A transformer fire at AES Shady Point earlier this afternoon did not result in any injuries or emissions. Members of the fire department were dispatched to the coal fired co-generation plant after a transformer located outside the plant had an internal fire. The fire suppression system for the transformer functioned properly and extinguished the fire very quickly, said an AES spokesperson.

PARIS, Texas â€” It was not a good weekend for the Carl Albert State College basketball teams on Saturday as they both fell to Paris, Texas.
The Dragons jumped out to a 10-0 lead to begin the game, which was a big key in their 60-41 win over the Vikings. In the opener, the Lady Vikings fell 59-40 to the Lady Dragons in the opening game of the doubleheader.
Both CASC teams are in action this week. The Vikings will play another road game at 7 p.m. Wednesday against the University of the Ozarks junior varsity in Clarksville, Ark.
When you look at this week's schedule at the end of this column, you'll see that there's not a lot of high school basketball on the slate. Really, after tonight's pretty busy night of basketball, there won't be such a night until after the Thanksgiving Break.
There's only two games on Thursday (including Bokoshe's season openers), and Friday's lone action, Cameron at Gans, has been canceled because the Grizzlies made it to the Class B state quarterfinals in football. Thus, that match-up won't take place Friday night, but I'm sure it will be rescheduled for a later date.
I would like to applaud the Spiro School District and the citizens of Spiro for taking a step â€” a leap of faith â€” when they built their new gym. Spiro is preparing for bigger and better things down the road, plus they have been guaranteed the LeFlore County Tournament championship game again this season.
They are telling their players and future players that we expect you to win many basketball games in the future, and maybe even win a gold ball. So, we are going to build you a facility that says we are proud of you.
There will be a basketball tournament for grades three through six Friday and Saturday at the Spiro Gym.
The entry fee is $125 per team with a three-game guarantee.
For additional information or to enter, call (479) 651-8353.

The Boys and Girls Club of LeFlore County will have a basketball tournament for boys and girls in grades three through six Dec. 3-4 at the Pansy Kidd Middle School Gym.
TULSA â€” For those who either watched on television or in person (as I did) the Tulsa Golden Hurricane's 59-17 rout of Marshall Satruday at a windy Skelly Field at H.A. Chapman Stadium, this team looks to be not only peaking at the right time, but is definitely set itself up for a Conference USA Western Division title showdown at 11 a.m. Nov. 25 at home with undefeated Houston â€” and possibly the C-USA Championship game (which could be here if Tulsa runs the table).
James and Lucinda Haskin were back in the courtroom Monday afternoon in an attempt to maintain ownership of their livestock, which were removed from their property after they were jailed for child neglect.
