Nice crowd of folks that saw the 2015 Cow Chip Throw and got to participate when a chip would come apart and shower folks with the pieces
 Saturday, April 18, 2015
Drew Russell, son of Brock Russell of Beaver, set a new Men's Throw record.

Here is his toss Saturday, April 18, 2015

188 feet six inches

It was a record setting week at the 2015 Cimarron Territory Celebration, which ended Saturday evening with the 46th annual World Cow Chip Throwing Contest and demolition derby.

Huge crowds - including 300 or more people to watch the chip throw - were present at every event during the week.

"The celebration went very well," Chamber of Commerce president Brandon Porter said. "We were really pleased with everything from start to finish. We canít express how much we appreciate our community for the support we get each and every year."

The 14-year-old menís world chip toss record was broken Saturday by a BHS alum - Drew Russell, who tossed his chip 188 feet, 6 inches. The old record was 185-5. Last yearís champion - Jon Elfers of Beaver finished in second place, while James Pratt was third. Elfers threw his chip 150-11 and Prattís toss was 102-9.

And, for the seventh straight year, Teri Welty of Laverne won the womenís title. She threw the chip 100-1 and beat multi-time champ Dana Valentine Martin, who was second. Savannah Tillman, also a BHS alum, was third with a toss of 80-1.

In the team competition, the Beaver Fire Department once again took the top honors, despite a small challenge from the KKBS Radio morning crew from Guymon, which finished in second place thanks to a pair of "ringers" in Welty and Martin. The Beaver firefighters combined for a distance of 354-9 with the KKBS group tossing 349-1 thanks to a pair of 100-foot tosses from the girls.

Placing third was a group of Beaver students - Tomas Konkel, Hunter Wilkerson, Ryder Linville and Jacob Hobgood - who tossed a total of 348-2.

In the VIP race, Liberal Mayor Joe Denoyer was first once again with a toss of 81-4 with State Representative Casey Murdock finishing second with a toss of 60-10.

Other results were not given.

 

Beaver County Sheriff's office rescue vehicle, It can be used to rescue someone injured at Beaver Dunes and then brought back and delivered to an ambulance. A Medlite Transport device to be installed in the vehicle was donated.
The vehicle was taken to the park and was able to travel all over the Dunes and is available to be used during a rescue. Friday, May 2, 2015.

 

Remembering Black Sunday

April 14, 1935

80 years ago today (Tuesday, April, 14, 2015) in the heart of the Dust Bowl a major dust storm pushed its way across the Oklahoma and Texas Panhandles.

This storm was dubbed ďBlack SundayĒ and took place on April 14, 1935. It was one of the worst dust storms in American history and caused immense economic and agricultural damage. It is estimated to have displaced 300 million tons of topsoil from the prairie area in the United States.

The ďblack blizzardĒ, or dust storm, hit the Oklahoma Panhandle and northwestern Oklahoma first on the afternoon of April 14. It then moved south, hitting Beaver, OK around 4:00 p.m., Boise City around 5:15 p.m. and Amarillo, TX at 7:20 p.m.

The storm was harsh due to the high winds that hit the area that day. Along with the drought, erosion, and the unanchored soil, the winds caused the dust to fly freely and at high speeds.

     "Pink out" week a smashing
      success, over $4,000 raised

      Beaver, Forgan STUCO groups give to four families. . .

During the annual "pink out" week last October, the Beaver and Forgan Student Councils combined to raise over $4.000 with the various events devoted to support those with cancer.

Events included t-shirt sales, the glow walk and the groups made various items for the auction that was held during the football game. Sponsors were Nancy McVay from Beaver and Tara Albert from Forgan.

"We want to give a huge thank you to the Beaver and Forgan communities for their generosity during our pink out week in October," McVay said. "Because of our great communities, Forgan and Beaverís STUCO raised over $4,000 that was given to four different families."

Last Tuesday, two of the families were awarded money. Mrs. Mary Tibbetts and Haley (Pierson) Nichols were both given checks to help with their battles. Also, money was given to Mary Martinez and Heath Thomas, who recently underwent a bone marrow transplant.

Mrs. McVay wanted to thank the following donors as well: Beaver Co. Memorial Hospital, Bank of Beaver, First Security Bank, Herald-Democrat, Bittersweet, Slatten Farms and Howard Drilling.

Lansden family celebrates

70th year of publishing paper

This month (October, 2014) marks the 70th anniversary Willis and Merlee Phelps Lansden took a "leap of faith" and bought the newspaper, The Herald-Democrat, from H. H. Hubbart in 1944.

At that time, the newspaper plant was located on Second Street where the Senior Citizens building is now. It moved to its present location on Douglas Street in March, 1966.

The newspaper has run continuously since the summer of 1887. The Territorial Advocate only published three or four issues before selling to George Payne. It was then sold to a J. C. Hodge, who changed the name of the paper of The Beaver Advocate.

It changed ownership and names until 1896 when it was under the banner of The Beaver Herald. The publisher added Miss Maude O. Thomas to his staff as associate editor, August 9, 1900. Miss Thomas took over ownership in 1902.

The Beaver County Democrat was established by W. B. Newman in 1906. Several years later, the new owner L. B. Tooker consolidated the newspaper with a number of papers throughout the county, which included The Forgan Enterprise, The LaKemp Mirror, the Ivanhoe News, The Beaver County Republican and The Farmerís News (Knowles).

It was then called The Democrat. The Gate Valley Star was later taken over by the Democrat in 1922. It was owned by A. W. Cox and A. L. Kimball by that time. In early editions there were word fights between the Beaver Herald by Miss Thomas and The Democrat by Mr. Kimball. The name calling wasnít too bad by todayís standards, nevertheless, it was probably interesting for the subscribers.

August 1, 1923 marked the purchase of the Beaver Herald from Maude O. Thomas by A. L. Kimball, to form the present Herald-Democrat with Kimball serving as editor and publisher. The Forgan Eagle was consolidated with The Herald-Democrat, February 1, 1927. The Herald-Democrat again changed ownership on May 16, 1938, when it was purchased by H. H. Hubbart.

In October, 1944, the late Willis and Merlee Phelps Lansden bought the newspaper. During these many years, the family has seen many changes in the publishing business, going from hand set type and printing the newspaper in-house to sending the pages to be printed to the printers via computer.

As World War II was still on-going in 1944, Willis was basically putting out each weekís edition single-handedly. He had an army cot set up in the supply room so he could get a few hours sleep before getting up and going back to work. He did have a linotype operator at that time...the only problem was that usually on Monday mornings Willis would have to go bail the man out of jail after a weekend of carousing.

The pages would be made up by hand then carried to the printer. The blank newsprint would be fed into the machine one page at a time, which would print four pages. Then the large pages would be flipped over and print four more pages on the other side. The pages would go through a folder and ready for addressing to the subscribers. It was a tedious project to publish a newspaper back in the day, but Willis loved every moment of it. (Maybe not so much when a paper would jam in the folder!)

The Herald-Democrat received state-wide recognition when, in 1963, Willis was selected to serve on the Oklahoma Press Association Board of Directors. He served as president of the association in 1969 and remained on the board in an advisory capacity until July of 1970.

He also was appointed to the Oklahoma Wildlife Commission by Gov. David Hall, where he also served as the chairman in 1974-75. Willis was instrumental in getting quail and pheasants back in Beaver County at that time.

He and his wife served the community and state faithfully and with distinction until their deaths in 1985 and 1986. Then their children, Joe, Cheley and Kathal took over the publication of the newspaper. In 1996, Cheley and Kathal sold their interest in the business to their brother, Joe and nephew, Brent, who have been serving this community since that time.

Throughout the years, many folks have been worked at the newspaper helping to get the editions out each week, including three more generations of Lansdens. Thatís 3,640 issues mailed throughout the United States to thousands of subscribers each week.

We are grateful to each and every one of our loyal friends and advertisers.

 

 

 

 


Almost completed going up

Wind farms to be constructed south of Bryan's corner 2015

 

Dear Joe,
It was nice to speak with you this morning.  Thanks for fielding the calls from various folks about the Plains & Eastern Clean Line.
As you mentioned, our website contains a lot of information about the project, including the status of the route and overall timeline
The Plains & Eastern Clean Line is undergoing an environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), led by the US Department of Energy (DOE) and in coordination with the Southwestern Power Administration.
No decisions have been made regarding the final location of a route.  In the first quarter of 2013, the DOE presented for public comment the Network of Potential Routes, a series of one-mile wide corridors.  Comments received by the DOE during their public scoping process will be used to modify and refine the Network of Potential Routes to routes that are approximately 1,000 feet wide. Clean Line anticipates that an applicant proposed route and alternative routes will be published in the fourth quarter of 2014, concurrent with the release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The DOE will hold public meetings following the release of the Draft EIS and solicit public comments. The DOE is expected to identify a preferred route for the project in 2015 with the release of the Final EIS. The actual easement required for the project is expected to be approximately 150 to 200 feet wide. Ultimately, the Plains & Eastern Clean Line will utilize only one route.
If the regulatory schedule continues as planned, the project could begin construction in 2016 and begin delivering electricity as early as 2018.
It is possible that wind farms could be developed in Texas, Beaver, and Cimarron counties in Oklahoma, as well as in the Texas Panhandle, to access the Plains & Eastern Clean Line transmission project to deliver their power to markets in Arkansas, Tennessee, and other states in the Mid-South and Southeast. 
The ultimate location and configuration of these wind farms wonít be known until the regulatory review for the project has been completed, and then all the commercial negotiations are completed.

Thanks again, and please feel free to reach out to me if you have any additional questions.
