Officers found 11 marijuana plants growing outside in buckets and nine small marijuana plants growing in Styrofoam cups inside a closet. That closet had grow lights, water, a timer, a heat lamp, containers of water,

growing chemicals, potting soil and various items of cultivation commonly used for marijuana, documents state. The investigators also found two smoking bongs in the living room, a small baggy of purported marijuana in the freezer, and a small baggie of grow stock marijuana with seeds on the kitchen table.

Helena prison employees face contraband charges Prisoners had phones, tobacco

By Jim Stout Two prison employees and two prisoners have been charged following an investigation into how prisoners were obtaining cell phones and tobacco products inside James Crabtree Correctional Center in Helena last year. Records filed May 11 in Alfalfa County Court state an investigation began last July when prisoner Usbaldo Venegas was discovered with a cellular phone. The court papers state that “numerous staff members” were alleged to be involved.

Correctional Officer Blake Huston of Enid admitted to bringing Skoal chewing tobacco pouches into the facility for his own personal use and said he once provided an offender with a half can of Skoal, court documents state. Employee Sharon West of Dacoma admitted to investigators she brought a cell phone and tobacco to prisoner Brent Berry, according to the court documents. The investigation revealed an address book in Berry’s possession that included phone numbers linking him to West. Houston and West were charged with bringing contraband into the prison while Berry and Venegas were charged with possession of contraband.

By Jim Stout Leroy Stauffer called Alfalfa County Sheriff’s office on January 6 to report someone had cut up his Allis Chalmers eight-bottom plow and hauled away most of it, according to court papers filed May 13. Undersheriff Brandon Powell went to the scene and found several hydraulic cylinders and three tires on rims with the center sections cut out. Stauffer called Enid Iron and Metal and learned they had received a cut up plow at 8:04 that morning from Richard Hart, 52, of 510 E. Harvard, Enid. The court documents state Powell and Stauffer went to Enid where Stauffer confirmed the cut up plow was his. Powell picked up two spindles to match the cut up hubs left in the field as evidence and obtained a cell phone number. Det. Nick John of Enid PD went to Hart’s residence and reported that Hart slammed the door in his face and refused to talk to him, court papers state. On Jan. 24, Powell received a call from Adam Ratzlaff stating one of his employees may have cut up a plow he shouldn’t have. Documents state Powell asked if the employee’s name was Hart, and Ratzlaff answered, “Yes.” Powell made an appointment with Ratzlaff and Hart, but they didn’t keep the appointment, documents state. A warrant for grand larceny was issued on Hart in Alfalfa County Court last week.

Celebrating 60 Years Carl Lehl and Beulah Corbin were married May 20, 1951, in the First United Methodist Church of Alva. Shortly after being wed, the couple loaded their Plymouth and headed to California where Carl was to serve in the Marines. His service took him to Korea, and was safely returned in 1954. Upon his return, he and Beulah set up house and joined Carl’s father in the water well business and wheat farming. They eventually moved their business to its present location where they worked as a team running the business and raising their four children; Ron, Judy, Gary and Mark. They both have done several other endeavors. Carl raised Blackberries and repaired all the stained glass windows in their church; Beulah provided childcare for family and friends as well as cared for their aging parents. They both worked very

hard. After fifty years of serving northwest Oklahoma, they retired to enjoy their family, grandchildren and great grandchildren, road-trips, and reunions. They

remain active in the community and in service for the First United Methodist Church. Cards may be sent to Carl and Beulah Lehl at 705 Sherman, Alva, OK. 73717.

Lynn Says

Good grief. No web site has correct Alva Airport information By Lynn L. Martin As a pilot, I know there are both private and government sources to obtain airport information.  But, it is easier to look to the internet to gather quick information in order to make a fly or nofly  decision. We’re talking about facilities information.  Later, another decision closer to flight time is made  as to whether the weather is safe. For me, the facility’s requirement has five important features: I prefer a paved runway, a lighted runway, 100 LL fuel, a courtesy car, and no control tower.  The reasons behind my thinking go like this: a paved runway is safer than a turf runway. When Alva  had a turf runway, one would often see NOTAM warnings about possible “gopher holes.” A lighted runway is preferable. It is easy to take  off from an unlighted runway at night. The aircraft’s landing light handles that well. However, if the aircraft has immediate mechanical trouble and the pilot needs to circle back quickly, lack of runway lights is a real pain and makes a safe landing very difficult.  The need for re-fueling capability is obvious. Far more private flying would occur if pilots didn’t  have to face rental car expense. I used to fly to Oklahoma City a lot. But free courtesy cars have disappeared there, and I can’t afford the $70 minimum expense of a rental car. 

Most small town airports provide a junker (usually a worn out police car) as a free loaner to transient pilots. The unwritten rule is the pilot replaces the gasoline he uses in exchange for use of the vehicle.  The town and airport benefit because the pilot will  usually purchase aviation fuel and he/she and the passengers will drive into town for a meal and other items. While I learned to fly at an airport with a control tower (Lambert Field in St. Louis), tower routing procedures can waste a lot of time. Also, there is a lot more aircraft traffic or the place wouldn’t have  a control tower. With more traffic there is a greater chance of running into each other (just like on the ground in a car) so I go with the better odds. If there is no other airplane nearby, you can’t hit it. Just a couple of weeks ago, I photographed a wedding in Lakin, Kan. I did not see a single aircraft in my part of the sky either coming or going. In compiling information for the trip to Lakin, I used internet sites exclusively.  In that search, I also looked up the Alva Regional Airport and was shocked to see NONE of the sites   mention the new runway. Web Sites For example, www.alvaregional.com shows we have one paved north-south 4400 ft. runway and one turf eastwest 1800 ft runway. Even the city’s own web-site, www. alvaok.org, shows  only the old paved runway and still shows the now non-existent grass runway. Another site, http://www.city-data. com/airports/Alva-Regional-Airport-Alva-Oklahoma.html#R2 displays the same out of date information.  The next web site is almost useless:  http://oklahoma.airportbug.org/airport-13821.html It still lists Gerald Benson as the manager and has  no runway information whatsoever. The site I prefer to use is http://www. airnav.com/airport/KAVK. This is the site I used to look up information on the Lakin, Kan., airport. It too shows only the shorter N/S runway and the non-existent

turf runway for Alva. I mentioned this to Alva Airport Manager Erik Stewart  and he said most of these sites get their information off of an official FAA form and will not change the  information merely because someone calls them and says something has changed. He said the secret is to get the FAA to update the form . . . which they’ve been trying to do. I can understand such a policy. At the newspaper, we  generally will not publish a funeral or death notice unless it originates from a funeral home. We want an “official” source that we trust. Nonetheless, this obsolete information means that the Alva airport is not seeing as much benefit from the new longer jet-capable runway because pilots  can’t learn about it. I just received a new batch of aviation maps to which I subscribe. The new runway is not mentioned in these either. Must visually identify airport And there’s one other glitch that most people  wouldn’t think about. If I flew from a distant point to the Alva airport believing there was only one north-south runway, and upon arrival looked out the aircraft window and saw TWO northsouth runways, I would be very bothered by this.  If I’m expecting a single runway, and see parallel  runways, I’m going to be pretty convinced I’ve mis-navigated and flown to the wrong airport. Early in pilot training, student’s are told to be  absolutely certain to visually identify their intended airport.  Many screw-ups have occurred when a pilot was looking  at the wrong airport while talking to the proper control tower. This means he receives clearance to land and it is a total surprise to the people at the wrong-airport to see a plane landing on their runway. Here’s a web address telling of many such mistakes mainly by commercial airline pilots: http://www.thirdamendment. com/wrongway.html Anyway, someone needs to pull whatever strings are available to update the Alva aiport information so we can benefit far more from the improved facilities.

Burlington promotes 12 students to high school By Samantha Smith The singing of the Class Song, “May the Road Rise to Meet You,” kicked off the Burlington Public School’s Eighth Grade Promotion Ceremony held Monday, May 16, in the school auditorium. Principal Joe Feely presented trophies to the eighth grade class valedictorians and salutatorians. Valedictorians, students who maintained a perfect GPA of 4.0, included Keyra Clark, Daniel Ross, Cheredan Vap, and Sadie Vore. Salutatorians Kyle Ellerbeck and Reno Talbott both had a GPA of 3.79. Superintendent Glen Elliott challenged the students to keep up their good grades so that they could be sitting in those same seats four years from now when they graduate from high school. Max Ott, Drummond native, past military commander, and current general manager and CEO of Alfalfa Electric Cooperative, served as the evening’s guest speaker. Ott talked about career goals and told the class to “stop, look, and listen.” He told the soon-to-be high school students to “stop” and start thinking about what they want in their future. He encouraged the students to “look” at the people they know and trust, to notice what those people are doing and consider whether it might be something they would be interested in doing as See Promotes Page 28

Lone bid for Alfalfa clinic building not enough By Roger McKenzie Alfalfa County will own the former clinic building next to the Great Salt Plains Health Center a while longer. On Monday at their regularly scheduled meeting, the county commissioners opened the lone bid received for the 3,800 square foot building, but the bid, even after the bidder was given a chance to raise his bid, was just a little more than half of the building’s appraised value. A team of three appraisers has appraised the building at $95,000, based on a low estimate (by today’s new building costs) of $25 a square foot for the modern looking brick structure. By state statute, the county could not accept less than 80 percent of the appraised value—making the minimum acceptable bid $76,000. But the lone bid of $40,000 (later raised to an offer of $50,000) did not reach that threshold and could not be accepted. The commissioners also rejected sheriff department vehicle bids opened last week at the request of Sheriff Charlie Tucker. Instead of accepting one of the bids received from Washburn Motors of Alva or Croft Country Chevrolet of Cherokee, the sheriff opted for a cheaper state bid vehicle that will come from Oklahoma City. The vehicle will cost $29,937.10 and it will be a police package vehicle equipped with a spotlight and wiring for lights, radios, and a computer. The fourwheel drive Tahoe can be serviced locally. Sheriff Tucker also asked for a got approval from the commissioners for $5,451.49 in materials and labor for work

on the Alfalfa County Jail locks. The locks at the jail are old and over time have ceased to work efficiently. The simple act of locking and unlocking some of the doors in the jail has become difficult. Integrity Steel Works of Colorado Springs, Col, will perform the work which includes cleaning, adjusting, and lubricating all the detention locks, readjusting the 12 or so doors in the detention area, supply and install three new locks with keys, trouble shoot all hardware, replace missing screws, verify the manual release mechanism and verify electrical operations. If extra work or materials are needed, they will be extra, although that was judged unlikely, according to Sheriff Tucker. Alfalfa County is slowly and surely gaining a financial boost due to mineral rights leases on property it owns. Two more leases were approved Monday. One was for two acres near Lambert and the other was for 0.109 acres in Jet. Chesapeake Exploration (for the Lambert area lease) and Equal Energy (for the Jet lease) each offered $500 per acre for a three-year lease and a 3/16ths royalty on any discovery. Thirteen road crossing permit requests were approved by the commissioners, with eight of them in District 1 and five in District 3. Select Energy Services (one permit in District 1), Atlas Pipeline (four permits in District 1 and five in District 3), Crescent Services (two permits in Dist. 1), and SandRidge (one permit in Dist. 1) made the requests. A detention transportation claim total-

ing $439 was approved. In other business, the commissioners approved the minutes of their previous meeting, maintenance and operations warrants for payment, blanket purchase orders, and miscellaneous officers reports.

Alabama man dies in rollover near lake By Jim Stout An Alabama man died at St. Mary’s in Enid following a rollover accident just south of the Great Salt Plains Lake Saturday. OHP Trooper Rick Wallace reported the victim, Thomas Thompson, 26, of Red Level, Ala., was westbound on SH38 about four miles north of Jet. His 2001 Ford F250 left the north side of the roadway for 284 feet, came back up on the roadway in a broadslide for approximately 113 feet rolling one and one-half times coming to rest in the eastbound lane. The driver was ejected coming to rest in the westbound lane. The OHP report listed the condition of the driver included the odor of alcohol and the cause as unsafe speed, exceeding legal limit. Seatbelts were equipped but not in use.

PBC approves hospital improvement plans for Kiowa and Medicine Lodge By Yvonne Miller After discussing and debating the issue of hospital improvements in Kiowa and Medicine Lodge, Kan., since 2008, projects are about to move forward. Monday, May16, 2011 the Barber County Courthouse courtroom was filled with county commissioners, the Public Building Commission (PBC), hospital administrators, hospital board representatives, architects, builders, bond company representatives and more. In a three-hour meeting, the PBC approved the Medicine Lodge Hospital $9 million remodeling plan and Kiowa’s $6.5 million plan to build new. As reported previously, the county commissioners approved $4 million for Kiowa and $6 million for Medicine Lodge of taxpayer money to improve their medical facilities. That’s after the commissioners put a stop to a $26.5 million bond proposal for improvements

that was narrowly approved by voters in a November 2008 election. Medicine Lodge Hospital Remodel Medicine Lodge Memorial Hospital’s approval is for a $8.5 to $9 million remodeling project. This 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, according to hospital administrator Kevin White. The PBC approved the plan of Medicine Lodge’s architects, Health Facilities Group (HFG) of Wichita and their builder Hutton Construction. The PBC also approved the funding plan for the Medicine Lodge Hospital as their GAP funding is in place to make up the difference from the approved $6 million figure to $9 million. White said local Citizens Bank agreed to purchase bonds to finance the approximate $2 million. Collateral is the hospital-owned ranchland. White said they have several other options in place to finance the remaining million if needed such as tax credits, grants, etc. White said they are currently in the publishing period in the local newspaper. “We are not spending any additional tax money,” White reiterated. He reminded that Medicare cost reimbursements to the hospital will help repay the bonds. The Medicine Lodge remodeling estimated timeline for completion is April 2013. Kiowa New Hospital Construction The PBC approved the architects’ plan for construction of a new Kiowa

District Hospital. The structure will be built on 17 ½ acres of hospital-owned land just south of old Ellis Field (the soccer field). That hospital property was annexed into the city limits a few years ago. The west side of the new hospital will be accessed by 4th Street also known as Highway 8. The backside of the hospital will be along 7th Street. Gordon Street runs along the north side of the hospital. GLMV Architecture of Wichita designed Kiowa’s new hospital. MW Builders from Texas is also involved in the project. The revised project approved by the hospital board last week is 25,362 square feet. The price tag goal is $6.5 million, hospital administrator Aldeen “Van” Vandeveer said. The PBC did not yet approve the financial aspect of the Kiowa project. That’s because the GAP funding (approximately $2.5 million) is not yet totally in place. Van estimates it will be in the next few months. Van said the hospital foundation seeks funding through grants and private enterprise. Once funding is complete, building of Kiowa’s new hospital should take 14 months. Estimated completion is in 2012. With all the approvals at the Monday meeting, bond firm Piper Jaffray, represented by Dustin Avey, will get the bond process going. County Commissioners Paul Harbaugh and Steve Garten reportedly said they plan to approve everything, they just wanted to wait until Commissioner Mike Thomas returns so he could be there for the official vote. Thomas is battling cancer.

SBHS Class of 2011 talks choices, passion and remembering By Yvonne Miller There were touching moments that caused hardly a dry eye in the house mixed with inside jokes mentioned in speeches that had near all the 19 South Barber High School graduates laughing with the crowd. Superintendent Brad Morris introduced the 37th class to graduate from SBHS as he welcomed the gymnasium full of friends and family Sunday afternoon. Class President Erin Merklein Class President Erin Merklein cleverly wove her classmates’ personalities into comments that had everyone laughing. For example she asked her classmates, “Remember the super bowl party we had in eighth grade? No one actually watched the game, except Corry, of course, the `go-to man’ for anything sports related.” Erin said, “One of my favorite quotes says, `Never forget yesterday, but always live for today. Because you never know what tomorrow may bring or what it may take away.” Referring to her “little sister Lauren” who died about a year and a half ago, Erin said, “She taught me more about life

own. And you know what you know. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.” Salutatorian Racheal Watts Class Salutatorian Racheal Watts said while her class has done everything together for 12 years, their graduation marks a new beginning, “a chance to do whatever we want with our lives.” Continuing she said, “God gave every one of us special talents and abilities that He intended for us to use. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. Now is the time to use our God-given talents, and enter the world for the first time on our own.” Racheal said where her classmates go from here all comes down to choices. She said a classic illustration of that is found in the Biblical story of Jacob and Esau, twin boys of Isaac, son of Abraham. Coming in from fieldwork and starving, Esau agreed to give his birthrights to Jacob for a bowl of stew. Racheal said, “Many of us today get caught up in trading away what’s really important for an immediate thrill.” She advised her classmates to remember that quick thrill is only temporary. “Consider the consequences before you make the decision. Choose what life you want to live, what kind of friends you want to have, what kind of person you want to be. You get to decide,” Racheal said. Remembering Lauren Merklein, Racheal referred to her prayer journal where a specific request was found – that the high school would make good decisions. “Our decisions determine the impact we have on others. Good or bad.” Racheal said the Class of 2011 wanted to honor two individuals who touched their lives: Lauren, who died as a freshman; and their principal Monty Thompson who died of cancer. Racheal called Lauren’s parents, Mitch and Shelly Merklein, and Mr. Thompson’s wife Jane to the front, presenting them with wind chimes. Saying that both “lived outstanding lives and gave us excellent examples to follow,” Racheal said that Lauren and Mr. Thompson “encouraged us to stand See SBHS Page 28 up for what we believe and make

choices based on our convictions.” Valedictorian Hailey Roark Class Valedictorian Hailey Roark advised her classmates to “look within yourself, discover what it is you are most interested in and how you can use that interest to succeed.” She said if they are “passionate” about what they do, “You will have more drive and purpose.” Hailey used the mnemonic P-O-W-E-R to illustrate her point. P is for Passion. “Whatever it is, discover it,” Hailey said. O is for Opportunity. “When those doors open, don’t be afraid to take a chance and see what’s on the other side.” W is for Work. Hailey advised her peers not to confuse labor for work. Labor is mentally and physically exhausting, she said. Work is directed toward the production or accomplishment of a task. Hailey said if you make a career out of a passion, “you will never labor a day in your life.” E is for Energize. Energize those around you to share your passion. R is for Relish. “Your passion should bring you joy! Appreciate the feeling of success you earn after working hard, and enjoy the moments of happiness your passion brings you.” “Believe in the power of your passion,” Hailey said. She ended her address with a quote by Barbara De Angelis, “The journey between who you once were, and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place.” – Before receiving diplomas and throwing the mortar boards in the air, the seniors were featured in their class slide show presentation that brought laughter and tears. The last frame showed the robed classmates walking away from the school and into their future.

well. Ott encouraged the students to ask questions and “listen” to what people had to say. He also noted that students should be prepared to adjust to life because unexpected things can happen. Reflecting on his past experiences, the CEO encouraged students to take classes that will potentially prepare them for what they would like to do. “As you move forward in your education,” he concluded, “don’t forget to stop, look, and listen…and have a little fun along the way. High School only happens once.” Twelve students dressed in caps and gowns walked across stage and received their certificates of promotion. Glen Elliott presented the class to the audience, tassels were turned, and 12 students became ninth graders. Students promoted included Keyra Clark, Kyle Ellerbeck, Tabitha James, Kenzie Kraft, Savanna Nall, Rebekah Olson, Daniel Ross, Samuel Ross, Lance Shahan, Reno Talbott, Cheredan Vap, and Sadie Vore.

A 20 page hard cover senior photo album with all images at a cost of only $7.50 per 8 x 10 page. Many families are buying two. One for the senior to keep and one for the parents as a memory book for all the years of kid raising.

Two day delivery from the lab is typical.

Most will display this hard cover book at senior receptions.

20 years ago we sold 8 photo folios for $99.00. Now, we’re selling a 20 page album with often 100 images for $150.00. That means the price per print then was $12.36 per print. This year, if there are 100 images, that’s a price of $1.50 per print.
