Turkeys, fishing and baseball — it means spring is here

April 5, 2012

Turkey season is just around the corner, and I plan on going out to locate some turkeys this weekend for my boys to chase around during the southeast region’s youth season coming up April 21-22.

Election workers disheartened

April 4, 2012

Low voter turn out for Tuesday's Special Election in Poteau for Proposition 4 resulted in a number of poll workers being forced to work at poll locations all day without a single voter coming in to cast their ballot. Poteau polling places at precincts 212, 109, 211 and 103 all reported no ballots cast during the election. Three poll workers were still paid at each location for what amounts to at least a 14 hour day as polls open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. and workers are usually busy for about an hour before and an hour after.
