UP TO UTLEY WEDGE.
To Prosecute Man Who
Stole Half a Million From Rockefeller.
Under big headlines the Kansas City
papers tell of the authority of Utley Wedge of Carthage,
receiver, to dispose of the case of Frank Siegel, who by
expert book examination, has just been discovered to have
stolen $500,000 from Frank Rockefeller. The latter
refuses to prosecute and says it is up to Mr. Wedge.
Siegel, representing the Siegel-Sanders
Commission Co., covered up his deals by means of
"straw men" and second mortgages. Rockefeller
has just paid out $251,000 losses on paper guaranteed by
Siegel. Siegel lost on the board of trade and is being
prosecuted by other parties.
An unsuccessful effort was made in June
to oust Mr. Wedge from the receivership.
The Gov. Nixon reminds young
Missourians that state law banning texting while
driving is now in affect.
Gov. Jay Nixon joined local and
state law enforcement officers in Springfield to
remind young Missourians that the states
prohibition on texting while driving is now in
force. This law prohibits drivers 21 and younger
from sending, reading or receiving text messages
while behind the wheel. Also present for this
announcement were State Representatives Charlie
Norr and Sara Lampe.
"These are busy travel
times for Missouri youth, as thousands of
students hit the road to head back to high school
and college all across the state," Gov.
Nixon said. "This change in the law to ban
texting will help protect the safety of these
less experienced drivers, their passengers and
other motorists. We want to educate young drivers
and their parents so they know about this new
rule of the road and put away their cell phone,
Blackberry or other texting device when behind
Sales figures for tissues
and cold medicine are no doubt leadin
the economic recovery. Seems everone I
run into has the sniffles. The local stock of
various remedies seems to be adequate.
Onea my problems is I have
ta read all the ingredients and compare
prices fore I decide what drug
Ill experiment with this year.
Ive found that it is best to pick up
that box of tissues before ya go to the drug
section. That way if a sudden sneeze comes on
while your readin the labels, you got a
tissue handy. Course I still call all
tissues Kleenex, but there is a wide variety
of those also. With lotion, two ply, three
ply, bargain brand, extra soft, etc.
Thats all well and good while your
shoppin, but when the urge strikes, any
old tissue will do.
This is some fact, but

HERES A TIP
Use dental floss to cut
cheesecakes and crumbly cakes. Cut a piece long
enough to cover the diameter of the cake (and
then some). Lay it across your line to cut and
firmly press down while pulling the ends away
from each other. When you get to the bottom, pull
out to one side for a perfectly finished cut.
Place a piece of clear
tape over the labels of prescriptions as soon as
you get them, and verify all information. This
will protect the dosing and medication name if
the label gets wet or just handled too much.
"If you need to
tighten up the screw on a drawer pull or knob,
paint it with clear nail polish first. Quickly
insert it back in and screw tightly. It will hold
in the wood better." -- P.I. in Alabama
Ice-cube trays are the
best thing ever -- they are great for so many
things. Here are two of my favorites: Use one to
sort beads or hardware. Also, freeze juice in
cubes, then use them either as ice cubes for
water or for mini Popsicles.

Saskatchewan, Canada, writes: "Copy and
disperse historical photos, documents and records
so that if something happens to the originals, at
least someone will have copies and that part of
history will not be lost forever." Good
Go Green Tip: Start a
compost bin. Its easy and requires not too
much effort to maintain, once you get the hang of
it. Besides, kitchen and yard waste represent 30
percent of trash. Get great instructions and
