Hermann Missouri Elementary School, Music Teacher K-4 to Retire After 32 Years of Service


___________________________________________________________________________________
The Gasconade County R-1 Board of Education last night accepted the retirement 
announcement of  Ketha Bounds (Elementary School, Music K-4)

Ms. Bounds taught for 32 years at Hermann Elementary.

Here is a story from a former student!!!

She’s Got the Beat Teacher Feature: Mrs. Ketha Bounds
by: Kelly Brethorst, 10
Mrs. Ketha Bounds is a music teacher at Hermann Elementary School. She works with students from kindergarten to fourth grade. She received her bachelor’s degree in Music Education, Kindergarten through 12th grade, Vocal and Instrumental at Central Methodist College in Fayette, Mo. She’s taught at the Morgan County R-1 School District in Stover, Mo., for one year, and has been teaching in Hermann for the past 30 years. Over all she’s been a teacher for thirty one years.
As a child, she admired her teachers tremendously. Music really influenced her; as a kid it had positively impacted her life so she chose teaching as a career. “Music can enrich the lives of students, and can provide wonderful experiences for those who choose to participate in it,” said Bounds.
When she’s teaching she enjoys seeing the students’ faces when they get excited about what they’re studying, or even when they’re performing. Although they put a lot of hard work into a performance, the excitement and enthusiasm from the students make it all worthwhile. When she’s not teaching, she’s playing her piano, reading or just being with her family.
The strengths at both the elementary school and middle school are the very dedicated, caring, compassionate teachers and staff members she gets to work with day in and day out. There are parent volunteers that help out with their programs, “We have some incredible parents and community members,” said Bounds. She also said that she appreciates the support and generosity of her staff members, members of the community, and the parents. “It’s been wonderful getting to know them!”
Mrs. Bounds has a family who’s also dedicated to music and says it’s an important part of their family. Her husband, Carl, teaches Spanish and is the band director in the New Haven School District “Go Marching Shamrocks!” he said. Their son Aaron is the band director at East Central College. He teaches concert band, jazz band and music theory/history classes. Aaron’s wife, Emily, teaches middle school choir and general music at Owensville Middle School. Ketha and Carl’s daughter, Kara, is currently student teaching at Branson High School; she’s going to school and studying to be a vocal music teacher.
A fun fact Bounds would like to share with the community is that she grew up on a farm near Clark, Mo. As a kid she spent a lot of time riding horses, driving tractors, and building fences with her father. She says that part of the farm has been in her family for more than 100 years!
At the end of the day, Bounds is very blessed, she enjoys teaching and she loves what she teaches.

$1.81 when Obama took office...Gas up $1 a gallon on President's watch


Gasoline prices are displayed on a sign at a filling station in Oakland, Calif.

Gas up $1 a gallon on Obama's watch

Gas prices have risen $1 since just after President Obama took office in January 2009 and are now closing in on the $3 mark, prompting an evaluation of the administration's energy record and calls for the White House to open more U.S. land for oil exploration.

The average price per gallon across the U.S. hit $2.81 this week, according to the Energy Information Administration. That was up from $1.81 the week of Jan. 26, 2009, just after the inauguration, and marks the highest price since Oct. 20, 2008.

Missouri Budget Woes Will Affect Road Snow-Removal This Winter


___________________________________________________________________________________

For Missouri snow-removal crews, the goal is now 'passable'

This winter, Missouri snowplow crews are charged with making highways "passable," not necessarily clear.

Missouri Department of Transportation officials cite a tight budget and flat fuel tax receipts for the change.

They promise smarter use of equipment and technology but acknowledge it will mean fewer sweeps by plow trucks along highways, particularly on those less-traveled.

The first test could come this weekend, when the National Weather Service expects rain Saturday followed by an inch or less of snow. The big storm is expected to stay far to the north. But temperatures are forecast to fall from the high 40s into the teens by Saturday evening, made worse by high winds — creating the threat for ice on the highways.

Missouri Faces Many Budget Challenges in 2011 - Governor's Budget Summary Plan


__________________________________________________________________________________
Jay Nixon, Governor
Kelvin L. Simmons, Commissioner
_________________________________________________________________________________

THE MISSOURI BUDGET
FISCAL YEAR 2011
SUMMARY


OVERVIEW

Even though Missouri is in better shape than
most other states, tough budget challenges
remain.

The national and international
economic crisis has caused revenue to
continue its downward spiral, reaching historic
rates of decline in the previous and current
fiscal years.

The decline in revenues has
been so severe that collections will remain
below Fiscal Year 2006 levels.

Revenue forecasters predict a modest increase for Fiscal
Year 2011 but not enough to prevent additional
cuts and continue the fiscal restraint necessary
to keep the Missouri Budget balanced.

Governor Nixon’s Fiscal Year 2011 Budget
continues his commitment to provide resources
necessary to foster job creation for Missouri’s
economy; maintain funds for elementary and
secondary education; make higher education
more affordable; improve the delivery of health
care to Missourians; and make state
government more efficient.

Economy

Governor Nixon’s top priority is to turn
Missouri’s economy around by creating jobs.
Missouri must encourage entrepreneurship and
small-business growth; enhance workforce
training; and embrace emerging science and
technology — critical industries of tomorrow.

Last fall, the Governor led a listening tour
around the state to hear directly from local
Missouri businesses, both large and small,
about their needs, their aspirations and their
challenges.

The feedback from that tour formed
the framework of the Governor’s 2010 Jobs
Plan. The plan will:

UPDATED Dec 19, 2010: Gasconade County Missouri Commissioners Take Care of Their Own Employees


___________________________________________________________________________________
Dec.10, 2010
The Gasconade County Commissioners decided (Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010) to pay all of $79,488 in higher heath care benefits, which is a better deal than paying for Lawyer fees of an ex-commissioner, like they decided to do in their last meeting!
___________________________________________________________________________

UPDATE Dec.19, 2010:
The December 15th edition of The Hermann Advertiser-Courier reported on Dec. 15, 2010:
 County approves medical premiums for employees




In what they expect will be another year without a pay increase, the Gasconade County Commission voted 2-0 last Thursday to pay full medical and dental premiums for its employees.   

The commissioners debated the county's health care insurance issue before Matt Penning made a motion to approve paying the full premium for employees. He said since they haven't received a pay raise in several years, they deserved this benefit.     

Commissioner Jerry Lairmore said he couldn't make a second to Penning's motion because of his concerns with a tight budget, and couldn't commit to paying the full amount of the premium.    "If this revenue is not where you said it is going to be, we are in trouble," said Lairmore.     

Ron Jost, presiding commissioner, then made a second to Penning's motion, and Lairmore said he would abstain from the voting.

HERMANN MO NEWS ALERT - PLEASE NOTE: 
Attorney fees for Commissioner Jerry Lairmore have recently been paid for by the county.

Higher Oil Prices Were Predicted in September 2010 and they Will Go Higher This Winter


___________________________________________________________________________________
Higher Oil Prices Were Predicted in September 2010 Due to Federal Reserve manipulations

Crude oil tipped to bubble over $100 a barrel

For the first time in two years, oil bulls are starting to outnumber bears.

The bulls’ push comes as the oil market is experiencing a “demand shock”, with consumption growth this year accelerating to almost its highest rate in 30 years.

This unexpected boom in demand has lifted benchmark oil prices sharply higher, to a 26-month high of more than $90 a barrel on Tuesday. Some traders believe the market could jump to $100 within weeks.

Traders and analysts are divided on the outlook for oil, even if the bulls are in command.

The bullish sentiment contrasts with the mood in oil markets three months ago, when physical traders – who arguably have better intelligence than anyone else – thought prices were unlikely to rise further in 2011 and felt consumption growth was lackluster.
