Public education is changing


Brandon Dutcher
When I started school in Bartlesville some 40 years ago, “public education” basically meant you went to the government-operated school closest to your house.

The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box

On her majesty's National Treasure.


Action

Rod Lott
Hasn't Frozen earned enough coin? (That's rhetorical; it has.) So instead of taking the family to see it again and again, try something different. Try The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box, which opens Friday exclusively at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial. If your kids enjoy the National Treasure movies, they're apt to enjoy this live-action British film, too.

Don't fornicate, gossip or wrestle a bear. Ever

Often obscure, most of these laws are still on the books, but whether or not they’re actually enforceable is another matter.

Tim Farley
Swearing, blasphemy or having sex with the neighbor’s wife can be debated on moral grounds, but there’s no doubt all three are illegal in Oklahoma.

Minority report

Local theater companies struggle to find a pool of diverse racial groups for roles in some plays.


Performing Arts

Mark Beutler
Casting someone like Carrie Underwood in a production of Dreamgirls, which features a mostly black cast, would probably be a bit of a stretch. But when it comes to the theater community, especially in Oklahoma City, finding a racially diverse pool of talent for certain shows is difficult, according to local casting directors. Whether looking for an actor who is black, Asian or Hispanic, casting directors said Oklahoma City just doesn’t have enough actors to fill certain roles.
