Point: ‘A new fiscal reality’


David Blatt
The economic downturn has hit the Oklahoma state budget hard. With high unemployment and low commodity prices, we’ve seen revenues plummet by almost 25 percent.

Pie chart

Ready for a slice? Pies are poised to become the breakout dessert of 2011.

Food and Drink Features

Malena Lott
They don’t call it “as American as apple pie” for nothing. Simple, cheap and quick have always been hallmarks of patriotic popularity (hot dogs and hamburgers, anyone?), and that goes double when it’s also piping hot and delicious. And popular.

Purple Church - Woodsporn/Hayseed EPs


Stephen Carradini
I hadn’t even heard the “Woodsporn” EP before I was impressed with Oklahoma City band Purple Church, because anything that comes handnumbered, hand-printed and sporting a mini-zine (complete with fold-out mini-poster!) as liner notes is pretty impressive.

On the move

Local stores are playing musical chairs: expanding, name-changing musical chairs. Confused?


Jenny Coon Peterson

It can be hard when a store moves. Even with lots of notice, many people will miss the lead-up to the big move and just assume the shop popped its clogs. It doesn’t help when old addresses keep showing up in Google.

Alcohol problem

Letters to the Editor

Kevin Acers
I am not impressed with the Gazette’s glib celebration of alcohol consumption in the March 9 “Alcoholmanac” issue. Evidently, a business decision was made to use St. Patrick’s Day as a selling point to advertisers by capitalizing on the day’s associations with booze.

Gazette staff
Even if you haven’t seen “Henry IV,” catch an all-female production of “Henry V,” as staged by Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park.
