50 Mile Antique and Vintage Market October 22 -24.

Highway 20 Junk & Drive to bring visitors from around the state

Collinsville, Oklahoma- Plans are being finalized for the for the first annual Highway 20 Junk & Drive organized by Collinsville Downtown, Inc. The event is being touted as “A 50 mile Antique and Vintage Market,” and will take place on October 22 -24. The idea originated when local antique shop owners came together looking for a way to promote Collinsville and introduce antique and “junk” seekers to the many antique and collectible dealers located on Main Street in downtown Collinsville. The group approached Collinsville Downtown, Inc. the local Main Street Program and asked for help in organizing the event. It was decided that in order to make the event more significant they would reach out to the nearby Main Street communities of Pryor, Claremore, and the Main Street Association of Skiatook.

The event will take place and extend along Highway 20 through Pryor, Claremore, Collinsville, and Skiatook. Local merchants in all of the communities have jumped on board and will be offering shoppers a wide array of antique and vintage merchandise. Vendor booths are also available for only $25 in each town for those who would like to be a part and sell their wares without having a storefront. The event is being fashioned after the popular long distance garage sale shopping events, which have shoppers driving miles along a designated route to find one of kind treasures.

“We’ve never been a part of anything of this caliber, “ commented C.D.I. President, Sherry Campbell. “We’re flattered that they came to us to organize and oversee the event. We’re looking forward to showing off our incredible Main Street and inviting visitors to explore the other nearby Main Street Communities. It’s exciting to able to offer our assistance in a way our program was designed to do.”

A printed Shopper’s Event Guide will be available for would be “pickers” to make the most of their experience. Maps of every town will be included, showcasing participating shops, boutiques and restaurants. Additional vendor areas will also be outlined on the maps in each area.

Commissioner Doak Urges Oklahomans to Consider Impact-Resistant Shingles

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak is encouraging homeowners to consider purchasing impact-resistant shingles. The investment could lead to savings on their home insurance premium.

“With the severe weather we experience here in Oklahoma, roofs take a beating,” said Doak. “Studies have shown that many impact-resistant shingles can withstand a storm with golf-ball sized hail and 130 mph winds. They offer better protection from wind and hail, reducing the chance you’ll have to file an insurance claim to get a new roof. Overall, it’s a great investment.”

The discounts vary depending on the class of roofing material. The Underwriters’ Laboratory rates roofing materials from Class 1 to Class 4. A Class 4 shingle generally receives the highest premium credit. Typically, Class 4 roofing materials for a house cost $1,800 to $2,500 more than lower-rated shingles.

Check with your insurance company before replacing your roof to see what discounts they offer and the specific type of roofing material required to qualify for the discount.

One maker of impact-resistant shingles in Oklahoma is Malarkey Roofing Products. Commissioner Doak toured the facility earlier this week.

“Our plant in Oklahoma City is equipped with a state-of-the-art polymer modified asphalt blending system we use to manufacture our impact-resistant shingles,” said Gregory B. Malarkey, Senior Vice President of Malarkey Roofing Products. “We are proud that we can bring this technology to Oklahoma’s citizens to help them contain the costs associated with roof replacement due to inclement weather events. We appreciate Commissioner Doak’s interest in our advanced technology and for taking the time to tour our Oklahoma City manufacturing facility.”
