Cold weather can bring wind, snow and ice. But cold weather also might be the culprit behind power outages.
Sudden power outages can be inconvenient and troublesome. The potential danger of a power outage only escalates when one happens during the winter. It is relatively easy to recover from a short-term loss of power, but extensive power outages can compromise human health and safety.
During the County Commissioner meeting held on Monday, January 5, 2014, agenda numbers were skipped to accommodate the overflowing crowd present to hear the plans that Sheriff Duncan had made to be able to run his department until the end of the fiscal year.
The first item the board addressed was signing off on an overlay project, planned to start after April 2015, for Cloudy Road. This overlay would cover approximately 7.8 miles, starting at the Cloudy turnoff in Rattan.

If you have problems with wildlife causing damage to your property or even getting in your trash, you are in luck. Kiamichi Trapping and Wildlife Control Service is now open for business.
Animal damage is becoming a problem in many cities and towns because most have a no discharging of firearms within the city limits law. Because of this, wildlife have free range to cause all kinds of damage to peopleâ€™s property. The problem animals range from raccoons, opossums, squirrels, foxes, skunks, and armadillos, just to name a few.
