Barnett guilty of misdemeanor By TONY BROWN News editor
In less than half an hour a two-yearold sexual assault case that bitterly divided the Maryville community and created a national media sensation ended with a brokered guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge by a single defendant who was placed on two years’ probation with no jail time. The plea by 19-year-old Matt Barnett to one count of endangering the welfare of a child means that the former Maryville High School student will face no further criminal action in connection with a liquor-soaked teenage party after which two teenaged girls, aged 13 and 14, claimed to have been raped.
“Legally we could not get that charge over the bar. I could not file that charge.” — Jean Peters Baker One of the girls, Daisy Coleman, has been living inside an intense media spotlight since investigative stories by the Kansas City Star and a Kansas City public radio station portrayed her as a tragic victim of bullying and abuse, much of it via social media. The abuse became so severe, according to the Coleman family, that they were forced to leave town, moving to Albany. The house where they had lived on the northeastern edge of Maryville was later destroyed in a fire for which no cause was ever determined. After the move, Daisy Coleman reportedly continued to suffer from depression and anxiety, a downward See BARNETT, Page 3

Special prosecutor Jean Peters Baker talks to reporters in front of the Nodaway County Courthouse after Judge Glen Dietrich accepted a plea-bargained guilty plea on a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child from Matt Barnett, the sole remaining defendant in the Daisy Coleman sex abuse investigation.
R-II board reviews performing arts building plans By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff Writer
Planning for the future
KEVIN BIRDSELL/DAILY FORUM
The Maryville R-II Board of Education discussed proposed additions to Maryville High School and Eugene Field Elementary School during a Wednesday work session. The extensive capital projects, including a performing arts center at the high school, are dependent on voter approval of a $10.25 million bond issue this spring.
Record....................... 2 Opinion..................... 4 Religion..................... 5
The Maryville R-II Board of Education gathered this week for a work session geared toward ironing out the details of major capital improvements to be financed with a proposed $10.25 million bond issue set to go before voters during the April 8 municipal election. If the measure passes, the district plans on adding a performing arts center at the Maryville High School campus and expanding the existing cafeteria, kitchen and commons area at Eugene Field Elementary School. District officials have described the performing arts center, which would seat about 680 people, as their main priority. As now envisioned, the proposed center will be constructed close to the current band and choir rooms and provide easy access for the ensembles to practice in their main performance space.

In addition, the first three rows of seats in the auditorium will have tablet arms, allowing the space to be used as a classroom or examination site as well as during guest lectures by students wishing to take notes. The current cafeteria at Eugene Field Elementary School seats only 120 students, which means only one of the school’s four grade levels is able to eat at a time. The proposed new facility would seat around 250 students, which would allow two grades to be served at once, cutting the time needed to serve lunch in half. Other changes to be paid for with the bond issue include secure entryways at all three R-II campuses, including the installation of door buzzers and security cameras. The district also wants to build a practice gymnasium at the high school, which would be largely financed with a grant through the See PLANS, Page 12

Mass coverage Maryville was once again in the international media spotlight, Thursday afternoon, as a gaggle of reporters and television crews greeted the prosecutor and defense attorney in the Daisy Coleman Case after defendant Matt Barnett pleaded guilty Tuesday to a single misdemeanor charge. Both attorneys said justice was served in the court’s acceptance of the plea, after which Barnett was placed on two years of supervised probation. TONY BROWN/DAILY FORUM

Plea bargain agreement
Energy priority for speaker
TONY BROWN/DAILY FORUM
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones says energy policy will be part of his agenda for this year’s legislative session. The Eureka Republican says lawmakers need to ensure the state’s utility regulation framework does not block new developments involving coal and natural gas. Jones also says lawmakers need to look at investing in an aging infrastructure to keep some of Missouri’s utility rates among the lowest in the nation.
J.R. Hobbs, the attorney for Matt Barnett, reviews a proceeding in which Barnett accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to supervised probation identical to the one originally filed by Nodaway County prosecutor Robert Rice after he decided to drop felony sex abuse charges against Barnett two years ago. ers outside the west entrance to the courthouse. Hobbs said the plea deal, which came about after more than a month of negotiations, “accurately reflects the crime” committed by the defendant. He added that “felony charges were not appropriate,” and that the single misdemeanor count came about following what Hobbs described as thorough investigations by two separate prosecutors. Barnett “truly regrets” his actions on the night of the party, said Hobbs, who described the outcome of the case as “another example of the rule of law fairly applied.” For her part, Baker said Barnett’s guilty plea made it “a good day” for justice and produced an outcome to the case supported by both Daisy Coleman, whom she refrained from mentioning by name, and her family. She continued that, after a thorough review of the evidence, neither a felony nor misdemeanor sexual assault charge was warranted. “Legally we could not get that charge over the bar,” Baker said. “I could not file that charge.” Throughout her negotiations with Hobbs, Baker said the possibility of a felony charge against Barnett was “certainly on the table,” but in the end the evidence just wasn’t there. “The system works,” she said. “We don’t always like

the outcome, but the system is evidence based, and that is why it works.” What mattered in the end, Baker said, was that Barnett was “held accountable for his actions” and that the record of his misdemeanor criminal conviction “will never go away.” Baker also read a statement from Daisy Coleman issued through her lawyer, John P. O’Connor: “I want to thank everyone who supported me and my family during these past two years,” Coleman was quoted as saying. “Your support has meant so much to me. Today, I am grateful that the defendant took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges. I am ready to move forward. To all those who supported me, I promise that what happened on January 8, 2012, will not define me forever.”
Kirkwood man wins $2M
KIRKWOOD, Mo. (AP) — A suburban St. Louis man is $2 million richer after matching all but the Powerball number in the Dec. 4 Powerball drawing. He nearly won millions more. The Missouri Lottery says 48-year-old John Lee used a combination of family birthdays and lucky numbers. The win would have been $1 million, but Lee paid the extra dollar to add the “Power Play” feature to his ticket, doubling his prize. The winning numbers were 6, 9, 11, 31 and 44. The Powerball was 25 — Lee used his wife’s birthday date, 28. Had he used his own birthday date — 25. Had he do so, he would have won $81 million.
Death nets 8-year sentence
INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — A northwest Missouri woman was sentenced to eight years in prison for beating her husband to death with a hammer. Catherine Ashworth did not speak during sentencing Thursday in Jackson County Circuit Court. She pleaded guilty in November to manslaughter for killing her husband, 64-year-old Ronnie Ashworth Sr., in August of 2010. She said that she hit her husband several times in the head with a hammer after they argued about infidelity.

a document declaring his intention to plead guilty, Dietrich listened as Baker read the charge accusing the defendant of acting “with criminal negligence in a manner that created a substantial risk to the life, body and health” of Daisy Coleman. The charge stated that Barnett provided Coleman with “alcohol until she was substantially intoxicated and impaired,” then left her outside her home in below freezing temperatures when the teen was “incapable of protecting or caring for herself.” Barnett was not charged with any sex crime. After accepting the guilty plea, Dietrich sentenced Barnett to four months in the Nodaway County jail, then suspended the sentence and placed the defendant on two years’ supervised probation. As a condition of that probation, Barnett cannot drink alcohol or enter establishments where it is served, must perform 100 hours of community service, must pay restitution in the form of therapeutic counseling costs incurred by the victim, and undergo periodic blood and urine tests designed to detect substance abuse. Finally, Barnett will be required to acknowledge wrongdoing and apologize personally to Daisy Coleman and her family. Following the proceeding, both Hobbs and Baker addressed a mob of report-

spiral that culminated early this week with her hospitalization following an apparent suicide attempt. In the days immediately after the party, Barnett and a then-17-year-old classmate both faced felony sexual abuse charges after a lightly clothed and barefoot Coleman was abandoned drunk outside her home just before dawn on a freezing night in early January. While at the party, Coleman, then 14, told authorities she was given vodka and taunted by teenage boys into drinking from the “bitch cup.” She said it was the last thing she remembered before waking up in her yard. Several weeks later, however, all felony charges associated with the case were dropped by Nodaway Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice, who claimed that Daisy and her mother, Melinda Coleman, had stopped cooperating with authorities, an assertion the Colemans angrily denied. Rice’s decision sparked a nationwide public outcry in the wake of the Star’s in-depth reporting and resulted in the appointment of special prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, who on Thursday ended up accepting a plea bargain in which Barnett pleaded guilty to same misdemeanor charge proposed by Rice two years ago. Neither Melinda nor Daisy Coleman were at Thursday’s proceeding in the main courtroom of the Nodaway County Courthouse. Barnett, however, appeared in person accompanied by his parents and his attorney, J.R. Hobbs. Entering the courtroom dressed in a blue dress shirt, tie and dark slacks, Barnett sat with his attorney at the defendant’s table to the right of associate Circuit Judge Glen Dietrich and with his back to a gallery filled with about 40 reporters. Security was heavy and included at least four uniformed county officers and two plainclothesmen. Once Barnett had signed

A VIEW FROM THE COUNTRY
The Kansas City Star
The new year begins as all new years, with some positives and some negatives to take into consideration. There is no lack of people who are willing to champion one of these perspectives as opposed to the other. The truth of the matter is that there are many positive things happening within our country and its politics. For one, the economy of the country is considerably better than many would like us to believe. Why many negative perspectives complain about President Obama’s economic policies is beyond me. Economic growth has not been spectacular, but it has been increasing at a steady rate. America has done better than most advanced countries in percentage GDP growth the last few years. Interest rates have remained low, encouraging major purchases. Even the unemployment rate has gone down significantly in the last two years. At seven percent there is room for improvement to be sure, but the people in our area are doing much better than the national rate. ‘The Kansas City area’s unemployment rate has fallen to 5.3 percent in the latest figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor. The K.C. Missouri area added 10,700 jobs in 2013. The stock markets are booming in America, so why do all those rich folks complain so heartily about “Obama’s economy?” All the stock exchanges are at an all-time high. This is a result of corporate America making record profits. Energy prices, while still high, are coming down in part because the energy policies of the government have helped to reduce the amount of petroleum imported into the country to decades long lows. Alternate forms of energy have been increasing significantly as well.
KC projects go different ways
Two major transportation projects in Kansas City went in opposite directions in 2013. Plans to build a new terminal at Kansas City International Airport went off the rails. But the first new streetcar rails in decades were laid in downtown. In 2014, both projects need to move steadily forward. Tough decisions need to be made about how to renovate KCI and whether to expand the initial two-mile streetcar line. — Last April the proposal for a single-terminal KCI was moving swiftly through City Hall. “We’re either going to be on the cutting edge or we’re going to be left behind,” Mayor Sly James said after a City Council committee unanimously endorsed that plan. But faced with strident public opposition to making any major changes, James wisely created a citizens committee that has met for months to review proposals for what to do at KCI. The citizens panel has approached the job purposefully, as befits a project that could cost more than $1 billion. … However, the committee and the mayor and City Council must look beyond merely keeping the status quo because of KCI’s much-beloved convenience. They will have to determine whether building a new terminal could retain that convenience factor while also adding amenities that could help attract more flights and better serve millions of future customers. … … James and the council should not allow a group of passionate defenders of the current KCI to control this process. … … By the end of 2014, Kansas Citians should have had the opportunity to decide what the KCI of tomorrow will look like. — Streetcar supporters enjoyed encouraging progress in 2013, (as) City Council members pushed forward on an aggressive scheme to expand the streetcar line by eight to 10 miles by 2020 or so. … The Star has long supported fixed rail for its potential to spur developers to reuse old buildings for businesses and housing, and to woo developers to add more housing in the heart of the city. This aggressive option could cost around $400 million, and the city already has said it hopes to get half from the federal government. A large portion of funds could be raised through a higher sales tax and a larger assessment on properties roughly within a half mile on either side of an extended streetcar line. This funding would require public votes …. One big unknown is whether a delayed commuter rail proposal favored by Jackson County officials will make it off the drawing boards. … A bigger streetcar system has the potential to help pull together disparate neighborhoods in Kansas City and boost economic development. … Editor’s note: Alternative views will appear each Friday on the Daily Forum opinion page and consists of recently published editorials from other newspapers around the state.

There are many positives in America’s current society America’s foreign standing is higher than it has been in well over a decade. Obama extricated us from Iraq and is in the process of doing so in Afghanistan. He has refused to get into domestic conflicts that cannot be solved by external forces like those in Syria, South Sudan, Mali, and several other countries begging for our help. Diplomacy has been the policy of Obama, not forces on the ground. Issues continue, of course, in a
Richard Fulton variety of domestic areas from samesex marriage to domestic security matters. But all in all, there is much to be positive about. The truth of the matter is that there is a case for negative views of in regards to many of these areas of progress. Economic growth has been good, but it has been dominated by the top ten percent of America’s socio-economic sector. The distribution of wealth in the
country is worse than it has been in at least a hundred years. This means less of America’s worth is in the hands of workers who tend to spend their income, making the economy grow more consistently. Pay raises for the middle class has remained moribund for decades while the upper ten percent have increased their wealth substantially. The stock markets are up but these top ten percent own eighty percent of the stocks. Companies prosper but do not hire more workers in relation to that prosperity. Corporations hoard nearly a trillion dollars in capital that should be spent to create jobs. Unemployment is down but chronic unemployment is at post WWII highs. The government spends less on this and other programs to help the poor, holding back the economy. Congress won’t increase benefits for these folks unless more is cut from positive programs. They could cut from the $600 billion plus benefits government gives to those wealthy corporations, but they don’t. In short, there is much to be positive about in our society, even more than I have noted. At the same time there is much to do to strengthen the American society so that it can sustain its promise of a free and equitable society. Healthy debates are in our immediate future. If we can only conger up some degree of congeniality, even in heated exchanges, a balance can be reached to keep the vigor of the American experiment alive.

Today’s birthday celebrations have taken on a whole new ID
. The Boy was awake at 6 a.m. on a school day. That wasn’t like him. Although the Girl’s seven-year-old brain won’t let her sleep past 5:30 a.m., if we’d let the Boy sleep in on a weekday he’d probably wake up when it was time for him to go back to bed. Which he gladly would. That’s only during the school year, of course. Weekends and summers operate under different rules of chronology. But today was special. It was his ninth birthday. As a kid, birthdays consisted of me springing awake early in a manic frenzy, running downstairs and seemingly waiting until the start of the next millennium to open my presents (at that point it was still roughly 28 years away). My Birthday Present Opening Expectation Ratio compared unfavorably to my parent’s Expectation Reality Equation. My parent’s Expectation Reality Equation read something like this: Breakfast plus the Newspaper plus Coffee (possibly spiked with whiskey) equaled You Can Now Talk Without Fear of Death. The equation was completed (slowly, I might add) while I ran around the house like confused dog. Later that day, a group of friends would come over, we’d run ourselves stupid, eat cake and ice cream, I’d open more presents, we’d run again, then the other kids would go home and I’d pass out from exhaustion. My parents would pass out later for an entirely different reason. Then it was over until next year.
Birthdays don’t work like that anymore because parents have taken
Jason Offutt the celebration out of the children’s hands. Yesterday’s parent: What do you want to do for your birthday, son? Yesterday’s kid: I want to have Tommy, and Jimmy, and Sam, and Karl, and Jimmy… Yesterday’s parent: You already said Jimmy. Yesterday’s kid: And Tommy and Timmy over to my house. And we can eat cake and play in my tree house. And it was good. Not anymore. Today’s parents have expectations beyond free-range children eating cake. There’s Competitive
Birthdaying. Today’s Mom: What should we do for the Boy’s birthday? Today’s Dad: We could just have kids over to play in the tree house. Today’s Mom: Are you kidding? The Smiths had a hot air balloon, fireworks, one of the actors who played a gorilla in the original “Planet of the Apes” movie, and a live tiger at their son’s party. Do you want us to be those parents, the ones who don’t have live tigers? Today’s Dad: Those Smiths. They think they’re God’s gift to nine-yearolds birthday parties. Today’s kid: Can’t I just have my friends over to play in the tree house? Today’s parents: NO. Although the Boy cared as much about where his party was as he did taking a bath, we reserved a spot at the local movie theater. Movie, cake, presents, snacks, the works. But after all the thought, the planning, and hand wringing, we took seven eight-to-10year-old boys to the one kid-friendly movie our town’s theater offered. It was a Disney princess movie. By the time the party was over I wished I’d have had some of my parents’ coffee.

From the Pulpit
Is It Spring Yet?
I am tired of winter. This last blast of cold has been very discouraging. There is snow and ice on the ground. The wind is blowing. It’s darn cold outside! Each morning, the calendar shows that spring is getting closer. But the thermometer tells a different story. The thermometer says winter is going to stick around awhile. The days are still short and dark, and the will chill is below zero. One of these days, the crocus will poke through the snow. At least I hope they will. When spring does arrive, everyone will be relieved, grateful and joyful. Days start getting longer. Temperatures rise. We welcome the smell of pollen in the air because it tells us more flowers will come (allergies or not). During the spring season, people seem to be filled with more hope. The future seems brighter, success seems more plausible, and problems seem surmountable. Maybe it’s the blooming flowers, chirping birds or flowing streams. Maybe it’s because graduation is around the corner. Maybe it’s because people start planning fun summer vacations. It’s hard to tell. In any case, people are filled with a great deal of hope during the spring season. The rise in hopefulness is one reason so many people like spring. However, hope is most powerful when it is most difficult to have. Hope is easy in the spring. Hope is hard to find in the dead of winter. Hope is most powerful during a dark night of the soul – when it seems like there are no good solutions. Hope is most powerful when we have come to our wit’s end and there is nowhere to turn. Hope’s power comes from its source – God. The faith that there is a God who loves us provides deep hope. Hope has a nature that overcomes overwhelming odds, shines light in dark corners and opens doors securely locked. Hope reframes circumstances in ways we never thought possible. That’s the way hope works. That’s the way God works. Throughout the biblical narrative, hope is expressed in the most desperate circumstances. Psalm 42:10-11 says, “As with a deadly wound in my body, my adversaries taunt me, while they say to me continually, ‘Where is your God?’ Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God.” There are numerous other examples throughout the Bible when people express hope when things are dire. Maybe people have so much hope in the spring because it’s easier to have hope in the spring. Everything glows with a positive light. But right now, we are in the dead of winter. Now is the time that hope has the most power. So if your life is in the springtime of happiness and things are going well – you are blessed, have hope. If your life is in the dead of winter and it looks like the sun may never breach the horizon – have hope. For now, hope in God’s love is more powerful than ever. Rev. Jonathan Mitchell First Presbyterian Church Maryville, Mo.

It wasn’t just that hit that split the rock, but all those hits before it that worked up to splitting the rock.” -Maryville girls basketball coach Grant Hageman

Mustangs come up short By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer
A furious North Nodaway second-half rally came up one basket short, as the visiting North Harrison Shamrocks escaped with a 38-36 victory Tuesday evening. Cold shooting by the Mustangs allowed the Shamrocks to open up a 21-8 halftime lead. North Harrison took full advantage of their height advantage to dominate the boards and create several second-chance baskets. “I told the team at halftime to just continue to play with energy and compete and they certainly did in the second half,” head coach Chris Schoning said. In the second half, North Nodaway began combating North Harrison’s size advantage by shooting and making several three-pointers over the top of the defense. The Mustangs used their hot shooting to
outscore North Harrison 17-4 in the third quarter to tie the game at 25 all heading to into the fourth quarter. “We have to shoot and make three-pointers to be competitive, since we’re not very big,” Schoning said. The fourth quarter proved to be a backand-forth affair, with North Harrison moving out to a five-point lead with under four minutes to go, but the Mustangs had one final rally in them. Senior Nick Gladman nailed a threepointer and sophomore Ben Hart scored a put-back basket off an offensive rebound to cut the Shamrock lead to two, but Peyton Coleman’s final half-court shot didn’t fall, leaving the Mustangs two points short. Kody Reynolds and Dakota Smyser paced the Mustangs in scoring with nine points each, as they fall to 1-9 North Nodaway is back in action tonight, as they host Nodaway-Holt in a 275 Conference game.
North Nodaway used a trapping defense and clutch fourth quarter free throw shooting to down visiting North Harrison 46-37 in girls basketball action on Thursday evening. North Harrison used a 1-3-1 half-court trap defense to cause several first quarter Lady Mustang turnovers and used those opportunities to build a 15-5 lead at quarter’s end. North Nodaway began their comeback in the second quarter, led by senior Cambry Schluter’s five points. The Lady Mustangs trimmed the Lady Shamrocks’ lead to 21-17 by halftime. “We wanted to start the game really aggressive. We started changing up our defenses late in the first half,” Lady Mustang coach Doug Freemyer said. North Nodaway further cut into the North Harrison lead in quarter No. 3, as they closed the gap to one point, 29-28 by the end of the quarter. Erin Greeley tossed in five points in the quarter, while Madison Thompson’s four rebounds helped the Lady Mustangs hold their own with the taller Lady Sham-
rocks on the boards. “We kept talking to the girls about trusting each other, even when the shots weren’t falling. That’s how teams win,” Freemyer said. In the final eight minutes of the contest, North Nodaway’s 1-3-1 half-court trap defense forced several North Harrison turnovers and hurried shots. Schluter’s 12 points, including an eight-for-nine performance from the free throw line, which helped ice the contest for the Lady Mustangs. “I’m proud of our girls. It’s all about believing in each other and believing in the team,” Freemyer said. Schluter paced North Nodaway scoring with 21 points to go along with five rebounds and two assists. Freshman post Thompson pitched in with 11 points and 10 rebounds, and Greeley finished with 10 points. After the game, Schluter was presented with a basketball to commemorate scoring her 1,000th point during her Lady Mustang career. Schluter is the third player in school history to score over 1,000 points. With the victory, North Nodaway improves to 5-6 on the season. They will host the Lady Trojans of Nodaway-Holt in 275 Conference action tonight at 6 p.m.
Maryville wrestlers drop 3 matches STAFF REPORT
Maryville Daily Forum
Maryville could not overcome its shorthanded lineup Thursday night in dual matches against St. Joseph Lafayette, Cameron and Savannah. The Spoofhounds didn’t field a wrestler in five of the 14 weight classes and had to forfeit the points, which saw them end up on the losing side of the scoreboard. Against Savannah in the first dual of the night, Clayton Farrell, Logan Zimmerman and Dane Hull won via pin.
In the match against Cameron, Nathaniel Alexander won a 5-4 decision against the No. 2 ranked wrestler in the state in Class 2. The other winner against Cameron was Brendan Weybrew who scored a 7-3 win over Colt Banks. The effort against Lafayette saw Jacob Partridge pin his opponent as did Alexander. Hull also pinned his opponent and Trevor Zimmerman won an 8-6 decision. Maryville hits the mats again Saturday morning in the Mid-Buchanan Tournament. Wrestling will commence at 9 a.m. in Faucett.

JASON LAWRENCE/DAILY FORUM
Maryville senior point guard Cassie Holtman drove in for two points against Falls City (Neb.) earlier this season.
The Maryville girls basketball team has already matched its win total from last season without even playing a game in 2014. The Lady Spoofhounds (4-6) went 4-16 last season and were bounced in the first round of districts, something head coach Grant Hageman would like to improve on this season. “(Our goals are to) be more competitive and play (our) best basketball at the end of the year,” said Hageman, who is 112-75 in his career at Maryville. One feat Maryville has already matched from last year is taking second in the St. Joseph Bishop LeBlond Holiday Tournament — a tournament title the Hounds have now played for in seven consecutive seasons. Maryville returns three seniors — guard Chelsea Byland, who averaged 8.5 points per game last season, guard Cassie Holtman, who recorded 2.5 assists per contest a year ago and forward Gabby Church, who hauled in nearly eight rebounds per game. So far this season, joining the three seniors in the starting lineup have been a pair of sophomores — guards Mollie Holtman and Leah Jasinski. Mollie Holtman has led the team in scoring thus far, averaging seven points per game
after playing a lot as a freshman last year. Sophomores Josie Patton and Abby Van de Ven are two of the first players off the bench and junior Rachel Auffert, sophomore Jacquelyn Ware and freshmen Halley Sims and Kaylie Spire also see varsity action. Hageman, who is assisted by Phil Stone and John DeWeese, said taking care of the basketball would be one of the biggest keys to success this season. “Keys to success (are) taking care of the basketball and shooting,” he said. “We have to shoot a much higher percentage and not limit our shots because of turnovers.” The Midland Empire Conference is tough this year as well, Hageman said, with Cameron, Smithville, St. Joseph Benton, Chillicothe and St. Joseph Bishop LeBlond — which defeated the Hounds in the LeBlond Holiday Tournament title game — all having strong teams. “(This) may be one of the toughest years yet,” Hageman said. “Cameron was in the Final Four last year. Obviously, Smithville and Benton are always tough. Chillicothe has one of their better teams I have see since I have been here and LeBlond has almost everyday back.” To get his team playing the best, Hageman has had the team adopt the “Drop the Hammer” motto and likened the season to a stonecutter trying to split a rock — it’s a process. “The idea behind it is to hammer away at the rock like a stone cutter might and maybe you hit the rock 99 times, but maybe on swing No. 100, the rock splits,” Hageman said. “It wasn’t just that hit that split the rock, but all those hits before it that worked up to splitting the rock.” The Spoofhounds will take the next swing at the rock tonight at St. Joseph Lafayette.
Bearcat women fall at UNK
Northwest men’s basketball beats Nebraska-Kearney in overtime
KEARNEY, Neb. – The Northwest Missouri State women’s basketball team fell to the Nebraska-Kearney Lopers 70-59 on Thursday evening. The loss drops the Bearcats to 4-8 overall and 1-4 in MIAA play. UNK improves to 6-7 and 3-4 in conference action. Junior guard Ariel Easton lead all scorers with 20 points on 8-for18 shooting. She also had five rebounds and three assists. Annie Mathews recorded her second-consecutive double-double with a 12-rebound, 10-point performance. Northwest shot 53.6-percent in the first half and jumped out to a 39-25 halftime lead. The first-half defense held UNK to just 26.8-percent shooting. In the second half, the Lopers hit 19-of-35 shots from the field while Northwest was unable to get on track offensively. The Bearcats head to Washburn Saturday for a 5 p.m. contest in Topeka, Kan. Northwest will host Northeastern State on Monday at 5:30 p.m. in a make-up contest at Bearcat Arena. That game was originally scheduled for Jan. 6.
KEARNEY, Neb. – The Northwest Missouri State men’s basketball team erased a second-half deficit to beat the Nebraska-Kearney Lopers in overtime, 73-68, on Thursday evening at the Sports and Health Center in Kearney, Neb. The win moves Northwest to 9-5 overall and 4-1 in MIAA play. UNK drops to 4-8 overall and 2-5 in league action. Senior guard Bryston Williams led all scorers with 20 points, including going 4-for-6 from beyond the arc. Sophomore guard Conner Crooker had 15 points followed by senior guard De-
Shaun Cooper with 14 and senior forward Dillon Starzl with 11. The Bearcats had 17 assists, led by Cooper with six dimes. Northwest shot 47.4-percent (27-for57) from the field and hit eight free throws, six coming in the second half and overtime. In the first half, the two teams battled evenly, playing to a 30-28 halftime advantage for Northwest. Neither team was able to maintain any leads as the game was tied at seven different points in the first 20 minutes. Down late in the second half, Williams hit a pair of big three
pointers to bring the Bearcats back to even with UNK. The Lopers had a chance to take the last shot of regulation but never got a shot off as the Bearcat defense forced a turnover. In overtime, Northwest never trailed, leading by as many as five on Williams’ fourth three pointer of the game. Free throws by junior forward Grant Cozad and senior guard Tyler Funk put the game out of reach as Northwest held on for the overtime victory. The Bearcats head to Washburn on Saturday evening for a 7 p.m. contest in Topeka, Kan.

Store greeter Mares profiled in new book By TONY BROWN News editor
Maryville’s most famous store greeter is now officially enshrined by academia. A book chapter focusing on the acclaimed customer service skills of Hy-Vee supermarket greeter Fred Mares was recently published as part of “Workplace Communication for the 21st Century: Tools and Strategies that Impact the Bottom Line.” The chapter, titled “Customer service with a smile: Creating a climate where customers come first,” was authored by Iowa State University Assistant Professor Tina Coffelt, daughter of Jerry and Esther Coffelt of Ravenwood. Coffelt, who teaches in Iowa State’s communications studies program, visited the Maryville Hy-Vee a few days ago where, along with Store Director Chris Wiltfong, she presented Mares with a copy of the two-volume work, which is being marketed to both
scholars and business professionals. Mares, widely known for entertaining customers with a seemingly endless string of jokes, stories and whimsical insights has been a fixture at the South Main Street supermarket for more than a decade. He greets many regular shoppers by name and frequently makes neighborly inquiries as to their families, social activities and hobbies. Mares is also notorious for cracking excruciatingly bad puns and keeping a running file of socially aware — or just plain silly — cartoons in his pocket that he pulls out whenever he thinks someone is in need of a laugh. Formerly a newspaper reporter in Kansas City, Mares won a Pulitzer Prize as part of a team that covered the 1981 Hyatt Regency hotel sky-walk collapse in which more than 100 people died. He is also the author of “Dear Coach: The Ryland Milner Story,” a biography
of the former Northwest Missouri State University athletics director. A fixture at local civic and charitable events, Mares is active in the Nodaway County Relay for Life and has been honored for his work with the American Cancer Society. An accomplished amateur performer, he frequently sings and plays piano at charity gatherings. In 2010, Mares was honored by the 230-store HyVee chain with the Legendary Customer Service Award, the corporation’s top employee recognition. The distinction led then-Mayor Chad Jackson proclaim Fred Mares Day. “Workplace Communication for the 21st Century: Tools and Strategies That Impact the Bottom Line” is a multi-author work that explores how communication functions within organizations as they interact with various stakeholders, including customers, clients and regulatory agencies.

crets must be kept if you want to prosper. Money matters will develop, and the information you have will require discretion. Love is prominent, but don’t mix business with pleasure. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A change will do you good. Visit a destination that offers something unique or could bring you in touch with someone unusual. Don’t instigate change, but welcome what does come your way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Travel in search of new people, places and interests that will help you broaden your horizons.

person.” If one wants to be the best at anything, it requires a lot of time and effort. But, occasionally, one can tie a world record without that much sweat -as in this deal. How should South play in six spades after West leads the club queen to declarer’s ace? When North raised to three spades, that promised some values. (Four spades would have been weaker than three spades.) Then South bid what he hoped he could make. With the side suits solid, the only potential problem is in the trump suit. An unlucky careless declarer would cash the ace and finish down one. A lucky careless declarer would play a diamond to dummy’s ace and call for the spade queen. Here, that works, but would be unsuccessful when West has all three missing trumps. The more thoughtful player works out how to overcome a 3-0 break ei-
ther way round. He might lead a low spade toward dummy’s queen. But since he may get an overtrick when East has the singleton king, South leads a diamond to dummy’s ace, then calls for the spade two. When East plays the three, declarer covers with his four, here winning the trick and tying one firstround-of-trumps world record. Finally, if East discards on the trump, South wins with his ace and leads back toward dummy’s queen.

KCPL to buy power from Holt wind farm KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Power & Light this week announced plans to purchase 400 megawatts of electricity from wind farms to be built in northwest Missouri and Kansas. According to a KCP&L release, the acquisition, in the form of a 20-year lease, will boost the utility’s total wind profile to more than 900 megawatts and provide enough electricity to power approximately 124,000 homes. The Missouri wind farm is to be built in Holt County about 20 miles northwest of St. Joseph and will be constructed and operated by Element Power. A second installation is slated for Coffey County in eastern Kansas. Each facility will be capable of producing up to 200 megawatts of electricity. Both are expected to be online and functional by early 2016.
“Together, these two new wind projects will nearly double the amount of clean, renewable generation in our energy portfolio,” said KCP&L President and CEO Terry Bassham. “This addition will be another step in diversifying our generation mix, which has already seen significant reductions in emissions from recent environmental upgrades made at several of our power plants.” According to the utility, both projects will allow KCP&L to take advantage of the federal wind tax credit that expired at the end of 2013. KCP&L claims that the move to add more renewable energy to the grid will create the largest energy efficiency portfolio, on a per customer basis, of any investor-owned utility within the states of Missouri and Kansas.
Plans made at R-II Continued from Page 1 Federal Emergency Management Agency. The grant funds, if approved, would be tied to the facility’s doubling as a community disaster shelter. As now designed, the gym is to be constructed on the south side of the high school and would provide an additional venue for activities related to such sports as basketball, volleyball and wrestling. The addition would also include a new boys locker-
room on the east end of the practice gym and an area above the locker room intended as a wrestling practice area. “Our next step is, basically, to get this fine tuned,” said R-II Superintendent Larry Linthacum. “We’re trying to address what we feel the facility needs are.” In other business, the board approved hiring a fulltime special needs teacher in order to accommodate two visually impaired students set to attend classes at the elementary school.

SADD chapter launched at R-I Student initiated effort turns into reality By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer
A dream of two West Nodaway R-I High School students has become a reality with the formation of a new Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) chapter. SADD is a national organization whose aim was initially to discourage drunken driving by teenagers. Today, its mission has expanded to include drug use, distracted driving and other risky behaviors.

and Ryan Marrison began considering a SADD chapter while looking for ways the district could address the issue of self-mutilation following a presentation during last year’s Family, Career and Community Leaders of America STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) contest. “We mentioned the formation of a SADD chapter during our STAR presentation as a tool to help with the problem of student selfmutilation,” Marrison said. “Once we looked closer into the process for starting a chapter, we decided to do it.” “It was aLOCATION dream that be-
