    Great State: Cashion Artist Uses Wood Pallets as Her Pallete

    CASHION, OKLAHOMA — Packing pallets are usually made of rough, scrap wood. Handle one for long and you might end up with a splinter for your trouble, but they do hold things. “I like to see something that starts as a foundation,” says artist Charity Williams. Williams’ father was a brick mason so there were always lots of them lying around her house with heavy things on them. It’s only been in the past year that, out of necessity, she […]

However, Westbrook picked up his 16th technical foul of the season in the 4th quarter. That means he faces a one […]
