Parnon plans GSP pipeline from Cherokee to Cushing Could be extended to west By Jim Stout A pipeline from Cherokee to Cushing is being planned with property acquisition underway, according to CEO Paul Adams of Parnon Gathering, Inc. of Tulsa. It will be called the Great Salt Plains Pipeline. “We’re in negotiations for our preferred site,” Adams said Monday, “but we have a couple of other sites that would work.” He declined to say during negotiations if the sites were inside or outside of the Cherokee city limits.

Oklahoma Press Association

The pipeline will carry 18,000 barrels of crude oil per day, Adams said, and plans call for it to be operational by March of 2012. The Cherokee site will handle 75 truckloads a day and will have one 10,000-barrel storage tank and another 50,000-barrel tank. The site will have an office building plus truck turning and parking areas. “We expect to have 20 different drivers to make the deliveries, 1-3 office personnel and 1-3 service personnel to maintain the pipeline section between Cherokee and Enid.” Acquisition of the 109-mile route is underway, Adams said, with the intention of going north of Enid. It’s a little

too early, he said, to predict how it will pass Perry and Stillwater. “We have to see what obstacles we encounter which include towns, [farmsteads,] other facilities, and river crossings which have to be permitted by the [U.S. Army] Corps of Engineers,” Adams said. “We also recognize that some landowners simply don’t want the pipeline on their property under any circumstances so we plan the route to accommodate them.” Regardless of the obstacles, Adams says he expects to have the Cherokee facility site and route determined in about six weeks. “We expect to have a groundbreaking in December,” Adams said. Parnon told the Tulsa World last week he has enough interest from producers in western Oklahoma to add a Great Salt Plains Phase 2 extension toward the Granite Wash [in Roger Mills and eight adjoining counties including four in the Texas Panhandle] and other tight sand plays. He said the second phase could be commissioned by mid-year 2012. The lines will connect with Parnon’s crude oil tanks at Cushing. Parnon Gathering is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parnon Holdings, Inc.

Younger student numbers up in Cherokee ISD By Roger McKenzie It took a while, but the Cherokee School Board finally held their regular monthly meeting on Thursday, Aug. 11. The meeting was originally set for Aug. 8, then the following day when a quorum was not available on Monday. Tuesday’s emergency meeting wasn’t really an emergency, so it was postponed until Thursday so proper notice could be posted. Student numbers are up for the new school year which will likely require the hiring of another first grade teacher as well as a new paraprofessional to help with the third grade. Most of the extra students are in the elementary school. That good news reported by Supt. Cory Ellis at the meeting. Ellis, who has been talking with civic groups in an effort to encourage cooperation and support between the Cherokee schools and the community, said he is pleased with the motivation he sees in the teachers, the large turnout at the open houses at the high school and elementary school, and the support that was demonstrated at the public meeting held in the school auditorium on Aug. 8. “We got good feedback,” he said of the latter meeting, adding that the district has received over $1,000 in support within a seven day period. More good news came in the form of ad valorem taxes. The district has received about $25,000 from that source already, up from just over $2,000 at this time a year ago. If the district gets a new first grade teacher, some moves will have to be made because there is currently no place to put it that does not require some work.

Ellis said he is exploring options, including using the old kindergarten building. An early morning childcare program as a fundraiser for the Elementary School was one of several fund-raisers approved by the board. An agreement with Opportunities, Inc. to operate another year of the Head Start Program was also approved. Encumbrances and other routine items were approved, including a new milk bid from Hiland Dairy. Last year, the district lost money on milk from a different source because the students apparently didn’t like the milk. Supt. Ellis recommended the hiring of the following new personnel: Ted Atchley (speech teacher), Ilene Littlefield (counselor), E.J. Diel (cook), Angie Mathis (elementary secretary), and LaDonna Hoggard (elementary paraprofessional). All were approved, as was the continued employment of certified and non-certified personnel. Also given an okay was the change to exempt status for the head custodian position. Supt. Ellis was named the determining official for the district’s child nutrition program and Ilene Littlefield was named the compliance coordinator for the Title VII program (for the disabled) as well as the Gifted and Talented Coordinator. A list of surplus items was approved. The items will be among those auctioned off publicly on Aug. 27. Three items were discussed before being tabled. The student handbooks for the elementary and high school may require changes. Most will be for the elementary handbook, which omits sev-

eral items including absenteeism, how absences are handled, a tardy policy, advancement, visitors, etc. Other items in it are no longer appropriate. Both handbooks will be worked on during the school year. The use of school facilities by the public before or after school poses liability concerns that need to be addressed. The third discussion item was changes in the Title I program.

Lynn Says

Light aircraft flight to Wisconsin By Lynn L. Martin About the only time I’ve been flying my own aircraft lately is to shoot aerial photos for customers or for newspaper photo story use. Even last week, I skipped flying to a wedding in Ft. Worth, Texas. I’ve flown to DFW area weddings several times before . . . but not recently. There are a couple of reasons: Aviation fuel prices tend to be a couple dollars more per gallon than automobile gasoline prices, while at the same time, airplanes do not get as many miles per gallon as a car. So it is definitely more expensive. The second reason is when one travels to a major metropolitan area, there is no such thing as a loaner “courtesy car.” Instead, the large airport has rent-a-car vendors and they want your business at a cost of about $100 per day. This weekend I made the decision to fly to a wedding in La Crosse, Wisconsin, because I did not want to spend 14 hours each way in an automobile. That would be 28 hours on the road within one weekend. That’s when light aviation becomes practical. In general, one can expect to make a flight in 1/3 the time of driving. And that’s exactly what happened. It was a nice four and one-half hour trip each way saving me a little more than two work-days of time. My aircraft will

travel about 3 hours and 20 minutes on a load of fuel. So on the way up I stopped at Moberly, Missouri, where I met with the fellow who hosts our newspaper web site. Jim and I have talked on the phone for ten years and we exchange almost daily text messages. We had a pleasant lunch and then flew another couple hours on to La Crosse. The wedding came about because the bride had attended college at NWOSU and grew to admire our photography work. So the couple came up with some extra money to pay our fuel costs. La Crosse is located on the Mississippi River. It is a town a little larger than Enid with a population of 51,000. It was nice to step out of the aircraft and be hit by nice comfortable 75-degree daytime temperatures. It was 55 degrees at 8 a.m. on the day we left. The bride said she would be glad to move back to Alva, but the groom said he could not tolerate 100-degree days. In photographing weddings around the nation, I am always surprised at the regional differences. For example, when a wedding reception includes a dance in Oklahoma, it is like pulling teeth to get people out on the dance floor. Sure, little kids have a blast cavorting around. And the female friends of the bride like to dance . . . often with each other. In Kansas, far more people participate in dancing at wedding receptions. I have always attributed the difference to the Hispanic influence in Southwest

Kansas where I mainly work. It is not uncommon for couples to hire Hispanic dance leaders at Kansas weddings. These dance leaders are usually older husband and wife couples who know the intricate ways of forming long chain dances (sometimes called the Grand March) that eventually includes everybody in the room. The big cultural difference I noticed at this Wisconsin wedding was a large percentage of the people got up and participated from the first dance on and continued to do so. The exuberance of the dance party continued on for hours until our time at the reception was expired. The bridal couple loaned us one of their vehicles so transportation was easy and cheap. On the way home, I had tail-winds from the northeast which is very unusual. The GPS initially said Alva was 3 hours and 50 minutes away . . . but that won’t work on 3 hours and 20 minutes of fuel. Later, the tail-winds diminished and the flight time extended into the four-hour plus range. Our lunch stop was in Tarkio, Missouri, a town of about 1900. The beautiful airport had a loaner vehicle. The airport manager said we had a choice of Pizza Hut or Subway for lunch. The only airport that was superior to the Alva Regional Airport was La Crosse’s airport. But it is a large controltower airport that handles daily commercial flights for American Airlines and Delta.

Burlington School prepares for bond election, accredited with no deficiencies Miss Burlington Thursday at 7 p.m.

By Yvonne Miller Burlington’s School is buzzing as the 2011-12 school year begins today, August 17. On Tuesday administration anticipated enrollment to be approximately 150 which is about the same as last year. The Miss Burlington Pageant is Thursday at 7 p.m., in the auditorium. Senior young women Addie Allen and Molley Vap vie for the title to represent their school in the Miss Cinderella Pageant on the NWOSU campus during homecoming September 29-October 1. Burlington’s Board of Education held a special meeting August 8 and their regular monthly meeting Monday night. All board members attended both meetings including: Terry Graham, Beth Guffy, James Maltbie, Roger Allen and Allison Armbruster. Others present were Superintendent Glen Elliott, Asst. Principal Aaron Randall, and Minutes Clerk Jan Hill. Superintendent Elliott discussed the September 13 Transpotation Bond issue to replace the school’s 12-year-old buses. The bond is for $410,000 to purchase four buses, a pickup and a Suburban. At the special meeting the board discussed administration changes with Principal Joe Feely’s retirement. Superintendent Elliott told how he, Assistant Principal Randall and teacher Stephanie Marteney will split up duties. Coach Randy Turney is now Athletic Director.

Elliott also updated the board on renovations to the little gym. Workers are redoing cabinets in the kitchen, installing new appliances and painting. Electricians are looking at improved lighting. The superintendent reported state aid allocation is about $360,000, down from expected, as reported earlier in the Newsgram. At the regular meeting the board reviewed the Accreditation Report which gave Burlington Accreditation with no deficiencies for 2011-2012 school year. Burlington had no sites on the School Improvement List for 2010-2011. School employee contracts were signed. Board approved continued participation in the Alternative Education Coop with Alva. Encumbrances, change order, payroll accrual, and warrants for the General, Building, Child Nutrition, and Bond funds were approved. The July Activity Fund Report was approved. The Procurement Policy was reviewed and reaffirmed. Marteney was approved as compliance coordinator. Because of waiting for approval of the 2011 expenditure and revenue report by the State Department, review of this report was not discussed. Mr. Elliott’s Superintendent’s report included the upcoming OSSBA/CCOSA conference on Aug. 26-28 in Oklahoma City; the OSIG quarterly newsletter, the intercom; bus routes; and other items already mentioned in this article. At the special meeting milk bids from Hiland Dairy and Mid-American

Wholesale were considered,. The bid was awarded to Hiland Dairy for the 20112012 school year. The board approved employment of Kathy Motycka as paraprofessional for the 2011-2012 school year. They adopted a school-hours policy in case of missing days for bad weather. Board accepted the resignation of Neal Gordon as bus driver. They also approved a list of records from 2002-2006 be destroyed by shredding, incinerating or burying.

City of Kiowa budget approved, many subjects discussed By Yvonne Miller Kiowa’s City Council had a near two-page agenda to cover Monday night from approving the 2012 budget to more discussion on who has jurisdiction over the police department. Mayor Brandon Farney was present with council members: Mark Lambert, Brandon Poland, Rus Molz, Brian Hill and Bill Watson. Also seated at the table was City Administrator Nathan Law, City Attorney Laurel McClellan and City Clerk Marlo Rugg. – The meeting opened with a Tax Budget Hearing for the 2012 Budget. With no public comment, the board later approved the $190,324 budget. Law commented that the approved budget has no big changes. – Next was a public hearing regarding construction of a large steel frame structure for Greg Thurman. The building will be put just south of the old John Deere building of which Thurman is an owner. Law said Thurman has worked with Barber County to gain possession of Lot 3, allowing additional space to place the structure. Thurman also worked with the local fire department to allow them additional storage for vehicles. Law said one side of the structure is for fencing. Also part of the current fire department parking lot has a possible future for a secondary heli-pad.

Law said Thurman requested a building permit just days before council ‘s building moratorium went into effect. With the understanding there is a drainage culvert underneath where the building will sit, council approved the Thurman building. Business owner Steve Walz sat in the crowd at the council meeting and said, “I was not aware of a building moratorium.” With a sarcastic tone, Walz added, “Sounds good for business doesn’t it?” There is a new issue with the Ashbaker garage demolition at 618 S. 8th. The Ashbakers apparently took down the structure deemed unsafe by council a few days before it was to be demolished. Now the garage materials are stacked on a trailer in Ashbaker’s yard that is filled with debris. At a recent meeting before the demolition date, the city contracted with Jessy Ferrell Construction to take down the garage. Now Ferrell wants paid for the job he was contracted to do. Law reminded council this situation has cost the city considerable legal fees and more. Council agreed to discuss the situation in executive session at the end of the meeting. Council took no action on this issue upon return to open session. Another discussion ensued regarding the police department and whether it’s the mayor or city administrator who oversees law enforcement. McClellan said the mayor has control over the police department by control over the city administrator. Lambert said that’s not the way it was when he got on council. Mayor Farney said he’s still not clear and “wants to get through the fog.” McClellan advised reading the section of the city code that discusses duties of administrator, council, etc. David Yearout who helped Kiowa’s Planning Commission write the zoning and subdivision regulations attended the council meeting to answer questions. As reported in the Newsgram from the Planning Commission’s July meeting, commission members voted unanimously to recommend the revised zoning regs to council. Councilman Molz said after receiving the revised documents last Thursday he needs more time to study them before voting. Other councilmen agreed and voted to table a decision. Law reported the city received a $27,172.21 check for the city’s mineral lease from SandRidge Energy. The city has a piece of property east of town for which they paid $19,000. Council put that property out for bid. After much discussion about whether or not to open bids, reject all or what to do, they decided. Hill, Molz and Watson voted not to open the bids and reopen for bids with the right to reject. Lambert and Poland voted no so the measure passed 3-2. Rick Boyd, a permit agent representing Dawson Geological Company, addressed council. He requested that Dawson be able to lay their seismic cable around Kiowa. Boyd was hired by Chesapeake Energy to test for the purpose of mapping oil and gas. Following executive session, council directed the city administrator to draw up an agreement with Dawson.

From Page 15 New Voter ID Law affects next election Obits On July 1, 2011, the “voter ID” law, enacted in 2010 by the overwhelming passage of State Question 746, went into effect. The law requires all voters to produce a government-issued form of identification to prove their identity before they are allowed to vote. A document used for proof of identity must include your name, which must match your name on your voter registration record, a photograph of you, and an expiration date that is later than election day. “Your name on your proof of identity must match your name in the Precinct Registry,” Kelly Stein, Alfalfa County Election Board Secretary said. Voters whose full legal name is on both their proof of identity and on their voter registration record should have no problem at the polls. However, voters whose names have changed due to marriage or divorce and voters who may have registered to vote under a nickname or a variation of their full legal name may encounter difficulties. “Voters who don’t have proof of identity, or whose name on the voter registration record does not match the name on their proof of identity, will have to

vote by provisional ballot.” Stein said. Stein said, “I want to encourage all registered voters in Alfalfa County to verify that they have registered to vote using the same name that appears on their driver license or other primary form of identification.” In order to verify voter registration information, voters may contact the Alfalfa County Election Board at 580596-2718, or they may visit the State Election Board Polling Place Locator website (http://www.ok.gov/elections/ ppl/index.php) and enter the information requested. The voter’s name will display as it appears in the voter registration database. A voter who wants to change his or her name on their voter registration record must fill out and mail a new Oklahoma Voter Registration Application form. The form is available online at www.elections.ok.gov, at all tag agencies, and at most libraries and post offices in Oklahoma.

Kiowa

Kiowa for Select Energy. The city has two bulk water locations inside of the city and a third well north of the city by the Medicine River. This is NOT the city’s drinking water supply from the wells near Sharon. Council approved selling Shell the bulk water for 50 cents per barrel. Council works to make improvements to the city sewer lagoons and well house and chlorine room at the drinking water wells near Sharon. This is so the city doesn’t violate KDHE or EPA regulations. Council plans to form a committee of community organizations to consider the feasibility of combining the city and school museums. This is due to funding

cuts that removed funding for a local citizen to run the museum. Both buildings have their share of structure problems. A proposal from E.V. Cathodic of $38,564 was accepted for a street paving contract. Heath McMurray Farm and Trucking won a bid for gravel hauling at $17/ ton. Ordinance No. 376, “Standard Traffic Ordinance” and Ordinance No. 377, “Uniform Public Offense Code” were approved by council. When Bill Bogner asked about the many electrical outages in Kiowa that “fry computers” and other appliances, Law said there are many reasons out of the city’s control. He said AEC recommends customers have home surge protectors. Lambert questioned problems with the materials that are cracking and separating at the swimming pool that was recently redone.

Hunter Safety course is Saturday A Hunter Safety course is scheduled this Saturday at Northwest Technology Center in Alva. For information call Terry Swallow at (580) 430-5158.

Low pond levels offer opportunity The drought has made farm ponds low or completely dry, but Game Warden Terry Swallow says that offers an opportunity to create fish habitats for when the rains return to normal. “There are a few things you could do to make your pond better during this dry time,” Swallow suggested. “This would be an excellent time to put fish habitat in your pond. By putting brush such as cedar trees, or putting in tires or rocks, you can create a fish habitat. “It will rain one of these days and your farm pond will be ready to be restocked or will have a place for the fish to recover.”

Freedom Rodeo to salute Hepner as Old Cowhand By Jim Stout A loyal, hardworking volunteer for the Freedom Rodeo since 1954, the 2011 Honored Old Cowhand is Harold Dean Hepner. He will be honored each night of the 74th Annual Freedom Rodeo and Old Cowhand Reunion which starts at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week. Growing up, he never missed a rodeo and he’s following in the footsteps of his dad, Paul Hepner, who was a volunteer for the rodeo. Paul was honored as the Old Cowhand as was Harold’s father-inlaw, M.A. Gibson. Although his farming and ranching operation has expanded greatly, Hepner still grows wheat and cattle on the place where he was born about seven miles northwest of Freedom. Hepner graduated from Freedom High school where he and Jeanne Gibson went to school together, They were in the cast of the Christmas Cantata together striking up a special friendship.

They were married in 1951, celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary last May. They live in a beautiful, modern home at the north edge of Freedom and Jeanne operates the Sage and Saddle Bed and Breakfast a half-mile north and east of their home. Of course, 1951 was the same year he was awarded the FFA’s American Farmer Degree and the same year he received his draft notice and the couple spent the majority of his two-year tour of duty in Japan while the Korean War raged nearby. They returned to find Freedom in the throes of a drought and decided to try their luck in South Dakota. But, it didn’t take much of South Dakota’s bitter winter cold to bring them back home to Freedom in 1954. His years in the service were the only time Harold missed the Freedom Rodeo. Harold started out running the roping chute in 1954, but in the 57 years he’s done about every job and done them well in the tradition that makes the Freedom Rodeo one of the best in the nation. This year’s festivities will begin with a Rodeo Queen contest at 6 p.m. ThursSee Hepner Page 34

Why would this couple hire us to come to Wisconsin to photograph their wedding? Jennifer Peterson attended NWOSU and fell in love with our stylish work. We fell for her incredible face and she ended up doing modeling work for Daisy Village and Brown Shoe Fit. The bottom line is lots of people decide to become wedding photographers by buying a nice camera. Very few ever progress beyond getting the same cliche’ photos that have been taken for generations. We brighten up wedding coverage with image and style. That’s what Lynn Martin Photography does best.

Clarification

In last week’s Newsgram, a story stated that Cherokee ISD had withdrawn from the Education Cooperative with Alva and Burlington schools for 20112012. Since Cherokee is a member of more than one cooperative, the story should have explained that the cooperative Cherokee withdrew from was for alternative education. The Alternative Education Cooperative is a joint effort to continue education for students who are not attending school due to disciplinary or other reasons. The Cherokee School District is a long-time member, and continues to be a member of the Cooperative Education Project. The project, which is also commonly called the Education Co-op, is located in Alva and serves several school districts by providing pre-school handicapped services.
