Local 4-H Youth Take Part In 2017 Missouri State Fair

Elsie Kigar gives a 4-H demonstration “How to Make Homemade Noodles” at the 2017 Missouri State Fair in Sedalia.

SEDALIA, MISSOURI —  On August 13, 2017, Elsie and Eli  Kigar from the Jolly Jacks & Jills 4-H club in Scotland County presented demonstrations at the Missouri State Fair in the 4-H Building on the fairgrounds in Sedalia.

Elsie’s demonstration was entitled  “How to Make Homemade Noodles” while Eli gave a presentation entitled “How to Make A Dirt Hole Set for Trapping”.

The siblings were among the 300 youth selected to give a demonstration in the 4-H Building at the Missouri State Fair.  Missouri 4-H members compete at the county events in order to qualify for the State Fair 4-H Building demonstrations.

Demonstrations are a great way of sharing what the youth has learned in 4-H projects.  Preparing for a demonstration helps 4-H youth develop research, organization and communication skills.  Presenting a demonstration in front of a group helps 4-H youth build poise, confidence and public speaking skills.

For more information about the University of Missouri Extension 4-H program, contact Kristy Eggleston-Wood at the Scotland County Extension Center at 660-465-7255.

Eli Kigar receives his ribbon for being a presenter at the 2017 Missouri State Fair.

Putnam County Stops SCR-I 3-2 in Softball Season Opener

Katie Feeney’s head-first slide into home just beats the tag as she scored on a wild pitch in the third inning to knot the score at 2-2.

Ashleigh Creek smashed the first strike she saw in her senior season for a solo home run on Monday night in Memphis, but it was not enough as Scotland County fell to Putnam County 3-2 in the 2017 season debut for the Lady Tigers.

The Lady Midgets jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first with a couple of base hits.

But Creek trimmed the deficit to 2-1 when she led off in the bottom of the second inning, crushing a line drive over the left field fence to make the score 2-1. Khloe Hamlin and Abby Blessing followed with base hits to give SCR-I a chance at a big inning, but both runners were stranded.

SCR-I erased a lead off error in the third when catcher Katie Feeney gunned down a would-be base stealer at second with a nice catch and tag by shortstop Khloe Hamlin.

The momentum carried over to the bottom of the third when Feeney led off with a base hit. She stole second base and moved into scoring position on a ground out by Kaitlyn McMinn. The sophomore then sprinted home and her head-first slide just avoided the tag on a wild pitch to knot the score at 2-2.

But Putnam County pulled ahead for good in the top of the fourth inning. A pair of singles and a hit by pitch loaded the bases with two outs when a blooper fell in behind the mound and everyone was safe to make the score 3-2.

Creek worked out of a jam in the seventh, stranding a pair of runners.

Unfortunately, SCR-I managed just one base runner over the final four innings, a two-out single by Creek in the sixth, as Putnam County held on for the 3-2 win.

Creek took the loss on the mound, allowing three runs, two earned, on six hits and a hit by pitch. She struck out eight in seven innings of work.

Sammi Bradshaw limited SCR-I to two runs on five hits while striking out five.

Creek went 2-3 with a home run, an RBI and a run scored. Feeney, Hamlin and Blessing recorded the other hits, all going 1-3.

Mary Louise Brown, 98, died Thursday, August 17, 2017, at her home in Carbondale, IL surrounded by loving family.

She was born October 30, 1918, in Kirksville, MO, to George E. and Nannie Moore Leslie. She grew up in Memphis, MO, where she attended public schools and was valedictorian of her high school class. Following graduation with a Bachelors Degree from Kirksville State College, she taught in high schools in Kirksville and Monticello, MO. She was married in 1940 to Clyde Moseley Brown. In 1951 they moved to Carbondale, IL where they raised their family. After his death in 1965, she worked in Academic Advisement at Southern Illinois University until her retirement in 1988.

Mary Lou was a devoted mother, survived by her children Nancy Cook (Greg) of Makanda, IL, Susie Ellison (Lee) of Portland, OR, Bill Brown of New Braunfels, TX, Rosemary Hopson (Jack) of St. Louis, MO, Laura Ventetuolo of Cranston, RI, and Charles Brown (Jeanne) of Beltsville, MD. She was grandmother of 11 and great-grandmother of 23 children. She is also survived by her sister Nancy Harris of Memphis, MO and many nieces and nephews. She will be missed by many longtime friends and neighbors and by her dedicated caregivers, Diana, Eva, Rachel and Pat.

Mary Lou was an active member of the First United Methodist Church of Carbondale for 66 years, and of Chapter GX, PEO Sisterhood. She volunteered in her children’s schools and scouts. Among her many interests were traveling with family, playing bridge, gardening and reading. She was an enthusiastic supporter of Saluki Basketball, attending all home games for many years.

Services for Mary Lou were held Wednesday, August 23, at First United Methodist Church, in Carbondale, IL with Rev. Alan Rhein officiating. Burial followed in Oakland Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory to First United Methodist Church, Hospice of Southern Illinois or a charity of the donor’s choice will be appreciated. Envelopes will be available at the church.

Mark the Path

I’ve learned over the years, to keep a watchful eye when I travel to a tree stand in an unfamiliar place. I especially do this when I’m hunting in another state. I’ve been lost a few times. When I’m walking in, I always try to turn around and look back to see what the view looks like going in the opposite direction. I also mark certain topographical differences such as a fallen tree or one that has a certain shape or characteristic. I also take with me some marking ribbon just in case I have to wander through the woods in search for an animal I may have shot. I will mark my path back to my tree stand.

I’ve just hunted long enough to understand that no matter how experienced I may think I am, I can and will get turned around in a strange place. One of the simplest inventions that came along a few years ago was reflective tacks. They are pushed into a tree and when passed over with a flashlight will make a path look like an airport runway.  I’ve hunted in some places where these tacks were put on both sides of the path every few feet, all the way to the foot of the tree where I was to hunt. Because someone marked my path, there was no way I was getting lost.

When I think about the most important things in my life, I am equally thankful some folks marked a clear path to keep me from getting lost. And even though I chose to stray from that path many times, it was not because the path was not marked sufficiently.

Wisdom is knowing when to blaze your own trail and when to understand the trail that others have blazed is the only way to go. It is also making sure you have marked the correct trail for those who will come after you. There are some areas in life that those who follow us must find out for themselves; things like what their call is or what their passions are. There is no shortcut for these pursuits. In other areas we can save them a lot of heartaches if we will clearly mark the path and warn them concerning leaving its narrow way.

Even though I had some great guides in my life, I also know if others had also accepted their responsibility for pointing me the right way, I could have learned a lot of important lessons a lot earlier than I did. Don’t ever be afraid to mark the path when you are exactly sure where it leads.

Battle of Brier Creek

The Battle of Brier Creek was an American Revolutionary War battle fought on March 3, 1779 near the confluence of Brier Creek with the Savannah River in eastern Georgia. A Patriot force consisting principally of militia from North Carolina and Georgia was surprised, suffering significant casualties. The battle occurred only a few weeks after a resounding American Patriot victory over the British at Kittle Creek, north of Augusta,  reversing its effect on morale. Following the entry of France into the Revolutionary War in 1778, the British focused their  attention on the American South, to which they had not paid great attention in the early years of  the war. The British Commander was Mark Prevost. The American Commander was  John Ashe. On the afternoon  of March 3, 1779 a rider galloped into the American camp warning of the British approach. While the exact time they had to deploy is uncertain, the relatively hurried nature of their deployment is clear. The number of troops that actually formed up was about  900, as a  number of troops had been dispatched to the south for scouting and  others were on duty elsewhere. Distribution of ammunition to the men  was complicated by  the shortage of cartouche boxes and varying musket  calibers, and most of the Patriot militia did not have bayonets. Seeing the British charging at them, many broke and ran without even firing a shot. The result was a British victory. The American Patriots had at least 150 men killed, unknown wounded and 227 captured.
