Holiday happenings start this Saturday

Members of Christ Lutheran Church, Stover, present a live nativity scene during the lighting of the Christmas light display Saturday, Nov. 26 at Stover Legion Memorial Park. This year’s participants in the annual tradition include, from left, Hailey Marshall as the angel; young spectators Brooklyn, Helen, and Stanton Black; Stuart Hagedorn as Joseph; shepherd Pam Witte; camera-shy co-stars Rowdy and Petunia as (what else?) goats; Tracey Durant as Mary; the Rev. Tom Tuura as a king; and Gaylene Bauer as another shepherd. The nativity scene was positioned close to the entrance to the park at Highway 52 and Legion Drive. (photo by R. D. Fish)

Lee joins park board

City council swears in Judd as reserve police officer

The Stover City Council Monday, Nov. 21 approved Charlie Lee as a new member of the Stover Park Board, and swore in Clayton Judd as a reserve police officer. Lee P o l i c e Chief Trampus Jackson noted Todd Goetze was already commissioned as a reserve officer, adding both officers would be put to work as soon as possible. The city council took the opportunity to reappoint three park board members who are currently serving. Brenda Cook and Pam Witte were reappointed for terms ending in 2018, and Gaylene Bauer was reappointed for a term ending in 2019. Lee, replacing outgoing board member John Menning, was also appointed for a term ending in 2019. Police report In his report, Jackson also noted his department’s request for a Local Law Enforcement Block Grant was partially approved. He plans to use the funds to buy four “over-the-top style” bulletproof vests. Jackson noted the department’s new Dodge Charger is in service, but he continued to seek a donor to help pay for the new console that had to be purchased for it. Car 403 apprently needed

either a brake or a rotor, if not both, he said. He also reported he had to replace the police office’s front window, and took the opportunity to add a new police-shield graphic on the glass. Jackson said the date was not yet set for Shop with a Cop, but donor letters had been sent out and he was already taking the names of families in need of holiday assistance. Jackson advised the council his department will soon need a new report writing system, and discussed the possibility of reducing the cost by licensing the new system for only two computer terminals. Public works Maintenance supervisor Nick Dothage, absent, reported in writing about a water and wastewater training he attended Thursday, Oct. 27 and Friday, Oct. 28 on the Lake of the Ozarks, where he picked up a lot of good information. Dothage reported the city’s water and wastewater tests went well in November. He noted there were some issues with the pump at the south lagoon lift station, and he was awaiting advice from the manufacturer. City clerk City clerk Sharon Fry noted filing for the April 2017 municipal election opens Tuesday, Dec. 13. Filing ends Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017. Fry also noted the city must publish its financial disclosure

this year.

Audit report Lisa Officer of the Officer CPA Firm in Springfield delivered the city’s annual financial audit report. Officer reported the general fund account has grown $98,000 since last year, as the city built up its reserves and its street fund. Tax revenue was up 4 percent, administration costs were about the same, and expenditures for public safety, transportation, and the park went down, since there were no current projects or major purchases out of this year’s budget. Meantime, she said, the water and sewer account balance went down $76,000. This was because the city made its first large debt payments on its latest sewer project this year. Also, approximately $45,000 was spent on finalizing the sewer system. Water and sewer revenue was up 2 percent since last year, but a $104,000 interest payment balanced out to a $103,000 loss for the year. Noting the water-sewer account audit is required by the U.S. Department of Agriculture wherever there is a loan for more than $1 million, Officer said, “I think we’re making improvements.” Insurance policies Mike Keith of Mike Keith Insurance, Inc. in Clinton presented liability and property policy renewal quotes from MOPERM, the Missouri Public Entity Risk Management Fund.

The total liability premium quoted for 2017 was $9,078, or $485 less than the premium for 2016. The property schedule needed to be updated to show a 2008 Ford Crown Victoria police vehicle was upgraded to a 2016 Dodge Charger, but as quoted the total property premium for 2016 was $6,910. The premiums for all lines of coverage came to $15,988, $407 less than the 2016 total of $16,395. Keith also advised the council its liability coverage for cyber attacks or data breaches was renewed for one year effective Thursday, Nov. 17 with AXIS Insurance. The total premium for this policy was $2,074. Other business Stover Fair Board president Marty Weber touched base with the city council regarding ongoing plans to improve the park for the 2017 Stover Fair. The council advised him to work closely with park board president Mike Walker, who was empowered to act in park-related matters except to approve spending. Weber asked whether it was possible to post a plaque recognizing a major donor. The aldermen advised him this was OK, subject to park board approval, but the city had a contact to provide uniform recognition plaques for the park. The next Stover City Council meeting is scheduled Monday, Dec. 19 at Stover City Hall.

Duck club

Members of the Stover Duck Club bagged two wood ducks and a mallard Friday, Nov. 25 while hunting off Highway 135 north of Stover. Club members are, from left, Camren Worthley, Landon Thompson, Joe Viebrock, and Charlie Black, not pictured. “We have been hunting for about three years and we have always wanted to kill a wood duck,” Thompson said, “and (when) we came upon on the pond there were three wood ducks and one mallard.” One wood duck got away.

Tommy Capps

Capps book signing Dec. 3 Stover native Tommy Capps plans to have a book signing 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3 at the American Legion hall in Stover.

Autographed copies of the book will also be for sale during the event. Drafted into the U.S. Army at the height of the Vietnam conflict, Capps’ county upbringing did little to prepare him for the horrors of war - except the skills he learned hunting squirrels, rabbits, and small game during boyhood.

Library Bookworm

by Stacey Embry, Director, Morgan County Library We are ending this month with our first book club, Wednesday, Nov. 30. We will be meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the community room to discuss the book Wonder. Starting in January, the book club will meet quarterly. Dec. 10 will be our first LEGO Play. We will be meeting at 10:30 a.m. in the community room. Starting in January, LEGO Play will be on the second Wednesday of every month. Dec. 21, we will continue our youth volunteer group. Our youth volunteers meet the third Wednesday of every month. So, because of all these activities, I recently purchased two large dry erase calendars for the library. We are gradually introducing new activities and it helps for everyone to see what is coming up. We already have various calen-

dars: staff vacation, volunteers’ schedule, community room reservations, story time, and two others I have added in my office. That is insane, right? The exciting part of this is we are moving forward and increasing our services to our community. I have used running analogies before and I am going to use them again. As a runner, you must learn to recover during the run. What this means is when you hit a flat stretch or you crest a hill, you use that time to recover. Some people feel that should be when you make up for the time lost coming up the hill; but with long distance that doesn’t work well. You find yourself depleted and it makes it difficult to finish. As we get busier at the library, I am grateful there are times for recovery. This next week will not be a flat stretch; it will be a busy week for me. I have some personal ac-

tivities, a second Thanksgiving, a visit to a college with my youngest daughter, a library Christmas dinner, and a Missouri Library Director’s meeting. As I list these things--that, honestly, have been causing me some anxiety--I can see they are all positive events. Recovery comes at weird times, but we all must learn to use it to make us stronger for the long run. As a new director, I have learned that some days I have to walk away from the desk. I decorated the Christmas tree today (recovery time for the month ahead). For more information, visit the Morgan County Library, 600 N. Hunter, in Versailles, call 573378-5319; or see the library’s website at morgancountylibrary. org. Library hours are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday.

Stover should give thanks for...

by ish After church Sunday, Nov. 20, as I made the 13-hour drive home from vacation in Verndale, Minn. to Versailles, the first major part of my route ran through the aftermath of a winter storm that, two days earlier, had dumped about a foot of snow on my parents’ driveway. That was an exciting drive, at times. Part of the excitement is knowing that I was heading from sub-freezing temperatures to a place where the highs had been in the 80s that weekend. Yet that wasn’t the most exciting or scariest part of my trip. That distinction belongs to a tour my mother’s fiance gave me, on a four-wheeler ATV, of their ranch on the South Dakota shore of the Missouri River, facing Niobrara, Neb. across the water. Parts of the ranch were high and flat and had a nice, scenic outlook on the river and the marshy bottomland below. Parts of it had a hilliness that would give the Ozarks a run for their money. At times, I jammed my feet

against the front of the vehicle, clutched parts of its frame with both white-knuckled hands, and held onto my breakfast as we negotiated steep ascents and, more worryingly, descents. On one exceptionally high hill with a small, round, pointed top, I got out of the four-wheeler and snapped pictures of the amazing scenery around me. Then I had to ask, “How are we going to get down?� I was afraid of the answer, because there seemed to be a sheer dropoff on every side, with nothing but tall grass to break our fall. We made it down without incident, other than clanking noisily over some unexpected tree limbs and rocks in what my guide facetiously called a road. He reassured me by saying, if we were ever in any real danger, the dog on the seat between us would have warned us by jumping out of the vehicle. At times, though, that dog seemed to be trying to cover its eyes with both front paws. Breathtaking as the scenery

was, the country in Minnesota and South Dakota is very d i f fe r e nt from the lavish greens of the fields, grasslands, and woods of Missouri, a landscape I have come to love. So, that’s what I did on vacation, before you ask. By the way, my dad tells me to say “Hi� for him to anyone who would like him to say “Hi� to them. Remember this guy?

November 27, 1936 Among the recent weddings in the Stover vicinity is that of Miss Myrtle Alderman and Mr. Forrest Robinson. They were quietly married in Sedalia Monday, Nov. 9. The now Mrs. Robinson is the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Will Alderman, who reside on the prairie south of Stover. She is a charming young lady. At present, the couple is residing with Mr. Robinson’s parents and have not made plans for the immediate future. November 29, 1946 Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 13, Mr. Harold Stoll accompanied by his class and county agents Ed Kizer and Bob Stockton, visited several farms in the community to observe some practices which some of the boys can perhaps use in their own farming operations. Mr. Barney O’Neill’s farm was the first stop. The last stop was the McDaniel farm. November 29, 1956 Susan Kay, infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Steinmeyer, was baptized Sunday, Nov. 18.

Stover FFA attends national convention by Taylor Osman The Stover FFA chapter travelled Wednesday, Oct. 19 to Saturday, Oct. 22 to Indianapolis, Ind. for the FFA’s 89th annual national convention. During the trip, the chapter visited Bigfoot 4x4 in Pacific, Mo. The team races monster trucks throughout the United States, and even has a station in the United Kingdom. While there, the Stover FFA got to see one of the team’s monster trucks in action, and took autographs from one of the drivers. Arriving Thursday, Oct. 20 in Indianapolis, the chapter attended the opening session of the convention. Among the speakers was Diana Nyad, an Olympic swimmer from the 1970s who, at age 28, set out to accomplish the most

dangerous swim in the world: Havana, Cuba to Key West, Fla. It took until she was 64 years old to accomplish the feat. No one believed it could be done. After she completed her swim, Nyad had four words for the world: “Never, ever give up.� She continues to repeat these words to audiences to this day. Stover’s delegation took inspiration from her message. They also got to listen to the FFA’s 2015-2016 national president Taylor McNeel, 2014-2015 national president Andy Paul, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, and national FFA advisor Dr. Steve Brown, speak about the importance of agricultural education. After the opening session, the kids perused the FFA Mall and Career Expo for a couple hours.
