New heels

hit campus

Every fall, college campuses swarm with women wearing all kinds of flats, but there are always a few who walk across campus in stilettos. There's a different breed of shoe showing up: The high-top wedge sneaker is a heel and sport shoe hybrid, providing a middle ground.

Mesh panels, white leather-cap toes and Velcro are nods to traditional sneaks.


Historian to sign books

Historian Glen V. McIntyre will sign his book “Enid: 1893-1945” from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Best of Books, 1313 E Danforth Road.

The book is a photographic history of Enid.
