News of the day – Yes and protons
Events. Riders compete for more than $300,000 in prizes at the inaugural Battle in the Saddle. No word on what type of battling the saddles will actually do. I’m thinking jousting.
Construction. Improvements are being made to eight of nine truss bridges targeted for repair. Nobody drive over the ninth bridge: Highway 100 over Dry Creek in Cherokee County.
Crime. Police accuse a Lawton man of carrying a machete and damaging a neighbor’s property. Surprisingly, police say alcohol was involved. Weird.
Crime. Two former Dell employees have been charged with computer fraud. The employees frozen up before entering a plea, forcing the judge to call the Dell help line.
Charity. Martha Burger, an alumna of the University of Central Oklahoma, is pledging $500,000 to build the college a boathouse on the Oklahoma River. Dear Ms. Burger: I, too, will build a boathouse for a donation of $500,000. Call me.
Nonsense. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is suing a painting contractor, accusing the company of doing bad work on the Internate 40 bridge over the North Canadian River. The I-40 bridge is substandard? Sir, I do not believe it.
Medicine. ProCure Proton Therapy Center celebrates first year of existence. Protons celebrate 14 billion years of existence.
