A4 - THE PERKINS JOURNAL, Thursday, September 8, 2011 Opinions WETZEL ConUnued ~m Page A1 his wife, Payne County Sheriffs Deputy Paul Fox wrote in an affidavit. While enroute, the deputy was advised by a dispatcher that Wetzel's ex-wife had called and reported she vol- untarily left the residence due to Wetzel's being there when he was not supposed to be there, the affidavit alleged. When the deputy met her at a location about one- quarter of a mile south of the residence, she was driving the pickup in which Wetzel had claimed she was taken, the affidavit said. She told the deputy "she had not been taken against her will, that she left because Chris was at the residence," the affidavit said. The deputy then went to the residence where Wetzel was located, the affidavit said. Wetzel "stated that he was in fear for his wife because of who she was hanging around with," the affidavit said. "He again stated that she had left the residence not of her own free will," the affidavit said. Wetzel's ex-wife then told the deputy that she let him back into the residence after their divorce, so that they could try to work things out, the affidavit said. She had earlier said that he was not allowed there, so the deputy asked if she had divorce papers that he could look at, the affidavit said. "I was looking for a pos- sible court order removing him or her from the resi- dence," the deputy wrote in his affidavit when the dep- uty allegedly saw ammuni- tion in a closet beside the front door. "I looked in the closet and located a Mossburg .22 rifle with magazine and ammu- nition. I knew prior to my arrival at the residence that Mr. Wetzel was a convicted felon," the deputy wrote in his affidavit. After he was arrested for possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction, as Wetzel was being placed in the patrol car, "He stated that since he was going to jail, so was she," the affida- vit alleged. "He stated in front of myself and Deputy Edwards 'she and I have been getting high together. You want me to take you to it?'" the deputy alleged in his affidavit. "I stated that he was not going anywhere and he then informed me to 'look in the office behind the books on the bookshelf,'" the deputy alleged in his affidavit. Wetzel's ex-wife then gave the deputy permis- sion to look inside the house, where he found in the office behind books on the bookshelf two sandwich bags containing marijuana, the affidavit alleged. The deputy also found a marijuana pipe on the shelf, his affidavit alleged. "It should be noted that at no time in being in con- tact with Mr. Wetzel did he divulge the information until after he was placed under arrest, and at that time it was not divulged due to being questioned, but by a free and voluntary statement," the affidavit alleged.

The Pioneer Woman Muse- um's Rock and Roll Gal- lery, "Let's Have a Party," features Oklahoma women who have made a difference in the field of rockabilly and its move into rock and roll music, said museum director Jean Winchester. Clothes from the 1950s include a poodle skirt, che- nille robe and saddle shoes. Rockabilly represented "rebellion, sexuality and freedom for teenagers," said Winchester. Music influenced 1960s fashions, represented by a fringed vest, sequined mini-dress, bell bottom jeans, hot pants and knee-high boots. "During the 1980-1990 period, rock and roll music became ultra-inclusive," said Winchester. This is represented in the exhibit by PLATT Continued from Page A1 Frank Eaton and cowboy.

From 1990to 2010 alternative rock music emerged, leading to graphic t-shirts and black jeans, dis- played in the exhibit. The Oklahoma Ter- ritorial Museum's "History of Corsets" exhibit will showcase undergarments as symbols of growth in wom- en's history from the Middle Ages through the present, said Exhibit Designer Jen- nifer Lynch. "Clothing has always been used to illustrate social standing," said Lynch. "Cor- sets and any undergarments worn to hold and sculpt the torso into a desired shape were a staple of feminine fashion for centuries. Cor- sets also advertised posi- tive messages about status, self-discipline, beauty and sexuality." After World War I corsets no longer were fashionable in the wake of rising politi- cal and social equality for women, said Lynch. The exhibit, said Blackburn, will be open from Oct. 1 to May 31, 2012, as another significant Oklahoma His- torical Society interpreta- tion of how fashion reflects history. COYLE Continued from Page A1 gymnasium. The bond issue calls for an 8.5 percent increase in property taxes. For every $100 currently playing in property taxes, the bond issue will add $8.54 a year or 71 cents a month, For every $1,000 a patron is currently paying in property taxes, the bond issue will add $85.38 a year or $7.11 a month. Superintendent Josh Sumrall said recently the district's millage will still be less than any sur- rounding school district if the bond issue passes. The new gymnasium would more than triple the seating capacity of the existing facility. Sumrall said it would have 1,100 seats. It would also enable the dis- trict to host playoff games or maybe its own tourna- ment, which is something it can't do now. A tornado shelter/safe room for the school and Coyle and Langton communities will be constructed under one side of the gym. The new construction also allows for the addition of a music/band room too, The proposed football and softball fields will be regu- lation size and will give those programs their own "home field." The exist- ing gymnasium would be used for full time physical education classes for the elementary students. Sumrall is opening the many academic improve-
