Balloonfest brings in visitors and dollars

October 26, 2011

Another Balloonfest has
come and gone and the
Poteau Chamber of
Commerce is still reeling
from the more than 20,000
attendees of this year's festival.
According to Poteau
Chamber President, Karen
Wages, the first year the
Chamber has organized the
event was a huge success.
They set goals for sponsorship
that were met and the
arm band sales were above
and beyond all they had
imagined.
On Friday, the Chamber
was hectic with pre-sales
causing them to open a virtual
drive through to meet the
demand of the more than
3,000 armbands they sold
and over $7,000 in concert

Celebrating the scary

October 26, 2011

Every year, Carl Albert
State College film students
release the horrors of their
dark imaginations at the
annual Cinemortis Student
Film Festival. This year,
CASC film students are
inviting the public to take
a trip into their own twisted
and sleep-deprived subconscious.
The theme for
this year’s Cinemortis
Film Festival is
Nightmares.
On Thursday, October
27 at 7 p.m. in the Hamilton
Auditorium on CASC’s
Poteau campus, CASC
Film Studies instructor
Marcus Blair and students
invite you to witness a
slate of films that will
scare, disgust, and delight
you.
