All-State BB Game capped Howe hoopster's prep career

July 27, 2012

TULSA — Megan Brown’s time of playing basketball goes way back.
She’s been involved, “ever since I could dribble the ball,” she said. “About when I was 3 or 4.”
But Wednesday night marked the last time the Howe High School graduate played an official game on the hardwood, as she played for the East in the All-State Small School Girls Basketball Game at the Oral Roberts University Mabee Center. She got to start and scored just six points. But they were big, consisting of a pair of 3-point baskets. She also made her share of contributions in blocking.

For a moment, I felt like I was Batman

July 27, 2012

Last Friday afternoon, my son, Jacques, and I went to Poteau Theater to see “The Dark Knight Rises.” Johnathan and Nathan Rice were there, and those boys made me sit on the very front row. I haven't sat on the front row at the movie theater since 1996 when I was late for “Twister” because that was one of the only seats left in the whole theater.

All-State Baseball Game atmosphere special to Wister Wildcat outfielder

July 26, 2012

TULSA — Wister outfielder Caleb Hill is used to playing for a lot of state tournament teams from his days playing for the Wildcats, which includes a championship team from May 2011.
But Tuesday was different for the recent Wildcat graduate. He participated in the Small School All-State Baseball game as a member of the East team, which beat the West 4-0 at Johnson Stadium, located on the campus of Oral Roberts University.
What was different?
“Playing at a college baseball stadium, maybe, and a lot of fans — I’m not used to it,” Hill said.
Another was playing with new people.

Controlled hunt results are in, and some more fishing

July 26, 2012

Earlier this week, I went online to see if any of my family members drew out on a controlled hunt put on by the Oklahoma Wildlife Department of Conservation. For the first time since I have been putting in, not one of us in this house drew out. If you have not checked your results, go to the wildlife department's website, and click the big box on its home page.

Standridge, who participated in the U.S. International Sports Festival last week in Columbus, Ohio, played in 26 games in five days.
