School starting means fall is just around the corner

August 23, 2012

Summer is officially over, and school starts this week. This means that dove season is just around the corner, and archery season is not far behind that. With this in mind, be sure that you and your kids have taken the hunter safety course. There is one scheduled this weekend at the Kiamichi Technology Center in Poteau at 8 a.m. Saturday. Don’t waste time; the season will begin before you know it! Another thing you need to be aware of are the Oklahoma Free Hunting Days are taking place Sept. 1-2, during which Oklahoma residents do not need a hunting license or HIP permit to go afield.

Just the minimum this week

August 21, 2012

Due to space constraints in today's edition, I won't be too wordy. The schedule at the end of the column talks about all what's coming up.
I will say that the complete brackets of the Carl Albert Tournament and the Whitesboro Tournament will run in a later edition this week, either on Wednesday and/or Thursday. Thus, I won't list the complete schedule of games in those events until then, also as a space savor.
Poteau at Red Oak, 4 p.m.
Cameron at Panama, 4 p.m.
Whitesboro at Heavener, 5:30 p.m.
