See You at the Pole (SYATP) is an annual gathering of Christian students of all ages at a flagpole in front of their local school for prayer, scripture-reading and worship, during the early morning before school starts. The American SYATP events occur on every fourth Wednesday of September. The events began in 1990 small group of teenagers in Burleson, Texas. On September 11, 1991 an estimated one million students gathered at school flagpoles all over the country. From Boston, Massachusetts, to Los Angeles, California, from North Dakota to the tip of Texas, students came together to pray. Like those first students, they prayed for their schools, for their friends, for their leaders, and for their country. Within the first few years, the movement began to spread to other nations through missionaries from the U.S. Now each year, more than 3 million students from all over the world participate in See You at the Pole in places such as Canada, Korea, Japan, Turkey, and the Ivory Coast.

Nixle Alert System Upgrades The Macon County Commission voted last week to expand Emergency Management’s Current Nixle Alert System. This will greatly enhance our capabilities in the event of a major incident. The upgrade includes being able to geographically target alerts, to avoid the “over-alerting” effect, in case one part of the county is experiencing an incident, and another part is not. Another upgrade is to be

able to provide the capability for different groups such as a group for medical personnel, fire personnel and law enforcement personnel and others to relay information quickly In the event of an incident. And lastly, this will give us the capability to access the IPAWS system, (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) in the future, to seamlessly integrate our warnings with the Emergency Alert System, NOAA all hazards

Well here we are at the first full week of Fall. Where did Spring and Summer go? The time goes so fast. Hope all of you have had a great week. I spent a wonderful weekend at the 2013 SCCA Women’s Retreat. Friday afternoon about 60 women from area churches meet at the SCCA camp north of Clarence. This is a wonderful time for so many of us.

If you have been by the OATS facility at 3006 Jims Road in Macon over the last few days you’ve probably wondered what the brightly colored semi‐ truck is doing in the parking lot. September 24 through October 3 OATS is hosting the Professional Driving Simulator Training mobile unit. Jim & Michelle Eastwood came from Paducah Kentucky to train OATS Northeast drivers on safe driving techniques. The mobile unit is owned by the Paducah Transit Authority. Missouri Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) provided funding to bring the unit from Paducah to Missouri this year. This is the second time OATS has hosted the simulator; OATS Bridgeton facility hosted the mobile unit about two years ago. Paducah Transit’s Mobile Driver Training Simulator is a high‐tech, state‐of‐ the‐art, simulator entirely self‐contained in a 53‐ foot expandable mobile

classroom. According to Paducah Transit, simulation training provides instructional strategy that immerses drivers in a situation resembling reality. This type of instruction is especially important in situations where real world errors would be too dangerous or too expensive. Simulator training is considered an invaluable tool in all drivers training curriculum by enhancing existing training, reducing risk exposure and improving safety performance. Simulator training works because: -Drivers can practice dangerous scenarios without being in real danger and by not putting the public at risk with on‐ the‐road training. -Drivers learn how to avoid crashes from major accidents to costly fender benders. -Individuals can “drive” through all kinds of weather (rain, snow, ice, wind, fog) in day or night. - Scenarios can be customized for you, the client; to teach your drivers how to avoid the type of a frequently.

THE SHEPHERD CALLS When Is Enough Enough? The Sunday morning newspaper listed Saturday’s college football scores. Baylor defeated LA-Monroe 70-7. I’m not sure how those points were won, but Baylor’s score is the equivalent of 10 touchdowns. Recently I heard of a major league baseball team scoring a record 25 runs. This season I watched my favorite baseball team, the Kansas City Royals, leading in a game by 11-0. When Kansas City came to bat in the bottom of the eighth inning, the commentator said, “You can never have enough runs.” “You can never have

enough . . .” Is that true? One of the world’s richest men was being interviewed. He was asked, “How much is enough? When can a person relax and just enjoy life?” The number he suggested as “enough” was more than most of us will earn in our entire life—let alone accumulate. However, he did say no one needs more than three houses. Indeed! Striving for enough, pushing for more, never being satisfied has become a way of life for many. It is a major source of our anxiety. In church business meetings, I often noticed that the greatest attention was given to the financial re-

Atlanta Hornets Win Baseball Tournament

COMMUNITY NEWS port. No one, and certainly not I, can tell you when you have enough. However, may I suggest this is an area that greatly tests our faith. Can we be good, faithful stewards and not be greedy? Let me make some biblical observations that could be helpful. After God through Moses led the Hebrews from Egyptian slavery into the wilderness, they feared they would surely starve. God sent manna for them to eat. God said just gather enough for the day; I’ll send more tomorrow. Fearing God might not send more, some tried to horde more to be sure they

Dr. H. Wade Paris had enough. But the next day, they found it ruined. Jesus gave two parables showing how greed can easily misguide us. One rich man’s earnings were so good he proposed to make more room to keep it. He died one night soon after and had to leave it all. (Luke 12:16ff) Another rich man “fared sumptuously each day” but failed to help a beggar at his gate. (Luke 16:19) Most of us can quote The Lord’s Prayer; but did you notice Jesus prayed, “Give us this day our daily bread.” (Matthew 6:11) Our bread for today—not necessarily tomorrow. Ouch!

Youth Find Their Voice at State 4-H Contest

HEARTLAND HEADLINES Thanks to the Heartland community Facebook page, Miss Laurie and her swans are getting rather famous. Laurie Sharpe has been feeding and caring for three pairs of swans on our lake the last few years. Every year, a few fluffy, grey cygnets hatch and being to swim around the edges of the water. But the babies are always in great danger from predators, including one of the aggressive male swans. So, Laurie segregates the trouble-maker in a fenced cove. She keeps a watchful eye on the other swans and feeds them at the waters’ edge every day. When a swan gets injured, Laurie calls for the local swan-wranglers to come lend a hand. A few of the young men grab their boats and head out

into the lake with nets to capture and care for the injured bird. Recently, it took nearly four hours to rescue one of the swans that had become tangled in fishing line. But the wranglers got it done! Caring for swans may seem like a minor thing in light of all the troubles in the world. But this effort on the part of Laurie and her wranglers is just an extension of our desire to be a blessing in the word. Even to swans. David Barton led a small team from Heartland last week on a missions trip to Colombia, South America. They were joined by our good friend and missionary to the Middle East, Tass Abu Saada along with other pastors and leaders from Colombia. The team worked with

five categories: prepared speaking, technologyassisted speaking, extemporaneous speaking, interpretation and public service announcement. Ryan Ancell placed 1st in the technology-assisted junior division, Madeline Smith placed 2nd in public service announcements for the senior division and Felicety Wilcox placed 3rd in dramatic interpretation senior division. “Future success depends a lot on the ability to communicate,” said Tracie Moore, Macon County 4-H Youth Development Specialist. “This contest takes those communication skills learned in our county 4-H program and develops them on a larger stage.” While competition is encouraged, it’s actually a means to an end, said Bradd Anderson, state 4-H youth specialist, who coordinates the event. “Trophies can be great motivators,” said Anderson.

local churches and pastors on several outreach events. They also had the opportunity to meet with educators and government leaders one evening. Our team was blessed to be able to participate in all these events. The trip was especially meaningful for team member Mauricio Toro, who grew up in Colombia. Mauricio’s home church hosted our team for the week. As always, the team members came home with more blessings than they left behind. We are continually amazed that God would allow a group of people from the middle of the Missouri cornfields to take part in work going on around the globe. Our part to play is very small, but we are so grateful to be able to do it.

Bevier’s “See You at the Pole” a Success

See You at the Pole was a success at Bevier with around 100 people gathered around the pole for prayer. It was great to have a large majority of students ranging from the elementary to high school. Also in attendance were teachers, parents, clergy, and state representative Tim Remole. Emphasized and prayed for were our nation, revival, our troops, and this school year.

Black Diamond Jubilee By Bill Lear Hello again from the Black Diamond Jubilee. We had a great show on August 24th with Terry Smith from Nashville TN. Terry, a singer/songwriter, has written many songs including Far Side Banks of Jordan for Johnny Cash and June Carter. On September 14th, Kevin Morris played and did many crowd favorites. Kevin is from Vandalia, Mo. Along with Kevin, we had 11-year-old Rayce Truitt from Macon. Rayce put a charge into the crowd with his Johnny Cash selections. He did a great job! On Sept. 28th, Wade Benson Landry and Teresa Landry from the God and Country Theater in Branson were here. Wade

played his fiddle for several of the big names such as George Jones, Mel Tillis and others. Teresa, originally from Laredo, MO is also a tremendous singer. Hope you didn’t miss the show! October 12th brings Mark and Sue Jenkins from Sioux City, Iowa. They are a husband and wife duo with wonderful harmonies. Mark and Sue keep you laughing with their humor and cutting up on the stage. I know we always highlight the guests, but as most already know, we have a great group in theBlack Diamond Jubilee. House band. From Karen Bail on the bass guitar plus all the other instruments she can play. Sax, trumpet,

mandolin and anything she wants to play, Karen is very talented. Jim Moncrief plays steel guitar, fiddle, banjo and dobro and also sings a great song-and he’s got good ones. Steve Riker, the drummer also sings. Steve played several years with the group “Head East.” Bill Potts plays lead guitar, we give him a lot of static because he is the oldest in the group. Aaron Russell, the piano player, also plays the bass when Karen plays her other instruments. Aaron is a wonderful singer also. Bill Lear, or Wee Willy, whichever one shows up, sings a little, too. So come see our show because we are looking forward to seeing you. Keep it country!

The Church Basement Ladies A Second Helping

The Church Basement Ladies series is one of the most popular regional theatre offerings in years. Maples Repertory Theatre will open A Second Helping: The Church Basement Ladies Sequel on October 16. Todd Davison, Maples Rep Artistic Director, says, “These Lutheran ladies are so popular we knew we had to invite them back. Everyone, even nonchurch-goers, seems to recognize their mother, grandmother, aunt, neighbor or even themselves in these memorable characters.” Three years ago the Maples Rep production of Church Basement Ladies

broke theatre records and became a regional sensation. Everyone loved it. Real live church basement ladies representing almost every religious denomination came to the Royal and enjoyed the music and comedy. Every church seems to have that group of faithful women who cook their way into the hearts of their congregation. So what are the Ladies up to this time? It’s an all new musical set in 1969 and some folks want the ladies to change with the times, but Church Basement Ladies are too busy getting ready for the Luther League banquet and Missionary Night to pay much

attention to the winds of change. The drama of the Vikings in the Super Bowl is no match for the drama under the sanctuary. Actors from New York, Indiana and Kansas are cast in this family-friendly musical, including Maples Rep returnees Cheyenne Nelson, Laurie Sutton and

Friday morning by Clark Dobbs, from the Macon First Baptist Church. The study title was “The Pressure of Words”. Scripture was read from James 3:1-18. Clark told us that our words can become inconsistent when we don’t consistently place our speech under the lordship of Christ. We should use wise and gentle words. The residents and staff cheered on the South Shelby Cardinals this afternoon at the South Shelby Homecoming Parade. The parade was held in Clarence this year, so we had front row seats. The students and faculty did a great job on all the floats! We thank the South Shelby staff and students for coming by the Care Center. GO CARDS!

its second road trip of the season to Ewing Mo to face the Highland Cougars. The Tigers have been clicking on all cylinders lately running off three victories in a row and positioning themselves for a run at the conference title. The Tigers have been doing it offensively on the ground behind the thundering herd of Joe Lewis, Chris Little and Kaleb Welch. They have taken to the air with Quarterback Craig Smith and Receivers Brendan Watts, Jon Murray and Caleb Perry. Tonight they would all shine again but the true spotlight should fall on the Macon Defense. Winston Churchill might have said, had he been there, “an iron curtain has descended across the tundra of Highland and it is made up of Tigers” Macon’s Defense was uncompromising and unrelenting Friday night. The Tigers defensive line was applying constant pressure on Highland Quarterback Rich Miller. The linebackers and secondary kept containment and forced everything in front of them. The First Quarter of the game was in complete opposite of the fireworks vs. Clark County last week. Highland was forced to punt after their opening drive stalled and Macon took over. The Tigers chewed up yardage on the ground highlighted by a forty-six yard run by Little that was courtesy of the offensive line opening huge hole in the Highland defense. The Tigers pushed the ball to the Highland twenty-five but held and turned over on downs. The Macon D-Line took over and stuffed the Highland run game forcing the first Cougar three and out of the game. Macon had excellent field position on the forty yard line and started marching down the field; again a promising drive was halted just as the Tigers appeared to be going in for a score. The Tigers fumbled the ball and Highland took over inside their own ten yard line. The quarter ended with no score.

As the second quarter started, the Tiger defense forced another three and out by the Cougars. Macon took over on the Highland 38 and this time was not going to be denied. Caleb Welch plowed through the cougars for 36 yards and it was first and goal. Craig Smith walked it in two plays later and Sontheimer nailed the point after, Macon 7 Highland 0. The Cougars had to face the Tigers defense again and the results were the same, Jordan Lolli sacked QB Rich Little and the cougars again were three and out. The Tigers offense showed its balance on the next drive ramming into the Cougar defense with nice runs up Little and Lewis and passing game of Smith to Watts. Lewis capped it off hitting a nice hole opened by the line and zipping in from twenty yards for the touchdown. Suddenly Macon was leading the Cougars 14-0. Highland took the kickoff and got its first, first down of the quarter. The Tigers had forced three straight three and

outs before this first down. The Tigers did not let the Cougars get greedy; three plays later the Cougars punted. Brendan Watts took the kickoff eighty yards down the sideline and appeared to score, but it was brought back on a holding penalty. The Tigers again were not to be deterred with its balanced offensive attack. Smith by air to Watts for 18, Little on the ground for 6, reception by Lewis down the sideline for 23 and Lewis up the gut for a 14 yard touchdown. Macon was starting to pull away 21 to 0. Highland tried to put up a fight driving the ball down the field through the air. Highland quarterback Rich Hill fired the ball toward the goal line and was halted on a diving interception by Christian Thrasher. The Tigers crushed the Cougars hopes on the next drive Joe Lewis scrabbled out of bounds after a 22 yard jog. Craig Smith dropped back and saw his favorite target Brendan Watts streaking down the field and lofted a touchdown strike of 56

yards and drove a dagger in the heart of the Highland faithful. The Highland offense was held again and the two teams went to halftime, Macon 27 to 0. Macon’s opening drive was stalled and they were forced to punt. Highland must have hopped the fortunes were about to change but Jordan Lolli and the Tigers defense would have none of it. Lolli racked up his second sack of the night and the cougars had to punt. After a nice roll of the punt to the Macon 16 the Tigers slammed the door. The Tiger bit off chucks of yardage by land and by air. Chris Little capped off a dominate night on the ground with a six yard rumble in for another Macon score. The Tigers now lead 33 to 0. The Tiger defense held the cougars the rest of the quarter ending with no score from Highland. The Forth Quarter found the Tigers driving again, the score allowing head coach Pete Claas the ability to give valuable playing time to his younger players. Things did not change for the Tigers, they simply marched down the field and Ethan Freeze punched it in the end zone from 5 yards out. Macon led 40 to 0. All that was left to decide on the night was would it be a shutout. A game Cougar team clawed back at the Tigers and scored on their last drive of the game. The buses had warmed up long ago and took the Tigers home with a dominate 40 to 8 thrashing of Highland. Macon will host Louisiana this week for Homecoming.

Tuesday September 24th the Bulldogs hosted Novinger at the La Plata Sports complex. The Bulldogs were lead by Ben Bolden 2 for 3 at the plate and Matt Safley on the mound. Safley pitched seven innings allowing three runs on eight hits. The dogs scored two runs on a single by Bolden in the first and never gave up the lead from there, wining 6 to 3. The Bulldogs traveled to Linn County Friday night and put a beat down on the Wildcats. La Plata took advantage of Wildcats mistakes and scored 19 runs on 9 hits and 7 walks.

The Bulldogs showed a balanced attack up and down the lineup lead by a 4 RBI game from Preston Payne. Ben Bolden pitched five innings allowing no earned runs and the Bulldogs won 19 to 1. Saturday the Bulldogs faced Atlanta in the La Plata Baseball Tournament. The Hornets got off to a hot start and kept the Bulldogs off the scoreboard. Hunter Howe went 3 for 3 at the plate for the Bulldogs, but it was not enough in the 9-0 loss. This week the Bulldogs host Meadville Tuesday October 1st and travel to Atlanta October 3rd.

BEVIER BASEBALL

La Plata softball started off the week with a 21-11 loss to Marceline Monday. The Lady Bulldogs put themselves within striking distance until Marceline put together a strong 7th inning. Camrie Feinberg, LaDonna White and Tiffany Easley all had 2 hits and Kalie Lene added a 3 RBI triple. The Lady Bulldogs pulled out a 6-1 victory in the JV game behind a strong pitching performance by Elizabeth Larson, who also contributed with a base hit and run scored of her own. Tuesday brought an 18-4 loss to the Novinger. La Plata fell behind early but it was a big 6th inning that put the game out of reach. Kalie Lene led the way for La Plata with a two hit night. La Plata made the long trip to Linn Co on Friday with an 8-3 loss. The Lady Mustangs came up with a clutch 2 out hit that drove in 3 runs in the bottom of the 6th to secure the victory. La Plata had chances to take control of the game but stranded 9 runners in scoring position. Saturday saw the Lady Bulldogs come up on the short end of a 15-0 loss to a Scotland Co. team at the Schuyler County tournament before it was cancelled due to rain. LaPlata was overmatched and Scotland Co. took control early to make quick work of the game. LaPlata returns to action on Monday night at Westran and then finishes with conference games on Tuesday vs Meadville and Thursday at Atlanta. -Josh Woodward

BMC-9 Novinger-10 Freshman River Wright pitched well tonight but really needed another days rest which led to too many walks. He pitched 8 innings with 10 k’s. We were down 6-0 in the top of the 6th and scored three. Novinger added one in the bottom of the 6th & we answered back 4 in the top of the 7th, held them in the bottom of the 7th & went into extras. We scored 2 in the 8th but Novinger scored 3 in the bottom half to win. I was real proud of the boys tonight. They fought till the end. Don’t ever count us down & out. We play good late inning baseball. The BMC Bulldogs defeated Brashear 21 to 3 Tuesday Night at Brashear. The winning pitcherDane Robertson 5 innings pitched, 9ks, 0 walks and 2 hits allowed. River Wright 4 for 5, The Macon Tigerettes hosted Westran Monday Night to kick off the week. Macon again sent their Ace Jordan Simmons to the mound. Jordan lived up to that billing by pitching a shutout and allowing only four hits while striking out seven. The Tiger offense was sparked by Anne Chambers, Kayla Vansickle and Allie Chambers that were a combined seven for nine. Macon won the game 6-0.

Brady Duncan 3 for 4 & Joey Montoya 3 for 4 with a 2 run homer. “We hit the ball well tonight. The boys scored in all five innings” The Bulldogs played a tough Green City team Thursday night losing 12 to 2 at home. Joey Montoya pitched well but the boys could not get the bats going. Keytesville was our 4th game this week & that meant a heavy work load on pitching but Dane Robertson pitched 3 innings of shut out ball & Dakota Peterson kept the shut out by pitching 2 solid innings. Our pitching got plenty of run support by some excellent hitting. We jumped off with 6 runs in the top of the 1st, which is what we’ve been trying to stress: get an early lead. The 2nd inning was even more exciting with 5 runs, including a Grand Slam by freshman River Wright. We added 8 more runs spread out amongst the next 3 innings. River Wright 5 for 5 including a Grand Slam & hitting for the cycle, Brady Duncan had 4 hits, Dane Robertson and Tim Ware had 3 hits apiece and Dakota Peterson & Ethan Pulliam a pair of hits apiece. - Riley Lucas mainder of the game. - Bruce Weimer

“Just” Human Interest - A Chapel in Ethel by Sharon Coram

I was honored when I was invited to a very special event on Sunday, September 29, 2013. It took place in Ethel, Missouri. It became even more of an honor once I saw exactly what the event was.

The Chapel

Years ago, Jack Lee of Ethel, was a teacher in Linwood, California. In the course of his career, there were 5 students, Paul L. Clark, Ronald L. England, Juan M. Ramirez, Gary F. Gatti, and John P. Ingles. None of them were in the same class with Mr. Lee, but they were all seniors when they were in his class. They all graduated and Mr. Lee never saw them again. He knew each student for no more than 4 months during the semes-

ter classes, but these 5 students made a huge impact on Mr. Lee’s life nonetheless. What exactly did they do that caused such a lasting affect? Each was killed in action in Vietnam. Jack has since carried a card in his pocket with the boys’ names and dates of death listed. Every January he rewrites the card. But recently, Jack decided he needed to do something more, which, as it turns out, was a lot more. In the yard at his home in Ethel now stands a small chapel, and a small “cemetery” with 5 crosses, each one bearing the name of one of the boys. There also stands a flagpole with a flag that flies at half-staff. The event on September 29 in Ethel was a memorial service for these 5 soldiers. Jacks’ niece, Deanna O’Brian, gave a brief introduction, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance, a prayer and Jack speaking of each one, sharing what he remembered. Following was speaker Larry Page from the Patriot Guard in Kirksville. Military honors were performed, and TAPS was played. The flag was folded and presented to Jack.

The Cemetery

The following are the names and known details of each soldier: • John P. Ingles enlisted in the Navy and volunteered for sub duty. He was stationed on the USS Thresher. On April 10, 1963 The Thresher was conducting deep-diving test in the Atlantic. The sub could not pull up and in a matter of minutes; the ship shattered killing all 129 men onboard. On the day prior, John had celebrated his 21st birthday and is now on Eternal Patrol. • Ronald L. England enlisted in the Marines and was a Lance Corporal. At 20 years old. One year after enlistment he was killed by multiple fragmentation wounds. •Gary F. Gatti was a shy student and Corporal. He died from wounds from an explosive device in Binh

Dinh Province when he was 20 years old on August 11, 1967. •Paul L. Clark was onboard a helicopter when it was shot down on September 6, 1967. The wreckage was found 6 days later. Paul was only 23 years old. •Juan M. Ramirez entered the Army on September 30, 1966 as a medic. On September 8, 1967 he was killed by small arms fire at age 21. He lived 9 days before he died from his injuries. Other than honoring the students that Jack knew so briefly, I feel there must be some deeper reason behind the lengths he has gone to. I imagine those reasons are very personal but for me personally, I am very grateful he shared this day with The Home Press and all those who attended.

The History

Macon County Economic Development works to provide for balanced growth and an ever increasing quality of life.

410 North Missouri Street Macon, MO 63552

By Merlyn Amidei with information from Peg Dunn (Written in 2006 - Reprinted with permission from Merlyn Amidei) A young man by the name of Hugh Calvin Dunn graduated from Harrisonville High School in 1940 and entered Missouri Valley College in 1941 with dreams of playing football and track. He had only completed two seasons of football and one season of track before his whole world changed because of World War II. Hugh entered the US Army with the 63rd Infantry Division in November 1942. While in Germany, he was wounded - not once but twice - in March 1945 and again in April 1945. He lost a hand and his lower arm. He received the Purple Heart with Cluster and the Silver Star Medal in April 1945. Sergeant Dunn was honorably discharged in November 1945. The war may have claimed part of his body but it could not take away his dream to play sports. When he returned to Missouri Valley for the second semester he was able to participate in track - running the 220-yard dash and on relay teams. The next fall he wanted to play football again, but thought he couldn’t play back and would switch to guard. But his coach gave him the opportunity to continue to play the back position, and Hugh successfully held this position until he graduated. By the time Hugh graduated in 1948 he had played four seasons of both football and track. Not only did he play, but as a senior he received the Williamson Football Award as the Small College Outstanding Player of 1948 and he was also voted to the NAIA Football Hall of Fame

The origins of the first homecoming celebration remain largely contested. Baylor, Illinois and Missouri are three of the frontrunners, all having planned and held their first “coming home” celebrations around 1910. Despite the debate, these early homecoming events all had similar characteristics: a football game served as a center point; the events included rallies, parades,

Coach Hugh Dunn

and he was also voted to the NAIA Football Hall of Fame that same year. Hugh continued his education at the University of Missouri and came to Macon for the 1950-1951 school term to teach physical education and coach football, basketball, and track. He received his Masters degree in 1951 and remained here Macon where he coached football and track for a total of forty years. Coach Dunn has received many honors and awards throughout the years. Some more memorable ones were having the Macon Football Field named after him in 1971, being inducted into Missouri Valley Hall of Fame in 1992 and being inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 1999 in Springfield. Hugh married his college sweetheart, Peg, who has been by his side for 56 years. She was Valley’s Queen and also the Track Queen ... and she will always be Hugh’s queen. They have three sons (Bucky, Buddy and Todd) and two daughters (Nancy and Laurie). They are also Poppy and Grammy to eleven grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Even though Coach retired in 1991, he and Peg still attend a lot of athletic events, not only at Macon, but at Mizzou and following the team of their son Todd, who followed in his father’s footsteps. During the summer you will probably see Coach mowing the lawn either on the Macon School grounds or at the Country Club where his son Bucky is the groundskeeper. And you can bet that next fall Coach and Peg will be at Hugh Dunn Field cheering on the Macon Tigers.

COMMUNITY NEWS

Deputy’s Report on Recent Attempted Kidnapping On September 16, 2013, an attempted kidnapping occurred in New Cambria. While this is “old” news, for those interested, the following is the Deputy’s Report we received (Names are withheld at the request of the Macon County Sheriff ’s Office): 1. On September 16, 2013 at approximately 1824 hours, the Macon County 911 transferred an emergency call to the Sheriff ’s Office in reference to an attempted kidnapping in the New Cambria City Park. The reporting party advised a female subject was the victim of an attempted kidnapping near the City of New Cambria’s park. 2. The reporting party advised that (2) white males in a black van attempted to take a female subject and that she escaped from them by running away to Suzie Q’s Bar and Grill. They advised the last direction of travel was on Brimstone Avenue in New Cambria, Missouri. 3. Numerous Law Enforcement agencies including the Sheriff ’s Office responded to the location in an attempt to locate the suspect vehicle without success. I then responded to the Bar and Grill with Deputy John

Taylor and made contact with the victim. 4. The victim appeared visibly upset and was crying. I asked her to tell me what had taken place. The victim advised she was walking west on Morgan Street when she seen a black van turn from Hwy 149/Main Street onto Roberts Street towards her. The victim advised that at first she thought it was a suspicious van she had been seeing in the area the past few days so she turned around and walked towards the bar. The victim advised when the van drove past her it turned partially blocking her travel and the driver asked her if she knew how to get to Wien. The victim advised she started to tell the male driver directions when another male approached her from behind and yelled at her to get into the van. She advised the second male that yelled at her grabbed her by the back of the shirt trying to get her into the van causing her shirt to rip. 5. The victim advised that she began to fight back with the man and struck him in the face. She advised that is when he lost his grip on her clothes and she ran away from the suspects through the

park. The victim advised the van then left the area on Main Street heading northwest towards State Highway Z. The victim advised she then called her mother and told her what had taken place and she was told to go to bar to get help. An employee of the bar and grill then called 911 to report the incident. 6. While speaking with the victim, I asked her if she could describe the suspects. The victim advised the driver was a white male, approximately 50 years of age with a long, scruffy, full face, black in color beard. She advised he had long black hair and was wearing a black t-shirt. The victim described the voice of the driver as someone that had smoked a lot, meaning it was raspy and deep. She was unable to provide any other descriptors and advised he did not exit the vehicle. She described the other suspect that exited the vehicle and attempted to kidnap her as a heavy set/ chubby, bald white male, approximately 30-40 years of age, wearing a white t-shirt.
