After an exceptionally long, cold winter and a wet start to spring for most of the country, many are now yearning for summer. They may want to retract that wish, though; the 2014 edition of the Farmers’ Almanac says the coming summer will be exceptionally hot across much of North America, with “oppressive” humidity throughout the eastern half of the United States. Only the Pacific Northwest is predicted to be “comfortably warm and dray.” Continued on Page 2A

22nd Annual Letter Carriers’ Food Drive It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s helping millions of Americans! On Saturday, May 10, the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Food Drive will once again spread out across America to help provide assistance to Americans who are struggling with hunger. Now in its 22nd year, the Food Drive effort is the nation’s largest single-day drive. In 2013, 74.4 million pounds of food was collected, which brought the grand total of donations to just under 1.3 billion pounds of food collected over the history of the drive. Put your non-perishable food donation in a bag by your mailbox. Your carrier will pick it up and deliver it to the local food bank. “It’s such an easy way for our customers to help people in their own communities,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “All they have to do is leave a non-perishable food donation in a bag by their mailboxes. And that’s it! Then, just like we do every Saturday of the year, letter carriers

will swing by—only on Saturday, May 10, we’ll be ready to pick up the food donations and make sure they get to a local food bank or other charity within that community.” Food banks and shelters usually benefit from an upswing in charitable donations during the winter holiday season. By springtime, however, their stocks tend to dwindle to critically low levels. “Helping local support organizations deal with this postholiday lull in donations is the main reason we hold our national drive on the second Saturday in May,” Rolando said, adding that since many school meal programs are suspended during summer months, millions of children are left scrambling to find alternate sources of nutrition. “We’re grateful for the helping hand we get from family members and friends, from other postal employees, and from groups like local National Guard units, the Boy and Girl Scouts—not to mention food bank workers.”

the nation will see near-normal summer precipitation; the Western states will be drier than normal. In particular, the Farmers’ Almanac says it expects “tornado alley” to flare-up in late June. The publication is also forecasting an earlyseason tropical storm along the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast states by the

end of June and a possible hurricane or tropical storm during the third week of July near or along the Atlantic Seaboard. Typically, tropical cyclone activity over Atlantic and Caribbean waters increases precipitously during the second week of August and reaches its traditional peak on September 10. The Farmers’ Almanac has been predicting the weather since 1818. It bases its long-range weather forecasts on a mathematical and astronomical formula that takes things like sunspot activity, tidal action of the moon, the position of the planets and a variety of other factors into consideration. It is one of the only sources brave enough to publish a long-range outlook for up to a year in advance. Independent readers have determined that the Almanac is 80 percent accurate, on average.

Government Day

La Plata Is On It’s Toes!! While I was at the La Plata Cemetery a couple weeks back I noticed what was I believe to be a dumping ground for all the old flowers and stones that had been moved, whether it was from mowing, new stones being moved in, or what have you, the place was a disaster. I called Randy Bunch, cemetery board member, and notified Lois Bragg, new Mayor for the City on Tuesday of last week, April 22nd about the site and asked if it would be problem to have it looked into. The response was immediate!! Randy called me back immediately and said he had spoken with the President of the Cemetery Board and they would act as soon as possible. Lois then notified me that Greg Tuggle and Kiley Harpster, City Employees would begin taking care of the eyesore asap. And guess what............. they did!!

On Wednesday I received a note from Lois with pictures of the La Plata City Crew out at the cemetery removing all the old flowers and trash and organizing the old stones. Amazing!!! What I thought might be a long drawn out process of cleaning up the cemetery was an overnight wonder!! Thank You to the Cemetery Board, La Plata City Crew and Lois Bragg, Mayor of La Plata!! It’s good to know that even though we move away and only get to voice our opinions now as outsiders, that you respect our comments and take action! La Plata is an AWESOME place to live. I miss it, miss all of you, but makes me happy to know that everyone there STILL cares about that little town. Which will ALWAYS be home to me!! Sincerely and Appreciative, Becky Jeffcoat, Columbia, MO

As we approach the end of session, I am excited to begin preparing for the annual Northeast Missouri “Local Government Day” on June 24, 2014. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to speak with different officials throughout the district. It is essential for me, as your senator, to hear concerns and ideas from individuals who work very hard to keep our cities and counties functioning smoothly and efficiently. I represent 14 counties and want to meet with as many people as I can. I find that the best way to do this is by inviting all of the hard-working officials of the 18th Senatorial District to one place: Jefferson City. While at the State Capitol, we will discuss important topics such as the budget, transportation, waste water regulations, workforce investment, purchasing and transparency. I would like to extend a

personal invitation to all of the city officials, including mayors, city council members, city managers, county commissioners and city/county clerks. This is an opportune time to meet with multiple departments and discuss issues that are relevant to your counties and cities. I look forward to meeting all of you and discussing pertinent and important issues. The last three “Local Government Days” have been very successful and informative. I hope to see some familiar faces along with some new ones. As always, lunch will be provided. The agenda is still tentative and will be provided at a later date. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call my office. Senator Munzlinger serves the counties of Adair, Chariton, Clark, Knox, Lewis, Linn, Macon, Marion, Pike, Schuyler, Scotland, Shelby, Ralls and Randolph.

3rd District Legislative Report Momentum grows for Tax Reform Legislation… The Missouri House of Representatives continued working at a quick pace again this week passing legislation. However, the most talked about legislation continues to be Senate Substitute No. 3 for Senate Committee Substitute for Senate Bills 509 & 496 (SS#3 SCS SBs 509 & 496 - Income Taxation) now commonly referred to as SB 509. Support for HB 509 is gaining in momentum as more and more citizens are learning the truth about it. As I reported last week, I support SB 509. This legislation, which would cut the top income tax rate from 6 percent to 5.5 percent over a period of years depending on increases to general revenue. It also would phase in a 25 percent tax exemption for Missouri business income in 5 percent increments. For low income Missourians who make $20,000 or less the bill would adjust the exemption for personal income taxes from $2,100 to $2,600. In addition, the bill would require that the brackets for individual income tax be adjusted annually for the percent increase in inflation. HB 509 is a concise five page bill and should NOT be compared with last year’s one hundred seventy-seven page House Bill 253 that was vetoed by Governor Jay Nixon. The new tax reform bill has safeguards that will protect education funding and other essential programs. SB 509 will NOT go into effect unless state revenues grow by $150 million annually. HB 509 has bi-partisan support in the a z z General Assembly. When fully implemented, this bill would reduce the tax burden on individuals and businesses by more than $600 million annually. The keys to the success of this year’s bill are the safeguards it contains combined with the legislature’s commitment to record increased levels of funding for education. As noted, this bill requires that revenues increase by at least $150 million each year before each phase of the tax cut is implemented. I want to emphasize that the new tax reform would not impair the legislature’s ability to fund education. This year the budget plan approved by the House that would increase K-12 education funding by as much as $278 million and funding to the state’s public universities and community colleges by as much as 3 percent. My commitment for education, the developmentally disabled and for mental health funding remains a top priority and the safeguards contained in this bill protects that commitment. I would encourage

the governor to join the majority of those in the Missouri General Assembly in supporting this responsible tax reform plan that emphasizes investment in our families and in small businesses rather than inefficient government bureaucracy. HB 509 is responsible and is reasonable tax reform. Consider the following reasons why SB 509 is the right legislation: Why We Need Tax Reform •Missouri can’t compete with other states in the Midwest that either don’t tax income or that have recently reduced their income tax rates. •Missouri has a comparatively high personal income tax rate, upon which our state revenue depends heavily. •While revenues continue to considerably increase, the state’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) remains stagnant. •Missouri is ranked 37th in the nation for GDP growth per capita. •Missouri is not growing at a fast enough pace. Eighteen states have cut taxes in one form or another in 2013 (source: Tax Foundation). •Missourians believe returning surplus money to taxpayers to grow the size of the economy, rather than using a surplus to grow the size of the economy, is a good idea. •Surveys consistently show that Missourians think government spending is full of waste. •Fiscal notes are based on static revenue, meaning they don’t account for any new growth coming into the state or take into account the tax dollars that are leaving the state when people move. Our schools are underfunded now because Missouri is behind the national average in population growth and we are bleeding jobs to no income and low income tax states. What This Bill Does •Individual Income Taxes: •SB 509 reduces individual income taxes by one half percent over a period of five years beginning in 2017 •Small business income tax deduction: •Beginning in 2017 small businesses will be allowed to deduct a maximum of 25 percent of business income over a period of no less than 5 years •This tax cut is specifically structured to ease the tax burden for small busi-

nesses •Small businesses make up more than 90 percent of our employers in the state, and this tax cut is specifically tailored to allow those employers to thrive and grow •Tax cut for low-income Missourians: •SB 509 will increases the personal income tax exemption amount by $500 for those whose adjusted gross income is less than $20,000 •The tax benefits of SB 509 are triggered when the highest net GR collected in the previous three fiscal years is exceeded by at least $150 million. •Beginning in 2017, SB 509 also requires brackets of Missouri taxable income to be adjusted for inflation. Why SB 509 is the Right Choice •This is a pro-jobs bill that incentivizes growth and puts money back into the tax payers’ hands so they can decide how to spend it. •By not combining income tax cuts with sales tax issues, this legislation has created more consensus about how to improve Missouri’s tax environment. •The personal income tax cut portion of this bill is a reasonable and sustainable approach to make Missouri more competitive with its neighbors. •Small business owners are hard-working, passionate people; they are the backbone of our communities, and they deserve this tax relief. •Providing tax relief to small businesses in Missouri will make us one of the most competitive states, regionally and nationwide. •Offers extra tax relief to low income Missouri citizens who would normally not benefit from a reduction in individual income taxes.

Missouri’s wingshooters can become more efficient hunters, taking fewer marginal shots and reducing the numbers of wounded game. Hunters have long been leaders in conservation, helping Missouri develop regulations, improve habitat and control wildlife populations. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites migratory and upland bird hunters to hone their skills at an effective wingshooting clinic starting at 10 a.m. on May 24 at the MDC Northeast Regional Office in Kirksville. The workshop is free, but participants need to preregister by May 21. Participants will learn about wounding rates in waterfowl, performance differences of nontoxic vs. lead shot, how to select the best ammunition and choke for game birds and hunting conditions, general information on the latest non-toxic shotgun ammunition, and how to sharpen shotgun shooting skills including improving range and target distance estimation.

Participants will also learn the latest in shotgun patterning and how to pick the best load for your gun. “This workshop is an excellent opportunity for hunters to learn how to use nontoxic shot effectively and with confidence, which can save game birds and wildlife from lead poisoning, especially in wetland areas,” said MDC Outdoor Skills Specialist Rob Garver. “In addition to boosting your wingshooting performance and conservation results, the effective wingshooting workshop can help you save money on expenses-fewer wasted shells mean more money in your pocket!” The workshop will also cover the characteristics of steel shot. The US Fish and Wildlife Service require the use of non-toxic steel shot on waterfowl hunting areas. It is also mandatory on many Conservation Department areas used for upland game bird hunting. The course will demonstrate how steel can be just as effective as lead, or more so. Steel shot simply requires greater shooting precision compared to lead because steel produces a smaller, more compact pattern. “If you know how it acts

and performs,” said Garver, referring to steel shot, “you’re going to be a much better hunter.” Participants should bring their hunting shotguns, choke tubes and non-toxic ammunition if they wish to pattern their guns. Also, they will need to bring eye and ear protection for use on a shooting range, a stool or chair, and a sack lunch. Clay targets and non-toxic 12 and 20 gauge practice ammunition will be provided. This free workshop is open to adults age 18 or over. For more information or to preregister, send an email to Robert.Garver@ mdc.mo.gov or call 660785-2420. The Northeast Regional Office is located just south of Kirksville on Highway 63.

The Shepherd Calls Church, It’s a Good Place to Be Last Sunday was Easter. Some people attend church on Easter Sunday only. If you are one of those Easter-only church attendees, you might find the following true anecdotes interesting. He was a big man. With strange hostility, he announced, “I haven’t been to church in over 20 years, not since I was a boy.” “You don’t seem very happy about that,” I noted. There was a long pause. “So,” I asked, “Are you happy?” “No”, he finally answered. “You haven’t been to church in 20 years, and you are not happy. Could there be some connection?” I asked. I met a friend at a convention. “How’s your family?” he asked. It’s a good question. How is your family? Maintaining a good healthy family is difficult. It seems harder today than ever. Most of us need all the help we can get. One place to get good help with your family is at church. In church, your family will learn about the Heavenly Father who loves your family more

than Himself. If you want the best for your family, take them to church. We had just finished the interment for a very humble, dedicated Christian woman. A middle-aged man I did not know hung around as the family was leaving. I asked if he was part of the family. “No,” he replied. “How did you know her?” I asked. “Were you neighbors?” “No”, he answered again. “Long ago she was my Sunday School teacher at church. I read of her passing in the paper and decided to attend the service. She really made a difference in my life.” Sitting in a restaurant, I overheard two ladies talking. Seems they were close friends, and one was moving away. “I don’t know what I’ll do,” the first lady said. “You are the only friend I have.” “You need to make some new friends.” “How?” “Well, I have many friends at church.” “I don’t go to church,” she responded gruffly “Oh, but you should! Church is a good place to be.” She’s right! Church is a good place to be. Make your plans now to go Sunday.

Clarence Chronicles by Patty Truitt

Well here is hoping all of you have had a wonderful week. I have been so busy that the last week seams like it has been two weeks. Last Wednesday morning I went to Columbia to University Hospital for a lot of tests. The doctor wanted to make sure my medicine was really helping me. I got done at the hospital about 2:30 and I went to Old Navy. I needed some new flip-flops for the summer. Then I went to the Mall and spent some time in the bookstore looking at books and enjoying a mocha. At five I went to my granddaughter Aimee’s home. She was just getting home from work and I always enjoy spending time with her three children, Courtney, Logan, and Gavin. We went to Courtney’s dance practice. When practice was over we went by Aimee’s house to pick up Joe, her husband who was just getting home from work. We had a great time having supper at Ruby Tuesday. It is really something to see all

the lights and all the stores that are open at nine at night. They thought it was funny when I told them all that was open in Clarence was Casey’s. I spent the night at Aimee’s and the next morning I went back to the hospital for a conference with my doctors. They say we are on track with my medication. I stopped at Hy-Vee before leaving for home. That big store is great to go shopping in, a lot of everything. I was sure glad to get back home. Friday my daughter Laura and granddaughter Katherine came to visit. With them were two of my great grandchildren Cole and Allie Williams. They are the children of my granddaughter Krystal and they are adorable. Cole is all boy and Allie is a sweet and very beautiful little girl. We had a great time playing outside. Sunday was one of the most beautiful Easter Sundays I have ever seen. It was a perfect sunrise and I loved being at Church for the Easter Service. We had

Clarence Care Center

By: Kim Hutcherson

John Laye and Danny Harvey led Church services for the residents and their guests Sunday morning. Virgie Engle played the piano. Those attending were Grace Killen, Blanche Hoffman, Dorothy Dee Daniel, Jim Hill, Isabel Hutcherson, Mary Jane Rainey, Richard Resa, Frank & Martha Mason, Elizabeth Bach, Doreena Young, Larry Vaughn, Helen Griswold, and Norma Latimer. The residents enjoyed a relaxing time this afternoon while listening to Bill Bevan read. Monday morning, Donna Barton and the residents resumed their reading from the book, “Running With Giants”, by John Maxwell. Our faithful Bingo Volunteers, Margaret Lathrom, Helen Sinklear, Delores Burmeister,

and Mary Lee Gingrich, were here this afternoon. Those playing Bingo were Norma Latimer, Colleen Reid, Doreena Young, Helen Griswold, Dorothy Dee Daniel, Isabel Hutcherson, Blanche Hoffman, Grace Killen, Virgie Engle, Martha Mason, Frank Mason, Larry Vaughn, and Darrell McDowell. The grand prize winners were Helen, Isabel, and Grace. Stephanie Holder and her dog, TJ, visited with the residents and staff Tuesday morning. TJ was a huge hit with everyone and he was a very well behaved little dog! The CCC Rhythm Band performed their first ever concert this afternoon in the Community Room! Donna and the residents had fun experimenting with different instruments as they played

along with music cd’s. We greeted Wednesday morning with a visit from Harold and Molly, then Fun with Words with Donna Barton. Donna and the residents discussed the meaning of some words and also talked about all the “words” that are no longer in our vocabulary. Larry Mitchell, from the Catholic Church, led Bible study this afternoon. The study title was “The Road to Emmaus”. Scripture was read from Luke 24:13-35. Shirley Carrison played the piano, and Jim Hill assisted with the song books. The Friendship Design class met Thursday morning. The residents were creative once again as they made another cute craft with the help of Janice Wilson and Stephanie

Holder. The afternoon might of been dark and rainy outside, but inside the residents and staff were partying away with a Popcorn and Dance Party! The music was fantastic as we listened and danced to a Blake Totten cd. Clark Dobbs, from the Macon First Baptist Church, led Bible study Friday morning. The topic of study was “But Now.... Victory”. Clark read scripture from 1 Corinthians 15:20-28 and reminded us that because Jesus is alive, believers will also experience resurrection and victory over death. Mark and Donna took Marvin Burkhardt, Larry Vaughn, Doreena Young, and Colleen Reid shopping in Macon this afternoon. It was the perfect afternoon for an outing as the weather

was simply beautiful! Ronnie Shores came out Saturday morning and visited with the residents while sharing his collection of cd’s, then, after lunch, the residents watched a movie during Movie Time with Darrell.

We would like to thank Sandra Guffey and Bonnie Moore for their recent donations to the Care Center. We are so grateful for every gift, every volunteer, every act of kindness shown to us. We are beyond blessed!

Heartland Headlines

by Marsha Hammons

Julie Kay and Daniel Howe, Dylan, Dalton, and Sheridan od Novinger had Easter dinner with Basil and Marsha Hammons. Dolores Harpster and Bill and Mary Beldon visited Joan Neal of Mattoon, Illinois Thursday and Friday. There will be an 80th birthday party for Rhoda Graham on Saturday, May

Virgil “Virgie” Engle represented the Clarence Care Center at the 2014 Activity Director Association of Missouri Queen Pageant on April 25th. The pageant was held at the Luther Manor in Hannibal, MO. Virgie won the title of Queen and we are so proud of her!

by Kathy Nickerson

3 from 2 - 4 PM at the Comfort Inn in Macon. Instead of gifts, she asks guests to bring something for the food pantry. The family also ask for a card shower for Rhoda. Cards may be sent to Rhoda Graham, 26942 Iowa Street, Atlanta, Mo. 63530

The week after Easter was a non-academic week at Heartland Christian Academy. Our school runs yearround with several breaks throughout the year. During non-academic weeks, the school offers special events and optional activities for students who want something to do. This week started out with a trip to Bonkers in Quincy. It was a noisy, crazy day for everyone at this indoor playground, but elementary instructor Jennie Dombrowski admits the teachers may enjoy this outing as much as the kids. Mrs. Dombrowski also

led extra Psalty practices during the week. Every year, the entire elementary school works together to present a spring musical based on the Psalty the Songbook stories. We are always amazed at the choreography and attention to detail the children pull off in the final production. The same kids who go bonkers on a playground can step-in-time like professionals. And they can sing like true worshipers. We are so grateful to the team of teachers who work with this project and manage to direct all that energy toward God. Well-done.

The La Plata Cub Scouts Troop 27 led the pledges on Tuesday, April 22, 2014., at the Lions’s Meeting held in the Baptist Rec Center. Back row left to right: Joe Ruppel, Tim Powell, Russ Orgill. Front row left to right: Corbin Orgill, Joseph Ruppel, Teagan Powell, Haiden Powell, Noah Mitchell

While it has been a very long winter, spring is finally upon us and summer soon to follow. Also with that arrival, will be the start to the 2014 season of the La Plata Santa Fe Lake and with some different ideas and policies being incorporated for the Lake. Somewhat new for this year, will be various changes in the fees. Daily fees will remain at $2 individual, or if preferred, a $20 individual Season pass may be purchased. These will be the only options available to Lake Guests and a pass of either choice will be required for use of the Lake’s grounds or facilities, regardless of time of day. Children who have not yet started Kindergarten will remain free. There will also be no charge for adults who are not using the facilities, but are only present to provide supervision of other guests. Specific date reservation of the Lake’s shelter may now be made and will require a $10 reservation fee. Unless previously reserved, the shelter will remain available for use by all Lake

Guests on a first come first serve basis. Boat permits will again be required and remain available as in the past. Management structure will also make a change. A Lake Manager will replace what was the Lake Caretaker, with Assistant Managers working under direction of the Lake Manager. Applications are currently being accepted for these positions. A revised set of Rules and Policies will also be incorporated, with the Lake Management overseeing that Lake Guests are in compliance with these policies. These adjustments (along with others) are made in an effort to create a more safe, economical, and additionally, child, youth, and family friendly environment, helping to ensure that the Lake will be available for the enjoyment of both present and future guests for many years to come. Lake opening is scheduled for the Memorial Day weekend. Come and make use of this great and unique facility.

Consider a Missouri Wine Country Getaway Did you know that Missouri boasts over 100 wineries with a rich history? According to the Missouri Wine and Grape Board, French settlers in the St. Louis and Ste. Genevieve regions began growing grapes in the late 18th and early 19th century. Grape growing accelerated in the 19th century with the arrival of German settlers in central Missouri, near Hermann. In the 1860s Missouri’s Phylloxera resistant rootstock enabled the recovery of southern France’s wine industry. By the 1880s, Missouri was a leading producer of grapes. Except for small‐scale cultivation of Concord grapes for unfermented grape juice, grape production ceased with Prohibition but was revived with the re‐opening of Missouri wineries in the 1960s. Missouri now ranks 12th among U.S. grape producing states. C.V. Riley: In 1868, Charles Valentine Riley became the first state appointed entomologist in Missouri. Riley is credited with saving the French wine industry after he realized that the American native grapevine, Vitis labrusca was resistant to the harmful grape Phylloxera, which was reeking havoc on French vineyards during the late 1800s. Riley helped create a Phylloxera‐immune rootstock using the U.S. grapevine. The rootstock was shipped to France and helped rebuild the European wine industry. Missouri Wine Through the Years 1837: German settlers established the town of Hermann on the banks of the Missouri River. Although too rocky for many crops, the ground around Hermann was well suited for growing wine grapes. A decade later, Hermann’s wineries were producing more than 10,000 gallons of wine a year. Eventually, more than 60 wineries

populated the small town, and by the 1880s, wine lovers in America and Europe were enjoying two milliongallons of Missouri wine each year. 1870s: A dangerous vineyard pest, the phylloxera louse, destroyed enormous tracts of vineyards in France. Missouri helped rebuild the European vineyards by sending phylloxera resistant American rootstock to be grafted with French vine cuttings. The resultant vines proved extremely hardy and soon the French wine industry was back on its feet. Late 1800s: Italian immigrants establish vineyards in the St. James area of Missouri. Missouri’s wine industry thrived at the turn of the century with about 100 wineries throughout the state. 1919: Prohibition dealt a near fatal blow to the Missouri wine industry. When the 18th Amendment was repealed 13 years later, little remained of the once strong industry. Negative after effects of Prohibition, in the form of high liquor taxes and license fees,lingered for decades and prevented the wine industry from reestablishing itself. 1960s and 1970s: The rebirth of the commercial wine industry in Missouri began with the restoration of several original wineries. The early pioneers worked hard to regain the former stature of the wine industry amid a slowly changing cultural and regulatory environment. 1980s: A new tax on wine enabled the establishment of the Missouri Wine & Grape program. A state viticulturalist was hired to assist in the restoration process and Missouri State University ‘s fruit experiment station began working with winemakers to determine grape varieties suitable for Missouri ‘s climate. Augusta became the first federally recognized American Viticultural Area (AVA)

M K

in 1980. The wine regions around Hermann, the southwest Missouri Ozark mountains and highlands and the south central region around St. James have also been designated as AVAs. 2000: The Missouri wine industry in the new millennium is thriving. The number of wineries has increased and Missouri wineries are producing diverse, complex and sophisticated wines, wines that easily earn top awards in national and international competitions. 2003: The Norton/Cynthiana varietal is passed in legislation as Missouri’s official state grape. 2005: The Missouri Wine & Grape Board is formed. No longer an advisory Board, the Wine & Grape Board directs the marketing and research efforts of the Missouri wine industry. 2006: The Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and Enology is established. ICCVE, funded by the Missouri Wine & Grape Board, conducts research on grape varieties and vineyard management techniques that contribute to the growth of the wine industry in Missouri and the Midwest. 2011: The state of Missouri proudly welcomed its 100th winery to its lineup.

The Macon Tigers looked to continue an impressive season with a Monday road trip to Bowling Green. The Tigers would suffer a heart breaking loss 2-3. The Tigers would tie the game with two in the 7th only to see the home team walk off with a run in the bottom of the inning. “With BG leading 2-0 going in to the top of the 7th, Trae Adams led off the inning drawing a walk. Collin Patrick would then come up and drive Trae in with a RBI triple. Craig Smith would come up next and tie the game with a RBI single.” Craig Smith was1-2 with a RBI single, Collin Patrick went1-3 with a RBI triple, Christian Thrasher 1-3 with a single and Brendan Watts was stellar on the mound allowing no earned runs. ““This was the first time this season that I have been disappointed with how we played. Brendan pitched a great game and gave up 0 ER against a good hitting team. We gave them 3 unearned runs and lost 3-2. They are a good team, but we shot ourselves in the foot tonight on defense and didn’t make plays that we usually make. We have to find a way to learn from this game and get back to playing good baseball like we’ve done all season.” Coach Kyle Roebuck The Tigers would bounce right back the following night with a 5 to 1 victory over Monroe City. “We sent 8 guys to the plate in the first inning and scored 4 runs. In the inning Collin Patrick had a RBI triple, Craig Smith had a RBI single, and Christian Thrasher had a 2 RBI single.” “This was a good bounce back after a frustrating night on Monday. We hit the ball hard most of the game and did some positive things at the plate. They made some good plays on defense even when we hit

the ball hard. Christian did a good job getting through 5 innings on the mound and holding them to 1 run. Cole and Craig looked strong pitching the last two innings. Solid effort tonight all the way around.” Coach Roebuck Friday evening the Tigers dropped a non-conference game against Palmyra 7 to 17. The Tigers got down early and battled as they had done all season but could not overcome some costly errors. Collin Patrick was 2-3 with a double, single, and 3 RBI, Craig Smith went 1-1 with a single, 2 Runs, 2 walks, Jordan Bealmer 1-3 with a single, 2 RBI and Brendan Watts, Trae Adams, Christian Thrasher, and Cole Birdsong all had a hit a piece. “On the positive side tonight, I thought we had a great approach at the plate. We had a lot of base runners on and scored 7 runs against a tough pitcher. Unfortunately, our defense had 3 errors and our pitching gave them 8 walks. You just can’t beat good teams when you are giving them free passes to get on base. You have to give Palmyra credit; they made us pay for our mistakes.” Coach Roebuck Saturday the Tigers got in a home makeup game against Highland. The Tigers took an early lead with two runs in the first and three runs in the 2nd inning. Highland battled back with single runs in four straight innings. But the Tigers would prevail yet again with three more runs in the fifth and win 8 to 4. “I was happy with how we played this game. It isn’t easy playing a Saturday morning game after a tough loss last night. We weren’t at 100% physically, but our kids competed hard and found a way to secure a win this morning. We had a lot of guys contribute and that’s a good thing for us.” Coach Roebuck

Wet a Line With MDC Fishing is a great way for kids and families to have fun outdoors, discover nature, and make happy memories together. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites families to a day of fishing from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 31 at Forest Lake, located in Thousand Hills State Park in Kirksville. A morning clinic will be held from 10 a.m. to noon and cover basic fishing skills.There is no cost for the program, but preregistration is required by May 23. During the morning clinic, participants will learn proper fishing techniques, different methods of fishing (pole and line, jugs, lines), as well as the various types of bait and tackle to use on Missouri’s large impoundments. Plus, there will be a presentation on fish biology and management. Beginning at 1 p.m., participants will head to the lake and be taken out by guides on boats to try out their new skills for a day of fishing. A fish cleaning

and preparation demonstration will be given after fishing. Fishing gear will be available for the day, or bring your own fishing equipment. All participants are responsible for their meals. “For more than a million anglers, conservation makes Missouri a great place to fish,” said MDC Outdoor Skills Specialist Rob Garver. “Fishing is a wonderful pastime that all ages can participate in and best of all, there are places to wet a line all over the state.” Thousand Hills State Park is located at 20431 Missouri 157 in Adair County, two miles west of Kirksville.

Missouri Grapes

Catawba is an American Vitis labruscana type grape that was discovered by the Catawba River in North Carolina. Catawba is a pinkish-blue grape that is processed as a white wine grape. It makes a medium bodied, fruity, labrusca wine that is best made in a sweeter style. The wine is pink to orange in color. Cayuga White is a hybrid wine grape released from the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station at Geneva in 1972. It has nice, fruity (citrus) notes and could be described as “Germanic” (Riesling-like) in style. Chambourcin is a French-American hybrid blue-black wine grape with beautiful large loose clusters of medium-sized berries. It makes a high quality, fullbodied, dry red wine that is moderately fruity, possibly with some subdued berry notes. Chardonel is a high quality white hybrid wine grape released from the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station at Geneva, New York in 1996. It is a cross of Chardonnay by Seyval Blanc and is very similar in flavor to its Chardonnay parent. Concord grapes were selected from the wild in the 1840s in Concord, Massachusetts.
