KIM ROSS: Morning Mumbles

March 31, 2014

I am sorry I have been lax in my blog the past week, but I was submerged in the biggest annual special section published by Poteau Daily News. It is complete, I have rested and I have returned with my mind intact — maybe.

Where is Malaysian flight 370? Is it possible the Bermuda Triangle struck again? Are the many passengers and flight crew flying in another time dimension? Landed only to find everything they knew is no longer?
The question remains, how do you loose such a large plane with so many people aboard?

DAVID SEELEY: High School Hoops

What a high school basketball season it was for the 2013-14 campaign. LeFlore County had four teams make state — Arkoma's girls, Howe's boys and both Spiro teams.
Unfortunately, all four teams lost in the state quarterfinals. However, they were among the Elite 8 of their respective state tournament, and only eight total teams can say that.
So, congratulations to the Lady Mustangs, Lions, Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs. LeFlore County is proud of you.

"Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy," its National Donald Duck Day!
The prank-playing quackster made his screen debut in 1934 in "The Wise Little Hen."
His voice was the creation of Clarence Nash who brought vocal animation to the daring duck for 50 years.
Little did I know until I did some research that Donald is listed as the No.1 animated cartoon character to appear in films — 178 total. He also bests many comic book heros as he ranks No.5 for most published comic book character. Didn't know that either.

It has again been a busy morning in LeFlore County. An open house at Kiamichi Technology Center, run down a few crimes, progress, progress and more progress.
For those of you who don't know what progress is, it is the biggest special section published annually by Poteau Daily News. It showcases the growth and expansion of businesses, non-profit organizations, tourist attractions and many other locations in the county.
If you are a business owner and opened your doors in 2013, or if you made any changes to your existing business, give me a call. It is important to hear from you.

The number of LeFlore County high school basketball teams to make state this season will be at least three all total.

There will be at least one more county team join the Bulldogs as the winner of tonight's Howe-Pocola game will make state.
