Clouds Prohibit Local People from Experiencing Full Eclipse
Click Photo to Enlarge  
Although there wasn’t much to see because of the clouds, Shelbina Elementary students were prepared for the eclipse Monday. They still had fun.

If you were in Shelby County for the full eclipse experience, it just didn’t work out very well. The weather didn’t cooperate as cloud cover rolled in just about the time the eclipse started in this area.
   It did get noticeably darker just after 1 p.m. prompting street lights to come on, crickets and secadas started buzzing and it had an overall feel of evening time, just before dark.
   Classes from Shelbina Elementary were outside trying to get a look through their protective glasses, but it was just not happening because of the cloud cover.
   Others from Shelby County traveled farther south and were able to get a look at the eclipse and had a much better experience.

Shelbina City Council Approves Motion to Purchase a Used Back Hoe

The Shelbina City Council approved the purchase of a 2012 John Deere 310SK back hoe during Tuesday night’s regular meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Back Hoe Purchase
   Shelbina City Superintendent Dennis Klusmeyer talked to the council about the 2012 John Deere 310 SK back hoe that they talked about in the previous meeting. It has 1,500 hours on it. The cost of the piece of equipment is $58,300, which Klusmeyer said is about $10,000 less than market value. He said he was finding this make and model anywhere from $68,000 to $82,000. With the old back hoe the City is planning on selling, he’s hoping to do anywhere from six to eight thousand dollars better than trade allowance.
   Klusmeyer said the machine they are planning to purchase is a beefed up machine. He said it would be very ideal for fitting the needs of the City.
   After discussing the matter the council went off of Klusmeyer’s recommendation and approved a motion to go with an out right purchase for the machine.
   Grain Belt Express
   Klusmeyer updated the council of what transpired last week with the public service commission. He talked about the Missouri Public Service Commission’s denial to grant the Grain Belt Express Clean Line, LLC application to construct a transmission line that would bring low-cost clean energy into the state. “What it does for us, as a MoPEP member is we were relying on this to fill an expiring contract in 2021 which was a 100 megawatt contract,” Klusmeyer said.
   “With the Grain Belt Express connection being denied, everything is on hold until the corporation figures out what they are going to do for their next step,” he added.

Kropf Retiring After 29 Years
Click Photo to Enlarge  
Linda Kropf is retiring from the Shelbina Carnage Library after 29 years of service.

After 29 years at the Shelbina Carnage Library, Linda Kropf will be calling it quits. Tuesday will be her last day.
   When asked what her favorite thing about the job is, it’s simple...books. She loves books, she loves working with books, and obviously she is a reader.
   Linda has also enjoyed all of the people who have come in through the years.
   She said the process through the years has changed completely since she attended Library School at the University of Missouri where she got a bachelor’s in Library Science. Now they don’t even offer a bachelor’s degree. It’s a Master’s degree today. “When I got here there was a computer down in the basement that was still in the box. Gladys (Powers) said to leave it for the new girl (Linda) to deal with.
   Kropf explained that through the years they have put all the records on computer. “Everything is electronic now. We used to type out the little cards. The Card Catalogue has changed, all the patrons records...everything is on computer now. “The public computers, the Google, the references of what it used to be,” Linda explained. She said it would have been a little easier if she would have had a little computer training in library school. But she added that it is much more accurate than it used to be.
   Before she worked at the library, Linda was a stay at home mother, so the library has kind of become a second home for her.
   When Linda started working at the Shelbina Library, the west wing was under construction. “C.T. Nugent oversaw all of the construction, and we operated out of the east side of the library. After the completion of the project, Linda was in on the planning and organizing and decision making on how to best utilize the new space that was available in the library.

Cardinals Show Some Firepower in Season-Opening Win Over Brookfield
Click Photo to Enlarge  
South Shelby runningback Brock Wood runs for 20 yards to score a touchdown with 8:23 left in the second quarter.

It looked like it was going to be a repeat of last season’s opener with Brookfield in the early stages of Friday night’s game. A year ago, the South Shelby Cardinals traveled to Brookfield and shot themselves in the foot many times before ultimately coming up short in a 14-7 loss.
   This season, the Cardinals got off to a slow start and trailed early before taking over the game en-route to a 26-14 win Friday night at South Shelby.
   Brookfield took its opening drive and marched to the Cardinal 31 yard line before Brock Wood wrestled away the ball from a Brookfield receiver for an interception, giving the Cards the ball on their own 13 yard line.
   A mishandled exchange on the first play from scrimmage caused a fumble that gave the ball right back to the Bulldogs on the South Shelby 12 yard line.
   Five plays later it was Khalil Walker scoring from two yards out giving Brookfield a 6-0 lead. The point after was no good and that’s how the score stood with 7:55 to play in the opening quarter.
   South Shelby started its next drive from its own 25 yard line. Senior Cody McKenzie busted up the middle for 12 yards on first down. Two plays later Wood raced for 32 yards to the Brookfield 29 yard line. Two plays later on second and seven, McKenzie rambled for 10 yards to the Bulldog 16 yard line. On third down and 14 yards to go, quarterback Dylan Threlkeld hooked up with Ransom Chapin for an eight yard gain down the left sideline setting up fourth and six from the 12 yard line. After a Cardinal timeout, it was McKenzie busting through for a 12 yard touchdown run to pull the Cardinals even. The two point conversion failed and the game was tied 6-6 with two minutes to play in the first quarter.
