Have a heart

Artwork has some meaning behind it. But the meaning behind the pieces to be shown and auctioned Friday at the ninth annual “Art with a Heart” benefit may carry more meaning than usual.

Gun violence is society's cancer


Letters to the Editor

Mack Paul
Grant “Jake” Goss (Letters, “Councilman misfires with gun comment,” Feb. 16, Gazette) makes an excellent point in his defense of gun ownership when he compares the efforts at gun control with efforts to criminalize drugs.

Celebrate boys, b-days and 'staches

This month, give cancer the middle finger.

Do you like boys? I do.

You've probably noticed your Facebook and Twitter feeds filled with the pleas of your men who are growing 'staches in honor of “Movember.”

They want you to donate to their cause. Now, if you're like me, you are generally inundated with the pleas of many for some sort of financial support. After the budgeting and balancing of that hard-earned paycheck, sometimes there's only a meager sum left for the good of mankind.

I urge you to consider the Movember Madness. This movement funds awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer.

Think about your favorite man. Who is it?

Well, I'll tell you who mine is.

It's this guy right here – my grandfather, who the family lovingly refers to as “Pawpaw.”

You might be wondering what this has to do with 'staches and such. I'll tell you:
1. He's a man.
2. He's a prostate cancer survivor.
3. It's his 75th birthday today.

Without the amazing research done, my Pawpaw might not be here today. And I wouldn't have pictures like this:





As you can see, I'm not the only person who would miss him. His honey of 53 years (and counting) would, too.

The point is: Cancer sucks and research costs money. So, get involved if you love your men as much as I love mine!

Though Pawpaw doesn't have a Facebook and isn't growing a 'stache in honor of the cause, there are many people who are. Find yourself a participant and give a little love so we can have more moments like this:

Nothing but net

A Del City sinks a half-court shot at a Thunder game to win $20,000.

Oklahoma City NBA fan Heath Kufahl lined up behind the half-court line at last night’s Thunder game against the Los Angeles Lakers as Rumble began his drum roll and the Chesapeake Energy Arena went silent as he released the ball and said his prayers ... Swish!
