Early morning accident involves school bus, pickup By TONY BROWN News editor
A Jarnik Buses Inc. school bus carrying 37 students and adults from St. Gregory’s School on their way to the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium in Omaha, Neb., was involved in a two-vehicle collision at approximately 7:30 a.m. Monday at the intersection of East First and Depot streets. Maryville Public Safety Sgt. Wayne Wilson said there were no serious injuries in the mishap, which occurred as a pickup truck traveling southbound on Depot struck the eastbound bus on the driver’s side front panel. The 2000 Chevrolet Silverado pickup was driven by Carl D. Sherry, 55, of Conception Junction, who was cited for failure to yield. Traffic at the intersection is controlled by stop signs facing north and south on
Depot. East First Street traffic traveling east and west has the right-of-way. Wilson said the pickup sustained serious damage. Both vehicles were towed from the scene. Public Safety Director Keith Wood said the children aboard the bus were fifth- and sixth-graders accompanied by teachers and other adults assigned to supervise the field trip. Wood said Nodaway County ambulance crews responded to the wreck, and that paramedics examined more than 20 people at the scene for possible injuries. While several of those examined were shaken up, no one was transported to the hospital. The St. Gregory’s group was then loaded onto another bus and returned to the school, located at 333 S. Davis Street in Maryville. St. Gregory’s Princi-

‘A day of great thanksgiving for the safety of our children’
Maryville Public Safety Sgt. Wayne Wilson looks on as an employee from Kizer Collision Repair & Towing prepares to haul a school bus from the scene of a two-vehicle wreck that occurred Monday morning at the intersection of East Main and Depot streets. Thirty-seven children and adults from St. Gregory’s School were aboard the bus, headed for the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium in Omaha, when it was struck on the front driver’s side. pal Susan Martin issued a statement via email to the parents of children attending the parochial school describing Monday as “a day
of great thanksgiving for the safety of all of our children ... and especially our fifthand sixth-grade students and their teachers.”
The email stated that the wreck occurred as the loaded bus was leaving Maryville, and confirmed that there were no injuries.
Martin added that the originally-scheduled Omaha field trip had been tentatively rescheduled for May 19.
Massive pipe organ permeates basilica with sacred sounds By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer
Instrument of worship
KEVIN BIRDSELL/DAILY FORUM
The tallest pipes for the organ in the basilica at Conception Abbey stand more than 16 feet tall. Shown at the keyboard in the lower, right-hand corner of this photo is Brother Michael Marcotte, who, along with Father Timothy Schoen, serves as an organist during abbey worship services.
In 1999, the monks and priests at Conception Abbey in eastern Nodaway County completed a $9 million restoration of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, the sanctuary where the brothers meet for Mass and prayers. One of the highlights of the restoration was the organ, a worldclass instrument of the kind usually found in large cities and famous cathedrals. “It was the very first contract that was signed when we were working on the renewal of the church back in 1991,” said Brother Michael Marcotte, who serves the abbey’s organist. “It kind of went in fits and starts, depending on the fundraising. At certain points they slowed their activity on this because they didn’t want to finish it before the church was done because they wanted to be able to know what the acoustics would sound like.” Construction of the organ was completed in 1995, but the instrument wasn’t installed until four years later. “This one was built in 1995 and installed in 1999,” Father Timothy Schoen said. “We were renovating the entire building at the time, and that took longer than we thought. It turns out the organ was ready before the church was.” The monks decided to go with a mechanical action organ, which uses a mechanical rather than an electric linkage for the keys and pedals that allows air to move through the corresponding pipes. “We discovered and felt that mechanical action organs are of a higher quality than other organs,” Schoen said. “We discovered we had to replace the organ because of

the plans of the renovation of the church building. Given that freedom, we went in this direction. It has been a joy and a pleasure to have it.” More than 32 feet tall and 18 feet wide, the organ contains 39 ranks of pipes, which contain 2,009 individual pipes. Some of the pipes are made of metal and others are metal. “It affects the quality of the sound you get, the warmth of the sound you get,” Marcotte said. The tallest of the pipes stands more than 16 feet, the shortest only a few inches. In order to produce very deep tones, two 16-foot pipes at the rear of the instrument have a connector that allows air to pass through twice. This produces the same sound that would be made by a single 32-foot pipe. “It is an amazing instrument,” Marcotte said. “In terms of organs, it’s a medium sized instrument. … but there’s no question that it fills this space. It’s the right size for us.” Once the organ was installed, getting the correct acoustics for the basilica became the first priority. “The old church had a wood floor, plain wood, unfinished,” Marcotte said. “We knew that changing to brick would be quite a different sound. The acoustics were much more alive when the church was first finished.” “The acoustic in the building is marvelous,” Schoen said. “To have the two work together is quite an experience. … It was dramatically different right after the renovation, and we discovered we had to temper it a little bit. We had to put some absorbent panels around here and there to temper the sound.” When the organ was first installed, the sound had a seven second reverberation time, which was See ORGAN Page 3

Brother Michael Marcotte of Conception Abbey plays the organ in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. The organ was installed as the abbey was renovated in the 1990s.
Organ fills basilica with sound Continued from Page 1 too long. “It’s less now,” Marcotte said. It’s about fiveand-a-half now. It’s hard to get a balance between what’s good for singing, what’s good for the organ, and what’s good for public speaking since all are important. We’ve worked hard to try to hit a happy medium between them. “Music is such an important part of our liturgy, and we wanted this instrument to be able to perform the literature and to accompany the choir. That’s the way it was designed.” A small company in American Fork, Utah, built the abbey organ. M.L. Bigelow & Co. used a team of about six people to craft all the wood for the instrument. The metal pipes were imported from Holland. The organ consists of three levels of stops. Stops are the mechanisms that al-
low air to escape from the pipes and produce sound. “The stops at the bottom level speak right out to the monastic choir where the monks are chanting for their daily prayers,” Marcotte said. “There are two more levels up above. There’s a division right behind the front pipes called the façade pipes. Then, way up above, there’s another division. You can think of the levels as soft, loud and loudest.” The keyboard has three levels for the hands plus a single row of pedals. “The bottom keyboard is called the choir and that controls (the bottom level of pipes),” Marcotte said. “Most of those stops are softer in character. … (The top level) is called the swell, and it controls the middle. Those are mostly solo stops. (The middle) is called the great manual. These are all of the loud-
est stops. We would only use those for bigger occasions.” The foot pedals sound lower notes that correspond with the tallest pipes at the rear of the instrument. In addition, the keyboard console contains pullout switches, also called called stops. “The stops control motors that control a bar that moves back and forth beneath the pipes,” Marcotte said. “When the holes are lined up with the pipes, the air can come up through the pipes and they can sound. When they are offset, it doesn’t sound. When you pull (the stop) it moves the slider so that the holes are aligned with the pipes and all those pipes are free to speak.” Some stops are duplicated, depending on which level of pipes they correspond with, which is why there are more stops on the
organ than there are sets of pipes. Stops can be used in conjunction with one another to present a fuller sound. The organ can play a wide range of octaves using only a few keys if multiple stops are pulled. “It’s kind of like different members of the orchestra,” Marcotte said. “It’s like one person is suddenly multiplying himself.” The organ’s sounds range from the common tone known as the principle to flute sounds, trumpet sounds and low woodwinds, Marcotte said. Both Marcotte and Schoen play the organ during services, and both said it was an honor to make music on such a grand instrument. “There’s a joy and pleasure to give accompanimental support to the community as a worship experience,” Schoen said.

STATE NEWS Legislative session enters final four days
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are down to the final four days of their regular session. As usual, there are a variety of issues pending as legislators face a mandatory adjournment of 6 p.m. Friday. House and Senate negotiators are still hammering out the details on bills dealing with guns and schools. The Senate still is expected to consider anti-abortion legislation and voting measures. And the House has yet to take a final vote on a measure placing a transportation sales tax on this year’s ballot. But lawmakers already have wrapped up work on two high-profile issues. They enacted an income tax cut last week by overriding Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto. They also have given final approval to the first comprehensive revision of the state’s criminal laws since the 1970s.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers plan to debate a proposed constitutional amendment allowing the state to enact a voter photo identification requirement. The legislation cleared the House earlier this year, but is stalled in the Senate as the annual session enters its final week. If passed by the Legislature, the amendment would head to the November ballot. Passage of the amendment would not institute the identification requirement, but would allow lawmakers to enact one in the future. Supporters need to amend the Constitution first because a previous photo ID requirement was struck down as unconstitutional. Democrats oppose the measure and say it would prevent currently eligible voters from casting ballots if they cannot obtain a government-issued ID. Republican supporters say the bill would protect against fraud.
Solar firms seek rebates
MAPLEWOOD, Mo. (AP) — Missouri’s solar energy industry is rallying to resurrect a popular rebate program created by a 2008 renewable-energy ballot initiative that was curtailed when the state’s largest utility said it had to cease participation to avoid rate increases capped by the voterapproved law. The Missouri Solar Energy Industries Association says its members will have to lay off thousands of workers if state lawmakers or the Missouri Public Service Commission don’t make further fixes to an incentive program that provided customers who installed solar rooftop panels up to $50,000 in rebates. With one week remaining in the state’s annual legislative session, solar company owners held a Monday morning news conference at Schlafly Bottleworks. The Maplewood brewery installed a solar roof several years ago.

LEGENDS OF THE FALL
“It’s time to fish or cut bait.” “Shut up and tee it up.” Whatever passion attracts visitors to the area, the recreational opportunities at Maryville’s Mozingo Lake Recreation Park are varied and voluminous. Those opportunities have attracted visitors for the better part of 20 years now, and that attraction doesn’t seem to be tapering off to any degree. If anything, it is increasing. In its effort to stay abreast of the times and the demands, both recreational and otherwise, of these times, the Maryville City Council, the park’s advisory board, and the staff at the 3,000-plus acre facility are going all-out to make the Mozingo Experience as exciting as possible to all comers. To that end, and on the general advice of at least one developmental advisor on park amenities, the city has retained RDG Planning & Design, a respected planning firm with favorable prior experience in Maryville, to begin developing a comprehensive plan for Mozingo Lake Recreation Park, much as it did for the city. As an initial part of its planning process, the firm has conducted a series of interviews with city and park officials to get a feel for the project. Last week, it conducted a public listening session to try out its first takes on how the plan — and eventually the park — should look in the future. Not surprisingly, one of the key discussion points became the construction of a lodge, and where it should be located when — not if — constructed. The ultimate vision for The Lodge at Mozingo would encompass probably 50 to 70 rooms, with adequate space and services for small-scale conventions, conferences and/or organizational retreats. Seemingly, the desired location would be in close proximity to the championship golf course that already exists, and that will soon be complimented by a Tom Watson-designed junior/executive course. It could encompass the course clubhouse, or not, depending upon the ultimate cooperative vision of the developer and the city. It needs to be first-class, just like the golf course(s), the fishing, and the other outdoor and water-based activity opportunities that already exist. Such a conference center could also fuel additional opportunity for curriculum enhancements at Northwest, based on potential internships in facility as well as park management, hospitality management, culinary arts, for starters. If we are looking ahead at a comprehensive plan for our park — which we are — let’s not allow ourselves to be limited in any way. John Morris started Bass Pro Shops selling fishing tackle in the back of his daddy’s liquor store. He has branched out into a place called Big Cedar Lodge. Maryville built Mozingo Lake because it needed a dependable source of water. Now, why not let’s see just what all we can do with it. Anybody got Mr. Morris’ number? If not, maybe RDG will help us find it.
I am very fortunate, in more ways than one, to live close enough to one of our daughters that we can get to one another in just more than an hour, if need be. Our other daughter lives in Fort Worth, but her in-laws also live in the Kansas City area, so she makes visits to Missouri on a fairly regular basis. Of course, I always welcome them with open arms when either, or both, pull into the driveway at 5B for a couple of hours, or a couple of days. This past weekend was something special, in more ways than one. The Fort Worth daughter’s family came up to Kansas City for our grandson’s graduation from Bishop Miege High School on Saturday. My Texas daughter, Sarah, however, flew into Kansas City Wednesday afternoon so she could come up to visit for a couple of days before the big events got underway. We had a great time. Cooked steaks and home-grown asparagus on the grill after she got settled in, and checked to be certain that what was left of my then-current supply of Whoop Whoop was still drinkable. It was. And then the fun began. Unbeknownst to me, Sarah had accepted an assignment from Susie, the graduation mom in Prairie Village, to help in the food-preparation process for Grandson Conrad’s graduation party on Friday night before his big day on Saturday. Flashback to the old television stories: “Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to prepare an ungodly number of Oreo cookie bon bons.” Yeh, Sarah, sure. I know what an Oreo cookie is. But a bon bon? That has always been someone else’s department. I usually just enjoy dessert-type treats, I don’t build ’em. At least I didn’t until last weekend. “How many do we need to make,” I asked, somewhat casually. Sorta like the watermelon fiasco I had gotten into a couple of years back with Susie. We cut what seemed like a semi-truck-load of small, seedless

When your daughters visit, they are more than ‘visitors’ watermelons into bite-sized cubes, all by hand. Well, by the time this was over, we had manufactured a good-sized cooler-full of crushed cookies dipped in boiling hot white chocolate, all by hand again. Sarah assured me we could crumble the cookies “in your food pro-
cessor ….” It was at that point she realized that older, live-alone guys who eat most of their meals out of the home probably don’t own a food processor. In my particular case, make that “certainly.” So, I did what any self-respecting father would do. I borrowed one. And it just happened to be about the third, or maybe fourth, one ever produced (the actual serial number was worn away). Pulverizing the Oreos in the food processor would have been a rather simple task in itself. Adding seemingly endless amounts of (I think it was ) creamed cheese really complicated the process. Think about it the next time you need a timeless adhesive. And we learned from experience there was no preferred sequences for preparing or assimilating the ingredients — Oreos, crushed or whole, on top of cheese, or cheese on top of cookies, in either state. It was all the same. It should be noted that ingesting controlled amounts of wine didn’t
help the situation either. But we persevered. On to rolling — by hand, of course — carefully measured amounts of the resulting goo into rather uniform spheres to be placed on waxed paper (we discovered rather early on that worked better than directly onto a cookie sheet) and placing them in the refrigerator. Just as another aside — that took a bit of doing also. My ice box’s interior was not exactly situated to accommodate that many cookie sheets. Thank goodness, packages containing from three to six bottles of different beers are all basically the same height. But I digress. After those little puppies were all nice and chilled, it was time to add the perfect coating of almond bark — which looked for the world like white chocolate to me, but try to find “white chocolate” at Hy-Vee late at night. Melted to perfection in a saucepan that I would have bet $100 would never be in any condition to be used again, it was time to begin the dipping. Tooth picks? Not long enough. A fork? Too many holes. My fingers? Too damn hot. And on and on until it was decided a spoon, preferably an iced tea spoon with a longer handle, was the ticket. When our assignment was finally complete, and my kitchen back in some semblance of order, I was relieved. We were in pre-apology mode on our way to Kansas City as we alerted Susie the appearance of our finished product might not be exactly what she expected. We had, however, brought along the unused almond bark, by then quite solidified in the pan, just in case. No need. They were deemed acceptable, visually, and if the rate of consumption was any indication at all — from a taste standpoint — they were just fine, thank you very much. And, in the process of all of that, I think I passed an unofficial test of being able to continue to live on my own for a while longer.

Resource inventory documents trends in Missouri’s land use JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – With 28 years of consistently collected land-use data at its fingertips, the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has a clear picture of how Missourians utilize the 44.6 million acres within their state’s borders, and how their decisions impact natural resources. After Congress directed USDA to track land-use and erosion trends, NRCS developed the National Resources Inventory (NRI), which was expanded to its current size in 1982. Terry Barney, Missouri’s resources inventory coordinator, says 8,700 tracts of land, averaging 160 acres, are inventoried every five years, using an annual rotation of 1,800 tracts. In addition to land use, the NRI tracks erosion rates for both cropland and pastureland acres. “Unlike many other inventories, NRI tracks the same sample points year after year. This lets us not only determine current land use but also how land use is changing over time across the state and the nation,” Barney said. “Change includes knowing where all the acreage gains and losses for a particular land-use category came from and went to over the last 28 years.” In terms of land use, Bar-
ney said the large “cropland” category has seen little change in total acres over the years. It has remained steady at about 14.8 million acres. However, there have been shifts within that category. For example, after USDA unveiled its Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) in 1985, cultivated cropland acres declined while grassland acres increased. That’s because CRP pays farmers to convert highly erodible land from crop production to permanent vegetation. CRP and other conservation programs and policies included in the 1985 Farm Bill and subsequent farm bills, have had a dramatic effect on soil erosion. Because of those programs and passage of a one-tenth-cent sales tax in Missouri to fund state parks and to help farmers afford soil conservation activities, the state’s soil erosion rate decreased more than any other state over a 25-year period. Missouri’s sheet and rill erosion rate on cultivated cropland declined 51 percent -- from 10.8 tons per acre in 1982 to 5.2 tons per acre in 2007. The past few years have provided an indication of how quickly trends can change, however. For example, with high grain prices coinciding with the expiration of many CRP contracts,
some farmers chose to put their CRP ground back into crops instead of renewing their CRP contracts. Barney says cultivated cropland acreage increased by 126,000 acres between 2007 and 2010, and 108,000 of those acres (65 percent) came from land that had been enrolled in CRP. During that same time period, Missouri’s soil erosion rate increased from 5.2 tons per acre per year to 5.5 tons per acre per year. That represents the first increase in the state’s soil erosion rate after more than 25 years of steady decline. “CRP acres decreased, and the number of cultivated cropland acres and the soil erosion rate increased. That’s probably not a coincidence,” Barney said. Missouri is one of 13 states that have maintained a cropland base of more than 10 million acres over the past 28 years, according to Barney. With the state’s diverse topography and erosive soils, that has presented a natural resources dilemma. “We’ve been maintaining a large cropland base on very erosive soils for many decades,” he said. Missouri State Conservationist J.R. Flores said working with Missouri farmers to keep soil erosion at a low enough level to maintain
long-term productivity is a massive effort that requires teamwork and the sharing of resources at the local, state and federal levels. “The conservation partnership in Missouri is the envy of many other states,” Flores said. “This successful effort starts with the residents of the state, who on multiple occasions have voted to tax themselves to help farmers preserve our natural resources. And, of course, most important to this effort are the farmers who embrace their roles in being good land caretakers.” Flores said more highly erosive land being put back into crop production is a concern. But, he said, he is encouraged by the interests of many farmers in including cover crops in their crop rotations and farming in other ways that improve the soil’s health. Healthy soils absorb more rainfall, so there is less runoff to carry soil away from fields. Flores added that collecting and analyzing NRI data is time-consuming, but it is important because the USDA uses the data extensively in developing and providing conservation programs. More information about NRI and other NRCS programs is available on the Missouri NRCS website: www.mo.nrcs.usda.gov.
Plant soybeans in early May for best yields By LINDA GEIST MU Extension
Missouri soybean producers can increase yields by planting the first part of May, said University of Missouri Extension soybean specialist Bill Wiebold. The May 5 USDA Crop Progress Report shows only 4 percent of Missouri soybean planted, slightly below the five-year average of 6 percent. Typically, soybean producers wait until the second week of May to get beans planted, but Wiebold’s data suggests that soybean planted just one week earlier will net more yield and profits. Wiebold said data from the Corn Belt states of Illinois, Iowa and Indiana support this idea. He said yield is reduced by 3 percent when planting is delayed to May 15. Wiebold conducted 12 experiments over a 10-year period to analyze the impact of late planting dates on yield. Beans planted by mid-May yielded an average of 70 bushels per acre, with yields dropping to 65 bushels by June 1 and 60 by June 15, he said. Beans planted by July 15 dropped to less than half the yield of those planted in mid-May. Soybean planted in late April to early May have a
better chance of developing vegetative growth to let the plant collect more sunlight and save more available water than those planted later, Wiebold said. This increases the plant’s ability to set more flowers and pods, resulting in more seeds and yield. Later-planted soybean crops are subjected to more extreme environmental stresses. As with any crop, a combination of calendar date and environmental conditions should be considered. Wiebold touts soybean’s amazing resilience. Soybean continued to produce record yields in 2013 despite long periods of drought. Soybean crops yield well over a wide range of planting dates. Timing and amount of rainfall contribute largely to yield. The Missouri Soybean Association shows the winner of its 2013 contest as 115 bushels per acre on irrigated ground in Newton County. The top yield on conventional and no-till ground topped 91 bushels per acre in Cape Girardeau County. Missouri producers devoted 4 percent more cropland to soybean production in 2013 than in previous years, and Missouri is the eighth-ranking state in soybean production in the U.S.

Sam wins Arthur Ashe Award By BARRY WILNER
AP Pro Football Writer
NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Sam has been selected the winner of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. The former Missouri defensive end, who was drafted in the seventh round of the NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams, will receive the award at The 2014 ESPYs on July 16. Sam, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year, announced that he is gay, making him set to become the first openly gay player in the NFL. ESPN is honoring Sam for “his courage and honesty that resonates beyond sports.” “I’m very honored to be presented with the Arthur Ashe award,” he said. “It is about courage.
“You know, I don’t think there is anything courageous I did. I look forward to when we can live life in a world when gays don’t have to come out in public.” Sam joins a prestigious list of winners ranging from Jim Valvano, the first winner in 1995, to Muhammad Ali, Billie Jean King, Cathy Freeman, Nelson Mandela and Pat Summitt. The award, of course, is named for Ashe, the inspirational tennis star who died in 1993 after contracting AIDS from a blood transfusion. After learning he had the disease, Ashe campaigned to raise awareness about AIDS. “Arthur always believed in and practiced leading by example,” said Ashe’s widow, Jeanne Moutous-
samy-Ashe. “When Michael Sam announced that he is gay, he courageously stepped forward to engage an issue that still remains a pervasive problem in many professional sports. Michael has displayed true leadership both on and off the field.”

New ‘Spider-Man’ flick swings on heart strings to success Amazing Spider-Man 2 By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” hit theaters a few weekends ago and received mixed reviews from the public. Personally, I thought it was a great movie. It’s not a perfect movie, but it definitely tugs at the heart strings in a different way than other superhero flicks. The movie starts in the same general spot as the first “Amazing Spider-Man” movie, the point where Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) parents are dropping him off to live with his Aunt May (Sally Field), but this time it’s from the perspective of his parents. It’s an interesting take on that part of Peter’s life when we see what exactly happened to his parents and what they went through. When we pick up on Spider-Man, he’s doing his Spidey thing by flying around the city and saving people form Russian mobsters. Upon subduing said criminals, he makes it just in time to receive his diploma at his high school graduation. At the graduation, he meets up with his love, Gwen Stacy (Emma
Stone). The love between the two of them plays a large role in the movie after Peter promised her dying father (Denis Leary) in the first film that he wouldn’t be involved with her in order to protect her. The chemistry between Garfield and Stone is the real highlight of the movie. That could be because they’re together off-screen as well. The movie also introduces a new character to the bunch, Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx). Dillon starts off as an unsuspecting worker-bee type for Oscorp that Spider-Man saves and brushes off early in the movie. Due to an unfortunate accident, Dillon is given electric powers. He can manipulate and sense electricity in beings and items around him. At first he doesn’t want to hurt anyone. When he encounters SpiderMan, he mistakes Spider-Man’s attempts to help as Spidey trying to subdue and hurt him, which he doesn’t take kindly to. The development of Foxx’s character is another highlight of the film. He transforms from a fly on the wall character who gets saved by Spider-Man to a scene stealing villain. The movie also introduces Peter’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHann). After spending 11 years away from home in boarding school,
Harry returns home just as his father is passing away. As he passes, his father lets him in on a secret that is the driving force behind DeHann’s character throughout. DeHann does a wonderful job evolving the character of Harry Osborn from the spoiled billionaire kid to the villain he is destined to become. As a whole, the movie weighs itself down at times. The over saturation of new faces and new stories can make it a big hard to follow, but it does it’s best to keep the viewer interested. There are portions of this movie that draw out some serious emotion from me, which I wasn’t expecting. Whether it’s a heart-wrenching exchange between Peter and Aunt May or the valedictorian speech from Gwen, the movie really plays with your emotions. Hardcore comic nerds will get a jolly out of some of the Easter Eggs that this movie has. Whether it’s the name of Harry’s assistant or the nods to the notorious Sinister Six, the future of the “Amazing SpiderMan” movie franchise looks like it’s in good hands. Overall, while the movie was a bit hard to follow at times, the mix of action and emotion develop this move into the best Spidey movie yet.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — The annual Arts Fund campaign needs your help. Allied Arts Council Executive Director Teresa Fankhauser announced today that the Council has received over $124,813, which is short of this year’s $198,450 goal. The seven nonprofit organizations receiving Arts Fund monies go through a stringent allocation process that measures the effectiveness of the agencies’ programs and fiscal accountability. “It’s not too late to support the arts in our community. Every dollar the Arts Fund receives adds to the quality of arts programming for our community,” Fankhauser said. “The economic impact of the arts in our community is tremendous — not to mention the cultural impact which may be immeasurable. Many non-profit organizations would not exist or be as capable to support their mission without the support of campaigns such as the Arts Fund. The arts are what make us human — the creativity, beauty, precision and emotion of quality art can define quality of life to some people, myself included,” Arts Fund chair David Cripe said. The arts are also a $10.9 million industry in St. Joseph, which not only attracts audiences from all over, but also spurs business development, supports over 480 full time jobs, and helps generate over $889,000 in government revenue. All of the agencies rely on the Arts Fund money for roughly 25 percent of the dollars necessary to provide top quality arts programming for our community. The money donated to the Arts Fund is essential to the arts in our community. The organizations don’t just put on a show, or create a piece of art, they are providing essential business opportunities for our community. “The Arts Fund helps RiverSong purchase music, provides educational and professional development for members and assists in our ability to produce performances,” RiverSong member Donna Turk said. Because the Allied Arts Council understands the importance of a vibrant arts community, it has conducted an annual Arts Fund campaign since 1982. This year’s funded non-profit agencies include Creative Arts Productions, Midwest Artist Association, Performing Arts Association, RiverSong, St. Joseph Community Chorus, Saint Joseph Symphony and the Allied Arts Council. To contribute to the Arts Fund or for additional information, please visit www.stjoearts.org, call the Allied Arts Council office at 816-233-0231, or visit the office at 118 S.

‘Neighbors’ unseats Spidey to top box office

By Sandy Cohen AP Entertainment Writer
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Seth Rogen and Zac Efron have bested the web-slinger at the box office. Rogen and Efron’s family-versus-fraternity comedy “Neighbors,” was the top draw for moviegoers this weekend, unseating “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
The R-rated “Neighbors” debuted with $51 million in ticket sales, pushing Spidey to second place with $37 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Sustaining a No. 1 ranking is generally tougher in the summer than any other time of year,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. “You don’t expect a comedy to be able to unseat an epic blockbuster, but
historically it happens more than you think.” R-rated comedies have traditionally found success in the summer movie season: Think “Bridesmaids,” “The Hangover,” 2012’s “Ted” and last year’s “The Heat.” “Neighbors” stars Rogen and Rose Byrne as new parents finding their footing in the suburbs when a fraternity led by Efron moves in next door. Filled with goofball and gross-out gags balanced with a dash of heart, the comedy boasts some epic party scenes and ample shirtless Efron. The Universal release earned a “fresh” rating from review aggregator RottenTomatoes. com, with 74 percent of film critics responding favorably to the film. Conversely, Sony’s “Amazing Spider-Man 2” earned a “rotten” rating of 54 percent. Spidey is still a major success, with more than $550 million in worldwide ticket sales so far. “Spider-Man has nothing to worry about,” Dergarabedian said. Another comedy, the Cameron DiazLeslie Mann revenge romp “The Other Woman” held onto third place in its third week of release, adding $9 million to its take. “Heaven Is for Real” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” round out the top five. -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. “Neighbors,” $51 million ($34.4 million international). 2. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” $37.2 million ($69.5 million international). 3. “The Other Woman,” $9.25 million ($13.1 million international). 4. “Heaven Is for Real,” $7 million. 5. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” $5.6 million ($3.5 million international). 6. “Rio 2,” $5.1 million ($14.1 million international). 7. “Moms’ Night Out,” $4.2 million. 8. “Legends of Oz,” $3.7 million. 9. “Divergent,” $1.7 million ($3 million international). 10. “Brick Mansions,” 1.3 million. --Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at international theaters (excluding the U.S. and Canada), according to Rentrak: 1. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” $69.5 million. 2. “Neighbors,” $34.4 million. 3. “Rio 2,” $14.1 million. 4. “The Other Woman,” $13.1 million. 5. “Qu’est ce qu’on a fait au Bon Dieu?!” $10 million. 6. “Frozen,” $7.1 million. 7. “My Old Classmate,” $6 million. 8. “The Great Hypnotist,” $5.2 million. 9. “The Fatal Encounter,” $5 million. 10. “The Target,” $4.7 million.

Prudent money management can lead to prosperity for you in the year ahead. Rather than trying to sway others to your way of thinking, focus on doing your own thing. By budgeting carefully and channeling all your energies in one direction, you can reach your goals. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your many talents will be on display today. While some may appreciate your creativity, others may be jealous of it. Refuse to let criticism ruin your concentration. Do what’s best for you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It’s time to turn up the heat when it comes to love and romance. Set aside some time for intimacy. Plan a special getaway, even if it’s close to home. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Unexpected visitors may cause friction on the home front. Try to be as accommodating as possible, but don’t let anyone take advantage of you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There are some negative rumors circulating. Don’t get drawn into gossip, or you will look bad in front of your peers. Concentrate on your own actions, not others’ words. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Do whatever it takes to enhance your career. Showcase your experience and skills to prospective employers. Your strong work ethic and dependability will increase your earning potential. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Nothing can hold you back once you get some momentum going. Others are beginning to show increased interest in your abilities. Overcoming obstacles will become easier as you move forward. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Don’t repeat what you hear. Reserve your judgment until you have uncovered the truth for yourself. You can’t form your opinions based on unreliable information or assumptions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Many people are on your side and are willing to help you, but you must do the work yourself if you want to feel the satisfaction of finishing what you start. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Ignore those who aren’t directly involved in a certain situation. Keep the facts to yourself, face the issues and resolve them to the best of your ability. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Listening and observing attentively will provide you with excellent information. Don’t air grievances to anyone with the ability to alter your goals. Figuring things out on your own will show leadership ability. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Don’t offer a donation to anyone trying to guilt you into making a contribution. Choose your battles and your charities based on what you know to be worthwhile. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You may be on the receiving end of criticism from a partner, friend or peer. Show some restraint, and avoid getting into a pointless and exhausting tug-of-war.
John Buchan, a Scottish politician and novelist, whose most famous book was “The Thirty-Nine Steps,” said, “Every man at the bottom of his heart believes that he is a born detective.” It helps if a bridge player is a detective, uncovering clues from the bidding and play. But another word in that sentence is important in today’s deal. South is in three no-trump. West leads the spade queen. Given that the defenders can take only four tricks in spades, how should declarer plan to win the last nine? South starts with six top tricks: four hearts, one diamond and one club. He needs to deduce that if the club finesse is losing, the contract is hopeless. But if that finesse is winning, he can rake in nine tricks: four hearts, one diamond and four clubs. So, on the fourth spade, declarer must discard his diamond queen. Yes, this risks going several down if the club finesse fails, but pitching a club instead would leave South needing both minorsuit finesses to work. Then, after taking the fifth trick with his diamond ace, how should declarer continue? He must realize that he might need to take the club finesse three times. But he has only one dummy entry, in hearts, and he must stay in the dummy while repeating the club finesse. This requires first leading the bottom card in dummy’s clubs that can hold the trick when East has the club king. South must lead first the club nine. When that holds, he runs the club jack. Then he plays a club to his queen and claims. If declarer first leads dummy’s club jack, East can defeat the contract. Work out how.
