Abbott and Costello’s classic comedy dialogue about “Who’s on first?” and “What’s on second?” takes on new meaning as a drilling rig is installed at the Pawhuska High School softball field recently. Capping operations were undertaken by the Osage Nation Minerals Council after gas was found to be leaking from the abandoned well, which was located underneath the middle part of the diamond. Summer league games that were scheduled to be played at the field last week were switched to alternate sites. Plugging of the well had been completed by late last week. It is hoped that repairs to the playing field will be completed before the PHS Lady Huskies open their regular season later this month.
