Governor Fallin Eases Truck Rules to Save Livestock  

July 27, 2011

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed an executive order on Friday, July 22, 2011 allowing haulers of hay to carry larger loads in their trucks. The order comes in light of the ongoing drought, which has left some farmers without access to hay for livestock.
 
Current rules restrict haulers of hay to dimensions of 11 feet in width. Governor Fallin’s executive order increases those limits to 12 feet. Because a standard hay bale is six feet in width, this change doubles the amount of hay bales capable of being hauled per truck without a permit.

Golfers losing interest due to lack of time and frustration

July 27, 2011

I read an interesting article in a golf industry magazine the other day. The article was dealing with the fact that the game of golf has not grown since 2000.

The two main reasons are (1) time to play the game and (2) frustration with the game.

Frustration centers on the fact that most people can't break 100 on a par 72 course, that the came is too tough and therefore no fun.

The other reason, time, is associated with the course. Too many people looking for golf balls. Trying to negotiate a course that is too long or the greens are too fast or too hard to read.
