Kidnapping charges filed in Carmen case By Marione Martin Kidnapping charges have been filed against two Carmen residents. The alleged kidnapping took place on March 23 about 7:30 a.m. in Carmen. According to documents in the case, the child’s mother Bridget Beebe said she was asleep in bed with her daughter, age 2, when Thomas Zeek Harper, 40, “bashed in” the door and forced his way into the residence. Bridget told Alfalfa County Deputy Sheriff Blake Trekell that Harper said he was there to get some clothes. Bridget saw her sister, Latasha Leann

Bebee, 29, standing in front of the house by a blue Lincoln Town Car and holding the door open. Bridget said that Latasha called “get her and come on.” She said Harper then grabbed the two-year-old and ran out, putting the child in the car. Bridget said she and Harper had been separated and apart for approximately four weeks and Harper had no contact with the child during that time. Bridget said Harper left her to be with her sister Latasha. Bridget said she feared the child was endangered as family members told her Harper and Latasha had

Arrest causes teacher moves at Freedom ISD By Roger McKenzie Some teacher shuffling was in order after a Freedom teacher was arrested in Woodward County and charged with selling methamphetamine to a confidential informant of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and to an undercover OBN agent there. The official charges filed against long-time Freedom Public School teacher Debra Bixler following her arrest over the weekend of March 24 consisting of two felony counts of distribution of a controlled dangerous substance – methamphetamine. The alleged crimes were detailed in the Woodward News on March 26. Bixler has taught at Freedom since 1991 and was the fifth and sixth grade teacher there. That officially changed Wednesday (March 27) at the monthly meeting of the Freedom Public School Board when board members approved promoting Erin Thrash and moving another teacher up to take over for Bixler. Thrash is a certified teacher who has been filling the role of a teaching assistant since the first of October. In the moves, she is now the school’s third and fourth grade teacher. The current third and fourth grade teacher, Jeanne Weber, will move up and take over Bixler’s position. The only cost to the district, other than the loss of a teacher assistant, is the additional salary for 38 days of full-time work for Thrash. That amounts to just over $6,600. Thrash was also hired as the district’s summer reading instructor. She will teach reading mostly to third graders who need help with reading. The

program will be held four days a week and four hours a day from June 6-30. Thrash’s compensation will be $1,280. Freedom High School students will get credit for graduation purposes for math and science classes taught at Northwestern Technology Center, after the board approved a housekeeping item to maintain that credit. Plain Talk About Truck Purchase Some frank comments were heard from board member Shane Morris concerning an agenda item regarding specifications and quotes for a new vehicle for Agriculture. He came out strongly advocating a “pretty plain” truck – single wheels, two wheel drive, gasoline powered crew cab truck. He made his reasoning perfectly clear. The current vehicle is a 2001 model that was much fancier when it was new. Although it is definitely in need of replacement, it has also clearly been abused, according to Morris. He should know, since he services it and other school equipment at his place of work. “It was a nice vehicle. It has been abused,” he said. Discussion included getting a truck without a pickup box. A flat bed on the chassis instead of a box would be even less expensive, but apparently just as useful. Gas mileage will also be a big consideration to help hold down costs. Superintendent Danny McCuiston presented board members with some information as to choices and costs, but after the recommendations of the board, he said he would more forward with getting bids for the vehicle.

Executive Session – No Action An executive session was held to discuss “the purchase, appraisal, of real property,” but after 40 minutes the meeting reconvened with a report of “no votes taken.” No action was also taken on agenda items to nominate candidates to fill the board’s expired Seat Three and to consider fund-raising requests. New Business Discussion Some new business was discussed and action taken. The board approved an addendum to an existing contract with Empower School Services of Yukon. The contract expansion authorizes the company, which is already helping the school’s approximately nine special education students, to take over special education records of the district through the end of the year. They will be tasked with finding old, no longer relevant records (for school district purposes) and contact the appropriate people to come and pick them up. After a good faith effort is made, the no longer needed files are subject to being destroyed. The extra service will cost the district about $1,000 a month for the remaining two months of the school year. Earlier in the meeting, the board listened to reports by McCuiston and Principal Brett Hill. They approved the meeting’s consent agenda, including activity fund expenditures and encumbrances for the general fund, the building fund and the child nutrition fund.

Lynn Says

The valuable ‘stroke’ theory in psychology

By Lynn L. Martin Back in the 1970s when I was very interested in psychology, my wife and I hung around with a Northwestern psychology professor and his wife. We traveled to many psychology seminars and I eventually ended up with that as my degree major. I thought I would recount what I think is the most important idea that I learned from those trips and that association: the stroke theory of behavior. First, let’s make it clear we’re not talking about the medical use of the term stroke where a blood clot disables part of the brain. In psychology, a stroke is some form a communication. And we have many forms available: touch, talking, eye-contact, gestures, expression, voice tone and so on. Also, the stroke world is divided into positive and negative strokes. Here’s where it gets useful. When we are infants, we develop a stroke quota. If we’re the first child, and we have both parents to hold us (touch strokes), and make goo-goo (voice strokes) sounds at us, we develop an expectation that we’re en-

titled to that amount of attention. If there are nearby grandparents, they can (and will) pile on the attention strokes, and the child soon becomes what we call spoiled. That’s actually okay. A child thrives and grows with such strokes. The more often people talk (not baby talk) to that infant, the quicker the child will learn to talk on his or her own. When a second child comes along, it gets messy. The parenting strokes and grandparenting strokes are now divided between the two kids. By now, the first kid has developed his stroke expectations (quota) and when that is cut in half, he is hacked off. The hacked-off kid will now take on behavior to attract strokes. This might be cute attention-getting behaviors we call showing off. If that doesn’t attract enough attention, then the kid turns to misbehavior because that also attracts strokes, albeit negative ones. Even so, negative strokes are better than no strokes at all. There’s good proof of this in our prison system. When a prisoner misbehaves, many institutions place the inmate in solitary confinement. That’s 100 percent deprivation of strokes. So if you back off and look at this, the removal of strokes is the worst punishment they can legally do. Going back to children, I was taught

in those seminars, that our stroke quota is permanently established as a child and it is not going to change. That means the oldest child will need more strokes throughout his life compared to the second or third child who develop lifetime stroke quotas that are much smaller. The exception to this if there is a late child like my granddaughter, Addie. Besides parents and grand-parents, her six siblings are enough older that they don’t attempt to compete for strokes, but they take on parent-like responsibilities, and that enormous amount of stroking will certainly make her a stroke hog. The key point I had hoped to get across is if later in life, we don’t get enough strokes to meet our long ago defined stroke quota, we turn to self-stroking to fulfill that need. Self-stroking can be both bad and good. For example, cigarette smoking is self-stroking. If you try to give it up, you’d better find something very soon to replace those strokes. Have you ever heard people complain they put on weight when trying to give up smoking? The main reason is they have replaced cigarette strokes with food strokes. I once saw a Time magazine headlined “Reach for your mate instead of your plate.” The article suggesting replacing food strokes with sex strokes with your partner. The strokes are certainly of sufficient quality, but your partner may run for the hills if they are not on-board with this substitution. See Says Page 10

Says Sometimes people can successfully give up bad habits by figuring out a way to substitute for cigarette or Diet Coke strokes by finding an endeavor where you receive lots of praise strokes from others. Perhaps you can mentor little kids in reading. That keeps your mind off your craving, but also you receive replacement strokes from the delighted faces of the little kids you are helping. If your cravings are huge, you may have to devote many hours to this substitute. In my career, I’ve found that most human behaviors, including mine, can likely be explained or immediately enhanced by viewing it through a stroking lens. If some bride comes to me and says, “I want you to shoot my wedding because I know you will produce the best wedding pictures in the world,” you can bet that I will do ANYTHING to deserve that stroking praise, and I will be hoping for big reward strokes if I succeed. Women flock to beauty shops, clothing stores and nail salons because they want strokes praising their looks. Both men and women tolerate working out in gyms for the same reason. As I said, most anything can be figured out with the stroke theory.

Waynoka School Board presented with audit report By Alex Cole Auditor Buddy Carroll began his review of the audit report Monday night at a regular board meeting. He began by saying school districts are authorized to present financial statements on a regular basis. “This means that we don’t have any general fixed assets in our balance sheet, we don’t have any compensated absences, no depreciation schedules,” he said. He reasoned that the school district is not in business to make a profit anyway. Carroll told the board that their district was one of the few that coded to the child nutrition programs correctly. “The state department threw us a yearend curve saying everything has to be identified by a 700 code here and 763 for lunch and so on.” Later he said, “When I was out here doing the audit, I had to move from location to location to accumulate financial expenditures and revenues received by the district.” He suggested that all federal files be stored in one area so they are easily accessed. Carroll said there were no major findings in the audit other than a few internal control procedures. He stated they identified no employee compensations and contracts. “I found where an individual had been paid $331 in excess of the agreed-upon contract,” he claimed. The money had mistakenly been paid to Superintendent Peggy Constien last

year but has since been paid back. Carroll also reviewed the 2010-2011 report, addressing more employee contract concerns. “In that case they were underpaid,” he said. Superintendent Constien responded by saying that the auditor’s concerns have been addressed and will take action to prevent issues in the future. The board members voted to accept the report, which states they understood concerns and are in agreement with Carroll to begin corrective procedures. “The audit went really well,” he concluded. Before discussing the superintendent’s report, Constien announced that this year’s senior class will be the 100th to graduate from Waynoka Schools. Plans have been set in motion to celebrate the event. “That’s a big deal to be the 100th class to graduate,” she said. Constien moved to the financial report next. “Our ad valorem is up but overall we’re still down about $72,000 from where we were last year,” she said. However, expenditures have increased compared to the previous year. Constien reminded the members that money from the general fund is being spent for expenses instead of the building fund. “We’re letting that building fund grow,” she said. Also voted for approval was the 2013-2014 school calendar and the employment renewal of Principal Michael Meriweather.

circuit as a trainer or in later years with Oakley Tack until retirement in the fall of 2009. In between the years of his five daughters finishing their school years, Jack returned to Carmen. While still training, Jack worked for the CarmenDacoma Public School system and for the City of Carmen as a police officer. Jack was a devoted Christian and loved meeting and cooking for the Cowboy Church at Remington Park every Tuesday until his health prevented him from doing so. Grandpa/Papa loved his grandchildren and great-grandchildren very much. He loved when they visited and he could drive them around in the golf cart on the backside of the race track making his rounds to the barns or just driving around in the driveway. Dad could sit for hours in the backyard at grandmother Oakley’s or his backyard in Dacoma watching his mares and young foals play and graze in the pasture. Another favorite pastime was watching his beloved Sooners and recently watching the Oklahoma City Thunder. Jack loved his Oklahoma Sooners and giving all his family and friends “grief” that didn’t believe as he did about the GREAT SOONERS. Preceding him in death are his parents, four sisters, two brothers, infant son Mark, daughter Jackie, granddaughter Jamie, and son-in-law Rusty Schmidt. He is survived by his wife Pat of Oklahoma City; four daughters Sharie Ainsworth and companion David of Bethany, Karla and Blaine Martens of Crescent, Tammie Schmidt of Clinton, Kim and Randy Stelling of Alva; 18 grandchildren, Jennifer Murrow, JR Ainsworth, Chauncey Mallory, Chelsea and Denny Smith, Lacey and Robert Hulett, Bax, Ashley, Joshua, Seth, Jerico and Zedeki Cornelson, Cody, Merilee, Trey, Timara and Alissa Stelling; and 15 great-grandchildren. Jack was also a part of his three stepchildren’s lives, Susan Doss, Sandra Seley and Richard Richey and many family and friends. Memorial contributions may be made through the funeral home to the Cancer Society in memory of Jackie (Oakley) Cornelson, or the Lupus Foundation in memory of granddaughter Jamie Schmidt and son-in-law Rusty Schmidt.

The family will be gathering at the Senior Citizens in Carmen from noon to 1:30 p.m. for lunch. Following lunch the family invites any friends to please stop by and visit before the memorial service. Remembrances may shared with the family at www.marshallfuneralhomes. com.

No business brunch, but county work consumed by commissioners By Roger McKenzie Veggies, beer and oil. A recipe for an alcoholic salad? No, but all three were part of Monday’s Alfalfa County commissioners’ meeting. The Chamber of Commerce and Main Street organizations wanted to move the weekly Farmers’ Market to a more convenient location, and the commissioners agreed. So hungry folks looking for fresh

fruits and vegetables will be able to find them at the market’s new location – the north side of the Alfalfa County Courthouse lawn. The March alcoholic beverage tax allocation totaling $4,295 was also approved. Cherokee and Helena will get almost $3,000 and the other communities in the county will share in the remainder. Oil (and gas) was part of the meeting when the commissioners acknowledged the receipt of the 2012 Mineral Interest Report. The report does not list money earned, but did list 130 county property addresses. Still no salad, but a little green was transferred in two items. One transfer

involved a total of $2,000 paid for parttime salary compensation for work done after the loss of a full-time employee. The second, for $15,000, was for a fulltime maintenance employee who was hired at the beginning of the budget. His salary, while being paid, was not immediately budgeted. In each case, the transfers were simply to correct the appropriate fund accounts involving those remunerations. In other none salad business, the commissioners approved a number of items, including: • road crossing permits totaling $27,525 in fees. District 1 got the lion’s share ($14,755), with District 2 next ($9,270), followed by District 3 ($4,000). • an easement for a temporary road around a bridge being repaired north and east of Cherokee. • the appointment of Gene Kuepfer as requisition officer for Goltry Rescue. • the report of monthly highway expenditures. • monthly appropriations and officers reports, minutes of the previous commissioners’ meeting, maintenance and operations warrants, and blanket purchase orders.
