NOTICE AND AGENDA OF REGULAR MEETING
OCTOBER 28, 2011
THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS, LEFLORE COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, HAS SCHEDULED
A REGULAR BUSINESS MEETING FOR OCTOBER 31, 2011 AT 9:00 A.M. IN THE OFFICE OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS.
Last week, the Poteau Pirates essentially won a playoff-like contest. They celebrated Senior Night last week with a 31-23 win over one of their nemeses, the Broken Bow Savages. The win kept the Pirates (4-4, 2-3 in District 4A-4) alive in the playoff hunt.
Last week saw one LeFlore County rivalry on the football field with Panama visiting Pocola. Tonight, another one will take place.
The Bokoshe Tigers will visit the Arkoma Mustangs for a 7:30 p.m. District C-4 contest tonight.
The Mustangs (7-1, 4-1 in district play) lost for the first time last week, dropping a 84-38 decision to Webbers Falls.
Earlier this year, not too many football prognosticators were not thinking that the Heavener Wolves and the Panama Razorbacks would be in line for the Class 2A playoffs â€” but they are.
Both teams will meet at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Panama's George Ollie Stadium for their playoff lives in a crucial District 2A-6 contest.
Last year, the Spiro Bulldogs made it all the way to the Class 3A state quarterfinals in the 2010 playoffs. If they hope to see the 2011 playoffs, they must win out â€” beginning tonight.
The â€™Dogs (3-5, 2-3 in District 3A-8) will play their home regular-season finale at 7:30 p.m. tonight at McClain Stadium against the Atoka Wampus Cats (4-4, 1-4).
â€śWe have to win out to have a chance to get in,â€ť Spiro Coach Chris Bunch said. â€śEven if we win out, we still may not get in. But we definitely have to win out to have a chance.â€ť
After losing their third straight District 2A-6 game last week to Wilburton, the Talihina Golden Tigers have their backs against the den now.
The Golden Tigers (5-3, 1-3 in district play) pretty much need to win out to guarantee a return to the Class 2A playoffs, beginning at 7:30 p.m. tonight in their home finale against the Hartshorne Miners (6-2, 3-1) at Doc Robinson Stadium.
POCOLA â€” Last week, the Heavener Wolves, for the second straight season, got a forfeited win over the Tahlequah Tigers junior varsity, which canceled out on them for their Week 8 game.
This week, the Pocola Indians found out what that's like.
Thursday evening of last week, my he-man crew â€” Johnny T. Burgess, Dustin â€śStone Coldâ€ť Reece, Eddie â€śMoneyâ€ť Sockey and yours truly â€” was at my shop building the â€śegg-a-nator.â€ť It was a 7x7 feet chicken coop. It was most glorious when we finally got it built.
Last Friday, Steven Culwell from OK Foods donated 1,200 double-yolk eggs. Eddie and I loaded up the â€śegg-a-natorâ€ť and off to Balloonfest we went, along with Allan Hensley.
While there was a bunch of happy Poteau Pirate football players last Thursday night at Costner Stadium, there may have been none happier than senior wide receiver Blake Roley.
Roley and the Pirates beat the Broken Bow Savages 31-23 to snap a five-game losing streak against their McCurtain County nemesis.
Frank Dee Gist, 78, of Spiro died Monday, Oct. 24,
2011. Services will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 28, at
Mallory-Martin Chapel in Spiro. Burial will be in
Cowlington Cemetery under the direction of Mallory-
Martin Funeral Home.
