Playground group mobilizes to raise grant matching funds Need $9,000 to get $15,000 grant

A $15,000 grant for playground equipment was offered Friday to an Alva group. A matching grant of $9,000 will be required and Alva Friends of Play is wasting no time getting organized to begin fundraising. A phone-a-thon will begin 5 p.m. Friday. Here’s a statement from Christine Vickers who is president of Alva Friends of Play: The Alva Friends of Play Foundation received a call Friday afternoon (July 1st, 2011) informing us that the organization had been awarded a $15,000 Let’s The Alva Review-Courier / Newsgram is published Wednesday by Martin Broadcasting Corp. 620 Choctaw St. Alva, Oklahoma 73717 Lynn L.

Play Construction Grant from the Dr. Pepper/Snapple Group and Kaboom. The Dr. Pepper/Snapple Group’s, “Let’s Play” initiative is a three-year commitment to KaBOOM!, a national non-profit that’s saving play by ensuring there is a great place to play within walking distance of every child. Over the next two years they plan on giving out 2,000 Let’s Play Construction grants. We applied figuring somewhere down the line we may have a chance at being awarded one, so we were pleasantly surprised to hear the news that we are in the very first group of grantees. The $15,000 construction grant comes with some stipulations. While the grant is for $15,000, our minimum purchase of new playground equipment must be $24,000. Which means that we have to raise at least $9,000 in matching funds. The $9,000 can be raised through fundraisers and donations, and must be raised before they will release the grant funds. We will be doing more fundraisers and are working on trying to find private donors to help us raise the $9,000 as quickly as possible. In a partnership with First Christian Church, Hopeton Church and Alva Wesleyan we will have a Phone-A-Thon Fundraiser on Friday July 8th from 5-9

p.m. at the Woods County Fairgrounds. We are also asking anyone in the community who is available that evening to come down and participate in this fundraiser. The concept of a Phone-A-Thon is for volunteers to come out with their cell phones and a calling list of friends and family. We will spend the evening making calls and asking for donations. Zion Lutheran Church has elected to participate in this fundraiser by sending a flyer to all church members in their newsletter, and First United Methodist Church has put flyers in their bulletins and have them available in the church office. The flyers have a donation card on them for people to fill out and mail a donation for the park. Alva Friends of Play Foundation is an official Non-Profit Foundation now so all donations will be tax deductible and we will send a letter out at the end of the year thanking the donors and providing a receipt for their donation. If anyone in the community would like to make a donation to the park or volunteer to help with a fundraiser, they can contact us at hatfieldpark@yahoo. com or on our Facebook page for more information. Here is more information about Let’s Play, Kaboom, and the Construction Grant. http://www.letsplay.com/ or http:// kaboom.org/

Cherokee BOE buys Personnel issues, activity bus, ag pickup road crossings top Alfalfa meet By Jim Stout Cherokee’s school board bought a new Cherokee Chiefs activity bus in time to be delivered for the opening of school …and the football season. Its graphics are promised to be so impressive, the company representative Dusty Vickery obtained permission from the board of education to exhibit the vehicle in a school transportation trade show just prior to delivery. The purchase was among items on the end of the fiscal year BOE meeting Thursday. Present were board Chair Cheryl Washburn, Ken Kirty, Amber Wilhite, T.J. Allison and Daylon Carruthers along with Superintendent Cory Ellis and Clerk Judy Porter. The board awarded the activity bus bid to Midwest Bus Sales in El Reno. Midwest’s winning bid was $144,602 for a Thomas rear-engine unit in stock at El Reno. Roth of Oklahoma City had bid $143,755 for an activity bus but their bid was a special order and its 120-day delivery meant the unit would not be available until halfway through football season. Midwest also had the winning bid on a 29 passenger bus. The board chose the diesel option at $58,374 for a Thomas unit in stock. Roth bid $52,948 for a Chevy Duramax Diesel 29-passenger unit. Croft Country of Cherokee won the bid at $40,794 for a new four-door crew cab ag pickup. The specifications were for a white unit and the only other bid

for $1,100 less was for a red unit. The board declined bids for a Suburban when one bid was for a 2012 unit and the other for a 2011. Superintendent Ellis will rebid the units. Electrical work bids For electrical work at the elementary school, the board chose a bid of $14,584 from Sunderland Electric of Byron. Sooner Electric of Helena bid $17,853. The board rejected bids for school furniture. In other action the board: • approved encumbrances for the general fund of $31,496.03, building fund of $2,307.58, and roof replacement of $301,096.45. • accepted the resignation of Mrs. Jaci Heaton, school counselor, who has accepted a position in Alva Middle School. • voted to hire Debbie Goodwin as elementary special education teacher. • approved building and fleet insurance with the Oklahoma School Insurance Group at $34,201. • renewed Workman’s Comp at $10,169. • approved the annual certificate and municipal order to the County Clerk and County Treasurer. • heard a report on the possible restructuring of the salary for support employees hired in the future. • met in executive session to discuss the contracts of the high school principal and encumbrance clerk, but tabled action when they returned to open session.

Alfalfa County Commissioners held a meeting July 5, and in executive session the matter of courthouse maintenance personnel was discussed. After re-entering the regular session, none of the commissioners would comment on any decision that they made only saying “Everyone is still employed at this time.” Among other topics discussed at the meeting, the following were approved: • Maintenance and Operation warrants for payment • Miscellaneous Officers’ reports • Data collection contract with TY Pickett for Assessor • Juvenile detention contract with Cleveland County • 1 road crossing permit for Sand Ridge in Dist. #3 • 2 road crossing permits for Select Energy Service (1 in Dist. #1 and 1 in Dist. #3) • 1 road crossing permit in Dist. #3 for Crescent Services • Resolution to establish unemployment payments percentage between courthouse and Highway Department

Lynn Says

Life in the big city By Lynn L. Martin I actually took a day off Monday. Upon the invitation of daughter, Marisa, her husband, Darrel, and seven grandchildren, we accepted an offer to spend part of a day on Skiatook Lake near Tulsa, then see the exterior of the house they are purchasing in Owasso, Okla. The family is moving to Owasso. They are skeptical of the financial future of Ponca City with the sale of Conoco to Phillips, and with Phillips moving the Ponca City management jobs to either Bartlesville or Houston. Neither of them works for Phillips, but they are noticing the impact to their own jobs. So Marisa has hired on as a high

school English teacher at Owasso High School. They smiled when they saw she had speech and debate certifications. Anyway, I was intrigued at the neighborhood housing restrictions Marisa and Darrell discovered while house-hunting in Owasso. They have struck a deal on a very beautiful home and are waiting for the seller to move out. Then they’ll make their move from Ponca City. The neighborhoods we are talking about have these fancy multi-gable, multi-garage brick homes with gorgeous lawns and often a swimming pool. But some of the neighborhood rules would make a red-neck cringe. In one area, no backyard privacy fences are allowed because it ruins the view from the adjoining golf course. Another neighborhood association had rules that you may not own more cars than you have garage space for, and the vehicles must be stored within the

garage at night. A more universal rule seemed to be you may not erect metal backyard storage buildings in your back yard. In other words, appearance is everything. I bet they wouldn’t allow junkertype vehicles up on cinder blocks in the yard, either. Or even dandelions. Marisa did show me a subdivision in Owasso where everybody had aircraft hangars in their back yards. Since Marione and I flew to Skiatook in our little Cessna, that was quite appealing. Indeed, the runway is about three miles from their home and could be much handier for quick visits. The boating was fun, particularly as Darrell had a powerful 24 ft. boat that could easily tow three grandkids at once on a huge inner tube-like device. I did not leave my camera at home . . . so I entertained myself shooting both still pics and Hi-DEF video of this fun.

Medicine Lodge Hospital remodeling project is a go

Hospital Administrator Anticipates October Construction

By Yvonne Miller Wed, June 29 was a historic day for Medicine Lodge Memorial Hospital. The Barber County Commissioner and Public Building Committee both approved resolutions that propel financing their hospital remodeling project. Commissioners Paul Harbaugh, Steve Garten and Mike Thomas met with members of the PBC including: Walter Fry, Jim Colborn, Carol Wolgamott, Chantae Simpson, Ann Bell and Tom Bedwell. New member Rod McDaniel also attended. He replaced Montie Baty who decided to step down from the PBC. Also taking part in the meeting was Gordon Stull, who represents the county; attorney Kevin Cowan with Gilmore and Bell of Wichita; and county auditor Ron Bouska. County Clerk Debbie Wesley is always at the commissioners’ table. Dustin Avey of Piper-Jaffray was on speakerphone and updated the group regarding bonds for the project. Avey reported that he moved on the bonds Monday. He secured a bond rate of 3.63 percent which he described as”very, very good.” Avey said they’ll close on the bonds July 20. The bonds are through Security Bank of Kansas City. Avey said local banks from Kiowa and Medicine Lodge also bid. The maturity schedule for the bonds is 2021, “the date we’re shooting for,” Avey said. Bond Rating and Increased Valuation However, Avey said Barber County received an A- Bond Rating. He said after discussion with a rating analyst the county’s grade was just below the higher mark because of the recent trend reducing the unencumbered cash balance in the general fund. When later asked about this trend by the Newsgram, Wesley said the general fund routinely subsidizes the county’s home health services that has already lost about $80,000 this year. She said the commissioners recently voted to close home health services effective September 30. Wesley later confirmed to the Newsgram that the county has $1.6 million in the capital improvement fund. She also confirmed that the county’s estimated valuation is up near $33 million this year at $135,640,557. The increase is primarily from oil and gas revenues, she said. Resolutions Passed for Medicine Lodge Hospital The commissioners passed Resolution 2011-06: A resolution authorizing Barber, County, Kansas to enter into a lease with the Barber County, Kansas Public Building Commission, whereby the county will lease from the PBC certain health care facilities, and enter into a sublease with the Medicine Lodge Memorial Hospital District; whereby the county will sublease such facilities to MLMHD approving the form of said lease and sublease; and authorizing the execution thereof and certain related documents. The PBC passed Resolution 2011-2: A RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF BARBER COUNTY, KANSAS PUBLIC BUILDING COMMISSION REVENUE BONDS, SERIES 2011, IN THE AGGREGATE PRINCIPAL AMOUNT OF $6,000,000 FOR THE PURPOSE OF PAYING THE COSTS OF

CONSTRUCTING, FURNISHING AND EQUIPPING A HOSPITAL FACILITY IMPROVEMENT IN BARBER COUNTY, KANSAS; AUTHORIZING THE EXECUTION AND DELIVERY OF A BASE LEASE BETWEEN THE PUBLIC BUILDING COMMISSION AND THE MEDICINE LODGE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL DISTRICT, AND A LEASE BETWEEN THE PUBLIC BUILDING COMMISSION AND BARBER COUNTY, KANSAS; AND MAKING CERTAIN COVENANTS AND AGREEMENTS WITH RESPECT THERETO. Medicine Lodge Hospital Financing The Revenue Bonds pay for $6 million of the $8.5 to $9 million project. Cowan explained paying the remaining $2.8 balance is “a pledge” by the hospital district. The hospital will pay approximately five percent of the cost from their Medicare reimbursement, and other revenues. The hospital mortgaged over 2000 acres of ranchland they own in south central Barber County. The hospital also has a line of credit from a bank. Hospital Administrator Comments When contacted by the Newsgram, MLMH Administrator Kevin White said he and the board began looking for a solution to fixing their dilapidated hospital in 2007. “It feels really good that See Hospital Page 22 we’re doing something instead

In addition to the numerous volunteer and charitable organizations through the years, Cathy was also employed by Drennans’ Pharmacy and was an avid Avon sales representative. What will be remembered most is Cathy’s willingness to give tirelessly of herself to anyone in need - whether transporting patients to clinics and doctor appointments; assisting low-income families with necessities; or spending time with the disabled and elderly. Simply opening her home and heart to those requiring help was her greatest joy. She was a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Volunteer Community Pharmacy and GO-CARE, as well as being associated with MADD and many other civic and church functions. Cathy truly lived to love others, and the lessons we learned from her examples will greatly outlast her short time on this earth.

Cathy is survived by her loving husband, Rick, who steadfastly provided care and support throughout the duration of her illness; daughter, Erin Sego and husband Andrew of Memphis, Tennessee; son, John Cannon of West Monroe, Louisiana; brother, Monte Stewart and wife Shelly of Amorita, three special nephews, Logan, Tyson and Austin and countless other friends and “adopted in” members of the Cannon family.

of just talking,” White said. The hospital’s architect is Health Facilities Group (HFG) of Wichita and their builder Hutton Construction. White said those groups are near 70 percent complete with the design level. They are about close enough to get a guaranteed maximum price for the project, White said. He anticipates everything will be ready to go by the end of July. He expects construction to start in October. White said the project will be completed in three phases. “It will quite an undertaking,” he said. The project includes an L-shaped approximately 17,000 square foot addition to the west and north of the existing hospital. It also includes some remodeling inside the existing structure, also estimated at 17,000 square feet.

EXTREME HEAT DANGER Kids in Cars

Traveling

Last year 38 children died being left in vehicles. Tip: always put something you gotta have (like your billfold, purse or house keys) with the kid.

In this part of Oklahoma and Kansas, we have long stretches of road without people. Carry plenty of bottled-water with you.

Observe the Burn Ban

We are ripe for heartbreaking fires.

We’ve got to get out of the “It won’t happen to me” mind set. Obey the law and protect every one.

Be watchful. Spot something looking dangerous? Call 911. Fast response always helps the fire-fighters.

Hardtner’s fireworks dazzle – big parade By Yvonne Miller Blessed with rain on the weekend, the tiny town of Hardtner, Kan., drew a huge crowd for their 4th of July fireworks Monday since some area shows were

canceled due to the drought. Main Street, side streets and Achenbach Park were jammed with vehicles. Yards were filled with people and spectators lined around the old Achenbach Hospital lawn to watch two years worth of fireworks as last year’s show was canceled due to rain. The extravaganza was worth the wait. The sky exploded with color as huge bombs burst in the air orchestrated to patriotic and popular music played. The sound was deafening at times with multiple explosions that brought every color of swirls, circles, zips and zags. Machine gun-style fireworks sprayed See Hardtner Page 32

Cool front brings wind, dust, cool air to Dacoma Lighting bolt competes with fireworks

By Leisa Beavers and Jim Stout The weather competed with the fireworks show in Dacoma Sunday evening, opening the show with a blast and finishing it with a bolt of lightning that set off an oil field fire just east of town. A squall line brought the brief blast of wind, dust, gustnados and light showers about 15 minutes after Dacoma’s Third of July celebration had begun, but when it passed, it had dropped the temperature from a blistering 107 degrees to a perfect 75. Dacoma Fire Department really put together a fun little 3rd of July celebration. There were plenty of things to do for kids of all ages. The wives of the firemen were dishing out the food and working in the booths set up for the raffle and games. “The crowd was a lot bigger than expected due to surrounding towns canceling their displays, but there was enough food and fun for everyone. We don’t have an exact count of how much money we raised from the event but it’s safe to say we did very well,” Dacoma Fire Chief Mark Denton happily stated. At dusk, Pastor John Bizzel from Dacoma Methodist Church, said a

prayer blessing the event. The colors were presented by Alva Boy Scouts, Ben Smith and Isaac Thompson of Troop #392. Then Candice Leeper sang the National Anthem. Soon after that the fireworks com-

menced. The firemen put on a beautiful display of colorful explosions. Capron Fire Department, Carmen FD, and Waynoka FD were all on scene See Dacoma Page 34

from the ground as the aerials burst overhead – just when you thought one burst was finished it would surprise you with more excitement. Sam Sterling announced the show. He told how the parade theme, “A Day Without (you fill in the blank) Is Like a Day Without Sunshine” brought so many words such as God, friends, family, Chieftain Pride and much more in parade entries. Organizer Syd Sterling said the top four parade entry winners will share a $1000 prize. They are the Peace Treaty, Barber County Rodeo, Stateline 4-H Club and the Cedar Grove Church. Shannon (McNett) Edwards won the Medallion Hunt. On this Independence Day, Sterling said “freedom” is the word that perfectly fills in the blank of the parade theme. Fireworks spectators couldn’t help but feel pride in being an American and thankful for having precious freedom that U.S. Veterans fought for and current soldiers fight daily to preserve.

Reminiscent of the days when this part of the country formed, there was lots of partyin’ and dancin’ in saloons. These folks portray that period and have barrels of fun as they promote the upcoming Medicine Lodge Peace Treaty Pageant in Hardtner’s 4th of July Parade. Portraying the sheriff is Charlie Swayze. Kim Doman sits on the saloon bar. Dancing alongside the float are: (l-r) Dacy Doman, Lacy Phillips and Kathy Lynch. Others paraders with the Peace Treaty (not pictured) who were busy handing out promotional material about the event were: Cathy Colborn, Paula Doman, Allen Doman and Joe Leibham. The Pageant is September 23-25 in a natural amphitheater on the east edge of Medicine Lodge. It unfolds the days of cowboys and Indians and culminates with the signing of the Peace Treaty, the Great Peace Council of 1867 between the U.S. Government and the proud civilization of the Plains Indians.

and standing by in case a fire might be started from the fireworks show. Right in the middle of the display, there was a loud clap of thunder. “The lightning associated with the thunder struck an oil well that was located a little ways east of the festivities and started a blaze that required the firefighters attention,” said Chris Morris. Capron FD personnel saw the well burst into flames and notified DFD. The fireworks show continued but several firemen left immediately for the oil well. When they arrived at the oil well, they discovered that the battery was struck by the lightning and was on fire. “A special formula called AFFF Foam, is required to put out battery fires on oil rigs,” Morris said. Alva Fire Department was dispatched to bring the alcohol resistant foam to help extinguish the flames. With all the firefighters on hand the fire was easily contained.
