Seniors to present The Treasure of Shiver River

Corn, OKLA — Scoop O’Mally , our Jordan Penner, has his hands full, watching and waiting for the next breaking story for his local paper.  It’s the dead of winter and Cattlemen come to the Lucky Hotel from all over the territory, bringing their cattle into town for the cattle auction, but it’s hard to drive cattle when their horns are frozen.  Lotta Luck, a semi-reformed gambler known to us as Regan Wherritt, runs the hotel and takes care of her patrons.  Everyone is waiting for the arrival of only auctioneer in the area, Rusty Nail and his son, Bent, who are brought to life by Mitchell Graf and Joel Kliewer.  Scoop’s only hoping that there is a juicy story in here somewhere.
Soon, the nasty scoundrel Rod Enreel, a.k.a. Wesley Javorsky, will most certainly take over the Shiver River Ranch and find the hidden treasure if Colonel Sanders, our Brendon White, can’t sell his cattle to come up with the mortgage money owed against his ranch.  The do-gooder, Marshal Marshall Law, local lawman otherwise known as Riley Kliewer would love to propose marriage to the colonel’s daughter Heidi Claire, (actually Cassie Oliver) but he can’t.  Yet.  He’s made a promise.  Will the black-hearted villain Rod Enreel beat him to it?  This evil serpent has a series of plans, one being to marry the optimistic sweetheart of the ranch and then do her in and abscond with the treasure and his romance novel-loving partner-in-crime, Paige Turner, or our beautiful Morgan Leppke.  Also in cahoots with the dark one is con artist, Dr. Ophelia Payne, played by Aevry Hayes, who has as many accents as the United Nations.  She tricks the auctioneer into thinking he’s a dog, halting the auction.
Oh to be sure, others are also looking for the buried treasure.  The colonel and a couple of prospecting brothers, Orin Gold and an ex-sea pirate known only as Captain (Chandler Smith and Michael Boese) have worked together for years searching for the treasure but to no avail.  Oh, there’s a story here for sure, and Scoop will find it because his readers want to know.
Join the senior class and witness first-hand The Treasure of Shiver River by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus on Saturday, November 1.  The juniors are willing to feed you with a Mexican Feast at 5pm and the show will start at 7pm.  If you prefer, matinees will run both Thursday and Friday (October 30 and 31) at 1pm.

Anatomy Class Visits Museum

CBA Anatomy Class

Corn, OKLA — On September 30th, the Corn Bible Academy anatomy class took a field trip to The Museum of Osteology in Oklahoma City for an outside the classroom experience in science. Osteology, or the study of bones, is commonly used in TV programs such as C.S.I. to identify or verify criminal activity. The museum, the only one of this type in the United States, has a unique collection of over 300 animal and human skeletons on display. The students enjoyed standing inside a rhino skeleton and identifying and comparing various vertebrate skeletons as they toured the facility. The second part of the visit involved an activity similar to that done by a homicide detective. The students and their instructor, Sandra Cloud, had the privilege of participating in a crime-based lab activity using human skulls. The class was taught by the staff of the museum and was designed to enable students to determine the cause of death and the age of the victim in a number of human skulls that had experienced various types of trauma. In addition to the interesting things seen at the museum, the students gained insight into various careers that use the biological sciences.
