For Some Life Begins at Retirement

By Marshall Scott

A tear swelled in Patti Sparlin’s eye. As it began to trickle down her face, Sparlin said what she would miss most about being Madill’s Postmaster. “My customers,” she said. “If we can get somebody to take care of them, then I’m good. That’ll be the big thing. My employees will be fine; but my customers, I spoil them, bad.” Sparlin has been the Postmaster in Madill since February of 1993, and Thursday, June 30, will be her last day. She is retiring.

Madill Resident Inducted into Hall of Honor

By Marshall Scott 
The Madill Record 
 
Jim Matlack joined the National Guard in Madill straight out of high school in 1965. He went to his camps and training, but it wasn’t until 2003 (at the prime age of 56) that Matlack was finally deployed. “It was one of those things where at my age, I could have opted out of it; but I didn’t stay in that long not to go do my duty after training,” he said. “After all those years of getting ready to do something like that, I was not going to turn my back on my unit or my country; and I just felt like it was my patriotic duty to do it.”
