Baiting, baseball and summer day trips

May 17, 2012

As I promised, I have more information regarding the baiting in the Wildlife Management Areas. I had a visit with James Lockhart in Shawnee last week on the way to the Class 2A State Tournament, and we had the opportunity to discuss the issue a little bit. He told me I needed to contact Jerry Ellis who is the vice chairman of tourism and wildlife in the senate.
I have not talked to Ellis yet, but I am planning on giving him a call — and you should do the same, if you have questions about the change in the baiting rule.

Arkoma interteam football scrimmage gives Mustangs a hoof up on next season

May 16, 2012

When the Arkoma Mustangs football team had its Blue-White Scrimmage Monday night at Mustang Field, Coach Mark Weatherton saw both good and not-as-good things.
For starters, all players saw a lot of action.
“I was really pleased,” he said. “We don't have a lot of players, so we needed to get some reps — and we got reps. We got a chance to work on the stuff we had to work on. We didn't get any injuries. It went well.”
