Teams compete against each other for months on end to prove that they are the smartest, the most enduring and have what it takes to beat out the competition. No, we're not talking about the latest Survivor series. This is a real-life competi- tion - with real food - served real fast. And the local Sonic Drive-In is proving it has what it takes to survive. The Sonic located at 1202 N. Main St. continues to survive in the 2001 Dr. Pepper Sonic Games. The Games started in March with more than 1,800 Sonic Drive-Ins across the na- tion participating. The compe- tition has been narrowed down to the top third in each region and only 600 Sonic Drive-Ins remain in the Games. Each drive-in is judged on several factors throughout the compe- tition, but one very important aspect of the judging stems from "mystery shop" scores. "If a Sonic Drive-In has ad- vanced this far in the Games, it shows that the crew members are motivated and take pride in their work," said Ken Keymer, President and chief operating officer of Sonic Corp. "From here, the competition heats up as the top 10 Sonics in the na- tion are selected to compete at the National Competition in Las Vegas September." Drive-Ins that have accumu- lated the highest overall scores are flown to the National Finals to compete for more than $5,000 in cash prizes, the chance to be named National Champions and to be recog- nized on stage at Sonic's Na- tional Convention in San Diego. !llCrest Medical Group A Service ofHillcrest HealthCare System Proudly Welcomes Dr. Randy J. arellner Our Family of Physicians maintains his active privileges at Cushing while joining Eastern Oklahoma's of quality, primary care physicians.

Photo provided students Experience the rewards of hosting an exchange student eager to live daily life in America. These students are participants in the Freedom Support Act/FLEX scholarship program, conceived by former Senator Bill Bradley and initi- ated in 1993 by Congress for students from the former Soviet Union. Goals for the program are to enable students to: (1) gain an understanding of impor- tant elements of a civil society; (2) acquire the values and skills that will enable them to serve as agents for the transformation of their home countries; (3) in- teract with Americans and form lasting ties; (4) develop an ap- preciation for the American cul- ture; and (5) teach Americans about the cultures of their home countries. These carefully screened stu- dents are selected from a wide cross-section of students from the 12 countries that make up the former Soviet Union. Each student's English ability is ex- cellent & the scholastic achieve- ments are above average. Students will arrive for the 2001-02 school year. They are sponsored by World Heritage Student Exchange, a non-profit, public benefit organization. Stu- dents are fully insured and re- ceive a monthly allowance for personal expenses. Couples, single parents, and families with or without children at home are all encouraged to apply.
