Tigers Continue Drive Towards State Playoffs By Beating Rams

A first half of missed opportunities almost came back to bite the Scotland County Tigers before the defense once again bailed out the team in a hard fought 12-8 victory over Schuyler County to set up next week's district championship tilt against Knox County.

The Tigers took the opening kickoff and moved the ball down field behind tailback Joel Myers. Faced with a fourth down coach Brent Bondurant went for it. The gutsy call paid off as Curtis Cochran connected with Kiel Fogle for a big gain across the middle.

Myers broke the next play up the middle for a big gain. As he was going down at the end of the run the ball popped loose and Schuyler recovered the fumble at the five-yard line.

The turnover ended the scoring chance but the SCR-I defense still had the Rams pinned deep in enemy territory. Schuyler County escaped safety territory and looked ready to get the offense rolling. But the momentum did not stay with the Rams long. Clint Cottrell continued his all-conference caliber season at safety with another interception. The Tigers took over at the 45-yard line with 6:34 to play in the first period.

The two teams traded defensive stops with SCR-I coming out on the better end of the punting game, taking over at the 28-yard line.

A key pass interference call against the Rams kept the Tigers scoring opportunity alive. But the yellow flags evened out with a couple key calls against SCR-I backing the Tigers up past the original line of scrimmage.

A pass from Cochran to Jared Shelley got some of that yardage back before the Tigers ran a reverse to Chase Moore for another big chunk of yardage.

The Tigers still faced fourth down and five yards to go at the nine-yard line. The Rams pass defense appeared to have the play stopped but Cochran scrambled away from the defenders and was able to pick up the first down, being stopped by a trio of tacklers just a yard short of the end zone. Myers took the next handoff in for the one-yard TD. The extra point kick failed leaving Scotland County ahead 6-0.

After the scoring drive both teams traded punts before Schuyler County mounted its one drive of the first half. It didn't last long enough as the Tigers defense held on fourth and one to get the ball back one final time in the first half.

The Tigers looked like they might run out the clock on the first half before Myers broke an 11-yard run. Shelley followed that with a 12-yard gain to quickly put the team in scoring position. Scotland County kept the ball on the ground and with 1:20 left in the second period Myers punched it in from one-yard out. The two-point attempt by the Tigers failed, leaving the team with only a 12-0 lead heading into the locker room.

The second half, particularly the third quarter, looked like a different game for both teams. After racking up some good rushing totals in the first period, SCR-I had the ball for just three offensive plays in the entire third period.

Schuyler County on the other hand managed only 77 total yards of offense in the first half. They backed themselves up with a penalty coming out of the locker room giving them the opening kickoff at the 20-yard line.

The Rams marched down the field eating up 51 yards before a fumble of their own ended the scoring chance. Aaron Dale recovered the loose ball at the 29-yard line.

SCR-I gave the ball back four plays later on the punt. The Rams ate up the third period from here with a long drive before scoring on a one-yard TD run on the first play of the fourth period. A successful two-point conversion had the Rams within striking distance at 12-8.

Scotland County managed a single first down before being forced to punt once again. A nice kick put the Rams at the 20-yard line with 7:55 to play in the contest.

Less than 30 seconds later the ball was at midfield and the Rams were building up steam. The next 30 yards were nearly as easy as the clock read 6:47 when the Rams reached the 20-yard line.

But on third down and one, the SCR-I defense got into the backfield and tackled the Rams runner for a loss. The next play was another defensive stop that got the Tigers the ball back with only five minutes to burn off the clock.

But Schuyler County got a huge break when the Tigers fumbled at the 30-yard line with just over three minutes left in the game.

The Tigers defense then made its biggest stop of the year on the Rams final possession. The defensive lot got good pressure on the Rams quarterback preventing Schuyler County from completing a pass on four attempts as the Tigers took over the ball with 2:18 left in the game.

The offense picked up a big first down as the Rams used up their timeouts allowing SCR-I to run out the clock.

After only 77 yards in the first half Schuyler County opened up in the second half to finish with 278 yards. But the Tigers made the key defensive plays when the team needed them the most. Myers led the way with 11 tackles, including three for losses. Dale and Moore each had nine stops in the contest while Tim Robinson finished with eight tackles and Brett Masden pitched in with seven.

Myers continued his 100-yard game streak, racking up 131 yards and two TDs in the game. Shelley ran for 22 yards and Eric Long added 34. Cochran rushed for 12 yards and threw for 70. He hit six of 10 pass attempts with Fogle accounting for half the receptions. The team did have eight penalties for 85 yards.

Scotland County improved to 5-4 on the season, improving the team's conference record to 4-2.

FSA Reminds Farmers of Haying, Grazing Regulations on  CRP Acreage

hay

CRP (Conservation Reserve Program) participants may release their CRP acreage for haying or grazing.  A payment reduction of 25% of the annual rental payment times the number of acres actually hayed or grazed will be assessed.  The assessment may be paid in advance or deducted from the annual CRP payment.

Before haying or grazing CRP, you must sign a request at the FSA (Farm Service Agency) office and obtain a modified conservation plan from NRCS.

You may hay or graze the acreage one out of every three years.  For example, if field #3 was released for grazing in 2013, it may not be hayed or grazed again until 2016.

Haying/grazing CRP does not substitute for required Mid-Contract Management (burning, discing, or spraying), if applicable to your contract.

Eligible acreage may be hayed or grazed between July 16 and September 30, 2016.  Hay must be removed from CRP acreage by October 30. You may not hay and graze the same acreage.

Any cover destroyed or damaged as a result of the haying/grazing will be re-established at the CRP participant’s expense. CRP hayed/grazed without being released is subject to a penalty or cancelation of CRP contract.

For more information or to release CRP acreage for haying or grazing, please contact your county Farm Service Agency office.

The phone number for the Clark County office is (660) 727-3364. The office is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Scotland County office at Memphis is open Monday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The phone number is (660) 465-8517.

Bullet Stop to Host Hartford Fest 2016 June 3-4

Jim and Doreen Madison will host Hartford Fest 2016 this weekend, June 3rd and 4th in Hartford, MO.  This is a family event that has it all; games and rides for kids, shooting contests, live music both nights, fireworks and tons more!

Jim started having events like this years ago.  Jim had his first event in 1989 and called it “Junk Sale”.  Junk Sale consisted of thousands of used gun related items that Jim would pick up from other gun dealers.  Jim would travel in an old Chevy Suburban around the Midwest buying items for future sales.  When the old Suburban was full, he headed home.  The original sales were held in the basement of his first store.  Customers had to navigate tricky wooden stairs to view Jim’s finds.  In later years, these sales grew and when he built his Hartford gun shop, he had the same ideas in mind; build a large building and have nice large sales.

Originally called Hartford Days, Jim would have three to five every year.  Although these were a big hit, this also proved to be a lot of work to organize.  So after Goobers Hartford Store was opened, a decision was made to combine both stores into one big sale event known as Hartford Fest.

Hartford Fest is held on both properties and has something for everyone; good deals on guns, free cookouts, horse rides and yes, lots of give-a-ways.  Jim says this is a great way to thank his customers for the many years of support.

This year, Anthony Imperato, owner of Henry Repeating Arms Company, will be on hand to meet and greet.  Jim and Anthony will give out thousands of dollars in free Henry rifles.  Also, this year, the highway patrol and the National Rifle Association will have displays.

Twenty-eight years ago, Jim and Doreen cooked up this sale.  Please come and join the fun.  Jim has one hint as to parking; this huge event requires a large area to park so on the west side of the property will be a grass field.  Turn by the dumpster and look for the green gates!

Preparation is Key to Successful Blood Donation

blood drive today

The American Red Cross is holding a blood drive at Scotland County Hospital from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7th.

Healthy individuals are needed every day to maintain an adequate blood supply for patients in need.  Once a donor has made the commitment to give blood, it is important to take a few simple steps to prepare and help ensure a good donation experience.

The Red Cross recommends getting a good night’s sleep, eating a good breakfast or lunch, drinking extra water and fluids to help replace the volume you will donate and eating iron-rich foods to boost your iron level.

Donating blood is an easy way to help others and only takes about an hour of your time.  The Red Cross encourages donors to give blood every time they are eligible; every 56 days for whole blood donations and every 112 days for double red cell donations.

To donate blood, simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information.  All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients.  A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in.  Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission n some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood.  High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

The American Red Cross provides shelter, food and clothing to victims of disasters; supplies more than 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; ministers international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.  The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.  For more information, please visit redcross.org or join our blog at blog.redcross.org.
