Dominic Bell of Millennium Roofing & Construction was the featured speaker at a recent meeting of the Kingfisher Lions Club. A Dover native, Bell gave Lions a brief history of Millennium, which was started by another Dover native, Jeremy Lack, in 2008 in Norman. Lack eventually moved his operation to Kingfisher. Bell joined the company three years ago. “I didn’t know what I was getting into,” he said. “I learned on the fly, I’ve learned a lot and it’s been a great experience.” Bell is a sales manager for the company and told Lions about the process of working with customers and insurance companies during events like hail storms last year. He said the company has replaced about 500 roofs in Kingfisher from that storm alone. However, he said they don’t want to do the work if it doesn’t need to be done. “If there’s enough damage to file a claim, we’ll let you know,” he said. “But we don’t want to tell you to file one if you don’t have to. Our main goal is to take care of the customer.” Bell, left, was joined at the meeting with fellow Millennium employee Dustin Neal, who also took time to answer several questions from Lions Club members.

We hear a lot about our carbon footprint but so far no one has come up with a formula or algorithm to calculate it. It’s not as easy as just buying a pair of Birkenstocks and trading in your Cadillac for a Smart Car.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas personally declined a request from presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for Secret Service protection last July.
