Boating, fishing and rescuing a turtle

June 21, 2012

I got my boat back, and took Cash and his buddy, Keaton Canada, out on a little fishing trip Tuesday morning. The boys each caught two fish, and I caught one —- but they had a heck of a good time, and I bet I will be taking them again soon.

New Whitesboro boys hoop coach anxious to get going

June 20, 2012

While at Wilburton Public Schools, Billy Karr was having to deal with basketball players who played football for the Diggers. Now that he's the new coach of the Whitesboro Bulldogs basketball team, he won't have to concern himself with that any more.
“It had a lot to do with the fact that it's not a football school,” Karr said about taking the coaching job. “I'll be getting my kids in October, and start the season Nov. 1. I did a lot of my assistant coaching job in Okarche with Ray West. I just decided that it was time (to go for this job).”
