Rick Medlin began M&M Automotive in Broken Arrow and has faithfully served his customers for 44 years. Offering professional automotive service specializing in maintenance and general automotive repair, Rick takes pride in providing quality and service at a fair price. “I reached a point in my life where it was time to ‘pass the wrench,’” says Rick. Since honesty and integrity have always topped his list, Rick was determined to find a shop that would treat his customers with respect. “I actually selected these boys,” said Rick. These boys are Nathan Hayes and Larry Grimm of Team-One Automotive, and Rick assures us that they share his business values. (continued on page 28)

Rick Medlin (M&M Automotive) “passes the wrench” in a symbolic gesture to Nate Hayes and Larry Grimm of Team-One Automotive in Broken Arrow.

Nate and Larry started Team-One Automotive nearly six years ago. They have been at their current Broken Arrow location two years and are only two doors south of M&M Automotive. Nate has 22 years in the automotive business and Larry has 28.

The two worked at various shops in the Tulsa area for years and became best friends while working together at a dealership. Nate moved to Oklahoma with his family, attended Yukon High School, and graduated from Canadian

Steven White, D.D.S., is the owner of White Cosmetic and Family Dentistry. Dr. White has been in practice since 1977. “White Smile” offers a full range of dental services for your whole family, starting with preventive and restorative procedures for children to dentures and implants for adults. Dr. White’s services include cosmetic dentistry, TMJ therapy, Invisalign teeth straightening, and treatment for snoring problems. “We are also very concerned about

gum disease and the effects it can have on a person’s overall health,” he adds. Dr. White is able to treat those who are very fearful and require sedation or to be “put to sleep” in order to have dental work completed. “Our mission,” says Dr. White, “is to provide our patients highquality dentistry in a friendly, comfortable and caring environment.” As healthcare debates continue, Dr. White has taken a step to help Tulsa area families afford quality dental

care. “More than 60 percent of Americans do without dental insurance because they feel they can’t afford it,” said Dr. White. “A recent CBS News report indicated dental decay as a contributing factor in many seemingly unrelated issues including employment problems, heart disease and childhood school absences. It’s not unusual for a child to be in chronic pain because a simple cavity was not caught and treated in time.” Dr. White says much of (continued on page 28)

A GENEROUS HEART BY MELANIE HASTY-GRANT

Most of the time folks think about generosity as giving away things or money. Generosity actually means lots of things. The kind of generosity I am talking about here can take the form of encouragement, forgiveness, being deeply present for a friend during a difficult time, giving away the credit for an idea or success, giving a powerful voice to someone who feels powerless, recognizing the strength and character of another, the gift of your time, and yes, sometimes giving money or resources anonymously, with no need for recognition. I have worked on oodles of boards for charitable organizations over the years. We raised lots of money and that’s great. However, I have learned that true generosity is a different animal altogether. It comes from an inner fire to make a difference in the world, to step up to the plate when there is a pressing need and commit to doing what we can to help. True generosity changes the life of not only the receiver but also the giver. This generosity can change our world. A few years ago, Ken (my husband)

and I created a program called Character Coin. The idea was to watch for folks doing something kind or positive and give them a Character Coin. The giver was to catch someone doing something good, give them the coin, tell them why, and ask them to pass it on! It’s a pay it forward type of idea. We minted 30,000 of these coins and gave them out to teachers, kids, city leaders, and service men and women. What happened next truly changed our lives and how we saw people and our community. We heard stories about coins being passed from hundreds of folks both young and old. We heard the impact that it made on their lives. We were blessed to witness what happens when one person simply recognizes the strength and character of another. It was especially incredible to watch how

www.ValueNews.com

contagious this generosity “of recognizing another and giving a compliment” was. Just last week, we had someone call the office requesting another coin to give out to someone. The story they told us warmed our hearts all over again. So much so that we have committed to mint 10,000 more coins. If you need some, stop by the office. They are here for the taking. The story I tell you here is not about the coins. It’s not about us. It’s about trying to inspire you to create this amazing experience of generosity in your own heart. Commit to looking for opportunities with friends, neighbors, and strangers where you can be a blessing and be generous. You do not have to be rich to give generously. The miracle is this…the more you share, the more you have. For more information go to www.waterstonewealth.com or call 918-272-1120.

AAVB Mortgage Center Gains New President Kevin Highland has over 30 years of management experience and is thrilled to be joining AVB.

By Kelli Sowell

Ted Cundiff, AVB Bank president and chief executive officer (CEO), has announced that Kevin Highland (NMLS ID 211343) has joined AVB Mortgage Center and been named the new president for the mortgage division. Highland will serve on AVB Bank’s management team. “As AVB Bank considered the expansion and growth of our mortgage division, we quickly identified Kevin to direct this initiative,” stated Cundiff. “He is an accomplished leader in the mortgage

industry and will be instrumental in streamlining our mortgage processes, expanding our mortgage offerings and growing and developing AVB’s Mortgage Center.” Highland has over 30 years of management experience in sales, real estate, consumer finance and portfolio servicing. Highland made his move to AVB after serving as vice president for The Exchange Bank, where he was responsible for secondary mortgage financing, as well as serving for the past 15 years as president of Great Plains

Kevin Highland, president, AVB Mortgage Center.

Mortgage Company, Inc. A graduate of Iowa State University, Highland holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Highland and his wife, Karen, reside in Owasso. “AVB Bank has an excellent reputation for providing unparalleled customer service and developing relationships with their clients. They understand hometown banking and the need for individual and professional attention, yet, they are large enough to provide the innovative product offers that customers need,” Highland commented. “I am thrilled to be part of the growth and development of AVB Mortgage Center, and borrowers can be confident that they have a partner in AVB, that will walk every step alongside them as they discover the loan that best fits their needs.” Staffed with local industry experts to service local clients, AVB Mortgage Center continues to hire professionals with deep roots in the local community. “Kevin is an accomplished leader and is assembling a fine team of high-quality and professional loan originators that are

passionate about helping our clients,” explained Cundiff. Joining Highland at AVB Mortgage Center are three loan originators that have an excellent history of customer service: Tommy Gann (NMLS ID 217602), Gary Laughinghouse (NMLS ID 217154) and Katherine Grammer (NMLS ID 743106). Additional staffing and expansion is slated for 2014. Highland is pleased to announce that a new product offering is now available through AVB Mortgage Center. AVB has become an approved lender for the Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program, a program specifically designed for American Indian and Alaska Native families, Alaska Villages, Tribes, or Tribally Designated Housing Entities. “Because of the unique status of Indian lands being held in Trust, Native American homeownership has historically been an underserved market,” explained Highland. “Through the Section 184 program, loans can be used, both on and off native lands, for new construction, rehabilitation, purchase of an existing home or refinance.”

“The expansion of the AVB Mortgage Center comes at an exciting time within the mortgage banking industry. AVB Bank has recognized that consumers and realtors need a partner that offers a broad spectrum of products and common sense underwriting. Our clients need personalized attention and solutions that are customized to their financial circumstances. AVB Mortgage Center can provide step-by-step guidance for homebuyers, locally review and approve loans and provide timely feedback – and be that solution.” AVB Mortgage Center offers a variety of additional loan options, including: FHA, new home purchase, jumbo financing, rate and term financing, constructionto-permanent, cash out refinancing, rural development, and investment property purchase.

Precision Optical Celebrates 20th Anniversary Owner George Dakil is proud to celebrate two decades in business in 2014.

By Christopher Davis

George Dakil has been an ABO Certified Optician since 1987. This year, he celebrates his 20 year anniversary as owner of Precision Optical. Located in Broken Arrow at 520 S. Elm Pl. across from O’Reilly Auto Parts, Precision Optical offers the best in eyewear and hands-on, personal service. Dakil’s customers get remarkable vision care and great deals, as well as training and education on proper fit, maintenance and the technology related to their

eyewear selections. Dakil is passionate about eyewear and strives to educate his customers so they get the most from their glasses. He is direct, thorough and has a tendency to speak quickly. His personality has an air of friendship and familiarity, until he blows your mind with a highly condensed mini-lecture that perfectly articulates an aspect of vision technology you had taken for granted. Like a good teacher, he readily explains in depth

the pros and cons of polarized versus transition lenses, as well as the nuances of different tints from various makers. Within minutes, Dakil runs through a list of questions about driving and reading habits and work environment, filling the gaps in conversation with a primer on the history of eyewear technology and pertinent details of several options he recommends. The fact that many vision centers make little effort to

educate customers is largely to blame for eyewear problems. “I want to help people get the most mileage out of their eyewear dollars,” he says. “Having somebody ready to maintain your eyewear and take care of it is so important.” Dakil’s friendly, no-nonsense approach helps him explain proper care to customers, something many vision centers with small armies of techs in colorful scrubs seldom make a priority. At Precision Optical, customers can count on not only the perfect prescription lens, but that their glasses will fit better and last longer, too. “The amount of filth and dirt that build up, causing all kinds of hygienic problems and the scratching that people complain about is mostly due to poor cleaning methods,” he says. The truth is, many people either do not clean their glasses properly or not often enough. “We’ll show them how to do that,” he adds. Dakil is also passionate about ensuring that frames fit properly and are protected. “Some folks are sitting on them and stepping on them,” he continues. “They need to get a good fit, which would allow them to leave the glasses on their face and head – where they are

the absolute safest.” It is important to take factors like weight, size and material into consideration, as well as style. But, as he is quick to point out, over time, frames can loosen at the joints and side pieces. Routine maintenance involves much more than simply wiping the lenses on a T-shirt every other day. Besides providing the best maintenance and education resources for customers, Precision Optical also offers frames of all types to fit every budget. The store carries a wide selection from designer brands such as Wiley X, Maui Jim, Vera Bradley and Ralph Lauren.

MManpering Guys, get some much-needed manscaping done at Tulsa’s Reveal Salon. By Stephanie Reed

Master Barber DeAllen Brown gives a client top-shelf treatment with a straight razor shave. Call DeAllen at (918) 734-1380 for an appointment.

“Men seem to forget how much better they feel when they are well cared for. Men deserve a little pampering too,” DeAllen says. Haircuts, clean-ups for those in between haircuts, along with straight razor shaves, gray coverage, and hot towel treatments are all services DeAllen offers in an effort to improve each client’s visage. Specializing in all hair types, he has learned through experience that sometimes men need a friendly suggestion and a little help with self-improvement. “Sometimes clients don’t realize that there is room for enhancement. Men often don’t pay attention to the gray invading, or when eyebrows need trimming,” DeAllen explains. His friendly demeanor and dependable service have helped DeAllen establish a solid customer base in Tulsa. “I have the best customers ever,” DeAllen remarks. “It is because of my clients that I haven’t had to raise rates in years. I offer affordable

Calling all gentleman (and after a long, cold winter, perhaps a few ruffians as well), it is time to clean up the winter scruff and prepare for a clean-shaven spring debut. With “No Shave November” and the bitter temperatures, it is no wonder the winter months leave the men of Green Country in need of a little TLC. Tulsa’s Reveal Salon & Aesthetics is just the place to get it. DeAllen Brown, Reveal Salon’s master barber, has been committed to improving men’s image for 14 years. A male-only stylist, DeAllen specializes in sprucing up clients and arming them with a fresh confidence that comes from a great look. Originally hailing from Chicago, DeAllen came to Tulsa to attend Rhema Bible College. After his initial visit, he boarded a flight home and knew intuitively that his calling was not to preach, but to improve lives through a different means. DeAllen’s goal for all his clients is to improve their self-confidence.

services while being able to make a living, and they look good. We all win.” After stepping out of DeAllen’s chair, men also have a variety of other options at the salon. Pedicures and manicures are available to clean up rough, chapped winter paws, while acne treatments and chemical peels can help shape up skin that has been hiding under winter beards and coats. DeAllen’s stylistic prowess will certainly produce a spring-worthy look that the ladies will love. To schedule service, call DeAllen Brown directly at (918) 734-1380 or contact Reveal Salon.

Worship at The Rock W There’s something for each member of your family at The Rock Church.

By Duane Blankenship

All are welcome to attend services and programs of The Rock Church where Pastors Theresa and Billy Joe Watts share the word of God.

The Rock Church is a multiracial, diverse congregation with a mission to serve God and love people. The outreach ministry began serving the Tulsa community seven years ago under the leadership of Pastors Billy Joe and Theresa Watts. “There’s something for the whole family at The Rock,” says Pastor Billy Joe, “and we invite you to join us for a unique experience where we are confident you will feel God and love.” The Rock Church invites middle school boys to adult men to join in The Timothy Project, a male mentoring and coaching class taught by founding member of the John C. Maxwell Coaching Team, Pastor Billy Joe Watts. Pastor Billy Joe quotes 2 Timothy 2:2, “For you must teach others those things you and many others have heard me speak about. Teach these great truths to trustworthy men who will, in turn, pass them on to others.” The Timothy Project is a life coaching and mentoring program. It lays out a strategy for successful living by

asking, “Who will you be?” as it focuses on the virtues of integrity and honesty. “The goal of the project is to provide a redefinition of manhood,” said Pastor Billy Joe. “In Romans 12:2 we read, ‘Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.’” Billy Joe asks young men to show him their friends and he’ll show the young men their future. “We can’t wait to reach these young men,” he said, “We must do it while they’re still in school and address ‘at risk’ issues before they become huge risks.” The Timothy Project is looking for sponsorships, grants and opportunities to team up with organizations that will help provide funding to expand the visions of young men. Pastor Theresa Watts leads The Rock’s Ladies of Royalty program, a monthly gathering of young women ages 18 to 25 looking to be everything God created them to be. “Our ladies are learning what it means to be a woman of royalty walking

in the promises of God. Our hopes are to bring our young women back to reality and teach them valuable life skills,” said Pastor Theresa. Many young women graduate from high school and find themselves asking, ‘Who am I? What do I do and where do I go now?’ If these young women had first found out who they were in Christ, they probably wouldn’t be having these thoughts now. Ladies of Royalty helps them understand what God wants for them. It teaches them to stop listening to worldly views and reality shows and start listening to and trusting in God.” Pastors Billy Joe and Theresa want all young people to be equipped to win in life and enjoy it to the fullest. “There is no progress without a process,” stated Pastor Billy Joe. “The Rock exposes all to something better in life!” Call or visit the website for information on worship services and other programs.

SStumped to Find a Quality Tree Company? S&W Tree Specialists offers a comprehensive menu of tree and yard services to prepare for the upcoming storm season.

By Christopher Davis

After a challenging and dynamic winter, spring is finally here. Before it is too late, preparations for severe storms and grueling heat should be made. And, if you are searching for tree and lawn services, look no further than S&W Tree Specialists. The S&W Tree family offers a comprehensive assortment of tree and yard services. Based in Broken Arrow, the family-owned business has been providing stellar service to commercial and private properties in the

region for years. From property maintenance to residential yards and tree care, S&W’s experts will help you prepare for the upcoming storm season and ensure your landscape is green and healthy for the summer. With accounts that include FedEx Ground, Brookhaven Hospital and properties, and Philbrook Museum, S&W has a proven record of maintaining highprofile landscapes and urban forests. Their commitment to

thorough, beautiful and healthy trees and yards extends to every job, no matter how big or small. One benefit of hiring S&W is their experience and ability to educate customers on how best to maintain attractive aesthetics while preserving the health of trees and plants. Joe Fansler, arborist, works with customers to determine the best approach to trimming trees. “I focus on getting them what they want and need," says Fansler. He

Joe Fansler and Bryan Merseburgh, S&W Tree Specialists.

NOW IS THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR TO TRIM AND CLEAN UP YOUR TREES. Severe weather can cause serious damage to your landscape. But strong, healthy trees and shrubs have a better chance of survival. Good preventative care is often the difference between little or no damage and serious or even life-threatening storm damage. Our ISA Certified Arborists can examine your trees to help eliminate the risk of breakage and increase overall health.

says early spring is the best time for tree fertilizing and trimming. Sometimes, though, a client may not realize a request, like tree topping, may severely damage the tree in question. “Reducing – where you selectively remove only about a third of the tree – is one thing,” Dale Hughes, manager, says, “but tree topping is bad for the trees.” He continues, “When you take away the foliage, you’re taking away the tree’s ability to produce chlorophyll.” If a tree is unable to effectively convert sunlight to energy, the tree will eventually die. The objective, instead, is to reduce a tree’s size in such a way that it is attractive, lives a healthy life and poses little to no threat during severe weather. In Oklahoma, storms can threaten trees (as well as homes and people) yearround. Hiring professionals who are willing to apply their experience and knowledge can mean the difference between a sturdy, safe and healthy tree and a hazard that can wreak havoc at any time. It's always better to be proactive than reactive. In times of emergency,

S&W is waiting for your call. Offering 24-hour emergency storm service, they have a crew prepared to handle any job. With heavy-duty, state-ofthe-art equipment and a fleet of trucks, you can rely on S&W to complete jobs efficiently and safely. In addition to full tree services, S&W provides excellent yard services. Bryan Merseburgh, lawn care supervisor, oversees crews who provide lawn care, insecticide and fertilizer services. Merseburgh and his crew make sure the same quality and attention devoted to tree services carries over to the yard. Whether in need of tree or yard services, customers can count on S&W Tree Specialists to keep trees and landscapes green and healthy. With spring in full bloom, now is the time to make sure every step is taken to protect your plants for the summer.

PPurses of Hope Attend the silent auction event benefitting local pediatric cancer patients on Sunday, April 6.

By Sheryl Sowell

Pierce Phillips, a beautiful baby boy with captivating blue eyes, was born on July 30, 2007 to Scott and Brandi Phillips. Pierce was an easygoing child, and people often referred to him as an old soul because of his demeanor and eyes that seemed to be full of wisdom. At 13 months old, Pierce was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, an especially deadly form of cancer. Pierce underwent several forms of treatment including high dose chemotherapy, surgeries,

Pierce Phillips was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at only 13 months old.

radiation and immunotherapy. After these aggressive treatments, Pierce achieved NED status; no evidence of cancer was detected. His family enjoyed the next few months at their home in Tulsa with their healthy son. Unfortunately, Pierce’s disease was highly relentless and returned. In the arms of his mother and surrounded by family, Pierce earned his angel wings on October 9, 2009. Childhood cancer occurs regularly, randomly, and spares no ethnic group, socioeconomic class, or geographic region. One in 133 children will have been diagnosed with cancer by the time they reach the age of 20. Each year, 4,000 children die from cancer – 11 children every single day, every single year. Since 2010, Pierce Phillips Charity, started by Scott and Brandi in memory of their son, has helped fund three Phase 1 Clinical Trials, currently being conducted at various cancer research centers throughout the United States, and supported

numerous Tulsa families with children who are fighting cancer. Pierce’s grandmother, Margie Day, created the Purses of Hope event five years to help local families in need of assistance during this emotionally and financially draining time. “When a child battles cancer, it is very expensive. The silent auction event raises money to help families in any way that they need it, including house and car payments, gas cards and medications. Each family is allowed to apply for financial help once a year,” says Margie. “My girlfriends Cynthia Hoffman, Donna Peabody and Patricia Phillips (Pierce’s other grandmother) are the best and really are the ones that make this happen. They supply and donate all the food and their time. If it were not for them, there is no way this event could take place.” The 5th annual Purses of Hope will be held Sunday, April 6 at 2:30 p.m. at Bar H Vista Farm in Mounds, 20 minutes south of Tulsa.

Margie Day (second from right) and friends show a few of the purses that will be available at Purses of Hope.

Attendees will enjoy refreshments while bidding on their favorites among 50+ purses in the silent auction. “The purses are either new or gently used and include brands like Coach and Kate Spade,” says Margie. “There is a purse for every style and price range.” All proceeds will provide financial support for area pediatric cancer patients via the Pierce Phillips Charity Grant Program. In addition, the event will help fund Bingo Night and Candy Bar Night, a bi-weekly program at St. Francis Children’s Hospital. Those who bring a new toy to Purses of Hope will be entered into the drawing for a variety of door prizes. The toys collected will be distributed during Bingo Nights. “We need toys for

boys and girls ages three months to 16 years. We are always looking for new ideas for older kids, such as iTunes gift cards, knitting kits, nail polish and model kits.” Admission is $10 in advance online at www.piercephillipscharity.org or $15 at the door. Bar H Vista Farm is located at 18451 S. Lewis Ave in Mounds. Take Highway 75 South; turn east on 181st Street, right on Lewis, and go a half-mile to the large white fence and follow the road to the barn.

affordable walk-in tubs and walk-in showers. Who doesn’t enjoy the simple pleasure in taking the time to relax with a warm bath and letting the pressing moments of the day simply pass away for the moment? The aches and pains many of us feel now that we’ve grown older seem to subside with the refreshing warmth provided by spending time in the water. Unfortunately for many aging Americans with mobility issues, stepping into a bath can result in slipping and falling into the tub or onto the floor. This fear of falling has made the simple act of bathing and its therapeutic benefits something many no longer feel comfortable doing. Designed for Seniors® recently partnered with Jacuzzi®, the company we all know as having perfected hydrotherapy. “Together, they have created walk-in tubs and showers that offer more than just safe bathing, peace-ofmind and independence. The resulting products can actually help us feel better,” said Greg. “We recommend

the store was first located by the old Tulsa stock yards on Charles Page Boulevard.” The boys’ dad, Albert Jr. (aka Buz), and his brother, Richard, took over the business in 1965. “Greg and I literally grew up at the stock yards and the store,” said

Brett. “We were kept busy each summer washin’ saddles and swattin’ flies to keep out of trouble.” Mock Brothers Saddlery moved to its current location west of Tulsa and Sand Springs in 1976, and Brett and Greg bought their

LLet Your Personal Style Shine Twisted Soul Sisters specializes in custom jewelry and Southern fashion with flair.

By Stephanie Reed

Amid the sparkle and creative chaos, Bixby boutique owners Kelly Corey and Marti Coleman sit engrossed in creating custom jewelry with vintage embellishments. “The combination of the custom style and repurposing of vintage pieces ensures that customers will never purchase something and then run into it someplace else,” Kelly

explains. “We cater to the individual, and we want the individual’s style to shine.” The pair encourages customers to bring vintage pieces long forgotten from a family member’s collection, or to choose from a plethora of pieces available in the store. Once the embellishments are chosen, the ladies go to work creating

and stamping made-to-order necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Along with custom jewelry, Twisted Soul Sisters also offers Jane Marie and Lenny and Eva jewelry. Both lines feature interchangeable charms to make going from bracelets to necklaces a breeze. With 22 different

clothing lines gracing the racks, and boots from Old Gringo, Corral, and Liberty Black, Twisted Soul Sisters has the outfit to make any occasion. Patrons are sure to find an exceptional head-totoe look with brands that are unique to the Tulsa area. “We want ladies to be able to find the perfect outfit for that special event, whether it is a date or a concert,” Kelly says. “Our customers can be completely outfitted without the mall feel.” While Twisted Soul Sisters is certainly not a mall, the boutique does manage to have something for everyone on your list. With brands like Shannon Martin, and her signature flasks and coasters, along with Mud Pie, the store carries great hostess gifts and a little something for the hard-to-buy-for crowd. And when you find that perfect gift, be sure to take advantage of the free gift wrapping. Can’t decide which gift is more perfect than the next? No worries, gift cards are always available. In addition to great gifts, Plaster Paint is another hot item in the store. It is an affordable, no-prep paint that works beautifully on a variety

of surfaces – even metals. Extremely versatile, plaster paint comes in 30 different colors and is around half the price of its leading competitors. Twisted Soul Sisters offers regular promotions and layaway for boots and clothing. Savings range from 25 percent off denim to BOGO T-shirts to 20 percent off custom jewelry creations. "Like our Twisted Soul Sisters Facebook page and watch for special Thursday dates when we host Ladies' Nights and stay open late. You'll also find out about new merchandise and store specials," says Kelly. The spring collection is in; check out the new arrivals for a sassy look, and pick out a gift for your own soul sister.

TThe Name Says It All Dun-Rite Roofing is an established Oklahoma roofing company with a desire to please.

By Duane Blankenship

Jim Murr, president of DunRite Roofing, says the company was established in 1992 as a small business providing roofing services for mostly “new construction” home builders. Today the company has multiple roofing crews that provide roofs for both new construction and complete tear off and roof replacements, including wind and hail repair, as well as seamless guttering. They are

members of the Oklahoma Roofing Contractors Association (ORCA), Home Builders Association of Greater Tulsa, and work with Habitat for Humanity. Jim’s philosophy has always been to treat his customers as he himself would like to be treated. “One of my biggest annoyances is high-pressure salesmen. I assure you, we value any opportunity to quote your

roofing job and your project is very important to us. But once we’ve met with you and have provided a free estimate and proposal, we will not keep contacting you unless you request that we do so.” Dun-Rite Roofing has served customers throughout the state of Oklahoma as well as sections of southern Kansas. Services include all types of residential roofing, including metal, composition

Sales Manager Doug Hazelwood and President Jim Murr provide free estimates and inspections for Dun-Rite Roofing.

shingles (new construction and reroofs), wind and hail damage repair, seamless guttering, and attic ventilation. They work with builders, realtors and especially homeowners requiring roof services, inspections and recommendations. Shingle samples can be provided with your personal estimate, or you can always drop by the office showroom – open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – to make selections from multiple styles and manufacturers. When your roof is damaged from wind, ice or hail and requires maintenance, repair or replacement, you’ll find reassurance in knowing that Dun-Rite Roofing uses only the highest quality materials, and their roofers are proficient in installing everything from standing seam metal roofing, to all types of composition shingles. “Most of our employees have been with us for many years, and we stand behind the quality of their work with a five year ‘workmanship’ warranty, as well as whatever type of material warrantee is offered by the manufacturer,” says Jim. Dun-Rite Roofing is fully licensed and insured. You may recognize the well-known brands they carry: Tamko, GAF, Owens Corning, Malarkey and CertainTeed. With the storm season upon us, Jim cautions to be certain you know with whom you are contracting to do any repair work, making sure you’re talking with a locally

established company, and not just some guy in a pickup that blew into town with the latest wind and hail storm. The Oklahoma Roofing Contractor Registration Act was developed to regulate the roofing industry and protect consumers from fraudulent contractors. Make sure your contractor is properly registered. Although DunRite will be happy to assist you in filing any insurance claim, Jim says to be wary of any contractor wanting to file the claim for you. Every year, individuals and insurance companies are ripped off by fraudulent claims, leading to cancelled policies and higher premiums. Most companies can be found on the Better Business Bureau website as well as their ratings and reviews. The information is free and is a great way to gain knowledge about a potential contractor. Jim Murr and Dun-Rite Roofing are proud of the A+ record they’ve maintained with the BBB throughout the years. “When you need a roofing company, please keep Dun-Rite in mind,” said Jim. “We’ll be right here serving our friends and neighbors any time we’re needed.”

AAdvanced Cosmetic Enhancements Glow Medical Aesthetics now offers platelet-rich plasma, an innovative treatment in regenerative medicine.

By Deanna Rebro

“We cannot stop the aging process, but we can slow it down,” says Jenny Guthrie, owner of Glow Medical Aesthetics. For the past three

years, the advanced practitioner registered nurse and certified nurse practitioner has been helping clients look their best at any

age with safe and effective medical cosmetic procedures in a relaxing atmosphere. The latest offering on her long menu of skin care services is platelet-rich plasma. PRP is an emerging treatment in regenerative medicine. The treatment has been used in other medical venues for about 20 years, but recently its benefits were put to use in aesthetics. PRP works on the premise that the human body has an inherent ability to heal itself. In the simplest terms, platelets and plasma from the patient’s blood are spun and then reintroduced in facial areas to help restore volume. “PRP releases eight essential growth factors that stimulate the body to grow collagen to improve tone, texture and elasticity, reduce fine lines, and strengthen the skin,” Jenny explains. “It can even be used around the eyes.” Because all the elements retrieved in PRP are exclusively from the patient, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. Patients typically see results in six to eight weeks.

Other skin care offerings at Glow include Botox, antioxidants, facials and a variety of chemical peels. Men and women from their 20s to 80s come for help to reduce wrinkles, diminish skin lines and improve skin texture in general. Each patient’s history plays a big part in the health of their skin. Smoking, sun or tanning damage can show ill effects on the youngest of faces. Acne scars make a big difference, too. “A lot of times patients tell me they are asked if they are tired, even when they aren’t,” she says. “Cosmetic fillers can help them look more refreshed.” Inflammation, redness, sunspots and uneven pigmentation are other common problems that she helps to minimize. The long-time medical professional says she takes great pleasure in creating beauty from a combination of art and science. Her artistic ability is backed by 18 years as a registered nurse, 13 years as a nurse practitioner in family practice and internal

medicine, five years in aesthetics, and three years in her own business. She understands the scientific principles of the techniques and products she uses and can explain why each of them was recommended for that patient. Jenny’s professional, individualized approach enables her to customize a treatment and maintenance plan that fits each patient’s condition, goals and budget.

World Malaria Day Is April 25th W Kairos10 celebrates past success and continues its efforts in the fight against malaria.

By Stephanie Reed

Malaria is a killer, a killer that claims one child’s life per minute. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2012 alone, malaria claimed the lives of 627,000 people, 86 percent of which were children, with a total of 207 million cases reported. These statistics tell us two very important things. The first – malaria is a vicious disease, and the

second – malaria is preventable and curable. Malaria is not a disease most Americans are familiar with. It is the name of a faraway sickness of little to no consequence for most of us. Unfortunately, that is simply not the case. In America, an average of 1,500 cases of malaria are reported annually, though the disease was eradicated in the 1950s.

Marked by vomiting, body aches, fever, and, if left untreated, death, malaria is transmitted through mosquito bites. Symptoms begin to occur seven to 30 days after infection; if antimalarial drugs have been taken, symptoms may take weeks or even months to manifest, often leading to misdiagnosis. The disease can lay dormant in the liver and reactivate

after periods of dormancy for two to even four years. Pregnant women and children under the age of five are particularly susceptible. Researchers have found that the best way to fight malaria is to prevent it. Mosquito nets, which shelter and protect five people, have proven especially effective. The problem – in the last year, major distributors have decreased the number of nets distributed, and the death toll has risen. According to WHO, the net distribution total is down 50 percent from 2010. The solution – local nonprofits are raising money to distribute nets in affected areas, and we can help. Phyllis Morris is one such individual who is helping; together with Katheryn Pennington, they founded Kairos10, a nonprofit dedicated to fighting malaria in Ghana. “This mission is so close to my heart. As a parent, when you see your children suffer, you will do anything to help ease their pain. We are so fortunate to have qualified doctors and hospitals, but so many families in Ghana have to watch their babies suffer and die. I can’t abide by that – not when there is something

that I can do to help prevent the illness,” explains Phyllis, a nurse. Kairos10 purchases Ghanaian beads made from recycled glass, vinyl records, bones, and brass from local merchants and pays native women to make jewelry. The jewelry is then sold in the United States, and the proceeds are used to purchase and distribute insecticidetreated bed nets. Thus far, Kairos10 has succeeded in protecting over 110,000 people from malaria through the distribution of mosquito nets. This April, in honor of World Malaria Day, we can all be heroes. Armed with the knowledge that malaria is not a sickness of long ago, we can all join in the fight to eradicate this killer.

HHonoring Youth in the Community Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Tulsa announce Youth of the Year award recipient, Neariah Persinger.

By Duane Blankenship

The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Tulsa build character by guiding area youth in everyday behavior and attitude. “Young people of all backgrounds are invited to join together in wholesome recreation and activities,” said Dustin Blackmon, unit director for the Salvation

Army Boys & Girls Club of Broken Arrow. Nationally recognized programs help young people succeed in school, stay healthy, learn important life skills, pursue interests in the arts and sports, and explore vocational choices. “And most importantly,” continued Blackmon, “our Boys & Girls

Salvation Army Youth of the Year Award winner Neariah Persinger celebrates with Faith Zackery and Bethany Jones, Jr., Youth of the Year nominees. All three are members of the Broken Arrow Club.

Clubs help youth in the area become productive, responsible and caring citizens by providing an environment that is conducive to the development of their potential. The overall goal of the organization is for all young people to recognize that great futures start here, and they start now.” The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Tulsa held its annual Youth of the Year Awards Banquet on February 20 at the University of Tulsa Allen Chapman Activity Center. The evening was highlighted with presentations by the four finalists representing the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Tulsa. Candidates were Neariah Persinger, Broken Arrow; J’Day McIntosh, Mabee Red Shield; Devin Duckett, North Mabee; and Miana McHenry, West Mabee. The 2014 Youth of the Year award winner is Neariah Persinger, a student at New Covenant Academy in Broken Arrow. “This is a great honor for Neariah,” said Blackmon, “and for the

Boys & Girls Club of Broken Arrow.” Neariah is a delightful young lady who exudes personality. She’s a hard worker and full of energy. Her abundance of enthusiasm is contagious and makes you feel good when you’re in her presence. “Neariah has been a member of the Broken Arrow Club for eight years,” said Broken Arrow Program Director Sa’Quita Burrell. “She’s a valued asset.” Neariah is in training for the Jr. Olympics and currently holds several Oklahoma swimming records in her specialties, the butterfly and freestyle. Her coach is her mom, who was an Olympic swimmer. Neariah says she hopes to one day represent the United States in the Summer Olympic Games. David Litterell, executive director, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Tulsa, made opening introductions at the awards banquet and a welcome was issued by Aaron Massey, club advisory council chairman. Major James Taylor, Salvation Army area commander, introduced the evening’s honored guest

speaker, Major Clay Satcher, who brought the Boys & Girls Clubs to Tulsa. Major Satcher arrived here in 1946 and was responsible for the building of a gymnasium in downtown Tulsa in 1948, the beginnings of the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs. Major Satcher expressed appreciation for the 60 wonderful years he spent in Tulsa. “If you love people and want to serve them,” said the Major, “the Salvation Army is a great place to do it.” Danny Roe was the recipient of the first annual Clay Satcher Youth Development Award for his eleven years of service on the advisory board, for his handson approach to service, and for the many years he served as council president.

EEggstraordinary Easter Gifts Shop The Nut House on historic Route 66 for unique candy and gifts.

By Carol Beck-Round

Easter is around the corner and if you want to add delicious goodies and unique items to your baskets or purchase a gift for someone special, The Nut House on historic Route 66 is the place to go. The vast array of products available at one of Claremore’s most famous destinations won’t be found in your local grocery store or any big-box store. Many are one-of-a-kind, made-in-house products that will have you returning time and again to check out the new offerings – and you’ll never leave empty handed, even if it’s just for a piece of the decadent, twoinch thick, quarter-pound squares of fudge. Some customers just brake for the fudge and “many look like they’re having fudge withdrawals when they walk through the doors,” laughs Hazel Ward, owner of The Nut House. With over 18 different flavors of fudge available six days a week, it’s no wonder The Nut House has earned a reputation for the best homemade fudge in the area. “We will be offering some special fudge for Easter

along with chocolate-covered marshmallows,” says Hazel. “We make our own marshmallows which are heads above what you buy at the grocery store. Our confections are fresh with a really nice texture – they’re soft, not stretchy – and they are larger than what you find in a grocery store.” The marshmallow treats will also be decorated for Easter. “They’re great to put in a child’s Easter basket or as a gift to a friend,” she adds. Other wonderful Easter ideas include chocolatecovered strawberries and Peeps dipped in chocolate and decorated for Easter. “After dipping them in chocolate, we dress them up like they’re going to church,” says Hazel. “They’re really cute.” The Nut House also has an assortment of other Easter candy, stuffed animals, jewelry, candles, car charms and items of a spiritual nature that make great gifts or that can be added to a special basket for gift-giving. At The Nut House, one of the popular gifts available is personalized Easter baskets.

• Chocolate-Covered Marshmallows • 18 Flavors of Fudge • Easter Chocolate-Covered Peeps

Baskets, which run from $30 and up, are created more for adult gift-giving, according to Hazel. “We offer baskets that are often built around a sentimental item. For example, we’ve had customers bring in the photo of an ultrasound to announce to their family members that they are expecting a baby,” she says. “The cost varies based on the items a customer purchases here to include in their basket.” While you’re shopping for Easter goodies at The Nut House, don’t forget to check out Hot Mama’s Deli, where you can select from a variety of sandwiches, salads, sides and sweet treats. A lunch combo is offered each day. “We also have daily specials with offerings like beans and cornbread and Hobo Tacos. “All of our food is homecooked,” Hazel adds. On Saturday, April 5 beginning at 10 a.m., a Day of Tasting is planned with free food sampling of new products available at The Nut House. “We’ll be offering a variety of new items, including Cowboy Tom’s Gluten-Free Pancake Mixes,”

• Chocolate-Covered Strawberries • Personalized Baskets Perfect for Gift-Giving

A Dental Plan to Make You Smile continued from page 1 the cost of dental care is going to third parties: the insurance companies, claims form administrators and collection costs. When a potential dental problem is detected early – through regular exams and preventive procedures including cleanings and fluoride treatments – and then treated, it inherently saves you money, much more than if you wait to receive treatment after the problem has become a greater issue. You’ve heard the old saying, “Pay me now or pay me later.” When Dr. White and his staff saw the hundreds of dollars families were spending for treatments that could have been avoided by early detection through simple routine checkups, they chose to put a tailored plan in action that is currently being made available in selected dental offices across the nation. The plan is both simple and ingenious and is called QDP (Quality Dental Plan). Dr. White says, “I have found that we can offer free exams, free teeth cleanings with all necessary exams and 20 percent off most dental procedures, by offering our own in-house dental savings plan. QDP eliminates the insurance company middle man and their huge profits, and puts the savings back in your pocket.” Dr. White said the premiums individuals or employers pay for dental insurance more than covers the costs of two cleanings, exams and pre-

ventive care in most dental offices. Instead of wasting these dollars on excessive premiums, they can be used instead for needed treatment. With this plan, you and your family will have no reason to avoid recommended check-ups and cleanings. Dr. White also hopes that the cost savings potential of QDP will make sense to employers as an alternative to offering current dental insurance options to their employees. When you visit “White Smile,” you’ll find a full range of services utilizing only the latest materials, techniques and technologies available. They have a beautiful, comfortable office with a friendly, caring and helpful staff. Call the office of White Cosmetic and Family Dentistry and schedule a consultation to receive additional information about their in-house QDP.

BBuilding with Pride Inola Portable Buildings & Pole Barns offers variety and top-grade work.

By Carol Beck-Round

Inola Portable Buildings has a reputation – a good one. According to owner Carl Parson, “Customers drive from Bristow, Sapulpa, Tulsa and beyond to purchase their portable buildings from us.” Whether you need a storage building, pole barn, loafing shed, metal garage, cabin or other portable building, Inola Portable

Buildings & Pole Barns can meet your needs. In business since 1998, they have earned an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. “We only use top-grade materials on everything we build,” says Parson, who before starting his company had been in the construction and roofing business for 20 years. His experience in that

field has carried over to the quality he delivers in every product his company makes, whether it is metal or wood. At the business, located off the north side of Highway 412 at 30355 S. 4230 Rd., you can browse through more than 50 displays available. Buildings can be delivered or built on location, but about 90 percent of the business’

Carl Parson, owner of Inola Portable Buildings & Pole Barns.

www.ValueNews.com work is done on location. “We’ve also built carports and RV covers as well as allmetal garages,” he adds. “We stay busy and can do custom work. If you have an idea for a building that you would like, just ask.” In the company’s 16-year history, “We have never had a complaint about our buildings,” says Parson. “Our business has grown through word of mouth. We started with two buildings when we opened and it just continues to grow each year even though we are located in an out-of-the-way place. We’ve found that if you do everything better than the next guy, you’ll stay busy.” While they do mainly residential work, the company has expanded – again by referrals – to include portable building projects at public schools in Claremore, Jay, Catoosa, Inola, Locust Grove and Tulsa, as well as businesses such as Arby’s. “We have built storage buildings for Arby’s all over northeastern Oklahoma,” he says. “We have also constructed portable buildings for the City of Tulsa.” Conventional or Dutch Barn portable buildings include treated skids along with treated floor joists on 16-inch centers, ¾-inch tongue and groove flooring, #2 stud grade materials, a 25year factory warranty on Smart trim, 25-year warranty on Smart panel siding, 30# felt paper and a 30-year warranty on Tamko shingles.

Extras, like steel doors, windows, 4-foot loft, work bench and a 4-foot treated ramp, are available at an additional charge. Sizes begin at 8x8 up to 16x24 and larger. Pole barns, which range in size from 24x24 to 40x60, include one walk-in door and one 9x8 overhead door. An additional door is available for an extra charge. The company offers a 40-year manufacturer’s warranty on the 29-gauge metal used in the pole barns and loafing sheds while the insulation comes with a manufacturer’s 10-year warranty. Also included in the base price is a 4-inch concrete slab with rebar 18-inch on center in floor and 10-foot sidewalls. “We can build a pole barn, concrete included, within a week,” says Parson. “We can complete a portable building – built on site – in one day.” Although they are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, Parson will meet with potential customers at a different time to accommodate their schedules. “They just need to give us a call and we can work it out.” The company also offers rent-to-own options.

GGreen Grass Sooner, Not Later SoonerLawn has earned a reputation for quick results and healthy grass.

By Christopher Davis

SoonerLawn specializes in services designed to deliver quick results. For clients seeking lush, green grass, free of weeds and pests, look no further than SoonerLawn. Owned by U.S. Army Captain Michael Bolton, SoonerLawn has revived and maintained lawns in the Tulsa area for 10 years. With a portfolio of accounts ranging from commercial to residential, there are plenty of success stories related to their six-step lawn care program. Among the happy customers is the Reserve at Battle Creek, where the presi-

dent and landscaping chairman voices his satisfaction with SoonerLawn. But with lawns’ colors speak louder than words. Wherever one sees SoonerLawn trucks working, green grass will be found sooner, not later. The key to SoonerLawn’s success is striking the right balance of fertilizers and weed control, as well as pest control. Fertilization and weed control are both crucial to maintaining a healthy, green lawn. Anyone who has taken the DIY approach to lawn care is familiar with trial and

error in the yard. Too much fertilizer – or the wrong mixture – means the grass will burn up and die, effecting the exact opposite of the intended result. SoonerLawn will determine the proper right mix of fertilizer to ensure grass thrives with minimal effort on the owner’s part. “It is important to water following fertilization,” says Bolton. With proper fertilization and watering cycles, owners will see positive results. Within weeks, thick, healthy grass will be growing. But as healthy grass takes off, so can weeds.

to worry about is watering and mowing. However, pests can undo even the best efforts at lawn care. SoonerLawn provides pest control, giving grass the defense it needs against major enemies like ants, chinch bugs and moles. Though such battles can be frustrating and long-term, Bolton and his staff will apply insecticides or repellents to get the problem under control. No more brown patches. No more anthills, molehills or gopher mounds to interrupt the sea of green or disrupt lawn mowing. At the end of the day, establishing and maintaining a lush, green yard is the goal. SoonerLawn takes the fuss and effort away from the owner. With their expertise and equipment, they are prepared to take on the burden of assessing lawn care needs and executing the appropriate solutions.

Be proud of your lush, green lawn with the help of SoonerLawn.

SoonerLawn also discerns which herbicide to apply in order to control weeds, giving desired turf the best opportunity to grow without competition in the yard. As with fertilization, weed control is not a one-size-fits-all approach, requiring experts in order to do the job properly. SoonerLawn will assess which weeds are problems, in which areas, and apply appropriate mixtures and amounts to kill off weeds. Aeration is an often-overlooked process with lawn care. Essentially, aeration entails the creation of small holes underneath grass, allowing nutrients, oxygen and water to better reach the roots. Since most lawns serve as outdoor floors for kids, pets and fun activities, it does not take long for ground to get so compacted that grass cannot thrive. SoonerLawn uses a machine to systematically pull out small plugs of dirt, allowing roots to stretch out, breathe and feed much more comfortably. Bolton recommends aeration at least twice per year for most lawns. “Spring and fall are the ideal times for aeration,” he says. With fertilization, weed control and aeration in place, one may believe all that is left
