An email from Mike Wyant in CA to say that his 32 year old son Ash is gravely ill with heart and lung problems that may require organ transplants. I know Mike and his family would appreciate you keeping Ash & his wife Rebecca and two young daughters in your prayers.
There is NO joy in Soonerville! OUr guys played a great game, sadly, we didn't win! I don't know who I feel the worst for....Oklahoma? Or Kay Crossland!
Received this from Luther Green......
" when I was a youngster, I coached cardinal league football here in Beaumont,Tex. JP Richardson's son Jay played on my team. I taught him better than to sell his dads casket."

"Thanks for all your work on the blog which brings much interesting news. I and my wife Lynn are doing well, I guess, here in Tulsa where I'm an engineer at American Airlines. Please, no complaints, I have nothing to do with delays, scheduling, luggage, fares, and the like.
To partially answer your question about what went on in the dome of the old building, I was once told that Don Blanding [class 1912] led a heifer up there. This came from a fan of Don's, but I can't vouch for the story. I have never been prouder to be associated with any group of people than with the class of 1964 at Lawton High. Best regards, Steve Tedder [class '64]
Marcille Covey sent this interesting item if anyone is planning a trip to Branson........
"there is a new little museum that should be of interest to all who are interested in American politics/presidency, etc. It's called "America's Presidency, Museum & Gallery in Missouri"........it's on the top floor of what was once a steak house...is non-profit...and (I think) just getting started....but has a couple of videos showing about the presidents and lots to walk around and read about. When I was there in early Dec. they had several of the first-ladies' Christmas trees on display the way they had been in the White House."
I appreciate the comment from 'Cliff' posted on the WolverNet blog in regard to my Dec. 29 post.
There is an Oklahoma TV program called 'Discover Oklahoma'. A weekly 'travel show' produced by Integris Health and shown in several TV markets over the state. They visit businesses, tourist spots, restaurants, out-of-the-way places. Last week they did a great 'bit' on Bianco's Restaurant right here in Lawton, America! Very good story, interviewed Rose (wife of founder - John - who is long deceased) at the restaurant and just a really good spot on how Rose ended up in Lawton from NY and how the restaurant came to be.
A popular pizza place since 1952, its still a favorite of us locals and those who come 'home' to visit. Business was already 'booming'....now we will have to wait for a table! <http://www.travelok.com/disc_ok/index.asp>
