Benefit garage/bake sale set Friday and Saturday

A benefit garage and bake sale is set for Fri., Oct. 18 and Sat., Oct. 19, beginning at 8:00 a.m., according to Stacy Elmore.

Mr. Wescott has Medicare, but it doesn’t cover all of the medical bills that have been incurred. Also, Ms. Wescott has not been able to work very much, so bills are mounting.

There will be delicious baked good, furniture, DVDs, clothing for children and adults, home decor, and a little bit of everything. 

Donations of baked good and garage sale items – and money – are certainly appreciated.

Seniors may earn extra income

Local senior citizens may now earn a little extra money through a program offered by Delta Community Action Foundation, according to a news release.
The Delta Foster Grandparent Program provides a way for volunteers age 55 and over to stay active by serving children and youth in their communities. Volunteers may earn a stipend (non-taxable) that is intended to enable persons to volunteer their skills and abilities at no cost to themselves.

Volunteers may also receive reimbursement on mileage to and from school. It is an excellent opportunity for seniors living on a fixed income to receive extra revenue while giving back to their communities.

The Foster Grandparent Program has been in existence for almost 60 years. Volunteers serve at thousands of local schools and organizations that:

• Help children learn to read, and provide one-on-one tutoring

• Mentor troubled teenagers and young mothers

• Care for premature infants or children with disabilities

• Help children who have been abused or neglected

The Delta Foster Grandparent Program serves 11 counties in Southern Oklahoma and is funded through the Corporation for National and Community Service and local donations. Those who are 55 or older and interested in volunteering with children are asked to call the Delta Community Action office at 580-255-3222 or 405-756-1100. deltacommunityaction.org

Questions may be directed to the McClain County Election Board Secretary, Karen Haley, at 405-527-3121. The McClain County Election Board office is in Room 101, at 121 N. 2nd Ave. in Purcell (inside the McClain County Courthouse). 

Voters should apply early for absentee ballots

Voters in McClain County who want to have absentee ballots mailed to them for the Tues., Nov. 12 McClain County Election, should apply now, according to the Oklahoma State Election Board. 

Although the County Election Board can accept applications for absentee ballots until 5:00 p.m. on Wed., Nov. 6, voters who want to vote by absentee ballot are urged to apply early.  

Absentee ballot application forms are available at the McClain County Election Board office, located at 121 N. 2nd Ave. in Purcell. An online version of the form can be filled out and submitted electronically at: http://www.elections.ok.gov. A print form can also be downloaded at that address.

At least two mail transactions must be made. The County Election Board must mail the ballots to the voter and the voter must return the voted ballots by mail. Ballots must be in the hands of County Election Board officials by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day to be counted.

Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot in any election in which he/she is eligible to vote. However, a voter must be registered and reside at an address within the geographical boundaries of a school district or a municipality to be eligible to vote in school district or municipal elections. It is not necessary to give a reason for voting absentee. While anyone can vote absentee without giving a reason, the law still provides several advantages to absentee voters in some categories. 

By stating one of the following reasons on their applications, absentee voters can activate special conditions that make it easier for them to use absentee ballots. The reasons are:

• Voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended may vote absentee. They may apply only by mail, by fax, by email, online or via an agent who is at least 16 years of age and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to any person whose name appears on the ballot.

• Voters who are confined to nursing homes in the county may vote absentee. An Absentee Voting Board actually goes to the nursing home a few days before the election, sets up a small polling place and allows these persons to vote under circumstances similar to those at a regular precinct polling place. They may apply only by mail, by fax, by email, online or via an agent who is at least 16 years of age and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to any person whose name appears on the ballot..

• Military personnel and residents of the county living overseas and the spouses and dependents of each group are eligible receive absentee ballots. These voters may apply only by mail, fax, or by email. Military personnel should contact the Voting Service Officers in their units for application forms and additional information or visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program website (www.fvap.gov/oklahoma) for more information and instructions. Residents of Oklahoma living overseas can obtain the same materials from any United States military installation and from United States Embassies and Consulates as well as on the FVAP website. 

Questions may be directed to the McClain County Election Board Secretary, Karen Haley, at 405-527-3121. The McClain County Election Board office is in Room 101, at 121 N. 2nd Ave. in Purcell (inside the McClain County Courthouse).

The County Election Board responds in writing to every person who submits an application for voter registration.

Any person who has submitted a voter registration application and who has not received a response within 30 days should contact the County Election Board office.

Gary’s sister, Ursula Pohl (deceased September, 2006), handled the ad designing, and the Smith’s daughter, Holly, helped with the mailing. It was, and still is, a family operation.  

Gary (deceased April, 2017) and Harriet (deceased March, 2019) turned the operation over to their daughter, Holly and her husband, William, in 2003. Also, Mona Taylor, Jessica Gray, AJ Byrum, Tylar Mitchell, and Leland Taylor help get the popular publication out to folks in Lindsay, Maysville, Bradley, Alex, and Dibble on schedule. 

The popular publication has the largest circulation of any weekly mailed publication in Oklahoma. Factual circulation information is growing more important almost daily and the Belknaps welcome every opportunity to compare circulation information with other publications. Besides serving the advertising needs of most of the area businesses, the Shopper also offers non-commercial want-ads called Shopper Toppers, News Notes of upcoming events of general interest, Business Briefs, Who’s Where in Uniform, and publish area obituaries. As has become customary, we’d like to thank those folks who came on board that first publication – many of whom are still with us – • Standridge Hardware and John Deere, Inc. • Geffre’s • Doil King’s Swap Shop Home Furnishings • Jean’s Shu Shack • Ursula Pohl’s Fuller Brush • Goodner’s Discount Foods • Henderson T.V. and Appliance • Freeman Chevrolet, Buick, Pontiac • Vic Cacy Motor Co. • Lindsay Builder’s Supply • Ernie Philpott Realty, Inc. • Williamson’s  • First National Bank.

Garvin County Health Dept. offers FREE flu shots

The Garvin County Health Dept. will offer a FREE drive-thru clinic on Fri., Nov. 8 from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the Lindsay Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Station, located at 110 W. Creek in Lindsay, acording to Kevin Caldwell.

Flu shots will be provided at no cost to recipients, courtesy of the Garvin County Health Department and the Chickasaw Nation.

Flu vaccination is recommended each year for everyone six months of age and older. When more people are vaccinated against the flu, there is less opportunity for flu to spread in families, schools and communities. Also, a yearly flu shot is needed because a person’s immune protection from being vaccinated decreases after a year, and yearly vaccination provides the best protection against the flu through the entire flu season. 

“We are encouraging everyone to get their flu vaccination, and we hope this effort to make it FREE to individuals will make it more accessible,” said Jackie Kanak, Regional Director for the Garvin County Health Department. “The last season was especially devastating, and we want to ensure that as many people as possible can receive the added protection that the flu vaccine provides.”

In addition to getting a flu shot, public health officials recommend the following prevention tips:

• Adopt a healthy lifestyle by eating nutritious foods, exercising regularly, and getting a full night’s rest. • Wash hands frequently using soap and water, or alcohol-based products such as hand gels when hands are not visibly soiled. • Use tissues to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of them and wash your hands immediately. When tissues are not readily available, cough into your sleeve, not your hands. • Stay home from work, school and other public places when feeling ill.

Those who would like further information may contact the Garvin County Health Dept. at 405-238-7346.
