Snow lifts burn ban in county But drought continues

By Marione Martin The lack of precipitation in Woods County in recent months led the county commissioners to declare a 30-day burn ban on Jan. 20. On Monday, Feb. 10, the commissioners lifted the burn ban temporarily because of the snow on the ground. This will give farmers a chance to burn brush piles safely. On Monday the commissioners will take a look at conditions and decide whether a burn ban should be issued again. Currently four counties in the state are under burn bans. Alfalfa County just east of Woods County is the only northwestern county. The others are Grady, Jefferson and Tillman in the southwest part of the state. You can check on burn bans at www.forestry.ok.gov provided by the Oklahoma Forestry Services. How Dry Are We? With the melting snow on the ground, it may be difficult to believe that northwest Oklahoma is still under drought conditions. At the beginning of 2013, Woods County was listed by the U.S. Drought Monitor in the D4 or exceptional drought category. After decent amounts of rainfall during the spring and summer, Woods County has moved down two categories to the D2 or severe drought designation. A small portion of the northern edge of the county is listed as D1 or moderate drought. The western tier of Oklahoma counties, including the panhandle, is under severe to exceptional drought conditions. The driest part of the state located in the far southwestern corner makes up 2.4 percent of the state land. The areas in the next category, extreme drought, are located in the western edge of Oklahoma from the south up to the edge of Ellis County along with Texas County in the panhandle and small portions of Cimarron and Beaver counties. The monitor lists 10.13 percent of

the state in the extreme category. As might be expected, the areas listed as having no drought are located in the southeastern part of the state. Three months ago on Nov. 12, 2013, just over 50 percent of the state was listed in the no drought category compared to 28.93 percent this week. The drought monitor is updated weekly on Tuesday with figures being released on Thursday. The most recent information on Feb. 11 for the southern and central plains has been released: With the exception of light to moderate snows from the Oklahoma Panhandle northeastward across Kansas, southern Nebraska, and into Missouri and Iowa, and light rain in eastern Texas, little or no precipitation fell on the remainder of the central and southern Plains. Fortunately, normal precipitation totals are relatively low during the winter months, so accumulating deficits were also low. In central and eastern Kansas, where snow amounts were highest (liquid equivalent 0.5 to 1 inch), enough precipitation fell to produce 60-day surpluses from south-central to northeastern Kansas, thus improving drought by one category in south-central and northeastern Kansas.

Elsewhere in Kansas, Nebraska and western Oklahoma, the amounts were lighter or 60- to 90-day shortages still existed, so status-quo was kept. In Texas and southern Oklahoma, with little precipitation occurring and normal levels low, most sections maintained their condition. A few areas, however, did require some deterioration as short-term dryness has begun to impact long-term impacts. This included southeastern Texas (D2 expansion), east-central Texas (D0 increase), southwest Texas (D3 merged), and D3-D4 increase eastward along the Red River where USGS flows are at 7-, 14- and 28day record lows. On a national scale, most of California is in the highest D4 or exceptional drought ranking, the U.S. Drought Monitor says: During the past seven days, the first significant storm of the wet season (since Oct. 1) inundated parts of central California and the northern Sierra Nevada with 6-12 inches of precipitation, with locally up to 15 inches. Although there were shortterm local improvements from this week’s ample precipitation, the long stretch of subnormal precipi-

Airport board may upgrade tractor for snow use By Lynn L. Martin The airport board just managed to have a quorum with three of five members present: Bob Baker, Paul Kinzie and Terry Turner. The city manager and mayor were also in attendance. The results of the meeting were pretty much the same as the last several months: no progress on the instrument approach for the new runway; no decision on a bid for insulation on the maintenance building and not enough bids on modified specifications for an equipment storage structure. One new item on the agenda was consideration of obtaining some type of snow removal equipment. The members first talked

about trading their two-wheeldrive pickup truck for a fourwheel-drive and then purchasing a snow removal blade attachement. As the conversaton progressed, the members decided upgrading the smallish lawn-mowing tractor to a larger tractor with an optional blade might provide more versatility. The snow removal proposal will likely be placed on the agenda next month, along with the regular unresolved items mentioned in the second paragraph. Greg Murray, manager, said that Tom Nutter from Myers Engineering showed up.

tivity, smoking, blood cholesterol and obesity.” Paying attention to your heart health is critical. Consider about every 25 seconds someone in the United States will experience a coronary event, and approximately one person every minute will die from that event, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. So what can you do to cut your risk of heart disease? Watching your weight, staying active and making nutritious food choices are strong first steps. “Maintaining a healthy weight or dropping a few pounds and incorporating at least 30 minutes of physical activity five days a week can help prevent or control type 2 diabetes, as well as positively affect blood cholesterol and blood pressure.” Be sure to eat a variety of foods from each of the food groups, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean proteins and fat-free or low-fat milk and dairy products. Not only are fruits and vegetables full of important vitamins, minerals and fiber, they also are low in calories. Filling up on them will help you manage your weight and blood pressure. Whole grains contain fiber that helps decrease blood cholesterol and leaves you feeling fuller. Also, eating fish at least twice a week, including oily fish that contains omega-3 fatty acids, can lower your risk of coronary artery disease. Further, it is a good idea to cut back on foods high in solid fat, added sugars and salt, a move that could aid your effort to successful manage your weight and blood pressure. Pick foods and drinks with little or no sugar and check food labels for the sodium content of foods you purchase. Use oils rather than solid fats when preparing meals and make major sources of saturated fats only occasional choices. Finally, preventing or controlling your blood pressure and diabetes, drinking alcohol in moderation and abstaining from smoking are other strategies for lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease. For those just starting out on the road to a healthier heart, try using the Dietary Guidelines for Americans or American Heart Association recommendations for an easy-

Think before you bash using social media By Sherrie Benson It has been brought to my attention during the past few weeks how some people use social media to put down or bash individuals serving on city council. It is interesting how some people will say things on social media but they will not pick up the phone and ask questions or attend meetings. If people took the time to get the facts they would know how ignorant and uninformed their comments were. I would like to thank those who take the time to serve on city council, school board, hospital boards, or any other board. Serving is a thankless job and I don’t know why anyone would want to do it. Usually people are not aware of a board until the board does something that the person does not agree with.

Members of the council and boards are informed about what is going on in their organization. They come to meetings prepared and ready to discuss and take action. They are not there to please everyone; they are there to do a job, and that job is to represent the organization. Before anyone uses social media to further their discontent, remember the words to this poem, a favorite of my late father-in-law Don Benson: It’s a knock at yourself when you knock your town. It isn’t your town – it’s you.” If you are not happy with your town or organization, get involved. Be willing to serve. I think Alva is a town where people are working to make it better. Will you be positive and support our town or will you be negative and tear down our town? The choice is yours.

Random Thoughts

The Oregon Trail – Part 1

By Roger Hardaway One of the major themes of U.S. history is the movement of Americans to the west. When English settlers came to the New World beginning in the early 1600s, they established communities along the Atlantic Coast. As the population of these colonies grew, people began moving west in search of new lands to farm. Usually, the westward movement occurred slowly. People only went as far as they had to to find vacant land upon which to live. But when Americans started moving into the Oregon Country (what we today call the “Pacific Northwest”), they had to travel a long distance. The problem was that much of the territory between the settled areas of the United States and Oregon was deemed uninhabitable by people wanting to farm. But beyond those vast lands lay Oregon with good soil, adequate rainfall and a pleasant climate warmed by ocean breezes. Unfortunately, Oregon was roughly 2,000 See Kolumn Page 6 miles from western Missouri – which was the

farthest west settlers had ventured in the early 19th century. As we saw in a previous series of columns, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark gave the United States a claim to Oregon when they visited the area during their famous expedition of 1804-1806. Soon after, fur companies – both American and Canadian – entered the Oregon Country and began a lucrative fur trade with the American Indian inhabitants. Before long, several religious denominations sent missionaries to Oregon to minister to the needs of the Indians and fur company employees. Over time, these missionaries wrote letters to their financial supporters back east, explaining the good works they were doing with the money they were receiving. In those letters, they also mentioned the pleasant climate and agricultural potential of the Oregon Country. Eventually, some of the people who heard of Oregon in this manner decided to move there and try their luck at establishing new lives for themselves and their families. The way to the Oregon Country was the Oregon Trail – as we will see next week in part 2 of this story.

Dear Margo

Happy Valentine’s Day The $40 Mistake By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Readers: Happy Valentine’s Day to one and all, along with our special good wishes to the veterans in VA hospitals around the country. And our particular thanks to those readers who have taken the time to send valentines, visit the vets and volunteer at VA facilities. Bless each and every one of you. Dear Annie: Thirty years ago, my husband’s sister-in-law made a pass at him. They worked at the same place, so when he turned her down, she made his life a living hell. He ended up quitting the job, and we left town. She and my brother-in-law are divorced now, but we see her occasionally at family gatherings. This woman has been hospitalized twice for breakdowns. Most of the family is cordial to her, knowing that a lot of what she did in the past was due to her illness. When her meds are working and she is feeling stable, she reaches out to those she has hurt to make amends. She reached out to my husband, tearfully admitting that she knows she is the reason we left, and has asked for forgiveness. She now thinks everything is just fine. The problem is, she has never reached out to me to apologize for the way she upended my life. She doesn’t know my husband told me what happened. Even after all these years, I have a hard time smiling and pretending everything is hunky-dory.

I have forgiven her, but forgetting is something else, and every time I see her, the old anger comes back. My husband agrees that nothing would be gained by bringing these things up again. Any suggestions for moving past this in a positive way? – Wronged but Silent in Wisconsin Dear Wronged: You haven’t actually forgiven her, because her presence still makes you angry. If you believe an apology from her would make a difference, you should calmly let her know. But if you don’t think it matters one way or the other, please consider talking this through with a professional who can help you let go of the past completely. Dear Annie: We have 5-yearold twins. We enrolled them in a swimming class last year. Our son had a bad experience and didn’t want to continue. Our daughter, however, loved it and is doing great. After a couple of months, our son decided to return to classes. (We think he was jealous of his sister’s achievement.) Naturally, he is a level behind her. He now cries and wants to be on her level. We think it would be unfair to hold our daughter back for a while so her brother can catch up. However, if we do hold her back, we can enroll them in semi-private lessons together, saving money as well as transportation time. It also solves the problem of our son’s jealousy. Should we do it? – Swimmers Parents

Dear Parents: As a general rule, it is never a good idea to force kids to accomplish anything at the same speed, moving them forward and back so one isn’t jealous of the other. This is a recipe for a lifetime of craziness and resentment. If you wish to put both children in the same class because you want to save money and time, that is a different issue and certainly justifiable. If the lessons are semi-private, your daughter should be able to move ahead at her own speed, which is not the same as holding her back. Dear Annie: I believe you overlooked something in your response to “Getting This Off My Chest.” The writer stated that he is positive his wife got pregnant intentionally. It takes two! Even if she “assures” him that it is a “safe” time of the month, that’s no guarantee. Other precautions should be taken. It’s a shared responsibility – Albany, N.Y.

Safety-belt laws have changed in the past 40-odd years By Tom and Ray Magliozzi Dear Tom and Ray: Longtime fan and avid listener. I have a 44-year-old two-seat Jaguar E-type sports car. When we were young, we often rode around with three people in the front. I have searched and cannot find any info regarding if that is legal in my home state of Massachusetts. Any idea? – David RAY: Well, even if it were legal, I wouldn’t let you pick ME up! TOM: It’s actually not allowed, David. By federal law, any car manufactured after July 1, 1966, must have one seat belt per seat. And only one person is allowed to

From Page 2

use each seat belt (I never knew we had an epidemic of seat-belt sharing back then). RAY: Pretty much every state now has a law requiring that every person traveling in a car must be wearing the seat belt that corresponds to his or her seat. TOM: I think the only holdout is your neighbor to the north, David: New Hampshire (state motto: Live Free and Then Die By Getting Projected Through Your Windshield). RAY: If your car had been preJuly 1966, and had never HAD seatbelts to begin with, you’d be exempt, and you’d be free to endanger the life of that middle-seat passenger. TOM: So if you want to drive around with three people, it sounds like you’ll have to buy a second 44-year-old Jaguar E-Type and lash

the bumpers together. Which might not be a bad idea, because that doubles your odds on any given day that at least one of them will start.

bed; he wants to sleep with me every night. I am separated from his father, so he thinks he is the “man” of the house and has to take care of me when he is home from school. I am trying to get him back in his own room, but he always comes to mine in the middle of the night. I had never fainted before, and the medical tests show I am fine. How do I tell him that Mom will be OK when he is not around? – Mom with a Concerned Son Dear Mom: It is not in the scheme of things that there be a 6-year-old man of the house, although the child’s concern for you is understandable. Had his father still lived at home and the little boy found you, he most likely would be responding in exactly the same way. You have to reassure him, and it will take time, that the trauma he experienced was a one-time occurrence. When he asks whether you’ll be OK, reinforce the idea that your doctor said it was unlikely to happen again and that tests show you are healthy. When he wanders into your room at night, walk him back to his bed and sit with him for a few minutes, telling him that now that he knows you are fine, he can go back to sleep. Repetition of this routine, in time, will reassure him and diminish his need to check on you. His reaction is entirely normal for his age, and he sounds like a sweet little boy. – Margo, gradually Dear Margo is written by Margo Howard, Ann Landers’ daughter.

Dear Margo: My niece had always loved dolls as a little girl. I adore my niece, and a few years ago, when she was 8 or 9, I gave her two handmade dolls for her birthday. I put a lot of time, energy, money and love into those dolls. A few weeks ago, her mother called to tell me they were having a garage sale, and that “Marilyn” had outgrown the dolls and they were going in the sale. My S-I-L (my niece’s mother) thought I might want the dolls back. Although I was a little (OK, a lot) hurt that my niece didn’t value the dolls enough to keep them, I was, nevertheless, grateful that I was given the opportunity to get them back instead of having them sold to strangers. However, when I went to pick up the dolls, I was told that since they’d easily bring $20 apiece in the garage sale, I should pay fair market value. (I paid at least $100 just for materials, but that isn’t the point.) I forked over the $40 to get the dolls back, but I can’t get over this resentment. Please help me make sense of this. I don’t like this feeling I’m left with. – Raggedy Aunt Dear Rag: Two words come to mind: chintzy and insensitive. The mother, if not the kid, was kinda dense to ignore your feelings and the fact that the dolls were a labor of love. To nickel and dime a relative is pretty cheap, and I hope she got a lot for the extra 40 bucks she made. One thing she lost was the good feeling between you, and should she notice the relationship is not what it once was, I would be open with her as to the reason. – Margo, disenchantedly Dear Margo: I fainted about a month ago, hitting my head on the kitchen counter. This caused a major gash on my scalp. It bled quite a bit – more than a pint of blood. My son, age 6, found me and had his 10-year-old sister call 911. I am fine now, but he keeps asking me if I am OK. He worries so very much. He won’t sleep in his own

The Burlington Kindergarten class celebrates the 100th day of their school year.

100 Days of Fun and Learning

By Vanessa Garvie The Kindergarten class celebrated 100 days of school on Tuesday, January 28. The students

were busy reading to accumulate 100 books read for the day. They were busy the entire day doing 100 day activities. The best part of the

day was when they took a picture of ourselves and then used an app to make themselves look like they were 100 years old. The students giggled and giggled at their new look; however, their teacher will be trying out some new night cream!

By Richard Fischer There were two seniors honored at Burlington’s Senior Night, held on February 8. Those seniors were Heather Armbruster and Carter Stewart. Heather is the 17-year-old daughter of Scott and Allison Armbruster. Heather participates in basketball, FFA, band, vocal, cheer-

provided the data for the FAA to design the instrument landing approach. Turns out they need to reshoot some of the survey points because the survey has to match the satellite within half an inch. Nutter was unable to reshoot the points on the day he appeared because the snow was starting. Fuel and oil sales for the month were $14,931. 100LL totaled 8,876.97 and Jet A was $5,950.30.

City Manager Joe Don Dunham reminded the board that a proposal will be brought to them to bring the airport within the city limits. He is wanting to “square up” the town’s city limits to the south and east. By getting the airport board’s approval, that will be sufficient land to carry the entire area since they comprise more than 50 percent of the land area proposed.

Northwestern summer science academy to explore benefits of human-animal interaction Registration is now open to Oklahoma students who will be in the ninth or 10th grades in the fall of 2014 for the annual Summer Science Academy at Northwestern Oklahoma State University. The deadline to apply is April 15, and the academy is June 1-7 at Northwestern’s Enid campus. Up to 30 students will be selected to attend “Exploring the Benefits of Human-Animal Interaction” for free, thanks to a grant provided by the Oklahoma State Board of Regents. This academy uses animals as tools to teach scientific concepts, mathematics and enhanced health care for humans. The students will apply their learning through hands-on experiences, workshops and live human-animal interactions by visiting assisted living centers, child care centers and par-

ticipating in a “reading to dogs” program. They also will develop innovative and creative ways of solving environmental and wildlife issues by observing science in action during trips to the Oklahoma City Zoo and the Oklahoma Aquarium. Further, they will participate in other interactive, therapeutic activities in the community using service animals in human educational, emotional and healthcare fields. Students will stay in campus housing provided by Northern Oklahoma College, will have 24hour adult supervision and will be provided three meals a day. Questions should be directed to Dr. Sherril Stone, the academy’s director and associate professor of psychology at Northwestern, at smstone@nwosu.edu or 580-2133119 in Enid. Stone said the selec-

tion process is competitive, and she will try to notify all students of their status by April 30. For students without an email address, please provide a phone number. All students must stay in university housing as there will be no commuter options. The application form is a Word document and a link to it may be found online at www.nwosu.edu/ summer-science-academy. Besides the application form, students will need to include a one page, typed statement on why they want to attend this academy, as well as a letter of recommendation from a teacher, preferably a math or science teacher. All items may be emailed to Stone or printed out and mailed to her at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, Psychology Department, 2929 E. Randolph, Enid, OK 73701.

Sen James Inhofe is expected to fly into the Alva Regional Airport about 10 a.m. today (Feb. 14) where he will meet with the public. He plans to attend the town hall meeting on CNG at 11:30 a.m. at the Northwest Technology Center in Alva.

By Kristi Eaton OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A historic aircraft listed on the National Register of Historic Places relocated Thursday from Oklahoma to a museum in Texas so more people will have the chance to see it up close. Several dozen employees with the Federal Aviation Administration turned out Thursday morning to watch the DC-3 N34 take off from FAA facilities in Oklahoma City for its new home at the Texas Air & Space Museum in Amarillo. “I’m happy to see it get to someplace where somebody — kids can come back on board and we can do what it’s meant to be. People can learn about flight inspection,” said Thomas Solinski, a reliability engineer with the FAA who has been responsible for taking care of the aircraft for the past decade. The aircraft was built in 1945 at Tinker Air Force Base for the U.S. Navy. In 1956, the Civil Aeronautics Administration took it over and refurbished it for its flight inspection program. The Navy officially gave ownership to the FAA in 1966, Solinski said. It was one of 50 such aircrafts the FAA used to certify navigation equipment. “For a while it was a school-

house here in Oklahoma City. You learned to be a flight inspection technician, you came here to Oklahoma City, you flew this airplane,” Solinski said. All the other DC-3s have been retired, and the N34 became the last one in the FAA’s fleet. In the 1980s, the plane was refurbished again and used for airshow work before it was retired in 1995. But retirement didn’t last. In 2003, the plane was used to commemorate the 100th anniversary of flight and a few years later, Oklahoma centennial celebrations. “For a lot of those little towns, we were the only thing they did,” Solinski said. The events allowed thousands of people to see the plane as it traveled all over the United States, said Michael Ahern, who has flown the aircraft since 1988. The last major flight the plane took was in 2010, during the 75th anniversary of the first DC-3 flight. Since then, it’s been off limits for flight enthusiasts. The aircraft was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997, and one of the criteria for that listing is that it’s available for the public to view, Solinski said. “And we can’t do that out here at the airport,” he added. 2013 FORD MUSTANG 2003 MERCURY GRAND MARQUIS 2012 FORD F150 SC 2011 LINCOLN MKS 2011 FORD ESCAPE XLT 2008 LINCOLN MKZ 2003 CHEVROLET S10 2011 FORD TAURUS LTD 2008 TOYOTA RAV4 2006 FORD FOCUS 2000 BUICK CENTURY 2008 CHEVROLET UPLANDER 2005 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN 2010 LINCOLN MKX FWD 2005 FORD F150 CC 2012 LINCOLN MKX FWD 2011 FORD EDGE SE 1999 CHEVROLET VENTURE 2006 LINCOLN ZEPHYR 2012 FORD FUSION SEL 2005 FORD FOCUS 2012 FORD EXPLORER 2012 FORD EXPLORER 2012 FORD FOCUS SEL 2012 FORD F250 CC 2010 LINCOLN NAVIGATOR 2013 FORD EXPLORER 2002 FORD F150 SC 2001 LINCOLN LS 2008 FORD F150 SC 2013 F150 CC 2004 HONDA CR-V 2004 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 2007 TOYOTA CAMRY 2012 NISSAN FRONTIER 2012 FORD FUSION SE 2012 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 2013 FORD ESCAPE SE 2013 FORD EDGE SEL 2012 LINCOLN MKZ 2013 FORD EDGE LIM 2013 FORD TAURUS LTD 2013 FORD EXPEDITION 2009 CHRYSLER TOWN & COUNTRY 2005 BUICK LESABRE 2008 HYUNDAI SONATA 2000 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX 2013 FORD EXPLORER 2013 FORD ESCAPE SE 2011 FORD EXPLORER 2013 LINCOLN MKX AWD

Goldbugs hold onto the lead to defeat Fairview 47-40 By Leslie Nation The Alva Goldbugs faced off with the Fairview Yellow Jackets for the second time this season on the road Tuesday evening. In their last meeting, it came down to the final seconds as the Jackets ended Alva’s six-game win streak, defeating the Goldbugs 51-52 before the Christmas break. This time, the Goldbugs were ready to return the favor on Fairview’s home court – the Echodome. The Yellow Jackets started with the early lead, but a pair of treys from Ty Hooper (#3) and Jeremiah Bozeman (#22) gave Alva a one-point lead with just under six minutes in the first quarter. Fairview played catch up for the rest of the game as the Goldbugs went on a 10-2 run to get a nine-point lead to close out the first. It was a low scoring second quarter for both teams, but Alva increased their lead to 15 points, holding the Yellow Jackets to just two points for the next eight minutes as the score showed 24-9. Ryan Balwdin (#14) helped spring the Fairview Yellow Jackets forward to close the gap. Hitting only one three in the first half, Baldwin drained three from downtown. Fairview outscored Alva in the third 10-18 to trail by just seven with the score at 34-27. Fairview came to within two points of the Goldbugs’ lead with 6:33 left in the game, but Alva held their position to win 47-40.

Alva had two to hit doubledigits with Lane Madsen (#20) leading the way with 14 points and six rebounds. Madsen shot 60 percent, making six of 10 from the field. Hooper put up 10 points draining four of seven. Trevor Johnson (#5) pulled down six rebounds with five assists and Riley Hess (#13) had six rebounds. Baldwin had the game-high with 16 points along with eight rebounds, shooting 41.7 percent. Four of his five field goals were from beyond the arc. Brett Fast (#10) eclipsed double digits with 11 points, hitting just 26.7 percent. Alva hit 17 of 43 from the field, putting up a 39.5 shooting percentage to Fairview’s 22.7 percent. Late treys and a 78.9 percent from the foul line (15 of 19) helped the Yellow Jackets stay in the game, but Alva turned the ball over just nine times to Fairview’s 13. The Goldbugs (17-5) end their regular season this Friday against Pioneer-Pleasant Vale on the road following the girls’ game. After, Alva will prepare for the playoffs as they receive a bye through Districts to advance to Regionals to face Luther or Oklahoma Christian School on Feb. 27 at 8 p.m. Score By Period Team 1st 2nd 3rd 4th F Goldbugs 16 8 10 13 47 Fairview 7 2 18 13 40

Ladybugs get revenge over the Lady Jackets By Leslie Nation In the last meeting between Alva and Fairview, the Ladybugs lost by five points in the finals of the Wheat Capital Tournament. This time, Alva was looking for revenge and to defeat the Lady Yellow Jackets on the road Tuesday evening. In the Wheat Capital Tournament the Ladybugs had a low score of just two points in the first quarter. Alva was able to pick it up at the end of the half to get a short lead, but Fairview pulled out the win. In this rematch, Alva set the pace for the Lady Jackets, holding them to nine points apiece in the first and second quarters while the Ladybugs scored a total of 34 to get a 16-point lead going into the half. Sadie Mason (#30) was the first on the board for Fairview with a layup, but Morgan Shiever (#10) answered with a three and Alva’s first lead. The Ladybugs’ point guard, Jaden Hobbs (#23), hit back-toback jumpers and a three to keep a five-point lead with over three minutes to go in the first. The Ladybugs closed the first quarter out with a nine-point lead and the score

at 18-9. With points only coming from Mason and Baylor Reese (#13) for Fairview in the second quarter, Alva increased their lead to 16 points and put the score at 34-18. In the second half, the Lady Jackets picked up the pace and were outscored by only one point in the third and fourth, but the damage was done. Alva picked up their revenge in the Echodome against Fairview, winning 55-37. The game-high scorer was Hobbs with 26 points along with seven rebounds and five assists. Hobbs hit 10 of 19, shooting 52.6 percent from the field. Two other Ladybugs contributed in the double digits with Lora Riley (#15) getting second team-high with 11 points. Shiever put up 10 points with all three of her field goals coming from three-point range. Bailey Forell (#3) pulled down an impressive 12 rebounds to go along with her five points of the night. The Ladybugs hit 19 of 45 from the field for 42.2 percent, but their 10 threes out of 21 boosted them past Fairview with a 47.6 percent-

age from beyond the arc. Alva outrebounded the Lady Jackets 31-16 with 10 of those rebounds on offense. The bulk of the scoring for Fairview came from their two post players – Reese and Mason. The team-high for the Lady Jackets was Reese with 16 points and five rebounds followed by Mason with 13. Fairview hit 14 of 39 for a 35.9 shooting percentage and only hit three from downtown out of 16. The Alva Ladybugs (21-1) end their regular season this Friday on the road against Pioneer-Pleasant Vale scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Ending the season, the Ladybugs will receive a bye through District playoffs to automatically advance them to Regionals. The Ladybugs’ first playoff game will be against Luther or Oklahoma Christian School Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m. Score By Period Team 1st 2nd 3rd 4th F Ladybugs 18 16 11 10 55 Fairview 9 9 10 9 37

Three Rangers grab all-tournament team honors over weekend

NWOSU Sports Information STEPHENVILLE, Texas – After a stellar 3-1 weekend at the TexAnn Softball Invitational, Northwestern Oklahoma State was rewarded more with three all-tournament selections: Kellie Mason, Shyanne Nichols and Shelby Anderson, who was named tournament MVP. Mason came through with two big wins for the Rangers on the mound against host team Tarleton State and cross-state rival Northeastern State. Mason threw a complete game against the TexAnns, and boasted a 2.33 ERA over the two starts, along with 13 strikeouts.

Due to the two home runs, .429 batting average and a .49 ERA, Anderson grabbed tournament MVP honors. The Arkansas native also started in the circle in two games for Northwestern and came in relief in another. She only allowed her opponents to bat .192 while striking out seven batters.

Rangers split games with Northwest Missouri State CANYON, Texas – Northwestern Oklahoma State redeemed itself in game two of the double header against Northwest Missouri State in a 3-1 victory after taking a lump in the first game 17-2. Northwest Missouri State put an early five-spot on the Rangers in the top of the first inning and didn’t let up from there, scoring 12 more runs to close out game one. The Rangers came out in the second game a different team, taking their fourth win of the season and redeeming themselves from the rough first game. Jeff Martin was a bright spot for the Ranger squad, going three for three with an RBI in the first game and five for six on the day. The Bearcats jumped on starting pitcher Michael Morales early and eventually knocked him out of the game in just one and two-thirds of an inning of work. Six more runs crossed the plate for Northwest Missouri before the first crossed for the Rangers in the third inning when freshman Logan Porter belted a single to left center to score Colten Dickerman from third. Three straight outs would end the inning for the Rangers with two left on base. The Bearcats scored six more in the fourth to make it a 17-1 game on three hits, four walks and two hit batsmen. The Rangers would plate one more run in the bottom of the seventh, but it wouldn’t be enough to overcome the deficit. Game two featured a defensive battle with only four runs crossing the plate and a combined 10 hits by both teams. Joe Coto took the hill for the Rangers and pitched a complete game, recording five strikeouts in his second win of the season along with four three-up three-down innings. The first inning for Northwestern in the second game was much different than in the first game in that it was a three-up three-down half inning on defense. The Rangers scored two runs in the bottom of the first on three hits, with one coming off the bat of Jeff Martin who went three for three in game one. Three of Coto’s five Ks came in the second inning when he struck out the first three batters he faced, but the Bearcats got him for a couple of hits in the second, leading to their first run of the game. Northwestern (4-1) put one more run on the board in

the third, which would turn out to be the final run in the game, resulting in their fourth win of the young season.

Lady Rangers crumble late in the second By Leslie Nation The Northwestern Oklahoma State Lady Rangers looked to make a sweep of their series with Southeastern Oklahoma State Thursday night, returning home to try and end a three-game losing streak. The Lady Rangers already faced off with the Savage Storm once this season on Jan. 11, giving Southeastern one of their two losses at home in Durant. Fortunately they faced a team that was only 3-6 on the road. Late Turnovers from Southeastern Help Northwestern The Lady Rangers started out with an early five-point lead for the first half, but the Savage Storm closed the gap and stole the lead on a 6-0 run. With the score at 5-6 and just five minutes ticked off the play clock, Kierra Gilmore (#2) stripped the ball away and found Dierra Gilmore (#3) for the fast break layup. Not 30 seconds later, Relina Johnson (#42) followed that with an open trey to put the score at 10-6. Northwestern got as much as a four-point lead, but Southeastern fought right back to tie it up at 14 with under 10 minutes to go before the half. The Lady Rangers had an answer to get the upper hand as Emily Eaton (#10) found Michaela Yu (#25) for the turnaround jumper. That started Northwestern’s 7-0 run to get a seven-point lead, but their biggest lead came off an open three from Kayleigh Crowe (#20) to put the score at 26-16 with 7:04 to go in the first.

The Savage Storm turned up the pressure for the Rangers, rallying for an 11-1 run to get another lead at 28-29 and under two minutes on the play clock. With the full court pressure bearing down on the Savage Storm, the Lady Rangers forced turnovers to get back-to-back layups and the lead before halftime with the score at 32-29. Lady Rangers Find an Early Rhythm, but the Savage Storm Bounces Back Kaci Hansen (#14) came out the gate for Northwestern with a long two-point jumper to start the second half. A 9-2 run for the Rangers got back a 10-point lead with just over three minutes off the play clock. The Lady Rangers continued to build their lead to 14 points with 11:13 to go in the game, but the Savage Storm began a huge rally that would give them the lead. A three-point play from Emily Williams (#24), a wide-open three from Shelby Hill (#11) and backto-back layups from Haley Schaefer (#50) and Kaylie Baxter (#15) helped send Southeastern on an 18-2 rally for the lead. With the score at 55-57 in the Savage Storm’s favor – and less than five minute to play – Jonae Isaac (#22) tied the game up at 57-all. Hansen gave them the push forward, driving through the center lane to bank it off the glass, but the score was tied up at 59-all with two foul shots from Williams. From there it was a battle back

and forth between Northwestern and Southeastern, but a threepointer from Schaefer and two free throws from Williams sealed it for the Savage Storm as the Lady Rangers were unable to give an answer with 10.4 seconds left on the clock. Eaton was able to send up a three before the buzzer, but it bounced off the front just short of the basket. Game Stats Northwestern was led by Hansen with 14 points shooting six of eight from the field to go along with

14 rebounds. Crowe was the only other Ranger to make it into double digits with 10 points along with her 10 rebounds – for a double-double – and five assists. D. Gilmore and Eaton contributed nine points and nine rebounds apiece, and Johnson had eight points with eight rebounds. The Lady Rangers struggled at the line, making only nine of 20 for 45 percent as the Savage Storm hit 24 of 27 for an 88.9 percentage. The game-high scorer was Williams with 19 points to go along

with 14 rebounds. Williams hit 13 of 13 from the free throw line. Schaefer also hit double digits with 15 points and Ronay English (#13) added her nine to Southeastern’s total score.

Rangers finish the Savage Storm 72-69 By Leslie Nation The Northwestern Oklahoma State men’s basketball team faced off with the Southeastern Oklahoma State Savage Storm at Percefull Fieldhouse to complete their sweep after taking them down in Durant 75-67. Southeastern had a 1-7 record on the road and were 4-10 in Great American Conference (GAC) play, but the Rangers have been just 5-9 against GAC opponents. Rangers Get a Late Rally In the First The Savage Storm was the first on the board with a tip by Darius

Harris (#40), but a 7-0 run from Northwestern in the next two minutes put them up by five. A three-pointer from Taylor Smaller (#11) put Southeastern right back within two, and they stayed in pace for most of the half against the Rangers. Late in the first half – with less than 10 minutes before halftime – Northwestern started to extend their lead and pull away. T’aries Taylor (#10) started the Rangers run with an open trey followed by a turnaround jumper from Bruce Wright (#22). With just under six

minutes left in the first, Taylor answered with back-to-back buckets to put the Rangers up by 12 with the score at 30-18. The Savage Storm tried to reduce the gap – and got as close as five points, but the Rangers ended the half on a 7-0 run. Adrian Motley (#15) started them off working his way inside for a layup, followed by a contested three from Darrian Dempsey (#11) to put the score at 37-27. With the shot clock off and 33.7

Plushenko retires after injury at Sochi Olympics By David Pace SOCHI, Russia (AP) — From wild cheers to stunned silence, the Sochi Olympics said goodbye Thursday to one of figure skating’s all-time greats. Evgeni Plushenko, the first figure skater in the modern era to win medals in four Olympics, retired from competitive figure skating shortly after withdrawing from the men’s competition for medical reasons. The Russian said he injured himself during practice on Wednesday, then fell on a triple axel during warmups Thursday. When Plushenko limped out of the arena, the cheering stopped, eventually turning into mild applause. Plushenko’s announcement came hours after an Olympic worker was injured when he was hit by a bobsled near the finish line at the Sanki Sliding Center. He was taken by helicopter to a local

hospital. Six medals were awarded on Day 7 of the Olympics: in slopestyle skiing, cross-country skiing, biathlon, speedskating, short track speedskating and luge. In the first final of the day, the U.S. freestyle skiers swept the podium in slopestyle, with Joss Christensen leading the way in his Olympic debut. Germany completed a sweep of the four luge events by winning the team relay; Justyna Kowalczyk of Poland, skiing with a fractured foot, won gold in the women’s cross-country 10-kilometer classical race; and Li Jianrou of China won gold in 500-meter short track speedskating after all three of her opponents in the final fell. *** FIGURE SKATING: The 31-year-old Plushenko is the only modern-era figure skater to win medals in four different Olympics.

He helped Russia win the team gold over the weekend. He also won figure skating gold in 2006 and silver in 2002 and 2010. Plushenko said he said it felt “like a knife in my back” when he fell on a triple axel during Thursday’s warmups. “I think it’s God saying, ‘Evgeni, enough, enough with skating,’” said Plushenko. In the short program, Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan led with a score of 101.45 The competition concludes Friday with the short program.

The perils of texting By Mark McDonald, pastor of Alva Friends Church I have to confess that when it comes to texting, I’m a real latecomer. I never gave texting much thought until I bought my daughter a cell phone about nine months ago. Up until then I had a trac-phone that I only used for phone calls. Then I realized I didn’t want my daughter texting everyone but ME so I got the same kind of phone for myself. So the texting adventure began. One of the first things I discov-

ered was that when it comes to texting, I’m all thumbs. Not in a good way, either! I think the button I’ve used the most is the delete/backspace. I use it profusely because I’m constantly hitting the wrong letter. It’s a wonder I haven’t worn that button out! But even that pales in comparison to my biggest texting vice: sending messages before they’re ready to be sent. It’s a rare pleasure when someone gets a text message from me that isn’t in two or three parts because I’ve accidentally hit “send” before I intended. It’s one thing when you can laugh it off with friends, but it can be downright embarassing when I’m texting someone I don’t know well, or I’m texting them on business. And sometimes when you cut off in mid-sentence … well, let’s just say if you don’t hurry up and send the completion you can really convey a message you never intended! My fast trigger on the send button reminds me that when we communicate with others, it’s important what we say or write, and

Alva Friends Church

how we say or write it. The Bible, of course, doesn’t have rules for texting (can you imagine Paul signing off his letters with TTYL?), but it does indicate pitfalls to avoid when communicating. James cautioned about using our tongues wisely because when used carelessly they can damage like an unrestrained fire. Even Jesus warned against careless words that crush and wound and tear apart, saying that “men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.” (Matt. 12:36) I’m pretty sure that does not exclude words texted or posted online on Facebook and other social media. My premature text messages are always accidental, never intentional. But they do remind me that in a world where anyone can become an instant YouTube sensation for all the wrong reasons, or tweet themselves into notoriety, it is a must to be sure that what we communicate is really what we want to communicate. TTYL!
