“In God We Trust” Now
Displayed In Courthouse Lobby
Our nation’s motto, “In God We Trust,” now graces the lobby
of the Coal County Courthouse. In fact, the motto is displayed
above both the north hallway entry and the south hallway entry.
The Coal County Board of County Commissioners approved
a resolution on November 7, 2011, to display the motto in the
courthouse. District 2 Commissioner Johnny D. Ward introduced
the resolution, stating that several counties and municipalities
across the state are already displaying the motto in courthouses
and other public places.
“This nation was founded upon godly principles,” Ward said
last week after the motto lettering was put in place. “‘In God We
Trust’ has been our country’s motto since 1956. But it really goes
back to 1776 when we became a nation. Our forefathers that
wrote the United States Constitution founded this nation on the
strength and guidance of this motto.
“To me, it’s a good reminder that we need to humble ourselves
and be thankful that we live in a nation that for the most part believes in family values, morals and freedom. Personally, I think
it may bring some dignity, honor and respect into this public institution, our courthouse.”
Ward stated that the cost of the motto was paid by a Coal
County citizens group made up of local churches and private
citizens. The lettering was by Lee Jackson, Artworks Sign Shop,
Coalgate.
“I would like to personally thank the churches and individuals
that contributed to this and to Lee Jackson for his help,” Ward
said. “They are the ones that made it all come together.”

Our nation’s motto, “In God We Trust,” is now displayed in the Coal County
McCollum Wins
School Board Election
Larry McCollum won the February 14 Coalgate Board of
Education election. McCollum ran against incumbent Larry D.
Thompson for Office No. 2, taking 52% of the votes.
The official results, which were not available by press time last
week, show McCollum with 254 votes and Thompson with 232
votes.
McCollum took the Centrahoma Precinct (14-12), VFW (7066), Clarita (8-3), Olney (15-9), and Lehigh (40-26).
Thompson came out ahead at Cottonwood (25-24) and Valley
Insurance (38-33). He picked up three votes at Atoka Precinct
10.
With the new voting machines now in use, absentee ballots are
included in the precinct numbers, Coal County Election Board
Secretary Vicky Salmon said.

Mixon Pleads Guilty To Embezzlement
A former Coal County
employee pled guilty last
week to 18 counts of felony
embezzlement before Judge
Gary L. Brock, Special Judge of
the District Court of McCurtain
County.
Tanya Dawn Mixon, 42,
was charged in October 2010
with embezzling property
belonging to Coal County. A
probe into Mixon’s suspected
embezzlement was launched
by the Coal County Sheriff’s
Office in early August 2009.
The sheriff’s office submitted
charges to District Attorney
Emily Redman in late August
2009. Redman recused from the
case, and in September 2009,
then-Attorney General Drew
Edmondson appointed District
22 District Attorney Chris Ross
to the case.
Ross then requested the
Oklahoma State Auditor and
Inspector’s office conduct a
special audit of Commissioner
District 1 where Mixon
was employed as secretary
and receiving officer under
Commissioner Alvin Pebworth.

2011 is history and it is time to look back at some of the things
“they” now believe are good for us and also some of the things
we were told to avoid.
First, the things that are now good for us . . .
1. Chocolate can protect your heart and your brain. British
researchers analyzed studies involving more than 100,000 people
and discovered that those who reported eating the most chocolate —
whether in cookies, candy bars, or milk shakes — were 37 percent
less likely to develop cardiovascular diseases and 29 percent
less likely to have a stroke than those who ate the least. Cocoa’s
antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties may provide some
heart-health benefits, and the pleasure of eating chocolate could
also reduce stress. Study author Oscar Franco says it’s still best
to enjoy chocolate treats “in a moderate manner,” since they often
come loaded with sugar, fat, and calories.
2. Behaving yourself as a child brings big rewards in adulthood.
Researchers tracked more than 1,000 people from toddlerhood into
their early 30s and found that the more self-control they showed as
kids, the healthier, wealthier, and happier they were as grown-ups.
By contrast, children who struggled to complete tasks and handle
frustration without lashing out at their peers were more likely to be
overweight, drug dependent, and ridden with debt as adults. The
study’s authors say that self-control can be taught and nurtured with
practice, and that no matter what a child’s circumstances, “good
parenting can improve self-control and improve life success.”
3. Feeling envious helps you focus. Psychologists found that
when they asked volunteers to recall a time when they’d coveted
something belonging to a friend, they proved to be much better
than others at remembering details of a text. And volunteers paid
much closer attention to stories about people they envied than to
ones about people they didn’t. “We can’t get our minds off people
who have advantages we want for ourselves,” says Texas Christian
University psychologist Sarah E. Hill. Envying our successful
peers heightens our powers of memory and observation, and may
also help us learn how to win or steal some of that success for
ourselves.
4. Drinking coffee wards off depression. And the more you sip,
the better it works. A Harvard University study found that women
who regularly drank four or more cups of coffee per day were
20 percent less likely to become depressed than those who drank
one cup or less. Researchers already knew that a jolt of caffeine
activates neuro­transmitters that boost feelings of well-being right
after you take a drink, but study author Alberto Ascherio says it
also protects mental health over the long term.
5. Meditation fights depression, too. Practiced as part of
mindfulness therapy — a treatment with roots in Buddhism and
yoga — it can help people with mood disorders feel better without
drugs. “I was skeptical at first,” says psychologist Stefan Hofmann.
“I wondered, ‘Why on earth should this work?’” But in reviewing
previous studies, he and his colleagues found strong evidence
that meditation relieved anxiety, quelled negative emotions, and
was often as effective as antidepressants at preventing relapses
of depression. Training patients to observe their own immediate
thoughts, experts say, can loosen the grip those feelings have on
their minds.
6. Listening to music is as thrilling as sex — at least to our brains.
McGill University neuroscientists scanned the brains of volunteers
enjoying a favorite piece of instrumental music and found that as
the climax approached, regions related to planning and anticipation
released dopamine — the same neurochemical that makes us feel
good when we eat, take psychoactive drugs, or engage in carnal
relations. When the climax of the song actually arrived, so did
another round of dopamine. The study, says neurologist Gottfried
Schlaug, “really nails” the link between the neurochemical and
listening pleasure.
7. White-fleshed produce defends against strokes. A Dutch study
found that eating fruits and vegetables like cucumbers, cauliflower,
and bananas appears to reduce the risk of stroke by 50 percent —
provided you get at least 6 ounces, or one large apple’s worth,
per day. The “results were surprising,” says study author Linda
Oude Griep, who found that only foods with white flesh had any
effect on stroke risk, even though her fellow nutritionists tend
to recommend foods with rich coloring, such as sweet potatoes,
beets, and kale.
Now the things we are told to avoid . . .
1. Multivitamins do more harm than good. A 20-year study found
that women who took multivitamins were 2.4 percent more likely
to die of any cause in that period than those who didn’t. Folic acid,
magnesium, and zinc seemed to shorten subjects’ lives, and the
more iron women took, the more lethal its effects. Study author
Jaakko Mursu says nature built us to get nutrients from whole
foods, so the solution is simple: Eat “as many vegetables and as
much fruit as you can” and you’ll get all the vitamins you need.
2. Liposuction won’t make you skinnier, and it’s hazardous to
your health. Researchers used full-body scans to track the fat
distribution in women who had the procedure on their lower
abdomens and thighs. Those regions stayed slimmer afterward, but
the same amount of fat quickly appeared in their upper abdomens,
shoulders, and triceps. “The brain senses a loss of fat and restores
it,” says study author Robert Eckel. Because liposuction destroys
the structures that house fat cells beneath the skin, the fat often
reappears deeper in the body, where it can cause heart disease.
3. Household appliances may cause asthma. Pregnant women
with the highest exposure to low-frequency electromagnetic fields,
or EMFs — which are generated by microwave ovens, vacuum
cleaners, hair dryers, and other common electrical devices — were
three times as likely to give birth to a child who later developed
asthma as those with the lowest exposure, a Kaiser Permanente
study found. “The problem with EMF is that you can’t see, smell it, you can’t touch it,” says study
author De-Kun Li. But you should strive to “avoid those sources that we know about,” especially if
you’re expecting.
4. Staring at a screen before bed ruins your sleep. A National Sleep Foundation study found that
95 percent of Americans gaze at some kind of light-emitting electronic device — be it a smartphone,
tablet, computer, or TV — less than an hour before bed, which keeps the brain from releasing the
sleep-inducing hormone melatonin. Young people, the heaviest gadget users, are the drowsiest, and
their habit “may have serious consequences” for their health, says study author Lauren Hale. Sleep
deprivation causes 100,000 car wrecks and 1,550 traffic deaths per year.
5. Cheering for a losing team could cost you your life. When the Los Angeles Rams lost the Super
Bowl in 1980, a new analysis shows, cardiac deaths in L.A. County spiked 15 percent for men and
27 percent for women over the following two weeks. The Rams’ victory in the big game four years
later had no impact on local health. Many fans see their team as “a family member,” says study
author Robert Kloner, and become emotionally stressed when it’s in trouble. A high-stakes game can
increase a passionate fan’s pulse rate, raise blood pressure, and potentially “trigger a cardiac event.”
6. Commuting can wreck your marriage. A Swedish study found that couples are 40 percent more
likely to split up if one partner has a daily commute longer than 45 minutes each way. Millions of
Americans endure the known perils of rush hour — like back pain, stress, and obesity — to enjoy life
in the suburbs. But that choice “can also be a strain on your relationship,” says study author Erika
Sandow. A common source of discord is male commuters leaving their wives with a disproportionate
share of housekeeping duties.
7. City living, though, can drive you crazy. German researchers scanned the brains of people who
live in an urban setting and found that they had more trouble processing everyday stressors than rural
folk did. The bigger the urban area a person lived in, the harder his or her amygdala — the region that
handles anxiety — had to work to deal with criticism from the researchers. The stress of urban life
“might cause these abnormalities,” says psychiatrist Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg. “If everyone were
born in the country, there would be 30 percent fewer people with schizophrenia.”

What will be on the two lists
next year? Only time will tell.
Who knows, the two lists may
be reversed!
—CC—
Speaking of things that are
bad for you . . . Girl Scout
cookies is on my “bad” list. I
recently read where the Girl
Scout cookies are now on
sale. I will not be one of their
customers and it is not for
health reasons.
Cathy Cleaver Ruse writes
. . . “When our sweet little
neighbor in her brown camp
uniform came knocking on our
door this year, we had to say no.
I told her mother that I didn’t
want to hurt Katie’s feelings,
but I couldn’t support the Girl
Scout cookie sale anymore
because I’d learned too much
about the organizers’ agenda,
primarily their support for
abortion and partnership with
Planned Parenthood.
I worried that my “political”
stand would cause uneasiness
between us, but her response
put me at ease: “Well,” she
said, “they do use unpaid child
labor to make their sales, and
the troop only gets 10 percent
of the revenues anyway.”
True. According to the Girl
Scouts’ website, the lion’s
share of the money goes not
to the troop but to bureaucrats
up the chain of command in
multicounty councils. The
national office gets a piece
of the pie, too, in the form of
royalties based on gross annual
sales volume - about 200
million boxes per year.
It’s a sacrifice, because I love
the cookies and the cuties
who sell them, but enough is
enough.
I remember the Girl Scouts
being flaky way back in the
early 1970s. When I was a
Brownie, I was told to recite
some chant and step over a
mirror. If I had known the word,
I would have called it “pagan.”
Even an unchurched girl of 7
could smell a rat.
Last year, the Girl Scouts
decided to admit boys who
dress as girls. When asked to
admit a cross-dressing 7-yearold boy, a Colorado troop leader
demurred, explaining to his
mother, with tact and irrefutable
logic, that her son couldn’t be a
Girl Scout because he has “boy
parts.”
The troop leader was chastised
by the mom as being insensitive
and promptly was overruled
by the Girl Scout top brass,
who, in a statement said, “If a
child identifies as a girl and the
child’s family presents her as
a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado
welcomes her as a Girl Scout.”
Perpetuating this cruel charade
on the little boy and forcing
little girls to participate in it
is “inclusiveness” to the Girl
Scouts. To others, it’s child
abuse.
But it shouldn’t be surprising:
The Girl Scouts have a crossdresser in the front office.
Ten years ago, Girl Scouts
media relations officer Joshua
Ackley was frontman for the
“homopunk” band the Dead
Betties. In publicity shots, he’s
dressed in women’s clothing,
and in music videos, he appears
to be naked and feigning
masturbation. The video for
“Hellevator” portrays a woman
being strangled in an elevator
shaft while Mr. Ackley flashes a
menacing grin.
Today he issues press releases,
posts news and views on the Girl
Scouts’ blog, and tries to mollify
moms who are concerned about
Girl Scout ties with Planned
Parenthood. In fact, it was Mr.
Ackley who facilitated the Girl
Scouts’ “no adults allowed”
workshop at the United Nations
- the workshop in which
the Planned Parenthood sex
brochure “Healthy, Happy, and
Hot” was offered, although part
of Mr. Ackley’s job is to deny
it.
It wouldn’t be a surprise if
someone like Mr. Ackley was
behind the Girl Scouts’ recent
scandal: a guidebook that tells
girls to check with the leftist,
George Soros-funded Media
Matters before believing what
they read in the news.
As boys send in their orders for
Brownie beanies and tights, the
Girl Scouts have declared 2012
to be “The Year of the Girl,”
announcing that they will be
“working to break down societal
barriers that prevent girls from
leading in their own lives.” What
barriers? What does “leading in
their own lives” even mean?
Forgive me for thinking it has
something to do with sex or
abortion.
Several years ago. a quarter of the
Girl Scout councils nationwide
admitted to partnering with
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s
abortion giant. When questioned
about the affiliation on NBC’s
“Today Show,” Girl Scout
CEO Kathy Cloninger had no
compunction in confirming it.
The Girl Scouts have been
“pro-choice” for years, but now
they’ve been caught supporting
promiscuous sex for girls. The
Planned Parenthood sex guide
offered at that “girls only” U.N.
meeting offered this advice on
Page 11: “Some people have sex
when they have been drinking
alcohol or using drugs. This is
Clarita-area residents can ‘share
the love’ this February by donating
blood with Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI). All donors at the Clarita
community blood drive held in the
Clarita Community Center, Wednesday, February 29, from 2 p.m. to 7
p.m. will receive free health screenings and Donor Rewards Points.
Additionally, if blood donors
choose to forgo the donor appreciation item, funds designated for
this item will be directed to our
partnering organization, the American Heart Association. Oklahoma
Blood Institute and the American
Heart Association (AHA) share
a common goal, to keep people
healthy. The American Heart Association wants everyone to know
their numbers and act on them.
That’s the first step in changing
cardiovascular health statistics. Because blood donors receive a mini
health check, including blood pres-
sure and cholesterol results, every
time they come to donate, those
numbers are readily available to
each donor.
Although all blood types are
needed to maintain OBI’s typical
3-day supply, those with O-negative
type blood are especially encouraged to donate. Blood donations can be made
every 56 days. Oklahoma Blood Institute is the ninth largest, non-profit
blood center in America, providing
every drop of blood needed by patients in more than 135 medical facilities across Oklahoma.

an appointment, contact Oklahoma
Blood Institute at 877-340-8777 or

Earlier this month, a young
Girl Scout employee, Renise
Rodriguez, made the mistake
of stopping by the office to do
extra work on her own time
in a T-shirt bearing the words:
“Pray to End Abortion.” A
supervisor ordered her to turn
the shirt inside out or leave the
office. She left, for good.
So should we all.

And, speaking of Girl
Scouts, I want to end with my
favorite story of the week . . .
When Maria, the daughter of
William Howard Taft III, was a
shy schoolgirl, she was asked
by her teacher for a brief family
history. This is what Maria
wrote:
My great-grandfather was
President of the United States.
My grandfather was Senator
from Ohio.
My father is Ambassador to
Ireland.
I am a Brownie.

Lady Wildcats To Face
Stigler In Regional Opener
—Coalgate girls face must-win situation following district loss to Wilburton
By HERMAN BROWN
Coalgate correspondent
The Coalgate High School
Lady Wildcat basketball season
continues into the Class 3A
regional tournament this week.
However, Coach Jim Jenson
has a warning for his CHS girls
as they prepare for a 1:30 p.m.
game Thursday at Wilburton
High School.
“Our backs are to the wall,” he
said. “It is now do or die. If we
lose another one, we are done!”
Coalgate is coming off a painful
40-16 loss to the Wilburton Lady
Diggers. The 24-point setback
came last Saturday in the district
championship game at Coalgate.
Prior to the playoff loss, the
Lady Wildcats saw their regularseason campaign end Tuesday.
The CHS girls were beaten 4537 by the hosting Savanna Lady
Bulldogs.
Savanna jumped out to a 12-4
lead in the first quarter. Coach
Jenson’s girls then rallied to
within 20-19 at the half.
In the second half, Savanna
outscored the visitors 11-7 for a
31-26 edge. The Lady Bulldogs
also outscored Coalgate 14-11
in the fourth quarter. The result
was the eight-point victory at 4537.
Landon Garcia scored 13
points to lead CHS in scoring.
Cherokee Acker added 9 points
to just miss double digits. The
other scoring included Tandra
Elkins with 5 points, Brooklyn
Hughes with 4, and Jade Ward
and Luci Palmer with 3 each.

COALGATE VS WILBURTON —Lady Cat Brooklyn Hughes is
ready to block or rebound as Jade Ward puts in two points for
Coalgate.
“Once again, we just didn’t
hit our shots,” Coach Jenson
said. “We got off to a bad start
but rallied to lead briefly in the
second quarter.”
Luci Palmer’s lone trey pushed
the Lady Wildcats ahead 19-18.
“But Savanna came back to
score at the end of the half to go
back ahead 20-19,” the Coalgate
coach said.
“Then in the second half we
didn’t do a very good job of
hitting our shots.”
The Lady Wildcats were
outscored 25-18 in the second
half. They ended up losing to
Savanna, 45-37.
The poor shooting by the
Lady Wildcats was reflected in
their 8-of-16 showing at the free
throw line. Two of those misses
were front-end opportunities in
the first half. Savanna scored on
14 of 22 free throws in a game
the Lady Bulldogs won by only
eight points.
Coach Jenson had been hoping
for a strong showing at Savanna.
“We were looking for a lift
going into the district finals,” he
said. “But we lost to Savanna so
we didn’t get a lift on that one.”
On Saturday, Coalgate hosted
the Wilburton Lady Diggers in
the district finals at Coalgate
High School. The cold shooting
continued for the Lady Wildcats
in a game they lost 40-16.

Despite the setback, Coach
Jenson was very pleased with his
squad’s defensive performance.
“It wasn’t about playing bad
defense,” he said. “We held their
best scorer to 4 points. I am so

pleased with our defense. But
what we’ve got to do is play
better on offense. That’s been
our problem the entire season.”
Looking ahead, the Stigler
Lady Panthers will provide quite
a challenge for Coalgate.
“They have a winning record
and are a good team,” Coach
Jenson said. “I watched them and
believe they will be a handful.
We have to keep playing good
defense, keep the score down in
the 40’s or 30’s, and start hitting
our shots. If we can do that, we’ll
have a chance to win and move
on to Friday’s game.”

Wildcats Capture District Championship Crown
—Coalgate boys pound Savanna 50-25 and then open playoffs with 42-20 win
By HERMAN BROWN
Coalgate correspondent
The Coalgate Wildcats are
celebrating another district
championship as they prepare
for the next round of the
playoffs.
Coach Kerwin Manion will
lead the CHS boys into the
winners’ bracket Thursday
evening in the Class 3A
regional tournament. Coalgate
will square off in an 8 p.m.
game against high-powered
Tahlequah Sequoyah.
The
regional opener is being hosted
by Wilburton High School.
Coach
Manion
knows
his squad will face a major
challenge on Thursday.
“They (the TSHS players) are
very, very talented,” he warns.
“They are real deep with a good
bench and are very athletic.
We have to play good defense
to have a chance to win. It’ll
start with our defense and will
also include us taking care of
the basketball. We need to slow
things down, keep the scoring
lower, and see if we can take the
game from them. We’ll want to
slow things down and they’ll
want to push up that tempo. It is
a clash of two different styles.”
The winner of Coalgate vs
Tahlequah Sequoyah will move
to the regional championship
game Saturday night at
Wilburton. The opponent will
be either Hugo or Kansas.
Meanwhile, the loser of
Coalgate vs TSHS will drop
into the losers bracket and play
an elimination round game on
Friday against the winner of
Heavener vs Atoka.

COALGATE VS WILBURTON — Wildcat senior Colby Lackey
shoots another three points against the Wilburton Diggers in
Saturday’s district championship game. Lackey was one point
short of the entire Wilburton team’s offensive scoring with a
19-point performance. Coalgate defeated Wilburton 42-20.
Prior to the start of the
playoffs, Coalgate wrapped
up the regular season with a
50-25 beatdown of the hosting
Savanna Bulldogs. The onesided CHS victory came on
Tuesday evening at Savanna
High School.
Coalgate outscored SHS in all
four quarters. The Wildcats led
14-9 after a quarter and 29-14
at the half. CHS then outscored
the host team 10-9 in the third
quarter and 11-2 in the fourth.
C.J. McClain led Coalgate in
scoring with 13 points. Lance
Walker was also in double digits
with 11 points. Colby Lackey
and Brandon Jim followed with
8 points while Dustin Ybarra
added 6. Brandon Courson
provided 3 points and Nathan
Price added 1.
Last Saturday, Coalgate
moved on into post-season
play. The Wildcats hosted the
Wilburton Diggers in the district
championship game.
The contest proved to be no
contest. Coalgate raced away to
leads of 15-3 after one quarter
and 19-11 at the half. CHS then
outscored Wilburton 9-2 in the
third quarter to lead 28-13. The
Wildcats doubled up the Diggers
14-7 in the fourth quarter to seal
the 42-20 win.
Colby
Lackey
almost
matched the entire Wilburton
team’s offensive scoring (20)
with his 19-point performance.
Brandon Jim added 10 points
in the 22-point blowout. The
remaining points included Lance
Walker with 6, C.J. McClain
with 4, and Mason Jim with 3.
“That was a (great) defensive
performance,” said Coach
Manion. “If you hold any Class
3A team to 20 points, you have
good job at the line by hitting
12 of 16 points. I hope we can
keep playing great defense in
the regional tournament. If

Cottonwood Lady Panthers Head To State
For the second consecutive
year, the Cottonwood Lady
Panther eighth grade squad
has qualified for the O.R.E.S.
(Oklahoma Rural Elementary
Schools) State Basketball
Tournament. The Lady Panthers
will face Belfonte at Earlsboro
High School on Thursday at
12:00 noon. If the team gets the
win against Belfonte, they will
return to Earlsboro on Friday to
play at 5:00 pm.
Also, for the first time,
Cottonwood played host to one
of the four regional basketball
area tournaments. “It’s nice
to stay at home and play, but
=
it’s even nicer to show off our
facility and have all these other
schools come in to play here,”
said Coach Mark Barrett.
The Cottonwood girls faced
Harmony in the first round and
won 47-14. However, in the
second round the girls fell to
Grant-Goodland 45-42 in three
overtimes. “I’ve coached for 16 years
and have never been in a double
overtime game, much less a
three overtime game,” Coach
Barrett said. “It was wild
and nerve racking, but Grant
deserved to win. They played
better when it counted.”

for helping kids in the community through the R.J. Stiles Karate Club. Some of the students display awards

Coalgate Karate Students Say
“Thank You” To Instructor
R.J. Stiles wondered what
was going on the evening of
February 7 when his karate
students began gathering around
him at the Linton Auditorium.
The kids presented Stiles a
plaque thanking him for his
work and dedication to the kids
of the community through his
karate club.
In 1993, R.J. Chiles enrolled
his oldest son in karate class.
After four months of watching
his son participate in this
form of martial art, R.J. began
thinking, “This looks like fun”
and “Maybe I’ll try it.”
R.J. began his journey to
master this art and earned his
black belt in 1998. He then
decided to teach a class and
founded the R.J. Chiles Karate
Club of Coalgate. He has been
teaching karate for free for
about seven years.
Chiles initially charged a
minimal fee, just enough to
cover the rent required to
maintain a room for the kids to
take the class. Then, in 2005, an
opportunity came through that
would prove very beneficial to
many kids in Coalgate. Coalgate School provided
R.J. an opportunity to teach
karate in the Linton Auditorium
with no rental fee, and R.J.
passed this benefit to the kids.
Today, the club has a combined
total of approximately twenty
kids enrolled in the beginners
and advanced classes.
Karate helps to build
self-esteem and encourage
discipline. The form of karate
taught in Coalgate is American

It’s almost that time of year
again – tornado season – and
people are once again starting
to think about installing storm
shelters.
Coalgate City Hall reminds
citizens that a storm shelter
requires a building permit
prior to installation. Permits
are available at City Hall for
$30.50.
In truth, all year is pretty much
tornado season in Oklahoma
— but the prime conditions
begin around late March and
go through August in a typical
year.
Karate, which is said to take the
most useful elements of other
martial arts and incorporate them
into American karate techniques
and katas (forms).
On January 28, the R.J.
Chiles Karate Club of Coalgate
competed in a karate tournament
in Ada sponsored by the
Chickasaw Nation. The students
represented the club in four
separate age groups and proved
to be quite impressive and a
force to be reckoned with. They
placed 1st in the 5-6 age group,
2nd in the 7-8 age division, 3rd in
the 9-10 age division, and 3rd in
the 13-15 age group.
Classes are open to adults and
youth in the community that have
an interest in learning karate.
“All they have to do is show
up at the Linton Auditorium,”
Stiles said. Classes are held on
Tuesdays beginning at 6:30.

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Coalgate Park Building
Six years ago during my campaign for State Representative Tara and I had the
pleasure of becoming friends with Dustin Rowe and his wonderful family. It is out
of this continued friendship that we can unequivocally endorse him for United
States Representative. Out of all the candidates in this race, he alone has all the
qualifications necessary to best represent us in the Second Congressional District. First, he is not a politician. He is an attorney and businessman who, like us,
knows the unique challenges of making a living in rural Southeastern Oklahoma.
As an attorney, he has the public policy background necessary to hit the ground
running when elected. As a strong Christian, we can be confident that he will
always represent our moral values in Washington D.C.

The Department of Oklahoma American Legion and Auxiliary hosted the Mid-Winter Conference
at the Biltmore Hotel in Oklahoma City February 11-13. Department President Linda Erwin let us know where we stand on meeting our goals for the 20112012 year. She discussed our programs and gave suggestions for ways to get more involved in
our communities and help our veterans across Oklahoma. Breakout sessions were held to cover
membership, junior activities, Americanism, field service, Auxiliary Emergency Fund, and Girls
State. Our Department President was honored at a banquet that followed the meetings. Bingo and a dance
were highly anticipated after the banquet ended. Coalgate’s junior members both won at bingo! Coalgate members Cindy Taylor, Jacqueline Washington, Alexis Taylor Futischa, Jordyn Washington,
Post 242 Commander Dewayne Spears, and Charles Spears enjoyed the fellowship and informative
meetings.

Tigers Still On The Prowl
In Area Tournament
—Tupelo boys survive VLA and Paden after loss to Lomega
By HERMAN BROWN
Tupelo correspondent
The Tupelo Tigers bounce into
the Class B area tournament
this week. Coach Clay Weller’s
squad will face the Moyer Tigers
at 8 p.m. Thursday at Kingston
High School’s Event Center.
The winner will move on to
action Friday at the same facility.
However, the loser of Tupelo vs
Moyer will be eliminated from
post-season play.
“It will be a challenge for us,”
said Coach Weller. “Moyer has a
good record (18-6) and is a good
team. But when you play this
late in the playoffs, you’ll have
to go beat strong teams. We are
thrilled to death to be playing in
the area tournament. But don’t
get me wrong, we are not going
to settle on just being here. We
are going to go out and play hard
and try to knock off a couple of
these teams. We want to keep our
season going. The only way we
can do that is to beat the teams
we play from here on out.”
On Thursday, Lomega pinned
a 56-31 loss on Tupelo in the
opening round of the regional
tournament. Lomega outscored
the Tigers 28-16 in the first half
and 28-15 in the second half. The
result was the 25-point margin of
victory by LHS.
Corey McCollum was the only
Tupelo player to score in double
figures. McCollum managed 10
points in the loss. Jakota Carrell
followed with 6 points. Jon
Umsted provided 3 points. Six
other Tigers scored two points
each, including Tanner Davis,
Matt Benedict, Chisum Henry,
Zac Lewis, H.D. Bullard and
Steven Johnson.
“You can sum up this loss one
way – turnovers,” Coach Weller
said. “We had 26 turnovers. I
am not taking anything away
from Lomega. They have a good
team. But we were so careless
against their 2-2-1 zone press
and we didn’t handle it at all.
They scored 20 to 30 points off
those turnovers. You are not
going to beat anyone, especially
a good team, when you give up
that many points with turnovers.
Despite the turnovers, the
coach did credit the Tigers for
playing solid half-court defense
against Lomega.
“We also did well on the
boards,” he said.
“Corey
McCollum and Zac Lewis were
our bright spots. But there was
no way we were going to suffer
so many turnovers and survive
them against Lomega.”
On Friday, Tupelo faced an
elimination situation. The Tigers
responded with a fourth-quarter
rally to stun the Victory Life
Eagles 51-50.
Tupelo trailed 18-10 after a
quarter and 29-12 at the half.
“We were down 17 points
going into the second half,”
Coach Weller said. “It did not
look good.”
Tupelo then went to work to
outscore VLA 14-9 in the third
quarter. That made it a 3826 game going into the fourth
quarter. The Tigers then exploded
for 25 points down the stretch to
score the 51-50 victory.
Tanner Davis was the scoring
machine for Tupelo with a teamhigh 18 points. H.D. Bullard
added 9 points while Jakota
Carrell and Corey McCollum
scored 6 each. Chisum Henry
chipped in 4 points while Matt
Benedict and Zac Lewis scored
3 each. Brandon Chamberlain
rounded out the scoring with 2
points.
“It was a big win,” the coach
said. “But I just challenged them
that if the same (Tupelo) team
walked out in the third quarter as
the one playing in the first half,
we might as well leave and go to
the baseball field right now. But
we came out and played much
better. We got our stuff together
in the third quarter and crawled
back into the game. We made
enough plays to give ourselves
a chance. In the fourth quarter,
Tanner hit a couple of big 3’s for
us. One of them gave us the lead
at 49-48 with about 1:15 to go.
They hit a couple of free throws to
go back on top 50-49 with about
40 seconds to go. We went down
after that and Chisum Henry got
an offensive rebound and a putback for the 51-50 lead.”
Henry’s go-head came with a
little over 20 seconds remaining.
Victory Life had three more
chances down the stretch to
overtake the Tigers. The Eagles
missed a trey and Tupelo got the
rebound. However, THS suffered
a turnover with 15 seconds to go.
VLA used the extra possession to
fire up another trey. Once again
the long-ball attempt was off the
mark. THS touched the missed
shot before it went out of bounds.
That allowed VLA a few seconds
to erase the 51-50 Tupelo lead.
The Eagles got the ball inside
and fired up a 2-point shot.
“I thought that last one was
going to beat us,” Coach Weller
said. “But it was too hard and it
went long and over the rim. Time
ran out and we escaped with the
win. We were very fortunate to
move on with a victory. To come
back from 17 down at the half
and to dodge their three misses
late, it was a great win for our
team.”
On Saturday, Tupelo was
back at Ada High School in the
consolation finals of the regional
tournament. The Tigers used the
opportunity to notch a 34-30 win
over the Paden Pirates.
Tupelo broke an 8-8 tie in
the first quarter with a 21-17
advantage. Both teams scored
only 13 points in the second
half. That allowed the Tigers to
survive with a 34-30 win.
Tanner Davis poured in 15
points in the win. Jakota Carrell
added 9 points. H.D. Bullard
followed with 5 points while
Chisum Henry provided 3. Matt
Benedict and Corey McCollum
finished with 1 point each.
“We led by four at the half,”
said Coach Weller. “They tied us
once in the third quarter, but then
we pulled away to six points and
pretty much held them at bay the
rest of the way. Sometimes you
play not to lose instead of playing
to win. Once again, we struggled
on offense but played sound
defense and controlled the board.
I credit our kids for plugging
away and getting another win
when we had to have it to extend
our season. Now, we’ll go to
Kingston and see what we can do
there.”

COALGATE RECORD REGISTER—FEBRUARY 22, 2012— PAGE B-5
FROM TRASH TO ART — Coalgate High School students with their trash art projects. From left – Shyanne Kelsey; Brittany Brazeal - Pong; Daniel White - Trash
Box, 2nd place; art teacher Joyce Prock; Dalton Idell - Green Cat; Amber Wright - Greenhouse; Nick McBride - Flowerpot, 3rd place; art teacher Charity Eidson;
Anthony Bissonnette – Captain Can Man, 1st place; teacher Wendy Ringels. Selina Ashton, not pictured, made the teepee on the table.
Students Turn Trash Into Art
It takes imagination to turn
trash into art. But that’s what
some Coalgate High students
have done.
Using soft drink cans, egg
cartons, old newspapers and
other items that most generally
end up in the landfill, the
students came up with creative
projects to enter in the 2012
Alternative Education Annual
Trash Art Contest.
Art teacher Joyce Prock says
the students get a lot of their
materials and supplies from the
community. People save things
like milk jugs, aluminum cans,
newspapers, egg cartons and
cardboard drink trays, she said.
The lumberyard and contractors
donate scrap sheetrock, scrap
wood, paint and even nails.
The students’ trash art
projects were displayed at the
Coal County Commissioners’
building. Judging took place
last week.
Anthony Bissonnette took
first place for his Captain Can
Man. Daniel White won second
place on his trash box, and Nick
McBride’s flowerpot won third
place.

Presidential Preferential
Primary Election Information
Absentee Ballots
Voters in Coal County who
want to have absentee ballots
mailed to them for the March 6
Presidential Preferential Primary Election should apply now,
County Election Board Secretary Vicky Salmon said today.
Although the County Election
Board can accept applications
for absentee ballots until 5:00
p.m. on Wednesday, February
29, Salmon urged voters who
want to vote by absentee ballot
to apply early.
Absentee ballot application
forms are available at the County Election Board office located
in the Coal County Courthouse
at 4 N. Main Street, Suite 10,
Coalgate, OK 74538. The
forms also can be downloaded
and printed from the Internet at
www.elections.ok.gov.
“At least two mail transactions must be made,” Salmon
said. “The County Election
Board must mail the ballots to
the voter and the voter must return the voted ballot by mail.”
Ballots must be in the hands of
the County Election Board by
7:00 p.m. on Election Day in
order to be counted.
Any registered voter may
vote by absentee ballot in any
election in which he or she is
eligible to vote. It is not necessary to give a reason or excuse
for voting absentee.
“While anyone can vote absentee without giving a reason,
the law still provides several
excuses, and it is to the advantage of some voters to use one
of them,” Salmon said. By stating one of the following reasons
on their applications, these voters can activate some special
conditions that make it easier
for them to use absentee ballots.
The reasons are:
• Voters who are physically
incapacitated and voters who
care for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left
unattended may vote absentee.
They may apply only by mail,
by fax, or by telegraph.
• Voters who are confined
to nursing homes in the county
may vote absentee. An absentee voting board usually goes
to the nursing home a few days
before the election, sets up a
small polling place and allows
these persons to vote under circumstances similar to those at a
regular precinct polling place.
They may apply only by mail or
by fax.
• Military personnel and residents of the county living overseas and the spouses and dependents of each group are eligible
to vote absentee without being
registered. These voters may
apply by mail, by e-mail, or by
fax.
Military personnel should
contact the voting service officers in their units for application forms and additional information.
Residents of Oklahoma living overseas can obtain the
same materials from any United
States military installation and
from United States embassies
and consulates.
Military personnel and overseas citizens also can download
the appropriate application form
from the Internet at www.fvap.
gov.
Sample Ballots
Sample ballots are available at the Coal County Election Board office for voters who
want to get a preview of what
will be at stake in the Presidential Preferential Primary Election.
Sample ballots can be viewed
at the Election Board office dur-
ing regular office hours, 8:00
a.m. through 2:00 p.m.
Sample ballots also will be
posted outside every precinct
polling place on Election Day.
The candidates on the
Democratic ballot are Darcy
G. Richardson, Randall Terry,
Barack Obama, Jim Rogers and
Bob Ely.
Candidates on the Republican ballot are Jon Huntsman
(withdrawn), Ron Paul, Rick
Perry (withdrawn), Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Michele
Bachmann (withdrawn) and
Newt Gingrich.
Cycril Man Charged
With Drugs, Stolen
Police Badges & War Medals
A38-year-old Cyril, Oklahoma
man was charged last week with
possession of illegal drugs, 12
stolen police and correctional
officer badges and a number of
German WWII medals, pins,
badges and ribbons.
Probable cause affidavits filed
by Coal County sheriff’s deputy
Jarel Bailey state that he was
patrolling on SH 3 shortly after
midnight on February 15 when
he came across a truck parked
on the shoulder of the roadway
with the engine running and
the running lights on. When he
stopped to check on the vehicle,
he found the driver, James
Patrick Lewis, asleep behind
the wheel.
Lewis produced a driver’s
license and insurance verification
but was sweating profusely and
appeared extremely nervous,
Bailey said. He asked Lewis for
consent to search the vehicle, to
which Lewis agreed. By this
time, deputy Bobby Hatton had
arrived at the scene.
During the vehicle search,
Bailey and Hatton found four
plastic baggies containing a
white powdery residue, two
glass pipes containing a white
powder substance, and several
pills. The powder substance
field tested positive for
methamphetamine. The pills
have been submitted to an OSBI
laboratory for testing.
Bailey also found a brown
bank bag on the back seat that
contained several police and
correctional officer badges,
some of which were inscribed
with a name. Lewis said the
badges belonged to a man who
was in jail in southwestern
Oklahoma.
Lewis was arrested and
transported to the Coal County
jail.
On February 16, Coal
County Chief Investigator Cliff
Ridgway began an investigation
into the badges and learned that
they were stolen in a burglary
that occurred in Fletcher,
Oklahoma.
Ridgway obtained a search
warrant to recover the badges
and sent a picture of the
badges to the victim. The
victim identified the badges
as belonging to her. She said
several old war medals that had
belonged to her father-in-law
and handed down to her through
the family were also stolen in
the burglary. During booking
at the Coal County jail, Lewis
had described a box of old war
medals that were in his truck,
saying he was worried about the
wrecker driver stealing them.
Ridgway obtained a second
search warrant that he and
Bailey executed. The box and
medals were recovered and have
been identified by the victim.
During an interview with
Bailey and the Fletcher Chief of
Police, Lewis stated that he had
purchased the medals for $100

Lady Tigers See Season Draw To End
—Tupelo girls advance to regional consolation game Saturday before being eliminated
By HERMAN BROWN
Tupelo correspondent
The Tupelo Lady Tigers saw
their 2012 basketball season
come to an end Saturday in
the third round of the Class B
regional tournament at the Ada
High School Event Center.
Coach Missy Rogers’ THS
girls were eliminated from the
playoffs on a 42-37 loss to the
Sasakawa Lady Vikings.
Prior to Saturday’s loss,
the Tupelo girls won a pair of
elimination-game showdowns
in regional action. The Lady
Tigers downed the Paden Lady
Pirates 43-31 Thursday at Paden
High School. Then, on Friday,
Tupelo ousted the #15 ranked
Pittsburg Lady Panthers 43-34
at Ada.
The wonderful run for the
Lady Tigers started Thursday
with that double-digit win over
Paden on the Lady Pirates’
home floor. THS led 26-12 at
halftime. Tupelo was narrowly
outscored, 19-17, in the second
half. However, the strong first
half helped secure the 43-31
win.
Three Tupelo girls finished
in double figures in scoring,
including Brittany Sanders with
13 points, Kate McCoy with 12,
and Kayley Sanders with 10.
Kelsie Warner added 6 points
and Kurston Chamberlain
provided 2.
“We started off really strong,”
said Coach Rogers. “We had a
little lull in the third quarter, but
had good defense and enough
offense to get us by.”
The Lady Tigers had survived
their first test of elimination.
“I told them not to think
about that,” said Coach Rogers.
“When we stepped out on the
court, it was all about us and
what we do. We went out and
executed and got the win.”
On Friday, Tupelo faced a
much stiffer test. The Lady
Tigers squared off at Ada High
School against the 15th-ranked
Pittsburg Lady Panthers.
Despite the challenge, Tupelo
rose up and notched an
impressive 9-point win against
Pittsburg.
Pittsburg led 8-6 after one
quarter. Tupelo then rallied to
a 24-15 halftime advantage.
The Lady Tigers then matched
Pittsburg’s 19 points in the
second half. That protected the
nine point lead and secured the
43-34 victory.
Senior Tamara Thompson led
the way to victory with a solid
12-point performance. Kate
McCoy also poured in 12 points
for the only other double-digit
showing.
Other THS scoring included
Brittany Sanders with 7 points,
Kayley Sanders with 6, and
Kelsie Warner and Kurston
Chamberlain with 3 points
each.
“We started slow in this
one,” said Coach Rogers. “But
our kids kept getting more
confidence and stepped up and
played one of our best games
against the No. 15 team in our
class. It was a great win for our
girls and it kept the season going
into Saturday.”
Tupelo had been hoping for a
rematch against the Sasakawa
Lady Vikings. The Lady Tigers
had lost to Sasakawa in the
district championship game. A
rematch would afford THS with
the chance for a little revenge.
Once again, the outcome of the
game would eliminate the losing
team.
Sasakawa broke out to a 14-8
lead in the first quarter. The
Lady Vikings matched Tupelo’s
10 points in the second quarter
for a 24-18 edge to maintain
the six-point lead going into the
break.
The Lady Tigers came out in the
third quarter and outscored SHS
11-5. The effort tied the game
at 29-29 going into the final
quarter.
Tupelo fought on to tie the
game and then take a 37-35 lead
with a little over a minute left in
the game. Sasakawa responded
quickly to tie the game at 3737. The Lady Vikings then
used a Tupelo turnover to slip
back in front 39-37. After THS
failed to score, the Lady Tigers
were forced to foul Sasakawa.
The Lady Vikings cashed in
foul shots and sealed the 42-37
victory over Tupelo.
Brittany Sanders finished the
game with a double-figure 11
point showing. Kate McCoy
added 9 points in a balanced
attack. Kelsie Warner was one
back with 8 points. Kayley
Sanders provided 5. Tamara
Thompson
and
Kurston
Chamberlain added 2 points
each to close out the scoring.
“That was a tough loss,” said
Coach Rogers. “If we could
have kept the possession late
in the game we’d have won the
game. Our free throw shooting
didn’t help either. We hit only
nine of 22 foul shots. They
(Lady Vikings) were 13 of 20.
“Our season has ended, but I
thought we played well at the
right time of the season. I told
our girls I couldn’t be more
proud of them. They bought
into basketball and learned to
love it. They put their hearts
out there and nobody around
here outworked them. And
we’ll have almost all of them
back. There is only one senior,
Tamara Thompson. She is a
good kid and works really hard.
She will be missed.”

Wake Up America-25
Does anyone in our House of Representatives or the U. S. Senate know what “Executive Order” means?
Do you as a reader, know what “Executive Order” means? It seems as though Obama is the only person
on the planet who actually knows what “Executive Order” really means. This president has used this term
so many times during his first three(3), almost four(4) years in office that those words are the first thing out
of his mouth when he gets up in the morning.
Think about all of the commissions, czars, committees, and other special interest groups that this president
has put on the United States payroll, all being a result of “Executive Order”. This president is not a businessman. If this president were a business man, he would stay at home, roll up his sleeves, get people
around him who understand budgets, and begin to develop “real” jobs for the millions of American that
are jobless. What does Obama do? He and Michelle go to India, Australia, South America, Africa, and
Spain, just to name a few trips, to accomplish what? Have any “real “jobs been developed here in the
United States of America because of these multi-billion dollar trips? Show me one and I will not say another
word!
This Democrat administration continues to sell the American public on more highway, bridge, and other
infrastructure jobs. One would think that all of Obama’s gurus could think beyond the “white wash” policies
of FDR and Lyndon Johnson. All of these jobs are paid for by the American taxpayer , by the way.
We need leadership in Washington D.C. and need it right now! One leader that we do have is Senator Tom
Coburn of Oklahoma. This Senator has publicly shown ways in which our leaders could trim this frivolous
budget. You as a taxpayer should hold your Senators and Representatives to the fire. Every Senator and
Representative that voted for Obama’s health care bill should be run out of town. They should be immediately removed from office. Voting for that bill showed their true colors. They have no idea what is in
those 2,700 pages of garbage and equine feces! Ask Senator Max Baucus of Montana why he continues to
support Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Barney Franks. These people are not
leaders, they are parasites! They can not balance their own budgets. Why are they in Washington D.C.?
Many of you who are reading this, have traveled outside these borders , as my wife and I have done. After
returning back to these shores, every one of you will say the same thing. THIS IS STILL THE GREATEST
NATION ON THIS EARTH! Although this liberal administration has tried to evoke “change” through Socialist policy, Americans still enjoys many freedoms not seen in other countries. God has blessed this nation
from its beginning and continues to bless us every day even though we go through times of question and
uncertainty.
In my industry, this time of year brings on bull sales and special female cattle sales all over the U.S. This
week, a cattle breeder in South Dakota sent their annual catalogue. Within that catalogue ,on page 4 , the
following was written:
Abraham Lincoln’s Top-Ten List
1. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
2. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
Paid For By
3. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
4. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
Deward Strong
5. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
6. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
7. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
8. You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
9. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence.
10. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
Primaries are coming up soon and November of 2012 will be here sooner than you think, vote wisely!

—Monitoring High Blood Pressure At Home
By Joe Don Burns
Has your doctor recommended
keeping closer tabs on your
blood pressure? One convenient
way to do this is by monitoring
your blood pressure at home, in
between doctor visits. You can
do this in a matter of minutes.
But first, a refresher.
What is blood pressure and
what do the numbers mean?
Blood pressure is the force of
blood pushing against the walls
of your arteries. Blood pressure
is actually the measure of two
numbers. Systolic pressure is
the force on artery walls when
your heart beats. Diastolic
pressure is the force on your
arteries between beats – when
your heart is relaxed. Blood
pressure is invisible and silent,
but can also be deadly when it’s

Home monitors can help in
many ways. You can use them
to spot high blood pressure
(hypertension) early, especially
if you have another condition
that puts you at higher risk. The
American Heart Association
suggests that anyone with high
blood pressure – that’s one-third
of American adults – monitors it
at home. Home monitors are a
way to see if your medication
and lifestyle changes are
keeping your blood pressure
within a safe range. All in all,
home monitors can help you
take control of your health while
cutting health care costs.
You can buy a home monitor
right here in our store without a
prescription. If you need help
finding the right one for you,
let me know. But here is some
information to get you started.
Home monitors have these
parts:
• An inflatable cuff or strap.
An inner layer fills with air and
squeezes your arm. An outer
layer holds the cuff in place.
You inflate the cuff manually by
pumping a bulb. Or, this occurs
at the touch of a button using
a digital device. This depends
upon the type of monitor you
buy.
• A gauge. This is either a
digital readout or a dial that
points to the blood pressure
number.
Not all home monitors have
stethoscopes, but if yours does,
you can listen to the sounds your
blood makes as it flows through
an artery in the crook of your
elbow. Digital cuffs record this
information for you.
Here are some things to
consider before buying a home
monitor:
If you’re overweight or very
muscular, look for a monitor
with a larger arm cuff. A digital
wrist monitor might be best if
you can’t find an arm cuff that
fits, or if arm monitors cause
too much discomfort.
If you have hearing loss, a
monitor with a digital display
might be best.
Although
available,
devices that measure blood
pressure at your finger are not
recommended. Just getting started? Give
yourself some time to learn
how to use your home monitor.
Measure your blood pressure
twice daily to start, but not right
when you first wake up. Avoid
food, caffeine, alcohol, and
tobacco for at least 30 minutes
beforehand.
Empty your
bladder and sit still for at least
three to five minutes before
beginning. Raise your arm to
heart level and don’t talk while
testing.
If you run into any trouble,
bring your home monitor to me
and we can make sure you’re
using it properly and that it’s
calibrated for accurate readings.
Call if you have any questions.
Have a great day!
