Summertime Gourmet Means Fresh, Local Food

Story by Natalie Mikles found on

Michael Fusco’s summer cooking philosophy is simple. In the summer, he says, it’s better to be a good cook than a great chef.

“In winter, you add all of these aromatics and things to bring out the flavor. But in the summer, you don’t want to overcook or overdo anything,” he said.

When we visited him at his Michael Fusco’s Riverside Grill recently, the kitchen was full of vegetables so fresh they still had signs of the garden.

Fusco had just been to Conrad Farms in Bixby that morning to pick up squash, onions, cucumbers, purple hull peas and tomatoes. There, he lets what’s fresh be his guide for the restaurant’s chalkboard menu. Arkansas blueberries looked good, so he picked up some to combine with a house-made dulce de leche.

Purple hull peas, though considered country fare, seem gourmet with Fusco’s touch.

For Fusco, summer isn’t the time to use exotic ingredients or complicated cooking methods.

“This food is so good on its own,” he said. “We do very little to it. We’re just bringing out the natural flavor.”

That, he said, is the new definition of gourmet.

“Fresh, local, seasonal – that’s gourmet,” he said.

FAST Forward Releases Draft Transit Plan For The Tulsa Area

Story found on

TULSA, Oklahoma — INCOG is unveiling a draft of the Tulsa area’s first ever regional transit system plan Thursday.

Labeled ‘Fast Forward’, the plan identifies and prioritizes Tulsa’s highest traffic areas.

Since January, INCOG has been seeking input from residents in Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Bixby, Jenks, Sand Springs and Owasso.

Officials say a plan is being developed to find a solution with transit to help the area remain competitive.

In a news release, INCOG says restoring and enhancing Tulsa’s existing transit service are key recommendations of the Regional Transit System Plan released Thursday.

The draft plan, which is available for public review and comments until August 22, also identifies seven priority corridors for further analysis.

This analysis will include reviewing transit options such as rail, bus rapid transit, streetcar and bus.

“Based on a rigorous technical review of current data and extensive valuable input from the public over the last seven months, we have developed a transit plan which we believe will bring the Tulsa region up to speed with other mid-size U.S. cities,” said James Wagner, Transportation Projects Coordinator for INCOG. “The recommendations in the draft plan are very deliberate and achievable.  They are the first steps in creating an effective transit system for the region.”

Immediate improvements to the current bus system recommended by the plan include…

High Water Demand for Bixby Area


Primary Contact:       Doug Enevoldsen, City Manager, (918) 366-4430

Bea Aamodt, Public Works Director, (918) 366-4430


“The high water demand due to sustained high temperatures is causing pressure fluctuations in our distribution system.  Therefore, while water reserves for Bixby are at a sustainable level, continued demand is making it increasingly difficult to keep them that way.

At this time households and neighborhood associations are being asked by the Bixby Public Works Authority to voluntarily scale back on watering lawns and landscaping to help alleviate the pressure fluctuations.  The City of Bixby has shut down the Splash Pad Facilities and limiting irrigation activities to further this effort.”
