Osage Valley Electric Power Outage Reported

Osage Valley Electric Crew customers in an area north of Leeton are currently without power. 

Crews are making repairs to a three phase line and pole that was damaged by a fallen tree. 

Due to wet conditions the pole cannot be accessed with a bucket truck so material is being "walked in" and linemen are climbing the poles to make repairs. Crews will have power restored as quickly as possible.

 Memorial contributions may be made to the Albert Barton Memorial Fund and can be left in care of Vansant-Mills Funeral Home. Condolences and fond memories can be left online at www.vansant-millsfuneralhome.com.

Albert was born in Kansas City, Missouri to Robert Barton and Anna Mae Parmon. Albert lived with his mother in Clinton until 1978, he then went to live with his brother Marion and his wife Geraldine and their 2 boys, Ricky and Richard for 33 years, this was Albert's home. In 2011 due to health reasons Albert went to live in a nursing home, but home would always be that small farm outside of town with Ma and Pa Angel and the boys.

In 1999 Richard and Carol opened up "Carol's Place", little did anyone know, Carol's Place would become Albert's favorite place to go. He would love to dress up in his western attire, right down to the cowboy had and boots and go to Carol's Place to dance with all the Lady's. Albert never knew a stranger, if you walked through the doors of Carol's Place and you didn't know Albert you sure knew him when you left. Anyone and everyone who entered through the doors of Carol's grew to know and love Albert and him them. He never forgot a name or a face.

Albert truly loved live, family and friends.

Albert touched loves and made memories everywhere he went, from the dance floor to the nursing home, a phone call to a truck driver friend just to talk. Albert touched a lot of hearts and will be truly missed.

Albert is preceded in death by both parents, 2 brothers, Keith and David, 1 sister-in-law, Geraldine Angel and 1 nephew, Richard Angel.

Albert is survived by 2 brothers, Marion Angel, Deepwater, Mo, and John (Tammy) Angel, Brumlee, Mo, 1 sister, Kathy (Denver) Stone, Deepwater, Mo, nephew, Ricky (Sherry) Angel, Deepwater, Mo, niece, Jessica (Chisom) Hossle, Clinton, Mo and many other nieces, nephews and a host of friends.

St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office News Release June 24-July 1, 2019

St. Clair County Sheriff Scott Keeler reported deputies made eight arrests and took a stealing report during the week of June 24-July 1, 2019.

View the full report by using the link that we have provided for you below:

If You Feel Different You Drive Different

JEFFERSON CITY – The Fourth of July is one of the deadliest holidays of the year due to substance-impaired driving crashes. Alcohol, illegal drugs and even over-the-counter drugs cause impairment. 

Local law enforcement will be out in full force July 3-7 with increased efforts to seek impaired drivers. No warnings. No excuses. If you drive impaired, you will be arrested. Don’t risk losing your independence by choosing to drive under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

“Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs has serious consequences,” said Nicole Hood, MoDOT highway safety and traffic engineer. “In 2018, law enforcement made 137 substance-impaired driving related arrests during the Fourth of July impaired driving campaign across the state.”

Often, people have a hard time recuperating financially from the cost of an arrest or the crash itself. Violators risk killing or harming others, face jail time, the loss of their driver licenses, higher insurance rates and dozens of other unanticipated expenses from attorney fees, fines and court costs, car towing and repairs, and lost time at work.

There were four people killed and 22 seriously injured in traffic crashes in Missouri over the 2018 July Fourth holiday. Of the 26 people killed or injured, seven were involved in a crash where there was at least one substance-impaired driver.

The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety recommends these simple tips to avoid a drunk-driving disaster:
  • Plan a safe way home before the fun begins.
  • Before drinking, designate a sober driver.
  • If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation so you are sure to get home safely.
  • If you happen to see an impaired driver on the road, don’t hesitate to call local law enforcement.
  • Always wear your seat belt. It’s your best defense in any traffic crash.
Buckle up and put your phone down. For more information, visit www.saveMOlives.com. #BUPD
