Health & Safety THE PERKINS JOURNAL, Thursday, October 22, 2009 - A5 lives un" With the 2009 campaign fully underway, Stillwater Area United Way is more thankful than ever for com- panies and individuals who annually show their passion and support by "LIVING UNITED." "Many people in our area are unaware of how much our local leaders have shaped how our United Way campaign runs each year," said Sheri Carter, Stillwater Area United Way Director. Carter says the Day of Caring is a perfect example. Many don't know that the idea for an annual campaign kickoff with hundreds of volunteers improving the community was sparked at the suggestion of Jerry Moeller, Stiltwater Medi- cal Center's Chief Execu- tive Officer. "Stillwater Medical Center and so many of their employees truly embrace United Way year after year," Carter said. "They are a great example others of how to LIVE UNITED," Carter said. "The employees of Still- water Medical Center not only contribute to United Way through donations, but they also give man hours to make the special events we host possible," Moeller said. "We have a silent auc- tion, bake sale, sell pizza by the slice and provide park- ing for Homecoming, all of which is made possible by the employees." In addition, Stillwater Medical Center annually sponsors the cost of the materials for Day of Caring projects. This year's mate- rials totaled more than $5,000. The Juke Joint Jog hosted by Stan Clark Com-" panies is another United Way fundraising event supported annually by Still- water Medical Center. Each year the hospital sponsors the Juke Joint Jog's Family Fun Zone, providing inflat- ables and entertainment for children. "The needs are greater than ever in our community, and we need to help support those who are hurting," said Moeller. "With the current recession, now is a great time for companies to step up and support United Way." ,'Stillwater Area United Way is very fortunate to have the support of Still- water Medical Center and other local companies, who not only donate financial support, but also provide volunteers who give their time, talents and services for our community," Carter said.

Johnny William Odle Jr., 34, who was jailed for a week in Payne County on $10,000 bond, was released two weeks ago when his bail was reduced to a personal recognizance bond, court records show. Odle was ordered to return to Payne County District Court on Nov. 9 when he can ask for a preliminary hear- ing on his heroin possession felony charge, which carries as much as a 10-year prison term and $10,000 fine on conviction. If convicted of a misde- meanor count of possession of a syringe and spoon as drug paraphernalia in Payne County, Odle could receive an additional one-year incar- ceration and $1,000 fine, court records show. Odle was arrested in the 2100 block ofE. 6th Avenue in Stillwater about 9 p.m. Sept. 30 on an outstanding Creek County bench warrant for his failure to appear in court in June for probation violations in a 2007 drug case, court records show. Stillwater Police Officer Andrew Wilson wrote in an affidavit "Subsequent to the arrest, I discovered a black sock in Odle's left front pocket that contained a syringe, a spoon without the handle and a cellophane wrapper from a cigarette package. "I saw several small white flakes and a larger brown flake in the plastic. Odle claimed he had been shoot- ing up Oxycontin, but the flakes returned a positive result for heroin," in a field test kit, W'dson alleged in his affidavit. Odle has also been ordered to appear in the Bristow divi- sion of Creek County District Court on Oct. 30 regarding his probation violations in his 2007 drug case there, court records show.
