MELVA, Mo. -- Hidden away in the foothills of Taney County are ruins of a town that few Ozarkians remember.   Don Rittenhouse, a Hollister resident, had ancestors who lived in Melva.  “The old town site, the old hotel or boarding house, whatever they call it, by the railroad and then I saw where they had built houses up there on the lots.   The best I remember, they didn't have foundations; a lot of them just had rocks," said Rittenhouse. There isn't much left of Melva today.  If you hike to see the ruins, you'll see several old foundations and a tall chimey that still stands amongst the trees.

NIXA, Mo. --  An apparently widowed goose has incorporated Nixa's Dollar General into its grieving process.  The female Canada goose (also known as a "Candadian goose") has become a lone fixture at the store off Highway 160 for the past six weeks. Ruby Sims. an employee of the Dollar General store at Highway 160 and Tracker Road, says the goose she calls "Gussie" meets her at her car every morning when she arrives at work.  Gussie, separated from her flock, then stays around the Dollar General parking lot all day, taking donations of bread and water from whomever offers.  Canada geese are family-oriented, mate for life, and are renowned for their remarkable mourning process that often accompanies the loss of their mate.  That process can include sequestering itself from the flock, weight loss, and signs of submission to other geese for several weeks following its mate's death.
