Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for the hunting and fishing expo at the church. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15 per person. For more information, visit or call Courtney Cartwright at 302-1257.

Take your credit card to Arbuckle Lake

Fee machines at the Guy Sandy and Buckhorn boat ramps on Arbuckle Lake now only accept credit cards.

All boat ramp and campground fee machines at the lake will be replaced or modified to accept credit cards only in the near future.

Chickasaw National Recreation Area officials say the credit card machines are more reliable and will deter vandalism and theft.

Cards such as pre-paid Visa cards also can be used, said Dan Winings of the Chickasaw National Recreation Area.

Blue-green algae confirmed on Arbuckle Lake

Potentially harmful blue-green algae has been confirmed in remote areas of the Lake of the Arbuckles, according to Chickasaw National Recreation Area officials.

Blue-green algae can produce toxins that can cause humans and animals to become ill.

Boaters, swimmers and anglers at Arbuckle Lake are advised to be cautious and shower after having contact with the water.
