Oklahoma City, OK – Askins considering open Okla Supreme Court seat
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Lt. Gov. Jari Askins says she doesn't know if she'll apply for an open seat on the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
Askins, an attorney and former judge, told The Oklahoman on Friday she's still reviewing whether she meets residency requirements for the opening, which was created when Justice Marian Opala died last month.
Tulsa, Ok – Despite losing money on its live horse racing meet, Fair Meadows is proving to be profitable for Expo Square and Tulsa County.
Figures provided to the Tulsa World by Expo Square show that for the fourth straight year, the live handle and revenues at Fair Meadows declined. The Tulsa County Public Facilities Authority lost $701,520 on the 34-day race meet, held in June and July.
Still, the track has made at least $1.5 million annually for the fairgrounds the past four years and is expected to do so again in 2010.
