Berkowitz, Munzlinger Square Off In Debate For House Seat

Regardless of how voters in the First District cast their ballots, the region will have an experienced legislator to serve northeast Missouri in Jefferson City. Incumbent Brian Munzlinger, R-Lewistown and former state representative Sam Berkowitz, D-Memphis, squared off in a televised debate October 20th in Canton to try to help voters decide who is the best candidate come November 2nd.

The forum, which was televised live on WGEM television of Quincy, allowed both candidates to address questions from a media panel consisting of Doug Wilson of the Quincy Herald-Whig, Dan Steinbeck of the Canton Press News Journal and Matt Schmidt of KHQA television.

Education took center stage for both men as funding issues have been one of the bigger campaign platforms for both candidates.

Berkowitz stated that education has always been his top priority. He pointed to the $600 million shortfall in fully funding the states education formula, adding that 3,000 school employees had been laid off in education including 1,500 certified teachers.

I will never ever cut the schools of this area like they have been cut the last couple of years, Berkowitz said.

That kind of rings hollow, Munzlinger retorted. The last year my opponent was in the legislature seven of our schools up here lost funding. Actually, we have given education more money each year than they have gotten the year before. I dont see any cuts there.

Munzlinger pointed out that the foundation is outdated, having been in use for 13 years even though the creator had envisioned its use for only eight years.

Its time we rolled up our sleeves and went to work on this, Munzlinger said. Its a broken formula. However if there are any changes, we need to be sure and protect the funding for our rural schools.

He pointed out that in each of his four years in Jefferson City that education funding has increased, including a growth of $143 million this year, which was $10 million more than Governor Bob Holden had in his original budget plan.

Berkowitz countered, pointing out that the foundation formula was $600 million from being fully funded.

What the Republicans did this year was to fill in the gap from 2003, Berkowitz said. The people in this district lost $700,000, in all the counties, $700,000, in things that were cut by the Republicans in 2003. We are $115 million still behind in the foundation formula this year.

The education funding issue boiled over into a later question regarding tax increases.

Asked when they would vote for a tax increase, Munzlinger stated that he had not voted for a tax increase since he had been in Jefferson City. He added that he would not do so until we run out of cutting waste, fraud and abuse, that we have in our system, then it might be necessary, but not until then.

Berkowitz responded, stating that lack of funding for education in the past few years had forced school districts to pass tax levy increases.

Actually Brian you have voted for a tax increase, he said. Last year when you voted to cut $700,000 from this area and $600 million statewide in the last two years, you shifted the burden of the taxes from the legislature to the local taxpayers.

Berkowitz stated that last year 114 school districts voted on tax levy increases.

If thats not a tax increase, nothing is, Berkowitz said. And you voted on it.

Munzlinger countered, noting that it was withholdings by Governor Holden that caused the funding shortages for schools that ultimately pushed the districts to pursue local tax levy increases.

That was 3,000 teachers salaries that he withheld, Munzlinger said.

Berkowitz pointed to the transition to lump sum budgeting under the Republicans control of the legislature as a problem for education funding and the budget problems overall.

If Im elected Id stand on my desk to make sure this didnt happen again, Berkowitz said. Lump sum budgeting in essence took every legislator out of the budget process. We used to go over the budget line item by line item.

Berkowitz blamed the lawmakers Republican leadership for changing this process in 2003, giving the budget process over instead to the department heads.

That in effect, is giving the budget to the bureaucrats, he said. That is a total diminished leadership. We in this district were diminished because of that.

Munzlinger responded, stating that Berkowitz knew what really happened as he was working in Jefferson City when Governor Holden sent out a memo to all the department heads encouraging them not to work with the legislature on the budget plan.

Other areas where the two candidates differed included support for Amendment #3, which would end the diversion of funding meant for transportation into the states general revenue fund.

Berkowitz pointed out his history of supporting transportation funding for highways 136 and 61, but noted the proposed law change does have a Catch 22. He indicated the law change could create a $1 billion revenue shortfall because of the transportation funds that will no longer find their way to the general revenue fund.

There is the possibility that some of that money that went to education, social services and other departments may not be available, Berkowitz said. So whats the next step when they say that it wont raise your taxes? Well if the money is not available, then what do you do? You either do something about taxes, or you cut.

Munzlinger responded, stating he had not heard any concerns about a budget shortfall, not since Governor Holden was playing Chicken Little two years ago, and actually this last year when he withheld the reserve funds from education.

The Republican candidate said he was in favor of the amendment, noting it would make MoDOT more accountable, something voters have wanted since Proposition B failed to increase funding to the state highway department.

The two men also differed in opinion regarding a new governor.

Munzlinger stated any new governor would be a breath of fresh air since Governor Holden refused to work with the legislature. He noted that both Matt Blunt and Claire McCaskill have campaigned as candidates that will make bipartisan efforts with lawmakers to solve the states problems.

Ive had the governors people in my office and they told me one thing on Thursday night and on Monday morning it was exactly opposite.

Berkowitz defended Governor Holden, pointing out his efforts to help make the Highway 61 project a priority to receive funding for four lanes.

If it wasnt for Governor Holden, the highway out here that we see running through this county and soon to be in Clark County, would not have been done, Berkowitz said. So lets give credit, where credit is due.

Both candidates agreed on a number of key issues, including the high priority of transportation, prescription drug prices, expanding ethanol and bio-diesel use programs, and the war on methamphetamine.

Berkowitz closed by saying Im the representative that improved your road and bridges. I made your nursing homes safer. I helped find operating funds for the Jim Sears Northeast Technical Center that will help to bring you more jobs here. I had eight forums in the four years I was here on every subject you can think of. Im the representative that brought Jefferson City closer to the First District. Id like to continue that effort.

Munzlinger closed by stating that when my opponent was in Jeff City he voted 23 times to raise $1.2 billion in taxes, and that reaches into your pocket. What I want to do, is simply what Ive done Ive represented the values of our rural area. I want to be sent back to Jefferson City to represent the people of the First District and carry on what weve started - that is making the government more accountable.

Downing House Museum Complex News

The Museum Complex has had a very busy summer. We have been fortunate to have some great volunteers who have worked this summer providing tours and updating and cleaning the buildings and displays. Volunteers who have given their time are: June Kice, Gwendolyn Lohmann, AnnaLynn Kirkpatrick, Lynnette Dyer, Melissa Miller, Natalie Miller, Holly Harris, Marie Ebeling, Sandra Ebeling, Janet Hamilton, Elaine Forrester, Diana Koontz, Ruth Ann Carnes, Julie Clapp, Rhonda McBee, and the US Bank employees. We are still gathering aluminum cans to raise funds for the upkeep of our grounds. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to drop those off at the museum and to Elaine Forrester for gathering cans from several local businesses and community friends. Angel Arnold has kindly offered to take the cans with Iowa markings to the recycle center in Bloomfield, Iowa.

A summer thunderstorm brought down some very large tree branches, so the old maple on the front lawn of the Downing House received a much needed trim. Joel Kapfer donated the use of his power lift for Robert Waddell to clean and trim all of the trees in the front lawn. We have also began to refurbish the Rose Garden. It is a work in progress, but we hope to plant new roses in the near future. The local Boy Scout group worked at putting new sand into the brick sidewalk in the garden to maintain it.

The front of the Museum Complex is now illuminated with new outside lighting. Lamp posts and LED lights light the front of the Downing House and the Boyer House. This was made possible by memorial gifts given in memory of Florine Forrester.

The Carriage House is being furnished and is beginning to take shape. We have several tools, blacksmith items, and farm items displayed. New blinds have been hung in the Memphis Depot to help prevent sun damage to items that are found inside on the west side of the historic building.

The Museum Complex will be open on Friday and Saturday during the Scotland County Antique Fair from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  We will not be charging admission, but will ask for free will donations from patrons. We will be displaying several antique quilts in the Downing House music room and parlor on the first floor of the museum. The gift shop will be open with our coverlets, rugs, and museum memorabilia available to purchase. We are once again hosting the Lawn Party. Lunch will be served by the Rutledge School Restoration Society. Serving will begin as soon as the parade concludes. The menu includes pulled pork, cheesy potatoes, green beans, salads and desserts. The Heritage Band will be playing on the lawn for entertainment.

If you haven’t been to the museum complex lately, please come by for lunch and tour our wonderful facility, see our new carriage house and view our beautiful quilts. We have some wonderful local history to share.

Birding Season

Birding season is quieting down, although I am still enjoying my baby blues and the busy hummingbirds. Most of my sugar consumption goes to hummingbirds. They are hungry.

If you are planning to set up a nice bird feeding station, now would be a good time to measure it off and kill the grass, plant shrubs and get it mulched before winter.  Pick out the feeders that you want to get placed and get ready for an exciting winter of bird feeding.

It is a well known fact that I live in the area that Tom Horn was born and lived for a time.  As I have written, he left home when he was 13 and never looked back. By the time he had been gone from home for a year,  he was on Beaver Head Creek, in the heart of Indian country and could speak Mexican fairly well.  His feelings were so different and his life was so different from the way it was when he left home that it seemed to Tom that he had been on the stage line all his life.

During some of his travels, he was hired as a scout and interpreter.  He would be drawing $100 a month. He and the guy he worked with even had the occasion to speak to interpret for Geronimo. He also worked helping return Indians to the reservations, helping them get blankets, rations, and other needed items.

Horn’s next job was in 1879 helping furnish beef to the Indians for $150 for one month.  The Indians he was dealing with were the Chiricahua. San Carlos was near the Gila River and so was Camp Thomas where Horn did some of his dealings. At this time of turmoil, was the beginning of the Indian War. He continued to translate and guide officers through this Indian war.  Early on in 1881, the Indians and Mexicans were always in turmoil. Horn was very intelligent and knew how to deal with both Mexicans and Indians. More to come later.

Continue mixing up your sugar water 1/4 c. sugar to one cup water, keep it fresh, and no need to fill the feeder completely up. No need to add red coloring, and no need to boil. I would not recommend using anything but granulated sugar, organic raw sugar will not sweeten the same and will also spoil faster.  Until next time, good bird watching.

SCR-I Board of Education Approves Tax Rate Increase

money grad

After eight years of deficit budgets, the school board increased the tax levy to $3.50,  well below the $3.69 voter-approved ceiling.

The Scotland County R-I School District ended an eight-year pattern of deficit spending and is looking to a bump in next year’s tax levy to help start a new trend.

The SCR-I Board of Education met August 18th and unanimously approved a tax rate increase for the 2016-17 school year. The board set the 2016 levy rate at $3.50, an increase from $3.3928 in 2015.

The hike is expected to generate an additional $110,000 in revenue that Superintendent Ryan Bergeson indicated will be utilized in helping to meet maintenance and facility costs.

“Basically we felt like we were in a position where we really need the added revenue to help us to continue to provide quality educational opportunities for our kids,” said Bergeson.

The revenue increase represents what amounts to a 1.7% budget increase overall for the district, which forecasted expenditures of $6.328 million in 2016-17.

The district has benefited from positive balances, which allowed it to weather nearly a decade of deficit spending.

But faced with growing maintenance needs as well as facility upgrades, Bergeson said the board decided to move forward with the tax rate increase, while choosing to still remain well below the voter approved tax rate ceiling.

More than a decade ago, local voters approved a $3.69 tax rate ceiling, a rate the board of education has never reached, instead offering voluntary rollbacks every year since the ceiling was established.

“I would estimate that these levy rollbacks have saved taxpayers around $2 million over the past several years,” said Bergeson.

The state also plays a role in the levy rate. The Hancock Amendment sets limits on the rates at which tax revenues can increase. For school districts, that specifically correlates with local assessed valuations, meaning if new construction or other upgrades cause significant increases in the total assessed valuation of the tax district, the district’s tax rate ceiling is lowered to try to prevent revenue windfalls that weren’t intended.

In 2016, the adjusted tax rate ceiling for SCR-I is $3.5949, meaning the board took a voluntary reduction of more than nine cents when establishing the current tax rate.

In 2015 the SCR-I tax rate went down to $3.3829 to account for a nearly $9 million increase in the district’s assessed valuation coming through the addition of the former Gorin R-III district. The tax rate in 2014 was $3.43.

The Gorin annexation also brought in some additional revenue in the form of the district’s existing cash balances, which helped SCR-I break the deficit budget trend as well.

“I think we were going to be close without it, but it definitely was a big boost that helped us meet some of our transportation needs,” said Bergeson.

With the Gorin balance transfer, SCR-I closed the 2015-16 fiscal year with $6,802,127.68 in revenue. With expenditures of $6,394,274.93, the district had a surplus year of $407,852.75.

Bergeson noted that a big chuck of that surplus has already been put into play with the recent purchase of three new buses and a fourth used bus.

“With a total of 18 buses in the fleet, we have a constant need for upgrading,” said Bergeson. “This one-time revenue increase from Gorin helped us address that in a significant fashion.”

The superintendent indicated that the district spent nearly $300,000 on the bus upgrades, a point of emphasis for the district, which has replaced 10 of the oldest buses in the past several years.

The remainder of last year’s surplus, combined with the added tax revenue from the levy increase will be used to meet the district’s day-to-day expenses with an eye toward looming upkeep and repairs as well as facility upgrades.

“The heating and air conditioning system at the elementary school is one issue we will likely be looking at,” said Bergeson. “Obviously we also have facility needs, and we’ll be considering all of our options on how to provide more classroom space and on how to house our early childhood programs.”

BOND ISSUE

In other business, the board addressed the August election results. Board President, Trinity Davis, appointed a Facilities Committee to continue working to address facility needs for the school district.  Davis appointed George Koontz, Jamie Triplett, herself, Ryan Bergeson, Erin Tallman, and Kirk Stott to the committee.  The first meeting was scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on Monday, August 22.

BLEACHERS

The board voted 6-0 to purchase the bleachers for the softball and baseball fields at a total cost to the district of $5,000.  The total cost of the bleachers was $10,000 and the Scotland County R-1 Booster Club agreed to contribute $5,000 for the upgrade.

BOARD MEETING

The September Board Meeting is set for Thursday, September 8, 2016 in the Elementary Art Room.

EXECUTIVE SESSION

The board approved Tia Hamilton as Junior High Cheerleading Coach and Shelby McAfee as Volunteer Cheer Coach.

“Making the best better” for generations of Missouri 4-H Club members, Dr. Larry Wiggins of Memphis was inducted into the Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame on Aug. 13 at State Fair Community College in Sedalia.

He was among 54 inductees from 40 counties establishing a legacy totaling 1,594 years of service to 4-H. More than 400 family members and friends attended the 10th annual event.

Dr. Larry Wiggins has dedicated more than 40 years of service to Scotland County 4-H. In the early 1970’s, he and his family were charter members of the Jolly Jacks and Jills 4-H Club, which remains one of the largest clubs in the county today.

Dr. Wiggins was the veterinary science project leader from the early 1970’s to the 1990’s, and held many of his project meetings during his small animal clinic, providing an incredible opportunity for 4-H members to witness a variety of animal science lessons. Today, he still welcomes 4-H and FFA members to visit his clinic for learning opportunities and job shadowing experiences.

The Missouri 4-H Foundation recognizes individuals who have created a legacy of service to 4-H by honoring them with membership in the Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame, said Rachel Augustine, associate director of development for the Missouri 4-H Foundation.

“These volunteers have played a vital role in helping our youth develop essential life skills that will empower them to become strong leaders in the 21st-century workforce,” she said. “We are proud to honor their legacy of service to Missouri 4-H.”

The annual event is sponsored by FCS Financial and the Missouri State Fair in partnership with the Missouri 4-H Foundation.

“Our University of Missouri Extension 4-H youth faculty and staff work in partnership with our volunteers to see they have the support needed to empower youth to succeed as future leaders,” said Dr. Ina Metzger Linville, program director, MU Extension 4-H Center for Youth Development. “Dedicated faculty and staff, committed volunteers, and spirited 4-H’ers will continue to learn and grow together to help our youth and communities thrive.”

For more than 65 years, the Missouri 4-H Foundation has been managing funds for the MU Extension 4-H Youth Development Program, providing higher education scholarships and recognizing 4-H volunteers. MU Extension 4-H is a community of more than 260,000 youths from across Missouri learning leadership, citizenship and life skills.

Scotland County Genealogical Society Holds August Meeting

The Scotland County Genealogical Society met Monday, August 8th with eight members present plus one new member.  Darlene Johnston called the meeting to order.

The secretary gave her report.  There wasn’t a treasurer’s report to give.

Under new business, Alisa Kigar inquired if we would like Dr. Heather Martin, a new member of SCH staff, to present a program.  Everyone agreed this sounded like a good program and she will be presenting at the September meeting.

There was no old business to discuss and President Johnston closed the meeting so the program could begin.

Bonnie Hayes gave the program this month on getting your DNA testing done through Ancestry.  We learned that 50% of our DNA comes from both our parents and that 50% of their DNA comes from each of their parents, and so on.  When getting back the results of your DNA, you will have a chart showing how different segments of DNA might have been passed down to each generation.  Siblings can have different segments than what you have.  Genetic inheritance is random and sibling’s ethnicity results are a great example of this.

Several members of the Genealogy Society have done the DNA testing so curiosity getting the best of me; I decided to give it a try to see what is in my blood line.  I know there is Irish and English so in a few weeks, I will know more.  If anyone would like more information about this, they can go in on Ancestry.com or ask a member of the Genealogy Society for help.

This was a good program and many thanks to Bonnie Hayes for having this program.

Following the program, refreshments were served by Darlene Johnston.  Thanks to Darlene.

The Genealogical Society would like to invite anyone to come to their meetings which are held once a month on the second Monday of each month at 1:30 p.m.  The meetings are held in the Genealogy Building across from the Memphis Fire Station.

Lady Tigers Prevail 3-1 in Extra Innings to Win Season Opener

Julie Long puts down the sacrifice bunt during the Lady Tigers’ season opener at Putnam County on August 22nd. SCR-I picked up the 3-1 victory.

Julie Long puts down the sacrifice bunt during the Lady Tigers’ season opener at Putnam County on August 22nd. SCR-I picked up the 3-1 victory.

It took a little longer than normal, but the Scotland County softball squad opened the 2016 season in the win column with a 3-1 victory at Putnam County that took 10 innings to decide.

SCR-I jumped on top 1-0 in the top of the first inning. With one out, Stevi See crushed a double to left field which would have been out of most fields. The junior catcher came in to score on a two-out hit by Ashleigh Creek.

The lone run looked like it might hold up as Creek was perfect through two plus innings before a two-out hit and a walk created a scare in the bottom of the third. But she was able to coax a comebacker out of Kori Hornaday to end the threat.

Unfortunately, the SCR-I offense went completely quiet after the opening frame. Kendall Ingersoll retired six straight batters before See launched a deep flyball to center field that was misplayed for a two base error.

But the Lady Midgets’ pitcher worked out of the jam, going on to retire seven straight batters.

SCR-I’s best threat came in the sixth inning when Abi Feeney reached on an error. She stole second base and moved to third when the throw skipped into centerfield. But See ripped a liner down the third base line that was snagged by Jordan Holland at the bag to easily double off the runner and end the threat.

That proved costly, as Putnam County finally got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the sixth. Kennedy Childers led off with a double. Following an SCR-I error that allowed Sara Webb to reach, Putnam County used a sacrifice bunt followed by an RBI groundout by Riley Rouse to knot the score at 1-1.

SCR-I was unable to take advantage of a leadoff walk to Kaylyn Anders in the eight, and then left two runners in scoring position in the ninth inning after a base hit by See and an error that allowed Creek to reach base.

After a leadoff single in the bottom of the seventh, Creek retired nine straight batters.

SCR-I finally broke through in the 10th inning. Anders walked to start the rally. Katie Feeney followed with a base hit. Abi Feeney reached on an error to load the bases with one out. See delivered a sacrifice fly to leftfield. Anders tagged up and beat the throw home. An errant throw to third trying to get Katie Feeney, allowed the freshman to come all the way in to push the lead to 3-1.

Creek worked around a leadoff error to retire the heart of the Putnam County order to secure the win.

See led the offense, going 2-4 with a run scored and an RBI. Creek was 1-4 with an RBI.

Creek picked up the win, allowing one unearned run in 10 innings of work. She allowed just four hits and walked one while striking out six.
