Andy Unerstall, left, and Tony Gokenbach helped add lights to the tree Monday, Nov. 12. The tree was donated by Steve and Nancy Sebastian. Ornaments and lights were donated by Cowan’s Restaurant. Kluesner family of Fas-Trip provided the use of its bucket truck and Unerstall Construction supplied the genie lift. The crane was provided by Claudia Behrmann. J&W Cycles provided a trailer for hauling the tree and representatives of Washington Electric provided electric help to the crews.

Drive at 80 Percent of Goal n Final Plea for United Way Donations

With just days left in the Franklin County Area United Way Drive, organizers are pushing to reach its ambitious $1 million goal. So far, 80.2 percent of the goal has been reached. Pledges and direct gifts total $802,668, according to Paula Obermark, executive director. “One final appeal is being made to every individual, company and organization in the area to make their donation by Nov. 20, the day

before we announce our goal attainment,” Obermark said. Those who have not given may drop donations at the United Way office, 301 W. Front St., Washington. Donations also may be mailed to P.O. Box 3, Washington, MO 63090 or submitted online, at www. “Even if you have already given please consider giving a little more,” Obermark said. “The need is great. I don’t believe too many

people know or understand that our reserve funds are exhausted.” Giving Is Critical Obermark said that even with reserve funds being added to annual drive contributions, the United Way has not been able to meet the needs of its health and human service agencies the last four years. “We had over $1 million in agency requests this year and could only fund $741,000,” Obermark noted.

Washington citizens will get a chance to weigh in on the city’s proposed plan to annex adjacent property to the west, south and east of the current city limits. A survey asking city residents to indicate whether or not they support annexation will be mailed out with the monthly utility bills. City Administrator Jim Briggs said the November bills are scheduled to be mailed this week, probably by Thursday. Residents are asked to complete and return the surveys by Saturday, Dec. 15, Briggs said. The survey asks the question: “Should the city council proceed with submitting the annexation plan to the voters of Washington?” There are spaces to check “yes” or “no” to that question as well as a space for comments. A message on the form from Mayor Sandy Lucy reads: “The mayor and city council are seeking your opinion on the annexation issue currently being considered. We would greatly appreciate your opinion and comments on this important issue. “The survey can be returned to city hall at 405 Jefferson St. or it can be dropped off at the library or placed in the drop box at the library entrance. “Thank you for your time on this important issue for your city.” In June, following a year-long study and several revisions, the Washington Planning and Zoning Commission recommended an annexation plan to the city council which then held a workshop and is proposing to hold individual workshops on each of the various annexation areas. The dates for those individual workshop sessions are Nov. 26, west area; Jan.

MoDOT Close To Acquiring Route 100 Right of Way

New Judge In Weinhaus Felony Case

By Ed Pruneau

Missourian Managing Editor

The Missouri Department of Transportation is close to acquiring all the right of way needed for the next phase of the Highway 100 widening project, a MoDOT official said. The project will involve constructing additional lanes from a point just west of Highway 47 to west of High Street. The city and MoDOT have entered into an agreement to share the cost of the projected $12 million project. MoDOT negotiated to acquire five parcels of property needed for the widening. “We’ve settled on all the parcels, and we expect to close on those soon,” said Judy Wagner, MoDOT area engineer. The terms of the settlements are in “final draft review,” she said this week. Meanwhile, MoDOT is close to seeking bids from construction firms for the 1.5-mile-long • See Route 100 Page 2A

The felony case against Jeffrey Weinhaus, the man who was shot during an armed confrontation with Missouri State Highway Patrol investigators in September, has been transferred to a different judge. Last week, Presiding Circuit Judge Gael Wood assigned the case to Associate Circuit Judge Stan Williams after Weinhaus’ attorney filed a motion for a change of judge. On Friday, Judge Williams received the case and moved it to Dec. 13 for an announcement, according to online court records. The case had been in Associate Circuit Judge Dave Hoven’s court. Judge Hoven recently denied prosecution and defense motions seeking both a reduction and increase in his bond and a state motion calling for a psychiatric evaluation of the defendant. Weinhaus, 45, is charged with one misdemeanor and seven felony counts related to the Sept. 22 confrontation at a gas station south of St. Clair and a previous investigation stemming from allegations that the man made threats • See Weinhaus Page 2A

“Loving Hearts, for example, was forced to reduce its days of operation from five days per week to three days. Many of our agencies and programs simply do not have the funds to meet the needs of our citizens.” One community leader, L.B. Eckelkamp, said that the last several years have been difficult. “As we all know, the last few years have been very difficult ones for so many of our neighbors who count on our United Way for help,” he said. “We really need to top our million dollar goal to be able to fund all requests for assistance. Please give generously.” Making financial contributions has been made harder with job loss and other economic problems, said Ann Schroeder, Franklin County commissioner. “Franklin County has been hurt by job loss, home foreclosures, small business closings, and shortened working hours resulting in declining incomes and revenue. United Way serves all of Franklin County, all communities both small and large, all ages, our neighbors, and our fellow employees, those with disabilities, our veterans, our children, our schools, and our elderly,” Schroeder said. “United Way is an efficient way to reach all com-

Every dollar does make a difference to those who need our help.” Washington Mayor Sandy Lucy said she is impressed with the way United Way provides a “hand up” and not a “hand out.” “It truly is (the United Way’s) goal to encourage their clients to be independent and self-sustaining,” she said. “I find this to be an integral part of helping others and applaud their commitment to build better communities. The United Way needs our help to provide these services.” Mission The mission of the United Way is to build better communities. Services are provided in four different areas: caring for the elderly and disabled, nurturing and protecting our children and young people, strengthening families to be self-sufficient and independent, and providing emergency assistance to those in need. This leads to healthier citizens, safer neighborhoods and stronger communities. This past year, the United Way helped more than 70,000 people in 35 communities to receive health and human services.

West Area The annexation area west of the Washington city limits includes a large tract of ground north of Westlink Industrial Drive and south of West Main Street, a small parcel along the south side of Bluff Road just west of Heidmann Industrial Park and pockets of property north of Highway 100 surrounded by land that’s in the city limits as well as Highway 100 right of way along stretches outside the city limits. East Area The proposed east area includes large areas of agricultural property on the north and south sides of Highway 100, including parcels along Bieker and South Point roads and the 60-acre parcel purchased by the Washington School District that lies east of St. John’s Road and south of Old Highway 100. The latest plan also proposes to take in property north of Old Highway 100 to the Missouri River, from the existing city limits to a point east of St. John’s Road.

The project is slated to be constructed in 2013-14. The city recently deposited $3,513,492 with the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission under the cost-sharing agreement for the improvement project. Total cost of the project is estimated at $12,082,902 which includes engineering, right of way acquisition, right of way incidental, utility relocations, construction and construction engineering. That leaves the city’s total share at $6,041,451. The city is funding its share of the 50-50 project out of the half-cent transportation sales tax approved by voters six years ago.

The alleged threats were made by Weinhaus on his Internet video blog site. He denies that he ever made any direct threats against anyone. However, some took his statements to be threatening and after an initial investigation Judge Hoven issued a search warrant for the seizure of his computer. Investigators with the highway patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control went to serve the search warrant Aug. 22 and when Weinhaus came to the door they said they smelled marijuana smoke. After Weinhaus refused to let them search the home they obtained another search warrant

and inside they seized a misdemeanor amount of marijuana and some pills, later identified as containing morphine, authorities allege. Then on Sept. 11, troopers arranged to meet Weinhaus at the MFA Oil gas station on Highway K, south of Route 30, under the pretext of returning his computers and video equipment. But they actually were there to serve the Franklin County warrant. When the man got out of his car, troopers told him he was under arrest. They noticed Weinhaus was wearing a holstered pistol and when they ordered him to take his hands away from the gun, he unstrapped the holster and began drawing the weapon, according to a patrol report. They then fired several times out of fear for their safety, the patrol said. Weinhaus was hospitalized until early October with gunshot wounds he sustained in the incident. He was arrested on the multi-count warrant Nov. 1 when he appeared in court for the first time with his attorney who asked the judge to reduce the $50,000 cash-only bond to $7,500 cash or surety bond. Felony charges against Weinhaus include possession of a controlled substance, interfering with a judicial officer, two counts each of attempted assault on a law enforcement officer and armed criminal action and one count of resisting arrest. He also is charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana. The Downtown Washington Holiday Open House will take place this weekend, Nov. 16-18.

Under the agreement, the city will use a $950,000 federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) grant it received for improving the Highway A intersection. The plan is to widen Highway 100 from two to five lanes — four traffic lanes and one center turn lane — add dual left turn lanes on Route A/Jefferson Street and add pedestrian facilities and signalized intersections that comply with federal ADA standards. All of the widening is proposed to be done on the north side of the highway which is expected to result in some cost savings. When done, this work will complete the highway widening all the way from High Street to Interstate 44, a project that was promised when Washington voters approved the half-cent transportation sales tax in 2005.

Security Review At Administration Center Under Way By Bill Miller Jr.

Missourian Staff Writer

A security assessment at the Franklin County Administration Building is underway at the request of county officials. “It’s a precautionary measure to look at everything we do and make sure our employees and the public are protected,” Franklin County Presiding Commissioner John Griesheimer said Tuesday. The security review follows months of contentious commission meetings where a small group of citizens and some county officials have engaged in heated exchanges over a host of issues. Last week, just after the commission meeting ended, a regular critic of the commission and Griesheimer traded verbal jabs. The week before, the same man left the commission meeting after an outburst and went to the first floor lobby and began yelling. One county official, who asked not to be identified, said she was scared when certain people entered the building and that other county employees feel the same way. “It’s gotten out of hand,” she said. “It’s not just the regulars either. I know the

employees on the first floor have had to deal with irate citizens over assessments and other things.” Capt. Don Jones, of the Franklin County Sheriff ’s Department, is performing the review. He addressed the commission at Tuesday’s regular commission meeting and advised them he had interviewed many of the employees and department heads in the administration building. “I’m trying to address some of these issues and some of the ongoing security issues people are concerned with,” Jones said. “We are interested in their suggestions and we are looking at issues with providing escorts to and from the building.” Griesheimer said the issue of security at the administration building was discussed at a recent department head/elected officials meeting. “Elected officials have told me they feel uncomfortable,” Griesheimer said. “Over the course of the last two years, I’ve talked with Gary (Sheriff Toelke) about security issues and we resumed those talks recently. He was gracious enough to make Don available to help us with the review.” Griesheimer said part of the review would be a dis-

Two Men Injured In Separate Cycle Crashes in County Two St. Charles County men were injured Saturday, Nov. 10, in separate motorcycle crashes in northeastern Franklin County, the Missouri State Highway Patrol reported. The crashes happened less than two hours apart on Highway T, between Labadie and St. Albans, according to preliminary patrol reports. The first crash was reported at 12:40 p.m. on Highway T at Fairfield Ridge Road. Christopher E. Brandt, 56, was driving a 2007 Harley-Davidson Super Glide westbound on Route T and was going too fast for road conditions, the patrol said. Brandt’s motorcycle crossed the centerline and ran off the left side of the road. Brandt was ejected, according to the report. He was taken by Meramec Ambulance to Mercy Hospital St. Louis, Creve Coeur, with apparent moderate injuries. His motorcycle sustained moderate damage, the patrol reported. The second crash involved an eastbound 2012

Harley-Davidson Street Glide driven by Michael E. Porter, 60. According to the patrol, Porter was inattentive and his motorcycle ran off the right side of Highway T and struck a tree. Porter also was transported by Meramec Ambulance to Mercy Hospital St. Louis, Creve Coeur, with moderate injuries, according to the preliminary report. The 2:34 p.m. crash happened at Adda Road, a short distance east of Fairfield Ridge Road, the patrol said. Porter’s motorcycle also sustained moderate damage. The crashes happened west of the Engemann Woods Natural Area off Highway T.

cussion of installing metal detectors at the main entrance. He said that in the meantime, sheriff deputies and private security contractors will continue to attend every commission meeting. Second District Commissioner Ann Schroeder said the security assessment was appropriate but so was a review for employees of all the existing security systems. “It’s time to do a security review again for all of our employees,” she said. “We have a lot of new employees and we haven’t reviewed security procedures since we opened the building. It’s not just about the (safety) of commissioners. And we’re not doing this because of any one person. All of our employees need to know what the safety procedures are in an emergency.” Griesheimer said the assessment should be completed in a couple of weeks. He acknowledged there have been times when he felt concerned for his safety. “Some of the meetings have gotten pretty contentious,” he added.

City Revises Trash Pickup Schedule for Thanksgiving There will be no residential trash or recycling pickups in Washington next Thursday, Nov. 22, due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Extensive Damage at Church Authorities are investigating an incident involving extensive property damage at a Franklin County church over the weekend. The sheriff ’s office is asking for the public’s help in solving the crime. County deputies were called shortly after 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, to the Calvary Pentecostal Church on American Inn Road at Villa Ridge. They spoke with church members who reported finding damage to exterior church windows. Rocks and poles had been thrown at the windows, the sheriff ’s office said.

Man Accused of Firing at Son

A Franklin County man accused of firing a shotgun during an altercation is facing a felony charge in the Sunday, Nov. 11, incident. Floyd J. Huskey, 48, Sullivan, is charged with one count of first-degree domestic assault. His bond was set at $50,000 in the case. The sheriff’s office said deputies responded to a report of an assault involving a firearm at Huskey’s home in the 4000 block of Highway H, north of Sullivan. The call came in at about 11:40 a.m. Deputies learned that Huskey allegedly fired a 12-gauge

shotgun at his son who was in a car. The man allegedly fired the gun at the driver’s side window, according to an initial report filed with the prosecuting attorney’s office. The sheriff’s office said the suspect also allegedly threatened to shoot deputies, and himself, if they came to arrest him. Based on that, the sheriff’s office activated the department’s SWAT team while other deputies established a containment zone around the house. Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers responded to assist deputies at the scene.

While deputies were establishing a perimeter around the property they learned that Huskey had left with a relative prior to deputies arriving at the scene. The relative drove the suspect to the Sullivan police department where he surrendered to deputies. Huskey then was taken to the county jail for booking and processing. A judge later signed the felony warrant charging the man. The $50,000 cash-only bond includes a special provision that Huskey not have any contact with the victim in the case.

“Untreated hearing loss may increase your risk of Alzheimer’s” “A study by Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins School of Medicine demonstrated that for every 10-decibel loss in hearing, your risk increases 20%!” According to Frank R. Lin M. D., “When hearing is a constant struggle, your brain shuffles more of its resources toward deciphering what’s being said, and that can sap your ability to form and keep memories. What’s more, being hard of hearing is isolating and the less people socialize, the faster their brains age.”

District Asks Patrons, Students to Complete Technology Survey By Susan Miller

Missourian Staff Writer

Students, parents, staff and patrons of the Washington School District are being asked to complete a technology survey. The online survey is being done in partnership with Project Tomorrow, a nationwide educational service that provides free and confidential surveys to schools and nonprofit organizations. The data collected will help guide the district’s technology advancement, said Superintendent Dr.

Tannenbaum Auction Will Be November 15 The Homestead at Hickory View will host the fourth annual Tannenbaum auction this holiday season. Ticket sales to the celebration and proceeds from the auction will benefit Friends of Emmaus. Donated and trees, topiaries, wreaths, centerpieces and specialty items will be available for viewing at The Homestead at Hickory View or online at Bidding will close Nov. 15. Entries will be judged with winners announced at the awards party Thursday, Nov. 8. Winning entries and all trees go to the public auction Nov. 15 at 8:30 p.m. Tickets for the celebration are available at The Homestead at Hickory View. For more information people may call The Homestead at 636-239-1941 or email

Lori VanLeer. “It also will provide to assist with national educational issues as well,” she said. “We are asking all of our patrons to do their part and ‘speak up’ for students and the future of education.” Those without Internet access should visit the Washington Public Library or contact one of the district’s principals who can accommodate them. VanLeer said already nearly 300 staff members have completed the survey and students are starting to take part through their technology classes. The survey will be open until Dec. 14. Work Continues VanLeer said the district’s Focus Group 3 which is working to develop a plan to best incorporate technology into the daily work environment of district students will meet again Wednesday at the Technology and Learning Center. “The steering committee met again last week to talk through some things,” she said. “We are still in the collection phases and that’s why it’s so important for everyone to complete the survey. “We still have a great deal to do, but we are making progress,” she added. “The survey will take only 15 minutes to complete, she said, and will produce great data. “We will get our data back by Feb. 1 if not earlier.” VanLeer said she also has been meeting with Assistant Superintendent Dr. Judy Straatmann to go through goals, time lines and action plans that need to be developed in order to roll out the districtwide technology plan and future 1:1 (one student/

one tablet) deployment. At Wednesday’s meeting, officials from the Pattonville School District will share how they rolled out the 1:1 program this year. Pattonville is using laptops. “It should be interesting, and I am grateful that they agreed to come out and present to our group,” she said. At last month’s meeting, a presentation on iPad utilization in the classroom was given by two St. Francis Borgia Regional High School students. Borgia launched its iPad initiative this year where traditional textbooks have been replaced by iBooks and every student and teacher is using an iPad and stylus. Washington Middle School social studies teacher Zack Kosark also spoke to the group about how he integrates technology and social media into his classroom curriculum. Kosark described his YouTube video lectures and how he utilizes Facebook and Twitter to prepare his students for upcoming exams. He also addressed social media safety concerns and fielded questions from group members. The steering committee also previously met with an expert in computer planning, execution and assessment. The discussion also included financial planning, infrastructure development, faculty development, curriculum integration, device procurement and end user support. VanLeer said no decision has been made on whether the district would utilize laptops or some other tablet.

Meter Project To Resume In December By Karen Butterfield Missourian Staff Writer

Crews from Pedal Valve will remobilize in Washington the first week of December, according to Kevin Quaethem, water/wastewater superintendent. The city contracted with Siemens Building Technologies and the firm’s installation partner, Pedal Valves, Inc. (PVI), to install the new residential and commercial iPERL water meters throughout town this year. PVI was pulled from the job in October because of an inventory ordering issue. “The equipment is in stock now, and it looks like we are tentatively set up to remobilize the first week of December, earlier if possible,” Quaethem said. The crews are in the final stage of installation, however, Quaethem said it would be hard to estimate the final completion date. There are about 700 meters that still need to be installed. Crews will use a

Completion originally was estimated by the end of the year. “We’re still shooting to be complete by then,” Quaethem said. “We had to postpone by one month, so the project may run a little longer — hopefully no later than February.” Quaethem noted that residents who have not had their meters switched out can expect a phone call to make an appointment the last week of November or first week of December.

It’s Not Too Late to Enter Holiday Parade of Lights

The Missourian

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Page 7A

n Takes Place Friday After Thanksgiving

By Susan Miller

Missourian Staff Writer

It’s not too late to sign up for the Holiday Parade of Lights, traditionally held the Friday after Thanksgiving. “We have about 23 entries and will accept 50,” said Danielle Grotewiel, project coordinator for Downtown Washington Inc., which sponsors the parade. “All entries must be decoratively lighted,” she said. The deadline to enter is Friday. The parade will begin at 6 p.m. at the corner of Main and Cedar streets. It will travel south on Cedar Street; east on Fifth Street; north on Elm Street; east on Second Street; north on Jefferson Street; and west on Main Street, ending near the Farmers’ Market.

This is the same route as in past years. Santa and Mrs. Claus will get off at the market to greet children and participate in the Mayor’s Tree Lighting, which will occur immediately after the parade. This is the third year for the tree lighting. Santa Claus will join Mayor Sandy Lucy in turning on the tree lights. The tree was set up Monday at the corner of the Main and Elm parking lot, in the same spot as the fountain. The tree has been decorated, but the lights will not go until after the parade. Grotewiel said local elementary students will sing four Christmas carols just prior to the lighting. All children are invited to participate and should meet on the front steps at St. Francis Borgia Church.

Christian Choir to Perform Sunday The Annual Community Thanksgiving Service with the Combined Christian Choir will be held this Sunday, Nov. 18, at 3 p.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Washington. This year the choir will be joined by the East Central Children’s Chorale. The service — “All Are Welcome” — will include congregational music along with several pieces sung just by the choirs. Interspersed throughout the service are prayers of thanksgiving for the blessings of the year, including a bountiful harvest, faith, family and friends, home and country. All concerts by the Combined Christian Choirs are signed for the deaf. The choir is directed by Paige Byrne Shortal and ac-

companied by Lucy Tobben, along with a band of musicians from various congregations. The concert collection will be used to purchase a music station for the Washington Jaycees All-Abilities Park already in progress in Washington. The 25-member ECC choir of young voices is codirected by Sheila Baer and Malinda Thompson. Our Lady of Lourdes Church, 1014 Madison Ave. in Washington, is fully accessible. There is no charge for admission. There is a reception after the concert with cookies provided by the choir members. For more information, people may call Shortal at 314-583-1522 or the church at 636-239-3520.

Residential & Commercial



Christmas murals decorated by local schools and churches will be on display at the market and unoccupied storefronts in downtown will be decorated as well. Santa and Mrs. Claus will again serve as grand marshals. They will ride in a 1912 Maxwell, provided by the Washington Historical Society. The antique car will be on a trailer. There will be two judging categories for the parade: nonprofit and business/individual. The top winners in the nonprofit division will receive a trophy and the first-place entry will receive $100. Trophies will be presented to the top three winners in the business/ individual division. Entries can choose not to be judged. The corporate sponsor of the parade this year is the Bank of Franklin County. For more information, people may call the downtown office, 636-239-1743. Schools, churches, Scouts, businesses, service organizations and other groups are encouraged to participate. Floats, decorated vehicles and walking groups are planned. No Santas are allowed on any of the entries. The cost to enter is $10.

Warners’ Warm-Up Coat Drive Ends Wednesday Warners’ Warm-Up, a countywide coat drive, ends Wednesday. The coats will be sorted for distribution this Saturday, Nov. 17, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Washington Presbyterian Church. Area businesses and schools have been serving as collection sites.

Anyone interested in volunteering with the sorting should email whittemore. or call 314629-8448.

A Washington man was being held on a $5,000 cash-only bond after being charged last week with peace disturbance. The misdemeanor charge against Christopher K. Hickman, 39, stems from a Nov. 7 incident, police said, in which the suspect allegedly attempted to force his way into an apartment where a 17-year-old girl was living. The victim told police that Hickman came to her apartment door about 7 p.m. and began talking to her and asked for her telephone number, according to police. She said after she gave him a false number he left but returned a short time later.

When she tried to close the door he tried to force his way in, police said. The victim got the door closed, then reported the incident, according to police.

Busch Descendant Opens Business in Old Brewery By Meredith Hood

Missourian Staff Writer

The Busch Brewery in Washington is back in business. Only tanks of hops and spices have been replaced by vats containing hot wax. And bottles of frothy amber liquid have been supplemented by jars in dozens of different sizes holding clusters of vibrant pink, deep green, calming blue, tropical yellow and pure white. The aroma of nutty, malting grains has been covered by fresh sweet fragrances, some fruity like, raspberry or mango papaya, others like apple butter or cappuccino. “You should have smelled it before I got here,” said the greatgreat-grandson of John B. Busch Sr., Kevin Wolff, who acquired a candle company from Sue Croft in Clinton, Mo., earlier this year and set up shop in the building that housed his family’s business more than 50 years ago. Wolff ’s business is called Sue Croft Candles at the Washington Brewery. In 1953, Ulrich Busch Jr., Wolff ’s great-uncle, sold the brewery and since then different owners have leased parts of the old brewery to various businesses. Sales offices, restaurants and a day spa have occupied the brewery at one time or another. The Busch mansion became the city VFW Hall. Wolff said his main objective is to maintain the integrity of the product he’s acquired and preserve the history at his place of business. He spent a few weeks over the summer learning the process of production and how to use the tools designed by the Crofts. Later, he might experiment with his own flavors and mold designs. Sue Croft sold her products wholesale and had some online sales, according to Wolff. Some online vendors, like eBay, don’t interest Wolff but updating the business website,, retaining some of wholesale buyers and finding new ones are priorities. Wolff has two full-time shop assistants and one part-time worker to help with electronic sales. “I’m starting from the ground floor, you can say,” he remarked. Wolff said a building inspection is scheduled for mid-November and his goal is to begin sales in time for the holidays. But building up the supply of candles ready for sale takes time. “Everything is hand poured,” he explained, noting a Sue Croft candle isn’t a wick surrounded by one type of wax. Drops of hardened wax, similar in size and shape to a thim-

United Bank Makes a Donation The United Bank of Union reported a $9,899 donation to the Franklin County Area United Way. Some of those funds were raised with a gun raffle.

Business Celebrates Anniversary ble, are put in candle jars before the base wax. The result is a more colorfully and dynamically scented product, he said. Pink drops in rich brown wax make chocolate and cherries. A maple base over pecan drops is almost as good as a Thanksgiving pie. Plumaberry, like it sounds, has deep purple plum drops in a raspberry base. Every scent: honeysuckle, French vanilla, carrot cake, rose, clean laundry, pumpkin pie, fresh pine and many others feature at least one drop in addition to the base wax for a bold, long lasting candle. “Everything’s pretty much fresh,” Wolff said. In addition to the candle production materials, Wolff received an extensive collection of antiques from Croft and her husband. Some larger items such as a pump organ, pianos, jukeboxes, dressers and a record player are fully or in the process of being restored by Croft’s husband. A number of smaller things such as vases, tableware and pottery are still in boxes. Within a few weeks of having candle sales up and running, Wolff will open other parts of

the brewery as an antique sales showroom. The 23,000 square foot facility is located on Busch Avenue off Jefferson Street. The entrance to Wolff ’s business is on the back side of the property, just below the banquet hall.

Bubba Shrimp & Seafood Market in Downtown Washington will observe its fifth anniversary this December. Owners Jim and Sandy Atkinson said the market has evolved over the past five years due to customer requests and suggestions. The market specializes in wild caught shrimp from the Gulf of Mexico and now has a full lunch menu including items like “U-Peel-Em” shrimp, seafood sandwiches and salads, shrimp tacos, soups and gumbos. The market also offers spring, summer and fall specials. Sushi is available Thursday through Saturday. The market also sells the DryerNet, which was developed by Jim Atkinson. The DryerNet is attached to a dryer vent and releases heat from the dryer into the home to save on electric bills. Bubba Shrimp is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Undercover on Deliveries CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch is putting undercover officers on special assignment delivering pizzas — part of an effort to stop violence against pizza deliverymen. Two drivers for Imo’s Pizza have been shot to death in St. Louis County since May, including 39-year-old Brian

Johnson, who was found dead in his car Monday night. A suspect is charged with second-degree murder and first-degree robbery. KMOX Radio reports that starting this weekend, undercover police will deliver for Imo’s in high-risk neighborhoods. Undercover police will also eventually do the same for other pizza companies.

Eight Bids for Replacement Of Herbst Road Bridge By Bill Miller Jr.

Missourian Staff Writer

The Franklin County Commission received eight bids to replace Herbst Road bridge, located five miles east of Union. The bids were opened at Tuesday’s regular commission meeting. The project includes grading and constructing a single span, 50-foot by 28-foot prestressed concrete voided slab beam bridge with associated roadwork. The county will be reimbursed for 80 percent of the cost through the federal surface transportation pro-

gram. Second District Commissioner Ann Schroeder said the bids would be reviewed by the county highway department and a recommendation would be made to the commission as to which bid to select. The project is expected to be completed in 2013. The Herbst Road project is one of several STP bridge replacements going on in the county. Others include a bridge on Country Club Road and Enoch’s Knob Road bridge over Boeuf Creek. The bids that were opened Tuesday are listed below:

Chester Bross Construction, Palmyra — $342,715.00; Don Schnieders Excavating Company Inc., Jefferson City — $368,654.15; KJ Unnerstall Construction Co., Washington — $362,436.00; Kozeny-Wagner Inc., Arnold — $456,443.60; Krupp Construction, Inc., Ellisville — $324,641.00; NB West Contracting Co., Inc., St. Louis — $342,588.40; Pace Construction Company, LLC; St. Louis — $384,022.00; and R.V. Wagner Inc., St. Louis — $328,448.99.

Wessels: Manufacturing Expo Was a Positive Experience Organizers of the Manufacturing Expo agreed that the event was a success. The expo, which featured more than 20 local manufacturing businesses, was held Thursday, Nov. 8, at Washington High School. “The feedback we’ve received from businesses and school administration has been really positive,” said Mark Wessels, Washington Area Chamber of Commerce president. “We’re really pleased.” The expo was organized by the Chamber, the city of Washington, East Central College, Washington School District and St. Francis Borgia Regional High School. Students were invited to attend the expo prior to the public session. More than 300 students attended the expo, as well as 75 community members. “I think it was eye-opening for the kids,” said Dot Schowe, PR director at East Central College. Schowe said she was impressed with the students, several of whom came during school hours and returned during the community session with their parents. The last manufacturing expo was held in 2006. “Comments have been so positive that the committee is talking about doing it annually,” Wessels said. Initially, he said, the committee talked about hosting a manufacturing expo every other year. “Students were engaged in the way we hoped they would be,” he said. “They were asking questions about what the manufacturers do, skills for employment and other questions. We felt re-

New Email Tool Added to State Treasurer’s Site The state treasurer’s office announced that people using its unclaimed property website at now may share search results with family and friends by the click of a button. Treasurer Clint Zweifel said over 1,700 people have utilized the tool since it was implemented in August. People may use the share function on the site by entering a friend or family member’s last name and the first few letters of their first name in the search bar. Any matching property will show up and can be shared by clicking a button below the search results. Since 2009, Zweifel’s office has returned $133 million in unclaimed property to more than 418,000 account owners. The average unclaimed account is $300, Zweifel said. “Just think how popular you will be at holiday events if you help someone find $300,” he said. There are 58 accounts worth more than $100,000 each in the state, including one in Franklin County.

ally good about it.” Wessels said the idea first came from the Student-Business Partnership, which is facilitated by the Chamber. Wessels added that the manufacturing expo in Union, held in April, was a reminder to host one in Washington. The committee has been planning since about that time, he said. Schowe said the planning committee will send out an evaluation form for exhibitors’ input and suggestions for the next expo. Participants Manufacturing expo participants included CG Power Systems USA, Clemco Industries Corp., Elite Survival Systems, Enduro Binders, G H Tool & Mold, Hellebusch Tool & Die, Intek Corp., Melton Machine & Control Co., Missouri Meerschaum Co., Missourian Publishing Co.; Parker Hannifin-Sporlan

Division, Rabco Midwest Inc., RTI Tradco Inc., Sheltered Workshops Inc., Stork Fabricators Inc., TEMCO Inc., The Chest Inc., Valent Aerostructures, Washington Metal Fabricators, Ziglin Signs Inc. and Washington Vinyl. Representatives of East Central College and the Four Rivers Career Center, the 353 Redevelopment Corp., the Civic Industrial Corporation, Washington School District and SFBRHS also were in attendance. The event was designed as an opportunity for companies to distribute job applications and accept resumes, as well as for students, business owners and community members to network. Participants were able to gather information on career opportunities, expected salary ranges, education, training, experience and skills.

The Mid-Missouri Fine Arts Society just opened a new Christmas display of member artists works at the Train Station Art gallery on Front Street, Washington. Included is a variety of pieces in oil painting, acryl-

ics, watercolors, photography and ceramics. There is a selection of small and miniature items for sale that can be Christmas gifts or home decorations. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

‘We’re Just Getting Started’

Local Barbecue Competitors Continue Winning Streak, Unite to Try to Win 2013 Team of the Year By Karen Cernich, Missourian Features Editor


n the world of barbecue cooking, there’s a long-standing rule for how to achieve the best taste — low and slow. Cook the meat over low heat for a long period of time. Not any more. Two local cooks are turning that tried and true technique on its head. Jeff Brinker of B&B BBQ, Washington, and Tim Scheer of Shake ’N’ Bake BBQ, New Haven, are following the exact opposite formula — hot and fast. Before you go thinking they are fools, consider this: The men have won a series of barbecue contests with this method. The secret, they say, is their take on “the ugly drum smoker,” which isn’t so ugly. “We’ve taken the concept, cleaned it up, tweaked the design to make it user friendly and more reliable for contests,” said Scheer, noting the result is a marriage of “moisture and flavor.” Barbecue contests are something Scheer and Brinker know a lot about. Both men have been competing separately with their barbecue for years, and most recently have decided to team up and compete under the name, the online shop that Scheer opened earlier this year and which also has a storefront component attached to his Scheer Landscape Company located in Washington. The men have won dozens of awards in contests all across the country and are aiming to win even more in 2013 with hopes that by teaming up, they will earn enough points to be named Team of the Year by the Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS), an international nonprofit organization of barbecue and grilling enthusiasts with over 15,000 members worldwide. Just last month, the men competed together under the Gateway name and won Grand Champion at the Holy Smokers competition in Valley Park. “We’re just getting started with what we can do,” Brinker remarked. The biggest awards the men have won to date were at the American Royal contest in Kansas City. It’s the largest contest in the country with some 545 teams competing, said Brinker. Ribbons are awarded to the top 10 teams in each of four categories — chicken, ribs, pork shoulder and brisket. There’s also an overall grand champion and a reserve grand champion, Brinker explained. Six judges evaluate each entry and give a score of one to nine for appearance, taste and tenderness, he said, noting the scores are weighted with taste being more important and appearance being the least important. A perfect score in any of the four categories is 180, which is rare to achieve, said Brinker, adding that teams who earn a 180 are given a gold pin. This year, his team, B&B BBQ, earned two gold pins at the same contest, the American Royal. “We were the first team in 2012 to do that,” he said, noting the prizes were for his chicken and pork. Still, those two perfect scores weren’t enough to win him the grand champion or even the reserve grand champion. “We ended up fourth overall,” said Brinker. “That’s how tough the competition was.” A perfect overall score is a 720, and neither Brinker nor Scheer has ever known a team to earn that. A 680 is usually enough to win a contest, they said, and at this year’s American Royal, B&B finished with a score of 697. Cooking for a barbecue contest can be tricky, the men agreed. There’s a certain amount of subjectivity that comes into play. “It’s easy to cook barbecue that your

friends like, but it’s not as easy to cook barbecue that six judges you don’t know like,” said Brinker. “You want to wow them, not offend them, and if you make your barbecue hot (spicy), but two judges don’t like it hot, then you don’t win.” That’s why the men keep in mind what region they are in for any particular contest. “We don’t modify what we do much,” said Brinker, “but if we’re in Georgia, we will be heavier on the vinegar in our sauce. “If we’re in KC, we’ll make it sweeter. In Memphis, we’ll lay off the sauce and make it more tomato-based. In California, we’ll make it fruitier.” ‘Hot and Fast’ Scheer can still remember the first time he saw Brinker cooking his barbecue “hot and fast” with an “ugly drum smoker,” and promptly gave him trouble about it — until he sampled the ribs Brinker had cooked this way. “It would usually take four to six hours to cook ribs,” said Scheer. “Jeff did it in two, and they were the best ribs I’d ever tasted. “That sold me.” And it was no fluke. They took the drum smoker to contests and cooked their meat “hot and fast.” It drew a lot of stares, said Scheer. At right, Jeff and Tricia Brinker (center and right) show ribbons and trophies their B&B BBQ won at a contest earlier this year in Lincoln, Ill., and below right, at the American Royal competition in Kansas City. Below left is the Tim and Terri Scheer family with awards they won at the Roots n Blues n BBQ contest in Columbia, where their Shake ’N’ Bake BBQ was named Reserve Grand Champion.   Submitted Photos.

Tim Scheer of Shake ’N’ Bake BBQ in New Haven and Jeff Brinker of B&B BBQ of Washington are using Gateway Drum Smokers sold at Scheer’s store in Washington to cook their award-winning barbecue “hot and fast.”   MIssourian Photo. “We showed up Saturday morning and cooked in four hours instead of 14 . . . and won. “We won a top 10, then sixth (place) and then first.” Now the barbecue duo want to share the secret of their success. Gateway BBQ Store is offering a class on how to cook the “hot and fast” way using a drum smoker. For more information, people can contact Scheer at 636-390-9898. Cash Prizes Winning these contests is a source of pride for any barbecue aficionado, but it also is a source of cash. An individual contest can give out between $5,000 and $50,000 in total prize money, said Scheer.

The prize for grand champion alone can be $1,000 or more. Although neither Brinker nor Scheer were willing to say how much money they have earned, they both admit to being “ahead for the year.” The most Scheer has won total for a single contest is $3,500. For Brinker, his best is $5,000 at one event. Of course, competing comes with a significant amount of expenses, anywhere from $700 to $1,000 on average for a single contest. That includes the cost of meat, which, Brinker said, you shouldn’t skimp on if you want to win. “When I first started competing, I could go to Sam’s (Club), get all of the meat I needed, and win,” he said. “Now it’s different. You have to buy specialized meats, specific chicken. “If you expect to win, you’d better be cooking a $6 per pound brisket.” Love to Compete Both Brinker and Scheer grew up on farms, but neither of their fathers were big on barbecue. It’s a taste and sport they acquired as adults. “I was exposed to barbecue through my job,” said Brinker. “I do a lot of traveling all over Memphis and the Carolinas.” As someone who loves to cook, he was compelled to try to master barbecue and, in 2005, he and his wife, Tricia, opened B&B BBQ. They set up a vendor stand at Bluff Road and began offering catering services, both of which produced strong sales. That first year, the couple entered their first barbecue contest and, while they didn’t win, they placed fourth for their ribs. The next was different. They won and, as time went on, they continued to win. “Our initial claim to fame was winning 17 contests in a row,” said Brinker. “We got an award for something at every one. Some were top 10s. There were a number of first places and one grand champion.” In 2012 alone B&B has won four grand championships (plus two others by teaming up with Scheer) to compete under the Gateway name, and over 35 individual awards for chicken, ribs, pork and brisket. B&B BBQ is sponsored locally by Gateway BBQ Store and the Bank of Franklin County, as well as Pappy’s Smokehouse in St. Louis, Rebel Smokers, Blues Hog BBQ Sauce and Plowboys rubs. Scheer’s love of barbecue goes back to his college days at Southeast Missouri State University, where he roomed with a student from Memphis. “He introduced me to ‘real’ barbecue,” Scheer said, with a smile. After he graduated and returned home, Scheer began buying barbecue from Brinker, talking to him about his technique and picking his brain for how-to tips so he could perfect his own backyard grilling. “It was a lot of trial and error,” he said. Then two years ago Scheer decided to jump into the world of barbecue competition too. His team, Shake ’N’ Bake BBQ, is a fam• See BBQ 4C

Annie’s Mailbox

Dear Annie: Recently, my husband mentioned that he wanted to get together with some friends for a project. I encouraged him to invite the guys to our home to work on it. I thought it would be a few hours, but it ended up taking well over 12. They arrived early in the morning and stayed until late that night, taking over our living room. I suggested in private to my husband that he should have wrapped things up by late afternoon. The project is for fun. It’s not like they had a deadline for work. It is also designed to continue on a weekly basis for the next six months, so committing to only a portion of the day would not have made much difference. My husband, however, is a people pleaser and didn’t feel he could ask his friends to leave before they wanted to. Would it be wise to discuss a lax but scheduled time of arrival and departure with them in the future, or am I being unfair to suggest that the party should move elsewhere after 10 hours? I want my husband and his friends to feel comfortable in our home, but I also don’t want my house invaded for such a long period of time. East Coast Dear East Coast: It is always wise to discuss time constraints in advance, particularly when overstaying annoys you so much. Some wives would have no objection to a 12-hour marathon. They would occupy themselves elsewhere, and this is one option for you. But please discuss reasonable limits with your husband, allowing yourself to be the “bad guy” in order for him to ask his friends to leave when you’ve had enough. There is no point creating ill will with one’s spouse if it could easily be avoided. Dear Annie: My husband has been put on the lung transplant list, and we are praying and waiting. Please remind your readers about donating their organs. They only need to mark the back of their driver’s licenses. Many people are desperate for a lung, and my husband’s time is getting shorter. Vermont

Dear Vermont: People are also desperately waiting for kidneys, livers, hearts and corneas. We urge all of our readers to consider the gift of being an organ donor. Dear Annie: I’d like to add another take to “Not a Fan of the Big Gulp.” I agree that a Big Gulp is probably a little over the top. However, I always bring my own canned soda to my family’s parties. You see, I am a recovering alcoholic with 24 years of sobriety. Sadly, my family members cannot be trusted not to add liquor to whatever is served. My sponsor suggested that I bring my own drink and keep it with me at all times. One can then be certain that alcoholfree drinks are neither tampered with nor inadvertently mixed with alcoholic drinks. At a bridal shower for my nephew’s fiancee, I brought my own soda. As I was leaving, my sister took me aside and told me that our niece had spiked the lemonade with vodka so people would “loosen up.” I was shocked and angry that this 37-year-old niece would pull such a juvenile and dangerous trick. Aside from my sobriety, she never considered that some guests may have been taking medication that could be lethal in combination with alcohol. Recovering Drunk Dear Recovering: We are certain that etiquette would give you a pass. We also heard from someone whose well water was tainted. But in most instances, it is rude to bring your own beverage to occasions where there is a variety served. And it is never appropriate to bring a Big Gulp.

Humane Society Dog of the Week

Humane Society Cat of the Week

Hi, my name is Jersey. I am a cute and fun loving gal. I have big, beautiful, brown eyes like those of a Jersey cow, and I am gentle like them as well. I am about 8 months old and will weigh about 55 pounds when I am fully grown. I don’t know what breeds I could be from, I just know that I am a really good girl. I have lots of cute ways about me that are sure to charm you if only you will come to visit me. I get really happy when someone comes into my pen, and I will do a little tap dance for them. Wouldn’t you like to experience my cuteness in your home? I am good with other dogs, and I have not been a barker during my stay here. I think I will make a great companion, so how about making me yours? Wags and wiggles, Jersey.

Hello, my name is Ellie. I am a very pretty girl and like to stay dressed up in my blue/ gray suit with all of my many accessories — pearls, white gloves and go-go boots. This way I am ready to go when that right person comes by. You may think that white go-go boots don’t go with pearls, but that is just my way of expressing my many moods. Sometimes I feel like being sophisticated and sometimes I feel like cutting loose and dancing! I will be all packed and dressed up for you when you decide that you need to add a little spice to your home! Purrs and rubs, Ellie.

New Book Tackles Pathological Dependency

Authors have their reasons for wanting to write a book. Dr. John B. Crane’s is far from self-serving. The local psychiatrist too often sees patients with a common set of problems — a self-defeating, all encompassing, often lethal dependence on unhealthy relationships. Because the problem continues to be so prevalent in his practice, Dr. Crane decided to pen “It’s Love Isn’t It, Recognizing and Beginning to Heal From a Lifetime of Abuse.” It’s his care package to those trying to understand, and deal with, what he terms pathological dependency, which is not to be confused with co-dependency, about which much has been written. Comparing the two would be like comparing a common cold to having the bird flu, Dr. Crane said in a recent telephone interview. Pathological dependency is severe and has roots in childhood abuse. More often than not this acute form of dependency is passed on from one generation to the next, leading folks with no self-esteem to seek love and commitment from those who can’t give it because they’re often dealing with issues and/or mental disorders of their own. These include bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, alcohol/drug abuse, schizophrenia and other maladies, all of which are also explained in his book. In July, Dr. Crane closed his private practice in Washington after 37 years and began seeing patients will depart in the afternoon, returning to Jefferson City around 7:15 p.m., Washington around 8:30 p.m., Kirkwood around 9 p.m. and St. Louis around 9:45 p.m. For fare information and reservations, people should call 314-752-3148 or visit

in Union two days a week at the Family Wellness Clinic. He said pathological dependency continues to be “disturbingly frequent,” and that he sometimes sees two or three individuals a day who are “sick, in pain and hurting” as a result of being involved in one “poor relationship after another.” They come to his office expecting a quick fix — a pill to help alleviate their feelings of worthlessness and despair, but soon find out it’s impossible to slap a BandAid on a set of symptoms so deeply rooted in childhood issues. Children need to be loved and cared for; If not, feelings of abandonment may result. These children become adults who fear being alone and thus endure incredibly unhealthy and dangerous relationships rather than taking the risk of being by themselves. If one love interest fails, they slip right back into an-

other because they don’t understand what real love is. When Dr. Crane asks them why they continue to subject themselves to unacceptable behavior they reply, “Because I love him.” These patients really don’t see a way out — they feel worthless and say they have no other place to go — a statement that prompts Dr. Crane to tell them that living under a bridge would be better than subjecting themselves to the kind of life they’re enduring. Recovering from pathological dependency takes time and patience on both the patient and the psychiatrist’s part, Dr. Crane said. The most effective treatment is a combination of talk therapy and medication — not one without the other. For too long psychiatrists have been relegated to just being “pill pushers,” he said. A contributing factor is that there are too few psychiatrists and too many patients needing treatment, and listening takes time, but “in 10 minutes you can make a difference,” Dr. Crane added. While he hopes that his patients benefit from his new book, referring to it between appointments for answers as their therapy continues, he also hopes “It’s Love…Isn’t It,” will open the eyes of those who haven’t yet tackled their problems and will encourage them to seek help and begin living a more happy, healthy life. To purchase a copy of “It’s Love…Isn’t It,” people can call Dr. Crane at 636-5831800.

I guess fall is really here. The trees were so beautiful. Now with the rain, most of the trees are bare. We celebrated Veterans Day. In front of the museum, we put out American flags, and since our museum is across from St. Bridget School, my daughter Jeannie asked Jean, the secretary at the school, if some students would like to help put flags out. We had about 12 sixthgraders come and help. I don’t know if they were glad to help or just glad to get out of school, but they had the flags up in just a

Thanks, sixth-grade class, for your help. My daughter and I are involved in the Tri-County Senior Center, and Sunday, for Veterans Day, we honored the veterans, which was wonderful. It was very sad and brought back memories. My husband, Glenn, was

a World War II veteran. We had flags in front of the senior center that were put out by a Cub Scout troop. The museum will be closed until March. There is going to be some remodeling and a new furnace and air conditioner will be installed. The garage where the Veterans Hall of Fame is will be remodeled. I will try and find items to write about in the mean time. If not, I will be back in March. Be happy.

The team’s first contest was Roots and Blues in Columbia, and while they didn’t bring home any awards that time, they were vindicated this year, when they won reserve grand champion at the event. Other top awards the Shake ’N’ Bake team won this year include first place ribs at the American Royal Open in Kansas City and Grand Champion at the Lake of the Ozarks Blues & BBQ. Both men said there’s an adrenalin rush that comes with competition. That’s part of what keeps them going — that, and the cash prizes. “I love to do it,” said Brinker. “I love to compete. I love to party with the guys. “It’s a hobby that pays.” Scheer added, “It’s a fairly addictive hobby.” And now, after a couple of years of being friendly local competitors, Brinker and Scheer have formed a new team under the name Gateway BBQ Store. “Our barbecue contest presence will be melded into Gateway,” said Brinker. “We will compete together under the Gateway name to make a better run at being Team of the Year,” Brinker explained. “Gateway will cook every weekend, and if one of us wants to cook outside of that under his own name, we can do that too.” The men say their tech-

has more consistent success with chicken and ribs (small meat), and Brinker has more success with pork shoulder and brisket (large meat). Charitable Hobby One of the most heartwarming aspects of these barbecue competitions is that many times the leftover food is donated to local food pantries, the elderly living in local nursing homes or other people in need. Once it was taken to a funeral home for the family and friends of someone who had recently passed away, said Brinker, and another time it was given to tornado victims. Gateway BBQ Store also believes in giving back and is currently collecting donations for Operation BBQ Relief, a nonprofit organization that provides meals to people affected by natural disasters, like Hurricane Sandy. “Operation BBQ Relief uses its expertise in cooking and catering barbecue meals and the ability to quickly mobilize teams into any area where nature disrupts and tears apart the lives of Americans to restore

Items being collected include paper towels, aluminum foil, paper plates, plastic wear, salt/pepper, latex gloves, Clorox wipes, hand soap, kitchen rags and No. 10 cans of beans or vegetables. Anyone who makes a donation will receive a 10 percent discount off a purchase at Gateway, Scheer noted.

‘Proof’ on ECC Stage Thursday “Proof,” a play written by David Auburn, will open this Thursday and run through Sunday afternoon at the John Edison Anglin Performing Arts Center at East Central College. Show times are 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 15-17, with the 2 p.m. matinee Sunday, Nov. 18. Synopsis Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert — a respected mathematician. Following his death, she must deal with her emotions, the ar-

rival of her estranged sister, Claire, and the attentions a student previously mentored by her father, Hal, who has hopes to find value in the work Robert left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and a discovery among 103 mysterious notebooks Robert kept, draw Catherine to a place where she’s left wondering, how much her father’s genius — or madness — she has inherited. The cast features John Anglin as Robert, Maria Struttman as Catherine, Kaitlyn Smith as Claire

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.

Fading of Veterans, History


e’ve had another Veterans Day and the observances of gratitude to the men and women who served this country in the military were heartwarming. Most veterans don’t say much but they are grateful for the recognition given to them. Veterans Day brings back memories to those who served and unfortunately every year we have fewer World War II veterans, who participated in the Big War. They are passing on and with them goes a great deal of history. Individual stories of training and fighting battles, heroic actions they witnessed, die with them because they never talked much about what happened. The same is true of the veterans of other wars in Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf fighting, Iraq and Afghanistan, and a few other conflicts. They don’t talk much about their experiences. One reason is that it is difficult to explain combat and what goes on, and veterans would like to forget about some of the things that happened. It is never easy to explain the killing that occurs. It’s difficult to explain the deaths of fellow troops. Combat veterans live with the question, “Why did I make it and he or they didn’t?” There is no answer. The recognition shown to veterans today is inspiring. We must never allow again what happened to veterans of the Vietnam fighting. They were called and they served in an unpopular war. The Vietnam veterans were not treated with respect. That has changed. They now are rec-


ognized in a manner befitting all veterans. With the Korean veterans, they mostly were ignored. But they also are respected for their service. The men and women serving now are treated with admiration and respect. They certainly deserve it. The National Guard and reservists from all the other branches have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, some for more than one tour, and that kind of situation is very difficult. One day they are engaged in their careers in civilian life and the next day they are in their military uniforms, serving in foreign countries. That kind of military obligation is hard on family life. The patriotic atmosphere in America today exists even though the wars we are fighting are questioned as to their value and interest to this country by many citizens. The draft was the main reason the Vietnam War was so unpopular. The Veterans Day programs at schools are so important because they are educational and could be called an American history session. Speakers relate their experiences in the military and that of others. The messages given usually are inspiring, patriotic and students get a look at veterans who served. There are veterans available to schools at other times to speak to classes to relate their experiences and the history of that era. Any event that honors military veterans is appreciated by the men and women who have served or are serving their country.

Editor’s Notebook

By Bill Miller Sr.

Post Election Silence


sually there is much discussion after a presidential election. We don’t know about you, but we heard almost nothing the days after the election about the outcome. The silence was welcomed. Perhaps it was that people were worn out about the long campaign and the endless ads on television with candidates knocking their opponents. Maybe it was because people expected the outcome to be what it was. Was the silence due to the fact that the presidential election was close and there is almost no change in Washington, D.C., as to the party lineups in the House and Senate, and in the occupant in the White House? For more than a year, there was campaigning. There were the state primaries. Millions of

dollars were spent, then a billion or two, by candidates who were campaigning. And what did we end up with? What we had, with the exception of a few new faces. How can any president govern when so much time is consumed in campaigning? The country still is divided. The talk in Washington, D.C., is that “I am willing to compromise” by our elected leaders. We will believe that when we see it! he people would like to see a different attitude in Congress and in the White House. Is the divide so great that it just can’t happen? For compromise there must be a movement to the middle on major issues. Dissatisfaction with government is the breeding ground for extremism. The shifts to the far right and


far left have been building for years. Legislation and policies also have caused problems for both major parties — more for the Republicans than for the Democrats. President Barack Obama received 50.5 percent of the popular vote. That’s hardly a mandate from the voters. t will be interesting to see how the president responds to that narrow of a victory. Surely he must realize that nearly half of the people who voted didn’t want four more years of Obamaism. Many of our presidents who were elected to a second term have had rough sledding. This president is facing major problems at home and abroad. The economy, unemployment, immigration, taxes, the debt, planned cuts

Scandal Widens

very day brings new revelations in the sex scandal involving Gen. David Petraeus, the CIA director who resigned last week. The director admitted an extramarital affair with a woman who was his biographer and who sent threatening emails to another woman who was close to Petraeus. Now there is speculation that the FBI withheld information about the general because of the presidential election. The investigation now has extended to the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, John Allen, and involves thousands of alleged inappropriate communications with the second woman involved in the scandal, the AP reported. The women involved are Paula Broadwell, who wrote a book about Petraeus while having an extramarital affair with him, and Jill Kelley, a Petraeus family friend who was threatened by Broadwell who felt Kelley was getting too close to the general. The latest discovery is that Gen. Allen was sending emails to Kelley. This is an unraveling story that seems to top what we read in fiction books or see in the movies. The White House is holding up Gen. Allen’s appointment to become the next commander of

the U.S. European Command and the commander of NATO forces in Europe. A Pentagon official said 20,000 to 30,000 pages of emails and other documents from Gen. Allen’s communications with Kelley are under review. Gen. Allen has denied any wrongdoing. If Gen. Allen was having an affair with Kelley he could face charges of adultery, which is a crime under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Congress is trying to conduct an investigation and wants testimony from the key people involved in this scandal. Whether this scandal, if revealed prior to the election, would have made any difference in the outcome is a matter that is sure to be a topic that will be around for a while. We don’t think it would have made any difference. To have top military figures, one who went on to head the CIA, be involved in a scandal such as this is disturbing to Americans who put their trust in these men. They are supposed to be excellent examples of American leadership. Their records have been tarnished forever. From what has been revealed so far, they have violated the public’s trust. We can’t help but wonder “what’s next” in the investigation.

Fill Those Bags

oughly 46.2 million Americans live at or below the povR erty level.

That’s a staggering number of people. In fact it’s the highest number in more than a half century when records were kept. Some of those people who are trying to make ends meet live in our community. Probably more than you may be aware of according to officials at local food pantries. There is a way you can give these folks a hand and help an organization that is preparing our country’s future leaders at the same time. This Saturday marks the 27th annual Scouting for Food Drive in the greater St. Louis region. It is one of the largest food drives in the country. This one-day drive raises between 20 to 30 percent of area food pantries’ yearly supply and can feed the hungry in our community for up to three months.

More than 40,000 Scouts, parents and Scouters in the Greater St. Louis Area Council make it happen. Scouts placed plastic bags on doorknobs on homes throughout the area last Saturday. They will return this Saturday to collect them. You can help the Scouts, whose members take an oath to “help other people at all times,” by putting a few cans of food in the bag and putting them in front of your home. The Scouts will take care of the rest by getting the food to area food pantries. Scouting for food serves a critical need in our community right before the Thanksgiving holiday season when food banks are in the greatest need. It also exposes Scouts to community service and the invaluable lesson of helping others. Start the holiday season off right, fill those bags this Saturday.

The Petraeus Downfall Michael Gerson

WASHINGTON — The Petraeus affair — like some Ethics 101 thought experiment — is an exceptionally difficult test case in determining the proper relationship between personal ethics and public trust. When should you forgive an indispensable leader a fatal flaw? Retired Gen. David Petraeus has made a career of indispensability. He defined and implemented the counterinsurgency doctrines that brought about a decent outcome in Iraq — avoiding a setback at the heart of American interests that would have been more demoralizing than Vietnam. He left

Pat Buchanan

his imprint on a generation of officers who have emulated his strategic flexibility and intellectual rigor. There is a reason Petraeus generally received good press, even from those skeptical of American military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. During briefings and discussions, he is supremely informed and often breathtakingly candid — an attribute that involves risks but establishes credibility. He possesses a comprehensive knowledge of leaders and events in the Middle East and Central Asia. His career had not only been successful; it

demonstrated that America is capable of complex international responsibilities. Petraeus is a generator of national confidence. Why? So why, exactly, should marital infidelity be disqualifying? This is not an easy or simple determination in any field of public leadership and responsibility. With human beings, it is necessary to leave room for complication. A person who cheats on his or her spouse can show courage on the battlefield or loyalty to their country. Faith • Continued on Page 9C

Petraeus and Benghazi: A Time for Truth

The stunning resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus, days before he was to testify on the CIA role in the Benghazi massacre, raises many more questions than his resignation letter answers. “I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair,” wrote Petraeus. “Such behavior is unacceptable ... as the leader of an organization such as ours.” The problem: Petraeus’ “unacceptable behavior,” adultery with a married mother of two, Paula Broadwell, that exposed the famous general to blackmail, began soon after he became director in 2011. Was his security detail at the CIA and were his closest associates oblivious to the fact that the director was a ripe target for blackmail, since any revelation of the affair could destroy his career? People at the CIA had to know they had a security risk at the top of their agency. Did no one at the CIA do anything? By early summer, however,

Jill Kelley, 37, a close friend of the general from his days as head of CentCom at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., had received half a dozen anonymous, jealous, threatening emails. “Back off.” ‘’Stay away from my guy!” they said. Kelley went to an FBI friend who ferreted out Broadwell as the sender and Petraeus as the guy she wanted Kelley to stay away from. Yet, learning that Broadwell was the source of the emails, that Petraeus was having an affair with her, and that the CIA director was thus a target for blackmail and a security risk should have taken three days for the FBI, not three months. And when Broadwell was identified as the source of the threats, did the Tampa FBI office decide on its own to rummage through her other emails? And when Petraeus’ secret email address popped up, did the local FBI decide to rummage through his emails, as well?

Was the CIA aware that Petraeus’ private emails were being read by the FBI? Surely, as soon as Petraeus’ affair became known, FBI Director Robert Mueller would have been told and would have alerted Attorney General Eric Holder, who would have alerted the president. For a matter of such gravity, this is normal procedure. Yet, The New York Times says the FBI and the Justice Department kept the White House in the dark. Is that believable? Could it be that Obama and the National Security Council were kept ignorant of a grave security risk and a potentially explosive scandal that the Tampa FBI field office knew all about? By late October, with the FBI, Justice and the White House all in “hear-no-evil” mode, an FBI “whistle-blower” from Florida contacted the Republican leadership in the House and told them of the dy• Continued on Page 9C

Lesson Was Not to Drink, Drive To The Editor: I recently read a letter from Matthew Elbert in regards to the Massmann/Mooney accident that occurred May 5, 2002, in which Patricia Mooney was killed. Mr. Elbert was upset because The Missourian only told the “negative” side of that story and that for the last 10 years before his passing, Mr. Massmann actually helped people that had problems with alcohol. Well, for the last 10 years that he was doing that, Patricia Mooney missed out on the births of two additional grandchildren. She didn’t get to see her son graduate from high school or to be there on his wedding day. She didn’t get to see her daughter grow into a wonderful mother with two kids of her own or get to play with her son’s son. She will not have the opportunity to watch any of them grow up to be the people that they are destined to be. She was killed, and missed out on the last 10 years altogether. I know that there are two sides to every

story, but Pat didn’t get to finish her story. Her life story was cut short by a drunk driver. She was taken from her two children, her mom and dad, brother, aunts, uncles, nephews and friends, while Mr. Massmann was able to finish his. I don’t think the story you printed was a negative story. It is a true story about an accident and that is the negative story. It’s negative because Mr. Massmann chose to drink and drive, Patricia Mooney was killed and left her family to grieve her death. Although Mr. Massmann may have helped others with their alcohol problems, (and that is to be commended), it doesn’t erase the impact the accident had on her family and friends, for them it was never in the past. They grieve their loss every day and have for the last 10 years. The lesson that Mr. Massmann has taught us all is not to drink and drive. A Friend of the Mooney Family

What’s the Matter With This County? To The Editor: How crazy is Franklin County? Pretty darn crazy. Todd Akin, the guy who thinks women have magic lady parts that secrete a chemical toxin that kills off rape sperm whenever there has been a, ahem, “legitimate rape,” drew nearly 46 percent of the county vote. Akin would have handily bested Sen. Claire McCaskill’s 47 percent if not for one Jonathan Dine, the antigovernment Libertarian candidate who got almost 7 percent of the vote.

So who is Jonathan Dine? Well, let’s start with the giant marijuana leaf he likes to draw on his chest with a Sharpie. His most recent felony conviction is for growing pot in his apartment. He was convicted of identity theft in 2005, and has about a dozen traffic violations, mostly DWI convictions in 2011. Seven percent of Franklin Countians thought this guy would make a better U.S. senator than McCaskill. Classy, eh? I don’t know which is saddest about our county, the fact that 46 percent of voters vot-

ed for an anti-science screwball like Akin over a relatively harmless stoner like Dine (Dine is somehow the radical here), or the fact that nearly 53 percent voted against McCaskill, the only sane one of the bunch. Seriously, what’s the matter with Franklin County? People here are nuts. Thank goodness the rest of the state came to its senses and voted to re-elect McCaskill by a margin of 15 points.

Coaches Provided Life Lessons To The Editor: As a former Washington High School football player, it was interesting to read Gene Biermann’s perspective on the honoring of Jim Scanlan. He appropriately spoke of Coaches Scanlan, Carter and Eickmeyer as a unit. These coaches sent a consistent message to players. They always appeared to be on the same page, with Coach Scanlan clearly the leader. By their example they taught us to work together, and to work hard. You might say they demanded we work together, and work hard.

We recognize many others contributed to what Mr. Biermann referred to as the “Golden Age.” They were spouses and boosters, teachers and students, and a community of fans.

vices. The amount of money spent and contributed locally for the 2002 Washington Town and Country Fair totaled just under $1 million, according to Chairman Orville Brinker Jr. More than 46,000 volunteer hours from 238 auxiliary members at St. John’s Mercy Hospital in Washington earned the auxiliary top honors as “Auxiliary of the Year” from the Missouri Association of Hospital Auxiliaries. Missouri’s legislative agenda may look different under Republican leadership in the coming year and that might mean money for school districts, like Washington, whose state funding is capped. For the first time since 1987, the St. Clair Bulldogs have won a district football championship. Dustin Dixon entered Saturday’s state cross country meet at Oak Hills Golf Center in Jefferson City as the area’s best long-distance runner. He left as one of the best Class 3 has to offer.

A Thanksgiving Day goal of having the downtown parking lot at Main and Elm streets ready for use is still attainable, according to Jim Briggs, city administrator.

Circuit Judge Lawrence Davis may yet end up sitting as a federal judge, if only for a short period of time. Sen. John Danforth has asked the Bush administration to appoint Davis as a federal district court judge by using a rarely used constitutional process that would not require Senate confirmation. Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney Dave Tobben is hopeful that the next Missouri Legislature will act quickly to “correct” the DWI law, which requires prosecutors to issue misdemeanor charges in DWI cases that in the past would have been felonies.

Art Program Helps Adults at Rainbow Center To The Editor: I wanted to praise the principal, teachers and students at Pacific High School. I am the director at Rainbow Activity Center, a day program for adults with developmental disabilities. Mr. Dempsey, the art teacher, started a program with one of his art classes to give our individuals the opportunity to experience different art medias. This has been a great experience for all of our individuals as well as the staff. Not only has it been a great learning experience, but also it has given them a chance to build on friendships that have developed by visiting the school. The creativity and compassion of each of the students in the class has made each visit a memorable event in the lives of each person that has gone. With the support and guidance by the great faculty at Pacific High, I am positive these students will become great teachers. We again thank them for letting us be a part of this and hope to have a long and lasting friendship with everyone at the school. Joyce Watts Director Rainbow Activity

Gerson lessness in one area does not extend to every area. Most people have hidden flaws and failures of various kinds, which may or may not have broader relevance to their work. So we are forced to make professional judgments. It matters little if our surgeon is prideful or our airline pilot is a miser. It matters greatly if either abuses alcohol. A priest can’t be a gossip. A CFO can’t be forgiven just a little embezzlement. We also make practical distinctions on sexual issues such as adultery. All infidelity involves personal betrayal. Innocent people — spouses and children — suffer unfairly. But some adultery also involves exploitation, compulsiveness and the abuse of power — failures we rightly judge more harshly. Expectations of personal behavior in the national security professions have generally been higher than other fields, particularly for officers and leaders. In the military, sexual intrigue can undermine morale and discipline. Adultery can land you in prison for up to a year — though the rule is seldom enforced in the absence of other crimes such as lying to superiors or disobeying orders. In the intelligence world, sex has long been used as bait and blackmail — the “honey trap” — though I’d imagine that plain old infidelity at the CIA is not unknown or uniformly punished. By all accounts, Petraeus’ personal failure did not involve the abuse of power, criminal acts or security breaches. But his case also demonstrates how messy infidelity can quickly become — messy enough to involve harassing emails and to attract the attention of the FBI. People at their most ardent are also at their least rational. And this is most damaging in fields, such as intelligence,

other changes. A replacement will be needed for Hillary Clinton at the State Department. She will have four years to prepare for her run for president. Other cabinets posts will have to be filled.

where the essence of leadership is judgment. Petraeus might have fought for his job. America’s 42nd president, after all, once did the same. Instead, Petraeus admitted to showing “extremely poor judgment.” And it is hard to argue with him. “Such behavior,” he told the employees of CIA, “is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.” After a career dedicated to high standards, Petraeus chose to apply those standards to himself. The rest of us, unfortunately, are left without the services of an exceptional public servant. We are also left to ponder the conflicted nature of many successful leaders. There seems to be some connection between self-confidence, charisma and personal recklessness. For some, it is the expression of “hubris” — the thrill of living by a different set of rules than normal mortals. For Petraeus, it seems more like “hamartia” — the fatal flaw or error of an honorable man, resulting in disproportionate misfortune. This is the essence of tragedy — in this case, a tragedy for himself, his family and his country. Yet an exceptional life cannot be reduced to its lowest moment. Petraeus’ judgment was poor. His career was needlessly shortened. But nothing that Petraeus has contributed to his nation has been undone.

Wants Parties To Unite on Reforms To The Editor: After alienating blacks, Hispanics, women and whites who were disgusted by voter suppression this past election cycle, maybe a way for the Republican Party to start to make amends would be for them to work with Democrats on immigration reform and also to support statehood for Puerto Rico. It might help as well to disavow the coarse rhetoric of de facto party leader, Rush Limbaugh. By the way, Mitt Romney got two million less votes than John McCain. That tells you something. Charles G.

namite the administration was sitting on. Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s office called Mueller, and the game was up. But the truth was withheld until after Nov. 6. On Thursday, closed Senate hearings are being held into unanswered questions about the terrorist attack in which Amb. Chris Stevens, two former Navy SEALs and a U.S. diplomat were killed. Questions There are four basic questions. Why were repeated warnings from Benghazi about terrorist activity in the area ignored and more security not provided, despite urgent pleas from Stevens and others at the consulate? Why was the U.S. military unable to come to the rescue of our people begging for help, when the battle in Benghazi lasted on and off for seven hours? Who, if anyone, gave an order for forces to “stand down” and not go to the rescue of the consulate compound or the safe house? A week before Petraeus’ resignation, the CIA issued a flat denial that any order to stand down ever came from anyone in the agency. Fourth, when the CIA knew it was a terrorist attack, why did Jay Carney on Sept. 13, David Petraeus to Congress on Sept. 14, UN Amb. Susan Rice on Sept 16 on five TV shows, and Obama before the UN two weeks after 9/11 all keep pushing what the CIA knew was a false and phony story: That it had all come out of a spontaneous protest of an anti-Islamic video made by some clown in California? There was no protest. Was the video-protest line a cover story to conceal a horrible lapse of security before the attack and a failure to respond during the attack — resulting in the slaughter? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has sent word she will not be testifying. And she will soon be stepping down. Petraeus is a no-show this week. He is gone. Holder is moving on, and so, too, is Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. President Nixon’s Attorneys General John Mitchell and Richard Kleindienst and his top aides Bob Haldeman and John Ehrlichman were all subpoenaed by the Watergate Committee and made to testify under oath about a bungled bugging at the DNC. The Benghazi massacre is a far graver matter, and the country deserves answers. The country deserves the truth.

The Missourian. The Reach!

Missouri Voters Stick With Status Quo By David Lieb, Associated Press Writer Senate candidate Sarah Steelman finished third after campaigning with a slogan of “the status quo has got to go” in Missouri’s Republican primary earlier this year. Perhaps that was a sign of things to come. Missouri voters came to a pretty resounding conclusion in last Tuesday’s general election. It might best be described as “gung ho for the status quo.” With the notable of exception of Missouri’s preference for Republican challenger Mitt Romney over Democratic President Barack Obama, voters rejected change in virtually every significant race and ballot proposal. The list is long: — Democratic U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill defeated Republican challenger Todd Akin. — Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon defeated Republican challenger Dave Spence. — Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder defeated Democratic challenger Susan Montee. — Democratic Attorney General Chris Koster defeated Republican challenger Ed Martin. — Democratic Treasurer Clint Zweifel defeated Republican challenger Cole McNary. — Every incumbent member of Congress, be they Republicans or Democrats, won re-election. — Republicans maintained their large majorities in the state House and Senate, with a net change of only a few seats. — Every judge up for re-election was retained, including St. Louis County Associate Circuit Judge Dale Hood, who a judicial evaluation panel had recommended be ousted from office. — A proposition to raise Missouri’s tobacco taxes was defeated, keeping the state’s 17-cent-a-pack cigarette tax the lowest in the nation. — A proposition to change the screening panels for vacancies on appellate courts was defeated, keeping Missouri’s current judicial selection process in place. On election night, the winning candidates interpreted their victories as a sign that voters were pleased with their leadership. The third defeat of the tobacco tax hike in a decade confirmed they are skeptical of tax increases. And opponents of the judicial ballot measure said its defeat was a strong indication that residents like the way their courts operate. Not for Change “For the most part, Missourians aren’t looking to change things in any dramatic fashion,” said Peverill Squire, a political science professor at the University of

Missouri-Columbia. “I’m not sure there’s any great appetite for larger changes in terms of economic policies or even social policies.” The same was not the case elsewhere. Voters in Maine and Maryland became the first to approve same-sex marriage via a ballot proposal. Voters in Colorado and Washington legalized recreational use of marijuana. And California voters approved a general sales tax hike and an income tax increase for those making more than $250,000 annually to help balance the state budget. The fondness for sameness in Missouri comes despite an aggressive effort by some challengers to make the case for change. Spence built his gubernatorial campaign around an assertion that Missouri’s economy is in poor shape. Akin’s senatorial campaign focused on his desire to undo Obama’s 2010 health care law and return to an era of smaller government. It was, in essence, a plea to reject the new status quo in favor of a prior one. Indeed, many people who voted for challengers expressed frustration with the economy and a desire for change when interviewed by Associated Press reporters at voting sites. A separate exit poll of 2,103 Missouri voters, conducted for the AP at 35 randomly sampled precincts by Edison Research, found that about four out of five voters rated the economy as either “poor” or “not so good.” And most voters picked the economy as the most important issue facing the country instead of health care, the federal budget deficit or foreign policy. Yet voters’ assessment of the economy apparently did not translate into a desire to oust incumbents other than Obama. George Connor, the head of the political science department at Missouri State University, said voters might not have meant to back the status quo, but that was just the result when they considered races on a case-by-case basis. Many factors were involved in individual campaigns, most notably in the U.S. Senate race, where the exit poll showed that many voters paid attention to Akin’s much-criticized remark about women having a biological defense against pregnancy in cases of “legitimate rape.” “I think people were consciously choosing Claire McCaskill over Todd Akin as an individual choice as opposed to maintaining the status quo. And I think that is true for Nixon and Spence as well,” Connor said. “There is a level of individual choice all the way up and down the ballot.”

Is Demography Destiny? By Thomas Sowell Some media pundits see in the growing proportion of non-white groups in the population a growing opposition to the Republican Party that will sooner or later make it virtually impossible for Republicans to win presidential elections or even to control either house of Congress. But is demography destiny? Conventional wisdom in the Republican establishment is that what the GOP needs to do, in order to win black votes or Hispanic votes, is to craft policies specifically targeting these groups. In other words, Republicans need to become more like Democrats. Whether in a racial context or in other contexts, the supposed need for Republicans to become more like Democrats has long been a recurring theme of the moderate Republican establishment, going back more than half a century. Yet the most successful Republican presidential candidate during that long period was a man who went completely counter to that conventional wisdom — namely, Ronald Reagan, who won back to back landslide election victories. Meanwhile, moderate Republican presidential candidate after moderate Republican presidential candidate has gone down to defeat, even against Democratic presidential candidates who were unpopular (Harry Truman), previously unknown (Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton) or who had a terrible economic track record (Barack Obama). None of this seems to have caused any second thoughts in the Republican establishment. So long as

that remains the case, demography may indeed be destiny — and that destiny could be Democratic administrations as far out as the eye can see. If non-white voters can only be gotten by pandering to them with goodies earmarked for them, then Republicans are doomed, even if they choose to go that route. Why should anyone who wants racially earmarked goodies vote for Republicans, when the Democrats already have a track record of delivering such goodies? An alternative way to make inroads into the overwhelming majority of minority votes for Democrats would be for the Republicans to articulate a coherent case for their principles and the benefits that those principles offer to all Americans. But the Republicans’ greatest failure has been precisely their chronic failure to spell out their principles — and the track record of those principles — to either white or non-white voters. Very few people know, for example, that the gap between black and white incomes narrowed during the Reagan administration and widened during the Obama administration. This was not because of Republican policies designed specifically for blacks, but because free market policies create an economy in which all people can improve their economic situation. Conversely, few policies have had such a devastating effect on the job opportunities of minority youths as minimum wage laws, which are usually pushed

by Democrats and opposed by Republicans. But these facts do not “speak for themselves.” Somebody has to cite the facts and take the trouble to show why unemployment among minority youths skyrocketed when minimum wage increases priced them out of jobs. The loss of income from an entry-level job is only part of the loss sustained by minority young people. Work experience at even an entry-level job is a valuable asset, as a stepping stone to progressively higher level jobs. Moreover, nobody gains from having a huge number of idle youths hanging out on the streets, least of all minority communities. Labor unions push minimum wage laws to insulate their members from the competition of younger workers, and Democratic politicians are heavily dependent on union support. For the same reason, Democrats have to go along with teachers’ unions that treat schools as places to guarantee their members jobs, rather than to provide the quality education so much needed to rise out of poverty. What Democrats cannot say under these conditions is what Republicans are free to say — even if Republicans have seldom taken advantage of that freedom to make inroads into minority voting blocs. Inroads are all they need. If the black vote for Democrats falls to 70 percent, the Democrats are in deep trouble. But if Republicans continue to be inarticulate, then it is they who are in big trouble. More important, so is the country.

Missourian Sports Editor

It was a task about as big as trying to fill in the Grand Canyon. Facing the Webb City Cardinals Saturday in Jasper County proved to be too much for the Sullivan Eagles in a 35-6 MSHSAA Class 4 quarterfinal loss. “They gave what they had,” Sullivan Head Coach Pat Burke said. “We had a lot of two-way players. They left it out on the field. What else would you expect. They are wonderful kids. They never back down and they never let down.” Webb City Head Coach John Roderique had good things to say about the Eagles. “Sullivan’s coaches and kids do a great job with the system they run. We were fortunate that we had two big plays with a blocked field goal and a blocked punt. We scored 14 points in the second quarter and had one snap on offense,” Roderique said. “They do a very good job with their personnel. They get a lot out of their kids in controlling games and scoring points.” Roderique also complimented Sullivan’s fans and coaching staff. “They traveled well. I was impressed with their crowd. It was a great atmosphere,” Roderique said. “Coach Burke is a good guy. He sent me a text message Sunday congratulating me on the win and had nice things to say about our program.” The Cardinals (13-0) advance to face St. Mary’s (11-2) this Saturday in St. Louis. “We don’t know much about St. Mary’s. Going on the road in the state semi-

We trailed 24-7 at halftime and came back to win, 28-24,” Roderique said. “In the playoffs, you just have to find ways to move on. It’s all about matchups.” Sullivan ended one of the most successful seasons in program history at 12-1, winning a district championship in the new eight-team district format. In 2008, the Eagles reached the state semifinals, losing to Cardinal Ritter. “These guys have talked about having the opportunity to play for a state championship since the time they were sophomores,” Burke said. “We knew at some point or time it would have to go through this program. To be playing in this environment in November is a great testament to the work these kids have done over the last three years.” Webb City is the type of team which can beat you with reputation alone.

McCluer North Earns Top Seed for Turkey Tournament By Bill Battle

Missourian Sports Editor

Last year, the McCluer North Stars won all but one game during a Class 5 state championship season. This year, the Stars will be looking to avenge that one loss, which came to Borgia in the championship game of the St. Francis Borgia Pepsi Cola Thanksgiving Tournament.

McCluer North is the top seed for this year’s 60th annual event, which starts next Wednesday, Nov. 21. The Stars lead an eightteam field, which is an increase of two schools from last year’s tournament. Borgia, the defending champion, received the second seed. Seeded third is tournament newcomer St. Louis

Christian while another newcomer, Cardinal Ritter, is the fourth seed. Leading the second half of the field is Washington at fifth, followed by Pacific at sixth, Carnahan at seventh and St. Clair at eighth. Games start Wednesday, Nov. 21, with two contests scheduled.

It’s officially over. And not a moment too soon. The area’s fall sports season came to a close Saturday afternoon in Jasper County as the Webb City Cardinals knocked out the Sullivan Eagles, 35-6. The second foray by an area high school into that cathedral of Missouri high school football was much more successful than Union’s 42-7 defeat there two years ago. I believe the better team won the game, but this year’s Webb City squad didn’t seem to be as overpowering as past teams. The Cardinals are very smart in their playing style. Early in the game, Webb City looked for cracks in the Sullivan defensive line by probing with middle rushing plays. But Webb City used that to set up the outside game and the passing game and was able to move the ball successfully on every drive. Special teams also played a huge role for Webb City, but that will be addressed a little later. Huge crowds haven’t awed the Eagles this season as Sullivan has been very boisterous in supporting its team this season. By the volume of new district championship T-shirts in the stands, you would think that shirt makers would be the most prosperous folks around. Contrary to popular belief, they didn’t shut down the town, though. There was commerce in Sullivan on the way to the game. The Eagles faced some tough choices early in the game. On Sullivan’s first drive, it faced fourth and inches inside its own territory. It was a no-win situation for Pat Burke and his team. If you go for it and fail against a smart Webb City defense expecting an inside run, you give the Cardinals a short field to work with. And Webb City is much too good to give breaks. Instead, the Eagles decided to punt, but it was into a stiff wind and Webb City had another edge in the fact that the ball wasn’t going to fly too far. Webb City took over and was able to control the ball and the clock as it pushed down for a touchdown. Along the way, the Cardinals converted on their own fourth down play. The touchdown was a four-yard run by quarterback John Roderique with 4:03 left in the first quarter. The play was typical of the drive. Roderique was able to bounce outside and score as everyone expected a running play up the middle and Roderique was tossing the ball to the official by the time anyone realized he was

Webb City-Sullivan Football

4 state championship games, the Cardinals give opposing teams the reason to fear baby blue. Playing methodical, technically sound football, the Cardinals rely on fundamentals, ball control and mistake-free football to win games. And that’s how Webb City vanquished the Eagles on Saturday. Webb City scored on nearly every possession while building up a 35-point advantage. “It comes down to you have to stop them at some point in time and we didn’t do that,” Burke said. “That, and the special teams breakdowns, really hurt us.” The Cardinals moved the ball mainly on the ground, but mixed in passes when necessary. One of those resulted in a touchdown as well. Key Plays But where Webb City really shined was on special teams. Senior Nate Brown broke through the Sullivan screen to block a field goal attempt and a punt on back-to-back drives in the second quarter. The field goal block was huge. It came as Sullivan attempted a 40-yard field goal with the wind to try to cut the Webb City advantage to 14-3. But Brown stopped sophomore Jake Lochner’s kick and senior Phoenix Johnson grabbed the ball, running for a 67-yard touchdown before Sullivan could react. That extended the lead to 21-0 with 5:44 left in the half. “I thought at halftime we had an opportunity to be a little bit of a different game,” Burke said. “It started to slide away from us a little bit on special teams. We had some breakdowns which led to major point swings.” On the next series, the Eagles were forced to punt. Brown again broke through the protective screen to stop Adam Weiland’s kick. The Cardinals took over at the Sullivan 22 and senior Cooper Smith scored on the next play to make it 28-0 with 1:32 left in the half. And Webb City nearly made it three big special teams plays in a row. The Cardinals, kicking into the wind, tried for an onside kick. Webb City recovered the ball, but a penalty for fair catch interference gave Sullivan another chance. Another potentially big play came on the first drive of the game. Sullivan faced fourth and inches in their own territory and decided to punt into the wind instead. “Being on the 29-yard line, I most definitely would punt,” Burke said. “Our defense had been solid all season. I wouldn’t

have changed a thing.” Webb City took over at its own 42 and marched in for the game’s first score. That drive included a fourth down conversion for the Cardinals and another first down pickup on a third and long play. “The wind had the potential to be a big factor. We forced them to punt early in the game against the wind, which gave us good field position,” Roderique said. “We got a couple of touchdowns with the wind in the first quarter. The second one came on a nice pass and catch. They had it defended pretty well. We just made a big play.” Sullivan Highlights While Sullivan lost the game and didn’t score until the fourth quarter after the outcome already was decided, the Eagles did have some big plays. The one touchdown came on a 31-yard run by junior Justin Biermann. He was able to cut to the right side of the field and avoid tacklers to reach the end zone. “It was nice to end the game like that,” Burke said. “I thought we had some missed opportunities. They have a defense that is incredibly fast. I noticed coming into the game that this is one of the fastest defenses we’ve played in a long time. They close so quickly and they tackle so well. If you don’t take the opportunities when you have them, it’s not going to be good. We missed them and they capitalized when they had the chance.” Lochner’s kick appeared to be headed for a successful extra point, but the ball was pushed wide by the wind. Sullivan was able to move the ball at times and showed imagination in their offensive play selection. While Sullivan had kept the ball mainly on the ground in the past, Burke mixed in a number of wildcat plays with the direct snap going to Biermann. Trailing most of the game, senior quarterback Adam Tiefenbrunn was pressed into more passing situations, completing four of 12 attempts for 66 yards. Burke hopes the experience of playing Webb City is something the Eagles can build upon in the future. “If you look around here, this had to start somewhere,” Burke said. “The opportunity to start something like this would be great. This group of seniors led the way with how hard they worked on and off the field.” Stats Sullivan had 178 total yards. Biermann led the Sullivan ground game with 16 carries for 84 yards. Senior Clayton Mayer ran eight times for 18 yards and

caught one pass for two yards. Weiland caught two passes for 52 yards. Seth Mesey had one catch for 12 yards. Junior Caden Weigl ran three times for nine yards. Defensively, seniors Mesey and Dalton Turner had eight tackles and four assists. Mayer checked in with five tackles and three assists. Weiland posted four tackles and three assists. Weigl had three tackles and five assists. Biermann closed with three tackles. Senior Kishan Patel recovered a fumble. For the Cardinals, senior quarterback John Roderique, the head coach’s son, completed all three of his pass attempts for 78 yards and one touchdown. Senior Jalen Vaden caught two of those passes for 45 yards, including a 34-yard gain and a key first down pickup on the opening Webb City drive. Senior Kohl Slaughter caught the other pass, a 33yard touchdown to make it 14-0 in the first quarter. Webb City takes pride in a solid running game and the Cardinals picked up 239 yards on the ground with six players carrying 36 times. Webb City’s offensive line continued to punch open holes for the runners, allowing the Cardinals to run the clock while picking up positive yardage throughout the game. Senior Cooper Smith led the way with 81 yards on eight carries. That included a 22-yard touchdown. Johnson scored once on the ground while lugging the ball 10 times for 39 yards. Roderique had Webb City’s longest run, 26 yards, while getting three carries for 38 yards. Junior Trey Parra picked up 36 yards on five carries, including a 19-yard gain. Junior Kyle Baldasarre ran five times for 29 yards. Junior Mason Williams, the backup quarterback, checked in with five carries for 16 yards. Senior kicker Alex Easley was perfect on the day, kicking five extra points. Senior Logan Williams had one tackle and 10 assists for 11

• Continued from Page 1D stops. Senior Dalton Humphery had five tackles and six assists. Brown closed with three tackles and three assists. Senior Jose Speer had two tackles and three assists. “We didn’t do anything spectacular,” Roderique said. “We made some big plays that helped us build a lead in the first half.” Game Summary Sullivan received the opening kick and had to punt when faced with fourth and short. That led to Roderique’s easy four-yard run to the left side after the Cardinals drove down the field. The score came with 4:03 left in the first quarter. Easley converted the extra point to make it 7-0. After forcing the Eagles to punt again, Roderique found Slaughter for a 33-yard touchdown pass with 24 seconds left on the clock. In the second quarter, the Cardinals stopped Sullivan’s best drive to that point and blocked the field goal attempt with Johnson returning the ball 67 yards for another Webb City score with 5:44 left in the half. Easley’s kick made it 21-0. Following a blocked punt, Smith scored from 22 yards out with 1:32 to play. Easley kicked the extra point to make it 28-0 and that was the score at the intermission. In the third quarter, the Cardinals drove down the field to score on a one-yard plunge by Johnson with 9:34 to play. Easley’s kick activated the running clock with a 35-0 lead. Sullivan stopped the running clock with 4:28 left in the fourth quarter as Biermann broke free for a 31-yard touchdown. The extra point attempt failed and Webb City led, 35-6. Webb City had the ball deep in Sullivan territory as time wound down. The Cardinals chose to kneel down with the ball to run out the clock with over a minute to play.

Turkey Tournament

St. Clair to open the tournament at 6 p.m. Cardinal Ritter takes on Washington at 7:30 p.m. On Thanksgiving, Borgia will take on Carnahan at 6 p.m. and St. Louis Christian will play Pacific at 7:30 p.m. Friday’s action starts with consolation games at 3 p.m. (Wednesday losers) and 4:30 p.m. (Thursday losers). The semifinals are set for 6 p.m. (Wednesday winners) and 7:30 p.m. (Thursday winners). On Saturday, the seventhplace game starts at 3 p.m. The consolation game is set for 4:30 p.m. The third-place game is set for 6 p.m. with the title game going at 7:30 p.m. The Seeds McCluer North was selected as the event’s top seed this season after winning the Class 5 state championship last campaign. The Stars are led by veteran Head Coach Randy Reed. McCluer North won the Turkey Tournament in 2010. “We will have a strong team again,” Reed said. “We have two excellent transfers who will make us very competitive.” The Stars have had the past two tournament MVPs, both now playing NCAA Division I basketball in the Southeastern Conference. They are BJ Young (Arkansas) and Jordon Granger (Auburn). Further information about the Stars was not available as of press time. Second-seeded Borgia returns three players who started at various times during the season. Seniors Casey Kuchem, Jordan Miller and John Baumstark started at different times during the season. Kuchem is a forward while Miller and Baumstark are guards. Borgia Head Coach Dave Neier is two wins away from 600 for his career and could achieve that milestone during the tournament. Neier states that the starting lineup will be supplemented by returning varsity players and players who have been promoted from last year’s 21-8 junior varsity squad. The Knights likely will use many players in a rotation format this season with the tallest players ranging in the 6-5 to 6-3 range. “The group has a chance to be a very strong team,” Neier

said. St. Louis Christian is a new school to the tournament and the first MSHSAA affiliate school to enter the event. Christian played in the Owensville Tournament last year, winning the consolation title over Linn. It was reported by Christian officials that the team has a lot of height with five players ranging from 6-5 to 6-11. The team has three seniors, two who have received NCAA Division I offers. Four sophomores are expected to see significant playing time this season. “I feel like we are one of the more talented teams in the area,” Christian Head Coach Casey Autenriet stated. Cardinal Ritter, another new team to the tournament, has a long tradition of winning basketball under Head Coach Marvin Neals. While the Lions won’t have the same style as last season after graduating Cameron Biedscheid (averaged over 31 points per game), but do have seven returners from last year’s 21-6 team. Two were starters. The Lions won a district championship last year, but fell to Lutheran North in the sectional round. “We will be small, but very competitive,” Neals stated. “We will be a pressing and fastbreak style team this year.” Chip Sodemann’s Washington Blue Jays were awarded the fifth seed after balloting. Washington went 10-15 last season and returns the bulk of its lineup. Four starters are back from that team. Sodemann said there are five key returning players in seniors Luke Schroepfer, Jared Walde and Luke Hasenjaeger and juniors Ronnie Suggs and Brad Carpenter. Additional depth will come from last year’s reserves and junior varsity team. “I think we will be competitive and look forward to a fun year with this group.” Sodemann said. Seeded sixth was the defending Four Rivers Conference champion Pacific, which went 17-9. The Indians have been picked to repeat as FRC champions in this year’s preseason coaches poll. Head Coach John VanLeer reports that six of the nine loss-


es came to teams which won over 20 games last season. Three starters, senior Zeth Boyer, junior Jeffrey Hinkle and sophomore Cullen VanLeer, return this season. VanLeer led the team with 16.8 points and 5.3 assists per game last season. “We return 50 percent of our offense and should be much better defensively,” VanLeer said. “We should be capable of scoring in many different ways.” Carnahan returns to the tournament this season after a one-year hiatus. Carnahan placed eighth in the 2010 tournament. Head Coach Jonathan Griffin stated that Carnahan should be better than its seed position. Carnahan was 14-8 last year and went 7-2 in the Public High League. Carnahan lost in the district championship game to Cardinal Ritter after beating Maplewood-Richmond Heights in the semifinals. Six players return from last year’s team. Griffin feels that Steven Baynham and Trevor Roberts will be the team’s key offensive players. “In comparison to last year’s team, I believe this team has a chance to be deeper and more talented,” Griffin said. “I believe my team can go all the way to state. The state of mind is we must work hard and intelligent every day when we get an opportunity.” The eighth seed is St. Clair, which returns to the event this season. Casey Korn is the new head coach of the Bulldogs and has four returning starters and eight seniors from last year’s 9-19 team. St. Clair lost two key players due to injury during the season and has both back healthy this year. Neyko Dominguez (14.8 points per game) and Adam Brott (9.9 ppg) were the top scorers last year. Brandon York (7.0 ppg) was one of the players who was injured and he only played five games before getting knocked out for the rest of the season. “I think we have a great chance to be competitive this season with eight returning seniors, four returning starters and two all-conference players returning,” Korn said.

In the freshman standings, Hermann, New Haven and Owensville split the conference title at 5-1. Union was fourth at 3-3 while Sullivan went 2-4, St. Clair went 1-5 and Pacific was 0-6. St. James did not field a freshman team. All-Conference Teams Hermann’s senior setter Abby Witthaus was selected as the league’s player of the year and was one of four seniors on the All-FRC first team. Witthaus recorded 799 assists, 179 digs, 53 aces, 27 kills and 15 blocks during the campaign. Following Witthaus on the first team were: • Pacific senior outside hitter Kersten McDonough; • Hermann junior middle hitter Jamie Gleeson; • New Haven senior outside hitter Kelsey Pecaut; • Union senior middle hitter Rachael Bassett; • New Haven junior out-

side hitter Rachel Steinhoff; • Owensville freshman middle hitter Hailey Diestelkamp; • Owensville junior outside hitter Grace Schlottach; and • Pacific junior outside hitter Ashley Hill. Honorable mention selections were: • Hermann senior outside hitter Natalie Witte; • Sullivan senior setter Rachel Lucas; • Pacific senior setter Abby Spuhl; • Union senior hitterdefensive specialist Lauren Terschluse; • St. James junior setter Emma Rogers; • St. Clair sophomore outside hitter Allison Hinson; • Sullivan senior outside hitter Caitlin Schmidtke; • Union sophomore outside hitter Emily Schroeder; and • New Haven junior outside hitter Emily Kallmeyer.

Missouri Rallies for SEC Victory Over Tennessee in OT, 51-48 By Steve Megargee AP Sports Writer

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Missouri quarterback James Franklin couldn’t do much of anything for much of Saturday’s game with Tennessee. By the end of the day, he couldn’t be stopped. Andrew Baggett kicked a 35-yard field goal in the fourth overtime period as Missouri rallied from a twotouchdown halftime deficit to beat Tennessee 51-48. But it was Franklin who sparked the comeback, throwing four touchdown passes — all in the final minute of regulation or overtime. Franklin’s biggest play came in the final minute of regulation.

Missouri (5-5, 2-5 Southeastern Conference) faced fourth-and-12 when Franklin scrambled around before finding Dorial Green-Beckham all alone in the left corner of the end zone for a game-tying 25-yard touchdown pass with 47 seconds remaining. “It was pretty funny because right before that, he told me — the defense probably could have seen what he was doing — he put his hand up and he was doing this, this and that,” Franklin said as he motioned how Green-Beckham drew up the route on his hand. “It was funny because that’s what he did, and it worked.” Tennessee has now lost 13 of its last 14 SEC games

over the last two seasons, casting further doubt on the future of Volunteers coach Derek Dooley. With the game tied in the final minute of regulation, Dooley and the Vols (46, 0-6) received a chorus of boos when they allowed the clock to run out after failing to gain any yardage on two straight plays. “I’m hurting because of the game and the kids,” Dooley said. “They played their tail off, man. There’s a lot of negativity, and that comes with the territory. I’m just proud of how they keep going out there and they lay it on the line.” Each team scored touchdowns on its first two overtime possessions.

Suggs Scores 15 Points in Victory SEATTLE (AP) - C.J. Wilcox scored 22 points, Abdul Gaddy had 17 and Scott Suggs (Washington High School) 15 to lead Washington to an 85-63 season-opening win over Loyola Maryland on Sunday night. Wilcox hit four 3-pointers and Suggs three from long range for the Huskies, who failed to advance to the NCAA tournament last year despite winning the Pac-12 regular-season title. “We knew we wanted to get the ball to certain people, especially C.J. and Scott,” Gaddy said. “They

are two of our good scorers and we want to find them. And sometimes we look for Aziz to have a good insideoutside attack.” Dylon Cormier had 19 points, Erik Etherly 15 and Robert Olson 12 to lead Loyola (1-1). The Greyhounds were 24-9 last season and lost to Ohio State in the second round of the NCAA tournament. The Huskies hit 7 of 11 3-pointers in the second half after leading 33-31 at halftime in the first game between the teams. They were 2 of 6 beyond the arc in the

first half, with Wilcox and Suggs each hitting one. “We played about as good as we could,” Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos said. “They shoot 3’s and when we didn’t get back and they start making them, we’re done.” Washington turned the game around in the second half behind the shooting of Wilcox and Suggs as well as the inside play of Aziz N’Diaye. The Huskies, who lost last season’s two leading scorers to the NBA, had four players score in double figures.

Four Borgia Players Make AAA Large Division Soccer Squad By Bill Battle

Missourian Sports Editor

In its first season in the Archdiocesan Athletic Association, the Borgia soccer Knights earned four spots on the league’s large division all-conference teams. Two Knights earned first team status. Junior midfielder Ben Kang and junior forward Jake Erwin were named to the division’s first team. Senior defender Alex Blechle and junior midfielder Adam Meyer were named to the second team. On the field, Borgia tied for the division championship with St. Dominic, but had to give up all of their league wins for using an in-

eligible player. Duchesne had the league’s newcomer of the year, freshman Juan Garcia. St. Dominic senior Tommy Geile was named the goalkeeper of the year. There was no indication on the league list of a player of the year or coach of the year. Defenders on the first team were Duchesne senior Ryan Phillips, St. Dominic junior Jeff Etter and St. Dominic senior David McCoy. Midfielders on the first team were Duchesne senior Austin Mitchell, St. Dominic senior Mark Steiniger, St. Dominic senior Collin Hennessey and Kang.

Forwards on the first team were Duchesne senior Ryan Thornhill, St. Dominic junior Dominic Recca and Erwin. The goalkeepers on the second team were Dominic Johns of Duchesne and Logan Feldmann of St. Dominic. Blechle was the defensive back on the second team. Midfielders on the second team were Nick Clinton of Duchesne, John Baraba of DuBourg, DaShawn Wilson of St. Mary’s and Meyer. Forwards on the second team were Matt Rapisardo of St. Mary’s, Trevor Kaufman of St. Mary’s, Logan Progais of St. Mary’s and Conor Baker of St. Dominic.

Battleline: Fall Over in the end zone. The Cardinals managed another touchdown with 24 seconds left on the clock on a 33-yard pass play from Roderique to Kohl Slaughter. The next key play came after Sullivan marched down the field through much of the second quarter. The Eagles attempted a 40-yard field goal with the wind, but Nate Brown blocked the kick and Phoenix Johnson picked up the ball and took it 67 yards for a game-changing touchdown. So, with 5:44 to play in the half, Sullivan now trailed 21-0 instead of it potentially being 14-3. After getting the kickoff, the Eagles sputtered and had to punt. But any benefit of kicking with the wind was expended when Brown blocked his second kick of the quarter and the Cardinals took over at the Sullivan 22. It took one play for Cooper Smith to run in for a touchdown with 1:32 left in the half. So, it now was 28-0 instead of something a bit closer.

day, too. Saturday’s wind came from the south and it was warm enough that you could have worn shorts and windbreaker and have been comfortable. Fortunately, the weather which brought the rain and cold didn’t head through there until the next day. Weather is something folks in that part of the state watch closely. They’ve learned the hard way May 22, 2011, the day Joplin was hit by an EF5 tornado. Almost a year and a half later, you don’t have to be a stormchaser to figure out where the storm went. When you drive through the damage path, you get the feeling of being in a wasteland. There are no trees and anything built is extremely new. After the football game, there was something else of interest for anyone willing to stick around town. Missouri Southern hosted Pittsburg State in the final home match of the season. Southern had two seniors this season with one being former East Central College standout Aleisha Joyce, who played middle hitter for the

Webb City executed a good onside kick into the wind and recovered, but gave up the ball on fair catch interference. By the time Webb City marched to score on its first possession of the second half, the game was pretty much over. Give Sullivan a lot of credit. The Eagles never gave up during the game. Sullivan also tried a lot of different things. Quarterback Adam Tiefenbrunn threw a lot more Saturday than in other games and at times he found success. The Eagles employed Justin Biermann a number of different ways, including in a wildcat formation. Biermann broke through the Webb City defense for Sullivan’s only score of the day, a 31-yard run with 4:28 to play in the contest. But that pesky wind thwarted the extra point. Jake Lochner’s kick appeared to be right on, but the wind blew it wide left. The wind seems to be a constant in Webb City. Anyone who made the trip there in 2010 probably remembers how cold the wind was that

Area Block Missouri Southern players Aleisha Joyce (10) and Katie Politte go up as Pittsburg State’s Olivia Roland (20) tries to keep the ball in play Saturday in Joplin. Joyce, a Carthage graduate, played two seasons at East Central College. Politte graduated from Borgia. Also in the action is Missouri Southern’s Sarah Cunningham (8), a gradMissourian Photo/Bill Battle. uate of Warrenton High School. Lions. When AJ played at ECC, she always had tremendous support from her family and it was good to see them again. Borgia graduate Katie Politte led Southern in kills this season and it was great to see her healthy and playing again. Many remember that she suffered a major knee injury during her senior season at Borgia. Like the Joyces, the Polittes always have been a very supportive and friendly family. Also playing was Warrenton’s Sarah Cunningham. While Southern lost in three games, it was good to see the locals playing.

Cyclones to Hold Tryout Coming off its first season in Washington, the Missouri Cyclones football team is looking to add local players for the 2013 season.

Johnson, Wurtz Represent United States in Argentina By Bill Battle

Missourian Sports Editor

Representing the United States in international softball action, Union graduate TJ Johnson and Hermann graduate Justin Wurtz had the experience of a lifetime recently in Argentina. The two played for Team USA in the IX ISF Junior Men’s World Championship in Parana, Argentina. Team USA went 5-1 in pool play to finish second to Australia, beating Denmark, Singapore, India, Venezuela and New Zealand

Tough Mudder Participants A group of members from the Four Rivers Area Family YMCA in Washington recently competed in the Tough Mudder event in Poplar Bluff, an 11-mile course full of mud and 26 obstacles that took more than four hours to complete. From left are David Cox, Brandy Kimminau, Adam Koch, Heather Henderson, Greg Birkmann, Adam Submitted Photo. Smith and Melissa Brown.  

Tough Mudder Berlin Walls, Cliffhanger, Devils Beard, Electric Eal, Funkey Monkey, Gauntlet and Greased Lightning. It was far from just a walk in the park. Just to get to the starting line, participants had to climb an 8-foot wall. Once everyone was at the starting line, the master of ceremonies gave a motivational speech, which was needed. Music also was played during the event. Anything to help the participants through the course helped. It’s impossible to fight the Tough Mudder alone. Instead, it takes a boost and a push from friends and teammates to get over walls as high as 12 feet and through underground mud tunnels — all when you’re body is soaked with water and mud. Cox, Koch and Kimminau, all Washington natives, had plenty to say about experiencing Tough Mudder for the first time. “You’re not just going through all of these different obstacles, which is chal-

scoring twice and driving in three runs. Johnson also went 2-2 in the win over New Zealand with one run. Wurtz played in seven games during the tournament, hitting .263 with one double, three runs, three RBIs, one walk and one stolen base. During pool play, he batted .333. Wurtz had his best game against Venezuela, going 2-2 with one run, two RBIs and a walk. The double came in a game against Denmark.

proud of the way we gave the effort, and like I said we went toe-to-toe with a team we have great respect for,” Long said. “A tie, who knows what that means?” What it leaves is a bad taste. “I never had to think about it until now and I sure don’t like it,” Long said. “I think everybody on the field would have liked to have gone back out and just settled it.” Coming off a bye following a blowout loss to the Patriots in London, the Rams were much improved on offense with 458 yards and three touchdowns. But the defense failed to produce a turnover for the fourth straight game and faded late in regulation, allowing two touchdowns and a field goal on the 49ers’ last three possessions in regulation with backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick in place of injured Alex Smith. Trailing 17-7, the 49ers scored two touchdowns in a span of 17 seconds, capitalizing on a lost fumble by rookie kickoff returner Isaiah Pead to take the lead when Frank Gore was untouched on a 20-yard run. “If we can get them off the field there, bottle that kid up a little bit better, we wouldn’t

even be talking about this,” Long said. “We had an opportunity to end that thing.” Sam Bradford threw for 275 yards with no interceptions and a pair of touchdowns, including a 2-yarder to Austin Pettis that put the Rams ahead 24-21 with 1:09 to go in regulation. But the strong numbers offered Bradford no sense of fulfillment. “It’s a weird feeling,” Bradford said Sunday. “I think the mood in this locker room was disappointment.” The worst of it was reconciling all of those wasted opportunities. Fisher blamed the delay of game penalty that nullified Greg Zuerlein’s apparent gamewinning 53-yard field goal in overtime on rookie mistakes. Fisher called a timeout after second down to discuss the kick and tell players, “They will not ice you,” because the 49ers were out of timeouts. “So, get out there, get set, kick it through those two poles because we’ve got a plane waiting for us,” Fisher said. “It’s just unfortunate, just one of those things.” Both Zuerlein and holder Johnny Hekker, also the punter, are rookies.

Rams Still Coming to Grips With Rare Tie Against San Francisco

lenging enough, but you’re pushing yourself through mud that’s up to your knees and your waist,” said Cox, an avid rugby player in the area. “There were random mud pits everywhere. It was very competitive. It’s no joke.” Koch, a former Washington High School football player, said he was challenged right off the bat. “The second obstacle on the course was a pit probably 6 feet deep that was full of ice water. It was brutal,” Koch said. “It was tough, but I loved it. The best part was looking forward to what was coming up next.” Kimminau pushed her way through the course as well, but agreed that it took teamwork. “As a girl, there was no way I could climb over those walls by myself. It definitely took teamwork. You’re forced to work as a team, which made it fun going through the obstacles, ” Kimminau said. “I’ve run in a couple of half-marathons, but this was definitely the hardest thing physically I’ve ever done. There was a lot of walking, crawling and jumping.” The Tough Mudder is much different than Muddy Buddy and Warrior Dash. It’s three times as long and requires supreme athletic ability and mental toughness. “You definitely have to be in shape. You have to train and prepare for it,” Cox said. “It takes a lot of upper-body strength.” It took the local YMCA team four hours and 15 minutes to finish the race, which all seven of them did. “There’s no down time,” Koch said. “I think everyone in our heat finished the race, but it takes a lot of work. There’s a lot of climbing and jumping. Sometimes you have to carry each other.” So why would anyone want to put themselves through this for better than four hours? “I was looking for a physically demanding challenge and definitely found one. From start to finish, it was very challenging,” Cox said. “I had a blast. I guess I just like beating the crap out of myself. It was an eyeopening experience. I can’t wait for the next one,” Koch

before losing to Australia. In the playoffs, the Americans lost to Pool B winner Argentina and then fell to Canada. Johnson, who is playing baseball at John Wood Community College in Quincy, Ill., batted .471 during the tournament with one double, two triples and a home run. He scored five runs and drove in five. He walked once and stole one base. Johnson hit .615 during pool play. He had a double, triple and home run in the win over India Nov. 4. He went 3-4 in that game while

added. “One thing I really liked was not only does it donate to the Wounded Warrior Project, but there were also wounded warriors competing,” Kimminau said. “It was neat to see them out there and help them when they needed it.” The YMCA team stayed together throughout the race. “We all finished together,” Koch said. Originally, Koch and Kimminau had just planned to compete, but wisely recruited some teammates at the YMCA. “Adam took the initiative to put the team together,” Cox said. “I met everyone on our team here at the Y,” Kimminau said. “I’m glad we got the team together. We all supported each other and helped each other through it.” Koch was quick to answer the question of whether there will be another appearance in the Tough Mudder. “Absolutely. I’ll do it again. There’s one in April in St. Louis and one in September in Kansas City. I’ll do both,” Koch said. “I encourage everyone to give it a try. You just have to train and prepare for it. And don’t do it alone. Bring friends.”

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Danny Amendola’s first game in a month for the St. Louis Rams was a huge success. And that’s without the 142 yards on a pair of big plays that were nullified by penalties. A day after repeated mistakes cost the Rams an upset at San Francisco, the wide receiver said he’d try to take the positives out the NFL’s first tie game in four years. Easy to say, hard to swallow. “It’s frustrating,” said Amendola, understating the obvious. “We made a lot of good plays. At the same time, we left a lot of plays out there.” Exaggerating just a bit, Amendola added: “It’s just a long time to give it your everything. I mean, it’s 5-6 hours long.” Well, maybe it seemed like that after leaving the field feeling curiously empty. The actual game time was 3 hours and 50 minutes. Defensive end Chris Long said if fans kept their eyes on the field and disregarded the scoreboard, it would be easy to see the Rams took a major step forward against one of the NFL’s top teams. They did it without a pair of rookie starters, too, with cornerback Janoris Jenkins and wide receiver Chris Givens suspended for the game for violating team rules. Both players have been reinstated for this week’s game against the New York Jets. But with a wry chuckle, Long added that it’s impossible to factor out the bottom line. “Shoot, you know, we can be

WASHINGTON (AP) — The sex scandal that led to CIA Director David Petraeus’ downfall widened Tuesday with word the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan is under investigation for thousands of alleged “inappropriate communications” with another woman involved in the case. Even as the FBI prepared a timeline for Congress about the investigation that brought to light Petraeus’ extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta revealed that the Pentagon had begun an internal investigation into emails from Gen. John Allen to a Florida woman involved in the case. Allen succeeded Petraeus as the top American commander in Afghanistan in July 2011, and his nomination to become the next commander of U.S. European Command and the commander of NATO forces in Europe has now been put on hold, as the scandal seemed certain to ensnare another acclaimed military figure. In a White House statement early Tuesday, National Security spokesman Tommy Vietor said President Barack Obama has held Allen’s nomination at Panetta’s request. Obama, the statement said, “remains focused on fully supporting our extraordinary troops and coalition partners in Afghanistan, who Gen. Allen continues to lead as he has so ably done for over a year.” It was Broadwell’s threatening emails to Jill Kelley, a Florida woman who is a Petraeus family friend, that led to the FBI’s discovery of communications between Broadwell and Petraeus indicating they were having an affair. Petraeus acknowledged the affair when he resigned from the CIA post on Friday. In the latest revelations, a Pentagon official traveling with Panetta to Australia said “inappropriate com-

munications” — 20,000 to 30,000 pages of emails and other documents from Allen’s communications with Kelley between 2010 and 2012 — are under review. He would not say whether they involved sexual matters or whether they are thought to include unauthorized disclosures of classified information. He said he did not know whether Petraeus is mentioned in the emails. Allen has denied wrongdoing. If Allen was found to have had an affair with Kelley, he could face charges of adultery, which is a crime under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The decision by the FBI to hand off the Allen information to the military seems to indicate the issue is not one involving the handling of classified information, but rather some other issue. The Petraeus case has sparked an uproar in Congress, with lawmakers complaining they should have been told earlier about the probe that has roiled the intelligence and military establishment. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, called the latest revelations in the case “a Greek tragedy.” FBI Issue The issue of what the FBI knew, when it notified top Obama administration officials, and when Congress was told, has brought criticism from lawmakers, who say they should have been told earlier. The White House wasn’t informed of the FBI investigation that involved Petraeus until Nov. 6, Election Day, although agents began looking at Petraeus’ actions months earlier, sometime during the summer. Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., complained that she first learned of the matter from the media late last week, and confirmed it in a phone call to the then-

CIA director on Friday. A federal law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss details of the investigation, said the FBI had concluded relatively quickly — and certainly by late summer at the latest — that there was no security breach. Absent a security breach, it was appropriate not to notify Congress or the White House earlier, this official said. Extramarital affairs are viewed as particularly risky for intelligence officers because they might be blackmailed to keep the affair quiet. For military personnel, adultery is a crime under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Agents later told Petraeus that Broadwell sent emails warning Kelley to stay away from the general and carrying a threatening tone. Friends and former staff members of Petraeus told The Associated Press that he has assured them his relationship with Kelley was platonic, although Broadwell apparently saw her as a romantic rival. They said Petraeus was shocked to learn last summer of Broadwell’s emails to Kelley. Broadwell had high security clearances as part of her former job as a reserve Army major in military intelligence. But those clearances are only in effect when a soldier is on active duty, which she was not at the time she researched the Petraeus biography. FBI agents conducted a search of Broadwell’s Charlotte, N.C., home on Monday. And the criminal investigation continued into the emails to Kelley, including whether Petraeus had any hand in them. At that point in late summer, FBI Director Robert Mueller and eventually Attorney General Eric Holder were notified that agents had uncovered what appeared to be an extramarital affair involving Petraeus.

‘Fiscal Cliff’ to Hit Everybody WASHINGTON (AP) — Everyone who pays income tax — and some who don’t —will feel it. So will doctors who accept Medicare, people who get unemployment aid, defense contractors, air traffic controllers, national park rangers and companies that do research and development. The package of tax increases and spending cuts known as the “fiscal cliff” takes effect in January unless Congress passes a budget deal by then. The economy would be hit so hard

that it would likely sink into recession in the first half of 2013, economists say. And no matter who you are, it will be all but impossible to avoid the pain. Middle income families would have to pay an average of about $2,000 more next year, the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center has calculated. Up to 3.4 million jobs would be lost, the Congressional Budget Office estimates. The unemployment rate would reach 9.1 percent from the current 7.9 percent. Stocks could

plunge. The nonpartisan CBO estimates the total cost of the cliff in 2013 at $671 billion. Collectively, the tax increases would be the steepest to hit Americans in 60 years when measured as a percentage of the economy. “There would be a huge shock effect to the U.S. economy,” says Mark Vitner, an economist at Wells Fargo. Most of the damage — roughly two-thirds — would come from the tax increases. But the spending cuts would cause pain, too.

Urge Action on Rivers ST. LOUIS (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon and the barge industry are imploring the federal government to take steps to keep enough water flowing on the drought-ridden Missouri and Mississippi rivers to avert a potential “economic disaster.” Nixon sent a letter Friday to the Army’s assistant secretary urging the Army Corps of Engineers to continue providing sufficient water flow from the Missouri to the Mississippi River. Current corps plans would reduce the amount of water released from the Missouri’s upstream reservoirs starting next week. “I urge the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to avert potential economic disaster on this vital avenue American farmers use to get their goods into the world market,” Nixon wrote to Jo-Ellen Darcy, assistant secretary of the Army. Meanwhile, the American Waterways Operators

and Waterways Council last week urged Congress and President Barack Obama to act or potentially see a halt to the transportation of millions of tons of essential goods up and down the Mississippi. The corps’ offices were closed Monday for Veter-

ans Day, and messages seeking comment were not returned. That agency, the U.S. Coast Guard and other river interests have scheduled a news conference for Friday in St. Louis to discuss the current state and outlook for the Mississippi.

Bishops Stay Course On Gay Marriage Fight BALTIMORE (AP) — A subdued U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops acknowledged Monday that voters rejected the stands they took against gay marriage and birth control, but church leaders gave no sign they would change their strategy ahead. Same-sex marriage supporters made a four-state sweep of ballot measures last week, despite intensive advocacy by Roman Catholic bishops in favor of traditional marriage. Bish-

ops also spoke out sharply against President Barack Obama’s mandate that most employers provide health insurance that covers artificial contraception. Critics accused the bishops of going so far that they appeared to be backing Republican Mitt Romney. The bishops insist their complaints were not partisan. Still, they now face four more years with an administration many of them characterized as a threat to the church.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican leaders say the government can raise tax “revenues” without raising tax “rates.” But they have yet to detail how they would pursue it. The distinction might mean little to Americans who end up with larger tax bills even if their tax rates don’t change. This politically tricky trade-off is about to take center stage in negotiations over how to reduce the federal deficit and avoid going over the “fiscal cliff” in just seven weeks.

In New Jersey, the Humane Society deployed dozens of first responders using mobile units and boats to bring in about 60 displaced animals each day on the barrier islands hit by the storm.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Andy Jay Arbeitman’s resignation took effect soon after the agreement was signed Nov. 1. The school board voted 6-0 in May to put Arbeitman on paid leave, soon after an anonymous letter voiced concerns about him. The letter alleged things such as Arbeitman arbitrarily changed the sick leave policy for staff, failed to discipline a student who brought a knife to school, and asked staff members to spy on other staff. Arbeitman had been with the district since 2007.

City to Hike Hangar Rent at Airport n In Effort to Balance Budget Line Item, Tenants Will Pay 71 Percent More in 2013

By Keith E. Domke

St. Clair Missourian Editor

As St. Clair officials continue to work toward banging out a workable 2013 city budget, a decision was made last week during the board of aldermen’s regular

meeting that should help the airport line item in the general fund become balanced. By a unanimous vote, the aldermen agreed to increase the monthly rent in the blue-T hangar at the St. Clair Regional Airport to $300, effective Jan. 1,

2013. The current fee is $175. The rate increase computes to about 71 percent. City Administrator Rick Childers told the aldermen on Nov. 5 that unless hangar rent is raised, the airport again would operate in the red, continuing the

trend that has been going on for several years. “We’re projecting expenses of about $30,137 (for 2013)” Childers said during the meeting. “With hangar rental at $175 per month with eight hangars full, we will be at very much below

that (as far as income).” Currently, eight spaces are being rented in the one remaining hangar at the facility with room for 10. The hangar rental provides the only source of income for the airport. • See Hangar Page 2S

Public Works Director Ed Bliss said if all goes well, East Springfield Road should be resurfaced sometime within the next few days. Bliss told the St. Clair Board of Aldermen during their most recent meeting that paving is scheduled for the road between Main Street and Highway 30 “sometime in mid-November.” He did not have an exact date. The east side of the Springfield Road project nearly is complete while work continues on the west side from the city limits to Highway 30. A new, 10-inch water main is in place on the west side and all hookups have been finished, Bliss said. The Springfield Road project, when completed, will supply a newly surfaced street from Main Street, across Highway 30 and to

Ceremonies Salute Veterans By Keith E. Domke

St. Clair Missourian Editor

Individuals involved in Veterans Day ceremonies in and around St. Clair this week asked fellow Americans to remember and thank members of the U.S. military who have served or currently serve in the armed forces. Ceremonies took place at the St. Clair American Legion and at local schools both in St. Clair and Lonedell. Veterans Day officially was Sunday. Area schools paid tribute on Monday. “For some, Veterans Day is just another day,” Commander Fred Arflack said during Sunday’s American Legion Post 347 event. “But we need to remember that Veterans Day is a special day. It’s a day to give thanks to veterans no matter how they have served.”

“That was very touching,” he said. “I thought that that was amazing.” Arflack said that today fellow Americans need to thank veterans “when you see these guys in the store or on the street.” “Thank them and welcome them home,” he said. “Give them a welcome they may have never received.” Also speaking during the ceremony were 9th District American Legion Commander Ray Rolley, Andy Velasco of the Sons of the American Legion, Brian Keller of the Legion Riders and Lois Huff of the Legion Ladies Auxiliary.

Superintendent Mike Murphy told St. Clair R-XIII Board of Education members to expect an expense of at least $350,000 annually for the school district to add health benefits for classified staff employees. Murphy and the board continued the discussion on the issue during their October meeting. The topic again is on the agenda this month when the board gathers on Thursday. In September, the superintendent said expanding the benefit to classified staff would be “a challenge” because of the significance it would have on the district’s budget. Currently, teachers and administrators are provided with health insurance but other employees are not, including the full-time classified staff. In September, Murphy estimated costs could top $400,000. That figure increased to about $462,000 a month later, but the superintendent said some of the district’s transportation employees could be “backed out” to drop the cost between $360,000 to $380,000. The district has said a full-time employee is anyone who works 30 or more hours per week. Murphy mentioned President Barack Obama’s Health Care Reform Law, which will require most U.S. citizens and legal residents to have health insurance starting in 2014. Obama was re-elected to a second term last week. “We would have an expenditure out here that would be new,” Murphy told board members on Oct. 18. “And we have three options. “The third option would be to do nothing, not spend any money on this,” he said. “But if we attempt to gain compliance, we have two other options. First would be to recover the expense through budget design or, the second option, the flip side, we can look at how we can generate the money to cover the expenditure. “But we definitely would have to plan for an expenditure that will exceed $350,000.” • See R-XIII Page 2S

Charging $175 per month for eight planes computes to a yearly total of $16,800. Increasing the rent to $300 would bring in $28,800, or almost to the level of the projected expenses. The Air Evac Lifeteam also pays hangar rent at the facility for its helicopter. It pays $300 per month in rent, which brings in another $3,600. The total rent collected would be $32,400, or more than the projected expenses. The majority of the airport expenses are for insurance and maintenance costs, which includes mowing the airport property located on the north side of the city between Interstate 44 and Highway 47. In discussing the airport and its hangar rental, Childers mentioned that the issue is one of the complaints of current tenants. Some of those individuals have filed a federal complaint with the Office of the Inspector General stating among other things that the city does not send the lease agreement contracts

to the pilots soon enough. So, the issue was brought up now instead of coinciding with the time the 2013 budget will be passed sometime before the end of the year. In the blue-T hangar that still stands at the airport, prior monthly rental rates were $130 prior to and in 2008, $155 in 2009 and 2010 and $175 in 2011 and 2012. The airport lost money in each of those years and is projected to do so again this year. Childers said he realizes it’s possible the rent increase will cause some of the pilots to remove their planes from the hangar and thus lower the incoming funds, but that’s a chance he said the city is willing to take. The city administrator also said raising the hangar rental rate to the approved amount was an idea generated by Bill Dunn, executive vice president of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. “Mr. Dunn recommended the increase,” Childers said. “He said the pilots should be responsible for covering the expenses of the airport.” Dunn traveled to St. Clair earlier this year to take a look at the local airport and meet with local pilots, city officials and representatives from U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer’s office to talk about the facility and its future. “He made those comments during that meeting,” Childers said. A hangar lease proposal will be discussed during the board’s special meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday in city hall. Also on that agenda is the city’s third budget workshop.

Hangars In spring 2011, the city sought bids to remove two other hangars at the airport after City Inspector Jeremy Crowe in late 2010 deemed them dangerous and basically unsafe to use. Crowe had said that he found multiple problems with both the Atkinson and shade hangars, which initially led to a discussion on whether to repair or raze them. After seeking and reviewing repair bids, the aldermen said repairing them would cost too much money, so they voted at that time to raze the dilapidated structures. Federal Aviation Administration officials gave their approval early last year for their removal. The two hangars were removed last year. Closure St. Clair is trying to close the regional airport to make room for proposed retail development on the nearly 80-acre site. The closure plan has been in the works for years, and several documents have been sent to Federal Aviation Administration officials stating the city’s rationale. Mayor Ron Blum also traveled to Washington, D.C., earlier this year to discuss the issue, and the FAA gave the city an outline of steps to follow for closure to be a possibility. Blum and Childers have requested a final decision be made by the FAA by about Thanksgiving. Closure has to be granted by the FAA because the city has used federal grants, the latest in 2006, to fund improvements at the facility. Dunn said his organization he represents serves as a gatekeeper to general aviation as well as to the pilots who use the national aviation system. When he was in St. Clair, he made it clear that his stance is that the local facility should remain open. Dunn also has questioned the city’s accounting system, saying it “leaves something to be desired.” Local airport tenant Jim DeVries of Pacific has been the most vocal opposition to the city in its quest to close the airport. He has accused the city administration of diverting funds and “stealing money from the airport.”

rale also performed. Veterans from all branches of the military were honored and received several ovations at different times during the event. “Thank you for your commitment. Thank you for your service,” SCHS Principal Kevin Hillman said. During his brief remarks, Hillman said local students are taught about character with focus on words like honor, teamwork, commitment and service. “I hope our students understand the importance of this,” Hillman said. Cadet Capt. Harley Love explained that the whiteclothed POW/MIA table is “filled with symbolism.” “The table is set for our prisoners of war and those missing in action from all wars,” he said. “They are not with us today. Their chairs are empty, but saved for their hopeful return. Let us remember their absence.” The flag was folded with an explanation of what each fold represents. “The flag-folding ceremony represents the same religious principles on which our country was originally founded,” Love said. “... In the armed forces of the United States, at the ceremony of retreat, the flag is lowered, folded in a triangle and kept under watch throughout the night as a

are our heroes.” Two veterans briefly addressed the students and adults in attendance in Lonedell. Franklin County Sheriff ’s Deputy Edward Herwig, who also is Lonedell RXIV’s D.A.R.E. officer, also thanked fellow veterans for their service. “I have a special place in my heart for veterans,” he said. Veteran Mark Richardson used the exact same words in thanking his fellow veterans, and he shared some Vietnam combat stories with the audience. “It’s an honor to speak here today,” he said. “It’s an honor to represent veterans in our community at this event.” Richardson charged all educators and other adults to “teach moral strength” to today’s youth. “Where do we get these people (servicemen and women)?” he asked. “We get them from schools like this. Lonedell also gave a video tribute to veterans in the Army, Navy Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. The Belting Bobcat Choir sang the “Star Spangled Banner” and “You Are Our Heroes.” They also led the audience in “America the Beautiful.” The school’s seventh- and eighth-grade band also performed while area veterans entered and left the gymnasium.

about covering the expense through a tax increase. Doing the math, a 25cent tax increase would pump in $377,500. The increase would have to be approved by voters. Murphy provided information to board members that showed St. Clair R-XIII currently has the lowest operations/teachers fund tax levy in the area. Information also indicated that the state adequacy target level for that levy is $3.43. A 25-cent increase to $3 still would fall below that threshold, Murphy said. If the board would opt to recover the expense through the budget at current levels, programs and/ or staff reductions would have to be considered, Murphy said. In any regard, the superintendent said with the financial constraints the district is facing, some tough decisions will have to be made. “I’m not trying to scare anyone,” he said in Septem-

ber. “We will try to work within our means. (But) we have eroded all flexibility without looking at staffing.” In October, he said, “My intent here is to solidify the direction of the board. We’re going to need to know how we’re going to pay for this.” Mike Drewel said he and his fellow school board members “owe it to ourselves to get the data.” “We need to evaluate it and understand the numbers,” he said. Board President Dave Berkel agreed. “We don’t want to shoot in the dark,” he said. ‘We want to make an informed decision.” Murphy said since there is an interest to know more about potential options, he will research them and bring additional information to the board in November. That meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Thursday in the central office on Bardot Street.

was declared unlivable after the crash. No one was home at the time of the incident. The Carranzas currently are having their house repaired. Bliss said Jorge Carranza requested something be done at the location to improve safety. Police Chief Bill Hammack agreed the curve can be dangerous. “We have a 90-degree turn on a downslope,” Hammack said. “I’m always worried about it during inclement weather.” Two bids — one for about $2,800 and the other for about $4,800 — were received to provide and install the guardrail. Bliss said a speed limit and caution sign also will be erected at the site. The speed limit in the area is 20 mph.

Other Projects Bliss also said that asphalt patching has been finished on city streets for the year. Because of the three major road projects this year — Springfield, North Outer Road at Highway 47 and Interstate 44 and Highway 30 from Highway PP to Forest Hill Drive — no other road resurfacing projects were budgeted this year. So, city crews have patched streets as best they can for now, Bliss said. City officials currently are working on the 2013 budget. In addition, Bliss said two of the city’s three saltspreading machines are ready to go. “We’re still working on the third one,” he said.


The superintendent said the board’s discussion would not include the insurance for the Franklin County Cooperative. That would be handled in a different way, he said. Tax Levy Much of the discussion centered on the school district’s tax levy. The overall R-XIII rate is $3.37 for every $100 of assessed valuation, but Murphy said the 62-cent debt service levy would not be in this mix, leaving the $2.05 incidental, or operations, levy and the 70-cent teachers fund. Murphy noted that St. Clair R-XIII currently has established an operations tax levy at the state minimum $2.75. He also said for each penny the rate would be increased, with current valuation levels, about $15,100 would be added to district coffers. “In looking at the idea of where we would have to go, we’re looking at a quarter increase,” he said


the west city limits, provide new water and updated sewer lines throughout and add new sidewalks. Park Drive Bliss told the aldermen that plans are in place to put about 100 feet of guardrail along the nearly 90-degree curve on Park Drive between Pasadena and Missouri avenues. The curve was the site of an accident in September when Mary Stinecipher suffered some kind of medical condition while driving her pickup, failed to negotiate the curve in the road and drove along the driveway, through the garage and into the house at 565 Park Ave. at a high rate of speed. The vehicle came to a stop in the living room of the residence. The home, owned by Jorge and Sharie Carranza,

The next morning it is brought out and at the ceremony or reveille, run aloft as a symbol of our belief in the resurrection of the body.” The flag then was folded from the stripes toward the stars with each of the 13 folds explained. A veterans’ Power Point presentation concluded the ceremony. It showed area veterans or current members of the armed services. A ceremony also was conducted on Monday at Edgar Murray Elementary School. It included a speech from U.S. Air Force Major Leif Johnson, the introduction of other veterans in attendance, a performance by the Honor Choir during a Power Point presentation and the playing of taps as well as a history of it. Lonedell The same SCHS JROTC flag-folding ceremony that took place in St. Clair earlier in the day was conducted in the afternoon at Lonedell as part of its Veterans Day recognition. “I am grateful for your service,” Lonedell Principal Jen Ulrich said to veterans in attendance. “I’m grateful for your sacrifices, and I’m grateful for our freedom.” Later on, Ulrich continued. “There are not enough words to express our gratitude to you,” she said. “You

A Doggone Good List I absolutely love dogs. And I absolutely tolerate cats. Usually. During my 51 years of life on this earth, dogs have been one of the great pleasures of my life. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had four outstanding canine companions, including my current fourlegged friend that helps make our house a home. My present pooch spends much of her time protecting her territory. She woofs, barks and growls at anything that comes around the house, especially squirrels, the neighborhood dogs and people. She also gets perturbed at our cat anytime he comes near her food. She catches a Frisbee quite well, but I can’t teach her how to toss it back. At least she knows how to play fetch properly — most of the time. And, my dog also spends a lot of time watching television. True story. She even has her favorite shows and commercials. But, she sits or stands too close to the TV, meaning we probably will have to get her glasses as she reaches seniorhood. Yes, I admit to you that my dog and I watch television together. Oh, and she also is a Cubs fan, even though I’m not sure she can distinguish Cubbies blue from Cardinals red on the boob tube. Hollywood Dogs Over time, there have been a great number of TV, movie or cartoon dogs. In a few, short minutes, I came up with a list of more than 50. Of course, I have my favorites from that list, and I’m sure I’m even forgetting a canine or two. To be considered a Hollywood dog in my book, however, the creature truly must be a dog. That eliminates characters like Wile E. Coyote, super genius, who happens to be one of my favorite cartoon characters. Anyway, so who can forget the likes of Huckleberry Hound, Astro, Scooby Doo, Odie, Max, Pluto, Goofy, Pongo and his big family and Lady, the Tramp and friends? And what about Spuds MacKenzie, McGruff the Crime Dog, Beethoven, the Shaggy Dog, Toto, Marley, Wishbone and Buddy, better known as Air Bud? How many of you even know who Droopy, Brutus, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, Beauregard Burnside III, Fred Bassett, Einstein, Hector, Hank the Cowdog, Flash, Horrible, Sprocket, Tiger, Ralph, Petey, Gidget, Uno, Strongheart and

Smokey are? I also remember Cuddly Duddly. And then there’s Slinky. Did you have one of those? And how many of you know that Indiana Jones from the Lost Ark, the Temple of Doom, the Last Crusade and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was named after the family dog? I’ve even sung to Bingo, or is it B-I-N-G-O, still want to know how much is that doggie in the window and wonder where, oh where has my little dog gone? I’ve also heard about Me and You and a Dog Named Boo as well as Elvis telling us that you ain’t nothing but a hound dog. And my daughters learned about Spot and the Poky Little Puppy through me reading to them. I’ve worn my share of Hush Puppies, and eaten my fair share of them, too. Those last two may not count, but at any rate, that’s a lot of famous dogs, and we’re not even to my favorites. Those favorites? Top Ten Mister Peabody, from Rocky and Bullwinkle fame. He was a genius who wore wire-rimmed glasses and provided us with history segments with his boy, Sherman. Clifford, the big, red dog. He, along with Emily, was a favorite of mine growing up and also became a favorite of my two daughters. And, if you remember, he was a big, big dog. Lassie, the long-haired collie who saved Timmy and his family more than once. Muttley, the snickering dog who traveled with Dick Dastardly through cartoons. When I was little, I was a charter member of the Dick Dastardly Fan Club. Marmaduke, the Great Dane comic strip character. Nipper, the RCA dog created in 1899 through the famous drawing “His Masters Voice.” A copy of that hangs in my St. Clair Missourian office. Old Yeller, the lop-eared yellow dog from Texas. I grew up loving that book, the movie and that canine. And who didn’t cry when Old Yeller died? Underdog, who swallowed a super-energy pill for

strength and rescued folks around the world. Known as Shoeshine Boy when he was a regular dog, he hung around with Sweet Polly Pruebred and uttered his famous cry, “There’s no need to fear, Underdog is here.” Rin Tin Tin, the original super dog. I honestly read his biography, not autobiography, earlier this year. I thought about reading it aloud to my dog at home, but decided against it. There have been several Rin Tin Tins since the original, and something I found interesting was one of the namesake German shepherds was not a good enough actor, so he had to have a stand-in during some of his movie scenes. That deflated my bubble just a little bit. That leaves Snoopy. There isn’t enough space here to talk about this great dog from Peanuts, but he is No. 1 with me. I am an avid Snoopy fan and collector and have many items in my office and at home showing my loyalty to him. I get Snoopy things for Christmas and my birthday and even get memorabilia from friends and fellow collectors. I have a knickknack in my office showing Snoopy on his doghouse smiling at his typewriter while thinking, “I’m an admirer of my own writing.” Hmmmm. Appropriate? I know that Snoopy came from a litter of eight puppies and that his parents were named Missy and Baxter. His siblings? There are Andy, Marbles, Olaf, Spike and Belle mentioned in the comic strip. And there are Molly and Rover mentioned in a TV show. As Snoopy himself states in the June 18, 1989, Father’s Day strip, “There were eight of us in the litter.” He truly is the Joe Cool of dogs, other than mine at home. There you have it — my dog eat dog world of canines. I always will believe that dog is man’s best friend. And in my house, the opposite is true — man is dog’s best friend, too. That’s one thing I truly enjoy having both ways. As always, thanks for reading.

Minor Accident St. Clair Police, fire district and ambulance personnel responded to North Commercial Avenue at Weatherford Avenue at 3:10 p.m. Monday afternoon after a minor two-vehicle accident took place. Both cars involved ended up in the apartment complex parking lot near the intersection after the crash. According to the police report, Shelby Roberts, 21, of Robertsville, was eastbound on North Commercial and attempting to make a left-hand turn across the westbound lane. Her Ford Taurus was struck by a Chevrolet Lumina driven westbound by Betty Brown, 40, of St. Clair. Brown suffered minor injuries, and was treated at the scene by emergency responders.

R-XIII Board to Discuss Its Finances, Other Items During Thursday Meeting Several items under new and old business are scheduled to be discussed Thursday when the St. Clair RXIII School District Board of Education meets at 7 p.m. in the central office on Bardot Street. Under new business, a couple of financial-related items are on the agenda. Superintendent Mike Murphy plans to discuss recommended amendments to the 2012-2013 budget, including the addition of the after-school tutoring program as well as elementary educational program expenditures. Also, Murphy

is expected to provide a review of the state foundation formula funding estimates for fiscal year 2013 and the potential impact to increasing the local operating levy. In addition, Murphy is scheduled to review the district’s existing policy and procedures regarding bullying and suicide prevention, and Assistant Superintendent Tanya Vest will provide a review of the Missouri School Improvement Program 5, which is the state’s school accountability system for reviewing and accrediting public schools. It is entering its fifth version

this year after being implemented in 1990. In old business, the board will continue discussions on alternative methods of providing revenue to cover an increase in health insurance costs as well as continue its review of extracurricular activities and salary schedules for adults responsible for those activities. Also on the agenda is a discussion centering on utilized programs such as the Missouri Reading Initiative and Everyday Math. Administrative reports also will be given. The public is invited.

Woman, Girl Hurt in Crash A 28-year-old Bourbon woman and an 11-year-old St. Clair girl suffered minor injuries on Friday afternoon when they were involved in a twovehicle accident on Highway 47 at Highway AD. Both females were in the same car, a 1993 Toyota Corolla, and were taken by Union Ambulance personnel to Mercy Hospital Washington. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, Lance K. Brueggman was southbound on Highway 47 while an eastbound 1999 Lincoln Town Car driven by Kennard L. Curtis, 83, of Valley Park, was attempting to make a left-hand turn from Highway AD onto Highway 47. The patrol stated that Curtis failed to yield to Brueggman, and the front of her vehicle struck the left side of the Lincoln. Eleven-year-old Taylor N. Hollingshead was a passenger in Brueggman’s car. All three individuals were wearing safety belts. Damage to both vehicles was extensive. The crash occurred at 4:02 p.m.

Historical Society Wants Log Cabin Restored, Preserved By Sue Blesi

Franklin County Historian

I have cabin fever and hope it is contagious! Gail Kolkmeyer emailed me more than a month ago to say someone had been tearing down an older home at 500 S. Oak St. in Union, exposing a log cabin beneath the clapboard siding. I grabbed my camera and headed out the door, afraid a wrecking ball might cut short my quest. When I arrived, I saw several people looking at the historical treasure and taking pictures. I was glad to learn that the demolition had been halted when the cabin was uncovered. I learned it belonged to J.C. Platt, a nephew to the Platt family that has owned the Platt Nursery for years. Since that day, a steady stream of onlookers has flocked to South Oak to see the cabin and take pictures. Ownership I wanted to find out when it was built. I began to unravel the chain of ownership, a task that required repeated visits to the Recorder of Deeds office, Four Rivers Genealogical Society and Hansen Title. Sue Lampe and Rick Narup of Four Rivers Genealogical Society were working toward the same goal, and we pooled our findings. I was surprised to discover such a small residence could have had so many owners. The house is in the George Schmich subdivision, which was platted in 1904. However, the land was part of a 37.5-acre parcel donated to Union after it was determined

History of Franklin County to move the county seat from Newport to the new town in 1826. The next owner was David Edwards, followed by John Maupin. There may be gaps in this listing, but it belonged to Michael Moutier at some point before George Schmich subdivided it. Following subdivision, the next owner was Cornelia Rulenbacher, a widow who sold the property to August Fink for $800 in 1906. A year later, Fink sold it to George and Anna Parmentier. The next owner was Frank Dehn, who sold to Emil and Mary (Duemler) Mantels in 1919. In 1922, they sold it to Engelbert Lenau for $2,500. Lenau was a retired farmer from the Neier community who had been robbed twice while living in the rural community, doubtless providing a reason for him to move into town. The Lenau estate sold the house to Bessie (Stubblefield) Winters in 1937. She was the childless widow of John C. Winters, who had died in 1926. It took a bit of sleuthing to figure out where the property went after her death in 1954.

This log cabin was found inside the also-shown white clapboard-sided home on Oak Street in Union. The newer siding on the modest home quietly sheltered and camouflaged a historic gem for a century or so. When the clapboard siding Missourian Photos. was removed, the metamorphosis was complete as the pioneer log cabin was exposed to view. Finally, after discovering her death certificate had been signed by Dorothy Gambill of Lemay, I resumed my search and learned that Gambill had sold the place to Joyce Marie Hanlon in 1955. Ben Koenig and his wife, Lelia, bought it in 1956. After Ben’s death, Lelia married Robert R. Zingre. Robert and Lelia Zingre sold the property to Eugene R. and Carol Platt in 1974, and a month later it was deeded over to Eugene’s brother, James “Jimmie” George Platt. He died in 2009 and today, the property belongs to his son, James “J.C.” Platt. Log Cabin After three weeks of research, I was excited that the cabin might have been the home of Nathan Richardson, who had donated the land to Union in 1827. The trail of ownership had not revealed who built the cabin or the addition. I contacted log construction

expert Crosby Brown because we needed to “date” the structure. He believed it was built between 1880 and 1910 because there was no fireplace, the window pane configuration was from that era and a couple of lesser reasons. However, that was not the end of the story. Sue Lampe and Barbara Alfermann emailed me to say they found a recorded lease from 1878 where Mary A. Hobelmann had leased the land “on which the dwelling house and outhouses are situated, including garden and vineyard near the residence and also a pasture lot ... to John Kirchmann.” That provides us with the name of another owner but more importantly, tells us a house, probably the cabin, was there in 1878. Today, while looking at the photos, I realized that the log cabin did not face Oak Street. Oak Street and the surrounding streets were established prior to the production of the

1878 Atlas. Could this indicate it had been built before the streets were platted? Could there have been an old road leading in front of the cabin when it was built? The search to learn more continues. Marc Houseman, director of the Washington Historical Society, said “several local historians feverishly are working to try to establish just whose house this was; regardless of whose house it was we know it is early and in the city of Union is unique.” Can we keep this bit of history from being dismantled and moved away from Union or incorporated into new construction, which has been the fate of so many log structures? It should be repaired and preserved for future generations to learn the town’s history. Union is a town historians have accused of failing to preserve historical structures. The depot is gone. Union has no “historic district,” and no

buildings in Union are on the National Historic Register. But here is a chance for the town to redeem itself. This cabin presents the community with an opportunity to preserve the past for the future. Surely if Sullivan can undertake to restore the massive Harney Mansion, Union citizens can come out in support of preserving this cabin. The Franklin County Historical Society is interested in preserving this pioneer dwelling, possibly moving it to a more accessible site. Although it is exploring the possibility of grants, it will need help and is making a plea to individuals and businesses to assist in achieving this goal. They are not making pioneer log cabins anymore, and this gem of Union’s past should be preserved. Will you help? To contact Sue Blesi, call 573-739-9201 or email franklincountyhistory@msn. com.

The Union firefighters who provided aid to storm victims in New York met with hundreds of residents in that area whose lives are now changed. There were six local firefighters who were among 80 in the state who were sent to New York to assist with storm recovery efforts. Full-time Union firefighters Capt. Matt Tobben, Joe Straatmann and Alex Szpatoski are members of Missouri Task Force 1 (MO-TF1) were deployed from Oct. 29 through Nov. 5 to provide search and rescue assistance for those affected by the super storm Sandy. Current volunteer Union firefighters Assistant Chief R.B. Brown and Dale Straatmann also were sent as part of the team. Union area resident Kevin Wissmann, with the Saline Valley Fire Protection District and a retired member of the Union Fire Protection District, also is a member of Missouri Task Force 1. Dale Straatmann, who is the father of Joe Straatmann, is a volunteer senior reserve member within the Union district. Szpatoski told The Missourian that the MO-TF1 members were split into squads

who went through neighborhoods in the Long Beach area on Long Island. “We went door to door checking their well-being,” he said. “We were providing information on where to find food and water — and we provided emergency contact information.” “We tried to get them whatever they needed,” Szpatoski added. The squads covered about 31 miles of road and visited about 4,500 homes. The residents were without power. “The floodwater had receded, but there was a lot of sand that was brought in by the storm,” Szpatoski said. “There was debris everywhere and vehicles had been flooded.” The area was primarily residential and was densely populated, he explained. “For about three days we went door to door,” he said. “There were so many people affected by it.” When MO-TF1 members contacted residents, the victims were appreciative of the help. “People were really gracious that we were out there to try and help out,” Szpatoski said. “It was really great to see how excited and thankful they were to get help.” Despite what the residents had gone through, he added, they still were happy to • See Firefighters Page 2U

Discipline Now Pantry Volunteers Ask for Continued Community Support Addressed In Bus Rules By Gregg Jones

Union Missourian Editor

By Meredith Hood

Missourian Staff Writer

Student discipline has been an issue on afternoon school buses according to assistant principal at ClarkVitt Elementary and Union Middle School, Leslie Lause. “Kids think that school’s over and the rules don’t apply to the bus,” she said. At the beginning of this year both schools adopted a simple set of directives as official building rules. The rules combine verbal and nonverbal signals that allow teachers to keep students to remain engaged in moments and environments when distraction is likely. Lause explained that when a teacher says, “Class, class?” the students, respond, “Yes, yes,” after gaining the group’s attention the teacher can then make a gesture. “It’s just getting the kids to use multiple pieces of their brain,” Lause said. To make the bus a natural extension of the building Lause talked with First Student Bus Company Manager Mike Haymen and company spokesperson, Sherry Pope, about training drivers to apply certain classroom expectations to the bus. Pope said driving a regular vehicle is a challenge and the challenges only compound when driving a bus. “It’s very difficult dealing with 70 kids behind you,” she said. Pope and Lause said student safety is of great concern. Bus drivers who drop off students at the middle school in the mornings have reported to Lause that other vehicles don’t always stop when the safety bar is extended and students cross the street. The effective power verbal calls and responses was on display following a school bus accident early last month. Three students were transported to the hospital after a Union bus was struck on westbound Highway 50 and a blown tire came off the wheel Oct. 4. Lause said when district Superintendent Steve Bryant responded to the scene of the accident the kids were overwhelmed and overstimulated. The bus driver was trying to get the students’ attention but wasn’t successful. “Mr. Bryant climbed on the bus after the accident and said ‘Class, class?’ ” said Lause. “With that the students were able to respond and acknowledge his attention. The bus driver was amazed.” Twenty-five bus drivers who drive Union routes attended training in mid-October to learn some of the same cues teachers use to maintain order with stu• See Bus Rules Page 2U

Union Food Pantry volunteers expect to serve more families than ever before — and hope the community will continue to step up with support. According to Jan Brennan, trends indicate that 2,000 families and 5,000 residents will be served in 2012 by the pantry. “The way the trends are going, that is over 200 people more than last year,” she said. In 2011, the pantry served 1,876 families, including 3,167 adults and 1,777 children, for a total of 4,944 people.

This year, through October, the pantry already has served 1,601 families, 2,758 adults, 1,556 children, for a total of 4,314 people. And the busiest months are yet to come, added volunteer Ken Lingle. “This is one of our busiest times,” he said. That is why this Saturday’s Scouting for Food Drive comes at a good time. “Everything the Scouts collect in Union will be donated to the Union Pantry,” Brennan said. The Union Food Pantry, a Christian outreach organization located at 113 W. Locust St., serves the Union and Villa Ridge areas.

Brennan said that the pantry relies heavily on drives, as well as corporate donations and those made by individuals. “The whole community supports us,” she said. “This is one of the main ones (food drives) that we depend on.” Lingle noted that as the need grows, the community steps up to assist in feeding families. “The need is greater, and people do well to support us,” he said. “We get a wide variety of food without much government help.” Since 1994, the number of families who are helped by the Union Food Pantry each year has in• See Pantry Page 2U

Mobile Home Damaged There were no injuries in this mobile home fire Saturday on Beck Meadow Road south of Highway AD after 6 p.m. Firefighters had the fire under control within about 20 minutes. The mobile home still was standing when the fire was extinguished. Union crews responded to the scene, as did fire personnel from Missourian Photo/Keith Domke. St. Clair and Boles.

get the assistance. “There wasn’t a single person who was negative,” Szpatoski said. “They were just really positive we were out there.” MO-TF1 is a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Urban Search and Rescue Task Force based in Boone County.

of Mass Destruction (WMD) Response Team for the state. Team members assembled in Boone County Oct. 29 and were sent to Herndon, Va. The team was then sent to New Jersey and then Flushing, N.Y., before ordered to go to Long Island. MO-TF1 and the Ohio Task Force 1 were assigned as “Rapid Response Force Packages.” The two rescue teams were given the use of two Chinook and six Blackhawk

helicopters. The helicopters were available for any search and rescue missions in the area. MO-TF1 assisted in Joplin rescue efforts in 2011, and for assistance during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Szpatoski said he and other team members are grateful that they could leave work to help the victims. “We want to thank the Union Fire (district) for letting us go,” he said. “They allowed us to miss work to go.”

Lingle. He added that meals such as spaghetti go a long way to feed a family, and sometimes provide more than one meal. Items like chilli beans add protein to the meals and can extend them further. Families needing assistance are invited to call the food pantry at 636-5847050. Food can be dropped off between 2-4 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, or by appointment. Call Lingle at 636-583-4042 to schedule an appointment. There are food pantry donation boxes at many local churches. Contributions of grocery items can also be taken directly to the food

pantry at 113 Locust St., Union. Union Food Pantry has served the Union and Villa Ridge ZIP codes since 1994. It shares with other area food pantries and receives support from the United Way. The facilities are donated, and it uses only unpaid volunteers. Monetary donations are used to purchase perishable items, such as meat. Nearly 100 percent of donations go directly to serve those in need. Local Cub Scout Xavier Plassmeyer took a stack of plastic bags Saturday to be Many volunteers gener- taken to Union area homes.

Many of the everyday activities we take for granted, like going to school, reading a book, watching the sunset, watching television, or going to work, are impossible for millions of people in developing countries. This is because they are in desperate need of eyeglasses

and unable to afford or obtain the basic eye care they need. During the month of November, the Union Lions Club will collect used prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses along with nonprescription reading glasses and sunglasses as part of a unique recycling program. The glasses will be cleaned and prepared for distribution by Lions in these developing countries. The Union Lions Club is asking area residents to look through drawers and closets for old eyeglasses. Then donate the eyeglasses to the Lions Recycle for Sight Program. To donate used glasses (including sunglasses and reading glasses), place them in the specially marked Lions Recycle for Sight boxes at one of six locations: Bank of Franklin County (Krakow), Scenic Regional Library (Union), Union Eye Associates, and United Bank of Union (all three locations). For more information, people may contact Devin Struttmann at 636-5838267.


creased from 611. “Five years ago we were lucky to do 75 families a month,” Brennan said. Now the pantry averages about 160 families per month. “We are proud of the pantry,” said Brennan. “Our support is from the community and dedicated volunteers — nobody knows the amount of work they do to run the pantry.” The pantry is always accepting food items. Some items that are heavily needed at the pantry include dry pasta, canned meat, canned pasta, Hamburger Helper-style box dinners, chilli beans, spaghetti sauce, tuna and cereal. ‘We have never run out of Ramen noodles before, but we did this year,” said

Union Native ‘First Team’ Finisher in Competition Joining the Army a little more than a year ago, one 1st “Ironhorse” Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, soldier has already made a name for herself. Union native, Pfc. Christina Garcia, a combat medic assigned to Company C, 115th Brigade Support Battalion, of the Ironhorse Brigade, was one of 230 medical soldiers to participate in the Expert Field Medical Badge Competition Sept. 29 to Oct. 4. Upon completion of the competition, only 22 competitors remained, Garcia not only being one of the few, but she stood as the sole 1st Cavalry Division “First Team” finisher. “I could not be more proud of her,” said Garcia’s 1st sergeant, Summerville, S.C. ,native, Sgt. 1st Class Kimberly Leonard. “With 234 candidates only 22 passed, only 22 got the badge.” Earning the highly coveted competition is not an easy task Leonard explained. One afternoon the command team entered C Company and asked who wanted to compete for the badge. “After the command team] asked, all of us new medics were just like, ‘I don’t know what it is, but I’ll do it,’ ” said Garcia. Soon after volunteering to compete for the badge they began training, which lasted about two weeks prior to the event. “Every day we were practicing a different task,” Garcia said about their unit training. The morning of Sept. 24, Garcia and 21 other Ironhorse soldiers stood ready to compete. “I wasn’t a primary candidate, I was only an alternate,” Garcia said about her first day. “I wanted to be like, ‘Look, I can do it.’ ” Medics are a naturally competitive group, Leonard said about Garcia’s competitive personality. “They are competing against themselves” Leonard said. “There are so many criteria in a technical and tactical portion; you have to not only be a good medic, but a good soldier.” The first five days of the competition was familiarizing the participants with the standards of the competitions. “The events are a sequential thing,” Leonard said. “You can get a no-go for going steps 1-3-5 instead of 1-2-3-4-5.” The competition included many of the tasks they covered during their unit training: liter carries and putting them on the back of different military vehicles, assembling and disassembling radios, M-4s, M-16s and M-9s, and various medical skills. “I really enjoyed doing the medic lanes,” Garcia said. “I

was actually getting to use the skills I learned in (Advanced Individual Training). It was the one I was most comfortable with and it was fun.” Upon completing the event, Garcia now has a newfound confidence in herself and medical abilities. “This competition gave me a lot of confidence in myself as a medic. I worked really hard for it and it’s something no one can ever take away from me. I literally put blood, sweat and tears into this,” Garcia said. “I feel as though this competition has opened a lot of doors for me.” Garcia isn’t the only one who believes in the number of opportunities this accomplishment has opened for her. “Earning her badge as a (private first class), she has set herself well above her peers,” Leonard said. “She is setting herself more competitive for her career.” When crossing the finish

line of the final event, a 12mile road march, Leonard was standing there waiting for her. “I literally caught her as she crossed the finish line,” Leonard said. “I realized she was the only one from our unit left, I couldn’t have been more proud.” While Garcia is still new to the Army, completing the EFMB was a big motivator for Garcia to excel in the military, but she hasn’t quite decided if she wants to make it a career. “I don’t know what I want to do with the Army,” Garcia said. “It is really kind of quick to tell, I have only been in the Army for a year. So far, I love it, I love the camaraderie. I could definitely see myself making it a career.” Garcia has a slot waiting for her at Air Assault School once her feet have healed. She also hopes to attend flight medic school and become airborne qualified.

The Missourian

As we get closer to Thanksgiving, we begin to think about putting up Christmas trees and other decorations in our homes and in our yards. I enjoy Christmas. I like the decorations, the history, the meaning, the presents and everything else that goes along with the holiday. Even as a little kid I loved to decorate the tree. At the Jones household, putting the tree up was a task that involved the entire family. My father would actually assemble the artificial tree — which was like putting together a massive jigsaw puzzle, a dark green and prickly jigsaw puzzle. The tree we used each year dated back to before trees were even decorated at Christmas. It was an antique that was used well past its expiration date. My mother’s job was to hang the lights. That is a delicate job that should only be left in the hands of an adult. I think my mom took on that task because after my dad put up the tree, he exhausted all of his patience and wouldn’t go through each strand of lights to find which of the 42,000 bulbs didn’t work. Looking back, apparently my job was to make crappy ornaments in school and then hang them on the tree. I understand that children’s art projects aren’t expected to be Monet paintings. But the stuff that I tried to pass off looks worse than something Monet’s dog would have created. I am not artistic, at all. I still get grief from people who make fun of me because

I can’t cut paper in a straight line. Don’t get me wrong, I can be creative. The problem arises when I try to translate that creativity into a real-life thing. In my mind I have made the greatest elementary school ornaments. In reality, they should be hung in the chimney with care, or at the very least on the back side of the tree. But my lack of artistic ability wasn’t so obvious to me at age 7. I actually thought I was great. I wasn’t the only one adding ornaments to the tree. My brother Andy performed the same task including some of his own ornaments — hands down, much better than mine. My other brother and sister also took part in the tree decorating, but to a lesser extent. By the time I was participating, they were in their teens and left the manual labor to the younger children. I have a feeling that they were ashamed at what I tried to pass off as ornaments and kept their distance. The Jones family didn’t really throw too much tinsel around the house during Christmas, and I can’t remember ever decorating the yard. I wonder sometimes how the glitter, tinsel and light traditions ever began. I can’t remember from the King James version the techno music, flashy strobe light birthday rave they threw for Jesus. Maybe the silvery tinsel and the twinkling lights are meant as a distraction — they draw attention away from the crappy ornaments some kids make.

Kirk, 24, who lives on the outskirts of Pacific, was charged with robbery in the first degree and armed criminal action. A $50,000 cash-only bond was set in the case. The holdup occurred at 6:49

p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, at the Dollar General Store, 2200 West Osage St. The manager of the store witnessed the incident in which the suspect allegedly threatened the clerk and demanded money. The manager followed the man outside as she dialed 911. Within seconds seven police cars were on the scene, including the police chief. The crime happened at shift

change so extra officers were at the station. The manager said the robber had gone toward the Cedars Subdivision. Two police cars drove to the Cedars Subdivision where Police Chief Matt Mansell observed a man walking. He was wearing a short-sleeved red polo shirt, which was not appropriate for the cold weather, according to police.

City Hiring Part-Time Patrolmen

The hiring of three part-time police officers was approved by Pacific aldermen at the Nov. 6 board meeting, marking a new strategy for increasing the size of the force. The three officers will each work 30 hours a week, but will not be paid employee benefits. Currently all three work as reserve officers. Aldermen approved the appointment of Kevin Conley, Tony Lindeman and Steven Nagel to the part-time posts. The three have been serving as reserve officers for the department and looking for jobs in law enforcement, Police Chief Matt Mansell said. Three part-time officers will cost the city approximately the same as one officer receiving full benefits, Mansell said. This gives the department three officers for the cost of one, according to Mansell. “For some time I’ve been looking at ways to bring more officers onto the force,” Mansell said. Since the three were reserve officers, the chief said he was well aware

A Pacific Welcome Center could impact the economy by increasing tourism in the city and generate revenue to help sustain the center, according to a report by the mayor’s welcome committee chair. Pauline Masson presented the recommendations of the committee at the Nov. 6 board of aldermen meeting. The 10-minute power

Kirk confessed to the robbery and showed officers where his coat and the money were hidden, police said. All the money was recovered. “It was all buttoned down within minutes,” Mansell said. It was the second armed robbery in the city in a month. The Red Wing Shoe Store, 313 East Osage St., was robbed at gunpoint Oct. 2.

Board Presented Plan For Welcome Center By Pauline Masson

While officers questioned the man, the clerk was brought to the scene and identified the suspect as the robber. He was taken into custody and transported to the police station, where the store manager positively identified him. “We also watched the videotape in the store and officers were able to identify the suspect,” Chief Mansell said.

The committee was formed March 6 to develop a plan to open a combination welcome center, history museum in the former Hoven house, 115 East Osage St. After St. Bridget Church withdrew its offer to buy the Wolf house, which houses

the history museum, officials determined that it was not economically viable for the city to own two buildings and voted to put the Hoven house on the market. There were challenges with using the Hoven house as a home for both a museum and visitors center, Masson said. “The consensus of our committee was that the Red Cedar Inn building was the ideal site for a welcome cen-

Pacific Senior Center Patrons Honor Veterans n At Annual Veterans Day Event

Ways to honor those who serve may have grown each year. But the stories of aging veterans elicit an outpouring of respect and admiration that increases as their numbers decline and their steps slow. On Nov. 11, veterans, families and friends gathered at the Tri-County Senior Center to honor living veterans. In the emotion of the discussion, relatives of patrons who have since died as well as those serving in active duty were added to the list. In a room filled with veterans and relatives, as well as those who had lost vet-

erans or soldiers in combat, Ed Hillhouse coordinated a program that encouraged accolades to honor the deceased. A veteran who gears up each November to keep the memory of World War II alive, Cal Koelling said he was encouraged by his twin brother Alvin to enlist. His brother failed the physical and Cal went to war. Each year he talks about World War II with local students, often becoming the adoptive grandparent of students who need a veteran who is a relative for a history project. Koelling, who was severely wounded in action, gave the invocation, which he ended with this thought. “Some things are worth

dying for, and this country is one of them.” The area’s only Pearl Harbor survivor, Bill Hogue, was a 17-year-old sailor serving on the USS Crew in Pearl Harbor Bay on the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, when the surprise Japanese attack took place. Hogue led the Pledge of Allegiance for the event. Hillhouse, who prefers informal programs to rigid agendas, asked, one table at a time, for each veteran to stand, recite his branch of service and years served. Veterans in the room who stood were John Bradfield, Navy, served in Formosa, 1953-61; Steve Title, Navy, served in the Cuban Crisis;

I Have to Tell You... Pauline Masson, Editor Almost every Monday morning I can look forward to a series of email messages that say the same thing, “Harold Selby has added a new photo to his Facebook page.” Since Harold started running to reduce his cholesterol two years ago he has become the master of the marathon. It was an evolutionary process. When I first noticed the repetitive nature of these emails, he was in the top 10 in his age group then the top two or three in his age group to first in his age group and once, I believe, first overall. As his waistline got smaller and his smile got bigger, Harold also became the master of Facebook, posting one photo, then two or three then sometimes eight or 10. This morning he posted two videos, one of an eagle rising from a tree that sets on the bluff between his house and the Meramec River and soaring out over the fields south of Pacific. His note said: “This is the eagle that visits us. What a show for the veterans.” The second video was a powerboat of some sort on the river, which is incredibly blue from the vantage point of Harold’s blufftop site. I was expecting a marathon video following week-after-week of still-shots showing marathon runners, finish lines and victory banners, in various locations, mostly in Missouri. But the eagle was a good switch. The reason I’m writing about Harold is not to boast about his perfect cholesterol and trim figure, but to remark on his sense of humor, which may be his most effective management tool. Harold is funny. When I see him around the people who work for him, there seems to be a lot of laughter. Harold doesn’t laugh out loud with big guffaws of laughter. In fact sometimes when he is at his funniest, he is absolutely deadpan, displaying not the slightest glimmer of grin. I was reminded of this at the board of aldermen meeting the other night when my buddy Austin Myers, of Brush Creek Sewer District fame, said Harold had disrespected him. Austin also has a unique style of delivery. Both he and Harold are masters at resolving conflicts and orchestrating compromises where others throw up their hands. They just have different styles of approaching the problem. I was actually enjoying Austin’s description of baseball patrons getting parking tickets on residential streets near the PYA ball fields where the signs say “No Ballpark Parking.” Austin thought it was discriminatory and wanted to see the city ordinance that said the people going to the baseball game were expressly forbidden from parking on the street. He couldn’t believe it, he said. He wanted to see the printed word. Where was the ordinance? He couldn’t believe it even more that no one in city hall was able to locate the ordinance. You mean, maybe, there isn’t an ordinance and the city has been writing all these tickets. He was just tossing out one little jibe after another in a very friendly voice. He said when he asked Harold, whom he called Mr. Selby, for the ordinance Mr. Selby said, “It’s going to cost you.” When pressed for how much it might cost, Mr. Selby said. “It’s going to cost you a lot.” Austin thought it was terrible that he should have to pay a lot for a copy of a city ordinance, and, as a matter of fact, he didn’t like Mr. Selby’s attitude. As soon as I heard the comments, I knew that Harold had said it. He has said those same express words to me on more than one occasion. I could even hear the inflection in his voice. “It’s going to cost you.” But, the thing is, he always said it in jest – deadpan as all get out, but in jest. Humor is Harold’s stock in trade. I was stunned that Austin didn’t get it. Austin is master at soft sarcasm, throwing out one-liners that cause the listener to stop and think. He is sooooo intelligent. It occurred to me that he might be putting us on. Maybe he knew Mr. Selby was only kidding and he was just trying to get people to think about what was really going on. If you’re going to tell one group of people that they can’t park where everyone else can park, you better have a law. I happen to agree with Austin on the parking thing, but the mayor said he has been advised that the city can enforce the signs – although he personally would rather police didn’t give out tickets but just leave the ballpark patrons on their honor to refrain from parking there once they read the signs. We’ll have to see how all this works out. But on the thing about Harold being disrespectful, I have to tell you . . . It just isn’t believable. There have been dicey situations where others at city hall showed their anger and elected officials have, from time to time, said things to patrons in a public meeting that I wish they hadn’t said. But I’ve never seen Harold do it. Harold is the dealmaker, the grant finder, the guy who tries to make things work for everyone. But as a technologically challenged computer user, I know where Austin is coming from. This morning I had to download a new flash player to view Harold’s video. In order to do that I had to know my Adobe ID and password and I did not think that was funny. Pauline Masson can be reached at or 314-805-9800.

ter and history museum,” Masson said. “However, our approach to the mayor’s instruction was to develop a business plan that could work in any building.” The projected cost to operate the center with one full time employee is $49,000. The tourism tax generated $78,000 in 2010. One third of that — $24,000— could be used for a welcome center. The committee identified other revenue generating strategies, such as a gift shop, rental conference room and soda machine, that could increase revenue to $48,000 to $50,000. “Our consensus was that the revenue would pretty well cover the cost of operation of the building,” Masson said. The welcome center committee identified more than 100 travel venues within 45 minutes of downtown Pacific. “Our marketing plan is to encourage visitors to use our motels as a base and visit the recreational, cultural, educational and religious sites at our doorsteps,” Masson said. “The welcome center would accumulate travel brochures, maps and calendars from these tourism destination sites and make them available to visitors.” The marketing area was defined in three concentric circles with the city of Pacific at the center. The welcome center would develop city maps, pinpointing tourism sites such as the Civil War Cannon on Blackburn Park and the train watching venue in Pacific Station Plaza, have on hand menus for local restaurants, and a calendar of all city civic events. The second circle would be destinations at our doorstep, such as Shaw Nature Reserve, Purina Farms and the Meramec River. The third circle is destination within 45 minutes from Pacific, such as the wine districts, trails, antiquing sites, wilderness areas and major league sports at the downtown St. Louis riverfront. “The focus would be on keeping our motels full yearround,” Masson said. Mayor Herb Adams said he would like for other organizations, such as the Chamber of Commerce and Pacific Partnership, to see the presentation. “Everything that we’ve done recently has involved partnerships,” Adams said. “I’d like to see if there could be a partnership to operate the welcome center.” In addition to Masson, welcome center committee members are John Behrer, Shaw Nature Reserve; Diane Goode, travel photographer; Jo Schaper, River Hills Traveler assistant editor; Brenda Wiesehan, Meramec Valley History Museum representative; Brian Knight, Chamber of Commerce representative; Alderman Jerry Eversmeyer; and City Engineer Dan Rahn. Adams appointed the committee to develop a plan to open and operate a welcome center. “The welcome center is not dead,” Adams said. “If more people can see the plan that the committee has outlined for a welcome center it’s possible a partnership could be formed for some civic groups to join the city in developing a welcome center.”

Hillhouse read the narrative for the missing man place-setting that stood on a small table near the entrance to the front tables. Hillhouse also recognized Jeannie Guffey and the volunteers at the senior center, saying that he had been in on the fundraising for the Helen Preiss Senior Center from the beginning and was aware of the perseverance it took to secure the building. “The Helen Preiss Senior Center is part of the glue that holds this community together,” Hillhouse said.

City Ponders Future Use of Wolf House

The Missourian

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Page 8U

n Houses Local History Museum

By Pauline Masson Pacific Editor

The city will winterize and shut down the Wolf House, 206 West Union, for the winter giving officials time to determine the future use of the building. The former residence houses the Meramec Valley History Museum, which the city owns and operates. Officials previously agreed to sell the building to St. Bridget Catholic Church for expansion of the parish elementary school and move the museum, along with a new welcome center, into the Hoven house, 115 West Osage. Museum volunteers have packed up the historical items for an impending move. When the sale of the Wolf property fell through and the city found itself with two former residential buildings, officials decided to put the Hoven property on the market and placed a 90-day request for bids on the building. During a presentation on a proposed welcome center, Pauline Masson, committee chair, said it had been the consensus of the committee that a more practical building for a combination welcome center/history museum would be the Red Cedar Inn, which is currently for sale. “We devised the business plan so that it could be put into effect in any building,”

Masson said. Adams said he is hopeful that some sort of partnership could be put together for the development and operation of a welcome center. Previous attempts for the city to buy the Red Cedar, although supported by citizens, have failed. “We’re not going to do anything in the museum building until spring,” Alderman Mike Pigg said, “so it makes sense to close it down.” Alderman Walter Arnette said the city should go ahead and replace the furnace in the building, which would cost approximately $9,000. But Tim Baker, chairman of the city’s tourism commission, asked aldermen to consider buying one building to serve both purposes. “As the chair of the tourism commission I see where the tourism tax money goes and the number of requests there are for funds,” Baker said. “I say, instead of spending $9,000 on a building that you may be selling in a few months, put that money toward a building that will serve the purpose of a welcome center/museum.” Adams said the city is temporarily committed to selling the Hoven property. “We can’t go forward with any plans for a welcome center until the 90 days are up,” Adams said.

Pacific Manufacturing Firm Set to Get Major Order From Subway By Pauline Masson Pacific Editor

The 37,900 international Subway stores are set to order three restaurant items from a Pacific extruded plastics manufacturer, according to Keith Bruns, Subway franchisee. Once the order is placed, Aurora Technologies, Inc. (ATI), 19 Industrial Drive, will manufacture cup holders, straw dispensers and cutting boards for approximately all the stores, Bruns said. Officials of the two firms are working on development of an order for Cambro pans for the stores. If the Cambro pans are included the order could exceed $37 million a year, Bruns said. The order for the other items would be in the area of $15 million.

bring new business to Pacific,” Bruns said. He said ATI will receive the order after Jan. 1. Bruns owns three local Subway franchises in Eureka, Pacific and Union and serves on the board of directors of the North American Association of Subway Franchisees (NAASF). “The order has been approved,” Bruns said. “It’s just a matter of whether the DAI, which owns the international Subway stores, or NAASF will place the order.” Bruns said he had taken business cards of Tom White, owner of Aurora Technologies, to an NAASF meeting and described his recent tour of the plastics manufacturing firm in Pacific. “It turns out he had previously manufactured some of the items for a distributor who resold them to Subway,” Bruns said. “Selling directly to Subway he can save us quite a bit of money.” White founded ATI in 1988 and today the com-

Wherever SUBWAY® restaurants are located, the core menu stays relatively the same — with the exception of some cultural and religious variations. World travelers can expect the same ingredients regardless of what nation they are visiting. “The same is true of fixtures and supplies,” Bruns said. “All 37,000 Subway stores use the same equipment. When a product is approved it is for all the stores.”
