Oklahoma•Texas•Arkansas Current Issue...

November/December 2018 Issue

The Country Register of Texas and Oklahoma is published every two months. The time seems to fly by between issues.

For those who prefer to read on-line we are now publishing the complete paper here for you on our web site and will leave back issues on as well. How often we have been called and someone has given their paper away or misplaced it and needed the name or location of a shop, a tea room or wanted to know where there was a paper close to them.

The print edition will still be available as usual in each advertising shop and other select rack locations. Some people will always and forever prefer to sit down in a cozy chair with a cup of coffee or tea and read through the paper edition page by page. The younger generations are more apt to go on-line and so we hope to just broaden our readership and bring more customers to the shops because of this extra exposure.

 

 Cover Artist featured in this issue:

Mary Ann June 

Mary Ann was born in Weirton, West Virginia, a small town along the Ohio river.  The main industry at that time was Weirton Steel, an integrated steel maker that employed just about everybody.  But early on in her life, Mary Ann knew she wanted something else for herself so she started doing sketches of rock artist and other popular figures while still in grade school.

Mary Ann entered and won her first contest in junior high for designing a poster for “The King and I.”  And from then on she never looked back.  Some of her current designs include teddy bears, Christmas and sign art.  

When Mary Ann lost her sister Barbara after a prolonged illness, she set her brushes down and didn’t paint again until after her marriage.  With the encouragement of her husband, Mary Ann picked her brushes back up and made up for lost time.  Now she is back where she wants to be and with God’s grace Mary Ann will never set her brushes down again.
