by Janet Dabbs A brush fire burned 12 acres Saturday, Nov. 26 near Gravois Mills. Gravois Fire Protection District firefighters were dispatched to a property on Harbor Road, off Route P in Gravois Mills, when heavy winds unexpectedly took control of a landowner’s controlled burn. Upon arrival, firefighters found a fast-moving fire, pushed by high winds into tall grass and then into timber. “At one point, we were concerned that the fire was heading toward airport hangers,” GFPD Fire Chief Ed Hancock said. According to Hancock, crew members attacked the grass fire with water lines and quickly brought it under control. Fire-

fighters then used blowers and rakes to establish control lines and prevent the further spread of the fire, which had spread into nearby timber. The district responded with four apparatus and four personnel. The homeowner had notified the district of his intent to burn, but he did not expect the changes in wind velocity. The district also responded to several small spot fires over the weekend, but were able to put them out quickly. “So far, this wildland season has not been too bad,” Hancock said. But he cautioned property owners should be careful when burning, and should call the fire department to check for fire hazard conditions before burning.

Rocky Mount chief wins first responder award

by Janet Dabbs The Rocky Mount Fire Protection District congratulated Chief Kevin Hurtibise Wednesday, Nov. 9 for winning the 2016 First Responder Award from the Freedom Boat Club (FBC) of the Lake of the Ozarks. Nominations and voting for the award are online. This year, there were 16 nominees, and Hurtubise won the award with 860 votes. He received the award Monday, Sept. 19. The club began the annual First Responder Award after Sept. 11, 2001 to encourage the community to learn about the role of first responders in the community, and to show them appreciation. The club awards the winner a one-year membership, including unlimited use of the FBC’s boats on the Lake of the Ozarks or at any of the organization’s 110 locations nationwide. Bird causes outage, delays call response In other business, Hurtibise reported a power outage that hit Station 1 in October. He said a bird landed on a nearby electrical transformer, causing the outage. The district’s back-up generator didn’t start, and the battery pack on the radio repeater didn’t work. All these issues contributed to a delay in receiving a call to a transformer/natural cover fire. During the call, it was discovered both of the main disconnect breakers on the station were corroded and beyond repair. Two new breaker boxes were installed in the bay area. The annually scheduled generator service was performed after the incident. While the units were being serviced, it was discovered the RMP sensor in the generator at Station 1 and the charging circuit at Station 3 were bad. These items were repaired, and all units at all stations were serviced, repaired, and running, Hurtibise said. All the generators were scheduled for a weekly test run. The

Board seat open The district has received the candidate election packet from the Missouri Ethics Commission. Current board member Alan Moore’s position will be open for election in the Tuesday, April 4, 2017 elections. Board terms are for six years. Hurtibise noted the first day for filing is Tuesday, Dec. 13, and the last day is Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017. Hurtibise said he will do his best to be in his office to receive filings, but due to daily business and emergency calls he could be out. He advised interested parties not to wait until the last day to file. Anyone wanting to file may call Hurtibise at 573480-5225 to set an appointment. Tanker purchase Hurtubise reminded the board about its decision in October to purchase a tanker in upstate New York. He said when he contacted the seller, he was told the truck

had been sold. He did more research and found another truck in Ohio. The board authorized Hurtibise to bid on the truck, and his bid was accepted. The district purchased a 1992 Firovac tanker for $20,000, plus a $20 wire fee. Because of issues with the bank and not getting a wire transfer from the department account, Hurtibise paid for the truck with his personal funds. After discussion, the board approved reimbursing Hurtibise in the amount of $20,020. The district received 28 calls for service in October. It was reported the district’s renewal for the 2017 workers compensation insurance experience modification rate has dropped from 1.55 percent in 2016, to 1.43 in 2017. This will be a savings of approximately $1,587.00 in premium costs. The reduction is due to the district’s participation in the Missouri Injury Management Program and other safe policies

and procedures. The program gives the district an additional five percent in savings. Last year’s total premium was $23,771 and this year’s is $24,749, an increase of $978. A workers’ compensation audit will be completed again in March 2017. Busy month for district The board reviewed a large number of local events at which it had been or would be represented during November. The events included a firemen’s ball and the Rocky Mount Lions Club Thanksgiving Day meal. The Firefighters’ Benevolent Association donated $100 to the Thanksgiving meal. Hurtubise distributed copies of the 2017 preliminary budget to the board members. Discussion and approval of the budget will be at the December meeting. During the public comment section of the board meeting, Pat McCrady distributed a sealed formal complaint to the board. He provided no other information. The board read the complaint. The next meeting of the RMFPD Board is at Wednesday, Dec. 14 at Station 1 in Rocky Mount.

Sunrise Beach FPD passes staffing landmark

by Janet Dabbs As of Thursday, Nov. 10, six full-time firefighters were on duty at two firehouses in the Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District. According to district officials, this is the most full-time staff the district has ever had in any 24-hour period. “We have worked very hard, and our community has supported us every step of the way,� SBFPD Fire Chief Dennis Reilly said. In 2013, voters in the district

approved a seven-cent tax levy increase, aimed at maintaining a minimum of three on-duty firefighters. “The Board has taken a holistic approach to our operations, and we have been able to produce more than we first projected,� Reilly said. District officials say the increase in staffing is needed due to a shrinking volunteer base. “A fire is a fire, no matter where it happens. Our best business practices call for a fire department to be able to put 16

firefighters on the scene of a house fire in 10 minutes,� Reilly explained. Because of time-off issues, there will not always be six firefighters on duty. “I feel very confident that we will be able to maintain at least four firefighters on-duty around the clock, and the board is investigating ways that would be acceptable to our citizens to increase our staff and allow for six firefighters to be on-duty 24/7,� said Reilly.

Overcoming Your Credit Card Crisis The battle with credit card debt can be a constant struggle against high interest rates and monthly payments that never seem to make a dent in what you owe. How is it possible to make monthly credit card payments and never get anywhere? This problem is caused by high interest rates that eats up most of your payments. Even though you make your minimum payment, you don’t make much headway eliminating the debt. Luckily, there’s a way to find debt relief without incurring more debts. Using certified credit counseling like Consolidated Credit,

you can get professional advice to identify the right solution for your needs. A certified credit counselor can review your options to see which solution is best for you. You can qualify for lower interest rates or even eliminate them, while consolidating your credit card debt into one easy payment to get you out of debt faster. Every financial institution differs, but most people see a reduction of total payments by up to 30-50% as they pay off debt faster. Freedom from debt can become a reality!

The pantry noted Missouri has cut back on the amount of food stamps distributed. The pantry hosted a veterans’ breakfast Saturday, Nov. 5, and a seminar about prescription drugs and pain killers Monday, Nov. 21. It plans to distribute Christmas gifts to 56 families, including 112 children. Laurie Care Center Volunteer coordinator Joyce Chorpening reported the Laurie Care Center had a rewarding Halloween trick-or-treat, with 340 people attending, including 220 children. She said the center needs CNAs and nurse’s aides. The Good Shephard Nursing Home District board voted to increase their pay by $.50 per hour, with increases following training. The district plans to improve orientation and change the CNA classes to include hands-on experience. It also will pay for a portion of their time spent in training. The program includes good benefits, with a $60 a month stipend to help with insurance. The classes are free if the students plan to work at the Laurie Care Center, but students will be charged if going to work at another facility. Chorpening reported a new security system was added to the center, which requires employees to enter a password.

She also reported that the center is building a childcare facility that should halve childcare costs for district employees. It hopes to complete the facility by March or April 2017. For information about the childcare facility, call Theresa at 573-207-8782. Finances Ministerial alliance treasurer Richard Dascher reported the alliance’s account balance was $2,584.86. Patricia Dassher reported she had found a missing $1,000 check, which will be sent to St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, along with a $1,500 check from Westlake Christian Church. The board agreed Vacation Bible School funds should not go through the ministerial alliance in 2017. Care Center services: First Baptist Church of Laurie is scheduled to lead Laurie Care Center church services Sunday, Dec. 11. The Community Chapel Church of God will do so Sunday, Dec. 18, and Kent Memorial Lutheran Church will lead the services Sunday, Dec. 25. The alliance is scheduled to elect officers at its next meeting, scheduled 8 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7 at Sunrise Bible Church in Sunrise Beach.

November 30, 1916 At the Sunday evening services at the Baptist church in this city, the Rev. H. S. Thornhill, who has been pastor of the church for four years, offered his resignation as pastor to take effect immediately. Recently the Rev. Thornhill lost his wife who was a great help to him, and it upset his plans and requires a readjustment of his affairs. He finds it necessary to change his field of labor and has accepted a call to the church at Pleasant Hill, on the Rock Island road, 25 miles east of Kansas City. November 26, 1936 Mr. and Mrs. E. J. John, managers of the Musser Tavern located at the junction of Highways 5 and 54, three miles south of Eldon, opened today, Thanksgiving Day, with music by a wellknown Kansas City orchestra.

This past Friday, Nov. 25, I was able to proudly see a goal of mine come to fruition. I now have a restored antique iron printing press on display in my office. The next step, naturally, is to get the necessary tools, type, ink, and supplies to print something, truly bringing it, in a manner of speaking, “back to life� to fulfill its intended purpose more than a century later. I first discovered the neglected press rusting away, lonely and forgotten, in the basement of a historical structure in Arrow Rock. It called out to me like a stray puppy. I made inquiry and was able to acquire the press at a bargain price, with the promise it would go to a good home. It took a lot of effort, the help of good friends and neighbors, some heavy equipment, and just old fashioned sweat and muscle to move the 800-pound press from its basement location, into a covered trailer, and into the back room at the newspaper office. I think my wife may think I am a bit obsessed, but that’s sort of fun. Right? Because I love history and anything that provides a tangible connection to certain time periods, I began to research my “new� press and shortly thereafter joined a group called Briar Press, whose membership is populated with folks of the same mind-set and love of all things print. Following is a sample of some entries that illustrate the progress of the press.

Eugene hands Tigers Middle school basketball season-opening loss season is now underway Eugene pulled away in the second quarter and went on to post an 86-58 victory against the Versailles Tigers in the basketball season-opener for both teams Tuesday, Nov. 22 in Eugene. The Eagles held a 17-15 lead at the end of the first quarter and then outscored the Tigers, 29-13, in the second quarter for a 46-28 advantage at the half. Shane Randall led Versailles with 26 points while Coby Williams added 15. Jonathon Geier scored nine points. Ayrton Gennetten had four points. Hunter Edgar scored two points and Wyatt Espinosa and Tyler Zolecki had one point each.

Mason Kirkweg paced the Eagles with 18 points. “I thought we played with intensity the entire night,” Tigers coach Jason Ollison said. “We have some things that we are going to work on. Playing a top notch program like Eugene first game out is a tough draw, but I thought we held our own.” Eugene won the junior varsity game, 60-25.

Warsaw to exit Tri-County Conference used by the Missouri State High School Activities Association to assign classifications in all activities it sponsors. Enrollment figures for the schools in the new league are: Buffalo (458), Butler (300), Cole Camp (280), El Dorado Springs (351), and Sherwood (260). Warsaw assistant high school principal and athletic director Billy Daleske said district officials had discussed the possibility of leaving the TriCounty “off and on for the past several years. When our new superintendent, Shawn Poyser, came to Warsaw the discussions gained more steam and we were able to get the Ozark Highlands Conference off the ground and started.” Another factor in the decision to leave was the distance Warsaw had to travel for academic and athletic activities held at the two newest members of the Tri-County, Hallsville and Southern Boone. Those schools joined the league at the start of the 2012-2013 academic year. Hallsville is 116 miles from Warsaw and the drive to Ashland is 100 miles. In contrast, the driving distance from Warsaw to each of the other members of

The Tri-County Conference will be seeking a new member following the announcement by district officials at Warsaw that they will become a member of the Ozark Highlands Conference. The Warsaw board of education unanimously approved a motion to join the newly formed league during their October meeting. Other members of the new conference are Buffalo, Butler, Cole Camp (football only), El Dorado Springs, and Sherwood, which is located in Creighton. The conference will begin competition in the 2018-2019 academic year. In a letter to district patrons announcing the decision, Warsaw superintendent Shawn Poyser said there are other school districts in southwest Missouri and possibly schools closer to Warsaw that are considering applying for membership. Warsaw joined the TriCounty in 1980 and is the westernmost member of the eight-team league. It is also the third-smallest member of the conference, above Versailles (384) and Hallsville (377), with 388 students in grades 9-12, according to enrollment numbers

the new Ozark Highlands is less than 60 miles. In an effort to build membership, the Warsaw school district sent a letter of invitation to Morgan County R-II to join the new conference. The R-II board members discussed the offer during their Monday, Nov. 21 session, but made no decision. Meanwhile, the Tri-County Conference has extended an offer to the Boonville R-1 School District to join the league. The Boonville board of education discussed the invitation at their November meeting and was in the process of forming a committee to gather information and make a recommendation at a future meeting. Boonville has an enrollment of 512 students, which would make them the third-largest member of the Tri-County behind Eldon (605) and Osage (551), should they join the conference.

Time passes, products change, Fajen Lumber carries on in 1983 when Martin was in the eighth grade, his father sold his dairy cows and went to work as a full-time carpenter, building houses and barns, which would later lead him toward purchasing a lumber yard in Iowa. Time passed, and Martin continued to work at various jobs-with his father, and on his own. He began to branch out into other occupations and later moved to the Morgan County area where (in 1992) he married his wife, Sarah, who was from High Point. He then moved to High Point and found himself established in the car sales business; however, he never completely left the building trade behind. Like his father, he worked at his day business, and also worked during his off-hours building houses with his brother, Jay Martin. In 2010, Martin and Sarah moved their family to Iowa to be with his father and help with the lumber business. During their time there, Martin’s prospects for the future were growing and branching out in different directions, and in 2012, he and Sarah moved back to Latham where he returned to the building and lumber trades. Another year passed, and Martin was offered the opportunity to become an LLC partner and manager of Fajen Lumber, which was for sale. Like Martin said, “God had a plan,” and all the building experience and working with people he had gained over the years could be put to use. Martin and Sarah now live in rural Stover, and are the parents of five children: Gary, 23; Kimberly, 22; Tiffany, 19; Kevin, 14; and Michelle, 10. Martin is still following in his father’s footprints, bringing his family on board the same way his father Sarah Martin works as bookkeeper at Fajen Lumber in did. A few family members play their own roles in the business. Stover. (photo by Sharon Tausch)

by Sharon Tausch The people of Stover and surrounding areas have long relied on Fajen Lumber Company to provide them with their building and remodeling needs. Time has progressed, products have changed, owners and managers have come and gone, but Fajen Lumber has remained steady in the heart of downtown Stover since 1904, according to Jerry Martin, co-owner and manager since May, 2013. Martin did not start out in the building and lumber business, but he says he is happy to be where he is and likes what he does. He enjoys working with customers, working in the store area, and even making deliveries to building sites. He says he believes “God has a plan” and that “if you trust him to know what is best, all will turn out well.”

Although Martin has been exposed to carpentry and the building trades for most of his life, he could not have predicted he would someday be in a position to help others with their building and construction projects. Born on a rural farm in Lancaster, Penn., Martin grew up to make his living in various lines of work. When he was three years old, his father, Lloyd Martin, bought a Missouri dairy farm and moved his family to Kirksville. He says his father worked hard to support his family within the dairy business, but he also worked during off-hours at being a part-time carpenter and builder. Martin and his siblings worked alongside their father, and learned much about working with wood and the construction process while growing up. Then,

Jerry Martin, left, helps Dylan Kroeschen of Stover select a garage door for a recent building project. (photo by Sharon Tausch) Sarah is bookkeeper, and their son, Kevin, works for his father as Martin had worked for his father (Lloyd). Besides managing the store, Martin says he enjoys working with a dedicated staff that includes Steve Fischer, Ray Sparks, Gordon Ebersole, and Devon Byler, each of whom has brought his own area of expertise to Fajen’s. There have been some additions to the building productlines at Fajen’s, according to Martin. Some new roofing and metal building component products that have been very popular among builders is called M-Loc, by Central States Manufacturing. Martin says, “I found out about it from a friend of mine who lives in Texas. He asked if I’d tried it, and the conversation went from there.” According to Martin, M-loc

siding and roofing is used widely in Texas because it carries a wind rating of 8, and is used in states where the wind velocity is strong. Martin said he remembered his father carried products from Central States, but he had not paid any attention at the time. He says, “It’s a very good 26-gauge metal product that is attractive, carries a 40-year warranty, and customers are using it rather than standard products.” Martin says he enjoys talking to customers and working with the others at Fajen’s, but one of his favorite work activities is delivering supplies to building sites. “Sometimes I am needed to deliver on Saturdays, and Sarah goes along.” Martin says. “We go out early and deliver the building supplies, then stop and have breakfast on the way home.” Martin believes he is blessed

to be conducting business in a building that has been in Stover for so many years. And, yes, he does have dreams of making a few improvements when the time is right. As it stands, Fajen’s, as always, has been a one-stop building supply company for Stover and its surrounding areas. “We carry and deliver every product needed to build complete residential homes and other structures,” Martin said. From farming, to milking cows, to building houses, owning a car lot, and managing a lumber yard, Jerry Martin believes he is proof that a person’s diverse life experiences play significant roles in shaping that person for what he or she is destined to do, and he is careful to remember that no matter how diverse a person’s life may be, “God has a plan for everyone.”

Senior tax board paralyzed by in-fighting James Hodshon of Osage Beach carries a cross and a flag Monday, Nov. 21 up Newton Street toward the square in Versailles. Hodshon, who has walked with a cross 13 years in various communities around the Lake of the Ozarks, said his mission is to share God’s love and forgiveness with everyone. This was his fourth visit to Versailles. (photo by R. D. Fish)

‘Cross walk’ shares message of God’s love and forgiveness A man carried a cross and a flag during the noon hour Monday, Nov. 21 up and down Newton Street and around the courthouse square in Versailles. Unlike James Anania, who passed through Morgan County in September carrying a cross, James Hodshon of Osage beach was not on a coast-to-coast “cross walk.” For the past 13 years, Hodshon has been carrying a cross around public areas in the Lake of the Ozarks region, including four visits to the state capitol in Jefferson City. Monday’s visit was his fourth cross walk in Versailles. After walking in Eldon earlier in the day, Hodshon said he decided to come to Versailles, since it was a nice day. “I don’t like it when it’s so hot,” he said. Hodshon said he was inspired by global evangelist Arthur Blessed to start his own non-denominational cross-bearing minstry, Carry the Cross Ministries. He started doing it every year

on Good Friday, but said God commissioned him two years ago to take it more places and make it more visible. “My mission is to share God’s love and forgiveness with everyone,” said Hodshon. “This is how I share it. I share it through the cross.” Hodshon, who works at Culver’s Restaurant in Osage Beach, said he walks to work every day carrying a cross. “I’ve ministered to a lot of people,” he said, noting in particular his ministry to the homeless and people on the streets. “I’ve prayed for a lot of people, and a lot of people have joined me in prayer as well. “Sometimes I get people to walk with me,” he added. For example, a state legislator once joined him for a walk around the capitol building. Hodshon shares stories, pictures, videos, and occasional live feeds of his personal ministry on facebook.com. Search for him by name, or search for “Carry the Cross Ministries.”

Deputies make drug bust A report of a suspicious vehicle led deputies from the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) to arrest two people on drug charges Thursday, Nov. 17 near Versailles. According to a Tuesday, Nov. 22 MCSO press release, deputies met the vehicle southbound on Highway D, north of Versailles city limits. After the vehicle passed, the deputies saw the driver throw something from the vehicle. They stopped the vehicle and retrieved the item thrown out on the road. The item proved to be a large zip-lock bag containing 10 smaller baggies that, in turn, contained a crystalline substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine. Both occupants of the vehicle were transported to the Morgan County Jail, and a warrant search was executed on the vehicle. During the search, two more baggies were found be-

Hunter

Guests and board members remarked about an atmosphere of conflict during the Morgan County Senior Tax Board’s Monday, Nov. 21 meeting at the Morgan County Library in Versailles. The first rumbling of unrest came early in the meeting, when the board failed to act on three of four board-funded organizations’ request for emergency funds needed to avoid having to cut services to their clients. The senior tax board approved board member Elizabeth Wilcox-Haney’s motion to disburse emergency funds to Phoenix Home Care. Wilcox-Haney also moved to provide the emergency funds requested by Medical Missions for Christ, but her motion died without a second. Board chairman George Fleming called for motions regarding the emergency funding requests from American Home Care and Four Seasons In-Home Services, but no board member spoke up, so the requests were tabled. Representatives of the organizations who were present asked the board to advise them what was needed to ensure their requests would be considered. Board treasurer Jeanne Smith explained the senior tax board has only received approximately $166,000 of the $204,000 in tax revenue it expected this year. Meantime, it approved approximately $190,000 for the year to fund organizations that serve seniors in Morgan County. When asked why the senior tax board, with an account balance of more than $30,000, could not fund requests totaling less than $5,000, Smith said she thought the board needed to keep

a certain amount in reserve. An attendee, using her smart phone, looked up the minutes of a Nov. 17, 2014 meeting at which the senior tax board lowered the amount it is required to keep in reserve to $15,000. Smith then clarified her statement, saying the board was concerned about its ability to meet its 2017 obligations, in case next year’s tax revenue also falls below budgeted expectations. Board member Patty Forrest said she wanted the board to keep funds in reserve in case it needs a legal defense fund in reference to recent efforts by herself and some other board members to remove Wilcox-Haney from the senior tax board. Attorney Andrew Rankin rose to rebuke the board for exceeding its authority by attempting to unseat Wilcox-Haney on the grounds that her primary residence is outside Morgan County. He noted she does have a home in Morgan County, and argued this satisfies the board’s bylaws regarding eligibility. Rankin also pointed out since Wilcox-Haney was appointed by the Morgan County Commission, she cannot be removed by an action of the senior tax board. In response to a question by Rankin, Forrest admitted she had asked Morgan County Prosecuting Attorney Dustin Dunklee for advice about removing Wilcox-Haney, but Dunklee told her he could not advise her due to a conflict of interest. Rankin also alleged the senior tax board violated the Missouri Sunshine Law by having a meeting to discuss WilcoxHaney’s removal from the board at a time that was not publicly

announced. Representatives of service organizations funded by the senior tax board began to ask, by way of clarification, whether the board was delaying action on requests for emergency funding, knowing it would impact the county’s seniors. One guest loudly demanded, “Did I hear you say you need to short residents of Morgan County to save money for your legal defense?” Forrest replied, “I didn’t cause it,” referring again to her case against Wilcox-Haney’s eligibility for board membership. Rankin argued that question is for the county commission to determine. Fleming invoked a rule limiting public comment to 20 minutes to end the discussion. 2017 proposals During a more sedate phase of the meeting, the board reviewed requests for funding in 2017, pending action at its December meeting. The following organizations applied to be funded. • Versailles Nutrition Site. • West Side Senior Center. • Westlake Aquatic Center. • American Home Care, which hopes to double its number of clients served, currently nine. • Food 4 Morgan County. • Four Seasons In-Home Services. • The Golden Age Living Center Guild, which guild member Myrna Schroder explained is applying not on behalf of the nursing home, but as an umbrella organization for a monthly senior dinner at Stover United Methodist Church. • Phoenix Home Service,

also hoping to add four or five clients to the eight it currently serves. • Medical Missions for Christ, which provides dental care. • Stover Community Betterment Council, to provide quarterly senior dinners at the Stover Community Center. • Ivy Bend Food Pantry, to help provide weekly senior dinners attended by approximately 68 people each week, plus bringing meals to 11 or 12 homebound adults. Fleming advised organizations to understand if they are not awarded the full amount of their request. He noted the senior tax board’s projected tax revenue next year is $204,200, but the total of all its funding requests is $237,390. On a personal note, Fleming said he would like to start visiting some of the sites that apply funding from the senior tax board to serve Morgan County seniors. He said though he lives in extreme northwest Morgan County, he spent his career working in Pettis County, where his children went to school. Until lately, he has not taken much notice of affairs in Morgan County, except to pay taxes here, but he hopes to begin changing that. Following closure of the public comment phase of the meeting, Fleming called for a motion to adjourn, so the board could go into an executive session. No closed meeting was listed on the agenda, however. After adjourning, the board voted to re-open the meeting and schedule its next regular meeting 4:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 19 at the library in Versailles.

Child abuse leads to drug arrests Information alleging that a child had access to methamphetamine led the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) to make three drug arrests Thursday, Nov. 10 at a home off Green Hills Road, near Laurie. According to a Tuesday, Nov. 22 MCSO press release, the Department of Family Services, Children’s Division, reported Kelsey West and her 2-year-old child had missed an appointment the previous week for a hair follicle test, even after receiving a fuel voucher from the DFS. Deputies went to the West residence and received consent to search the home. Inside were Jennifer Mullies, Jimmy Lang, West, and her child. During the search, deputies found remains of marijuana cigarettes on a nightstand, feet away from where the child was sleeping. While moving blankets around the child, deputies also found a metal smoking pipe with burnt marijuana. Also found in the room was a bag containing marijuana. While searching a bathroom entered from the living room, deputies found a bag containing a white crystalline residue in a trash can. The bag later tested positive for the presence of methamphetamine. The home’s occupants were placed under arrest and transported to the Morgan County Justice Center, pending filing of charges, and the child was placed in the custody of the DFS

A former employee of Morgan County dispatch was recently charged with three counts of forgery and two counts of misuse of official information by a public servant. Camilla F. Iman, 49, of Cole Camp was charged Tuesday, Oct. 18 in Morgan County Associate Circuit Court. The charges were bound over Wednesday, Nov. 16 to the 26th Missouri Judicial Circuit. The complaint by special prosecuting attorney Shayne W. Healea of California, Mo., alleges Iman used the Missouri Uniform Law Enforcement System, MULES, to obtain identifying information of two other women, Kathy Graham and Marry Vogt. The complaint also alleges Iman used this information, along with identifying information of her sister Tresa Newkirk, to apply for several loans under the three women’s names without their knowledge or consent. Probable cause According to a Wednesday, Oct. 12 probable cause statement by Detective Kyle Towles of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), Towles and Sgt. James Walker uncovered evidence of the identity theft while investigating a fraud complaint regarding the Speedy Cash loan service. Based on information obtained from an investigative subpoena for Speedy Cash, Walker learned the money fraudulently obtained from Speedy Cash was deposited into an account at Citizens-Farmers Bank in Cole Camp. An IP address contained in the Speedy Cash file showed the loan account in Vogt’s name was accessed by computers on the MCSO’s network. Towles followed up by prepar-

ing a subpoena for the account information at Citizens-Farmers Bank, which showed the account was in the name of Camilla Bishop, also known as Camilla Vogt, Camilla Twyman, and Camilla Iman. At that time, Iman was an employee of Morgan County dispatch and worked in the jail kitchen at the Morgan County Justice Center. Bank records showed a $545 deposit from Speedy Cash May 27, 2015, the date and amount of the loan fraudulently obtained in Marry Vogt’s name. MULES records showed Iman accessed Vogt’s personal information May 22, 2015, using computers at Morgan County dispatch. A review of Iman’s bank records showed several returned checks endorsed by Kathy Graham, also an employee at the jail kitchen at the Morgan County Justice Center. Detectives Towles and Kyle Eckhoff spoke with Graham, who said she was unaware of any of this. On checking her credit history online, Graham found debtors Cash Central and Axcess Financial Services had submitted inquiries about her credit. The Cash Central account showed an outstanding debt of $1,500. Graham said she had never used these companies. Towles also learned Newkirk had made a complaint of identity theft to the Versailles Police Department. Towles spoke with Newkirk and collected her paperwork regarding the case. Newkirk noted she had multiple inquiries on her credit report from online “payday loan” type companies. Interview with Iman Eckhoff and Towles trav-

eled to Iman’s residence in Cole Camp and advised her of the reason for their visit. She invited them into the home and stated she understood she was speaking to them of her own free will and could ask them to leave at any time. After the detectives advised Iman of the evidence they had collected, she admitted applying for loans in Graham’s name using her name, Social Security number, and date of birth obtained from MULES. She obtained a loan in Graham’s name for approximately $1,000. Iman also said she obtained one or two loans using Newkirk’s name, date of birth, and Social Security number, and a loan using the same information about Vogt. Iman said none of these three people was aware, nor did she have their permission to apply for or receive loans. She told the detectives she was attempting to pay back the loan under Vogt’s name, and had paid off one loan obtained under Newkirk’s name. Iman said Newkirk, Vogt, and Graham were the only victims, and explained she had used the money to start over after a divorce. Iman contacted her bank, Commerce Bank of California, Mo., and authorized them to fax her bank statements from October and November 2014 to Towles. These bank records showed a deposit Oct. 20, 2014 of $570 from Speedy Cash, and Oct. 21, 2014 of $1,500 from Cash Central. Arrested, charged Iman was arrested Tuesday, Oct. 18 and held under a $75,000, 10-percent cash or surety bond. She appeared Wednesday, Nov. 16 before Judge Kevin

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.
