Captain Dan guides me to my best bow buck ever

November 10, 2011

Last weekend, my buddy Dan Carter of “Captain Dan’s SEOK Expeditions” took Koby and me down to a place he has hunted for several years in the national forest near Billy Creek. We went down Thursday and did some scouting, so we would know what tree to put our climbers in.
Dan dropped Koby and me off, and headed to another spot that he had picked out for himself. We got in out stands before daylight and were ready for the day — well, I thought we were ready. I soon realized that I had not worn enough clothing.

Remembering Ralph Perdue

November 9, 2011

First of all, I would like to send my condolences to the family of Coach Ralph Perdue.
I did not know Coach that well, but I do know that he will be missed by his family, friends and previous players alike. Ralph had been in poor health for a while.
I remember how he loved to play golf. I remember when he was not able to play, he would go out in ride in his golf cart watching his friend play golf.
May you play well up on heaven's links, Coach

Drama in Pocola

November 8, 2011

Conflicting items on the agenda for tonight's Pocola Board of Trustee's meeting should make for a lively event if nothing else. There is an item on the agenda to possibly terminate the employment of Police Chief Dale Fout and another employee named Liz Oden. Further down the agenda is an item to give several employees named a raise. Fout and Oden are also specifically listed under those items.
Clearly the items were placed on the agenda by different members of the board, and the meeting itself should make for an interesting one.
