Attorney: Man arrested in Okla. cold case innocent

June 6, 2013

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The attorney for an Oklahoma man arrested in the 1992 disappearance and deaths of two women and a girl says his client is innocent and that charges against him are part of the state's ploy to get other family members to talk.

Bristow resident Grover Prewitt Jr. is charged with being an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder in the deaths of Wendy Camp, her 6-year-old daughter, Cynthia Britto, and Camp's sister-in-law, Lisa Kregear. Prewitt has pleaded not guilty.

It is time for some fishing

June 6, 2013

June is here, and my schedule for this month is on my fridge. When Paula penciled in the games, I could not believe that we only had one day off in the month.
Of course, we had a rainout, and I have rescheduled a game for that day. I have decided that I may have to go back to work to get some rest.
On the bright side, that rain out gave me a chance to do some fishing with Chuck Restine.
We headed to Lake Tenkiller and tried to catch some smallmouth bass. I managed to catch one, along with a couple of black bass and a couple of sand bass.
