Allen Post Office Proposes Changes

Looks like Levi Morrison brought his Star Wars basket to the Allen Easter Egg Hunt.

Approximately 40 residents of Allen gathered Wednesday noon for the Postal Service Restructuring Meeting at the local Post Office. Becky Carter, Manager of Post Office Operations, spoke to the assembled group about the proposed changes to services provided to Allen residents. Allen postal customers received a survey last month and were asked to express their opinions on proposed changes to the hours of window service at the local office. 963 surveys were mailed out and 288 were completed and returned. In 2011 a major study was conducted on potential closing of 3,800 locations nationwide. Due to heavy opposition, a post-plan was developed which would affect 13,000 offices, changing them to 2, 4 or 6-hour sites. This reduction of office hours would allow the postal service to retain locations while reducing expenses. Currently, the Allen window is open from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon, and from 1:30 to 3:45 pm. Saturday hours of operation are 9:00 to 9:30 am.

The proposed change would allow the window to open at 8:15, extending the service time by 45 minutes. The window would still close for the hour-and-half lunch and at 3:45 in the evening; Saturday hours would not change. Allen

would continue to be served by a Career Postmaster. At this time the restructuring has not been completed nor the final decision made. A final decision will be posted in seven days with a 30-day implementation expected.

C ountry Comments


by Bill Robinson, Publisher

Easter Sunday is the perfect time for families to attend church. The music and message will bless you . . . but sometimes the greatest blessing comes from a child. When Danny Dutton was in the third grade at Chula Vista, California, his homework assignment was to explain God. Here is what he wrote . . . “One of God’s main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth. He doesn’t make grown-ups, just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That way He doesn’t have to take up His valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that to the mothers and fathers. God’s second most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times beside bedtime. God doesn’t have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this. Because He hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise in His ears, unless He has thought of a way to turn it off. God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere, which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn’t go wasting His time by going over your Mom and Dad’s head asking for something they said you couldn’t have. Atheists are people who don’t believe in God. I don’t think there are any in my town. At least there aren’t any who come to our church. Jesus is God’s Son. He used to do all the hard work like walking on water and performing miracles and trying to teach the people who didn’t want to hear about God. They finally got tired of Him preaching to them and they crucified Him. But He was good and kind, like His Father, and He told His Father that they didn’t know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said, “O.K.” His Dad (God) appreciated everything that He had done and all His hard work on earth so He told Him He didn’t have to go out on the road anymore. He could stay in heaven. So He did. And now He helps His Dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones He can take care of Himself without having to bother God. (Like a secretary, only more important.) You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the time. You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there’s anybody you want to make happy, it’s God. Don’t skip church to do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach. This is wrong. And besides, the sun doesn’t come out at the beach until noon anyway. If you don’t believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can’t go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can. It is good to know He’s around you when you’re scared in the dark or when you can’t swim and big kids throw you into real deep water. But…you shouldn’t just always think of what God can do

for you. I figure God put me here and He can take me back anytime He pleases. And…that’s why I believe in God.” Have you ever heard a better Easter message? —CC— As we prepare to celebrate Resurrection Sunday, I want to share an article that a friend recently sent to me . . . “Last year, 65 new roller coasters opened around the world, adding to hundreds in existence. The top coaster in the world is reportedly the Kingda Ka at Six Flags in New Jersey. It goes from 0 to 138 miles an hour in four seconds and has a completely vertical drop. I know of only one more dramatic ride: Matthew 27 and 28, and the roller coaster of emotions connected with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I describe it as a roller coaster because I want us to experience the ups and downs of that weekend, from the depths of horror to the heights of joy. I’d like to ask you three questions: 1. Were You There When They Crucified My Lord (Mat (Matthew 27:35-39)? Experience the grief. Can you imagine the sorrow of His loved ones as they gazed at His battered body exposed on the Cross? The crosses that adorn churches today are polished and smooth. But the Romans split rough wood for Calvary. It was jagged, filled

Thread of Life by Cleo LeVally E ach country has it own Easter Eggs traditions and its own favorite stories about how those traditions began. One story tells that during the Crusades, Lady Rosalind, the daughter of the Duke of Burgundy, was forced to flee from her castle, which was under attack by a neighboring

Colored Eggs

Lord. Her husband, Lord Arno, was away fighting in Palestine. Lady Rosalind and her young children accompanied by a loyal servant, found their way to a small village in a valley hidden away in the mountains. The people there were very kind and even provided them with a house. The lady wanted

Country Comments with splinters, and perhaps crawling with insects. When the scourged backside of Christ was forced onto the Cross, the full weight of His body exposed Him to the tortures of the wood. He was bearing the ugly pain of sin for us (see Isaiah 53). 2. Were You There When They Laid Him In The Tomb (Matthew 27:57-66)? Experience the despair. Can you imagine the depression of that black weekend? His family and friends suffered multiple blows. Their dearest had died. He had died young and under torture before their very eyes. They had deserted Him and were overwhelmed, not only with grief, but with guilt. They had also lost their religion, for they had based their eternal destiny and spiritual hope on His Messiah-ship. Virtually everything in their lives had collapsed, and the blackness of despair had fallen over them like the edge of night. 3. Were You There When He Rose Up From The Grave (Matthew 18:1-10)? Experience the Joy. Can you imagine the intoxicating exuberance that dawned Easter Sunday? The Resurrection of Christ is biblically logical and theologically necessary. None of us would have invented a story like this, but as we look back on it we can see the genius of God in the plan devised from the foundation of the world. God was in Christ defeating sin and Satan, and destroying death and despair forever. No wonder the angels said, “Go and spread the news!” Can you imagine the impossibility of keeping this a secret? Marty Halyburton’s husband, Porter, was shot down during the Vietnam War, and Navy representatives came to her home to tell her he had died in action. For several days, Marty was too numb to react. Flags flew at half-staff all over town, and a grave-marker was placed in Porter’s memory in the family cemetery. Eighteen months passed, and though Marty tried to adjust to her loss, it was vey hard. Then one day, a group of military experts appeared again at her house, this time with dramatic news. Porter was alive, in relatively good condition, being held by the North Vietnamese. Marty’s emotions leaped as if on a roller coaster. But they told her to keep the information to herself for fear of reprisals against the POWs if the news got out. It was impossible to do. How do you hide the sparkle in your eyes, the bounce in your step, the smile on your face? How do you hide the sudden transformation of your personality? How do you talk to friends without blurting out the news? In the end, the Navy realized this and made it easier by officially changing Porter’s status, and Marty phoned everyone she could with the life-changing news: “He’s alive!” The joy of the Resurrection is irrepressible. You can’t keep it hidden. We should live out that joy every day; and we can do it by giving our lives without reservation to our Lord. What Jesus Christ did was very public before the entire world, but it’s very personal to each of us. In His omniscience, I believe Christ had in mind every individual in the world who needed or would ever need redemption. He was thinking of you, and today He is calling you to become His follower. He wants to forgive your sins, heal your hurts, and give you everlasting life.

Easter Quiz....

How much do you remember about the people and events of Holy Week? Here’s a little quiz to test your knowledge. The answers are Page 5 page. 1) Where did the Agony in the Garden take place? 2) Who betrayed Jesus? 3) Who denied Jesus three times? 4) Who ordered Jesus to be scourged? 5) What criminal was released instead of Jesus? 6) How many Stations of the Cross are there? 7) How many times does Jesus fall on the way to Calvary? 8) Who helped Jesus carry his cross? 9) Who wiped the face of Jesus? 10) What did the sign on the cross say? 11) Who made arrangements for the burial of Jesus? 12) Who was the first to discover that Jesus had risen?

in some way to repay the villagers. Chickens had originally been brought to Europe from Asia but had not yet reached this isolate valley. Lady Rosalind sent her servant on the long trip over the mountains to purchase some, and soon both chickens and eggs were plentiful in the village. W hen Easter came, Lady Rosalind boiled eggs and colored their shells blue, red and yellow, using dyes made from roots, berries and moss. She hid the eggs in little straw nests outside her cottage and invited the village children to an egg hunt. Soon Lady Rosalind was known as the Lady of the brightly colored eggs. When Lord Arno returned from the crusades, the noble family was happily reunited. Every Easter thereafter, Lady Rosalind sent many brightly colored eggs to the children of the village which had been so

Atwood First Baptist Although this Sunday’s weather was like January with a March wind behind it, we were glad that a good crowd turned up for church. Easter sunrise services are scheduled at 7:30 next Sunday so of course we’re hoping for much better weather by then--oh yes, and a big crowd, too. As always, you’re invited. The sunrise service will be relatively brief, and then we will return at the regular time for Sunday School at 10:00 and the worship service at 11:00. An

Easter egg hunt for the children is planned for after the morning service, which is around 12:00. James and Jake Hammonds, accompanied on guitar by Tom Spillman, sang the special this Sunday. Their selection, “Because He Lives,” was certainly appropriate to the season. Rev. Karch’s Palm Sunday message was about Jesus’ last week before his crucifixion and was from Matthew 21:2-11 and Matthew 26:1-46. On the first day of that week

people were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” waving palm branches, and making a carpet of their garments for him. Before the end of the week the crowds were calling for Jesus’ death on the cross. These scripture passages tell about part of that eventful week, and there are several lessons we can glean from it. Judas had spent time with Jesus, had heard his teaching, had seen the miracles and knew that Jesus is the Son of God. Yet, he left Jesus and the disciples at the Passover table and took the money when it was offered. After Judas left, Jesus established the Lord’s Supper, a sacrament that is observed in Christian churches to this day. Peter and the other disciples said that they would never deny Jesus. Yet, when faced that night with Jesus’ capture and the scrutiny of the crowd in the courtyard, Peter did exactly as Jesus said he would—he denied Jesus three times. Yes Peter, like the other disciples, was human and he was overwhelmed by the situation he

faced. Sometimes it seems that the whole world is stacked against you, but if you get with God at these times others will get with you. The evening of His capture, Jesus prayed for three hours in order to get through the things he was facing. Meanwhile Peter slept. He was willing, but the flesh is weak. If Jesus needed to pray, think how much more we need to pray about the things we must deal with. It is an understatement to say that Jesus didn’t want to go through what he knew was coming, but He prayed that God’s will would be done. Thinking of all the people who would spend eter-

nity in hell if he didn’t go through with it, Jesus loved us enough to see it through. Much, much more was going on that night than the world could understand. For example, when Peter cut off the ear of one of the guards with a sword Jesus replaced the man’s ear and rebuked Peter. Then he explained that God would send over ten thousand angels to come to his aid if he asked. However, He said, that would mean that scripture would not be fulfilled. This Easter season we celebrate anew that Jesus chose to go forward with fulfilling that scripture!

Update from Chief Holcomb

Hello and thank you for reading this brief little article. It’s been a while since I have written anything to go into the paper. It’s been busy around here and as soon as you think you’re getting caught up you find out you’re still running behind. I wanted to take a moment to tell everyone thank you for the well wishes when I was sick and for the well wishes for my father and family. It’s the small things like that that make living in our town a little more comfortable. I wanted to remind you all that due to the way prescription drugs are being diverted it is the policy of this department not to do any reports on stolen medication. I know that not everyone is selling their prescriptions, I also know that the majority of people in

town are honest law abiding citizens. However if your pills are stolen, especially more than once and you’re coming to us wanting reports to get more scripts, then there’s a problem. The only way we can ensure that these drugs aren’t going into the wrong hands is to stop doing the reporting and allowing these scripts to be refilled. I will not argue with people over whether or not we are going to do a report. It’s just easiest for you to realize no amount of fussing or having your doctor’s office call is going to change that. I have been able to work with a lot of people over the past few years getting properties cleaned up. I was asked what it hurts to allow empty run down homes and trailer houses on a property. Well, it is a place for

Rites held for Frances Boyd Frances Louise Jackson Boyd, 87, passed away at home on Saturday, March 23, 2013, the way she lived — surrounded by her children, family, and friends. Frances was born on August 6, 1925 in Clayton, Oklahoma to John Marion and Claire Elizabeth (Thompson) Jackson. Frances was a devoted wife and mother who committed her days to caring for her children, and sharing her talents and blessings with family, neighbors, and friends.

She is also survived by 15 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, and close friends.

ment followed at 4:00 p.m. at the Allen City Cemetery in Allen, Oklahoma. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the American Cancer Society.

Vicki Adams, Recipient of the Tad Lucas Memorial Award

\by Judy Goodspeed Every year during rodeo weekend at the National C o w b o y a n d We s t e r n Heritage Museum cowboys and cowgirls are recognized for their contributions to the sport of rodeo. In October of 2012, Stuart Oklahoma’s own Vicki Adams was awarded the prestigious Tad Lucas Memorial Award. Tad Lucas began her rodeo career in 1917 competing in trick riding, bronc riding, steer riding and relay racing. For three consecutive years Lucas won the $10,000 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Trophy at Madison Square Garden. Lucas rode her last bronc in 1958 at Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1968 she was inducted into the Rodeo Hall of Fame, becoming the first cowgirl to receive that honor. Lucas served as the director of the Rodeo Historical Society for

the couple formed one of the best specialty acts in the business.

Spring Break in Oklahoma has been a “tricky wicket” this year. One Allen family seeking a good ski slope for their family found some tall mountains. How tall were they? Well, at least three of them (the people not the hills) got altitude sickness and had to find oxygen bottles. My family, not being much smarter, sought the spring break climate

of Branson. Not only are the hills sort of short over there but they are reportedly alive with the sound of music. The last thing I grabbed going out the door to get into my daughter Lesli’s overloaded Ford was my sunglasses. It was, after all,

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ Is Jesus pleased that there are many different churches and many different faiths? Is He happy that those who claim to follow Him are separate into different religious bodies? Have you not heard someone give thanks that there are many different churches or faith so we can each have one that pleases us? Please do not be deceived, Jesus is not pleased that His followers are so divided! He prayed that those who believe in Him would “be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us.” (John 17:20-21) The Apostle Paul wrote “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you

all.” (Eph 4:4-6) Also we are instructed to “note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.” (Romans 16:17) Considering that (1) Jesus prayed that His followers would be one as He and the Father are one, that (2) there is one faith and that (3) we must avoid those who cause division, it is clear that God does not approve of His people being divided. Perhaps you have heard someone argue that unity is not possible. Of course, with God, it is possible. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit have unity and work in unison. Division, dissensions and factions are works of men controlled by the flesh. (Gal 5:1921) Division is not caused by men obeying the teaching of Jesus but when we depart from those teachings. If all of us would submit in obedience to our head and savior, Jesus Christ, honoring His teaching, His plan of salvation, His organization and names for the church, His system of worship, etc. etc., we would be united. Yet, like Israel of old, many say, “That is hopeless! So we will walk according to our own plans, and we will every one obey the dictates of his evil heart.” (Jeremiah 18:12)

a bright and shiny day. That was in Oklahoma. I didn’t need my deluxe Walmart glasses in Missouri, however. The cold north winds soon blew out the light of the sun, ushering in an ugly looking bunch of winter clouds— clouds that would soon dump a load of snow on spring-breakloving vacationers. One day of Silver Dollar City pretty much did me this time and I retired to my less than sumptuous digs at the Castle Rock Hotel that also hosts this humongous water slide park—all located indoors and kept at 84F (so they claimed). The next day I may have been the only 78 year old man going down the killer tube or the rushing river with a bunch of people whose average age was about four. For some reason I felt pretty much at home—intellectually. As it turned out water-sliding with 4 year olds was a pretty good thing to be doing as the snow began to pile up outside. I sat around a lot in that water park and at times just baby-sat with my street clothes on. This little boy came up carrying a life jacket. Looking me right in the eye he said, “Put this on me.” I did so and asked him, “Who do I look like, your grandpa?” He looked me up and down and said, “Yeah.” Of course there isn’t a level spot in Branson either to park or drive so that slick night when Les and I decided to go out and find a steak no one would go with us. There were problems both driving and parking but it wasn’t as bad as you might think. The City had knocked itself out clearing streets and parking lots and by the next morning there was not a street or parking lot in Branson hosting any snow. They had cleared it all away.

Lady Mustangs Drop Calvin in 5 Innings Allen girls get break before vacisty action Tuesday at Stratford

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent

The Allen Lady Mustangs will taken an ‘unscheduled’ break in slow-pitch softball action this week. Coach Jeremy Strong’s AHS girls will not be playing in the annual Stonewall softball tournament this weekend. “We were supposed to play in the Stonewall tournament but won’t be going down there,� said Coach Strong. “We have a numbers problem and don’t have enough to be in that tournament. We have several different things the girls are attending and also have the parent-teacher conference. So we’ll just use the time to practice as much as we can with the girls we have available right now.� The Lady Mustangs will return to softball competition on Tuesday. That’s when Allen will travel to Stratford to play the Lady Bulldogs in varsity action. Earlier this week, Allen participated in a 3-team softball event at Vanoss. Joining the Lady Mustangs and the Vanoss Lady Wolves in Tuesday afternoon games were the Calvin Lady Bulldogs. Allen squared off against the Calvin girls in the first game of the day. The Lady Mustangs

pounded out a 10-2 victory over the Hughes County opponent. Calvin was limited to only one hit in the five-inning contest. Allen rocketed ahead 9-0 in a wild first inning. The Lady Mustangs added one more run in the bottom of the second inning en route to the 10-2 run-rule victory. Seven AHS players provided the 11-hit offensive attack. Here are the individual highlights for the Lady Mustangs: Tosha Deatheridge, 2-2, with 1 run scored Savanna Brown, 2-2, with 1 run scored and a double

Jodee Miller, 2-2, with 1 run scored Tessa Black, 2-3, with 2 runs scored and a double Erin Warren, 1-3, with 1 run scored and a double Ashley Cross, 1-3, with 1 run scored Jessi Merriman, 1-3, with 1 run scored “It was a good win for us,� said Coach Strong. “They (Lady Mustangs) swung the bats well and put the ball in play. We made Calvin make defensive plays and they didn’t always make those plays.� Coming off that one-sided win,

the Allen girls suddenly went from the hunters to the hunted. In Game 2, the Lady Mustangs were beaten 12-0 in a threeinning, run-rule loss. The Vanoss Lady Wolves collected 6 hits while Allen was limited to only two. Jodee Miller was 1-1 at the plate and Jessi Merriman was 1-2. After the game, Coach Strong summed up the loss in simple terms. “We hit it right at them and they made the plays,� he said. “But we didn’t make the plays and that is what happened!�

Atwood Church of the Nazarene Sunday was a cool day to welcome in the spring and Easter season. Friday night at 7:00 the Holdenville Ministrial Alliance will be holding a “Good Friday� service at our church. We want to invite everyone to attend. Easter morning we will have an evangelist, Rev. Adams from Florida a speaking. During our service Sunday Lauren Mudd sang our special “Jesus Loves Me.� We always enjoy our young people participating. Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from Isaiah 50: 4-11 and entitled “Moving forward with determination.� I am determined to follow the voice of God. There are countless voices today crying “this is the way!� There are numerous religions which all claim to be “the way.� Where does one go to find the voice of God? The Bible has proven itself to be the voice of God to millions of people over thousands of years. If indeed the Bible is the Word of God, then we owe it to ourselves to become acquainted with it. We too can find the strength that Jesus found. We too can find direction for our lives and comfort for our souls. What kept Jesus moving forward when mocked, beaten and humiliated? His determination to follow the will of God at all costs. His realization that His life and obedience mattered. He chose to live life with “eternity in view.� It was not easy for him. It will not be easy for us. His choice to live for eternity made an eternal difference, so will ours. Like Jesus, I will follow with all my heart. There are many who claim to love God but show little evidence. They live for themselves and for the moment. There are those who follow the example of Jesus and live for something more. They choose to walk in the light. They have confidence in their eternal destiny. Those who refuse to follow live very differently. They face an eternity of torment. Every year we have a Garage Sale to help with the activities of our youth. This year it is planned for Saturday, April 6th, from 8-2. Hope to see you there.

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Mustangs opened a 6-game stretch last Monday with a thrilling 10-inning victory over the Vanoss Wolves. Coach Stephen Caldwell’s Mustangs closed the stretch this past Monday with a runrule victory over the Konawa Tigers. Besides the bookend wins, Allen suffered four losses during the span. The action began last Monday with a 3-2 win over Vanoss. The 10-inning victory came in the opening round of the Allen Baseball Festival. Allen broke a 2-2 tie with the game-winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning. Tommy Peay opened the threat with a single. Peay then stole second base. Tre’ Stick followed with a sacrifice to move Peay to third base. Conner Johnson came up third and put down a suicide squeeze bunt to the right side. Peay was off on the pitch and went sliding home safely to be the throw from the pitcher who fielded the bunt. “That suicide squeeze won us the game 3-2 in 10 innings,” said Coach Caldwell. “It was pretty exciting to win it that way.” Tre’ Stick was the workhorse on the mound. The senior started the game and pitched all 10 innings to earn the victory.

Stick allowed 2 runs on 6 hits, 2 walks and hit 2 batters. He recorded 5 strikeouts during the game. Here are the Allen hitters in the game: Thirkiel Wedlow, 2-3 Tommy Peay, 2-4, with 1 RBI Tre’ Stick, 1-3 Conner Johnson, 1-4, with a triple and 1 RBI Nick Wallen, 1-4 with double Matt McCarn, 1-4 In the second game of the festival, Allen did not far nearly so well. The Mustangs were blanked 13-0 by the Colbert Leopards in a game that lasted only three innings. Colbert led 4-0 after one inning, 12-0 after two winnings and 13-0 in three. Nick Wallen was the losing pitcher for AHS. He worked 3 innings and 13 runs on 8 hits and 4 walks and did not record a strikeout. The only two hits for the Mustangs were from Tommy Peay (1-2) and Zack Conley (1-2). On Tuesday, Allen went to Weleetka and battled the Outlaws in a rematch game. “We had beaten then 5-4 at our place,” said Coach Caldwell. “They beat us 5-4 at their place on Tuesday! I guess they paid us back for our earlier win!” Allen’s losing pitching was Shawn Rolen, who went the entire 7 innings. Rolen was touched for 5 runs, 4 hits and 5 walks. He fanned 7 batters in a losing cause. Allen had four hitters in the game. Tommy Peay was the leader with a 3-4 performance that included 2 doubles. Conner Johnson was 2-3 with 2 RBI. Thirkiel Wedlow was 1-2 with 1 RBI and Nick Wallen was 1-3. On Thursday, Allen went to Asher and lost a 9-1 decision to the AHS Indians. Three different Mustangs were pressed into pitching duty. Nick Wallen started and worked 3 innings. He allowed 7 runs on 5 hits, 3 walks and hit 2 batters. Wallen recorded 2 strikeouts. Tommy Peay worked 1 inning and did not allow any runs, hits or walks – nor did he record any strikeouts. Conner Johnson came on last and worked 2 innings. The senior allowed 2 runs on 2 hits with 0 walks. He recorded 1 strikeout. Allen’s 3-hit offensive attack included Matt McCarn going 1-2 with 1 RBI, Zack Conley going 1-2 and Tommy Peay going 1-3. On Friday, Allen went to Oklahoma City to play the Coleman Wildcats at the Bricktown Ballpark. The experience was wonderful despite the final score being a 9-7 loss by the Mustangs. Coleman struck for 2 runs in the first inning, 6 runs in the third inning and 1 run in the sixth inning. Allen plated a pair of runs in the fourth inning, one run in the sixth inning and 4 more runs in the bottom of the seventh. “We closed it to a 2-0 game in our last at-bats,” said Coach Caldwell. “We put a scare in them but just came up a little short.” The Mustangs outhit Coleman 8-6 in the loss. Conner Johnson was the star at the plate with a 3-4 showing that included 4 RBI. Tommy Peay was 2-3 with 2 RBI. Three others added one hit each, including Thirkiel Wedlow (1-3) with 1 RBI, Matt McCarn (1-3) with 2 runs scored, and Nick Wallen (1-3) with 1 run scored.

Allen’s pitching featured two Mustangs. Tommy Peay worked the first 3 innings and into the fourth inning. He was charged with 7 runs, 4 hits, 3 walks and hit 2 batters. Peay recorded 2 strikeouts. Nick Wallen worked 4 innings of relief. He allowed 2 runs on 2 hits and 3 walks. He recorded 2 strikeouts. Allen’s 2-run loss extended the losing streak to 4 straight games. On Monday, Allen was back in action hosting the Konawa Tigers. The Mustangs rebounded to pound out a 10-2 win in five innings. Tommy Peay was the offensive leader for Allen. The freshman slugger was 2-2 with a single and a solo home run. Peay’s first-ever 4-bagger sailed over the fence in left center. “He is our leadoff hitter,” said Coach Caldwell. “He came up in the first inning and worked to a full count. He then hit the next pitcher over the fence for a home run. I hope we see a lot more of those from this freshman.” Zack Conley was 2-3 at the plate. He was joined by the following Mustangs: Matt McCarn (1-3), Conner Johnson (1-1) with 2 sacrifices, Little Sky Frazer (1-2) with 2 runs scored, and Drew Back (1-2). Allen’s pitching included two Mustangs. Shawn Rolen started and worked 4 innings. He allowed 2 runs, 4 hits and 2 walks and struck out 3 batters. Tommy Peay worked the last inning and allowed 0 runs on 1 hit and 0 walks. He was credited with 1 strikeout. “I think our team has been tested in every game over the last two weeks,” said Coach Caldwell. “We have been playing a lot of good teams lately. I told our kids that we are one inning away from being a good ball club. We’ve been having that one bad inning that has been killing us. We have been playing good ball in almost all the other innings. If we can work to eliminate a bad inning in each game we’ll start winning some of those games.” Looking ahead, Allen will play at Vanoss this Friday. The Mustangs will be at home Monday against Tupelo and then welcome Stratford to town on Tuesday. --AT A GLANCE Monday @ Allen Festival Allen 3, Vanoss 2 Vanoss - 010 002 000 0 (2-6-2) Allen – 000 011 000 1 (3-8-2) --Monday @ Allen Festival Colbert 13, Allen 0 Col – 481 – (13-8-0) All – 000 – (0-2-4) --Tuesday @ Weleetka Weleetka 5, Allen 4 Allen 102 010 0 – (4-7-2) Wel – 200 120 x – (5-4-1) --Thursday @ Asher Allen 1, Asher 9 All – 010 000 – (1-3-5) Ash – 133 002 – (9-7-2) --Friday @ Bricktown Coleman 9, Allen 7 Col – 206 001 0 – (9-6-3) All – 000 201 4 – (7-8-4) --Monday @ Allen Allen 10, Konawa 2 Kona - 000 02 – (2-5-3) Allen - 310 15 – (10-8-0)

Candidates ............. from Page 1

Rhonda Skelton, incumbent, has been an Allen resident for the past 31 years. She and husband Larry moved here from Denver City, Texas when their oldest daughter was just 6-months old; their next three daughters were born here. The three eldest, Amber, Lacey and Lorissa, are AHS graduates, and daughter Beyla is a senior this year. Several years ago they were joined by her father, Hardy Tinsley, and the family grew even more when Lacey married Chuck Wofford and Lorissa married Corby King. The Skeltons have three grandchildren, Shayla, Owen and Tinsley Wofford. R honda is a graduate of Odessa [Texas] High School and currently works for the Chickasaw Nation as Supervisor for eight WIC Clinics. She began her career seven years ago as a Nutrition Educator and cross-trained in other areas. She states, “This has been

a wonderful growth experience as well as rewarding, helping families provide good nutrition to their family.” Rhonda holds numerous certifications and has undergone extensive training for her position with the Nation. The Skeltons also own, and Larry runs, Skelton’s Dive-In on Highway 1. When asked why she wishes to continue to serve on the Allen City Council, Rhonda said “I have been on the City Council for many years and have seen much growth and improvement to our community. I think, until you sit on the board, you do not realize the progress that is being made and the roadblocks that may come up. I welcome and encourage everyone to attend the meetings to get a better understanding of processes and procedures. “I look back on when I was first approached to fill an empty seat in my Ward until the next election. I had no interest and had “my opinion” of things “that weren’t getting done.” My daughter overheard me talking to someone that was telling me the reasons I should give it a chance and she said to me ‘Mom, you should at least try it until election.’ “At that moment I thought to myself what message am I

sending to my girls if I won’t take this opportunity to make a difference in the community that we have made our home and raised them. “I took the approach that it would be a good learning experience and I continue to learn at every meeting. I feel satisfied when I know we accomplish a goal we set. I feel frustration when it takes so long to go through the proper procedures to get some things done. “My hopes and dreams is that our community will always be safe and the businesses will continue to thrive. Our children will be provided with a good education, with a strong connection to Allen even if

AHS Blood Drive April 9th Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) invites all local area residents to donate blood this April at the upcoming blood drive hosted by Allen High School. The blood drive will be held from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 9th, at 201 N Denver Street. By donating blood, donors can feel good about helping to save someone else’s life. As an added bonus, all blood donors will receive an OBI T-shirt, free health screenings and Donor Reward Points. However, if blood donors choose to forgo the donor appreciation item, funds designated for this item will be directed to our partnering organization, Global Blood Fund (GBF). Global Blood Fund and Oklahoma Blood Institute both share a common goal, to make blood available to those in need. Of those eligible to donate blood in the U.S., only about ten percent actually do, despite the quick and beneficial donation process. Giving blood only takes about an hour and one single donation can save up to three different lives. All healthy adults, 16 years and older* are encouraged to make blood donations. Donations can be made every 56 days. One in every seven people entering a hospital will need blood and every two seconds someone is in need of blood. Since there is no substitute for human blood, supplies must constantly be renewed. Although those with O-negative type blood are strongly encouraged to donate, Oklahoma Blood Institute welcomes all donor participation in the Allen High School blood drive. Oklahoma Blood Institute manages the life-saving donations from more than 209,000 individuals each year and is the ninth largest, non-profit blood center in America.

Absentee Voting Friday & Monday Registered voters in Pontotoc County who want to vote by absentee ballot in next Tuesday’s Town of Allen Municipal General Election have missed the deadline to apply for a ballots to be mailed to them, the Pontotoc County Election Board said today. “They aren’t out of luck, however,” the Election Board said. Voters who want to cast absentee ballots still can do so at the County Election Board office on Friday and Monday before every election. A two-member bipartisan Absentee Voting Board will be on duty to assist In-Person Voters from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Friday, March 29 th, and Monday, April 1st, 2013. I n-person absentee voters fill out an application form when they get to the polling place located at the Election Board Office, 131 W 13th Street, Ada. They are not required to state a reason for voting. They are required to swear that they have not voted a regular mail absentee ballot and that they will not vote at their polling place on Election day.

The Absentee Voting Board verifies the voter’s registration information, then issues the voter a ballot. The voter marks the ballot in a voting booth and puts it in the voting device. It is very much like voting at the regular polling place. Contact the County Election Board if you have any questions, the telephone number is 580-332-4534.

Egg Hunt Cold but Successful

Emerson Bulen braved the cold weather to find her share of the Easter Eggs this past Saturday at the Allen Chamber of Commerce’s annual event.

It was a smaller than normal group that braved Saturday’s damp, cold weather to hunt Easter eggs at the Allen Chamber of Commerce’s annual Buck Gilmore Memorial Egg Hunt, but those that did came away with money in their pockets. All hidden eggs were worth cash prizes, ranging from 10¢ to $5. Lucky winners of the $5 prize eggs were Cheyenne Alexander in the older division, and 4-year old Emerson Bulen in the pre-school division. Other $1, $2 or $3 egg winners in the kindergarten thru 3rd grade division were Rhyan Bergquist, Heath Frederick, Cheyene McCarn and Beckett Wells. In the younger class of hunters, winners included Ryleigh Tate, Ronin Jones, Lauren Lawler and Ty O’Daniel. Special thanks to all those that assisted with the event. Organizing the hunt was Debbie Rinehart; workers included Dianna Brannan, Charles and Betty Speir, LeaAnn Wells, Alycia Evans, and members of the Allen sorority, Jennifer Smith, Lyn Anderson, Tammy Frederick and Cindy Davis.
