Haven of the Ozarks

image.pngMeet Jax, the Haven of the Ozarks Pet of the Week!  He’s a really adorable terrier mix who is just under 30 pounds.  He would be considered a senior in terms of years, but no one has told Jax that he’s old yet!  He loves to run, play with toys, fetch balls, go for walks, and get lots of attention.  In fact, he shows absolutely no signs of slowing down at all.  Jax is housetrained, is great with people of all ages, gets along fine with cats, and does well with most other dogs.  A meet and greet is suggested before going home to make sure his new dog siblings are a good match.  Jax is hoping to get back in a real home before the very cold weather gets here, and he’ll make a great addition to nearly any family.  You can meet him at the Haven open 9-4 each day of the week or call 417-835-3647 for more information.

The following well-written article explains the need for volunteers and adds more details about amendment 4


When organizations like the Lions or VFW hold bingo games they need workers. On Nov. 6th we will be able to vote for Amendment 4 to the Missouri constitution which will reduce the waiting time of a member to work bingo from two years to six months.  It also removes advertising restrictions deemed unconstitutional. Please support by voting yes for amendment 4.

Before you think that Bingo doesn’t affect me, or doesn’t matter, let me share a few things about Bingo.  In Missouri, only licensed Non-Profit service organizations can hold bingo games. Any money received by service organizations offering Bingo, over and above the actual cost of conducting the game, is to be used for charitable, religious or philanthropic purposes. Bingo is a Charitable Fund Raiser for our community run by volunteers. State regulation prohibits paid bingo workers.

In 2006, there were approximately 471 Bingo sites in Missouri. Today there are only 224. Many communities have lost out when Bingo sites close because they can’t get enough workers.  When bingos close down, all those charitable donations go away. The two year requirement to be a member of a non-profit organization is having a negative impact across the state. By voting YES for Amendment 4 you will help these organizations keep hosting bingo and keep supporting their communities.   There is no cost to the tax payer to support this amendment. Thank you for your vote.

Wanted An UPWalker Aid-Upright Walker for those with weakening spines

As many that know me three years ago I had back surgery.  I was not happy with the outcome as it left me with a weaken spine. Before the surgery I was walking 2-3 miles a day with a friend.  I am gradually becoming shorter, 1.5 inches to date. I am a volunteer with the Methodist Church Harvest Garden group.  I cannot get around very well because of the uneven ground. I would like to participate more fully in chores like watering the garden and weeding. I need to develop my strength and walking is the best way for the spinal issues I have developed.

Recently I met a woman who was walking very quickly to her car using an device called an UPWALKER. The walker had a place for her to put her computer/tools/books and all she had to do was push it.  The real insight was she was standing almost straight up right.  The lightweight pedestal/chair was really different from other walkers.  Those put a hump in your back to push them forward.  With staples in my spine, I need to stand up and encourage my muscles to strengthen and carry me forward.  This is a plea for any one that has used one or would like to sell, or give one up.  please contact me at 417-342-4599- Paula Andersen.
