The Chamber would also like to thank Joe Driskill

Character Word of the Month
Beginning in November 2012 the Chamber partnered with the
Waynesville School District in promoting their character word
of the month. Each month a character word is chosen to be
the focus of character development. The Chamber is encouraging
its members to apply this word within their business each
month. Businesses can put up a sign or put the word on their
marquis as well as encourage employees to focus on what the
character word means to them.
The character word for May is:
Confidence is full trust; belief in the powers, trustworthiness,
or reliability of a person or thing; the belief in oneself
and one's powers or abilities; self-confidence; self-reliance;
assurance; or certitude; assurance.
What does confidence mean to you, your
business, and the community?

My name is Chantel Higdon. I was born in
Poplar Bluff Mo and I grew up in a small town named Piggott,
in Northeast Arkansas. I graduated from Clay County Central
High School in Rector, AR (Class of 1998). That is where
I met my wonderful husband and best friend Tyler. We married
in June of 1999, and we have 3 beautiful little girls',
twins Adalie and Avery (6) and Abigail (3). We have been
stationed in Alaska at Elmendorf AFB (3yrs) and at Little
Rock AFB (7yrs) until being stationed here at Fort Leonard
Wood in 2009. When we received our orders to come to Fort
Leonard Wood I was to say the least not too happy about
coming back to Fort lost in the woods, since we was here
in 1999 for my husband's Technical Training school, however
now that we are here and I have seen firsthand how this
community gives back to our military, I am extremely proud
to be a part of this community. I have been to many cities/towns
and I have never seen as much support that I see here.
I can see why these two towns and Pulaski County have
received the Purple Heart. My husband is now the Instructor
Supervisor for the Payments and Construction Equipment
Operator course, assigned to the364 TRS Det 1 here at
Ft. Leonard Wood. So I am proud to say I am a United States
Air Force Wife of a Dirt Boy! I joined the US Bank team
in 2011 as there Branch Manager, I have always worked
for banks everywhere we go, I love helping customers reach
their goals, whatever they may be. I am always here to
help wherever I can. I am a new Chamber Ambassador, member
of the Committee of 50, member of Waynesville-St. Robert
Chamber, and St. Robert Parks committee. I am honored
to be your Ambassador for US Bank for the Chamber and
I want to give back to a community that does so much for

know that we are here to assist them with ideas of things
to do in Pulaski County. And if you are planning a getaway,
remember that we have over 750 brochures on attractions across
the state of Missouri.
Occasionally I like to reintroduce our team. I think it is
important for you to know what each of their specialties are.

am asked frequently about what grants are available for business
and industry. The answer is there just aren't many grants
available. The answer is usually to look for low interest
loans. I serve on the Meramec Regional Development Corporation
which is a 501 (C) 3 not-for-profit corporation. Meramec Regional
Development Corporation is also a Small Business Administration
Certified Development Corporation (CDC). Meramec Regional
Development Corporation serves primarily Crawford, Dent, Gasconade,
Maries, Osage, Phelps, Pulaski and Washington Counties. However,
MRDC has been in involved with the SBA 504 Loan Program throughout
the State of Missouri. The SBA 504 Loan Program usually requires
borrower's contribution of 10 % equity. The Bank will typically
take a first lien of 50 % and the SBA will take a second position
on 40 %. The financing is fixed rate of 20 years on Real Estate
and 10 years on machinery and equipment. There are also job
creation requirements of 1 new job for every $65,000.00 of
the loan. The Meramec Regional Development Corporation also
offers RLF,IRP, and Microenterprise loan programs. Again job
creation is a requirement for these loans. These loans have
fixed rate loans of 15 years on real estate, 10 years on machinery/equipment
and 7 years on working capital. As of March 31, 2013 the IRP
had over $100,000.00 available to loan. The RLF had $174,469.00
to loan, and the Microenterprise Fund had $78,065.00, and
there is an RLF disaster fund available of $234,196.00. If
you are interested in any of these programs contact me and
I will have a MRDC staff person contact you.
Spring has arrived and with it the start
of several anticipated projects in the City of Waynesville.
Work continues on the west Waynesville sidewalk project
and that work has now reached the downtown area, as the
vintage lighting, new sidewalks into Laughlin Park, the
lighting of the Walking Trail and the completion of the
Trail of Tears exhibit site are beginning to take shape.
We are excited about these long-planned improvements. Many
of these ideas took shape in 2004 with an idea from long-time
resident, Charli Hartley. We applaud her vision and thank
her for sticking with this project through these past years.
We also received news this week that the cost share program
through the National Park Service has been approved and
monies have been allocated for completing the signage portion
of the Trail of Tears site. This will include the site itself,
as well as an interpretive walking trail exhibit that will
wind from Laughlin Park into the upper Roubidoux Park. The
City also thanks the Pulaski County Tourism Bureau for being
partners in the Trail of Tears project. Our workers have
also completed the new Welcome Sign located on Highway 17
North, on property donated by Rachelle and George Beasley.
We have plans for another Welcome Sign in the West Waynesville
area later in the summer.
At this month's Council meeting, we swore in new councilman,
Jim Mathews, along with incumbents Mike France and Diana
Stanford. Newly elected councilman, William Paolicelli,
and incumbent, Michael Curtis, will be sworn in on April
22 at City Hall. Mike France was chosen as the Mayor pro
Tem. New committees will be formed this month and new chairmen
selected for those committees. Our committees can be found
on our website at www.waynesvillemo.org.
Chief of Police Bob Carter announced his upcoming retirement
from the Waynesville Police Department. After 24 years of
service to the City, Chief Carter will retire on Nov. 1.
He will also be helping the City transition to new leadership
for the department. Bob came up through the ranks of the
Waynesville Police from Reserve, to Patrolman, to Sergeant
and Assistant Chief and in 2008, Mayor Hammock appointed
him Chief of Police. Bob has been instrumental in many improvements
in the department and has worked hard to lower the crime
rate and solve crimes against our citizens. Bob will enjoy
his time fishing and hunting and the City applauds him and
his service. A timeline for the replacement of Chief Carter
will be announced at the next Police Committee meeting.
This month, I recognized some "Good Citizens"
from the Briar Pointe neighborhood. Elizabeth McKim, Autumn
Miller and Katelyn Ramirez responded to a rash of recent
car break ins by delivering a handwritten warning to all
their neighbors to secure their vehicles and be on the alert.
Chief Bob Carter took part in a presentation recognizing
their initiative. As mayor, I want to recognize people who
serve our community and never expect anything in return.
Several upcoming projects were begun at this month's meeting,
including the approval of plans for the low water crossing
structure to be built at the tennis court area on Old H
Highway. This will be started as soon as school is out.
We also began the paperwork on the T Highway project with
MoDOT. I would remind the public that there has been no
engineering on this project. This paperwork simply begins
the process. Many have expressed concerns and questions
about the proposed roundabout at that location. I assure
you, there will be opportunity for public input. The Council
also approved the bid of Bales Construction to build a community
hangar at the Waynesville-St. Robert Regional Airport. This
money is from a MoDOT grant and will continue to improve
our air service there. We are proud a local business was
the low bidder.
In 2008, the City adopted a Comprehensive Plan for the City
and this plan governs many of the decisions that the Council
makes. These goals and objectives are very diverse and address
many aspects of our community. For example, one goal was
to improve the entrances to our city and to make people
feel welcome. Our new Welcome Signs, our banners and the
hard work of our local Garden Club to provide beautiful
plants at the downtown Welcome Sign are good examples of
that goal. The tulips blooming right now are beautiful and
we thank the Garden Club for their work. We have several
objectives that address our streets, traffic flow and traffic
congestion. We continue to work on several areas of concern.
Because of budget constraints, we have to plan the more
expensive projects carefully, but please know that there
are many plans in the making to improve our quality of life
Congratulations 2013 Seniors!! The City of Saint Robert would
