Around & About Hydro
HYDRO—If the paper is late this week it is because ice and snow followed summertime temperatures
Sunday evening and roads and wrecks were everywhere. In the midst of it all, was rolling thunder! As
Shelby Woods said, the roads were “slicker than a Safeway chicken.” Your news crew did not make it to the
office on Monday, and both the Carneys are still fighting the respiratory bug.
Even before the ice hit, Joanna Slagell took a tumble in a parking lot at Yukon and she looks like she lost
a prize fight. Hubby Dwight took her to the E.R. because she thought perhaps her wrist was broken, but it
was “only” sprained, which hurts just as bad.
Paul Jones, our Wake Forest Professor, was home to visit his dad, Jay, but hightailed it out of town early
when he heard the storm was coming.
Two Hydro alumns got together in OKC last week when Glendall Pope Smith took daughter Makaeli to
shop for a prom dress and of course they found it at the shop where Ashley Crissman works.
Amanda Stockton went to Stillwater on Friday to surprise friend Joyce Coombes Wilson on her birthday, with cake and flowers. They had a great time with Joyce and Andrews’ two little ones. Amanda’s kids
have been sick so stayed with Grammy Stockton. The elder Stocktons, Larry and Karla, took Amanda,
Jeremy and kids to a Thunder game, carriage rides in Brickton and other fun activities to celebrate Amanda
and Larry’s birthdays.
Kurt Bright celebrated his birthday with a family dinner and his favorite chocolate pie.
Others celebrating birthdays were Keri John, Ben Schantz, Bralee Giblet,Essie Gesell Muns and Marla
Eichelberger. Jody and Pam Chisum celebrated another anniversary.
Be Kind this week and pray for all the sick little children who have the flu!

Little Chanclee Askew fell and
got a big knot on her head. She
took a ride in an ambulance to
Carnegie, where she was pronounced okay except for some
pain on her sweet little forehead.

big bruise. The family thanks the
Eakly First Responders and
Carnegie EMS for their fast response and comfort.

Garret Saunders of Binger, pictured with his sponsor, Representative David Perryman, House District #56, did an outstanding job the
week of February 9, 2015, as Perryman’s first Legislative Page of
the 2015 Legislative Session. Garrett, the son of Robert and Sandra
Saunders is a Junior at Binger-Oney High School. He is active in
his church and the FFA Program. He hopes to attend OSU and become a Veteranarian. Now that he has seen the legislative process
first hand, politics also looks like a possibility. Garrett spent the
week with students from around Oklahoma, getting a first row seat
to the legislative process in the House of Representatives. Each week,
the House Pages have a mock legislative session, Garrett was selected by his peers to serve as Majority Floor Leader of Pageville.
Perryman said, “What an outstanding young man!”
