Luther

Roadwork on Highway 66

Remember before the Oklahoma Legislature adjourned, and there was that flashing portable sign on the roadside on Highway 66 just east of town? You probably saw that sign that flashed something like “the road project was stalled because of a lack of state funding?” Apparently the money was freed up, because there’s a work zone,

Some charges dropped, some remain against Ron Henry

Exonerated. That’s the last word in the online court record for CF-2016-6934, the grand larceny and property theft charges filed against Luther Town Trustee Ron Henry almost a year ago in a property dispute with his neighbor. Those charges were dismissed Tuesday. However, Mr. Henry and his wife, Brenda, did not get the same result

Training up a Town Board

Luther Town Trustees took off from their day jobs and businesses to participate in required daylong training provided by the Oklahoma Municipal League. The four new Trustees heard presentations about budgeting, meeting decorum, employment issues and the Open Meetings law among other things. According to OML, state law requires each person elected for the first time to

Friday afternoon update

The on switch was flipped in Luther Friday about noon. Town Hall reopened, and before the coffee pot was set, Josephine’s had a full restaurant, with patrons ready for lunch. DJ’s BBQ also quickly opened. An OG&E spokesperson said that the utility has retained contract crews for line repair ahead of the next wave of

Remembering a Superintendent & a Cowboy

“Just call me Sheldon.” If you had ever asked Dr. Sheldon Buxton what you should call him, that’s what he likely would have said.

Town Meeting, no action

The new Luther Board of Trustees will meet Thursday evening in a Special Meeting. But they will take no votes. They will talk to each other, in an open forum, and hear from the public. Oklahoma Open Meetings laws prohibit a trustee from talking about town business with more than two trustees (they can speak with

Final Numbers

The outgoing Luther Town Trustees met Tuesday night in their final regular meeting. Mayor Cecilia Taft, and Trustees Birlene Langley, Carolyn Lawson and Andy McDaniels will leave office officially on Monday, April 17. There was apparently a couple of pages worth of agenda items for the board to consider before the agenda was published Monday, however, the

Route 66 and Luther

What do you think about the Mother Road? In my spare time (or when I should be doing laundry or selling ads), I’ve been looking up Route 66 groups on the internet –  the travel groups, the history groups and the associations. My interest is to see whether Luther is represented. I also want to

Rustic Farm is part of our Great State

Turn south on Luther Road at Hwy 66, also called Ash, go past the Sonic and the Feed Store, and turn west at DJ’s BBQ past the railroad tracks. Turn south at Josephine’s Cafe. That’s how you find Main Street. But if you stay on Ash, you’ll find other businesses too like the insurance agent and

Meek returns and other school board actions

The Luther School Board unanimously voted in Monday’s meeting to hire Shawn Meek, former Lions football coach, as the new middle school principal. He succeeds Principal Barry Gunn as he moves to superintendent. “We’re excited to be back,” Meek said as the room applauded his return. Meek returns to Luther after a one-year stint in
