The annual Memorial Day Service was held at the Shelbina American Legion Hall on Monday.

It was a beautiful day, a very nice service and a pretty good crowd for the annual Memorial Day Service that was held Monday at the Shelbina American Legion Hall.
   Phil Leatherman not only conducted the ceremony, but served as the main speaker as well.
   The service opened with a prayer by Charles Hawkins, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance.
   Leatherman then explained all the POW/MIA Remembrance Table and what everything symbolized.
   That was followed by Leatherman reading a letter from the National Commander Dale Bennett.
   He stated in his letter “To all of my brothers and sisters in The American Legion Family, take time this Memorial Day weekend to help remind all Americans that freedom is not free. There is a price for the liberties we enjoy. We know that the true meaning of this holiday is much more than barbecues, picnics and mattress sales,” Barnett said.
   After the Post Memorial Pledge, Tracy Smith led those in attendance in two songs, “God Bless America” and “America The Beautiful.”
   Leatherman recognized those who received 60 years of continuous membership with the American Legion. They were Leroy Adams, Billy G. Moore, Hiram Greenwell, Rogers Hewitt, Dwaine Snider and Charles Dodd.
   He then recognized the following for the Memorial Service and Remembrance. Those named were Walter (Tony) Grawe, James Looney, J.A. Buckman, Ben Broughton, Leon Ralls, Billy Garrison, Charles “Doc” Lichty, Bill Clapper, Kenny Power, and Harold Wiseman.

A Closer Look at the Shelbina Improvement Plan

The Shelbina City Council passed a motion in last week’s regular meeting to proceed with the City Improvement Project that has been discussed for the last several months. This article will provide more detail on how the project will work.
   Back in September of 2015 the City contracted with Schneider Electric work as the City’s Energy Service Company or ESCO for short. The purpose of this agreement was to do a study to determine if there is sufficient gaps that could be bridged to modernize the City’s metering system, upgrade street lighting, and upgrade building lighting, internal and external, also reviewing other operational processes that could be improved within the City. The purpose of the ESCO was to evaluate how making these changes would financially benefit the City. Can the project pay of itself in a defined period of time. The representatives from Schneider the City has been working with are Peter Hinkle and Drew Seblius and they provided the details used for the article.
   The purpose of the City Improvement project is to modernize infrastructure so the City can continue to provide quality service to the community while gaining efficiencies that will create savings to pay for the materials, installation and technology while receiving a payback to the City. While the project will not result in reduced utility rates for the customers the goal is to not increase the utility rates and eventually use savings to help offset raw utility cost that we pay to our suppliers.
   The final project scope of work will consist of the replacement of all water meters, all electric meters and the retrofitting of all gas meters with a radio transmitter that will allow the meters to be read by an Automated Meter Reader. AMI metering is advanced metering infrastructure, and is an integrated system of smart meters, communications networks and data management system that enables two-way communication between utilities and the utility provider. AMR metering is automatic meter reading, which is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic, and status data from water meter or energy metering (gas and electric) and transmitting that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting and analyzing.

A one-vehicle accident involving a Shelby County Sheriff’s vehicle left an officer with minor injuries at around 10:15 p.m. on Thursday, May 26, on Highway 36, a half-mile east of Lakenan.
   According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the 2010 Ford Crown Victoria driven by 32-year-old Christopher A. Ehrenreich was eastbound attempting to overtake a vehicle when he lost control on the wet roadway. The vehicle slid off the right side of the road, struck an embankment, and came to rest in a ditch.
   Ehrenreich sought his own treatment and was wearing his seat belt, according to the patrol. The vehicle was totaled as a result of the accident.
