The daily blog 5-27-2021

Good morning and we would like to welcome you to the daily blog for May 27.

This is the 147th day of 2021 and there are 218 days left in the year.

That is our pool pictured above the blog. No real reason for the picture, aside from promising my fine readers a picture every day. I took this to send to Trish the Wife to show her how good the pool looked, despite the poopy weather.

It’s not like the pool has been used much as it is way too cold for my use. Khloe the Granddaughter is the only one who has swam. But at least it looks good for whenever we can use it.

Congratulations to Trish the Wife as this is her last real day of work before retirement. She has taught many a child over the years and we can only hope they overcame that. Har.

Today is paper day for the Heavener Ledger. Please pick one up at a local store, if you are not a subscriber. It’s worth every penny of the 75 cents. Honest. Lots of people say down memory lane is their favorite part of the paper and others said it was the guess who part.

A few months ago, we had a podcast and had started an online radio station. I shut them both down due to time restrains. I am thinking about the best way to go on this to go along with our video and live streams. If you have any suggestions or comments, hit me up.

These are some areas we are looking at as a way to diversify and bring in income to boost the newspaper, website and newsletter.

In news, Carl Albert State College is starting a cyber security program.

Another warm day for Thursday with (drum roll, please) more rain and storms expected later in the day and into the night. The weather goobers are saying there is a chance of some severe weather, although that might just be a way to lure you innocent people in to watch them.

Funeral services for Louise Pierce of Poteau are 11 a.m. Thursday at the Oakland Cemetery Pavilion in Poteau.

In other events today, the Poteau Kiwanis Club meets at noon at the Western Sizzlin’, Leadership LeFlore County graduation is at 4:30 p.m. at the Reynolds Center, Heavener VFW bingo is at 6 p.m. at the bingo hall in Heavener and the LeFlore County Republicans meet 6:30 p.m., also at the Sizz.

Funeral services for Lonnie McRay Sr. of Panama are 10 a.m. Friday at Evans Chapel of Memories in Poteau. Interment will follow at the Fairview Cemetery in Panama.

He passed away Tuesday and was born Feb. 11, 1957 in Poteau.

We thank all of you for taking the time to read our blog and just want to remind everybody, please help us reach our goal of getting to 1,000 subscribers to our newsletter, which only costs $5 per month, or for our e-edition, which is only $3 per month. Newspaper subscriptions are still welcome, but for our long-term survival, we need as much digital income as possible.

If you care to share (hey, I am a poet and didn’t know it!) any ideas or suggestions on how we can grow these subscribers let me know. If you would be kind and share the blog with friends, family members, etc., and ask for them to support us, that would be greatly appreciated. But ideas are welcome, also.

Thanks as always for reading and comments, ideas, suggestions or links to funny or informative videos.

You can also call (918) 653-2425 to subscribe and you will be one of our heroes.
