The Jasper County Commission
last week approved an ordinance regulating adult
cabarets. A company had previously applied for a
permit to open a truckers lounge and juice
bar in the county southeast of Carthage. A number
of citizens and those living near the proposed
location for the juice bar came forward to oppose
the opening of such a business.
Jasper County Presiding
Commissioner John Bartosh said in a recent
interview with the Mornin Mail that
the County cant ban anybody from putting in
such an establishment, however, Bartosh added
that due to the citizen complaints the Commission
agreed to impose more strict rules and
regulations for anyone wanting to open an adult
"Nobody wants that in
their back yard," said Bartosh. "We
dont have the population to support
The ordinance has twenty
sections in total, each one representing a
different restriction or requirement for adult
cabarets and adult cabaret employees.
One requirement is that all
employees of an adult cabaret must have a
background check and be entered into the
Sheriffs Office Iris Scan system. Employees
will also need to obtain an "Adult
Cabaret" card from the Sheriffs
department, prior to which they must show proof
from the Jasper County Health Department that
they are HIV negative. The cost for the card is
$100. It must be renewed every year at that cost,
which covers the processing of the background
check, photography and application processing.
The ordinance also requires
that no one under twenty-one years of age may
enter the adult cabaret and that three security
guards with the same training as Jasper County
Sheriffs Deputies must be present at all
hours of operation.
The ordinance also includes
location restrictions, citing that the cabaret
must be two thousand feet from any business with
an alcohol license and two thousand feet from any
church, school, park or residence.
I was pretty excited bout
my first bicycle. Lookin back, it
wasnt much. It had hard rubber tires, no
coaster brake or brakes at all. It was direct
drive and no real pedals, just pins stickin
out where pedals used ta be.
It wasnt new by any means
when I took possession. In fact, it had handle
bars taken from a much larger bike and a seat
welded on it to make it fit.
The learnin process
consumed nearly a full day, from sun up to sun
down. In the commercials, they always have smooth
sidewalks, no hills and plenty of shrubbery to
My neighborhood had giant
cracks in the sidewalk, seems I was always
goin up hill and the only thing green was
the grass growin up in the gravel roads. It
was an eventful day for me.
I went directly to bed without
mendin scrapes and bruises or even
eatin supper that night. Slept mighty good
as I recall.
This is some fact, but mostly,

HERE'S A TIP
By JoAnn Derson
"Use the liner of cold
cereal boxes as wax paper. Its much
stronger than regular wax paper, and it
doesnt fall apart when it gets wet."
-- S.S. in Minnesota
Whats In Season? Get more
bang for your produce buck in the coming month by
looking for good deals on: Brussels sprouts,
grapefruit and other citrus, pears, kale, sweet
potatoes, winter squash, bok choy, apples and
radicchio. Branch out with persimmons, leeks, red
currants, cherimoya, pummelo and dates.
Suffering from skin irritation
or painful chapped hands? "Put a moderate
coat of pure petroleum jelly over affected areas
right before you go to bed each night, and sleep
with your hands covered with loose-fitting, clean
cotton socks or mittens only, no gloves or other
materials." -- D.M. in Ohio
"I always keep a
toilet tote in my car and also take
one with me when I travel. Inside the tote bag I
put disposable latex gloves, a can of Lysol, a
container of pull-out disinfecting hand wipes and
a roll each of toilet paper and paper towels.
This tote has helped me deal with all kinds of
bathroom situations in gas stations, restaurants
and hotel/motels." -- D.R. in New Jersey
"I try to watch my
calories closely to stay in shape. Its much
easier to control at home, but I do like to dine
out every once in a while. Heres one tactic
that saves me lots of extra calories: When eating
out at a restaurant, I always let the server know
ahead of time exactly how much bread, if any, I
would like. It saves me from eating a basketful
when I might want only a single piece, or none at
all." -- J.L. in Florida
