Mustang’s Bible-based curriculum hits snag


CFN

Gazette staff
Believers in the Bible, like Hobby Lobby president Steve Green, view it as a book that, when uncovered from the shadows and given full attention, offers truth and guidance that everyone needs to hear.

Thanks, Obama! No, really.

Gazette staff
If anything could bring Republicans and Democrats together, the deadly tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma last year would be a pretty good candidate.

Taking the plunge


CFN

Gazette staff
It turns out not everyone is interested in being saved by the baby Jesus before the world explodes and is overtaken by the evils of Lucifer. You’re surprised, aren’t you? No? Well, you could at least act surprised, you know.

OKG7 things to do

One-Man Star Wars Trilogy


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you were to attempt to condense all three original Star Wars films into a single hour — oh, and perform the role of every character by yourself — you’d probably need something greater than the Force to do it. Charles Ross isn’t a jedi (we don’t think), but he still manages to do all of these things in his One-Man Star Wars Trilogy, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday–Friday and 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday–Sunday at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Tickets are $30-$35. Call 297-2264 or visit cityrep.com.

The Dirty 30


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Let’s be real: running can be kinda boring. Unless you’re running through a muddy obstacle course like the one in The Dirty 30, the filthiest (and most entertaining) 5k challenge Oklahoma has to offer. The craziness begins at 9 a.m. and runs (literally) into the early afternoon at Canyon Creek Ranch, 3905 E. County Rd. 66, in Mulhall, just north of Guthrie. Admission is free for observers, and registration is $35 for kids and $75 for adults. Visit dirty30race.com.

Oklahoma City Pro-Am Classic


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Are you an extreme biker? We’re not talking motorcycles here — you know, the kind that require peddling and endurance. Then check out the Third Annual Oklahoma City Pro-Am Classic, a three-day, short-course bicycle race across Oklahoma City, beginning Friday evening through Sunday. (Not continuously. That would be extremely difficult.) Registration is $40-$45. Visit okcpac.com.

Photo Slam


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you think the words “photo” and “slam” sound awesome together, that’s because they do. This nontraditional artist lecture will feature 12 Oklahoma photographers who have five minutes to explain their techniques. But they can’t go over the alotted time; otherwise, they get the gong. The event begins at 7 p.m. Thursday at Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Noble Theater, 415 Couch Drive. Admission is free. Call 236-3100 or visit okcmoa.com.

Class acts


CFN

Gazette staff
Remember when Oklahoma City didn’t have an NBA team? Well those dark ages are gone. OKC not only has a team but it’s also really good, and the fans reward the team accordingly with their support.
