The Chicken Shack

In the backyard of the Deep Fork River, an unmarked shack is home to some of the best broasted chicken in Oklahoma. Without a sign, it feels like a secret hideout waiting to be discovered. Even the owner gives off an almost Capone-like vibe.

Commentary

Lives on the Line

National studies have consistently ranked the lineworker profession as one of the most hazardous occupations in the market. More often than not, however, linemen are unsung heroes. We are accustomed to having electricity as a reliable service; therefore, we typically take it for granted until we don’t have it. When that happens, our linemen rise to the occasion—regardless of the circumstances—to restore power as safely and as quickly as possible.


The power of togetherness

During the last 12 months, I have had the distinct privilege of serving as Board President for the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives, the service organization that represents Oklahoma’s 30 electric cooperative member-systems. The opportunity to serve in this capacity allowed me to observe the strength of the cooperative network with a closer eye.
