Bandit Bowl IX Third-Fourth Grade Champions

November 6, 2012

Fifth-grade Bandit League team reaches championship game, but third-graders lose to Van Buren White in semifinals

November 6, 2012

The two Poteau Bandit League travelling teams who were still in the postseason last weekend split their games.
The fifth-grade team reached Saturday's title game with a 38-8 win over Van Buren (Ark.) Green last Saturday at Costner Stadium. The win put the locals into the title game against Union Christian, Ark., at 1 p.m. Saturday in Van Buren.
The news wasn't as good for the third-grade team, which lost 18-6 to Van Buren White last weekend in Van Buren to see its season come to an end.

Obama wins ... no wait, Romney wins

November 6, 2012

If Poteau pre-K students swayed the election, President Obama would be in office another four years.
Ms. Skinner's pre-k class held a mock election Tuesday, with President Obama winning 15 votes to 4.
But ... if the second grade students at Poteau Primary School spoke for the country, Mitt Romney would become the next president of the United States. 
All second grade students voted in their own mock election Tuesday. 
In the past week students have been learning about the election process and what it means to vote.

November 6, 2012

The 2012 football season for the Poteau Pirates ended Friday night. Even though the Pirates did not make the playoffs, they made all the fans realize that something good is about to happen and the future is bright.

A short and sweet column today; questionnaires still needed from coaches

November 6, 2012

Due to space constraints in today's edition, I'm not going to get too wordy this week.
However, let me remind county basketball coaches that I need their preseason questionnaire along with their schedule. The preseason questionnaires provide me the information needed to write the season-preview stories of our county basketball teams — like the story on Whitesboro's team in Thursday's edition and Howe's in Friday's paper.

Even Martin's presence couldn't help Thunder beat Hawks at home Sunday night

November 6, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY — Not that it should come as any surprise, but newcomer Kevin Martin has been a welcome addition to the Oklahoma City Thunder team. He averaged more than 18 points a game with Houston and has already shown consistency on the court with his shooting and ball handling. After scoring 15 points, with three 3-point baskets and five assists in his first game and following that up with 19 points, three 3s, three rebounds and two assists against Portland in the Thunder's home opener Friday night, Martin really showed what he can do scoring Sunday night.
