Ice muddles schedules; more expected
Forecast: cold; shelters ready
By Kim Ross PDN Editor Feezing rain, sleet, ice and snow are still in the mix today. According to the National Weather Service, most of Oklahoma and Arkansas will remain under an ice storm warning until 6 p.m. Temperatures aren’t expected to warm until the end of next week. Michael Davidson, LeFlore County emergency management director said most of the winter precipitation will pass with (See STORM, page 2)
Schools close
By Kim Ross PDN Editor As Old Man Winter made his way through the county leaving is his wake a frozen path, most schools closed on Thursday. All but three county schools were closed Thursday morning in preparation for the ice storm scheduled to arrive before noon. The only school that remained open after the storm began was Cameron. School employees said the roads were being driven by administration to determine they remained clear until school let out. Many of the schools have rural bus routes that make travel more difficult in icy weather, resulting in the decision to close schools before the storm arrived, according to school personnel. Poteau, which already was scheduled to be closed so students could attend the state title football game, will remain closed Friday. The game has been rescheduled for Dec. 14.
Roads proved to be hazardous early Thursday afternoon. The driver of this vehicle spun out in the roadway and into the ditch near Trayce Street and West Boulevard. The occupants ended up phoning for help to get the truck unstuck. Below, ice began accumulating on branches, utility lines and other fixtures. These images were taken near Cameron.

Weekend events status unsettled
By Kim Ross PDN Editor The impact of an ice storm across LeFlore County has yet to impact many festivities planned for Saturday. According to parade organizers in Poteau and Heavener, the Christmas parades set for the weekend are still a go. Poteau Chamber of Commerce personnel said Thursday that unless the roads are icy or it is raining at the time of the parade the show will go on at 6 p.m.. The Chamber reported more than 40 entries in this year’s parade and said it is expected to be one of the biggest in years. The Heavener parade also is scheduled to take to the streets at 2 p.m. The two (See EVENTS, page 2)

Governor appoints new CASC regent
Jahni S. Tapley of Idabel has been appointed to serve as a member of the Carl Albert State College Board of Regents. The seven-year appointment of Tapley was made by Gov. Mary Fallin to replace Jenna McBee on the board. McBee’s appointment last summer to serve as a special district judge led to the Oklahoma Supreme Court’s ruling that McBee could not serve in both capacities. Tapley is a 2000 Carl Albert State College graduate where she attended on a softball scholarship, a 2003 graduate of Oklahoma State (See TAPLEY, page 2)

Ford said that the TFLC program is a grant-driven program through the LeFlore County Youth Services, and is in its fourth year of the five-year grant. Ford also said that e-cigarettes, while they don’t have tobacco in them, do have nicotine and can still cause physical harm. PDN photo by David Seeley

More young people trying e-cigarettes
New data on tobacco use among Oklahoma youths indicate a significant number are trying electronic cigarettes. Research shows that youths who are exposed to tobacco use are more likely to become regular tobacco users and public health officials are concerned the same will be true of e-cigarettes and vapor products. Oklahoma has no state law prohibiting the sale of ecigarettes and vapor products to youth, unlike laws that restrict youth access to other tobacco products. Data from the 2013 Oklahoma Youth Tobacco Survey show that 7.8 percent of Oklahoma high school students and 2.7 percent of Oklahoma middle school students who responded to the survey had used an ecigarette in the past 30 days. Of those who responded, 17.9 percent of high school students and 6.6 percent of middle school students reported ever using an e-cigarette. The 2013 survey is the first year that the OYTS has included a question about ecigarette use. Nationally, e-cigarette use among middle and high school students nearly doubled from 2011 to 2012. Data from the 2012 National Youth Tobacco Survey show that electronic cigarette use increased among middle school students from 0.6 percent in 2011 to 1.1 percent in 2012 and among high school students from 1.5 percent to 2.8 percent. “The use of vapor products among youth is concerning, as nicotine is a highly addictive substance that may negatively affect the developing brain,” said State Health Commissioner Terry Cline.

Editorial Roundup
With Hobby Lobby case, court has chance to defend religious liberty
Editorial excerpts from The Oklahoman, Dec. 3, 2013: If Hobby Lobby persuades U.S. Supreme Court justices that it shouldn’t have to pay for some forms of birth control because it would violate religious principles, well, the end would be near in terms of women’s health care! So say liberals who are wringing their hands over the prospect of Hobby Lobby winning its case. One of them is U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who helped ramrod to passage the Affordable Care Act, a portion of which requires companies to provide insurance covering birth control. “When the Supreme Court hears this case, the choice must be clear,” Pelosi said last week after the high court agreed to take on cases brought by Hobby Lobby and a Pennsylvania furniture company. “Health care decisions should be made by a woman and her doctor, not by her boss, by insurance companies or by Washington politicians.” U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., said, “Allowing a woman’s boss to call the shots about her access to birth control should be inconceivable to all Americans in this day and age.” And yet neither woman has a problem with the nation’s boss, President Barack Obama, calling the shots by ordering Americans, through Obamacare, to enroll in insurance plans they don’t want or don’t need. Pelosi, Murray and other liberals insist that women be able to have any and all options for birth control — free, of course — while Obamacare options are almost nil. The disconnect is remarkable. Hobby Lobby and several other for-profit companies began this fight in 2012 after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a mandate requiring faith-affiliated institutions such as hospitals and charities to offer free contraception and abortifacients as part of health insurance coverage. After considerable blowback, the administration tweaked the rule to make insurance companies, not the religious employers, offer free contraception. Self-insured companies such as Hobby Lobby were still out of luck, though, and so they went to court. This summer the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver said Hobby Lobby could sue over the mandate, rejecting the administration’s argument that for-profits couldn’t claim it violates their constitutionally protected religious freedoms. CEO David Green understandably feels that his family is being forced to choose between following the law or following its religious beliefs, which are part and parcel to the management of Hobby Lobby. As we have noted in the past, the Green family actively supports Christian ministries, closes its stores on Sundays and has full-time chaplains on staff to minister to employees. And it’s worth mentioning that the company doesn’t object to all the contraceptives covered by the mandate. Its beef is with those that prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg, such as the morning-after pill. “This legal challenge has always remained about one thing and one thing only: the right of our family business to live out our sincere and deeply held religious convictions as guaranteed by the law and the Constitution,” Green said last week. Liberal groups such as Planned Parenthood worry that if Hobby Lobby wins, it could lead company execs to cite personal beliefs in choosing not to cover other things such as vaccines or surgeries. These are Chicken Little arguments. The sky wouldn’t fall if the Supreme Court found in Hobby Lobby’s favor. Instead, it would simply be a victory against this administration’s attack on religious liberty.

Why can’t Congress aim higher
Congressional budget negotiators are moving to meet a Dec. 13 deadline to produce, well, something. For weeks, we’ve been told to keep expectations low. There’ll be no “grand bargain,” negotiators say. Commentators believe that even the narrowest agreement will be a signal achievement. So here’s my question: Doesn’t that seem like an awfully low bar to you? Yes, I know. The atmosphere on Capitol Hill is poisonous. The two parties — even the various factions within the parties — can barely stand to be in a room with each other. Expecting a sizable budget accomplishment from Congress right now is like expecting water from a rock. It would take a miracle. Yet there are consequences to not producing an agreement capable of clarifying fiscal affairs. Right now, government agencies cannot plan ahead; they can’t consider longterm projects; they have trouble with staffing; they can’t set priorities; they’re forced to fund programs that have outlived their usefulness and cannot fund programs they know are necessary. And that’s just the federal bureaucracy. Contractors and people who depend on federal spending can’t plan, either. Our economy can’t achieve liftoff, and millions of ordinary Americans remain mired by its slow growth. Washington faces tough choices about spending, taxes, and entitlements, and Congress isn’t making them. Things are not wholly bleak. Republican Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the lead House negotiator, and Democrat Patty Murray of Washington, who heads up the Senate team, have been working at least to address the sequester. As you’ll recall, this is the draconian set of across-the-board budget cuts put in place in 2011. At first, many agencies were able to defer maintenance, spend money they’d squirreled away, and cut staff by attrition. This next year will be much tougher: agencies are out of easy options, and defense spending faces an immense, $21 billion cut. That will be felt in every congressional district in the country, given how adept the Defense Department has been at spreading its largesse around. Not surprisingly, pressure is coming from both sides of the aisle to ease the impact. The sequester is a cleaver, cutting good and bad government spending without rhyme or reason. If congressional negotiators can take a smarter approach, that’s all to the good. But if they’re going to do that, shouldn’t they address the real problems? The country needs gradual deficit reduction that avoids disrupting the economy or

harming the vulnerable. It needs reforms to Social Security and Medicare that put them on a solid footing for decades to come. These are daunting challenges, but Congress’s toolbox is hardly empty. It could limit itemized tax deductions, increase Medicare premiums for the well-to-do, place caps on spending, shave federal employee benefits to bring them in line with the private sector, increase government fees, sell public assets, put more of the wireless spectrum up for bid, increase the Social Security contributions of higherincome earners, change the consumer price index.... There are literally scores of possibilities, none of them easy, but all of them offering adroit negotiators the chance to craft a long-term solution to problems that have beset Capitol Hill for years and held economic growth far below its potential. By addressing these issues head on, Congress could move beyond the political machinations that have deeply frustrated so many Americans, and play a constructive role in the economy: promoting growth by investment in infrastructure and basic research, providing incentives for entrepreneurship and job creation. It could create a responsible framework for reducing spending as the economy grows. It could reform a tax code that everyone agrees is broken. At some point, Congress will have to put the federal budget on “a sustainable path for the long term,” in the words of the CBO. So long as it does not, the economic consequences hurt everyone. Congressional leaders seem blissfully unconcerned about this and aim only for low-hanging fruit, but Americans know that Congress can and should do better, and are rightly tired of careening from crisis to crisis. As members of Congress continue to make politically attractive suggestions that don’t come close to achieving a lasting solution, let’s urge them to get real. It’s time for Congress to go big.

Responsible adults
 I have tried to teach my kids how a “responsible adult” behaves. When you turn 18, you become a legal adult. But that doesn’t mean that you are a responsible adult. There are people who like to get on Facebook and comment on other peoples pictures and statuses. I’ve seen people who have made rude comments towards children. That is unthinkable to me. Sayings that I heard growing up come to mind, like “mind your own business,” “if you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all” and “pick on someone your own size.” These should be utilized by a responsible adult. I have witnessed people who are way old enough to know that drugs, alcohol or gambling are not helping them nor their families. But yet they still spend their time and money on it instead of investing in their families futures. A responsible adult would do what they had to keep their family thriving. I have seen and heard adults who not only allow their children to pass judgment on people, snob their peers or make fun of people but also join in. There is only one judge. The rest of the people who do it are only sealing their fate with the one and only. Those people have no right. We all have faults. And we all put our pants on one leg at a time so no one is better than the next. When you stop looking down your nose, you can see what a person is truly like. And putting people down only shows how insecure you are as a person. When an “adult” allows their children to act like that, it shows what type of a “responsible adult” you truly are. I myself have allowed my past to hold me down and make decisions without thinking. It is a hard to grow up and make deci-

sions based on what’s the right thing to do not what’s the fastest and easiest way out of the situation. But there comes a time when you have to. A time when a person has to get help, get over the past and make decisions that ensure your future. A time when you become a responsible adult. So what exactly is a responsible adult you ask? It is someone who puts life into perspective. Someone who has chosen their desired path and works toward that path with every fiber of their being. It is someone who puts others needs before their own on a daily basis. It is someone who know what sacrifice is and would do things the same way if given the chance. Someone who takes responsibility for their own actions.It is someone who knows what the dark is like but chooses to live in the light. I challenge each of you to remember this in each and every decision that you make for the next couple of weeks. Remember how a responsible adult would act. Take into consideration other people’s feelings and make the responsible decision. Mandy Clinton is a graduate of Heavener High School and a wife and mother of four children.

Weather cancels remaining basketball games for week
By David Seeley PDN Sports Editor Not only were the high school football playoffs affected by this week's icy weather, so, too, was the hoop schedule. The rest of the week's slate of basketball games have been canceled or postponed due to inclement weather conditions. The Poteau Lady Pirates will have to wait until next week to open their season as this week's Southeast Oklahoma Shootout at McAlester's Southeast Expo Center was postponed and may not be rescheduled. They will open their season next week in the Wilburton Tournament. The Spiro High School basketball teams were weathered out of their openers Thursday night at Sequoyah-Tahlequah. Spiro boys coach Dustin Gist said the games have not been rescheduled, and there may not be an open date available to do so. However, he said the games will try to be rescheduled. Cameron's back-to-back home games Thursday night with Pocola and tonight with Panama have been rescheduled due to the icy conditions. The Pocola games will be at 6:30 and 8 p.m. Jan. 3, 2014, while the Panama games will be the same times on Feb. 10, 2014. The Carl Albert State College home games Thursday night against Seminole State were canceled. CASC men's coach/ athletic director Mike St. John said he would like to get them rescheduled for this weekend, but at this time the contests have not been rescheduled.

Dunlap Fieldhouse. Despite Blagg-Tidwell's 30-point effort, the Bulldogs lost to the Mustangs. PDN photo by David Seeley PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — As time wound down in the Trail Blazers' victory over the Oklahoma City, LaMarcus Aldridge was showered with shouts of "MVP! MVP!" from the Portland fans. Aldridge had a seasonhigh 38 points and added 13 rebounds in the Blazers' 111-104 win Wednesday night that snapped the Thunder's eight-game winning streak. It was his ninth doubledouble and 15th game with at least 20 points this season. He made a career-high 17 field goals. "Just surreal. It was humbling to have that moment here," Aldridge said of the crowd's reaction. "I've been here so long and I've had very few of those type of chants here. So that was fun. I thought that made the night complete for me." The victory gives the surprising Blazers a 16-3 record this season, best in the Western Conference and second only to Indiana overall. Portland has won 14 of its last 15 games, a stretch that includes an 11-game winning streak. Nicolas Batum's 3-pointer with 29.9 seconds to go all but sealed it for Portland, which had lost seven straight against Oklahoma City. The Thunder led by as many as 12 points in the first half, but Aldridge led a third-quarter rally and Portland built a 91-84 lead on consecutive 3-pointers from Dorell Wright and Damian Lillard with 7:58 left. Russell Westbrook's 3-pointer pulled the Thunder within 95-94 before Reggie Jackson's two free throws gave them a short-lived lead with 5:34 to go. Aldridge hit a lay-up and a jumper to make it 105-100 for the Blazers. Durant and Westbrook narrowed it again with consecutive baskets, but Batum's 3-pointer made it 108-104 before Durant missed a 3 on the other end. The Blazers made free throws for the final margin. Durant finished with 33 for the Thunder, who were playing the second game of a back-to-back after defeating Sacramento 97-95 Tuesday night. Westbrook (See THUNDER, Page 6)
Arkoma teams beat Whitesboro to make Blue Bracket title games
Rest of EOSC Classic canceled this week due to inclement weather
By David Seeley PDN Sports Editor WILBURTON — A pair of LeFlore County basketball schools, Arkoma and Whitesboro, met each other on the hardwood Wednesday in the Eastern Oklahoma State College Classic at EOSC's Claud C. Dunlap Fieldhouse. It was an Arkoma sweep. The Mustangs edged the Bulldogs 48-45 and the Lady Mustangs were too much for the Lady Bulldogs in a 53-31 victory in championship semifinals in the Blue Bracket. However, due to the inclement weather conditions the rest of this week, the rest of the EOSC Classic — including Thursday's games in Gold Bracket action involving the Howe and Leflore teams — has been canceled and will be rescheduled at a later date. In the boys game, the Mustangs (2-0) had an 11-point lead at 28-17 at halftime thanks to outscoring the ’Dogs (5-2) in each of the first two periods — 18-10 in the first quarter and 10-7 in the second period. After Arkoma's Tanner Sweeten put his team up 13 points at 30-17 with 7:45 left in the third quarter, the Bulldogs went on a 7-0 run, capped by Luca Marinoni's conventional three-point play, to cut the deficit to 30-24 with 5:30 left in the period. Arkoma took a 32-26 lead into the final quarter. Back-to-back baskets by Whitesboro's Blake BlaggTidwell cut Arkoma's lead to 32-30 with 6:32 left to play in the game. His basket with 4:09 remaining tied the game at 36. However, the Mustangs responded with a 3-point basket by Demetric Johnson and a conventional threepoint play by Josh Marion put Arkoma ahead for good at 44-38 with 1:42 left to play. Sweeten led Arkoma with 15 points, followed by Johnson with nine points, Marion and Jerry Anderson with eight points each, Ethann Gates with six points and Aaron Parsons with two points. In defeat, Blagg-Tidwell led Whitesboro with a game-high 30 points, followed by Marinoni with six points, Fabian Peter with four points, Dakota Farris with three points and Colton Van Horn with two points. In the girls contest, the Lady Mustangs (2-0) gave up the game's first six points to the Lady Bulldogs (3-4), then went on a 9-0 run to close the opening period to take a 9-6 lead heading into the second quarter. Whitesboro's Lexey Branscum hit a basket to begin the second period to cut her team's deficit to 9-8 (See CLASSIC, Page 6)

Heavener girls reach title game of Gary Ford Invitational
Weather reschedules tournament games for HHS teams; Heavener's schedule revised
HARTFORD, Ark. — The Heavener Lady Wolves reached the title game of the Gary Ford Invitational on Wednesday night with a 68-23 rout of the host team from Hartford. The rest of the tournament action for the week for both the Wolves and Lady Wolves have been rescheduled due to the inclement weather. The Lady Wolves' title game will take place at noon Dec. 14 instead of this Saturday. The final game for the Wolves in the event will take place at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Also, the Heavener schedule has been revised due to football playoffs of their opponents. The road games at Idabel that were scheduled for Dec. 21 will take place at 6:30 and 8 p.m. next Friday. The road games at Talihina that were scheduled for tonight will take place at 6:30 and 8 p.m. Dec. 20 unless the Golden Tigers make it to the Class A state title game — which would be the following day. The Lady Wolves (2-0) jumped out to a 24-8 lead after a period and never looked back. To put an exclamation mark on the win, Heavener outscored Hartford 20-0 in the third quarter for a 60-21 lead going into the final period. Three players hit for double figures to lead Heavener as Jodie Hill scored 16 points, Kacee Manley 14 points and Lakotah Vickers with 11. Azure Watkins scored seven points, followed by Erika Lemay with six points, Reagan Alexander with five points and Kelsey Janway with two points.

with 7:09 left before halftime. That would be as close as the Lady Bulldogs got. Arkoma went on a 14-0 run, capped by a 3-pointer by Rosa Orpo, to take a 23-10 lead with 1:19 remaining in the first half. A basket by Shania McCosky ended Whitesboro's 5:50 scoring drought to cut the deficit to 23-10 with 1:19 remaining before halftime. Arkoma took a 27-10 lead at the break. Another trey by Orpo with 24 seconds left in the third quarter put Arkoma up 24 points at 41-17 entering the final period. Orpo led all scorers with a game-high 20 points for Arkoma, followed by Abby Gragg, Shaylea Whisenhunt and Kelsi Johnson each with eight points, Julia Anderson and Rose Niklander with two points each and a free throw apiece from Kayce King, Jasmin Roberts and Tiera Brumfield. In defeat, Hope Sisemore led Whitesboro with eight points, followed by Breanna Gibson with five points, Branscum and McCosky each with four points, Bailee McConnell with three points, Kim Craig, Lauren Harper and Abigail Phillips each with two points and a free throw from Maecie Smith.
HARTSHORNE — The Wister Lady Wildcats bounced back from Tuesday night's loss to Antlers to beat the Tushka Lady Tigers 35-29 in the consolation semifinals of the Pick and Shovel Classic.

No. 1 Michigan State gets beat up and beat by North Carolina
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State got manhandled and outhustled by North Carolina. And, the Spartans' school-record, threeweek run as the No. 1 team in The Associated Press college basketball poll ended with a thud. The Tar Heels had five scorers in double figures and more players going after loose balls and rebounds in a 79-65 win over Michigan State on its home court Wednesday night. "We looked like a softer team," Spartans coach Tom Izzo said. "That solely falls on me, nobody else." Despite playing in a highly anticipated game in front of fired-up fans, Michigan State (7-1) looked listless early and couldn't recover. The Tar Heels scored the first six points of the game and led 16-4 while holding the Spartans to 1-for-7 shooting with four turnovers. "They came out and hit us in the mouth first," Michigan State guard Gary Harris said. "We never even got the lead. They came in with a lot of energy and got the win." The Spartans started the season ranked No. 2 and moved to the top spot by beating then-No. 1 Kentucky, becoming just the third top-ranked team in program history. They had one lackluster win over Columbia after beating the Wildcats, then were relatively impressive in the previous five games. Behind the scenes, though, Izzo was worried that his team wouldn't fare well against North Carolina. Harris has been slowed by an ankle injury, Adreian Payne is playing with a foot ailment and Matt Costello might have mononucleosis. "We played how we practiced," Izzo said. The Tar Heels, meanwhile, were forced to watch more film from their loss to UAB — which followed a win over then-No. 3 Louisville — the night before they played at Michigan State because coach Roy Williams still had some teaching points he wanted to make. "I told them at that point, the UAB game was over," Williams said. North Carolina (5-2) made the most of its opportunity to flash its potential, dominating a team that hadn't lost at home to an unranked, nonconference opponent for more than a decade. "They came off a loss and they looked hungrier," Izzo said. "We came off all the hype and we looked not as hungry." Kennedy Meeks scored 15 points, Brice Johnson had 14 off the bench, Marcus Paige and Nate Britt added 13 apiece while J.P. Tokoto had 12 points and a career-high 10 rebounds for the Tar Heels. "I truly believe after the Louisville win, our mentality after that was, 'Birmingham is just going to be an automatic win. Just because we're North Carolina,'" Tokoto said. "We can't have that mentality — and kind of learned that Sunday night. "We came here, were ready to play, intensity level was up, and we got results." And, the Spartans weren't ready and didn't respond later in the game when it was clear they had to play with more energy and passion to compete. "One of the more disappointing performances of my career here," Izzo said. "From the jump ball, they kind of took it to us." The Tar Heels took control from the start, never trailed and used a 12-1 run to take a 65-52 lead with 6:02 left. "Michigan State did not want it that much more than we did," North Carolina coach Roy Williams said. Izzo agreed. "We looked soft," he lamented. North Carolina outrebounded the Spartans by 11, leading to 19 secondchance points. The Tar Heels turned 14 of Michigan State's turnovers into 19 points and held the Spartans to 36 percent shooting.
THUNDER
had 21 points. "He was shooting turnarounds from almost the 3-point line over the top of our bigs and knocking them down," Durant said of Aldridge. "That's what great players do, they come through in the clutch and make shots." Batum and Lillard added 14 points apiece for the Blazers, who were coming off a 106-102 victory over Indiana on Monday. Portland is 8-1 at home. Aldridge scored 16 of his points in the third quarter, when the Blazers outscored the Thunder 35-21. "I don't know if I have the words, to be honest," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said of Aldridge's night. "Offensively, obviously he can score. But I liked his toughness, I liked his leadership, I liked his competitive fire. As much as he played very well, it was a lot of the intangibles that I really appreciated from him tonight." Wright's bank jumper evened the game at 27 to start the second quarter. It was close throughout the half, with Portland's Batum on Durant much of the time. Durant took off on a fast break for a dunk and added a free throw to give the Thunder a 55-47 lead, their biggest of the game to that point. Westbrook attempted a 3-pointer and the refs called a foul on Portland's Wesley Matthews, prompting an angry reaction from Stotts, who was given a technical, and the Thunder finished the half on a 9-0 for a 59-48 advantage. Durant led all scorers in the half with 17 points. One bright spot for the Blazers was center Robin Lopez, who had 12 points and five rebounds in the first half. Acquired by the Blazers from New Orleans in a three-team off-season trade, Lopez finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Sooners as spoilers? Don't talk about it with OU
NORMAN (AP) — Want to get an Oklahoma football player riled up? Suggest the Sooners are playing spoilers Saturday morning against Oklahoma State. No. 18 OU (9-2, 6-2 Big 12) owns a lopsided 82-18-7 advantage in the Bedlam series and the Sooners have beaten No. 6 OSU (10-1, 7-1) in nine of the 10 last years, even as OSU's program has risen considerably in national stature during that time. But this year, OU lost to Texas and Baylor, while OSU beat both those teams. An OSU win in Stillwater would clinch a share of the conference title (along with the Baylor-Texas winner) and send the Cowboys to a Bowl Championship Series game for the second time in three seasons. Last weekend's Big 12 results — Baylor beating TCU and Texas beating Texas Tech — mean the best OU can hope for Saturday is to spoil the Cowboys' dreams and finish in a three-way tie for second in the league race. Don't tell that to OU center Gabe Ikard, who initially took offense when asked the spoiler question this week. "The fact that you call us the spoiler against Oklahoma State, I'm not even going to answer that," Ikard said, rolling his eyes. "It's one of those things, it's one of the great rivalries in college football. We all know traditionally the numbers and how it's been lopsided, but they played better football than us this year, there's no doubt, and (they're) a team that should be undefeated. I don't think that's a stretch in reality at all. "They should be undefeated, maybe in the top two or three, so we're just happy for the opportunity to go to Stillwater and be able to play a great game and a great atmosphere. . But we don't see ourselves as an underdog in this game. Obviously we realize they're ranked higher than us and they're favored when it comes to Vegas and all that stuff, but we're still Oklahoma and we've done a lot of special things around here for a long time." OU safety Gabe Lynn also took issue with the "spoiler" terminology. "We're OU and they're OSU, so I wouldn't call it a spoiler role," Lynn said. "They're a good team and they're having a great season. We always want to win that game. They're just another good team we have to beat." The Sooners obviously are not accustomed to being in such a spot late in the season, one where they can't win a conference title but can prevent another team from doing so. It's been 2009 since OU played the Cowboys without a Big 12 title at stake. OU coach Bob Stoops acknowledged that reality when asked if he'd rather be where OSU is at this week or rather enjoy the Sooners' traditional dominance of the series. "Well, over the last many years, I'd rather have the big picture, but this week, I'd rather be where they're at," Stoops said. "There's no denying that. So in the end, sure, we've done our deal, but today is today and that's all I can think about is what we want to do this week."

Northern Illinois tries to focus on only MAC title game against Bowling Green
DETROIT (AP) — No. 16 Northern Illinois is trying to focus only on the Mid-American Conference championship game. That might not be easy. If the Huskies beat Bowling Green tonight in Detroit, they will likely earn a second straight Bowl Championship Series bowl bid. Northern Illinois coach Rod Carey said the Falcons are probably better in all three phases of the game than any opponent his team has faced this season. Bowling Green will need to be really good on offense, defense and special teams to do enough to beat Huskies quarterback Jordan Lynch. The Heisman Trophy candidate has accounted for 4,212 yards and 43 touchdowns this season. Lynch is 25-2 as a Northern Illinois starting quarterback and hasn't lost a MAC game. Here are four things to watch when the Huskies (12-0, 8-0 MAC) face the Falcons (9-3, 7-1) at Ford Field: High Stakes: Northern Illinois' most difficult task might be to avoid looking ahead to a probable invitation to play in the Fiesta Bowl, one of three BCS bowls expected to send a representative to the Motor City to scout the Huskies. Northern Illinois, No. 14 in the BCS standings, can lock up a BCS bid by finishing in the top 12 or by staying in the top 16 and ahead of an automatic qualifying conference champion. Coach Rod Carey has done everything he can to convince his players to pay attention to the immediate task. "There's only one game we have guaranteed to us right now — and that's the MAC championship," Carey said. Heisman Hopes: A case can be made that Lynch is the most outstanding player in college football. The senior QB has scored 258 points, ranking second in the nation; run for 1,755 yards and 20 touchdowns, ranking third in each category; and accounted for 4,212 yards of total offense, ranking fourth. "He's an incredible talent," Bowling Green coach Dave Clawson said. "He's very physical. He doesn't wear down. He's an All-American running back and an AllAmerican quarterback wrapped up into one player." X-Factor: Beyond slowing down Lynch, Bowling Green can boost its chances at upsetting the Huskies by handing off the ball to running back Travis Greene to control the clock. The converted wide receiver has run for 1,422 yards — 23 yards away from breaking the single-season school record — at an average of 6-plus yards per carry and has scored 10 times on the ground. The Falcons haven't beaten a ranked team since 2008, when they defeated No. 25 Pittsburgh, and their last win over a top 15 team was a decade ago against then-No. 12 Northern Illinois. They're Streaking: Northern Illinois has won 25 straight MAC games, the nation's longest active conference winning streak, since losing its 2011 league opener at Central Michigan. The Huskies are playing in their fourth straight MAC title game, a match-up they're expected to win. "Anytime you're in a championship game there is pressure," Carey said. "But I don't why pressure is a bad thing. I know there are a lot of teams that would love to be in this situation, and would beg for it."
Delaplank wins Week 13 Pigskin Picks Contest; this week's contest will only have nine games
Bill Deleplank was the Week 13 winner of the Poteau Daily News’ Pigskin Picks Contest. Deleplank successfully picked nine out of 10 winners and had the exact score on the tiebreaker to win. For those contestants who entered this week's contest, since the Poteau and Talihina games were canceled due to inclement weather, they will not be used in this week's contest. Thus, there will be nine games in this week's contest.

I hope y'all had a happy Thanksgiving; a trip to 'Billy Deer Camp'
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving day holiday. We did at “The Adams' Family Compound.” I went to Walmart that night for its Black Friday sale, and it was crazy. Everybody was on edge. I was just going in with everybody, having fun and trying to “lighten” the mood, and some woman didn't like me too much. She started to come after me, but they talked her out of it. I dodged a bullet, and I was spared the embarrassment of being beaten up by a woman in front of Walmart. I still had fun, but I don't think I'll go back. Now, if it was BassPro Shop, that would be different. Thanksgiving week got started on the Saturday before when my son, Jacques, and I went hunting at Tater Ridge out at the Dog Creek Community at the Billy family cabin. Stephen, Keaton and Asher Billy were our hosts, and Vance Smedley was there, too. We pulled up to the newly-built cabin, and right away I knew I would like this year's “deer camp.” Keaton jumps out of their truck with a .22-caliber rifle and got a squirrel. Within the next hour, he has that dude skinned and fried, and I'm having fresh fried squirrel with Barbara Billy's famous potato soup she sent with us. I followed it up with her homemade cinnamon rolls for dessert. After dinner, we all watched college football — and, yes, they have Dish out there. It was like no other deer camp I've ever been to. It was so nice, and it was all I could do to leave. We got up at 4 a.m., and

made the boys scrambled eggs and sausage with biscuits and gravy. By 5:30 a.m., we were all in the woods waiting for daylight. We saw all kind of deer — all does, however, with no bucks. We heard a couple of shots, and we went back to the cabin. Keaton killed a 9-pointer weighing 127 pounds, and Stephen got an 8-pointer weighing 119 pounds. It was indeed a great morning. I fired up my ol' trusty crock pot with 10 pounds of Okie burgers for the Oklahoma-Kansas State game, which kicked off at 11 a.m. that morning. Vance ate seven Okie burgers — he's a machine! After we all got a nap, we went back into the woods for our afternoon hunt. The only thing that could have made this better was if there would have been a lake full of fish near by. Then, I would never leave. It was really a great camp. Although Jacques didn't get a deer, we sure saw a bunch of game, and we can't wait to go back. On Monday before Thanksgiving, we left for Norman, and it was so foggy. After we got done with our meeting, we went to OU to see Owen Field, and it's just like a monster — that thing is huge! We then went to the Oklahoma National Weather Center for a tour at 1 p.m. It's the biggest in the country, and every storm warning comes through that office. It was awesome to see the “behind the scenes” action of how it all works. Driving back through Norman, I think I see a BassPro Shop, but when I pulled off the road it was the Dave Stanley Chevrolet car dealership. It was huge, and it even has a “pet park” to let your dogs play. Marshall, the salesman who greeted us, jumped in front of my car, and was ready to deal. The dealership has a bunch of trucks and the most Corvettes in Oklahoma. Merle Moss would be in heaven in a place like that. When I was inside, Jacques was in the arcade, playing video games. I checked out the big fish tank with all those big bass swimming around, and I wished that I had brought a big fishing pole with me. We didn't buy anything, but it was one of the biggest and funniest car lots I'd ever visited. By now, we're all hungry. My wife, Jenny, wanted to try the Bricktown Brewery on Kickapoo Avenue in Shawnee. I love this place. It's got great service, a great atmosphere and awesome food. If you're going to an OU game, you'll have to go try it out. On game day, they have all kinds of specials. I may just drive over there just to eat its “Brewery Burger.” The fries come out in a little fry basket. Our waiter, Andrew, may be one of the best servers I've ever had. It was customer service all the

way. I'm telling you, don't pass this place up. Last Cast The Poteau Pirates' Class 4A state title game against No. 1 Anadarko has been canceled until 1 p.m. Dec. 14 at Oklahoma State University's Boone Pickens Stadium. I think the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association made a good call to cancel all the high school playoff games this weekend, including rescheduling Talihina's Class A state semifinal contest with No. 1 Ringling for — of all days — Friday the 13th. That's right. The TalihinaRingling game will be at 7 p.m. next Friday at Southeastern Oklahoma State University's Paul Laird Field in Durant. I'll have to leave on Thursday so I can set up a tailgate party. I can see it now, a huge Poteau Pirate tailgate party at my alma mater OSU. Now, that's exciting. This has been 63 years in the making, so we need to have a big tailgate party! Speaking of tailgate parties, have you seen Poteau police chief Stephen Fruen's decorated cop car — dressed up with Poteau Pirates stuff. Hey, chief. Do you mind if I take that to ride up to Stillwater for the big game? This year's Bedlam game between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State is set for 11 a.m. Saturday at OSU's Boone Pickens Stadium. You all know I love OSU, so y'all know who I'm cheering for on Saturday. I hope the Pokes pull one out of the cold weather conditions that will be present. Anyone want to bet me a cheeseburger on the game's outcome? If so, any and all are on. Speaking of bets, I have been challenged to a barbecue brisket cookoff by Monroe's Kevin Hill. I accept your challenge, Kevin. Aren't you aware who you're challenging, don't you, Kevin? The challenge will be Jan. 25, 2014. Did you see that big Christmas stocking at ToteA-Poke that is up for grabs in its drawing. I've been trying to win that thing for the past seven years ever since the store started its drawing for it. This could be my lucky year. It sure turned cold Wednesday and Thursday mornings. This is going to be the coldest weather since 2009. Even the snowmen want to come inside! You all stay warm, and huddle up for some great college football games this weekend. Save the world, recycle. God bless our troops and veterans. Have a great weekend. ••• Any questions or pictures, make contact with Jody Ray Adams on Facebook, on “The Jody Ray Fishing Hotline” at (918) 649-7387 or email to jodyray@classicnet.net.

The company started trading under the name Coleco. In 1982, Coleco introduced its short-lived gaming system, ColecoVision, followed by the doomed Adam Computer and the wildly successful Cabbage Patch Kids. But the success of the doll wasn't enough to divert bankruptcy. Hasbro bought the company assets in 1989. Q: Can you tell me where actor Randolph Scott was born and raised?

After a tour of military duty during World War I, he returned home and graduated with a degree in textile engineering and manufacturing from the University of North Carolina. While in college, he discovered his passion for acting and was given a letter of introduction to filmmaker Howard Hughes. Hughes helped Scott start his career; however, it was Scott's talent that took over from there. By the 1950s, he was one of the top 10 box-office attractions. Scott made more than 40 films before retiring from the silver screen in the early 1960s. Besides being an excellent actor, he was also a good businessman, having invested in oil wells, real estate and securities. He passed away on March 2, 1987, in Beverly Hills, Calif., at age 89.
