Deer Seasons Past
As the sun would sink past the hilltops, brothers would slowly drag themselves in from the woods. Every so often, one would have his latest kill flung over his shoulder ready to proudly show it off to the family.
Then came the stories while we sat around a hearty meal. Most of the brothers kept the story straight and to the point. Saw deer, took aim, shot…deer died. But there was always that one brother who had a whopper of a story to go along with his slain beast or that would explain why he wasn't able to bring down that thirty point buck that was staring him down. The stories were too outlandish to believe and none of us ever did take them seriously, but they certainly were entertaining. There's always one in the bunch!
When at last the season came to its ends, the long butchering process would begin. The living room would be cleared of furniture, the fold-out tables would be set up and covered with plastic, the electric saw and meat grinder would be prepared and all knives would be sharpened. And for the next few days, slicing and dicing was all we did. On an average season we'd have five deer to bag up. On a good year we would have over seven!
Some years it would be so cold we wouldn't tackle the meat until a good week after season, on others, the heat and flies would be so bad we'd have to process the meat the day the deer was downed.
Be it a good year or a bad, we always had some tasty venison in the freezer which would give the pocket book a break from buying bland store bought meat for such a huge family. And the season always gave us a much needed break from everyday life.
But now as I take a break from my own processing of a deer someone blessed us with, to write up this article, I'd have to admit, my married-life deer season void of all brothers is a lonely and quiet one. Doug generally pulls out his gear the night of and little to no food is prepared to take along because he usually doesn't venture off our forty acres. It's hard to get excited over the whole thing with poachers and dog runners often flushing out the valley well ahead of time, leaving Doug with little opportunity to down a deer on our own property. This was a problem even when I still lived with the family, but having seven brothers out and scattered over two hundred acres along Blair's Creek, chances of bagging a few deer were good. But now, with only Doug going out and sticking to our property which is typically being run clean by dogs, the chance to legally bring home some meat is slim.
Most years we are blessed with deer and wild hog meat by friends who live in more populated areas and don't necessarily struggle with the hound issue. So we still get to have good meat, but it's just not the same as it used to be. I often cut up and bag meat by myself now with only "The Thirty Point Buck" song and memories of past deer seasons to keep the season's spirit up. Sometimes Doug will lend a hand if he isn't out hunting or have other work that's more pressing, but he's just not as goofy as most of my brothers are, which makes the whole process rather boring. Instead of the brothers and myself daring each other to eat raw pieces of meat or seeing how fast one can wrap a stack of inch-thick steaks, Doug and I maturely talk about an upcoming project, something one of the kids is doing, or needing to get the dreaded income taxes ready after the end of the year.
I know, once our boys reach the age to where they can start hunting, it will get exciting again and we'll make our own fun memories. And I look forward to that time with every boring slice of meat I cut off the bone and slip into a zip-lock bag. But until then, I better finish up my task at hand before the flies haul of with what little I have left to do. Yet again, we seem to be having a rather warm season which can make meat processing a rather unpleasant experience when it comes to those nasty flies.
Shannon County Minutes
Jeff called the meeting to order Monday, October 30, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.
Members Present: Jeff Cowen, Presiding Commissioner
Dale Counts, Northern Commissioner
Herman Kelly, Southern Commissioner
Shelly McAfee, County Clerk
Visitors: Tina Asplin, Mary Lou Kelso, Larry Johnson, Larry Sandarciero and Chris Young
Commission approved the run-ons and abates to the personal and real estate property valuations prepared by the Assessor's office. (D-Y, H-Y, J-Y)
Commission approved the invoices presented for payment. (D-Y, H-Y, J-Y)
Tina Asplin and Mary Lou Kelso were present to discuss the Birch Tree Golden Age Center and the tax dollar funding it receives. They stated the amount received does not seem fair to them as they do not receive any state funding and rely solely on the tax dollars and sales from meals provided on Thursday evenings. They are still serving over one hundred meals each Thursday evening, as well as offering some services during the days the center is open. They encouraged the commission to determine if the decisions made from the Shannon County Senior Citizens Service Fund Board are being voted on by the entire board and to assist with any additional funding for their senior center if at all possible.
Commission approves CERF retirement withholdings to remain the same as currently elected for the 2018 year. (D-Y, H-Y, J-Y)
Larry Johnson and Larry Sandarciero, Ozark National Scenic Riverways, were present to update the commission on improvements made to the parks since the flooding in April. Mr. Johnson advised the revised roads and trails document would be available for public comment in the next couple of months. No public meetings are scheduled to discuss the new roads and trails plan but they will take public comments for a thirty day period once it is released. The group also discussed the need for updating new rangers to the area concerning gun laws inside the parks. Dale also asked about a new ranger recently issuing a ticket to a local resident because his dog was in the park. Dale explained in the past the rangers have always just called the dog owner and asked them to remove the dog from the park with no tickets being issued. Mr. Johnson stated the park has a leash law but understands it should be at the ranger's discretion and circumstances of each particular incident.
Dale motions to approve the minutes of October 23rd, 2017. Herman seconds the motion. Motion carries with all in favor. (D-Y, H-Y, J-Y)
The courthouse will be closed Friday, November 10th in observance of Veterans Day.
Being no further business, Herman motions to adjourn the meeting at 12:00 p.m. Dale seconds the motion. Motion carries with all in favor. (D-Y, H-Y, J-Y)
The next meeting will be held Monday, November 6th at 9:00 a.m., county courtroom, first floor of the courthouse.

Fire Marshal urges Missourians to check their fire extinguishers after millions are recalled
Recall includes 134 models of Kidde plastic-handle and push-button extinguishers manufactured since 1973 that may not work in an emergency
State Fire Marshal Tim Bean is urging all Missourians to check their fire extinguishers following a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall of almost 38 million Kidde brand fire extinguishers in the U.S. The recall involves two styles of Kidde fire extinguishers – plastic handle fire extinguishers and push-button Pindicator fire extinguishers – representing 134 different models manufactured between 1973 and Aug. 15, 2017.
"Fire extinguishers are life-saving devices and among the most important things in your home and vehicles," State Fire Marshal Tim Bean said. "I urge all Missourians to check all their fire extinguishers so they can be confident they will work when needed. Millions of Kidde brand fire extinguishers are being recalled, and many of them are likely in Missouri."
Consumers can contact Kidde toll-free at 855-271-0773 from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekends, or online at www.kidde.com (click on "Product Safety Recall") for more information.
Thursday's CPSC recall notice links one death to a Kidde extinguisher that did not work properly for emergency personnel at a car fire in 2014. CPSC says there have been almost 400 reports of failures to activate or nozzles detaching with enough force to pose a hazard.
The Kidde fire extinguishers were sold in red, white and silver, and are either ABC- or BC-rated. The recall includes models that were previously recalled in March 2009 and February 2015.
Information on the CPSC recall, including photographs and model numbers, is available on the CPSC website: https://www.cpsc.gov/
Fire Marshal Bean also reminded Missourians to use the extra hour they'll gain when clocks "fall back" on Sunday morning, Nov. 5, to check the batteries and make replacements when necessary in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. The end of Daylight Saving Time serves as an excellent reminder to test these life-saving devices.

We were greeted this Veteran's Day weekend by Dave Anderson, who led us in prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.
We heard a song from a Bressler cd, "The Courthouse Wall", in honor of our fallen veterans.
The Promise was read from Mark 5:36, and Scripture from Matthew 5:13-16.
We celebrated the anniversary of Jack and Betty Burrus, and Bill Fullerton, Jr.'s birthday!
We sang hymns, "America the Beautiful", "Onward Christian Soldiers" and "Give Thanks".
Nancy Ray shared a reading for Veteran's Day, and asked all our veterans to stand up. Thank you for serving! In Children's Church, they made a special gift and presented one to each veteran.
We asked prayers for Julie Duncan, Evan Marks, Donna Bohms, Patsy Coker, Randy Liggett, Brooke Fields and baby, Nikki Watson, Jeannie McConnell, Imogene Blake, Leta Hightower, Charlene Williams, David Smith, Betty Porter, Brooke Keeling Porter and baby, Shirley Powell, Nolan Brewer, Jerry Evans, Terri's parents, sister and co-worker, Mike's parents and their daughter, Dorothy Ennis, Jeremy Fullerton, Texas church shooting victims and families, our military and families, our country and leaders and our church. Mike Svaleson led us in prayer, followed by The Lord's Prayer.
One more special song was played from a Bressler cd, "God Protect America".
Judy Wenzel sang "Keep on the Sunny Side", with congregation participating.
Bill Fullerton, Jr. gave our message today on "Exceptionalism of America". We need to thank all of our veterans, as America would not be exceptional without their service! A little history lesson: The immigrants who came to America in the beginning were brash and aggressive, unlike those remaining in their home country. Immigrants were a different breed! They had bravery, perseverance and had nothing to lose! These founding fathers were men of God! These rag-tag colonists took on the mighty power of England to fight for their freedom! They began every meeting with prayer! George Washington called troops to order with prayer, and ordered them to attend church. He encouraged them to believe in God. God continued to play a big part in the growing of our country. Abraham Lincoln stated once that both the North and the South prayed from the same bible! Throughout the years through WWII, prayer to God was practiced by our military. However, after WWII, as America was rebuilding, people started turning away from God and still do. We must continue to pray for America and encourage people to come back to God!
Our closing songs were "Since Jesus Came into My Heart" and "Old Country Church".
Allen Akers led us in our closing prayer.

It was another great day at the house of the Lord! We had some special guests with us this morning! Thank you to the Schweitzer UMC Puppet Ministry from Springfield for being with us and sharing your muppets with us! The group sang some old fashioned gospel favorites for us and did an outstanding job! Thank you to all of our veterans for their sacrifice and service to our country!
Thank you Pastor Paul for preaching the truth of the Word from Acts 12! God uses persecution in our lives to: 1) Increase our confidence in God's plan 2) Increase our consistency in prayer and 3) Increase our confidence in the ministry God has called us to. God never wastes a pain and our most painful moments lead us to our most greatest ministry.
What's Happening at FBCE: Our church has collected 84 shoe box gifts for Operation Christmas Child! We have a goal of 100 and should reach that by our last day which is this Sunday! Thank you everyone for giving; our "Warriors for Christ" Youth group is growing every week! Thank you to all of our volunteers that make this ministry happen!

Eminence Assembly of God
What a glorious time we had in the house of God this morning! Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty! God's presence was felt throughout the morning service in worship, special singing and the preaching of the word. All of these things prepare us for what God is doing in the altars. If you are tired of dry, dull, doleful church services, or if you are just hungry for more of God, come see us.
Starting next Sunday, November 19th our Sunday evening service will begin at 5 PM. Our Sunday School begins at 10 AM and morning worship service starts at 10:45 AM. Our mid week worship service is on Wednesday night at 7 PM. God is doing some incredible things in our midst; we would love to have you join us. Pentecost is alive and well at the Eminence First Assembly of God. I'll save a seat for you.
The Thanksgiving service will be held Tuesday, November 21st at 6 PM at Church of God of Prophecy.
Where we can be found: in Eminence, just west of the Hwy 19 and 106 intersection. Service is at 11 AM. Pastor David Wentz delivered Foundations of Faith #4 sermon, The Resurrection of the Dead, this morning. Key Verse: I Corinthians 15:53, "Our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies." Each verse, 1-58, of this chapter was emphasized: Jesus really rose from the dead and that matters. First Jesus, then us. His resurrection gives hope, courage and accountability. We will have a new resurrection body and be transformed. In the Lord, our labor is not in vain. I Corinthians 15 was read to us by Trent McBride and Bill O'Donnell, and Crystal Chilton was candlelighter. This being the first Sunday of the month, Communion was served by Pastor David and Sharon Newman. How very sad that as we were worshipping this beautiful fall morning, such carnage was happening in a church in Texas.
Today we celebrated All Saints Day, a time of remembrance and honoring of loved ones who have passed. These people "helped us know you and grow in you." it was prayed, "and may we pass that on and be that someone to others." Six persons were named: Pastor David's father; Rhonda Hunt's cousin, George Redlich, a lifelong devout Christian; Mary and Ora Cooley; Mrs. Carr, Judy Cook's first piano teacher; Carol Smith, Ruthie Smith's sister-in-law; and Clarinda Bailey, grandmother of Terri McBride and sister, Ruthie.
All men of the community are invited to a weekly discussion and prayer breakfast in our Fellowship Hall every Wednesday at 6:00 a.m. "It's worth getting up for," says Pastor David. It was good to see Windy Smith back and able to resume his collection plate duties and to hear Edibeth Ross continues to improve. Prayers were offered for Viola Nichols and Shannon Reary, 95, who is in the Rolla Hospital. Rhonda was happy to have longtime friend Jacque Manakee and friend Jesse Torres here visiting from Chicago this past week. Today was Dollar Sunday, supporting local ministries.
This Sunday we honored our veterans. Our congregation shared special recognition of their family members who have served or are currently serving. Some of our loved ones gave their lives for our freedoms. Doris Medley's father served in WWI and Pastor Wentz and Paula's son Jediddiah is currently serving in the armed forces. Our church family have loved ones who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. We continue to keep those currently serving in prayer and thank them for their commitment to keeping our country safe.
Prayers of healing were for Edibeth Ross and prayers of comfort for the families of Emily Cunningham and Jesse Rainbolt.
Church opened with prayer and the Call to Worship. Hymns were "Ask Ye What Great Things I Know," "My Faith Looks Up to Thee," and "Jesus Hands Were Kind Hands." Paula Wentz read scripture from Acts 8:1-25 which was about the laying of hands. The sermon was 5th in the series Foundation: "Imparting a Blessing," specifically, the laying of hands.
On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit gave the Apostles the gift of healing, just as Jesus had. Today, this spiritual gift has been handed down to our pastors in the United Methodist Church and to all Christians. Touch has been medically proven to promote well being. It also imparts something spiritual as well as physical. When we focus on our faith, the power of the laying of hands becomes stronger. It gives a blessing and comfort. If it is physically impossible to lay hands, it can be done by proxy and by strong faith, just as Jesus healed the Centurion's servant. Every Christian has the authority for the laying of hands, in the name of Jesus. We must ask the person first if they want the laying of hands and then we allow the Holy Spirit to come through us. Pastor Wentz shared his own experiences with the laying of hands on him. Each time he felt something spiritually. We invite all believers to investigate it, learn about it, study it, and talk to others who have experienced it or have given it.
Our service ended with our members hugging each other so we all experienced the comfort and well being through the power of touch!
Please join us Sundays at 11:00. Our members believe in open hearts, open minds, and open doors and we welcome you.
