Donny Johnson and Charles Butler, both former AHS coaches, watched the 2014 Alumni baseball game. Mr. Butler threw out the first pitch at this year’s game; Mr. Johnson had that honor last year.
It was Fun! Allen Tradition Continues Hard work paid off big time with the wonderful success of the 2014 Allen Alumni Weekend. Coordinator Danli Sanford did an outstanding job of organizing and delegating responsibility so that all areas were well prepared. The Friday Night on Main brought people together in a casual gathering with entertainment by The Band, performing country/western music, and The Classic Mustang Alumni Band with renditions of hits from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Performing with The Band were Doug Stinson, Jimmy Nix, Dave Baber, Wendell Smith, Spencer Cody, Jacob Gardner and Richard Laden. Members of The Classic Mustang Alumni Band are Merida Sappenfield, Jeff Ray, Richard Laden, Spencer Cody, Sam Manuel, Jacob Gardner, Wendell Smith, and David Baber. T he hot dogs were going fast and the hamburgers went even faster at the Masonic Lodge cookout. Profits from their sale were divided between the Lodge and the Alumni Association. On Main, the bounce house
was extremely popular with the younger crowd, and the Allen Sorority’s cakewalk went over very well. And it was good to have political candidates out greeting area residents. T he Class of 1974 enjoyed time together at the Allen Nutrition Site; and the Material Girls Quilt Guild’s show in the west part of the building was well attended. Allen has many talented, crafty people. Quilts were on display by Beulah Arnold, Donna Arnold, Heather Nelson, Pam Price, Bonnie May, Paula Nelson, Patty Cotton, Karen Knock, Carolyn Sanders and Wynema Allen, as well as a quilt made by the Guild and donated to the Allen Historical Society, and a quilt made and donated to the Allen Academic/Scholastic Teams. This last quilt will be raffled off this fall to help with the teams’ expenses as they travel to meets. Saturday started off with a great turnout of hungry people ready to chow down at the Pancake Breakfast. Cooks and workers were Stephen Caldwell, Danli Sanford, Carl Frederick, Jorcontinued Page 7

C ountry Comments
up, we didn’t always have a whole bunch of money, but that was all right. We learned to do things that were fun but didn’t cost us anything. For example, we’d load up the family in our ‘49n Ford and drive from our country town down to Congress Avenue, the main street of Austin, Texas. Then we’d park in front of the Paramount Theater. We never went to the movie; we just watched he people lined up to go. It didn’t cost us a thing. People would line up to buy their tickets, go in, and come out – and we’d just watch. I remember how closely my mama and daddy would watch – especially my mama, Pauline Bernadeen. She would sit there on the front seat and lean up next to Floyd – they were still in that stage of life where they liked to be close together. My older sister, Sherry Darlene, and I would sit in the back seat. (My little sister, Teri Linn, wasn’t born yet.) Pauline would snuggle close to Floyd, and he’d put his arm around her. They

would just look at people and have the time of their lives. O nce Mama said, “Look Floyd, look. Would you just look at that woman? That woman in red, behind the man in the blue. Look what she has on. Can you believe she’s wearing that? Could you imagine if I wore something like that? Oh my!” I remember my daddy watching that woman walk all the way down the sidewalk. Then he looked at us kids, shaking his head sadly, and said, “Isn’t that pitiful? Now that is pitiful.” Of course, Daddy was a deacon, so he was especially spiky about what people wore. Sometimes we’d drive over to Robert Mueller Airport and do the same thing. We’d watch people get on and off the planes. We never flew in a plane, but we enjoyed just watching people get on and off and watching the planes take off and land. I remember one time a while family of five came off a plane. Old Floyd Leon, watching
them, smacked his forehead in disbelief. “Good night, looky there! A family of five. That is ridiculous. Lord have mercy. One of them could have gone and come back and told the rest of them all about it.” We kids spent a lot of time at the automatic doors. The airport had just put in some pressure-sensitive rubber mats. When you stepped on the rubber mats, the glass door automatically opened. My sister and I could play on that thing for hours. Now I was raised a Methodist, so I knew how to shake a leg. I (would just get a goin’; and I’d get that door a goin’ until old Floyd Leon would come over and say, “All right, get on off there now. Let some other kids play on it for a while.” That was the closest we ever came to Six Flags Over Texas. I learned an important less on from Daddy and Mama when I was young; I learned how to be happy, even when we didn’t have everything we ever wanted.

When I was a junior in high school I enrolled in a class called “Family Living”, taught by Mrs. Tucker. It was just for boys and we learned several things, including how to cook basic meals. It was a worthwhile class, although I am not sure they have that class anymore. In fact, I am not sure if they even offer home economics anymore. If not, this might be a good time to bring those classes back. Rebecca Traister writes . . . “It’s time to bring back home economics. The traditional high school subject, which taught female students how to sew a button, boil an egg, and generally tend to their spouses and children, was killed off in the 1970s after feminists complained that it turned women into “a limp, gibbering mass of jelly waiting for marriage”, as one activist put it. Forty years later, home ec should make a comeback – for both boys and girls. Men today spend more time in childcare than their fathers did, but are averse to household duties that society still codes as “female.” Modern home ec would tech men from a young age “that their obligations are to diapering as well as to moneymaking”, and sharing the burden of running a household. Instructions in cooking and cleaning would provide “fidgety” boys with a creative, physical outlet, and prepare them to live without their mommies someday. With the median age of first marriage now 27 and 29 for women and men, respectively, a knowledge of how to feed, clothe, and care for oneself isn’t just an added bonus – it’s “a survival technique.” —CC— Quote of the week . . . “If guns kill people, then pencils Communities of Care misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons An Oklahoma Systems of Care Initiative make people fat.” The Communities of Care Initiative is hosting a forum to celebrate the strength and spirit of our fami —CC— June is a popular month for marriages. With that in mind, here are 11 things you probably didn’t know about weddings . . . at least, I didn’t. 1. The Egyptians were probably the first to exchange wedding rings. By medieval times, it was believed that a vein ran from the fourth finger of the left hand to the heart, so this became the trendy place to show off your rock. 2. But engagement rings didn’t take off until the Middle Ages. In 1215, Pope Innocent III declared that there should be a longer waiting period between betrothal and marriage, spiking the ring’s popularity. 3. And diamonds came even later. Though the first recorded exchange of a diamond engagement ring was in 1477, when Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to Mary of Burgundy, they weren’t the standard until 1947, when Frances Gerety, who never herself married, coined “A Diamond Is Forever” for De Beers. 4. White wedding dresses were de rigueur until Queen Victoria wore one to marry Albert of Saxe-Coburg in 1840. 5. In ancient times, brides carried bunches of aromatic herbs, ĂŶĚĐŽŵŵƵŶŝƚǇĂŐĞŶĐŝĞƐƐĞƌǀŝŶŐ͗ like garlic, dill, and rosemary, to ward off evil spirits; this tradition continued into the 1800s. (Guests, it’s said, might also nibble on the herbs for fresh breath.) Queen Victoria, who carried a bouquet of snowdrops, also gets credit for starting the modern floral trend. 6. Throwing the bouquet wasn’t always about calling out single ladies — it started because guests used to tear off pieces of the bride’s dress in an attempt to take some of her luck home. The tossed flowers were intended to distract the crowd so she ZĞŶŽǁŶĞĚ^ƉĞĂŬĞƌĂŶĚŚŝůĚĚǀŽĐĂƚĞ could get away unscathed. 7. Early bridesmaids were dressed exactly like the bride to ĞƉƵƚǇŝƌĞĐƚŽƌŽĨŽŵŵƵŶŝƚǇWĂƌƚŶĞƌƐŚŝƉƐ͕,^ confuse evil spirits, who might otherwise target the happy couple. It wasn’t until the trend-setting Victorian era that bridesmaids began wearing white dresses with short veils, Oklahoma Kids and Special Concert by Alaska and Madi from the “The Voice” setting them a bit apart from the bride. 8. The honeymoon comes from a Norse tradition,��������������������������������� wherein newlyweds would go into hiding for a month, drinking a cup ���������������������������������������� ����������������������������������� >ĞĂƌŶŚŽǁǇŽƵĐĂŶŚĞůƉĐƌĞĂƚĞƐƚƌŽŶŐĞƌĐŽŵŵƵŶŝƟĞƐďǇ͗ of honey wine every day. ���������������������������������� ������������������������ 9.

Threads of Life by Cleo Emerson LeVally You have to be as old as I am to even know about Gypsies. When I was growing up in Allen, our farm was down about ½ mile from the end of Broadway on the a county line road. When we had spare time, we played on the creek near our house off a bisecting section line road. Every once in a while a load of Gypsies would come down that road. We played in that creek whenever we had any spare time. One day a group of us were playing there and a wagon of Gypsies came by. They stopped and talked awhile
Gypsies & Town Kids and then went on. After they passed we noticed that my sister Velma was missing. We ran up to the house and told my Dad. He grabbed a shotgun, got in the truck and took off after the Gypsy caravan that had just passed the house on the road. We were pretty scared and waited at the house for him to return. And when he did come back, he had my sister Velma with him. There was a story going around later that Gypsies often stole children, mostly boys, because not many boys were born to them.
I have not heard anything about Gypsies in years, but we saw them quite frequently when I was a child. After that experience, we would never talk to them or stay near if we saw a covered wagon of Gypsies coming down the road. Growing up, sometimes kids from town came out to our farm. We had farm animals that had babies and when we had little pigs, goats, calves, etc. there would always be a group out there and we would sit on the fence and watch them. Sometimes my dad would get annoyed with them because they were there so
much. Later on, when I was in high school, the phone would ring and if dad was around, he would sing out, ‘If it is a town kid you can’t go.” Well, when I began to date, it was with a town kid, because we lived in a town where the
refinery was the big industry, and there were no town kids. Everyone’s dad worked at the refinery or ran a business, like the barber shop, drug store, grocery store, bank, etc. The refinery and oil was the thing in Allen.

We hope you and your family had a wonderful Father’s Day. Children may rise up and call their mothers blessed, but fathers deserve a special day of appreciation and honor, too. Thanks, Dads. We know you want us to get mushy about as much as you really like the tie we gave you — but, well….thanks. We do appreciate you and all you do for your families, church, and communities. Several years ago a woman volunteered to give a devotional about fathers. She said she tried to find a man in the Bible who was a good father, but she couldn’t find one that would be the good example she was looking for. Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Eli, David, Solomon — each had their flaws. She said the only perfect father the Bible points us to is God, and Jesus taught us to relate to him as our all powerful and yet all loving father. Amos Stapp opened the services this Sunday by sharing his memory verse, Psalm 99:2, with us. Song leader and youth director, James Hammonds, reported that 4 people from the group they took to Falls Creek made professions of faith this week. That alone made it a great week, but they enjoyed good weather, great preaching and classes, games, and some pretty terrific meals, too, since Pat Hammonds was head cook. I’m not sure who the chief bottle washer was, but they must have enjoyed the week, too. Tom Spillman sang “From the Cradle to the Grave” as the special music this week. We always enjoy Tom’s singing and his choice of songs. It has been awhile since he chose this one, and it was good to hear him sing it again. Rev. Krouch’s Father’s Day message was from Matthew 7:7-11; Luke 15:20-24; and Joshua 24:14, 15. Good fathers know how to give in order to provide for the needs of their children. In Matthew 7 Jesus taught us that God listens to us when we ask for what we need and gives us good things for our benefit. When we seek answers we will find them in God’s Word. Jesus told us to knock and it shall be opened to us. If we sincerely seek in the Word for solutions to our problems, Jesus will be happy to open that door to us. A second characteristic of good fathers is that they know how to forgive. If you know the story of the Prodigal Son, you know that he was a very foolish young man. However, when he finally came to his senses in that hog pen, he realized how wrong he had been and had changed from false pride to the kind humility that made him willing to work as a servant. His father met him on the road to welcome him home, forgave him, and called for a celebration. Just like the Prodigal Son, when we repent and start back down the road to our Father in heaven, we will find God ready to forgive us, welcome us home, and celebrate our return. There is a difference between earthly fathers and our Heavenly Father, though. Pride can get in the way of fathers forgiving their children. God just loves. Pride has nothing to do with God’s love. A third characteristic of a good father is that he knows how to take responsibility for his family and lead them. His commitment to his family and his values is important to being able to lead. He sets the example and shows the right way to his children. A good father stands up and tells the world that he is a Christian and follows through with it. He seeks answers to life’s problems in Scripture. Like Joshua, he determines that as for himself and the family he is responsible for, they will serve the Lord.

One Pharmacist’s View It was that time of the year: Alumni time. The time every June that older grads flock back to Allen to get caught up on their visiting and get another look at where they went to school. It’s also a good to time look in and see what their old friends are up—who they married or didn’t marry. Some are a little bit mercenary and like to see if their classmates are doing well—financially. Stories are sometimes extracted and exaggerations may occur in the happiness of the moment. Checking up on each other’s health is an acceptable practice and well, a lot of talking takes place. J. I. Jones related one day about two “good old boys” whose graduation dates lay far in the past were visiting in his store one day. One asked, “Have you seen Mary Jane? “Why no, why?” “She is just like this he said cupping both his hands in front of him. “I don’t remember her being all that bosomy” the second guy replied. “Oh no, not that, I mean arthritis” as he cupped

his hands in front of himself again. One of my favorite alumni stories was from a little guy who worked for Sun Oil. It was a Saturday morning in the Drug Store and we were visiting with some visitors. People used to really dress up for these things and of course there was no shortage of stories going around but back in the middle 30s this old Allen boy returned home for the Alumni Weekend. It was warm but he had on a jacket and tie—all the time. He looked pretty darn prosperous considering it was in the middle of the great depression and a lot of people were having hard times—and showed it. This guy was driving a big black Buick Eight. Boy was it pretty with its perfectly clean white-walled tires. He made frequent visits up and down the street parking in different locations availing other old classmates and gawkers a better look at his fancy car. At the banquet he wasn’t asked to speak but did so
anyway. He made a short talk about how he had overcome his upbringing and how he had made so much money but when he got back to his hotel that night he felt sort of dejected. No one had really gone crazy over his exploits and success. No one asked him to their party or home afterwards. Come Sunday morning most Alums’ would visit their old churches and again they would get to see a lot of old friends and they (more importantly) would get to see you. Of course come Sunday morning our subject’s big black car (somewhat dusty now) was parked in the parking lot of the First Baptist Church and he found himself a seat about three pews from the front. The church had bought a new electric organ (on the credit) which they were very proud of. The “easy” installments hadn’t been all that easy and now they were three months behind. During the announcement time the pastor announced the organist would

Last Sunday we enjoyed watching our children from Bible School sing their songs and recite their memory verses. We had a “great” week and appreciate all the help. Our children are our future church. This week was Father’s Day and we honored the fathers there with a homemade pie. Nothing says love like “food.” We need Christian fathers in our homes to raise our children and grandchildren. Our local group sang “The Lighthouse” for our special. We sing this song often to remind us that even though we are a small church, we can have an
influence in our community. Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from 1 Timothy 6:11-21 and entitled “Becoming a Man of God.” We need to resist the pull of the world. We are surrounded by worldly thinking. It is flawed and misguided, in spite of sounding so logical and right. Worldly thinking is often in direct opposition to the Word of God. Paul tells Timothy to “run” from this kind of thinking. It will ultimately destroy you. We need to pursue Godliness. People of God become more godly because they intend to. We need to pursue and chase after righteousness,
Light from God’s Word
Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ
On the news there was a report of the Mormon Church taking action to excommunicate some of its members who wanted to bring the church into the 21st century. They argued that we were no longer in the dark ages and that the church should reflect the more modern beliefs. When considering changing the church, aren’t there many questions we should ask? For example, “Is the church a purely human institution, owned and operated by men? If it is, then surely men can make it to be whatever they desire, adapting its teachings to the beliefs of each succeeding generation. On the other hand, if the church is a divine institution, established and governed by God, how can man presume to have the
authority to change something given by God? God’s word says that the divine Son of God purchased the church with his blood. (Acts 20:28) Jesus said, “I will build My church.” (Matthew 16:18) Since Jesus built it, does it not belong to Him? Also, since Christ is the head of His church (Ephesians 5:23), how can men make changes in it? Could not the all-knowing God who created our world and who upholds our world by His powerful word (Hebrews 1:1-2) – could He not anticipate the needs of men of all ages and give us a church adequate for all time? How much faith do we have in God? It is the words of Christ that will judge us (John 12:48), not the beliefs of today’s culture! It is by obedience to the truth that God saves us. (1 Peter 1:22) Does God’s truth change with the desires of each generation of people? “You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.” (Deuteronomy 4:2)
Godliness, faith, love endurance, and gentleness. We are to become life-long learners and teachers. We are to share what we have discovered in our journey with those around us. Most people will not know how to fill the spiritual void in their lives without help. Someone you know needs to know what you know-teach them! Lead them to faith and help them grow in the faith. Guard shat has been entrusted to you. Guard your heart and mind. Live what you profess. The relationships in the home are second only to our relationship with God. People in constant conflict with others need to do some soul-searching. Unresolved anger has profound spiritual implications. Accepting God’s unconditional forgiveness is the first step in forgiving others.
play a medley of music—and she did. When the pastor took to the pulpit again he pointed out something everyone knew already—this might well be the last time the congregation would be able to hear the beautiful organ as the organ company said if the payments weren’t “brought up” they would come get it next Thursday. If that happened, the pastor went on, we will have to drag out the old pump organ which is sitting back in a room where the dirt dabbers were busy on it and they would be subject to its wheezing and obnoxious sounds or just get by with a piano. It was pretty sad.
The well-dressed alum, as if on cue, sprang on his feet. “How much do we owe on it?” The preacher responded with an amount that was a little over $1,000 dollars. “I’ll pay half right now if someone will pay the other half.” He felt pretty safe as he figured there wasn’t 50 cents to found in the whole place. The poorly dressed little old lady sharing his pew stood and said: “Sonny Boy, me and you just bought an organ.” Have a great weekend and be sure and go to church this Sunday. And remember—these stories are all true whether they ever happened or not.

Randy Brogdon on Verge of Upset? U.S. Senate candidate drawing large crowds
Vote for Randy Brogdon June 24
Senator Randy Brogdon is a scrapper. Known for shooting straight and telling it like it is, he doesn’t play favorites and doesn’t cozy up to the big money. It is a trait which doesn’t necessarily make him popular among the guys who write the big donation checks. In fact he says the money for his campaign comes mainly from the average guy in increments of $20’s and $50’s. And that is just ﬁne for Randy. After all, there are absolute rights and wrongs and he doesn’t straddle any lines of gray. While serving two terms in the Oklahoma Senate, he developed a reputation for not only being a student of the Constitution, but also applying those principles and values to issues and on his fellow lawmakers no matter their party afﬁliation. He entered politics as a member of the City Council and then as Mayor of Owasso because he saw a need and felt a calling to try to help. Later, he was twice elected to serve in the Oklahoma Senate. While in the Senate, Randy received both praise and ridicule for being conservative. In 2003, the Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee (OCPAC) named him “Legislative New Comer of the Year.” And after eight years of service, the Oklahoma Constitution Newspaper named Randy as “Senate Legislator of the Year” for having the most conservative voting record in the Senate. A natural leader, he was elected Senate Republican Whip and later served as the Assistant Republican Floor Leader. He offered controversial legislation such as “The Taxpayer Bill of Rights” (TABOR) and SB 1 “The Taxpayer Transparency Act.” He was also successful in leading the charge to opt out of the federal “REAL ID ACT” of 2005 in order to stop the collection of personal biometric information. In another standoff with Washington, Randy led the ﬁght in Oklahoma to stop the so-called “NAFTA Superhighway,” the North American Union,
and the Security and Prosperity Partnership. He was also the author of “Ballot Access” legislation, a “Term Limits” bill for statewide elected ofﬁcials, which overwhelmingly passed as a Constitutional Amendment, and the “10th Amendment Resolution,” which was designed to protect states’ rights. In 2010, he ran for Governor and was narrowly defeated. However, although he battled a lack of name recognition, his “every county” campaign approach caught ﬁre and the grass roots effort nearly got him elected with 40 percent of the vote. Now, he has his sights set on being Oklahoma’s next U.S. Senator, a job he feels a duty to do. And again, he is experiencing grass roots support. They say they support him for many reasons . . . for his integrity, his business experience (he owned a wholesale air conditioner business for 30 years), for his faith, for his love for this country, for his ability to cut through the red tape and maybe most of all for his grit. They believe he will stand ﬁrm in Washington and do what is right, no matter what. Senator Brodgon expects tough challenges in the U.S. Senate. “But it is amazing what you can accomplish when you are principled. It is also amazing what happens to our liberty by politicians when they are not. We are ﬁghting a battle right now in the Republican Party. It is so important that we choose leaders whose rhetoric matches their record,” he said. Believing the best years of America are ahead of us and are worth ﬁghting for, he is ready to stand up against the status quo. “I was a Tea Party gut before the Tea Party was cool,” he said with a grin. But underneath it, was a tough attitude that makes you want to believe him. Maybe Washington really can change and maybe this is where we start.

Thank You for considering me as your next Hughes County Sheriff. Hello, my name is Marcia Maxwell and I am a democratic candidate for Hughes County Sheriff. I am a lifelong Hughes County resident and graduate of the Moss School system. My husband, Rick, and I have been married for 18 years. He retired as Chief of Police in Wetumka after 20 years of service and is currently employed as a deputy in Seminole County. We have four girls: Kelly Thomas and her husband Rondell, Cheyenne Wood and her husband Luke, Ashley Babb and her husband Bo, and Jamian Maxwell. We are also the proud grandparents of Kaidance Thomas, Cierra Wood, and Lexi Wood. My parents are Jim Ray and Martha Thompson and Victor and Carol Pryor. I also have a brother that I am very proud of, Jay Thompson, who has served as an OHP Trooper for 16 years, the last eight as a helicopter/airplane pilot. We still live in the Moss community and are active members of Banner Baptist Church. I was a CLEET certiﬁed reserve deputy at the Hughes County Sheriff’s Ofﬁce for over 17 years before accepting the position of Jail Administrator for the Seminole County Law Enforcement Center last September. During my time at Seminole County I have continued my law enforcement education and training with Ethics and Liabilities classes, became a Certiﬁed PREA(Prison Rape Elimination Act) Facilitator, and recently attended classes at the American Jail Association Training Seminar. I currently oversee over 160 inmates and 20 staff members at Seminole County but serving the citizens of Hughes County has always been my calling. My ﬁrst job as an adult was with Hughes County EMS as an EMT-I. I have also held an LPN license for the past 18 years working as both a clinical and home health nurse but my ﬁrst love will always be law enforcement. I want Hughes County to be a safe place for our children and grandchildren to grow up as they are our most precious resource. Being a parent myself, I am reminded daily of the dangers and pitfalls facing our children, such as drugs and other criminal activities. I feel that the citizens of Hughes County deserve a level of service second to none from well trained, qualiﬁed staff along with good working relationships with schools, businesses, and neighboring law enforcement agencies. I feel that to be a good sheriff you must have compassion for the people you serve and a passion for your job. If a citizen comes to you with a problem that is important to them it should be just as important to the ofﬁcer who is handling it. I also feel it is important for the sheriff’s department to be involved in the community in order to know what is going on in the community. In a department as small as Hughes County it is necessary for the sheriff to take calls and work along side the deputies in order for the department to run efﬁciently and utilize all available resources. I am currently a CLEET certiﬁed reserve ofﬁcer in good standing and a member of the Oklahoma Sheriff’s Association and the American Jail Association. I would greatly appreciate your support and would like to thank you for considering me as your next Hughes County Sheriff.
