State University participated in a transportation fair Friday afternoon featuring a variety of service and first-responder vehicles from local businesses and agencies. Farlow said the outing was
the culmination of a study unit on travel and transportation that the children have been working on for the past several days. Participants bringing ve-

Presiding Circuit Court Judge Roger Prokes on Monday issued a default judgment on behalf of Nodaway County, which is seeking to collect more than $350,000 in back personal property taxes from Carbolytic Materials Company, a bankrupt corporation that opened a factory in Maryville in 2009. The factory and its contents, designed to recover fuel oil, gas and the manufacturing agent carbon black from scrap automotive tires, were sold at auction April 30 for $3 million to Advanced Processes Inc. of Ambridge, Pa. Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice said Monday that county officials have been seeking to negotiate a settlement with Advantage Capital Partners of St. Louis, the finance company that foreclosed on the equipment and fixtures inside the plant on which the taxes are owed. Until a deal is reached, however, Nodaway is continuing efforts to collect payment from CMC’s original owners, a group of St. Louis investors led by Ray Riek, the former director of research for Monsanto Co.’s rubber chemicals division. CMC failed to respond to Rice’s request for a default judgment. Nor did company representatives or legal counsel representing the defunct firm appear in court. Rice said CMC’s failure to respond, and Prokes decision, means Nodaway County can now initiate collection efforts without having to go to trial. According to court documents, CMC owes the county $349,391 in back personal property taxes plus nearly $35,000 in attorneys’ fees. Penalties, fees and interest will likely add to that total. Rice said the attorneys’ fees, if collected, will be deposited in the Nodaway County general revenue fund and will not directly benefit either the prosecuting attorney’s office or Rice personally. The prosecutor said the judgment allows the county to proceed with engaging a collection agency, issuing garnishments and taking other steps to recover “whatever remains of this judgment after collecting what we can from the secured creditors of the private property that sold at auction last week.” It is doubtful if any of the tax debt can be collected from Riek or the other investors personally, since the obligation was incurred by the CMC corporation, meaning that non-corporate assets belonging to indiSee COUNTY Page 3
Economy, not vote, will determine tax cut Override not final By DAVID A. LIEB
The Associated Press
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri legislators plan to vote this week on whether to override a veto by Gov. Jay Nixon and enact a law cutting state income taxes for individuals and many business owners. But their vote won’t be the last factor in determining whether the tax cuts actually occur. That ultimately
will depend on the economy — or, more specifically, on the amount of taxes paid to the state. The legislation would phase in the tax cuts starting in 2017, so long as state revenues grew by at least $150 million over their high mark from the previous three years. Each additional incremental tax cut would depend on that same formula. Had that criterion been in place during the past
decade, the tax cut would have occurred in half of the years. Had it been in place over roughly the past four decades, the tax cut would have been triggered in 20 years, but not in 16, according to an Associated Press analysis of historical state revenue figures. In short, history would suggest that the tax cut is no sure thing. That’s fine for Republican supporters of the legislation. In fact, they contend the uncertainty of the tax cut is one of its best-selling points. Because of the $150 mil-
lion revenue trigger, “there are tons of protections in there for core levels of budgets,” said Sen. Will Kraus, R-Lee’s Summit, who sponsored the legislation. “This bill is a realistic way to cut taxes without hurting current levels of funding.” Yet Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon calls the legislation “an ill-conceived, fiscally irresponsible experiment.” “There are no protections for public education in this bill,” Nixon said at a Capitol news conference when he vetoed the bill Thursday. He added: “These triggers

are losers.” Because of how the bill is written, Nixon says it’s possible that a tax cut could occur even in the midst of a recession. In fact, that would have been the case during the Great Recession of 2008 and 2009. Missouri revenues grew by $287 million during the fiscal year that ended in June 2008. That would have triggered a tax cut for the 2009 calendar year. But the full impact of that tax cut would not have been felt until those 2009 tax returns were due on April 15, 2010.

That means the tax cut would have occurred as state revenues were plummeting. In 2009, Missouri revenues fell $553 million. They dropped an additional $676 million in 2010, bottoming out at a little under $6.8 billion. “Had this bill been in effect, steep cuts to education and vital public services would have been unavoidable, as the tax cuts would have continued reducing revenue regardless of objective economic conditions,” Nixon wrote in a veto message to state lawmakers.

LOCAL NEWS Mother, child hurt in wreck A local woman and her 2-year-old daughter were injured in a one-vehicle accident Saturday morning in Atchison County near Tarkio, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Amy Wilson, 24, of Maryville was westbound on Highway 136 when her 2009 Nissan Versa went into a skid and ran off the right side of the roadway. The vehicle struck an embankment and overturned several times before coming to rest on it’s top. Wilson suffered serious injuries and was transported by ambulance to Fairfax Community Hospital. She was then transported by helicopter to Heartland Regional Medical Center in St. Joseph. Wilson’s daughter, Zoey Wilson, suffered moderate injuries and was taken to Fairfax Community Hospital and later released. Both occupants were properly secured in their seats, according to the patrol report. The vehicle was totaled and towed from the scene, the report stated. Patrol troopers N.J. Greiner and T.J. Black were assisted in working the accident by the Atchison County Sheriff’s Department, the Atchison-Holt Ambulance District and Tarkio first responders.
STATE NEWS Senate overrides income tax cut veto
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri’s Republican-led Senate voted Monday to override the veto of an income tax cut by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon, setting the stage for a final showdown in House. The Senate’s 23-8 party-line vote was just enough to meet the constitutional requirement of a two-thirds majority. But for the override to succeed in the House, Republicans will need the support of at least one Democrat. The legislation would gradually reduce Missouri’s top individual income tax rate from 6 percent to 5.5 percent and phase in a new 25 percent deduction for business income reported on personal tax returns. The incremental tax cuts would begin in 2017, but only if state revenues continue to grow. While vetoing the bill last week, Nixon denounced it as an “ill-conceived, fiscally irresponsible experiment” that could jeopardize funding for public education and state services.
Ethics reform effort running out of time
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are running out of time to consider ethics measures this year. Although legislative leaders are still hopeful, opposition has emerged to suggest the issue is at an impasse. During each of the last two sessions, bills to curb lobbying have been derailed in the Senate by Democratic attempts to reinstate campaign contribution limits. Majority party Republicans argue that campaign finance and ethics should be separate issues. Both sides show no signs of backing down before lawmakers adjourn May 16. A stalemate means Missouri would continue to be the only state that allows the trio of unlimited contributions to candidates, unlimited gifts from lobbyists and no waiting period before elected officials can lobby. “Until we get campaign finance limits to be a part of this, we are not fixing the problem at all,” said Sen. Jason Holsman, D-Kansas City, who had sponsored an amendment to impose campaign contribution limits.
St. Louis seeks crown as chess capital of U.S.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Missouri lawmakers in Washington have formed a bipartisan group to promote the scholastic benefits of chess while further pushing for recognition of St. Louis as the nation’s chess capital. Republican Rep. Jason Smith and Democratic Rep. William Lacy Clay lead the Congressional Chess Caucus. Other members include Missouri Republicans Vicky Hartzler, Blaine Luetkemeyer and Ann Wagner, and Democratic Rep. John Conyers of Michigan. The caucus launch comes as St. Louis prepares to again host the U.S. Chess Championship and U.S. Women’s Championship, beginning on May 7. This is the sixth straight year St. Louis has hosted the paired events. “In rural America, it is often difficult for students to gain access to the tools they need to succeed, particularly in the science, technology engineering and math areas,” Smith said. “Playing the intellectually challenging and competitive game of chess is an effective way for students to develop skills necessary to achieve success in these important fields.”

He said federal workplace safety investigators were trying to determine why it snapped.

Kenny Sanders and Kenny Jermain assemble pallets at the NoCoMo Industries sheltered workshop in Maryville. The two have been working together in the NoCoMo woodshop for 25 years.
Workshop growth tied to recycling By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer
NoCoMo Industries Inc. has tripled the size of its operation since 2010, and this growth has occurred by sticking to a very simple philosophy. “First of all we want to keep as much material as possible out of the landfill,” general manager Nicki Samson said. “Secondly, we want to provide dignified employment for our disabled workers.” NoCoMo focuses on three types of work at its plant, located at 319 South Newton in Maryville: packaging and assembly, custom building of pallets and shipping crates, and recycling. But recycling is increasingly the key, since all three production areas have a recycling component. “When we receive product in our facility on pallets, we recycle those old pallets and give them to Northwest Missouri State University to use for fuel,” Samson said. “Some may think we’re in competition with Northwest as far as recycling, but in reality we have a great cooperative relationship with them. President (John) Jasinski is very supportive of what we do.” NoCoMo accepts and recycles all grades of paper, books and magazines. In addition they accept plastic graded 1-7, aluminum and tin cans. “About the only thing we don’t ac-
cept is glass,” Samson said. “We’re equipped to handle it, but it’s just too dangerous for our workers.” The facility goes through an average of 10,000-15,000 pounds of material a day, sorting it into several specific recyclable categories. With 42 employees, Samson makes it a point to utilize the strengths and talents of each individual worker. “My job is not to determine if they have a disability. That’s determined before they’re referred to us,” Samson said. “My job is to determine what each employee can do, then utilize that ability by assigning them a job they can do well. “This is good for them and good for the team. I get 100 percent out of every worker we have because we only focus on their abilities.” A good example of this strategy is the pallet-constructing duo of Kenny Sanders and Kenny Jermain. The two have been building pallets together for 25 years and work in an extremely efficient manner that emphasizes the skills each man does best. NoCoMo Industries board President David Lawyer credits the community, and the efforts of Samson and her staff, as main reasons why the operation has tripled in size since 2010. “We’ve had great support from the community and the staff over the past four years,” Lawyer said. “Nicki’s
(Samson) grant-writing ability has been huge as well. The monies she has brought in through her grant-writing have been a key to our growth.” Lawyer and Samson are also grateful for the efforts of local trash haulers, and especially Dennis Porter of Porter Trash Service. “Dennis Porter has been a great partner for us,” Lawyer said. “He’s done everything he’s promised he would do, whether it was always best for his business or not.” “Dennis Porter understands who we are and what we do,” Samson said. “We are grateful to him and all of the local trash haulers for what they do for us.” NoCoMo receives funding through a Missouri statute known as Senate Bill 40, a measure that allows local governments to levy a property tax to help support sheltered workshops. In that regard, Samson urged people to use NoCoMo when they have items to recycle since their tax dollars help fund the operation. This process works as a complete circle,” Samson said. “People bring us material to recycle, we recycle it, which keeps it out of the landfill and benefits the community. Our employees are provided with work, which helps them lead productive lives. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.”
Wind farm stirs wildlife concerns MOUND CITY, Mo. (AP) — Several groups have raised concerns about a proposal to build a wind farm in northwest Missouri near a national wildlife refuge that attracts migratory birds. Element Power of Portland, Ore., wants to build Missouri’s largest wind farm on 25,000 acres east of Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge. Element Power plans to break ground soon for the $400 million Mill Creek Wind Energy Project, which will have 84 to 118 wind turbines, each nearly 350 feet tall. “If I could look all over northern Missouri for the worst possible place to put this thing, this would be it,” said John Rushin, a former head of the bi-
ology department at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph. Rushin has also worked and researched at Squaw Creek for 30 years. State conservation areas including Nodaway Valley and Honey Creek surround the site. Squaw Creek, about 100 miles north of Kansas City, has more than 7,400 acres of wetlands, fields and grassland. About 250,000 visitors a year visit to see several birds, including pelicans, wood ducks, trumpeter swans, bluewinged teals, sandhill cranes, blue herons, snow geese and smaller shorebirds. The Audubon Society, the American Bird Conservancy and birders
have predicted that birds and bats will fly into the turbines and be killed and worry that the project could alter migratory patterns. “I’m all for alternative energy, but this is nonsense, a ridiculous place for this thing,” said Jack Hilsabeck of the Audubon Society of Missouri. Element Power chief executive officer Ty Daul said the company is excited to deliver “a Missouri-based source of clean energy.” The company will sell power from the 200-megawatt facility to Kansas City Power & Light. Element Power acknowledges that some birds would be killed but says most species at Squaw Creek fly too high to hit the turbines.
County awarded suit over CMC Continued from Page 1 viduals are protected under limited liability laws. The factory building itself, located on Wilson Industrial Road just east of the Maryville city limits, was held in receivership by Pulaski Bank of St. Louis, which settled an outstanding real estate property tax bill with the county prior to this month’s auction. The 24,000-square-foot plant was built in 2009 and designed to extract carbon black and other materials
from shredded tires. Carbon black is a reinforcing and coloring agent used in the manufacture of synthetic rubber and plastics. Josh McKim, executive director of Nodaway County Economic Development, said Monday he is still unaware what plans Advanced Processes has for the shuttered factory, though the fact that the company bought both the building and the equipment has fueled speculation that API intends to bring the plant back on line. According to its website, Advanced Processes “pro-
vides integrated equipment, system, and process solutions for material handling, agglomeration, mineral processing, fertilizer production, waste recovery, waste to energy, and related operations.” County officials have stated that the delinquent taxes that led to the lawsuit were the result of a misunderstanding over a tax abatement package put together by Nodaway County Economic Development, then headed by Lee Langerock, and awarded to CMC when it first came to town.
Company executives reportedly assumed the abatement covered all property taxes, when, in fact, it was only intended to forgive around 15 cents per $100 of assessed valuation that is the only tax Nodaway County proper collects. The real bill was closer to $7 per $100 of assessed valuation and included levies that provide revenue for Maryville R-II Schools, the County Health Center, the Nodaway County Senior Center, Polk Township and other public and non-profit entities.

Literacy begins at bedtime for youngsters
Yes, parents, you are tired, stressed, juggling family schedules. But please make the bedtime story time part of your daily routine. Children need to wind down before bedtime, and you need to relax, too. It does not have to be long —say only 10 to 15 minutes, or as age appropriate. Maybe parents can take turns, or an older sibling can also take a night. The cuddly lap time is wonderful with undivided parent attention. Let the phone wait. Have you considered what your child is learning while listening to stories? Here are but a few things in four different areas: • Language Reading results in increased vocabulary, correct pronunciation of words, and mastery of word meaning and how to use words correctly in a sentence. There are rules of literacy, such as reading from left to right. Your child may practice letter sound and sounding out words. Inflection in your voice as you read may indicate surprise, feelings, etc. Some books, such as nursery rhymes, can be sung. • Cognitive Help your child to describe what is happening in the picture and predict what will Deborah Clark happen next. How do charMaryville Library acters solve problems and do you agree? Children can learn about letters and how we can make words from letters. Reading helps us find out about our world and its people. • Social/Emotional Children can learn empathy for characters and situations. There is a good opportunity to talk about values, manners , cultures, and traditions. Children can learn about humor and have fun with books. This is a playful time for parent/ child interaction. Reading together also offers a teachable moment about caring for books. • Physical Reading to children increases their attention span and ability to focus. It also helps with eye muscle strength. Children learn how to hold a book and to turn pages carefully. Rocking your child while reading may increase relaxation and spatial awareness. If your child is still wide awake, you might consider stories on a CD or cassette. There is some relaxing music with some of these. This does not take the place of that oneon-one reading, however. As your child gets older, why not have him or her read to you? Happy reading and sweet dreams.

LEGENDS OF THE FALL
‘Hawkeye’ advice was good then — and it’s good today
In 1980, Alan Alda, a star of M*A*S*H, the popular TV series set in an advance medical unit during the Korean War, delivered a poignant address for his daughter Eve’s graduation from Connecticut College. It continues to be widely considered one of the best of its genre ever. I quoted it extensively for all three of our children’s graduations, and do so again now — for my grandson Conrad who will be graduated Saturday from Bishop Miege in Roeland Park, Kansas — and for all the classes of 2014 graduating in Nodaway County. Members of this year’s classes face some difficult times as they move on to continue their education, or into the world of work. I do not envy them, and I lend my sincere best wishes to Alda’s advice. Deep in our hearts, we know that the best things said come last. People will talk for hours saying nothing much and then linger at the door with words that come with a rush from the heart. Doorways, it seems, are where the truth is told. It’s the end of something and the beginning of something else. We linger there with our hand on the knob chattering away. … But the very best things said often slip out completely unheralded and preceded by the words, “Oh, by the way.” … As we stand in the doorway today, these are my parting words to my daughter, Eve. … there are so many things I want to tell you. The first thing I want to say is don’t be scared. With all the giddy excitement you feel — and that I feel with you as you graduate — my guess is you’re also feeling a little uncertain today. You’re suddenly grown with your whole life in your hands. And you’re being flung into a world that’s running about as smoothly as a car with square wheels. I want you to know that it’s OK to be uncertain. I’m uncertain, too. In a world like this, it’s appropriate to be uncertain. You’re an adult in a time when the leaders of the world are behaving like children whose demands are not negotiable. If you weren’t a little uncertain, I’d be nervous for you. You’ve been preparing yourself all these years, but you’re not sure for what. You know what you want to do when you leave school, but you’re not entirely sure what it will be like. Some of your classmates don’t have any idea what they’ll do … and that’s all right, too, because all of you have learned the most important thing that any school could teach you — you’ve learned to learn. If you feel a little off balance, it’s understandable. Adulthood has come upon you suddenly and you’re not all that sure you’re ready for it. …The day before yesterday, you were a baby I was afraid to hold because you seemed so fragile. Yesterday, all I could feel was helplessness when you broke your small, 9-year-old arm. Only this morning you were a teenager. As I get older, the only thing that speeds up is time. But as much as it’s true that time is a thief, time also leaves something in exchange. With time comes experience — and however uncertain you may be about the rest of the world, at least about your own work you will be sure. And that’s something else I want to tell you as we stand in this doorway today. Love your work. If you always put your heart into everything you do, you really can’t lose. If your heart is in it, you’ll probably succeed …. But the reason you can’t lose is that whether you wind up making a lot of money or not, you
will have had a wonderful time, and no one will ever be able to take that away from you. I want to tell you … to keep laughing. … when I think about all the good that laughing does, I get the feeling that making people laugh can be noble work. There are people who think that the only thing that separates humans from the rest of the animals is their ability to laugh. I’m not so sure anything separates us from the rest of the animals except perhaps our extreme egotism that leads us to think that they’re animals and we’re not. But I do notice that when people are laughing, they’re generally not killing one another. So keep laughing yourself and if you can get other people to join you in your laughter, you may help keep this shaky boat afloat.
I want to tell you things that will see you through. I have this helpless urge to pass on maxims to you. But we live in new times. Strange times. Even the Golden Rule doesn’t seem adequate to pass on …. There should be something added to it. …. Here’s my Golden Rule for a tarnished age: Be fair with others but then keep after them until they’re fair with you. It’s a complex world. I hope you’ll learn to make distinctions. … I hope you’ll always make distinctions. A peach is not its fuzz, a toad is not its warts, a person is not his or her crankiness. If we can make distinctions, we can be tolerant, and we can get to the heart of our problems instead of wrestling endlessly with their gross exteriors. And once you make a habit of making distinctions, you’ll begin challenging your own assumptions. … You’ll be a lot less likely to be caught up in bias or prejudice or be influenced by people who ask you to hand over your brains, your soul or your money because they have everything all figured out for you. … I want to tell you to be as smart as you can, but to try to remember that it’s always better to be wise than to be smart. … Life is absurd and meaningless and full of nothingness. Possibly this doesn’t strike you as helpful and cheerful, but I think it is, because it’s honest and because it goads you on. … Maybe it was my natural optimism at work, but … life is meaningless unless you bring meaning to it; it is up to us to create our own existence. Unless you do something, unless you make something, it’s as though you aren’t there. I … know that winter’s coming and when the moment comes for you to wrestle with that cold loneliness which is every person’s private monster, I want you to face the damn thing. I want you to see it for what it is and win. You may not feel it right now, not on a day like this. Maybe it’s something that strikes you — not when you graduate … but only when your
child does. … You can learn the skills of your profession. You can use those skills and others you have learned here and you can dig into the world and push it into better shape. For one thing, you can clean the air and water … or you can try to make the justice system work, You can bring the day a little closer when the rich and privileged have to live by the same standards as the poor and the outcast. Or you can try to put an end to organized crime — that happy family whose main objective is to convince us they don’t exist while they destroy a whole generation with drugs and suck the life from our economy. … Or you can keep the tiger of war away from our gates for a while longer. You can do what you can to keep old men from sending children away to die. They’re tuning up for the song of war now. … They’re asking us if we’re ready to pour the cream of our youth out onto the ground where it will seep into the earth and disappear forever. Tell them we’re not. The time to stop the next war is now, before it starts. If you want to take absurdity by the neck and shake it till its brains rattle, you can try to find out how it is that people can see one another as less than human. How people can be capable of both nuture and torture. … When a new draft was proposed …, some kids raised signs that said “Nothing is worth dying for.” I don’t agree. … but … I question if anything is worth killing for. If you’re interested, you can question that, too, and you can try to find out why people all over the world … have, at one time or another, found it so easy … to use other people, to make them suffer and to just plain do away with them. And while you’re doing all of that, there’s something else you can do. … Everything you have is a privilege, not a right. A privilege is given and taken away at the pleasure of those in power. … The soup of civilized life is a nourishing stew, but it doesn’t keep bubbling on its own. Put something back in the pot as you leave for the people in line behind you. … I want you to be potent; to do good when you can and to hold your wit and your intelligence like a shield against other people’s wantonness. And above all, to laugh and enjoy yourself in a life of your own choosing and in a world of your own making. I want you to be strong and aggressive and tough and resilient and full of feeling. I want you to be everything that’s you, deep at the center of your being. I want you to have chutzpah. Nothing important was ever accomplished without chutzpah. … Don’t ever aim your doubt at yourself. Laugh at yourself, but don’t doubt yourself. … Be bold. Let the strength of your desire give force and moment to your every step. … Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory. Be brave enough to live life creatively. … You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you’re doing, but what you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover will be yourself. Well, those are my parting words as today’s door closes softly between us. There will be other partings and other last words in our lives, so if today’s lingering at the threshold didn’t quite speak the unspeakable, maybe the next one will. I’ll let you go now So long, be happy. Oh, by the way, I love you.

Erin Dinsdale of Milne Dinsdale Seed treats soybeans for local farmers on Monday, May 5. The USDA National Agriculture Statistics Service crop progress report shows that northwest Missouri had 4 percent of soybeans planted as of Sunday, May 4.
Local growers finish up corn, begin planting soybeans By KAITY HOLTMAN Agriculture Editor
Crop growers in Northwest Missouri made progress late last week and over the weekend to have 56 percent of corn planted as of Monday, May 5, which compares closely to Missouri’s overall numbers of 63 percent. In addition, 22 percent of corn acres have emerged locally, comparing to 29 per-
cent statewide, according to the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service weekly crop progress report. This means corn planted and emerged has passed the five year average of this week, which shows 51 percent planted and 27 percent emerged. Erin Dinsdale, owner and manager of the Milne Dinsdale Seed, LLC operation
just west of Maryville, has seen many of her customers coming in to fill up with soybeans since the weekend. That makes sense, since the NASS report shows that soybeans are 4 percent planted, both in northwest Missouri and statewide. The percentage of acres planted is slightly behind the fiveyear average of 6 percent planted this week. “Most of my customers are mostly done with corn and are moving on to soybeans,” Dinsdale said. “Especially with this nice week ahead of us, they’ll accomplish a lot this week.” Recent rainfall kept growers out of the fields for nearly a week. The Nodaway County FSA office reported 1.62 inches of rainfall from Wednesday, April 23 through Thursday, May 1. Fields dried quickly with
warm temperatures over the weekend, and growers were able to get in the fields late last week and over the weekend. Dinsdale also said that this year, most growers are treating their soybeans in hopes to see maximum growth. “Most guys treat their soybeans in some way, with insecticides, fungicides, inoculants, or maybe even full treatment,” Dinsdale said. “I would say this year maybe 5 percent of soybeans leave my place untreated. In the past, our growers who used full treatment, or at least inoculants, saw the best results.” With warm temperatures and only one chance of rain through the end of the week, growers will likely make much progress and welcome rain to soak the fields early next week.

Maryville freshman Trey Oglesby hurls a pitch during the fifth inning of the Spoofhounds’ 12-0 loss to Smithville Monday night at Maryville High School. Oglesby had one hit in the game and struck out one on the mound. Junior Mitchell Worthington started and pitched four innings. Smithville scored two in the first, three in the second and one in each the third and fourth before scoring five in the fifth to end the contest early. Maryville (3-12) is back in action at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at Chillicothe and will then take a week off before hosting Bishop LeBlond at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 13 in its final regular season game of the year.
Spoofhounds advance 4 golfers to sectional round LAWSON, Mo. — The Maryville golf team finished fifth in Monday’s Class 2 District 8 Tournament at Hidden Valley Golf Course in what head coach Brenda Ricks called a “tough district this year.” The Spoofhounds shot a collective 18hole score of 328. Bishop LeBlond won the district with a team score of 314 and was followed by Penney (316), Lawson (319) and Trenton (319). LeBlond and Penney advance full teams for finishing in the top two spots. Four Spoofhounds advanced to the next round — sectionals — by shooting under the cutoff line of 87, which will allow them to compete as a team at sectionals sans the fifth golfer. Sophomore Hunter Hayes earned All-
District honors for shooting an even-par 72 and tying for second with Richmond’s Phillip Kincaid behind Lawson’s Tanner Smith, who shot a two-under 70. The All-District cutoff was 79, or 11th place at this year’s district tournament. Freshman Matt Twaddle shot an 83 to finish 18th while senior Dustin Wolters (86) tied for 20th. Freshman Bryce Farlin (87) also qualified for sectionals as the last individual by finishing 22nd. Logan Zimmerman was Maryville’s fifth golfer. He shot a 94 and tied for 30th. Hayes, Twaddle, Wolters and Farlin advance to the sectional round at 9 a.m. Monday, May 12 at Shirkey Golf Club in Richmond. They will be joined by golfers from the Class 2 District tournament.
Rockets walk-off with a victory By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer
STEVE HARTMAN/DAILY FORUM
South Nodaway sophomore Ben Jermain connects on one of his three hits in the Longhorns’ 7-6 loss to West Nodaway in eight innings Monday night in Burlington Junction. Jermain went 3-for-4 at the plate and walked.
In a game where the winner was high-fiving for joy and the loser was left lamenting about missed opportunities, West Nodaway downed South Nodaway 7-6 in eight innings Monday in Burlington Junction courtesy of a three-run walk-off home run by junior Trevor Meyer. “That was a pretty good high school baseball game,” Longhorns head coach Aaron Murphy said. “Our kids competed, but we just came up short.” Meyer and South Nodaway sophomore Ben Jermain hooked up in a pitcher’s duel through the first three innings, but South Nodaway broke through in the top of the fourth as junior Trestan McGeorge ripped a two-run single which plated senior Dalton Murphy and sophomore Bryce Deen to give the Longhorns a 2-0 lead. The Rockets cut the lead to 2-1 in the bottom of the fourth as sophomore Trestan Sanders singled home senior Billy Knarr. West Nodaway took the lead in the bottom of the fifth as Meyer led off the inning with a double. After Longhorn freshman reliever Trey Farnan struck out the next two hitters, Coach Murphy elected to intentionally
walk Knarr. That strategy backfired when sophomore Justin Chitwood drilled a double, which scored Meyer and Knarr to give the Rockets a 3-2 lead. The score remained 3-2 until the top of the seventh when South Nodaway rallied to tie the game. Jermain led off the inning with a single and moved to second on junior Jed Galbraith’s sacrifice bunt. Dalton Murphy then singled to score Jermain, tying the contest at 3-3 and forcing extra innings. In the top of the eighth, South Nodaway took advantage of a tiring Meyer to score three runs on three hits and a walk to take a 6-3 lead. Jermain’s two-run single was the big hit in the inning. In the bottom half of the inning, Sanders led off by drawing a walk. Sophomore Joel McGinness then reached base via a fielder’s choice, which saw Sanders safely advance to second. Sophomore Damon Hull then singled to load the bases. Senior Jonathon Madere, who entered the game in the fifth inning, drove a pitch to center field where Galbraith made the catch. However, the sacrifice fly plated Sanders, cutting the Longhorn lead to 6-4 and setting the stage for Meyer’s heroics. With a 1-0 count, Meyer drove a pitch to deep left field, which
easily cleared the fence and gave the Rockets the walk-off victory. “As soon as I hit it, I knew it was gone,” Meyer said. “That was a pretty sweet moment.” Rockets head coach Bryce Buholt was pleased with the total team effort for a couple of reasons. “First of all, our kids didn’t get down when they tied it in the seventh,” Buholt said, “and they stayed positive in the eighth after we got down. “The bottom of our order got on base and keyed our rally. They put together some great at-bats.” Meyer finished with a 3-for-4 performance at the plate, which included a single and double in addition to the game-winning homer. Chitwood and Hull added two hits each for the Rockets, now 5-3 on the season. In addition to his hitting heroics, Meyer went the eight-inning distance on the mound for the Rockets, scattering 11 hits while striking out 14. For the Longhorns, Jermain’s 3-for-4 performance at the plate paced the offensive effort, while Dalton Murphy and McGeorge had two hits each. South Nodaway (6-7) will be back in action Thursday, May 8 in Gower, taking on East Buchanan. The Rockets take on North Nodaway on Monday, May 12.

New ‘Spider-Man’ swings into action for this summer season Amazing Spider-Man 2 By Gary Darling Staff Writer
Another week, another super hero movie. It is that time of year when it seems like there is a new comic book-based film coming out every week. Not that this is a bad thing. Far from it, I am a fan of the genre and I am excited to see the film industry taking it seriously, finally. This brings me to our latest comic book movie, ‘The Amazing SpiderMan 2’ that came out this past weekend. Originally, I was opposed to the idea of a reboot of the ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy that Sam Raimi put out with Tobey McGuire in the title roll. It just seemed like a cash grab by
Sony Motion Pictures. As I have watched this new ‘imagining’ of the same source material, I have noticed that I am enjoying this set of ‘Spidey’ films a whole lot more. The main reason is how much fun Andrew Garfield brings to the title character. Growing up, my Spider-Man was a trash talker and so is Garfield’s interpretation. He brings comedy to an otherwise violent moment and I love that about him. Plus, I believe his Peter Parker is more true to the source material, too. With this new chapter in the new ‘Spider-Man’ saga, I was a little apprehensive that there was just going to be too much in it. We kept hearing about this villain and that villain being introduced in this film. It was getting to a point where I thought there was no way that the director would be able to pull off a
fun film because there would be too much stuff going on. Fortunately, I was wrong and director Marc Webb did introduce a lot of new characters, but he did it in very subtle ways, expanding the universe a bit more without making it feel too crowded. This is a fun film. Not as good as the latest ‘Captain America’ film that came out weeks ago, but fun nonetheless. There were times, though, during this film when I found myself drifting a bit. that could have been because it was the 9:55 pm showing at the Hangar. Or it could have been that, although Webb was successful at introducing new characters, his story line was a bit bloated and filled with a lot of material that could have been cut. But, this is a good Spidey movie and worthy of your time and money.

By Jake Coyle AP Sports Writer
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” debuted with $92 million in North American theaters over the weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. It was a solid opening for Sony’s Columbia Pictures, which has released five movies about Marvel’s web-slinging superhero in the last 14 years. The release of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” essentially kicks off Hollywood’s summer season and its annual parade of sequels and spectacle. Marvel movies have regularly commenced summer moviegoing in recent years, and the “Spider-Man 2” opening begins the season with a businessas-usual blockbuster performance. Last week’s No. 1 film, the female revenge comedy “The Other Woman,” starring Cameron Diaz, slid to a distant second with $14 million in its second weekend.
The rebooted “Spider-Man” franchise starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone isn’t performing quite as strongly as Sam Raimi’s trilogy with Tobey Maguire. On opening weekends, the Raimi films grossed, in order: $114.1 million, $88.2 million and $151.1 million. The “The Amazing Spider-Man,” also directed by Marc Webb, opened on a Tuesday in 2012, making $62 million on its debut weekend and $137 million over its first six days. The new sequel, which began rolling out overseas two weeks ago, is also doing huge international business. It has already grossed $161 million abroad, and it added another $116 million over the weekend. That included $10.4 million from China, where it opened Sunday on a record 11,002 screens. And it set a record for Hollywood titles in India with a $6.5 million debut. “Everywhere we opened just popped,” said Rory Bruer, head of domestic distribution for Sony.
Domestically, families made up 33 percent of the audience of the PG-13 “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” a high percentage for a superhero film. “It did seem to have a very strong component to the film, which we felt was an opportunity,” Bruer said. “It also lends itself to a picture that will be around the market for a while, too.” But as Hollywood’s summer rolls on, the competition gets stiffer. In two weeks, Warner Bros. opens the highly anticipated monster movie “Godzilla.” Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak, said that shouldn’t pose problems for the Marvel juggernaut. “In the summer, two weeks is a lot of time between blockbusters,” Dergarabedian said. “You don’t see this kind of consistency in a particular genre that often.” “Spider-Man” follows Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” released by Disney, by just a month. (The “Captain America” sequel is still in the top 5, with $7.8 million in its fifth week.) The marketplace made way for “Spider-Man” over the weekend with no other new wide releases. Sony’s “Heaven Is for Real” continued to appeal to faith-based audiences, hauling in $8.7 million in its third week. 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. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” $92 million 2. “The Other Woman,” $14 million 3. “Heaven Is for Real,” $8.7 million. 4. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” $7.8 million 5. “Rio 2,” $7.6 million 6. “Brick Mansions,” $3.5 million 7. “Divergent,” $2.2 million 8. “The Quiet Ones,” 9. “God’s Not Dead,” $1.8 million. 10. “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” $1.7 million

Postal Service food drive set for Saturday By TONY BROWN News editor
The 22nd annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive conducted by letter carriers with the Maryville Post Office takes place Saturday. Residents both in town and along rural routes are encouraged to set bags containing non-perishable food items beside mailboxes, where carriers will pick them up prior to delivering the food to the Nodaway County Ministry Center. Co-sponsors of this year’s collection, which is part of a larger effort involving postal employees nationwide, include the National Association of Letter Carriers, the National Rural Letter Carriers Association, the Campbell Soup Co., the United States Postal Service, United Way, Feeding America, the AFL-CIO and the AARP Drive to
End Hunger. Again this year Campbell’s Soup plans on donating more than a million cans of their products, adding a boost to the work carriers carry out on the local level. Last year’s local drive collected more than 2,500 of foodstuffs for the Ministry Center pantry, and carriers are hoping to exceed that amount this year. All donations will be used to provide nutritional assistance to low-income families and individuals living in the Maryville area. Ministry Center Board Member Jenni Halley said the postal carriers’ drive provides much-needed contributions to the pantry at the beginning of summer when donation levels typically decline as schools let out for the summer and families leave town on vacation. “It’s perfect timing for us be-
cause we really need to build up our stock for the summer,” Halley said. The drive also helps the center build up reserves for its Brown Bag program, which supplies “kid-friendly” foods like peanut butter and jelly and fruit cups that children with working parents can prepare themselves during June, July and August in lieu of the free and reduced-price lunches served by school cafeterias. Halley said the 2013 Brown Bag effort provided monthly al-
lotments of healthy snacks, easyto-prepare meals, and staples like meat, cheese, milk, fruits and vegetables to 119 children countywide whose families qualify for pantry assistance. She added that the program is important for low-income families who see their grocery bills increase during the summer when school cafeterias are closed. With the conclusion of the annual Feinstein Foundation Million Dollar Challenge, a national food drive in which the Ministry Center
participates, and Northwest Missouri State University’s Big Green Move Out collection, Halley said the pantry is fairly well stocked for the moment. But the shelves, she added, won’t stay full for long. It’s going really well,” Halley said. “We have so much support from the community. But it only takes a few days and the shelves start looking bare again, and we need to have full shelves in summer to accommodate that extra need in our community.
