Turkeys, fishing and baseball — it means spring is here

April 5, 2012

Turkey season is just around the corner, and I plan on going out to locate some turkeys this weekend for my boys to chase around during the southeast region’s youth season coming up April 21-22. Koby is always ready to go hunting, and Cash told me that he just wants to kill a turkey. So, that makes me even more excited about the upcoming season.

Election workers disheartened

April 4, 2012

Low voter turn out for Tuesday's Special Election in Poteau for Proposition 4 resulted in a number of poll workers being forced to work at poll locations all day without a single voter coming in to cast their ballot. Poteau polling places at precincts 212, 109, 211 and 103 all reported no ballots cast during the election. Three poll workers were still paid at each location for what amounts to at least a 14 hour day as polls open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. and workers are usually busy for about an hour before and an hour after.

Not a complete county tournament this spring

April 4, 2012

When one looks at the 2012 LeFlore County Baseball Tournament bracket, one of the biggest things which is noticed is that there are only 11 teams in the field and not the customary 13.
The reason is quite simple.
This year's tournament host was Arkoma, but due to lack of facilities and staff members to staff two sites for the first two days, it had to give up on the chance to be the host school.
