OKLAHOMA CITY — A Beaver woman charged with disturbing the peace for chastising the town’s trustees and mayor after a lengthy council meeting said Monday she plans to continue monitoring the board’s activities now that the charges against her have been dropped.

A municipal judge in Beaver dismissed the misdemeanor charge last week against 57-year-old Linda Fisher, a longtime resident of the small Panhandle community of about 1,500 residents known for its annual cow-chip throwing contest.

After a board meeting in August, Fisher warned Beaver Mayor Denise Janko and her supporters on the council to “watch your back” at the next election because of allegations of reckless spending.
