Oil Boom Boys

Photographs & Text By: Chris Rusanowsky

North Dakota has become the center of conversation for a more energy-efficient move for the United States. With the discovery of oil in "The Bakken Shale" and hydraulic fracing, people from all over the country migrated to the rural towns of North Dakota. The rumors are almost hard to believe that you could make six figures as a roughneck attracted most of the new occupants. Most of the oil field workers were male and would find themselves living in overpriced "man camps" provided by oil companies. The struggles of depression, fatigue, and below-zero weather would make or break these men's charter.

Growing with Tradition

Weatherford became a focus of many during 2020 when the protest broke out across America when a Minialpolus Police Officer murdered George Floyd. People started to ask questions about racism in America, and police brutality would be asked about on every media platform. Confederate Monuments would also stand in the crosshairs of the protests. Weatherford has a confederate soldier statue sitting on the county courthouse lawn. In July 2020, a large demonstration occurred with people from Weatherford and people from outside cities like Dallas.

Dallas Riots

On May 29, 2020, Dallas erupted in mass protests, as did many large cities around the country. A video went viral of a man named George Floyd being killed in public by Minneapolis Police. Dallas was one of the cities that faced days of protest and riots on city streets. Dallas Police used tear gas, rubber bullets, and pepper balls to control and disperse the crowds. In Dallas, the protest began peacefully without violence; men and women of all colors marched the streets chanting “No Justice, No Peace” and “Black Lives Matter.”

Beheading the Serpent

Photos & Text By Chris Rusanowsky

The Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup was created to control the growing number of rattlesnakes that call home to farmlands, pasters, and cattle ranches. Every year rattlesnake hunters bring in thousands of snakes that will be killed, skinned, and sold on the market. Visitors will witness the bloody acts that Jaycees’ members performed to educate and show off these animals’ killings. While some of its curl and the snakes feel this pain minutes after being killed, others look at it as an old tradition passed on for sixty-two years.
