ABBEY Two LaGrange residents were arrested July 9 after Lewis County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of an ongoing sexual assault in Canton. Deputies said Montega Abbey, 40, and Jamie Spindler, 29, taken into custody for sexual assault. Deputies and Canton Police officers assisted the victim at the Westport Apartments on Mo. 81 in Canton. The victim was taken to Blessing Hospital in Quincy for treatment. Abbey and Spindler were lodged in the Lewis County Jail on $10,000 bond each.
SUGAR CREEK BRIDGE CLOSED Until further notice, the former Sugar Creek Bridge on Route 16 will be closed. The bridge is scheduled to reopen late next week.
COUNTY BURN BAN Residents are reminded that Lewis County is under a burn ban until further notice due to the dry conditions.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon visited Ewing, Mo., Tuesday, July 17. He met with local farmers and citizens at the Greg Sharpe business located on the old Ewing school grounds. While talking with farmers Nixon was notified that all Missouri counties, including Lewis County, have received disaster declarations, making farmers eligible for drought assistance. Commenting on the disaster declaration in a press release Nixon said “This designation can help livestock and crop farmers across the state who are suffering great losses because of the heat and lack of rain,” Nixon said in a news release. “We’re going to contin-
ue to stand with farmers during this ongoing disaster and afterward, to help with their recovery. This designation is another part of that process.” Nixon greeted and shook hands with visitors and was then seated with area farmers who had the chance to express their concerns and ideas about the heat and drought conditions. Nixon and Dr. Jon Hagler, Director of the Missouri Department of Agriculture, along with Missouri Senator Brian Munzlinger and Representative Tom Shively. Senator Munzlinger urged farmers to keep in contact with all their local farm agencies who are there to help them through this crisis. Nixon stressed the importance of agriculture in the state of Missouri, the need to help our farmers and the need to
keep the younger generation involved in agriculture. He also thanked all farmers for their hard work and dedication and said he was in Ewing today to listen to the farmers and their problems and find solutions. He told the group to think outside the tradition of agriculture as many farmers also have small businesses and our economic growth depends on the growth of small businesses. He also said trade is important to farmers and with Missouri’s infrastructure and the advantage of having the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers to transport our products, Missouri could lead the way in exports. Nixon had a brief question and answer period with reporters after meeting with the public. The Press-News Journal asked the Governor what

the average tax paying Missourian can do to help farmers during this crisis and Nixon replied “Show the farmers support through this crisis and in the months to come by continuing to buy local and also work with the younger generation shows Missouri will be a leader in agriculture for generations to come.” Nixon then traveled to Greg Sharpe’s corn field west of Highland High School to look first hand at how the heat and lack of rain has had an effect on the corn crop. He then traveled to the Earl Kempe farm near Lewistown to view a soybean field. Nixon had other appearances scheduled in other parts of the state to view crop damage and the toll the drought has had all over Missouri.

Ted Rights, is a candidate for Congress in the Missouri Sixth District, which includes Lewis, Knox, Macon, Clark and Monroe Counties. He and his wife stopped by the Press-News Journal in Canton to introduce himself to the citizens of northeast Missouri. Rights, age 73, is a medical doctor who has never ran for public office and decided to run when the current representative voted to resist and repeal the healthcare reform bill. As a doctor with over one third of his patients without health insurance and the others not sure if they will have health insurance in the years to come, he feels that something needs to be done. Rights says the Obama plan may not be perfect, but at least it is a start and we have to start somewhere. He believes the middle class is disappearing and only the elite benefit from the current system. He wants to be a voice for the average American who works hard and needs medical insurance. He believes in the power of the consumer and that the economy works better when everyone can spend, not just a privileged few. He also said that our politicians

BUY LEWIS COUNTY Country Corner Grocery Store in Lewistown will soon celebrate their one year anniversary and owners Brad Stice and Robyn Stark are thrilled with the response and support from the community over the past year. The owners say the business has grown and the people continue to shop and support the store. The Lewistown and area business community has also helped them to succeed. Fleer Tire helped them unload trucks for several months, another company lent them equipment to help unload trucks. Other businesses have also lent support in various ways, which has been much appreciated. Affiliated Foods Midwest grocery supplier helped the owners get started and came to Lewistown to help set up the store, train, advise and anything else the business needed. Stice said at first some vendors were reluctant to supply the store but after seeing their growth, vendors are now more than happy to have their products at Country Corner. Stice also said over 60 percent of what is stocked comes from customer requests, and they pride themselves on being able to accommodate what is requested. They also continue to improve and update the business to better serve the community. Lewistown needed a grocery store and with the LaBelle Foods store closing, residents had to drive a long way to get even basic grocery needs. Stark said customers always comment on how much they appreciate having a grocery store in the area. They have also seen an increase in business since the Sugar Creek bridge has been closed for replacement. Stice said his grandfather, Warren (Buzz) Stice owned a grocery store near Midway in the mid 1930s and he has a coin bag from the business. The owners are happy to offer friendly service, a wide selection of grocery items and a sense of community. They also have a delivery service available. They also accept food stamps and WIC coupons and last month over 400 WIC checks were used in the store. They also recently received a health inspection and scored 100 percent. They like to keep a clean, attractive environment for their customers, with quality goods and service. During deer season they saw a lot of new customers and they have had several people from out of the area stop in to see the store and experience a small town grocery store. The deli and baked goods departments have proven to be very popular and have gotten a lot of positive feedback from their customers. The store has grown to 12 employees, two of whom are from the Wider Opportunities organization. Brad Stice said his other business Natural Hoof Care has also picked up from customers coming into to store and finding out about the hoof business. He takes care

EDITORIAL ADVENTURES OF WONDER MOM
Cleaning the stains out of your fabric seats in your car I discovered this little fascinating trick accidentally actually. One day, while on our way to daycare, my wonderful little daughter figured out how to pop the lid off of her sippy cup (unknown to me). When we arrived at daycare, I was greeted with the sight of orange juice all over my back seat. I scrubbed it up with wet wipes and thought that I’d gotten it all up, but was terribly incorrect. After a few days, my entire car smelled of old, nasty juice. I realized, there were obviously some places that I didn’t get (like under the car sear). So, one night I broke out my scrubbing brush, some warm water and some soap, and went to scrubbing. When I saw all the stains it got out of my backseat, I knew I had to share it with other people. Items you will need: - 1/2 cup Passion Fruits Fabuloso. This is a very inexpensive cleaning product (depending on where you buy it and the size
BARTLETT you buy it in, it should cost anywhere from $14) that can be bought at most drug stores, grocery stores, or even at dollar stores. It’s also great to clean your bathrooms, for mopping, or cleaning your kitchen. - 1 1/2 cups warm water (the warmer the water, the easier it is to clean stubborn stains) - A bowl - A scrubbing brush or sponge - Dry washcloth(s)
This photo of LaGrange was supplied by Mark Tanner with commentary by Curtis Farr. The photo is taken from about where the railroad tracks are on Washington Street looking west up Route C hill. At left was the old LaGrange Elevator, torn down in 1978. The Palace Feed Store was later used by Producers Creamery as a warehouse, torn down in 1966. The corner building with the turret was recently torn down. The building at the right was the Marks grocery store, later Solter’s Supperette and destroyed in the 1973 flood, rebuilt as Solter’s Hardware store, now Town and Country Bank. Across the street on the right was once Wiseman’s Barbershop in the 1950s and 60s and torn down in 1983. Caseys now occupies the spot.
LEWIS COUNTY HISTORY
BACKWARD GLANCES From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers
Begin by mixing the Fabuloso with your warm water. (It seems like a lot of soap, but the higher concentration of soap greatly assists in getting rid of the stains.)
Survey the area that you want to clean. I simply dipped my scrubbing brush into the bowl and began scrubbing, but you can also pour a small amount over the stain if that is easier. After a few minutes of scrubbing, you should begin to see the majority of your stains magically disappearing. I had one stain that remained, which has been in my car for about four or five years now, and I’m not sure what caused the stain.
25 Years Ago The Press-News Journal July 19, 1987 On Aug. 4, the City of Canton will ask the voters to approve new tax ceilings for the general revenue, the levee, and the parks and recreation funds. The city, due to state law (the Hancock Amendment), can only take the same amount of total tax money as the preceding year without going to the voters to approve a new tax ceiling. With the loss of Revenue Sharing money and the ever increasing cost of insurance, equipment and supplies, the replacement of large pieces of equipment and maintenance of services as they are now will be almost impossible. A career of 34 years of service with Union Electric Company will be concluded with the retirement of Betty F. Vaughn has served as clerk, special clerk, and regional clerk. Mrs. Vaughn was born in LaGrange and is a graduate of LaGrange High School. She also attended Kirksville State Teachers College and Gem City Business College in Quincy. 45 Years Ago The Press-News Journal July 20, 1967
Wipe away the excess soap and water with dry washcloths, and prepared to be a bit disgusted. I had no idea my backseat was that filthy! I wiped my seat down with two washcloths and both of them went from being white to a very dingy brown.
In the end, I was incredibly pleased with my final result. All my stains were gone, and my entire car smelled like a green apple flavored candy.

Missouri Soybean Programs Assist in Farmer Yield Day at Bradford Research Farm Over 300 farmers and AG industry representatives attended the University of Missouri Farmer Yield Day, July 12, 2012, at Bradford Research Center near Columbia, Mo. What has been known as “Farmer Field Day,” in the past, has taken on a new name, “Farmer Yield Day,” to emphasize the importance of providing information that is practical for farmers to implement on their farms to increase yields. During the day-long event, farmers learned management practices to increase efficiency and profitability as well as enjoyed lunch, sponsored by the Missouri Pork Association. Following lunch, a farmer panel led a discussion about crop conditions in their area. Attendees had the opportunity to take farm wagon tours focusing on crop and pest management, as well as crop production. Hail damage evaluation, a drip irrigation demonstration, herbicide injury, and insect identification were just a few among many stops available onsite. The event was sponsored by Certified Crop Adviser, Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council, Missouri Corn Merchandising Council and Missouri Pork Association.

PSC Reminds Missourians Of The Potential Dangers Of Electricity The Missouri Public Service Commission reminds Missourians of the potential dangers of electricity and urges proactive measures to prevent accidents and possible loss of life. Beginning in 2010, regulated utilities have been required to more extensively report incidents to the PSC. There have been 30 electric-related incidents involving utility employees and/or the general public. Electrical current can
be dangerous, and persons should always use caution. Here are a few safety tips to remember: assume that all overhead wires are energized at lethal voltages. Never assume that a wire is safe to touch even if it is down or appears to be insulated. Be careful when using aluminum ladders or other tall equipment around overhead lines. Never touch a fallen overhead power line. Call the electric utility company to report fallen electrical lines.

The Lewis County Fair held last week was a great success according the Fair Board President Brenda Wright. Wright said, “ I think the fair was one of the better ones we’ve had in recent years. We added several exhibits, had lots of free entertainment and our facilities and grounds were really polished this year. I want to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers and the communities for their continued support. I feel that our attendance as a whole was steady and our nightly events went off pretty much without a hitch. I had very positive comments about different things at the fair and it really makes me feel good and makes it easier to get over this one and start planning the next. I want to let people know that we try our best to provide a quality fair within a small budget and I think we did a good job this year. I am always looking for feedback on what people are looking for at the fair, what they liked and what they didn’t like. I want to thank everybody once again for all the support.”

Fields enclosed, how. 272.220. All fields and enclosures in which livestock are kept or placed shall be enclosed by a lawful fence. Trespass by stock, damages and compensation--action--lien. 272.230. If any horses, cattle or other stock trespass upon the premises of another, the owner of the animal shall for the first trespass make reparation to the party injured for the true value of the damages sustained, to be recovered with costs before an associate circuit judge, or in any court of competent jurisdiction, and for any subsequent trespass the party injured may put up the animal or animals and take good care of them and immediately notify the owner, who shall pay to the taker-up the amount of the damages sustained, and such compensation as shall be reasonable for the taking up and keeping of the animals, before he shall be allowed to remove them, and if the owner and taker-up cannot agree upon the amount of the damages and compensation either party may make complaint to an associate circuit judge of the county, setting forth the fact of the disagreement, and the associate circuit judge shall be possessed of the cause, and shall issue a summons to the adverse party and proceed with the cause as in other civil cases. If the owner recovers, he shall recover his costs and any damages he may have sustained, and the associate circuit judge shall issue an order requiring the taker-up to deliver to him the animals. If the taker-up recover, the judgment shall be a lien upon the animals taken up, and, in addition to a general judgment and execution, he shall have a special execution against the animals to pay the judgment rendered and costs. Adjoining landowners obligated to build fence--when--exceptions. 272.235. If there is a need for a fence by either of two joining landowners both shall be obligated to build and maintain a fence under the provisions of sections 272.210 to 272.370. Nothing in sections 272.210 to 272.370 shall prevent joining landowners from agreeing that no fence is needed between their property Partition fences--owner may demand payment, when. 272.240. Whenever the owner of real estate desires to erect or construct a lawful fence which wholly or partially borders the land of another, he shall notify the other owner that he desires a division fence. If within ninety days after receiving the notice, the other landowner has not erected or constructed one-half of the division fence, the owner desiring the fence may apply to the associate division of the circuit court for an order to proceed with the construction and ordering the other landowner to pay one-half the value of so much thereof, as borders his land, and upon the payment shall own an undivided one-half of the fence; except that no owner shall be required to pay more than one-half the value of a lawful fence of four barbed wires, regardless of the type fence constructed. The associate division of the circuit court costs shall be taxed against the other landowner. Duty of judge if parties disagree on value--fence viewers to estimate. 272.250. If the parties interested fail to agree as to the value of one-half of the fence, the owner of the fence may apply to a circuit or associate circuit judge of the county, who shall without delay issue an order to three disinterested householders of the township, not of kin to either party, reciting the complaint, and requiring them to view the fence, estimate the value thereof, and make return under oath to the judge on the day named in the order. Value of fence may be recovered, when. 272.260. If the person thus assessed or charged with the value of one-half of any fence, under the provisions of sections 272.210 to 272.370 shall neglect or refuse to pay over to the owner of the fence the amount so awarded, the same may be recovered before a court of competent jurisdiction. Fence owners may agree on maintenance--agreement recorded--refusal to agree, procedure. 272.270. 1. The several owners may, in writing, agree upon the portion of partition fences between their lands which shall be erected and maintained by each, which writing shall describe the lands and the parts of the fences so assigned, be signed and acknowledged by them, and filed and recorded in the office of the recorder of deeds of the county or counties in which they are situated. Any such agreement shall bind the makers, their heirs and assigns. 2. When one owner desires to make a division of the fence between his land and an adjoining
landowner refuses to agree to a division, then the provisions of section 272.280 may be used to effect a division which shall be recorded in the office of the recorder of deeds in the county in which most of the fence is located. Duties of judge if parties disagree on repairs--fence viewers to designate. 272.280. If the parties cannot agree as to the part each shall have and keep in repair, either of them may apply to a circuit or associate circuit judge of the county who shall forthwith summon three disinterested householders of the township to appear on the premises, giving three days’ notice to each of the parties of the time and place where said viewers shall meet, and the viewers shall, under oath, designate the portion to be kept in repair by each of the parties interested, and notify them in writing of the same. Special partition fences--owner may demand payment, when. 272.290. Whenever the fence of any owner of real estate now erected or constructed, or which shall hereafter be erected, constructed or rebuilt, the same being thereafter a fence designed to restrain swine, sheep or other animals requiring special fences, borders the land of another or which becomes a part of the fence bordering the land of another and is used to enclose such animals owned by the other person, on demand made by the person owning the fence, the other person shall pay the owner one-half of the value of so much thereof as borders his land, and upon the payment shall own an undivided half of the fence; except that no owner shall be required to pay more than the amount which would have been required to erect, construct or rebuild a lawful fence of four barbed wires on his one-half of the fence. Fees of fence viewers, judge and sheriff--taxed as costs. 272.300. The persons appointed by the judge under sections 272.250 and 272.280 to discharge the duties therein specified, shall receive five dollars each per day for the time actually employed, which, together with the fees of the judge and sheriff, shall be taxed as costs in the case against the parties in proportion to their respective interests, and collected accordingly. Owners to repair division fence--remedy for failure. 272.310. Every person owning a part of a division fence shall keep the same in good repair according to the requirements of sections 272.210 to 272.370. Either party owning land adjoining a division fence may, upon the failure of any of the other parties, have all that part of the division fence belonging to the other parties repaired, upon the failure of the other party to do so, the repairing to be at the cost of the party so failing to repair his part of the fence. Division fence not to be removed--exceptions. 272.320. No division fence shall be removed without the consent of all the owners thereof, unless for the purpose of opening a public road or highway or making repairs. Application of law. 272.330. 1. The provisions of sections 272.240 to 272.350 shall apply to any division fence even though it may stand wholly upon one side of the division line. 2. The provisions of sections 272.210 to 272.370 shall not apply to counties which have all or partial open range. Judgment of judge may be reviewed in circuit court. 272.340. Any person aggrieved by any order or judgment of the judge made or entered under the provisions of sections 272.250 and 272.280 may have the same reviewed by a petition in the circuit court of the county wherein the proceedings were had, verified by affidavit. A copy of the petition shall be delivered to the adverse party at least fifteen days before the commencement of the next term of the court, and the original filed in the office of the clerk; provided, that the petition may be filed within thirty days after the order or judgment was made or rendered, and not afterward. Petition for review shall state what. 272.350. The petition shall set forth the grounds of objection, and upon the filing thereof the circuit court shall be possessed of the cause, and proceed to hear and determine the objections, and make such order or judgment as may be right and just in the premises. Provisions of law effective after election. 272.360. The provisions of sections 272.210 to 272.370 are hereby suspended in the several counties of this state until a majority of the legal voters of any county voting on the question at any general or special election called for that purpose shall decide to enforce the same in the county. Petition for election--notice--order of adoption. 272.370. The county commission may on its own motion and shall upon the petition of one hundred real estate owners of ten acres or more of the county submit to the voters at a general or special election the proposition for the adoption by the county of the provisions of sections 272.210 to 272.370. The commission shall cause notice of the election to be published in a newspaper published within the county, or if no newspaper is published within the county, in a newspaper published in an adjoining county, for three weeks consecutively, the last insertion of which shall be at least ten days before the day of the election, and by posting printed notices thereof at three of the most public places in each township in the county. If a majority of the voters voting on the proposition vote in favor of the adoption of the provisions of sections 272.210 to 272.370 the county commission shall issue an order declaring the adoption. From and after the issuance of the order the provisions of sections 272.210 to 272.370 shall be in full force and effect in the county and the provisions of sections 272.010 to 272.140 shall be suspended in the county. 1st Pub.

Highway Workers Now Lake Safety Day Protected Under Celebration to be held â€˜Move Overâ€™ Law at Mark Twain Lake For the Missouri Department of Transportation employees who spend their days on state highways, work just got a little safer. Governor Jay Nixon signed Senate Bill 611 into law on Monday, July 9, which expands the 2002 â€œSlow Down and Move Overâ€? law that protects law enforcement and emergency response vehicles parked on the side of the road. The new law, which takes effect Aug. 28, requires motorists to slow down or change lanes when approaching these vehicles, and now also includes MoDOT vehicles parked with amber and white lights flashing. Passage of the law was the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commissionâ€™s highest priority during the 2012 legislative session. Since 2000, four MoDOT employees have been killed on the job. Coincidentally, MoDOT and the Transportation Employees Association of Missouri will dedicate a new memorial for fallen MoDOT workers at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, July 16. The memorial is located on the Capitol grounds, near MoDOTâ€™s Central Office building in Jefferson City. The memorial is a tribute to the 128 employees who have been killed in the line of duty since 1946, and was completely funded with private donations.

Transportation Program After years of making great progress on state roadways, the Missouri Department of Transportation must now deal with the stark reality of funding levels that will barely take care of the existing transportation system. On July 11, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission approved the new 2013-2017 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, which shows a transportation construction program that has dropped from an average of $1.2 billion in recent years to about $700 million. The program includes all transportation projects planned by state and regional planning agencies for fiscal years 2013 through 2017 (July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2017). A $700 million program allows for some resurfacing projects and general maintenance of the existing transportation system, but cannot incorporate the types of construction projects that create jobs, increase safety, ease congestion or foster economic development. The 2013-2017 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program is available on MoDOTâ€™s web site, www. modot.org, and at MoDOT district and regional offices around the state.

Labor Of Love The yard of a LaGrange woman stops traffic on a daily basis BY RITA COX Reporter firstname.lastname@example.org
The yard of Carol Dobbs in LaGrange has caused a lot of attention from people driving by and stopping to enjoy the beauty of her many flowers. The yard is filled with many beautiful blooming hanging baskets, flower gardens and pots overflowing with pink and purple blooms. Mrs. Dobbs is a former nurse and now spends hours working in her yard. She has always enjoyed planting flowers and making her yard look nice even while maintaining a full time job. Her property is always a showcase of beauty. After retiring she had more time to spend outside and the results are amazing. This spring she planted 22 flats of super bubblegum petunias and wave petunias. Every January she calls Peters Greenhouse in Quincy and tells them what she is planning for the spring and they plant the seeds and have them ready for her when planting season comes. After all the planting, mulching, fertilizing and weeding, her green thumb is evident. She spends over an hour each day watering the plants. While she is working outside, she usually listens to classical music or audio books. She finds working in her yard is good exercise and very relaxing. LaGrange residents have enjoyed her yard for
many years which is always filled with bursts of color and with the location at Sixth and Washington, along Route C, the yard attracts the attention of many out of town people who drive by on the way to the casino or downtown LaGrange. Many people stop and take pictures and visit with her. She has had visitors from Japan, a motorcycle group, and others from all over the United States. Recently one gentleman from out of town stopped and offered her a marriage proposal. She wasn’t interested, but she did find it amusing. Her husband, Tom, passed away in 2002. He always encouraged and helped her with the gardening and she says he would have loved talking to the people who stop and admire the
flowers. Besides the annuals she plants, she has several perennials plants that come up every year. She enjoys the small animals that make her yard a home. She has a couple of birdbaths tucked away in the flower garden and she enjoys watching the differ-
