    In case you missed this in Sunday's paper ... HAUNTINGS IN GUTHRIE Jeff Provine is becoming Oklahoma’s foremost expert on ghosts. After going on European ghost tours in the mid-2000s, he came back to the Oklahoma and founded the University of Oklahoma Ghost Tour as a charity walk in 2009.  He published two books about ghosts. “Campus Ghosts of Norman” was followed last year by “Haunted Norman, Oklahoma.” Both are collections of stories about purported paranormal activities on the OU campus or in the surrounding city. Now he’s back with another book, co-authored by Tanya McCoy, one of the founders of the Oklahoma Paranormal Association.

  • Guthrie turning to running back committee

    Jacob Unruh | Updated: Fri, Aug 14, 2015

    It’s possible Guthrie no longer has the running back who can carry the ball 35 times per game, and head coach Kelly Beeby is preparing for that. The past few years Guthrie has featured talented running backs such as Kai Callins and Idae Alexander who could shoulder the load. At least to start this season, it appears a handful of players could shoulder the load in Guthrie’s run-first offense. “It’s a little different for us,” Beeby said. “We’re going to find out (what it’s like). The quarterback may have to run more and rely on the pass a little bit more on first down.” Beeby said senior Kevin Blue has the potential to become that main running back.

  • District 5A-2 preview: Deer Creek's defense looking to move forward

    BY JACOB UNRUH | Published: Fri, Aug 7, 2015

    Deer Creek watched almost helplessly in the first round of the playoffs last season as Del City quarterback Terry Wilson orchestrated a game-winning drive with 12 seconds remaining. The Antlers are using that final drive as motivation entering this season. “It is,” Deer Creek coach Grant Gower said about the motivation. “Our focus no matter when it is (in the game) is to go win the next game no matter who the opponent is. That’s probably in the back of their minds, but in reality it comes down to whoever the next opponent and we’ll get after whoever that is.” Deer Creek, which is vying for its second straight district title, returns eight starters on that defensive unit.

  • Puzzling area between Edmond, Guthrie illustrates one of many challenges facing earthquake experts

    BY COREY JONES, Tulsa World | Published: Mon, Aug 3, 2015

    A perplexing swath of land between Edmond and Guthrie illustrates one of many challenges scientists and industry experts face in better understanding connections between wastewater disposal and Oklahoma’s surge in seismicity. The area doesn’t have the high-volume, deep-injection wells the Oklahoma Corporation Commission is targeting as the most likely to induce earthquakes, according to spokesman Matt Skinner. Back-to-back weekends of “very strong seismic activity” in June helped prompt the commission to ask operators of three wells in the area to halt, as well as a fourth not to restart operations, Skinner said.
