Hot weather and good fishing — both are plentiful

August 4, 2011

I stopped in and visited with Jim Miller of Poteau on Tuesday afternoon to talk about Lake Texoma, and learn a little about jug fishing.
Jim came to eastern Oklahoma back in 1961 while working in the oil field and, like many others, he liked this part of the country and decided that this was the place for him to live. Over the years, he has farmed and raised chickens along with working in the oil field, but he has always loved catfishing. He said that Lake Texoma is the best place to catch them.

Local referee honored for his 40 years of service; Rowley plans on officiating for many more years to come

August 3, 2011

The old adage says, “Time flies when you're having fun.” For Poteau football referee Max Rowley, nothing could be more true.
Last weekend at the Oklahoma Officials Conference in Oklahoma City, Rowley was given a certificate for his 40 years of being on the field every Friday night.
“I guess the first thing I thought of was that it's hard to believe that I've been calling games for that period of time,” Rowley said. “It's just gone by so rapidly.”

Angels' top prospect with Poteau ties enjoys brief stay with Major Leagues

August 3, 2011

It did not last long, but Mike Trout enjoyed his stay.
Trout, one of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim's top prospects was just sent back down to the team's AA affiliate Arkansas on Monday after he spent about a month with the big-league club.
"Back to Little Rock!,” said Trout, age 19, on Twitter. “(I) had awesome experience up here in Anaheim. Thanks for everything!"
Trout arrived with the Angels on July 8 after starting center fielder Peter Bourjos was injured. Trout started 12 games for the Angels, and hit .163 with a home run and six runs batted in.
