Gorilla mascot to be returned to Picher area

There are 2 comments on the Joplin Globe story from Jun 27, 2009, titled Gorilla mascot to be returned to Picher area. In it, Joplin Globe reports that:

PICHER, Okla. - Bobo, a 3,800-pound concrete gorilla, is coming home. For years, the mascot for the Picher-Cardin Gorillas stood outside of the high school, but with the demise of the school as part of the buyout of the town, many of the artifacts and much of the memorabilia from the district went up for auction earlier this month.

where will the school kids go to school now?
I remember when I was in High School or the year after I graduated High School Willie Ng took the Picher-Cardin Gorillas to the state championship defeating the Fox Foxes in the state title game in 1985 I believe.
Way to go Willy.
