Police unions in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Seattle; and Syracuse, New York, have pushed back against vaccination requirements, as has the union
representing state police in Massachusetts.
Reluctance among officers — front-line workers whose jobs often involve extensive community contact — to get vaccinated has raised public health concerns. An outbreak of the highly contagious delta variant in a police force could also pose a risk to public safety.

"The delta variant is not like previous Covid lineages, and unvaccinated people in their 20s, 30s, 40s or 50s — meaning the ages that people are in law enforcement — are going into hospitals," said Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and a co-director of the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development.
According to data compiled by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a nonprofit in Washington that tracks law enforcement  deaths, Covid-19 killed more officers in 2020 than gun violence, car accidents and all other causes combined.

Awesome view of the Basilica as you travel south on I-35. Can get a glimpse of the project.  All domes are in place see construction cam:   https://webcampub.multivista.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=aPublicWebcam.embed&WebcamPublicEmbedUID=94BCCE88-AE07-4F31-A958-474BE766DA40&width=700&height=400&background=black

Should be able to see more of this project filed in November--interior construction will speed up in the winter months.  Construction target 2022 for the Basilica.

The Pilgrim Center is apart of this project.

                 
                                                            A Place of Pilgrimage

Standing as a beacon of faith and a visible sign of the Church’s presence in Oklahoma, the Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine will be a resource for the entire archdiocese. The Shrine will welcome pilgrims from throughout Oklahoma, the United States and beyond.

The Shrine Church will be designed in the Spanish mission style, mirroring Blessed Stanley’s church in Santiago Atitlán.

One of the things with a cheaper facade is that you can always rip it off and or upgrade if the building is making money.  If you get an area going with the right critical mass (and a developer may need to pinch some pennies on the facade at first) it can then be worth the investment to upgrade as time goes on. Do the best you can at first and make it successful, then keep improving.

I think they said that the city rejected the EIFS siding and required brick. I don't think it's an issue now.

I visited the Cox Business Center recently and took some pictures of the newly remodeled east entrance.  They did a really nice job!

Another of the exterior


Interior shots










I also snagged a pic of the new Tulsa County offices that now fill the former Community Care building.  The exterior looks really good.  The only thing I don't care for is the red marble (stone?) at the bottom.  It does not look that great with the gray color of the building.

Now just need a building 4-5 stories to go up on the parking lot to the north of Vast Bank at Brady & Elgin.  I know Ross Group originally envisioned another phase on this site, possibly mixed-use residential.

I didn't stop by for a picture, but they are really moving quickly with construction here. Foundations are already set apparently, and as I went by yesterday there was rebar sticking out of the ground nearly ready for vertical construction to start imminently. Guessing this gets off the ground next week? I guess it helps that this building apparently doesn't have a basement. The foundations appeared to be mostly drilled cast-in-place piers from what little I have peeked at while driving past.

I know the architecture may not be that exciting, but I am looking forward to seeing the impact it will have on our skyline for this area. Between this, Vast, and WPX (or whatever we are calling it now), and several other infils, this area suddenly feels kinda dense and urban.

Republicans are getting more like Democrats every day, just on different subjects.


They have always been like that - just convinced people otherwise.

Current view from the ballpark. It's still an impressive view of downtown, even with the new buildings in the way. Once the view is done it will look really nice. The new tower going up on the Santa Fe block will enhance it even further.
