  • Widening earnings gap shows value of college education

    | Published: Tue, Feb 11, 2014

    WASHINGTON — The earnings gap between young adults with and without bachelor’s degrees has stretched to its widest level in nearly half a century. It’s a sign of the growing value of a college education despite rising tuition costs, according to an analysis of census data released Tuesday. Young adults with just a high-school diploma earned 62 percent of the typical salary of college graduates. That’s down from 81 percent in 1965, the earliest year for which comparable data are available.

  • Mayor: 85 percent of Moore residents will rebuild after tornado

    Updated: Mon, Feb 10, 2014

While there are some empty lots where homeowners have chosen to sell and move on, the majority of homes in the city are being rebuilt, Lewis said. “We think about 85 percent of them are going to come back,” Lewis said Monday during a panel discussion at the summit. Some Moore residents — particularly those who lived in older, smaller homes, were underinsured and their insurance settlements have not been sufficient to cover the cost of rebuilding, Lewis said.
