Historic Bethesda Church To Rally Against Potential Disruption of African-American Burial Ground - BethesdaMagazine.com

Monday, March 06, 2017

Church members want the board to table the discussion altogether until the assessment is completed.Rendering shows Equity One's plan for the Westwood Shopping Center, with town houses in the rear. Credit: Equity One.Matthews said his church once stood at the heart of a thriving settlement founded by African-Americans whose ancestors had left slavery and gone on to prosper. His engineer father and his mother, who managed a local restaurant, decided to raise their seven children in the neighborhood of several hundred residents. But their community was decimated in the 1950s when developers swooped in and claimed the neighborhood, he said.Matthews said his family was one of the last to leave, moving to Washington, D.C., in 1959.Now, the Westbard Sector Plan is bringing another round of changes to the area surrounding the church. Equity One has plans to construct 1.8 million square feet of retail, residential and commercial space, including rebuilding the Westwood Shopping Center.For church members, evaluating the area is just the beginning. Ultimately, they’d like the land designated as a sacred site and the creation of a museum dedicated to the community’s history, said Coleman-Adebayo.The planned march on Sunday will begin in front of the Baptist church.GwenWrightstatement - FINAL_2 9 17 by Bethany Rodgers on ScribdMacedonia Letter on Cemetery Feb 6 by Bethany Rodgers on Scribd...

Monday, March 06, 2017

Ray Cooper, whose restaurant has been a Tulsa-area dining staple for more than 30 years, died Monday.He was 65.A memorial service will be held at a later date, family members said. Mark Griffith Westwood Funeral Home handled arrangements.Cooper, at the time a Sapulpa firefighter, opened his original Billy Ray’s in 1984 at 3524 Southwest Blvd.It become a favorite dining spot among local residents and Route 66 travelers, who would catch the aroma of meats smoking in the big pit before they actually saw the restaurant.Cooper and his wife, Sherry, operated other restaurants across the area over the years. Currently there are two Billy Ray’s locations — the original and one in Broken Arrow.The Broken Arrow restaurant, now 6 years old, is run by Cooper’s daughter and son-in-law, Teresa and Tyler Roberts, and employs four other family members.“Nothing will change” at either restaurant, Tyler Roberts said. “We just want to carry on Billy Ray’s legacy.Born and raised in west Tulsa, Cooper was a graduate of Webster High School, where he played basketball.From there, he served in the Army, and would hold various jobs before becoming a firefighter.It was during a stint as a truck driver, Cooper said, that he first thought about opening a place to eat. He had a favorite restaurant and bar that he stopped at while on the road.“I thought, ‘Man, that’s what I want someday.’ “Later “it was my grandmother’s recipe that led me to barbecue,” he said.Cooper’s survivors include his wife, Sherry Cooper; four children, Doug Cooper, Melissa High, Cindy Turner and Teresa Roberts; nine grandchildren; his mother, Billie Cooper; nephew, Tony Cooper; and a brother, Don Cooper.Tim Stanley918-581-8385tim.stanley@tulsaworld.comTwitter: @timstanleyTW...
