A new re-sale store opened Nov. 1 in Canton. Re-New-All is now open six days a week in the former Niemann Foods building at 515 Lewis Street. According to Dianna Clark, who owns the business with husband Kirby, the name comes from the store’s offerings. “Recycle, new stuff, and all kinds of things,” Mrs. Clark said, adding that in addition to resale of items, there are consigned items and surplus items. There are currently 17 vendors already in the business, and the merchandise, which changes constantly includes surplus office equipment like chairs and filing cabinets, tool boxes, recycled kitchen cabinets, artwork, furniture, and glassware, among other items. A gun shop which will be called Big Boys Toys Gun Shop, will be added soon. There are work areas for vendors or a regular fix-it person to fix items that will be displayed. A former freezer unit of the store will be used for sandblasting and painting furniture. Various classes will be offered, including scrapbooking Nov. 28 at 6 p.m. and Christmas card making Dec. 3 at 10 a.m. An upholstery class will be offered in January, with a home economics class coming at a time to be announced.

LOCAL OPPORTUNITIES TO HELP CHILDREN THIS CHRISTMAS Local opportunities are available to help children at Christmas Approximately 30 needy children are still available to be adopted for the Lewis County Adopt-A- Child Christmas campaign. “So many organizations have already adopted children,” said Judy Eaton of NECAC. “We just have a few more children that need some special care this Christmas season.”  Each adopted child may receive approximately five to

six gifts. Many of the items requested are basic, such as clothing.   Children can be adopted by community groups, churches, and individuals.   Those interested in adopting a child for Christmas is may contact Stacey Nicholas at 573-406-9082 or rsvp@  Wrapped gifts need to be returned to Immanuel United Methodist Church the week of December 12. This year, the Lewis County Adopt-A-Child Christ-

mas campaign will assist in providing Christmas gifts to nearly 130 local children. Dollar General in Canton is making it easy for the community to support the annual Adopt-A- Child Christmas campaign. A Christmas tree at the front of the store contains tags with gift suggestions.  Lewis County residents who are unable to adopt a needy child this Christmas but would like to make Christmas a bit brighter are encouraged to select a gift tag and shop for

that item. After checking out, the item will be bagged and placed in a gift box.  All purchased items will be donated to Lewis County children who are in need this holiday season.  “We are always grateful for the community support this program receives,” said Judy Eaton, NECAC Community Support Coordinator.  “Dollar General is a wonderful example of the caring businesses in this area.  Their efforts make Christmas special for a number of children.”

He did not know if either board would take an official vote that night. “In the eyes of MSHSAA (Missouri State High School Activities Association), December 1 is when you have to have an application in place,” Post said, adding MSHSAA knows there is interest in the districts combining for football and soccer. Highland offers football and Canton offers soccer.

Canton board discusses broad topic range By Dan Steinbeck, Editor

A variety of topics were on the agenda of the Canton aldermen Monday, Nov. 21. These included notice of new districts, business proclamations, a tourism project, radio read meters, and discussion of a contractor’s license. Aldermen passed an ordinance setting new wards, a change made necessary by the 2010 Census. The new wards aren’t as cleanly divided as past lines. In general, the first ward is the south part of town bounded on the west by South Monticello road and Marks Road; on the north by Clark Street, except between Fourth and Second Streets where the north boundary is College Street; the second ward is the north part of town, with the south border of Clark Street at First, fifth through Seventh Streets; College Street from Eighth to 10th Street; and the alley between College and Bland and 10th and 11th Streets, and then White Street from 11th Street to Pizza Hut. Ward 3 is bounded by the west city limits, White Street to 11th Street; the alley between Bland and College and 10th and 11th Streets; College Street on the North from 10th to Seventh Streets; The east border being from Seventh Street between College and Clark Streets; Clark Street from Seventh to Ninth, and Ninth Street to Washington Street and Marks Road; and on the South McRoberts Road. Aldermen authorized

the Public Works Department to work on a trails project east of Second Street, to be paid for by the Canton Tourism Commission. Mayor Jarrod Phillips announced he has signed off on another trail project of the tourism on the levee, paid for largely with a Missouri Department of Transportation grant. The board began initial planning for seeking bids on a solid waste contract, which expire in March 2012. There are several factors the city is considering, including whether or not to continue to keep garbage trucks out of alleys. Public Works Director George Hausdorf reported about discussions with potential vendors for radio read water meters to save employee time. No action was taken. The board referred to the Planning Commission whether the city definition for home based businesses should include Internet businesses. Jeff Arp of MIRMA reported some grants totaling $6,026 for police equipment had been granted. April 3 was set as the municipal election, where three aldermen will be elected. The board passed a resolution, allowing the City to advertise discarded items and vehicles on the website, and passed another resolution approving intergovernmental funding for a new police vehicle, using Suspended Imposition of Sentence fines.

struction. Hausdorf talked about a pilot project to use microbiology instead of chemicals for some waste water. Engineering costs are being split with Wayland and Ewing. Matt Miller was sworn in as a police officer, and in closed session, Officer Cory Bennett was promoted to Sergeant.

SURE Sign Up

Lewis County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director John Wheeler said the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) program enrollment for 2010 crop year losses began November 14, 2011. To qualify for a SURE payment, the producer’s operation must be located in at least one county that had a Secretarial disaster declaration or is contiguous to a county with the designation. The producer must have suffered at least a 10 percent production loss that affects one crop of economic significance. Producers with agricultural operations located outside a disaster county or contiguous county are eligible for SURE benefits

if they had a production loss greater or equal to 50 percent of the normal production on the farm. In 2010, all Missouri counties received a Secretarial Designation or were contiguous to a designated county. To meet program eligibility requirements, producers must have obtained a policy or plan of insurance for all insurable crops through the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation and obtained Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) coverage on non-insurable crops, if available, from FSA. For more information contact the Lewis County FSA office at 573-7675274 or visit the website at http://www.fsa.usda. gov/sure.

Welker directs film documentary

Lewis County resident, Jerod Welker, along with Andrew Sheeley, had a film they directed shown at the St. Louis International Film Festival on Nov. 16 in the Tivoli Theater in St. Louis. The film documents Chief Wana Dubie, a 2006 Libertarian candidate for state representative and marijuana legalization advocate, and his activist efforts during the early 1990s that would see him change his name, secede his property from the country and ultimately declare war against the United States. Filmed on location throughout Missouri, the movie also features interviews with residents, reporters and government officials to give a fair and fascinating examination of all of the events surrounding Wana Dubie’s efforts.

Director/producer Welker said that the movie is simply the incredible true story of one man’s attempts to legalize marijuana by any means necessary. The film also features an old fashioned bluegrass soundtrack from the St. Louis based folk group Folkin’ Bluegrass. Shot over the course of two years, the film was made with equipment and crew from Webster University in St. Louis, with its budget paid out of pocket by the filmmakers. Welker said the the buzz has been building since the “Wana Dobie’s War” trailer posted on YouTube earlier this year. Welker also said the premier went very well with a good crowd reaction.

This is life

A Photo From Yesteryear

by Dan Steinbeck •

At the sound of the tone...scream Those late night TV crime shows begin much the same. There is an idyllic scene, perhaps involving family or kids, or travel. The accompanying music starts somewhat pleasant, although as it gets louder it gets spooky. Suddenly the haunting music swells and a creepy looking figure - looking somewhat like a U.S. Congressman – appears. In the rush of the music it comes to a stop - DA-DA--DA, and as the show goes to commerical break, there is a bloody body, and the music stops. Great. It’s bed time, and the show’s opening shouldn’t have even been watched. The house with the TV is eerily quiet. Did that shadowy Congressman end up in the next room? That sudden cold rush against the bare ankle, is that the barrel of an unknown revolver? Be still. No, it’s the dog’s nose, alerting she needs to go outside. Resist all desires to scream. The family is asleep, and a healthy, well deserved scream would alter that for all the household, plus neighbors three houses down. But now, great again. The dog needs to go outside, where it’s dark. The dog who in its own right is a weenie in the area of bravery wants to go out.

Master, you have to take her out. Only you and the ghostly music-maker are awake. Outside a gentle wind rustles leaves. Or was that foot steps? That haunting music is stuck in your head like an insect - or a Congressman - touching a fly strip. Is there going to be violence here? After a few anxious minutes of the dog deciding one yard isn’t good enough for her bathroom ventures, she heads to another one that is better lit. Still that background music plays in the head. Won’t someone hit the stop button and put on a fun tune? Inside, the dog immediately goes back to sleep, apparently not needing a lullaby. The haunting music is over, and TV police are analyzing the evidence. Fifteen minutes into the hour show, the haunting music edges back into the sound from the idiot box. Behold the suspect hasn’t returned to Washington D.C., or been caught by the TV police. He brings with it the minor key music. Seven victims later many fewer than most Congressmen have - the show, the music ends for the week. Good night. Sleep well. Yeah, right.


To The Editor To The Editor: I ran across this the other day and want to share it. We all have the responsibility of helping the economy back on its feet. Asian factories are kicking into high 
gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods – at the expense of American labor. This 
year we can make it different. Americans can give the gift of genuine 
concern for other Americans. There are things made by Americans. Think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in 
a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper? 
How about gift certificates 
from your local American hair salon or barber? 
Gym membership? It’s appropriate for all ages thinking about some 
health improvement. 
Who wouldn’t appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned 
detail shops and car washes would love to sell gift certificates.
 Are you an extravagant giver who plunks down 
the Benjamin’s on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that gift 
receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or 
driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.
 There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants offering gift 
certificates. If your intended isn’t the fancy eatery sort, what about 
a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint? This 
isn’t about big national chains, it’s about

supporting your home town 
with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open. How many people couldn’t use an oil change for their vehicle, at a shop run by the American working guy? Mom would love the services of a 
local cleaning lady for a day. 
My computer could use a tune-up, and I know I can find some young guy 
struggling to get his repair business up and running. For something more personal, local crafts people 
make jewelry, pottery, and other items. 
Plan holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave

 Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so 
China can build another glittering city. Christmas is about encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow 
their dreams. When we care about other Americans, we care about our 
communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn’t imagine. And foremost, keep Christ in your Christmas.
 This is the new American Christmas tradition. LYLE N LUDWIG Sr., Canton, MO

Backward Glances

From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers

25 Years Ago Press-News Journal November 20, 1986 One of the first deer felled in the 1986 firearms season was a 13 point buck shot by Earlene Roberts. She checked it at 6:30 a.m Saturday morning at Edmonston Co-op in Ewing. She said it’s the biggest deer she has killed in the eight to ten years she has been hunting. A dinner honoring Jesse Franks on his retirement from the U.S. Postal Service was given by his co-workers Nov. 14. Roy and Adebel McDowell recently celebrated 50 years of marriage with many visitors in their home marking the occasion. 45 Years Ago The Canton Press-News November 17, 1966 The most successful deer season in the history of modern deer management closed Nov. 18 with 273 fat and thrifty animals checked through the station at Monticello. This firearms kill represented 169 bucks and 104 does. Early this week neighbors and friends converged on the three farms of Mrs. D.P. Wiseman, Mrs. Jeanne Wiseman and Mrs. John Wiseman. These men brought tractors, combines, trucks and grain dryers to harvest 157 acres of corn standing in fields since the death of John Wiseman Oct. 13. Wiseman was fatally injured while hunting on his farm near Maywood. He had farmed land belonging to his mother and grandmother as well as his own. Soybeans had been done in late October. On Sunday, Nov. 20, the First Baptist Church will climax the year of Centennial Observances with a Service of Fellowship, designed especially for the community. Musical support is provided for the University of Missouri football team by the 160 students who are members of the university’s marching band, Marching Mizzou. Area students in the band are Louise Whiston and William Haller, Canton.

Lewistown voters on Nov. 1 went to the polls and favored Great River Gas Company service by a majority of better than five to one. The vote was 148 yes and 28 no. Leland Tippett, soil conservationist with the Soil Conservation Service, has recently been transferred to the Lewis Soil Conservation District. Tippett will be working out of the Monticello office. He was working with the Soil Conservation Service in Shelby County prior to his transfer. He is a native of Memphis, Mo., and he and his wife and daughter will reside on the Linton Jenkins farm southeast of Monticello. The annual meeting of the Williamstown MFA Exchange was held Nov. 3. The following were elected to the board: Howard Pollock, Hilburn Fishback, Wade Weber, Lois Hudnut, Robert Legg, Robert Lillard and Michael Hudnut. 50 Years Ago The Canton Press-News November 30, 1961 The 1961 deer season in Lewis county was very successful according to a report by Phil Rice, District Conservation Agent. One large buck, estimated at 270 pounds, killed by Earl Hunziker, hunting north of Canton with a bow and arrow. About 6065 bucks were killed in the county during the firearms season Nov 15-21. Canton hunters reporting deer the first day included Basil Ferguson and Harry Dunlap, Donnie Raines, Henry Henrickson, Lester Linson, Jim Carskadon, Alvin Jacobs, Charles Long, Spencer and Buckley McCutchan, Carl Baker and Chet Spurgeon. Other hunters killing deer in various parts of the county do indicate the herd has spread over the entire county. Those reporting were: Williamstown- Noel St. Clair, Richard Brown; Lewistown- Richard Lay, John Seals, Silas Carter, Merle Seals, Jack Seals, Fred Raleigh. Ewing- J.P. Wallace, Francis Krueger, A. Guarino, Junior Stone.

LaBelle- Sammy McCracken, Ray Eperson. Maywood- Gilmer Johnston, Raymond Jones, Roy Waterman, LaGrangeHarold Novinger, Gayle Bradshaw, Floyd Cox and Wayne Maples. 85 years Ago The Lewis County Journal November 1926 Emmett Briscoe and Bunt Jenkins were delegates from the Baptist Church here to the dedication of the gymnasium at LaGrange College Tuesday. The name of A. P. Porter was given the structure in memory of one of the largest contributors to the college and its interests. Another son arrived Monday, Nov. 22 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Martin. His coming completed an even dozen children in the family. The city trustees of Canton purchased for a sum slightly under $500 of the General Manufacturing company of St. Louis, a fire fighting outfit to be delivered early in January. Their purchase consists of a six cylinder International truck chassis, all complete; pump; three ladders, 30, 20, 10 foot; 600 feet of hose; a chemical booster tank and etc. 95 Years Ago November 1916 The Lewis County Journal The ordinance of baptism was administered last Saturday afternoon at Fuqua Ford to those that made the confession under the recent preaching of Rev. Todd. Julian Thompson and wife are rejoicing over the arrival of a 12 pound boy in their home since Monday. Julian is stepping over fences, gates and such like. Poor crops and hard times seem to have no effect on the people in this country. There has been so many new autos bought this year and still buying. N. Ford and son have sold three new cars recently, one to John W. Hawkins near Deer Ridge, John West of LaBelle and Nick

Harris of near Williamstown. This makes 45 in all. Mr. Ford and son are hustlers and are selling the famous Chevrolet. The old Baptist Church, which has been a landmark for some 46 years, has been torn down and the new building is rapidly taking form. Most of the old lumber has been used in the construction of the new building. The new building is a nice large church and will accommodate about 300 people. The basement is under the whole church. The belfry, will have a 1,140 pound bell and the basement is to be supplied with chairs. Consolidated District No. 4. 105 Years Ago November 10 1906 The Lewis County Journal

Christian University notes: The college furnace goes on a strike once in a while-everything is astir around the college this week getting ready for the rally next Friday. The debt is all paid off and the friends of the school are going to celebrate the affair by taking an afternoon and evening for celebration. Eminent speakers, singing, toasts, fireworks, etc., are planned. Among the speakers, Judge C. J. Scofield, Carthage, class of 1871; Congressman-elect J.W. Alexander Gallatin, class of 1872; among others. Mrs. William Fible, a pioneer of this county, died at her home in Lewistown, age 74 years. Prosecuting attorney N.W. Simpson of LaBelle has bought of Alfred Shouse the Christie property in this place and we are informed will move here sometime next year. 125 Years Ago November 26, 1886 The Lewis County Journal
