November 17, 2012

WARNER — Talihina started slow, which is not normal for the Golden Tigers, but they parlayed a couple of late scores and rock solid defense to hand the Warner Eagles their first defeat of the season by the score of 29-8 in a Class A second-round playoff game Friday night.
The Golden Tigers (11-1) will entertain the Cashion Wildcats at 7:30 p.m. next Friday at Doc Robinson Stadium in the Class A state quarterfinals.

At least one more week of county football playoffs

November 17, 2012

Way to go, Talihina Golden Tigers. They defeated the Warner Eagles 29-8 on Friday night to advance to next week's Class A quarterfinal playoff contest at Doc Robinson Stadium.
Two years ago, it was a fumble near the goal line in the waning seconds that doomed the Golden Tigers in the Class 2A second-round playoff loss to Colcord at Doc Robinson Stadium.
So, not only will there be one more week of high school football in the county, but that game will take place in LeFlore County.

Every fall, I try to take a turkey just before Thanksgiving during the yearly fall archery season.

Reminiscing about driving Mrs. Ruby Pearson

Back in the mid to late 1980s, I worked for Lucian Gassaway at Country Boy Furniture. I had many jobs because ol' Lucian owned a farm in Monroe, and I worked out there, too.
