Passion for Music Pushes Local Musician Out of Comfort Zone “I took one lesson from a Young Life leader,” said Reneé. “She taught me four chords, and I took it from there.” Reneé wrote her first song when she was 12-yearsold, inspired by a Taylor Swift performance. She says songwriting quickly became the easiest way for her to express all of the emotions and thoughts she was experiencing as she grew up. “I had a lot of things to say, and I just didn’t know how to say them,” said Reneé, “But when I picked up a guitar and started to play, I knew what to say. It wasn’t hard anymore. So I started writing songs about the things that were going on, what I was thinking, things that were hard or not so hard, and just coming up with ways to say them better.” She has a songbook filled close to 40 songs but is quick to admit that some of them aren’t very good. 19-yearold Norman singer/ songwriter Addie Renee´ remembers being sixyears-old when her passion for music bloomed into colorful life. That passion is now on display for the world to see with the release of her first three songs, recorded recently in Nashville. The songs are available on Apple Music, YouTube, and Spotify. “I remember growing up watching Ellie Holcomb perform,” said Reneé. “She’s a really good family friend of ours, and I decided that I wanted to do what she was doing.” The six-year-old picked up her first guitar and taught herself how to strum on a beat. “That’s the hardest thing to do,” said Reneé. “After that, I would just watch people play and then figure out how to move my fingers to recreate what I had seen and heard.” It helped a lot that Reneé’s father, Scott Hennigan, was on Young Life staff. Being a part of a family involved in that outreach ministry meant she was around a lot of guitar players, whether she was at one of Young Life’s popular summer camps or hanging around volunteer Young Life leaders in Norman.

“A twelve-year-old isn't necessarily going to be a good songwriter,” said Reneé, “So I do have a lot of songs that honestly I don't know where they came from.” Fortunately, there were plenty of songs that were good enough to catch the attention of folks in the music business. Nathan Dugger, a Nashville-based guitarist who plays with Drew and Ellie Holcomb, suggested Reneé come to the Music City and record a few of her songs. “I kind of laughed about it and thought, ‘That’s a nice dream,’” said Reneé, “But when I told my mom about it she said, “Why not? You’re only 19-years-old. You have a year of college under your belt, and you’re not tied to anything right now. Now’s the time to do it.’” That kind of family support wasn’t exactly a surprise to Reneé. She says her family has been very supportive of her musical dreams. “Pursuing music as a career is a risky thing to do,” said Reneé, “It’s a hard business and even harder to break into. But my parents have always encouraged myself and my siblings to dream big and that nothing is too big or too small to accomplish.” Reneé decided to take Dugger’s advice and record three or four songs in Nashville. But to do so, she realized she had to come up with around $2,000 to pay for the studio time. She decided to raise the money herself.
“I was trying to finish my freshman year of college,” said Reneé, “So I was babysitting every single chance I had. Then right before I left I put on a concert, which I sprung on my sweet dad.” Reneé said her father helped pull the whole event together, drawing about 50 people and netting another $75 to be applied to her $2,000 goal. In the grand scheme of things, the numbers aren’t necessarily impressive. But Reneé noticed something that was extremely encouraging. “Ellie told me that it’s a really good sign when people request you play specific songs,” said Reneé, “I realized that I had three songs that had gotten a lot of feedback and requests to play them.” Those three songs, “Rooftop,” “Love, Dad,” and “Tapped Out”make up Reneé’s first wide-release. Her clean, acoustical style is a perfect fit for her song-writing philosophy. “I do see myself as more of a storyteller with my songs,” said Reneé. “They tend to have a beginning, a story to follow, and a resolution.” The chance to record in Nashville studio, under the direction of a professional producer, was a horizonexpanding experience for Reneé. She was able to get valuable wisdom from people who have been in the music business, feedback that has helped her realize that she needs to pursue her dream without fear. “I do plan on pursuing this,” said Reneé. “If it doesn’t work out, that’s okay, too. At least I can say I gave it my best shot.” Make no mistake about it, music is her passion, and she plans to throw everything she has at succeeding in the business. But she says her pursuit of this dream is based on a solid foundation of faith and family. “From the end of my senior year of high school and my freshman year of college everything that has happened to me has been purely by the grace of God and by his plan,” said Reneé. “None of it was my plan.” You can find Addie Reneé’s debut songs on Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube.

Winging Our Way Back Through Moore’s Aviation History The muffled beating of the Drums of War in Europe in the late 1930s sent a serious warning to America, in spite of the fact that World War I was called the War to End All Wars. Among the greatest defensive needs of our country were aircraft and trained pilots. Because of a strong movement to stay out of war, there was difficulty in funding a large training program. So the government funded the Civil Pilot Training Program (CPT) through the Bureau of Air Commerce, the forerunner of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This program subsidized a cheap way for civilians to learn to fly. Reimbursement was substantial, and a number of airports sprang up over the country providing licensed pilots to train civilians. When World War II began in 1941, many of these civilian-trained pilots made up a good portion of the USAAF. In 1940, Roy Wheatley built the Wheatley Airport on an eight-block tract of land along the east side of the railroad, between N. 3rd and N. 12th Streets, with a paved north/ south and a grassy east/west runway, a small residence and two 60 x 80 ft. hangars with a 20 x 80 ft. shop between. Within the vicinity of Moore were several other small, private airports where licensed pilots gave flying instructions to private citizens. One was on what is now Janeway
Street, halfway between 12th and 27th. Regularly every spring, at least one of the hangars was downed by a tornado. In fact, that was the origin of the name Moore earned as “Tornado Alley.” Another was at 89th and S. Western. Also, the Navy built a practice landing strip in the area of S. Santa Fe and 34th Street for the use of naval pilots training at North Base in Norman. There were no hangars, but the Navy pilots practiced landing, taking off and other exercises. According to published information, Oklahoma World War II Army Airfields, during the war several private airfields converted to use by the USAAF under Fourth Army Air Force Training Command. Records show three locations credited to Moore. After the war, some continued to be used by USAAF, the USAF through the Cold War period. Others became municipal airports, and yet others returned to being fields. Though World War II ended in 1945, the interest in flying did not, and many small airports continued to operate. More people wanted to fly. It was not unusual to find men tinkering in machine shops, hangars, blacksmith shops and even garages, restoring planes or building their own. Within time, these men and others interested in flying began meeting at designated airports for
regular “fly-ins,” to compare planes, ideas and performances. In 1946, Roy Good leased the airport for one year to store 800 war-surplus aircraft engines he had bought. He returned in 1956 to operate the airport. In the late 1960s, a tornado destroyed or damaged much of Wheatley. Good moved his airport to the north side of N. 12th Street and he and his family operated it there until 1984. The north portion of the old Wheatley Airpark was sold to Diamond Crystal Salt Company and has been used since by various food preparation factories. Paul Odom bought and continued the airport operation until the early 1990s when FAA suggested—did not mandate—that it was no longer safe to have planes flying in and out because of the factory on the south, housing close on the east, the railroad and telegraph poles on the west and a TV tower that was erected close to the north end. He sold the property to Charles Thompson. Thompson remodeled the one remaining hangar for rental storage. Eventually more storage units have been built, until the former airfield is covered. Along with the crowded condition, more restricting FAA regulations have made the operation of a small private airport too costly. The failure of the oil industry in the
middle 1980s had a vast influence on the use of personal planes. The high cost of buying a plane, plus the ever-increasing maintenance regulations and cost of fuel have taken the heart out of the hobby of small planes. Aviation has experienced more and greater changes than any other industry since the World War II era, but the mystique attached to flying has not changed. A Greek myth tells of Icarus, who leaped from the top of a tower to fly to the Island of Crete, having covered his body and arms with waxed feathers. The wax melted and Icarus fell into the sea. Only a myth, of course, but evidence that even early society intended to fly—whatever the cost.

How Do I Help My Sales Team Achieve Their Goals? 1. Create a written description of your ideal customer. Use such clarity that it paints a picture of someone specific when you share it with others, even when that person knows nothing about your business. 2. Review your list of current customers and rate them A, B, C based on what makes them your best customer. Include the lead source, demographics, psychographics, steps in the customer's journey and the "job to be done" that your service fulfills for the "A" clients. 3. Incorporate what you learned from your review of existing clients into your ideal customer profile. Use this information to understand who, where, and how to find prospects who fit the description of your ideal or best customers. 4. Develop a 30-second, one-minute and two-minute elevator pitch that relates the value you bring to a client, or "the job to be done." 5. Create a visual flowchart of your "lead-to-close sales system." Include sales stage steps such as raw leads and lead source, qualified leads and lead source, discovery call, faceto-face needs assessment, proposal delivery, closed-won or closed-loss (and why). Keep weekly and year-to-date percentage metrics for each stage of the sales cycle from lead to close, by the salesperson. 6. Develop your annual sales dollar goal based on the historical metrics in step five and your average sales ticket dollar amount. This is the WIG or "wildly important goal" for your sales team. It is also a lagging measure. (You cannot influence this goal directly; it is the sum of the leading measure activity and behaviors of your team, which determines if you meet or exceed this goal). 7. As a sales team, identify the best leading measure of behavior and activity, which your sales team directly influences and most accurately predicts the success of your sales dollar goal. Typically, this lead measure is the "number of weekly face-to-face needs-analysis meetings your sales team generates with qualified leads." 8. Through your sales team, develop a simple team scoreboard that tracks two measures, by week and by year-to-date: the lead measure (i.e., the number of weekly face-to-face needs-analysis meetings your sales team generates with qualified leads by salesperson) and the lagging measure (the weekly and year-to-date sales dollars generated by salesperson). Do not muddle the team's visual scoreboard with any other complicated metrics (coach's scoreboard). You want your team to keep track of their score, know if they are winning or losing, and focus on the one behavior or metric (i.e., leading measure) which best influences and predicts their ability to achieve their goal (i.e., annual sales dollar goal for new business generated). 9. Consistently conduct weekly 30-minute sales meetings with your team (same time and day of the week). In the 30-minute meeting, each salesperson will self-report their weekly progress of lead measure (number of weekly needs-analysis meetings) compared to goal for the prior week and discuss their plan to achieve the goal the following week. This is also the meeting where the team will brainstorm different ways to accomplish your lead measure goal; that is the focus. The sales dollars will follow. Single-minded focus once a week and keeping score will put your team in "game-on" mode, keep them engaged, and keep them competing with the right type of activity. 10. As a sales manager, you can conduct one-on-one coaching sessions with any sales person who may need additional help in any of the areas in the lead-to-close sales stages, based upon their needs. However, the focus of the weekly meeting is all about the best-lead measure.

All organizations are caught up in the whirlwind of day-to-day tasks, priorities, and goals. This is fine for 80% of your time and effort. However, if you really wish to accomplish the one or two WIGS (wildly important goals) that will transform your company or department, spend the remaining 20% of your time following steps 1-10 to make that happen.

Fall is in the air; you can feel it! After a hot summer there is nothing better than a crisp fall day with orange, red and yellow leaves dropping from trees. The change of season brings a new variety of activities, sights, smells, and flavors. Coffee shops bring back their pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider appears in grocery stores, hay bales and pumpkins decorate front porches, and the smell of burning wood at bonfires and in fireplaces fills the air. As you age, one of the most important things you can do for your health is to remain active. A new season brings a new opportunity to try new things. Here are some suggestions: Go for a walk: Take the time to enjoy the weather before it gets too cool. Enjoy the crisp blue sky and the bright-colored leaves and flowers. For an added bonus invite someone to join you. Visit a pumpkin patch: If picking out a pumpkin is too strenuous an activity, bring a friend, child or grandchild with you. Visiting a pumpkin patch is a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Decorate your front door: Get festive and buy or make a wreath, set up a scarecrow, carve a pumpkin. You can be as creative as you wish.

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 Through 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 har-vested—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.

MOORE MOVIES WITH ROB MORRIS
FALL MOVIE GUIDE So now we hit Hollywood In-Between season, that space between summer and holiday blockbusters.

PJâ€™s Place Moore's newest homestyle eatery, PJ's Place, has been on a crazy roller coaster ride since opening in late July. Even though it's only been open a short time, owners David and Melanie Ivers can tell you all about the battle scars they've received since deciding to open their restaurant nearly a year ago. Even the reason why they chose the former Peking restaurant location is a story in itself.
purchasing all the contents of Peking last October, the grills quit working, the freezers stopped running, and the ice cream machine broke. And then, everything else in the kitchen died, too. "It was one thing after another. Basically everything not attached to the building, all the contents we purchased, had to be replaced. It was just crazy."
PJ's Place came to be after a long, hungry car ride home late one night from a local casino. The Ivers venture out late at times and are often dismayed at the lack of good restaurants open in the early morning hours. At the time, there weren't many options to find what they called "down home cooking" in town.
The Ivers spent months and months cleaning and repairing everything. David's brother Donnie, the restaurant's acting General Manager and a former construction worker, found himself tasked with strapping on the tool belt to handle most of the hard labor and repairs.
"Other than a couple of chains and fast food stops, at the time it was quite difficult to find good, home-cooked food in the Moore area."
"Donnie was able to do all the work that needed to be done. Basically anything that needed to be done, he did. He really busted his rear to get the restaurant ready."
The Ivers operate several businesses in the metro area including 18 Gauge in Moore. They had been considering additional business opportunities in the area when David suggested they could open their own restaurant to enjoy the type of foods they loved when eating out.
And, to add further stress to their lives, Melanie's mom, Paula Janelle, aka PJ, was admitted to the hospital a few days later with pneumonia and other respiratory complications during this time.
"We drove by the Peking Restaurant and saw that it was for lease. Half-way kidding, half-way serious David looked at me and said, â€˜Why Not?" explained Melanie.
PJ was extremely ill. So ill that the couple wasn't sure she would survive the serious medical conditions she was facing. With their hearts torn and yearning for her complete recovery, they decided to name the restaurant PJ's Place, to honor their mama.
Nine months later, PJ's Place opened its door.
Month after month, PJ's health remained poor, as did the state of the restaurant.
That's just the beginning of their journey. Within days of signing the lease and
Finally, on July 1st, after months of replacing equipment, painting, menu

planning and more, the restaurant officially opened its doors. And, after months and months of hospitalization and rehab, PJ got to go home a few weeks later. Now that things are a bit back to normal, the Ivers are focused on bringing their customers great food and outstanding customer service. They strive to meet their diner's needs by listening to their customers and adding suggested menu items or changing things up when needed. Although their menu offers some tasty entrees and a great variety of options, they are always looking for ways to improve. When establishing the type of restaurant they wanted to be and the kinds of foods they wanted to serve, the couple looked no further than their family tree for inspiration. David and Melanie yearned for simple, homemade comfort foods their mothers and grandmothers prepared for them over the years. The couple's goal was to create the food they enjoyed eating growing up. "I want to cook things for people that they love to eat at home, but don't have time to prepare. I want them to think of family when eating our food." Their menu is made up of all the flavors and recipes that grandma used to make. You'll find things like fried squash and zucchini, fried catfish, chicken fried steak, and mashed potatoes and gravy. All of these are customer favorites. You'll also discover some things that are hard to find elsewhere on the menu. Items like fried green tomatoes, chicken and waffles,
Eggs Benedict and chipped beef & gravy over Texas toast. PJ's offers daily specials that range from chicken and dumplings to meatloaf. They also serve breakfast any time of day and a breakfast buffet daily from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. Most everything on the menu is made from scratch. From the hand-breaded mushrooms and hand-cut French fries, everything is made to order. "We don't start cooking your food until your ticket arrives in the kitchen. Nothing goes out that is pre-made and sitting under a heat lamp. We cut up the chicken and bread it so we can fry it up fresh for our diners." Melanie sometimes has to remind folks that because each order is made-to-order, it takes a few minutes to prepare and that they are continually working to become more efficient. "We're not fast food. We're not slow, but it does take a little time to cook food from scratch. We strive to offer the excellent food and awesome customer service. It is our number one thing. You can have the best food in the world, but if you don't treat your customers well, they won't come back. We treat everyone with respect and are driven to providing amazing service."

Byte-Size Tech: How Artificial Intelligence Will (Most Likely) Impact Your Life? timer or give you a list of nearby Chinese restaurants you are using AI. The artificial intelligence in the devices or apps collect information on your requests and use that information to “learn” about your speech and your preferences. The more you use them, the more accurate and useful they become.
News Generation The Associated Press, Fox, and Yahoo! All use artificial intelligence to write simple stories. If you’re reading a financial summary, a sports recap, or even fantasy sports reports, chances are it was written by an AI program. Current versions of AI can’t write in-depth articles like investigative reports or deep personality profiles, but they’re getting closer…and that makes journalists nervous. It also raises concerns about how such “news writers” might be programmed to “skew the facts.” Not that current human journalists ever skew facts. It’s nearly impossible to watch or read the news these days without hearing the phrase, “Artificial Intelligence.” For many people that phrase brings to mind images that are ambiguous at best and menacing at worst. Picture the “Terminator” movies where the artificial intelligent Skynet computer system gains self-awareness and releases menacing cyborgs to wipe out all human life. While the truth is much more benign (don’t expect a massive Arnold-Schwarzenegger-like robot to show up at your door saying, “Com wid me if you vant to live.”), you can expect artificial intelligence to have a growing impact in your daily life. With that in mind, here’s an Artificial Intelligence Primer:
WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE OR “AI”? Quite simply, artificial intelligence happens when machines “think.” It’s also called “machine intelligence” or “machine learning.” Various machines can be programmed to recognize things going on in its environment and responds to cues from that environment. Such program mimics what scientists would call “learning” or “problem-solving” functions that we tend to associate with human minds.
WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF EXISTING AI? Personal Digital Assistants First of all, many of you already use artificial intelligence. Siri, Alexa, Cortana, and Google Now are all examples of AI in the form of personal digital assistants. When you ask one of those devices to set a reminder or

Video Games The current generation of video games also uses AI in a significant way. In fact, artificial intelligence has been a part of many video games since the early days of gaming. But unlike days long gone when you could anticipate the patterns in-game characters would follow, the complexity and effectiveness of AI has led to video game characters that learn how you play the game and react in unpredictable ways. These characters, which are part of the game itself and are not “played” by another human, can analyze their environment and act in ways that help them survive and defeat their human counterparts (gamers).
WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST CHANGES AI MIGHT BRING? Smart Cars If you listen to researchers and futurists, self-driving cars are a lot closer than we might imagine. While it’s not likely, everyone will abandon their user-operated transportation in the next 10-years, advances in AI and the advent of faster networks like 5G mean that the first selfdriving cars will be ordinary very soon. The basic idea is that cars will be much more effective in “looking” at the road ahead and making better driving decisions than human drivers. Don’t believe this will happen? You might want to stop and look at the number of companies racing to be first with a self-driving car that the public will accept: Google, Apple, Tesla, Uber, and all of the major car-makers are on the clock in this arena. Sure, there have been problems. But this has been true of every mechanical and/or technological advance the world has seen. Things never work perfectly right out of the gate.
Medicine Artificial intelligence is already being proven to help doctors make more accurate patient diagnoses and come up with more effective treatment plans. It’s hard to imagine doctors and nurses being wholly removed from the process, but you could very well see a reduction in the need for general medical training as AI takes over the diagnosis and treatment of many illnesses and injuries.
Hazardous Jobs We already have bomb-defusing robots. Of course, technically they’re “drones” which are controlled by humans. But they’re getting closer and closer to being autonomous. It’s only a short step to using robots with AI programming to tackle jobs in other dangerous environments like the oil and gas field, dealing with toxic substances, welding, and construction. Of course, this is where some people worry that we’ll wander into the science fiction realm where robots become self-aware as in the popular HBO series, “Westworld” and rise up to fight back against their human oppressors. This self-awareness is often referred to as the “singularity.”
WHAT IS “THE SINGULARITY” AND COULD IT HAPPEN? The term “singularity” has become popular over the last decade as a label that is applied to the moment when robots or machines become “self-aware” or “sentient,” that is to say they stop merely responding to programming and become capable of making decisions for themselves. This thought makes a lot of people nervous because it raises the immediate question of how such sentient machines might determine morality. In short, how will sentient machines decide what is right or wrong? The short answer is that, should such an event happen, we don’t have any real idea where their idea of right or wrong may come from. But the truth is that only a small handful of scientists genuinely believe machines will actually become self-aware. Everyone agrees they’ll get awfully close. But very few think that machines will ever be able to replicate the complexity and rich details found in human existence. And that is even before we get to the metaphysical discussion of what makes up a soul? The bottom line is that for the foreseeable future artificial intelligence will become more and more complex and prevalent in society, but it will almost always reflect the programming that comes from human creators.

When Should You Go to the Emergency Room?
• • • •
Choking Difficulty breathing Head injury with fainting or confusion Injury to neck or spine, especially if there is loss of feeling or trouble moving • Electric shock or lighting strike • Severe burn or trauma • Severe chest pain or pressure If you think you are having a heart attack, please don’t drive to the emergency room. Dial 911 immediately. Your care can begin “in the field.” Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) can inform the hospital of your condition so preparations can begin before you arrive. EMSSTAT and their partners in first response including the Moore, Norman and Goldsby Fire Departments have been honored by the American Heart Association with the Mission: Lifeline ® Gold Plus award for their care of patients suffering from a severe heart attack. “Through our partnerships with our first responders in Moore and other communities we serve, we are able to provide expedited care to our patients,” said Dr. Patrick Cody, Medical Director of EMSSTAT and emergency medicine physician. “ Patients are evaluated, care is started, and information is transmitted to the receiving hospital so that the appropriate level of care is prepared while the ambulance is in route to the hospital; this might include cardiac arrest care, cath lab activation or preparation of the trauma bay in anticipation of receiving severely injured patients.”
All three of Norman Regional’s Emergency Departments are equipped to handle a variety of medical needs. If you should need to be transported by EMSSTAT to another Norman Regional facility, that ambulance ride does not cost you, the patient. “When you call 9-1-1, the communication personnel have been trained in emergency medical dispatch,” said Eddie Sims, Manager of EMSSTAT and paramedic. “They will ask some questions to assure the correct units respond and may provide instructions to the caller on care which they can provide the patient prior to our arrival. For extremely time sensitive conditions such as strokes, heart attacks and major trauma, the paramedics will provide early notice so the staff and needed equipment can be waiting to continue your care at the appropriate facility as soon the patient arrives at the Emergency Room.” Other health emergencies that you should seek immediate medical attention for include: • Unusual or bad headache, especially if it started suddenly • Suddenly not able to speak ,see, walk or move • Sudden weak or drooping on one side of the body • Heavy bleeding • Possible broken bone • Deep wounds • Serious burns • Coughing up blood • Throwing up blood • Severe allergic reaction with trouble breathing, swelling, hives • Poisoning or overdose of drugs or alcohol • Suicidal thoughts • Seizures For minor medical concerns, you can contact your primary care physician’s office. But do not delay in seeking immediately medical attention for a condition such as listed above. When EMSSTAT paramedics arrive, they will assess your condition and should you decide not to be treated or transport there is no charge, Sims said. “EMSSTAT paramedics which much rather respond when not needed than not be called and a patient have a poor outcome,” Sims said.

Some of the most frequent questions we receive at Norman Regional Health System are about seeking care during a medical emergency. When should someone go to the emergency department? Which emergency department should they go to? And when should they call 911. I spoke with our team of emergency medical professionals to help answer these important questions. Norman Regional Health System has three emergency rooms: Norman Regional Hospital, the Norman Regional HealthPlex and Norman Regional Moore. The Health System is also the owner and operator of EMSSTAT, the ambulance provider for the cities of Moore and Norman. When you call 911, the emergency team comes to you. It is important to call 911 on behalf of you or your loved one as soon as possible for things such as:

Added Protein Q: I have been noticing lots of products in the grocery stores now have added protein in them. Are they beneficial? Should I be consuming them? A: Now you can find almost any item with additional protein including drinks, cookies, bars, and even ice cream. There is no shortage of companies with protein supplement shakes. These products can help you reach your protein needs if you are unable to meet them on your own. Different types of protein have different benefits: • Whey and soy protein can help build muscle • Casein protein can help manage appetite • Collagen protein can help nourish skin and joints • Pea protein is a plant protein that is easy to digest Products containing additional protein are wonderful, however, they are not necessarily better for you than the alternative items. Read the ingredient labels. You may not need the additional protein in your diet. Think if you normally eat the same product without additional protein. Depending on what your goal is, these protein fortified products may be beneficial for you or they may not be. Just because the product has additional protein does not mean it is better for you. If you need help incorporating more protein into your diet or are curious about whether you currently consume enough protein, you can contact an outpatient dietitian for a consult. To schedule an appointment, please call 307-5730.

The Hate U Give Author: Angie Thomas Genre: Young Adult, Fiction Publisher: Harper Collins Page Count: 444 Reviewer: A.J. Soliven, Information Services, Moore Public Library
Angie Thomas’ debut hit “The Hate U Give” tells the story of a teenage girl from her humble upbringing and dealing with the struggle of racism, violence, interracial relationships and self-awareness. “The Hate U Give” follows the story of Starr Carter as she balances life living in a poor neighborhood while attending private school. Starr seems to have it all with her loving family, a job at her father’s store, popularity and a boyfriend. Starr tries her best to keep her neighborhood upbringing and poshschool life separate, but one fateful evening, her childhood friend, Khalil, is shot by a police officer. Before Starr knows it, she becomes the subject of a high-profile case involving race.
46 | MOORE MONTHLY | SEPTEMBER 2018
News of Khalil’s death becomes a national headline as Starr is torn between trying to stay anonymous and sticking up for her friend. Protests ensue with people wanting justice for Khalil. Starr also gets caught up with the drama of a local drug lord, who claims Khalil was a part of his crew, and her peers at school who think Khalil was just a thug. On top of that, Starr has to testify against the officer who shot Khalil. Pressure mounts as police and the local drug lord try to twist Starr’s story. With fear and intimidation from both sides, Starr has the opportunity to use her voice and tell her story. Thomas’ writing includes moments of reflection with situations that are relatable to society. The story provides intense scenes that portray anger and fear but also brings in the comfort of family and friends through tough times. This book is available at your local library on the shelf or as a downloadable eBook.

William ‘Bill’ J. Murray to speak at Randall University
Bill Murray, the son of the atheist and Marxist leader Madalyn Murray O’Hair, is to speak at Randall University in Moore, on September 6, in the Barber Building on the campus. Twenty years after the infamous Supreme Court decision Murray v. Curlett, a decision that removed prayer and Bible reading from the public schools and a case that was filed on William Murray's behalf as a teenager in the Baltimore Public Schools, he purchased a book that led to his becoming a Christian in 1980.The book was Taylor Caldwell’s Dear and Glorious Physician, a fictionalized account of the life of Luke, the writer of the third gospel. He liked the book so much that he purchased a Bible so he could read the gospel written by the main character of Caldwell’s novel. “There I found my answer --- not the book itself, but Jesus Christ. I had heard many times in various churches that all one needed to do was to admit guilt and ask Jesus in,” Murray wrote in his autobiographical My Life Without God. “I had not made that one step, to ask Him into my heart. I knew I must take that step, and I did so that night. God was no longer a distant, impersonal ‘force.’ I now knew Him in a personal way.”
48 | MOORE MONTHLY | SEPTEMBER 2018
Schedule for Murray, Thursday, September 6th at Randall. At 5:30 p.m., there will be a reception, followed by a dinner at 6 p.m. During the reception, those attending will receive a free signed copy of his book, My Life Without God, and have the opportunity to have their picture taken with Murray. The reception and the dinner will cost $35 each, and tickets can be obtained by going to ru.edu/murray or by calling 405-912-9000. Following the reception and dinner, there will be a free event open to the public in the auditorium at 7:30 p.m., at which time Murray will speak. Following his talk, he will sign copies of two of the eight books that he has written. His first book, My Life Without God, was first published in 1982 and details his life in the dysfunctional home of his atheist mother. His most recent book is Utopian Road to Hell, which deals with the destructiveness of utopian collectivist thinkers throughout history, such as Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler. Currently, Murray is the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C. For more than three decades, Murray has been at the forefront of social issues. During the early 1980s, he served as director of Freedom’s Friends, an organization which reached out to
the victims of communism worldwide. In the 1990s, he founded the first commercial Bible publishing company in what was then the Soviet Union. From his office in D.C, Murray works for the rights of Christians in America and for persecuted Christians around the world. Under his guidance, the Religious Freedom Coalition manages aid and ministry programs for persecuted Christians in the Middle East and Africa. The two largest programs are Christmas for Refugees and Diapers for Refugees.

SPORTS WITH ROB MORRIS
High School Athletes Challenged by Difficult Choices It has become a near-daily event: somebody gets dragged through the court of public opinion in the ugliest of ways because of something they posted on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. The post could have been made yesterday, or it could have happened years ago. Jobs have been lost. Careers have been ruined. Scholarships and internships have been lost. People have even gone to jail. Moore Public Schools Director of Public Safety Dustin Horskoetter says these kinds of scenarios are just one of the challenges facing the city’s high school athletes.
“One high-profile coach recently said that he finds out about the true character of their recruits when he opens their social media,” said Horskoetter. “It’s important that kids realize that when you post something, retweet something, like something, or comment on something that you now own that and it’s never going to go away.” Horskoetter was recently approached by Jeremy Stark, Southmoore’s head football coach, about addressing difficult issues like social media, drugs and alcohol use. Horskoetter says it’s the first time he’s tackled such a presentation, but he agreed with Stark that there’s a growing need to help high school students face these challenges. “I think the biggest problem for most students is that they really don’t think through the full consequences of the choices they’re making,” said Horskoetter. “I shared
with them some of my experiences as a police officer with these issues and they’re pretty eye-opening.” In August, Stark and his coaching staff gathered the entire football team for Horskoetter’s presentation. The topics included: The responsibility of being a student athlete, Who you represent School district and legal consequences for drug and alcohol activity, The effects of drugs and alcohol on your body, Social media – questionable posts, photos, and videos. “On the social media side of things, I really tried to hammer home how negative social media can be,” said Horskoetter. “Instead of negative things I challenge them to use social media to lift people up and encourage them, to be positive about yourself, your teammates, your classmates, and your schools.” Horskoetter says today’s students are extraordinarily active on social media, especially Twitter and Instagram. That means they’re aware of the social media trouble high-profile athletes have gotten into recently. The most recent example was Milwaukee Brewers All-Star pitcher Josh Hader. The 24-year-old superstar’s All-Star game debut was tainted by a series of racist, sexist, and homophobic tweets made when the pitcher was 17-years old. The tweets happened during the All-Star game and the backlash was immediate, even forcing MLB officials to give members of Hader’s family generic jersey’s to prevent them from being harassed.
50 | MOORE MONTHLY | SEPTEMBER 2018
Horskoetter believes that young athletes can learn from these kinds of examples and challenged the Sabercat football players to change their world by being a different kind of leader. “It's all about being a servant leader,” said Horskoetter, “That means you’re looking for ways to support, encourage, and help those around you be the best possible version of themselves. I think the people that can lead in this way, unselfishly, are the kind of leaders that can make your entire culture something positive.” As part of his presentation Horskoetter shares a few videos to help drive home the major points. A video by Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh talks about servant leadership. A video of the 2014 University of Texas commencement speech by Admiral William McRaven is also an eyeopener as the former Navy Seal tells 8,000 college graduates the most important thing they can do is make their bed first thing each morning. “McRaven says that making your bed may seem like a small thing,” Horskoetter said, “But he points out that when you make your bed each morning you’re beginning the day by accomplishing the first task of the day and that’s important.” The team also saw the commencement address given to the 2015 graduating class of the University of Houston by Matthew McConaughay. One of the main points made by the Oscar-winner was: life is not easy and it’s not fair. Don’t expect it to be that way and don’t try to make it that way.
“It’s not rocket science,” said Horskoetter. “Life isn’t easy, but you can make it less hard if you exercise discernment, make good decisions and work hard. You’re going to hit bumps every now and then, but if you eliminate some of these bad decisions and keep yourself out of bad situations, everything else will usually take care of itself.” Horskoetter says the best part of the presentation for him was seeing the light bulbs go off for so many of the kids. He also appreciates the wisdom of Coach Stark in asking him to meet with his team in the first place. “I give major league props to Coach Stark for doing this,” said Horskoetter. “It’s not hard to look back over the past few years and see the culture change in our high schools and it’s wise of him to recognize that and take steps to fight back.” Horskoetter adds that he would be happy to do similar presentations for other teams and groups in the school district. If you’re interested in talking with him about that possibility just email: dustinhorskoetter@ mooreschools.com.

Moore Educators Get Intensive Summer History Lesson The institute celebrated a milestone this summer with the graduation of its 1,000th Oklahoma educator – Ana Chavez of Jenks East Intermediate Elementary School. Oklahoma ranks second in the nation, following California, in the number of teacher institute participants, with 1,007 Oklahoma graduates to date. Of that total, 854 were selected through the Foundation for Excellence to receive donor-funded fellowships and stipends for classroom materials. “The Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute has filled in the gaps that textbooks and resources either missed or limited,” said Chavez, who was lauded with a banner in recognition of being the 1,000th Oklahoma teacher institute fellow. “This experience helped me reflect on what areas I can enrich for my students by providing primary sources or handson activities to help them relive the past.”
Luanne Gilbert, a fifth-grade teacher from Moore Public Schools, was among 36 Oklahoma teachers who participated in an immersive history training event in Virginia. Gilbert and her colleagues attended the Williamsburg Teacher Institute in the restored capital city of 18th-century Virginia. While in Colonial Williamsburg – the world’s largest living history museum – Oklahoma teachers met character interpreters of 18th-century people from Powhatan Indians and plantation slaves to British loyalists and Founding Fathers. Educators were immersed in early American history through handson activities and reenactments of historical events. This marks the 26th year that Oklahoma teachers have attended the institute through a fellowship program coordinated by the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, a statewide nonprofit that recognizes and encourages academic excellence in public schools.

This summer’s Oklahoma participants included 28 fifth-grade teachers and eight eighth-grade educators. The Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute provides participants with interactive teaching techniques and skills to become mentor teachers who can assist other educators to develop active learning classrooms and make history exciting for their students. Participants share strategies to improve instruction, raise literacy levels, and enhance thinking skills. Oklahoma’s teacher institute program was founded and supported through the fundraising efforts of the late Oklahoma City businessman Edward C. Joullian III. A trustee of the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence and former board member of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Joullian died in 2006. Graduates of the institute now receive lapel pins and certificates designating them as Edward C. Joullian Oklahoma Scholars. Joullian’s family, along with a group of loyal donors, continues to support the program, which has transformed the way many Oklahoma educators teach early American history.

Football Season Preview: Southmoore Sabercats
Football Season Preview: Westmoore Jaguars
Running back will be a “by committee” affair this year with Elijah Brewer and Jaden Pennybaker leading the way. Stark said Southmoore also has a deep receiving corps, some of who will also play defense. They’re led by Corbyn Padgett, Jack Joyner, Max Gilber, Donovan Gaines, Marshall Mack, and Caleb Baker.
Football seasons don’t get much tougher than the one Southmoore experienced in 2017. Head coach Jeremy Stark said that going an entire season without winning a single game is a bitter experience, even if your team nearly won some of those games. But the Sabercats have found the silver lining in a 0-and-10 record. “You learn so much about yourself, your coaches, and your team when you go through a season like that,” said Stark. “It sounds crazy to say but I really enjoyed last season. Our staff and kids have embraced the challenge and come back hungry to improve.” Stark said that one of the Sabercats’ biggest problems last year was a lack of experience. The landscape is completely different this year with seven returning starters on offense and 9 starters coming back on defense. “Brock Eltiste is our one returning lineman,” said Stark, “So we’re going to rely on him to lead the o-line in getting back up to speed quickly. The good news is that we have all of our offensive skill position players back.” Quarterback Jaden Scott will lead the way on offense. Stark said that Scott and the backup quarterbacks have been working extremely hard learning offensive coordinator Ty Prestidge’s scheme in the offseason.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Sabercats are replacing only their two outside linebackers. Brian Shomali, D.J. Ware, and Corey Callans will anchor the defensive line with Elijah Brewer and Cody Clyma covering the inside linebacker positions. Caden Easterwood and Donovan Gaines will anchor the defensive backfield. “Our defensive scheme will be the same,” said Stark. “We have some very athletic guys at all of the positions and so we believe that defense will continue to be a strength.” Stark said that overall enthusiasm and numbers are both up for the Sabercat football program and he expects the team to improve as the season goes on. “We’re building a foundation and we’ve got to just continue to get better each day,” said Stark. “ We need to continue to do the little things better and not allow allowing ourselves to take days off or take steps back.”
SCHEDULE August 30 September 7 September 14 September 21 September 28 October 5 October 12 October 19 October 26 November 2
“We’re transitioning to an Air Raid-Mike Leach kind of offense and so the guys have been working hard to adjust to that,” said Stark. “They’ve done a great job working with Coach Prestidge and each other.”

Williams said the Jaguars are blessed with plenty of speed on the defensive side of the ball as well. That goes along with the experience brought by seven returning starters. “We have most of our best pass rushers back this year,” said Williams, “And we only lost one guy in the secondary, so those are guys who have been in the fire and know what’s going on.” Westmoore head coach Lorenzo Williams said preseason football for the Jags is a lot like Christmas morning for him. “Getting up early in the morning and opening all of your presents,” said Williams. “We’ve been working on conditioning with these kids all summer and now it’s time to get out on the field and see what we’ve got.” Williams said the Jaguars have plenty of presents under the tree, but on the offensive side of the ball very few of those presents come with significant experience and playing time. The Jags lost eight offensive starters off last year’s 8-3 team. Even more challenging – the three returning starters are two offensive linemen and one receiver. “Jacob Clark is the only returning starter who scored touchdowns for us last year,” said Williams, “And he’s going to be really good for us this year. We have a lot of guys who will start on offense for us who were in the shadows of last year’s seniors, but we feel really good about them.” Linemen Layne Grantham and Jorge Exinia will anchor the Jaguar line. They’ll be joined by newcomer Garrett Humann. Jacob Clark is the lone returning skill position starter, playing at receiver. Williams said that while every other skill position player will be new, he and his coaching staff are very excited about the talent and speed they’ll have. “Chris Oliver will see a lot of time for us at running back,” said Williams. “We’re expecting great things from him along with guys like Dayton Wolfe, Jaquan Richardson, and Coby Phillips.”
Leading the Jaguars attack-style defense will be Nikale Davis, Tre’vonne Pierre, Davion Dozier, and Jordan Hampton. Williams also expects big defensive contributions from Zac Johnson and Kerry Shaw. Overall, fans can expect a fast-paced game from the Jaguars this year. Williams said that while there are no major changes to either offensive or defensive schemes, the Jaguars will look to take advantage of their team speed. “On defense we’ll still play our in-yourface Cover One scheme,” said Williams. “Offensively we’re going to push the pace with our new guys and play a bit faster than we did last year. What we’re trying to do right now is get these guys a lot of reps and help them get better one day at a time.”

also looks to see plenty of action at multiple positions in the Lion’s spread offense. Hill said the defensive backfield will likely be a strength for Moore this year. Safety Dylan Buckheit leads the experienced defensive unit. He’s joined by Evan Biederman and Jaiden West. Frank Morales and DeAdrian Jacobs will anchor the defensive line as the Lions continue to play an odd-front, 3-4 scheme.
“There's a buzz around this season for us,” said Hill. “We’ve had good spring and summer workouts, good numbers and good energy and so far it's going well.” The biggest changes to the Lion landscape this year won’t be wearing uniforms and helmets. The Lions have added three coaches with a total of around 100 years of coaching experience. “We’ve added Darryl Wilkins, who played and graduated from Moore and coached 28 years in Texas,” said Hill. “Ralph Fleming also joined us from McAllister and he has 30 years of coaching experience. We also added Bill Dawkey who played at OU and coached at Yukon, Norman North, and in Texas.” Those coaches are helping change the culture around the Lions football program. With eight returning starters on defense and five returning starters on offense, Hill believes the Lions have a good foundation for another successful season. “Daniel Hishaw is back at quarterback,” said Hill, “And he’s a really special player. He can run, throw, and he was also All-City on defense.” Hishaw is joined by receiver Drew Johns, running backs Tony Fogle and Jayce Gardner, and H-back Alex Baxter. Cameron Allen
“We’re working hard on changing the culture by doing everything, even the little details, right,” said Hill. “It’s great to see everyone focused in on improving every single day.” Hill said the team understands the importance of things like rivalry games and city championships, but they’re working hard of focusing on the process, believing that if they prepare with excellence then what happens on the field will be pretty simple. “We want to win our first game, win more than we lose, and make the playoffs,” said Hill. We want to be better at the first game than we were at the last scrimmage and focused on improving each play, each game, each day.” SCHEDULE August 31 September 7 September 14 September 21 September 28 October 5 October 11 October 18 October 26 November 2

In 2017 the Moore Lions found themselves back in the playoffs for the first time in 12 years. Head coach Brad Hill said that while it’s nice to get a little post-season action in, the Lions are far from satisfied with playing beyond the first weekend in November.
With three new coaches in the mix and a fair share of returning starters, Hill expects 2018 to be a year in which the Lions are able to continue finding the kind of success that has eluded the school for more than a decade.

Tee for the Soul Mixing patterns. Determining the ideal jean cut for your body type. Identifying versatile pieces that meet “business casual” dress codes. These are the fashion dilemmas that try women’s souls. Solving these fashion fears can be challenging when attempting to put it all together in a poorly lit store when a thin fitting-room curtain is all that separates you from the eyes of the world. Thankfully, now that Tee For The Soul has come to Moore…these and all the other fashion obstacles you face when searching your closet for something to wear, are a thing of the past.
“We want every woman, no matter her figure, to be able to come into our store and not only find styles that fit well, but also make her feel good and feel beautiful We want women of all shapes and sizes to have cute, affordable clothing.”
“We have the BEST jeans. Our customers live and die by the Jeans we carry. They have a good amount of stretch to them, but are also well fitted. Our jeggings and leggings are the exact same way. They have the look of business casual with the feel of casual house-wear.”
TFTS was one of the first companies who fought to bring more modern clothing styles and brands to women in need of larger sizes. Jaree worked for two years to get her manufacturers to provide current, trendy apparel in extended sizes to better accommodate her customers. Eventually several companies jumped on board and began expanding their lines to offer a greater range of sizes for plus-size customers.
TFTS has become known for its uplifting environment. Among the silky, colorful kimonos and buttery soft leggings, you’ll discover something unexpected. There’s no body shaming and critcal self talk allowed here. Instead, you’ll hear “Confidence-speak” and “Body Love” catch phrases instead.
Step into this fashion hot spot and though you may enter as a fashion virgin, you will leave feeling like a fashion diva. TFTS’s unique concept builds customers’ confidence with helpful stylists offering personal service in a fun, comfortable setting.
The TFTS shopping experience is personal, innovative and one not likely found elsewhere. Each store has a full-size catwalk where customers become models. They walk the catwalks, capture their look on oversized digital cameras-turned mirrors and receive feedback and lots of encouragement from personal stylists.
Oh yes, and the store also boasts a catwalk and digital mirror. Can you strike a pose? As a teenager, Jaree Reynolds spent countless hours dreaming of a fashion career and sketching out her ideas. Her passion was further fueled when she attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Hot on the heels of training, she aspired to travel to the mecca of fashion, London, where she hoped to attend all the high-end fashion shows. However, the spark she had for fashion was replaced with fireworks when she met her soon-to-be husband on a trip to Oklahoma City. Fast forward to eight years ago, when after having spent 17 years as a stay at home mom, Jeree decided to redirect her attention back to her first love: fashion. “Once my kids were older, I started looking for something to do with my time. Tee for the Soul started as a TShirt design company. I created inspirational tees with uplifting messages.” Her online business expanded as she discovered and began to fill the need of providing trendy yet affordable fashion for women of all shapes and sizes. This became her catch phrase and her mission. 58 | MOORE MONTHLY | SEPTEMBER 2018
“We work our very best to create a highly uplifting environment and love hearing stories of women feeling beautiful again, and loving the body they live in. We pride ourselves in our shopping experience and customer service.”
Some shoppers experience it all through social media where they can engage with others via the groupies page or through online fashion videos featuring store stylists.
“We also wanted to break those fashion rules of what larger women were told they should wear. We wanted them to bare their shoulders, wear bold patterns and to feel free to express their styles and interests.” She added. TFTS offers distinctive, trendy fashion one might expect to find in a hip New York shop. There is something for everyone here with a large selection of new items arriving daily. Everything from graphic tees to cocktail dresses can be found being modeled by fellow shoppers strutting the catwalk or among the clothing racks. Some of the wardrobe essentials available here include an ever-changing line of tops, tunics, and dresses in sizes 4-26. Customers love the $9 Leggings, Leopard Kimonos and Jewelry. Jeans are also at the top of the list for most TFTS customers.
It is easy to see that TFTS is making a difference in the lives of their customers and transforming the way ladies shop and discover their style. Every day women tell Jeree inspiring stories of how the clothing and fashion advice they received at TFTS, has changed their lives. One such happy customer was struggling with her body image since having kids and didn’t like how she looked no matter what she wore. She began shopping at TFTS online and receiving encouraging messages from women on the Groupies page. She learned how to style things together and mix and match pieces with items she already owned. “She wrote us saying that now she looks forward to getting dressed every morning, and loves feeling good in her own skin. She is one of the most stylish women on our page and is now one of the women telling others that they are beautiful and worth feeling like it.”

Jaree and her team bond with their customers in unique, innovative ways, showering them with encouragement that inspires shoppers and brings in new ones each week. Yet, it is the current, up-to-date apparel that brings them to the store in the first place. It’s the merging of these assets that has made TFTS successful and continues to set them apart.

Such retail “magic” can’t be achieved with out the support of a great crew. “We have an amazing team. You can only go as far as the people surrounding you, and our girls and guys are amazing!

WHAT CAN CBD HELP WITH?
After growing their online presence and experiencing great success at their Edmond location, Jeree decided to expand. She researched and discovered that TFTS had an established and loyal customer base in Moore. The strong support in Moore, coupled with the fact that many of their long time employees call Moore home, is what moved the needle in our city’s favor to land the popular store.
