State Sen. Kay Floyd, Imam Imad Enchassi and the ACLU’s Ryan Kiesel discuss the state and federal threats to our civil liberties at Feb. 23 Oklahoma Observer Newsmakers event at Full Circle Books in Oklahoma City.
Arnold Hamilton became editor of The Observer in September 2006. Previously, he served nearly two decades as the Dallas Morning News’ Oklahoma Bureau chief. He also covered government and politics for the San Jose Mercury News, the Dallas Times Herald, the Tulsa Tribune and the Oklahoma Journal.
With the pandemic still raging, The Observer's monthly Newsmakers Series went virtual in November! Editor Arnold Hamilton [above], Observer columnist+former Senate President Pro Tem Cal Hobson and more than three dozen of our closest friends jumped online Nov. 12 for a first-ever Zoom Newsmakers to discuss the 2020 elections and look ahead to the 2021 Legislature. Newsmakers will return to our regular, in-person, second-Thursday-of-the-month meetings at OKC's Full Circle Books as soon as it's safe to gather. In the meantime, be sure to mask up and drop by Full Circle for the best selection of books and friendliest staff around! Our next Newsmakers will be Jan. 14, 2021 from 6-7 p.m., either virtually via Zoom or in-person at Full Circle Books. For Newsmakers updates, including our lineup of special guests, check out each month's Observer, follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and sign up for our monthly e-newsletters by sending your name and email address to email@example.com. A special thanks, as always, to the Observer Advisory Board's Dr. Bruce Prescott for getting Newsmakers uploaded to Vimeo.
