Gazette staff
This list isn’t one that anybody wants to be on. This isn’t Billboard’s Top Singles Chart. Oh no. Yahoo News reports that, even when the rest of the nation gets a C- grade for our education, Oklahoma tops even that.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation scored a spot at No. 51 on Fortune magazine’s list of 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2014. Although that may sound impressive, Chesapeake once made it all the way up to No. 18 in 2012 and was still hanging in there at No. 26 last year.

It’s about gun rights for everyone


CFN

Gazette staff
Representative Sally Kern is just thinking of the children, especially the right for them to bear, well, things in the shape of arms. In a funny little piece of legislature proposed by her, it would make it illegal for teachers to punish children for having weapons on their minds and indulging in playtime activities such as drawing a gun, using fingers or hands in the shape of a gun or making gun noises.

Park it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Some plays shy away from hard-hitting issues. Clybourne Park is not one of those plays. The R-rated comedic production tackles topics like race and gentrification, and it won a bunch of awards as a result (a Tony and a Pulitzer, no less). See the University Theatre production 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5 in the Weitzenhoffer Theatre, 563 Elm Ave. in Norman. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students. Call 325- 4101 or visit ou.edu/finearts.
