‘Education as a common good’


Commentary

Jason Reese
The good news: I smile every time I drive past the charter school near my house on the way to drop off my eldest child at our parochial school. The bad news: Not everyone in our state, or even our city, has the ability to choose either of those options. That is why I want to insist that our state and local governments move further and faster in expanding school choice.

Don't discriminate


Letters to the Editor

Hope Thomas
The Marriage Equality Rights for Oklahoma movement was launched to give hope and accomplish civil equality rights to the many people in this state oppressed by being discriminated against for sexual orientation. It is a movement to bring awareness on gay discrimination to all communities and also say it’s never too early or late to make a change.

Darla with a Z

Oklahoma crooner carries the torch for a live TV special.

Oklahoma City’s own female Frank Sinatra, Darla Zuhdi, is preparing for a huge television special, “Darla Z Live from Las Vegas.”

To be shot at her 4 p.m. performance Sept. 22 at South Point Casino in Las Vegas, the special will air multiple times on the syndicated AMGTV network, Dish Online and other national and international broadcast outlets. All told, at least more than 54.2 million viewers will have a shot at seeing the 405’s Wayne Newton-approved crooner in action. Despite the “Live” in the title, it won’t begin airing until November.

Zuhdi started her singing career in 2005, opening for none other than Willie Nelson. Her latest CD is “Live in Concert,” recorded with Bob Rozario, her musical director and conductor. A famed jazz pianist in his own right, Rozario’s previous clients include Dick Clark, Bobby Darin  and Tony Orlando.
