Anglers fish Sardis tournament

August 18, 2011

Members of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club held a bass tournament on August 13, at Sardis Lake. The temperature during the club’s last four bass tournaments had reached well above the one hundred-degree mark, but only reached into the upper nineties for this one. A welcomed change. The cooler temps, however, did not seem to make the bass want to bite anymore than when it was extremely hot. Only four anglers were able to catch two or more keeper bass.

A lot of changes have been taking place at Antlers Public Schools. They have not only welcomed a new Superintendent of schools but also a new head football coach onto their staff.

Local girls receive basketball awards

August 10, 2011

Two local student-athletes received rather special awards at week long basketball camp that they attended in Oklahoma City July 10th through the 15th. While at the Oklahoma Christian Cage Camp the girls practiced and learned new skills, participated in scrimmages and took on other teams from all over the state in games. On the last day of camp an awards ceremony was held for the 250 plus attendees who participated throughout the week.

Golf course to close

August 3, 2011

Antlers Springs Golf Course is closing.

I hate it but there is no other course of action. We barely make enough to mow, much less make improvements. Without local support we cannot continue.

There are few people coming into the game and many people giving it up for various reasons. I talk to people regularly who say that they haven’t played in a couple of years or more. These people used to play avidly.

Push County lost Nashoba Valley Golf Course a few years ago due to the same reasons. I know how Lee Helmke felt and it is not a good feeling.

Hugo Lake Bass Tournament

August 3, 2011

On July 30, members of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club competed in a bass tournament on Hugo Lake. Once again, temperatures reached above one hundred degrees. The extended heat wave we have been experiencing has caused the surface temperature of the lake water to reach the mid-nineties. This excessive warm water has apparently caused the bass to become sluggish and slowed the bite down considerably.
