  • It seems nearly impossible to fathom that someone as brilliant and funny as Robin Williams could be so tortured emotionally that he takes himself out of the human race. Yet, last week, one by one, each of us across the whole globe, fixed our attention on the sad news of this beloved actor’s suicide. Sometimes, a blip of news in the vast sea of information we are bombarded with daily, seems to slap us so hard in the face that we can almost hear the collective groan rippling through space and time. Then we all try our best to reckon with reality. And what a devastating reality Robin Williams’ death reveals - that someone who, by his very nature, brought

  • POPLAR BLUFF - Tucked away in the woods south of Poplar Bluff is a scene that would humble even the most elaborately decorated greeting card. The scene on the half-mile stretch of gravel road leading to the Pennington’s 60-acre mum farm is one of browning, overgrown fields and what appears to be a junk yard; it does not prepare you for the panorama of color laying just ahead. There is color everywhere from blaze orange pumpkins of all kinds, including warty, decorative, pie and various others.  Among the mums, you will also find gourds of many varieties and, the Pennington’s will share how to dry it for use as a birdhouse. Brilliant colored mums are everywhere: there are purple, purple

  • There is nothing that fits the description of “Americana” more than an old fashioned “five and dime” store. There was a time when almost every small town had a “Ben Franklin” store, a five and dime named after the famous American forefather who declared “a penny saved is a penny earned.” Not many Ben Franklin stores have survived in our country, but one does in Dexter. “This store, originally Weber’s Variety Store, was founded in 1909,” explained Donna West, now the store’s manager. Then in the 1930’s, she said, it became “Weber’s Ben Franklin.” West said the stores are franchised, but now less than a hundred “Ben Franklins” still survive nationwide. The store is still a “five and dime,” but

  • Erin Brown has a passion for art. That’s why she opened Metro Gallery at 1 East Stoddard in Dexter. “I come from a family that has always loved art,” she explained. She also loves Dexter. That’s why she opened Metro Gallery and Powder Room & Boutique in Dexter. And, she believes in bringing the world to Dexter through her goods. “We have jewelry and art here from all over the world,” said Brown. “Our jewelry artists come from Turkey, Africa, and from all over the U.S. It is all handcrafted.” The Metro also carries hand-crafted candles, pottery and, even, goat’s milk soap. “We go on road trips to find these treasures,” she said, in addition to their annual buyers’ markets

  • Photo  - Charlie and Charlie (not sure which one is which) Charles West has been in downtown Dexter for a long time. He now operates “Mr. Charlie’s” at 22 East Stoddard Street. “I’ve operated a store downtown for 40 years,” explained West. For many years, he had stores in both Dexter and Malden. At one time he had both a furniture and shoe store. “Then I retired, or at least thought I’d retire,” said West. But, once again, he was drawn back to downtown Dexter. He said it’s a hard habit to break. “Downtown Dexter has gone through a lot of stages over the years,” said West. It’s had boom times and then times when things weren’t looking so great.

  • When a pageant, prom or formal approaches it's time for a visit to The Bunny Patch. Owner Peggy Barks' shop enjoys mainstay status in downtown Dexter, and has serviced generations of patrons for 27 years. On Monday, SEMO TIMES found Peggy at the back of her temporary location, sitting at a sewing machine designing custom fittings as she has for a couple of generations of clients. Her large, 8,000 + square-foot shop is in the midst of renovations, she explained. After so long in the same location, Barks decided her store could use a face lift. "I don't have even half my inventory here," she said. "It will be very, very nice when we get back there." The Bunny Patch
