Run to Remember, marathon runners remember why OKC runs

Tax break could be coming for Oklahoma’s richest

OKLAHOMA CITY – The richest residents of Oklahoma may be getting a new tax break.

It is a victory for Governor Mary Fallin, who supported a cut in the top income tax rate.

Senate Bill 1247 would reduce the top income tax rate from 5.25 percent to 5 percent if state revenue projections are greater than projections in December 2014.

“Our state has seen economic growth and record revenues due to our competitive income tax policies and pro-business environment,” said Rep. Leslie Osborn. “This measure allows Oklahomans greater control over their hard-earned money. They will either spend or invest those dollars and further strengthen our economy.”

The tax cut measure will be conditional on improvement to state revenues.

After a cold training season, marathon runners ready for Memorial Marathon

OKLAHOMA CITY – On Sunday, more than 20,000 people will descend on downtown Oklahoma City for the Memorial Marathon.

Many have been training for months.

One group started during the chilly month of January.

Since then, they have been watching the miles add up.

One runner says this is a good time to celebrate life.

“It’s not a downer, the marathon itself, it really helps us celebrate life and remember that we’re alive.”

Many of the runners powered through the coldest days when they did not want to leave the warmth of their home.

The runners say that the marathon and the training itself can both be an emotional time.
