Incumbent Pat Ryan, facing an opponent with Sooner Tea Party backing, says Tuesday’s election will be a referendum for the city’s future.
News Clifton Adcock
Tuesday’s Oklahoma City Council race is likely to be decided without a
runoff. Ward 8 encompasses the far northern and northwestern part of the
city, pitting incumbent Pat Ryan against challenger Cliff Hearron.

Obviously, Keith Kelley (Letters, “‘Gunhating zealots’ are perpetuating backward thought,” Feb. 9, Oklahoma Gazette) and Bryan Scott (“Who’s paranoid?,” Feb. 2) think it is illegal for Oklahomans to leave the state, and they are oblivious to the fact that Oklahoma law does not cover the entire United States.

Since reading the Gazette’s Feb. 9 Commentaries (Jason Reese,
“Legislate morality,” Kurt Hochenauer, “Separation anxiety”) about new
bills introduced in the Oklahoma Legislature that would permit some
religious teaching in our public schools that concern creationism verses
evolution, I have been struggling with some feelings.
Cheer on your favorite NBA team (that’d be the Thunder) at these metro spots.

To say that the arrival more than two years ago of the Thunder to
Oklahoma City has changed the city’s landscape is an understatement
somewhat akin to saying the Broadway Extension may experience a slight
slowing of traffic around the evening rush hour.
Commentary Jason Reese
Over the past few weeks, we have seen unrest spread throughout the Midwest. From Ohio to Wisconsin, public employees are taking to the street to protest much-delayed belt-tightening in those cash-strapped states. As we watch these events unfold, one cannot help but wonder if the Sooner State could experience the same.

More than 40,000 Oklahoma City residents did not have to worry about snowcovered roads impacting their drive to work after the recent snowstorms. That is because more than 40,000 Oklahoma City residents live in households without access to a single car.

One needn’t be the sharpest tooth in the hound to imagine why you, Sen.
Josh Brecheen, would advocate repeal of SB 1712. I suspect one only need
follow the money trail. I’d be willing to bet you have a friend or two
with “puppy mill-itis.”
