Museum docent Stan Shapiro introducing himself to Spiro students at the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art.
Spiro students visit Tulsa museum
T
wenty Spiro Gear Up juniors recently visited the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art in Tulsa.
The museum is dedicated to preserving
the memory of the Holocaust and to teaching the moral and ethical response to prejudice, hatred and indifference for the benefit
of all humanity. Students viewed pictures,
maps and artifacts from the time of the
Holocaust — Sept. 14, 1930, to Nov. 22,
1945. Two tour groups were led by volunteer docents Sandi Tilkin and Stan Shapiro.
Students heard stories about different
victims and heroes of the era. The Kaiser
Holocaust Exhibition encourages visitors
to remember the 6 million Jews murdered
in the Shaoh by the six candles resembling
the smokestacks of the crematorium on the
sculpture you see as you enter the exhibition. The origin of the work “Holocaust” is
Greek meaning “sacrifice totally consumed
by fire.” The docent wanted the students to
get the understanding that discrimination is
still present today, and it is the responsibility of each one of them to stand up for

Friends prepare books bags for newborns Local sites open for
Make-a-Wish event

“I’m passionate about
kids learning to read.
That’s why I’m part of the
library,” said Gerry Roberts of Friends of the
Library at Patrick Lynch
Public Library in Poteau.
Friends of the Library
have begun a new project
to help increase literacy
and love for reading
among the youth of LeFlore County — starting as
young as birth. Newborns
at Eastern Oklahoma
Medical Center in Poteau
will be given a book package from the PLPL Friends
starting today.
The package will
include a baby book, bib,
information about PLPL
and what programs for
children are offered at the
library, as well as a gift
certificate for a second
children’s book from
PLPL. There will be two

Roberts said the PLPL
Friends were inspired to
do the project after Friends
of the Dallas Public
Library in Texas began the
“Books for Dallas Babies”
program for newborns at
Parkland Hospital in Dallas in partnership with
their local library.
Additionally, newborns
at EOMC in Poteau will
be given baby spoons in a
joint venture between the
PLPL Friends and the
EOMC Auxiliary.
Roberts said the Friends
have purchased enough
books to last through the
remainder of the year.
Volunteers will have
donation buckets in the
Walmart parking lot and a
drive-through site will be at
the Donald W. Reynolds

said. Donations totals will

Bubble Soccer fundraiser for Band Boosters Saturday
at Panama School. The team opposing the sheriff’s

what is right. The students
also were educated on segregation, racism, the
world’s reaction to Hitler,
the ghettos, the camps, rescues, Jewish religion and
more.
“Seeing all of the pictures of the small children,
women and families being
murdered, I really didn’t
realize this many people
lost their life. This breaks
my heart,” said junior
Samantha Gillion.
Shapiro discussed the
Torah and how it is read
from right to left. The
Torah is written in Hebrew
and one passage is read
each sabbath. That is the
same reading all over the
world for that date. The
students were amazed that
the Torah was written by
hand.
Junior Josh Cole said,
“You would have to write
really neat and nice to
have this job so I wouldn’t
be able to work as a Torah
writer.”
Most items in the museum are donated and behind
covered glass cabinets.
Students also learned that
there are 613 commandments to go by, not just 10.
“There was so much
information to take in, I
need to go back and look
through it all again,” said
Jimmie Pool.
The students also had
the opportunity to experience a special exhibition
from Washington, D.C.,
while touring the museum
called “State of Deception:
The Power of Nazi Propaganda.” The exhibit is
designed to teach visitors
the meaning of propaganda, how it was used by the
Nazi army to gain power
and how it is still used
today. Propaganda is
biased information spread
to shape public opinion
and behavior. Students
were able to see the different uses of propaganda
techniques used to control
the society and help Hitler
gain control.
“Propaganda is a very
powerful tool that is still
used today,” said Gear Up
Education Coordinator
Dara Self, “and I think it is
very important that our
students have a better
understanding of what
their words can do to others.”
The field trip was sponsored by Eastern Oklahoma State College Gear Up.
Participating schools take
two field trips each academic year — one to tour
a college or university and
one that is cultural/educational in nature.
High schoolers can
enroll at college
Area high school students
can begin enrolling for concurrent classes at Carl Albert
State College.
The fall semester will
begin Aug. 10.
“Concurrent classes are a
great way for students to
complete college classes
while still in high school.
Concurrent classes count for
high school course requirements as well, therefore it is
advantageous for students,” according to CASC
Director of Enrollment Management/Retention Specialist Jennifer Humphreys.
Regarding the cost of
concurrent classes, Humphreys said, “Juniors and
seniors who are Oklahoma
residents attending an Oklahoma high school are eligible
for a tuition waiver that covers a maximum of six hours
per semester. The tuition
waivers are a real help to
students financially, but I do
want to clarify that students
are responsible for class fees,
books and any other expenses related to concurrent
classes.
“Again, concurrent classes are a fantastic opportunity
for high school students, and
we encourage all qualified
students to enroll,” Humphreys said.

Green Book was important guide in segregated America
POTEAU DAILY NEWS
What were the most
important books published
in the past century?
That would depend on
the evaluation criteria.
For African Americans
traveling in the 1930s
through 1960s, The Green
Book was a very treasured
and sometimes crucial publication. The complete title,
The Negro Motorist Green
Book was written by Victor
H. Green, an African American mail carrier from the
Harlem borough of New
York City. This directory of
hotels, restaurants, service
stations and other needed
services that welcomed
travelers in a time of segregation and often hostility
literally made travel possible, helped create growth in
black-owned businesses and

supported a middle-class
lifestyle.
Traveling was dangerous
for blacks in those days.
“Sundown Towns” did not
welcome them. Jim Crow
laws made food, water, and
even restrooms difficult to
locate. The Green Book created a safety net allowing
these folks to travel relatively safe and without the
worry of “being in the wrong
place at the wrong time.”
Green was 44 when he
created his first edition,
based on his own experiences in 1937, and it was
only 15 pages of simple listings, costing 25 cents. The
last edition for 1966-67 was
99 pages costing $1, with
listings for the entire contiguous United States with
some listings for neighbor-

ing countries, and included
churches, golf courses, night
clubs and state parks, a valuable resource for the burgeoning black middle-class
businesses and vacationers.
Up to 20,000 copies were
printed annually during the
later decades. Green died
before Congress passed the
Civil Rights Act on July 2,
1964. He was never
wealthy.

Choose life — it’s a
Expansion of brief experience
Editorial Round-up
Medicaid not a
budget cure-all
Editorial excerpt from The Oklahoman
April 4, 2016
The news that Oklahoma’s Medicaid program may cut
provider rates by 25 percent due to the state budget shortfall will undoubtedly lead some critics to insist this would
not be happening had Oklahoma expanded Medicaid
under the Affordable Care Act.
Yet while the state would have received additional
federal funds for Medicaid under Obamacare expansion,
that money would have been used for new enrollees, not
those currently in the program. The program would still
face cuts this year and provider-rate reductions would
likely still be on the table.
Supporters of expansion often ignore that adding people to the program also increases costs that state government struggles to cover in a time of budget challenge.
Making a struggling program bigger isn’t the same as
making it stronger, and expansion could actually amplify
state government’s financial challenges.
Medicaid as it currently exists in Oklahoma primarily
serves the very low income, mostly children and pregnant
women. Under expansion, thousands of able-bodied
adults with incomes above the poverty line would be
added to the program.
Oklahoma currently must provide around $4 in state
funding for every $6 in federal Medicaid spending on
current enrollees (the aforementioned women and children). Under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government pays 100 percent of the extra costs for the expansion
population through 2016, then 95 percent before leveling
off at 90 percent in 2020 and afterward.
But even with expansion, Oklahoma would still have
to provide the roughly 40 percent match for the existing
Medicaid population, so that budget challenge would
remain the same.
Those who say the health care system will be strengthened by expanding Medicaid basically imply that providers will make enough off the expansion population to
subsidize treatment of the core population of existing
Medicaid enrollees. That’s debatable.
One criticism of Medicaid is that it pays less to providers than the cost of treatment. Presently, Medicaid pays
physicians about 87 percent of what Medicare pays, and
Medicare pays less than most private insurance. If provider rates are cut another 25 percent, the rate will fall to
just 64.9 percent of Medicare rates. But under either scenario, Medicaid payments are so low that doctors treating
those patients can struggle to stay profitable. Adding
more people to an underpaying program will not significantly alter that equation.
Also, the state match required for Medicaid expansion
is not insubstantial. A Leavitt Partners report in 2013 predicted Oklahoma taxpayers would fork over $850 million
over 10 years for Medicaid expansion. That may have
been a lowball figure, based on the experience of other
states.
Before Medicaid was expanded in Ohio, officials predicted 366,000 people would be added to the program.
After expansion, the actual increase was more than
600,000. Officials predicted the cost of Ohio’s Medicaid
expansion would be $2.56 billion for the first 18 months
of Medicaid expansion. The actual cost was nearly $4 billion.
If a similar scenario occurred in Oklahoma, the state
share of Medicaid expansion costs could run closer to
$1.3 billion over a decade. Such concerns are one reason
why state officials have balked at embracing Medicaid
expansion. Imagine how dire this year’s $1.3 billion budget shortfall would be if lawmakers were also grappling
with Medicaid costs and enrollment that were skyrocketing far above current trends.
Whatever else may be claimed about Medicaid expansion, it’s no cure-all for state government’s fiscal challenges.

Life is an opportunity to
spend a brief period of time
in this world. During this
minimal space of time we
are fortunate to enjoy what
most others cannot do.
Most of the people who
have ever lived are dead.
Therefore we are in a very
rare state of existence. We
are in the land of the living.
We breathe, eat, work,
worry, cry, laugh and either
enjoy or hate life.
I read about young
adults who die almost every
day — young people overdosing on drugs, alcohol or
committing
suicide.
Millions more live in a
depressive state. Life has
its ups and downs and there
is really no such thing as a
perfect life. All of us are
faced with sickness, caregiving, worries, stress,
messes, disappointments,
sadness, victories and
more. It’s life.
We often look at other
lives and envy them. We
develop the impression that
others are free of problems
and sadness when often
those who seem to be the
happiest struggle the most. While being a caregiver for
12 years an acquaintance
commented to me, “You
seem to have the world by
the tail. No one would ever
dream you have a problem
in the world.” Smiling, trying to keep a good attitude
and being kind to others
throws a lot of people off.
Sadly, we aren’t used to
seeing this in most people.
We can’t live our lives
based on others. No one
thing will make you happy
or fill you with a vibrant
life. No one person makes
you alive. No one certain
job will make you alive.
Life is not ultimately found
in money, a relationship, a
child, a career, a house or
anything. All of these of
course add to our living.
However, ultimate living is
more powerful than any
one certain thing, event or
person. I understand losing
a child or spouse in death
cuts our hearts out. I’ve

buried a child and a wife.
It’s horrific. I’ve had disappointments in business,
frustrating jobs and fallen
flat on my face.
I know what it’s like to
draw unemployment. I
know what it feels like to
go to the county social services office and apply for
Medicaid
because
I
couldn’t afford to pay for
my wife’s nursing home
expenses. I know what it’s
like to lose “friends”
because I didn’t do exactly
as they thought I should
do. Oh well.
Lots of stuff can rob us
of life. Don’t let this political season sour your life.
Carefully consider who
you think will be best for
protecting our country by
bringing our jobs back,
updating our infrastructure,
strengthening our Social
Security and strengthening
our military. Fighting and
arguing about it all day is a
waste of energy. Make your
choice and vote.
My preacher was talking a lot about life at church
this past Sunday. He quoted a verse of scripture from
Proverbs 12:28: “In the
way of righteousness there
is life.” He talked about
choosing to live. There are
choices that lead to death
but there are choices that
lead to life. I hope today
that you choose to live and
love life. It’s a brief experience.
Glenn Mollette is an
American syndicated columnist and author. He is
the author of 11 books and
read in all 50 states.
America, where for art thou?
Is this great land we
call America vanishing
before our very eyes?
We need to be reminded
of the sobering words of
Nikita Khrushchev, who
said, “You Americans are
so gullible. No, you won’t
accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of
socialism until you finally
wake up and find you
already have communism.
We won’t even have to
fight you; we’ll so weaken
your economy until you’ll
fall like an overripe fruit
into our hands.”
In 2008, and again in
2012, I said America was
in trouble. We have a
president who seems to be
hell-bent on marginalizing
America. His socialistic
ideology has been an absolute failure for the last
seven years and his presidential legacy will be lost
in the quagmire of those
delusions.
In 2016, we have Hillary
Clinton and Bernie Sanders
vying for the Democrat
presidential nomination. Both are socialists and
Bernie is quite proud of
that maligning label.
On the Republican side
we have a senator from
Texas, a governor from
Ohio and a billionaire
businessman from New
York all vying to be the
next president of the
United States.
The governor doesn’t
have a chance of winning
the presidency, but he
refuses to get out of the
race. The senator and billionaire both have a realistic chance of winning the
Republican nomination,
but the politics of it all is
getting quite disturbing.
A recent article in the
National Enquirer claimed
Ted Cruz has five mistresses. The presidential
candidate said the piece
was no doubt orchestrated
by “Trump’s henchmen”
and that it was “garbage.” Ironically, the CEO of the
company that owns the
National Enquirer is a personal friend of Donald
Trump.
I don’t take much solace in what the National
Enquirer prints — it’s a
tabloid and just that. I
once in a while glance at
those papers, if you want
to call them that, and I’m
amused to see headlines
like “Man beaten to death
with foot-long hot dog.”
I recently heard both
Mitt Romney and Glenn
Beck say they could never
vote for Trump. They
claimed they would write
in a name on the ballot
before casting their vote
for the New York billionaire. Beck then went on to
add that someone told him

ing for Trump or Clinton
in the general election
would be a choice of
deciding upon the lesser of
two evils. Glenn then said
it’s not his desire to vote
for evil at all.
The more I study Trump,
the less I like his character and the personae he
protrudes.
The presidency of the
United States is an office
that commands dignity
and Trump doesn’t have
the temperament in that
regard.
He’s constantly making
the claim “We’ll make
America great again,” but
when pressed to define his
plans he marginalizes the
question and talks in generalities. Trump is weak on foreign policy and when he
was recently asked about
who he would consult with
on foreign policy he said:
“I’ll
consult
with
myself. I’m a pretty smart
guy.”
When he was pressed
about the matter, he said
he had a foreign policy
team in place. After giving
that response some thought
he corrected himself by
saying he’s working on
assembling a team. Shortly
thereafter he announced
who the members of his
foreign-policy team were.
Ironically, those individuals claimed they have
never spoken to Trump
about the matter.
Trump has also been
spewing rude comments
as well and it’s raising
alarms. Trump has attacked
Megyn Kelly, Carly
Fiorina, Columba Bush
and now Cruz’s wife. He
has called women “pigs,”
“dogs,” “slobs,” “disgusting animals,” “losers” and
“bimbos.”
In a recent NBC/Wall
Street Journal poll, 70
percent of women had a
negative
opinion
of
Trump.
Cruz recently told
reporters, “We don’t want
a president who traffics in
sleaze.”
I for one will not bow to
moral decay. I will not go
quiet or away. I will not
sacrifice the spirit of
decency that America
is. The founding fathers
realized our rights come
from a creator, not some
overbearing government
that seeks control over all
aspects of human life.

ment of the year, you'll undoubtedly know the premier ers have been Watson, Mickelson, Jason Day, Rory McIlgolf event of the calendar year is underway.
Unlike most weekends on the Professional Golf Association Tour, when the pros come to Augusta National
to play golf, the rest of the world stops to watch. The 90man field not only includes the top 50 ranked players on
the PGA Tour but the top players from the European Tour,
Japanese Tour, Latin Tour and various other top-ranked
golfers from across the world.
However, unlike the U.S. Open or British Open where
the allure of holding a trophy, besides a sizeable check,
brings in the golfers, The Masters is known more by the
infamous green jacket that last year’s winner will place
on the winner of this year's event — and go down in the
ranks of past winners like Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.
While this also is a notable weekend in the realm of
fantasy golf as daily fantasy site Draftkings will crown a
millionaire on Sunday, the larger focus will remain on the
leaderboard come Saturday evening. After three rounds
of golf, we should have a clear indication of who's con-
roy, Jordan Spieth, Adam Scott and Dustin Johnson — all
golfers the average golf fan is familiar with because these
guys are contending for wins week-in and week-out.
Each week, I run a stats model for the fantasy advice
site, “Draftshot,” and my model says that Scott should
come out of Augusta with the win. Based off of six
straight made cuts at Augusta as well as two wins in his
four PGA Tour events, I believe he should be the odds-on
favorite.
However, the sharps in Las Vegas sing a different tune
as they’ve given Day the best odds to win. Day has never
won The Masters in five trips. However, fresh off of wins
at the Dell Match Play and Arnold Palmer Invitational he
can’t be counted out. Of course, none of these top-tiered
golfers should be, either, including Spieth who won last
year’s event as he tied a course record for strokes under
par. Spieth’s domination of Augusta was no flash in the
pan as he had come in second the year before.
The forgotten man in this crowd may very well be
Mickelson, who's playing as well as he ever has at age 45.
By Phill
Bennetzen
He's a three-time winner at Augusta, and The Masters has
typically been a course on which he contends with 12 top10 finishes in his last 16 years. Considering Mickelson
has as many top-five finishes this year as he did top 10s in
2015, it would be no surprise to see him in the last pairing
come Sunday as he looks for his fourth green jacket.
Regardless the winner, I recommend you watch this
tournament as the world’s best compete on one of the
world’s most beautiful landscapes for a chance at history.

Don't give in to pressure or
stubborn people. Focus on what
you want and be relentless in
pursuing your goals. If you make
romance and love priorities,
your domestic life will be a
source of crucial support in a
busy and successful life.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Take a moment to consider all
your options. Impatience will
lead to mistakes and add to your
stress. Concentrate on what you
can do, not on what others are
doing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
-- If you use your charm, you
will convince others to pitch in
and help. By offering a little
incentive, you will not only
reach your goal, but you will
become a popular leader.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-- Keep a close watch over your
personal affairs. Don't rely on
anyone to take care of your
responsibilities. An update to
your appearance will improve
your personal life.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-- You'll capture someone's
interest with your down-to-earth
approach to something quite
unusual. A proposal or
partnership will develop, helping
you determine your next move.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
-- Your generosity will attract
hangers-on. Be careful not to
end up in debt trying to impress
someone. Look inward and
make personal changes that will
promote
confidence
and
security.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- Discussion will be your fastest
route to getting what you want.
The information you acquire
will enable you to embark on an
enterprising venture and a
promising future.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
-- Keep the peace. A change may
be necessary, but only when you
are ready to launch your wellthought-out plans. Romance will
ease your stress and help you
make hard choices.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- Bounce your ideas and plans
off a friend or simpatico
co-worker. The input you get
will make whatever task you
face more enjoyable and
entertaining.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
-- Explore avenues that show
promise. It's OK to make
changes that suit your needs.
You can't always do what is best
for others at your expense.
Romantic plans are encouraged.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- Don't let confusion set in. If
there is something you don't
understand, ask questions and
find out what you need. An
emotional plea will help you
win someone's approval.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Emotions will be difficult to
control if someone isn't
supportive or helpful. Try to be
patient, but put an alternative
plan in motion to counter a
setback. Make romance an
incentive.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- Avoid traveling or dealing
with institutions or people who
could make your life difficult.
An old friend will give you a
new lease on life. Take a walk
down memory lane.

Sense & Sensitivity
DEAR HARRIETTE: As
spring is here in full force, my
wife has decided that this is the
year that we get rid of clutter. In
the past, the whole family has
made a halfhearted promise to
throw out what we truly do not
need just to appease my wife.
This year, however, it seems as
though she is ready to turn everyone into complete minimalists.
There is an entire schedule for
what we are donating each week.
Clothing, toys, sports equipment
and extra bedding all make an
appearance, and it's safe to say
everyone is a little scared of
Mommy this year. Our children
are 10, 12 and 15, and they do not
always want to part with their
items.
My wife is not even budging at
their requests to hold on to anything sentimental. She says we
can just take a photograph of
items to remember them and
donate or toss the real thing.
We're all weary of this idea, but
my wife seems to be on a rampage. Do we just grin and bear
this spring cleaning? I don't really
want to get rid of anything,
either.
– Power Clean, Rochester, NY
DEAR POWER CLEAN: I wish
your wife would come to my
house! Believe it or not, her level
of organization for this cleaning
means that it will likely be more
effective than in years past. Even
though you don't want to let go of
any of your belongings, you may
be relieved and grateful if you do
it. Most of us collect things over
the years that we really don't
need. Make space for what is yet
to come by giving up something
from each category. It will be a
great lesson for your children as
well.
By
Harriette Cole
DEAR HARRIETTE: From
the ages of 2 to 10, my mother
entered me in beauty pageants. I
grew up in the South, where this
is common. I don't hold any
resentment toward my mother,
but I do grimace a little when I
see my old dresses, flippers and
costumes. I know I won a few
thousand dollars for my family in
the end and had some fun, so I
don't regret these years of my
life. Now that I am pregnant for
the first time, my mother has
been asking me about how I'm
going to find any pageants up
north for my daughter to compete
in. I said I wasn't particularly
worried about this, and my mother mentioned how the money
helps with expenses and how I
could reuse some of my old
belongings. I keep dodging the
questions she asks, but quite
frankly, I think putting my daughter into pageants would be tacky.
I don't want to have my toddler
daughter make money for me,
and I don't want judges ranking
her. I don't have any hard feelings
about my pageant years, but I
will not be entering my daughter
in them. How can I get my point
across firmly, without stepping
on any toes?
– Turning a New Page,
Wilmington, DE
DEAR TURNING A NEW
PAGE: You are going to have to
come right out and tell your
mother directly that you will not
be entering your daughter in
pageants. When she presses you,
tell her that you understand why
she had you do it, but you don't
want your daughter to follow in
your footsteps. You will help her
figure out her own interests and
support her in exploring them.

LeFlore County Department of Human Services employees were on hand as they were recognized with Energy
Star certification in a ceremony Wednesday. Standing from left are Sevilla Vance, director of LeFlore County

DHS lauded for energy savings
By Trayce Kerbow
PDN Correspondent
The LeFlore County Department
of Human Services was awarded Energy Star certification on
Wednesday morning as employees looked on.
To earn the Energy Star certification, a building must preform in the
top 25 percent of similar facilities
nationwide for energy efficiency. The Oklahoma First Energy Plan
program’s mission is to reduce the
energy consumed in facilities owned
and operated by the state of Oklahoma, while maintaining a comfortable,
productive building.
Claire Farr, Energy Star 2 program
manager, presented a certificate to
Sevilla Vance, director of LeFlore
County DHS, and told employees at
the ceremony that they had received a
score of 88, which indicates
their office is more energy-efficient
than 88 percent of similar facilities.
By the end of 2015, LeFlore County DHS had reduced energy costs 13
percent below their costs in fiscal
year 2012.
This was achieved by small changes made by employees in their daily
habits, lowering parking lot lights as
well as many other small things that
added up to big savings. Statewide DHS has been able to
reduce costs 29 percent since 2012,
which amounted slightly more than
$1 million.
The Oklahoma Department of
Career and Technology Education
recently awarded the Otha Grimes
Memorial Scholarship to four students from the KTC Talihina campus.
The scholarship is named for
Otha Grimes, who was actively
involved in agriculture, oil and gas
production, and civic programs
throughout the state. Grimes
served as a member of the board of
directors for the CareerTech Foundation.
The scholarship is reserved for
adult students who may not qualify
for other scholarship opportunities
or student assistance programs.
This scholarship is awarded on the
basis of commitment exhibited by
the recipient. Awards range from
$300 to $600 and are unrestricted
with respect to the occupational
area. Funds can be used to assist
winners with tuition, books and
other direct expenses incurred for
training.
Recipients of the scholarship
include Taylor Bowers of Whitesboro, Chasity Taylor of Wilburton,
Brandy Smith of Whitesboro and
Treasure Johns of Clayton.
