Sonic reports on 3rd quarter
Weaker sales because of the economic environment produced a small third-quarter profit for Oklahoma City’s Sonic Corp. Net income for the quarter ended May 31 fell to $16.8 million, or 27 cents per share, from $17.2 million, or 28 cents per share, in the same period last year. Revenue declined 10 percent as same-store sales were off 5.4 percent.

Public invited to home expo
The Oklahoma Homebuyer Expo will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Coca Cola Bricktown Events Center, 425 E California. The come-and-go event is free to the public and door prizes will be given away.

Cards needed for shows
Participants in state swine shows and exhibits will be required to have official premise identification cards as of Aug. 1, per a measure passed by the state Board of Agriculture on Wednesday. The board enacted the requirement because of the threat of a swine flu epidemic. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry will issue the cards at no charge and keep the information confidential. Officials say the rule will protect economic and social interests.
