"Each sign is about $150,"

one will be encouraged to take out their phones and text OKPLEDGE to 46429 in order to pledge to not text and drive. State Sen. Don Barrington, a Republican from Lawton and chairman of the Senate Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee, did not hear a bill last year to outlaw texting while driving. He said there were other pressing issues before his committee last session and he could not give all bills a hearing. He also makes decisions based on the chances a bill has of moving all the way through the process. He said there are different

schools of thought about a state texting-while-driving law. "One is taking people's rights away from them," he said, adding that education is sometimes the better answer. "You can pass texting laws but some people are still going to text. The smart ones won't, but the sad part about that is some of the smart ones get banged up by the others:' Helping encourage students' families and friends, as well as the community, to attend the evening assembly Hackler and her stu-

dents have acquired donations from local businesses to give out as door prizes. "We're giving away a Samsung Tab 3," she said. "We're also having a drawing for one student to win a designated parking spot" The Leadership Class is also taking monetary donations to purchase Department of Transportation approved signs to put up around town. These signs will be visible reminders to drivers to put down their phones while behind the wheel.

Chris Deal, president, has encouraged Chamber members to take the pledge and help the DHS Leadership Class with awareness. "Anything to help, we will," said Deal_ "Texting and driving is a big killer, especially in young drivers, and if even one life can be saved through this campaign, it will have been a good effort." Barrington said the possibility of giving the issue a hearing before his committee in the next session if it is assigned to his committee might be better than last year.

Anderson said there will be some who can't make it to the Reunion because of other commitments, but the event promises plenty of big names if you love rodeo. Roy Burk and Charlie Heath are both slated as featured speakers. Heath is a cowboy poet who Anderson describes as "really good and entertaining." Heath has ties to Comanche and Bowie, Texas. Burk is from Duncan. "Howard Council, the saddlemaker (and artist) from Lawton will be there," Anderson said. An

art piece donated by Council at a fundraising auction last year brought $2,600. There will be another silent and a live auction held at this year's first Legends Reunion, with something for every pocketbook. Anderson said while the goal is to also raise funds to help cover the rodeo costs in October, the main thing is to bring cowboys and cowgirls together for a night of enjoyment "We have over 20 NFR past qualifiers who live around here. This may be a once in a lifetime opportunity to get to meet the rodeo legends of the world." Anderson said his trip to Fort Smith was one of the most memorable

events of his life. "I got to rub elbows with them. Some of those legends died shortly after that This may be a once in a lifetime opportunity to get to meet the rodeo legends of the world." Anderson said there isn't a solid financial goal set but they hope about 200 people attend. "We're hoping to begin a tradition of a cowboy reunion and recognize our sponsors for the Prairie Circuit Finals," Anderson said. "But we would like for everybody to have a good time." On the Legends list are some who are "in memory." The list includes Clyde Burk, Jiggs Burk, Dee Burk, Barry Burk, Blair

Burk, Roy Burk, Ote Berry Spud Duvall, Gary Ledford, Morris Ledford, Junior Garrison, Zane Tibbets, Greg Winham, Tom Walker, Willard Moody, Richard Stowers, Florence Youree, Sherry Combs (Johnson), Janae Ward (Massey), Missy Long, Carol Goostree, Kurt Goulding, Ryan Jarrett, Shawn Frey, Howard Council and Charles Pogue. "We take it for granted because we live here. But this is a chance to meet with them and get an autograph or picture with them." So far, they have about 100 people who are planning on attending, but Anderson said, anyone is welcome to attend. There
