More Gold For Price

With a first place finish in the 800 meter run at the Meet of Champions held on May 15, Berkley Price secured her place in Oklahoma Track history, bringing home her 19th gold medal. She has also been named Oklahoma Female Athlete of the Year by the Oklahoma Coaches Association (OCA).

“This is an amazing honor for Berkley,” said Cordell Head Coach Jana Rogers.

“The award goes to only one girl from all sports in all classes. I can’t really say I am surprised, though. Nobody else could, or ever has, put together a high school athletic resume like Berkley has done.” She continued, “It is hard to say how awesome it is to have our athlete win this award, and Berkley deserves it. I have watched her over the last seven years and can honestly say I have never seen anyone train like she does, always going above and beyond. She is so self-disciplined. It has been a privilege to be a part of her high school athletic career and this is definitely a well-deserved honor

Holt Farm Receives Centennial Designation

The Gibson Holt farm in the vicinity of Cloud Chief was recently designated as an Oklahoma Centennial Farm.

Members of the Holt family have grown wheat and raised cattle since grandfather Gibson Holt settled the land in 1917.

In 1899, Noah Gibson “Gib” Holt moved with his young wife, Josephine, to Cloud Chief, which was then Indian Territory.

He and “Josie” traveled in a covered wagon which contained all of their possessions. They had some cattle and horses with them as well.

Cordell Council Votes To Change Police Chief/City Marshal Ordinance

In what would seem to be in direct opposition of the will of many, if not most, Cordell residents, their elected representatives voted Monday night to change the ordinance concerning the Cordell Police Chief and City Marshal positions.

Before the vote at the May 7, 2018, meeting, City Code 1-7-1-4-B stated the individual who was elected as City Marshal would also serve as the Police Chief.

The new Ordinance states the individual elected “may” serve as the Chief of Police.

He must first, however, be appointed by the mayor and confirmed by the City Council.

Mayor Bob Plummer has been actively pursuing such a change since shortly after his election.

Price Brings Home The Gold Again..And Again... And Again

Only a very few high school athletes know what it is like to be a State Champion.

Even fewer can claim to have won two State Championships. And only the very elite athletes have won more than, say, five State Championships.

Cordell’s Berkley Price, however, has - count them - 15 State Championships.

That is enough championship rings for every finger on both hands plus enough left over to wear one on every toe of one foot!

Price claimed the final three championships of her outstanding high school career at the 2018 State Track meet last week.
