1. January 2000: Kathleen Robertson of
Austin, Texas was awarded $780,000 by a jury of her peers
after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was
running inside a furniture store. The owners of the store
were understandably surprised at the verdict, considering
the misbehaving little brat was Ms. Robertsons son.
2. June 1998: A 19 year old Carl Truman
of Los Angeles won $74,000 and medical expenses when his
neighbor ran over his hand with a Honda Accord. Mr.
Truman apparently didnt notice there was someone at
the wheel of the car, when he was trying to steal his
3. Kara Alton of Claymont, Delaware

A. H. Goldstein
A. H. Goldstein has rented the building
on the north side of the square vacated sometime ago by
Keim & McMillan, and expects to remove his wholesale
and retail clothing and furnishing stock to his new
quarters about the middle of May. By this change he will
secure about 2,500 square feet more floor space which he
has been much in need of. He will use both floors the
upstairs being devoted to the sample room and wholesale
department and the downstairs to the retail store.
On 03/12/2010, a car stop led
officers to 722 E 2nd to investigate identity
theft. Officers recovered documents for 6
separate victims that were being used for
employment. Ricardo Vidal-Sanchez age 28, Reina
Matul-Alvarado age 28, and Guadalupe
Matul-Alvarado age 21 were arrested on probable
cause for forgery. Local Immigration &
Customs Officials were contacted and placed a
hold on these three suspects for immigration
violations. Warrants were issued on these
suspects charging them with forgery. There was no
bond set because of their legal status.
At approximately 10:00 p.m. on
03/17/2010 the Carthage Police Department was
notified of a stolen vehicle that was taken from
an apartment complex parking lot in the west part
of Carthage at some point between approximately
5:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. on that same date. The
victim, a 27 year old female, advised that the
vehicle was a white 2003 Ford Focus. An
investigation into the incident continues.
Its the time a year
that folks start payin close attention
to the weather. Those thunder clouds start
rollin and spinnin gets the hair
up on the back of the neck for anyone who has
been close to a tornado.
Ive never been smack
dab in the middle of one, but have on
occasion been hunkered down within a
few blocks from the path. I have felt a
travel trailer raise up a might as one passed
Like most, I dont
have an unnatural fear of natural disasters,
but I do have a healthy respect for the power
of a twister in the spring time. Ive
heard various suggestions over the years as
ta how to deal with a tornado comin
your way. The best of all is the simple
"DUCK." Keep your head down and let
it blow over. Not bad advice for other
adverse situations too I suppose.
This is some fact, but

THIS IS A HAMMER
By Samantha Mazzotta
DEAR HAMMER: I read your recent
article about removing dust created by drywall
replacement, and it brought me to my feet. I
renovate buildings strictly from the 1800s, and
nine years ago was exposed to a falling plaster
ceiling above which was a thick layer of coal
dust (the building had been heated with coal for
100 years). Coal dust gets everywhere, as
its very fine.
We constantly get exposed to
stuff like this in my field -- we cant
always open a window, because for one reason, we
like to be warm while we work. I took what I
learned in jet mechanic school in the Marine
Corps, and started looking for a filtering
fabric. After much testing, I think I solved the
My company has a filter that
can clear dust from thousands of cubic feet of
air in a room, including fine particulates like
drywall, coal dust, asbestos, even pet hair and
molds. The filter fits fans upwards of 60 inches
in size and can be washed and air-dried for
reuse. Its great for demolition work.
Would you mention my product to
your readers? Thanks for helping me get the word
to those that need it! -- Patrick Sheehan, CEO,
Demo Air Net LLC
DEAR PATRICK: Sure! As someone
with allergies who suffers during even light
repair and cleaning work, I stay on the look out
for good filtering systems. This product is an
affordable addition to a forced-air removal
system, so if youre doing demo work -- or
any work that generates a lot of dust in a room
--consider purchasing this filter.
