The event will begin at 10:00a.m. A pancake and sausage breakfast will be held at 9:30 a.m. There will be several speakers. According to Elaine Johns, executive director of the Woodring Wall of Honor and Veterans Park, Vietnam veterans or their families will be recognized with a 50th-year lapel pin.

SW)--Cimarron Public Schools Superintendent Charles Lee Anglin turned himself in to authorities Tuesday after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The arrest warrant was issued Monday, and $5,000 bond set. Anglin is charged with one felony count of making a bribe offer to withdraw as a candidate. He is accused of trying to get a possible school board candidate to drop out of the race. Lahoma Police Chief Matthew Hankins told Enid News and Eagle, Anglin left the school after lunch Tuesday and turned himself over to authorities. Anglin reportedly said he would be returning to school today and has no plans to resign. An OSBI investigation reportedly determined Anglin asked Gary Naugle, a school board candidate, to withdraw from the race so the school would not have to pay for an election. Anglin reportedly told Naugle he would be appointed to the board later when board member Shannon Lee resigned due to moving out of the district. Ultimately, Naugle and Christopher Patterson both filed to run for the seat, necessitating an election. According to an affidavit, Patterson confirmed he had not been a registered voter in the district for six months prior to filing for the school board seat. That timeframe is a qualification to run for school board. He still is on the April 4 ballot, which also contains a $15.625 million school bond issue.
