Thank a vet this Memorial Day


I know I don’t say it enough.

Please know that we appreciate our service men and women and the sacrifices they endure daily.

From the separation from their families to giving the ultimate sacrifice, thank you so that we can go about our daily lives.

We should never take our freedoms for granted.

They don’t come cheap and they don’t come without sacrifice.

Take this to heart this Memorial Day and thank a veteran.


At the risk of getting a HIPAA ticket, we have had a couple of tough situations lately.

Last week, our Girl Friday, Vickie Foraker went to the hospital with a kidney stone.

Tough deal for her.

Then this past Monday, my brother-in-law, Mike Clark of Midwest City, had to have a heart procedure to get his rhythm back to normal.

Scary for him and my sis, Mary Ann, a/k/a Missy.

Seems like all is well now and that’s a huge blessing.


And speaking of blessings, the folks in western Oklahoma got a big drink of water with the latest round of rain and that’s great for them.

Too bad it probably isn’t going to save the wheat crop.

Came a little late for that but at least they received some much, much needed rainfall.


We had a great need for the Little Dutch Boy at The Register this Monday.

Apparently some plumbing work on the back end of the newspaper office several months ago left a water line unplugged.

With the monsoon rainfall we had Monday, the unplugged pipe filled up and began spewing water into a room in the back portion of the paper office.

It was as if someone had turned on a faucet.

Water was pouring out from a hole in a wall gushing into the floor.

To make matters worse the room was one of the paper’s two morgues with copies of The Register dating back to 1916. Fortunately none of the bound volumes were damaged and the leak was fixed thanks to some nifty work of a handy man.
