Working toward walkability


Commentary

Randy Entz

No matter what health statistic is considered, Oklahoma City generally does not fare very well. It has higher rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease than most of its peer cities. No doubt some of that can be attributed to personal decisions, but some of it is due to our built environment. We have built a city that, in most areas, makes travel by walking and cycling more difficult than driving a vehicle.

'Crank' that


Letters to the Editor

Michael Hopkins
They say people in glass houses should not throw rocks. In his letter “Mistaken environmentalists” (Sept. 14, Gazette), Mickey McVay seems to suggest that those who say that humans might have contributed to climate change are ignorant idiots.

Something to sneeze about


CFN

Gazette staff
Eyes are watering, nasal passages are running and noses are sneezing with reckless abandon. That’s because record pollen counts are wreaking havoc during the fall allergy season that won’t let up until Jack Frost starts nipping at our nostrils.
