My lengthy shopping history with Sears is about to end


I believe it was in 1964 when the late Pastor Bob Kelso and his wife picked me up after school at Burbank Elementary School on a chilly fall afternoon. Our family belonged to Tulsa Bible Church, where Pastor Kelso preached. He and his wife had a heart for the children in our neighborhood at 5th […]

Global warming theory does not match up with science


As I sat in a movie theater last week waiting to see the movie Dunkirk, we watched previews of the upcoming attractions.  One of those previews was Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel. I have to say, the guy is quite the actor.  He makes an impassioned and well-orchestrated pitch for his never-ending scheme to sell […]

Go visit BB&T Ballpark in Downtown Charlotte, N.C.


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – I recently performed the National Anthem prior to a Charlotte Knights baseball game and this was the second year in a row I had the honor to do so. I always enjoy visiting BB&T Ballpark in Downtown Charlotte, but in a lot of ways it reminds me of home – the Tulsa […]
