Convicted sex offender relocates to community, fails to register

A Mountain View man was arrested and charged with failure to register as a sex offender on Tuesday, June 3, 2014. According to court documents. Aaron C h a r l e s Nazarian, 36 of Mountain Aaron C. View, MO, Nazarian was arrested Jackson St. on a Shannon Mtn. View County Warrant for failure to register as a sex offender. The original charge stemmed from an incident which occurred on March 16, 1995. Nazarian was charged with 1st degree child molestation in Birch Tree, MO. The incident involved a 7-year-old female. Nazarian will appear before the Shannon County Court on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. in Eminence, MO, for arraignment. Along with the most current charge, Nazarian plead guilty to a May 6, 2009 charge of being a sex offender present/ loitering within 500 feet of a school building, grounds or conveyance to transport students. He was sentenced to two years unsupervised probation which began March 29, 2010. In July of 1995, Nazarian plead guilty to a charge of resisting/interfering with arrest, detention or stop. The charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations, and each defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

3 new positive Rabies cases Three additional confirmed rabies cases have been reported to the Howell County Health Department by the Missouri State Public Health Lab in Jefferson City. The cases all involved rabid skunks with 2 cases approximately 4 miles Northeast of South Fork and 1 case approximately 1 mile West of Brandsville. In each case, the rabid skunks exposed a dog that was not current on its rabies vaccinations. Since the dogs were unvaccinated, it was required that they be euthanized due to their exposure to a rabid animal. Justin Frazier, Environmental Public Health Supervisor with the Howell County Health Department said, “This is a very unfortunate situation in which family pets had to be euthanized due to rabies exposure. It is very important for people to protect themselves against rabies by not handling any pet that has been exposed to a wild animal until that animal can be tested to see if it is carrying the rabies virus.” Frazier added, “It is never enjoyable to have to recommend that someone receive a series of rabies shots or to have to euthanize their family pets. Unfortunately, rabies See Rabies on Page 5

Shawn Lewis Tucker, 30, 1114 Bluegrass Lane, West Plains, was arrested by Sgt.

When Thompson told her he had gotten word about illegal drugs on the premises, she denied the allegation and allowed him to come inside the mobile home, Thompson said. Asked whether anyone else was there, the woman said there was not, and went on to say that her boyfriend, Tucker, was not home, according to the police report. Thompson said the female subject became nervous and started to cry after again being asked whether there was anything illegal on the property. Thompson said she told him, “there were some hydros [hydrocodone] in the bedroom dresser drawer for which she didn’t have a prescription.” Based on that admission, Thompson said he asked for consent to search the residence and went into a bedroom,

Superintendent Bill Black announced today that the preservation work on Alley Mill has been progressing well and is ahead of schedule. If there are no unforeseen delays in the next couple of weeks, Ozark National Scenic Riverways tentatively plans to open Alley Mill on weekends in July and daily from August 1-17. The mill will be closed again beginning August 18 to allow for the completion of the accessible walkway into the mill. Visitor safety is the primary reason for closing the mill and nearby lawn while work is ongoing. During periods of work activity, visitors can still cross the bridge and walk the trail around Alley Spring. Rangers are stationed on the grounds near the mill to greet visitors and answer questions. The Alley Spring General Store and Storys Creek School are also open daily throughout the summer. The input and support of the Shannon County Commission, Eminence Chamber of Commerce, and State Representative Jeff Pogue have been greatly valued during See Alley on Page 5

Rotary 14th Annual Golf Tourney held The 14th annual Rotary Club golf tournament, an 18hole, three-person scramble event, took place Saturday, June 7, at the Dane Glass Municipal Golf Course, with 43 teams involved this year. The teams of three were broken down into four flights: “Championship” flight, “A” flight, “B” flight and “C” flight, with the top three in each awarded cash prizes. First place won $300, second place $150 and third place $90.


Team members (some local and some of whom travelled to town from areas such as Springfield, Branson and St. Louis) went out in two sessions, with one beginning that morning and the other in the afternoon. Cash prizes of $30 were given to individuals who landed balls closest to the hole per session on each of the course’s par-3 holes, with the top two advancing to the million-dollar shoot-out (no one won that event this year). In

each session, a man and woman each won $30 for the longest drive on the ninth hole. In the Championship flight, the team of Huff, Murr and Midyet placed first; Butnett, Herman and Strong second; and Brow, Taylor and Taylor third. In the “A” flight, the team of Yarber, Yarber and Chambers finished first; Haase, Pham and Juresmiecz second; and Lucas, Pruett and Rich third. In “B” flight, Chambers, Chambers and Wood came in first; Davis, Davis and Waggoner second; and Clark Kelly and Lind third. In the “C” flight, the team of Kramer, Reed and Smotherman placed first; Nichols, Haney and Weurnsing second; and Daniels, Quinn and Quinn third. Landing closest to the hole in the morning session were Kile Wake on the second hole, Jery Beltz on the fourth hole, Ron Pruett on the 12th hole and Aaron Light on the 14th hole. Tyler Newton and Pam Smith scored the longest drives in that session. Hitting closest to the hole in the afternoon session were Buddy Siebert on the second hole, Ben Kuenzel on the fourth hole, Denise Bohm on the 12th hole and Zack Dotson on the Mike McAfee tees off during the Rotary Club of 14th hole. Doyle Murr and

Denise Bohm had the longest drives for the session. Total funds raised by the tournament have yet to be figured.

Rotary Club officials said the lion’s share of the proceeds are slated for scholarships at Mtn. View-Birch Tree Liberty High

School, and extended appreciation to the contestants who played in the tournament and the golf course for hosting it.

Riverways Reflections

by Superintendent Bill Black Summer is upon us, and the park and river are looking good and ready for visitors. I want to start off with a quick update on the Draft General Management Plan (GMP). As most of you probably recall the Draft GMP presented three “action” alternatives as possibilities for future management, as well as a “no action” alternative which described the current management conditions. Development and comparison of management alternatives is at the core of the general management plan process and is a requirement of the National Environmental Policy Act. As a part of that process, public comments were solicited and we’ve spent the last couple of months reviewing those comments. Currently, we are considering and preparing responses to “concern statements”, which summarize issues that were raised in the public comments. This will help us determine where we need to make adjustments to the preferred alternative as we work toward public release of a final GMP later in 2014. I’ve been out and about in the park the last couple of weeks, meeting and talking to folks with interests and concerns related to Ozark National Scenic Riverways. From the appearance of our local campgrounds and concession operations, the summer season is off to a great start. All campgrounds and backcountry areas throughout the Riverways were moderately busy over the Memorial Day weekend. We were fortunate this year that there was no spring flooding, which often causes damage or closure of park facilities. Park staff and our volunteers are working hard throughout the Riverways, maintaining the campgrounds and trails, assisting visitors in a variety of ways, completing special projects like the Alley Mill preservation, and preparing special events and programs for visitor enjoyment. I’m often asked how many people work in the park, and that varies from season to season and year to year, depending on funding levels. Currently, we have 58 permanent full-time employees, 11 permanent subject-to-fur-

lough employees, and 47 temporary employees. I mentioned the Alley Mill preservation work, and I’m happy to report that things are going well with that project. After attending a recent Chamber of Commerce meeting and listening to concerns about the mill closure, we looked at our project schedule and realized we are making good progress. If we don’t run into any unforeseen delays in the next couple of weeks, we are tentatively planning to open Alley Mill on weekends in July, and then daily from August 1-17. It will be closed again after that to allow for the completion of the accessible walkway into the mill. Visitor safety is the primary reason for closing the mill and nearby lawn while work is ongoing. In another one of my recent meetings, I was asked whether or not the federal government pays any “taxes” to the local communities for public land in the area. It seems quite a few folks have the impression that the counties don’t receive any income from those lands. In fact, counties receive a Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) for federal land. The PILT Act was passed in 1976, in recognition that the inability of local governments to collect property taxes on federally-owned land can create a financial impact. The formula for calculating the annual PILT payments is based on several factors, including county population, the amount of federal land within the county, and annual inflationary adjustments using the Consumer Price Index. Information about the PILT Act can be found at You can find specific information about the number of acres that are subject to the PILT Act in each county and the amounts of the annual PILT payments. Using this information, we were able to estimate the amount of PILT funding that was paid to local counties on behalf of the National Park Service in 2013. These amounts were approximately: $10,000 for Carter County; $2,300 for Dent County; $42,500 for Shannon County; and $950 for Texas County. For more information about upcoming activities, such as updated information on the opening of Alley Mill or the special events planned for the 50th anniversary of Ozark National Scenic Riverways, call park headquarters at (573)323-4236, visit the park website at or visit our Facebook page for regular updates. Be safe and enjoy your park!

Celebrating Victories of a Successful Legislative Session This week I would like to celebrate four pieces of legislation that were passed and now await the governor’s signature. For me, this time of year is one of the best as a legislator. Once the governor signs laws and they take effect, we can begin to see the real fruits of our labor in Jefferson City. Senate Bill 492 is beneficial legislation that has the ability to make higher education institutions more efficient and make it more attainable to meet state expectations. With 30 other states using performance funding, our state could use a funding model that puts the responsibility of success in the hands of the schools. Once the governor signs this bill, colleges will work with the Department of Higher Education to develop five goals that will, in essence, reward the higher educational institutions for good performance. Three of those goals must be related to graduation and retention rates, as well as job placement in a field appropriate for a graduates’ degree level. The legislation would apply only in years the state can afford to increase higher education funding and would expire in 2016. There are 13 colleges and universities that will be affected and will implement the performance standards. With such high academic standards obtained by the West Plains and Springfield campuses belonging to Missouri State University, I’m confident these exceptional higher education institutions will benefit from this new funding model. Unemployment fraud was also addressed this session. Senate Bill 510 is waiting on the governor’s signature. This legislation would keep employees who are fired for workplace infractions, such as stealing and doing drugs, from receiving unemployment insurance benefits. It also redefines “misconduct” for which an employee may be disqualified from unemployment benefits. Currently, a deliberate violation of the employer’s rules constitutes misconduct. Under the measure, a violation of an employer’s rule is misconduct unless the employee demonstrates that he or she did not know and could not reasonably know the requirement, the rule is unlawful, or it is not consistently enforced. As a former small business owner, I can tell you that this legislation will help make things much more clear for business owners and other professionals, as it specifically defines what misconduct is. Misconduct includes a violation of a no-call, no-show policy; missing work regularly; being late; and unapproved absences following a written warning. For eight years, legislators, attorneys, judges and advocates worked long and hard to help revamp the state’s aged criminal code. It was last revised in 1979, but thanks to the dedicated work of many this session, the new criminal code, found in Senate Bill 491, was passed. This legislation is one of the biggest victories of this session. It renames some crimes, and renumbers or consolidates other crimes. And despite the Legislature correcting two drafting errors that the governor pointed out, he still refused to sign this important piece of legislation. However, this inaction still allowed the bill to lapse into law. The revised criminal code will not take effect until 2017, allowing for two legislative sessions to work out any corrections needed to be made. To further safeguard against potential errors, the Missouri Supreme Court Standing Committee on Criminal Procedure is slated to review the bill. The very first piece of legislation that was passed and signed by the governor this year was Senate Bill 668, a bill that mandates health insurance companies to pay the same amount toward both oral and intravenous chemotherapy medications. With this much-needed change, we can eliminate a financial barrier and put the emphasis on access to quality care. Oral chemotherapy allows patients the ability to continue to work and contribute to the economy because they are self-administered, and often have fewer side effects. More than 25 percent of the 400 chemotherapy drugs currently in the developmental pipeline are oral therapies. However, IV treatments, which are covered as a medical benefit, require a flat co-payment, while oral therapies are covered as a pharmacy benefit. Patients can be charged up to 50 percent of the costs of these drugs, which can mean hundreds or thousands outof-pocket dollars each month, even if the oral therapy is the only treatment available for their cancer. Senate Bill 668 takes one worry away from families who are faced with coping with an illness, possibly lost wages, and mounting medical bills. I am pleased to say this measure passed during my time in the Missouri Senate.

Eighth District Tourism Alive and Well

With the summer season now upon us many families are enjoying the outdoors. We are blessed to have tremendous recreation opportunities in the Eighth Congressional District that are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. As you think about planning a family vacation or weekend outing, I would encourage you to consider some of the local businesses and parks we have right here in South Central and Southeast Missouri. This week I spent time visiting tourist attractions in our region. Tourism in Missouri provides us with new adventures close to home, but it also helps fuel our state’s economy. The tourism industry provides more than 280,000 tourism-related jobs and generates nearly $11 billion in tourism-related spending. Visitors to our state spend money on lodging and at restaurants, outdoor recreation facilities, gas stations and small retail businesses. These dollars mean jobs for our friends and neighbors, and are important tax revenues for our municipal and county governments. During my travels this week visiting tourism sites in our Eighth Congressional District, I met great people who work diligently to show visitors Missouri hospitality. In Ste. Genevieve, I stepped back in time while visiting historic attractions in the 18th century French colony. Ste. Genevieve is home to internationally recognized historic homes, and a beautiful downtown historic district. I visited an old time pharmacy in Ava where you can still get an ice cream cone for 10 cents. In Sikeston I toured and dined at the original home of the famous ‘Throwed Rolls.’ In rural Ozark County I had a hardy breakfast at Dawt Mill and took in the natural beauty of the North Fork of the White River. In Mansfield I visited the home of Laura Ingalls Wilder and learned about her life experiences which inspired her book, Little House on the Prairie that eventually became a successful television series. In addition to historic sites, I visited our pristine state and national parks and small businesses that rely on the rivers. In Wayne County I visited the Bill Emerson Visitor Center at Lake Wappapello. Further north in Iron County I toured Elephant Rocks State Park where I saw the giant granite boulders that resemble elephants. At Johnson Shut-Ins State Park I saw great places to swim, nice picnic areas and the beautiful Ozark landscape. I spent time on the Current River near Round Spring to learn about the small businesses that provide goods and services to visitors. Along the way I heard from business owners and private citizens who are concerned about new management plans in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways and how these changes will impact their communities. I will continue fighting any efforts to limit access to our federal lands. When you are planning a trip or activity this summer, remember the great local tourist attractions our region has to offer. By staying local this summer you can enjoy less time traveling and know that your dollars are supporting small businesses in our local communities. Whether you like to camp, fish, be on the water or visit unique restaurants and businesses, our Eighth Congressional District has something to offer for everyone.

Gainesville License Office contract up for bid The Missouri Office of Administration is now accepting management contract bids for the Gainesville License Office. Interested individuals and groups must submit their bids to operate the Gainesville License Office by June 27. Prospective bidders may also tour the Gainesville office from 4:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., June 10 to gain perspective on how a license office is operated. In fiscal year 2013, more than 15,800 transactions were conducted at the Gainesville office, generating $52,596 in agent processing fees. The Missouri Department of Revenue oversees 180 license offices which are each operated by independent agents. All of the license offices were put out for bid under the competitive

procurement process in 2009. Contracts were awarded for one year with three one-year renewal options. The move toward a competitive procurement process of the license offices overhauled the way local motor vehicle and driver license offices are awarded and was one of the first actions of Gov. Jay Nixon’s administration. Bids will be evaluated on areas such as expertise of the personnel proposed, methods proposed for performing the services and whether the individual or entity is a not-forprofit, political subdivision, a Missouri Certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) or a Missouri ServiceDisabled Veteran Enterprise.

Edge of Tomorrow

Well, school’s out and summer vacation is finally here, so you know what that means for moviegoers; aliens will probably try more than once to take over or destroy the world! Tom Cruise and Emily Blount join forces to try and prevent that from happening in this week’s film “Edge of Tomorrow.” Cruise stars in the film as Major William Cage, a military PR person who has never seen actual combat. That changes when alien forces attack determined to destroy the world. As Cage is battling the enemy forces he somehow slips into a time loop in which he must repeat the same day over and over again until he makes all the right choices and saves the day. Helping Cage out is his tough, no nonsense sidekick Rita Vrataski (Blount) who helps him realize what’s happening and does her best to get them both through the day, over and over and over again. This is a bit of an odd film to describe. The obvious comparison that immediately comes to mind is “Groundhog Day”, but Bill Murray wasn’t faced with battling spider like aliens as far as I can remember. Anytime a film repeats the same scenes over and over again it can obviously get a little annoying, but for the most part this film does manage to pull it off without completely boring the viewer to death. Although I seem to be in the minority here, I wasn’t really impressed with this overall picture. It’s not terrible by any stretch and it does have some humor and enjoyable action from time to time, but overall it just didn’t really work for me. With the exception of Emily Blount, I didn’t really care for the cast including the supposed superstar Tom Cruise. It seemed to me as if the majority of them were really just phoning it in and by film’s end I’d really just lost interest. It’d be a decent way to kill a couple hours if you’re just looking to beat the heat on a hot summer afternoon, but other than that I’d have to put it in my “wait for dvd” category. 2 out of 5 stars.

Alley this time. The National Park Service strives to support tourism in local communities and recognizes that Alley Mill is a popular tourist destination. The current preservation efforts will allow the mill to be enjoyed for years to come. States Superintendent Black, “We appreciate the patience of our visitors and the local com-

munities while we complete the necessary repairs and upgrades. These efforts will help us ensure that Alley Mill will be preserved for the enjoyment of future generations. We look forward to welcoming visitors to enjoy the improvements at the mill very soon.” For information on Ozark National Scenic Riverways,

The building’s owner, Bob Tackitt of Mtn. View, arrived at the scene and let police officers inside. Officers looked around and “there appeared to be nothing out of place to our knowledge,” Karr reported. Officers had a look at the restaurant’s surveillance camera footage, and pinpointed the time of the windows being broken at 4:57 a.m., according to the report, with Karr happening upon the scene 35 minutes later at 5:32 a.m. “It also appeared that entry was not made into the building as someone or something prevented it,” Karr reported.

Meth “While in the bedroom, I noticed that every time I would get close to the bed, Shawn Tucker’s leg would begin bouncing up and down in a very nervous fashion,” Thompson reported. “I bent down on one knee to look into a ductwork vent, as I could see a plastic baggie inside of the vent.” Thompson said Tucker’s leg continued “bouncing up and down” and Tucker began trying to talk to the sergeant and start conversation. Thompson said he looked under the bed, found a glass methamphetamine pipe, handcuffed Tucker and the female subject and told them they were being detained. “I conducted a further search underneath the bed and located a tin, which had a weighable amount of white crystallized substance consistent with being methamphetamine,” Thompson’s report says. “There were also other baggies inside of this bag that also contained a white crystallized substance consistent with being methamphetamine.” A set of digital scales was found, along with multiple packaging materials, Thompson said. A field test was conducted, and Thompson said the substance he found tested positive as methamphetamine. Tucker and the woman were arrested and taken to the Howell County Sheriff’s Office, where they were interviewed after being read their Miranda Rights. The female subject stated that she was not aware of the drugs or paraphernalia that was underneath the bed, Thompson reported. She said she had done methamphetamine as recently as

There were a total of 16 bags containing white substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine, 7 with a large amount and 9 with residue. The total approximate weight of the bag containing the white substance was 32 grams. Once the scene was cleared, officers returned to the police department where the bags containing the

From Page One at the restaurant, pointed out the spot where contact was made. He could only guess as to what might have been used to break the windows. The police report says the camera footage is of “poor quality and was not able to identify the suspect(s) in the incident.” The breaking of the windows is considered felony second-degree burglary (569.170) by the Mtn. View Police Department, according to the report. It concludes, “This matter is still an open investigation, but is currently suspended.” A police spokesperson said the case is suspended due to lack of leads at this time.

From Page One two-and-a-half weeks ago, suspected Tucker was selling it out of their home and said her suspicion was based on the number of people coming and going from the residence, according to the report. Thompson said Tucker made conflicting statements while being interviewed “and spoke in theoretical terms.” After receiving consent to have a look at Tucker’s cell phone, Thompson said he found multiple text messages between Tucker’s phone and people who are known to deal/use drugs. “I observed several of these texts used common code terminology combined with prices,” Thompson said, leading him to believe Tucker was communicating about drug transactions. Thompson said he also found “a quantity of U.S. currency” in the bedroom at the home. “Both subjects are unemployed and have been for a few months by their own admission,” Thompson reported.

Rabies is a fatal disease, and as such, requires immediate action. Exposed individuals must NOT take a “wait and see” approach, only seeking treatment once symptoms develop. To date in 2014, this is the fifth confirmed case of rabies in Howell County, as well as the 11th rabies case statewide. Howell County ended 2013 with 4 rabies cases reported to the Howell County Health Department, 3 involving skunks and 1 involving a cat. In 2012, Howell County had a total

circumstances, including the possession of methamphetamine, the intent to distribute it, the handgun with no serial number (plus other firearms at the residence) and the fact the female subject has a 4-year-old child who lives at the searched home, Thompson said, “I believe the suspect is a danger to the community due to the inherent dangers associated with the distribution of methamphetamine.” Rizwan Ahad, Howell County assistant prosecuting attorney, filed a probable cause statement in the county’s circuit court, which asks for an arrest warrant to be issued for Tucker on two counts: Class B felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver (methamphetamine) and Class C felony maintaining or keeping a public nuisance (keeping the methamphetamine at the home). A Howell County prosecuting attorney’s office spokesperson said there have been no charges filed against the female subject.

Annually, 7,000 to 8,000 rabid animals are detected in the United States, with more than 90 percent of the cases in wild animals. Rabies is found naturally in Missouri, occurring primarily in bats and skunks, although other animals are also found to be rabid each year, including domestic species such as dogs, cats, horses, and cattle.

How To Make an Online Memorial for a Departed Loved One Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about online memorials? My uncle recently passed away, and some of the family thought it would be neat to create an online memorial to pay tribute to him, and accommodate the many family and friends who are scattered around the country who couldn’t attend his funeral. Grieving Niece Dear Grieving, It’s a great idea! Online memorials have become increasingly popular over the past decade, as millions of people have created them for their departed loved ones as a way to recognize and remember them. Online Memorials? An online memorial is a website created for a deceased person that provides a central location where their family and friends can visit to share stories, fond memories, photographs, comfort one another and grieve. The memorial can remain online for life (or a specific period of time) allowing people to visit and contribute any time in the privacy of their own space. Online memorials started popping up on the Internet in the late 1990s, but were created primarily for people who were well known. But now, these sites are for anyone who wants to pay tribute to their departed family member or friend, and ensure they will be remembered. Content typically posted on an online memorial includes a biography, pictures, stories from family and friends, timelines of key events in their life, along with favorite music and even videos. Another common feature is the acceptance of thoughts or candles offered by visitors to the site who want to send their

The Standard News condolences and support to the grieving party. An online memorial can also direct visitors to the departed person’s favorite charity or cause to make a donation, as an alternative to sending funeral flowers. How To Make One To make an online memorial, you can either create an independent website, or use an established memorial site, which is what most people choose to do. Memorial websites are very easy to create and personalize, and can be done in less than 30 minutes. There are literally dozens of these types of sites on the Internet today. To locate them, do an online search for “Online Memorial Websites.” In the meantime, here are a few good sites to check into. The biggest and most established site in the industry is, which also publishes about 75 percent of the obituaries in North America each year through its newspaper affiliations. Creating an online memorial through this site (see will run you $49 for the first year, plus an annual $19 sponsorship fee to keep it visible. Some other popular sites to check out are, which offers a free barebones option, along with a premium plan that runs $35 per year or $75 for life; and, which runs $49 per year or $99 for permanent display. If you’re on a tight budget consider, which is completely free to use, but requires you to log in through Facebook to get to it. And, which is free if you allow ads to be posted on your uncle’s page, or it costs $50 without ads. Or, if your uncle used Facebook, you can also turn his profile into a memorial for free when you show proof of death. Once his page is memorialized, his sensitive information will be removed and his birthday notifications will stop, but (depending on his privacy settings) it still enables family and friends to post memories and condolences. In addition, you can also request a Look Back video, which is a short video created by Facebook highlighting your uncle’s pictures and most liked status messages.

Time to schedule your annual water well checkup An estimated 13 million American households get their water from private ground water wells, which are not subject to EPA regulations. Private water wells can provide safe, clean water; however, well water may be or become contaminated, leading to illness. It is the responsibility of the well owner to maintain their well and have the water tested on the recommended annual basis in order to ensure their water is safe from harmful contaminants. Just as you check your smoke

detector batteries seasonally, spring is a good season to have an annual water well checkup before the peak water use season begins, according to the National Ground Water Association (NGWA). Why is it a good idea to have my water well checked annually? “An annual checkup by a qualified water well contractor is the best way to ensure problemfree service and quality water,” says Justin Frazier, Environmental Services Supervisor with the

Howell County Health Department. Also, preventative maintenance usually is less costly than emergency maintenance, and good well maintenance — like good car maintenance - can prolong the life of your well and related equipment. NGWA further recommends you test your water whenever there is a change in taste, odor, or appearance, or when the system is serviced. Well owners should check their water more often than annually if:

Animals sounds galore at the Mtn. View Public Library Story Time Animal Sounds - The Mountain View Public Library was buzzing with the sounds of deer and turkey early Wednesday morning. Children were entertained at Story Time by special guest Heath Wood. Wood came to talk to the kids about his love of hunting. Wood demonstrated numerous animal calls that the children might hear while they go hunting in the area. Wood works for the Mountain View Lumber Company as well as for Hunter’s Specialties. A special thank you to Heath Wood from all the children, parents and staff who attended the event. Story Time is every Wednesday at the Mountain View Public Library at 10:00 a.m. During the library’s Summer Reading Program, children can attend cooking and crafting classes on Monday and Wednesday. Call the library at 417-934-1654 for more information on these fun, summertime activities.

Ozarks Fruit & Garden Review June is Vidal Month by Marilyn Odneal Horticulture Adviser Vidal Blanc is a hybrid white wine grape that is well adapted to Missouri, sporting a lineage that includes both winter hardy and disease resistant American grape species as well as high quality European grape species, Vitis vinifera. Vidal Blanc (pronounced vee-dahl blahnc) is absolutely beautiful in the vineyard, with large, shouldered clusters of translucent green-gold berries. The grapes are often used

to make dry to semi-dry wine with a clean fresh citrus aroma with a flavor of apples and lemon. At the Missouri State Fruit Experiment Station, we first tested this variety with other “French Hybrids” in the late 70s early 80s. As of 2011, there are 115 bearing acres of Vidal Blanc in Missouri comprising 7 percent of all varieties grown in the state. I particularly like working with Vidal Blanc grapes in the vineyard. The vines yield large clusters, so some fruit thinning must be done. It is easy to hand

Vidal Shoot - It is hard to believe that these small clusters of flower buds on the shoots of Vidal Blanc grapevine will develop into very large clusters of grape berries. Vidal usually requires fruit thinning so the vines do not over-crop. (Photo provided to the Standard)

harvest Vidal because the clusters are large and they are more resistant to rots than other white wine grapes grown here. Another nice feature that has been observed in our vineyards is that the birds are not as attracted to Vidal Blanc berries as they are some other grape varieties. We can usually get by without putting bird netting on the Vidal rows. It can produce high yields and is definitely a work horse for the industry. Vidal Blanc is used to make a range of wines, including semi-dry to dry, late harvest, ice wines and sparkling. Missouri wineries and the Missouri Wine and Grape Board are featuring this versatile varietal for the entire month of June. During the month of June, Missouri wineries will feature Vidal with wine releases, special events, themed tastings and much more. There are nine wine trails in Missouri wine country. Everyone from wine enthusiasts to those new to the wine scene will have the opportunity to get acquainted with this quintessential Missouri varietal. So, toast to the new summer with a refreshing and fruity glass of Vidal. Cheers!

- There is a change in the taste, odor, or appearance of the water - A problem occurs such as a broken well cap or a new contamination source - Family members or houseguests have recurrent incidents of gastrointestinal illness - An infant is living in the home - There is a need to monitor the efficiency and performance of home water treatment equipment. Schedule your annual water well checkup Wells can provide high-quality drinking water, and about half the U.S. population receives its drinking water from wells. But with well ownership comes the responsibility of keeping the water well in good working order. A check of your well by a qualified water well contractor may include: - A well equipment inspection to assure it’s sanitary and meets local code. - A test of your water for coliform and e-coli bacteria and nitrates, and anything else of local concern. Other typical additional tests are those for iron, manganese, sulfides, and other water constituents that cause problems with plumbing, staining, water appearance, and odor. The Howell County Health Department also recommends that well owners: - Keep hazardous chemicals, such as paint, fertilizer, pesticides, and motor oil far away from your well, and maintain a “clean” zone of at least 50 feet between your well and any kennels and livestock operations. - Maintain proper separation

between your well and buildings, waste systems, and chemical storage areas. - Periodically check the well cover or well cap on top of the casing (well) to ensure it is in good repair and securely attached. Its seal should keep out insects and rodents. - Keep your well records in a safe place. These include the construction report, and annual water well system maintenance and water testing results. Testing Available through Health Department The Howell County Health Department can help county residents perform water tests to ensure the quality of their water supply. An unofficial bacterial analysis of the water supply may be performed by homeowners who wish to test their own wa-

ter with a $10.00 fee assessed upon completion of the test. An official bacterial test can be performed by a member of the Howell County Health Department at a charge of $20.00. Water chemistry tests will check levels of pH, nitrates, sulfides, iron, lead and other possible contaminates and must be performed by officials with the Howell County Health Department for a charge of $20.00. If both bacterial and water chemistry testing are desired, the charge will be $30.00 for the tests. Contact the Howell County Health Department Environmental Services Section at (417) 256-7078 to schedule a water test or for more information regarding water quality and testing services.
