The Amish community in Missouri grew.

What does this mean for rural Missouri and community planning?

Dr. Krista EvansDirector of Planning at Missouri State University, has explored these questions in his recent research.

Local student project sparks interest

Evans’ interest in the relationship between the Amish and community planning was sparked while teaching one of her courses, Planning Practicum.

“During a downtown revitalization project with the students of Practicum, Seymour, I learned about the conflicts and issues that exist between the Amish and the English, or non-Amish,” Evans said.

However, among the local community there were also positive perceptions of Amish growth. People looked favorably upon the economic opportunities the Amish brought to the community.

“So I thought, ‘Hey, I need to dig into this. “”

Along the way, Evans discovered a gap in the literature.

“There is a lot of literature in the fields of anthropology and sociology on the Amish, but there is virtually nothing in the field of urban and community planning concerning the Amish,” she said. .

The process

Evans surveyed three Amish communities in rural Missouri: Seymour, Jamesport, and Clark Madison.

She started by talking with three planners and an Amish leader in each community.

“I spoke with planners at the regional, county, and city levels, in addition to a bishop or Amish leader at each case site,” she said. “I wanted to get their perspective on governance and land use issues.”

Fewer regulations, more interest

It turns out that Missouri is a sought-after region for this group of people.

Many counties in Missouri have no zoning or land use regulations, making the area very attractive to the Amish.

“The Amish are very interested in areas where there are very few land use regulations,” she said. “For example, typical zoning regulations might not allow horses in a residential area. No zoning allows the Amish not only to have horses, but also to run businesses away from home and live off the grid.

“Furthermore, the cost of rural land [in Missouri] is relatively affordable, unlike places like Pennsylvania or New York.

Change in cultural interactions

Evans also found that interactions between Amish and non-Amish (English) cultures were increasing.

Their traditional cloistered agrarian way of life is becoming less and less accessible.

It is not economically feasible for everyone to farm, so they turn to trades such as carpentry. “While cultural norms dictate that the Amish remain distinct from mainstream society, economic realities necessitate alternative means of earning a living,” Evans’ study concludes. “As the Amish pursue occupations other than agriculture, increased interaction with non-Amish results.”

Contribution behind the scenes

Many people would assume that the Amish would not participate in local governance or planning processes, but Evans found that to be untrue.

“The Amish actually participate in planning and governance processes; however, they usually do so indirectly. They will make their voices heard if their unique culture is taken into account.

For example, a planner running a community giving event needs to make sure attendees have a place to park horses and buggies, and not rely on cutting-edge technology, like smartphone polling during such events. Steps like these increase the chances of Amish participation in the planning process.

A concept of great importance

Evans’ research will be key to understanding community planning processes that include Amish voices.

“With the high birth rates they have and the number [of Amish] who are starting new communities in the area, we are going to experience significant growth in the Amish presence,” she said. “With this, it is important to understand how community planning processes can be modified to meet the needs of the Amish and English communities.”

Montesano Brew Festival on tap

Festival Saturday in Monte

For many people, one of the most anticipated times of the year in the Pacific Northwest is the transition of the seasons from summer to fall.

From hot, humid summer days on the Washington Coast to crisp fall nights, travelers and locals alike often rave about the color-changing trees and special fall-themed activities. In an East County town, a celebration lets people ring in the start of the fall season: the Monte Brew Festival.

Often held on the first weekend following the transition from summer to fall, the Monte Brew Festival, hosted by the Montesano Chamber of Commerce, is a local tradition for Montesano residents. Dating back to the early 2010s, the Monte Brew Festival brings businesses and breweries together to host a community get-together to kick off the fall season in a relaxed format filled with adult games, music, food and drink .

Jason Atwood, who works for the Montesano Chamber of Commerce and is the lead event planner for the Monte Brew Festival, said a lot of work was needed to plan the 2022 Monte Brew Festival. But, he added , it’s a great opportunity for people to get out and enjoy the change of seasons.

“The Monte Brew Festival is just a fun and lighthearted opportunity for residents of Montesano and the rest of Grays Harbor to come out and support local businesses and enjoy some of the popular brews that populate the entire harbor,” said Atwood. .

As for participating breweries that people can enjoy, Willapa Brewing Company, Hoquiam Brewing Company Inc., Mount Olympus Brewing Company, and Wild Man Brewing Company have signed up for this year’s beer festival. Live music will play throughout the event, featuring Justin Kautzman, Daniel Walker and The Six.

Atwood, who has hosted the Monte Brew Fest for the past four years, said this year’s event will be held on 1st Street and Marcy Street and all brewers will be stationed inside Whitney’s Detail Shop. . He also said that one of the most popular events at the Monte Brew Festival will be the Cornhole Tournament taking place in Fleet Park.

“The cornhole tournament that we organize every year is one of the expected events that gets the community excited. We have about 20-25 teams of two that will be competing in bracket style competition until there is a winning team in the championship round,” Atwood said with a laugh.

“The winning team receives a cash prize in an amount which we have not yet decided but which will be attractive.”

According to Atwood, last year’s amount was around $500. He said he hopes this year’s award will be the same, if not greater. Registration and practice time to participate in the two-team cornhole tournament will begin at 1 p.m. and will cost $20.

Asked about festival attendance, Atwood says it’s normal to see hundreds, if not nearly a thousand people attending the event.

He pointed out that last year’s event was smaller than normal given that there was still a lot of uncertainty about the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions that came with public gatherings. Atwood said that this year seems to be the most normal since the start of the pandemic, he is delighted to see the attention the Monte Brew Festival is receiving.

One of the enthusiastic participants of the festival is none other than Vini Samuel, the mayor of Montesano. She said that this festival is one of the biggest attractions in the city in the fall.

“Apart from the Festival of Lights, the Monte Brew Festival is one of the flagship events of our historic city. I’m thrilled to be a part of it and look forward to spending time with the people we share this beautiful community with,” said Samuel.

While preparations are still underway, corporate sponsors, such as Premier Reality and Whitney’s Detail Shop, are stepping up to help set up the festival.

“The businesses in Montesano and Grays Harbor County are extremely important in helping us bring the Monte Brew Festival to life. Last year we had live music at Pub Monte,” Atwood said. “I know Mount Olympus Brewery are going to be big contributors, we just have to work out the rest of the details.”

For those interested in attending the Monte Brew Festival, pre-sale tickets are available now for $20 and day tickets will be $25. The first 200 tickets sold will include a souvenir cup and all guests must be at least 21 years old to attend. The Monte Brew Festival is scheduled to take place Saturday, September 24 at 2 p.m. at Whitney’s Auto Detail in Montesano.

Sources say Gerard Pique could use honors as ‘bargaining chip’ as Shakira demands return of her Grammys

The relationship between Shakira and her ex, Gerard Pique, seems to be getting worse as the famous athlete holds the Grammy Awards the singer won hostage. The singer has demanded that her ex-husband return them as she fears they will be used as leverage in their custody dispute. During her 30-year career, Shakira has won three Grammy Awards and twelve Latin Grammy Awards.

Gerard Pique holds two Grammys from Shakira hostage during separation proceedings

The trophies, according to RadarOnline, are allegedly in his custody. husband’s alarming allegations were first made by journalist Jordi Martin and were published in an article by Spanish publication La Razon. The article explained how Gerard would use the awards as “bargaining stone” as they negotiated a co-parenting deal.

Jordi said Shakira’s Grammys are still on display in Pique’s office at Kosmos, her production company. He did not return them. He claimed the couple intended to move to Miami with their children, where they would separate and decide who would have custody of the children.

The custody will decide the fate of their children.

According to a person close to Shakira, who was quoted in the Radar article, “She wants only the best for the children and tries to prevent them from hearing and seeing all the horrible things in the news about him, adding that their custody dispute quickly deteriorated from amicable to “messy.”

After more than ten years of marriage, the interpreter of the tube “Hips Don’t Lie” and Gerard announced their separation in June. The couple have two sons: Sasha, 7, and Milan, 9. Since the separation, there has been a lot of speculation about what really happened.

Gerard started dating Clara Chia Marti.

Gerard has let it be known that he has moved on with Clara Chia Marti, his new girlfriend. Many people believe the footballer started dating the 23-year-old model while he was still seeing the singer. When Clara met Pique, she was already committed to her partner and the two kept their relationship a secret, according to insiders. The infidelity accusations were ultimately linked to footage of the altercation shared on social media.

An informant told The Sun that Gerard and Clara had been dating for some time. She is a student who works for him as an event planner at his workplace. Everyone around them is aware of their relationship despite their silence about it. People helped him cover up the relationship and deleted Clara’s social media accounts so no one could find pictures of her online, the source continued. Based on this alone, his buddies come to the conclusion that he’s committed to her.

The Hiring Our Heroes Career Summit event returned to Joint Base Lewis-McChord September 14-15, highlighting current job openings as well as hosting roundtables to help job seekers learn interview skills most important to help them land a meaningful career.

“We’re really glad you’re here,” Adam Rocke, Senior Director of Events and Programs for HOH told the crowd that packed Carey Theater at a morning job seeker session Sept. 15. “Look around, it’s a great audience. It’s one of the best we’ve had, and we’ve always had a great experience here at JBLM and it’s great to be with you all.

The two-day event kicked off with a networking reception at the American Lake Conference Center on September 14. This was followed by a morning forum for job seekers on September 15, culminating in the Career Hiring Summit in the afternoon.

“The uniqueness of HOH is simply that – we host hiring events rather than a job fair or career fair,” said Crystal Kearns, Director of Events and Engagements for HOH. “Our companies are ready to hire. Today, more than 40% will receive a job offer and that’s exciting. On top of that, an additional 40-50% will receive scheduled follow-up interviews.

John Wayne Troxell, who retired from service in the Army as a senior enlisted advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff after serving as the I Corps Command Sergeant Major, was the guest speaker at the event and the HOH brand ambassador.

“We will walk transitioning military members, veterans and military spouses through the steps needed to get a good job worthy of their service, but also empower them to network and continue to create opportunities for growth. , development and employment,” Troxell said. “Make sure they amplify on their resume not just the technical skills of what they’ve done, but their leadership and management skills of their department in the army.

“Second, create a network, go to LinkedIn and contact us. Obtain business cards from potential employers. Last but not least, this is the time for them, and they have to orient their entire career which is based on selfless service, and now they have to build themselves into a marketable personal brand that will be attractive to businesses and corporations.

This year’s HOH event is JBLM’s ninth time, and companies and organizations in attendance sent their representatives ready to hire job seekers.

“As a retired soldier myself, companies welcome you with open arms, they appreciate the leadership, they appreciate the organization and the speed we bring to the table,” said Ellis Berthiaume, one hiring companies. “So as an operations manager for one of these companies at this HOH event, that’s what I’m looking for, to bring the same to our company.”

Kearns was asked why employers are drawn to the military community and explained the flexibility they bring to the table.

“I would say adaptability,” Kearns said. “Our military community is nimble. We are able to adapt and overcome many challenges and this translates into the workforce. You might have a conflict at work, you adapt, you resolve it, you overcome it. You might face a challenge at work, whether it’s a technical challenge or a soft skills type challenge, and you adapt and overcome. So I would say that the agility and adaptability of our military community is second to none.

Kearns also shared his top tips for service members, veterans and spouses at the hiring event.

“Network – build your network,” Kearns said. “You never know where you’re going to be in a few years. Let’s face it, every person who joins the military will one day get out of the military. So even if you still plan on pursuing your military career, build those networks, come to events and meet new people, connect with them, connect through LinkedIn, maintain those relationships because one day you will leave the military.

For I Corps Headquarters Lt. Col. Joseph Harrison, who is soon to retire, he said he wants to get a job before his terminal leave ends in a month.

“Essentially, I’m trying to translate my military experiences as an operational and program planner into civilian employment at this hiring event,” Harrison said. “I attended the job search session, and it was great, especially the LinkedIn development and CV development workshops offered by HOH are very helpful.”

For Air Force wife Caroline Pomiroy, who has spent the past eight years living overseas, her experience at the event was positive.

“I got a lot of information,” she said. “I asked a lot how I could transfer my skills to different positions because I have different experiences in different places, so it’s hard to just focus on a certain job. I am looking for a job that will allow me to live a balanced life. I want to spend time with my children and my husband, but I also want to work so that must be fine with me.

“I found a job that I’m really interested in, and they said they were very flexible and maybe they could work with me on whatever hours worked for me, so it’s pretty awesome to To hear.”

According to their website, HOH has helped hundreds of thousands of transitioning military members, veterans, and military spouses find meaningful employment through their comprehensive training and employment events, scholarship programs, and their online tools.

The float from Blue Mingo, Mingo Market, Sam Smith’s Boatyard and Lake Classic Outfitters won the grand prize of $1,000.

“As part of our 25th anniversary, we thought it was only fitting to do something to celebrate all the support the Cooperstown business community has given us over the years,” said Tim Holmes , event organizer of Ommegang Brewery.

“We started with a kick-off the previous Friday evening with an open invitation to a social gathering around his well-known hearth,” Mr Holmes said. “The evening ended with a strong and colorful fireworks display.”

Next is the parade on Main Street in Cooperstown.

“Company participation could be as simple as carrying a banner or as complex as designing an entire float,” Mr. Holmes said. The goal, he said, was just to have a fun parade.

“It was not meant to be as grand an event as the Induction Day Parade, nor was Ommegang’s intention to shut down the entire city,” he said.

On Saturday, traffic was brought to a halt by the blaring sirens of Cooperstown Police followed by the Cooperstown and Milford Fire Departments to announce the start of the walk.

As part of this introduction, the Leatherstocking Trolley was filled with an enthusiastic contingent of the 316th Military Police Detachment from Los Angeles, California.

The start of the parade was the ubiquitous Ommegang Food Truck, followed immediately by the brewery float, which welcomed Bourbon & Branch from Cooperstown blasting their tunes.

Then it was time for participating companies to strut their stuff.

The management of Upstate Bar and Grill managed to lift the bull statue that usually adorns their premises onto a platter, followed by Bocca Osteria’s portable pizza maker.

“We had a great time,” said Joe Vezza, owner of Bocca Osteria and Upstate Bar and Grill. “It was a family project. We think the community/village should do more things like this; we would love to participate in other events,” he said.

Then came an unmistakable bright yellow sunflower car representing the Sunflower Café in Springfield Center, with Cheryl Zambelis at the wheel. What a delight!

Tin Bin Alley then showcased its collection of colorful windmills, followed by two energetic bicycle pumps atop a tray depicting Milford’s railroad explorers.

The Susquehanna SPCA float featured a giant beagle character, along with some of its four-legged residents available for adoption.

And the whole parade was accompanied by a float from Blue Mingo, Mingo Market, Sam Smith’s Shipyard and Lake Classic Outfitters. Very involved, intriguing and brilliant.

“Our thanks to Brewery Ommegang for organizing this wonderful parade,” said Julian Gialanella, General Manager of Blue Mingo, Mingo Market, Sam Smith’s Boatyard and Lake Classic Outfitters.

“Our team had a fantastic time putting together our multi-faceted float and it was a great team building and morale building project. From our chef Illario Mulas who cooks and hands out hot dogs to little Brixton Greer who salute the Dirty Bird, a 123 year old locally built boat, it was a truly exceptional experience,” said Mr. Gialanella. “All had a great time and the outpouring of support from the community made it a very special day. .”

Prior to the event, Ommegang had announced a prize of $1,000 for the best float chosen by its staff, and this prize was awarded to the Blue Mingo float, Mingo Market, Sam Smith’s Boatyard and Lake Classic Outfitters.

The riders on each of the floats of course cheered, laughed and waved at the crowd, but in addition to their decorations, all the floats were loaded with sweets and other treats which were thrown into the crowd,

In 28 minutes, the parade was over, but in that short time was a focused and fun experience that accomplished exactly what all of Ommegang’s management had hoped to achieve – an informal yet highly memorable celebration. And it was memorable.

The anniversary weekend ended with a pub crawl.

“Local bars and restaurants participated in serving Ommegang beers,” Mr Holmes said. “Entrants received a ‘Pub Passport’, sampled Ommegang beers, then took the passport to Ommegang for a chance to win a prize.”

It’s time for another group of strangers to outsmart, outdo, and outlast each other. Survivor Season 43 premieres Sept. 21 in a two-hour premiere on CBS. While the remote conditions, challenges, and conflicts made the competition series a success, we can’t overlook the people who bring it all to life: the cast.

The 18 contestants are vying for the chance to win $1 million on the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji. Jeff Probst, the only host Survivor has ever known, is back, and said (opens in a new tab) this season they will examine “how the society they form directly impacts the game they play”. Remember that the Sole Survivor isn’t just an exceptional player; they must also convince the jury to give them the prize money.

On September 2, Eliza Fletcher, 34, was abducted and killed. On Saturday, she will be buried.

The Eliza Fletcher’s funeral will be held Saturday at the Memphis church where she met and married her husband, her family has revealed.

Last week, the beloved 34-year-old kindergarten teacher was abducted and killed while on her regular 4.30am run around Memphis. Cleotha Abston, a 38-year-old career criminal who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for kidnapping, was charged with killing the victim.

His funeral will be held at Second Presbyterian Church on Friday at 10 a.m., the family announced Thursday.

Richard and Fletcher met in the chapel, where they later exchanged vows in March 2014.

The couple became parents to what their obituary describes as “two exuberant and cheerful boys, Richard James Fletcher IV and Harry Wellford Fletcher”.

The obituary read: “She loved her family fiercely and unconditionally. Together as a family they enjoyed outdoor adventures including boating, water sports, hiking, running and biking. She was deeply admired by her family and friends for her passionate dedication to motherhood.

The family also praised her great faith.

“She truly walked and molded the Christian life and trusted her unwavering faith,” they wrote.

“Liza was a light to all who knew her. Her smile and infectious laugh could brighten up any room. Liza was pure in heart and innocent in a way that made her see the best in everyone she met. To know her was to love her and to be loved by her.

They noted the massive interest in her storyand his untimely death.

“His impact is extraordinary, as evidenced by prayer groups, vigils held with friends and family, gatherings at church and school, and memorial runs and walks held in his honor,” they said. they wrote.

Eliza Fletcher, 34, was last seen around 4:20 a.m. Friday while jogging in Memphis and a man approached her and forced her into an SUV after a brief struggle, police said.

“The outpouring of love and heartbreak would have surprised Liza, who never thought or acted like she was anything special – although she certainly was.”

The family is asking anyone wishing to contribute to donate to a fund established in her memory at St Mary’s Episcopal School, where she taught, or the church that has played such a big part in her life.

Memphis magazine declared her wedding the “wedding of the year”.

After the ceremony at the church, the couple hosted their reception at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, with a rustic woodland theme under a light marquee lined with fairy lights.

Fletcher, whose grandfather founded a $3.2 billion Memphis-based hardware distributor last year, wanted the wedding to reflect his outdoor personality.

Guests were treated to a champagne and seafood bar, bluegrass musicians in the woods, and an interior described by Memphis magazine as “a wonderland of flowers and ferns falling from the ceiling”.

An Alabama-based artist, Ronald Bayens, was commissioned to paint the event as it unfolded.

“There hasn’t been another wedding like this in Memphis,” said the wedding planning team, Russell and Ruthie Events.

Cleotha Abston, 38, has appeared in court for the first degree murder of Eliza Fletcher, 34, and could face the death penalty.  He has yet to plead the charges against him, but his public defender is considering a gag order

On Thursday, Abston appeared in court in Memphis, Tennessee, charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping and tampering with evidence – with the judge again denying him bail until another hearing on September 19.

Jennifer Case, his public defender, initially argued there was a conflict of interest in her representing him, as her office had worked with him in a previous criminal case in the early 2000s.

However, the case was dismissed by the judge, Louis Montesi Jr, although he agreed to hear his arguments for a gag order at a later hearing.

Case argued aspects of the case should not be made public, after Memphis Police Chief CJ David called Abston a “dangerous predator”.

Tennessee is a death penalty state and prosecutors said Thursday they would not rule him out if convicted.

Abston wore a green prison-issued uniform and mask, and spoke to his public defender only during the brief hearing.
