    Note: This is a Gatehouse property, not CNHI (which owns most of the smaller papers in Oklahoma).

    It was 101 degrees today (Friday, Sept. 6).

    they haven't hired an SE yet. Noticed that Rex Ryan is from Ardmore too ... for those that care.

    they've made a sports editor hire. Now working on the reporter spot. Think they wanna move pretty quick. Also, the previous SE left for a job at the Oklahoman.

    Scott Joiner is the new SE here. He was the SE at the Fort Bend Herald.

    Congrats. Freelanced for Scott last year and he was a real pro to work with. I hope he can survive Ardmore OK.
