Third Thru Sixth Grade Teams
Ted, The CHS boys soccer team went to skiatook this saturday for a tournament. We beat skiatook 3-1 the first game. We tied miami 1-1 in the second game. The third game is where our own Peter Kolosha was injured while diving for a header near pryors goalie. When peter dove he hit the goalies knee and was knocked unconcious. The ambulance came and took him to Bailey Medical Center. He was released with just a moderate concussion but he has bruises on his cheek from the impact. The game was cancelled and so was our next one. If you could post this and let people know to pray for him and his family and hope that he doesnt have any brain problems occur. Best Regards, Ethan Carothers (Sat. 2/28/2009)

Hit & Run Update: When I first sent information about this wreck we thought that we knew that the car that ran was a Chevy because of a hub cap that was found at the scene. Well we were wrong, the hub cap belongs to our car, but we do know that the other car is a two door small car still possible with silver and red paint. We have taken our car to a local body shop with some parts that we do believe belong to the other car in hope that we can find the other car. So please if anyone knows anything we would greatly appreciate any help we can get. Again my number is 798-3037 or even email me Any information I receive I will pass on to police so that they can handle this properly. The girls returned to school today but are very sore and still very upset. They deserve some answers and we hope with everyone's help we can get them some. -- Thank you, Carolyn Jensen (2/26/2009)

Lost kitten -- Reward: She's been missing since January 31. She is 6 months old, not yet fixed (her appointment is in a week). She is a bobtail, mostly black with a little orange, and she has a circular striping pattern on her body. She's very unique looking and very friendly. She goes inside and outside as she pleases, and she didn't come home. We live near the post office. It is possible that someone mistook her for a stray and took her home.
Call 740-3672 or 691-2767 ANY TIME. Her family
misses her. There is a reward! Any vet bills she might
have would also be repaid. --
Thank you, Susan (2/13/2009)
