crash was discovered west of 314th Avenue, near Sunflower Road, approximately 2.5 miles southwest of Canton, Mo. Two occupants were discovered in the wreckage and were pronounced deceased at 9:20 p.m. by Lewis County Coroner Larry Arnold. After formal notification to family members, the two men were identified as

John R. Johnson, 74, of Carbondale, Ill., and Carl. S. Maiden, 47, DuQuoin, Ill. The Sheriff’s Department reports that according to family members the pair was flying to Iowa to an antique air show and had left from an airport near Carbondale, Ill. The plane was a 1956 Piper- 23-150 and is also referred to as a Piper Apache. Authorities were investigat-

ing the incident and were still on scene Friday morning, Aug. 31. The investigation is expected to take several months, although a preliminary report could be issued within a week or two. NTSB officials from the Chicago office were handling the investigation. Story continued on page 2A

Ellison Reunion September 9 at Noon Lions Hall LaGrange, MO

Continued from page 1A Sheriff David Parrish was at the crash scene again on Friday morning, Aug. 31. He said members of his department and the Missouri State Highway Patrol were staying on the scene of the crash site and securing the area until the officials from the NTSB had completed their investigation at the scene. Also assisting at the scene were the Canton Police and Fire Departments and the Lewis County Ambulance. Sheriff Parrish said “A farmer in the area heard a plane at about 5:45 p.m. and recalled hearing the plane and hearing the sound of a soda can crunch. The man looked to the direction he thought it came from, but did not see smoke and did not think anything more about it.” “The people who actually found the plane were looking for deer,” Parrish added. Lonnie and Laura Meyer, who live just west of Highway 61 in rural LaGrange, about two miles from the crash site, said their children were playing outside and came in and said they saw a plane crash. The children ages five and eight told their mother they saw a plane fly over their house real low and thought it had crashed. Mrs. Meyer said she didn’t hear anything or see anything and thought the children were mis-

taken and had just seen a small plane flying low to the ground. The Meyer’s were contacted by officials who took their report. The Meyer’s believe the children saw the plane after 6 p.m. Anyone with information or who may have witnessed the plane flying before it crashed are urged to contact the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff David Parrish said this was the third plane crash in Lewis County in the twelve years he has been sheriff. Steven Lee Walker, 71, of Newark, Mo., was the pilot and sole occupant of a single-engine plane that crashed and burned Nov. 1, 2007, shortly after taking off from the Sharpe Farms Airport. Sam E. Sparks, 40, of Casselberry, Fla., formerly of Lewis County, and his son, Justin Sparks, age 11, of Winter Springs, Fla., were killed in a plane crash two miles from the Taylor airport on May 26, 2000. The plane went down in a soybean field in severe weather conditions. The father and son were visiting family in the area. Obituaries for Johnson and Maiden were not available at press time. Lewis County Coroner Larry Arnold said the bodies of the victims were released to funeral homes in Carbondale and DuQuoin, Ill.

Johnnie and Pam Schultz and family of Ewing were among the 108 families honored during the Missouri State Fair’s Farm Family Day, Aug. 13. The Schultzs were selected as the Lewis Missouri State Fair Farm Family by the Lewis County extension council and local Farm Bureau. The family includes daughters Stephanie, Jodie, and Julie. Each year the fair sets aside a day to recognize farm families from across the state who are active in their community, involved in agricultural activities and who participate in local outreach and extension educational programs such as 4-H and FFA. The annual event was sponsored by Missouri Farm Bureau, Missouri Department of Agriculture, Missouri State Fair, University of Missouri Extension and the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.

NECAC offers modular home program A new opportunity offered by the North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) allows people to buy energy-efficient and fully-equipped modular homes. NECAC is the first not-for-profit agency in Missouri to participate in the Next Step Network’s home-ownership program. NECAC is a 12-county area not-for-profit social service, community health and public housing Community Action Agency. NECAC contracts with federal, state and local governments, private businesses and other not-for profit organizations to operate and administer self-sufficiency service programs for the low-income, elderly, youth, disabled and disadvantaged population. The agency’s Central Administration Offices are located in Bowling Green, with NECAC Service Centers operated in each county. “This is just another tool for home-owner-

ship,� said NECAC Deputy Director for Housing Developments Carla Potts. “It’s another opportunity for people to realize the dream of owning a home.� Potts said the program can help enliven many communities by offering quality homes at an affordable price. “Not everyone can build a traditional house,� she said. “But there are other options, and this is one of them. It’s one of the best programs I’ve seen.� NECAC will do estimates for a lot, foundation and other costs for qualified applicants, who will then choose from one of four floor plans. Applicants must meet credit guidelines of lenders, who will make the purchase loans. Once an agreement is signed, the home will be ordered. NECAC will oversee the set up and do finish work. Contractors will take care of heating and cooling, electrical and plumbing installation.

The energy-efficient homes range in size from 960 square feet to 1,580 square feet, and come with major appliances furnished. There are three three-bedroom, two bathroom models and one four-bedroom, twobathroom models from which to choose. The price range is estimated at $40,000 to $55,000. Next Step is based in Louisville, Ky., and is dedicated to putting sustainable home-ownership

within reach of everyone while making sure houses are built to quality standards and are put on a permanent foundation. More about Next Step is available by logging on to www.nextstephomes. org.

Lewis County Quail Focus Area Tour Conducted Approximately thirty people attended a quail focus area tour sponsored by the 10 Rivers Pheasants Forever Chapter last month in Monticello. Attendees learned about the methods used to create the nesting, brood rearing and low woody escape cover needed by quail. Missouri Department of Conservation biologists led the field tour, which visited the Karen Veatch and Emery Geisendorfer properties. The 10 Rivers Pheasants Forever Chapter, in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Conservation, established a quail focus area in a geography, which generally lies between Monticello and Williamstown. These special 10,000 – 30,000 acre areas have been designated in only a few locations around the state. The goal of these areas is to demonstrate how quail numbers can be sustained and increased by the large scale implementation of quail management practices by landowners. Lewis County landowners interested in managing for quail and pheasant on their property can contact: Robert Power, President, 10 Rivers Pheasants Forever, at 217-430-7959 or John Pinkowski, Missouri Department of Conservation, at 660-397-2223 ext. 117.

10 Rivers Pheasants Forever Chapter sponsored a quail focus area tour last month. About 30 people were in attendance, and learned about methods needed to create a habitat for quail.

Canton Levee Walk to have Ribbon Cutting The Canton Levee Walk will officially open with a ribbon cutting September 29 at 11 a.m. at Front and Lewis Streets in Canton. The $155,000 project was a joint venture of a Missouri Department of Transportation grant and the Canton Tourism Commission. No general reve-

nue funds of the city were used for the project. The levee walk stretches approximately 2,004 feet between two railroad floodgates that overlook the Mississippi River. There are park benches, trash receptacles, and an information kiosk on the concrete path.

An observation tower on one of the existing concrete structures on the levee is in the planning. “It is good to see how many people are using the walk and enjoying the beautiful river sites,” said Jim Upchurch, Co-chairman of the Tourism Commission.

EDITORIAL ADVENTURES OF WONDER MOM As I’ve been going through the process of cleaning out my house and organizing it, I discovered three unused cans of baby formula in one of my kitchen cabinets. Under normal circumstances, I would usually try to donate them, but since they had been stuck away in a cabinet I don’t often look in, I’d forgotten they were even there- thus, leading to the formula expiring. Baby formula cans are large, metal, and also come with a lid. Instantly, I realized that I could repurpose this little tin cans and turn them into something else that I could not only organize with, but also use to decorate my home. I tested my process out on two cans before choosing to do a tutorial and I did this tutorial using clear tape instead of the normal crafting choice of Mod Podge. The craft can be done either way, and the Mod Podge would probably make it look a bit fancier, but I’m a huge fan of crafts that are cute but also easy and quick. For me, using the clear tape was faster than waiting for the glue to dry and easier than breaking out the paintbrush to brush the glue


BARTLETT onto the can. There is a ‘gap’ where I over-lapped the cardstock and then taped it to stay in place. This ‘gap’ can be covered up with scrapbook embellishments or can simply be placed so that the gap doesn’t show. (Which is what I did) So, here is what you need: - Scrapbook paper (Takes almost an entire 12x12 in. sheet of cardstock to cover one can) - Mod Podge or clear tape - Scissors - Formula can -Embellishments (Optional) Step One: Empty out Formula Can, wash WELL, dry well. Step Two: Pick out the scrapbook paper that you would like to use. Since Fall is coming quickly, and I’m basically obsessed with fall-related colors, I chose 3 sheets from my Seasonal cardstock album from Hobby Lobby.

This photo of downtown LaGrange was supplied by Mark Tanner. The landscape has changed dramatically over the last century. This view is looking north from about where the Mineral Well Park is located.


BACKWARD GLANCES From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers 25 Years Ago The Press-News Journal Sept. 3, 1987

Step Three: Wrap paper around the can.

Step Four: Smooth out the paper and tape down This will make the scrapbook paper not stay even all the way around the can. This is ok, we’re going to layer over it.

Canton Postmaster Howard Wagner has retired after 31 years of service. He was appointed postmaster by President Lyndon B. Johnson on Oct. 4, 1968 and has served longer in that position than any other person since the Canton Post Office was established in 1847. LaBelle classes of 1935, 36, 37 and 38 held a reunion at the Golden Bell in LaBelle on Aug.16. Several boy scouts from LaGrange Troop 173 had the opportunity to experience an unforgettable hiking trek, beautiful nature scenery and using their outdoor skill when they attended Philmont Boy Scout Ranch in Cimarron, N.M. Attending were Stacey Branham, Richard Robertson Scout Master, Tim Robertson and Eric Vannaken. 45 Years Ago The Press-News Journal Sept. 7, 1967

Step Five: Cut off excess paper. Step Six: Layer the leftover scrapbook paper on top of the gap. Step Seven: Repeat steps 3-4.

Step Eight: Cut off all excess paper. I tilted my scissors a bit which helped me avoid hitting the can.

The LaBelle Club won the best appearing, and the Ewing club had the most horses in the grand entry of the Canton Trail Riders horse show Sept. 3. The LaGrange school opened with a total of 530 students. The C-1 School at Ewing opened with an enrollment of 412. There are three new teachers on the high school faculty. Robert Scott of Williamstown will teach math, Virgil Zuspann of Lewistown will teach history, and Jan Solter of LaGrange, science. 50 Years Ago The Press-News Journal August 25, 1962

The Lewistown Sale was delayed several hours, Tuesday, when between

1500 and 2000 persons, many said to be person of the NFO, congregated at the sale barn. The Missouri State Highway Patrol, which sent ten troopers to the scene at the request of local authorities, said the sale was delayed because demonstrators were sitting in the aisles the cattle were to be led down. The sale resumed later. No trouble, other than the aisle sitting protestors, occurred authorities indicated. The patrol said is had been asked to help to guarantee order at the request of Sheriff Wilbur Wallace and Prosecuting Attorney Earl Veatch. 75 Years Ago The Press-News Journal Sept. 9, 1937 Since the ball diamond west of the swimming beach has been lighted, night games of softball among the various teams has become popular with players and spectators alike. The grounds are well lighted and fast play is possible. Officials of the Western Telephone Corporation have been here recently confirming with the people of Canton to secure sentiment on the building of a new common battery system to replace the magneto one now in operation. The change will entail the necessity of charging a slightly higher rate due to the large amount of money to be spent on the system. F. L. Winters of Gregory’s Landing has fitted up a bus and is bringing rural pupils to Canton high school. Don Stone has also placed an order for a bus and will bring rural pupils to school. The Canton Board of Education has bought three lots, corner of Washington and Third, from the Monroe estate for $375. The property will be held by the board pending development of a plan to secure

more playground room for the school children. The Lewis County Journal Aug. 27, 1927 Captain Felix Scott, one of Missouri’s oldest citizens, passed away at his home in Rutledge Friday, and the remains were laid to rest in Deer Ridge Cemetery. He was born in Kentucky about 90 years ago, married there in 1849 and came to Missouri. He was a captain in the Union Army and buried in his captain’s uniform and the casket was covered with the U.S. Flag he used during the Civil War. A number of our citizens went to Canton Labor Day to witness the starting of the marathon swim. Twenty-six made the start, each had a boat following with a life saver. Eleven of the 22 men and four women reached Quincy. 95 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal August 27, 1917 The Monticello school starts off with a rush Monday morning. Attendance as large as usual and more pupils to come. A wave of sorrow is over our vicinity the past few days as our neighbor and friend, Prof. Roy Keller, has been called to the services of Uncle Sam. We regret to have Roy leave us as we are losing one of our best young men. Overton. It is certainly a deplorable fact that one denomination reports a falling off of 400 Sunday School scholars in the past two years. Some people claim it is caused from the automobile (which should be trained to go to Sunday school and Church). Can someone solve this problem? Hazel Grove.

105 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal Sept. 13, 1907 Herman Heymeyer, 86, an old and highly respected citizen of LaGrange, died at his home on Sept. 7. Joe Roberts returned Friday from Kansas City where he has been attending barber school, and has finished the course. On Monday, he bought out R.W. Morton and is now located at Roy’s old stand. Early Monday morning the electrician at the light plant in Canton discovered the depot at that place to be on fire. He immediately sounded the alarm. This is the third time that the deport has been on fire. From a business standpoint, it would have been well for it to have been totally destroyed. Canton has needed a new depot for sometime and we understand the commercial Club of the city has taken the matter up and will try and induce the Railroad Company to put up a new station. 125 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal Sept. 9, 1887 William Legg, living with his son, George Legg, on the Col. Moore farm north of this place, is in the 96 year of his age, and at present is very low with flux. Prof. J. T. Muir left LaGrange last week going to Kirksville to reside, having been elected to the chair of models and methods in the Kirksville Normal. He is to receive a salary of $1,200 per year. Miss Renton, a graduate of New England conservatory of Music of Boston, has been secured to take the place of Mrs. Muir in the music department of the LaGrange College.

COMMUNITY Free Movie Shown At Lewis Street Playhouse

Local Businesses and Organizations Showcased During C-SC’s “Sample Canton”

Photo by Rita Cox

C.J. Hunt from Hunt Thompson Media and John Wood of US Wellness Meats talk before the screening of Hunt’s movie, In Search of the Perfect Human Diet, shown at the Lewis Street Playhouse on Aug. 29.

BY RITA COX Reporter

C.J. Hunt says he was like any other person, liked different foods and ate what he wanted when a near fatal heart attack changed his view about his diet. The incident that happened when Hunt was only 21, the close call started him on a 30 year mission to find a cure for heart disease. The movie, In Search of the Perfect Human Diet, was a result of that mission. A free screening of the movie was presented

at the Lewis Street Playhouse on August 29. U.S. Wellness Meats provided samples of their products for the audience to enjoy and learn about. Hunt says he traveled around the world to find an explanation for the epidemic of overweight, obesity and diet related diseases and in the film he discovers the benefits of a healthy diet. According to the website,, the movie explores modern science, previous historical findings, native populations and first time revelations

from the emerging field of human dietary evolution. More information about Mr. Hunt and the movie can also be found on the perfect human diet webstie. Hunt spoke to the crowd and answered many questions from the audience after the movie. US Wellness Meats is a producer-owned grass-fed meat company practicing organic principles. No hormones are used in their products, there are no antibiotics fed and no herbicides or pesticides sprayed on the pastures where the

meat is raised. US Wellness Meats also offers a wide variety of meats including beef, lamb, bison, rabbit, poultry and other items. More information about US Wellness Meats may be found at the website ww.uswellnessmeats. com Mr. Hunt said that this was one of the first locations that the movie had been shown and he was happy to be in Canton and talk to the audience about how a diet change and eating correctly can change lives.

COMMUNITY NEWS Motorists Can Expect Poverty Awareness Day Brief Delays on Rural to focus upon needs of disadvantaged Bridges

Weather permitting, Sept. 10, MoDOT crews will begin sealing 92 bridge decks in various locations throughout 17 counties in northeast Missouri. MoDOT will have three sealing crews working from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for about three days or until all the bridge decks are completed. While crews are working, the rural blacktop bridges will be closed to traffic for 10 to 15 minute intervals. Minor delays should be expected and alternate routes are recommended. Please use extra caution when traveling through the work zone. MoDOT’s Northeast District Bridge Sealing Team was recognized in 2011 for their efforts with Silver Performance Excellence Award for outstanding teamwork by the AASHTO Standing Committee on Performance Management. Those traveling and commuting public are encouraged to check the online map at daily for new work zones. MoDOT also offers e-update messages sent directly to your email when roadwork is scheduled. For more information contact MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK MoDOT (275-6636) or go online at northeast.

Poverty often goes unnoticed in rural areas, but it’s just as pervasive as in big cities. The North East Community Action Corporation hopes to bring greater attention to the needs of the disadvantaged at its first Poverty Awareness Day covering 12 counties. The event, co-sponsored by Pike County People First and the Pike County Agency for Developmental Disabilities, is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Bowling Green Town Center next to Walmart. NECAC is a 12-county area not-for-profit social service, community health and public housing Community Action Agency. NECAC contracts with federal, state and local governments, private businesses and other not-for profit organizations to operate and administer self-sufficiency service programs for the low-income, elderly, youth, disabled and disadvantaged population. The agency’s Central Administration Offices are located in Bowling Green, with NECAC Service Centers operated in each county. Up to 50 booths will be set up by service providers, businesses and organizations. Each will feature a cardboard box to demonstrate the plight of the homeless and offer statistics about the growing poverty rate. The government’s latest poverty statistics were released earlier this year. At least one of every 10 people

Workshop schedule: Sept. 11-Joplin Regional Stockyards, 6 p.m. Sept. 13-Brent Martin’s farm in Anutt, 3:30 p.m. Sept. 18-MU Thompson Research Center Field Day near Spickard, 9 a.m. Sept. 20-MU Beef Research and Teaching Farm in Columbia, 6 p.m. Sept. 25-MU Forage Systems Research Center Field Day near Linneus, 9 a.m. Sept. 27-Triple V Farms in Perryville, 6 p.m.

Trespassing or Hunting


Incorporating a specific treatment process called ammoniation, producers can treat corn stover at a cost of approximately $25 per ton of forage. The added nutritional value makes it an economical choice in a season filled with climatic and economic challenges. To help walk producers through the process, the university, alongside the state’s corn and cattle organizations, are offering free workshops in select regions. “The livestock industry is our number one customer,” said Gary Wheeler, vice president of operations and grower services for Missouri Corn. “Through these free forage demonstrations, we are working to help connect corn growers with cattlemen for the good of all parties involved.”


Eichor Farms

With 2012 bringing both the warmest and driest April through July stretch in 118 years, pastures, crops and even established trees are suffering from the drought. In response to the reduction in forages, some cow-calf operators across Missouri are considering significantly reducing or liquidating their herds. For those livestock farmers struggling to find feed sources, Justin Sexten, MU beef nutritionist, the Missouri Corn Merchandising Council and the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association are working together to explore alternative forages. The coalition will be hosting workshops around the state to demonstrate how to improve digestibility of corn stover and lower-quality hay by 15 percent while doubling the feeds’ protein content.

in the region falls below the federal benchmark for being poor. In Lewis County, 16.4 percent of people live in poverty. The government says poverty across the nation has reached its highest level in almost 20 years. Included in Poverty Awareness Day on Sept. 29 will be a “rally walk,” in which participants from each booth will take turns carrying a banner from the start of the event to its finish. Donations of food also will be accepted, with all of it going to area pantries. NECAC has held poverty awareness events at individual locations in the past, but this will be the first large-scale event. For more information about the event or the agencies involved, call Gordy at (573) 324-2207) or visit the NECAC Pike County Service Center at 805 Business Highway 61 North in Bowling Green.

With Deep Appreciation We would like to thank everyone for all the cards, food, monetary donations, and prayers since my diagnosis in May. A very special thank you to our families, the committee that organized Kickin Cancer With Tina Benefit, Sparks Auction, David Allen Auction, Washburn Auction, Bounce Unlimited, all the men and women who prepared the wonderful meal, the local churches, businesses, and individuals that donated their time, money, and items, and to Bob Huebotter and the Missouri Breaks band for donating their talent to cap off a wonderful day. Thank you also to a few very special kids in our community that sang, made items to raise money or help out Saturday. We’ve always loved living and working in our community and we know how much our community loves us back. Lewis County is the greatest place in the world to live. I’m going to quote David Allen “The wealth of a person is not determined by the friends around them.” My family is very rich in friendship. Thank you and God Bless you all!!! Colby, Tina, Hunter, Hannah, and Holden Lay
