Overspending on silly Birthdays for 5 year-olds

July 25, 2011

By Shirley Taylor

I have noticed when my grandkids go to birthday parties they come home with a small bag of gifts. What's up with that? I remember when I was small and I'd go to a birthday party I'd take a gift and come home with nothing but memories of having a great time. There was cake and ice cream. We'd pin the tail on a donkey and have a blast.

We have always been told that “Pedestrians always have the right of way,” well contrary to popular belief this is not true, according to Oklahoma statue.

Has anyone really taken the time to look around lately and see what we are all doing to our children, well you not me as I have no kids. When your child competes in, lets say, an olympics type of scenario and comes home with a double gold medal something is wrong.

I'M OUT! Done With Political Correctness

July 6, 2011

By Tracy Steffenson

I would like to time travel back to the late 80’s for a moment. When I was a kid, and got tired of playing a game everyone else was playing, all I would have to say is “I’m out!” and they would all leave me alone. Well I would like to try this for all the people who yell racist at the drop of a hat, “ I AM OUT!”

By OSU Extension Services

The battle with false chinch bugs in canola may be over, but these pests thrive in drought conditions and are not above targeting additional crops, such as those raised by Oklahoma sorghum and soybean growers.

These insects typically feed on plants in the mustard and beet family, but when their preferred foods dry up because of plant maturity or having been sprayed with a burndown before planting in no-till operations, the pests leave in search of other tasty treats.

Thoughts on the "Me" Generation

June 29, 2011

By Tracy Steffenson

I absolutely hate the fact that we've become a country where all that matters is "me" and "now." America was once a country where people worked together to form a society which looked out for each other while pulling their own weights, like ants; instead we have become a society of individuals, a society of wolves.

June 22, 2011

Blood donors aren’t the only ones who “feel strong” when they donate with Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI). Patients who rely on blood from local donors also feel strong knowing blood is available, if needed.
The Oklahoma City Zoo has, once again, joined OBI this summer by providing a voucher, good for two tickets to the Oklahoma City Zoo, for each donor.
