Kelly Hurt Hosts “The Land Doctors”

A new Oklahoma TV show entitled “The Land Doctors” is now being filmed and is set to air on OETA starting at 8:30 A.M. on April 6, 2014. The program will give viewers a behind the gate look at some of Oklahoma’s most beautiful and interesting

Series Premiers April 6 on OETA ranches and farms. In addition, the show features a do it yourself segment that demonstrates various approaches taken by featured landowners. The show is hosted by Dr. Kelly Hurt of

Allen, Okla. and features the latest Kubota tractors and Land Pride implements from Great Plains Kubota. The Rise and Fall of Slick City will air on April 13th and will feature Judy

Goodspeed of Wetumka as a guest. They will be discussing the damages done by early oil production and what is being done to restore the land. According to Dr. Hurt, “A lot of times, we tend to think the experts are the folks in research or academia, when in reality, some of the smartest, most experienced practitioners are the landowners who are out on the land trying new and exciting things. That’s why we named the show “The Land Doctors” in the plural form. Since so much of this activity occurs on private properties that are seldom seen by anyone other than family and a few close friends, much of this work is unknown and unappreciated. Joining the line up of shows to be aired this spring on OETA is The Land Doctors featuring Allen’s We wanted to create a own Dr. Kelly Hurt. The series premiers April 6, one of the shows will featuring Rocky Top Winery show that opened up these and owners Bobby and Wilma Harden, located east of Allen. Pictured here are Bobby and Wilma properties to viewers so that motivated landowners could Harden, and Kelly Hurt. learn from one another.” The first season of 13 original episodes will air twice weekly for 13 weeks and then go into reruns for a subsequent 13 weeks. Episodes will cover diverse and unique land issues from creating a trout stream to exploring Oklahoma caves. In addition, the show will visit ranches owned by notable public figures from

former Governor Frank Keating to David Mantle, the son of baseball legend Mickey Mantle. One episode even relates real estate development work in Costa Rica to a common need for fencing here in Oklahoma. In addition, the program will cover some Oklahoma history as it looks back to the rough and tumble days of the early Oklahoma oil fields. Great Plains Kubota owner and series sponsor, Bill Clark, commented on some of the goals of “The Land Doctors.” “As a sponsor of the show, our overall goal is to create programming that is both educational and inspirational for families to get outdoors. We hope that people will watch it and then go out and try projects of their own. Most importantly, we really want to see families working together and enjoying themselves while they work on something productive. Even if it’s something as simple as gathering and planting acorns, we want to see families building memories and enhancing the land in a positive way that will last for generations,” said Bill Clark, owner of Great Plains Kubota.

St. Patrick’s Day is also my birthday. To celebrate the event, Dayna and I decided that after church Sunday we would go have pizza and then go to the theater to see Son of God. After church I asked her if we could skip the pizza, go home and rest, and then go to the matinee. A few minutes after we got home she came upstairs and said, “It is so cold and rainy, do you really want to go to a three hour show or had you rather rest some more and just wait until it comes out on a DVD?” You can guess my decision . . . but my decision was certainly not based on the aging process! —CC— I received a birthday card from a friend which had the following verse: During the first third of life, everyone told you what to do. During the second third of your life, you told everyone else what to do. During the last third of your life, everyone’s telling you what to do again. The good thing is you can’t hear ‘em, so you don’t care. —CC— When I think of birthdays, I always think of my Mother’s 80th birthday. At the party, she said, “I am 80 years old and don’t have an enemy.” I jokingly added, “You mean you have made amends with all of them?” “No,” she replied. “I have outlived all of them.” —CC— As another year has rolled around in my life, I want to share one of my favorite quotes: “The trouble with being old enough to have some answers is that no one is asking you any questions.” —CC— Almost every high school senior remembers the SAT test and/or the ACT test. The organization that runs the SAT said Wednesday it is shaking up the college-entrance exam and offering free online help, throwing a curve to the $1 billion test-preparation industry that has grown up around it. Out are obscure vocabulary words, mandatory essays, a deduction for incorrect answers and the 2400-point grading scale launched in 2005. In are questions that demand more analysis and familiarity with a narrower range of subjects as well as a return to the longtime 1600-point scale. Also in the works are a plan to provide free online tutorials to all students and another to arrange for free college applications for economically disadvantaged students. The nonprofit College Board, which runs the SAT, said the changes would help the test better gauge students’ readiness for college and help bridge economic and demographic barriers. The new plan also could encourage more students to take the SAT at a time when it has fallen behind the rival ACT in the number of test-takers. College Board President David Coleman said the SAT, which nearly 1.7 million students took last year, had become out of touch with what students are learning and was perceived to be a better assessment of “privilege rather than merit.” Mr. Coleman, an architect of the Common Core math-and-reading standards rolling out to K-12 schools across the nation with backing from the Obama administration, hopes to close that gap by aligning the new SAT with the skills he believes are more predictive of college success. The new reading section will ask students to support their answers from evidence in a passage provided. Vocabulary words like prevaricator, sagacious and ignominious will disappear in favor of words like synthesis and empirical whose meanings shift in different contexts. The math section will draw from fewer topics, but mastery of those on the test is more likely to be predictive of student readiness and career training, Mr. Coleman said. Calculators will be allowed in only some of the math sections, rather than throughout. The current essay section, which was added in 2005 and brought the potential perfect score to 2400, has been criticized because the compositions aren’t graded on factual accuracy. The new essays, which students could write if their school districts or target colleges require them, will require evidence to be analyzed and an explanation of how the author built an argument. For decades, the SAT was the nation’s pre-eminent collegeentrance examination. But its market share is waning. In 2012, for the first time, more high-school students took the rival ACT, which is tied closely to what is taught in high schools and has been gaining popularity as a way to measure achievement. Last year, that margin expanded to 200,000, according to Fair Test, a testing-watchdog organization. The ACT has contracts to test all the 11th graders in 13 states, some beyond its traditional base in the Midwest, according to Paul Weeks, vice president of consumer engagement for nonprofit ACT Inc. Several more states are joining shortly, Mr. Weeks said. “We’re delighted the SAT folks have finally recognized the test should reflect what’s going on in schools,” Mr. Weeks said. “That’s what we’ve been doing for a long time.” That growth has put the SAT, formerly known as the Scholastic Aptitude Test, on the defensive, and not for the first time. The changes to the test—which go into place in the spring of 2016—follow the changes in 2005 after the University of California System threatened to stop considering it because of unhappiness with the analogy section of the test. The College Board said the changes to the test—including

taking away the 1/4 -point penalty for wrong answers— weren’t expected to change an individual student’s score for better or worse, but it acknowledged that the changes aim to make the test fairer overall. Reactions were mixed. At Seton Hall University in New

Jersey, Vice President of Enrollment Alyssa McCloud said she was pleased. “I think it will allow for greater access and opportunity for students,” she said. Neal McCluskey, an education analyst with the libertarian Cato Institute, was less impressed. “There is a lot

of talk about problem solving, rigor and challenging kids, but that’s not necessarily representing really high achievement,” he said, adding that he won’t know fully until more specifics are released.

Country Comments “It sounds like the same basic problem as Common Core appears to have. It’s lots of rhetoric with lofty goals, but at least right now there is no clear evidence that it actually hits those goals or pushes kids to meet them.” In another big change, the College Board said it would coordinate with colleges to help students with few resources better understand their options to reach college. To that end, low-income students will be able to apply to as many as four participating colleges for free. Mr. Coleman cited the lack of access to advanced-placement courses, which are also run by the College Board, among Latinos and AfricanAmericans. “These patterns of access, if allowed to continue, will build an iron wall of inequality into the next generation,” Mr. Coleman said. Steven Syverson, a board member with the National Association for College Admissions Counseling, expressed some skepticism at the College Board’s motives for arranging free college applications. “The other thing it will do is encourage students to take the SAT instead of the ACT,” he said. “I wonder if they’re looking out there and wondering, ‘What is the best way to get our market share back?’” A College Board spokeswoman said its changes are about boosting college readiness “by offering a solution that goes well beyond simply administering another test.” The free online tutorials, through a partnership with nonprofit education website Khan Academy, are designed to flatten the advantage of wealthier students, who are more likely to have access to private test tutors. Students will have access to SAT-specific tutorials at no cost. “Our intention is that this will be the best thing out there that happens to be free,” said founder Salman Khan. Test-preparation companies said any uncertainty generated by the new format would be a boon to their business. Changes to the SAT in 1994 and 2005 generated the two biggest years in terms of growth for Kaplan Test Prep Co., said Vice President Seppy Basili. “Any time there is a highstakes event, people want coaching, people are going to want an edge,” said Mr. Basili. The College Board also said it would work with teachers to align the test with the highschool curriculum to reflect “real demands of first-year college courses and career training programs.” “They are recognizing that the test has taken on a kind of cultural significance that gives the College Board an added responsibility to make sure it is used not only to evaluate students but to help them prepare for college,” said Marjorie Hass, president of Austin College in Sherman, Texas. Ms. Hass was involved in conversations with the College Board as it redesigned the test. Sonia Frank, a 17-year-old high-school junior in Chicago, has been doing test preparation for seven months and will take the ACT in April instead of the SAT because, she said, the former asks questions in a more direct language. But she said she was “a little bummed” that she can’t take the redesigned SAT, particularly given the removal of the penalty for

wrong answers. “If the new version of the SAT was available now, I would definitely be taking this over the ACT,” she said. “It’s just like everything I’ve been learning in school, where we are analyzing documents and seeing how we came to that answer. The idea of condensed math makes it much easier to narrow down what you want to study.” — Wall Street Journal —CC— My senior year I took the SAT test in Ada. There are two things I remember about that day almost a century later . . . There were questions on that test that I did not understand, much less know the answer. Secondly, and most important, after the test several of us that had ridden together went to Folger’s hamburger stand. That was my first time but certainly not the last. It was at that time I realized that a good hamburger made me much happier than a good test score . . . and it still does. —CC— And last of all, the following was on my desk Monday . . . possibly put there by my wife. Prayer for Aging Gracefully Create in me a happy heart, preserve my memory safe and sound – May all my aches be little ones, and let the things I lose be found. Send me, I pray, my daily smiles, a serving, too, of prunes and bran – Help me accept my graying hair, and keep the most of it I can. Remind me to forgive myself when senior moments come along – Provide a time for exercise so these old bones stay fit and strong. Lord, keep my attitude upbeat, and free from worry, cares and fears – Each day, help me appreciate the gift and goodness of my years. Amen. —CC— Today In History . . . Waves of Japanese troops assaulted the Philippine Islands at the outset of World War II, steadily overpowering Filipino and American defenders. The U.S. forces commanded by General Douglas MacArthur fought back but were short on supplies and vastly outnumbered. Surrender was inevitable. MacArthur received personal instructions to proceed to Australia without his soldiers, where he could organize a counterattack. He refused to leave his hungry, desperate men behind until President Roosevelt issued an order he could not ignore. The heartbroken general slipped past the Japanese navy by boat and plane to reach Australia. Once there, on March 20, 1942, he made a solemn pledge to his men back in the Philippines: “I shall return.” In April, unable to hold out any longer, some 75,000 American and Filipino troops on the Bataan Peninsula surrendered to the Japanese— the largest mass surrender in American history. The captors beat and murdered many

POWs during th4e infamous 65-mile Bataan Death March to prison camps. American and Filipino soldiers on nearby Corregidor Island fared no better. The Japanese also imprisoned thousands of American and other Allied civilians living in the Philippines, and for months assumed no responsibility for feeding them. By the summer of 1942, the United States had launched a counteroffensive. For two and a half years, Allied forces fought their way across the Pacific, island by island. On October 20, 1944, MacArthur finally waded back onto the

Philippines’ shores to make good on his pledge and liberate the islands. Other Highlights In History This Week . . . 1816—The U.S. Supreme Court affirms its right to review the decisions of state courts. 1922 – The USS Langley, converted from the collier USS Jupiter, is commissioned as the first U.S. Navy aircraft carrier. 1942 – In Australia, General Douglas MacArthur pledges to fight his way back to the Japanese-controlled Philippines, declaring “I shall return.”

2003 – One day after an air attack, a coalition of troops comprised mainly of U.S. and British forces invades Iraq, quickly overwhelming Saddam Hussein’s army. Thought For The Week ... Give, though your gift be small, still be a giver; Out of the little fount proceeds the river; Out of the river’s gifts gulfs soon will be Pouring their waters out, making a sea. Out of the sea again Heaven draws its showers, And to the fount imparts all its new powers. Thus in the circle born, gifts roll around, And in the blessings given, blessing is found.

Threads of Life Bradford Pear

This week the whole country seems to be transformed. Spring came on fast. The Bradford Pear trees are in bloom; the Jonquils are in bloom and one day toward the end of the week, the Texas Blue Bonnets appeared in full bloom in the yard. We have

had a harsh winter but spring seems to be making up for lost time. A second Blue Bird house was put up in another corner of my yard about two weeks

ago and this week I watched as three Blue Birds all seemed to be in very energetic combat. I could not decide if they were fighting to see who would get to live in the new house, or if a

Services for Thomas Arthur “Tom” Taylor, 76, of Allen were 1:00 p.m. Monday, March 24th, at the Church of God of Prophecy in Allen;

Rev. Ed Rutherford will officiate. Burial followed at Citra Cemetery. Mr. Taylor died on Friday, March 21, 2014, at his home. He was born September 29, 1937, in Troy, OK to Raymond John Taylor and Bertha Lee Crenshaw Taylor. Tom attended school at Mill Creek, and graduated from there in 1955. He went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in education from East Central State College, and

it was there that he met his wife, Agnes Gray Taylor. They were married on December 24, 1958, at Ada First Assembly of God, and had three sons: Jerry, Monte, and Joe. Tom later received a master’s degree from East Central, and taught Math and Science at Lost Creek, South Rock Creek, Tecumseh and Holdenville. Outside of school, and following his retirement from teaching, he raised a garden and ranched Black Angus cattle at the family farm in northern Coal County. He is survived by wife, Agnes Taylor; two sons and their spouses, Monte Lane and Carol Sue Taylor of Ada, and Joe and Mary Taylor of Allen; a sister, Betty Johnson of Oklahoma City; sistersin-law Constance Taylor of Durant and Peggy Taylor of Vamoosa; grandchildren, Shawn and Jennifer Taylor of Moore, Chris and Lindy Taylor of El Reno, Danielle and Preston Marshall of Moore, Casey and Tommy Long of Seminole, Michaela and Garrett Wright of Tribune, Kansas, and Jesse Taylor and Devin Taylor of Allen; great-grandchildren, Thomas Wright, Sullivan Taylor, Coen Taylor, Aiden Wright, and Silas Taylor; and several nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Bertha Taylor; siblings Raymond John Taylor, Jr., Bobby Joe Taylor, Jerry Thurston Taylor, and Toloah Taylor Bray; son, Jerry Thomas Taylor; and grandson, Jacob Nathaniel Taylor. Bearers were Monte Lane Taylor, Joe Walter Taylor, Shawn Taylor, Chris Taylor, Tommy Long, Preston Marshall and Garrett Wright. Honorary bearers were Nathan Johnson, David Taylor and Brandon Taylor. Arrangements were under the direction of Criswell Funeral Home, Ada.

Service held for Tom Taylor

Rites held for Glen Stringfellow Glenn Franklin Stringfellow was born November 8, 1941 to Sidney and Nellie (House) Stringfellow in Livermore, California. The family returned to Oklahoma in 1945 where they took up farming. Glenn attended grade school in Non for 8 years and then went on to graduate high school in Gerty. Glenn worked as a lineman for several years in El Reno before returning to his roots of Gerty and Non to farm with his dad. He also worked at Oklahoma State Penitentiary before turning to farming full time. The farming continued into the early 80s when Glenn ventured into other employment. He drove a mail truck for many years before retiring due to health reasons. Glenn loved to fish and always had stories to tell and advice to give on where to go and what to catch them on. When he could, he enjoyed going to the gulf and trying his luck there, too. He was always successful where ever he fished. Deer hunting was another passion he had as well. He could spot them when no one else could. Glenn also enjoyed collecting arrowheads and had that keen eye for spotting them. Only his son Mike has that same ability and he carries on that legacy. Gardening was another thing Glenn enjoyed. The love of the soil gets in your blood, and whether peanut farming, growing vegetables, or growing roses, that love never left him. Roses still bloom today that he planted years earlier. He enjoyed instilling the love for these in his kids and sharing those experiences with them. He is survived by his sister Linda Jones; his sons Rex Palmer, Mike Stringfellow and Todd Stringfellow; daughter Diana Jones; as well as 12 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and numerous nephews, one niece, and a host of other family and friends. These memories and many more will live on for those who know and loved him. Funeral service was held at 1:30 pm on Tuesday, March 25th, at the Harvest Time Tabernacle Church in Holdenville, Oklahoma. Jimmie Freeman and James Anderson officiated. Pallbearers were David Jones, Jake Jones, Shane Taylor, Kevin Flynn, Blaine Stringfellow, and Rob Jones. Honorary bearers were Steven Jones and Shean Jones. Interment followed the service at the Calvin Cemetery in Calvin, Oklahoma. Services were under the direction of Hudson-Phillips Funeral Home in Holdenville, Oklahoma.

couple of them were trying to mate and the other seemed to be trying to get the pair apart. Anyway, I first noticed the fight in the back yard. It continued there for fifteen or more minutes and then they began to move around the house and ended up in the front yard. Still going at it, tooth and toe nail, as my mother would say. I don’t know who won because I had to get inside and go to work. For the past couple of weeks, these birds have been flying up to the cars in the yard and

seemed to be looking in the side windows. I think they have discovered their picture there and they keep coming back to check on that bird. However, these birds are presenting me with a lot of enjoyment, except for the days I have to take the car to the car wash and get rid of what they left on my car. I have some very small pecans picked up last year that were too small to bother with and I have been feeding those to the birds all winter. Cardinals and other birds have stayed around as long as the food is out. If they have water and food, they seem to be content.

King and Jewel (Watson) King, born on October 23, 1944, in Fort Cobb, Oklahoma. His childhood was spent in Lake Arthur, New Mexico until his family moved when he was six years old to Tehachapi, California, where he grew up and attended school.  He married Nomah Cole in Tehachapi on November 19, 1962.  He worked as a heavy equipment operator for California Portland Cement of

Tehachapi, retiring after 32 years in May of 2000. The family moved to Atwood in 2003.

Services are under direction of Fisher Funeral Home of Holdenville. www.fisherfh. net.


One Pharmacist’s View I enjoy hearing from my readers. It makes writing this weekly bit more worthwhile. I got some new stories after writing about the poor chickens in Key West and the illicit laying hens up at Edmond. Last week I read yet another big “chicken” story from “The Oklahoman.” It seems these very sociable (yet socially unacceptable) critters are fairly controversial, and somewhat unloved, all over the metro. Most towns and cities have codes against our backyard feathered friends that give us eggs and cheap entertainment. Folks in OKC owning city lots adding up to less than one acre are not allowed to have any chickens. Those with over an acre can have 4 hens. Class envy is setting in. Well anyway I had a few

Hearing from Readers

letters from people telling me about their chickens, past and present and I think just about all were sort of in favor of people owning chickens—well let me amend that—in favor of themselves owning a few for those delicious fresh eggs. Not so much in favor of their nasty neighbors owning any. Mostly people fear the chickens will bring odor, flies and unwanted crowing. People having chickens usually avoid buying roosters as they are the ones that do the crowing and trouble making. Unlike the human species the female chickens are the least vocal. They just tend to their business and produce eggs while they ply their gossip.

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ When their church building burned to the ground, the members of the church searched far and wide for a temporary meeting place until a new building could be constructed. As Sunday approached, they had been unable to find a suitable place except they had been offered the use of a large bar since it was not used on Sundays. By Saturday, they found that they did not have a choice and in desperation, agreed to meet in the bar. As the members gathered on Sunday morning they found that the bar owner had failed to take home his parrot that he kept in the bar. As the bird was silent, they went ahead

Chickens are not good housekeepers. Their owners have to keep their chicken coops clean, make sure their birds are healthy and vermin free. They are also pretty irresponsible about not only housekeeping and have poor bathroom habits (the chickens not the owners). They demand lots of food and water which ain’t cheap. In fact, you can buy eggs a lot cheaper down at the Allen Food Center than you can from laying hens. I wrote about a friend named Alfred France last week over at Stonewall and about cats. I got some remarkable cat stories back and a lesson on hi-life. This product (if you were mean enough) and many Stonewall boys were, could be applied, in a sneaky way, to an unwary cat or dog. It caused burning and itching as it reacted with animal fur and can only be classified

as cruel. However, it did happen and a cat or dog that had been “Hi-Lifed” was not likely to come back anymore. Hi-Life was available in little 4 oz. cans labeled Carbon Disulfide. Special thanks for Dick True out at Salt Lake City for his story on Hi-Lifed cats. I think. I heard from an old friend out at Amarillo (Jess Roan formerly of Stonewall) who also remembered Alfred France. He shared a wonderful story (starring Alfred of course) and himself going to the edge of town to test fire a large pistol Alfred found deep in a cedar chest at his house. Not his, of course. Some relative had left it there thinking it would not be noticed nor molested. But alas, it was. Anyway, when the gun was fired Alfred was totally unprepared for the noise, the

recoil and kick. The gun somehow flew back and hit Alfred real hard in the head and made his forehead bleed badly. Jess, I suppose was looking downrange and thus found Alfred injured and bleeding which caused him to conclude in a swift moment that he had somehow shot himself in the head. He took off in a run to get help. However, he and the local police department (Tommy Crow) were met by a bloody and confused Alfred on the road. He was all right. News of his sudden death and his remarkable reappearance swept Stonewall but I heard there was a sort of mixed reaction about the outcome. It’s been a great week for us and I hope as much for you. Be sure and go to church Sunday. Send me a story and let me know how you’re doing. Wayne Bullard, DPh

with the service. However just as the preacher arose to speak, the parrot broke his silence, “New day, same old crowd!” Needless to say, there were many red faces as the bird revealed that he had seen these people before. When we put our faith in Jesus to save us from our sins, aren’t we supposed to quit living in sin and become “new creatures?” (2 Cor. 5:17) How can we expect God to forgive us of our sins if we continue in sin? The Apostle Paul instructed the Colossians, “put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man.” (Col 3:8-10) If we really trust Jesus to save us, won’t we demonstrate trust in Him by doing as he commands? We can’t Liitle Sky Frazier saw some action on the mound during the Allen festival during spring break. go on being the “same old people” without any change in our words and actions.

Lady Mustangs keeping busy softball schedule Coach Jeremy Strong is happy with progress so far this season By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Lady Mustang softball team has been busy, busy, and busy during the early portion of the slowpitch season. Coach Jeremy Strong took the diamond squad into action almost immediately following the end of basketball season. “We have barely had time to get ready,” Coach Strong said. “We had one practice for softball and went right into the games. That is not an easy thing to do. Softball is a sport that needs practice to get ready to play in game situations. We didn’t have much time to do that!” Allen played six games before stepped away for last week’s spring break vacation. The Lady Mustangs were 2-4 during the span. But the coach knows his squad faced some outstanding opponents. He was not disappointed with the overall results. “We played good teams and we made some improvement,” he said. “We lost 8-0 to Wayne … but you have to remember that Wayne is the defending state champions. We faced good competition and we made strides in several areas. We know we have to be on the field playing games to make improvements. I believe we have done that.” Here are the scores from the week of action prior to spring break: Stratford 16, Allen 0 Mill Creek 11, Allen 1 Allen 14, Bray Doyle 4 Wayne 8, Allen 0 Allen 11, Vanoss 6 Asher 20, Allen 0 On another topic, the coach is delighted to see such a large group of players on this spring’s softball team. “We have 24 girls out for softball,” he said. “Our numbers are good. We have a bunch of girls wanting to play. Of course you can only get 10 at a time. But it is exciting to know that we have so many playing softball for us.” As for the recent games, Allen opened the stretch with a 16-0 loss March 10 to the Stratford Lady Bulldogs. Stratford scored eight times in the bottom of the first inning and eight more in the second inning. Allen was Gary S. Nuckols 606 E. Poplar Holdenville

blanked in the 3-inning runrule loss. The Lady Mustangs were limited to 4 hits in the game. AHS had one single each from Savanna Brown, Jessi Merriman, Taryn Wofford and Stormi Harden. On March 13, Mill Creek’s Lady Bullfrogs notched a 11-1 win over Allen. The Lady Mustangs took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Mill Creek rallied with 5 runs in the first inning, 1 runs in the second inning, 2 runs in the third, and 3 runs in the fourth. Allen was limited to three hits. Taryn Wofford led with a triple that drove home Tessa Black with AHS’ lone run. Meagan Beavert and Brittany Johnson added a single each in the loss. In the Vanoss tournament, Allen romped to a 14-4 runrule victory over the BrayDoyle Donkeys. The Lady Mustangs scored four times in the first inning, four times in the second inning and six times in the third inning. B-D countered with its only run in the bottom of the fourth and final inning. Here are the hitting heroes for Allen: Jessi Merriman, 4-4, with a double, 2 run scored, 1 RBI Sandra Rowsey, 3-3, with a double, 3 RBI, 3 runs scored Ashley Cross, 3-3, with 2 runs scored Tessa Black, 2-2, with 4 RBI Meagan Beavert, 2-3, with a sac RBI, 2 runs scored Faith Caldwell, 2-3 Brittney Johnson, 1-2, with 1 run scored Kellyn Black, 1-2, with 1 run scored Chelsea Wedlow, 1-3, with a double The next game for Allen was a March 13 showdown with the Wayne Bulldogs. The defending state champions notched an 8-0 win in five innings. Wayne scored twice in the first inning, four times in the third inning, once in the fourth inning and once in the fifth inning. Allen went scoreless but did manage four hits. Faith Caldwell was the AHS leader with a perfect 2-for-2 showing at the plate. Savanna Brown and Jessi Merriman

each added one single in two plate appearances. The next outing for Allen was much more fun. Coach Strong’s girls bounced back into the win column with a solid 11-6 win over the Vanoss Lady Wolves. Vanoss led 1-0 after one inning. Allen rallied with two runs in the top of the second inning. Vanoss came right back with another run in the bottom of the second to even the score at 2-2. Allen countered with 3 runs in the third inning and 6 runs in the fourth inning. The Lady Mustangs were now sitting on a solid 11-2 lead. The only

additional score was from Vanoss. The Lady Wolves scratched out 4 runs to make the final score 11-6 in Allen’s favor. The Lady Mustangs clubbed out 11 hits en route to the win. Here is the complete list of those contributing to the one-sided win: Sandra Rowsey, 2-3, with 2 doubles Meagan Beavert, 2-3, with a triple Ashley Cross, 2-3 Jessi Merriman, 2-3 Taryn Wofford, 1-2 Savanna Brown, 1-2 Faith Caldwell, 1-2 Kellyn Black, 1-3

On March 14, Allen continued the roller-coaster ride with a free-fall to a 20-0 loss to the Asher Lady Indians. Asher exploded for 2 runs in the first inning, 7 runs in the second inning, and 9 runs in the bottom of the third and final inning. Allen’s offensive unit was silenced in the game. “We did not have a hit,” said Coach Strong. “We just could not get anything going with our bats.” Looking to this week, Coach Strong was hoping for better results. The Lady Mustangs were going to Stonewall on Monday afternoon. They were scheduled for a trip to Stratford on Tuesday. “We’ll only play the two games,” the coach said. “There is a big FCLA state convention this week and we have several girls qualified for it. That’s a big deal around here, so we won’t be playing again until next week.” --RWB Conf Tournament March 10 Stratford 16, Allen 0 Allen – 000 – (0-4-3) Strat – 88x – (16-9-1) Allen hitting Savanna Brown, single Jessi Merriman, single Taryn Wofford, single Stormi Harden, single --March 13 Mill Creek 11, Allen 1 Alln – 100 0 – (1-3-3) MC – 512 3 – (11-4-0) Allen hitting Taryn Wofford, triple, RBI Meagan Beavert, single Brittany Johnson, single Tessa Black, 1 run scored --Vanoss tournament Allen 14, Bray Doyle 4 All – 446 0 – (14-19-0) BD – 300 1 – (4-8-0) Allen hitting Jessi Merriman, 4-4, with a double, 2 run scored, 1 RBI Sandra Rowsey, 3-3, with a double, 3 RBI, 3 runs scored Ashley Cross, 3-3, with 2 runs scored Tessa Black, 2-2, with 4 RBI Meagan Beavert, 2-3, with a sac RBI, 2 runs scored Faith Caldwell, 2-3 Brittney Johnson, 1-2, with 1 run scored Kellyn Black, 1-2, with 1 run scored Chelsea Wedlow, 1-3, with a double --March 13 Wayne 8, Allen 0 All – 000 00 – (0-4-0) Way – 204 11 – (8-10-0) Allen hitting Faith Caldwell, 2-2 Savanna Brown, 1-2 Jessi Merriman, 1-2 --March 14 Allen 11, Vanoss 6 Allen – 023 60 – (11-12-2) Vanoss – 110 004 – (6-5-2) Allen hitting Sandra Rowsey, 2-3, with 2 doubles Meagan Beavert, 2-3, with a triple Ashley Cross, 2-3 Jessi Merriman, 2-3 Taryn Wofford, 1-2 Savanna Brown, 1-2 Faith Caldwell, 1-2 Kellyn Black, 1-3 --March 14 Asher 20, Allen 0 Allen – 000 – (0-0-9) Asher – 279 – (20-12-0) Allen hitting No hits

Revival Starts Friday at Atwood Baptist

Revive—1: to restore to consciousness or life 2: to restore from a depressed, inactive, or unused state 3: to renew in the mind or memory. Sometimes it’s good to check with Merriam Webster when it comes to words we know but don’t know well. This week, March 27, 28, 29th, our church is holding a Revival Meeting. A couple of the definitions for the word “revival” are a period of renewed religious interest and an often highly emotional evangelistic meeting or series of meetings. Based on these definitions, we don’t want a revival meeting at our church. A highly emotional series of meetings might check “revival” off our list of things to do, but it wouldn’t make noticeable changes in souls and lives. What we really want is to be restored to spiritual life from a depressed, inactive, or unused state. Yes, this week you’re getting two sermons for the price of one, but at least the preacher’s will probably be shorter than mine. The revival services begin at 7:00 each evening. Rev.

Clint Dawkins from Sharon Baptist Church in Shawnee, is the evangelist for the revival, and the worship leader is Rev. Speedy Briggs from the Freedom Crossroads Biker Church. Please come join us for the services and invite someone to come with you. This Sunday James Hammonds sang “In the Sweet Bye and Bye” as the special music selection. Earlier, on Cowboy Corner, a Sunday morning radio program, they too made the point that many of the things that look huge while we’re in the valleys of our life look small when we’re on the mountain top. Same verse, different authors, different songs, but it’s a good reminder no matter how it’s said--I mean sang. Rev. Karch’s message was from Luke 5:1-11 and Acts 2:41-47. Revival only happens if the church gets on fire about being revived. Church members must be concerned enough to be in earnest prayer for themselves and for others. They must also understand that God loves every person, even those like Peter, who believed he

was too sinful to be allowed anywhere near Jesus. As each of the disciples met Jesus, they gave up everything to follow Him. Once he met Him, Zaccheus repented and completely changed his life focus. When you put your heart and soul into worshiping the Lord, you’ll find that there is no greater excitement than serving Him. Every day you’ll be looking forward to what He’s going to do next. God can do miracles. You just have to be ready. On the Day of Pentecost the disciples conducted the first great revival meeting. Three thousand people were saved and baptized that day. Then they started sharing the love of Jesus with the people around them. People were saved because they saw something that was real in these people who now believed that Jesus was the Son of God. Real revivals come when we put our heart and soul into it. God will change your life, but only if you allow him to. There’s a difference between a revival meeting and a revival.

The Richmond Avenue Freewill Baptist Church is pleased to announce that Chris Hester and Mark Huitt will be in concert this Sunday, March 30th, during the morning service, starting at 10:45 am. The concert is free and everyone is invited to attend, a love

offering will be taken. For more information call (580) 857-2476. Chris Hester’s calling in life, to share salvation with others, began many years ago. At the age of 5, when most children were interested in riding bikes or playing little league baseball, he sang his first solo in church.

Carolyn’s Hair Shop (580)320-7494 • CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT • CAROLYN SANDERS

At the age of 7 his mother discovered him playing the piano and singing although he had never received a formal piano lesson. While traveling and singing on the road in the early 90s, Chris met a young lady who shared many of his same visions. They married a year to the day they met and have since worked together promoting , singing, arranging and producing music. The Hesters and their two children, live in Oklahoma when they are not on the road or in Nashville, Tennessee working in the music industry. Allen’s own Mark Huitt has been performing gospel music for over 28 years in churches and for community events in Texas and Oklahoma. He appeared on The Grapevine Opry in Texas at the age of 17 and has since performed at the Stratford Gospel Celebration, the Konawa Outdoor Gospel Singing, the Seminole Gospel Sing, the Yukon Gospel Celebration, and made appearances in Branson on “Jammin for Jesus” and the “Southern Gospel Praise” TV show. Mark is currently the host of “The Saturday Morning Gospel Music Show” on The Gospel Station, 88.3 and 105.1, and often makes personal appearances throughout the year speaking to audiences about The Gospel Station. Mark’s ministry is of reconciliation and new beginnings. “God is a God of second chances and, no matter where you have been or what you have done, God is ready to forgive you and save you – and to work a healing in your lie. You just need to ask Him to.”

day lives were being transformed. The work begun in those early days was unlike anything the world had ever seen.  That work continues to this day.  It is not limited to a building or a denomination or a format.  It is still about every believer living for Christ and reaching out to their neighbors.  Every group of believers needs to re-examine their priorities and commitment.  If we will once again become as committed as the early church God will continue to “add to (our) number daily.”

At the hearing, the Court will decide whether to approve the Petition for Summary Administration and the final account and petition for determination of heirs, legatees and devisees and distribution of the estate by the Petitioner.
