Hughes County

Sheriff Snyder Resigns

Living in a small town, there will be false rumors, so I am providing this letter to clarify all of those rumors. The Hughes County jail has a maximum capacity of 36 inmates. In past months we have had 50 plus inmates, along with a riot, and numerous fights. This overcrowding problem has caused many ER visits, costing the county thousands of dollars. One Saturday, while painting at the office, one of my jailers came and said, “We have a man that was arrested for public intoxication, so can’t we release him after 6 hours?” I did not personally know this prisoner, and there was no bias involved. I told the jailer that was the procedure I followed at the Holdenville Police Department. It was my belief, in this situation, the County followed the same procedure, therefore, in six hours he was released on an OR bond, with a court date on his citation. The following Monday, our assistant DA called me and asked, “Who let an inmate sign on OR bond?” I told her that I did. She replied, “You do not have the authorization to release him.” She also stated that the municipal procedures and county procedures were different. I did not realize this, but I should have.

Although this truly was an innocent human error I committed, I hold myself to higher standards. Therefore, I am resigning. This decision came after much prayer and heartache. I truly believe this is the best decision for the valued voters of Hughes County. I would like to inform the voters of Hughes County that the Sheriff’s Department has made huge strides in the past 15 months. We now have a digital finger printing machine upstairs, the jail is a much cleaner facility, grocery expenses for the past quarter were reduced $8000 by changing vendors, and we now have a wonderful, remodeled office for the employees. Also, by donations we have purchased a drug dog to fight the battle against drugs, as promised in my campaign. I want to thank those who have supported me as their Hughes County Sheriff, and ask that you show the next sheriff the same support. Thank you Again, Kenny Snyder EDITORS NOTE . . . Snyder’s resignation was effective Friday, March 28, 2014. Undersheriff Nolen Grizzle was appointed to serve until the election June 24th. Filing period for the position of Sheriff will be April 9, 10, 11.

FARA Walk for Awareness in Support of Sam Brown Allen Schools invites area residents to come and participate in an endeavor to help raise awareness and support research to find a cure for Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA). FA is a progressvie neuro-muscular disorder which affects one in every 50,000 people. On Friday, April 4th, at 1:30 p.m., Allen School students will gather at the Mustang Trail and participate in The Walkfor-Awareness to support our student, Sam Brown, who has FA. The community is invited

to join the school and walk together to show our support. FARA, the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance was founded in 1998 by a group of families whose children were diagnosed with Friedreich’s Ataxia. FARA also partners with the MDA, and together, they support a wide range of clinical trials and research around the world. Sam’s family whole heartedly supports FARA and its efforts to slow, stop, reverse, and cure FA. Currently, there is no effective

this spring. The recent surge has propelled Allen to No. 12 in the Class A rankings. “We wanted to step up and prove ourselves,” Coach Caldwell said. “I believe we did that. We lost to (No. 1 ranked Roff) and then bounced back to beat Dewar, Maud and Tupelo. I think Tupelo is a good program. For us to beat them 3-0 in a seven-inning game is a huge step for our program.” Allen’s 4-game stretch began on March 24 with a 9-1 loss to the top-ranked Roff Tigers. Roff secured the victory in five innings. The Tigers scored 2 runs in the first inning, 4 runs in the third inning, 2 runs in the fourth inning and a final run

in the bottom of the fifth. The Mustangs went hitless but avoided a shutout. AHS managed to score 1 run in the top of the seventh inning. Nick Wallen was the losing pitcher for Allen. Wallen worked five innings and allowed 9 runs on 6 hits and 4 walks. He recorded 6 strikeouts in a losing cause. Coach Caldwell was proud of Wallen’s performance on the mound. “He pitched good enough to win,” the coach said. “But we didn’t play any defense. We made 4 errors in the game. We just did not show up defensively. We weren’t aggressive at the plate on Continued Page 8

C ountry Comments


by Bill Robinson, Publisher

This past week I found an old 1951 newspaper that had a couple of interesting articles concerning our area. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Allen Now Free Of Bond Debt Will Celebrate Friday Allen’s town government is now debt-free and is going to make that fact the occasion of a celebration Friday evening. It will be a bond-burning program by a community which is, for the first time in 41 years, entirely free of general bonded indebtedness. The oil and refinery center issued its first bonds in 1910. Other bond issues were voted later by the community, and at no time from 1910 to now has the city been free of bonded indebtedness. Perry Blue, treasurer for the past 18 years and who has filed, unopposed for a tenth term, announces the following program, to be held on the Main Street if weather permits, in the Allen High School auditorium otherwise, at 7:30. Music by Allen band. Superintendent L.R. Watson—Talk on Allen Schools. Rev. George McDow—churches and social. Ernest Hodges, vice president of the bank—Agriculture and animal husbandry. Tommy Tiernan, superintendent of Sunray refinery— Oil, gas and Industry. Perry Blue—taxes and the economic situation. The program will occupy about an hour and will conclude with burning of the bonds. —CC— The other item from 1951 was about happenings in the Gerty School. Gerty School News By Earlene Glass & Louise Battershell The juniors could not have their play Friday night because of bad weather and the electric lights going out. We were all very sorry but they reset the date for tonight. We are all hoping the weather will be fine tonight. Friday should mean a holiday for us because of a teachers’ meeting at Holdenville. Songs To The Beaus: Lotrevis to C.L.—“Why don’t you love me like you used to do?” Wanda to Charles M.—“I love you I’ll prove it in days to come.” Earlene to Wayne—“Remember me, I’m the one who loves you.” Loretta to Earl Charles—“A penny, a kiss, a penny, a hug.” Kathryn to Charles—“My heart cries for you.” Edwina L. to Paul W.—“So long it’s been good to know you.” Boys to Girls—“There’s been a change in me.” Gossip: Wanda H. has a certain sign saying “get him dead or alive for me”. She is pertaining to Charles M. . . . Son V. has started slicking down his hair with lots of gue—could it be there’s a girl in his future? There’s been a change in Son. GERTY JUNIOR HIGH NEWS BY Edwina Hendrix and Iva Ingram We are having a lot of absentees because of illness and will be glad when everyone is well and back to school again. The juniors had to postpone their play last week until last night. The eighth grade class had their class meeting last week and decided to graduate in formals, either blue or white, which is their class color. We are all glad that Mr. Crockett is feeling better. SONG TITLES— June to Denver Rogers—“My Heart Cries for You.” Louise ro Orval—“Waiat For Me.” Ruby to Buddy—“I’ve Found Somebody New.” Edwina L. to Earl Charles—“Be My Love.” Edwina H. to Bobby—“So Long, Its Been Good to Know You” GOSSIP What’s this we hear about Rudy David and June going to Parker Wednesday night with some special boys. Who were they, girls? . . . Wonder why Buddy L. goes to Non so much—we don’t think he will be going so much anymore . . .How about it Buddy? . . . Wonder why Eugene gave up Joyce all of a sudden? . . . Has Iva Ingram got her another boyfriend? We think so! . . . Why does Josephine and Shirley want to go to Atwood so much?—could it be Phillip Legg and Sonny Phillips? . . . Why does Edwina L. let Earl Charles use her compass so much? . . . Wonder why Delores gave Lonney a big valentine that said, “I Love You.” . . . Wonder why Geneva has so many pictures of boys—they couldn’t all be her’s could they? . . . Where was Edwina H., June and Theda going so fast on the tractor Sunday? They didn’t get too far, did they?

—CC— Recently a few of us were reminiscing about some of the

“fads” we enjoyed during our “growing up” days. The conservation led to other fads that we have seen or heard about in years gone by. See how many of these fads you remember . . . Hula Hoops — Although the hula hoops are thought to have made its first appearance (in wooden form) in 14th century England, it didn’t take America by storm until 1958. That’s when Wham-O, Inc., the same friendly folks who brought you the Superball and the Frisbee, released a “futuristic” plastic version and promptly sold 25 million in only four months. Jumping Beans — Americans love a good novelty item, and nobody appreciates that fact more than Mexico native Joaquin Hernandez. Since introducing the toy here in the early 1940s, Hernandez has ruled as the “King of the Jumping Beans.” A periodically recurring fad for more

than 60 years, the beans are actually moth larvae trapped in seedpods. But their mystery continues to capture the public imagination. In peak years, when the beans are really hoppin’, Hernandez has been known to sell as many as 20 million of them, employing as many as 50 people to collect, package, and export them. Ant Farms — Who knew infestation could be this much fun? Inspired by the events at an outdoor barbecue, “Uncle Milton” Levine modified a clear plastic tissue box into a prototype for ant farm. And what a prototype it was! Between 1956 and 1966, he sold some 12 million of them (ants originally not included), thanks in part to creative product placement. Levine gave away fancy, mahogany ant farms to Dick Clark and other TV personalities who kept the trinkets on their onscreen desks and, thus, in the public eye.

Bermuda Shorts — Once the uniform of British soldiers stationed in (not surprisingly) Bermuda, the shorts were first appropriated by American tourists. Then fashion magazines got involved, and Bermuda shorts became the summer office wear of the 1950s – tastefully paired with jacket and tie, of course. Pac-Man — Birth of fad: 1980; Death of fad: 1981. That was when Atari released a home version of the popular arcade game that was so bad, it’s still frequently blamed for the video-game-business crash of 1983. Unbelievably, the first perfect game of Pac-Man wasn’t played until July 1999. That honor went to a 33-year-old Florida hotsauce manufacturer named Billy Mitchell, who played Pac-Man for six hours straight to reach the 256th screen and achieve a score of 3,333,360. Leg Makeup — In 1941, the U.S. government banned

Country Comments silk stockings. Why? After Japan cut off America’s silk supply during World War II, it became apparent that parachute production outranked women’s fashion needs. Fortunately, however, the gals on the home front were a crafty bunch. Women resorted to D.I.Y. hosiery, rubbing liquid foundation onto their legs to simulate the color of hose, then using eyebrow pencils to draw a “seam” up the back. L imbo — According to Roman Catholic theology, limbo is God’s eternal waiting room – a place designed for all the folks who weren’t good enough for heaven or vile enough for hell. On the Caribbean Island of Trinidad it’s the name of a funeral dance representing the difficult passage from life to afterlife. In the late 1950s, American tourists “borrowed” the limbo and turned it into a fixture at dinner parties, beach movies, and even in rock ‘n’ roll songs. In fact, Chubby Checker’s “Limbo Rock” was the No. 9 hit song of 1962, beating out now classics like the Beach Boys’ “Surfin’ Safari.” Ouija Boards — Believe it or not, when Parker Brothers acquired the rights to the Ouija board and released its first version back in 1967, the games’ early sales trounced the company’s traditional bestseller, Monopoly. The moral of the story? When given a choice, people will choose the undead over capitalism. Rubik’s Cube — Average cost of a Rubik’s Cube, circa 1980: $6 to $10. Number of Cubes sold in 1980: approximately 4.5 million. Number of possible color combinations: 43.2 quintillion. Possibility that the Rubik’s Cube could actually drive a person crazy: pretty darn good. When Hungarian architecture professor Erno Rubik introduced his “magic cube” to America in 1980, some people feared the popular puzzler would quite seriously drive fans mad. And legitimately so. Way back in 1874, a game called the “Fifteens Puzzle” was blamed for inducing insanity in roughly 1,500 people. And while Rubik’s Cube addiction was apparently responsible for the break-up of at least one marriage, Man triumphed over Toy in this particular case. In fact, by 1983, the puzzler was considered so harmless, it got its own Saturday morning cartoon, “Rubik, the Amazing Cube.” Zoot Suits — Sometimes youth rebellion requires jus the right outfit. The zoot suit, popularized by African-American and MexicanAmerican teens during the late 1930s and early 1940s, didn’t look like your average workday attire. It had broad shoulders, a tapered waist, and baggy pants that ended in neat, pegged cuffs. All that tailoring (and all that fabric) made the ensemble a kind of defiant luxury item – a sign that the wearer wasn’t affected by Depression-era poverty, World War II fabric rationing, or disapproving looks from Mom. Telephone-Booth Stuffing — Simultaneously striking allow for both originality and anarchy, 25 South African students climbed into a telephone booth in 1959 and announced they’d set the world record for a non-existent event. Not to be outdone, college students across England, America and Canada immediately set to

work honing their skills in this not-so-toll-free sport. Some M.I.T. students tried to outwit the competition using physics, while others took a simpler route, starving themselves into more compact “units.” At the same time, British college kids bickered over whether official booth-stuffing rules required teams to be able to place a call, while their Canadian counterparts were accused of cheating for using plus-sized booths. Thankfully, they all seemed to reach a truce later that year, when everyone abandoned phone booths in favor of Volkswagens, the latest people-stuffing container of choice. G oldfish Swallowing — Or reason No. 452 why you should never let your elders claim that kids were more mature “in their day.” On March 3, 1939, Harvard freshman Lothrop Withington, Jr., touched off a firestorm of publicity – and imitators – when he swallowed a goldfish on a $10 bet. For the next three months, students sucked down goldfish in record numbers while every authority figure from the Massachusetts State Senate to the U.S. Public Health Service tried to get them to stop. The craze slowed down after many schools threatened to expel the fish eaters, but the stunt managed to remain popular enough to ensnare the next generation. The current world record, 300 fish in one sitting, was set in 1974. F lagpole Sitting — The 20th-century award for Best Center of Gravity definitely belongs to Hollywood stuntman Alvin Kelly. In 1924, Kelly sat atop a flagpole for 13 hours, inspiring copycats across the country to replicate his feat (to varying degrees of success). Kelly returned to the pole in 1929, just in time to set the world record (49 days) before the Great Depression put an end to such frivolity. Drive-Ins — Looking for a way to promote his autoparts business, Richard Hollingshead of Camden, New Jersey built the first drive-in theater in his driveway. All he needed was a sheet strung between two trees and a movie projector mounted to the hood of his car. Hollingshead patented the idea and opened a more practical version to then public in 1933, but his invention didn’t become a sensation until after World War II, when Americans had more spending money. Eight-Track Tapes — The Big Idea: improve vehiclebased listening pleasure by creating a reliable, inexpensive taped-music system. The Innovator: William Powell Lear, the man who brought you the Lear jet. (“You” in this case refers to the sizable – and good-looking – billionaire sector of our readership.) The Thrill of Victory: Eight-track tape players first became available as optional add-ons to 1966 Ford model cars. More than 65,000 new Ford owners opted in that year alone, and the medium quickly spread from in-car to in-home use. The Agony of Defeat: Eight-track sales sped along until 1974, when they ran smack into a brick wall called cassette tapes – an even more reliable and less expensive taped-music system. The last new-release eight tracks were sold in the mid-1980s. Maybe some of our readers can add to this list of fads . . . —CC—

April 3, 1948, President Truman signed into law a program that provided billions of dollars in aid to help Europe get back on its feet. Dubbed “the Marshall Plan” for Secretary of State George C. Marshall, who first announced it, the program was a massive act of compassion as well as a shrewd strategy to keep Communism at bay, support democratic governments, and build strong trading partners. The United States offered the aid not just to its former allies but to its former enemies, such as Germany. It also offered to include the Soviet Union, a proposal Joseph Stalin rejected. The Soviet dictator refused to allow Eastern European countries to participate. (Czechoslovakia’s Foreign minister publicly expressed interest in the plan, and a short time later he was found dead in front Today In History . . . At the close of World of his house.) But Western European War II, Europe lay in shamnations welcomed the ofbles. Cities and factories were shattered, business- fer.

If it was not “the most from war, but they also understood that they had to unsordid act in history”— do something to help. On Winston Churchill reserved And speaking reminiscing, here is my favorite story of the week . . . After being married for 44 years, Jerry took a careful look t this wife one day and said: “Forty-four years ago we had a small apartment and cheap car. We slept on a sofa bed and watched a ten-inch black-and-white TV. But I got to go to bed every night with a hot 25-year-old girl. “Now, I have a million-dollar home, a $45,000 car, nice big bed, and plasma-screen TV. But . . . I‘ve got to sleep every night with a 69-year-old woman. “It seems to me that you’re not holding up your side of things.” Jerry’s wife is a very reasonable woman. She told him to go out an find a hot 25-year-old girl, and she would make sure that he would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed, and watching a ten-inch black-and-white TV. —CC—

that title for the United States’ earlier Lend-Lease program—the Marshall Plan was surely an act of enormous generosity. Never before had one nation done so much to help mend a war-torn world. Other Highlights In History This Week . . . 1860—The Pont Express begins service between St. Joseph, Missouri, and Sacramento, California. 1865—Union forces capture the Confederate capital of Richmond, Virginia. 1881—The outlaw Jesse James is shot and killed in St. Joseph, Missouri, by Robert Ford, a member of his own gang. 1948—President Truman signs legislation establishing the Marshall Plan. 1973—In New York City, Motorola engineer Martin Cooper makes the first call on a portable, handheld cell phone, which he’s just invented. 1974—One of the worst tornado outbreaks in U.S. history strikes, with 148 twisters hitting thirteen states, killing 330 people.

I have been trying for several years to clear out my clothes closet. I have three closets that are filled to capacity with clothes. Every time I try to begin on it, almost every item there has memories or is something that I think I may need in the future. Many years ago, when we were in business, we had a lot of parties and attended a lot of dinners. I have kept three dinner (long and formal) dresses. I have

Ward Department Store had a special sale on white blouses. They were priced at $9.95 each and so nice that I spent $100 and bought 10 of them. A great price and I could not resist buying one of each style. Some I have not worn in years. I have summer short suits that I used to wear when I was in the kitchen for hours canning jam or jelly and they were cool to wear. I have not canned anything except a few quarts of pears in years. I have a pear tree and try to can a few jars to make cobblers for church dinners.

I have seven or eight pairs of denim slacks that I have not worn in years. I keep pushing them around in the closet. Just can’t seem to get rid of them. A few months ago the youth director of my church announced that she was going to have a garage sale to raise money to send some of our young people to summer camp. I gathered up two large boxes of clothes for that sale. She then had surgery on her foot and did not have the sale. They are still boxed in my work room.

I have clothes with Seminole Patchwork that I take to the Seminole Nation Museum in October when they have Seminole Days. The museum asks me to come, sell my book, and help in their gift shop. These clothes are kept in another closet, ready to pack and take to the show. I have kept swim suits I have not worn in years. We used to go to the lake for picnics and I wore them then. I just went in and pulled them out of the closet for the sales bags, if they ever have that garage sale, they are gone. Well, that is a start.

One Pharmacist’s View I know it’s not politically correct and not even “nice” to notice how fat someone is anymore but I was sort of fascinated by New Jersey Gov. Christie’s story following his lap band surgery nearly a year ago. He says he has already lost 100 pounds. What I mean to say is, he still looks pretty big to me. It may be harder than it would seem to lose weight when you are running for president while under constant attack by your political foes over closing a few traffic lanes. The good Governor says he had nothing to do with that and it was some underlings

doing it on their own and without his knowledge. Well, the story looks to me like his 100 lost pounds. I’m still not 100% convinced he had nothing to do with closing those lanes and I wonder about the 100 pounds. Christie is doing everything he can to clear up these matters. He just got a report in from an investigative committee that he indeed did not know anything about it (lane closures not the fat) and that he has fired everyone that participated in ordering the lanes closed. The lane

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ “If you are not among those God has chosen to be saved, you will suffer eternal punishment for your sins.” Unfortunately, this is the official teaching of many churches. Does such teaching seem just to you? Can a just God send those He has not chosen to punishment in hell without even giving them a chance to repent and be saved? John Calvin (1509-1564), taught that “God preordained…a part of the human race, without any merit of their own, to eternal salvation, and another part, in just punishment of their sins, to eternal damnation.” If I want to be saved, is there nothing I can do? Must I simply wait for God to choose and call me and if He doesn’t, then will I suffer eternally for my sins? Does it seem just or fair that

God should choose and call some and not others? No, God is not so unjust, but He wants all of us to be saved. Jesus died for everyone – “all the world,” not just for a few. Jesus said, “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:14-17) Jesus died for all. (2 Cor 5:14-15) Doesn’t “all” mean every person? God calls all to repentance and salvation by the preaching of the gospel message. (2 Thess 2:14; I Corinthians 1:21) Through the hearing of the Gospel message God gives us faith. (Romans 10:17) And, God wants every person to hears the gospel and be saved. (Mark 16:15-16) He does not desire that any person be lost but that all come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:4)

Blood Drive in Allen April 8

Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) and Allen High School are teaming up to save the lives of those in local hospitals. A blood drive will be held in the gym on Tuesday, April 8th, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Anyone who is healthy and 16 years* or older is urged to attend and donate. Each donor will receive a “FEEL BOLD” T-shirt, free health screenings and Donor Rewards Points. Blood donors can choose to forgo the T-shirt. Then, funds designated for this item will be contributed to Global Blood Fund, a nonprofit that supports struggling blood centers abroad. Donors with OBI provide every drop of blood needed by patients in Chickasaw Nation Medical Center and Mercy Hospital Ada and some 140 other medical facilities across the state.

Rabies Clinic April 16

The Allen Vet Clinic has set their Spring Rabies Clinic for Wednesday, April 16th, at the office on Highway 1. The clinic will be open from 8:00 am to noon, and from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Animals may receive their rabies vaccine for $10.

closures resulted in terrible traffic jams in an area represented by some of the politicians who wouldn’t give him political support in the last election. About that fat? I don’t know. Maybe he should step up on some public scales and invite the press. Or perhaps not. Christie’s problems sort of leave the Republicans in a mess as they look over the field of big candidates (no pun intended) for 2016. The Democrat’s front runner (Hillary) may have already sewed up the Democrat’s nomination and that is a problem for that party. As time goes by and The Affordable Health Care Act digs in, both Obama and Benghazi Hillary look a bit more tarnished. In fact, the two Bushes don’t look near so bad now as they fade into the past. In fact, a third Bush’s name (Jeb) is being floated. Some think he would make a good run but in any case his mom said she wouldn’t vote for him. But then I’m not sure the country is ready for yet another Bush. In any event I don’t think any Democrats will be riding in on Obama’s coattails. His negatives are at an all-time high and this time on a subject which younger Americans seem to know little or nothing about our Foreign Policy. Already striking out on “Obama Care” the President has recently polished up his image as a Caesar at home (governing with a pen and a telephone) with executive orders and a Chamberlain image abroad. His interactions have been very ineffective and embarrassing during the current crisis. When voters look down the road will they be

thinking of Obama’s snafus and Hillary’s Benghazi tragedies as they ponder “Bridge Gate”, courtesy of Governor Christie? Looks like in the end people will want a wide open election, not the crowning for candidates. Paging Governor Huckabee? I asked my good friend Meegan Costner, who also serves as a granddaughter, if she and I were to have a garden this year. She said yes but didn’t exactly say she would help get it ready. The weatherman has also been pretty wishy-washy this year too so it may be I will have a “late” garden this year. Anyway I hope to get out and stir up some dirt next week with or without my helper. Our first joint garden some years ago was made a lot more interesting after I found that she was like the two gardeners in the

movie “Secondhand Lion.” They planted peas, beans, and several things but it all came up corn. We had our little seed bags to serve as plant identifiers but quickly learned that naming a row to be something has nothing to do with what comes up. It’s what you actually plant that counts. I think that spring has finally crept in. At least everyone I know hopes so. Several of my neighbors have already mowed their lawn’s weeds (dandelions and dead leaves in my case). Anyway I hope you are able to get out and enjoy this great weekend. Be sure and go to church Sunday. Wayne Bullard, DPh

He organized the Corpus Christi Antique Gun Collectors Association, and the 101 Ranch Collectors Association. He was president and life time member of the Texas Gun Collectors Association (TGCA) and the 101 Old Timers Association. One of his many passions was duck and goose hunting with his 10 gauge shotgun. He enjoyed many hunting trips with his boys. He was a Mason, an active member of the Cowboy Hall of Fame, and a historical partner of the Gilcrease Museum. Jerry was raised in the Allen Church of Christ and was a long time member of the Arlington Heights Church of Christ in Corpus Christi.

Prescription Drugs by Mail From the VA You can get your prescription drugs from the Department of Veterans Affairs by mail. That’s good ... and bad. The good news: A recent study by J.D. Powers gives the VA outpatient pharmacy the highest score for customer satisfaction. The VA scored 871 out of 1,000 points for pricing, order process and customer service. The VA also made the top scores in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Clearly, getting your medications from the VA’s mail-order services can be a positive experience. But not always. The bad news: Your order isn’t as secure as stepping down the street to your local pharmacy or picking up your drugs right at the VA. A UPS driver in Maine is going to jail for taking oxycodone drugs sent from the VA’s mail order program. A fast search of Google found far too many cases of veterans’ mailed drugs being stolen around the country. In one case, a postal worker was both stealing and selling the drugs on the mail route. In Chattanooga, Tenn., a postal worker who also is a veteran on medication said his drugs, sent monthly, had been disappearing right out of the post office where he works. In Indianapolis, a postal worker was nabbed for taking drugs out of 17 packages in the VA mail-order program. In another case, a 24-year employee of the post office stole more than 2,000 pills destined for veterans. The Maine UPS driver was caught, literally, blue-handed. Authorities had put a blue dye pack in the package, which exploded in his face when he opened it. He was taking the drugs when agents came through the door. If you get your medications by mail, you can now track them. Go online to MyHealtheVet web portal.

Lady Mustangs working to add to win total The key for the 2-7 Allen softball team is to generate more scoring

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Lady Mustang softball team will be looking to improve on the current 2-7 record. However, the impressive list of opponents on the 2014 spring schedule makes the proposition quite a challenge. Coach Jeremy Strong will lead his Lady Mustangs back in action on Monday, April 7. The AHS squad will travel east to Hughes County to play the greenclad Stuart Lady Hornets. This will be the next opportunity to record win No. 3. Allen had lost twice to Stratford and Asher. The other three defeats came at the hands of Mill Creek, Wayne and Stonewall. Meanwhile, Allen’s two wins came at the expense of Bray Doyle and Vanoss. The key to winning in future games is obvious. The Lady Mustangs need to ignited the offense and generate more runs. They scored 14 runs in the win over Bray Doyle and 11 runs in the victory over Vanoss. That’s a total of 25 runs in two games. However, Allen has scored a combined 3 runs in the seven losses. They were shut out five times, scored 2 runs once and scored 1 run the other time. It’s all about offense in the spring. That is the clear lesson heading into the Allen portion of the campaign. On March 24, Allen suffered a 9-0 loss at Stonewall. The Lady Longhorns put the game away in five innings. They broke open a scoreless battle with 2 runs in the fourth inning. Stonewall followed up with a 7-run outburst in the bottom of the fifth frame to finish off Allen 8-0. Stonewall piled up 8 hits on the way to the win. Allen was limited to 3 hits – and also suffered 3 errors en route to the loss. Allen was led at the plate by Jessi Merriman with a 1-for-2 effort that included a double. Faith Caldwell and Savanna Brown were also 1-2 in the game, both stroking singles for their individual hits. “We played them well,” said Coach Strong. “But we didn’t hit the ball as well as we could have. We also had a 3-error inning in the fifth and that kind of blew up on us.” On March 25, Allen followed up with another road trip and another shutout loss. The Lady Mustangs fell 8-0 to the Stratford Lady Bulldogs. Stratford scored once in each of the first three innings. The Lady Bulldogs then plated five runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to secure the 8-0 victory. Allen was out-hit 11 to 5 in the contest. Ashley Cross provided the team’s only 2-hit performance with a pair of singles. Chelsea Wedlow (1-2), Nora Thompson (1-2) and Jessi Merriman (1-3) each

singled once to provide the other three AHS hits. “It was a lot like the Stonewall game,” said Coach Strong. “I thought we played them until we got to the fifth inning. It was a 3-0 game at that point. But then we walked a batter and they (Lady Bulldogs) had four hits in a row. They had back to back triples during that inning. It just got away from us in the fifth inning.” On March 31, the Lady Mustangs hosted the high-powered Asher Lady Indians in a softball contest at Allen. Coach Strong watched his girls bang out seven hits and score a pair of runs. However, it was not enough to take down Asher. The Lady Indians scored at least once in all six innings on the way to a 10-2 triumph. Asher plated

2 runs in the first inning, 1 run in the second inning, 2 runs in the third inning, 2 runs in the fourth, 1 run in the fifth inning, and 2 more runs in the sixth. Allen managed a pair of runs in the third inning. The hit total showed Asher piling up 15 to 7 by the Lady Mustangs. Savanna Brown was the top Allen batter with a 2-for-3 showing on a pair of singles. Sandra Rowsey was 1-for-1 with a single. Kellyn Black was 1-for-2 with a single. Taryn Wofford made the most of a 1-for-3 performance. She smashed a run-scoring double. She later came around and scored the second and final run. Meagan Beavert was 1-for-3 with a double and 1 RBI. Jessi Merriman rounded out the attack with a 1-for-3

showing. She also scored Allen’s other run. Coach Strong love to win. However, he also realizes the level of competition his team is facing on a regular basis. “We are continuing to improve,” he said. “Our defense played pretty well today (Monday) against Asher especially considering how the wind was blowing so hard. Our outfield played good defense in this weather. I believe Jessi Merriman had an all-around good game in the outfield. She recorded 5 putouts in the game.” --AT A GLANCE Mar 24 @ Stonewall Stonewall 9, Allen 0

13-1 victory over the visiting Dewar Dragons. The contest was the opposite of the Roff game, with the Mustangs being the dominant team. AHS took control with 4 runs in the bottom of the first inning. The advantage increased to 5-0 after two innings and 6-0 after three innings. Dewar finally broke up the shutout with 1 run in the top of the fourth inning. The effort closed the gap to 6-1. However, the Mustangs erupted for 8 runs in the bottom of the fourth to seal the 13-1 triumph. When Dewar failed to score in the top of the fifth inning, the game ended on the run rule. Allen finished with 10 hits against the Dragons. Tommy Peay lead the attack with a perfect 3-for-3 showing that included a pair of triples. Jake Linker and Justin Deaton also enjoyed multiple-hit performances. Linker and Deaton were both 2-for-3 at the plate. Three others added sinTy Brown and the Mustangs are currently ranked #12 gles to the attack, including in Class A. Dakota Nickell (1-2), Little Sky Frazier (1-2) and Ty Brown (1-3). Tommy Peay pitched 5 innings to earn the mound victory. Peay limited Dewar to 1 run on 1 hit and 2 walks. The sophomore standout mowed down 13 batters on strikeouts. “It was a good rebound win from the Roff game,” said Coach Caldwell. “Our bats came alive. We hit the ball real well and didn’t leave people on base. Tommy also threw a great game. He got us off on the right foot. His (pitch) location has been a lot better this year. He’s hitting his spots. When he does that he is hard to deal with.” On March 28, Allen went out and basically duplicated their previous performance. The Mustangs whitewashed the Maud 13-0 in four innings. AHS plated 4 runs in the first inning and 9 more runs in the bottom of the third. The Mustangs did not need

their at-bats in the bottom of the fourth frame. Allen freshman Ty Brown blanked the Tigers during his 4-inning mound duty. He allowed 1 hit and issued 5 walks in recording the victory. Brown notched 7 strikeouts – leaving his defensive unit to make only 5 plays over the course of the game. Offensively, AHS collected hits from 7 different batters. Tommy Peay and Josiah Jones fueled the attack with similar 3-hit performances. Peay was 3-for-3 with a triple. Jones was also 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles. “We jus t g o t J o s i a h cleared to play,” said Coach Caldwell. “He is a great addition to our team. He is a utility player who can help us in several positions. He will also help us with the bat. I am glad to have him playing with us.” Three other Allen players produced multiple-hit games against Maud. Nick Wallen and Dakota Nickell were both 2-3 with a triple each. Ty Brown was also 2-for-3 with a pair of singles. Russ Black (1-3) and Justin Deaton (1-3) rounded out the hit parade with a single each. “ We p l a y e d w e l l i n all phases,” said Coach Caldwell. “That was good defense, good pitching and we hit the ball well. It was well-rounded and that is exactly what we are looking to do.” On Monday, Allen hosted the Tupelo Tigers in a showdown of two talented teams. The Mustangs were delighted to carve out a 3-0 win over Tupelo. Tommy Peay served up a 1-hit shutout in a 7-inning outing. The sophomore pitcher walked 5 and hit 1 batter while also recording 9 strikeouts. Allen was limited to 3 runs and 5 hits. The Mustangs plated all 3 runs in the bottom of the second inning. Peay then made those tallies stand up in the

3-0 contest. Nick Wallen was 1-for-3 and had the only extra-bases hit with a double.

Mustang runners pushed to increase speed Coach Kenny Deaton eager to get his Allen track squad in high gear By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent Coach Kenny Deaton has a simple approach to his Allen Mustang track and field program.

“I want to get them stronger and faster,” he said. “I want them to improve their conditioning and their strength. I want to be sure those runners improve their speed and stamina. We don’t have many out for track so this is more about what they can do as individuals.”

Allen will have, at least for now, six athletes on the track and field squad. Justin Deaton is a junior and the ‘old man’ of the roster. He will be joined by sophomores Dalton James, Colton Browning and Gunner Holder and freshmen Jeff Deaton and Colby Eaker. “We might get more out this spring,” said Coach Deaton. “But we will be working with just these six until we add to our total. Justin Deaton will compete in two events. The junior is expected to run the 200 meter dash and the 400 meter run. Sophomore Dalton James has been slowed with a ‘turf toe’

since football season. He is expected to be cleared to run track within the next couple of weeks. Once the doctors give James the green light he’ll get busy preparing to run the 100 and 200 meter springs … and might possibly also compete in the 400. Colton Browning is another outstanding sprinter at Allen High School. The sophomore will compete in the 100, 200 and 400. “The 400 is probably Dalton’s best event,” said Coach Deaton. “He might have a chance to compete for a trip to state. He should be in the mix for state this spring.”

Lady Mustangs track team ‘small, talented’

Coach Greg Mills has 3 girls on the roster for the spring season

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent Allen High School’s Lady Mustang track and field team can be described in two words - small and talented. Coach Greg Mills has only three girls on his track team roster. The trio included senior Rio Jones, sophomore Taryn Wofford and freshman Tisha Roberts. “We have just the three girls now and that will probably be it for our track team,” the coach said. “But it is Spring and you never know what to expect. We might pick up one or two others.” Coaching track has been a roller-roaster for Coach Mills. “We had 25 girls on the team three years ago,” he said. “We have three right now.” The good news is that the Lady Mustangs on the squad are very talented in their individual events. Each one will have a chance to collect some medals during the track season - and maybe even qualify for the state track meet. “I think we’ll have our chances,” the coach said. “Taryn missed it (state qualification) by four inches. She will be looking to go to state this time. Rio Jones qualified once before in the hurdles. I think she can get back this year.” Coach Mills is also impressed with his freshman distance runner, Tisha Roberts. She is young but also has shown him some serious talent. “It should be an interesting season,” Coach Mills said. “I want to see them get in condition and see what they can do. I was very surprised, in a good way, with how they performed at our first track meet.” On March 13th, Roberts had the most successful trip to the Maysville track meet. The freshman won the gold medal in the 800 meter run. She also earned a bronze medal for third place in the mile run. Taryn Wofford came away with a fourth place finish in two events. The sophomore took fourth in the shot put and also was fourth in the discus. Rio Jones competed in one event at Maysville. The senior earned fourth place in the 100 hurdles. “I am proud of all of them,” Coach Briggs said. “I didn’t know what to expect because we had not had any time to prepare for that first one.” Allen was set to attend two more track meets this week. AHS was due to visit the Konawa meet on March 25th and then close out the week with a Friday visit to the Henryetta meet. The girls will compete in the same events as they did at Maysville. However, they will also add a couple more events at upcoming meets. The goal will be to get in track shape and then extend their performances. “Rio Jones will add the 300 hurdles,” the coach said. “Tisha Roberts will add the 2-mile run to her 800 and 1-mile. Taryn Wofford will probably just do the shot and the discus. We’ll add them soon, maybe at the Henryetta meet on Friday.” The Lady Mustangs will not attend another track meet until April 18th. They will be scheduled to travel to Checotah on that date. For now, the coach will continue to work with his girls as they prepare for future meets. However, he said the practices are not always as scheduled at this time of year. “The thing is that this is the Spring,” he said. “The kids do a lot of different things in the Spring. It is not just being on the track team. I may have them one day and then the next day they’ll be playing golf or going to an FFA event or something else. I barely get to see the kids during the Spring. You just do it. AT A GLANCE Maysville meet Thursday, March 13 • Tisha Roberts (freshman) 800 meter - 1st place 1600 meter - 3rd place • Taryn Wofford (soph) Shot Put - 4th place Discus - 4th place • Rio Jones (Senior) 100 Hurdles - 4th place This week’s track meets March 25 @ Konawa March 28 @ Henryetta

Sophomore Gunner Holder is another of the AHS track team members. Coach Deaton will test him in the sprint races – 100 and 200 – but might adjust his event list later in the spring. “I have not yet seen him run,” the coach said. “If it turns out he is not a sprinter, I’ll move him to the 400 and 800 and see how he does in those distances.” Freshman Jeff Deaton is expected to have a solid spring in the discus. The trick will be to make the transition from his perfect eighth grade performance to competing with the big boys. “He was 3-0 in winning the discus last year in the eighth grade,” says his coach/ father. “He went to Konawa, Maysville and Wetumka and won the gold medal at all three meets. Of course that was with the smaller discus they throw in junior high. He’s throwing a larger one this spring and will have to work on increasing his distance. He is throwing 90 feet now. If he can get up another 10 or 12 feet he can go to state in that event. That’s what we are working on now.” The freshman is no midget. He stands 6-1 and 170. The plan is for him to improve his technique – which will increase the distance. “I don’t know a lot about throwing the discus,” said his father. “We are learning as we go. We go on You.Tube and watch the (discus) videos. We are trying to pick up ideas and tips to improve his technique. He enjoys this event and I think he’ll have a chance to get to state. Of course he has a lot of work to do and we’ll see how that works our this spring.” The youngest Deaton will not be a one-trick Mustang. He’s also going to be counted upon to run in the 200 and 400 races. “We want him to improve his speed too,” said Coach Deaton. “That’s the plan for all of them.” The other freshman on the team is Colby Eaker. He moved into the community after attending school at Ada. Eaker will run the 200 and 400 … and might also compete in another event. “He thinks he’s a long jumper,” the coach said. “He came over from Ada where he played baseball. I know little about him … but will give him a chance to try the long jump. There’s not a lot to figure out on that one. I’ll tell him to run real fast and then jump real far. We’ll be fine if he can follow those instructions.” Coach Deaton plans to test his athletes twice this week. He was scheduled to take them to Konawa on Tuesday and then over to Henryetta on Friday. “We’ll have those two meets and then we’ll not have another one until April 18 when we got to Checotah,” he said. “We’ll get them started and see where we need to go from here.” --Allen Mustangs Track and Field squad Juniors Justin Deaton Sophomores Dalton James Colton Browning Gunner Holder Freshman Jeff Deaton Colby Eaker

Larry’s sermon was taken from Acts 2:37-41 and entitled “Be Baptized, Every One of You.�  Baptism is a confession that life has changed.  Sins have been confessed and have been forsaken.  Holiness is now our determination.  We once lived for self but now live for God.  Baptism is a profession of faith in Jesus Christ.  This was not something accomplished by our own action or goodness.  There was nothing we could do to save ourselves.  All we could do was admit  our guilt and cry out for help.
