Closing Optima?
10/21/2009

In a report from the Guymon Daily Herald, Senator Tom Coburn was in Hooker last night as regional residents have been asked to voice their opinions on closing Optima Wildlife Area.

After nearly $2 million dollars was allotted to fix the guard rail on the Optima Dam Road, Congressmen and news broadcasters across the nation were buzzing, and reporting the project was poor spending since Lake Optima is nearly non-existent and recreation areas were closed by the Corps of Engineers years ago. To remedy this expenditure, politicians began discussing closing the road, thus the area.

Suddenly hunters and others who use the area, which hosted a National Weimaraners Hunting Competition just last month, are resisting the idea.

Senator Coburn and Matt Ball, his representative, were at the forum to hear everyones point on the issue to report back to Washington, D.C.

The forum began at 7:30pm at the Hooker Chamber of Commerce on Highway 54.
