Buncombe: Annual Baked Potato Pile-On Oct. 27

By Karen Wootton

Enough is enough with this rain! The lake is rising and will continue to do so for about another week after the rain stops. Please, be safe if you are boating. There is a lot of debris everywhere, some submerged and some on top.

Plus, there are numerous run-offs on the road, and we like having our Buncombe families safe. So, slow down and don’t drive through high water. The water is over the lower road at the marina, no parking is allowed down there.

Please park in the lot across from the marina office. Also, the fire ants are everywhere, and so are snakes.

Texoma Fire District: Ladies’ Auxiliary held Election for New Officers, Next Monthly Meeting Oct. 15

By Paula Zimmerman

Hello Texoma!

Wow, have we had the rain or what? It has been nice, but I think we have had enough for awhile. 3

The roads are still flooded in places and the rivers and the lake will still rise, so everyone be careful driving and as they say,“Turn Around, Don’t Drown.”

The Texoma District has been really quiet. The heavy rain has not permitted anyone to burn their piles of brush. But, it will stop soon and then it will be green and burning shouldn’t be a problem, just watch it carefully.

Buncombe: LTA Host To ‘Fiesta Trivia Cruise’ Oct. 11

By Karen Wootton

How about all this rain? We have gotten plenty, wouldn’t you say? I hope everyone is all right with no major flooding.

One thing to keep in mind is that the Red River and the Witchita River feed Lake Texoma, and it takes about a week to get here.

So we should see a rise in our lake, but hopefully not an extreme one. Fire ants and snakes are finding drier ground, so watch your step.

Museum Stories: Personal Reminiscence Of ‘The Days of Indian Territory’

By Britt Willis

It was in the year of 1857 that the Chickasaws decided they would prefer to establish their own government separate from the Choctaw Nation. Although they were perfectly willing to hold their own land in common for this privilege, the Chickasaws were willing to pay the sum of $550,000. This did not prohibit the Chickasaws and Choctaws from living in either territory if they desired.

After this agreement was consummated, a committee of Chickasaws and Choctaws met and designed the strip of country that was to be know as the Chickasaw Nation.

Buncombe: Buncombe Creek VFD Open House Oct. 13

By Karen Wootton

Hello Buncombe!

How about this weather? I’m enjoying it being a little cooler, but the humidity is about to do us allergy sufferers in.

How about the beautiful green grass in September? Now that’s nice.

I believe everyone is a little tired of mowing every other day. Fishing has been great and that’s always a plus.
