Patricia Menough in Elk City called to let me know they were targeted with the IRS scam via some messages on their answering machine. We agreed they sound very threatening and serious: Do not fall for it. Do not call back or give out any information. The IRS will not call you out of the blue; they will send a letter. You can go on-line and report to them the number the scam call came from.

Our condolences to the family of Marea Burkenbine who was killed in a car accident last week. Marea was the GEMS and GHS ticket-taker for sporting events for as long as I can remember. AAU basketball tournaments, high school and middle school volleyball, she was always there. In fact, I asked where she was two weeks ago when another lady was at her post at GHS one evening. I had a short conversation with her the night before her death and she gave me a good tip about taking a photo of my Booster discount card and keeping it on my phone. She will be missed.
