Terry Lee Adams, age 57, of Springfield, exited the stage for the final time at 9 p.m. Sunday, August 20, 2006, after a courageous two year battle with lung cancer. He was at home surrounded by his family. Terry was born November 10, 1948, in Springfield, Missouri, to Dean and Thelma Adams. As a young man Terry attended College Street Baptist Church. In 1961 he moved with his parents and two brothers to Ozark, Missouri, where on July 24, 1964 Terry was baptized at the First Baptist Church in Ozark. Terry was active in debate and theater and graduated from Ozark High School in 1966 and attended SMS. Terry worked for the Zenith Corporation in Springfield for 18 years, then in 1994 he went to work for Bass Pro for 10 years. Terry was a writer, director, composer and actor. He was an entertainer. Terry had a golden talent for making people laugh. He especially enjoyed performing at the Springfield Little Theatre and was a member of the Actors Theatre of Missouri. Some of his most memorable roles were as Ernie Cusack in Rumors, Mr. Stanley in The Man Who Came To Dinner, Paul Sycamore in You Can't Take It With You, Mr. Potter in It's a Wonderful Life and pictured here, as a gentleman whose air of dignity and composure is hilariously lost (along with his hat) when bestowed with sudden and unexpected generosity by Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol. Terry had an abiding love for animals. Four stray black cats that found their way to his doorstep over the years were rewarded with a safe, loving and happy home, their names-Blackjack, Java, Catrina and Emerald. Terry was rewarded with their antics and love in return. Terry was a loyal friend, an eccentric uncle, a much loved brother and adored son. He will be sorely missed, though we take comfort in knowing Terry has gone home to his Heavenly Father permanently healed and reunited with his earthly father Arthur Dean Adams. Terry leaves behind his mother, Thelma Adams; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Dean and Mary Adams and Jeff and Andra Adams; one sister, Valerie Adams; a niece Sarah Orr and her husband, Mark, all of Ozark; two nephews, Arthur Adams and his wife, Kimberly, Nixa; and Jesse Adams, Ozark; one great-niece, Emily Orr; an English Bulldog named Winston and two very special miniature Schnauzers named Freddy and Willy who stayed at Terry's bedside and helped watch over him during the final days of his illness. Bravo Terry! Services will be held Wednesday, August 23, at 6 p.m. in Adams Funeral Home, Ozark, with Pastor Tommy Bilyeu speaking, and visitation following the service. Burial will be in Sparta Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, 3322 S. Campbell Avenue, Ste R, Springfield, MO 65807, or church or charity of the donor's choice.

Tribute of Respect

To the Consul and Neighbors of Ozark Camp No. 5111, M. W. A. Your committee appointed to draft a tribute of respect to memory of Neighbor W. C. Adams, submit the following: Death, the ruthless Intruder whom even the bravest cannot check has again invaded our Camp and taken from us our Neighbor William Calvin Adams, who died at his home near Montague on Friday, November 4, 1910, leaving a heart-broken widow and four little daughters. Neighbor Adams became a member of Ozark Camp December 15, 1901, coming to us on transfer card from Arlington Camp, Oklahoma, where he had been adopted about one year previously, and held a certificate for $1,000. The distance of his home from town made it impossible for him to attend meetings of our Camp, but he met his financial obligations with that promptness and cheerfulness which proved his faithfulness to his obligations and devotion to his family. He was accorded the honors of the Fraternity in burial in the cemetery at Selmore by Neighbors of the Camp on Saturday afternoon, November 5th. He was a good citizen, kind father, true Woodsman, and we pay this fraternal tribute to his memory, and extend our sympathies to the bereaved family. Charles F.. Reid, J. H. Gardner, Jacob Hartley, Committee.

Teens die after possible drug overdoses

Nixa Police make arrests.

Nixa Police are investigating an outbreak of possible prescription drug overdoses and have arrested two individuals on drug charges suspected to have a connection to two local deaths. Dina M. Eslick, 50,  and Bret W. Turner, 20, both face distribution of controlled substance charges following two deaths from alleged prescription drug overdoses in the past month. Nixa Sgt. Jeff Romero said Eslick, also known as “Momma D,” was implicated by witness statements in the death of James D. Crow, 17. Investigators believe Crow’s death March 27 was caused by an overdose of different prescription medications and illegal drugs. “We are still waiting on the toxicology reports before an exact cause of death is determined,” Romero said. “(Nixa) Detective Jason Hartsell received several statements during his investigation implicating Eslick in the distribution of prescription medication and illegal drugs to several people, including her 16-year-old daughter. Eslick was arrested April 2 after the Nixa Emergency Tactical Team executed a search warrant at her residence that resulted in the recovery of controlled substances. She remains in the Christian County jail on a $50,000 cash bond and is scheduled for an April 21 preliminary hearing.  “Eslick is already facing a separate charge of distribution stemming from a previous case submitted by our agency last year,” Romero said. “The investigation of Crow’s death is still ongoing.”  Turner was arrested after police began investigating April 4 the death of his 16-year-old girlfriend, Amanda R. Adkins. “(Nixa) Detective Graham Applegate investigated the death and suspected Adkins’ death was caused by an overdose of prescription medications,” Romero said. “Again, we are awaiting toxicology reports before a final determination o the exact cause of death is made. Other charges may be filed once we received the pending reports.”

Turner remains in jail under a $100,000 bond and is scheduled for an April 28 preliminary hearing. Romero said the number of incidents relating to prescription drugs are skyrocketing. “Our statistics show that problems with prescription medications have far exceeded the problems we have with illicit illegal drugs,” Romero said. “With a declining economy and moral foundation, young people seem to be turning to prescription medications, illegal drugs and alcohol at alarming rates.”  Parents can take the first active role in the fight against prescription drug abuse, Romero said. “Parents need to be vigilant in the fight for their children’s lives,” Romero said. “If you are a parent with prescription medications in your home, please, do not make it easy for children to obtain your medications.”  The law is very specific about distributing prescription medications, Romero said. “The public must also be aware that giving a controlled substance, which includes many prescription medications, to anyone else, even family members, is a crime,” he said.
