A mother was talking in a lofty
way to her small daughter about worldly matters.
"Theres one thing I
want to know, Mamma," said the little girl.
"When I grow to be a big lady will my
husband be a man like Daddy?"
The mother nodded and said he

Auntie?" she continued.
"Exactly," came the

are to result from the annual meeting of the stockholders
of the Carthage Ice and Cold Storage company, held
In planning for the coming
years work the directors decided to make a number
of extensive improvements in plant and the manager was
authorized to arrange for the proposed changes. A large
new boiler-house will be built just west of the present
boiler-room and the latter will be converted into a big
storage room with a capacity of 6.0 tons of ice. With
this immense space in which to store ice, the company
will be enabled to continually operate its plant, both
summer & winter. The present storage-room will be
converted into a smaller one for use in the local trade.

The Carthage City
Council will meet this evening in a regular
session at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers of
City Hall. Items on the agenda include the second
reading of an ordinance amending the Capital
Budget for 2007/2008 to include the expenditure
for ice storm clean up efforts.
Director Chad Wampler advised the Council during
the first reading of the ordinance that the total
amount of fallen limbs taken to the City landfill
by J&R Disaster Services was 50,285 cubic
yards. Hanging limbs were cut out of 2,056 trees
in City right-of-ways, and 250 trees in City
parks additionally. City Administrator Tom Short
told Council that of the total clean up project
cost of $257,000 that approximately $218,000 of
the is reimbursable by Federal and State funding.
The Council will
also hear the first reading of an ordinance
entering into J&R Disaster Services for the
removal of vegetative material on and around
three North Garrison Avenue Bridges. This item is
brought by the Public Works Committee, who
unanimously agreed last week to recommend to
Council the low bid of $24,999 for the removal of
For the life of me I cant remember what a
Coke with peanuts in it tastes like. I dont
suppose it mattered much at the time. Seems it
was just the thing to do.
I suppose part of the reason
the kids liked it was cause parents
couldnt understand what was so great about
The only image I see when I
think about it is watchin a guy in a
ducktail haircut cuppin one hand around the
neck of the bottle and openin the peanut
bag with his teeth. Then he would carefully drop
in the peanuts and dust off his hands.
Lookin back, the appeal
may have been more of an identity thing. A sign
of "bein cool" or part of the
group. Ta me it was just fun.
Maybe, a peanut just
doesnt really belong in a Coke.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Your Good Health
By Paul G. Donohue,
Linked With Alzheimers Disease?
DONOHUE: I have heard that aluminum, found in
many deodorants, is harmful and can contribute to
the development of Alzheimers disease. Is
there any truth to this? Every morning when I put
on my deodorant, I think about it. -- M.R.
is one of the most plentiful metals on earth, and
its impossible to avoid coming in contact
with it. Its in many commonly used items --
food, water, cookware and a number of
antiperspirants. Its also true that
aluminum has been found in the brain of some
Alzheimers patients. For that reason, a few
have raised the possible association of aluminum
with Alzheimers disease.
This matter has
been batted about for more than 25 years.
Competent investigators have examined the
evidence for an association, but no strong proof
has been established. Most scientists believe
that the tangles of two brain proteins called tau
and amyloid (an unusual body product) are the
more likely contributors to Alzheimers
Personally, I do
not worry about aluminum. I dont think you
need to either.
The booklet on
Alzheimers disease discusses this tragic
illness in depth. Readers can obtain a copy by
