This is a major loss for Stroud Oklahoma, but it is a major gain for Paris Texas. May God bless and keep Steve and his family as they face new challenges. My hope and prayer is that people will be kinder to him in Paris Texas then they were in his "home town."

People may have seemed unkind to Steve in Stoud, but in fact they were unhappy because he had been taken in by Florida scam artists with a private jet who descended on Stroud in their $5,000 suits, used Barry Switzer as a prop, and nearly visited a en economic and public safety disaster on the city.

I think he finally got the picture, but there were hard feelings during the time the GEO Group was still trying to exploit the town and endanger its residents.

I too, wish him well in Paris.
