‘Evening of Gospel’ March 22 Out, has had two consecutive #1 songs for “On the Banks of the Promised Land” and “Mighty Big God” as well as receiving 2 GMA Dove Awards for Country Song of the Year and Southern Gospel Album of the Year. “Each time we go into the studio to record a new album,” Karen shares, “we’re at a different place in our walk with Christ than the last time we prepared for a recording. Therefore, obviously, each recording pulls at a different heartstring, yet the message of hope is always present. That’s what life in Christ is all about. As a result of various circumstances each of us has faced over the past years, we’re at a point in our lives where we realize that anything we achieve or accomplish is all because of Christ. It is an honor to serve Him.” With appearances on such prestigious stages as The Grand Ole Opry, Gaither Homecoming concerts, Opryland Theme Park, Dollywood and Six Flags and Missouri’s own Silver Dollar City, New River has firmly established their place at the forefront of Southern Gospel Music. The group has enjoyed many honors and accolades and they have consistently received radio airplay at stations nationwide. Hit releases have flowed their way in bunches, and they have enjoyed many Number One songs. A few of their other previous popular hits include: “Hold Me While I Cry”, “Just One Touch” and “When Jesus Passes By”. Additionally, the group’s
Number One hit, “Four Days Late”, was also named Song of the Year by readers of The Singing New Magazine in 2001 and the SGMA Awards and continues to be a favorite among audiences. The youngest of three daughters, Karen was exposed to the traditional sounds of Gospel Music at a very early age. Her parents often took Karen and her sisters, Susan and Sandra, to the allnight sings in Atlanta, and these concerts left an indelible mark on the youngsters who made a pact that someday they would share a musical ministry of their own. One of the groups often featured at the Atlanta concerts was The Lefevres, who later became known as The Nelons. It would be a mild understatement to say that Karen had aspirations of singing with this talented family. In fact, that aspiration became her greatest desire, and in 1981, this dream became a reality when Karen was invited to travel with her favorite group. She remained with The Nelons for 10 years, gaining the respect of industry peers and fans alike with her exceptional vocal ability and caring personality. Finally in 1991, the realization of yet another dream came to pass when Karen and her sister, Susan, with Karen’s husband Rickey, organized the musical entourage of Karen Peck and New River. Today the New River team consists vocally of Karen, Susan, and Jeff Hawes. Additionally, Karen’s husband, Rickey, serves as the group’s road manager and sound technician. Their son Matthew plays guitar for the group. Susan’s husband, David, is the founder and owner of the Jackson Steel Guitar Company. Dawn Hughes has traveled with the group since year 2000 as Karen Peck and New River’s assistant making New River a complete family affair. New River sets a new standard for musical perfection with rich vocal harmony that is shaded with the sophistication of Southern Gospel, country and progressive musical sounds. New River today stands not only as a talented and successful recording artist, but more importantly, effective messengers presenting the Gospel, through Jesus Christ.

The Standard News
by Superintendent Bill Black
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your interest in the future of Ozark National Scenic Riverways. I appreciate that the park is important and relevant to so many people. I enjoyed meeting many local residents and park users during the public meetings that were held in January. I am impressed and pleased with the volume of comments, as well as the tremendous level of involvement at those meetings. One thing that’s very clear is that passion for the special places and experiences of the Riverways runs deep. I realize there are lots of questions about the proposals in the Draft General Management Plan (GMP) for Ozark National Scenic Riverways and the next steps toward finalizing the GMP. I have decided to write a bi-weekly column to try to answer some of the questions raised about the Draft GMP, and to keep you updated on our progress as we read through all of your comments. In addition to giving you a status update, this week’s column will address some questions about proposed changes to motorboat use. Approximately 4000 comments were submitted on the Draft GMP. Right now we are reading through them and hope to have a full report summarizing the comments and our responses by mid-summer. We hope to have a final GMP completed later this year. It’s important to remember that the Draft GMP is truly just a “draft”. The management proposals in it were developed after listening to feedback from thousands of people about their vision for enjoying the Riverways in the future. This latest round of public comment will help us understand where it makes sense to make changes to those proposals. One of the concerns I’ve heard often relates to the proposed changes to motorboat use on the rivers. We have heard from a number of folks asking “Why is the NPS try-
ing to reduce the size of the boat motors below Big Spring?” or “What is the purpose of having non-motorized zones on the upper reaches of the rivers?” I’d like to provide some insight into why we proposed those changes. Thirty years ago, when the last GMP was developed, it would have been hard to imagine what “unlimited” horsepower for boat motors could eventually mean. Looking ahead 20 years, it is again difficult to predict what advances in jet motors might be made. In the interest of public safety and prudent management of our rivers, we recognize that “unlimited” horsepower might not be best for the park or the public. During the scoping phase of this process, and again when the alternatives were first presented, many of the public comments suggested we adjust the “unlimited” motor size below Big Spring. The proposal to designate non-motorized zones on the upper stretches of both rivers has also raised some questions. The idea stems from concerns raised by park users about congestion in some areas, where large numbers of floaters and boaters are trying to navigate the same stretches of the rivers. Many previous comments expressed the desire to have a recreational experience on the rivers that did not include motorized vessels and suggested that non-motorized zones in the upper reaches of the rivers might provide those opportunities. During the recent public comment period we heard concerns about how the non-motorized zones might impact traditional cultural activities such as gigging and trapping. As we move forward with comment analysis, we plan to make appropriate adjustments in the final GMP. I hope this answers a few of your questions about the proposals related to motor boats at Ozark National Scenic Riverways. Next time, I will provide an update on where we are in the comment analysis process and address questions we have heard about the potential impacts of the plan on horseback riding. To learn more, you can read the “Summary of Key Excerpts” from the Draft GMP by visiting the park website at www.nps.gov/ozar and clicking on the link to the Draft General Management Plan.

Capitol Report: Congressman Jason Smith Reining In Executive Overreach
The Constitution is clearCongress has the duty to write laws and, once they are enacted, it is the President’s responsibility to enforce the laws. Article II, section 3 of the U.S. Constitution declares that the President “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” However, President Obama has failed on multiple occasions to enforce acts of Congress that he disagrees with. President Obama has also stretched his regulatory authority to put in place policies that are too extreme to get through Congress. The President’s executive overreach is accelerating at an alarming rate. Examples of President Obama’s failure to execute laws include: - Delaying the ObamaCare individual mandate for special interests; - Refusing to enforce federal immigration laws; - Ignoring welfare work requirements, a clear violation of the 1996 welfare reform law; - Failing to enforce federal drug laws This week the House of Representatives acted to reign in the Obama administration’s executive overreach. The
House passed the Executive Needs to Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments of the Law Act or ENFORCE the Law Act to restore balance to the separation of powers outlined in the Constitution. The ENFORCE the Law Act allows the House or the Senate to authorize a lawsuit against the Executive Branch for failure to execute the laws. This legislation also provides for expedited consideration of the claim so that the courts cannot stall the lawsuit. Additionally, the House passed the Faithful Execution of the Law Act to strengthen current laws and to ensure that all federal executive officials fully execute the laws on the books. The Faithful Execution of the Law Act promotes transparency and honesty by requiring all federal executive officials who are not enforcing federal law to report to Congress on their reasoning for non-enforcement. It is a shame that Congress has to pass laws requiring the Executive Branch of our government to follow the Constitution. However, the Obama Administration has failed time and time again to uphold Article II, section 3 of the U.S. Constitution that says the President “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” I remain committed to working with my colleagues in the House of Representatives to hold the Obama Administration accountable and restore the balance of power outlined in the Constitution.
Beauty In and Around the Community A Better Choice Why not plant a Bradford pear? Spring is a common time to plant trees, and those pears are sure popular. Most folks recognize their beautiful white flowers in the spring, the glossy green leaves that turn a deep red in the fall, and the pretty pyramid shape of the tree. Well, there are several good reasons why some other tree might be a better choice. First reason not to plant a Bradford pear is that they are becoming an invasive species. When first developed, their fruit was thought to be sterile. However, over the years it has become apparent that they do reseed, and do so prolifically. The literally take over nearby flower beds, unmowed grassy areas and fields. Recently they have been placed on the invasive species list. Bradford pears are also very susceptible to wind damage. Large limbs are easily torn off in storms, leaving the tree misshaped, or having to be taken out altogether. Those ornamental pears are properly called Callery pears....and there are a number of different types. Bradford is the most common, and also the weakest of the group. Some say that the others, Cleveland or whatever cultivar, are better; but none of them are the strongest type of trees and all are invasive. Another drawback is that they are so common. For a period of time it seemed that Bradford pears were the only tree that anyone planted. If they ever get a pest or disease problem, all will be susceptible. The Dutch Elm disease wiped out many cities and towns of almost all their
trees years ago because Elm trees were planted in such great numbers. It makes much more sense to diversify. If you buy what is most popular, you are passing up the chance to try some of the other wonderful trees that are available in many nurseries. The fact that the Bradford pear is not a native species might make it less tolerant to our growing conditions here in Missouri. When you choose natives, you have an advantage of hardiness built into the tree. A few suggestions might include our native dogwood. They are popular and common, and appreciate afternoon shade. Redbuds are another native. Yellowwood and fringe trees both are natives with white flowers in the spring. So is the serviceberry. It is actually the first to bloom in the spring. Many crabapples are available in the nursery trade. Make sure that any selection of crabapple is listed as disease resistant. The fruits they bear are variable; some tiny, some large, some red, some yellow etc. Check with your nurseryman. There are also many other varieties of small flowering trees that are desirable to plant in your yard. Have some fun and do some investigating....and pass the offerings of the Bradford pears by in favor of something else.
Policy Decisions Affecting Our State
Cause for Concern No. 1 This week the Senate debated many worthy issues. There are, however, a few issues that we, as the Missouri General Assembly, have not debated that I have been concerned with and wish to address. The state has long been a leading promoter of ethanol, a corn-based fuel that is blended with regular petroleum gasoline. In 2006, Missouri was one of the first states to mandate that most fuel contain 10 percent ethanol. Despite the objections of many legislators, and the disapproval of the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, (JCAR) the governor decided to enact a rule that would allow the sale and usage of E15 blends in our state. I am troubled by the fact that the governor encouraged this rule change despite the fact that the release of the blend is beyond the scope of the 2006 ethanol law. The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules voted last year to not allow the sale of the E15 blend. JCAR is charged with the responsibility to review administrative rules filed by state agencies for compliance with Missouri statutes. Pursuant to Section 536.014, RSMo., a rule shall be invalid in the event that there is an absence of statutory authority to promulgate the rule; the rule is in conflict with state law; or the rule is arbitrary and capricious. Late last year JCAR disapproved a rule promulgated by the Missouri Department of Agriculture that would have allowed greater amounts of ethanol to be blended into the gasoline (E-15) sold for most vehicles. The decision was based on the fact that the rule went beyond what’s allowed under a 2006 state law that required Missouri gasoline to contain a 10 percent ethanol blend. It was deemed to be an overreach of power and that the rule was better left to the legislature to make a policy decision, not an executive agency. But this did not stop behind-the-scenes efforts between the governor and the Department of Agriculture. Together they decided to develop a plan and move forward with a rule allowing the sale of E15. At this point there is nothing the General Assembly can do to stop this. The change could take effect as soon as May 30 if the Department of Agriculture publishes the rule in time; and the E15 blend could be available as soon as this summer at any of the state’s 3,800 gas stations, if the business chooses to sell the blend. I do not support the sale of E15; it violates the 2006 law and the ruling by the JCAR, which states: “the Legislature — not an executive agency — must make the policy decision about whether to allow it.” E15 blend may also pose a threat to owners of some vehicles that may accidentally fuel up with the blend, or are unaware that it may not be meant for use in their car. While it may be a few cents per gallon cheaper than even the E10, many vehicles are not equipped to use the E15 blend, and by filling a vehicle with the blend, it may result in the need for repairs to the engine and possibly void the vehicle’s warranty. Cause for Concern No. 2 Missouri’s constitution defines marriage as between one man and one woman. In 2004, voters passed a constitutional amendment that bars same-sex marriage in our state. Just a few months ago, our governor issued an executive order stating same-sex couples, who married in other states, could and should file state income taxes jointly. The governor claims he is allowing the filings because federal law also allows joint filings, and Missouri law currently requires that the state tax filings mirror those filed with the federal government. Any couple who files a joint federal tax return is now required to file a joint state return. Missouri is among 32 states that bar same-sex marriage; with the governor’s executive order, Missouri is the only state to allow same-sex couples married elsewhere to file joint returns. I stand with the people of the state who voted in 2004 to declare marriage to be between one man and one woman in our state. I am deeply worried that the governor issued this executive order knowing full well how the citizens of his state felt. The 2004 vote was overwhelmingly against same-sex marriage in our state. That year, 71 percent of Missouri voters opposed same-sex marriage. Welcoming Capitol Guests As always, I appreciate it when groups from around Missouri and from our community back home come to visit me at the Capitol. This week I had visitors from Missouri State Teachers Association; Missouri Library Association; Willow Health Care, Inc.; Ripley County Prosecutor, Chris Miller; members of the Missouri Health Care Association; Dr. Leonard Scott and several other pediatricians from the district; members of the Missouri Soil and Water Districts; a group of home-schooled children from Willow Springs and last but certainly not least, Andy Miller, assistant district engineer for the Missouri Department of Transportation. If you would like to arrange a time to come and visit me in Jefferson City, or if you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact my Capitol office at (573) 751-1882.

Ukrainian Egg workshop to be held at MVUM Ukrainian eggs are an ancient and traditional folk art common to Eastern Europe in the area of Poland and the Ukraine. The custom of creating these beautiful eggs began over 2000 years ago, before the birth of Christ. Each design and color on the egg has meaning which changed to Christian imagery with the arrival of Christianity in Europe. The egg designs are created with wax on the white eggs, then progressively dyed and waxed to achieve beautiful
and meaningful art. A workshop about Ukrainian eggs will be held at the First Presbyterian Church, 2nd and Ash in Mountain View on Saturday, March 29 at 1:00 p.m. All members of the community who are interested in art, eastern European culture, or Christian customs are invited to attend. There is no
charge. An opportunity to enroll in a hands-on class to learn to create the Ukrainian eggs yourself will be offered at the workshop, as well. For further information, contact the minister at the church Rev. Diane Cooke at 417 257 8349 or workshop instructor Nancy Hedrick at 801-6949284.

INCIDENTS Saturday, March 1, 2014 Members of the WP/HC SWAT team travelled to Wright County in the Mtn. Grove area to assist Wright County and Mountain Grove PD with the service for a high risk narcotics search warrant at the address of 8693 Hwy. N, just outside of Mountain Grove, MO. Upon the service of the search warrant SWAT cleared the secured the location and then turned the scene over to the Wright County Sheriff’s Department and the South Central Drug Task Force for the processing of evidence. Wednesday, March 5, 2014 Deputy Jason Long was dispatched to State Route E Highway in West Plains, MO, for a report of an assault at this location. Upon his arrival, he spoke to the victim who stated that she had been assaulted by a female subject that she knows while at this residence and wished to pursue charges.

From Page One March 12, The department was dispatched to Hwy Y, North of Mountain View for a camp trailer fire. The structure was a complete loss. There was no one home at the time. Electrical lines were closely displayed near the camp trailer which delayed fire fighters in getting the flames under control. During the afternoon on Wednesday reports of a brush fire and shed fire burnt off approximately 3 acres, located off of WW Hwy. On Thursday, March 13 a report of a trailer house fire off of county road 2990. The trailer was being used for storage.

MDC results suggest our efforts to limit the spread of CWD may be working, the threat of this infectious disease remains significant,” said MDC State Wildlife Veterinarian Kelly Straka. “Therefore, continued surveillance is important.” Of the 3,666 deer tested, 1,520 were from Department’s CWD Containment Zone of Chariton, Randolph, Macon, Linn, Sullivan, and Adair counties. Of the 1,520, 206 were from the 30-square-mile CWD Core Area around the private hunting preserve in Macon County where cases of the disease were discovered in captive deer. The remaining 2,146 test samples were gathered from deer harvested outside of the six-county Containment Zone as part of MDC’s ongoing statewide sampling effort. As done in the past two years, MDC again worked with local landowners during January and February to harvest and test 147 free-ranging deer as part of 206 samples collected in the CWD Core Area. The effort was done to monitor infection rates and help limit the spread of the disease from deer to deer by reducing local deer numbers. “More than 90 percent of Missouri land is privately owned, so landowners are vital to deer management and to our ongoing efforts to limit the
caution burning. “It is going to get warmer this week and things are going to dry out in a hurry,” shared Heavrin.
From Page One spread of CWD,” Dr. Straka said. “We greatly appreciate the cooperation of local landowners in the CWD Core Area who participated in this effort. Their sacrifice in temporarily reducing local deer numbers is helping to protect the health of deer throughout the state.” She added that MDC will continue working with hunters and landowners to test harvested free-ranging deer for CWD during future deer seasons. Missouri offers some of the best deer hunting in the country, and deer hunting is an important part of many Missourians’ lives and family traditions. Infectious diseases such as CWD could reduce hunting and wildlife-watching opportunities for Missouri’s nearly 520,000 deer hunters and almost two million wildlife watchers. Deer hunting is also an important economic driver in Missouri and gives a $1 billion annual boost to state and local economies. Lower deer numbers from infectious diseases such as CWD could hurt 12,000 Missouri jobs and many businesses that rely on deer hunting as a significant source of revenue, such as meat processors, taxidermists, hotels, restaurants, sporting goods stores, and others. CWD also threatens the investments of thousands of private land-
owners who manage their land for deer and deer hunting, and who rely on deer and deer hunting to maintain property values. Chronic wasting disease infects only deer and other members of the deer family by causing degeneration of the brain. The disease has no vaccine or cure and is 100-percent fatal. CWD is spread both directly from deer to deer and indirectly to deer from infected soil and other surfaces. Deer and other

Once well established in an area, CWD has been shown to be impossible to eradicate.

Missouri caps season with NIT appearance by Benjamin Herrold Sports Columnist Missouri’s NCAA Tournament hopes were dashed for good in Atlanta last Friday, when the Tigers fell 72-49 to Florida in the SEC Tournament quarterfinals. Missouri (22-11) hung tough with the No. 1 Gators for about 30 minutes, but Florida pulled away in the final 10 minutes. The game came the day after Missouri’s double overtime win against Texas A&M. Missouri’s loss to Florida was a nice effort, but also a reminder that Florida, which went 21-0 against SEC teams this season, is one of the nation’s most complete teams. For the first time since 2008, Missouri’s name wasn’t called on the NCAA Tournament’s Selection Sunday. It broke a string of five straight NCAA Tournament appearances by the Tigers, which tied for the longest streak in school his-
tory. Missouri has made the tournament 26 times altogether, but appearance number 27 will have to wait until at least next year. Missouri was selected to play in the second-tier National Invitational Tournament. The NIT does have a lot of history, if not very much prestige these days. Heading into this year’s edition, Missouri is just 1-7 in the NIT, although as a 2 seed the Tigers have a decent chance to make a run in the tournament. The teams in Missouri’s quarter of the bracket are certainly manageable, as one would expect in the NIT. But an inability to take care of manageable opponents is why Missouri is in the NIT. Still, beating Davidson, Southern Miss or Toledo and then one of Minnesota, High Point, St. Mary’s or Utah is all it would take to get to the NIT’s final four, at world-famous Madi-
son Square Garden in New York City. But the NIT is less about matchups and more about simply seeing the Tigers play good basketball. Play hard, play reasonably smart, win a few games and give some positive final note to what has been at times a frustrating season. Making a run in the NIT isn’t cause for throwing a parade, but it beats playing poorly in the NIT. Should the Tigers make a run to the NIT’s final four, playing at storied old Madison Square Garden would be a great experience for them and some nice exposure for the program. And hey, as challenging as this season was, the NIT brings another chance or two to see the Tigers in action at Mizzou Arena, and a fairly cheap chance at that. Regardless of what happens in the NIT, the story of this season has been written, of course. Even if they won’t
make it every year, the Tigers’ goal going into each season should be to get into the NCAA Tournament, and they had a few too many bad losses to make that happen this year. Next year will be a big year for Missouri, trying to get back into the NCAA Tournament and avoid getting too much negative momentum for the program. The NIT may not be much consolation, but it’s a chance to get a leg up on building some positive momentum.

Letter to the Editor:
Closing of Doe Run’s Herculaneum Smelter Dear Editor Once again Representative Jason Smith has been busy spreading misinformation and untruths about the closing of Doe Run’s Herculaneum Smelter earlier this year It conveniently helps his rant against government regulations. I suspect he thinks this will gather him votes to get re-elected this year. Smith is sorely ill-informed. For more than 110 years, Doe Run and its predecessor, St. Joe Lead, had few regulations to restrict their behavior. Day and night that smelter belched out fumes of lead, cadmium, arsenic and other toxic compounds. By 2001, lead dust was clearly visible on the streets of Herky. When the EPA was formed in the ’70s, it set the national ambient air quality standard for lead. It was based on a THEN acceptable blood lead standard. In the intervening time, the EPA failed to revise that air standard every five years, as it was supposed to. In 1990, sound science lowered the blood-lead standard and the EPA again failed to revise its standard. Science has now found that no blood-lead levels are acceptable. Doe Run also had ample opportunity to either upgrade their old dinosaur of a smelter or replace it with a totally new process that IS much less polluting. It was Doe Run and billionaire Ira Rennert who decided not to improve their processing of lead. They were the ones to send their lead ore to China and have been doing so since early in the 21st century A federal court agreed with a 2007 citizen lawsuit that the EPA was negligent regarding air lead standards. Instead of upgrading its smelter or changing the process, Doe Run chose to close and send its lead concentrate and jobs to China to poison people there. Rep. Smith needs to upgrade his ideas on the regulation of lead. Sincerely, Tom Kruzen Ozark Riverkeepers Mountain View, MO

Letter to the Editor:
Tragedy of the Commons Dear Editor: One of the themes of the Republican party is there are too many regulations. Our U.S. congressman, Jason Smith, said he knows there are too many because there are lots of pages! What nonsense. There is a story about the Inuits of Alaska being asked what they feared most? They had much to fear from polar bears to cold to stormy seas. They answered, “We fear most the heedless ones amongst us.” The heedless ones amongst us are also a threat to us. We can consider if certain regulations make sense by honestly looking at costs and benefits and seeing how they may help promote the greatest good for the greatest number. Many situations require regulations in order to avoid the “tragedy of the commons.” (“The tragedy of the commons is an economics theory by Garrett Hardin, ac-
cording to which individuals, acting independently and rationally according to each one’s self-interest, behave contrary to the whole group’s long-term best interests by depleting some common resource.” Wikipedia) There are many examples of this in history – from the collapse of the Easter Island civilization to the collapse of the cod and herring fisheries. To avoid the tragedy of the commons there needs to be rules that can be enforced to make users of the commons behave in the group’s long term interest rather than in their individual short term interest. Especially in our predatory capitalistic economic system there is pressure to use the commons first and as completely as possible before others do. The rules to protect the commons can be made by a cooperative of users or by a government body, but there need to be rules based on scientifically valid evidence, not conjecture and
wishful thinking (is that really thinking?) or historical practice. Only through understanding the complex interactions of real world systems can we expect to make good decisions. Locally we have two issues that are impacted by a debate about regulations: The National Scenic Riverways management plan and new regulations for new wood burning stoves. As we debate these issues we need to recognize that the commons are threatened by individuals whose actions are uninformed and only recognize the individual’s short term needs. We already see the degrading of the Scenic Riverways by actions of the heedless ones amongst us. Our clean air is degraded by the use of poor quality stoves. We need to consider the long term costs to the commons versus the short term costs to the individual. We need some “commons sense.” Jim Vokac Willow Springs
It’s not too late for area businesses and individuals to donate, organizers said. “We are always looking for new items to spark the interest of our guests,” said Barbara Nyden, assistant professor of accounting/entrepreneurship and a member of the auction committee. “There are no items too small, too large or too unique to be included in the auction.” The event is being sponsored by the West Plains Opera House, FMC Transport, Landmark Bank, Burton Creek Pharmacy, E-Communications, Gammill Quilting Systems, Grisham Properties, Ozark Independent Living, Penmac, Physical Therapy Specialists Clinic and Sheridan & Sheridan.

Health Strategies for Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease Dear Savvy Senior, Are there any proven strategies to preventing dementia? My 80-year-old mother has Alzheimer’s which has me wondering if there is anything I can do to protect myself. Concerned at 53 Dear Concerned, While there’s currently no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, new research indicates that there are a number of healthy lifestyle strategies that can help most people reduce the risk of getting it. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the key factors that increase the risk of getting Alzheimer’s are advanced age, family history and heredity, but research shows that our general health plays a factor too. While we can’t do much about our age, family or genes, we do have control over how we treat our body and brain. Some medical experts even estimate that by following these healthy tips now in middle-age, you can actually reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s by as much as 50 percent, or at least delay its onset by a few years. Here are the recommended strategies. Manage health problems: Studies have consistently shown that Alzheimer’s disease is closely related to conditions, like diabetes and heart disease. So, if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes you need to treat them with lifestyle changes and medication (if necessary) and get them under control. Left untreated, these diseases over time will cause damage to the vessels that feed blood to the brain making them more vulnerable to damage, and increasing your risk of dementia. Exercise: Aerobic exercise increases blood flow to all parts of your body, including your brain, to keep the brain cells well nourished. So choose an aerobic activity you enjoy like walking, cycling, dancing, swimming, etc., that elevates your heart
The Standard News rate and do it for at least 30 to 40 minutes three times a week. Eat healthy: A heart-healthy diet, like the Mediterranean diet, will also help protect the brain. A Mediterranean diet includes relatively little red meat and emphasizes whole grains, fruits and vegetables, fish and shellfish, and nuts, olive oil and other healthy fats. Also keep processed foods and sweets to a minimum. Sleep well: Quality, restful sleep contributes to brain health too. Typically, adults should get between seven and nine hours of sleep daily. If you have persistent problems sleeping, you need to identify and address the problem. Medications, latenight exercise and alcohol can interfere with sleep quality and length, as can arthritis pain, sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome. If you need help, make an appointment with a sleep specialist (see sleepeducation.com) who will probably recommend an overnight diagnostic sleep test. Challenge your brain: Research shows that mind challenging activities can help improve memory, slow age-related mental decline and even build a stronger brain. But, be aware that mind-challenging activities consist of things you aren’t accustomed to doing. In other words, crossword puzzles aren’t enough to challenge your brain, if you’re already a regular puzzle doer. Instead, you need to pick up a new skill like learning to dance, play a musical instrument, study a new language or do math problems – something that’s challenging and a little outside your comfort zone. Brain-training websites like Lumosity.com and BrainHQ.com are excellent mind exercising tools because they continually adapt to your skill level to keep you challenged. Socializing and interacting with other people is another important way to stimulate the brain. So make a point to reach out and stay connected to friends, family and neighbors. Join a club, take a class or even volunteer – anything that enhances your social life. Reduce stress: Some stress is good for the brain, but too much can be toxic. There’s growing evidence that things like mindfulness meditation, yoga and tai chi are all good ways to help reduce stress. For more tips, call the National Institute on Aging at 800222-2225 and order a free copy of their booklet “Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease: What Do We Know?” Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
Mercy receptionist recognized for 25 years of service Debbie Reed began working at Mountain View clinic in 1988 A lot can depend on a first impression, but there’s no pressure if you’re receptionist Debbie Reed. For more than 25 years, her smile has greeted patients at Mercy Clinic General Surgery – Mountain View. “She’s just wonderful,” said Dr. Linda Milholen. “She puts people at ease. If I’m tied up in surgery, she keeps them informed. She has a good sense that if someone is sick, she’ll take them right to bed.” Today, Debbie continues to run the front desk at the clinic where she began at age 33. In 1988, before it joined Mercy, it was a private practice that also delivered babies. “As the years went by, those babies started bringing in their own babies for check-ups,” added Debbie. “It’s gone by so fast. It feels like I started yesterday.”
To mark Debbie’s dedication, Dr. Milholen presented her with an award and flowers – but Dr. Milholen says the true gift has been Debbie’s commitment and compassion. “She’ll be talking away with someone and it’s almost like she’s known that person her whole life. Now that’s a gift. She has never, ever met a stranger.” Of course, during her time at the clinic, Debbie met a few roadblocks. “I began by typing Medicare and Medicaid forms. Back then, everything was on paper,” said Debbie, who has remained a receptionist for most of her tenure. “Trust me, I didn’t want to update to this computer system – I wanted a paper chart! – but now I really do like it better.” “And she really loves kids,” explained Dr. Milholen. “She
is 11 times a grandmother, which is one of her biggest assets in the office. If someone brings in a child, Debbie gets out her box of toys and coloring books and they go to town.” Debbie plans to dedicate another decade to Mercy before she retires to focus on her grandkids. “They’re each so unique. I find them fascinating and can’t wait to spend more time with them.”

Ozarks Fruit & Garden Review Pruning Peaches by Marilyn Odneal Horticulture Adviser We have saved the best for last – as far as pruning goes. Here at the Missouri State Fruit Experiment Station, peaches are the last crop we prune since they can be damaged if pruned too early in the dormant season. In a pinch, you can even prune peaches when they are blooming, but we hope to finish before then. Peaches are usually trained to the “open vase” system where the main scaffolds or limbs form a vase around an open center – like a bowl.
Peaches have flower buds only on 1-year-old wood that grew the previous season. This fruitful wood is colored red and you can see both fat flower and thin leaf buds on it. This fruitful wood should line the inside of the “bowl” close to the main scaffolds – but you need to thin out and shorten some of this wood in order to thin the peach crop. You only need 10 percent of the flower buds after pruning to set fruit in order to realize a full crop. We not only prune the trees to thin out some of the flower buds, we also thin the fruit in the growing season to further

decrease the crop. This is done so the peaches develop into large flavorful fruit, do not crowd each other, and so the weight of the fruit does not break the limbs. Head back the older blond wood that is in the bowl to the scaffold – leaving a little stub where new shoots can grow to renew the fruiting wood. We generally use more of the “heading” cuts, with the stub of old wood left, to get a local stimulation of new growth – the new growth that will bear fruit next year. Heading cuts remove the top part of a shoot and leave buds on the lower part that will break and grow, while the thinning cuts remove the shoot or branch to a point of origin. Just remember this color code. The red wood has the flower buds that will produce fruit in the upcoming season. When this wood bears fruit, new green shoots in the canopy will initiate flower buds and then turn red at the end of the season, ready to bear fruit next year. Older wood is blonde and does not have flower buds. When pruning keep in mind you need to keep the fruit (red wood) where it can be easily picked. The fruiting wood must be well exposed to sun as well as air, so the foliage and fruit dries off readily after rain or dew. Also remove any dead, diseased or broken branches to clean the canopy for a sweet and juicy harvest of peaches in summer.

Grass tetany prevention The cold streak and extra snow this winter has made us all want spring to get here soon. For the cow/calf producer and backgrounder, having grass growing in the pasture will be a nice change from taking the hay out to the cattle. Even when the warmer temperatures come and no hay needing to be fed, there are still management considerations for the health of the herd. Many have never experienced grass tetany problems in the herd, but it is best to be cautious, especially with the current prices of cattle. When dealing with tetany, it helps to know the cause, clinical signs, and that it is much easier to prevent than to treat. Grass tetany is most common when cattle are grazing lush spring forages, such as cool-season grasses and small grains. Pastures with a large legume component are at a lesser danger. The cause is from the deficiency of magnesium (Mg) in the diet/forage and
forages high in potassium (K), low in calcium (Ca), and low in sodium (Na). Stressed, lactating, or older cattle are most likely to be affected. Signs that cattle are affected are nervousness, stagger or falling, and muscle contractions. Treatments must be administered quickly, within a few hours, to be most effective. If one thinks they have animals suffering from grass tetany, contact your veterinarian immediately. Due to the swiftness needed for treatments, measures taken to prevent tetany are much easier to manage. Since Mg is not stored in the body, supplementing high levels of Mg year round will not benefit during the spring flush of forage. Therefore, start supplementing a month before the normal grazing to avoid issues with early growth and have adequate levels in the blood stream to prevent tetany. Producers feeding a commercial mineral need to make sure it
contains approximately 10% Mg (Univ. of Arkansas Extension). A common mix one can supplement on their own is magnesium oxide, salt and either ground corn, dried molasses, or cotton seed meal, at a 1:1:1 ratio (Sexten, 2009). The carrier is needed due to the poor palatability of Mg oxide that can lead to less than desirable intake. Keeping supplements available on a daily basis during the time of need is necessary because blood levels can fall 48 hours after the supplementation has stopped (KSU Extension). Recent cattle prices have made even the old cow with her last calf a valuable contributor to the herd. Planning accordingly will allow for the least amount of problems this spring and hopefully a more profitable year.
