Hall of fame tribute Warren Hearnes, the 46th governor of Missouri, was inducted posthumously into the Hall of Famous Missourians in September at a ceremony at the State Capitol Building in Jefferson City. Hearnes was the state’s first governor to serve consecutive terms from 1965 to 1973. He advocated for more state spending for mental health, education and social services. During his tenure, Missouri’s budget for mental health care increased from $26 million to $86 million, higher education funding increased by 204 percent to $145 million. Betty Hearnes said her husband served in office because he wanted to help people and called his career a “journey of public service.” A bronze bust of Hearnes will be displayed permanently in the Third Floor Rotunda of the Capitol building in Jefferson City. Other famous Missourians inducted in the past include Mark Twain, Thomas Hart Benton, Harry S. Truman and George Washington Carver. Hearnes died in August of 2009 at his home in Charleston in southeast Missouri. tance programs. To view the atlas and the findings from the survey, visit www.missourifamilies.org/mohungeratlas/. N E W S Biomass plant for Perryville The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has approved Liberty Green Renewables’ plan to build a wood-burning power plant in the southeast Missouri town of Perryville. The Georgetown, Ind.-based firm plans to construct a 37-megawatt, wood-fired electric generation plant on the north side of town, near the intersection of Highway 61 and 51. The plans call for the electric power to be sold to Wabash Valley Power Association, which supplies electricity to Ste. Genevieve’s Citizens Electric Corp. The biomass plant is estimated to cost $120 million to build and will generate enough power to serve 23,000 homes each day. The project is expected to create B R I E F S an estimated 200 jobs during construction and 30 full-time jobs once the plant is in operation in 2013. Is MO the king of the road? According to a recent study, Missouri’s roads last year improved the most in the nation. The 19th Annual Highway Report, conducted by the Reason Foundation, showed Missouri made the largest jump in state highway improvement rankings, up 16 spots from 24th to 8th overall. The report judges each state’s interstate highways and state-controlled roads based on costs per mile, congestion, pavement condition, deficient bridges and fatalities. Missouri ranked first in rural interstate condition and seventh in statecontrolled highway miles. The Show-Me State ranked in the top 15 in maintenance, administration, capital, bridge and total disbursements. Missouri’s lowest rankings were in deficient or functionally obsolete bridges at 40th, 38th in narrow rural lanes and 33rd in accident fatality rates.

The atlas, a county-level report of food insecurity in the state, found that more than 900,000 Missourians have difficulty obtaining sufficient food. The survey also found that rural regions often have the highest concentrations of need in the state.
