All the jurors but one voted to convict her. The one
juror was so determined that the woman should be found
innocent that she eventually was able to change the mind
of all the others, and they all voted "not
Afterwards, the juror who had held out
for the innocent vote was questioned by reporters, who
asked her how she could have been so certain the woman on
trial was innocent. She replied, "Well, I dont
know. I guess I just felt sorry for her. After all, she
is a widow."

Flanigan to Participate.
Rep. Tom Flanigan, R-Carthage,
has been invited by Supreme Court Judge Patricia
Breckenridge and 2010 Supreme Court Fellow Mary
More Johnson to participate on a civic education
committee. This committee will meet in
conjunction with the annual meeting of The
Missouri Bar and coordinate its efforts with
those of the Citizenship Education Department of
The Missouri Bar.
The goal of the committee will
be to look at the structure, mission and future
focus of statewide judicial civic education for
Missouris students the general public to
enhance the understanding of the judicial
"As the son of a
practicing lawyer; the grandson of a former
President of the Missouri Bar; the great-grandson
of a former State Legislator; and the nephew of a
former Missouri Court of Appeals Judge; I have
been taught that its very important to
educate our citizens, and especially our children
on the three branches of government," Rep.
Flanigan said. "Its an honor to be a
part of this discussion."
I havent checked gas
prices in the last thirty minutes, so no
tellin where they are right now.
Over the weekend I happened
to be travelin and looks like an
additonal fifteen to twenty-five cents higher
is the norm tween here and Wichita.
From what Ive seen
here in town, a couple of the stations have
been tryin to get the prices in line
with the rest of the region by puttin
their price up for a day or at least a few
hours. When everone else doesnt
bring their price up with em, they drop
back down. Its a game that looks like
is keepin the consumer happy, but
likely drivin the owners of the gas
pumps a little crazy.
Carthage still seems ta
have the cheapest prices around.
This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
Armstrong, Director of artCentral
Monday I will receive the new
art in the gallery for our next exhibition, the
photography of Linda Teeter in a new show
entitled "GRAFFITI: Urban Art" I am at
the same time busy with the plans for a special
event/party which will accompany the new
Invitations for each will be
going out this week, but the public is also
invited to attend either, and I will be placing
information around in the "community"
for pick-up. Our horse sculpture that was donated
by artist Rachel Wilson is in place and can be
viewed at both events. We will be doing a formal
dedication with that artist later. Meanwhile, I
would like to share some new information that
Linda has given me regarding her show which will
open September 24th here at Hyde House in the
Main Gallery: "This is my study of
graffiti-sprayed, artistic and colorful
expressions left in several cities and towns I
visited done by mostly unknown artists. Their
names are not known, or in some cases, the
artists are known only by
"graffiti-artist-aliases." My purpose
in photographing and my basic query was to see
whether these artists had created there to simply
play and do mischief, to be destructive vandals,
or to inspire communication. Some photographs
show gang colors, some express anger or love or
misguided celebrations. For whatever reason,
these are a creative vernacular that currently
cover the early 1940s buildings in the West
Bottoms area of Kansas City, urban street corners
of New Orleans, and some Joplin abandoned
storefronts. These are the venues I visited.
Architecture was standing lone and neglected, now
reborn with renewed meaning by the creations of
gypsy-artists that arrive at dawn to leave their
marks which might wash off in a first morning
rain, or perhaps remain for the surfaces
eternity. My portrayal of the images is the
"art of the art." I find it difficult
to imagine street-scapes without graffiti!"
We invite you to attend beginning at 6:00 pm,
Friday the 24th of September to meet the artist
and view the work. Next week I will share with
you about an artist I know as well as I know
