For those of you who read the
magazine, I’m sure you
have noticed my picture. I would like everyone to know my side of
the story for the sake of my family and my business.
I was pulled over for my taillight being out while driving a
vehicle that I had recently repossessed. The vehicle was still
registered to the prior owner and although I had my dealer tag and
insurance verification, the officer was suspicious that the vehicle
was stolen, so he called for a back-up officer and a drug dog.
Although the officer said that drugs had been detected by the
dog, myself and my passenger, whom has experience with training
canines for law enforcement, did not witness any gesture or sound
made by the dog that would indicate that drugs had been detected.
After searching my vehicle, myself and my passenger, the
officer did not find any illegal drugs. He did find medication
that was prescribed to me due to the fact that I am scheduled for
surgery number three on my shoulders.
The mistake I made was putting two different medications in
one bottle. My wife came right away to show the officer proof of
my prescriptions but it was too late. I was arrested and taken to jail
where I spent 53 hours. My attorney presented my prescription
to the Assistant District Attorney of Stephens County Monday
morning and no charges were ever filed.
Even though my vehicle was searched illegally and my
Miranda rights were not read to me, I have decided not to press
charges against the Stephens County Sheriffs Department and put
this nightmare behind me. I believe that officer deserves a second

Their restoration of the historic building
brings to mind the history of the Chamber
that appeared in the September 18, 1930 issue
The Marlow Review
. Reference is made
to the beginnings of the Marlow Chamber
of Commerce in 1908, and it might interest
some to know in 1908 the unique, landmark
building at 213 W. Main was already tower-
ing over downtown. Here’s an excerpt from
that 1930 article.
TORY. On all sides individuals may be found
who have made an outstanding success in
some particular line of endeavor and these
have been successful due to a vision that they
had of their job that inspired them to greater
efforts. Communities are made up of individ-
uals and so we find that this composite citi-
zenship represents the personality of the com-
munity and if it has a vision of what they want
their community to be, then that community
will grow and prosper, but if that citizenship
is wrapped up in its own individual problems,
and is selfish and narrow in its views, with no
thought of the development of the whole, that
community will be strangled to death and will
sooner or later die for ‘Where there is no vi-
sion, there is death.’ Where there are no lead-
ers there can be no vision.”
“In studying the early history of the de-
velopment of Marlow will be found that
there was a vision on the part of some of the
leading men and women and this vision was
gradually imparted to other men and women
and the result today is a source of common
pride to all. It is like reading from the pages
of romance, for on the local stage has been
enacted a play in which the players were the
local citizens of the community.”
“Back in 1908 may be found the first
movement started to work, and cooperate
with each other, for in the fall of that year
the business men of Marlow got together
and took time away from their business to go
out into the Wood Reserve to get acquainted
with the new citizens who had just moved
into that strip of country that lies to the west
and south of Marlow, and to invite them to
come to Marlow and do their trading. Then
in the following year an organization of local
business men was organized with T.T. Eason,
president, J. Ad Wylie, vice president, and
J.W. Talla, secretary. Then in the summer of
1910 a booster trip was put on that included
as much of the territory as could be well cov-
ered by horse and buggy and it will long be
remembered by those making the trip.”
“This early organization continued to
function as problems arose that called for the
united effort of the community and then when
the problem had been solved the organization
lapsed into inactivity only to be aroused into
life when new conditions developed.”
“In 1920 the leaders began to think of
having a constructive year-round program,
and with this in mind a permanent organi-
zation was formed and steps were taken to
employ a permanent secretary who would be
on the job all the time carrying out the wishes
of the citizens. From this time on until the
present time the Marlow Chamber of Com-
merce has been a virile organization that has
been working for the up-building of the en-
tire community.”
And, now, 82 years after that article was
written, the Marlow Chamber of Commerce
is still at work “to maximize the use of
community resources for the betterment of
