A friend said she was charged an extra $3.50 per burger at a local mom and pop place. She ordered 6 for the family, so this added more than $20 to the bill. She said it was never posted on the menu and when asked about it, the owner got rude.

Is it legal to add such a charge without disclosing it?

OKLAHOMA CITY Ė Attorney General Mike Hunter today announced the stateís price gouging statute is in effect statewide following Pres. Donald Trumpís emergency declaration regarding COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus.

The price gouging statute, or the Emergency Price Stabilization Act, prohibits an increase of more than 10% for the price of goods or services after a declared emergency. The statute automatically triggers after the issuance of a state or federal emergency declaration.

For more information or to file a complaint, individuals are encouraged to contact the Attorney Generalís Consumer Protection Unit by phone at (405) 521-2029, or email at consumerprotection@oag.ok.gov.

' Online registration for the event includes an acknowledgement "that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By attending the Rally, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; BOK Center; ASM Global; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers liable for any illness or injury." '  

Trump campaign's are likely to become a regular part of American life as the country reopens and the coronavirus remains a threat. However, the waivers offer only a base-level protection against liability.

"They only give limited protections, so they never would protect against, for example, gross negligence or recklessness," said Sharkey. "One could argue that holding a large public gathering that will draw people together in a context in which they're not able to do social distancing or follow the directive of the CDC, et cetera. One could argue that is grossly negligent."

There won't be a mask in the building to be seen. Darwin, come on down!


We're gonna spike for sure, most of it will be imported.
Our hospitals may be swamped come July 4.
And then the protests.
All so that our governor can impress his daddy.

History will not look kindly on this.

I think you guys are crazy! That second one looks phenomenal, especially the building on the right with casement windows and a bit of streamline Art Deco style. That's the kind of bold architecture we need to make the Arts District have an even more unique flavor. That first photo looks about like any other downtown development anywhere in the country. Nice, but nothing memorable.

My favorite parts of OKC's downtown/midtown are in areas which have a bit of mid-century modern flair in the buildings, and that second design is a bit reminiscent of some of those. But it is probably the more expensive option and probably won't be built.

The building on the right isn't the problem. The main building is stacked on a parking garage and has all the beauty of the of Cimarex building, but with brick!. It's terrible.

Funny enough, the latest street view of that building shows it being gutted already last September:

That's a big job!

I noticed the same thing on street view.  I stopped using Boulder when it was under construction near downtown, but started using it again recently, so I missed the early activity.

The first one looks pretty great. I kinda hate the second one.

Wow, this is really the year of mid-rises for Tulsa. I wonder if this will make it to reality with all that is going on at the moment.

The overpass immediately north of this project is always full of homeless, and John 3:16 is just at the NW corner, so it will definitely be a harsh juxtaposition.

Just up Boulder from 21st street, the River Park Lofts building (1840 S Boulder Ave) is being gutted.  Interesting structure to try to save.  Any ideas on what is planned there?

Funny enough, the latest street view of that building shows it being gutted already last September:
