CROP Walk in Kiowa brings in over $1,400 to help combat world hunger You can still donate until Sunday

By Yvonne Miller Sunday on a gorgeous fall afternoon around 30 Kiowans gathered for the annual CROP Walk to help fight hunger around the globe. Kiowa’s Ministerial Alliance sponsored the walk in Kiowa that also benefits the local food bank. Carra Mayberry, one of the CROP Walk organizers, said the group brought in just over $1,400 Sunday. Anyone who didn’t get a chance to donate and wishes to do so can through Sunday. Contact one of the Kiowa churches.

of the over two-mile walk took walkers past each of Kiowa’s churches. The term CROP Walk has been around so long that some people may have forgotten for what the acronym stands. CROP dates back to the 1940s, originally Christian Rural Overseas Program. The reason for the acronym CROP is gone but the name and life-saving work remains as CROP Hunger Walks in some 1,500 communities across the United States. CROP Walks throughout the United States are coordinated by Church World

Service (CWS). CWS is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization active in more than 30 countries globally and is a member of the ACT Alliance and InterAction. CWS partners around the world inform and inspire advocacy. By communicating with governmental representatives, the United Nations, key international institutions and urging policies responsive to the needs of impoverished people around the world, CWS works toward their goal of creating a world where there is enough for all.

By Yvonne Miller Walk into the physical therapy department at the Kiowa Hospital and you’ll see the pretty new face of a physical therapist who is as down-to-earth as the horses she loves to ride.

Lana Smith may be new to Kiowa, but she was already familiar with the town, as she and her husband J.D. Smith (who is originally from Protection, Kan.) have participated in Kiowa’s Pioneer Days for an estimated 10 years, she said. “I even helped with the longhorn drive down Main Street,” Smith said. A native of Rugby, N.D., Smith graduated from high school there. She earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from South Dakota State. She later earned a master’s degree from Wichita State University (WSU). She graduated from the WSU Physical Therapy program in 2003. A rodeo fan and barrel racer, she met J.D. in college rodeo. He’s now an athletic trainer. They have a 3 ½ year-old son Steele, “who is already into swingin’ ropes,” mom said. The family is living in a rental house, but seeks a home with acreage to house their horses. J.D.’s brother Ty Smith and his wife Jessica reside in Alva. “We love it here,” Smith said of living in Kiowa. “Since we’re both from small towns it feels like home.” Besides her family, horses and barrel racing, Lana said she likes to craft, create vintage jewelry and run. “We’re outdoorsy people.” Smith’s Path to Physical Therapy When injured during her rodeo days, Smith said she had physical therapy. “I had an outstanding lady help me. She inspired me to become a physical therapist. I always knew I wanted a career in the health care industry,” Smith said. “I like helping people reach their goals. It’s fun and challenging.” “I like to personalize care for patients. I ask them for their personal goals

and how I can facilitate to put them where they want to go,” Smith said. “I reach out to others I know to help.” “I like to have fun in here,” Smith said of the physical therapy room. “Our pain receptors tell us there is pain for a reason. We’re not here for pain and torture,” which she said some people call physical therapy. She’s worked in orthopedics over 10 years. “The field of medicine is always changing,” Smith said. “There’s so many advances in surgical care, rehab can now move faster. We change our techniques as necessary.” Every two years the physical therapist is required to take 40 hours of continuing education. “I try to update always and know the latest.” PT Smith and PTA Reeves Offer Rehab at Kiowa Hospital When Smith came onboard at Kiowa Hospital Sept. 3, she joined Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Todd Reeves, who began his job there in June of 2001. Until now, an out-of-town physical therapist came to Kiowa and evaluated a patient and designed a rehab plan for that person that Todd helped. Now, Smith does the initial evaluation and then both she and Reeves work with the patients. “We have a good balance of care for patients,” Smith said. “It’s nice to have a male and female because some patients have a preference. It’s also helpful to have two sets of hands when a patient needs help to move. Todd and I bounce ideas from each other. There are lots of times patients will see both of us.” Lana said she’s so looking forward to the new facility set to open in the late

Burlington School receives Wisdom Foundation Grant; Armbruster board seat open By Yvonne Miller The Burlington Board of Education met for its October meeting Monday night. All members attended, including Beth Guffy, Roger Allen, Allison Armbruster, Aaron Smith and Terry Graham. Others present were Superintendent Glen Elliott, Principal Shane Feely, minutes clerk Linda Gordon and Judy Elliott No other guests were present. Superintendent Elliott apprised the board that the school will receive a $52,000 grant from the Wisdom Foundation at Alva State Bank. This is for new equipment to go in the vo-ag shop when completed. Board members held the required hearing of the proposed 2013/2014 general fund budget. Those budgetary figures are listed in a separate story regarding Burlington School Board’s special meeting held last week. Elliott said the only discussion was the board’s happiness that ad valorem figures have increased. For 2013-14 that number is $30,861,493. Superintendent Elliott also reminded the board that the Board of Education Office No. 4 is up for reelection. That seat is currently filled by Allison Harbormaster. The board approved a resolution calling for an election Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014. If needed, a second election would be April 1.

The filing period for the Board of Education candidate is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Dec. 2, through Wednesday, Dec. 4, at the Alfalfa County Courthouse. With the Burlington Elks basketball season beginning Nov. 5 at Drummond, board members discussed sportsmanship for the upcoming season and reviewed the conduct code. They encourage all fans, administrators, coaches and players to represent our school positively and support our teams. Burlington School Board Business The board approved monthly encumbrances, change orders and warrants, which follow: • General fund: encumbrances, $33,344.45; change orders $1,813.76; payroll accrual, $29,902.95; warrants, $186,777.44; • Building fund: warrants, $117.20 • Child nutrition: encumbrances, $995.79; warrants, $6,704.95 The agriculture education contract as an ongoing vocational program for the 2013-2014 school year received board approval. Until all the little details are finalized, the board tabled giving final approval of plans for the ag education shop and band room. Elliott said the plans are 99 percent complete. Elliott reported the school has zero dropouts. He also said the school re-

ceived an insurance check to help cover damages from lightning strikes believed to have happened before school started in August. HVAC units and more were damaged, he said. Other items approved by the board include the September activity fund report; other academic measures listed for teacher leader effectiveness; a resolution authorizing the school district to issue non-payable warrants at an interest rate not to exceed 8 percent; a resolution authorizing the treasurer to borrow money from various funds of the school district that cannot at that particular time be used for the purpose it is intended; to authorize and direct the school district treasurer to invest those monies as authorized by Title 70, Section 5-115 of the Oklahoma Statutes and to reinvest from time to time as funds are available; to direct the treasurer to deposit the interest derived from all investments into the fund from which the investment was made to be used for general governmental operations as authorized within that fund. Principal Feely Talks Student Achievements and Upcoming Events Principal Shane Feely reviewed the upcoming scheduled events for the month and also listed the following student honors: From the Tulsa Fair: Jenna Maltbie had Supreme Ewe of the 2013 Tulsa State Fair and Grand Champion Ewe at the Great Plains Continental Dorset Show. Maltbie also exhibited the ninth overall Hampshire wether lamb and sixth overall Shropshire wether of the Tulsa State Fair and qualified for the Junior Livestock Auction where her lamb was purchased by Oklahoma Farm Bureau and Oklahoma Youth Expo. Sadie Collins and Anthony Clark both exhibited wether goats that placed at the top end of their classes and were selected to show again in their division line-up. Tanner Rieger has sixth- and eighth-place crossbred lambs. Jaden See Burlington Page 30

Mary and I moved to Alva in December, 1949. We have enjoyed the growing up of three fine children (even if I say so myself) and we love all the people of the area. “Oh how wonderful it is!” After thinking about it, yes, it would be a different place without a hospital. So I offer you this poem to read and think about.

If you want to work in the kind of a town Like the kind of a town you like, You needn’t slip your clothes in a grip and start on a long, long hike. You’ll only find what you left behind, for there’s nothing that’s really new. It’s a knock at yourself when you knock your town. It isn’t your town - it’s you. Good things are not made by men afraid, Lest someone else gets ahead. When everyone works and nobody shirks, You can raise a town from the dead. And if, while you make your personal stake, Your neighbor makes one too,

While you read this poem, I hope you elect to go vote “Yes” on the hospital issue.

Your home town will be what you want it to be. It isn’t your town - it’s you. - - Author Unknown

Lynn Says

Advantages of living in Alva By Lynn L. Martin The new Alva High School principal, Randy Atkins, spoke at the Alva Kiwanis Club last week and caused the Kiwanians to feel good about their town. Randy told how he and his wife came and toured Alva before even applying for the job. He said they were impressed at how nice the town looked, and when he visited the high school, he was particularly moved by the words of the Goldbug motto imprinted on the side of the building. Later, he attended a couple of away basketball games as the Goldbugs and Ladybugs were striving to make the state tournament. He said he was very impressed at the size of the crowd from Alva as they followed the team. “Unfortunately, the teams lost both of those games,” he said.

He did not want to bad-mouth his previous school in Oklahoma City, but cited a couple of problems that we are lucky to have escaped. Gangs are rampant. Most of the students are on free and reduced lunches (translation: below poverty level). About 25 percent of the parents are in prison. Atkins repeatedly emphasized how fortunate we are to live in Alva with great schools, a college and career tech next door and the opportunity for high school students to accumulate as many as 30 college hours while still in high school. Rec Park Air Conditioning The participation at the Alva Recreation Complex is growing. The different tournaments held throughout the year are now drawing teams from Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma. Courtney said the growth has been a wonderful financial bonus for area restaurants, motels and convenience stores. She has been hoping that financing can be arranged to air-condition the

gymnasium at the Alva Recreation Complex. Courtney said an airconditioned gym would open up another huge area of participation from out of town visitors. She said there are very few communities with air-conditioned gyms. Neither of the Alva High School gyms nor the Northwestern gym is airconditioned. Rodeo Arena Something that has been mentioned many times is the need for a new rodeo arena. As I understand it, the college rodeo team competes against every institution of higher learning, no matter what the size. So one week they might be competing at Kansas State and then the next weekend at Panhandle State. But if you were to create a gift list for Santa Claus, both the air-conditioning project along with a big-league rodeo arena ought to be near the top. Final Topic The revitalization of the menu at Red’s Place on Oklahoma Boulevard is terrific. The quality of the food is climbing off the wall. My favorite is the roast beef sandwich to which I add bar-b-q sauce. They have also added hard ice-cream like you would find at Braum’s.

GET YOUR TICKETS FOR BORDER LINE THEATRE’S “RADIO GALS” OPENING NIGHT OF OCT. 26 — Playing one of the “Hazelnuts” in the crazy musical “Radio Gals,” Cherish Reeves can belt out a tune as fast as her feet can tap dance, as delicately as she can flutter around the stage, with as much fun as she obviously has on stage. Accompanying her is Jeaneane Fortune who has a show-stopping song and dance performance with her sista — one of the Swindle sisters — played by none other than banker and former city councilman Brandon Poland. Watching this duo perform is worth much more than the ticket price. “Radio Gals” opens this Saturday night (Oct. 26) in a dinner theatre setting with a matinee Sunday at 2 p.m. “Radio Gals” runs the following weekend also, Nov. 2 and 3. Contact Shirts and More in Kiowa at 620-825-4074 for your dinner theatre tickets. Matinee tickets are available at the door of Kiowa’s Community Building, home of the Border Line Theatre.

THE MUSIC AND LAUGHS BEGIN SATURDAY NIGHT ON BORDER LINE THEATRE STAGE IN KIOWA — Playing a retired music teacher, Cathy Cox (at right) plays a mean accordion on her radio show WGAL that transmits the antics of her wacky “Hazelnuts” like this one played by Janice Hill. One of the many problems is Hazel’s show transmits on whatever wavelength she happens to turn the dial to that day. This results in a big mess with a pesky inspector (played by BLT veteran Gary Jacobs who always has the crowd going) and laughs as zany as the Hazelnuts’ costumes. The show is “Radio Gals” and opens this Saturday night (Oct. 26) in a dinner theatre setting with a matinee Sunday at 2 p.m. “Radio Gals” runs the following weekend also, Nov. 2 and 3.

Four Corners Quilt Retreat held in Jet The anniversary of the 10th Four Corners Quilt Retreat is history. It was held at the Jet Community Building in Jet, Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 1720. Thirty women gathered from as far away as Austin, Texas; Lincoln, Kan.; and Rogers, Ark.. Women also attended from the Kansas City area; St. Louis, Mo.; Dallas, Texas; Illinois; and several places in Kansas and Oklahoma. Randy Leek of Cherokee coordinates this four days of sewing, eating, fellowshipping and learning techniques of assembling quilt tops. The theme this

year was “Heart to Heart” and almost everyone in attendance brought with them a quilt block they had assembled to be made into a quilt that the Four Corners Quilt Retreat will donate to the Jet Lion’s Club for a money-raising project for their many community service projects. A small quilt shop from Texas was available for the women to purchase quilt fabric and notions to be made into new quilting projects. Delicious meals were served to the attendees, allowing them to sew without interruptions.

Several individuals came in and looked around to view all the activity and quilts being made. Among those in attendance were the mayor of Cherokee and Karen Hawkins and her husband Lon. Family members and friends of some of the attendees dropped in to visit. The 2014 fall quilt retreat is already underway with the dates and the theme set. It will be “A Tisket, a Tasket” and will be held Oct. 16-19, 2014. Anyone interested in the next retreat can contact Randy Leek, 580-596-5648 or Connie LaGrow at 580-596-2949.

Burlington’s ad valorem again increases; Linda Gordon new secretary By Yvonne Miller The Burlington Board of Education met for a special meeting at 8 p.m., Oct. 11. Members present were Terry Graham, Allison Armbruster and Roger Allen. Members Beth Guffy and Aaron Smith were absent. Others present were Superintendent Glen Elliott, Principal Shane Feely, temporary minutes clerk Judy Elliott and minutes clerk Linda

Gordon. Guests present were Kiley Feely, vocal and band teacher, and Travis Bradshaw, agriculture education teacher. Superintendent Elliott said the school district’s ad valorem is up again for 2013-14 at $30,861,493. That amount for 2012-13 was $28.5 million. Elliott noted the huge increase from two years ago at $16,929,558. The 2013/2014 estimate of needs to be sent to the excise board received board approval. That total is General Fund, $2,658,503.88; Building Fund, $262,653.41; Child Nutrition Fund, $70,362.59. The board approved removing Mary Anne Hathaway and appointing Linda Gordon to the following positions: board minutes clerk, encumbrance clerk, activity fund custodian, lunch

fund custodian and receiving agent. Christian Ballard, architect, and Stefanie Niimi, project director with the firm Boynton-Williams, presented drawings of the superintendent’s house, band room and vocational-agriculture addition to the board. Final drawings of the superintendent’s house received board approval. It’s a ranch-style, three-bedroom, twobath home with a two-car garage. Elliott said they can probably let bids on the house Nov. 7 or 8. Elliott said the board tabled approval of the drawings for the band room and vocational–agriculture addition until the next regularly scheduled board meeting, which is Monday, Oct. 21. The board approved the gifted education plan and the new bus driving contract for Kathy Motycka.

his country as aerial gunnery instructor in the United States Army Air Corps during World War II. He worked at the Wichita Daily Times in Wichita Falls, Texas, until 1959, when he accepted the public relations director position at Northwestern Oklahoma State University (NWOSU) in Alva. On April 24, 1976, he was united in marriage to Bettielou Geis at Alva, beautifully blending her children, Bryan, Craig, Kurt and Rachel, into this family. During his career Wayne also taught journalism classes, supervised the publications of the Northwestern News and yearbook, served on the NWOSU Hall of Fame Committee, served as public relations chairman, led the development of the mass communications department, and authored the book “Northwestern: A Centennial History,” the definitive history of NWOSU. Through his hard work and dedication to the university, he obtained the honor of professor emeritus, also serving as chair of the journalism department. He continued teaching part time for 12 years at the Alva and Woodward campuses. He is remembered by the many students and faculty members whose lives were impacted by his quiet, patient spirit. He’s been honored with the John Sheffield Teacher of the Year Award (1987), the Faculty Senate Service Award (1981), honorary membership in Kappa Delta Pi education society (1980), and the Nescatunga Arts and Humanities Council’s service award (1982). He was currently serving as co-chair of the NWOSU Foundation Historical Preservation Taskforce, with long-time friend Johnny Barton. NWOSU Ranger Homecoming was always a significant event for Wayne every year, serving as homecoming chairman and being honored as Parade Marshall (1991). He retired from the NWOSU staff in January, 1988, after 28 ½ years with the institution. Even after retirement, his continued devotion to NWOSU was reflected in his involvement as director of the Northwestern News Bureau. He also served on the executive board of the Oklahoma Retired Educators Association, and as president of the Woods County Retired Educators Association. Wayne was a very active member of the Alva First Baptist Church, where he sang in the choir and the men’s quartet, served as deacon, taught Sunday school

class many years, represented his church at the Baptist General Convention, and served on numerous committees through the years. He was also an active member of the Alva Masonic Lodge #105 and Eastern Star #97, as well as the Scottish Rite and the York Rite bodies of the Masonic Organization by serving in several offices to cooking hamburgers and pancakes for fundraisers and other events where the lodge was involved, culminating in November 2010 by receiving the Masonic Medal of Honor. He served as Alva City Clerk for 24 years, recently retiring and was instrumental in the formation of Red Carpet Country, serving president of the board of directors, and edited the organization’s promotional publication Red Carpet Country News. Besides his parents, Wayne was preceded in death by one sister, Verna Clay Abbott. Wayne is survived by his wife Bettielou of Alva; daughter Stacie Nan Jones and husband Kenneth of Greensburg, Pa.; son Bryan Stephenson of Woodward; son Craig Stephenson of Moore; son Mike Lane and wife, Jill, of Ponca City; son Kurt Stephenson of Oklahoma City; and daughter Rachel Stewart and husband Chad of Alva; sisters Venita Davis of Altus, and Wilma Jo Miner of Tulsa.

There was a plan in the late 1800s to build the KCM&O Railroad (Kansas City, Mexico and Orient) from the eastern seaboard to the Gulf of Mexico where goods from New England could be shipped to the Orient. The KCM&O, later owned by the Santa Fe Railroad, operated for 60 years. It was known as “The Orient.” The line was built through a number of Northwest Oklahoma towns – Cherokee, Yewed, Carmen, Aline, Cleo Springs, Orienta, Fairview, Longdale, Canton, Oakwood – and many more on its way to the Gulf of Mexico. The first train reached Fairview on Aug. 20, 1903. “The Orient” is a beautifully illustrated 344-page book written by former Waynokan Robert E. “Bob” Pounds, now deceased, and John B. McCall. It is loaded with photos, maps and information about the Orient Railroad. In the introduction, McCall gives extensive credit to the research of Bob Pounds: “This volume, in major degree, is the result of one man’s research over more than a decade about things related to The Orient. Robert E. Pounds’ interest in The Orient first awakened when he was a special agent for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway in Waynoka. In the course of his daily business, Robert often found himself traveling up and down what was – by then – an isolated branch line of the Santa Fe. He was taken by the leisurely pace of railroading he found along that remote line, such as

the fact that in an age of radio talk, the Orient’s operators in those quaint little depots yet relied on the morse code and telegraph wire of decades past. He became interested in the personal histories of employees who had come with the Orient to the Santa Fe when the bigger railroad absorbed it on the eve of the Great Depression. His oft-repeated comment, that “if something could go wrong with the Orient, it happened,” was an indication of just how fascinated he had become with that railroad. “Robert Pounds was in a good place to learn more about the Orient; his work not only took him along its lines but his leisure time began to coincide with Santa Fe’s closing of locations where many of the old Orient records had been stored and from which were then being discarded. Given his position with

the railroad, it was a simple matter for him to save much of this material from destruction. Because of his training as an investigative professional in law enforcement, he was able to locate artifacts from the Orient’s history that had made their way into private hands. Many of those Pounds was able to borrow or purchase for his own growing archives about the railroad.” After Pounds’ unexpected illness and death, his family requested that his material be published. The book is the result of the efforts of individuals and organizations who made it happen, and was published by the Santa Fe Railway Historical and Modeling Society. The book is available at the Waynoka Museum Gift Shop at the Harvey House. For further information, call 580-8241886 or 824-5871.

Hospital spring of 2014. She reminded physical therapy doesn’t yet have a designated area at the new hospital and will temporarily set up in a conference room. “We have a wish list of equipment to make it easier for our patients if the money is available,” Lana said. She listed a recumbent bicycle and more, such as a therapy pool, which she said would be beneficial, but expensive – a true wish list item. Smith and Reeves said they’ve seen three to six new patients per week since her arrival. She added they’ve worked with numerous post-op patients. “There seems to be interest and curiosity with me here,” Smith said. “We want to let people know about our scope of practice. People can generally get in fast to see us.”

Oct. 29 cattlemen meeting to cover health and nutrition of stocker calves Stocker cattle producers are invited to attend the Wheat Pasture Stocker Management meeting conducted by the Woods County OSU Cooperative Extension Service on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at Northwest Technology Center, 1801 South 11th Street, Alva. With the positive start to the wheat planting season, many producers are planning to graze stocker calves on wheat pasture. Whether home raised calves or purchased stockers hauled in from some distance, the health and nutritional management of lightweight calves during the receiving period is vital to a successful stocker op-

eration. Dr. D.L. Step, OSU Extension veterinarian, and Dr. Chris Richards, OSU beef specialist, will discuss the latest research and recommendations on receiving stocker calves. Also on the program, Roger Don Gribble, OSU area agronomist, will review the impact of grazing on wheat yield and Greg Highfill, Woods County Extension agriculture educator, will review wheat pasture supplementation options. The program begins at 5:30 p.m. with light supper snacks. All interested cattle producers are welcome.

WWII vet honored with longoverdue military medals By Justin Juozapavicius TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Given the choice, World War II veteran Phillip Coon probably wouldn’t want the formality and fuss of being honored on a military base with men and women standing at attention, dressed in full regalia — even if it was with a fistful of long-overdue medals he waited decades to receive. So it’s fitting that the awards were presented to the humble Tulsa-area man Monday evening in an informal ceremony at the Tulsa International Airport, with family and fellow veterans in attendance and little pomp and circumstance. The 94-year-old survivor of a POW labor camp and the Bataan Death March received the Prisoner of War Medal, Bronze Star and the Combat Infantryman Badge after he and his son, Michael, returned from a trip to Japan to promote understanding and healing with the U.S. A couple of dozen people applauded wildly after the medals were presented to Coon, who was seated in a wheelchair. He lifted his ball cap in recognition, exposing a shock of silver hair. “I’ve been blessed to come this far in life,” he said, a tear streaming down

one cheek. “I thank the Lord for watching over me.” Japan’s Foreign Ministry said Coon visited the site of the former POW camp in Kosaka next to a now defunct copper mine where he was put to forced labor. The veteran also met the mayor and other officials in Kosaka, in Japan’s northern prefecture of Akita. Coon, who lives in Sapulpa in northeastern Oklahoma, served as an infantry machine gunner in the Army. He is also a survivor of the Bataan Death March in the Philippines in 1942, when the Japanese military forced tens of thousands of American and Filipino soldiers to trek for 65 miles with little food or water in blazing heat. As many as 11,000 died along the way. It’s not clear why Coon didn’t get his medals before now, but such occurrences with awards are not uncommon in the military. “It continues to trouble me that there are instances where service members do not receive the service medals they have earned through the course of their careers,” said U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, whose office contacted the military three weeks ago about the missing medals. “But It is extremely rewarding for me and my

staff to be able to help veterans and active-duty members receive the honors they have fought for.” Retired Maj. Gen. Rita Aragon, Oklahoma’s secretary of military and veterans’ affairs, said most veterans were — rightly — more focused on reuniting with their families than chasing after military ribbons when they returned after the war. Aragon presented the medals to Coon during the airport ceremony. Tulsa veteran David Rule, who served in the Vietnam War, helped Coon and his family to find out why his medals hadn’t been issued. For the past 10 years or so, Rule has helped recognize about 150 area veterans by memorializing their names, ranks and branches of service on granite plaques that are presented to them and their families. “I have a passion for these servicemen,” Rule said earlier Monday. “They just sacrificed so much. It doesn’t matter to me whether they were a cook or a four-star general, just for them to get this million-dollar smile on their face when they know they aren’t forgotten.” *** Associated Press reporter Mari Yamaguchi in Tokyo contributed to this report.

Carlton Landing, pop. 56, is newest town in Okla. McALESTER, Okla. (AP) — With a population of 56 people, Carlton Landing in Pittsburg County has become Oklahoma’s newest town. Though the lakefront community is small, town founder Grant Humphreys

expects it to grow quickly. “Currently, at least one new home breaks ground each week in Carlton Landing,” he said. “This growth is in keeping with (our) projections. We continue to grow our construction capacity to handle the strong market response.” Pittsburg County commissioners on Monday approved the incorporation of Carlton Landing after voters approved the proposition during a special election earlier this month. Humphreys told the McAlester News-Capital (http://bit.ly/1cbtmo0 ) that the new community on Lake Eufaula covers 1,650 acres. Officials said the town could eventually receive sales tax revenue now that it’s incorporated. Humphreys said

the incorporation allows the community to continue with plans for its development. “It allows us to move forward with some of our major initiatives such as creating a nature center, a 300-slip marina and camping facilities — all of which enhance recreation opportunities and increase public access to the waterfront,” he said. Humphreys said he expects 50 to 60 homes to be built in Carlton Landing over the next 12 months. “The overall master plan includes more than 3,000 homes at a rate of 80 to 100 homes each year,” he said *** Information from: McAlester News-Capital, http://www.mcalesternews.com

Bedlam blood drive set at Freedom High School To show their community and school spirit, blood donors can give with Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI). Freedom High School is sponsoring a Bedlam blood drive, 1 to 6 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 23, in the high school cafeteria. OBI exclusively provides every drop of blood needed by patients in Share Medical Center. Some 144 other medical facilities across the state also

rely on OBI donors to provide life-saving blood for their patients. “Someone needs blood every two seconds, and since blood can only be used for 42 days, we constantly need people to donate,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and CEO of OBI. “This ongoing need is why we are asking Freedom- area residents to come to this blood drive and give.” The supply of blood must con-

stantly be renewed because there is no substitute for blood. Although all blood types are needed, those with O-negative type blood are especially encouraged to donate. According to AABB, those with O-negative blood type make up only nine percent of the national population. However, O-negative blood can be used in any emergency situation when a patient’s blood type has not yet been identified.

The City of Waynoka recently received a state grant for community enhancements, according to Sen. Bryce Marlatt and Rep. Jeff Hickman. The Oklahoma Department of Commerce Office of Community Development awarded a $83,700 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Revitalization Award for the project. Grant money will be used to remove and replace existing sidewalks and light

poles that are in a state of disrepair. Sen. Marlatt, R-Woodward, said the CDBG Community Revitalization program helps eligible cities, towns and counties with improvements that have been identified in their strategic plan. The strategic plan takes into consideration the goals and needs specific to the community and encourages an increase in the quality of life in the community. Each year the Oklahoma Department of Commerce makes CDBG funds

available to eligible incorporated towns, cities and counties. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), through a competitive grant process that utilizes an established set of threshold and rating criteria all applicants must meet. Rep. Hickman, R-Dacoma, said this project will benefit not only the residents of Waynoka, but thousands of tourists who visit Waynoka while utilizing the nearby Little Sahara State Park.

City of Waynoka awarded $84,000 for community enhancement

Commissioners approve 2014 schedules

By Alex Cole The Alfalfa County commissioners approved two schedules for 2014 during a regular meeting on Monday. The first was a holiday schedule including days the courthouse will be closed. They went

on to approve a schedule of meetings to be held by the commissioners in 2014. Before voting to approve these agenda items, the board signed M & O warrants for payment, blanket purchase orders, road crossing permits and approved the

minutes from the last regular meeting. The commissioners also approved a change order for the dirt work at the site of the new fairgrounds building. They made a transfer of $360,000 from the T-6 commissioners monies to the T-7 commissioners emergency transportation revolving fund for the Greer Road project. Also discussed was an issue with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) flood zone mapping. The updated map shows a portion of the town of Jet in a flood zone that should not be in the zone. Commissioner Doug Murrow told the board he has been working with FEMA to resolve the problem. Other items approved by the board were August and September alternatives to the detention and transportation claims, and an oil and gas lease for Section 3, Township 26, Range 11. A total of 26 road crossing permits were approved at $17,750. District 1 had ten permits at $7,750; District 2 had two permits at $1,500; District 3 had 14 permits at $8,500.

Animal rescuer hopes for new barn after tornado By Kristi Eaton BETHEL ACRES, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma woman who spent years rescuing and aiding injured and neglected animals, including countless four-legged critters during a series of tornadoes in May, is now finding herself in need of a little help. Maeghan Hadley runs 1 Day Ranch, a rescue and rehabilitation program for abused and neglected dogs and horses. Because of her skills with animals, Hadley was called upon twice in May to help with animal rescue and recovering efforts following two days of storms. But Hadley also was a victim. On May 19, her barn, which she had been counting on to use as part of a therapeutic riding program for chil-

dren with autism and other developmental delays, was badly damaged and needs to be replaced. Two days later, when she was helping transport about 30 dogs found following a deadly tornado in Moore, someone crashed into her farm truck, totaling the vehicle. “It’s been a rough couple of months between not having a trailer because I can’t use my truck, not having a truck and now not having a usable barn and still having to run the rescue, things are rough,” said the 26-year-old Hadley, who was photographed by an Associated Press photographer rescuing a kitten in May after one of the storms. “But we are hoping to turn it around.” Hadley has raised about $7,000 through various fundraising for the estimated $30,000 it will take to build a new eight-stall barn on her farm land. Once the barn is complete, she said she’ll be able to adopt out some of the horses and work on creating and opening up to the public the therapeutic riding program. Along with the riding program, Hadley eventually hopes to become certified with her father, a psychologist, to offer equine-assisted psychotherapy. Friend Jenny Patten called Hadley “amazing” and said she has a love for animals and children that is unmatched. “If there is a need, she’s probably the first one there wanting to help,” said Patten, who nominated Hadley for a local TV station’s program to help people in need. Animals have been a part of Hadley’s life since she was a child. She started riding horses at age 5 and got her first one at 13. In high school, she

rescued a kitten that had been set on fire and, unbeknownst to her parents, kept it hidden in her bedroom for a few months and nursed it back to health. Her love for four-legged critters made the death of Stormy, the kitten Hadley is seen rescuing in the AP photo following the May tornado near Bethel Acres, all the more upsetting. Following the rescue, an outpouring of love for the kitten came from all over the world, with some people even asking if the kitten could be shipped abroad. Stormy initially seemed happy and healthy after she was bandaged up by a vet for a cut. But Hadley noticed that the tiny kitten wasn’t growing at all, despite eating plenty. She took her back to the vet, who initially didn’t suspect anything. When Stormy continued to not grow, the vet finally determined that she had a birth defect in her brain that kept her body from getting larger. The kitten was not in pain, the vet told Hadley, but it meant that one day she was simply not going to wake up. On July 13, Stormy went to sleep after eating and playing with Hadley. The next morning she never woke up, just as the vet had predicted would happen. Hadley feels better knowing the kitten had a good life up until her death, she said. “She was a spoiled rotten little kitten,” she added. *** Online: 1DayRanch.com *** Reach Kristi Eaton via Twitter at http://twitter.com/kristieaton.

Opening statements begin in ex-legislator’s trial By Sean Murphy OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A former legislator accused of bribing a Senate colleague with a job offer was motivated not by money, but by a desire for more political power and influence, a prosecutor told jurors Tuesday at the start of the lawmaker’s trial. Rep. Randy Terrill, R-Moore, is charged with offering to set up former state Sen. Debbe Leftwich, D-Oklahoma City, with an $80,000-a-year job at the state medical examiner’s office in exchange for Leftwich’s promise to withdraw as a candidate for re-election in 2010. Prosecutors allege Terrill masterminded the scheme so that a Republican colleague of Terrill’s could seek Leftwich’s seat in south Oklahoma City. “It centered around power, control, influence, manipulation,” Assistant District Attorney Jimmy Harmon told jurors during his opening statement about Terrill’s motive to commit the crime. Terrill, 44, and Leftwich, 62, both face up to two years in prison and a $1,000 fine if convicted of their roles in the alleged scheme. Leftwich’s trial is scheduled to begin later this year. Both have maintained their innocence. Harmon laid out the details of a complicated case that involves bills approved by the Legislature in 2010 that would have created a new position of “transition coordinator” at the medical examiner’s office and funded it with

proceeds from a wire-transfer fee that Terrill helped create. Harmon suggested Terrill wanted Leftwich not to seek reelection so that a Republican colleague, Rep. Mike Christian, could seek the post in a year in which the GOP was heavily favored to extend its power in state government. Christian never sought the Senate seat but ran instead for re-election to his seat in House District 93, much of which was located in Leftwich’s Senate district in south Oklahoma City. Christian was never charged. The bills to set up and fund the new job never became law because they were vetoed by former Democratic Gov. Brad Henry after the investigation into Terrill and Leftwich surfaced. But Terrill’s defense attorney, Chris Eulberg, suggested the prosecution’s case involves “smoke and mirrors” and that Terrill was a hard-working legislator who sought to improve the medical examiner’s office, which had lost its national accreditation in part because of poor conditions at its Oklahoma City headquarters. Eulberg maintained no crime was committed because the job never existed and that even if it had, Terrill didn’t have the authority to offer the job to Leftwich.

Leftwich also would have been constitutionally prohibited from accepting the position, Eulberg argued. “It’s very simple,” Eulberg told the seven-man, five-woman jury. “All you have to do is listen for evidence that Rep. Terrill offered Debbe Leftwich a bribe. And he didn’t, because that didn’t happen.” The prosecution’s first witness was Cherokee Ballard, a former television reporter who worked as the legislative liaison for the medical examiner’s office in 2010 and testified that she and the agency’s chief administrative officer, Tom Jordan, felt pressure from Terrill, who made it known he wanted Leftwich hired for the post. “We felt like we didn’t have a choice,” Ballard said. Several notable Oklahoma politicians are expected to testify in the trial, including Henry, former House Speaker Chris Benge, former Senate President Pro Tem Glenn Coffee and state Sen. Anthony Sykes, the current chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Judge Cindy Truong has said the trial could last up to two weeks. *** Sean Murphy can be reached at www.twitter.com/apseanmurphy
