By Ronnie Clifton, Mayor
The City of Comanche is gearing up for a five day celebration for our Veterans beginning on Friday, November 7, that will culminate with a lunch for our nation’s heroes on November 11, which is Veterans Day itself. There will be community activities for all five days.

Good turn out and ideas from town hall meeting

He thanked the Revitalize Comanche Committee, pointing out the improvements that have been made to the Courthouse Square. He ended his first remarks by saying, “We’re here to find solutions.”

Deer/turkey season opens November 1

Game Warden Report By Mike Alexander
Deer season opens Saturday. Comanche is still in a long term drought, but we tend to get enough rain at critical times to help the wildlife.
The overall deer population is good, but poor fawn crops several years ago mean that there are fewer mature bucks. October has been hot, and there has not been much deer activity, but the rut and cooler weather should get them moving. Antler development is good, but I am seeing a lot of bucks with antlers under the 13 inch spread. Remember to abide by the antler restriction and let the small bucks grow up. There are turkeys in areas with good habitat, but very few quail.

HALLOWEEN TRICK OR TREATERS: Dr. Gary Easley, Dr. Ryan Seegmiller, and his wife McKenna, of Comanche Dental were a big hit at the Trick or Treat on the Square making balloon caricatures for the children last Saturday.


Job Fair coming, November 5

Blattner Energy, Inc. in cooperation with Pattern Development’s Logan’s Gap Wind Project, is hosting a job fair for the wind turbine project here.
The fair will be held Wednesday, November 5 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Comanche Community Center.

Indians host West, playoff hopes on the line

The Comanche Indians’ playoff hopes are on the line this Friday night when the Indians host the West Trojans. Comanche must win their final two games to make the playoffs.
Indian head coach Stephen Hermesmeyer says, “It’s real simple, we must win this Friday night. We are fighting for our football lives. West will come in hoping to clinch the three seed.” The Indians could end up as the three seed by beating West by nine points and then defeating Hillsboro.
