United Way Results Are Not Known

Agreement

Results of the United Way campaign will not be announced until at least next week as companies wrap up their in-house drives and send in their final numbers. “Some companies started their drives a little later this year,” said Paula Obermark, executive director. “We are still waiting on numbers from five of our Top 12 corporate contributors, as well as others.” As of Tuesday, the campaign was at 71 percent of the $1 million goal with $714,659.75 in gifts and pledges. “If we add our projections in, we get to $940,326,” Obermark told The Missourian. “But the campaign is still ongoing.” The drive officially ended Oct. 31, she said, but companies are given an additional two weeks to get their campaign reports into the United Way office. The United Way board will meet next Tuesday and Obermark said a decision could be made at that time to extend the drive or end it and post the final result. “I’m telling people it’s not too late to give and if you have never given in the past or made a donation last year and have not done so yet, there is still time,” she said. “Every

The Washington City Council has approved an agreement with the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission to make improvements at the Lafayette Street railroad crossing at the riverfront. An ordinance authorizing the mayor to enter into the agreement was unanimously approved Monday night. The agreement calls for financing a new pedestrian crossing at the railroad tracks with a federal transportation enhancement grant. “The purpose of this agreement is to grant the use of such transportation enhancement funds to the city,” the agreement states. In September, members of the East-West Gateway Council of Governments board of directors gave final approval to the latest Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) for the St. Louis metropolitan region, including the enhancement grant for Washington. The new TIP outlines projects funded with Federal Highway Administration grants for the years 2013-16. An 80-20 Surface Transportation Program (STVP) enhancement grant was ap• See Crossing Page 2A

Hurricane Teaches Family Tough Life Lessons By Karen Butterfield Missourian Staff Writer

Hurricane Sandy was not a surprise. Tricia Charbonneau, formerly of Washington and now living in New Jersey, her husband Mark, and two children Leyla, 6, and Luke, 3, said they were prepared for the storm that hit the northeastern coast Monday, Oct. 29. What they were not prepared for, however, is the possibility of going without power for a month, which is now a more of a probability than a possibility, and the gas outages occurring

throughout the state. In fact, more than 582,000 homes and businesses in New Jersey still did not have electricity eight days after the hurricane swept through the coast. Mark Charbonneau, who grew up in New Jersey, said this is the worse storm New Jersey has seen. “The Jersey shore is completely devastated,” he said. The family lives in the Clinton Township, a rural area similar to rural areas in Franklin County. “It’s definitely challenging having two small children with

no heat or running water,” Tricia Charbonneau said, adding that for the first five days, neighbors who had generators invited them over for dinner and hot showers. “It’s kind of a support system,” Mark Charbonneau added. The couple owns New Jersey Provision Company, a wholesale food business that provides food to restaurants. Mark Charbonneau said customers have been calling saying their businesses are gone. “It’s hard to say we have it rough when people’s entire live-

lihoods are lost,” he said. Post Hurricane Sandy, Halloween was canceled, and school classes were canceled through Nov. 6. Many schools still have not reopened. Preparation They were not evacuated from their home, and began preparing for the storm about a week in advance. They made sure they had the ability to cook, filled two propane tanks, picked up bottled water to drink and filled bathtubs with water. They knew if power was out, the well, which runs on electric-

ity, would not work. They stockpiled canned goods, flashlights, batteries, candles and extra blankets. “The weather is cold which is very hard for sleeping, but is keeping perishables fresh,” Mark Charbonneau said. One friend stood in line for four hours, waiting for a truck to deliver generators. That friend, who ended up not losing power, loaned the generator to the Charbonneau family. “We’re thankful that by day five, we had a generator for water and heat,” Tricia said, noting • See Family Page 2A

Judge Denies All Motions in Weinhaus Case By Ed Pruneau

Missourian Managing Editor

A Franklin County associate circuit judge has denied three motions filed in the case of Jeffrey Weinhaus, the man who was wounded in an armed confrontation with Missouri State Highway Patrol investigators in September. Judge Dave Hoven heard arguments last Thursday on a defense motion to reduce bond for Weinhaus from $50,000 cash to $7,500. The prosecution meanwhile filed motions to increase the bond to $100,000 on an amended criminal warrant and to order a psychiatric exam for the suspect. Hoven took the motions under advisement until it could be determined that Weinhaus was fit for confinement. A doctor examined the man later Thursday and ruled that he was fit to be held in the county jail. On Friday, Hoven denied all three motions. The judge then ordered the case to be continued until 9 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 29. Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke said Tuesday afternoon that Weinhaus still was in custody. Weinhaus was arrested last Thursday after he appeared in Hoven’s court with his attorney and request• See Weinhaus Page 2A

donation, no matter how small or large, is critical and makes a difference.” Becky Buhr, who is cochairing the campaign, said whatever the final result she feels the drive has been successful, bringing in more than last year which will go a long way to help the agencies and programs served by the United Way. Obermark said there are many positives with the 2012 campaign and several companies have gone “above and beyond for us. “As an example, Melton Machine, which was our second largest contributor last year, just blew it out of the water for us with a 20 percent increase. This is just phenomenal — and this is from a company with just 100 employees,” she said. “The Bank of Franklin County also reported a 30 percent increase, this is huge.” Despite those successes, Obermark said other corporate gifts have been down and some special events lagged behind from last year. While the campaign is winding down it’s not too late to make a donation, she stressed. “We know the need is great

and the ongoing recession has impacted many people and families,” she said. “Due to increased needs from our agencies over the last four years, we have dipped into our reserves, but have withdrawn the maximum we can and will not be able to do that again this year,” she said. “This means that agencies funded last year out of those reserves will not be funded at the same level this year.” Obermark encourages those who have not given to mail in donations to P.O. Box 3, Washington, MO 63090, or go online to www. franklincountyuw.org to make a donation. Agency funding decisions will not be made until Jan. 8 after all donations and pledges have been received. This past year, the United Way helped over 70,000 people receive $750,000 in health and human services. “These services strengthen families, nurture and protect children, assist the elderly and disabled, and provide emergency assistance to those in need,” Obermark said. “Please remember that helping others helps us all build better communities — healthier residents, safer Visitors to the art walk Friday, Nov. 2, discussed art at neighborhoods, and stronger the Missouri Photojournalism Hall of Fame.

ed the bond reduction. Prior to Thursday, Weinhaus had been in the hospital and at his brother’s home in Jefferson County recovering from gunshot wounds he sustained in the Sept. 11 encounter with the two troopers. At that time, the troopers were attempting to serve an arrest warrant charging Weinhaus with possession of a controlled substance (morphine) and tampering with a judicial officer, both felonies, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Prosecuting Attorney Bob Parks filed an amended warrant Thursday charging Weinhaus with five additional felony counts including two counts each of attempted assault on a law enforcement officer and armed criminal action and one felony count of resisting arrest. The investigators allege that they shot Weinhaus when he refused to comply with them and began drawing a handgun. The Investigation Investigators with the highway patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control went to serve a search warrant Aug. 22 for the seizure of computers belonging to Weinhaus based on alleged threats directed at law enforcement and judicial officials in Crawford County. Weinhaus broadcast those video blogs from his home off Highway K, south of St. Clair. When Weinhaus opened

the door, the troopers smelled marijuana smoke coming from the house. 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, according to Parks. Weinhaus, who has described himself as a born-again Christian and both a political activist and a political prisoner, has been provoking politicians, judges and law enforcement officials in several eastern Missouri counties for years. In a video post Sept. 9, he threatened to “occupy the courthouse” on Sept. 14 or Sept. 17, but did not specify which courthouse. That post led the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office to increase security measures at the courthouse there, and officials in Crawford County took extra security measures as well. Weinhaus has denied that he made any direct threats against anyone and claims that when he got out of his car Sept. 11 he did not attempt to draw his gun but raised his hands over his head and was shot by the troopers.

that the generator would provide electricity for the well or for heat, but not both at the same time. The couple had an electrician properly hook up the generator, which will become a permanent fixture at the Charbonneau home. The problem is that the generator uses gas, which is a highly sought after commodity in the state of New Jersey. “There would be a threehour wait at the gas station,” Tricia said. “Then the gas station would run out of gas.” To bypass the shortage, the Charbonneaus have been driving to Pennsylvania, about 35 minutes away, to get gas. The state also has implemented a gas rationing system using license plate numbers. The last number or letter of the license plate determines what day the owners can get gas. Letters A to M are considered even and N to Z are considered odd. Even plates can only get gas on even numbered days, and vice versa. Tricia said the rationing has provided some relief at the pumps. “Everyone is conserving gas as much as possible. No one wants to waste it,” Tricia said. “There’s a high need for gas and it’s been hard to find.” Rather than a social media hangout, Facebook has become a necessary news source. Tricia said the only updates they can get about the storm are through Facebook. People post which gas stations have gas, where there are fewer lines, as well as places where people can get relief. Still Without Power The Charbonneaus have been told their power may be restored by Nov. 12. “The power companies are doing the best they can,” Tricia said. “There were just too many people hit with the storm at the same time. This is something we’ve never had to deal with.” Hurricane Sandy is the third storm in one year that has caused a power loss for the Charbonneau family. The first, a snowstorm in October 2011, left them without power for six days. The second, a rainstorm in July 2012, left them powerless for two days. “Our power problem is not a quick fix,” Tricia said, noting the rural location of their home. First, a forestry division has to clear downed trees so the power companies can even get to the transformers. “It’s a tangled mess,” she said. Lessons Learned The Charbonneaus said

they will definitely make sure to purchase a generator to keep at their home. The most important lesson, though, she said, is to take advice from local and state government officials and the office of emergency management. “Take warnings seriously. Heed the warnings to ensure the safety of your family,” Tricia said. Now, the family will continue to deal with the aftereffect of the hurricane while preparing for a major snowstorm. The brunt of the storm is expected to hit Wednesday evening, further damaging the coastal areas with flooding and hindering power restoration. Disaster resources, relief services and ways to help are available at NJ.com. Staying Positive Despite their circumstances, the Charbonneaus have been able to stay positive. “While it seems like there may be a lot of negatives, this certainly has given us the opportunity to teach our kids compassion for those less fortunate. We know those in the coastal areas are suffering far worse than us,” Tricia said. The family packed up clothes, books and other donations for those in need. “We’re also appreciating the gift of each other,” she said. Tricia pointed out that the usual distractions of TV, iPads or the Internet are no longer distractions. “We’re back to playing board games, and Legos and having campouts with flashlights for bedtime stories,” she said. “It has definitely been a good reminder of what really matters most.” The Charbonneaus said their faith also has helped propel them through the past several days and that their children show appreciation even for small blessings — like having a hot meal for dinner. “We know that ‘this too shall pass,’ ” she said. Tricia is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Halmich. She is a graduate of St. Francis Borgia Regional High School and Missouri State University.

City Seeking Bids For Enhancements Along Highway 100 By Ed Pruneau

Missourian Managing Editor

Contractors wanting to bid on the city’s Highway 100 beautification project have until Monday, Nov. 26, to submit proposals. The city began advertising the project last week. Sealed bids will be accepted until 2 p.m. Nov. 26 at the office of City Clerk Mary Trentmann. Specifications and bid documents may be obtained at the city engineer’s office at city hall upon payment of a $50 fee. The project includes adding median landscaping along certain sections of Highway 100 between Highway 47 and East Fifth Street/South Point Road as well as additional signage and bike path markings. Meanwhile, there has been a slight change in the project. Four trees that were proposed to be planted in the median just east of A. Roy Drive have been removed from the plan. Judy Wagner, MoDOT area engineer, said the decision to remove the trees was due to the fact that when they mature they would block existing billboards in the area. During their meeting Monday night, city council council members approved another agreement with MoDOT on wayfinding signage that will be installed along the sections where enhancements will be developed. City Engineer Dan Boyce said the engineering staff worked closely with the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce on the wording for the wayfinding signs. “They will match the existing signage” in other parts of the city, Mayor Sandy Lucy said. The signs will direct people to various features, including downtown and shopping areas, as well as alert motorists to biking lanes along the route, according to exhibits that are part of the agreement. Council members unanimously passed an ordinance authorizing the mayor to sign the agreement. Last year, the city was awarded a $604,823 federal enhancement grant for the project. The city’s match is $151,206 in

The Franklin County Commission will allow comments from the public at its regular meetings with the exception of those related to the county municipal court and any pending litigation against the county. Presiding Commissioner John Griesheimer announced the policy clarification at the start of Tuesday’s regular meeting after he apologized to Ron Keeven for incorrectly identifying him last week as one of the plaintiffs in a recent lawsuit against the county challenging its new municipal court. “I’ve been advised by legal counsel and law enforcement to change direction in the way we handle public comments,” Griesheimer said. “We will open up comments on agenda items, but there will be no comments on anything related to the lawsuit or the municipal court.” The commission has changed its policy on allowing comments from citizens several times over the past year in the wake of several lawsuits and stepped up

Sheriff Asks For Items to Be Returned

Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke is asking residents who find jewelry, electronic equipment, or other items along Old Highway 100 to contact his office. Toelke said the suspect in a recent string of burglaries told authorities that he could not trade some jewelry and electronics for heroin. He dumped those items along Old Highway 100 in the area of Ming Estates. Deputies and residents have located some of the stolen items along the road. Toelke said items in that area are more than likely stolen from these burglaries.

local funds. The grant pays for 80 percent of the project cost, including the engineering and design work. The enhancements were designed by the consulting firm of Crawford, Murphy and Tilly Inc. Last month, the city approved a supple-

mental agreement with MoDOT stating that the city will be solely responsible for maintaining the improvements, including walkways and bike trails, irrigation and drainage systems, trimming of shrubs, mowing and trimming between shrubs, “and other plantings that are part of the improvement.” The plan is to review bids in December and award a contract in January 2013, followed by construction starting next spring. Plantings for the new landscaped median strips will be done in the fall of 2013 to give the plants the best chance to thrive, city officials have said. The entire project, including the alternate areas, will be included in the bid package and the final design selected based on the cost. The city proposes to include irrigation systems for the planting areas. The areas where medians with plantings are proposed include: • Far West — from a point west of the JCPenney store for about 750 feet to Washington Heights Drive; • West — from a point east of Washington Heights Drive for less than 300 feet to Camp Street; • East — from a point east of the WalMart SuperCenter entrance for about 460 feet; • Option 1 — a 700-foot extension of the east area to near International Avenue/ Rabbit Trail Drive; and • Option 2 — from a point east of International/Rabbit Trail for about 1,080 feet to west of Brookview Avenue and the entrance to Phoenix Center II. Preliminary plans call for most of the landscaped medians to be planted with native wildflowers and grasses that can grow from 1.5 to 3 feet tall. There also are areas where 3- to 5-foot-tall shrubs will be planted.

No perishable, frozen or glass items will be accepted.

comments until it devised a policy which it said would mirror that of school boards. Later that month, the commission adopted a detailed policy that allowed members of the public to comment on commission orders or resolutions to be acted on during that meeting. The policy provided that members of the public also could request items be placed on an agenda and outlined a procedure for that process. Three weeks later, the commission suspended the policy after one of the regular commission critics complained that the commission had violated the policy. Last week Griesheimer accused the individuals who filed a lawsuit against the commission challenging its new municipal court of being “vindictive.” He mentioned Keeven, a regular critic and former candidate for the commission, as being one of those behind the suit. Keeven is not listed as a plaintiff in that case. “I do apologize to Ron for that,” Griesheimer said in opening Tuesday’s meeting. There has been increased security at recent commission meetings.

Schneider: Stage, Event Center at Fairgrounds Major Accomplishment By Susan Miller

Missourian Staff Writer

One of the biggest accomplishments this past year for the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce was construction of a concert stage and event center at the fairgrounds. “We worked hand in hand with the city, the park board, Fair Board and contractors, to bring the future to our community,” said Joe Schneider, outgoing Chamber board chair. “I cannot think of any other community that could have pulled this off,” he said. Schneider gave a special salute to all of the sponsors who have pledged or donated to the project during the Chamber’s breakfast business meeting, held last Thursday at the Elks Hall. The facility has been on the Chamber’s “wish list” for at least 20 years, Schneider said. Pledges and gifts for the concert and event center total $301,000 to date, he said, and fundraising efforts are ongoing. Pledges can be paid out over five years. Total cost for the project was approximately $750,000. “The city covered the en-

tire cost up front and we will pay them as promised,” Schneider said. The Chamber also received “enormous contributions” from Gary Terschluse and Ron Unnerstall of Washington Engineering and Architecture, who developed the plans and coordinated the construction at no cost. “That is huge, folks,” Schneider told Chamber members. Local contractors also “sharpened their pens” when bidding, he said, to make the project work. “I thank each and everyone of you for your foresight, commitment and dedication,” said Schneider, who also read off the names of companies and individuals who have donated or pledged to the projects. Those donors include: Bank of Washington, Ameren Missouri, Lions Club, Rotary Club, Pepsi of New Haven; Mercy Hospital and Clinic, Grey Eagle Distributing, Edward Jones Advisors, CG Power Systems, Citizens Bank; Deppe Farms, Heritage Bank, Jaycees, Optimist Club, Wiemann & Pues, Carpenters Council; Four Rivers Area Young Farmers, Parmentier Auto Body, Quality Coach, Walt Meyer and Chamber. The new facility features a 5,000-square-foot reinforced concrete main stage, a 1,200-square-foot highceiling storage area, an 800-square-foot recreation room, a 400-square-foot office area, restrooms, loading docks and driveways and paved parking for 15 to 20 vehicles.

In addition to being used during the Fair, the multi-use facility is available throughout the year for park department or school programs and other events. Chamber officials said it provides a low-cost rental space for recreational purposes, more storage area for the parks department, a safe venue for large, main stage events and more parking around Lions Lake.

The Franklin County Sheriff ’s Office said the mother of 2-month-old Ava Declue was checking on her child shortly before 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, and found the baby unresponsive. Sheriff ’s deputies responded about 4:25 a.m. to the woman’s home at 1005 New Street which is outside the Sullivan city limits. Franklin County Communications personnel instructed the mother on performing CPR on the baby which was continued by ambulance personnel when they arrived at the scene. The child did not recover and was pronounced dead at Missouri Baptist Hospital in Sullivan, the sheriff ’s office said. The cause of death is not known at this time, Sheriff Gary Toelke said later Tuesday. Toelke said Tuesday afternoon that his department had not received any report on the autopsy.

Community College Association Honors ECC Employee The Missouri Community College Association recently honored a longtime East Central College employee for her service to ECC and to the mission of community colleges throughout the state. Ina “Cookie” Hays received the 2012 Senior Service award at the MCCA fall convention in Kansas City Oct. 31. Hays has been a part of East Central College for more than four decades. She enrolled at what was then East Central Junior College in the fall of 1971. Hays completed her Associate of Applied Science degree in summer 1973, and about that same time she was hired as secretary in the media services department. She was quickly promoted and ultimately filled positions as an administrative secretary, an academic adviser, and the director of counseling and career services. For the past 11 years she has been ECC’s chief officer of student affairs. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business management from Maryville University in 1994. Six years later she completed her Master of Education in counseling at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. “Working in so many roles over the years has given Cookie the experience to handle, with compassion, any situation that might arise at any level, from student to employee,” Karen Wieda, ECC registrar, said. “She listens, makes suggestions, is fair in her decisions, and supports her staff as well as the students. She is a servant leader with a kind, caring heart.” Wieda also noted Hays always acknowledges there

Ina “Cookie” Hays are multiple sides to any issue and has an incredible sense of empathy. Colleagues note Hays has played a significant role in the college’s continued success. “When people talk about the special people in the ECC family, (Cookie) is one of them. She truly embodies ECC’s mission through serving others and supporting a sense of community on campus,” said Tammy Weinhold, ECC’s director of advising and counseling. Additionally ECC has factored well into the lives of members of the Hays family. Hay’s husband Don worked at East Central for 26 years and their two children are ECC graduates.

Moving Wall Request Approved

Assembly at WHS Set for Friday

Washington City Council approved Monday night a request by a local group to work toward bringing a Vietnam Moving Wall memorial to Washington. The moving wall stands 6 feet in height at the center and gradually tapers to 4-foot panels at each end. Each of the two walls that make up one structure is 126.2 feet long, for a total of 252.4 feet — slightly less than the length of a football field. There are 58,228 names on the wall, the same as the wall in Washington, D.C. A total of

Washington High School and the Washington Chapter of the National Honor Society will host area veterans Friday, Nov. 9, in the Blue Jay Gym at WHS beginning with a reception at 8 a.m. and an assembly at 8:30 a.m. The guest speaker will be WHS alumni and retired faculty member Wayne Dothage. To RSVP, people may call Patty or Mary, 636231-2200.

22 Franklin County Vietnam veterans were killed in the war. Local veteran advocates Terry Sullentrup and Tim Buddemeyer made a presentation on the wall to the park board administrations/operations committee at the end of September. Sullentrup noted that the project is not tied to the Washington VFW and that he hopes many local organizations will get involved. The goal is for the display to be in Washington about five days in late October or early November 2013. An applica-

tion to reserve the wall will need to be submitted by the end of the year. The suggested location to set up the wall is on the midway at the fairgrounds. Sullentrup said there are several advantages to the fairgrounds, including that it is easily accessible and that the area is already 50 percent blocked off by fences. Guides would have to be constructed to help people through the display. If a date or funding cannot be secured, the timeframe to have the display would move into the spring or fall of 2014.

A countywide coat drive — Warners’ WarmUp — is under way. Now in its third year in Franklin County, the drive runs through Nov. 14. Area businesses and schools are serving as collection sites for the drive. People are encouraged to donate new or gently used winter coats, according to Keith Whittemore, local organizer. The coat drive is a project of retired two-time NFL MVP and Super Bowl Rams quarterback Kurt Warner and his wife Brenda. Since its inception 12 years ago in the St. Louis area, the drive has distributed over 150,000 coats. Here is the complete list of coat drive locations. Public Drop-Off Locations — Missourian downtown office, KLPW, Applebee’s, The Creek Grill & Sports Bar, Elks Lodge, Schnucks, Presbyterian Church, RE/MAX Gold First, The Art Center, Walgreens and Look After Hair Company, all in Washington; Johnny’s Restaurant and Zion UCC, Purschke Oil & Tire Company and Walgreens, all in Union; Bethany UCC and St. John’s UCC, both in Berger.

Woman Hurt in One-Car Crash The driver of this 1996 Saturn sustained moderate injuries Sunday, Nov. 4, when she lost control on Jones Lane, south of Highway 100. The Missouri Highway Patrol said Carolyn F. Kemper, 66, Washington, was taken by Washington Ambulance to Mercy Hospital Washington following the 2:20 p.m. crash.

Patrol Arrests Two for DWI Missouri Highway Patrol troopers arrested two people for drunk driving and another 13 on felony drug violations during a recent enforcement operation in Franklin County. “Operation ARREST” (Alcohol Related Response Enforcement Strike Team) was staged in the county from 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, through 3 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 28. This eight-hour project was conducted by six troopers who focused their enforce-

Silent Film Screening at ECC

East Central College pays tribute to the golden age of silent film Friday night, Nov. 9, with a free showing of the 1929 cinema classic “Speedy.” Live accompaniment will be provided by master pianist Andrew Peters. Lisa Pavia-Higel, communications instructor and coordinator of the Words and Motion speaker and film series, noted the screening is appropriate for families and is a historically accurate cultural experience. “Mr. Peters improvises and plays along much like they did in classic cinema,” Pavia-Higel said. “It’s difficult to see films presented in this manner anywhere but at events such as

H

this.” The screening will take place in the John Edson Anglin Performing Arts Center on the ECC campus in Union at 7 p.m. “Speedy” stars renowned silent film comedian Harold Lloyd as Harold “Speedy” Swift and follows his attempts to save New York City’s last horse-drawn trolley bus, which was being threatened by newer forms of transportation. “Speedy has an unfortunate fanatical love of baseball that leads him to consistently lose various jobs, leaving him perpetually unemployed,” PaviaHigel said. Babe Ruth even has a cameo role as himself — ­ the

baseball legend becomes a passenger in a cab operated by Speedy. Their wild ride ends at the old Yankee Stadium. Historically interesting sites including Coney Island’s Luna Park, Columbus Circle and Wall Street as they were in the late ‘20s serve as the film’s backdrop. The film’s greatest highlight is a spectacular trolley crash at the Brooklyn Bridge. Though not planned, the accident scene was left in the film. Lloyd was a top box-office draw, a bigger moneymaker than Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, at the time of this picture’s release. He made over 200 shorts for studios such as Universal and Keystone.

ment efforts on identifying hazardous motor vehicle operations. The purpose of the operation was to increase the public’s awareness of the hazards of operating a motor vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. Troopers stopped a total of 47 vehicles during the enforcement crackdown. In addition to the DWI and drug arrests, officers also issued summonses for the following violations: speeding, two; seat belts, seven; follow-

ing too close, three; and nonmoving violations, nine. Officers also issued 43 warnings during the operation. “Alcohol continues to be responsible for approximately 30 percent of all fatal crashes on Missouri highways. Operation ARREST will assist in reducing the number of intoxicated drivers, traffic crashes, and fatalities that occur on our roadways,” said Capt. Ronald S. Johnson, Troop C commanding officer.

Property Tax Charges Up, Collector Says New Software Is Partially Responsible Franklin County experienced an increase in assessed valuations the past year. The county clerk’s office reported $1,356,758,962 in real estate and $290,517,890 in personal property valuations for 2012 Those valuations are determined by the county assessor’s office. The county collector’s office recently mailed out tax bills, based on those assessed valuations and tax rates set by boards and commissions around the county in September. The county saw a 0.83 percent decrease in assessed valuations from 2010 to 2011, but this year increased 1.26 percent, bringing the total valuations to $1,850,904,474, roughly $7.7 million higher than they were two years ago and almost $23 million higher than last year. Collector Linda Emmons said her office has received a number of phone calls from taxpayers angry about their bills caused by the substantial valuation increase. Emmons said the new Vanguard software system, previously used for real estate in the assessor’s office and expanded to personal property and the collector’s office earlier this year, likely resulted in some of the increases. The software uses different formulas to assess valuations. Emmons said one taxpayer saw a $13,000 increase in valuation for his pickup truck from last year. “We’re seeing what appears to be increases in the value of trucks, farm equipment, livestock and trailers,” she said. Emmons said those valuations are not determined by her office, however, and her staff has been busy fielding calls that then have to be transferred to the assessor’s office. The $1.85 billion in valuations resulted in $105,106,070.91 in tax charges from the collector’s office. Following a $297,288.50 credit applied to Scenic Regional Library District taxpayers following a class action lawsuit ruled on earlier this year, the total to be collected is $104,808,782.41 Tax Charges The following are the real estate, personal property and railroad and utility taxes levied by each taxing entity in Franklin County this year: State tax, $408,161.77 in real estate, $89,115.79 in personal property, $61,088.31 in railroad and utility; County general revenue tax, $1,779,569.98 in real estate, $388,476.59 in personal property, $266,344.92 in railroad and utility; County road and bridge tax, $2,702,005.08 in real estate, $589,849.51 in personal property and $404.404.47 in railroad and utility; Developmental services, $1,277,536.75 in real estate, $278,880.56 in personal property and $191,206.32 in railroad and utility; Franklin County library tax (after tax credit), $639,751.24 in real estate, $202,158.88 in personal property and $122,172.39 in railroad and utility; Washington library, $121,709.56 in real estate, $23,431.73 in personal property and $5,115.24 in railroad and utility; Sullivan library, $67,416.59 in real estate and $788.73 in railroad and utility; St. Louis Community College, $524,447.27 in real estate, $130,513.15 in personal property and $61,706.44 in railroad and utility; East Central College, $4,748,533.50 in real estate, $1,004,293.09 in personal property and $725,149.48 in railroad and utility; Hermann Hospital, $54,013.92 in real estate, $10,783.44 in personal property and $24,845.82 in railroad and utility; School Districts Franklin County R-2, $638,626.83 in real estate

Washington Improves Bloom Rating in National Contest By Karen Butterfield Missourian Staff Writer

The city of Washington was just two percentage points shy of being rated a “five bloom community” in America in Bloom, a national competition. Results were announced at the annual symposium in Fayetteville, Ark., at the end of September, however, the judges’ comments recently were received. In 2011, the city’s first year in the competition, Washington received a three bloom rating. “To find out we were only two percentage points from a five bloom rating in just two years (of participation) — that’s amazing,” Washington Mayor Sandy Lucy said. “That says a lot about our leadership.” A total of 27 communities nationwide, split up by population, competed. Washington’s rivals included Arroyo Grande and Artesia, both in California; Madisonville, Ky.; and Holliston, Mass. America in Bloom judges visited Washington this past July. Each city was judged on six criteria, including floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, environmental efforts, heritage preservation and overall impression. Categories were judged across three sectors — mu-

Variety Show This Saturday At VFW Hall A benefit variety show will be held Saturday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. at the Washington VFW Hall. The event will feature music from the Matson family singers and Karla Matson from Branson, as well as a bake sale, silent auction and refreshments. A dance will follow, from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. Advance tickets are available by calling Karla Matson, 417-365-4060, or emailing karla@tonesoftheheart. com.

nicipal, residential and commercial. Communities could earn up to 175 points in five of six categories and a total of 125 points in the overall impressions category. Scores Washington fared as follows: floral displays, 147.50; landscaped areas, 147; urban forestry, 139.50, environmental efforts, 129; heritage preservation 160; and overall impression 107. In all, Washington earned an 83 percent. To be named a five-bloom community, communities need at least an 85 percent. Washington received a total of 830 out of 1,000 points. The judges were Evelyn Alemanni and Barbara Vincentsen. In the comments, the judges noted that Missouri was experiencing a drought, with rainfall approximately 12 inches below normal during the judges’ visit. Judges noted that the drought was taken into consideration for scoring. Compliments Judges complimented Washington’s America in Bloom team and the FFA program at Washington High School, as well as the master gardeners and Hillermann Nursery & Florist for their participation in the program. Judges offered many suggestions on how to improve scores, including capitalizing on the city’s flower, the black-eyed Susan, which was voted on in July. Darren Dunkle, parks director, also earned a “gold star” from the judges. “Washington is blessed with the addition of Director of Parks and Recreations, Darren Dunkle,” the report said. “He deserves a gold star for the comprehensive maintenance plan he developed for all of the parks. His forward thinking and genuine love for parks is going to result in great things for Washington.” Compliments also were given to many area residents for their personal gardens, as well as various businesses. Additionally, judges took note of Washington’s bike

trail, water meter project, library and recycling program. Judges said Washington “shines in the area of heritage preservation.” They recognized the Great American Main Street Award from the Main Street Program. Washington received a special mention for historic preservation and for the parks maintenance plan. Lucy said the results were “incredible,” especially considering that the judging was redesigned this year, making it more difficult to receive a higher bloom rating. Despite that, Washington still moved from a threebloom rating to a four-bloom rating. Lucy said that when judges’ scores were received last year, the committee paid attention and implemented many of the judges’ suggestions. “Washington has a tremendous amount of pride for (its) community,” Lucy said. “The America in Bloom concept is another avenue to display our pride.” Sally Bocklage, Washington in Bloom chairperson, said earning the final bloom will be a goal for next year. “We’ll work hard to achieve that,” she said. “Of course, that will require maintaining all the points we earned this year and add additional ones as further improvements are made.” Bocklage said she appreciates the guidelines the program offers, as well as the opportunity to work firsthand with the national judges, local groups, city employees and business owners.

Teen Charged in Business Burglary A Washington teen who admitted to breaking into a business here last month is charged in a Franklin County felony warrant. Police detectives said they plan to seek additional charges against the suspect, Tyler J. Stallmann, 19, in at least one other business burglary. They also are looking to question another suspect in burglaries that occurred over the past several weeks. Stallmann, meanwhile, is charged with one count of second-degree burglary and one count of stealing, both felonies, in the warrant. A

Film on Joplin Newspaper’s Coverage of Tornado to Be Shown “Deadline in Disaster,” a 59-minute documentary film about The Joplin Globe newspaper staff and its news coverage in the aftermath of the devastating May 22, 2011, Joplin tornado, will be shown Thursday, Nov. 15, during the St. Louis International Film Festival. The screening will be 6:30 p.m. at the Plaza Frontenac Cinema, Lindbergh Boulevard and Clayton Road. “Deadline in Disaster,” produced by the Missouri Press Association, details through the eyes and voices of Joplin Globe reporters and staff members the days, weeks and months following the tragedy. Joplin, changed forever on May 22, 2011. An EF-5

tornado ripped apart the southwest Missouri town; 161 people died. Thousands of homes and businesses, including a hospital were destroyed. Ten schools crumbled under the grinding force of the twister that traveled 13 miles on the ground, at times a slow crawl, nearly a mile wide. High school graduation ceremonies had just ended when The Joplin Globe turned its reporting coverage to the horror of the day that would define its community as one of strength and resolve in the weeks to follow. Despite one-third of the newspaper staff losing their homes and the death of their page designer, The Joplin Globe rolled the presses

on the night of the storm, just one hour late. Reporters made it to the newsroom not knowing if their friends, family members and colleagues survived. Nearly all of the carriers showed up to deliver the newspaper in the early morning hours. In the tornado aftermath, The Globe offered its readers a chance to mourn their community and learn how it was to rebuild. In the film, reporters examine their role as community watchdogs and residents see their newspaper as a vital source for local news and moving forward. The Missourian is the only newspaper in this area that gives you complete information on high school sports.

$10,000 cash-only bond was set in his case. Stallmann is charged with the recent burglary at John G’s Bier Deck in which a safe containing money and other items were stolen. The break-in was reported Oct. 21, according to police. Also taken in that burglary were several bottles of wine, a case of beer and several cigars, police said.

Trenary Building Features Are Customer Friendly The new Jim Trenary facility in Union features an additional 6,000 square feet than in the previous building, but most of the improvements are geared toward customers, according to General Manager Mike Davis. He said the new drive-in service bay is screened from the noise and smell of the shop, and the parts department is secluded from the mechanics area. Davis added that upgrades to the service department were major goal when the new 21,000-square-foot facility was built, including a car wash. “The best features we have are for the customers,” he said. “We did a great job out of the other building, but we hope to improve sales and service out of the new facility. The building features an “open air” show room. The sales area is not cluttered and there are no salesperson offices. “The other building was 32 years old,” said Davis. “It was dated and not customer friendly.” According to Davis, the Trenary building was purchased from Bud Anderson in

2003. “We had every intention of building a brand new facility to improve the image of the city of Union,” said Davis. The construction project was a union job and included local crews. It was financed through the Bank of Sullivan. “We used as many local contractors as possible,” Davis said. “Our goal was to use as many local people as possible.” He added that inventory has grown on the new lot from about 80 new vehicles to 230 new vehicles. There also are more used cars on the lot. The new lot is blacktopped, and there are more parking spaces than at the previous building. “We are a small town dealer with a big city inventory,” he said. The new building is located at 1001 N. Highway 47. “For the customers everything has improved,” said Davis. “It makes the experience more enjoyable.” Plans calls for a new Fricks Market building to be located where the previous Trenary was located.

Ameren Customers to Pay Lower Natural Gas Rates Ameren Missouri residential and business customers will pay lower rates for natural gas compared to last winter under a new Purchased Gas Adjustment (PGA). The lower rates, approved by the Missouri Public Service Commission (MPSC), are the result of lower wholesale costs. The new PGA became effective Nov. 1 for Ameren Missouri’s 127,000 gas customers. This season, Ameren Missouri customers in Columbia, Jefferson City, Mexico, Wentzville, Cape Girardeau and Marble Hill are expected to pay an average of $0.67 per one hundred cubic feet (Ccf) of natural gas, which includes the cost of interstate transportation, leased storage, and the natural gas commodity. During the 2011-12 heating season, those customers paid an average of $0.75 per Ccf. Similarly, customers in the Rolla service area are expected to pay an average of $0.83 per Ccf, which is down from last season’s average of $0.89 per Ccf.

sels, adding that representatives of the Chamber, city, ECC, Washington School District and St. Francis Borgia Regional High School will all be there. Wessels said the expo also will be an opportunity for companies to distribute job applications and accept resumes. He said the idea for it grew out of the schoolbusiness partnership facili-

Monthly bills are based on the actual amount of natural gas used by a customer. The PGA reflects the wholesale cost of natural gas, plus the cost of transporting gas to the company’s system. The cost reduction is passed on to the customers — dollar for dollar — through the PGA without a markup in price. Wholesale gas prices aren’t regulated and an increase or decrease is based on market conditions of supply and demand. Since the wholesale costs change daily — while the PGA doesn’t — the PGA also includes an adjustment to compensate for under- or over-collection of actual costs in previous periods. “Although natural gas prices were higher last year, our customers’ total heating season bills were lower than normal because the 2011-12 heating season was uncharacteristically mild,” said Jim Massmann, Ameren Missouri’s Gas Supply manager. “Even with the lower natural gas rates this winter, the return of normal

tated by the Chamber. “We want the students to see industry in Washington as it is today,” he said. “We want to attract young people into these kinds of careers.” After the students have gone through the expo, company representatives will have time to network and then it will open to the general public. Although not a job fair, Wessels said students will be able to gather informa-

winter weather may result in higher overall winter heating season bills as compared to last winter.” Massmann also noted that Ameren Missouri has secured adequate natural gas supplies to meet customers’ needs during the upcoming heating season. A significant portion of the gas supply costs are hedged or price protected to insulate customers from market price volatility. Ameren Missouri reminds customers that they can reduce their natural gas usage by installing more efficient natural gas equipment. Through Dec. 31, 2012, Ameren Missouri is offering rebates for a variety of natural gas appliances. Visit ActOnEnergy.com for details and information about rebates for natural gas furnaces and boilers. Ameren Missouri has been providing electric and gas service for more than a century. Ameren serves 1.2 million electric and 127,000 natural gas customers in central and eastern Missouri.

Countdown Begins for First Brew at John G’s Taproom

The Missourian

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Page 3B

n Expanded Menu Begins Friday

By Karen Butterfield Missourian Staff Writer

The countdown for the first brew at John G’s Taproom in Downtown Washington has begun. Brewing operations will begin this Sunday, Nov. 11, with the blond ale to be ready for consumption in about two and a half weeks. Visitors are invited to stop in and watch the brewing process from an observation rail beginning at 9:30 a.m. and continuing throughout the day. The microbrewery is located in the old Droege’s Supermarket. Renovations have been ongoing for about one year, transforming the 150 year-old grocery store into a restaurant and taproom.

Griesheimer Asks Officials For Support Franklin County Presiding Commissioner John Griesheimer is asking officials of municipalities within the county to band together and pursue local option use taxes on the April 2013 ballot. He met with Union city officials Monday seeking their support. Griesheimer said the local option use tax would capture sales tax on large items purchased out of state. The initiative was sparked by a Missouri Supreme Court ruling in January that states cities and counties can’t collect sales taxes on vehicle, marine and trailer sales if the purchase was made out of state. See the Union section of this edition of The Missourian for more information.

Beginning brew operations son Veterans Day is significant to owner Terry Heisler because he served in the military for 32 years. Sunday also is the birthday of the master brewer, Shawn Herrin. Heisler owns the business with his wife, Jeri. New brewing equipment arrived on Labor Day weekend. Since then, employees have been working to get it installed, said Heisler who still needs to get the cooling system and heat exchanger up and running and do a clean and do a dry run with all of the equipment. Herrin will brew about 60 to 70 times per year, he said, adding that with the new equipment, he will be able to brew three to four times what he could at the old facility, which is being phased out. Before, Herrin would brew about 780 barrels per year. Now, he will be able to brew 2,400 barrels of beer per year. “I’m looking forward to increasing the capacity and streamlining the brewing process,” he said. “The consistency and quality should increase quite a bit with the (new) system.” Heisler said a chalkboard in the restaurant will let visitors know when brew days are, so people can visit and watch the process. Eventually, Heisler plans to do tours of the brewery operation. “Our hope is to get to the point where we can make small batches for consumption on the premises,” said Jeri Heisler. “We can have fun and be a little more creative,” Herrin added. The Heislers plan to bottle two brands of beer in six packs in local markets. Bottling won’t begin until after the first of the year, Terry

Heisler said. Expanded Menu An expanded menu in the restaurant will be introduced this Friday. “It’s our favorites plus a few more things,” Jeri Heisler said.

history,” said Chris Burnette, Mad Buffalo Distillery CEO. “My own family history includes many farmers and homesteaders who distilled grain as a means of survival. It wasn’t until Prohibition that these people produced anything illegal and sent moonshine production underground. It’s now time to reintroduce the whiskey that our greatgrandparents enjoyed.” “We want to introduce a great tasting whiskey to a new and growing segment of the population that has not had the opportunity to experience a smooth white whiskey. We hope that it will be as comfortable straight as it is in mixed drinks,” said Vice President of Operations William “Cole” Uphouse. Their traditional recipe and process will be made from 100 percent Missouri corn, grown, milled, malted, prepared, mashed, fermented, and distilled on site at their family farm, Shawnee Bend Farms. Distillery owners hope to reconnect

customers with the nation’s agricultural heritage and whiskey making traditions by creating a unique product that is sustainable, environmentally friendly, and tastes great. They have focused on environmentally friendly and sustainable practices to reduce their carbon and ecological footprints and work to ensure that their products are farm friendly. Mad Buffalo Distillery filed for a manufacturer’s license with the State of Missouri Monday. It hope to begin production in December and open for distillery and farm tours during the summer of 2013.

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.” As reported in Woman’s World, Jan 2, 2012

Accreditation Evaluation Completed by East Central East Central College President Dr. Jon Bauer told trustees Monday night that a 117-page portfolio was submitted last week to the Academic Quality Improvement Program to fulfill the Higher Learning Commission accreditation process. Every four years, East Central College and other community colleges are required to complete an accreditation evaluation. Through AQIP, ECC integrates principles of improvement to advance the quality of the education it offers. These principles help the college demonstrate it consistently meets the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools criteria for accreditation. “Accreditation is important to our students because it reinforces that these are quality programs and also

determines our eligibility for participation in federal and state financial aid programs,” Bauer said. Voluntary Accreditation Jean McCann, vice president of instruction, also updated trustees on the recent visit by an independent accreditation team from the National Association of Schools of Music. NASM is an organization of schools, conservatories, colleges and universities that establishes national standards for undergraduate and graduate degrees and other credentials. “We submitted a self-study in September and the team met with students, faculty and staff during their visit,” McCann said. She said a preliminary report from the association is expected in December and the school’s status as NASM accredited will be decided

next fall. During that time students and faculty will have an opportunity to work with the feedback left by the NASM commissioners. “The team members discussed some of their concerns regarding facilities and offered suggestions on how we can address those,” McCann said. A number of other programs including health information management, early childhood education, art/ graphic design, nursing and the Learning Center, are in various stages in the pursuit of voluntary external accreditation. “These accreditations are also important ­ — it really speaks to students. It helps them when the look to transfer on or find work,” Bauer said. “It also gives us a chance for a third party to look at areas where we can improve”

The Washington School District will celebrate National Parents as Teachers (PAT) Day this Thursday, Nov. 8. The program provides families with free personal visits with parents educators, meetings, child screenings for health, vision, hearing and overall development. Washington PAT has conducted more than 650 developmental screenings in the community in the 2011-12 school year. It also completed more than 1,400 personal visits with families residing in the school district of Washington boundaries last year and over 300 other screenings. Pat Frank, the program director, recently earned her 20-year service pin at the PAT National Conference. Seated, from left, are Eyvonne Steinert, developmental screener, 14 years; Danette Gilliatt, parent educator, six years; Gloria Bauermeister, parent educator, 14 years; Pat Frank, director, 20 years; Jenny Kelpe, parent educator, one year; Sandi Gildehaus, parent educator, eight years; and Cindy Eckelkamp, parent educator, five years.

May Graduation at ECC To Be Held on a Saturday The 43rd annual spring commencement at East Central College will be different than any previous ceremony. For the first time the event will be held on a Saturday during the day. ECC President Dr. Jon Bauer informed college trustees Monday that the ceremony will take place Saturday, May 18, at 11 a.m. “We always seem to conflicts with area high school graduations, so by moving to a Saturday we can avoid the scheduling problems that often occur for families who have loved ones completing high school and college,” Bauer stated. Previous commencements have been held on Thursday or Friday nights. Some consideration was put into holding commencement prior to finals week, but Bauer said a ceremony after final exams is more logical. “We plan to hold the nursing department pin-

The Farris vehicle crossed the centerline and collided head-on with a southbound 2006 Dodge truck driven by Patrick H. Hanneken, 55, Washington, according to the preliminary patrol report. Both Kathleen and Thurman Farris were taken by Washington Ambulance to Mercy Hospital Washington for treatment. The patrol report indicated Kathleen Farris sustained apparent serious injuries.

Bernie the Blue Jay put on a tie and flew to the Washington High School Senior Citizen Prom Saturday night, Nov. 3, to dance with the ladies. Once seen mostly just on the home football field, the school mascot has been making appearances at venues all over town to pump up Blue Jay pride.   Missourian Photos.

True Blue Jay Pride By Karen Cernich,

Missourian Features Editor

A

lot of people have pride in their school or alma mater, but not many can compare to Kenneth Mook, a senior at Washington High School. Kenneth bleeds blue — Blue Jay blue, that is. You may not know Kenneth, but if you’ve been to any of the WHS home football and basketball games the last couple of years, you’ve probably seen him in action. He’s the personality behind the WHS mascot — Bernie the Blue Jay. He dances on the sidelines, pumps up the crowd doing poses and pushups, slingshots “I Heart Blue Jays” T-shirts into the crowd (with the help of a couple of cheerleaders), hands out autographed trading cards with Bernie’s photo on them, sells blue and white Blue Jay wristbands for $1 to support WHS Project Graduation . . . And that’s just the beginning. He also visits elementary schools in the Washington School District to get young students excited about being Blue Jays and sometimes visits with the Challenge students when they come to WHS for their supplemental lessons. He’s gone to school blood drives dressed as Bernie. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, he made a No. 1 out of pink duct tape and placed it on the Blue Jay jersey that he wears to games and other events. Even though it’s standard protocol for high school mascots only to be at home games, Kenneth jumped at the chance to attend an away game with the football team in Camdenton when a couple of the players asked if he was going. Kenneth also has taken Bernie to an occasional baseball and volleyball game. He even started a Twitter account (www.twitter.com/Big_Blue_Bird_1) and created a Facebook page (www.facebook. com/BernieTheBluejay). Last year he put on the Blue Jay suit and participated in the Franklin County Heart Walk, walking three miles in the 50-pound bird costume, and last spring he donned the bird costume for The Missourian’s annual Family Reading Night even though he had just broken his collarbone in a snowboarding accident and the head of the bird sat right on the broken bone. Just this past weekend he dressed

Kenneth Mook, a senior at Washington High School, takes pride in being the personality behind the school mascot, Bernie the Blue Jay. up Bernie in a tie and took him to the annual WHS Senior Citizen Prom, and later this month he’ll suit up to be in the Holiday Parade of Lights the Friday night after Thanksgiving in Downtown Washington. In fact, Kenneth’s gigs as Bernie the Blue Jay have gotten so plentiful that he has acquired an “agent,” WHS secretary Lisa Coffman. Everything has to be approved, though, through WHS Activities Director Bill Deckelman. WHS Principal Dr. Frank Wood said Kenneth’s enthusiasm is “a lot of fun” for his fellow students and Blue Jay fans. “He gets school spirit up, Blue Jay pride, and we’re happy for that.” ‘Always Full of Energy’ Kenneth has always been serious about showing his Blue Jay pride, but it took on a new meaning for him last year when he volunteered to be the mascot. A former football player sidelined by injuries, Kenneth said it was his best friend, Luke Schroepfer, who suggested he look into being the Blue Jay. “When people think ‘goofy,’ they think of me,” Kenneth said, smiling. “I’m always excited, full of energy, always smiling . . . I want people to laugh and be happy.” Taking his friend’s advice, Kenneth

went to the WHS cheerleading coaches to offer his services, and they welcomed his participation. That first game, though, was a little nerve-racking, Kenneth admits. Standing before such a large crowd was intimidating at first, but he got used to it and quickly found he loved it. “I want the Blue Jay to be a big deal,” Kenneth told The Missourian. “I love being a Blue Jay. It’s fantastic. “And when kids come up to me and say, ‘Blue Jay, you’re my favorite!’ that’s awesome. That makes my day.” Learns From the Pros In the beginning, Kenneth simply brought an energy to Bernie’s performance at games and events, but this year is when he took his mascot responsibilities to the next level. The difference, he said, was a day he spent with the St. Louis Rams’ mascot, Rampage the Ram, and the St. Louis Cardinals’ mascot, Fredbird. “That’s the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me,” said Kenneth. “I got to hang out with professional mascots. It was so awesome!” Kenneth didn’t waste any time being starstruck, though. He got down to business. He asked questions about how I could make things better with crowd interac-

tion, and they gave him a long list of tips that included simple things like have Bernie wear a jersey. More effort was needed for some of the other tips, like try to do back flips. Kenneth loved the idea so much that he went to Dance Craze in Washington to learn how. He mastered the back tuck (as well as a front handspring into a back tuck), but it turns out it’s not possible to do flips when wearing the bird suit. “The head ends up hitting the ground,” Kenneth said, with more than a little disappointment in his voice. Keep in mind, too, that the suit weighs about 40 to 50 pounds. Another tip the pros had for him was to throw out footballs, but that is easier said than done because of the way the bird hands are configured. A Different Ball Game With football season over, Kenneth is gearing up for basketball season, which starts at Thanksgiving with St. Francis Borgia Regional High School’s annual Turkey Tournament. Wearing the Blue Jay suit at basketball games is a completely different experience from football, said Kenneth, noting for starters, it’s “crazy hot. “I loose 8 to 12 pounds of water weight at each game,” he said. And because the halftime break in basketball is only eight minutes, he doesn’t get much time out of the bird suit to cool down and hydrate before going back out to the game. Kenneth starts preparing long before the game begins by drinking many large cups of water throughout the day and then Gatorade at halftime. Shakin’ His Tail Feathers Being a naturally high energy person, Kenneth doesn’t need a lot of help getting excited before a mascot performance, but there are a few things he does to get him in the right mindset. He plays the song “Shake Your Tail Feather” and does exercises to get his heart pumping — jumping jacks and pushups. “I don’t have a coach to help me, so I just do it to get me going,” said Kenneth. What Next? As a senior, Kenneth is all too aware that his time as Bernie the Blue Jay will end this spring, and it’s pretty disheartening for him. “I won’t miss high school as much as I’ll miss being Bernie,” he remarked. He doesn’t know who will take over •See Bernie the Blue Jay 2C

Annie’s Mailbox

Dear Annie: My boyfriend lives with a woman who gave birth to his child. He says it is not a romantic arrangement. She wanted to get pregnant, and he provided the genetic material. He sleeps on the sofa. My issue is, when he wants to spend time with this kid, the mother must always be present. She also isn’t aware that he is dating me, and we’ve been together for two years. He is divorced, and his ex-wife and other children don’t know about this child. He expects me to keep his secret, stay away from the birth mother and be fine with all of this — even when overnight trips are planned. I will never be fine with this. He says I should trust him. But, Annie, I just can’t wrap my head around why I should blindly accept this. Am I wrong? Third Wheel Dear Third: Your boyfriend is juggling three separate lives: one with you, one with his ex-wife and children, and another with his “secret” child and the biological mother. We can think of no good reason for this man to be living with another woman unless he has made a commitment to her in addition to his child. He can support the child emotionally and financially without sleeping on her sofa. It is not your place to inform his ex-wife or his other children about his arrangement. However, we think he is having a romantic relationship with the woman he lives with, and you are his sideline. What you do about that is up to you. Dear Annie: I am 17 years old, and I have a younger sister who is 13. Her attitude is awful. I have to drive her to school every day, and we always get into fights. She constantly criticizes my driving and puts me down. She also calls me a lot of names and says hurtful things. We even got into a physical fight. I’ve told my parents that she is rude, and I am not inclined to do anything for her. But my parents won’t get involved. They never pun-

Pass the laughing gas. I’ve never conducted a phone interview with a dentist in a deer stand. Information on this week’s column was gathered on Sunday afternoon from a 100-plus-acre tract of land outside of Leslie, where Dr. Dave Groenke watched wildlife pass by and hoped to nab a buck with his bow. In the distance rested the last of his pumpkins, orbs in shades of the setting sun, a bright backdrop on a crisp day of falling leaves and plummeting acorns. For 31 years, Dave has practiced dentistry in Gerald, and has hunted each November. He’d dabbled in growing pumpkins in the past, but the summer before last he jumped feet first into an enterprise that’s pushed hunting onto the back burner. Dave has become a giant pumpkin grower, a hobby he enjoys that delights area children. Dave recently won accolades at the Pumpkin Palooza held in Washington on Oct. 27. The event included an official, state-sanctioned weigh-off for the biggest pumpkin — that would be Dave’s, an oblong-shaped pumpkin that tipped the scale at 428 pounds. That’s a lot of pie. Actually, you don’t make pie out of this type of pumpkin, Dave’s wife, Sharon, said from their home in Gerald. No, Dave explained later. Special pumpkin seeds are required to grow the huge pumpkins featured in contests across the country. In places like California, Washington state and Rhode Island, Dave’s prizewinner would be a pipsqueak. It’s not unheard of for giant pumpkins to top 1,500 to 2,000 pounds. It’s all about genetics, and super seeds that cost Dave between $15-$20, and that’s each. At that price, there’s

ish her, and she gets away with everything. In fact, they just bought her a new computer. I don’t know what to do anymore. I can’t wait until I leave for college and won’t have to deal with her. Is that wrong? What should I do? Frustrated Sister Dear Frustrated: We understand that your little sister is driving you nuts. This is not uncommon with younger siblings. We suggest you be the adult. Don’t let her ruffle you. Ignore her barbs and criticisms, which are intended to provoke a response and get your attention. When you need to vent, talk to your school counselor, best friend, favorite teacher or a sympathetic relative. But please remember that when your sister outgrows this immature stage, she could become your closest friend. Hang in there. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Joe’s Buddies for Life,” whose 50-year-old friend is still trying to realize a dream. I spent my career as a high school guidance counselor. Many times, kids would have plans to play sports in college as a means of paying for their degree. My advice to them was to go to the coach for an honest assessment of their skills. “Joe” needs to do the same thing. He needs to find someone who can give him a true assessment of his talents in his chosen field. He may need some moral support to face this evaluation. He will not be at all agreeable to considering another career until he faces the In St. Louis, more than reality of his chances for success in his dream 200 people died of a heroin career.

not a lot of scattering seed about. On June 2, Dave and his pumpkin helper Spencer Loeb, age 6, from nearby Canaan, placed eight seeds in the ground in the pumpkin patch near Leslie. The land of milk and honey must have been in Spencer’s blood because his seeds netted two 140-pound pumpkins. Dave’s pumpkin went on to be gargantuan, putting on 8 to 15 pounds a day, while the dentist tended it, pumping water from a lake to keep it hydrated in our horrendous drought, covering the pumpkin with a tarp and erecting two popup pavilions over the top to keep it in pristine condition. Devoted Dave tended his pumpkin full well knowing it could develop a crack, or have the leaves on its vine wither. Like a child blowing a bubble, hoping it won’t burst before reaching monumental size, Dave watched and waited with baited breath. Finally on Oct. 10, he called a halt — had to, because he and Sharon were going out of town for a week, and he didn’t want to take a chance on the weather. When he got back he needed some help. His

brother and four buddies filed into the field to load the pumpkin onto a pickup bound for his dental office. He’d never have got the pumpkin through the door if it had been round, Dave said, but the oblong squash didn’t get squashed. Dave’s assistant at work, Jessica, told him about the Palooza and that he had to compete, and so he did, collecting $250 prize money that helped offset the cost of the seeds, a load of manure, and a how-to video on growing giant pumpkins. Dave was eager to tell his pumpkin tale to prompt interest in a hobby he’s loving and hopefully beef up competition for next year’s Pumpkin Palooza. He’d also like to give a nod to his brother and buddies for helping him move the pumpkin three times, from the field to his office, then to Washington, and back to the office again. The pumpkin will remain in the dental reception area until Thanksgiving. Then it will be removed piece by piece, Dave said. That will entail a lot of sawing and slicing, but hopefully no drilling.

What Kids Are Really Doing and Learning Online May Surprise You By Michael Levin

The Internet affords children endless opportunities to get into serious trouble, downloading what they shouldn’t download, looking at what they shouldn’t be looking at, and getting ideas about what they shouldn’t be getting ideas about. But the good news is that if your kids are like mine, there’s another use for the Internet that’s attracting their time and attention. It’s called teaching. That’s right — your kids

are most likely teaching other kids how to do things that interest them. The online world, especially YouTube, has turned into an academy without walls, entrance fees, or final exams. The instructors, just like the students, are barely into double digits. Take my 10 year olds. My twin sons, Isaac and Walter, are variously interested in unicycling, origami, juggling, magic, Minecraft, jailbreaking their iPods, and similar subjects. Much of what they’ve learned about

Nine Network Launches Interactive TV Series With Real-Time Discussions “Stay Tuned,” a new, interactive television series offered by the Nine Network, engages the public in live, real-time discussions of important issues that impact metropolitan St. Louis. The innovative, hour-long, weekly series will debut Thursday, Nov. 8, at 9 p.m. on Nine PBS. It will be repeated Saturdays at 2 a.m. beginning Nov. 10. “Stay Tuned” uses the latest technology to bring people face to face for in-depth conversations, focusing each week on one topic of importance to the long-term vitality of our region. Host Casey Nolen brings overarching context to the issue during the live broadcast, inviting experts and community members to participate and interact in person and through technology using Google+Hangouts, Twitter and Facebook in a seamless integration of social media. The core of the production takes place in Nine’s community and studio space, the Nine Center for Public Engagement. Nolen opens the discussion with supporting data and video that help viewers on air and online understand the impact of the issue on individuals and the community. Meanwhile, diverse views and ideas stream in online, on video monitors and in person in the Nine Center. Nolen can converse live with experts anywhere in the world who appear in a bank of monitors

mounted on the wall behind him; they can also hear and respond to each other. An in-studio audience also participates in conversation about that week’s issue through Facebook and Twitter. Viewers at home can join in through the same media and contribute other aspects of the issue that may not have been illuminated. Also adding to the discussion in the studio is the four-person community table, panelists drawn from approximately 20 community members who rotate appearing on the show, sharing their ideas and perspectives. “Stay Tuned” represents a joint effort by the Nine Network of Public Media and the Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri-Columbia to spur meaningful conversation and provide a pathway for people to connect and impact the community. The first “Stay Tuned” episode will focus on the impact of the elections. “Stay Tuned” will be streamed every week online at nineNet. org. Viewers are encouraged to join in during the broadcast, or continue the conversation afterward, via the Nine Network’s Facebook wall or on Twitter using the hashtag #StayTunedSTL.

most physically and mentally talented individuals in the world. But they, along with their families, endure enormous stressors, many of which are never discussed due to the nature of their duties. This charity supports these elite warriors and their families. • Charity Navigator (www.charitynavigator.org): Whether or not you think you know about the legitimacy of a charitable organization, it doesn’t hurt to take a few minutes to verify an organization’s status. This site is widely recognized by investigative reporters to be a reliable resource in reporting a nonprofit’s activity. The previous two groups, in which Narmi has donated money, have been verified via Charity Navigator. • Still not sure? Skepticism is understandable. It seems the more we hear or read about charities, the more we learn that we shouldn’t simply take their word for how donations will be spent. Media coverage spotlights those outlier groups that are clearly fraudulent; however, most charitable organizations are absolutely streamlined, with workers donating their time or receiving a minimal wage. It has never been easier to verify a charity’s reputation. Additionally, for those with the time and willingness, individuals may create their own nonprofit. Narmi is working to set up his own, called Hire the Vets! “If everyone who said they support the troops gave just a modest amount to help a veteran that has risked his or her life for our freedom, we would come across far fewer tragedies on the news about vet-related joblessness, homelessness and suicide,” he says.

and when they learn. Now the game has changed and the power has shifted to kids. Obviously parental supervision is required. What’s most exciting about this phenomenon, however, is the fact that children are taking initiative to become teachers and sharers. They are not looking to make money doing this. They’re doing it for the love of the video game, hobby, hack, or technique they’re demonstrating to the world. It’s fascinating to imagine the new world that will arise when these online teachers reach adulthood. Their ethos is cooperation instead of compensation, amateurism instead of professionalism. How will they make a living? How will they translate the teaching skills they are acquiring into a livelihood? I don’t know, but chances are, some of them will figure it out. And then they’ll post their learning on YouTube, or whatever sharing technology exists at that time, and give the world the benefit of their knowledge and experience. Why not? They’ll have been doing it for their whole lives. Michael Levin, founder and CEO of BusinessGhost Inc. (www.BusinessGhost. com), has written more than 100 books, including eight national best-sellers.

With the war in Afghanistan set to end in 2014, and the Iraq war having ended two years ago, charities that help veterans and their families may be busier than ever — but without the public awareness generated by an ongoing conflict. Support for the war effort in Afghanistan is on par with the unpopular Vietnam War during the early 1970s, according to a recent Associated Press-GfK poll; only 27 percent of Americans support the effort in Afghanistan. A fundamental difference between then and now, however, is Americans’ nearly unanimous support of U.S. troops, says J.L. Narmi, author of “SEAL Team 6, bin Laden and Beyond.” “The vitriol expressed toward our Vietnam veterans by many was disgusting, but I think we learned from that injustice, and most Americans think the troops deserve much more support than they’re getting,” says Narmi, who comes from a military family. All proceeds from his book sales will go to support veterans’ charities. “The problem is that funding, whether it’s through government or private charities, doesn’t match the expressed support,” he says. “And I worry that will only get worse as these soldiers move out of the public eye and try to take up peacetime lives.” Narmi cites some good resources for Americans looking for quality charities that support the troops: • The Wounded Warrior Project (www.woundedwarriorproject.org): With advances in protective gear and life-saving medical technology, fewer troops are coming home in coffins than in previous wars, but more are coming back with lifelong injury. This charity seeks to foster a generation of well-adjusted wounded service members, and to raise public awareness about their needs and how fellow military men and women can help each other. • The Navy SEAL Foundation (www.navysealfoundation.org): SEALs are among the

these topics has come from YouTube videos. Much of those videos are written and produced by other kids. Which inspired my sons to put up their own instructional videos. Now my sons are in a race with their friends for viewers and followers on their three YouTube channels, MyWalter101, BillyBobRandom12345, and OrigamiAndMagicBrothers. This is a unique phenomenon. You couldn’t get the average kid to stand up in front of an audience and talk about his or her favorite topic. Or demonstrate a magic trick, or a guitar chord, or a hack on an iPod. But allow that same kid the privacy of his or her living room, the use of a camera built into a smartphone, and the opportunity to upload a two- or three-minute instructional video on any given topic, and you’ve got solid gold. As a result, there exists today an underground, invisible network of children taking turns as teachers and students, sharing with each other the skills, ideas, secrets and technological breakthroughs they cherish. This university without walls or national boundaries is, without exaggeration, unparalleled in human history. Children have always been at the mercy of parents, teachers and school administrators when it comes to the question of how, what

Combined Christian Choir to Hold Thanksgiving Service n November 18 at Our Lady of Lourdes Church

Feast of All Saints at Borgia To celebrate the Feast of All Saints Nov. 1, Saint Francis Borgia Grade School had an all-school mass. After Communion, eighth-graders played a “Name That Saint” game. Students portraying saints dressed in costume and read clues to help everyone in church identify the saints. From left are Annamarie Polizzi, as St. Therese Lisieux; Claire Emke, as St. Kateri Tekakwitha; Cameron Ferguson, as St. Patrick; Sam Haddox, as St. Francis of Assisi; Brianna Stephens, as St. Joan of Arc; and Lydia Submitted Photo. Helfrich, as St. Mary, Mother of God. 

The Annual Community Thanksgiving Service with the Combined Christian Choir will be held Sunday, Nov. 18, at 3 p.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in 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. Typically numbering between 80 and 100 singers, the Combined Christian Choir came together

for the first time to sing at a Thanksgiving service in 1997. Since then they have offered two concerts every year — on the Sunday before Thanksgiving and again in the summer on a Sunday near Independence Day. All concerts by the Combined Christian Choirs are signed for the deaf. The choir is directed by Paige Byrne Shortal and accompanied by Lucy Tobben, along with a band of musicians from various congregations. “This seemed like the perfect year to invite the East Central Children’s Chorale to join us,” said Shortal. “We’ve decided to donate the concert collection to purchase a music station for the

All-Abilities Park already in progress in Washington. This park will be a wonderful place for all children to play, including those with various disabilities.” 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.

Humane Society Dog of the Week

Hello, my name is Domino. I am a very sweet and cute, 7-month-old Border collie with maybe some shepherd mixed in as well. I am a very happy and energetic girl who will grow up to be around 50 pounds. My shiny black fur with contrasting white highlights will attract lots of attention. I would love to be an active part of my new home. I feel that I will be great at helping with the chores, as well as keeping my new person(s) company. It would be nice to go places like walks, camping, exploring and just about anything that you feel you would like to have a companion along. I will keep wagging my tail so that you will be sure to notice me when you come to visit. Hope to see you soon as I feel that I am wasting my good feelings at the shelter, I should be in your home! Wags and smiles, Domino.

Humane Society Cat of the Week Hi there, my name is Harry Potter. I have this unique name because I have big round eyes that remind one of Harry Potter’s big round glasses and also because I have a white “lightning” stripe down my face. I don’t need a magic wand to charm you with my good looks and fun personality. I will keep busy exploring all of the secret places in your home as I search for hobgoblins. I will be very good at curling up next to you, and I will tolerate other cats as well. If you are looking for a nice, big, brown tabby boy with lots of character, I am your boy! I’ll be saying a spell for you to come and rescue me! Purrs, Harry Potter.

An Outstanding Fair

e knew it was a great Washington Fair, the 2012 event in August, and that feeling was reinforced after the annual report on it was given at the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce business meeting held last week. Dale Westhoff, Fair chairman, presented the report. The Fair theme this year was “Making Memories” and the event lived up to those words. The Fair is much more than making a profit, which is important, but it does have activities that live in the minds of fairgoers forever. It does bring the area community together for five days to enjoy a wide range of entertainment, contests, including livestock judging and an auction, displays, fellowship, carnival rides and booths, food, motor sports, and the list goes on and on. Perhaps the most important aspect of the Fair is the work of volunteers involved in all kinds of jobs that make it a success. The Fair makes money that is used for fairgrounds improvements and other civic projects. The Fair is under the sponsorship of the Chamber of Commerce, the leader in civic improvements. Without the volunteers, there wouldn’t be much profit. For nine consecutive years the Fair’s economic impact has

hat is the biggest threat to our country? Is it Al-Qaida, China, Iran, moral decay? It’s none of those according to a large sampling of CEOs from some of the major U.S. companies. Rather, it is the massive federal debt which has increased $1 trillion or more for four consecutive years. In a joint statement issued two weeks ago, the business leaders argued the uncertainty caused by the deficit is dampening businesses’ hiring and investment and stifling the fragile economic recovery. What is the solution? The CEOs said the solution requires a combination of higher taxes and reduced government spending, including on entitlement programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. They also argued forcefully that the federal government cannot forego investment in infrastructure and math and science education as it curbs spending. The CEOs endorsed the proposals of a special bipartisan commission that called for about $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases which would save approximately $4 trillion. So just who are these CEOs who are calling for higher taxes? They head a diverse array of

gone over the $1 million mark. It was $1.1 million, up $88,518 from the year before. The net profit was $176,789, an increase of about $95,000 from the year before. The 2012 Fair also will be remembered because of the weather. The Fair had to be shut down early Friday night due to the weather. There was lost revenue, but there were no injuries. It was rather a tense time for Fair officials and fairgoers. We don’t remember the fairgrounds being evacuated in the past that early in the night. The Washington Fair has a statewide — make that regionwide — reputation for its operations. The Fair has been fortunate to have the leadership it has had in the past and it continues to have it today. The volunteers also have a reputation for their lasting spirit. There isn’t another event in this area that brings together so many people in such a cooperative spirit. It is worth holding just for the relationships that are built and endure. The Fair is one of the most valuable assets the Washington area has. We are among the many who look with awe and pride on what a wholesome volunteer enterprise the Washington Fair is. Congratulations to those who made it happen again this year!

corporations, including Aetna, Inc., Microsoft Corp., JP Morgan Chase & Co., AT&T Inc. and AllState to name just a few. They are Republicans and Democrats. In political speak, these are the revered “job creators” that politicians have cited over and over in campaign speeches and advertisements as the people our government should be supporting. And they are asking our government for higher taxes and less spending to head off what they view as the most potent threat confronting our nation. We thought we would mention this the day after the election when many of you will be reading this because whoever is elected should heed the CEOs’ warning. Our government is currently borrowing 31 cents for every dollar it spends and that is unsustainable. Smart business people appreciate this sober fact. They also understand it is going to take more than just cutting spending to eradicate the debt. Tax increases and cuts to entitlement programs are not popular campaign themes. But the election is over. Time to get down to business — no pun intended. Reducing the debt should be the top priority of government and whoever wins the election. Why? Because the job creators said so.

Election Outcome

his was written before the outcome of the election was known, but polls gave a clue to the winners. The national polls indicated the presidential race would be close. If it turned out to be close, it may be days before we know who the winner is. That’s because of news reports of some problems expected in voting in different parts of the country. Where Hurricane Sandy struck was expected to be one of the problem areas. If the results of the ObamaRomney race end up very close, and there are problems, expect challenges to be made as to the voting numbers in those places.

If the results are not close, there may not be challenges where problems occur. Will it be days before we know the outcome of some races? Will the winner be the candidate who gets more of his supporters to show up at the polls than his opponent? The one thing we know for sure is that people will be glad it’s over. It will be nice not to be bombarded with television smear ads. There’s probably truth in the observation that the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on television ads in the closing month and days were wasted since voters had made up their minds months ago as to Obama and Romney.

Editor’s Notebook

By Bill Miller Sr.

Never Completely Prepared . . . Sandy is anothH urricane er reminder that no area

can be completely prepared to handle a disaster. We didn’t really need a reminder. Missourians remember all too well the tornado that struck Joplin and before that Americans remember Katrina. The best we can do in preparations is no match from some of the blows inflicted by Mother Nature. We do have excellent emergency responders, well trained and capable to handle disasters up to a point. It is the damage to infrastructure that is a major problem. It simply is impossible to have backup for the damage a major storm produces. It is particularly horrendous when Mother Nature unleashes her wrath on a major metropolitan area such as

New York. That is when we really understand how much we depend on electricity, gasoline for our vehicles, roads, bridges, public transportation and the basics we need to get through every day. n the New York area people feel isolated from the world due to the hurricane as recovery is slow. Life savings in material things lost deepen the depression that surrounds victims. They long for somebody to tell them what and how to regain their lives, according to news reports. The cleanup from this storm will take years. A question is whether to rebuild where the storm hit. It could happen again. They talk about sea walls and other protective infrastructure. But how much protection can be devised? Mother Nature

has a way of destroying the best protection that can be designed. Among the daily routines that have been affected is eduction. Schools are closed. Some are being used as shelters. Getting to work is a big headache. Some businesses were destroyed, jobs lost. Other businesses can’t operate because workers can’t get to the workplace, or power is still off. Thousands of vehicles were lost. We have no idea how many of the victims had adequate insurance, or any at all, that covers hurricane damage. t is so much more of a problem when Mother Nature strikes a heavily populated area. We saw tornado damage at an early age in northwestern Iowa and those

Gross Misconceptions Thomas Sowell

Among the objections to ObamaCare, one that has not gotten as much attention as it should is the president’s power to waive the law for any company, union or other enterprise he chooses. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution provides for “equal protection of the laws” for all Americans. To have a law that can cost an organization millions of dollars a year either apply or not apply, depending on the whim or political interest of the president of the United States, is to make a mockery of the rule of law. How secure is any freedom

when there is this kind of arbitrary power in the hands of one man? What does your right of freedom of speech mean if saying something that irritates the Obama administration means that you or your business has to pay huge amounts of money and get hit with all sorts of red tape under ObamaCare that your competitor is exempted from, because your competitor either kept quiet or praised the Obama administration or donated to its re-election campaign? Arbitrary ObamaCare waivers are bad enough by themselves. They are truly

ominous as part of a more general practice of this administration to create arbitrary powers that permit them to walk roughshod over the basic rights of the American people. The checks and balances of the Constitution have been evaded time and time again by the Obama administration, undermining the fundamental right of the people to determine the laws that govern them, through their elected representatives. You do not have a self-governing people when huge laws are passed too fast for the pub• Continued on Page 9C

Benghazi Coverup Pat Buchanan

On June 6 of this year, a bomb planted at the U.S. compound in Benghazi ripped a 12-foot-wide hole in the outer wall. On June 11, the British ambassador’s motorcade was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, wounding a medic and doctor. The next day, the ambassador was gone and the British Benghazi post was closed. At the same time, the Red Cross, after a second attack, shut down and fled the city. “When that occurred,” says Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, who headed the military security team in Tripoli, “we were the last flag flying in Benghazi; we were the last thing on their target list to remove.” On Aug. 15, at the U.S. compound in Benghazi, an emergency meeting was convened to discuss the 10 Islamist militias and their training camps in the area, among them alQaida and Ansar al-Sharia. On Aug. 16, a cable went to the State Department describing the imminent danger, saying the compound could not

defend itself against a “coordinated attack.” The cable was sent to Hillary Clinton — and signed by Ambassador Chris Stevens. On Sept. 11, Ambassador Stevens died in a coordinated attack on the Benghazi compound by elements of Ansar al-Sharia and al-Qaida. Catherine Herridge of Fox News, who unearthed the Aug. 16 cable, calls it the “smoking gun.” Yet, on Oct. 11, Joe Biden, during the vice presidential debate, asserted, “We weren’t told they wanted more security there.” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Biden’s “we” applied only to Biden, Obama and the White House. As the National Security Council is part of the White House, Carney was saying the NSC was in the dark over the Aug. 16 cable that had warned about the exact attack that occurred. What else have we lately learned? The State Department was

following the Benghazi assault in real time. The Raid Three emails came from the compound that night. The first described the attack; the second came as the firing stopped; the third reported that Ansar al-Sharia was claiming credit. From an Oct. 26 report by Jennifer Griffin, also of Fox News, we now know there were two drones over Benghazi the night of Sept. 11 capable of sending pictures to U.S. commanders within reach of Benghazi, and to the CIA, Pentagon and White House. We also know that exSEAL Ty Woods, in the CIA safe house a mile away, was denied permission to go to the rescue of the compound, and that he disobeyed orders, went and brought back the body of diplomat Sean Smith. After the attack on the compound, the battle shifted to the safe house — for four more hours. Another ex-SEAL, Glen Doherty, made it to Benghazi • Continued on Page 9C

The ‘Golden Age’ at WHS

To The Editor: It was indeed heartening to read in the paper that the strong recommendations of Dr. Wood and one of Jim Scanlan’s daughters had persuaded the school board to name the new athletic complex in the legendary Mr. Scanlan’s honor. It is altogether fitting and proper for the board to pay this well-deserved tribute to the great man. Those of us who were fortunate to be his contemporary staff members well remember the year when the “Kirksville Gang” — Jim Scanlan, John Carter and Ray Eickmeyer — came to town to become the football coaching staff at WHS. All three came to us from the same training university, which was really something back in those days.

It did not take long for both the school and the community to find out the coming of this highly talented coaching trio was certainly a most fortuitous event, as they turned out championship teams year in and year out at WHS throughout their tenure. One might say they were the “A Team” of high school coaches in this area at that time, as their teams consistently amassed records that most coaches could only dream about. Head Coach Scanlan and his two very capable assistants were so gifted that they had a knack for bringing out the very best efforts of each and every aspiring young athlete who went out for football. Having these fine young

athletes in class was also a joy to the teachers, as we could see their pride and enhanced self-esteem on display as they proudly wore their football jerseys in all their classes on game days and behaved in exemplary fashion at all times. The contributions of these three coaches — all very personable and down-to-earth fellows — added immeasurably to really make their years at the coaching helm a veritable and memorable “Golden Age” for WHS in general. Our hats are off to you gentlemen and to all your outstanding alumni football players. We thank you for making us all very proud of our school and our community. Gene Biermann Washington

Thank God for Those Who Defended Us To The Editor: Ninety-four years ago on the 11th day of the 11th month, at 11 o’clock in the morning, church and other bells rang out loud and clear and men and women went home from work. What was the occasion? The guns fell silent on the battlefields of Europe. It was the end of World War I. This had been the most terrible war the world had ever known up to that time, and it was the prevailing notion of the day that it was the war to end all wars. We know how wrong that notion proved to be, as many wars have been fought since that time. Nov. 11, then Armistice Day, was originally designated to commemorate the ending of World War 1. As history unfolded, this day, Armistice Day, was endangered as many more armed conflicts were forced upon us. It was The American Legion that recognized America’s new war heroes and sponsored a bill changing Armistice Day to Veterans Day, a day to honor all ex-servicemen and -women. The bill passed Congress and was signed by President Eisenhower on June 1, 1954. Nov. 11 is now a day to honor all veterans, to honor the millions and millions of America’s sons and daughters who have served and are serving in

their country’s uniform in time of war. Thanks to those gallant Americans who have served and are serving under the flag of the United States during these 94 years. Every American, young and old, should pause and pay tribute to those who made the supreme sacrifice, those who died on battlefields. Let us remember too those who returned but now rest in sodded ground. Should we not think of those veterans in hospitals in sick beds throughout the land? Should we not also remember the families of those veterans who lost their lives and did not return? On Veterans Day many organizations will be observing this day with parades, dinners, programs, etc. We commend the schools for observing this most important day by inviting the veterans to programs, presented by students, honoring the veterans, and thanking them for their service. On this Veterans Day, 2012, let us all bow our heads in prayer and thank God for giving us those brave men and women to defend our great country.

Warners’ Warm-Up Coat Drive To The Editor: During these tough economic times, there are many families struggling and hurting. The little things that so many of us take for granted, like buying our children new coats for the season, are not possible for those with a stack of unpaid bills. A warm winter coat may not seem like much but for so many it is a tangible demon-

stration that others care. We appreciate the support from the Franklin County community for the annual Warners’ Warm-Up Coat Drive and hope we can count on your involvement again with the donation of new and gently used coats for our neighbors in need this winter. From now through Nov. 14 donations can be dropped at one of 24 local locations. All of

the coats donated in Franklin County will stay in this community, distributed through one of 10 agencies in the area. Unfortunately, the need always surpasses what we are able to collect so please help us spread the word and give a little warmth this winter! Visit our website for more information at www.kurtwarner.org. Thank you and God bless! Kurt and Brenda Warner

It Was a Privilege Serving You To The Editor: I know that everyone is thankful that the election is finally upon us so we can reclaim our televisions and mailboxes from the seemingly endless propaganda. As the election season winds down, my term in the Missouri House of Representatives is doing the same. I just wanted to take a moment to thank the voters of the 109th District (Washington, Labadie, St. Albans, Gray Summit, Augusta, Defiance, New Melle) for the incredible honor of representing them that they had bestowed upon me. It truly was a privilege each day of the last four years, and I will not forget it.

To those of you who supported me with your vote, your friendship, or your capital — thank you. Many have asked me since I announced that I will not seek re-election, “What are you going to do now?” I am currently serving as the executive director of the Missouri House Republican Campaign Committee and am working to get commonsense conservatives elected to the Missouri House of Representatives. Although my time as your elected representative is coming to a close, I look forward to continuing to serve my community in new ways. Scott Dieckhaus Washington

America Was, Is a Great Experiment To The Editor: For the last four years, cries of “I want my country back,” have resounded across America. This sentiment was echoed last week in a Letter to The Editor about Alexis de Tocqueville’s writings about the new American experiment in 1830. What was perhaps most remarkable about this letter is the choice of wording about how America in 1830 was not “chained” by classes and believed in “hard work and sweat.” He then goes on to say that we have accepted a “servant-master” relationship in America today. This rhetoric is stunning because when Tocqueville visited this new America, there were millions of slaves driving the American economy with their work, their bodies, and their offspring. America was benefiting by treating human beings like livestock. Tocqueville himself was incredibly critical of the racism and slave trade he saw in this fledgling country. To say that almost half of America has given up on freedom shows a marked disregard for the fact that America was founded and prospered on allowing no freedoms to African-Americans and women. Tocqueville saw potential, but he didn’t see a finished experiment. Tocqueville died before

the American Civil War, before the height of industrialization, before women were granted the right to vote, before the Civil Rights, before sweeping changes in technology, medicine and globalization. When I hear cries to go back to 1830, I hear cries that disregard America’s history. If we want the economy of yesteryear, then we must go back to slavery, take away women’s rights and autonomy and limit our trade and life spans. In regard to another letter on the subject of abortion, the same ideas apply. “Going back” to a time when abortion was illegal will not reduce the number of abortions in a society. If the true goal of the prolife movement is to reduce abortions, then the solutions are quite simple: comprehensive education, accessible/free

birth control, generous paid parental leave after birth, and legal and accessible abortion services for women who need them. But this kind of progress is also halted, typically by the same who claim to care most about eliminating abortion. Those who have held privilege in our country since its inception have had a great deal to say about the rights and responsibilities of those of us who haven’t. We can’t go back, and we can’t overturn our history of oppression. None of this is liberal propaganda. It is our history. America was — and is — indeed a great experiment. Since we have that honor, we should embrace progress and have the desire to evolve. Leigh Kolb New Haven

Praises Photos in Paper To The Editor: Thank you for featuring Jeanne Miller Wood’s excellent photos of nature, wildlife and scenery. In the Weekend Missourian Nov. 3-4, the “Morning Glow” photograph was exceptional. What a wonderful blend of colors in the sky, along with the reflection in the river. I still have a newspaper picture of a sunset that she

took in July 4, 2007, and the color still looks amazing. One of my favorite places in town is the riverfront, and she captures the ever changing beauty with her patience and photographic expertise. Also, thank you, Jeanne, for your total dedication to your craft and the pleasure you give to all of us. Ann Sellmeyer Washington

scenes of destruction never fade. But that was a rural area where homes and outbuildings would be miles apart. When a tornado or hurricane hits a city, the devastation is so much worse. There are many aid agencies at work in the New York area. Coordination is a problem, but that will be worked out in time. Actually, restoration of electricity in some areas came in a matter of days and those crews certainly are deserving of a pat on the back. The weather worldwide does seem to be going through a change. The destructive events from Mother Nature’s blows appear to be greater than ever before. One reason is that

Sowell

areas have been developed that weren’t there to be destroyed years ago. It is in tragedies such as Sandy that volunteers come to the rescue in many ways. Neighbors who hardly knew each other are bonded by disasters in mutual aid. Benefit events are scheduled to help aid agencies and individuals. There are countless acts of heroism that we will never know about, including the saving of lives. Medical first responders, hospitals and the National Guard troops save lives and bring relief to the injured. The number of the dead, missing and injured change daily as more victims are found in searches and the cleanup work. Lives have been changed forever!

lic to even know what is in them. You do not have a selfgoverning people when “czars” are created by Executive Orders, so that individuals wielding vast powers equal to, or greater than, the powers of Cabinet members do not have to be vetted and confirmed by the people’s elected representatives in the Senate, as Cabinet members must be. You do not have a selfgoverning people when decisions to take military action are referred to the United Nations and the Arab League, but not to the Congress of the United States, elected by the American people, whose blood and treasure are squandered. You do not have a selfgoverning people when a so-called “consumer protection” agency is created to be financed by the unelected officials of the Federal Reserve System, which can create its own money out of thin air, instead of being financed by appropriations voted by elected members of Congress who have to justify their priorities and trade-offs to the taxpaying public. You do not have a selfgoverning people when laws passed by the Congress, signed by previous presidents, and approved by the federal courts, can have the current president waive whatever sections he does not like, and refuse to enforce those sections, despite his oath to see that the laws are faithfully executed. Barack Obama, for example, has refused to carry out sections of the immigration laws that he does not like, unilaterally creating de facto amnesty for those illegal immigrants he has chosen to be exempt from the law. The issue is not — repeat, NOT — the wisdom or justice of this president’s immigration policy, but the seizing of arbitrary powers not granted to any president by the Constitution of the United States. You do not have a selfgoverning people if President Obama succeeds in

having international treaties under United Nations auspices govern the way Americans live their lives, whether with gun control laws or other laws. Obama’s “citizen of the world” mindset was revealed back in 2008, when he said “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that every other country is going to say okay.” The desire to circumvent the will of the American people was revealed even more ominously when Barack Obama said to Russian President Medvedev — when he thought the microphone was off — that, after he is reelected and need never face the voters again, he can be more “flexible” with the Russians about missile defense. There are other signs of Obama’s contempt for American Constitutional democracy, but these should be more than enough. Dare we risk how far he will go when he never has to face the voters again, and can appoint Supreme Court justices who can rubber stamp his power grabs? Will this still be America in 2016?

Education Tax Levy Is A Bargain To The Editor: The Special School District in St. Louis County is asking for a 19-cent tax increase on the existing $1 tax levy. The Washington School District has no such tax as special education is taken care of by the district. It is a bargain for the taxpayer. The district already has one of the lowest tax levies in the area making it a district that runs on a very low stream of revenue. I hope residents understand this and support the upcoming bond issue. A vote for our youth is a vote for America. Ed Katcher Augusta

from Tripoli. Seven hours after the initial assault that killed Ambassador Stevens and Smith, Doherty and Woods were still returning fire, when, having been abandoned on the orders of someone higher up, they were killed by a direct mortar hit. Due to stonewalling and the complicity of the Big Media in ignoring or downplaying the Benghazi story during the last weeks of the campaign, the Obamaites may get past the post on Nov. 6 without being called to account. But the truth is coming out, and an accounting is coming. For the character, competence and credibility of Obama’s entire national security team have been called into question. Hillary Clinton said she takes full responsibility for any security failure by her department at the Benghazi compound. But what does that mean? Did she see the Aug. 16 secret cable sent to her by Stevens describing his perilous situation? Was she oblivious to the battle in her department over security in Benghazi? This failure that occurred in her shop and on her watch, that Stevens warned about in his Aug. 16 cable, resulted in his death and the most successful terrorist attack on this country since 9/11. Why has Hillary not explained her inaction — or stepped down? The CIA has issued a terse statement saying it gave no order to anyone not to try to rescue the ambassador or not to move forces to aid Doherty and Woods, who died because no help came. Who, then, did refuse to send help? Who did give the orders to “stand down”? The president says he is keeping Americans informed as we learn the truth. But is that still credible? When did Obama learn that State was following the Benghazi attack in real time, that camera-carrying drones were over the city that night, that a sevenhour battle was fought, that desperate cries for help were being turned down. The CIA had to know all this. Did Tom Donilon of the NSC not know it? Did he not tell the president? Five days after Benghazi, Susan Rice went on five national TV shows to say the attack was a spontaneous protest over an anti-Muslim video. Did the president not know she was talking nonsense? Could he himself have still been clueless about what went on in Benghazi?

Our Deviant Society By Walter Williams havior doesn’t require moral acceptance or sanction. Another measure of social deviancy is reflected by the excuses and apologies that are made for failures and how we make mascots out of social misfits, such as criminals and bums. The intellectual elite tell us that it’s poverty or racism that produces criminals, as opposed to a moral defect. We call bums homeless people. That suggests a moral equivalency between people who have lost their homes in a fire or natural disaster and people who choose to be social parasites; therefore, neither group is to be blamed for its respective condition. People who are very productive members of our society, such as the rich, are often held up to ridicule and scorn. Clinton Think back to former President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and the nation’s response that “it was just about sex.” Therefore, it was no big thing for the president and his men to become involved in witness tampering, perjury, obstruction of justice and a White House-organized attack on Kenneth Starr, an officer of the court. Most Americans thought removal from office was too harsh for Clinton’s lawlessness. That kind of lawlessness helped establish a precedent for lawless acts by President Barack Obama. His most recent was an executive order that suspended legal liability for young people who are brought to our country illegally by their parents. He also repealed the legal

requirement that welfare recipients must work, by simply redefining “work” to include other things, such as going to classes on weight control. Then there are waivers from Obamacare for favored allies — waivers that offend the principle of equality before the law. Whether the president’s actions were good or bad ideas or not is irrelevant. What’s relevant is whether we want to establish a precedent whereby a president, who has no constitutional authority to repeal parts of congressional legislation, can grant special favors and rule by presidential decree like Third World tyrants. I don’t hold President Obama completely responsible for his unconstitutional actions. It’s the American people who are to blame, for it is we who have lost our morality and our love, knowledge and respect for our Constitution, laying the foundation for Washington tyranny. It is all part and parcel of “defining deviancy down,” which is the term former U.S. Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan coined in 1993 to describe how we’ve switched from moral absolutes to situational morality and from strict constitutional interpretation to the Constitution’s being a “living document.” Constitutional principles that do not allow one American to live at the expense of another American are to be held in contempt. Today’s Americans have betrayed the values that made us a great nation, and that does not bode well for future generations.

Letters to the Editor

Exceptional in Negative Ways? To The Editor: I read with interest your recent (Oct. 27-28’s weekend edition) editorial, “We Are Exceptional!” And although I thought you were a little bit rough on President Obama — after all, his being born in Hawaii and attending an idiot’s church hardly merits claiming “he comes from another culture” — I sure have to agree that “America is an exceptional nation with exceptional people.” For instance, as a people we sure are exceptionally fat. According to various objective and reputable indices, we are literally the most obese nation in the world. Which world is, I’m sure, totally inspired at the sight of American lard butts waddling around whining about (skinny) illegal immigrants, and higher taxes and gay marriage and ... Meanwhile, of course, there’s our exceptional educational system, which is managing to produce excep-

tionally bad results (at least compared to a lot of those “other countries”) for an exceptional amount of money spent per student — first in the whole wide world there. Oh, and let’s not forget our really exceptional health care system, first in the world again in money spent per patient ... But obviously exceptionally mediocre in getting results, since we rank well down the list in every measure of medical efficiency from infant mortality to average life span ... And finally, speaking of fat, how about exceptionally fat-headed? And what else can you call it when we spend thousands of American lives and hundreds of billions on wars in countries most of us can’t even find on the map? What else can you call it when we worry about other people’s business, while so much of our own goes neglected? When we play the world’s policeman toward nations like

Iran and North Korea, while their next-door neighbors sit on their hands? Of course, as Obama quite rationally pointed out, “Other countries think they’re exceptional.” But why shouldn’t they? After all, they’re playing us for exceptional suckers. In fact, I can just see those average, unexceptional, say, Frenchmen, sitting around toasting us with their exceptional wine for first freeing their country in World War II — and then fighting a half dozen or so more wars, police actions, etc. over the next half century while they ... Well, while they made exceptional wines. If America really wants to retain that “exceptionalism” that has indeed marked “its past achievements,” it needs to devote its present efforts to being that “shining city on a hill.” We need to lead by example, not brag and bullets.

Comments on Telephone Books To The Editor: Stop the presses! Stop the texting! The new phone books are here! Holy Moly! What a great idea! Put a bunch of phone numbers in a book; why didn’t I think of that! Every once in a blue moon, I actually need a phone book.

Helped Others With Alcohol Problems

To The Editor: Recently The Missourian printed in its “10 Years Ago” column an article about a car accident involving Mike Massmann and Patricia Mooney. In this accident, Ms. Mooney’s life was taken, a sad and horrible thing. Mr. Massmann was found guilty of driving while intoxicated. Mr. Massmann passed away a few weeks ago. The writer failed to mention that Mr. Massmann spent the last 10 years helping others with alcohol problems. Negative things like this need not be printed about people in such a casual manner. Close friends and family are still sad about his passing. Let some of the past stay in the past. Matthew Elbert

I haven’t been in the phone book for over 10 years. Come to think of it, it’s been 10 years since I had a landline phone. I still get at least half a dozen phone books every year. Sure hope recycled paper comes into play! Cellphones, anyone come up with a “cellphone book”? Would that be an infringement of privacy? I only have a prepaid cellphone, but in exchange for paying for calling time I haven’t any telemarketers or even a wrong number for a long, long time. I recall “411,” for information. If you really need to call someone, and that someone is no longer in the “book”; maybe

I’m just out of luck? Prepaid cellphones may be temporary, but you get a number. Get a new phone and get a new number. How would anyone keep up with all the cellphone numbers anyway? Maybe one day, there will be no more phone books! Pay phones are history! Can the “phone book” be on the endangered species list next? Would anyone want their cellphone number made public? Would someone be covered under the First Amendment for printing a “cellphone directory”? Six phone books a year, yeah if they go extinct, I won’t loose any sleep! Doug Rich Washington

Lambert Airport Makover ST. LOUIS (AP) — More than 18 months after a tornado ripped through Lambert Airport in St. Louis, work is about to begin to make over two entrances damaged by the twister. Lambert officials say they’re beginning to redo the entrances for Terminal 1. They say the terminal’s lower level entrances will be designed to enhance the airport’s historic architecture.

Glass panels will allow natural light that will brighten the pathway in the area of the lower level baggage claim. The entrance reconstruction is part of a $22 million tornado restoration campaign. The tornado on April 22, 2011, blew out hundreds of panes of glass and damaged much of the airport, but no one was killed. The project is expected to finish by the spring of 2013.

L ooking B ack 20 Years Ago Nov. 7-8, 1992

Washington voters picked the winners in all but one race for county offices Tuesday. The exception was for county assessor. With the exception of president, Washington voted with the rest of Franklin County in supporting candidates for national and state offices. The Washington School Board took no action Wednesday night on a proposal that would raise the ceiling on line item spending without prior board approval. When the newly elected officials begin their terms in 1993, there will be 13 Republicans and 10 Democrats representing Franklin County in various capacities in state and county government. Washington voters said “no” Tuesday to two tax increases and a fee for countywide 911 phone service. About 60 Washington

residents will be asked to cooperate in a program to test for lead and copper levels in tap water. The New Haven Lady Shamrocks defeated stiff competition Tuesday to qualify for the Class 1A Missouri State Volleyball tournament this weekend. Avenging an earlier loss, the St. Francis Borgia Regional soccer Knights advanced to the Class 3A District 1 championship game by defeating South County Tech Tuesday, 3-1.

With a projected shortfall of close to $10,000, the Franklin County Area United Way is making one last appeal for donations. The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is proposing a cost-sharing arrangement to upgrade the intersection at Highway 100 and High Street. A decade-long effort to remove four pecan trees that

officials say pose a threat to aviation safety at Washington Memorial Airport is over. A piece of Washington history will go on the auction block next week. The old MFA Co-Op No. 2 building in Downtown Washington will be auctioned Wednesday, Nov. 13, during a noon sale at Big Johnson’s Doc Haus on West Front Street. The start of the city’s new leaf collection program has prompted a small flurry of questions from residents. The votes are in and 11 dogs, two cats and a hamster led the pack to win spots in the 2003 Precious Pets Calendar. It took exactly 14 seconds for the St. Francis Borgia Regional football Knights to take control of their Class 3A District 3 game at Lutheran South Saturday afternoon. The Washington High School Lady Jays cross country team became the first team since the school restarted the sport in 1998 to qualify for the state meet.

Here’s one usage of the term gentleman: The gentleman helped the fallen lady to her feet. Here’s another, one we might hear from a newscaster or a police spokesman: Tonight we report on the arrest of two gentlemen who raped, sodomized and murdered an 80-year-old woman. During earlier times, to be called a gentleman meant one was honest, brave, courteous and loyal. Today “gentleman” is used interchangeably in reference to decent people and the scum of the earth. Much of today’s language usage demonstrates a desire to be nonjudgmental. People used to shack up; now they cohabit or are living partners. Few young women of yesteryear would have felt comfortable to publicly declare they slept around. Unmarried women used to give birth to a bastard; later, this was upgraded to an illegitimate birth or a nonmarital birth. In many instances, unwed mothers proudly hold baby showers celebrating their illegitimate offspring, and the man, if known, who sired the baby is referred to as “my baby’s daddy” or sometimes as “my baby daddy.” Homosexual marriages, which are not a basic human survival trait, were unheard of; today, in some jurisdictions, homosexual marriages have legal sanction. To be judgmental about modern codes of conduct is to risk being labeled a prude, racist, sexist or a homophobe. People ignore the fact that to accept another’s right to engage in certain peaceable, voluntary be-

Eagles Fly to District Title

Sullivan Defeats St. Clair

New Playoff System Works Intense, spirited, dramatic, hard-hitting and highly competitive. Those are just a few ways to describe Monday night’s Class 4 District 3 championship football game between St. Clair and Sullivan. The big rivals from the Four Rivers Conference knew each other extremely well. There were no secrets. It was clearly the two best teams in the district playing for the right to advance to the Class 4 quarterfinals. That’s the way it should be. It was a great game to watch. Sullivan 32, St. Clair 17. The Eagles proved to be the best team on the block. They handed the Bulldogs both of their losses this season. They earned the right to advance. “We’re just a hungry team,” said Sullivan quarterback Adam Tiefenbrunn. “No matter what we do, we know we have to keep going.” St. Clair had a great season. There’s teams still alive in Class 4 that the Bulldogs probably would beat. But it wasn’t meant to be this season. The Bulldogs lose a great group of seniors, but they have some younger talent on that team. They’ll be back. “We had a pretty good run. We just came up a little short,” said St. Clair Head Coach Cody McDowell. “These kids worked hard. When you get to this point of the year, you have to play well. And we didn’t play well.” Sullivan expected a fight, and it got one. The Eagles prevailed on their home field. “We knew it was going to be a tough one. St. Clair is a big rival,” said Sullivan running back Justin Biermann. “We just kept our heads in, stayed focused, didn’t worry about anything else and stuck with it.” With the new playoff format this season, it was nice to finally experience a district championship game with so much on the line. Last year, it was possible to lose your last district game and still go to the playoffs. Not this year. Instead of four-team districts, there were eight teams in each district. It will be more difficult to win a district title under the new form at, and that’s OK. Sullivan actually was awarded its district championship trophy following the game. In past seasons, the district champion always was awarded its trophy prior to the sectional game. That’s no good. It took away the emotion. District games in the past didn’t have anywhere near the emotion and suspense that Monday night had.

The sequel lived up to the hype. St. Clair and Sullivan, two longtime Four Rivers Conference rivals, slugged it out Monday night for the right to advance in the MSHSAA football playoffs. For the second time this season, the top-seeded Eagles prevailed over the second-seeded Bulldogs, claiming the Class 4 District 3 championship, 32-17. “It’s St. Clair against Sullivan, so that’s automatically a big rivalry. At the same time, it’s for the district championship, so it’s at a whole other level,” said Sullivan quarterback Adam Tiefenbrunn. “We knew it was going to be a hard-hitting game. Both teams played amazing. We just came out on top.” Like the first game on Sept. 14, St. Clair had its chances, but mistakes hurt. The Bulldogs committed six turnovers in the district title contest. “We turned the ball over. We made some mistakes as far as penalties. We missed tackles,” said St. Clair Head Coach Cody McDowell. “You can’t make mistakes like that in a game of this magnitude. They’re a good enough team to make you pay when things like that happen.” Sullivan (12-0) visits St. Clair defender Rickey Grivetti attempts to bring down Sullivan running back Clayton Mayer during the Class 4 Webb City (12-0) in the District 3 championship game Monday at Sullivan High School. Mayer rushed for 72 yards and a touchdown to help Class 4 quarterfinals Saturthe Eagles to a 32-17 victory. Sullivan visits Webb City in the Class 4 quarterfinals Saturday at 1:30 p.m.   day at 1:30 p.m.

While the season came to an end Saturday for the East Central College volleyball Falcons, they did earn a consolation prize from the NJCAA Division II Region O Tournament in Kansas City. ECC claimed the Region 16 championship. “We played well this past weekend and had good offensive and defensive efforts from many players,”

said ECC Head Coach Lisa MathesPeters. The Falcons (15-29) lost in the district championship match to Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, 2518, 27-29, 23-25, 25-14, 15-8 as the Norse captured a berth in the NJCAA Division II National Tournament. However, by virtue of a 25-17, 2520, 25-20 win over Cottey College in the semifinals, the Falcons won the Region 16 title. NEO is a Region 2

team, so ECC was the last Region 16 team standing in the event. NEO defeated MCC-Longview in the other semifinal, knocking the Lakers out of the event. The Falcons also picked up several regional honors as well. As the Region 16 champion, Mathes-Peters was selected as the regional coach of the year. “The coach of the year award is a huge honor and I am proud to represent our region in that aspect,”

Mathes-Peters said. Additionally, three ECC players were selected to the All-Regional team. They were freshmen Sadie Pafford (Bowling Green), Amanda Reetz (West Delaware, Manchester, Iowa) and Haley Zenner (Dubuque, Iowa). ECC continued its streak of reaching the District O championship match and now has done so every season since the program was • Continued on Page 3D

Borgia to Face Challenge in Rolla During Sectional Soccer Hoping to continue a strong season, the Borgia soccer Knights hit the road Tuesday to take on Rolla in a Class 2 sectional game. The Knights (4-14 officially, 15-3 on the pitch) are looking to set the record straight after being forced to forfeit much of the season for using an ineligible player. Rolla (23-4) hosted the Class 2 District 10 Tournament, opened with a 10-0 rout of Marshfield in the semifinals. The Bulldogs edged Helias in the title match last Wednesday, 3-2. Rolla won the Pacific Tournament by beating Warrenton, Windsor and Pacific, scoring six goals in each game. Rolla also won its home tournament with wins over Farmington, Ozark and Southern Boone. The Bulldogs went 1-2 at the Parkway Tournament in September, beating Parkway West but losing to Parkway South and Parkway Central. Rolla had been a Class 3 team before this season, but the Bulldogs were assigned to Class 2 for this two-year cycle. This was Rolla’s third district title in a row and fourth in the past five years. Borgia and Rolla had one common opponent this year. Both teams defeated Helias. Rolla won twice, 4-3 on Sept. 27 and 3-2 in the district title game. Borgia won 2-1 Sept. 6, one of the games the Knights didn’t have to forfeit. Rolla’s 23 wins is a singleseason program record. The Bulldogs have one of the top scorers in Missouri in junior Aaron Froehlich, who has netted 65 goals so far this season. He also has 13 assists.

Kang indicated that seniors Zac Howell or Andrew Beckerman likely would get the challenge of defending him. Other Bulldogs who can find the net include junior Hunter Short (14 goals, 21 assists) and junior Logan Houf (eight goals, 17 assists). Junior goalkeeper Gage Scurlock has recorded 15 shutouts. Borgia Head Coach Grant Kang indicated there are other Rolla players to watch though. “The Rolla team has a long throw specialist (junior defender Nathan Kramme), who can throw the ball about 50 yards. He targets a player who is about 6-5 (senior midfielder Michale Janke) who flicks on to the two strikers who are very experienced at hitting a first time shot out of the air. Basically every throw in is a set play shot situation.� The Knights rely on a balanced scoring attack with senior Jordan Miller and junior Jake Erwin leading the way. Miller leads the Knights with 20 goals. He’s added 10 assists. Erwin has scored 17 goals while adding seven assists. Kang indicated both are struggling with slight injuries, but should play. Freshman Jack Hellebusch has scored six goals with four assists. Five-goal scorers are juniors Adam Meyer and Jack Conroy. Senior Luke Schriewer and junior Zach Schweissguth have scored four goals apiece. The team’s top playmaker is junior Ben Kang, who has 12 assists to go with three goals. Junior Kevin Birk also has three goals. Tending the net for the

Knights are senior Kelly Mauntel and sophomore Joe Scheuler. Mauntel has posted a 9-1 mark with a 0.82 GAA and six shutouts. Scheuler has a 6-1 record with five shutouts and a 0.55 GAA. Kang indicated Scheuler will play during the game, but if the contest goes to penalty kicks, Mauntel would step into the goal. Tuesday’s sectional winner will play either Willard (15-9) or Carthage (19-8) in the quarterfinals Saturday. The location and time has yet to be determined for that match. The Class 2 state tournament will take place at Blue Springs High School Nov. 16-17. While Borgia is 15-3 on the field, the Knights had to absorb a MSHSAA penalty for using an ineligible player. Borgia discovered it had used an ineligible player while setting up the roster for the district tournament. Fortunately the issue was caught before it forced Borgia to also forfeit in the playoffs. Timberland, which beat Washington in a Class 3 district game, was not as fortunate. The Wolves had to forfeit their playoff win. The Knights self-reported their violation to MSHSAA and received the penalty of forfeiting all but the first two games of the season. Borgia is one of four Archdiocesan Athletic Association teams to win district championships this season. Three of the district winners were in Class 2. St. Mary’s (9-14-1) won its district and hosts Lutheran South (20-5-1) Tuesday. St. Dominic (18-6) plays at Hannibal (21-5) in another sectional match. In Class 1, Trinity (12-10) hosts John Burroughs (15-51).

Denodus O’Bryant played a major role in helping Lindenwood University to one of its biggest football victories in school history. O’Bryant, a Washington High School graduate, scored three touchdowns, all of 80 yards or more, in the Lions’ 44-33 MIAA victory Saturday at Pittsburg State, the defending NCAA Division II national champions. For his efforts, O’Bryant was named the MIAA offensive player of the week. On the game’s first offen-

sive play, O’Bryant had an 80-yard touchdown reception. He then put Lindenwood ahead 14-0 with an 80yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. On the possession after Pittsburg State cut Lindenwood’s lead to 24-19, O’Bryant caught an 87-yard touchdown pass as the Lions converted on a third and long, sparking a 17-0 run that would seal the victory. For the game, O’Bryant rushed for 147 yards on 14 attempts and one touch-

down. He had two catches for 167 yards and two touchdowns. O’Bryant, a senior running back, surpassed 3,000 yards rushing in his career and 1,000 yards rushing for the season. Lindenwood (7-3, 6-3) visits Truman State Saturday at 1 p.m.

St. Clair’s Hardin Runs to State Honors at Cross Country Meet By Craig Vonder Haar Missourian Sports Writer

The third time was the charm for St. Clair High School junior Lyndsay Hardin. Competing at the MSHSAA cross country championships Saturday at Oak Hills Golf Center in Jefferson City, Hardin earned Class 3 all-state honors by finishing in 25th place in a time of 20:30. The top 25 finishers from each race at the state meet were awarded all-state medals. Hardin has competed at the state cross country meet in all three years of her high school career. She reached the medal podium for the first time this season as a junior. “I’m psyched. I took off a little faster than I probably should have,” Hardin said. “Around the two-mile mark, I kind of zoned out. In the last mile, I just did my best.” Hardin had to work hard down the stretch for the final all-state medal. She held off Notre Dame de Sion’s Lauren Blando by one second while climbing the final hill to the finish line. “I was ecstatic when Lyndsay came across the line,” said St. Clair Coach Ben Martin. “This is something we’ve wanted for her since her freshman year.” Hardin was well aware of her situation as she worked toward the finish line. “I knew where I stood,” Hardin said. “My coaches are really good about telling me that.” So what was going through Hardin’s mind as she ran up the final hill? “It was intense,” she said. “I didn’t know if I was going to get it or not.” Martin followed Hardin for much of the race. “It was exciting to watch Lyndsay race. She made it interesting,” Martin said. “She was in 13th place halfway through and then started to fade. She held on for that last medal.” Hardin was confident go-

All-State Runners

ing into the race. “I thought I had a chance to get all-state,” she said. “I just wanted to come here, do what I could do and hope that it was good enough.” A strong work ethic for Hardin was the key to her success, according to Martin. “Lyndsay really matured as a runner this year,” Martin said. “That medal wasn’t just won at the state meet. She won that medal this summer when she got up early and ran hills and workouts. She’s worked hard all year and earned it.” Hardin has had quite a career at St. Clair, with still her senior season to go. She’s a three-time Four Rivers Conference champion and a three-time state qualifier. “Lyndsay can now add all-state to the three conference titles she’s won,” Martin said. “Being three-time conference champion was very cool. I don’t know if I’ve heard of another sport that has ever had a three-time MVP or player of the year. That’s exactly what Lyndsay has been. That’s a big deal.” Hardin has higher hopes for next year’s state meet. “My goal for next year is a top five finish at state,” she said. Austin Gotway St. Clair senior Austin Gotway capped a standout cross country career at the state meet. Gotway finished the Class 3 boys race in 34th place in a time of 17:32. “Austin ran 20 seconds faster than he did last year. He is disappointed because last year he was 31st and this year 34th, even though he ran faster,” Martin said. “He ran hard the whole way and did well. I’m proud of him.” Like Hardin, Gotway also is a three-time state qualifier and a three-time Four Rivers Conference champion. “Being a three-time state qualifier and a three-time conference champion is something to be proud of,” Martin said. “I don’t know

if the FRC has ever seen a three-time MVP or Player of the Year in football or basketball, and that’s exactly what Austin was. For the past three years, he has dominated the FRC in cross country.” Gotway made his mark with the St. Clair cross country program. “Austin is one of the smartest, most ferocious competitors that I’ve ever coached. He’s going to give every ounce of energy to fight for a win,” Martin said. “I’ll miss him a lot next year. Not just because he’s fast, but because he listens, he’s coachable and he gives it his all. We’ve called him Austin Texas since his sophomore year because he runs big.” Tyler Hinson St. Clair junior Tyler Hinson finished 151st in the Class 3 boys race in 19:56. “This was Tyler’s first time to state,” Martin said. “He got the flu the night before and was very sick. I’m just impressed he wanted to still run Saturday morning. He was a bit nervous, but ran well given his illness. He’ll have another shot next year.” Season Recap Martin said the St. Clair cross country program continues to improve. “My mission is to develop life-long runners and get them to reach their full potential while here. All but one of my returning runners got faster this year,” Martin said. “We were able to get three to state and have two individual conference champions. We had some injuries that prevented us from being four-time conference champs. Despite that, I consider this year a success.” The future looks promising. “We have some young talent coming up,” Martin said. “We’ve got a lot of running to do this summer if the boys want to be competitive. We don’t lose any of our top seven girls. They’re all coming back. With how good Owensville and Pacific girls continue to be, we’ll have to

St. Clair junior Lyndsay Hardin leads Owensville sophomore Hannah Baehr in the Class 3 girls race during the MSHSAA cross country championships Saturday at Oak Hills Golf Center in Jefferson City. Both runners earned all-state honors. Baehr finished the race in 23rd place in a time of 20:24. Hardin placed 25th in 20:30.  

ECC Volleyball restarted in 2007 with three titles and three runner-up finishes. “Sadly, we didn’t get the chance at nationals but gives me a very positive outlook on next season,” Mathes-Peters said. “The returners will be experienced and be able to provide the leadership that we lacked at times this year due to being so young.” The season marked the first time since the program was restarted in 2007 that East Central finished below .500. The Falcons went 21-21 in 2007, 3412 in 2008, 26-15 in 2009, 37-9 in 2010 and 28-13 last season. “Our schedule was very tough this year and by playing the teams we did it helped us grow,” Mathes-Peters said. “Although I am sad we aren’t going to nationals, it doesn’t take away how proud I am of the girls that have grown as players and young women this season.” NEO Up two games to one, the Falcons just needed one more victory to qualify for their fourth NJCAA Division II national tournament. But NEO, which swept the Falcons at the District O Seeding Tournament at St. Louis Community College earlier in the season, rallied from the deficit to win the match. The Norse took the first game, 25-18, but ECC came back to win a close second game, 29-27, and prevailed in a similar third game, 25-23. In the fourth game, NEO faced elimination but came back to win, 25-14, and carried that momentum to a 15-8 win in the fifth game. “Sadie Pafford and Amanda Reetz played tough versus NEO but unfortunately NEO made no errors and we did at key times when we could have turned the last two sets around,” Mathes-Peters said. “We blocked at the net well versus NEO which was good to see because they had a very offensive middle and outside.” As a team, the Falcons struggled to terminate the ball,

hitting just .177 as a team for the match. Pafford led the way in kills, putting down 14 while Reetz had 13 and Zenner recorded nine terminations.

Reetz, Froman, and Wibbenmeyer had two apiece while Patton ended with one. Cottey As the tournament’s top seed, ECC was able to take Friday night off and wait to see

who they would play between Cottey and Wentworth. Cottey College won the Friday night match. ECC warmed up Saturday morning by beating Cottey in three games, 2517, 25-20, 25-20. “Whitney Froman and Amanda Reetz had a good offensive match against Cottey and our defensive effort was well rounded,” Mathes-Peters said. The Falcons hit .171 as a team against Cottey with 35 kills and 16 errors on 111 attack attempts. Reetz led the team with eight kills while Froman and Zenner posted seven kills apiece. Pafford was next with five kills while Lashly had three, Meghan Eggemeyer (Festus) and Wootten each had two and Wibbenmeyer recorded one kill. Wootten recorded 16 assists while Stepp had 15 and Manis chipped in with one. Stepp served three aces while Wootten ended with two and Zenner added one. Manis led the team in digs with 16. Reetz posted 11, Zenner had eight, Wootten ended with five, Lashly and Stepp posted two apiece while Froman and Wibbenmeyer each had one.

Sullivan Shakes Away Injuries, Continues Memorable Season By Craig Vonder Haar Missourian Sports Writer

Stack Defends Powell St. Clair receiver Evan Powell reaches for a pass while defended by Sullivan’s David Stack during the Class 4 District 3 championship game Monday at Sullivan High School. The Eagles defeated St. Clair 32-17 and will play at Webb City in the Class 4 Missourian Photo/Bill Battle. quarterfinals Saturday at 1:30 p.m.  

Sullivan-St. Clair “We talked all week about playing within our emotions. I think we did a really good job of that,” said Sullivan Head Coach Pat Burke. “We came out and executed the game plan like we worked all week. We did what we needed to do. I’m really proud of these guys.” Statistics Sullivan accumulated 379 total yards, 257 rushing and 122 passing. Tiefenbrunn was 9-14 passing for 122 yards. He also rushed for a touchdown. Playing with a broken left hand, Justin Biermann carried the ball 15 times for 106 yards and one touchdown. “It was a great game,” Biermann said. “Our line blocked really well. They played physical. St. Clair was real physical.” Caden Weigl rushed for 85 yards on nine attempts and scored one touchdown. Clayton Mayer had 15 rushes for 72 yards and one touchdown. He also scored on a two-point conversion. “He’s our little engine,” Burke said of Mayer. “The kid is a driver. He’s an emotional leader on this team. When we need the hard yards, he’s the one who steps it up and calls for the ball.” Adam Weiland finished with four receptions for 85 yards. He also had a touchdown pass on a broken twopoint conversion play. St. Clair (10-2) accumulated 277 total yards, 159 rushing and 118 passing. Quarterback Kyle Juergens was 9-19 passing for 118 yards. He also carried the ball 16 times for 84 yards and one touchdown. Rickey Grivetti rushed for 49 yards on 10 attempts before leaving the game early in the third quarter. Early indications were that Grivetti suffered a dislocated elbow. Grivetti also had a kickoff return for a touchdown, which tied the game 10-10 late in the second quarter. “I hated losing Rickey. That hurt,” McDowell said. “We had to have other people step up.” Adam Brott had four receptions for 60 yards and had two rushes for 26 yards. Game Summary Sullivan never trailed in the district championship game. St. Clair lost the ball on a fumble on its second possession, which gave the Eagles the ball at their own 44-yard line. Sullivan took advantage, scoring on a 38-yard touchdown run by Biermann with 3:49 left in the opening quarter. The Bulldogs made the

score 7-3 on a 27-yard field goal by Jacob Meisel early in the second quarter. It was then Sullivan’s turn for a field goal as Jake Lochner connected from 24 yards away to increase the lead to 10-3 with 3:32 remaining in the second quarter. Grivetti then returned the ensuring kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown to tie the game 10-10 with 3:17 left in the second quarter. The Eagles came right back, scoring on a three-yard touchdown run by Weigl. On the extra point attempt, the snap was dropped, but Weiland scrambled and found Mayer in the end zone for two points to make the score 18-10 with 2:00 left in the second quarter. Sullivan led 18-10 at halftime. Mayer scored on an eightyard touchdown run to give Sullivan a 25-10 lead with 3:24 left in the third quarter. The Bulldogs answered when Juergens raced 47 yards for a score to trim the Sullivan lead to 25-17 with 1:55 left in the third quarter. With the score still 25-17, Juergens had another long touchdown run that was called back due to offsetting penalties. Later on the same possession, the Bulldogs lost the ball on a fumble. Sullivan sealed the win on a one-yard touchdown run by Tiefenbrunn to make the score 32-17 with 6:13 remaining in the fourth quarter. “It was a good run, but it’s second place in districts. That’s not really what we worked for,” McDowell said. “We’re losing a great group of seniors. We had a pretty good run. We just came up a little short. These kids worked hard. When you get to this point of the year, you have to play well. And we didn’t play well.” Webb City Preview Webb City, the two-time

defending Class 4 champions, blew out Hillcrest Monday to claim the District 4 crown, 55-10. The Cardinals, coached by John Roderique, have won 90 straight regular season games and 42 consecutive games overall. “We have 30 seniors our roster, which is probably the most we’ve had since I’ve been here,” said Roderique. “Just like every other team, we’ve had to deal with injuries. We lost our best defensive lineman two weeks ago to an ACL. We lost two starters on the offensive line early (Monday) night. They didn’t even play. We’ve just had guys step in and fill those spots, which has been a real key for us. Our depth is very good this year.” Against Hillcrest, Webb City rushed for 401 yards and eight touchdowns. Running back Phoenix Johnson carried the ball 13 times for 163 yards and scored three touchdowns. On the season, Johnson has rushed for 1,245 yards and 22 touchdowns. Cooper Smith also rushed for three touchdowns against Hillcest and has 13 scores on the season. Quarterback John Roderique, son of the head coach, has thrown for over 1,300 yards and 15 touchdowns on the season. He rushed for 121 yards on eight attempts against Hillcrest. His favorite receiving targets are Kohl Slaughter and Jalen Vaden. “On the second play of the game (Monday) night, John ran 72 yards for a touchdown against a fast Hillcrest defense,” Roderique said. “He’s always been able to throw the ball, but I’ve been surprised how well he’s run it. I’m really proud of how he’s improved as a quarterback.” Webb City’s defense held Hillcrest to 169 total yards, 98 passing and 71 rushing. Leading tacklers on the season are Dalton Humphrey, Logan Williams, Jose Speer and Todd Fowler. ‘“They have speed across the board. They’re a splitback veer team. They’ll run right at you,” Burke said of Webb City. “We have to be able to slow them down.”

At this point of the high school season, with most teams still alive having played 12 games, injuries usually are an issue for every team. That certainly is the case for the Sullivan Eagles, particularly on the offensive line and in the backfield. Junior running back Justin Biermann, who has rushed for 1,762 yards and has scored 34 touchdowns this season, currently is playing with a broken left hand. Wearing a soft cast in the Class 4 District 3 championship game Monday against St. Clair, Biermann rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles’ 32-17 victory. Biermann is forced to carry the ball in his right hand, even when he runs left. “The coaches got me a bunch of stuff to put on my hand, so I really can’t even feel it,” Biermann said. “The credit goes to our offensive line. They’ve been a huge factor in our offense. Without them, we just wouldn’t function.” Biermann has earned the respect of his teammates. “At this point in the season, everybody is going to be a little banged up. Every team is dealing with that,” said Sullivan quarterback Adam Tiefenbrunn. “Biermann is definitely pushing through it and giving us his all. That’s all we can ask of

him.” The Sullivan coaches will continue to call Biermann’s number. “Justin is a gamer. He has this quiet confidence. The kid rarely talks,” said Sullivan Head Coach Pat Burke. “His hand is hurting, but he’s probably feeling pretty good right now.” With injuries come opportunities. Although Biermann still is playing, he’s clearly not at full strength. Clayton Mayer and Caden Weigl have stepped up and produced big results in the Sullivan backfield. Both players scored a touchdown Monday against St. Clair. “Clayton played a great game. He really took the load off my back,” Biermann said. “Clayton and Caden do a great job for us.” Tiefenbrunn had similar thoughts. “He’s a little truck. He doesn’t go down easy,” Tiefenbrunn said of Mayer. “He’s one of my favorite guys on the team. He can run the ball.” Any football coach will say that a backfield is only as good as its offensive line. The line of scrimmage has been a major strength for the Eagles this season on both sides of the ball. “That group of five offensive linemen, we’ve been beaten up this year,” Burke said. “St. Clair did a lot of really nice things to us. Some things we haven’t seen before. We were able to persevere through it. We got the

blocks when we needed it. We got the hard yards from our backs when we needed it. We were able to find the holes and find the end zone.” Naturally, Sullivan’s skill players had high praise for the offensive line. “Our offensive line, I couldn’t ask for anything more,” Tiefenbrunn said. “I’ve been playing with them since I was a sophomore. We’ve taken our lumps and bruises over the last couple seasons. It’s nice to have some success with them this year. I couldn’t ask for anything more from them.” The senior class has led the way for the Eagles during their current 12-0 season. Production has come from a number of different players. “We’re beat up. It’s a mash unit. It adds character to the team,” Burke said. “We have a large senior class. We have guys who are role players. We’ve talked to some guys from day one about being a role player. They may only play at certain times, but when you get that opportunity, you make the most of it. We have seniors who have barely seen the field this year, but they understand the role that they play. We had some guys come in tonight and give us snaps that we had to have. They did a fantastic job. This group of seniors have worked so hard. I love these guys. It’s an incredible group of kids.”

Washington Freshman Plowman Learns From State Experience Competing at the MSHSAA cross country championships can be a nerve-racking experience for any high school runner, much less a freshman. Josie Plowman, a freshman, was the lone runner from Washington High School who qualified for the state meet. Competing in the Class 4 girls race, Plowman finished in 112th place in a time of 21:15. “Josie was a bit in awe when we got to the course,” said Washington Coach Mike Olszowka. “It can be overwhelming walking into such a huge meet. There were hundreds of tents, estimated to be over 5,000 spectators and over 1,300 runners.” Plowman got into her running routine, which settled her nerves. “Once we got Josie warmed up, she was her usual self,” Olszowka said. “Looking at her place is not fair when compared to her race. Josie ran her second fastest time of the year on the hardest course of the year. When you get a freshman to the state meet, you try to make it a learning experience.” Olszowka said Plowman improved as a runner as the

season moved along. “After the race, we talked to Josie and she was able to talk about different parts of the race and the course,” Olszowka said. “That says so much about her learning curve throughout the season. She is no longer a runner, but is developing in to a strong young racer who has three years to continue to improve.” Eureka sophomore Hannah Long cruised to a firstplace finish in the Class 4 girls race in 18:06. Francis Howell captured the Class 4 girls team title with 81 points. Eureka finished second with 103 followed by St. Teresa’s Academy with 116 and Lee’s Summit West with 129. Blue Springs’ Simon Belete flew to the Class 4 boys win in 15:48. St. Louis University High won the Class 4 boys team crown with 98 points. Blue Springs was second with 98 followed by Lafayette with 143 and West Plains with 188. Season Recap Olszowka said the Washington team had some tough breaks this season. “Overall, our season was a bit disappointing. But when you break it down, there’s not much that was within our control,” Olszowka said. “We had three ex-

perienced kids who started training on day one. They missed the whole summer due to track injuries. We had one of our top three boys move to Texas. We had a car accident that sidelined two varsity runners for the last six weeks of the season.” There were positives from the season. “We lose only three runners to graduation, and some of the kids are already running their winter programs to prepare for the track season. We had the biggest group of freshman girls that we have had in five years. They all had spectacular rookie seasons. We had two freshman boys who were both varsity contributors by season’s end. We had 25 middle school kids on the team. “We are learning as a team that the season cannot start on the first day of practice. Our little victories have made us a stronger team and we are sticking together so we can continue to prepare for the next season. On behalf of the coaches and the kids on the team, we would like to thank the parents for their support and commitment to Washington cross country. The 6:30 a.m. practices, pasta parties, long Saturdays and early Mondays. We couldn’t have done it without you.”

Roderique said he knows very little about Sullivan, but respects what the Eagles have done this season. “If you’re still playing at this point of the season, you have a well-coached team with good players,” Roderique said. “We expect a big challenge from Sullivan.” The quarterfinal contest takes place in Webb City Saturday at 1:30 p.m. The Eagles will leave Friday, get adjusted to the surroundings and then face the biggest challenge of their high school football careers. The Cardinals (12-0)

slapped around a very good Hillcrest team to win their district title Monday night, 55-10. The game basically was over in the second quarter. Sullivan has never faced a challenge quite like the one it will have Saturday. No one outside of the Sullivan city limits will give the Eagles a chance. A win over mighty Webb City would send shock waves throughout the state. Yes, the Eagles are major underdogs, but I wouldn’t totally count them out. They’ve been an impressive team this season.

Sullivan’s line isn’t big, but it’s very good. The skill players are very talented. Team health is a concern. The Eagles need to be healthy and firing on all cylinders to have a chance. “To be able to go there and experience what high school football is all about is something I’m really looking forward to,” Burke said. “The kids are also looking forward to it. Whatever happens, happens. We have a great group of kids. I’d put them up against anyone in the state.”

Craig’s Corner Now, part of that was due to the fact that Sullivan and St. Clair are big rivals. Both teams really wanted to win. Both teams were confident. Both teams thought they were the better team. I’m sure district games throughout the state were the same way. High School football should be an emotional game. Both teams played with plenty of emotion Monday night. “We talked all week about playing within our emotions. I think we did a really good job of that,” said Sullivan Head Coach Pat Burke.

“It’s basically everything a senior can ask for. It’s very emotional when everything comes together,” Tiefenbrunn said. “You work all summer and it leads up to this. When you’ve been growing up with these guys and can achieve something like this, it’s a big step. We’re going to relish this, but we have to move on to the next one.” And the next one is a giant. Sullivan pays a visit to twotime defending Class 4 champion Webb City, winners of 42 straight games overall and 90 straight regular season games.

The Cardinals’ last loss was in the 2009 state semifinals against Kearney. Their last regular season loss was against Hickman in 2003. “All teams are different, but we do a lot of the same things we’ve done here for years,” Webb City Head Coach John Roderique told me Tuesday morning. “We were old school Webb City football last night against Hillcrest. We ran a lot of option right at them. We’ve run a shotgun pistol formation at times this year, but didn’t do it at all last night. We just ran right at them and rushed for over 400 yards.”

Making her third appearance at the state meet, Hardin won her first state medal by finishing 25th in 20:30. “I’m psyched. I took off a little faster than I probably should have,” Hardin said after the race. “Around the twomile mark, I kind of zoned out. In the last mile, I just did my best.” Hardin grabbed the final allstate spot by one second. “I was ecstatic when Lyndsay came across the line,” said St. Clair Coach Ben Martin. “This is something we’ve wanted for her since her freshman year.” Pacific junior Ashley Brinker finished in 42nd place in 21:02. “Ashley ran a smart race,” said Pacific Coach Justin Perriguey. “She improved her position throughout the race.” St. James freshman Leslie Perona placed 59th in 21:20.

Festus finished second with 100 followed by Smithville with 110 and Villa Duchesne with 135. Class 3 Boys St. Clair senior Austin Gotway placed 34th in 17:32. “Austin ran 20 seconds faster than he did last year. He is disappointed because last year he was 31st and this year 34th, even though he ran faster,” Martin said. “He ran hard the whole way and did well. I’m proud of him. He’s a three-time state qualifier.” Sullivan junior Randy Swaller placed 69th in 18:13. Sullivan junior Chris Erxleben was 71st in 18:15. St. James sophomore Alex Auxier placed 73rd in 18:17.

Six members of the Class 3 District 9 softball team were selected for all-region honors. District champion Sullivan placed pitcher Tessa Johanning and infielder Emmie Blankenship on the first team. Union outfielder Courtney Zweifel also made the first team. Second-team picks were Union pitcher Brooke Ruether, Borgia catcher Taylor Nadler and Sullivan infielder Harli Wheeler. All six were on the AllDistrict 9 team as well. Johanning and Ruether were joined on the pitching staff by Salem’s Cortney Putman and Owensville’s Claire Smith. Catchers were Nadler and Union’s Briana Lake-

depth. “Ashley Brinker and Hannah Graf were improved this season. They both improved their personal bests by about 45 seconds. That qualified Ashley for the state meet. Hannah was one spot from qualifying,” Perriguey said. “Kashmir Curtner made a tremendous comeback after having knee surgery last February. She had a great season. Sarah Turner was one of our few newcomers this year. She has a great mind frame for running and racing. Morgan Webb and Catherine Hayden were also returning runners. Both girls came into the season in the best shape they have been in at the start of a season.” The future looks promising for Pacific cross country. “The boys next year will definitely miss Dan Dieckmann and Isaiah Hudson. If the young guys keep working as hard as I think they will, they will continue to step up and someone will fill those spots,” Perriguey said. “The girls team will miss Morgan Webb. She has been a top five runner every year. That’s going to be difficult to replace. I know the returning girls will continue to improve and put in the work to get better.”

were Zweifel, Sullivan’s Michala Martin and St. Clair’s Nicole Nardi. Utility players on the all-district team were St. Clair’s Anna Reed and Sullivan’s Sarah Messex.

in the FRC and fifth at districts,” Perriguey said. “We got several good races out of a bunch of new runners.” Several runners contributed to the boys team. “I was happy to have Zach Myers and Isaiah Hudson come out as upperclassmen,” Perriguey said. “We also had four freshmen run at the varsity level, McCoy Meshach, Spencer Torwegge, John Whitelock and Kyle Robinson. They helped make this one of the deepest teams I have coached. Our returning varsity guys, Dan Dieckmann, Jeremy Hill and Ryan Lause, were key to setting the tone for our team early in the season. They were all quite a bit faster than the previous year. Hill and Dieckmann were great training partners in practice.” The Lady Indians also showed improvement. “The girls team placed second in the conference and eighth at districts in 2011. This year we made the conference meet closer and placed fifth at districts,” Perriguey said. “Improving with almost the same squad we had the previous season shows how much work the girls put in during the summer.” The girls team had solid

ATTENTION SENIORS: Maintenance free senior living at its finest. Spacious new condos built with seniors in mind. No steps leading into the home, flat driveways, covered porches, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, main floor laundry, large kitchen, full walk-out basement for storm shelter or future expansion (great for resale value).

Griesheimer Asks for Use Tax Support

n  Requests Ballot Initiative $1 million in sales tax revenue a year. State sales taxes, at the rate of 4.225 percent, still are collected on all vehicles registered to Missouri residents. If a vehicle is purchased in Illinois the buyer is not subject to the municipal sales tax, only state sales tax. If a vehicle is purchased in Missouri, for the same price, the buyer still is required to pay the local sales taxes. “It is totally unfair,” Griesheimer said. “As this continues to progress it is going to cost jobs — there is no doubt about it.” A local use tax would be a mechanism to collect the taxes for items purchased out of state, Griesheimer said. County officials have not voted to place a use tax on the ballot. The city of Washington is

Fire Causes Heavy Damage n  At Industrial Cleaner in Union

Fire officials said oil-soaked absorbent pads kept crews on the scene of a blaze Tuesday at an industrial dry cleaning company for almost 12 hours. Union Fire Protection District Chief Russ Hamilton said there were nine fire districts on the scene of the three-alarm fire and two more stationed within the Union district.

He said the first crews were dispatched at 1:05 a.m. to the to Akcire Group, Inc., located at 6 Chad Lane, Union. The building is off of Prairie Dell Road. “The nature of business is they bring in oil-soaked absorbent pads, launder those pads and ship them back out,” said Hamilton. “They have a system set up where pads

go through an extractor and then through a dry-cleaning process.” Fire crews with equipment from Union, St. Clair, Beaufort-Leslie, Boles, Pacific, Washington, Marthasville, Gerald-Rosebud and Sullivan all responded to the scene. Eureka and Metro West fire companies were stationed at Union Firehouse No. 3.

Franklin County Presiding Commissioner John Griesheimer is asking municipalities to join the county in pursuing a “local option use tax” to capture sales tax on large items purchased out of state. Griesheimer spoke to the Union Personnel, Finance and Public Works Committee Monday asking officials to ask voters in April 2013 to approve the tax. A January Missouri Supreme Court ruling states cities and counties can’t collect sales taxes on vehicle, marine and trailer sales if the purchase was made out of state. The ruling went into effect in March. That gives local dealers a “competitive disadvantage,” Griesheimer said. It is estimated that the Supreme Court ruling will cost Franklin County over • See Tax Support Page 2U

Recommend Pay Increase for Elected Officials By Gregg Jones

Union Missourian Editor

City officials Monday agreed to nearly double the pay of aldermen that better align with the salaries of elected officials in other municipalities. Personnel, finance and public works committee members recommended that aldermen approve an ordinance that will increase the annual pay of aldermen from $2,000 to $3,900.

If approved, the ordinance would impact aldermen who are elected in April 2013. City Administrator Russell Rost said $3,900 was just below the average pay of aldermen in Missouri cities with similar populations and budgets as Union. “You really aren’t voting for yourself, but for who is running and wins in April,” said City Administrator Russell Rost. He added that a survey was conducted among Missouri cities

through the Missouri Municipal League (MML). Rost used information from the 11 cities that are the most similar in size and budget to Union. Committee members Dale Schmuke, David Pope, Karen Erwin and James Albrecht voted in favor of the recommendation. Alderman Vicki Jo Hooper voted against the salary increase recommendation. The last pay increase for aldermen was in 1987.

“This is something the board has struggled with in the past,” said Schmuke. Some officials have noted that an increased salary may attract a qualified candidate who may not run otherwise. “I certainly hope they don’t run for money, but to make things right for the city,” said Erwin. Rost said the item has been placed on the committee’s agenda in October each year so it can be discussed before filing for city of-

fices opens in December. City Attorney Tim Melenbrink has said that once filing opens, the salaries should remain the same. However, if they choose to change the salaries, it should be done at the appropriate time. Rost added that the goal this year is to vote on the increases before filing for office opens in December. Two years ago, the city agreed to increase the pay of the munici• See Increase Page 2U

Board May Ask Voters To Eliminate Position n Of Elected City Collector

By Gregg Jones

Union Missourian Editor

Union voters will likely choose in April to keep or eliminate the elected city collector position. The city’s personnel, finance and public works committee agreed to place a measure on the April 2013 ballot asking voters if they would like to eliminate that position. In 2009, aldermen passed an ordinance that stripped the collector’s position of all duties and reduced the salary to $1 compensation, and to contract collection services with Franklin County. The city collector is Terry Copeland. His term expires in April 2014. By state statute, aldermen can set the salary of an elected position but cannot eliminate the position without a vote of the people. According to Union Finance Offi-

cer Heather Keith, last year the county charged the city for collection service a $4,000 fee and about 2 percent of the total taxes collected. If all Union residents would have paid taxes last year, the county would have taken 2 percent of $1,850,033, or just over $21,000. However not all residents paid the taxes owed. Keith noted that the benefits and payments to the city’s insurance provider totaled $60,398 for the city collector prior to Copeland. “It is time to proceed with this,” said Alderman Bob Schmuke. “We didn’t do this before because we wanted to make sure it benefited the city.” City Administrator Russell Rost said he contacted City Collector Terry Copeland to inform him that the committee would discuss the elimination of the collector’s position.

TAX SUPPORT CONTINUED FROM 1U

the only entity in the county that still receives local taxes for vehicles purchased out of state through the voter-approved local option use tax. The city of Washington currently has a 2 percent option use tax. That means Washington could still collect 2 percent in taxes on vehicles purchased by city residents, even if the vehicle came from out of state or from a private individual. Griesheimer said there was a bill to fix the tax revenue hole created by the high

court approved last legislative session, but it was vetoed by Gov. Jay Nixon because it included a retroactive clause. He added that even if a similar bill is approved, it could get challenged again in the Supreme Court. “The only way to fix this is to push for a use tax,” Griesheimer said. That is why he will push for a local use tax even if legislators fast track a bill that would allow Missouri entities to collect the vehicle taxes.

POSITION County Collection The county collector’s office began collecting for municipalities in 1998 when it started collecting for Washington. Other cities began soliciting the service. In 2010, Union was the latest to have the county collect its taxes. Each of the cities the county collects for is assessed a charge for the service. One and one-half percent of the total charge goes to the collector’s fund and one-half percent goes to the assessor’s fund. That money goes to the general revenue fund and offsets the extra costs in each office.

pal judge position to bring it in line with other local city judges. That decision was made prior to an election for the city judge position in April 2011. The city judge earns $5,484 and the mayor earns $6,000. According to the figures presented by Rost, the average pay for mayors in similar cities is more than $9,000. The committee will wait to address a pay increase for the mayor’s position. Mayor Mike Livengood’s term will end in 2015. Officials have said that it is the opinion of the MML that an elected official can be given a raise anytime before an election is certified.

In addition to the collector and assessor charges, the county collector and clerk each get a $2,000 commission for their services. This is because both are held personally accountable for the accuracy of their offices. Berger, Gerald, Leslie, Oak Grove Village and Parkway Village do not have to pay to have the county collect their taxes for them because so little tax is collected. Another benefit to cities is that the county is better able to collect on delinquent bills. As long as the individual lives within the state, he or she will have to pay personal property tax to renew license plates and tags at the Missouri Department of Revenue.

He further explained that he will meet with Gerald city officials Thursday night, and others in the coming weeks. “If we do this as a number of entities, we have a better chance to pass it,” Griesheimer said. City Administrator Russell Rost said he was informed earlier this year that the city would lose about $42,000 annually in tax revenue as a result of the Supreme Court ruling. “That was before people knew about it,” he said.

Hamilton said there were both oil-soaked pads and clean pads that were on fire. “Of course the oil-soaked rags burned a lot faster,” he said. “It was a very tedious process to get that extinguished.” Hamilton added that many of the pads were stacked in piles or shrink wrapped and stored off the ground waiting to be loaded into trucks “I would call it a total loss,” he said.

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Halloween was much different for me as a kid than for the little ghouls that I saw running around town last week. We set up camp outside of our house. We built a fire, invited a few friends over and prepared for the onslaught of costumed children begging for candy. There were about 12 kids who came down the street. We didn’t see the first kid until after 6:30 p.m. When I was a kid we would start trick-or-treating at 5:30 p.m., give or take, and we would keep going until around 9 p.m. We didn’t use little plastic buckets shaped like pumpkins to collect candy. Instead, we ripped the pillowcases off the pillows and filled them to the brim with candy. When we got home we would devour a few pounds of candy before slipping the

Oasis Lanes Bowlers Raise Funds

Bowlers recently “bowled for the cure” at Oasis Lanes and raised $92.95 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. strives to raise funds and educate people in the battle against breast cancer through global events and legislative actions each year. Breast cancer is still killing and impacting far too many of our loved ones. Oasis Lanes owners said they will continue to participate in the raising of funds for worthy causes.

pillow cases back onto the pillows and lay down in a pre-diabetic daze. I may have stretched the truth a bit, but when I was a kid there were swarms of children in our neighborhood pounding on doors and screaming for candy. Jami and I prepared for a large number of kids, and we were a little disappointed when very few stopped by for treats. It is hard to eat a healthy diet when you buy 50 Snickers bars and can only give away 20. I know some neighborhood streets were packed with kids, but I think there are fewer kids who are asking strangers for candy. Many children go to trunk-or-treats sponsored by local organizations and churches. It is a safer alternative to coming within feet of adults who they have never seen before. But going door to door is a fond memory I will always have. The children who I did see in costume this year were much more creative than I was. I saw some awesome little tykes dressed as Mario and Luigi, a giant mouse in a trap and two kids dressed as an egg, a pancake accompanied by their dog dressed as bacon. Growing up in Michigan, there was always a possibility of freezing temperatures and even snow on Halloween. We would dress warmly but by the end of an evening spent walking and sweating, I had taken half of my costume off and was just a kid in a cap with a pillowcase asking for handouts. My costume seldom varied from year to year. I was either a clown or a devil, both of which I have been

called just recently without the costume. There was one year that I was bold and dressed as a hobo. That was essentially the same old clothes and long coat I wore as a clown, but I didn’t wear the face paint. I got in trouble that year in school because while I was dressed as a hobo, I rolled up my pants and closed my coat and transformed into a flasher. That didn’t go over very well with my teacher and I was back to being a hobo. While I don’t encourage children to dress as flashers, I was hoping to see more trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood — even if they were just kids in capes asking for handouts.

AND OTHER COMMUNITIES...

Armed Robbery Friday at East Osage Shoe Store An armed robbery took place in a Pacific business this past Friday, the first such crime in recent memory, police said. “This is the first armed robbery on my watch,” Police Chief Matt Mansell said. A man in a black cowboy hat walked into the Red Wing Shoe Store at 313 E. Osage at about 1 p.m. looked at merchandise and asked prices. He left saying he might be back. The man returned a few minutes later, knocked on the rear door to the store and pointed a gun at the store manager, Man-

n Man Fled in Red Ford Expedition sell said. “He went in and cased the store,” the police chief said. The store manager screamed and ran out the front door and across the street. The suspect left the scene in a red Ford Expedition. Police arrived on the scene within seconds, Mansell said. Capt. Larry Cook called St. Louis, Jef-

ferson and Franklin County sheriff ’s departments, the city of Eureka and the Missouri Highway Patrol asking them to help look for the suspect. It was later determined that the man entered the store after the manager fled to safety and left with some personal property. “This is definitely considered armed robbery,” Mansell said.

The authorities did not locate the suspect on Friday, but the investigation is ongoing, he said. “We have three detectives working on it,” Mansell said. “We do have some evidence.” It is believed that the individual is not from this area. Mansell said it is unusual to have an armed robbery in Pacific, but not totally surprising with the holiday season drawing near in tough economic times.

City Gets Humvee From Department of Defense n Can Go Anywhere in Any Weather

By Pauline Masson Pacific Editor

Police Acquire Humvee Police Chief Matt Mansell stands beside the Humvee that the Pacific Police Department received from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). Mansell worked for 18 months trying to get a DOD discarded Humvee. Last month he contacted Lisa Geiser with the Missouri Department of Public Safety and was able to pick up the vehicle in Jefferson City Oct. 1. The rough terrain vehicle will be useful in high water, heavy Missourian Photo. snow and heavily wooded areas, Mansell said. 

Silica Sand Bluffs Ranks As Most Visual Attraction By Pauline Masson Pacific Editor

The sand bluffs and caves along Pacific’s northeast border have been identified as the city’s most visual attraction. The landmark won that distinction as officials begin to explore ways to attract tourists to the city. In recent years private citizens have found new ways to attract visitors to the bluffs. A Civil War replica cannon, placed atop the sand bluff at the center of Old Town in Blackburn Park, attracts a constant stream of Civil War enthusiasts. Video cameras aimed at the cannon show visitors getting out of their vehicles to look at the cannon, or the view, all hours of the day. A small meditation garden dedicated to parents of children who have died was created at the base of the bluff in Lower Blackburn Park. Named A Dad and a

Mom’s (ADAM)s garden, the small park also attracts visitors daily. Restaurant owner Phil Zahn opened the old mining caves opposite his Third Rail restaurant, allowing thousands of visitors, and locals who had never been inside the caves to explore the vaulted openings. The MVGHS Civil War Committee identified the Route 66 business park in front of Zahn’s caves, as the logical location where the legendary Civil War Camp Herron was located. One member of the tourism commission said this could be just the beginning of mining the city’s most obvious geological formation — not for Silica sand, as a local industrial firm has done for 100 years — but for history and geology studies. “We have the most dramatic exposure of the St. Peters sandstone in Missouri,” said Jo Schaper, local geologist, who often gives seminars on the sand and its origin.

Sports Club Finalizing Dinner Auction Plans By Pauline Masson Pacific Editor

The Pacific Indian Sports Club is finalizing plans for the 16th Annual Banquet and Dinner Auction. The annual event is the largest fundraiser for the Pacific Indian Sports Clubs. Through donations from businesses and individuals, the proceeds benefit hundreds of students involved in school district team athletics. Cost is $15 per person or $120 for a table of eight. In recent years, proceeds from the event have been used to buy an end zone video tower camera for football and a Noah shooting system, which includes camera, laptop and software for girls and boys basketball. Ketina Armstrong, Riverbend School, is donations chairperson. Her team is soliciting businesses for items to be auctioned in the live auction or blind auction.

The Pacific Police Department has been given a U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) discarded Humvee. The 1992, all-terrain vehicle, will enhance the department’s ability to answer many calls that it now is not capable of handling, according to Police Chief Matt Mansell. “There are times when a police car can’t get through things like heavy snow or high water,” Mansell said. “This is a full military vehicle that can get anywhere in any weather.” The vehicle would also be used in rescue searches in heavy woods, where it could carry ambulance district personnel. A clear interior in the extended bed vehicle would allow the department to carry EMTs to remote rescue spots and bring victims out on a flat board. “Heavy woods is also a favorite place of methamphetamine labs,” Mansell said. The chief said he spent more than 18 months trying to acquire one of the vehicles. He worked through the DOD process of redistributing obsolete vehicles from its equipment lot focusing on the

DOD website. He studied obsolete or redundant equipment that is issued to municipalities and counties and process for cities to acquire it. “I didn’t seem to be getting anywhere,” the chief said. “A month ago I connected with Lisa Geiser with the Missouri Department of Public Service and we were able to pick up the Humvee in Jefferson City yesterday.” Mansell observed that there is much more to this rough and ready vehicle than meets the eye of ordinary civilians. The average motorist cannot just get in and drive one. “It will be assigned to specific officers,” Mansell said. “There will definitely have to be some training involved.” Mansell said he fooled around with the interior of the vehicle for more than an hour and could not turn on the lights. “Luckily we have an office with some ex-military people on the force. Rodney Backus drove the vehicles in Afghanistan,” the chief said. “He was able to get in and show me a few things in a matter of minutes.” The Humvee can definitely help the department get into places vehicles cannot get into now, Mansell said.

Nike Elementary Holds Healthy Body, Brain Event Teaching children about living a healthy lifestyle is not as hard as some might think, according to Nike Elementary School educators. Teachers, along with Cindy Meyer, school nurse, Lynn Will, school computer lab aide and yearbook coordinator, teamed up with Liz Byerley, Chartwell Foods, who is the district director of health and nutrition, staged a Healthy Body, Healthy Brain Family Reading Night in the gym for students and parents. During the Oct. 4 activity,

students and family members learned some simple ways to build brainpower. The event had a twofold purpose, according to Will. Students and parents were able to spend time as a family learning about ways to keep their bodies and brains in tiptop shape. Participants were able to make a fun snack, practice proper hand washing, get important reminders about bike and car safety, ways to build brainpower, and more.  Students received toothbrushes and toothpaste af-

ter learning proper brushing techniques. Candee Vogel showed students how to do yoga. Nancy Rosa went through role-playing games with kids showing ways to resolve conflicts. Nurse Cindy Meyer talked to students about fat content in foods and making healthy food choices. Byerley helped students make fruit kabobs using healthy food choices.

I Have to Tell You...

The Missourian

Pauline Masson, Editor

Cleta Null is the CEO of Christmas Present. If that sounds like a play on words, I have to tell you, Charles Dickens’ transformation of Scrooge was like a whisper compared to the whirlwind of giving that takes place in the Pacific community each Christmas. Cleta is organizer of the Adopt-a-Family program, which crisscrosses the needs of struggling families with the age-old desire to do something special for Christmas tied together like Jacob’s dream of a ladder reaching to heaven. It all holds together, one knot at a time. Cleta has set up a program, now 20 years old that collects, assembles and redistributes thousands of presents for specific families in a two-month period. And every piece is individually wrapped. She is the promoter, revenue generator, buyer, warehouser, assembler, gift wrapper and deliverer of many Christmases that might never have been. Here’s how it works. All year schoolchildren and civic groups hold fundraisers, collecting money to buttress the store of clothing and gifts that pile up in the basement of Cleta’s snug home on Highway 100. At this point, it’s unknown how many struggling families will apply for a Christmas basket of clothing, gifts and food this year. Last year, the group provided Christmas for 673 families, including 2,400 children and 100 senior citizens. Donated diapers, strollers and cars seats that exceeded the needs of families were donated to Pregnancy Assistance. They also gave out 200 bicycles, one to every child who asked for one on their list. Any extra bicycles were given to the Backpackers program. Agape House Food Pantry, the Meramec Valley School District and local churches help Cleta identify and qualify families that might need an extra package under their tree each year. Applications are sorted to identify the number of adults, and number, age and gender of children. Each one will receive one item of clothing, one gift and a complete Christmas dinner. The children each receive socks, underwear, a new outfit and a warm coat. If they have identified a gift they particularly want, she makes note of it. She considers this list the orders for her annual business. This program concludes in a rush of deliveries in family cars, trucks and SUVs that lasts a full week — this is the week Cleta said that people feel the greatest need for Santa Claus, the mythical giver of magical presents. It’s not about charity, she says, it’s about the health of community sharing — a custom that is older than both the conversion of Scrooge and Santa Claus, which were invented to demonstrate the elegance of giving. Where does she get the stuff to help all these families? She’s a heck of a salesman and promoter of her program. Did I mention that earlier? Wal-Mart gives her every package of socks or underwear that has been opened in the store or returned and every bicycle that has been returned. They give her children’s clothing, including girls holiday dresses of red satin and lace collars. But this is just a fraction of what she needs to fill all those orders. If you walked into Cleta’s basement while all this is going on you might think it looked like a resale business in high gear. Items are piled against three sides of the wall, from the floor to eye level. Boxes are labeled in handwritten notes. Volunteers are inspecting the gifts, especially the electronic items, to make sure they are new and that they work and have batteries if needed. Now she looks at her list and the revenue needed to buy the remaining items needed. Churches, civic organizations, schoolchildren and individuals contribute to this program. She buys the items that have not been donated. After all this inventory comes into her home, a faithful corps of volunteers sort it by size and gender. Toys and other gifts are sorted by category. Now comes the task of filling the orders for each family. One at a time, a volunteer takes a plastic bag — not the traditional Christmas basket of lore, which wouldn’t hold all the items anyway. The volunteer takes the order describing one family, goes to the stockpile and selects the items that are on the list. If something can’t be found and funds are available, Cleta goes out and buys what the child wants. The bags then move to the packing area where another group of volunteers gift wrap each item, put a gift tag on it with the family member’s name and place each item back in the bag. Getting the things to each family requires another set of logistics. Some packages are taken to the Community School gym where families can pick them up on a certain day. Others are taken to the churches that provided the names where, often, they are delivered to the family’s door. Every year, at the last minute, someone calls Cleta to tell her of another family. “I don’t turn anyone away,” she said. Cleta fills the order herself and calls the individual who contacted her to pick it up at her house. “Everybody gets all new stuff now,” she said. “When we first started we collected used clothing and stuffed animals — just so they would have something under their tree. But now it’s all new.” Somehow the community gets wind that all this is going on at Cleta’s home. “Some people show up at her door and say ‘Just give me one family and I’ll buy all the items for that family,’ ” she said. “They always return with all the clothes and toys on the list. I’m never disappointed.” The Pacific Agape house provides all the food for these Christmas dinners, plus, when they have enough, a week’s worth of groceries. Did I mention that Cleta did not have the background of a corporate mover and shaker. Instead, she had a really good life and wants to give something to the community. If you have a hankering to help, Cleta says she needs new clothing, toys, gifts for infants, preschoolers, school-aged children and teens. “Cash donations are always needed and put to good use,” she said. For more information, or to make a contribution, contact Cleta Null, 636-742-2244, Debbie Kelley, 636-675-0444, or Brenda McDaniel, 636-271-5315.

BLUFFS CONTINUED FROM 5U

Schaper hears on her tours are why is the sand so white at Pacific and why are the cliffs so sheer? The color of the sand question is her favorite. The sand has been washed for 450 million years and the river cut down the bluffs over that period of time. The bluffs within the city limits of Pacific were cut back by mining or for Route 66 excavation. But other stretches of the outcrop still show the distinctive lines of the river sculpting. Currently our sand, which has traditionally been used for glass because of its purity, is being used in hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to get natural gas out of shale. “Water is pumped down at high pressure to crack the shale to get the gas out and the silica sand — called the proppant in this use — is pumped in to hold the crack open,” Schaper said. The silica sand is perfect for this use because it is naturally rounded. “It is almost as good a sphere as you can get anywhere in nature,” the geologist said. “It is strong, has the right shape and is relatively cheap.” “Fracking shale for natural gas might not be the most interesting point to

some visitors when they’re looking at our bluffs,” Schaper said. “But it requires huge amounts of silica sand and we’re sitting on top of a lot of it.” Schaper is constantly reminded that people don’t know much about the sand bluffs or the caves as she conducts geology field trips to the area. The Alpine Shop in Kirkwood sets up the tours and Schaper acts as guide and resident geologist. “Basically I want people to understand the geology of the area and how the sand was formed in an inland sea,” she said. “Because of how it was formed it has become economically valuable to us.” Always the student, Schaper also attends the tours that the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) does for outreach geology bringing

teachers to the area. Art Hebrank, site administrator for Federal Mill and Mine Complex No. 3 in Park Hill, leads the DNR tours. “This is the old St. Joe Lead Company east of Flat River and De Soto, near Bonne Terre in St. Francois County,” she said. Schaper, who is currently employed as assistant editor of the River Hills Traveler, taught creative writing at a junior college for 10 years, served as receptionist for state park visitor centers for the same period, and currently serves on the Franklin County Tourism Commission. The greatest benefit to Pacific and the area of the white silica sand bluffs is that they are a natural landmark, hardly rivaled in Missouri. The best place to view the exposure is driving

north on Highway F, south of Pacific. “As you drive through the cut south of town, you can see the entire water marks left by the river,” she said. “It looks like a ring on a bathtub.” Another good vantage point to view the bluffs is rafting or canoeing on the Meramec River from Pacific Palisades to Allenton. “You are traveling along right against those 20-foot and 50-foot bluffs,” she said. “It’s awesome.” Looking at the bluffs is not the only thing that offers visitors something to photograph and write home about, Schaper said. “I’d invite visitors to get a lunch-to-go and park on top of Blackburn Park to look out over the expanse,” Schaper said. “You look out over the river valley and you also see the sand bluffs.”

ROBBERY CONTINUED FROM 5U

As the Christmas season approaches, would-be robbers and burglars become more desperate and more brazen, he said. “I would remind citizens to be careful and take security measures for their own safety and for their property,” Mansell said. “It would be a good idea for businesses Students and staff of Coleman Elementary wore pink and formed a human pink ribto put in alarms and security cameras.

Cold Snap Doesn’t Deter Flea Market Customers By Pauline Masson Pacific Editor

An early November cold snap and predictions of rain did not keep shoppers away from this past Saturday’s St. Louis Street flea market. The weather did keep some vendors from bringing their wares, but people turned out looking for good buys. The bimonthly market has previously attracted enough vendors to fill up the street on both sides and down the center from First to Second Street. “We almost didn’t set up because they kept saying it was going to rain,” said Sheri Jones, whose booth was in front of Larry Mueller’s Gold Shield store at Second and St. Louis streets. “But as it turns out it’s a good day for chili,” she said. “I’ve sold at least 2 gallons.” One after another vendor told the same story. “I wish there were more vendors,” said Jay Jameson of St. Peters, who was making his first visit to Pacific after learning about the event on Craig’s List. Jameson set up tables lined with rings. “There are plenty of customers,” Jameson said. “So far I’ve done remarkably well.” Mary Thomure, who lives in Indian Hills, took off her black knit gloves to try on a ring. “I’m a browser,” she said. “I can’t stay away.” She wasn’t alone. Other customers donned sweaters and coats with hoods to check out the stacks of merchandise to keep vendors busy. Brandon Seals, 6, and his sister Alyssa, 7, came looking for video games that would play in their PlayStation 2. “I like this one, but it only plays on X Box,” said Brandon, putting a CD back on the pile. Eventually, Brandon selected Midnight Club. It takes 90 minutes to complete the game. “It’s really for two. We’ll play it together,” he said, nodding toward Alyssa. The youngsters are the children of Denise Jolly and David Seals. They attend Zitzman Elementary School and spend most weekends with their grandmother, Betty Littleton, who lives on Fifth Street. “It seemed like a good outing to bring them over to the flea market,” Littleton said. “They knew what they were looking for.” Melissa Williams and her sister, Tina Pittman, who formerly had a booth in an antique mall and had decided to get out of the business, set up two tables with a mix

of furry critters in Christmas outfits, home décor pieces and things that had come out of their homes. “It’s just our stuff,” Williams said. Among their “stuff” was one of the bona fide antiques of the day, a Victorian plush toy, a stuffed dog that their parents gave to Pittman 25 years ago. They paid $200 for it at the time. “It was very old even then,” Pittman said. The only markings on the apparatus, which may double as a riding toy, are the words “Made in England,” on the tires. They were asking $75 for it and at 11 a.m., halfway through the 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. sale, they had no takers. Bob Mueller and Jim Davis, regular vendors at the St. Louis Street events, offered an eclectic mix of old books, belt buckles, old crocks, guitars, new items and used toys. Most of their items were well priced to move. Mueller who formerly operated the Pacific Auction House — and has a well-known collection of John Wayne memorabilia that he has taken to his home since the auction closed — said he still has a couple of rental spaces filled with items from the auction house that he’s ready to get rid of. “I’m actually trying to get out of the business,” he said. Carol Johnson, every vendor’s dream customer, was all smiles carrying two large white plastic bags bulging with soft items. “They’re maternity clothes in size small and medium,” she said. “Sheri is expecting.” Johnson’s daughter Sheri Walter lives in Sigonella, Italy, where her husband Sean Walter is chief of operations at the large Naval Air Station on a three-year assignment. Johnson says her daughter, living near the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, does not have access to the kind of stores she’d find in America. “It takes seven days for a package to get there,” she said. “I can’t wait for her to try these on.” At the end of the street, Dan Murphy and Harry Mayle of Eureka were first timers, but were having such a good day they would do it again. “I’d say we’ve done very well,” Duncan said. “There weren’t a lot of vendors, but there was a steady supply of customers and we think there’ll be more.” The Downtown Pacific Merchants Association sponsored the event, the fourth in 2012.

Daughter Charged In Theft At Dad’s Business

The daughter of I-44 Truck Center owner Mark Robbins was one of two individuals arrested last week after an incident at his business. According to the St. Clair Police Department, felony burglary and theft/stealing charges were issued on 17-year-old Jessica Robbins, of St. Clair, and 20-year-old Jacob Mahan, of Pacific. The Class C felony charges stem from an alleged robbery that took place at the truck center, 705 N. Service Road West, last Tuesday, Oct. 30. Police Chief Bill Hammack said officers were dispatched to that location at 11:17 p.m. for a burglary that had been interrupted. While law enforcement was responding, they were notified that Mark Robbins had interrupted the burglary and had followed a suspect vehicle to the westbound I-44 rest area. At the rest area, Hammack said an undetermined but “large amount” of money was found that allegedly had been taken from the

About a year after it first came up for discussion, the St. Clair Board of Aldermen passed an ordinance Monday night establishing new rules and regulations for a rental occupancy permit program within the city. The issue first was brought to the city’s planning and zoning table last fall and since then was volleyed back and forth between the planners and aldermen to tweak the language and finalize the procedures included. Compliance with the ordinance will be voluntary until Oct. 1, 2013, at which time it will become mandatory. “Planning and zoning had this before them for (several) months,” Mayor Ron Blum said in introducing the ordinance for discussion among the aldermen Monday night.

Flag Bearer St. Clair High School senior quarterback Kyle Juergens carries the St. Clair flag as he leads the Bulldogs onto the football field Monday night in Sullivan. St. Clair battled the Eagles on the gridiron in the Class 4A District 3 championship game. The contest lived up to its hype as the second-seeded Bulldogs battled the top-seeded and undefeated Eagles through the four quarters before falling 3217. St. Clair ended its season with a 10-2 record with both losses coming to Sullivan. The Eagles are 12-0 and advance to the next round of the MSHSAA playoffs on Saturday.

The filing period for individuals seeking elected positions within the St. Clair city limits will begin Dec. 12. Information given to the board of aldermen last month states the 2013 election calendar gives people a five-week window to declare their candidacy. Filing closes on Jan. 15, 2013. Four municipal positions will be on the ballot — mayor, two aldermen and judge. For the first time, the next mayoral term will be four years. Voters in 2011 decided to expand the term from the current two years beginning in 2013. Mayor Ron Blum currently is in his third two-year term as St. Clair’s leader. One alderman term in each of the city’s two wards will be up. In Ward 1, Zach Fuchs was appointed at the beginning of the year to fill the unexpired term of Connie Marrocco, who resigned in December 2011. Unopposed, he won re-election this past April to serve the remaining year. His and Barb McGlenn’s first two-year term will expire. McGlenn represents the second ward. Earlier this year, Ward 1’s Na-

than Tate and Ward 2’s Travis Dierker ran unopposed for their seats. Also, City Collector Lynne Huff defeated three challengers to keep her position. Municipal Court Judge A. David Arand was appointed by Blum to fill out the unexpired term of longtime judge Nick Gasaway late last year, and, like Fuchs, won re-election in April running unopposed for the final year of the term. Gasaway had reached the staterequired retirement age of 75 and was forced to step down. The judge’s position is a twoyear term. The election is scheduled for April 2. Promotion In other business from late last month, city employee Nick Williams was promoted to wastewater system supervisor. In conjunction with the promotion, he received a salary increase to $17.89 per hour. “The administration recommends a change in his employment status,” City Administrator Rick Childers said. The motion unanimously was approved. “He is a dedicated employee,” Blum said in supporting the promotion. “He is a good, all-around • See Filling Page 2S

RENTAL CONTINUED FROM 1S

“There have been numerous discussions, decisions and compromises. “It has been run through the washing machine several times.” When Blum asked if City Administrator Rick Childers had anything to add regarding the ordinance and its details, Childers responded by saying, “I believe this has been discussed at length.” The aldermen had no questions on Monday, and the ordinance quickly was passed unanimously. City Inspector Jeremy Crowe and Ward 2 Alderman Travis Dierker, who also serves as a member of the planning and zoning board, both gave a sigh of relief when the vote was taken. Both of those men, as well as members of the city’s planning and zoning board, have been instrumental in formulating the rental occupancy permit program. The aldermen first reviewed a draft of the ordinance in September after City Attorney Kurt Voss had taken final recommendations from the planners. The aldermen kicked it back to planning and zoning after Chairman Myrna Turner wanted to review it one more time as prepared. The planning board again reviewed the document during its October meeting, and gave its final blessing. Later in October, Voss told the aldermen that the proposed ordinance should be ready for final review

and potential adoption this month. The Ordinance The planners spent nine months creating the rules and regulations for the permit program, which focuses on minimum housing and life-safety standards for rental units within the city limits. In July, the panel originally voted to send the rules and regulations to the board of aldermen. In August, the aldermen conducted a public hearing on the proposed regulations after the planners conducted a public hearing of their own in June. In September, after Voss created the draft ordinance, the aldermen put the ball back in the planners’ court after Turner requested her group give it the final review. So, the board went through the draft and questions raised about it from Crowe. The ordinance basically targets rental units in an effort to upgrade the standards within the city limits. The majority of the regulations follow already established city ordinances. Current minimum housing standards for St. Clair residents are included in Chapter 12-1/2, Article II of the city’s code of ordinances. Those minimum standards include sections on sanitary facilities and conditions; food preparation facilities; living space requirements; heating and cooling requirements; lead-based paint compliance; and structural condi-

tion and safety. Minimum life-safety standards target structural safety, electrical safety, fire safety, carbon monoxide safety and general safety. Those standards are outlined in Chapter 6-61 of the city’s code of ordinances which concern the definition of a dangerous building. The city also has adopted the updated 2009 International Property Maintenance Code. Planning board members as well as Crowe have said the main idea behind revising the program is making sure residences are safe for each occupant who lives in them while providing a way for the city to enforce that safety. Fines are built into the penalty portion of the program as are property inspections. There are also fees to apply for the inspections as well as to have them recorded at city hall. Permit Program A $25 fee will be charged for each inspection, and a $5 recording fee will be assessed each time a dwelling changes occupants. Landlords will need to keep the city’s building department informed of any change in tenants as well as scheduling an inspection if one is needed. Failure to obey the regulations could result in financial penalties of up to $100 per day. An inspector will examine the interior and exterior of the property for structural soundness as well as safety issues.

A Dynamic Duo in the Making I want to preface this column by saying anything written in this space this week cannot be held against me by anyone, especially my wife. Let me also say in conjunction with the above statement that in 31-plus years of marriage I never have considered wandering nor do I ever plan to do so in the future. ... However, I write those two sentences first so I can now state this: Having a grandson around is like having a chick magnet in your possession. My wife and I just returned from a weeklong visit to Texas, where our new addition arrived in late September. We got there on his onemonth birthday and stayed through Halloween week. We returned on Sunday. While in Texas, we had an awesome time fussing over our new family member. Being first-time grandparents, it was a very special time for Nancy and me, and we immensely enjoyed and cherished every moment there. Being a grandfather is better than I thought it would be — if that is possible. There truly are not many things better in life. Ah, the fountain of youth! Being first-timers themselves, our daughter, Rachelle, and son-in-law, Charles, are learning the ropes of parenthood. They are off to a great start, but also are going through the frustrations of how to handle crying spells, poopy diapers, feeding schedules and a big lack of sleep. Charlie also is juggling being a working man, a newspaper editor no less, as well as being a new dad. Of course, since the news game never quiets down, he published his weekly newspaper, handled other office duties and ran ragged between home and the office getting things done. In between all that, the five of us managed to do a little sightseeing. My daughter was quite anxious to get out of the house for a bit during the week since she had the baby help. So, one of our field trips was to the

Yours truly holds grandson Khalen along the San Antonio Riverwalk on Halloween. Missourian Photo. Riverwalk in San Antonio. The Riverwalk features plenty of shops, restaurants and other things to see and do. So, it also features plenty of people. Dynamic Duo While cruising the downtown area on foot via the Riverwalk, which is actually along the San Antonio River near the Alamo, we stopped for an early dinner at one of the restaurants. It was Oct. 31, or Halloween. Of course, grandson Khalen — dressed in an orange outfit and Halloween jack-o’lantern hat for the holiday — decided to cry when our food arrived. He has been blessed with a good set of lungs. So, being the proud granddad I am, I said I would hold him while the others ate. So, I took him, left the table and quieted him through walking, bouncing and talking. I even got a smile or two out of him as well as the occa-

sional “coo.” I think he drooled a little, too. And the women came out of the woodwork. While I was strolling along the Riverwalk taking care of my new little buddy, females were attracted to us like ants to a picnic. Several, both older and younger than I, came over to admire the dynamic duo. “He’s sooooooo cute!” one woman said to another as they walked up to us. That’s when I made my big mistake. “Awwww. Thanks,” I said, adding. “And what do you think of my grandson?” Oops. Despite that error in judgment, I quickly learned that no pickup lines would be necessary under these circumstances, not that I know any in the first place. Members of the fairer sex came up to us and didn’t even wait for me to speak. In fact, I didn’t

even have to speak. And they stayed even when I did speak. They smiled, got pretty darn close and even touched my arm a few times while spending several moments with us before moving on. I haven’t been this popular with women since I had a “date” with all of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders about 29 years ago. Yes, that really happened. Ask Nancy. Yes, we were married then. And I thought walking a dog was supposed to be one of the great attractions for the opposite sex. At any rate, this admiration happened more than once as Khalen and I basked in the spotlight until my wife finished her meal and ruined my fun. She pretended to be concerned about me and my food, but I know what her concerns really were. Party-pooper! I told Khalen to get used to girls in his life acting like my wife just had. Shortly thereafter, my daughter needed to feed her son, so she and Charlie went one way for a while as Nancy and I went the other. Nancy and I continued to browse shops — without little Khalen to keep us company and at the center of attention. And that ended up being a crying shame as soon we passed — yes, only passed — the local Hooters restaurant, complete with the infamous waitresses who on this day were dressed in, shall we say, unique Halloween costumes instead of their classic orange and white outfits. A couple of these gals were outside the establishment trying to “lure” customers inside. Just think if I would have had my little grandson with me instead of my wife! I probably would have been the one doing some cooing. ... Take note that I said “coo,” not “drool.” Trick or treat? As always, thanks for reading — and especially for remembering those first two essential sentences as you continued.

Chamber Sponsors Window Contest Business owners have the opportunity to get into the Christmas spirit by participating in the St. Clair Area Chamber of Commerce’s holiday window painting contest. Resurrected last year by the Chamber, the Merchants Committee again is sponsoring the friendly competition, which encourages businesses along Main Street and in other locations to decorate their storefront windows by painting them in a holiday theme. “Can you believe it’s almost Christmas?” St. Clair Chamber Executive Director Angela Crawford said. “Wouldn’t it be great to have every storefront window in St. Clair painted? Let’s get into the holiday spirit.” The deadline to register is Friday. Registrations are being accepted through the Chamber office. Forms are online at www.stclairmo.com. Students involved in various clubs at St. Clair High School have volunteered to help paint windows. Crawford said at least seven windows

can be decorated with the assistance of the students on a first-come, first-served basis. Windows also can be painted by employees. The businesses must supply paint, and windows must feature some kind of holiday theme. No props, lights or other decor can be added for the window to be eligible for prizes. The winner will receive a one-year complimentary membership to the St. Clair Chamber, free booth rental at the planned St. Clair Business Expo next year and $100 in Chamber Bucks. The runner-up will get one prepaid meal ticket to all 2013 Chamber membership lunches and $50 in Chamber Bucks. The Chamber Bucks are provided by Farmers & Merchants Bank and are good at participating area businesses. Windows must be finished by Tuesday, Nov. 20. Judging will take place on Dec. 8. Participants do not need to be present to win. For more information, contact the St. Clair Chamber.

Missouri Secretary of State Was Franklin County Native By Sue Blesi

Franklin County Historian

The one-room rural schools that once dotted the countryside can be credited with imparting the three R’s to future teachers, doctors, lawyers, ministers, politicians, writers and advanced scholars, some of whom earned a place in history beyond the borders of Franklin County. Charles U. Becker was a product of the Cedar Fork community and of the original Maupin School, a tiny log structure once located five miles south of New Haven. Born Oct. 21, 1868, he was the oldest child of Prussian immigrant Herman Becker and his wife, Sarah E. (Maupin). Charles taught in the one-room Detmold School for a couple of years. A 1890 issue of the Republican Tribune reported that his school was the only one in that section that did not close for Thanksgiving. Young Charles was 11 years old in the 1880 Lyon Township census. His younger siblings were listed as Mary E. Becker, 9; Nancy Ellen, 8; William H., 6; John Mosias, 4; and Edward, 6 months. Three more were born later, but their names have not yet been found. Becker has remained under the radar in Franklin County historical circles for years, but he was mentioned in the 1968 Franklin County Historical Review. That is where I came upon his name and learned that Secretary of State Becker had been born in Franklin County. Despite his success, very little information on Becker could be located through area historical societies Knowing he was secretary of state from 1921 to 1933, I checked a couple of volumes for the typical biographical summary, only to learn those accounts provided minimal information on his early years. I did learn he had served as a state representative from Polk County from 1914 to 1919. The reason Becker largely has been overlooked in Franklin County history is because he was elected from Polk County where he eventually settled. Perusing the Internet in search of more, I checked with the Polk County Historical Society and learned that William Kollenbach had made a presentation on Becker to their organization. A white pages search yielded a phone number for Kollenbach, and we had a nice discussion. He sent me a copy of an in-depth St. Louis Star article featuring Becker during his unsuccessful run for governor. Becker was the grandson of Franklin County pioneer Mosias Maupin and a nephew of Col. Amos W. Maupin, both well known to area historical circles. A. W. Maupin, a Civil War veteran who was also sheriff during that unsettled era, was Becker’s childhood idol. Becker was a multifaceted politician and spent 16 years farming at Wishart, Mo., in Polk County, reportedly writing 5,000 words a day. He produced articles on outdoor life, short and long fiction stories for magazines, and dime novels. Much of his work was of the Wild West genre. A couple of his titles were “Breaking in a Lawyer,” which was

Man Hurt In Accident

A St. Louis man suffered minor injuries on Monday afternoon when he was involved in a one-vehicle accident on Highway K near New Hope Church Road. The Missouri Highway Patrol stated that Marlin W. Sasseen, 75, was taken to Mercy Hospital Washington by St. Clair Ambulance following the 1:33 p.m. crash. According to the patrol, Sasseen was southbound on Highway K in a 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis when he traveled off the right side of the road at the New Hope Church Road intersection and struck a tree. He was wearing a safety belt. Damage to the car was moderate.

History of Franklin County

This official photograph of Franklin County native Charles U. Becker is printed in several Missouri official manuals from when he served as secretary of Submitted Photo. state. published in a 1930 edition of Wild West Stories and Complete Novel Magazine, and “A House in Disorder,” a 172page book. While teaching at Detmold, he went to Kansas City to visit an uncle who was an admirer of William Rockhill Nelson, a journalist who founded the Kansas City Star. Charles Becker argued with the uncle and the outcome was a wager that anyone who could teach school could do ordinary newspaper work. That was the impetus for a new career. He went to work doing police reporting for the Kansas City Mail and was soon hired by the Kansas City Star, eventually promoted to editor. In 1901, he quit his job and

went to Beaumont, Texas, following the oil boom. It’s a good thing he had bought a roundtrip ticket because he headed back to Polk County three months later. He moved into an empty log cabin on the family farm and wrote and read and wrote some more. He abandoned the farm for a yearlong stint as commercial editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, but returned again to the farm. Over the years he had made friends with many country editors, and their support helped him win a legislative seat in 1914. When he ran for governor in 1934, he was hit with a barrage of criticism because he had placed large amounts of state license money in banks that failed. Becker had a modest home in Jefferson City and, as late as 1934, did not have an automobile, choosing to ride the streetcar to the Capitol daily. He married Mary B. Tolson of Kirksville on May 13, 1920. They had one daughter, Mary Jane Becker, to whom he was devoted. His only recreation was fishing and he said he fished every “decent” stream in the state. Checking for his parents’ graves in Franklin County proved fruitless, but I eventually located them at Morrisville Cemetery in Polk County. I don’t know when his parents left Franklin County or whether any of his siblings might have stayed here. Nor do I know how they might be related to the many other Beckers in this county. Herman died on Jan. 30, 1906, and Sarah Elizabeth died on March 1, 1917. Charles U. Becker’s grave also is listed in this cemetery, and I believe he originally was buried at Morrisville, but his body may have been moved. An impressive memorial stone has been erected in the Riverview Cemetery in Jefferson City. He died on May 21, 1934, of cirrhosis of the liver in a St. Joseph, Mo., hospital. He was 65 years old.

Sullivan Man Dies in Crash A Sullivan man who police say was driving in the wrong direction on Interstate 44 in Phelps County was killed on Saturday morning when his vehicle struck an oncoming semitrailer. Fifty-year-old John O’Neal was killed in the crash that occurred at 1:09 a.m. on Nov. 3 in the westbound lanes of I-44 near the 190.6 mile marker. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:25 a.m. by Phelps County Deputy Coroner Lenox James. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, O’Neal was driving a 1991 Buick Century eastbound in the westbound lanes of the interstate. A westbound 2001 Freightliner driven by Orville J. Hess, 65, of Salem, Ill., tried to avoid the oncoming car by swerving to the right and driving off the highway. The Buick struck the trailer of the semi and overturned. The crash also involved

a second semitrailer, a 2005 Freightliner driven by Ranjit S. Pelia, 24, of Winton, Calif. The patrol stated Pelia, also traveling westbound in the westbound lanes, attempted to avoid the accident by driving off the right side of the road. The two semitrailers also overturned. O’Neal, who was not wearing a safety belt, was ejected. Pelia was transported to Phelps County Regional

Medical Center with minor injuries. It is unknown whether he was wearing a safety belt. Hess, who was wearing a safety belt, was not injured. The Buick and the 2001 Freightliner were totaled. Damage to the 2005 Freightliner was moderate. The patrol’s online report did not state a reason why O’Neal was traveling in the wrong direction.

NTERNATIONAL ATIONAL ND ISSOURI EWS

NEW YORK (AP) — From trying to figure out where people would live to how they would be able to vote and when all the lights will finally come on, government officials are still facing multiple fronts in the efforts to recover from Superstorm Sandy. All that, and there’s another storm coming. Where to house potentially tens of thousands of people left homeless by the storm is the most pressing crisis, as cold weather sets in. “It’s not going to be a simple task. It’s going to be one of the most complicated and long-term recovery efforts in U.S. history,” said Mark Merritt, president of Witt Associates, a Washington crisis management consulting firm founded by former Federal Emergency Management Agency director James Lee Witt. FEMA said it has already dispensed close to $200 million in emergency housing assistance and has put 34,000 people in New York and New Jersey up in hotels and motels. But local, state and federal officials have yet to lay out a specific, comprehensive plan for finding them long-term places to live. And given the scarcity and high cost of housing there and the lack of open space, it could prove a monumental undertaking. Sandy killed more 100 people in 10 states but vented the worst of its fury on New Jersey and New York. A week after the storm slammed the mid-Atlantic and the Northeast, more than 1 million homes and businesses remained without power. Another storm — a nor’easter packing heavy rain and gusts of 50 to 60 mph — was headed for the area Wednesday, threatening more flooding and power outages that could undo some of the repairs made in the past few days. With the temperatures dropping into

the 30s overnight, people in dark, unheated homes were urged to go to overnight shelters or daytime warming centers. Because so many people have been displaced by the storm, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order allowing people to vote in Tuesday’s statewide and presidential elections at any polling place in the state. New Jersey had already taken similar measures. “Just because you are displaced doesn’t mean you are disenfranchised,” Cuomo said. “Compared to what we have had to deal with in the past week, this will be a walk in the park when it comes to voting.” As for long-term housing for the homeless, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Monday that the government is looking into using everything from hotels and motels to FEMA trailers and prefab homes. “Given the extent of need, no option is off the table,” she said. “All of them will have some place in this puzzle.” Officials have yet to even establish the magnitude of the problem. In New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday that officials are going door-to-door in hard-hit areas to assess the need for shelter. He said the worst-case estimate is 40,000 people, half of them in public housing. But he said as many as 20,000 will probably get their heat and power back within a few days. Ultimately, the number of people who need longer-term housing could be under 10,000, he said. In New Jersey, state officials said they are still trying to figure out how many people will need long-term housing. At least 4,000 residents were in New Jersey shelters.

Missouri Plays Role in Fracking With Silica Sand ST. LOUIS (AP) — Missouri drillers haven’t been able to take advantage of the hydraulic fracturing revolution that has driven down natural gas prices across the country, but other companies are experiencing an economic heyday by supplying an ingredient that is playing a big role in the fracking boom. The Show-Me State doesn’t have vast reserves of natural gas, but it does have huge quantities of nearly pure silica sand, which is in wide demand among energy producers who use the tiny granules to crack shale rock and allow oil and natural gas to escape. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Sunday that several companies across eastern Missouri have emerged as suppliers of socalled frack sand. Among them is Mississippi Sand LLC, formed in 2008 by a group of partners including Fred Weber Inc., a road construction company that later sold its interest in the sand company but still supplies raw sandstone from its quarry just south of Festus. A 65-foot layer of yellowish rock inside the quarry is easily identifiable from the edge of a large open pit. Fifty-ton trucks haul a load of clumpy sandstone up a dirt road every few minutes and deposit it at a processing plant at the quarry.

“When they dump it, that’s when we start with it,” Mississippi Sand plant manager Mike Cochran says. Every truckload goes through a series of machines linked by conveyers. Clumpy sandstone is broken into smaller bits at each stop, eventually into tiny spherical grain that are washed and dried to remove almost all of the moisture. After that, they’re run through mesh screens that sort the sand by grain size. Every hour, an employee carries a plastic bag full of sand to a small lab in a nearby metal building to be tested to make sure the granules meet American Petroleum Institute specifications. The hydraulic fracturing — or fracking — process involves injecting huge quantities of water and sand and chemicals into the ground under high pressure to break apart shale rock and release natural gas. “We’ve been fracking wells forever,” said Shari DunnNorman, associate professor of petroleum engineering at Missouri S&T University in Rolla. “The technology really was perfected in the ‘80s or even the late 1970s.” Recent advances have made the technology more economical for oil and gas producers, allowing it to be deployed widely. It has trig-

gered a boom that has driven down natural gas prices. The eastern Missouri sand is nearly pure silica, or quartz, which allows it to maintain its integrity thousands of feet below ground. “Mother Nature has done a lot of work on this material,” said Thomas Dolley, a mineral commodity specialist for the U.S. Geological Survey. The sand “is not perfectly round, but it’s as good as you’re going to get.” The sand is in the St. Peter Sandstone, a geologic formation created by a shallow inland sea that covered parts of the country’s midsection hundreds of millions of years ago. The layer of rock crumbles easily and extends from Minnesota to Arkansas. Dolley said there are probably at least 100 mines in the Midwest that produce the sand, but the actual number could be twice that. A metric ton of the sand sells for about $40 to $50, Dolley said, but that doesn’t include transportation costs that can push the total cost for an oil or gas producer to more than $200 a ton. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources said more than 65 million tons of sand, worth an estimated $2 billion, have been sold since mining of the St. Peter Sandstone in Missouri began in the 1870s.

St. Louis Seeking Best Ideas For the Use of Vacant Land ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis has too many vacant lots and no solid plans for what to do with them, so City Hall and Washington University are teaming up for a contest aimed at enlisting the public’s help in solving the dilemma. The “Sustainable Land Lab” contest will hand over four vacant lots in north St. Louis for two years to those who come up with the best ideas to put them to productive use, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Organizers expect to hear from artists, designers, entrepreneurs, urban farmers and others. City officials hope they will generate ideas that can be used throughout the city. “This is not just an ideas competition,” said Catherine Werner, sustainability director for the city. “We’re looking for practical demonstrations on the sites, and hopefully things that can be replicated down the road in other places.” The St. Louis Land Reutilization Authority, which takes over real estate if taxes go unpaid, has nearly 10,000 properties in its inventory. Most of them are

vacant land. Private owners possess thousands of other parcels. There are some success stories. Some vacant land has become community gardens. Some get purchased by neighbors for use as side yards. Others are placed together for larger develop-

Teenager Gets Probation in Hate Crime Case JACKSON, Mo. (AP) — A southeast Missouri teenager has been sentenced to five years of probation for a hate crime assault. The Southeast Missourian reports that the sentence was handed down Monday for 17-year-old Mercedes Ayers of Cape Girardeau. She pleaded guilty last month. In exchange, Cape Girardeau County prosecutors dropped a charge of first-degree burglary. In her guilty plea, Ayers admitted beating a neighbor, Jeana Terry, in July. She said the beating was motivated in part by Terry’s sexual orientation. Terry is a lesbian.

ments. The Land Lab seeks to find more new ideas and find new life for the lots more quickly. “I feel pretty strongly that we’ll see lots of creative minds come out of the woodwork,” said Phil Valko, director of sustainability at Washington University. Organizers say the focus will be on ideas that are environmentally and economically sustainable as well as repeatable. The two-year lease is designed to let the winners see how their projects evolve and how the market responds and to give curious people the chance to check it out, Werner said. Initial proposals for one of six empty lots are due in December and will be narrowed in three rounds of presentations and judging. Up to four winners will be chosen in April. They’ll $5,000 in seed money in addition to the two-year lease. Organizers hope to run similar competitions in other neighborhoods. Newspapers in Education Call for more informatiion

Good News for East Coast: Storm Weaker Than Expected NEW YORK (AP) — Weather experts had good news for beleaguered northeast coastal residents Tuesday: A new storm that threatened to complicate Hurricane Sandy cleanup efforts on Wednesday now looks like it will be weaker than expected. As the storm moves up the Atlantic coast from Florida it now is expected to veer farther offshore than earlier projections had indicated. Jeff Masters of the private weather service Weather Underground says that means less wind and rainfall on land. Even so, he said winds could still gust to 50 mph in New York and New Jersey Wednesday afternoon and evening. And Lauren Nash, a meteorologist from the National

Weather Service, said wind gusts might blow down tree limbs weakened from Sandy and cause more power out-

ages. On Wednesday night, gusts may occasionally reach 60 mph in coastal Connecticut and Long Island, she said.

Americans Face Prospect Of Status Quo Congress WASHINGTON (AP) — A barrage of negative ads, more than $2 billion in spending and endless campaign stops all come down to this: Americans likely will elect a Congress as divided as the one they’ve been ranting about for two years. In Tuesday’s voting, Republicans are poised to hold the 435-seat House, with Democrats expected to gain a small handful of seats at best from roughly 60 competitive races but fall well short of the net 25 needed for the majority. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, is poised to wield the gavel again. Senate Democrats are likely to maintain their narrow advantage as two Republican candidates’ clumsy comments about rape and abortion could cost the GOP Indiana and dampens its prospects of winning Missouri — two major roadblocks in the Republican path to the majority. Republicans hoped the math would work in their favor — Democrats are defending 23 seats, the GOP 10 — but solid Democratic recruits and the close presidential race, added to the GOP candidate stumbles may ensure that Nevada Sen. Harry Reid remains majority leader. “That’s extremely frustrating for what everyone thought was a Republican advantage,” Ron Bonjean, a Republican consultant and former top Capitol Hill aide, said of the developments in Indiana and Missouri. Ideological Chasm No matter who wins the presidency — President Barack Obama or Republican Mitt Romney — the nation’s chief executive will be dealing with a Congress no closer to bridging the ideological chasm and showing no inclination to end the months of dysfunction. Tea party numbers are certain to tick up in the Senate with Republican Ted Cruz heavily favored in Texas and Deb Fischer looking to grab the Nebraska seat. In the House, the movement that propelled the GOP to the majority in 2010 will be even more emboldened even if a few of the big-name tea partiers lose. Sal Russo, head of the Tea Party Express, likened the group to the anti-Vietnam War movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s that he said remade the Democratic Party. He envisions the same with the GOP. “In the sense that the anti-war movement brought out millions of people that had not been involved in politics and they became engaged in a material way,” Russo said in an interview as he headed to what he expects will be a victory party for Cruz in Texas. The Democratic Party, he insists, has never been the same and neither will the GOP after the influx of tea partiers. When the Senate votes are counted, moderate Republicans and Democrats from Massachusetts and Montana could be gone, leaving the chamber with just a handful of the lawmakers inclined to reach across the aisle. Republican Sen. Olympic Snowe of Maine decided to retire earlier this year, frustrated with the partisan gridlock in

Congress. New England’s three other GOP senators are New Hampshire’s Kelly Ayotte, Maine’s Susan Collins and Massachusetts’ Scott Brown, now an underdog against Democrat Elizabeth Warren in a race for the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s seat. “The few Republicans who are in office in New England are an endangered species,” said veteran Democratic strategist Dan Payne, who is working for independent Angus King. “Their party has shifted so far to the right.” King is favored to win the three-way race for Snowe’s seat. Impediment A Bloomberg poll in September found that 55 percent of Americans said Congress will continue to be an impediment no matter who is elected president. Just 32 percent said Congress would get the message and work together. Democratic strategist Steve McMahon said he worries that with a divided Congress “we can probably expect hyper partisanship and gridlock everywhere. It seems like Americans can expect more of the same.” The other certainty is neither Obama nor Romney will have much of a mandate based on the razor-thin presidential race and the likelihood that the majority party in the Senate will be nowhere near a filibusterproof majority. “Neither candidate will be able to claim that voters endorsed a clear and specific plan for balancing the budget because neither of them offered such a plan,” said John J. Pitney, a professor of American politics at Claremont McKenna College. Republican strategist Terry Holt said a newly elected president who has the will could put their mark on policy and make some significant changes. “But there is so much ideological division that you will have to risk your political life to get something done in the next Congress,” Holt said. “It is an all-or-nothing proposition by virtue of the divided nature of the country. You have to stick your neck out if you’re to get anything done.” Fiscal Cliff Weeks before the January inauguration, Congress will have to decide what to do about a $607 billion so-called fiscal cliff: the combination of expiring Bush-era tax cuts and automatic, across-the-board spending reductions to domestic and defense programs. Economists warn that no action will plunge the country into another recession. “At the end of the day, you have so many ticking time bombs,” said GOP strategist John Feehery. “Having just a complete gridlock is not an acceptable solution.” Congress may decide in the lame-duck session to delay the major decisions to early next year, especially if Romney wins the presidency. But they can’t put off economic decisions for too long. “The road to fiscal perdition is a cul-desac,” Pitney said.

Poll Problems Cropping Up in Spots Around U.S. WASHINGTON (AP) — Sporadic problems were reported Tuesday at polling places around the country, including a confrontation in Pennsylvania involving Republican inspectors over access to some polls and a lastminute court fight in Ohio over election software. One Florida elections office mistakenly told voters in robocalls the election was on Wednesday. Although the majority of complaints were simply long lines, the Election Protection coalition of civil rights and voting access groups said they had gotten some more serious calls among more than 35,000 received on a tollfree voter protection hotline. “’It’s already started and it’s busy,” said Barbara Arnwine, president of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. In Philadelphia, the Republican Party said 75 legally credentialed voting inspectors were removed from polling places in the heavily Democratic city, prompting the GOP to seek a court order providing them access. Local prosecutors were also looking into the reports. Democratic Party officials did not immediately return a message seeking comment. The battleground state of Ohio was the scene of yet another court battle, this one involving a lawsuit claiming voting software installed by the state could allow manipulation of ballots by non-election board officials. The lawsuit wants a judge to or-

der Ohio not to use the software — something state elections officials said would “unnecessarily thwart the smooth operation of the election.” The Florida robocall glitch occurred in Pinellas County, location of St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay. Officials said the calls intended for Monday were wrongly recycled Tuesday, telling possibly thousands of voters they had until “7 p.m. tomorrow” to vote, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Nancy Whitlock, spokeswoman for the county’s supervisor of elections, said officials immediately stopped the calls Tuesday morning when the problem was discovered and a second message went out telling voters to disregard the previous call. Elsewhere, the Election Protection coalition reported problems with ballot scanners in the Ohio cities of Cleveland, Dayton and Toledo; late-opening polling places in minority neighborhoods in Galveston, Texas; and some precincts in the Tampa, Fla., area where voters are being redirected to another polling place where they must cast a provisional ballot. Meanwhile, voters in several storm-ravaged areas in New York and New Jersey expressed relief and even elation at being able to vote at all, considering the devastation from Superstorm Sandy. Lines were long in Point Pleasant, N.J., where residents from the Jersey Shore communities of Point Pleasant Beach and Mantoloking had to cast their

ballots due to damage in their hometowns. Many people still have no power eight days after Sandy pummeled the shore. “Nothing is more important than voting. What is the connection between voting and this?” said Alex Shamis, a resident of hard-hit Staten Island, gesturing to his mud-filled home. Any voting problems are being closely monitored after months of legal and political battles over more voter ID restrictions and other laws, mostly fruitless hunts for supposedly ineligible people on voting rolls in many states and sustained claims that black and Hispanic voters are being targeted for intimidation and suppression. Michael Waldman, president of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, said even in states where the restrictive laws have been blocked or delayed, many people still think they are in effect. “The laws were struck down but the confusion remains,” Waldman said. Many of these issues could resurface in the courts after Tuesday, particularly if the race between President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, is too close to call or heads for a recount in states such as Ohio or Florida. The Justice Department was to have at least 780 observers at key polling places in 23 states to ensure compliance with the 1965 Voting Rights Act and look into any allegations of voter fraud.
