Heavener football team to get challenge from Roland

September 27, 2012

The Heavener Wolves are on a two-game winning streak since losing a disappointing home opener two weeks ago to the Hartshorne Miners. Since then, the Wolves (3-1 overall and 1-0 in District 3A-8) have posted wins over Gore (31-21) and Valliant (47-17) in last week's district opener.
“We feel like we've turned the corner, and we've put that loss behind us,” said Carl Lee, Heavener's new coach. “We're heading in the right direction — or at least we think we're heading in the right direction. We're not looking back at that loss. We're just trying to get a good winning streak going.”

It is just like Christmas at my house these days

September 27, 2012

This time of the year gets my blood pumping. The start of hunting season is one day I look forward to every year. I am almost like a kid at Christmas when Oct. 1 rolls around.
As luck would have it, opening day is on a Monday this year, so I will have to wait until the evening hunt to climb into my stand this year.
I have different tree stands hung for whatever wind direction we have, and my cameras have captured some deer coming through. So, all I need now is for opening day to get here.

September 26, 2012

About all that was lacking at Monday's “Pink-Out” breast cancer awareness softball game as singing pop star Pink to sing the national anthem.
With players and umpires wearing pink for the occasion, the Poteau Lady Pirates defeated the Red Oak Lady Eagles 5-2.
After the game, about 15 players from both teams, and Poteau coaches Misty Collins and Laney Groom, took part in a home run derby. Poteau senior right fielder Gabba Wilson and Collins tied with five homers, but Collins conceded the title to Wilson — who was presented a pink bat for her win.
