Winning Attitude

I first visited Tushka Schools in April 2011, after a tornado destroyed the district’s main school building. It was a heartbreaking scene – much of the building was in ruin, many students and teachers were displaced from their homes, and district staff worried about how they would finish the school year. I visited the Atoka County district again about a year ago, and I made my third trip last week. I can hardly express how thrilled I am with the fortitude of the students, teachers and administrators in Tushka.

Let It Snow

By: Richard Hollander.

In our area of the country – Southwest Oklahoma – we don’t get very much snow. We must consider it likely to only get one snow shower in an average year; and occasionally, no snow at all.

Open Door Policy

As the federal government shut-down looms, I grow tired of the endless pointing of fingers going on by both political parties. I asked a riddle to a group the other day and they also felt was appropriate with what is going on in Washington, D.C. What do you get when you cross an elephant and a donkey, the mascots for both major political parties? The answer is an ostrich; an animal that likes to bury its head in the sand when problems arise and tries to ignore them.
