Sports 2013

High School Football Roundup t’s that time of the year again. Time for some football. High school teams have started preparations for what they hope ends with state supremacy. For Hannibal, success is an annual occurrence. Last fall the Pirates posted a double digit win total before losing to Jefferson City Helias in the district championship. The bar has once again been raised in 2013 especially with the return of multi faceted seniors Mitch Nichols and Lijah Harrison. There’s also plenty of help up front led by sophomore sensation Dylan Powell. The safe bet is Hannibal will win more than they lose this fall. Led by head coach

SPORTS

Mark St. Clair the Pirates have all of one losing campaign over the last 16 years. As each season comes and goes the comfort level under head coach Kevin Miles increases in Palmyra. The Panthers played for a district title last season and this season they hope not to come out on the losing end. Quarterback Brock Butler returns for his senior season and he’s got plenty of talent surrounding him including Josh Hultz, as well as Cole and Caleb Kizer. Palmyra has been on the cusp of a break out season, maybe 2013 will give them the opportunity to bust through and have an extended stay in the Class 2 postseason. Monroe City is moving forward and in search of erasing a season that can be best described as disappointing. The Panthers struggled with injuries and inefficiency which ultimately led to a losing campaign. This year one more of the tradition rich Class 2 football programs has a new leader in David Kirby who slides over from his assistant role to succeed Tony DeGrave who

left the school district. The Panthers return a number of players who saw action last season, most notably Grant O’Bryan. There is nowhere to go but up for Mark Twain. The Tigers were bounced from district play in the first round in 2012 but there is plenty to like this season. Head coach Matt Hudson is sure to rely heavily on quarterback Kacey Simmons who gained tons of experience under center last season. There’s also another reason for optimism: the Tigers lost only eight seniors off last season’s squad meaning there will be several players for Hudson to lean on in Mark Twain’s hopes of winning a district championship.

Discover The Joseph Ray Buchanan Story

B

eing a labor organizer in the late 1800s carried a hefty price tag—threats from capitalists and anti-union press alike, living hand-to-mouth while fighting to establish solidarity among workers, and the toll of bearing responsibility for the livelihoods of thousands of families during a strike, just to name a few of the occupational hazards. Because of these (and many more) difficulties in simply creating local tradesunions, a nationally organized labor movement would not begin to crystalize until the 1880s, beginning with the Knights of Labor. At the center of action that would culminate in the Knights’ membership approaching 1 million members by 1886 was a “labor agitator” nicknamed “The Rip-Roarer of the Rockies,” an ironic name for one of the most respected labor men in the country… since he was from Hannibal, Missouri. Joseph Ray Buchanan was born on December 6, 1851 into an Irish Catholic family who lived on Palmyra Avenue until the end of the 1860s. Joseph’s father, Robert Sylvester Buchanan, worked

in Hannibal as a printer for the daily Courier and (briefly) the Journal newspapers; Robert had also headed the local chapter No. 88 of the National Typographers Union, a union that Joseph would join years later as a first step into the world of collective bargaining. As a young man, Buchanan bounced between various jobs (at least one involving a newspaper in Pike County that his father had bought), eventually working at The Riverside Press in the town of Louisiana as a jack-of-all-trades: typesetter, editor, reporter, and bookkeeper. The newspaper trade would remain in his blood for most of his life and provide a backdrop for his forays in political activism. Sidetracked on his way to the silver and copper ore rush in Leadville, Colorado, he accepted a job in Denver, where he rose from typesetter to managing editor of The Denver Democrat within three months. By being at what was then nicknamed a “rat” or non-union paper, he would endure tirades from co-workers and bosses against organized labor; he later would write in his autobi-

ography that such hatred against a movement had influenced him to sympathize with and eventually support unions. By 1879 he, along with the paper’s city editor, had already quit to begin their own publishing house and job placement office for union men only. The mining bug had hit Buchanan again, however, and he left Denver for the Leadville area in the spring of 1880. Newly married and unsuccessful as a miner, his union card allowed him to find a position as typesetter for The Daily Democrat in Leadville. During an otherwise unsuccessful miner’s strike he gained a reputation as an effective “soapbox orator” in the streets, trying to keep striking miners and their families focused and determined in the face of increasingly physical opposition. In return for his efforts, he became a target of threats from a group called the Committee of 100, and he moved the family back to Denver the following spring. By helping to transition the composing room of the Rocky Mountain News from an open to a union shop in 1881, Buchanan had officially crossed over into a role as labor organizer. The following year, he was elected to represent a local chapter at the International Typographers Union convention in St. Louis. While there, his persuasive involvement in the proceedings earned him two nicknames that would stay with him for the remainder of his life:

“Kicker” and “Rip-Roarer of the Rockies.” Within a few months, he would become a charter member of only the second Knights of Labor Assembly in Denver and begin a years-long mission to organize tradesmen across the west against monopolistic and dangerous business practices. The Noble and Holy Order of the Knights of Labor began as a secret society of garmentcutters in Philadelphia in 1869 as a labor organization to replace the splintered local garment union system in place. By 1882, though, the group had greatly expanded its focus and dropped the oath of secrecy; along the way, the K.O.L. invited individuals and groups from different trades to operate under the same banner, sharing collective bargaining resources along the way (the original motto was, “An injury to one is the concern to all.”) The opportunity was ripe for “Kicker” Joseph to take a leadership role in Colorado, and inspired by another motto—“Agitate, Educate, Organize!”—he started a labor newspaper in Denver that year under the unsurprising title The Denver Labor Enquirer on virtually no budget or capital. This paper served as the voice of labor throughout the west for over five years, opening lines of communication between workers from St. Louis to San Francisco. Buchanan also played a more direct role in the development of the K.O.L. by organizing chapters in his words, “from Omaha

DISCOVER to Ogden.” By 1884, he had not only been elected to represent Colorado at the national K.O.L. convention, but he had also been chosen to serve on the executive board, representing all outposts west of the Mississippi River and working alongside the K.O.L. Master Workman (elected leader) Terence V. Powderly. Part of the key to Joseph’s leadership success involved his even-handedness in approaching strikes; he developed a test with two questions, “Is it just?” and “Do we have an even chance to win?” In other words, a strike would be considered as the last means of defense for workers’ rights. He writes in his autobiography: “The agitator isn’t always an advocate of strikes. He has sometimes to exert his influence to prevent a strike which his judgment tells him would be unwise. It may sound like mixing terms to say so, but it is a truth that the most difficult tasks performed by the labor agitators are their ‘agitations’ in the interest of peace—their efforts to prevent strikes. The man who is always in favor of a strike as soon as one is suggested… soon finds his influence as a leader gone, and thereafter he may go off and agitate by himself.” Ironically, strikes led to Buchanan’s prominence as one of the leading voices of the national labor movement. He was asked to head a strike of Union Pacific Railway shopmen in Colorado

against wage cuts, and he orchestrated it from a local to national strike within 36 hours, conducting the first successful strike against a major railroad company in only 4 days—he later unionized all important points on the Union Pacific system in less than a month. In 1885, he had overseen two more successful strikes against capitalist Jay Gould’s Missouri, Kansas, & Texas Railroad and the Wabash railroad, which included a trip back to his hometown of Hannibal to fortify the workers. The success of these strikes greatly influenced the tripling of membership in the Knights of Labor within only 3 years. Incidentally, strikes conducted in the 1880s carried a bit more danger than the organized protests of today. A capitalist or “boss” as the target of a strike would often resort to tactics used to physically threaten workers, whether it be in employing “boilermakers” or hoodlums to break up lines or provoke union leaders into fights, or in calling for a state militia (as in the mining strike of Leadville) to clear the streets. Buchanan was once accused by the Rocky Mountain News of encouraging violence during the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad strike because some demonstrators had used small-scale explosives to damage workhouse buildings and an engine; as a result, the paper had incited threats of a lynch mob to get Buchanan if another explosion occurred. The irony was that detectives hired by the railroad had been planting the devices, then blaming the damage on the strikers. In contrast, Joseph later

wrote, “There was never a time when I advocated force as a means of settling the labor controversy.” Buchanan was lured from Denver to establish a labor newspaper in Chicago just months after the Haymarket Riot, and he immersed himself into supporting the self-described anarchists who were convicted of conspiracy in the deaths of eight policemen at the riot. A mass demonstration on May 1, 1886 to establish an 8-hour working day was met with several beatings and shootings from the police force, and a second demonstration denouncing the police treatment was attempted on May 4. As the police started to break up the protest, an anarchist threw a homemade bomb into the throng of officers, causing the casualties. As a result, eight men were arrested and convicted for various levels of conspiracy to murder, with seven sentenced to death by hanging—although none of the men had actually been directly linked with the bombing itself. Buchanan befriended the men over a period of months and fought for their clemency; only two sentences were commuted, while the original perpetrator of the bombing had been identified but never arrested. The riot had long-lasting implications in that labor unions began to be mis-identified as anarchist groups, and that the Knights of Labor (and Buchanan himself) were of the same mindset. In the same timeframe, Buchanan was caught in the middle of an internal struggle within the Knights. At their 1886 national convention in Richmond, Virginia, a resolution was passed— against Buchanan’s vehement objections—denying the rights of

certain trade unions within the Knights. The division within the Knights leadership helped lead to an exodus from the Knights to the AFL within the next few years. By then, however, Buchanan had settled into a different role as an agitator. He relocated to New Jersey in 1888 and was involved in the formation of the People’s (or Populist) Party, the most successful third political party in history to that point. He served on their national committee for nominations, and he was nominated by others to run for the House of Representatives twice. The newspaper business had never left his blood, as he worked as labor editor for William Randolph Hearst’s New York Evening Journal from 1904 to 1915. Perhaps the most fitting accolade for Buchanan occurred when he was chosen to serve on the first federal conciliation council under the Department of Labor, where he would serve as mediator to settle or prevent strikes. Since Labor Day was enacted as a working man’s holiday, it is fitting to pay tribute to a native Hannibalian who helped in making large strides toward worker’s rights that many take for granted as standard practice today. Joseph Ray Buchanan embodied the same qualities of many of our other prominent alumni—an all-encompassing devotion to one’s life work.

The Huck Finn Freedom Center: Jim’s Journey SEPTEMBER 21

ver wondered about Jim from the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn? Ever wondered about his wife, Sadie Watson, and children, Elizabeth and Johnny? A new museum in Hannibal, The Huck Finn Freedom Center: Jim’s Journey, located at 509 N. 3rd Street (right next to the Hannibal Visitors and Convention Bureau) documents the life of Daniel Quarles (Jim), Mark Twain’s famous slave character, and portrays how he and African Americans lived as slaves and as a free people after emancipation in 19th century Hannibal. Hannibal has long been home to everything Twain, real and fictional—Mark Twain’s Boyhood Home and Museum, the Tom and Huck Statue, the Becky Thatcher House, the Huck Finn Home, the Mark Twain Cave and the Injun Joe Campground— but there’s been no memorial to Jim until now. As literary experts are taking another look at the portrayal of African Ameri-

cans in the works of Mark Twain, they are discovering how he used satire and humor to create characters of dignity, intellect, and inspiration. You will learn why Samuel Clemens, the humanitarian, has been referred to as the “Lincoln of our Literature” (William Dean Howells). Jim, in the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, is the first African American character in fiction written by a white person to be portrayed as a full-fledged human being, no longer a fixture but a man, a husband, a father, not invisible. The center opened June 19 and will be open through October 31 on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and by appointment. A special Grand Opening of the Huck Finn Freedom Center: Jim’s Journey will be held from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm on September 21. For more information call 217-617-1507.

olunteers are needed each Saturday in September to help complete the excavations at Mark Twain’s Uncle John Quarles’ farmstead site. Plans for this site include rebuilding the Quarles’ farmstead based on the archaeological and documentary evidence and eventually having a living-history farm—the “missing Link� in the Twain sites. This is the seventh year of excavating on the site. The site of the main house has been excavated. Although not finished, the south pen of the dog-trot log house has been rebuilt. Excavations in September will center on the smoke-house, the kitchen ell and the area of the west side back porch. Artifacts in these areas will be recovered and these structures will be rebuilt as funds become available. Two film studios have filmed Twain documentaries on this site, and it is visited by people from all over the world. An open house on the site will be held Saturday September 29 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Unique to this site is that children ten years old or older may come and participate in the dig if each child is accompanied by an adult (one child-one adult, two children-two adults, etc.). A professional archaeologist will be on hand to supervise along with several assistants. All volunteers need to meet at 8:00 am at the red & white metal building west of highway 107, and about two miles south of highway 24 and north of Grandma’s Country Music. They should bring lunch, snacks, and water. Tools will be provided. Space is limited. To reserve a spot call 573-735-2784.

Health & Fitness What’s the Big Deal About Yoga? SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL YOGA MONTH

n 2008, the Department of Health and Human Services designated September as National Yoga Month. Since then, Yoga Month has expanded into a nationally recognized awareness campaign designed to educate Americans about the health benefits of yoga and to inspire a healthy lifestyle. So, what is the “big deal” about yoga? The big deal about yoga lies in the fact that it is more than a physical exercise program. It is a scientific system designed to generate clarity of mind, a healthy body, and a harmonious life through posture and movement, breathing techniques, and meditation. Reported benefits include reduced stress levels, improved flexibility and range of motion in joints, increased strength and endurance, better concentration and posture, increased lung capacity, lower resting heart rate and blood pressure, and, of course, healthy weight management. It is possible to achieve many of these benefits by simply practicing the yoga postures. However, when we allow ourselves to tune out all the excess chatter in our minds, to turn off all the

things that create static in our lives and become present, even for just a few moments, we begin to discover the “big deal” in all its yogic glory. A neat thing about yoga is that the body (regardless of shape, size, or age) responds quickly to the practice. Students new to yoga have repeatedly expressed a new lightness in their body, reduced pain, or a sense of peace after the first or second session. There is no better way to understand the power of yoga than to experience it first-hand. Luckily, yoga is a practice that transcends age or ability requirements. Classes are developed specifically for beginners, seniors, individuals wanting to relax and renew, as well as those who want to get an aerobic workout. It is a great cross-training program for athletes as well; aiding in cardiovascular conditioning, flexibility, as well as creating a mindbody connection. In fact, a regular yoga practice is included in the training programs of many National Football League teams Contact your local yoga providers for information on Yoga Month events or navigate to http://yogahealthfoundation.org for a listing of studios and offerings.

2013 Bridge the Gap to Health Race Supports MedAssist Program

“T

o sustain or enhance the quality of life of our community.” Bridge the Gap to Health’s mission statement was exemplified in its efforts to raise money for the Quincy Catholic Charities MedAssist Program. Not only were there nearly 2,000 participants in the 2013 race, but the funds raised surpassed last year’s amount by over $1,000. On Friday, August 2, 2013, Quincy Medical Group presented a check in the amount of $54,584 to Quincy Catholic Charities MedAssist Program. The donation came from a combination of registration fees, donations and sponsors. Bridge the Gap’s sponsors include Quincy Recycle, State Street Bank, Quincy Herald Whig, McDonald’s, Blue Cross Blue Shield, City of Quincy, DOT Foods, Quincy Medical Group, Quincy Park District, Y101, NuFit For You, Refreshment Services Pepsi, WGEM, Mercantile Bank and HyVee. “This event is a fun way for friends and families to get together and participate in something not only healthy and active, but something that gives back and helps people in our very own community,” said Carrie Kimber, Bridge the Gap Race Director. “Every dollar that is made from the race goes to the MedAssist

Program. Since 2001, the program has helped patients obtain almost 35,000 prescriptions at a value of over $10.7 million. Each and every person has helped us achieve that life-changing accomplishment.” The MedAssist Program helps leverage medications from pharmaceutical companies to families who meet income guidelines but do not have Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance coverage for prescriptions. MedAssist is funded solely through the generosity of the United Way, Bridge the Gap to Health, and minimal patient fees. “Bridge the Gap is the major fundraiser for MedAssist,” Jackie Bruns, Quincy Catholic Charities Area Director said, “and without it, hundreds of families would go without prescriptions that help them manage chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes.” The 2014 race is set for May 17. Quincy Medical Group is hoping to raise $60,000 next year for the MedAssist Program. For more information about Bridge the Gap to Health, go to www. bridgethegaptohealth.com.

3rd Annual Trivia Night Fundraiser OCTOBER 5

T

he Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum trivia night fundraiser to benefit the Becky Thatcher House will be held Saturday, October 5, at the Hannibal Nutrition Center. Doors open at 6:00 pm and trivia begins at 7:00 pm. Proceeds will go toward the fabrication and installation of permanent exhibits that will be housed in “the Becky.” Each team will consist of up to 10 players and the cost is $100 per team. There will be a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, bake sale and mulligans will be available for purchase. There will be ten rounds with 10 questions each. Only one category will feature Mark Twain and will focus on his 1872 book Roughing It.

The museum purchased the property, which had suffered from years of deferred maintenance, in 2000. The House will be filled with temporary exhibits until funds are raised for the permanent exhibits. To reserve a table, donate a silent auction item or sponsor a round of trivia, call Brenna McDermott at 573-221-9010, ext. 404.

Born to Hunt very September you will find me twenty-something feet up in the air, perched in a tree. My lifeline consists of a sturdy deer stand and a safety harness. My timing is as predictable as the autumn waterfowl migration. It is engrained in every bit of my being. It is a primal response that I can neither control nor explain. I really couldn’t explain it if I wanted to. It is me and my bow against one of the most cunning four-legged adversaries to ever draw a breath. As I go mano-a-mosquitoâ€Śâ€œThat’s Portugese or Spanish for handto-insectâ€?‌ I often ask myself why I subject myself to such punishment. Sometimes mid-September manages to produce temperatures in the 80s. Imagine wearing multiple layers of scent-control clothing and putting a 33-pound deer stand on your back, plus another 12-15 pounds of calls, scents, and other required equipment on your person, on any 80-degree day and then taking a one-mile hike. Upon arrival you are greeted by a deafening hum of flying insects waiting to feast on you. You also have insects that don’t fly wanting a piece of the action. I feel like a blood bank or bug buffet on most days. Please don’t mention bug sprays, because deer can smell them from 200 yards. I bought a wonderful little invention called a Therma-Cell a few years ago. It produces a hint of vanilla scent from a heated pad on a compact propane burner. The apparatus looks like a walkie-talkie of sorts. It helps a great deal, and deer seem to ignore the scent. But ticks and horseflies seem oblivious to them, so going home with the same amount of blood you left with is seldom an option. I have always been amazed at how hunters in camouflage can conceal themselves from everything in the woods except blood-thirsty, savage insects. The person who invents that line of clothing will be the person who retires very wealthy.

By Hick Finn

There is no other experience that can get you any closer to nature than being tethered to a tree in blistering heat with a steady stream of sweat pouring into one or both eyes, fogged-up glasses and the hum from swarms of mosquitoes that is so loud you would swear someone had a blow-dryer in your ear as you await sunrise or sunset. Anyone who doesn’t comprehend what hunting is about would merely label you an idiot. I get some perplexing glares from my wife as I come and go throughout deer season adorned like a mercenary soldier. I am sure that, since she doesn’t hunt, she questions my sanity often. Regardless of the weather, I hunt. I live by one motto: “If you don’t go, you won’t know!� I have heard my wife explain how I am obsessed with hunting. It is a hobby that can fill up a year. The off season is when scouting, planting food plots and checking on your string of trail cameras happens. I sometimes get completely side-tracked and go fishing. Actually, you have to hunt fish too, if you think about it. I have a very special wife who tolerates my obsession for which I am thankful. Either she tolerates it or she can’t ever find me to serve the divorce papers. Who knew camouflage had a dual purpose? She has had her feathers ruffled a few times, but deep down she knows what every hunting trip means to me. What she doesn’t know is venison is about $1200.00 a pound when you factor all costs incurred to harvest one. Hunting is something non-hunters will never understand. It is a love relationship between man, wildlife and nature. It is a life choice, but more than that it is life in its purest form. If you can’t embrace hunting, then just accept it. It has roots extending generations deep. It is a force. Have you hugged your hunter today? I would look for your hunter in front of the television watching the Outdoor Channel, if I had to bet.
