CFN

Gazette staff

Rest easy, however; he’s still very, very, very rich — just not in the billionaire stratosphere. At least that’s according to the latest Forbes list of human beings with the most moolah in the entire universe.

Ridicu-laws

CFN

Gazette staff

CFN

Gazette staff
Science homework might be a little easier for Oklahoma students in the near future, depending on how you look at it. House Bill 1674 by Rep. Gus Blackwell, R-Laverne, would allow students to turn in schoolwork that challenges “controversial topics” such as “biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming and human cloning” without adverse consequences, such as a pesky bad grade. It also will force teachers to come up with more creative ways of handling such subjects.
