Judge Perkins held court
long enough yesterday afternoon to hear an application
for a receivership in which the Inter-State Oil Co., of
Kansas City were plaintiffs and Walker Bros., of Joplin
and H.P. Scott of Kansas City were the defendants. A.E.
Speveer, of Joplin and H.P.Scott of Kansas City, were the
attorneys for the former and H.S. Miller and Thomas Dolan
of Joplin the attorneys for the latter.
Walker Bros. have a
contract to handle the oil business of the Inter-State
Oil Co. at Joplin. The latter asked that the business of
the former be placed in the hands of a receiver
immediately, during the recess of court, in order that he
might handle the business safely until they could get
into court at next term with a case to secure settlement.
They claimed that Walker Bros. business was in an
unsatisfactory condition and that their own interests so
far as they were connected therewith, were thereby
Walker Bros. claim
was that the application was to get out of their control

would suffer in the hands of any outsider put in to
handle the business as a receiver. The judge denied the
application for a receiver.
Humane Society has hired a new lawyer. Dee
Wampler, of Springfield is to represent the
Society to answer the petitions filed by Missouri
Attorney General Jay Nixon. Wampler replaces Jim
Spradling, of Carthage, who has been representing
the Society free of charge.
The petition filed
by Nixon cites allegations of taking assets for
personal use, gross mismanagement and animal
abuse at the Humane Society. A second petition
was filed by Nixon requesting the removal of the
Humane Societys Executive Director David
Butler, Board President Charles Miller and
Treasurer Bill Johnson.
On June 18,
Circuit Judge Gayle Crane issued preliminary

cause of action. The order states that the
Society must file an answer for the quo warranto
within 30 days of when they are served and, to
protect the assets of the Humane Society until

As a City, there should always be a sense of

With any progress, there are always gonna be some

Oak Street Health & Herbs
By Mari An Willis
The old debate between
traditional and non-traditional treatments has
come up a couple more than the usual times this
week. Since you keep asking, I will remind you of
my personal position regarding this matter.
I am of the personal opinion
that we have the best choices available these
days to utilize the "best of both
worlds." I think if one has a condition
which needs a good diagnosis, go to a place where
you can get one. We have 20th century diagnostic
tools which are remarkable. Isolate the
condition, consult with your physician and
educate yourself to the various treatments
available THEN make an educated choice. Educate
yourself on the alternative treatments which are
available and seek some guidance from those with
experience in those areas. Anyone worth their
title should give you the time you request for
information or at least the courtesy to help you
find a place to get resources of information.
The key here is making choices
which are not fear based, but based on accurate
information. Taking responsibility fro ones
own health is not always easy, but if you are
struggling with your health and are not satisfied
with what you are hearing form one source, ask
another and another and continue to do some
research until you are satisfied. Keep in mind
that some conditions require immediate action and
others do not. We would want to spend some
intensive study time if you are dealing with
cancer as opposed to a digestive disorder which
only bothers you when you overeat.
Prevention and good nutrition
are much easier to practice than cures. Use it on
a daily basis. Changes in patterns of "body
abuse" begin with one small step and
incorporate into a new lifestyle as time goes by.
We are the caretakers of this
body and owe it to ourselves and those whom are
affected by us to take the time to figure out
what makes us tick.
Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
Next week is a holiday week,
and artCentral will be closed, so there is much
to do now to get ready for the exhibition opening
July 13th! Our featured artist is Cathy Martin of
Prarie du Chien, Wisconsin. Cathy has only been
to Carthage once, to attend the wedding of her
son Tony to a local girl, Diana Royer. Later, the
art connection began when her daughter,
University of Wisconsin at LaCrosse art student
Lindsey Martin, applied to serve as summer intern
to artCentral for the next few months. As we were
losing intern Alyson DeBoutez to college
graduation, I quickly agreed, and Lindsey sent an
impressive group of referral letters my way which
included several art professors at her university
who recommended her highly. She has been involved
in not only photography but in scenic and theater
design as well as photorealistic painting.
Lindsey arrived just a day before the opening
night of the last exhibition, the Annual
Membership Show, and spent the entire evening
held hostage in our kitchen where she met a lot
of our folks while doing a huge amount of kitchen
work! Lindsey will be featured in our Member
Gallery at the time of her mothers showing
in the Main Gallery, and her work reflects a love
of photography as well as a talent for turning
her black and white photographs into beautiful
but much larger version black and white
paintings! Her show is entitled, CAMERA OR BRUSH?
Next week I will tell you about our featured
artist, Lindseys mother Cathy, who, along
with her husband, will be present for our opening
artCamp classes continue to
fill, and please dont delay much longer in
getting your childs registration form
turned back in to us. We look forward to a great
school this year!
