A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Dr. H. O. Scotts Sunday school
class surprised Miss Tillie King at her home on Grant
street last evening. Charades and games of various kinds
were the order of the evening, which was pleasantly
spent. Light refreshments were served. Miss Mabel
Hamilton photographed the group by flash light. Those
present were Dr. and Mrs. Scott, Misses Mabel Hamilton,
Ethel Brown, Minnie Gladden, Lillian Schooler, Maj. J. L.
Moore, and Messers, Jay Butcher, Robt. Elliott, Thurlow
Fellers, Duncan Hanna, and N. W. Boillot.
Mr. C. Fingerlee, of union township,
who is in Carthage today, says that when he crossed
Center creek this morning there was not a particle of
water flowing. Mr. Fingerlee is an old settler here but
says this is the first time he has seen the water so low
as that, which gives an idea of the extent and severity
of the present drought.
Statutory Measure Proposition C.
following proposal will appear on the August 3
primary ballot for all voting districts.
Proposed by 95th General
the Missouri Statutes be amended to:
Deny the government authority to penalize
citizens for refusing to purchase private health
insurance or infringe upon the right to offer or
accept direct payment for lawful healthcare
Modify laws regarding the liquidation of certain
domestic insurance companies?
estimated this proposal will have no immediate
costs or savings to state or local governmental
entities. However, because of the uncertain
interaction of the proposal with implementation
of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable
Care Act, future costs to state governmental
entities are unknown."
In the oil patch there is a thing
called tank "bottoms." This is the
thick gooey stuff that settles to the bottom
of the oil tank out in the field. Its
not good for much since they wont let
ya dump in on the dirt roads anymore.
When the gauger comes ta
check your tank for the buyer, they check ta
see how much bottom there is in a tank. Too
much and they wont buy the oil.
The usual practice is to
stir the bottom up real good as ya pump the
oil outa the tank so as ta get
everthing floatin so it flows.
Course the buyers
know the practice, thats one a the
reasons they wont buy from tanks with
over a few inches of bottom.
Usually its not the
stirrin that causes the most problems,
it what floats to the surface that folks
dont want to deal with.
This is some fact, but
Just Jake Talkin.
NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
Our final weekend for the
Annual Membership Show approaches and if you have
not had the chance to come by to view the 60
works of a number of our member artists, you have
three more chances to do so--- Friday, Saturday
and Sunday from noon until 5:00! After this show
closes, we will be empty for a short while to
allow the two week childrens art Camp to
take place here at artCentral, July 19-31. I am
pleased that we currently have 35 students signed
up for most of the 29 classes offered this year.
If you have a child or know of a child who has
interest in art, please tell them about artCamp!
This years camp promises to be better than
ever, with six artist-instructors teaching daily.
Our teachers include local artist and high school
art instructor Cheryl Church-Saving who will lead
classes in hemp jewelry making, macramé weaving,
pop up book construction and watercolor pencils.
Sean Fitzgibbon, fine art graduate, Fayetteville,
Arkansas, will return to lead classes in Manga
drawing, comic and cartoon drawing, perspective
drawing, and creating from old books. Martha
Goldman from Joplin is a recent fine arts
graduate from KU and will lead classes in
creating mosaics with hard candy, Amigurumi,
sculptures with plastic soda bottles "a la
Dale Chilhuly", creating artistic chairs,
Manga toy design and a mixed media bird project.
Our good friend Randy Wright, Joplin, and former
Carthage R-9 art teacher at Columbian, returns
with great classes in Clay 101, "model
magic" new worlds, broken toy sculptures,
jewelry from sculpty clay, & dragon design
with plaster gauze. Tom Jones returns after a few
years off to bring classes in watercolor 101,
charcoal drawing, sculpty photo holder craft,
& china tea cup decoration. Last, our veteran
teacher, Carl Junction art teacher Anne Marie
Gailey will be teaching units on Egypt I &
II, Alice In Wonderland, rainforest building,
wire sculpture, and ancient lettering techniques.
Get those registration forms back to me as soon
as you can, as classes are filling fast. If you
need a registration card or an information form,
the hot-pink copies can be found at the Carthage
Public Library and here on the front porch at
Hyde House, 1110 E. 13th. Camp time approaches
and let your child be part of the fun!
