Water - A Hot Topic In LaBelle LaBelle residents gather to discuss upcoming water bond issue Dan Steinbeck, Editor dan@lewispnj.com

MOTEL ARSONIST SENTENCED TO PRISON

ROSALES Dan Steinbeck, Editor dan@lewispnj.com

The man responsible for setting the fire that extensively damaged the former Canton Motel building in November 2011, was sentenced to prison. Abel Rosales, 29, pled guilty to second degree arson January 5, and was sentenced by Second Judicial Circuit Judge Russell Steele to three years in the Missouri Department of Corrections. Rosales had managed the Motel until it closed late in 2011. On the night of Nov. 6, 2011, a raging fire brought 30 firefighters from four stations. Canton Police have said Roasales was apparently offered financial gain from owner Brian Waschenbach, 39, Kahoka, for setting the fire. A trial setting for Waschenbach, also charged with second degree arson, was scheduled for January 17.

SNOW COVERS LEWIS COUNTY After weeks of above-average temperatures, the Tri-State area got a reminder of which season is still on the calendar. Snow fell on Thursday, Jan 12 postponing some basketball games, but not leading to any school cancellations, although Canton did dismiss early that day. However, there were numerous area reports of accidents or slide-offs including one minor accident north of Canton. The snow largely disappeard in warming temperatures Sunday and Monday Jan. 15-16.

ONE HURT IN SNOW ACCIDENT A Keokuk woman had apparently minor injuries in a weather related accident north of Canton Jan. 12. Miranda L. Messenger, 23 of Keokuk, Iowa, was taken to Keokuk Area Hospital by Lewis County Ambulance. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Messenger was southbound at 1:30 p.m. on Route 61, a mile north of Canton, when her 2006 Saturn slid off the left side of the road and came to rest in the median. There was no damage to the car. Assisting the Patrol were Lewis County Sheriff’s Office and the Canton Fire and Rescue.

There is a clear difference of opinion of the proposed $2.5 million LaBelle water revenue bond issue on the Feb. 7 ballot. At a Jan. 16 meeting, more than 70 people jammed the lobby of the LaBelle Fire Station to hear an engineer’s report, and to voice their concerns. Mike Logsdon, of Bartlett West Engineering told of the needs of the bond issue. “In the 1950s, I’m not sure how many of you had automatic washers and dryers. The system put in then was adequate. The usage of water has changed in the last 60 years,” Logsdon said. He showed a one-inch rusty pipe and told the crowd this was an early LaBelle water main, not a to-the-home-service line. Logsdon held up four-inch diameter samples of asbestos concrete pipe. “This won’t cause a health problem when you drink the water. Where this is a problem is when the pipe is cut and asbestos is released into the air,” Logsdon said of the asbestos concrete pipe. Logsdon said the largest of the LaBelle mains is six inches, and said the current system is subject to frequent breaks, has a limited number of control valves, and fire hydrants on undersized mains. “The new state and federal regulations call for a six-inch main on a fire hydrant,” Logsdon said. The new distribution system would be vastly different. “We’re proposing eight-inch PVC lines from the storage tank to the distribution network. An eight-inch pipe can carry up to 1,000 gallons per minutes, where as a six-inch pip carries about 800 gallons per minute. Logsdon said six-inch PVC pipes would put loops in high density population areas, and four-inch PVC would be on the rest of the system, and more than 100 new controls

would be added, as well as 31 new fire hydrants. Logsdon said the bond issue also considers the available water supply. The current water tank is more than 50 years old and its current location makes repairs and even maintenance difficult. The 50,000-gallon tank was last painted in the 1980s and stands 98 feet high. “To sandblast and paint the tower (for maintenance) you would have to encase the tower in plastic (because of the proximity to other structures),” Logsdon said. He said 30,000 gallons is needed for fire protection, which would allow 250 gallons a minute for two hours. He showed slides of rustoccluded pipes and rust and bird droppings issues among the current water tower issues. “The estimated cost to correct the tower is $176,600. If it is fixed, you would be in compliance with all safety regulations, but your volume and pressure would be unchanged,” Logsdon said. A new 130-foot tower, 100,000 gallon elevated tower located near the city maintenance building north of LaBelle is proposed. This would

increase current pressure from 42 to 56 pounds per square inch. It would also allow sufficient reserve water for peak demands and fire protection. The new tank would cost $450,000, the distribution system would cost $1,328,800, and administrative costs would be $603,100, for a total proposed cast of $2,381,900. He said the balance of the bond issue would be set aside to handle anticipated Department of Natural Resources rules that will become mandates about sewer issues. The project would be funded by USDA Rural Development loan at 3% for 33 years and a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant. Some in the crowd pleaded poverty. “This little town can’t afford this. LaBelle has the lowest median income in the County and one of the lowest in Missouri,” some said. Some questioned why more grants aren’t sought. Logsdon said they are being sought, but they aren’t as available as they were in recent years. Some wanted the grants sought first, and Logsdon said those that issue grants want to see a city’s commitment first, and said “The days are num-

bered” from these program grants. One in the crowd challenged the naysayers, implying the costs would increase if the city waits. One said if the city doesn’t approve the bond issue, improvements might be forced on the residents anyway. One asked why the Clarence Cannon Water commission tower south of LaBelle couldn’t be used. The answer: It doesn’t belong to the city of LaBelle and is for reserve for the system. Logsdon said with 300 water customers, it would add $19.70 a month to retire the 33-year debt, and a recent rate increase should cover current costs. Logsdon said another quicker, but less certain option would be the city board voting to take out a private loan, which could get the project rolling quicker than the grants and Rural Development loans. “They (private lender) would need some collateral, maybe the water tower. It would be a higher interest, If the city defaults, they’ll shut the tower, and you won’t have water service,” Logsdon said.

CAR SLIDES INTO DITCH IN LAGRANGE Slick roads may have been the cause of an accident on Hwy B and Poage Street at the north end of LaGrange. The accident occured Friday afternoon, Jan. 13. The driver was unable to exit the vehicle without assistance, but refused treatment at the scene. Responding were the LaGrange Police Department, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, LaGrange Fire and Rescue, and Lewis County Ambulance. Light snowfall made road conditions hazardous in the Lewis County and surrounding areas. Motorists are reminded to use extreme caution during inclement weather. Motorists should also carry a blanket, flashlight, a fully charged cell phone, ice scraper, and also make someone aware of their travel plans. Photo by Rita Cox

It was a busy day during a recent session of the Lewis County Circuit Court. Six area residents were each sentenced for various convictions during the session. • Charles R. Lay, 27 and brother Roman I. Lay, 25, both of Lewistown, were each sentenced for a Class B felony of attempting to manufacture a controlled substance (methamphetamine) at the LaBelle Senior Housing Oct. 22, 2011. They each received seven years in the Missouri Department of Corrections. Roman Lay had been on release from the Department of Corrections, and Charles Lay had been released from the Department of Corrections the day before their arrest. • Gregory Joe Miller, 53, of Quincy, Ill. was sentenced to five years in the Department of Corrections, with shock incarceration ordered from a Nov. 2, 2009 Class B felony for attempted manufacture of a controlled substance (meth) on Route V near U.S. 61. • Christopher C. Robbins, 33, rural Ewing, was sentenced to 10 years for the Class B felony of at-

tempting to manufacture a controlled substance (meth). This stemmed from an Aug. 5, 2010 incident where he was pursued by Lewis County deputies and found in the Ewing area with items used to make meth. Meth was also found in the vehicle. • Clifton Crowden, 54, of rural Canton, was sentenced to nine years in the Department of Correction for a Class B felony of attempting to possess a controlled substance with the intent to distribute. This stems from a Sept. 15, 2011 incident where Crowden tried to buy a large amount of marijuana from an undercover narcotics agent at Crowden’s residence. • Nicole Renae Head, 31, of Canton, was sentenced to three years in the Department of Corrections for a July 5, 2010 incident where she was arrested on a Class C felony for possessing a controlled substance. Her probation was revoked for failure to complete the Lewis County Drug Court program and ordered to serve the three-year sentence.

Va. The Libertarian candidate is James Orland Ogle III, Sacramento, Cal. Cain, Bachman, and Huntsman, have officially ended their campaigns, but their names remain on the ballot. There is some question to the validity of the election. Missouri Republicans have opted for the caucus system to choose their delegates. The Senate vote was 16-16 for the primary, and so it will

continue. Missouri Democrats took no action on whether or not to have a primary. Each of the three party ballots, as well as the Constitutional Party ballot has an uncommitted option. The 2008 election drew 1,972 people in Lewis County, and cost about $7.37 per County voter. There re 6,109 registered Lewis County voters.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

A Photo From Yesteryear

This is life by Dan Steinbeck • dan@lewispnj.com

What a lovely role to have On January 10, this cheery news was released: the symbolic hands of the world’s doomsday clock have been moved forward one minute. That means on the proverbial Doomsday clock, we as a society are five minutes away from total destruction, according to the ÅBulletin of Atomic Scientists. Just two years ago, it was six minutes to midnight on the figurative clock. At this current rate, this means society has just 10 years left. However, in 1991, the time was moved back to 17 minutes until midnight. How the doomsday clock and the Mayan calendar prediction that the doomsday will occur in December of this year, isn’t exactly clear. This is based on the threat of humanity’s imminent destruction. What a fun place to work! Probably instead of smiley stickers pasted all over there are frowny faces. Hangman must be the game of choice on office computers instead of solitaire. Sad songs are probably played all day long on the company’s recorded music system. The in-office TV is set to gloom and doom news channels. The “time-change” announcement Tuesday, was absent of what the average Joe/Jane could do, except encourage

global restraint in nuclear warfare. Also absent was how the average Joe/Jane should prepare. Still further missing from the announcement was what happens to the clock if the earth is destroyed before the proverbial five minutes tick off, who’ll reset the clock if everyone is wiped out, or what happens if there is no doomsday in 10 years. The overall tenor of the announcement, based on observations of the media clips, seemed to be “go ahead and worry and hit the panic button.” That might work - to have everyone worry. People can gather for doomsday panic parties, with plenty of brown paper bags into which they can breathe when they start to hyperventilate. The ‘what if’ game can be played until people feel their brains are mush and their heads cave in. Another option is for people to do what they can to live peaceable lives and go about their business as normal - attend ball games, visit families, help other people read, strive to be a better person and take what reasonable precautions that can be taken, and deal with things as they happen, and make things right with the Creator. After all, time is ticking....

Southern Style by Brianna Bartlett • brianna@lewispnj.com

Traits of a Southern Belle

There’s nothing more frustrating in the world than not ‘fitting in’. Through my childhood, I didn’t mind dressing differently or that I loved books more than I liked to play on the playground, but as I got older, my little quirks became sink holes on the road to acceptance. At some point, every teenager goes through a “phase” or two. I probably went through thirty trying to find out what suited me best. No matter what outfit I tried, nerd always seemed to fit me best. I didn’t like my shorts to show my legs, so I wore long shorts that cut off at the knees. I didn’t like for my pants to show my underwear, so I wore long shirts. My hair was a different color and/or style every other month. These were just a few of the things that set me apart from my peers. I’ve written my entire life, so when I got voted as the “Most Talented” in the eighth grade, I was incredibly proud that my classmates had taken the time to read what I had written and thought it

was wonderful. Later, I realized that no one had a clue what my stories were about, they simply knew that the assignment called for a one-page paper, and I had written five. I started to wonder if anyone would ever take notice of who I was as a person. Southerns are wonderful people, but unfortunately, the majority of them dress and act very similar. If you’re not country, the country don’t want you, and I had longed my entire life to be like one of the popular, pretty Southern Belles that I had seen around my school. Just before graduating, I finally sat down and attempted to figure out why they seemed so perfect to everyone. I soon realized that a Southern girl’s best quality is her ability to be natural and confident with the person God made her to be. Few people really have this trait, and some are inching towards the goal. As soon as I let go of the need to be liked, suddenly, I was. My quirk “flaws” made me into my own perfect Southern Belle.

Neighbors, relatives and friends surprised Mr. and Mrs. J.L. Fretwell Jan. 18 it being the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary. The cold weather has been very favorable for the ice harvest. The ice is 12 inches in thickness and of excellent quality. With the coming of March 1, 1927, a tract of land in this vicinity, part of which has been in the hands of one family for more than 100 years, will pass into the ownership of a stranger. This tract consists of 360 acres belonging to the estate of the late Abner Bozarth. The contract for the transfer of the land to Fred Frieden of Elgin, Ia., for a consideration of $40,000, a little more than $111 per acre, was signed this week. This body of land lies in the Mississippi River bottom some three miles south of town, and was entered by two of the Bozarth brothers who came from Kentucky and were among the earliest settlers to locate here. Two hundred acres of the tract, on which the residence of the late Abner Bozarth is situated, has never been out of Bozarth hands since it was obtained from the government. Mr. Bozarth’s grandfather, John Bozarth, entered 160 acres of it April 20, 1819, and the other 40 on July 16, 1921. The land passed to his son, Reason Bozarth, and hence to Abner Bozarth. 95 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal Jan. 12, 1917 Among those receiving letters from Christian University for good work in athletics was Fred Porter of Monticello. This was his first year at the college. Will Smith and Miss Lucy Fible filled the latter’s ice house this week getting some nine inch ice. J.B. Porter is putting up this week, hauling it from the creek near town. Arch Taylor is filling the Williams ice house

this week with nine and ten ice off of a pond. The large cattle barn on the farm of W.B. McRoberts east of town was totally destroyed by fire Friday morning, together with all the contents. The barn contained 450 bushels of corn, 25 tons of hay and farm machinery to the value of about $500. It was quite a loss to Mr. McRoberts and Mr. Anderson. Miss Lewis, a trained nurse from Keokuk, came Thursday to O.H. Dickey’s to nurse his little daughter who has pneumonia. 125 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal Jan. 14, 1887

The protracted meeting at Benjamin is still in progress; 18 additions to date. The sleighing is very fine now and all that have sleighs and horses are making good use of the snow. Water has been very scarce for the past two weeks, many having to melt snow and ice. The new iron bridge across the Fabius at this place is now completed and it is pronounced by all as a “daisy.” It is thought to be one of the finest bridges in the county. It was accepted by the Commissioner immediately on completion. We are glad to announce to the public that the Central Union Telephone Co. has again put up their wire across the river, this connecting this place with Quincy again. There is a movement on foot to levee the Mississippi along the western shore of LaGrange to Hannibal and thus make tillable all the fine bottom land between these two points now worthless on account of overflow from the river. It seems to be a laudable enterprise. Think of the wheat these lands would yield if the water could be kept off them.

Barn Quilt in LaBelle

Open ‘NOW’ in my home Shawna Hinton 17568 Holly Ave, Monticello MO

By Rita Cox rita1@lewispnj.com

Mary Jane (Pinson) Ott of Fort Worth, Texas and a former resident of LaBelle, recently installed a Barn Quilt on the family farm northwest of LaBelle. Mrs. Ott was curious as to whether any other barn quilts exist in Lewis County. Barn quilts are patterns which resemble quilts and are usually painted on plywood and then attached to a barn or outbuilding. The history of the barn quilt began about 300 years ago with the arrival of immigrants from the Rhine region of Germany. These groups included Amish, Mennonites, Lutherans and other Reform groups according to a information from the internet. Prior to the 1830s, most barns were unpainted because of the cost of paint. As paint became more affordable, the Pennsylvania Dutch began to paint and decorate their barns. Barn decorating peaked in the early 20th century. There were many artists who specialized in barn decorating and combined many folk designs, including patterns from quilt squares. In the past several years, barn quilts have become popular again and more are appearing on barns and other places. Several places have published maps which gives viewers a location and meaning. A few states have developed quilt trails including Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Iowa.

This barn quilt was recently hung on the Pinson family farm barn in rural LaBelle.

Many pictures and patterns can be found at www.barnquilts.com Mrs. Ott had seen articles about barn quilts and wanted to create something for the barn on her family’s farm. Her mother was an avid quilter and she wanted to honor her family with a meaningful symbol. The barn quilt has the names of her parents, her brother Kenneth, who died in 1999 and her name, along with a silver star to honor her father, Stanley Pinson (19162005). Mr. Pinson was a World War II veteran who served

in the army with the 36th Division in the European tour. While in Germany he led a mule train of supplies during the cover of night, to a regiment of soldiers who were out of food and ammunition. He received a Silver Star for that mission and Mrs. Ott painted the star in his memory on the barn quilt. Members of her family including nephews and cousins helped with the quilt project. Butch Patrick of LaBelle helped her get the plywood for the quilt and she worked on it while visiting her mother, Juani-

Canton UMW The United Methodist Women of Canton met Jan. 3 at the home of Kay Dodd for a noon luncheon of bean soup. Charlene Baker, President, began the meeting with prayer. Members responded to roll call with Bible verses, and Jean Calvert read the minutes and the prayer chain. Kay Dodd reminded members to read books from the suggested reading list. She plans to donate large plastic tubes to store the hand fashioned prayer shawls, stuffed bears, angel blankets, and childrens’ quilts neatly until they are sent to various places. Jean Calvert read from the Prayer Calendar, and Charlene Baker shared an Upper Room devotion about God’s love for all, reminding members to speak words of love. Patty Martin told the group about Down Country, a local organization with the purpose of informing the public about available resources and support. Martha Ann Jones led a goal setting program that asked the question, “Can we put our faith, hope and love in action for women, children, and youth?” The meeting closed with a responsive reading of Psalm 122.

Lewis County Unit of MRTA The Lewis County Unit of the Missouri Retired Teachers Association and Public School Personnel participated in several activities the later part of 2011. On October 21, the group met for lunch and a business meeting at the ONE Restaurant in Quincy with President Carol Murfin presiding. Members had brought food donations which were later given to the food pantry at the Lutheran Church in LaGrange. Mark Lueckenhoff reported that a recycling grant had been approved and that trailers for recycling are located at both Lewis County C-1 Schools as well as in each classroom. Following the October meeting, many in the group went to the LincolnDouglas Interpretive Center to hear Quincy University’s Professor Emeritus Dr. David Costigan. Then, several members viewed Wayside Exhibits in Washington Park. These exhibits told more about Lincoln’s 1858 campaign and the Lincoln-Douglas Debate. On December 15, the club’s social was held at LuLaBelle’s in Hannibal. Those in attendance enjoyed lunch and visiting. An informal program included sharing school experiences from the past, including attendance at various one-room schoolhouses. A committee met in December to plan locations and programs for 2012.

Highlights from the “Type That Binds” were given by Mrs. Higbee. We should get a Love Certificate for 2011 goals achieved. Spiritual Life Closing was given by Mrs. Higbee reading “Christmas Time.” After the meeting, our gift exchange was held and then we wrapped the gifts for the NECAC family we adopted for Christmas. Others present were Vickie Gorrell, Lue Bursewing, Betty Horner, Themla Waples, and Gloria Williams.

Progressive Neighbors The Progressive Neighbors club met Jan. 10 at Primo’s for lunch with eight members present. President Kay Dodd opened the meeting and gave the devotional.

NE Missouri Schools Cash in on Buckling up challenge

Local schools took the challenge to buckle up and made it click with students. One hundred and fifty-five schools, including 19 schools in Northeast Missouri, participated in this year’s Battle of the Belt Challenge, a competition to raise seat belt use among teens. Participating schools launched two surprise seat belt checks at each school to measure student seat belt use before and after an educational campaign. In addition, schools had the opportunity to submit a 30-second video spot to encourage their peers to buckle up. Highland was one of the five schools in the northeast Missouri area that received statewide recognition for seat belt use that reached gold (99-100%), silver (9598%) or bronze (91-94%) levels of seat belt use and will receive banners to display at the school donated by the Missouri College of Emergency Physicians. Highland High School earned a bronze banner with 91.87 percent. Marion County High School won the Northeast Regional Award for the Highest Overall Seat Belt Use achieving 98% seat belt use. American Family Insurance will donate $500.00 to be used for future seat belt education programs at the schools. Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for people 15-20 years old. Results of a 2011 survey among Missouri teens indicate 33 percent of teens are not wearing their seat belt putting them at greater risk to get killed or injured in traffic crashes. Seven out of ten teens killed in Missouri traffic crashes are unbuckled. The Battle of the Belt was originally brought to southwest Missouri by the Missouri Emergency Nurses Association and St. John’s Hospital. In 2006, the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety, in conjunction with American Family Insurance, took the competition statewide and continues to sponsor this year’s program with the Missouri College of Emergency Physicians.

NECAC to participate in Area Homeless Count

The not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation is participating in Missouri’s Point-in-Time count of the homeless on Jan. 25. On Jan. 25, NECAC service coordinators in the agency’s 12-county area will contact food pantries and agencies that deal with the homeless to get a count. The count is done twice a year. Last winter, 67 homeless people were counted in Randolph County, up from 13 the previous winter. Marion County had 33 homeless, down from 92 just 12 months earlier. Figures for the combined Lincoln, St. Charles and Warren County Continuum of Care were 1,003 for winter 2011 and 1,089 for winter 2010. No homeless were listed in Lewis, Macon, Monroe, Pike, Ralls and Shelby counties for either winter. Statewide in Missouri, the count found 1,931 homeless in winter 2011 and 1,901 in winter 2010. A compilation of the data on homelessness in Missouri, complete with the numbers recorded on Jan. 25, will be presented to state lawmakers later this year in hopes that more funding is allocated for prevention programs.

Sabrina Sparks is a familiar face at most high school events in the area, especially Highland High School. She is a photographer and a Creative Memories consultant. She also contributes photos to the Press-News Journal. Sparks has always loved to take pictures and in 2007 decided to make a part time business out of something that she likes to do. She began doing portraits and weddings, but always took photos of her girls at their summer league sporting events, and started taking pictures of the other kids and the other teams. She also began taking pictures of band events and now SPARKS tries to attend most events in the area. Her photos are posted on her website at lifeadventurephoto.com facebook site and are available for viewing. The photos can be purchased directly from the site or contact Sparks. She became a Creative Memories consultant to go along with her photography business. She uses their digital scrap booking program called Storybook Creator for all the books and collages she creates. She made several storybooks of a sporting season for parents to give to their children as Christmas presents. The storybooks are filled with pictures throughout the sporting or event season or throughout the school year and put into a book that they will have to remember that time for the rest of their lives. She is pleased with the quality of workmanship the company provides. She can also make storybooks for weddings or any event. She loves to be able to share her pictures and provide memories that will last a lifetime. She is married to Donny Sparks and they have two teenage daughters who attend Highland High School. Mr. Sparks was critically injured in a garage accident in 2009 and had his hand surgically reattached and has undergone many operations since then. Her mother was diagnosed with a terminal illness in June of 2009 and passed away two months later, so her photography business was put on hold during that time, but since then she has been busy with many photo projects and looks forward to attending many events to capture on film. She graduated with honors from Culver-Stockton College with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance and has an AAS business management degree from JWCC. Her hometown is Humbolt, Iowa. Sparks loves animals, especially horses and photographed horse shows and mounted events last summer. Contact Sabrina at lifeadventurephoto@yahoo.com or at (217) 2428955. Her business card is published each week in The Press-News Journal and she looks forward to serving the area and preserving memories.
