Building Fields for our Future

Kids dream big, whether it's about becoming a football player, astronaut, nurse, or fireman. But not everyone has the same opportunity to pursue their dreams. That's the idea behind Fields & Futures, a program that encourages Oklahoma City Public Schools (OKCPS) students to join a team and gain valuable life skills, so they can succeed in the classroom – and in life.

The Yellow that Makes the Green

Gold courses. Picture the graceful rolling hills, lush foliage, and serene lakes and wooded areas. While seemingly peaceful, they often stand as a proving ground. Where deals are made. Politics are played. And respect is earned or lost. Requiring exceptional skill, focus, and self-discipline, golf courses are meticulously designed, built, and maintained to test players' balance of competitiveness and sportsmanship. They can bring great joy – or immense frustration. And you're about to meet one of the men responsible for it all.


Monstrous Undertaking

Whoever said "The only difference between men and boys is the size and cost of their toys" must have had the Monster Jam in mind.® Where else would you find 1,500-hp "trucks on steroids" doing donuts, wheelies, 30-ft.-high jumps, and various other freestyle stunts on an indoor dirt track?
