BACK IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS EIGHTY YEARS AGO JUNE 1-7, 1934 • The Monett Junior Chamber of Commerce took on the long-haired and fully bearded House of David team in donkey baseball at the first night game ever seen in Monett, using lights provided by the visitors. Grover Cleveland Alexander, formerly with the Cards in St. Louis, pitched against Monett. According to the rules, the player had to be in contact with his donkey when he fielded a ball or when he put a runner out. The darn donkeys wouldn’t lead. Runners would be urging donkeys from base to base but getting nowhere. The spectators nearly choked with emotion that was a mixture of convulsing mirth and a nervous desire to help the players. • Monett firemen made a record practice run dousing a set fire in an alley at Tenth and Bond in under five minutes. Throngs of people out for an evening ride followed the firemen. A momentary power stutter caused the siren to start again, making some think there was a fire at the power plant. There was plenty of excitement in town for a short time and it gave the motorists some place to go. SEVENTY YEARS AGO JUNE 1-7, 1944 • Permanent committees for the promotion of Monett’s $300,000 postwar program of municipal and school improvements were named on June 2. Committees were set up for Kelly Creek flood control, promoting a new grade school building, promoting a new airport, creation of a soil conservation district, church rehabilitation and
renovation of store buildings. • Four years to the day that the Germans broke the Maginot Line and 48 hours after the fall of Rome, H-hour of D-Day came on June 6, the moment long awaited by the world democracies and so deeply and realistically feared by the warlords of Germany. Monett churches will observe D-Day with a special prayer service at 8 o’clock at the First Baptist Church. SIXTY YEARS AGO JUNE 1-7, 1954 • The names of 136 veterans from five wars on whose graves flags were posted for Memorial Day by the American Legion in Monett were listed in The Times by cemetery. A few graves of war veterans remain unmarked and have not been found. • Between 350 and 400 people, many of them from Monett, attended the annual Stones Prairie Lutheran Church picnic on June 3, despite the coolish weather. Between 600 and 800 are expected next week at the Trinity Lutheran picnic in Freistatt. FIFTY YEARS AGO JUNE 1-7, 1964 • Construction is well underway on the new building for Kwik-Teck Inc. on the northwest corner of the Monett Industrial Development Corporation’s industrial tract. The firm, which manufactures poly foam into mattresses, pillows and for upholstery work, lost its entire building and contents by fire on April 11. Operations have continued in the old Jerome building at Second and Front streets.
Impressive services for the laying of the cornerstone of the new Trinity Lutheran Church at Freistatt were held on June 6. More than 600 persons attended, including members of the congregation. Rev. W.J. Stelling put the finishing touches to the cornerstone, at right. Also present were members of the building committee, front row from left: John Doss, Herbert Rusch, Edgar Fellwock, Frank Nelson, A.H. Biermann and I.B. Groh. Second row: Herman Knaust, Art Moennig, Emil Spree, Mike Doss and Arno Doss. File photo/The Monett Times • Rev. Harry Rigsby, the new minister of the Monett First Methodist Church, arrived on June 5 and will preach his first sermon on Sunday. He replaces Rev. Walter Niles, who has been assigned to Lee’s Summit. FORTY YEARS AGO JUNE 1-7, 1974 • The second meeting of the newly formed Barry-Lawrence County Association for Retarded Citizens was scheduled for June 11 at which time a constitution and bylaws will be presented. A board of six members and officers will be elected. • The Monett Saddle Club held a rodeo on June 6 that included a bull riding competition with two Brahma bulls.
THIRTY YEARS AGO JUNE 1-7, 1984 • Herbert L. Coggin, who joined the U.S. Postal Service as postmaster at Republic in 1961, was scheduled to take over as postmaster at Monett on June 8. Coggin succeeds Joe Bill Edwards, who retired in 1983. • The Pierce Jaycees have named Clara Mae Landoll as the 1983 Outstanding Pierce Citian in recognition of her outstanding contributions to the community. TWENTY YEARS AGO JUNE 1-7, 1994 • Charles Cecil of Purdy, Kenneth “Red” Sharver of Monett and Bill Davis of rural Verona shared mixed feelings and their mem-
ories of participating in D-Day for the 50th anniversary. “I wouldn’t take $1 million for my experience, knowing what I know, seeing what I’ve seen. But I wouldn’t give 15 cents to do it again,” Sharver said. • Graduation ceremonies were held for the Monett Police Department’s first Citizens Academy, a nine-week session providing insight into police operations. TEN YEARS AGO JUNE 1-7, 2004 • At an open house to
mark the beginning of the ninth season at Camp Barnabas, a five-year plan was unveiled that included a new swimming pool and expanding the number of cabins by 25 percent. • The Verona school board awarded silver trays to high school principal Leon Perry, with 33 years in education, counselor Don Wilks, with 28 years, and special education teacher Charlotte Youngberg, with 44 years, at a retirement luncheon.

Campgrounds, marinas gear up for busy season
Weather plays major factor in businesses BY MELONIE ROBERTS email@example.com
Following a harsh winter and extended spring, local campgrounds and marinas are gearing up for what they hope will be a beautiful summer season. “It looks like we’re in for a fairly busy summer,” said Darren Hedgcorth, manager of Big M Marina near Cassville. “The 4th of July is already filled. “We’re a little slow going into the Memorial Day weekend, but I think that’s because the weather is cooler than it typically is at this time of year. Things will start to pick up around Wednesday before the weekend.” Hedgcorth said the fishing is good and bass, in particular, are biting now. “They’ll hit about anything you want to throw in the water,” he said. “They’re hungry.” Hedgcorth said he is still performing some maintenance and clean-up around CONTINUED ON PAGE 6
The Big M Marina, as seen from the water, is a welcome sight for boaters and campers wanting to stop and refresh themselves after a long day on Table Rock Lake. The Dock-N-Eat Floating Cafe offers both open air and screened-in areas for sampling their hand-breaded tenderloins, handcrafted burgers and a variety of appetizers. Melonie Robertsfirstname.lastname@example.org
Brett Higgins, a summer employee at Big M Marina near Mano, is finishing some late spring chores in preparation for the surge of guests coming in for the holiday weekend, which kicks off the summer season. Minnow tanks are filled, the dock has been cleaned and rental boats are primed for use. Higgins hoses algae off a no wake zone warning buoy that will be anchored near the marina.

The Missouri Ozarks along Table Rock Lake offers some of the finest scenery in the nation for outdoor enthusiasts and wildlife watchers. After the bitter winter local residents have endured, many are eager to get out on the lake and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. Melonie Robertsfirstname.lastname@example.org

Jacob Jennings and Brett Higgins, employees at Big M Marina, get one of the marina’s three rental boats ready for a busy weekend. These “party barges” are popular rentals for groups of family members and friends wanting to relax on the lake for the day. The marina has two pontoons, a deck boat and a jet ski for rent.

Missouri law requires the passage of a boating safety course to anyone born after Jan 1, 1984, in order to operate any vessel on the waterways throughout the state. Even if not required by law to get the Missouri Boating License, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and water patrol encourage people to still take a boating safety course before getting on the water this year.

Season: Lake businesses have limited time to make income for entire year

the marina, and campers are starting to trickle in to the Corps of Engineers’ 61-site campground, which is within walking distance of the marina, restaurant and general store. “We have new management in the restaurant, and I think that will work out well,” Hedgcorth said. “We’re getting ready to have a really good season.” Darrel Tilford, who has worked at Eagle Rock Marina since 1977 and is now manager, also said things are starting off slow. “This is the slowest spring I’ve seen since I
started here,” Tilford said. “We’re starting to get some reservations, but things really won’t pick up until after school has let out for the summer. “The thing about this business is we have about 100 days to make income for 365 days. We have a limited amount of time to make that annual income and inclement weather really affects our bottom line.” Tilford said most campgrounds and marinas were gearing up for the “Big 3.” “We’re hoping Memorial Day, the 4th of July and Labor Day are good,” he said. “Our big-
gest month is July, and we make about one-fourth of our gross income in that month alone.” Having gone through three owners at the marina, Tilford said his key piece of advice was not to get too excited early on. “I tell them not to look at the early numbers, but to wait until the end of the season to see how things went,” Tilford said. “The weather is going to break this week and we’re going to be getting very busy.” The marina has 150 covered slips ranging from 9 by 20 feet to 16 by 40 feet, for houseboats and pontoons.
A BIG CHAIR
FOR A BIG MAN!
“Several of those are already booked for the summer,” Tilford said. “It’s a good idea for people to call ahead and reserve a slip.” The marina offers a convenience store offering basic supplies for boaters and campers. But the big attraction, of course, is the fishing. “My grandson and I went fishing on (a recent) Sunday, the last one I’ll have off until after Labor Day,” Tilford said. “He caught 25 bass and I caught about 15. If I can get motivated to scale them, we’ll have a pretty good dinner.” Nearby is the Lazy Eagle Resort, which offers 14 units, all kitchenettes with two double beds, a dinette, air conditioning and television. Campers can also make reservations at the Corp of Engineers RV/Camping
Park next to the marina. “We’re starting to book up for Memorial Day, and the 4th of July is already overbooked,” said Nancy Trimble of Campbell Point Marina. “All of the daily slips and campgrounds are starting to fill. The weather has been so crummy across the country this winter that people are wanting to get out and get active and get some sunshine. I think we’re going to have a great season.” Campbell Point Marina, which is open year-round, now has a boat vendor on site. “We are proud to have partnered with The Harbor Boat and Yacht Sales out of Branson,” Strimble said. “They will have boat sales right at the marina.” Campbell Point is also home to The Port Grill, which serves a variety of
food ranging from burgers and sandwiches to Alaskan King Crab and special BBQ meals on Saturdays and holiday weekends. The convenience store at the marina also offers camping necessities, food, clothing, rental boats and inner tubes for additional fun on the lake. While summer is gearing up into full-swing, Strimble is also looking forward to fall, when things slow down a bit. “The day after Labor Day is the best-kept secret in this business,” she said. “When all the kids go back to school, older adults and those without children are finding it the perfect time to visit the lake. “It’s quieter, more relaxed and the weather is still beautiful. Many people wait until after Labor Day to schedule vacations for that reason.”

Couple feeling financial strain receives many helpful ideas DEAR ABBY: “Holding on in Arkansas” (Feb. 27) asked where to go for free counseling. You suggested she call her local mental health department for counseling options for her marriage and money issues. Another resource would be her local church. Pastors often offer counseling to couples. Many churches also have support groups for parents to connect with each other. I have seen churches save marriages and get couples back on the right track emotionally and financially.— PASSING IT ON IN TENNESSEE DEAR PASSING IT ON: Your suggestion was mentioned by a number of other readers. They, too, felt that solving her financial problems would lessen or eliminate the marital discord “Holding” and her husband are experiencing. Read on: DEAR ABBY: One of the largest contributors to our national charitable network— United Way—offers many helpful services. The Consumer Credit Counseling Service may also be a resource, if credit cards are part of the problem. If there is a choice between paying a bill or buying groceries, the bill should come first. There are many food pantries.
to seek out available help is crucial.—SCHOOL COUNSELOR-INTRAINING
JEANNE PHILLIPS DEAR ABBY The family can also apply for food stamps. Asking for help can be difficult or embarrassing, but knowing your kids won’t be hungry makes it worth it.— BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, TOO DEAR ABBY: “Holding” should contact her bank about refinancing her mortgage. If she can’t pay her electric bill, she should see if she qualifies for a reduced rate for her income level. As for the kids, if they’re in school, they probably meet the criteria for the reducedcost lunch program.— FULL OF IDEAS IN WASHINGTON DEAR ABBY: “Holding” should seek help from the school counselor. He/she can recommend mental health support within the family’s financial means, and connect them with additional community resources to lessen some of the stresses of daily life. With many families struggling in many ways, encouraging this woman
DEAR ABBY: Does her employer or her husband’s have an Employee Assistance Program? These services offer a wide range of help, including dealing with mental health and financial issues, and may be paid for as part of the employer’s contract with the EAP organization.—JUST MY TWO CENTS DEAR ABBY: If the woman’s county doesn’t have a mental health department, her region should have a department of public health. Or she could be guided by the school nurse at her children’s school. School nurses are often the first responders to families
in crisis or in need of counseling.—NEW ENGLAND NURSE DEAR ABBY: It is human nature to want the best for one’s family, but a lot of the couples suffering this kind of stress have brought it on themselves. There won’t be enough money for food and monthly bills if they are paying for new cars, a house they can’t afford, ordering takeout instead of cooking, subscribing to the deluxe cable TV package, going on expensive vacations and paying for activities the kids “have to do” just because their friends are. Couples’ financial problems could be greatly improved if they would only make better choices.—LIVING WITHIN MY MEANS DOWN SOUTH
