Neighbors in faith help family rebuild By TONY BROWN News editor
Theologians will tell you that faith exists, but that you can’t see it. But sometimes you can see it. Faith looks like a carpenter’s hammer. It also looks like a table saw operating smooth as silk under the guidance of skilled, callused hands. And it looks like a framed wall seemingly snapped together in minutes then raised high by clean-muscled, broadshouldered men on a clear, chilly March morning. Faith can also be found in the serene, wise face of Dale Byler, who appears to be anyone else in the world besides a 47-year-old man who, less than a week ago, lost almost everything he owned in a devastating fire 12 miles northwest of Maryville. The blaze destroyed both his family’s home and his business. The fire that leveled the Bylers’ residence, as well as the showroom and workshop that served as headquarters for Byler’s Woodworking, a custom furniture and cabinet shop, began shortly before midnight Saturday when an engine heater hooked up to a tractor parked inside malfunctioned. Byler, his wife, Mildred — an old Anglo-Saxon name that means “gentle strength” — and their children were in Montana at the time attending a wedding and taking a few days’ vacation. After the phone call came, the family hastened back to Missouri to find their home transformed into a charred ruin.

Rising to the occasion
A crew of Mennonite carpenters raises a newly framed wall earlier this week at the home of the Dale Byler family, which was destroyed by fire over the weekend. Then faith took over. The hammer kind of faith. The kind you can see. It’s impossible to describe what is occurring on the Byler homesite unless you know something about their Mennonite religion. The Mennonites are a Christian group consisting of church communities that trace their history back to Menno Simons (1496-
1561), a religious leader from what is now the Netherlands. Simons believed in a simple faith emphasizing the virtues of peace, simplicity, kindness, charity and brotherhood found at the core of Jesus’ teachings in the New Testament — the Sermon on the Mount. Though Mennonite tradition today has divided into a number of different forms
— from the relatively mainstream Mennonite Brethren to Old Order “horse-andbuggy” believers — this core remains and is perhaps best expressed by the biblical command to “love your neighbor as yourself.” And right now at the Byler place that ancient precept is turning invisible faith into action as solid and real as a two-by-four.
As members of their tradition have done since the Protestant Reformation, the Bylers’ Mennonite “neighbors,” which is to say about 60 people from three states, many of them skilled builders and carpenters, have rallied around a brother and sister in need. Less than two days after the fire, the rubble of the gutted home and workshop
was completely cleared. Then lumber and other materials started arriving by the truckload as volunteer crews transformed the property from a disaster area into a construction site humming like a well-ordered beehive. Thursday morning, as one group of men hoisted the framed north wall of what will be the new workshop See BYLER Page 12
Spring break safety being encouraged at Bobbypalooza By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer
Safe spring break
KEVIN BIRDSELL/DAILY FORUM
Sara Parks, a member of the Community Emergency Response Team at Northwest Missouri State University, shows students how to react if they come across an injured person. The demonstration was part of the Bobbypalooza safe spring break event held on campus Thursday.
Safe Spring Break Week at Northwest Missouri State University came to a climax Thursday with Bobbypalooza, a combination cookout and educational encounter designed to encourage students to make responsible life choices while away from campus March 22-30, a time when many young people traditionally head for warm-weather beaches and other resort destinations. The safety carnival took place on the Memorial Bell Tower lawn. Organizations represented included the Community Emergency Response Team, University Police, the Northwest Student Dietetics Association, To Write Love on Her Arms, Greeks Advocating for Mature Management of Alcohol, International Affairs, and Safe Rides.

“There’s quite a bit going on,” Jennifer Kennymore, a health educator at Northwest, said. “Things that students are excited about. Free food, free T-shirts and lots of fun free giveaways.” Booths, tables and activities covered such topics as water safety, impaired and distracted driving, international travel and the “buddy system.” University police officers grilled burgers and hot dogs, which were served free of charge. “It’s a way we educate and promote a safe spring break,” University Police Chief Clarence Green said. “It’s where we get all the students, faculty and staff out. We’re getting a lot of awareness about safe spring break activities and (the dangers of) driving while intoxicated. We have other information on STD’s, safe sex and safe party See SAFETY Page 3

Jason Eggers accepts position at Jefferson City High School By TONY BROWN News editor
Maryville High School Principal Jason Eggers, whose resignation was accepted earlier this week by the Maryville R-II Board of Education, confirmed Thursday that he has accepted a new position as an assistant principal at Jefferson City (Mo.) High School. A part of the Jefferson City Public School District, JCHS is a significantly larger operation than Maryville High and serves approximately 2,500 students, who are divided between a “freshman center” and a separate campus for grades 10-12. MHS has approximately 460 students who attend classes on a single campus serving all four grades. Asked for particulars with regard to his departure from the Maryville R-II district after seven years, Eggers, 39, replied only that he was offered a contract here for 2014-’15. He added, however, that “sometimes events hap-
MHS Principal Jason Eggers pen that cause you to want to challenge yourself.” He said he became excited about the Jefferson City job after learning the
position was open and described the school district serving Missouri’s capital city as “very progressive.” Eggers’ contract with the R-II district ends June 20. He is to begin his new duties on July 24. At Jefferson City, which operates on an academy system, Eggers will be in charge of the JCHS Academy for Industrial and Technology Engineering, a division that embraces academic courses in the so-called STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — as well as traditional vocational offerings like welding and building trades. Altogether, the district offers high school students a choice enrolling in one of seven profession-based academies covering such “career pathways” as business management, human services, and fine arts and communication. Eggers’ immediate family includes his wife, LaRena, and the couple’s three daughters, ages 11, 5 and 3.

Walnut St. in Maryville. The presentation will include artifacts associated with Noe Titus, who surveyed in the county between 1870 and 1900, and other local pioneers of the profession. All exhibits at the museum may be viewed following the program. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. Call Melissa Middleswart at (660) 582-8687 for more information.
CAPITOL NEWS Parents’ rights pending JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A proposed amendment to the Missouri Constitution that would enshrine a fundamental right for parents to raise their children as they see fit is pending in the state Senate. The House passed the measure 112-36 on March 13 before the Legislature began a weeklong break. The amendment states that parents have a right to make decisions involving the discipline, education, religious instruction, medical care, housing and “general wellbeing” of their children. Supporters say parents should have constitutional protections when it comes to raising children. If it passes the Senate, the proposed constitutional amendment would go on the November statewide ballot. It is sponsored by Republican Rep. Todd Richardson, of Poplar Bluff.
Bill extends registration JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Some Missouri lawmakers want to make it easier for members of the military to vote when they return from deployments. Missouri now requires people to register about a month in advance to be eligible to vote. The law sets the registration deadline as the fourth Wednesday before an election. But a Senate-passed bill now pending in the House would make an exception for members of the armed forces and their families who have been stationed elsewhere. They would be allowed to register to vote as late as the Friday before an election.

Northwest Missouri State University Police Chief Clarence Green (left) and University Police Officer Kevin Hawkins (right) flip burgers and serve hot dogs Thursday at Bobbypalooza on the Memorial Bell Tower lawn. Students who attended the event were given tips on how to stay safe over spring break.
Safety encouraged at Northwest Continued from Page 1 experiences. Everything you could possibly think of for safety.” This is the eighth year for Bobbypalooza, and Green said he expected a comeand-go crowd of about 500 people. The event also marked the tenth anniversary of Safe Rides, a nighttime shuttle service catering to students who may have overindulged at house parties or local
bars. “I think it’s neat that we can celebrate the tenth year of Safe Rides also,” Green said. “It’s responsible for cutting down on DWI’s in our community by 66 percent since 2004. It’s a great program that’s really grown. When we started it we only had about 200 users, but now we have about 16,000 in a year. And we’ve got new things to come next year.” Kennymore said the safe-
ty fair offered needed information to students on how to avoid the risks inherent in having a little too much fun. She said the exhibits related to distracted driving and water safety were especially valuable. Green was hoping a lot of students would take advantage of the emergency preparedness booth. “It kind of covers everything,” he said. “You want to make sure you have a safe place that you’re staying,
that you understand the fire exits and you’re not consuming too much alcohol. They’re really the one stop shop.” “It’s good to know they care about us,” said Northwest student Dana Masters. “Go out, have fun, but remember we want you to come back. We want you to come back safe. I think this is a great and beneficial event. Plus there’s free stuff and free food. It’s a good time.”
Pride of Maryville effort back for 2014
The coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), pictured above, was selected a few years ago as Maryville’s official flower in conjunction with the City Council-enacted Pride of Maryville beautification initiative. This spring, residential property owners and businesses are being encouraged to incorporate coneflowers, whose blooms embrace a number of colors, into their landscaping schemes.
MARYVILLE, Mo. — Back in 2010, the city of Maryville established the Pride of Maryville program with the goal of enhancing all aspects of the community’s appearance. City Hall announced this week that the program will resume April 1 and target a number of areas, including trash cleanup, weeding, volunteerism and beautification. Currently the initiative embraces three separate programs: Adopt-a-Neighborhood, beautification awards and Neighbors Helping Neighbors. Adopt-A-Neighborhood is a recognition program designed to spotlight the commitment of volunteers, both individuals and groups, who keep city streets and sidewalks free of litter, debris and weeds. Beautification awards are presented to homeowners and businesses who make exceptional efforts to improve and showcase
their property. Nominations for these awards can be submitted monthly to City Hall from April to October. Neighbors Helping Neighbors provides assistance to people wishing to connect with volunteers willing to help them in maintaining or cleaning up their property. In conjunction with the Pride of Maryville effort, the City Council has adopted the coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) as the town’s official flower. The perennial was chosen for its easy maintenance and drought-tolerant characteristics as well as for its wide array of colors. Residential property owners and businesses are encouraged to help beautify Maryville by using this flower in their landscaping designs. Fore more information about the Pride of Maryville initiative, go to www.maryville.org and follow the link to the POM homepage, or call City Hall at (660) 562-8001.

Bond issue addresses needs at Eugene Field
The Maryville R-II School District will be asking voters to approve a Bond Issue on April 8, 2014. The issue will allow the district to address a variety of district facility needs. Included in this project are several projects of new construction: Performing Arts Center (High School Campus), Auxiliary Gym (High School Campus), and a Kitchen/Cafeteria (Eugene Field Elementary). Additionally, the district will be doing some renovation of existing spaces in this project. The Eugene Field Elementary campus has been in place since 1928. If you have been by EFE in the last few years, you will note from the outside that there have been several additions to the original two story structure. In 1970, an addition was added to the east side of the building that added 10 new classrooms. In 1999, a new gymnasium was added to the building as part of the overall bond project that lead to the building of a new Middle School. Finally in 2004, the district added to the west side of the building with 4 new early childhood classrooms and new music, art, and an early childhood special services room. Significant renovations to the original two story structure were also a part of this project. The original two story structure was evaluated by structural engineers in 2013 and received a clean bill of health. Although the building is close to 90 years old, it is still in very good condition structurally. With the additions in 1999 and 2003, the Board of Education is committed to maintaining the elementary campus in its current location. HowLarry Linthacum ever, the long range planning R-II Superintendent process has included plans to continue expansions to the west as needs arise. The addition of a new Kitchen/Cafeteria is the first project in this process of westward expansion. The current Kitchen/Cafeteria is located in the original two story structure and is extremely undersized. Due to space limitations and our current enrollment, we are able to only seat one grade level of students at a time. With that being said, the lunch service period begins at 10:40 a.m. and ends at approximately 1:15 p.m. on a daily basis. We have some grade levels that eat extremely early in the day and by the time the day is over arrive at their homes very hungry. The other side of that conflict is true as well, with other students starting their day at 7:50 a.m. and not getting lunch until 12:40 p.m. Eugene Field Principal Holly Brady says: “I would like to strongly advocate for the addition of the new cafeteria/ commons to Eugene Field. Our current cafeteria is overcrowded. Students last in line to get their tray may have a shorter time to eat because of the next lunch shift beginning. A larger space and more efficient serving line would help both of these problems. It would also provide the extra space needed for student groups, assemblies, and teachers’ meeting. This is a space that would be used continuously throughout the day.” By adding a new Kitchen/Cafeteria it is anticipated that we will be able to push our lunch start time back by roughly 30 minutes and end the lunch process 30 minutes earlier. The new Kitchen/Commons will seat up to 250 students at one time. The design calls for two service lines which will allow for multiple grade levels to work their way through their line and to the eating area in a very efficient manner. It is planned that two grade levels will be able to eat at the same time. This will allow us to reduce the number of lunch shifts from five to three. These changes will provide a much needed improvement to the eating experience for our students and staff. By reducing the number of lunch shifts we will also be able to add flexibility to our overall master schedule. Our overall cost of food service expenses is also anticipated to be reduced by the increased ability to become more efficient and an anticipated reduction in staffing needs in terms of length of time that the lunch process takes during the day.

A VIEW FROM THE COUNTRY
Missouri Tobacco Money Kills
It is a simple truth that decisions of our legislature have consequences. Some are positive, some not so much. Too often the free flow of money influencing the decisions of the Missouri legislature produces negative results for all but those giving the money. You will remember that Missouri has the most lax laws in the country dealing with contributions to politicians. Basically, individuals and corporations can give as much as they want, often hiding identities behind secondary contributions to groups who pass the monies to the politicians. Missouri is the wild-wild-west of political influence through the unfettered flow of political contributions. Democrat, Republican, it makes no difference. The latest example of the consequences of special interest monies is the reprehensible policies Missouri has concerning tobacco. With the by far lowest tax on cigarettes in the nation, Missouri pays by way of increased, and long term, medical bills picked up by the public in one way or another. Tobacco kills, read the labels; in the meantime it produces all kinds of ailments. An example of the results of tobacco influence in Jefferson City can be seen in the recent news accounts concerning the billions being paid out to states from the major tobacco companies as result of agreements made in 1998. The agreements meant that states
had to pass laws banning suits against large tobacco and also make the smaller companies not a part of the agreement put monies in an escrow account to deal with future legal judgements. But these companies in Missouri and a few other states have
Richard Fulton gotten away with not paying all the monies due because the states simply did not make sure they did. Why not? Those rogue tobacco companies simply ignored the process and gave large amounts of campaign monies to politicians of both parties. This lowered their costs and allowed them to sell cigarettes at bargain prices.
Tobacco companies who pay the large amounts, typically Missouri has received $130 million a year, complained to an arbitration system. The recent results has been that arbitrators have agreed with these complaints that Missouri has not diligently enforced the terms of the multi-state settlement starting in 2003. As a consequence, Missouri will receive only about $69 million this year. Note that the attorney general of the state is responsible for filing suit against those who break the agreement and don’t contribute to the escrow account. In 2003 the attorney general was none other than our present governor Jay Nixon. Not a single law suit was filed to enforce the agreement in Missouri. Nixon as well as consequent attorney generals have urged the legislature to force price hikes of the cheap tobacco producers with stricter regulations. All to no avail. The Kansas City Star notes that Attorney General Chris Koster has warned the legislature for years that the tobacco monies were at risk. Yet, no action. Except by the arbitration boards that ruled for the 2003 year; and they most likely will also cut Missouri’s monies for the next five years at least. That’s $69 million the legislature will have to find for education, social service, and other areas already short of needed monies. Money talks, they say. In this case it shouts consequences include putting Missouri’s health and well being above selfish political interests.
The Official JasonOffutt Pokémon Headache Conundrum
The students were talking about Pokémon. What bothered me is I knew they were talking about Pokémon. I’m a grown man. I shouldn’t know such things. “I’m going to use Primeape for my profile picture,” one boy said. Apparently one month a year is “Pokémon profile picture month,” or some such thing, during which Pokémoniacs (or whatever they’re called) use a picture of their favorite Japanese video game monster to represent them on social media. I didn’t (and don’t) want this knowledge inside my head. I also didn’t want to know the students were picking their Pokémon picture for the month. I just couldn’t help myself. “Excuse me.” Of course I inserted myself into their conversation. I had to. My brain processed information it has no business possessing, embarrassingly understood said information, and had to get it out before my skull exploded. “Did you say Primape?” “Yeah,” the student said, preparing to explain what that meant. “You mean the evolved form of Mankey?” A look of shock sprang to his face. “Whoa, dude.” I kept walking having earned the title of Most Awesome Old Dude in History. And, no, I haven’t gotten a T-shirt printed that says it, although I could. I know too much about things I don’t want to know anymore. Like Pokémon. This popular Japanese anime somethingorother started as a vid-
eo game in 1996, a movie franchise/ TV show in 1998, a trading card game in 1999, and a source of stress for me
Jason Offutt since the Boy and the Girl decided this particular headache was something they really needed to latch onto. As a good parent, I learned what I could about Pokémon so I could have knowledgeable conversations with my children about something they were interested in. When I was a kid, all my dad had to worry about was baseball, which he liked. Then I discovered “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” and he just gave up. While my formal education in Pokémonese progressed, I began to
suspect two major problems: 1) I was getting pulled into semiweekly, stress-inducing Pokémon card games that were quickly becoming regular. 2) I was in no way going to unlearn any of this. Nope. Not a bit. Once you memorize the evolution patterns of the major Pokémon (an Americanized contraction of the Japanese “Pocket Monsters”), that knowledge is not going anywhere. If I’ve confused anyone up to this point, you’re lucky. The basics of the Pokémon game universe are: • People called “trainers” wander in the wild and capture these usually adorable creatures called Pokémon. • Trainers then force these doe-eyed anime versions of Disney woodland creatures to fight gladiator style until one of them loses consciousness. • The more these things fight, the faster they evolve into something new I have to learn. • The card games with my children last way, way too long. • Afterward I have a drink. • The end. If there were any Pokémon terms or concepts in this column you don’t understand, I’m not going to explain any of them. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’ve done you a favor. Thank me sometime. Jason Offutt’s latest book, “Across a Corn-Swept Land: An epic beer run through the Upper Midwest,” is available at amazon.com.

FROM THE PULPIT
Truth amidst the wreckage
We are in the middle of Lent. Our lectionary has us on a journey with the great figures of the Old Testament; stories of the creation, Adam and Eve, Abraham and Sarah, the Exodus from Egypt, King David, and more. It is known as a “short history of our faith journey.” Many of these stories are tough to read. There is violence, betrayal, brokenness, and death. It is not always a pleasant story. But part of the power here is in the working of the great questions by a people with God. Toward the middle of April we will enter Holy Week or the Week of Salvation, as the Orthodox call it. It is a story of cosmic drama and royal passion. It is not a tragic tale but a majestic story of how Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection serve God’s will and purpose. From the very beginning, the Christian faith has rested on the mystery that is Holy Week and Easter. “Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again” is our Eucharistic acclamation. The church’s story begins and ends with the Easter proclamation. This story is a story of a new creation, a world in which peace and justice, liberation and reconciliation, equity and unity, and the well being of all people is established. The story is a marvelous story of how we live in the mysterious paradox of acknowledging the most awful realities of life, never surprised by the awful condition of this world, yet remaining full of awe at the transforming power of sacrificial love. We cannot and ought not to evade the passion themes in our own lives and history; the threat of nuclear holocaust and the threat of terrorism, personal infidelity, the decline in a sense of public service, the loss of personal integrity, racism, sexism, hate, violence, nationalism – the list goes on. We are realists who retell the story; we know what human beings can do to ourselves and one another. We are well aware that justice and peace can be trampled down. Our human story knows no romantic optimism. No rope trick of positive thinking can escape the presence of evil in our midst. Nevertheless we tell the stories of the Old Testament and Holy Week and Easter because it is also a story about what God does in the midst of our brokenness. God takes that brokenness into God’s self and thereby makes all things new. That is the story line that runs through the Lenten and Holy Week narrative. It is not easy to perceive that truth amidst the wreckage of our world and lives. That is why we keep retelling the story of how Christ died for us and thereby lives for us; that we might live the stories of our own lives with hope and courage. Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter; these are all pieces of the story. Many will be in church on Easter morning. But to come only on Easter is to come for the fun part of the “week of salvation.” To come only on Easter is to miss the hard parts of the story. To come only on Easter is to miss out on the struggle we are all in and which makes Easter meaningful. I invite you to join on Palm Sunday and throughout the week. Then coming to Easter service will bring you the whole of the story; your story and mine. The Rev. Sidney S. Breese St. Paul’s Epicopal Church Maryville, Missouri

QUOTABLE “We are looking to improve every practice and every meet. We want to take many athletes to the state track meet. We want to continue our tradition of a strong track and field program.” -Maryville track coach Lori Klaus
2014 SPRING SPORTS PREVIEW
Maryville looks to continue tradition By JASON LAWRENCE Sports editor
Editor’s note: The Daily Forum will be previewing every high school team in Nodaway County as the spring sports season approaches. This is another installment of a series that will be published over the course of the next several weeks. The Maryville boys and girls track and field teams experienced a great deal of success last season. The boys won the Midland Empire Conference championship and took second at the Class 3 District 8 meet, while the girls were the conference runner-up and won the district title. Both teams are looking to building on that this year and improve during every meet, head coach Lori Klaus said. Klaus is entering her second season as head coach and eighth season overall with the program and is assisted by Michael Klaus, Jordan Moree, Nathan Powell and Connor Kellerstrass. Klaus said the goal is for both teams to win district titles this season. “We are looking to improve every practice and every meet,” she said. “We want to take many athletes to the state track meet. We want to continue our tradition of a strong track and field program.” The boys team took fourth at state last year, but do not return any of those state qualifiers this year. The girls return three state qualifiers from a season ago, including McKenzie Wallace, Abby Hayes and Jennifer Gullion. Wallace qualified in three events, finishing sixth in the 300-meter hurdles and missing the finals in the 100-meter hurdles. She teamed with Hayes and Gullion in the 4x400-meter relay, again just missing out on the finals, finishing 10th in prelims. Gullion just missed out on a state medal, finishing ninth in the long jump as a freshman. Maryville opens 2014 at the Nebraska City (Neb.) Invitational on Tuesday, April 8.

Mustangs ready to play By JASON LAWRENCE Sports editor
Editor’s note: The Daily Forum will be previewing every high school team in Nodaway County as the spring sports season approaches. This is another installment of a series that will be published over the course of the next several weeks. The North Nodaway baseball team is enthusiastic about getting started on its inaugural campaign. Head coach Andrew Webster said he has a mix of new players and ones with some summer league experience, but that he can’t wait to see what happens when the games start. “We have a lot of new baseball players mixed in with some players with summer league experience,” Webster said. “It is our goal to get the athletes to work together and improve daily. I want us to reach our potential as a team. We want to compete in every game with great effort and see what happens.” The Mustangs have a young lineup with three freshman and three sophomores in the starting lineup.
Webster will look to Koby Reynolds on the mound with senior Devin Brown as his battery-mate. Ben Hart, August Hoepker, Dakota Smyser and Peyton Coleman will make up the infield with Wyatt Tate, Fred Rios and James Leach forming the outfield corps. “We are a young team, but an enthusiastic one,” Webster said. “We are learning a lot right now and making strides in player development. I am very much looking forward to the season.” Webster, who will be assisted by Drew Bulbolka and Chris Schoning, added that Northeast Nodaway and South Nodaway should have an upperhand this season in the newly-formed Northwest Missouri Baseball Conference, since the Bluejays and Longhorns have been playing baseball for a number of years. “I would think that it would give them an edge at least in experience,” he said. “The rest of us North Nodaway, West Nodaway, and Tarkio/Fairfax are all brand new to high school baseball, so it will be fun to see how it all plays out.” North Nodaway opens the season on Thursday, March 27 at South Nodaway.

Cats put on offensive display KANSAS CITY, Mo. — With a two game total of 29 hits and 25 runs, the Northwest softball team defeated Rockhurst 13-1 in game one, then 12-7 in game two on Wednesday. The bats were out early for the Bearcats, who scored five runs in the top of the first inning, in game one. Northwest and Rockhurst both plated one run in the second inning. The Bearcats then put up six runs on four hits in the top of the third inning to take a 12-1 lead before adding one more in the fifth inning. Abbie Vitosh silenced the Rockhurst bats and went the distance for the win on her way to her fourth complete game of the season. Vitosh walked only one, while giving up five hits and allowing only one run and striking out a season-high seven batters. Torri Blythe went 4-for-4 with an RBI while scoring three times in the contest. Kristin Uthe went 3-for-3 with four RBIs as she hit her second long ball of the season over the left-center field fence. Northwest picked up in game two where it left off in game one, getting on the board in the first inning with two runs. The Hawklets plated one run in the bot-
tom of the first and then tied the game up at 2-2 with a run in the second. Baylee Scarbrough singled in Stephanie Mark in the third inning to take back the lead, 3-2. A three-run homer by Rockhurst in the bottom half of the third put the Hawklets up 5-3. The bats came back alive for the Bearcats in the fifth inning as they drove in four runs, and then again in the seventh when they added five runs. Rockhurst could only manage two runs in the bottom of the seventh as Sarah Baldwin got the win in the 12-7 victory. Chantel Adams was 3-for-5 in game two, scoring twice and driving in two runs while hitting her fifth home run of the season. Adams currently leads the Bearcats with 19 runs driven in this season. Baldwin moves her season record to 5-4 as she collected her fourth complete game of the season. Head Coach Ryan Anderson’s team will head to St. Joseph for the Missouri Western Classic this weekend. The Bearcats will play five games in three days beginning on Friday when they take on Concordia-St. Paul in a 10 a.m. start.
Northwest women’s tennis grabs back-to-back victories JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Northwest Missouri State women’s tennis team made it back to back victories in as many days as they defeated Missouri Western 8-1 on Tuesday, then took down Lincoln Wednesday, 9-0. Northwest took all three matches in the doubles competition and then took five out of six matches during singles play to claim
the 8-1 victory over Missouri Western. The Bearcats made it a clean sweep of Lincoln Wednesday winning all three doubles matches and all six singles matches for the 9-0 win. Northwest will head to Tahlequah, Okla. to take on Northeastern Oklahoma State Friday with the first match scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. start.
Gadbois having breakout sophomore season for Mizzou COLUMBIA, Mo. — Missouri redshirtsophomore Taylor Gadbois, of Maryville, is having a break out season through five weeks of play. Gadbois is hitting .473 so far this season, which ranks third in the SEC, after hitting just .103 last season as a redshirt-freshman. She is also on an all-time, program-best 19-game hitting streak, which surpassed the
18-game streak of Mizzou three-time AllAmerican Rhea Taylor, set in 2010. Gadbois is also second in the SEC in steals with 21 and has five multi-run games this season and had three multi-hit games in her five games last week. The slap-hitter also recorded her first career extra-base hit on March 14, hitting a double in a 2-for-4 performance against No. 9 Kentucky.

ASTRO-GRAPH FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 2014 by Bernice Bede Osol Stick to proven methods in the year ahead. Your abilities and know-how will continue to bring you success. Don’t succumb to someone else’s strategy. Have the confidence to carefully pursue your goal; a risky move could erase your hard work. Aim to please, but stick to your game plan. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may take some extra effort on your part to get things moving. Take your time, be persistent, and prepare to change your tactics if you aren’t getting the desired results. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Financial opportunities are present. Someone may try to include you in a dubious situation. Don’t damage your reputation or your integrity by becoming involved in something that goes against your beliefs. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A new solution to an old problem will come your way. Show concern and diplomacy when needed. Your objectivity and honesty may be called upon to defuse a professional disagreement. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Be more aggressive in your drive to get ahead. Decisive action will give you the payoff you are looking for. If you hesitate, you will miss out on an important opportunity. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A love connection is possible.

Bill Watterson said, “Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.” Bear that in mind as the weekend is about to start. However, another of
and mingle with like-minded people. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be thrown off balance by a troubling situation at home. Stick to your original objectives. It’s not the right time to make a commitment to a new venture. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Those around you are inspired by your knowledge and insight. Your confidence and ability make you a dynamic presence. Utilize all of your talents, and you will be sure to advance. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Try not to get stuck on one thing when there is so much to do. Your energy level is high, and you will accomplish more if you show greater diversity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -You may be easygoing, but don’t allow anyone to treat you badly. If you don’t stand up for yourself now, you will be taken for granted in the future. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - You will soon see the benefits of your hard work. A project that interests you will be successful if you keep your intentions under your hat for the time being. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -There is a positive atmosphere surrounding your domestic life. Be sure to spend some time nurturing important relationships. A home-improvement project will bring you closer together. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A misunderstanding is likely to arise. Take care of any matter that has the potential to lead to trouble. Do your best to find a solution and make any amendments necessary.
those words is relevant to today’s North hand: pointless. And sometimes you have to bid with a true Yarborough. South opens two clubs, strong, artificial and forcing. North responds two diamonds, weak, artificial and forcing. South rebids two spades, natural and forcing. What should North do now? Usually, with a very bad hand, responder gives a second negative: either two no-trump (traditional) or three clubs (modern), according to partnership preference. Here, though, with four-card support for opener’s major, responder should jump to four of that major. This indicates at least four trumps but no first- or second-round control: no ace, void, king or singleton. Against four spades, West leads the heart queen. How should South plan the play? Declarer has two heart losers, so can afford only one trump loser, not two. There is just one layout that will save South: ei-
ther opponent must have a singleton queen. Declarer should take the first trick and lead his spade king. And because this deal is seeing the light of day, you just know that will work. Finally, South might have rebid three notrump, which North would have passed because he could not be sure of an eight-card major-suit fit. (This is a bad sequence for Standard.) Then, if West had led a club, South would have had to make the same spade play.

Byler rebuilding project already well underway Continued from Page 1 into place, another of the helpers, wearing a characteristically Mennonite beard, walked up the broad driveway toward Route AB where a van and a trailer were pulling in. “Here come another 15 guys,” he said. While that was going on, Dale Byler, a stocky, solid man in a black watch cap and a brown barn jacket, was using a cell phone to order flooring while directing small groups of men going efficiently about various tasks without a blueprint in sight. Carpentry and building are longstanding Mennonite traditions, and many of the folks who showed up to help the Bylers operate construction businesses. They include Byler’s son-in-law, who owns Richmond Metal in Richmond, Mo., and who is providing exterior siding for the new house and workshop. Others wielding hammers at the Byler place are still boys, already driving flawlessly straight nails as they learn their father’s trade. But whatever their age, everyone seemed to be holding a tool and to know exactly what he was supposed to do with it.
“When you have a crew this size it takes a while to plan the day,” said Byler, cell phone in hand, though it was only 9 a.m., and the work seemed to be moving forward at breakneck speed. When he got few minutes to breathe, and talk to a reporter, Byler said he estimated the fire caused about $250,000 worth of damage, including his woodworking tools and thousands of dollars worth of handcrafted furniture. What’s more, his faith precludes him, as it does most Mennonites, from buying insurance. “We lost everything,” he said without apparent sadness or regret, simply stating a fact. God, he added, will provide in a time of crisis — and with a sturdy assist from his fellow believers, a concept Mennonites call “brotherhood helping.” “We believe we serve a great God,” Byler said. “He always supplies our needs just as we show our faith in him. That’s one thing I did tell my family — that when we all get to heaven, this will be just a temporal (worldly) thing.” Byler said he expects the new house and workshop to get its new metal skin by tonight. He also antici-
pates that the rebuilt workshop will be up and running sometime in April. Lewis Overholt is one of the men who is helping the Bylers rebuild. Both he and David Reynolds, who frames houses for a living, dropped everything and drove two hours from their homes in Oscaloosa, Kan., after learning about the fire. “We’re of like faith, and I just thought we should help in this situation,” Overholt said. “It’s the least we can do, I reckon.” Reynolds said his decision to lend a skilled hand was based on biblical principles. “We’re told to be Jesus’ hands and feet,” he said. “So this is something we can do. We are told to bear one another’s burdens.” Of course, rebuilding a house is one thing. Rebuilding a life is something else. And even someone with as much faith-inspired composure as Byler admits that losing the photographs and keepsakes of a lifetime is a hard thing, and that starting over after such a devastating loss will be difficult. Though the labor is being donated, the cost of much of the material will likely come out of Byler’s pocket. It’s going to be tough.

The sound of ringing hammers and table saws is filling the air this week at the Dale Byler homesite northwest of Maryville. Byler’s residence and furniture-making shop were destroyed by fire Saturday night but are being rebuilt by a crew of nearly 60 fellow Mennonites who have arrived in Nodaway County from church communities spread across three states.
