Impatient horses tend to anxiously chew on their bits before races. — Mental Floss —CC— And last of all, my favorite “horse” story. Two horse traders were by Bill Robinson, arguing over the terms of a Publisher horse swap. “Tell me,” said one, “has As a youngster I enjoyed riding horses. My uncle anyone ever questioned my and aunt, Bontie and Ollene Abernathy, always had honesty?” horses and they were kind enough to let their nieces and “Well, no,” was the reply. nephews ride them any time they wanted. My favorite “But it’s never been menhorse was “Cricket” and those horseback rides were tioned either.” some of the best times of my life. This past week I read an interesting article about horses. Most of the information in it I did not know. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. What Is Horsepower? The short answer: It’s a unit for measuring the power an engine can produce. The even shorter answer? It’s a marketing ploy. In 1764, Scottish engineer James Watt was brooding over a question that trips up the best inventors: How do I convince people to use my product? Watt had drastically improved the steam engine, but he needed to persuade the mine operators who used horses to haul heavy loads that his contraption was worth empting their pockets for. That’s when Watt hit on a solution worth of Don Draper. What if he made a case that his contraption could replace a whole team of horses. Watt calculated that it took a horse one minute to lift 21,960 pounds of coal one foot. Legend has it that the horses he tested were actually ponies. Because Watt figured that workhorses were 50 percent stronger, he fudged the number up to 33,000. The he used his calculations to convince miners, enticing them with the idea of replacing horse labor with steam labor. If a machine boasts 1 horsepower, it’s strong enough to move 33,000 pounds a distance of one foot in one minute. Although Watt’s methodology wasn’t particularly scientific, his marketing plan worked!

—CC— Today In History . . . Andrew Jackson, the first U.S. president born in a log cabin, was the son of poor Scots-Irish immigrants who scratched a living from the soil of the South Carolina backcountry. His father died about two weeks before he was born, leaving the strongwilled mother, Elizabeth, to raise the Jackson boys. During the Revolution-

ary War, 13-year-old Andy joined the Patriot militia as an orderly and courier. On April 10, 1781, the militia had gathered at a Presbyterian church when British troops surprised them. Andy and his brother Robert escaped into the woods, only to be captured the next morning at a nearby cabin. A Tory officer ordered Andy to clean continued Page 3

Atwood First Baptist Church Hark! Is that the sound of a lawn mower or a snow plow that I hear? Lately, it could be either one. It might even be a boat motor if you live near a lake. Season and climate seem to have little to do with the weather conditions right now. I suppose that’s the reason they say that April fools. The revival services our church held recently were well attended, the messages were good, and the fellowships afterward were very enjoyable. But best of all, eight people made professions of faith! And this Sunday we were privileged to hold a baptism service before the morning worship service began. God is good and greatly to be praised.

Olivia Stapp, Amos Stapp, and RayLynn Crase opened the worship service by sharing their memory verse with us. When asked if they were going to sing, they quickly improvised with RayLynn leading in her version of the song “Jesus Loves Me.” Tom Spillman sang “Peace in the Valley” as the special music selection. Although this song speaks—okay, sings---of peace in the valley someday, perhaps it needs another verse about the peace beyond all understanding that God gives us in this life, too. Rev. Karch’s message was from I Kings 18:21-40. It was during King Ahab and his wife Jezebel’s reign, and the people of Israel were faltering between whether to worship God or Baal.

Elijah, the only prophet of God who was left after Jezebel had the others killed, challenged the people to decide. He proposed a test to determine whether it was God or Baal who was the true God, the one they should follow. The people agreed to his plan, and the test began. At Elijah’s direction, two bulls were selected, and one was slain as an offering for Baal. The 450 prophets of that god prepared the offering and the altar. Then, according to the terms of Elijah’s challenge, they called on Baal to send fire to consume it. Nothing happened, of course, and even after almost an entire day of what became increasingly frenzied requests, the slain

bull on their altar remained as it was when they began. Then it was Elijah’s turn, and he directed the people to come close. He repaired the altar of the Lord and made a trench around it. Next, he piled wood on the altar, cut the slaughtered bull into pieces, and laid the pieces on the wood. He then told the people to fill four large jars with water and pour them over the offering and the wood. Then he had them fill the four jars with water two more times and pour them over the offering and wood. Finally, he prayed aloud to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Immediately, the fire of the Lord came down from heaven and devoured the bull, the wood, and

even the altar itself. There was no doubt that God was the true God then, and the people fell face down and worshiped Him. T he 450 prophets of Baal were rounded up and killed. We are faced with the same choice the people of Elijah’s time had to make: which God will we serve? If we choose to worship the world, we will lose the world when we die, and we’ll be choosing hell and its horrors as our place to spend eternity. If we choose to worship the true God, when we leave this world we will lose nothing, and we will be choosing heaven with its amazing blessings as your place to spend eternity.

fast horses,” the writer Carl Sandburg observed. While a judge in Tennessee, he sent a succession of deputies to apprehend a huge man wanted for a heinous crime. They all returned empty-handed, so Jackson himself arrested the criminal. Asked why he finally surrendered, the man said, “I looked him in the eye, and I saw shoot. And there wasn’t shoot in nary other eye in the crowd.” When Old Hickory was elected the seventh U.S. president, frontiersmen rode hundreds of miles to join

the inaugural party, overrunning the White House with muddy boots. Refined ladies and gents said it was the beginning of mob rule. Jackson knew better. He knew it was just American democracy on its way to growing up.

changes. During World War II, the content of the penny changed from copper to lead. It was hard to get used to that strange looking penny, but the copper penny came back when the war ended. The penny is one that people throw into a can, bucket or basket, and when that container gets full, may be transferred to a larger container, and they continue to accumulate. When one of my sisters died, we found a five gallon can one-half full in one of her closets. Also an umbrella stand was at least one third full and vases were found with a lot of pennies in each one. I don’t think she had ever spent a penny. At least not for many, many years. We just took them to the bank

and let them count them. When they stop making the penny, will we be able to spend those we find around the house. Will people keep them thinking they will become collector’s items in later years? What is the fate of the penny we know today? Why is it hard to spend a penny? I pick four out of a dish on my counter each time I put change in my pocket. The reason is that when I shop and need some I do not want get more in change and get home with a lot more pennies. There is always a cup on my cabinet filled with pennies. When that cup gets full, I count and roll them and take them to the bank for larger coins or bills. I don’t want for them to accumulate as they did at my sister’s house. That is the lesson I learned from that experience.

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ

Does God require us to do something that is not necessary? Is baptism for the forgiveness of our sins really necessary? Does it make sense to you that God would require us to be baptized to be forgiven of our sins? Most of us would agree that to be saved, we must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Most of us would also agree that we must repent, turning away from sin and that confession of faith in Jesus is necessary. However, some people cannot see why Jesus would require baptism. They do not see the reason behind being baptized! When Naaman sought to be cured of his leprosy, God’s prophet told him to dip seven times in the River Jordon. At first, he went away and refused to do it. Do you suppose that, as many today think about Baptism, he couldn’t understand any connection or reason why dipping seven times in

the muddy river of Jordon could cure leprosy? There was certainly nothing in the water to cure him of leprosy. Do you suppose it was a test to see if he really had faith in God to cure him? Of course, doing what God’s prophet told him to do when it did not make any sense was a great expression of faith in God!! It required him to put his faith in God, rather than trust in his own reasoning or effort! Could baptism for the forgiveness of sin also be an expression of faith in Jesus to save us, rather than trusting our own effort, our intellect or our will to be saved? After all, baptism is a burial with our savior and into our savior. “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Rom 6:3-4) How can anyone doubt that baptism is an expression of faith, not an effort to earn salvation?

Stonewall who constantly preached about the end of the world. Even better, he named dates and painted a pretty sorry picture of our future. Guess he didn’t think we would make it. Problem was one Christmas he said to us: “Enjoy your Christmas children, this will be your last.” That particular Sunday was the day every child in church received a Christmas bag containing an apple, an orange and other goodies. It was close to being my favorite Sunday of the year. My brother Gerald and I were pretty concerned about this said turn of events. The poor preacher was disappointed when the moon failed to turn to blood nor did the earth explode and the end didn’t come. The preacher was, however, smart enough to tone back his rhetoric. In somewhat similar circumstances as the dysfunctional preacher Al Gore remains unfazed. He just keeps on going. He and his “fellow warmers” named dates, established exact tables of flood tides for cities and have models and gave us the exact time of doom. Unfortunately for Al Gore none of these took place—at least not on the timetable he chose. The CO2 levels have increased but the temperatures and tides didn’t. In fact most scientists have noted a long pause in the heating of the globe. The heating that has been noticed since 1903 continued up into the 1990s but, as though to confound Gore and his believers, the earth hasn’t heated any since. This past winter being the worse winter perhaps ever recorded in modern history didn’t help his program either. It didn’t even stop him

and his zealots from identifying this winter as the warmest on record. I don’t know. Al Gore could strike pay-dirt on his dust bowl predictions, however. The area is known to have severe droughts from time to time and history records some worse than the one in the 30s. But other “experts” say the dust bowl conditions were brought on by poor and incorrect farming methods preceding the drought and that the type of dust bowl as people suffered through in the 30s is not likely to be repeated. Check back with me in about 50 years and I’ll give you a more definitive answer. I think the weather will just keep on doing what it does regardless of what I or Al Gore think. I think everyone has had a great time watching

“March Madness.” I’ve heard a few people complain that they are sick of it but not me. Even though it seemed most of the teams I chose (I didn’t make a bracket) to win crashed in flames early on. U-Conn boys won out much to my surprise and it now appears that the UConn girls may well win their own championship. My main concern is this: Will all this success by U-Conn go to the head of my brother-in-law, Rod Bailey? Bailey, the selfanointed mayor of Black Rock moved to Oklahoma from Connecticut several years ago so I just try to humor him. I hope all of you have a good weekend and remember to go to your church this Sunday. Wayne Bullard, DPh

oilfields during his lifetime. He enjoyed going to auctions, watching high school ball games, and being with his family and friends. He loved OU football, shopping at the mall, and going to bingo with Gail. Snooks loved to travel and went on many adventures with Alice and Gail. He loved to talk to Scott about the farm and cattle and the score of “the game” whichever game it may have been at the time. Of course, nothing in life compared to the love he had for his grandchildren, greatgrandchildren and his great-great grandchild. He loved to spend as much time with them as he could right up to the very end of his life. Each child saw “Papa” as their own.

Lady Mustangs inching closer to playoffs Spring slow-pitch regular season campaign ends in late April

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen High School softball season is inching closer to the playoffs. For Coach Jeremy Strong, the number of games remaining on the slow-pitch schedule is down to just four. Allen will close out this week with a 4:30 p.m. game on Thursday. The Lady Mustangs will host the Roff Lady Tigers in varsity play at the AHS field. The games on the regularseason calendar next week will include only two. Allen is set to travel to Maud to play the Lady Tigers at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 14. The Lady Mustangs will be back at home on Wednesday, April 15 to face the

Stratford Lady Bulldogs. The two softball squads will square off in a 4:30 p.m. contest. Allen’s final regular-season softball action is slated for 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22. Wanette will come to town for the finale’ at the Allen High School field. Coach Strong’s team has not played a softball game in April. Their most recent action came on March 31 in an 11-2 loss to Class A’s second-ranked Asher Lady Indians. Allen was on tap to visit Stuart Monday for a game against Class 2A’s 10 thranked Lady Hornets. However, Mother Nature stepped in and rained out the date. Looking ahead to post-

season play, Allen will play in a district tournament late this month. The OSSAA schedule will have Slow Pitch Districts in classes A-2A-3A-4A-5A all completed by Saturday, April 26. The district assignments for all the Class A softball teams will be announced soon – likely by Friday of this week. Once the pairs are released, Coach Strong will know where the Lady Mustangs will start their playoff journey. It’s likely due to their low win count that the Allen girls will be going on the road to play the district tournament at a nearby school. Here are some of the key members of the squad in

Charlea & Jordan Selected Mustangs of the Month from Page 1

The Allen High School Mustangs of the Month for March, Charlea Leonard and Jordan Mikel Remis, were honored this week and presented their awards by Allen Chamber of Commerce sponsor Taylor Howard, Financial Advisor at Edward Jones Investments, Ada. The students were presented a plaque from the Chamber and receive a cash award in “Allen Bucks” from Mr. Howard. The money may be spent at Allen businesses that are members of the Chamber. In addition to their photos and bio in The Advocate, their picture will also be on display at the Farmers State Bank. Charlea, a sophomore, is the daughter of Kelly

and Robert Cooper and Kregg Leonard. Her favorite subject is Biology.

In addition she is a member of the Honor Society and made AllTournament Basketball Teams two times this year. Charlea likes to draw and play basketball. She also likes to spend time with her family, especially her dogs. When asked her future plans she said, “I would like to go into

Law Enforcement and/or become a lawyer.” The nominating teacher said, “Charlea is a model student. She is consistently prepared for class, respectful to others and pleasant to be around. Charlea is involved in multiple extra-curricular activities and she does a fantastic job of balancing her activities and course work. Charlea is always positive and there is never anything negative to be said about her. Her personality, attitude and accomplishments make her a standout among her peers.” Jordan is the son of Ramona Remis and is in his final year at Allen High.

She then had to wait until the election at the FCCLA State Convention on April 4th when members from across Oklahoma came together and voted for the new State Executive Council. At the end of the convention the results of the elections were announced and Taryn was installed as a state officer. Taryn is only the second person from Allen High School to ever be elected as a state FCCLA officer. She will have a very busy and exciting year ahead of her as she represents Allen High School and Oklahoma FCCLA on the state and national levels. Some of her duties will include planning and conducting workshops, installing district officers, and leading chapter officer trainings throughout Oklahoma.

Calvin Girls on Road to Recovery The past eight months have been ones of difficulty, trials, misinformation and recovery for 14year-old Desarae Pointer of Calvin. In August, with no apparent cause, Desarae started walking with a limp, then she started having trouble getting up from a sitting position. This continued to get worse until by January she was having so much trouble she needed to use a walker because her legs would give out and she would fall. She had a hard time moving and her balance was affected. This was hard on her because she loved to play sports, especially basketball and softball.

At first she was treated with physical therapy but as her condition worsened the doctors did some test and said she was suffering from metal poisoning (aluminum and tin). Her diet was changed so she ate nothing that had been canned but her condition still progressed. More tests and the doctors thought it might be M.S. Specialists were to be consulted but first an MRI was required. The MRI was done on a Thursday with plans to see a specialist the following week. When the test was completed they immediately wanted more testing before she went home. All day they ran tests, then they admit-

ted her to the hospital that night. They were told Desarae had Hydrocephalus, known in layman’s terms as “water on the brain.” On Saturday they did the first surgery to remove fluid. On Monday they did a second surgery to bring down the pressure on her brain. Now, after the two surgeries, Desarae is able to walk again and there is no major brain damage. How did this happen? The doctor said it could have been caused by a headache so mild she never complained. Desarae may have to undergo another surgery but the family prays this won’t be necessary. They thank God for answering their prayers, and the prayers of so many others, by healing her. What a miracle it is! Hopefully in time De-

sarae can play ball again; right now they just thank God as He continues to keep His hand on them as they try to pay all the medical bills.

Desarae is the daughter of Heather Johnson. She and her siblings, sister D.J. Hamburger (age 16) and brother Devion Johnson (age 10), attend Calvin schools.

TRAFFIC Terry Max Ballard— speeding 1-10 mph over limit

Don was born and raised in Warren, Ohio. When he was only 17, he moved to California and that’s where he met Mom. They were married for more than 29 years. He was a great Dad and took my older brother and me on weekend fishing trips. We moved back to Oklahoma to care for my Grandma – and liked it so much we stayed. Dad worked for years in heating and air-conditioning and eventually opened his own successful business. He was intelligent, funny and loved to ride his Harley.Dad was hurt in a motorcycle accident, and he never recovered. It didn’t surprise any of us to find out that he signed up to be a donor. We miss his quiet strength and brilliant humor. Organ, eye and tissue donation saves lives. Please make your decision to donate life, and then tell your family! Register to be an organ, eye and tissue donor on your Oklahoma driver’s license or state ID card, or register online at www.lifeshareregistry.org. If you don’t have a license, or state ID card, and do not have internet access, call 800-826-LIFE (5433), and ask for a donor registration card.

accounts you have, the saying “more is better” is not necessarily true. In fact, if you hold multiple accounts with various brokers, it can be difficult to keep track of your investments and to see if you’re properly diversified.* At the very least, multiple accounts usually mean multiple fees. Bringing your accounts to Edward Jones could help solve all that. Plus, one statement can make it easier to see if you’re moving toward your goals. *Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss.

To learn why consolidating your retirement accounts to Edward Jones makes sense, call your local financial advisor today.
