Ward 8

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.

You better vote Tuesday!

The quality of our city government is in peril.


Commentary

Bill Bleakley
Oklahoma City’s incredible record of accomplishments during the past decade could be jeopardized by the outcome of the Oklahoma City Council election on Tuesday.

Weapon of mass discussion


Letters to the Editor

Karen Webb
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.

Monkeys and Bibles


Letters to the Editor

Merle D. Wright
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.

Thoughts on ‘boombastic’ Thunder trades

A step or two in the right direction.


Sports

Patrick
Well, the NBA trade deadline has come and gone. And in case you were unaware, it was as crazy and unpredictable as a Sally Kern manifesto on homosexuals and terrorism.

Thunder up!

Cheer on your favorite NBA team (that’d be the Thunder) at these metro spots.


Food and Drink Features

Nathan Gunter
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.

Can it happen here?

Oklahoma could be poised for a fight over unions.


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.

Streetcar for the car-free

40,000 people in OKC have no access to a car.


Commentary

Blair Humphreys
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.

A bone to pick with Sen. Josh Brecheen


Letters to the Editor

Amy Briceno
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.”
