The morning blog 5-21-2021

Good morning, here is today’s blog, rated the top blog in the 700 block of west fifth street in Heavener.

Thanks to the people who mentioned our blog upon its return yesterday. You are appreciated. Honest.

I had a friend ask the other day how I selected what to put on the newsletter, website and newspaper. You would not believe the number of emails that I receive daily. Most of them are trash, but I always try to put anything on LeFlore County in the various publishing options.

Not always, but almost. I put the most emphasis on what I think will be the most popular, of course, but I also post some stories that I know only a few people are interested in, hoping those people will read it, share it and become fans of the media conglomerate that is the Heavener Ledger/LCJ.

Looks like we will have another wet day for Friday. I know, dangit, everybody wants dry weather to play outside. But just know, we would love to have this kind of precipitation in July through the first part of September. Notice, the word precipitation? I could have said rain, but I wanted to impress everybody with my wide-ranging vocabulary.

I covered the HUA, city council meetings last night. I had promised to stream the meetings since they didn’t have the dreaded, time wasting executive sessions, but the wi-fi at City Hall was glitching so I could not provide the stream. Sorry, dudes and dudesses.

Three LeFlore County baseball players Matt Holzhammer of Wister, Jagger Dill of Poteau and Braden Riggs of Spiro were selected to play in the OBCA all-state games in Enid June 6. Congratulations to them along with Andy Perdue, who will coach the Middle East team.

On today’s events, there is a fundraiser for Jimmy Tolleson at the Hontubby Community Center, funeral services for Hazel Evans are planned along with a celebration of life for Myrtle Whiteaker, plus KTC will hold a party for three retirees today.

Chiverle Raymond, 69, of Fanshawe passed away Monday and was born Jan. 27, 1952 in Poteau. Services are 2 p.m. Monday at Evans Chapel of Memories in Poteau.

David Lee Griffith, 56, passed away May 17 in Fort Smith and was born Dec. 3, 1964 in Calfiornia. No services are planned at this time.
