      New grain inspection owner cleans house
      By Bob Sogard

      Three experienced federally licensed grain inspectors from Burlington have been fired by Eastern Iowa Grain Inspection Service. "We're just cutting back." said J. L. (Joe) Slater, owner of the business. "We don't plan to close anything, but business is down and naturally we don't need as many people. "Some ... (customers) are going without inspection, too," Slater added. Federal inspection is required for grain going into export trade but not domestic trade.

      In May, grain samplers Mark Gray and Dave Wesson were laid off. Then, on July 7, veteran inspector Doyle Moyers said, notice was received that "all personnel in the Burlington office" were terminated effective July 9.

      Moyers, who has been an inspector here for 19 years; James Parrish, who has graded grain here for 18 years, and Lee Hodges, with about five years of experience, were out of work.

      Moyers was chief inspector here when the Burlington Chamber of Commerce Grain Fund Incorporated sold the service to Slater, who also operates offices at Muscatine, Davenport and Dubuque.

      Moyers said he continued to run the office the first year until a year ago when Daryl Forbes was named office manager here.

      "We had a real good year the first year," said Moyers. "I don't know why he hired that young fellow. He had only a couple years of experience." Moyers said there's no doubt that grain movement is slow but he said there are other inspection services with larger staffs than the Burlington office that are grading less grain than is inspected here.

      "Of course, the fees are higher than they were," Moyers said.

      Parrish said he bid $16,000 for the business which grossed about $100,000 per year for the not-for-profit Grain Fund. Slater, of Blue Grass, said he offered less than $10,000. F. E. Polaski, owner of Cedar Rapids Grain Inspection Service, reportedly bid more than $55,000. These were among the finalists.

      The compliance division of the Federal Grain Inspection Service, a division of the USDA, chose Eastern Iowa, effective April 14, 1980.

      The Grain Fund charged elevator owners $2.30 per thousand bushels of grain for inspection and grading. Eastern Iowa inspection fee is $2.76. In addition, the licensed sampler's service costs $5 to $6 per man hour; in some cases there's also a $12 per hour "stowage" charge for checking the condition of barges prior to loading. Railroad boxcars or hopper cars had an inspection fee of $3 in 1969; that's risen to $9.90 per hopper car now, Parrish said.

      Parrish said he didn't know why he and the other inspectors were fired. He heard the story that business was off but said the week before he was dismissed, he worked overtime.

      "Agri-Industries (at Meeker's Landing) has been loading out two barges a day," said. Parrish added that Slater refused to meet with the inspectors, stating that, "I never got any cooperation out of those guys down there." Parrish said, "I don't know why he'd say that; we never had any complaints from the elevators or from him."

      JERRY KERSTEN, manager of the Tabor-ADM elevator here, said comparatively little of the corn shipped by his place is inspected by Eastern Iowa. The reason is that corn entering the Port of New Orleans for shipment overseas must be federally inspected.

      "There's no sense in paying two inspection fees," he said.

      He also said there's a growing trend of companies in the grain handling business to accept each other's product without inspection by federally licensed agencies.

      "The grain is inspected by graders fully as competent as official inspectors," Kersten said. "The grain doesn't carry a certificate of inspection; it is simply accepted on the premise that a company's word is its bond."

      In addition to the inspection fee, the government imposes a "user's fee" that now is $16.75 for a barge, he added.

      Parrish said, "The guy brought in on himself, charging as high as he does. He's also lost business at Garnac (Wayne Brothers) Grain."

      Samples collected from barges and cars in this area are graded in leased rooms at the Burlington Northern rail station here.

    The Family of Edward Nelson "Ed" and Ruth Alfrida (Young) Moyers
    Ed Moyers was married at age 32 on January 21, 1920, to Ruth Young (she was age 24). As they started "later" in life than the siblings of Ed Moyers, their children were the last of their generation born in the family (younger brother, Hally Moyers', children were all born between 1909 and 1926).

    This photograph was taken most probably between about 1940 and 1945, and can be identified with the following family members: Back row, left to right: Caroline Ellen Moyers, Lloyd Arthur Moyers, and Ethel Louise Moyers. Front row, left to right: Mabel Elna Moyers, Edward Nelson "Ed" Moyers, Elizabeth Ann "Betty" Moyers, Ruth (Alfrida) Moyers, and Doyle Edward Moyers Sr.

Judging from the electrification nearby, I am estimating this photograph was taken in about 1940.

Ruth died in February 1970, this was probably not too long before that.

    The Family of Doyle Edward Sr. and Mary Jane (Specketer) Moyers in About 1961
    Doyle and Mary had eight children. This photograph was likely taken in 1962, not long after the birth of their sixth, Debra, who would be the baby. I am not certain this identification is correct, but it seems, based upon known ages, Joseph Dean Moyers is sitting on his father, Doyle's, lap, Debra on her mother, Mary Jane's lap, Kenneth Carl is to his mother's left on the couch. The children in front are Susan Diane, Doyle Edward Jr., and Linda M. Moyers.

    Mary and Doyle appear to be celebrating a wedding anniversary in this photograph, which I am guessing may have been taken in 1992 (it would have been their 40th anniversary). Possibly it was a number of years earlier.
