The same two cars have been in my family for more than a few years now.
They are both still running, and neither require monthly payments. Those are the best kinds of cars – paid for.
But I see the mileage numbers. I hear the knocks. I can feel the stutters.
I’ll be in the market for at least one new vehicle very soon, I think.
That’s why I’m glad The Oklahoman and NewsOK is now a BestRide affiliate. Now I have more options to choose from.
Go to NewsOK.com and select CARS from the top navigation on every page on NewsOK.
Or better yet, select the page from the navigation list on NewsOK’s Mobile website.

We have a little tradition lately.
You share your photos. We publish your photos.
We’ve done it in a variety of way in the past couple of years. It started with #MyOklahoma in 2013. Most recently, we filled up a few pages with your back-to-school photos.
You share. We publish. We have the steps down.
In the end, the story of life in Oklahoma is told in snapshots.
This past week, we’ve changing it up just a little bit. We’re asking you to share your pictures of your travels around the world this summer.
Maybe you made it to the Texas side of Lake Texoma? We’d love to share your pictures.
Maybe you made to the other side of the world? We’d love to share those
If you’re looking for a garage sale, The Oklahoman’s Classifieds pages are the place to start. That’s the best way the sellers get cars along their curb, so that’s the place to start planning.
This week, we launched a new feature to an old standard.
If you’re looking to map the sales, plan your morning and find the best locations, you should be looking at NewsOK.com.
Go to the Classifieds page on NewsOK.com. You will find an interactive map that identifies the locations of all the listed garage and estate sales.
Click on any of the locations. The data from that location will give you the address, the details about the sale and, most importantly, driving directions.
I’m a sports fan. I read all our sports stories. The Oklahoman's sports coverage team does a great job.
I read everything I can. I watch all the Press Row videos from our studios. I listen to the roundtable discussions and the podcasts produced by that award-winning group.
Because I’m interested in sports, I also will listen to sports radio on my commute home in the evening.
(For the record, Berry Tramel is entertaining on the radio, but there’s much more of that entertainment and insight in the pages of The Oklahoman and NewsOK.com. He doesn’t have to share time when he’s writing his columns.)
On Thursday afternoon, however, I spent my commute listening to someone who is not
A mellow musician from Norman serenaded us here at The Oklahoman on Thursday. It was the second such performance on the staircase that overlooks the newsroom her in our downtown offices.
His name was Kyle Reid, and I wrote this piece as we listened to his tunes. Doug Hoke took pictures and created a gallery -- that's what he does. Check out all the photos here.
Before the short show, I asked Tiffany Gibson, our assistant live/enterprise editor if we would be recording for the public on Periscope. That was a stupid question. Of course she was going to be doing that. She whisked around our two floors and streamed from different locations to share our nice little private concert (which, by the way, was organized by
If you live where I live on the top side of Oklahoma County, the rumbles and shakes aren't so jarring anymore.
Was that thunder? Or did the dog run into the chair? (It's a clumsy dog.)
Was it an earthquake? Or are the kids roughhousing in the other room?
I asked the same type of rhetorical questions about 18 months ago in this space. That's what goes through my head when I feel the house shake a bit.
The truth is that if you look up and wonder if that was as earthquake, it probably was. Then you go about your day. It's usually no big deal.
Only once have I stood up and thought a moment about what I should do next if the walls started to move. That was about exactly one year
