Bite Size

Carol Smaglinski
Mahshid Aguilar is enthusiastic, that’s for sure. She owns Let’s Do Greek, 180 W. 15th in Edmond, and said the “response has been phenomenal.” Aguilar’s family is her husband, Gleen, and their two children, Ayeh, 19, and Afsheen, 10.

No ‘conflict’


Letters to the Editor

Leslie V. Batchelor
Disclosure of personal conflicts of interest of Urban Renewal Commissioners is governed by Title 11, Section 38-118 of the Oklahoma Statutes. That statute categorically prohibits the voluntary acquisition of any personal interest, direct or indirect, in an urban renewal project. Certain other potential conflicts must be disclosed to the Urban Renewal Authority and the municipal governing body.

Contrary to the statement in the article, state law does not require the Urban Renewal Authority to file conflict of interest forms with the secretary of state’s office. Nor does the law require the filing of any form when there is no conflict of interest.

Shaping a better city


Commentary

Blair Humphreys
We had the opportunity to discuss the issue of “sprawl” with more than 600 citizens who gathered last month at a town hall meeting in Oklahoma City. The meeting included presentations from Councilman Ed Shadid, City Manager Jim Couch and the director of almost every city department.

Bigfoot

Toes the line of Syfy stupidity.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
At least Bigfoot does not waste viewers’ time in showing them Bigfoot. They have to wait one minute, tops, so if that’s all you ask of this Asylum release that premiered recently on Syfy, you’re golden.

The Barrens

Something in Jersey is more demonic than Snooki.


Horror

Rod Lott
In a post-Saw world, Darren Lynn Bousman quietly has been making a series of horror films more in line with scary movies of the 1970s than the torture-porn genre he helped usher in. Already this year, DVD has brought us his superlative Mother's Day remake and the low-key demonic pic 11-11-11, and now The Barrens. It's just too bad they've all been denied wide theatrical releases.

Young at heart


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma City is no longer known merely as the capital of the state north of Texas. Between the skyrocketing success of the Thunder and periodic national attention paid to Mayor Mick Cornett, OKC is garnering the right kind of publicity.
