City hires administrator

The City of Mountain View is taking priority in managing city projects on the ‘need to do’ list, which should include follow-thru and stepping up to see local growth. As well as becoming a further growing part in county-wide initiatives, this priority in management comes after the recent vote to hire a new city administrator, Mike Wake, formerly of the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT). Wake resides in Pomona, MO, with his wife Laura. Together they have six children and six grandchildren. Wake previously worked for MoDOT for the past 24 years. He worked in the design department. Wake designed numerous roadways on the state highways system including all of Route 60, the interchange in West Plains along with several overlays. Wake’s design department was responsible for District 9, consisting of 13 counties. Three years ago, Wake was transferred to Springfield where he was over 25 counties in the design department. Before working for MoDOT, Wake spent five years working for two consultants. He graduated from Willow Springs High School in 1980 and went on to graduate from University of Missouri Rolla (UMR) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Civil Engineering in 1984. County Wide: The Ozark Development Corporation serves as a board that works on county wide initiatives. Each community brings their representatives and leaders to meet and discuss

We are all going our separate ways but we will never be separate.” The 2014 Valedictorian, Brett Conway, was introduced by Rebecca Gardner. “I have so many fond memories,” speaking about the classes experiences throughout their years at Liberty. “Our graduating class has produced many winners and brought about respect, reverence and pride to our communities. Hopefully we have inspired a new generation of Eagles to be the best they can be.” Conway went on to state, “What makes life valuable is

A total of 81 students took their final steps through the halls of Liberty High School on Thursday, May 15th. The Class of 2014 left those halls in a unique fashion. Instead of the usual pomp and circumstance, turning of the tassel, this group of students left their mark, with a flash mob. A unique way to end the commencement exercises and one would expect nothing less from this class. “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” The classes motto from Mae West says it all. The 2014 Salutatorian, Seth Hadley, was introduced by SuEllen Price. “This speech was difficult for me to start. How do I begin to sum up our life experiences. The truth is, I can’t and I don’t want to. We all have this place, Liberty High School. While our goals,

In February of 2014 Good Samaritan Care Clinic (GSCC) of Mountain View celebrated 10 years of providing free medical services to uninsured patients in south central Missouri. The clinic began providing dental extractions in January of 2007. During the ten years of its existence, the clinic has assisted patients in over 16,400 medical visits and 2,700 dental visits. Each visit represents a life or lives touched by the lack of adequate healthcare. Not only has the clinic served hundreds of uninsured and underserved from Mountain View, but to

date the clinic has assisted eligible patients from over 15 counties in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. Throughout its existence the clinic has been dependent upon the consistent and generous contributions from many in Mountain View and surrounding communities. Many local churches have partnered with the clinic by financially contributing regularly, including First Baptist Church of Mountain View, St. John Vianney Catholic Church, Chapel Hill Baptist See GSCC on Page 4

In addition to the library and garden club, Toll has been with the Rotary Club of Mountain View for the past 8 years. He has been instrumental in the planning and construction of the Rotary Nature Park. “There’s usually not a day that goes by that I don’t put some time in, one way or another, into the park, planning, writing grants or on the phone. It’s a busy, busy thing for me,” commented Toll on his time with the nature park.

It will mean stricter emission regulations which translates into higher costs. “Coal generation is very, very much in danger,” stated Woodson. Over the years, co-ops have spent $1.1 billion to remove up to 90 percent of emission from coal plants. “We have invested,” stated Woodson on the steps the co-op has taken. “We have purchased electricity generated from renewable resources such as hydro and wind. But we have to be realistic, the wind doesn’t blow all the time and the sun doesn’t shine all the time. Coal is a steady, reliable energy resource.” “The EPA is once again declaring war on rural American with these new regulations. The carbon capture technology the EPA wants to mandate is not even commercially viable. If these proposed regulations go into effect, utility rates will sky rocket for families in Missouri’s Eighth Congressional District,” said Congressman Jason Smith. “These regulations would halt all construction on new coal-fired power plants. Over 80 percent of families in my district rely on coal to power their homes, businesses, schools and farms. Bureaucrats at the EPA do not understand

The future of electric rates for Missouri residents is threatened due to President Obama’s administration ruling to try and reduce the amount of carbon pollution from

power plants through regulations handed down by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The proposed Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions for New Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units

are to include Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology. The new regulations would require plants to use sequestration technology to capture and store CO2 underground to meet regulations. “This technology is not com-

During Free Fishing Days, anyone can fish in the Show-Me State without having to buy a fishing permit, trout stamp, or trout park daily tag. Normal regulations remain in effect, such as limits on size and number of fish an angler can keep.

provides great fishing. According to MDC, more than 200 different fish species are found in Missouri, with 40 of them being game fish for the state’s more than 1.1 million anglers. Conservation also enriches Missouri’s economy and Missourians’ quality of life. Fishing in the state generates more than a billion dollars for local communities and the state’s economy, and supports thousands of jobs. Public fishing areas are available in every county in Missouri. Many state-owned fishing areas also have special facilities for anglers with disabilities. Contact your local MDC office for Free Fishing Days near you, or go online to For information on Missouri fishing regulations, permit requirements, fish identification and more, get a copy of MDC’s “2014 Summary of During Free Fishing Days, anyone can fish in Missouri Fishing Regulathe Show-Me State without having to buy a fishing permit, tions” where permits are sold, trout stamp, or trout park daily tag.

Some private fishing areas may still require permits, and trespass laws remain in effect on private property. Conservation makes Missouri a great place to fish, and Free Fishing Days encourages people to sample the state’s abundant fishing opportunities. Missouri is blessed with more than a million acres of surface water, and most of it

MDC also offers a weekly fishing report and annual fishing prospects report for general fishing conditions at selected lakes, rivers, and trout parks across Missouri. Get the report online at and sign up to receive a weekly email update. Anglers can also get weekly fishing reports and annual prospects, plus more, through MDC’s “Find MO Fish” free app for mobile phones and other mobile devices. Find MO Fish has a geo-location feature to guide boats right up to fish-attractor locations. Find MO Fish also includes a “Best Bets” location feature for certain fish species. Anglers can also view regulations for specific fish species and locations, and get detailed information on various species through the included Fish Guide. The free app will even show you how to obtain fishing permits. Learn more and download Find MO Fish at node/15421.

June events focus on harvesting natural skills School will soon dismiss for summer and the Twin Pines Conservation Education Center (CEC) has scheduled events to help children and adults discover nature. Melanie Carden-Jessen, the manager of Twin Pines CEC, said these programs are examples of how conservation improves Missourians’ quality of life. “Discovering nature means enjoying the natural world and it includes the process of learn-

ing how to prosper from nature,” Carden-Jessen said. “When we learn how to catch a fish, preserve our food for the long term, or ensure our drinking water is clean and fresh, we also gain a sense of self confidence that only comes with a personal knowledge of nature.” The activities mentioned by Carden-Jessen are all represented in the June activity calendar at Twin Pines. Families are invited to dis-

cover nature at Twin Pines’ Family Fishing Day, Saturday, June 7, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Guests will “catch and release” fish at the pond and take part in other activities such as printing fish t-shirts, creative hats, contests, and aquatic critter studies. Hot dogs and lemonade will be served for lunch. For this event only, no Missouri fishing license is required. Reservations are also not needed for this event.

Missouri Medicaid cuts in 2005 left thousands of low-income Missourians without access to proper dental care which contributed to poor oral health, repeated abscesses, and debilitating pain. Since 2007 GSCC has offered dental extractions by appointment only for hundreds of patients who fell into this service gap and could not afford a trip to a dental office.

will likely have a disproportionate impact on the bills of co-op consumer-members because, for a variety of historical reasons including the Fuel Use Act, co-ops rely more heavily on coal than the broader utility sector. Sixty percent of co-op power sales go to residential members, and the average income of co-op served households is nearly $9,000 below the U.S. average. As co-op owners, these consumers will foot the bill for any regulation that increases power costs.” All Missouri residents are encouraged to write in to their local representatives and voice their opinions. Cards are available at Howell-Oregon Electric for those that wish to voice their opposition about these forced regulations. What the co-op has done for you Dan Singletary, CEO/General Manager of Howell-Oregon Electric Co-op, Inc., gave a brief overview of the co-ops’ year. “As of right now, there is no planned rate increase. We have worked hard to stabilize our cost and our rates. It takes a lot of effort and it starts with Associated Electric Cooperative. They are our power plant.” Singletary went on to explain, “Our cost of power is our one biggest expense to our members. We are always working for our members.” Singletary added that this past winter was one of the worst. “Our members felt the pinch. We had three plus months of cold, cold temperatures and our member felt it in their pocketbooks. We know this. We as cooperatives thought, what can we do to soften this?” Singletary related how members would call saying that they can’t pay all of their bill right now. “We worked with them so they could pay over several months. We don’t have to do this, but we are a co-op, these are our people, we will take care of them.”

May is Military Appreciation Month

May marks National Military Appreciation Month when events are organized to honor our brave men and women in uniform and the sacrifices they make defending our freedoms at home and abroad. Across our country, civic groups and average American citizens are joining together to host everything from appreciation dinners to parades and even a fishing tournament to let our military members know we honor their service. In the House of Representatives, I am working to ensure our federal government keeps its promises to members of the military. Caring for our veterans should be a top priority in Washington. The Veterans Administration (VA) has thousands of doctors, nurses and public servants who work hard to give military members the best healthcare we can offer. But, too often, the VA system fails those it was created to help. An outrageous backlog at the VA has caused veterans to wait months for answers on disability claims. Unfortunately, the same is true of VA medical services where wait lists for some critical services are extremely long. In some tragic instances, veterans have passed away waiting for healthcare services from the VA. This is unacceptable. This month, the House of Representatives took action to provide critical funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs. In addition to funding, the House has acted to make systemic changes in the VA to improve access to healthcare services for our veterans. The legislation provides specific funding for medical care, mental health services, traumatic brain injury treatment for our most seriously wounded American heroes, homeless services and job training to ensure that the transition back to civilian life is successful for our veterans. Additionally, the House is working to modernize the VA with a new electronic health record system and an updated paperless claims processing system. These updates are the first step toward ending the unacceptable backlog of VA disability and medical claims. Another way that Congress can improve access to care for our veterans is through the Patient-Centered Community Care program that allows the VA to contract with local healthcare providers. In our Eighth Congressional District there are veterans who are forced to travel one hundred miles to the closest VA clinic or hospital. Many veterans have injuries or are elderly. Extended travel often times only adds to veterans’ frustrations. The Patient-Centered Community Care program is relatively new and not yet widely available. I am working to grow the program and make healthcare options more accessible for our veterans. Like other Americans, the House of Representatives is committed to honoring members of the military during Military Appreciation Month. While people across the country are holding special events for our service members, I have been working in the House of Representatives to keep the promises made to our veterans and honor their service to our nation. We must always honor the service and sacrifices of our military members.

Making Appropriate Decisions

This final week of session for the 97th General Assembly has been a busy one. House Joint Resolution 90 has been truly agreed to and finally passed and now faces voter approval. This proposed constitutional amendment provides more flexibility for citizens to exercise their right to vote by establishing an early voting period. HJR 90 will permit voting in person or by mail for six business days prior to and including the Wednesday before the election day. Local governments will not have to pay for the costs associated with early voting. The passage of House Bill 1307 has drawn much attention to Missouri Legislature since we are only the third state to pass legislation that will extend the waiting time for women seeking an abortion, in certain circumstances, from 24 hours to 72 hours. Current law states that circumstances deemed to be medical emergencies are exempt from the 24-hour required waiting period. This measure includes that medical exemption. This legislation does contain a clause that would leave the mandated waiting period at 24 hours, should there be court proceedings that may temporarily make the law invalid. Missouri now joins Utah and South Dakota as the only states in the nation to mandate a 72-hour waiting period for abortions. I would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and sympathy in regard to the passing of my mother, Anna Cunningham who passed away Tuesday night. She was 88 years old and leaves behind her husband Charles. They celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary in November. Capitol Guests This week we had many school children come visit us. Eighth graders from Hartville and Licking came by, along with, Shook Elementary School students from Marshfield, which included my granddaughter, Baylee Cunningham. As always, I appreciate it when groups from around Missouri and from our community back home come to visit me at the Capitol. 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.

U.S. Court orders Howell County recorder to meet MV man at home Brad Glass, of Mountain View, has a disability that impacts his ability to travel, so he is unable to comply with Missouri’s arbitrary statutory requirement that marriage license applicants appear in person before a Recorder of Deeds. Today, the Howell County Recorder of Deeds has been ordered by a United States District Court judge to meet Glass at his home and issue him a marriage license. Glass, who is represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri, and his fiancé have been engaged since December 2012 and are eager to get married as soon as possible. Although the ACLU has successfully chal-

lenged this in-presence requirement on behalf of fiancés of prisoners, this is the first time the ACLU is also claiming a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. “A bill that recently passed the legislature would eliminate the in-presence requirement for prisoners,” says Jeffrey A. Mittman, executive director of the ACLU of Missouri. “We urged lawmakers to fix this problem for persons with disabilities and those serving in the military who face the same barrier to getting married in Missouri.” “It is a shame that the Missouri legislature thinks that individuals with disabilities do not deserve the same oppor-

tunity to marry that prisoners will enjoy,” said Tony Rothert, legal director of the ACLU of Missouri. “The legislature has an opportunity to eliminate a real barrier to the right to marry, but decided to keep the barrier in place for just people with disabilities. It is not too late for the legislature to send an inclusive bill to the Governor.” The ACLU of Missouri is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization dedicated to defending and expanding the constitutional rights and civil liberties of all Missourians guaranteed by the U.S. and Missouri Constitutions, and is an affiliate of the national ACLU.

To the Senior Class from a ‘Crazy Pastor’ by Pastor Brian Ingalls Mtn. View Christian Church Thirteen years ago when you got home from your first day of kindergarten, most of us parents picked you up and asked, “How was your first day of school?” A lot has happened since then. You tried to make good grades, you excelled in sports, in music, in art, or maybe in science. It’s really amazing the talents you have developed. This past week I picked up my daughter from school and this time my question was, “How was your last day at school?” You have reached the last day, and just like that first day, we are excited for you and proud of you as we cheer for your success in life. Did you know God cares about your success, too? The Bible says “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Knowledge can help you achieve the desires of your heart, of course, but God can do things no one else can. He has ultimate control over our success or failure. I don’t know if you believe that or not. The Bible predicted “scoffers” would come in the last days and they’re here. People will make fun of you for believing in Jesus. Religion is old-fashioned. We are evolving past it they say. Bill Mahr says religion is the source of all our problems, and Bill Nye seems to

think you can’t be a scientist or help the human race advance if you believe God created everything. They can sound convincing, but that road doesn’t end well. The Bible talks about Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but it’s worth noting that it should have been Abraham, Isaac, and Esau. Esau was the oldest son and should have been the next in line. His father loved him, wanted to pass everything down to him, but Esau just didn’t care. He only cared about the here and now, and agreed to sell his birthright to his brother. The Bible says, he “despised” his birthright. That decision destroyed his future. That’s why we remember Abraham, Isaac, and his younger brother Jacob instead of Abraham, Isaac, and Esau. You’ve heard people say God has a plan for your life, but you don’t have to care either. The world will tell you not to worry about it. The world cares more about the here and now, but I believe if you go down that road, like Esau, you’ll miss out. So here are three old fashioned things to hang on to no matter what the world says: First, Jesus is the way. I think it’s pretty cool that in 2014 no one is arguing that life came from the Nile river anymore, or that some big fat guy is holding the earth on his shoulders. All of those ancient ideas have come and gone except one, Jesus. He’s the real deal.

In Genesis, the story starts with the earth covered by darkness and the first thing God says is “let there be light.” Then he went to work making things better. Jesus does the same thing today in people and in the world. He makes marriages better. He gives hope when there isn’t any. He gives people strength and teaches us to care for the less fortunate. Jesus puts light in the darkness. In fact, just this year sociologist Robert Woodberry finished 14 years of painstaking research and statistical analysis, and concluded something amazing. He found that “Areas where Protestant missionaries had a significant presence in the past are on average more economically developed today, with comparatively better health, lower infant mortality, lower corruption, greater literacy, higher educational attainment (especially for women) and more robust membership in nongovernmental associations.” In other words, everywhere that Jesus went, the world got better. God put light in the darkness. He always does because he is the way. Second, Jesus is the truth. You might be surprised at this but peer pressure doesn’t end with high school. There will always be people who try to make you feel stupid if you don’t go along with them. In 1 Peter 4:4, the Bible says the world will be “surprised that you do not join them in their reck-

less, wild living.” It says they will “heap abuse on you.” As you know from experience, it’s easier just to go along with everyone else. My son is a biology major in college and just this past semester his professor showed everyone a scale and asked the students where they thought they would fit on it. It was a scale of scientific beliefs with people who believed in a flat earth on one end, and people who believed in “atheistic evolution” on the other. On the scale, the people who believed in the Bible were close to the flatearthers. The inference was clear. If you believe Jesus made everything, you must not be all that smart. The peer pressure of the world wants you to feel ashamed of believing in God, but there are actually a great many scientists and academics who are not atheists at all but still believe in God and in Jesus and even in the Bible. Raymond Damadian one of two men who developed MRI technology is a Bible believing Christian. John Sanford who pioneered Gene Therapy is a leading geneticist who also believes God created the world in just six days. Dr. Daniel Amen, a worldrenown neuroscientist also believes in Jesus. The list of leading scientists that believe in Jesus is a long list. They believe Jesus is the truth. You can too. Don’t let anyone pressure you otherwise. Finally, Jesus is the Life. He

puts light in our darkness too. That’s what happens when we make a decision in our heart and mind to belong to Him. The Bible says things like believe and be baptized. After all, getting baptized always meant belonging to something brand new from that moment on. It’s the sort of thing we do on the outside because on the inside, we’ve made the decision that we want Jesus to be in our life. There’s no better way to live. Believers in Jesus were the driving force behind putting an end to slavery. They still fight against human trafficking. They have been the driving force in building hospitals and orphanages and feeding programs and soup kitchens and disaster relief organizations and even drug addiction programs. God has used people who believe in Him, to do great things. He created you for a reason, for a purpose, with all of your talents, hopes, and dreams. The world wants to make you feel ashamed for trusting in Jesus but the Bible says the opposite will happen. “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame,” it says. If you want to have a great life, follow Jesus. It’s up to you. We can go with the crowd, or we can grab hold of something old fashioned, but powerful and true: Jesus. He’s the way, the truth, and the life. Since I hope you have an awesome, successful, incredible life, I figured you should know.

How to Help Seniors with their Computer Issues from Far Away

Dear Savvy Senior, Are there any computer software products that you know of that will let me help my parents with their computer issues from afar? They are in their seventies and frequently call me with their computer questions and problems, but I live across town and don’t always have time to get in the car and drive over to help them. What’s available that can help us? Weary Son Dear Weary, Helping an elder loved with their computer questions or problems over the phone can be frustrating and difficult. Fortunately, there are a number of resources available today that offer remote access software that can easily help you assist your parents with their computer issues from afar. One of the best is TeamViewer, which is completely free to use and works with Windows and Macintosh computers. To get started, you and your parents will need to go to and install their free software on each of your computers. How-to videos are available on their site to help with the installation. Once installed – and with their permission – you will be able to access your parent’s computer right from your own computer wherever you are. Both machines must have broadband Internet for this to work. This software will give you the ability to actually see what’s

American Red Cross to hold blood drive in West Plains The American Red Cross encourages all eligible donors to choose their day to help save lives by giving blood in honor of World Blood Donor Day. Every year, on June 14, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day. The occasion raises awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products, and thanks voluntary blood donors for their lifesaving gifts of blood. “World Blood Donor Day comes at a very important time each year,” said Scott Caswell, CEO, Greater Ozarks-Arkansas Blood Services Region. “Summer can be a challenging time for blood donations, with fewer donors available to donate blood due to busy summer schedules. World Blood Donor Day gives us an opportunity to highlight the need for blood during the summer months and year-round.” World Blood Donor Day occurs on day 21 of the Red Cross 100 Days of Summer. 100 Days of Hope. campaign. Caswell added that it’s a per-

fect time for donors to help save lives and boost the blood supply for patients in need. Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in Missouri), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

The Standard News appearing on your parent’s computer screen, and will let you remotely take charge of their computer so you can show them how to do something, or you can do it for them while they watch. Almost anything can be done remotely with this software. You can even keep a live video chat open at the same time you’re helping them. If your interested in shopping around, some other free remote access programs worth a look include Chrome Remote Desktop (go to and type in “Chrome Remote Desktop” in the “Search the store” box to find it), and SkyFex (, which works only with Windows. Skype also has a screen share feature (see features/screen-sharing) that lets you share your screen and video chat at the same time, but you can’t actually take control of the other person’s computer. You can only show them what they should be doing by demonstrating it on your own desktop. Professional Tech Support If your parents need more tech support than you are able to manage, another option to consider is to sign them up with a tech support company like Geek Squad (, 800433-5778), which also offers remote access capabilities to help your parents with almost any computer issue. Whenever they would need assistance, they could call the Geek Squad toll free number anytime, 24 hours a day, or log in to their website. A Geek Squad representative would then help them initiate a remote access session, so they could remotely show them how to do something, or make repairs or adjustments to their computer. Once the call is completed, the remote control access would be disconnected from your parent’s computer. In addition to the remote access help, Geek Squad tech support also offers free anti-virus software, they cover up to three computers (or other devices), and provide unlimited phone and in-person tech support at any Best Buy store.

Annual OMC Superhero Fun Run draws 652 participants Event raises $10,000 for local cancer patients A total of 652 individuals participated in the Ozarks Medical Center Superhero Fun Run, raising approximately $10,000, which will go to help OMC patients who are in need and undergoing cancer treatment. The annual race included a 5K, 10K and 1.5 mile events and was held April 26 at the OMC Shaw Medical Building. This year included a superhero theme. “Everyone needs a hero but cancer patients need superheroes and we can’t thank the community enough for their involvement in the Fun Run and being superheroes for our patients,” said Ward Franz, OMC Foundation Executive Director. “We had an outstanding turnout. Because of the phenomenal support for this event, we will be able to make a big impact in the lives of those who might otherwise be unable to afford to pay for gasoline to

get to treatment or buy medication to help them fight their cancer.” Franz said in addition to the superhero theme, new to this year’s event was a 10K distance, chip timing for the 5K and 10K, a race expo and superhero sponsors. Awards were given to the top five male and female finishers in the 5K and 10K, as well as the top three finishers in each age category. In addition, four spirit awards were given. Winning the team spirit award was the Learning Tree, the OMC Department spirit award went to the OMC Cancer Treatment Center, the individual adult award to Candice Biggers-Allen and the youth award to Kaleb West.

2014 spring turkey harvest up for third year in a row Harvest numbers reflect favorable weather and improved turkey production Hunters posted the third spring turkey harvest increase in a row, bettering last year’s number by more than 1,000 birds. Hunters checked 43,273 turkeys during Missouri’s regular spring turkey season April 21 through May 11. Top harvest counties were Texas with 938 birds checked, Franklin with 921, and Laclede with 736.

Hunters age 6 through 15 checked 4,332 turkeys during the youth season April 12 and 13, bringing the 2014 spring harvest total to 47,605. That is the third consecutive increase since 2011, when the combined youth and regular season harvest was 42,226. Favorable weather throughout much of this year’s spring turkey season

helped hunters, according to Resource Scientist Jason Isabelle with the Missouri Department of Conservation. He says this year’s harvest was also affected by improvements in turkey production. “Prior to 2011, the state’s turkey population had struggled through four consecutive years of poor hatches,” says Isabelle. “The

improved hatches of 2011 and 2012 resulted in an increase in the number of adult gobblers available for hunters this spring.” County-by-county spring turkey harvest totals are available at node/263. The Conservation Department recorded seven firearms-related spring turkey hunting incidents during the

MO squirrel, black bass seasons open May 24 Two of Missouri’s most popular seasons open on the Memorial Day weekend Memorial Day is an even bigger deal for hunters and anglers than it is for other Missourians. That is the weekend when squirrel season opens and anglers can keep legalsized black bass in most southern Missouri streams. Missouri’s squirrel and black bass seasons open on the same day, the fourth Saturday in May, each year. To take full advantage of these seasons, it helps to be familiar with the regulations for each. Squirrels Squirrel hunting regulations remain unchanged from last year, with a daily limit of 10 and a possession limit of 20 fox or gray squirrels in the aggregate. “In the aggregate” means you can take any combination of fox and gray squirrels, so long as you do not exceed 10 squirrels in one day. If you bag a daily limit two days in a row, you have a possession limit of 20 squirrels. After that, you must eat or give away some squirrels before going hunting again in order to stay within the possession limit. Hunters can pursue squirrels from May 24 through Feb.

15, 2015, with rifles, shotguns, archery equipment, or atlatls. Summer foliage makes rifle shots more difficult than in late fall and winter, when leaves no longer obscure a shooter’s view. As a result, shotguns are the preferred method for many hunters during the early part of the season. Hunters also can take squirrels with cage-type traps, as long as they label traps with their full name and address. Squirrel traps also must have openings measuring 144 square inches or less, for instance, 12 inches by 12 inches. Hunters must attend their traps daily. The same regulations apply to rabbits and groundhogs during their respective seasons. Black Bass The bass catch-and-keep season in southern Missouri streams applies to largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass. Anglers may catch these species legally all year, anywhere in the state. They may keep legal-sized bass caught from impoundments all year long, statewide. However, from March 1 through the Friday before the fourth Saturday in

May, you may only keep black bass caught in streams if you are: - On the Mississippi River - North of the south bank of the Missouri River - In that portion of southeast Missouri south and east of Cape Girardeau following Highways 74 and 25, U.S. Highways 60, 67, and 160 and the west bank of the Little Black River to the Arkansas state line, or - On the St. Francis River downstream from Wappapello Dam In the rest of the state, blackbass fishing is strictly catchand-release from March 1 until the fourth Saturday in May. In most of the state’s waters, the daily limit on black bass is six, with a possession limit of 12. Black bass taken from streams must be at least 12 inches long in most areas. There is no statewide length limit on bass taken from impoundments. However, special length and daily limits apply on many lakes and streams. To ensure that you keep only legal bass, you must check for special regulations on the waters you intend to fish. You can

find these posted at areas with special regulations and in the 2014 Summary of Missouri Fishing Regulations, which is available from fishing permit vendors. An abundance of stream accesses maintained by the Missouri Department of Conservation statewide makes it easy to combine float-fishing and squirrel hunting. It is important to remember, however, that a hunting permit does not give you the right to trespass on private property bordering streams. The best places for this dual sport are where streams run through conservation areas or national forest land. To find such places, use, the searchable Conservation Atlas database.

regular season and one during the youth season. Two of the incidents in the regular season were fatal. Five of the seven incidents, including one of the fatalities, involved shooters who mistook other hunters for turkeys. Missouri’s safest spring turkey season was last year, when the Conservation Department recorded only one incident, which was nonfatal. The worst was 1986, with 31 reported incidents and two fatalities. In the 10 years from 1985 through 1994, the Conservation Department recorded an average of 17.3 spring turkey hunting incidents per year. The 10-year average from 2005 through 2014 was 4.8 per year. Fatal incidents averaged .6 per year during both 10-year periods. Conservation Department Hunter Education Coordinator Kyle Lairmore says these statistics demonstrate the importance of hunter education in preventing hunting injuries. “Since the inception of hunter education training, which became mandatory in

1987, more than 1 million Missourians have received formal firearms and safety training,” says Lairmore. “They make up a larger percentage of the hunting public every year, and that increase has been paralleled by a more than five-fold decrease in spring turkey hunting incidents. A season like the one we just had reminds us that we still have work to do, but it’s important to remember how far we have come.” Lairmore said volunteer hunter-education instructors and Conservation Department employees are responsible for dramatic gains in hunting safety over the past 27 years. Simply put, he says, “They save lives.” The Conservation Department’s First Turkey Program lets turkey hunters commemorate their first turkey kill with a certificate suitable for framing. You can even add a photo of the proud hunter with his or her bird. To create a firstturkey certificate, visit The same site has forms for a youth’s first deer, as well as first deer/turkey certificates for adults.
