Time to get to work. LETA has announced the return of the "Yard of the Month" contest!

Close up of a lawn sprinkler

I know of several deserving people for this award whose lawns and landscaping are beyond incredible, they're immaculate. Now that Spring is officially here and we're starting to see warmer temperatures outdoors it's time to get back in the yard and get things looking good. You could win "Yard of the Month!"


I spent most of the weekend in the yard mowing, weed eating, and raking up what little leaves I had left in the yard from Winter. I enjoy taking care of the lawn and landscaping, I'm not that good at it, but it's relaxing and the end result is something you can be proud of. I'm a long way away from winning "Yard of the Month."

Nominate your neighbors, family, and friends for the "Yard of the Month" contest!

25 hilarious Oklahoma personalized tags DENIED by the DMV

A great way to personalize your vehicle is with a custom license plate. There are some pretty creative and funny tags running around the Sooner State. Some are easy to get, others will have you scratching your head trying to figure it out what it says. Personalized plates are very popular and we're seeing more of them on the road every day. However, there are some rules and restrictions when it comes to what you can and can't put on your plate. If it's considered obscene, vulgar, demeaning, or includes any mention of drugs, alcohol, or illegal activities it will be DENIED. Check out the photo gallery below of some of the most hilarious tags that were rejected by the Oklahoma Department of Motor Vehicles. WARNING: some of these could be considered offensive so if you're easily offended proceed with caution. You have been officially warned.
