Winter weather continues
Temperatures dropped to 10 degrees. Freezing rain and snow fell, covering roads and yards. Through all of it, one thing was certain: Winter weather had come to Duncan.
In fact, about 0.23 inches of precipitation fell between 10:30 a.m. Thursday and about 9 a.m. Friday. By Friday afternoon, snow drifts ranged from about 2 inches up to 4 inches. And high temperatures leveled out at 25 degrees.
Museum on track for holidays
Although watching car after car go by while waiting for the caboose to pass at a railroad crossing is usually inconvenient, there is something almost mesmerizing about a model train going round and round a track.
In the past, many a family Christmas tree was accompanied by a model train at its base. In Duncan, one woman set up an entire Christmas village, complete with train, at her home and opened it up to the public. That scene has now been recreated by the Stephens County Historical Museum.
Duncan FD battles blaze
Snow fell Friday, but Duncan firefighters stayed warm by the heat of a structure fire.
About 10 firefighters responded to a blaze around 10:30 a.m. Friday in the 100 block of South Fourth Street. A structure, just south of Main Street, was fully involved.
The building was across Fourth Street from Southwest Foods. The fire was contained to the one building.
Abigail Smith sends her final goodbye through online video
Though a community is grieving this weekend over the loss of Abigail Smith, those who knew her the best, know she is free from the pain of cancer.
Abigail was diagnosed in early 2012, with Synovial Cell Sarcoma, but “won” her battle early Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013. Some people may not see her death as a win, but Abigail, 24, never wavered in her mission to live life to its fullest. She always exuded the positive message of being a survivor.
Armitstead tackles next challenge at Christians Concerned
Barbara Armitstead came out of retirement to lend help to one of Duncan’s non-profit ventures.
Armitstead is the new executive director of Christians Concerned. Her first day with the United Way agency was Monday. She’s taking over the position recently vacated by Kassie Gilmore.
“I’m very excited about it,” Armitstead said. “It’s going to be a challenge, but I’m looking forward to it.”
City Council to discuss possible improvement for Data Center
To improve the City of Duncan’s Data Center, the Duncan City Council may approve purchasing a server virtualization solution.
This purchase, if approved, would improve the performance and capacity of the Data Center. The server virtualization solution would cost $76,003.17 and would be purchased from CDW Logistics.
Golden Corral building remains vacant
In November 2012, Duncan’s Golden Corral closed its doors, leaving its building vacant on U.S. Highway 81.
More than a year later, the building still doesn’t have a new business. And it’s not the only building in such a condition. Buildings previously home to Hastings Entertainment and Goodies also remain vacant.
The gift of giving
Many young people have made out their list for Christmas, however, 11 Duncan Middle School students recently experienced the joy of giving rather than receiving.
Before Christmas each year, Love in Action, an organization through Eastside Church of Christ, makes aprons out of holiday themed fabric to take to nursing homes. This year, the group wasn’t able to purchase the fabric.
Jimmy’s Egg to arrive in March
Jimmy’s Egg is coming to Duncan.
In March, the breakfast and lunch restaurant will be taking over the old Legacy Bank location, just south of the Legacy Bank on U.S. Highway 81. This adds to other recent restaurant chains that have moved into Duncan in the past 12 months, including national chain Applebees Neighborhood Grill & Bar and Oklahoma chain Interurban.
Revolvers and Rhinestones to offer mounted shooting clinic

Beginning shooters, who have never shot off their horse, will be from 1-3 p.m. and intermediate shooters, who want to refine their skills, will be from 3-5 p.m. at the Stephens County Fair & Expo Center.
