Abandoned coal mines restored to native condition

October 24, 2014

SALLISAW, Okla. (AP) — The Cherokee Nation and the U.S. Department of Interior have worked to transform about 100 acres of former abandoned coal mines in Sequoyah County to a swath with lush bluestem and other native grass, a 25-acre lake and wildlife.

The tribe worked with the federal agency for the past year to replace high, dangerous embankments and fill in strip pits to restore the area back to productive, usable land.

It was a ‘no bull’ weekend

October 24, 2014

OK, I was just kidding about riding a bull. We went to the Professional Bull Riders event Satuday night during the final day of the 2014 BalloonFest. They had some big, mean, nasty bulls the professionals had a tough time riding. When you see it up close and watch those guys get slung to the ground that hard, I just couldn’t even dream of getting on one of those dudes behind that gate in that chute. It would really take a man with nerves of steel to be a bull rider.

Undermanned Heavener Wolves travel to meet 3A-8 rival Spiro Bulldogs on Friday night

October 23, 2014

When the Heavener Wolves (2-5 overall, 1-3 in District 3A-8) travels to meet the Spiro Bulldogs (4-2, 1-2) at 7 p.m. Friday at McClain Stadium, playoff ramifications will be at stake. However, the Wolves will be slightly undermanned.
The Wolves will be without 10 starters for tonight’s game due to them serving one-game suspensions for leaving the bench during the game-ending scrum during last week’s home game with the Roland Rangers.
