A water line for hydraulic fracturing traverses an oil and gas access road in Woods County. pulling oil and gas from the tight Mississippi Lime shale, one of the state’s most productive plays. The water lines’ thick, stiff plastic tubing is a nuisance for landowners like Joe Shirley, who runs Shirley Farms near Alva, which makes money selling seed wheat and running cattle. The farm’s foreman, Brandon McCamey, says the pipelines show up without warning, often blocking entrances to pastures. “Whenever the pipe was there, you couldn’t drive over it,” he says. “You’d drag it, it’d catch on pickups.” We drive around the county, and McCamey points to water pipes laid across driveways, and ones pulled so tight they’ve broken fenceposts and mailboxes. It’s impossible to mow around the water lines, so the grass between the road and the fence grows tall. “The cattle would stick through, trying to get the grass on the other side of the fence,” McCamey says. “They kept pushing through the fence. We had them getting out.” Permit Change In the spring of 2013, after nonstop complaints from the landowners, Commissioner McMurphy decided to add a stipulation to his district’s permit: Oil and gas companies had to get permission from the landowner before they could install new water lines along county roads. “[Landowners] couldn’t get in a

gate, they couldn’t get in a pasture. They couldn’t get to their mailbox – the mail person couldn’t get there because there’s a line running right beside the mailbox, or through their gate,” McMurphy says. “They didn’t know who to call, they didn’t know who it was that laid it there.” McMurphy says oil companies complained about his permit change. But a 1982 opinion by the Oklahoma Attorney General’s (AG) office seems to agree with McMurphy. The AG at the time, Jan Eric Cartwright, wrote that these water lines aren’t “common carriers,” a term describing public utilities like railroads, telephone or electric lines, or big state-regulated oil and gas pipelines. The Association of County Commissioners was also concerned with McMurphy’s decision, which — though it applied only to District 2 in Woods County — runs contrary to state statutes requiring county commissioners to vote as a board on such changes, says the association’s executive director Gayle Ward. Complicating matters further, an assistant district attorney in Woods County approved McMurphy’s permit change. “District attorneys are the highest legal authority in counties, so when they approve of an action their word is final,” Ward says. “Your hands are pretty much tied at that point.” Seeking water line permits from

county clerks is standard practice throughout the state. Jeff Wilson, the vice president of governmental affairs at the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association, says a county permit is all the permission oil companies need. “Because they’re temporary,” Wilson says. But several prominent landowners in northwest Oklahoma share Commissioner McMurphy’s reading of the law. In March 2013, they filed a class-action lawsuit against a pair of Oklahoma energy giants – Sandridge and Chesapeake – over water lines they say were laid without permission or financial compensation. None of the landowners or their principal attorney would talk to StateImpact about the case. Chesapeake Energy declined comment, and Sandridge didn’t respond to interview requests. Despite the uncertainty, Commissioner McMurphy says energy companies are likely still laying water lines – just without permits. There is talk that a new state law might be needed to establish authority over energy industry water lines, but no specific bills are being considered. Until then, it’s in the hands of courts, county commissioners and cowboys, like McCamey, who says landowners sometimes solve water line problems themselves. “If you don’t get it buried, we’re going to take a chainsaw to it,” he says.

Brandon McCamey, a foreman at the Shirley Ranch, helps unload a trailer of Red Angus cattle into a livestock near Alva. The land McCamey manages is surrounded by temporary water lines used by the oil and gas industry, which create headaches for farmers.

Woods County commissioners make fair board changes By Lynn L. Martin Membership of the Woods County Fair Board was modified by the county commissioners at their Monday meeting. The modification request came from David Hamil, Chairman of the Woods County Free Fair. Deleted from the fair board was Max Horn (District #3) and Jaroed Reed (District #2). Then they transferred Cody McMurphy from District 1 to District 2 and Kevin Pingleton from District 2 to District 3. A new member is Crystal Murrow for District 1. A rail crossing project by the BNSF Railway company was approved by the county commissioners. The installation of three flashing signals with gates utilizing prediction circuitry was outlined. They are at Eagle Chief Road, Avard; Main Street Hopeton; and County Road N-2480. There will be a permanent crossing closure at Lake Road, Avard. The entire project is expected to cost $1,083,000 to be paid from railroad and federal funds. Several agenda items were tabled. Selection of a grader to purchase from previously submitted bids was tabled because a contract to move the old grader to District 2 needed to be completed. The six month bids were also tabled. Wedding The commissioners puzzled over whether a

requirement of proof of liability insurance was needed to grant approval for a wedding to be held on the west stage of the courthouse on May 31, 2014. The request came from Jill Hobbs. In the past, events where vendors were present triggered the need for the insurance. Since no vendors were mentioned they decided to approve the request without liability insurance being required. A request to junk an assessor’s office plotter was approved. Monica Schmidt says the old plotter can no longer interface with modern computers and they have replaced it. The following road crossing permits were approved: D1 D1 D1 D2 D2

By Oklahoma Watch On most days in Oklahoma, one to six people kill themselves. In 2013, through midDecember, 576 people committed suicide in the state, more than twice as many as the 239 who died in homicides. Homicides get all of the headlines and news footage. Suicides take place invisibly, cloaked in shame, fear of intruding on privacy, fear of inspiring others to take their own lives. Mental-health experts, however, call out almost in anguish for more attention to be paid to the problem, especially in a state with one of the nation’s highest suicide rates. If you know someone who might be thinking of taking his or her own life, find help online at http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/gethelp/someone.aspx. If you yourself are suicidal or deep-

ly depressed, please go to http:// www.suicidepreventionlifeline. org/. Below is some analysis of the year’s data from the Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner as a reminder of the constant,

often only ritually and privately acknowledged toll of lost lives, which experts say is preventable. In 2013, through Dec. 10, more than two-thirds of suicides were committed using firearms.

Police work several accident scenes By Marione Martin Two vehicles collided in Alva on Monday, Dec. 2, on Flynn Street east of Ninth Street. The wreck occurred about 8:30 p.m. According to the report filed by Alva Police Officer Anthony Fogle, Lisa Gilispie, 29, of Maysville, Ky., was traveling west on Flynn in a 2004 Chevrolet. Stormy Nettles, 39, of Dacoma was backing a 2014 Toyota from public parking and struck the Gilispie vehicle on the passenger

side. No injuries were reported. Hit and Run A Chickasha man was charged in Woods County District Court with two misdemeanors following a wreck in the parking lot of Cowboy’s Bar on Dec. 7 about 1:40 a.m. Alva police were called to the scene by Robert Joe Castillo Jr. of Rockdale, Texas, whose vehicle was damage. A witness reported seeing the collision and said the driver left the scene. Later Terry

Counterfeit currency passed at Wal-Mart

By Marione Martin A customer apparently handed over some fake money at the Alva WalMart store last week. On Dec. 13 about 10:20 p.m. Alva Police Officer Wade Suffron responded to a call from the store. A manager there handed over $360 in counterfeit $20 bills. The manager and the officer reviewed surveillance video to find the person paying with the counterfeit cash.

Chick, 31, was located at a nearby motel. He was charged with DUI and leaving the scene of an accident with property damage. Anthony Fogle was the investigating officer. Turning Confusion Sometimes it is difficult to decode what another driver is going to do. That was the problem that resulted in a collision at the Alva Pizza Hut on Dec. 11 at 10:30 a.m. Troy Skubal, 39, of Woodward, was driving a 2006 Freightliner semi. He had stopped in the west entrance of Pizza Hut at 205 E. Oklahoma Blvd. (US281) where he was waiting to turn onto the highway. Judy Jones, 53, of Alva, was traveling east in the outside lane of Oklahoma

FDA to make food safety rules more farmer-friendly By Mary Clare Jalonick WASHINGTON (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration says it will revise sweeping new food safety rules proposed earlier this year after farmers complained the rules could hurt business. Michael Taylor, FDA’s commissioner for foods, said the agency wants to make sure the rules are practical for farmers who have to abide by them. The rules proposed in January would require farmers to take new precautions against contamination, making sure workers’ hands are washed, irrigation water is clean and that animals stay out of fields, among other precautions. Food manufacturers would also have to submit food safety plans to the government to show they are keeping their operations clean. Those changes would

in many cases require new equipment, paperwork and record keeping. Taylor said the agency’s thinking has evolved after talking to farmers. “Because of the input we received from farmers and the concerns they expressed about the impact of these rules on their lives and livelihood, we realized that significant changes must be made, while ensuring that the proposed rules remain consistent with our food safety goals,” Taylor said in a blog post on the FDA website. The rules would mark the first time the FDA would have real authority to regulate food on farms, and the FDA said when it proposed the rules that they could cost large farms $30,000 a year. The food safety law was passed by Congress at the end of 2010, weeks before Republicans assumed control of the House. Since then, many GOP lawmakers have said the rules are too burdensome for farmers, and the House version of a five-year farm bill would delay some of the law. Some Democrats advocating for organic farmers have also been critical, saying small farms can’t afford the new standards. Many of the concerns the FDA heard from farmers were about new regulations for testing irrigation water, Taylor said. Organic farmers have also been wary of standards for using raw manure and compost. Supporters have said the new laws are needed after several high-profile, foodborne illness outbreaks in peanuts, spinach, eggs, cantaloupe and other foods. While many farmers and food manufacturers already follow good food safety practices, the law would aim to ensure that all of them do. There are an estimated 3,000 deaths a year from foodborne illness. The rules are already somewhat tailored to make the changes easier on farmers. They would apply only to certain fruits and vegetables that pose the greatest risk, like berries, melons, leafy greens and other foods that are usually eaten raw. A farm that produces green beans that will be canned and cooked, for example, would not be regulated. In addition to regulating farms and food manufacturing facilities, the food safety law authorized more inspections by the FDA and gave the agency additional powers to shut down food facilities. The law also required stricter standards on imported foods.

In My Corner By Arden Chaffee I’ve been seeing a commercial that states that 30 percent of the fuel used in city driving is trolling for a parking space. We occasionally face that challenge in Alva, but it is acute, not chronic. New businesses like Atwoods consider parking an essential part of their business plan and also consider the size of the vehicles their customers will utilize. If you drive a pickup or SUV, you’ve doubtless faced the problem of space in parking garages and limited access in some parking lots. There is certainly a need for back-up cameras in any vehicle as even sporty models are “made to be seen in, not see out of.” As urban planners work to accommodate

more cars, are we ignoring the big picture? I know that Americans have long enjoyed the mobility and convenience that private car ownership provides and many seniors consider it a blow to their independence when they can no longer drive. My mother chose to relinquish her license at 80, but many continue to drive long after that. Mass transit has long mandated in Europe and turn-of-the-19th-century American cities street car lines, whose vestigial tracks may still remain. But that was a slower-paced, less frantic world. In earlier times, we made a grocery list and waited until Saturday to do the shopping. We can’t continue to build more expressways and parking lots while ignoring the real problem: “Too much smoke, too much gas, too little green, and it’s going fast.” – Lynyrd Skynyrd

Random Thoughts

Another golf story – Part 2

By Roger Hardaway Sewsunker “Papwa” Sewgolum was a South African of Indian descent who grew up to be a world-renowned golfer. Born in one of his country’s segregated slums, Sewgolum never had a golf lesson. Early in his career, he won several tournaments in South Africa that were for non-whites only. He also won some of the international tournaments in which he was allowed to compete. But not until 1963 – when he was 34 years old – was Sewgolum allowed to play in a tournament in his country against white opponents. His victory in the 1963 Natal Open highlighted the unfairness of South Africa’s apartheid system. If an Indian could become a great golfer, it followed that people of all minorities could be positive contributors to society in a variety of professions. The results of the 1963 tournament were also an embarrassment to the white-dominated political system that had discriminated against Sewgolum since the day he was born. But it was what happened after the tournament was over that made headlines around the

world and underscored the inherent immorality of South Africa’s apartheid system of segregation. As the Natal Open was ending, it began to rain. The only logical thing for tournament officials to do was move the trophy-presentation ceremony indoors. But the course at which the tournament had been played, the Durban Country Club, was segregated. Not only did the club not have any minority members, it would not allow nonwhites to enter its clubhouse. That restriction applied to everyone – including the tournament winner! Consequently, Sewgolum had to stand outside in the rain while tournament officials were inside the clubhouse out of the elements. Those officials handed the trophy to Sewgolum by passing it to him through an open window. A photo of the presentation ceremony was published in newspapers around the world. Criticism of the South African system of white supremacy increased from all over the globe. This shameful event is a good example of how sometimes things that aren’t supposed to be political can end up having a huge political impact.

Quitting smokeless tobacco New weatherstripping Dear Annie: After many years of using smokeless tobacco, I’d like to quit. Are there any effective measures one can take to beat this highly addictive habit? I use the kind of tobacco that comes in a can, and it goes wherever I go. It wakes me up in the morning demanding attention. I believe it is partially responsible for my high blood pressure. My dentist has concerns for my teeth and gums. I mentioned my tobacco use to my doctor, but he couldn’t give me a response that would be an effective way to quit. I see commercials on TV for a drug that helps smokers, but I don’t know whether it would be helpful for those of us who dip. I, and the many others with this problem, would appreciate any advice. – Not a Baseball Player Dear Not: Smokeless tobacco is also called chew, snuff, spit and oral tobacco, but it still can cause cancer, just like cigarettes, along with other health problems such as tooth loss and gum disease. While some nicotine replacement therapy (patches, lozenges, sprays) can be helpful, not all work for smokeless tobacco. Some people prefer alternative medicine (hypnosis, acupuncture, herbal treatments, etc.), although studies are inconclusive as to its effectiveness. The American Cancer Society offers a Guide to Quitting Smokeless Tobacco on its website (cancer.org) and assistance by phone at 1-800-227-2345. Here are additional resources: Nico-

Good luck. Dear Annie: I recently lost my driving privileges and have been getting a ride from a co-worker twice a week. I am right on her way to the office, so it’s not at all out of her way. This co-worker recently blindsided me with a demand to pay her gas money. I don’t feel I should pay her, because she already drives there. Do you think I should pay? How much? I already pay another person to take me to and from work on the other three days because it is definitely out of the way for him. I can’t afford to pay a second person. I work the third shift and am the main provider for my family of five. – Broke in Ohio Dear Broke: Anyone who picks you up regularly deserves to be given something for gas and wear-and-tear on the car. She is doing you a favor, and it’s starting to cause some resentment, which means she could stop offering you a lift and you’d have to make other arrangements. You do not have to offer her as much as the co-worker who must travel a greater distance, but perhaps you could fill up the tank once in a while. Ask her what

she thinks is fair, tell her what you can afford, and try to work out a compromise. Dear Annie: I had tears in my eyes reading the letter from “Lonely in California.” It was a sad and depressing life taking care of young children while my husband would rather be drinking with his buddies. Over the years, I saw a couple of divorce lawyers, but I was afraid to be on my own. And my husband made it clear that I could leave, but not with the kids. So I stayed in this miserable mess. This summer, after he got completely wasted every day, my worst nightmare happened. He was so drunk that he didn’t realize he was sexually assaulting our 7-year-old daughter. I got a restraining order, filed for divorce and am now on my own. It’s scary, but I have so much peace in my heart. I still feel like a failure as a mother for allowing my kids to live with this man, but I know I will get past this, and in the end, leaving will be worth it. – Relieved in Massachusetts Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Dear Margo

When the BF is a switch-hitter

Dear Margo: I’ve been living with a guy for nine months, and it’s fair to say I am the nosy type. Past relationships have made me not trust anyone. My guy and I are very serious and discussing marriage. But every time he’s gone, I snoop, and if you look, you shall find. Seven months into the relationship, I am looking at his online chat logs. I am reading a conversation between him and a female when he tells this person to start talking to him on his other IM account, one I never knew he had. Well, he has another account where it says he is a cross-dresser and bisexual. I am very confused at this point because this is the man I want to marry. I look through his logs and e-mails and find that he’s been talking to other men and women about meeting with them to have sex. He also has an online friend (female) who knows all about his “other life.” So I contact this woman, and she sends me all the conversations they’d had. He talks about how he loves me, hasn’t cheated on me yet, but wants to have sex with men. I begin to freak out thinking the man I love is gay. So I confront him, and he tells me that he has been in four sexual relationships with males, just out of curiosity. This all happened before he met me, so then he decided he wasn’t gay. He has started counseling, doesn’t use the computer anymore, and is doing everything he can to prove that he loves me and wants to be with me. So I guess my ques-

tion is, what do I do? I love him, but I am not sexually attracted to him anymore. Every time we start to become intimate, I need to stop, because all I can think about is him with another man. – Confused and in Love Dear Con: It is admirable that this chap has gone into counseling and forsworn the computer (something I would be incapable of), but the fact remains that there’s a bisexual underpinning to his sexuality. The deal breaker, as far as I am concerned, is that you are totally turned off. Those images are unlikely to go away. – Margo, unhappily Dear Margo: I work in a stressful, fast-paced call center, and I enjoy reading on breaks and at lunchtime. That gives me roughly an hour to read each day. With the constant din of call takers and managers, I value my reading time so that I may have a respite and some peace. It’s a release for me to immerse myself in a good book, even for a few minutes. My co-workers, however, can’t seem to respect my need for alone time, as they blatantly interrupt me or even sit down at my table and start a conversation.

I do have friends at work and consider myself social, but I’d rather spend my break constructively as opposed to discussing office gossip. How do I politely deflect my co-workers and not seem anti-social? – Bookish and Annoyed Dear Book: Like you, I try to read when it’s possible, even when I’m not at home. People don’t usually intrude, however, because I am either standing in a line or in an office waiting room. In your case, where you know these people, it’s a little sticky. Amazing, isn’t it, that people see someone reading a book and then sit down and start talking? This just tells you that some people are so dense that light bends around them. What you should say, in a friendly way, the next time this happens, is something like, “I hope you’ll excuse me. I’m using my break to relax, and I do it by reading.” – Margo, restoratively Dear Margo is written by Margo Howard, Ann Landers’ daughter. All letters must be sent via the online form at www.creators.com/ dearmargo. Due to a high volume of e-mail, not all letters will be answered.

might help leaky window

By Tom and Ray Magliozzi Dear Tom and Ray: The rear window of my 2000 Ford F-150 leaks from the top. Can I just have the seal/molding replaced, or should I have the whole window redone? And if so, can I use a window I find at the junkyard? – Deb TOM: Well, if you want the cheap solution, Deb, get one of those sailor’s rain hats, with the flap that goes down the back of your neck. That’ll at least keep the rain from running down your shirt and into your shorts. RAY: But a better solution would be to replace the weatherstripping. Unless the glass is cracked, there shouldn’t be any need to replace the window itself. TOM: But to replace the weatherstripping, the window has to be removed. So you just need to go to a mechanic or an auto-glass shop and tell them you want the window reinstalled with new weatherstripping. RAY: They’ll pop it out, replace the old, dried-out, cracked weatherstripping with fresh new stuff, and put your window back in. If you’re right, and that’s where the water is

coming from, that should take care of it. TOM: And you definitely want new weatherstripping. It’s fine to get rear-window glass at a junkyard if you ever need it, but there’s no reason to buy old weatherstripping. RAY: And besides, when you’re driving a 13-year-old truck, you really can’t risk parking at a junkyard. It’s just too easy for your truck to be mistaken for fresh “inventory.” *** Auto repairs can be costly!

Alva rec park board pushes air conditioning for the gym By Lynn L. Martin The December meeting of the Alva Recreational Park board of directors was successful in attracting a quorum. The board failed to make a quorum in November. The rec park board frequently has trouble in getting enough members to attend. The board had to table approving minutes from the October meeting because the clerk has been unable to find her notes in order to prepare the minutes. The financial report revealed that the recreational park is in the best shape of any city entity with cash in the bank of $488,508 and a CD of $200,000. After a few warrants are paid, the total assets are $679,504.39. Current revenue for November is $74,684.31 with AEDA economic development expenditures of $44,156.22, which left a profit of $30,528.09. The recreation center sales tax revenue was $56,468.57. The board reviewed results of a “what to do next” survey that was published in the Newsgram and also distributed to some churches. Dr. Troy Smith said neither method produced very many completed questionnaires. He suggested using an internet service called “Survey Monkey” to see if more responses could be obtained. Board Chairman Michelle Mapes said she thought they had already put considerable effort in getting community feedback and felt they had enough. The rest of the board agreed. They also discussed the idea of hiring a firm to create a strategic plan. A committee of Greg Glass, Troy Smith and Michelle Mapes will look at the idea of hiring someone to complete a strategic plan. Smith distributed a tabulation of the suggested projects from the survey: • Picnic/table shade areas • More/better bleachers and seating areas • Walking loop • Bike trail • More/better concession areas • Water park/splash pad/swimming pool (depending on what the

city does with the old pool) • Batting cages • Putting green/mini golf • Dog park • Skate park • Climbing wall • Tennis courts • Frisbee golf • Driving range • Separate Pee Wee football areas Air Conditioning Discussion The board took no action on any of the above suggestions. Instead, their strong interest was in getting air-conditioning installed in the gym. Greg Glass and Michelle Mapes both complained to Joe Don Dunham, the city manager, about the slow pace of the project. He said that he talked with Meyers Engineering this week. The fellow who was supposed to visit on Tuesday called in sick, so they will have a mechanical engineer to visit next Monday. Dunham said Meyers Engineering had the original building plans and was reviewing them. Greg Glass wondered why a trip to Alva was necessary since they already had the plans. Dunham explained they would like to make an onsite inspection before making a proposal. Dunham said the onsite visit will

produce specifications and as soon as he receives the specifications, he’ll send them out for bids. The rec park board informally agreed that they did not meet to review the specs since the City Council has to approve the project anyway. Manager Courtney Nesseralla said she had been holding up sending invitations for the summer MAYB tournament because if she could say the gym was air-conditioned, it would greatly improve participation. Rec Park Reports at City Council The city manager said the city council had asked him to arrange for a representative to give a recreational park report at each city council meeting. He said an item on the city council agenda will list a rec report board. Dunham said, “For this board, the person reporting would be the council member who is on this board.” The members said it is Steve Valencia, but after the meeting said he hadn’t attended the last three or four meetings. City Manager Dunham said it was up to the rec park board to name someone to make the reports to the city council meetings.

Goldbugs win sixth straight By Leslie Nation After losing their season opener, the Goldbugs have won their sixth straight, defeating the Trojans in a rematch after facing them in the semifinals of the Oklahoma Bible Academy (OBA) Prep Classic. OBA was the Goldbugs’ toughest match in the OBA Prep, but Alva was ready to come out with their second win against the Trojans. OBA started out with the lead off – a jumper from Adam Eaton – but a three-point play by Riley Hess tied it up and took the lead at 3-2. After a three-pointer from Trevor Johnson at the 3:58 minute-mark, the Goldbugs went on a 9-0 run before Camden Roggow put up a buzzer beater from three-point range. It was 13-9 in Alva’s favor at the end of the first. A foul shot from OBA started off the second, but it was a full two minutes before Alva’s Lane Madsen answered with back-to-back jumpers to put the Goldbugs up by seven. At the end of the half the Goldbugs were up 25-17. OBA and Alva battled throughout the third, but by the end of the period Alva had increased their lead to 14 points. By the end of the fourth, the Goldbugs had kept an 11-point lead to win 52-41. Alva shot 46.8 percent in field goals, hitting 22 of 47, and were 71.4 percent at the foul line. The Goldbugs had three that broke double-digits with Johnson and Hess tying for team-high at 14 points. Madsen followed to add his 10 points. Hess also led in rebounds with 14. OBA was only 34 percent from the field, making 16 of 47, and 42.7 percent in foul shots. Their leading

Ladybugs crush the Lady Trojans 61-12 By Leslie Nation fore the break and faced Oklahoma The first quarter was Alva’s The Alva Ladybugs headed to Bible Academy (OBA) for an easy lowest scoring period of the game their final road game of the year be- away-victory on Dec. 17. as they scored 12 to OBA’s 4. But that was enough for the Ladybugs to build on an eight-point lead before the half. It wasn’t until a three-pointer from Jaden Hobbs at the 5:11 minute-mark that Alva really started to run away with the lead. Going on an 18-0 run to end the second quarter, the Ladybugs led by whopping 27-point margin at 33-6 hitting four long-range threes in that quarter alone. It only got worse for OBA as

they went into a major drought in the third quarter going zero for nine from the field. The Ladybugs increased their lead to 41 points by the end of the third to give them plenty of cushion. For the fourth quarter, head coach Eric Smith of the Alva Ladybugs started to send his bench onto the court to finish out the rest of the game. Though OBA was able to get six more points on the board, Alva finished with a 49-point win over the Lady Trojans. This was their biggest margin win for the season. The Ladybugs shot 55.6 percent,

hitting 25 of 45 from the field, and were 44.4 percent for foul shots, going to the line only three times. Hobbs was the leading scorer with a game-high of 20 points. Hobbs was seven of 12 on field goals and drained five of her six from beyond the arc. Two other Ladybugs hit double digits, as Nicole Ritter followed with 12 points and Whitney Randall with 10. Freshman Jordan Shiever hit a career-high of eight points all in the fourth quarter. OBA was 14.7 percent from the

Accidents

Boulevard and stopped to make a right turn into the west entrance at Pizza Hut. Jones stopped on the highway, waiting for the semi to turn out of the parking lot. Skubal, driver of the semi, said he waved Jones on thinking she could make the turn into the parking lot but Jones remained stopped. Jones decided she would drive ahead and turn into the east exit of Pizza Hut and pulled forward. Skubal meanwhile decided Jones was going to remain stopped so he pulled out into the east bound lane of Oklahoma Boulevard, striking Jones’ vehicle. Both vehicles had been moved when Alva Assistant Police Chief Ben Orcutt arrived to investigate the scene. Hit and Run with Fence A vehicle hit the playground fence at Longfellow Elementary School on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 12:45 p.m. and then drove away. Alva K9 Police Officer Patrick Hawley investigated. He found the playground fence was damaged and saw what appeared to be pieces of a white vehicle on the ground. Children were playing on the

school playground at the time of the incident. Hawley noted there were many different descriptions of the type and color of the vehicle. Parked Vehicle Struck Doris Blue, 92, of Alva told police she was traveling south on Fifth Street and going around a parked vehicle when she struck its back left bumper. The collision occurred at 3:30 p.m. on Dec. 13 at 817 Fifth St. Blue’s vehicle took the brunt of the collision with damage to the front right fender, tire and wheel and on the passenger side door. The parked vehicle, a 2013 Ford owned by Exterran Energy Solutions of Houston, Texas, had minor to no damage to the back left bumper. Blue said she attempted to make contact with the vehicle’s driver but received no answer at the residence. She eventually left to get her vehicle fixed. Alva K9 Officer Patrick Hawley also had no success in finding the pickup driver. However, another Exterran Energy Solutions worker drove by and said the driver was not there but the company would like a report done for their records.

Sweet revenge: Rangers win at Cameron NWOSU Sports Information LAWTON – A month isn’t a terribly long time, but what a difference it made for the Northwestern Oklahoma State men in their rematch with non-conference foe Cameron. Given 35 days to stew over an ugly, 20-point home loss suffered during the season’s opening week, the Rangers looked much more in sync Wednesday night in handing the Aggies a 57-51 setback. T’aries Taylor and Adrian Motley scored 11 points each to lead the way. Motley also grabbed a team-high eight rebounds. Northwestern (4-5) also benefited from some reinforcements. Neither 6-foot-7 center Jesse Smith, nor senior Eze Akwari played in the first go-around with Cameron, but both were back in tow for the rematch. Akwari – who missed the first eight games – returned to the starting lineup and played 22 minutes, finishing with five rebounds. He had difficulty finding the flow on offense, taking just two shots, but he delivered one of the game’s biggest defensive plays in the final minute. After Motley’s free throws nudged Northwestern in front 5351, Akwari picked off a pass along the baseline. Seconds later, Bruce Wright nailed a turnaround 15 footer to push the lead to 55-51 with just under a minute remaining in the game. The Rangers held Cameron (45) to 31.6 percent from the field and were especially strong during crunch time. Cameron missed all

six of its shots and turned the ball over twice in the final two minutes of the game. Taylor and Brandon Wooley each hit one of two free throws in the remaining seconds to further pad the margin. Northwestern shot a seasonbest 48.8 percent and enjoyed a 3525 edge on the glass. The Rangers have out-rebounded their last three opponents by an average of 11 per game. The teams took turns with the lead through the first 12 minutes of play. Save for a quick 41 seconds during which Cameron enjoyed a 5-2 lead, the teams were never separated by more than a point in either direction. That trend came to a stop at the 8:11 mark of the first half when Craig Foster kicked off a run of four straight points to give the Aggies a 15-10 advantage. Foster scored 12 of his 21 points in the opening half, including a three-pointer with six seconds left to send Cameron into the locker room up 27-20. Northwestern turned the ball over each of it first two possessions coming out of the intermission, allowing Cameron to extend its lead to 11 points. Things hadn’t brightened much by the 15-minute mark, when Foster knocked down another triple to keep the margin at double figures, yet that’s precisely when momentum began to change. Cameron turned the ball over on backto-back trips, and Northwestern pieced together an 11-0 run to regain the lead.

After a Motley free throw, Ryan Radcliff connected from three. Darrian Dempsey found a lane to the basket and drove for two. Moments later, Smith posted and scored Wooley’s layup tied it with 10:29 to play, and Dempsey connected on a free throw – part of a run of seven-straight possessions in which the Rangers came away with points. The teams sparred the rest of the way. Cameron twice rebuilt its lead to four points, but on both occasions the Rangers quickly rallied to tie. Taylor’s bucket with 3:02 remaining marked the first time that Northwestern had led by more than a point. The 51-49 lead was shortlived. Jonathan Patino answered immediately on the opposite end to knot the game back up at 51. Motley was fouled away from the basket with 2:14 on the clock, and the freshman converted two big free throws. Then came Akwari’s steal, Wright’s elbow jumper and a series of crucial plays that helped the Rangers pull out their third road victory in five tries this year. Northwestern will break for the holidays. Its next action comes at home on Jan. 2 and 4 when Arkansas Tech and Harding come to town.

Longtime City Clerk Wayne Lane was also recognized. His widow, Bettielou Lane, attended the meeting. Wayne Lane resigned earlier in the year just a short time before his death. Although she is still working, Deputy Clerk Joyce Hibbs was recognized for her 27 years of working for the city. Councilmember Scott Brown said, “She has certainly made, for me, coming on this council a lot easier knowing that she was here doing her job diligently for all of us. She was certainly very supportive in my role here.” Mayor Chaffee commented, “What I’ve always found amazing is if I go in and say ‘Do you remember when the council discussed … armadillos?’ in just a matter of a few seconds, she will pull that file,

and there are the minutes of that meeting.” Chaffee said he wasn’t sure where he came up with “armadillos.” “Amazing, thank you so much, Joyce,” Chaffee concluded. Hibbs is currently training Paula Darr to take over her varied duties. Darr handled the council secretarial duty with Hibbs by her side to offer support.
