The third annual Newark Missouri Old Fashioned Festival will be held June 14-16. Newark Mayor Meg Glover



said the event was started over three years ago when community members were talking about having an event

that would attract people to the town. Several 4-H organizations and others needed a place to show animals in a judged show and have the practice of showing before state competitions so they decided they would also have open animals shows. According to Glover, Newark was the site of the first county fair in Missouri and they wanted to bring that tradition back to the town. The first Newark fair was organized in 1858 as an agricultural fair. The original fairgrounds was located about a half mile west of Newark and was used from 1858 until 1893, when a fire destroy everything except for the two-story bandstand. The bandstand was later moved to the town square in Newark

where a single level of the original still stands. Glover says the Festival offers something for everyone at any age. Entertainment, trail rides, games, petting zoo, vendors, community wide yard sales, antique tractor show and many contests. The contests include best homemade pies, brownies, bread, and jelly or jams. Photography, quilting, crafts, woodworking, embroidery, entomology and geology contests will also be featured. The items will be on display until 4 p.m on June 15. More information can be found at the website www. Everyone is invited to come to Newark and enjoy the festivities.

Highland students sponsor Head Start Program Sequestration Cuts veteran fisherman

Douglass Community Head Start LaGrange

Professional Fisherman Clay Dyer was the motivational speaker at the Fishing For Freedom Event held June 1 and 2. Pictured are: Clay Dyer and HES students Luke and Jolie Geisendorfer, Kenzie Rutledge, Sierra Schroder, J.T. McDermott.

Highland Fifth grade students sponsored a team in the Fishing For Freedom event. Pictured are: (l-r) Roger Wood, Michael Estright, and HES students, J.T. McDermott, Monica Henke, Sierra Schroder, Jolie Geisendorfer, Kenzie Rutledge.

Fifth grade students and parents from Highland Elementary School attended the Fishing for Freedom Banquet at the Oakley Lindsay Center in Quincy, Illinois on June 1. The students had sponsored a boater by giving donations instead of a gift exchange to each other during Christmas. This year’s motivational speaker was professional fisherman, Clay Dyer. He ascended his way to the top of the FLW Tour, competing on the bass fishing tour from 2002 through 2010. Dyer did that despite the fact he was born without legs, no left arm and only part of a right arm. He doesn’t use any special equipment to fish. He doesn’t see himself as being different from anyone else who heads out to compete in tournaments. Dyer’s best tournament on the circuit was when he finished in sixth place. He casts his line by tucking the rod under his jaw and whipping it around with a left to right twist. When he lands a fish, he reels it in by placing the rod under his chin. He can tie knots with his tongue and uses his teeth to unhook fish and change lures. As Dyer stated to the Veterans, “We’re all faced with adversity and obstacles.” Dyer said, “When I think about our


servicemen and servicewomen, I think that if it wasn’t for their sacrifice and fighting for our freedom every day, that we couldn’t do what we do. There are many who paid the ultimate sacrifice. In some ways, we all sacrifice something. Life is about sacrificing something to live your dream.” Dyer can’t imagine doing anything else with his life. “Fishing is a business that God wanted me in.” Clay Dyer autographed his book, The View Down Here Is Just Fine, which will be placed in a fifth grade classroom. Each student who attended received a commemorative Fishing for Freedom coin and bracelet. On June 2 more than 140 veterans from 19 different states participated in this year’s bass and catfish tournament. Because of rising water on the Mississippi River, anglers went to tristate lakes to fish. At noon, the National Anthem and weigh-in began. The fifth grade’s sponsored boater was Roger Wood, and veteran, Michael Estright, from Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. The team won second place with a weight of 12 pounds and four ounces.

Federal budget cuts, under sequestration, have forced Douglass Community Services to eliminate 18 staff positions and services to 77 children in its Early Head Start and Head Start programs. The job cut represents 14% of Head Start workforce. The fall enrollment will require a 14% drop of currently funded children throughout the eight-county service area. Staff and families who will be affected by the cuts were notified earlier this week. These cuts are a response to automatic cuts to federal services, known as sequestration that took effect March 1. The Office of Head Start directed Head Start providers to plan for a 5.27% reduction of remaining funds for this fiscal year. The changes took effect June 1. At DCS Head Start, several cost cutting measures went into effect in January, which allowed the program to continue business as usual until the end of the 2013 school year. “We were committed to limiting the disruption in services for children enrolled for the 2013 school year,” said Linda Bleything, Head Start Director. Head Start and Early Head Start provide a full range of child development services for low-income children ages birth to five, providing not only kindergarten readiness, but also services to ensure children are getting their health, dental, nutrition and socialization needs met. DCS Head Start provides services in Lewis, Macon, Marion, Monroe, Pike, Ralls, Randolph, and Shelby Counties. Because of the cuts, Lewis County will lose its preschool center-based services, but will receive home based child development and family services for 10 children and their families. Head Start staff will make home visits to enrolled families once a week, providing the opportunity for parents to learn how to present learning activities for their children. The families will come together twice a month for socialization activities. A public meeting will be held June 21 at the Lewis County Head Start Center, 114 N. Main, LaGrange, MO. at 5:00 pm for members of the Lewis County community who are interested in more details. Marion County will see a loss of eight positions for center-based Early Head Start infants and tod-

dlers in Hannibal. “This was an extremely difficult decision to make because with the waiting list for EHS in Marion County we could open three more classrooms and still not be able to meet the need for infant and toddler care in Hannibal. These parents will be without the childcare that allows them to work or attend school.”, said Ms. Bleything. The Hannibal Head Start center and Palmyra Head Start center will not be making any changes at this time. Macon County will see a reduction of services for 18 preschool children. Moberly Head Start will reduce preschool enrollment by 18 children. In Pike County, the Head Start program is offered in Bowling Green and Louisiana. The Head Start program will be reduced by 40 center based preschoolers in Pike County. The introduction of home-based services in Pike County will continue to provide services for 20 of those children. Pike County will also see a reduction in enrollment of eight EHS infants and toddlers. Ralls, Monroe, and Shelby Counties will not experience any cuts in enrollment at this time. “We regret how these reductions will impact our communities” explained Dave Dexheimer, Executive Director at Douglass. “Not only will this add to unemployment through the loss of staff, it may mean parents will also have to give up work because they cannot afford child care. While we know that cuts must be made in the federal budget, it is unfortunate that across the board cuts to all federal programs has taken place. It is our hope that Congress will soon lay out the budget for the upcoming year that might replace some of these reductions to programs such as Head Start which contribute, not only to the economic growth, but provide a valuable “head start” to so many pre-schoolers, thus enabling them to further contribute to the future growth of our economy, our culture and our nation.” Douglass Community Services, Inc. currently employs approximately 140 people and manages a budget of almost six million dollars in the eight county area served. The sequestration cuts to Head Start amounts to almost $250,000.

Missouri State Highway Patrol superintendent, announces the Patrol’s participation in a national campaign in which marine law enforcement officers from across the country coordinate special patrols to detect and apprehend intoxicated operators during the weekend of June 28 through 30. Missouri boat operators found to have a blood alcohol content of .08% will be arrested for boating while intoxicated. A vessel operator with a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit runs a significantly increased risk of being involved in a boating crash.

This postcard from August 23 1907 was sent to Miss Vera Mae Gnuse, grandmother of Barbara Warning Bright, who supplied the postcard. The picture on the front of the postcard is captioned, Evening Scene on the Wyaconda River, LaGrange, Mo. A semi-truck carrying a load of logs overturned on Route F, two miles south of Route E in Lewis County around 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 6. No injuries were reported. The Lewis County Sheriff ’s Department, Canton Fire Department and the Lewis County Ambulance are responded to the scene. No further information was immediately available. (Photo by Rita Cox)

Letter to Editor One day not long ago, on my way to town for a copy of the Whig, collection of the fire dept. mail and a short visit to the local information center, Davis Hardware, Inc. store, I had just crossed the sewer lagoon branch at the bottom of Vern’s hill southbound on K. All of a sudden I was about to encounter a Transformer, as in the movie / TV series of Wild Wild West, this Green mass of rubber, steel and dangerous fluids had just arrived at the crest of the hill north bound full speed, plus warp one, on it’s way to eliminate me and my little GMC pick up. If on the execution of the oncoming transformation I would have been no more than a hood ornament in size. This mass coming at me was broke in the middle, had eight rubber tires, taller than the giants of Bible times, two great stainless steel tanks, breathing black smoke, and connected to a contraption in the rear. This rear contraption, by it self, was more formidable than anything that Secret Service Agents West and partner Artemus had ever encountered.

I thank God the shoulders at that point on K was wide enough to accommodate me and my GMC. Both lanes of highway K was just the right size to accommodate the out of control zig and zag of the monster. After my fear had subsided I muttered a prayer of thanksgiving that my mother taught me, I thanked God that I was at the zig when the monster was at the zag. I also recalled my father’s wisdom& his words, “Son, give the big boys plenty of room and share your space.” The monster finally came to rest upright at the sewer lagoon culvert on K only for an instant, than the black smoke rose above the mass and it was on its way again to demonstrate its power and size. The only evidence of the encounter is the black marks left on K and a very grateful senior citizen. I also feel blessed that you are reading this report as advisement and not as an obit. Beware of the monsters on the road. William C Steffen LaBelle, Mo.

BACKWARD GLANCES From the pages of early Lewis County newspapers 25 Years Ago The Press-News Journal May 26, 1988 Two segments of county history ended themselves in a historical way. Two cornerstones at the LaBelle school and one from the Lewistown school were opened Tuesday and the contents shared with crowds of students, attending their last full day ever at the schools, alone with a number of adults. The contents of the 1914 box included a Bible, LaBelle High school Booster newspaper from March 1912, a poster promoting an early Chautauqua, Eastern Star club book and other interesting items. Virgil Zuspann, principal of the schools said in1938 there were 62 schools in the county and said “there may only be one school in the county if this exodus from rural areas doesn’t stop. The Lewistown cornerstone was opened by Farrell VanMeter, board member of the original school. Contents included histories of Lewistown and several of the churches, papers from several clubs and organizations, a 1936 quarter and other items. The Canton Baseball Tigers took the district championship and are now in the final 16 teams in the state. 45 Years Ago The Press-News Journal May 16, 1968 The Canton Press-News and the Lewis County Journal have been sold to Mr. and Mrs. David Steinbeck by Mr. and Mrs. Les Dimmitt.

HE moved to Lewis County in 1854 with his parents. His father died in 1855 leaving his mother in charge of a family of five children, of whom he was the oldest. The responsibility of the support of the family and the management of the farm held heavily on him. Mr. McRoberts was the representative of Lewis County in the Legislature at Jefferson City at different periods aggregating 14 years. He was a member of the board of trustees of Culver-Stockton College for 40 years and its president for 30 years. Forest Grove Cemetery was founded in 1878 and according to records, there have been 1,724 burials therein to the present date. The first lot sold as of record appears to be that of Elmo Rae Agee, aged 3 years, who died Dec. 23, 1878, though bodies had been removed from other cemeteries for reburial in Forest Grove Cemetery. Because of the heavy rains and bad roads a comparatively small crowd attended the eighth graduation exercises held at Monticello. Twenty of the 42 graduates were present and a large number of teachers were also in attendance. 85 Years Ago The Lewis County Journal May 31, 1928 Missess Christine Zossel of Canton, Addie Belle Couch of LaBelle and Lone Drecher of LaGrange, succeeded in winning the honors of their class in Canton, LaBelle and Ten Mile High Schools, and are awarded a free scholarship in Chillicothe Business College.

FOR THE RECORD CANTON 2012 Annual Water Quality Report




(Consumer Confidence Report) This report is intended to provide you with important information about your drinking water and the efforts made to provide safe drinking water.

Attencion! Este informe contiene información muy importante. Tradúscalo o prequntele a alguien que lo entienda bien. [Translated: This report contains very important information. Translate or ask someone who understands this very well.]

What is the source of my water? The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and groundwater wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Our water comes from the following source(s): Source Name WELL # 1 WELL # 2


Source Water Assessment: The Department of Natural Resources conducted a source water assessment to determine the susceptibility of our water source to potential contaminants. This process involved the establishment of source water area delineations for each well or surface water intake and then a contaminant inventory was performed within those delineated areas to assess potential threats to each source. Assessment maps and summary information sheets are available on the internet at To access the maps for your water system you will need the State-assigned identification code, which is printed at the top of this report. The Source Water Inventory Project maps and information sheets provide a foundation upon which a more comprehensive source water protection plan can be developed.

Why are there contaminants in my water? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Contaminants that may be present in source water include: A. Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. B. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. C. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. D. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. E. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the Department of Natural Resources prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Department of Health regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.

Is our water system meeting other rules that govern our operations? The Missouri Department of Natural Resources regulates our water system and requires us to test our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. Our system has been assigned the identification number MO2010134 for the purposes of tracking our test results. Last year, we tested for a variety of contaminants. The detectable results of these tests are on the following pages of this report. Any violations of state requirements or standards will be further explained later in this report.

How might I become actively involved? If you would like to observe the decision-making process that affect drinking water quality or if you have any further questions about your drinking water report, please call us at 660-216-5100 to inquire about scheduled meetings or contact persons.

Do I need to take any special precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunocompromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800426-4791).

Special Lead and Copper Notice: If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. CANTON is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791) or at




Contaminants Report Definitions: MCLG: Maximum Contaminant Level Goal, or the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. MCL: Maximum Contaminant Level, or the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. SMCL. Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level, or the secondary standards that are non-enforceable guidelines for contaminants and may cause cosmetic effects (such as skin or tooth discoloration) or aesthetic effects (such as taste, odor or color) in drinking water. EPA recommends these standards but does not require water systems to comply AL: Action Level, or the concentration of a contaminant which, when exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow.. TT: Treatment Technique, or a required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water. 90th percentile: For lead and Copper testing. 10% of test results are above this level and 90% are below this level.

WILLIAM SCHREFFLER William (Bill) Duane Schreffler passed away Sunday, June 2. He was born on August 6, 1941 in Spickard, Missouri to Leo and Iva Schreffler. In his younger years his family moved around a lot, and his family finally settled in Canton, Mo. He graduated from Canton High School in 1959 and enlisted in the U.S. Navy, and made this his career. On September 13, 1960 he married his high school sweetheart, Joyce Kreeger. To this union 3 children were born; Brian Earl, Darryl Wayne and Karyn Rae. Bill retired from the Navy in 1979 and returned to Missouri where he worked as an electronics repairman, then opened his own shop. He retired from there, and worked at Wal-Mart for a short time before he retired for the last time. Everyone teased him that since he retired 3 times he flunked the “act of retiring”. Bill was a man who never met a stranger, and would talk everyone’s ear off. He was an avid reader and had a great memory for everything he read. He was a fantastic Husband, Dad and Grandpa. He was preceded in death by his parents Leo and Iva Schreffler, his sister Virginia Bernstein, and his son Brian. He is survived by his wife Joyce of Springfield, Mo., his son Darryl and wife Angie of Ozark, Mo., his daughter Karyn and husband Allen of Springfield, Mo., his sister Ina and her husband Jack of Apache, OK; and his grandchildren Kelli, Alex, Ashley, Owen and Reagan. A celebration of Bill’s life occurred at his daughter, Karyn’s home in Springfield on June 9. Services were June 10. The family is asking that in lieu of flowers that donations be made to the American Heart Association or to the Convoy of Hope and Salvation Army for the Oklahoma tornado victims.
