Annual Report Supplement to the Press-News Journal

Lewis County’s Silent Partners Lewis County has 112 Watershed flood control structures as well as hundreds of land treatment structures and farm ponds which all curb water runoff speeds and soil erosion, silently performing their intended purpose on the landscape. These structures get a lot of attention during their construction and until the “newness” wears off. These works of improvement to the county’s infra-structure will remain on the landscape serving their designed purpose, but we as stewards, have to remember to provide the needed care and maintenance to keep them functioning . In Lewis County we have

Watershed Map

four locally elected watershed boards, made up of five Trustees which serve without monetary compensation. Along with their managers, they monitor and care for these 112 Flood control structures. These boards represent the land acreage in each of their respective watersheds and supervise the tax monies collected from property owners in these areas. These tax monies are what the Watershed Boards use to perform maintenance activities to keep the dams in operating condition. The Managers inspect these structures twice per year and after significant storm events to monitor proper functioning and complete an inspection checklist each time. The inspection checklists are compiled and the Board uses this information to plan out the necessary repairs and develop the budget for the next year. The boards have a constant need to cut sprouts off the dams, monitor the condition of grass cover and dam components as well as animal and people concerns. In years, with the generous allotment of rainfall in our area, the boards are challenged more than usual to keep the dams operating. Much debris washes into the pools and can end up plugging the overflow pipes causing water to be backed up and in some cases flowing out the auxiliary spillway before the pipe could be cleared. The frequent water fluctuation in our rivers and streams has encouraged wildlife such as Beavers and Muskrats to relocate to these structures to set up new homes due to the more stable environment. These animals not only

dig new burrows in the dams but plug overflow pipes as well. Thirty two of these structures were built at least 30 years ago, with some of these approaching 45 years of age. One of the major expenses the Boards have been preparing for since the watershed Districts were formed in the 1960’s, is replacing pipes and inlets as they deteriorate. This is an expensive undertaking and the Boards have already started replacing some of these as the needs have arisen in the last five years. In 2011, the Watershed boards from around Missouri have pooled their resources to purchase a robotic camera to inspect the insides of the Principal spillway pipes. This will allow Watershed boards to look for deteriorating pipe concerns and schedule replacements in a timely manner that will be easier to budget for repairs. Maintenance on these dams is easy to over look as many are located in out of the way locations or are taken for granted as long as they are working. Your Watershed Districts in Lewis County are very diligent in monitoring the maintenance on these silent partners. The Boards would appreciate a “heads up” anytime someone notices a concern with any of these lakes as problems can develop quickly even if a normal inspection was recently completed. To alert the Boards of a concern or if you have a question, please contact the Soil and Water Office, 504 S. Washington in Monticello or call 573-767-5276 ext. 3. Even if you do not have a Watershed size structure on your land, a farm pond needs the same type of care to remain functional. With some annual maintenance, expenses can be spread out and the pond can continue to provide years of future benefits and enjoyment.

Highland Softball Field improvement plans Highland High School is planning to complete the softball field located next to the current facility. Vice Principal and Athletic Director Ben Buening said plans are underway to compete the complex to provide an enhanced athletic facility for the Highland campus. Softball is a strong tradition in Lewis County and the surrounding area. Highland Girls Softball won the state championship in 2005. The Lady Cougars have faced many state champion teams including Palmyra. Summer softball in area towns continues to have many players and spectators. Currently both softball and baseball teams use the same field. The secondary field was began several years ago from funds received when the old Ewing school was sold. The secondary field has been used for practices and junior high games. The completion of the field would allow for MSHAA ( Missouri State High School Activities Association ) sanctioned playoff games to be played at the Highland campus. Locations for playoff games are voted on by members of MSHAA and field are judged by playing surface, lighting, fencing, etc., and overall facility. The field will also be used for some community events, tournaments, physical education classes and Art Trek education classes. Plans include installing lights, fencing, a new infield playing surface which will be safer and easier to play on and other improvements. Improvements to the infield will also take less pre-game preparations and drainage problems will decrease.The Lewis County C-1 Board of Education, Highland Booster Club and Friends of Highland Softball will provide funds to complete the project. The field should be completed by August 1. Softball coach Paul Scrifres said the Friends of Highland

Softball are raising funds through donations and events. The group will have a dinner and a show event at Highland on March 30. A spaghetti dinner will be served beginning at 6 p.m., followed by a Lip Sync show. Acts include the Blues Brothers, Soggy Bottom Boys, Elton John, Ike and Tina Turner, Aerosmith and many more. The public is invited for an evening of good food and fun entertainment. Tickets are available at Highland High School, from Highland Softball Players or contact Paul Scifres at (217) 449-7306. Anyone wishing to donate to complete the field can contact Paul Scifres or Highland High School.

Highland High School plans to complete improvements to the softball field by August.

The Wildcats Perform Well In The NAIA Tournament The Culver-Stockton Wildcats have a lot to be proud about this week. The team’s tough work this season paid off in the first two games of the NAIA DI Men’s Championship tournament which began March 13. C-SC (25-8) began their tournament play against Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) (26-6) on Thursday, March 14 and won 91-72 to advance in the tournament. The next game pitted the Wildcats against Concordia (Calif.) (23-11) which brought the Wildcats yet another victory 97-85. Making it all the way to the

quarterfinals, C-SC faced off against Georgetown (Ky.) (26-8) on Saturday, March 16. After a close game, Georgetown advanced, defeating the Wildcats 86-82. Despite their loss in the quarterfinals, C-SC’s Men’s basketball team has made great strides. The Wildcat’s haven’t earned a victory during the NAIA DI Men’s Championship since 1946, making two wins during the tournament all the more incredible.

Canton Library receives computers Ashley Wolf Reporter The Canton Public Library received four computers from the General Mills in Hannibal recently. Susan Lowman, director of the library, said the computers were donated when the company received new computers and did not have a need for the old ones. This is the second time they have received computers from General Mills, with the first donation being about a year ago. Lowman said they try to update technology as often as financially possible. The last time the library had a technology upgrade was the spring of 2011. Four computers were received through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Opportunity Online Hardware Grant. To be eligible for the grant, the library had to be in an area of poverty and also at

risk for outdated technology. Two other computers that will be used for the library catalog and by the staff were funded through the Library Services and Technology Act Automation Grant, Lowman said. The library offers adult computers that anyone 18 and older can use as long as a terms of use agreement is signed. These computers are not filtered. The three children’s computers the library has are filtered for the safety of the children using them. Lowman said if someone is not computer savvy, there always is someone there to assist. The library also offers a beginning computer class on an as needed basis for people that want to learn more about computers and how to use them. The next project the library is looking to complete is purchasing popu-

This large brick house stood south of LaGrange until an explosion from the furnace destroyed it in the 1990s. The home and property have been in the Gnuse and Warning family for many generations. Barbara Warning Bright supplied this photo along with a family story of how Ella Ewing, famous for her height, stayed at the house. Miss Ewing was a friend of Barbara’s grandmother, Vera Mae Gnuse Warning. Two beds had to be put together to accommodate Miss Ewing with an ironing board set at the end of the beds for added length. In the second photo, Vera Mae is shown in an sitting on a car with the house in the background. Notice the beautiful hat she is wearing.


BACKWARD GLANCES From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers 45 Years Ago The Press-News Journal Feb. 29, 1968 Funeral services for Rev. Hugh McCutchan, 82, were held Feb. 23 at the Zion’s Hill Presbyterian Church. He spent 10 years as principal of Sutsien (China) High School. He took a year’s leave in 1919 and received his masters degree from the University of Missouri. He returned to China and spent six years before returning to the United States to care for his parents. He was ordained in 1932 and went back to China to remain until the outbreak of World War II. He served pastorates and did mission work (in the U.S.) until his retirement in 1960 when he moved to Canton to make his home. March 7, 1968 “Ike” Parks, 66, prominent Canton businessman, died after a heart attack Wednesday night, Feb. 28. Mr. Parks came to Canton in 1961 from St. Louis where he had been divisional sales manager for the John Deere Co. He owned and operated the Western Auto Associate Store and the Canton Theatre. He was a most progressive businessman and was active in promoting Canton. He had served as alderman of Canton, vice president of the Chamber of Commerce, vice president of the Kiwanis Club and a member of the Masonic Lodge of Macon. George R. Lee assistant professor of history and political science at Culver Stockton College, will be included in the forthcoming edition of the Royal Blue Book, published in London.

Mrs. John Bertram, 73, died March 5 at Blessing Hospital, Quincy. She married John Bertram in 1915 and they lived in Rutledge until moving to Canton in 1934 where Mr. Bertram operated a farm implement business until retiring. He survives. Word was received Feb. 23 of the death of Lt. Terry M. Bozarth, son of Mr. and Mrs. Max Bozarth of Kettering, Ohio. Lt. Bozarth was killed in action in Vietnam while serving

with the Air Force. He was a grandson of Mrs. H. C. Bozarth of Labelle. 75 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal March 3, 1938 The body of Coxawain Edgar William George Hulsebus, fatally wounded in the bombing of the gunboat, Panay, rests in the last long sleep in Forest Grove Cemetary in his home community. Servicemen of Army and Navy organizations joined in full honors to the dead sailor here Sunday afternoon in a funeral service that drew the largest crowd ever to attend the funeral of a serviceman in Canton. A fair estimate is probably 7,500. Peter Birk, 90, died at his home on Washington Street Monday. Mr. Birk was born in Germany and had lived 60 years in Canton. He was in business here from 1872 to 1920 as wagon and carriage maker, farm implement and hardware dealer. He sold to his son, Fred, following the World War. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ward are moving from the Mary D. McReynolds farm east of Monticello to the Bob Baker farm west of Canton, which they purchased. Mr. Reed of near Gregory will move to the place the Wards are vacating. March 10,1938 Old residents of Canton will regret to hear the death of William H. Hamley, 83, on March 3 in Chicago. Mr. Hamley moved to Canton with his parents in 1869 and lived here for over 45 years. As a young man he assisted his father in the latter’s barbershop. While in Canton, Mr. Hamley was a star baseball player on the home team. The Bank of Lewis County will pay 5 cents to depositors. This makes a total of 75 percent paid to depositors. Work of tearing down the old buildings on the site of the new telephone office are in progress. The Culver Stockton College building on the corner of Fourth and Clark will be remodeled into a first-class hotel, according to announcement of the college board Tuesday.

85 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal March 1, 1928 After being in business since 1904 the Monticello Trust Company has retired from business and the Bank of Monticello, organized this week, has taken over the business. The officers of the bank of Monticello are Henry Hamann, president; J.L. Brightwell, vice president and counsel; W.E. Bragg, cashier; B.L. Anderson, assistant cashier; and Mina Love Piner, bookkeeper. Other men who are connected with the new bank are W.B. McRoberts, J.F. Wallace, A.P. Wiliams, J.T. Leslie and T.I. Johnson. The new company has been capitalized at $30,000 with $10,000 surplus, which is all paid in. One of the oldest residents of this county, who was a pioneer in building the county government, died at his home in Quincy Feb. 23 after making that his home for the past few years. Alexander Campbell Levengood, 84, was a Lewis County justice of the peace for over 20 years. T.E. Primm, 63, a native of Knox County, was found dead about 6 p.m. Wednesday beside and partly under his wagon, a mile and a half south of Labelle.

Lee English of Williamstown, who met with such a disastrous accident last week when a tree fell on him crushing him so badly, died in the Community Hospital at Canton Monday. After an illness of about a week, Mrs. L.D. Patterson died of influenza at her home in LaGrange Monday at the age of 82 years.

H. Yancey of Labelle and Dr. J. H. Wood of Canton. The alternates were J.G. Richmond of Labelle, Mrs. Emma Miller of Canton, Dr. J. C. Brown of Lewistown and Findley Pollock of LaGrange. 95 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal March 1, 1918 The beautiful home of Joseph Wiss was damaged by fire Wednesday afternoon to the extent of about $2,500. Mr. Wiss is the manager of the grain elevator and the home is one of the most palatial Canton boasts. Ambrose Dudley Clow, 88, died at the home of his son, I.J. Clow near Ewing Wednesday. Tuesday morning the home of Millard Brooks was destroyed by fire. He and his brother, both single men, lived together near Nelsonville.

Restored Church will be Press-News Journal Office

Rita Cox Editor The Press-News Journal will locate to their new office at 109 North Fourth Street in LaGrange. The office will be located in the lower portion of the building and the corporation office will be in the upstairs. The door to the Press-News Journal office is on the south side of the lower level of the building. The office is handicapped accessible. The old Presbyterian church building had set empty for over 17 years. Bob Ely, one of the PressNews Journal’s owners, purchased the building in 2011 and contracted Scott Meyer and Jeff Trevathan of River City Restorations of Hannibal to restore the old structure which was built around 1840. The building required a lot of work. Scott Meyer

said, The first phase of the project included structural stabilization of roofing, trusses, and masonry. Window sills, lintels had to be reset and relayed, structural cracks had to be relayed and repointed. The entire frieze, sofit, facia, pilaster capital trim and front gable had to be restored using old photos, and evidence of clues on the building, for example, old paint outlines and pieces of original trim. The original six over three double hung windows had to be restored and reconstructed, including interior trim. The original front door and step systems were reconstructed from historic photos and one remaining two panel door left on site. “All mechanical systems were up graded to code, and the exterior lawn was regraded to eliminate basement water entry. The basement was gutted and

following mold remediation, was turned into ADA accessible offices for the news paper. The main auditorium of the Church was reframed, plastered and painted including restoration of the crown molding and an original ceiling medallion/ vent. The original tongue and groove wide plank pine flooring was saved and patched using new matching flooring that will eventually age with time and sunlight. The first floor also included a half bath and kitchenette. Interior magnetic storms and insulation were added for energy efficiency.” said Meyer. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Project was a certified Substantial Rehabilitation thru the Missouri State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park Service.

Alzheimer’s Association to hold Perspectives on Caregiver Stress program The Alzheimer’s Association-Quincy Area Office will hold a program entitled “Perspectives on Caregiver Stress” from 1-3 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, 2013, at the Western Community Center YMCA, 1400 Mortimer St., Barry.
