Feely resigns at Burlington School, BOE looks for elementary teacher Share Trust offers matching funds for ‘Little Gym’ renovation

By Yvonne Miller Longtime Principal Joe Feely retired for the second time from Burlington School. The Board of Education accepted his resignation at a special meeting Monday night. Board members present were James Maltbie, Roger Allen, Beth Guffy, Allison Armbruster and Terry Graham. Others present were Superintendent Glen Elliott, Asst. Principal Aaron Randall and Minutes Clerk Jan Hill. The board “reluctantly” accepted Feely’s resignation, thanking him for his “diligence and professionalism” during his years of service. Feely first served Burlington as principal from 1987 to 1998. Then he returned as PK-12 principal for the 2006-07 year. At that time he told the Newsgram he missed the kids, camaraderie with the teachers and looked forward to again working with Superintendent Glen Elliott. This time around Feely said he’s wrestled with the idea of resignation the last several months. “I really love the kids, the teachers and working with Mr.Elliott. Burlington is a special place to teach. I still tell people I would never leave Burlington School and go somewhere else to teach. I have lots of good memories here. Burlington is a good place to teach and raise a family.” Feely said he’s glad to have he and his wife Dee Dee’s son Shane with his

wife Kiley and their three sons move back to Burlington. Shane is employed with Sandridge Energy and Kiley will stay home with the boys age three to a second grader. “We hope the boys will be basketball players,” Feely said with a chuckle. He coached basketball at Burlington about 16 years and his coaching career spanned from 1974 to 2005. Share Trust gives Matching Grant Funds for “Little Gym” Renovations The Burlington Education Foundation began a renovation project of the “Little Gym” used for a variety of school and community events. Elliott said the Charles E. Morton Share Trust in Alva agreed to match $20,000 for the project. BEF President Brent Garvie told Elliott they’ve raised near $18,000 of the $20,000 match. Any potential donors are asked to make a contribution at this time to help meet the matching funds. The superintendent said renovations include grinding paint off the floor and staining it; kitchen improvements including new counter tops, moving the refrigerator; and more. Teacher Search, Other Business Elliott said he’ll begin interviewing for a new elementary teacher, either second or third grade. This issue was listed on the agenda for discussion in a 25 minute executive session as was Feely’s resignation before action was taken. – Other board business included: ap-

proval of a budgetary request for 20112012; approval of a resolution to the State Board of Education to fully fund the flexible benefit allowance, Oklahoma Teachers Retirement offset credit, and federal free school lunch matching program. – Board received three insurance quotes for the 2011-12 school year they’ll most likely decide upon at their regular meeting June 27. Clark Bittle of Baker, Harris & Hopkins Insurance Agency, Enid, for Oklahoma School Risk Management Trust and Brad Mennem of Mennem Insurance Agency, Medford for Oklahoma Schools Insurance Group attended the meeting to present their insurance quotes. The board also received a quote from Oklahoma Schools Property & Casualty Cooperative. Board members discussed the possibility of a transportation bond for the purchase of new buses. Elliott said the current fleet of buses are 2000 models and need replaced. A list of computer equipment was declared as surplus to be disposed. Mileage report, vehicle inventory and building inventory were reviewed. Elliott said the mileage report was within a 1000 miles of last year. Giving an update on the building project, Elliott said an entrance was put on the new vo-ag building to help guard against wind. The south wall is complete between the new locker rooms and gym.

Carmen plans fireworks for 5th of July celebration The 11th annual Carmen 5th of July Fireworks display will be held on Tuesday, July 5th at the Carmen City Park.

Facebook fatigue FB loses seven million people in North America

By Lynn L. Martin (The following is totally reprinted from CNN.) There’s no denying the cultural impact of Facebook. It has united almost 700 million people, including most of you reading this, becoming the greatest social introduction platform the world has ever seen. But there are also some recent signs of “Facebook fatigue.” There is only so much you can do to socialize online, especially after you’ve exhausted your friend list. Some people also complain they’re spending so much time on Facebook that they’re short-changing the rest of their lives. Evidence suggests a small but increasing number of users – at least in North America, where Facebook use is especially saturated – may be shunning the site. The site lost more than 7 million active users in the United States and Canada last month, according to data from the blog Inside Facebook, although Facebook disputes those figures. Others are consciously reducing the time they spend on the site. “I figured out that I wouldn’t look back as an old man and wish I had spent

more time on Facebook,” says David Cole, an IT manager from Boston. Cole said he believes the popular social-networking site is a useful tool, but not a replacement for what he calls “realbook” experiences. “Instead of working on an essay, I would waste time browsing people’s walls,” says Kip Krieger, a college student from Virginia, who like Cole has consciously reduced how much time he spends on Facebook. On top of that, Facebook has become predictable, Krieger says. “It’s really gotten to a point where I know pretty much what my friends are going to post. They usually just write the same thing over and over again, and I am getting sick of that.” Joshua DeRosa, a Salt Lake City graphic artist and former Facebook user, agrees. “I don’t need to see pics or hear updates about people’s babies,” he says. “I know what babies look like, and while you might think what Junior did was the cutest thing ever, I couldn’t care less.” Others contacted for this story say constant status updates may inadvertently discourage more meaningful and sensory interactions that can only take place offline. “My mom quit Facebook because she wanted us to call her on the phone and see her in person more,” says a 29-yearold Provo, Utah, man who wishes to remain anonymous. Maybe mother knows best. “It’s working,” he says. Obviously, there are a lot more satisfied customers of Facebook than disgruntled ones. You don’t get to half a billion users by upsetting people. So are these outspoken Facebook shunners a tiny minority or part of a growing trend

(or both)? Facebook won’t say how many users have deleted their accounts, so the trend is difficult to quantify. But if you type “de-l-e” into a Google search query, “delete Facebook” is the No. 1 predictive result, meaning it’s a popular search among Google users. Never mind the numerous pages of related articles on “how to” and “why you should delete” your Facebook account. Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt, however, maintains that any such withdrawal is minor and short-lived. “More often than not, people who deactivate do so temporarily and come back after a break,” he says, “like students pausing to focus on finals or people going camping and not wanting their profile to be untended for a weekend.” Entrepreneur Max Salzberg, on the other hand, says the exodus is real. “Thinking that Facebook is forever is like thinking that AOL was the be-allend-all of the Internet,” he says. “Eventually, everyone will use something else.” Salzberg hopes you’ll use his upcoming Facebook alternative: a rival site called Diaspora that promises to help keep users’ worlds from colliding. Diaspora lets users sort friends into groups so updates and photos are shared only with certain people, not everyone on one’s friend list. The idea is that mom, for example, will no longer be privy to the more intimate details of your life. Still in its alpha, or by-invitation-only phase, Diaspora also has settings that are by default private. “Since Diaspora is actually made up of a bunch of sites across the Web, it is about sharing in the way you want and letting that drive how you express yourSee Says Page 26

Red Cross Alfalfa Courthouse comes to aid elevator not fixed yet of firemen near Freedom For two days the American Red Cross Disaster Action Team from Woodward provided relief to nearly 200 firefighters battling a wildfire near Freedom, according to a statement Friday from the Oklahoma City Red Cross office. At last report, the fire remained in Woodward County south of the Cimarron and did not involve any Alva fire equipment or personnel. Red Cross relief for the effort included hundreds of meals, snacks and bottles of water. Most of the meals were donated by McDonald’s in Woodward, Mazzio’s in Woodward and United Super Market of Woodward, the Red Cross statement said. A member of the Red Cross team at the Northwest Oklahoma Chapter said Friday the fire was still burning, but no homes had been affected. However, the flames continued to threaten cattle in that area.

By Roger McKenzie The Alfalfa County Courthouse elevator isn’t fixed after all. After working for about a week, then going down, then working for another week or so, the elevator is now down again and waiting a more expensive fix than was originally projected. American Elevator, the company working on the elevator, now believes that leaking oil is coming from a hole in the jack. Replacing the jack could cost in the neighborhood of $30,000. About two weeks ago, the company realigned the cylinder and did other work. It was part of an original proposal by American Elevator’s Tony Fox that he felt would fix the elevator for less than $7,000. Fox felt so good about the fix that he included a one year guarantee on the company’s work. Since there was a guarantee and the price was much less than an estimated $140,000 for a new elevator, the commissioners approved the work. Now it appears that the cost of repair may quadruple, although it would still be considerably less than the cost of a new elevator. The problematic elevator was dis-

cussed Monday during the unforeseen portion of the Alfalfa County Commissioners’ meeting. No vote was taken, but differing information was presented concerning the need to get quotes to do the job. County Clerk Bruce Martin said three quotes would be needed according to information he had received from Cheryl Wilson with the State Auditor and Inspector’s Office. However, a source contacted by Alfalfa County Commissioner’s Chairman Doug Murrow indicated that no quotes would be needed since the work is for repair to an existing elevator and not a new one. “We don’t need a new elevator,” Commissioner Murrow said. If quotes are obtained, Commissioner Chad Roach expressed concern that KONE, the company which had previously been maintaining the elevator, might get the job. He said his concern was due to a state inspector’s report. His biggest concern, however, is the length of time that the elevator may be out of service. “It can’t be down a long time,” he said.

Tayla Kimball receives Legislative State 4-H Scholarship Lunch Monday in Cherokee Tayla Kimball of Medicine Lodge received the Extension Step Ahead scholarship for the Southwest Area. The scholarship is sponsored by the Extension Professional Organizations. Gordon Hibbard, president of The Kansas 4-H Foundation, announced and presented the educational awards during the annual 4- H Emerald Circle Banquet June 2 in Manhattan. Hibbard noted that the event creates an opportunity for scholarship donors to meet the beneficiaries of their gift. The Kansas 4-H Foundation is making more than $40,000 in scholarships available to 4-H members for postsecondary education for the 2011–2012 academic year. Scholarship recipients are selected by an application and review process, and the scholarships vary in value, from $400 to $1,500, Hibbard said. Tayla is a member of, Stampede 4-H Club and her parents are Alan and Anita Kimball. In Tayla’s scholarship application, she shared the impact of 4-H on her. “After my 7th birthday, my mom signed me up for 4-H, and to be completely honest, I hated it. Why would

anyone want to stand in front of an audience and give a speech? Were they crazy? Looking back, I am so grateful my mom never let me quit, because 4-H has made the biggest impact on the way I am today. It taught me many life lessons, especially self-confidence and leadership.”

Representative Jeff Hickman along with Senators David Myers and Patrick Anderson will meet with constituents Monday at noon on June 27 at The Farmers Table Restaurant in Cherokee to discuss the recently completed legislative session. All interested parties are welcome to attend. Lunch is Dutch Treat with additional seating for those not eating.

self,” he says. “Giant monolithic social networks don’t make much sense.” Another Facebook alternative called Path limits users to 50 friends. The goal, says founder (and ex-Facebook exec) Dave Morin, is to promote intimate and memorable sharing. Still, it’s hard to ignore the social behemoth that Facebook has become, especially since more than half of all Americans now have an account. “I do feel pressured to participate,” says DeRosa. “People act like you are an alien when you tell them you aren’t on it.” Toby Bushman, 27, of Southern California, felt so much pressure that she decided to rejoin Facebook, and is glad she did. “Having that connection with others is a very powerful thing,” she says. “It makes me feel like I’m a part of something bigger and more grand than just my life as a stay-at-home mother.” Even some of those who grumble about Facebook admit they’ll never completely dump the site. “There are too many people I want to keep in contact with,” says Krieger. Facebook officials say their service is good for people. “Facebook can be like broccoli,” Schnitt says. “Everyone can benefit from it but not everyone will want to. “But you won’t know until you try,” he adds. “Thus, we’d encourage you to sign up and share as little or as much as you want. If you have a good experience, we hope you’ll stay. If not, come back and see us again, because we’re constantly working to improve the service and delight people in ways that aren’t possible offline.”

15 road crossings indicate Waynoka FFA’s no letup in energy boom new secretary for Alfalfa County By Roger McKenzie In what may be a recent record for road crossing permit requests, the Alfalfa County Commissioners approved 15 road permits at Monday’s regular meeting—an indicator that the oil and gas boom going on in the county shows no sign of letting up. Sandridge (5); Crescent Services (4); Select Energy Services, LLC (4); Rodco Services (1); and Triad Energy, Inc. (1) were granted permits. Ten of the requests were for District 1, two for District 2, and two for District 3. With the remaining permit crossing in both District 2 and 3. A week ago, the commissioners accepted six-month bids on various materials and services that the county uses. The bids allow to the county to quickly get the things it needs on a regular basis.

One of the bids—for Rick Dietz’ welding services—was apparently not notarized as required for all bidders. The discovery may mean that a service provider of a service the county regularly uses may not be used, at least until the next six month’s bids are sought. Commissioners expressed disappointment and referred the matter to the district attorney’s office. Commissioners accepted the county treasurer’s Resale Property Fund Financial Statement. The statement showed a beginning balance of $69,843.89 and a total reserves amount of $82,094.60 after $12,250.71 in unapportioned items were added. The amount subject to apportionment was zero. A detention transportation claim involving a juvenile was approved. The claim totaled $355.98. Also approved was an interlocal agreement between Grant, Kay, Noble counties and Alfalfa County was also approved. The agreement calls for the counties to cooperate together in Circuit Engineering District decisions involving maintenance, construction, inspection, purchases, and emergency services. In other business, the commissioners approved minutes, maintenance and operations warrants for payment, blanket purchase orders, and miscellaneous officers’ reports.

Chassidee Koehn is now serving as the Waynoka FFA’s 2011-2012 Secretary. Chassidee is the daughter Bruce and Nancy Koehn. She is an active student at Waynoka High School by being involved in many school activities. She is involved in basketball, softball, FCCLA, FCA, and the academic team.

Farm Bureau Safety Camp

Woods County Farm Bureau sponsored two teenagers at the 43rd annual Oklahoma Farm Bureau Safety Seminar held June 6-8, at Tatanka Ranch near Stroud. Hosted by Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s Safety Services division, the summer camp teaches young people, ages 13 to 17, about the importance of rural safety, youth leadership and teamwork. This year’s agenda included both common and new issues that teens encounter such as texting and driving and vehicle and equipment safety. In addition to learning safety protocol that surrounds newer technological issues, campers participated in activities and simulations related to team building, ATV safety, electrical safety and DUI prevention. Those who attended the seminar also had the opportunity to experience a ropes course at Camp Redlands near Stillwater. Representing Woods County at the seminar were Colton Budy and Josiah Darr. A total of 29 students attended the three-day event.

Matthew Richert, a vice president for the firm of Stephen H. McDonald and Associates, the company which put together the bonds, presented the board with five bids received from investors interested in purchasing the bonds. The board opened the bids and selected the low bidder. UMB Bank, N.A. of Kansas City was awarded the bonds after offering the lowest interest rate of 1.450032 percent. The rate means that the district will pay an interest cost of $22,910.50 as the bonds are retired over their five year lifespan.

By Yvonne Miller Plan to cool off and escape to Neverland in Kiowa’s Community Building the evenings of June 29 and July 1 at 7. Border Line Theatre presents a children’s production of Peter Pan. The play tells the story of a mischievous boy who can fly and magically refuses to grow

They interact with mermaids, Indians, fairies, pirates, and (from time to time) meet ordinary children from the world outside. Peter Pan is a character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J.

ENID, Okla. (AP) — Police in Enid say they believe heat played a role in the death of a woman whose body was found in the yard outside her home. If confirmed, the death of Brenda Nustvold would apparently be the first heat-related fatality in Oklahoma thus far this year. Nustvold’s body was found shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday when the temperature was 99 degrees. Officers said neighbors had seen Nustvold working in the yard since about 9:30 a.m. Police say Nustvold was in her mid40s. Sgt. Bryan Hart told the Enid News and Eagle that the body was sent to the state medical examiner’s office to confirm the cause of death. An autopsy will be later this week, according to Amy Elliott, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner. Elliott said there have been no con-

firmed heat-related deaths in the state yet in 2011. In Oklahoma City, Emergency Medical Services Authority spokeswoman Lara O’Leary said a heat alert is in effect for central Oklahoma. She said the ambulance service has responded to about 40 heat-related calls in the past two weeks, 10 on Saturday, with most due to heat exhaustion. “It’s no surprise that Saturday we had 10” O’Leary said. “There’s a lot of people who wait until the weekend to get out and do things they can’t do

during the week, like walkers, joggers, golfers. “We call them weekend warriors.” EMSA spokesman Chris Stevens in Tulsa said 47 people in northeastern Oklahoma have been treated for heatrelated illnesses since June 1, but a heat alert has not been issued there. The National Weather Service said Monday would remain hot, highs are expected above 100 degrees in western Oklahoma, before a cold front moves through the region, lowering temperatures into the low to mid 90s on Tuesday.

tor’s chair for the first time. The Jacobs’ middle-school aged daughter Caitlin is also on stage in Peter Pan as she has been in several shows. Connie said, “The kids have been wonderful to work with and so have their families. Some have really surprised us with their stage talent. Truly I have enjoyed this so much. It’s given 30 kids a chance to be on stage and be in front of the lights.” Chris loves acting and has appeared on the Border Line stage in numerous productions – even in the lead. Of his first time in the director’s chair, Chris said, “It’s a lot of fun. Quite a few

of the kids are really good at this acting business.” Chris admitted he loves being on stage the most, but said he realizes how valuable it is to have experiences like this.
