President Donald J. Trump has once again kept his promise to the American people by appointing a qualified justice who will defend the U.S. Constitution. I would like to thank Senator Jim Inhofe and Senator James Lankford for voting on behalf of the State of Oklahoma today to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. Throughout the confirmation process, Judge Barrett has proven her character, professionalism and legal expertise. I look forward to seeing her serve our country and faithfully uphold the rule of law as the newest Supreme Court justice.

Extreme winter weather can often bring with it power outages.

“In the event of a power outage, the basic guide for food safety of frozen food is whether or not the food still contains ice crystals. A full freezer should keep for about 48 hours. A half-full freezer is good for about 24 hours. One way to extend this time is by filling the empty space in the freezer with newspaper or blankets.” – Barbara Brown, Oklahoma State University Extension food specialist.

Boise City is seeing some snow falling there. These snow showers are right near the surface, so not even our radars are picking it up.

Be careful if you're traveling today. As you can see, the roads are snow and ice packed.

Good morning Cimarron County! It's a little chilly out as we start out our day. Don't let that keep you from dropping your unused, expired, and unwanted prescription medication off here with us for disposal.
Our lobby doors will be open all day long to accommodate drop-off in the secure dropbox.

According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs.

Saturday October 24th @ 7AM:

Here's the latest on the potential for wintry weather next week. We could get some at various times between Sunday night and Wednesday night, but we'll focus on Sunday night through Monday night for now as those are sooner in the future.

Sunday night, while many of us will miss out on precipitation, those that see it could see one or more of cold rain, freezing rain, snow, and sleet, except for the northwestern Oklahoma Panhandle, where snow looks to be dominant.

Monday, a few more of us should see precipitation compared to Sunday night, with the northwestern half of the Panhandles largely seeing snow, while the southeastern half could see one or more of snow, sleet, and freezing rain.

Precipitation chances increase for Monday night, with precipitation likely across the southern half of the Texas Panhandle. The south central and southeastern Texas Panhandle would see sleet and/or snow, while the remainder of the area would see snow as the dominant form of precipitation.

After posting 2 detailed comments and one with some pics of this construction project on the ODOT and BC News pages, ODOT sent this reply to me on their FB page. Notice they replied on Fri. and only an hour ago. [6:00 p.m.] so the office in Buffalo would be closed. I would encourage EVERYONE, especially business owners and residents along N Cimarron to call this number - 580-735-2561. DON'T WAIT - Call Monday morning, June 22nd. Also, go create a post on Oklahoma Department of Transportation page, even if it's a short one. If you don't want your Utility Bill to go up, please call City Hall - 544-2271 and explain that we don't need 108 light poles. If you haven't seen where all these are located, park and walk along N Cimarron. 80% of these need to be removed. Oklahoma Department of Transportation Oklahoma Department of Transportation Hi Bonnie, Thanks again for sharing your frustrations with the ongoing project. We’ve passed these along to the resident engineer over the project to address. You’re welcome to call and discuss detailed issues with our Construction or Division Engineer in Buffalo at 580-735-2561. Some of your concerns, like the lighting for example will be addressed in partnership with the City. If any of the business owners have concerns of the construction currently underway impacting their business, they can reach out to our project engineer who will coordinate with the contractor in possibly addressing the concerns.
$10.8 million + Let that sink in. That's for ONE street and the area around the courthouse. We have residents of Boise City that live on dirt streets with no curb and gutters with very few street lights. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they had a paved street like some of you have? They've even take a patched paved street. For those of you that think this is going to be so wonderful - drive around town. Look at those streets, then explain to those residents that this is money well spent. What about a good dumpster? The bottoms are rusting out of many of the dumpsters or the lids are messed up and don't work properly. How about street signs and Stop or Yield signs at intersections, especially where there's been accidents? There's so many other ways that a project could have made our town better.
We will celebrate the life of Jere Lee Messersmith on Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at the Boise City Christian Church. Friends and family are welcome to attend. There will be a private burial of his ashes.
Our loved one, Jere Lee Messersmith, walked into the arms of Jesus on April 17, 2020. He was born in Keyes, Oklahoma on September 6, 1938. He attended Boise City Schools and graduated with the class of 1957. He married Barbara Parker on September 7, 1958 and they made their home in Boise City, Oklahoma. To this union was born Tanna, Sheri and Lisa. His memorial services are pending because we care for the safety of our friends and family in these current times. A date will be announced when we feel it is safe for all to travel.
To my Guymon friends, the Daily Herald, which is now being laid out and printed in Borger, had a huge error in today's editions in regards to this year's Pioneer Days Rodeo. The headline was COMPLETELY inaccurate. The rodeo, as all events at this time, is in limbo, and a decision will be made in a little more than two weeks from today about how best to approach it. Again, Pioneer Days Rodeo is NOT canceled. See this story and share the hell out of it.
