A Vietnam veteran tells of his lifetime call to serve military and ministry Pastor Bud Ruggia recalls being an Intelligence officer to a U.S. consul By Yvonne Miller “I felt the call to service when I was 17 years old,” Pastor Bud Ruggia said. “I knew I wanted to be a minister, but I got distracted in the civil rights movement,” Ruggia said. As a student at North Texas University in Denton, Texas, in the 1960s, he said, “I was involved in the peaceful side of the movement. We had white students who were not angry, but were just trying to get justice. Then we had some black kids that wanted to get even. Our immediate goal was to integrate the restaurants around campus, but the black students had a larger agenda. The local townspeople had different values, and violence ensued. Our college felt it had received a black eye because of the national press coverage.” Ruggia got his draft notice in 1962. He chose to join the U.S. Air Force. He graduated near the top of his Officer Training School (OTS) class and served at Lackland Air Force Base three years as a training officer and general’s aide. Following that, he was trained as an intelligence, officer which ensured a tour to Vietnam. He first served in Da Nang as director of operational intelligence for a wing of 60 F-4 Phantom jet fighters operating primarily over North Vietnam. “Lots of our targets seemed meaningless,” Ruggia said. “We were striking villages – killing innocent people. I insisted that we change our strategy and looked for military targets like fuel trucks and troop carriers. Our results were good, but we were only one of six The Alva Review-Courier / Newsgram is published Wednesday by Martin Broadcasting Corp. 620 Choctaw St. Alva, Oklahoma 73717 Lynn L.

wing units. “General Momyer, who commanded all air operations in Vietnam, visited Da Nang and asked me why we were so successful. I explained our targeting strategy, and he invited me to join his staff and target all Air Force strikes in the southern 60 miles of North Vietnam. One target I was working with involved a river that didn’t seem to go anywhere, but the enemy was very active around it,” Ruggia recalled. Investigating, they found some old World War II-vintage magnetic mines. Our pilots dropped hundreds of those mines in that river, which proved “very effective,” Ruggia said. He later learned that the area they were attacking was the headquarters of General Diap, the North Vietnamese military commander. Not a pilot himself, Ruggia said he sometimes flew in the back seat of an F-4 Phantom with Colonel Bob Malloy, the wing commander, on armed reconnaissance missions. “We used most of our fuel on take-off because we were loaded with so many bombs. We had to refuel twice in mid-air. If we saw anything that looked suspicious, we were to hit it.” He said those missions took about three hours, one of which was over enemy territory. “We were shot at during most missions, but seldom hit. Normally, we flew at about 5,000 feet – a mile in the air. But when the Colonel spotted a target, we went much lower – about 100 feet. The F-4 was designed for nuclear war with Russia, so it wasn’t very accurate. We had to fly low to be sure of hitting the target and that scared me. One

time we had pieces of tree in one engine. The tree had just been blown up by our wingman’s bomb. You were never up there by yourself.” Recalling those reconnaissance missions, Ruggia said, “Colonel Malloy was a very aggressive pilot; when he was focused on a target, I was more afraid of the colonel than I was of the enemy.” Shot at During the Tet Offensive His most frightening experience was See Ruggia Page 12

Pastor Bud Ruggia knew he wanted to enter a life of ministry at age 17, but also served his county with a distinguished career woven throughout. He’s shown here at a Veteran’s Day service as one of the many veterans honored. Photo by Yvonne Miller

Driver in fatal collision identified

By Marione Martin The office of the Oklahoma Medical Examiner has identified the fatally injured driver of a vehicle involved in a collision on Jan. 21 in Alfalfa County. Tina Ann Gorman, 44, of Burns Flat was driving a 2007 Ford pickup westbound on SH-11 at County Road 660 in a construction zone at 3:30 p.m. Levi Preston Wilson, 35, of Newalla was driving a 1998 Volvo semi eastbound when his brakes locked up for an unknown reason. The semi left the road to the right, re-entered the roadway and crossed the center line, striking the pickup. Gorman was pinned approximately 2.5 hours before being extricated by the Cherokee Fire Department using the jaws of life. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Darrin Lancaster was in charge of the investigation with assistance by other OHP troopers, other law enforcement agencies and fire departments.

Principal Meriwether reemployed for 2014-2015 school year By Laura Scott The Waynoka School Board met for its regular meeting on Monday evening. The meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m. with all members present. No visitor comments were given. All items on the consent agenda were approved by one vote. In the superintendent’s report, Loren Tackett announced that the FFA earned $41,700 before the silent auction at Wednesday’s BBQ dinner. The basketball game previously scheduled

for Tuesday was rescheduled to Monday evening due to the possibility of bad weather. The Trends software license and support agreement with ADPC was approved for the 2014-2015 school year. Last, the Waynoka Board of Education voted to renew the employment of Michael Meriwether, principal, for the 20142015 school year. The next meeting of the board of education is scheduled for March 3 at 7:30 p.m.

Microfilm scanner, printer installed at Waynoka library

Waynoka librarian Jo Ann Bellmon receives training from Darrel Stockham on the use of the library’s new microfilm scanner

With the financial assistance of the Charles Morton Share Trust, the Waynoka Public Library has purchased a St ViewScan II microfilm scanner and an HP LaserJet printer for use with the scanner. Darrel Stockham, Salina, Kan., set up the new scanner last week and demonstrated its use for city librarian Jo Ann Bellmon and library board members Carolyn Baird and Sandie Olson. The library’s first scanner was purchased about 20 years ago, also with the assistance of the Share trust, and saw many hours of use by genealogists, history researchers and individuals who enjoyed reading the back issues of the Woods County Enterprise and other area newspapers dating back to the late 1800s or early 1900s. Through the years, the library added to its collection, purchasing microfilmed copies of the newspapers from the Oklahoma Historical Society, as well as having some early City of Waynoka records and Congregational church records microfilmed by the Society. The first machine, which was many times the size of the new one and had a built-in printer, finally became irreparable, and funds were sought for a replacement. The new machine, which cost $8,295, is ready for use in the genealogy section of the library. Jo Ann Bellmon would welcome the opportunity to demonstrate its use, which involves first loading a reel of microfilm into the scanner. The images of the film on the scanner are projected frame by frame onto a computer screen or onto the user’s lapSee Library Page 22

Lynn Says

Small camera market is dwindling and so is my NWTC class By Lynn L. Martin (The first section of this column is from the Wall Street Journal) The compact digital camera is fading fast. As global shipments plummet – down 42 percent in the first five months of 2013, according to the Camera and Imaging Products Association, a Tokyo-based industry group – manufacturers are scrambling to adapt to a world where customers value the convenience of smartphones for quick shots they can share on social networks like Facebook and Instagram. The changes are forcing some of the biggest camera makers, including Fujifilm Holdings Corp. and Panasonic Corp.,

to pare product lines and adapt offerings. Some are choosing to focus on more high-end cameras as interest in the classic compact, or “point-and-shoot,” fades. Canon Inc. last week lowered its fullyear profit outlook by 10 percent, citing slumping camera sales. In a sign of the dramatic downturn in the market, Canon also cut its compact digital camera outlook for the second time in three months. * * * It’s a no-brainer to see what’s happening. When a user gets a free digital camera within any smart phone, why carry a small second camera that is less handy and costs more money? Most people take pictures to share with others. The smart phone cameras make it very easy to send a photo to a relative via email or post on socia media. I’ve noticed lowering standards of photo quality that people are willing to accept from the smart phone cameras. One problem with cell phone cameras is while most of them have sufficient megapixel resolution, and some have significant adjustment capability, few people want to delve into the menu system in order to change the creative settings. So they simply do “point and shoot” and you don’t need a vo-tech class to learn how to do that. * * * I presented the above to say this: For the past few years I’ve been teaching a digital photography class at the Northwest Technology Center (NWTC) on the Alva campus. For the first three or four sessions, the enrollment maxed out at the 12 seats available. Indeed, the school had a waiting list for the first few classes in case someone dropped out. In the last two years, the enrollment in the class has been falling in parallel with the falling sales of small digital cameras. The fall 2013 class did not “make” because not enough people signed up. Another offering of the class is on the NWTC schedule to begin Feb. 13 at 5:30 p.m. and runs for four-weeks. I have a feeling if this class does not “make” it will be the last offered for a while. I’m not whining here. I’m just recog-

nizing that people don’t purchase telephoto or wide-angle lenses to augment the creativity of their smart phone (although such devices are on the market). About 25 percent of the class time is devoted to composition. These lessons apply to any camera on the market. So whether you use a smart phone, a small digital camera, or a full fledged DSLR, the composition lessons equally apply. After the first night’s lesson, then the next week the students are to bring back samples of how they applied the composition rules. Using a digital projector, we review these in class so everybody learns from each other. The other segments of the class deal with different camera controls and shooting modes. Another segment deals with Photoshop (photo-editing software) use to improve your images. It is my experience that I rarely take a photo that is not helped a lot by the tools of Photoshop. The Photoshop use requires pretty significant computer practice. In the past, I’ve had a teaching assistant whose job was to help beginners who were struggling with computer and Photoshop techniques. Which brings this discussion to another falling business: the desktop computer business is fading much like pointand-shoot digital cameras. The smart phone cameras offer simple brightness, contrast and color adjustments. You do not need Photoshop to achieve those. Which brings us to one more change. Adobe is taking a huge gamble. They no longer sell Photoshop in boxes. Users have to “subscribe” to Photoshop on a monthly rental basis. Casual users cannot or do not want to afford the monthly rates. If the class “makes” we may have to change our software to Photoshop Elements. This is a cheaper version meant for home-users that is crippled enough that professional people won’t be satified with it. (The software can’t change RGB mode to CMYK, for example.) I don’t know if the NWTC money people will be interested in buying copSee Says Page 17

Cherokee school board discusses bond issues, potential new members By Rocki Long The Cherokee Board of Education held a regular meeting Monday night. During the administrative report Superintendent Cory Ellis presented a slide show that explained the 4.5 million dollar bond issue in detail. Ellis presented stage one of the current project proposal to cover five projects totaling $3,670,000. The five projects are: • Track/football field $ 1,440,000 • Baseball/softball complex $830,000 • Elementary school renovations $775,000 • Auditorium $425,000

• Vocational ag barn $200,000 The board addressed the series issue bond of $ 4.5 million in financing costs and only $3.67 million towards construction. There will be a 10-year payout for eight bonds for two years apiece. The bonds will raise taxes 15 percent. Current bond issues expire in four years and rates will continue to go down because of increasing assessed valuation. The board’s goal is to set a tax level that could allow multiple series bond issues to obtain the capital-outlay funding over the next 12 years without raising taxes, thereby taking advantage of district growth in assessed valuation.

Cherokee School Superintendent Cory Ellis points to a Powerpoint slide as he explains the need for a bond issue series to address numerous problems in this physical plants of the Cherokee Schools.

Resignations There were two resignations at the meeting on Monday. Sheila Means, the current media specialist, will be retiring May 16, and Claudia Cooksey, an elementary teacher of 40 years, will also be retiring at the end of the school year. Fund Comparison The board was satisfied overall with the fund comparison in the month of January. The general fund was up $767,401.94; the building fund was up $32,706.83; and the sinking fund was down $9,557.68. The total of all funds is $1,977,917.33, which is up from last $814,725. Other Business Cherokee schools received $27,300 from Northwest Technology Center in Alva, which reimbursed the cost transporting Career Tech students to Alva. There were two potential board members at the meeting on Monday. The first was Marsha Tucker, a resident of Cherokee for 13 years, who is the general manager of the Cherokee Messenger and Republican. She would like to be on the board to make sure her daughter gets what she needs in a school. The second potential board member is Kory Littlefield. Littlefield was a corporate pilot for 12 years, flying athletes and other professionals, before deciding to come back and help his family on the farm. He now has one child in the Cherokee schools and a 2 year old, and would like to involve himself in the school system. The board will choose the new board member at the next board meeting. The board ended their meeting by convening into executive session to evaluated Middle School principal Chad Hutchison and High School principal Jeremy Hickman.

the night of the Tet Offensive (North Vietnamese surprise attacks in January 1968, despite a cease fire agreement during the Tet Lunar New Year celebrations). Ruggia said he had attended a party that night and felt sick. He headed down the road to headquarters to get something that would settle his stomach. “There were rice paddies on one side and a runway on the other side. No security lights were on but I didn’t think much of it until I started hearing voices and shots. I was being shot at and all I had was a headache and an old World War II Tommy gun that I normally kept in my aircraft survival pack. I realized the Vietcong were out there. They came to attack a nearby headquarters, but I found myself in a “shoot and scoot” situation. “I would fire and run. The encounter lasted no more than 15 minutes, but it felt like forever,” Ruggia said. “I had nightmares for years afterward. I didn’t follow the rule that we were not supposed to be armed on base, because I had a gun with me. But I would have been dead without it.” At General Momyer’s headquarters Ruggia was responsible for all targets in Route Pack One (which was in the southernmost part of the country near the South Vietnam border). He targeted up to 500 airplanes each day. The goal was to shut down that 60-mile area and stop supplies (fuel, etc.) before the Vietcong could get under the jungle canopy. “That plan was pretty effective,” Ruggia said. Worked at the Pentagon, Receives Top Award General Paul Watson, who had command of the fighter wing in Da Nang, ended up at the Pentagon and asked Ruggia to come and work for him. He

became a Soviet-European specialist at the National Military Command Center (NMCC). As a part of the Defense Intelligence Agency he sent written materials over to the White House when Nixon was president and Henry Kissinger was National Security Advisor. Ruggia recalls Kissinger walking into his office and visiting with him about a briefing Ruggia was writing for him. “That briefing became significant and landed on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, even though it was still classified Top Secret,” Ruggia said. It involved a military battle on an island between China and Russia. At the NMCC, Ruggia edited the Soviet-East European portion of the Daily Intelligence Summary and the Daily Analytical Warning Summary. These were part of the President’s morning briefing. Saying there is a high career “mortality” rate for people in the high-visibility position he served in, Ruggia said, “I made it for a three-year tour.” He received the Joint Service Commendation Medal, which is the highest honor the Joint-Chiefs-of-Staff can give for noncombat service. A Call to Return to Ministry “At that point I was struggling about whether I wanted to stay in the military. I had become really good at killing people, but I asked myself if that’s what I wanted my life to be all about. The answer was no.” He said one general was convinced World War III was about to happen and to counter, “I foolishly suggested the U.S. take action to make the enemy believe Americans were going to attack. It got pretty scary.” Ruggia said he had been nominated to become the new chief of Current Soviet Intelligence for NATO, but he declined the nomination. It was time to return to

ministry. It was hard to get his discharge papers with the war ongoing, but he did and entered seminary at Southern Methodist University in 1970 – graduating in ‘73. Admitted to the PhD program, he realized his interest was in pastoral ministry. He became as associate professor of religion at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls and director of the Wesley Foundation (Methodist ministry). There he met a Texas senator who nominated him to become a consul within the Department of State. He served a total of eight years as a Foreign Service Officer in Africa and Canada. Ruggia preached at missionary churches and taught at a Canadian seminary during that time. “The Lord was working on me,” Ruggia said of his decision to return to Texas. “I had been assigned to the US embassy in Rwanda, and the State Department wanted me to put my six-yearold daughter in a European boarding school. I said, `no way.’ It was time for me to leave.” He said at different times throughout this interview about different obstacles he faced, “Don’t ever tell me I don’t have a choice.” He returned to Dallas and became the chief executive officer of Intertrans Trading, providing goods for U.S. embassies and businesses overseas. Ruggia also helped support Church World Service in the Sudan. But it was time for him to return to ministry. After three pastorates in Texas, his interest turned to becoming a hospital chaplain. That eventually brought him to St. Mary’s Hospital at Enid in 2000 where he served for 10 years. He said, “The emotional yo-yo (of being a chaplain) gets to you after a while.” His road led to serve a church in Drummond and then north just across the border in Kiowa, Kan., where he is pastor of the Congregational church. As a young teen he didn’t believe the words of Christians preachers were true. A pastor gave him a stack of theological books to read. “I realized the language of Christianity is the language of men speaking on several different levels. I realized those early Christians really did know something. Preaching requires integrity and a real thirst for knowledge. Sharing Biblical insight with people has always been and remains my passion.”

By Marione Martin A law enforcement officer received an anonymous tip about a woman posting on Facebook that she had pain pills for sale. According to documents in the case, Alfalfa County Deputy Sheriff Blake Trekell received the tip on Jan. 28 that Cassidy Carter of Carmen was posting the message on her Facebook profile. Using an undercover Facebook account, Trekell exchanged 96 messages with Carter regarding the pills including the amount, price, types and locations to meet to exchange them. Trekell said Carter told him her neighbor had some pills like morphine that she wanted Carter to get rid of for her. Carter also wrote that she needed some cash and had some Soma she could spare. Trekell made arrangements to meet the next day in Goltry to purchase 20 Soma pills and whatever her neighbor could bring. On Jan. 29, Cherokee Chief of Police Andrew Minson and Trekell went to Goltry to arrange a contact with Carter and the unidentified female who would be driving her. Carter had agreed to meet at 1 p.m. in the Goltry city park in a grey colored Ford car. When the described car pulled into the park, Minson, who was dressed in plain clothes, approached the vehicle. At the same time, Trekell drove toward them in his marked sheriff’s patrol vehicle and pulled in behind the car with his lights activated. Carter had approached Minson after getting out of the car. Trekell asked Carter to put her hands behind her back so he could handcuff her. Instead she put her hand in her left front pocket. He told her to remove it and turn around, which she did. Chief Minson stayed with Carter while Trekell checked on the occupants of the car, one of whom

he believed was the neighbor involved in the transaction. In the car were a male driver, Regina Sellers in the front passenger seat, a backseat passenger who was later identified as Sellers’ 18-year-old daughter, and Carter’s three-month-old daughter. After detaining the car’s occupants, Trekell returned to his patrol vehicle to question Carter. She told him the pills were in her left front pocket, and he removed sealed cigarette wrappers containing the pills. The pills were later identified as 20 acetaminophen tablets, a schedule III narcotic, and 20 Carisoprodol tablets, a schedule V narcotic. Trekell asked Carter which pills she intended to sell and she said the ones in the sealed containers although she planned to use some herself. Answering questions about her neighbor, Carter told him she thought the pills she had were morphine but they ended up being something not even close or nearly as good so they didn’t bring them. Trekell had Carter exchange seats with Sellers. At first Sellers said she had no idea why Carter wanted to go to Goltry. Later she said Carter told her she needed to go to Goltry to sell some pills. When Trekell asked about the neighbor Carter said needed to sell some pills, Sellers told Trekell it was her. She said they were in an ibuprofen bottle in the front seat. Both the driver and Sellers’ daughter said they only knew they were going to Goltry to meet a friend. Carter and Sellers were arrested. Cassidy D. Carter, 27, of Carmen has been charged with three felonies: child neglect, conspiracy to commit a felony and unlawful possession of controlled dangerous drug with intent to distribute. Regina Danielle Sellers, 39, of Carmen has been charged with conspiracy to commit a felony.

ies of a lesser program for what may turn out to be a final session of this series of classes. So this will likely be a Photoshop use class. But let’s see if one more round of the class can be achieved. Four straight Thursday evening classes are from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The in-district tuition is $30 plus $10 fees. Senior citizens get free tuition. I can’t recall the out-of-district tuition, but it’s not too much more. Most of the students in the last few classes have been out of district from Kansas or the Panhandle. The NWTC phone is 580-327-0344 to reserve a spot in the class or to ask questions about fees.

Kiowa Hospital District end-of-year financial reports, purchases and more By Yvonne Miller The Newsgram ran a story last week about part of the Kiowa Hospital Board meeting that happened Jan. 23. The remainder of happenings from the board meeting are in this article. The first article addressed public comments and support of ARNP Patty McNamar; approval of a three-year contract with Dr. Paul Wilhelm; the hiring of former SC Telcom general manager Steve Davis of Medicine Lodge as interim hospital administrator/ chief executive officer until the board’s search for a new one is filled. That article also told all the pertinent dates for finalization of the new hospital. The board hired a company known nationwide for moving hospitals into new facilities. The move is to begin in the early morning Friday, April 4. The goal is to open for business in the new hospital Monday, April 7. An emergency room will be available during the entire move. As reported, Board President Zack Odell presided over the meeting attended by Jim Parker, Bob Stark and Dan Lukins. Member Lori Schrock was connected by computer Skype. Equipment Purchases and More Business Under old business, Lab Director Gay Farney told the board they needed to upgrade their server, which is Orchard. She had researched it thoroughly and said Orchard communicates with the

hospital system Nextgen. Farney said this upgrade will keep the lab current and better. The board approved Farney’s suggestion and approved the Harvest Workstation (for Orchard) not to exceed $4,750. Farney said the lab needs a new LABSCO Sysmex 1000i hematology analyzer. She suggests a capital lease with LABSCO for $1,091 per month. She said this is $10 less per month than their current lease. The board approved that capital lease for the lab’s hematology analyzer at a cost not to exceed $1,100 per month for 60 months. This is pending legal review. In December the lab ran 3,637 tests. The total number of lab tests in 2013 was 37,667 from 2,593 sits, according to the hospital statistics report. At a special meeting of the board last Wednesday, they approved the following items recommended by Hospital Director of Nurses Heidi Courson at the January meeting: a refrigerator/freezer from Simpsons in Kiowa for $3299; six patient room recliners at $936 each; eight patient room bedside dressers at $220 each; a fluid warmer for the operating room at a cost of $2,495. These items are already included in the $8.5 million new hospital cost. Stark said a 1,500 gallon diesel purchase for the hospital generator is needed. The board approved staff to purchase it from whoever has the best price that day from: Kiowa’s O.K. Grain (co-op); Corner Stop in Kiowa; or the Burlington Co-op.

The board approved a document as presented regarding legality of the hospital ownership of the land where the new hospital sits from the highway to Seventh Street. The two providers receiving board approval under the Medical Staff Appointment agenda item were: Jenifer Cook, MD – ER/Clinic coverage and Mark Davis, MD – Radiology. Hospital and Manor December and End-of-Year Finances Hospital Chief Financial Officer Goodno presented statistics and financials for the hospital and manor for December. The total figures for entire 2013 were also included. “December was a busy month,” Goodno said. She said the clinic had 21 days of business in December and a “very busy month.” The clinic had 405 visits, averaging 19.3 patients per day at the clinic. The board praised Dr. Wilhelm and physician assistant Melissa Stroh for their hard work. Total hospital admissions were 18. Total days of acute and swingbed care were 31. Outpatient visits totaled 507 in December. The hospital’s operating statement for December showed total operating revenue of $227,070. Total operating expenses were $323,927. Net from operations showed a loss of $96,525. The addition of $77,759 assessed tax revenue, memorial income and other made total non-operating revenue $102,561, which had the hospital’s revenue in excess of expenses $6,036. For 2013, the hospital was in the black $705,949. Goodno was quick to See Hospital Page 24

point out that amount is largely due to money contributed from the Friends of the Hospital and Manor Foundation for the new hospital. The hospital’s net from operations in 2013 was a loss of $1,068,137. That’s before a total of non-operating revenue of $1,774.086 was added. Of that total, $933,108 was tax revenue; memorial income was $115,900; rental income and interest was $3,103; and miscellaneous. income/contributions were $721,975. In December the manor had a patient census of 23. Interim Manor Administrator Carla Dunigan said they had a possibility of getting two more residents in February. The manor’s operating statement for December showed total operating revenue of $128,663. Operating expenses were $153,689. That makes a net loss from operations of $25,026. The addition of $5,813 non-operating revenue curbed the loss to $19,213. For 2013, the operating statement shows the manor had a loss of $461,069. The loss in 2012 was $334,583. The combined balance sheet for the hospital and manor shows a loss of $244,881 as of the end of December 2013. At the January meeting, Goodno said current accounts receivable for the hospital are $675,000 and $50,000 for the manor. The board approved $47,000 of bad debts and all the statistics and financials as reported.

Waynoka 4-H and FFA Trophy Auction a success By Colton Budy, Waynoka FFA Reporter On Thursday evening, Jan. 23, the Waynoka 4-H and FFA held their Annual Trophy Auction. It was at the Waynoka Schools MultiPurpose Building and started at 6:30 p.m. Those attending enjoyed a BBQ meal catered by Larry and Linda Hutchison and desserts prepared by the parents of 4-H and FFA members. The live and silent auctions began after dinner with many items up for bid. The auctioneers who helped out for the evening were Ryan Redgate, Andy Ferguson, Charles Murrow and Ira Smith. The 4-H and FFA members helped by serving drinks, carrying plates and cleaning up. The auction raised around $42,000 that will go toward helping members who show animals in the Waynoka Livestock Show and other club activities. The Waynoka 4-H and FFA appreciate all the support from the community and surrounding areas.

Deputy breaks up party, arrests one

By Marione Martin A report of underage drinking in Carmen led to the arrest of one man. According to documents on file, Woods County Deputy Sheriff Blake Trekell was at the Carmen Jiffy Trip on Jan. 24 when he received the anonymous tip about a possible party with underage drinking. He went to the residence described as being two blocks north of the Carmen Bank on Central Street. When he arrived, he saw a large group of juveniles in the front yard of the residence. As he approached, he could smell the odor of marijuana. Juveniles began running into the house and out the back door. Trekell was able to chase down a few but later they ran away. While running

through the house, Trekell saw one juvenile male, age 16, lying on the couch who appeared to be intoxicated to the point of confusion and with no ability to balance. Since he was alone, Trekell was outnumbered and unable to detain all the individuals at the residence. He returned to the front of the house where there were about eight individuals, some juveniles and some adults, standing in the yard. He ordered them to lie down on their stomachs. One adult male, later identified as Levi Duncan, the main tenant of the residence, refused to comply and continued to talk on his phone and asked why he had to get on the ground. Trekell again ordered him on the ground, and he refused. So Trekell placed him on the ground and put him in

handcuffs. Later when Duncan’s mother talked to him in the presence of Trekell, Duncan said he didn’t get on the ground because he had been drinking and didn’t know how to do it. Several juveniles were released to parents and issued citations ranging from obstructing an officer to possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. Trekell requested Carmen first responders come to the scene to check on the juvenile on the couch. They released the juvenile, who was then released to parents. Duncan was arrested for obstructing an officer. A misdemeanor charge of obstructing an officer was filed Jan. 28 against Levi Colton Dnncan, 23, of Carmen in Alfalfa County court.

Beware of ring and run scam OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahomans need to beware. A scam from the past has reinvented itself and found new life. This scam is commonly referred to as a “ring and run” because victims receive calls on their cell phones from area code 473 that ring once and and then disconnects. The instinct it to call back – don’t. “If the call is important, the caller is going to leave a voice mail,” said Elaine Dodd, Oklahoma Bankers Association vice president-fraud. “A missed call without a voice message tends to be a wrong number. If it is a missed call from someone you know, their name and number should be in your phone already to identify the call. If it’s important, they’ll leave a message, continue to call or even text you.

“You should never return a call to a number you aren’t familiar with. If you are tempted to return the phone call, at least do an online search for the number before you call and see what you come up with.” According to the Better Business Bureau in Cleveland, Ohio, when the area code is 473, it appears the call is domestic but it is not – it is an international call connected to a paid international adult entertainment service, “chat” line or other premium service. When victims return the call, they are billed an international call fee of $19.95 in addition to per minute charges for the premium service, which can be $9 per minute or more. Area code 473 is connected to Grenada. Other area codes consumers should be aware of in conjunction to this scam are: 268 – Antigua or Barbuda 809 – Dominican Republic 876 – Jamaica 284 – British Virgin Islands 473 – Grenada 649 – Turks and Caicos

Broad coalition backs Keystone XL oil pipeline By Matthew Daly WASHINGTON (AP) — An unusual coalition of lawmakers from both parties, labor and business leaders, veterans groups and Canada’s ambassador to the United States joined forces Tuesday to push for quick approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Five Democrats joined Republicans at a Capitol news conference to urge President Barack Obama to approve the pipeline following a State Department report last week that raised no major environmental objections. The $7 billion pipeline would carry oil from tar sands

in western Canada to refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast. The project has lingered for more than five years and has become a symbol of the political debate over climate change. Canadian Ambassador Gary Doer also spoke at the news conference, along with labor union officials and a retired Navy admiral. A top oil industry lobbyist attended the event but did not speak. Environmental groups that oppose the pipeline have been making a lot of “noise,” Doer said, but polls show a majority of Americans favor the project. Pipeline opponents, including many Democratic lawmakers, say it would carry heavy oil that contributes to global warming. They also worry about a spill. Doer urged Obama to “choose blue-collar workers over Hollywood celebrities” and accept crude oil from Canada — the closest U.S ally — over

oil from Venezuela. Robert Redford and Daryl Hannah are among scores of celebrities who have spoken out against the pipeline. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said the time to build the pipeline “is now,” adding that pipelines are safer and more environmentally friendly than oil that is transported by trains or trucks. Keystone XL, proposed by Calgarybased TransCanada Corp., not only would create jobs and boost her state’s economy, it also would “connect two of the strongest allies in the world,” Landrieu said. “I would swap Canada for Venezuela any day of the week and twice on Sunday,” added Rep. John Barrow, D-Ga., another pipeline supporter. A report released Friday by the See Keystone Page 54

State Department cited no major environmental objections to the 1,179mile pipeline, which would carry oil through Montana and South Dakota to a hub in Nebraska, where it would connect with existing pipelines to get the oil to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast. Pipeline supporters say it will create thousands of jobs and move the U.S. toward North American energy independence. Foes say the pipeline would carry “dirty oil” that contributes to global warming. The State Department report says oil derived from tar sands in Alberta generates about 17 percent

more greenhouse gas emissions than traditional crude. But the report makes clear that other methods of transporting the oil — including rail, trucks and barges — would release more greenhouse gases than the pipeline. The news conference in support of the pipeline came as environmental activists held vigils throughout the country on Monday to protest the pipeline, including one outside the White House attended by about 250 people. Opponents also are scheduling “pipeline meet-ups” throughout February to encourage people to raise the issue with candidates in the 2014 elections. Joining Landrieu and Barrow at the Capitol event Tuesday were Democratic

Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Mark Pryor of Arkansas. Landrieu and Pryor face tough re-election fights this year in energy-producing states where the pipeline is popular and Obama is not. Republican Mitt Romney easily carried Louisiana and Arkansas in the 2012 presidential election. Landrieu, who is expected to become chairwoman of the Senate Energy Committee later this month, said she is “open to whatever needs to be done” to approve the pipeline, including use of the project as a bargaining chip with Republicans in upcoming talks over raising the federal debt limit. Rep. Lee Terry, R-Neb., said GOP House leaders have no intention of attaching the pipeline to any must-pass legislation before a 90-day comment period concludes in May.
