Latta Lady Panthers beat Stonewall
The Class 2A #6 ranked Latta Lady Panthers used a tenacious defense to force 32 Stonewall turnovers en route to a 52-22 victory on Friday night at the Murphy Roberts Gymnasium.
Latta’s defense also held Stonewall to 7-of-28 (25 percent) shooting for the game. The Lady Panthers did not have a great offensive night as they were 20-62 (32 percent) from the field.
Turnovers create victory for Latta Panthers
The Latta Panthers used a tenacious defense to keep forcing turnover after turnover against Stonewall Friday night inside the Murphy-Roberts Gymnasium.
And most of those turnovers led to easy transition buckets.
After Carter Kessinger hit the first of his four 3-pointers on the night with just over one minute left in the first quarter, the Class 2A second-ranked Panthers had built a staggering 24-0 lead. Latta would keep the pedal to the metal and speed past Stonewall 75-30.

Agency reaches campaign goal
The Ada Regional United Way wrapped up its annual fundraising campaign last week and will begin distributing the proceeds in early 2014.
The United Way generated slightly more than $230,000 for social service agencies during the campaign, which ended after the nonprofit’s last major employer turned in its contribution on Dec. 18, executive director Latricia Bryant said Friday. She said that donation allowed the United Way to reach its goal for the year.
“So that finished us up, and we’ll continue to take contributions and pledges until the end of this year,” she said.
Any contributions that are turned in to the United Way by Dec. 31 will be added to the total for 2014.
Income-tax ruling may send lawmakers back to start
Lawmakers will have to figure out a new way to reduce state income taxes and finance improvements at the Capitol complex after the Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down a bill that would have accomplished those goals, Rep. Todd Thomsen said Friday.
“I think there was an attempt to do something wise and planned out, but they balked at having two different subjects combined in one issue,” the Ada Republican said. “So we’ll have to address that.”
