The new Edmond middle school needs a name

edmond ok

I have many fond memories of my days as an Edmond Middle Schooler. Like my first crush that led to my first rejection. Or the kid in my first hour science class in the seventh grade who used to call me a bitch when I wouldn’t help him cheat on the tests. Toward the end of the school year, I started giving him the wrong answers, but he made a D, and thought I had helped him get such a high-grade. He’s in jail now.

When I was an Edmond Middle Schooler, there were only four middle schools. Now, they’re about to build the sixth. When I was a pubescent mess of a person, the names of the schools were already chosen. But now, anyone can have an opportunity to decide the fate of this school! According to NewsOK.com:

EDMOND — Edmond Public Schools is asking for input in naming the district’s newest middle school, being built next to Frontier Elementary on Pennsylvania Avenue between Danforth and Covell roads.

The deadline for suggestions is noon Oct. 25.

Submission forms are available at all school offices, the district’s administrative center and at www.edmondschools.net. Request a submission form by emailing judy.thomas@edmondschools.net.

Forms should be returned by mail to Debbie Bendick, executive director of secondary education, EPS Administrative Center, 1001 W Danforth, Edmond, OK 73003.

A committee of patrons, teachers and district personnel will research the submissions and recommend potential school names for superintendent David Goin’s consideration. School board members make the final decision.

Monday Morning Tweets: Kelly Ogle made an early Gary England Day Pilgrimage…

It’s Monday morning, which means I’m nursing a hangover and trying to go through the motions as my boss scrutinizes my every move. I’m not the best employee, I’ll admit, but at least I’m not the worst. I think.

Anyway, I’ve gathered some tweets for y’all. There was college football, fall-like rain, Blake Shelton went crazy on Westboro Baptist, and Ben Allen is leaving us for a cuter, younger state that probably does yoga and has a tighter butt. And I’ve gathered all the highs and lows of the week as they played out on the greatest social medium to ever exist–Twitter. Check out the tweets after the jump!

Stereotypes About Your City: Bethany

bethany city seal

From time to time, we here at The Lost Ogle like to make fun of different cities in Oklahoma. It’s fun. (You should hear what we have to say about Gotebo.) But this got us to thinking. Why not do a series about various stereotypes that we all associate with different cities in Oklahoma? Well, seeing as how I’m pretty much down for anything, I decided to take on this momentous task in a series of posts.

So, without further ado, I give you 10 stereotypes about Bethany.

oldman

1. The average age is a million years old.

I make this assumption based on the fact that I’ve been to Bethany a total of twice, and both times it seemed as if I was the youngest person around. And I’ve never really run into anyone my age who claims to be from there. This only furthers the notion that only old folks live there. Bethany may be the unofficial retirement community of the OKC metro.

Monday Morning Tweets: Emily Sutton made it rain at Blake Shelton’s house

Well, we’ve had another week happen, which means I’ve brought more tweets for you. So many things happened. Like, the fair has been going on, and we had our first really “fall-like” day. So, basically your feed was blowing up with corn dog pictures and so many people talking about how great the weather is. Too bad it’s just officially gotten too cold. Yeah, I said it. Anything below 80 and I can’t function. But, let’s remember, I’m basically descended from Jawas. Anyway, all your tweets are after the jump!

Stereotypes About Your City: Midwest City

From time to time, we here at The Lost Ogle like to make fun of different cities in Oklahoma. It’s fun. (You should hear what we have to say about Gotebo.) But this got us to thinking. Why not do a series about various stereotypes that we all associate with different cities in Oklahoma? Well, seeing as how I’m pretty much down for anything, I decided to take on this momentous task in a series of posts.

So, without further ado, I give you five stereotypes about Midwest City.

cage-fighting

1. You think MMA is a viable career option.

Who wants to work all day at a boring 9-5 sort of job when you could have a job where really sketchy dudes literally destroy you? That UFC octagon seems to be pretty glamorous to the folks from Midwest City, whether you want to get in it or just date someone who does. I’m not sure what it says about the overly masculine men folk from Midwest City that they seem so ready to don some tight short shorts and put other dudes in a rear naked choke, but just know that I’m giving them the side eye.
