Nearly 400 ranchers, farmers, legislators, community leaders, and other citizens aired their feelings about the new Maximum Annual Yield (MAY) ruling by the Oklahoma Water Resources Board. The meeting was held in the newly opened Chickasaw Nation Community Center on Ardmore’s north side.

It was another encouraging week for Sulphur softball, as the Lady Dogs finished 2-2 and came home from the Tishomingo tournament with a third place finish. The Lady Dogs beat Antlers 7-0 in the first round at Tish, before falling in the semifinals to Tish 7-4. Sulphur, however, rebounded with a win over Caddo 10-2 in the third place game.

Finally, Sulphur got to hit someone else. And the Bulldogs definitely took advantage of the opportunity. Sulphur traveled to Seminole last Friday evening for the first of two scrimmages against the Class 3A No. 4 Chieftains and the Dogs held their own. “I thought, overall, it went really well,” said Sulphur head coach Jim Dixon. “Our effort was great and I thought our kids really played hard. I was tickled with how we competed.”
