‘Poverty is the worst form of violence’

Letters to the Editor

Glen Garcia
What a novel excuse for being selfish, miserly, complacent and sedentary. Cite Bible passages and pretend you’re superior to all the “evil” liberals out there who are out to increase your taxes.

Mmm ... Minty!

Norman’s much-loved Starlight Mints announce digital releases, singer’s solo album.

I’ve only enjoyed the pleasure of hearing the Starlight Mints play once, but it was most definitely enough to make the email I received from Allan Vest today a very happy one. 

According to Vest, the band’s two earliest albums, 2000’s “The Dream That Stuff Was Made Of” and  2003’s “Built On Squares” are now available for purchase from  iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic, Rhapsody, Napster and other digital music outlets. While OKS is personally very fond of “Rhino Stomp” and “Drowaton” in general, this is good news that the band’s older material’s finally found its way online. Now go buy it!

Vest, of Edmond, also said that he’s currently working on solo material in pursuit of a career in film and television scoring. Go, Oklahoma!

OKG7 Dining

Carol Smaglinski
Here’s some fine dining advice if you have more bills due at the end of the month than money. Bet you’ve been to a few of these, but it was probably on dad’s dime, right?

Silly over Philly

Steady clientele fill the unassuming neighborhood Hobby’s Hoagies for Philly cheesesteaks and pizza packed with flavor.

Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
Customers, with real respect, stand in front of the open kitchen in Hobby’s Hoagies in Edmond. They watch the juggling act going on before them as the crew pumps out pizza, Reubens, hoagies and justifiably famous Philadelphia cheesesteaks. They even make their own bread.

Point: Creating a boomtown in OKC

The growth and success of Oklahoma City and the metro area is because of the hard work and dedication of its residents, great leadership and strategic decisions. The metro area is strategically positioning itself to be the hub for individual freedom, initiative and entrepreneurship.
