In the Civil War, it was the North which defeated the South. However, in the 2012 LeFlore County All-Star Basketball Games, it was the South which rose.
The South teams swept the North in the latest all-star games which took place Tuesday night at Carl Albert State College's Mick Thompson Fieldhouse. The South girls defeated the North 33-26, which was then followed by a South boys victory over the North by a score of 73-69.

As I promised, I have more information regarding the baiting in the Wildlife Management Areas. I had a visit with James Lockhart in Shawnee last week on the way to the Class 2A State Tournament, and we had the opportunity to discuss the issue a little bit.

I have not talked to Ellis yet, but I am planning on giving him a call â€” and you should do the same, if you have questions about the change in the baiting rule.
