Man electrocuted in Barber County By Marione Martin A utility pole being set came into contact with an electric line causing injuries to two men. One died and the other was hospitalized. The men were setting a pole for Track Utility approximately one mile north of Curry Lane on Northstar Road in Barber County, Kan., on Thursday, Aug. 29. According to the Barber County Sheriff’s Office, while the men were setting the pole the wind came up and twisted the pole out of the grapple arms

of the truck. The pole then fell, hitting the electric line above where the men were working. Both men were holding the pole when it came in contact with the line. The pole was also secured by a chain that kept it from falling to the ground. Dakota Holt, 20, of Coulee Dam, Wash., was taken by Medicine Lodge Ambulance to the hospital where he later died from his injuries. Michael A. Rowan, 29, of Garden City, Kan., was taken by Medicine Lodge

Ambulance to the hospital and was then sent by helicopter to Wichita. The extent of his injuries was unknown but he did receive burns to his hands, feet and face. The accident was investigated by Barber County Sheriff Rugg, Undersheriff Tedder and Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper Coltan Lann. Barber County Fire, Medicine Lodge EMS and hospital staff were all at the scene. According to the report from the sheriff’s office, no signs of negligence were found.

Helena man’s bond revoked, more charges are filed By Marione Martin A Helena man is facing his second felony stalking charge in Alfalfa County. Kerry O’Dell Gregg, 41, was charged Aug. 28 with stalking in violation of a court order. He was also charged with a misdemeanor of violation of protective order, and his bond was revoked. According to documents on file, on July 9 Gregg was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, a felony, and with domestic abuse – assault and battery, a misdemeanor. Also on July 9 his wife filed a protective order against him. On Aug. 9, Gregg was charged with stalking in violation of a court order, a felony, and with violation of protective order, a misdemeanor. His wife Shawna filed for divorce on Aug. 12. Under the terms of the latest emer-

gency order of protection filed Aug. 5, Kerry Gregg is prohibited from having any contact with Shawna either in person or through others. Kerry Gregg was released from jail on Aug. 20. Shawna reported that she received multiple hang-up calls at her place of work at Great Salt Plains State Park starting at 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 21 and continuing on Aug. 22. When she tried to call the number back, it had been blocked. She told Alfalfa County Deputy Sheriff Blake Trekell that she believed Kerry was harassing her at work because he did not know her new cell phone number. On Aug. 23 Shawna contacted Trekell and State Park Ranger Ryan Webster who was assisting in the investigation. She said she had received more calls and a female voice started communicating with her. The female identified herself as Jessica and told Shawna her Jeep was dirty and she needed to wash it. Shawna said the same woman told her she was going to “kick your a— at the football game tonight” and told her not to have her kids around her at the football game so they wouldn’t get hurt. Shawna said she also received several email notifications on her email account that someone had been trying to change her password. Also a female named Trudy Presley from Ponca City attempted to add Shawna to her Facebook friends list. Shawna said she noticed she was a mutual friend with Kerry and no one else and thought she was probably the female calling her. On Aug. 23 Trekell subpoenaed records of all calls received at Shawna’s

office number. When he received the report later that afternoon, he compared them to the times of the hang-ups and one threatening phone call given to him by Shawna and identified the phone number as the same one Kerry provided to the Alfalfa County District Attorney’s Office as his contact number. There were approximately 13 calls in a five-hour time span on the 23rd, 11 on the 22nd and 19 on the 21st from that phone number. On Aug. 23 Alfalfa County District Court issued a warrant for Kerry Gregg’s arrest, revoking his bond. He was arrested a short time later by state park rangers and the Enid Police Department at the Trails Motel in Enid. Trekell arrived at the hotel room where Kerry had been taken into custody and seized a cellphone Kerry had in his hand when officers contacted him. He also seized Kerry’s laptop computer. On Aug. 25 in a post-Miranda interview, Trekell asked Kerry Gregg the conditions of his bond, and he acknowledged he was not to have contact with Shawna or the children in any way and that he was not to be in Alfalfa County. In answer to further questions, Kerry said he had not been in Alfalfa County and that he had provided his contact information to Alfalfa County. He could not recall his new phone number, but when shown his phone he agreed it was his and read his number off from the phone. Trekell asked him if he had been with anyone that day, and he said his friend Trudy Presley from Ponca City was with him from 9 a.m. to about 2 p.m. or 2:30 p.m. on the 23rd.

Burglary and vandalism at Smok Shak

Cherokee woman charged with embezzlement

By Alex Cole A Smok Shak employee arrived at work on Sunday to find the barbeque restaurant in Ingersoll completely torn apart and burglarized. The crime took place between 10:30 Saturday night and 8 Sunday morning and was reported to the police at 8:10 a.m. on Sunday. An officer said a cinderblock had been thrown through a glass door on the west side of the building to gain entrance. Among the stolen items was a 250-pound safe that was bolted down and contained money and receipts. Money from the register drawer had also been stolen.

Burglary was not the only crime committed at the Smok Shak. According to police, a very large amount of vandalism also took place. The restaurant had glass candy vending machines that were knocked over and broken, and rolled silverware was scattered throughout the room. The cash register was also thrown on the floor, along with the bread that was going to be served that day. In the cooler, mink meat had been dumped on the floor and then had liquid smoke poured on it. Police said the office in the restaurant was also destroyed, and the total estimated value is around $8,000. So far, no arrests have been made.

By Marione Martin A Cherokee woman has been charged with embezzlement after evidence was recovered from a contraband cellphone seized from an inmate last year. According to documents in the case, Alfalfa County Deputy Sheriff Blake Trekell received an anonymous tip that there might be an illegal cellphone inside the county jail and that it was being used to arrange for illegal contraband to be brought into the jail. On Aug. 9, 2012, deputies removed the inmates from their cells, and while they were lined up Trekell asked if there was any property inside the jail that shouldn’t be there. Inmate Jimmy Delbosque admitted he had a cellphone hidden in his cell and showed Trekell its location. Trekell interviewed Delbosque in the office area. Delbosque said he used the phone to talk to his girlfriend and had also asked her to bring tobacco into the jail. He admitted he snuck the phone into the jail when he was processed. On Aug. 12, 2012, Delbosque was released from custody. He asked what would be done about the cellphone. He See Charged Page 8

Charged

said that he knew sneaking the cellphone into the jail was wrong, and he admitted he allowed other inmates to use the phone to talk to their friends and family. Trekell told him he would be conducting further investigations in regard to the contraband. Delbosque said he didn’t mind if he searched his cellphone if it would speed the investigation. Trekell obtained both verbal and written consent. With Delbosque present, Trekell accessed the

phone and found several text messages supporting his previous admissions of asking Lonnie Lucero to bring him tobacco in jail. He also located text messages concerning stolen money from the Cherokee Alco store. On Sept. 25, 2012, a search warrant was executed on the phone at the Enid Police Department. The forensic examination of the device was conducted by Sgt. Dustin Albright. One text message said,

in part, “I think they found out about that money from alco cause michelle left me a voice mail…” On June 20, 2013, Trekell spoke with Michelle Harper, Alco manager in Cherokee, who reported she hired Lonnie Lucero on April 5, 2012, and that Lucero resigned on July 17, 2012, after she accused her of stealing money from her register. Harper stated she had a total of $293.74 missing from Lucero’s registers in a four month period. On Oct. 10, 2012, Trekell spoke with Lucero who refused to speak to him about the messages discovered on her phone. On Aug. 28, 2013, Lonnie Lucero, 20, of Cherokee was charged with misdemeanor embezzlement.

Nobody at Kiowa’s Labor Day celebration had as much fun or worked harder than the “official beaners” who put on ham and beans in the wee morning hours in big black cauldrons that sit over a fire and cook for hours, stirred by beaners who use long paddles. The free ham and bean dinner is as much a part of the tradition as the celebration itself. This year Shell Oil donated $2,500 to the chamber to help pay expenses of the meal and celebration. “Beaners” shown: (left side, front to back) Kevin Palmer, Keith Rathgeber, Kendall Clark, Roger Robison and Tom Holcomb; (right side, front to back) Craig Brattin, Clay Holcomb and Tyler Hiltner.

Kiowa special election Tuesday, Sept. 10, for a three-quarter-cent sales tax increase By Yvonne Miller Voters in Kiowa, Kan., are urged to vote in a special election next Tuesday, Sept. 10. The Kiowa City Council approved the election at its July meeting. They ask for a thee-quarter-cent sales tax increase. The council said the money will go mainly for street improvements. If the question passes, Kiowa’s sales tax will increase to 7.9 percent from 7.15 percent. For many recent years, Kiowa’s sales tax was 7.3 percent until a recent drop by the state. Kiowa City Administrator Nathan Law estimates the increased sales tax will generate about $62,000 in revenue for the city. He said the city’s estimated general fund budget for 2014 needs the additional revenue because the street repairs are necessary. The city’s public budget hearing is generally in August. However, because

of the special election, that public hearing will be Sept. 30. At their July meeting, council members agreed a sales tax would be fairer to capture that needed $62,000 for the budget. That’s instead of raising taxes on property owners only. Law provided an example. He used an average valuation of a Barber County home at $51,047. Last year that homeowner paid $809.33 in property tax. If property taxes were raised to make up the $62,000 needed for Kiowa’s budget, that same homeowner would pay roughly $75 more in property tax per year. Law said Kiowa property owners currently pay approximately 42.2 city mills. If property tax were increased, city millage would increase to about 55.2 mills. In contrast, Law said a person spending $600 on goods in Kiowa per

month pays $42.90 in sales tax at the current rate of 7.15 percent. If that sales tax percentage increases to 7.9, a person pays $47.40, an increase of about $5 per month. Council members favor an increased sales tax because everyone purchasing goods in Kiowa would contribute, not just residents. This still leaves Kiowa’s sales tax lower than most surrounding towns. Several councilmembers said they’ve received mostly positive input from Kiowa citizens about passing a sales tax increase. They mentioned some negative feedback from just a few business owners. At the July meeting, Law gave a PowerPoint presentation of pie charts and other information regarding the city’s 2014 revenue and expenditures. All were with the proposed sales tax increase factored in to them. For 2014 expenditures, the pie chart shows the electric fund is 53 percent of the pie at $1,440,918; the general fund is the next largest at 23 percent at $614,627; followed by many smaller funds. As for 2014 revenue, the biggest piece of the pie chart is 36 percent of current ad valorem tax at $202,917, with 21 percent county sales tax at $120,000. Eleven percent of the pie is city sales tax at $62,000, followed by numerous other smaller resources.
