Holder Home Total Loss after Early Morning Fire

Fire alarms sounded in Allen Tuesday afternoon, July 31st and Ada’s Fire Department responded to the call at 405 N. Cleveland, the home of Danny and Freta Holder. The fire was quickly extinguished. A second call to the Holder home came in to the Allen department at 1:15 a.m. when the family, staying in their camper due to the smoke smell in the house, awoke to see the glow of another fire. Allen VFD responded with two trucks and five firefighters. They also called again for assistance from Ada. Ada responded to the call that came in at 1:46 a.m. by sending their Engine #8 with three men, followed by a chase vehicle with a fourth man. Unfortunately the house was fully engulfed when the trucks arrived. Preliminary reports from the Ada Fire Department showed that the fire rekindled in a bedroom. Dollar loss was estimated at $150,000 for the structure with an additional $30,000 content loss. Cause of the fire is undetermined at this time, pending investigation.

C ountry Comments by Bill Robinson, Publisher

I have a sister-in-law that takes a lot of good-natured kidding about her height (or lack of it). Award winning author Patsy Clairmont understands how my sister-in-law feels and writes the following . . . I can identify with Zacchaeus in that I have a difficult time finding a place high enough to let me see a parade. Visibility is limited when you’re five feet tall. I’ve spent a lifetime on my tiptoes, calling up to others, “What’s going on?� I know I’m supposed to take comfort in the saying “dynamite comes in small packages.� But I don’t want to blow up; I want to grow up. Sitting tall is also a challenge because invariably, a sevenfoot-two-inch fellow will plant himself in front of me at church. I then have the joy of staring for the next hour a the seams in his shirt and his nappy neck. It’s like trying to watch a ball game through a billboard. Hugging is often a strain as we shorties have to reach past our stretching points to squeeze a neck. It’s such a rumpling experience and requires readjusting everything from hat to hose. As a speaker, I frequently find myself peeking over lecterns in my attempt to spot the audience. It’s difficult to retain the interest of people when their view consists of your forehead and eyebrows. I have stood on many creative booster stools so I could see and be seen. At one retreat, the kitchen workers brought me a box of

canned juice to sand on. It worked fine until my high heel poked between two cans and I jerked sharply backward. I grabbed the lectern, catching myself just before doing a topsy-turvy somersault. My disheveled appearance resulting from my stage aerobics made me look juiced. I have perched on many piano benches to speak. Because they’re pieces of furniture, I always remove my shoes before stepping up. Smooth nylons on shiny=finished wood equals slick chick in action. It’s like trying to speak on ice skates – possible but risky. To elevate me enough to be seen at one church meeting, the staff quickly piled up two stacks of hymnals, five deep. As I turned to look at my audience from one side of the auditorium to the other, the books would swivel. At one point the right-foot stack headed east while the left-foot stack headed west. Those shifting stilts kept me divided in my concentration, as I was concerned I would leave with a split personality. I’ve stood on milk crates, suitcases, tables and kiddie stools. Once I was precariously placed on a wooden box whose weight limit I obviously exceeded. It creaked threateningly throughout my presentation then, as I closed in prayer, a soloist began to sing, and I cautiously stepped down. Relieved that I hadn’t burst the boards, I

walked down the platform steps to take a seat. At the last step, my heel caught in the microphone cords and I crash-landed in the front row as the singer was belt-

ing out “Amazing Grace.� I obviously was not Grace, although in a discussion later, we thought it was amazing I could survive my teeter-totter

Country Comments platform and then splat when I arrived on solid ground. I t’s difficult to be taken seriously when you’re sixty inches short. People have a habit of referring to shorties as “cute.� “Cute� is what you call a toddler, a house without a future, or the runt of the litter. I tried to increase the presentation of my stature by wearing tall clothes. But more than once, while walking up the front steps in sanctuaries, my heel slid into the hem of my long skirt, toppling me across the altar, where I looked like some sort of short sacrifice. I shortened my skirts and added shoulder pads to my jackets in an effort to give an illusion of tallness without tripping myself. T hen one time I was in Washington, and when I was introduced in Washington, I grabbed my suit jacket and slid into it as I headed for the stage. I had been speaking for about fifteen minutes when I turned my head to one side and noticed that my left shoulder was four inches higher than my right. Evidently the pad, rather than conforming to the shape of my shoulder, perched on it. Up to that point, I was the only one in the auditorium who hadn’t noticed. I was

Local poet Larry Maxwell recently shared this poem with us about Growing Up in Gerty . . .

Growing Up

I miss the creak of the old screen door The pitter-patter of feet across a linoleum floor Mom in the kitchen and the rattle of pans Dad milking the cow with calloused hands I miss the smell of breakfast on the open flame stove Visiting our friends Erve and Pet Grove I miss the old house we once lived in The garden, the barn, the ol’ pig pen I miss the solitude of our little school and town The exciting graduations with diploma cap and gown I miss the ice-cream parties my family once had And growing up in Gerty when just a small lad

speaking on being dysfunctional and suggested that this perched pad was proof of my expertise in the subject. When I finished speaking, the mistress of ceremonies approached the steps with the back of her dress tucked into her panty hose. That took a lot of pressure off me. Another time, I was sharing the stage with a statuesque and elegant friend who, as I was speaking, noticed that my mega shoulder pad has slid off my shoulder and into my blouse. She reached in through my neckline and fished down my back in her attempt to retrieve it. I was stunned but continued to speak as though I didn’t notice she was shoulder-deep into my clothing. Well, I lost the audience as everyone became hysterical watching her catch my illusive inches and pat them securely back into place. I wish my height were my only struggle with smallness. Unfortunately, I’m also shortsighted in my faith. I’m one of those “if I can see it, then I can believe it� people. Z acchaeus was a small man who shinnied up a sycamore tree to give himself a boost. To that extent, I can identify. But his next move made the difference for him in a way lengthened robes or mountainous shoulder pads under his togas never could. He inched out on a limb to glimpse the Savior. He risked the shaky-limb experience of faith and responded to the Lord’s invitation, not only to come down, but also to grow up. That day he stepped down from his own efforts to see and be seen and stepped up to the call of the Lord. Zacchaeus still lacked inches, but he gained insight and walked away a giant of a man. Faith is a believe-it-first proposition, with no promise that I’ll get to “see it� regard-

less of how many boxes I climb. That’s scary – like going out on a limb, huh, Zac? —CC— Many of us have had family members that suffered from dementia. It is a terrible thing for not only the one that has it but also for the family members to go thru. T here is a recent report that says just getting out of the house is enough to cut in half your odds of developing Alzheimer’s disease. That’s the heartening conclusion of researchers at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center after they tracked a group of more than 1,000 initially healthy seniors over five years. They found that those who participated in social activities – like lunching with friends, volunteering, or going to church – were 50 percent less likely to develop signs of dementia; the most outgoing seniors reduced their risk by 75 percent. While linked to cognitive decline, scientists hadn’t been sure whether that was just because memory loss makes seniors feel less like going out. Study author Bryan James

Threads of Life THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, AUGUST 2, 2012 - PAGE 4

by Cleo Emerson LeVally

The trouble with having a place for everything is that it always gets filled up with everything else. That describes my work area. I have a desk beside my computer that was placed there to hold files with ideas for my column. Today I tried to put it in order and found one file with many notes. That desk must be straightened out and this week these notes are being tossed. I am listing the information on a few of these notes and then they are going in the wastebasket. Or maybe in another file. Here goes: The quickest way to get back on your feet is to get down on your knees. Be sure to beat eggs with

• This and That •

a wire whisk. It doesn’t help the eggs any but it makes you look like you know what you re doing. D o n ’ t m e e t t r o u b l e halfway. Let it travel the full distance. Something usually happens to it before it arrives. R ead all ads carefully. What the big black type giveth, the spidery type may taketh away. Always tell your troubles to people who don’t like you. They are the ones who want to hear them. A lawyer is a guy who will read a 10,000-word document and then call it a brief. M aybe you cannot buy happiness, but these days you can certainly charge it.

Service Held for John Battershell

Middle Age is the awkward period when Father Time catches up with Mother Nature There is one reliable rule for estimating the cost of living—take your income and add ten percent to it. W hen the floor nurse answered the phone at the

hospital, a voice on the other end asked, ‘Can you tell me how Mr. Donovan is getting along?’ ‘He’s doing splendidly. I believe he’ll be going home tomorrow. Who shall I say called?’ The answer came, ‘This is Donovan. The doctors won’t tell me a thing.’

A n officer stopped the woman driver whose dog was beside her. ‘Does your dog have a license?’ he inquired.’ No, why should he? I do all the driving,’ she replied. W hat is the difference between results and consequences? Results are what you expect and consequences are what you get.

Pharmacist’s View One writer said, “Republicans don’t go to NAACP conventions to win votes any more than Christians went to the Coliseum to convert the Lions.” I think Romney went before the NAACP conventioneers so he could get booed — not convert the audience. This podium also gave him a place to attack teacher unions. Romney basically told the group that they couldn’t have it both ways — talking up education reform, while promoting the same groups that are blocking reform. Romney said teacher unions are the biggest obstacle in our society to quality education. Romney invited and challenged the NAACP group to opt for real education reform as a way to achieve success for black society. But Romney was wasting his breath. Republicans lost the black vote

back in the days of Hoover and they won’t be back for Romney. Ditto for the Jewish and Hispanic vote as expectations for a Romney win continue to fade. Why? Obama can count on the black, Hispanic and the Jewish vote to go for him no matter what he does or what he might say. Another ace for him is the mainstream press. I was amazed this morning watching The Today Show. If you pay attention to them you would think Obama is a cross between Abraham Lincoln, the Lord and George Washington — a savior of the common person while Romney is a cross between the devil and Adolph Hitler. The love of Obama on NBC was almost erotic. Of course, some soothsayers think the democrats are digging themselves into a hole with their love of the unions — that it will back-

fire. Conservative democrats (such as me) become more and more detached as we wait for our party to return from the left back to center. There are a lot of defections here in Oklahoma as more and more Democrats switch to independent status or move over to the Republican Party. Upscale middleclass black voters and Hispanics are also drifting away from the party — but very few. Meanwhile, the Carters, Clintons and of course the Obamas have shown a marked favoritism toward the PLO and other Arab political/terrorist groups whose main stated policy is to kill every Jew that is still alive. So how much longer do you suppose we democrats will be able to count on the Jewish vote? We’ve done everything in the world to run ‘em off. What about other “govern-

tized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” The visitors continued, “We believe that we are saved when we believe and do not need to be baptized.” Are we saved by simply doing what we believe or must we do what is commanded in God’s word? It seems that a lot of people think that right and wrong (truth and error) are determined by what they believe. For example, it seems that many people do not believe it is necessary to be a member of the Lord’s church and therefore because that is what they believe, they think God is pleased! Also, it seems that many believe it is alright in God’s sight to divorce one’s marriage partner for a multitude of reasons and therefore because that is what they believe, God approves of divorce

for any cause! (See Matt. 19:3-10) Are we saved by what we believe? Is right and wrong determined by what we mortals think? Of course not! However, to hear some people talk, you would think that it is! You hear them say, “I believe …. this or that” or “I think … this or that.” The Apostle Paul wrote that the wisdom of this world is foolish with God and that “the world through wisdom did not know God.” (1 Cor 1:20-21) It is the word of God by which we will be judged and therefore we must humble ourselves in obedience to His word and forget about “what seems right” to us or “what we believe.” “The humble He teaches His way.” (Psalms 25:9)

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ As some visitors to the church were leaving, they told the preacher, “We’ll not be back because we do not believe it is necessary to be baptized.” The preacher had encouraged people to be baptized by quoting the words of Jesus from Mark 16:15-16, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is bap-

ment dependent” citizens? Will there be enough of these “pocketbook” voters to cancel out the votes of taxpaying people? And as more black voters continue to move up the economic ladder into the middle class (and supposedly into the arms of the republicans) will it counter-balance the food-stamp crowd? And of course, the big question: What happens in years ahead if the government becomes unable to keep its many commitments to social security and welfare? It could get very ugly and the political dynamics

from such a condition are unknown. Meanwhile, my democratic registration card rests uneasy in my billfold as I still can’t make myself go over to the Republicans. Perhaps it was that Hoover guy or maybe I’m just lazy. Whatever, i hope you enjoy the last few weeks of summer. School starts soon and that means football — a whole lot better game than politics.

Bargains on the Sidewalk in Ada Friday & Saturday

The annual Ada Citywide Sidewalk Sale will be held this Friday and Saturday, August 3rd and 4th. The Ada Retail Committee voted earlier this year to move the event to the first weekend in August to coincide with Oklahoma’s Tax Free Weekend. The Tax Free shopping will cover back-to-school items such as clothing and shoes. Merchants in Downtown Ada, North Hills, Arlington Center and South Ridge, as well as several on Mississippi, will be participating in the two day sale. The event was extended back to two days this year to allow shoppers more opportunity to take advantage of the sales. Savings of up to 75% off are being offered on clearance items as well as selections of new fall items. In addition to the shopping experience, school supplies will be given away at the Agri Plex in the 4th annual give-away sponsored by the Legacy Church of Ada, and the local American Legion will be sponsoring a Kids’ Day, complete with bounce houses and games, in the north parking lot at Wal Mart. Merchants will be observing their regular hours on Friday but have set opening times up for Saturday shoppers. Most downtown stores will be opening for business at 8:00 am on Saturday while the outlying shopping centers (North Hills, Arlington and South Ridge) will be opening at 9:00 am. There are exceptions to those times so consult your favorite store’s ad to be sure you’re among the first to check out the bargains available.

Chickasaw Nation opens Sovereign Pharmacy & Fine Gifts in Ada

New pharmacy and clinic opens services to general public, features luxurious gift shop

Ada, Okla. – Sovereign Pharmacy & Fine Gifts and Sovereign Family Practice Clinic are both now open to the general public. The pharmacy and gift store is situated inside Sovereign Family Practice Clinic, 1007 North Country Club Road in Ada. The clinic opened in July 2011 and initially provided medical care to employees of the Chickasaw Nation. The pharmacy and gift store is a business entity of Sovereign Pharmacy Solutions, a subsidiary of Sovereign Medical Solutions that also owns and operates the Family Practice Clinic. The decision to open services to the general public was originally born from a request of Chickasaw tribal citizens who were looking for a pharmacy program for their non-native spouses. “We are very pleased to expand our health care services to the entire community,” said Bill Anoatubby, Governor of the Chickasaw Nation. “Our goal is to offer convenient access to high quality health care and pharmacy services.” Chris Anoatubby, Sovereign Medical Solutions president and Chickasaw Nation chief medical solutions officer, said offering Pharmacy services to the general public is a new direction for the Nation. “Traditionally, our medical services have been offered to Chickasaw citizens or members of other Native American tribes. When we initially opened the Family Practice Clinic to Chickasaw Nation employees, we quickly realized that model easily translates to providing pharmacy services to the general public as well. For the first time ever, the general public will be able to utilize both the Family Practice Clinic and the pharmacy’s services as well.” Chris Anoatubby said that Sovereign Pharmacy & Fine Gifts will continue to have special pharmacy programs for employees of the Chickasaw Nation. Whether to fill a prescription or shop for a friend’s upcoming birthday, the pharmacy’s convenient location and the many lines of upscale, popular gifts and merchandise offered will be available for anyone to utilize. Sovereign Pharmacy & Fine Gifts also houses an upscale boutique shopping experience offering men’s and women’s clothing and accessories. Featured high-end designer lines will include: Oakley sunglasses, apparel and accessories; a full-line of Brighton handbags, luggage, jewelry, apparel, sunglasses and more; Juicy Couture purses, watches, jewelry and accessories; and Kameleon jewelry. Additionally, the store will carry various lines of name-brand sunglasses for both men and women. The boutique will offer gifts for bridal and baby showers. Oklahoma-made Bedré Fine Chocolates also will be available at the store. Sovereign Pharmacy & Fine Gifts will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information about Sovereign Pharmacy Solutions & Fine Gifts visit http://sovereignmedicalsolutions. net/pharmacy-solutions/.

State and local laws require public notice because you need to know when actions that affect you are about to happen. We expect accountability, transparency and warnings from our state and local governments. Many important notices are included as part of this newspaper. Printed newspaper notices are permanent, affordable, archived, independent of government and well-read. In a statewide survey, 68% of Oklahomans said government should be required to publish notices in local newspapers. Furthermore, 70% said government should not be allowed to put notices only on their own website. Oklahomans know internet postings don’t achieve the same result as printed public notice put in the hands of local citizens. Public notice is for you – when you need to know.

Wake Up America When this president and the Democrat controlled Senate of the United States ratify something like the “Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty” (Start III) with Vladimir Putin’s Russia, a red light instantly turns on! Our nuclear arsenal is cut roughly in half from 3,000 to 1,500. Obama now has ordered the Defense Department to explore the possibility of reducing our arsenal down to as few as 300 warheads. Obama disarms the United States, while he does nothing, NOTHING, to stop Iran from their nuclear buildup. While “hugging” Venezuela dictator Hugo Chavez, Obama’s budget increases to The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Islamic extremists come from U.S. tax dollars. Last week, Obama proposed closing 9 Border Patrol stations along our southern border in four states. As long as he can keep the illegal immigrants that are already here, then add more before November, his reelection will be a cinch. There are men and women with their lives on the line trying to protect our southern border and Obama simply spits in their faces. Any new fighter jet development has been cancelled , and Obama’s Defense Department plans on eliminating 280 aircraft and 9,900 Airmen. Mr. Obama has called on the Navy to cancel long held plans for a 300 ship fleet, retire nine current ships, and to cut or delay

the purchase of 16 others. With the Army, Mr. Obama plans to cut 72,000 soldiers. With the Marines, Mr. Obama is ordering the elimination of six battalions, four tactical air squadrons, and up to 50,000 Marines. I could go on about other things that this Democrat administration is doing to weaken our national defense system. This is only a sample of what this president and his Democrat Senate do on a daily basis. Thank God that in 2010 the Democrats lost their majority in the House of Representatives, due to the people that love this country. This month the UN is meeting to discuss more world socialism. In previous articles I have mentioned that Hillary Clinton is there to discuss and possibly sign on to a “small arms treaty”. This treaty, as I understand it, has to be ratified by the U.S. Senate. Guess who controls the United States Senate? Any Senator, whether Democrat, Republican, or Independent who votes to ratify any agreement that degrades our Constitution should be tried for treason. BAR NONE END OF STORY! The U.S. could save a huge amount of money by getting out of the UN. We do not need the UN. It maybe different if other countries would pay their fair share, yet, from the get go, the United States has footed a large amount of the bill. As long as we have people in Washington D.C. that cannot and will not

balance our national budget, this sort of back slapping will continue. Endless dollars will continue to be sent as foreign aid to countries who hate us. We have a president who continues to trample over the Constitution. Obama has sent his attorney general Eric Holder to sue 3 or 4 states concerning different issues. What happened to the 10th Amendment that protects states rights. Now this Democrat administration is threatening the 2nd Amendment with this small arms treaty. This treaty not only effects guns, but also controls ammunition. Only Obama and

Hillary know the details, much like his health care bill. The American people who will pay for this are still in the dark. It is so degrading to know that we have a commander in chief who has never taken the oath of his office seriously by tearing down the strongest military force on this planet. We in Oklahoma can be proud that we see through his smoke and mirrors. All of your friends, neighbors, and relatives in other states need to know how we feel in Oklahoma. Oklahoma is leading this fight and will continue the fight to get this administration out of power . Ever person

I G,


Atwood First Baptist

If you ere looking for something to be thankful for this Sunday, you can certainly put air conditioned buildings on your list. I’ve referred to this topic before, but let me add that when I remember summer Sundays at the little church my family attended back in the in the early 50’s, I’m thankful that the nostalgia doesn’t include the room temperature. Several cardboard fans, compliments of the funeral home, were distributed along all the pews and were in constant use throughout the sermon. Besides the funeral home logo, these fans were decorated with pictures from Bible stories. Along with the 100 degree plus temperatures, they were handy reminders of our mortality, God’s mercy, and the urgency of avoiding even hotter temperatures in what we hoped was the distant future.

Atwood Nazarene Church

Our summer is almost over. Soon the kids will be going back to school. We need to pray for our children as they face the pressures of their peers and the stresses of school life. We want them to know that we will help them in any way we can. Our churches need to support our youth. We begin our Sunday School hour at 10:00. This is important to our spiritual growth as we learn more about the Bible and the life of Jesus. Our children learn about the miracles Jesus performed and life lessons that He taught His disciples. We encourage young and old to come to Sunday School. At 11:00 we begin the worship hour with singing and praise. We pray for the many who are on our prayer list. If God has given you good health you have a lot to praise Him for. So many people are suffering from physical and emotional problems. Our special this past Sunday morning was sung by Matt Chapman and Gary, “Sweet Hour of Prayer.” Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from Psalm 14:1-7 and entitled “Can a Nation be Turned Around.” In this world evil may seem to have the upper hand. Corruption is everywhere. Godliness is on the decline. Everyone is out for themself. Righteousness may seem impossible to find. No one seems to believe in right and wrong anymore. Godliness is scorned and even hated. The godly are accused of intolerance and hatred. The church seems powerless and impotent. We can’t even seem to get believers interested in the things of God. How can we hope to change the world? God is still in control. The Lord is still in heaven. He may not be getting good publicity, but He is on the Throne. He is looking for people of faith to rise up. Are there any who will deny themselves and seek Him? God’s people are the key. Only the people of God can bring revival to a desperate nation. What will happen if His people remain complacent? The Lord is still the refuge of His people. The Lord has promised to restore the fortunes of His people. The Lord is waiting upon His people. Sunday night we traveled to Arpelar to the Fifth Sunday Singing. Several groups sang, but from our church Bro. Larry, Murphy, and Kelsey Sherry sang. We are thrilled to have our young people singing in our services. Sunday morning we will have breakfast at 9:30. We invite everyone to come eat and attend morning services with us.

Back in 2012 now, we were glad to have several visitors in the worship service. The August church breakfast is scheduled for next Sunday morning at 9:30, and I heard that pancakes are on the menu this time. Sunday evening we will begin a study of the Baptist Faith and Message. Lessons will include discussions on the why’s as well as the doctrine itself. Classes begin at 5:00 and last about an hour. For some reason, I misunderstood that announcement at first and thought they were announcing that we would be studying the doctrine and messages in the Baptist Hymn book. Perhaps that wouldn’t be a bad idea for the next study. The Youth Evangelism Conference is scheduled for August 10th and 11th and will be held in Tulsa. Oldsters as well as the youth are invited to go. Good Bible teaching is an equal opportunity inspiration. James Hammonds, Tom Spillman, and Wyatt Deaton brought the special music, and they chose “Because He Lives” this time. Since this was the Fifth Sunday of the month, we observed the Lord’s Supper during the worship service. Rev. Karch’s message focused on the Passover Meal that Jesus and his

disciples observed the evening when Jesus was arrested. The sermon was based in Matthew 26:14-30. The Passover observance was very important to Israel because it commemorated the deliverance of Israel from their bondage in Egypt. This was the most important Passover of all though, because for those who trust Him as their savior, Jesus transformed the Passover into the Lord’s Supper. Judas was obviously not at one with Jesus and the other

disciples since he was willing to betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. Only those who trust Jesus as their savior are invited to partake of the Lord’s Supper so it is worth noting that Judas did not observe it with Jesus and the other disciples. Salvation was made possible only because Jesus gave his body and blood to buy it for us. The New Testament is the New Covenant, and it lays out the plan of salvation. Today, the bread and wine used in the Passover Meal represents the

body and blood that Jesus gave on our behalf. It is now known as The Lord’s Supper and is never to be taken lightly. It represents the astounding sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf. It is a time to honor him and to examine our minds and hearts as honestly as we can. Where we see that we are sinning, it is a time to confess the sins to God and begin to make the corrections that are needed. God is good.
