That would be a great addition most anywhere.  But gosh I would love to see something like that closer, like on lake Skiatook.  Grand lake just doesn't appeal to me at all.

Let's see, Pete escaped a federal charge. Hmmmm, the devil could be hiding in the details.

Come on all you hard core republican fiscal conservatives. This plan is very similar to the Great Plains financing and debacle. The taxpayers will lose if it turns out bad.

Besides, Mr. Boylan seemed pretty ballsy putting the cart before the horse with the government help quotes. Seems like Chicago tactics. Leverage the government into action or else blame it for failing due to the lack of tax credits. He expects the state, you, to subsidize his development. Government, send Pete a message to not be too greedy. Surely, he could find other means of financing.
I bet it would be tough attracting more partners knowing past allegations.

Did Brad Henry deny this request once before? He should put a stop to welfare for the rich.

I heard the first 8 floors will have no visibility of the lake due to new condos being developed closer to the shoreline...
