Poteau Pirates football team impressive in spring game

May 24, 2013

For Poteau Pirates football fans, there’s some good news and some not-so-good news.
The not-so-good news is that the strength of last year’s team, the offensive line, only returns one starter, Stephen Smith. Gone is 1,500 pounds of people movers and lane creaters.
However, the good news is Roger Barcheers, who was the 2012 All-Arklahoma Football Team’s Freshmen of the Year, had more than 1,500 yards rushing in his freshman year, and will be back for his sophomore season in the fall, as will quarterback Jace Pitchford and wide receiver Jarrett Lowrimore to name just a few.

Local motorcycle racer wins national racing title last year

May 24, 2013

Earlier this month, the Poteau Pirates soccer team brought home a state championship. However, before 2013 a local motorcycle racer brought home a national title.
Bart Winters, who works at Cargill's Yamaha in Poteau, won the Vintage National Championship Series.
“I raced in about 10 races last year,” said Winters. “I worked pretty hard for it, so it felt pretty good.”
However, it wasn't the only title Winters brought home. He also won a grand prix race at Hallett, located about 30 miles west ot Tulsa.

The glory of spring

May 24, 2013

God gives us four seasons, all of which are special in their own way.
We have summer when outdoorsmen can pick blackberries, noodle for catfish or just catch fish the normal way by actually fishing for them — although I love grabbing those big flatheads with my hands.
We then have fall, which I look forward to each year with great anticipation. The squirrel and duck hunting, along with chasing after whitetail deer consumes me.
Winter has more duck hunting and chasing predators, but then comes spring.
