Road rage goes too far

August 19, 2011

A road rage incident led
to charges against a
Panama woman this week
after she allegedly threw
objects at another vehicle
striking a young child in
the face.
Jamie Jean Lovell, 39,
of Panama, was formally
charged in the LeFlore
County District Court with
the felony charge of throwing
a substance or object
at a moving vehicle or
occupant.
The charges stem from
an incident that reportedly
began in Fort Smith, Ark.,
and continued into Pocola
on July 11.

Child Support Awareness Month. Thank you to all who participated in the event.

School has started and students at the
Poteau Primary School are diving into
reading. Starting in kindergarten through
second grade, students engage in the
Accelerated Reader Program.
In the program, students read or are
read books and then take a computerized
test over the book at school. Based
on the scores from those tests, students
are awarded AR points. These points are
totaled throughout the year and factor
into contests held by the school.
Poteau Schools and the Parent-
Teacher Association also sponsor two
book fairs a year, one in Fall and one in
Spring.
