County in middle of rankings in state for healthcare BY DAN STEINBECK EDITOR


The Lewis County C-1 School Board has set May 1 as the date to interview a potential successor board member. The new member will take the place of Harry Scifres, who was elected last year. Scifres and Robert Reed Miller resigned in March after admitting voting on extra duty contracts for the 2011-12 school year that included family members of the two board members, a violation of state law. Miller was defeated in the election earlier this month as he sought his old position. There were four applications received by the C-1 School district, including a bogus one. The legitimate applications came from former board member Terry Faulconer, two-time unsuccessful candidate Jamie Brennan, and former board member and twice defeated candidate Donna Collier. The bogus letter came from “Mickey Mouse,” and was reportedly condescending of the C-1 School District. “It wasn’t very nice. It was turned over to the police,” C-1 Superintendent Jackie Ebeling. The meeting to interview the candidates will be Tuesday, May 1 at 6:30 p.m. and is open to the public, and the board will vote and place its new member after the interviews.

Lewis County is ranked as number 54 of the 114 counties and the City of St. Louis in a recent report on healthcare. In two general categories, Lewis County ranked 54th in health outcomes and 53rd in Health factors. Here is how Lewis County ranked in six sub categories: 12th in physical environment; 34th in social and economic factors; 50th each in mortality and morbidity; 71st in clinical care; and 91st in health behaviors. The sub-category details show the Lewis County information, followed respectively by the national benchmark and the state average. Mortality – 8,328 premature deaths; 5,466 for the national benchmark and 7,981 for the state average. Morbidity – 20% poor/fair health; 10%-16%; 4.8% poor physical health days, 2.6%- 3.6%; 3% mental health day, 2.3%-3.7%; 6.8% low birth rate, 6.0%8.1%

Health behaviors – 28% adult smoking, 14%-24%; 34% obesity, 25%-31%; 30% physical inactivity, 21%-28%; 18% excessive drinking, 8%-17%; 241 sexually transmitted infections, 84-438; 25 teen birth rate, 22-44. Clinical Care – 18% uninsured, 11%15%; 85 preventable hospital stays, 4975; 79% diabetic screening, 89%-84%; 60% mammography screening, 74%65%. Social and economic factors – 91% high school graduation, national not listed, 86% state; 49% some college, 68%61%; 8.5% unemployment; 5.4%-9.6%; 25% children in poverty, 13%-21%; 21% inadequate social support, 14%-19%; 21% children in single parent households, 20%-32%; 174 violent crime rate, 73-518. Physical environment – zero air pollution particulate days, same for national and state; zero air pollution ozone days, zero national and 7 for the state; 10 access to recreational facilities, 16-10; 18% limited access to health foods, zero for

the national, eight for the state; zero fast foods restaurants, 25-47. To Lewis County Health Department Administrator Diane Lay, the two things that stand out for Lewis County’s report were the high adult smoking and obesity figures. “Both can lead to cardiovascular problems,” Lay said. Lay said past smoking cessation classes in Lewis County have not been well received, but said Missouri has the 1-800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669) for people interested in quitting smoking. As far as the obesity, Lay said there are some opportunities for exercise in Lewis County, but should people have questions about where to exercise, they can call the Health Department at 573-767-5312. She said the screenings figures are lower because many don’t have health insurance to cover the associated costs. Lay encourages families to exercise together to combat obesity and childhood obesity, and encourages people to make healthy food choices.

TIGER BASEBALL The Canton Tigers were victorious over Mark Twain last night by a score of 12-0. The Tigers have improved to 6-2 for the year, having won their last six games. The Tigers were led by 2 hits each from Brandon Berhorst and Aaron Ellison. Garrett Serbin earned the win on the mound, throwing three innings, and then he was relieved by Lucas Brown. The Tigers put it all together last night: hitting, baserunning, pitching, and defense. The Tigers look to keep it going Thursday against La Plata, Friday against South Shelby, and in Madison on Saturday.

Enbridge Energy Company, Inc. has set eight open houses to discuss the cross-state pipeline project that will be located in 11 Missouri counties. One of those counties is Lewis, where the project enters in the southeast corner from Illinois. The closest of the come-andgo open houses is at the Quincy, Illinois Holiday Inn at 4821 Oak Street on Wednesday, April 25 from 5-8 p.m. three of the other open houses are listed in an ad elsewhere in this newspaper. The open houses will allow

the public to view displays and maps and talk with project team members. Specifically, it is for landowners, elected officials, and stakeholders. Enbridge has proposed expanding an existing pipeline with the construction of a nearly 600-mile, 36-inch diameter interstate crude oil pipeline from Flanagan, Illinois to Cushing, Oklahoma. The pipeline work will begin in 2013 and ready for service by mid 2014, and initially will be able to handle 585,000 barrels of crude oil a day. Enbridge is expected to invest $2.8 billion in the whole project.

The tenant then pays the remaining balance of the rent directly to the land-

lord on a monthly basis. Only houses, apartments and mobile homes that meet standards for safety, cleanliness and affordability set by HUD Housing Quality Standards (HQS) and local city an county zoning ordinances may be approved for the program. NECAC provides the qualified applicants with a list of all local landlords who participate in the program.

Lewis County IDA promotes “Buy Lewis County”

BY RITA COX Reporter

The Lewis County Industrial Development Authority (IDA) will sponsor a series of articles in the coming months that will highlight businesses in the county and encourage people to support these hometown businesses. Buying local not only helps businesses continue to provide services to residents, but the tax dollars go to support the schools, provide money for roads and maintenance and other essential services. Money spent locally stays local. Hometown businesses help support the many organizations and events in the community. Purchasing local goods and services can save gas money and time, and the service from a local business usually exceeds standards. Local business owners know their customers and how valuable they are. Helping the local economy with buying local, makes the community a better place to live and more opportunities are available to residents and future business

owners. The IDA is an organization that began with informal meetings beginning in 1991 by individuals interested in promoting economic growth in Lewis County. A corporation was formed and then approved as an Industrial Development Authority, bylaws were adopted at the first organizational meeting. Legislation authorizing a landfill tipping fee was passed by the Missouri General Assembly in 1993 and was signed into law. The citizens of Lewis County then showed their support at the polls by authorizing the collection of a $1.50 a ton fee for materials deposited into the landfill in eastern Lewis County. The tipping fee provides the revenue source for the operation of the Lewis County IDA. The organization has many purposes. Creating long-lasting and beneficial jobs for area residents; assist existing employers to become more competitive, encourage new employers from within Lewis County, develop strategies for capturing more local consumer dollars, access out-

side sources of capital and assist the improvements of infrastructure, recreational and cultural facilities. The Lewis County Industrial Development Authority provides financial assistance to Lewis County businesses and industry with funds administered via zero percent loans to qualified applicants, providing for the expansion

of existing businesses, and to attract new businesses with an emphasis on employment. These loans are made in conjunction with other financial institutions. The IDA is governed by an eight person board of directors appointed to specified terms by the Lewis County Commission. Bill Smith is director.

Board members are Steve Ayers, president; Jeff Janney, vice-president; Randall Sharpe, treasurer; Jim Ellison, secretary; Dan Griesbaum, Chris Huebotter, Robert R. Miller and Janis VanMeter. More information can be found at the The phone number is (573) 767-5393.

The Lewis County area has many features,that make the area an inviting place to live, work and shop. The area businesses depend on local support. The public is encouraged to continue to support all Lewis County businesses and events. Buy Lewis County, it will make a difference.

Going to the TV psychologist BY DAN STEINBECK EDITOR

Everybody - someone famous once said - is trying to get his or her 15 minutes of fame. That must be the explanation for some of the people on “solve-yourproblems -TV.” The dirty laundry some people wouldn’t tell a neighbor, under the guise of privacy, is aired when people call into self-help talk radio shows or TV self-help shows like Dr. Phil, or they agree to be on those TV courtroom shows. Do they think their neighbor, boss, significant other won’t find out about these? The viewer just knows the host of the broadcast show is going to ask questions and say things that will make the person(s) with the private issues wish they could slide unnoticed under the carpet. Watching such TV is of the same mentality for watching car races for the wrecks or watching Christians being fed to lions. Yet people go on TV all the time bringing up the trivial or going on TV with obvious moral lapses. They take trivial court matters to TV court, only to be publicly scolded by a TV judge trying to boost ratings. Is any of this really worth it? Do they really expect Dr. Phil to say to bless immoral behavior or condone weird relationships and loony decisions? No, likely, he’ll drawl, “What were you thinking?” Do they really think the TV judge will let rules

STEINBECK slide when in many of those cases, it’s obvious for whom the judgment should go? No, it’s an opportunity to berate this one coming on TV. People could save a lot of time, money, and embarrassment, by giving an honest assessment of their life, and scolding themselves on audio or videotape, (or a modern digital equivalent) and playing it over. Then while playing it, the person can stay home, make sure windows are closed, feel like dirt anyway as they would have on the TV show, and not have to worry about the neighbors hearing of the problem. Then they can change their life and then at a later time go on TV with the past firmly in the past. Instead, to get their 15 minutes of fame, they send their problem to the TV psychoanalyst and beg, “Pease pick me. Please berate me in front of millions, so I can finally get some attention. Please Please.” In the words of Dr. Phil, “what are these people thinking?”


Autism resources are available Because children with autism often have an impaired sense of danger, they are at serious risk of injury, trauma or death. Drowning is the leading external cause of death among individuals with autism. Autism-related wandering incidents present a unique challenges to first responders and search personnel, as many autistic children are non-verbal and unable to respond to rescuers. Their reaction to seeing emergency personnel is often one of fear rather than relief. The first major study on wandering was conducted online by the Interactive Autism Network (IAN). According to the responses from more than 800 parents, roughly 50 percent of children between the ages of 4-10 with an ASD(Autism Spectrum Disorder) wander at some point, four times more than their unaffected siblings. The behavior peaks at 4, but almost 30 percent of kids with an ASD between the ages of 7-10 are still eloping, eight times more than their unaffected brothers and sisters. Nearly half of the respondents said a child was missing long enough to cause significant safety concerns, with 32 percent calling the police. Two out of three reported their wandering child had a “close call” with a traffic injury, while almost a third said their child had

a “close call” with drowning. Another alarming statistic: 35 percent of families with wanderers said their child is “never” or “rarely” able to communicate his name, address or phone number, either verbally or by writing or typing. No wonder more than half of parents say wandering is the most (or among the most) stressful ASD behavior, ahead of self-injury, rigidity, aggression, and meltdowns. Locally, the Northeast Missouri Autism Support Group is making first responders aware of the characteristics and special needs of individuals on the Autism Spectrum. Member Sally White designed a bracelet to alert first responders that an individual has an ASD and would love to see this bracelet equipped with a tracking device for those who might wander or bolt. Those who would like to know more about her efforts may e-mail Sally at Training is also available through the Kirksville Regional Office for any emergency personnel or community members who want to know more about Autism.
