Hey Ted, didn’t know if you had heard, but my daughter Myranda called and told me Zach VanNatta broke his leg during soccer practice today.

Apologies: The www.cvilleok.com website was corrupted sometime Thursday afternoon (April 12th). I received a call from a viewer that their virus scan was flagging files after attempting to enter my website. I had a similar experience when I tested. I then blocked access to the site between 7 and 10 pm and have replaced any files that appeared corrupted. I restored the site at 10pm Thursday 4-12-2007. If you have any problem now please email me so I can investigate. -- Ted Wright -- [I would also like to hear of any problem encountered before the site was fixed. I can only assume someone or an automated attack targeted my site].
Saturday April 14: I suffered another attack this morning and hopefully have it repaired at 1:35pm Saturday afternoon.

Too cold & too wet -- I wimped out on the CHS varsity baseball game (Cards up 2-0 after 3 innings with Mannford) and then left the CHS girls soccer game (Lady Cards down 0-2 with 3 minutes left in 1st half with Claremore Sequoyah) as the rain started covering my camera. I will start working on the few photos I have and might venture back out for boys soccer if rain stops. Sorry again to the JV baseball team for my lack of coverage (so far). I hear the JV won at the Bixby tourney Thursday and return Friday. They were to play Mannford JV this evening but I'm not even heading out with the rain. -- Ted 6:45 Thursday. [7:15pm Thursday update ... it snowing now!] Snow seems to be stopped now -- 8:45pm 4/5/2007 -- Ted
Lost Camera: Tuesday I was at the Sr. Tea with Kaycee. I had her digital camera with me. When I got home later that day, I was not able to find it. I looked everywhere. Kaycee went back to the church and asked if they had seen it, but no one had. Would you please put a Lost notice on C-ville.com for me? The camera is small, it is a Casio, it was in a small gray case with a zippered top. The photos stored on the card were of Kaycee and her friends, basketball All Star game at Cleveland, and the Elite 8 program on March 28th, if anyone found this and maybe they don't know who it belongs to, please ask them to turn it in to the school, or someplace I can pick it up. Thanks -- Kim Donelson -- April 5, 2007
Scores from the CHS soccer games against Oologah Tuesday 4/3/2007: Girls lost 2-1 & Boys lost 4-1. Terrible officiating..and I’m not just saying that..ask anyone who was there! Let’s hope today’s games go better! -- Thanks, Tracey Jarrard
(Note: I normally would tone down or remove officiating comments, but I'll assume Tracey is willing to stand behind her statement and will treat this like an unedited "Letter To The Editor" -- Ted Wright 4/5/2007) Claremore Sequoyah will be here today at 5/7pm for soccer today. Mannford will be here for baseball today at 4pm.
