LOOK BACK, LOOK WEST

By LeRoy Jones

David L. Clark opened his one-man-operation of making candy in Pittsburgh, Pensylvannia, back in 1886. He did the manufacturing, delivering, selling and bookkeeping. He made various types of candies up until the time of World War I but then began making a candy bar to satisfy the taste of the many soldiers at the time.

Pet Corner

by De De Young

We should not expect our dog to do something just because we want him to. They are very eager to please, but just like us, there is a limit. Just because we buy a herding breed, it doesn't mean we will get a cow dog. Or, if we get a Golden Retriever, it doesn’t mean he will like to hunt or swim.

Working Hard for Oklahoma

By Governor Mary Fallin
 
Domestic violence affects one in four women. Sadly, Oklahoma is ranked sixth in the nation in the number of women murdered by men. This epidemic affects people of all demographics and communities, extending from the home to the workplace. Statistics like these are why the state of Oklahoma and Verizon have participated in raising awareness on these issues year after year in conjunction with Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

ALL THE WAY TO MARS

By LeRoy Jones

Frank C. Mars and his wife lived in Tacoma, Washington, back in 1911, when they began making candy in their home kitchen. In 1920, Frank moved his family to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and into larger quarters. Here he created his first candy bar, called the Mar-O-Bar. He even named his candy making company the Mar-O-Bar Company. The Mar-O-Bar was not well received by the buying public.

House Report

By State Representative Todd Russ

 

Those Oklahomans seeking to divide us would argue that Republicans support business and Democrats support workers. It simply isn’t the case. A lot of conservative policies are aimed at growing business with the intent of creating more jobs and better economic prosperity and freedom for all Oklahomans.

MORE CURTISS PRODUCTS

By LeRoy Jones

 

Otto Schnering was sold on his Baby Ruth candy bar to the extent that he gave them away. Not only did he advertise in magazines and newspapers, as a gimmick he arranged for an airplane to be flown over Pittsburgh one summer day in 1923, and drop Baby Ruth bars on the city.

Pet Corner

by De De Young
 
When we choose a dog as a family pet, that we are going to enjoy for several years, it is so important we get the right dog for our family. If you have an easy going low key family, then you need a low energy dog. They are the easiest and do not require a lot of exercise.

Working Hard for Oklahoma

By Governor Mary Fallin
 
For the next several weeks, I am traveling across the state in a series of meetings promoting a workforce and education initiative called “Oklahoma Works.” The meetings, co-hosted by the State Chamber of Oklahoma, promote a much-needed dialogue between education professionals and employers in both the public and private sector.
