U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary issues boating safety statement

March 28, 2013

Spring time may be just around the corner but the present cold waters of Green Country are still a hazard for hunters and fishermen. Countless boats are being put in the waters of local lakes, rivers and reservoirs as area outdoorsmen and women are enjoying the warmer air temperatures. Keep in mind the water temperatures are still cold enough to pose a serious hypothermia threat. Nationwide in 2011, 75 percent of all boating fatalities are the result of drowning. Almost 85 percent of the victims were not wearing life jackets.

Tennessee vacation is over, and Double Cross Calls just beginning

March 28, 2013

Well, we made it back from Tennessee without incident. The Smokey Mountains are awesome, and there are a bunch of deer and turkeys out there. I am planning a hunting trip to “The Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area” in the near future.
We spent part of the vacation on the shores of Kentucky Lake, and got to fish just a bit even though the weather was not very good. Wally Burchett let us stay in his cabin, which is bigger than my house.

Biggest soccer game in Poteau history set for tonight

March 28, 2013

Tonight's soccer game between the top two boys soccer teams in Class 4A — No. 1 Fort Gibson and No. 2 Poteau — at 7 p.m. is perhaps the most important soccer match in Poteau Pirate history.
The Pirates lost last year's state semifinal game to eventual state champion Oklahoma City Mount St. Mary.
The Pirates lost three All-State players as Spencer Hall, Blake Williams and Jesse Woodson graduated. However, due to their expertise and returning most of their team intact, the Pirates are drawing favorable attention and affirmation.
