January 2, 2015

IDABEL — The Heavener and Spiro high school basketball teams weren’t the only local hoopsters to see some holiday action this week. So, too, did the Talihina Golden Tigers.
The Golden Tigers finished fourth in the Idabel Winter Classic, which took place Monday through Wednesday.
Talihina, which opened with a 46-42 nailbiting win over the Broken Bow Savages in Monday’s opener, lost 54-42 to the Haworth Lions in Tuesday’s championship semifinals in a battle of two of Class 2A’s top eight teams in the state and fell 75-68 to the host Warriors, ranked in Class 3A, in the third-place game.

A New Year’s resolution

January 2, 2015

I hope you’ve had a great holiday season. The old year has now passed and we’re two days into the new year. Some people make New Year’s resolutions, and they’re hard to keep.
I’m going to try something simple this year. My friend, Nina Vu, a.k.a. the “Ping Pong Master, has a saying — “Wake up, be amazing and go to bed.” I like that, but I’m going to put my own wrinkle on it — “Wake up, be amazing, serve, make a new friend a day and go to bed.”
