Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Arrested After a
Several young men who had
been drinking were creating a disturbance yesterday on
the southwest corner of the square and the police were
sent for. On the arrival of the officers they quieted
down with the exception of Will Pike, the young man from
the country, who showed fight. He broke away from the
officers at once and came near getting away, but after
quite a struggle in which Pike was considerably used up,
he was lodged in the City jail.

Sometimes its pretty easy
to forget how good we have it here in the

energy to worry bout things like our park

things wouldnt even be at the bottom of
their wish list of problems they want ta get

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
After a week of preparation,
the Hyde House is all decorated for Christmas,
and this early decoration is in honor of the new
holiday art exhibition that begins this evening
here, with the artists reception at 6:00. I
hope to see a lot of folks for this special show,
as our artist, Glenda Manche, is coming all the
way from Charleston, MO which is a six hour trip!
Glendas paintings include many in holiday
themes including a number of St. Nicks, carolers,
snow scenes, a Christmas stocking, poinsettias,
and a holy family. Our show will be open noon to
5:00 Saturday and Sunday, and for the following
two weekends as well, so come by during those
times if you cant make it Friday night.
This show continues until December 7th. We thank
our friends at CARTHAGE PRINTING as the
underwriters for this show. After that time, the
Hyde Gallery will be closed for the remainder of
2008, but plans are underway for a great year in
2009, beginning in February with all new artists
and several joint shows. Our annual membership
drive will begin in February as well, and I hope
that those of you reading this that have been
members in the past, but are not currently active
members will consider joining us again. To those
of you who have never been a part of the
membership, what are you waiting for? Membership
includes the four annual newsletters, invitations
to all shows and events, use of the 200+ volume
library as well as the Pottery Studio which
includes use of the wheels and kiln. Make it a
resolution for the New Year to join artCentral!
