A man walked
into a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Stop, and asked for all the
money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too
small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the
counter himself, for three hours until police showed up
and grabbed him.
Police in Los Angeles, had good luck
with a robbery suspect who just couldnt control
himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man
in the lineup to repeat the words,

He said he had fallen off a hoister
platform, and that when he hit, his head and shoulders
extended over the mouth of the shaft.
He was about to slip head first into
the shaft when one of his fellow workmen caught him and
saved him from death. The man did not state his name nor
the shaft at which he was working, but it is thought he
got off here and probably lives here.
The Maple Leaf Festival
Committee and the Carthage Convention and
Visitors Bureau have announced the return
of the Maple Leaf Festival Lighting Contest. As
with the original campaign in 1967, Carthage
residents will be encouraged to decorate yards
and businesses to illuminate and celebrate the
changing of the season. Prizes will be awarded
and the displays will be available for public
night viewing during the Maple Leaf Festival,
October 10-17, 2009.
"When the Maple Leaf
Festival Committee made the lighting contest
suggestion, I felt it was a great fit for the
Convention and Visitors Bureau to
sponsor," says Wendi Douglas, Carthage CVB
Director. "Carthage has been voted a
beautiful city time and time again and
highlighting the area at night seemed a unique
opportunity for visiting leaf lovers.
Additionally, the CVB has offered trees to
residents and businesses the last two falls
through our Re-Leaf Program and the contest takes
the Re-Leaf Program a bit further."
The displays must be within
Carthage city limits. Applications are available
at the Carthage Chamber of Commerce.
An old sayin in the
antique business is that anything is worth
exactly what someone is willin to pay
for it. It works with antiques, the stock
market, and in puttin in streets.
Goin out for bids on
big projects for the City is time
consumin and a hassle for the bidders.
It does however, seem ta keep prices in line
and keep those pencils sharp.
What always seems strange
is how sometimes the bids are so far apart
for the same work. Most of the time there are
pretty tight bids in the mix, but ever
now and then they are all over the board.
Tryin to outguess
bidders seems ta be next ta impossible. All
you can do is play your game and hope for a

NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
Those that attend our next
Opening of a new exhibition this Friday night
will be in for a nice surprise. We are not quite
there yet, but parking is now available for about
twelve cars at a time on the property thanks to
collaboration between ourselves and our trust
officer at UMB, Lora Phelps. We have a newly cut
driveway and parking area that will be in
finished asphalt just as soon as tree work is
completed on the property, and what a difference
it will make to those visiting the gallery to be
able to pass on the driveway and actually park in
parking areas! We are paying for a portion of
this improvement project and the bank, our trust
manager, is paying for the rest from the
Katherine Hyde Trust. Our thanks to those of you
our members who pay your yearly membership fees
to enable us to do things such as this to improve
the property for both our activities and the
activities of those renting the building, whether
inside or out. I hope you will be with us
beginning at 6:00 Friday evening for a beautiful
showing of ceramic work by artists Jed Schlegel
of Joplin and Gregory Krepps of Pittsburg in this
new show entitled "LINE AND SHADOW". I
attempted to explain a bit about these
artists two very different styles of
pottery in my two preceding articles, and please
know that these very talented artists have spent
the better part of the past two days here laying
out and hanging their very wonderful and unusual
work for you to view. We are most thankful to two
of our fine local business for the gift of
underwriting for this show, those being Southwest
Missouri Bank and Otts Food Products. It is
due to their generosity that we are able to bring
this exhibit to our area, and we appreciate them
greatly for this contribution of their valuable
donation funding. After the exhibition opens on
Friday night, it will be shown Saturday and
Sunday noon to 5:00, and then each weekend
following, Friday through Sundays from noon until
5:00, ending on Sunday October 4th. I hope you
will come to see what we are bringing to you in a
very impressive showing of these mens fine
