These Afghans will be the ones that don't like the Taliban any more than we do.


That don't mean squat to Okies.

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Unfortunately, you are probably correct.

I hope more come so that we get a critical mass for a healthy local Afghan community.

More diversity for Tulsa makes for a better community.  BTW, the new Arkansas River dam project; glad to see they have gotten started, Santa Fe Square Project (European-style plaza, apartments and a 12-story office tower) and completion of WPX.  

St. Francis Hospital's $250 million expansion; IMO, this is a huge project, a new six-story tower with 124 patient rooms.  Hope St. Francis will regain Trauma center status. This will place St. Francis among the largest hospital complexes in Oklahoma with over 1.016 beds.

Seeing some good infill projects; build Tulsa back better...

2030 look for a big boom in population as more quality jobs will be added to the Tulsa Metropolitan Area.

Wrong St Francis.

It's St Francis South that is getting the $200+ million expansion.  St Francis main already completed a massive expansion in the last few years. The St Francis South expansion is part of a new south Tulsa medical district centered around 91st and Mingo that includes St Francis South, Hillcrest South, the new Muskogee Nation hospital (the former Cancer Treatment Center) and the new Ernest Childers VA clinic.

The bigger deal for central Tulsa is the $200 million expansion of the OSU Medical Center downtown including a new VA hospital and new psychiatric hospital.

Swake thanks for the correction and update.  That's truly impressive especially with all the construction projects recently completed in the Tulsa area and the one's on-going.  Great progress for Oklahoma.  Our two MSA's are seeing impressive construction projects.  Surprised to hear about OSU Medical Center downtown and the new VA hospital.  More centers addressing behavior management is needed in Oklahoma.

My brother worked at both Hillcrest and St. Francis (main, back in the 70s) as he enriched his experience in the X-ray and Nuclear Medicine fields.

Thanks again, continue to keep me informed...

The affects of the various Covid infections are taking its toll on our economy.  Everyone is wanting to get back to as close to normal operations as possible.  

Let's face it, most of us will probably be wearing masks and taking extra precautions (sanitizers) for our remaining time on earth.

As we witness people attacking one another, there's an even greater concern with the outbreak and potential return of diseases thought to have been eradicated decades ago.  Recall taking various vaccines as a child.  There appear to be so much misinformation which leads to more confusion and mistrust directed toward those trying to get a handle on the pandemic.  Use your best judgement and avoid garbage sites that cater to repeated misinformation.

Please get vaccinated to fight off and minimize the damage resulting from covid infections.   Wish everyone the best.

First Afghan refugees have arrived in Oklahoma, Catholic Charities of OKC says

Oklahoman:  https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2021/09/24/afghan-refugees-arrive-okc-greeted-catholic-charities-cair-ok/5850311001/

The first Afghan family was met at Will Rogers World Airport by staff members from Catholic Charities and CAIR-OK, Kim Mizar, Catholic Charities' communications director, said in a news release. She said Catholic Charities provided transportation to a safe, clean environment for the refugees to live in while they transition, and CAIR-OK provided welcome bags and a welcome meal for "our new neighbors." --Oklahoman.
