Patricia Gregory, Animal Control Officer, THANKS the citizens of Wilburton who have responded to her plea for assistance for bedding donations for the pound.  The animals currently being cared for at the pound include two puppies who appreciate the warm blanket to sleep on - especially with the change of weather last night.  HOWEVER: due to sanitation purposes, all material is destroyed every other day.  This creates a continual need during the winter months.  Therefore, Ms. Gregory is asking, AGAIN, for the residents of Wilburton to help her by putting those old blankets, pillows, sheets, curtains, etc., in a large garbage bag and dropping the bags off at the City Hall.   Your 4-legged friends say, "Thank You."

The Regional Champions Panola Academic Team won the Area Tournment on January 12th to qualify for one of the two available slots in the State Tournament on February 2, 2013.  The six-member team coached by Aaron Milligan and Brenda Reading are hard at work preparing for this opportunity to win this pretigious event.

Good Luck at State, Bearcats!!

The Higgins Fire Department officially closed down on Tuesday, Janaury 15, 2013, due to a lack of manpower.  "It's really dangerous to respond to a fire when there are only two fire fighters."  said Higgins Fire Chief Greg Baker.  After discussing with the Area Fire Coordinator for KEDDO, going to the people in the community asking for volunteers, and much soul searching, it was necessary to cease operation.  The community will be covered by the Hartshorne and the Veteran's Colony Fire Departments.
