Branching out

Arboretum took roots 20 years ago

By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer

Designated the Missouri State Arboretum by the Legislature in 1993, Northwest Missouri State University on Monday celebrated 20 years of maintaining one of Missouri’s most diverse and valuable tree stands. To commemorate the anniversary, landscaping and grounds crews, assisted by more than a dozen campus organizations and visiting dignitaries, planted 20 trees across the street from Forest Village Apartments. At a luncheon prior to the tree planting, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Jean Brennan addressed a group of spectators about the arboretum and noted the rarity of having so many different species of trees in one place — more than 135, according to Northwest landscape/sustainability manager Travis Stokes. “This is about pride,” said Northwest President John Jasinski. “Our faculty, staff and students take such pride. But it’s not just them; it’s the community. It’s a much larger community, for when alumni and other visitors come in. It’s huge. We will take walks throughout the summer and visit all kinds of people that come specifically to campus to see the Missouri Arboretum.” Of the 20 new trees planted on Monday, one brand-new species was brought to campus, a Dragon Eye Pine.

Rural Missouri applauds Mozingo golf By TONY BROWN News editor


Tee to green

A Mozingo Lake Recreation Park golfer tees off on hole No. 8. Hailed by city officials as a growing attraction across northwest Missouri, the city-owned course was recently recognized as an “Editor’s Choice” by “Rural Missouri” magazine.




Record....................... 2 News.................... 3, 12 Opinion..................... 4

Recent recognition by a statewide magazine means that the municipal golf course at Mozingo Lake Recreation Park is beginning to meet expectations as a regional recreation destination, Assistant City Manager Ryan Heiland said Monday. Mozingo was picked this spring as the “Editor’s Choice” for golf courses in a special Best of Rural Missouri Edition of “Rural Missouri,” a widely circulated magazine produced by the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives. Heiland said the recognition was both welcome and unsolicited, and that the magazine’s editors made their pick after coming to Maryville and playing the course. The publication chose Bent Creek Golf Course in the southeast Missouri city of Jackson as its premier golfing destination in the state. Its No. 2 pick was the Ste. Genevieve Golf Club. As the Editor’s Choice, Mozingo was described as an “ award-winning championship course that is fun for the beginner and challenging to the advanced player. Designed by Donald Sechrest, the 18-hole course is nestled among rolling hills, native grass-

lands and wooded areas and has established itself as a premier golf destination …” An e-edition of the magazine featuring Mozingo can be viewed at story1.php. “This just came about from the editors having golfed here before, and they obviously liked the course and its amenities,” said Heiland, who acts as the city’s point man for golf operations at the 3,000-acre park, where the 1,-000-acre lake also serves as the city’s primary water supply. “I think it’s a good thing whenever people recognize the quality of the work our staff members do out there and just the quality of the course itself,” Heiland said. “And when you can reach a statewide audience, it certainly improves our ability to become a regional park.” Heiland said a number of behind-the-scenes changes and improvements have taken place at Mozingo this year in preparation for a new golfing season, including the arrival of GolfNow as the course’s new website host. Upgrades mean that golfers can now book tee times online and gain access to other information with regard to special outings and clubhouse promotions, he said.

CAPITOL NEWS $200K spent on junkets

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Industry and special interest groups have spent more than $200,000 in the last three years on trips for Missouri lawmakers. Records reviewed by The St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper showed the travel-related spending in many cases included airline tickets, hotel rooms, meals and convention fees. While the lobbyist spending is legal in Missouri, critics say the practice creates conflicts of interest when legislators go to vote on issues important to those lobbyists and industries. Those who defend lobbyist spending say providing trips focused on giving lawmakers valuable information is not the same thing as plying legislators with perks. The Missouri Biotechnology Association, which promotes the growth of Missouri’s biotechnology and biomedical industries, spent more than $40,000 between 2011 and 2013 on tours of Missouri biotech facilities and other events in Missouri.

Farmers hoping for April showers By JIM FALL

Executive editor

MARYVILLE, Mo. — Recent rainfalls have teased northwest Missouri farmers, many of who have already begun the spring planting ritual. Monday’s thunderstorms, coupled with last week’s mostly less-than-aninch of precipitation, which varied greatly across Nodaway County and the entire area, did little, however, to alleviate the substantially short availability of both topsoil and subsoil moisture throughout the area. Topsoil moisture in the Northwest region, as reported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service as of April

21, was estimated at 37 percent “short” and six percent “very short.” Subsoil readings were pegged at 35 percent “short” and 36 percent “very short” for the same period. Despite those conditions, area farmers had already put an estimated 18 percent of their 2014 corn crop in the ground, disregarding historical statistics that peg the last chance for frost across the northern tier of Missouri counties as April 20. And there was an unseasonable snow in Maryville May 3, 2013. Nodaway County producers harvested some 132,000 acres of corn during the 2013 season. They had planted 137,000 acres. Harvest totals provided by NASS

indicated that the county production average was 129.8 bushels per acre, yielding a total of 17.7 million bushels. The 2013 soybean crop in Nodaway County saw 139,000 acres harvested from the 140,000 acres planted. An average harvest of 39.2 bushels per acre yielded an estimated to soybean crop in the county of approximately 5.5 million bushels last year. Although soybean plantings are estimated to be some 6 percent higher nationally this year than last, Missouri producers are apparently not following that trend and are planning to plant at the same level as in 2013. The national estimate for the upcoming corn crop is down 4 percent nationally.

Criminal code likely on way to Gov. Nixon

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are poised to send Gov. Jay Nixon legislation to overhaul the state’s criminal laws. House Majority Leader John Diehl says the chamber will vote on a measure that passed the Senate earlier this year. An affirmative House vote would send the bill to Nixon, who has expressed concern over the bill’s size and scope. The measure creates new classes of felonies and misdemeanors, and reorganizes crimes to fit the new penalty structure. Some crimes, such as possessing small amounts of marijuana for the first time, would be punished less severely than under current law. But other crimes, including child molestation, would carry longer possible prison sentences.

Senator wants Koster’s opinion on gun bill

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Republican state senator wants to know the opinion of Missouri’s top law enforcement official on legislation that seeks to nullify some federal gun laws. Sen. Will Kraus, of Lee’s Summit, sent a letter to Attorney General Chris Koster’s office on Monday asking him to weigh in on the bill’s constitutionality. The measure would declare “null and void” past, present and future laws deemed to be infringements on gun rights. A spokesman for Koster confirmed the office received the request, but didn’t comment further. The Democratic attorney general raised concerns about a similar bill last year that he said would have hurt cooperation among law enforcement agencies. Both the House and Senate have passed the separate versions of the measure this year. Kraus voted in favor of the Senate bill.

Can you dig it?

Dignitaries helped plant 20 trees Monday while celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Missouri State Arboretum, otherwise known as Northwest Missouri State University.

Arboretum celebrates 20 years Continued from Page 1 something Stokes relishes. “It’s a bit of a dream,” he said. “I came to school here at Northwest and thought it would be nice to work for the grounds. Then, when I started it progressed, and now here I am. I’m kind of running it. It’s fun.” Ever since achieving the state designation, Northwest has placed a priority on tree diversity and care. “We have a high standard,” Stokes said. “We have a tree care program that we’ve implemented and we run with that. It’s proper pruning, watering and overall plant healthcare.” It’s a strategy, he added, that depends heavily on a highly trained and dedicated staff . “This staff that I have, they’re great,” Stokes said. “I could not ask for a better group of people. I’ve got 22 fulltime staff and another 18 students that

work part-time with us. I’ve got a heck of a staff and they’re great.” “Our staff is unbelievable,” Jasinski seconded. “There’s no way that I can express in words how important their work, their craftsmanship, is. A lot of what they do you don’t see. We had one of the toughest winters in the last 20 years, and its impact on the environment is well known. And, our staff makes it look rather nonchalant. You look around and say ‘Wow, it doesn’t look we had too bad of a winter.’ But the answer is, our staff is top notch.” The high standards have not gone that the grounds crew is kept has not gone unnoticed. “Serenity, elegance, beauty and safety are hallmarks, or DNA if you will, of our campus,” Jasinski said. “If you think about hosting so many visitors, whether it be perspective students, alumni or other visitors, it makes you feel very good that you can provide that atmosphere for young and old and

everybody in between.” Stokes is hoping the anniversary celebration will help spread the word about Northwest’s commitment to its role as a wooded showplace. “We’re just trying to develop a little awareness that Northwest has the state arboretum,” Stokes said. “That’s kind of the point today. We’re just trying to raise awareness, plant a few trees and celebrate Arbor Day.” Also on Monday, Northwest was named a Tree Campus USA through the Arbor Day Foundation. Universities that receive the honor must establish a campus tree advisory committee, write a campus tree care plan, budget funds for tree planting and care, hold an Arbor Day observance and conduct a tree-oriented service learning project. As part of that effort, Stokes announced the development of a cell phone app capable of providing information about the arboretum to visitors, students and staff.

The City of Maryville is looking to the future. But the city is not just looking toward what lies ahead. In a series of steps which run counter to the programs many other communities of comparable size follow, Maryville is taking a proactive approach and doing some real future planning. Some long-range future planning. Under the terms of contracts signed with SK Design Group, Inc., Overland Park, Kan., and RDG Planning and Design of Omaha, the two firms are poised to begin developing long-term solutions for one significant current city problem and a second equally important, if not so pressing, a concern. The more critical of the two studies deals directly with traffic problems and the unsightly appearance which have long plagued South Main Street, from the South Avenue intersection to the thoroughfare’s intersection with Highway 71 at the south city limits. After an extensive selection process, SK Design Group was selected to prepare the much-needed traffic study for South Main. Work is expected to begin before month’s end to collect traffic counts along South Main, especially at principal existing and potential intersections and proposed intersection sites. Much of the planning work, however, will be focused on developing alternative and/or supplemental means to more smoothly move north-south traffic from the city’s Downtown area to and through the south part of the city. The overall SK project, which should be complete around the end of the year, is contracted at a cost not to exceed $65,000. After a similar selection process, RDG was picked to develop a comprehensive plan for the on-going growth at the city’s Mozingo Lake Recreation Park. Cited by several potential developers as critical to decisions related to the possible construction of a lodge and conference center at the lake located east of Maryville, coming up with a comprehensive plan for the ultimate utilization of the 3,000 acres included in the resource is the realistic “next step” in the best-use development of the area. RDG is operating under a budget of $58,000 for the Mozingo plan, which is expected to be completed by the end of August. Both expenditures have been included in city budget discussions for the past two years and while the estimated $123,000 is a lot of money, it is money being well spent. Improvements in the traffic flow along South Main, and the enhancements in developments along that corridor and in the vicinity will generate city revenues far in excess of the current costs. The same holds true for Mozingo. If it takes a formal plan to obtain a commitment for a lodge and conference center, that, too, is money well spent.

I always try to be green. No, not necessarily as in Bearcat, or Spoofhound. As in recycling. Doing my small part to help conserve this planet, Earth, the place we call home. I save aluminum cans — more so from Diet Cokes than from Bud Lights nowadays, but I save them all, just the same. As an aside, before we get into the meat of this dissertation, I was most surprised when I went into an area convenience store over the weekend to buy a snack to find my refreshment of choice — Diet Coke — available in a tall, cold, 16-ounce aluminum can. I have grumbled ever since the more popular, to me anyway, 12-ounce cans began to disappear from most store’s coolers in favor of the larger, and more disgusting, plastic bottles. Sixteen ounces is too much to have to drink with a package of peanut butter crackers, and plastic is just simply disgusting. But back to the main point of discussion for today. What do you ask for when you go into a store in quest of a cold drink? And “a bottle of water” is not an acceptable answer. Personally, I am in the minority, both here and nationally. I call a Coke a “coke.” Heck, I call any soft drink a coke. Don’t ask me why. All I know is that in recent surveys conducted nationally — some folks really must have very much to do, at all — the winner by a very few carbonation bubbles was “soda” over “pop.” The United States total was 40.84 percent preferred soda; 39.38 percent went with pop. Well, I do know why I call ‘em, cokes. I’m from Arkansas, and that’s the favored nomenclature there for any soft drink. It’s favored by 72 percent of the drinking population. That’s all I ever called any thing to drink, except water — a coke. RCs, Dr. Peppers, Grapettes. They were all cokes to me back when I was a kid and could kick back a Grapette in a single swig.

Information you didn’t know you really do need to know So, with that geographic history, you can just imagine my chagrin when we moved to Albany after purchasing The Albany Ledger. Aside from being the home of The Ledger, Gentry County was also the home of Smokey Rainey’s Pepsi-Cola bottling company. And believe me, Cokes were hard

to come by in Albany. Heck, anything but a Pepsi was pretty much an endangered species. They hardly even stocked them in the grocery stores. Outside of Smokey’s area of influence in northwest Missouri, however, the overwhelming favorite name for a carbonated beverage in Missouri is soda. Soda is requested by 71 percent of the aforementioned survey respondents residing in the Show Me State. Pop got 20 percent of the Missouri support. Conversely, in my native Arkansas, coke is the odds-on favorite, garnering 72 percent of the responses. Soda was next with 15.9 percent; pop, third at 7.4 percent. My brain got all twisted around again when we moved to Montana. Out there, it’s almost unanimously pop, followed by soda. Coke is a distant third in the Rockies, that’s for sure. The very detailed survey results also included some specific answers in the “other” category, and there

were some doozies. The most prominent in Missouri are “soda pop” and “sodie,” with “soft drink” a pretty distant third. Shifting gears ever so slightly. Of the various containers you can drink your soda from, the good, oldfashioned glass is probably the most prolific, if not the most popular. That is because glass takes a million years to decompose, so it can be recycled over and over again. Further research shows, however, that gold is the only metal that will not rust, even if buried in the ground for hundreds of years. Another only: your tongue. It is the only muscle that is attached at only one end. And another? How about this one? Zero is the only number that cannot be represented by Roman numerals. How about this? The letter J does not appear anywhere in the periodic table of elements. Or, did you know that your teeth are the only parts of the human body that cannot heal themselves? Well, you know it now, along with strawberries being the only fruit whose seeds grow on the outside. Did you know that the Moon moves about two inches farther away from the Earth every year? Or that Earth gets about 100 tons heavier every day because of falling space dust that settles on our surface? And now you should perhaps consider changing your shampoo. Why? Because smart people have more copper and zinc in their hair than others, and you have gotten much, much smarter, just in the time you have spent reading through this piece today. Because this is a rural area, and agriculture is very important to our local economy, this last item for consideration, with the potential for a new swine epidemic a consideration, is farm related. The Swine Flu vaccine created in 1976 caused more illnesses and deaths than the disease it was intended to prevent. I won’t get into who was President and who controlled Congress in 1976 ….

Farmers and ranchers carry Earth Day torch every day Today much of the United States finds a way to celebrate Earth Day, which began on this day in 1970. Since that day, the environmental movement has continued to grow and become a very part of how individuals, businesses, and even our governments make decisions But what we must remember is that farmers and ranchers were environmental stewards for centuries before that day. We could even say they were “environmentalists before the environment was cool.” I’m pretty sure that sometimes people not involved in agriculture assume that farmers are slow to pick up on technology and modern adjustments. I’m more than pretty sure those people are wrong. The way farmers and ranchers utilize technologies to produce more food with fewer resources is amazing. The continuing education in which they immerse themselves to better their operations is admirable. And the social media and advanced communication methods they utilize to share their stories with the rest of the world is inspiring. Today, one farmer feeds an average of 155 people, compared to 26 people in 1970. That’s a huge advancement, folks.

The list of ways that farmers care for the land is endless. Rotational grazing keeps forages from being overeaten. Fences around ponds preserve water and wildlife. No-till planting keeps soil from

Kaity Holtman Agriculture Editor eroding. Efficient machinery increases crop yields. Irrigation techniques use water efficiently during drought and in dry areas. Proper animal nutrition helps livestock grow healthier and more quickly

without using too much of any one resource. I just touched the tip of the iceberg. But the most important point to make here is that today’s farmers and ranchers are producing MORE food for a growing population using FEWER resources and LESS land than they had in 1970. But the WHY is my favorite part of this story. Farmers and ranchers take very special care of the land every day – not just on Earth Day – because it’s their livelihood. They know that if they want to pass their land on down to their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and beyond, they must take the best care of it they can. It’s common knowledge that we must care for anything that we want to see thrive for many years, and the land and environment is no exception. Plus, those future generations looking to farm will have to do so with ever-dwindling resources, but for evergrowing national and world populations. It’s admirable the hard work and dedication that farmers provide to their renewable resource to keep it thriving, so that they can continue to produce food for the world, now and for generations to come.

Profitible cuts of beef

University’s meat study looks at how value cuts affect ground chuck By JASON VANCE MU Extension

Removing value-added cuts of beef from the chuck increases profits for producers while offering consumers lower-cost, highquality steaks. The meat that is left over is usually sold as ground chuck. Does removing those value cuts affect the quality of the ground beef? Claire Ohman, a meat science graduate research assistant at the University of Missouri, looked at

the overall color and odor stability of ground chuck when value cuts like the flat iron and Denver cut were removed. “We processed 24 beef steers over five months, isolating the left and right chucks,” Ohman said. Value cuts were removed from each animal’s left chuck while the right chucks were processed in a traditional style. The two blends of ground chuck were made into patties and then analyzed for color stability

and odor. “When consumers go to the retail case to purchase meat, the biggest factor in their decision is the color of the meat,” said Carol Lorenzen, professor of meat science in MU’s College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. “So this project looked at not only changes in overall color but also changes in the percent of discoloration over a sevenday storage period.” They found no differences in the color or odor pro-

files of ground chuck with and without the value cuts. “This shows that we are maintaining quality ground chuck while improving consumer choice,” Ohman said. “Consumers are able to purchase these new cuts at a lower price per pound than many of the steaks and roasts that have historically been on the market.” Funding for this research was provided by the beef checkoff program through the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.

Entertainment ‘Capt. America’ tops box office for third consecutive week By Sandy Cohen AP Entertainment Writer


Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Dianna Agron and John D’Leo in The Family (2013)

‘The Family’ doesn’t fit into the typical Mob family mold. The Family By Gary Darling Staff Writer

Now I am not the biggest organized crime-based film fan. I find them intriguing sometimes, boring the next. Honestly, I am not the biggest fan of the No. 1 film of the genre either in ‘The Godfather.’ So why am I watching this film, ‘The Family,’ anyway? Well, the offerings at the local theater weren’t that intriguing and I had limited options over Easter weekend. So, ‘The Family’ was the only movie that looked remotely interesting. Plus, it has Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro in the cast, so it had that going for it. So how bad could it be, right?

Well, it wasn’t the worst movie I have ever seen, truly. I had many doubts that I would find anything at all gratifying from the film. But I did. There were little glimmers of hope that were squashed once the ending was upon us. And the student teacher/student relationship issues made parts of the film seem icky. Anyway, was this film worth my time? I would say it was. Would I pay to see it again? Nope. Giovanni Manzoni (Robert De Niro) and his family are in the witness protection program after he snitched on his boss, Don Luchese (Stan Carp). After being relocated, yet again, the family struggles to blend into the neighborhood in Normandy, France. The family can’t help but find

trouble everywhere it goes. All the while, this family is under constant observation by the FBI team lead by agent Robert Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones). Things seem to be going according to plan until Giovanni’s son, Warren (John D’Leo), quotes Luchese in his school’s newspaper that somehow makes its way back to Luchese through a chain of events. Now, with the location exposed, the family must come together to survive. The biggest flaw with this film is the ending. It was so predictable that it was almost maddening. It was like the director went to a “Mob film” store and bought cliché after cliché used in every previous Mob family film. There are some pretty funny moments in ‘The Family’. Unfortunately the ending ruins it but it is still worth a view.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Captain America continues to vanquish box office foes, triumphing in ticket sales for the third consecutive week and dominating over megastar Johnny Depp’s new movie. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” added another $26 million to its coffers, according to studio estimates Sunday, while Depp’s sci-fi thriller, “Transcendence,” opened in fourth place with $11 million. Directed by longtime Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister, the Warner Bros. film is Depp’s third consecutive box office disappointment. He played Tonto in last summer’s “The Lone Ranger” — one of the biggest flops of 2013 — and starred in 2012’s comedy-horror dud, “Dark Shadows.” “As we approach the summer movie season, box-office drawing power becomes more about the concept of the movie rather than its star,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. “It may not have been so much (about) Johnny Depp, but audiences right now like brands that they know.” That doesn’t bode well for original ideas, such as “Transcendence,” penned by first-time screenwriter Jack Paglen. Dergarabedian notes that 12 sequels are expected this summer alone. Another new movie, the religious-themed “Heaven Is for Real,” debuted in third place over Easter weekend, while another sequel, “Rio 2,” held on to the second spot. Faith-based films are performing well, Dergarabedian said, with four releases in the domestic top 20. “The Winter Soldier” set a box-office record as the biggest April release ever when it opened with more than $96 million domestically. Starring Chris Evans as comic book hero Capt. America and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, the Disney release has earned more than $200 million to date in North America — the 12th Marvel film to do so. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released on Monday: 1. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” $26.6 million ($35.3 million international). 2. “Rio 2,” $22.5 million ($48 million international). 3. “Heaven is for Real,” $21.5 million. 4. “Transcendence,” $11.2 million ($17.4 million international). 5. “A Haunted House 2,” $9.1 million. 6. “Draft Day,” $5.9 million. 7. “Divergent,” $5.75 million ($18.1 million international). 8. “Oculus,” $5.2 million. 9. “Noah,” $5 million ($21.6 million international). 10. “God’s Not Dead,” $4.8 million.

Prizefighter Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter dies at 76 By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

Rubin “Hurricane” Carter never surrendered hope of regaining his freedom, not even after he was convicted of a triple murder, then convicted again and abandoned by many prominent supporters. For 19 long years, the prizefighter was locked in a prison cell far away from the spotlight and the adulation of the boxing ring. But when he at last won his biggest fight — for exoneration — he betrayed little bitterness. Instead, Carter dedicated much of his remaining life to helping other prisoners and exposing other injustices. The middleweight title contender, whose murder convictions became an international symbol of racial injustice and inspired a Bob Dylan song and a Hollywood film, died Sunday. He was 76. The New Jersey native, who had suffered from prostate cancer, died in his sleep at his home in Toronto, said John Artis, his former co-defendant and longtime friend and caregiver. Carter “didn’t have any bitterness or anger — he kind of got above it all. That was his great strength,” said Thom Kidrin, who became friends with Carter after visiting him several times in prison. The boxer, a former petty criminal, became an undersized 160-pound contender and earned his nickname largely on his ferocity and punching power. Although never a world champion, Carter went 27-12-1 with 19 knockouts, memorably stopping two-division champ Emile Griffith in the first round in 1963. He also fought for a middleweight title in 1964, losing a unanimous decision to Joey Giardello. But his boxing career came to an abrupt end when he was imprisoned for three 1966 murders committed at a tavern in Paterson, N.J.

He was convicted in 1967 and again in 1976 before being freed in 1985, when his convictions were thrown out after years of appeals. He then became a prominent public advocate for the wrongfully convicted from his new home in Canada. His ordeal and its racial overtones were publicized in Dylan’s 1975 song “Hurricane,” several books and a 1999 film starring Denzel Washington, who received an Academy Award nomination for his portrayal. In a statement issued Sunday, Washington praised Carter’s “tireless fight to ensure justice for all.” Carter and Artis had been driving around Carter’s hometown on the night that three white people were shot by two black men at the Lafayette Bar and Grill. They were convicted by an all-white jury largely on the testimony of two thieves who later recanted their stories. Carter was granted a new trial and briefly freed in 1976, but he was sent back for nine more years after being convicted in a second trial. “I wouldn’t give up,” Carter said in an interview in 2011 on PBS. “No matter that they sentenced me to three life terms in prison. I wouldn’t give up. Just because a jury of 12 misinformed people ... found me guilty did not make me guilty. And because I was not guilty, I refused to act like a guilty person.” Dylan, a boxing aficionado, became aware of Carter’s plight after reading the fighter’s autobiography. He met Carter and cowrote “Hurricane,” which he performed on his Rolling Thunder Revue tour in 1975. The song concludes: “That’s the story of the Hurricane/But it won’t be over till they clear his name/And give him back the time he’s done/Put him in a prison cell but one time he could-a been/The champion of the world.” Muhammad Ali and Coretta Scott King spoke out on Carter’s behalf. Other celebrities also worked toward his release, joined by a

network of friends and volunteers. Carter eventually won his freedom from U.S. District Judge H. Lee Sarokin, who wrote that the boxer’s prosecution had been “predicated upon an appeal to racism rather than reason, and concealment rather than disclosure.” Born on May 6, 1937, into a family of seven children, Carter struggled with a hereditary speech impediment and was sent to a juvenile reform center at 12 after an assault. He escaped and joined the Army in 1954 and learned to box while in West Germany. After returning home, he committed a series of muggings and spent four years in various state prisons. Upon his release, he began his pro boxing career, winning 20 of his first 24 fights mostly by knockout. At 5-foot-8, Carter was fairly short for a middleweight, but he was aggressive and threw waves of punches. His shaved head and menacing glower gave him an imposing ring presence but also contributed to a forbidding aura outside the ring. He was quoted as joking about killing police officers in a 1964 story in the Saturday Evening Post, which was later cited by Carter as a cause of his troubles with law enforcement. Carter boxed regularly on television at Madison Square Garden and overseas in London, Paris and Johannesburg. Although his career appeared to be on a downswing before he was implicated in the murders, the 29-year-old fighter was hoping for a second middleweight title shot. Carter defied his prison guards from the first day of his incarceration and spent time in solitary confinement because of it. “When I walked into prison, I refused to wear their stripes,” Carter said. “I refused to eat their food. I refused to work their jobs, and I would have refused to breathe the prison’s air if I could have done so.” Carter eventually wrote and spoke eloquently about his plight, publishing his

autobiography, “The Sixteenth Round,” in 1974. Benefit concerts were held for his legal defense featuring Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Roberta Flack. Although many of his celebrity friends abandoned the cause after his second conviction and an allegation of assault during his brief release, other advocates worked tirelessly on his behalf, culminating in Sarokin’s ruling and two subsequent failed prosecutorial appeals to have the convictions reinstated. Each year on the anniversary Sarokin’s decision, Carter called the judge to thank him. After his release, Carter moved to Toronto, where he served as the executive director of the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted from 1993 to 2005. He received two honorary doctorates for his work. Canadian director Norman Jewison made Carter’s story into a biographical film. Washington worked closely with Carter to capture the boxer’s transformation and redemption. “He’s all love,” Washington said while onstage with Carter at the 2000 ceremony where he won a Golden Globe. “He lost about 7,300 days of his life, and he’s love.” The makers of “The Hurricane,” however, were widely criticized for factual inaccuracies and glossing over other parts of Carter’s story, including his criminal past and a reputation for a violent temper. Giardello sued the film’s producers for its depiction of a racist fix in his victory over Carter, who had long acknowledged that Giardello deserved the win. Artis said Carter will be cremated and didn’t want a funeral or any memorial. Artis has been taking care of him since 2011. “He was a champion of the underdog,” he said. “He was like the David against the Goliath of the justice system.” Kidrin spoke with Carter on Wednesday. “He said, ‘You know, look, death’s coming. I’m ready for it. But it’s really going to have to take me because I’m positive to the end.’”

Rockets slip by Wolves By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

Right on it


West Nodaway senior Billy Knarr records one of his two hits during the Rockets’ 3-2 win over East Atchison Monday night in Burlington Junction.

West Nodaway used the right arm and bat of junior Trevor Meyer to down conference foe East Atchison County 3-2 Monday in Burlington Junction. The win avenged a loss the Rockets suffered at the hands of the Wolves in the West Nodaway Invitational tournament last week. The game was scoreless until the bottom of the third, when Meyer led off with a single. One out later, back-to-back singles by senior Billy Knarr and sophomore Blake Farnan loaded the bases. Sophomore Treston Sanders then worked a walk from East Atchison starter Brody Cooper to score Meyer and give the Rockets the 1-0 lead. The Wolves tallied a run in the top of the fourth to tie the contest at 1-1, and the game stayed deadlocked until the bottom of the sixth. Sophomore Josh McGinness was hit by a pitch to start the Rocket half of the sixth, then raced home on Meyer’s double to give the Rockets a 2-1 lead. Meyer then used his speed to score from second base on a sacrifice bunt by sophomore Damon Hull to give the Rockets a 3-1 lead. East Atchison took advantage of three West Nodaway errors in the seventh to

plate a run, but Meyer was able to work out of the jam in going the distance on the mound. “Trevor was getting tired in the seventh,” Rocket coach Bryce Buholt said. “But he’s a bulldog, and he didn’t want to come out.” In his complete game performance, Meyer allowed four hits and one earned run, while striking out eight and issuing only one walk. “I threw mostly fastballs because they hit my curve when I threw it,” Meyer said. “I really wanted to finish the game, and I’m glad I was able to.” Meyer was aided by solid Rocket defense for most of the contest, something that didn’t happen when the two squads met in the Rocket Invitational. “(Sophomore) Bryson Smith made some good plays at short, and Damon Hull was solid in center field,” Buholt said. “After we played so poorly on defense in the tournament, we needed to have short memories on defense and just go play, and we did.” Meyer and Farnan paced West Nodaway, now 3-3 on the season, with three hits each. The Rockets are back in action at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday when they host Maryville’s freshman squad.

Zanders’ TD run highlights Missouri’s spring game COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Signing autographs and taking pictures for a gaggle of fans around him, Marvin Zanders seemed right at home. “Just another day at the office,” the Missouri quarterback said. Zanders could be in Jacksonville, Fla., finishing his senior year in high school, but chose to enroll early with the Tigers so he could make plays such as his 80-yard touchdown run Saturday to cap the team’s annual Black and Gold Game. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound freshman scooted untouched through a seam in the middle of the offensive line and scored with 15 seconds left, right after sophomore Eric Laurent hauled in a 93-yard touchdown reception from freshman Trent Hosick. “When I got about 40 yards, I was tired, I was running, I was like, ‘I just have to finish,’” Laurent said, still out of breath. “It was the first time I had gotten into the end zone all spring. It was a great feeling.” While the reserves took advantage of their playing time in the closing minutes, the second-team offense only managed one first down against the first-team defense in the first half on a 33-yard pass from junior Corbin Berkstresser to senior Gavin Otte. Senior defensive end Markus Golden burst through the offensive line consistently and recorded a sack while junior Shane Ray had four tackles. The duo will be replacing All-American Michael Sam and Kony Ealy, who anchored a defensive line that helped

Missouri win the SEC East last fall. In addition to Zanders and Laurent, sophomore first-stringer Maty Mauk scored the only other touchdown on a three-yard keeper in the second quarter. The team named Mauk the most-improved quarterback for the spring after he completed 11-of-15 passes for 129 yards Saturday. Mauk said he’s been working on “just staying consistent and not letting other things get in the way. For instance, Dorial (Green-Beckham), things like that, we’ve just got to build off of it. Our guys really stepped up. We finished strong, that’s what we need.” Senior Bud Sasser caught two passes for 22 yards in place of Green-Beckham, who was dismissed from the team last week. Green-Beckham was let go after police in Columbia filed no charges in a suspected burglary involving the player because of reluctant witnesses fearing retaliation. “When players make really bad decisions and poor mistakes, they should be accountable and that shouldn’t happen,” head coach Gary Pinkel said. “It’s unfortunate that one or two made mistakes to kind of drag everybody else down, but I know the real picture here. We’ve got great kids; they do a good job.” More than 23,000 fans watched the game, which marked the last of 15 practices this spring for Missouri. The Tigers’ season opener is Aug. 30 against South Dakota State.

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — Despite battling early morning rain showers Monday morning at Fairview Golf Course in St. Joseph, the Maryville golf team finished third at the Midland Empire Conference Tournament.

Bulldogs fall to South Harrison, Heddinger takes 3rd BETHANY, Mo. — The Stanberry Golf team traveled to Bethany on Thursday night to take on South Harrison in a duel, of sorts. Both East Harrison and Worth County participated in the meet, but neither school had enough participants to field a full team. As a team, Stanberry placed second behind South Harrison 190-208. Individually, Stanberry junior Isaac Heddinger took third with a nine-hole 45. He tied two golfers from South Harrison,

who both shot 45s, but due to a card-off, he finished in third. This is the second time this season that Heddinger has missed out on first place due to a card-off. As for the rest of the team, Seth Noble shot a 50, Cole Craig shot a 55 and Preston Aye shot a 58. Stanberry traveled to Albany on Monday night, but results were not available by press time. On Tuesday night, the Bulldogs will head to Maysville for a 4 p.m. meet.

Julien Couronne named Tennis Athlete of the Week KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Northwest freshman Julien Couronne was named the MIAA Men’s Tennis Athlete of Week on Monday in a release from the league office. Couronne, from Lycee, France, was 4-0 on the week in doubles and singles. The Bearcats started the week with a road victory over Division I member UMKC on Wednesday in Kansas City. Couronne picked up a win at No. 5 singles over Uldis Gaismins, 6-3, 4-6, 6-0, and teamed with fellow freshman Romain Boissinot to win at No. 3 doubles, 8-3. On Friday, Couronne

beat Bethany College’s No. 5 singles player Amir Rahbar, 6-2, 6-1, and also won at No. 2 doubles with Boissinot, 8-3. The Bearcats host Graceland at 3 p.m. Tuesday at Frank Grube Courts.

BRIDGE The play that is easy to miss by Phillip Adler





ASTRO-GRAPH TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2014 by Bernice Bede Osol







Your knowledge and creative talent will make you an entertaining and attractive individual. Your sensitivity and intuition will be heightened, and your enhanced ability to express yourself will help you develop dynamic partnerships. Confidence will pave the way to your success. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -There is someone you can’t stop thinking about. Get in touch with this person, share your feelings and plan something special to satisfy your romantic mood. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Be ready for a moneymaking or professional opportunity to come your way. Network with your peers to encounter career options. You must handle joint ventures cautiously. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -You’ll face opposition if you voice your opinion. There is someone in your circle who may be able to offer some helpful advice. Listen to it, but ultimately make choices based on your needs. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Social media or a vocational seminar could offer valuable insight regarding future job prospects. Consider what interests you the most, do your research and make an informed decision. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Physical activity will be challenging but rewarding. You can improve your self-image and make new friends. Your confidence and popularity are on the rise. Enjoy close encounters.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Give someone you are questioning the benefit of the doubt. An honest mistake is not worth the cost of a solid friendship. Don’t let disappointment lead to bitterness or resentment. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Make a point to learn something new. Whether you comb the Internet, join a discussion group or do some research at your local library, there are plenty of interesting topics to discover. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although you may be inclined to spend some money on your own enjoyment, this is not a good time to lend cash or possessions to others. An interesting investment will increase your income. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t give in to pressure. Make your decisions based on facts. Take your time and wait until you are absolutely sure that you’re making the best choice. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You may be tempted to get involved in an unusual or questionable activity. Intrigue and adventure must not entice you to participate in a shady endeavor. Focus on structured activities. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- The attention you offer a younger person will be appreciated. If you are patient and understanding, your compassion and caring will help you form a closer bond and a new ally. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t let an emotional situation ruin your day or a relationship with someone special. Honesty and an emphasis on teamwork will help alleviate discord.

Flip Wilson, a comedian and actor who died in 1998, said, “Getwell cards have become so humorous that if you don’t get sick, you’re missing half the fun.” If you miss the right play at the bridge table, it is not fun and can make you feel uncomfortable. Let’s stay fit and healthy during today’s deal. South is in three no-trump. What should he do after West leads the diamond queen? Note North’s rebid. He could not support spades or hearts, or rebid diamonds, or bid no-trump. He solved the problem by resorting to three clubs, the artificial fourth-suit game-forcing. The most common reason for using fourth-suit-forcing is a desire to get to three no-trump, but the responder does not have a stopper in that fourth suit. Declarer has seven top tricks: one spade, two hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. The opening lead makes it impossible that the diamonds are breaking favorably. Instead, South must play to win three spade tricks. He cashes dummy’s ace (both defenders play low), then leads the spade five toward his hand. Assuming East plays low, what should declarer do? If the suit is splitting 3-3, everything will work. But what about a more likely 4-2 division? If West has king-queen-fourth, declarer is going down. If East has king-queen-fourth, putting up the jack (or 10) is the winning play. However, if West began with a doubleton, it is 8 to 6 that he has honor-doubleton, not lowdoubleton. So South should play low from his hand, which, of course, works here.

A Head Start on a big world


It’s been a busy spring for the youngsters enrolled in the Nodaway-Holt Head Start, who have spent the last couple of weeks learning about everything from smart nutrition to life in a prehistoric Missouri. Trips and activities, depicted in the pictures here, included a visit to Tracy Brown’s farm for a hands-on encounter with goats, chickens and baby calves and a presentation by Gina Ripley titled “My Plate” that featured information about basic food groups. The children also traveled to Groves Dairy, where they watched the milking operations and checked out exhibits at the Remington Nature Center in St. Joseph that depicted the era of the woolly mammoth and other now-extinct mammals.
