Machine Head

What’s missing? A reason to care.  Marlboro-throated Rachel (Sharon Hinnendael, star of the recent Embrace of the Vampire remake) and her fellow spoiled-brat friends spend spring break at a totally sweet Cali-desert house owned by some rich dude her dad knows. The girls lose their enthusiasm over a week of endless drinking and dicking when

Escape Plan

The world of 2013, however, is a mighty different landscape; Escape Plan bombed. That’s too bad, because it’s pretty good for what it sets out to be: a big, dumb action movie, in the style of its stars’ big, dumb bread-and-butter recipe of yesteryear.  Stallone’s Breslin works as a security expert hired to go undercover

The greenest senator?

The letter, addressed to Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, states, “I am giving you substantial advance notice with the hope that you will be able to schedule a special election concurrent with the existing election schedule and not impose any undue burden on Oklahoma taxpayers.” Coburn’s thriftiness comes as no surprise to Oklahoma voters. For the

LETTERS

The 2004 vote on this issue confirmed Oklahomans’ view that a marriage should be between a man and a woman, but as much as we struggle with the idea of a gay couple being married, we must come to the realization that gay marriage will be legal in all states, maybe quicker than we think.

Still not a Belieber, er, believer

Our good senator is perhaps a bit of a conspiracy nut when it comes to this issue. It’s no secret he believes climate change is fictional, contrived by mad scientists at the United Nations. So, winter is a prime time for Inhofe to spout off about clandestine operations and the alleged Evil Empire. His proof?

Lankford says he wants Coburn’s Senate seat

“After a great deal of thought, prayer and discussion with my family, I feel led to continue my Oklahoma common sense and principled approach to attack the deep problems in the United States Senate,” he said during a press conference Thursday at the Oklahoma History Center. Coburn (R-Oklahoma) has held the Senate seat since 2004,

Getting high(er)

A 2 percent raise was approved for Couch and most other city workers during the Dec. 31 council meeting. All new salaries took effect Jan. 1. Couch, Municipal Counselor Ken Jordan and City Auditor Jim Williamson were considered for raises separate from other city employees because they are hired directly by the council. As the

LETTERS

“I know that this will be deleted as soon as it is read, but, speaking as one of the millions ignored by overpriced insurance, I feel I must inform you that I now have insurance for the first time in over a decade. While it is true that the roll-out has been rocky, to say

Back to the future

Fallin offends everyone,straight and gayOklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin put the state in the national spotlight in 2013, but not in a positive way. Fallin, in her infinite wisdom, decided unilaterally that a federal mandate directing spousal benefits to same-sex couples in the military would not take place in Oklahoma. As a result, Fallin pulled spousal

Five-oh

During the last five decades, Howell, now 79, has accepted almost every type of legal case imaginable, but now his practice focuses on injury law. When he talked about possibly ending his long, illustrious career, the attorney and former state legislator joked, “Old lawyers don’t retire; they just lose their appeal.” That’s not the case
