Spiro plays home opener tonight in battle of Bulldogs with Muldrow

September 7, 2012

One thing is for sure, the Bulldogs will win tonight's game at McClain Stadium. The Spiro Bulldogs will entertain the Muldrow Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. tonight in Spiro's home opener.
While being home will hopefully give Spiro (0-1) an edge, it still comes down to executing plays on the field.
“No matter where you play, you have to go play ball,” said Chris Bunch, Spiro's coach. “You can have the home-field advantage, but you still have to go play. You still have to go block and tackle.”

Are you ready for some football — Tower Drive-In style?

September 7, 2012

We took our boys up to Tower Drive-In Wednesday night for the first National Football League game of the year, the Dallas Cowboys against the New York Giants. When the game came on the big screen, the 1989 version of “Are You Ready for Some Football?” by Hank Williams, Jr. was played Boy, that brought back a lot of memories, and it was good to hear ol' Hank again. The picture was so clear, and we had Poteau's fantasy guru, Cody “Ace” Repass giving us the play-by-play with updates.

City's audit gives good ratings

September 6, 2012

The Poteau City Council received the 2010-11 fiscal audit report Tuesday night during their regular meeting.
The report showed there were many improvements since the previous audit and only a few insignificant issues to address.
According to the report, the City saw $6.3 million increase during the fiscal year but the majority of that increase was due to a donation for the Donald W. Reynolds Community Center.
The 2011-12 audit is being completed by BDK, LLP, a governmental accounting agency.
