Recently the Ada area (colloquially known around here as “Greater Ader”) has been cultivating some national fame.
As you know, Taylor Treat is slated to compete in the Miss America Pageant in a week. It will be the first Miss America I have watched since I was about eight.
ESPN sports icon Kenny Mayne was here yesterday to debunk the urban legend that it is illegal to possess or wear New York Jets paraphernalia in Ada.
Jet and Cord McCoy of nearby Tupelo, Okla., will be part of the CBS reality TV show “The Amazing Race,” set to begin airing Sunday, Feb. 14. Cord is an acclaimed international rodeo star.
“Is that a Nikkor lens pointing toward me or are you just happy to see me?”
Sorry; couldn’t resist. :-)
I wish we could be together to watch the pageant, with popcorn and such. Also? No one down here is named “Cord”.
I didn’t know the pageant was still on the air. Did she win? She’s prettier than most Miss America contestants.
