Halloween is the time of year we think of everything from costumes to candy. However, if Halloween were to be represented by an object, it would, no doubt, be the pumpkin, but if there is one candy that perfectly encapsulates the Halloween spirit in one small, sugary dose, it is the candy corn. With its distinctive and festive color triptych, involving jacko’-lantern orange, the candy corn fits perfectly into the classic Halloween aesthetic. The candy is also undeniable tasty and at a remarkably small size, it’s not hard to eat them by the handful! Still, there is so much more to these sweet treats than meets the eye. Did you know that this ubiquitous Halloween sweet has been around for over a century? The candy corn has had quite a legacy in American history and the technology needed to create the treat was considered innovative for its time. There are almost nine billion pieces of candy corn made annually, which is enough to circle the moon nearly 21 times if placed end-to-end! The candy corn has had quite a journey. George Renninger invented the candy corn in the 1880s. He worked at the Wunderlee Candy in Philadelphia. The Goelitz Confectionary Company took over candy corn production in Front page pictures: Monkey, Becket Burris- son of Adam and April Burris, Honey Bee - Madison Milne - daughter of Kala and Brad Milne, Wizard of Oz family: witch Nevaeh Smith, Dorothy - Jovee Johnson, Cowardly Lion - Rookee Johnson, Tin Man - Deakon Smith, Scarecrow - Wake Berst.

1900 and still produces the sweet today, but under the more recognizable name Jelly Belly Candy Company. The candy corn was initially given the less appealing moniker “chicken feed” because at the time, corn was closely associated with feeding chickens.
When it was created, candy corn had no association with Halloween or autumn. Initially candy corn was made with a mixture of sugar, corn syrup and marshmallow flavor. The candy was not produced in a factory. Instead employees would pour 45

Cattle Theft Suspect Apprehended Special Agents with the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry were searching Coalgate for wanted cattle thief Larry G. (Snag) Smith, Jr. on October 31. During the manhunt, agents conducted surveillance at a residence in Coalgate that is often a hangout for Smith. They were watching a vehicle parked in front of the home when the vehicle fled from the house at a high rate of speed. Agents pursued the vehicle
approximately six miles west of the city. When agents got the vehicle stopped, the occupant of the fleeing vehicle was identified as David Wallace from Atwood. Wallace is one of two suspects in the investigation regarding the theft of 99 head of cattle. The other suspect is Smith.

Country Comment from Page 2 three colors. Wagons then delivered the candy in wooden boxes, tubs and cartons to drug stores. The iconic multi-colored scheme of the candy corn was considered revolutionary and customers went crazy for the sweet. The popularity of the candy corn was so immense that competitors attempted to make candies in the shape of turnips, four-leaf clovers, chestnuts and other designs, but nothing could beat the unique design of candy corn. In the 1900s, the demand for the candy corn was so high that Goelitz had to refuse orders because his company didn’t have the means to keep up with the ever-increasing requests. The candy was perishable and couldn’t travel long distances until the 1940s when companies began using “familysized” cellophane bags to keep their products fresh. With the introduction of the cellophane bag, Goelitz could ship his candy further than he ever had before. By 1951, the Goelitz Company had 12 factories making candy corn all over the country. It was only after World War II that the candy corn was advertised as a Halloween candy. The tradition has remained unchanged. In the fall of 1951, a local advertisement described the candy corn as the “Buttery flavored mellow cream candy corn in its familiar three colors. Approximately 360 pieces to the pound. The candy all children love to nibble on all year long.” Even though the advertisement suggests kids would eat candy corn the whole year, some people believe that because the ad ran in the first week of October, that the candy has been associated with the month and Halloween ever since. Today over 35 million pounds of candy corn are produced each year. In recent years, the makers of candy corn have produced Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter themed sweets. The sweet is even honored with its own holiday, “National Candy Corn Day”, on October 30th, right in time for Halloween. As far as Halloween indulgences go, the candy corn isn’t unreasonably unhealthy for a candy. While the candy corn is mostly sugar, 22 pieces contain roughly 140 calories and no fat. Since this is Halloween week, I bought a large sack of candy corn for Halloween . . . not for the Trick-or-Treaters, but for myself. It has always been one of my favorite treats. —CC—
Cursing in public has become an epidemic. I was at a recent high school football game when two of the players used words in front of some girls that my dad would have knocked my teeth out for using. Turn on the TV or go to a movie and, more often than not, it will be filled with obscenities. There are still many of us that do not appreciate and will not watch them. I may be old fashioned, but I firmly believe that cursing is the sign of a limited vocabulary. It is just lazy to use a swear word when there are thousands of perfectly good adjectives, adverbs, nouns and verbs that are much more descriptive. Some years ago I read an analysis of how cursing has evolved in this country. It seems that in the early part of this century if an individual really wanted to get the attention of his neighbor, he used the Lord’s name in vain. That was called blasphemy. Of course, most of all people in the country at that time were practicing, devout Christians and cursing the Lord was very offensive. Eventually, blasphemy stopped shocking people. I don’t know if it was because more people drifted from the church or if over use decreased the shock impact. The next phase in cursing came between World War I and II. It is called the obscenity phase. Various four-letter words that describe sexual or bodily functions were used to shock the general populace. We are at the peak of that phase today. A teenager can sit through an R-rated movie and hear more four-letter obscenities than most of us “old timers” heard during our entire time in school. Almost all movies or shows on cable also are filled with four letter words. The air is so filled with obscenities that they have lost their shock value. When they are spoken in a restaurant or in a grocery store they offend because they are in such poor taste, not because of the shock value. Most Americans have been repeatedly exposed to all the four letter obscenities that are available. Now profanity has moved to another level to find shock value. The new category is racial epithets. A professor at a major university could scream blasphemy at his students all class period and the students would not care, nor the administration. The same could be said for obscenities. A college lecture
peppered with four letter words would not raise an eyebrow. But, if that same professor were to use one, just one, racial epithet in his lecture he would immediately be called on the carpet and his job would be in danger. The same with a politician or an entertainment figure. One reference, even veiled, to denigrate the racial background of an individual or group could end a career. Even speculation about how different racial groups perform in activities can be job ending. It is a sad commentary on our society. Taking God’s Name in vain or shouting obscenities is hardly noticed, but a crack about someone’s racial or ethnic background is cause for alarm. Though cursing may have “evolved” during the past 100 years, it is the common decency that has suffered. We have become so steeped in gutter language that it does not shock anymore. That is a very bad sign for our times. —CC— Last of all, I want to share on of my favorite stories. One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. “One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. “The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?” The old man simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Threads of Life by Cleo Emerson LeVally
I remember a lot of things about growing up on a farm in Allen. In my young days I probably would have been called a tomboy. I had a brother two years my senior and three younger brothers. I learned to shoot a rubber gun, climb trees, ride the mules and horses, run the gullies, slide down sand hills, climb and ride to the ground the young willow trees that grew along the creek bed, shoot a BB gun and rifle like an expert, fish in the old farm pond, catch crawdads and clean their tails to cook over a camp fire, tie sorghum buckets together and use them as floats in the pond in the summer and do many other things a small
girl of five or seven could be doing when she was running with a gang of boys. As you can imagine, since our place was only a half-mile from Broadway in town, we had many town kids (as my father called them) on the farm all summer. In summer, we played on the old cable swing across the creek, swam and fished for crawdads on the pond nearby. We would take a skillet and some potatoes and bacon fat, also meal, and we would cook the potatoes and fry the crawdads tails. We washed them in water from the pond in a sorghum bucket. Sometimes we would stay out there all day,
playing, swimming, riding the cable swing across the creek and running up and down the creek. Our friends from town always like to come out. We would all sit on the fence and watch the little calves and pigs, also helped feed them when my father would allow it. We would shell the corn on the sheller and then put out feed for the mules, horses, cows and chickens. We had a pair of old gray mules that we loved. Their names were Beck and Jude. We said in later years that we would like to put them out to pasture and let them live in peace and not have to work so hard. We had a pair of red
mules also, but they did not have the affection from us as the other pair did. The kids from town were the bane of my father’s existence, because they loved to sit on the fence to watch the farm animals he was afraid they would get hurt. Besides the horses, mules, and pigs, we had a goat. When there were baby animals on the farm, the town kids were always in the way, as my father put it. They wanted to pet them and, to him, that was a lot of foolishness. Allen was an oil town and there were not many farm
kids in school. The ones who came out to our farm did not realize that all the animals and things there were a necessity to us, it was different and a novelty to them. When I was in high school and the telephone would ring, Dad would yell out, ‘If that is a town kid, you can’t go!’ He did not realize that there was only one farm boy in my class at school and the only ones I could date were town kids. Life today is so different. All young people have an iPhone, iPad, or whatever the names are, and they are texting. They will never realize things as we did, on that old farm one half mile from town.
One Pharmacist’s View THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, NOVEMBER 7, 2013-PAGE 5
Since the beginning of time there have been people who think they know when the end of time is coming. Many had a following of believers who usually wound up on a mountaintop or someplace with their group and count down the minutes to the end together. Of course it never happens. Surprisingly these people usually take it well, explaining why it didn’t happen and so forth and go home with their heads held high and are never heard from again—but not liberals. I see that Mayor Bloomberg (another liberal end of timer) was in London the other day and in the course of a speech lamented how backward and uninformed many people are and made the following statement: “In parts of America there still remain people who don’t believe in evolution or even in global warming.” Before you think too much of that just remember that liberals in this country often state
Global Warming Gives Us the Cold Shoulder
that all people having some sort of difference of opinion from them are “backward and ignorant.” Not everyone accepts as “settled science” that global warming is, as some think, good reason for taking political actions such as are presently being taken. One problem with the global warming theories is that they have not, over time, panned out. The “warmers” cried wolf long ago and nothing happened. In fact, this summer the UN released a massive new climate report that throws cold water over the theory and its timetables. Quite simply, the report states that Global Warming has been on the pause button since 1998. No warming, particularly in the Northern Hemisphere (where it has actually cooled) has been recorded. The 2,200 page new Technical Report attributes this to a
combination of factors such as natural variability, reduced heating from the sun and the ocean acting like a “heat sink” to suck up extra warming in the atmosphere. Now the debate is just how long this cooling will last? Possibly a long time says Anastasios Tsonis of the University of Wisconsin. He points to the repeated periods of warming and cooling in the 20th century. Tsonis goes on to say that there are a lot of climate models out there but they don’t agree with each other and they don’t even agree with reality. In fact, the IPCC (Panel on Climate Change) admit that none of the models predicted the hiatus— or to put it another way, no one saw it coming. Professor Tsonis criticized the IPCC for ignoring so much of the new research that studies have turned up regarding climate
Light from God’s Word
Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ Last April, it was reported that “In the last two months – not only has the Army listed Christians and many American organizations as ‘Domestic Hate Groups,’ but has engaged in restricting Christian exercise and removal of Christian and Jewish crosses and menorahs from Army worship areas.” Often today, Christians are being called “extremists” and Christian organizations are being labeled as “hate groups.” Are Christians becoming a hated minority in America? Once upon a time this would have been unthinkable, but things are changing dramatically. It is unfortunate that some who claim to be Christians have misunderstood the will of God who so loved the world that He gave his “only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) In love, God sacrificed Jesus to die for those who were
his enemies and who were in rebellion against Him. Christians need to understand that we are a “love group” rather than a “hate group.” Now, that does not mean we are tolerant and accepting of anything – especially not of ideas and teaching contrary to God’s will. However, in love, gentleness and patience, we try to correct and teach those who are in opposition “if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.” (2 Tim 2:25-26) True Christian do not engage in using “hate language” toward others. Rather, in love, we seek to save those who are destroying themselves by rebelling against God. Our society – sometime even our government – demands that we be politically correct and accepting of views contrary to God’s will. However, to speak the truth in a kind, gentle manner to those living in error or sinful rebellion against God is not “hate speech.” It is the truth that gives genuine, true freedom. (John 8:32) To be tolerant and to refrain from speaking the truth, allowing a person to believe and practice error is not love. To love others, we will desire that “all men come to know the truth” and be saved eternally. (1

change as they still claim that human activity is responsible for 95% of global warming. Judith Curry, chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Science at Georgia Tech, says the IPCC is taking a big credibility hit over the cool-down and they’re stating that the cooling is now or shortly will be over. “The IPCC has torqued the science in an unfortunate direction.” She further complained about them using explicit policy agendas to achieve their own political goals. These twisted “facts” do not inspire confidence in the final product—which now
drives our politics and energy policies toward items such as the Keystone pipeline and the production of electricity. In a related story last Friday, President Obama issued Executive Orders to several government agencies to take immediate steps—steps that will cost billions more—to cope with the effects of the oncoming disasters associated with global warming. Guess he didn’t see the UN memo. Have a nice weekend and enjoy the cooler than normal fall weather. Be sure and go to church Sunday and take your coat.

the time on their clocks finished by now. If you arrived at church at about the right time Sunday then you guessed right on whether you were springing backward or falling forward. Or is it the other way around? Tom Spillman sang “I Saw a Man” as the special music for the morning worship service. Though I doubt that Tom considers himself a preacher, the lyrics “I give my heart, my soul, my life into my Savior’s care” tell us the way to keep our priorities in the right order. R ev. Karch’s sermon followed up on Tom’s message. Titled “Living in the Flesh or in the Spirit,” it was based on Romans 8:5-17; 8:28; and 8:31,30. T he moral standards that determine behavior appear to have deteriorated over the past several years. Sin is replacing God with worldly things, and it is also the way that leads to both spiritual and physical death. Those for whom the world is of primary importance will pursue worldly things in-
stead of spiritual things. On the other hand spirituality—giving our hearts, our souls, our lives into the care of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ--brings us both life and peace. If Christ be in us our spirit is alive, and our flesh is controlled by God’s Spirit. This is life, and it is life as its best. Bad things happen in everyone’s life, but if we can turn to God He will help us. If God is for us then nothing can stand against us. Everything works together then for our good. I f we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior we are children of God and co-heirs with Christ. We inherit a home for eternity in heaven. Our minds can’t even completely comprehend the enormous blessings that God has for us. I s living the spiritual life rather than the worldly life worth it? God shows in His Word that it is, and then He leaves the choice up to us.

Mustangs to battle Foxes in key B-2 showdown By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Mustangs will wrap up the 2013 regularseason campaign this week with a home game against the Fox Foxes. Allen will be looking to stage the upset over the 8-1 Foxes. However, the Mustangs don’t have to sweat the outcome as far as a must-win contest. AHS has already locked up a berth in the playoffs with no worse than a fourth-place finish in the District B-2 standings. In a perfect world, Allen would upset Fox Friday and Central Marlow would lose to Cyril. If that situation played out, the Mustangs would emerge as the No. 2 seed in B-2 and would get to host a first-round playoff game. It’s more likely, however, that Central downs Cyril and Allen will be sitting in third or fourth place heading into post-season play. “We have a lot to play for

coming into our last game of the regular season,” said Coach Kenny Deaton. “We need to go play with everything we have to win at Fox. If we can get that done and we get help from Cyril, we’ll be hosting a firstround game in the playoffs. That has not happened around here in a long, long time … maybe 15 years or so. It certainly gives us something extra to play for on Friday night.” Fox comes into this week with an 8-1 overall and 7-1 mark in the league. The Foxes sit in second place going into the final game. If Fox defeats Allen then the Foxes will clinch the No. 2 seed and the home game to open the playoffs. FHS has scored 467 points in nine games and allowed 160. Allen is 6-3 overall and 6-2 in B-2. The Mustangs have scored 303 points and allowed 232. Last week, Allen exploded for an impressive 62-14 win over the Paoli Pugs. The district victory was crucial as it secured AHS a spot in the upcoming Class B playoffs. Dalton James played his best game ever in the 48-point triumph. The 6-0, 170-pound sophomore rushed for 302 yards and 5 touchdowns on 22 carries. James scored on runs of 3, 17, 18, 50 and 64 yards. Coach Deaton said the showing was one of the best by a Mustang player. It was very similar to Brady Caldwell’s 300-yard night against the Sasakwa Vikings in 2011. “Dalton had a great game for us,” the coach said. “But I also want to give credit to our offensive linemen who work hard to open holes for him to run. It starts with our senior center Cody Lively (6-1, 260) and our junior guards Jason Holcomb (6-3, 270) and Patrick Leonard (5-11, 170). We also use our tight end Thirkiel Wedlow (Jr, 6-1, 212) and wide receiver Dakota Nickell (Jr, 5-11, 140) to block for our backs.” Last week, the Mustangs switched junior Aaron Manuel (6-3, 232) to fullback to be the lead blocker for the running backs. “Aaron helped us a lot last week,” said Coach Deaton. “We may have found really something back there at fullback. Aaron is a punishing lead blocker and I hope he has found a home in our backfield. If he can play this week like he did last week it will be huge for our offense. His blocking can make our running game even stronger. Against a team like
Fox, we want to plug and chug and keep the football away from them (Foxes). If we can control the ball with our running game, we have a chance to go win this game. Fox is fast and quick and they want to spread us out and throw the ball all over the field. We’d like to limit that by just keeping the football away from them.” Four other Mustangs produced touchdowns in the runaway contest, which was halted in the third quarter on the 45-point mercy rule. Colton Browning, Aaron Manuel and Dakota Nickell all scored on running plays while Tommy Peay returned a kickoff for a touchdown. Allen took a 12-0 lead in the first quarter. The Mustangs started off with Dalton James’ 64-yard TD run to make it 6-0. Colton Browning later finished a scoring drive with a 10-yard touchdown scamper to make it 12-0. James provided 14 more points for the Mustangs in the second period. The running back raced 17 yards for one TD and added the conversion run to make it 20-0. James also scored on a 3-yard TD run to push Allen to a 26-0 lead going into halftime. After intermission, the fans were treated to a wild 50-point scoring spree in the third quarter. Allen generated 36 of the points with five touchdowns during the span. Paoli managed a pair of scores during the 12-minute period. Pug receiver Josiah Gibson caught a 42-yard scoring toss from quarterback C.J. Cunningham. Paoli added a successful conversion pass from Cunningham to close the deficit to 26-8. Allen looked to Dalton James for a quick response. The standout delivered with a 50yard touchdown TD run. QB Justin Deaton followed with a conversion run to up the lead to 34-8. Paoli came back with a second and final scoring answer. Cunningham ran a keeper and found the end zone on a 34yard TD run to close the game to 34-14. Allen would then get a highlight-reel 53-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Tommy Peay. James contributed the conversion run to push AHS on top 42-14. Dalton James finished off another drive with an 18-yard touchdown run. Shawn Rolen stepped in and scored on the conversion run to make it 5014. Allen added a touchdown on

Notice is hereby given that a hearing will be held on the 2nd day of January, 2014, at 11:00 o’clock am at the Pontotoc County Courthouse, before the Judge of the District Court. 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.
