City demands public viewing of drug dog

DA’s office takes look at Jet fuss By KORINA DOVE Messenger & Republican Staff JET – Town board members took their places Friday aside a primitive console television set and a rotary phone in a backroom of the Jet Fire Department. The three board members present – Carolyn Crossette, Hershel Kiser and Lindeen Evans (David Pitt was ill) – and the 20 citizens who showed up weren’t gathering in a dimlylit storage room with a paintspeckled concrete floor because that’s where they usually meet. They were meeting there because the only person with a key to City Hall, where the special meeting was scheduled to See FUSS Page 2

HOMECOMING COURT – A homecoming queen and king will be crowned prior to Cherokee’s football game with Kremlin-Hillsdale Friday evening. Queen candidates are, from left: Lindzey Ducotey, Katelyn Roberts and Taylor Highfill. King candidates are, from left: Wesley Gilchrist, Derek Richmond and Austin Hawkins. Coronation activities will get under way at about 7 p.m.

Burlington Week’s worth of Homecoming voters say No bonfire this year; parade starts at 2 p.m. Friday ‘yes’ to bond A statewide burn ban has snuffed out this year’s bonfire, but it didn’t put a damper on any of Cherokee’s other annual homecoming activities. Cherokee students have been showing their spirit all week, beginning Monday by wearing pajamas to school. Tuesday, students paired up as twins and then donned camouflage all day Wednesday. Today (Thursday) they were tasked to wear pink in honor of this year’s homecoming theme, “Unlock the Magic for a Cure – Cherokee Chiefs Tackle Cancer.” Friday is spirit day, when students and the school will be decked out in the Chiefs’ winning colors of red and white. All Chiefs fans can participate in evening homecoming activities, starting at 7:30 p.m. today with powder puff football and a pass, punt and kick contest at 8:15 p.m. The night

Burlington School District voters overwhelmingly said “yes” Tuesday to a $410,000 transportation bond issue. Needing 60 percent approval for passage, the question was approved by 88.72 percent of the 133 voters who went to the polls. One hundred eighteen voted for the bond, with only 15 voting against it. The money will be used to purchase three 47-passenger buses, a bus with a wheelchair ramp, a new Suburban and a new pickup truck for the vocational-agriculture department.

will conclude with a pep rally that normally takes place around a bonfire. Because of summer drought conditions and a governor-issued burn ban, however, the bonfire was called off. FRIDAY PARADE, GAME Cherokee Homecoming Parade will begin at 2 p.m. in downtown Cherokee with Mayor Karen Hawkins leading the way as this year’s parade marshal. Following her will be members of the Pride of Cherokee playing Cherokee’s fight song “On Wisconsin” and “Little Mac.” This will be the first time in years Cherokee’s Homecoming Parade will be led by a band. The Pride of Cherokee band consists of Cherokee alumni band members and others who support bringing music and band programs back into Cherokee Public Schools. See PARADE Page 3

By STEVE BOOHER Messenger & Republican Staff Is Qando, the City of Cherokee's drug dog, too "vicious" to make public appearances? Following an appeal by Police Chief Chris Ferrell for the city to purchase equipment designed to protect the dog should vehicle air conditioning fail during hot summer months, City Commissioner Diana Williamson asked if the request could be tabled for later action. Ferrell, who has been trained

to handle the dog, appeared before commissioners in August requesting the equipment, which costs $1,460. It was tabled then. The equipment includes warnings when the vehicle becomes too hot for the dog's health and can allow the handler to eventually open the car door and allow Qando to escape the heat, if necessary. Also included is a "shock" collar to help discipline the dog See DOG Page 3

Laying to rest a Border Patrol ‘icon’ By STEVE BOOHER Messenger & Republican Staff He may have out-lived his peers, but to those with a sense of history retired United States Border Patrol Chief Don Coppock will be remembered as an icon who rubbed elbows with some of the most powerful men of one of the most turbulent decades in America. Many Cherokee residents can be forgiven for not knowing the story of Don Coppock's 32-year career in the United States Border Patrol, including 14 years as chief. After all, Coppock retired from the Border Patrol in 1973 – nearly 39 years ago. Anyone younger than 45 or 50 years of age would be hardpressed to recall anything other than what they were taught in U.S. history classes about the civil rights clashes of the 1960s or the impeachment proceedings for then-President Richard Nixon. During Coppock's years at the head of the Border Patrol, Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson used the agency to enforce civil rights at mostly southern schools. Shortly after his retirement from the Border

Patrol, he was called upon to serve as the chief administrator and public information officer for the U.S. House Inquiry Committee looking into President Richard Nixon's activities, including the break-in at Democrat National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C. As mentioned in last week's obituary for Coppock, he and the Border Patrol were involved in many high profile cases, including the Martin Luther King Jr. assassination investigation, the so-called "Poor People's March" on Washington, D.C., and the negotiations that resulted in the return of prisoners following the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. That may account for the short speech retired Border Patrol Chief Roger "Buck" Brandemuehl gave the young contingent of Border Patrol personnel who participated in Coppock's funeral. Woody Lee, deputy chief of the Rio Grande Valley Sector of the Border Patrol – and the ranking officer at the graveside service for Coppock – called the nearly 30 young men and women See ICON Page 3

County ACT scores are released FUSS School District No. Tested English

OKLAHOMA CITY – High school principals soon will be presenting ACT scores for their schools along with college remediation rates to their local school boards. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Janet Barresi said this year’s scores show the continued need for all Oklahoma students to take four years of core subjects. “The results are very clear that if you take four years in these core subjects, whether or not you plan to go on to college, it is the best training for your future career,” Barresi said. A total of 28,223, or 76 percent, of Oklahoma graduates from the class of 2011 took the ACT exam this year, up from 73 percent in 2010. The average composite score for the state is 20.7, a number unchanged since 2007, and below the national average of 21.1. The ACT is graded on a scale of 0-36. Average subscores for state students are 20.5 in English, below the national average of 20.6; 19.9 in math, below the national average of 21.1; 21.3 in reading, matching the national average; and 20.6 in science, below the national average of 20.9. Both composite scores and subscores for each public high school in the state have been posted at http://www.sde.state. o k . u s / S e r v i c e s / N e w s / 2 0 11 / ACT2011.pdf. ACT scores determine whether students enrolling in postsecondary institutions are required to take remedial courses. The state Board of Education requires every high school principal to present the ACT scores for his or her school each year along with college remediation rates at their local, public board

of education meeting. The statewide average remediation rate for first-time freshmen entering college in the 2009-10 school year – the most recent number available – is almost 43 percent, according to the state Regents for Higher Education. Of the total number of state students taking the ACT this year, 8 percent were African American with an average composite score of 17.2 percent, 11 percent were American Indian with an average score of 19.5 percent, 61 percent were Caucasian with an average score of 21.6 percent, 8 percent were Hispanic with an average score of 18.9 percent, and 3 percent were Asian American with an average score of 22.4 percent. Nine percent were listed as other. The scores showed improvement from last year, but Barresi said they still show educators need to continue to focus on having minority populations participate in Advanced Placement courses. While average subscores in the state are only slightly behind the nation, the number of high school graduates meeting college readiness benchmarks in the state is 10 percent behind the nation in math and 5 percent below the nation in science. Only 20 percent of graduating seniors met benchmarks in all four subject areas. Benchmarks represent the level of achievement students need to have a 50 percent chance of securing a B or higher or a 75 percent chance of receiving a C or higher in entry-level college courses. ACT benchmarks are 18 for English composition, 21 for social sciences (reading), 22 for college algebra and 24 for bi-

Continued from Page 1 take place, didn’t show up. Board member Carolyn Crossette said last week that Mayor Jim Blackledge not only changed the locks to City Hall and left fellow members keyless, but he also threw out Town Clerk Kelli Hopkins, confiscated the town’s computer, software and public records and carried everything off down the street to the local motel. Town board members reported the alleged incident to the Alfalfa County Sheriff ’s Office, and authorities turned the matter over to the district attorney’s office. “We will be requesting an audit from the state auditor’s office,” said Assistant District Attorney Westline Ritter. “That’s actually going to cost the City of Jet some money.” Ritter said she will contact attorneys Bryce Kennedy and Bill Shaw, who both are acting as city attorneys for Jet, for more information, but as of Tuesday, no solid evidence of any reported activities in Jet can be verified. “At this time, we don’t have sufficient information based on accusations of both parties if there is any criminal activity,” Ritter said. “The audit will determine that information.” Town board members were scheduled to discuss Blackledge’s behavior and determine if he is still welcome to serve as the mayor of the town, but Evans stopped the meeting by threatening to walk out and leave the board one person short of a quorum. He also said he knew Blackledge would not attend the meeting. When it was obvious Pitt and Blackledge would not be present, Kennedy told the members present that they have a legal right to conduct the meeting

with three members present. “I can leave,” Evans said. “Then we can’t have a meeting.” “So, you’re saying you would just get up and leave?” Kennedy said. “Yeah, I’d just get up and leave,” Evans said. “So we wouldn’t have a quorum?” Kennedy said. “Yeah,” Evans said. “I’d rather have a regular meeting and put all that stuff on the agenda for the regular meeting, so maybe David can be here and maybe the mayor can be here.” “We honestly thought Jim would be here,” Crossette said from across the table. “Nah, I knew he wouldn’t be here,” Evans said. “He had this birthday party for his grandson (in Kansas) planned for a long time.” Kennedy asked Kiser what he would like to do. “I guess do it Wednesday night (during the board’s regular meeting),” Kiser said. “So you’re not even going to meet (tonight)?” Kennedy said. “There’s no reason to,” said Crossette. “He says he’s going to leave (looking at Evans).” With that, board members grabbed their agendas and respective paperwork and got up from the table. Citizens began folding up chairs and exiting the building. Crossette said agenda items from the special meeting will be added to Wednesday’s agenda. The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at City Hall and is open to the public. Agenda items from the special meeting include the following: •Consider action deemed necessary regarding the employment of Bill Shaw as town attorney, including termina-

Farmers Co-op

tion. •Consider approval of demand letter to mayor for return of town computer, all software, files, invoices, bills and other documents, materials and equipment removed from town hall or in the possession of the mayor and unknown third parties. •Authorize change of locks and keys at town hall and change code at post office. •Post notice at city hall making it a public trespass to not leave town hall when directed by town clerk, but only in instances when town clerk feels threatened or harassed. •Post notice at city hall making it tampering with private property for anyone (including officers of the town not authorized by the town board) to change the locks on any public property or take any public property without authority. •Direct special counsel to prepare notice and statement of charges against the mayor for removal as appointive officer (mayor’s office only) and give mayor and town board notice of date and time of hearing. •Consider appointment of Jim Long of Enid as municipal judge, and set salary. •Rehire Kelli Hopkins as town clerk to perform her nonstatutory duties at the agreed upon rate previously determined.

DOG Continued from Page 1 and make it easier for the handler to direct him during entry into buildings. "Was there ever a time this summer when you were worried about the dog in the heat?" asked Mayor Karen Hawkins. "Absolutely," answered Ferrell, who said the air conditioner shut down on one occasion. "It was blowing hot air, but we made it back to him (Qando) in time." Since former Police Chief Mike Andrews left the department several weeks ago, Ferrell has been the only officer on duty. City Manager Don Bowman said there is $3,000 in the budget to pay for items like those requested by Ferrell. When it appeared Hawkins was about to entertain a motion to purchase the equipment, the conversation switched to why Qando is seldom, if ever, seen in public. "He can be vicious," was the answer and that prompted a quick response from Commissioner Donna Irwin. "We've asked several times to see the dog (work)," said Irwin. "But he hasn't been brought in. People are wondering if we even have a dog. She questioned why the dog's abilities hadn't been displayed before school children or at local civic clubs, including the Rotary, which raised the money to purchase Qando. "We need to get the dog out there, if for no other reason than to thank the people for donating for its purchase," she said. When informed that bringing the dog into close proximity to the public could expose the city to a liability, Irwin questioned why other drug dogs in the area are calm enough to make appearances in front of the public. She also asked if it would be wise to purchase equipment to free the dog from the car if it is too "vicious" for exposure to the public Irwin, Williamson, Hawkins and Commissioner Jack Custer voted to table the purchase until the dog makes an appearance at the Thursday, Oct. 13, commission meeting. Commissioner Rachel Hager was unable to attend the meeting. The Messenger & Republican was asked to publish a story before the dog's appearance so that the public can see him in action. This reporter agreed to do so, but reminded Ferrell and the city manager that a request detailing how many times the dog was used, how many arrests resulted and what charges were filed has never been supplied by the city. Bowman and Ferrell said they would fulfill that request. In another safety issue, commissioners voted to authorize the mayor to sign an application requesting up to $50,000 in a REAP (Rural Economic Action Plan) grant to help the city pay for remodeling of a new E-911 dispatch area in City Hall. City Attorney Bryce Kennedy showed commissioners plans for two work stations for dispatchers. Renovations will include re-wiring the area to accept the latest emergency technology. Kennedy estimated the cost for the project to be nearly

PARADE $59,000 and urged commissioners to make the project "right." He also suggested asking Alfalfa County Commissioners Doug Murrow, Chad Roach and Toby Walker to apply for a $150,000 REAP grant as a cooperative project to build a new E-911 center in a separate building. He said the timing was good, since the county appears to be in favor of an E-911 system. It could also house the city's police department, he said. "My only qualm is that we left the county commissioners the impression that we can finance (and operate) the new E-911 operation," said Bowman. "However, I think we can look at it." In other business, commissioners: •Voted to accept an offer from Chesapeake Energy to lease 11.4 acres near the city's sewer lagoon for $800 an acre plus 3/16ths of any oil or gas production on the property. "It amounts to a little more than $9,000," Bowman told the commissioners. •Authorized Bowman to spend up to $5,000 for clean up of the debris that now clutters the sewer lagoon property. "DEQ wants it cleaned up," explained Bowman. "It looks like a junkyard now; we've got to start regulating what people are dumping out there." Custer said, "We used to check what was dumped out there." Bowman said the debris could be pushed into a "U" shape around the lagoons. Jim Buck will do the work, said the city manager. •Fire Chief Kevin Lingemann informed commissioners that he is in the process of completing paperwork that could improve the city's ISO rating and lower insurance costs for residents. The project must be completed before Oct. 1, when a fire safety inspector visits Cherokee. •Commissioners did not have to act upon a request to have a wedding reception in the city park, which would include the serving of alcohol. "We told them we (City Hall) were against it," said Bowman, "and they withdrew their request." •A bid for $895 by First Choice of Alva to clean the carpet in the City-County Public Library was accepted by the commission. Other bids included $774 from Steamway in Alva and $1,330 from Royal Cleaning in Lahoma. The money will come from the library's finances. •Voted to pay a claim of $785 from Guernsey & Co. for its engineering work on a city airport project. In his manager's report, Bowman told commissioners

city crews are in the process of replacing street signs and stop signs. He said some residents had called in worried that someone might be stealing the signs when they saw the work in progress. He said he is still searching for a new policeman and will place advertisements in the

Enid newspaper. Kennedy gave Bowman the names of two police officers who might be interested in the job. Finally, the city manager said efforts to clean up Cottonwood Canyon of trees and other obstacles to water flow will begin again if the cooler weather prevails.

ICON Continued from Page 1 together following the funeral so that Brandemuehl could address them. Brandemuehl thanked them for their service in the Patrol, but then informed them that they had just participated in a funeral for a Border Patrol "icon" and a "true American hero." He explained that Coppock worked closely with both Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, and that they valued his input. While Coppock's funeral had all the pomp and circumstance of a state funeral, ironically no one (other than state Rep. Jeff Hickman) attended the funeral to represent the State of Oklahoma. That was also true of the federal government, with the Border Patrol's involvement the only presence. Brandemuehl, who first met Coppock upon entering the Border Patrol in the 1950s, spoke during the funeral. "Don was big in stature, but bigger in heart," said Brandemuehl. "He stood up for what he stood for and didn't back down." Retired Border Patrol agent Loren Valentine, who attended the funeral service with his wife, now resides in Blackwell. He said he met Coppock in Florida during the Cuban missile crisis in October of 1962. Only Border Patrol personnel "weren't called agents in those days; we were inspectors," said Valentine. Obviously, attention to detail is a trait of those serving in the Border Patrol. This reporter recalls the times Coppock entered the Messenger & Republican office with a stub of a cigar dangling from the side of his mouth. When the cigar was present, the normally mild-mannered Coppock was on a mission and ready for a de-

bate over politics. Because the Cherokee native seldom, if ever, spoke of his involvement in those high profile cases of the 1960s, most who came in contact with Coppock knew him better as one of the regulars at the local domino parlor. Even Brandemuehl, his close friend from those days, ended his eulogy with a statement that rang true with Coppock's contemporary friends. "I'll bet he's up there with the saints, saying 'Let's have a domino game,'" Brandemuehl said.

Burlington School District Minutes Clerk Janet Hill and her husband, Roger, are recovering from a Sept. 10 crash involving two motorcycles traveling along SH 11 near the artesian well in Alfalfa County. The Hills, who live in Burlington, were riding a 2010 Harley Davidson and traveling westbound behind a 1996 Harley Davidson driven by Clifford Eugene Anderson, 62, of Kiowa, Kan. Anderson pulled to the side of the road and came to a stop, according to the highway patrol report. In the report, Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Darrin Lancaster said Roger Hill, who was driving, noticed a scooter parked at the artesian well, pulled onto the right shoulder of the road and struck Anderson’s motorcycle from behind. Roger Hill, 61, was transported by Alfalfa County Emergency Medical Services to Bass Baptist Regional Medical Center in Enid, where he was admitted with head, trunk, arm and leg injuries. He was listed in stable condition. Janet Hill, 59, was transported by Alfalfa County EMS to Bass and admitted with head, trunk, arm and leg injuries. She also was listed in stable condition. According to the trooper’s report, an odor of alcohol was detected on Anderson, but Hill’s condition was apparently normal. The cause of the collision was listed as inattention and distraction from an outside vehicle. Members of the Alfalfa County Sheriff ’s Office, Alfalfa County EMS and Cherokee Fire Department assisted Lancaster. The accident occurred about 1:15 p.m.

Grab a paint brush and show some pride Saturday By KORINA DOVE Messenger & Republican Staff Improving the appearance of Cherokee Public Schools is easy. Just grab a paintbrush and show up this weekend, said Superintendent Cory Ellis. Ellis has organized the first Cherokee Pride Day of the school year and everyone is invited to join the activity from 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturday. Volunteers will meet on the front lawn of the high school. Saturday’s “chores” include painting the back wall of the auditorium and window seals around the school building. “We’re having another Cherokee Pride Day for the elementary on Oct. 15,” Ellis said. Ellis has made improving the looks of both school campuses a priority during his first year as superintendent. Some improvements were made possible through a bond issue passed by voters in May. Money generated from the bond issue has been used to its maximum benefit and the school is down to the last repairs for which funding was approved. The $445,000 bond issue provided 200 new student desks, teacher chairs, regular student chairs, new tile and carpet and electrical work at the elementary school. About all that remains from the building improvement bond is work on the schools’ heating and air units. “We’ll have about $27,000 to do the heat and air, which will make it tight, really tight,” Ellis said. “I budgeted $40,000 for it.” Estimates, however, have come in at less than $40,000. Ellis received a bid for $22,000 to fix the units at the elementary school and $9,000 to repair units in the girls’ locker room. “There will be peripheral stuff with that, though, like they’ll need a crane to put the units up there,” Ellis said. “So we’ll have to do some planning on that.”

Home of the Great Salt Plains & the Selenite Hourglass Crystal

Most of the $445,000 was spent on a transportation bond for a 74-passenger activity bus, a small bus and two Suburbans. Ellis updated board of education members Cheryl Washburn, Ken Girty, T.J. Allison and Amber Wilhite of the expenditures during the Sept. 8 regular board meeting. Member Daylon Caruthers was not present. On the short agenda, Ellis informed the board members during his administrative report that improvements to the former computer lab, located north of the main elementary school building, were largely due to volunteers Gary Goeken, David Newlin and Roger Kildow. “They’ve put in over 40 hours apiece on little things like fixing faucets, painting, moving junk, fixing the ceiling tile,” Ellis said. The building was closed officially two years ago. “I don’t know the last time they used it for a classroom,” Ellis said. The building, which once served as Cherokee’s kindergarten room, now houses fourth grade and Pre-K. An increase of 46 students in this year’s enrollment has caused Ellis to rearrange classrooms and hire two new teachers to accommodate the new classroom sizes. (Look for story and charts for enrollment figures for all schools in Alfalfa County in next week’s paper.) Ellis decided to split two classrooms, first grade, with 28 students, and third grade, with 27 students. Kayla Stewart began teaching third grade with Heidi Newlin on Monday, and LaDonna Hoggard will share first-grade teaching duties with Stephanie Shepard. Other classes with increased enrollment are kindergarten, with 25 students, Pre-K with 25 students, and seventh grade, with 30 students. Handling the increase, especially for the seventh graders in the high school building, has been challenging, but exciting, for the new superintendent. “When (seventh graders) go to (computer class), they don’t have enough computer stations available,” Ellis said. “There are only 20 stations and they need 30.” Ellis attributes the rise in enrollment to the economy, but also to

Cherokee pride. “I attribute it partly because, of course, the obvious would be the oil field activity, but I think a lot of people like myself are coming back wanting to raise their kids here,” Ellis said. “It’s a great place to live, isn’t it?” NEW PROGRAMS Ellis announced during the board meeting that the school has implemented a remediation program for students who do not pass End of Instruction tests. “We’re also offering remediation for kids that (have) ‘D’s and below on Fridays,” he said. “It’s state requirement now. They can’t graduate without passing. The kids who pass get to go home early on those days – about 45 minutes early.” Ellis also told the board that the phone system at the elementary school is down. “We’re using one portable phone to answer the phones over there,” he said. “We cannot use any other phones any other way.” He is looking at replacing the outdated system with a district-wide service. “These phones at the high school and the elementary will be integrated together,” Ellis said. He received one estimate of about $2,000 for four new phones from KanOkla, but he said he plans on checking with other companies before making any decisions. Finally, board members passed several fundraiser proposals from the following school groups: •Pass, punt and kick contest for student council. •Coca-Cola by the Case for boys and girls basketball. •Pullover jackets for track. •Free throw fundraiser, Little Chiefs Basketball and discount cards for boys and girls basketball. •Bake sale on Oct. 1 for FCCLA. •Concession stand at homecoming powder puff football game for senior class. All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

Honoring a ‘true American hero’ Donald R. Coppock ~ 1910-2011

FEW IN CHEROKEE know the height to which Don Coppock rose in the ranks of the U.S. Border Patrol during his 14-year tenure as chief of the agency. Those attending his funeral Thursday, Sept. 1, witnessed first hand the respect the Border Patrol still has for a man retired Border Patrol Chief Buck Brandemuehl termed an “icon” in the federal agency. Clockwise from top left: Coppock’s flag-draped casket waits for the start of the short service in the Cherokee Friends Church. A Border Patrol honor guard served as casket bearers at the church and the Cherokee Municipal Cemetery, where Coppock was laid to rest. The mournful “taps” was played at the cemetery and the Border Patrol honor guard removed and respectfully folded the American flag. Woody Lee, deputy chief of the Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Sector, presents the flag to Coppock’s daughter Mary-Blue Ster, and thanks her for her father’s service to the Border Patrol and the nation. Retired Chief Brandemuehl addresses the 30-member Border Patrol contingent which participated in the service and thanks them for their presence. He informed them that they had just helped bury a “true American hero.” Coppock was laid to rest next to his late wife, Shirley. A 21-gun rifle salute verified the respect the Border Patrol exhibited for one of its former chiefs.

Parker trial winds down; prosecution’s lead witness under perjury investigation By MARGARET GOSS

Carmen Methodist Church has begun having services in the new building across from Carmen park. They are also serving their chicken dinner on Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m.

Parenting Through Separation and Divorce Divorcing parents are often faced with many new problems during this difficult time for the entire family. Although their marriage is ending, their role as parents continues through their lives. To help make this transition easier, Northwest Family Services Inc. staff member Ginger Smith, M.B.S. will be teaching their Parenting Through Separation and Divorce class Monday night, September 19, 2011. The class will be in Cherokee from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., in the Civic Room (1st floor) of the Alfalfa County Courthouse, 300 South Grand. To enroll, please call Northwest Family Services at 580-

327-2900. Participants must pre-enroll; the class will be canceled if there is inadequate pre-enrollment. Class costs $30 per person. This class was designed at the request of the courts to help divorcing couples understand the problems their children may experience during and after a divorce or separation. It will fulfill the court order for all divorcing parents. Parents will learn skills to parent cooperatively, even though they are divorced. In the class, parents will learn how to effectively communicate with their children and with their former spouse. They will practice reflective listening skills and will study various ac-

tive communication techniques and non-verbal communications. They will also practice workable negotiation styles for dealing with conflict and rules for effective expressions. Recognizing and avoiding Pain Games is another topic of consideration. Parents will learn to recognize and cease games like I-Spy, Set-up, and Wishbone, which are likely to hurt the children. Class members will also discuss various options for parenting, such as joint custody and mediation. I n 2 0 11 , t h e P a r e n t i n g Through Separation and Divorce Class will be taught on Oct. 11 in Alva, Nov. 8 in Fairview and Dec. 13 in Cherokee.

Carmen Correspondent On Monday Sept. 12, the defense for Bobbi Parker rested its case after testimony by psychiatrist Dr. Robert B. Nesbet who indicated Randolph Dial was a sociopath and that Bobbi Parker was afraid of him. Both sides will prepare for closing arguments. A new development in the case occurred last week when Fox News covered a story that the leading witness for the prosecution, OSBI agent Robert Williams, was charged with perjury when he filed what was believed to be a false affidavit in a case involving a police officer in Duncan. They have demanded an OSBI investigation and asked that Williams be suspended for withholding information in the case. The district attorney for the case is District Attorney John Wampler and the judge is Judge Darby who are also the judge and D.A. for the Parker case.

Help fight hunger, donate to Food for Kids Backpack Program

STEAMWAY OF ALVA 4 Oklahoma Blvd. • Alva, OK 73717

Nearly one in five children in Oklahoma will struggle with hunger daily. To help fight childhood hunger, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is encouraging elementary schools in Alfalfa County to participate in the Food for Kids Backpack Program.  The Backpack Program started in 2003 when a student passed out in the lunch line on a Monday afternoon – all he ate over the weekend was a hot dog. Last school year, the program served more than 11,500 chronically hungry children in 374 schools in 49 central and western counties. Before receiving help from the program, many of these children had very little or nothing to eat between school lunch on Friday and school breakfast on Monday. The Regional Food Bank plans on expanding the program until it is available in every elementary school in its 53 central and western Oklahoma county service area.The food bank estimates that 3,426 children could still benefit from the program statewide in central and western Oklahoma.  To start the Backpack Program in Alfalfa County, readers should contact their elementary school principal or contact Emily Windahl at ewindahl@regionalfoodbank.org or 405.600.3141. Through Sept. 30, all tax-deductible donations made to the Food for Kids Backpack Program will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000. "A $200 donation supplies one child with a backpack full of food every weekend for an entire school year," said Rodney Bivens, executive director for the Food Bank. Established in 1980, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is the largest private hunger-relief organization in the state of Oklahoma. In Fiscal Year 2011, the Food Bank distributed 46.2 million pounds of food and products through a network of

Coach looks for positives in Chiefs’ 45-8 loss to Laverne By STEVE BOOHER Messenger & Republican Staff LAVERNE – Cherokee's Bryce Schanbacher wasn't talking Monday like a coach whose team lost by 37 points last week. "Like always," said Schanbacher, "our kids gave good effort. Our offensive line opened up some holes, but our pass blocking has to get a lot better. "I thought (quarterback Austin) Huckabee did a good job. He didn't have a lot of time to throw, but when he had some time he hit some of our receivers right in the hands and they just didn't come up with the ball. He's getting the job done. "And (fullback Jerran) Waugh did a good job helping to open some holes in our run game." The Chiefs ran for 195 yards in the loss. On the defensive side of the ball, Schanbacher lamented the play of the Chiefs secondary, but found reason for optimism. SECONDARY OUT OF SYNC "We were out of sync and out of position in the secondary," he said. "Their quarterback was on target all night and they did a good job of mixing up their short and deep passes. "Obviously, it's a weak spot for us and we've got to get a lot better. We just let them play catch a lot of the time. "Two of our secondary people are new and this was the first time they've been tested. Unfortunately for them, it came against a really good team. When they made mistakes it was really obvious. "But it wasn't for a lack of effort and these things are correctable. They'll be better after a few more games and more experience." BRONCS WILL THROW BALL Schanbacher said that additional experience could come Friday, when the Chiefs host the Kremlin-Hillsdale Broncs, a 55-6 loser to the Ringwood Red Devils last week. "They like to throw the ball a little, so we're going to have to get some things figured out in the secondary and have our defensive line apply some pressure," said the Cherokee mentor. The Chiefs, who were flagged 10 times for 58 yards at Laverne, will also attempt to cut down on the penalties. Homecoming activities at the football field will get under way at about 7 p.m., with the crowning of a homecoming queen and king. Kickoff will be at 7:30 p.m. SECOND QUARTER EXPLOSION At the conclusion of the first

AUSTIN HUCKABEE

HENRY WASHINGTON

JERRAN WAUGH

quarter last week, the Chiefs and Tigers were knotted at 0-0. But Laverne quarterback Tucker Rolf turned it around quickly in the second quarter, throwing for three straight touchdowns to put his ball club up 22-0. Cherokee did put together a drive late in the quarter that ended with a 17-yard touchdown run by Henry Washington. Washington also ran in the extra points to cut Laverne's lead to 14 points – 22-8 – but that would prove to be the last time the Chiefs would cross the goal line in this contest. The Tigers scored just before the half to give Laverne a 30-8 cushion at halftime. With Cherokee unable to get untracked offensively and turning the ball back to the Ti-

gers four times on fumbles, the Chiefs were just as ineffective in the third and fourth quarters as they were in the first half. Laverne went ahead 37-8 in the third stanza and scored again in the final quarter for their 45-8 District B-1 victory. "All four of their first half touchdowns came on big plays (26 yards or more)," said Schanbacher. "I don't feel like they just lined up and whipped us. BLESSING IN DISGUISE? "The kids took it pretty hard, but it may turn out to be a blessing in disguise." The taste of defeat was the first in the last 16 games. Cherokee rolled to a 14-0 season and the Class B championship last year and opened up with an easy win at Southwest Chris-

tian Academy in this year's season opener before running into the Laverne buzzsaw on the road. Laverne was picked to win District B-1 this season, but there are eight games left on the schedule – all of them in the district. "Anybody can beat anybody else on any given night in this district," said the Chiefs' head man, meaning that the right combination of wins and losses could still give Cherokee a shot at the district title. If not, the Chiefs have as their goal placing fourth or better in the district to ensure a trip to the playoffs.

T’lake offense finds its rhythm in 66-44 win at Mutual By STEVE BOOHER Messenger & Republican Staff MUTUAL – Fans of offensive football got their money's worth here last Friday, as the Timberlake Tigers and Sharon-Mutual Trojans combined for 110 points and nearly 1,000 yards in total offense. What interested Timberlake Coach Brian Severin more was what the scoreboard read when time ran out in the contest: Tigers 66, Trojans 44. At first glance, it might appear that Timberlake was pressed during the contest, but that was not the case. The Tigers' first team defense gave up only 16 points in the game and Timberlake led 58-16 heading into the fourth quarter. "Our starters came out with about eight minutes to go in the third quarter," said Severin. "We put them back in for one offensive drive in the fourth quarter to get a little more cushion." OFFENSE CLICKS Severin had expressed some concern during the past two weeks that the Tigers were not clicking on offense and worried heading into the non-district contest at Mutual that a stout Trojan offense could spell trouble. "Our offense was better than the first week," the Timberlake mentor said in an understatement. "(Quarterback) Coy (Troutt) threw the ball well

and (all-purpose back) Stetson (Buller) made some good plays. And our offensive line blocked better." PLAYMAKERS SHINE It was a coming out party for Troutt and Buller, who already have well-earned reputations as a pair of the top playmakers in Class C. Troutt was 14 of 19 passing for 292 yards and tossed four touchdowns. He also ran for two touchdowns. His only blemish on a stellar performance was a pair of interceptions on plays where he tried too hard to make things happen for the Tigers. Buller hauled in 9 passes for 210 yards and the four TDs thrown by Troutt. He also picked off a Sharon-Mutual pass and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown. "We rose to the occasion and improved from last week," Severin said. "I was pleased with the way everybody performed." Still another playmaker for Timberlake – diminutive Mitchell Ballard – turned in a strong performance. He returned a punt 60 yards for a touchdown. With Timberlake's reserves in the game for much of the third and fourth quarters, Sharon-Mutual was able to amass nearly 200 yards of offense and score four touchdowns. But it was too little too late to overcome the Tigers' 42-point margin heading into that final

still awaiting approval from the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association to play after transferring to Timberlake.

DEFENSIVE END Casey Carson sacks the Sharon-Mutual quarterback in action from Timberlake’s 66-44 win over the Trojans last Friday at Mutual. Carson and his defensive colleagues put constant pressure on the Sharon-Mutual offense. stanza. TOO MANY TURNOVERS The only statistic that might give Severin pause was in the turnover category, where along with Troutt's two interceptions, Timberlake turned the ball over three more times on fumbles. Sharon-Mutual also had a hard time hanging onto the ball and threw two interceptions of their own and lost four fumbles. The Tigers will have this week off and not return to the gridiron until Friday, Sept. 23, when they're scheduled to host

Sophomore Jordan Nichols and senior Sage Powers are still on the mend.

We want a post office’ By KORINA DOVE Messenger & Republican Staff AMORITA – Nearly the entire population of Amorita showed up Tuesday at the community’s senior citizens center to let U.S. Postal Service representatives know that not a citizen in town wants the post office to close. Amorita Post Office is one of 100 in the state being examined for closure. Because of declining revenues, the U.S. Postal Service is considering closing 3,700 post offices across the nation. Of the 47 residents recorded in the 2010 Census, 32 filled every seat in the senior citizens building to voice their opinions to Debbie Noland, manager of post office operations, and Kerry Rennels, manager of consumer and industry contact, of the Oklahoma District Office in Oklahoma City. “You’ve probably read in the newspaper and seen reports on television about the gloom and doom of the post office right now,” Noland said. “And it’s true. “We’re here to talk about what people would do if the (Amorita) post office was closed.” Noland indicated that if the Amorita Post Office is closed, customers who have post office boxes will be put on a rural carrier route. She also said rural carriers will take on more job responsibilities, like selling stamps, normally offered at post office locations. “There are different ways to buy stamps,” Noland said. “… The rural carrier on wheels – he

Amorita, Oklahoma Post Office can sell stamps to you. He carries stamps with him. He can sell money orders. He can pick up packages.” She said those services are free and will remain free. “He already comes around the area. It wouldn’t be a tough transition if we did something like that,” Noland said. “At the end of the day, we want you to still be able to get your mail.”

That was not an adequate solution for Byron resident Vicki Cloyd, who was at the meeting representing the rural water district. “We mail priority. We mail water samples,” Cloyd said. “If those samples do not arrive in a 24-hour period, we have to do it all over again.” She also said the rural water district mails out 700 cards to

customers each month. “Where are we going to put 700 cards when we mail (with a rural carrier)?” Cloyd said. She figured the rural water district spends $9.68 per month to drive to the Amorita Post Office to retrieve and send mail each morning. If the post office closes, she will have to drive to the Burlington Post Office, which will cost $72.20 a month.

Burlington grad offers financial education By STEVE BOOHER Messenger & Republican Staff OKLAHOMA CITY – Burlington High School graduate and Amorita native Michael Morford, alarmed by the general public's lack of literacy following the 2008 financial collapse, will host a free one-day Oklahoma Investor Conference on Friday, Sept. 23, at the Oklahoma City Sheraton. The founder of F3 (Financial Fluency Foundation), a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the financial literacy of Americans, Morford brought together leaders in the financial, military, civil and businesses communities to discuss the economy.

F3 arrived at the consensus that much of the 2008 financial crisis was a lack of understanding about the world of finance, and that the educational system was not preparing individuals and families to deal with the issue. "The purpose of F3" said Morford, "is to improve the general understanding of money and finance, if we are to improve the quality of life in America, increase our education level as a nation and slowly become responsible stewards of our money as individuals." The son of former Amorita residents Jim and Marilyn Morford, who now reside in Rio Rancho, N.M., Michael Morford

holds a BS in Engineering and an MBA in Finance from Tulane University. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in Public Policy. He is currently managing director of investment sales for the Texas office of Sterne Agee. Working with Morford to present the conference in Oklahoma City are two other Burlington grads – Brent Kisling and state Rep. Michael Jackson – along with Enid High grads Chris Maupin and Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb. "This event is for the general public, anyone who wants to know more about how to manage their money," said Morford. "It's a unique chance to hear

information that professional investors hear. Presentations will be made by chief operating officers of Continental Resources, Sonic, LSB and other successful Oklahoma businesses. To ensure the availability of enough food for the free meal at the conference, those attending should contact Morford at (512) 787-8717, or Drake Scifers at (405) 323-2720. More information about the conference schedule is available at www.okinvest.org.

“That would increase our mailing costs to $753 a year,” Cloyd said. “That’s a major, major concern for our board and for ourselves.” Cloyd and others present also said residents are afraid closing the post office will take away a way of life for citizens who visit at the post office, learning local news and area events. “We really feel like you are trying to take away the small town feel of who we are,” Cloyd said. Also, Cloyd said she does not want Amorita to lose its zip code like Byron did years ago when the post office there was closed. “That will not change, even if your mail comes out of Cherokee,” Noland said. “You will keep your city identity.” Another resident said she was afraid if the post office closed and residents maintained post office boxes at the Cherokee Post Office that it would look like everyone moved to Cherokee. Rennels said that would not happen, either. Both representatives encouraged each citizen to call their local post offices anytime they had questions, but residents were quick to note that the U.S. Postal Service stopped publishing post office phone numbers in local phone books. “That’s changing,” Noland said. “They’re getting them published again.” She did not give a time frame as to how soon the numbers will be published, but she did indi-

cate that results from the study of post offices being considered for closure will take 138 days from July 26, when the postal service made the announcement. “It will end sometime in the middle of February (2012),” Noland said. Post offices scheduled for closure will notify residents 60 days in advance of shutting down by posting notices on doors. Residents wanted to know what the U.S. Postal Service has done to cut spending, aside from looking at closing rural locations. Noland said the post office will close 300 of its 500 postal plants across the country to start and also has proposed a five-day delivery week. Consolidation of urban post offices also is taking place, along with closing rural post offices, such as Amorita’s. “Are our voices even going to be recognized or is this just a done deal?” Cloyd said. Noland said all comments from meetings and letters will be considered. “It’s not a done deal,” she said. “We’re just here to give you information. I don’t have an answer to that.” She encouraged everyone to fill out surveys that were mailed to every resident in Amorita. “We don’t want rural delivery. We want a post office,” Cloyd said. “If you hear nothing else today, let that be heard. We want our post office.”

County officers take $10,000 pay increase By KORINA DOVE Messenger & Republican Staff Alfalfa County elected officials now make $10,000 more than they did last year. Substantial raises for all officers were passed July 1 with this year’s county budget. During the 2010-11 fiscal year, county officers received $30,000 annually. Now, their paychecks will total $40,000 for the 2011-12 fiscal year. Deputies in each office received a $2,400 annual increase, from $24,300 to $26,700. Janitorial staff salaries went from $18,500 to $23,500. The county employs eight elected officials, 10 deputies and four dispatchers, who are salaried the same as deputies, and one undersheriff, whose annual salary is $29,250. Commission Chairman Doug Murrow said Monday the increases were much needed and will bring salaries closer to what elected officials in nearby counties are making. Murrow provided figures from Woods County, which indicate that elected officials make $52,000 a year, while deputies make about $35,000 annually. “It’s hard to compare us with Woods County because they have a higher tax base,” Murrow said. He could more fairly compare salaries with neighboring Major and Grant counties.

Major County elected officials make about $43,000 per year. Grant County officers are paid $42,000 a year. “We’re still lower than anybody else around us,” Murrow said. The totals for Alfalfa County reflect salaries only. Insurance and benefits are an additional expense. The county pays about $330 per month for insurance for each employee. Murrow said the increases are something the commission has considered for some time and that increases in tax revenues allowed the officers to approve the raises. “As far as budget-wise, we’re doing good,” he said. The courthouse general fund realized more than $400,000 in sales tax revenue for August. “All year last year, for the courthouse alone, we collected about $450,000 – for the whole year,” Murrow said. The courthouse receives 22.5 percent of the county’s sales tax revenues. Emergency medical services receive 55 percent of the county’s sales taxes, while the fairgrounds receive 22.5 percent, like the courthouse. So far this fiscal year, the county has collected more than $2.4 million in sales tax. The 2011-12 estimate of needs was based on collecting $1.7 million in revenues. The county has surpassed that amount by about $640,000.

Sales taxes up... again By STEVE BOOHER Messenger & Republican Staff The dramatic increase in monthby-month disbursement of sales taxes to Alfalfa County and the City of Cherokee by the Oklahoma Tax Commission slowed considerably in August. Receipts in August are based upon collections during the month of June. Alfalfa County's receipts more than doubled – from $103,665 in August of 2010 to $267,673 in August of 2011 – but were significantly less than the nearly $308,000 received in July. Since the energy boom first began appearing on the sales tax charts in October 2010, the county has collected $1,507,572 more in sales tax than during the same 11-month period – October 2009 City Aline Alva Burlington Byron Carmen Cherokee Cleo Springs Goltry Helena Jet Medford Nash Ringwood Wakita Waynoka Alfalfa Grant Major Woods Aline Carmen Cherokee Goltry Helena Jet Alfalfa Grant Major Woods

through August 2010. Cherokee's sales tax receipts are $116,887 more than the same 11-month period, but showed only a slight gain in August. The Tax Commission disbursed $54,865 to Cherokee this month, compared to $51,688 in August 2010 – a $2,877 increase. Every town in the county, with the exception of Carmen, Jet and Goltry, showed an increase in receipts over August 2010. Carmen was down $2,258 from the $6,370 collected a year ago in August, while Jet's receipts were off $1,654 and Goltry was down a modest $152. Statewide, 508 cities and towns received $121,054,470 in sales tax collections for August – an increase of $3,352,346 that disbursed to 505 communities in August 2010.
