Weighty achievement

From fattest to fittest, OKC is a million pounds lighter, thanks in part to one man’s shedding of 200 of them.


Jenn Scott

When Oklahoma City landed on just about every “fattest” list imaginable, Mayor Mick Cornett did not sit idly by. He launched a million-pound challenge in 2007. Since then, the mayor has lost 38 pounds himself.

Great times for OKC

Letters to the Editor

Sandy Meyers
To live in Oklahoma City today is exciting. The approval by the Oklahoma City Council to restructure Centennial Plaza or Civic Center park is a great gift to all of us. Making this prominent property a spectacular centerpiece for the arts and civic affairs gives us all a feeling of pride and excitement.

Takeover trouble

The city’s request for operators of the MAPS 3 senior wellness centers has generated little interest.


Clifton Adcock
Although the Oklahoma City Council has approved plans laying out two MAPS 3 projects, council members expressed concern that one of the projects has drawn little interest from operators that eventually will be needed.

Thunder has transformed city’s image


Mick Cornett
I was watching ESPN the other night and saw Skip Bayless, Tim Legler and Stephen A. Smith spend 20 minutes talking about the Oklahoma City Thunder. A few days earlier, I’d seen the ESPN First Take team analyzing Russell Westbrook’s game.

Still a sportscaster

Letters to the Editor

Jim Henry
Mick Cornett’s commentary of May 16 (“Thunder has transformed city’s image,” Oklahoma Gazette) proved that I was right when Oklahoma City chose Mick Cornett over Jim Tolbert: If you elect a sportscaster as mayor, you get a sportscaster as mayor.

Mick NYC


Gazette staff
Mayor Mick Cornett loves Oklahoma City, of course, but that doesn’t mean hizzoner doesn’t occasionally indulge himself a New York state of mind.

Young at heart


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.

If I were Santa ....

Notable Oklahomans tell us what they would do.


Gazette staff
There must be a lot of perks to being Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick. You have scores of elves to do your bidding. Families across the globe lavish you with milk and cookies. With a magical sleigh, you never have to fly Southwest.

Congrats, Mr. Mayor!


Gazette staff
Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett will need to clear some room on a bookshelf for an award celebrating something that hasn’t happened yet, sorta.
