Primary Election To Be Held Tuesday BY RITA COX Reporter

LIVESTOCK STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVING THE DROUGHT An informational meeting will be held Friday, August 3 at 1 p.m. at the Canton Comfort Inn in Canton, to discuss livestock strategies for surviving the drought. Monte Rowland, Feed Specialist with Ursa Farmers Coop and Travis Meteer, Extension Educator of commercial Agriculture with the University of Illinois will offer tips and advice on coping with limited feed supplies and other options for maintaining cattle herds through next spring. All livestock producers and interested parties are invited to attend.

Missouri’s Primary election is Tuesday, August 7. In Lewis County, there are several races, three county issues and one state issue. A copy of the official ballots appear in this edition. Polling locations are also listed. Voters must choose the party ballot from which they wish to pick candidates, but choosing a ballot does not mean a voter has to be registered in that party, because Missouri is a non-partisan state. In the November General Election, people will have one ballot and will pick from the choices made in the primary

election. Voters statewide will decide on constitutional amendment No. 2, which states “shall the Missouri constitution be amended to ensure- that the right of Missouri citizens to express their religious beliefs shall not be infringed. That school children have the right to pray and acknowledge God voluntarily in their schools; and that all public schools shall display the Bill of Rights of the United States constitution. It is estimated this proposal will result in little or no costs or saving for state and local governmental offices.” In local issues Proposition F states: Shall the County of Lewis adopt the Local

Option Fence Law as set forth in Sections 272.210 through Section 272.370 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri? Proposition R states: Shall the County of Lewis make permanent (originally imposed January 1, 1989) a countywide sales tax at the rate of three-eighths (3/8) of one (1) percent for the purposes of improving bridges, and other capital improvements in the Road & Bridge Fund, which would otherwise terminate December 31, 2016, or be renewed January 1, 2017? (Estimated savings to the County of $4,000.00 every four years). Proposition S states: Shall the County of Lewis make

permanent a countywide sales tax, which became effective October 1, 1989, of three-eighths (3/8) of one (1) percent for general revenue to be used for the general operations of the County, which would otherwise terminate September 30, 2014, or be renewed beginning October 1, 2014? (Estimated savings to the County of $4,000.00 every five years) Local candidates were asked to submit a profile to the Press-News Journal and responses appear on page 3A. Those wanting more information on the local county issues can contact the County Clerk’s office in Monticello at (573) 767-


MOTORCYCLE FATALITY NEAR EWING A motorcycle crash, one half mile north of Ewing on Route C, claimed the life of a Ewing man on July 25. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Benjamin C. Pratt of Ewing, Mo., died when a 2001 Harley Davison motorcycle he was driving ran off the west side of the roadway. Pratt was apparently thrown from the vehicle. Authorities estimate the time of accident around 8:50 p.m. A passing motorist discovered the accident. Assisting were the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department, Ewing Fire Department and the Lewis county Ambulance Service. This is the 21st fatal traffic accident in the patrol’s 16 county area this year. An obituary for Pratt appears in this edition. Photo by Rita Cox

Some county residents reported receiving a small amount of rain last week. These clouds over LaGrange looked as though they might produce some rain, but most residents in that area received less than half an inch. Hot weather and little chance of rain is predicted for the next few days.

Gov. Nixon announces emergency program for agriculture The Missouri Soybean Association reports that Gov. Jay Nixon recently announced an emergency program to assist farmers in accessing water for crops and livestock. Farmers across Missouri have been highly impacted by hay and water shortages as a result of the extreme heat and drought conditions. Nixon declared a state of emergency on July 23, due to concern for crop and livestock producers, fire and public risk. At the request of Nixon, earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture declared agricultural disaster in all 114 Missouri counties so that farmers could be eligible for federal assistance. “Because of the shortage of hay and the stress on their animals from the heat, livestock producers have been especially hard-hit by the extreme weather conditions affecting almost the entire state of Missouri,” Gov. Nixon said. The emergency program, now available through the State Soil and Water Districts Commission, will aide farmers who propose a water project that brings immediate benefit to crops or livestock and not adversely affect a public water supply.

Traditionally, soil and water cost-share programs provide 75 percent of project cost. Under this emergency program, 90 percent of costs will be covered, with a maximum cost-share project of $20,000. In addition to the emergency cost-share program, Gov. Nixon has established the Agriculture Water Resource Technical Review Team. The team will consist of Missouri Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources staff, who have expertise in water and resource management. The team will aide in processing applications and assist in implementing the emergency cost-share program, so that all applications receive immediate attention within the 72 hour time period. Farmers must apply by Aug. 6, 2012, at their local soil and water district office. They can also file an application online at To access a hay directory or other resources online visit The Missouri Soybean Association (MSA) is a statewide membership organization designed to increase the profitability of Missouri soybean farmers through legislative advocacy, public policy initiatives and education efforts across the state.

Patrol Reminds Motorists: Avoid Driving Into Smoke According to the U.S. Drought Monitor Report released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture this month, 93 percent of Missouri is experiencing severe to extreme drought conditions. Unfortunately, these extremely dry conditions have heightened the danger of fire throughout Missouri. Missouri firefighters have already worked numerous fires along roadways. Colonel Ron Replogle, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, cautions Missouri drivers to avoid driving in areas where smoke from these fires affects visibility.

When smoke affects visibility on a roadway, drivers must exercise extreme caution. The best decision is not to drive in smoke. If one must drive under these conditions, there are actions that drivers should take to protect themselves and their passengers. • Slow down. Don’t over drive sight distance. • Turn on low-beam headlights. • If the smoke becomes so thick that a driver cannot see well enough to keep driving, pull all the way off the pavement, stop, and turn on emergency flashers.

• The space between a vehicle and the roadway should be sufficient so that it can safely exit the vehicle without obstructing traffic. • Report the hazard to the nearest Missouri State Highway Patrol troop headquarters or local law enforcement, so that steps can be taken to warn other drivers about the hazard. The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Emergency Report number is 1-800-525-5555 or *55 on a cellular phone. Notify local law enforcement by calling 9-1-1.

DIY Canvas Name Board I wanted to create something cute for my daughter’s room, but I was lacking time and tons of extra cash to do some of the cute ideas that I’d found online. Fortunately, I discovered a project that someone had pinned on the online board Pinterest. What you will need: - Canvas. You can buy these in a two pack at Wal-Mart for less than five I needed three packs because Amaya’s name has five letters. I chose to go with the 8x10 size. (About the size of a piece of printer paper) Also, I bought the canvas that was stretched over a wooden frame because I like the way it looks, you can also buy the flat canvas, and with the flat canvas, there should be no need for the paint. - Mod Podge, which is decoupage glue that dries white. It’s around four or five bucks as well, but some people have learned to make it themselves for less and tutorials can be found online. - A small paintbrush. - Scrapbook paper. - Acrylic paint. - Scissors. - Letters. I just so happened to have a Cricut that my husband bought me for our anniversary, so I used one of the cartridges to cut out the letters, if you don’t have a Cricut, I also would suggest buying letters (scrapbook or thin wooden letters). All in all, the project shouldn’t cost more than $20, which is actually a little steep in my opinion, but I think it makes up for itself in ease. Step One: Begin by cutting your scrapbook paper to the size that you need it. (If you bought the canvas that was stretched over the wooden frame, don’t worry about cutting the scrapbook paper to cover the white places on the sides, just cut enough to cover the front because the sides will be painted later.) So, I cut my scrapbook paper to

BARTLETT be 8x10 inches. Step Two: After the scrapbook paper is cut for all of your canvas, break out the mod podge and the paintbrush. I found that I got better results when I painted the glue to the backside of the scrap booking paper and then applied it to the canvas as opposed to painting the glue to the canvas. There were less air bubbles and it was easier to smooth out the air bubbles that were there. Step Three: While they are drying, prepare your letters. If you bought letters, they are already precut so you don’t have to worry about the size. If they are wooden, paint them with a color of your choice or leave them as they are. If you’re working with a Cricut, it may be best to test your letter sizes. Some of my letters I made were 6 and 3/4” while others were 7 1/4”. I wanted them to all appear the same size, even if they technically weren’t. Step Four: Glue your letters to the center of the scrapbook-covered canvas. If they are made of paper or cardstock, use the mod podge over them as well. Allow time to dry. Step Five: After all the glue has dried, paint the outside rim of the canvas with the acrylic paint. For my project, I chose a baby pink color since the name board is going into Amaya’s room. Your completed project should end up looking like this:

BACKWARD GLANCES From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers 25 Years Ago The Press-News Journal August 1, 1987 The fleet of James Caldwell’s Canton Marine Towing business continues to grow. The Sir Robert and the Sir Fredrick will be christened during Canton’s River Heritage Days. The other nine named boats are Sir Douglas, Sir James, Sir Joseph, Sir Randall, Sir William, Sirene, Sir J’etta, Sir Larry J and Sir Earl. Two other boats are being rebuilt and are yet to be “Sir” named. They are the Lindwood and the Bessie Catherine. The Norris Hinton family of Monticello was recently named as the 1987 Lewis County State Fair Family. A Canton woman, Regan Kenner, set a world record in the 200 meter breast stroke in a Central Masters Swim meet at SIU Carbondale. Kenner took a remarkable 4.6 seconds off the former time for women in the age group of 60 -64. Additionally she broke four existing Central Masters record and took first place in all five of the events she entered. Mrs. Kenner, who swims mostly breast stroke, and originally entered competition only last September at the Illinois State Senior Olympics, says she is competition largely to prove the viability of the breast stroke as a racing stoke for longer distances. 50 Years Ago The Press-News Journal August 5, 1962

FROM OUR READERS To the Editor, With our area as well as all of Missouri having been declared an agricultural disaster we must look closely at how our money is being spent. The REC is essential to farmers. Therefore this is the time to examine the amounts we are paying the Board members. Anyone can callthe REC and be given the 990. This shows the amounts paid to Board members. I did not know until recently they were being paid. It has come to my attention that one Board member has been President of the Board for several years, he is also President of the Associated Board in


Springfield, Mo., and is on the Board of Central Missouri Power Cooperative and M&A Electric Power Cooperative. By serving on these boards he is receiving a great deal of money. The Northeast MO Library Board does not receive any payment and by MO law we must pass the Presidency from County to County, therefore knowing each county better. It might be well for the REC to have elected Board member share the Presidency. It is important that we consider who we vote for to serve as our Board members. Lucretia Story Craw Canton, Mo.


Field operations of your soil and water conservation district began three years ago, Aug. 1, 1959. Since that time much activity in the field of soil and water conservation has taken place all over the county. The county program is directed and managed by an elected board of supervisors who meet monthly in the district office at Monticello. The present board consists of Hurley Burke, Monticello; Glenn Daggs, Ewing; Stuart Tracey, LaGrange; Roy Haden, LaBelle and Wayne Reidenbach, Canton. Duke, a German Shepard dog, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Richard Maples of Canton, won fourth place in the graduation exercises at the Obedience School,

sponsored by the Quincy Kennel Club. Duke passed all requirements as an outstanding canine in obedience, intelligence and general adaptability. 75 Years Ago The Press-News Journal August 5, 1937 The Otto Bruner American Legion, hosted a meeting in Canton with 16 counties represented. At this meeting a presentation of a medal was made to John Wills, 27, who rescued George Meek from downing in the Mississippi River Aug. 12, 1936 at the risk of his own life. St. Joseph’s Church has just been completely redecorated by Ode Winkler and Roach Ferguson. All who have seen the work have praised very highly the efforts of these painters. Winkler is to be commended for his artistic work. Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Noel of Canton passed their 64th wedding anniversary July 31. The bride, Miss Jennie Funk, was the daughter of Mr. And Mrs. I.H.

Missouri to have “Back to School” sales tax holiday August 3 marks the beginning of Missouri’s 9th annual “Back-to-School” Sales Tax Holiday - a time for shoppers in Missouri to save money on computers, clothes and school supplies. By state law, the sales tax holiday begins on the first Friday in August and continues through the following Sunday. This year, the three-day holiday begins at midnight on Friday, Aug. 3, and runs through Sunday, Aug. 5. During this time period, the state’s 4.225 percent sales tax will not be assessed on certain purchases made in Missouri. Local governments can participate in the holiday and increase the savings for shoppers, or opt out of the holiday and maintain local tax revenue during the holiday. The state sales tax will not be charged on the following items during the holiday: *Clothing that does not have a value of more than $100. Eligible clothing includes standard items of apparel worn on or about the body, and includes footwear. It also includes material to make school uniforms or other school clothing. It does NOT include accessories such as watches, jewelry, handbags, handkerchiefs, umbrellas, scarves, ties, headbands and belt buckles. *School supplies, not exceeding $50 per purchase, that are used in a standard classroom for educational purposes. School supplies include textbooks, notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, crayons, art supplies, rulers, book bags, backpacks, handheld calculators, chalk, maps and

globes. School supplies do NOT include CD players, headphones, sporting equipment, portable telephones, copiers or other office equipment. *Personal computers that don’t cost more than $3,500 and computer peripheral devices that don’t exceed $3,500. A personal computer can be a laptop, desktop or tower computer system which consists of a central processing unit, random access memory, a storage drive, display monitor, keyboard and other related devices. Peripheral devices include items such as a disk drive, memory module, CD drive, microphone, modem, motherboard, mouse, speakers, printer, scanner, sound card or video card. Computer software is considered a school supply and is free from sales tax if its value is less than $350. Although anyone making qualified purchases does not have to be a student to benefit from the holiday, the sales tax exemption event is commonly referred to as the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday because it occurs near the beginning of the traditional school year for most students. A total of 166 cities, 49 counties and 71 special districts have chosen not to participate in the holiday. A list of the local governments that have opted out of the holiday and the answers to frequently asked questions about the holiday can be accessed at tax/business/sales/taxholiday/school/. Other questions can be directed to or (573) 7512836.

COMMUNITY NEWS Celebrity waiters raise money for the Buddy Pack program The Buddy Pack Program helps students who may not have access to nutritional food at home during the weekends. Over 100 students in the Canton school district qualify for free and reduced lunches. For many of these children, access to nutritional foods over the weekend is not available. To help combat childhood hunger, the Canton community has teamed with the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri to offer the Buddy Pack Program. Buddy Packs are backpacks filled with kidfriendly, nutritious food that students take home over the weekend or holiday periods to supplement their meals when there is not enough for them to eat at home. After the weekend, the kids bring their empty Buddy Pack back to school to be refilled by local volunteers. The program continues week after week throughout the school year or as needed to keep the growing youngsters happy and healthy. To help with the growing need, local celebrites, Nurst Diane Jorgensen, Richard Horner and Sgt. Cory Bennett of the Canton Police Department waited on tables and served customers at Primos on July 25 and collected tips to be donated to the program. Donations are needed to fill the packs and can be sent to Buddy Packs, Robyn Jarvis, administrator, 307 N. 6th Street, Canton, Mo. 63435. Kiwanas has graciously donated the

back packs. Anyone wishing to assist them with that effort can send their donations to Kiwanas at Richard Horner, Shelter

Insurance, 408 Lewis St, Canton. Celebrity Wait Staff, consisting of Nurse Diane Jorgensen, Richard Horn-

er, and Sgt. Cory Bennett of the Canton PD earned this evening at $222.13, which will fund one full Buddy Pack for the year, and al-

most 25% of a second one! We are at 41% of the Buddy Pack Goal of $18,000. This will fund 100 buddy packs for low-

income Canton RV school children.

MoDOT Waives Fee for Moving Wide Hay Loads Severe weather throughout Missouri and surrounding states has prompted a special hauling permit to help farmers move hay as needed for livestock. The permit will allow for the movement of wider loads through Dec. 31 of this year. At the Department of Agriculture’s request, the Missouri Department of Transportation is waiving the fee for blanket oversize permits to haul wide loads of hay. The fee is waived through Dec. 31 on loads up to 12 feet, four inches wide, that are of legal height, length and weight. In addition to the savings of up to $64, the waiver will allow hay movements to take place over holidays and at night, a practice not normally allowed. At night, or when visibility is less than 500 feet, drivers must use a reflective, oversized load sign and clearance lights instead of flags at the edges of their loads. “Missouri farmers are facing challenges as a result of the extremely dry conditions our state is experiencing,” said Director of Agriculture Dr. Jon Hagler. “Waiving the permit fee for our state’s farmers and haulers transporting hay will certainly help livestock and crop producers continue doing what they do best. We appreciate MoDOT’s continued cooperation and support of Missouri’s agriculture industry throughout these severe conditions.” Because many highways are under repair and might have narrow lanes, drivers are expected to review their route for work zone restrictions before beginning their trip. They must adhere to all other permit requirements, such as proper signing and lighting, and they must stop at weigh stations. Farmers should call MoDOT’s Motor Carrier Services office at 1-800-877-8499 to report the year, make and license plate number of their power unit and provide their business name and address. Motor Carrier Services will then issue the permits by fax or email. More resources and information about drought conditions, as well as a directory for producers needing to buy and sell hay are available online at

Missouri casinos educate employees and patrons during Responsible Gaming Education Week During the 15th annual Responsible Gaming Education Week (RGEW), July 30 to August 4, Missouri casino employees will serve as responsible gaming ambassadors as casinos focus on the gaming industry’s “All In” corporate social responsibility campaign. Responsible Gaming Education Week was created by the American Gaming Association (AGA) in 1998 to promote responsible gaming and increase awareness of problem gambling issues among employees and customers nationwide. “Responsible gaming is an ongoing priority of Missouri casino employees, from top executives to front-line team members,” said Mike Winter, executive director of the Missouri Gaming Association. “This year, our focus is on educating casino

employees so they can share responsible gaming messages with their families, friends and casino patrons.” Missouri casinos also will provide free responsible gaming brochures and other materials at every casino property during Responsible Gaming Education Week. Brochures include “The House Advantage: A Guide to Understanding the Odds,” “Taking the Mystery Out of the Machine: A Guide to Understanding Slot Machines” and “Keeping It Fun: A Guide to Responsible Gaming.” “The House Advantage: A Guide to Understanding the Odds,” explains the casino’s “house advantage,” the mathematical probabilities of various popular games and other factors a player should take into account when gambling, such as the amount wagered, the time spent playing a game and, to a degree, a player’s skill at certain games. The brochure also busts common myths such as so-called gambling “hot streaks.” The AGA and the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) are teaming this year on a

research-based guidebook for human resources and employee assistance professionals with answers to frequently asked questions about gambling disorders and responsible gaming. The free guidebook is available for download at The Missouri Gaming Association and its casino company members sponsor and fund year-round programs to address responsible gaming issues. Every Missouri casino property has a designated employee who serves as the director of responsible gaming programs for that location. Missouri responsible gaming programs include: • 1-888-BETSOFF - a statewide telephone crisis line and referral service for problem gambling. • Project 21 – a scholarship competition that addresses underage gambling; • Operation Bet Smart – an awareness program that focuses on compulsive gambling; • Alcohol Awareness Programs – promote responsible consumption of alcohol.

The American Board, a non-profit dedicated to recruiting and certifying community-based teachers in Missouri, will host a public event in Canton on how local residents can become certified Missouri teachers. Attendees will learn what to expect in a career as a teacher and receive advisement on a personalized path to certification. Missouri Teacher Certification Specialist Amanda Brown will lead the event. Session will begin Wednesday, August 8 at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. at the Canton Public Library, 409 Lewis St. Evening sessions start at 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Comfort Inn, 1701 Oak St. The event is free and open to the public. “Anyone with a bachelor’s degree can become a full-time teacher within a year as long as they plan the right path.” Brown said. “We are searching for people who have reallife experience and want to apply that experience in the classroom.”

To date over 650 Missouri teachers have earned their certification through the American Board. Brown personally helped over 60 Missourians become certified since joining the American Board last year. Brown can be contacted at or (816) 8859641. Visit www.abcte. org for more information. The American Board is a state approved teacher certification non profit that certifies career changers, substitute teachers, paraprofessionals and outof-field teachers. Founded in 2001 via a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, the American Board’s focus is building rural communities through education and employment. The American Board’s program allows highly-knowledgeable individuals from within their community to earn certification without additional class time, student teaching or state exams.
