GAVE A DANCING PARTY.
Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Ramsay gave an
elegant and largely attended dancing party last night at
their home on Grand avenue. They were assisted by Mr. and
Mrs. Don Hamilton.
The Light Guard orchestra of five
pieces furnished some really excellent music, having
recently secured the full complement of pieces played
here by the Kansas City orchestra ast the Elks
ball, as well as other fine music. "The Tail of the
Kangaroo," "Ben Buxton" two-step,
"Huckleberry Finn," "Singing Girl"
waltz, and waltz from the "Fortune Teller,"
were among the popular selections last night, some of
which were never played in Carthage before.
The two dancing rooms were canvassed
for the occasion, and cozy corners were numerous. An
evening of rare pleasure was enjoyed. The dancing
continued until about 1 a.m.
AARP ENDORSES HEALTH CARE FOR
KANSAS CITY, MO - AARP
announced its endorsement of the Affordable
Health Care Act (H.R. 3962) and the accompanying
Medicare Physician Payment Reform Act (H.R.
3961). The Associations support follows
nearly two years of work with lawmakers on both
sides of the aisle to craft a health care reform
plan that meets the needs of AARPs nearly
40 million members and all older Americans. Among
those needs are reforms that strictly curb
insurance companies discrimination against
older Americans and Medicare improvements that
strengthen benefits while protecting the program
for future generations.
"We started this debate
two years ago with the twin goals of making
coverage affordable to our younger members and
protecting Medicare for seniors," said Jim
Clemmons, AARP Missouri volunteer state
president. "Weve read the Affordable
Health Care for America Act and can say with
confidence that it meets those goals with
improved benefits for people in Medicare and
needed health insurance market reforms to help
ensure every American can purchase affordable

Frustration is havin
a handle break on your shovel bout half
way through diggin a hole. Or
havin the computer crash just seconds
before ya save those last few changes.
Although throwin a broken shovel handle
down the block can relieve some tension, I
wouldnt recommend the same remedy in
the case of the computer.
This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
Looking towards the last
weekend of our current show here at artCentral, I
want to thank once again, our friends at HOMETOWN
BANK for the generous underwriting of this fine
exhibition. If you havent come by already
to see it, you still have this weekend, Friday
through Sunday from noon until 5:00 each day. I
will be moving some of the work of Dan McWilliams
and Mary Lou Reed to the Atruim Gallery at the
Sirloin Stockade after the 8th of November, so
you will see a bit of this fine show there. I
want to tell you today a bit about a very unusual
artist, and a new member of artCentral, Rachel
Wilson of Avilla. Rachel came to our attention
back in June when she inquired about a membership
here, and soon after entered one of her wonderful
life-sized horses in the Annual Membership show.
We were all thrilled to see SHADOW, her entry,
and the judge awarded her First Award and $300.00
for the entry. SHADOW was photographed and
appeared in the PRESS and the rest is history! I
received an inquiry from Bil Tatum, features
writer from the SPRINGFIELD NEWSLEADER earlier
this month wanting to know more about Rachel and
her horses. The paper was interested in doing a
feature as well as a personal interview and video
on Rachel and her horses, which will be upcoming.
I was pleased to tell him about her earlier
award, and that she was a graduate of MSSU with a
degree in art, was currently a farm wife raising
her family in Avilla, but constructing these
found-wood horses ever since the first winter ice
storm left so much wood in her husband
Kyles hedge-row two years ago! They have
since come over and "shadowed" her as
she goes through her building process.
Congratulations to her! She says, "I always
wanted a horse growing up, but never had
one." Now she has a bunch! Seven are
currently grazing on the lawn of the Hyde House,
and an eighth little guy is inside. Come see
these wonderful creatures.
