WHAT HAPPENED
TO THE PAPER?!
Tuesday afternoon we
got some bad news
from the Sapulpa Daily
Herald, which prints The
Bigheart TImes. The
press was down, and
would be unable to print
in color. Liking a little
color in our lives, we
opted to have the paper
printed at the Claremore
Daily Progress,
whose publisher, Bailey
Dabney, was very kind to
make the arrangements
on very short notice. The
change meant, however,
that we had to change
the dimensions of the
paper to match the
press. Hence the skinnier
paper, and, on some
pages that we did not
competely resize, more
white space.
Hulah volunteer firefighters found the home of Emmet and Mary Jo Hallagin fully involved when they arrived
Saturday afternoon. They called in Boulanger firefighters to help with a tanker and other equipment.

She said that she called
him Friday morning and

After a closed-door
session the Skiatook
Board of Trustees
emerged tight-lipped
and voted unanimously
not to renew Town
Coordinator Martin
Tucker’s contract with
the city.
Tucker, who has been
a city employee for 10
years, and the city will
have to choose whether
or not to continue his
employee as a noncontract
employee after
the contract ends June
30.
“He’ll have to make a
decision on whether he
wants to work without
a contract,” Trustee
Debbie Cook said.
Tucker has been the
town coordinator for
eight years, only two as
a contract employee,
and was a capital project
manager with the town
for two years before
being town coordinator.
During the Feb. 10
trustees meeting, a few
residents were irked by
the fact they were not
able to publicly discuss
Tucker’s contract.
Mayor Josh Brown said
the town’s lawyer, Joel
Barnaby, had advised
the board not to allow
residents to single
out one employee in
a potential bashing
fest that could lead to
a lawsuit. Others, like
Skiatook resident and
doctor, Vic Waters,
argued that discussing
employment matters,
especially of a public
figure, in executive
session is permitted but
not mandatory.
The trustees opted
to use executive session
Tuesday night.
The town
coordinator, fire chief,
and police chief all have
contracts with the city
that are set to end on
June 30.

Kidnapping
Stanley Ernest
Posey III, 22, and
Travis Bragg, 21,
Barnsdall:
Kidnapping,
first
degree
burglary,
using a
gun in
commission
of
a felony.
Sheriff’s
investigator
Loren
Vaughn
is called out to investigate
a report of a
kidnapping at gunpoint
on N. 124th
West Avenue in Skiatook
on Jan. 27. He
talks to two men who
say that one is dating
the defendant’s ex
girlfriend, at whose
house they were
playing video games
on Jan. 24. Between
midnight at 2 a.m.,
someone with Posey
tattooed on his neck
and a gun in his hand
kicked in the front
door. The burglar
asked the identity of
the two occupants,
looking for the one
who was dating the
girl, and fearing for
his life the man he
is looking for says
that guy just left. The
burglar then takes a
photo of the tattoos
on the boyfriend and
sends it to his ex at
work to try to trick
her into identifying
which of the men is
her current beau. After
60 to 90 minutes,
he forces the two to
walk to a truck a mile
away and Travis Bragg
drives them around
for 45 minutes or so.
One of the captives
then fakes having a
panic attack and both
of the captives are
dumped out at the
Skiatook Post Office
and walk to the police
department to get
help. The ex girlfriend
says the defendant is
very jealous and that
they had a horrible
relationship for about
four or five years.

license on him and
gives him the name
of another guy from
Pawhuska but a birth
date different from
that guy’s. Couffer
can’t find a license
for the name and DOB
given and the driver
admits he lied and
says that guy is who
owned the van. He
says he lied because
his license is suspended,
which it is.

37, Sand Springs:
Larceny of an automobile.
Deputy
Investigator

investigates
the theft of a Pontiac
Grand Am that
is reported stolen on
Nov. 21. A woman has
had the car stored on
her property for more
than five years and it
turns up having been
sold to Yaffe Metals
in Sand Springs. Yaffe
produces records that
show the defendant
sold it the car. On Jan.
31, the defendant is
interviewed and says
that he made a friend

front door was left
unlocked by an employee
who did set the
alarm. As everyone is
getting ready to leave
Big Al’s, they notice a
guy walking by who
looks like the fellow
in the video, down to
the same Osage County
Jail shirt. He has
his hand inside his
shirt and Deputy David
Bradley tells him
to take it out but he
fails to do so so Bradley
pulls out a taser
and the guy takes
heed. The guy smells
of booze and he says
he has. He also says
he just wanted some
gas and cigarettes
and that he was stupid
to have taken the
cigarettes. En route

VIEWPOINTS
4 THE BIGHEART TIMES | THURSDAY, FEBURARY 9, 2012
Crooks and Liars Club
The Oklahoma Crooks and Liars Club, also
known as the Oklahoma Legislature, is at it
again.
Here are a couple of items on their agenda
which are sure to impact you and your family.
The first, from the legislature’s very own tax
reform task force, is the income tax proposal. If
you haven’t heard of it, you will soon.
The media will be hawking it and you’ll see
your state legislators on television, standing in
line to pat each other on the back.
Naturally the
proposal sounds like
the best thing since
the Ipod.
After all, who
in their right mind
would be opposed
to an income tax
reduction?
BY RON
HOLMES
But it should be
named the Oklahoma
Income Tax Shift Act.
While the proposal purports to lower
income taxes for Oklahomans what it really
does is lower income taxes for the richest
Oklahomans and raise it for almost every one
else.
It’s the old shell game again. What they
give with one hand they take away with the
other. While lowering the income tax rate
the proposal would also remove existing
exemptions and credits. The results is that 60
percent of Oklahomans, those at the bottom,
naturally, will pay more taxes.
For instance, a couple with two children
making under $25,000 will see an increase
of $647. As a matter of fact, any such couple
making $75,000 or less will see an increase.
Of course there are some winners under
the tax proposal. If you’re part of that lucky
1 percent making $357,400 or more you will
enjoy an average reduction of $2,833.
Here’s what the Oklahoma Policy Institute in
Tulsa has to say about the proposed “reform.”
“The most significant recommendation
was to cut the top income tax rate from 5.25
percent to 4.75 percent. This would be paid
for by eliminating numerous tax credits and
exemptions, including broad-based credits
going to hundreds of thousands of low and
moderate income Oklahomans. The child tax
credit, child care tax credit, earned income tax
credit, and sales tax relief credit are all slated
for elimination. The plan would also eliminate
the personal exemption for all Oklahoma
families.”
Kind of a reverse Robin Hood approach, rob
from the poor and give to the rich.
The other item is Oklahoma Senate bill
1742, filed earlier this month.
This bill would create the Oklahoma Science
Education Act, purportedly for “...promoting
critical thinking; allowing for open discussion
of scientific theories; directing teachers to
teach certain material; allowing supplemental
material to be taught; prohibiting the
promotion of a particular belief system....”
The bill is a thinly-veiled screed aimed at
denying not only evolution but climate change
as well. Further, it opens the door to teaching
any other hair-brained theory the religious
right comes up with.
Apparently some members of the religious
community are not content with attempting to
control our government, they want to define
science as well.
It’s not a new story. In the 1600s, the Italian
physicist, astronomer and mathematician,
Galileo Galilei, published information on
heliocentrism (the fact that the earth revolves
around the sun).
He was tried by the Inquisition, found guilty
of heresy, tortured until he recanted, and spent
the rest of his life under house arrest.
So my question is, why don’t we just waterboard
the administrators and teachers who are
teaching things we don’t like? Wouldn’t it be
easier and cheaper than yet another law?
If you would like more information
regarding the upcoming tax legislation or the
Science Education Act, I suggest you visit the
excellent website OKpolicy.org. That’s where I
stole most of this information anyway.
I also suggest you write your legislators
regarding this upcoming legislation, but please
remember these correspondences can no
longer be processed unless accompanied by a
substantial check.

A graybeard at last, without whiskers
I came. I saw. I shaved.
This was after five weeks of trying to grow a
beard. You couldn’t really call it that, a beard. More
like a collection of facial hair, some here, some there
and none everywhere else.
If my beard were clothing, it’d be jeans with the
holes cut out. If my beard were a landmass, it’d be
the Galapagos Islands. My beard had more patches
than an Eagle Scout. More vacancies than the Bates
Motel. Hairy clouds against a flesh-colored sk-- Well.
You get the picture.
This, by the way, is why I never try a beard when
I have to see -- or be seen by -- other people. You
hate to enter a room and have everyone break out
laughing.
But I recently had this five-week absence to finish
a book, and I was holed up in
a room most of the day, and
the only people seeing me
were members of my family
and, let’s face it, you could
come downstairs in an clown
suit and your family would
say, “What’s for breakfast?”
So, alone in my cave, I
gave it a shot.
Again.
I have a history of doing
MITCH
ALBOM
this every few years. It goes back to the first time I
envisioned myself with facial hair.
In the seventh grade.
I thought it would be cool. I thought chicks would
dig me. Of course, back then, I was also hoping my
voice would change.
But all boys secretly imagine themselves with
a drooping Fu Manchu or fat sideburns. And so,
unable to actually sprout hair on my own, I took
a magic marker and drew a mustache over my lip.
Then I smeared it to make it more “natural,” which
left me looking like a girl who applied black lipstick
in the dark.
The next day, after a firm scolding from my
mother, and perhaps some turpentine, I was once
again “clean shaven.”
But my dream would not die.
Now, there are two types of teenage boys: Those
who grow five o’clock shadows by gym class, and
those who grow nothing but the occasional pimple. I
was the latter. I waited for facial hair. Nothing came.
I examined my ears, my chin, beneath my nose.
Hairless.
Soon the dream turned to envy. When Al Pacino
sported that mustache in “Serpico,” I wanted
one. When those guys in “Miami Vice” had that
sexy stubble, I wanted it. Burt Reynolds. Elvis.
Walt Frazier. They were always so cool with their
sideburns, Van Dykes, mustaches. Even today, from
Brad Pitt to that guy from “The Hangover” -- Bradley
Cooper -- I still look on jealously from the sidelines,
wistful for whiskers, my hirsute merely hearsay.
So last month, I braved the waters once again. I
stopped shaving. No one noticed for five days. Then
the occasional comments from family members,
which advanced from “Forgot your razor?” to “Going
grubby?” to, eventually, “Hey, what’s that on your
face?”
The hair grew in these places: chin, cheeks, upper
lip. The hair never grew in these places: sideburns,
jawline and the area that “connects” a mustache
with a goatee. I would press against the mirror,
looking for the smallest green shoots. Nothing.
What I did see, once the chin hair thickened out,
was this shocking development: It was coming in
gray!
How is that fair? I never got a young man’s beard,
and now I was Santa Claus?
I had been leapfrogged, left in a squat, like a
man who fell asleep in spring and woke up in fall,
his summer stolen. Even if I were successful in
my bearded efforts, I was now fated to be ... Sean
Connery.
Who -- I realized -- was bald.
So last week, with the book completed, I got
out the electric razor, the hand razor and some
shaving cream. I am happy to report that there was
some tug, it actually hurt a bit to cut it off. (Sweet
resistance! Proof of existence!)
The bad news is, losing it took all of three
minutes. And I was back to where I started.
And where I will remain. You have to count your
blessings, and the Lord has left me with hair on my
head if not on my face. Who knows? Maybe Sean
Connery would see me and say, “I want some of
that.”
So I am clean again. Resigned to smooth cheeks
and barren jaws. I came. I saw. I shaved.

Briefs
Cell tower to rise
U.S. Cellular is seeking an
agreement with the City of Pawhuska
to erect a 160-foot tall cell phone
tower on 21st Street near Lynn Road,
near the city water reservoir.
The amount the city would be
paid for the lease is not included in
a proposed contract that was given
to city councilors Monday night. The
term of the lease would be for five
years with five five-year options to
renew, bringing the total term of
the lease to 30 years. Each option to
renew would include a 10 percent
increase in the amount U.S. Cellular
would pay for the 0.15 acre parcel of
land.
The tower would be next to an
existing cell phone tower used by
another cell phone company.
Parking debated
The on-again, off-again debate
about parking enforcement in
downtown Pawhuska is back on
again after retail business owners
complained about officer workers
hogging parking spots on Kihekah and
other streets.
Police have not issued a single
parking ticket, said Chief Scott Laird,
but have been marking tires and
urging office workers to park in the
public lots available to them.
At Monday’s City Council meeting,
A.J. Hamilton, who lives downtown and
has two storefronts, asked if the city
could issue parking permits to people
who live downtown.
“I usual park in the pocket park
across the street, but there are times I
park in front,” Hamilton said. “I went
to the police station and asked about
it and they said that any time you get
a ticket just bring it down and we’ll
dismiss it.
“That seems like a lot of trouble.”
Many people also live in Easley’s
apartments on Kihekah, but Steve and
Debbie Easley have leased a parking
area for them, in part to avoid parking
issues downtown, said City manager
Paul McAlexander.
The council came up with no
solution to the matter but will take
it up at its next meeting. It might
issue parking stickers or hangtags
for downtown residents and business
owners.
Lights, action
The Oklahoma Municipal Power
Association wants to pony up
$600,000 to renovate two 50-year-old
generators at Pawhuska’s light plant
into compliance with federal emissions
laws, but Pawhuska is countering that
it might be better to spend $300,000
A woman from Phoenix was injured in a
rollover accident Saturday in Pawhuska and
had to be extricated from the Jeep she was
driving.
A Pawhuska Police report says that Tina Lenora
Priest, 48, suffered arm and leg injuries
in the crash at 9th and Lynn at 4:13 p.m.
Saturday.
Priest was driving north on Lynn when a Buick
driven by Kathleen D. Wolfe, 58, of Bartlesville
failed to yield from a stop sign on 9th
more and install a new generator.
OMPA will consider the proposal
within a week. City manager Paul
McAlexander said that OMPA would
finance the improvements it proposed
and that the city would foot the bill for
the $300,000 extra but OMPA would
also finance that part over five years.
The improvement would increase
reliability, efficiency and the longevity
of the light plant.
The plant is not powered up
that often but can generate enough
electricity to power Pawhuska in
the winter but falls short in the
summertime. In times of need, OMPA
can make money by selling the power
it generates. At one point, during
power outages in Chicago, electricity
was selling for $100 a kilowatt; it
costs about $10 to $15 a kilowatt
to produce electricity on the city’s
generators.
21st St redo
The Osage Nation is getting ready
to spend some big bucks to widen
21st Street in Pawhuska and install
curbs and gutters, City Manager Paul
McAlexander told the City Council on
Monday night.
The tribe, using federal money, is
going to improve the road from U.S.
60 to Indian Camp School and do
more work around Boundary, he said.
Tribal Transportation Director
R.J. Walker also said he would look
into helping the city with more road
2 hurt in rollover
and hit the left rear of the Jeep, causing it to
roll onto its side and slide into the parking
area at the Shamrock gas station across the
street from the Pawhuska Fire Department.
Priest and her passenger, Russell Brian
Langford, 51, of Pawhuska were both taken
to Pawhuska Hospital by the city ambulance
service, whose EMT Kathy Brown witnessed
the accident.
Wolfe was cited for failing to yield from a stop
sign.
improvements on the west side of
town in the future, McAlexander said.
Tribe willing to pay
The Osage Nation objects, in part,
to Wind Capital Group’s demand that
they pay certain expenses stemming
from litigation over the tribe’s effort to
stop an 8,500 acre wind farm west of
Pawhuska.
Wind Capital is asking that the tribe
pay $9,241for copying, court reporter
and other expenses it incurred fighting
a failed attempt by the tribe to have
an injunction issued to stop the wind
farm from being built because it would
interfere with oil exploration in the
Burbank Field.
On Feb. 2, the tribe disputed
some of the charges Wind Capital
is claiming, saying that $4,143 of
the charges are unauthorized under
federal court rules. The tribe says
that Wind Capital overcharged for
photocopies by more than 300 percent,
asking for 50 cents a page instead of
15 cents, the maximum allowed by
the court. It also disputed charges for
video depositions and transcripts that
were never used in court.
The tribe says that the appropriate
award of what it should pay the wind
developer is $5,097.
A hearing is set for on the matter
on March 6, delayed from January.
Skiatook P.D. minus 3
plus 1
Last week three Skiatook police
officers resigned. None of them
were asked to resign and none of
the resignations were performance
based, according to Police Chief John
Lawrence. Joel Eisenhauer, who had
been with the department since 2009,
left for a job at the U.S. Department
of Defense. Greg Shelton, who had
been an officer for less than a year,
went to work with his brother in the
Louisianna oil fields. Benjamin Dunn,
who had also been a Skiatook officer
since 2009, resigned for personal
reasons.
The police department has already
hired one replacedment. Johnny
Adams joined the Skiatook force from
the Osage County Sheriff’s office for
his first day last Wednesday. The
department is still looking to fill two
positions as soon as possible, Chief
Lawrence said. They are conducting
interviews this week and will continue
to do so until they are filled.

Door shut on Pulse
The Barnsdall City Council rebuffed Pulse EMS as
a suitor on Tuesday, voting unanimously to reject
the Pawhuska ambulance company’s offer to station
an ambulance in town in exchange for a $10 per
water meter fee.
There was almost no discussion about the
Pulse offer, though interest in the topic was keen,
drawing a crowd that included Barnsdall’s volunteer
emergency medical responders and even Skiatook
Fire Chief Dale Parrish.
Councilor Ahnawake Mashunkashey was the only
person to ask questions of Pulse, and she wanted
to know why, out of some 20 calls since October,
the local responders were not dispatched at least
13 times. Pulse spokesman Joe Weaver said that the
volunteers were not dispatched because the calls
did not involved serious injuries.
Weaver said that he was just trying to help
Barnsdall by getting an ambulance closer to town.
The rejection of the offer will lead to no change
in Barnsdall’s emergency medical service. Pulse will
still serve the city, it just won’t have an ambulance
based there as it had promised under the proposed
agreement.
Pulse has made a similar offer to the city of
Pawhuska, asking that the city turn over its new city
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2012 THE BIGHEART TIMES | 7
ambulances to Pulse in a $1 a year lease agreement.
The Pawhuska proposal also proposes a $5 a month
annual subscription rate for Pawhuskans , to hire all
Pawhuska City Ambulance employees, and that the
ambulance lease would be the only cost that the city
would have to bear.
The Pawhuska City Council was given the
proposal Monday night and seemed lukewarm but
will discuss it at its next meeting.
Love on the menu
The Annual Valentine’s Dinner Fundraiser for
the Altar Society will be Saturday at 6PM at the
Catholic Church Parish Hall. The dinner will include
homemade lasagna, bruschetta, salad, dessert and
wine in an intimate dining atmosphere. Reservations
are required. Call 918-287-3074.
BALES, FROM PAGE 1: ASSAULT ALLEGED
at the time, is believed to be the first person
convicted of felony manslaughter under a
statute that makes it illegal for a juvenile to
have any alcohol in his system while driving.
The jury recommended that he serve eight
years in prison for manslaughter. Oklahoma law
requires that he serve at least 85 percent of that
sentence.
Bales is to be formally sentenced March 30,
but was allowed to remain free on a $30,000 bail
after the jury delivered its verdict and while a
pre-sentence investigation was completed.
Unless he can post a stiff bail, he will now
await sentencing in jail.
TUCKER, FROM PAGE 1: ALSO UP FOR CONTRACT RENEWALS ARE THE POLICE AND FIRE CHIEFS
During the next meeting on Feb. 13, the
trustees will discuss the contract of Fire Chief
Dale Parrish in executive session. Police Chief
John Lawrence’s contract will be discussed
during Feb. 28’s meeting, also in executive
session.
Lawrence, who has been with the city for
five years this summer, earned 100 percent
support from the Skiatook Fraternal Order
of Police, with an 18-0 vote, last August,
according to a press release from the Town of
Skiatook.
“Chief Lawrence is an excellent steward
of the taxpayer’s money coming in at or
below his budget every year. He is tireless in
searching for and finding funds and donations
from the private sector and local tribes.
Skiatook can be proud of his efforts to get
the most out of every dollar he is provided,”
the release stated after listing improvements
Lawrence has made to the department.
Lawrence had no comment about the
upcoming discussion regarding his contract.
“Until they make a decision I have no
comment,” he said. “It would be pretty
premature for me to make a comment.”
Parrish, who has been the fire chief since
2009, was one of four finalist for chief’s
post at the Central Valley Fire District near
Yellowstone Park in Montana at the end of last
year. He also had no comment for the Bigheart
Times about the contract discussions.

As of January 1st, 2012 Wynona Animal Rescue, W.A.R. Inc.,
will be asking for donations or a drop off fee and a minimal
$25 adoption fee for some of our dogs. Operated by a veteran
with cancer, the charity accepts and appreciates donations.
Please don’t look upon this rescue as a place to dump your
dog. Make a donation at minimum – and that’s The Bigheart
Times talking.
Call Fred or Beverly at (918)846-2288, or Jenee at 918-846-
2417. You may also email them at wynonaanimalrescueinc@
gmail.com. They have many other animals, too.
