A Chronological Record of Events as they have Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.


An Example of How They Spread on Slight Foundation.

Rumor had it widely circulated about the streets late yesterday afternoon that two Carthage boys in camp at Chickamauga, one in Co. A and one in Co. G, had died during the day. The name of the Co. G man was reported to be Chas. Hathcock.

Young Hathcock and his father joined Capt. Whitsett’s company and his brother went with the Light Guard boys.

A reporter called at the Hathcock home on Bois d’Arc street this morning and Mrs. Hathcock said she had received no telegram announcing either death or accident to her boys. "But," she concluded, "that report probably started form the fact that I received a letter on Tuesday from Mr. Hathcock saying that Charley was looking real bad and was not at all well."

  Today's Feature

Rare Auto Show.

Over 50 vintage cars and music will fill the Samual J. Butcher Convention Center at the Precious Moments Inspiration Park over the Farther’s Day weekend.

Showcasing the Memory Makers Auto Experience event will be a 1934 Duesenberg Convertible Sedan originally owned by the Wrigley Chewing Gum family. Technological advancements introduced in the car include a dual overhead cam straight-8 engine with four valves per cylinder. Each Duesenberg Model J was unique, created for the original owner’s taste. The body for this Model J was hand-crafted by Murphy Coachworks.

A vintage Rolls Royce limousine once owned by Queen Elizabeth is another vehicle on display at the show. Guests will also see cars from the early history of automobiles such as a 1911 Sears Convertible and a 1919 Essex Speedster. Classics from the golden age of the touring car featured include a 1931 Cadillac, a 1934 Lincoln, and a 1940 Packard Sedan.

Admission for the show is $9; $8.50 for seniors, and $4 for children.

5th Annual Workshop Weekend Held at artCentral.

By Lee Sours, artCentral

The fifth annual workshop weekend has come to an end at artCentral. The tents have come down and the participants are taking their projects home.

Everyone was able to take a completed or nearly completed work to take back with them. Jack Sours was a student in the stonecarving workshop. When referring to instructor Bill Snow he said, "His teaching shows an extensive base of experience." Mr. Snow has been a sculptor for many years and many of his works can be seen locally including one that is the largest in the nation, weighing in at 24 tons. All the students learned what it is like to work long days, go home exhausted and love it.

Chris Swinson, a student in the blacksmithing class, had this to say about her class. "Joe is a wonderful teacher. He taught us what it would be like to live hundreds of years ago – making your own tools and items necessary for survival."

Now that the workshops for adults are over, we will be working on getting ready for artCamp for kids ages 8 – 14. This year we will be offering classes on the following: mosaic tiles, batik, painting a mural, candle making, tie dying, aboriginal art, Egyptian art, photography & constructed environments, and photography, self portraits & Picasso. Call artCentral to receive a registration form.

Our exhibits this month are the Membership Show in the Main Gallery, Marilyn York’s watercolors of the southwest in the Members’ Gallery, and paintings by Verneil Roper and Dan McWilliams at Shellie’s (across from the post office.)

If ya wanna give a real Father’s Day gift, along with that tie or card or power tool, give Dad a day off.

Mow the lawn, (if in fact he typically does that), or better yet, clean out the rain gutters (if he ever does that).

Offer to give him control of the remote for the day. (It prob’ly won’t make that much different, but it will make him feel good that ya offered.) Or better yet, offer to just sit with him and randomly switch channels for an hour or two. Save him the strain on his pointin’ finger.

Fact is, it doesn’t take much ta make Dad’s know ya appreciate ‘em.

‘Course ya could make a construction paper crown and make him wear it. Odds are he’ll give ya twenty bucks and tell ya ta go get a pizza just ta get ya outa the house.

This is some fact, but mostly,

Just Jake Talkin’.

Natural Nutrition

By Mari An Willis

This has been a very busy season. Many people are complaining of general lack of energy. Stress, heat, improper nutrition and vacations all take their toll. We are in a hurry and rush society with me at the head of the pack!

Spirulina - a natural food supplement that is easily digestible providing an excellent cross of nutrients and protein. It is commonly found in weight control formulas for its ability to satisfy hunger. Creates internal energy.

Bee Pollen - strengthens and builds the system. It has been used to make one "buzz" through the day. It is rich in amino acids and enzymes - natural energizers. If one has allergies to bee sting, this is not for you. Start in small doses and work up.

Damiana - has been used to treat those in an exhausted state. Although it has been used to help balance hormones and is often associated with increasing sexual prowess, it is in many energy formulas.

Ginko - is an adaptogenic herb helping the body to deal with stress thus burning less "stress" energy. It is a gift for the aging as it increases blood flow to the brain and extremities, improves mental clarity and helps with other blood conditions. Much study has been done on Ginko proving its benefits.

Ginseng - an old standby used by many to overcome stress and weakness. Ginseng is a tonic herb and is best used on a daily basis as it is used in the Orient. In China it is used as a preventative.
