Logan Stufflebean and his family were just a few of the community members who helped American Legion Edgar Cole Post 304 place flags at the resting places of veterans in Tipton on Thursday, May 25. The volunteers started at St. Andrew's Cemetery, then made their way to the Masonic Cemetery and seperated to cover all local cemeteries. Extra flags were left at the entrances to the cemeteries for placement by visiting families on graves of those the crew may have missed.

For some jobs, farmers need help. Custom operators provide a wide range of services. The jobs vary from tillage and planting to spreading fertilizer and harvesting grain and hay. Big jobs might be building fence or moving dirt.
Driving into Jefferson City this week, something was different. There was far less traffic than just a few days prior. The regular legislative session had come to a close. Seasonal residents of the capital city have returned home. It’s a good time to look back at the 2017 regular session.

LATHAM- Monday afternoon, Vickie Miller, Connie Hibdon and Bonnie Bolinger arrived at the school with cake and ice cream for everyone in honor of Erin Butler, Eric Moles and myself. The three of us will not be returning to Latham School in the fall. This was all prompted by an idea from Vickie’s grandson, Hunter Moser, and friends.
As I said last week, I’m on vacation this week but just thought it would be a nice time to say “thank you” to all the various volunteers who help out, spend time or minister to the folks who live here. I don’t often say “thank you” in the newspaper, but wanted you each to know just how valuable you are to me and the folks you serve. We treasure you! Wow, to give of your time and talents, not asking for anything in return is such a blessing!

SYRACUSE- This week I have grown in my respect for the blind and those with impaired vision. I was working in the yard on a day when the temperature was close to 90 degrees and sweating intensely, went to wipe the sweat running into my eyes and discovered my glasses were not on my face. I searched diligently to no avail and had to accept the fact that my glasses were lost, perhaps forever. Hopefully I will not mow over them with the lawn mower.
