The new Sand Springs community center


Left to right: Me, Astronaut Bill Pogue, and Globetrotter Marques Haynes.

Last night was pretty interesting. A group of folks got invited to see the new Sand Springs Community Center prior to the September grand opening. The center's almost done, and looks really, really nice inside. Most of it is standard government officework -- nothing too fancy, but nice. Good carpet, standard desks, etc. But the lobby is really neat. There's a giant skylight and mobile made up of different-colored fabrics.

The gym is huge, with a state-of-the-art athletic floor. Up above the gym floor is an elevated walking track. Connecting the two is a stairwell inside a silo. The silo is, once again, translucent.

The centerpiece of the whole building is a mural of famous Sand Springs people. Charles Page, Bill Pogue, Bennie "The Wizard" Osborne, and Marques Haynes.

Osborne was a famous drag racer. Page founded the town. Haynes was a Globetrotter and the world's greatest dribbler. Pogue was the astronaut, and flew on Skylab 4.

Some people griped because there were no women on the mural. I can see that point. But also, as far as living Sand Springs legend (aside from Page), this was the only choice.

Here are some pictures of the whole shebang, including one of the first looks inside the center.
