MODOT TO SELL MONTICELLO PROPERTY BY DAN STEINBECK Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
The Missouri Department of Transportation will sell the former Monticello highway shed and property at auction May 24. Last year, MoDOT announced major statewide restructuring, including the closing of the Monticello and LaBelle highway shed properties, and reassigning the employees. MoDOT officials say there are no current plans to sell the LaBelle property at this time. Area MoDOT Engineer Amy Crawford has met with the Lewis County Commission about the possibility of the County or the city of LaBelle taking over the property, with MoDOT retaining use of a salt storage shed at LaBelle, according to Southern Commissioner Jesse Roberts. However there has been no decision early this month on the proposal. An ad for the sale of the Monticello property is listed in this issue. The Monticello property is almost 2.5 acres with several buildings on Route 16 at the south village limits of Monticello. It was originally built in 1958, but there have been improvements and other structures added since then. In 2011, MoDOT announced statewide restructuring to cut 1,200 jobs, 135 facilities, and 740 pieces of equipment, and cut money for new road projects. There were two employees at each the LaBelle and Monticello facilities last year before the buildings closed. One retired prior to the closure and the others were reassigned to other MoDOT facilities.

Culver-Stockton kicks off “A vision for our future” campaign BY BRIANNA BARTLETT Editorial Assistant email@example.com
On May 11, 2012, Culver-Stockton kicked off it’s new “A vision for our future” campaign with a ceremony held in the Carl Johann Memorial Library. With help from a group of Culver-Stockton students, President Richard Valentine showed the crowd of approximately 30 people a total of $8,515,333 the college has already been accounted for towards the $10.4 million campaign. “Currently, around 96 percent of Culver alumni make donations to the college,” said President Richard Valentine. Renovations have already begun in the library, including a new stairwell, a new circulation disk and a reconfigured space for a larger classroom and additional

$2.3 million, thus allowing the school to give more scholarships, have more lecture series’, etc. The last $3.6 million of the $10.4 million the college intends to place into its annual giving fund which will also assist the scholarship fund. Currently, more than 90 percent of C-SC students receive financial aid from the college. “I am proud to say that this project of “A vision for our future” will simply set the stage for the next way we can enhance the student experience at CulverStockton,” Valentine remarked. Valentine urges alumni to give what they can afford because every gift assist them in reaching their goal. He reminded everyone that the money goes to a good purpose- that of maintaining the campus and ensuring decent facilities, providing scholarships, and keeping the college safe.

computers. Additional renovations wanted for the library include a coffee shop for the college. The college also intends to erect a new $3.5 million recreation and wellness center. In 2003, the college lost the Charles Field House in a tornado, and the board of trustees responded by constructing a building in an attempt to “fill the void” until a new Charles Field house was erected. The current building continues to serve as an activity and recreation center, but only has a small fitness center. The wellness center is listed to be a top priority by the board of trustees and their peers. Other new additions and renovations include a $750,000 campus beautification project, which would include a new parking lot and road paving. The college would also like to increase it’s current endowment fund of $21 million by another
There is a flurry of activity at Canton’s south city limits with a multimillion dollar construction project. Ursa Farmer’s Cooperative is putting a grain elevator complex in Canton. According to Duane Shaffer of Shaffer Construction of Ursa, Ill., the concrete cap of the first of several passthrough bins was poured this week. That cap was added to the first of two eventual 140,000-bushel bins. A third elevator bin will be 200,000-bushel capacity. Leg support towers for the bins have been erected, and will be moved into proper positions later. The complex will also have an office, a scale, and three separate dump pits to receive the grain from the trucks.
Shaffer said the bins under construction would basically hold the grain just long enough for it to be loaded onto barges. A belt conveyor of over 1,100 feet long will move the grain from the temporary bins to barges, and will pass over the levee and Burlington-Northern Santa Fe tracks. Shaffer said the conveyor would be some 40 feet in the air. “We had to get permission from DNR (The Department of Natural Resources), The Corps of Engineers, and the railroad,” Shaffer said. That’s what took us so long. They all have signed off on it. A metal shed will be a shop for equipment and some repairs. Shaffer said eventually, more
permanent grain storage bins will be constructed. There are more than 20 construction workers from several companies working at various times on the project. Shaffer is not sure when the project will be operational.

ONE HURT IN TRACTOR ROLLOVER
Photo by Rita Cox
Terry Tasco of LaGrange was injured when a tractor he was operating near a demolition site tipped over and pinned him for a short time. Tasco received injuries and was transported to the hospital by Lewis County Ambulance. Responding to the scene were LaGrange First Responders and Fire Department and LaGrange Police Department.
Two members of an Ewing family had apparently minor injuries in a twovehicle accident on 156, four miles east of Newark. Brooke A. Derryberry, 29, and her daughter Melonie J. Derryberry, 9, both of Ewing were treated by medical crews. B. Derryberry was taken by Lewis County ambulance to Blessing Hospital, and medical crews released the daughter on scene after treatment. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said B. Derryberry’s 2007 Toyota was westbound at 9:45 a.m. crossed the center line and struck a 1988 Ford driven by Mark A. Hirner, 71, of Palmyra on a hill crest. Hirner was apparently not hurt. Also assisting the Patrol were the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office, LaBelle Fire and Rescue, Sharpe Land and Cattle and PARTS towing. Both drivers and the passenger wore seat belts. The Toyota had extensive damage, and the Ford was totaled.
La Belle City council discussed the issue of horses in the city limits BY BRIANNA BARTLETT Editorial Assistant email@example.com
La Belle Mayor Larry Hackemack and the town alderman met at City Hall on Monday, May 14 to discuss whether the town should continue to allow horses to remain in the city limits. The meeting resulted in a somewhat heated debate between councilmen and local equestrian owners. Although only one complaint has been made to the city’s staff, the Mayor, alderman, and even a few town citizens discussed the ‘problems’ with having horses in the town limits. Odor and property depreciation were part of the discussion, along with the potential of the Department of Natural Resources placing a heavy fine on the town for having “raw sewage, whether animal or human” that could possibly pollute the streams, etc., of La Belle. There was a crowd of approximately ten people who wished to $ speak in hopes
to allow their horses to remain. Doyle Pierce, whose horse lot sits next to the person who made the complaint stated, “I’m working on taking care of the problem. I don’t go on anyone’s property and tell them what to do, but if it’s hurting someone, I’m willing to fix it.” Michelle Miller, another town resident responded to horses being called a nuisance by stating, “Dogs and cats are also a nuisance. People are always complaining about dogs and cats making noise, tearing up garbage, etc.” Miller also questioned the council about the possibility of a ‘grandfather clause’ in the law similar to that of the grandfather clause in the ordinance La Belle passed dealing with split-hoofed animals. The mayor and aldermen replied that they would need to check with a lawyer. The possibility of putting the issue to a city wide vote was also discussed, but the council made the decision to table the issue until the next meeting on June 11. $ $ $

BUY LEWIS COUNTY
River View Golf Course at 33566 220th Street on Hwy B, located between Canton and LaGrange, is a nine hole golf course. Owner Allen Brinkley purchased the business in 2007 and opened it up to the public. The course was previously a private golf course which started in the mid 1970s and was known as River Valley Country Club. The Culver-Stockton golf course, River View, with its sand greens, had closed due to expansion of campus facilities and construction of the new Highway 61. Brinkley renamed his course River View to reflect on the long tradition Culver-Stockton’s support of golf and the location on the bluffs above the Mississippi River. River View Golf Course is always open by March 15 and usually closes at the end of November, but any day
in the winter above 50 degrees and the weather is nice, Brinkley will open up the course. Golf is a fun activity for any skill level. All ages can benefit from the exercise that golf provides. Golf also provides an opportunity to experience the outdoors in a peaceful setting. With 68 acres, the beautiful grounds are constantly maintained and an ongoing project includes prairie land restoration to support wildlife. Brinkley is a Highland High School graduate who played on the Highland golf team and qualified all four years for state play. He is a Culver-Stockton graduate, earning a degree in finance. He was involved in the golf business and when the opportunity came along to purchase the local course, he knew it would be a good fit. It is a family operation. He is married to Traci, a Title Reading teacher at Highland Elementary School and they have one child, 18 month old Corinne. His parents, Kirt and Karma Brinkley also help with the day to day operation and various aspects of the business. River View Golf Course is a popular place for fundraising tournaments, parties, weddings, business and company outings, reunions and other activities.
RIVER VIEW GOLF COURSE
The River View Golf Course, located between Canton and LaGrange, is a 9-hole course consisting of 68 acres. RIGHT - Owner Allen Brinkley along with his mother Karma welcome everyone to the course this summer, and encourage those who haven’t played, to try this fun, relaxing activity.
The Brinkley’s are committed to the community and support local events. Culver-Stockton and Canton High School both use the course for their teams and Brinkley said he is grateful of the support from the Culver-Stockton community and all of his customers. Brinkley encourages everyone to try golf. If a person has never played, the staff will be glad to
help them get started playing. Current specials include foursome price of $50, seven days a week and on week days, the cost is one dollar per hole. Yearly memberships are also available. Concessions are available at the clubhouse along with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The phone number for River View Golf Course is (573) 288-3083. Photos by Rita Cox

THIS IS LIFE
Did you hear the apparent true ones about...? BY DAN STEINBECK EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
One benefit for the Internet is exposure to news stories, funny photos, and weird videos to which ordinary people would have otherwise been uninformed. For example, Google search “weird news stories” and see some recent results. • Prom season, for some strange reason, always seems to generate head-scratching activities. Apparently some people are not content with a pretty dress of normal dress materials In past years, colored duct tape formal wear has been the style.. This year, some girl made one of aluminum can soda pop tops (was it scratchy?) and one made at least part of her dress from thousands of candy wrappers. (was it sticky?). For the aluminum top dress, it makes passing through metal detectors tricky. For the candy wrapper dress, how many gallons of perfume did she need to cover the fruity candy scent? However, a Tennessee teen couldn’t go to her prom, because she wore a sequined confederate flag dress. • In Indiana a man was arrested for drunk driving (and likely other charges) for driving with four kids strapped to a car hood on a jaunt to the liquor store. Wow. Isn’t there some type of adult license he must permanently surrender? • In Connecticut, a teen’s body spray set off a school fire alarm. It is not immediately known if the cologne was applied at industrial strength to cover another prom-dress scent, such as, for example, peanut
STEINBECK butter jars. • A Florida teacher used a dog cone-shaped collar to discipline students. First they outlaw spanking, and now they outlaw public humiliation. What next? • It has been ruled two dolphins in a Switzerland zoo died of a heroin substitute overdose. Apparently at a party attended by thousands last year, someone slipped the dolphins the drugs. Of course the obvious question is this: Dolphins? in Switzerland? • It is well promoted that texting and driving is not a cool idea. A Michigan woman went off a pier into Lake Michigan trying to text a change an appointment while walking. She survived. You’ve been warned. • A California (where else) weightlifter accidentally shot himself when he dropped a dumbbell on a .22 caliber bullet. Keywords here are California and dumbbell. • A New York man tried to rob three banks with the most dangerous of all weapons, a toilet plunger. Isn’t it wonderful to now be in the know?
No one’s better than mama A common saying often heard in the South is, “My mama raised me better…” Some people laugh about the saying, but there’s a good meaning behind it. It’s not that fathers don’t do their own wonderful things to help raise their children, but there is just something special about mothers. Mothers are a very good example of true unconditional love. They are there during sickness, skinned knees, awards for school, broken hearts, and everything in between. They aren’t always going to make the perfect decisions, and sometimes, we even think they’ve lost their minds and that we’ll never speak to them again (especially as teenagers). Mothers feel the same way about their children tooprobably more often than they admit- but no matter what, a mother knows that it is her job to do whatever it takes to protect her child. I watched a video that had been posted onto Facebook a few days ago. While it played, I sat and cried nearly every single tear my body could produce. It was a story of a woman who had a baby with an extremely rare facial deformity. The child’s eyes never formed, and he was unable to close his mouth due to a severe cleft palate. She mentioned how difficult it was trying to raise him, and how much harder it
BARTLETT was when people would come up to her and tell her she was a horrible parent for not aborting her child when she knew there was a problem. Over time, people began finding her over Facebook, in person, through letters, etc. They all supported her for her choice to raise her little boy- who was an inspiration to so many. She ended the video by showing pictures of her little boy smiling, and showing her son’s face and describing just how beautiful he was to her. A good mother will always have your back, even if you don’t think she does. I’ve been blessed to have a mother, a stepmother, and a grandmother to always have my back. So, I spent my Mother’s Day celebrating just how wonderful it is to have mothers in my life- and thanking them for all they’ve offered to my life.

95 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal May 18, 1917
From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers 25 Years Ago The Press-News Journal May 14, 1987 LeRoy Van Dyke, “The World’s Most Famous Auctioneer” will give a professional presentation of county music at the Lewis County Fair on Friday, July 17. Accompanying him with the stage performance will be his musicians, “The Auctioneers.” The City of Canton Constitutional Bicentennial Community Committee met Monday evening at Canton City Hall to make plans for observance of the 200th birthday of the nation’s constitution. Plans are being geared toward a kickoff event in mid-September, with special activities during the remainder of 1987 and 1988. 45 Years Ago The Press-News Journal May 18, 1967 Two Canton students were among those honored at the Honors Day assembly honoring student leadership at Culver-Stockton Tuesday. Aletha Ahrenholtz was named the new editor of “The Increscent” the campus literary magazine, and was honored for her number on rating in the Missouri Newspaper Association competition. Gael Cooper was named editor of “The Megaphone”, the campus newspaper. In addition, Judy Logsdon was among those recognized for being named to the Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities. Among those serving as sophomore counselors next year will be Grace Carpenter and Candy Tomlinson. 50 Years Ago The Press-News Journal May 17, 1962 Mrs. Robert H.

Thieves broke into three business houses and ransacked several cars early Sunday morning in Canton, but succeeded in getting only a small haul. Sometime after three a.m. they broke in the glass in the front door in Nemo Cleaners and apparently crawled through the hole. The only thing missing is a small transistor radio. The glass was also broken out of the side door at Brown Furniture, thus allowing the robbers to reach through and unlock the door. A little over $8 in change was stolen. 75 Years Ago The Press-News Journal May 20, 1937 The largest graduating class in the history of Canton High School will be the outstanding fact of the annual commencement exercises to be held at the high school auditorium tonight. The class is composed of 44. Coach Herbert Bunker will deliver the address. The campus newspaper of the University of Ohio has a story of about 10 new members being elected to Gamma Sigma Delta agricultural honorary society. It will be of interest to Canton friends to know that Arnold Wagner of Canton was one of the men to receive the honor. Canton friends will be pleased to note the recognition that is coming to this brilliant young man. Arnold is a lover of flowers and is taking floriculture at the university.

Of the 11 present, five started to school together; Janelle Jennings, Genevieve Schlager, Kenneth Wolf, and Marvin Zenge and William Fukenbusch. 85 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal May 20, 1927 Prof. A. A. Feigenspan, a former well-known school teacher of this county, now living at Steffenville, met with an accident that caused him the loss of his left eye. Miss Hazel Killebrew of Durham has won the free scholarship offered by the Chillicothe Business College to the pupil graduating from the Durham High School with the best grades. The graduating class of Monticello High School: Howard Felger, Cliff McCoy, Albert Lay, Franklin Fishback, Otho Geisenforfer, Bruce Anderson, and Misses Martha Williams, Hazel Hawkins, Alice Reiter, Betty Brown Walker and Nanna Smith. There were 12 graduates at Williamstown High School. Calvin Deck was the honor pupil of the class and Bill Fee was a close competitor. Mr. Deck received a scholarship from LaGrange College.
105 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal May 24, 1907 George W. Smith has a fine ice box for his meat shop now as can be found anywhere. It was made by the Canton Planing Mill and s a beautiful piece of furniture, showing fine worksmanship. The school board of this place has employed Prof. Floyd Wilson of La Belle as principal of the school for the next year. Monticello is becoming more and more a musical town, especially is this so in the fine instruments. Two more new pianos were delivered this week, one at the home of J. M. Smoot for his daughter, Miss Maud, and one to J. D. Woodworth for his wife who is quite a noted musician.
In the blink of an eye... memories are made! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone for the awesome retirement party on May 6. It meant so much to me to see so many from my Canton R-V Daycare family, past and present. Thank you for all of the cards, well wishes, kind words, hugs, reminiscing and remarkable party. I have enjoyed being a part of the Canton R-V Daycare for 17 years. Thank you for the memories. Maxine Hark

Annual Coin Show Opens to Public PAID ADVERTISEMENT
BY DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER
This year the annual International Coin Collectors Association will open it’s doors to the general public. The five day coin show is a unique opportunity for anyone that has coins, whether it’s a single coin or an entire collection. They can meet with and sell directly to the collector’s club. Admission is free and there is no obligation to sell. The types of coins the collectors are looking for include silver dollars, half dollars, quarters and dimes dated 1964 and before. Actu-
ally, the half dollars can date all the way to 1970. The government used silver to make most U. S. coinage until 1965 when they started using cheaper clad. Silver coins made before 1965 are made with 90 percent silver and are worth many times their face value because of today’s high silver market. Recently, silver has been trading for about $32 per oz. Five years ago, silver was just over $4 per oz. This dramatic increase has raised the price of these silver coins dramatically. Therefore, people that have these coins are selling them to take advantage of the
record high prices. During this five day event, those who have coins they wish to sell will be able to do just that. Unlike selling your coins at a pawn shop or one of those traveling “we buy anything” sales, this show is operated by collectors who pay much higher prices. This show isn’t just for silver coins either. They are also interested in gold coins, paper currency, nickels and pennies too. The United States government started minting coins in 1792. If those early coins are in good condition, they can be worth

big money. For instance, a 1792 silver dollar could be worth as much as $20,000 if it’s the right one. Compare that to a common wheat back penny from the 1960’s— still collectible but only worth a few cents. Old paper currency can be worth a lot too. A common silver certificate is only worth a couple of bucks but an 1890’s $20 bill in excellent condition could be worth thousands. This event is a place you can learn about the coins and paper currency that you have and a chance to sell directly to collectors.

Going through his father’s pocket change became a daily ritual. That’s around the time when the government stopped using silver to make coins and started using intrigued by the silver coins—they were colder to the touch than the newer clad coins and they sounded different when they clanked together.

Culver-Stockton recently hosted a reception in Walton’s honor, during which faculty, staff, students and alumni gathered. Walton joined C-SC in 1983 and was head men’s basketball coach and assistant professor of physical educations until 1991. C-SC appointed him assistant professor of Psychology, and in 1998, he became chair of the Social and Behavioral Sciences Division. In 2001, he was named lead of the Psychology department. He

Walton was C-SC head men’s golf coach from 1983-1993 and was the first faculty rep to the athletic department from 1994-2003, when he was named athletic director- a position he held for five years. In 2008, Walton resumed his teaching career as an associate professor of Psychology. Walton received the college’s Helsabeck Prize for Excellence in Teaching in 1987 and the Missouri Governor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2000. He was also twice named the recipient of the Panhellenic Council Faculty Award in 1998 and 2001. Walton earned his bachelor’s of science degree in physical education at Illinois State University and his master’s degree in psychology and counseling at Nicholls State University, Thibodaux, La.

Three retire from the Canton R-V School District By Tej Ghosh This year the Canton R-V community is going to witness the retirement of three individuals who have served the school district with honor and distinction for several years. The end of this current school year is going to draw a curtain on the careers of Betty Hudnut, Maxine Hark and Diann Logsdon who together have served the school district for 63 years. The three of them shared glimpses of their careers with the newspaper.
Betty Hudnut Job Title: Special Ed Paraprofessional. Years spent with the school district: 33 years Most memorable experiences: It was great to read and discuss a story or history lesson and listen to the students comments. One memorable moment was when the students and I were reading a story - Aunt Polly would not let a certain Dr., her former boyfriend, in to see her niece who had been
hit by an automobile and was paralyzed. The Dr. wanted to see the niece as he thought he could help her. Aunt Polly would not let him in the front door. I asked, “What do you think about that?” A student’s reply was, “Well, I would just go in the back door!” Changes witnessed over the years: As the years go by there is a better understanding of how students learn - this year there was a lot of differentiated instruction incorporated into the lessons allowing all students to learn better.
Plans after retirement: Spend more time with the family, especially with the grandchildren, visit with friends I haven’t heard from for a while, be more involved with church activities, sew, garden, fish, enjoy being at the lake farm, travel through Alaska, the Northwest states, see the Red Wood trees in CA, and see the Northeast states in the fall. Things that you will miss the most: I will definitely miss the students the most!! There has never been a time when I didn’t want to come to school to be with the students. I will also miss everyone at Canton R-V, who works tirelessly to educate our students, keep the building safe and clean, the cooks who prepare our meals everyday, and all other support staff.
Most memorable experiences: With 17 years of working with kids, birth to 5 years old-there have been way too many memorable experiences to try to list a few. Changes witnessed over the years: Not a lot of changes. The need for quality childcare has been and always will be very important. Possibly technology and now even the very young children are educated with computers and electronic devices. But the one thing that will never change is the need for children to love and be loved. Plans after retirement: Continue my morning job as Canton Christian Church secretary. Take more pictures. Work at home and in the yard. Spend more time working on crafts and hobbies. Things that you will miss the most: The children’s smiling faces and hugs. The amazing time spent with the kids as they learn and grow and being a part of this really special time in their lives. Working with a remarkable group of people.
joyed watching the promenade each year when the young men and women looked so beautiful and handsome and dressed so differently than every day school clothes. Changes witnessed over the years: The changes I have seen over the years are many. I have seen how technology has become a big part of a secretary’s world. The student records systems have changed over the years, online grade cards, parent portals, student records, etc. When I started working at the school we used electric typewriters and typed all the student’s schedules on cards. Technology has made office work much faster. We now have IPads, IPod Touch, computers, and laptops to communicate with each other. . Other changes that I witnessed were the different superintendents and principals that served Canton R-V High school during my career. Plans after retirement: After retirement, I plan to enjoy spending quality time with my children and grandchildren. I want to go to Columbia to watch my granddaughters play ball and dance. I also plan to enjoy watching my grandsons involved in their many sports in Canton and Palmyra. Traveling is also on the agenda. Things that you will miss the most: I will definitely miss working with the teachers and staff here at Canton High School and Elementary School. My heartfelt thanks goes out to the secretaries who are not only my coworkers but also my good friends. Everyone has been wonderful to work with and I will always remember the great memories I have from both schools.

Cedar Falls School Couple complete High School Credits to receive diploma Rita Cox Reporter
Cedar Falls Senior Responses Seniors were asked to provide information concerning their future plans, activities in which they participated in during high school, their favorite memory of school, which teacher had influenced them and their interests or hobbies.

Crystal and Hunter McCutchan will receive their high school diplomas from Cedar Falls School, a few years older than the other graduates. They had both quit high school before graduating, Hunter at Highland and Crystal at Cedar Falls. They both needed just a few more credits to graduate and decided last year that they would continue their education. Crystal said committing to something as a couple was easier for them, they both pushed each other and encouraged each other to continue. Raising a family, working and other commitments is tough while going to school, trying to study was sometimes a challenge. Mr. Wyatt at Cedar Falls made it possible for them to both complete their educations. Crystal said he would be available to answer questions and accommodate their busy schedules. He did a lot to support their education and make it possible for them to both graduate. It took them about six months to complete their studies. Crystal is currently enrolled online at Penn-Foster for bookkeeping courses and Hunter is employed at Ursa Farmers Co-op. Hunter is the son of Steve and Tina McCutchan and Crystal is the daughter of Terry and Marilyn Laudell. They have two children, four year old Chevelle and eleven month old Tucker. They are happy they will graduate at the same time.
