Ameren encourages customers to protect themselves and save money as temperatures rise
6/14/2024

With near triple-digit temperatures in the forecast, Ameren is providing some suggestions to help customers stay safe and cool while keeping energy costs low.

“Extreme heat comes with health and safety concerns, and that’s why we want our customers to be aware and take action to protect themselves,” said Tony Lozano, director of energy efficiency and demand response at Ameren. “Staying hydrated, taking breaks and running the AC are important steps to take during this stretch of high temperatures.”

Customers can ensure their homes stay comfortable while increasing energy efficiency by following these simple tips:

  • Adjust your thermostat – Save up to 12% on your cooling costs by programming a smart thermostat. In the summer months, raising your thermostat to the recommended temperature of 78 degrees will use less energy.
  • Replace your HVAC filter – Replacing your furnace filter every three months can save you up to 15% and will help your furnace run efficiently. A dirty filter also allows dander, mold and dust to circulate throughout your home.
  • Seal your home – Keep the air conditioning indoors by caulking and weatherstripping your doors, windows, along molding and around electrical sockets and switches. Caulk, weatherstripping and window film kits are easy and inexpensive DIY options that can save you up to 30%.
  • Set your ceiling fan Set your ceiling fan to rotate counterclockwise in the summer so you feel cooler. This simple change can help you save up to 15% on your energy costs.
  • Use your grill – Grilling outside instead of using your stove not only helps you use less energy but also keeps your home cooler. You can also save by using a small appliance, such as an air fryer.

If customers do not have an air-conditioned place to stay, visit a cooling center in Missouri or Illinois to take a break from the heat.

Extreme summer heat also poses safety concerns when spending time outside. To avoid overheating, keep these guidelines in mind:

  • Stay hydrated – Drink 8 ounces of water every 15-20 minutes when spending time outdoors.
  • Take breaks If you must be outside for extended periods, take breaks in the shade or indoors to avoid overexertion and overheating.
  • Dress for the heat Wear light, loose clothing and consider UPF clothes for added UV protection while outside.

Visit AmerenMissouri.com/EnergyAssistance or AmerenIllinois.com/EnergyAssistance for details on the variety of programs available to help customers offset energy costs this summer. Rebates and savings opportunities on energy-saving products are available at AmerenMissouriSavings.com and AmerenIllinoisSavings.com.

Registration for 2024 Upper Mississippi Waterfowl Blind Drawings opens June 15
6/14/2024

The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will open the 2024 registration for hunting blind sites on the Upper Mississippi Conservation Area (UMCA) restricted waterfowl hunting zone from June 15-June 30.  All blind site draws will be conducted electronically.  The random electronic drawing to award the blind sites will be held July 2.  After the drawing is performed, successful applicants will be notified via email. Applicants may only be assigned to one blind site.  From July 3-14, those applicants may choose up to three co-registrants to occupy the blind site with them.

All applicants need to obtain proper hunting permits, a conservation ID number, an email address, and a phone number to register.  In addition:

  • All applicants must be at least 16 years old
  • Those between age 16 and 64 are required to have a current annual resident or nonresident Small Game Hunting Permit and a Missouri Migratory Bird Hunting Permit
  • Any honorably discharged military veteran having a service-related disability of sixty percent (60%) or greater, or was a prisoner of war during military service, or any member of the U.S. military currently assigned as a patient to a Warrior Transition Brigade, Warrior Transition Unit, or a military medical center, will only need a Missouri Migratory Bird Hunting Permit.
  • Missouri resident hunters age 65 or over only need to have a Missouri Migratory Bird Hunting Permit

Should any blind sites be relinquished after the initial drawing, a redraw registration period will open Aug. 5-18, with the redraw occurring Aug. 20.  Co-registration period will then be Aug. 21-31.

Hunters should note that this will be the last blind drawing for the UMCA.  Starting with the 2026 waterfowl hunting season, recently adopted regulation changes call for the blind drawing system to be discontinued and the UMCA to transition to open pool hunting only at that time. As a result of this change, as of 2026 the restricted portion of the UMCA will follow statewide regulations for open pool hunting regarding decoys and blinds.  Boat blinds and temporary blinds will still be allowed.

For more information, call the Upper Mississippi Conservation Area at 573-898-5905, or the MDC St. Louis Regional Office at 636-441-4554.

For more details, to register for the drawing, and view interactive pool maps of the blind sites, go to https://short.mdc.mo.gov/Zh9.  

The Upper Mississippi Conservation Area includes federal lands along the Mississippi River north of St. Louis. These federal lands include Pools 24, 25, and 26 and consist of 87 separate tracts totaling 12,500 acres between Melvin Price Lock and Dam and LaGrange, Missouri.

Choosing Your First Hunting Dog program June 29 at Busch Shooting Range will help hunters find an ideal canine
6/13/2024

“This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship” is a line made famous in the classic film Casablanca.  However, it can also apply when welcoming a new hunting dog into the family.

People and dogs have been hunting partners for some 20,000 years.  In fact, dogs were likely the very first animals that humans ever domesticated. 

There are a number of things to consider before starting that “beautiful friendship.”.  The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will host a special free program, Choosing Your First Hunting Dog, Saturday, June 29 from 9 - 11 a.m. at the August. A. Busch Shooting Range and Outdoor Education Center in Defiance.  The free program is open to ages nine and up.

According to the American Kennel Club, today there are 30 officially recognized sporting dog breeds.  Dogs from other breeds can also be trained as helpful hunting companions. 

For anyone thinking of getting their first canine hunting partner, this class will explore the responsibilities of having a hunting dog, how to pick out the right dog, and what goes into training.  It will cover questions to ask the breeder, qualities of the various breeds, pedigrees, and more.

The event will also include a live demonstration with retrieving dogs.

“Hunting waterfowl and upland game is great fun but having your own hunting dog makes the hunts even more enjoyable,” said MDC Outdoor Education Center Manager Bryant Hertel.  “Plus, you have a hunting buddy and family member who goes on the hunts with you.”

Waterfowl hunting aided by the unique abilities of a dog can add a lot to the enjoyment to the hunt.  The dog’s keen sense of smell and special talents for tracking down prey will also help reduce the chance of losing a wounded bird.  Whether a terrier, gun dog, hound, or retriever, finding the right canine friend for hunting can truly be the start of a beautiful relationship, both in the field and at home.

Choosing Your First Hunting Dog is a free class; however, advanced online registration is required at http://short.mdc.mo.gov/4L5.

The August A. Busch Shooting Range and Outdoor Education Center is located at 3550 Route D, approximately five miles west of Highway 94.

MDC biologists say bears on the move now; don’t feed them, take precautions when camping
6/11/2024

The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reminds St. Louis region residents that June is a time when bears are on the move. MDC has been getting multiple reports of black bears being sighted in the St. Louis region within the last month.   It’s common for MDC to receive reports of bears in counties like Jefferson, Franklin, Washington, and Crawford.  Black bears are becoming a growing part of the St. Louis regional landscape, even at times in highly populated areas such as St. Louis and St. Charles counties. 

MDC’s ongoing bear research indicates the Show-Me-State is currently home to around 990 black bears, and that population is growing by 8% each year.   Only one species can be found in this state—the American black bear (Ursus americanus)—though multiple color phases can be found in Missouri such that a bear’s fur can be brown, red, or cinnamon in color.

Most of our bears live in the southern part Missouri, according to MDC wildlife biologists, which is where the largest tracts of forested habitat are.  

However, research also confirms the population is expanding, both in total numbers and range, which accounts for the uptick in sightings in recent years. As the population grows and expands, bears are showing up in areas further north.  Late spring/early summer is prime time for bears to be on the move. Young bears begin to wander seeking food and new areas to settle and adult males begin moving large distances in search of females.

With an expanding population of bears comes an increased potential of human-bear interactions.  While generally not aggressive, like any wild animal black bears are driven to find food.  It takes a lot of calories to fuel an animal that typically weighs several hundred pounds, and they can be attracted to a variety of food sources this time of year.

Food, or rather the lack of it, is key to avoiding conflicts with bears.  The last thing homeowners should do is tempt them with any sort of food source, whether it be intentionally or unintentionally.  Feeding bears can be dangerous as it makes the bears comfortable around people. It can also lead bears to cause significant damage to property while searching for a meal.

A bear that becomes accustomed to obtaining food from humans can become a problem which could result in an increased number of encounters, property damage, bold behavior, and ultimately the euthanizing of the bear. These types of situations can be prevented by ensuring bears don’t have access to easy foods.

MDC suggests the following tips to avoid issues if a bear has been sighted in the area.

  • Store garbage, recyclables, and compost inside a secure building or in a bear-proof container or location.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect trash containers to minimize smells that could attract bears.
  • Keep grills and smokers clean and store them inside.
  • Don’t leave pet food outside. Feed pets a portion at each meal and remove the empty containers.
  • Refrain from using birdfeeders in bear country from April through November. If in use, hang them at least 10 feet high and 4 feet away from any structure. Keep in mind that even if a bear cannot get to the birdseed, the scent could still attract it to the area.
  • Use electric fencing to keep bears away from beehives, chicken coops, vegetable gardens, orchards, and other potential food sources.

These measures will also reduce problems with more common critters like raccoons and coyotes.

While black bears are generally a shy, non-aggressive species and bear attacks are rare throughout their range in North America, MDC offers these tips to stay safe when hiking and camping in bear country:

  • Never deliberately offer a bear food!
  • Keep campsites clean and store all food, toiletries, and trash in a secure vehicle or strung high between two trees.
  • Do not keep food or toiletries in a tent, and do not burn or bury garbage or food waste.
  • While hiking, make noise, such as clapping, singing, or talking loudly, to prevent surprising a bear.
  • Travel in a group if possible.
  • Keep dogs leashed.
  • If hiking or camping in bear country, consider carrying bear spray. Read the instructions carefully and keep bear spray immediately available on your belt or your pack’s waist strap, not buried inside your pack.
  • Be aware of surroundings. If there are signs of a bear, such as tracks or scat, avoid the area.
  • Leave bears alone! Do not approach them, and make sure they have an escape route.

With a few sensible measures, it’s possible to welcome back Missouri’s black bears as our neighbors in the wild, without inviting them to the dinner table.

In addition to directly educating Missourians on how to Be Bear Aware about black bears in the state, MDC is also affiliated with the BearWise® program. BearWise is a multi-state education effort developed by black bear biologists and supported by state wildlife agencies, such as MDC, that provides sound information and smart solutions that help people, neighborhoods, and communities prevent problems with black bears and keep bears wild. BearWise shares ways to prevent conflicts, provides resources to resolve problems, and encourages community initiatives to keep bears wild. Learn more at BearWise.org.

The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act is being allowed to expire and Senator Josh Hawley is not happy about it. The reauthorization of RECA needed to be approved by Congress by today but with this Friday off it appears reauthorization won't happen.

ECC Purchases Rolla USGS Building; State Funds to Fuel Renovations
6/7/2024

East Central College Thursday announced the acquisition of a building in Rolla, providing the opportunity for the college to consolidate its operations into a single facility.

State funds specifically appropriated for the project were used for the purchase.

College officials said a single, comprehensive facility will better serve students and enable ECC to grow its programs and services.

ECC purchased the building that now houses the United States Geological Survey operations in Rolla. The purchase price was $5.1 million. The 107,000 square-foot facility is located at 1400 Independence in Rolla.

The USGS has operated in the building since 1974. The agency will continue to operate in the facility at least until February 2025 through its current lease. That may be extended, as ECC begins work to design the renovation of the facility for use as a community college.

“This is a momentous and historic time for East Central College and the Phelps County region,” said Dr. Jon Bauer, ECC president. “Rolla is a key strategic priority for us to greatly enhance educational opportunities throughout the ECC service region. Our mission is to better the lives of our community members through education, and this is a big step forward to accomplishing that goal.”

ECC, a comprehensive community college based in Union, has operated in Rolla since 1995 and currently operates in two facilities. The college leases space from the Rolla Public Schools at the Rolla Technical Center and leases a building located at 2303 North Bishop Road. The College will move out of the two spaces once its newly acquired facility is fully renovated.

The engineering firm Cochran, based in Union, was utilized to assess the building for renovation and construction costs. A preliminary schedule calls for renovations to begin in mid-2025 and for the facility to open to students in 2027. Mike Woessner of Investment Realty was the agent on the transaction.

State and federal funding approved for the project includes $13 million from the State of Missouri and $3 million earmarked by Congress through the Department of Health and Human Services. The upcoming state budget includes an additional $3.5 million in state funds through the MO Excels program for a Center for Advanced Manufacturing. The FY25 state budget awaits the Governor’s signature.

The state and federal funding ECC has received for the Rolla facility can only be used for this project. Additional funding through grants, foundations and other sources will be pursued.

Bauer expressed gratitude for the support from former Sen. Roy Blunt, who sponsored the federal earmark for this project, and from Gov. Mike Parson and the legislature for the state funds.

The Rolla region is part of the college’s state-designated service region, but outside of its taxing district.

“No local property tax funds will be used for designing and renovating the facility,” added Bauer. “Securing state and federal funding for this project made it possible.”

Students living outside of the ECC taxing district pay a higher rate of tuition than those living inside the college taxing district, because those students do not pay local property taxes to support the college. Much of the state’s land mass is located outside one of Missouri’s 12 community college districts. Service regions enable the community colleges to serve those areas and recoup costs through higher tuition.

One facility provides East Central with the ability to better serve students and the Phelps County area.

“Our facilities have served us well to this point, but there are challenges. Students find themselves driving between the facilities to attend classes. That limits options for scheduling, and it means they may not be in a building where other services are available,” said Bauer. “One permanent facility provides an accommodating class schedule, enhanced student and academic services, and the ability to grow programs to serve area business and industry.”

Once renovations to the building are complete, the facility will house ECC Rolla’s current academic programs and student services, a new advanced manufacturing center, and space for Certified Nurse Assistant, Certified Medical Technician, and GED programs.

Bauer said the facility also provides ample space for strategic partners such as colleges offering complementary bachelor’s degree completion programs, service providers, and others.

“Our vision is for the building to serve the needs of the region in a comprehensive fashion, primarily through the programs and services offered by East Central, but also by those offered by partners who would like to operate in the building,” Bauer said.

More information about program and service offerings at ECC Rolla is available at www.eastcentral.edu/Rolla.
