Want to be the envy of your hunting buddies and fill your calendar with squirrel hunt bookings? Find and train a dog to tree squirrels and you’ll wear out your pencil jotting down hunting dates.
It’s too late this year to locate and train a dog to tree squirrels as season ended Thursday. However, it’s not too early to start thinking about picking out a pup for the future.
For Ruston’s George Seacrist, working with his squirrel dogs is a year round proposition. He raises his own squirrel dogs and begins some preliminaries with pups as young as a month old while they’re still in the kennel, deciding which ones of the litter will eventually be sniffing out and treeing squirrels.

For 85-year-old Bruce Allen (left) of Ruston, running is simply in the blood. In 1992, he and his grandson, then seven-year-old Daniel, ran in the Lincoln General Hospital 5-K. Several weeks ago, the elder Allen ran and walked in the “Love of Running” 5K hosted by the Danni Jones Physical Therapy, and he crossed the finish line with two-year-old great granddaughter Parker Lee (center) and five-year-old great grandson Jackson Lee.

Preparing for an Oklahoma retreat

Irby, Marna.jpg

I’m hoping good weather is on its way, because when you read this I’ll be culminating my trip to the Ardmore Mountains Retreat at Falls Creek Conference Center in Davis, Okla.

Housecleaning and purging the soul

in

Recently, I asked my dear friend, Beth, to help me redecorate and clean out the main living spaces in our home. I completely trust her, so I told her to have fun and do whatever she wanted, which included rearranging furniture and pictures, as well as clearing out unnecessary items and clutter. I was actually out of town at a retreat while she was being creative, so it was wonderfully fun for my husband, Michael, and our kids to come home every day to see what was changed, moved out or repurposed while they were at work and school! For starters, Beth removed everything, purging the space, so she could have a clean slate in order to see new possibilities for each room — including the kitchen, dining room and living room. She moved everything into the office and put lots of things away in boxes in case she could use them later or perhaps not use them at all.
