Celebrity Sightings[edit]

I propose that this section be removed from the article. It sounds more like a gossip magazine than an encyclopedia. Any thoughts? Spacecadetdan (talk) 02:40, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree wholeheartedly. Garth Brooks doesn't even live within the Owasso city limits. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.251.165.130 (talk) 17:45, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Section removed from article[edit]

This heavily editorial (and unencyclopedically written) section has been removed from the article for consideration here:


Entertainment

The Lanes at Coffee Creek bowling center was opened in 2005 and is regarded as the the top rated bowling and entertainment center in the region.


Education

Owasso's proximity to Tulsa provides its citizens with employment in a major metropolitan area, yet retains the benefits of small town living.

Owasso Public Schools are located just north of Tulsa, Oklahoma, divided north to south by Highway 169. Our community has experienced tremendous growth in the last ten years. The town continues to grow towards the north and east with many new \and Rogers Counties.

Enrollment has grown to 8,650 for the 2007-2008 school year, served by 14 instructional sites, including 7 elementary schools, 6th Grade Center, 7th Grade Center, 8th Grade Center, Mid High, Owasso High School and the Owasso Ram Academy. With construction underway at several district sites, Owasso Public Schools is working to meet the needs of our growing student population.

The Owasso School District provides excellent physical facilities and equipment to support a quality program that meets the educational requirements of the students. School buildings and auxiliary facilities afford maximum safety, protection of health, and accommodations to the physical conditions of those who use them.

In addition to an excellent teaching staff, every school has a qualified counselor and a media specialist. The Owasso Public Schools have five school nurses to accommodate the needs of the students in the system.

Owasso residents believe that education is the key to their children's future. Our schools and community are working together to provide the children with quality educational opportunities that will prepare them for a prosperous future.

Cultural References[edit]

Should this unverified piece be in the cultural reference section?

Can anyone find any information on the nonfictional novel or the author listed? Or a copy of any article confirming the gold coin supposedly found?

This was added in July, 2009 by User:Nickto, but it seems nobody has found data to support this. Given the lack of evidence to support (Uncited, anyone?) it might just be time to evaluate removal to the talk page for archival purposes. Thoughts? 147.108.253.254 (talk) 19:07, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Street Names[edit]

From the article: east/west streets north of what is now Broadway were named for Union generals, while the east/west streets to the south were named for Confederate generals. These names were later changed, and are now named after streets. The sentence in Bold offered me the laugh of the day but it should be changed to something useful or omitted. 24.92.208.157 (talk) 19:21, 5 May 2011 (UTC)PLC 5 May 2011

Street names "were later changed, and are now named after streets." Eh, what exactly does that mean? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.125.22.100 (talk) 21:36, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
