Two decisions facing the Poteau Chamber Board of Directors remained in limbo after their regular monthly meeting Tuesday.
A recent offer by the City of Poteau to enter into contract with the chamber, which would take over management of the Donald W. Reynolds Community Center, was somewhat resolved but still on hold after action by the board. Questions about the legalities of the agreement â€” such as any impact the partnership might make upon the chamber's 501(C)6 tax status â€” needed to be answered after the previous meeting.
STILLWATER â€” Saturday afternoon's game at Boone Pickens Stadium had the phrase â€śtrap gameâ€ť written all over it. The weekend before, the Oklahoma State Cowboys won a big road Big 12 game against Texas Tech. This upcoming weekend is a road game at Texas, followed by a home game Nov. 23 against league-leading Baylor.
So, it might have been understandable that in Saturday's 42-6 victory, the Pokes (8-1 overall, 5-1 in Big 12 play) may have looked a bit lethargic in beating the Kansas Jayhawks (2-7, 0-6).
