    School is out, so be careful when you see children playing near the road, that one doesn’t run out into the road chasing a ball or something. Many times, children get engrossed in their play and forget to watch for traffic.

    Our heart goes out to the many in Oklahoma who lost so much: loved ones above all else as well as their homes and places of business. Not only in Oklahoma but in other states there has been tremendous damage from storms.
