Two cannibals meet one day. The first cannibal
says, "You know, I just cant seem to get a
tender Missionary. Ive baked them, Ive
roasted them, Ive stewed them, Ive barbecued
them, Ive tried every sort of marinade. I just
cannot seem to get them tender."
The second cannibal asks, "What
kind of Missionary do you use?"
The other replied, "You know, the
ones that hang out at that place at the bend of the
river. They have those brown cloaks with a rope around
the waist and theyre sort of bald on top with a
funny ring of hair on their heads."
"Ah, ha!" the second cannibal
replies. "No wonder... those are friars!"

Jury Returned Guilty
The guilt or innocence of Thomas
Kettlewell charged with raping his 10-year-old
stepdaughter was left in the hands of the 12 jurors in
circuit court. At 11:30, the jury filed into the court
with a verdict and sheriff W. H. Warren went to the
county jail to bring the defendant into court to hear it.
There were only a few attorneys and spectators when the
prisoner entered in charge of deputy Nate Smith and the
hands of the big clock pointed to 11:51. Judge Perkins
read the verdict: "We, the jury, find the defendant
guilty of assault with intent to commit rape, as charged
in the second count of the indictment and assess his
punishment at 3 years imprisonment in the
After court adjourned, Kettlewell said:
"I may be stamped by my fellowmen as a criminal, but
I thank God that I go to prison an innocent man." As
he was speaking the big clock in the tower tolled twelve
and he was led out of the courtroom.
Attorney General Chris Koster
visited the Resource, Recovery and Rebuilding
Center in Joplin Wednesday to review the number
and nature of complaints his staff has received
since opening a mobile office following the May
tornado. Koster has had staff on site to assist
people who have questions or concerns about
consumer issues, such as mortgage counseling,
price gouging, identity theft, and contractor or
"Our staff in Joplin have
received nearly 300 consumer complaints from
Joplin storm survivors, and the numbers change
hourly," Koster said. "Its an
incredibly unfortunate reality that there are
people who see this kind of tragedy as an
opportunity to profit from the victims
Koster said currently the top
five complaint categories are:
mortgage fraud, with 54
complaints and 40 resolved; rent increase issues,
51 complaints and 30 resolved; towing, 13
complaints and 5 resolved; charity, 8 complaints
and 2 closed; and home repair, 9 complaints and 5

Ive never had the
pleasure of testifyin in a courtroom
under oath. Id just assume keep it that
way. I dont know of any earth
shatterin evidence I would have in my
possession, but havin to remember
ever little detail of a particular
decision or judgement might put a strain on
my mental capacity.
Not havin any real
legal trainin, I may be
overestimatin the reality, but Id
have to assume that the challenge the Sheriff
has laid down for the County Commission will
get into a few details of not only authority,
but also competency. Not only was this or
that decision or judgement legal, but was it
the best judgement or decision based on the
circumstances at the time.
One thing lawyers like ta
do is ask questions. Lots of em.
Course so do my grandkids. I dont
always have the answer.
This is some fact, but

ART NOTES from
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
Our gallery is empty of art
once more, in preparation for our childrens
artCamp which will begin July 18th and continue
through July 31st. This year we will feature a
second Annual Kids Exhibit on Sunday the
24th, which is the only day in the middle of the
camp schedule when we do not hold classes. Last
year we held the first exhibit in our gallery,
with a cookie and punch reception for the
parents, families and friends and it was a big
success. Teachers were on hand to meet, and I
featured some of our teachers work that day
as well. This year we will continue that
tradition started. I alluded to the fact in last
weeks article that we have received some
memorial money from friends of Richard Logsdon,
and this money is designated as scholarship funds
for kids who desire to take additional classes at
camp but maybe do not have all the funds to do
so. In order to receive help, a child must be
enrolled in at least one paid for class, and then
we work with each case to assist in help with
additional classes. A child must have a letter
from an art or regular teacher on file that
he/she has a desire and interest in art, and that
they are worthy of the help from our patrons who
volunteer assistance. Some of our members are
faithful to award assistance to students as
needed; artists Lora Waring and Cheryl Church
whose work was shown in the last exhibition asked
that the sales of their cards and prints go
towards scholarships for artCamp. Our advisor to
the board, former volunteer director Sandy
Higgins is always interested in assisting worthy
students, and has once more this year volunteered
to do so. It is so heartening to have these offer
their assistance, especially with the children
from Joplin that we may be getting for the first
time, who may have difficulty financially but who
might really benefit from camp this year. I
appreciate the publicity given me in both the
PRESS and the GLOBE to get the word out that our
kids camp is open to all kids aged
8-14 who have an "interest" in art---
maybe not a great talent, but at least an
interest. Not every kid will be a future artist,
but we hope to foster a desire and enable them to
have a time to create in a beautiful setting,
something we can offer here at the Hyde House.
Let us know if you know of a worthy child that
could enjoy this experience!
