A splendid dinner was
served by the Womans Relief Corps at Woodman hall
today; which was well patronized. Some $15 or $20 was
realized to be added to the monument fund, although the
charge was only 15 cents a meal. Justice Twichell was on

Humane Society board met Monday evening in the
Council Chambers of City Hall. Committee
Treasurer Bill Johnson discussed the status of
the board-initiated filing of IRS 990 forms.
Johnson reported that Wes Olson, Joplin CPA had
agreed to complete the filing of three years
worth of 990s for an amount of $150 per
year. For this price, Olson has agreed to file
from 2004 through 2006, giving the Humane Society
proper documentation of non-profit status so that
the board may more readily apply for grants.
Johnson added that the Boylan Foundation had
agreed to pay for the filing provided that the
cost would not exceed $1,000.
Other items of
discussion included the Humane Society checking
account and methods of tracking expenditures and
deposits. The current checking account has no
checks but requires two signatures for
withdrawals. Johnson said that it would be easier
to keep track of the expenditures if checks were
issued. Humane Society Director David Butler
added that he would like to see bank statements
sent to two addresses; one to the Humane Society
and one to Johnson for bookkeeping purposes.
The board also
discussed recent damage to the roof of the Humane
Society thrift store and a course of action for
repairs. Council liaison Bill Welch proposed the
idea of repairing the roof and utilizing the
structure as additional cat housing for the
society. The item was discussed but it was
determined that further study would be required
into the costs of preparing the building for
animal housing. Insurance money has been received
for the repairs and bids have been sought for
repair but all bids to this point have been
higher than anticipated. The item will be
discussed at the next board meeting.
The board agreed
to meet on the third Thursday of each month at
6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers of City Hall. Those
wishing to join the board can submit their name,
address and phone number to the Carthage Humane
Society office, 13860 Dog Kennel Lane by March 1,

I always made sure to wear my shoes when I was
visitin my cousin in the
"city" as a kid.
Bein used ta runnin on
gravel roads and no sidewalks in the rural
community I grew up in, I think my mom thought I
was puttin on airs some. Not so. The city
had somethin we werent used ta
dealin with. Slugs. My feet were used ta
goathead stickers and rocks, not the slimy, mushy
feel of a slug tween the toes. No sir, I
wasnt goin barefoot with creatures
like that layin in wait.
As a kid I figured that was why
folks in the city always wore shoes too.
The other farm kids thought the
city folk were a bunch of sissies. I wasnt
sure about that, but I figured that under the
right circumstances, shoes werent such a
