Houston Texas Energy Conference 2019 Representing the Wind Energy, for Mortonson Corperation


This year I am traveling to Houston to take part in the Energy Conference on May 21st. Mortenson Corp. a fantastic company utilizing wind to produce energy. I stopped and spoke with some of the people who haul and set them up the wind turbines.  I want to learn all I can about the benefits of the Wind energy.



Energy Sector Expects 2019 Growth in Renewable and Natural Gas Projects.

The oil industry converges this week on Houston at CERAWeek, the largest gathering of top energy executives in the Americas, with oil majors showing a bigger presence as the United States has taken the crown as the largest crude producer in the world.

After a year that saw international crude oil prices surge to more than $87 a barrel in the fall then tumble, the market has been calmer of late, even with production limitations imposed by a combination of OPEC’s output cuts and large-scale sanctions placed on Iran and Venezuela by the United States.
U.S. crude output has rocketed to more than 12 million barrels a day, surpassing former leaders Russia and Saudi Arabia, but that success comes as independent U.S. shale companies are reducing drilling under pressure from investors demanding improved returns.
Even with prices at relatively stable levels, U.S. sanctions on Iran and Venezuela could disrupt the current calm. It remains unclear whether the United States will continue to offer some Iranian oil buyers purchase waivers, and whether Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro will face additional sanctions.
Both U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Energy Secretary Rick Perry will speak at the conference.

Dan Alderson Director of Energy Assistance for ATMOS Energy & NEUAC Entertained Guest in Phoenix AZ for a good cause…


AS you’ll know I’m always happy to spin a rope for a good cause, and this past weekend I had the chance to work with Daniel Alderson the Director of Energy Assistance for ATMOS Energy and now also NEUAC for almost 20 years. Some years ago Dan and I were in the Rodeo Association (NHSRA) togeather and this past week I got the chance to take center stage with Dan at the Convention in Phoenix AZ at the Sheraton Grand. With over 750 guests Dan and I talked about the 2019 convention and we invited everyone to attend in Texas at the OMNI Convention Center.

I spun a few loops and I got to having fun on stage with Dan, and I stated if everyone showed up at next year’s convention in 2019,  Id get Dan on the back of Bucking Bull. And as an after thought if I can’t get a live Bull which I may but if not I will bring in an electric Bull and tie him on. I have no doubt Dan can cover a bout any Bull one time for 8 seconds but its not the ride I’m figuring will get him, but the sudden stop when he hits the ground. Dan and I don’t recover like we use to but if he rids one Ill do the same.


Atmos Energy Corporation, headquartered are in Dallas one of the country’s largest natural-gas-only distributors, serving over three million natural gas distribution customers in over 1,400 communities in eight states from the Blue Ridge Mountains in the East to the Rocky Mountains in the West.


Dan has the characteristics and represents white hat wearing good guy cowboy. Like the cowboys of old west who were called upon to help those pioneers travel west, Dan stands strong taking on DC in getting the assistance needed to help those who need it most.

A benefit for Muskogee kidney patient Chris Watson will be at 4 p.m. Saturday.

Entertainment includes Muskogee country-western singer Maddie K. Parks and trick roper Marty Tipton, “The Oklahoma Kid.”
A Shawnee resident, Tipton describes himself as a fourth-generation lasso-spinning artist with family ties to Will Rogers. According to his website, Tipton has been performing since he was 9 years old and has toured from New York to Los Angeles.

Tipton said he enjoys performing for benefits.
Saturday’s event also will feature a silent auction, which includes an acoustic guitar, a Baby Lock BL9 sewing machine, a 1980s vintage drum set and a $250 Champion Fitness gift certificate.
Food will be provided by Runt’s Bar-B-Que and Charlie’s Chicken.
Characters from Muskogee’s Princesses 4 A Cause will meet people at the door.
Princesses 4 A Cause founder Marcella Paige said the group is made up of teen volunteers who dress up as fairy tale princesses and superheroes. She said they attend benefits and special events. They also visit children in the hospital.

Muskogee Princesses (and superheroes) 4 A Cause will greet people Saturday afternoon at a benefit at Three Rivers Museum.

“It’s amazing, all the kids that participate in the events,” Paige said. “When they should be going to the movies or going out with friends, they stop all that and volunteer, just to bring joy to the kids. That’s amazing.”
Watson’s sister, Angie Rush, said friends and family are conducting the fundraiser. She said her brother was born with one kidney, which has failed.

“They’re doing the fundraiser to raise money to not only get a transplant, but also help with pre-expenses and post expenses, plus, any medical expenses his insurance does not cover,” she said.
She said the family must make frequent trips to Oklahoma City, where the transplant team is.

Trick roper and humorist Marty Tipton, “The Oklahoma Kid,” does a variety of lasso spinning stunts. He will perform Saturday at Three Rivers Museum.

Rush said her brother is in good shape, despite his kidney failure.
“He graduated from Muskogee High School in 2013,” she said, adding that he worked at Wal-Mart in Wagoner for a few years until his health began to deteriorate.
“It makes a big difference for him to get the treatment he needs and the medicine he needs,” she said.
