Santa Fe Trail Daze 2010

Santa Fe Trail Daze

Please help promote Santa Fe Trail Daze :

Thu June, 3rd – Sun June, 6th

The first weekend in June each year is Boise City’s Santa Fe Trail Daze, a celebration to rekindle the spirit of the Old West and remind children of their pioneer heritage.

During the four-day event, rodeos, roping, an old-timers’ coffee, dances, a parade, country-western entertainment, a sacred music program, stagecoach rides, flea market, flower show, church service, a quilt display, old-time fiddling, antique car show, competition for kids and adults, and many other activities are held. A World’s Champion Post Hole digging Contest is also featured every year. It has received national publicity.

On Friday of the celebration, places of historical interest are open during a bus tour to the public which are closed the remainder of the year. Many locations are on private land, which cannot be seen by the general public except at this time. The free bus tours are sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce – every effort is made to teach and entertain visitors.

A site which is of interest to many is a series of dinosaur tracks in a strata of solid rock in the bed of a creek. At times, following flood conditions the tracks are covered with several feet of silt. At other times, gushing torrents along the waterway uncover the tracks completely. Immediately before the annual Trail Daze event, the tracks are swept clear of debris.
Another place which is closed to the general public is Autograph Cliff, a watering and resting place along the old Santa Fe Trail. There are hundreds of signatures carved in the sandstone cliff, giving evidence to those hardy creatures who sought better lives for themselves by “moving on.”
Phone : 580-544-3344   (Always call and confirm events.)

Brazen Robber Threatens Bank, Schools

Here’s the News Channel 10′s Video of it.

by C.F. David

It was about 10:45 a.m. on Friday morning when as yet unidentified man, estimated to be in his early 30s handed a teller at The First State Bank of Boise City a note demanding money.

The note, as of yet unreleased, purportedly threatened to set off bombs in the bank and the Boise City Elementary and High Schools if the teller didn’t empty her money drawer. The teller complied and the man, visible on security cameras exited the bank.

He is then thought to have climbed into either a cream or off-white mini-van or small SUV, perhaps with Louisiana tags. The vehicle was driven away by a woman in her 30s reportedly wearing a pink blouse.

The direction of travel was thought to be east on Highway 412/3 toward Guymon. However, if the duo drove east they could have turned toward Stratford or angled toward Elkhart as well as traveled to Guymon. As of Saturday morning the area of search had been widened to a 500 mile radius.

Before leaving the bank he left what could have been an explosive device. The bank was evacuated.In reaction to the multiple threats the Boise City schools were also quickly evacuated, and the students taken to two safe locations; school was later dismissed. The schools in Felt were also reportedly evacuated and the Keyes school went into a lockdown mode.

Police Chief Dale Harper, Under Sheriff Derek Kincannon, and Patrolman Tonya Hicks quickly threw up crime scene tape around the building.

Harper then contacted OSBI Agent Morgan Wilkinson and calls also went out to the FBI in Woodward and Oklahoma City.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol Bomb Squad flew from Oklahoma City, and one trooper suited up and made multiple entries into the bank before making the decision that the device was not an explosive.

The two Boise City Schools were also cleared of explosives using bomb-sniffing dogs.

The robbery is similar to one executed in Noble, just south of Norman earlier this month. That robbery is also under investigation by the FBI and the couple is suspected of committing both robberies.

FBI News Release

For Immediate Release
February 26, 2010 FBI Oklahoma City
Contact: Special Agent Gary Johnson
(405) 290-3678

Robbery of First State Bank Branch in Boise City

Below are several photographs taken from today’s robbery of First State Bank, 20 Southwest Square, Boise City, Oklahoma.

At approximately 10:36 a.m. this morning, a white male entered the bank and provided a demand note to a teller. The robber said there was a bomb at a local school, and he set a device he described as a bomb on the teller counter. It was later proven to be a hoax device. There was nothing found at the school.

The robber gathered the money and fled with a white female in a white minivan or SUV. They were believed to have traveled east on Highway 412 from Boise City. No one was injured and no explosive devices were located. The same individual is believed responsible for the February 12, 2010, robbery of First Fidelity Bank, 900 N. Main Street, Noble, Oklahoma. In the February 12 robbery, the suspect was seen driving a maroon four-door car.

The individual who entered the bank was described as a white male, shoulder length brown hair, 5’9″, 170 lbs., in his mid 30′s, wearing a Aussie style hat with a leather band, a hip length black leather coat, a purplish-colored collared shirt, blue jeans, and black cowboy boots.

The female who remained in the car was described as a white female, heavy set, in her early 30′s, shoulder length light brown hair, who was wearing a pink shirt.

The investigation is being conducted by the FBI, Boise City Police Department, Cimmaron County Sheriff’s Office, the District 1 District Attorney’s Task Force, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. The FBI’s bomb technician was also on the scene to examine the device left at the bank.

If anyone has any information, please contact the FBI at (405) 290-7770 (24-hour number). A reward of up to $2000 is being offered by the Oklahoma Bankers Association.

Slinging a smooth stone

We’re not in Kansas, and the Wizard(s) seem to have Lied

Well unless you’ve been living under the proverbial rock, or perhaps the dome of lies and denial built by the real Chicken-Littles, i.e. Al Gore, Prince Charles, and two-thirds of Hollywierd, you might have discovered that perhaps we aren’t all doomed to annihilation by global warming after all. Who’d a thunk it?

Al has made his self much richer by touting global warming, (for one by investing in carbon trades, wait until those things go belly up), even after he was caught in (I believe) 2006 with an energy hog of a home with 10 bathrooms. (When busted, Al quickly retro-fitted his mansion with solar panels.) What a con man and hypocrite.

Our Military

usaThe average age of the military man is 19 years. He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country. He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father’s; but he has never collected unemployment either.

He’s a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when he left, or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away. He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and 155mm howitzer. He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk.

He has trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him, but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in less time in the dark. He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must. He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional. He can march until he is told to stop or stop until he is told to march.

He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation, but he is not without spirit or individual dignity. He is self-sufficient. He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other. He keeps his canteens full and his feet dry. He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never to clean his rifle. He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts. If you’re thirsty, he’ll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food.

He’ll even split his ammunition with you in the midst of battle when you run low. He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands. He can save your life – or take it, because that is his job. He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay and still find ironic humor in it all. He has seen more suffering and death then he should have in his short lifetime.

He has stood atop mountains of dead bodies, and helped to create them.He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed. He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to ‘square-away’ those around him who haven’t bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking.

In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful. Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, he is paying the price for our freedom. Beardless or not, he is not a boy. He is the American Fighting Man and Woman that has kept this country free for over 200 years. They have asked nothing in return, except our friendship and understanding.

Remember them, always, for they have earned our respect and admiration with their blood. And now we even have women over there in danger, doing their part in this tradition of going to War when our nation calls us to do so.

 

And if according to your will I lose my life, please bless with your protective hand my children and my wife.

Focus on the Goal

“Jelly fish”

All of the dives were beautiful; we explored dive spots such as, WHITE HOLE, which is called that because of the round patch of white sand that you see first at 35ft of water. But then you swim to the wall where it drops off and down to the sand slope at 100ft and beyond.  It was this dive that the waves were making the boat rock up and down and I lost my motion sickness patch.  Needless to say I jumped into the water really quick so I wouldn’t get sick.  It was on this dive that I went to a depth of 74ft.

MELISSA’S REEF was another dive where there were walls, reefs and some canyons in the shallows.  I spotted a rockfish and a trumpet fish.  It was an amazing place to see all kinds of sea life. I dove to a depth of 50ft.anifishbar
