Defining conservative values

The campaign for the state’s 2nd Congressional District will start a conversation about what it means to be a conservative.


Chris Smith
With the announcement of Rep. Dan Boren’s retirement from Congress, our state lost a loyal voice in Washington at a time when balanced, commonsense values and bipartisan influence are most needed in a body that doesn’t seem to have much of either at this time.

A poet's passion

A metro-area writer uses empathy to connect with readers and youth.


Ryan Querbach
If you saw Robert Swain Lewis, you wouldn’t be surprised that he’s an Army veteran. You might not even be surprised to learn he works for the Oklahoma County Office of Juvenile Affairs. But, you would almost definitely be surprised that he is a published poet.

A few months ago, over lunch with friends, a discussion arose about favorite sandwich places in the metro. We discussed breads, meats, cheeses and even vegetarian options. The one thing all agreed on is that a well-made sandwich is truly a form of art.

Womb to grow

Wayne Coyne’s wildly experimental art space, Womb, is now open to the public, with no messy afterbirth.

Visual Arts

Joshua Boydston
People had been trying to enter Womb everyday, curious as to what the psychedelic-painted exterior is housing inside. The mural of swirling color, abstract patterns, eyes and candied lips covering the entire structure certainly contrast with the glass, mortar and steel facades of the surrounding buildings on the evolving Automobile Alley.

Rugby this

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
So what if the Oklahoma City Crusaders fell a little short in last year’s semifinals? The rugby team promises to bring home the championship trophy this year, and they could probably beat us up, so who are we to argue?
