This year’s Murray County Junior Livestock Show is dedicated to Debbie Sharp. She is recently retired after a 32-year career with the OSU Extension Office. But retirement is not holding her back. Indeed, she still volunteers with the livestock show and other entities. For example, on Thursday night, Feb 19, Sharp was busy supervising the Key Clubs’ food servers at the Sulphur and Davis chambers banquet. They fed more than 300 guests that night.
A winter storm that had everything from drizzle to heavy snow at times shut down Sulphur Public Schools, many businesses and the Murray County Courthouse for two days beginning Monday. The powerful storm began moving into the Murray County area Sunday morning with sharply colder temperatures and, by Sunday evening, a spate of drizzle, freezing rain, sleet and snow began falling.

Sulphur will take three wrestlers to the state tournament, including returning qualifier senior Steven Baker, undefeated freshman brother Dan and senior Hagen Garcia. Baker continued his perfect season by winning regionals last week and beating last year’s state runner up from Chandler, 3-2 in the finals. His older brother Steven placed second and Garcia came in fourth.

The Sulphur boys accomplished something that hadn’t been done since 2003 and they hope to continue what has been a really good stretch of play at the right time of the year. The Dogs (14-10) got by Pauls Valley Friday night 48-40 in districts and will now move on to play Class 4A No. 2 Harrah Thursday night in regionals.
