South Barber signs with SandRidge, hires new ag teacher, learns of cuts By Yvonne Miller South Barber’s Board of Education had a full plate at their June meeting Monday night. They learned of financial cuts from the state, hired a new vo-ag teacher and signed a mineral lease with with SandRidge Energy, in addition to many other agenda items. Board member Kent Swartz conducted the meeting attended by other members Deb Helfrich, Jeff Black, Michael Anderson and Janet Robison. Amanda Worthington received board approval as the new VocationalAgriculture teacher and FFA Advisor. A native of Illinois, Worthington taught agri-business and agronomy the past three years at Garden City Community College. Morris said that Worthington, who is single, was selected from around 12 applicants. Mineral Lease with SandRidge Superintendent Brad Morris updated board members on the proposed oil and gas lease agreement before they made a decision. Morris said after SandRidge Energy’s presentation and offer several months ago, their representatives from Barton Land Associates took the offer off the table. This is after the school board, city council and hospital board had not yet signed the lease. Those public entities were checking with counsel before signing. Last week the city council signed their lease with SandRidge after making some adjustments.

Morris said in the meantime Chesapeake Energy made a mineral lease offer to the school. He said they offered the school a signing bonus of $19,500 and 3/16ths royalty. The board had asked SandRidge to renegotiate a few items of their offer. SandRidge again put their offer on the table. As before, the offer is $500 per acre (which is a signing bonus of $18,900) and 1/6th royalty on gross production, rather than net production as in the original offer. The agreement included a few other items the school board requested. Morris said the negotiation may include “a possible donation” beyond the agreement as well. After weighing the pros and cons of both offers, the board unanimously voted to sign with SandRidge. Superintendent Tells of Lost State Aid Morris said he received financial news regarding state funding for education. This makes the final 2010-11 SB School Budget $2,012,988. That figure means a final reduction to the budget of $53,994. Morris said two factors played into the reduction: The legislature cut the base state aid by $75 per student to make that figure $3,937 per student. This resulted in a reduction of $33,488. The other factor was SB’s lower enrollment figures which resulted in a reduction of $20,506. Morris said the reduction amount

was covered by three things: conservative spending throughout the year; utility conservation; and a cushion built into the budget. The superintendent said the base aid per pupil for next year will be $3,780 which will result in an additional reduction of $70,101. Softball Cooperative Earlier in the school year the parents of Morgan Myers, who will be a freshman in the fall, requested she play softball at a neighboring school in a cooperative agreement. The request was made to Medicine Lodge and is contingent upon their approval and that of the Kansas State High School Activities Association. Morris told the board that Medicine Lodge wants to wait until the official school student enrollment date in September. Reportedly, Medicine Lodge officials want to insure another student would not kick their school into a new, larger class. Morris said the cooperative agreement would be official in January ‘12 for the spring softball season. The board unanimously approved the agreement with Morgan’s parents, Mike and Julie Myers, regarding the cooperative arrangement. School Lunches Discussion on school lunch prices and approval of the Child Nutrition and Wellness 2012 Program Agreement sparked discussion among board members. The agenda item called for a 10 cent increase on breakfast and lunch prices for 2011-12. Last school year K-6 grade lunch prices were $2; 7-12 were $2.30. Central office secretary and board clerk Julie Johnson said the state and feds want the school to charge at least $2.46 cents for lunch. She explained it has to do with reimbursement to the schools through the Child Nutrition and Wellness Program. The school’s reimbursement for meals paid for by individuals is 26 cents; for free lunch reimbursement is $2.72. The difference between the two is the $2.46 the government wants the See S.

New category of photos at Woods County Fair

By Lynn L. Martin The Woods County Extension Office and their photography superintendent have made a change in Woods County Fair Photography exhibit rules by adding a new category: cell phone pictures! The new rules also eliminate any differentiation between film and digital camera categories. That’s very smart. I doubt that one can purchase a roll of film in Oklahoma any more. I would suspect that more photos are

taken by cell phone cameras than with any other digital technique. If you think about it, nearly everyone in America carries a cell phone . . . and it is almost impossible to procure a cell phone that does not have a camera. Since a majority of today’s images are probably obtained by this method, it certainly opens up a lot of potential county fair entrants to a category of how a majority of photos are taken. I will guess the biggest problem is that many people don’t know “how” to get their photos off their cell phones. It’s hard to make a print for the county fair if you can’t get the image out of the camera. Career Tech Course I have re-upped and have agreed with the Northwest Technology Center to teach another digital photography class beginning in October this year. In that class, one of the lessons teaches students how to get their images off both traditional digital cameras and the cell phone cameras.

Another portion of that lesson shows how to reduce digital files to a manageable size so your images don’t take up terrabytes of storage. Also, one other important section deals with renaming or renumbering camera files so they can be organized and found easier. County Fair Again Viewing the photography exhibits at the county fair this year should be much more satisfying. The new rules specify a consistent print size. With that standardization, all prints will be equally viewable. In the past, many smaller prints taped to the bottom of the display board were difficult to notice. Also, the former adhesive tape mounting system tended to fail and many prints would fall to the floor. This year, the new display racks will hold the prints in vinyl display bags. These will be easier to mount. Also, the prints will be protected from damage by sticky fingers and routine handling. So my advice is plan to enter your best prints into the county fair because big improvements are planned, and you can take home some pretty blue ribbons and some cash prizes.

Parenting Through Separation and Divorce Divorcing parents are often faced with many new problems during this difficult time for the entire family. Although their marriage is ending, their role as parents continues through their lives. To help make this transition easier, Northwest Family Services Inc. staff member Ginger Smith, M.B.S. will be teaching their Parenting Through Separation and Divorce class Monday night, June 20, 2011. The class will be in Cherokee from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., in the Civics Room (1st

floor) of the Alfalfa County Courthouse, 300 South Grand. To enroll, please call Northwest Family Services at 580-3272900. Participants must pre-enroll; the class will be canceled if there is inadequate pre-enrollment. Class costs $30 per person. This class was designed at the request of the courts to help divorcing couples understand the problems their children may experience during and after a divorce or separation. It will fulfill the court order for all divorcing parents. Parents will learn skills to parent cooperatively, even though they are divorced. In the class, parents will learn how to communicate effectively with their children and with their former spouse. They will practice reflective listening

skills and will study various active communication techniques and nonverbal communications. They will also practice workable negotiation styles for dealing with conflict and rules for effective expressions. Recognizing and avoiding Pain Games is another topic of consideration. Parents will learn to recognize and cease games like I-Spy, Set-up, and Wishbone, which are likely to hurt the children. Class members will also discuss various options for parenting, such as joint custody and mediation. Classes for 2011 will continue to rotate monthly between Alva, Cherokee, and Fairview, dates are as listed below: June 20, September 19 and December 19, 2011—Cherokee July 18 and October 17, 2011—Alva August 15 and November 7, 2011— Fairview

Correction In the June 8 issue of the Newsgram, the person who pulled the gun was incorrect. It should have stated, “witnesses told police Sean Bostwick pulled a gun.” We regret this error and any confusion or embarrassment it may have caused. ---Editor

Kiowa hires officer, approves lease, rejects demolition bids Zoning hearing 7 p.m. tonight By Yvonne Miller Kiowa’s City Council’s June meeting saw a mineral lease approved, a police officer hired, plans for a zoning public hearing expected to be controversial and much more. City Administrator Nathan Law and attorney Laurel McClellan sat at the table with Mayor Brandon Farney, City Clerk Marlo Rugg and councilmen Bill Watson, Mark Lambert. Brandon Poland and Russel Molz. Zoning Public Hearing, Tonight at 7 p.m. Law reported on the public hearing regarding the zoning code. The hearing is Wednesday, June 15, 7 p.m., at the Kiowa Community Building. People are welcome to voice their opinion at the hearing. David Yearout of Yearout and Associates will be at the meeting explaining what is included and be there to answer questions. Molz said flyers are circulating around town in opposition of the zoning code.

“Some say it will hurt the town,” Molz said. Law said he’s also heard lots of comments – some opposed, others supporting. “Other area towns are zoned,” Law said. He said zoning information can be seen on the city’s website www.kiowaks.org. Mineral Lease Signed with Sandridge Council members approved a renegotiated agreement with Sandridge Energy for a sub-surface mineral lease of city property. The lease is still for $500 per acre (which is about $30,000 bonus payment for the city) and 1/6th royalty if the well produces. One change is that royalty will be on gross, not net production. There is also a stipulated minimum distance from the city. Also, the city wants to see Sandridge donate in some way to the community. Police Officer Hired Following an executive session, council hired a new police officer – David Gebers who comes from Anthony. He already has law enforcement training. Law said his starting salary will be $22,000. Gebers will have evaluations every three months with a salary

increase of $1000 after two successful evaluations. The vote was 3-1 with Poland voting no. Council adopted police department policies. Many Council Items Under public agenda, on behalf of Border Line Theatre (BLT), Yvonne Miller told council that the community building has many issues that need addressed such as electricity, air conditioning, remodeling of dressing room area, stage-lighting etc. BLT requests that Law and possibly a couple council members do a walk through of the community building with a BLT committee to assess needs. BLT has some funds to help with an improvement project and wants to see what the city can contribute to the cityowned building. City received two bids for demolition of Ashbaker’s property, deemed dangerous and unsafe. Nearly identical bids with different prices came from Mitch Reed of Kiowa and Mark Reed of Hardtner. Council noted the signatures appeared identical. Council voted unanimously to reject both bids and again start the process of this “touchy issue” as Law described it. Council approved purchase of a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 from Bogner, Inc., for between $12,500 and $13,500. City will keep the 1993 pickup for use in town. Resident Bev Miller, a Master Gardener, made a request of the city for downtown beautification. Council approved her request to put colorful See Kiowa Page 28

school to charge for lunches. She said this is so the school won’t have to subsidize their lunch program from the general fund. Robison voiced concern about charging more when students receive smaller portions. Numerous board members said they’ve received complaints about portions, so much processed food served and not enough variety. They question why more homemade items aren’t prepared. Johnson said the meals meet the requirements of the child nutrition program. When asked if homemade items would fit into those requirements, she said yes. When board members asked if the district’s food supervisor and cooks take part in trainings, etc., through the nutrition program, Johnson said she passes on the abundant amount of information to the staff. Robison said, “I want to encourage our cooks to take advantage of the training available to them.” She further expressed concern about passing a wellness plan “with the food we’re serving.” Swartz asked for an analysis of SB’s kitchen comparing it to some other school kitchens. Other board members agreed. The board passed the 10 cent increase and the Child Nutrition and Wellness agreement. Employee Changes and Other Board Business The Board also approved • Candi Davis as a full-time upper el-

ementary teacher for combined 4th, 5th and 6th grades. • The resignation of Janet Cook as assistant track coach.. • Membership in the KASB at the rate of $3,546 and the KASB Legal Assistance retainer for $1400 for the 201112 school. • ESSDACK fees for 2011-12: membership, $2900; staff assessment, $1,050. • Student Assurance Services for student insurance cost of $12,456. • A five-year lease for purchase of a new Blue Bird bus. Morris said the school received a bid from a local church to purchase one of the school’s old buses. Fiber Optic Line Tabled Purchase of a fiber optic line between the jr/sr high school and elementary school was discussed and tabled. That’s because board members want to have SCTelcom asked about working on the project before a decision is made. Tiede’s Line Construction had already bid on the project. Morris said addition of a fiber optic line will provide better connections for both school sites; provide easier backup; reduce number of servers; and increase speed. PK-6 Principal Marcia Cantrell said the PTO Cash Register Receipts project equaled 195,361 points. With that teachers could pick supplies from a catalog. She thanked the PTO for sponsoring field trips for students.

Building Improvements Superintendent Morris said that Phase I of the capital improvement plan is basically finished. That includes: installation of new doors at the elementary school; a new HVAC unit at high school; and part of the roof at the high school which is about 90 percent complete. The superintendent said Coontz Roofing did not get the area around the new AC unit sealed and the school had water damage with the rain last Wednesday. “There was major leaking into the library, classrooms and hallway,” he said. “The leak damaged 96 ceiling tiles, five computer monitors, 10 keyboards and ten mice.” Coontz is insured and will pay all damages, Morris said. Morris thanked Ron Molz for use of a crane to the set the AC unit which saved the school about $3,000. Morris said Phase II will include the rest of the high school roof; the parking lot; and elementary rooms improvements. Regarding damage to the school’s water softener from a city water leak, Morris said he is in discussions with insurance agent Bill Watson. Both the city and school have EMC insurance so a claim was filed and the outcome will be determined. Student Summer Updates Erin Merklein ended her high school track career as Class IA State Champion of both the 100 and 300 meter girls hurdles. Luke Yearout placed 6th in the javelin event at state. Naicee Gugelmeyer was selected for the State FFA Chorus at state convention and to sing solo the National Anthem at an opening session. Lane Hess and Moira Kimmel were members of the State FFA Convention Band. Ali Thurman won 2nd in the State Prepared Speaking Contest. Hailey Roark received her State FFA Degree and Casey Williams the State Proficiency Award in Turf and Landscape Management. Brooke Murphy and Micaela Kirkwood will attend the FFA Washington Leadership Conference at Washington, D.C., July 12-17. Christian Johnson played in the K101 Bowl at Woodward.

Professional Legal Help Designed to Save Money Attorney Denis Cote has seen it all.

Saving $5,000 a month! Why? Why a mobile office? The overhead for almost any downtown office will run $5k per month (Secretary, rent, utilities, phone and internet, office furniture, Insurance, etc.). By working out of his home and car, Denis doesn’t have to pay for those costs by bundling it into your legal fees.

After a 16 year career in the military Denis was seriously wounded and he was declared totally disabled. Instead of lying back and living off the government, Denis went to law school. While there, he won six student awards.

Some citizens who REALLY need legal help can’t afford a lawyer.

Obviously, Denis Cote can’t work for free. This is his career. But there is no charge for the first consultation. You can meet where ever you like: your place, a picnic table in the park or sitting in the car. Some people really like the anonymity of this method of seeing an attorney. 580-430-1062 or 580-327-1753

Needing a divorce - Both sides can save big money! Mediation is a way to avoid high costs in divorce or other civil matters. Traditionally, most divorce cases drag on for months, often using two lawyers, and accumulating large costs. Divorce and other civil matters can often be negotiated with the help of a skilled mediator. A divorce agreement can be worked out between the parties in only three meetings. Then the signed agreement is presented to a judge. When he signs it, the problem is over. Denis Cote is a certified mediator. This alternative can save both parties a lot of money.

I will cooperate in setting up payments for legal services. 580-430-1062 or 580-327-1753

Good neighbor paying with rocks in Alfalfa County By Roger McKenzie Cherokee is not Bedrock and the Alfalfa County commissioners don’t wear animal skins like Fred Flintstone, but they are accepting rocks in payment for at least some of the bills incurred by Eagle Energy. The commissioners voted at Monday’s regular meeting to accept rock in lieu of cash payment for some permits associated with the stringing high-line poles to some of the company’s well sites. The trade is worth about $17,500 to the county, much more than would be gained normally by the permits, but according to Commissioner Chad Roach,

Eagle Energy uses county roads and wants to help by being a good neighbor. The rock will be enough to pave about a mile of county road. The company will haul the rock where it is needed and the county will spread it. A total of three District 2 road crossing permits were approved for Eagle Energy Production. Also approved were five road crossing permits requested by Crescent Services—two in District 1, one in District 2, and two in District 3. Forensic interview room A forensic interview room is in the works in the District Court’s Law Library Room at the Alfalfa County Courthouse.

After hearing Assistant District Attorney Westline Ritter describe the need for the room and what it will be used for, the commissioners voted to seek three quotes to create the interview space from part of the court’s existing Law Library Room. The room will be a private interview room able to be used for a variety of purposes. One of the most needed is as a safe space to interview children in child abuse cases, but it will serve other purposes as well. The new room will be soundproofed See Alfalfa Page 30

Kiowa planters of flowers in front of businesses. The city takes no responsibility. Council discussed 2012 Budget Priorities. Many of last year’s priorities are in progress and continue at the top of the list such as: the drainage project; street repairs; property clean up; major pool repairs which are almost complete (planning to open by June 20). Some other issues listed were maintaining the city’s electrical system; softball field improvements; theatre upgrades, equipment replacement; etc. Council needs to consider annexing all of 14th Street. Currently only half the street is city-owned. This would allow the city to set and enforce speed limits. It also would allow the city to address drainage issues and cause the city to maintain the road instead of the township. In regards to Tiny Blessings Daycare, council directed Law to see how the city can help.

and will allow witnesses and children to be videotaped to preserve their testimony and reactions at crucial times in a variety of court cases. Just part of the Law Library will be used. It is currently used to house law other associated books as well as storage for such items as Christmas decorations and a camera used to make document micro films. Some items will have to be moved from their current locations. Other outdated items may be disposed of after proper procedures are completed. Six month bids opened The commissioners opened over 25 material bids for various items the county uses. The bids are from area suppliers and are good for six months. Having the bids in place allows the commissioners to obtain materials such as asphalt quickly and at a low price when the need arises. Annual business The commissioners undertook some annual business including the reappointment of Commissioner Doug Murrow to

serve as a Northern Oklahoma Development Authority (NODA) board member, as well as continuing the county’s participation in the Association of County Commissioners of Oklahoma (ACCO) self-insurance fund. The fund provides insurance protection for county property. Another annual occurrence was the county’s renewal of the Emergency and Transportation Revolving Fund. Redistricting disclaimer The Oklahoma House of Representatives Redistricting Office requested a county representative sign a disclaimer which says the Oklahoma House will provide technical support with redistricting data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Legal support will not be provided and the House of Representatives reserves the right to discontinue local redistricting support for any local government entity. The disclaimer was approval by the commissioners. Other business A transfer of funds for the Extension

Office, and a private property easement request were also approved. The commissioners gave permission for Chairman Murrow to sign documents seeking a certified administrator for the Community Development Block Grant the commissioners received recently to upgrade the courthouse’s handicapped accessibility In other business, a number of routine items were approved, including: ● the monthly alcoholic beverage report. The 10 communities within the county received a total of $8,482.78, ranging from a high of $4,007.81 for Cherokee to $22.13 for Lambert. ● blanket purchase orders and maintenance and operations warrants for payment. ● miscellaneous officer’s reports. ● appropriations ● the maximum highway expenditures report and the highway consumables reports. ● minutes of their previous meeting.
