1. Lets get this straight;
its called a "gravel road." I drive a
pickup truck because I need to. No matter how slow you

it or get out of the way.

CARTHAGE LOSES ANOTHER.
Carthage has lost another of her
excellent teachers. This time it is Miss Mary E. Kennett,
who is one of the most experienced and successful primary
teachers in the Carthage schools.
During the recent meeting of the state
association of school boards, a member of the Kansas City
school board saw some specimens of work from Miss
Kennetts room in the exhibit at the Central school
and he was much impressed with them. He investigated in
regard to her further and the result is that a letter has
now come asking her to come to Kansas City at once to
take a position now open for her.
As the offer means a promotion and an
advance in salary she has accepted and will leave for
Kansas City tonight. This now makes eight teachers who
have been taken from the Carthage schools for positions
in Kansas City.
Vernon County prosecutor to
MSSU Board of
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Gov. Jay
Nixon today appointed Lynn M. Ewing III, the
prosecuting attorney of Vernon County, Mo., to
the Missouri Southern State University Board of
Ewing has served as Vernon
County prosecutor since 1999. Prior to his
service as prosecutor, Ewing was Mayor of the
City of Nevada from 1997 to 1998; at the time he
became Mayor, he had served on the City Council
"Missouri Southern State
University is a critical part of our
higher-education system, and I know Lynn Ewing
will help move this institution forward,"
Gov. Nixon said.
Ewing will fill the seat
vacated by David Ansley. Ansleys departure
follows offensive comments he made during a
recent meeting of the Board of Governors.
"The comments made by
David Ansley were inappropriate and
offensive," Gov. Nixon said. "After
learning of his remark, I was committed to
finding an appropriate replacement as quickly as
recyclin recycles I have ta wonder
bout the benefits of any of the plans.
Now my uncle, he lives a recyclin
life-style. He built his house from old
lumber, drives a used car with recapped
tires, reads his neighbors newspaper,
and is happily married to this third wife.
He frequents auctions and
saves hundreds of boxes of junk from
bein hauled to the dump and sells it to
the tourists in the flea market one piece at
He used ta buy a soda at
the fillin station and leave the empty
bottle in the rack, now hes told ta put
it in the trash. He used ta save his milk
bottles and exchange em with the dairy,
now its all plastic. He likes
chewin gum after its left on the bed
post overnight. He may be the originator of
the sayin about one mans trash is
another mans treasure.
This is some fact, but

HERES A TIP
When treating wooden
cutting boards, make sure you use mineral oil,
not cooking oil. Cooking oil can go rancid and
smell. This goes for wood counters as well.
"Push the cardboard
tube from a roll of paper towels into a pot of
sand or marbles to create a glove or hat drying
station. They will be propped up and open. To dry
a hat, I stick a plastic bowl upside down on the
tube and put the hat on that. If the pot is big
enough, you can stick more rolls in there to dry
several items at once." -- A.L. in Nebraska
Save it for the garden:
tea leaves (including bags), coffee grounds,
cooking water from starches like pasta and
potatoes, club soda and mineral water that has
gone flat, and even soapy dishwater. All have
nutrients your plants will appreciate.
"To keep yourself
from sleeping on your back, get a T-shirt that
has a pocket on it. Sew a racquetball into the
pocket, and wear the T-shirt backward. This has
worked wonders for my husband. He breathes much
better when he sleeps on his side." -- I.L.
"I always save my
Styrofoam egg cartons. My children use them for
all kinds of crafts, but mostly as paint pots.
They can sit brushes in the non-cup side, and if
they take a break, it can be re-covered and put
in the refrigerator for later." -- C.J. in
Shower caps make great
kitchen helpers. Use one to cover a bowl of
fresh-cut fruit, or on a bowl of rising bread. Or
use one to cover a plate of leftovers to deliver
to a friend.
