Y'all need to start getting ready. Super Bowl XLVII Weekend is nearing, and you know what that means.
It means the 20th annual He-Man Punt, Pass and Kick Competition will take place at noon Feb. 3 at â€śThe Jody Ray Sports Complex,â€ť located at 306 Strip Pit Road. The cost is $5 per person.
As country singer Jim Reeves sang, â€śThis is It.â€ť This is going to be the last one because I'm going to retire afterwards.

LeFlore County Sheriff's Department released the name of two burn victims involved in a Monday night house fire near Spiro.
According to LeFlore County Undersheriff Kendall Morgan, Myrtle Cooper, 47, and Elec Cusick, 39, were the two victims found unconscious outside a home on Stewart Loop.
The fire still is under investigation, according to Morgan, which is why the release of the names was delayed.
