Can you believe that the 2013 fast-pitch softball and fall baseball seasons are just about here — as is the start of football practice?

A wonderful week spent in 'Titletown, USA'

August 1, 2013

On July 25, I, along with Richard, Mike, Jim and Matthew Reif, “borrowed” a GMC Acadia belonging to Richard's wife, Paula, and headed to Green Bay, Wis. — also known as “Titletown, USA” and home of my beloved Packers — to be present when the Packers started this season's training camp.

Wister pitcher closes game for Small East in All-State Game

July 31, 2013

TULSA — Tyler Gibson had his moments Tuesday night in the Small School All-State Baseball Game at J.L. Johnson Stadium on the campus of Oral Roberts University.
The 2013 Wister High School graduate came in relief of Caney Valley’s Kyle Knight in the sixth inning. In his two innings, he allowed a run on a hit, a walk and struck out a batter as the Small East beat the Small West 9-5.
“It was great,” Gibson said. “Coming out here and being able to close it, it was an honor to be able do it in the All-State Game."

Local youth has encounter with snake, wins the battle; Beast Feast in Muskogee coming up this month

July 31, 2013

How about this snake story? Eleven-year-old Gavin Garrett of Poteau was hanging out with his grandfather, Don Garrett, this week when they came across a five-foot, six-inch long rattlesnake in Don’s barn. The snake was nine inches around at its largest point, and had 13 rattles and a button.
When Gavin and Don found the big dude inside the door of his barn, Gavin shot it with a .22 pistol that he had with him only to realize that the pistol had rat shot in it.
