We didnt have many
sidewalks in the town where I grew up. The only
paved streets were main and Church streets. Only

the whole street was only bout eight blocks

Oak Street Health & Herbs
By Mari An Willis
Spring has sprung, but dont let
your guard down to colds and flu. Many people
come down with serious cases of spring colds and
The following are a few ways to
increase your resistance.
1. Drink plenty of liquids.
Fluids support the body by preventing dehydration
of the respiratory tract. Soups, warm beverages
and water are the best choices.
2. Wash your hands frequently
with soap and water. Most people catch a virus by
rubbing their nose, eyes or mouth after touching
something handled by a person who has a cold.
There are convenient antibacterial lotions/soaps
available which require no water. Excellent
choice for those times when you are shopping or
other times when washing is not convenient.
3. Increase your intake of
Vitamins A, C and Zinc.
4. Increase your calcium
intake. You get aches and pains when lack of
calcium in the white blood cells causes calcium
depletion in the bones.
5. Get plenty of rest and
sleep, and defend your health with good food
based supplements, minerals and vitamins.
Art Notes from Hyde
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
The last weekend of our latest
exhibition of work by the three artists, Joe
Prater, Nida Rudd, and Steve Binam is here, and I
hope if you did not yet have the chance to see
this work you will come by on Sunday afternoon to
see it. Some of the paintings will be moved to
the Atrium Gallery at the Sirloin Stockade to
replace the art of the student winners of the
District 9 Art Contest. I thank these member
artists for their exhibition of paintings and
look forward to seeing them in the Membership
Show in June. I will be sending out the second
quarters newsletters this week and all
members should have those soon. The teachers for
kids artCamp are beginning to respond and I
am excited about some of their proposals as well
as the fact that we will have at least three new
instructors joining our faculty this year.
Remember that the dates for camp this year are
July 28- August 9, 2008. An unusually generous
gift has again been offered artCentral. We
occasionally are the recipients of the extra
generosity of our patrons; you remember several
have made the gifts of original art for us to
sell, and some make yearly monetary contributions
to artCentral. It is only through the gifts of
our patrons and underwriters that we can continue
to do what we do here. Mary Jean Beimdiek, owner
of the former SECOND STREET GALLERY downtown is
generously offering the proceeds from the
remaining inventories of her stores to
artCentral, to be sold in a final sale later this
summer. I will be bringing more on this
fundraiser later, but we wish to publicly thank
her for her desire to help artCentral in this
way. Some of her beautiful fixtures from that
store are already gracing the Hyde House, and we
thank Mary Jean for the beautiful acrylic print
shelving unit and other units we will use to hold
our sales and reference materials. Please
remember artCentral when donations are dealt out
by your business, as we are a 501 (C)
organization. Next week I will begin telling you
about my new exhibition for May!
