it's a joke people....it's a joke....kinda like this blog...we're takin' a break from this joke of a blog to nowhere...we'll be back in about a week....unless one of us gets bored .....or something happens in Idabel...or one of us gets bored and makes something happen in Idabel.
They said Sarah Palin had somewhere between an 80 to 90 percent (depending on who's telling you) approval rating in Alaska as Governor. About a thousand Palin supporters showed up to hear her speak at the new Dena’ina Convention Center in downtown Anchorage. That same day well over 1400 showed up at the Alaska Women Reject Sarah Palin Rally. It was the biggest political rally in the history of Alaska.
Duh....where's the 80 to 90 percent?
Valliant Middle School athletes were falsely accused Thursday night of a theft of money from a Kingston student. An Oklahoma Highway Patrolman, allegedly acting upon a request from a Kingston police officer, stopped the Valliant school bus in Mead and made the bus return to the Kingston field. The bus and the players were searched and no stolen materials or cash was found. The amount of money said to be missing was about $20. Reportedly, a Kingston school official described the youth who made the accusation as a "trouble maker". The youth reportedly missed classes at Kingston Friday and hadn't been located. The claim was the cash was taken not from the dressing room where the Valliant players dress for the game, but from where the Kingston players dress. The incident was reported by KXII on the station's evening news. Although nothing was found to have been stolen, that fact was not reported. (not sure if reporter knew this or not, if reporter knew surely he would have reported it)
There's a lot more to this story but that pretty much sums it up. As a parent, this makes me mad, and if it were my kid I'd be even madder.
* The student making this accusation is a trouble maker.
*This matter should have been handled by the coaches.
*The Highway Patrolman used poor judgment in trying to stop a school bus full of kids on a busy highway and making it turn around.
*The students were falsely accused, received negative publicity from KXII, did not get home until after 1 a.m. and missed a scheduled dinner.
*IT WAS $20! How much gas was wasted in making them turn around?
*The cash was taken from the dressing room the Valliant players weren't even in.
*The police were called, the highway patrol was called, the bus was made to turn around, the bus and the kids were searched....for $20! What would they have done if it had been $200? Shoot first ask questions later?
As a parent I feel...The Valliant football players, the coaches, the bus driver and the parents all deserve an apology from the Kingston school, the Kingston police, the highway patrolman, the KXII reporter (if reporter knew the whole story and did not report it) and the student that made the accusation. And if it's proven this student lied, he needs to pay for the wasted gas!

Oh my gosh... the Chinese bought Idabel.
That is Chinese isn't it?
I think it is.
Read this in McCurtain Gazette-
The Idabel city council voted Tuesday and they authorize Mayor Jerry Shinn to seek bids on the property where the old S & H building had been located. Under the terms of the bid proposal, the successful bidder has to start construction on the site within a year after receiving the deed, and the building constructed has to have a brick facade and be compatible with the downtown aesthetics.
Bird types back to normal at Red Slough after Hurricane Gustav and Ike. Some 50 ducks were counted including 15 teal. Wading birds and marsh birds including egrets, herons, wood storks, spoonbills, rails, common moorhens, grebes, stilts, and anhingas accounted for about half of the 350 individuals listed in Surveyor Dave Arbour's weekly survey.

The McCain campaign’s Joe Pounder, crowed in his morning e-mail to reporters: “Did you catch Joe Biden saying this morning that their tax cut will allow Americans to buy a ‘toaster’? Nothing says a sound economic plan like ‘buying a toaster.’”
Officials say Oklahoma banks are solid
Bank failures are expected in several states, but Oklahoma Banking Commissioner Mick Thompson said state banks, for the most part, stayed away from the subprime mortgage market, blamed for much of the country's economic upheaval.
Widespread bank failures are expected in states like California, Florida and Nevada, stemming from bad loans and declines in the housing market. Housing prices are still climbing, however, in Oklahoma, which had its share of bank failures in the 1980s after oil prices plummeted.
Now, Thompson said, "Oklahoma banks are well capitalized and well managed and they were not involved in the subprime market to any degree.

Hell, let's pass a law that allows us to put the rape victim in town square and stone her while we're at it.
I am the only Republican on this blog. I have always been a Republican, but this ---this is enough to make me question my party's choice.
The more I learn about this woman--the less I want her and her lipstick in the White House.

But a girl can dream damn it!
Blogs of Note are:
Interesting and noteworthy Blogger-powered blogs, compiled by the Blogger Team. For historical context, see Concerning the Historie and Nature of Blogs of Note.
Like I said, a girl can dream.
Anyway, if your into this whole Obama/Palin ....sorry!...Obama/McCain for President thing. Then go check out http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/ It's Electoral Projections Done Right.
It's a really interesting and noteworthy blog that made the Blog of Notes...which this blog is not and we have no hopes of it ever being one.
*Ummm..I wonder if Blogger knows Blogger spell check says it spelled Historie wrong? Maybe if we tell them they'll make us a Blogs of Note.....cause like that's interesting and noteworthy isn't it? *
In local law enforcement activity, for the seventh time this year, the Idabel Sonic Drive-In was burglarized today. An employee arrived about 5:30a.m. today to find the front door broken and the safe missing. It wasn't known how much money was inside the safe.
No cameras or alarm were in operation at the time, police said.
* Now that's a surprise....they were only burglarized six times before. So they leave off the alarm and STILL have no bubba cam. Is there a Stupid Sonic of the year award?*
PTW: You guys ever heard of a bank?
