The most talked-about options in recent years have been making the series home-and-home, moving it to the new $1.1 billion Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, or keeping it at its traditional Cotton Bowl home in Dallas during the Texas State Fair.

Etowah Road work

In other business, Cleveland County commissioners unanimously approved a funding and payment agreement with the state Transportation Department regarding a $6 million project for Etowah Road in Noble, from 48th Avenue SE to 120th Avenue SE.

The state will finance the project, but county officials will bid out the contracts, a task normally handled by the Transportation Department. Assistant District Attorney David Batton asked commissioners last week to table the item so final details could be worked out.
