New administration at Jefferson C-123 By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff Writer

Insufficient evidence

TONY BROWN/DAILY FORUM

The Jefferson C-123 School District will have a new superintendent next fall for the first time in 16 years. Veteran schools chief Rob Dowis has announced that he will retire at the end of the current school year. The C-123 School Board has named current high school principal and boys basketball coach Tim Jermain as his successor. “I am excited to step into the superintendent’s role,” Jermain said. “Mr. Dowis has done a great job of leading our district for the past 16 years. My goal is to continue to lead Jefferson in our pursuit of getting better every day.”

Charley Burch Opting to promote from within, the board has also named high school teacher Charley Burch to take over as principal at the beginning of the 2014-’15 school year. “I am excited about the hiring of Mr. Burch as our

Tim Jermain secondary principal,” Jermain said. “Mr. Burch has been a valuable part of our current staff, and I am confident he will lead our staff as we strive to keep doing what is best for our the students of Jefferson C-123 schools.”

Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice, above, said Friday he acted “aggressively” — and correctly — in filing felony sexual abuse charges in the Daisy Coleman Case. But Rice added he had no choice other than to drop those charges when he found they were supported by insufficient evidence.

Rice: “Coleman case ‘handled the right way’” By TONY BROWN News editor

On the day after associate Circuit Judge Glen Dietrich accepted a brokered deal in which Matt Barnett pleaded guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment in the Daisy Coleman case, Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice said justice had been served. It was Rice who first filed, and later dropped, felony sexual abuse charges against Barnett after Coleman, then 14, claimed to have been raped during a house party that produced a dangerous cocktail mixing high school athletes, underage girls, alcohol and sex.

‘You have to make the final call based on the evidence you have.’ — Robert Rice

Last week, more than two years after the incident, which took place in January 2012, special prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said both she and the Coleman family supported the plea bargain in which Barnett admitted leaving a drunken, thinly-dressed Daisy Coleman outside her house in freezing temperatures just before dawn. The charge contained no allegations of sexual abuse and was identical to the one Rice filed several weeks after the party. On Friday, Rice, who was repeatedly accused in a widespread social me-

dia campaign of softening the original charges due to the Barnett family’s local prominence, stopped short of saying he felt vindicated. But he added that the outcome tallied with the evidence available during his original investigation. “More than anything, I think it’s just reassuring,” Rice said. “I think it’s reassuring to everybody that the case was handled the right way.” Rice added that Daisy Coleman’s testimony was crucial to moving forward with the sex charges, but that Coleman was unable or unwilling to establish at what point she became incapacitated by drink or unable to reject unwanted sexual advances. Baker, Rice said, encountered the same legal obstacle after being assigned to the case last October. “I worked by butt off on this case, and at the end of the day we did the right thing,” said Rice, who claimed he was “aggressive” in filing the original felony charges but acted correctly in dropping them as the investigation progressed. “Based on what I had at the time, I’d do it again,” Rice said. “But I still had an obligation to follow up on the initial investigation. You have to make the final call based on the evidence you have.” Rice said he ignored pressure to bring Barnett to trial for felony rape for the same reason Baker did — his attorney’s oath to follow where the evidence leads. “People were saying, ‘Well, why don’t you just go to trial and see what happens?’” Rice said. “But like the special prosecutor said, you take an oath not to do that. If the evidence is insufficient, it is your responsibility not to bring that case.” In other fallout from the Coleman case, which was covered by major news organizations worldwide, Maryville See RICE, Page 3

Literacy effort would write Rx for reading By TONY BROWN News editor

Pradnya Patet has a passion for helping children learn, and she believes opportunities for that learning should extend well beyond the classroom. Parents, neighbors, civic leaders, healthcare professionals, youth group volunteers — all have a responsibility, Patet said, to help the children in their community grow into the best and most accomplished people they can become. And the indispensable component of that growth is the ability to read. So Patet, who has a Ph.D. in child and family development and serves as the early childhood program coordinator for the

Department of Professional Education at Northwest Missouri State University, has put together a plan for getting more Nodaway County children hooked on reading as early in life as possible. “It takes a village to raise a child,” Patet said, quoting the African proverb made famous by the 1996 book in which former first lady Hillary Clinton set forth her views on raising children in America. Patet added that setting children on the path toward intellectual well being — and especially toward literacy — is nearly as important as ensuring their physical health. Which is why she is working to enlist local physicians in a community-based effort to put more age-appropriate books into the

Rotary is urging other local civic organizations to help raise the remainder of the $5,500 needed before the initiate can get underway. Patet said that doctors at St. Francis and its associated clinics perform about 2,000 well child check-ups each year, and that nearly 400 of those examination involve children who don’t attend pre-school.

hands of youngsters that need them. By bringing the national Reach Out and Read program to Maryville, Patet hopes to convince doctors to start “prescribing” reading for their young patients in much they way they might prescribe medication. Here’s how the program works: Pediatricians and family practitioners will be trained in strategies that promote literacy in young children. Then, during “well child check-ups,” they will use that knowledge to advise parents on the importance of reading while dispensing recommendations for daily family book sessions. Also during each well child check-up, which most children undergo once or twice a year between the ages of 6 months and five years, youngsters will receive a new book — tailored to their individual learning needs — to take home and keep. Over time, Patet said, children would receive up to 10 books for their home library. Patet also wants doctors’ waiting rooms to be transformed into “literacy rich” environments filled with gently used books and even staffed with volunteers

trained to introduce preschoolers and their parents to the pleasures reading together. Patet said receiving a new book from the doctor should be the first thing that happens during the examination. Putting a book into a child’s hands, she said, creates an immediate opportunity for physicians to evaluate reading readiness and other cognitive behaviors. “It gives them the chance to watch where the child is,” Patet said, “and it reinforces to parents the importance of reading.” As a scholar charged with training college students for careers in the classroom, Patet said Reach Out and Read also offers a unique opportunity to education majors, who would choose the age- and content-appropriate books given away at the doctor’s office. “That’s something we have that can be unique in Maryville,” she said, “to have that partnership between higher education and the medical establishment.” Patet, who hopes to launch Reach Out and Read this spring has been working with Dr. J. Michael Feuerbacher, a family practitioner at St. Francis Hospital & Health Services, to get the program off the ground. Involved as well is the Maryville Rotary Club,

Rice reflects Continued from Page 1 Mayor Jim Fall — who serves as the Daily Forum’s executive editor — said last week the time had come to move on, and that social media accusations about Maryville promoting “rape culture” were unjust. “I know that probably not everyone is satisfied with the legal determinations announced by special prosecutor Jean Peters Baker last week,” Fall said. “But I hope we can all accept that the legal system was asked to work, and it did. “The many derogatory remarks that were directed at Maryville and its citizens during the past months were undeserved and in many cases, unfounded — and hopefully that is over.” City Manager Greg Mc-

Danel’s office released a written response to the plea deal that said the Coleman case had left the community with “deep wounds.” “In the past few months, the city of Maryville, its citizens and its leaders have been the targets of several groups who have suggested the city is a place that embraces a culture of violence and hate,” the statement read. “That is not now, nor has it ever been the case. … Maryville is a city of good, hardworking people; this city is a wonderful place to live and work. “In the coming weeks and months, the city will continue working together with local community members (and) religious and educational leaders to continue the process of closure and healing. …”

Social Security

Danny Zimmerman Remember: Most people are automatically enrolled in Medicare Part B when they become eligible. If you don’t enroll in Medicare Part B when you first become eligible, you may have to wait until the general enrollment period, which is Jan. 1 through March 31 of each year. At that time, you may have to pay a higher Medicare Part B premium. What is Medicare? Medicare is health insurance for people receiving Social Security who are age 65 or older or those who have received Social Security disability benefits for more than two years. Some people are covered only by one of the four parts of Medicare; others opt to pay extra for more coverage. Understanding Medicare can save you money; here are the facts. The four parts of Medicare are parts A, B, C, and D. • Part A (Hospital Insurance) helps cover inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing care, hospice care, and home health care. Most people get Medicare Part A premium-free since it was earned by working and paying Social Security taxes. • Part B (Medical Insurance) helps cover services from doctors and other outpatient health care providers, outpatient care, home health care, durable medical equipment, and some preventive services. Most people pay a premium for Part B. • Part C (Medicare Advantage) allows you to choose to receive all of your health care services through a provider organization. These plans include all benefits and services covered under Part A and Part B, usually includes Medicare prescrip-

Medicare best coverage if you are 65 or older

If you are age 65 or older and haven’t signed up for Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance), now is the time to consider doing so. The general enrollment period for Medicare Part B runs from Jan. 1 through March 31 each year. Before you make a decision about general enrollment, we want to share some important information.

tion drug coverage as part of the plan, and may include extra benefits and services for an extra cost. You must have Part A and Part B to enroll in Part C. Monthly premiums vary depending on your state, private insurer, and whether you select a health maintenance organization or a preferred provider organization. • Part D (Medicare prescription drug coverage) helps cover the cost of prescription drugs. Many people pay a premium for Part D. However, people with low income and resources may qualify for extra help from Social Security to pay the premium and deductible. To see if you qualify for extra help visit www.ssa.gov/ prescriptionhelp. Most people first become eligible for Medicare at age 65, and there is a monthly premium for Medicare Part B. In 2014, the premium for most people is $104.90, the same as it was in 2013. Some high-income individuals pay more than the standard premium. Your Medicare Part B premium also can be higher if you do not enroll when you are first eligible, also known as your initial enrollment period. There also is a Medicare Part B deductible of $147 in 2014. You can delay your Medicare Part B enrollment without having to pay higher premiums if you are covered under a group health plan based on your own current employment or the current employment of any family member. You can sign up for Medicare Part B without paying higher premiums: • In any month you are covered under a group health plan based on your own current employment or the current employment of any family member; or • Within eight months after your employment or group health plan coverage ends, whichever comes first. If you are disabled and working (or you have coverage from a working family member), the same rules apply. It’s important to note that people who have Medicare coverage are not affected by the Affordable Care Act. Medicare is not a part of the Affordable Care Act’s Health Insurance Marketplace. If you are a Medicare beneficiary, your Medicare benefits are not changing. You do not need to replace your Medicare coverage with Marketplace coverage. For more information about the Marketplace, visit www. healthcare.gov. For more information about Medicare Parts A, B, C, and D, visit www.medicare.gov. Or read our publication on Medicare at www. socialsecurity.gov/pubs. Danny Zimmerman is the Social Security District Manager in Maryville.

The tale of two Harrys — one good, one not so much I like Harry Truman, the sensible and sartorial Missourian who graced the White House and was known for his energetic walks, propensity for accepting responsibility, and no-nonsense approach to governing. Good Harry. I like ornery Prince Harry. He is tall, dashing, and British as were my ancestors. He dresses well too in those costumes of royalty. Good Harry. I don’t like the equally wellgroomed Harry Reid, current Senate Majority Leader, who has come to symbolize Leftist self-interest with the same whispery elegance as Iago at Othello’s ear. If Obama makes a demand, it is done; if Republicans want to insert a little common sense into the political process, it is killed out of hand, toes up like a slaughtered messenger, cold and dead. Harry doesn’t even think about it. Conscience doesn’t bump into Harry Reid any more than truth. Bad Harry. Harry has never done anything to me personally, it’s just the ol’ rascal reminds me of Nancy Pelosi without the frozen hair and Spanx. Or perhaps it’s because he brings Buck Henry to mind except Buck is funny and Harry isn’t. Harry reminds me of the slightlyoff uncle who shows up for Thanksgiving dinner with his pants rolled to the knees and carrying a covered dish of suspicious content. During the meal he shapes an image of W in the mashed taters and whispers to no one in particular, “It‘s Bush‘s fault, it‘s Bush‘s fault,” over and over. Post turkey Harry retires to a lone chair under the pear tree where he whittles an effigy of John Boehner. When it’s time to leave, Harry takes the bus, trailing his blanket and cheap cologne, and packing leftovers in

blue Tupperware. He’s a sight, that Harry Reid. Now don’t get all upset. I’m just poking a little fun at Harry. I get to do that because Harry isn’t Barack Obama, and I’m not a rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair. Besides, Lefties gouge Righties all the time. With them, it’s an entitlement thing; with me, it’s something to do.

Larry Anderson Besides, I once heard a liberal call Republicans “Nazis” during a committee thing on C-Span. Seems the Repubs were resisting which is absolutely in their job description. And what about what Martin Bashir said about Sarah Palin a few weeks ago? Now that was bad! How horrible? Well, it was so awful, Bashir got fired, or resigned, or whatever from MSNBC which would rather eat a bloody steak than dump one of the brethren even after his big foot was firmly inserted into his toothless mouth. You’ll have to check the Internet for the content. Don’t let the kids hear. The trouble with Harry is he’s an

obstructionist. Harry likes to kill Republican measures on matters like health care changes and then claim they have nothing to offer and don‘t get anything done. Now, Harry has lots of power and an Obama-issued license to kill. If Harry doesn’t want a bill on the floor, it doesn’t go. Period. Democracy? Making things better? Being fair? Harry doesn’t care. Harry is easily the most partisan pol in the Senate, and that’s saying a lot because they’re all partisan. Dissenting votes within his party are as rare as an original idea. However, I doubt that it is all lock-step because it rarely is; some of that lack of resistance has to be gut-wrenching fear of Harry Reid. Vote the Obama line if you want to have a career in politics in my town is what Harry whispers to his colleagues. Harry Reid is so safe from the Repubs and dissent within his own party, he was able to exercise recently the so-called nuclear option and change the vote needed to override a filibuster to 51%. More power gathering for Harry and the Dems as we edge toward the Left’s goal of a oneparty system. Theirs. A check within the balance has been neutered like a pit bull pup. You may remember Reid was one of the principle architects of ObamaCare along with Obama, Pelosi, and HRC via HillaryCare. Well, Harry has now decided unilaterally many of his staff can be exempt from ObamaCare, his own legislation designed by fairness. Harry and the Dreamers love to make the rules, but that doesn’t mean they have to follow them. We do; they don’t. No siree, not this band. Larry W. Anderson’s alma mater is NWMSU.

Recent weak jobs report is puzzling to economists By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER AP Economics Writer

Signing securely?

PHIL COALE/ASSOCIATED PRESS

A Target customer signs his credit card receipt at a Target store. Target says that about 40 million credit and debit card account customers may have been affected by a data breach that occurred at its U.S. stores between Nov. 27, 2013, and Dec. 15, 2013.

Data breach affected millions of customers By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP Business Writer

Target’s pre-Christmas security breach was significantly more extensive and affected millions more shoppers than the company reported last month. The nation’s second largest discounter said Friday that hackers stole personal information - including names, phone numbers as well as email and mailing addresses - from as many as 70 million customers as part of a data breach it discovered in December. Target Corp. disclosed last month that about 40 million credit and debit cards may have been affected by a data breach that happened between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 - just as the holiday shopping season was getting into gear. According to new information gleaned from its investigation with the Secret Service and the Department of Justice, Target said Friday that criminals also took non-credit card related data for some 70 million shoppers who could have made purchases at Target stores outside the late Nov. to midDec. timeframe. Some overlap exists between the two data sets, the company said Friday. “I know that it is frustrating for our guests to learn that this information was

taken and we are truly sorry they are having to endure this,” said Gregg Steinhafel, Target chairman, president and CEO, in a statement. While Target investors have been largely unmoved, the incident has shaken shoppers. The company’s stock has traded at about $63 since news of the breach leaked on Dec. 18. It slipped just 67 cents, or 1 percent, to $62.67 in morning trading Friday. Target revealed on Friday, however, that the breach diminished holiday sales. The company cut its forecast for fourth-quarter earnings, a key sales barometer. The theft from Target’s databases is still the second largest data breach on record, rivaling an incident uncovered in 2007 that saw more than 90 million credit card accounts pilfered from TJX Cos. Inc. Target said in December customers’ names, credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates, debitcard PINs and the embedded code on the magnetic strip on the back of cards had been stolen. Target tried to woo scared shoppers back to stores on the last weekend before Christmas with a 10 percent discount on nearly everything in its stores. But Customer Growth Partners LLC, a retail consultancy,

estimated that the number of transactions at Target fell 3 percent to 4 percent on the Saturday before Christmas, compared with a year ago. “You have violated that person’s trust. And it’s going to take time to regain that trust,” said Brian Sozzi, CEO & Chief Equities Strategist of Belus Capital Advisors. Target lowered its fourthquarter adjusted earnings guidance to a range of $1.20 to $1.30 per share, down from $1.50 to $1.60 per share. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expect earnings of $1.24 per share. The Minneapolis company also said that it now foresees fourth-quarter sales at stores open at least a year will be down about 2.5 percent. It previously predicted those sales would be about flat. This figure is a closelywatched indicator of a retailer’s health. Target cautioned that its fourth-quarter financials may include charges related to the data breach. The chain said the costs tied to the breach may have a material adverse effect on its quarterly results as well as future periods. The company has 1,921 stores, with 1,797 locations in the U.S. and 124 in Canada.

Welcome to the

NEW

Forum maryville Daily

It came as a shock: U.S. employers added just 74,000 jobs in December, far fewer than anyone expected. This from an economy that had been adding nearly three times as many for four straight months ΓÇö a key reason the Federal Reserve decided last month to slow its economic stimulus. So what happened in December? Economists struggled for explanations: Unusually cold weather. A statistical quirk. A temporary halt in steady job growth. Blurring the picture, a wave of Americans stopped looking for work, meaning they were no longer counted as unemployed. Their exodus cut the unemployment rate from 7 percent to 6.7 percent ΓÇö its lowest point in more than five years. Friday’s weak report from the Labor Department was particularly surprising because it followed a flurry of data that had pointed to a robust economy: U.S. companies are selling record levels of goods overseas. Americans are spending more on big purchases like cars and appliances. Layoffs have dwindled. Consumer confidence is up and debt levels are down. Builders broke ground in November on the most new homes in five years. “The disappointing jobs report flies in the face of most recent economic data, which are pointing to a pretty strong fourth quarter,” said Sal Guatieri, an economist at

BMO Capital Markets. It’s unclear whether the sharp hiring slowdown might lead the Federal Reserve to rethink its plan to slow its stimulus efforts. The Fed decided last month to pare its monthly bond purchases, which have been designed to lower interest rates to spur borrowing and spending. Janet Yellen, who will take over as Fed chairman next month, “is probably scratching her head looking at the report,” said Sun Wong Sohn, an economics professor at the University of California’s Smith Business School. Certainly many economists were. Some predicted that the job gain would be revised up in the coming months. The government adjusts each month’s jobs figure in the following two months as more companies respond to its survey. Few analysts saw the sharp slowdown as the beginning of a much weaker trend. “There is a good possibility this is just a one-shot deal that could either get revised away or made up for in next month’s release,” Scott Anderson, chief economist at Bank of the West, said in a note to clients. Cold weather affected the report in several ways. Construction companies, which stop work during bad weather, cut 16,000 jobs, the most in 20 months. And the average workweek dipped as more people worked part time. An unusually large number of people missed work in December because of the weather, the government’s surveys found.

NEWS BRIEFS Bill would limit officials

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Openings for the top job at Missouri state agencies no longer could mean an extended reign by a temporary leader under legislation proposed in the state Senate. Permanent department directors chosen by the governor require state Senate confirmation while acting leaders do not. Sen. Bob Dixon said legislative approval of the officials running state departments is an important check on executive power. “They need to be confirmed by the Senate. They need to be brought forward, they need to go through the background check, go through the confirmation process and be fully vetted by the Missouri Senate,” said Dixon, R-Springfield. Under Dixon’s legislation, department directors would file a designation with the governor and the Legislature naming a deputy director who has the authority to exercise the director’s powers during a vacancy. Acting directors could serve for 120 days.

Authorities seeking infant

ANDERSON, Mo. (AP) — Police in southwest Missouri have issued an Amber Alert for a 6-month-old boy believed to have been kidnapped by his parents more than a week ago. The Anderson Police Department issued the alert Friday evening for Mitchell Farris, who’s been missing since Jan. 2. Police say the boy’s great-grandfather had custody of him. Police say the father, 34-year-old Preston Farris, took the child from the great-grandfather’s apartment. Farris is believed to be traveling with the child’s mother, 30-year-old Anastasia McDaniel. Police described Preston Farris as a 5-foot-10 white male weighing 230 pounds, with brown hair. McDaniel is a 5-foot-8, white female weighing about 200 pounds, with red or strawberry blond hair. Police say they may be driving a red 2004 Ford Freestar minivan with the Missouri license plate UH7D2R.

GOP against fed enforcement JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Having failed in an earlier effort to bar federal agents from enforcing gun laws in Missouri, state lawmakers are poised to make a new attempt this year, but with a twist. Missouri Republicans want other states to join the cause this time. They plan to delay the effective date of this year’s measure until other states have passed similar bills. Supporters say it will be harder for the federal government to turn a blind eye if more states are involved. The Missouri proposal would subject law enforcement officers to criminal and civil penalties for an “infringement” on firearms rights.A similar bill was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon last year, but Republicans hope to muster enough votes to override him this year.

Missouri to get more water

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Slightly more water than normal is expected to flow into the Missouri River this spring, but the dams along the river should have room for it. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says several of the reservoirs remain below normal because they are still recovering from the 2012 drought. So the Corps’ Jody Farhat says the reservoirs should be able to safely handle the 26.1 million acre feet of runoff expected this year. That forecast is slightly above normal runoff of 25.2 million acre feet. The Corps adjusts the amount of water released from dams along the river in response to conditions. Last year, releases along the water were limited because the Corps was conserving water as the region recovered from drought. That affected barge traffic on the river.

Man stole sanitizer for drinks ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a man stole 12 bottles of hand sanitizer from a central Pennsylvania hospital so he could mix it with orange juice and drink it for the alcohol it contained. Lee Ammerman, 51, has been mailed a summons requiring him to surrender Feb. 5 on charges of theft and receiving stolen property. Police say an employee at UPMC Altoona hospital saw Ammerman steal a bottle of sanitizer in October by hiding it in an arm sling he was wearing. They say Ammerman returned to steal more sanitizer twice in December. Police say they confronted Ammerman, who acknowledged stealing the sanitizer, saying, “I mix the liquid with orange juice.” The hospital is seeking about $80 in restitution.

Cat rescued from drainpipe

FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — A cat that spent at least three winter days in a northwest Ohio drainpipe has been rescued after initially refusing attempts to lure it out with tuna, the classic call of “here, kitty, kitty” and even a cellphone app that meowed. A Findlay resident heard the cat’s cries Wednesday. Groundskeepers at a school cut through the pipe Friday to free the orange cat, which was muddy, emaciated and hypothermic. The male cat has been named Piper. It has a broken leg and other injuries signaling it’s had a rough time. But things are looking up, with a number of people volunteering to adopt if it goes unclaimed. One veterinarian assessed the cat this way: “If they truly have nine lives, he probably has three left.”

Friday morning collision

Maryville Public Safety personnel wheel an injured driver into a waiting ambulance Friday following a two-car collision at First and Munn streets in Maryville.

One injured in First Street wreck One woman was injured shortly before 10:30 a.m. Friday in a two-car collision at Munn and First streets in Maryville. Names of the two drivers involved were not immediately available from Maryville Public Safety, but one of the motorists

was a U.S. Army National Guard sergeant driving a blue Ford Fusion hybrid sedan with government plates. The soldier was apparently uninjured. There were no passengers in either vehicle. An officer on the scene

said the accident occured as the Fusion was northbound on Munn and the second vehicle, a white Ford Escape driven by the injured party, was westbound on First. Airbags in both vehicles deployed, and the driver

of the Ford was placed on a backboard before being wheeled into a waiting Nodaway County ambulance. Both vehicles sustained extensive front-end damage and had to be towed from the scene.

Facebook friends start support group By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff Writer

Reaching out over the Internet has led to the founding of a new support group for local breast cancer patients and survivors. Peggy Shaw and Carolyn Coy have been using social media as a platform on which to organize the group, which will hold its first meeting tonight. “We found each other on Facebook,” Shaw said. “She was talking to me about how she wished there was a support group going on, and I told her it was funny that she would ask

because I’m trying to get one started.” Shaw had also been in touch with Tracy Martin, who works at St. Francis Hospital & Health Services, about the possibility of assembling a group of survivors, patients and family members who would get together on a regular basis. So once she and Coy got together, they approached Martin and settled on a meeting place and time. Shaw, who has been working to spread word of the group’s existence to others, said she is expecting a fairsized crowd for the first meeting, which is to get underway at 7 p.m. in

the St. Francis Hospital cafeteria Hospitality Room. Once the group, which is calling itself Life Beyond Breast Cancer, is established, Shaw said she hopes it can provide members with a variety of activities and resources. “Later on down the road we will probably have some events,” she said. “I think we will eventually have a speaker come in.” Current plans call for participants to gather on the second Monday of each month. For more information, call Martin at (660) 562-7086.

Budget battle looms at state Capitol JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Gov. Jay Nixon says he is optimistic. Missouri legislative leaders say they are realistic. For the first time in a decade, Missouri’s top officials can’t agree on how much money will be available for the state budget. The disagreement is expected to lead to instant disapproval from Republican lawmakers when the Democratic governor presents his budget as part of his annual State of the State address Jan. 21. Legislators already are making plans to cut the governor’s optimistic budget plan. That will mark a reversal of recent circumstances, in which Nixon has regularly cut the budgets passed by lawmakers while asserting he’s simply being realistic about the state’s finances. The current budgetary dispute stems from different assumptions about the growth of Missouri’s economy. But it also is rooted in different interpretations of a Missouri constitu-

tional provision that allows governors to control state spending. The bottom line is that an optimistic revenue projection gives the governor greater flexibility to curb spending should the money fall short. A more conservative revenue projection reserves a say for the Legislature if tax revenues surge higher. For more than two decades, Missouri has used a process in which economists and budget analysts from the House, Senate, governor’s administration and University of MissouriColumbia each attempt to project future state tax revenues based on a variety of economic factors. They then meet and work out a “consensus revenue estimate” — a figure that serves as the basis for the budget. This year, the Republican-led House and Senate announced a partial consensus. Leaders of the two legislative chambers agreed on a general revenue figure of $8.59 billion for the 2015 fiscal year that starts July 1 — a growth of 4.2 percent over the current

year. The governor’s administration wanted a revenue projection of $8.73 billion — a growth of 5.9 percent. Legislators insist their figure is the most accurate. “It’s trying to provide a realistic estimate as to what we think is going to come in next year,” said Senate President Pro Tem Tom Dempsey, R-St. Charles. Nixon notes that unemployment has fallen and the stock market has risen to record highs. “I’m optimistic about our economy,” the governor said. Even with a higher revenue projection, “I’m going to propose a fiscally responsible budget that protects taxpayers and core state services,” Nixon added. The governor already has outlined more than $70 million of higher education funding increases to be proposed in his budget. He also plans to propose a “significant down payment” on closing a $600 million funding gap for public schools.

KC osteopathic school starts expansion KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences is in the first phase of a $60 million, five-year expansion plan. It's a step forward for a university that is recovering from controversy that began in 2009, when thenpresident Karen Pletz was fired and several administrators resigned. Pletz was

later charged with embezzling more than $1.5 million, engaging in money laundering and falsifying tax returns. The university sued Pletz and she countersued before she committed suicide in November 2011. All litigation involving the school and Pletz has been settled, The Kansas City Star reported (http:// bit.ly/1aHOFHC ).

The new construction "demonstrates that we are committed to move forward," said Marc B. Hahn, the osteopathic medical school's president and CEO. "The only thing that we can control is what we do now. We have a great story to tell." Work began two months ago to convert Weaver Auditorium into an academic

center, and the administration building is being renovated. Other upgrades, which have not been fully detailed, are planned for the Strickland Education Pavilion and classrooms in Smith Hall. And in the future, the clinical training center at Kesselheim Hall is expected to be replaced by a 33,000-square-foot See SCHOOL, Page 12

Big first half paces Nodaway-Holt boys By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

Nodaway-Holt started fast and never let 275 Conference rival North Nodaway recover in route to a 72-51 victory Friday night in Hopkins. The Trojans came out on fire, scorching the nets for 24 first quarter points en route to a 24-11 lead. The scoring was balanced, as Jackson Beattie scored seven in the quarter, while teammates Ryan Ginther and Nick Patterson added six and five points, respectively. Much like the earlier girl’s contest, the second quarter was the real undoing for North Nodaway. Nodaway-Holt used continued defensive pressure and started asserting its height advantage on the boards to outscore the Mustangs 12-4 in the quarter to move out to a 36-15 halftime lead. Both squads picked up the offensive pace in a fast-paced third quarter as the Trojans increased their lead to 58-36. Patterson scored nine in the quarter for NodawayHolt, while Peyton Coleman, Fred Rios and Dakota Smyser tallied five points each for the Mustangs. North Nodaway outscored Nodaway-Holt by one in the fourth quarter, despite nine points from Trojan post Devin Albertson. Albertson paced the Trojans in scoring with a game-high 21 points. Patterson add-

ed 14, while Brice Shamberger with 11 and Ginther with 10, rounded out the doubledigit scorers for Nodaway-Holt, who move to 5-6 on the season. Koby Reynolds led North Nodaway with 13 points, while Dakota Smyser added 10 and Rios and Nick Gladman tallied nine points each for the Mustangs, now 1-10 on the season. “We played hard and we played a little better than we have been,” Nodaway-Holt coach Terry Petersen said. “We got off to a nice start, our press created some turnovers, and we did a much better job of getting the ball inside.” North Nodaway coach Chris Schoning was also complementary of his squad’s effort. “We played really hard, and honestly, we played about as well as we can play,” Schoning said. “We have to shoot the ball well and make some three-pointers to stay with a team as big as Nodaway-Holt. We’re such a young team, but we’re gaining experience and getting better every time out.” Both squads are in action this week at the 82nd Annual Fairfax Tournament. Thirdseeded Nodaway-Holt meets the sixth-seeded Savannah junior varsity squad Tuesday night. North Nodaway, seeded No. 8, takes on the top-seeded Rock Port Blue Jays tonight at 4:30 p.m.

Nodaway-Holt’s Megan Rosenbohm splits a pair of North Nodaway defenders for two of her 11 points. Nodaway-Holt downed the Lady Mustangs 66-32 Friday night.

Devers leads Lady Trojans to win By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

Good teams find ways to win and Nodaway-Holt proved that to be true Friday night at Hopkins, as they downed the Lady Mustangs from North Nodaway 66-32 in a 275 Conference clash. North Nodaway coach Doug Freemyer’s defensive strategy was to make someone other than Nodaway-Holt standout guard Megan Rosenbohm beat them. Offensively, the Lady Mustangs wanted to handle Nodaway-Holt’s press and score by getting the ball inside to standout freshman Madison Thompson. For the first four minutes of the game, both strategies worked well. Thompson scored eight quick first-quarter points, while Rosenbohm started cold for Nodaway-Holt. The Lady Trojans stayed close due to the hot shooting of Kalli Devers and as the first quarter wore on, their press began to take effect on North Nodaway. Despite Thompson’s early scoring flurry, the Lady Mustangs trailed 19-12 at the end of the first quarter, as Devers continued to shoot well and Rosenbohm began to warm up. In the second quarter, the defensive pressure created by the Nodaway-Holt press caused more difficulties for North Nodaway, and by halftime, the Lady Trojans stretched their lead out to 40-16. “Our press worked really well. It created a lot of easy shots for us,” Lady Trojan coach David Carroll said. “Nodaway-Holt is a very good team,” Freemyer said. “I felt like we handled the ball better against their press than we did the last time we played them, but turnovers re-

ally hurt us in the second quarter.” The second half proved to be more of the same, as the Nodaway-Holt press made North Nodaway play at a faster tempo than it was comfortable with, causing more turnovers and hurried shots. By the end of the third quarter, Nodaway-Holt led 53-26. Devers finished her night with 27 points, including 18 in the first half. Rosenbohm added 11 points, all in the first half. Frankie Lemar scored eight points for the Lady Trojans and Darci Gallagher scored all seven of her points in the second half. “Kalli Devers played an outstanding game,” Carroll said. “Not only did she shoot the ball well, but she handled the ball well and played well defensively.” Cambry Schluter led North Nodaway with 10 points, while Thompson finished with eight, as Rosenbohm’s defensive work inside the Nodaway-Holt zone defense kept her from being more of a factor after her first-quarter scoring flurry. “Normally, Rosenbohm plays on the offensive left side of their press and we prepared for that,” Freemyer said. “Even though we have a left-handed guard (Erin Greeley), we’re still pretty right-handed when attacking the press and when she moved to the other side of their press, she really caused problems for us because she’s so quick and anticipates so well.” Both teams will be in action in the 82nd Annual Fairfax Tournament this week. Fourth-seeded North Nodaway , now 5-7 on the season, clashes with fifth-seeded CraigFairfax tonight, while top-seeded NodawayHolt, now 11-0 on the season, received a first-round bye and awaits the winner of the Craig-Fairfax/North Nodaway contest on Wednesday evening.

Defense played a big role in South Nodaway’s 34-30 loss to Osborn last Friday night, the Longhorns’ first contest of the new year. The game was a low scoring affair with quite a few steals for both teams. The Wildcats held a 17-14 lead at halftime. The second half opened up with more lock down defense from the Longhorns, who were able to snag a quick 20-19 lead midway through the third quarter. After grabbing the lead, the Wildcats were able to pull back ahead and didn’t give it up the rest of the game. The Longhorns lost 34-30, despite a late rally. With the loss, the Longhorns drop to 3-7 on the season. “You have to focus on the positive things,” head coach Dustin Skoglund said.

“I thought we played hard. We were in it in the end. We are a better basketball team than what we showed tonight, but we had a month off and it definitely showed.” The Longhorns were able to keep the game close by getting good shots, but the shots weren’t falling most of the game. “We shot 26-percent from the field,” Skoglund said. “It’s been a month since we had a game. Christmas break was a little bit scattered and I definitely think that that had an impact. We need to strive for better consistency as a basketball team. That’s been problem of ours all year and is continuing to be a problem.” Seniors Damien Willmore and Dalton Murphy lead the Longhorns in scoring with nine points each. The Longhorns open up tournament play in the Stanberry Tournament on Monday night against Jefferson at 9 p.m. in Stanberry.

To start this week, for a change of pace, let’s have some golf trivia questions. First, how far did the longest drive go on the PGA tour last year?

change others. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You should follow common sense, not your emotions. Unpredictability will not get you closer to your goal. Your inclinations for excess and evasion should be reined in via discipline and moderation. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Listen before taking action. You will end up in a no-win situation if you are too quick to judge. Focus on love and showing your loyalty through action. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Make alterations to the way you present who you are and what you can offer. The impression you make will give you the upper hand in any competitive arena you enter. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Be aware of the influence you have, and offer constructive suggestions and hands-on help. Your actions will affect how others treat you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don’t expect talks to occur without a hitch. Controversy can be expected, along with uncertainty, disagreements and a debate that will require a well-rounded point of view. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You need to listen instead of talking. Protect your health and your wealth. If you make a snap decision, you can expect opposition. Focus on self-improvement, romance and keeping the peace. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You should make abrupt changes in order to take everyone by surprise and buy time to maneuver your way into a key position. Use your intelligence and make things happen.

Having been asked that question, you are probably expecting today’s deal to be a grand slam, the longest drive in bridge. Instead, though, here is a small slam. However, if you played it during a tournament and went down, it would make the drive home feel very long. South is in six spades. West leads the diamond two. How should declarer plan the play? South had a textbook three-spade opening: a good seven-card suit and some 6-10 high-card points. North used Blackwood, hoping his partner had the spade ace and a minor-suit king, which would probably have made seven no-trump laydown. When South denied an ace, though, North had to be content with six spades. (Yes, he should have signed off in six notrump, to avoid a potentially fatal minor-suit lead. But that would have ruined the story.) The careless declarer would win the first trick and immediately play a trump.

But East would win with his ace and give West a diamond ruff. Leading a low card usually guarantees at least one honor in that suit. South, though, can see all five diamond honors. So he should fear that the lead is a singleton. Before playing a trump, declarer should cash dummy’s top hearts and discard his remaining diamond. Then he can lead a trump and claim shortly thereafter. Phil Mickelson hit the longest drive at 450 yards. His ball rolled a long way down a cart path.

Ministry Center is seeing increase in families served Maryville Ministry Center board member Dave Weichinger said last week that more families than ever are depending on the local food pantry for nutritional assistance In November and again in December, Weichinger said, more than 200 Nodaway County families received supplemental food from the pantry, which operates with an allvolunteer staff. In addition, the Ministry Center is continuing to partner in 2014 with area schools and Community Services Inc., a local nonprofit social services agency, to administer the Backpack Buddies program. The county-wide initiative provides “kid friendly” food parcels to 260 children from low-income families each weekend during the school year. Weichinger said the center depends exclu-

sively on cash and in-kind donations from individuals and organizations to fund its programs. Among those supporting the pantry this winter have been the residents and staff of Bristol Manor Senior Adult Living Facility, who recently donated 214 pounds of food. Throughout December, Bristol Manor accepted donations of non-perishable food items from visitors, then had the food delivered to the center, which is located at 971 S. Main St. Anyone interested in helping support the charity during the coming months is invited to attend the center’s annual meeting, scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, at the First Presbyterian Church of Maryville. The church is located on the southeast corner of Main and Jenkins.

Pope, new cardinals reflect emphasis on poor VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis named his first batch of cardinals on Sunday, choosing 19 men from Asia, Africa, Latin America and elsewhere, including the developing nations of Haiti and Burkina Faso, in line with his belief that the church must pay more attention to the poor. Francis made the announcement as he spoke

from his studio window to a crowd in St. Peter’s Square. Sixteen of the appointees are younger than 80, meaning they are currently eligible to elect the next pope, which is a cardinal’s most important task. The ceremony to formally install them as cardinals will be held Feb. 22 at the Vatican. A U.S.-based advocacy group for people who have

been sexually abused by clergy criticized one of the pope’s appointments and also said he should have promoted an archbishop in Ireland to cardinal’s rank. Since his election in March as the first pontiff from Latin America, the pope has broken tradition after tradition in terms of protocol and style at the Vatican. But in Sunday’s list

Francis stuck to the church’s rule of having no more than 120 cardinals eligible to elect the next pontiff. The College of Cardinals is currently 13 shy of that 120-mark among eligibleto-vote members. In addition, three cardinals will turn 80 by May. That means Francis chose the exact number of new cardinals

needed to bring the voting ranks up to 120 during the next few months. Some appointments were expected, including that of his new secretary of state, the Italian archbishop Pietro Parolin, and the German head of the Vatican’s watchdog office for doctrinal orthodoxy, Gerhard Ludwig Mueller. Two others named

Sunday also come from the curia, as the Holy See’s Rome-based bureaucracy is known. The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said the pope’s selection of churchmen from Haiti and Burkina Faso reflects Francis’ attention to the destitute as a core part of the church’s mission.

Hahn, who began his job last July, said he also plans to improve the university's relationship with the city, particularly in the northeast area where the university has been located since 1916. The university recently agreed to allow seven of its professors to treat patients at the Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center, a clinic for low-income residents, said university spokeswoman Lisa Cambridge. Faculty and medical students also work with neighborhood residents to tend a community garden

that produces 2,000 pounds of fruit and vegetables a year. With nearly 1,000 medical students, the university is the 14th largest medical school by class size in the country. It is the largest in Missouri or Kansas and is the second leading producer of primary care physicians in the two states. The university also hopes to increase its enrollment by 50 percent or more through its two bioscience master's programs, additional bioscience programs and the possible opening of satellite campuses. "As we do well, so does the neighborhood," Cambridge said.

Saved by the rail

PHIL COBB/DAILY FORUM

A 1988 Jeep Wagoneer, driven by Amber Proffit, is shown here after it came to rest on a guardrail Friday afternoon at the intersection of Highway 71 and Hawk Road. The guardrail, broken completely in two by the impact, saved Proffit from traveling into an adjacent ravine.

Guardrail saves motorist A 33-year old Maryville woman suffered minor injuries when she failed to stop at the intersection of Hawk Road and Highway 71 three miles north of Maryville, Friday. According to the Highway Patrol report, Amber Proffit was driving a 1988 Jeep Wagoneer southbound on Hawk Road, failed to stop at a stop sign, then traveled across Highway 71, striking and coming to rest on a guardrail. The impact severed the guardrail in two. Proffit was not wearing a seat

belt at the time of the accident, according to the report. Cpl. T. Ziegler of Troop H worked the accident and was assisted by the Nodaway County Sheriff’s department. “I’m sure that the fog was a factor,” Sheriff Darren White said. According to White, Proffit’s vehicle was not insured and did not have license plates at the time of the accident. She was taken to St. Francis Hospital by private vehicle.
