What a difference a year makes ... (City Hall)
I didn't get a photo of the CHS students out picking up trash on campus Friday at various times but did see these students changing from classes in the new 6 classroom building to the main building. Kurt Scullawl who teaches Environmental Science and Biology at the high school had the kids out helping with the appearance of the campus as well as learning about environmental issues. The blocking sleds are (or will be) getting some springtime action with spring football conditioning practices.
The new signage on the windows of the Chamber of Commerce office at 11th & Main contributes to the historic character of downtown. The next Chamber of Commerce meeting will be held at the Library Thursday April 6th. The speaker will be Mike Brown of the local newspaper's parent company CPI. The Chamber office relocated from the Depot Museum in Dec. 2005.
I get occasional complaints that certain pages on do not display properly. If your pages appear with some photos or text covered by other text boxes you may want to adjust your text size. All of my pages are sized with "Medium" sized text. If your browser is set for text of a different size you may have boxes only partially filled or boxes overlapped. My text size setting is under the "View" top menu selection but your browser may be different. I'd appreciate any feedback if this helps or if you have other issues. -- Ted Wright 4/2/2006 (email:
Matthew Weaver of the Oklahoma Main Street office spoke to the residents and merchants that attended the first of a series of seminars at City Hall Friday evening (March 31st). This session was titled "Pardon Our Dust". The main theme was turning what some would consider a problem (temporary construction changes) into an opportunity to adapt and communiate effectively with customers. The detailed design and construction schedules have not yet been released but construction is expected later this year on the TEA-21 project which will make major streetscape improvements to the two block section of Main Street between 10th & 12th Streets.

A second seminar is scheduled for April 21 titled "Sharpen Your Competetive Edge". (4/5 update: the date has now moved to the 2nd or 3rd week of May for the next seminar)
