Governor Jay Nixon touted the job creation for the proposed Flanagan south crude oil pipeline project in a conference call with media Thursday, March 29. “Today, we have another clear opportunity to create construction jobs, support local communities and boost America’s energy independence with the Flanagan South pipeline,” Nixon said. “Enbridge US is one of North America’s largest pipeline companies. Earlier this week, Enbridge announced that it will move forward with the construction of a new pipeline that will run from Flanning, Illinois to Cushing Okalahoma.” That 600 miles pipeline will enter these 11 Missouri Counties: Lewis, Marion, Shelby, Macon, Randolph, Chariton, Saline, Lafayette, Johnson, Cass, and Bates. “This project will create good paying construction jobs for Missouri workers and provide a significant boost to local economies,” Nixon said. Nixon projected the project would create “thousands of jobs” statewide.

“They won’t build it one piece at a time. There will be project folks throughout the region. It will add to the work base very quickly,” Nixon said. When further questioned about from where people would be hired, Nixon said it would be “Missouri region contractors.” “Enbridge is not a company that has many contractors. How it (the project)will be divided up and the sites of it are being worked on right now. Clearly their intention is to hire localbased contractors with excellent skilled craftsmen. This has to be built very smart and very well,” Nixon said. Missouri will serve as a pass-through state for the crude oil to be transported. Nixon said it would come from the northern part of the United States and Alberta Canada, including from some oil sands. After it gets to Cushing, Oklahoma, it will go to refineries in Texas and Louisiana. “We don’t have the refining assets in the Show-Me State,” Nixon said. Nixon admitted some of the oil might be exported. “Transportation costs will be smaller (transporting from nearby states), there will be more oil available and quite

frankly the oil on the open market are all three clear downward pressures on the price of gas,” Nixon said. “Not only will it create construction jobs, but it will help to ensure these reliable fuel supplies for generations to come so we are not relying on the whims of folks in other parts of the world as to what we pay for gas and fuel at the pump,” Nixon said. Enbridge not only gave the go-ahead on the project, they also upsized it from original projections. Instead of the original 30-inch pipe diameter, Enbridge is now saying 36inch diameter pipes, for a larger capacity – initially some 585,000 barrels of oil a day – and bumping the cost from $1.9 to $2.8 billion dollars. Nixon said Enbridge and state officials would be out holding informational meetings in the communities near the pipeline in the coming weeks, and necessary permits would be secured. Construction will not start until 2013 and expected to be completed by 2014. The construction is expected to generally follow a current Spearhead Oil pipeline built in 1952 by the Sinclair Oil Company, now owned by Enbridge.

A Lewis County C-1 administrator acknowledged two students were disciplined for a reported bullying incident during the basketball season. Lewis County C-1 Superintendent Jackie Ebeling said two upperclassmen were disciplined according to school policy over some incident that apparently took place in a locckerroom in late January or early February and involved at least one underclassman. A KHQA TV report said the incident was sexual in nature. Ebeling said the school district found out about the incident from the parents of the friends of the victim. She said there might have been two to three other witnesses, but only one set of parents came forward. “No one went to the coach that I am aware of,” Ebeling said. Since then, head boys basketball coach Clyde Rosencrans and assistant Jason Jones have resigned from their coaching duties, but both continue their teaching duties in the district. Ebeling said the coaches were not in the locker room when the apparent incident occurred. Ebeling said the coaches

separated upper and underclassmen into different locker rooms, and asked to extend the discipline to which the district agreed. “I am troubled by this. I don’t like bullying. We have done several programs on bullying and have another one scheduled in April,” Ebeling said. Since the news broke, social networking comments and anonymous media comments have “created a furor.” “It’s an unfortunate and debilitating stab at the faculty and administration,” Ebeling said. The school has not yet replaced the coaches and may be hard pressed to find coaches. “We have no open teaching positions. The administration has just begun to look at a few applications. We’ve had a lot of inquiries,” Ebeling said. That community awareness bullying program is Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the Highland High School Commons. Speakers will include Judy Edmonson of AVNEUES in Hannibal, The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office and Juvenile Office, and Counselor Alicia Reichert. Those attending should register by April.

Minor injuries reported in Ralls County crash Two Lewistown women had apparently minor injuries in a two vehicle crash near New London March 28. Jackie Kennedy, 39, and Andrea Kennedy, 43, both of Lewistown, were taken

to Hannibal Regional Hospital. The Missouri state Highway Patrol said Jackie Kennedy was driving a 2006 Volkswagen north on U.S. 61 and had slowed to make a left-hand turn,

when it was struck in the rear by a 1998 Toyota, driven by John L. Sackett, 24, of Columbia. Both vehicles were totaled. The women both used seat belts.

There would be a lot of hubbub surrounding the swearing in ceremony and such at the Capitol, and Fido wasn’t good at playing his brave cards. The retriever mutt-mix was dear to Lincoln’s heart, and as spoiled as a lump of Limburger cheese left outside on a Missouri dog day. The mongrel was a Yankee Doddle Dandy, but courageous he wasn’t.

From the world news counter, comes this item “Danish lottery incorrectly tells hundreds of people they are billionaires.” Danske Spil, the Danish Lottery, sent notices March 20 to 302 people telling them they were billionaires, each supposedly winning the American equivalent of $5 billion. An hour and a half later they were told the American equivalent of “oops. Not quite true.” It took an hour and a half for Danske Spil to get past the American equivalent of “*#)@(!*&/#+#~”. Each of the people receiving notices did get the U.S. equivalent of $35-$70, which, if you close you eyes, kick your heels together, and wish really big, is almost like $5 billion. Danske Spil blamed “human error.” Really? They couldn’t find a monkey, or a kumquat, or a freak weather condition on which to cast blame? Even if it had been mechanical, technically, it could have gone back to “human error,” because humans either made the machines or programmed the machines that made the machines. But it was human error. There was no immediate report of how many of the “winners” passed out at the initial news, and then passed out again when their “billions” were taken away. Anyone want to guess if those behind this human error have been permanently re-assigned to what Americans call “Antarctica’s lottery commission?”

STEINBECK Why should anyone be surprised by this? Had they won billions, Denmark would have made sure taxes cut into a lot of the winnings. A phony winning letter just saves the taxing process. Is it really any different from the American equivalent of the “youmay-have already won” letters, where untold riches are always just one lucky guess or random draw away in America? The money, for most people never materializes. What do you want to bet - get it, bet? - some of the 302 people will never play the Danish lottery again, while thousands more will play it, because even if they are wrong, Danske Spil at least contacts you and give you hope, even if it is fleeting. Despite this news, the U.S. Mega Millions had records galore with people buying tickets, the vast majority of those who went home losers. Who knows? Maybe The Danish issue will turn into the American equivalent of a lovely marketing ploy for Danske Spil. They may even bring the guy(s) back from Antarctica to come up with another phony winning letter.

With Sincere Appreciation The family of Jack Welker would like to express our sincere gratitude for the outpouring of love and generosity shown before and after his passing. We have been overwhelmed with emotion with all the love and friendship that has been shown throughout his battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and up until his final days. The cards, phone calls, visits, food, flowers, words of kindness, memorials, thoughts and loving prayers are appreciated more than words can say. Your presence has helped to lighten our burden and has been a source of strength for our family during this difficult time. We feel a simple thank you is not adequate enough but please know we are truly grateful and our thanks come from the heart. Jack never thought he would see his children grown, let alone, married and have children of their own. He was very proud of the young adults they have become. Jack will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends.

The face of downtown LaGrange will be forever changed with the demolition of several buildings scheduled to begin soon. The buildings, which were flooded or threatened with flooding during the 2008 Mississippi River flood are part of the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. Owners of the properties had the option to be bought out based on fair market value appraisals. FEMA funding amounts to 75 percent of the cost of demolition and the other 25 percent is CDBG Disaster Recovery Grants. Campbell Trucking was awarded the contract for demolition in the amount $82,200 and the city is funding the demolition of the city owned former Scout Building on the west side of Main Street. Buildings scheduled to be torn down include the large building at the corner of Main and Washington which formerly housed the Double G Bar and has graced the corner spot since 1904; the former Farmer’s and Merchants Bank building, the former library building and several homes on the east side of Main Street.

Legislators at the State Capitol were busy lawmaking March 29, but still had time to meet with and introduce on the floors of the House and Senate hundreds of junior and senior high school students attending Missouri Farm Bureau Youth Leadership Day. The event, held at the Capitol and Missouri Farm Bureau Center, hosted more than 400 youth this year. The organization’s promotion and education program is responsible for the event, which teaches students about governing and citizenship. The students heard from Pearce, Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst, and Missouri Farm Bureau Ambassadors Aaron Kerr and Sonja Perry when they returned to the Missouri Farm Bureau Center. Hurst welcomed the group and urged them to stay involved in agricultural organizations. Kerr and Perry said one way to get involved is competing in the ambassador contest, one of several Farm Bureau contests that allow youth to gain experience and earn scholarship money.

Submitted Photo Lewis and Clark 4-H members attending State 4-H Teen Conference: Drenda Hess, Abby Brown, Elizabeth Lemmon, Logan Arnold, Blake Plenge, and Jaclyn Sweet.

Lewis County 4-H members, Jaclyn Sweet of the Pleasant Grove 4-H Club and Elizabeth Lemmon of the Monticello 4-H Club along with Drenda Hess, Abby Brown, Logan Arnold, and Blake Plenge, Clark County 4-H members from the Ashton Cloverleaf 4-H Club were among the record setting 294 delegates

attending the annual State 4-H Teen Conference held March 24-25 in Columbia Missouri. The delegates, ages 11-13, attended workshops centered around three of the 4-H program’s four “essential elements:” belonging, generosity, and mastery of new skills. The fourth element is independence, and for many attendees this was the first overnight

event away from home. The conference is led by Missouri’s State 4-H Council, a group of older teens elected annually by their peers, who work for months to plan and implement this leadership conference. This year’s Teen Conference theme was NFL: Nation’s Finest Leaders. Members attending from Lewis and Clark

counties thoroughly enjoyed the experience and plan to attend Teen Conference or State 4-H Congress in future years. For more information about 4-H, which is open to all youth ages 8-18, visit or contact the Lewis County University of Missouri Extension Office at 7675273.
