Walk this way

An online survey aims to help OKC officials determine where to put up to 70 miles of sidewalks.


News

Mia Cantu
Oklahoma City officials are hoping additional sidewalks will make the metro more pedestrian-friendly, but determining where to build them isn’t so easy. Among the goals of MAPS 3, the latest chapter of the Metropolitan Area Projects aimed at improving quality of life in the city, is the addition of 50 to 70 miles of new sidewalks.

Creative dissent

Opposition came in various forms at last week’s rally against the Personhood Act.


News

Mia Cantu
“Get the U.S. out of my uterus,” is just one of nearly 40 handwritten signs held by stern-faced activists in Grace Fallen’s photography portraits. The black-and-white collection displayed on Facebook imparts an equally stark message of opposition to state Senate Bill 1433. Known as the Personhood Act, the measure asserts that life begins at conception.

Music

Mia Cantu
Folk and blues artist Randy Montgomery started making music when he was 14 years old. As a self-taught guitar player, he would mimic the ways of his musical idols, Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie.

For women

OKC native Kristin Davis returns to the state to head the Oklahoma Women’s Coalition.


News

Mia Cantu

In 2004, the Institute for Women’s Policy Research ranked Oklahoma fourth among the worst states for women. That statistic motivates members of the Oklahoma Women’s Coalition (OWC), which since its 2007 inception has advocated for policies that improve women’s lives. To further its efforts, the nonprofit last month hired its first executive director, Kristin Davis.
