Accident Claims Life of Allen Teen An accident early Tuesday morning, September 19th, claimed the life of 18-year-old Matthew W. McCarn. The incident occurred 2.5 miles south of Allen on Highway 48 at 4:59 am. He was pronounced at the scene by EMS personnel. Driving north in his 2007 GMC pickup, Matt ran off the roadway to the right, over-corrected to the left and the vehicle rolled an undetermined number of times, coming to rest on its side. The driver was ejected an unknown distance. The report by OHP Trooper Alan Fortner stated the cause of the collision was unsafe speed. He also reported seatbelts were not in use; the airbags deployed; the roadway was dry and the weather clear. Fortner was assisted by the Allen Fire Department, the Pontotoc County Sheriff’s Office, Mercy EMS, and the Ada Fire Department.

C ountry Comments


by Bill Robinson, Publisher

This past week a friend and I were talking about the starting of a new school year. It was the only time of year we got new clothes . . . and getting school supplies was a real treat. Rick Bragg has memories of the special time also and wrote the following . . . The long hallways – math to this side, science to the other, social studies down the way – were of ancient, gleaming wood, and always smelled of fresh wax and old misery. How many D minuses had fluttered down to those dark boards? How many “trues” that should have been “falses”? How many multiple choices that left no choice at all? It was around 1966 or 1967, but September for sure, because September meant that summer was truly dead. It was still hot outside, but with one halting step into the gloom of that hall you entered a whole other realm, where coaches and even math teachers kept order with long wooden paddles, and a secondgrade teacher once kicked my cowboy boot clear off my foot, then, with a running second kick, knocked it clear into the hall. All this because I left one leg sprawled out in the aisle during her elocution. Still, it was a fine kick for an old woman. I should have hated that school, Roy Webb School in Calhoun County, Alabama. I would have, maybe, if not for that notebook. As much as I hated the end of those hot, free days of summer, I loved that notebook, loved the clean, unmarred lines. Every year I got a new one, divided by subject, and it was always somehow just enough to get me through the year, perhaps because math was completely blank. Except for pictures of hot rods. I used a quarter to get the wheels right. Mostly, I loved the smell of it. It smelled like… well, I couldn’t put words to it, then. Now I know it was the smell of a fresh start, the smell of possibility. I could learn something, if at the end of the year the pages were filled with ideas, maybe even answers. I would start writing on the third or fourth page, because surely there was some finer idea that needed to go first. I wrote Mark Twain’s thoughts here, about how work is a thing a body is obliged to do, while play is a thing one is not obliged to do. I wrote every line to “Big Rock Candy Mountain,” about how the hens laid soft-boiled eggs. My books were wrapped in brown paper bags from the Piggly Wiggly, and on those rare occasions I got a new one, the spine would make a cracking sound, like snapping an ice-cream stick, when I first opened it. My desk was always carved at least once with the name of a long-lost third grader, always daubed at least five times with a petrified wad of Juicy Fruit. I puzzled at that. How did he expect to get away with defacing school property when he signed his work? And how did a school that had banned the chewing of gum since the first Roosevelt administration have desks in such a state? Come to think of it, they had banned pocketknives too. But this was the key to my castle. I learned here. I walk through stores and pick up notebooks and smell them,

and I am sure more than one person has shaken their head at the odd man trying to snort up a stationery aisle. It does not smell the same. I think it is because my chance is used up, and the great possibility with it. Maybe only the young can sense it, the ones at the beautiful, unmarred beginning of things. —CC— At the beginning each school year my mind goes back to the first grade and one of the greatest times of my life – thanks to a precious teacher named Jewell Nichols. She was not only our teacher but like a mother to us. We started each day with the Lord’s Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. She taught us much more than just what was in the books. Up until her death, I would stop by her home frequently Dakota Nickell returns a kick-off during recent action to check on her. I miss those conversations. Up until her death she could tell you where most of her “children” were and what they were doing. She could pull out a class picture from 20-years ago and identify everyone in it. Her “children” were not just her students . . . they were her family. I have never known a finer Christian lady. S everal years before her death I wrote a letter telling her how much she meant to me. A few weeks later I dropped by to check on here and the letter had been framed and was hanging in her front room. She told me how much that letter meant to her. After Jewell’s death, her sister Juanita brought the framed letter by and told me she was sure Jewell would want me to have it. Too often I have put off writing a note to people that were special to me until it was too late. Thankfully, in Jewell’s case I didn’t. I have the following poem on the wall next to my desk so I can read it almost everyday . Colby Eaker checks on the line during the Mustangs game against Wetumka

Country Comments from Page 2 Around the corner I have a friend, In this great city that has no end. Yet the days go by and weeks rush on, And before I know it, a year is gone. And I never see my old friend’s face, For life is a swift and terrible race. He know I like him just as well As in the days when I rang his bell. And he rang mine but we were younger then, And now we are busy, tired men. Tired of playing a foolish game, Tired of trying to make a name. “Tomorrow” I say, “I will call on Jim Just to show that I’m thinking of him.” But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, And distance between us grows and grows. Around the corner, yet miles away, “Here’s a telegram sir, Jim died today.” And sadly too often what we get in the end, Around the corner, a vanished friend.

Those that mean so much to us deserve to be told . . .NOW.

by the wayside. Check out notes left by the new generation; the writing is very large and unless it is printed, may be hard to read. Nobody writes letters. Do you remember how few Christmas cards you received last year? There was even a new program sold last year for computers to send out e-cards. Several years ago I bought a group of magazines that were in a garage sale. The dates of these magazines (mostly McCalls and Saturday Evening Post) are all in the year 1960’s. The reason I bought those magazines is the fact that my daughter was born in 1961 and I wanted to have something from those

I may never learn to use the ipod, the iphone, the ipad, Skype, and all the new things that have been introduced in this new world. I don’t even enjoy the monthly magazines as I used to. There are no stories; just short sentences. I cancelled my long time subscription to the Reader’s Digest recently. There are no stories. Just small sections, sometimes from four to six to a page, stating short facts about various subjects. Everything in it looks like an advertisement. You have to really begin to read what is written in order to determine that it is not, in fact, an ad. Everything is changing. Even cursive writing is going

years to remember how life was in the world at that time. I picked up one today and thumbed through it. Listed was a story of twenty-nine pages entitled The Doctor. It was a good story. In each magazine, there are several long, and very good, fictional stories. Each magazine has over 200 pages and the pages are of a large size. An article in one of the magazines was by Louella Parsons, the Hollywood gossip columnist. Her article was listed as her private story, entitled The First To Know, and she wrote about Grace Kelly, Judy Garland, Hedda Hopper, Joan Crawford’s marriages, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin,

Doris Day, Marlon Brando and every big star in Hollywood at the time. Eleanor Roosevelt, Claire Booth Luce and Wallis, Duchess of Windsor were regular monthly writers for these magazines. There were also many ads in beautiful color. Each ad was a full page, or sometimes two. Many were for mink coats or stoles. You will never see an ad for a mink coat in any of the magazines today. These were in the issues published during the winter months. The magazines are

a work of art in themselves, compared to the magazines today. I am glad I bought and have saved them. They make interesting reading and are great reminders as to how life was in the 1960’s. I even enjoy looking at the clothing ads. They feature much of the clothes that are still in my closet. They have not been worn in years, however, will I ever get rid of them? I think about it occasionally but they are still there. Four closets full. I seem to wear the same black slacks, day in and day out. Except for Sunday when I get out a more dress up pair for Church.

One Pharmacist’s View THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, SEPTEMBER 19, 2013-PAGE 5

Harry Truman hadn’t been president very long before he discovered that the White House was falling apart. People upstairs could be heard walking downstairs and the creaks and groans from the timbers holding up the place seemed to be getting worse. They were too. Soon Harry and Bess had moved over to Blair House and the White House had to almost be completely rebuilt. But you know how real estate is. You can never do enough. I saw Obama flick a fly one day on TV and knew right off that things were going to pot again. But then life in the White House has never been all its cooked up to be. Barbara Bush, going for her daily swim in the White House pool, found herself racing a rat. She said it was enormous and she had it murdered. It took the secret service, Millie the

I Smell A Rat

Spaniel, and the President himself to drown the rat. Which reminds me of Jimmy Carter who made a noble battle against the entrenched mice of the 213 year old building. Carter wanting something done ordered the mice exterminated. He called the GSA who said “who us?” “We only do inside mice. Since we already killed all the mice in the White House in a previous time, the mice are new (outside mice) and came from the outside. You need to call the Department of Interior.” Of course the Interior folk said “not us.” “Those are inside mice.” Meanwhile, President Carter had a big meeting in the Oval Office with the Prime Minister of Italy and not only were mice joining in on the welcome, the odor

of dead mice in the walls of the esteemed office was overwhelming. Carter went ballistic when the two departments, who he thought ought to be interested in this problem, said it would be inhumane to set a trap or to indulge in chemical warfare. Not known at the time was that Obama would also struggle with this type of weapon some years down the road. Carter summoned both department heads and told the sensitive liberals that they either got rid of the mice or he would find new people. He said he would fire them. At this, fearing for their jobs and instantly losing sympathy for the mice they went to work. Their liberal sympathies were put aside. Traps were set and daily battle reports to the White

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ A preacher was quizzed about something he was teaching. In answer, he stated that religious scholars for centuries had believed and taught as he was. People in the audience were not really interested in the beliefs of learned scholars; they wanted to know the truth from the Bible, God’s word. If many people – even scholarly people – believe something is true, does that

mean it is definitely true? Scholarly and learned men once believed the earth was flat, but they were mistaken. Men of medicine once practiced “bloodletting” to cure disease, but we know it did more harm than good! Many such theories and ideas of men have been proved to be in error. Jesus accused the religious leaders of His day of disobeying the commands of God by holding to teachings and traditions of men. (Matthew 15:3) Shouldn’t we inquire about our religion today? Is what we believe based on the teaching of men or man’s incorrect interpretations of the Scriptures? Could we be like the Scribes and Pharisee who transgressed the commands of God by observing men’s traditions? If a majority of Bible schol-

ars believe a certain idea, does that make it true? Did not the majority of religious leaders in ignorance crucify Jesus? (Acts 3:17) Jesus said that the majority of people were going the wrong direction. He said, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” (Matt 7:13-14) Instead of following the majority of people or accepting the word of religious scholars, should we not do as the people of Berea when the Apostle Paul preached to them? They listened to Paul and then “searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether the things were so.” (Acts 17:11) Let’s remember that Jesus said “the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)

House included number of traps set, the kind they were and a body count of the mouse dead. In 3 days there were 48 traps set and 5 in the Oval Office. This number eventually rose to 296. GSA had 141 bait stations. The mouse offensive was humming. We all know that eventually the dead bodies in the wall finally simmered down and I suppose their little bones are still there. Was that the end of the story? Did every one live happily ever after? Well no. While mice can be fought, cock roaches are a different matter and they are in com-

mand of at least the press room as I write. Suppose I should send them the number of Terminex? I hope all of you are mouse free and happy as the seasons change. Remember, those field mice are said to be looking to move inside for the winter so be on your guard. Have a great weekend and be sure and go to church Sunday. I haven’t seen any roaches or mice down there at my church but I did see a few crickets. I don’t know about those Free Wills. Wayne Bullard, DPh Wayne

Thomason’s Facebook contact information was a cell phone number where she could be reached, and that number belonged to the victim. Because she was using the stolen cell phone, the victim believed they could possibly be connected to the other stolen items that were listed. On September 6th a search warrant was obtained for the Thomason residence. The warrant was served on September 7th. During the search six of the items that were reported stolen were found. The items were seized and photographed for evidence. A.J. Thomason and Mona Thomason were placed in custody. According to documents filed in the District Court of Hughes County on September 16th, A.J. and Mona Thomason face six separate counts of Knowingly Concealing Stolen Property. Each count if punishable by imprisonment in the State Penitentiary not to exceed five years, or in the

county jail not to exceed one year, or by a fine not to exceed five hundred dollars, or by both such fine and imprisonment the felony information states. Each of the six counts states that “said defendant, on or about the 7th day of September, 2013, did unlawfully, willfully, knowingly and feloniously, conceal from (victims name withheld) certain personal property of value that had prior thereto on the 9th day of August, 2013, been stolen from (victim) the said defendant knowing or having reasonable cause to believe said personal property was stolen, did then and there unlawfully conceal and withhold said property from the owner thereof.� The items included: Count 1 – a Honeywell HT-75 fan; Count 2 – an Acer 20� flat screen monitor, S201 HL; Count 3 – a Sharp 6 CD shelf stereo; Count 4 – A Kyocera cell phone; Count 5 – Dura brand computer speakers; Count 6 – a Weather Station.

Allen softball squad continues exciting play

By Herman Brown Allen correspondent Exciting is the best word to describe the play of the Allen Lady Mustangs. Coach Jeremy Strong has the ladies fighting hard to string together victories. Last week was another good example as AHS won three straight, including a pair of 1-run games. However, the final two contest put a halt to the win streak – and hopes of a tournament championship. The Lady Mustangs opened the week on Monday with a 4-3 win over the visiting Tupelo Lady Tigers. AHS followed up Tuesday with a 10-6 triumph at Vanoss. On Thursday, Allen open action in the Red, White and Blue Conference softball tournament. The Lady Mustangs played three times on the first day of the event. Allen started off in style with a thrilling 3-2 win over the Varnum Lady Whippets. However, the Lady Mustangs then went cold on offense and suffered back to back shutout losses to Stratford (5-0) and Mill Creek. The loss to the Mill Creek Lady Bullfrogs eliminated Allen from the double-elimination tournament. Here is a rundown of the five games the Allen girls played last week: On September 9, the Lady Mustangs pinned a 4-3 loss on the visiting Tupelo Lady Tigers. The visitors from Tupelo led 2-0 in the top of the first inning. However, Allen rallied with one run in the bottom of the first and two more runs in the third inning. The effort put the Lady Mustangs ahead 3-2. Coach Strong’s AHS squad plated another run in the bottom of the fourth inning to go on top 4-2. Tupelo was scoreless from the second inning until the top of the seventh. The lady Tigers scratched out one run to get to within 4-3.

However, Allen put the brakes on the visitors’ comeback bid to secure the 4-3 verdict. Abby Gaines was the winning pitcher. She worked 7 innings and allowed 3 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks. She recorded 11 strikeouts in the victory. Gaines also led the offensive attack for the Lady Mustangs. She was a perfect 3-for-3 and drove in 1 run. Taryn Wofford was 2-4 with 1 RBI while Alycia Evans was 2-3 and scored 1 run. Meagan Beavert was 1-2 and scored 2 runs. Sandra Howsar rounded out the 9-hit attack with a 1-2 showing. While Faith Caldwell didn’t get a hit, she scored an important run in the 1-run victory. On Tuesday, Allen was back in action over at Vanoss. Coach Strong’s Lady Mustangs outscored the home team Lady Wolves 10-6 in seven innings. Both teams stroked 11 hits. However, Vanoss made 5 errors to derail their victory hopes. Allen took advantage and posted the 4-run win. Abby Gaines was back in the circle to pitch all 7 innings. The stellar hurler allowed 6 runs on 11 hits and 3 walks. She mowed down 10 Lady Wolves on strikeouts. Jessi Merriman erupted with a 3-for-4 showing at the plate. Merriman also scored twice and drove in 2 runs. Three Lady Mustangs combined for 6 hits. Taryn Wofford was 2-for-3 with a double and a single. She scored 3 runs and added 1 RBI. Tessa Black was a dandy 2-for-4 in the game. Black scored 1 run and drove in 2 more. Alycia Evans was also 2-for-4 and contributed 2 RBI. Meagan Beavert was 1-for-1 with a double. Beavert also scored twice and added 1 RBI. continued Page 9

Lady Mustangs will wrap up regular-season campaign on Monday Faith Caldwell generated the final hit with a 1-for-4 effort. Caldwell also scored 1 run in the win. Sandra Howsar added 1 RBI while Brittnie Johnson scored 1 run. On Thursday, Allen went into the RWB tournament with a full head of steam. The Lady Mustangs continued their winning ways with a repeat win over the Vanoss Wolves. Allen plated 3 runs in the bottom of the first inning. Vanoss countered with two runs in the top of the second frame. From there, pitching and defense took charge in the four-inning (time limit) game. The Lady Mustang protected the 3-2 lead and escaped with another 1-run thriller. Abby Gaines pitched 4 innings to collect the mound decision. Gaines allowed 2 runs on 5 hits and 1 walk. She fanned 4 VHS batters en route to victory. Allen’s hit parade was led by Taryn Wofford with a 2-for-2 showing and 2 RBI. Meagan Beavert was 1-for-1 and scored once. The 6-hit attack also featured Jessi Merriman, Sandra Howsar and Alycia Evans all going 1-for-2 at the plate. Faith Caldwell and Abby Gaines each added 1 run in the game. The first-round decision sent Allen into the winner’s bracket second-round showdown with the Stratford Lady Bulldogs. Stratford scored twice in the top of the first inning, once in the fourth inning, and twice in the fifth inning. The Lady Bulldogs helped the cause with 8 hits. Meanwhile, Allen went scoreless in the six-inning loss. The Lady Mustangs were limited to only 3 hits. Meagan Beavert was 2-for-3 with a double and a single. Jessi Merriman added the other hit, a single, in a 1-for-2 effort. Abby Gaines was charged with the loss. Gaines pitched 5 innings and allowed 5 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks. She ended the game with 5 strikeouts. The loss dropped Allen into a third-round elimination game against the powerful Mill Creek Lady Bulldogs. This Friday the 13th contest did not end well for Coach Strong’s girls. Mill Creek pounded out 17 hits and plated 10 runs to win 10-0. Allen was limited to 5 hits while not plating a run. The girls getting the hits (one each) were Meagan Beavert, 1-3; Faith Caldwell, 1-2; Jesse Merriman, 1-1; Tessa Black, 1-2; and Brittnie Johnson, 1-2. Abby Gaines took the loss in the circle. She pitched 5 innings and allowed 10 runs and 17 hits. Gaines did not walk any batters – and ended up with 4 strikeouts. The Lady Mustangs saw the tournament stay end with the loss. Looking to this week’s schedule, the Lady Mustangs were scheduled to play at home on Monday, September 16 against the Stratford Lady Bulldogs.

The 2-point run failed, leaving the deficit at 14 points. Neither team scored in the fourth quarter. The lack of scoring sealed the 20-6 victory for the Allen Mustangs. Allen led in key categories in the game. The Mustangs were ahead in first downs 17-13. AHS also generated more total yardage at 416 to 178. AHS was more successful in the ground assault. They had 402 yards rushing on 47 carries. The Mustangs completed 3 passes for 17 yards. Waurika rushed for 64 yards on 19 carries and added 114 passing yards on 11 completions. The offensive star for Allen was Dalton James with 25 carries for 291 yards and 3 touchdowns. Justin Deaton had 7 carries for 46 yards while Colten Browning chipped in 10 carries for 46 yards. Preston Brown rounded out the list with 5 carries for 19 yards. In passing, Justin Deaton completed 1 throw to Thirkiel

Colton Browning followed with 7 stops. Ty Brown pounced on a Waurika fumble to create the only turnover of the game. Coach Deaton reviewed the keys to the win at Waurika. “I think we were physically dominated both sides of the ball,” he said. “Our defense played outstanding football for the whole game. On offense, we ran at will on them. I was pleased with the fact that we took care of the football. We did not have a turnover in the game. I can’t remember when we had no interceptions and no fumbles. Our whole team was really productive. Of course Dalton James ran phenomenally and had a great game (with 291 yards and all three touchdowns). This was a great team effort. But we can’t rest on this one game.

The History Channel • On Oct. 6, 1683, encouraged by William Penn’s offer of 5,000 acres of land in the colony of Pennsylvania and the freedom to practice their religion, the first Mennonites arrive in America aboard the Concord. The German Mennonites were founded in Europe by Menno Simons in the 16th century. • On Oct. 2, 1780, British Major John Andre, an accomplice of Benedict Arnold, is hanged as a spy by U.S. military forces in Tappan, N.Y. Andre wrote a letter to Gen. George Washington asking that he be executed by firing squad, that being a more “gentlemanly” death than hanging. • On Oct. 4, 1861, President Abraham Lincoln observes a balloon demonstration near Washington, D.C.

Calvin Rally Falls Short

Wesley Bain ignited a fifth inning rally with a one out single that scored Justin Holman and Zack Laurent and it seemed as though the Calvin Bulldogs might have a chance to erase a ten run deficit before the fifth inning ended. T he Bulldogs entered the inning down to a tough Earlsboro team by a score of 15-5 but managed to close the gap to 15-10. The five run rally showed there was still some fight in the Bulldogs but being ten runs down was just too much to over come.

David Yonker, Robert Attkisson, and Zack Laurent made a few great hits throughout the game. Micheal Lacey, Kaden Turpin, and Teddie Yonker all made miraculous catches. Coach Holland was quoted saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of the way they came back,â&#x20AC;? C oach Holland hopes the five run rally will be enough to get his club going. â&#x20AC;&#x153; I hope the come back helps us gain some momentum before we start district play next week.â&#x20AC;? Holland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re beginning to play better and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making progress.â&#x20AC;?
