When one leaves
the Carthage area it is so nice to find the
Mornin Mail on line. Thanks for that as it
is necessary to keep up with those one misses. So
happy to see Marge Housh as the grand marshal for
the Maple Leaf parade. She is a very good
representative of the type of people who live in
Carthage who are so willing to give of themselves
through volunteer work. Congratulations to Marge
and to Carthage for keeping up the good work and
the wonderful attitudes. Maple Leaf keeps me
coming back at least once a year!
As a previous
business owner in Carthage, I can tell you that
it is a wonderful community and I certainly do
miss the people there. As "they"
say," you dont know what youve
got until its gone".
Enjoy and be

I always have the urge to stop and take a look
when I see somethin that looks like it blew
out of a pickup along the road. I dont
recall ever actually stoppin, but I always
think I ought to.
I saw what appeared to be a
mattress the other day, but as I drove by, rubber
neckin all the way, it looked more like a
big chunk of insulation or somethin.
Nothin I wanted, but I still though about
stoppin check it out.
I suppose everone is
curious about the possibility of find some
hidden treasure layin in the ditch, or in
their attic or at a garage sale.
The fact is, usually, another
mans junk is just that.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
Sailing into a new month soon,
and a new art exhibition opens October 10th here
at the Hyde Gallery at artCentral! We welcome
member artist Patricia Moline, of Joplin, and are
calling this show "CLOUDY" in honor of
her beautiful paintings of cloud formations that
I fell in love with at last years
membership show. Patricia works now in the medium
of oil on canvas. Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
and raised in Kingman, Arizona, she moved to
Missouri in 1982. Patty studied fine art in high
school years, and later attended workshops in
Fort Smith, Arkansas with Doug Dawson, and in
Taos, New Mexico. She has exhibited since 1999,
at the Bluebird Café in Kansas City and the
Roadway Coffee Shop in Kingman, Arizona. Her
group exhibitions include the Designs of Autumn
show in Miami, Oklahoma from 1998- 2002, art
shows in Wichita, Kansas, Lamar, Pineville and
Springdale, Arkansas as well as several shows
with Spiva in Joplin and artCentral in Carthage.
Her pastels have won awards at various
exhibitions as well, including the Charles Banks
Wilson award in 1999 in Miami, Oklahoma. The work
that Patty brings to this show will include the
"skyscapes" that I admired originally,
as well as other subjects. I will tell you more
next week about this exciting new show, and
invitations will go out October 1st. Until then,
I am keeping busy here at the gallery with a few
special rental events--- dont forget us
when planning that small wedding or party!
I am also splitting my time a
bit this next month, having just today completed
the "patriotic interior design" of the
new Carthage Republican Headquarters in the
corner "Professional Building" near the
Post Office, which opens Wednesday, 10-6 PM. Come
by and say hi to me on Mondays, and I will see
you back here on this page next week!
