Happy Saturday.

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and warm as we look back at this week’s Edmond headlines.


• Another ice and snow storm roared through Edmond.


If politicians are serious about border security, why not consider weather-stripping our border with Canada.


• An Edmond man has a collection of antique telephones that will be on display at Edmond Public Library throughout February.

It reminds me of the time I was a single man and I met a beautiful girl I wanted to get to know better.

I asked for her phone number and she said, "It’s in the phone book.”

I said, "But I don’t even know you name.”

She said, "That’s in the phone book, too.”


• Edmond Public Schools Associate Superintendent Brenda Lyons plans to present a proposal to the school board that would reduce daily class from seven to six at all five middle schools. It turns out that there wasn’t really an earthquake in Jones last week. It was just the sound waves caused by more than 1,000 Edmond middle school students cheering at the same time.


• I asked readers this week how they were going to prepare for this latest round of winter precipitation.

Peter J. Lepo, of Edmond, wrote, "I firmly believe that it is imperative to have a well-stocked emergency kit. It is a basic civic requirement. For reference I have attached the list used to stock my kit: 1. Gin.”
