Klein Ave. Tickets are $25-$50. Visit ticketstorm.com.

Bridging the gap


CFN

Gazette staff
One of our state’s most conservative voices (heck, one of the nation’s) has softened his tone. Sen. Jim Inhofe said recently his “attitude” toward his across-the-aisle Senate peers changed as a result of sympathy he received after the death of his son, Perry Inhofe, 52, who died in a plane crash in November.
