Accident Takes Local Life

Allen resident Ruby Hoskison, 86, died Saturday, September 15th, of injuries sustained in a Friday night one-vehicle accident. Mrs. Hoskison was a passenger in a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada driven by her nephew, Thomas Cosper, 81, of Coalgate. W hile attempting to take the southbound ramp onto US 69 near Eufaula in Pittsburg County, the vehicle ran off the roadway to the right, over-

turned two and a half times, coming to rest on its top. Cosper was pinned for approximately one hour 15-minutes before he was extricated by Crowder and Eufaula fi re departments using the Hurst rescue tool. He was transported to McAlester Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead from massive injuries. Mrs. Hoskison was transported by ambulance to McA-

lester Regional and then transferred to St. John’s Hospital in Tulsa where she was admitted in critical condition with massive injuries. She expired the following day. The accident was investigated by Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Garrett Gray. His report indicated seat belts were in use by both Cosper and Hoskison; it was raining at the time of the accident and the one-lane ramp was wet.

The Allen Community Center / Emergency Response Center fund raising is a stand still at this time. Presently the account has received a total of $61,380 which includes a SODA grant for $34,000 and $27,380 from individual donations.

Expenseses have totaled $64,277 which include $30,995 for the heating and air units and roof replacement at a cost of $31,250. Other items purchases were lumber and other building material. Currently the town is getting estimates for the electrical,

plumbing and fi nishing items such as suspended ceiling, drywall, kitchen items, fl ooring and insulation. The town of Allen wants to thank people who have donated money and time to this project and are anxious to fi nd other funding to fi nish the important facility.

Two volunteer clean-ups have been scheduled for Allen. The fi rst clean-up is scheduled for October 6th. This will be just a downtown and parade route to spruce Allen up for homecoming. This is an all volunteer event. More will be

announced later. T he second clean-up is a neighbor-helping-neighbor project. It will be held October 27th. This will benefi t our neighbors who need a little help with mowing, hauling off trash, limbs, couches, chairs, etc.

The city has volunteered to open the dump that day. Anyone with a pickup, trailer or truck who would like to volunteer their services would be greatly appreciated. Student organizations are also volunteering to help. Currently the Allen FFA has offered their muscle to help haul away refuse and unwanted items. The Allen 4-H are making plans to help as well.

The decision may or may not raise the price of 3. d gasoline, but it will affect the supermarket prices for meat and many other products. It could well raise the prices of fast-food burgers, chicken, soda and your Thanksgiving turkey. It could even affect the price of beer and bourbon. Ms. Jackson must decide how much renewable fuel — most of it corn-based ethanol — must be added to U.S. gasoline supplies in the next year. This year’s renewable fuel standard calls for oil companies to add 13.2 billion gallons of ethanol to fuel stocks. Next year’s standard is 13.8 billion gallons. You can get almost three gallons of ethanol out of a bushel of corn. So meeting this year’s standard will require about 4 billion bushels. In a normal crop year, more than four out of every 10 bushels are used for ethanol. Another four out of 10 go to feed livestock and poultry. This year is not normal, though climate experts say we might want to start getting used to it. With record drought having ravaged the corn crop, driving prices to record highs, the American agricultural industry finds itself divided. Ms. Jackson should waive or reduce next year’s mandate. That’s not a tough decision. Corn growers will not lack for markets for whatever part of their crop they can manage to salvage.

One is of a man and his dog on a horse. The dog is seated on the saddle in front of the man who is obviously pretty much out of it and has the reins of the horse in his paws. The text reads, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Friends Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Let Friends Drive Drunk.â&#x20AC;? Another one is of a couple eating in a restaurant, the wall of which has a sign that reads, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Todays Special FROG LEGSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Three frogs who have no legs are coming in the door in wheel chairs and another one is in the hall, standing on crutches. That one also had no legs. You can understand the look of amazement on the faces of the couple as they see this parade.

People poking around Allen note a lot of changes taking place. Another new business down on the highway provides food and refreshment for curious and hungry Allenites. It goes by the unlikely name of “Dive In” and the Skeltons are in fi rm control of the place. The landscaping and décor down there is outstanding and makes our town look proud. Try their Vanilla Cappuccino milk shake if you want a real treat. Another major business is currently in the early stages of construction. A new Dollar General Store will make its appearance at the corner of HW-1 and N. Commerce in a few weeks. The city has been busy, too. Some more old derelict homes have been fl attened and hauled off. I have lost count of how many so far but am promised that more will fall to the wrecker soon. A lot of work has already been done to make Allen a better place to look at and live in. The City Park and The Walking Trail look better than I can ever remember and with

public help and cooperation we can have the best looking little town in the area. Our city workers work hard keeping up with the normal work that keeps our streets open, our garbage hauled off and laws enforced. They help make Allen a nice place to live and I appreciate their hard work. Helping us get a “leg up” on the litter and trash problem in town the city has two cleanup dates on their calendar. The fi rst is scheduled for October 6th. This cleanup will zero in on the parade route for the annual homecoming parade. The streets will be swept and spruced up. They’ll probably repaint the crosswalks and parking lines and do what they can to make the downtown look more photogenic. Then on October 27 th there will be the neighbor-helping neighbor project. This citywide cleanup will give some special help to residents who need it with mowing, hauling off trash, limbs, couches and other “stuff” that seems to fi nd its way onto lawns. Volunteers with a pickup or trailer are needed to help out

that day. The Allen FFA has offered “muscle” to help us haul away our junk. The city hopes you will call and let them know if you need help or want to help with any of these things. They say the phone numbers you should call will be published later and a “dump” site will be provided. O ne more thing: I know that the people who just toss their litter out the car windows or whatever don’t read news articles so it really doesn’t do much good to gripe them out in the paper. In fact they may be unable to read! But be reminded anyway to place your trash in the trash cans around town. Don’t just throw it on the streets and sidewalks. Those of you owning kids and grandkids might put in a word about this as this costly and unsightly litter is just another form of vandalism and it is something that we can do something about. Enjoy this great fall weather and be sure and go to church this Sunday. Wayne Bullard, D.Ph

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ One small boy I know very well liked to go fi shing when he came home from school. Even though his dad had told him to feed and water the chickens before he went fi shing, he went fi shing, planning to return before dark to take care of the chickens. However, the fi shing was very good and the time slipped by until it was nearly dark. He rushed to feed and water the chickens, but at the same time his dad arrived

and found the chickens were without water and feed. Do you think, he reverenced his dad or do you think he honored his own desires and pleasure more? God asked the people of Malachi’s day, “Where is my reverence?” It would seem that God needs to ask that question of people in our world! Malachi indicated that the people of Israel argued with God, saying, “In what way have we despised Your name?” (Malachi 1:6) God answered them by saying, “You offer defiled food on My altar” and you say, “The table of the Lord is contemptible.” God also told them that they offered the blind, lame and sick as a sacrifi ce. He suggested that their Governor would not accept the inferior and worthless sacrifi ces they offered to God. (Malachi 1:7-8) Do you give reverence to God? If you do, how much

do your reverence Him? If we do not do the things God has commanded in the way He has commanded, how can we claim to reverence Him? Are we like Israel in trying to offer to God that which is inferior and worthless, saving the best for our pleasure and benefi t? Did you go to worship God last Sunday as God commands (Hebrews 10:24-25) or did you fail to honor Him by fulfi lling your desire and pleasure? Did you give as God has prospered you or did you make an inferior sacrifi ce, setting aside fi rst what you needed for your desire and pleasure? Showing reverence for God is not done by a special formula of words, but by submission in obedience and by doing His will.

Atwood Church of the Nazarene

I guess the cool weather helped to bring everyone to church. We had several visitors and welcomed them all. Jennea Haas had her children and grandchildren with her. Her daughter, Kimberly, and grandson were here from Colorado. Her son, Michael, and his family were here from Tulsa. We are so thankful for the rain God sent this week. In the worship service Sharon and Wayne Sanborn sang our special, “The Scarlett Robe.” Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from James 3:1-10 and en-

titled “Be Careful Little Mouth What You Say.” A perfect person is able to control their tongue. The perfect person always says the right thing at the right time. The perfect person never has to apologize or take things back. There are not many examples of perfection. In fact, in all of history I can only think of one such person: Jesus Christ! His words were always in accordance with his heart. The way He controlled his words was perhaps one of his greatest miracles. You and I will never reach the perfection of Jesus. We are however, called to be his

followers. The tongue reveals the heart. James has some pretty harsh things to say about the tongue. “It makes great boasts.” “ It is a fire, a world of evil.” We all know the saying “sticks and stones...” and we all know the saying is wrong! Jesus once said “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks....” The words that come out of our mouths

tell us what is in our hearts. To tame the tongue the heart must change. James seems to be saying that even religious people may need some help. We praise God and curse others with the same tongue and the same ease. This is an indication that something needs to change. James is reminding the people of God that only God can

change their hearts. As we yield control of our lives to the Holy Spirit our tongues will begin to tame. God can create within us a perfect heart. The tonguetestify! We want to invite everyone to our Fifth Sunday Singing September 30th at 6:00. Snacks will be served following the service.

Atwood Baptist Church News

The school year is well underway—only about 8 more months to go now—and so is the new church year. The staff and committee positions have been filled, although there is always room for more volunteers. Next Saturday, September 22nd, is Movie Night. Be there at 6:00 for chili, beans, cornbread, and a very good movie that you won’t have to be afraid to take your children to see. See You at the Pole day is on September 26th. I believe the one at Allen begins at 7:30 that morning. September 29th is when the next work day at our church is scheduled. We need people to help with finishing up some work at the parsonage, general clean up, and kitchen detail cleaning so your help will be much appreciated. Many hands and the cooler weather should make it easier for everyone. This Sunday the children opened the worship service by reciting their memory verse, Luke 11:28, and singing “Jesus Loves Me.” They are always so cute that we almost miss their message, but they did a fine job with both the verse and the song. Tom Spillman disregarded W. C. Fields’ advice about not sharing a stage with children or animals, but he held his own very well. He sang “Had it not Been for Jesus” and his message came through loud and clear. Rev. Karch’s message began in II Timothy 4:2-8, and addressed how Christians should live in today’s world. First, Paul says that pastors are to preach the Word of God. Preaching anything else is wrong. As they study the Bible, Christians become more clear about what they believe and why. This makes it harder to be led astray by those who preach anything other than what the Bible teaches. Pastors are to rebuke and exhort the members of their churches. Christians constantly need to correct their course so that it agrees with the scriptures. If they don’t go to church to let God recharge them and set them on the right course for the following week, they are falling behind. Verses 3 and 4 say that one day people will not listen to sound teaching but will turn away from it and listen only to what they want to hear. When they don’t read the Bible and listen to preachers who love them enough to tell them the truth, they leave themselves open to all kinds of weird philosophies and false teachings. If Christians, like Paul, give themselves to live with Jesus as 100% Lord of their lives they will look forward to His return. In II Timothy 3:2-5, we see that the Word of God does not change. Sin is always sin. If you will read this passage about how Paul expects the last days to be, you will see that it reads uncomfortably like today’s news. Radical Christianity embraces that the Bible is God’s Word and that we can become more like Jesus as we read it, pray over it, and live in obedience to it.

Thank you from The American Legion Post 72 Ada, Oklahoma (The Legion will be sponsoring a Wounded Warrior Run this Saturday, September 22nd. All the wounded warriors need some of the basic things: toiletries, large print Bibles, “forever” stamps, hoodies that zip in the front, TV’s, crossword puzzles, skid resistant socks, and much more! Item should be dropped off at the Legion Post on North Broadway by 5:00 pm Friday.

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Mustangs enter Week 4 of the 2012 football season still searching for the first victory. The next opportunity comes Friday evening. Coach Kenny Deatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mustangs will visit the Central Marlow Bronchos in District B-2 game at Marlow. Marlow Central is 3-0 with two blowout wins and third victory by a double-digit spread. The Bronchos won the opener 62-20 over Mountain View Gotebo. MCHS took down Oklahoma Christian Academy 40-30 on September 7. Then, last week, Central Marlow blanked Macomb 46-0. On the flip side, Allen lost to Wetumka 40-8 in Week 1 and then fell to Waurika 2414 in Week 2. Last week, the Mustangs suffered a 20-18 to Oklahoma Christian Academy to slip to 0-3. Despite the opposite records, Allen and Marlow Central are much closer in ability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could and probably should be 2-1 right now,â&#x20AC;? said Coach Deaton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We lost to a very strong Wetumka team and that was not a fluke. But the losses to Waurika and Oklahoma Christian Academy were opportunities that we let slip away from us. I feel we lost those games instead of our opponents winning them. We made mistakes that cost us both of those games. If we take care of the ball and avoid the penalties, we almost surely would have won our last two games. But the bottom line is that we did not make the play, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on us. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep blaming these things on youth and inexperience. We have to step up and make the plays when we have the chance. We are not out of the playoffs by a long shot. The thing we have to do is to start with this game and do what we need to do to get out of there with a victory. If we can accomplish that, we can build on it and start turning those Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s into Wâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;? Despite the losses, Coach Deaton could not be prouder of his players for their effort and determination. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could not ask for more a hard-working or dedicated bunch,â&#x20AC;? the coach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They come in here each day hungry to learn and improve. They shed some tears over those losses, so I know it is not about dedication or desire or determination. What we need to do is to cut down on our turnovers and penalties. In our last game, we played one of our best games in several years. We had a couple of busts on pass coverage, but we were

solid other than that.â&#x20AC;? The offensive review was not so uplifting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We shot ourselves in the foot several times,â&#x20AC;? Coach Deaton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On our opening drive we were down on their 11 and then fumbled away the ball. In the third quarter, we had a first-and-goal at their 1 yard line before a penalty cost us points. And we also had one chance with a fourth and goal from the 3 yard line. We were in the shotgun and the snap came back (to the quarterback) on the ground. We had to fall on it there and just cover it up. Those are some of the untimely mistakes that cost us great chances to score.â&#x20AC;? Allen dominated the stat line with 17 first downs and 345 yards of total offense. The Mustangs rushed for 240 yards and passed for 105 yards. OCA was limited to 11 first downs and 240 yards of total offense. The Eagles were balanced in rushing (117) and passing (123). Colton Browning turned in another excellent showing in the rushing attack. He had 24 carries for 144 yards. Conner Johnson added 13 carries for 85 yards and 2 touchdowns. The other rushing included Dakota Nickell with 3 carries for 9 yards and Justin Deaton with 2 carries for 4 yards. In the passing game, Conner Johnson completed 10 of 22 for 105 yards and one touchdown. Justin Deaton was 0-1-0 for 0 yards. Dakota Nickell led the receivers with 4 receptions for 68 yards and one touchdown. Justin Deaton contributed 2 receptions for 17 yards. Colton Browning finished with 3 receptions for 11 yards. Michael Stick rounded out the total with1 reception for 9 yards. Two Allen players shared top defensive showings. Colten Browning and Zach Conley both recorded 12 tackles. Justin Deaton was also active in tackles with 6 stops, including 1 for -2 yards and a quarterback sack for -4. Michael Stick also drew praise from Coach Deaton for his 5 tackles. Allen opened the scoring in the second quarter with a nifty aerial play. Dakota Nickell was on the receiving end of a 46-yard touchdown pass from Connor Johnson. AHS then failed on the 2-point conversion run, leaving the Mustang lead at 6-0. OCA rallied to event the score with a 50-yard touchdown pass. The Eagles also failed on their conversion run.

Allen Goes into B-2 showdown with Central Marlow Bronchos

Allen went back on top on Connor Johnson’s 27-yard touchdown run on a quarterback keeper play. The Mustangs came within inches of getting the 2-point conversion on a running play. “We came so close to scoring on that play,” Coach Deaton said. “But the offi cial ruled that we did not break the plane of the end zone.” Allen was still riding the 12-6 edge until the fi nal play of the second quarter. That’s when OCA scored on a 3-yard TD run. The Eagles failed again on the 2-point run, sending the two teams to intermission tied at 12-12. In the third quarter, Oklahoma Christian Academy waited until the fi nal 13 seconds to break the tie score. The Eagles scored on a 15-yard TD run to go ahead 18-12. OCA then blasted into the end zone on the conversion run to open a 20-12 advantage. Allen kept fighting until finally getting back on the scoreboard with 2:54 remaining in the fourth quarter. Conner Johnson dusted off the scoring drive with a 5-yard TD run to pull AHS to within 20-18. Allen then used the “bulldozer” offensive package on the 2-point conversion try. However, OCA covered the tight end and forced the pass to him fall incomplete. That left Allen down 20-18 with less than 3 minutes to play. “We went for the on-side kick, but did not get it,” Coach Deaton said. “OCA ran three plays and then punted to us. Our defense did a great job of getting back the ball for us. We took over at our 25 yard line with 1:13 to go.” Allen marched down to the OCA 35 as the seconds ticked off the clock. There was time for only one play when the Mustangs came to the line of scrimmage. “We send our receivers down into the end zone and threw up a hail-Mary pass,” the Allen

head coach said. “The pass hit our receiver in the hands, but he was not able to come down with it. It bounced around and their kid ended up with an interception on the last play of the game. We came so close but lost 20-18.” ---OCA 20, Allen 18 Allen - 0 – 12 – 0 – 6 – (18) OCA - 0 – 12 – 8 – 0 – (20) ---Scoring summary Allen - Dakota Nickell, 46 pass from Connor Johnson (run failed) 6-0 OCA - #21, 50 pass from #12 (run failed) 6-6 Allen - Connor Johnson, 27 run (run failed) 12-6 OCA - #21, 3 run (run failed) 12-12 OCA - #21, 15 run (#21 run) 20-12 Allen - Conner Johnson, 5 run (pass failed) 20-18 ---TEAM STATSAllen OCA First Downs 17 11 C-A-I 10-22-1 5-14-0 Passing Yards 105 117 Yards Rushing 42-240 31-123 Total Offense 345 240 Punts/Avg 3/22 5/36 Fumble-Lost: 2-2 1-0 Penalties-Yards 5-50 6-40 ---Individual Rushing, carries-yards Colton Browning, 24 carries for 144 yards Conner Johnson, 13 carries for 85 yards, 2 TDs Dakota Nickell, 3 carries for 9 yards Justin Deaton, 2 carries for 4 yards ---Passing Conner Johnson, 10-22-1 for 105 yards, TD Justin Deaton, 0-1-0 for 0 yards ---Receiving Dakota Nickell, 4 receptions for 68 yards, TD Justin Deaton, 2 receptions for 17 yards Colton Browning, 3 recep-
