New Cherokee policeman faces felony rape charges Terminated following OSBI investigation

By Jim Stout Felony rape and firearm charges were filed Feb. 24 in Alfalfa County District Court against a newly-hired Cherokee police officer, David Otis Cole. Misdemeanor charges also filed were soliciting prostitution and refusing to perform duties. Cole, 46, was hired on Thursday, Feb. 17, and the alleged series of incidents occurred on Saturday, Feb. 19, culminating in Cole’s apartment at 300 West Cherokee Street. Cole admitted sexual activity with the woman, but claimed it was consensual.

Oklahoma Press Association

Cole made an audio recording of the sexual encounter and made it available as evidence. After an OSBI investigation, City Manager Don Bowman terminated Cole on Tuesday, Feb. 22. The charges stem from allegations by a 19-year-old woman who is awaiting trial herself on felony charges of marijuana possession and harboring a fugitive. She also has been charged with misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and DUI while underage. The woman has a pending petition filed in Alfalfa County Court regarding her two minor children ages 3 and 1. Special Agent Shane Vore of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation investigated the incident. Vore prepared charges of felony counts of first degree rape, first degree rape by instrumentation, possession of a firearm

during the commission of a crime and misdemeanor charges of soliciting for prostitution and public officer’s willful omission to perform duties. The latter charge was based on a call from Alfalfa County Dispatch which came during the encounter. Cole refused a call to investigate an erratic driver despite being the officer “on call.” Vore’s affidavit characterized sexual activity audible on the recording as sadomasochistic. “Instruments” used in the encounter included a shampoo bottle, a dark-colored hairbrush, a black belt, his hand, his finger and a “sharp instrument” which left puncture marks on her buttocks. Statements by the woman indicate he lured her to his apartment with promises to take her to Wal-Mart and buy her things for her children and one or two phone cards, documents state.

Thornburgh retires as Election Board secretary for Alfalfa County By Roger McKenzie Joyce Thornburgh has retired for all the right reasons. Her last day as Board Secretary for the Alfalfa County Election board was Monday. Taking her place Tuesday is

Kelly Stein, who has been involved with Alfalfa County elections previously and has been in intensive training with Thornburgh for over a month. Thornburgh has served the county in the Election Board office for 18 and a half years.

she and her husband will now be able to mark off, including hiking down the Grand Canyon. For a full list of just why Thornburgh decided now is the time to retire and her words of praise and gratitude, see the Alva Review-Courier’s video interview of Thornburgh at www. alvareviewcourier.com..

Two Alfalfa County teams living the dream at state tournament

It’s official. The Burlington boys are headed to the state basketball tournament, one of eight Class B teams out of 92 statewide. They join the Timberlake girls in making the trip this year, giving Alfalfa County two representatives at the Class B tournament. Elks top Hammon to earn state trip The Elks had a tough road to make the tournament after they lost to Hammon in the Regional Tournament. But they

battled back in the loser’s bracket at the Area Tournament in Woodward. Playing some of their best basketball all season, the Elks beat a tough Arnett team 75-66 in a game that was much closer than the score would indicate. Then they topped Gage handily by a 77-55 margin. That put them in a rematch with Hammon, with the winner going to state. “We felt like we didn’t play well in the first game with Hammon,” said Burlington Coach Randy Turney. The second time around, the Elks were playing well and up by 10 points when their scoring leader junior Garrett Butler got into foul trouble and had to sit down with five minutes to go in the third quarter. The team went into a slowdown mode with Garrett gone and Hammon gradually cut their deficit. The game ended up tied in regulation, but in overtime the Elks took care of business and put the game away with 15 points in the overtime to take a 65-61 win. Leading the Elks, as they have all season, were Butler with 32 points, and senior Jaron Flackman, a fouryear starter, with 20 points. But Coach Turney knows his team wouldn’t be

headed to the state tournament without his other players, who have been playing their best basketball at just the right time. For instance, Keith Ellerback, a junior, has stepped up his rebounding. He’s been averaging about 12 rebounds a game in the play-offs. Stetson Vore, a junior who transferred in from Alva, had 10 big points in the Arnett game. This is the first time the Elks have been to the state tournament since then Coach Joe Feeley took them to the state semi-finals in 2005. This won’t be Coach Turney’s first trip to state either. He took the Elks four times in his first coaching stint at Burlington from 198292, so he knows how special and hard to achieve a trip to the state tournament is. “You have to be really good and really lucky,” he said. “This is something these boys will remember for the rest of their lives.” As good as the sixth-ranked Elks are playing, they defiintely have a chance. But Turney admitted the task will be tough because the Elks will face second-ranked Red Oak in their opening game on Thursday at Southern Nazarene. That game is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Red Oak is led by a 6’5” guard who is a likely Division I prospect. “He’s an awfully good player,” Turney said, but he likes Burlington’s See State Page 18

chances if they continue to play as well has they have been. “I’m very proud of them,” he said of his team. “They are not only good basketball players, they are good students.” The latter remark was a reference to the news that the Elks will be receiving the Academic State Championship for Class B for the second consecutive year. Lady Tigers roaring The Timberlake girls clinched their trip to the state Class B tournament early by going undefeated through the regional and area tournaments. Now that they’ve reached state, the reality is that one loss will end their fairy tale journey. A trip to state is something that the Lady Tigers and Coach Kale Pierce have pointed to all year long. “We aimed high this year,” said Coach Pierce. “We thoguh we had the ability to do it, but the girls had to be convinced that they were the group to do it.” Unlike I wrote in a story I wrote for the Alva Review-Courier, this will not be the Timberlake girls’s first trip to the state play-offs. They made the trip for the first time back in 2002, according to Coach Pierce. I apologize for my error.

Most of their play-off wins have been by comfortable margins. In fact, Coach Pierce said the sixth ranked Lady Tigers’ district game with Cherokee may have been the toughest in their play-off run. The Area II Final in Cushing did prove troublesome for a half—just because the Timberlake girls were so excited. After trailing Orlando-Mulhall by seven at the half, Coach Pierce got his girls calmed down, they stepped up their offense and their defensive pressure eventually wore down their opponent. “We ended up pulling away,” Coach Pierce said, whose girls are now 20-6 on the season. The team’s last loss was to Class A Pond Creek in early February. They are led by their two seniors, Erin Overton and Shalae Patton. Patton leads the team in scoring with 11.5 points a game, which means that the Lady Tigers, who put up a lot of points, have a pretty balanced team when it comes to offense. They have stepped up that offense in the play-offs. Defensively, the Lady Tigers have been solid all year. They pressure their opponents all game long. “A big key has been focusing on what we are

doing as a team,” Coach Pierce said. “Our players are unselfish, less worried about an individual shot for themselves as they are about getting a better shot for a teammate.” Coach Pierce knows the eight teams in the State Tournament are all good. He’s focusing on one game at a time, because he sees the field is “pretty balanced.” “We’re pretty excited,” said Kale of his team, who has a special honor not accorded every year to a Class B school. This year, however, this girls will get to kick-off the tournament at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds Arena. His first round opponent. That should be a special memory in itself. Their opponent is very good. Seventh ranked Corn Bible Academy knocked off second-ranked Lomega 69-56 to earn their first trip ever to the Class B State Tournament. The Lady Crusaders have two good post players and two versatile and high scoring outside players. “They are playing really well right now.” One thing is sure. The Lady Tigers would like to continue and will do their best to get a Gold Ball. Whatever happens, the experience will help the young team next year. Good luck to both the Burlington Elks and the Timberlake Lady Tigers as they start play Thursday. Two teams in the final 16 (boys and girls) at state— not bad Alfalfa County. Not bad at all.

Speeding stop leads to second drug arrest Also driving under suspension By Jim Stout A speeding stop resulted in an Oklahoma City man going to jail for drug possession and driving under suspension. Alfalfa County Undersheriff Brandon Powell was running stationary radar at 10:54 a.m. Feb. 17 on Latimer road near CR700 where residents have

complained of speeding trucks. Powell then clocked a white pickup at 76 mph in the 55 mph zone and stopped the vehicle. Powell asked the driver, James Wayne Kringlen, 48, for his license and insurance papers, but Kringlen said his license had been suspended. Dispatch confirmed that and advised the last entry on his record was a felony drug offense. Powell inquired if Kringlen had any drugs in the vehicle and he replied, “Yes, I’ve got some weed in the glove

compartment.” Powell obtained Kringlen’s permission to retrieve the marijuana and found a pill bottle with a marijuana cigarette and marijuana along with a package of Zig Zag rolling papers. Powell placed Kringlen under arrest for driving while revoked, possession of marijuana, paraphernalia and speeding. Charges filed Feb. 18 in Alfalfa County Court included unlawful possession of marijuana, subsequent offense, which could mean a 5 to 10 year sentence.

Child abuse charges face Cherokee couple Smoking meth and no running water By Jim Stout Child abuse charges were filed Feb. 22 against a Cherokee couple after they were discovered living in a home

with no running water and were seen smoking meth in the presence of their two children ages 6 and 1. Charged were Michael and Delinda Utterback who were living at 500 West Main. Michael also admitted smoking marijuana in the presence of the children, according to court records.

A drug dog searched the residence and hit on three areas, but no drugs were found. Delinda told investigators they relied on the neighbors to use the toilet, the documents reported, but the family had also used the garage and bathtub for toilet needs.

Handicapped improvements for Alfalfa courthouse sought by commissioners By Roger McKenzie For a second time, the Alfalfa County Commissioners have approved an application for a Community Development Block Grant to make the county courthouse more handicapped accessible. Last year, the commissioners approved an application, which ultimately did not receive funding. A second application was approved during Monday’s commissioners’ meeting. The grant application would help cover work on the front sidewalk along Grand Avenue, as well as the sidewalk to the front door of the courthouse, a front door ramp, and improvements to the front door and the restrooms in the courthouse. Two agenda items that received approval were an emergency

transportation revolving fund bride application and an application contract for the same. The county is borrowing money for materials for the new 70’ bridge it will build northwest of Burlington. The money borrowed and the money to repay it will come from the state. The county will provide the labor to build the bridge, which replaces an outdated pony bridge. The commissioners also approved the reappointment of Melvin Ricke and Roger Nichols to Alfalfa County’s Ambulance District Board. County citizens might find themselves on the State’s Unclaimed Property List, which could mean some extra money

for them. County Clerk Bruce Martin notified the commissioners that a copy of county names that will be on the state list is available for inspection in the county clerk’s office. Two road crossing permits were approved for District 1. One was requested by Triad Energy and the other by Crescent Services. Also given an okay was a fund transfer for the Alfalfa County Election board in the amount of $1,334. In other business, the commissioners, approved routine items including minutes of their previous meeting, payroll warrants for payment, and maintenance and operations warrants for payment.

However, he had to undergo more surgery last Friday to repair an infectious wound

from the surgery at the base of his back. Jeff said they were able to bring Dalton home Monday evening. He is recovering well and most ready to get out and see his friends as soon as possible. The South Barber community has certainly missed Dalton’s smiling face at ballgames, at school and other places. At all these events, everyone asks about Dalton and when he’ll be back. Sounds like it will be soon.

Mayor says Red Cross long on state services

A little short on donations

By Jim Stout The Northwest District Red Cross board met Feb. 24 to discuss proposed changes in staffing and service delivery as a result of some sobering statistics, according to Alva Mayor Arden Chaffee. Speakers included David Lewis, director of chapter operations; Janienne Bella, Chief Executive of the OKC region; and Christina Adcox, chief operations officer.

Oklahoma is the eighth most disaster-prone state in the country for the Red Cross, Mayor Chaffee reported. Since 2007, 6,288 local disasters in the state have involved the Red Cross. In the past four years, 24 largescale disasters have cost the Red Cross $8,579,003, Mayor Chaffee added. Conversely, only $1,906,670 was raised of offset that expense. “When we think disaster, we think Red Cross,” Mayor Chaffee affirmed. “The Northwest Chapter covers seven counties including the Panhandle and

responds to many requests throughout the year, a fair share in Woods County.” Chapter director Maryann White attended the community coffee at Share Medical on Feb. 21, Chaffee said, to promote the HEROES campaign and an upcoming 5K fundraiser the last of April. “We, as a community, need to continue our support of the Northwest District Red Cross,” the Mayor said. “Contributions can be made by calling the office at 256-3828 or me at 3273621.”

Wheat grazing test plots field day By Tim Marshall Barber County Extension Agent The Barber County Extension Office invites all wheat producers to a field day for the Wheat Grazing Test Plots on Thursday, March 17. In an effort to better compare winter wheat varieties, the test plots were established with 21 of the most popular varieties for this area in replicated plots with grazing pressure ranging from never grazed to full season grazing The McDaniel plot is located ½ mile north

of Hwy 160 on the Harper County line and the Chain Ranch plot is located approximately 5 miles south of Corwin on Corwin Road (140 Ave). The tour will begin at the McDaniel plot at 10 a.m. Lunch will be served at the Chain Ranch headquarters at noon and the plot tour at their location will begin at 1 p.m. Lunch is being sponsored and served by the Farmers Cooperative Equity Company. Due mainly to the differences in soil type at each location, there are visible advantages to certain varieties at one plot when compared to the other plot. However, if you are unable to attend both locations, you are welcome to attend only the one in your area mailto:tmarshal@ksu.edu.

South Barber Kansas offers tractor Basketball safety course April 30 teams in SubState By Yvonne Miller South Barber High School boys and girls basketball teams play in the SubState Tournament this week. Monday night the Lady Chieftains easily overcame Attica to advance to the next level where all the games will be held at Norwich. The Lady Chieftains play Norwich Thursday evening at 7:30. The Chieftains earned a bye and don’t play until Friday night. They’ll play the winner of Norwich/Argonia. Time of the boys’ game Friday was not yet determined at press time. Sub-State Championship games are Saturday with the girls starting at 6 p.m., followed by the boys at 7:30 p.m.

By Tim Marshall The Hazardous Occupation Training, more commonly known as the “Tractor Safety” course, will be offered again this year for Kansas youth who intend to operate farm machinery. If you are 14 or 15 and plan on driving a tractor for someone other than your parent or a legal guardian, you must take this course in order to protect the farmer you will be working for. If you took the course last year and received a certificate, this certificate is still valid and you need not repeat the course. If your 14th birthday is later in 2011, you can take the course but you will not receive your certificate until you turn 14. This year’s training will be held at the Pratt Community College Ag Power Technology Building on Saturday, April 30 from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. (or until completion of the driving obstacle course). Lunch will be served in the PCC cafeteria and the cost is included in your registration fee. Students will need to bring their Social Security Number and a pencil to the training. Pre-registration is required.

Because we are limited on space and the number of participants, you must fill out the registration form, participation form, and pay the $20 non-refundable registration fee prior to April 15. Enrollment will be done on a first come, first served basis and each county will be limited to ten participants so get your forms turned in early. Youth who do not reside in Barber, Pratt, Stafford, or Kiowa counties are eligible to sign up for this training with a registration fee of $25 and placed on a waiting list. If youth from the sponsoring counties do not fill all available space by April 15, those on the waiting list will be enrolled in order of registration. The registration fee will be refunded for those on the waiting list if no spot becomes available for them. Enrollment packets can be obtained by contacting the Extension Office. Deadline for enrollment is 5 p.m. on April 15. If you cannot attend this training, please contact the Extension Office at (620) 886-3971 or tmarshal@ksu.edu to find out dates and locations of training sessions in other counties in the area.
