Some folks will try any advertising method but the tried and true one. Here’s how to succeed in business. The Newsgram reaches virtually every person in three counties.

Listen to Seneca West who tells about results. Named Outstanding Site Manager of the Year for Western Property Management. I started my job as site manager of the Chaparral Village Apartments in Cherokee, OK a year and seven months ago. At that time, ten of the twenty-four units had tenants. For the first year, there was very little advertising for the property and most of the empty units remained empty. A year into my site managing, this property starting running a regular weekly ad in the Newsgram and I noticed a difference in the amount of activity in my office. Our occupancy is up to twenty-one filled units and there are several people on a waiting list. I believe the Newsgram was a great help in filling our empty units because it covers such a wide area.

Share Hospital sells home health agency By Lynn L. Martin At the June regular board meeting, Alva Hospital Authority Chairman Jason Gaisford told the other board members the finance committee was now meeting weekly to better study what changes can be made so the hospital can survive the low inpatient use they have been experiencing. Gaisford said nearly all other hospital service usage is up except for that. At a special noon board meeting on Friday, June 28, a thick contract was approved that at the end of July the Share Home Health Care Agency would be sold to Share Home Health, LLC, for a sum of $50,000. The Alva hospital will provide to the new provider the patient care records appropriate for continuing home health care services for Alva area clients. Also, a few items of office equipment, such as a couple of computers, are being sold. Gaisford said, “Share Medical Center’s home health care service has been unprofitable for five or six years and we need to divest ourselves of unprofitable sections of our business.” He explained that the headquarters of the new home health care provider is located in Fairview and has had a continuing and profitable home health care service for some time. “It’s the only thing they do,” he said. Board members asked questions as to whether Share Medical Center (SMC) will lose referrals to the hospital that used to come when SMC owned the home health care service. Gaisford replied that certainly had gone through their minds and they believed there were two advantages in selling to the Fairview people. One was that they are not associated with The Alva Review-Courier / Newsgram is published Wednesday by Martin Broadcasting Corp. 620 Choctaw St. Alva, Oklahoma 73717 Lynn L.

any other hospital and they were about the only choice around that was not; and, two, the Fairview hospital is an affiliate of Saint Anthony Hospital as is Alva. Some Employees Asked to Work Fewer Hours Chief Executive Officer Kandice Allen mentioned that in other cost cutting efforts, employees who are not involved directly in patient care are being asked to cut four hours per week. She explained, “For example, if I work 80 hours per 2 week period, I’ll be cut to 72 hours.” Patient Portal Contract Approved The board somewhat grudgingly approved the purchase a sizable amount of Dell computer equipment needed for the “Patient Portal Install Project 13-1392” at a price of $69,986.05. This is Phase II of the electronic health records (EHR) project of the federal government. If hos-

pitals wish to retain their Medicare business from the federal government, they had to agree to participate in the EHR requirement of ObamaCare. Gaisford said the hospital is supposed to receive reimbursement (over $1 million) in November for completion of Phase I of the EHR project. Big Chiller Out of Service The huge water chiller that was installed as part of the remodeling project quit working on Tuesday of this past week. Allen said, “It is a warranty repair, and they are telling us the parts will be in for a repair on either Saturday or Monday.” In the meantime, huge fans were located in the hallways to help direct air from portions of the building with separate air-conditioning to alleviate heat in the older part of the building served by the new chiller.

Bar altercation leads to felony charges By Marione Martin A Byron man is facing two felony charges following an incident at a bar the night of May 9. Steven Clint Mathis, 34, has been charged with indecent exposure and burglary second degree. According to the arrest warrant, a bartender at Sug’s Anchor Inn in Nescatunga contacted Alfalfa County Deputy Michael Dods about Mathis causing a disturbance in the bar. He asked if he needed to go to the bar, and she said no because Mathis had left. She would call if he came back. About 12:30 a.m. May 10, Dods received a call from dispatch that Mathis was having an altercation in his driveway. As Dods prepared to leave, he received another call saying Mathis did not want deputies to come to his residence. Dods went ahead and drove to the bar in Nescatunga. He talked to the bartender who said Mathis had started an altercation in the bar and was asked to leave on three separate occasions that evening. Later that day, Dods drove back to Nescatunga to talk with several of the patrons who were in the bar the previous night. He spoke to four people who said Mathis started the disturbance and was asked to leave. When he didn’t want

to leave, he was forced out by several bar patrons. Mathis came back into the bar and tried again to start a fight. Again the bartender and patrons asked him to leave. When Mathis came back in front of the plate glass window of the bar, he unzipped his pants, exposed himself and rubbed on the window. He then tried to get back in the bar but patrons forced him out and locked the door. On May 13 Dods talked by telephone with Owen Crosslin about the disturbance in the bar with Mathis. Crosslin was out of town at the time but on May 14 he went to the sheriff’s office to make a statement. He said that once Mathis had been kicked out of the bar, he thought it was all over. When he went out to his car to leave, he found his car had been ransacked and the keys that had been sitting in the center console were gone. Everything that had been in the center console and glove compartment was strewn around the car and in the street. The bartender said she knew where Mathis lived and would take him to get his keys.

Burlington School Board will have over $500,000 carryover By Yvonne Miller Burlington’s board of education met for its regular July monthly meeting Monday night. Members present were Allison Armbruster, Aaron Smith and Terry Graham. Beth Guffy was ill and did not attend the meeting. Others present were Superintendent Glen Elliott, Principal Shane Feely and minutes clerk Mary Anne Hathaway. Elliot said he has not yet received revenue collections from the county treasurer, so his figures are guesstimates. He estimates Burlington’s carryover should be between $650,000 to $700,000. “We’ve scrimped and saved for a few years. This additional money gives us an opportunity to make updates and replace old equipment,” Elliott said. “We’ve already spent about $230,000 this year because we knew we’d have more money. We’ve replaced computers, old machines and equipment, classroom carpeting and more. We picked out the very worst and are replacing this summer. We’ll do more next summer.” Burlington still seeks teachers for pre-K, math and a counselor. Cooks and bus drivers are still needed. Regarding Elliott’s contract, all board members agreed to table this item with negotiation for a salary increase to be discussed in an executive session at the next meeting. The contracts for 12-month employees Fawnda Martin, Marty Martin,

Travis Bradshaw and Mary Anne Hathaway were also signed by the board members. The board approved the property and liability insurance coverage with OSRMT for $18,874.00 and the library automation system. The board approved the encumbrances, change orders and warrants for 2014 as follows: General fund – encumbrances – $184,718.09, payroll accrual – $242,185.34, warrants – $34,795.11, and 2013 reserves – general fund – warrants – $3,286.07, and building fund – Warrants – $ 218.97. Approval of the June activity report was tabled as June’s bank statement had not arrived. The board approved numerous sub accounts for the activity fund for 2013/14 and reviewed and approved the activities calendar and fund raising requests for 2013-14, and adopted the school days to hours policy allowed by HB 1864. Elliott said they had to table approval of changes to the student handbook until further information is available. They also tabled approval of the board policy handbook. The board took care of all the housekeeping issues for the start of new fiscal year 2013-14. Some of those follow: • Approval of Mary Anne Hathaway to the following positions for 2013-14: board clerk, encumbrance clerk, activ-

ity fund custodian and lunch fund custodian; • Elliott as the authorized federal program rep for all state and federal programs for 2013-14; • Elliott, Shane Feely, Hathaway, Marty Martin and Fawnda Martin as authorized receiving agents for BPS for 2013-14; • Authorize Elliott or Feely for second signatures with Hathaway for the school activity and fund expenditures for 2013-14; • Approve the use of “signature facsimile” stamps for the board of education officers; • Approve and sign a resolution authorizing the county treasurer to invest cash on hand that cannot be used at this time for the purpose for which it was intended, to invest these fund in CDs or make other investments authorized by Oklahoma state law, and to make investments at the highest rate of interest available; • Authorize and direct the treasurer to deposit interest derived from investments; • Approval of a corporate resolution to continue a business purchase card agreement with Bancfirst and OSSBA of Oklahoma City and authorize Elliott to enter into an agreement to purchase cards for one or more employees of the school for the account of school activities; and • Approval of Section 125 Flexible Benefits Plan with American Fidelity to allow deductions to be made directly from monthly income prior to taxes for items such as insurance, retirement and child care. In addition, a continuation from last week’s list of surplus items to be disposed of properly was reviewed.

Lynn Says

Amazingly economical dash video cam By Lynn L. Martin Every now and then I see a YouTube Internet video of some wild car crash, usually filmed in Russia. I’ve always wondered why most of these accident scenes come from that country. Well, wonder no more. Apparently almost every private vehicle in Russia is equipped with a dash cam. Why? There is considerable fraud in Russia where people pretend they have been hit by a vehicle and then fake injuries in order to extort cash. In addition, a lot of deliberate collisions occur. Here’s a quote about one such indicident: “A woman ran up to this car, which stopped far short of making contact with her, and began to simulate a hit. She slammed her fists on the hood, which was unconvincing as she was standing in front of a car at a dead stop. The driver was wise to her scheme and even backed up to capture the woman as she threw the contents of her purse around and rolled in the street for effect. “The cops arrived to find her playing dead at the scene. “The first thing the driver did was remove the dash cam for the damning video evidence. Fraud is a major problem on Russian roads, and the purpose of the dash cam is to protect drivers from unscrupulous criminals and traffic cops on the take. NYC-based Russian blogger Marina Galperina wrote that cheaply mounted cameras that record continuously are often more affordable than car insurance in a country rife with hit and runs. Russian courts also would rather see video evidence than testimony in cases that can quickly evolve into hesaid she-said tactics.” In the USA, we’re used to the law enforcement vehicles having dash cams, but not everyday citizens. Because millions of dash cams are being manufactured for European and Russian customers, the prices have fallen to really cheap levels. One can purchase an entire system for about $105 on Amazon.com. Many times I have wished for a dash mounted video recorder as I see drivers do incredibly stupid things in front of me, like violating the no-passing lanes on steep hills. At the end of last year, at night, here in Alva, a fellow in a white pickup truck turned left right in front of me on 4th

Hdvr-150 Car Accident Camera Video Recorder DVR $110 at Amazon.com street. We both slammed on our brakes a few feet before impact. I would guess the impact speed was about 10 mph for both of us. It was enough to do $6,000 worth of damage to his new pickup and about $3,000 to my old van. I wished at the time that I had a video of what happened. It turned out he was a decent fellow and there was no dispute as to what happened. His insurance took care of everything and there were no problems. Anyway, I was amazed to find a hi-def dash cam at such low prices. The camera is mounted within a rear-mirror housing. You simply slip the slightly larger dash cam mirror over your existing rear mirror and the installation work is done. The power cable plugs into a cigarette lighter receptacle. It came with a 4 gig SD card, which won’t record very much video. So Radio Shack had a 32 gig card on sale for about $20. I find that provides sufficient capacity for a day’s worth of driving before it starts re-writing the card. The quality is very good, although not quite good enough to read license plates in front of you. If an incident occurs, you simply pull the card from the video recorder and place it in a card reader on your PC. You can either view it as video or capture still frames. Personally, I think it is great insurance. Too many times I’ve read accident reports where the drivers wildly contradict each other over who was at fault. This device should help put an end to a lot of that.

Cherokee school board Time to buys air conditioners update Carmen playground By Lynn L. Martin In a short end-of-fiscal-year meeting on June 27, the Cherokee Board of Education purchased two Rheem air-conditioning units. One, priced at $14,427, was a roof-top unit for the field house. The other was a $6,117 Rheem Air Source Heat Pump for the grade school music room. Superintendent Cory Ellis said these units have needed replacement for a couple of years. The district agreed to a $1,000 contract with Precision Testing Laboratories, Inc., to perform the annual asbestos inspection and maintenance. The cost is the same as last year’s. Ellis said the district has some unused asbestos-wrapped pipes in older parts of the building.

The board opened bids for the annual copy machine lease. Dirk’s has been providing three copiers for the district at a cost of $280 per month with an allotment of 480,000 copies per year. The district exceeded the quota by hitting 700,000 copies, which causes an extra charge of .005 per click. Copiers Plus had asked to submit a bid. They offered three Sharp copiers capable of 50/60 pages per minute on a 60 month lease for $189 per month with an allotment of 490,000 copies with an overrun charge of .005 per click. The board was concerned that they would be violating state law with a 60 month lease obligation since the law is that a current board cannot obligate a future board except in voter approved matters such as bond issues. Also, the superintendent said they are extremely happy with the fast service they have received from Dirk’s the past year. So the school board voted to continue their copier lease with Dirk’s. In a final action, the board voted to approve the same summer camp stipends set for the 2013-2014 school year to also be used in the summer of 2013.

Carmen Park has sometimes been called the “Crown Jewel” of parks in northwest Oklahoma. The park currently includes the Carmen pool, a new pavilion for meetings and events, outdoor pavilions, a suspension bridge, gazebo, veteran’s memorial and armored tank. A large lake area is available for fishing and wildlife. A baseball diamond is still usable. The fountain has been reworked by several volunteers and is in operation. A large area that is frequently used is the children’s playground. There are three different sites that include playground equipment. Swings, slides, merry-go-rounds, rocking toys and climbing equipment are in frequent use. Some of this equipment is over 90 years old. After almost 90 years it is time to update the equipment for future generations. Donations are being accepted at the Carmen city clerk’s office.

Carmen man fatally Plans for injured in collision Greer Road between semis approved By Marione Martin A Carmen man lost his life in a collision between two semis Monday at 3:45 p.m. in Woods County. The wreck was on Grant Road, one mile west of County Road 270 in the western part of the county. Wallace Burton Cole, Jr., 57, of Carmen was transported to Share Medical Center in Alva by Waynoka EMS then transferred to St. Francis Hospital in Wichita, Kan., by Eagle Med. He was admitted in serious condition with head, trunk internal, trunk external, arm and leg

injuries before succumbing to his injuries. Cole was traveling westbound on Grant Road and entered the oncoming lane prior to a hillcrest and meeting a 2013 Mack semi driven by Eric Russell Cooper, 50, of Hennessey, which was eastbound. Cooper took evasive action and swerved to the left trying to avoid the Cole semi. At the same time, Cole also swerved to the right and back to the westbound lane, striking Cooper’s semi. Both vehicles then left the roadway to the north where the Cooper vehicle overturned, rolling a quarter turn and coming to rest on the driver’s side. Cole was not using his seatbelt but Cooper was. The collision was investigated by Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Randal McCullough assisted by Trooper Cagle, Trooper Wilczek, Trooper Sessions, Trooper Edsall and Trooper Chaloupek. Also assisting at the scene were Woods County Sheriff’s Office, Waynoka EMS, Alva EMS, Freedom Fire Department, Waynoka Fire Department and Alva Fire Department.

By Alex Cole The Alfalfa County commissioners met for a brief special meeting on Friday. During the meeting, plans for the three-mile length of Greer Road to be resurfaced were given to the board for review. A fourth mile of the road will be resurfaced by Woods County. The commissioners voted to approve the plans. The board approved four money transfers during the meeting. The first transfer approved was a total of $3,650 to be moved from the R-2A to the R-1A General Government and Wages fund for maintenance personnel salaries for the remainder of the year. A total of $26.48 was transferred from the R-12 General Government Contingency to the U-3 Excise Board to cover travel expenses for the remainder of the year. Also transferred was a total of $1,472.13 to cover an 11-month reimbursement of the county matching Medicare and Social Security of full-time employees. The money was moved from the R-7 General Government OASDI and Unemployment to the C-1A Treasurer’s Salaries and Wages. Another reimbursement was made to the C-1A fund totaling $2,546.25 for employee retirement.

Hardtner 4th of July celebration explodes for 55th year

By Yvonne Miller When colorful fireworks explode in Hardtner, Kan., on the fourth of July it will be the 55th time. A tiny town near the Oklahoma border, Hardtner plans to hold its traditional all-day celebration Thursday. Look forward to a parade, a tribute to veterans, free pit BBQ beef sandwiches, games and much more. Bob Sterling, who will soon be 84, is synonymous with Hardtner’s celebration as it evolved when his father Ed and neighbor Floyd Clark had a competition of sorts to see who could put on the biggest and best fireworks show for their families. Through the decades, Bob and his wife Sue and eventually their children Steve, Syd and Sam kept the celebration going with the help of practically everyone in the tight-knit community. Remembering those early days, Bob said, “In the beginning (1958) the town spent about $2,000 on fireworks and $500 on meat for the free pit BBQ sandwiches. This year they’ll blow up $10,500 of fireworks and spend $5,000 on meat.” Hardtner’s Chamber of See Hardtner Page 31 Commerce organizes the event.

the 8th Constabulary Squadron as a radio operator and was based in Cham and Augsburg, Germany. Upon his return to the States, Lloyd and Helen Buckingham were united in marriage on June 15, 1947, in Cherokee. He was saved shortly after their marriage. They made their home on the family farm. In 1970, they moved to the farm southeast of Cherokee where they remained until failing health caused them to move to Cherokee. Lloyd’s love for farming began at an early age, learning to drive the tractor at nine years of age. He farmed for over 70 years, raising wheat and catttle. He also loved to do woodworking and spent many years working with his Uncle Paul Jenlink and other local carpenters. He could fix or build almost anything; his conscientious work ethic continues to influence his family. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Helen, of the home; son and daughter-in-law Gary and Launa Jenlink

of Cherokee; daughter and son-in-law Kathy and Lowell Wallace of Sparks; six grandchildren: Ryan and Sherry Jenlink of McKinney, Texas; Aaron and Nikki Jenlink of Broken Arrow; Amy and Deke Koonce of Bethany; Angie and Jason Hughey of Sparks; Alisha Wallace and April Wallace of Sparks; seven great-grandchildren: Tyler, Justin, Brandon and Lauren Koonce; Katlyn, Bryce and Cooper Hughey; and soon to arrive Sydney Jenlink. He is also survived by one brother and sister-in-law, Forrest and Doris Ienlink of Jet. He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters, LaVeta Viers and Glendola Schanbacher, and one infant brother. Memorials may be made to advance research of Parkinson’s Disease. Funeral services were held Sunday, June 30, at the Cherokee Friends Church with Rev. Joe Woods officiating. Burial followed in the Cherokee Municipal Cemetery under the direction of Goodwin Funeral Home of Cherokee.

Altercation They passed the house and had to turn around. As they were approaching the driveway, Mathis came driving out of his driveway in his pickup, blocking their car so they could not move forward. Crosslin exited the car and asked Mathis for his wife’s keys to her car so he could go home. Crosslin said Mathis threatened to kill him with the gun he said he had in the truck. Mathis reached between the seats as if he were attempting to grab something. Crosslin said he feared Mathis was reaching for a gun so struck him in the face and put him in a restraint hold. Mathis went limp and when released he jumped out of his truck and ran into the house. Crosslin looked in the pickup and retrieved his wife’s keys from the front seat.

Vehicle accident on K2 near Hazelton By Yvonne Miller A call came in to the Barber County sheriff’s office Monday night just before 10 p.m. reporting a vehicle accident on K2 Highway two miles north of Hazelton, Kan. It was a one-vehicle rollover. Emergency responders from Kiowa went to the scene with ambulances, the

Jaws of Life and more. Reportedly, the Jaws of Life had to be used to remove the vehicle’s two occupants, who did not receive life-threatening injuries. Barber County Undersheriff Chris Tedder worked the accident; however, he was unavailable at press time Tuesday, so no further details were available.

Jealous man is too persistent By Marione Martin Allen Maher, 49, has been charged with sexual battery, a felony, and breaking and entering, a misdemeanor, in Alfalfa County. Maher is accused of entering a residence where his former girlfriend was sleeping, waking her and touching her sexually. According to documents in the case, on June 24 just after midnight, Alfalfa County Sheriff’s Deputy Blake Trekell

was dispatched to a residence in Amorita. He arrived about 12:22 a.m. and was met outside the residence by the 44 year old woman who had made the report. She said she had been in a dating relationship with Maher that ended four days earlier. She was staying in her mother’s home. She said she had been talking to Maher that evening but became tired and told him she was going to sleep. She said Maher continued to send her mes-

Dacoma Blowout to boost summer blood supply The need for blood doesn’t take a vacation, yet fewer people typically donate during the summer, according to Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI). The Dacoma Fire Department has stepped up to host a blood drive from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., Wednesday, July 3, as part of the Dacoma Blowout celebration. Anyone who is healthy and 16 years or older is

encouraged to give. “For patients in need of blood, there’s no summer vacation,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and chief executive. “That’s why it’s crucial that blood donors take just an hour to donate blood. The lives of our friends, coworkers and neighbors may depend on it.”

Physically incapacitated Dacoma residents can still vote Registered voters who become physically incapacitated after 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 2, won’t have to miss the July 9 special municipal election for the Town of Dacoma, County Election Board Secretary Linder said today. Linder said state law permits registered voters who will be unable to go to the polls because they became incapacitated after 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 2, to vote

on an emergency basis. “Physical incapacitation” includes a variety of conditions – injury, illness, childbirth – that prevent a person from voting in person at the polls on election day. If you think that you or someone you know fits into this category, contact the County Election Board office at 580327-1452 as soon as possible for more information.

sages and make phone calls so she told him she was turning her phone on silent. When she would not respond, she said Maher called her mother’s house phone. She told him not to do that because he might wake her mother or the numerous children in the house. She said she then went to lie down on the couch. A while later, she said she woke to find Maher in the residence and touching her stomach. Trekell asked if Maher had ever lived in her mother’s house, and the victim said he had never been there and he was not invited into the house. She said he entered the house through the sliding glass doors. She said Maher was angry and raising his voice so she told him she wanted to smoke so she could get him out of the house and not wake the family. Once on the porch, the woman said she could smell alcohol strongly about Maher’s person. She said he went back and forth from hateful to loving, accusing her of having sex with another man. She said twice she tried to get up from her chair but Maher put his hand on her chest and shoved her back down. She said she finally had enough and stood up and tried to force her way back into the house. She said Maher blocked her way and started grabbing and squeezing her in a sexual manner. She said she was sobbing and begging Maher to quit and leave. She finally began to scream for her mother in the house. She said Maher became afraid and left so she called 911. Deputy Trekell contacted Maher by phone about 1 a.m. and asked if he would tell his side of the story. Maher said he was too tired to talk and would contact him the following day, which he never did. Trekell told Maher he was not to contact the victim or show up at her mother’s home. Trekell asked further questions of the victim and learned she and Maher had lived together in Kansas but she had left, staying with her sister and then her mother. She said Maher had been physically abusive in the past and that he was extremely jealous. She said in the last altercation they had in April he had “choked her for several seconds” but she did not report these incidents. Later Trekell ran Maher’s criminal history report and found he had been arrested on a prior instance of domestic violence in Colorado and once for child abuse.

Couple requests new bridge on land in Alfalfa County By Alex Cole At a regular meeting on Monday, the Alfalfa County commissioners were visited by Jerry and Connie LaGrow. The couple attended the meeting to discuss a bridge on their farm land in need of replacement. They presented the commissioners with pictures of the stone bridge, which is totally dilapidated. Jerry LaGrow said he had talked to a commissioner years ago and was informed that the bridge would be included in the five-year plan. He said he then spoke to a commissioner a few months ago and was

told the bridge is not in the plan. LaGrow said he is uncomfortable hauling hay across the bridge for fear that it might collapse. “We haul to Jet, and we have to go around north and then back,� said LaGrow. County Commissioner Doug Murrow told the couple that the bridge would be approved for the five-year plan. The commissioners also said it would be a possibility to move the project up on the list. The board spent the remainder of the meeting approving minutes, M & O warrants, blanket purchase orders and road

crossing permits. After approval of the road crossings, monthly highway expenditures and the allocation of alcohol beverage tax were approved. The last item approved on the agenda was a resolution directing deposit of reimbursement for the election board. There were a total of 26 road crossing permits motioned for approval during the meeting. District 1 held five permits at a cost of $6,000, District 2 had eight permits submitted at a total of $11,250 and District 3 had 13 road crossing permits totaling $0. The sum of all three districts was $17,250.

Viewing platform under construction at Little Sahara State Park Girl Scout Troop #969 of Alva has obtained a grant through the Challenge and Change program to place a gazebo on the walking trail near the Homestead. The above group solicited the Alva Kiwanis Club for physical help in erecting the device in a couple of weeks. From left: Jazmine Vest, Leah Maier, Cathy Vest, Calissa Fouts and leader Judy Neilson.

More than a thousand acres of sand dunes at Little Sahara State Park at Waynoka are a playground for owners of All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) from across the region. The fascination and beauty of the dunes has been unavailable, however, for visitors without a proper vehicle for driving on the dunes. That is changing. A viewing platform is being constructed by the Oklahoma Department of Tourism at the north entrance to the park. The wooden platform, which is large enough for a group, will be accessed by a lengthy ADA-compliant ramp. The viewing platform will increase visitors to the park and provide enjoyment to visitors that could not otherwise enjoy the sand.

Rape charges filed against Burlington man By Marione Martin A Burlington man is facing five felony charges in Alfalfa County District Court. Anthony Richard Barnett, 34, has been charged with three counts of rape second degree as well as one count each of rape by instrumentation and sodomy – victim under 16 years. According to documents in the case, Alfalfa County Deputy Michael Dods was contacted by a Department of Human Services (DHS) worker to take a 14 year old foster child to Enid to see a sexual assault nurse examiner on May 15. The child had recently been moved

to a new foster home. Dods and the DHS worker then spoke with the girl’s previous foster parents, Anthony and Bonnie Barnett. Dods questioned Anthony Barnett about what had happened in his home in reference to the girl. Barnett said he had not had any type of sexual contact with the girl although he described her as being sexually aggressive toward him. As he described some of the girl’s actions, Dods asked him why he did not call DHS to get them involved. Barnett said he never gave in to any of her advances and he thought he could handle it. On June 20, DA Investigator Robert Banks conducted a forensic interview with the foster child regarding her allegations against Barnett. She said they had sexual relations from March 2013 to the first part of May 2013. Deputy Dods also spoke with a counselor at Northwest Behavioral Health in Alva about problems she might have seen when Barnett and the foster child came in for counseling. She said they acted more like junior high children than a foster father and foster daughter. She said she had “red flags immediately.” Barnett’s initial appearance before a judge was June 25. A $60,000 bond was posted for his release. The next hearing date is set for Aug. 14.
