A couple of
good ol boys Cleatis and Billy-Bob from down
Georgia ways are out in the woods on a possum hum when
one of them falls to the ground. He doesnt seem to
be breathing and his eyes are rolled back in his head.
The Cleatis starts to panic, then whips
out his cell phone and calls 911. He frantically blurts
out to the operator, "O my gawd! Help! My bud
Billy-Bob just died. He jest keeled over. Hes dead,
I tell ya! What can I do?"

Theres a short pause, and then

says, "OK, now what?"

BIG FIRE AT GALENA.
Foundry and Machine Works Totally Destroyed-Loss $20,000.
Galena was visited by a disastrous fire
Saturday evening about 5:30 oclock, when the Galena
foundry and machine works, owned by Col. W.B. Stone, was
totally destroyed by fire. The fire originated in the
foundry department and was soon beyond control. The only
things saved from the fire were a plane and lathe. The
loss is placed at $20,000; no insurance.
Col. Stone announced that he would
commence to rebuild Monday morning.
The institution was one of the old
landmarks of Galena and was built in 1884 by Collins
Bros., and came into the hands of Col. W.B. Stone in
1887, and has been in his control ever since.

On 03/24/10 at approximately

Dawson was also arrested for an active probation

methamphetamine, marijuana, and narcotic

I was reminded the other
day about a lesson by the author/teacher
Peter Drucker. If youre not familiar,
he may be considered the most knowledgeable
management type person around.
He thinks there are three
things management must always be concerned
with, productivity, liquidity, and tomorrow.
Unfortunately tomorrow doesnt lend
itself to be easily calculated to the bottom
line. There are some things that are at best
an educated guess.
todays dollars are effectively spent
while keepin an eye on tomorrow can be
tricky, but havin some type of plan may
help the City retain the quality of life
weve grown accustomed to.
This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
I am most pleased to present
the first "all sculpture" exhibition
since my taking the directorship of artCentral.
The three artists featured in this new show
entitled, "THREE DIMENSIONAL ELEMENTS"
are all veteran sculptors and long time members
of artCental. M.Justin Hale, who resides in
Joplin, sculpts in wood. Robin Putnam and Bill
Snow are both from Carthage, and work in stone.
Bill works in bronze as well. There will be at
least ten pieces from each artist, and some are
very small for those who are interested in
portability! But as you may suspect, some of the
pieces will be larger and heavier, but still
affordable. Additionally, Robin is a former
volunteer-director of artCentral, the first of
the artist-directors that will show this year.
She began as an artist in other media, but moved
to stone sculpting under the direction and
teaching of Bill Snow, and she has produced some
beautiful pieces over the years that she has
maintained her own studio. Bill needs no
introduction to Carthage if you have seen and
appreciated his bronze sculpture of Marlin
Perkins in Central Park or the "Alice in
Wonderland" bronze at the library. We are
pleased to welcome a new underwriter, that being
Locarni Marble, and how appropriate! Along as
well are Pat & Judy Goff as underwriters, and
as Judy will be cooking the food for the
reception, a real treat is in store as she is a
marvelous cook. She is even bringing along some
of her family members to assist and serve, and we
welcome them as well. I look forward to a large
crowd, but hope you know you too are invited to
attend the opening reception that begins at 6:00
on Friday, March 26th and will remain in the
gallery through April 11th. Come out and see what
I know will be a memorable display by three
seasoned veterans in their media of choice.
