Never thought I’d get griped out because I was standing up for the safety and well being of the county.

But that was the case late last week when a reader was disgruntled I asked for county commissioners to reinstate a county-wide burn ban.

Since the piece was written and the burn ban consequently called for, nearly four inches of rain has fallen.

Yes, Will Rogers we waited just a minute and things changed.

But who knew there was going to be 3.87 inches of rain fall from last Thursday through Sunday?

Certainly not the weatherman, who seldom knows what’s going on.

Certainly not me and certainly not the county commissioners.

We’re all glad we got it and now outside burning should be allowed.

If someone’s house would have burned to the ground due to the lifted burn ban, everyone including our chirping reader would have felt worse than terrible.


It was good as always to see the members of the 1972 Purcell State Football Championship team here for kudos during halftime of the Purcell-Madill Homecoming tilt at Conger Field.

It’s always fun to celebrate the fete of that team.

Congratulations again on that State title in 1972.


Congratulations to the Wayne Lady Bulldogs for earning a berth in the State Softball Tournament in Oklahoma City. It’s their first trip back to ASA Hall of Fame Stadium since 2006.


Oklahoma Lt. Governor Todd Lamb has scheduled a visit to McClain County for Monday at 10 a.m. at the McClain County OSU Extension Center.

Even though that’s the day the government decided to celebrate Columbus Day and all governmental offices, including the courthouse, will be closed, the show will go on.

According to State Rep. Lisa Billy’s office, the Extension Center will be open for the meeting.


We just got the news late Tuesday that Washington’s Lady Warriors have earned yet another berth at the State Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament.

Good luck to them at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium, as well.

And, good luck to Purcell in its Regional tournament at Byng this weekend as they try to advance to State.
