CUT BY A BUTCHER
Victim of an Accident at the Slaughter House.
While Rose Crandall and Tom Rutherford

Stops Increase in October.
Police Chief Greg Dagnan
reported to the Public Safety Committee last
Monday that the department made 760 traffic stops
during the month of October. This compares to 554
for the same month last year.
When questioned by Committee
Chair Bill Welch, the Chief said that the
increase is not a case of over exuberance by the
officers. He said he watches closely the ratio of
tickets to warnings, and he considers the current
ratio of two warnings issued for every ticket to
be a good indication that stops are not made
Dagnan also reported that
overall arrests for the year to date are up from
3080 last year to 4914 this year. He told the
committee that part of that increase in the fact
that the force is operating with a full staff of
officers this year.
In other business, the
committee voted to accept a bid from Galbraiths
to replace carpet in most of the Police Station.
The Chief requested that twenty-four in square
carpet tiles be used so heavy traffic areas could
be replaced as needed without replacing all

What may not have been so
evident is the almost complete extinction of
another appliance that was common when fans
were always runnin and windows were
open in an office, the paper weight.
Course now that
computers are eliminatin at least some
of the paper bein used in the office,
the future of this formerly useful device in
almost certainly doomed for eternity. My
guess is that few mourn the absence of these
functional desk ornaments, now hidden in a
drawer with the ash tray.

NOTES from Hyde House
Armstrong, Director of artCentral
In 2004 artCentral hired a new
director, a professional artist with art
publishing experience, Carol Adamec. Carol was
living in the area for a short time as caretaker
to her parents, and came to artCentral when it
became possible to pay a part-time person as
director. During her tenure of one year, Carol
produced a more professional newsletter, and
began other innovations that we have continued
today. When she resigned in the fall of 2005, she
moved to New Mexico to pursue her art again full
time. A native of Chicago, Illinois, this artist
earned her Bachelors Degree of Fine Arts in
drawing and painting from the Art Institute of
Chicago. Since then, she has been involved in art
in the capacities of painter, gallery director,
art instructor, arts administrator, and art
business coach. She currently lives in Orlando,
Florida. "It is truly a great pleasure and
heartwarming honor for me to be invited to
exhibit my paintings at artCentral, where I was
fortunate to serve as Director. Following my
retirement from the arts administration field in
2007, I returned to the studio to resume my
pursuit of capturing light and beauty as an oil
painter. Since I have been traveling back and
forth between Albuquerque and Orlando during the
past three years-- two very beautiful and very
different landscapes-- I have added plein air
painting to my repertoire. Mostly I work on small
canvases and panels, painting simple objects of
my personal environment, views photographs,
memory and imagination. Consistent in all of the
work is my desire for capturing the light that
makes the world seem alive and beautiful."
See Carols work in the Member Gallery
beginning this weekend, in her show entitled
"IN NATURAL LIGHT" and visit with her
at the artists reception Friday night
beginning at 6:00, along with featured Main
Gallery artist Ken Southwick. This exhibition
remains in the gallery through December 5th.
