Oklahoma's disastrous spring weather brought out the volunteer spirit across the state.
Wister FFA members showed their spirit by joining cleanup efforts after two major weather events.
On May 20, a devastating EF5 tornado tore through Moore. Houses and families were destroyed.

Hunter safety courses are now available online

September 12, 2013

It’s time to be thinking about getting your child’s hunter safety certification (and yours, too, if you haven’t gotten it yet). Persons who are 10 years or older and an Oklahoma resident can complete a course online and print out their own hunter education card. Once completed, you are fully certified, and you do not have to complete any additional class work.
This option is great for last-minute certification, or adults that want to hunt out of state but cannot attend a full eight-hour class. Check out the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation'’s website to register and get started.

Spiro and Heavener will play in the winner's-bracket final at 5 today for the right to get to the 7:20 p.m. championship game, where that team must be beaten twice — which would mean that the 8:30 p.m. if-game will be necessary.

September 11, 2013

In the life of 8-man football, normally the season opener is about the only tune-up before district play begins. Such was the case for the Bokoshe Tigers and the Arkoma Mustangs.
Both county teams played their lone non-district game before District C-4 begins this week, and against each other no less as the LeFlore County 8-Man Rivaly is renewed.
