as well as in various team categories. Event organizer Bart Coleman, chairman of the St. Clair Area Chamber of Commerce’s Beautification Committee, the group in

charge of the race, said “the 5K promotes exercise and movement for runners and walkers.” Proceeds will benefit the Chamber’s Beautification Committee and the 1175th Military Police Co. The organization with the largest number of participants may have all its proceeds donated to the charity of choice. Refreshments will be served along the race path. For more information, contact Coleman or the St. Clair Area Chamber of Commerce. Freedom Fest gets under way at noon with opening ceremonies. About 30 vendors have signed up, and most of them will be selling various food items. The carnival reopens at 1 p.m. and will run until shortly before the fireworks show begins at dusk. This year’s fireworks will be the largest ever in St. Clair, officials have said. Last year, inclement weather delayed the show a day and then cut it short, prompting Lantis Fireworks of Eureka to promise a “bigger and better” show this year. The rain date is Sunday. Also planned on Saturday are various activities and games for all ages. Special events include a

cheerleading clinic at 1 p.m., yoga demonstration at 2 p.m., a talent show at 3 p.m., watermelon eating contest at 5 p.m., nickel in a haystack competition at 5:30 p.m. and turtle races at 6 p.m. The talent show is a new feature this year and replaces the children’s pageant. Individuals of all ages may sign up beforehand or on the day of the event. The cost is $10 or $25 for groups of four or more. Awards will be presented to the top finishers in each age category. There is a code of conduct to follow regarding acts. Registration forms are available at city hall or on the day of the festival. Dana Collins is organizing the talent show. General Information Throughout the two-day event, park board members and other city officials will be on hand to assist individuals and answer questions. On both Friday and Saturday, the west parking lot off of the Interstate 44 South Service Road at Orchard Park will be closed. Vehicles will not be allowed to park at that location. Parking will be available on the soccer fields at the east end of the park. For more information, contact city hall at 636-6290333.


that “to promote the health, safety and welfare of festival participants, the board of aldermen desires to have restrictions in festival districts regarding animals and pets ... and deems it necessary to establish boundaries prohibiting the bringing of alcohol into a festival district.” The ordinance goes on to state that the mayor may declare a festival animal district, a festival beverage district or both within the city limits and also declare a time period for it to be in effect. The wording then states that when a festival animal district is declared, it will be “unlawful” to bring animals, including pets on leashes or other restraints, into the festival area. As far as the festival beverage district, it will be “unlawful” to bring any alcoholic beverages not sold by providers holding proper liquor licenses into the festival area. Individuals not adher-

ing to the festival district law may be fined, jailed or both in accordance with Section 1-8 of the code of ordinances of the city of St. Clair. Police Chief Bill Hammack said on Monday night he had not seen the ordinance and therefore preferred not to comment on it until after he had reviewed and researched it. District Declared At the end of Monday’s meeting after the ordinance unanimously was supported by the three aldermen in attendance — Zach Fuchs, Barb McGlenn

and Travis Dierker — Blum did declare a festival animal district on both Friday and Saturday during the city’s Freedom Fest. The district was declared from 6 to 11 p.m. on Friday at Evergreen Park and from noon to midnight on Saturday at Orchard Park. “We need to restrict animals in these parks within these time periods,” Blum said. See the accompanying Freedom Fest story and schedule of events for information on what is happening where this weekend.

Merchants Committee, which sponsors September’s Main Street Festival, and the city’s park and recreation board, which puts on this weekend’s Freedom Fest, appeared before the aldermen during recent meetings and raised concerns about pets causing problems at these events. “This is in response to requests for some kind of animal control in festival areas,” City Administrator Rick Childers told board members during Monday’s regular meeting. “If we create a festival district ordinance and then declare those districts, it becomes unlawful to have animals at those events.” Childers also said the ordinance could place similar restrictions on alcohol. “It’s a pretty straightforward ordinance,” he said. “It’s similar to what other municipalities in the county have.” Language The ordinance states

My Dad, My Hero, My Friend Father’s Day, just like its marriage partner we celebrated last month, is what we refer to as a Hallmark holiday, even though it is a nationally recognized celebration that was established through declaration by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1966. It gives us another reason to spend money on cards and gifts and give them to our dads. Being observed on the third Sunday of June, our latest observance was this past Sunday. For quite a while, moms were considered to be more special than dads, at least as far as our federal government was concerned. You see, Mother’s Day, the second Sunday in May, officially was established by Congress in 1914, or 52 years earlier than Father’s Day. Of course, since there already was an unofficial Mother’s Day in 1908, an unofficial version of Father’s Day regularly took place starting in about 1910. But, it took our federal government only six years to realize moms were special enough to have their own day, compared to the 56year time frame to set aside a day for dads. In 1966, when Father’s Day became “official,” I had just turned 5 years old. I have no idea what, if anything, I gave my dad that year. Of course, I also don’t remember what I got my mom that year, either. But over the years, I remember a handful of Father’s Day gifts I gave my dad, who now is 84 years old and has been married for 66 years — or more than 2 billion seconds — to my mom. I’ve gotten him little ceramic dog statues, coffee cups, special golf balls, World’s Best Dad trophies, books and probably even a tie or two. ...

Today, my dad’s health isn’t the best. He has difficulty walking for any length of time. A lifetime of hard work has zapped most of his energy. These days, he enjoys simple pleasures as best he can. He likes to sit on his back porch and watch the wind move the trees. He spends hours just about every day reading old Westerns and other books. He watches golf and a few other shows on television. He takes a lot of naps. And he still loves being with his family. I am the only member of my immediate brood who has defected out of the area. My three older sisters still live in my hometown in Northwest Indiana, and they get to see my folks regularly. They still get together for birthdays and days like Valentines Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day as well as the “bigger” holidays like Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I miss those times. I miss being with my family and especially my dad. I have had a lot of friends over the years and a few very close friends. I have some of those here in St. Clair, and I am very thankful for them. But, my two best friends during my lifetime are my wife and my dad. I almost asked my father to be the best man at my wedding nearly 31 years ago. I’ve gone golfing more often with him than anyone

else. I’ve probably laughed my hardest and longest while in his company. And I’ve looked up to him with the highest amount of respect for as long as I can remember. He is a special man, and I love him and am as proud of him as any son can be. Of course, he and I don’t need a special day. I know he knows how I feel every day. And I know how he feels. My dad is one of my heroes, and at the top of my list. I know my father now is in the winter of his life. But for the most part, he has had a wonderful spring, summer and fall. He has been a tremendous leader of his household (even though he still says my mom is the boss), and he has molded me into the man I am today. Yes, it’s his fault. But hopefully, those of you who know me best believe for the most part that my dad has done a terrific job with that one. He has taught me the difference between right and wrong, the value of a hard day’s work, that any job worth doing is worth doing well, the value of honesty, the value of family and the importance of leading one. He has led me by example of how to enjoy life. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I am so fortunate to have the parents I have. They truly are the best. I grew up in a household filled with love and fun.

When I became a father for the first time in 1985, I tried to mold myself after my dad. I think I’ve done OK, but I have big shoes to fill. I’m still working on it. And soon, God willing, I will be a grandfather. My oldest daughter is entering her third trimester of pregnancy. Again, I hope to use my father’s example as I experience that wonderful part of life. Thanks, Padre. (For no particular reason, that is what I often call him.) I know we’re a few days past Father’s Day 2012, and I know the only way my father will read this column is if I send it to him. But, I wanted to use this space to wish Paul H. Domke a happy Father’s Day and to tell him again how much I love him, respect him and how proud I am to be his son. I don’t know how long my dad will be around. I don’t know when I tell him goodbye after our latest visit if it will be the last time I see him or talk to him on the phone.

St. Clair Area Experienced Big Mining Boom in 1899 By Sue Blesi

Franklin County Historian

St. Clair was alive with prospectors in 1899. They came to the area to search for lead and zinc ore. Within a five-mile radius of the village, eight lead and zinc mines were in operation and were said to be on a paying basis. They were the Entre Nous, Meramec, Northumberland, North Virginia, Anderson, Hamilton, M.K. and T and Yellow Dog mines, most of which were owned by St. Louis capitalists. They had confidence in their investments based on the results their prospectors already had obtained, so they began sinking shafts and building storehouses. They installed equipment such as boilers and hoisting engines at a cost of thousands of dollars. The Entre Nous Mining Co. of Missouri was organized in St. Louis. James D. Parrot was president of the company. Other officers were John Mullally, vice president; T.L. Cleary, secretary; and E.H. Davis of Litchfield, Ill., treasurer. They owned a 480-acre tract five miles west of St. Clair. W.H. Rawlings, who was custodian of the property, had discovered indications of lead. Tunnels were cut and a shaft was sunk. All indications pointed to the discovery of one of the most valuable mining properties in the state. This site was about 300 yards from the old abandoned Shotwell Mine. About 200,000 pounds of lead and zinc had been removed by August 1899, but the actual mining work had not begun. The mineral that had been removed was only such as

History of Franklin County the miners crossed while attempting to locate the direction of the dips and in constructing the necessary shafts to be able to start the real mining process. At St. Clair, a small furnace had been built by J.H. Bartle, who was considered one of the most prosperous businessmen in Franklin County. He said both the Meramec and Northumberland mines were paying handsomely. Speaking to a representative of the St. Louis Republic, Bartle said, “I am convinced that lead and zinc exist here in as great quantities as in the Joplin district. I have been engaged in the mining business all my life, and I never saw better prospects anywhere than we have here. It is only in the last few months that people have begun to realize the mineral wealth of our lands, but the prospectors are pouring in from all directions, searching for valuable locations. “I have absolutely no doubt that both lead and zinc abound in great quantities, and as soon as the new machinery is put in and the mines worked on a scientific basis, I look to see this district loom up as a rival to Joplin. “There is one thing I think our mines will have to do and that is go deeper. Heretofore,

we have only scratched on the surface, hardly ever getting deeper than 60 feet. I believe the most valuable ore is far below this depth. “I remember one mine near Joplin that is 1,100 feet deep. It had practically been abandoned. Then the idea of going deeper was suggested, with the result that today it is netting $1,000 a day. “One great advantage we will have here will be in our freight rates. Of course, St. Louis is our great market, as it is for the mining products of Southwest Missouri. We are so much closer to St. Louis that the saving of freight will give us an enormous advantage over less favored miners in the Southwest.” Ore still abounds in the area, but the cost of getting it out is so steep as to preclude profitability. When that changes, St. Clair might again be known as a rich mining region. Most of the mining in the county was done within 10 miles of St. Clair, but there were other profitable sites as well.

Two Injured In Accident Two women suffered minor injuries on early Sunday when they were involved in a two-vehicle accident on Highway 47 south of College Road. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, Katelyn R. Johnson, 19, of St. Clair, and Debby K. Perr, 44, of Villa Ridge, were injured in the 12:52 a.m. crash on June 17. They both were transported by Union Ambulance to Mercy Hospital Washington. The patrol stated that Johnson was southbound in a 2001 Saturn SL2 on Highway 47 about .3-mile south of College Road when her car ran into a southbound 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Joseph L. Perr, 21, of Villa Ridge. Joseph Perr was making a left-hand turn from Highway 47 into a private driveway when the crash occurred. The patrol stated that an unknown vehicle traveling south behind the Cavalier and in front of the Saturn had stopped abruptly behind Joseph Perr, and Johnson swerved her car to the left to avoid striking that vehicle and collided with the turning Cavalier. According to the patrol’s online report, Debby Perr was a passenger in Johnson’s vehicle. Everyone involved was wearing a safety belt.

Fireworks Show to Honor Fallen Soldiers By Pauline Masson

It may start out like any summer picnic in the park, with balloons, pony rides and cotton candy, but the 2012 Pacific Independence Day Fireworks Show also will feature a special patriotic program for veterans and their families. Organizers have expanded the event to include a memorial to Pacific area men who have fallen in combat and a family walking parade around the park circle where

the most patriotic outfits will be awarded with prizes. The event will take place Sunday, July 1, at the city park on Congress Street. Parking will be allowed on the ballfields in the circle. Activities will begin at 3 p.m. Vendor booths will offer fried tacos, hot dogs, cotton candy, snowcones, popcorn, water, soda and lemonade. Activities will include sand art, face

Lions Host First-Ever Dogapawluza Event By Pauline Masson Pacific Editor

The first-ever Lions Club dog show and competition was held on the grounds of the Pacific Lions Den this past Saturday. The event benefited the Leader Dog for the Blind program. Dogs of all breeds dressed in tutus, hula skirts, cowboy hats, sunglasses and Sunday dresses pranced with their owners to entertain the crowd gathered for the show. About 75 owners and dog lovers gathered at the yellow-taped ring for the twohour show.

With an average of four entries in each of 10 categories, Pacific area pooches showed off their individuality and enthusiasm. Every contestant was considered top dog by its owners who paid the $5 entry fee to show off a unique talent. At the command of their handlers, dogs large and small paraded, stood on hind legs, cuddled, rolled over and played dead at the clap of hands and caught tossed tennis balls in their mouth. The Pacific Lions Club hosted the dog show, titled Dogapawluza, which included the competition, a dem-

The Pacific Police Department has eased into a portion of its new quarters as the Pacific Hall expansion and renovation project continues. Five departments currently share the spacious emergency operations room while the workout room is still to be completed. Still, it feels like a lot of room, one officer said. All departments, once shoe-horned into cramped spaces, made the move into the new offices. For the first time in the known history of the Pacific department, officers have room to work, but it is not all about the space, according to Police Chief Matt Mansell. When totally completed, the new offices will be the epitome of safety and efficiency in police department operations, Mansell said. The public will see the reconstructed government center with the new central entrance with the large word POLICE above the door. Public access to the department is made up a flight of stairs flanked by a handicap accessible ramp on the left and a sidewalk on the right. Access begins in an expanded lobby that for the first time has a public restroom. A window on the right side from the entry offers access to the department records clerk. On the left side from the entry, a bullet-resistant wall and bulletproof window protect the dispatch crew.

There is bulletproof glass throughout the new building. All doors respond to the touch of a security card issued to each member of the department. When the door opens, a computer logs the time of the entry and the individual who entered. The dispatch officers have a large, totally secure work room, wired to connect dispatchers to all departments through a bank of computers. For the first time, Assistant Chief Larry Cook will have an office to himself. The only room in the redesigned department that has an outside window is that of Chief Mansell. For now, half a dozen departments share the large emergency operations (EOC) room, including the patrol sergeant, booking area, detective bureau, school resource officer and code enforcement. When reconstruction of the old department is completed, the large room, already wired with the proper computer jacks, will be set up for the EOC. When called, the major case squad also will use the room. The new facility is about three times larger than the former police department. When totally completed there will be a drive-in sally port for driving a suspect into the department safely, a special security system between the booking area and a public area where family members can visit individuals in jail. “I hope the public will come to admire this modern and professional police headquarters,” Mansell said. “I’m very proud of it.”

I Have to Tell You... Pauline Masson, Editor Samuel Michael Bingham, 1845-1905, folk hero, former mayor and benefactor of Ottawa, Canada, practically lost connection to his descendants but a persistent great-granddaughter of his older brother John couldn’t leave things alone. Karen Bingham grew up in Ottawa, where, all her life, she was aware that her name was the same as the former mayor but she was unsure of her connection to the man who had a street, a school and a park named for him. In 2000, the city voted to move a big cast-iron fountain inscribed to Samuel Bingham from a city storage building to a house her grandfather had built. It still sits there where it is used as a flower planter. At times, Karen looked at the impressive gravestone in Notre Dame Cemetery, with its statue by sculptor Hamilton McCarthy, a copy of the medal Pope Leo XVII gave to Bingham when he was made a chevalier, and wondered. Every old-timer in Ottawa knew the story of how Bingham died. It was a poignant mystery. He was a logger on the Gatineau River and an avid athlete who loved horseback riding, ice skating, snowshoeing, bicycling and canoeing. He was a powerful swimmer and a master at untangling logjams. He also was a micromanager and a workaholic. One day he learned that a string of logs, destined for the paper mill, had jammed on the Gatineau River. He drove himself to the site of the jam in his buggy and worked all afternoon and all night, not leaving until the logjam was cleared. On the way home he drowned when his carriage overturned in the Gatineau River. Some suspected foul play but the authorities thought it was more likely that he fell asleep and the buggy overturned when the horse walked into the river for a drink. His funeral, the largest Ottawa had seen in recent memory, was attended by members of the city council and employees of the Gatineau River. Newspapers recounted his legacy to the city. His nine-page will left bequests to his wife and daughters, his brothers and sisters and their children and to Catholic and Protestant orphanages and hospitals. He was still semi-famous in Karen’s day. Thus begun a family history quest that eventually connected Karen to Pacific, Mo. She learned through that she was indeed connected to the Ottawa folk hero. Samuel’s older brother John was her 2-g grandfather. So her family must have cousins somewhere. Karen and her Uncle Dan, a Canadian CBS employee who now works in Alberta, and fellow family history buff, began a search for Samuel Bingham’s descendants. He and his wife Ellen had six children but only two survived to adulthood, Helene and Mary Rose Mount Carmel, called Carmel by the family. Helene married Andrew Livingston Masson and the couple had three children, Walter Bingham, Edward and Andrew. Census records and ship’s manifests placed the family in New York and Michigan. Then the trail stopped. Finally in early 2012, Karen, who was gaining skill at family history searching, placed a query on the Ancestry message board, “I’m searching for the descendants of Walter Bingham Masson.” For my husband Bob, sitting at his laptop in Pacific, that was a bolt from the blue. He had not heard anything of his father since 1938, when his father disappeared. At first he was dubious about the message, thinking it was a teaser to get him to pay something or join Finally, the lure was too great, he placed an answer on the message board, “If you are who you say you are, I am the son of Walter Bingham Masson. Who is Carmel?” Karen was sitting at her computer in Ottawa when the answer was posted. She had placed her query months earlier. She couldn’t type fast enough. “Carmel was your Grandmother Helene’s sister.” Later that day, a man on the phone identified himself as Dan Bingham. “This is amazing,” he said. “We’ve been looking for you for so long.” This chance encounter changed the itinerary of a driving trip Bob and I had been planning to Massachusetts to do family history research on my 6g-grandfather William Kerley, an interesting guy in his own right, returning by way of Detroit to visit Bob’s brother and his family. It wouldn’t be that much trouble to drive from Massachusetts into Canada and back track to Detroit. When we arrived in Ottawa it was raining. I had caught a cold in Quebec City where I walked two blocks to Mass at the cathedral so I missed the visit to family sites. Karen took Bob to all the family landmarks and monuments, including those on the Masson side. Karen’s father Garry had always supported her hobby of family history. He remembered his own grandfather who lived with his family when he was a boy. They used to walk to the Rideau River together to fish but he had little interest in family history beyond that. He was understandably a little dubious to learn that this supposed third cousin was coming from Missouri because Karen typed something into her computer. “If you’re sure about this, I’ll have them over for lunch,” he said. Meeting Garry Bingham was a shock for both Bob and me. First the two men looked enough alike to be brothers, they not only sounded alike, their speech patterns mimicked each other. Within a few minutes they were finishing each other’s sentences. There was a lot of laughter. Karen and her brother Scott did the serving and the two cousins talked about work careers, fraternal organization and shared pictures of each other’s children and grandchildren. Aside from the snippets of Bingham memorials Ottawa, which sits on the south bank of the St. Lawrence River, is a beautiful city, a great travel destination. There are lots of bridges over the St. Lawrence and Rideau rivers, and like all Canadian cities, church steeples in all directions. The Capitol building is one of those sights you’re sure you’ll never forget. But as late great Samuel Bingham reminds us, you can forget historic things if you don’t stay in touch.

Marissa Tayon won bestdressed cith her 8-year-old Yorkie Winnie who entered as Hula Girl. A large black dog with an unpronounceable name and unknown breed wowed the crowd with his ability to follow voice commands, jumping, rolling over, wiggling his behind and dropping over dead at the clap of his master’s hands, earning the blue ribbon for best trick. Levi Hurst came away with a jar of doggie biscuits by guessing the number in the jar. Ed Reigerix was the master of ceremonies. Judges were Cindy Jones, Wendy Arras and Chris Vassonei. During intermission, Boy Scout Dylan Patton, who plans to build a fenced Pacific Dog Park in the city park as an Eagle Scout project, talked and said funds are still needed. Donations may be sent to Pacific City Hall with a notation for the Eagle Scout dog park. Event sponsors were Pacific Feed, Adorable Dog Grooming, Dirk’s Fund, The K-9 Club, Anna’s Doghouse Grooming, Reed Insurance, Lamar Realty and Beacon Car Wash.


time Achievement Award and Auxiliary Past State President Award. “The election for state officers will take place on Saturday and the new officers will be announced at the banquet,” Eversmeyer said. Since its inception more than 100 years ago, the Eagles have pushed for the founding of Mother’s Day, provided the impetus for Social Security and campaigned to end job discrimination based on age. The Eagles have provided support for medical centers across the country to build and provide research for medical conditions. Eversmeyer said the organization raises millions of dollars every year to combat heart disease and cancer, help disabled kids, uplift the aged and make life a little brighter for everyone. “It really is all about service,” he said. “We raise funds for a lot of organizations.”

Wall of Honor Ceremony A granite monument at Second and Union streets, titled the “Wall of Honor,” lists Pacific area men who have died in combat in wars from World War I to the current conflict. The American Legion Post Auxiliary Unit 320, which created the monument and maintains it, will honor the men in a July 1 candle-lighting ceremony in the city Missourian Photo. park prior to the annual fireworks show.


most patriotic booths and individuals. No bicycles, skateboards or motor vehicles will be allowed in the parade. First-, second- and thirdplace prizes will be offered for the best decorated vendor booth, individual, stroller and wheelchair. Free flags will be distributed to youngsters to wave during the parade. Flags can be picked up at the organizers booth next to the stage. At 8:30 p.m. the Colwell Harris and Paul Williams American Legion Post Unit 320 Auxiliary will present a program honoring the fallen Pacific soldiers who have given their lives in combat. Jack Bone will open the ceremony with an invocation. Rae McElliott will sing the national anthem. The Pacific post is named for Colwell Harris, the first Pacific area man to fall in World War I, and Paul Williams, the first to fall in World War II. Those to be honored in the program are the men whose names are carved on the Second and Union streets Pacific Honor Roll, plus one additional name yet to be engraved, which includes men from all branches of service who served in every war from World War I to the current conflict. Unit 320 Auxiliary began honoring Pacific area military personnel who served during combat shortly af-

ter World War I when they set up the Honor Roll. The theater style marquee that included all who served was later replaced with a permanent granite marker with the names of the fallen engraved on the monument. Space was left to add names of those later killed in action. “We have not stopped honoring all who served in combat,” Michelle Bruns said. “But when the granite monument was installed it was not practical to engrave the names of all veterans so the Auxiliary Unit decided to engrave the names of the men who made the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives.” The word fallen soldier is a generic term used to include all those who died in combat, Bruns said. Names on the granite memorial are men from every branch of service. The list includes only men because so far no women have fallen in combat. Bruns will read the names of each man as a candle is lit and bell rung in memoriam. A special seating area will be set up for families of the fallen soldiers who will be remembered. At 9:30 p.m. the fireworks exhibit will take place. The Pacific tourism group pays for a portion of the fireworks, but organizer Carol Johnson raises money to make up the difference. Some funds are still needed. To contribute, contact Carol Johnson at 314-221-5919. A list of the vendor booths

registered for the afternoon and evening events include: Eagles Aerie 3842 Auxiliary — will offer fried tacos, nachos and popcorn. American Legion Women’s Auxiliary Post 320 — glowin-the-dark items.

Fire District Offers Safety Tips for Fourth of July The Pacific Fire Protection District offers tips for summer safety, especially for Fourth of July cookouts. Every year Americans look forward to summer vacations, camping, family reunions, picnics and the Fourth of July. The popular holiday also frequently brings fires and injuries due to outdoor cooking and recreational fires, fire district officials say. “While summertime should be a time of fun and making happy memories and knowing a few fire safety tips and following safety instructions will help everyone have a safe summer,” they said. The district offers the following safety reminders. When having a cookout, remember propane and charcoal barbecue grills must only be used outdoors. If used indoors, or in any enclosed spaces such as tents, they pose both a fire hazard and the risk of exposing occupants to toxic gases and potential asphyxiation. Position the grill well away from siding, deck railing and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. An estimated 5,700 grill fires occur on residential properties each year in the United States and 32 percent of grill fires on residential properties start on patios, terraces, screened-in porches or courtyards. Place the grill a safe distance from lawn games, play areas and foot traffic and keep children and pets from the grill area. Declare a three-foot “safe zone” around the grill. When using a charcoal grill, purchase the proper starter fluid and store out of reach of children and away from heat sources. Never add charcoal starter fluid when coals or kindling have

already been ignited, and never use any flammable or combustible liquid other than charcoal starter fluid to get the fire going. If using a propane fueled grill, check the propane cylinder hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year. A light soap and water solution applied to the hose will reveal escaping propane quickly by releasing bubbles. If a grill has a gas leak by smell or the soapy bubble test and there is no flame: 1. Turn off the propane tank and grill. 2. If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. 3. If the leak does not stop, call the fire department. If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do not attempt to move the grill. Never store propane cylinders in buildings or garages. If a gas grill is stored inside during the winter, disconnect the cylinder and leave it outside. In recent years, there has been a new concern for firefighters — fire pits. Fire pits are known to be a great source of warmth and ambience. But, with the popularity of fire pits increasing, fire safety has become even more important. There are many things owners should consider while setting up and using a fire pit. Do not use flammable fluids such as gasoline, alcohol, diesel fuel, kerosene and charcoal lighter fluid to light or relight fires. Do not burn trash, leaves, paper, cardboard or plywood and avoid using soft wood such as pine or cedar that likely pop and throw sparks, use of seasoned hardwood is suggested.

Do not allow children to use the fire pit and keep pets away. Always keep a fire extinguisher or garden hose nearby. When preparing to build a fire while camping, follow these campfire safety tips from Smokey Bear. Do not build a fire at a site in hazardous, dry conditions and do not build a fire if the campground, area or event rules prohibit campfires. Find out if the campground has an existing fire ring or fire pit, if there is not an existing fire pit, and pits are allowed, look for a site that is at least 15 feet away from tent walls, shrubs, trees or other flammable objects. Also beware of low-hanging branches overhead. When you’re ready to put out your fire and call it a night, allow the wood to burn completely to ash, if possible. Pour lots of water on the fire; drown all embers, not just Levi Hurst of Robertsville won a jar of doggie biscuits by guessing the number in the the red ones and keep pouring until the hissing sound jar. Also pictured is Levi’s dog, an 8-month old Shar Pei-pit mix. Missourian Photo. stops. Stir the campfire ashes and embers with a shovel then scrape the sticks and logs to remove any embers. Finally, stir and make sure everything is wet and they are cold to the touch. If you do not have water, use dirt. Mix enough dirt or sand with the embers. Continue adding and stirring until all material is cool. Remember: Don’t bury the fire as the fire will continue to smolder and could catch roots on fire that will eventually get to the surface and start a wildfire. The Pacific Fire Protection District wants all residents to have an enjoyable but safe summer. For more information about summer fire safety, visit and click on the citizens tab.
