Lewistown Park Honors Veterans


Bungeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in LaGrange was still surrounded by water on Monday morning, June 3. Route B was closed for a couple of days but was open on Monday. River levels dropped suddenly on June 2, but the water was expected to rise again towards the end of the week. The Riverhouse Bar in LaGrange was closed, as water surrounded the business. The Kountry Kream Shoppe moved out on Saturday and will reopen as soon as the water recedes to near normal levels. Traffic to the Mark Twain Casino had to be detoured, but the casino remained open. The LaGrange Post Office is still relocated in the Catholic Church on Route C. (Photo by Rita Cox)

BY RITA COX Reporter

Lewistown Park honored veterans and showed patriotism with a display of flags over the Memorial Day weekend from the efforts of Bill Conger and the Lewistown Viking Club. Lifelong Lewistown resident, Bill Conger, initiated the idea that Lewistown needed to have flags in the park to put on display in honor of Lewis County veterans on holidays such as Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Independence Day, Flag Day, etc. Mr. Conger had been a semitruck driver and over his years on the road he had noticed in another town, a display of flags, which he thought was a

beautiful way to honor veterans. Bill purchased the flags, poles and the holders. David Goodwin helped Bill with this project to get the poles and flags ready. They asked the Lewistown Viking Club, of which Goodwin is a member, to assist in the process of setting the holders in concrete in the park. The Vikings dug the holes and set the holders in concrete. Over Memorial Day weekend, 26 American flags, each three foot by five foot, were displayed in the park for the first time. The flags were taken down at night and during bad weather. Plans are for the flags to be displayed several times during the year, including most appropriate holidays and Lewistown Appreciation Day held in September.

I will miss hearing from him. South Union Baptist honored Jonathan Rathbun as a college graduate during the worship service on May 26.

Treasure Found in Walls Lonnie and Patti Foust recently purchased the former Charlie Meyer home north of Canton. Mr. Meyer, who passed away March 30, 2012 at the age of 97, was well known in the Canton area. He had been a farmer most of his life. He received an honorary bachelor of arts degree from Culver-Stockton College in 2009. The family of Mr. Meyer had told the Foust's that it was rumored that Charlie had hidden something in the walls, perhaps a coin collection or something. During recent remodeling, the couple kept in mind that they might “find” something and they did, a letter written by Charlie Meyer in 1961, the envelope also contained two pennies, or maybe Charlie's two cents worth. The letter follows as written in Charlie's hand, dated Jan. 31, 1961. (Note, the letter contains some language that may be offensive to some). To Whoever is strong enough to remove all these nails. This farm is owned by a Mrs. M. Lambert and managed by an amicable man Clarence Quintal. Mr. John F. Kennedy has taken office as our 34th president of this United States. He thinks he has found the state of affairs in a terrible mess but we only have to wait 4 years to see what he does for this country. We have a lot of communist to put up with- Our farm prices are very low- compared to what we have to pay for everything else we need to buy. Altho soybeans are

$2.52 a bushel, we wonder what is causing them to go up with all the predictions of a large crop last fall. Farm Prices must get better or the country will lose several families, that really enjoy farm life, to the city. Unemployment is great for this time of the year. The country is also wondering what to do about the negroes in the South. They are trying to get the schools to integrate, A word used to mean combine colored and white peoples. Today is a lovely sun shiny day after seven days of near zero weather. We are getting ready to figure income tax both federal and state. At present Federal taxes take about 20 cents out of every dollar for the single person. Also on the farm problem, we have an organization trying to get the farmers to join together so they can demand a better price for their commodities. This is called N.F.O. (National Farmers Union). It sounds good until you hear of the tactics they might use and then it begins to sound like some hoodlum activities. Not very good! Even with knowing all the problems we are faced with today, I believe this is a great country to live in. We hope that whenever this is found all the problems are solved and the world is living together in peace. Also the moon has been explored and scientists has found the earth the best place for God's people after all. The Meyer Family.

BACKWARD GLANCES From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers 25 Years Ago The Press-News Journal May 19, 1988 Canton R-V senior Billy Wells completed 12 years without a miss, roughly around 2,088 school days. Since first grade, Wells, 18, said he just never felt like missing school and always thought it was important to show up for classes. A plan adopted Wednesday by the Lewis County C-1 School Board will distribute the districts 667 students almost equally between the Ewing and LaGrange schools next year. 45 Years Ago The Press-News Journal May 16, 1968 At the meeting of the Canton Board of Aldermen an ordinance was passed officially changing the name of Fourth Street between Lewis and Clark Streets to Avenue of the Missourians.

He was a member of the Bluff Springs Methodist Church. At graduation exercises of the Lewistown senior class of 1968 may 15, Miss Bonnie Van Meter was named valedictorian of the class of 29 students and Sharon Ann McCoy was named salutatorian. Ewing High School graduated 36 seniors on May 16. Valedictorian was Pam Selby, and salutatorian was Jack Olson. This was the largest graduating class in the school history.

Ann Burrows was valedictorian and best citizen high ranking girl. Betty Harness was salutatorian. Robert Galbraith is planning to attend the School of Dentistry at St. Louis University next year. 85 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal May 24, 1928 Maywood was greatly shocked, saddened and excited Saturday afternoon when it was learned that Mrs. Harriet Fernow, 78, had taken her own life by getting into a watering trough which contained but 18 inches of water. The body of Leo H. Sheedy, son of Mr. and Mrs. D.A. Sheedy of Ewing and a student at Gem City Business College, who was drowned April 17 when he fell off the government boat Nauvoo, was found floating in the river several miles below Clarksville Friday morning, Young Sheedy came to Quincy last September, entering the business college. His eyes had been troubling him and he decided to take a vacation for the next summer and re-enter school next September. He secured employment on the Nauvoo, and it is believed that he fell into the river in mid-stream a short distance south of Louisiana. During the down pour of rain Tuesday afternoon a thunderous report sounded thru the business section of town as if lighting

had shattered some building close by. It proved that the Planing Mill was the target and a young man, Charles Richards, wor4king at a machine, had received a shock that felled him prone across a truck of lumber from which he had been feeding his machine. For 15 minutes he was almost pulseless and then he began to recover, and soon, by the aid of a physician, was practically at himself and was taken to his home. Canton News 95 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal May 24, 1918 June 5 is designated as the day in which young men who have reached the age of 21 since last June 5, shall register for military service. The new law provides that the 21 year old men registered on June 5 this year shall be placed on the bottom of the list in the several classes to which they are assigned, and as a result none of the new registrants will be called for military service until the list of Class 1 men who registered last year is exhausted. The Red Cross drive for $100 million started Monday. The drive in this county for Lewis County’s apportionment of $13,298 has been made to date in only four towns in the county and these four all went over the top with a goodly sum. Monticello was the first one to reach her quota of $1,000; the total date is $1,600.50. Sunday afternoon from 6 to 7 p.m., rain fell in torrents accompanied by a severe electric display. Fortunately for the chicken crop, the rain was slow in coming up. The distant rumble of thunder for an hour before the rain gave the chicken raisers time to

look out for their chicks and as it was so near roosting time most all were housed before heavy rain. Deer Ridge. 125 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal May 28, 1888 T.S.

The “Old Fathers” of waters has been upon a fearful tear up the creek the last few weeks but is fast coming down to a common level with other streams and will soon subside back to his main channel to wind its way down to the Gulf and thence to the majestic ocean. The east and west walls of the brick ice house belonging to August Engwald, in the brick row at Tully, gave way last Friday night. The house was full of ice and owing to the high water, Mr. Engwald has to dispose of it as soon as possible and he is selling it at $1.50 per ton. The little town, Union, in Clark County, is flooded with scarlet fever. We were not informed as to the number of cases, but it has reached the state that their neighboring town, Kahoka, has deemed it necessary to quarantine against it. On each road leading to Kahoka there are one or two men as guards, ready to inquire whether or not you came through Union. If so, you are not allowed to go into Kahoka. The disease is not only among children, but older persons are contacting it.

Calf Roping and over 40 team roping will be some of the many events at the Labelle Rodeo

LaBelle Rodeo History The late Basil Fountain helped establish the LaBelle Saddle Club in 1948. An offshoot event of that early group became the LaBelle Rodeo. The first one was held Sept. 24, 1951 at the Lake once owned by the City of LaBelle, south of LaBelle on Route D. In 1953, the LaBelle Saddle Club became known as the LaBelle Rodeo Association. In 1960, a trail ride was held the Sunday after the weekend rodeo. For a number of years, the Rodeo operated under the auspices of the City of LaBelle and the Rodeo Association rented the rodeo grounds from them. In 2004, the Rodeo Association bought the grounds. More land was purchased in 2006 to expand the rodeo facilities. In an article from the Press-News Journal from August 2, 1967 says Basil Hoff Fountain, 58, of LaBelle, died Sunday in Blessing Hospital where he has been a patient for 12 hours. He had suffered a heart attack Saturday. He was founder and president of the LaBelle Rodeo Association for 17 years. The LaBelle Rodeo continues each year to entertain young and old alike Events include a Queen contest, a parade and performances nightly. Tickets can be purchased in advance at local merchants or at the gate, with special prices for children. Everyone is encouraged to attend the events at LaBelle and enjoy the tradition of the LaBelle Rodeo.

Following dinner, Cindy McCutchan gave a PowerPoint presentation, focusing on life in Canton during the early 1900s providing information about the charter members of the chapter Mrs. Vina Ives Bowden organized Chapter BS on May 26, 1913. She shared interesting and humorous facts about charter members and experiences in organizing the chapter. Those attending shared memo-

ries of past events and how P.E.O. has impacted their lives. Betty Jo Lloyd assisted Cindy with the research for the program. The theme for the evening was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then (1913) and now (2013).â&#x20AC;? Table decorations included items used in 1913 and items used more recently. Everyone enjoyed viewing exhibits of the various Chapter BS activities over the years. Refreshments were served after the program. Hostesses, Anne Davis, President of Chapter BS and Shirley Hinkle, vice-president, wore ironed crinoline aprons. Other chapters represented were: Chapter BO, LaGrange; Chapter AT,

Seven students enrolled in the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural course, Managerial Accounting Decision Making, taught by Dr. Dell Ann Janney, accounting professor and associate dean of experiential education at Culver-Stockton.

Attencion! Este informe contiene información muy importante. Tradúscalo o prequntele a alguien que lo entienda bien. [Translated: This report contains very important information. Translate or ask someone who understands this very well.]

What is the source of my water? The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and groundwater wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Our water comes from the following source(s):

Robby and Michelle Miller of Durham are the parents of a daughter, born April 12, 2013 at Blessing Hospital in Quincy. She weighed seven pounds, seven ounces and has been named Zoey Olivia. Grandparents are Johny and Connie Miller of Durham, and John and Carolyn Cottrell of LaBelle. She joins siblings twin brother and sister Chevy and Avery.

Our drinking water is supplied from another water system through a Consecutive Connection (CC). To find out more about our drinking water sources and additional chemical sampling results, please contact our office at the number provided below.

Buyer Name LEWIS CO PWSD 1 Source Water Assessment:


The Department of Natural Resources conducted a source water assessment to determine the susceptibility of our water source to potential contaminants. This process involved the establishment of source water area delineations for each well or surface water intake and then a contaminant inventory was performed within those delineated areas to assess potential threats to each source. Assessment maps and summary information sheets are available on the internet at To access the maps for your water system you will need the State-assigned identification code, which is printed at the top of this report. The Source Water Inventory Project maps and information sheets provide a foundation upon which a more comprehensive source water protection plan can be developed.

Why are there contaminants in my water? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Contaminants that may be present in source water include: A. Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. B. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. C. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. D. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. E. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the Department of Natural Resources prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Department of Health regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.

Is our water system meeting other rules that govern our operations? The Missouri Department of Natural Resources regulates our water system and requires us to test our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. Our system has been assigned the identification number MO2024335 for the purposes of tracking our test results. Last year, we tested for a variety of contaminants. The detectable results of these tests are on the following pages of this report. Any violations of state requirements or standards will be further explained later in this report.

How might I become actively involved? If you would like to observe the decision-making process that affect drinking water quality or if you have any further questions about your drinking water report, please call us at 573-209-3253 to inquire about scheduled meetings or contact persons.

Do I need to take any special precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunocompromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800426-4791).

Special Lead and Copper Notice: If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. LEWIS CO PWSD 1 is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791) or at

Contaminants Report Definitions: MCLG: Maximum Contaminant Level Goal, or the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. MCL: Maximum Contaminant Level, or the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. SMCL. Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level, or the secondary standards that are non-enforceable guidelines for contaminants and may cause cosmetic effects (such as skin or tooth discoloration) or aesthetic effects (such as taste, odor or color) in drinking water. EPA recommends these standards but does not require water systems to comply AL: Action Level, or the concentration of a contaminant which, when exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow.. TT: Treatment Technique, or a required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water. 90th percentile: For lead and Copper testing. 10% of test results are above this level and 90% are below this level. Level Found: is the average of all test results for a particular contaminant. Range of Detections: Shows the lowest and highest levels found during a testing period, if only one sample was taken, then this number equals the Level Found. MRLDG: Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal, or the level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDL: Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level, or the highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. RAA: Running Annual Average, or the average of sample analytical results for samples taken during the previous four calendar quarters. LRAA: Locational Running Annual Average, or the locational average of sample analytical results for samples taken during the previous four calendar quarters.

Abbreviations: TTHM: Total Trihalomethanes (chloroform, bromodichloromethane, dibromochloromethane, and bromoform) as a group. HAA5: Haloacetic Acids (mono-, di- and tri-chloracetic acid, and mono- and di-bormoacetic acid) as a group. ppb: parts per billion or micrograms per liter. ppm: parts per million or milligrams per liter. n/a: not applicable. NTU: Nephelometric Turbidity Unit, used to measure cloudiness in drinking water. MFL: million fibers per liter, used to measure asbestos concentration. nd: not detectable at testing limits. The state has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year. Records with a sample year more than one year old are still considered representative.

1st Pub. June 6, 2013


Colonel Ron Replogle, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, would like to remind the public that flooding continues to affect safety on both the waterways and roadways. Flooding, due to the recent heavy rains, has proven to be extremely dangerous and even fatal. The weekend's storms created flooding issues all across the state. Three fatalities have resulted from the flooding so far. One fatality involved an individual trying to cross a flooded roadway and the other two involved individuals standing near flooded areas. Many of the roads across the state which are near or crossover waterways are still under water, and should be considered impassable and extremely dangerous to cross. For their safety and that of their passengers, drivers are reminded to stay alert while driving in areas known to flood. Barricades closing a roadway are there to protect you. Drivers must respect barriers or barricades put in place by MoDOT -- it is extremely dangerous and a violation of state law to drive around them. Never drive through fast-moving waters; even a small amount of fast-moving water can sweep a slow-moving vehicle off the roadway. If your vehicle becomes stuck in rising water, get out quickly and move to higher ground. The Patrol also asks boaters across the state to take extra precautions when boating in flooded areas. Many areas of Missouri have experienced large amounts of rainfall over the last week causing rivers and lakes to become swollen. Many times the right decision is to stay off the water. In areas where lakes or rivers have spilled over the banks, erosion and damage can occur to flooded structures, docks, or water laden levees by boat wakes. Boaters should avoid operating in these areas. If operation in these areas is necessary boaters should operate at idle speed so as not to cause a wake. Flooded rivers and streams with moving currents present some of the most dangerous situations a boater can encounter. Fast moving water can easily capsize or flip a boat, especially when combined with fixed objects such as trees and buildings. Boaters should avoid any operations in these swift flowing waters. Many lakes and rivers across the state have only seen routine increases in water levels. It is for the safety of the public and to minimize damage to property that the Highway Patrol requests boaters avoid waterways that have been impacted by the most severe flooding. The Patrol encourages motorists and watercraft operators to protect themselves by making sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint and everyone in the vessel is wearing an approved life jacket.

Canton Baseball Great Season Canton Tigers Tremendous Effort MFA Exchange 130 Lewis Street, Canton, MO 573-288-4404

Lots of hard work went into where you are today! We have Tiger Pride! Bill Fretwell, Broker / MO & IL: 573.767.5436 Susan Adam, Sales / MO: 660.342.2773 Craig Myers, Sales / MO: 660.341.9305 Jennifer Wood, Sales / MO: 217.257.8812 Office: 573-767-5436 109 East Lafayette, Monticello, MO REAL ESTATE

A Winning Season The Canton Tigers had a great season ending with a trip to the Class 2A State Tournament and receiving fourth place. Clint Smith completed his first year as baseball coach at Canton and a trip to the state tournament was a great way to end his first season. He previously taught in Clark County for 14 years. His wife Angela teaches at Clark County and they have three sons, Koy, Brody and Conner. Smith said, “We were late really getting started due to the great basketball season they had. We thought that we would be good but really didn’t know how good. Going to state has always been something that you dream about as a coach but when it happens it is just pretty surreal.” “I have to say that we didn’t have a standout player we got where we did because of the group we had, everyone contributed.” commented Coach Smith “The week leading up to state was challenging. We had to practice inside more than you ever wanted to. We practiced in Quincy to get used to a larger field. Smith gives a lot of credit to everyone who helped the boys along the way. He said, “I just want to thank all the kids, parents, administrators,

Congratulations Austin Hoewing and the Canton R-V Team

and fans for their support. I know that these boys have been taught how to play the game the right way and that is due to the great coaches that they have had growing up.” Tom Niemann has been the assistant baseball coach at Canton for three seasons. He is married to Meleia and they have two children, Tori and Tyler. He said the key to the successful season was when they found the right combination of putting people in the right positions and batting order, not to mention how hard each of the young men worked to be on a winning team. The team started out slow but gained momentum. He said the team is a great bunch of kids who liked to have fun at the games, while still

focusing on their goal. He is happy the players were able to experience the thrill of playing at a state tournament and also have the support of the community. Cameron Durst said the best part of the season was being in the state tournament 25 years later, after my Dad, Dennis was there. It was really cool to play in that environment. Big stadium, people and the news coverage and hanging out with all the guys. He said he is “definitely ready for soccer season to get here, Get Our Shine On.” Skyler Bronestine said, “My favorite part of the season was probably my diving play in center field. Regular season games wasn’t near as exciting as state games were. State

games were also more intense than regular games.” Tyler Niemann said his favorite memory was all of the late game heroics we seemed to have. With walk offs three different times throughout the season it was fun seeing how our team would never quit and would fight through any adversity we faced. The state games are much different from the regular season because it is the best of the best. They are your last two games of the season no matter what, plus knowing that you are coming home with a medal and a banner is great feeling too. And anytime you can hang a banner in the gym is amazing knowing that you are adding to the school history and will be proud when you come back later on and see the accomplishments that you have achieved. Senior Lucas Brown, said his favorite part was “Being a part of the Tigers and being successful as a team and as an individual. He will always remember going to state and all the memories that were made. State games are different because you never have seen the teams before and its really more nerve wrecking. The excitement in the atmosphere is incredible. great experience.”

Canton R-V Baseball Family of Medals

The Niemann family has a distinction not matched by many, with both parents and their children all earning medals from state tournament action. Assistant baseball coach Tom Niemann and his son Tyler each received state medals for the 2013 baseball season. Meleia Niemann and daughter Tori each have two medals for the state tournament basketball teams where Meleia was an assistant coach and Tori played on the winning teams in 2009 and 2010. Tori Niemann also has several medals from state track appearances. Mrs. Niemann said she was so happy that her son Tyler was able to have the experience of playing on a state team and all the memories that go along with it. Both parents said it was much easier to be a coach while having their child play, than it was to watch the games from the sidelines.

Canton R-V Baseball Durst’s Play in Tournament 25 years apart Dennis Durst was a part of a Canton Baseball Tiger team that won second place in the Missouri State Baseball Class 1 tournament in 1988 and now his son Cameron has those same kind of memories twenty-five years later. Although times have changed, the challenges and excitement of participating at state tournament level action is the same. Durst said he was happy his son Cameron was able to be a part of the 2013 Canton Tigers and they are proud of their state medals they now both possess. Durst gives credit to his former teammates and coach, Randy Lillard, for just being a great bunch of guys who had a winning

combination together and were a fun bunch of people. Twenty-five

years later and having his son Cameron play for Canton and going

on to state is just an experience they will never forget. Cameron has always played soccer and basketball, but this is only his second year as a baseball player for the Tigers. Durst said when they played in 1988 they had scouts from several different major league baseball organizations watching them play and he was invited to go through tryouts for the Cincinnati Reds. Playing on a large field, in front of a large crowd and the community support are experiences that father and son will always remember. Dennis Durst said he is proud of his son and the other young men on the Canton Tiger team and very happy for all of them to be a part of a state finals team.
