“Mary and J.O. Bass III and MJ Shorthorns were recognized as 2020 Fort Worth Stock Show honorees earlier this month and were honored by the American Shorthorn Association at the group’s national show.

The ASA national show, which is part of the Fort Worth Stock Show, was officially proclaimed the Mary & J.O. Bass III National Shorthorn Show.

“I am very honored to be recognized at the Southwestern Exposition and Stock Show in Fort Worth, which I consider my home show since I grew up showing there,” Mary said. “It is very humbling to be honored for something you love to do.”

“Everyone that knows us knows that this award is about Mary as she is the one who has done this,” J.O. said. “But for 42 years of marriage, this has been a wonderful family project that we have all participated in.”

Olton EMS ‘desperate’ for workers

What would it be like for Olton not to have an ambulance service?

According to Pam Roberson of Olton Volunteer Ambulance Association, that’s a question Olton area residents need to be asking themselves as the number of volunteers serving with Olton EMS dwindles.

“How fortunate Olton is to have a 24/7/365 volunteer ambulance service you can call any time you are in need,” she said. “But what would it be like if we didn’t have an ambulance service at all?”

Some of OVAA’s volunteers have moved away, while others have retired. That exodus has left OVAA with only 10 certified attendants, including some who are working 60 hours per week to keep Olton EMS running.
