Sustainable Yards and Gardens Beautify While Saving Time, Money and the Environment

Trash Talk by BETH TURNER

Flowers are blooming, the sun is warm and the grass is getting tall. After mowing for the first time this season, I realized just how many ways our personal patches of green can either help or hurt our environment, as well as either suck up our time or give it back to us so we can enjoy our outdoor oasis.

Tulsa Tech Student Makes Her Own Path

News From Tulsa Tech By DR. STEVE TIGER

Haley George always did well in school. An instinctive and creative problem-solver, with a smile that lights up any room, she had no difficulty keeping up, successfully passing her classes, or facing the unique challenges high school students often encounter. However, halfway through high school, things began to change, and the challenges, along with the amount of overdue coursework, grew quickly.

Center of Universe Adds to Local Buzz

Out & About in Greater Tulsa By EMILY RAMSEY

It warms my heart to see all that is happening in Tulsa.

I certainly hold no ill will toward Oklahoma City, but I must say it is thrilling, and has been a long time coming, to see the renewed interest of companies in our fair city over our nearby capital: notably, Costco opening in South Tulsa, possibly by the end of the year, and, boosting Brookside’s appeal, the February opening of Urban Outfitters and Trader Joe’s setting up shop by the end of the year.

On Architecture By ROGER COFFEY, AIA

The office has changed very little from my days home from college when I would stop in to see my dad, except for the security check-in computer, the elaborate work stations manned by two administrative assistants, and the relatively new plastic laminate work countertop. Our built environment sometimes changes slowly, and Webster High School was built to last.

Historic Fire Alarm Building May Become Museum

On Architecture By ROGER COFFEY, AIA

Tucked away at 1010 E. 8th St., close to Centennial Park, is a modest building, and one of Tulsa’s Art Deco jewels. The Fire Alarm Building was built in 1930 and 1931 and was a response to the city’s growth in the 1920s. Tulsa had not only a Central Fire Station but suburban stations throughout the city to accommodate a population that had doubled in 10 years. Requirements for Tulsa to maintain a lower fire insurance class rate necessitated a fire-proof building at a minimum of 150 feet from any adjacent building. Thus, this seemingly isolated location was selected.
