We had a very nice Mother's Day. The daughter and family didn't get to come home, but Joel from Okmulgee came for the day. We were so glad to learn he had stopped smoking 'cold turkey' in January. Of course, his waistline was suffering, but he is going to Work doubly hard this summer to take it off. Got a call from Mildred Cash saying Memorial Day dinner will be served at the Senior Citizen Center from 11 until 2. So if you have guests coming for the day take them to the Center for lunch. --Yvonne CO--OP CELEBRATES 10th ANNIVERSARY Members of the Cimar- ran Valley Cooperative celebrated the organiza- tion's 10th anniversary meeting in the Cimarron Ballroom last Thursday. The guest speaker was Chuck Montgomery, a founder of the co-op who new works for the Wichita Bank for Cooperatives. Mon- tgomery cited the local leadership as the reason the co-op has survived where others have failed. Members of the original Board of Directors for the co-op were Wayne Allen, Tony Dean, Jack Downey, Raymond Kinzie and Jerry Sadler. Current Board members are Alan Cun- diff, Dennis Kastl, Ran- dall Miller, Pete Schroeder and Bob Sim- ma. Cundiff was re- elected to the board at Thursday's meeting. Also at the Thursday meeting, the board revis- ed its by-laws. George Hulver of the Oklahoma Cooperative Grain Dealers worked with the board in revising the organization's original by-laws. .V" ....

Production of fish in a caged culture provides: 1. High quality food for the family. 2. An additional source of income through marketing. With the Langeton trio of Ken Williams, Donald Schwartz and Glen jects will be undertaken this month, and about $300 million this year. These projects will be funded with state and federal dollars, with the latter being the greater portion. But, the federal mat- ching funds could not have been captured for us in Oklahoma for road pro- jects without the passage, earlier this year, of the The Per]kiu Jourmil ardent fly.aster before that but learned a great deal more at the school.

The meeting commences at 7 and the public is invited. .O- RECOMMISSIONED Navy Seaman Recruit Troy C. Maxwell, son of Claude S. and Gertrude M. Maxwell of Route i, Perkins, Oklahoma, is a crewmember aboard the battleship USS Iowa, which was recently recommissioned in ceremonies at Ingalls Shipbuilding, Pascagoula, Miss. The present Iowa is the fourth ship to be named for the midwestern state. The first was retired in 1882. The second Iowa was commissioned in 1897. In 1898, it was 2.42 cents per gallon gasoline tax increase. The passage of that legislation will generate sufficient funds for us to project a contruction program of more than $300 million for the coming year, although even more federal dollars are available than we will be able to claim. I must agree with the Governor when he said this is one instance when Oklahomans will see as quickly as possible the results of their tax dollars at work. In supporting the fuel tax increase, I believed most of the citizens of our state wanted the services we are now able to provide with the additional funds--rehabilitation of dilapidated state bridges and roads, and construc- tion of new ones. I still believe that is true. Because of the addi- tional funds now available, an addition to the construction projects programmed for Payne County projects for June letting include: --an industrial road sur- facing west of Perkins on Knipe Street; --widening and resurfac- ing of State Highway 33 south of Stillwater bet- ween US 177 north and US 177 south; --street signals at the in- tersection of State Highway 51 and Jardot Road in Stillwater; Other projects of in- terest to Payne/Lincoln Counties: --the widening and reconstruction of Highway 33 west of Cushing is approximately 30 days fTOm right,)f-way acquisition and approx- imately 90 days from field activities. --the industrial access road to Fleetwood In- dustries in Cushing is 62 percent completed. --traffic signal work at the intersection of Highway 18 and Linwood Ave. in Cushing is about 15 percent completed {bids were opened January 27, 1984). --the resurfacing of 6.7 miles of Western Avenue in Stillwater was started March 6, 1984. Bids were let at $658,846{bids were opened November 22, 1983). --bids on the Coyle Road project in southeast Payne County were open- ed in September of last year. The project is estimated at $538,626. Work on the project was ordered in April, and will soon begin. --funds for the Lone Chimney Road bridge north of Glencoe have been approved by the Transportation Commis- sion and work on the bridge is pending county activity. None of these projects, nor those to come in the next year, would likely have been possible without the fuel tax in- crease and the support that increase by citizens of our district. I think it is fair to say that SENIOR CITIZEN NEWS BY Mildred Cash Due to the fact no plans have been made to serve a dinner on Memorial Day, the Senior Citizens are going to serve a lunch [Tom 11 o'clock until 2 o'clock. The Center will remain open all day. The menu will consist of Bar-B-Q sandwiches, ham sandwiches, potato chips, relish plate, pie or cake, and a drink. Price for adults is $3.00, children under twelve are $2.00. We are asking that anyone who would like to help us by donating pies or cakes to please contact Mable CaldwelL telephone 547-5035 or Mildred Cash 547-2934. There is plenty of room for people to sit around and visit, play cards, play dominoes or pool. Forty-nine attended pot luck dinner Wednesday. Quite a lot of work was done on Maybelle White's quilt. It has different kinds of birds on it and they are solid embroidery. We wish to extend our condolence to the relatives of Mrs. Mark Bain. As usual we had a nice crowd for Monday night music. Lovell Wells and Doris Mansfield were hostesses. Out-of-state visitors were David Ham, Houston, Texas; Jane Laudenback, Portland, Oregon; Eddie and Nita Cowger, Ornsborough, Kentucky. It was so nice to see Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Cowger back after being away several months due to Mr. Cowger's health. There will be Gospel Singing at the Center on Thursday night, May 17th. Birthday dinner will be Friday, May 18th. -02 Newspapers are the number one advertising medium in the United States. Gebhart, assisted by OSU's O. Eugene Maughan and the Oklahoma Cooperative State Fishery Research Unit, results proved that this enterprise is prac- tical, profitable and feasible. While several methods of raising fish are known, cage culture is a practical and inexpensive one. Many water bodies can be utilized such as canals, pits, swamps, lakes, farm ponds, and reservoirs. The fish crop can be easi- ly and completely harvested by removing the cages from the water. The overall operation is relatively inexpensive if an existing body of water is used. Also home con- structed cages are less ex- pensive than purchased ones. Recently, Langston conducted a fish sale-- cage raised rainbow trout which sold foe $2 a pound not dressed:,' These~ fish had been placed in cages in a lake last fall when they were a few inches in size. Over a six months' period they grew in size to three-quarter pound average. Baked or [Tied, the rainbows had a delicious, fresh flavor. These fish were fed a protein diet. Since caged fish cannot forage for food in the pond, the mat- ter of feed is especially important. Water survival temperature for rainbow trout must be below 70 degrees. The exceedingly cold winter of 1983-84 was, no doubt, a plus for the growth and develop- ment of these fsh. Brother Joe Stum- baugh, a Stillwater minister, is an expert fly- caster fisherman.
