Mayor McModern

How Mick Cornett handles the challenges of modernizing a city in a rustic state will determine his legacy.


Keith Gaddie
Any Oklahoman who ever flew on Delta knows Bill Hartsfield. The airport in Atlanta exists because of Hartsfield, who as a councilman aggressively promoted aviation. As mayor, he was first and foremost a booster of innovations and of Atlanta business.

Bummer in the city

Weighty achievement

From fattest to fittest, OKC is a million pounds lighter, thanks in part to one man’s shedding of 200 of them.


Jenn Scott

When Oklahoma City landed on just about every “fattest” list imaginable, Mayor Mick Cornett did not sit idly by. He launched a million-pound challenge in 2007. Since then, the mayor has lost 38 pounds himself.

Great times for OKC

Letters to the Editor

Sandy Meyers
To live in Oklahoma City today is exciting. The approval by the Oklahoma City Council to restructure Centennial Plaza or Civic Center park is a great gift to all of us. Making this prominent property a spectacular centerpiece for the arts and civic affairs gives us all a feeling of pride and excitement.
