Low river levels are not the only concern if the recent trend of dry weather continues.

By Dan Steinbeck, Editor

There has been less than three inches of precipitation in Lewis County since

Dec. 1. There is also a soil moisture deficit from southwest Missouri to northeast Missouri, due in part to mild weather from the La Nina weather patterns. It’s not a huge concern to weather officials, or those in agriculture just yet, but without some precipitation, it could have an effect. Jayson Gosselin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in St. Louis said winter in the area is typically the driest of the seasons, and there is an average of a half-inch variation from normal. “Without a snow pack or a decent rain, it will hurt more in the spring,” Gosselin said. Gosselin said the soil moisture is near normal for the area, and said the precipitation is comparable to last year, but there has been less snowfall. Gosselin said it’s not a big outdoor

fire danger, but “it would be nice to get some precipitation in the next seven to ten days or so.” He said a fire danger could increase without the moisture. John Wheeler of the Lewis County Farm Service Agency in Monticello said farmers are starting to talk about sub-soil moisture, and said it could be a problem for farmers if it continues. But Wheeler said the mild weather and lack of precipitation has had some advantages. “It has let people accomplish things they normally couldn’t do this time of the year – dirt work, terraces, cleaning out ditches. It (the mild weather) has also been easier on livestock.” Wheeler said if the fair weather continues, he expects some farmers will get in the fields somewhat earlier than normal.

Two C-S campus buildings getting major renovations By Dan Steinbeck, Editor

Two Culver-Stockton College campus buildings are getting major renovations. The buildings are the Carl Johann Building and the Herrick Foundation Center. The library in the Johann Building is getting a new front desk, which will replace separate circulation, and reference desks. A glass wall around the former reference desk has been removed. In addition, new rooms are being partitioned in the east part of the library. Campus Librarian Sharon Upchurch said a computer room would be expanded from 16 to at least 20 units. A faculty office and a room for testing those with disabilities is part of a new partitioned area being constructed. There will also be a new area for tutoring students with special needs. In addition, an orange carpet in the whole library that Upchurch said had been there since 1980 will be replaced, as will be the wall coverings. The plans are to have the library renovations finished by the May commencement. Upchurch said in the summer, another wing of the Johann building will be renovated, which formerly served as a science area. The Herrick Foundation Center work includes reworking the Mabee Auditorium on the west

end, with installation of three rows of a C-shaped counter for lap top desks, with seating for 38 people, and portable seating for another 34 people. Joe Liesen, Executive Director of Administrative Systems and Services, said the floor and the chairs in the auditorium “were dated and worn out.” New technology is also being added to the room. Liesen said both projects are being funded by gifts from donors. The auditorium project is also expected to be finished by graduation.

A Photo From Yesteryear

This is life

Confederate veteran Newton Childress is pictured in this yesteryear photo (left). The information was provided by Curtis Farr. In a newspaper article it states that Mr. Childress died at his home northwest of LaGrange, Jan. 31, 1935 from pneumonia. He was past 94 years old. He was born in Clark County Sept. 2, 1840, the son of pioneer parents who came from Kentucky in 1839. He was survived by a brother, Clay Childress and four children, Eugene and Florence at home, Cora Ginnings, and Clarence. He enlisted in the Confederate Army in Lewis County July 5, 1861 in company B of Col. Martin E. Green’s regiment. This regiment was later known as the Tenth Missouri Infantry and served throughout the war, most of the time in Arkansas and northern Louisiana. He surrendered with Price’s army at Shreveport, La. Before leaving for the south he was in two skirmishes, one in Clark and one in Lewis County. While in the south he was severely wounded in both arms and was in the hospital for several months. An article (from Sunny Side Correspondence) published before his death stated that “although he was past fore score and is in failing health, his mental facilities are good considering his advanced age. His daughter and son, have cared for him in his delicate years, many go to him for reference of past history. He was married to Mary E. Scott, who past away more than 30 years ago.� At the close of the war and returned to the farm northeast of LaGrange, which his father had purchased during his absence and where he lived until his death.

Magic cure-all pills are in short supply Maybe this will be the year. Hope springs eternal in medical fields, which the cure for all types of cancer, heart disease, arthritis, muscular dystrophy, body odor, dental plaque, and many others will be found. One anonymous humor columnist concurs. However, there is another medical field in which very little is reported nationally about progress, especially when it comes to a magic pill. It’s not even known how many research labs are even giving one issue any serious attention. Really, a country that can put men on the moon, can make so-called lost sexual relationship problems end, and offer NASCAR racing and football, and American Idol, ought to be able to find a way to make chocolate a legitimate tool in healthy diets. Oh sure dark chocolates are supposed to be better for the heart than milk chocolate or white chocolate. Said columnist appreciates dark chocolate (and the other types of chocolate as well), but still there is that admonition from doctors, family, lawyers who write prod-

uct disclaimers, and probably even Congress not to eat too much of even dark chocolate. Presumably, too much of the dark chocolate good thing will put doctors and nurses out of work, and this economic strain on society just can’t be handled on a world-wide basis. Is there not a way that the vitamins of vegetables can be combined with the aroma of chocolate, so they don’t taste like a cauliflower cluster dipped in chocolate? Is the only way to get proper nutrients absent of fudge? Can’t chocolate calories be split like atoms and each halve filled with fiber-like benefits, before being packaged in a sampler box? While there doesn’t appear to be much of a solution on the horizon, sadder still is the lack of research funds for such an answer. Many people have infested a lot in chocolate (in the purchase thereof), that chocolate companies should have been using a portion to fund such research. Healthy, nutrient-rich chocolate research is needed. Please.

Connect – Reconnect – Renew

We are already nearly two weeks into the New Year 2012, and any resolutions that may have been formed are being fully tested. The keys to success throughout the year will be to set realistic goals and remain dedicated to their fruition. Here at Press-News Journal, we have set our goals for the short and long term in 2012, and most of them have to do with being more connected with our readers. We do realize that we are in the technology age, where seemingly at the speed of light new forms of communication are being developed and the ways to stay informed are broadening. That seemingly puts newspapers like ours at a major disadvantage. For those reasons and more, we at PNJ are dedicating 2012 as the year we explore our creativity and credibility with our readers by forming new

connections, and in some cases reconnections, as we renew our commitments to bring the best brand of news reporting within Lewis County. The process has already begun, as evidenced in this week’s edition, with the presentation of new features and spotlights. Communication and public relations are right down my alley, so I didn’t waste any time when asked to get out and about in Lewis County and interview for our “man on the streetâ€? spotlights. I not only met and interviewed an individual at Grandma’s CafĂŠ in La Belle, but it seemed to make her and her young daughter’s day. From Tara and Natalia of Ewing to Cathy and Donna of Lewistown, each believes we as a staff at PNJ are taking good steps forward by connecting with the general public and presenting real life around Lewis County.

Maywood News LaGrange News The dedication of Emma Marie Brinkman was held during the worship service on Sunday. This was to be in the service on Christmas Day, however, both of her parents had the flu and were unable to come. It was a nice service with Rachel Bringer singing “Sleep Baby Sleep” at the end of the dedication. Emma is the daughter of Craig and Nikki Brinkman and the granddaughter of Darrell and Phyllis Eisenberg. Another happy event was the attendance of Jack and Mary Triplett. It was great to have them back after a few weeks of recovery for Jack. Claire McCaskill was in the area this week and a number of folks from the area attended a reception for her in Hannibal on Tuesday evening. There was not a lot of news this week since Maywood welcomed a quiet New Year with weather like spring. I never remember this kind of weather in January and do remember those snows up to the fence posts and walking to school in it since school was rarely cancelled. Jack and Mary Triplett were lunch guests of Marvin and Loretta Bringer on New Year’s Eve. The Rohs Baptist Women met Sunday after worship service at South Union. Ronald Dietrich had surgery in Iowa City and returned home and then developed complications and is back in the hospital in Iowa City. Our college students are returning to their studies and Alex Johnson, Jon Rathbun, and David Kuhne are back to their respective colleges. Mr. Vincent Thrasher, brother of Erma Dee Jones is very ill and lives in Maryland. Mr. Thrasher was originally from this area and was a prisoner of war in World War II. Her nephew, David Barron is recuperating and on his way to recovery. He is the son Don and Betty Barron, Erma Dee’s sister.

Randy and Jean Miles had her daughter, Angela Demeree, Jessica and Jacob from Indiana as after Christmas guests. Nathan Miles called his Mom and hopes to give her a surprise on her birthday at the end of the month. Richard and Pat Cottrell visited with their granddaughter, Jessica Lasater and her son Chase from Wentzville. Robert and Connie Blessing joined Jim, Kerri and Mallory Blessing to celebrate Jim’s birthday. Viola Tracy enjoyed dinner on the 23 with her daughter Connie and son in law J Frieden and family. On the 26 she joined daughter Donna and son in law David Stice for a family get together with their children and grand children. Asked if she had begun the New Year with cabbage she said if slaw counted she had. This is to bring prosperity for the rest of the year. Christmas Day Ann Wennaker of Fort Collins, Colorado visited in the home of Larry and Dorothy Gillespie. Donald and Wilma Weathers spent the Christmas holiday in Chicago with their two daughters, son in law and grand children. They all enjoyed a lovely meal out and lots of visiting. Jerry Reid has returned from the hospital. He and Jenny celebrated Christmas with Jess and Donna Reid. Steve and Jackie Gillespie, Luke, Jordan, Channing, Sarah and their adopted two and a half year old Korean son, Samuel spent December 27-29 with his parents Larry and Dorothy Gillespie. Before Christmas Jim, Ruth and Melissa Shutwell joined Angela Solter and family and made their annual tour of the Avenue of Lights in Quincy. On New Years Eve they all had lunch. Lexie White of St. Louis spent the week following Christmas with her great grandmother, Myrna Hoteling. Tracy Hoteling came on Saturday to take her home. New Years Day guest of Russell and Phyllis Heindselman were, Larry and Dorothy Gillespie, Pan and Courtney Stewart, Jim, Ruth and Melissa Shutwell, Layle and Betty Van Horn and daughter Ann of Columbia. Flossie Foust had a fall “Each patient I see is an indiin her home after Christvidual with needs that are unique. mas and now has her arm Patients feel reassured by my solin a sling.

LaGrange Library is a Branch of the Northeast Missouri Regional Library Service. The Regional Library rents building space from the City of LaGrange for the LaGrange branch library. The Northeast Missouri Library Service serves the taxpayers in three counes, Clark, Knox, and Lewis. The headquarters oďŹƒce is located in Kahoka. If you live in Canton you pay city library tax only. You do not pay county library tax unless you own land outside the city limits of Canton. If you do not pay county library taxes in Lewis County, you would be considered a nonresident and would need to purchase a library card ($15.00 per year) to be able to use the libraries in the Regional Service. When registering for a library card you will need proof of address, something mailed to you in the last month will work. Canton residents are asked to bring tax informaon showing your tax code if requesng a library card. There is a new face at the LaGrange Library. Coleen Brown has been hired to replace the branch manager who resigned to pursue another career. Coleen is no stranger to the community; she has been in the area for many years. Coleen is a member of a local church and involved in many charitable acvies. Coleen’s past work experiences of working with children and operang her own business have made her the ideal employee for the library posion. There is another change not just at the LaGrange branch but for the other three branches in the regional service. It is called Automaon. Books and materials are being checked out by barcodes. There are no circulaon (check out) cards to write your name on. Everything will now be entered into a database. You will receive a receipt showing what books you have checked out and when they are due back. The receipts make great book marks. We ask that you please do not write your name or inials in the front pages of the books, these are reserved for the library roung informaon. Your check out history can be looked up if you would like to know if you have read the book. There are regional library policies that Coleen will be enforcing. The Atrium automaon soware will block patrons from checking out materials if they have over dues. Patrons are asked to please return library material on me. You may renew if needed, but do remember if the book is new and in demand there may be a waing list for the book. Please come in and meet Coleen. Let her know your reading preferences so she can build the best collecon for the community. The Library Service is here to serve our patrons, the taxpayers.
