Dear Kris Kringle, How are the reindeer? Hope the polar bears aren't bothering the reindeer. Do you have a head elf? Do like Pepsi? I have been especially good this year. I've been helping my sister and cleaning my room. I'll give you cookies if you give me presents. I will also give Rudolph some carrots too. I would like some targets to shoot at and some Hex Bugs . I want some Wii games and DS games. I also want a lizard very, very badly. I'll see you this Christmas, Santa. Your present deserving friend, Whitman C. Quillin

I want an Ipod Touch, a pony, a Xbox 360 Kinect, a Nintendo 3D DS, a toy doctor set, and 4 tickets to Hawaii. Love, Shelby Troutman P.S. Bring something nice for Mrs. Lough too!

Dear Santa, How cold is it up in the North Pole? It's freezing here in Missouri. I don't think you well be able to land on my roof, oh be careful of the cat, he has claws. I'm 99% good. I take care of Maggy Malleie, and Iggy. I clean the house. I turn in most of my homework. I want a kitten for Christmas. I want a dad for Christmas too. Your friend, Kamryn A. Mast

Dear Santa, How is Rudolph this year? It's very cold out but we've got a fire to keep us warm. You should start making your elves work hard because kids are going to want tots for toys money! So I've been very good this year. I've mowed my yard. I've done my chores and I do my homework. What I want for Christmas is an Ipod Touch, lots of money, guns, knives, and lots of stuff like usual. Your friend, Brandon Burrus

Dear Santa, How is Rudolph? I love Christmas! Have you been getting the toys ready? Let me guess you do. I'm well behaved this year. Oh please Santa please get me these things. I want an Xbox Kinect, Ipod Touch and MWS. I want those things. I mean is Dixon having fun? Oh is Rudolph still leading the pack? Maybe you can work. Your best boy, Garth Small

Dear Santa, How are you doing? Are the elves doing well? I wish I could come and visit, but I'm to lazy to get up plus it's too far of a walk. How is the weather doing up there? It is cold down here. My Christmas tree is tilty and we need to get new lights for the tree. They all don't work or most of them. Do you gain weight ever or do you lose weight everyday? What I want for Christmas is an Xbox 360 with Kinect and Halo Reach. Your friend, Spencer Kerkmann

Dear Santa, How's the North Pole this time of year? Are you bringing Rudolph along with you? Don't get too full because I am going to make a whole bunch of cookies. I hope Blitzen doesn't get a blitzy of a cold. I have been extra good this year. I have been helping my mom, doing my homework, and helping others. One more question. How is the Mrs. Claus? I have been a very good little girl. All I am asking for Christmas is some painting supplies for my paint set. I also would like lots and lots of jewelry. Thanks Santa Claus, you are awesome. Your friend, Arysta Snyder

Dear Santa, I'm so excited, 20 days until Christmas! How are the reindeer? Are they ready for the long trip? Are you ready for the long trip? I've been very good this year! I deserve all the gifts I get this Christmas. I did all my chores, and I am on the honor role. This year I'm asking for an Ipod Touch and a new Wii game. Thank you Santa, Your friend, Katie Parsons P.S. Merry Christmas!

Dear Santa, I love Christmas! It is my favorite holiday! There are a few things that I really like about Christmas, sledding, sitting by the fire and decorating the Christmas tree. What are yours? This year I don't want a lot of things I want I really want! I would like it if you make the coat the color of her fur, with line green S on it. I also would like a drawn picture of me and my cat. The last thing I want is an Ipod Touch with a lime green case. I really want those things and I believe that you can make them! Please work hard, and have a good Christmas! Your favorite girl, Micah Cooley

Dear Santa, How are the reindeer in the North Pole? My animals are freezing in the barn. Are you ready to go down the chimney on Christmas Eve? Does Rudolph still have that red nose? I have been a good daughter, sister, and student this year. I have been extra good. I have been feeding my kittens every other day. I'm asking for an Ipod Touch, a few DS games, a huge trampoline, and a Temper Pedic bed for Christmas. Thank you so much Santa. Your friend, Avery Shultz

Dear Santa, How are you doing? I'm doing well. I have been good sometimes. How are the elves and reindeer? All I want for Christmas are dogs, a touch screen Ipod, a touch screen phone, and my own room I have to share a room with my sister. I will make sugar cookies for you. Also, I will make cookies for the reindeer and elves. Love, Maycee Ferrel

Dear Kris Kringel, I've been wondering this for a long time is Jack Frost your brother? If he is, why is he so mean and you're jolly or is that just in the movie? Oh did each of your reindeer go to Bath & Body Works because they each have a hand sanitizer named after them? My talkativeness has gotten me into trouble sometimes. I have been trying to behave as well as I could. I helped my friend Arysta find her turtle charm to her necklace. I have tried to do my best this year. I find the whole "asking for presents" think a little bit selfish. I don't care what you give me, I just want something nice. Your friend, Susannah DeMarce

Dear Santa, Who is your favorite reindeer? My favorite reindeer is Comet. My mom said we're going to make you some cookies and milk. I might have some carrots for your reindeer if my cat doesn't eat them first. I have been good son and student all year. I also gave Mrs. Lough popcorn. All I want for Christmas is an Ipad and Wizard 101 cards. I do hope I get these gifts. Sincerely, Reilly Shoemaker P.S. I would like my books.

Dear Santa, I have been good this year. How are the reindeer? I will give you milk and cookies. How are the elves? Are you working hard? I have been good. I take care of my two dogs. I also help my grandma. I run after my puppy when he runs off. I watched my cousins is why I deserve all the gifts I ask for. Please get my puppy some treats so I can teach him how to sit. I want Chutes and Ladders, and stuff for my American Girl Doll. Keep up the good work. Your friend, Briana Van DeVeire

Dear Santa, Hey Santa! I am freezing down here in Missouri! Guess what? For your snack I will be making Monster and fiber cookies. Last year we gave you Mt. Dew. Santa please, please give some gifts. I have been good. I bought my sister Lydia her favorite toy. Santa, if you don't give me presents I will not give you a snack. Just kidding! I will tell your elves that they have been caught being good. I want a bitty baby named Katrin Elizabeth. I want her to have brown hair and blue eyes. I would like some diapers for my baby doll. I would like a body bed too. Yours truly, Natalie Krouse

I've been a help to people with things like shoveling dirt, and cutting grass and watching my sister's dog at home. I want some coal and a Hex Bug. I want it to snow 6 feet and a .270 long range rifle. Your friend, Lathe Bair

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.
