In the Garden
By Catherine Dougherty
A Moment with Maxine
Thankfully February is over and we see remarkable changes in the
garden... spring is coming!
by Maxine Bamburg
The Currant bushes have tender green leaves and the Viburnum
blooms are the size of a button. The tiny yellow Forsythia blooms,
which are always the first to arrive at the garden party, are slowly
covering the barren branches before the leaves emerge.
The black mass of the speeding locomotive blended into the
moonless night as it raced along
the tracks strung across the Kansas prairie in the early 1900’s.
A young fireman swung open
the firebox door and shoveled
more coal into the blazing inferno
fueling the train, then leaned
against his shovel to observe the
weary engineer nodding at the
His gaze wandered to the
tracks ahead where the oil
headlamps attempted to light the
midnight darkness, succeeding
with only a few feet at a time.
A troublesome sensation
stirred in his breast; an unknown
fear of what might lie ahead in the
Suddenly, far down the tracks,
he saw a very small spark of light
where there should be none, but
it vanished just as quickly, leaving him wondering if his tired eyes
were playing tricks.
Following blind instinct, he
kicked the engineer’s seat.
“Barney, wake up!”
The sleeping engineer went
into action, throwing the small
brass level to force compressed
air into each set of the train’s
brakes and slamming the massive
train to a sudden, grinding stop.
. Many people, even some
Christians, are traveling at breakneck speed down dimly lit corridors.
Perhaps some small spark in
their sleeping conscience sends
warning flares from time to time,
but unlike the anxious fireman’s
concern, the alarms are ignored.
We may even try arguing with
the cautionary signs. “There will
be another time for me. I’m having too much fun now. Later, I’ll
set my life right with God.”
When the racing locomotive
ground to a halt, the fireman
turned at the sound of a yell from
alongside the track.
From out of the darkness, an
unknown brakeman climbed into
the cab, a dead signal and unlit
lantern in his hand.
“Man, we got a train off the
track just ahead and the conductor sent me back here to signal,
but I couldn’t get the lantern or
the signal lit. Then I was down to
my last match and all it did was
flare up briefly, then go out. “
But that one small splash of
flame on the dark prairie was
enough to be seen and avoid a
We all have the opportunity
to awaken from slumber and respond to the light that Jesus offers; thereby avoiding hazardous
accidents and deadly consequences.
Wouldn’t it make for safer and
happier traveling if the remainder
of our way home was well lit?

Washita ladies hear
about new feature to
obtain DAR Records
by Marilyn Wilson
Washita Chapter NSDAR met a Café’ Clinton on February 9, with
Regent Mareen Hallmark opening with the DAR Ritual. She was assisted by Acting Chaplin Virginia Reid.
Ellena Womack led the Pledge of Allegiance. Doris Minor accompanied the ladies in singing the National Anthem.
Barbara O’Neil, Vice Regent, reviewed the President General’s letter, which encouraged members in their activities and celebrations of
DAR’s 125th Anniversary.
Marilyn Wilson gave the National Defense Report on the “Jacksonville Ladies” who attend every Veteran’s burial at Jacksonville
National Cemetery in Florida to assist and comfort families.
For the Indian Minute, Ellena Womack displayed a hand woven
Indian rug in the form of the United States Flag.
Marilyn Wilson told the group about the opening of a new Ronald
McDonald Facility in Garrison Tower at Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City. It consists of bedrooms, living area, kitchen and dining
room, with onsite laundry facilities and an OKC Thunder playroom.
This allows families with children in the hospital a restful place to
stay, eat and converse with others in similar situations.
Doris Minor discussed the Department of Defense’s effort to encourage the recognition of Viet Nam War Veterans and their families.
A Committee was named to be in charge of a two year commitment of
the Chapter to recognize these Veterans.
Ellena Womack reported on a new feature added to DAR Records
System which allows a researcher to purchase supporting documentation on line at www.dar.org. Copies are $10 and supporting documentation is $20 for instant downloads. Members are advised to order the record copy first.
Marilyn Wilson then gave the history of the United States Flag.
The meeting was closed with the reading of The Daughter’s Pledge.
Members present were Cody Eakins, Darlyne Seal, Marilyn Wilson, Ellena Womack, Barbara O’Neil, Judy Long, Ramona Duff, Doris
Minor, Debra Campbell, Virginia Reid, Mareen Hallmark and Judy
Many gardens are sporting darling Crocus and Hyacinths which
may be seen as low spots of scent and color. The buds on the early
Jonquils and Daffodils are swelling and some have already opened.
Tulips have pushed through the soil and a few purple blooms can be
seen on the Vinca. The amazing leaves of the Surprise Flowers have
broken through the soil as large clumps of yellowish spears, pushing
with incredible strength to emerge. Tiny buds of miniature leaves
can be seen on the Roses and their arrival truly marks the end of
Unfortunately all of the activity includes the rush of early weeds
who have crashed the party like a crowd of raucous drunks. Weeding must begin in earnest with each warm day for if left to their own
devices, they will overpower the true guests.
Hoeing is primarily used in the vegetable patch to remove weeds in a
crowded space; the hoe can get in and about the vegetables easily
without harming them. The hoe, like a good knife, is a balanced tool
and this balance allows the gardener to literally drop the weight of it
on the intruder without much physical effort.
A gentle rhythm is used and is almost like a dance…slowly lift-drop,
lift-drop. It is quite effective if done properly. Experts at hoeing are
often amused by those who use a frantic chopping-action, which is
a waste of energy and also employs the human back to do the job of
an expertly maneuvered hoe.
For the flower garden, hand removal is the only logical answer. Experts agree that to truly remove weeds it is necessary to trace the
stem of the weed below the ground to the base of origin, follow the
outlying roots with the finger tips, then remove all of it in a slow
steady pulling motion, root and all in its entirety. This will insure
permanent removal of the culprit. It is difficult to feel the root system
wearing gloves so many gardeners choose to weed gloveless… thus
the term ‘green thumb’.
Weeding can be an almost a Zen-like activity… calming, unrushed,
and quieting. When the soil is moist and the weather not yet hot, it
can be a perfect way to spend an afternoon
. The rewards of successful weeding are a stack of wilting weeds, a
lovely garden and the satisfying feeling of a job well done. When the
task is completed, reward yourself with the gift of an English trowel.
They are relatively expensive but are the best in the world and will
last a lifetime. Every gardener deserves one... maybe I'll gift myself
*I suggest my 'weed test' before working all day... pick one and see
how quickly it wilts. If it wilts almost instantly, you are free to weed
like crazy. If remains somewhat perky for ten to thirty minutes, don't
trouble yourself weeding... it will not be a fruitful endeavor.
And don't plan to plant anything new on the good weeding days...
whatever is planted or transplanted will have a difficult time and will

Around & About Hydro
HYDRO—We think that Spring is finally on the way. The moisture has helped some of the crops, but
more rain is needed to make a wheat crop and to prepare for the summer crops.
We are glad that Betty Eakins is finally home from the hospital in OKC and is recuperating at the home
of Roy and Jill Stewart. She has had a really rough time.
Earl Foreman is in an OKC hospital with pneumonia. This has been a winter of much illness.
We are sorry that the Hydro-Eakly teams lost in the final season of basketball, but we are really proud
of them, nonetheless.
Besides all the end of season basketball games, area folks have been on the go. Some who attended the
Thunder Game on Sunday night were Jody and Shay Hicks, Joe and Lacy Harris and Lacy’s brother, Colt
and Tiffany Beene and Jaxton of Fort Cobb. A number of folks went to the Miranda Lambert Concert as
Jeremy and Amanda Stockton, Wyatt and Lilly met Jeremy’s parents, Larry and Karla, and his brother
Josh at Medicine Park on Saturday, where they spent the night. On Sunday, they went to Lawton to join
other family members to celebrate the 86th birthday of Randall Stockton. Randall’s children, Larry, Joe and
Marsha Clift and their families were there along with many of the grandchildren, and Randall’s younger
brother from Blanchard.
Prayers for Cathy Crain who is having some health problems
Our sympathy to the Stotts family at the loss of Patsy. Patsy passed away just 31 days after her
husband Jake. They truly were a team and will be greatly missed.
Of course we are all saddened by the tragic death of Tristen Barger of Hinton who was killed in the car
accident. She has relatives in the Hydro area and of course, all our small communities are so connected and
related. Our sympathy to her and prayrs for Samantha Dennington who was injured so badly.
Many birthday celebrations went on recently. Those Cavanaugh boys, Doug and Robert shared their
birthday. Tonya Kitson and daughter Karson had birthdays just a couple of days apart. Others celebrating
were Scott Hume, Kim Graham, Micah Carney, Melody Gregg Morris, Darla Hawkins, and Elise Christensen.
Our friend Truman asks, “What happens if you get scared half to death twice?”
by Dorothy Adams
EAKLY—Our sympathy is extended to the family of Randy Kardokus. His services were Monday at
the First Baptist Church with lunch for the family at the Community Center.
Guests at the Eakly Assembly of God Church Sunday were Kevin and Lori Pearcy. They were celebrating Gale Pearcy’s birthday. Following church, they took Gale and Donna out for lunch
. Jerry and Kay Williams visited daughter, Misty and Zach Chandler and Hadley in Kansas recently.
Terry Pearcy is improving after his surgery.
Slade Klein, son of Rob and Gina, has been moved from the Critical Care Unit but is still in serious
condition following his car wreck in Texas. He has pneumonia and still has a feeding tube and trach tube
and will have more surgeries in the future. Younger brother Dakota got to visit him before coming to Eakly
for a while. The family appreciates all the prayers and asks that they continue. Slade has a long road ahead,
but they are thankful for every bit of progress. If you wish to send him a card, call Joyce Carney at 405-6632568 or 797-3648 and she will share the address.
Everett Taylor had surgery in Oklahoma City on Friday. Margie Scott took Everett’s mother, Virginia to
OKC to be with the family. Virginia stayed with Margie for several days. Everett is expected to be home on
Monday or Tuesday.
Margie’s Saturday guests were Carroll and Mary Kay Scott who brought lunch. Ruby Thiessen and
Linda Thiessen are both on the sick list.
Dorene Carpenter is recovering from a fall, last month. We hope she is feeling much better.
Bill Coe is some better but now has shingles. Very painful!
Jody Chisum of Perryton, Texas spent the night with his mother, Mildred Chisum at Hydro. The next
day, Bob Chisum, his son-in-law, Steve Galacia and Jody attended a bull sale.
Carolyn Wilburn’s Sunday visitors were Carol Kenedy, T.J. Morrison and Kenedy Ann.
Saturday visitors in my home were Scotty, Maggie, Jeannie, Raymond and Brian Adams. Maggie’s
family came for a visit on Saturday night and Sunday.

Once Over Lightly
by Tony Lightcap
Don’t Fear the Silence
There are many days in life that the weather man is so far off it is embarrassing. One
time back in the early nineties around the first part of March, when I was living Bixby the weather man
forecast that we would likely get a dusting of snow overnight. When I woke up the next
morning we had just shy of a foot on the ground. What other job can you name that you
can be wrong over half the time and still get to keep it??
Today I am finding myself with another weather day that is nearly a copy of that day. So I guess I
can say goodbye to my chicken house project, the cycle ride, and to the pre-plotting of the vegetable
garden at least for today. These are the kinds of projects that keep gas in our tanks… metaphorically
However, there must be a reason why we are faced with these type days now and then. Today I
have the fireplace going, the sliding glass door open and I am watching the good Lord show off in the
form of snow. To make matters even better I have a batch of chili in the crock pot that is screaming my
name like Hillary at Bill during a wet T-shirt contest at Daytona Beach.
Some days I’d just rather be without the noise of the television and the contemplation of which
desperate house wife is most in need of a lip waxing. The three people in this family all enjoy one
another but sometimes our interests don’t quite match up. When I tell them that they should never be
afraid to be alone with their own thoughts, they often look at me like I look at the guy who comes to
the front door to sell aluminum siding.
They seem even more perplexed when I tell them it is actually good for them to do so. I believe the
thought of being alone with their own thoughts scares them. It should not be feared, it should be
celebrated and revered. Sadly the appreciation of solitude seems to be generational, the old cats get it
and the whipper snappers don’t.
A day of silence and self-reflection can often give our batteries the charge they need to help us
muddle thru the busy times when silence is nowhere to be had. It is a good feeling to realize that while
the rest of the world has gone a bit insane, there is a nice safe place within our own brains that still
has its wits about it. I will be the first one to admit that too much alone time can drive a man to
madness.Still it is a good idea to give our brains a break from information overload now and then.
I recently visited one of those ultimate computer software stores to see if I could find the latest
version of “Office” in order to help me with typing my articles. The kid with the nose ring and a
jailhouse tattoo who helped me told me the best way to take care of that was to download it off the
internet. Well ,of course he is selling computer software, that is part of what his probation officer
refers to as “rehabilitation”… all I can say it is a good thing I don’t have a daughter because I’d have
to invest in a bigger shotgun.
When I told him I had no intention of hooking this beast up to the internet he had this look on his
face like I was speaking Portuguese. He was having a hard time grasping the idea that for what I was
doing, it just was not necessary and would serve as more of a distraction than a help. Also, if your
laptop is not hooked to the internet you don’t have to worry about spyware.
Getting on the internet is like dating that girl down the block with the questionable morals… you
ARE going to get a virus; the only question is how bad will it be and how easy will it be to get rid of,
will it simply require a shot or possibly a priest? There is no doubt that via the internet you can get a
whole plethora of useful information but there is also a whole lot of stuff that can land you in trouble
simply because Old Scratch lives in it. For those of you under the age of 35… Old Scratch is just a
metaphor for the devil.
There is a beautiful silence that follows a good snow. The silence sounds like the whole world has
been harnessed with a giant muffler. The usual road noise that goes on with everyday life is replaced
by an unusually quiet blanket of white fluffiness, that when hit just so by the sun, twinkles with all of
God’s glory. Isn’t it funny that something that is usually listed in the bad category can still be so full
Today I thank the good Lord for my home, my central heat, my fireplace and even after
it is all said and done… the snow. But most of all I thank him for my precious time to
enjoy the silence of life.

Pioneer School remembered
By Goldia Smith, Hydro
The above picture was taken in October, 1937, at the east side of Pioneer School, which was located at what is now Crow Roost at Fort Cobb
Lake. You can see the black cat Halloween decorations in the windows of the third grade. The foundation and water well are all that is left now.
These are across from the cemetery at Crow Roost. I attended Pioneer School from 1936-1938. We lived about one mile west of the school,
which would be in Fort Cobb Lake now.
The school had one large room divided by folding doors that made two rooms. The first through fourth grade were in one room and the fifth
through eighth grades were in the other. Mrs. Orville Hansen was the upper grades teacher and Ms. Clark taught the lower grades. A stage was
in the south end of the school for plays and Christmas with Santa Claus. We looked forward to the brown sacks of candy, nuts, an apple and
an orange, because we seldom got those things. We also had Box Suppers there to raise money.
A Box Supper was when ladies of the community would decorate boxes, put food inside and these would be auctioned off. No one was
supposed to know whose box they were getting and then they would eat supper with that person.
On each side of the stage were the rooms for our coats and such, called a “cloak room.” Our room was also used to cook beans or soup for
our lunch, which was served on a table on the stage. We got to help with this. A large coal stove sat in the center of each room to furnish the
heat. This was maintained by the teacher and the students.
On the last day of school, we would have a picnic and games. AND, I walked to school…

Hope & Tranquility
by Dr. Dixie Yoder
Not everyone exposed to porn becomes dependent, but because it profoundly affects the three
pleasure systems in the brain — arousal, satisfaction, and imagination—the percentages are very high.
Even those who view porn only occasionally, develop a toxic, disrespectful, dissatisfied view of women,
sex, marriage and children over time that retards development of normal relationships, even though a
family breakup may never happen.
Dr. Victor Cline, nationally renowned clinical psychologist specializing in sexual addiction, observes
that porn use and dependence undergoes four predictable phases:
1. Dependence, stemming from early and repeated exposure, is accompanied by increasing
episodes of masturbation.
2. Escalation, during which the porn user requires more frequent and graphic exposure to achieve
the same “highs”. He may also learn to prefer porn-induced masturbation to normal sexual intercourse.
3. Desensitization, during which the user increasingly views as “normal” what he once considered
repulsive or immoral.
4. Acting-out. In this phase, the user is at increased risk of moving from video screen to real life.
Strip-bars, offering lap dances and other physical interaction, are often a first step in acting-out. Next
steps include adultery, promiscuity, voyeurism, exhibitionism, group sex, rape, sexual cruelty and abuse,
and child molestation. Ted Bundy and Warren Jeffs are horrifying modern day examples of acting-out.
Porn use creates the destructive illusion that perverted, promiscuous sexual behavior is normal and
more common than it really is. The National Foundation for Family Research at University of Calgary
published 46 studies that clearly showed regular exposure to pornography increases the likelihood of
sexually deviant behavior. This behavior includes first intercourse at a younger age; excessive masturbation; and the increased belief that rapists are normal and that women cause rape—a myth deliberately
perpetuated through pornography. Porn is clearly associated with negative attitudes toward intimate
relationships; rejecting romance and courtship, and viewing persons as sexual objects to be used for
one’s own pleasure.
Satan’s intent is death and destruction. His wicked hatred of humanity drives the porn industry.
He floods our culture with images that arouse lust and selfishness, misusing the body and imagination
to produce its own addictive chemicals. Porn is a deliberately created bondage, designed to keep the
spiritually ignorant consumer coming back for more. Porn dependency, always driven by emotional
wounds, can be more difficult to break than cocaine use. Developing intimacy with our Heavenly
Father through salvation is the only permanent way to receive healing so that porn loses its power.
Jesus said, “When you continue in My word…then you are truly My disciples. Then you will
know the Truth, and the Truth will make you free...if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.
(John 8:31, 32, 36 NET)
Paul declared, “Christ has set us free to live a free life. Take your stand! Never again let anyone (or
anything) put a slave-harness on you. It’s absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Make
sure you don't use this freedom…to do whatever you want and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your
freedom to serve one another in love; that's how freedom grows…you know from your own experience
that there are so-called “freedoms” that destroy true freedom. Offer yourselves to sin… and it's your
last free act. But offer yourself to God’s ways and the freedom never ends. All your life you've let sin tell

Letter to Editor
TEXTING AND DRIVING WILL COST YOU
There are two bills in the House of Representatives that have passed recently.
The first is a Driving While Texting measure that increases the penalties of this dangerous behavior.
Although Driving While Texting laws are common throughout the country,
Oklahoma has always had a tendency to be very careful before adding more resrtictions on the public.
Although there is significant awareness of the dangers of this behavior, there is also resistance to overly
House Bill 1965 creates a $250 fine for a first offense and a $500 fine for a second offense. You can be
fined if you are already pulled over for a separate issue but cannot be pulled over simply for texting and
driving. The bill now heads to the Oklahoma Senate for consideration
. The second measure I want to tell you about creates Rural Opportunity Zones. It is modeled from
legislation in other states that have been effective in growing smaller rural communities. These zones are
Local Incentive Zones that reward out of state newcomers to rural Oklahoma communities with a fiveyear tax exemption.
This means that when communities want to recruit doctors, businesses and other individuals, they
can tout this incentive. A three year incentive might be considered before the bill gets out of the Senate.
I will keep you updated on the status of our great state.
