A Canton property owned by Pam Nelson was reported to be on fire on Friday, Aug. 10, around 2:30 p.m. When police vehicles arrived, signs of smoke billowed out from behind the doors and windows of the structure. The windy day caused the growing flame to be visible outside of the property and set ablaze some of the leaves on the tree behind it. The Canton Fire Department responded to the call and was assisted by the LaGrange and Monticello Fire Departments, police officers re-directed traffic as the firemen worked to put out the flame. Canton Fire Chief Jeff McReynolds called in State Fire Marshals to do an investigation, which revealed that the fire had been caused by an electrical short in the closet in one of the back rooms.

Burrell Smith recollections of REC

A young Bill Smith sits on the hood of a REA truck. His father Burrell Smith shares his memories of bringing electricity to Lewis County.

Burrell Smith, 94, is a lifelong resident of the Monticello community. He has generously shared his recollections of a time gone by in recent issues. Smith is a WWII veteran, community leader, family man, businessman, church member and his memories of Lewis County and its citizens are a valuable resource. Mr Smith recalls working for over 32 years as a REC lineman in Lewis County and the surrounding area. Burrell Smith recollections are sponsored by REC, which is celebrating 75 years of service to Lewis Clark and Knox Counties in 2012. Part one of his years as a lineman were in last week’s edition. Burrell Smith returned from WWII in 1945 and began his career with REC. Some of his co workers in the early years were Lester Daggs, Herb Evans and Melvin Rutledge. Starting wage was 60 cents an hour and when he retired in 1980 after 32 years, his wage was $8 an hour. Linemen were on call, if someone had a problem he went to fix it. The first house to get electricity turned on in rural Lewis County was the residence of Lynn Anderson, east of Monticello. In Monticello and surrounding area, telephone operators knew everyone and where they were. Nancy Breeding, Louella Smith and Lynnie Jenkins were usually the first to know if there was a power outage and they would ring up Burrell and tell him who was on the line and where the problem was. Burrell’s late wife, Ruth, would take calls when Burrell was out fixing a problem. With years of experience, she would ask the caller where they lived, if their neighbors had lights, if they had checked the fuses, etc. She would take care of the preliminary work to pinpoint the problem. Smith comments on the lifelong friendships he made while working as a lineman. Kenneth Penn started working for REC after high school and continued until retirement. They built a strong friendship, working together every day and sharing experiences. Power outages were common in the early days, Squirrels and coons would cause problems for the


customers. Electricity was new in the country, safety was a concern, but common sense was the best safety device he had. When he was on call by himself, he sometimes took his family along to help. Hanging a transformer took two people. There were no boom trucks to lift the lineman or equipment up in the air. Linemen would have to put on their heavy leather tool belt which weighed about 15 pounds, and they wore spikes which were strapped on their boots to be able to climb the pole. Imagine facing the day, in weather with temperatures in the 100s or below zero, knowing that during the day, you might have to climb several poles. It was and still is dangerous work. If the spikes weren’t dug in correctly, there was a good chance you would “skin the pole’, which means you slid down and encountered huge splinters along the way. The year before Smith retired, bucket trucks were put into service which enabled the lineman easier and safer access to the top of the pole. He installed seat belts in his work truck, and was then involved in a head-on collision. He wasn’t hurt, the other driver was, and to this day, he always wears his seatbelt.

Smith still has his tool belt and demonstrated how it was worn. It is amazing to think of the weight of the belt, the pole spikes that had to be strapped on, and the conditions endured to bring power to rural Missouri. On regular work days, he began work at 7:30 a.m., always arriving early to start the day. He usually brought a dinner bucker for lunch, being in rural areas all day, there was seldom a restaurant nearby. He recalls north of Canton, he could get a sandwich at Leeper’s for fifty cents. Other memories include while putting in the service to the Wyaconda Baptist Church, he recalls listening to Winston Churchill’s Iron Curtain speech. Nina Mason was reportedly a friend of Al Capone’s and only trusted Smith to come onto her property. In the early times, the lineman also had to collect delinquent bills, which was hard for him to do. He mainly remembers the feeling of joy when a farm would get electricity for the first time. Usually it was one light, hanging down in the middle of the room, but excitement would fill the air when a family pulled the switch and was brought into the modern world. Bringing

electricity to rural Missouri would help the farms prosper. Security lights would make farms more secure and farmers wouldn’t have to light a lantern every time they had to go to the barn. Once a neighbor had seen another’s light, they would want the same convenience.

In the 1950s, Rural Electric Co-Ops also sold appliances, ranges, water heaters, clothes dryers. They had a showroom at the office. The company would furnish all the material and labor to install the appliance. Farm wives had their work load eased a bit. When the neighbor lady would show off her new

time saving appliance, then the other neighbors would see the advantages of it and want one also. Burrell Smith has many many memories of bringing lights to Lewis County. The best memories are of the people he has met and worked with, and all the friendships he has made over the past years.

Scooters are becoming very popular in Lewis County. This inexpensive form of transportation can be found at Neil’s Scooters at 512 Clark Street in Canton. The business is owned by Don Neil. Ray Job is an employee. The colorful scooters are being purchased by people of all ages. He has sold a few to people in their

eighties. They are great for quick trips around town. One of the best things about a scooter is that they can go 90 to 100 miles on one gallon of gas. Many people use them around town for short trips instead of using their cars. They are fun to ride with a top speed of about 30 miles an hour. They are not allowed on interstates

Self Image And Teenage Girls Although it’s a little off topic from what my Wonder Mom topics usually cover, I’d like to write about an issue that really hits home for me, especially now that I am a mother. I recently read an article about a group of teenage girls who protested against teen magazines to keep them from altering their skin and their body shapes through photo editing software. They were successful- with one magazine even putting a statement at the front of their magazine saying that no models would be altered. The story of these girls truly inspired me and filled me with pride for the young women. These young girls want the world to know that they are beautiful- whether they are stick-thin or not. I am tall, and thanks to my gene pool, my metabolism has always been high enough that I’ve never had to battle my weight, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t felt what many of the young girls in our country are feeling. I’ve spent my entire life comparing myself to magazines, movie stars, and even other girls in school that were “prettier” and more popular than me. My middle and high school years seem a bit like a blur to me- all consisting of this person trying to find a place where she fit in. What girl can compare with a perfect complexion, blinding white teeth, flawless hair, and a body that looks as if it was created in a gym? No one. But the truth is, no one looks like that! Unfortunately, many young girls don’t realize this. Sure, nearly everyone knows what Photoshop is (a photo editing software), but it wasn’t until I read the story about the young girls that I realized that the magazines I loved as a teenager had girls in it that had been edited. True, it may appear like I was naïve, but honestly, most young women are. We expect to see “photoshopped” women in magazines such as Vogue, but the magazines for young girls? These magazines are supposed to be “real”they’re supposed to relate to the true-life issues that girls in America have. Yet, even though these young girls are no longer being photo-edited in the teen magazines, the war isn’t entirely over. Young girls everywhere are still watching movies, television, reading magazines geared for a more adult audience, etc. Every ad, every movie is telling our daughters that they aren’t beautiful enough, and worse, that their prod-

BARTLETT uct will make them more beautiful. What’s worse is that these insecurities built early in life often carry on into adulthood. Women ruin their teeth in an attempt to get a sparkling white smile. Women plunge needles into their skin to get rid of wrinkles. Thousands of dollars are spent on a daily basis so that women can undergo surgery to “be more beautiful.” Is it ever enough? As a teenager, the fact that beauty is being pressed upon people as a way to spend needless amounts of money didn’t make sense to me. All I saw was that I wasn’t beautiful, and I probably never would be. As an adult, I realized what was happening to our teenagers and was disturbed, but as a mother, I am outraged. I’m terrified for my little girl to grow up! My hopes are that I will be able to instill enough confidence into her that she will realize that she is beautiful just the way she is because our society isn’t going to help me there. Ladies and young ladies out there, the women that you believe to be beautiful are not what they appear to be. Nearly every single movie star has had some kind of “beauty-enhancing” operation. Nearly every single ad you see has been edited to create the look of flawlessness. The girls that are paper-thin usually have severe eating disorders and work themselves at the gym until sickness. Is that beauty? No. Beauty is how a person smiles when they are truly happy about something. Beauty is a kind heart reaching out to someone in need. Beauty is looking in the mirror and loving yourself for who you are- freckles, “knobby knees,” funny toes and all. Parents, it’s our job to instill that beauty is in all of our children, but that comes first from you believing it yourself. The only people who are ugly are the people who act that way- and no product in the world can wash that kind of ugly away.

BACKWARD GLANCES From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers 25 Years Ago The Press-News Journal August 9, 1987 A metal barn and the entire contents of hay were destroyed by fire Aug. 7. at the Richard Maples residence, three and a half miles northwest of Canton. Owner Richard Maples donned a fire helmet as he rode a farm tractor to move burning hay away form a wooden barn near the metal barn. Cause of the fire is believed to have been internal combustion, from the prolonged days of 90 degrees heat and high humidity, in which the heat kept building in the barn until it broke into flames. 45 Years Ago The Press-News Journal August 2, 1967 Canton High School Cheerleaders recently attended the Valley Cheerleaders School held at Missouri Valley College, Marshall. Cheerleaders are Mary Lynn Todd, Debbie Snell, Jan Bader and Patti Sykes. Mr. and Mrs. Okie Legg celebrated 50 years of marriage with a basket

dinner and open house in the Masonic Hall at Williamstown. Basil Hoff Fountain, 58, of LaBelle, died Sunday in Blessing Hospital where he has been a patient for 12 hours. He had suffered a heart attack Saturday. He was founder and president of the LaBelle Rodeo Association for 17 years. Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Munzlinger and family of Wiliamstown have been selected to represent Lewis county at the Missouri State Fair Farm Family Day Aug. 21. The Munzlingers operate a 720 acre farm. They maintain a herd of 70 Angus cattle. 50 Years Ago The Press-News Journal August 5, 1962 Prompt action of Henry Hendrickson and Gary Clark saved the life of Carl Simpson, 25, a deck hand on the tow boat Heron, Saturday night at Canton Lock and Dam No. 29. Simpson was handling the line at the head of the tow while lining up the tow with the guard wall when his foot became entangled in the line and was thrown into the river. Hendrickson and Clark immedi-

FROM OUR READERS To the adults - parents, teachers, administrators, board members: School is about to start. What’s on your mind? Are you thinking about bullying? It was such a hot topic last year. You talked a lot and tried to do a lot. Bullying was a big deal. Will it be any different this time around? You see, that’s the problem. All your discussions and committees and educational videos and policies and talks aren’t getting the results you’re looking for. It’s wonderful that you are working for change, but your efforts really aren’t getting you anywhere. I’m fourteen. I go to public school. You can consider me your insider. I’ve sat through the movies that will change the way we look at life, and I’ve heard the talking and laughing while they play. I’ve heard what the counselor has to say and I’ve been a part of the group discussions where we all talk about the bullying problem at our school. I’ve listened to kids spout

the right answers and share solutions, and I’ve seen the teasing, the exclusion, and the rude comments ten minutes later. You have taught our heads well, but it’s our hearts that need an education. What if instead of going to the meeting where they talk about us, our parents stayed home and talked with us? What if our teachers would call out another teacher’s kid for treating others like less? What if our parents taught us the value of others, and what it is to be a hero? What if instead of creating more rules and policies took make it look like they did something,our administrators took real action? Can you imagine if the adults in our community displayed for us the respect, equality, and honor they so wish we had? Talk with us, be an example for us, and expect more of us. Be the change, to help us make a heart change. Michaela Grubb Lewis County C-1

ately threw him a wooden safety black which he was able to use to keep from being crushed between the barge and the wall. Simpson’s foot and ankle were badly crushed and he was rushed to Blessing Hospital. The tow belongs to the Indian Towing co., of New Orleans and was heading down river. Firemen were called to the farm home of CharleLevengood Saturday morning, where the barn had been stuck by lightning. The fire had gained so much headway, however, that they were unable to save. There was a pony, 1,000 bales of had and some bales of straw destroyed by fire. 85 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal Aug. 17, 1927 Much credit is due to the Camp Fire Girls and their guardian, Miss Hazel Caldwell, for the work they have been doing. The old school site has been a weed patch so the girls obtained permission to clean it off and make a tennis court. They hired men and a grader to scrape the ground clean after they had cut all the weeds and Edwin Palmer set the posts for them. The court is now ready to use. The girls gave a cooked food sale sometime ago to help pay expenses and buy the set. LaGrange was the meeting place of the Lewis County Pomona Grange Saturday. Lewis County has long been recognized as one of the strong Grange counties in this state. The Lewis County Pomona Grange was organized about 1875. from among the local Granges which had already been organized at nearly every school house in the county. The organizers were Judge Patterson of Ten Mile, who became one of the first masters of the county Grange, and Reuben Stephenson, father of John, James, and S.P. Stephenson of Ten Mile. It flourished in its early years, then suffered a set back during the period when unscrupulous politicians well negh wrecked the general Grange organization by attempting to use it for political ends, but recovered from this blow to take on new vigor and is now benefitting from the widespread awakening to the value of the Grange movement.

The total membership in this county is about 1,500. The first Grange organized in the county is said to have been Durgen’s Creek Grange, now defunct, of which the late Joseph Waterman was one of the organizers. Oyster Prairie Grange No. 298 is the oldest of the subordinate Granges in the county and is also the oldest in the state. 95 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal August 17, 1917 Rev. G.C. Kell, a wellknown Baptist minister of this part of Missouri died in LaBelle Monday. Deceased was born in 1859 and was pastor of the Monticello Baptist Church for several years and a pastor of the Wyaconda Church near Canton for 18 years. Announcement that LaGrange College is to enter the ranks of junior colleges is made in the 51st annual catalog just issued. When school opens this fall in the courses of study offered will be in harmony with the new plan. 105 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal August 16, 1907 Hugh R. Wood, the oldest man in Lewis County, died at his home near Maywood Friday at the age of 97 years, 7 months. He came west with his father’s family in 1837. He entered 80 acres of his present farm in 1838 and continued to add to it until he had several hundred acres. The funeral was held at Liberty Church Sunday morning with interment at Dover.

One lucky Missouri State Fair attendee could win a Kindle Fire from MOST–Missouri’s 529 College Savings Plan according to State Treasurer Clint Zweifel. Missourians can enter to win at the MOST 529 booth in the Agricultural Building from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day of the fair. More than 700 people entered to win a Kindle and $25 Amazon gift card at the 2011 State Fair. Missourians 18 or older are eligible. As with all MOST 529 promotions, the giveaway is run at no cost to taxpayers. MOST 529 is the sixth

lowest cost direct-sold 529 Plan in the country according to Morningstar. It has more than 120,000 account owners and more than $1.6 billion in assets, each an all-time high for the plan. Accounts can be started with as little as $25, with earnings growing tax deferred. Additionally, taxfree withdrawals can be made for qualified higher-education expenses, contributions qualify for significant Missouri state income tax deductions and a wide range of lowcost investment options are available.

Traffic Will Increase as School Starts Be on the lookout for those big yellow school buses as classes begin all across the state in midAugust. Drivers are also urged to be ready for increased student and parent traffic. Many schools are located on or near state roads. The Missouri Coalition for Roadway safety offers some “back to school” safe driving reminders to promote driving and pedestrian safety: For Drivers, expect heavy traffic around schools, with cars dropping off students in the morning and picking them up in the afternoon. Expect students walking and riding bicycles to and from schools or waiting at school bus stops. Notice “School Bus Stop Ahead” signs and be prepared to slow down or stop. Stop when a bus has its red warning lights flashing and stop sign extended. Slow down where speed limits are reduced at a

school, including where flashing lights are installed. For Students, parents should make sure students know and follow traffic safety rules.Use sidewalks where available. If you must walk in the street, walk single file facing traffic and stay close to the edge of the road. Cross streets only at intersections. Assume drivers cannot see you. Avoid using cell phones, ear buds and hand-held games. When getting off a school bus, look both ways before walking in front of the bus into the street in case an approaching car does not stop. In bad weather, with wet or slick pavement, expect cars to take a longer distance to stop. At night, make yourself visible. Wear light colors and reflective strips and use a flashlight. For more information on pedestrian and bus safety, go to saveMOlives. com.

Captain James E. Wilt, commanding officer of Troop B, Macon, announces upcoming plans for Troop B officers to participate in Operation C.A.R.E. and 20-Mile Trooper enforcement programs over the 2012 Labor Day weekend. The Missouri State Highway Patrol will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) during the long holiday weekend. This means every available officer will be on the road enforcing traffic laws and assisting motorists. The counting period for the Labor Day weekend will be from 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 31, to 11:59 p.m. Monday, Sept. 3, 2012.

Additionally, Troop B officers will be conducting a 20-Mile Trooper project on U.S. Highways 24, 36, and 63 on Aug. 31, 2012, and Sept. 3, 2012. During this enforcement program, troopers will be assigned to 20-mile intervals in an effort to step up traffic enforcement with a goal of reducing traffic crashes over the holiday weekend. “The Labor Day weekend is the last long holiday weekend of the summer and many people will be traveling on Missouri roadways,” stated Captain Wilt. “I would like to urge all motorists to make sure safe driving is a part of your plans. Make sure everyone is wearing a seat belt, and never drink and drive.”

Country Living

Land of Legacy An editorial column from the Missouri Farm Bureau Federation At the turn of the 20th century, 38 percent of the labor force was farmers. Today, only 2 percent still call farming their own, yet they feed the world with less land, less water, and a sense of stewardship that rivals that of a century ago. Some of today’s farmers come from a long line of farming; you might say it’s in their blood. For more than 100 years, their family has farmed the same land, and in Missouri there are 8,120 farms specially recognized for this tradition. The University of Missouri Extension shepherds a program that tracks and honors those well-worn family farms. The Extension and the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources partnered with Missouri Farm Bureau (MFB) to sponsor a new book, “Missouri’s Century Farms: Preserving Our Agricultural Heritage” that commemorates the 35th anniversary of the Century Farm program. The book was recently released at the Missouri State Fair. C Y


Nearly three years in the making, the book showcases almost 1,000 Missouri farms that have been farmed by the same family for at least 100 years. (A listing of all Century Farms is also included.) Highlighting the history of the Century Farm program, the 400-page book includes the history of Missouri agriculture as well as personal recollections of individuals whose families have successfully transferred their passion for farming to the next generation. There’s something to be said, and celebrated, about longevity. It is no small feat to instill the love of what you do into your children, and as a result they follow in your occupational footsteps. Many farm kids leave the farm and become doctors, lawyers, businessmen and women and contribute to society with the work ethic they learned on the farm—one that knows how to weather good times and tough times. Those who stay on the farm continue the tradition. Missouri Farm Bureau is honored to be a part of the effort to preserve the heritage of Missouri agriculture. For nearly two centuries, agriculture has been a strong foundation for Missouri. In the book, histories

of the Century Farms bring that foundation to life. Recollections of individuals like Millie Hurst, mother of MFB President Blake Hurst, provide vivid detail of what it was like to grow up on a family farm in the early 20th century. Gov. Jay Nixon also contributed to the book and recognized the farming traditions passed down from generation to generation and the families who have attained this special recognition. “Throughout our state’s history, Missouri’s farm families have passed down their legacy of dedication, perseverance and innovation to future generations,” Nixon wrote. “Their tenacity through good times and tough times alike is a true testament to the great men and women of our Century Farms, who are pillars of Missouri’s deeply rooted agriculture tradition.” The book is published by Acclaim Press in Sikeston, Mo. To order, visit Rebecca French Smith, of Columbia, Mo., is a multimedia specialist for the Missouri Farm Bureau, the state’s largest farm organization. C Y
