Take my campus ... please!


CFN

Gazette staff
The Green family, owners of Hobby Lobby and Mardel stores, can sell everything from overpriced furniture to plastic Jesus night lights to bad end-times fiction, but they can’t give away a free school. Twice this year, the Oklahoma family has tried to donate a 217-acre campus in Northfield, Mass., only to be rejected by the objects of their charity.

Sun and shade


News

Kevan Goff-Parker
Visitors at Oklahoma City Veterans Affairs Medical Center can’t miss it: A massive, gray and black solar-panel system now looms over half of the parking lot, providing both shade and power for the medical facility and the more than 225,000 veterans it serves.

Countering contraceptives


CFN

Gazette staff
The owners of Hobby Lobby and Mardel are continuing their quest to keep the Affordable Care Act from forcing them to provide emergency contraception insurance coverage to their employees. That vow — presumably made with a fist waved righteously in the air — came after U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton on Nov. 19 denied a preliminary injunction sought by the Green family, which owns the Christian-oriented businesses.

I Am Bruce Lee

They call him Bruce.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I was incorrect in thinking the documentary I Am Bruce Lee wouldn't reveal anything new about the screen's greatest martial artist. While not exactly earth-shattering, the facts I learned numbered many.

T.I. — Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper T.I. has released Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, his eighth studio album and the first since his most recent stint in prison. The title is no doubt a reference to his legal troubles on federal weapons charges, but it also makes reference to the Marvin Gaye song of the same name, which is sampled in the album’s opening track.

Ripple Green — A Lungful


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings of Leon are two of the biggest rock groups in the world, but you don’t see many bands trying to put the two together. It works better than you might think on Oklahoma City three-piece Ripple Green’s new EP, A Lungful, which speaks worlds of the members’ respective talents.
