June Rent Will Soon Be Due: The Sheriff Doesn't Ring Twice

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

In the Oklahoma City metro area the sheriff was compassionate about the situation but indicated that evictions would take place. Leasing residential property is a business - not the mission of a nonprofit to provide shelter for human beings. This is capitalism.

As it turns out, Sonic Corporation, headquartered in Oklahoma City and Oklahoma City University have joined forces to offer Tiffany Clay a fall scholarship worth 100,000.

Are you quoting the King James Bible in your speeches?

The Eloquent Woman

s "I Have a Dream" speech and President Bill Clinton's remarks after the Oklahoma City bombing, which drew inspiring language from this elegant work. There's every chance that, when you give a speech or presentation, you're quoting from a 400-year-old reference book that you probably didn't even pick up or look at.

That year they faced a still powerful Shaquille O'Neal and a young, healthy Dwayne Wade.
