AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY HONORS MACON RESIDENT Debbie Wiggans, of Macon, Mo., was honored by the American Cancer Society with the 2013 Hero of Hope Award. The award recognizes 28 cancer survivors and caregivers in the 6-state High Plains Division who have had exemplary involvement with Relay For Life, made significant contributions to cancer control, and made an impact in the lives of others. The American Cancer Society selected Debbie as well as several others from across six states representing 11 regions. The honorees selected symbolize the courageous struggle against cancer as they and family members deal with the physical and emotional aspects of their experience. They represent courageous voices of hope. Debbie was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma of the larynx in 2009 and it quickly spread to her lungs. Through the American Cancer Society, Debbie received a gas card for travel expense along with receiving a free wig. She participated in the Look Good…Feel Better program, which helps women to cope with skin changes and hair loss using cosmetics and skin care products. During her treatment, she and her family attended the support group at Ellis Fischel, which prompted Debbie to start a cancer support group in Macon, MO.

“The Hero of Hope Award offers an exceedingly visible sign of one’s courageous battle against cancer as well as inspires support and involvement in the programs offered by the Society,” says Cynthia Dickson, American Cancer Society Relay For Life Hero of Hope Team Chair and survivor. Each Hero received their award at a special ceremony during the Relay For Life Leadership Summit held in

Dallas on September 28, 2012. “Hope for future cancer patients, and proof of the progress that is being made in cancer research, is evident through hearing these Heroes’ stories and meeting them,” says Dickson. “We are proud of these individuals who prove to be true Heroes in their communities. They are without a doubt profiles of courage and the reason we continue to Relay.”

Bucklin City Council Reviews Contract for Garbage Pickup Bucklin City Council met in regular session October 10th, 2012 at City Hall. Present for the 5:00 p m meeting were Mayor Don Noah, Councilmen Dennis Cole, Barry Shipley and Larry Daniels; Darrell Akins, Amber Burnam, John Wright, Robert Walters, Glen Kitchen and Labe Mendelsohn. Motion to approve September minutes made and approved. Motion to approve and pay bills made and approved. Amber Burnam, representative of Veolia, came before the council to discuss a new trash contract. Option #1 was a 5 year contract at a cost of $11.60 per customer and $9.30 for a senior rate. Veolia must use a single axle truck. Option #2 was a 2 year contract at a cost of $12.00 per customer and a senior rate of $9.60. Also Veolia must use a single axle truck. Bulk pick up will be every week limited to one large item per customer per week instead of two times a year.

Appliance collection will still be available twice a year. A motion to accept the 2 year contract was made and carried. President of the Bucklin R2 School Board, Darrell Akins, asked to address the council. He made a statement that someone representing the city had created a scene after a ballgame at the school concerning the new two school co-cp. At this time council man Dennis Cole spoke up and said he was probably the one Mr. Akins was referring to. Dennis said he was not representing the city and stated he was having a conversation with another patron as a private citizen and taxpayer. He was in no way representing the city when Mr. Coulson entered into the conversation. At this time things became loud and more intense apparently creating the scene Mr. Akins was referring to. Mr. Akins stated that he wasn’t there. He said his information came from Mr. Coulson. Mr. Akins

said he did not want there to be a problem between the school and the city. At this time Mayor Noah stated there are no big problems between the city and the school; however, the city would like for the school board to require the Superintendent live in the city of Bucklin. Also the Mayor suggested the board relax the policy of not letting people speak at the board meetings unless they are on the agenda prior to the meeting. Mr. Akins stated that they would discuss these issues. Two sewer adjustments came before the council for Evelyn Riley $24.84 and Carol Lozaway $26.64. Motion was made and carried to allow adjustments. The Experienced Works Program that Jerry Teeter works under is expiring on November 18th. Jerry had spoken with Mayor Noah and would like to stay on as a city employee. Motion was made not to hire anyone at this time. Motion carried. City Clerk John Wright advised the council the DNR primacy fee is due for the period of August 2011 to July 2012 at a rate of $3.24 per connection. The council felt for this time period the city would pick this fee up. A motion was made and carried to pass along this fee from now forward to the city water customers as a monthly fee at the rate of 27 cents. Mayor Noah asked the council what they thought about putting a building where the old water tower stood. There was discussion and he asked the council to keep this in mind to consider later. Street Superintendent Walters advised he may need to purchase 3 sewer risers and lids at a cost of about $400.00 per riser and lid. All streets that were to be paved are paved with 630 tons of asphalt used. Motion to adjourn made and carried at 6:15 p m.

Halloween Planning: Make it Fun and Safe! Colonel Ron Replogle, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, encourages everyone to plan ahead on Halloween. Safety is an important part of a fun Halloween. MOTORISTS: Motorists are reminded to pay attention for trick-ortreaters of all ages. Young children excited by Halloween could dart in front of a vehicle. Slow down, and drive with extra caution. If you are headed to a costume party, make sure the costume doesn’t hamper your vision while you’re driving to the

event! Motorists picking up and dropping off trickor-treaters may increase the number of vehicles on the road, therefore affecting traffic patterns. Please be courteous and stay alert. T R I C K - O R - T R E ATERS: Keep costumes short to prevent tripping and consider make-up rather than masks. Masks can make it difficult for children to see oncoming traffic. Wear light-colored clothing or add reflective tape to dark costumes to make them visible. Flame resistant costumes are

the best ones. Remember to look both ways when crossing the street. Use sidewalks wherever possible when you’re walking around a neighborhood. Trick-or-treaters are urged to do so while it is light outside. If you go out later, take a flashlight with you. An adult should always accompany small children, and older children should stay in groups. PARENTS: Tell your child to approach only familiar houses that are well lighted. Remind them they should never enter a stranger’s house or vehi-

cle. Trick-or-treating with your children can be fun, and it’s good for their safety. Afterward, you might be able to talk them out of a treat.

ADULTS: Consider spending Halloween at home answering the front door. If you do attend a Halloween party that includes alcohol, make sure you have a sober, desig-

nated driver for the trip home. Alcohol, even in small amounts, slows reaction time and dulls the senses. Drinking alcohol could have a sad and possibly deadly result.

Pumpkins, Ghosts and Goblins Oh My! So many yards are decorated and there’s more every day! Tis the time of haunting and hay rides and all the great fall activities! I can’t wait until the weekend! I am having a “surprise” birthday party! Just for the record, I don’t know this. Of course by the time this is out it will be over. My daughter and husband has went to a lot of trouble and the funny thing is, neither of them can keep a secret so when I get bits and pieces from each of them it all comes together! Can’t help but love them! As some of you know, I have been taking the Citizens training at the Highway Patrol Headquarters. When I was called and asked to do this, I actually was wishing I would have said no. I am so glad I didn’t and I would recommend this to everyone. If you are called and asked be sure and SAY YES! In my opinion, you couldn’t pay me enough to be a Highway Patrol Officer. The risk these men and women take every day is crazy! I never really thought about it before, but they are some brave souls and I thank them for being out there for our protection. Of course my favorite part has been the gun range and even better, the FAT Simulator. You can laugh, I did. When I was told we would be training with it, the first thing come to mind was “Now I know why they called me!” FATS stands for

LIEBHART Fire Arms Training Simulator so I didn’t lose any weight, but I can tell you I had the best time doing it and wish I had one at home! Of course after finding out the cost of one that idea left quickly. So please remember, when you seen anyone in uniform, give them a nod or hand shake of appreciation! My favorite thing is to anonymously pick up their lunch tabs if you happen to be at the same place eating. Watch this week’s paper for ads by Schools! The Marketing class from Bevier High School has designed ads for local businesses. Thank you to all the businesses that supported this project and be sure to watch for the other ads by local schools in future Home Press South editions. For those of you that enjoy the downtown parades, the Halloween parade is on Oct. 29th at 6:00pm and the Christmas parade is on Nov. 30th. Don’t forget, if you are not able to make it to the parade you can log on to our website at www. and watch the parade from our webcam! Until next week!

Annual Fire Meeting is Nov. 3rd Callao Town & Country Fire Department will hold their annual meeting Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 at Callao Christian Church. A complimentary meal will be served at 6:00 P.M., followed by a business meeting to elect three directors and take care of official business.

Legend of The Jack O’ Lantern Was Brought Here From Ireland The history of the Jack O’Lantern was brought to America by the Irish. The legend goes like this... There once was a miserable man who drank too much named Stingy Jack. Stingy Jack use to play tricks on everyone including his mom and the Devil. One day, he tricked the Devil into climbing an apple tree. Stingy Jack then hurriedly placed crosses around the trunk of the tree. Leaving the Devil stuck up in the tree. He wouldn’t let him down until the Devil promised

not to take his soul. The devil agreed and Jack let him down. Time went on and Jack passed away and met Saint Peter at the pearly gates of Heaven. Saint Peter told old Stingy Jack that he was too mean and cruel to go to Heaven so he went down to Hell. The Devil kept his promise and wouldn’t allow Stingy Jack in. Now Jack was nervous because he had nowhere to go but wander about forever in the darkness between Heaven and Hell. The Devil tossed him an ember from the flames of Hell to help

him light the way. Stingy Jack placed the ember in a hollowed out Turnip, which was one of his favorite foods. From then on Stingy Jack roamed the earth without a resting place, using his Jack O’Lantern to light his path. Therefore the first Jack O’Lantern’s were turnips not pumpkins. When the Irish came to America they discovered that pumpkins were much bigger and easier to carve. To carve a Jack O’Lantern you will need 1 pumpkin, 1 medium spoon, a paring

knife, and a medium sized knife, newspaper, a bowl, dry erase marker, candle and a lighter or matches. Simply, cut a 4 to 5 inch circular section out of the bottom or top of the pumpkin. Scoop out all of the seeds and pulp. Draw a face using triangles for the eyes and nose. Then add a notched tooth smile. Light your candle and place it in the pumpkin. If you carve out the bottom it actually helps prevent the top from caving in. Enjoy a safe and happy Halloween, everyone.

Country Living By: Carrie Chiarottino I am enjoying this fall weather so much. We are getting a lot done around the house. We’ve mowed the grass twice since the last measurable rain we had. Jeremy tilled my garden under and planted rye. As I understand it, it is supposed to be some kind of ground cover and tilled under in the spring. It’s supposed to be something good to put back into the ground. I guess we’ll see how that works out. The garden worked up so nice I almost felt like I was supposed to be planting again. My tiller needs a little work, my dad says the float is stuck, whatever that means. I figure he knows what he’s talking about so he can fix it for me. That’s what dad’s are for, right? While looking at my tiller I noticed that our disaster of a dog, Hoss, has chewed on the handle used to pull the string to start the tiller. Nothing is safe around here. We put him in the pen and he gets so hyper we can hardly stand it. We let

him out and he chews up everything in sight. On a brighter note, the yard has never been cleaner. I know he will grow out of this chewing faze, someday. Oh, what a happy day that will be. Jeremy had the gall to bring him in the house the other evening. Needless to say that was short lived for Hoss. I was worried that he was going to chew the sheet rock right off the wall. I wouldn’t put it passed him. Could you imagine setting in a room and looking up to see a dog chewing his way through the wall? I know how crazy this sounds but he is one crazy dog. Actually, he is very smart. That’s the hard part. He is so smart and does such crazy things. I think I’ve just described all the teenagers I know. I hope everyone is able to get out and enjoy the weather before is turns off cold. Cold weather is one thing that I don’t look forward too. I get up in the morning and its dark outside then dark outside again by 5 or 6 p.m. that evening. Not looking forward to that at all. No need to dwell on that before we have to. That’s Life in the Country.

While looking at my tiller I noticed that our disaster of a dog, Hoss, has chewed on the handle. Nothing is safe around here.

Heartland Headlines

by Kathy Nickerson

We are so thrilled with the wonderful rain we have been getting. As one neighbor said, “Rain is precious these days.” The crew who puts in our row crops was especially happy to see two inches fall on the newly planted alfalfa. We use that crop to help feed our dairy herd, so it is vital. Another man who appreciates the rain is Steve Gilmore. He oversees the 35-acre garden at Heart-

land. Doc Gilmore is a former veterinarian who had to retire from the profession due to health problems. But, he still loves farm life. You can find him from dawn ‘til dark digging up potatoes, picking green beans, tending cucumber vines, and doing the million other chores associated with such a huge garden. The produce goes straight to our cannery where several ladies pre-

serve it for use in our boarding school and recovery centers. This has been a hard year for the garden. Like everyone else, we’ve seen a sparse crop. Man has come a long way in this world and made great innovations. But no one has ever figured out how to make rain. We continue to rely on God for that, the way we rely on Him for breath, and we are grateful that He is ever faithful.

Citizens of District 2,

I believe Macon County is a great place to live, work and raise a family; a way of life made possible through your strong work ethic, exceptional values, faith and pride in our community and schools. It has been an honor to serve the last four years as your Commissioner, and I ask for your support again on November 6th to continue the work we’ve started. -Jon

RILEYS HOST FFA FUN SHOOT FFA shooters from Brookfield, Bucklin and Marceline held an end of season fun shoot October 13th, at the home of Harve and Bev Riley. A fire was blazing for hog dogs to roast along with s’mores. The rain held off just long enough to finish the shoot. Tying for first with 47 out of 50 were Lane Krawl and Brandon Burris from Marceline. Tied for third with 46 out of 50 were Willie Sherman and Matt Teter from Brookfield. The shoot off was held with Brandon Burris taking the top spot with a 23 out of 25. Second was Lane Krawl with 22 out of 25. Third was Willie Sherman with 23 out of 25 and fourth was Matt Teter with 18 out of 25. It was a fun day for all. They are already looking forward to next year’s shooting season. TRICK OR TREAT FOR UNICEF The Bucklin Christian Church Youth Group is sponsoring Trick or Treat For UNICEF on Sunday afternoon October 28th, from 3:00 pm until about 4:00 pm.

The afternoon was spent reminiscing & visiting. The next reunion will be October 13, 2013.

FELLOWSHIP DINNER The October fellowship dinner at the Bucklin Christian Church was served October 14th, 2012 following morning worship. Host committee was Pearl Miller, Leroy Miller, Darline Briggs, Nellie Hill, Charles and Darla Snyder, Sandy Riddle and Charles and Patsie Hughes.

WELCOME HOME Back in 1962, Judy (Herriman) Niemeier moved away from Bucklin. This graduate of Bucklin R2 spent her next fifty years with a Marceline address. Now Judy has sold her home in the country and is in the process of having a home built just north of town. As manager of the local Prenger’s market she has been commuting from the country every work day rain or shine. As Judy welcomes the short commute to work Bucklin welcomes our former resident home.

SHOEMAKER REUNION Descendants of Charlie & Jessie (Call) Shoemaker met in the Bucklin community building on Sunday, October 14th. Rev. Richard Casady offered thanks for the carry in dinner. Attending were: Richard & Nancy Casady, Meadville; David Walker, Zachary Walker, Blake Jackson, Brookfield; Norma West, Tim & Gloria Chelf, Sam Harman, Muscatine, Ia.; Gerald & Anna (Newton) King, Moberly; Michael Gardner, Pattonsburg; Natisha Jett, Kayden & Korbin Papadopoulos, Dan Shoemaker, Bevier; Gean Gardner, Elmer; Rick Gardner, Atlanta; Reece & Zane Svenson, St. Joseph; Bruce, Jenny & Megan Shoemaker, Gabe & Julie Switzer, Kodie, Khloie & Kaidence Graff, Robert, Cindy, Bryce, Kelsey & Kate Cupp, Molly Ewigman, Marceline; Shelby Shoemaker, Moberly; Tyler Shoemaker, Andrea Nolan, Columbia; Charles & Mary Hulett, John & Shelly Shoemaker, Carl, Jody, Haley & Abbie Herington, Betty Shoemaker, Bob & Lori Davis, Bucklin.

ON THE MEND Olivia Montgomery, young daughter of Pastor Monty and Tonia Montgomery, is dealing with a broken bone in her right foot. The crutches are proving to be a challenge. ODDS ‘N ENDS The Civic Club Citizen’s Appreciation Dinner is October 25th, at the Community Building in the park. They will be serving from 11:30 until about 12:30 with a door prize drawn at noon. There is no charge and all are welcome. Friends, just like magic this occurred: Having two notes before me about the airport last week I mixed them together big time. Carrol Switzer called with his chuckle of the day to let me know I had changed the pilot of the plane his dad took his first and last ride in from Awdrey Carter to Wade Cantwell. It was just like magic; with a few strokes on my computer keyboard it happened. Awdrey Carter convinced Armel Switzer, Carrol’s dad, to take a ride with him and Mr. Cantwell had nothing to do with anything. The worst of it is the fact I have no one else to take the blame. Bummer.

The Life and Times of Jean Emily Clark Ray by Jean Ray Editor’s Note: You can pick up previous papers featuring the Jean Ray story at The Home Press South, 111 N. Rollins St. Macon, MO 63552. It was November the eleventh that Ronnie Lenzini called G.C. To see if he could go hunting and my husband agreed. Raeanne and I decided to go too being it was a nice day even though a bit on the chilly side. We must of walked ten miles because it took up the biggest part of the day. Raeanne and I persevered walking up and down hills, crossing ditches and just trying to keep up. It was pretty rough terrain, lots of brambles and brush to walk through. I was getting pretty tired but kept it to myself, after all we were just tagging along. Finally the lads quit hunting and I was ever so glad and ready for a cup of tea and a sit down. When we visited with the Lenzini’s the hosts would prepare a meal, so I got busy and made spaghetti served with midget sweet pickles and bread and butter and Iced tea. We had worked up a good appetite and there was not a crumb left. After washing the dishes and clearing the table we put on a pot of coffee and out came the cards for a game or two of pitch. I was pretty tired by the time our guests left and made myself ready for bed. G.C. Went across the road to fetch our two buckets of water and put some coal in

the stove and we both settled in for the night. I was awakened with the back ache, it wasn’t too bad just a nagging pain and, I would raise up in bed and G.C. would rub my back and then we both would fall back to sleep. This went on most of the night and my husband said “you are going to the hospital,” I disagreed with him having back pain only. My mum and three sisters never explained anything about childbirth so I really did not know what to expect. Dawn was breaking when the phone rang and it was the Bee-Veer Mine calling to tell G.C. to come to work, this would be his first day at work since returning home and, of course he was unable to go. By this time I was having stronger pains in my back and Ray told me to get ready to go to the hospital and he then called his parents and Goldie and Hubert. Goldie said she wanted to be there when I had my baby and I couldn’t say no after she had been so good to me although, I just wanted G.C. to be there. I was very shy and modest, it was the way I was reared and that was okay. I arrived at the hospital and my nurses were Loretta Twyman and Eileen Thomas and it wasn’t long after I arrived that the pains were pretty bad. Ray stayed with me and when I cried he laughed, that was his way of expressing himself when he was hurting. I was in labor twelve

hours and thought I was going to die, no pain medicine or pain blockage was a choice at that time. Finally I presented G.C. with a seven pound nine once healthy baby boy, we named him Patrick Clark Ray and Doctor Rex Maddox delivered him. I stayed in the hospital about five days and I believe mostly bed rest. There were four beds in my room and another new mother Jonnie Sue Cleaver who gave birth to a girl, she named Elizabeth. We became quite chatty while there and this was the first baby for both of us. The nurses were so kind and they were certainly cut out to work in the nursery, they loved babies. I fed Patrick myself and never gave a thought to anything different, and soon I was on my way to stay at Goldie and Hubert’s house for two weeks. The first two nights he cried all night and I was getting a bit flustered because I did everything I knew to do and still he cried. I thought to myself that’s it, no more and a few years later I changed later my mind.  We only stayed a week and then went home because Ray had a job and I was feeling great. We were so grateful to have work and money coming in at last. Ray started as a truck driver for his brother Hubert and he liked his work which was good because he would rather be farming but, that did not pay the bills. To be Continued…

My Neighbor is Not Bucklin Community Association Warren Buffett plans upcoming Christmas events

By Blake Hurst

In 1975, my senior year in high school, there were five families farming along Route O, a two-lane blacktop that snakes along the section lines for the 10 miles between Tarkio and Westboro, two tiny towns in northwest Missouri. Four of these families are still involved in farming, and three of them have extended family farms, with several generations working in the family business. Each of those families is now headed by a farmer or a retired farmer who has a problem, a problem that is going to get much worse come January 1, 2013. That’s when the present law concerning estate taxes expires. The exemption for exposure to the “death tax” will revert to a $1 million level, and the maximum tax rate will increase to a confiscatory 55 percent. This is hardly a tax targeted at the filthy rich, but rather an unfair levy on almost everybody who has made a lifelong career on the farm. None of the families on my former bus route are rich. No assets compare to the Buffett fortune, or Bill Gates, or even one of those hedge fund managers who preside over Wall Street. These are people who’ve lived simply, saved their money and at this stage in their life have only one goal: to pass their life’s work to their children. In the case of the three families who have descendants actively involved in farming, they want to protect their children’s ability to live a life like they’ve lived. This rather modest goal is threatened by Congress’s failure to act on permanent estate tax reform. Critics of estate tax reform like to point out that very few estates actually pay estate taxes, while arguing at the same time that the federal budget can’t stand the loss of a single dollar of estate tax revenue. They’re wrong on

both counts. Estate taxes raise almost no revenue, generating only $16.9 billion in the last year for which receipts are available. That’s a rounding error in a budget the size of the U.S. government, and a doubling of estate tax revenues would only finance our budget deficit for about a week. As for the estates that owe estate taxes, those estimates don’t take into account the changes in the value of farmland in the past few years. According to local plat maps, my neighbors own from 300 to 1,000 acres. That acreage is small in today’s world and comparable to the average farm size in Missouri. Farm ground in this area has been selling for $7,000 to $10,000 per acre. My neighbors are multi-millionaires, much to their surprise. If these farmers are able to accomplish their goals, none of these millions will ever be spent. Instead, these farms will stay in families for generations. But the person who owns 1,000 acres will be faced with a prospective tax bill of around $5 million. This is in addition to the thousands of dollars in legal and accounting fees these farmers have already spent to ensure their farm is protected and passes to the next generation. No farm in Missouri, or anywhere else, has the wherewithal to stand that kind of financial tsunami. The death tax is poised to end the kind of family farming that is so important to our nation, and we need relief. Farmland prices are high because farm incomes have been good. That’s a wonderful thing for which farmers owe no apology. Every dollar of those increased incomes is taxed by the state and the nation, and every acre of those farms pays property taxes. We’re already paying taxes on our good fortune, as we should. We ought not be taxed again at death.

To The Voters of Macon County

I’m John Meisner, your candidate for Southern Commissioner (District 2) of Macon County. With the exception of seven years in the Navy and National Guard, I’ve lived all my life in Macon County.

I started my working career at twelve years of age, carrying papers for the Chronicle-Herald in Macon. In June of 2009, I retired after a thirty-one year career building roads and waterways, maintenance of heavy equipment and commercial building construction with AECI and Operating Engineers of Kansas City. I now have the time to devote to the job of commissioner and, if elected, will do the job to the best of my ability. My wife Ruth and I have four children; Tonya, Matthew, Jennifer and John C. They also live and work in the Macon area. I would appreciate your vote on November 6th and look forward to using my knowledge and experience to work with the other commissioners for the citizens of Macon county. Thank you, John Meisner Paid for by John Meisner - Bobby Truitt, Treasurer



President Thelma Jones called the October meeting of the BCA to order at 7:00 p m. Secretary Stacey Anders read the minutes of the September meeting and they were approved as read. Treasurer David Jenkins gave the financial report which was accepted as given. Entertainment chairman Bob Davis reported the entertainment for next homecoming is final with the exception of the gospel group confirming their date. It was mentioned the Fairs and Festivals Convention in Columbia will be held the end of January. Anyone

wishing to attend will need to get reservations made before long. Lori Davis and Stacey Anders have the details for the Oct. 21st, fish fry under control. The dinner is to be at the city park with serving from 11:30 till about 1:00. All proceeds will be used for homecoming expenses. Santa is scheduled to come to Bucklin Community Building on November 23rd, with treat for all the children. The lights will be turned on with Christmas carols around the tree. There will be hot cocoa and cookies for all. These plans will be finalized

at the November 19th meeting. Meeting time for November will be 6:00 p m so treat can be bagged. The community Christmas supper will be either December 8th or the 15th depending on availability of the Community Building. Barry Shipley will check for dates available in December. Due to downtown parking space it was decided to have the Christmas supper at the park this year. Dennis Cole asked the group to pass the word about the heat sensing camera purchased recently for the fire department and city

to use. Anyone wishing to have their home inspected for heat loss is urged to call city hall; talk to Bob Walters about an appointment for a free home inspection. Liability insurance for homecoming dates was discussed and tabled until more information is obtained. Also tabled was the request to sponsor a fund raiser for the American Red Cross. Discussion on these two items will be on the agenda Nov. 19th. Thelma entertained a motion to adjourn at 8:20 p m.

The Benefits of Laughter By Mark Underwood Laughing and telling jokes with friends is not just fun, it is good for your brain health. You’ve probably heard the old saying that you should laugh more because laughter is the best medicine. Laughing is a good remedy for many things in life–we all need humor and levity to combat daily stresses. Laughing is not only a great release; it is available to everyone, anywhere, anytime. If you’ve wondered if laughter is good for your health, you’re not alone. Can laughter really have hidden benefits other than simply being an automatic emotional response to seeing or hearing something funny? University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) researchers say yes. They studied people who laugh every day, several times a day to see if there was a connection between laugher and health benefits. What they found was

that on a biological level laughing introduces additional oxygen into the body. Lymph fluids are circulated and increased levels of oxygen boost immune system function. Laughing, in a sense, ‘pumps’ oxygen through vital organs and tissues, which need the oxygen to repair damage, fight infection and keep you feeling healthy. People who laugh on a consistent basis tend to have lower blood pressure than those who laugh occasionally. Many studies have looked at the benefits of laughing and the heart. The UMMC was the first research university to find a link between laugher and lowering heart disease. They found people with heart disease laughed, on average, 40 percent less than people of the same age without heart disease. Born to Laugh Humans have a natural instinct for laughter. Babies usually begin to laugh at four-monthsold. It appears that

laughter may be one of the few universal traits found across human cultures. Laughter is a universal language that humans share. We know that adults are far less likely to laugh than children. In fact, the average child laughs over 300 times a day, while the typical adult only laughs 17 times a day. Even worse is the fact that a majority of adults who report laughing on a daily basis fall into the age range of 18 to 34. Humor and laughter may also have powerful effects on memory, brain health and aging. If the mental effects of laughter are as positive as the physical, then it is time to learn a few new jokes, gather some friends and start improving your brain health the easy way. Make them laugh. Polish those punch lines and improve your brain health.

laughing and help your body feel better while having some fun. According to a Stanford researcher, laughing is like jogging while standing in place. Laughing is actually a physical workout. Remember the last time your stomach hurt from laughing too much. You did a whole abdominal workout that was more fun than crunches and sit-ups any day. One minute of laughter is equal to using a rowing machine for ten minutes. Use these tips to add more laughter in your life: • Find humor in everyday things. • Be a child again– find amusement in the most ordinary things. • Increase your exposure to comedy such as funny books, movies, and live theater. • Make sure you have funny friends. • Take time each day to laugh. • If you hear a joke that makes you laugh, remember it, chances are it will make someone else laugh too!

Laughter is a universal language If you are an adult that doesn’t laugh enough, then it’s time to start

MU Extension Administration Showcases Organizational Model For Organization University of Missouri Extension administration showcased the new organizational model, funding options, staffing needs, programming venues and delivery for a stronger and more flexible organization. Dr. Michael Ouart, Vice Provost and Director, University of Missouri Extension, Columbia, referred to the responsiveness of the changes in a video format on Monday evening, October 8, at the Northeast Region Council meeting held at North Shelby High School, Shelbyville. The three basic parts of the new model showcased University of Missouri Extension moving to a total resource model for regional programs; developing diverse revenue streams—contracts, grants, fees, gifts and the state appropriated funds; and finally, becoming more administratively lean with the number of regions being reduced from eight to seven. Ouart said that approval to release and search for 20 plus positions to fill strategic gaps in programming and administrative coverage would begin immediately. In the realignment of the regional structure, Ouart stated that demographics had created a need for specific needs in programming and staffing. Regional lines have been redrawn to create six rural regions—West Central, East Central, Northwest, Northeast, Southwest and Southeast—and the Urban Region [covering St. Louis and Kansas City]. In all regions programming will continue to support healthy families, communities, agriculture, businesses and citizens in an overall endeavor for the economic wellbeing of the state. In the Northeast Region, counties included are Putnam, Schuyler, Scotland, Clark, Sullivan, Adair,

Knox, Lewis, Linn, Macon, Shelby, Marion, Chariton, Randolph, Monroe, Ralls, Audrain, Pike, Howard and Boone. In the second portion of the showcase, Rhonda Gibler, Associate ViceProvost Management Service, Columbia, displayed the fiscally responsible programming that has foundationally ensured highest-priority programs for greatest public value across the State of Missouri. Gibler referenced the close working relationships with partners as success for strategic generational changes in need for research based programs. Specifically, Gibler addressed ‘fee generation” that analyzed costs, market conditions, and reasonable cost to the program audience. From the fees generated, host costs are covered first with the remainder distributed based on the percentage of costs attributed to the host and the University. Fees, already associated with many Extension offerings, become an important component with the historical sources of funding—federal, state and county appropriations, emphasize Gibler. In the final portion of the showcase, Beverly Coberly, Associate ViceProvost for Programs, Columbia, and Acting Co-Director for Northeast Region, addressed staffing for programming coverage. Coberly outlined the slow, deliberate process Regional Directors and County Program Directors would use om treating and identifying staffing for program coverage across the state. Searches for a plant scientist specialist in Linn County, a Youth Program Assistant in Monroe County and a Regional Director for Northeast Region are being formed. Coberly commended Northeast Region CPD’s and councils for being the first re-

cember 2012. Elected county representatives and faculty attending the meeting were: Jim Ellison [Lewis County], chairman; Debbie Coonrod [Shelby County], secretary; Walter Carr [Linn County], UMESC representative; Knox County—Nancy Douglas and Karisha Devlin; Lewis County— Aaron Schmitz and Zac Erwin; Linn County— Chris Shoemaker; Macon County—Jack Davison and Stan Grant; Marion County—Louis Riggs, Kenny Lovelace, Julia Wilson and Sherry Nelson; Monroe County—Darrin DeOrnellis, Matthew Ensor, Bob Mitchell, and Charles Holland; Pike County— Lucretia Steinhage, and Patty Fisher; Ralls County—Jerry Allen, Laurie Means and Jim Meyers; Randolph County—Kyle Dignan and Tom Fuhrman; Schuyler County—Beverly Talbert and Sharon Bradley; Shelby County—Debbie Coonrod, Paul Wilson, Ralph Coonrod, Dan Uhlmeyer, Jeanna Rutter, Patti Baymiller, Debbie Barrick, Dianna Otto, Max Featured speaker for University of Missouri Extension Northeast Glover, Lesley Daniel Regional Council meeting at North Shelby Schools was Rhonda and Wendy Brumbaugh; Gibler, Vice-Provost Management Service, Columbia.

A Word From The Worship Center Ezekiel 34 Pastor, this is for you V.2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe [be] to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks? V.3. Ye eat the fat, and you clothe yourself with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: [but] ye feed not the flock. V.4 The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up [that which was] broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither

have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them V.5 And they were scattered, because [there is] no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered V.6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek [after them]. V.7 Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD; V.8 [As] I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat

to every beast of the field, because [there was] no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock; V.10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I [am] against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouths... V.11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, [even] I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. Ron Thomason, Pastor of the Worship Center

High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
