If Barbie is

One day, a teacher was talking to her
first grade class about whales when a little girl had a
Little Girl: "Do whales swallow
Teacher: "No, even though they are
much bigger than a person, they have throat pleats that
filter their food of krill and plankton.
Little Girl: "But Mrs. Thurston
says Jonah was swallowed by a whale."
Teacher getting angry: "Blue
whales cannot swallow people."
Little Girl: "Well, when I get to
heaven Ill just ask Jonah if he was really
swallowed by a whale."
Teacher, still red with anger:
"What if Jonah went to hell?"
Girl: "Well, then you can ask

Mother Charged With
A petition was presented to the county
court yesterday, signed by A. R. Darling and others of
Webb City, asking that Aaron Griffin, a three year old
boy of that town, be awarded to someone who could take
him into custody and care for him.
They charge that his mother is grossly
immoral, is without a home or means of support, and is
totally unfit to have the custody of her son.
The court issued an order for the
mother to appear and show cause why a custodian for her
boy should not be appointed.

The art auction I talked
about yesterday was a mistake. The column was
actually run a week ago Thursday and I failed
to replace in this weeks paper. Just in
case, There is no auction at the high school
But, as luck would have it,
the auction scheduled for last Saturday was
postponed and will be held at a later date.
The auction is to raise funding for the tiger
Bob Tommey is sculptin for the High
From what Im
hearin there a several original works

NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
I will set aside the forth
"history of artCentral"article in my
series to concentrate on our newest exhibition
which opens this Friday, October 23rd here at the
gallery. We are very excited to welcome three
local artists in this latest offering, which
include Dan McWilliams of Jasper, Mary Lou Reed
of Sarcoxie, and Rachel Wilson of Avilla. Dan
McWilliams is well known as a fine oil painter,
and has been a contributor to the "Midwest
Gathering of the Artists" fall art show for
the past few years. His style is fairly
representational, with a real flair for color and
unusual composition. Dan is a Southwest Missouri
native, born in Sheldon, and currently has his
studio in downtown Jasper alongside his
familys gourmet pizza parlor and antiques
business. He studied art at MSSU in the mid 70s
and pursued a career as an illustrator for the
following 20 years, choosing art as a full time
career in 2001. Dan has been in several regional
and national competitions and has received many
awards. He has chosen the title MY EYES PAINT
AMERICA for this exhibition. "Everything has
been painted--- but not through MY eyes!" he
is quoted as saying, and thus the title for the
wonderful group of 18 paintings in this show. In
the Member Gallery we are presenting member
artist Mary Lou Reed, and a group of new
paintings of hers in both traditional acrylic and
a new liquid acrylic painting style. Outside on
the lawn, be sure and see the group of six
life-sized horses by artist Rachel Wilson of
Avilla, made from Osage Orange Hedge found-wood.
Rachel was our first award winner this year in
our Membership Show with her horse SHADOW, and he
received such a favorable response, we brought
her back with a selection of different horses. I
will elaborate further on the work of Reed and
Wilson in the next two weeks articles, but
I hope you will take the time to visit Hyde
Gallery here at 1110 E. 13th during one of the
next three weekends that this show is visible, or
come out and be with us for the opening at 6:00
this Friday night and meet all three artists!
