Last week Myrtle Edmond, Madge Gentry and the Pushmataha Historical Society received a rather surprising gift in the mail from Hon. Elton Gallegly, Congressman from California and former Antlers resident.
Three plaques commemorating the Historical Societyâ€™s hard work and dedication, which specifically mentioned Myrtle Edmond and Madge Gentry for the passion and professionalism they showed when the Congressman visited the Historical Society, with the speech that the Congressman gave in front of the House of Representatives on December 31, 2012 in the second session of the 112th Congress.
The Antlers Police Department Office Wyatt Williams responded to an assault call at Chilangoâ€™s Mexican Restaurant in Antlers after Julio Ceasar Castillo Andres, of Hugo, tried to stab a restaurant employee.
According to the police report, on January 12, 2013 at about 1:30 p.m., Andres came in the back door of the restaurant mad and pulled a knife from his waistband. After doing so he went after Jose Rojas and tried to stab him. According to Rojas, he tried to run around the kitchen to get away from Andres , going as far as moving a plate cart between them.
