Those loony folks at Westboro Baptist Church don’t know when to shut up. Last month, it was Oklahoma City-slash- Northwest Classen grad-slash-country star Vince Gill they were harassing. Now, they’ve gotten under Sooner country star Blake Shelton’s skin.

Home cookin’

Krystal Keith is inspired by many things — including her distinguished father — but none more than her hometown.
