Macon, MO BLOOD DRIVE SURPASSES GOAL La Plata was awesome at the Red Cross drive September 17, at the Christian Church. The goal was 30 units, and 44 people donated. All were good units. Five to eight more people came, but the Red Cross ran out of supplies, and couldn’t draw any more blood. The Red Cross and Atalpal ll, who sponsored the drive, thanks to everyone who gave, and those who tried. One-hundred thirtytwo people will be helped through these donations. Those helping from Atalpal ll, at the front desk, in the canteen, or bringing food, were Lenora Grear, Jean Elliott, Mary Plumlee, Jerry Prather, Sharron Burns, Paula Thompson, Maurine Crawford, Shirley Smith, and Becky Mohan. Gary Smith and Marvin Seidt, from the Lions Club, helped unload and load. The next drive will be held December 3, 2012 sponsored by the La Plata Student Council.

Locals Perform Legendary Plays Driving Miss Daisy And Honky Tonk Angels To Begin At Maples Reperatory Theatre

TWO SEPARATE ACCIDENTS REQUIRE LIFE FLIGHT At approximately 5:30 p.m. on Friday evening a one vehicle accident occurred at Elmer Street at Highway 149 in Ethel, Missouri when a 1993 Geo Tracker driven by Joseph Weber, age 27 of La Plata lost control on a curve, overcorrected, traveled off the roadway and overturned coming to rest in the ditch. Weber was ejected and flown by Air Evac to the University Hospital in Columbia with serious injuries. Also Saturday, September 22nd at approximately 11:00 p.m. a one vehicle accident occurred 4 miles east of South Gifford on Highway 156 when a 1998 Chevrolet S10, driven by Marvin Vroom, age 59 of Elmer, Missouri traveled off the north side of the roadway, struck a stop sign and an embankment. The truck overturned and came to rest in the roadway. Vroom was flown to University Hospital in Columbia by Life Flight with serious injuries. The MSHP was assisted by the Macon County Ambulance, Macon County Rescue Squad and the La Plata Fire Department.

Regional audiences look forward to the fall shows presented by the Maples Repertory Theatre company in Macon, Missouri. Tucked in amongst area football games and craft festivals the Maples Rep has carved out a place for quality theatre and good oldfashioned entertainment. The fall season will open with the award-winning Driving Miss Daisy on October 12 and an audience favorite The Honky Tonk Angels will be added a week later on October 19. Todd Davison, Artistic Director for the Maples Rep says, “We are really pleased to be able to add a show to our fall season. Driving Miss Daisy is just one of the best plays to be written in the last

25 years or so and Ted Swindley who created Always Patsy Cline and now The Honky Tonk Angels knows just how to give us musical stage reviews that make us happy.” Davison adds, “Also we have been so fortunate to contract outstanding casts for these productions. We have Maples veterans like Sally Eaton playing Miss Daisy and Cheyenne Nelson as one of the Angels and Brandon McShaffrey one of our favorite directors will be back to direct The Honky Tonk Angels. We are really excited about the way the fall season is coming together.” Driving Miss Daisy is a memorable story about a 72-year-old Jewish widow,

who in 1948, very reluctantly accepts the services of Hoke, her long-suffering driver. Over the years their relationship grows strong as they each realize they each need the other. The Honky Tonk Angels is a hilarious story about three good ole gals who follow their dreams to Nashville. Songs include “Stand By Your Man,” “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “9 to 5,” “I Will Always Love You,” and “Harper Valley PTA.” Whether you are a country music fan or just like to hear good songs with a story, you will fall in love with these “Honky Tonk Angels.” The Honky Tonk Angels and Driving Miss Daisy comprise a fast fall repertory sea-

son for the Maples. Driving Miss Daisy closes October 28 and The Honky Tonk Angels closes November 4. In between and after the Maples Rep main stage productions are the standard crowd pleasers: Afterglows, homemade desserts at Intermission, and Sunday lunch. The Afterglows are free and the desserts and Sunday meals are family-priced. For more information and to order tickets call the Maples Box Office at 660-3852924, order online at www. maplesrep.com, or go by the theatre located on corner of Rubey and Vine in downtown Macon, Missouri. Current fall-season box office hours are Tues.-Thurs. 10-2.

THREE TRAVEL TO COLUMBIA FOR DISTRICT CHOIR This past Saturday three LHS choir students traveled to Hickman High School in order to audition for the Northeast Missouri All-District Choir. Students were required to perform a prepared solo, as well as to identify key signatures and sight read two vocal selections. Gage Lynch, freshman at La Plata R-II, was selected to represent the school as a member of the performing ensemble. Andrew Murphy, music director for the La Plata school

district, says “the event was a positive learning experience for all who participated, myself included.” Lynch will now return to Columbia on November 3rd for a day of rehearsals and a 5 pm performance at Hickman High School. The concerts are open to the public, and all are encouraged to attend. Pictured above are this year’s participants; (L-R) Jessica Davison, Gage Lynch, and Mona Draken.

COMMENTARY COMMENT

FISHING LINES

Blonde But Blunt BY BECKY JEFFCOAT EDITOR/PUBLISHER lpnews@marktwain.net

Wow, what a weekend. The weather has turned from cold to colder. If you are sitting in a certain spot, the sun will keep you toasty, but if the clouds move the cold is almost too much. I was so excited for the weekend to get here and to take a two day vacation over at Memphis, where I planned to participate in the Council of the Oaks annual ride and camping weekend. However, on Friday evening after we arrived in Memphis, I guess a flu bug caught me and I became a tad ill overnight and was unable to ride on Saturday. But, I did sit by the campfire and catch up with my friends Paul and Kathy and made a couple new friends, Angela and Pam. Its great to be able to just sit back and smile while making new friends and getting in touch with friends you haven’t seen for awhile. Over 42 recreational vehicles from Iowa, Indiana and Missouri took out on the ride Saturday and a couple stragglers added in later with over 100 people gathering to share the annual weekend with Grizz and his family. The group rode for over 4 hours and finally showed back up at camp for a great fire that we had been stoking all day, just to keep us warm as the breeze was way too chilly, but the weather was wonderful. A carryin meal is always enjoyed by everyone and this year the “camp hash� was extremely awesome. I can’t tell ya what’s in it, it’s a secret. LOL On Sunday it was a new day and I felt great. Rode a while with my sweetheart on the ATV and enjoyed the wildlife and fresh air finding deer tracks, fox tracks, turkey feathers and hawk feathers. And as always before the ride, I was the donut cinnamon/ sugar shaker girl for my buddy Grizz, who makes his homemade biscuits every year. This year, Grizz decided we would make a huge quantity and came out with a clear plastic industrial size trash bag, telling me to fill it up with cinnamon and sugar. LOL, what a funny guy. But, the look on my face, I’m sure “priceless� and he laughed and said, just kidding and handed me a Ziploc baggie. LOL, haha Grizz. I didn’t believe you

JEFFCOAT anyway. We had a new addition to breakfast this year, bacon deep fried in funnel cake batter and then we dipped it in syrup. It was great. You should try it sometime. After the weekend was over we headed home to unpack and unwind and as usual, hit the bed early! But, I wanted to let you know, that I DID NOT crash, I DID NOT break any bones, I DID NOT have a flat, but I DID have a great time, Thanks Grizz! On the other side of our world here at the paper, Randy was busy over the weekend bouncing from town to town with events from Atlanta to La Plata to Gifford and he did an excellent job hitting it all. This week not much is going on, but keep your eyes open for the end of the year BB/SB stats. Junior High BB will be starting up soon and the Truman Homecoming will be in October. The Young Farmer’s Tractor Pull will be October 6th and I will find myself coming and going that day as we are also having Sara’s Baby Shower that afternoon. Time is going fast for her last trimester and Baby Lee will be here soon. I’m so excited. The flu has been hitting us hard, as Quinci Jo has it and is on some breathing treatments and her mom felt the effects for a couple days, but finally shook it before handing it down to me I guess. But all is well and hopefully everyone will be feeling better before the weather gets cold for good. I did pick some green tomatoes from my dads garden on Sunday, (he wasn‘t home, so don‘t tell him, hehe) wanted to get them before the cold did. Plan on frying those up this week sometime, if time allows. Won’t be as good as my mama’s but, nothing ever is. Keep It Kool, Bec

Lines are being checked as this little one and her father are catching a mess of fish during the ride at Council of the Oaks.

THE SHEPHERD CALLS

FAITH

Pastor’s Corner

Contrary Winds

Change must be a bad word. I say that because very few of us like change. We hang on to what we have now or what we had in the past to try to keep change from happening. But some of us want to know Jesus more. We want a deeper relationship than what we have right now. We cannot have it both ways. We cannot hang on so tight to what we have that we don’t let go and also know Jesus better. By knowing Jesus we are not the same people we were before we knew him. Not if we really know him and not just know about him. There is a difference. It’s like the difference between knowing about ice cream and actually experiencing ice cream as we eat some of it. When we eat some of the ice cream, we want more. We want to eat all of it in our bowl. And then we want more ice cream. When we really know Jesus, when we experience Jesus in our lives, we want to know more of Jesus. When we know Jesus, we want to be like him. So we change. Jesus said in the Gospel of Mark, “All who want

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

THOMAS to come after me must say no to themselves, take up their cross and follow me. All who want to save their lives will lose them. But all who lose their loves because of me and because of the good news will save them.� We cannot follow Jesus and not be changed. By following him, our outlook on life will change. Our view of other people will change. Our view on money will change. Our desires will change, They will no longer be the desires of the world but will be the desires of God.

The disciples were trying to cross the Sea of Galilee but making no progress because a storm had developed. Writing about this trauma, Matthew says the wind was contrary. “The boat was in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves for the wind was contrary.� (Matthew 14:24) The word contrary means opposing, opposite, uncooperative, even defiant. I like football. The goal of each team is to carry the ball across a line 100 yards away. Sounds simple enough, except there is a group on the other end of the field whose goal is to make sure you can’t carry the ball across their line. One might say the opposing team is contrary. Ideally, such athletic contests teach us about life. Some contrary force meets almost every human effort. Few of us remember learning to walk, but that elementary achievement was opposed by an extraordinary power— gravity. Perhaps you can remember learning to write. Do you recall how uncooperative your hand was? Indeed, the hand is still uncooperative for many. Considering the contrary character of life, it is easy to grow weary and lazy. Why should we try? Everything takes so much effort. Why not just

let “stuff� happen? Some ask, “Why does God make life so hard? Why didn’t He make us like little robots so everyone had to do what they were programmed to do?� Even God’s wishes for us, i.e. spiritual plans, seem to contrive contrary winds. Jesus said God’s way is narrow and difficult to follow. Perhaps the account in Matthew’s gospel can help us. The disciples were following Jesus’ instructions to meet Him on the other side of the sea. One would think if the Lord told you to do something, He would remove the obstacles. Yet, God allowed a storm to develop as the disciples obeyed. Let us note two truths. First, calm seas do not make good sailors. Character is shaped by facing difficulties. Peter Marshall noted, “When we long for life without difficulties, we should remember great oaks are developed by contrary winds.� The second truth we note about the disciples’ experience on the sea is when they needed Him, Jesus appeared. At first, they could not believe it; but He came to their rescue. When the winds of life become contrary, remember Jesus said, “Lo, I am with you always.� (Matthew 28:20)

On a call by the chair for ayes and nays there were 4 ayes and 0 nays. The motion carried. Financial Report: Administrator Brown informed the Board of Aldermen the city dump truck number three was currently unusable due to

a mechanical breakdown. He goes on to remark that the repairs would cost approximately $3,000.00. Old Business: Administrator Brown provided an update on the generator installation. He commented that the generators and the commercial grid are not on the same phase (cycle). Mr. Brown explained this condition is easily corrected, but will require a brief city-wide power outage. City hall will be sending letters to all residents and commercial customers with additional details. Administrator Brown informed the Board of Aldermen that Adair County Public Water District had raised their water rates by nine percent. He noted that the city has not adjusted their water rates to compensate for the increase. After discussion Alderman Adams made a motion and seconded by Alderman Perry to increase the minimum water rate from $13.67 to $16.67 to cover the rate increase from Adair County Public Water and finance future water line upgrades.
