Sophomore running back had a hold on Poteau's win over Clinton; send off, caravan slated for Saturday

November 29, 2013

What Poteau sophomore runinng back Roger Barcheers has done his first two years has been rather awesome, especially since he was the Freshman of the Year on the 2012 All-Arklahoma Football Team.
However, Barcheers was in the spotlight, somewhat that is, for his ability to hold the ball for Poteau senior place-kicker Jace Pitchford. Thanks to the right hold, Pitchford kicked the game-winning field goal with four seconds left to lift the Pirates to a 10-7 Class 4A state quarterfinal victory over defending state champion Clinton at Costner Stadium.

Gun season is in full swing; several local hunters had successful outings

November 27, 2013

The online deer check station has been a hotspot this year. The numbers are looking good — a lot of venison on the table all across the state.
Here’s what has been checked as of Wednesday morning: 56,471 deer, 176 turkey and 42 elk. This year, my family has actually contributed to that number early. My wife, Paula, kept telling me that I sure went out a bunch and never brought home a deer. This year I’ve gotten one, and so has Cash and Koby.
