From city councilor Phil Lakin:
Question: Oklahoma teacher raises seem very important to just about everyone I know in Tulsa. Since the OK Legislature hasn't been able to fix this for years,... what if we stepped up and did it ourselves? Rather than paying for raises via mandatory taxes (income, gasoline, etc.), would you make a voluntary charitable donation (tax deductible) to support teacher raises or bonuses? Adriane and I would gladly donate $5K to help our teachers. Would you -- at any amount? If so, just type "I'M IN" below. If there are enough of us who would contribute (any amount), then I'll set up a fund at Tulsa Community Foundation to collect funds and get those funds to Tulsa-area teachers. Share this with others. If this idea gets enough traction, maybe we can make a real difference for those who want to stay in Tulsa, teaching our kids and protecting them in their time of greatest need. If not, then I'll continue to look for other solutions. Though this is a short-term solution, and we need to continue to press our legislature to fix our revenue and expense issues, I'm tired of waiting and want to send a very clear message to our teachers that they are valued and valuable. This is heavy on my heart and mind.
This new building on 21st looks bigger than just the old Goldie's location.

Thank you to Dunkin Donuts for helping to preserve our oceans!
This small announcement today about Dunkin’ Donuts is groundbreaking news for our environment.
They are phasing out all foam cups from all its stores by 2020!!!
Tell your favorite drink place to do the same and save our oceans and sea life!
Very yummy queso! Definitely give it a try.
Thought this was a novel concept to inform residents about city Board and Commission vacancies
Well, looks like Tulsa didn't make the cut...
Is the Page Belcher buidling in the wrong location or the BOK?
Looking forward to seeing solutions/ideas from the Ohio-based planning team.
All PM wants for Christmas is a little more information.
Does the TW know why Reasor's is no longer part of this proposed downtown project?
Might be useful information from a successful grocer who knows the Tulsa market.
What???? Special election on Tuesday to change the city's charter????
Take some time to read Michael Bate's analysis of the proposed charter changes and be an informed voter
Next Tuesday is a City of Tulsa special election, with seven proposed charter amendments on the ballot. For each ballot item, I've posted the actual charter lan...guage that would change if approved, along with my commentary. I've written about six of the seven propositions; hope to finish the last one tomorrow. The linked introduction has links to individual articles about each proposition, plus a timeline of changes to Tulsa's city election process.
I am co-leading a group at the city which is asking if our city's cultural and recreational opportunities helped you come to Tulsa or will help you remain in Tulsa and asking where our gaps might be. Your input would be very helpful.
