Canton and Highland have long been local rivals at sporting events. That may partially change by fall, 2012. Surveys are being done at both schools to join together for different sports. “Canton would go to Highland for football and Highland would come to Canton for boys and girls soccer,” said Canton R-V Athletic Director and Assistant Principal Cindy Whiston. Larry Post, the Athletic Director and Assistant Principal for Highland, further defined the considerations as junior high and senior high football and boys and girls high school soccer in their respective seasons. (Football and boys soccer are in the fall, girls soccer is in the spring) Highland does not presently offer soccer and Canton doesn’t offer football. The schools would retain and be rivals in basketball, golf, softball, baseball, and other competitions. Post cautioned about jumping to conclusions. “Right now we’re very much in the talking stage,” Post said. “Ultimately it will come to the two school boards. I would imagine they would meet together, but I don’t know if they are required to by MSHSAA (Missouri State High School Athletic Association).” Canton students took a survey about the idea November

Ex-employee charged with theft from college

By Dan Steinbeck, Editor

A work crane that sits on the dam of Lock 20, was taken down by the Corps of Engineers last week to be renovated. Lockmaster Larry Reever said the work crane would be rebuilt. Reever said the lifting of gates on the dam as crews deem necessary is fully automated, and not done by the crane. Instead, the crane is used for maintenance work. Reever indicated it would be some time before the rebuilt crane is replaced on the dam.

A Canton man was lodged in the Lewis County Jail Nov. 17 after his arrest on a stealing charge. According to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office, James K. Crenshaw, 41, Canton, faces one count of stealing, a class B felony.

Crenshaw, a former CulverStockton College employee, is alleged to have appropriated at least $25,000 from the college over several years. The charge alleges he committed stealing by deceit, reportedly making personal purchases with the college credit card.

Censhaw is also a city alderman and currently is mayor pro-tem and is also a businessman in Canton. Crenshaw is in the Lewis County Jail in lieu of a $25,000 cash only bond.


Lewis County residents should have received their yearly county tax statement in the mail recently. County Collector Robert Veatch said the statements were mailed November 16. Taxes totaling $5,065,538.80 were billed. Taxes are due December 31 which falls on a Saturday

this year. Veatch reminds taxpayers who are mailing payments that they must be postmarked on or before Dec. 31. The office will be closed Nov. 24 and 25 for Thanksgiving. Upcoming holiday hours will be posted in an upcoming issue. There is a credit card payment option, through but Veatch

doesn’t encourage this because of the extra charge on the credit card transaction. The extra charge has to be paid by the taxpayer because the fees can’t be taken from the revenue. Veatch also encourages everyone to look over their tax statements to make sure they are correct, especially on personal property, and make

sure they are being taxed on the right vehicle and to contact his office or the assessors office. Residents should take care these matters as early as possible. Anyone with questions or concerns can call the Collectors office at the Monticello Courthouse at (573) 767-5438.

Across the country Amtrak is planning for its busiest travel week of the year, and the Missouri River Runner Service is prepared to do its part to help connect families and friends for the Thanksgiving holiday. The popular Missouri River Runner Service is adding a third coach to Train 316, the evening eastbound train from Kansas City to St. Louis, beginning Nov. 16 through Nov. 27. The additional coach will ensure there will be plenty of seating for holiday travelers as ridership last November was up 17 percent over the previous year. For those who choose to take the train, Amtrak offers several tips. The two busiest days of travel

are the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after. Allow plenty of time at stations prior to departure. Note the limit of two carry-on bags per person, and be sure all luggage is tagged with your name and address. Passengers are required to show valid photo identification when purchasing tickets, so make sure to carry valid photo ID at all times. Be aware of your surroundings, stand back from the edge of the platform, do not leave your bags unattended, and watch your step when boarding and leaving. Call 800-USA-RAIL or go to to make reservations or for fares and other information.

We’re trying to create an initiative to do this. It’s a very complex issue and you have the whole range of (from no 911 to full 911 sys-

tem) services in the state. The old 911 was funded with land lines. Now, only about 30 percent of the people have land lines. We want to shift the fee to a cell phone provision.” One in the audience asked about the degree of national polarization in politics. “I’m automatically pigeon-holed as going along with the national Republicans. That’s not always true.” Redmon said the topic of the “emerging issue committee” on which he serves, deals with so called puppy mill legislation. Redmon explained the Humane Society of the United States is against the Missouri vote and legislative changes regarding the dog breeders issue. “They have nothing to do with the Humane Society or the United States,” Redmon said. They will attack the way farmers can raise animals. They are a Vegan organization.” He said five cents of every dollar collected goes to help animals. He said they have attacked animal issues in other states as well, and are against sport hunting. The group, Redmon said, is behind wanting to change the Missouri Constitution to three-fourth of the House of Representatives to overturn an action. Redmon said two-third, where it is now, is do-able, but three-fourths is nearly impossible. Redmon told of one friend running for Secretary of State who wants to simplify ballot language so people know for what they vote. While Illinois has budget problems, Missouri has a safeguard Illinois doesn‘t have – a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget. Redmon said Missouri is listed in the top five states in the nation for fiscal responsibility, and are triple-bond rated. Redmon his day typically starts at 6 a.m., and he arrives early at work, sorts emails, reviews constituent contacts, has breakfast, several meetings, and from 10-4 is in the House chamber; committee meetings follow, various receptions are in the evening, and it is back to the apartment about 9 p.m.

Missouri is the only state in the union without a statewide comprehensive plan to identify 911 callers on cell phones. Additionally, a statewide 911 analysis report shows that as landline usage goes away so does the funding it provides to the 911 system. Missouri 911 Directors Association president, Lisa Schlottach, says, “That’s a deadly combination and a state of double jeopardy because, in many areas, people cannot be located when calling from a cell phone, and because many no longer use landline service, the landline surcharge that most 911 centers are funded by has drastically decreased.” Currently, 911 centers in more than 30 counties cannot locate persons calling with a cell phone. In 16 counties, 911 centers still cannot identify the location of a person calling from a landline.

That’s because Missouri’s 171 primary public safety answering points (PSAPs) constitute a patchwork of systems that deliver fragmented and unequal levels of service. The primary objective has been to establish a fee on the use of cell phones in order to pay for the needed technology overhaul that would allow 911 dispatchers to locate a wireless caller’s position, as well as call-taker training to ensure proper call handling. Missourians remain unaware the state’s overall 911 emergency service faces serious obstacles which threaten its very existence because it has not kept up with changes in cell phone use and technology.

911 Double Jeopardy

LOCAL NEWS National Weather Service gives winter preparation tips The National Weather Service and other agencies have released information for people to prepare for winter weather hazards. Prolonged exposure to the cold can cause frostbite, hypothermia, or in extreme cases death. This is a leading weather-related cause of death across the country (over 500 since 1979). Infants and the elderly are most susceptible to extreme cold. Freezing temperatures can also damage crops and property. Frostbite occurs when the skin is cold enough to actually freeze. A loss of feeling and a white or pale appearance in extremities, such as fingers, toes, ear lobes, or the nose are symptoms of frostbite. Hypothermia (low body temperature) can occur during long periods of exposure when the body temperature drops below 95 degrees F. A person will become disoriented, confused, and shiver uncontrollably, eventually leading to drowsiness and apparent exhaustion. In severe cases, death is possible. Wind chill is the rate of heat loss on the human body resulting from the combined effect of low temperature and wind. As winds increase, heat is carried from the body at a faster rate, driving down both the skin temperature and eventually internal body temperature. While exposure to low wind chills can be life threatening to both humans and animals alike, the only effect that wind chill has on inanimate objects, is that it shortens the time for the object to cool to the actual air temperature. HEATING SYSTEMS Severe winter storms can cut off electricity and other winter fuel supplies. Have an alternative heat source available, but be careful using fireplaces or wood stoves. Make sure they are properly ventilated to avoid the build up of carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, and deadly gas. Do not use charcoal indoors as it gives off large amounts of carbon monoxide. Check the furnace before it gets cold to assure it is in good working order. Alternative heat sources can also be a fire danger. If conditions are bad, a fire department may not be able to get out. Make sure smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms are working and have fresh batteries.

Portable electric generators have become popular. However they must be used properly. A small generator can usually only run one major appliance at a time. Place the generator outside. Exhaust from the engine emits deadly carbon monoxide gas. Read the manual carefully and follow all the recommended safety precautions. Working in cold weather strains the body, even people in good shape. Take frequent breaks and don’t overexert. Dress y for the conditions. Wear several layers of lightweight clothing. Air trapped between the layers helps keep the body warm. Protect the extremities susceptible to frostbite. Wear a hat as a large percentage of the body’s heat is lost through the top of the head AUTOMOBILES Get the car winterized before winter. Check all systems, battery, lights, tires, heater, brakes, wipers, defroster, oil, exhaust. Keep water out of the fuel tank by keeping it full. Carry a winter storm kit in the car with a flashlight, windshield scraper, paper towels, extra clothes, matches/candles, booster cables, compass, maps, sand, chains, blankets, high calorie non-perishable food. Try not to travel alone and drive in convoy when possible. Drive carefully and defensively. Pump the breaks to stop on snow or ice covered roads. TERMS The criteria differs for other areas of Missouri that are covered by other NWS offices. O u t l o o k - The Hazardous Weather Outlook will contain any and all information pertaining to potential winter storms that may occur in the latter days of the forecast. Watch - Means the risk of hazardous winter weather has increased sig-

Starting a new holiday tradition: fruitcake chain letter

If secular retail marketing can get by with starting the Christmas season early, then so can one anonymous columnist. In that vein, let’s start a new holiday tradition. Before the details of this new tradition are revealed, think of Internet chain letters with these pearls of wisdom: “Pass this on to 10 other people,” or the more guiltdriven “If you are part of the seven percent who love Jesus, you’ll pass this on to...” Here’s the tradition. Despite every natural inclination to ask “why?” go out and buy one fruitcake - not the human variety common in bigger cities, but one of those storepackaged things that when unwrapped and thanks to the miracle of preservatives, can rest unbothered on a countertop for weeks and retain much of its flavor and texture, and still repels rodents. Send the fruitcake to a friend (or an enemy) with email chain letter instructions of “pass this on to 10 people and something lucky will happen to you.” Attach your name and address. Ask the recipient to cross your name off the

address, and add theirs. Be sure to remind the recipient not to break this fruitcake chain by doing something foolish like eating the fruitcake. Although most people know, the warning hasn’t gone out for some time that tradition calls for never actually opening a fruitcake with the intent of eating it. When the fruitcake is in transit, go buy a map and push pins. Fruitcakes, like redundant emails, orneriness, and boomerangs, have a habit of coming back. When the fruitcake gets back to the original sender, mark the map with the push pins at the locations where the hapless holiday concoction has been. Repeat the joy. Of course, with the holiday shipping season, fruitcake delivery may be delayed (or it may be the only parcel that gets through). Played correctly, this game can be continued for years without ever changing fruitcakes. It would be nice if only we could find a way to electronically send a fruitcake, but on the other hand where would the three-dimensional fun be in that?


Southern Style

by Brianna Bartlett • As the Thanksgiving holiday grows closer and closer, I’ve found myself looking back on the many things in my life that I am thankful for. As always, I am blessed to have the wonderful people in my family and the close friends I have known for years, and I’m blessed to have not only the full health of my own body, but those of all my family and friends as well. These are always on the top of my list when Thanksgiving approaches, but there are a few other things I am thankful for as well. I am thankful for corn meal and the recipe from my grandmother which describes how to make dressing (because if I ever have to eat stuffing again, I think I might die). I am thankful for the farmers who make sweet potatoes and whatever creates marshmallows who work their hardest so that I may load a third of my plate down with sweet potato casserole. I am thankful for Kraft for creating their wonderful Mac-n-Cheese, which has been a Thanksgiving staple in my family for longer than I’ve been

around, and for the rolls that come in the aluminum tin that my dad and I fight over every year. Thank goodness there is still a good football game on every Thanksgiving Day because it’s the one day I’m able to get a break from my husband, and the inventor of the sectional couch can also have my blessing for having a place for all those men to sit as they watch their game. I’m blessed to hear the latest gossip from all the women of the family, considering everyone knows we women can never resist telling what we know. I’m glad to know there is an actual wheel barrow at my home just in case someone really needs to use it after eating too much. I’m also fortunate that belts come with multiple holes after gorging on my aunt’s strawberry cake. And, when I’ve had enough of pinching cheeks, football, gossip, and family, I’m thankful there is a bed I can roll myself into and hibernate away all the fat I’ve put on my body over dinner.

MoDot Ready for Winter

Missouri Department of Transportation crews are once again kicking into high gear in preparation for the upcoming snow and ice season. They are busy checking and repairing equipment, stockpiling supplies and testing emergency preparedness operations to ensure motorists get where they’re going safely when winter weather hits. MoDOT’s statewide plan of attack remains the same as in previous years. Crews will be treating the highesttraveled major roads and regionally significant roads first until they are mostly clear. All the remaining lesstraveled roads will be plowed to allow for two-way traffic, concentrating on hills, curves and intersections. MoDOT crews will again be using plows that can cover more roads in a single pass such as TowPlows, wing plows and 14-foot plows. For information on road conditions across the state, visit or call 888-ASK MODOT.

25 Years Ago Press News Journal November 6, 1986 A retired University of Missouri and University of Minnesota man will be in Canton and Kahoka Friday to help in tourism development. The Great Pumpkin has visited the second grade during the last two weeks. He has appeared in the various forms from pumpkin cookies in the lunch room to pumpkin shaped treats as prizes in contests. However, the most startling appearance of all came at the climax of acting out “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” with a surprise appearance of a 5-foot pumpkin (their teacher in costume). Friday afternoon, kindergarten through sixth grade paraded in costume to the senior housing complex. As they left, judges awaited to select one winner in each grade. The costumes were superb and so it ended up with several ties. A steady stream of customers and patrons of the LaGrange Medical Clinic attended an open house to meet three new doctors. Dr. Zakiak Ali, who had had the practice for several years has accepted a residence in Quincy and after July 1 was no long affiliated with the LaGrange Medical Clinic. Dr. James M. Daniels II, Dr. Richard K. Noble and Dr. Larry J. Davis, all of Quincy, were welcomed to the LaGrange community in an open house that drew better than 120 people, many from Lewis County, but also some from Quincy. A Canton woman has become the first women in northeast Missouri to serve a two-year term on the State Democratic Committee. Carol Ragar was elected to serve on the 24-member Executive Board of the State Democratic Committee. Ragar, a lifelong Democrat, has served as treasurer to Sen. Norman Merrell, currently serves on the Advisory Committee of the Democrats Days of Hannibal, and serves as a member of the 18th Senatorial District from the State

Democratic Committee which she will continue. 45 Years Ago Press News Journal November, 17, 1966 On Nov. 1 the dream of the charter members of the Sun ‘n Surf club of Canton became a reality with the awarding of the contract of Pascal P. Padlock Company of Oklahoma City, Okla., to construct a 300 family swimming pool. With the arrival of the engineers and equipment on Nov. 9, actual construction began. Quarterback Ken Williams has been selected most valuable player, and guard Ed Barnhart, honorary captain, of the football team. They were selected by a vote of their teammates. The Lewis County Journal November 17, 1966 Mr. and Mrs. Lindell Tieman of LaGrange received word from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N. Y., and their son, Cadet LaVerne Teiman, was on the Dean’s List for the period ending the last of October. Carl D. Rodefer, who resided near Lewistown, will retire from the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers on Nov. 23. During his 37 years with the Corps of Engineers, Mr. Rodefer worked on many different projects. Orville W. Hinkle, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Hinkle of LaGrange, Federal-State poultry grader at Stahmann Farms, Inc., Las Cruses, N. M. has been recognized by the U. S. Department of Agriculture for superior performance of duties. The Farmers Home Administration has named Marvin W. Stansbery to replace the retiring Charles W. Baldwin as county supervisor of Knox and Lewis counties. He plans to make his residence in Edina. Rev. and Mrs. Robert Scott have moved into the recently completed parsonage of the Providence Baptist Church, east of Williamstown. They are

planning an open house Nov. 20. The Monticello Chapter No. 383, Order of Eastern Star, held their election of officers Nov. 8: Mattie Horsman, worthy matron; Karl Schork, worthy patron; Wilma Bowls, associate matron; Howard Pollock, associate patron; Nanna Smith, secretary; Florence Leg, treasurer; Margaret Veatch, conductress; Ruth Ann Hudnut; associate conductress. 50 Years Ago The Press News Journal November 9, 1961 Stop sign violations continued to be the major cases appearing in Judge Robert Shanks court last week. The Press News Journal November 23, 1961 The Canton boys took their first place in the La Belle Invitational Basketball Tournament by defeating the host team, the La Belle Bears, 6127. The boys beat Ewing in the first round of the competition. Dr. Myron M. Meyer, Rabbi of Temple Adath Joesph of St. Joesph, Mo. will be guest speaker at the Culver-Stockton College Nov. 28 and 29. The subject of his address will be “The Social Philosophy of the Prophets.” The rabbi lectures on college campuses under auspices of the Jewish Chautauqua Society, an organization which creates better understanding of Jews and Judaism through education. 75 Years Ago The Press News Journal November 12, 1936 George Martin, a prominent citizen of Canton, recently made a gift to Culver-Stockton College in the form of a Steinway grand piano. This piano was given in memory of his late wife and a memoir plate bearing her name is to be put on the piano. Mrs. Martin was an accomplished musician and several years ago presented a pipe organ to the Canton Methodist Church.

Regan Bros. has secured Mr. Wood from Detroit, Mich., who will be in Williamstown once a month to give lessons on the Maxwell car so it will benefit the owner of a Maxwell to be present each time, as his lessons are instructive and much can be learned from them. 105 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal November 10, 1906

Mrs. Daisy Dean Dillman, primary teacher in the school here, attended the teachers association at LaGrange last week. Miss Mildred Hawkins, for many years a successful teacher in Canton Public Schools, was called to St. Louis by telegram last Saturday to take a place in Webster School at a salary of $3 per day. Miss Hawkins has a state reputation as a teacher and in primary work hardly has a superior. The licensed veterinarians of the county formed an association here in October to be known as the “Lewis County Veterinary Association.” T.F. Arnold of Lewistown is president and secretary. J. G. Wetzel of this place is a member. Only licensed veterinarians are eligible to membership. 125 Years Ago November 12, 1886

The Lewis County Journal We notice quite an improvement in Monticello in the way of two street lamps, one of which is located in front of Dr. J. B. Marchland’s drug store, and the other at the southwest corner of Sheriff Cooksey’s residence, owned by W. H. Nichols. Two or three more of the same kind would be quite effective in lighting our streets on dark nights.

Sheriff, Lewis County, Missouri

NAME: David Parrish JOB TITLE: Sheriff, Lewis County

Rita Cox of the Press-News Journal spoke with David Parrish about the sheriff’s department and the challenges they face.

HOMETOWN: Lewis County, MO EDUCATION: Highland High School, 1989 Culver-Stockton College, 1993 EXPERIENCE: I have been the Sheriff since 2000 after having served as a juvenile officer and deputy sheriff for the Second Judicial Circuit. I have been coming to work in Monticello since 1993 BACKGROUND: I entered the law enforcement profession because I felt it would be both a personal and professional challenge. Wearing a bullet proof vest to work makes a person think about the things they value and the things they want to protect. I believed as Sheriff a person would have a vital role in making the entire county a better place to live. As the Sheriff you are given the responsibility of not only identifying problems but you are also given the opportunity to resolve them. Being able to help someone during a tough time is still the most important thing we can do as a Sheriff’s Office. FAMILY: My wife Jennifer and I have three sons, Jackson, Noah, and Samuel, who all attend Lewis County C-1 Schools.

Tell us a little about the sheriff’s dept. The Sheriff’s Office currently patrols over 500 square miles with four deputies. The Sheriff is considered the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the county who is charged with investigating crime, courthouse and courtroom security, jail operations, and service of all court documents. Our office investigates on average over 400 reports of crime, responds to several thousand calls for service, serves over 1500 civil documents, and must provide courtroom protection approximately 150 days out of the year. The jail has 18 beds but at times is over capacity. Four full time jailers must oversee the jail operation which includes inmate medical care, mental health awareness, attorney visitation, religious education, etc. Describe a day in the life of the Lewis County Sheriff. A day in the life of the county Sheriff or deputy can be very strange. We never know what will happen one day to the next. As an example, last week we dealt with an attempted jail break, an attempted suicide in the jail, a llama on the loose, attended court several days,handled several criminal complaints, served papers, etc. Tell us some of the challenges the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office faces every day. Financial constraints continue to significantly impact the Sheriff’s throughout the state. We are the only police agency charged with holding state prisoners. Every time an inmate enters the booking room on a state charge it directly impacts the Sheriff’s budget. No other police agency pays for the cost of the inmates. When a municipal and/or state officer arrests someone and brings them to jail they are not responsible for the cost. The Sheriff is responsible. Of particular concern is the failure of state government to reimburse counties for the cost and care of inmates. Since 1997, state law mandates that Sheriff’s be paid $37.00 a day for prisoners. The state has never paid over $23.00 a day

and is currently only paying $19.00 a What kind of interaction does the day.

Support your local businesses this holiday season The movement of Small Business Saturday and Shop Local for the past couple of years is hopefully a growing trend that will last not only through the holiday season but throughout the year. Local businesses give back more to the community. For every one dollar spent at local businesses, at least half is reinvested locally. With more dollars staying in the community, more jobs stay in the community, more opportunities are available to create more jobs. More tax dollars are available to go to schools and roads. More dollars are available to keep the community safe by providing qualified law enforcement personnel. The convenience of having local merchants offers residents the ability to save time, gas and money. Local merchants offer great customer service. Local businesses value, respect and appreciate their customers. Their customers are their friends and neighbors. They are also the ones who give generously to all the local events to support the small town projects. Shop local and find the perfect gift for your family and friends. Local businesses have a lot to offer. Following is a few gift ideas and where they can be found in your hometown. Convenience stores and gas stations have gift cards, beverages, novelty gifts and, automotive items. Grocery stores for the wonderful holiday foods, gift cards and everyone loves a homemade treat. There are several local businesses that carry farm

products, new merchandise, holiday décor, cleaning supplies, auto care items, and many other gift ideas. Flowers always cheer a person and the local floral shops have real and silk arrangements and other gift items on display that are a wonderful way to say thank you to someone special. Furniture stores, antique shops, thrift stores, flea markets, auctions and holiday fund raisers all have merchandise for sale. Give a collector a special item that they will keep forever or start someone’s new collection by purchasing something that reflects their interest. Many beautiful handmade items produced by local residents can be found at various church or club fundraisers. For many of these non for profit groups, the holiday season funds support their projects throughout the year. Local shops offer apparel that has hometown team logo shirts and hoodies that any fan young or old wears to support their high school. Give a gift certificate to a local restaurant, take someone out to eat, or dine in or carry out after a day of shopping. These are just a few of the many things local businesses have to offer. While spending time shopping, enjoy the beautiful holiday decorations most towns are displaying, the friendly people in the stores, the convenient parking and the knowledge that dollars spent in the area help make Lewis County a great place to live.

Winter Travel Demands Extra Attention

Eight-year old Gavin Wendling wanted to be selective on his first hunting experience. It was worth the wait. He let two smaller bucks walk by early the opening morning of the deer season. At 8:15 a.m., a 12-point buck showed up. He whispered to his father “it’s time” and with a single shot to the heart, bagged his first deer.

Life today on farms in Northeast Missouri

Pfizer partners with customers to contribute scholarship funds to FFA and AABP programs Pfizer Animal Health announces the return of the FFA and American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) Foundation Support Program, which has resulted in more than $2.38 million in contributions to local FFA chapters and veterinary student scholarships since its inception in 2008. Eligible accounts completing an enrollment form by May 6, 2011, will receive a 1 percent rebate on all Pfizer Animal Health cattle products, excluding MGA® purchases, from Feb. 1 to April 30, 2011. The rebate can be donated to either the local FFA chapter(s) of their choice or to the AABP Foundation – Pfizer Animal Health Veterinary Student Scholarship Fund. “Connecting FFA members with their local veterinarians is incredibly valuable in educating them about the animal health industry,” says Will Fett, regional director, National FFA Foundation. “This program also provides local FFA chapters with funds for traveling to educational and leadership seminars. This has been an excellent program, and we look forward to continuing it.” In previous years, more than 1,100 veterinarians, animal health suppliers and dealers from across the country participated in the FFA/AABP Foundation Support Program, which is part of Pfizer Animal Health’s Commitment to Veterinarians, an initiative

supporting veterinarians through training and education, research and development, and investment in the future of the veterinary profession. “The AABP Foundation – Pfizer Animal Health Veterinary Student Scholarships will help ease some of the financial burdens recent graduates take with them into practice,” says M. Gatz Riddell Jr., DVM, executive vice president, AABP. “By targeting students with a proven interest in food animal practice, these scholarships allow more students to enter the field of their choice than ever before. These scholarships should also help address the need for more veterinarians in rural veterinary practice.” Support for the FFA and AABP Foundation help support the future of agriculture, states Julian Garcia, group director, U.S. Cattle Marketing, Pfizer Animal Health. “Our support to both organizations helps honor the assistance and encouragement many of our team members at Pfizer Animal Health received when they were students,” Garcia says. “Many of us at Pfizer Animal Health have been directly involved with these organizations, and now is our chance to work with our veterinary clinic, dealer and distributor partners to give back. In turn, we are supporting the next generation of our industry.”

Canning Basics You’ve tended to your own garden for years, and like most, you’ve always harvested more than you could use. You usually manage to give much of the excess away to friends and family. Sometimes, you freeze it to use in the winter. Never have you canned it. There’s too much involved in the process, right? Wrong! Canning is a fairly simple preservation process that requires little in the way of investment, just a few pieces of equipment, a good deal of produce and a bit of time. Interested? Read on to learn more about the process. You will need several good jars and lids. Make sure they are intended for canning. Ordinary jars and lids will not hold up to the heat and rigor, nor will they seal properly. You will need to boil the jars and lids to sanitize them. You will also need a blancher, colander, funnel, jar lifter and a longhandled spoon and ladle. Select some canning recipes and gather the ingredients listed. Do not attempt to make up your own recipes or substitutions. Just one mistake could destroy the whole lot. Wait until you have more experience with canning to make these types of decisions. For the best results, you should use produce that is near perfect, wash it thoroughly and prep it according to

the recipe directions. Depending upon the recipes you have chosen, you may be using one of two packing methods: hot pack or raw pack. The hot pack method requires produce to be boiled in water, syrup or juice before packing it into jars. The cold pack method does not involve heat. Generally, you pack the produce into jars and add boiling water, juice or syrup on top. Once the jars are packed, you will need to process them, either through a boiling water bath or pressure canning. The boiling water bath involves boiling jars in a water bath canner for a specified amount of time. It is most suitable for highly acidic foods, like tomatoes, pickled veggies, fruit and jams and jellies. The pressure canning method involves heating jars in a pressure cooker to a specified temperature and time. It is most suitable for raw-packed foods low in acidity. These are the basics of canning. Before you take on the task, make sure you get all of the details and follow the recipes faithfully. In fact, you might want to get the help of an experienced canner. If done right, canned foods will taste great and last long after the harvest. You can enjoy the fruits of your labor throughout the cold days of winter and well into the spring.

COMMUNITY NEWS Thanksgiving Dinner and Your Pet

Thanksgiving is a time when many homes are filled with aromas and foods not found in the house at any other time of year. For pets, this can be a time of tempting potential new ‘treats’… which need to be considered with extreme caution. Some leftover human foods can cause mild to severe reactions in pets. A variety of foods that are favorites for people can cause severe complications including pancreatitis, vomiting and diarrhea and even death in cats and dogs. Use caution in giving your pet any leftovers with bones, which cannot be digested. Watch small children around pets who may think it’s cute or fun to share special holiday foods with pets while nobody is watching, making it difficult to know what your pet has been fed should it become ill. Consider feeding your pet a special favorite food prior to when people gather together to eat Thanksgiving dinner so that your pet is not hungry when the dining festivities begin.

Bro. Jeremy and Rachel Wallace, Paul and Irene Durst,Rachel Bringer and Bobby Shepherd attended the Hannibal LaGrange Banquet in Hannibal on Tuesday evening. Marvin and Loretta Bringer went to the fundraiser for Caleb Ruhl on Saturday evening in Hannibal. Caleb was injured in an accident and is in Rusk Rehab Center. The Maywood community is invited to help decorate the large old fashioned cedar tree the church is putting up outside of the church. It will be lit and the community is asked to bring an ornament in memory of someone in your family or a good friend. Please put their names on the ornament so we can keep them from year to year to decorate the tree. A special dedication service will be held at 3 p.m. outside (weather permitting) on Dec. 3. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served inside. The names of the folks on the memory tree will be called and we cannot use glass ornaments. This is open to the entire community and we look forward to the community celebrating happy memories. If you do not bring an ornament you are welcome to join us in the celebration. This is sponsored by South Union Baptist Church. For questions, contact Darrell Eisenberg or Loretta Bringer. Charilyn Stalder spent Wednesday evening with her grandson, Quinn Stalder. Thursday evening she went to the QHS musical, “Annie Get Your Gun” with granddaughter, Meg Stalder. Jay Stalder was in the cast of the musical. They are the children of Bill and Brenda Stalder. The Veterans Parade in Hannibal on Saturday was well attended and the veterans of World War II that went on the freedom flight to Washington DC, including Paul Durst, were in the parade. Not a lot of folks knew about the fly over and that was a great surprise. Judge Rachel Bringer sang the National Anthem after the fly over and the parade was stopped for a short time. The bands included Palmyra and Hannibal High Schools. This parade has grown over the past five years and well worth the time in attending and a great learning experience for the children as they waved the free flags given out before the parade. Paul and Irene Durst attended a luncheon at Sprouts in Quincy on Tuesday of Paul’s 1940 Quincy High School graduating class. The Durst family went to Columbia on Saturday an annual shopping trip that is fun for them as a family. Irene Durst, Linda Denemark, Ruth Bowman, Denise Moore, Daryn, Amy, and Emily Bowman, Tina and Samantha Durst, Susan Knoche, and Megan Wardlow went in the morning and Ashlan Knoche met them in the afternoon. Ashlan is a college student at Kirksville. They all had dinner at the Olive Garden before heading home. The deer hunters seem to be having a lot of success in killing game, however, there have been a number of auto accidents with deer in the Maywood area this past week.

The Green Chapel Baptist Church in La Grange was the setting for the wedding ceremony of Dana Humphry and Veronica Sprague. Over 100 guests attended the ceremony performed by Rev. Mims. The reception was held at the Holiday Inn in Quincy. Dana is studying to become a minister.

Shannon a senior has three first place State Tournament titles in volleyball, soccer and basketball and Cassidy a sophomore has two in volleyball and basketball. Don Neil and Ray Job of Canton returned November 12 from a 10 day trip to the emerald isle of Ireland. They rented a car and drove on the wrong side of the Irish roads visiting areas surrounding Dublin, Killarney, Donlin and Galway. They visited Ring of Kerry, Staigure Fort, Bently Castle, Cliffs of Moher and Newtown Castle. They found the Irish to be very friendly and helpful with directions.

For three days anglers of the Ouachita River with six foreign countries represented sought prize winning fish. Weather conditions of 42 degrees temperature and 25 mile an hour winds made fishing more difficult. The winner caught 36.2 pounds of fish. Greg did not have his best record finishing 51st but enjoyed the outing. Arlene Nunn joined a church group in Quincy which toured the Holy Land for ten days. She was surprised at the number of people in this area. Alvin and Mary Vaughn entertained with a family supper their sons David and Gayle and Jim and Martha. They were celebrating family birthdays.

Lady Wildcats Fall to Quincy University The Culver-Stockton College women’s team started fast, but could not keep the momentum going in a 92-76 loss to NCAA Division II stalwart Quincy University in the final game of the Subway/ Quincy Tipoff Classic at Pepsi Area Saturday afternoon. The Lady Wildcats jumped out to a 22-8 lead on the Lady Hawks in the early going of the game. Tied at 8, C-SC ran off 14-straight points to take


a 22-8 lead with 11:56 remaining in the half. However, after a timeout by QU, the Lady Hawks seized the momentum and reeled off 22 straight points before two free throws by C-SC’s Rachel Larson ended the run with two free throws. The Lady Wildcats didn’t fold after the big run by the hosts as they outscored QU 17-11 over the rest of the half to trail 4139 at the intermission. In the second half, C-SC

couldn’t get any closer than the two-point halftime deficit and the Lady Hawks used their inside strength to gradually pull away. QU had 42 points in the paint, to the Lady Wildcats’ 18. Aneshia Starks, who netted a career-high 29 victory over HannibalLaGrange on Wednesday, topped that mark with a 33-point effort against the Lady Hawks.

Starks Scores Game-winner at the Buzzer


Culver-Stockton College senior guard Aneshia Starks sent the game to overtime with a basket at

the end of regulation, and then won it in overtime with a basket at the buzzer to give the Lady Wildcats a thrilling 81-79 victory over Hannibal-LaGrange University Wednesday night at Charles Field House. The Trojans, who didn’t take their first lead until the 3:35 mark of the second half, led 71-69 with seven seconds remaining in regulation after Ashleigh Spencer had split a pair of free throws. Starks answered by driving the length of the court and scooping in a shot with two seconds remaining to tie the game

and send the contest to an extra session. In the overtime, CulverStockton built a 78-73 lead with 1:55 left in the game only to watch as HLGU rallied to cut the margin to 78-77 on a layup by Maddie Cunningham with 24 seconds remaining. HLGU sent Starks to the free throw line where she made one of her two attempts to give the Lady Wildcats a two-point advantage at 79-77. After two timeouts, HLGU worked the ball to Ashley Wilson and she score on a layup with five second left in overtime at 79.

Working without timeouts, Starks took the inbounds pass, drove the length of the floor, and duplicated the end of regulation feat by scooping in the game-winner as the buzzer sounded. Starks, who scored all 10 points for the Lady Wildcats in the overtime, finished with a gamehigh and career-high 29 points. She also grabbed six rebounds, dished out four assists and had three steals. Jessie Logsdon added 18 points and five rebounds, while Emily Lay was also in double figures with 10 points and five caroms. Bailey Owen came off the bench to grab a team-high nine rebounds. That was more than enough to overcome the HLGU duo of Wilson and Trenee Thornton, who finished with 22 points each. The Lady Wildcats (52) will play in the Subway/ Quincy Tipoff Tournament this weekend, Nov. 18-19 in Quincy, Ill. C-SC will play St. Joseph College on Friday at 5 p.m., and the host school, Quincy University at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
