A look back to the year 1979, Oklahoma State Science Fair

January 20, 2012

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 — erosion. I had finally come up with a plan and a project for the science fair.

The postseason has arrived for the Poteau Pirates wrestling team. The Pirates will be in the Class 4A District Duals beginning at 5 p.m. today in Wagoner.
“We're real anxious,” second-year Poteau Coach Chris Barbee said. “This is what we've been working toward all season. We've kind of had our ups and downs, but we're kind of coming into this on an upswing (two dual wins last Thursday against Fort Smith (Ark.) Southside and Talihina). We're looking for good things.”

Deer win the battle this year, but there is always next year

January 19, 2012

If you have a chance, come out and watch some of the Leflore County Tournament this weekend. It is a good chance to watch our area youth battling it out on the hardwood. Wister’s boys are in the semifinals for the first time since 1994 (at least that is when Jerry Carpenter and I decided). That is the year when some of my junior high players’ dads were playing.
Good luck boys!
