UPDATE: City Approves 4th & final agreement to bring to life The Uncommon Ground Park! 

Hi everyone, hope you all are doing well. For those of you who are out of town, have fun! And for those of you who are hanging out in town this next weekend, be sure to stop by Downtown Edmond Saturday night from 6-10 pm for Heard on Hurd, which is always a fun time! Check out our article on the June event here!  

With all that is going on Nationally and within our state politically, I am hoping you are all enjoying your time with family & friends aside from it all.

First thing this week, on Monday at 5:30 pm at City Hall, the City Council will determine by vote whether or not to approve the 4th and final agreement with the French Family Foundation and the Edmond Fine Arts Institute which will determine whether or not the Uncommon Ground Park will move forward or not. The first 3 agreements were approved Tuesday May 28th, with a 4-1 vote, with Mayor Davis abstaining from voting.

Aside from the unending positive affect this park would have on Edmond residents and visitors, City employees are at the front of the line in determining their opinions as to whether this project will be financially viable with regard to operational costs, maintenance and programming costs. Here’s to hoping these City employees can come to an agreement with all parties involved.

Touch a Truck turns into Meet the Fleet?

Everyone who knows me knows I had to begrudgingly trademark my feature section used for advertising/marketing purposes in 2011 “Shop Edmond”.

It’s always been available for the City to use for public service announcements, and I know the City would never use the term for advertising or marketing their own paid advertisers.

My 2011 trademark was forced by an unscrupulous out of state marketer, for profit, whose pr gal chided another local now out of print newspaper to use as their feature section, and the few still around who knew her and her pr gal know this, and that’s all I have to say about that. The pr gal is still around Edmond influencing younger female networkers, and I can only imagine what has been told to them. It was never meant to front the City or any other local business, just to protect my intellectual property I had worked hard to build

Today I was perusing All Things Edmond FB Group, and I saw a comment from a current City Councilman Tom Robins, stating that our beloved Touch a Truck event held by the City of Edmond to raise funds for the Hope Center, had to rename the event to Meet the Fleet because someone trademarked Touch a Truck and then proceeded to tell the City to pay them $500 if the City wanted to continue to use the term for their 2024 event which happened in conjunction with the City of Edmond Open House this year on May 11th. C’mon. I hope the City continues to call the event Touch a Truck after having done so for at least a couple of decades.
