Reel Compassion
You couldn’t have asked for a better summer day. It was July 12, and the high was forecast to be in the 80s. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Days like this are a gift in the midst of the sweltering Missouri summer, and Jeff Troyer of Jacksonville knew exactly how he wanted to spend it — fishing with his grandson Tyler at Rothwell Park in Moberly. 
Partners In Health: Charlie and Kathy Digges
Most 96-years-olds aren’t taking float trips and golfing on a regular basis, but Charlie Digges isn’t your average 96-year-old. Charlie and his wife, Kathy, work out every day they can, either at their local gym or by taking walks near their home.

While the people of mid-Missouri have a remarkable work ethic, there can be too much of a good thing — frequently working overtime and not taking days off actually results in less productivity, not more. 
Caring Voices

In 2014, Boone Hospital Center’s switchboard received 544,291 calls, which works out to a call every 62 seconds for a year, an impressive number for a small team of professionals. Like the hospital’s inpatient and emergency care services, the switchboard doesn’t close for the night, weekend, holiday or snow day — it’s an essential part of patient care. 

Free Screening, Priceless Outcome
