There are many resources senior citizens need and soon, the Beaver Elder Fair in Beaver, Okla. will be just the place to be to find those resources. 

This year’s Elder Fair will be Friday at the Beaver County Fair Pavilion in Beaver, Okla., with registration being from 9 to 9:45 a.m. and the fair itself starting at 9:45 a.m. and lunch being provided later in the day. The theme of this year’s event is “Boot, Scootin’ and Boogying in Our Golden Years.”

“One thing about it is it's free, lunch is provided to everyone, it's a great chance for socialization for senior citizens,” coordinator Misti Bohl said. “That day will include speakers, entertainment, information booths, door prizes and giveaways, all that. It's also a great opportunity for seniors taking care of their grandchildren to learn more about the services available to them. There will also be booths from different agencies along with nursing homes and assisted living. We'll also have hospice agencies there, we'll be giving flu shots this year, there's just a lot that'll be going on that day.”

For almost a half, the Liberal Redskins looked like they were going to pull off an upset over the Dodge City Red Demons Friday night at Redskin Field.

But a late score in the second quarter allowed Dodge City to take the lead, and after a Redskins turnover, the Red Demons quickly capitalized and never looked back. The Redskins continued to struggle despite taking an early lead, and the final home game ended with a 31-6 loss.

Midterms about future of American freedom



According to the Pew Research Center, 62 percent of those supporting Democratic candidates and 18 percent of those supporting Republican candidates say, "If a person is rich, it is because he or she had more advantages in life than most other people." 

This from a new Pew survey of Democratic and Republican voters, going into the midterm elections. 

There couldn't be a bolder picture of the deep division between Democrats and Republicans regarding what America is about. 

Consider the richest man in America, Jeff Bezos. He's the founder and chairman of Amazon and is worth well over 100 billion dollars, depending on where the stock market ends up on any given day. 

Did Bezos achieve this phenomenal wealth because he had "more advantages in life than most other people"? 

Bezos was born to a teenage mother and a father who was an alcoholic. The marriage lasted one year. 

When Bezos was 4 years old, his mother married Mike Bezos, a Cuban immigrant who arrived in the USA when he was 15.
