BACK IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS EIGHTY YEARS AGO MAY 25-31, 1934 • With Monettans asked to stop helping transients and directing them to the treatment center at the old YMCA, one wrote The Times to say, “The bum is one of America’s most forward problems. Told to get out of town, unable to get a ride, the bum walks into the next town even more hungry and at the point of exhaustion. There is no one to give him a kind word of welcome. Because he is a ‘bum,’ a nobody, therefore the man who is working cannot help him. Among these bums or transients are men, smart men, who have held good jobs in their hometowns, but during the dark ages of depression have lost these positions and are now on the road trying to find work. There is a large percentage of these fellows that are really honest, and deserving, so why give the transient that is really trying to do the right thing so much criticism?” • S.O. Elwell is the last member of the Eagle Post No. 492, Grand Army of the Republic, organized in 1890. There are 49 Civil War soldiers named who are buried in Monett cemeteries or nearby, and all 17 charter members of the Monett Post, worthy of flags on Decoration Day, May 30. SEVENTY YEARS AGO MAY 25-31. 1944 • Three telegraph offices in Monett, two at the Frisco Railroad and one at the Western Union office, celebrated the 100th anniversary of the invention of the telegraph, when the
first four-word message was send over 40 miles of wire between Washington D.C. and Baltimore, Md. on May 24, 1884. • Republican U.S. Senate candidate Charles Shaw of Clayton and GOP gubernatorial candidate Charles Ferguson of Willow Springs stopped in Monett to confer with M.E. Gillioz, who has for many years been a leader in the Republican party. SIXTY YEARS AGO MAY 25-31, 1954 • A record-setting 130 small fry Babe Ruths and Lou Gehrigs signed up for Little League play before the registration deadline. The first games will be played on June 8 and run to the All-Star Game on Sept. 3. • Mutterings of apprehension that “Is this agonna be another one of those years?” were somewhat silenced with the soaking rain on May 25 over most of Barry and Lawrence counties. The latest rain will prolong the local strawberry season by two or three days. FIFTY YEARS AGO MAY 25-31, 1964 • A one-year contract was completed by the Monett Board of Education on May 26 employing Ralph Scott, Monett High School science teacher, as superintendent of Monett schools for the 1965-66 school year. He replaces EE. Camp, who is retiring as superintendent after 23 years. • Monett has entered into an agreement with Wells Aluminum Inc., an aluminum extrusion firm with its parent company in northern Indiana,
Fading vestiges of the era of the steam locomotive which formerly chugged continually in and out of Monett were further reduced on May 25, 1954, when two overhead fuel supply tanks for the steam-driven engines were ripped from their towers in the Monett train yard and shipped out. The two tanks, each with a capacity of 20,000 gallons, were installed at Monett in the early 1920s. File photo/The Monett Times which will result in Monett securing a substantial new industry. A general obligation bond issue will be needed to fund construction. FORTY YEARS AGO MAY 25-31, 1974 • The Monett Kiwanis Club elected Dayton Mackey as the new president, succeeding Charles Kimbro. Mark Cooper was named first vice president. New officers take over in October. • An unusual initiative ordinance, placed before Monett voters by petition to stop construction of a new waste treatment plant, was defeated with 303 in favor and 1,401 against, losing in all five wards The next day, May 29, the Monett City Council voted to proceed
with construction “with all deliberate haste.” THIRTY YEARS AGO MAY 25-31, 1984 • With the 100th anniversary of Monett’s founding on Sept. 12, 1887 just a little over three years away, Mayor Floyd Stewart has asked for volunteers to serve on a Monett Centennial Committee. • Final exterior finish to the First National Mercantile Bank was applied during the week. The final finish is a rose beige textured material in block pattern to blend with the solar bronze tinted windows. Nine new windows were also installed on the east side. TWENTY YEARS AGO MAY 25-31, 1994 • Monett voters will
be asked to support a $4,060,000 bond issues to build a new high school in the Aug 2 election. Approval will ensure construction of the high school. Cost is estimated at $6 million. • In two weeks of effort, Brooks Construction sandblasted, painted and repaired the municipal swimming pool in Pierce City, readying the pool for opening day. TEN YEARS AGO MAY 25-31, 2004 • Glen and Sharon
Garrett of First State Bank of Purdy has pledged $50,000 to the Marionville Branch Library Building Fund. Cost of the proposed 5,900 square foot new branch library is $442,500. • The Lawrence County Historical Society Museum will open for its 10th season on May 30. New this season is a collection of items related to Marionville, which is celebrating its 150th birthday this summer.
ON THE COVER: Each day will begin at Inspiration Point, where campers and volunteers gather before the day’s activities get underway. “They have church services here,” said Roger Osborne, maintenance director for the camp. “It’s a great place to watch the storms come in.” The cross bears the names of each camper who has died.

Camp Barnabas gears up for busy summer Special needs camp serves 4,500 campers per year BY MELONIE ROBERTS firstname.lastname@example.org
For 20 years, Camp Barnabas has been helping children with special needs since it opened its cabin doors. Co-founded by Paul and Cyndy Teas, the inspiration came from one of their Kanankuk Kamp kids, Lauren Hauschild, who had been diagnosed with cancer in 1992. Along with chemotherapy, she also lost her leg and was fitted with a prosthetic. Lauren returned to camp the following year, but often found herself in the medical center unable to fully enjoy the camp experience. Cyndy, a registered nurse who was working at the camp, had plenty of time to talk with Lauren and learned one of the disappointments Lauren had been experiencing was a sense of isolation CONTINUED ON PAGE 6
Lauren’s WellHouse is a 7,000-square foot health care facility built on the ground of Camp Barnabas in 2011. Because of this facility and our volunteer medical teams to care for our campers and volunteers, the Barnabas experience is possible for children who could not attend camp otherwise. One of the most important facilities on site, Lauren’s WellHouse makes it possible for special-needs and chronically ill children to attend the camp. Melonie Robertsemail@example.com
Brass nameplates commemorate Camp Barnabas campers who have died since the camp was founded in 1994. Melonie Roberts/monett-times.com
Clifford Vick, with Reinhart Food Service, unloaded the first of many deliveries for the upcoming camping season. The truck will deliver to the camp a minimum of three times per week for the nine weeks of the camping season. The camp cooks serve 1,500 meals a week, not including snacks.

Barnabas: Brawner is now CEO after retirement of Paul and Cyndy Teas

that came from having her hair fall out from chemotherapy treatments and her leg removed to stop the spread of the disease. The Teas founded Camp Barnabas to serve children with special needs in an effort to “let kids be kids,” and enjoy the camping experience to its fullest. They held the first two camps at the Kanakuk Kamp site before purchasing Camp Soaring Hawk near Purdy. The couple’s vision included a site with all the amenities of a “regular camp,” including canoeing, inner tubing on Capps Creek, participating in the high ropes course, field games, arts and crafts, rifles, archery, fishing and other outdoor adventures geared for those with disabilities or chronic illnesses. The camp also incorporates a Christian aspect to its program, changing the lives of those with special needs and chronic illnesses, as well as the lives of all who come in contact with Barnabas: campers, volunteers, parents, staff
and donors. Camp Barnabas not only offers the full camping experience to those with disabilities or illness, but their siblings, too. “Often, siblings are overlooked in due to the constant demands that having a disabled child can bring into a family’s life,” Paul Teas said in a previous interview. “This is their opportunity to share the camping experience with other siblings.” In 2005, the camp gained national recognition through the airing of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, in which the ABC network stars of the show rebuilt the Teas family home on the grounds of Camp Barnabas. Due to the influx of donations, the Teas were able to expand the medical facility on the grounds. Recent additions include Lauren’s WellHouse, a medical facility that offers medical care personnel and the necessary equipment to serve the special-needs and chronically ill children who attend the camp. Named

These new restroom facilities, under construction, will be completed and ready to use by the time camp starts in May. Roger Osborne, maintenance director for the camp, is overseeing volunteers working on a number of projects in preparation for the camping season. Melonie Robertsemail@example.com for the same camper that inspired the founding of Camp Barnabas, Lauren’s WellHouse serves as a temporary home to two volunteer doctors and eight nurses during each week of camp. If needed, children can spend the night in a hospital-type setting under the watchful eyes of the medical staff. The facility serves over 1,300 campers annually. The camp underwent new direction this in 2013, upon the 2012 retirement of Paul and Cyndy Teas. Jason Brawner was named CEO. Brawner was with the camp prior to being named CEO and continues the traditions set forth by the Teas family. This year, a dome has
been put over the basketball court near the dining hall. “That’s where we stage campers and volunteers for lunch,” said Roger Osborne, full-time main-
tenance director for the camp. “You can’t serve 350 or 400 people at one time. We are also installing additional restrooms near the pool and an additional water station
so campers can fill their drink cups from a couple of locations in the camp this year.” Volunteers are also working to refurbish CONTINUED ON PAGE 8
Summertime gets hot, and moving around from one place to another on the grounds of Camp Barnabas near Purdy can stir up a thirst. This watering station, one of two on the grounds, allows campers and volunteers to refill their bottles with ice and water during the commute. Melonie Roberts/monett-times.com

some of the older cabins, repair plumbing and flush water lines in the coming days. Eight new water-efficient washer and dryer units have been installed in the laundry, which will cut down the water use from 45 gallons per load to seven gallons per load. “This is camp. Kids make messes,” Osborne said. “We have these available for house moms and volunteers to use.” The camp serves 1,500 meals and 900 snacks daily. Mike Mrosko, director of operations, offered some trivia about the food service department. • The camp kitchen serves 292 dozen eggs per week. • The first meal campers receive is smoked burgers. Camp cooks serve 736 burgers on the first night of camp. • Campers devour 240 pounds of mashed potatoes

in one meal. • The kitchen staff utilizes 226 loaves of bread per week on sandwiches and toast. • A total of 310 pounds of ground beef is used only on spaghetti and Shepherd’s Pie. • Campers are served pigs-in-a-blanket on the final night of their stay, with kitchen staff rolling out dough and making 1,000 of the tasty treats for the one occasion. • One batch of macaroni and cheese calls for 45 pounds of dry macaroni, two gallons of milk, 78 pounds of cheese and eight pounds of butter. • One individual is hired to ensure approximately
22 campers a year meals to accommodate dietary restrictions, whether it is wheat, gluten or dairy, three meals a day and snacks. • When the kitchen serves biscuits and gravy for breakfast, they use 15 gallons of gravy and 1,200 biscuits. • A total of 2,000 popsicles are served a week. • Due to storage restrictions, the food service company delivers three times a week, at an average cost of $1,700 per trip, for the entire nine week camping season. This year’s theme for campers is “Celebrate!” Party themes include: Barn-a-Cup, La Fiesta de Barnabas, Journey to
Atlantis and Birthday Bash. “There will be a party each night,” Osborne said. “We will have a lot of staffers coming in next week to help prepare for camp. We are also going to host three sessions at Camp Barnabas Table Rock, on Point 11 at Table Rock Lake.” Campers will have a minimum of one volunteer assigned to them for 23 hours a day. “There will be eight campers, eight Christ in Action volunteers and two staffers in each cabin,” Osborne said. “That’s 18 people per cabin. We will have a complete turnover in campers and volunteers each week for nine weeks.” Each day will begin at
Inspiration Point, where campers and volunteers gather before the day’s activities get underway. “They have inspirational meetings and church services here,” Osborne said. “It’s a great place to watch the storms come in. On the cross is the name of each camper who had died.” The cross is filled with brass name plates. This year will be the first that sessions have been held at Table Rock Lake. “We bought that property and there is a lot of work to be done before its ready for a full season,” Osborne said. “None of the cabins are wheelchair accessible and there is paving and pool work to be finished.
Campers there will have the same Barnabas experience but with different equipment.” Also changing this year is the location of Barnabas Prep classes. As students graduate this year and the nine-month life skills classes and training come to a close, staffers are working hard to relocate the furnishings and materials to a new house in Branson, near the Kanakuk Kamp grounds. When classes resume in September, the remaining students will transition to the new location while recent graduates interview for jobs, go to jobs already obtained, or go into supervised living situations, if necessary.

Middle-aged homebody’s future is a serious concern for family
EAR ABBY: Our niece “Bonnie” has severe attachment problems. She still lives in her parents’ home and is well into her 50s. Her father passed away several years ago, and her mother seems to be her only friend. Bonnie has never had a serious relationship and has spent her life at one job and with her parents. Vacations and holidays have been spent with them only. Bonnie rarely accepts an invitation unless her mom is invited, does not communicate unless we reach out to her first and is very private about the smallest details in her life. Her mother is aging and we are wondering how Bonnie will manage once her mom is gone. How do we approach someone who seriously needs help and guidance? — CARING AUNT IN PITTSBURGH DEAR CARING AUNT: I can think of two ways. The first would be to discuss this privately with Bonnie’s mother and ask if there is anything she would like you to do for her daughter in the event of a serious illness or her death. It is a legitimate question if Bonnie is unable to live independently, and her mother might
JEANNE PHILLIPS DEAR ABBY appreciate that you cared enough to ask. The second would be to reach out to Bonnie in the event that something does happen to her mother, and let her know that you love her and will be there for her if she needs you. Keep in mind that you cannot force help on anyone who is unwilling to accept it. DEAR ABBY: I’m 11 and in the sixth grade. I am very self-conscious. Every girl in my grade has a bigger chest than me, and I am feeling insecure because mine isn’t developed. I know I am young, but I want to fit in. Every day I feel horrible about myself. Can you help? — INSECURE 6TH GRADER DEAR INSECURE: I’ll try. No two people are alike, and our bodies do not develop at the same time. For some girls, it happens sooner and they begin to develop breasts as ear-
ly as age 9. For others, it doesn’t happen until they are in their teens. Your value should not be measured by your chest size. Believe me, the size of your IQ is far more important. The kind of person you are is more important. Big chests have a way of falling sooner or later. So work on your grades and your personality right now. If you do, in time you’ll not only catch up to these girls, you will surpass them in the qualities that matter most. You’re fine just the way you are.
DEAR ABBY: When spending thousands of dollars to attend a destination wedding, are you expected to give a gift to the bride and groom? — JENNIFER IN NEW YORK
DEAR JENNIFER: Yes, but after shelling out “thousands” to attend a wedding, it does not have to be an expensive one. A token gift to mark the occasion would be enough. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.
