Colley decided to do something about it. He created the World War I Mobile Museum.

Auditions for DLT’s November production “Exit Laughing” are set for 6 to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at Duncan Little Theatre on Main Street.  No prepared monologues will be required. Instead, the auditions will feature a cold read from the script, once audition forms are filled out.  The cast includes four women and one man.  According to a Facebook page by Duncan Little Theatre, tthe characters include “Rachel Ann: College student who has issues with life and men; Connie Harland: 50ish mother of Rachel, who hosts a 30 year bridge game night; Leona: Connie’s friend and member of the bridge club, who is a beautician and a rather caustic lush; Millie: Member of the bridge club, who moves to a different drummer, even though she is the only one who hears it.; Bobby/Policeman: College student who works nights as a ‘stripper,’ must be willing to strip to a speedo (this will be taste- fully done).”  Performances for “Exit Laughing” will take place Nov. 11 to 13. RSV Infection is Rising in Oklahoma by Marylin Butorac (CTCN Community Correspondant)  “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is issuing this health advisory to notify clinicians and caregivers about increased interseasonal respira- tory syncytial virus (RSV) activity across parts of the Southern United States.  Due to this increased activity, CDC encourages broader testing for RSV among patients presenting with acute respiratory illness who test negative for SARS- CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. RSV can be associated with severe disease in young children and older adults. This health advisory also serves as a reminder to healthcare personnel, childcare providers, and staff of long-term care facilities to avoid reporting to work while acutely ill – even if they test negative for SARS-CoV-2.”  Each year RSV puts thousands in the hospital, including children and the elderly and is fatal for hundreds. The symptoms of this respiratory disease in chil- dren include difficulty breathing, cough with mucus, refusing feedings, whistling or wheezing breaths and dehydration.   Those who have respiratory symptoms, whether they are children or adults, and test negative for Covid 19 should request a test for RSV from their healthcare provider.  RSV is spread by virus droplets, just as Covid 19, and the best way to help stop the spread is to wear a mask, according to the CDC. Charis Center celebrates birthday  The Charis Center is a facility that offers free ultra- sounds, pregnancy confirmations and options, parent- ing classes, and baby supplies to those in need.  Since it was established in 2017, Charis has served more than 450 clients.  Sunday, September 26, the Center will celebrate it’s fourth birthday from 2-4 pm at their location, 1700 West Jones Avenue in Duncan.  Anyone in the community is welcome to come enjoy refreshments, tour the facility, and learn more about the many services Charis offers.

To schedule an appointment, potential clients should visit the website at, call 580.786.6000, or text 405.757.4673. Shadow Riders dance at Fairgrounds Saturday  The Shadow Riders featuring Buzz Carter, Jim Alexander, Robert Bilbrey and Gary Scott will hold a dance at the Stephens County Fairgrounds on each Saturday from 7:00 to 9:15 pm.  The dance will be held in the Heritage room. Entrance will be through the west doors of the main building.  The Shadow Riders were one of the featured bands that played regularly at the Duncan Senior Citizens Center before the Covid-19 lockdown.  The dance is alcohol free, family friendly and those who attend should bring their own refreshments. Adult admission is $8.00.  For more information call 580-470-5606. Join the Bedlam Blood Battle & Give Blood  The Oklahoma Blood Institute’s Bedlam Blood Battle is here and no matter which side you’re on, your donation will make a lifesaving difference for a fellow Oklahoman.  Join Simply Nutrition at a blood drive with Okla- homa Blood Institute from 9:00 to 2:00 on Tuesday, September 28 at 1953 W Elk in Duncan.  Successful blood donors will receive their choice of an “OSU orange” or “OU crimson” Bedlam t-shirt.  In addition, for a limited time only, all donors will receive Hemoglobin A1C blood sugar testing, which can help monitor diabetes risk.  “No matter which team you’re backing in the Bed- lam Blood Battle, blood donation has always been an easy way to help a neighbor,” said Dr. John Armit- age, President and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute. “Now, it’s also an easy and free way to test your average blood sugar level to be better informed about your health. We’re excited to offer this testing to our donors as part of their lifesaving blood donation.”  Oklahoma Blood Institute relies on 1,200 volun- teer blood donors a day to meet the needs of patients at more than 160 hospitals and medical facilities as well as all air ambulances statewide. Anyone who is healthy and 16 years old* or older can give blood. Blood can be donated every 56 days. Platelets can be given as often as every seven days, up to 24 times a year.  Appointments to donate can be made online at obi. org or by calling 877-340-8777. While COVID-19 vaccination is not required of blood donors, those who have been vaccinated can donate immediately, assuming they are feeling well. Blood donation typically takes only about an hour, and one donation saves up to three lives. Grandparent Respite Funds Are Available!  Grandparents or Seniors who are age 55 or above and raising a grandchild or other relative child, may apply for Grandparent Respite.  This program will pay the person you choose to watch your children up to $10 per hour for up to 30 hours per quarter so you may have time away to take care of personal needs, go out for coffee with a friend or just take a nap!  Funds are provided by the Older Americans Act of 1965.

Since not all our memories are positive, we must sift through them, choosing which ones to keep and which ones to discard. For the most part, happy people have mastered the holy art of remembering good things.” – Richard Exley, July 9, 2012 “Do not wait; the time will never be “just right.” Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and bet- ter tools will be found as you go along.” - Napoleon Hill
