I hope y'all like 2012 LeFlore County JH Tournament Guide

December 30, 2011

Since I sort of did not make the 2011 LeFlore County Junior High Tournament Guide the way it should have been created a year ago, I pledged to myself that I would make amends for it when the 2012 Guide was created. So, I did.

Cameron USPS Contract

December 30, 2011

The status of a local post office is out in the open after the United States Postal Service provided the property owner with a lease agreement that seems less than acceptable.
According to property owner, Steven Katten, his family built and have owned the Cameron Post Office property for 40 years. The building, which was built to USPS specifications by his mother, has housed the Post Office since its completion. That may change soon due to what Katten cites as an "onerous proposal" by the USPS.
