The Jadwin Community will come alive Saturday, October 13, at it’s Annual Jadwin School Reunion. A carry-in dinner is planned at noon at the Jadwin School House located one mile off K Highway on BB Highway. BB highway is just before the Jadwin Fire house and Post Office. Storytellers like David and Earl Dean Smith and their sister Marlene Gorman will tell stories about the old School and activities in the Community. Their mother (Mrs. Elvin) Lois Smith wrote the history of the Upper Current Community many years ago. Clifford Jadwin will start the storytelling which will start after lunch around 1 p.m. The Jadwin School House was built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) as a two-room school with a lunchroom. The building is constructed of cement with a stone facade, unlike most rural schools made from local lumber. It was very unique in that in the basement was built a kitchen and a lunchroom where hot lunches were served. This history of the Jadwin Community is part of the Dent County Historical Society’s oral history project. Some of the other communities with recorded history include Cedar Grove, Lake Spring, Lenox, Pleasant Valley, and Turtle. So, come and share your school, church, and family history of the Jadwin community with photos, newspaper articles and printed histories. The event is co-sponsored by the Jadwin School Reunion Committee and the Dent County Historical Society. For more information on the Jadwin Reunion call Janet Lough Hasten at 729-5838 or Clifford Jadwin at 729-6470 or Deloris Gray Wood, president Dent County Historical Society, at 729-2545.

A Big 12 showdown will ensue in Norman this weekend, as the sixth- ranked Oklahoma Sooners play host to the 11th-ranked Missouri Tigers. Missouri has won its first five games this season, including last weekend's 41-6 romp over a strong Nebraska squad. The 35-point margin of victory over the Huskers was the greatest for Mizzou in this series since 1947. The Tigers also beat Illinois in week one, and the Illini are now ranked and undefeated in Big Ten play. This weekend's game, however, figures to be the toughest test yet. Oklahoma crushed the first four teams on its schedule, and after a shocking loss to Colorado to fall to 4-1, the Sooners got back on track with a 28-21 decision over arch-rival Texas last weekend.
