The Last Day To Prepare (Mostly)




Here on leap day 2020 (February 29th) the US records its first coronavirus death on the continent, a 50+ year-old man in Washington State. Cases continue to grow exponentially in South Korea and Italy. Meanwhile, most hospital systems in western countries are woefully unequipped for any large influx of serious respiratory patients. After dragging its feet for seeming forever, the CDC “allows” states to begin testing on their own. Finally, and inexplicably. Through all of this we’ve been consistently telling you that you need to prepare. Now it’s more or less too late. Already many communities are experiencing runs on basic items of food and water. Any preparing you do from here on out needs to be done ultra-responsibly and without any hoarding. From here on out the words are going to be “mitigation” (not containment) and “non-pharmaceutical interventions” or NPIs. That’s a fancy way of saying no large gatherings, no school, and no unnecessary travel or contact. But there’s still time to do a few things so continue do what you can.

Eliud Kipchoge's NIKE ZOOMX ALPHAFLY NEXT% || THE Marathon WORLD RECORD Controversy




All hail the new king of shoes! The Nike ZoomX Alphafly Next% is here! Since the Ineos 159 challenge on October 12th, 2019, the athletics world has been under assault with non-stop shoe controversy. Since Kipchoge's 1:59 marathon, the international running body, World Athletics, has implemented new rules regulating the size and usage of sole thickness and carbon fiber in all running shoes. Amazingly, the Alphafly shoes fall within the new regulations, which can only mean one thing, we will likely see them everywhere next year! But how did we get here? How did Nike become such a huge player in the running world? We'll explore it all in this video! Thanks for watching!

Words of :  
Auriel Clary

I began to start picking up patterns in the field, from every aspect of my experience after the September equinox this year, as our collective consciousness tends to go into a free "fall" approaching the winter solstice. I watched as dynamics began to accelerate, picking up in October, then November, and so on... It's been raising serious red flags for me, to where I began looking at the news again, especially going through real time astronomical and geologic data across the board.
I watched as my community faltered into forgetfulness and human behaviors manifesting in the most peculiar of ways. Earthquakes hit, and the moronic behavior begin winning awards in the halls of stupidity and greed, on a global scale, with so many saying in the streets "I am mad as hell, and I am not going to take this anymore." So many glimpses into other realities, I could see the foundation of our fragile constructs about to crumble upon their feet. I was so sure a massive economic recession, yet alone depression, is around the corner.
Little did I know initially that a pandemic would kick off. When the first reports came out of China in early January, it caught my attention. Something deep in my intuition did not feel good. I have paid extremely close attention to this for almost two months now. Extremely close. Not in a doom dayer's sense or fearful of what is to come, even though it does hit a point in my heart ever sharply.
Most in particular is the psychology in all this. Humanity in my opinion is at an all time high of emotional suppression and we are literally destroying ourselves in compounding cycles of self-sabotage. Conspiracy theories have run amok over the past decades since 9/11, that even many of what can be seen as critical free thinkers IMHO, have fallen victim to the confusion and delusion of the world. Less than what I can count on my hand are the people who I have been able to effectively and intellectually communicate with on the subject of Coronavirus since this became a story up until only a few days ago, when the powers at be in the media (ie the CDC) broadcasted it to everyone to where now it's a "thing" cause the media said it's now a thing. Again, I have only five fingers.
I can talk about metaphysics to the end of creation. I am an eternal optimist and will use every ounce of my love to bring forth beauty into this world which includes having to hold gnarly boundaries to a whole heap of certain individuals, and their shenanigans, and their karma they aren't looking at, who do not seemed to be as persistent to that beauty as me. There is a fine line between love and fear. Yet pervading throughout the conscious communities, and so many other communities as well, as it's all really honestly pretty unconscious these days, is where common sense still ain't that common.
I have been in multiple situations where something "traumatic" happens in a particular moment. And the group of individuals are sort of frozen in fear and disbelief while I am responding immediately to the situation.
I am by no means trying to separate myself from the many. I am bringing forth a reflection to wakefulness, ever conscious in our presence. I invite you to tune yourself to the stillness of your center, and free in your perception, to observe what is truly right before you.
This is a moment in time for us to be sharp and keen in our observation in the world around us. To allow thyself to receive thy knowledge from above and below as succinct in its simplicity as so applied to the present at hand. Your wounds and your passion are your fuel to bring forth change in what you know you believe in at the core of your being can be emanated as truth in this world. For the embodiment of a real human here on the earth plane meets it with absolute and authentic participation of the experience at hand.
The noble truths are your best friend if you are open to the all-win yes. The compassionate heart rings both firm and tender as we always invite in forgiveness with each other.
Yet this is a time to be strong. This is a time to be powerful in that in who you choose to embody. The kind of strength and power that brings to balance the masculine and the feminine in graceful union.
The external is ultimately just a game of Clue. It is you who make the decisions, and assume your power, or freely give it away. Trust yourself. Your inner guidance is your best friend, everything thereout is just a clue. When you overpower any aspect of the external, it will bite you in the ass. Guaranteed. Proper relationship within and thereout is your ticket to sailing in grace.
For this game called Earth is not for the faint-hearted. Please start treating family like family. That is all I ask. For we are about to enter quite the portal of an experiential shifting point, and I could drop a whole crazy sleuth of 3D facts of reality right now (way more than just the Coronavirus), as many people elsewhere are doing just so as we cherry pick around the disinformation. So I wanted to deliver a different form of entertainment to you on this thing called Facebook. I don't have to convince you of anything. You just have to slow down and shut up for one moment, yes, that mind that just wants to jabber and be jabbered at back, and instead listen to the world around you. Take off the sunglasses, open your eyes, and see clearly. You actually don't have to turn the news on to see the patterns in the themes that are playing out...
It's a big fucking deal what is unfolding on all levels. At least, from one perspective. From another, it's a really good game of Clue. Really good. So good it can actually be scary.
So yes, be positive and open to the infinite, and all realms in where our imagination can go. At the same time, please be somewhat realistic with your manifestations. Sometimes, you just got to go cut some wood, to heat your house. That magick my friends, is called willpower and common sense.
Again, family be nice to family. It's about time already. Bless.

Hey, Ozark Residents -

In case you haven't noticed, the days are getting a little longer and starting to get a little warmer. It's too early to claim it's spring, but we're certainly getting closer. My grass is getting very green and the daffodils are starting to come up. Spring also means we are nearing the April 15 completion date (fingers crossed) for the South Street 5 lane improvement project. When that is done, MoDOT has promised they will immediately get started on the similar 5 lane improvement project on Jackson Street to Highway 65 - including the Highway NN intersection. Somewhere in March or April, we should also see the start of the new Riverside Bridge project. These were all promised three years ago with the passage of the transportation sales tax. 

Please mark your calendars for two upcoming events spotlighting the city's Journey 2030 initiative. The first is Tuesday night, March 3rd at The OC and the second is Thursday night, April 2nd, also at The OC. Both will start at 6:00 p.m. and feature food and light refreshments. You will hear details of our plans for the next 10 years.  The first stop on this Journey includes plans for the use of funds that may be generated from the local Use Tax if passed on April 7th. If passed, a local Use Tax will be collected at the same rate as the local sales tax. It will be collected on online purchases from out-of-state vendors

The results of the passage of the Use Tax on April 7 will allow Ozark to fund significant improvements in public safety through our Police Department, build more parks, trails and playgrounds and start improving inadequate city facilities. Included in the latter will be a new no-kill animal shelter. 

And stay tuned for more details about our upcoming city wide clean up Saturday, May 5. You will see more information on this in upcoming issues of this newsletter.

Thanks for allowing me be your Mayor,

Rick Gardner
City News & Updates
A Note From Public Information Officer Samantha Payne:
Over the past three years, the City of Ozark has completed several long-range planning projects. This includes the Master Park plan, Comprehensive plan, Sewer Master Plan, and street improvements. During these projects’, citizens were given surveys, participated in focus groups, and attended community meetings. When staff began to review the data, there was one specific, dominate idea that kept coming up: citizens love our city. Not only do they love our city, but they are invested in it. Additionally, not only are they invested, but they want to see more of what Ozark has to offer, primarily our quality of life amenities. Our data showed that citizens asked for more parks, trails, recreation opportunities, and more police services, including neighborhood watch programs.  
Through the citizen input collected the Love your City initiative was founded. Staff knew it would take some time to reach our goal. It was going to be a Journey. But it was going to be our journey, together. The first stop on the Love Your City: Journey 2030 is community meetings. The city is hosting two community meetings to share the road map which will lead us through the next 10 years. Come and join us on March 3rd and 6:00 PM for the first ever Journey 2030 meeting. We want to meet you, and learn why you Love Your City.

How is the City of Ozark Funded?
Statewide Tornado Drill Day is TUESDAY, MARCH 3rd.

The City of Ozark will participate in the statewide tornado drill at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, March Third. When the tornado sirens go off, please go to your designated areas. Once everyone is accounted for you may return to what you were doing. There will not be an announcement for an all clear. If this were a real event then we could call the Sheriff’s office for an all clear. If you text SWIFT 911 to 99538 you will get notifications to your phone from the Christian County Emergency Management for tornadoes, school lock downs, accidents etc. Having this app may help you make decisions on what to do or where to go in the event you are driving. 
The OC and OTC both have storm shelters that are open when severe weather is in the area. If you are out driving around you do not need to do anything for the drill, just make sure in a real event you know where you would be going.
