Cherokee man charged with false reporting of crime

By Marione Martin Numerous charges have been filed against a Cherokee man. David W. Smock has been charged with false reporting of a crime, stalking and false rumors of a slanderous nature. All are misdemeanors. According to documents on file, on Aug. 24 Smock went to the Cherokee Police Department and told the dispatcher he heard a male subject in Apartment 16 of Chaparral Village Apartments in Cherokee yelling at a female. Smock indicated he thought it was rape. Police Chief David Butler, Assistant Chief Tyler Flaherty and Officer M. Har-

land went to the apartment where Butler knocked on the door five or six times announcing that it was the police. There was no response, so Chief Butler contacted Assistant DA Brian Mitchell who said it was OK to enter the apartment to check the female’s welfare. They obtained a key from the apartment manager and entered the apartment at 11:25 p.m., where they made contact with the residents who had just gotten out of bed. Officers also talked to the residents of the apartment below who said they heard nothing that evening from the upstairs apartment. Earlier on Aug. 24, Smock had two reports of stalking made against him. He was given a copy of the Oklahoma Stat-

ute regarding stalking and harassment at about 1:30 p.m. On Aug. 28 police were contacted by Tialissa Zahnter, resident of Apartment 16, saying Smock went to her next door neighbor’s residence and told her to call the police because Zahnter’s boyfriend was back in her apartment. Officer Flaherty talked to Smock and told him Zahnter wanted him to leave her alone. Zahnter told Flaherty she was scared of Smock. On Aug. 29 Assistant Chief Flaherty talked to two other people who had been told by Smock that Zahnter was in love with him. On Aug. 31, Zahnter filed a protective order against Smock

Substitute teacher faces charges over sexting with student By Marione Martin A woman who worked as a substitute teacher at Timberlake School is facing several charges in Alfalfa County involving a 15-year-old boy. According to documents on file, Makayla Dawn Redding, 34, is accused of sexting with the student and other involvement. On Aug. 28, Alfalfa County UnderSheriff Dennis Frisk contacted Robert Banks, an investigator with the District 26 District Attorney’s office, for investigative assistance with a possible sexual crime against a juvenile male. Frisk said a woman brought in some cellular telephone records from her son’s phone. She had noticed that her bill was more expensive than usual. When she checked, she saw a large quantity of text messages. She went online and saw her son’s cellphone

had registered over 500 text messages in less than a week. She asked her cellphone provider for records of messages between her son’s phone and another number, with over a thousand messages recorded between Aug. 23 and Aug. 27. Banks reviewed the more than 200 pages of records from the boy’s number to a cellular number identified as belonging to Redding. The content of the messages was sexual in nature. He also located codes indicating video and/or photographs that were transmitted back and forth between the two. A search warrant was issued, and officers went to Redding’s home in Helena to seize her cellular phone. She agreed to go to the Helena Police Department and speak with investigators. After being advised of her Miranda rights, Redding spoke to officers in a videotaped interview. She admitted she

and the juvenile began text messaging each other around May of 2012. She said after a few weeks, the boy said he had a crush on her, and they began text messaging back and forth about sex. She said she had sent him at least 20 sexual pictures and made at least three sexual videos. She said about a month ago they were at her house alone and “made out” on her couch. Under-Sheriff Frisk contacted the juvenile male and his parents at their residence. They turned over the boy’s cellphone and signed consent to search the contents of the phone. The juvenile said he got Redding’s phone number from her Facebook account and began texting her about a year ago. He admitted they texted sexual comments, exchanged sexual photographs and sent each other sexual videos. He said that he had sexual intercourse with Redding at her home in Helena in July of 2012. Redding has been charged with two counts of lewd molestation, forcible sodomy, and two counts of transmitting information by computer for purpose of instigating sexual conduct with a minor.

All agree that $2 million estimate for new Alfalfa Fairgrounds building is greatly inflated By Roger McKenzie It’s been two years or so in the conversations at Alfalfa County Fair Board meetings. It’s been talked about and support promised by the Alfalfa County commissioners. Some work has been done in terms of what is needed and an architect has been consulted. But the new building addition at the Alfalfa County Fairgrounds is still far from being completed. Its size, estimated to be 25,000 square feet in the latest discussion on Tuesday, and its final look is still really undetermined and will be until its dimensions and exact exterior and interior spaces can be specified by either a contractor, a building company, or an architect. Those specifications will largely determine the cost of the project. Troy Shepard, president of the Alfalfa County Fair Board, came to Tuesday’s meeting to discuss the new building and the county’s commitment to it. With him were representatives of the Alfalfa County Election Board and the OSU Extension Office. As currently planned, the new addition will include offices for both of those entities to give them more room and to free up space at the Alfalfa County Courthouse.

Cost is a large part of why no action was taken toward building the addition at Tuesday’s county commissioner’s meeting. Shepard brought a preliminary rough estimate of $2 million for the addition, which will also include a loafing area for animals, a concession stand, and handicapped accessible restroom facilities. The unnamed architect’s estimate is about twice the cost mentioned previously by representatives of the Fair Board. The county commissioners’ have mentioned even lower costs for the addition. Shepard wanted to know if the commissioners were still willing to support part of the cost of the building. Commissioner Chad Roach answered yes to that question, but neither he nor the other commissioners could say how much the county would commit to in the light of an estimate that they unanimously, along with Shepard himself, agreed was drastically inflated. After a lengthy discussion, it was decided that the commissioners would try to find someone to “spec out” the building without charging the Fair Board a six percent (of the construction costs) fee as proposed by the architect. It was not completely clear if that six percent would have also included ongoing oversight of the construction. It was also not clear if county in-kind contributions such as dirt work for the foundation would constitute part of the county’s financial support for the build-

ing. A Fair Board meeting will be held later this month, and a commissioner will try to be present to discuss the building further. Road crossing permits Just two road crossing permits requests were on the meeting’s agenda — totaling just $5,000 in fees. Both were in District 2. In a related matter, the commissioners made some changes to road and bridge accounts to make for easier accounting. They moved the remaining funds from the T-5 account to the T-2A account, effectively combining those two accounts. The T-5 account was then converted to one in which all road crossing permit fees will be deposited. According to commissioners, those fees are mandated to be used for repairs and related costs that the county undertakes as a direct result of the crossings. The new account fund will make it easier to account for those maintenance and repair costs. But, according to Commissioner Chad Roach, the maintenance and repair costs are gobbling up most, if not all of the fees generated. “In reality, I think we’re losing money,” he said. Other business In other business, the commissioners approved minutes of their previous meeting, maintenance and operations warrants, blanket purchase orders, appropriations, and lapsed appropriations.

Lynn Says

Former resident tells of housing restriction experience By Lynn L. Martin Last Friday, the Alva Review-Courier published an opinion piece I had written regarding the request to the city council to restrict how many people could live in a house. It was intended for last week’s Newsgram, but got bumped for lack of space. A comment, which was very interesting, was made on our newspaper web site. So, I’m going to devote my usual space to the reprinting of that comment. Here goes. I’m the one that Lynn is quoting in his editorial. I am a former Alva resident, and I even owned rental property in Alva not too long ago. I currently live in the southeast US, where migrant farm workers created a very similar “crisis” in the community. The cities and counties dealing with the issue put ordinances in place to limit housing to 2 adults per bedroom. It

worked fine until an advocacy group filed a lawsuit against the city ordinances. After several millions of dollars, the Federal Court deemed the ordinances unconstitutional on a couple of merits. First of all was the right to assemble. It seems you can’t limit people from peaceful assembly and having multiple people in a single dwelling does constitute assembly, unless they are disturbing the peace. The second issue dealt with the illegal search and seizure clause. There is no legal way for any law enforcement to gain access to a residence without a judge signing a search warrant. In order to do that, you have to prove some sort of justification for the warrant. The trouble and expenses the local municipalities incurred for their trouble was not worth it. The reasonable solution was to limit parking to paved driveways, which by code can only be so big, and commercial vehicles were not allowed to park overnight in areas zoned residential. One of my former homes I owned here had, after I sold it, 15 migrant workers living in it. It is a 3 bedroom home. My former neighbors didn’t like it, com-

plained, but there was little that could be done about it. Even before the Federal courts got involved, the workers said they were cousins and the issue was null. “Informed” and “Caroline” (other commenters on the web-site) need to understand that it doesn’t matter how many people sign a petition. If the petition itself is indefensible, it cannot stand. As it was already mentioned, limiting parking to paved areas won’t work because people will still park on the lawn. If you can’t enforce a very public disregard for codes, how do you plan to enforce what happens behind closed doors. By the way, doesn’t Oklahoma still have sodomy laws on the books? How’s that working? I thought I’d throw that in there for thought. One other point: A few years ago in New York City, some local health nazis tried to make apartments non-smoking. It didn’t go too far as the judicial system said they couldn’t allow a group to restrict a legal act in their own home. Unless the written leases state that no more than x number of people can live in a dwelling, the petitioners have very little to stand on, except emotion. The most legal way to deal with the issue is to buy out the landlords and write your leases to suit you. Oh, but then it would be YOUR money at stake, not someone else’s. I truly think greed is the real issue at play. A few people are making some easy money, and the others aren’t. Alva can embrace the influx of commerce or, as it has done in the past, raise its nose and make the patronage go to a community that will welcome the income.

Carmen man charged with concealing stolen property By Marione Martin When Kevin Irwin of Carmen spotted what looked like his property at someone’s house, he contacted the Alfalfa County Sheriff’s Department on Aug. 27. According to the affidavit in the case, Deputy Sheriff Blake Trekell then went to Carmen where he spoke with Josh Irwin. Josh said the items had been stolen from behind their shop on Grand Street. They went to the shop where they talked to Kevin Irwin who was sitting behind the shop in a pickup in the alley, and to Thomas Harper who appeared agitated with Kevin. Trekell told Harper to go back to his yard, while he talked with Irwin. Kevin said he had noticed an air conditioning unit sitting in the neighbor’s yard, that he had noticed missing about two weeks ago from the yard behind his shop. He said that day, while he was unloading equipment into his

shop, he noticed an a-coil was missing from a job he had previously done. He went to the neighbor’s yard to look at the air conditioner and identified it to be the one stolen. He left, but decided he should go back and take a photograph of the property. When he returned, he found the property had been moved, but he saw Harper loading a squirrel cage fan into the back of his pickup. He said he recognized it as being from one of the units behind his shop. He checked and saw the unit was missing. Trekell went to Harper’s property and spoke with him. He asked where the air conditioner had gone, and Harper said he didn’t know anything about it, and he had never taken anything from the property and had never scrapped any air conditioners. With Harper’s permission, Trekell looked inside a small building and a travel trailer on the property. While looking in the

building, he saw what appeared to be air conditioner parts concealed behind a privacy fence. Trekell asked Harper’s permission to bring Kevin Irwin in the yard, then took him to look over the privacy fence. Harper became nervous. Irwin identified a part as one of his a-frame coils. Irwin returned to his shop while Trekell questioned Harper, who said the only time he had been in the enclosure was to remove his dead duck. He showed Trekell the duck in a trash can in front of the residence. However, during more questioning he told Trekell he took the coil from behind the shop. Trekell asked him about the squirrel cage fan, and he took him to the dumpster to the south of his residence where Trekell retrieved it. Harper has been charged with knowingly concealing stolen property, a felony.

Woman Obituaries charged with forgery Checks written on grandmother’s account

By Marione Martin On June 22, Tressie Folgers reported to the Alfalfa County Sheriff’s Office that she had received a call from Farmers Exchange Bank in Cherokee that her checking account was overdrawn. She said the signature on the checks did not match her signature, and the check numbers were higher than the checks she was using. She then checked her bank account at Alva State Bank in Burlington and noticed two checks she had not written. Folgers said she looked in her box of checks and saw she had a book of checks missing. According to the documents on file, three checks were written to Toni’s Express Stop, two were to Pizza Hut, four to Jiffy Trip and one to Alco, all in Cherokee. There was also one to the City of Enid. Folgers returned to the sheriff’s office on June 29 and told them she went to Enid to see if they could tell her who had written a check on her account. She said the check for $88 was given to them by Sonja Kiwia of Helena, for a brown pit dog. Kiwia gave them her address, phone number and a copy of her driver’s license. Folgers said that on July 6 or 7 she confronted her granddaughter, Sonja Kiwia, and she admitted she had done it because she didn’t have any money. Sonja Dionne Kiwia has been charged with second degree forgery, a felony.

Rash of haybale row Payroll, road crossings, fires in Barber County fund transfer fill Alfalfa By Yvonne Miller In a time of drought, hay to feed cattle is a precious commodity. Tons of hours of hard work and money goes into creating hay bales from planting to baling. There’s the cost of fuel, labor and equipment. Someone is senselessly destroying that commodity, by setting hay bale rows on fire. Even if a farmer/rancher is insured, where are they supposed to find more hay to feed their cattle when hay is not plentiful. The Barber County Sheriff’s office confirmed they’ve recently had three calls of hay bale row fires. Insurance agent Cornona Hoch said she’s heard, by word of mouth, about six or seven bale burning incidents in Barber and Harper counties in Kansas. Calls to the sheriff’s departments of Alfalfa and Woods Counties in Oklahoma and Harper County in Kansas, found no recent official calls of hay bale fires there. A spokesperson at the Barber County Sheriff’s Department said they are actively following up on leads.

end of month meeting

By Roger McKenzie End of the month payroll was approved, along with just two other items at a Friday (Aug. 31) meeting of the Alfalfa County commissioners. Twenty road crossing permit requests were approved. District 1 and 3 each had eight requests, while District 2 had four. Fees for those permits total $14,750. District 1 had just over half of that total — $7,750. The fees for Districts 2 and 3 were $2,000 and $5,000, respectively. The only other order of business was a District 1 transfer of $10,000 from a maintenance and operations account to a cash outlay account to complete the purchase of a new belly dump trailer that was recently approved.

Hayden Nickel and Kayla Castle

Kiowa was in the midst of a crisis in the spring of 2010. There was no licensed childcare available to serve the citizens of Kiowa and the surrounding communities. Childcare is a critical piece of social infrastructure that supports children’s development and facilitates parents’ employment. The community daycare solution diverted a huge crisis for Kiowa. There are now two facilities located at the Kiowa United Methodist Church and at the PreK-6th building. The facilities have helped retain residents and assisted in promoting a strong business climate. Three full time jobs have been created, and over 15 children are served at the facilities. Care is provided by a team of professionals outside of their homes. Therefore, if a provider is ill or absent there is substitute. As a result, employ-

ees don’t have to be absent from work when the childcare provider is ill or absent. The Kiowa community has been, and will continue to be, well served by daycare. The second annual public meeting is scheduled. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, September 5 at the RSI office located at 543 Main in Kiowa, Kansas, at 7 p.m. All interested community residents are invited to attend. This meeting will highlight what has been done, the successes and future plans, and will provide a means of connecting with the community to get feedback and input. We encourage ALL businesses to attend and take an active role in the daycare. Anyone interested in joining the board, please call Keith at 620-825-4961 for more.

Felony forgery charge filed against Cherokee woman By Marione Martin Linda Olson of Amorita reported to the Alfalfa County Sheriff’s Office on July 7 that her wallet, checkbook and purse were missing from her home. According to documents on file, Olson said she called her bank in June and canceled her debit card and requested a new one. Olson said that when she received her bank statement from Alva State Bank, Burlington branch, on July 3, she noticed three checks written on her account to Walmart without her approval. The checks were written for $308.81, $302.03 and $399.05 from June 30 to

July 2. Olson said when she went to the bank, she also noticed that her debit card was used at Walmart to make a payment to HSBC Card Services for $298.47. She said she filed paper work with the bank and signed an affidavit of forgery. On July 20, Olson received a letter from the district attorney that she had a bogus check for $159.45 to Cherokee Jiffy Trip written on July 2. Two other checks were turned in to the district attorney’s office: $79.20 to Cherokee Jiffy Trip and $358.70 to Alco, both dated July 8. Olson told the sheriff’s department that in March her daughter-in-law Lata-

sha Olson was living at her home and she left at the end of April. She noticed her purse was missing when Latasha moved out. On July 31, Deputy Dennis Frisk arrested Latasha Olson on a bogus check warrant from an earlier charge. In a post Miranda interview, Latasha said she wrote two checks to Alco and Jiffy Trip on July 8. Asked about the checks and debit card used at Walmart, she said she did not remember because at that point she was using meth. Latasha Olson of Cherokee was charged Aug. 20 with second degree forgery, a felony.

Cherokee man arrested for domestic abuse By Marione Martin Michael Jeffrey, 41, of Cherokee has been charged in Alfalfa County with domestic abuse in the presence of a child, a misdemeanor. According to the investigating officer’s affidavit, on Aug. 10 Jessica Jeffrey walked up to the Cherokee Police Department where Assistant Chief Tyler Flaherty and Officer Mike Harland were standing. She told the officers her husband Michael had fought with her, hit her in the face and threatened her with a knife. They took her to her residence where she stayed in the vehicle with Harland while Flaherty went to talk to her husband. Michael said that he had hit her but while he was sleeping, she punched him in the side of the face around the ear area. Flaherty did not see any red marks on his ear, but did see some red on the side of his face. The officers explained to the couple

that they were not going to arrest anyone, since they had dependent children in the home and Jessica’s father was dependent on them for everyday chores. On Saturday, Aug. 11, at about 5:12 p.m. Flaherty was contacted by dispatch that two kids had arrived at the police department and one wanted to talk to him. One said that Michael called and said he was going to “beat his butt” if he did not put his mom on the phone. Then Michael showed up at the house and his mother told the kids to run. Flaherty and Deputy Geber drove to the Jeffrey residence. Despite makeup, they could see that Jessica Jeffrey had

bruising around her eyes. Flaherty arrested Michael and booked him into the Alfalfa County Jail. Police Chief David Butler, Flaherty and Geber met at the Nature Park located in the 400 block of West Main in Cherokee where they searched for the knife. Chief Butler found a knife at that location.

Block grant, belly dump trailer bids top Alfalfa commissioners’ meeting By Roger McKenzie Contractors for the Community Development Block Grant to improve accessibility at the Alfalfa County Courthouse have been hard to find. Twice bids have been advertized; and twice none have been received. That allows the county to go shopping on its own for contractors. Two have been identified and the county commissioners at their regular meeting on Monday voted to allow Alfalfa County Commissioner Doug Murrow and Mareta Woodward of the Northern Oklahoma Development Authority to contact and discuss with them their willingness to do the work. NODA has helped secure the grant and is administering it. Mitch Reed, who owns a construction company in Kiowa, has been identified as interested in repaving the sidewalks in front of the courthouse and in renovating the bathrooms to make them more handicapped friendly.

John Waller, of Waller Glass in Enid, will be approached about replacing some entrance doors with automatically opening doors. One item concerning the renovation could stir up some controversy. It was mentioned at Monday’s meeting that repaving the front sidewalks might require the removal of the large Ponderosa pine tree in front of the courthouse. That tree has been the subject of previous battles over its existence. It is officially the second largest Ponderosa Pine tree of the scopulum variety in the state. Belly dump trailer bids Commissioners opened two bids for a belly dump trailer. The low bid of $37,150 was accepted from Irwin Trailer Company of Meeker. The bid was $50 lower than one from Southwest Trailers of Oklahoma City and included an electrically controlled tarp, which the Southwest bid did not. Road Crossing permits Twenty-one road crossing permits were approved Monday. The fees totaled $20,750. District 1, as it usually does, had the most permit requests (15) and received most of the fees ($17,750). District 2 only had one permit ($500 fee), while District 3 had five permits ($2,500 in fees). Action on internet Internet service at the courthouse has been problematic recently due to some equipment needs. As with the grant mentioned above, getting people to fix the problem has been difficult. According to the county, AT&T, the service provider, has been reluctant to do the work until a billing problem has been resolved. At Monday’s meeting, Commissioner

Murrow said he had talked to a person from Piedmont who can provide the equipment needed and install it throughout the courthouse for between $5,000 and $6,000. The commissioners agreed to hire the Piedmont man and to seek the advice of the district attorney concerning the billing question. Courthouse maintenance vehicle Commissioner’s also agreed that a vehicle for courthouse use was needed. They gave Commissioner Murrow authority to search for, and secure, a used pickup truck for less than $10,000 for that purpose. The truck would be used to pick up maintenance and other supplies needed by the county. It would be used for local trips, with occasional trips as far as Enid and Alva. Other business In other business, the commissioners: • appointed LaToya Hunter as a receiving agent for District 3. • signed transfer forms for the use of five steel beams being recycled from the rebuilding of the Oklahoma City crosstown I-40 expressway. The beams, the first of many more that will be utilized in the area, will help build a District 2 bridge one and a half miles south of Carmen. • accepted three more six month bids — this time for liquid road oils and emulsions. • officially signed a mineral lease agreed to at a previous meeting. The lease with Sandridge is for county owned property known as Fellers Farm. It is for approximately three acres that the District 1 shop sits on. • approved minutes of the previous commissioners’ meeting, maintenance and operations purchase orders, and blanket purchase orders.

Northwestern Alumni Association to host Boot Hill Bowl reunion The Northwestern Oklahoma State University Alumni Association is welcoming back members of the Boot Hill Bowl team for a weekend reunion and recognition during the Rangers’ football home opener Saturday, September 8. The 1971 Ranger football team won more games than any previous team fielded by Northwestern, and earned the school’s first post-season bowl game invitation to the Boot Hill Bowl. The weekend’s activities kickoff with the Third Annual Ranger Kick-off BBQ Friday, September 7, at 7 p.m. The event, supporting the Ranger football program, is sponsored by Stan and Mary Stack and hosted by Greg Baker. Tickets are $50 per person. For more information, contact Alan Hall, head football coach, at 580-327-8488. Saturday, the 1971 teammates will get a behind-the-scenes look into Ranger athletics more than 40 years later, with a tour of Ranger Field facilities at 1 p.m.

Members of the Boot Hill Bowl team will also take part in the pre-game meal with the team before the current Rangers take on Colorado State-Pueblo at 7 p.m. The 1971 team will be recognized at halftime. The team finished the 1971 season 7-3 overall and 5-3 in conference play, tying for fourth place in the Oklahoma Collegiate Conference. On December 4, 1971, the Rangers traveled to the Boot Hill Bowl in Dodge City, Kan., where they met opponent Dakota State College of Madison, S.D. On a snow covered field, Northwestern led through most of the game, but in the end, the Rangers were not victorious, losing 23-20. Ranger Maurice Hill was chosen the outstanding defensive player of the game, and members of the team earned a number of individual honors for their

efforts during the season. Standout defensive tackle Herschell Mosier was named NAIA All-American first team and Oklahoma Collegiate Conference Defensive Player of the Year. He also set a school record by kicking 12 consecutive extra points. A new single-season rushing record was set by freshman Ron Lee, who amassed 1,079 yards in 10 games. Hill, linebacker, and Darrell Smith, offensive tackle, were named first team allconference. Lee, fullback, Johnny Will, end, Max Kissell, halfback, and Gordon Gottsponer, guard, were second team all-conference selections. For more information on the Boot Hill Bowl Reunion or to register, please call Lizabeth Richey, director of alumni relations, at 580-327-8594 or email her at lrrichey@nwosu.edu.
