A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Moved a Large Tree.
J.S. Caudle with only one helper has
just completed a job of tree moving of rather unusual
magnitude. He transferred a hard maple tree 12 inches in
diameter about 80 feet from one part of Steve
Chitwoods yard to another. Mr. Chitwood wishes to
erect a new barn, and as the tree was in the way he had
it moved up near the house, where its shade will be very
agreeable. Before being trimmed it was over 30 feet high,
and nearly large enough to make a saw log.
McFarland and Hall have just received
an auditorium sized, Washington guitar which cost $25.
This is something entirely novel in this line, and the
gentlemen say that no such instrument has ever been
brought here before. E.O. Burrel has purchased it.
Only Two Contested races.
The deadline for filing for
Jasper County elected offices passed last Tuesday
resulting in only two contested races for the
August 3 primary.
Incumbent Linda Williams will
face Milissa Holcomb of Joplin for the Circuit
Clerk nomination for the Republican party. No
Current Presiding Commissioner
John Bartosh will have three individuals to
retain his position.
David Troyer of Carthage, Jeff
Hammons of Carl Junction, and James Ivan
Pendergraft have all filed as candidates for the
Republican party. No Democrats filed.
Unopposed positions that are up
for reelection include Associate Judge Division
5, Richard Copeland; Associate Judge Division 4
Joesph "Joe" Schoeberl; Associate Judge
Division 6 Stephen P. Carlton; County Auditor
Richard M. Webster, Jr.; Recorder Donna Grove;
County Clerk Bonnie Earl; Prosecuting Attorney
Dean G. Dankelson; and Collector of Revenue
Stephen H. Holt.
An Independent has also shown
interest in the Commissioner seat, but wont
have to file until the November election.
Its amazin how
one person bein a jerk can mess up a
Made a quick stop at the
local grocery on the way home from work the
other day. Back out on the parkin lot,
happened to notice a fresh scrape on the
front fender. Not a big bang, just a little
impression bout ten inches long. The
bumper on the car sittin in the next
stall appeared to have a little fresh paint.
What a pain.
The small insult
probly wont warrant the hassle of
goin to a body shop. A little extra
rubbin durin the next wax job
will probly make the injury
unnoticeable my most passersby, but
ever time the car gets washed, there
will be the reminder of the jerk who
wouldnt at least apologize for
wreckin my day.
This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
Outside the wind is blowing,
but the sun is shining and we are looking for
visitors today to view the beautiful sculptures
being shown here at Hyde House, our first day!
Last nights opening reception was a huge
success, we again had a very large crowd in
attendance, and all were very complimentary about
the work being shown. Each of our three
presenting sculptors, M. Justin Hale, Robin
Putnam, and Bill Snow were present to discuss
their works in wood, limestone, alabaster, and
bronze. I want to again extend a special thanks
to our friends at Locarni Marble for the
underwriting of this exhibit and opening
reception, with very special thanks to the
extended family of Pat & Judy Goff for
physically attending the entire evening as
"servers", tending to the drinks, food
table and kitchen. This is the first time that
underwriters have offered this help, and it was
most appreciated! But saving the "best for
last", the Goffs not only underwrote
the show with their business, Judy Goff actually
cooked/baked the wonderful food for the
reception, and what fantastic response she had.
Several attendees have offered her the job of
cooking for additional art receptions, if she
would make again the delicious torte rusticia ( a
wonderful flaky corn meal and flour crust with
three cheeses, ham, and spinach baked inside) .
She also made orange lace cookies, which were
gone before the evening was over, and a fudge
cookie that was superb! Thanks Judy for both the
generosity of your time as well as effort in
making last night truly a great success. Please
visit our gallery for the next weekends, Friday
through Sunday from noon to 5:00 to see this
beautiful, locally created work. The exhibit
remains in the gallery through April 11th.
