Rep. McCall Reports On Legislative Session

by Mike West
The Sulphur Chamber of Commerce learned the results of the past state legislative term from District 22 Representative Charles McCall (R-Atoka) at their meeting Wednesday, June 24. The meeting room was filled nearly to capacity with board members and guests that day. Chamber Board President Wes Hilliard, who held the representative slot before McCall, got a big laugh when he was introducing McCall. He told the group “at the Capitol, there is a joke that the Senate is like a nursing home ... kind of dull. But the House is like a trailer park.”

Richardson signed with Arkansas Tech this past spring after a very solid sophomore season at MSC, which saw her finish second in the country in free throw attempts (250), eighth in the country in points scored (648) and finished with 204 3-pointers in her two-year career.

Ada Artist Demos Leather Working

by Jean Carr, Contributing Writer and
Artists of the Arbuckles member
Jim Weaver was the featured artist at the Artists of the Arbuckles business meeting on June 27. If you weren’t there, your loss is also our loss. Ours, because the group wants you to know what the Artists of the Arbuckles offers to the community. Jim, who demonstrated and discussed his works, is from Ada and is a well-known artist in the area of leather work...tooling, design, dying, composition and the history of this discipline. To see some of his work visit the Jean Carr Gallery in Sulphur on Muskogee St. This exhibit varies from themed works...underground or geology-related subjects, to designs that stand alone for their beauty...and range from embossed leather bookmarks to various-sized wall-hangings.
