Examining All Wire
It was discovered
yesterday afternoon that the wires of the city light
plant and the old light plant were crossed in contact at
one point yesterday.
The City light department
started on a tour to carefully inspect both systems for
similar defects and also to see that no telephone wires
were out of place or crossed with the light wires. The
two men spent the rest of the afternoon on this work and
are still at it today. They have found several points
where a little work was needed.

Its the cool, wet season that I most miss a
stove sittin in the livin room. As a
young kid we had a big brown gas stove with a fan
on the side. Comin in from a rainy day
meant a warm place to back up to and dry off.
With central heat all you can
do is turn it up and stand over onea those little
registers. Doesnt warm that well and sure
doesnt help to dry off the dampness.
Course as a kid we also
had onea those foldin racks ta hang clothes
on to dry. Ya pop that up in front of the stove
and in a few minutes theyd be not only dry,
but toasty warm.
My grandparents house had a big
round floor register with a heater in the
basement. Now there was the ultimate warmin
up, dryin out machine.

|Journey Along the
By Leesa Robinson, NHP
An interesting fact to consider when
focusing on wellness is that all of the
structures and functions of the human body are
built from and run on nutrients. How easy it is
to overlook such a fundamental function as this!
Every moment of every day, millions of cells;
which make up tissues, organs, and thousands of
biochemical messengers are being broken down and
rebuilt; all by nutrients. Our Creator has
provided all life forms on earth with fuel and
rebuilding materials in the form of whole foods.
In contrast, consuming a
regular dose of processed, devitalized foods
leads to malfunctioning, broken-down bodies. We
see this happening to increasing numbers of
people at younger ages. Amazingly enough, our
body actually will take what it is given and with
the intelligence it has within, will build and
rebuild to the best of its ability. Eventually,
various versions of fatigue and cellular
breakdown result from this and are ultimately
given names such as fibromyalgia, insulin
resistance, arthritis, diabetes, etc.
Essential nutrients are those
nutrients that we must provide in our daily
intake of food in order for the body to have what
it needs to run smoothly. Evaluation of the right
quality and quantity of nutrients that
continuously rebuild our bodies should rightly be
a foundational starting point in any health care
So ask yourself a basic
question. Do you want to build and rebuild your
body with essential, constructive, life-giving
nutrients or devitalized junk food? Remember that
natures design is for us to eat whole foods
with the nutrients still in their living form.
Yours in good

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
One year ago I was in
Charleston, Missouri, down in the boot-heel, and
visited a small gallery in the historic downtown.
The owner of that gallery is Glenda Manche, and
after we chatted and I viewed her various
paintings, she agreed to provide an exhibition
here at artCentral, which will be our next show,
opening November 21st here at the Hyde House.
The Red Geranium Gallery had
recently moved from a smaller former location,
vastly expanding the floor space for this art and
antique related business. Located on Main Street,
art is an integral part of the business. Entering
the large, imposing red brick building, visitors
walk into a gallery dedicated to guest artists.
On the first Saturday of each month, a special
opening is held at the gallery featuring works of
another individual artist. Manches own art
studio and her work are in a room just off the
gallery. Here, she teaches separate classes in
painting to adults and children on a weekly
basis. Other special events are held in the
gallery space as well--- a weekly brunch for men
and a tea for ladies. A table manners class is
offered for children. The rear space is an
antique gallery, and the whole building may be
rented for special events. The work I saw that
day featured many paintings in Christmas holiday
themes, and I have included several of these oils
and watercolors in the group of paintings that
will be displayed here in our gallery beginning
November 21st with our Artists Opening.
Glenda will be present to meet our patrons, and
invitations will be in the mail this week to our
members and guests. I hope many will come for
refreshments that evening and meet this artist
and view her fun paintings. This will put you in
a holiday spirit, I promise!
