Stephens County Republicans prepare to fry fish by Wayne Watts  Local Republicans are baiting their hooks for the 17th Annual Fish Fry coming on May 22nd this year.  “We missed having this fantastic event last year,’ said GOP Chairman Leon Farris. “We expect a large turnout this year, matter of fact, we are way ahead in table sales, so we think we will have a sellout.”  Last year’s cancelled event was to feature Oklahoma’s Lt. Governor Matt Pinnell who has agreed to return for this year’s fish fry. Along with Pinnell will be Oklahoma’s U.S. Senator James Lankford.  “Both gentlemen will be on stage together and a discussion regarding State vs Federal rights and issues will be discussed,” according to Steve Fair, 4th District Chairman and local columnist.  Other dignitaries scheduled include recently elected State GOP Chairmann John Bennett, Fourth District Congressman Tom Cole and others.   The GOP Fish Fry fundraiser in Duncan is typically the largest gathering of Fish Fry attendees line up for hot fish, trimmings and political fun at a previous event.

Many of the communities affected by the winter storm, which dropped about 15 inches in Duncan with temperatures dipping below zero degrees, do not have open libraries, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Those living in the affected areas may apply for FEMA aid, and the Duncan Public Library is able to help. The counties impacted by the storm include Cana- dian, Carter, Cherokee, Comanche, Cotton, Hughes, Jefferson, LeFlore, McIntosh, Oklahoma, Okmulgee, Osage, Pittsburg, Stephens, Tulsa and Waggoner counties.  “Currently, Cotton County does not have an open library, so all Cotton County residents are especially welcome to apply at DPL,” according to a press release from the Duncan Public Library.  Those wanting to apply for FEMA aid with the help of the Duncan Public Li- See ‘FEMAAid’ on Page 2
