Charges against Alfalfa county clerk revealed

By Roger McKenzie Alfalfa County Clerk Bruce Martin is currently the subject of two sets of charges listed against him in Alfalfa County District Court. One of the charges—for falsification of records—is a felony. But it is lesser charges, which are labeled “causes”— for maladministration and oppression in office—which prompted the county’s commissioners to seek his “immediate removal as county clerk. The Accusation for Removal was filed against Martin in District Court on Sept. 27. It lists a number of The Alva Review-Courier / Newsgram is published Wednesday by Martin Broadcasting Corp. 620 Choctaw St. Alva, Oklahoma 73717 Lynn L.

Oklahoma Press Association

complaints under two categories: willful maladministration and oppression in office. Under willful maladministration, eight instances are listed. Seven instances of oppression in office are listed. One of the attorneys representing Martin, Clint A. Claypole, said that he believes this is a “politically motivated prosecution prompted by political disagreements between county officials. Asked who might be behind the attempt to kick Martin out as clerk, he said, “We’re not sure, but somebody wants Bruce Martin out of office.” The accusations, he declared, stem from Martin doing his job as county clerk trying to keep the county in compliance with the state auditor’s office. Most of the charges are either untrue or mischaracterized, he added. Claypole also called the executive session on Sept. 26 to discuss the dismissal of Martin a violation of the state’s Open Meeting Act. He noted that no accusations were discussed in open session. Between now and a scheduled Dec. 16 hearing, Martin’s attorneys will be taking depositions of the witnesses listed in the Accusation for Removal. At least two motions from Martin’s defense team

are expected to be part of the case. One is to call for the disqualification of the Alfalfa District Attorney’s office from the prosecution for two reasons—the office charged normally with being Martin’s appointed counsel in cases involving the country clerk and because District Attorney Hollis Thorpe is expected to be called as a witness in the case. The other motion is a call for dismissal of the case because the charges don’t rise to the level required by Oklahoma law to remove Martin and because the charges are untrue. Here are the alleged causes for the county to seek Martin’s dismissal as listed in the Accusation for Removal document. Some longer items have been abbreviated. Maladministration 1.

South Barber tuba player makes National FFA Band By Yvonne Miller Earning superior (I) ratings on his tuba solos since 7th grade, South Barber High School junior Lane Hess earned membership in the National FFA Band. Lane will play with the band at the 84th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis October 19-22. More than 54,000 are expected at the nation’s largest student convention. When the lights are dimmed and a hush descends upon the convention crowd, Lane will be a part of the 80 member band who brings inspiration to the event. For membership in the prestigious band, Lane had to get the recommendation of the State FFA Band director and his own director Jill Daughhetee. An audition tape was also required. He played his solo from last year entitled, “Bombastoso” which earned him I ratings at league, regional and state contests. He was selected among 225 applicants. Of his musical history, Lane said, “I always wanted to play the tuba – it’s always appealed to me.” He credits his sixth grade band teacher Jenny Colglazier “for making us practice every day.” He remembers those daily practice sheets parents had to sign. He had Mr. Teed before Mrs. Daughhetee whom he describes as “a really good band teacher.” As a junior high student, Lane made District Honor Band. He was selected for the Masonic All-State Marching Band who performed at the Shrine Bowl at Fort Hays State. Lane said he loves performing and said it “feels good when people compliment me.” He hopes his efforts will pay in the form of scholarships for college. He’s considering a career in petroleum engineering. Besides FFA and band, Lane is in the gifted and talented program and Scholar’s Bowl at SBHS. He also plays football and tennis.

Washington is Alva’s biggest school By Roger McKenzie Washington Early Childhood Center is now officially the largest school in the Alva Independent School District, with 237 students, replacing Alva High School, which has 234 students. The other schools in the district and their enrollments are: Longfellow Elementary School (137), Lincoln Elementary School (133), and Alva Middle School (193). The enrollment total announcement of 934 was part of the principals’ reports at Monday’s Alva Board of Education meeting. Superintendent Vickie Johnson’s financial report compared figures to date with those from a year ago. The district revenue figures were generally up from last year. Gross Production Revenue at $525,494.56 is up from $317,190.43 on a to-date basis. On a monthly basis, September gross production collections were about $75,000 over this time last year. State aid is down, however. To date, the district has received about $41,000 less in state aid and about $14,000 less in flex benefits from the state. Ad valorem taxes have yet to come in. The Oklahoma State School Boards Association (OSSBA) District 2 meeting will be held Oct. 27 in Waynoka. Johnson also noted that the bond project to fix the round window at the Alva Middle School is still waiting on specifications to be written. Principals were finishing up work on the district’s accreditation report. Homecoming activities at the high school and activities including homecoming parade participation and Hallow-

een activities were part of the principals’ reports from just about all the schools. Board members approved extra duties assignments with a correction of one typographical error. The assignments range from coaching to music to academic to yearbook and special education duties. Also included are vocational, concessions, and administrative duties such as insurance coordinator and Board of Education representative for negotiation. In all, 58 different people were approved for over $165,000 in extra duty assignments. The school year budget was approved. General Fund budget for 201112 totals $8,493,016.93. The Co-Op Fund budget for cooperative programs totaled $723.353/78. The Building Fund budget for the year totals $546,056.16. The Child Nutrition Fund budget totals $384,944.37. Bond Fund and Gift Fund/Senior Achievement totals were $66,349.74 and $50,577.65. Approved was the annual Gifted and Talented Plan. No changes other than date were made from a year ago. Also given the okay was an increase in the assistant band director’s salary from $10 to $11 per hour. Two employees requested to participate in the Sick Leave Sharing Program. Marlo Smith’s request was approved. Since on documentation had been received with Doris Marcus’ request, no action was taken on it. Board redistricting was approved. The boundaries of each of the districts were changed to even out the population within them to about 1,400 in each one. None of the changes affects the current

board members. At the request of Clyde Holcom, Jr., the board reduced his hours from eight hours per day to 6.5 hours effective Sept. 19. After an executive session, the board also terminated immediately the employment of Arthur C. Hawksford as a bus driver for the district. The board passed its consent agenda, which included minute, the treasurer and activity fund reports, activity fundraisers, inner account transfers, and child nutrition report.

Lynn Says

The difficulty of reaching enough customers in rural areas By Lynn L. Martin OK, this column is mainly to help understand the problems of advertising in a rural area. First, let’s clear up any prejudice against the word “advertising.” In this column the word advertising will mean communicating with people you need as clients, patrons or customers. Even a church bulletin mailed out is “advertising.” The church leadership is trying to communicate with its members the needs of the church and how the church can fulfill the needs of the members. Of course, the church also needs the revenue provided by the members to stay open. Most businesses in a rural area have to communicate (advertise) with a large portion of the skimpy population to do enough commerce to survive. Let’s do the math. First, you have to figure out how many customers per year you need to survive in business. One per day? Ten per day? Or one-hundred per day? Since I’m familiar with baby photography, let’s practice on that. I can figure out how many potential baby

photography customers there may be by looking at pre-k enrollment in the public schools. This year the figure jumped up to 92. I’ve observed that Alva has about the same number of kids in each grade, so it’s reasonable to assume about 90 babies will be born to Alva area parents this year. Since there are 52 weeks in a year, and if by fluke I was able to photograph 100% of the 90 babies in a year, that would be 1.7 photo sessions per week. However, I also know that a sizeable number of those infants are born to single parent families. In general, they are struggling to survive and a professional photo session is not in their budget. A quick search on Google shows that 35% fall into that category. So take away 35% of the potential customer because of money reasons and you’re down to about 60 possible infant customers. I would guess there are at least five photo studios claiming locations in Alva. So if the remaining 60 potential customers are split equally among five competitors that means each will photograph 12 per year . . . or about one per month. On the other hand, if the same five studios are located in Oklahoma City, and you do the same math, I think each would have a customer share of 2,000 kids (did a quick extrapolation in my head so may be inaccurate). So the bottom line is that with sufficient popula-

tion each studio would survive, but with Alva’s population, none would survive. So where does the advertising discussion belong in this. You can amplify the number of potential customers by extending your advertising reach outside your town. This helps add more people to your potential customer base. The Newsgram is designed to reach every possible person in three counties: Woods, Alfalfa and Barber counties. We know that almost every business in small population communities has this same problem . . . not quite enough local population, but if you can draw from 3040 miles, the population numbers jump 500%, and maybe you will survive. Next, you have to decide what media to use. Television ads would be nice but none of us can afford $3,000 spots, and because you’re covering the whole state, 99% of those viewers would be outside your trade territory and therefore wasted money. I was in the radio business for 30 years. I know that radio station executives in metro markets would click their heels and jump in the air if they could grab 10% of the listeners. I want more than 10%. Handbills pasted on store windows reach only those who walk the sidewalks. That’s not a big enough audience for me. Everyone thinks “social media” is the in thing. Well, I’ve spent $100 a month over the last 15 months on Facebook so my wedding photo studio name pops up to those in Kansas and Oklahoma whose See Says Page 22

Waynoka School Board hopes to open old gym By Lynn L. Martin The Waynoka Board of Education zipped through their agenda in about 25 minutes Monday night before adjourning to complete the meeting with a tour of the “old gym” downtown. Rick George said the facility has been mainly used for storage the last several years and the board members are thinking of letting Kids, Inc., use it for basketball each fall and winter. When asked the target date, George said, “Toward the end of this month.” There are about 50 band uniforms and 125 desks in storage right now. Board members are A. J. Ferguson, Rick George, Donnie Miller, Clint Olson and Mindy Zook. They approved the minutes of the regular and special board meetings without change. (Writer’s note - I saw for the first time a brilliant idea on minute keeping at the Waynoka School Board meeting. As Secretary Becky Pingelton typed the results of each action on her laptop computer, the document was projected in real-time on a wall so each person in the room could see what was being recorded about each discussion and each vote. This permits any board member to correct any statement or recorded vote error on the spot. No corrections were suggested during this meeting but it is a perfect way to make sure totally accurate minutes are recorded.) In other routine matters, approval was granted for the superintendent and/

or board members to attend the OSSBA District II meeting this month. Also, the stage was set for the superintendent and one or more board members to the attend the National School Board Association meeting in Boston in April 2012. School Election The Waynoka board voted to set the date of February 14, 2012, for the annual school election. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. In another vote, the board unanimously approved Jordan Taylor as groundskeeper and substitute bus driver. The principal was not present, so that agenda item was skipped. In the superintendent’s report, Peggy Constien said the gross production revenue has been up over $45,000 for the first three months. However ,she warned that each month the increase over the previous year is declining. She said, “So we need to be watching this income and be ready to adjust expenses. Right now, everything is on track slightly better than last year.” The district may have to come up with $32,000-35,000 if the legislature does not pick up the tab for the flexbenefits for employees. However, the superintendent seemed confident the legislature will help correct the problem this coming session. Cafeteria Survey In a report on the cafeteria, Constien said the students are doing a survey on food favorites. The fifth grade is studying

charts and graphs and will possibly make a presentation to the school board on the results. She said early results show the kids like taco pie, hamburgers, BBQ chicken, and chicken noodle soup. She commented that the elementary kids liked the goulash served that day, but the high school kids did not. She mentioned that a salad bar is always available. She warned the board that the USDA says Waynoka should be raising prices about 10% per year but she likes the fact the milk is still ten cents a carton. She also said the government did not like it that the cafeteria was preparing sufficient food for some kids to have seconds. She said, “We’re supposed to prepare plenty of food . . . but not for seconds. For a long time we’ve supplemented the nutrition fund from the general fund, but we may be forced by the government to address this.” The superintendent reported that the bus barn is not up to fire code. She said the main problem is no strobe lights. Also something about the alarm needs to be improved. She estimates the fix will cost around $1500.00.

ONE OKLAHOMA DEATH CONFIRMED FROM CANTALOUPE LISTERIA OUTBREAK The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) has now confirmed a total of six cases of listeriosis related to cantaloupe shipped by Jensen Farms from the Rocky Ford, CO, growing region. All six cases were hospitalized and one of these died. An additional four listeriosis cases are under investigation, and are suspected to be related to the nationwide outbreak. All of the Oklahoma cases are over the age of sixty. While particularly severe for the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems, state officials recommend that all Oklahomans avoid recalled Rocky Ford cantaloupe shipped by Jensen Farms. Jensen Farms is voluntarily recalling Rocky Ford Cantaloupe. The recalled cantaloupes were shipped from the Rocky Ford growing region of Colorado from July 29 through September 10 and are potentially linked to a multi-state outbreak of listeriosis. The recalled cantaloupes were distributed to at least 17 states with possible further distribution. Recommendations for consumers: Recalled cantaloupes may still be in grocery stores and in consumers' homes. · OSDH recommends that persons at high risk for listeriosis, including older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women, not eat cantaloupes shipped by Jensen Farms. A label on the cantaloupe will have the Jensen Farm brand. · Consumers who have cantaloupes in their homes can check the label or inquire at the store where they purchased it to determine if the fruit was marketed as coming from the Rocky Ford region of Colorado. · Cantaloupes marketed as coming from Jensen Farms should be disposed of in a closed plastic bag placed in a sealed trash can. This will prevent people or animals from eating them. People who are at high risk for listeriosis are people age 60 or older; those with weakened immune systems from transplants or certain chronic diseases, immunosuppressive therapies or medications; and pregnant women. Healthy adults under age 60 rarely develop this illness. The incubation period for listeriosis averages 3 weeks, but can be as long as 70 days. The symptoms associated with listeriosis depend on the person infected. Healthy adults and children typically will not develop a serious illness. The symptoms may include fever, chills, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Elderly persons or persons with weakened immune systems are at higher risk of developing severe disease due to listeriosis; these persons may develop meningitis and experience sudden fever, intense headache, nausea, vomiting, mental confusion, and coma. Listeriosis also can cause miscarriages and stillbirths. Individuals typically become infected after eating or drinking contaminated foods. Outbreaks of listeriosis have been linked to drinking unpasteurized “raw” milk and soft cheeses, contaminated produce, and ready-to-eat deli type meats or cold cuts. Individuals can decrease their risk of Listeria infection by avoiding deli meats unless reheated to an internal temperature of 165 F, refrigerated pâté or meat spreads, refrigerated smoked seafood, and soft cheeses such as queso fresco and brie unless they are made with pasteurized milk. Consumers and food preparers should wash their hands before and after handling any melon. The surface of melons such as cantaloupes should be washed and dried with a clean cloth or paper towel before cutting. Cut melon should be promptly refrigerated at less than 41 F / 5 C (32-34 F is optimal for cut melon storage.) Cut melons left at room temperature for more than four hours should be discarded. 28 may not yet have been reported. All illnesses began on or after Aug. 4. In all cases for which medical records are available, the patient was hospitalized. Listeriosis, caused by Listeria monocytogenes bacteria, can cause lethal or disabling encephalitis and meningitis, usually in older people or those with weakened immune systems. Listeria can also cause fatal fetal infection in pregnant women. Four distinct strains of listeria are causing the current outbreak. Strains linked to the outbreak have been cultured from Jensen Farms’ Rocky Ford brand cantaloupe from a Denver-area store and from equipment and cantaloupe at the Jensen Farms packing plant. Four distinct strains of listeria are causing the current outbreak. Strains linked to the outbreak have been cultured from Jensen Farms Rocky Ford Brand Cantaloupes. No other farms, even in the Colorado’s Rocky Ford growing region, have been linked to the

outbreak. Jensen Farms has recalled all cantaloupes shipped from July 29 through September 10 to at least 17 states. Further distribution may have occurred. The whole cantaloupes may have either of two stickers: “A green and white sticker” that reads: Product of USA - Frontera Produce - Colorado Fresh - Rocky Ford Cantaloupe “A gray yellow and green sticker” that reads Jensen Farmes - Sweet Rocky Fords If you encounter unlabeled cantaloupes, you should ask your grocer where it came from. If you have one of the recalled cantaloupes, be sure to dispose of it in a closed plastic bag in a sealed trash can to prevent people or animals from eating it.. If you’ve eaten some of a recalled cantaloupe and have not become sick, do not assume the cantaloupe is safe. Dispose of it immediately. The FDA warns people not to try to wash bacteria from the recalled cantaloupes, as both the inside and outside of the melons may be contaminated. Listeria monocytogenes are commonly found in the soil, where they eat dead plant matter. When consumed, the bacteria change their nature and become able to enter cells. Unless controlled by the immune system, they can escape the gut and enter the bloodstream. Listeriosis symptoms Although listeria is a food-borne illness, disease with symptoms usually means the bacteria have escaped the digestive tract and are spreading throughout the body. Listeriosis often results in fatal meningitis or encephalitis. Listeriosis usually begins with diarrhea or other intestinal symptoms. Patients soon develop fever and muscle aches. What happens next depends on a person’s risk factors: •While pregnant woman usually get a mild flu-like illness, listeria infection can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or fatal infection of the newborn. •Other people at high risk may develop a headache, stiff neck, mental confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions. Foods typically linked to listeriosis are deli meats, hot dogs, and soft cheeses made with unpasteurized milk. Produce is less often linked to outbreaks, although listeria occurs in soil and water. Listeria is killed by cooking, but can grow and multiply in refrigerators. How to avoid Listeria As contaminated cantaloupes may still be in grocery stores or in people’s homes, the CDC has issued this advice: •People at high risk for listeriosis, including older adults, people with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women, should not eat cantaloupes marketed as coming from the Rocky Ford Region of Colorado. •People who have cantaloupes in their homes can check the label or inquire at the store where they purchased it to determine if the fruit was marketed as coming from the Rocky Ford region of Colorado. •Listeriosis primarily affects older adults, people with weakened immune systems, pregnant women, and newborns. People who think they might have become ill from eating contaminated cantaloupes should consult their doctor immediately. •Cantaloupes marketed as coming from the Rocky Ford region should be disposed of in a closed plastic bag placed in a sealed trash can. This will prevent people or animals from eating them. As other foods besides cantaloupes can carry listeria, the CDC recommends these general steps to avoid listeriosis. •Rinse raw produce, such as fruits and vegetables, thoroughly under running tap water before eating. Dry the produce with a clean cloth or paper towel before cutting it up.. •Thoroughly cook raw meat and poultry. •Heat hot dogs, deli meats and cold cuts until they are steaming hot just before serving. •Do not drink raw (unpasteurized) milk and do not eat fresh soft cheeses that have unpasteurized milk in them, especially Mexican-style cheeses like queso fresco.. •Be sure that your refrigerator is at or below 40 degrees F and your freezer is at or below 0 degrees F by using a refrigerator thermometer.

She also worked as Fair Superintendent for many years.

Kiowa District Hospital names new CFO Foundation gets line of credit for capital campaign By Yvonne Miller Janell Goodno sat at the Kiowa District Hospital Board Meeting Thursday night as the new Chief Financial Officer. She doesn’t officially begin her role until October 31. Janell is originally from Kiowa, a 1992 SBHS graduate, and the daughter of Paul and Yvonne Harbaugh. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business from NWOSU. She and her husband Justin and family currently reside at Stafford where she is CFO of the Stafford County Hospital. The Goodno’s son Colby is a college freshman in Texas; their daughter Ciera will join the junior class at SBHS. They have 11 week-old twins Janda and Jancey. They are searching for a home in Kiowa. Board members attending the meeting were: Zack Odell, Robert Armbruster, Lori Schrock and Dan Lukins. Robert Stark was absent. Hospital/Manor CEO Aldeen “Van” Vandeveer also sat at the table. Hospital Foundation to Start Capital Campaign Soon The Foundation and hospital board reached an agreement. The hospital board agreed to give the Foundation up to a $50,000 line of credit. This is to give the Foundation an operating budget. Board member Lori Schrock recused herself from the vote as she also serves on the Foundation. Foundation President Judy Schrock said this line of credit allows the Foundation to get their capital campaign underway soon. This is to raise money for the GAP funding needed to build a new hospital. The Barber County Commissioners already approved $4 million bonds to pay for hospital improvements. The GAP funding will make up the estimated $2.5 million more needed to complete building the new hospital on district-owned land on the south end of Kiowa beside Highway 8 and the soccer field. Regarding the building project, Vandeveer apprised board members that a check for $72,850 was going to pay an invoice to MW Builders for Phase I Planning of the hospital construction project.

Increased Tax Revenue Helps Hospital Finances Increased tax revenues across Barber County reflect in the financial bottom line of the hospital. Year-todate the assessed district tax (general) is $432,913.36. Same time last year the tax money was $185,195.04. The hospital and clinic saw slightly increased business in August. Total outpatient visits were 525 over 462 in July. Clinic visits totaled 399, an increase over 334 in July. Total hospital admissions were 14, down one from July. This resulted in 46 days of swingbed and acute care. In August Net Patient Revenue increased to $279,067.28 from $242,183.24 the previous month. Total Operating Expenses were $286,520.90 – resulting in a loss from operations of $4,987.10. The addition of mainly tax revenue totaling $61,750,98 gives a gain of $56,763.88. The hospital’s gain Yearto-date is $348,490.66. Total cash in all funds was $990,201.22 at the end of August. Hospital’s total assets were $2,392,147.99. Despite that encouraging news, the hospital’s Accounts Receivable totaled $1,040,190.60 as of August 31. After allowance for bad debts and contractual adjustments, total Net Patient Accounts Receivable is $523,190.60. Manor Finances The resident census at the manor was 23 in August and was 24 last Thursday. In August net patient revenue was $114,333.48, down about $4,000 from July. Total operating expenses were $146,641.82. This made for a loss of $32,308.24. The addition of $5,001.72 tax revenue reduced the loss

to $27,306.52. Human Resources Director Angela Whitely said they hired new CNAs at the manor and “are stepping up dietary.” Other improvements were mentioned such as some positive changes to the QA program and care plans for residents. Search for Electronic Medical Records The staff and board continue to look for affordable vendors to supply Electronic Medical Records as federally required in the near future. Jim Waldron with NextGen addressed the board with a proposal from his company with offices in Texas, Pennsylvania and California. He said they offer a certified program with a money back guarantee. Waldron explained their offer in detail. He said the cost is $590,000 for a “total solution.” That includes a hospital and clinic info system, implementation, software, etc. Waldron reminded that government stimulus money is available to help with the cost for EMR. He said over 2000 hospitals applied for the stimulus money. He said the average Critical Access Hospital (which Kiowa is) gets an average of $500,000 for this project. The board took no action on NextGen’s offer. They want to gather more information. More Hospital Business Board discussed upgrades for radiology equipment, but took no action. Nurse Practitioner Patty McNamar spoke briefly about a special project she’s doing. It regards well-baby checks for children zero to age three. The board met in executive session, approving the monthly RM/QA report upon return to open session before adjournment.

Says

status is “engaged” or in a “relationship.” I’ve been very disappointed in this $1,500 expenditure. I do not believe I’ve booked a single wedding from this. Local newspaper is pretty good. Since people have to pay a subscription, a newspaper is fortunate to reach about 40% of their community. The nice thing is if these people have enough money to subscribe, that means they probably have money to spend for your product. So an ad in a local newspaper is reaching people who can afford to act. I’m not whining here. Virtually ev-

ery small business owner faces the same problem. It is simply a problem to be solved. I find that the Newsgram’s idea of trying to be in the hands of 100% of the people in the three-county area is thunder and lightning compared to any other choice. Sure, not 100% will read the product even if it is sent to their mailbox or delivered to their yard, but a very high percentage will. If you want a feel for this, the next time we have press trouble and we’re late in getting the Newsgram out, we’ll invite to come and help

answer the phone at the newspaper office which will be clogged for three or four hours with people wanting to know where their Newsgram is. Several publishers have called me over the years wanting to know the “secret” of the Newsgram so they can duplicate it in their part of the state. I tell them the main thing is it has to have “something interesting” (school news, court news, sports) that apply to each town in their circulation area so they will bother to open it. Then follow through on total distribution. Lots of publishers start “shoppers” and distribute them by leaving them in convenience stores or restaurants. That’s not going to work. You gotta have a 100% goal of all the people in a sparsely populated rural area.

Martin still on the job as Alfalfa County Clerk By Roger McKenzie Alfalfa County Clerk Bruce Martin, after almost 19 years on the job, is still working as the county clerk despite the county commissioners’ vote at their meeting on Sept. 26 calling for his “immediate” suspension with pay. He will remain on the job after Judge Dean Linder ruled in a hearing on Sept. 28 that all motions were stayed to protect

From Page 2

Martin’s constitutional rights. Martin said he was given less than 24 hours notice of his hearing on Sept. 28. The hearing came at 11 a.m. and the county clerk received notification the day before at 4:15 p.m. He did manage to contact his attorney’s office and Clint Claypole was sent to represent Martin at the hearing. According to Claypole, Judge Linder announced in the courtroom that Bruce

Martin “is and will continue to be the duly elected clerk of Alfalfa County until such time as he is removed or suspended” by a judicial officer. Judge Linder set a hearing date of Friday, Dec. 16, at 10 a.m. before Garfield County Judge Dennis Hladik. Judge Linder also appointed Judge Hladik to replace Judge Tim Haworth of Fairview in another case pending against Martin.

Charges

for medically needed construction and repairs. The additional time and expense to Freedom West caused Alfalfa County citizens to lose out on these much needed grants. 2. Refusing to prepare purchase orders on various county items causing undue delays, including but not limited to placing required tires on an inoperable Goltry fire truck. 3. By refusing to cooperate and file proper paperwork for the Department of Labor in reference to work-related injuries and illnesses as required by law. He lied to representative Bill Hanks as to the ability to comply by submitting said report online. He said he didn’t have the capability when he in fact did. 4. Refusing to attest and certify

official county documents in a timely manner. 5. Refusing to place items on the Board of County Commissioners’ agenda when requested to do so. 6. Refusing to pay county officials pay raises according to budget requiring a special meeting. 7. Refusing to cooperate with vendors in providing timely information and purchase order numbers. 8. Refusing to timely fund various offices’ operational accounts by not funding the total budgeted amount. In addition, the document lists Martin as deliberately and intentionally tearing down a Special Public Hearing notice for CDBG Community Revitalization Application changing the location from the county clerk’s office to the civic room in the courthouse. Oppression in Office 1. By the continuing badgering and belittling of female county officers including the former county election board officer, the county assessor,

country treasurer, and other courthouse employees. 2. By referring to the county commissioners’ secretary as a “Thing.” 3. By repeatedly harassing the cleaning custodian with degrading comments, following her around the courthouse and yelling at her in public. 4. By blocking the bathrooms, denying vendors the ability to install toilet paper dispensers. 5. By verbal abuse to other county employees, including telling one he should not have been hired because he was a drug addict. 6. By continually changing and altering office procedures, increasing difficulty for county officers and employees to obtain purchase orders, payroll items or any type of claims needed. 7. By the continued abuse of his authority by questioning county officers and their employees in every aspect of the job, resulting in a call being made to the state auditor.

Kiowa’s Wenzel Brothers bring home Burnout trophy ‘Old Red’ posts sixth win in eight tries

FIRST BURN -- Stan Wenzel sends up dual plumes of smoke in his first run at Saturday night’s burnout contest at the Big Cruise and Car Show. He won the burnoff and the trophy for the sixth time in eight years. Photo by Jim Stout

By Jim Stout Kiowa’s Stan Wenzel made a risky dedication for his performance in the Burnout Contest a week ago Saturday night at Alva’s Big Cruise and Car Show. “I’m dedicating this to two people,” Wenzel said before the event, “to my mother who died in August and to Stan Holt who’s fighting intestinal cancer.” Holt painted the signs on the side of the Wenzel Brothers Camaro. His son, John, works at BJCC in Alva. [Holt passed away five days later on Sept. 22. – Ed.] That dedication made losing “not an option,” so he won – the sixth time the Wenzel Brothers Repair ’73 Camaro “Old Red” brought in the trophy. Old Red won in 2004, 05, 06, 07, 08, placed second in 09 and was a top contender last year. This year’s first sensational burnout sent two plumes rising from the back tires of “Old Red” and left him in a tie for first. A runoff, or is it burnoff, with a giant cloud clinched the trophy for Stan and his brother, David, to climax the annual event. Old Red had already earned a trophy earlier in the day, posting 483.9 horsepower in the Car Show’s popular Chassis Dyno contest to place third, only a tenth of a horsepower behind Dave Coffin’s 484.0 hp in a 2003 Ford Mustang Cobra (Yellow). First in the Dyno went to Alva’s Gerald Benson with 538 hp in another Mustang Cobra, a 2010, (Red). Both the competitors that beat Old Red were late-model, hi-tech units priced above $60,000, according to auto enthusiasts magazines. Old Red: priceless! At left: TROPHY QUEENS present the top prize in Saturday night’s Burnout Contest to the Wenzel Brothers, David (left) and Stan. Miss Cruise Cali Crissup and Junior Miss Cruise Lanie Stewart congratulate them. Photo by Jim Stout

Worthington has vision as South Barber’s new vo-ag teacher

By Yvonne Miller Raised in 4-H and FFA, Amanda Worthington was the kind of young girl who went with her dad to the field or to help with livestock the minute she got home from school. It’s no wonder her career path eventually led to becoming a vo-ag teacher and FFA Advisor as she is at South Barber High School in Kiowa, Kan., beginning this fall. “I want to restore the program to how Fred (Gillig, longtime teacher now principal) had it – at least try,” Worthington said. The Illinois native said when she graduated from high school and the Joliet Junior College, she realized, “The world didn’t end at the Illinois State line.” Of branching out of her comfort zone, she said, “It was the best decision I ever made.” She traveled to Stillwater where she graduated from OSU with an ag/economics degree. She remains a huge OSU Cowboys fan. Later Worthington earned a master’s in curriculum instruction in agriculture education at Kansas State University. She lived in Garden City, Kan., where she taught agronomy and ag business instruction – including range management, crops, fertilizer, animal feeds and nutrition and computerized farm and ranch records. Living in that packing plant hub of western Kansas, to enhance their learning she took students to get experience on the kill floor. Of that experience she said, “Being on the outside looking in is not the same.” She said the many nationalities of employees working together at the packing plants is interesting to watch. Although there is some violence in the community among the many races, she said they appear to work together for safety and

security purposes in the packing plants. “I loved my job and the people I worked with – but living in Garden City . . . not so much,” she said. Her next stop was Hutchinson for training and teaching “until the economy tanked.” She took advantage of the opportunity to return to KSU where she earned 30 post-masters hours. Now at SBHS, Worthington said that raised in a farm family taught her “life skills.” “Kids need that,” she said, “for a strong work ethic.” “I want to give kids tools to use later in life.” She said 4-H and FFA help give students those See Worthington Page 20

South Barber girls donate time and send gift to Africa By Yvonne Miller Who would ever think when a girl painted her nails with sparkly nail polish, it would prompt a mission project? Many teens work in the summer. Others just relax and have fun. Two friends found time to hold down jobs, have some fun and help a class of second graders across the globe. Micaela Kirkwood of Hardtner and Mikala Gillig of Kiowa are those girls and juniors at South Barber High School. Micaela’s parents are Cody and Elizabeth Kirkwood, and Elizabeth is minister of the Hardtner United Methodist Church. Mikala’s parents are Mick and Robbie Gillig who attend the Southern Baptist Church in Kiowa. It all started in an elevator on the Oklahoma Christian University campus in Oklahoma City when Micaela and her mother were at OCU attending an Oklahoma Methodist Church Confer-

Brighton Trunk Show

ence. An African woman who was touring with a choir from her country and performing at the conference was in the elevator. She was intrigued with Micaela’s sparkly nail polish. This struck up a conversation between her and the Kirkwoods, and they’ve remained friends four years now, Elizabeth said. They met at events again in Fairview and Duncan. The African woman is Elaine Elizabeth Sauls from Johannesburg, Africa. In her twenties, Elaine teaches 43 2nd grade students at the Gauteng Department of Education. Elizabeth described her African friend as “a very sweet spirit with a great personality.” Elizabeth said Elaine told her the huge city has so many people that “classrooms are overwhelmed.” The teacher said they don’t have near enough supplies. Micaela and Mikala decided to take action to help. All summer they spent hours creating tie-dye t-shirts that they sold to locals for 4th of July and beyond.

October 18th • 10-6pm

South Barber juniors Mikala Gillig and Micaela Kirkwood prepare items to send a teacher and her students in Africa. The girls made and sold t-shirts to raise funds for their own unique mission project.

They raised near $900. After taking out expenses, the girls said they purchased “cool stuff for Miss Saul’s students” including games, bubbles, play dough, puzzles and more and shipped it. Micaela said the project was special to her because she actually knows Miss Sauls. Also, she knows the items she and Mikala worked to raise money to purchase and handpick will go directly to Miss Sauls’ students. When told of the gift shipped her way, “Miss Saul was overwhelmed and told me this is going to be such a blessing for her kids,” Elizabeth said. “She loves God and gives Him all the glory. She’s grateful for everything.”

“Good teaching is an artform. I like to teach,” she said. As she settled in to SBHS, Worthington said, “Mr. Gillig and Mrs. (Melva) Armbruster were really helpful. “There’s lots of nice people here.” One of her favorite activities in high school was barrel racing. “I rodeoed a lot in high school,” Worthington said. Eventually she’d like to move her horses Robbie and Tuffy here. She listed her outside interest as “ponies and family.” She has a younger brother and said her family is “very close.” She told how her cousins gathered from all over the country to celebrate their “Me Maw’s” 80th birthday. Discussing her “love of agriculture,” Worthington said, “It is the backbone of the nation.”
