Lost One of the
The Mornin Mail
lost a co-founder and driving force with the
passing of Gloria Johnson last Sunday evening.
Gloria participated in nearly all aspects of the
business with her husband H.J. Johnson since its
beginning in June of 1992. Her responsibilities
ranged from distribution to sales and layout and
eventually to the actual printing of the paper
for a few months after the couple purchased
Carthage Printing Services late in 1992.
As the printing business grew,
she shifted into more of a management role and
was responsible for accounting and overall office
management, while continuing to contribute to ad
sales and management of the Mornin Mail.
In February of 2003 the Mornin
Mail and Carthage Printing Services moved to
its current location when the Kress Building was
purchased along with the Oldies and Oddities
Mall. Gloria had always appreciated hand made
funiture, quilts, and other collectibles and
contributed daily to the operation of the mall.
Her passing marks the end of a
two and one-half year battle with breast cancer.
I grew up workin
round farm country most of my
childhood. I always figured I was pretty well
educated on the various nomenclature for
animals associated with the midwest. I
cant for the life a me think of what ta
call a bunch a pigs.
I dont think they
arent a flock, or a covey, or a heard.
The only thing I ever heard em call a
lot of the animals was "the pigs."
Im thinkin pigs
are too independent to be lumped into a
group. Even humans are sometimes referred to
as a clan, or a tribe, or a community. Pigs
seem ta be just pigs.
Dont know much about
wild pigs, maybe they dont gather in
bunches. The man made pig pen may be the only
social structure able to confine their
yearnin for self sufficient,
This is some fact, but

Heres A Tip
By JoAnn Derson
Dont throw away those plastic containers
that meat is sold in. Use the deep white ones for
planting seeds indoors and the shallow pink ones
for trays underneath them." -- J. in Vermont
"Most folks have a
computer, and some have problems keeping track of
their monthly expenses. Here is what I do. Using
a very basic word processor, I list all my
monthly expenses with the amounts, due dates and
how to pay them. When it comes time to do the
payouts, I have them all right there, so I
dont miss any. I label the file for either
1st of the month or 15th of the
month as necessary. When I need to edit
either one, I just click on the start button,
select the document, scroll down till I find it
-- and voila." -- M.H. in Colorado
"To make footed
sleepers last a little longer for an infant, cut
out the foot portion." -- S.R., via e-mail
"I go through a lot
of paper at work. Now I save any papers that
dont have sensitive information and bring
them home for my children to draw on. I have
found that I also can use the unmarked side in my
printer. It stretches out the papers use,
and we always recycle paper when were done
with it." -- B.A. in Wisconsin
Heres a quick and
painless trick to remove a fruit-drink stain on
an upper lip, more commonly referred to as a
Kool-Aid mustache. Just use toothpaste. Dab it
on, rub it in and rinse it off.
