A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Fred Scheerer, a farmer
living near Dresden, recently shot a red rabbit, such as
is found in southern Europe, but never before in this
country. But then, Missouri has everything if one will
truly diligently search for it.
At Nevada, they have a
flourishing lodge of Good Templars and nine saloons which
must flourish also or they could not pay the $1,000
license they are obliged to put up for license.
The mayor of Nevada gave
his salary of $500 to the poor this year.
A Theft Last Night.
The hind wheels from an
almost new road cart owned by Frank and Will Porter were
stolen from a barn opposite the jail last night. Also a
set of single harness and lines and attachments of other
harnesses. Twenty dollars is offered for the reward.
Energy (MGE), a division of Southern Union
Company (NYSE: SUG), today received approval from
the Missouri Public Service Commission (MPSC) to
implement a new rate structure and an overall
increase in revenues of approximately $27.2
million, or $4.5%. This results in an increase
for residential customers of approximately $3.60
The new rate
structure approved by the commission produces an
improved rate design that should stabilize
MGEs revenues and reduce the impact of
weather-related fluctuations on bills for the
Companys approximately 510,000 customers.
The cost to deliver gas to a customer will
consolidate the previous consumption based energy
charge and the residential customer charge into
one single, fixed monthly amount. This means that
the portion of the residential bill that goes to
Missouri Gas Energy will not change no matter how
much gas is used. MGE will be initiating and
funding conservation programs within its service
areas to assist customers in reducing their
overall energy bills.
In addition, the
revenue increase will help the Company recover
increased expenses associated with operating,
maintaining and enhancing its 8,000 mile
distribution system, as well as the cost of
substantial capital expenditures MGE has made for
safety projects, public improvement relocations
and new construction. The revenue increase is not
related to "cost of gas" charges, which
make up more than 70% of the overall customer
bill, fluctuates up and down based on the market
price of gas and individual customer usage and
from which MGE receives no financial benefit.
The new rates will
go into effect March 30, 2007.
"Its only logical," Spock would
tell Captain Kirk. The total lack of human
emotions allowed Spock the luxury of making
decisions in a consistent "just the
suppose most of us wish at times we could be a
little more like Spock in that respect, yet
probly one of the most basic human
characteristics is the fact that we can get a
little stirred up ever now and then.
Its only natural for
folks to be emotional bout things that are
important to them. And community concerns are
bound to stir folks up a little. Typically the
ones involved are those that have shown the
ability to get the ball rollin.
It looks ta me like a community
should be able to express differences and still
keep the ball of progress rollin.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Oak Street Health & Herbs
By Mari An Willis
Our bodies have a given ability
to neutralize many harmful chemicals if the
proper nutrients are present in our bodies to do
so. In some recent reading I came across an
article about chemical sensitivities which shed
some light on the option of prevention. The
nutrients mentioned were: molybdenum, glutathione
and Coenzyme B.
Molybdenum is required
to activate the enzymes which can neutralize
sulfites and aldehydes. It appears that this
trace mineral is among the many which are often
lacking in todays diet.
Glutathione (GSH) is
perhaps the most important shielding and
cleansing molecule in the human body according to
research done by the Mayo Clinic. It helps the
liver in its cleansing functions and serves as
part of a critical antioxidant enzyme.
Coenzyme B2 is said to
support both the functions of molybdenum and GSH
helping to "recycle" it until it has
been completely utilized.
Since I cant personally
(or even collectively) stop the bombardment of
airborne pollutants or chemicals released into
our soil and water, it is nice to have found the

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
We are entering into a bit of
down time at the Hyde House. The wonderful show
of Mary Lou Reeds beautiful pastels has
moved out, three sold, six paintings to an
exhibition at a gallery in Kansas City and the
rest to soon hang at our satellite gallery, The
Atrium, inside the Sirloin Stockade on Central.
Mary Lou was very pleased to have some of her
paintings accepted to go to Kansas City, and we
are so thrilled for her! We also will soon lose
the great oil paintings of Frank Young as well,
but look forward to hanging a larger Main Gallery
show for him next year.
So the galleries are closed for
a time as we begin to get ready for the very
large and exciting ceramics and pottery exhibit
that will be coming into both galleries in April!
This huge showing will include multiple works
from some 18 ceramics artists from the area,
representing several towns. The group is known as
the "Midwest Pottery Artists" and in
addition to the art show inside the house in the
two galleries they will be hosting an outside
pottery fair on the grounds of artCentrals
Hyde House on Friday evening and all day the
following Saturday. This fair will feature booths
and tents of each artists work and promises
to be a fun event both from our viewpoint, as
interest to the community, and from theirs, as a
successful sales event! Watch for more
information on the various artists as well as for
descriptions of the work that they will be
bringing for this new show. Our very sincere
thanks go out to Beimdiek Insurance Co. for
acting as underwriter for this big show.
Beimdieks have been long time supporters of
artCentral and art events here at the Hyde House
and have supported various fundraisers and events
in the past as well as being long time members of
artCentral. They have lent to us Joann Evans as a
past member of the Board of Directors and we
enjoyed Joanns service on the board for
several years. Without community support such as
theirs, events like this upcoming one could
not take place, and so in behalf of the board I
thank Steve Beimdiek for his very generous
Next week I will go into some
detail about what we expect to see coming from
our ceramics artists. Meantime, things will be a
bit quiet as we see our grounds begin to green,
and prepare them for this great outside fair in
