Dove season is the 'kickoff' for fall hunting for this year

August 8, 2013

Dove season is just around the corner, so I decided to give everyone a little background information on these birds that we love to hunt in the early fall. I know that Wister’s Jesse Hammons and his dad, Bud, will be out after those beautiful birds come Sept. 1. They always take Jesse’s little brothers, Will and Joe, along, and make it a whole family affair. They will be making memories that last a lifetime.

A step back in time

August 7, 2013

1936 Glendale High School Basketball Champs
This newspaper photo was submitted by Jess Ryburn of Poteau, who said Hamilton had coached his father.
Hamilton later was Heavener school superintendent and was elected to the Oklahoma Senate in 1950, where he served until his death in 1967. His son, James E. Hamilton, followed in his footsteps, serving in both the state Senate and House of Representatives. Farmer Wann became superintendent of Pocola Public Schools.

A new year is coming

August 7, 2013

The new school year is upon us, and the year looks good for LeFlore County.
First of all, let me tell you about the best high school band in this part of the state. After having another stellar year with its “Tribute to the Fallen,” the Poteau High School band, under the direction of Harley Thomas, Becky Seale and Joey Marsh, has been installing its new program, “The Pirates of the Caribbean.” I can't wait until the first home game to see and hear the band, but I also hear the band parents will be selling ice cream dipping dots in the consession stand. I have always wanted to try that.
