Competent criminals


CFN

Gazette staff
We all do it: make a last-minute mental checklist to remember our keys and wallet and — oh — our gun. That’s something April Giddens-King forgot to do as she fled the Oklahoma City home she was attempting to break into.

CFN

Gazette staff
Are you guys ready for some basketball news or what? Yeah, we know it has been an excruciatingly slow offseason. But things got hot and heavy in a hurry ... if you follow Justin Bieber on Instagram.

Fundamental flashback

John Fullbright


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Some musicians are just better enjoyed while outdoors, chillin’ on a blanket and drinking a cold beverage. John Fullbright is one of those musicians. The Bearden-based singer-songwriter’s latest album, aptly titled Songs, is chock-full of earthy, intimate folk numbers, which ought to translate just fine to the Great Lawn. See Fullbright — along with food trucks and ice-cold Coop beer — 8 p.m. Friday at Myriad Botanical Gardens, 301 W. Reno Ave. Admission is free. Call 445-7080 or visit myriadgardens.org.

CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahomans are a proud bunch, and we’re especially proud of the progress we have made in the last few years. We have an NBA team and a fancy new skyscraper in downtown OKC, and food trucks are sprouting up like weeds — portable, delicious weeds.
