Corps expands Mark Twain Lake restrictions

 


PERRY, Mo.| The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Thursday that it has closed off all access to federally operated public areas of Mark Twain Lake.


The new restrictions are in addition to those announced last week and cover all recreation areas, including boat ramps, day use areas and campgrounds at Mark Twain Lake. In a reversal, the Corps of Engineers said that all camping reservations scheduled through April 30 are now cancelled, and this date may be extended.

Grain Belt stops in-person visits

NEW LONDON, Mo. | Representatives of the Grain Belt Express project said Tuesday morning that they are standing down from making in-person visits to area landowners because of the fight to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus.


The action came less than 24 hours after Krista Mann, director of renewable development, said during a conference call on Monday morning with the Ralls County Commission that Invenergy, the company that owns Grain Belt, would continue to call on landowners in an effort get rights-of-way approval for the project.


Mann said on Tuesday the company reversed course and would not make in-person visits to landowners or county courthouses during the period of social distancing urged by the Centers for Disease Control and an order issued over the weekend by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson.

Parson issues sweeping COVID-19 order impacting daily life in Missouri

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. | Missouri Gov. Mike Parson issue a sweeping order Saturday afternoon to limit public gatherings and social interactions as the state joins the nation's intensified fight against the spread COVID-19 – the coronavirus.


The order, which Parson posted on his Twitter account, falls short of stay-at-home orders issues in California, New York and Illinois, but it does effectively shut down much of restaurant and entertainment industry for the next two weeks, and orders state schools to remain closed until at least April 6.


However, the state's two largest cities – St. Louis and Kansas City – are issuing restrictive stay-at-home rule, which start on Monday.

Paris Rotary suspends meetings; continues to pay Senior Center

Members of the Paris Rotary Club voted on Thursday to suspend meetings temporarily as the nation battles COVID-19, the coronavirus.


 President Glenda Miller said that Rotary Club members decided to follow the request of President Donald Trump and the Centers for Disease Control to limit gatherings to 10 or fewer people.


 Miller said that the club considered finding an alternative location for meetings following a decision by the Paris Senior Citizens Community Center to halt in-house meals.


 "As our members looked for an alternative, everyone realizes that as leaders in the community, we need to set an example," Miller said. "The Monroe County Courthouse is closed to the public for now and Paris RII School District has suspended classes for now. This is the correct decision."

Corps of Engineers cuts most access to Mark Twain Lake

Access to the federal areas of Mark Twain Lake is severely limited because of the coronavirus fight.


The United States Army Corps of Engineers announced last week that Corps facilities at the lake are closed indefinitely, covering all federally controlled facilities and access points.


“This includes boat ramps, day use areas, and camping managed by the agency. Access to the lake is still available at limited locations at this time,” the Corps said in an announcement.


As of Thursday, there was still lake access in the areas controlled by Mark Twain State Park.


“Missouri state park visitor centers, campgrounds and lodging will remain open as we closely monitor COVID-19 and its presence in the state,” said the Missouri State Parks office on its advisory website.

United Way establishes COVID-19 Response Fund

A COVID-19 Response Fund has been created by the United Way of the Mark Twain Area to help partner organizations better serve clients during disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.


 Executive Director Denise Damron said some of the area's most vulnerable individuals have been affected by the precautions that are designed to lower the risk of spreading the virus.


Many of the nutrition centers have stopped congregate feeding and will face new challenges and costs in getting food to clients.


“My understanding is that senior centers get paid for the individuals that come in their doors. They're not going to have those headcounts and these places are needed now more than ever before,” Damron said.


Damron said on Friday that General Mills has donated $7,000 to get the fund launched. United Way will set priorities to distribute the money.
