Arrival of Medical Marijuana Raises More Questions Than Answers The Oklahoma landscape changed overnight on June 26, 2018. Residents went to bed in a state where marijuana was illegal and woke up to a new reality: Oklahomans will soon be able to grow or purchase marijuana for medical purposes. It’s a change Bud Scott, the Executive Director of promedical marijuana group New Health Solutions Oklahoma, said should not come as a surprise. “We knew from our research and conversations that a majority of Oklahomans were in favor of medical marijuana,” said Scott. “Everyone has a cousin, an aunt, a daughter, or a friend who has dealt with a medical condition that could be helped by medical marijuana.” State Question 788 was approved by a 57%-to-43% margin, a gap that Scott thinks would be much larger if the language in the question had been more precise. “We think it would have passed by more than 70% if the language had been clearer,” said Scott. “But it was something that was drafted by marijuana activists for activists, and we saw from the very beginning that the way it was written was going to create problems with the implementation.”

PROBLEMS, PROBLEMS, PROBLEMS As it turns out, the word “problems” has been something of an understatement. No one could have predicted the crazy turn of events that followed the passage of SQ 788. And by extension, no one can really predict how and when the tangled and confusing path to implementation of the state’s new medical marijuana law will be resolved. In short, no one knows for sure when Oklahomans will actually be able to purchase medical marijuana. “That’s the million-dollar question,” said Scott, “In all honesty, I think we’ll be lucky to have products in a dispensary by January.” State House representatives Chris Kannady (R-Oklahoma City) and Mark McBride (R-Moore) agree with Scott’s assessment on all counts: it’s a confusing scenario made even more unclear by the actions of state agencies and individuals working for those agencies. Kannady, who is also a lawyer, agreed with Scott on the problematic language in SQ 788. “People need to understand that this was not written by the legislature or vetted by people who were interested in getting the language right,” said Kannady. “But it did pass, and that’s the will of the people, so now it falls on our shoulders to properly implement it. That means regulations and rules that will facilitate the law as it is intended to be.” McBride said, “It passed by the will of the people, and that’s important to understand. But even though it passed, it was, nearly everyone outside of the activists would agree, so poorly written that we’ll have a lot of work to do to implement it.” The Oklahoma State Department of Health’s first attempts at creating rules and regulations resulted in a dumpster-fire of controversy that ignited anger across the state for those who were on either side of the medical marijuana vote. It also ended up costing the State Health Department’s general counsel her job (see the Dazed & Confused Timeline on page 11). Scott believes that people have a right to be angry. “The Department of Health did overstep their authority,” said Scott. “You had the State Dept of Health intentionally and knowingly adopt rules that were impermissible. You had a governor intentionally and knowingly sign off on what were clearly impermissible rules. They knew what they were doing was beyond the scope and they did it anyway.” In fact, it would appear that the only people in the state that didn’t think the State Department of Health and the governor were overstepping their authority were actually the State Department of Health and the governor. “It was a messy as you could have expected it to be,” said Kannady. “The Health Department counsel advised them against taking action, but they went ahead and did it anyway.” McBride agrees that the process has been unnecessarily messy so far, but adds that the language in State Question 788 virtually guarantees a troublesome journey to implementation. “Even if we had done exactly what the initiative petition says, it was still going to take months to implement,” said McBride. “You’re going to legal challenges on both sides because neither side is going to like how it’s handled.” AUGUST 2018 | MOORE MONTHLY | 9


UNTANGLING THE MESS There’s not a clear and easy road to that moment when the first medical marijuana dispensary opens its doors in Oklahoma. As Scott, one of the key pro-medical marijuana figures in the state noted, it would be surprising to see a dispensary open before January of 2019. McBride believes that’s an accurate time frame. “Getting dispensaries open in 2018 will be a stretch,” said McBride. “I think the next 30-to60 days will tell us where we’re going to end up. I think sometime in 2019 would be reasonable to expect.” However, Kannady notes that even after the dispensaries are open, there’s a high chance the state legislature will be dealing with changes and regulations for years to come. He points to the fact that state lawmakers are still wrestling with alcohol regulations 85 years after Prohibition was repealed in 1933. “State Question 792, the alcohol question, was voted in two years ago and look at how that’s been handled,” said Kannady. “We’re still working out the kinks to make sure it’s implemented correctly and as the people want us to do. Now you’ve got SQ 788 and the use of medical marijuana in a state where marijuana has never been legal. So it will take time to iron out the details and make this right.” Scott believes the answer lies in a special session of the legislature, something he and his group have been pushing for even before the June 26 election day. “Everyone who was campaigning for 788, including ourselves, recognized and openly admitted during the campaign that there would be a need for supplemental legislation and regulations,” said Scott. “We proposed pretty comprehensive legislation to address these issues not because we want to over-regulate this but because we want to make it consistent with what we see around the rest of the country.” Scott believes that using the legislation, his group has compiled a brief special legislative session could quickly resolve most of the issues. That proposed legislation is also based on what has worked in other states where medical marijuana has been approved. “The legislation we’ve drafted and submitted to the public for response was based upon lessons learned and policies implemented in Michigan, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington,” said Scott. “We proposed pretty comprehensive legislation to address these issues not because we want to over-regulate this but because we want to make it consistent with what we see around the rest of the country.” Fortunately, according to Kannady, State Question 788 does allow for these types of changes to be made. “Because the change in the state question was statutory the legislature has the ability to go in and make interpretations as to what is in the best interest of the state and the people,” said Kannady. “I anticipate just like anything else that there are going to be a lot of nuances and a lot of things that we are going to have to address for several years to come as we deal with this.” McBride agrees that the legislature will likely be dealing with the issue for years to come, but hopes for a quick resolution that will get SQ 788 into motion. “I hope we’re not working on this for years,” said McBride. “I would prefer that it be pretty cut and dried so that we could get it done and implemented.” 10 | MOORE MONTHLY | AUGUST 2018


How Medical Marijuana Will (Probably ) Work Step 1: You visit your doctor who will make the determination that using medical marijuana would be a practical course of treatment for your condition. Step 2:

Your doctor would recommend that you be given a medical marijuana license which would be good for two years. That recommendation would most likely be submitted directly to the State Department of Health by your doctor.

Step 3: You, the patient, submit an application for a medical marijuana license to the State Department of Health. There’s a 14-day turnaround on the SDH reviewing your application and a $100 fee for regular patients and a $20 fee for individuals on Medicaid, Medicare, or SoonerCare. Applicants will need to prove state residency and must be 18 years or older. Step 4: Once approved, the State Department of Health issue a medical marijuana license that will be good for two years. The State Department of Health will keep a digital photograph of the license holder on file along with a unique 24-character identification number. Step 5: Once you have your license you can begin to grow your own

DAZED & CONFUSED: A Timeline of the Wacky Events Related to State Question 788 April 11, 2016 – SQ 799, Initiative Petition 412 is filed with the Oklahoma Secretary of State June 26, 2018 – Oklahoma voters approve SQ 788 with 56.86% (507,582 votes) Yes votes and 43.14% (385,176 votes) No votes. Pro-medical marijuana supporters immediately call for a special legislative session to meet the challenging timelines for implementation of the new law.

July 9, 2018 – The Oklahoma State Medical Association criticizes the State Department of Health Rules and demands three more rules be added: banning all smokable forms of cannabis, require pharmacists to be present at all dispensaries, and limit the number of dispensaries to 50. July 10, 2018 – The Oklahoma Board of Health passed the State Department of Health regulations. It also added regulations banning smokable forms of marijuana and requiring a pharmacist be on-site at dispensaries.

SO… HOW WILL MEDICAL MARIJUANA LOOK IN MOORE? Renee Harper is a registered nurse and co-owner of Green Hope Wellness in Moore. She and her partner, Amanda Burtone opened the CBD business in March 2018. Harper said that for her the business is more of a mission to help people beat an addiction to opiods. “We were seeing patients in the clinic, and they were so sick and tired of doctors prescribing opiods,” said Harper. “We had tons of people that were coming in here looking for help.” Harper says that CBD products, which have the psychoactive ingredient of cannabis, THC, removed, have been a significant help for many. “We sell 100% THC free CBD which is made by Can Tek Labs right down on I-35,” said Harper. “There are tons of people who don't want to be high from the THC, so we have a huge clientele for the THC-free products.” Now that medical marijuana is legal in Oklahoma she anticipates being able to help even more patients. But she does agree that there will be some bumps along the way as regulations and rules are implemented. “I’m thinking most doctors will be a little tentative about recommendations at first,” said Harper. “I know that doctors have to be certified before they can make recommendations, but I’m not sure where that certification is going to come from.” Harper and her partner plan to open a medical marijuana dispensary in a separate location from the CBD business. They plan for the store to have an upscale, professional look that provides safe and reliable products. “The dispensaries will most likely have ATM’S because banking regulations will require that transactions are conducted with cash,” said Harper. “There will also be security cameras and bullet-proof glass in place along with security guards and vaults to keep the medical marijuana products separate and protected.” In the meantime, Renee hopes that everyone will begin to do their homework so that they can understand what she says are the apparent benefits of plant-based medication. “I think the thing that medical marijuana does for people is that allows them to take control of their health,” said Harper. “There is such a stigmatism with the use of medical marijuana, CBD, and CBG that I think we’re going to overcome over the next few years because unlike pharmaceuticals, you don’t develop a tolerance to it where you need more and more. It actually works backward so that as your body’s own endocannabinoid system starts working properly, you actually need the product less and less.” When it comes to the impact of State Question 788 on students and teachers, Moore Public Schools Superintendent Robert Romines said administrators and school attorneys are paying close attention to what is happening with state agencies and lawmakers. “We are waiting to see what the final rules are from our state lawmakers,” said Romines. “ We will not move forward until they come up with firm guidelines.” Part of the issue for Moore Public Schools is making allowances for staff who legally use marijuana for treatment of various problems. Romines said that, as in all other medical circumstances, MPS plans to follow doctor’s orders with some degree of flexibility. “There is a good chance that modifications will have to be made in the event of prescribed medications,” said Romines. “The District currently has employees that require modifications and restrictions due to many reasons.”

12 | MOORE MONTHLY | AUGUST 2018


As for students who are legally using marijuana under the recommendation of a prescription, Romines said the MPS attorneys are developing a policy for students on issues like participation in extracurricular activities and or graduation exercises. Overall, Romines believes Moore Public Schools will be able to adapt to this new law as more information becomes available. “I do not anticipate problems but know there will be learning curves as we move through this unknown territory,” said Romines. “We will review other state statutes, policies, and procedures (with help from legal) once we receive more direction from our state government and State Board of Health.” On the law enforcement side of the equation in Moore, Sergeant Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department said he and his fellow officers aren’t really anticipating any significant changes in department policy. “We really don’t look at it as being different than any other type of medication,” said Lewis. “That’s really what it’s supposed to be: a form of medication and that’s how we will treat it.” Lewis said he does want everyone to remember that officers treat intoxication or “being under the influence” the same, regardless of whether the intoxicating substance is alcohol, a legally-prescribed drug, or an illegal substance. “If someone has a prescription or a license that they are supposed to take it then we have no problem with that at all,” said Lewis. “If it impairs their ability to drive a vehicle then that’s different. You can’t do that. Even now you can get a DUI for driving under the influence of marijuana.” As lawmakers work on regulations, rules, and implementation of medical marijuana, Lewis said Moore police officers will be working on becoming more adept at understanding the effects of marijuana and the change in laws. “We are sending some officers to different schools that will help us recognize the effects of medical marijuana that isn’t smoked because there won’t be an odor there to identify it,” said Lewis. “I’m sure there will be other restrictions such as you won’t be able to be in a park smoking or under the influence in public, and that’s something we’ll address as it comes. But I don’t think it will be a whole lot of difference than the way we enforce alcohol laws.”

MOST COMMON TYPES OF CANNABINOIDS FOUND IN CANNABIS Cannabis produces a variety of compounds which are called cannabanoids. There’s not a consensus on exactly how many cannabanoids are produced because some of them are present in such a low level they are difficult to detect. Here is a list of the major cannabanoids with a brief description of their effects.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) The most abundant cannabinoid present in marijuana, THC is responsible for cannabis’ most well-known psychoactive effects. THC acts as a partial agonist at the CB1 and CB2 receptors. The compound is a mild analgesic, or painkiller, and cellular research has shown that it has antioxidant activity.

Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA) CBDA, similar to THCA, is the main constituent in cannabis with elevated CBD levels. CBDA selectively inhibits the COX-2 enzyme, helping cannabis’ anti-inflammatory effects.

Cannabidiol (CBD) CBD has tremendous medical potential. This is particularly true when the correct ratio of CBD to THC is applied to treat a particular condition. CBD acts as an antagonist at both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, yet it has a low binding affinity for both. This suggests that CBD’s mechanism of action is mediated by other receptors in the brain and body.

Cannabinol (CBN) CBN is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid that is produced from the degradation of THC. There is usually very little to no CBN in a fresh plant. CBN acts as a weak agonist at both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, with greater affinity for CB2 receptors than CB1. The degradation of THC into CBN is often described as creating a sedative effect, known as a “couch lock.”

Cannabigerol (CBG) A non-psychoactive cannabinoid, CBG’s antibacterial effects can alter the overall effects of cannabis. CBG is thought to kill or slow bacterial growth, reduce inflammation, (particularly in its acidic CBGA form,) inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells, and promote bone growth. It acts as a low-affinity antagonist at the CB1 receptor. CBG pharmacological activity at the CB2 receptor is currently unknown.

Cannabichromene (CBC) CBC is most frequently found in tropical cannabis varieties. CBC is known to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells, and promote bone growth. The effects of CBC appear to be mediated through non-cannabinoid receptor interactions.

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) THCV is a minor cannabinoid found in only some strains of cannabis. The only structural difference between THCV and THC is the presence of a propyl (3 carbon) group, rather than a pentyl (5 carbon) group, on the molecule. Though this variation may seem subtle, it causes THCV to produce very different effects than THC. These effects include a reduction in panic attacks, suppression of appetite, and the promotion of bone growth. THCV acts as an antagonist at the CB1 receptor and a partial agonist at the CB2 receptor.

Cannabidivarin (CBDV) Like THCV, CBDV differs from CBD only by the substitution of a pentyl (5 carbon) for a propyl (3 carbon) sidechain. Although research on CBDV is still in its initial stages, recent studies have shown promise for its use in the management of epilepsy. This is due to its action at TRPV1 receptors and modulation of gene expression.

Legacy of a Pioneer Pastor

matthesen farm

wedding photo

ewald matthesen and wife

Mid-nineteenth Century America beckoned irresistibly to the European and Asian worlds. With open arms, it promised unlimited frontiers, freedom of movement and speech, personal prosperity as a result of hard work and diligence, lush forests and fertile soil, and room—plenty of room. Ewald (Ed) Matthesen was born in Nesse, Germany, in 1864, and spent 10 years in school where a daily hour of Bible study was required. During this time, he developed a great love and familiarity with the scriptures and a life-long habit of study. In 1880, at the age of 16, he immigrated to America from his own country, where there was a mandatory military conscription. His first job in America was with a factory in Illinois, making $4.00 a week and spending $3.75 for room and board. After several jobs in several different locations,

he settled in 1893 southeast of Moore, where he lived and farmed until shortly before his death in 1948. The original home still exists in the center of the house of his grandson, Carroll Matthesen, who lives on the farm. Shortly after the turn of the century, Ed Matthesen felt a call to preach. He helped to establish Church of God congregations in Capitol Hill, Bessie, Shawnee and Oklahoma City. He pastored the congregation in Moore for over 25 years. He was a big man, physically and spiritually, with a big bushy moustache that moved and fluttered expressively as the words of comfort, instruction and warning rolled out beneath it in a rumbling German-laden accent. His knowledge of the Bible was phenomenal, his ability to quote scripture remarkable, and his faith firmly grounded. He was known to be

a man of great faith, great compassion, and great integrity. Once in the middle of the night, a man on horseback pounded on Ed’s door to cry out that his wife needed help. Matthesen hitched his team to the buggy and drove 20 miles out into the darkness to minister to someone in need. This was repeated many times and places. His own congregation depended greatly on his faith and his kind and loving concern and guidance. Ed Matthesen was noted for his enthusiasm, friendly nature and brotherly love. He believed that all men are created equal, and was a friend to all. Men who might not agree with his philosophies still respected and admired him. He firmly believed that studying and adhering to the teachings of the Bible make a better person, a better neighbor and a better citizen.

He was staunch in his appreciation and love for his country, his state and his town. He was proud of the progress Moore made, especially the paved roads, and looked forward to the day when there would be traffic signals in Moore. He was “a man of God,” one among many pioneer ministers who helped shape the character, integrity and destiny of the people of their day, and whose legacies still live on long after them. Note: This edition of Sketches of Moore was first published in a previous issue of Moore Monthly.

How Do I Get Better at Conflict? Like other challenges, if we have an appropriate mindset, understand the dynamics, know thyself and develop skills – we can get better! 1. The mindset we have when we hear the word “conflict” which was obtained when we were very young may now be a limiting belief and may not serve us well, in our current situation.Please know this about conflict: • Conflict is inevitable. • Conflict is inevitable, but combat is optional. • Conflict is like "fire." Managed well, it is beneficial. • Not all conflict is negative. • "We don't have a conflict here. “Really means, "We avoid dealing with conflict at all costs." 2. Conflict is a process: • Event/hot spots – it begins with an event and often involves hot sport or triggers somewhat unique to each of us. • Conflict response (constructive/destructive) – we have a choice between the event/hotspot and whether we decide to respond in a constructive or destructive manner. • Problem-solving focus/person-focused – we can choose a problem-solving focus in our response to conflict or a person focused where we blame and take the conflict as a personal attack. 3. There are identifiable Conflict Levels: • Level 1: Differences - See a situation differently. Understand other's perception. No real discomfort. • Level 2: Misunderstandings - What is he thinking? • Level 3: Disagreements - See things differently and feel discomfort that the other person disagrees. • Level 4: Discord - Discomfort in interaction, as well as issue • Level 5: Polarization - Begin recruiting others to join their cause. How we choose to address conflict at a level listed above, dramatically affects whether that conflict will escalate or de-escalate. 4. There are Benefits of Conflict: • Stimulates creativity/brainstorming • Improves teamwork • Encourages listening • Promotes reflective thinking • Yields new information • Signals change is coming 5. There can also be a cost of conflict: • Poor quality decisions • Poisons relationships • Disrupts productivity • Inhibits communication 6. Below are conflict triggers that are unique in each of us – often there are one or two which really set us off when we experience these behaviors in others, as they affect us! These triggers are often very much in alignment with our core values and hit us at a deep level, quickly. • Unreliable • Overly analytical • Unappreciative • Aloof • Micro-managing • Self-centered • Abrasive • Untrustworthy • Hostile

24 | MOORE MONTHLY | AUGUST 2018

Conflict Triggers: • Which of these tend to trigger you? • Which of these throws you off balance? • What makes these triggers for you? • How can you "cool down" when you are getting hot under the collar? 7. Which of these conflict styles do you tend to gravitate toward? • Win at all cost – win/lose • Peace at all cost – refuse to engage • Give in – lose/win, abdicate • Split the difference - compromise • Win/Win – collaborate, come up with a third solution better than the one either of you brought to the encounter 8. Below are some Constructive Responses to Conflict: • Count to ten • Just the Facts - Joe Friday of Dragnet • Perspective taking • Brainstorming • Expressing emotions • Reaching out • Reflective thinking • Delaying responses • Adapting 9. Below are some Destructive Responses to Conflict: • Winning at all costs • Displaying anger • Demeaning others • Retaliating • Avoiding • Yielding • Hiding emotions • Self-criticism Conflict at its root level brings out the flight or fight choices we made in pre-historic times often determined life or death. The awareness of conflict triggers and techniques helpful for us to manage conflict and allow us to de-escalate, remain logical, not take the conflict personally, flood our bodies with cortisol (the bodies stress hormone), re-route blood away from the prefrontal cortex (portion of the brain responsible for high level cognitive behavior, decision making and moderating social behavior) before our amygdala hi-jacks our ability to reason and make emotional choices which escalate conflict. The Amygdala (the ancient portion of our brain responsible for detecting fear and preparing for emergency events) makes a decision fast (you ended up eaten in pre-historic days if you paused to consider whether that saber tooth tiger might mean you harm) but not always ones which serve us well in today’s world. Conflict can be a good thing, conflict will happen, and the skills which allow us to make good decisions when conflict occurs can be learned! You have arrived at your new normal when it becomes who you are without thinking. Then it is simply, normal. Any change – large, small, chosen or happened upon us – will have points of tension. Leaving the past in search of the future is never easy, even when the past is a choice. Our job is to reach out and gain the support we need as we move from change to transition to our new normal. The key is to effectively assess where we are in the process and then move forward with the right support, at the right time, in the right manner.

When it comes to those 60 and over, a whopping 80 percent say the fashion industry serves younger consumers better. They pass similarly harsh judgment on the technology industry (70 percent), the sports industry (72 percent) and the entertainment industry (60 percent). Despite the massive and growing size of the 60-plus population, which already accounts for more than $7.1 trillion of annual spending in the U.S., we don’t see a lot of products and services being developed specifically with the interests and needs of older people in mind. So all you grandparents and older mentors out there let the younger generation know there is plenty of entrepreneurship and inventing to be had to make us who are already 60 or older even more satisfied with our lives!

301 N Eastern Ave. Moore, OK 73160 • 405-799-9919

People 60 and older report higher life satisfaction than those who are younger. Younger people have far more to look forward to than they expect when it comes to growing older. According to a new AARP survey that compares beliefs about aging among different groups, the youngest adults are the most pessimistic about advancing years, while the oldest pain the rosiest picture. Nearly half (47 percent) of those ages 18 to 39 believe it’s “normal to be depressed when you are old.” Not so, according to those 60 and up. Only 28 percent agree that being depressed is normal, and a mere 10 percent say old age is a “depressing stage of life.” And who is the least satisfied with their lives? The youngest group: 40 percent say they are “not too/Not at all satisfied” with their lives, compared to 33 percent of those 60 and over and 28 percent of those ages 40 to 59. The findings of this new survey are further confirmation of something a lot of people, especially older people, know instinctively, and that is that our upper ages can be a great time. While older adults have an upbeat estimation of their own lives, they take a dimmer view of how consumer-facing industries treat them.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS & PERFORMANCES - AUGUST 2018

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FRED JONES JR. MUSEUM OF ART THE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA Visual Voices: Contemporary Chickasaw Art June 8-Sept. 9, 2018 - Nancy Johnston Records Gallery Visual Voices: Contemporary Chickasaw Art offers celebratory and mysterious, thought-provoking, and critical two-dimensional and three-dimensional works, including abstract and experimental contemporary Chickasaw art. This traveling exhibition offers an opportunity to view recent works by leading and emerging artists of the Chickasaw Nation. The artworks analyze the complex relationship between contemporary Chickasaw life and rich tribal history and culture. Each artist demonstrates a personal approach. Many of the artists are inspired by traditional Chickasaw elements of design and render them using contemporary materials and aesthetics to create an innovative visual language. Others investigate tribal stories, belief systems, or family histories and traditions, and how these relate to present-day Chickasaw life. With more than 65 artworks reflecting a wide variety of themes, techniques and methods, the exhibition finds balance in the artists’ strong connection to tribal identity as well as his or her distinctly individual and cultural roots. The exhibit is organized by concepts and subjects important to the artists, including personal and collective identities; seasonal and nature-related themes (including social and environmental dimensions of human relationships with the earth); place and belonging (including artists’ relationship to their current and historic homelands); as well as cross-cultural relationships and influences characteristic of the Chickasaw artists’ experience today. Visual Voices: Contemporary Chickasaw Art is made possible by grants provided by the Chickasaw Nation and the National Endowment for the Arts, and by assistance from The American Indian Cultural Center and Museum. Seeds of Being: A Project of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Native American Art & Museum Histories Seminar Mary LeFlore and Richard H. Clements Family Gallery Molly and Jim Crawley Gallery James T. Bialac Gallery of Native American Art June 12–Dec. 30, 2018 As carriers of life from one generation to the next, seeds provide the possibility of growth and endurance, but they do not achieve this on their own. Just as seeds require nourishment to flourish, art needs to be engaged by the viewer in order to thrive. While seeds themselves originate from a specific point in time—the moment they were harvested—they also signify the past, present, and future folded together, as the seeds from a past crop are stored in the present to be used for the future. Seeds of Being examines various ways these artistic seeds benefit Indigenous groups in North America through the artists’ abilities to nurture, adapt, and envision their communities’ ongoing well-being. Curated by students enrolled in the Native American Art & Museum Studies Seminar, made possible by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and the OU School of Visual Arts present a public lecture by Kathleen Ash-Milby, Associate Curator at the National Museum of the American Indian in New York. Ash-Milby’s keynote talk, Native Art in the 21st Century: The Future is Now, will acknowledge both historic shifts and progress in the field, as well as challenges for the future. The lecture is supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Native American Art Studies Symposium 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15 Mary Eddy and Fred Jones Auditorium The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and the OU School of Visual Arts present new scholarship on Indigenous museology, curatorial practice, and art history. Join us for a series of paper

presentations from nationally-selected undergraduate and graduate students. Schedule and speakers TBA. The symposium is supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Space Burial, January 26 – Sept 2. Ellen and Richard L. Sandor Gallery. “Ancient Egyptians occasionally buried their dead in boats. These were not caskets or sarcophagi in the form of boats, but real, functional wooden boats. Though buried deep underground, the understanding was that these boats would carry the departed on an afterlife journey. This use of a functional form exclusively for storytelling has inspired my own quest to imagine a modern-day burial ceremony. For this installation, slivers modeled from 86-foot diameter satellite dishes of the Very Large Array in New Mexico intersect the gallery space, forming pattern-infused canopies. Derived from the famous cosmic microwave background image, shadows of the pattern broadcast throughout the space, alluding to the dish as an agent of travel through time and space. This installation evokes the use of satellite dishes as a burial object for a space-faring culture. Placed within a satellite dish and buried, the dead's afterlife journey to the stars is facilitated. Furthermore, this ceremony can be utilized on distant planets in order to facilitate the dead's afterlife journey back home, to Earth. Further thoughts about how ancient ceremonies inform our modern life are encouraged by the experience.” --Jesse Small

Johnnie’s Charcoal Broiler An old-time Oklahoma favorite has expanded to Moore, and we’re pretty excited about it. Johnnie’s Charcoal Broilers just added Moore to its locations, opening July 14 at 2305 S Telephone Rd. This is the latest in a long history of expansion for Johnnie’s, starting in September of 1971 at 1200 West Britton Rd. Many still remember the original Johnnie's location on Britton Road. It later moved to 2652 W Britton Rd., expanding to Edmond, South OKC, NW Expressway, and then adding Johnnie’s Expresses in Edmond, Norman, and OKC. A new location in Midwest City is set to open in October, and the NW Expressway location will have a new store opening in either March or April. Moore’s high school trifecta that boasts 25,000 kids was a huge draw for Johnnie’s which offers a real family environment said owner Rick Haynes. “We’re very community oriented, we do a Senior Special in the afternoons we do halfprice burgers for high school kids, we want to be community-minded, so we don’t serve alcohol,” Haynes said. The family focus isn’t surprising considering Johnnie is Rick’s dad. Johnnie Haynes' experience in the restaurant world began in California, after leaving home. After

returning to Oklahoma City and working at the Split-T—in its full boom during the fifties and sixties—Johnnie decided to try his own hand in the restaurant biz and opened the first location in 1971. And for Rick Haynes, the rest was history. “I’ve never had another job. I started in the seventh-grade bussing tables and been here ever since,” he said. The family touch is also evident in the food, which Rick refers to as quick serve instead of fast food. “There’s a lot of good competition out there, but we make everything in-house. We still use fresh burgers, we still cook over charcoal, we still make our own onion rings, cut French fries, we make our own soup, and make our own salad dressings. So everything we do is the old fashioned way, and we give a good product for a good price,” said Haynes. Johnnie’s also offers homemade pies and the world famous family recipe Johnnie’s sauce available for purchase in-store or online, coined by Johnnie himself. “We do a Johnnie’s sauce. It’s a real cooked sauce, not out of a jar that we just call Johnnie’s sauce. It’s a family recipe, and we cook it for about 4-6 hours a day. We call it hickory sauce, it’s not a barbecue sauce because it’s not sweet like barbecue it’s a little more of a smoky flavor.”

34 | MOORE MONTHLY | AUGUST 2018

Crowd favorites are the Caesar burger with (duh) Caesar dressing and the Theta burger WITH cheese. Not only are these Oklahoma staples, but Rick’s personal favorites of which he never tires. “Still to this day, I’m sixty years old, and I don’t work behind the counter per se very much anymore, we have nine restaurants and another one opening but if I go out of town when I get back I want to have a Theta with cheese and onion rings,” Haynes said. It seems that Haynes isn’t the only one that never tires of the atmosphere at Johnnie's. Many customers are known to eat at the restaurant multiple times a week and return for years. “I like the interaction with people, I like the fact that people love what you’re giving them. When people tell you they’ve been eating a Theta with cheese since they were in high school, or they grew up going here, and they bring their kids in, it just means a lot. It’s a family business that’s still owned by my family, so you know that’s really important. We employ 350 employees, some who’ve been with my family forty and 45 years, we have a cook that my dad hired when I was a senior in high school still with us,” Haynes said. “People come to work for us in high school and work for us through college, and then they leave and come back and bring their families to eat, so it means a lot to us. It means a lot to us to be in Oklahoma.”

Treating their customers as family is the ultimate goal according to Haynes who says good service is just as important as good food. “The most important thing in any restaurant is service, I mean you’ve got to have good food, but you’ve got to have good service. They’re going to remember the service. You’ve got to make people feel welcome and make them feel like they’re still taken care of, that’s why we still use the name system. You walk up and give your name instead of being assigned number 52.” Johnnie’s has in-house dining as well as a drive-through and private dining room for parties. Online ordering to forego waiting in line will be available this fall, and you can order Johnnies from both Postmates and Uber Eats, “so I can getcha anyway you want me to getcha,” Haynes says laughing. It’s never been easier to get your Oklahoma favorite: Theta burger with cheese, some fresh onion rings, and a chocolate shake. We’re Oklahomans that believe in Oklahoma and support the community, support our churches, support our schools, do a lot of charity events, so we’re just glad to be here because we’re part of the community.”

byte-sized tech by rob morris

Byte Size Tech: OEC Racing to Bring Fiber Internet to Area Way back in the 1930’s, the delivery of electricity to Americans was still a relatively newfangled thing. There were a handful of forprofit companies which were stringing wire to homes in Oklahoma. Unfortunately, there was little-to-no-profit to be found in bringing electricity to rural areas, so residents out “in the sticks” were left to fend for themselves. David Goodspeed, president of Oklahoma Electric Cooperative Fiber, says OEC was one of the member-owned “co-ops” that stepped in to bring electricity to those rural residents and is now following the same course in delivering not just high-speed internet to underserved areas, they’re bringing some of the fastest speeds on the planet to folks in the OEC area. “OEC is member-owned and memberbased,” said Goodspeed. “It’s unlike for-profits in that members have a vote and input on how things are done. The members elect board members, and then those board members elect the CEO. It’s just a normal business practice after that.” Goodspeed said OEC Fiber was founded under those same principles and an understanding that poor quality internet isn’t just a problem for rural residents, it’s also an issue for folks who live on the fringe of current coverage. “If you go just two miles east of OU you’ll find people who are either underserved by the current internet coverage or they have no internet at all,” said Goodspeed. OEC Social Marketing Manager, Kayla Brandt, said that just as the co-op did in the early days of electricity, OEC is stepping into the gap in a big way. “Our tagline is ‘Taking high-speed internet where no one else will,’” said Brandt. “We believe that everyone deserves quality internet and since a lot of the for-profit internet service providers are saying they’re not interested in providing coverage, OEC believes the right thing to do is find a way to make it happen.” Goodspeed said OEC is working to build out an ultra high-speed fiber internet system for the entire 45,000 member OEC community. Eventually, the service will also be offered to non-OEC members. “The estimated timeline to build out the system for our entire OEC network is five years,” said Goodspeed, “But we’re working hard to get it finished in four years.” OEC is partnering with another local company, Transtel, to build the system. Transtel’s offices, like OEC, are located in Norman. The company has been in telecommunications business since 1973 and has worked on projects across the United States and around the world. Goodspeed said a signifi38 | MOORE MONTHLY | AUGUST 2018

cant part of the story is that their team is an all-Oklahoma team. “We’re all a bunch of Oklahoma kids with Oklahoma roots who grew up and want to do something great for our neighbors,” said Goodspeed. Goodspeed said there are about nine construction crews currently at work. The plan is to connect the fiber network to the 21 OEC substations, located from Little Ax to Chickasha to Moore to Lexington. The work began on April 2 and is expected to be finished later this year. Once this initial phase is complete, Goodspeed said crews will begin to build out a system to homes through each five OEC “rings” “Right now crews are working in all five rings,” said Goodspeed. “So the fiber will be running on communication lines, and we’ll be able to drop fiber down directly to the side of a business, home, apartment, whatever the case might be.” Goodspeed points out that OEC’s fiber connection will be different than what is being offered by other internet service providers. Many of the for-profit internet providers will run fiber lines from their data centers to what are called “nodes.” This is called “Fiber-to-theNode” (FTTN). The connection between the node and homes, businesses, and/or apartments is often finished out with copper cables. Fiber lines can carry exponentially more data than copper cables. OEC plans to offer “Fiberto-the-Premises” (FTTP) which is a blanket term for Fiber-to-the-Home and Fiber-to-theBusiness. “We’re also taking fiber from the pole all the way to the side of the house and then also inside of the house,” said Goodspeed. “Copper might get you up to 250 megabytes of speed even though the fiber lines can carry 1 gigabyte. With OEC Fiber you’re not going to get any ‘up to speeds”, you’re going to get 999 megabytes of speed all the way to your house or office.” If you’re wondering what the difference is between 250 megabytes of speed and 1 gigabyte of speed, look at it this way: a two-hour high definition movie is about 3-to-4.5GB in size. Here’s a look at the difference in download speeds:

Size 3-4.5GB

1Mbps 6 hours

5Mbps 72 minutes

“Smartphones will be the standard of the future,” said Goodspeed. “They’ll include everything from alarm systems and smart appliances to Alexa and Apple TV devices. It will all be hooked up to wifi and the internet and will demand a lot of bandwidth.” Bandwidth will be necessary to customers, but Brandt says fiber internet service also prevents the amount of data loss commonly associated with the current broadband internet. “With fiber, there’s almost no data loss when you’re shooting information up and down those data lines,” said Brandt. “Without that data loss, you’re not experiencing leakage of information along the way. So what we’re sending, the customer is receiving it all.” Then there’s the cost for service. OEC is still working on their price packages, but Brandt and Goodspeed say the co-op’s pricing structure will definitely be fair. “We’re viewing the building the buildout of OEC Fiber through the same sort of lens as our predecessors did with OEC electric back in 1937,” said Brandt. “It’s all about improving their quality of life through the high-speed internet in the same way we did with electricity 81-years ago.” “We’re looking at price points under $100 with constant upload and download speeds and no data cap,” said Goodspeed. “What we’re doing is eliminating data caps and saying, ‘If the price point is $50, then it’s $50 dollars, and you can take all you want.’ We’re not going to slow you down or throttle your service.” Although no firm timetable has been set for homes to begin receiving OEC’s fiber internet service, Goodspeed says the co-op hopes it will become available later this year. “In addition to physically building the system, we still have to figure out pricing, marketing, and billing,” said Goodspeed. “It’s actually kind of a race to see if construction gets there first, or billing gets their first, or marketing gets there first.” For more information on OEC Fiber, you can visit: OECFiber.com and sign up for updates.

Goodspeed said that kind of speed is going to become more and more critical as smart homes become the norm.

Pediatric Hospitalists One program that allows our community members to receive a very high level of care, right here at home is Norman Regional’s Pediatric Hospitalist program. Pediatric hospitalists are hospital-based pediatricians who provide care for children from infants to teenagers. Our Pediatric Hospitalists, Dr. Kate Cook and Dr. Timothy Laughy are board-certified pediatricians who provide immediate and ongoing care 24 hours a day, seven days a week to children ages 0-18 who are admitted to the hospital.

Outside the Hospital Norman Regional Kids treats children outside our hospital doors as well! Moore Pediatrics has been providing outpatient pediatric care for the Moore community and is the home of Dr. Reba Beard, Dr. Betty Harmon and physician assistant, Laura Shao. Moore Pediatrics is located on the fourth floor of Norman Regional Moore, 700 S. Telephone Rd., and is welcoming new patients.

Partnering with Schools During last year’s severe flu season, Norman Regional partnered with elementary schools in Moore, Norman and Noble and a company called XENEX to deploy germ-zapping robots to combat the spread of flu through our schools. And coming up this fall, our Norman Regional volunteers, will host its “Kids Are Special People” program at both Norman Regional Moore and Norman Regional Hospital. Kids Are Special People is a day-long, educational field trip for local grade-schoolers. Children visit the hospitals to learn about health and wellness topics such as recognizing stroke symptoms, exercise, food and nutrition, tobacco and safety. This is the second year that NRHS will team up with Moore Public Schools and Project SEARCH to offer on-the-job experience for high school senior students with disabilities.

This partnership has been an exciting and life-changing experience that provides student-interns a great opportunity to learn valuable job skills that prepare them for permanent employment in our community.

Obstetrical Emergency Department Another new hospital program offering is the Norman Regional Obstetrical Emergency Department (OB ED). The OB ED is designed specifically for expectant mothers who experience urgent and/or emergent medical issues during pregnancy. Norman Regional added obstetric hospitalists to our Women’s & Children’s services. Obstetrical hospitalists are physicians who specialize in obstetrical and gynecological care and treatment of patients admitted to the hospital. During the course of a pregnancy, a woman may be referred to or seek care at the OB ED for evaluation and/or treatment of potential urgent medical conditions. The OB ED allows a mother and her unborn child to be evaluated by a boardcertified OB Hospitalist physician 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The OB hospitalist will work closely with a woman’s primary OB/GYN physician and the nursing staff to provide appropriate treatment. For example, if a woman thinks she is going into labor early, she can go to the Norman Regional HealthPlex OB ED to be evaluated. If necessary, the OB hospitalist could deliver her baby if the woman’s regular physician wasn’t able to attend the birth. OB hospitalists could also deliver a baby of a woman who hasn’t been seeing an OB/GYN physician throughout her pregnancy. The Obstetrical Emergency Department joins a comprehensive array of experts and services at the Norman Regional HealthPlex. It is also home to a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Labor and Delivery, Mother and Baby, lactation services, state-of-the-art robotic surgery capabilities and many more Women’s and Children’s services. At Norman Regional we’re getting us all to a healthier place including kids!

Norman Regional Health System recently combined its children’s services under a new name, Norman Regional Kids. This change better reflects the growth of children’s services at Norman Regional.

Healthy Lunches Goodbye summer and hello school! With school just around the corner one can expect to become busy and find the need to develop a routine. Between making breakfast, packing lunch, going to after school activities, working, doing homework, making dinner, etc., it may seem time consuming to pack a healthy lunch during the week. With lunch providing us with one-third of our daily calories, it is beneficial for us to consume a nutrient packed healthy lunch each day. These healthy options should include high fiber foods, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and low-fat dairy products that will help your child feel full longer. By offering your child with these lunch items, you will provide them with the energy that they need to concentrate and do well in class.

book review

The Tummy Trilogy Author: Calvin Trillin Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux Reviewed by: Christian Potts, Marketing and Communications Office, Pioneer Library System Food is one of those topics that pretty much anyone can get into, and it’s the focal point of an upcoming series offered by the Moore Public Library this fall. Discussions are taking place monthly through November as part of the Oklahoma Humanities initiative “Let’s Talk About it, Oklahoma.” The theme for the discussion is “Much Depends on Dinner,” and each program will include a guest moderator to lead the talk as well as dinner for each attendee. The August 25 program – starting at 1 p.m. in Rooms A and B – will focus on Calvin Trillin’s book “The Tummy Trilogy.” This work actually is a compilation of three stories the author published from 1974 to 1983, a fictional look behind the scenes at dining with a cast of unique (and hungry) characters. From “Alice, Let’s Eat” to “American Fried” to “Third Helpings,” Trillin looks at classic cuisine served with a big helping of humor. The trilogy of those stories was put together into this one work and released under this title in 1994.Discussions in the future will focus on “In Defense of Food” by Michael Pollan, “A Homemade Life” by Molly Wizenberg and “Secrets of the Tsil Café” by Thomas Fox Averill. Books, services, and other materials for this series are provided by Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma, a project of Oklahoma Humanities. Funding for this series was provided by grants from the Inasmuch Foundation and Kirkpatrick Family Fund.

FOLK SECRETS WITH BRENT WHEELBARGER

Folk Secrets Season Finale

The people in the above photo are the survivors, the dedicated ones, the true treasure hunters. Through the course of the summer, hundreds of people crisscrossed the metro in a race against time and each other to win cash prizes and collect clues, potentially leading to an ancient treasure.    But this group found them all; and then competed for the grand prize at the Oklahoma State Capitol.   Folk Secrets was an augmented reality treasure hunt across the OKC metro tied to Oklahoma history. Treasure hunters used a mobile app to literally open doorways into the past, allowing them to experience OKC locations the way they might have looked a hundred years ago.

48 | MOORE MONTHLY | AUGUST 2018

The grand finale prize was $1,000 and the opportunity to award another $1,500 to a metro area school for history education. The winners were the McFarland family of south Oklahoma City and they selected Mustang High School to receive the history education funds. In regards to how they did it… “My husband, he researches history like crazy,” said Melissa McFarland. “We do our homework.” If you didn’t have an opportunity to participate in the hunt, but would like to experience going back in time, the Folk Secrets Codex App (Apple or Android stores) has been reconfigured to allow anyone to open portals

from their own home. Simply download the app on your phone, select the portal you’d like to open, scan the floor and watch a time doorway appear in the middle of your room, yard or wherever you might be. The interactive experiences will take you back in time to various locations in the metro, all from the comfort of your living room (check www.folksecrets.com for supported mobile devices). Behind every folk story, there’s real history.

SPORTS WITH ROB MORRIS

Follow Westmoore Alum Ashley Gomez on Athletic Mission Trip Xavier guard and former Jaguar star Ashley Gomez is a member of the Athletes in Action team that will be participating in the FISU America games in São Paulo, Brazil. We’re sharing Ashley’s first blog in this month’s edition of the Moore Monthly. You can follow all of her blogs at this link: http://goxavier.com/news/2018/7/24/ womens-basketball-blog-ashley-gomezexplores-brazil-ahead-of-fisu-americagames.aspx Hey Xavier Fans! I just wanted to give you all an update about this wonderful journey that I am on and give you some information about it! I was asked to participate on this faithbased team to represent USA Team in the FISU America games. We will be representing four of the 14 USA teams that will be participating in the games, bringing men's and women's basketball and men's and women's volleyball teams. The four teams have been here at the Athletes in Action headquarters in Xenia, Ohio, since Saturday, July 14 for training camp. A typical day in training camp is jam packed. We have breakfast every morning at 8 a.m. From 8:30 a.m.- 9:30 a.m., we have "family time" which consists of all four teams together learning scripture principles that we will be able to apply when we get to Brazil. We then head to practice from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. followed by an hour-long lunch break. Team time with just the women's basketball team is from 1:30 p.m.- 3 p.m. This consists a lot of writing and sharing our testimonies as a way to get to know each other on a deeper

level. After team time, we have four hours to rest, shoot, or lift depending on what we are able to access that day. Dinner is from 7:30 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. followed by another "family time" from 8:15 p.m. - 9:15 p.m. Practices have been awesome! The coaching staff we have is truly amazing. Practices are a little hectic as the coaches are not able to plan them like most college teams, but we are all adjusting very well to the chaos! In only four practices, they have been able to bring 10 girls, who most have never played together before, and make our game look like we have been playing together for months. We all have such a drive and passion for the sport, and such a want to glorify God in the game, that it is truly incredible to be a part of. There are some amazing women and players that I am so fortunate to be playing with these next two weeks. Some teammates I have immediately connected with is my roommate, Hannah Stewart, and my sweet friend, Fallyn Freije. Not only are they both wonderful players, but they are so on fire for the Lord, and grow me every single day in my faith. We leave TODAY for Brazil and I am so excited to begin this journey that we have been equipping for these past four-andhalf days. We will arrive in São Paulo, Brazil around 7:30 a.m. on July 20 - the day of opening ceremonies. Our basketball schedule does not begin until July 24.  When the schedule has been finalized I will be sure to put it in the blog! They will be streaming (most) of the games

on Facebook Live on the CDSU.Brasil page. We will have a few more practices in Brazil and then games will start! Other than winning Gold medals, our mission on this trip is to build community with as many athletes as possible both from the U.S. and from the other countries being represented. We will be doing this by hosting chapels in our hotel both in the mornings and evenings. Since all athletes will be staying in the same place, we will be able to invite them to these events and get to know them better, as we will lead them in discussions about their life and faith. We also have plans to, hopefully, travel to Rio to see the Christ the Redeemer statue, and also team with the Samaritan's Feet Foundation to wash the feet of and give shoes to children who may not be able to afford them. I am so excited to be able to write about this trip and share it with all of you! Please keep us in your prayers as we travel today and arrive in São Paulo. Thanks for reading and be sure to look back for more updates! Let's Go X!

MHS Class of 1968 Celebrates 50th Reunion

It was a time of celebration, revelry, and memories for many returning members of the Moore High School (MHS) Class of 1968. The former classmates gathered over a June weekend for their 50th reunion celebration. Friday morning was a golfing tournament held at Broadmoore Golf Course with 11 classmates battling to the end of an 18-hole epic that would have made Tiger Woods proud. No injuries were reported! Friday night 90+ classmates and spouses from MHS classes of 1966-1978, reminisced at an informal mixer held at Toby Keith’s Hollywood Corner. The celebration continued Saturday morning at Moore High School. This 50th celebration was special since it was shared with Moore High School’s Birthday: he Class of 1968 was the first to graduate from the new high school. Principle Mike Coyle graciously allowed the reunion committee to host a brunch at the high school that brought together 82+ all year’s classmates, spouses, and the Moore Alumni Association. Eight members of the MHS Cheer Squad served as exceptional tour guides as the 1968’ers had a chance to see the building in all of its modern glory. Classmates of ’68 then traveled to Central on Broadway – the original school for most of our school years. Saturday night was the gala reunion event held at Embassy Suites in Norman. In attendance were 88+ classmates, spouses, and a special surprise, one of MHS’s favorite teachers, Mr. Boyd Fees and his lovely wife of 63 years. Memorial tributes were paid to 59 classmates of the Class of 1968, and tributes were paid to veterans and/or spouses of our class who had served in the military. Games and awards for various categories of trivia questions from the 1950’s-1960’s was a big hit with this crowd. The coup de la grace was a skit performed by three classmates depicting the iconic Lucy and Ethyl skit of grape stomping – MHS classmates returning to their old ‘stomping grounds.’ A great time was had by all, and everyone is looking forward to the next celebration of life. 52 | MOORE MONTHLY | AUGUST 2018

Moore Special Olympian Soars to Gold Medal Wins I am brave I am bruised I am who I’m meant to be This is me. “This Is Me” lyrics from “The Greatest Showman” Don’t let her diminutive 94-pound frame confuse you: Madison Madory knows exactly who she is meant to be: a power lifter. And like the characters in movie, “The Greatest Showman”, Madison has stepped into the bright lights and onto the biggest stage of her young life, the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games. There was no stage fright in the spotlight for Madison. She delivered a stunning performance, bringing home four medals, two of them gold. Madison’s mom and coach, Angela Madory, says it was amazing watching people as the met Madison and discovered her athletic specialty for themselves. “It’s always so funny because people will see the medals and expect that she’s a gymnast or something like that,” said Angela. “They are genuinely shocked when they find out she’s a powerlifter.” For Madison, the attraction to powerlifting is really simple. “I really like doing this,” said Madison, “And I’m going to try and get stronger and just keep competing.” Angela says her daughter is remarkably selfmotivated to succeed and works hard in the gym on her strength and technique. But she also notes that Madison’s motivation shows up in ways that go far beyond workouts.

“She’s very disciplined with her diet,” said Angela. “She has to maintain her weight very carefully, so she eats a lot of salads and drinks a lot of water. She even gets on my about what I eat at home.” Madison normally competes in the 97-pound weight class. That means she likes to keep her weight right around 95-pounds to give herself a little bit of a buffer. But Angela says that just before the Special Olympics USA games they received a call from her national team coach telling her that the weight class for the upcoming games would be 95-pounds instead of 97-pounds. “Madison went to work,” said Angela. “She was determined to get down past 94-pounds and still be strong enough to compete in Seattle.” It’s not that Madison doesn’t like the foods that are off her training menu. Her favorite food is Mexican and she loves burgers. But her desire to be a champion burns a lot hotter than it does enjoying those foods. “I take the buns off when I have a burger,” said Madison. “Also, no cheese, no sodas, and no sweets.” Of course after the power lifting competition was over Angela says Madison was willing to cut loose and live a little bit at the dinner table. Still, being the disciplined young lady she was, Madison didn’t go completely crazy. “I had a burger, no bun and no cheese, some chicken, and some mini-corn dogs,” said Madison. The powerlifting competition at the 2018 Special Olympics USA games took place on the first day of the week. Competitors participate in three categories: bench press, squat, and

54 | MOORE MONTHLY | AUGUST 2018

dead lift. Madison won golds in her weight category in the bench press (lifting 80 pounds), the squat (88 pounds) and a bronze in the dead lift (90 pounds). She also won the silver medal for best all-around performance. The irony of it all is that the bench press and squat aren’t her strongest events. “It’s funny that she won the bronze in the dead lift and that’s her strongest event,” said Angela. “The problem wasn’t the weight she lifted, it was a technique issue. She couldn’t get her right shoulder parallel and they are extremely strict on the judging, so she ended up with the bronze.” Powerlifters at the Special Olympics are judged by the same standards as any other competitive powerlifter. Those standards are governed by the International Federation of PowerLifting, which has a 36-page rule book that covers everything from what kind of equipment is used, to what you are allowed to wear, to the fine details of technique. “Competing at this level is really challenging,” said Angela. “These athletes have to have the same perfect form as any other competitor in the world and that makes what Madison and the others do here remarkable.” It is Madison’s competitiveness and disciplined nature that Angela hopes will help people set aside any misconceptions they might have about Special Olympians. Both Madison and Angela saw what they believe the world should be like for these remarkable athletes in the days after her medal-winning performances. “It’s nice when people in your local community recognize what these athletes do,” said Angela. “But for us to be a part of

something this big and realize that she’s being recognized by people from all across the country was amazing. This is the kind of thing we’ve always wanted for Madison and all of these kids from the beginning: that they’re accepted and celebrated for who they are and what they’ve accomplished, just like any other person.” For Madison, the joy of competing and being recognized for her strength and determination was great. But she also takes home some great memories beyond the competition. “I got to meet people from all over the place and got to know some friends from Mississippi,” said Madison, “I got to hear (New Zealand singing star) Charlie Puth perform and I got to hear Keala Settle sing ‘This Is Me’ from ‘The Greatest Showman.’” “This Is Me” is a song performed by Keala Settle, who portrayed Lettie Lutz, AKA the Bearded Lady in the hit movie. Settle told Entertainment Weekly that she often finds herself in tears as she scrolls through countless Instagram messages where people share their stories of how encouraging the song was to them. Settle can add one more encouraging story to that tear-stained list: the tale of a tiny Westmoore alum who surprised everyone, becoming a Special Olympics national powerlifting champion.

Staton Financial

Whether your retirement plans include a list of places you’ve always wanted to visit or a dream of spending your golden years in the mountains or on a lake, there’s never a bad time to start preparing for those days. For local residents, Staton Financial specializes in retirement planning and offering annuities, wealth management and asset protection, IRA and 401K rollovers among other services. Scott and Angela Staton have been in the finance business for 19 years, beginning their journey when Scott transitioned into finance from physical therapy after receiving an offer to work in insurance from a friend. “I’d never sold a thing in my life. I didn’t see myself doing that but he kind of sold me on the market and the potential of it so I thought hey I’ll give it a shot and if it doesn’t work out I can always go back to the PT world. And I did great at it, I loved it, I liked meeting the people and I stuck with it,” Staton said. Staton eventually tired of working for someone else and decided to develop his own company. “I worked for a company for about five years and just wanted to be independent and be able to do what we wanted, not be dictated 58 | MOORE MONTHLY | AUGUST 2018

by a parent company that tells us what we can and can’t do. We wanted to have the autonomy to do what was important and what’s best for the client.” Staton Financial opened in June of 2004 and has been in full swing ever since, expanding to a new facility this past February. Some clients have been with Staton Financial since the very beginning and that’s what the business is built off of according to Staton. “It’s a great relationship. We still keep in contact with them, they appreciate the longevity of the relationship and the honesty and communication. Probably the two things we get the most feedback on are staying in contact with them and not forgetting about them,” he said. And keeping things personal is something both Scott and Angela make an effort to do with everyone that walks through the door. Each clients name is on the TV in the front office when they walk in and fresh baked cookies are available every day. “We have a big client base but we’re a not a huge national firm, we’re local, we’re in the community every day, we know the people we work with and we are able to stay in contact

with them and we really make them a priority versus just going out and trying to get as many clients as possible and not knowing any of them, we’ve got thousands of clients but we know them,” Staton said.

(www.statonfinancialgroup.com) or by calling the office at 405-735-6762. There are typically two a month with topics focusing on taxes, retirement strategies or social security planning.

“Too many people, the big national places, you have to call the 1-800 number and talk to someone different every time and we want to have a big business but we want it to still feel small so that they feel like they’re important and they’re not forgotten.”

So drop them a line or stop by the office at 709 SW 119th Street, have a cookie, and let them know how they can help.

For those who think financial planning isn’t for them due to a smaller income, Staton says it’s even more important to plan around your money. “We don’t really set a hard minimum to work with somebody, obviously the more you’ve got the, more we can do for you but, if they feel like they don’t have a lot that makes it even more critical that they make the most of what they’ve got and that they’re not taking too much risk with it or wasting money on fees and expenses. If they don’t have a lot of money they’ve got to make what they’ve got last and they’re the ones that can least afford to make mistakes.” Staton Financial also offers free public workshops and dinner seminars which can be found on the events tab on their website

“It boils down to making the client feel like they’re our top priority, and they are. Our goal is to make everybody feel that way. Not based on account size, we treat everybody the same. They’ve entrusted us with their money, so we’ve got to make the most of it. Our mission really is to serve them the best we can, ” Staton said. “I think that’s just kind of the way I was brought up. I was taught to be respectful and whenever you’re handling someone’s money it’s always a big responsibility that comes with that. And you have to have the character and the integrity to know that you’ve got to do what’s best for them not just what’s best for us and put them first.”
