In 1979, I was in Betty Nichols' eighth-grade science class. The LeFlore County Science Fair was coming up, and she asked us if anyone wanted to enter.
I kept thinking all day what I could come up with for an entry. I was walking home on South McKenna that afternoon, and I looked over into the ditch. I saw water running down the side of the hill because it had rained, and the water cut through the red dirt like a knife through hot butter. That showed the scientific property of erosion, and I thought to myself â€” erosion. I had finally come up with a plan and a project for the science fair.
