Lisa was out driving her car and while stopped
at a red light, the car just died. It was a busy
intersection and the traffic behind her was starting to
pile up. The guy in the car directly behind her was
honking his horn continuously as Lisa continued to try
getting the car to start up again.
Finally Lisa gets out of her car and
approaches the guy in the car behind her. "I
cant seem to get my car started," Lisa said,
smiling. "Would you be a sweetheart and go and see
if you can get it started for me. Ill stay here in
your car and lean on your horn for you."
The line separating painfully bad
analogies from weirdly good ones is as thin as a soup
made from the shadow of a chicken that was starved to
death by Abraham Lincoln.
Her artistic sense was exquisitely
refined, like someone who can tell butter from I
Cant Believe Its Not Butter.
It came down stairs looking much like
something no one had ever seen before.

TOM DOUGLAS DEAD.
Former Policeman Passed
Tom Douglas, the well known
ex-policeman of Carthage, died this morning at 5
oclock at his rooms over Kellys store, on
North Main street. He has been gradually failing for some
time from creeping paralysis. The deceased was 53 years
old and leaves a wife, a brother, Andrew M. Douglas of
Carthage, and a sister, Mrs. Jas. Graham, who arrived
with her husband from Eldorado Springs this afternoon.
Mr. Douglas has been cared for during
his illness by the Woodmen of the World, under whose
auspices the funeral will be conducted at the Methodist
church tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. by Dr. J. W. Stewart and
Elder J. C. Grissom.

Program on Thursday, 11 November, 2010 at the
Carthage Memorial Hall.
The Heartland Band will begin
playing at 10:30 A.M. and the program will begin
at 11:00 A.M.
The program will include the
Carthage Veterans Alliance posting the Colors
followed by the Pledge of Allegiance to the
American Flag. That will be followed by the
National Anthem, and opening prayer by Sonny
Elder, Chaplain of the Carthage VFW post.
The Heartland Band will play a
patriotic piece of music of their choice and
followed by the playing of the marching music of
each of the branches of military service.
(Veterans are asked to stand when the music for
their branch of service is played.)
Jerry Chapman (emcee and
Commander of the Carthage American Legion Post)

NOTES from Hyde House
Armstrong, Director of artCentral
Plans are underway for a couple
of special anniversary events in December
sponsored by artCentral. One will be a special
day for children, an afternoon December 12th
where kids will each create a holiday candy house
in the Hyde House kitchen. More on this event in
a future article. A board sub-committee is
working on a special dinner event we are calling
"Jewels of the Vine" to be held
December 17th at Broadview Country Club. Members
and guests will attend a fine dinner, with wines
for those that indulge, for a donation of $25.00.
In additional to musical entertainment and the
sale and display of silver jewelry by some of our
artist members to reflect our silver anniversary,
there will be the raffle of a fine oil painting
kindly and generously donated to artCentral
recently by local artist Bob Tommey. As a Texas
transplant a number of years ago, Bob was truly
the first founder of the concept of artCentral in
this community, and we were thrilled when he
contacted us with the offer of one of his very
valuable original oil paintings for us to do with
as we wished. After securing permission from the
board of directors, the planning committee for
the dinner event decided to begin accepting
requested donations of $25.00 each, as chances
for this painting. This large framed oil of a
single white rooster with bright red wattle and
comb standing in a western fort or stockade
features a very light colored foreground and is
not typical subject matter of a "Bob
Tommey", has been warmly received as it has
been exhibited here at Hyde House. We will
continue to accept donations for chances next
weekend, during the final weekend of this current
exhibition, and then it will be shown the three
weekends of the November show before it follows
us to the venue of the dinner on December 17th
when it will go home with a lucky winner! We are
facing the last weekend of "Spring River
Artists: Catching the Current" and the five
women artists in this incredible exhibition of
sculpture, jewelry and oil paintings which will
remain in the gallery through Sunday the 7th.
Come by and view our Tommey painting and take in
this beautiful showing of art by these talented
