3rd Annual Midwest Antique Fest & Flea Market Returning to Kirksville

 The ultimate hunting grounds for antiques, repurposed finds, artisan creations and vintage and new items alike.

Meet Brittany and Lindsey, the organizers behind our very own Midwest Antique Fest & Flea Market!

Three years ago, two friends with an addiction to flea markets, roadside trinkets, and tattered treasures decided to take matters into their own hands and bring a spot where you can find everything you never knew you needed, to the heart of northeast Missouri.

On September 21st and 22nd, Lindsey West and Brittany Kelsey, will once again be making the Midwest Antique Fest & Flea market a reality when the show makes its 3rd annual return to Kirksville.

Not only has the duo taken on the feat of organizing such an affair, the friends are also busy coordinating their families, farm life and careers.

In her spare time, Kelsey, the mom of one, is busy helping her husband farm, as well as helping manage MFA Feed as Product Manager. She is also heavily involved in the local cattleman’s association and other various ag-related organizations.

When she’s not wrangling her four small children, you can find West traveling with her family on the professional rodeo circuit, helping on the farm, and working full time as Creative Design Specialist for Cargill Animal Nutrition. She is also a Consultant for Rodan & Fields Dermatology, as well as a small hobby breeder of Goldendoodles.

As you can see, multi-tasking and coordinating chaos come second nature to these two. Their aim with the flea market is to start a tradition of a great show with a well-balanced mix of high quality merchandise, friendly and knowledgeable vendors, and a fun-filled, family-friendly atmosphere.

Brittany and Lindsey have been busy for the past three years scouting out a wide variety of vendors at some of the best antique shows and flea markets across the Midwest to provide a great place to find antiques, collectibles & flea market finds. With over 75 unique vendors (and growing), hands-on demos, live music and great food, there is sure to be something for everyone!

See what some of the attendees and vendors had to say…

“So excited to get this in Northeast Missouri! Can’t wait to set up.” – Cherry Grove Antiques – Downing, MO

“Loved the show! So many neat finds, great food, and lovely people. Drove almost 2 hours to attend. Will definitely be going back!” – K. Haden

“This was my first year attending. The show had a wide variety of booths of all types, delicious food, and I really enjoyed looking. I also thought it was very well-organized and executed! Clearly there was a lot of planning behind the scenes and a tremendous amount of organization to pull it off. I can’t wait for the next one!” – C. Stanton

“Worth the drive! Had lots of variety and good eats, too!” – D. Page

“As a vendor, I was impressed by how well we were taken care of by the show staff. I will be back next year and I encourage others to set up there as a vendor.” – S. Robinson

Collectors of vintage items, repurposed treasures, antiques and artisan goods, will want to be sure to check out the two-day event September 21 and 22 in Kirksville at the NEMO Fairgrounds. Follow the ladies and the Midwest Antique Fest & Flea Market on Facebook for details and hit them up this fall to see for yourself why their event was listed in Flea Market Style Magazine as one of the TOP Fleas and Vintage Markets in the U.S.

Small Business Administration Making Funds Available to Non-farm Businesses Impacted by Drought

Small nonfarm businesses in many Missouri counties are now eligible to apply for low‑interest federal disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. These loans offset economic losses because of reduced revenues caused by drought that occurred in the following primary counties, announced Director Tanya N. Garfield of SBA’s Disaster Field Operations Center-West.

Declaration Number 15631 includes Scotland, Adair, Buchanan, Howard, Putnam, and Schuyler counties as the primary impacted areas, with neighboring counties: Andrew, Boone, Chariton, Clark, Clinton, Cooper, DeKalb, Knox, Linn, Macon, Mercer, Platte, Randolph, Saline and Sullivan in Missouri; Appanoose, Davis, Van Buren and Wayne in Iowa; and Atchison and Doniphan in Kansas also eligible for the assistance.

The eligibility stems from the ongoing drought
incident, dating back to May 29th.

Declaration Number 15638 covers Andrew, Caldwell, Carroll, Chariton, Clinton, Daviess, DeKalb, Gentry, Grundy, Harrison, Linn, Livingston, Macon, Mercer, Nodaway, Randolph, Ray, Saline and Sullivan counties with
neighboring counties Adair, Atchison, Audrain, Boone, Buchanan, Clay, Cooper, Holt, Howard, Jackson, Knox, Lafayette, Monroe, Pettis, Platte, Putnam, Shelby and Worth in Missouri; Decatur, Page, Ringgold, Taylor and Wayne in Iowa; and Doniphan in Kansas
Incident Type: Drought, also covered. It dates back to July 10th.

“SBA eligibility covers both the economic impacts on businesses dependent on farmers and ranchers that have suffered agricultural production losses caused by the disasters and businesses directly impacted by the disasters,” Garfield said.

Small nonfarm businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private nonprofit organizations of any size may qualify for Economic Injury Disaster Loans of up to $2 million to help meet financial obligations and operating expenses which could have been met had the disasters not occurred.

“Eligibility for these loans is based on the financial impact of the disasters only and not on any actual property damage. These loans have an interest rate of 3.61 percent for businesses and 2.5 percent for private nonprofit organizations, a maximum term of 30 years, and are available to small businesses and most private nonprofits without the financial ability to offset the adverse impact without hardship,” Garfield said.

By law, SBA makes economic injury available when the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture designates an agricultural disaster. The Secretary declared these disasters on August 1, 2018.

Businesses primarily engaged in farming or ranching are not eligible for SBA disaster assistance. Agricultural enterprises should contact the Farm Services Agency about the U.S. Department of Agriculture assistance made available by the Secretary’s declaration. However, in drought disasters nurseries are eligible for SBA disaster assistance.

Applicants may apply online, receive additional disaster assistance information and download applications at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela. Applicants may also call SBA’s Customer Service Center at (800) 659-2955 or email disastercustomerservice@sba.gov for more information on SBA disaster assistance. Individuals who are deaf or hard‑of‑hearing may call (800) 877-8339. Completed applications should be mailed to U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX  76155.

SC Sheriff’s Office  Promotes 2018 Drunk-Driving Awareness Enforcement Campaign

Scotland County’s Chief Deputy officer, Bryan Whitney, recently received a $700.00 grant to be used to participate in the 2018 Drunk-Driving Awareness Enforcement Campaign.

Each year, Americans mark the end of summer with the Labor Day holiday weekend, a time to celebrate the hard work and many accomplishments of our country. Friends and families eagerly await pool parties, backyard barbecues, and other occasions to enjoy the last days of summer sunshine. Sadly, the Labor Day holiday has also become one of the deadliest, with drunk drivers endangering themselves and others on their way home from these holiday festivities. This year, the Scotland County Sheriff’s Department is partnering with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to get drunk drivers off the roads and help save lives. The high-visibility national enforcement campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, runs from August 17 through September 3, 2018. During this period, local law enforcement will show zero tolerance for drunk driving. Increased State and national messages about the dangers of driving impaired, coupled with enforcement and increased officers on the road, aim to drastically reduce drunk driving on our nation’s roadways.

Sadly, the statistics prove that we have a lot of work to do to put an end to drunk driving. According to NHTSA, 10,497 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes in 2016. On average, 10,000 people were killed each year from 2012 to 2016-one person killed every 50 minutes in 2016. That’s the equivalent of 20 jumbo jets crashing each year, with no survivors. This is why Scotland County is working with NHTSA to remind drivers that drunk driving is not only illegal, it is a matter of life and death. As you head out to Labor Day festivities, remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

Over the 2016 Labor Day holiday period (6 p.m. September 2 – 5:59 a.m. September 6), there were 433 crash fatalities nationwide. Of the fatal crashes, more than one-third (36%) involved drivers who were drunk (.08+ blood alcohol concentration [BAC]), and one-fourth (25%) involved drivers who were driving with a BAC almost twice the legal limit (.15+ BAC). Age is a particularly risky factor: Among the drivers between the ages of 18 and 34 who were killed in crashes over the Labor Day holiday period in 2016, 47 percent of those fatalities involved drunk drivers with BACs of .08 or higher.

“We need our community to understand: It’s up to them to make the smart decision to drive sober—Labor Day, and every day,” said Whitney. “Drunk driving is a huge problem in our country, and the numbers are rising, little by little. This isn’t about a ticketing campaign. This is about a campaign to get the message out that drunk driving is illegal and it takes lives. Help us put an end to this senseless behavior,” he said.

There is a small, silver Lining: During the 2016 Labor Day holiday, 36 percent of fatalities in traffic crashes involved a drunk driver, which was one of the lowest percentages over the five-year period from 2012 to 2016. “We still have a lot of work to do,” cautions Whitney. “The trend for the Labor Day holiday is in a positive direction, but our goal is to have zero fatalities, always,” he said.

Whitney and NHTSA are reminding citizens of the many resources available to get them home safely. “Drunk driving is not acceptable behavior,” said Whitney. “It is essential to plan a sober ride home before you ever leave for the party. That’s why, during the Labor Day holiday, we will make zero exceptions for drunk driving. There are just no excuses,” he said. Whitney recommends these safe alternatives to drinking and driving:

  • Remember that it is never okay to drink and drive. Even if you’ve had only one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride sharing service to get home safely.
  • Download NHTSA’s SaferRide mobile app, available on Google Play for Android devices:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhtsa.SaferRide&hl=en and Apple’s iTunes Store for iOS devices:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/saferride/id950774008?mt=8  SaferRide allows users to call a taxi or a predetermined friend, and identifies the user’s location so he or she can be picked up.

  • Use your community’s sober ride program.
  • If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact local law enforcement.
  • Have a friend who is about to drink and drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get your friend home safely.

Local Voter Trends Lineup With State Totals, Except for Senate Race

Scotland County voters lined up with the rest of the state in nearly every aspect of the August 7th Primary Election, with the lone exception being the Missouri District 18 State Senate race where the overwhelming local favorite, Craig Redmon went down to defeat.

In Scotland County, 28.55% of registered voters took part in the primary election, compared to a 33.5% turnout statewide. Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft reported unofficial totals, showing  that roughly 4.1 million registered voters cast a ballot August 7th. Turnout in the previous two primary elections, in August 2014 and August 2016 – was about 25 percent according to the Secretary of State.

“While more voters went to the polls yesterday, there are still many who did not,” Ashcroft said. “I urge all eligible Missourians to participate in our democratic process and vote. If you’re not registered, there’s time to do so before the November general election — the deadline to register is October 10, 2018. Contact your local election authority or visit www.sos.mo.gov to register, and most importantly, make your voice heard on Election Day.”

The driving force behind the uptick in participation appeared to be Proposition A issue. Statewide nearly 1.4 million votes were cast for the question asking if right-to-work legislation, approved in 2017 by state lawmakers, should be enacted.

While the majority of Scotland County voters said no to Prop A, the 57% margin of defeat was well below the state level, where over two thirds were against the issue, with 937,241 no votes to 452,075 yes votes.

The decision was not popular with everyone, including the Missouri Chamber of Commerce.

“Using a roughly $20 million war chest, union bosses have blocked Missourians from having the freedom to decide whether or not they join a union and pay dues,” said Daniel P. Mehan, President and CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry. “As our state became a national battleground over worker freedom, millions of union dollars poured into Missouri to persuade voters. These out-of-state groups sent money to Missouri because they were fearful of losing out if Missourians had the power to stop their paychecks from being siphoned to pad union coffers and play politics.”

The chamber leader noted that most states have already passed worker freedom laws and pointed to statistics from the Bureau of Economic Analysis to show that freedom to work states are outperforming their non-freedom to work counterparts.

“The numbers don’t lie,” he stated. “Missouri will continue to fall behind until we pass freedom to work into law. Unfortunately, the unions used their massive cash advantage to drown out our positive economic message. They spread misinformation and lies, which misled many Missourians about what Proposition A would do for them and for our state’s economy.”

In Senate District 18, the lone issue local voters missed with their pick, self-proclaimed political outsider Cindy O’Laughlin, won the Republican nomination with 36.68% of the total vote. She received 9,881 votes to 7,229 for Redmon, who finished second, well ahead of fellow state representatives Nate Walker (5,336), and Lindell Shumake (4,489).

Locally Redmon earned just shy of 60% of the vote, but just 366 total ballots compared to 150 votes for O’Laughlin.

Redmon picked up additional support outside of his State Representative 4th District, as was evident by the vote total for his replacement, Greg Sharpe, who is running unopposed to replace Redmon. Sharpe received 4,249 total votes in the district on the Republican ballot, including 402 in Scotland County.

The other significant difference between local and state numbers was in the distribution of party ballots. Statewide the break down between Republican and Democrat ballots was nearly 50/50 with a slight edge to the Republicans. In Scotland County, more than 70% of the ballots cast were Republican, likely due to the state senate race, which was voted on, on all but 15 of the party’s ballots, compared to the next highest total, the U.S. Senate race which was voted on just 516 of the 631 Republican ballots.

On the Democrat ballot, the U.S. Senate race saw 188 votes cast from among the 213 ballots submitted, with the county offices of collector, circuit clerk, recorder of deeds, and circuit clerk all posting nearly similar numbers of roughly 180+ votes.

The Prop A issue was voted on 845 of the 865 ballots cast in Scotland County. That mirrored the statewide trend, where the “Right-to-Work” question had the highest participation with nearly 1.39 million total votes cast, compared to the U.S. Senate race total of 1.27 million and 1.15 million total in the other statewide race for auditor.

School Board Votes to Raise Tax Levy Rate

The Scotland County R-I Board of Education met Monday, August 13th following the completion of the public tax rate hearing at 5:45 p.m. The regular meeting was called to order at 6:00 p.m. with five members present.  Sam Berkowitz and Jamie Triplett were absent.

Superintendent Ryan Bergeson presented a financial update for the board after announcing the district audit is scheduled for Thursday, August 23rd.

“We ended the 2017-2018 fiscal year with revenue of $6,987,174.96 and expenditures of $6,926,072.56 for a total surplus of $61,102.40,” he reported.

The board also reviewed a networking quote for the new addition but no action was taken as the district will continue to consider its options.

Tax Rate for 2018-19

The board voted 5-0 to accept the following resolution and to set the school district’s tax rate for the 2018 tax year.

After the scheduled tax rate hearing for the Scotland County R-I School District, board member, Trinity Davis, made the motion and board member, George Koontz, seconded the motion to approve the following resolution setting the school district’s tax rate ceiling for the 2018 tax year.

“It is resolved that the Scotland County R-I School District in consideration of the educational opportunities and expenses for the students, the maintenance and care of facilities, and operational needs of the school district will set the tax rate ceiling at $3.6057, the approved State Auditor’s rate.”

This resolution will undo voluntary tax rate reductions in prior even years.

The levy will increase from $3.5376 in 2017-18, which was an increase from the $3.50 levy rate in 2016-17. According to the tax rate summary published by the district, the $0.068 cent rate hike will generate an estimated $250,000 in added revenue.

September Meeting

The September Board Meeting will be Thursday, September 13th, 2018 in the High School Library.

Open session adjourned at 7:15 p.m.

Executive Session

In closed session the following items were approved:

VanDenBerg, Huls and Carter Claim $1,000 Victories at SCS Fair Makeup Races

by Brian Neal

Friday the 13th proved unlucky for the Pepsi Scotland County Speedway in July as rain showers moved thru the area shortly after the gates were opened for the 2018 Scotland County Fair Race and forced the night to be canceled. It was then announced on their Facebook page a few days later that the event would be made up on Friday, August 10th.

It turned out to be a beautiful night for racing, as 84 cars checked in for competition that was being presented by Double D Excavating and Poe Puppies.

The 12-lap Sport Compact was first to take to the track, with Dylan Schantz and Kevin Garrett drawing the front row for the race. Josh Barnes, who started 5th, would use the momentum off the top of turn four to grab the lead away from Reu on lap 2. Barnes then had to work to hold off Reu and Kimberly Abbott, who started 6th, over the rest of the race to claim his second win in a row at the track. Reu was 2nd, Abbott was 3rd, Barry Taft came from 9th to finish 4th, with Boyd rounding out the top 5.

There might have only been five Hobby Stocks turn out, but the race up front over the final half of the race was intense. Dustin Griffiths and Mike Kincaid led the field to green in the 10-lap affair and battled for the lead throughout. Coming to the white flag Griffiths drove it hard into turn three and then drifted up in front of Kincaid coming off turn four to grab the top spot back. But Kincaid would try to get under Griffiths going into turn one, and when a little contact was made it cut down Kincaid’s right rear tire, which allowed Griffiths to go on to score the win. Scott Shull was 2nd, Josh Modde was 3rd, Kincaid limped to a 4th place finish, with Cody Winn finishing in 5th.

Kevin Koontz and Brett Lowry led the field to green in the 20-lap Stock Car feature. Lowry would take advantage of his starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap one. After a lap three restart, Lowry jumped back out front, with John Oliver Jr., who started 6th, and Abe Huls, who started 9th, now glued to his back bumper.

Oliver Jr. would slip past Lowry on lap five to take the top spot away, with Huls following him into second one lap later. Huls then tried to get under Oliver Jr. over the next nine laps, only to be slowed by a caution on lap 15.

On the restart Oliver Jr. moved back out front, with Huls and Beau Taylor, who started 7th, following closely. Coming off turn four to complete lap 18, Huls went to the middle of the track to try and make the pass going into turn one, emerging from turn two with the lead. He then held on for the $1,000 victory. Taylor was 2nd, Derrick Agee charged from 15th to finish 3rd, Brandon Savage started 8th and finished 4th, with Dean Kratzer coming home in 5th.

The 20-lap Modified feature was up next, with Carter VanDenBerg and Jardin Fuller drawing the front row. VanDenBerg took the lead and set the pace out front, while Michael Long, who started 8th, was quickly working his way towards the front.  A pair of of restarts brought VanDenBerg back to the pack, with Long and Jesse Dennis, who started 11th, taking over the third spot.

Long and Dennis tried to keep pace with VanDenBerg, but he once again started to pull away, only to be slowed one final time on lap 18.

On the restart VanDenBerg moved back out front, with Long and Logan Anderson, who started 7th, glued to his back bumper. VanDenBerg would hold them off to pick up the win and the $1,000 check to go with it. Long was 2nd, Anderson was 3rd, Simmons was 4th, with Johnny Wyman completing the top five.

The final feature to take to the track was the 20-lap SportMods, with Austin Howes and Adam Birck making up the front row. Howes used his starting spot to his advantage, by jumping out into the lead on lap one over Austin Becerra and Birck. After  a pair of restarts on lap three, Brayton Carter, who started 8th, overtook Birck for the runner up spot. While Howes worked the bottom of the speedway, Carter went to the top. Carter would use the momentum off the top of the track to take the top spot away from Howes on lap six.

Three laps later, Brandon Symmonds would spin in turn two to bring out the yellow. On the restart Carter moved back out front, with Birck and Howes racing side-by-side for the second spot.

Just when it looked like Cater would pull away to an easy win, the final caution of the race appeared on lap 16. Casey Lancaster would spin in turn four to bring out the yellow.

On the restart Carter jumped back out front, with Howes over taking Birck for second. While Howes and Birck battled for the runner up spot, Carter would pull away to claim the $1,000 victory. Birck edged out Howes for 2nd. Daniel Fellows was 4th, with Brandon Lennox coming from 11th to finish in 5th.

Coming up next at the Pepsi Scotland County Speedway will be the “2nd Annual Jerry Barrickman Memorial”, which will be held on Friday, September 28th and Saturday, September 29th. Stay tuned for more information about this two day weekend, by liking them on Facebook.

JOHN EDMOND STANFORD (5/7/1943 – 8/6/2018)

John Edmond Stanford, 75, of Thomson, Illinois passed away Monday, August 6, 2018 with his loving family by his side at the V.A. Medical Center Hospital in Iowa City, Iowa after a short battle with lung cancer.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date in Thomson, Illinois, with full military rites.  Burial will be at a later date in the Dodge family plot in the Memphis Cemetery, Memphis, Missouri.  John will be in our hearts forever.  Please smile if he touched your heart during his lifetime.

John was born the third son of Paul Frederick Stanford and Genevieve Lucille Hills in LaPorte, IN on May 7, 1943. He graduated from Niles High School, Niles, Michigan with the Class of 1962.  Chief Stanford (Retired) proudly served 32 years in the US Navy Seabees both active and reserve. He dearly loved his country and the US Navy Seabees and cherished the friendships he made along this journey. He will forever be remembered for his quick wit, amazing sense of humor and strong work ethic.

John never met a stranger.  He took great pride in his home, yard and garden using his amazing mechanical and construction talents to fix anything broken and remodel several homes.  He held various management positions with several central Iowa companies while residing in LeGrand from 1979 to 2016. The Mississippi River with its barges, pontoon boat rides, fishing, sunsets and campfires with friends brought him great peace and happiness.

John is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Carol Dodge Stanford, of Thomson and his greatest sources of pride, his three children, sons Paul Thomas Stanford (Tina Anderson), Bristol, IN; Michael Edmond Stanford (Nicole)  Colorado Springs, CO and their three children, Alison, Nicholas and Emily; and his daughter, Dana Marie Jacobs (Anthony) of Prairie City, IA and their children, Christian Jacobs, US Marine Corps Camp Pendleton, CA and Megan Jacobs (Hamilton Wentworth) of Grimes, IA; two brothers, Paul Stanford of Tarzana, CA and Michael Stanford (Sally) of Los Angeles, CA; niece Leslie Flynn and nephew Kris Stanford; and beloved canine baby, Lucy.

John was preceded in death by his parents; his in-laws Ralph and Edna (Bacus) Dodge; and his canine loves, Kizzi and Gracie.
