A Parachute for the Planet

by Emma Gil

A group of kids and teachers from Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage created a parachute, designed by 12-year-old student Taylor Helmich, as part of the international project Parachutes For the Planet.

Parachutes for the Planet cares about helping the earth and wants to show that kids have power. The purpose of this project is “to raise awareness of people living sustainable lives and affected by climate change.”

According to the project’s website: “Saving the environment is vital to our health, safety and future, and parachutes are a metaphor for this process. Parachutes are safety nets and when collectively displayed in large numbers, they transform into powerful messages of strength, hope and communal determination.”

“In the 1990s, thousands of HIV/AIDS Quilts (blankets) were exhibited in Washington, DC, to bring attention to a disease that was previously not understood. The result of this exhibition was dramatic – people became more aware and governments began to fund research to find a cure.” Using artwork and comments displayed on parachutes, they are hoping to accomplish similar goals for saving the environment. They are going to exhibit 100+ parachutes in Washington D.C. hoping that people will finally notice.

Taylor and teachers, Sharon Bagatell and Katherine Hanson, designed the parachute to have a central image and an outside ring. Taylor created the central image from her own imagination. Many of the children from Dancing Rabbit helped put handprints on the parachute to symbolize that young people care.

I wanted to find out more about Taylor’s artwork so I asked her some questions.

“Why is there a rabbit in the center?”

“I see everything as being carried on the back of nature and I see the Earth as another person or animal. The rabbit was a way of saying how I feel about the Earth as another animal or being. The rabbit symbolizes the Earth and I see the Earth as having a personality. The rabbit also represents where we live – it’s the name of our place and there are lots of rabbits here.”

“Why is there little patches of space?”

“I really like space. I used to be afraid of it but now I’m not. I’ve come to terms with it and now I feel really connected to it.”

“How did you get the job of designer?”

“I’m known for being an artist and teachers Sharon Bagatell and Katherine Hanson thought it would be great to have me help with the project.”

“Why is there a flower on the back of the rabbit?”

“The flower is another representation of our community – the rabbit and the moon in the center of the flower is our logo.”

“Why are the details on the back of the rabbit there?”

“I really like mushrooms and they are sort of magical. There are mushrooms here on our land. The solar panels and the wind turbine show what we have here as an ecological power source.”

The parachute will represent northeast Missouri as part of the large Parachutes for the Planet display in Washington D.C. this summer.

Mizzou 2018 Spring Caravan Set to Make Stop in Memphis

Head University of Missouri football coach Barry Odom is expected to be one of the featured speakers when the Mizzou 208 Spring Caravan stops in Memphis on May 8th.

Spring hasn’t exactly sprung just yet in the state of Missouri, but even so, it’s time for the Mizzou Athletics spring caravan to make an appearance around the Show-Me state.  The Department of Athletics has finalized plans for a four-stop tour this May, with Tiger fans of all ages invited to come out to Mendon,  (May 1st), Memphis, (May 8th), St. Louis, (May 9th) and Kansas City (May 17th).

Headline speakers scheduled for the tour will include Director of Athletics Jim Sterk, Head Football Coach Barry Odom, Head Men’s Basketball Coach Cuonzo Martin and Head Women’s Basketball Coach Robin Pingeton – all three coaches who led their teams to the post-season during the 2017-18 season.  Fans will hear from the VIP contingent and also have a chance to meet and visit in person with the movers and shakers of Mizzou Athletics.

Individual appearances have not been finalized for all four stops, and all headliners may not attend every event, but fans can expect an exciting lineup each night.

Coach Odom has ties to northeast Missouri. The former MU linebacker is married to Tritia Trump, a Kahoka native.

Momentum is building at Mizzou under Sterk, as the Tigers rank 23rd in the latest Learfield Directors’ Cup standings (sixth-best in the SEC) and are coming off a fall and winter season that saw its football team reach a bowl game, and both its men’s and women’s basketball squads reaching their respective NCAA tournaments – marking the first time since 1980-81 that has happened at Mizzou.

The caravan will be in Mendon on May 1st at the Northwestern R-1 School (18475 Highway 11) at 6 p.m.

The caravan will be in Memphis on Tuesday, May 8th at Keith’s Café (470 S. Market St.) at 6 p.m. Tickets for the dinner are $50. To register, call Dr. Harlo Donelson at 660-465-7770 or 660-465-2244.

The following evening, the caravan will be in St. Louis at 6 p.m. at the Biergarten at Anheuser-Busch Brewery.

The Kansas City caravan stop is set for May 17th at 6 p.m. at Chicken N’ Pickle (1761 Burlington, North K.C.).

Scotland County Claims Conference Baseball Crown With 2-1 Win Over Rams

After advancing to the conference championship game with a pair of wins by the 10-run rule, Scotland County was able to lock down the Lewis & Clark crown by the narrowest of margins, defeating Schuyler County 2-1 to claim the title of the league tournament on Saturday in Moberly.

After  blanking Salisbury 10-0 and pounding Paris 12-1, SCR-I had to rally from an early deficit in the championship game to secure the crown.

The Rams jumped on top 1-0 in the first inning courtesy of a leadoff triple by Riley Veatch and a two-out single by Wyatt Homer.

SCR-I stranded a pair of runners on base in both the first and second innings before finally getting on the board in the bottom of the third. The Tigers tied the game courtesy of a pair of Schuyler County errors but again left a pair of runners on base.

The Tigers pulled ahead 2-1 in the bottom of the fourth. Brady Curry reached on an error to start the rally. Singles by Jacob McDaniel and Gage Dodge loaded the bases. Curry scored on a sacrifice fly by Jacob Buford, but for the fourth straight inning, Veatch was able to limited the damage, again stranding a pair of SCR-I runners.

The trend continued in the fifth when Branton Burrus and Curry had back-to-back two out singles but were left stranded on base.

In the sixth, Dodge led off with a double and moved to third on a one-out hit BY Fromm. But the Rams again got out of trouble, turning a double play to end the scoring threat.

Fortunately all of the missed scoring opportunities did not come back to haunt SCR-I. Dodge held the Rams scoreless over his final five innings of work before Fromm recorded the save, pitching a perfect seventh inning to secure the 2-1 win. Dodge allowed one run on seven hits and no walks while striking out 10.

Both Tigers runs off of Veatch were unearned as the Rams committed five errors on the day.

McDaniel went 2-3 at the plate while Dodge was 2-4. Curry went 1-3 with a run scored.

The Tigers improved to 5-2 on the year with the victory.

SCR-I Students Attend MOFB Youth Leadership Day in Jefferson City

Scotland County R-I was represented at the Missouri Farm Bureau Youth Leadership Day by (L to R) Khloe Hamlin, Nova Cline, Abby Blessing, Jared Dunn, Katelyn Talbert, Hunter Frederick and Vocational Agriculture Teacher Waltedda Blessing.

Four hundred thirty-seven high school students and chaperons from around the state attended the 24th Missouri Farm Bureau Youth Leadership Day April 12. They met with legislators at the State Capitol and participated in an afternoon session at the MOFB Center. Youth Leadership Day is sponsored by the MOFB Promotion and Education Program.

To start off the day, students were bused to the Capitol where they visited with legislators to learn about the progress on bills that affect agriculture and rural Missourians. Although the House was not in session, students were able to meet with some state representatives and tour the building. The Senate, however, was in session and several groups were introduced on the Senate floor. Many students met with their senators in their offices and side chambers.

After lunch at the MOFB Center, the group was welcomed by Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst. Farm Bureau Ambassadors Jacqueline Janorschke, St. Joseph, and Charlie Ebbesmeyer, Armstrong, talked about their experiences in the ambassador program.

The featured speaker was Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft, who talked about the importance of elections. “Our government is designed to be a government by the people for the people,” he said. “Every election matters. An election turnout of 10 or 11 percent is horrible. We need you. We need your voice.”

Ashcroft told students increasing voter participation begins with awareness that elections are important. “A larger percentage of our population says ‘It doesn’t matter’ and don’t vote. It does matter.” But he reminded them not to rely completely on mass and social media, but to be active as individuals. “Shake hands with those running for office, learn about them. We need you to be consequential, to be active. Not because someone tells you to do something, but because you want to do it and make things better.”

Students attending from Scotland County included Khloe Hamlin, Nova Cline, Abby Blessing, Jared Dunn, Katelyn Talbert, Hunter Frederick. They were  accompanied by Vocational Agriculture Teacher Waltedda Blessing.

She traveled all over the world documenting the Air Force mission thru her camera. After her retirement in 2010 Stacey began another mission. She was moved to document, through her photos, veterans of wars past. Stacey was quoted saying, “This has been healing and cathartic for me.” It has been equally healing and cathartic for veterans. Pearsall’s work illustrating the war zone is on display at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. Indian Minute was given by Regent Kice. She read a poem by Luther Standing Bear of the Rosebud Sioux. Constitution Minute was red by Verlee Dauma. Minutes of the March meeting were read by Recording Secretary, Rhonda Davis.
