Before we get to this week’s blog, let me give you a little insight into how the Tell Someone I Love You Today blog happens. Many professional and fancy blogophiles have a centered audience and theme. As you’ve probably noticed by now, I don’t. One week is about ranching and the next is about living in an Ice Palace. That’s because I let my kids help me decide what to write about each week. They are part of #thecircus, they might as well have a chance to take part in it. So we usually sit down on Sunday afternoon to decide what to write about. They throw out ideas, we talk about them, laugh at many and then I go to work. I hit the keyboard, spit out a rough draft on Sunday and then sit on it. I try to freshen it up by Tuesday. Erica goes to work to do...
The first-ever Giving Week at Rogers State University exceeded expectations in not only the amount of money raised for scholarships and programs, but in the widespread participation of donors. Giving Week, sponsored by the Rogers State University Foundation, coincided with Homecoming and sought to raise $20,000 to celebrate RSU’s 20th anniversary of becoming an accredited four-year university. “By every measure, Giving Week was a success,” Steve Valencia, vice-president for development, said. “The support shown by our faculty and staff, alumni and friends, was incredible. Our commitment to ‘Students First’ was clearly proven during the week.” Gifts during Giving Week totaled $22,644, surpassing the original goal by 13 percent. The total includes a $10,000 matching gift provided by an anonymous donor. Ninety-three donors provided gifts during the week, including 42 who made their first-ever gift to RSU. RSU employees also made a significant impact during the week with 58 employees giving back, including five employees...

Rogers State saw pitcher Andrea Morales reach a career milestone in game one's 9-3 victory, before Hillman tossed the perfect game against the Pioneers (3-9), who defeated defending national champion and No. 1 Augustana earlier this season. The Hillcats picked up a 12-0 win in the second game.

Danelle Day would start off the inning with a double to left center, followed by a single from Jaylan...
