Eye Doctors Encourage Vision Exams for Young Students

As children across Oklahoma begin their school year, the Oklahoma Association of Optometric Physicians (OAOP) is encouraging parents to schedule vision exams to detect problems that can impact learning. Approximately one-in-four children has an undiagnosed vision problem, which can impact reading skills, classroom concentration and even lead to behavioral problems. Untreated vision conditions can also lead to frequent headaches and other physical symptoms.

Pediatric comprehensive vision screenings and prescriptions for glasses are covered under both Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act, making vision care for children more accessible than ever.

Murals are a Fleeting Art

By Linda Whalon
Madill Art Club Reporter

Once upon a time in a not too distant past there was a most beautiful and mystical painted mural living on the side of a building in Mannsville. This huge, colorful, expressive mural, by artist Dau-Law Taine, was a treat for the eye and soul. Whenever I entertained guests from out of the area, this stop was a must to share with them. We would stand in front of the mural for a picture together. It was my favorite “surprise” and always got the reaction I expected. “Wow!”

Madill Girls on the Run Finish Second Season

The Madill Elementary Girls on the Run Team will finish its second season on Friday, June 1, with the GOTR 5K & Glow Run in Ardmore. Third through fifth grade girls participating in the program spent 12 weeks learning how to effectively manage emotions, friendships, and adolescence while building physical stamina and training for a 5K. The 24-member team of girls enjoyed impacting their community by helping the school cleanup and replanting a flower bed on site. They also showed encouragement to the teachers by making special decorated pens that accompanied handwritten thank you notes. Because this after-school program has been such a huge success, Madill Elementary School has been chosen to be host to a brand new program for girls going into the third, fourth, or fifth grade. Camp GOTR will be held the week of June 25-29 for all rising third through fifth grade girls in Marshall County.
