SORT BY Relevancy
We stopped In Tombstone Arizona on the way back from Los Cruces New Mexico. My wife and I had both finished reading a couple of books about Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, and the OK Corral.
So we decided to make the detour and go see it
First the Bad News, while the parking is free, any attraction you might want to see charges admission
The Ghost town part of town reminded me to much “Knott’s Berry Farm” and or Calico. I would have preferred a deserted set of buildings and a walking tour
Again I sort of figured it was a tourist place so was not expecting too much
The road in / out of town is heavily patrolled so watch your speed
The Good News
We ate at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon” the food was quite good , the service was great , the entertainment was pretty good, and was a neat place to eat and let one’s imagination take over and be there with Doc Holiday, and the others.
My wife and split a brisket Sandwich and a bowl of chili and each had a “Doc Holiday “to drink (Mr. Pub) but hey indulge me
They had a gentleman doing some street dancing for tips that while not western was rather interesting to watch
A lot of the residents are dressed in period clothing which gives the place that western look.
My wife bought some earrings at a Native American store as souvenirs.
Tombstone is a neat place to stop and visit , check off the bucket list, eat at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon” and enjoy a couple of hours to break up that LONG I -10 drive BUT I do not foresee it has my favorite destination site yet
Wyatt Earp, The Clanton Brothers, Doc Holiday, The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Tombstone, Arizona and the U.S. Marshals Service are woven into the mythology of the American Wild West. Wednesday, June 11, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is taking a look inside America’s most storied law enforcement agency with a descendent of Marshall Wyatt Earp, Mike Earp. And we’ll be traveling to Tombstone, Arizona, site of the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral to talk with some of the current residents of Tombstone talking to men who are keeping the legends of the wild, wild west alive, including Terry “Ike” Clanton, descendant of the Clantons, Kenn Barrett, the former City Marshal and Chief of Police, and Stephen Keith, known all over town as Doc Holliday.
In his new book U.S. Marshals, Mike Earp, who retired as the third-highest-ranking official in the service, tells the thrilling inside story of today’s U.S. marshals -- America’s oldest law enforcement agency, established in 1789 by George Washington. Giving a detailed account of its colorful history, Earp brings the past to the present in a revealing account of what few people realize is a three decades transformation of the entire structure of law enforcement in America.
Tombstone, Arizona is a historic western city in Cochise County, Arizona, founded in 1879 by Ed Schieffelin in what was then Pima County, Arizona Territory. It was one of the last wide-open frontier boomtowns in the American Old West and the site of the famous Gunfight at the OK Corral fought October 26, 1881 between the outlaw cowboys Billy Claiborne, Ike and Billy Clanton, and Tom and Frank McLaury, and the opposing town Marshal Virgil Earp and his brothers Assistant Town Marshal Morgan and temporary lawman Wyatt, aided by Doc Holliday designated as a temporary marshal by Virgil. Twenty four seconds and 30 shots later, Billy Clanton, Tom and Frank McLaury were mortally wounded.

Of all the names and numbers reported in the May issue of Christian Standard, we'll introduce you to three of them in this helpful episode:
Brian Kruckenberg, lead pastor with New City Church in Phoenix, Arizona will talk about his congregation's remarkable growth, 61.5% in 2014!
The second fastest-growing church reporting to us was Lifepointe Church in Raleigh, NC at 36.2 percent. Donnie Williams, Lifepointe's lead pastor, will join our panel.
Our third guest is Bo Chancey, senior pastor with Manchester (NH) Christian Church. This congregation achieved the highest baptism ratio, 17.7 percent. That means for every 100 people in the congregation's 2014 average, the church baptized almost 18 people.
We want to know how these congregations achieved this kind of outreach. Please listen for ideas and be ready to ask your questions of these dynamic church leaders.
