Merry Christmas! Mercy Hospital Logan County now offers a new telestroke program where patients can receive specialized care without driving to Oklahoma City to see a specialist.  Oklahoma has the fourth highest rate of stroke-related death in the country, accounting for almost 1,900 deaths in 2012 (the fifth leading cause of death in Oklahoma), according to the 2014 State of the State’s Health Report from the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

The same report shows that stroke-related deaths decreased by 52% from 2010 to 2012 in Logan County. Mercy Hospital Logan County is one of nine Mercy hospitals in Oklahoma that has adopted telestroke so far. If you notice someone with the following symptoms, remember to think FASST and call 9-1-1. Face: Ask the person to smile. Does the face look uneven? Arm: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift down? Speech: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Does the speech sound strange? Sudden loss of vision: Is the person experiencing a sudden loss of vision? Time: Don’t waste time. Seek medical attention immediately.

The Logan County Cooperative Extension has been having practices for their Shooting Sports Competitions. Archery and air rifle/air pistol shooting sports will hold competitions January 3, 17, 31 and February 7.  We receive brochures every month from the OSU Extension office here in Logan County. I enjoy reading them; they are full of fun facts and information. Their information is available on the web at wwwoces.okstate.edu/logan, or call the office 405-282-3331.

The Guthrie Chamber of Commerce is the front door to this City. The Chamber’s role is to advance the economic, industrial, professional, cultural and civic welfare of the Guthrie area.  We also encourage the growth of existing industries and businesses and, in general, promote the welfare of the area. There is strength in numbers. The three hundred plus members of the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce try to make Guthrie a better place to live and do business. We not only have businesses memberships, we also have Civic memberships available to individuals who are retired or who have a keen interest in civic affairs and want to be involved. Our Mission Statement is: The Guthrie Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary partnership of businesses and individuals working together to promote economic progress.

Our New Year’s Eve coffee, December 31st, will be hosted by Calvert Tax Service! They are located at 105 W. Cleveland. We begin at 9:30, everyone is welcome. The staff at the Guthrie Chamber would like to wish you a Very Merry Christmas!
