From OHS
Oilton had its start during the oil boom in the Cushing-Drimright Field. In 1915 town lots were sold and on May 5, 1915, a post office was established. By mid-1915 the First State Bank opened, and the Gusher newspaper was first issued. Also in 1915 the Oil Belt Terminal Railway and the Oil Fields and Santa Fe Railway constructed lines that would connect Oilton with Jennings and Cushing. On March 24, 1915, approximately five thousand people witnessed the first passenger train arrive in Oilton.

By 1918 the burgeoning town had four hotels and several restaurants serving oil-field workers. In 1920 the town had a population of 2,231. As the need for road-building material increased, a rock crusher was established two miles east of the town in 1923. By the mid-1920s Oilton had five churches and five school buildings. Local farmers grew cash crops such as watermelons, cantaloupes, corn, and cotton as well as apples, pears, and peaches.

In the 1930s one cotton gin, eight oil companies, and ten gasoline plants operated. In September 1954 the Southwestern Bell Telephone Company started construction on a building that housed equipment enabling customers to convert from crank-type to dial telephones. In December 1961 a new brick building replaced the former post office facility, which dated to 1919.

After the population peaked in 1920 during the oil boom, it declined to 1,518 in 1930. Numbers continued to dwindle to 1,225 in 1940 and 1,087 in 1970. Population rose to 1,244 in 1980 only to drop to 1,060 in 1990. As of the 2010 census, Oilton had 1,013 citizens.

Host Anne Ferrell Tata is on location at Grace Bible Church, located in Virginia Beach, VA. She is joined by Jessi Rueter, Local Outreach Director for Grace Bible Church. Jessi tells viewers and Anne Ferrell about Grace Bible Church’s monthly service day for the community, called Serve the City. Grace Bible intentionally finds outreach opportunities for children to volunteer and serve all over Hampton Roads, VA. Serve the City is open to Grace Bible church and community members, the first Saturday of the month. It is important to include families and children, as everyone, including children are called to serve by Jesus, Jessi tells Anne Ferrell. Loving neighbors and serving “the least of these,” as a way to honor God, is important to teach and model to children, says Jessi. Grace Bible Church’s children friendly service opportunities include serving in a local nursing home doing crafts, working in the community garden, making cards for military care packages and sorting donations at local homeless outreaches, to name a few. At one service location, children help put together blessing bags to handout to any homeless individuals that they may encounter, says Jessi. Kids love serving, families really like to bring children along and it is impactful for families to do outreach together at Serve the City events, Jessi Rueter tells viewers. Jessi shares that she has a baby and wants her daughter to learn the amazing gift of serving neighbors and connecting with the heart of God through service.

Granite – A Montana Ghost Town – near Philipsburg, Montana MT

High above a valley floor in western Montana you will find the ghost town of Granite, four miles south east of Philipsburg at 8,000 foot elevation. In 1896, Granite was the worlds largest silver mine. The company actually sent a 4,307 pound bar of silver to the World’s Fair in Chicago to showcase the areas riches.

The town prospered with over 3,000 residents. Granite had a Miners Union Hall (that held pool tables, a library and the Northwest’s finest dance floor), several banks, four churches and a school. It also included a weekly newspaper, a brewery and soda pop bottling facility, restaurants, hotels, a bath house, hospital with five doctors, roller skating rink, the lodges of three fraternal orders and hosted traveling theater companies.

Granite also had a water system, named streets, many homes but no cemetery due to the rocky nature of the mountain. No frontier town was complete without saloons and brothels; eighteen to be exact!

Today nature has overtaken the town of Granite. Most of its buildings are gone; some moved, others consumed by fire. The few structures that remain have been stabilized or in ruins. The town is full of granite foundations; an indication of a prosperous time past.

Yukon River ice jam Threatens Alaska Town

Yukon River ice jam Threatens Alaska Town

A huge 30-mile block of ice his causing chaos in an Alaskan town as water has been flowing onto the land.

The colossal river ice jam, which is when water builds up behind a block of ice, was starting to rotate Wednesday as water finally chewed ice chunks away from the stubborn, frozen mass after most of the residents were forced to flee from the rising water.

An aerial survey Wednesday afternoon revealed chunks of ice have broken off at the front of the 30-mile ice jam on the Yukon River, National Weather Service hydrologist Ed Plumb said.

That means the jam will move soon and waters will begin to recede in the waterlogged town of Galena, 20 miles upriver.

The flooding lifted homes off foundations and has threatened to break a dike protecting the airport, virtually the only dry spot left in the community of 500 where floodwaters washed out roads and submerged homes. There are no reports of injuries.

The National Guard flew 32 more people and 19 dogs to Fairbanks Tuesday night. Other residents were evacuated earlier.

Kevin Ray, a state worker who moved to Galena four months ago, was among the human evacuees who flew in on a Guard C-130 transport plane to Fairbanks, 270 miles east of Galena. Ray said the flight was noisy, with the constant barking of frightened dogs.

In Galena, Ray’s office is gone. His apartment and all his possessions are under water.

‘So basically, I’m kind of a homeless guy,’ Ray, 65, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Wednesday from an American Red Cross shelter set up at a local church. ‘I never thought I’d be a victim. But hey, life is life.’

Now that the water is trying to push through the jam, conditions could change quickly. When the jam breaks, the downriver community of Koyukuk will be at risk of flooding.

In an earlier flight Wednesday, Plumb said, the ice was locked firmly in place, despite 80 degree temperatures. The hot weather is expected to last a couple days before cooling slightly.

In Galena, water went over low areas of the dike Tuesday, then the water level fell. With the threat of water topping the dike again, the state took the step of bringing in military aircraft to aid in the evacuations of those who wanted to leave. State emergency spokesman Jeremy Zidek said 76 residents chose to stay in a former Air Force barracks.

The water was rising again Wednesday morning close to the edge of the dike, which protects the runway and some buildings including former barracks, then levels fluctuated without rising more, Plumb said. Outside the dike, everything has been hit by flooding, according to Plumb, who has worked for the weather service for 13 years.

‘I’ve never seen anything like this before,’ he said. ‘And I don’t think these people here (have) either. The ice jam is amazing.’

The damage has left the town without power, fresh water and cell phone reception. When the ice jam knocked out the bridge leading to the airport, evacuees had to be taken there by boat or helicopter, according to Ray, who said the flooding began with a trickle Sunday. In a place where spring flooding is nothing new, many homes are built on stilts, but the fast rising water reached them, too.

An ice jam occurs when water builds up behind a blockage of ice.

That includes a glacier blocking an unfrozen river, as is happening in Alaska, and a thawing river being blocked by a still-frozen section further on.

After the ice dam breaks apart, the sudden surge of water floods areas downstream.

The disaster has left people feeling traumatized and vulnerable, Ray said.

‘We didn’t have any idea how vast the flood was going to be,’ he said.

Zidek said the damage is being assessed and a disaster policy cabinet will forward recommendations to Gov. Sean Parnell, who visited the area Tuesday.

Recommendations are likely to include issuing a disaster declaration.

Parnell surveyed the damage on Tuesday and had the Alaska National Guard help evacuate the estimated 75 residents still in town.

‘We expect the flooding to become worse before the waters start to recede,’ Parnell said.

‘Ensuring the safety of those impacted by the flooding remains my top priority.
