Have you ever heard the old saying "It is better to give then to receive"?
This holiday season is your chance to give. The Boy Scout Troop 30, American Veterans 63, The Poteau Post Office, and the Poteau Daily News are sponsoring From Poteau With Love, a campaign to send gifts from home to local soldiers that are currently serving their country overseas during the holiday season.

I went fishing with Jason Wickware Saturday morning at Lake Tenkiller. When we got there, it was cloudy, 47 degrees and the wind was blowing out of the east at 13 mph. When the wind blows out of the east, fish bite least!
I knew it was going to be tough fishing, but Jason caught a three-pound largemouth, and I pulled in a little smallmouth two casts later. But that would prove to be all we'd catch for a while.
The rain came down hard, along with some very strong winds. We caught only three more fish the rest of the day. Any day of fishing is better than working!
