It is only the third time in league history that a team has received the prestigious award in consecutive years.
“It is a tremendous honor for the Drillers organization to again be recognized as Texas League Organization of the Year,” said General Manager Mike Melega. “To be honored like this takes a full team effort from our amazing fans, a great city and a tremendous front office staff, and we are blessed with all three.”
In an exclusive report by Breitbart Texas, it appears that Battleground Texas (BGTX) may have failed to take any action regarding the “admission” of an undercover volunteer with BGTX that she had broken multiple election laws, according to a new video investigation by journalist James O’Keefe’s organization Project Veritas.
The allegations come on the heels of sting earlier this year that busted BGTX, a group attempting to turn Texas blue, for illegally copying voters’ personal data for campaign purposes.

TULSA, OK— It was a classic setup on Saturday night in H.A. Chapman Stadium. The TU Golden Hurricane, who had trailed the entire game against the Texas State University Bobcats, were in the red zone with just seconds remaining when quarterback Dane Evans called his own number and crashed through the Bobcat defensive line on a one-yard keeper to tie the game.
The TU offense had effectively erased a 14-point deficit and forced their second overtime of the 2014 season, the other coming on opening night against Tulane. Unfortunately, after the teams knotted the score not once but twice in two overtime rounds, head coach Bill Blankenship’s young team fell short of a second overtime miracle and lost 37-34.

Alton Alexander Nolen, 30 yr. old ex-convict, police say, was taking vengeance. Most troubling is Nolen’s public conversion and passion for radical Islam. Nolen was fired, in part, for arguing on the job that stoning “wayward” women was proper in a civil, moral, modern society. In the latest update, Nolen’s mother apologized to the families of the two victims by video posted on Facebook.
It may be the best entertainment deal in or around the Brady District’s First Friday Art Crawl in October. Not only will the German-American Society of Tulsa’s Blaskapelle band be playing a free concert inside the Jazz Depot, but there’ll also be a dance instructor on hand to give lessons beginning an hour before the show – also at no cost whatsoever.
“For this gig, we’ve hired an instructor, and between six and seven she’ll be happy to teach couples to polka and waltz,” says Larry King, Blaskapelle’s manager and a trombonist in the band. “We’ve done that two or three times at the GAST [German-American Society of Tulsa] Center, and it’s been very successful. People really like it.
