A woman has twins and gives them up for
adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is
The other goes to a family in Spain;
they name him "Juan."
Years later, Juan sends a picture of
himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture,
she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a
picture of Ahmal.
Her husband responds, "If
youve seen Juan, youve seen Ahmal."

A FINE ORE STRIKE
Chas. Blair and
Find Stuff South
of Pleasant Valley.
Chas. Blair and Thomas Hackney, who
have been sinking a shaft south of Pleasant Valley, made
a fine strike at a depth of 163 this morning. They went
into a splendid body of jack, the full extent of which
has not yet been determined. The strike is of great
importance as indicating a still greater area of ore
deposits in this vicinity.

As a kid the idea was that
there was value in havin character.
Course character is built as we all
know. Ever time ya didnt get to
do somethin ya wanted, it created one
more buildin block of character.
Birthdays and Christmas
always contributed to the construction.
Didnt get that special toy, build a
little more character.
Have ta mow the lawn while
the kids across the street were playin
ball? Another contribution. Im
thinkin its probly a good
idea to accumulate all the character ya can,
if for no other reason than to help offset
those occasional flaws that seem to linger
I suppose the greatest
value of gatherin a little character is
the fact that you might recognize it in
others. Its hard to define, but ya know
it when ya see it.
This is some fact, but

ART NOTES from
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
Wednesday the board of
directors of artCentral enjoyed a special holiday
lunch together in addition to our regular monthly
meeting. One of my duties as director is to feed
the board at noontime once a month, and in
December we make it a bit fancier affair. I
welcomed all but one of our 10 member board and a
meal was enjoyed together before our regular
business meeting. Business included primarily the
approval of the exhibition calendar for the new
season, 2012, beginning in February. I will tell
you that we have a great group of artists lined
up beginning February 17th with the first group
exhibition of the recently organized Joplin
Regional Arts Coalition. These 50+ artists will
display one piece per member, and their work will
remain in both galleries through March 4th. The
second exhibition begins March 23rd and features
the abstract paintings of Springfield artist Dale
Augustson. Dale will lead a weekend workshop
during the three weekends his show remains in the
gallery, through April 8th. Then we feature
beginning April 27th the oil paintings of artist
John Lasater, remaining through May 13th. Fourth
is another group show, beginning May 25th and
through June 10th by the Midwest Clay Artists,
which may include a weekend pottery fair on the
grounds. Later in June on the 22nd is the Annual
Membership Show in both galleries through July
8th. We will open a new show in September on the
14th after artCamp, with portrait painter Alice
Lynn Greenwood which will continue through the
30th, and following that will be the third group
show for the season on October 12th. The artists
of "Day Trippers" plein aire group will
be bringing paintings which will remain through
the 28th. Our final exhibition on November 9th
will feature artists Donna Roberts, painter, and
her daughter Kelly Moreland and her fiber art,
and will run through the 25th. Eight shows
featured next year, and possibly some Member
Gallery displays as well. We hope you will come
out next season!
