I just think this is cool – probably because I LOVE Lee Ann Womack. Lee Ann sent out a Tweet last night asking for favorite Gary Stewart songs and I replied…and she re-tweeted my tweet!
I’ve had a few other celebrities/musicians/comedians send me messages (Courtyard Hounds – Emily & Marty of the Dixie Chicks, Luke Dick, Shy Blakeman, and Kelly Carlin – George’s daughter). But I think this is the first time one gave me a RT.
Here is the song I replied with and after this video is one of my favorite Lee Ann songs.
When it reached 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 13 the official filing period for candidates in Oklahoma ended.
This year only two state-wide offices were on the ballot – Bob Anthony’s Corporation Commission seat and because she was appointed by the Governor after Jeff Cloud resigned, Patrice Douglas’ Corporation Commission seat. Commissioner Douglas did not draw an opponent – so she is elected. Commissioner Anthony drew a Republican opponent, so that seat will be determined in the Republican Primary.
Only the odd number districts in the State Senate are up this year. Of those 24 seats, six were automatically elected when they drew no opponents (all were Republicans).
All 101 State House seats are up this year. Of the 101 seats, 53 drew no opponents guaranteeing their elections. 19 of those who drew no opponent are Democrats. Congratulations to my Democratic friends:
- Rep. Curtis McDaniel – District 1
- Rep. Mike Brown – District 4
- Rep. Chuck Hoskin – District 6
- Rep. Larry Glenn – District 7
- Rep. Ben Sherrer – District 8
- Rep. Jerry McPeak – District 13
- Rep. Ed Cannaday – District 15
- Rep. Brian Renegar – District 17
- Rep. R.C. Pruett – District 19

1925 – Oklahoma shield flag adopted
In 1925 a contest was held for a new design for the flag. Mrs. George Fluke, Jr.’s design was chosen and officially adopted by the State Legislature on April 2, 1925. Her design represented Oklahoma’s Native American heritage by showing an Osage warrior’s buckskin shield, decorated with pendant eagle feathers on a sky blue field. Crossing the shield are a peace pipe and olive branch representing peace and unity from the cultures of the Native American and European-American settlers. In 1941 “OKLAHOMA” was added in white letters below the shield. more…
