While travelin to
see relatives, I have the habit of stoppin
at one particular convenience store that is
located about half way. It allows for
stretchin of the legs and the use of the
rest room facility. I say facility cause it
has one a those unisex bathrooms. This in itself
isnt a big problm with me, although I think
it has little to do with the equality of the
sexes, and much to do with the savin the
expense of two separate facilities. The problem
is that because of its convenient location, many
travelers stop for the same reasons that I do. As
the inevitable line forms, its nearly
always composed of members of both sexes with a
common pending crisis that has been developing
over the last thirty miles or so.
Perhaps the fight for equality
will not be fought in the high courts through the
process of litigation, but in the convenience
stores through the process of elimination.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Q: How do bioflavonoids help
strengthen blood vessels?
A: Collagen is the primary
protein component of the connective tissue which
gives strength to the blood vessels. Collagen in
the blood vessels can be degraded by free
radicals and enzymes which are released during
inflammatory conditions. Bioflavonoids have been
studied for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory
properties. Bioflavonoids are thought to support
the stabilization of collagen due to their
capacity to form hydrogen bonds among different
protein chain. It seems bioflavonoids bind
tightly to collagen and modify its structure to
help make it more resistant to
Q: I am currently being treated
for intestinal parasites. Can family members be
infected and should they be treated?
A: Intestinal parasites can be
passed from one to another...family or not.
Treatment for parasites is recommended on an
Q: Can the absence of nutrients
A: Deficiencies of vitamins C
& E may be associated with cholesterol
gallstones. Essential fatty acid supplementation
has helped in some cases. Lecithin can also help
by increasing the capacity of bile to dissolve
cholesterol. Individuals with gallstones have an
abnormally low phospholipid-cholesterol ratio in
the bile. Taurine supplementation may be of some
benefit. *used with permission
Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
The shows at our Atrium Gallery
inside the Sirloin Stockade will change again
soon. Since the end of February we have been
pleased to feature the prints and one watercolor
original of John Fitzgibbon of Webb City who was
the featured artist for us in the month of
February. I will soon be changing that show to
feature a group of the pastel paintings of
Sarcoxie artist Mary Lou Reed and that group of
originals will remain hanging through the early
spring. Both of these artists were very well
received here at the gallery and promise to be
equally successful at the satellite gallery. Stop
by and see them, Johns to remain up another
2 weeks and Mary Lous to go up in mid
The ceramic pieces and pottery
will begin arriving at Hyde House tomorrow and
will all be in house by the weekend. Then begins
the process of my going over the 3-5 pieces per
artist and choosing 2 each to remain in the Main
Gallery Show which will actually be hung and
placed in both galleries this time equally. There
are 18 artists totaled and I will tell you a
little bit about a few each for my next three
articles leading up to the shows opening.
Curtis Adkins is from Miami
Oklahoma and is a member of the Midwest Clay
Artists, the group that is exhibiting their
pottery for this show. His pieces range from hand
built utilitarian pieces such as mugs and plates
to unusual wall hung masks and slab built and
pinch built wall hangings and wall pockets. These
pieces are quite sculptural.
Gregory Krepps is a well
established St. Louis ceramic artist, who moved
his studio-gallery to Pittsburg, Kansas four
years ago. He has been a full time artist for
nearly 30 years, has won many awards, and given
many demonstrations and lectures throughout his
career. Using the oldest form of making ceramic
vessels, dating back at least 6,000 years, his
sculptural pieces are one of a kind: pinched
pots, stone-burnished, and pit-fired.
The "clay bug" hit
Daria Claiborne almost six years ago. She started
working with clay under the direction of Helen
Ryan, resident potter of Carthage on the square
inside The Emporium, and furthered her studies
with Dewane Hughes, Jed Schlegel and Frank
Pishkur at MSSU. "I love being a potter.
Potters are the most supportive, innovative and
creative people around. I appreciate all the
encouragement given to me and it has gotten me
through some tough times."
Daria is a member of artCentral
and SPIVA and has participated in numerous
membership shows, earning a Best of Show at
artCentral in 2004 and Honorable Mention at SPIVA
When he is not making smiles
brighter, Rich Reed has for 10 years been
creating pottery. He especially enjoys the
"raku" method of finishing his work,
which is the ancient Japanese method of glazing
that incorporates burning leaves, saw dust, paper
and other combustibles along with specialized
raku glazes in an outdoor kiln. Raku literally
means "happy surprise" as no two pots
ever turn out the same. His pottery has been
featured in area shows and the demand has kept
