New year’s eve party fell flat


CFN

Jennifer May
Let me start by saying I am a Kevin Durant fan just as much as the next Oklahoman. Our family has season tickets to the Thunder games, and we do our best to keep up with KD’s work as an athlete and philanthropist. I nearly jumped through the roof when my husband and I received “exclusive stage” VIP tickets to his New Year’s Eve party.

CFN

Gazette staff
Representative Sally Kern is just thinking of the children, especially the right for them to bear, well, things in the shape of arms. In a funny little piece of legislature proposed by her, it would make it illegal for teachers to punish children for having weapons on their minds and indulging in playtime activities such as drawing a gun, using fingers or hands in the shape of a gun or making gun noises.

LETTERS

God is always timely


Letters to the Editor

Joe "Sarge" Nelson
Monumental offense (News; Brittany Pickering; August 28, 2013; Oklahoma Gazette) … That’s a false description of challenging God’s word. I am neither a pastor, priest, monk, Jewish or any of these things, but I am a man who has probably broken every law God has placed up this world. And it has, without a doubt, one way or another, caused me to see me as I am and was, and change did come.
