from the Carthage Police Department.
Police Department does not want owners to be
separated from their pets or to have to locate
the animals at a shelter. For some time now, the
Carthage Police Department animal control
division has possessed the capability of scanning
any microchip implanted into a pet. A scanner,
much like a barcode scanner at the grocery store,
can identify a lost pet immediately, but only if
the pet owner had a microchip implanted. The
process of implanting a microchip is quick and no
more painful for pets than a vaccination. With
microchip implants, pet owners insure permanent
identification for the life of the animal
wherever they live.
For a limited
time, the Carthage Humane Society will place a
microchips in pets for $5.00. For further
information, contact the Carthage Humane Society
or Chief Dagnan at the Carthage Police
Childrens Show Auditions.

We used ta have this fan that
had rubber blades on it when I was a kid. The
intention, I suppose, was ta be safer than the
metal kind. Course, as curious kids, we
wondered about such a thing and would impress our
friends by our bravery and walk up and stick our
finger in it. Didnt hurt.
I guess one a the points of
relatin such a story is to bring up the
relationship between the manufacturers of
"safe" equipment and the attitude of
those who operate it.
"Safe" equipment is
still only safe it if is operated in a safe
manner. Ive seen all kinds of ingenious
methods of overridin various safety
features. Safety switches taped down, rubber
bands holdin levers up.
Sometimes I think the
"safer" we make things, the less likely
we are to take the responsibility for our own

Oak Street Health & Herbs
By Mari An Willis
May is Arthritis Month. This
would be the logical time to discuss some of the
nutrients used for maintaining healthy joints.
This is a case where prevention
and maintenance is extremely important. Care
should be taken to keep bones strong and
cartilage in tact and relax surrounding muscles
to ease the strain and inflammation. Some common
nutrients used for these purposes may be:
MSM or methylsufonylmethane,
which is a naturally occurring organic sulfur
that works by relaxing the muscles and relieving
joint pain. It may also help maintain cartilage
and slow the natural cycle of enzyme destruction.
Studies have shown that 2000mg of MSM per day was
Chondroitin sulfate is maintain
the integrity of the cartilage itself. Cartilage
should be fluid and have elasticity. It is found
naturally in the body as part of the connective
tissue. Chondroitin may help by keeping water in
the cartilage and has been studied for its
ability to ease joint pain and as an
anti-inflammatory. A good chondroitin sulfate
product is easily absorbed by the body.
Glucosamine is a building block
of cartilage, but is not found in significant
amounts in the diet so supplementation is often
recommended. SAMe has also proven to be helpful
by reducing pain, stiffness and swelling. Several
studies have shown it may work as well or even
better than some drugs including ibuprofen and
naproxen. SAMe should be avoided if one has
bipolar disorder or Parkinsons disease.
Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
There are a lot of "balls
in the air" being juggled this month here at
artCentral! At present we are excited to be
receiving back replies and contributions for our
current fundraiser, the Lowell Davis panel
project that many of you have already returned
the cards to be a part of. With a contribution, a
name or names are added to the plaque to be hung
with the pieces, at McCune Brooks Regional
Hospital. Remember to return your contribution
today! I am currently having the schedule of
classes/ mailing printed for the upcoming
kids artCamp, to be held July 28th
August 9th , and 27 new classes will be offered
this year. Call me if you have the name and
address of a child aged 7-14 who may be
interested. I will be mailing to all past
students by the end of May. Letters have gone out
this week to 111 member-artists of artCentral to
participate this year in the annual Membership
Show, to open on June 20th with the annual
contributive bbq picnic and exhibition, so put
that on your calendar, as the public is always
invited. Jan Hyde of the Hyde Gallery in downtown
Springfield is this years judge, and four
prizes are awarded along with cash awards. This
is always a big show and well attended, and we
look forward to it each year. The plans have been
presented for our new parking lot project and
this could be completed by Membership Show day we
hope! This is something that we have needed for a
long time, and out thanks to Dick Rhine for
drawing the plan for a beautiful design. There
will be new flower beds and signage to accompany
this project, all badly needed. Our current show
has seen a nice crowd of viewers, and we hope to
see more of you before the closing on the 18th.
To date we have sold many of the artists
beautiful hand-made jewelry pieces, and quite a
few small sculptures. I look forward to welcoming
a tour group next Wednesday afternoon from the
Chamber of Commerce, and am glad that they
thought of us for this venue. Keeping the balls
in the air is a challenge as always here at the
