Two arrested on drug charge March 11

Two Monroe City residents were arrested Sunday night in LaGrange on a drug charge. Ruben Gene Williams, 30 and Christina M. Canella, 43, both of Monroe City are charged with the conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, a class C felony. The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office deputies initiated an investigation after receiving information the two were buying pseudo ephedrine pills to assist in the manufacture of meth. Bond for each is $50,000. Williams is also wanted in the state of California for burglary and theft and is on parole from the California Department of Corrections. Assisting the Sheriff’s Office were the Northeast Missouri Narcotics Task Force and the LaGrange Police Department. Further arrests are pending.

Two hurt in onecar crash March 6

Two LaGrange residents were injured in a one-vehicle accident March 6 on Route C, seven miles southeast of Monticello. Driver Norma L. Farr, 72, was taken by Lewis County Ambulance to Blessing Hospital with apparently moderate injuries. Her grandson Jacob K. Farr, 12, of LaGrange was taken to the same hospital by private auto with apparently minor injuries. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said N. Farr’s westbound 2010 Toyota went off the right side of the road, struck a culvert and overturned. The vehicle was totaled. Both occupants wore seat belts.

Ex apartment site to house community garden BY DAN STEINBECK EDITOR

The site where a recently razed Canton apartment house stood could soon be a community garden. Project spokesperson, Third Ward Alderman Sharon Upchurch said that the project was born out of a study about a year ago to study hunger in Lewis County. A group of Culver-Stockton students did the study. While commodities are distributed through the Canton First Baptist Church and the Council of Churches maintains a food pantry at the Canton Christian Church, the students found there wasn’t a

good resource for fresh fruits and vegetables. Canton dentist Dr. C. Clark Todd offered two lots once an apartment at the corner of Sixth and Clark Streets. That was accomplished before March 1. Demolition contractor Bud Campbell brought composted hog manure and spread it on the site, and left a pile of bricks, which can be used to make pathways, or separate garden bed plots. While the intention of a steering committee is to allow the plots to be used this spring for growing crops, there are several issues the committee is still discussing. These include possible cost to participants (to pay for water on

the site), the number and size of the plots, \whether fencing will be needed or can be afforded, and whether they will be individual plots or co-operative effort with various plots designated for fruits, flowers, vegetables or herbs. A meeting to discuss these issues, to which the public is invited, is tonight (Thursday, March 15) at 7 p.m. at Primo’s restaurant. A shed on the property was not razed and needs some work that Upchurch is suggesting the Culver-Stockton Extreme Dome Makeover might consider. “We have a commitment to the city it won’t be used as a weed patch,” Upchurch said.

She said the Canton R-V FFA and some other youth service clubs might be participating to help. Upchurch said the project has already garnered some interest, from both experienced and beginner gardeners. She said a lot of seed has been donated, that will likely go to the first participants. “This is an experiment. I’m excited about it. I see it as a fun thing,” Upchurch said, adding that although she has another garden, she might consider buying a community garden plot for the social aspect and to gain advice from gardening experts.

A LaGrange man was sentenced in February to federal prison from a charge from 2011. Marcus Alan Mays, pled guilty to a felon in possession of a firearm. Mays was indicted by a federal grand jury on the

charge June 14, 2011, but the offense itself occurred in December, 2010. Mays was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal at the sentencing and ordered to serve 18 months in the Bureau of Prisons, and given two years of supervised release (parole) after that. Mays was ordered to not posses any firearm or weapon, cooperate in any DNA collection, participate in an approved domestic violence program, not to patronize businesses where more than 50 percent of the revenue is from the sale of alcoholic beverages, submit to a mental health evaluation, and submit to searches of his person, residence, nearby structures, office or vehicle, pay a $100 fine, and forfeit a Hi-point C9 pistol and ammuni-

tion. Mays owned the dog in a highly-publicized 2010 shooting of the dog Cammie, an American bulldog by LaGrange Police. Mays was fined for failure to register the dog and failure to muzzle or leash. Mays had pled guilty in 2006 to a class C felony of second-degree domestic assault for which he received a suspended imposition of a five-year prison sentence and two years probation. In January, Mays filed a civil rights violation lawsuit in U.S. District Court, eastern District of Missouri, against he city of LaGrange and LaGrange Police Officer Doug Howell and is seeking compensatory damages, punitive damage, and attorney fees.

Community Center plan lacks initial support BY DAN STEINBECK Editor

A public appeal to seek commitments for turning a former Canton business building into a community center has fallen short in anticipated support. The Canton Community Betterment Group was asking if the public would be willing to commit to a minimum of $6,500 of private funds to cover utilities for the twostory brick building at Fourth and Lewis Streets, which formerly housed the Saturday Store. Joe Clark, who chairs the CCBG, said early indications show there was less than $5,000 that the people would be willing to commit to the project. The costs to maintain the building would likely

increase in subsequent years. This means, barring a change before hand, an on-line auction will continue for two weeks, possibly starting in midApril. Had the commitment goal been reached, the building would be used as a “home” for the Canton Area Arts Council, and possibly various service clubs and would also be rented for receptions. Clark said the CCBG will further develop a “plan B” at an early April meeting, if the building doesn’t sell at the on-line auction. William and Lynn Fox recently donated the building after their move from Canton, Missouri to Canton New York several years ago.

Canton board decides solid waste issues Canton aldermen discussed solid waste removal and traffic signs in the Feb. 21 monthly aldermen meeting. After a discussion of trash collection at curbsides only or curbsides and alleys, the board voted to allow curbsides only trash collection. Rates were reviewed and the board awarded the low bid to Allied Waste. Mayor Jarrod Phillips was authorized to sign the contract with Allied Waste. The board agreed to publish a public service

announcement regarding the 95-gallon totes for trash collection. Public Works Director George Hausdorf discussed purchasing a power rake, a 15-foot Brush Hog, and a sickle mower with the proceeds of the sale of a road grader, which is expected to bring a minimum of $10,000 at a government auction site. The three department heads will form a committee for a safety review of the city property, as per insurance requirements. Monthly safety meetings

Think you don’t need flood Think you don’t need insurance? flood insurance? Add this valuable protection before its too late. Flooding can happen almost anywhere, any time. It might be the result of days of torrential rain. Or quickly melting snow. Or failed flood control structures like levees or dams. But the majority of property owners’ policies do not include coverage for losses caused by flooding. That’s why American Family Insurance is a participating company in the National Flood Insurance Program. There’s a 30-day wait before a flood insurance policy takes effect, making it important to consider this coverage now. So call or visit your American Family agent soon to see if you’re eligible to purchase this coverage. The weather won’t wait. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is managed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Sallie saw it all—at Gettysburg you can read her dog-witness account. Sallie was a soldiers’ pet, a mascot of the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry.

The men got her as a pup, a roly-poly, feisty fighter, a loyal cur that cut her milk teeth on a saber. Sallie was a female, but she didn’t cater to women, to Rebels or Democrats.

Fitness revelation no new thing, nor personally effective BY DAN STEINBECK EDITOR

There is a new get-thinquick infomercial that is now being advertised with the term “muscle confusion.” Of course, EVERYONE who uses said product not only loses much weight, many of them get the stomach wrinkles indicating the presence of abs. (By the way, why do we never hear of a cream to lose those nasty deep stomach ridges caused by losing weight and commonly called “ripped abs”)? The point is the term being used is “muscle confusion.” Supposedly, it works something like this. For a few days you lift weights, then for a few days you run multiple short distance wind sprints - say from Lewis County to Cleveland then for a few days you do weird pushups where you sway your body forward at the time you are pinching a two-liter soda bottle between your knees, all to work different muscles. The next time, you do gymnastics, such as the one-handed rings. Well no wonder the muscle is confused, but for most normal people, isn’t the tendency for confused muscles to say “forget it.” We’ll try again the next time you make a New Year’s resolution?” Of course you have to order this 213 CD set that tells you how to do a different exercise each week, and of course you have to pay for it. Maybe this program works, but for one anony-

STEINBECK mous columnist “muscle confusion has had little benefit. Said columnist will watch a TV program and suddenly decide to jog around the block. The muscles say “Hey, what’ going on? We thought you were watching Walton’s TV show 48-hour marathon. We were comfortable in the recliner.” Or when he suddenly decides to lift a set of encyclopedias to carry them upstairs, the muscles in the arms, legs, and gluteus maxis say “You’ll hear from us tomorrow.” And there is nothing like tossed salad, with a triple fudge brownie for dessert or a deluxe mega cheeseburger and a Diet Coke to create muscle confusion. Shouldn’t the muscles be mature enough to figure it out for themselves which are nutrients and which can be properly disposed? Better yet, isn’t there some canceling out of the good and bad foods? Maybe the columnist is going about this the wrong way, but he already has active muscle confusion, but it’s not leading to ripped abs.



Words have been described in a million different ways. Some, like myself, believe they are a breath of life while others don’t hold them to as high a regard, but no matter how a person regards words, virtually everyone must use them on a daily basis. What makes words so entertaining to me is the different ways people use them. As I was having a “Girls Day Out” with a friend and her seven-year-old daughter, we began to discuss my Valentine’s present from my husband, a Malshi puppy named Ryley. The more I spoke, the more confused the young girl seemed to look. We were simply talking about my puppy, so I couldn’t understand why she appeared as though I were speaking in another language to her. It wasn’t until she leaned over and asked her mom a question that I realized the source of her confusion. “Mom, what is a ‘dawg’?” After having been here for around six or so months, I’d come to the conclusion that my speech wasn’t all that different from everyone else around this area, so I hadn’t worried as much about the way I said par-

BARTLETT ticular words. But young Patton’s question made me think, ‘What else do I say that sounds ‘funny’ to the residents around Lewis County?’ I believe in always saying ‘Yes ma’am’ and ‘No sir.’ If I know a person’s last name, I call them by Mr./Mrs./Miss and their last name, and when I don’t know their last name, I address women by calling them Miss and then saying their first name. Almost all my ‘O’s’ are ‘AW’s’ and when I pronounce anything with an ‘I’ in it, the letter seems to drag on for days. And “Bless her heart” is in almost every sentence I speak. I’m sure there are a multitude of other random things I say that take Lewis Co. residents by surprise, but as long as they can understand me, I believe I’ll do just fine.

BACKWARD GLANCES From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers 25 Years Ago The Press-News Journal Mar. 19, 1987 Canton board of alderman passed a lengthy ordinance Monday night. The ordinance, regarding Canton being a flood plain and defining the boundaries and terms, is required by the federal government so residents may purchase flood insurance. The dramatic arrest of an Omaha, Neb. man Thursday morning, Mar. 12, in Canton turned out to be an over-exaggeration from first reports. According to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department, a hitch-hiker, who the Missouri state Patrol identified as Daniel Patrick Demskie, has been picked up by George Knott. Knott reportedly left Demskie at a truck stop without unloading. Demskie is said to have reported to authorities that Knott had an automatic weapon in the truck, and was wanted for murder and robbery. Some nine years later, after parking meters were discontinued in Canton, the poles which long supported them are being removed.

Special emphasis was placed on the day because it was the 100th anniversary of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, and appropriate ceremonies marked the occasion. The fourth anniversary of the Civilian Conservation Corps will be celebrated by Company 3736 at Canton Sunday, April 4.

A new dairy company has been organized in the city to be known as LaGrange Pure Milk Company. The officers are Dr. William Ellery, president, and Albert Robinson, manager.

The horse and buggy that was stolen from the hitch rack in Lewistown Wednesday night, Mar. 20, was found Friday morning by Dr. Turner, 20 miles southwest of Newark and was returned to the owner, H.J.

There is no doubt that the horse was stolen, at least it was driven away by someone who wanted to get out of the county and took that method of getting away. 125 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal Mar. 25, 1887 Our people are catching some very fine catfish out of the Fabius here.

US Army Corps of Blessing offers Eng. seek volunteers free Colorectal Cancer screening for placement of fish Colorectal cancer is one cancer a person can prevent. That’s why the American Cancer Society recommends screening for everyone age 50 and above, but most local physicians recommend screenings starting at age 40 due to increased number of diagnoses in younger patients. The Blessing Cancer Center makes it easy to get screened. Free colorectal cancer screening kits will be distributed beginning at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 27, at the Blessing Cancer Center North Entrance. No registration is required. Only one kit per person is allowed and a consent

form must be signed. After completing the screening, drop off or mail back the kit (per instructions) to learn if there is a risk of colorectal cancer. The best method to detect colorectal cancer is a colonoscopy. The screening kit is a first step in maintaining colon health and is not intended as a substitute for a colonoscopy. Visit the website at for information about services offered at the Blessing Cancer Center. For more information about the screening, call 217-2238400, ext. 7718.

structure at Mark Twain Lake

Many Christmas trees have been collected during the eighth annual Christmas tree recycling program. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is now seeking volunteers to place the trees at several established sites in Mark Twain Lake. John F. Spalding and South Fork Boat Ramps have been designated as the starting points. Residents of the Mark Twain Lake community willing to contribute their time and equipment to assist the Corps in placing the trees can meet at either the John F. Spalding or South Fork boat ramp on Saturday, March 31, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. The trees will be bundled together and sunk in Mark Twain Lake, developing an underwater habitat. These structures provide excellent places for fish to rest. Creating this structure also encourages the growth of algae and zooplankton for young fish to feed upon, which in turn enhances growth. Of course the biggest advantage is they make excellent places to catch fish, and all those volunteering will have first-hand knowledge of these “honey holes”. Anyone wishing to volunteer or wanting more information should contact Brad Stamp at the Mark Twain Lake Project Office at (573) 735-4097.

Seeking Scholarship Applicants The LaGrange Medical board is seeking applications for two $1,000.00 scholarships to be awarded to a senior from Canton and a senior from Highland. Applicants must be 2011-12 graduates and entering college in the Fall of 2012 to pursue a degree in the medical field. To obtain an application form, email: Mail completed application form to Mrs. Linda Hess, 1100 North Fourth Street, LaGrange, MO 63448. Applications are due by April 20, 2012.

Attendees learned about the day-to-day operations of Missouri Cattlemen’s Association, Missouri’s Cattlemen Foundation and the Missouri Beef Industry Council. Professional sessions were also hosted to teach leaders how to communicate effectively with media, build membership and stay current on MCA legislative priorities. Attendees traveled to Jefferson City to visit with their respective legislators at the State Capitol and voice their concerns on government regulations. Cattlemen enjoyed the opportunity to discuss the importance of their business, the association and their livelihood in agriculture. “It’s important for our representatives to hear directly from producers on hot topics,” said MCA Executive Vice President Jeff Windett. “Bringing cattlemen into the Capitol helps MCA effectively carry our message to those decision-makers and truly emphasizes our adherence to grassroots policy.” Participants of the 2012 MCA Leadership Conference were Jim Baumann, Monroe County; Taylor

This day-long concert event begins at 9 a.m. with adjudicated high school jazz ensembles performing every half-hour. The event closes with an evening concert beginning at 7:30 p.m. featuring legendary trombonist Bob Havens and pianist Ken Kehner along with the C-SC Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Tom Polett. Trombonist Bob Havens is an American big band and jazz musician who appeared on “The Lawrence Welk Show” from 1960 to1982. Born to a musical family in Quincy, Ill., he began studying violin and trombone at age seven and played both instruments throughout his school years. By the age of 16, his talent as a trombonist was recognized with a scholarship from the Interlochen Music Camp in Michigan. He continued to be a free-lance professional working often with the Bob Crosby Bob Cats and the Benny Goodman Orchestra (led by clarinetist Peanuts Hucko). From 1985 to 1995, Havens played with the Great Pacific Jazz Band along with Bob Ringwald, Don Nelson, and Zeke Zarchy. In 2005, he performed with the North Carolina Pops Orchestra at Campbell University with fellow Welk star Ava Barber for a benefit raising money for victims of Hurricane Katrina. He continues to record and appear at jazz festivals and concerts throughout the world.

Spurgeon Firing His Way to the Top For the first time in Garrett Spurgeon’s young shooting career, he had the opportunity to shoot in his first Olympic Qualifying Team Trials. The first of the qualifying matches was held in Anniston, Ala., the first weekend of December. Spurgeon went into the match touted as one of the top college rifle recruits of the 2012 senior class. Spurgeon finished the first day of competition with a new GARRETT SPURGEON

person best of 590 of 600 possible, which put him into the finals match that would include past Olympians, as well as some of the top shooting athletes of the United States. Garrett held his own, with a 102.3 final and in seventh place over all. The second day of competition, Garrett finished with a 587/600, not making finals but still a very solid performance. The second qualifying test came Feb. 25 and 26 in Campy Perry, Ohio. Garrett and another young man from Kentucky were the only juniors with a possible shot at making the Olympic Air Rifle qualifying list. USA Shooting rules require that they have to have minimum of eight spots on the qualifying list.

In case of injury, or illness, the Olympic committee would be able to fill that position. Garrett finished the first day again with another personal best of 591/600 and another finals match. The second day of competition proved to be a battle, as the 10’s were not coming as easy, but he still finished strong with a 584/600. This left Garrett with a slim lead on the ninth position and it would take the finals of the second day to decide the finish. After the scores were tallied, 18-year-old Garrett Spurgeon, a senior at Canton R-V High School, held the eighth position of the 2012 USA Olympic Air Rifle qualifying list.
