Witness tampering
alleged by defense
Attorney challenges Thacker investigators
By Kim Ross
PDN Editor
A request by the defense lawyer of
accused murder Elvis Aaron Thacker, 25,
to strike his alleged confession in the 2010
death of 22-year-old Brianna Ault on the
grounds of multiple constitutional rights
violations was denied Wednesday.
During the continuation of Thacker’s
preliminary hearing that has spanned three
months, a motion to suppress evidence was
heard in conjunction as testimony by wit-
nesses for the defense took the stand.
During the hearing, presided over by
Special Judge Jeff Singer,
testimony was heard by
Thacker and his prior
roommate Floyd Jones,
Fort Smith police officers
and the Sebastian County
Prosecuting Attorney
Daniel Shue.
First on the stand,
Thacker spoke of his mem-
ory of the day he was arrested and after-
ward during his hospitalization and deten-
tion. He talked of defending himself when
Wolf Ridge reopening
Efforts to save golf course began in February
By David Seeley
PDN Sports Editor
For many, Friday cannot
come fast enough. Ever
since Wolf Ridge Golf
Course was closed last year,
several individuals have
tried to get it reopened.
Their persistence has paid
off.
Wolf Ridge will reopen
at 8 a.m. Friday and remain
open until dusk.
The long, drawn-out pro-
cess began in February.
“It went to auction on
Feb. 21,” said local attor-
ney Marc Bovos, Wolf
Ridge Board of Directors
president, at last Thursday’s
Poteau Kiwanis Club meet-
ing at Western Sizzlin.
“At the time, there was-
some information that the
owners, Shannon and Mitzi
Burkhart, put out that they
had a serious buyer. They
sold the golf course in three
pieces at the auction. They
sold the golf course prop-
erty, the club house and the
maintenance buildings and
golf carts in another. With
the information that had
been put out by the owners,
they said they had a solid
buyer, and residents didn’t

The healthcare industry
in LeFlore County accounts
for $43 million in payroll
annually, according to Mike
Carter, CEO of Eastern
Oklahoma Medical Center.
Carter was the guest
speaker Wednesday at the
Poteau Rotary Club. The
numbers were included in a
study by the Oklahoma
Office of Rural Health, the
OSU Center for Rural
Health, the Oklahoma
Cooperative Extension
Service and Oklahoma
State University. Some of
the data came from a local
survey.
The study examined the
impact of the healthcare
industry on the area served
by EOMC. The study was
released in October.
Nationally, the cost of
health care has risen from
$356 per person in 1970 to
$2,700 in 2011 and is pro-
jected to rise to $4,781 by
2021.
According to the study
there are 811 people
employed in health care in
LeFlore County, compared

get really excited about
there not being a golf course
to everyone’s dismay at the
time.
“That left the property in
a situation where people
got really interested. People
who live up there wanted to
try to preserve the golf
course. All would agree that
it’s an important thing for
the community. It’s a great
place to be, a beautiful lay-
out — and an economic
draw, according to the
mayor [Jeff Shockley].
Anytime he’s courting any-
body to come to Poteau for
business and the possibility
of relocating, that’s about
the first place he takes them.
He’ll let them sit out on that
back deck [of the club-
house] and look over that
valley. There’s not too many
places that would have that
kind of look where you can
come up to the 18th fair-
way, get on that green and
look across that valley. So,
we’re really blessed with
what that is — and it could
be so much more, and
there’s so much available
up there for building and
development.
“There were a lot of
issues that went on. In the
course of it all, the gentle-
man who bought the golf
course eventually decided to
develop the property for
housing. He chose the No. 2
green as the first place to
start to build a house for
sale. When that developed,
there were some legal issues
and proceedings that went
on. The problem with the
golf course track property
itself was that it wasn’t very
specific on that land itself
that was going to keep that
land a golf course. There
were laws developed in
other states that said that if
have a development like
Wolf Ridge was, where you
sell lots around a golf course,
that if you promote the prop-
erty as a golf course — and
you give them the expecta-
tions that if they build a nice
home around a golf course
that it would remain a golf
course. The property then
can’t be used for other pur-
poses. That was the legal
issue that was presented in a
lawsuit that stopped the con-
struction of the house on the
No. 2 green.
“After that took place,
then negotiations took
place. Finally, there was a
group that came together
that bought all of the prop-
erty and put it all back
together. That group has
made an arrangement with
another group of about 20
to 30 people who put up
money to buy the golf
course property, and run
and open it up as a golf
course that we can all be
proud of as a community,
and that can be used. We’ve
had an unbelievable amount
of volunteers who’ve been
up there working on that
property. It’s taken a whole
community of people to see
that this happened. I’ve had
several people tell me it
looks better now than it
ever did.”
Once the new group took
over, there was plenty of
work to be done.
“It’s almost phenomenal
to me that you would get in
that position that those three
landowners would have had
in what to do with their
property — and what they
had to have to get it back
together,” said Bovos, who
also said the clubhouse has
been refurbished. “One of
the landowners just tried to
keep the property all togeth-
er for the sake of the golf
course. It was really some-
thing that it was able to be
put back together again.
When the golf course was
taken over, the greens were
dead. The greens had to be
replanted, and there was
some discussion on what to
plant them with. We’re for-
tunate that Sonny Faust did
that about 10 years ago, and
he was available to come
back and assist with that.
They’re as green as they
could be. They’re not as
good as they’re going to be,
but they’re playable. By
and large, we’re in a situa-
tion that lots of progress is
being made. The No. 2
green has been rebuilt.
“One of the big issues
the course has had in the
past is that it did not have a
reliable water source to
water the fairways. There
was enough water for the
greens, but the fairways
were a problem. It came
down to water capacity.
Ronnie Blake has been
involved in this, and he has
had a construction project
down on expanding and
making things more useful,
and making it a larger
capacity for water storage
to have enough water to
water the fairways — and
that will solve our prob-
lems. We’ll have to work
on a pumping arrangement
out of that, but that won’t
be that hard to address.”
Bill Brown, who was the
other speaker at last week’s
Kiwanis Club meeting, has
come in to become the Wolf
Ridge director of golf oper-
ations. It’s his intentions to
turn Wolf Ridge into the
renoun golf-playing facility
in the area.
“Part of my job descrip-
tion is to make sure every-
thing flows as far as the
golf course and the club
house are concerned, but
I’m also a salesman,”
Brown said. “I want to help
them [the group]. We need
to push the membership up.
Hopefully, we’ll evolve into
a country club — right now,
it’s semi-club. When we
reach 200 members. we’ll
close it as a country club.
We hope that’s sooner than
later. There will be pro-
grams designed for every-
body. This will be a very
affordable situation. We’ll
have a level for everything.
We’ll have [a rate] for out-
of-town/out-of-radius mem-
bership, corporate member-
ship, junior membership,
single membership and
family memberships.
Whatever you fall under,
we can fix you up.
I want to be able to talk
it up so that the people in
this community will have
an interest in what we have.
What Marc and these peo-
ple have done, they have a
passion to where this will
be a real, first-class act.
We’re going to bring in the
top tournaments. We’re
going to talk to Titleist
about bringing in a top-
notch tournament. We’re
going to make it to where
this golf course becomes a
profit center and that every-
one can be proud of —
whether you’re going to be
a member or just come up
and play. This is only going
to do one thing for Poteau
— it’s going to put it on the
face of the earth. We’ve
already brought in the Class
4A boys and girls regionals.
They had lost it when there
wasn’t a facility that didn’t
have 18 holes.”
Brown also will be pres-
ent to give golf lessons.
“I specialize in teach-
ing,” he said. “I learned it
from the great Harvey
Pennick. He was the pro-
fessional at Austin Country
Club. He was the only one
who ever offered me advice.
When I turned professional,
I took his advice. He asked
me to do him a favor —
take the advice he had given
me and take it to the next
generation. There’s a lot of
kids coming along that I
want to work with. His pas-
sion was teaching, and so is
mine. Having an opportu-
nity to have a facility like
this has been a dream come
true. We’re going to make it
the very best, with your
help. I’m going to make it
to where the junior pro-
grams are going to be top-
notch. We’re going to try to
promote the kids to stay off
the streets, and come up
here and play golf. We’re
also going to promote tour-
nament golf, and we’ll have
a pro shop that will be a
full-service pro shop.”
However, it’s going to
take the community to get
involved to make this proj-
ect work.
“If we want it to be better,
we need the fairways to grow
in very well and the greens to
develop. We think we have a
good basis for that. We think
it’s on a good solid footing
for now, but what it needs is
continued support. It’s not
going to make it if it’s not
going to have the number of
members needed with mem-
bership fees to play there and
support it with participation
that it needs to stay open.
What we hope is that at this
point, the people who put
their money in aren’t expect-
ing any kind of return.
Nobody in that part of it is
even trying to make a living
out of it. We’re hoping that’s
going to help it have finan-
cial success. It’s a substantial
project. The labor costs are
high. The cost of keeping the
grass up is high. We’re fortu-
nate that we don’t have to
pay for water, and that helps
a lot. Still, with all involved,
it’s going to be a significant
challenge to make it all work.
I would just encourage any
interested to consider being
involved.”

Carter said health care jobs traditionally have been
“recession proof.” He said the average salary of someone
working in the health care field locally is around $50,000.
“Those are some pretty good jobs,” he said.
The hospital’s primary service area is Poteau, Panama,
Shady Point, Howe, Heavener and Wister, accounting for
a population of 27,416 in 2010. The secondary service
area is Spiro, Pocola, Bokoshe, Cameron and Hodgen,
accounting for 16,727. He said many residents in the sec-
ondary area seek health care services in Fort Smith.
A broader survey, that includes direct and indirect pro-
viders, said 2,700 people were employed in healthcare
occupations, accounting for a payroll of $61.5 million.
That survey included EOMC, area doctors, dentists and
“other medical professionals,” nursing and protective care
providers, home health providers, pharmacies and medical
and diagnostic labs. “That includes anything that looks
like it might have something to do with health,” said
Carter.
what appeared to be an OG&E worker
and others kicked their way into his
home with guns drawn. He testified to
being struck with a stun gun twice, as
well as being shot. Thacker gave tear-
ful testimony that while at the hospi-
tal, Fort Smith officers tortured and
taunted him, stating they would cause
him trouble breathing by obstructing
tubes to his lungs while he was con-
nected to a ventilator.
Afterwards, Shue was called to the
stand and it wasn’t long before things
became heated and tempers appeared
to flare. Defense attorney Gretchen
Mosley accused Shue of witness tam-
pering as well as he or his office
“burying” evidence. Mosley said if
Shue or his office weren’t responsible
then the case had been sanitized by
the Fort Smith police department
before it arrived at his office.
With Mosley’s accusations, which
during court she made on multiple
occasions, LeFlore County District
Attorney Jeff Smith objected to
Mosley’s allegations and objected to
her contining her line of questioning.
Singer attempted to allow Mosley to
find a different way to make her point,
but as the questioning continued,
Smith’s objections continued. Singer
eventually ruled in Smith’s favor to
which Mosley responded by request-
ing her line of questioning be put on
court record for later appeal efforts.
As the suppression portion of the
hearing began to wind down, Mosley
argued Thacker’s Fourth, Fifth and
Sixth Amendment rights had been
violated.
“Police can’t use a ruse to gain
entry into a home with reasonable
right to privacy and search ... officers
didn’t appear to have a no-knock war-
rant ...,” said Mosley. “They must
knock and announce themselves,
identify themselves ... present the
warrant. ...there was no evidence,
none that they produced a warrant.”
Mosley argued Thacker was inter-
rogated after his arrest without being
Mirandized.
First Assistant District Attorney
Marion Fry countered that the
Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals
had upheld a previous ruling that offi-
cers can create a diversion or a ruse to
create a search warrant and that the
potential miranda violation commit-
ted by the first interrogating officer
would not affect the following inter-
views.
The issue of Thacker being under
the influence of morphine during the
interviews was raised by Mosley, to
which Fry said Thacker appeared
coherent in the interview and know-
ingly and intelligently waived his
rights.
Singer denied the motion to supress
and the preliminary hearing resumed.
As of press time Mosley still had one
witness left to call to the stand, alleg-
edly an eyewitness to the burning of
Ault’s car.
Mosley also said she had a video to
present from Green Energy that
showed only one person at the car the
time of the burning and that it per-
tained to the defense of her client.

“We’re not going to allow anyone to inflict economic
pain on millions of our own people just to make an ideo-
logical point.”
That is what President Obama told the Congressional
Black Caucus Foundation about the upcoming debt ceiling
negotiations, according to an Associated Press report.
The president’s words are hollow given his administra-
tion has made it their mission to pick winners and losers in
many areas of America’s economy — inflicting economic
pain on those who fall to the wrong side of the president’s
agenda.
It is also troubling that pursuing a balanced budget and
any amount of fiscal restraint is now considered an “ideo-
logical point” by an American president. Using the presi-
dent’s logic, hard-working Oklahomans who live within a
budget are making an ideological stand when they chose not
to max out their credit cards. The fixed-income senior citi-
zens who choose between food and medicine are doing so
for ideological reasons. The business owners who cannot
afford to keep their doors open are laying off employees on
ideological grounds.
The Obama Administration has already declared a “war
on coal” that will inflict economic pain on many middle and
low-income Americans who depend on the affordability of
coal to turn the lights on in their homes. Manufacturers will
also pay a higher price for energy — which is passed on
directly to the consumer in the form of higher prices and
more economic pain.
Unleashing the bureaucrats on America’s energy industry
in order to pick and choose the winners is the president’s
way to side-step Congress and any common-sense checks
and balances for his ideological point.
The ideological philosophy that government should be in
charge of our health care will come with significant eco-
nomic pain for many Americans. This disastrous law was
rammed through by a strictly partisan (ideological) vote. As
the details of this terrible law come to light, it becomes more
evident of the financial hardships that will be inflicted on
everyday people and the economic backbone of this country
— small businesses.
The administration and its U.S. Department of Justice
sued to stop the merger of American Airlines and US
Airways after not stepping in at mergers between other car-
riers. Reports estimated that the economic pain of this ideo-
logical point would have been felt locally by about 6,300
American Airlines employees in Tulsa. Recently the
Department of Justice announced it had reached a settlement
with the airlines requiring them to give up landing slots and
airport gates at certain airports in order to proceed.
At the end of the day, rhetoric never trumps reality and
clever sound bites cannot replace sound policy.
President Abraham Lincoln wisely said, “You can’t
escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.”
Neither can our current president escape the reality of
tomorrow — when the country’s bills must be paid, when
the economy is disastrously affected by his budget-busting
government health care, when people cannot afford to pay
their electric bill or lose their jobs altogether — by labeling
the situation of today an “ideological point.”

Luke, having been
imprisoned for acts of petty
crime was not a coopera-
tive inmate. Always wait-
ing for the right moment to
escape his prison chains,
Luke did escape for short-
lived freedom on more than
one occasion.
Captain, the warden of a
tough prison would make
an example of Luke fol-
lowing each escape while
other inmates were forced
to watch. The Captain pref-
aced his punishment of
Luke with “some men you
just can’t reach.”
Those of you my age
will remember the classic
scene between Paul
Newman (Luke) and
Strother Martin (Captain).
Martin, a diminutive man
was cast standing atop a
hill with Luke on his knees
and a crushed man.
Projecting his uncompro-
mising authority to other
inmates, the Captain
drawled the famous line
from Cool Hand Luke;
“what we’ve got here is
failure to communicate.”
Now, nearly five years
after the election of
President Obama, we have
a public finally beginning
to understand that we have
elected a man to the presi-
dency that will say or do
anything, whether it be
untruthful or unconstitu-
tional — better late than
never. Each new day of this
president and his staff is
spent in search of a lie to
cover a previous lie. Of
course this president has a
legion of press, pundits and
base to affirm his explana-
tions for the “misunder-
standings” and his failure
to communicate the full
scope and intent of
Obamacare.
By now the press must
be getting wary of carrying
water for this president. If
it were only the Obamacare
issue, we could dismiss the
mess created as a work in
progress and in need of a
tweak, but Obama had a
track record of wrongful
conduct and deception. We
need only look at two stim-
ulus packages, bailout of
the banks, auto industry,
unions, and insurance com-
panies, cash for clunkers,
green energy projects, NSA
data collection of citizens,
IRS punishment of politi-
cal opponents, Fast and
Furious gun running,
Benghazi coverup and I
could name more. Some of
this conduct led to the death
of Americans. Obama was
a disaster before Obamacare
was a disaster. The public
having elected him twice
refused to face reality that
this president is fundamen-
tally flawed or incompetent
— both unacceptable
Tea Party’ers recognized
and warned of the Obama,
Democratic Party and pro-
gressive Republican agen-
da — fundamental trans-
formation from individual
responsibility to collectiv-
ism. For their effort to
inform an uninterested pub-
lic of these prevarications,
they have been labeled as
terrorist, anarchist and rac-
ist.
Luke eventually pushed
an autocratic and uncom-
promising Captain to the
edge and with Luke’s final
escape, the Captain orders
the ultimate punishment.
Now ask yourself, how
many times have you wit-
nessed the message from
this autocratic and uncom-
promising president of
“some men you just can’t
reach and what we’ve got
here is a failure to commu-
nicate?” — followed with
punishment of those who
disagree with his conduct.
“Fi rst comes
ignorance,next poverty and
then you lose your free-
dom”

Oklahomans being responsible
with open carry
Serial prevaricator or incompetence?
Editorial excerpts of the Tulsa World, Nov. 2, 2013:
It’s been a year since Oklahomans were allowed to carry a
firearm openly. There have been no Main Street shootouts
and, frankly, seeing someone with a sidearm is not an every-
day occurrence.
Oklahomans were able to obtain a concealed carry license
beginning in 2008. In 2009, the state issued 35,962 licenses.
That record was eclipsed in 2012 when 39,872 licenses were
issued. There have been 21,184 issued so far this year.
The decision on open carry was controversial. But many of
the predictions of unwarranted and accidental shootings sim-
ply have not happened. Most Oklahomans with concealed or
open carry permits are responsible citizens.
Businesses are allowed to forbid weapons in their buildings
and state statute prohibits handguns, concealed or open, in
city, county, state or federal facilities.
According to a recent Gallup poll, 60 percent of Americans
polled said personal safety is the reason for having a firearm,
while 36 percent said they were used for hunting and 13 per-
cent said they were for recreation and sport. Only 5 percent
cited Second Amendment rights. We still find it a mystery as
to why anyone wants to openly carry a weapon.
It no doubt still makes some people uneasy to be in the
grocery store checkout line in front of someone openly pack-
ing heat.
Sand Springs Deputy Police Chief Mike Carter made a
good point in a recent Tulsa World story. “Part of your advan-
tage of being an armed person is the element of surprise,” he
said. He believes that openly carrying a weapons could make
someone a target in certain situations.
Nevertheless, the majority of the states have some form of
open carry law. Like Oklahoma, those who carry have been
responsible and reasonable.

The Poteau Pirates
clinched a playoff berth
with a win over Muldrow a
couple of weeks ago. Since
that hasn't happened for this
senior class, that achieve-
ment was a special one.
“It feels great to be in the
playoffs, especially since
we worked so hard,” senior
lineman Jesse Gollihare
said. “We've prepared our-
selves all year for this
moment.”
However, a home playoff
game was not secured until
last Thursday night's road
victory over the Tulsa
Rogers Ropers.
“The feeling was great
knowing we had the home
playoff game,” Gollihare
said. “We were all really
excited knowing that we
have the home-field advan-
tage.”
However, that was only
the beginning to an exciting
weekend. The Pirates knew
if the Sallisaw Black
Diamonds defeated the Fort
Gibson Tigers on Friday
night at Sallisaw's Perry F.
Lattimore Stadium, they
would get the No. 1 seed in
District 4A-4 for the upcom-
ing postseason. That's
exactly what happened.
Thus, the Pirates will have a
second home playoff game
next week should they
defeat the Cleveland Tigers,
who will be Poteau's play-
off opponent at 7:30 p.m.
Friday at Costner Stadium.
“I wasn't able to go [to
the Fort Gibson-Sallisaw
game], but I kept getting the
updates,” senior lineman
Michael Didway said. “It
felt amazing that we were
district champions, and get-
ting two home playoff
games. So, if we win, we'll
get another home playoff
win.”
While making the play-
offs and getting a home
postseason game, and pos-
sibly a second, is all good,
the Pirates still know there's
more work to be done.
“Now, we're looking
toward winning state, but
we have to take it day by
day,” Didway said. “We
need to keep getting better.
We're looking forward to
each week with each new
team we're going to play
and getting prepared for that
team.”
In fact, if the Pirates
should end the season with
a seven-game winning
streak, they're on a three-
game winning streak now,
they will hoist the gold ball
at the end of the Class 4A
state title game as state
champions.
“That's the best possible
thing that can happen,”
Gollihare said. “That would
be a great way for us to end
our senior year. It would be
a good building block for
the program, and something
for next year's football play-
ers to work on.”
At this time a season ago,
Didway was not playing
football, like he did as a
sophomore. However,
Didway, who was a mem-
ber of the Class 4A Regional
Tournament runners-up in
baseball last spring, felt the
passion to return to the grid-
iron.
“Just seeing how much
better the program has got-
ten over the last two years
made me want to come
back,” Didway said. “Coach
[Greg] Werner is a great
coach. I missed it [the sport
of football] a lot, being out
there.”
No matter how the rest of
the 2013 season goes, one
thing is for sure. The foun-
dation has been laid for
continued success for the
Pirates — one of which both
senior linemen are proud to
have been part.
“We're leaving them
something to be proud of,
and something to work
toward for the future,”
Gollihare said. “We'll be
giving them some goals.”
“This shows what you
can do when you put in all
the hard work and effort,
and all the long hours,”
Didway said. “It gives you
something to shoot for.”

WISTER — By the time Tuesday night's
high school basketball games ended
between the visiting Cameron teams and
the host Wister squads, both sides could
say that at least part of the night went
well.
The Lady Wildcats held off the Lady
Yellowjackets to post a 55-52 victory, but
the ’Jackets stung the ’Cats in the nightcap
to win 58-47.
Girls
Wister 55, Cameron 52
With the game tied at 44 entering the
final period, a 3-point basket and a two-
pointer by Wister's Caiti White gave the
Lady Wildcats (2-2) a 49-44 lead with 5:43
left to play. Wister never lost the lead, but
there were perhaps some nervous moments
down to the end.
Back-to-back baskets by Cameron's
Chelsi Wilson cut the deficit to 51-50 with
1:57 left to play, but that was as close as
the Lady Yellowjackets (0-3) got.
Back-to-back baskets by Clara Brown
and Jayla Roath put Wister ahead 55-50
with 51 seconds remaining in the game.
Cameron's Kacey McGee cut the Wister
lead to 55-52 with seven seconds left, but
at that point the nervousness may have
entered the picture.
Wister turned the ball over as Cameron's
Destiny Dunigan stole the ball at around
midcourt. She tried a desperation 3-pointer
with about four seconds left, but it missed
the mark — and the host team held on for
victory.
Trailing 9-5 midway through the open-
ing period, Cameron went on a 5-0 run,
capped by McGee's basket, to take a 10-9
lead with 2:50 left in the quarter.
From there, it was nip and tuck, with
Wister taking a 17-15 lead into the second
quarter on Roath's basket with six seconds
left in the first quarter.
The Lady Wildcats clawed their way to
as much as a 12-point lead in the second
period as a Roath hoop put Wister up 32-20
with 2:45 left before halftime.
However, the Lady Yellowjackets ended
the first half with a 9-4 run to cut Wister's
lead to 36-29 at halftime.
The Lady ’Jackets stormed out of the
locker room at halftime, scoring the first
six points of the third quarter. Wilson's free
throws cut Cameron's deficit to 36-35 with
5:27 left in the period.
By the time the third quarter ended,

Talihina cherishes A-6 title, perfect regular season
.. But Golden Tigers focusing on playoffs, Stratford Bulldogs
By David Seeley
PDN Sports Editor
The Talihina Golden Tigers football team wrapped up a
perfect regular season and a District A-6 title Friday night
with a 48-8 rout of the Gore Pirates. Make no mistake, the
Golden Tigers (10-0) are pleased with both goals being
accomplished.
However, that's all good, but now it's time to focus on
the Class A playoffs, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday
against the Stratford Bulldogs (6-4) at Doc Robinson
Stadium.
“We're glad we won the district championship and
wrapped up an undefeated season,” Talihina coach Kelly
Gravitt said. “We're really proud of them. We're healthy,
and we're proud of that. But we've forgotten all about that
now. We're just focusing on the Stratford Bulldogs.”
The ’Dogs most certainly have the Golden Tigers' atten-
tion.
“They're coming from a tough district,” Gravitt said.
“Last year, of the final eight, four were from that district.
Every team in District 5 is physical and fast at most posi-
tion. It's going to be game. They really don't remind me of
a lot of teams we played. I guess you could say that the
closest team they look like that we faced was Savanna, but
they're a lot more physical than Savanna. Everyone in
their district likes to play football. In some film we saw,
they ran the power-I like old school, control the line of
scrimmage and control the clock, but then their tailback
broke his foot. Their quarterback runs and throws well.
Their tailbacks are good. We're going to get their best
game because it's win, or lose and go home.”
Thus, the pregame practices will be very important for
the Golden Tigers.
“Our kids are going to have to be mentally sharp this
week,” Gravitt said. “We've installed our new game stuff.
We had two good practices [Tuesday and Wednesday].
Then, we'll play our mock game [today].”
So, executing the game plan to perfection will be a must
Friday night.
“We're going to have to play smashmouth football and
control the line of scrimmage,” Gravitt said. “We're going
to have to play assignment football on defense.”
By being district champions, Talihina will have a sec-
ond playoff game at “The Pit,” assuming they get past the
Bulldogs on Friday night.
“The kiddos love playing at 'The Pit,'” Gravitt said.
“We're pretty good here, and we haven't gotten beat here a
whole lot. They're going to be coming to our place to try
to take that away from us, and we're going to come out and
try to defend it [home field].”
For the most part, the Talihina starters have not had to
play a complete game. The most they played was about
three quarters against Antlers. In fact, most of the games
this season, it's been the reserves who have played the
entire second half. Thus, not only are the starters well
rested, but the reserves are game ready should they be
needed Friday night.
“That's one reason why we're healthy,” Gravitt said.
“We've been able to take care of business so that our back-
ups got a lot of good, fast reps. The same thing happened
in the Gore game. We were able to get our back-ups some
good reps. In doing so, [our starters] are healthy and ready
to roll.”

Gun season is fast approach-
ing, Nov. 23-Dec. 8. Don’t
forget your hunter education
training, which is needed
before you can hunt. Residents
who are age 10 or older must
complete hunter education
certification training.
Time is running out — and
you might need to do it online
to get it done in time to hunt.
Another last-minute thing you
might need is a replacement
hunter education card. Go to
www.wildlifedepartment.com.
It is important to note this
change to Oklahoma hunting
regulations:
Prospective hunters ages 9
and younger no longer are
eligible to take the test for
Hunter Education certifica-
tion;. These youngsters will be
able to buy an apprentice-des-
ignated hunting license.
Not only can you take care
of nearly all your licensing
needs online, the ODWC
Check Station Web Portal
allows you to check in your
deer, turkey or elk carcass.
The harvest limits for hunt-
ers this year are as follows:
The combined season limit
for deer archery, youth deer
gun, deer muzzleloader and
deer gun seasons is no more
than six deer per individual.
This limit may include no
more than two antlered deer.
Deer taken by a hunter par-
ticipating in holiday antlerless
deer gun season or controlled
hunts are not included in the
hunter’s combined season
limit. Deer taken during Jan.
1-15 count toward the 2013
bag limit.
The specific season limits
are as follows:
Gun limit — One antlered
and two antlerless deer; at
least one antlerless deer must
be harvested from Zones 2, 7
or 8. Archery limit — Six
deer, which may include no
more than two antlered deer.

My great nephew, Aiyden
Horn, caught a perch on a red
worm last week at my dad's
pond. Good job, Aiyden.

I’d like to also mention
Red Oak freshman Brenden
Patten. He killed a big 8-point-
er with his muzzleloader ear-
lier this month. This success
story follows his mom’s deer
kill she had about a month or
so ago — although hers was
taken with a much larger
weapon, her car, which caught
on fire and was a total loss
after the incident.
Have a great week!

Listen to what's being said, and
make choices based on what
you want. If you rely on your
wits, experience, perception and
skills, you'll come out ahead.
Dedication and hard work will
bring the success you've been
chasing. Make a commitment to
someone special.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- Hunker down and learn all
you can. What you observe will
spark your imagination, allow-
ing you to come up with bold
concepts that complement your
talents.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- Interesting alternatives
will arise at home. Don't let
someone pressure you into pass-
ing on an opportunity that you
really want to pursue. Your heart
will lead you in the right direc-
tion.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- Offer an unusual solution at
work, and you will gain respect.
Expect someone's insecurity to
cause friction. Handle this per-
son with care.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Don't let someone dictate your
options. You have to be your own
boss and make the decisions that
best suit your needs. If you want
to remain emotionally sound,
you need to make a change.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
Take on a challenge and show
everyone how adaptable and
knowledgeable you are. Your
ideas will spark personal and
professional interest in you.
Partnerships are favored.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) --
You'll have trouble making up
your mind between work and
getting to know an interesting
acquaintance better. Tread care-
fully, assume nothing and don't
step on anyone's toes.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --
Fix up your place and prepare
to do a little entertaining. Time
with friends and family will
bring out the best in you and will
encourage interesting offers that
could brighten your day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) --
Before someone forces you in a
direction that leaves you feeling
uncertain, you need to initiate
change. Taking control will give
you the upper hand and leave
you some wiggle room to reach
your goals.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) --
Volatile emotions will surface
if you think someone is taking
advantage of you. Put more em-
phasis on the projects you are
working on and less on the de-
mands that someone is making.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Tread
carefully. Not everyone will
agree with the choices you make.
Get as much accomplished as
possible before you decide to
share what you are doing.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --
Interacting with others will lead
to plenty of give-and-take, with
a positive plan ultimately result-
ing. Romance should be on your
mind, and a celebration should
be planned.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Problems at home or in a per-
sonal relationship can be ex-
pected. Listen to any complaints
being made, but don't give in to
unrealistic demands. Keep a low
profle.

THE BIG APPLE VS THE
CRAB APPLE
When my old friend Rob calls
us from New York City, he always
asks, "But what do you do out
there?" As if everyone who doesn't
live in Manhattan lives on a farm
in the middle of fyover country
where you have to pump your wa-
ter by hand and use an outhouse.
Living in a small town would be
his worst nightmare, because what
he really means by "What do you
do out there?" is "Where do you
shop?"
"Doing something," to me,
Today is the 318th day of 2013
and the 54th day of autumn.
TODAY'S HISTORY: In 1851,
the frst American edition of Her-
man Melville's "Moby-Dick" was
published.
In 1889, New York World report-
er Nellie Bly set out to travel around
the world in less than 80 days, in-
spired by Jules Verne. It took her 72
days.
In 1910, the frst airplane takeoff
from the deck of a ship occurred near
Hampton Roads, Va.
In 1995, a budget impasse in Con-
gress led to a partial government shut-
down.
In 2008, the frst G-20 economic
summit began in Washington, D.C.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAYS: Robert
Fulton (1765-1815), inventor; Claude
Monet (1840-1926), painter; Aaron
Copland (1900-1990), composer;
Joseph McCarthy (1908-1957), poli-
tician; Ed White (1930-1967), astro-
naut; Wendy Carlos (1939- ), compos-
er; P.J. O'Rourke (1947- ), journalist/
author; Prince Charles (1948- ),
Prince of Wales; Condoleezza Rice
(1954- ), former secretary of state;
Yanni (1954- ), musician; Curt
Schilling (1966- ), baseball player;
Josh Duhamel (1972- ), actor; Betsy
Brandt (1976- ), actress.
TODAY'S FACT: The Dow
Jones Industrial Average is not the
actual average price of its compo-
nent stocks, but a weighted average
that compensates for the effects of
stock splits and other adjustments.
TODAY'S SPORTS: In 1970, a
plane carrying 37 Marshall Univer-
sity football players, as well as the
means mowing the lawn, raking the
leaves, stacking the wood, tending
the garden, fxing the house, clean-
ing the gutters, getting the storm
windows ready, jawing with the
neighbors about how strange the
weather has been. To Rob it means
buying things.
While Rob has tens of thou-
sands more neighbors than I do,
he doesn't know any of them and
you wouldn't need your toes to
count his friends. He lives in a tiny,
wildly expensive apartment in an
elevator building with a doorman.
His cleaning person comes in ev-
ery Tuesday. His only household
chore is writing a check for the
rent once a month. When he's not
working, he's shopping. His clos-
ets are full of expensive suits and
ties from fancy haberdashers. He
would be appalled by the 10-year-
old dark suit from J.C. Penney that
I wear to weddings and funerals.
Everything else I own comes from
what Sue calls "The Gutter Clean-
ing Collection."
"What is there to do?" I answer
him. "Plenty. We go into town
and watch them put the mail in
the boxes. 'Course we'd have to
get there before 10. What time
do you get up nowadays? Around
noon? They're having a sale on
sump pumps down at the Feed and
Seed, and we don't want to miss
that. Doug's having his septic sys-
tem pumped on Saturday. That'll
be something to see. Then we all
stand around and wait for the last-
est news from New York on the
noon stage." I could almost hear
him roll his eyes.
"Well, what did you do last
night?" I asked him.
"Stayed home and watched
TV."
"And like 85 percent of Amer-
ica, so did we," I said. "The other
15 percent were on Facebook. You
want to know the difference be-
tween watching TV at our house
and watching TV in your apart-
ment?"
"What?"
"Thirty-fve hundred dollars a
month, plus utilities. If you were
going to Broadway musicals ev-
ery night, and eating at the hottest
restaurants and then nightclubbing
with B-list celebrities, I could see
living in Manhattan. But if you're
staying home most nights watch-
ing TV, you could do that any-
where. Sure, you make Manhattan
money, but you'll spend more than
you make.
"On my way to work in Man-
hattan," I continued, "I would
walk past shops that sold $10,000
watches, shops that sold $600
shoes, shops that sold $20,000
