September 9 just folks from page A1 was not enough education for Cariker, he went onto get his masters in Fine Arts at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, receiving an MFA in 2003 for Acting/ Physical Theatre. “I was involved in Speech and Theatre my last two years in high school under the direction of Joyce Brandt,” said Cariker. “Other than acting and studying communication I was a Cheerleader for the Vikings as well as a Cheer Instructor for Poteau High. I was also involved with the community Theatre in Poteau as well.” After graduate school Cariker made his way to Chicago and spent three and half years working and living as an actor before returning to Sallisaw to help out the family after his father's heart surgery. Once his father's health was in better shape he moved to New York City in 2007, with everything he owned fitting into just three suit cases. So, how did Cariker become part of Piper Theater Productions? “My wife's first job with Piper was this past January. Every year John P. McEneny, Artistic Director of Piper and drama teacher in Brooklyn, holds a play writing festival for his seventh grade students. He hires professional actors to perform in his students plays for a week long festival,” answered Cariker. “I've done this festival for the past four years and my wife was cast in this last festival. Akilah (his wife) is an accomplished actor/ performer in her own right as well. Not to mention an amazing singer.” Cariker's wife, Akilah Gita-Aliz Williams-Cariker is originally from Bellingham, Wash. and the two married last October in New Orleans, La. “Two years ago John called me for a meeting to discuss developing a new show for Piper. He wanted to tackle H.G. Wells' classic The Island of Doctor Moreau,” he added. “This was one of my favorite books. He asked if I'd be game to come on board and help devise move- ment, fight, and theatri- art, ruins, and attractions cal elements for this proj- the town has, there's just to ect.

Sallisaw ICT Center thanks volunteers with help on summer camp The Eastern Oklahoma Healthcare Coalition, a nonprofit organization dedicated to collaboratively working to address the health care workforce needs in rural eastern Oklahoma, partnered with Indian Capital Technology Center (ICTC) earlier this summer to host the first annual Sallisaw Camp MD (Medical Detective). Nearly twenty 7th to 12th grade students from the Sequoyah County area participated in the free weeklong camp. ICTC Health Careers Certification Instructor, Natalie Sharp, organized and facilitated the camp to help students explore math, anatomy, physiology and biology in the context of health education and careers. “Throughout the camp, students were exposed to hands-on and interactive learning, they also had the opportunity to develop interests in myriad health related fields and learn about the 40+ health education programs available locally,” said Sharp. “Robert Wade, a Flight Nurse for the Air Evac Lifeteam based out of Muskogee, provided a helicopter for students to learn about the process of Air Evac and to explore the equipment,” added Sharp. In addition to the Air Evac, participants of the camp also took tours to the local 911-dispatch office with David Slaughter, Sequoyah Memorial Hospital and completed the ropes course provided by People Inc. Throughout the 35 hours of camp time, students participated in numerous activities on the campus which included; infection control protection including proper hand washing techniques and how and when to use Personal Protective Equipment, Diabetic Emergency Training, portfolio building, interviewing skills, as well as, work with the local Sheriff’s Department on alcohol prevention activities and texting and driving. At the conclusion of the camp, students were given post camp surveys to evaluate their thoughts on the camp. One hundred percent of students responded that the camp enhanced their knowledge of available health education programs in the area and that they would recommend the camp to friends or other students. Area colleges also had presentations about health degrees available in the area. ICTC would like to thank all of the professionals, businesses and community leaders who made this opportunity available for our local youth. Planning is already underway for the 2014 camp to be held next summer.

The County Election Board can accept applications for absentee ballots until 5 p.m. Oct. 2. Application forms are available at the County Election Board office at 110 E. Creek Ave., in Sallisaw. “At least two mail transactions must be made,” Osborn said. “The County Election Board must mail the ballots to the voter and the voter must return the voted ballots by mail.” Ballots must be in the hands of the County Election Board by 7 p.m. on election day in order to be counted. Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot in any election in which they are eligible to vote. However, a voter must be registered and reside at an address within the geographical boundaries of a school district or a municipality to be eligible to vote. It is not necessary to give a reason or excuse for voting absentee. By stating one of the following reasons on their application, these voters can activate some special conditions that make it easier for them to use absentee ballots: • Voters that are physically incapacitated and voters caring for incapacitated persons that cannot be left alone, may vote absentee. • Voters confined to a nursing home. • Military personnel and residents of the county living overseas and the spouses and dependents of each group. Military personnel should contact the Voting Services Officers in their units for application forms. Residents living overseas may obtain forms from any U.S. military installation or from U.S. Embassies and Consulates.

He wrote a plan for the new government, the Virginia Plan. Many of his ideas were adopted. He also took many notes and wrote up detailed reports. His records are our best sources of what went on. These were not published until after his death. Madison worked hard for ratification. He later served as a Virginia congressman and proposed the first 10 amendments (the Bill of Rights). After serving as James Madison secretary of state under Thomas Jefferson, he was elected as our fourth president. He lived longer than any other signer. He died at the age of 85 in 1836.

Big Ideas in Government Inside the Constitution are several big ideas: • Separation of powers: The delegates feared that giving too much power to any person or group could be dangerous. So they created three branches, or parts, of government: executive, legislative and judicial. • Checks and balances: This idea limits the power of each government branch. No single branch can overpower the others. Often, each branch needs the help of the others to do its job. • Enumerated (e-NOOM-er-ateed) powers: the listed powers of government. • Implied powers: the powers that are not listed but suggested. • Federalism: the idea that our government divides powers between the national government and the state governments. from The Mini Page © 2013 Universal Uclick The Constitution includes: • A preamble (an introduction) • Seven articles (sections), covering: • Article I: The Congress • Article V: How the Constitution (legislative can be amended, branch). or changed.

When life throws those rotten apples in our face, our judgment and vision become clouded. During these trying times, it is hard for us to see clearly, and what we see is subjective and bias – often with good cause. Knowing that my eye has a beam in it – I still believe it doesn’t change the facts, and issues should be discussed that need repaired. According to a news release from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, dated August 9, 2012, nearly 3.4 million violent crimes go unreported each year. One must ask, “why?” While the reasons are many and varied, would we be better off if they were reported? What if an incident is reported – can we expect our current system to respond adequately? On September 9, I received a disturbing call from a relative – who was extremely upset. According to this individual, physical abuse occurred at home (choked, hit with a broom, thrown on the floor, etc.) – resulting in being bruised and a sense of shame that such abuse would occur from a family member. Being distraught myself and living outside of the area, I placed a call to the Sallisaw Police department on this individual’s behalf, requesting a welfare check. After having a cordial phone discussion and sharing as many details as I had, I was assured an officer would respond – and that I would receive a call back. Today I’m still waiting on the call back. I have spoken with the individual abused, and the person did confirm that a phone call was received from the police department four hours after my call, requesting a statement. What?! A phone call – when clearly a violent crime was committed! Is this the best we can expect? I realize that the department has to prioritize and work within their limited resources. However, victims of abuse often try to hide it – thus non-reporting as in the statistics above. Is it too much to ask that when alleged abuse occurs that a minimum the department will visit face-to-face with the individual? I realize that the police department has very good personnel working and daily perform a calling of duty that is commendable. However, when a policy see letters, PAGE A9 You’ve earned your stripes S everal days ago Carrie Carberry, Your TIMES ad manager, and I were at lunch talking about work. We do that a lot even though we always say we aren’t going to. I was telling Carrie about a recent interview I did with a very interesting woman from Gans. When I originally set up the interview I had planned to write the piece as a Just Folks story. But afterwards I felt like the story would actually be better as a feature. The story is about a civil war veteran from Sequoyah County, a relative of the woman I interviewed. Carrie commented that it sounded like it would be perfect for Veteran’s Day. This lead to a conversation about honoring all veterans and the idea for the You’ve Earned Your Stripes special section was born. We want to honor and show off all our area veterans, past and present, and we need your help to do it. You may have seen the ad in today’s paper about submissions but let me explain it further. We are asking for submissions from you and we would love to see a variety of things. If you want to submit a short story about the veteran in your life, we’ll take it. If you are a veteran and you want to submit a story about your service, we’ll take it. If you simply want to submit a photo with the name, rank and branch of service of a Sequoyah County veteran that you would like to show off, we’ll take it! Sprinkled among your submissions will be a few feature stories and columns from Your TIMES staffers. We are so excited about this section and what we hope it will contain so from As I now until Oct. 25 get those See It submissions to us. You can drop them by the Gina Smith office at 111 North Oak in News Editor Sallisaw. You can also email them directly to me at gina@ seqcotimes.com. Please attach your name and phone number to the submission so that if we have any questions we can give you a call. My father and my grandfather served in the U.S. Army. I have always been proud of their service. The section is just one way that Your TIMES hopes to honor Sequoyah County veterans who have or are serving in every branch of our armed forces, because they have earned their stripes and as I see it they have also earned our respect. County’s growth is among top 10 —Sequoyah County Times, Sept. 11, 1988 From the files of Your Sequoyah County Times This week in county history 25 Years Ago (From the Sept. 11, 1988, issue of the Sequoyah County Times) –Sequoyah County has been shown by a recent study to be the ninth fastest growing area in the state, state officials have announced. Roger A. Jacks with the state’s Office of Economic Analysis in Oklahoma City said he believes the county’s growth from 1980 to 1987, the period of the study, may be attributed to pari-mutuel racing at Blue Ribbon Downs, the promotion of the Lake Tenkiller area for retirement and tourism, and the county’s proximity to the larger industrial base in Fort Smith. 50 Years Ago (From the Sept. 13, 1963, issue of the Sequoyah County Times) —The Vian State Bank in cooperation with the County Agents of this area is sponsoring a Fruit & Vegetable Growers Clinic on Sept. 17th, at 2 p.m. at Vian High School auditorium. Mr. George W. Jones, Produce Manager, Gerber Products Company, South Central Division, which is located in Fort Smith, Ark., will be the speaker. The clinic is being held to acquaint the growers of this area with Gerber’s fruit and vegetable procurement program and to discuss with them Gerber’s policy in working with growers through all the seasons of the year. Construction of the new Gerber plant, which is located in the northeast section of Fort Smith, near the Van Buren bridge, is under way, but the processing facility for fruit and vegetables is not scheduled for completion until the summer of 1965. 75 years Ago (From the Sept. 15, 1938, issue of The Democrat-American and the Sept. 16, 1938, issue of the Sequoyah County Times) —The county officials have been making a concrete effort for the past several nights to stop liquor transsee history, PAGE A9 Think on these things By Joyce Sequichie hifler In an old dictionary, romance is said to mean something with a touch of vulgarity. To me, romance means beauty and tenderness — such as moonlight silhouetting beautiful trees and sunlight sparkling on wind-waves of a lake or pond. The song of a night bird and the strains of a violin are truly romantic and beautiful. Romance really is “to each his own.” If just the name “romance” covers a multitude of off-color stories, much is missed. We are all well-aware that many stories and incidences are not pleasant to read — to some, not pleasant to read unless they are a bit risque. But please do not miss the beauty of many romantic voices and scenes that are not to exploit vulgarity but to lift out vision to enjoy sweeter things. Some things are meant to lead the mind astray, but listen, the mind doesn’t have to go if it doesn’t want to. enny, my miniature pincher housedog, always amazes me, and just to prove it, she pulled a new trick last week. It wasn’t too long after I fed her that I noticed her little head bobbing up and down over her food bowl. ‘What is she doing?’ I wondered. She looked like one of those bobbing birds folks use to put in the rear windows of their cars. Never understood why they did that, although I admit I’d really like to have one of those birds just to determine how it works. All a matter of balance I guess. Those little wooden bobbing birds may be attention getters, and my dog bobbing up and down got my attention, and caused me some concern. Was she trying to throw up? Was she choking? But I didn’t hear any “Achs-achs,” so it appeared Penny wasn’t suffering a physical problem. OK. Was she being mesmerized by some sort of snake or maybe a spider spinning a web up and down? Nope. After my period of not very scientific dog-behavior observation, I found that Penny had a plan of her own. Penny is a picky eater, and prefers twocourse meals. I must put down a layer of dry dog kibble in her food dish, topped by a package of the wet stuff. Then the bowl must be placed in the exact sport where Penny wishes to eat. And then she stares at me until I leave the room. Only then does she eat her dinner. For such a small dog, Penny wolfs down her meal very quickly. She only stops eating if I walk into the kitchen. And if I stop to look at her, she stares right back at me without blinking, delivering so much guilt that I blink first and leave the room. And that’s why I watched Penny’s bobbing behavior from the living room. I had to spy on her, or she would stop whatever it was and stare back at me. What Penny was doing totally surprised me. My little dog had gobbled down her chopped chicken so fast she had spilled her kibble. Apparently distressed that her kibble had scattered, she was stacking every bit of kibble, with her nose, into a pile. And it wasn’t just any kind of pile either. It was a perfectly pilled-up pyra- P Penny builds a pyramid mid. I couldn’t have done that with my nose. When Penny’s pile was complete, she daintily picked up the top kibble and ate it. And she nibbled her kibble pyramid all the way down to the floor. It was amazing. I’d never seen her do that before. But mini-pin Penny has always surprised me, as I’ve related quite often here. When I first got Penny all my pet-knowledgeable friends warned me against hyper and obnoxious mini-pins. Crazy was the best word used to describe mini-pins, friends argued. And Penny proved them Sally’s right, from destroying my Alley drapes, at the exact height all the way across, to escapSally Maxwell ing from the house, my Senior pet has always done pretty Staff Writer much as she pleases, sort of like a little kid seeking trouble. For instance, when Penny steals the cat’s food bowl, with kibble of course, she always does it quickly and quietly, and carries it into the living room so she can finish off the cat kibble without causing a ruckus. When she needs a flea treatment, she lets me know by backing up to the living room doorframe to scratch her bottom, in places she can’t reach, bobbing her bottom up and down more rigorously than she did when bobbing her head to construct that kibble pyramid. Then she whines piteously at me, sparking another guilt trip on my part. When she really wants my attention she climbs up on the sofa beside me and pounces. I’ve got eight holes in my arm right now to prove it. And if I do as directed by Penny, she gives me a high five with her right paw, which has delighted several others. I confess, I sometimes stare into Penny’s eyes and believe she’s smarter than me. And now I must also confess that, after watching Penny stack her kibble, she is also a better housekeeper than me. I would never do that. I just wish Penny would learn how to wash the dishes. & DIAMONDNET Black Diamond Football Live 4A Football Televised Every Week! Sept. 13 Black Diamonds vs. Claremore-Seq Away 7:30 pm Channel 19 Diamonds avoid another top QB; hope to notch ﬁrst win BY MARK EVANS SPORTS EDITOR SPORTS Sequoyah County Times Friday September 13, 2013 B1 The good news is the Sallisaw Black Diamonds will avoid a talented senior quarterback for the second straight week. The bad news is the Diamonds are also facing some injuries. College prospect Daniel Moniz, a 6-2 senior who ran for 1,571 yards and 19 touchdowns last year, while passing for 1,488 yards and 12 TDs in leading the Eagles to the third round of the 3A playoffs, is still recovering from a summer knee injury. Last week the Diamonds missed Tulsa-bound QB Jabe Burgess when they played Greenwood. “Moniz tore his ACL back in the summer and he’s probably two weeks away from being ready,” head coach Craig Benson said. “Coach (Jody) Iams isn’t going to push him back into action too early because of how tough their district is.” Starting tailback McKaine Foster is filling in at quarterback until Moniz returns. “Foster was a quarterback before Moniz took over two years ago,” Benson said. “It’s not like he’s foreign to the position. They run the ball more with Foster than they throw it, so it’s a dif- JEFF MAYO • TIMES ferent look, but they’re far from lacking in their quarterback play. They get a lot of mileage out of Foster.” Meanwhile the Diamonds are also replacing starters, with both Dakota “Red” Wylie and Tyler Harrell going down on the offensive line. “We’ve got some injuries now,” Benson said. “Tyler Harrell broke some ribs. He’s doubtful. Dakota Wylie broke his ankle, so he’s out. We’re replacing two senior returning starters on the line. We’ve got to try to get better in that regard.” Sequoyah picked up 304 total yards in a season-opening 37-7 win over Keys. Foster scored two touchdowns, the first of which gave the Eagles a 17-0 halftime lead. Garrett Shepherd and Will Shea combined for more than 200 yards rushing and three touchdowns, while Chance Schultz kicked a 25-yard field goal. Benson’s focus, though, is on his own troops. “We’ve got to get ourselves better,” he said. “We’ve got to find out more about ourselves. We need to find out where we’re at. We need to get better at several SEE DIAMONDS, PAGE B2 Sallisaw defenders swarm around a Greenwood ball carrier last week, during their 49-3 season-opening loss. Pirates want to right ship against physical Mounds squad BY LEA LESSLEY SPORTS WRITER The Pirates hope to register their first win of the season tonight as Gore journeys to Creek County to take on the Mounds Golden Eagles in a nondistrict high school football contest. The kickoff at Mounds, which is located about 11 miles south of Sapulpa on U.S. Highway 75 alternate, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Gore is 0-1 for the season after losing at Class 2A Panama 34-0 last week, and Mounds is 1-0 after beating Liberty 32-8. “That (Mounds-Liberty) is a big rivalry,” said Gore head coach Craig Bivins, who formerly was an assistant coach at Kellyville, another Creek County school. “They’ve got some running backs who run the ball hard and a couple of big-size linemen. Their tight end is a big, tall kid and a good player. They’ll line up in the I-formation Pirates and run a ball-control offense. They like to play smash-mouth football and run between the tackles. “On defense we have to do our jobs. We have to take care of our positions and keep them inside.” Gore’s projected defensive starters for tonight are Zachary Williams (5- foot-11, 275-pound junior) at nose guard, Blakelee Lehnick (6-2, 240, senior) and Noah Batesole (5-10, 210, junior) at the defensive tackle spots, Chris Jarvis (6-2, 190, senior), Steven Gilley (6-0, 190, freshman) and Jacob Polk (5-11, 160, senior) at the defensive end positions, C.J. Lehnick (5-9, 160, junior) and Tanner Clay (5-10, 170, junior) at the inside linebacker slots, Hunter Morgan (61, 155, sophomore) and Peyton O’Neal (5-10, 160, senior) at the corners and Wade Shanks (5-10, 165, junior) and Jacob Tincher (5-8, 155, sophomore) at the safety spots. “They’ll run a 4-3, 4-4 type defense,” Bivins said. “Their defensive end, who plays tight end on offense, is pretty good. “On offense we’ve got to block better and hang on to the ball. We’ve got to take care of the football.” The Pirates committed seven turnovers in last week’s loss. Projected offensive starters for the Pirates tonight are Noah Batesole at center, Zachary Williams and Owen James (510, 210, freshman) at the guard positions, Blakelee Lehnick and Bentley SEE GORE, PAGE B3 Rangers, improved Razorbacks both shooting for a 2-0 start BY MARK EVANS SPORTS EDITOR Panama last beat Roland in 1992. Since then the Rangers have won six straight games, including 8-0, 41-9 and 44-0 wins since the series resumed in 2010. Former Gore head coach Brandon Ellis appears to have the Razorbacks on the move, though. They pounded Gore 34-0 in their season opener. “They did pretty well against Gore,” head coach Jeff Streun said. “Coach Ellis does a good job. He has a lot of young kids growing up.” One who is growing up quick is sophomore quarterback Andy Burris. Burris (57, 140 pounds) completed four of seven passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 71 yards on 14 tries. He ran for another two scores. Fellow 10th-grader Donald Lotchleas (60, 160), led the team with 95 yards on 14 tries. As a team they ran for 177 yards, averaging 4.8 per carry. “They can run and have a good-sized line. Ben Whiteaker, a 6-3, 160 junior, had three sacks in the game, while senior Trey Byrd intercepted a pass. The Razorbacks also recovered five Pirate fumbles, two recovered by senior Nikita Barshirs. Roland ran for 155 yards and passed for 119 against Muldrow. Sophomore quarterback Manuel Bunch completed nine of 17 passes and threw a TD pass to his brother Madison. Senior Laython Carter ran 21 times for 89 yards and a touchdown. Bunch caught five passes for 95 yards After pulling away late for a 22-0 seasonopener against arch-rival Muldrow, Streun doesn’t want his players reflecting on last year’s 44-0 score. “It’s a big test for us,” he said. “We’ve got to focus not on what happened last year, but on what happens this year. This is a very good football team.” So far the Rangers are avoiding the injury bug that has hit them hard in some recent seasons. “We’re not in too bad a shape,” Streun said. “We had some kids cramping last week. “ The one concern this week is junior defensive back/receiver Rashawn Eubanks, who has a hip injury. “We don’t know how much he’ll play,” Streun said. Roland receiver Madison Bunch battles Muldrow defender Dedrrick White. MARK EVANS • TIMES B2 • SPORTS www.sequoyahcountytimes.com FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 • SEQUOYAH COUNTY TIMES Battered Bulldogs try to focus on second rivalry game BY MARK EVANS SPORTS EDITOR If Roland isn’t Muldrow’s biggest rival, then Spiro is. The Bulldogs, who fell 22-0 to Roland in their opener, will try to pick up the pieces and face Spiro tonight. Already extremely low on experience, the Muldrow squad has already been hit with some devastating blows this fall. For one, quarterback Ian Nicol, who won the starting quarterback job, was lost for the year late in the Roland game after completing 12 of 18 passes. An even bigger blow was an ATV accident that left junior lineman Christian Mayberry for Mayberry fighting his life. “They’re trying to deal with it,” head coach Rob Johnson said. “He’s a good kid. Everybody likes him.” Senior Clay Cowett wore his jersey, No. 75, against Roland, to honor Mayberry. Last year Spiro rallied from a 12-0 halftime deficit, beating Muldrow 20- 12. This year the Spiro squad is coming off a solid performance against Vian. Vian wound up winning 32-14, but Spiro made several runs at the Wolverines, cutting the lead to 12-7 and later 25-14. “They’re very good, with a lot of speed,” Johnson said. “They gave Vian all they wanted. Vian just had a little more experience.” Spiro ran 23 times for 144 yards and completed 10 of 19 passes for 186 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. McKinley Whitfield and Trevon Mitchem split quarterbacking duties. Whitfield started, going 8-for-13 for 119 yards, one TD and one interception. Nicol When he suffered cramping problems, Mitchem, last year’s starting QB, moved from receiver and completed two of six passes for 67 yards. He also had one TD and one interception. Marvin McFerren ran for 85 yards on eight carries, while Whitfield picked up 62 yards on 12 tries. “They’re fast on the edges and real big up front,” Johnson said. “They have a strong linebacker corps. No. 11, McKenzie Whitfield, is their best player. He’s a real talent, real fast, with a good arm. “No. 10, Trevor Mitchem comes in for him. They switch spots a lot.” Naturally, Spiro being Spiro, there is plenty of speed on hand. “Their defensive backs are very fast and very physical,” Johnson said. “Frankie Sullivan, a 6-2, 170-pound tight end/ defensive end, is really impressive. So is No. 75, Brandon Robinson, who is 6-3, 295.” Despite the setbacks, the Bulldogs will be throwing everything they have at their other big rival Friday. “We’re back to the drawing board, but our kids will work hard,” Johnson said. “There’s no reason for us not to believe we can win Friday.” They have done so six of their 13 meetings with Spiro since 2000. The superstitious might point out that the last time they played, on Friday the 13th was 2002, Spiro won, 21-14. Tigers facing another big test with No. 9 Cashion BY LEA LESSLEY SPORTS WRITER Central opens the home portion of its high school football schedule tonight as the Tigers host Cashion in a non-league game. The contest at Tiger Field is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Cashion, which is located about 25 miles northwest of Oklahoma City, is 0-1 for the season after the Wildcats dropped a 26-14 decision to Okeene last week. Cashion is ranked ninth and Okeene is No. 6 in the Oklahoman’s Class A poll this week. The Wildcats were 13-1 in 2012 after reaching the semifinals of the Class A playoffs, and Central head coach Jeremy Thompson knows the Wildcats are still a dangerous opponent. “ T h e y throw the Poindexter ball very well and their quarterback (Matt Harman) has a strong arm,” Thompson said. “They also have a good offensive line.” Harman is a 6-foot, 165-pound freshman. Two All- Staters, quarterback Ty Reasnor and offensive lineman Dexton Robertson, are gone from last year’s team, but a trio of receivers return for Cashion. Joe Neece, Hunter Suntken and Peyton Maroney return at the wide receiver spots for the Wildcats. Neece finished last season with a Class A-best 1,280 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns. “Our defensive line needs to get better play this week,” Thompson Philpot said. “Our tackling needs to improve and in our secondary we can’t let people behind us. We made some mistakes last week that we can’t make again.” Cashion’s base defense is the 3-4. “On offense we can’t have turnovers,” Thompson said. “Last week on our first possession we were moving the chains and we had a turnover. We can’t do that. We have to sustain our blocks and our wide receivers need to do a better job of blocking on the edge. Our perimeter blocking needs to be good.” Central is 0-1 for the season after the Tigers dropped a 44-24 decision at Class 2A Kansas last week. “It was a tough game, but we kept playing hard and we hope to improve this week,” Thompson said. The Tigers scored two defensive touchdowns last week: a 36-yard interception return by inside linebacker John Philpot and a 24-yard fumble return by inside linebacker Tanner Poindexter. Each player recorded 13 tackles in the contest. Reserve quarterback Shade Nofire rushed for a 15-yard touchdown in the game and Blake Pearce kicked a 35-yard field and three extra points. The senior kicker also had three touchbacks.

Lattimore Stadium debut Sept. 20 against Tahlequah. “We’re using these non-district games as a chance to fix ourselves and figure out what we’re capable of and learn from ‘em and grow from ‘em and get better every week,” Benson said. “Right now we’re putting some band aides on, trying to fix holes in the lineup. Figure out how we’re going to get our running backs loose and get the ball to our receivers and stuff like that.” In the season-opening 49-3 loss to three-time defending state champion Greenwood, the Diamonds could generate only 135 total yards. They ran for 100, while passing for 35. “Were going to add some things, we’re going to be a little bit more wide open and see where it takes us,” Benson said. “Defensively, I think we’ve got a sound defense. We’ve got to stop the big plays because they’re quite capable of big plays. They’re really good. We’re going to face another team – not on the same wave length as Greenwood – but still a very good football team.” Sequoyah is on Hwy 66, just north of Claremore.

DISTRICT B-4 SEQUOYAH COUNTY TIMES • FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 SPORTS • B3 Wolverines host an Ironhead team coming off big win BY MARK EVANS SPORTS EDITOR After losing a bushel of talented seniors who had gone 33-5, the Vian Wolverines will likely have to play several fourquarter games this year. Last year the Wolverine starters were seldom seen after halftime, with the team averaging better than 50 points per first half, well into their playoff run. Last week they led Spiro 19-7 at the half, with the Bulldogs later closing to 25-14 before Vian won 32-14. Eufaula is one team that hopes to give Vian a much better game than their average score of 44-8 over the last four seasons. The Ironheads are the Wolverines’ opponent tonight in their home opener at St. John Stadium. Senior Devon Siers spurred the Ironheads to a 27-0 opening victory over Sperry in head coach Larry Newton Jr.’s first game at Eufaula. Siers intercepted three passes, returning one 37 yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead late in the first half. He also scored on a 55-yard punt return in the third quarter. “Eufaula is a much improved football team,” head coach Brandon Tyler said. “They’ll be a little different than Spiro. Spi- MARK EVANS • TIMES Vian captains Dakota Eads, Shamal Evans, Joey Kelley and Andre English take the ﬁeld for the coin toss at Spiro. ro was more balanced, wanting to throw and run a little bit. Eufaula’s going to look to run the football. They feel like they’ve got some physical guys over there. They’ve got a big line and a quarterback and running back that do a good job of running down hill. It will definitely be a physical ball game, a different type of ball game than what we were in last week.” The Ironheads rushed for 236 yards behind their big line of Colton Walker (6-2, 245), Gage Durrett (6-3, 245) and Colby Marshall (6-2, 230). They are using a tailback-by-committee approach, with Siers, Trey and Shane Moore and Casey Pryor splitting carries. Trey Moore opened the scoring with a rushing touchdown. The Eufaula defense, meanwhile, held Sperry to a meager 55 total yards. Last week Vian ran for 307 yards on 41 carries, while quarterback Riley Simon went 8-for12 for 152 yards through the air. Spiro managed 144 yards on the ground and another 191 passing against Vian. The Wolverines will be going in full-strength. “We’re healthy,” Tyler said. “We just had to battle a few cramps the other night. As hot as it was, that’s to be expected, but I was proud of our conditioning. For the most part it was good.” Vian leads the series 6-5 during the 2000s, last losing to Eufaula Oct. 5, 2007 by a score of 24-9. Last year Vian rolled, 55-6. Warriors hope to notch ﬁrst victory against Wright Christian BY LEA LESSLEY SPORTS WRITER Webbers Falls travels to Tulsa tonight for a non-district high school football game against Wright Christian Academy, looking to record its first victory of the season. The kickoff at Wright Christian Stadium, which is located at 11391 E. Admiral Place, is scheduled for 7 p.m., rather than 7:30. The Warriors dropped a 14-6 decision at Porum last week while Wright Christian suffered a 62-50 setback to Cookson Hills. Webbers Falls’ head coach Steve Corn says the Wright Christian Wildcats are much different from last week’s opponent. “They are the polar opposite of Porum,” Corn said. “They run spread (offense) and they’re never under center. Porum had a lot of size up-front, and we match up perfectly with Wright Christian (sizewise). Their quarterback (Logan Bowline) is their best player and they have a good wide receiver.” Bowline, who is also a defensive back, produced 453 total yards of offense and seven touchdowns in last week’s loss, and the senior also had 10 tackles. “If we can contain the quarterback everything will take care of itself,” Corn said. “On defense they’ll run a 4-front and man up across the board. Against double-tight they’ll walk their corners up to the line of scrimmage daring you to run up the middle. “If we can hit some quick passes and hold our blocks we’ll take care of business.” Webbers Falls’ quarterback Darren Shanks, who was the Warriors’ leading rusher last week with 50 yards on 17 carries, completed an eight-yard touchdown pass to Easton Eckhardt in the fourth period last week. Corn is hoping his team learned some lessons from last week’s loss. “Porum definitely opened our eyes,” Corn said. “We have to give effort every game and make sure we’ve got it all down. We can’t do the same things we did last year because this year is different. Everyone has to do their jobs.” PHOTO SUBMITTED BY VICKIE TINCHER Gore’s Abby Brown connects with a pitch during a recent game. The Lady Pirates are 3-12 on the year. Holt expects better game from Strother this time around BY MARK EVANS SPORTS EDITOR Gans’ first district B-4 game may not be a pushover tonight. A year ago the Grizzlies ripped Strother 54-8 in Week Two. The Yellowjackets, who had beaten the Oklahoma School for the Deaf in their 2012 opener, skidded to nine straight losses and a 1-9 record. This time around the Yellowjackets opened with a rousing 80-46 win over traditional Class C power Medford. Senior fullback Kaleb Kerley rushed for a whopping 426 yards and seven touchdowns on 14 carries, while Sawyer Marquis ran eight times for 190 yards and three TDs. As a team the Yellowjackets carried the ball 36 times for 678 yards and 10 TDs, averaging an amazing 18.8 yards per carry against Medford, a state semifinalist as recently as 2007. Marquis also went 3-for6 passing for 90 yards and a touchdown. The TD was a 52-yard strike to senior Zane Ter Wee. Of course they didn’t exactly shut down the Cardinals, who rushed for 367 yards and passed for another 259. Medford tailback Robby Webb ran for 228 yards and three scores on 15 carries. “They scored a bunch of points against Medford,” head coach Trent Holt said.. “They’ve improved from last year.” Both teams hope to move to 2-0 and open B-4 play with a victory. Holt expects a battle this time around. “They have a good tailback and they threw the ball all right,” he said of Strother’s game with Medford. After the Grizzlies’ solid 36-8 opening win over Midway, Holt feels good going into the game. Gans got two TD passes from Clay Sizemore to Markeil McQueary. McQueary also returned a punt for a touchdown and scored a rushing touchdown, as did Mason Mooneyham. “If we play we’ll have a good chance to win,” Holt said. The Grizzlies’ home opener will be Sept. 20 against Bowlegs. SPORTS GORE FROM PAGE B1 Area Lake Report SOUTHEAST Eufaula: September 8. Elevation 1 1/2 ft. above normal, water clear.
