Out of care and concern for the community and families of Purcell and surrounding towns, the Heart of Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce board voted to not host a downtown trick or treat event this year.

“Our main concern is to help kids have a great Halloween in a way that will also help our community stay healthy,” chamber executive director Elisabeth Baker said. “To do that, we decided that the Chamber’s best role this year is to promote the businesses and organizations that are having their own, smaller events in town.”


Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about Daylight Saving Time ending.

The time will change on Sunday, November 1, so don’t forget to turn your clock back 1 hour before you go to bed on Halloween night, October 31.


This is an old favorite recipe of mine. Comes from my friend Tiny Wilson who used to bring this to potlucks we had here at The Register.

Tamale Pie

1 cup cornmeal

2 cups boiling water

1 cup cold water

2 tsp. salt

1 TBL shortening

1/3 cup chopped green pepper

1/2 lb. ground chuck

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup chopped ripe olives

1/2 cup chopped onions

2-1/2 cups cooked tomatoes

1 TBL chili powder

1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1/2 cup grated cheese

1 small can corn

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine first 4 ingredients and cook for 10 minutes, then let set.

Combine shortening, grown meat, green peppers and salt and brown, stirring constantly. Add remaining ingredients, except cheese, and mix well.

Line bottom and sides of greased 2 qt. casserole with cooked cornmeal and mixed ingredients and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes.
