Our sincere sympathy goes to the friends and families of Clarence Cucumber, Robert Lee Wahnetah, and Michael Anthony Pheasant, all of Cherokee, who passed away last week.  Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers.

Our condolences also go to the friends and family of Joe L. Bradley of the Wilmont Community who passed away on Friday.  Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers as well.


Congratulations to Charity Sampson who received her GED on Thursday, Jan. 16 at a ceremony at Southwestern Community College.  Charity works with the Boys Club through the Tribe’s WIA program.


Our thanks go out to Cherokee DOT for their long hours and hard work during our recent inclement weather.  They do a great job keeping our roadways clear and safe!


Congratulations to the CMS Girls’ Basketball Team on their undefeated season.  Congratulations also to the CMS Boys’ Basketball Team for their 12-2 season.  The CMS Girls won their first game in the Smoky Mountain Conference Tournament by defeating Murphy 74-19.  The CMS Boys’ game was cancelled due to the weather.

Anyone interested in taking a Boys Club bus to Louisville to watch the Lady Cardinals play a game?  If so, please contact Allan Oocumma or Albert Arch at 497-9101.  If enough interest is generated, efforts will be made to put a trip together.  The tentative game date is Sunday, Feb. 23.  The game begins at 3p.m. against Rutgers.  This would be an excellent opportunity to support our fellow native students (the Schimmel sisters) who play for Louisville.

This date was changed from Feb. 2 to Feb. 23 due to the 2nd being Super Bowl Sunday!
