“If you don’t have any charity in your heart,” legendary entertainer Bob Hope once said, “you have the worst kind of heart trouble.”
That is certainly not the case with Sam Doss and Janet Cordell, honored last week by Enid YWCA. Doss was the group’s Volunteer of the Year, while Cordell was named Woman of the Year.
Doss has worked sorting donations in My Sister’s Closet and has become a Sexual Assault Response Advocate.
Cordell has been a registered nurse more than 40 years and teaches Health Services Program at Autry Technology Center. She serves on YWCA’s Sexual Abuse Task Force and volunteered as a prenatal instructor for the Maternity Residency Program. That is in addition to her involvement in many other community activities.
Thumbs up to a pair of giving, selfless women whose hearts are definitely in the right place.
“Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?” The children at Sandbox Learning Center may or may not be contrary, or named Mary, but they certainly can answer the question from the old nursery rhyme. Their garden grows quite well, thank you.
That is because of the help of Lowe’s, Lavicky Sand Co. and Humalfa LLC of Shattuck, who donated materials to help the local childcare center plant a garden.
The children, ages 4 to 10, helped in nearly every aspect of planting and caring for the garden, which features tomato plants, pumpkin vines, grape vines and a blueberry bush. The children showed off their garden Saturday at an open house. The project gave them hands-on experience and showed them the joys and benefits of hard work.
Thumbs up to these businesses, and the children of Sandbox, for making this special garden grow.
Since 1946, a non-profit organization has advocated for American air power and a strong national defense.
We hear a lot of gloom and doom about small-town Oklahoma.

Gambling with nature
Farmers are gamblers.
I think, therefore I am shocked at how some people think
I like thinking. I spend a lot of time thinking. In fact, I get paid for it.
When you think about it, writing is merely semi-organized thinking. The rest is just typing.
Thinking is hard work. Really. Even when you are not thinking about working.

God is a covenant God, my friends
My sister started singing, “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gona do when they come for you?” Not funny, Donna! On top of that, my sons-in-law, all of them, just happened to be driving by. Well, this is one opportunity they won’t soon forget.

America: Braving the ‘Dirty 30s’
The stories I most remember are of my dad and his parents enduring the Great Depression of the 1930s.
It seems they lived right in the heart of the Dust Bowl as it savaged the Southern Plains, making the Great Depression all the more overwhelming for those who endured.
OCES has been a valuable resource for 100 years
