Phone book recycling - LPS students help public dispose of phone books Schools in Lawton are teaming with AT&T to help local residents find the answer to an annual November question: ‘What do I do with this old phone book?' The Lawton Public Schools has agreed to participate in Project ReDirectory, AT&T's annual drive to collect and recycle copies of phone directories, rather than see them make their way to landfills where they take up unnecessary space. AT&T began distributing the 2008-2009 version of The Real Yellow Pages to Lawton homes and businesses last week. Distribution will continue through the remainder of the month. Meanwhile, LPS schools are acting as collection sites for the 2007-2008 and older versions of the phone book. Customers can drop off their phone books at the school, where they will be collected and then turned over for recycling. AT&T has generously offered cash incentives to the schools that collect the greatest numbers of phone books. In addition to the school collection sites, the City of Lawton has placed large collection bins at all three high schools, as well as at Cameron University. High school bins are located at Eisenhower High (along 52nd Street south of the school), at Lawton High (in the parking lot of Ferris Avenue east of the main building), and at MacArthur High (off Gore Boulevard in the parking lot west of the main entrance). These bins have large signs on them indicating they are reserved for Project ReDirectory. Any type of phone book can be placed in the bins. Schools will accept phone books for recycling until Dec. 5.

We are planning our 1st Annual Rockin' the Falls Charity Concert and Car/Truck Show for Saturday, 22 November at the Hangar MD, located off Sheppard access rd (1119 N. Central Fwy-south of SAFB). The event will run from 1pm to 1am….six local rock bands will be featured and will play throughout the day. The last band of the evening is one of the military's very own ‘Ammo Road' (a group of military guys from the munitions squadron on base). In addition, we will be holding a custom car/truck show. The cost for the event is $15.00. A flyer is attached advertising the event. The event is being held to help raise funds that Miss Fannie's will use to support the numerous spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations of feral cats in the community, and to provide financial assistance/help to low income families unable to pay for spay/neuter/vaccinations and preventive health services for their pets. Miss Fannie's also provides assistance in medical emergencies if needed, and if funds are available. Proceeds will also be used to pay for food/litter/bedding/vet care for our fosters, until they are adopted. We are working closely with city officials to develop a feral cat ordinance for the community, which will make it legal for caretakers to feed and monitor feral/stray cat colonies without fear of reprisal or fines. Miss Fannie's is looking at all options to advertise the event, which will hopefully generate a huge interest. This fundraiser is very important to us, and will most likely be our largest one of the year.

CU Open Auditions - The Cameron University Department of Theatre Arts continues its season of Celebrating the Cameron University Centennial with Athol Fugard's ‘My Children! My Africa!' Open auditions for the production are scheduled for Sunday, November 23 and Tuesday, November 25 at 7 p.m. The auditions will take place in the Cameron University Studio Theatre and are open to the entire Lawton-Fort Sill community. Roles for this production are a Caucasian female (late teens to early 20s), a black male (late teen to early 20s) and a black male (late 30s to late 40s). A profoundly stirring tale, ‘My Children! My Africa!' examines the power of learning and the potency of words, ideas and hope in a time of heightened political and social unrest as a dedicated black teacher in a segregated township is determined to pair his most gifted student with an enthusiastic white schoolgirl in an English literature competition. Friendships become colored by impassioned debates, and the three characters struggle to find understanding amidst South Africa's racial and social divides. Performance dates for the production are February 12-15, 2009. For more information, contact the CU Theatre Arts Department at 581-2346.
