Indian museum builds culture, future


State Sen. Kyle D. Loveless
An almost $4 billion economic impact will elevate our city and state once the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum is finished and opened. In addition to the economic benefits, however, there also would be tremendous cultural and artistic benefits that the AICCM would bring.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, where are your PR people, anyway?

Apparently, they’re getting their wires crossed and leaving Gov. Mary Fallin to look like she’s not keeping up with the times.

Corporate democracy isn’t viable


Letters to the Editor

James Nimmo
Why, oh, why have so many Americans been hoodwinked by the gross idea that corporate democracy can be exported to countries that do not want it and don’t have the society to implement it?

Pants or no pants — e-fairness is needed


Letters to the Editor

Steve Schlegel
I find it laughable that Hal Stevens thinks so little of brick-and-mortar retailers that he’d call us stooges for the state government and “inefficient” presumably because we chose to base our business in the community (Letters, Hal Stevens, “Mucking up marketplace fairness,” Aug. 7, Gazette). I was insulted for myself and the other retailers who are advocating for the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA) until I found out that Mr. Stevens is an eBay retailer. eBay is based around this loophole, and their lobbyists are paying through the nose to keep this loophole alive.

CFN

Gazette staff
Meet King Leon, the skunk named after the rockin’ band with Oklahoma family ties. In order to keep the five-month-old critter as her own, Michigan teen Keili Woodruff paid $200, an additional $100 fee for the wildlife permit and had its scent gland removed, she told The Bay City Times.

Dr. Phil gets schooled


CFN

Gazette staff
Amid the recent talk about rape after hyper-public cases like the one in Steubenville, Ohio, you would think professional social media users would have figured out how to approach the subject. Sadly, they haven’t.

The hot place to be

From desolate to in-demand, Midtown has risen from a ‘neglected backwater’ with help from a dedicated community.


News

Tim Farley
Eighteen years ago, Midtown was nothing more than a “neglected backwater” replete with halfway houses and abandoned buildings. Faced with blighted conditions years before the April 19, 1995, disaster, Midtown was instead a ghost town created by the 1980s’ devastating oil bust and ensuing disinvestment.

Driven to paganism?

A Christian’s lawsuit that fights the Native American “rain god” imagery on state license plates wins favor from the nonreligious sector, too.


News

Greg Horton
A local minister’s lawsuit claiming that Native American imagery on license plates forces him to become a “mobile billboard” for pagan religion will get another chance after being thrown out of a higher court.

News

Tim Farley
While work continues on a new elementary school downtown, city leaders say other schools eventually will be needed in the area to maintain residential development there.
