Bible verse of the day:

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

–Deuteronomy 6:5

Several people have asked to have the daily verse sent by email and now that can be done. Sign up below the daily verse and we will email you the verse every day.

Today’s inspirational quote: “You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, love like you’ll never be hurt, sing like there’s nobody listening, and live like it’s heaven on earth.

William W. Purkey

Today’s really bad joke: What did the fish say when he ran into a wall? Dam.

The LeFlore County commissioners approved a close-out payment of $35,170 to Robinson Construction for work on the Conser Road project on Monday.

Newly-elected Congressional District 2 Rep. Josh Brecheen had a town meeting Monday afternoon at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Center.
