The Easter Bunny was also at the Easter Egg Hunt helping children find eggs, play games and even do a little hugging and some sidewalk chalk art.

METH LAB RECOVERED IN MACON COUNTY Macon County Sheriff Robert Dawson reports that his office has recovered a meth lab that was dumped roadside, and wants to warn of a new danger for area highway cleanup crews that comes in the form of toxic, sometimes deadly, drug residue. The toxic residue is found on paraphernalia used to make “mobile” methamphetamine labs, said Sheriff Robert Dawson. Mobile meth labs are operated out of vehicles and then discarded along roadways, Dawson said. “With the prevalence of mobile meth labs and the popularity of road cleanups, I want crews to be aware and be safe,” Dawson said. Dawson said the “mobile labs” are becoming increasingly popular statewide. “Contents for a lab are contained in a car because it’s easy and mobile and hard for law enforcement to track,” Dawson said. “Manufacturers will mix it up in their vehicles. They want to dispose of the evidence and get rid of it.” Several local groups schedule their cleanup crews to work local along the roadways in the spring. The sheriff said volunteers need to stay clear of these types of items: • Empty bottles attached to a rubber hose. • The smell of ammonia coming from a piece of refuse. • Coffee filters stained red or containing a white powder residue. • Garbage bags with cat litter, often referred to as “death bags” because they

New Life Quality Carpet Cleaning L.L.C.

contain deadly gasses. • Corroded propane tanks. • Empty or used alcohol products. • Numerous empty cold medicine and diet pill bottles or blister packs. • Unused matches without striker

The method of making the drug is accomplished by pouring all the ingredients into a two-liter soda bottle or other container, Dawson said. Meth labs of the past that operated out of homes and garages required

plates. “I’m hoping that this raises the awareness of what to look for, and I hope we can avoid any tragedies. These cleanups are a good thing,” Dawson said. Dawson said making meth in a vehicle in “one pot” — often in pop bottles — is the easiest, but most dangerous way of making meth. “Just last fall three suspects had a lab blow up in their car in Macon County, causing serious burns to all three.”

hundreds of cold tablets, a lot of fuel, household cleaning supplies and a room large enough to set up the lab. When road cleanup crews come in contact with the pop bottles and other devices used to make meth, they can absorb the chemicals through their skin and are at risk of inhaling them, Dawson said.

News From The Illinois Bend Area The Illinois Bend Community Church has many exciting things to share with the community. The first church â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cook Bookâ&#x20AC;? is getting closer to be ready to print. The church voted for the best suited title and it will be called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recipes from Around the Bendâ&#x20AC;? and as many submitted titles will be incorporated into various food headings. The last Wednesday special evening worship time dedicated the newly rebuilt church Organ and Lessley. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Terrific Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;? morning Chapel continues to meet weekly and many from the community are finding special joy and peace in that fellowship. The parking lot of the church has been over filled and so the church was faced with a joyful situation. The Terrific Tuesday Chapel fellowship purchased some adjoining ground for an addition to

the parking lot and gifted it to the church. The Legacy Group has met and viewed old home movie clips of past families of the prior Illinois Bend Disciples of Christ Christian Church plus are planning an Ice Cream event.

Governor Jay Nixon touted job creation for the


proposed Flanagan south crude oil pipeline project in a conference call with media Thursday, March 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, we have an-

other clear opportunity to create construction jobs, support local communities and boost Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy independence with the Flanagan South pipeline,â&#x20AC;?

Nixon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enbridge US is one of North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest pipeline companies. Earlier this week, Enbridge announced that it will move forward with the construction of a new pipeline that will run from Flanning, Illinois to Cushing Okalahoma.â&#x20AC;? That 600 miles pipeline will enter these 11 Missouri Counties: Lewis, Marion, Shelby, Macon, Randolph, Chariton, Saline, Lafayette, Johnson, Cass, and Bates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This project will create good paying construction jobs for Missouri workers and provide a significant boost to local economies,â&#x20AC;? Nixon said. Nixon projected the project would create â&#x20AC;&#x153;thousands of jobsâ&#x20AC;? statewide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t build it one piece at a time. There will be project folks throughout the region. It will add to the work base very quickly,â&#x20AC;? Nixon said. When further questioned about from where people would be hired, Nixon said it would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;Missouri region contractors.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enbridge is not a company that has many contractors. How it (the project)will be divided up and the sites of it are being worked on right now. Clearly their intention is to hire local-based contractors with excellent skilled craftsmen. This has to be built very smart and very well,â&#x20AC;? Nixon said. Missouri will serve as a pass-through state for the crude oil to be transported. Nixon said it would come from the northern part of the United States and Alberta Canada, including from some oil sands. After

it gets to Cushing, Oklahoma, it will go to refineries in Texas and Louisiana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the refining assets in the ShowMe State,â&#x20AC;? Nixon said. Nixon admitted some of the oil might be exported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transportation costs will be smaller (transporting from nearby states), there will be more oil available and quite frankly the oil on the open market are all three clear downward pressures on the price of gas,â&#x20AC;? Nixon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only will it create construction jobs, but it will help to ensure these reliable fuel supplies for generations to come so we are not relying on the whims of folks in other parts of the world as to what we pay for gas and fuel at the pump,â&#x20AC;? Nixon said. Enbridge not only gave the go-ahead on the project, they also upsized it from original projections. Instead of the original 30-inch pipe diameter, Enbridge is now saying 36inch diameter pipes, for a larger capacity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; initially some 585,000 barrels of oil a day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and bumping the cost from $1.9 to $2.8 billion dollars. Nixon said Enbridge and state officials would be out holding informational meetings in the communities near the pipeline in the coming weeks, and necessary permits would be secured. Construction will not start until 2013 and expected to be completed by 2014. The construction is expected to generally follow a current Spearhead Oil pipeline built in 1952 by the Sinclair Oil Company, now owned by Enbridge.

Local Youth Develop Leadership At State 4-H Teen Conference

John Ancell of the Macon Easy Riders 4-H club, Brook McEwen also of the Macon Easy Riders 4-H club, Laura Smith of the Atlanta Home Pioneer 4-H club and Levi Walker of the Bevier Buckaroos 4-H club was among the record setting 294 delegates attending the annual State 4-H Teen Conference, March 24-25, at the University of Missouri in Columbia. The delegates, ages 1113, attended workshops centered around three of the 4-H program’s four essential elements: belonging, generosity and mastery of new skills. The fourth is independence, and for many this was the first overnight event away from home.

Whitney Agency, Inc.

The conference is lead by Missouri’s State 4-H Council, a group of older teens elected annually by their peers, who work for months to plan and implement this leadership conference. “Teen Conference develops leadership on both fronts,” said Tracie Moore, Macon County 4-H Youth Development Specialist for MU Extension. “The older teens probably learn as much about leadership from this program development experience than those they are teaching.” For more information about 4-H, which is open to all youth ages 8-18, visit or contact your local MU Extension Center at 660-385-2173.

Blonde But Blunt

Brashear Elementary Students Partake In K’Nex Projects


Busy! Busy! Busy! This weeks weather has been exceptionally wonderful with the exception of a few showers here and there, it was a great time to be outside enjoying the sun. I enjoyed smelling the fresh cut grass, the bbq’s, hearing the kids laughing and playing as well as the adults gathering to visit in their lawn chairs. I just love Spring! I talked with my father the other day to let him know that his first greatgrandchild had arrived, as he’s in Florida for the winter. I got tickled when I asked for an arrival time home, he said “probably another month or so”. LOL Well I’m no meteorologist but the weather has been awesome and I can’t even imagine sitting around in the heat of Florida for another month when you can enjoy the fresh air here at home. People traveling south for the winter are some very lucky individuals. They have the best of both worlds. Summer here and warm weather in the winter there. Some have homes in both states, others rent and some just live in their rv’s. I’m not really sure that I could live in my camper for six months. I might go stir crazy. I like to sit and put my feet up every now and again and stretch out. Just not enough room, especially if you are sharing the 26’ space with someone. Oh I’m sure that if I was going to spend six months in my camper I’d probably have a bigger one and a very nice one with a tv and cable. LOL Mine’s just a small unit, but it works for me. I like to go camping in it as much as possible, spending time with family and friends, four wheeler riding, sitting beside the campfire, telling stories or just visiting. Some of

JEFFCOAT my best memories have been from camping. The wilderness, although I could do without snakes, is one of my favorite. I love the mud and fishing, like to just sit with my cane pole and bobber and wait for that small little bluegill. I like the farm, camping with friends in a somewhat disarray of a wagon train, sometimes we have to arrange them according to wind not to disturb the awnings. The fair, however last year was definitely a scorcher, hope it isn’t that hot this year, hardly went to the fair grounds and the night I did, what happened? It rained, the wind blew and the kids ran back to the campgrounds to put up the awning, just a tad late, so had to replace that. Ugh! But all in all, its a great time to spend teaching others new tricks or old ones, whichever the project calls for. I firmly believe in the phrase “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Using that duct tape or binder twine is okay with me and some of the people I camp with do just that, whatever we can find to “rig it”, works just fine. To sum it up I guess I just wanted to wish you the best of spring, get out and enjoy yourselves, even if its just to sit on the porch and smell the flowers. Just don’t leave the doors open, I had three wasps in the house this afternoon. Keep It Kool, Bec

First grade students at Brashear Elementary proudly display their K’Nex projects in a recent study of the physics of simple machines. Students enjoy doing research in the areas of science and social studies. They have made crystal snowflakes, their own version of China pets while studying seeds and Chinese dragons to learn about the Chinese New Year. Other projects included Canada geese and paper airplanes to support learning about migration and flight, habitats, bird houses and beaver lodges to study animal adaptations, and other study projects. Betty Stephens teaches the weekly enrichment class. Students are: front row: Landon Fisher, Kale Feeney and Avery Zentz; back row: Aden Shahan, Aiden Withrow, Ryan Farris and Alex Houghton.


Pastor’s Corner We are in Holy Week. It is the final week of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. This last Sunday was Palm Sunday, the day we remember Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem riding on the back of a colt, the offspring of a donkey. The people who witnessed his entry spread their cloaks and leafy branches on the road before him as if he really was the promised king of the Jews. This is why the day is called Palm Sunday. On Thursday we mark Jesus’ betrayal at the hands of one of his followers, Judas Iscariot. Thursday evening, Friday and Saturday we remember the days Jesus spent in the tomb. Then, of course, Sunday is Easter Sunday, or Resurrection Sunday. This day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, his being raise from the dead. It is this act of Jesus being raised from the dead is what sets the Christian religion apart from many other religions more than anything else. It is faith that this is true of Jesus and Jesus alone that brings hope and joy to so many. It is what makes the impossible possible. For us these acts of God through Jesus Christ are the ultimate expression of God’s love for us. The

Bobby Lene of La Plata received recognition from the Missouri Show-Me Big Bucks Club’s Deer Classic.


PASTOR THOMAS death and resurrection of Jesus makes it possible for anyone to begin a new life after committing the worst sin. Any life can be made new, can be redeemed through in Jesus Christ, by allowing Jesus to change us to make us whole again. If you need this for your life, then the first step is to believe in Jesus .

Freedom in the month of February, 2012. Janie is daughter of Greg and Judy Williams of La Plata. After serving 7 ½ yeas of active duty with the U.S. Navy, Janie


returned to gain a degree at the University of Missouri and remained in the active Navy reserve. She also spent much time as a volunteer at the Campus Veterans Center helping veterans transitioning to civilian life by finding housing, financial aid, scheduling or meeting needs for mental and physical issues. Upon completion of her collegiate work, Miss Williams returned to active duty and volunteered for duty that has placed her in harm’s way. Miss Williams is home for a brief period of R&R after which she will return to duty in Afghanistan. Her role in Navy Intelligence prohibits her from explaining her duties but it is safe to say she works directly with multiple military branches of this and other countries. We can also assume that the task force she is a part of it vital to the removal of terrorist forces which threaten our freedom.
