Depot Agreement Reached – Says Bristow Mayor Washington

It seems much of Bristow has been abuzz about the apparent rift between the Bristow Chamber and the Bristow Historical Society. At issue was use of the Train Depot space during the Christmas Unwrapped event, hosted by the Chamber. Within a minute of calling the City Council session into order, Mayor Leonard Washington spoke the words everyone wanted to hear, "I am pleased to announce that we have come to an agreement". The full house of interested citizens applauded the positive development.

Christmas Unwrapped Creates Major Rift With Bristow Historical Society

I just read the statement from the Bristow Chamber of Commerce on Facebook. As most of you likely know, both the Bristow Chamber and the Bristow Historical Society (and its museum) share the space in the Depot, leasing said space from the City of Bristow. The statement from the Chamber concludes that should the Historical Society fail to vacate their space for the 3 months tied to the Christmas Unwrapped event, that the Chamber will suffer significant financial difficulties and likely would just dissolve the organization. Sadly, also mentioned was the likelihood of all the Chamber events being cancelled should the Chamber fold up its tent.

The Beach House Doin’ It Right

What we do - how we react to adversity tells us a lot about who we are and what we calue. A few days ago an apparent electrical fire forced the temporary closure of the Beach House Restaurant in Bristow. The fire itself wasn't devastating, but its repercussions might have been for a number of its employees. What would the loss of a paycheck for weeks do to you? For many or most, it could be hugely scary. Thankfully, for the employees of the Beach House, those fears are gone.

The Official Unveiling of Be Love Yoga Studio Bristow – Saturday!

For Kris, this is 'no dream come true', rather a series of events and forks in the road that led her to this day and new beginning. Her first exposure to yoga came just a few years ago. She went to a class in Tulsa unsure of what to expect - I expect as many do in being introduced to yoga. She came out of that class and mused, "Holy cow, what just happened to my head?". What happened was a new calm - a quieting of the 'noise and clutter' between the ears that so many of us experience much of the time. Kris went back for another class.
