With the Poteau Lady Pirates softball team reloading after losing six of its starters to graduation from last fall's team, some may have wondered if the success would still happen. It has.
The Lady Pirates have amassed a 26-8 record, five straight LeFlore County fast-pitch titles and 11 straight district titles.
â€śI think our chemistry has really clicked,â€ť senior first baseman Chelsey Campbell said. â€śThe freshmen have really helped us. Everybody has stepped up like they needed to.â€ť

NORMAN â€” We should have all expected a game like this â€” coming right after a great win on the road at Notre Dame and right before the Red River Rivalry next Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The Oklahoma Sooners didnâ€™t play very well, but a win is a win at this point in the season. The Sooners are still undefeated after a lackluster 20-17 victory over â€¨Texas Christian on Saturday night at Owen Field.
STILLWATER â€” There's no question that the Oklahoma State Cowboys football team laid an egg on Sept. 28 when they opened Big 12 play against West Virginia.
However, things looked better for the Pokes on Saturday afternoon for their Big 12 home opener at Boone Pickens Stadium against Kansas State as they outlasted the Wildcats 33-29. Mind you, I didn't say a lot better, but better nontheless.
I have a confession to make. I have sat down several times and watched â€śHannah Montanaâ€ť when it was on the Disney Channel with my grandchildren. Now, every time I read a magazine or turn on the Internet, I am greeted with several things about the show's star, Miley Cyrus, that makes me disappointed. For example, she is getting new tattoos. Last week, it showed her getting the soles of her feet inked. Or, she is taking off her clothes and posing naked. She said that she was born to be wild.
I like Hannah better than I do Miley.
