Bomb threat

A collaborative local effort produces technology to thwart suicide bombers.

On the conference room table sat what resembled a large, black camcorder from the early ’90s, but the yellow warning label on it —  Caution: Radiation — betrayed the item’s benign appearance.

Bomb it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Celebrating the Christmas season and the end of the world (so say those silly Mayans) is Navidad Espectacular!, an outstandingly outlandish art exhibit at Bomb Shelter, 1609 N. Blackwelder. With an opening reception from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday, it runs through Dec. 31 ... er, unless those pesky Mayans prove correct, in which case, Dec. 21. Admission is free. Call 628-2689.

FBI Code 98

It's about a bomb, but isn't one.


Rod Lott
Despite how Warner Archive has branded it, 1963’s FBI Code 98 is not — repeat: not — film noir. All film noir is crime, but not all crime is film noir. That vaulted subgenre requires darkness, whereas this feature is so light and breezy, it’s practically a recruiting tool for the federal agency. It even has its own marching music.

Bat it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Not to scare you or anything, but did you know there are 22 species of bats in Oklahoma? It’s OK; they usually leave us each winter, though some were kind enough to stop by Chiroptera, a spooky, Mesoamerican-inspired installation featuring the furry flying rodents. Flap your way into its opening reception from 7-10 p.m. Friday at Bomb Shelter, 1609 N. Blackwelder Ave. #2. Admission is free. Call 628-2689.

Nothing to blow up about


Gazette staff
A notification by Valley Brook police about a possible explosive in a car turned out to be nothing more than a phone charger and wires in a bag.

Edmond’s Rusty Dunagan has no regrets about his military service or losing three limbs during a combat patrol in Afghanistan nearly four years ago.
