Eventually I smoked Havanas. A
cigar makers organization once said that I
was the most famous cigar smoker in the world. I
dont know if thats true, but once
while visiting Havana, I went to a cigar factory.
There were four hundred people there rolling
cigars, and when they saw me, they all stood up
and applauded - Groucho Marx

Town" is the clever title of the latest farce which
will be given in its first presentation in this City
The lines in
"Browns in Town" are said to be bright
and witty, and upon investigation one finds there are a
great many reasons for Brown remaining in Town. One of
the principal reasons is the fact that he wishes to keep
his marriage a secret from his father, who does not want
him to take a wife, until he reaches the age of
twenty-five. Brown is an assumed name and is a good
fellow - not the farce comedy good fellow - but a manly
man. The tone of "Browns in Town" is said
to be above the average farce, but it is none the less
amusing and it is all the more agreeable for that.

Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Odor
Workgroup is scheduled to meet with DNR on
Thursday, July 26, in Jefferson City to discuss
its final report on a series of meetings held to
discuss odor emission policies.
This workgroup was
established by DNR to examine the Air Pollution
Control Program of the Missouri Air Conservation
Commission and determine whether changes are
needed. Six separate sessions were held, the last
of which was held on June 26. Carthage Mayor Jim
Woestman was in attendance at several of the
meetings to speak on behalf of Carthage regarding
According to the
final report, the panel reached a consensus on
three areas: to pursue partnerships that could
bring new assessment tools to help identify
odors; to increase monitoring on a case-by-case
basis, which would include the creation of
satellite offices in areas of frequent
complaints, and increasing the monitoring for
repeat offenders; and to investigate changes to
the St. Louis area methods of odor detection.
regarding new assessment tools may include
proposals like the one made by Renewable
Environmental Resources; to have an independent
company conduct tests to determine where certain
odors originate. The specific proposal, however,
is not listed in the report.
The commission did
not reach a decision on the proposal to reduce
the dilution ratios for odor detection. The
report makes note of the request along with
several advantages and disadvantages to changing
the procedure. The listed advantages include an
increased responsiveness to citizens and quality
of life. Listed disadvantages include that the
reduction would require more research and
potentially require more staff to investigate
The findings of
the panel will be presented to DNR for
consideration on Thursday. Mayor Woestman has
indicated that he plans to attend the meeting.
Ive listened to one stock expert a couple a
times that has a pretty simple strategy for most
He says to
invest in companies that provide products or
services that you purchase on a regular basis.
That probly goes against
what most brokers will tell ya. Most like to
evaluate everthing from earnin ratios
to management style and try to come up with some
sorta formula that predicts what any particular
stock will do.
The buy what you like program,
on the other hand, puts more weight on the actual
products. It puts more faith in the finished
product than the formula. What really
probly upsets the stock experts is the fact
that such a system takes all the market wizards
and analysts out of the picture.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Here's A Tip
By JoAnn Derson
"When assembling a
sizable piece of furniture, try to do it in the
room where it will be used, if possible. This
prevents you from having to disassemble all or
part of it if you cant fit it through the
doorway, and saves you the frustration of having
to move and maneuver it into its room." --

Heres a tip for
tick removal in areas that are hard to get to
with tweezers: Soak a cotton ball in liquid soap
and apply to the tick, covering all areas. After
15 to 20 seconds, the tick should come out on its
own and should be stuck to the cotton ball for
removal. Remember never to squeeze the tick while
it is attached to the skin, as that could force
more bacteria into the skin. Dispose of ticks
properly. This works on pets, too!
M.B. in Texas writes:
"I have a fairly small bathroom, and storage
was a problem. I bought a large over-the-door
shoe hanger/shoe bag. Mine has 24 pouches. I put
it on the back of the door and put all my
shampoo, body wash, combs, brushes, hairspray,
hair clips, etc., in the pouches. When the door
is closed, all your essentials are at your
fingertips, and from the outside, it doesnt
look like it holds a mountain of articles you use
every day. I love it!"
"If you love
hard-boiled eggs as much as I do, heres a
trick you will really like for removing shells
easily. First, the shells on older eggs come off
better than new; second, rinse eggs in cold water
after boiling, and let them set in cold water for
about 10 minutes, changing the water several
times to keep it cool. The shells will just slip
off." -- I.V. in North Carolina
To clean Venetian
blinds, slip an old sock onto each hand, spray
with dust cleaner and sandwich each blade in your
hands, sliding from the top to the bottom.
