Lions Club Honors Steve McIntosh

Shell Knob Lions Club Says Thank You to Steve McIntosh, 7th Congressional District constituent liaison

Shell Knob Lions Club President Steve Crandall gave high praise to Steve McIntosh, the 7th Congressional District constituent liaison representative based out of Joplin, Mo. Richard Nierman, and president Steve Crandall sought help from several sources in achieving the Lions’ Club goal of renovating the CCC park water problems.

The old restroom facilities had deteriorated so badly that it contaminated the well system. Their search for a new water source ran into numerous obstacles in the various federal and state agencies. And then, the Forest Service was reluctant to replace the irreparable restroom facilities although they were doing so with other facilities in the Mark Twain Forest. Frustrated, Richard called Steve McIntosh for help. Steve was able to open many doors by  phone calls to the parties involved and became the “Go-to-Guy” to get the project completed.

Roy Blunt and Steve McIntosh are old school friends and that friendship ultimately lead to Steve joining Roy in his political career. However, Steve maintains his services are not political. He said that if anyone in the 7th district needs help with Federal issues; Social Security, Corps of Engineers, Federal Grants or Farming programs, call him in his Joplin office. The audience greatly appreciated Steve’s presentation on the inner workings of being a representative’s liaison. Several positive comments were made regarding Steve’s past work for this area and the meeting ending with a standing round of applause.

Morning Humor

What’s black and white and red all over? 

 A dead skunk in February in the Ozarks.  Wonder why it is so smelly right now–dead skunk looking for a mate in the middle of the road.


They say that dollar bills are worn out in 18 months, bu I have never seen one that lasted more than a couple of months.


The local sheriff pulled an  Ozark farmer over and said,” Sir, do you realize that your wife fell out of the truck several miles back?  To which the the farmer replied,” Thank goodness, I thought that I had gone deaf!”


MODOT at Work

For the next 3-5 days expect slow downs on the Central Crossing Bridge just south of Shell Knob proper.  MODOT workers are busy filling the cracks/holes in the bridge deck.  Although this event is not posted on MODOT’s website it is significant for larger vehicles and those that travel on a timetable.

Just before the funeral services,
the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked,
‘How old was your husband?’
’98,’ she replied, ‘Two years older than me’
‘So you’re 96,’ the undertaker commented.
She responded , ‘Hardly worth going home, is it?

Reporter interviewing a 104-year-old woman:
‘And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?’ the reporter asked.
She simply replied, ‘No peer pressure.’

The nice thing about being senile is You can hide your own Easter eggs.

The Mature Adult

The Mature Adult by Paula Andersen

Don’t you love that conversation with a loved one-usually an adult child when they call and tell you how hard their life is after you have just put the heating pad on your knees and taken your second dose of pain reliever for the day?

Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional however somewhere in between is ideal.

When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you are down there.

Wisdom comes with age, but by then you have run out of energy to do anything about it.

Time is a great healer but a lousy beautician.

You go for an over night visit at your children’s home and every closet is so full that you can’t fit your shoes in under their clothes.

While you laughed at a lot of blond jokes when you were younger and now that you do not have any hair you think they are DUMB.
