LOOKING FOR LOCAL VOLUNTEER PILOTS Angel Flight Central (AFC) is a 501(c)(3) organization that serves people in need by arranging charitable flights for access to health care and for other humanitarian purposes. With the help of a network of volunteer pilots, patients receive specialized medical care; deserving children travel to special needs camps, and medical supplies and goods are delivered to areas that have suffered Mother Nature’s wrath. AFC serves the entire state of Missouri, including all of Macon County. While there are 66 pilots in Missouri, there are no pilots in Macon County. “We would love to have some Angel Flight Central pilots based out of Flying Sargeants Airport in Macon, MO, Bradley Airport in Moberly, MO, North Central Missouri Regional Airport in Brookfield, Kirksville Regional Airport in Kirksville or any of the other small, regional airports in northern Missouri,” said Don Sumple,

Executive Director of AFC. To qualify to be an AFC volunteer pilot, one must: Provide transportation at no cost to Angel Flight Central passengers Hold a current FAA Private Pilot’s Certificate and current Medical Certificate Hold an Instrument Rating and maintain IFR currency (desired, not required) Have logged 250 hours Pilot in Command (PIC) Time and 500 hours Total Time. (Total time requirement is waived if pilot holds a Commercial Certificate) Have logged 25 hours in make and model for singleengine and 50 hours in make and model for multi-engine/ turbo-prop/jet Own or have access to an airworthy aircraft (as defined by Federal Aviation Regulations) Operate each flight in accordance with applicable FAR’s and the AFC Volunteer Pilot Handbook Provide proof of

maintaining at least $1 million total with $100,000+ per seat liability insurance Provide proof of licensure/ certification by the Federal Aviation Administration by submitting copies of pilot certificate(s), governmentissued I.D. and medical certificate Provide a digital photo for an Angel Flight Central Volunteer Identification Badge Complete the AOPA Air Safety Institute course for volunteer pilots flying public benefit flights. Complete at least one (1) approved safety-related course annually Complete AFC’s Volunteer Pilot Orientation Program before your first flight Reaffirm annually with AFC and fly at least one AFC flight every 24 months to remain on the Active Volunteer Pilot Roster Once the commitment has been made, the rest is easy. At AFC, a mission coordinator ensures that all of the details concerning a

mission are handled. After a passenger has qualified for a mission and the purpose of the mission confirmed, the potential mission is broadcast with a suggested flight routing. When a pilot elects to take a leg of a mission, the necessary paperwork is provided via their chosen method of communication. The mission paperwork includes flight planning information such as the number of passengers, weights, distances, recommended FBOs and phone numbers so that the pilot can easily contact passengers and linking AFC pilots. The pilot in command makes all go or no-go decisions. Angel Flight Central does not make nor override any pilot decision. “Angel Flight Central pilots know that they have helped someone in need. When pilots share their gift of flying it creates a personal sense of community. The pilots are truly the backbone of our organization,” Sumple added.

36 & 3 One Stop

I have now reached another plateau in my young life, and being a dutiful daughter I did what my parents expected of me, I got a job. I started working three days after I left school so, now mum had more rent money coming in. With the three girls gone from home there was just our George and I Paying for our keep. Before long our George along with Roy Claxton, Mickey Winn and Ronnie Wall joined the army and later he was shipped out to Malaysia, which is part of Asia. I well remember George sending me my first nylons and a green kimono and a big celebration in our neighborhood was held for their homecoming .These kind of parties always called for lots of beer and spirits, which they always had money for even though we did without the essentials. Most of the men went to their favorite pubs after tea time and met up with their mates for a pint or two, but our dad never did to my knowledge and would only have a drink at Christmastime and important celebrations.. I was hired by H. Samuels the largest jewelry manufacturing company in England. My position consisted of typing, sorting old gold of every description and price coding the jewelry. My wages were five dollars a week which was paid each Friday in cash in a little brown envelope. This form of payment continued while I lived in England. Mum took three dollars for my board and

gave me back two dollars and doled out tuppence ( two pennies) each day for my bus fare. I look back wondering why she didn’t give it to me all at once. As soon as I managed to save ten dollars I purchased a bicycle to ride to work and save the bus fare. Now I had a little more money to save for things that I needed. I was quite interested in my work. My supervisor’s name was Miss Eggleston and I called her Eggo, behind her back of course. Eggo was very good to me and she gave me a beautiful cameo encased in gold filigree, I was fond of her too. After about six months I had the chance of a promotion to the jewelry manufacturing department where there was more people and action. My new environment was a glassed in office with windows for each clerk to work with the craftsmen in the adjoining premises. Each week I weighed strips of gold and counted out twelve diamonds to the workers and at the end of the week I weighed everything back in including the lemel (gold dust) making sure there weren’t any discrepancies. During lunch Edie would come around with a large teapot and a tray of cups to give us our cuppa tea and we could also purchase a cheese cob (bun) which I really looked forward to.. My new supervisors name was Mr. Ronald Drinkwater and the other lady in the office was Dottie, who had the same position as me. I met a boy at work that I liked, his name was Ken. He came to our house one

evening after work and stood outside the garden gate. I was pretty nervous and finally asked our dad if he could come in for a cuppa tea, and he said yes. This was the boy that introduced me to cigarette smoking which I hated but, to please him I did and learned to enjoy it. Smoking was the in thing it was the fifties. Ken did not last long Then along came Frances Anthony George Joseph Hinckley. Tony was a truck driver, a nice fellow who lavished me with new clothes and took me to restaurants, something new to me .That friendship did not last too long even though he was a perfect gentleman I did come out of that relationship with a tan leopard skin lined full coat which I loved. Jean is coming up in the world, from rags to riches. Around that time our Kathy was married after a five year engagement which was the norm in those days. She married a wonderful man name Patrick and it was he who I named my first born after. Paddy was so good to me and I was at their house more than my own and soon left home to live with them, which was a much happier environment. My sister never forgot the time I arrived with flowers and chocs the day after Martins birth, three months prior to me leaving England. Kathy’s firstborn. I mentioned my nephews name because he passed suddenly at a young age last year and it is still hard for the family to reconcile to his death. I lost our Kathy too in two thousand and five.

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT: “The Grand Café”

Tammie Johnston has been in the restaurant business in one aspect or another for over 13 years. Her most recent endeavor being the owner/operator of The Grand Café since March of 2009. Tammie is quick to point out though, that she couldn’t do it without “Granny”and her other employees. The restaurant serves a full menu from 5:00am to 2:00pm Monday - Friday as well as a lunch buffet on Monday, Thursday, and Friday. In addition they offer a sandwich special daily that is not on the menu however, Tammie says if everyone likes it, it just may stay. From 2:00pm - 4:00pm Monday - Friday the coffee is fresh and the conversations lively as folks gather to share stories, both fiction and non-fiction, of course. Tammie says “ that’s what granny loves, everyone just coming in visiting and drinking coffee.” When I asked Tammie grannys name, she said “granny”, that’s what everyone calls her. Tammie says her favorite part of her business is the friendships she has formed with all her customers. She appreciates people choosing to come to The Grand Café when there are other places they could go. She says sometimes people just need a place to go for good food and conversation without dressing up. The Grand Café is located at 100 North Grand Street, Clarence, MO. They can be reached at (660)699-3883.

Dreaming Of Uninterrupted Sleep? by Mark Underwood You’re not alone—nearly half of all Americans are plagued with occasional insomnia, and about 15 percent have chronic sleepless nights. Try these tips to improve the quality of sleep, and the quality of your life. If you’re not sleeping well at night you may be at risk for health problems ahead. New research published in The Lancet, the world’s leading medical journal, says that if you have problems sleeping, you are at risk for health problems like diabetes heart failure, anxiety and

depression. You may not realize that if you have insomnia you are five times more likely to have anxiety and depression and at double the risk for congestive heart failure and diabetes. Difficulty sleeping can lead to daytime problems too, like mood disorders, irritability and a constant feeling of exhaustion. As people grow older, many experience age-related changes such as decreased quality of sleep. New research from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has determined that sound quality sleep, can improve cognition (which includes

All You Can Eat Buffet in a Family Atmosphere

decision decision-making skills, focus, concentration and memory). What can you do to improve your sleep? Plenty. You can tip the scales on the side of better sleep with these easy, no-nonsense, better sleep ideas. Six Steps to Better Sleep Upgrade your mattress. Your mattress may be triggering allergies that are playing havoc with your sleep. If your mattress is more than 7 years old, it may be time to replace it. Bed bugs hiding deep in mattresses are common sources of asthma and allergies. Cool down. Turn the

thermostat down to the mid-60s when you go to bed. Studies have shown that a cool bedroom helps induce sleep. Wear socks. Now that your bedroom is cooler, put on a pair of socks. The American Journal of Physiology suggests wearing socks to bed to achieve better sleep. Your feet are often colder than the rest of the body so wearing socks helps blood vessels in your feet stay dilated resulting in better sleep. Regulate your eating routine. Don’t eat a big meal right before bedtime, and don’t skip dinner so you go to bed hungry.

Scratch the screen time. Calm the brain before going to bed. Avoid reading, writing and checking email on your electronic devices before bedtime, and don’t watch TV right before you close your eyes.

Exercise regularly. If you exercise regularly, at least four times a week, research has shown you may be able to add an hour or more to your usual nights sleep. When you take these steps to improve your sleep, you’re moving in the right direction toward a healthier life.

COMMENTARY COMMENT

BUCKLIN HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1962

From the Editors Desk BY KATHY LIEBHART EDITOR kathy@maconhomepress.com

She’s Here!!! My second granddaughter was born Wednesday, June 20th and is beautiful and healthy! We, as in Pop & I, got to keep our 3 year old granddaughter for a couple days while her mommy and daddy were at the hospital. She had a great time, but she sure was ready to take her little sister home. We stayed in a motel that had a pool the first night so we were able to swim. Brylie, our granddaughter, tells me she can teach us how to swim. “All you have to do is hold someone’s hands and kick your feet” she says. Later we had to go and get snacks so we could watch cartoons. By the time the night was over she had purple play-do in her hair (because Pop was watching her while I was in the shower) and was so tired she could hardly hold her eyes open. Friday came and she was able to go get her baby sister. Talk about an excited little girl, she is going to be a big help to her mom, maybe too much help. It’s hard to believe that July is already here! The 4th is just around the corner! We usually have a Bar B Que and a great firework display, but this year is so busy we still aren’t sure what’s going on. We have the fireworks, just not the weekend to do anything. Between working, weddings and other’s events we are invited to there just

LIEBHART isn’t enough time. The main thing is making sure to spend it with family and friends. I think if the 4th falls in the middle of the week, you should just have that whole week off. It’s funny how a person’s thinking about fireworks change as we get older. When I was younger, I wanted the loudest and biggest fireworks there were. I would buy gross after gross of bottle rockets and hundreds of packages of firecrackers. The louder the better and heaven forbid anyone wanting to light them, I was in charge of the lighting. Now, I think they should just forget about the bottle rockets and firecrackers, just give me a lawn chair and let off the prettiest ones. There’s nothing better than a firework show, and for us grandparents, there’s nothing better than taking our grandchildren to watch the firework shows! I hope everyone has as safe and happy weekend and remember to come see us at our new location - 111 N. Rollins St. Macon, MO after July 1st.

FAITH

From the Desk of the Worship Center Mercy Kindness in excess of what may be expected or demanded by fairness. When God judges he has his mercy to contend with. Mercy is not governed by fairness, Mercy is governed by Love. God never ask us to be merciful to him, he has no need for mercy. Mercy is for those who fail, miss the mark, go back out, and may or may not ask for forgiveness. We have been given a tool for those of us who fail; it is called mercy. Mercy keeps me in the labor force When I am without excuse, guilty as sin, exposed before others, and ready for sentencing, I can survive if I am among the merciful, a fair judge is the last thing I need Do we really want what we deserve? A man found a man who was drowning and rescued him Later this man broken

the law and it time for his day in court Upon arriving he was relieved to see the judge was the man who had rescued him from the water. When he heard the judges sentencing which was very harsh he asked “Don’t you remember that day on the lake?” The judge replied, “I was your savior then, now I am your judge.” For this time Jesus has said, “ Come unto me all, I am with you always. I am not willing that any should perish. Who so ever will let him come.” Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. When you and I are in need are we more comfortable with what we deserve or with the mercy of God? Remember mercy exceeds fairness. Pastor Ron Thomason

Darcy Bright Featured in “Ozark Visitor” Spring 2012 Former Bucklin resident Darcy Bright was one of six students featured in the Spring 2012 “Ozark Visitor”. This magazine is a publication of the College of the Ozarks at Point Lookout, Mo. All six were 2012 graduates of the college

and were listed at “Future Leaders.” It was a foreshadowing of these students becoming future leaders of society, Darcy majored in Hotel/ Restaurant Management before her May 2012 graduation.

GABBY SAYS....

Which way to turn… Our 3 yr. old granddaughter Emmie Lou loves adventures. At an early age she learned that they are wonderful things. When we would get her for an afternoon she would throw her arms up and say “we’re going on an adventure”! Recently we gave her a flashlight set that contains 2 headlamps, 2 keychain/flashlight combos, and 3 small flashlights. She keeps them in a shoe box we call her adventure box, which also contains a pencil, some crayons, paper, and a plastic Easter egg full of quarters. On a recent adventure we were riding on the Ranger around our farm, Poppy (Emmies’ name for Eric) was driving and Emmie was sitting in the middle. As the sun began to set Emmie decided it was time for she and grammy (me) to put on our headlamps

and get the flashlights out. We rode along with her instructing Poppy which way to turn using her headlamp and flashlights to “see”, although the ranger headlights were on. We had a great time and Emmie felt very important guiding us through the treacherous terrain using her adventure equipment, saying which way to turn, which way to turn and keeping an eye out for the safest (and most fun) route to take. Later that night after bathes and snuggling, I couldn’t help but think how our adventure paralleled life in general. We often aren’t certain which way to turn and wish for someone to shine an extra light to help us decide. Maybe the only real decision we need make is to enjoy the adventure regardless of the rough terrain. Patty Greenwood

An Ethel Man’s Love of History

Jack Lee of Ethel, MO has donated hundreds of items to the Macon County Historical Society.

If you’ve visited the Macon Historical Society, you have viewed several items donated by Jack Lee of Ethel, MO. Jack’s first name is really Warren, however if you asked for a Warren Lee you may find it hard to find anyone that knows him. Jack was raised in the Ethel area, he graduated from Northeast Missouri State Teachers College and taught in Keytesville, MO for 3 years. Jack then enrolled in the University of Southern California to receive his Masters. He taught American History and the last 5 to 6 years of his teaching career was spent at St. Louis University. Jack always had an interest in American Politics and was known to ware some type of political item every day until he retired in 1986. Jack wrote an approved program on the History of Presidential Elections

C Y

which is still taught in some schools today. Jack began collecting items such as toasters, tools and political items in 1956. When the Historical Society remodeled the current location, he was one of the first on board to donate items for the public to enjoy. The first year alone he donated 656 items and to date has lost track of how many has been donated. Jack stated “The museum needed items here to open”. “I would rather put items here for everyone to enjoy than sell them”. In 1968 Jack started collecting everything that was from Macon County. “I bought anything with a name of the town or business on it” said Jack. Jack’s favorite items are the razors or scissors and pocket knives from the Macon Shear Company which went out of business in 1913. His most wanted

M K

item is a pocket knife made by The Macon Shear Company. Jack spent every Saturday at the museum for the first three years, but is now there during all open hours. “We’ve had an interesting history, that’s the reason I collected things from Macon County. I’ve paid too much for some things in auctions, but I’ve made more mistakes by not staying in the bidding then buying something for too much” states Jack. When asked what his best find has been over the years, he will tell you about the book of store records from the 1800’s out of a store in Bloomington, MO. This book was found at an auction in Bethel, MO and is in great condition as holds the detailed information of names, items etc… from the stores customers, but he will also tell you

he is most proud of all the interest the people in the area has taken in the museum and loves to see the different donations arriving daily.

The Macon Historical Society is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to Noon. Stop and see

Be Still and Know By Dani Evans dani.evans33@yahoo.com

I get really sick when I am pregnant. In order to fully illustrate that statement let me describe to you the schedule my son and I kept before I began to incubate this beautiful life within me. Monday through Friday with few exceptions we attended daily Mass together followed by one of the following activities; park, library, train ride to a museum (there are many free museums to see in DC not just politicians who are a lot more costly) or play dates with friends. We would return home for a nap and the afternoon was filled with games, crafts or the sandbox in the back yard, depending on weather. Once incubation began I had to shift into survival mode, that of myself and Joshua. Those activities went the way of the dodo and for months my heart broke for Joshua

and my perception of his boredom. I would move to play with him and lose my stomach, get him food and lose my stomach, hug him and lose my stomach. I imagine you’ve a good picture. However, through it all Joshua seemed content and happy. Joshua never once batted an eye or cried to race out the door to some activity. During one of my exhausted moments I was laying on the floor next to a pile of tracks trying to put them together for him so we could pick up the milk from Farmer McColl’s farm. I was praying that the Lord would let me be stronger soon so I could race around with Joshua like before. The partial verse, Be still and know that I am God, came into my mind. I looked at my son, who was making beeping noises as his dump truck backed up to deliver the track I needed to complete this feat of engineering. My eyes were

opened for the first time. My son loved just being still and knowing I was there trying my best and doing what I could. Even if for a few moments all I could do was sit somewhere and breath, he loved being still and knowing I was there! Once again my son taught me something about the Lord and how wonderful He is. Society will tell us that our children want to be distracted. They want to run a million places and need all of this to be well rounded and socialized. Of course, they need to meet people and play but perhaps not to the degree we are led to believe. In that moment the peace I felt in just being with my son. Knowing he was right there and we were grand train engineers together was perfect, was all he and I needed. Someday he will be 18 and spreading his wings. I want to know that I learned to be still and know him.

The afternoon was spent visiting and getting acquainted, taking photos, playing ladder ball, croquet. The small children enjoyed playing slippery slide.

Country Living by Carrie Chiarottino Next week the author of this article will be the mother of a 16 year old girl. I knew this day would come, but I guess I seen it as a day that was so far off in the future that I didn’t have to worry too much about it. Next week, the day that was so far off in the future will be here. At first, I thought this milestone of hers was going to be hard on me and I haven’t completely thrown that idea out the window. I have also thought of the plus side. We live 5 miles out of town and it will be handy to have another driver in the family. That’s the common sense side of things. I have to say it breaks my heart a little, for her to be growing up so fast. She is my oldest child and this is a first for all of us. In my heart she should still be that tiny little blonde haired girl that usually wore her hair in piggy tails. Memphis was a very easy child to raise. I have always said the good Lord made her so good because He knew He was giving her to a bunch of idiots. That was true in many ways. My sister was a huge help to me as a young mother. We had really never been around any babies and that was evident in some of the things we did. Once Chrissy was going to take her somewhere and she was still in a pumpkin seat and it was cold outside. Chrissy had

a blanket over the entire seat to keep Memphis warm. She buckled the baby seat in the back of her 2-door escort and pulled the blanket down just a little and all she saw was feet. She had buckled Memphis in upside down. Chrissy was always giving Memphis a taste of soda or lemon so she could see her pucker her face. My brother Anthony would give Memphis endless rides on the riding lawn mower. She loved to ride with him. He would take her down the road to look for a rabbit. My dad on the other hand, would give her anything she wanted. He is still very guilty of this to this day. Memphis and her grandpa Jerry has some special ideas they are going to try to pull off this year for her birthday. When I was in high school time passed so slowly. I thought those days would never end. Now, time passes so fast and grandma says they will only pass faster. I know many of us mothers have, and are, going down this road with our kids. We love them with everything in us, we can guide them until a time comes when they have to use what they have been taught by their parents and hopefully they will make the right choices. God Bless the teenagers and their parents! That’s Life in the Country.

Chrissy had a blanket over the entire seat to keep Memphis warm. She buckled the baby seat in the back of her 2-door escort and pulled the blanket down just a little and all she saw was feet. She had buckled Memphis in upside down.

International Agriculture Students are grateful for the opportunities they’ve had over the past three years.

Have A Safe July Fourth Weekend! Be Courteous When You Curse Colonel Ron Replogle, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, reminds Missouri’s travelers of the importance of safety during the upcoming July Fourth holiday. In 2011, 14 people were killed and 478 injured in Missouri over the holiday in 1,055 traffic crashes. One person was killed or injured every 9.5 minutes. Of that total, troopers worked 259 crashes, including eight of the fatalities and 130 injuries during the 2011 July Fourth holiday. Troopers arrested 168 people for driving while intoxicated during last year’s holiday weekend. The 2012 counting period for the July Fourth holiday will be from 6 p.m., Tuesday, July 3, to 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, July 4. This is a 30-hour counting period compared to the 2011 holiday counting period of 78 hours. The Highway Patrol will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) over the July Fourth holiday weekend. All available officers will be patrolling Missouri’s roadways enforcing Missouri’s speed limit, seat belt, and alcohol laws, in

C Y

addition to being available to assist motorists. Troopers throughout the state will participate in a 20-Mile Trooper operation on July 3 and July 8, 2012. This operation will include Interstates 35, 44, 55, and 70, and U.S. Highways 60 and 61. Troopers will be targeting all traffic violations, and be especially vigilant of aggressive driving violations. Motorists who need assistance or who witness criminal activity while traveling on Missouri’s roadways can contact the nearest Highway Patrol troop headquarters by calling the Patrol Emergency Report Line at 1 (800) 525-5555 or *55 on a cellular phone. The Highway Patrol also reminds the public that the Fourth of July holiday is one of the busiest boating holidays of the year. In 2011, there were no boating fatalities. However, eight people were injured in 11 boat crashes. One person drowned in the Current River in Carter County during last year’s July Fourth holiday. Additional officers will be working on the state’s waters to ensure safety. Mis-

M K

souri’s boaters are asked to do their part by remaining alert for other boats and swimmers, and being courteous on the water. With more boats on the water, it is even more important to pay attention when operating your vessel. Remember: Distractions and alcohol consumption slow reaction time. Appoint a passenger to help monitor the other boats around you. Make evasive maneuvers early and deliberately. The many firework displays after dark attract many more boaters at night. At night, remember to: Check your vessel’s navigation lights before heading out, and be sure to have spare bulbs on board. Observe Missouri’s nighttime speed limit of 30 miles per hour on the water. Slow down and take your time. Nighttime accidents tend to involve more serious injuries and damage, due to the lack of visibility. Finally, it is illegal to discharge fireworks from a vessel, so leave them in a safe place on shore.

By Laurie Schloff Cursing is controversial. Some believe that people who utter four-letter words are immoral, others call them crude, and still others view those who have a foul mouth as uncivilized and annoying. The town of Middleboro, Massachusetts was fed up with the spate of teen cursing on downtown streets and passed an ordinance that fines public cursers 20 dollars for each “bad word” they say in public. On the opposite end of the controversy, linguistic libertarians believe words are neither bad nor good. They believe free speech, including the right to verbalize rudeness, is guaranteed in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. No matter where you stand on swearing, communication specialists recommend that sensitivity to others is the key factor to consider if you have the urge to say anything stronger than “darn” or “shucks.” Here are three things to consider before you curse in public: 1. Know who’s listening to you. Cursing

serves as a verbal expression of anger, frustration, or disappointment, but your issues are not everyone’s business. customer can cost herself more than the price of a manicure. 2. Err on the conser-

vative side at work. 3. Save it for later. Excessive cursing can offend, and as a wise professor of speech once said, “Freedom of speech is not always free.”

COMMUNITY NEWS by Doris Noah MINI TOUR OF THE TOWN It is a hot Sunday afternoon in June. Perhaps we can stir up a breeze with the green golf cart on a tour of the town. Let’s go to the north end of town this week as we did the south end a couple of weeks ago. Across the bridge and just to the right we stop to admire the red and yellow cannas blooming in Larry Hosford’s traditional round flower bed. How many years he has tended this bed for all or us to enjoy? Good job Larry. Dolores Baugher has a new flag flying on Lathrop Street; t e tattered flag has been replaced at the park and that looks good as well. We notice Bob Sheldon has his new flag on the porch. The strong winds we have had in June has been rough on our banners and flags. Don and Pat Shawn have interesting landscaping at their front yard. Wonder if Don trims that evergreen bush so neatly or has it done? Their purple clematis is full of bloom and very pretty. At Raymond and LeNell Hughes’ in front of a sign stating ONLY JOHN DEERE PARKING ALLOWED is parked a Chevy truck.. That is not good. On we go and just across the Santa Fe railroad crossing is a wide variety of livestock that is due a mention. We see a couple of llamas, donkeys, a cow, a deer, a couple of alpaca and goats big and small. Ryan and Julian even have a couple of good sized pigs in a big pen south of the house. Folks, it is worth your time to go by this interesting pasture at the northwest edge of town. Too many pretty flowers beds to mention all. For a good start take a drive by the lawns of Leighton and Deb Reid, Phil and Karen Arnold, Rick and Patti Gilmore, Tish Fox, Paul and Kim Harrison, Carol Louzaway, Jessie Sappington, Linda Balfour, Dale and Betty Standley, Charles and Patsie Hughes, Ronnie and Donna Head and Larry and Thelma Jones. John and River Wright on Hickory Street keep their huge yard so trimmed and neat with all the large shade trees it would be a great park. The Rose of Sharon ( are they trees or bushes? ) are pretty this week. Shorty and Mary Hulett’s has the most blooms of any we have seen today. They don’t bloom for a long time but are really showy while they do. There is a lot more to write you: Josh and Stephanie McNeil’s little boys play fort; Glen and Mary Kitchen’s huge gray wall and new sod work is almost complete; the city park is busy with a reunion in the community building and several children enjoying the swings and fort. ( The heat is not bothering this group). It is time to head for home for a tall glass of ice water. The golf cart did stir up a breeze but it was a hot one. MAGERS/THOMPSON REUNION Annie (Thompson) Jones organized a family reunion with about 40 members of the Magers/ Thompson families from Iowa, Illinois, Louisiana and Missouri coming to enjoy the day. They had

C Y

carry in dinner at the Long Branch picnic area on Sunday June 17, 2012. Among family attending were Annie’s two brothers, John and his wife ,Ingrid, from Anacoco, La. and Loren and his wife, Jackie, from New Cambria. After the reunion Annie Jones and John and Ingrid Thompson were guests in the home of Loren and Jackie Thompson for some more visiting. CY’S TURN Tara Noah takes her nephews on a special trip the year they turn 10. This year it was Cy’s turn. Cy is a huge fan of the Boston Red Sox baseball team. He wanted to go to Chicago to see the Red Sox play the Cubs at Wrigley Field. It was great to be there and even better seeing the Red Sox win a close 4 to 3 game. Tara Noah, Pat Noah and Cy also visited the Shedd aquarium and took a boat ride on lake Michigan. Cy is the son of Craig and Julie Noah, LaPlata and the grandson of Hank and Pat Noah. ON THE MEND Cyrus Hanson has been in Columbia for surgery on his broken wrist. His sister, Gracyn Hanson, had out patient surgery on her foot recently as well. This is not the best start of summer for these children of Todd and Lori. Colton Pfeifer three year old son of Nick and Carrie (Jenkins) Pfeifer fell from a slide in his yard in Chillicothe and sustained a broken collar bone. Colton is scheduled to go to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City for observation and treatment. Kathy Kitchen is recuperating from a bout of sickness that has confined her to her home for some time. New Boston neighbors, J. W and Mary Duncan, are having tests and dealing with health issues day to day. A note or card to this couple would be appreciated; their address is box 29997 Highway C, New Boston, Mo. 63557. Baby daughter of Jamie and Ashlee (Casady) James, Ava, is scheduled to undergo corrective heart surgery on June 21, 2012 at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. Ava is the granddaughter of Phillip and Aleta Casady. LouEtta Saltsider continues therapy on her shoulder. Her recovery is made easier she says because of all the cards and visits received since she returned home. BCA NEWS President Thelma Jones called the monthly meeting of the BCA to order on June 18, 2012 at 7:00 p m. Secretary Stacey Anders read the minutes of the May meeting, they were accepted as given. Treasurer David Jenkins gave the financial report. The report was accepted.

Macon County Receives $25,000 for Resurfacing Roads On Thursday, June 14, 2012 a check was presented in the amount of $25,000 to Macon County for a Macon County Park Project. This grant was approved by the Macon County Economic Development Board and available through the

Landfill Fee Fund. The grant is for the resurfacing of the road through the park. The Macon County Park provides space for multiple recreational activities including rodeos, tractor pulls, the

demolition derby, car shows, and many other events. The park has recently upgraded their camping area as well as a new arena for equine events. The County Park is greatly utilized by the

local community as well as visitors coming to Macon for specific events or attractions. Resurfacing the road through the park provides a better and safer path through the park and helps to encourage a greater use of the park and facilities.
