Fire Destroys Woodward Home

The home of Calem and Latisha Woodward, located on County Road 3669, was totally destroyed by fire Sunday evening, February 2nd. The call for assistance came into the Allen Fire Department at 5:43 p.m. The local department was called for water support and four men responded with the tank truck and brush rig. Main department on scene was the Ada Fire Depart-

ment. Also assisting was the Happyland VFD with a deuce and brush rig. Actual cause of the fire, which started in the living room, is undetermined at this

Today In History Ronald Wilson Reagan, born February 6, 1911, in Tampico, Illinois, became the nation’s fortieth president at a time when many said that America’s best days were behind us, that the future would be one of fewer opportunities. He spent much of his presidency (1981-89)reminding Americans, again and again, that this country is still a land of boundless potential, a beacon of freedom and hope for the world. History is a ribbon, always unfurling. History is a journey. And as we continue our journey, we think of those who traveled before us . . . and we see and hear again the echoes of our past: a general falls to his knees in the hard snow of Valley Forge; a lonely president paces the darkened halls and ponders his struggle to preserve the Union; the men of the Alamo call out encouragement to each other; a settler pushes west and sings a song, and the song echoes out forever and fills the unknowing air. It is the American sound. It is hopeful, big-hearted, idealistic, daring, decent, and fair. That’s our heritage, that’s our song. We sing it still. For all our problems, our differences, we are together as of old. We raise our voices to the God who is the author of this most tender music. And may He continue to hold us close as we fill the world with our sound—in unity, affection, and love—one people under God, dedicated to the dream of freedom that He has placed in the human heart, called upon now to pass that dream on to a waiting and hopeful world. --Ronald Reagan, second inaugural address AMERICAN HISTORY PARADE 1788 Massachusetts becomes the sixth state to ratify the Constitution. 1862 The Union wins its first major victory in the Civil War, with the capture of Ford Hood on the Tennessee River. 1899 The Senate ratifies the treaty ending the SpanishAmerican War. 1911 Ronald Reagan, the fortieth U.S. president, is born in Tampico, Illinois. 1971 Apollo 14 astronaut Alan Shepard hits three golf balls on the moon. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY . . . My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people; those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition there. —CC— I have found that the older I get the more interested I am in quickly turning to the obituary page of the newspaper. This past week I found a very interesting obituary. Although I did not know the man, I found his story remarkable. Hiroo Onoda 1922-2014 The Japanese Soldier Who Refused To Surrender When Japan formally surrendered to the Allied powers on Sept. 2, 1945, World War II was over – but not for Hiroo Onoda. The Japanese army lieutenant, stationed on the Philippine island of Lubang, had been given clear orders a few months earlier: Stay and fight. He did just that for another 29 years. Hiding out in the jungle, he raided villages for rice and meat, sometimes killing locals he assumed were enemy combatants. In 1974, he was finally persuaded to give up his guerrilla campaign, becoming the last World War II combatant to surrender to Allied forces. When Onoda returned to Japan, reporters asked him what he’d been thinking about the past 30 years. “Carrying out my orders,” he replied. Onoda joined the army in 1942 and was singled out for special training in guerrilla warfare. Before he left home, he persuaded his mother to give him the family’s hara-kiri dagger, promising to disembowel himself if captured, said The Times (U.K.). U.S. forces quickly captured Lubang in 1945, killing or capturing most of his comrades. The young lieutenant was among a tiny group that hid in the jungle and vowed to keep fighting. When the last of his comrades died in a gun battle with Philippine police in 1972, Onoda’s belief was reinforced “that the war was still on,” said The Washington Post. The Japanese government dropped leaflets to persuade Onoda to come out of hiding, but he dismissed them as Allied propaganda. Then in 1974 he encountered Japanese student Norio Suzuki, who had gone in search of Onoda. “The lieutenant rejected Suzuki’s pleas to go home, insisting he was still awaiting orders,” said The New York Times. He yielded only after Suzuki returned with his former commander, who formally relieved the emaciated soldier of duty. Onoda was greeted as a hero back in Japan, but was shocked at the changes to his land of paper and wood. Craving isolation, he became a rancher in Brazil. In 1984, he returned to Japan to set up a wilderness survival training camp for young Japanese. “Too much concrete and cleanliness,” he said, “makes for weak children.” —CC— Another interesting item I read this week is worth sharing ... Thomas Watson’s Rules of Contentment Thomas Watson, the most quotable of the Puritans, wrote a wonderful book entitled The Art of Divine Contentment:

An Exposition of Philippians 4:11. In Chapter 14, condensed and adapted below, Watson gave his “Christian Directory”, listing his rules of contentment. Rule 1: Advance faith. All our disquiets issue from unbelief. O set faith a-work! It is the property of faith to silence our doubtings, to scatter our fears, to still the heart when the passions are up. Faith works the heart to a sweet serene composure. It is not having food and raiment, but having faith, which will make us content. Faith

that he does not much care whether he has anything else. R ule 3: Get a Humble Spirit. The humble man is the contented man. He does not say his comforts are small, but his sins are great. He thinks it is mercy he is out of hell, therefore he is contented. A proud man is never contented; his is one that has a high opinion of himself, therefore under small blessings is disdainful, under small crosses impatient. The humble spirit is







sucks the honey of contentment out of the hive of the promise. Rule 2: Labor for Assurance. He who can say, “I know whom I have believed” – that man has enough to give his heart contentment. If any thing in the world is worth laboring for, it is to get sound evidences that God is ours. If this be once cleared, what can come amiss? No matter what storms I meet, so that I know where to put in for harbor. He that has God to be his God is so well contented with his condition

the contented spirit; if his cross be light, he reckons it the inventory of his mercies; if it be heavy, yet he takes I upon his knees, knowing that when his estate is worse, it is to make him better. R ule 4: Keep a Clear Conscience. Contentment is the manna that is laid up in the ark of a good conscience. Oh, take heed of indulging any sin! It is as natural for guilt to breed disquiet as for putrid matter to breed vermin. Would you have a quiet heart? Get a smiling conscience. Rule 5: Learn to Deny Yourselves. Look well to your affections, bridle them in. Do two things: Mortify your desires; moderate your delights. R ule 6: Get Much of Heaven into Your Heart. Spiritual things satisfy; the more of heaven is in us, the less earth will content us. He that has once tasted the love of God, his thirst is much quenched towards sublunary things; the joys of God’s Spirit are heart-filling and heart-cheering joys; he that has these, has heaven begun in him. Seek those things which are above. Fly aloft in your affections, thirst after the graces and comforts of the Spirit; the eagle that flies above in the air, fears not the stinging of the serpent. R ule 7: Look Not So Much on the Dark Side of Your Condition, as on the Light. The pillar of cloud had its light side and dark; look on the light side of the estate. Suppose you are in a lawsuit, there is the dark side; yet you have some land left, there is the light side. You have sickness in your body, there is the dark side; but grace in your soul, there is the light side. You have a child taken away, there is the dark side; your husband lives, there is the light side. Look on the light side of your condition, and then all your discontents will easily disband; do not pore upon your losses, but ponder upon your mercies. Rule 8: Consider in What a Posture We Stand in the World. We are soldiers; a soldier is content with anything though he has not his stately house, his rich furniture, his soft bed, his full table, yet he does not complain. We are pilgrims, in the world but not of the world. We are beggars at heaven’s gate, begging this day for our daily bread. R ule 9: Let Us Often Compare Our Condition. Let us compare our condition with others; and this will make us content. Am I in prison? Was not Daniel in a worse place in the lion’s den? Do I live in a mean cottage? Read of the primitive saints, that they wandered in sheep and goat skins, of whom the world was not worthy. Let us compare our condition with Christ’s upon earth. What a poor condition was He pleased to be in for us; for you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor. Let us compare our condition with what it shall be shortly. God may presently seal a warrant for death to apprehend us; and when we die, we cannot carry estate

with us: honor and riches descent not into the grave, why then are we troubled at our outward condition? Rule 10: Do Not Bring Your Condition to Your Mind, but Bring Your Mind to Your Condition. The way for a Christian to be contented, is not by raising his estate higher, but by bringing his spirit lower; not be making his barns wider, but his heart narrower. Rule 11: Study the Vanity of the Creature. The world is like a shadow that declines; it is delightful, but deceitful, promising more than we find. The world may be compared to ice, which is smooth but slippery. Rule 12: Get Fancy Regulated. The water that springs out of the rock drinks as sweet as if it came out of a golden chalice. Things are as we fancy them. Ever since the Fall, the fancy is distempered; God saw that the imagination of the thoughts of his heart were evil. Fancy looks though wrong spectacles. Pray that God will sanctify your fancy. Could we cure a distempered fancy, we might soon conquer a discontented heart. Rule 13: Consider How Little Will Suffice Nature. Christ taught us to pray for our daily bread. Nature is content with a little. Not to thirst or to starve is enough. Having food and raiment let us be content. Rule 14: Believe the Present Condition is Best for Us. A wise Christian has his will melted into God’s will. God is wise, God knows which is the fittest pasture to put His sheep in; sometimes a more barren ground does well, whereas rank pasture may rot. Did we believe that condition best which God doth parcel out to us, we should cheerfully say, “The lines are fallen in pleasant places.” R ule 15: Do Not Too Much Indulge the Flesh.

The flesh is a worse enemy than the devil, it is a bosomtraitor; an enemy within. O let it not have the reins! Martyr the flesh! Keep it under! Put its neck under Christ’s yoke, stretch and nail it to His cross. Rule 16: Meditate Much on the Glory Which Shall Be Revealed. There are great things laid up in heaven. It is but awhile and we shall be with Christ, bathing ourselves in the fountain of love; we shall never complain of wants and injuries anymore. The hope of this is enough to drive distempers from the heart. Blessed be God, it will be better. R ule 17: Be Much in Prayer. Is any man afflicted? Let him pray. Is any man discontented? Let him

pray. When the heart is filled with sorrow and disquiet, prayer lets out the bad blood. Prayer is a holy spell to drive away trouble; prayer is the unbosoming of the soul, the unloading of all our cares in God’s breast; and his ushers in sweet contentment. Paul could be in every state content, yet it was through Christ strengthening him. —CC— And last of all, my favorite story of the week from Lorene Morris . . . As U.S. tourists in Israel, my husband and I were sitting outside a Bethlehem souvenir shop, waiting for fellow tourists. An Arab salesman approached us, arm loaded with belts. After an impassioned sales talk yielded no results, he asked where

Revival Scheduled for First Baptist Church of Allen

You’re formally invited to the First Baptist Church of Allen, as we have scheduled February 16-19 as a time in which we will seek revival. Much has been said about revivals. Men have studied the great revivals and awakenings of the past, trying to discern if a particular formula could be used to produced spiritual renewal. Today, many still attempt different formulas to manufacture a revival, often only producing spiritual placebos. Ernest Gordon was a British soldier in World War II who was capture by the Japanese, and he was made to work with thousands of other POW’s on what was call the “Death Railroad.” It ran along the valley of the Quai River in Thailand, conditions so awful that almost two-thousand prisoners died for every five miles of railroad built. It got so bad, soon the prisoners were all at each other’s throats. Gordon writes, “Death was everywhere, and as conditions worsened our lives were poisoned by selfishness, hatred, and fear. Formerly we had huddled together, believing there was safety in numbers, and still showing consideration for one another. Now that was gone. Existence had become so miserable, the odds so heavy against us, that nothing mattered except to survive. We lived by the rule of the jungle, red in tooth and claw. It was a case of, ‘I look out for myself, and to hell with everyone else.’ But one afternoon something happened. A shovel was missing at the end of the day. The officer in charge became enraged, demanding the missing shovel be produced or else. And when no one in the squadron had volunteered taking the shovel. The officer took out his gun, threating to shoot everyone on the spot. Suddenly one man stepped forward. “I took it,” he said. The officer put away his gun, took a shovel and beat the man to death. But at the second tool check, no shovel was missing. The word spread like wildfire through the whole camp, ‘An innocent man had been willing to die to save everyone else.’ The incident had a huge effect. We began to treat each other like brothers. Another man was caught trading with the locals for medicine for a dying comrade, and was sentenced to death. But he submitted to it, reading from a little Bible, then cheering up the chaplain right before his execution. Death was still with us, no doubt about that. But we were being slowly freed from its destructive grip.” It was sacrificial love, one man giving his life for others, that changed men struggling to survive into brothers. And that was just a human being. The Son of God gave himself for you. Jesus Christ stepped forward and was beaten into the ground to save us from our sins. When seeking revival, that’s the only formula that matters. Please, I invite you join us.

we were from. “America,” my husband replied. Looking at my dark hair and olive skin, the Arab responded, “She’s not from the States.” “Yes, I am,” I said. He paused and then asked, “Is that your husband?” “Yes,” I replied. Then, turning to my husband, he offered, “I’ll give you a hundred camels for her.” M y h u s b a n d l o o k e d stunned, and there was a long silence. Finally he replied, “She’s not for sale.” T he salesman left and, somewhat indignant, I asked, “What took you so long to answer?” “I was trying to figure out how to get a hundred camels back home.”

would cast a shadow, this would predict six more weeks of bad weather, which they calculated would be the length of the Second Winter. Pennsylvania’s earliest settlers were Germans and they found groundhogs to be in profusion in many parts of the state. They determined that the groundhog who resembled the European hedgehog, was a most intelligent and sensible

animal and therefore decided that if the sun did appear on February 2nd, so wise an animal as the groundhog would see its shadow and hurry back to its underground home for another six weeks of winter. That is how it came to be observed in the United States. What is the Ground Hog anyway? Is it a mole? Or is it a gopher? Is it the one and/or the same? I am not sure if Southern Okla-

homa is the right climate for them, but if we do by chance find that they have overtaken our yard, do we get rid them in the same way? Do we want to leave at least one that can come out here and check to see if there is a shadow? We may not observe February 2nd as a national holiday here in Southern Oklahoma, however, we certainly seem to believe what those Germans set up in 1887 .

One Pharmacist’s View The title may make you think of the movie, but I was thinking of something else. Coming home to America from a foreign country after an absence of several months or even years. I had been in and out of the country a few times without any ado but it was a lot different one nice fall afternoon in 1956. After a long contorted trip from Tokyo on an aging “Super Connie” to San Francisco with over 100 military wives (every one of them pregnant) and their children (commonly called military brats) getting back to the USA a little different. The long tiring flight had started out sort of mundane and normal but that was before we landed in Midway for gas. The pilot landed short of the runway and wrecked the landing gear - stranding us for over 24 hours on that little spit of sand with its 1930s style wooden air terminal. We waited on yet another old Super Connie to fly in from Honolulu and fly us on. Eventually after several more long stories and haphazard happenings we flew out of Honolulu on to San Francisco. I was relieved no one had had a baby yet.

When I’ve spoken of this trip people have asked me, “What was the scariest part of that trip? Landing on Midway?” “Did you fear one or more of the ladies would decide to go ahead and have a baby?” “Well, I have to say, the scariest part was realizing I was on a big plane full of women who were all pregnant and there weren’t very many toilets.” Two of the little restrooms were taped up and said, “Out of Order.” As soon as we reached cruising altitude and the seat belt light was off long lines developed. Finally the flight attendants announced that the male passengers had been granted “go to the head of the line” privileges. But the rest of the story is still coming. The slow flight from Honolulu to San Francisco on the old prop plane continued and finally the captain announced that in about 5 minutes or so we would be able to see the coastline of California. It seemed like we had been flying for days and, as a matter of fact, we had. Everyone, including me strained their necks for their first glimpse of the

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ Does God plan and control the events in your life each day? Has he fixed the time of your death and it cannot be changed? Has He determined if you will live forever with Him in heaven or if you will spend eternity in hell? Many professed Christians believe these things. Tom J. Nettles has written that God “fixed from eternity all the circumstances in the life of every individual or mankind and all the particulars which will compose the history of the human race from its commencement to its close.” If this statement is true, it means that we humans do not really make any decisions since God has made all of them for us from eternity. And, if this teaching is true, your eternal destiny has been predetermined by God. Doesn’t that seem un-

fair to you? How you live, what you do, your character and your values – in fact, nothing about you or your life will have anything to do with whether you enjoy blessings from God or suffer His wrath – if Nettles’ statement is true. Surely, God is just and righteous? However, if everything has been predetermined by God, how can He judge us according to what we have done as the Apostle Paul wrote, “We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” (2 Cor. 5:10) If God calls to be saved only the ones He has chosen, why do the inspired Scriptures say that God “desires all men to be saved.” (1 Tim 2:4) Since the inspired Apostle Peter declared (2 Peter 3:9) that God is “not willing that any should perish,” it is clear that if we perish, it is by our own doing and perishing is not what God has planned for any of us. My friend, God wants you saved! Will you submit in obedience to His will? (Matthew 7:21)

California coast and when it finally just popped up out of nowhere there was loud applause, enthusiastic cheering and the loud whistling that is second nature to Navy and Marine Corps wives. The long hard trip was nearly over and the enthusiasm and fellowship shared at that moment made me a little sad to part with “my” group after the plane landed. We had gone through some experiences that exceeded normal bounds and for me it was good to have gotten acquainted with this scrappy bunch of patriotic military dependents. It was a good time to be alive and be back home in that time on that beautiful fall day in 1956. We all knew we lived in a very special place — America and it seemed all of a sudden it’s “specialness” was very obvious to me. I was glad to be home — glad to be an American and proud of our military that day. It’s good to be home again. For the past two weeks, Pat has been in and out of the hospital in Tulsa but I think all is fixed up now and have hopes she will be “back to speed” soon and able to return to her work of seeing to my cooking.

Vote February 11

My name is Barbara McPherson; I am running for the Allen School Board position vacated by Lynn Anderson. I am a retired teacher and have lived in Allen for eleven (11) years. My goals are that the students receive the best education possible, nutritional food, and bullying stopped in our schools. I have spent 39 years in education. While the 9½ years in public school I was a basketball coach, cheerleader sponsor, and started training children for Special Olympics, and was one of the founders of the YWCA in Okmulgee. I spent 20 years at the School for the Blind in Muskogee. As a board member of Oklahoma Blind Athletes I coached track, field, goalball, gymnastics, and participated in sending the students to many countries as well as in the United States for competition, and coached Special Olympics at local and state level. While at CCA Davis Correctional facility in Holdenville for 9 years in the education department, I helped 11 inmates acquired their GED as well as working in the computer lab, and teaching junior high level of education. 1. With the state grading of schools, the elementary received a “C” and high school got an “A”. We have good teachers and they need our support so they can give the students the best education possible. This starts at the administrative level. We need teacher and parent participation at all levels of education. 2. With obesity at an epidemic level in this country we need to give our young people an opportunity to learn about better food choices. This would give them an opportunity to have a healthier life. 3. Students going to Allen schools have been bullied starting at the elementary level. This type of activity needs to be eliminated by parent, school, and community. It is called respect for others. I have come to know and have made friends in the community through church, city activities and attending Allen School functions. There is always room for improvements and through public service on the Allen School Board of Education I could maybe make a difference. “Give a person a fish everyday or teach them to fish and they can feed themselves for a lifetime.” PLEASE VOTE . . . IT IS OUR RIGHT AND PRIVILEGE IN THIS COUNTRY.

Do You Know Who? She walks the streets, both night and day, How many times is hard to say. To help keep this town a cleaner place, She works with such a steady pace. She tries to help everyone she meets – In homes, schools or busy streats. She says it’s better to give than to receive, To help someone she seems relieved. The town gave her a brand new bike, She was like a kid with its first trike. But to her disappointment and sad let down, She returned the bike back to the town.

She said, “I appreciate it more than I can tell” “I just can’t ride anymore, my health’s too frail.” She would walk to church if it were twenty miles or more She’s usually first to hit the door. And keeps her place in the same pew She’s one of God’s most chosen few.

Allen School Board Election February 11

Chad Goodson

Joe Bailey O ur apology to our readers for the printing error in last week’s story about the School Board Election. We are reprinting the story in its entirely here . . . A ll registered voters living in the Allen School District are reminded to get out this Tuesday, February 11th, to cast a ballot for their choice of the candidates running for the local School Board. Three locals have registered for the position: Joe Bailey, Chad Goodson, and Barbara McPherson. Joe Bailey is a graduate of Byng High School, and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from East Central University in 1987. He and his wife of 34 years, Debra, have a 22-year old daughter, Kristi, of Ada, and their son Jonathan, 14, attends Allen Schools as an 8th grader. S ince 1996, Joe has worked for Legal Shield in Ada, in their Information Technology Department. During the late 80s and early 90s, he was employed by Halliburton, Duncan, within their IT department. From there he went Compuware Corporation in Colorado Springs before returning to the Allen area. From 2004 to 2009, he was a member of the Pontotoc County Fair Board, serving a portion of that time as secretary. Joe stated, “I have grown up in this area and had a brother and sister who attended Allen schools; my son Jonathan attends there now. I want to see the many great aspects of our school continue but at the same time I want to see us reaching for new accomplishments and improvements. Supporting our administration and faculty to refine and improve our academics, sports and all our programs, would be my goal. Aiding the improvement of our kids’ education is important to me. To improve their education means to improve the rest of their lives. It takes

people who are involved, who will work with our administration and faculty to improve and add to the educational product of our school. I would appreciate the opportunity to help all the students of Allen Schools by serving on our school board.” C had Goodson has served on the Board since June 2013 when he was appointed to replace a retiring member. Chad has lived his entire life in Allen, graduating from AHS in 2001. He and his wife, Keisha, have two children and both Brogen, age 7, and Khloe, age 4, are students in the Allen system. C had attended Eastern Oklahoma State College, and has worked as a Wildlife Specialist for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation for the past eight years. He stated his goals as a desire to improve the public education Allen provides by integrating new technologies that will assist students to succeed academically. “If elected, I plan to continue to work with the other board members to improve and maintain a safe and productive learning environment for our children.”

B arbara McPherson moved to Allen from Tulsa 11 years ago and makes her home in Black Addition. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Northeastern State College, Tahlequah, and worked for 9 years in the Okmulgee school system, 20 years for the Oklahoma School for the Blind in Muskogee, and 9 years for the CCA Davis prison in Holdenville. Barbara lists her goals by noting the state grading system in which the local elementary received a “C” and the high school an “A.” “Teacher and parental participation is needed at all levels of education. Obesity is at an epidemic level in this country and we need to give our young people an opportunity to learn about better food choices to give them an opportunity for a healthier life. And students going to Allen schools have been bullied, starting at the elementary level. This type of activity needs to be eliminated.” A ll polling places in the Allen District will be open on February 11th, from 7 am to 7 pm, so voters will cast ballots at their regular locations.

and the tremendous impact that mentors make in their mentees’ lives.” Mentor Day is held in conjunction with National Mentoring Month in January. The initiative, named for foundation founder and chairman David L. Boren and his wife, Molly, grew out of Boren’s own commitment to mentoring and the proven impact that mentoring can have on a student’s success in and out of the classroom. The initiative was launched in 2006 to promote the growth and development of quality youth mentoring programs statewide. Since then, more than 100 Oklahoma mentoring organizations have joined the foundation’s network. Mentoring Day honorees were selected by their respective programs within the Mentoring Initiative network. Each recipient received a Certificate of Recognition signed by Boren. The award presentations, which took place in the House of Representatives’ Chambers, were made by Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence President Les Risser of Norman. Past president and trustee Patti Mellow of Oklahoma City read descriptions about each outstanding mentor. More than 200 people, including mentors, mentees and representatives from state mentoring organizations attended the day’s events. Mentor Day included hands-on educational activities presented by the Oklahoma City Zoo Education Department and Girl Scouts-Western Oklahoma STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Program. Guests also enjoyed live jazz music by Chris Hicks and Mitch Bell and juggling lessons by Bill Williams. Capping off the day was a mentor-mentee outing to the Devon Ice Rink in downtown Oklahoma City. The Calvin Tribal 4-H Tribal program selected Calvin High School seniors Carter, Craven and Fugitt as its Mentors of the Year to be recognized at Oklahoma Mentor

Day. All three mentors joined 4-H when they were in the fourth grade. The Tribal 4-H program serves Native American students ages 8-14, along with other students identified by the school as possible high risk because of single parents, low income or deployed military parents. Older teen 4-H members volunteer to be mentors and help with the program for one year. Younger 4-H members are matched with a teen mentor or an adult mentor for the entire school year and meet every Wednesday for a three-hour, after-school program. Active in 4-H with many projects in horses, beef, dogs and leadership, Carter has been a mentor in the tribal 4-H group for two years and has had several mentees. Graduating valedictorian of the Class of 2014, she is captain of the Calvin High School girls’ basketball team and active in the Future Farmers of American. She plans to attend Oklahoma University upon graduation.      Craven’s favorite 4-H projects have been in clothing, public speaking and leadership.  She currently is a Hughes County 4-H officer. She has been a mentor for two years and works weekly with younger 4-H members in the after-school program.   She is also a cheerleader and plans to attend East Central University after graduation. Fugitt’s 4-H interests include leadership, public speaking and food science. Currently, a Hughes County 4-H officer, she has been a mentor for two years and helps weekly with the after-school program.  A cheerleader and active Future Farmers of America member, Fugitt also attends Kiamichi Vocational Technical School.  She plans to attend college after graduation.         For more information about Oklahoma Mentor Day or the Boren Mentoring Initiative, visit or contact Beverly Woodrome, program director, at (405) 236-0006.

Lady Mustangs close week with 2 victories Allen girls bounce back with wins following losses to Asher & Sasakwa

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Lady Mustangs will bring a two-game winning streak into this week’s basketball schedule. Coach Jeremy Strong’s AHS girls had lost two games earlier in the week. However, they rebounded strongly from losses to Asher and Sasakwa. Allen jumped back into the win column with an overtime victory at Vanoss. The Lady Mustangs then romped to a 30-point blowout at Wanette. Asher outscored the visiting Allen girls in each and every quarter. The Lady Indians led 10-9 after one quarter, 22-14 at the half, 37-20 after three quarters and 10-4 in the fourth period. The combined effort lifted the Asher squad to the 23point win at 47-24. Allen’s scoring feature 8 different players. Charlea Leonard was tops with 6 points. Sondra Rowsey and Hannah Heck added 4 points each. Miranda Raney followed with 3 points. Three others scored 2 points each, including Alison Sells, Alycia Evans and Faith Caldwell. Emily Nelson capped the list with 1 point. The second loss of the week came on Thursday, Jan. 30 at Allen. The Lady Mustangs led 17-16 at the half and were tied 32-32 at the close of the third quarter. Sasakwa then outscored the host team 11-7 down the stretch to secure a 43-39 triumph. Alison Sells poured in a game-high 14 points. She was the only Lady Mustang to finish in double-digit scoring. Charlea Leonard was second on the team in scoring with 6 points. Kennedy Prentice and Miranda Raney added 5 points each while Hannah Heck and Alycia Evans generated 4 points each. Faith Caldwell had the other point. On Friday, Allen shook off the losses by notching a thrilling 45-41 overtime victory at Vanoss. However, the Lady Mustangs needed to overcome a 21-10 halftime deficit. Coach Jeremy Strong’s girls rose up and outscored Vanoss 12-9 in the third quarter and 15-7 in the fourth. The surge evened the score at 37-37. The tie score at the end of the fourth quarter forced the two teams into a 4-minute overtime session. Allen’s momentum continued in the extra period as the Lady Mustangs outscored the home team 8-4 to capture the 45-41 decision. The scoring leaders for Allen were Charlea Leonard with 16 points and Alison Sells with 13. Sondra Rowsey was third on the team in scoring with 8 points. Hannah Heck and Alycia Evans tallied

3 points each and Faith Caldwell finished with 2. On Saturday, Allen went back to work. The Lady Mustangs went to Wanette and pounded the Lady Tigers 49-19. Allen led 13-4 after one quarter and 41-8 at the half. The 33-point cushion was plenty to allow AHS to clear the bench and play all the reserves for the second half of the game. They were riding the 49-19 lead when the final buzzer sounded. Eight AHS players contributed to the scoring spree. Charlea Leonard led the parade with 13 points. The remaining scoring was more balanced. Alison Sells dropped in 8 points. Miranda Raney scored 7. Alycia Evans and Faith Caldwell chipped in 6 points each. Sondra Rowsey had 5 points while Hannah Heck and Kennedy Prentice rounded out the list with 2 points each. Coach Strong was far more impressed with his team’s play late in the week. “We weren’t playing well early in the week,” he said. “We were coming off the tournament and were just dead-legged and lacked real focus. We were just not as focused as we needed to be in those first two games. But we battled through it and the girls started to play much better in the second half of the Vanoss game. I think that was a good win for us to come back the way we did. We won in overtime and went on to the big win at Wanette. I was happy that we got that big lead and everyone got to play in the second half. The reserves did a good job too.” Looking ahead, Coach Strong sees the playoffs rapidly approaching for the Lady Mustangs. “We have those three games first and the main thing to keep our focus in those games. We want to see improvement on our offense and our defense and we want them to come into each game ready to compete. We are down to 3 games and it just seems to me this season went real fast! I am just glad we had Monday off. The girls can use the rest and the break. We are scheduled to go to Wetumka on Tuesday and then have our Senior Night game at home on Friday. Stonewall will be here for that one. Our last game of the season will be at Bowlegs next week. After that, we will be in the playoffs.” As for the playoff schedule, Allen will advance to the district finals on Saturday, Feb. 15. “Stonewall chose to play Roff in the first round of our district tournament,” the Allen boss said. “That’s fine by me. We will play the winner of those two on Saturday night (Feb. 15th).” Win or lose on Feb. 15,

Mustangs split wins in four recent games

Allen boys lose to Asher and Vanoss and defeat Sasakwa and Wanette However, the Mustangs put on a dominating performance that took the drama out of this game in a hurry. AHS pulled away to a 27-14 lead heading into halftime. The Mustangs followed up with a 23-point outburst in the third quarter to extend the advantage to 50-26. They cruised on to a 21-point win at 54-33 verdict. Joseph Hopper once again led the Mustangs in scoring with 17 points. Zayne Erickson was also in double figures with 10 points. Tommy Peay added 8 points while Little Sky Frazier provided 6. Dakota Nickell generated 4 points while Drew Back, Colby Eaker and Ty Brown scored 3 points each. Coach Greg Mills is satisfied with his players for their work during a very busy 4-game stretch. “We are playing really well,” the coach said. “Our final three we played exceptionally well. We just didn’t hit any free throws against Vanoss. We made under 50 percent from the line and you can’t do that is a close game and expect to win. The thing I’d say that is important for us as we move forward is that we need more scoring from different people. That’s an area that would help our team as we get ready for the playoffs. We have only 3 games left before the district tournament at Roff.” The Mustangs were set to play at Wetumka on Tuesday – weather permitting. They’ll end the week on Friday with a home game against the Stonewall Longhorns. “After these two games, we’ll finish (the regular season) at Bowlegs and then go to the district tournament at Roff on Friday.” Allen and Stonewall will meet in the Feb. 14 district opener. The game will be an elimination showdown for the Mustangs and Longhorns.
