Dance it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Water Won’t Wait sounds like a city conservation effort. Instead, it’s an all-new, original production of Perpetual Motion Dance, staging Friday-Sunday at Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, 3000 General Pershing. Through the local troupe’s signature visuals and ingenuity, the performance explores “the unalterable current of time.” Tickets are $10-$18. Call 206-2843 or visit perpetualmotiondance.org.

Delicious when wet


Gazette staff
Taste tests are typically re- served for food manufacturers who want to know if a new product has the potential to be a big seller. You know, stuff like potato chips, salsas and the like. Who knew that tap water was also worthy such experiments?

Fracking: Good or bad? Is it that easy?


Cal Hobson
Fracking is the injection of huge amounts of water, sand and chemicals into oil and natural gas-producing rock formations far below the surface. Horizontal drilling is the opposite of vertical in that the drill pipe bends at some point “down hole” and, thus, can penetrate multiple producing “plays.”
