After Aubrey

News

Kelley Chambers
Some could argue that in addition to being in the energy business, Chesapeake Energy is in the Oklahoma City business. From shopping centers to the support of nonprofits and the arts, many rely on Chesapeake dollars. With the departure of Chesapeake co-founder and CEO Aubrey McClendon, many who benefit from the company’s philanthropic efforts wonder what’s next.

Pants or no pants — e-fairness is needed


Letters to the Editor

Steve Schlegel
I find it laughable that Hal Stevens thinks so little of brick-and-mortar retailers that he’d call us stooges for the state government and “inefficient” presumably because we chose to base our business in the community (Letters, Hal Stevens, “Mucking up marketplace fairness,” Aug. 7, Gazette). I was insulted for myself and the other retailers who are advocating for the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA) until I found out that Mr. Stevens is an eBay retailer. eBay is based around this loophole, and their lobbyists are paying through the nose to keep this loophole alive.

Kynd duds

A local company creates clothing and accessories using bamboo, a truly sustainable resource.


Devon Green
At Twisted Root Gallery, 3012 N. Walker Ave., in the historic Paseo Arts District of Oklahoma City, tucked into a space next to several paintings on display for sale, is an unassuming display of sunglasses that looks like it might be another piece of art itself. The ingenious frames with reflective, opaque lenses are so striking that they are at home there.
