With this growth, its needs have also grown. We need new lights for our field. In the Fall there were several home games cut short due to the lights being inopperable. We will be resurfacing the adjacent field. Due to the number of girls playing Jr High and High school softball, we are try to get an adjacent field ready so it can be usable as well. We need metal for an outfield fence. We need new back stops for both fields. We also have architects plans to expand our dugouts and bring them upto the standerds needed for high school softball. We also need additional bleechers. All entry fees to this event will benefit the Allen Softball Programs, and will also go towards improvements to the softball facilities. The Mustang Color Stampede will be a 5k fun run beginning and finishing at the Mustang Trails walking track.

C ountry Comments by Bill Robinson, Publisher
Everything has changed from the “good old days” . . . including death. Not too long ago, dying was simple. You died, the family bought a casket, had a service and you were buried. A few of us “old timers” still want it done the old way. However, a new generation is looking for ways to make their final exit memorable. Do you know about Death Cafés? They’re still pretty new on the scene. If you imagine them as not-quiteunderground meetups where you sit around and enjoy refreshments while musing over the morbid, tantalizing subject of human demise, you’ve pretty much got the
concept. Sound like fun? No? Well, Death Cafés are kind of creepy. But lots of people are eager to gather and gab about their secret concerns: “Why do I fear death so?” “What happens to bodies in graves?” In fact, everything about death is inherently intriguing, including that most eternal of questions: What do I want done with my body after I’m gone? In America, where our ashes can be spread at the 18th hole or converted into precious jewelry or shot into Earth orbit, traditional body-in-steel-casket burial is no longer the goto choice. We’re a society
that prides itself on novelty, including what death care executives (yes, that’s what they call themselves) refer to as “final disposition” of our corpses. The most trendy among today’s options are “natural burials,” in which you may go green by having yourself lowered into the

Out & About Allen
Adam Randell of Lawton was out & about during the weekend visiting his grandparents, Jerry and Norma Milne. —O&A— Robin and Dixie Sanders made a Mother’s Day trip to Shawnee to visit their mother/grandmother, Dixie Roberson. Also visiting were Robins sister, Crystal and Kyle Lowrey and daughter Kylee, and niece Myca Roberson.
—O&A— L ou Yargey and son, Leonard Frazier, traveled to Noble to see her sister, Linda Kay Berry, over the weekend. —O&A— C oy West and Sally Stafford have returned from a recent weeklong vacation in Branson, Missouri. While there they took in several shows including Jonah, Country Jubilee, Jim Dandy, Clay Cooper, the
Country Comments cans are just batty when they see what we do with our caskets,” says Cynthia Beal, founder of Natural Burial Company. Some of the newer alternatives to burial are a blast– literally. Jeff Staab, who bills himself as “the world’s leading authority on the scattering of ashes,” will gladly set you up with an Ash Scattering Machine ($500 per use) or a Loved One Launcher ($350 to own), both of which can propel a mixture of cremains and, if you wish, confetti for a distance of 75 feet; the airstream can carry the particles for miles beyond, says Staab. “I’ve even been along on a ski slope for a Dixie cup toast-and-toss,” boasts Staab, who runs a company called Cremation Solutions. “But you don’t want to be downwind for that!” “Uh, is that even legal?” I wonder. “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” Staab replies. Another popular trend is to have a portion of your cremated remains pressed into a custom-made under-sea reef formation. Also hot is the be-some-bling option. A few ashes are stuffed into kitschy jewelry; be prepared to drop as much as $19,000 to have a lock of hair or some ashes compressed into an actual diamond. But the most grand way of saying sayonara has got to be the space journey. Charles Chafer, the CEO of Celestis, says his company can get a smidgen of what was once you into a payload container sent to outer space. Cost: as little as $1,000. If you’d like your ashes slammed into the moon’s surface, that’s more like $10,000. It’s pricey, but “going to the moon is a hopeful statement,” Chafer says. Less ambitious, but more “final” in a sense, is a controversial procedure developed in Scotland just now gaining limited support in the U.S. This novel solution turns bodies into, well, a solution. The technical name is alkaline hydrolysis. Let’s just say this basically amounts to chemically converting corpses into something not unlike a broth that might be poured down a drain at your local Jiffy Lube. With all the plotting by savvy death care marketers, you’d understand why some might nervously wrestle with the choice about their body’s afterlife. I asked myself who in all the country is possibly best positioned to make a considered decision on such a thing. I figured it might be Mary Roach, author of the national best-seller Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers. So, I ask her about her own final disposition. “I’m in a deep state of denial. It’s embarrassing,” Roach tells me. “I like the trend toward green burials. I like the frugality.” Or, she says, “Maybe I’ll have my ashes scattered somewhere. Or I’ll donate my body. Or, uh…” Indeed, it can be a particularly tough call these days because, more than ever, the style you specify for your exit expresses a powerful final statement about your life. — Cable Neuhaus World Magazine As for me, I am much more interested in where I go than how I go. —CC— I am reminded of the story shared by Lee Roseman .. . During my mother’s memorial, my five-year-old granddaughter could not stop staring at the urn that contained her ashes. “Is that really Great-Grandma in there?” she asked her mother. “Yes, it is.” “Funny,” she said. ”I always thought she was taller.” —CC— One of my favorite “death” stories happened many years ago at an all night gospel singing. After one group finished, my mother went up to the pianist and asked her, “Was that you or your sister that died last year?” The very kind lady assured my mother that it was her sister.

Threads of Life by Cleo Emerson LeVally When a person becomes a resident of a nursing home, it becomes their home. Those who are able can still pursue hobbies, have collections, etc. When Daisy Killingsworth, a Healdton artist, entered the nursing home, she was still able to paint. She had a table in her room with all her painting supplies and painted almost daily. I bought a painting she did while in the nursing home in Healdton.
Nursing home living Another patient collected necklaces, and she hung them on the wall of her room. She had some beauties. She loved to take you in her room and talk about them. I have a nephew who is a resident in a nursing home and I visit often. I get to know other residents who live there. A couple of weeks ago one of them met me in the hall and said he

wanted to show me something. I went to his room with him, and he proudly showed me two tomato plants he had on a table. One of them had a blossom on it. He told me it had just appeared that morning and he was so proud of it. Both plants were of good size and growing fine in his room. This week he found me again as I was visiting and asked me to come with him out into the back yard where the plants had been moved, and he again was so happy to show them off. They were really doing well and I was glad for him that he had them to enjoy. I asked him what he was going to do with the tomatoes when they grew and ripened. ‘Eat them, of course” was his reply. Life in a nursing home is geared to what a resident is able to do. My nephew was born brain damaged and has been a resident for many years. He loves pens.

him, if they will give him their pen. He also must have a pad in his room that he can draw on. He draws a picture of himself, over and over. Some years ago, he had a side walker, and he always drew that figure with a side walker. Today he just draws a stick figure, but he smokes a pipe and the figure that he draws always has a pipe in his mouth. He had two pads and each time I visit him, both sides of those pads, have this figure of a smoker on each page. I tear them off so he can have clean pages
to draw on. Nothing varies. It is the same each day. He likes to watch TV. He has a DVD player and plays records. He likes to sit out in the courtyard. The residents can pretty much do what they are able to do while living in the nursing home. The nursing home has a large TV in the lounge area for the residents to watch and they have bingo games to attend each weekday in the dining room. Coffee is always available for them in the dining room and they can go there, have a cup of coffee and visit with other residents. It is their home.

One Pharmacist’s View P earlie Golden, a 93 year old Hearn, Texas resident, was made to take a new driver’s test. Pearlie failed the test and Roy Jones, her nephew, drove her home. Pearly, apparently upset about the loss of her driving rights, decided not to abide by the orders to stop driving her car. The concerned nephew refused to give Ms. Golden her car keys and that’s when she drew her .38 pistol and got after a now concerned and terrified nephew. Roy called 911 and Officer Stephen Stem responded. Pearlie opened fire and the officer

shot her dead. End of Story? Not hardly. The black lady had her friends and it turned out that Officer Steve didn’t. A gathering of “concerned” black citizens led by something called the Quannel X Black Panther group soon threatened to riot if the City Council didn’t fire Steve Stem, a white officer. At first it would seem that Stem had a good case. After all didn’t the lady open fire on him? Wasn’t his life at risk? Wasn’t Pearlie in the wrong? Well it would
Light from God’s Word
Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ “Why are there so many denominations?” Where did all of the churches come from? Did Jesus establish all of them? Jesus promised, “I will build my Church.” Please note that He said, “church” and not “churches.” He did not promise to build many church, but a singular church. In addition, Jesus prayed that all who believe in Him “may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us.” (John 17:2021) Since Jesus prayed that all His followers would be “one,” doesn’t it seem unlikely that He approves of the hundreds of divisions (denominations)? So where did they all come from? To answer this, let’s note two Scriptures from the Apostle Paul. First, Paul told the elders (also called Bishops) of the church in Ephesus, “after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse
things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.” (Acts 20:29-30) Does he not indicate that divisions will arise from men teaching “perverse” things to draw away disciples after them? The New International Version says men will “distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.” (Acts 20:30) Who can deny that departures from the teaching of the Apostles have resulted in many denominations? Second, Paul wrote in 1 Timothy 4:1-3, “that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.” In this passage, Paul even names two false teachings of those who have departed from the faith and divided Christ’s followers. Does he not also name the source of these divisive false teaching – “deceiving spirits,” “demons” and “lies spoken in hypocrisy?” Do not be deceived, there are many denominations because men have departing from the truth. Denominations are of men, not of God!

seem that way but the citizens had another card to play and it was the fact that this wasn’t the first person Officer Stem had shot and killed. In fact, Stem answered a call at a car wash in 2012 where a 28 year old black guy named Tederalle Sotchell was shooting a gun out a car window. When the police officer (Stephen Stem) arrived and tried to defuse the situation he came under fire and in the resulting shootout, killed the offender. Steve Stem was fired from his job in Bryan, Texas but he was never charged with a crime since the offender was firing shot at not only him but anyone he saw. Thus the shots were fired in his own self-defense as well as in the line of duty. Officer Stem was then offered a job in Hearn and sometime later he met up with the 93 year old Pearlie Golden—whom he shot. I guess the moral of this story is that you might get by with one shoot-out that results in the death of a minority member but you better not go for two. Especially if it’s a female and she is 93 years old. Perhaps you should duck and run or just “bite the bullet.” But enough about that. M y niece, Melinda Powell of Mitchell, Nebraska, got a real nice snow over the weekend— if there is such a thing as a real nice snow in the middle of May. But Roz Bullard who lives up in Gillette, Wyoming said the snow storm missed them but they had a lot of bad winds. I wonder how high the winds have to get in windy Gillette before they are classified
as bad. You have to be tough to live in Gillette. As a matter of fact I’m beginning to think you have to be tough to live in Oklahoma what with the bad weather we’ve had here. The recent concern that lined the faces of worshipers at First Baptist church was not such much concern for the lost sinners in their community as it was for their own wellbeing. I promised that I was finished with the squirrel stories at church and I am. This is it. But I couldn’t help but notice that the good crowd of worshipers on Mother’s
Day were keeping an eye on the upper reaches of the auditorium. You never know just what might jump out and get in your hair. But I think the distractions are all gone now and this morning I will check the squirrel trap for the last time (I hope) and let the issue drift off into the past. Just another memory of many in the tradition-rich 112 year old church. Be sure and go to your church next Sunday. I think it’s safe. And have a good weekend. Wayne Bullard, DPh. email@example.com

We had a wonderful Mother’s Day service. All the mothers there received carnations and a plant was given to the oldest, youngest, and the one with the most children. Ruth DeShields received the one for the oldest, Jami Cassell received the one for the youngest, and the preacher’s daughter, Jennifer, received the one for the most children. Ruth was blessed to have her four children in the services. We love “all” our mothers and want to give them the recognition they deserve. Our quartet sang an old favorite “Where Could I Go But To the Lord.” Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from 1 Peter 3:1-7 and entitled “Developing an Inward Beauty.” Outward beauty looks good on the outside. Even the
most beautiful aren’t beautiful enough--they need improvement. Outward beauty eventually fades. Real beauty comes from the inside. Peter, inspired by the Holy Spirit, describes an “unfading beauty.” It is found in “your inner self.” It is marked by a “gentle and quiet spirit.” Faith in God inspires an unshakable inner confidence. This inner beauty is far more attractive than anything on the outside. It is a life of “purity and reverence.” Beautiful, godly women have impacted their husbands for eternity. These same beautiful women have raised amazing children. The media may ignore them or even make fun of them but their value is unmistakable. Our world needs more women “who put their hope in God” to make themselves
beautiful. As they quietly live for God they will surely be making our world beautiful each day. Dare to live as though inner beauty really is more important then the outer appearance, because it is! We have several important dates on our calendar. Next Sunday night at 5:00 we will be having a graduation party for Meagan and Cody Lively, and Keith Sanford. We invite everyone who knows these young people to come. May 25th we will have our Memorial Day services at the cemetery at 2:00. The Baptist church will be in charge . J une 2-6 we will have our Bible School from 9-11:30. Plan on sending your children and grandchildren.
Atwood First Baptist Over the years I’ve come to believe that Mothers can be divided into 3 different categories when it comes to being “recognized” at church on Mother’s Day. Some regard winning the rose for being the youngest, oldest, or having the most children as right up there with catching the bride’s bouquet. Others consider not attending church on Mother’s Day at all for fear they will “win” in one of the three traditional categories. The third group just breathes a sigh of relief when they’ve safely weathered another year without having to walk up to receive their corsage or rose. This Mother’s Day, the air conditioner and a couple of our nothing-if-not-considerate deacons cooperated to give a consolation prize. The air conditioner started it all by refusing to kick on. The deacons quickly took their cue, though, and leaped to open the windows. Of course this gave a gust of wind access to the church auditorium and suddenly we bad hair day mothers were in the same hair league as the mothers whose hairdos were lookin’ good when they left home. T hen Kathy Spillman brought our thoughts back to what the services are all about by singing “If it Wasn’t for the Lighthouse.” It’s always good to hear Kathy sing, and everyone could certainly recall a time when looking to Jesus was the only thing that kept them from foundering on the rocks of life. R ev. Karch’s message was about a mother’s most important responsibilities and was based in II Timothy 3:15; Exodus 20:12; and I Kings 3:16-28. A mother’s highest responsibility to her children beyond nurturing and protecting them is to bring them up in the church so that they will know how
to be saved. If any of her children have not accepted Christ as their Savior by the time they are adults, she should continue to reach out to help them to find salvation. Her next responsibility is to teach them to honor their parents and their elders in general. She should teach them the Golden Rule and to use it as a guide for how to treat other people. Closely connected with this is that she teach them right from wrong. Her third responsibility is to teach her children to respect God and to follow His guidance. Moses’ mother followed God’s guidance when He showed her a way to protect her child from being killed. Because she listened to God, her son Moses grew up to deliver his people from bondage. In the third chapter of I Kings, we read how Solomon determined which woman was the real moth-
er of the child they both claimed. Of course, it was the one who was willing to sacrifice her own wants in order that her child might live. Mothers have always sacrificed for their children, usually without thinking twice about it. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was the ultimate example of a courageous, loving mother. Trusting God, she agreed to give birth to a son who would become the Savior of the world. What is more, she knew early on that He would have to die and that this “sword” would pierce her soul. Still, she found the courage to be the mother she needed to be. M otherhood is a challenge, but it is also a privilege. In Proverbs 31, each mother who fulfills her responsibilities is reminded that her children and husband will rise up and call her blessed.

THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, MAY 15, 2014---PAGE 13
A little Allen History
Old newspapers can offer some very interesting information. We thank Stormy Rinehart for sharing this article recently found by his aunt, Annabelle Nanny of Atoka. Unfortunately we don’t know the year the article first ran but we wanted to share it with our readers.
Allen History Dates Back To Pre-Statehood; Now Oil Town
The town of Allen, located in the extreme northeastern part of Pontotoc county and the second largest town in the county, was named for Allen McCall, son of Bill McCall, a deputy United States marshal who lived there The history of the town dates to 1886 when the elder McCall built the first log store and stocked it with a few groceries and dry goods. The merchandise was hauled from Atoka, the nearest railroad point. The post office was established in 1887 after a number of the residents of the sparsely settled area had signed a petition stating they would get their mail a
the office. Dr. Gilmore was the first postmaster and the mail was carried on horseback from Stonewall. Early Settlers T he first white settlers around the town of Allen included Bill McCall, George McCall, Dr. Gilmore, Ed Gilmore, Bud Donaghe, Cal Donaghe and the McElroys. Pink and Bud Donaghe built the first cotton gin in Allen a short time after McCall’s store was opened. The new gin helped establish Allen as a trading center and had much to do with the development of the area. Besides being Allen’s first postmaster, Dr. Gilmore also was its first preacher, first teacher, organized the first Sunday school, the first Masonic lodge, was the first doctor in the town and later served as its first mayor. Railroad Built Another important step in the growth of Allen came when the K.O.&G railroad was built through the town in 1909. Allen was made the freight division point and much rail traffic was handled through there. The townsite promoters were Fred Russell, Bud
Donaghe and a Mr. Young. Like Stonewall and Ada, the railroad did not pass through the part of Allen around which the original town was built. It passed about one-half mile to the northwest. T he promoters of the townsite desired to move the town from its old settlement to within reach of the railroad. Business lots were given to the owners of stores and they were thereby induced to move to the location of the present business block of Allen. J ohn Pegg, Will Pegg, Mr. Cummings and Mr. Leonard took the leading part in building the business houses of Allen. M.B. Donaghe built a splendid hotel. Allen’s First School The first school taught in Allen was in Old Town and was taught by Dr. Gilmore in a log building. It was erected by the community, who donated all labor. The cracks were “chinked” and seats were split logs with
long wooden pegs for legs. The children held their slates on their laps because there were no desks or backs for the rude seats. About 15 pupils attended the school, the teacher received about $1 a month for each child for salary. Oil was discovered northwest of Allen in 1914 and Pontotoc county saw its first real oil boom develop. At first the oil was found at a depth of 750 to 800 feet in shallow sand and the production was light but the development was steady and expanding. Finally during the period from 1925 to 1930 some deeper wells were drilled and the boom reached a peak, swelling the population of Allen to 3,000 or more persons at one time. Oil Booms Towns A number of smaller “mushroom” towns grew up about Allen and the city became a buzzing little metropolis. Two oil refineries were established and one, now
operated as the Sunray Oil Refinery, still handles a large volume of crude oil produced in the Allen and other fields. T he town of Allen of course, is not the boom city that it once was but it still is an important little city, serving the large number of people engaged in farming and stock raising in the vicinity, as well as the families engaged in the production of oil in the vicinity. A four year high school, a newspaper, several churches of leading denominations, almost all lines of retail establishments are maintained in Allen. I t is situated on State Highway 12, an important route that connects Ada with U.S. Highway 75 at Calvin and provides a direct connection to Holdenville via State Highway 68. Allen is so near the Pontotoc-Hughes county line that many residents who call Allen their home actually live in the adjoining county.
