If you have spent any time in Medicine Park or Lawton you would have met Edna Hennessee and once having met Edna you would always remember. Personality plus with a keen insight into business as well as people. Her generosity seem to have no bounds. Medicine Park has benefited from this generosity. We extend our sympathy to her son Odus Hennessee, vice mayor of Medicine Park, his wife Jessica and their children and grandchildren. Our sympathy goes out to her granddaughter Jennifer Ellis (president of Cosmetic Specialty Lab) her husband Mark and their family. And to all grandchildren.

Who knew it would be so much fun this weekend and that the sun would shine again on the Park. Mayor Cope did have some idea of how perfect Blue Grass music would be for Medicine Park after all he lined up the bands after hearing them (several of them under the MudStomp label) at a couple of venues. The tone was joyful from Bands on stage and from the audience listening and watching. I got to see and hear them all. It got folks up & dancing. It was seriously fun music. Ireland's Call (from Limerick Ireland) though not blue grass was an early St. Patty's day surprise. And I had my favorites but I have to say it was all good. But I want to thank Ireland's Call for the Jig sent out to me. For some it may have been the first time hearing the washboard being played both Ben Miller Band and Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy Band or the rare uilleann pipe made by Mickey Dunne not to mention the washtub base. Deadman Flats stood and delivered with gusto to the stomping in the Ben Miller Band weekend. I really dug the gravely voice of Jarrod Starling of Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy Band. The accordian added into the mix for the Whistle Pigs. And oh that fiddler Rachel Ammons of Tyrannosuarus Chicken, amazing!
