It’s Winter Weather Awareness Day!

It may not be snowing yet, but Winter Weather Awareness Day─November 15─is upon us. What better opportunity to plan for the cold weather months and the sleet, ice, and snow they bring? Cold weather patterns affect road conditions and drivers need to adjust their approach to travel.

There is no mystery to driving on ice: It’s dangerous and should be avoided when possible. What some people describe as “black ice” is simply ice on a paved roadway. Ice is transparent, thus allowing the roadway to be seen beneath. Drivers sometimes blame this condition for their traffic crash. However, it is a driver’s responsibility to exercise the highest degree of care while driving on Missouri’s roadways (Section 304.012 RSMo.).

Stopping quickly in the winter on snow-covered or icy roads is next to impossible. Use care by increasing your following distance as you drive. Ask yourself if the speed you’re traveling is safe for the weather conditions. Slow down when driving in snow or on ice. Driving the speed limit is not “exercising the highest degree of care” during inclement weather.

One traffic crash can affect traffic for hours during inclement weather. The Missouri State Highway Patrol suggests keeping your fuel tank at least half full. Having an ice scraper, tire chains, battery booster cables, blankets, extra coats, gloves, water, non-perishable food, flashlight, and a bag of sand or cat litter in your trunk can help when trouble strikes. Emergencies cannot be predicted, but planning ahead can help if one should arise.

If you have a cell phone, make sure it’s fully charged and with you when you travel. Please do not use your cell phone when you are driving; park your vehicle well off the roadway or in a parking lot before placing a call. The Missouri State Highway Patrol emergency number is 1-800-525-5555 (or *55 on a cellular phone). These numbers ring at the nearest troop headquarters.

If you decide it’s necessary to drive in inclement weather, take the time to make sure your vehicle’s windows are completely cleared to ensure visibility. Clear your driveway so your vehicle enters the roadway safely. Allow extra driving time for you to reach your destination at a slow, safe speed. Remember: Missouri law states if you’re using your windshield wipers, your headlights must be turned on. It takes only a second to turn on your vehicle’s headlights. That second could make you more visible to other drivers and prevent a traffic crash.

If you are involved in a crash or slide off the roadway, stay inside your vehicle with your seat belt on. During inclement weather, multiple vehicles often crash or slide off the roadway at the same location. If you are walking around your vehicle, the chances of being injured or killed is much greater than if you remain inside your vehicle. The safest course of action is to contact law enforcement by cell phone and remain inside your vehicle. If there are no injuries in the crash, the vehicles should be moved off the roadway to a safer location while waiting for law enforcement response.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol urges everyone to pay attention to the weather and plan ahead. Motorists are encouraged to check the road conditions before driving to help determine if the trip can be completed safely. Consulting Missouri’s Road Condition Report (1-888-275-6636) or MoDOT’s Road Condition Map at http://traveler.modot.org/map/ can provide the most current road condition information available. Avoiding travel may be the safest decision.

Winter weather affects driving conditions and traffic patterns. Don’t drive if you can avoid it. But, if you drive pay attention, turn off your phone, be courteous, and obey all traffic laws. Remember: Always buckle up. Never drink and drive.

MU Chancellor Alexander Cartwright Announces Scholarships to Increase Access and Affordability During ‘100 Days’ address

During an address marking his first 100 days as the University of Missouri’s top leader, Chancellor Alexander Cartwright today announced new scholarships for students from neighboring states and the expansion of scholarships for children of alumni.

The Border State Scholars award will reduce out-of-state tuition by $2,500 for students coming from one of Missouri’s eight border states: Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma or Tennessee. The Black and Gold Scholarship expands MU’s out-of-state scholarships for children of alumni. For out-of-state, legacy students, the university is now offering a $7,500 scholarship with a 25 or 26 ACT. Out-of-state, legacy students who have a 27 ACT or above will continue to receive a scholarship that will reduce tuition to in-state levels.

“I have witnessed firsthand the transformational power of higher education, and I am committed to doing everything I can to ensure the next generation has access to the excellent education offered at Mizzou,” Cartwright said. “Mizzou is already an outstanding value by many measures, and our students borrow 25 percent less than the national average to pay for college. However, we must continue to move forward on very practical fronts to make higher education more accessible and to give a higher return on our students’ investments.”

Mizzou invests about $12 million per year in need-based financial aid to promote access and affordability in higher education. MU students graduate, on average, with $8,000 less in student debt than the national average.

Vice Provost for Enrollment Management Pelema Morrice said the new scholarships will increase interest in the university amid an increasingly competitive higher education climate.

“We know that affordability and value are important factors for prospective students and their families,” Morrice said. “These new scholarships will help Mizzou be competitive while offering a world-renowned education.”

The scholarships were unveiled during Cartwright’s address to the university community titled “University for Missouri: A Commitment to Student Success.” Also during the speech, Cartwright highlighted the success of “the Missouri Method,” in which students gain real-world experience applying their education in professional and practical settings. He charged the Faculty Council to consider how such experiential learning—already common across MU’s schools and colleges—could be expanded to all students.

“Employers hire our graduates because they are known for their work ethic and their readiness for the job from day one,” Cartwright said. “Real-world experience gives our students the skills they need to succeed, and this is an opportunity all of our students should have.”

The announcement follows several affordability initiatives previously launched this year, including:

A new ROTC scholarship that will cover room and board costs for the freshman year for incoming ROTC students who are national scholarship winners from the Army, Air Force, Navy or Marines.
A reduction in the cost of Mizzou’s most common housing and dining plans.
The Missouri Land Grant Compact, which covers the tuition gap for any Pell-eligible Missouri resident.
Changes to student chargethat prevent students from accumulating debt for non-academic expenses.
A textbook initiative encouraging Open Educational Resources (OER) in classes, as well as the AutoAccess option for textbooks at all four campuses. As a result, textbooks at the Mizzou Store this fall are, on average, 18 percent cheaper than they were in fall 2016.

Tree Pruning with a Purpose

Fall is a great time to be outside admiring the trees in our landscapes. We take stock of which trees are looking good and which seem to need a little help. If we discover trees that look like they’ve seen better days, we instantly want to solve the problem. It is natural to want to do something to help a plant – prune it, fertilize it, polish it – we can’t help wanting to touch it in some way.

One basic housekeeping chore that might help a struggling tree would be pruning. Pruning is an oft-needed maintenance treatment for good tree health and safety, but pruning without a good reason is not good tree care practice. Pruning just because your neighbor is doing it may not be beneficial for the tree, and could result in too much live tree tissue being removed. This can cause the tree to become stressed, and perhaps decline. In the fall, limit the amount of live tissue being removed and focus mainly on removing dead or broken branches.

In fact, industry tree pruning standards (ANSI A300) say no more than 25 percent of a tree’s foliage should be removed in a single growing season. If the tree is of a species that cannot tolerate a lot of pruning, even less should be removed.

When determining how much pruning your tree can tolerate, a qualified arborist may consider if the tree:

  • is healthy
  • is still growing rapidly or has matured and slowed its growth
  • had its roots severed or damaged recently or in the past
  • suffers from disease
  • is a species tolerant of heavy pruning

A qualified arborist will work with you to set an objective for the pruning job (i.e., what you want accomplished when the work is done). Pruning objectives usually include one or more of the following:

  • reduce risk of damage to people or property
  • manage tree health and direction of growth
  • provide clearance for vehicles or roadways
  • improve tree structure
  • increase or improve aesthetics
  • restore shape

The pruning process can be overwhelming to those not familiar with the pruning of shade and ornamental trees. A qualified tree care expert trained in tree and woody plant health care can answer your questions, as well as help you with your tree-pruning goals. Make sure to ask for tree pruning to be done according to ANSI A300 standards, the generally accepted industry standards for tree care practices.

Blood Drives in our area in November

Red Cross calls for blood donors before the holiday season

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (Oct. 19, 2017) — With the busy holiday season approaching, the American Red Cross encourages donors to give blood now to help ensure a sufficient supply for patients this winter.

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, many regular donors delay giving due to holiday activities and travel. This often decreases the amount of donated blood available for patients. More donations are needed in the weeks leading up to the holidays to help stock the shelves for patients like Emily Bratton. After the birth of her first child, she received several units of blood.

Give patients in need another reason to be thankful – make an appointment to give blood. Download the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Butler Bears vs Stockton Tigers Sports Update

On September 29th, the Butler Bears traveled to Stockton to take on the Tigers. The Bears came out of the gate ready to play and had a good first half, but they couldn’t keep the momentum going and was defeated. The final score was 14-37, Tigers.

The Bears started the game strong and was able to score within the first 9 minutes of the game with a 56 yard touchdown run by #40 Sophomore Zach Wicks, and it was followed up with a good extra point. Unfortunately, Stockton also scored in the first quarter and successfully scored a 2 point conversion.

In the Second Quarter both teams hit the field ready to play. Butler scored the first touchdown of the second quarter with a 6 yard touchdown pass from #18 Junior Kirby Connell to #22 Senior Tyler Hough, and the Bears followed up the touchdown with a good extra point. Stockton also scored in the second quarter and successfully completed another 2 point conversion.

At Half-Time the score was 14-16, Stockton Tigers.

The Bears came back from Halftime and couldn’t seem to keep their scoring momentum. In addition, their defense struggled to keep the Stockton Tigers from scoring. In the Third Quarter the Stockton Tigers scored two touchdowns and successfully completed one 2 point conversion, and they scored one more time with a successful extra point in the Fourth Quarter. With those three scores from Stockton, the game ended with a final score of 37-14, Stockton Pirates.

Butler Bears Head Coach Kirk Hannah had this to say about his team:

“[It was] another really good first half and we were right where we wanted to be going into the 3rd quarter. [The Bears were] only down 2 at Halftime with a very young group and getting the ball to start the 3rd quarter. That is kind of the story of our season, [The Bears] couldn’t move the ball effectively enough and put points on the board in the Second Half. I thought we battled all night.”

The Butler Bears will take on the Summit Christian Academy Eagles at Butler on October 13th with Kickoff at 7pm!

Bates County Sheriff’s Office Assisted in Pursuit by MSHP and Kansas Wildlife

On September 27, 2017 Deputies responded to the Merwin area to assist in a vehicle pursuit that was initiated by a KS Game Warden.  The suspect’s car was parked near the railroad tracks in Merwin.  Additional Deputies and Agencies were called to the scene to assist in the search for the suspect.  All of the houses in the immediate area were searched for the suspect with negative results.  A short time later a man meeting the description of the suspect was seen walking along a ridge to the west of the scene.  A Deputy made contact with the suspect who was hiding behind a cluster of trees.

 

The suspect was identified as Matthew Scott Joiner (DOB 10/1/1968).  Joiner complied with the Deputy’s commands and was taken into custody.  While they were leaving the trees a black bag was discovered that held a syringe and what appeared to be methamphetamine in it.  The Deputy tested the syringe and the crystal substance and it tested positive for methamphetamine.

Joiner was transported to the Bates County Jail where he remains in custody.  He was charged in Bates County with Possession of a Controlled Substance except 35 grams or less of Marijuana and for Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  His bond was set $10,000.00 cash or surety.

The Bates County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Kansas Department of Wildlife.

Securities Division Orders Payment of More than $2 Million in Restitution

Jefferson City, Mo. — Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft ‘s Securities Division ordered an unregistered agent and six businesses to cease and desist after finding the respondents sold unregistered, non-exempt securities to Missouri investors. The division also ordered respondents to pay restitution and interest of more than $2.3 million, as well as civil penalties of $261,000 and investigation costs of more than $7,000.

Chadwick W. Brooks offered and sold the unregistered securities while employed at ABM Management, Inc.-Washington; ABM Management, Inc.-Nevada; ABM Management, Intl., Ltd.; Amcap Premier, LP; Doctors Investment Group, LP; and Cloud Nine Investments, LLC. The division is ordering the six businesses to cease and desist for employing Brooks, an unregistered agent. The order also states that Brooks and the businesses omitted to state material facts in order to obtain funds from an elderly Missouri resident.

From approximately 2002-13, Brooks solicited at least $2 million from Missouri and Kansas investors, purportedly to be invested in Doctors Investment Group and Amcap Premier, among other businesses. Brooks failed to disclose that he was not registered to offer or sell securities in Missouri. He also failed to provide year-end financial statements to the investors, as promised in the offering documents.

All investors received yearly returns until 2015, when payments stopped. Brooks no longer answers investors’ telephone calls or emails and is believed to be in the Republic of Panama.

“Investors should independently verify all investment opportunities, as well as the background of the individual, company and offering before investing,” Ashcroft said. “Our Securities Division can provide detailed information about registered individuals who sell securities and provide financial advice, as well as verify the registrations of the products being sold.”

“Do your homework and check to see if someone is currently registered in Missouri before parting with your hard earned money, because it may be the last you see of that person or your money,” Securities Commissioner David M. Minnick said. “A phone call to us is a preemptive measure that is always a wise investment.”

Ashcroft urges all investors to know the risks. If you have any questions about an investment opportunity or wish to check the background and registration status of a financial adviser, please call the toll-free investor protection hotline at 800-721-7996, or go online to www.sos.mo.gov/securities to file a complaint.

United States Concealed Carry Association Remembers September 11, 2001

In Sixteen Years Since, Acts of Terror Have Made Right to Self-Defense Fundamental to Our Safety
West Bend, WI – The United States Concealed Carry Association has released the following statement on the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001:

“As America remembers the horrific events and lives lost during the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001, we are reminded that the threats we face will never cease to exist,” said Tim Schmidt, Founder & President of the United States Concealed Carry Association. “In the sixteen years since, acts of terror in the United States and abroad have continued to occur, making the right to self-defense fundamental to our safety. The right to keep and bear arms, especially through concealed carry, can be a powerful deterrent effect on certain types of terrorism, such as the attacks in San Bernardino, California and Paris, France. We hope that our leaders recognize the threats we face and allow Americans to defend themselves and their families by exercising their right to keep and bear arms.”

The U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) provides education, training and self-defense insurance to responsible American gun owners. Headquartered in West Bend, WI, the USCCA is the largest and fastest-growing, member-owned, private association whose sole focus is the responsibly armed American.

Tim Schmidt, Founder & President of the US Concealed Carry Association, is available for commentary. For more information, please contact [email protected]

Jefferson City : Missouri Department of Transportation Launches Statewide Survey

 

JEFFERSON CITY – The Missouri Department of Transportation today launched a statewide survey to solicit public input about the vision for the state’s transportation priorities. The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is a federally required process that sets the state’s 25-year vision for transportation.

“Our long range planning process is a critical time for our department to assess the needs of our system and hear directly from our customers – the citizens of Missouri – to ensure our priorities match the needs of our people,” said MoDOT Director Patrick McKenna. “As we work to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars, the LRTP gives us the ability to review public and stakeholder input and address those customer needs.”

Missouri’s current plan was approved in February 2014, but new federal laws and regulations require additional content, including system performance metrics and targets. As MoDOT updates its LRTP, the department will review the goals established in 2014, including preservation, safety, economic development, and connections and choices. In addition, this year’s plan will be the first time Missouri examines how to prepare for autonomous and connected vehicles.

MoDOT is gathering public input for the plan through an online survey tool. The survey – which takes approximately 10 minutes to complete – was developed as a simple way for all Missourians to weigh in. The survey is available starting today and will remain open through Wednesday, Oct. 11. Interested citizens can take the survey by visiting https://modotlrtp.metroquest.com/ on a computer, smartphone or tablet. MoDOT encourages those who need access to a computer to visit their local public library or MoDOT District Office. MoDOT District Offices will also have paper copies of the survey available.

Missouri has the nation’s seventh largest state highway system, with 33,856 miles of roadways and 10,403 bridges. Balancing the preservation and maintenance of the current system with new demands and infrastructure priorities requires strategic decision-making that can only be accomplished with insights from the public and stakeholders. The public-input process is critical to MoDOT’s planning process.

The final plan will be available for public comment in the spring and will be presented to the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission for review and consideration for approval at its May 2018 meeting.

Additional questions about the survey and the long range planning process can be addressed by calling customer service centers at 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636), or by mail to Transportation Planning, P.O. Box 270, Jefferson City, MO 65102.

Injury Update: Eric Berry Ruptured His Achilles Tendon lastThursday Night

Matt McMullen Chiefs [email protected]_Matt

The All-Pro safety will miss the remainder of the season
The Kansas City Chiefs were dealt some tough news on Friday as Head Coach Andy Reid confirmed that safety Eric Berry suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in the Chiefs’ season-opening win over New England. “As far as injuries go, Eric Berry is probably the one we need to talk about. He did rupture his Achilles tendon, so he’ll be out,” Reid said. “Whatever moves are made, (General Manager Brett Veach) is on that and working on that right now, but Eric won’t be playing.” Berry recorded seven tackles (4.0 solo), including a tackle-for-loss, before suffering the injury in the fourth quarter. While his season appears to be over, the eight-year veteran doesn’t want his absence to affect the rest of the team’s mentality on the field.

“He had an opportunity to talk to the team last night after the game and I know he would be very disappointed if anybody hung their head or let that be an issue, Reid said. “I thought the guys handled it very well, even after Eric got hurt. The guys know Eric would be disappointed if they let off in anyway at all, so I think we’ll be okay there.”  Though Berry won’t be on the field, he can still maintain a presence in the locker room, much like linebacker Derrick Johnson did last season after rupturing his Achilles.

“We’ll just see how the whole thing works out. I joked about it last night that this is like how I dealt with (Derrick Johnson) last year – they can work on their coaching career and see if they like coaching,” Reid said. “We’ll just see how all that works out as we go forward.”

On the field, the Chiefs will employ the “next man up” philosophy as Kansas City prepares for the home opener on Sept. 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

“He’s a unique person, so you’re not going to replace that, but you have to remember that this is a team sport,” Reid said. “Everybody has to pick their game up in all areas and then the next man up has to pick his game up and get in there and do his thing. We’ve lived on that since we’ve been here and the players believe in that, so that’s how we roll.”

Chiefs Announce Details for Red Friday; Introduce Special Golden Flag Contest

The Kansas City Chiefs are introducing a special twist to the 26th edition of the annual Red Friday campaign: the opportunity to find a Golden Flag when purchasing a Chiefs Kingdom Flag in Kansas City on Friday, September 15.

A select number of Golden Flags will be randomly spread across the city at different McDonald’s locations. Lucky fans will win this specially designed and autographed Chiefs Kingdom Golden Flag and an exclusive prize pack that includes two tickets and a Chiefs VIP experience to the home opener on Sunday, September 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles and Big Macs for a year.

In total, Chiefs Kingdom flags will be sold at more than 135 Kansas City and St. Joseph area McDonald’s restaurants, with the proceeds from flag sales in Kansas City benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City. Last year, nearly $250,000 was raised from flag sales alone, while over the past three years, flag sales have raised more than $550,000 for RMHC-KC.

In addition to the Golden Flag contest, the organization has announced that for the first time in team history, Red Friday will head south for a stop in Springfield, Missouri, joining the tradition in both Omaha, Nebraska and Wichita, Kansas.

“Red Friday has been a tradition within the Chiefs Kingdom for 26 years. We are excited to introduce this new Golden Flag promotion where lucky fans will have an opportunity to win special prizes while continuing to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. “As we have expanded the tradition to Omaha, Wichita and now Springfield, our community support of local charities has grown with it.  We are grateful for the positive response across Chiefs Kingdom and are looking forward to kicking off the Red Friday festivities with everyone here in Kansas City.”

In alignment with the Red Friday celebration in Kansas City, “Chiefs Kingdom” flags will be available for a suggested minimum donation of $5 on Friday, September 15 in Omaha, Wichita, and Springfield to benefit a local charity in each of those markets.

In Springfield and surrounding communities, flags will be sold at 58 McDonald’s locations. Net proceeds from the sale of those flags will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ozarks.

In Omaha, flags will be sold at more than 20 Hy-Vee Gas and Hy-Vee store locations in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metropolitan-area to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Midlands. Over $20,000 has been raised during the Red Friday campaign in Omaha the last two years.

In Wichita and the surrounding communities of Newton, Hutchinson and Salina, flags will be sold at Kwik Shop locations. Last year, $25,000 was raised to support Boys & Girls Clubs members throughout South Central Kansas.

Additional information, including details on the Golden Flag and a map of sale locations in Kansas City, Omaha, Wichita and Springfield, is available at www.chiefs.com/redfriday.

New ‘No Parking’ Zones Designated Around Harrisonville High School

This summer, based on recommendations from the Harrisonville Cares Coalition, the Harrisonville City Council passed new parking regulations impacting Elm Street.

There is no parking on the south side of Elm Street at any time.  There is no parking on the north side of Elm Street, which is the side HHS sits on, from 7am to 4pm on school days between Price and Mechanic Streets.  There is also no parking on the north side of Elm from 11am to 4pm on school days between Price and Halsey Street.

This means drivers can park on the north side of Elm for evening events.  This will provide for safer exiting procedures after night events as no one will have to cross the street to get into their car.

Within the HHS campus, there are a few no parking areas, specifically in the drop-off and fire lanes which are painted red.  Do not park a car in these locations at any time.

Prepare Your Pooch: September is National Preparedness Month

Tips from the Humane Society of Missouri Disaster Response Team to Keep Pets Safe in Times of Disaster

From power outages to tornados, fires to floods, disasters for Missouri residents are unpredictable and often unexpected. When making a disaster plan, many people forget about protecting their furry family members. These four-legged friends are left behind by owners who are not prepared to properly care for them during or after a disaster. However, with a little extra preparation, pet owners can have a plan in place to ensure all of their loved ones remain safe.

September is National Preparedness Month, and it is the perfect time to put a plan in place for the whole family, including pets. The Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Task Force offers these four tips, which could be the key to survival:

  1. Create a plan: Create an evacuation plan that includes your pet and inform close friends and family. Identify pet-friendly places to go in times of distress and make sure your pet has identification, including a collar with ID tag and an up-to-date microchip, at all times. In addition, be sure to include a plan for pet care if you are away from home when disaster strikes.
  2. Make a disaster kit: Include medications, medical records, leashes/harnesses/carriers, current photos and descriptions of your pets, five days’ worth of food and water, and anything that will reduce your pet’s stress, like their bed and toys.
  3. If you evacuate, take your pet: Don’t assume your pet will be fine, even if you think you will only be gone for a short period of time.
  4. Listen for information: Whether it’s over the radio or on your phone, listening and following news outlets is key to receiving updates on where to go and what to do during an emergency.
