LIVING WITH CHILDREN: Sassiness shouldn’t be ‘normal’ for 5-year-old
Q: The “sassiness” that I have heard so much about from my friends started a few months ago with my 5-year-old daughter. She will say things to me that I actually find myself tongue-tied on how or what to say to correct her. Sometimes, she apologizes, which tells me she knows she’s talking disrespectfully to me. What do you think about 10 minutes of time out for this sort of thing? Also, on a recent vacation with another family in which there are two other girls around the same age, my daughter became very competitive. She constantly wanted to “race” to see who would be first, for example. Is this normal for this age?

Morgan’s Mug a delicious memory for Edmond pro
As one of Oklahoma’s favorite sons playing in the U. S. Senior Open Championship at Oak Tree National this week, the scorching heat reminded Dr. Gil Morgan, of Edmond, of earlier and more pleasant days in the Sooner State.
After carding a 1-over 72 to lead the “Oak Tree Gang” after the first day of the tourney Thursday, he got into bogey trouble on the back 9 and came in with a 5-over 76 with an excellent chance to make the cut.
Charlie is in charge of volunteers
If you’ve got a problem at the U.S. Senior Open Championship, odds are Charlie Pierce will know.
As the chief field marshal, he’s the man who is in charge of more than a 1,000 volunteers and by default the resident problem-solver at Oak Tree National. This week’s senior championship, which runs through Sunday in Edmond, marks the eighth time he’s volunteered at a senior open; he’s worked six women’s opens; and one PGA Open.
And he does it all for free.
Are America's biggest alcohol brands targeting the country's underage youth?
Underage drinkers - those between the ages of 18 and 20, most specifically - are more heavily exposed to printed alcohol advertisements than any other age group, according to a new study. And it's America's biggest booze companies that could be to blame.
All in the family
When golfers tee off for the 35th U.S. Senior Open Championship golf tournament at the immaculate yet challenging Oak Tree National course, brothers Jay and Jerry Haas will be just the eighth set of brothers to compete in the U.S. Senior Open, the first since Bobby and Lanny Watkins in 2009.
Older brother Jay, 60, is familiar with Oak Tree having won the 2006 Senior PGA Championship and was also in the field for the 1988 PGA Championship. For little brother Jerry, 50, the golf coach at Wake Forest University, it will be his first time as a member of the Champions Tour.

Oregon man takes a bike ride
One might wonder why 53-year-old Stephen Swift would hop on his bike and travel more than 14,000 miles, much less leave his hometown of Newport, Ore., to do so.
Swift said in Newport it never snows and never gets hot with temperatures ranging from 40 to 70 degrees, unlike the broiling days of summer in Oklahoma where the temperatures hover near 100 degrees. At least that is the way he remembers it.
