I love radio, but I love it because it keeps me connected to people. I've done almost every job in the business and now I have the honor of working at this station! I am married to a wonderful (now) retired MSgt in the Air Force. The Darin makes regular appearances on my show, but he usually refuses to talk, so I have to tell all his stories for him. Dillon is my stepson and his stories are also familiar to those that listen regularly. Dillon could be the next me. He LOVES being on the radio. Most days, I work from home and do my show with a portable studio that was built for me since I am now semi-retired (at the ripe old age of 34). So, if you hear the dishwasher, the washing machine or the sounds of a 9 year old with his Lego, it's all good!
Severe Weather Ain’t No Joke in OK
It's severe weather season again in Texoma. Many of us who have lived here all our lives can take it for granted or dismiss it as 'normal.' It only takes one 'abnormal' day to change your life and, whether you're new to the area or have lived here forever, you need to make sure you are prepared for severe weather...
The “Other” Lawtons, USA
We're going on a little adventure to Lawton. Not Lawton, OK but some of the other Lawtons in the United States. Did you know there is a Lawton, PA? Lawton, IA, WV, ND, KY, KS MI? There are and we wanted to know a little more about each of them...
Sign Up To Recycle with City of Lawton
We're still a little miffed that we have to pay for the privilege of saving our world, but we'll do what it takes and you should, too. It's time to sign up for the City of Lawton Recycling Program. Instead of charging everyone who doesn't recycle, you will be charged $7...
It’s Time To Quit . . .Facebook
Addicts everywhere are freaking out, but new science says it is time to quit Facebook. Why? Because you need to be happy and Facebook doesn't give you that.
Holidays on a Budget: Gifts
We're on a budget this year. With a truck we had to half finance / half pay for and a surgery that was unexpected, money is tight this year. I'm pretty creative when it comes to the budget and I also understand most people don't start shopping for Christmas presents in July (like, um, I do). So, we're tightening the belt at our house this Christmas and thought we would share some great ideas on
Planning It: 40 Days Till Christmas Countdown
A plan is the best way to have fun -- say the nerds of the world. I'm firmly in that camp so I have a plan this season to make the most of the holidays, eliminate the stress and manage the budget. Thankfully, there are lots of ways to do that in Southwest Oklahoma. So, here's my holiday bucket list. Feel free to use it -- and put it to work to manage your stress and maximize your fun this holi
No Black Cats For Halloween
It sounded kinda strange that Lawton Animal Welfare and the Humane Society would restrict the adoption of black cats till after Halloween. Recently published news reports site the idea that some people may abuse or sacrifice these animals around the holiday.
Trick or Treat Etiquette
This year, with Halloween on a Saturday, there will be lots of treats to be given and a few tricks to remember when knocking on a new door. The 'official' Trick or Treat times in Lawton are from 6p-8p. That's when the most candy will be available and the most people will be watching for your little ghost or ghoul.
What am I Reading Now? Liz Ryan’s Fall Book List
Last Saturday, after we had a delicious dinner somewhere around Central Mall, we decided to forgo a movie and take a trip to the bookstore. It's something I can do for hours but the boys are a little less patient so I convinced them with the promise I would buy them a "graphic novel" -- or comic book as they are known to non geeky people.
Latchkey Kids in Oklahoma — Safety and More
Did you know Oklahoma has no age limit on leaving kids home alone? Neither does Texas.
West Nile Virus Found In Wichita Falls
It's here again. The Wichita county Public Health Department is saying they have their first case this year of West Nile in Wichita Falls. The person infected already has a compromised immune system and that is really dangerous. But, where there is one mosquito with West Nile, there are more and that puts you and your family at risk...
See Guardians of the Galaxy Friday Night in Lawton — FREE EVENT
I love that our community does this. Holiday in the Park is hosting a free showing of Guardians of the Galaxy Friday Night (the 14th). Movie in the Park will be at Elmer Thomas Park (Northwest 3rd and Ferris). The movie begins around dusk but it's a great family-friendly atmosphere with concessions for sale...
