An eggs-tremely fun time at 2012 BalloonFest

October 25, 2012

I would like to thank everyone who came out to the 2012 BalloonFest last weekend, and threw eggs at Alan Hensley and yours truly in our “egganator” again this year. All the money raised went to the fourth-grade Poteau Bandit League football team. I would also like to thank Price Cutter for giving us a few eggs.
Nine-year-old Harley Jordan of Lequire and 50-year-old Cheryl Wineland of Panama were our top throwers this year. They both had strong arms with deadly accuracy. To say we got egg on our faces is an understatement.

Senior DE says Broken Bow game as huge as last week's Muldrow contest

October 25, 2012

When the Poteau Pirates snapped their two-game football losing streak last Thursday night at Costner Stadium with their 41-21 victory over former Poteau assistant coach Rob Johnson and his Muldrow Bulldogs, it kept the Pirates' postseason aspirations alive.
“It was pretty big,” senior defensive end Dylan Stone said about the victory. "We had lost over the previous couple of weeks. We needed that win real bad. It's gotten us up and ready for this week.”

Check out some successful youth hunters from our area

October 24, 2012

This week's column will be dedicated to the youth hunters of our area. I will keep this very short so as many of the deer hunting photographs which I got can run, and everyone can get a chance to see many of the successful young hunters from the LeFlore County area. In fact, thanks to sports editor David Seeley, today's edition has two outdoor pages to help get as many deer hunt photographs in as possible, so be sure you get your hands on a copy.

Arkoma looks to end home football season with win on Senior Night over SW Christian; game time has been moved to 7 p.m. Friday

October 24, 2012

The Arkoma Mustangs football team wants to end its home season on a positive note as the Mustangs will play their home finale against Southwest Christian Academy at 7 p.m. Friday at Mustang Field. The game time was moved up 30 minutes to help SCA get home faster since a lot of their athletes will take the ACT test Saturday morning at home in Norman.
The Mustangs (3-5) saw their two-game winning streak snapped Thursday night with a 64-18 loss to Thackerville, which is leading District C-4. The final score really did not indicate just how well offensively Arkoma played.
