"We want our veterans to know about every service that is available to them,â€ť said Mullin in a press release. â€śThere are many resources out there and groups that want to help. We are bringing all of those resources together under one roof so veterans can easily learn about the services available to them in their own community and in the area in general.â€ť
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) â€” The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a state trooper has been arrested on complaints of kidnapping, rape and other sexual-assault crimes.
Trooper Eric Roberts was arrested Monday and taken to the Creek County jail. Capt. George Brown says the 42-year-old has been on administrative leave since July 24, when a woman alleged he raped her following a traffic stop. The woman has also filed a lawsuit.
If Poteau was to stay in the game, the Pirates had to perform at their max level. One major factor in the game would have to be the Pirates were issued 13 penalties for 106 yards. Instead of going 10 yards for first downs, most of the time they faced first-and-big yard.
The host Van Buren [Ark.] Pointers scored four second half touchdowns to post the 41-8 victory.
