OPA President Jeff Shultz made newspaper heroes his theme this year. After all, he hails from Pauls Valley, home to Oklahoma's great toy and action figure museum. So we call on all newspaper heroes (that means you!) to join us at the 2013 OPA Annual Convention, June 13-15, at the Reed Center and Sheraton in Midwest City.
