Minstrel Show Last

perform. The troop afforded some clever stunts but the
time worn program of the same old show was carried out.
Rounds out the hollow
places; smooths out lines that creep about ones
face; woos roses back to faded cheeks. Thats what

Carthage Police Department will participate in
the national Occupant Protection program on
Wednesday, April 16. During this enforcement
effort officers will be looking to specifically
enforce seat belt violations for occupants of
motor vehicles in an effort to reduce fatalities
and injuries during motor vehicle accidents..
Nearly one in four
Missourians still fail to regularly wear their
safety belts when driving or riding in a motor
Among those least
likely to buckle up: young males, pickup truck
drivers and their passengers, people who live in
rural areas and nighttime drivers.
Failure to wear a
safety belt can be deadly. In 2007, a driver in
Missouri traffic crash has a 1 in 32 chance of
being killed if they were not wearing a seat
belt. In cases where the driver wore a seat belt,
their chance of being killed was 1 in 1,309.

folks still need a tough reminder, so we are
going to be out in force buckling down on those
who are not buckled up," said Capt. Kaiser,

Whats on sale in April: Spring
clothing, bridal gowns and cruises, plus
home-improvement items, like paint and wallpaper.
If you have drawers that stick
when you try to pull them out, or maybe drawers
that dont like to go back in without a
fight, try this tip: Take an ordinary candle and
run it along the drawers rails. This will
provide some lubrication to keep drawers gliding
in and out smoothly, without having to use messy,
drippy oil. You also can use a bar of soap if you
dont have a spare candle.
Recipe substitutions: If you
need 1 cup of cocktail sauce, use 1 cup of
ketchup plus 2 tablespoons (or to taste) of
Heres another jar-opening
tip, from reader M.B. in Saskatchewan: "My
novel way to open jars, etc., is to use a

"This year we started
keeping a garden log, which we never did before.
We used a three-ring binder and have collected
information about how to care for each type of
plant in the yard, a picture of that plant and a
note of its location. We organize the pages by
type and have used our computer to make a list of
what garden- and yard-related tasks to do and
when. It will make next years spring go
much more smoothly, and make a nice pass-along
when we eventually sell this home." -- I.D.
