A Chronological Record of Events as they have

To Advertise Carthage.
Directors Will Hold a Special Meeting Tonight.
W.T. Williams, agent for the Frisco
Line Magazine, is in the city with a proposition that the
Commercial Club Directors will consider tonight at a
special meeting to be held at 8 o clock in Howard
Mr. Williams proposes to print a
two-page article descriptive of Carthage each month in
the Frisco Line Magazine and circulate 5,000 copies for
$100 a year. The articles are to be contributed by
Carthage people. Mr. Williams leaves the city in morning,
hence the special meeting of the directors tonight.
Neosho, Monett, and Eureka Springs have
already gone into the scheme, and the articles are quite
President J.J. Wells interviewed a
member of the business men on the proposition today and
is of the opinion that the scheme will be readily
The City Council has approved
the recommendation of the Public Safety Committee
to allow funds to be shifted in the budget so as
to allow the Police Department to purchase a
computerized traffic ticket system.
The digiTicket system allows
officers to scan a drivers license and
instantly enter all information rather than
physically entering that information. When fully
implemented the system could also allow for
warrant checks and prior violation records. The
information would also be transferred
electronically to the police and city court
computers, eliminating additional time entering
the information again.
The system, along with the cost
to upgrade existing software in police and city
computer systems, is expected to cost
The Police Department received
a DWI Vehicle from the state that resulted in the
Department not spending about $32,000 for a
scheduled car replacement. The Council approved
using those funds, along with other unused
capital funding for the digiTicket system.
I came to the conclusion
several years ago that the tough part of
bein a publisher or editor isnt
figurin out what to put in a
publication, theres lots a stuff that
might be fit ta print. The really tough calls
are figurin out what not ta put in.
Thats why, for
instance, we dont print letters to the
editor that arent signed. There have
been several that have arrived in unmarked
envelopes that were well written, and made
valid points. I just wish whoever wrote
em would stand up and take credit so we
could print the things.
We also get suggestions
ever now and then of some investigative
reportin that oughta be done. Most are
based on one rumor or another that has been
embellished for effect. Some sound like
interestin stories all right, just
arent based on much fact.
And, after all, this is at
least some fact, but mostly,

NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
Plans are underway for the next
exhibition for this year, that being various
mediums of sculpture from three local artist/
sculptors M. Justin Hale of Joplin and Robin
Putnam and Bill Snow of Carthage. Bill Snow has
representation of his work in various public
places that you may are familiar with, the most
visible being the bronze figure of Marlin Perkins
in Central Park and the bronze figure of Alice in
Wonderland in the Library Garden. On highway 44
everyone has seen the carving in limestone of
"Long Horn" located at the stockyards.
But Bill also works in smaller sizes and we look
forward to presenting several pieces of his
latest work. Robin Putnam, who studied under Snow
for a number of years in her "stone carving
beginnings", works in various stone medium
and has created some beautiful pieces in recent
years, several of which will be shown here for
the first time. Both of these artists are
exhibitors at the Midwest Gathering of the
Artists each year. M. Justin Hale works primarily
in wood, usually "found wood", and his
work has won numerous awards in recent years at
SPIVA and here at our own Membership Show. He too
works very large, but also very small. I am so
excited to present these three in an opening on
March 26th, and we are pleased to welcome all 19
new members to attend this new show! From both
last months membership drive as well as the
recent Jerry Ellis watercolor workshop we have
received 19 new memberships to artCentral. The
workshop was a huge success with 14
adult/students attending, several who had never
been in our door! Welcome to the three of these
participants who joined us as well. From this
workshop, we now have a group of painters who
have decided to begin meeting on Thursdays every
week to paint together here, and if you are
interested in joining this informal group,
contact me for more information. I look for them
to begin coming this week, and continue
practicing what they learned from Jerry, but any
painter is invited to come and work on personal
projects. This has been a dream of ours, and I am
so glad this group is beginning--- its
easier to set aside painting time when you have
company. Join them!
