‘Big Mac’ & ‘The Interview’ left big, lasting impression
The Oklahoma State Penitentiary stands on 1,556 acres of land in McAlester, Okla. It was built with prison labor.
The site of the worst prison riot in U. S. history, the massive white structure looms over the city of McAlester. A sickly, yellow light encircles the prison at night, giving one a feeling of evil emanating from the building itself.
Musings on our vacation and lacrosse
My wife and I just got back from the long vacation drive to New York City to see my mom and family.
It was a great trip, but living out of suitcases for two weeks got old about halfway into the adventure.
We stopped in Nashville for a couple of days to see our oldest daughter, who recently relocated there for a new job, then spent some time in Gettysburg (I’m a Civil War buff) before landing at my mom’s house on Long Island.
Intership is time well spent
As I draw near the halfway point of my time here in Chickasha, I am amazed by how much I’ve learned and how positive the experience here has been.
In less than a month I have had the fortune of meeting and interacting with some of the most kind and helpful people I’ve ever come across.
Chickasha High now owns bragging rights
I am very proud of the fact that Chickasha High School made Newsweek's 2010 list of "America's Best High Schools." This isn't the first time CHS has made this prestigious, national list.
The next bubble: Mike Garrett’s ego
Mike Garrett’s ego is so big it thought it should get its own conference during last week’s college athletic realignment.
Airlines should double-charge the USC athletic director when he flies – once for his body and again for his big head.
Shaping up & having the time of their lives
On June 7, I took my daughters, Allison and Breanna, to something I hoped would be one of those things they would cherish – something that could change their lives. I took my daughters to FLO Health and Fitness and got them started on the 2010 Ms. Fit Teen Challenge.
Candidate crop looks plentiful this season
On Saturday, I was given a great opportunity to meet and listen to the candidates for several state offices, including governor and lieutenant governor.
The Oklahoma Press Association fielded this panel discussion titled "Oklahoma's Future," which I think is a fitting description of what we should be looking for in our candidates. If elected, how will each individual impact Oklahoma's future in a positive way through their elected office?
Marty, Monsters & My Miracle Mets
The mention of Marty Seymour no longer makes me curl into ball, assume a fetal position, and cry for my mother.
I've slain that emotional dragon, thank you very much. The psychotherapy is working.
House sees increase of activity
We have seen a steady increase of floor activity at the House of Representatives over the past two weeks as the Oklahoma Legislature has been considering more bills at the Capitol.
