Kathleen Jacqueline (Weise) Moore, 87, of Oklahoma, formerly of Benton, passed from this life to her Christian reward on Oct. 6, 2011. She was born Oct. 30, 1923, in a home outside Benton.She was the youngest of six children born to Oswald Weise and Manie Langley Weise.
She graduated from Harmony Grove School in Haskell, where she played basketball, oftentimes playing outdoors on a dirt court. She made her Christian profession of faith at an early age and was baptized in Ten Mile Creek (not too far from Benton).
The class 6A No. 1 team in the state, the El Dorado Wildcats, wasted little time in dispatching the Sheridan Yellowjackets 38-7 at Yellowjackets Stadium on Friday night.
â€śWe got outplayed and out-coached,â€ť Sheridan Coach Louis Campbell said. â€śIt wasnâ€™t even a ballgame. Their bus driver beat our bus driver.â€ť
The Wildcats (6-0, 3-0 6A South) scored 21 points in the first quarter and was up 35-0 at half time, invoking the mercy rule, where the clock stops for timeouts and injuries only.
