Kactus Productions
My husband, Dick Randall and I started off as Kactus Kountry Productions in 1979 in Las Vegas with Dick as  Pres, Terry Bethel as V.P. and myself as  Sec/Treas..
After 2 years Terry went back to Nashville and Dick and I headed to TX then AR and LA. In '83 we ended up back in Vegas. When a neighbor tried to shoot Dick
in the face we decided it was time to leave Vegas so we moved to Dolan Springs, AZ.  After coaching
from some clubs we decided to get back in the business but
used the name  Kactus Productions for a fresh start. In '86 we moved to Kingman, AZ wnere I went to work for the  Mohave County Fairgrounds and made even
more connections!


On April 8th Terry Bethel will be undergoing back surgery for a bulging disk and possible repair of a fusion of the L4-L5 vertebrae done years ago. The doctor won't know exactly what needs to be done until he gets started....planning for the worse and praying for the best. We are praying this helps with the leg and foot pain as well..I ask that you all pray for a successful surgery, fast recovery, and a complete healing....Thanks so much for your prayers and I will keep you posted as much as I can....God bless
Terry wanted me to tell you all THANK YOU for all your thoughts prayers and kind words as he prepares for his back surgery. He appreciates all the love and concern you've shown him. He is having blood drawn and pre-registering this afternoon. Then after spending the night with a friend in Springfield, he will be admitted at 6am tomorrow and is scheduled to be the 1st patient. If all goes well, they said he would only be in the hospital for 3 to 4 days. After that he will spend a few weeks at home recuperating. Please continue to pray for a successful surgery and speedy recovery. I (MJ) will keep you updated as I receive information on the surgery & recovery...:) Again THANK YOU & GOD BLESS,
Terry and MJ
