Town hall location changed: Wednesday's 11:30 a.m. town hall with Gov. Mary Fallin and members of her Cabinet has been moved to the Oklahoma State University-Tulsa Auditorium. It was previously scheduled for the adjoining Room 150. The event is free and open to the public, and a light lunch will be served.
LWV voter registration: Tulsa's League of Women Voters has scheduled several voter registration events leading up to the registration deadline on Oct. 12. See tulsaworld.com/leaguevoters or call 918-747-7933 for more.
Here are dates and locations for the events:

State parties spar: State Republican and Democratic party leaders took jabs at each other's candidates last week, with Republicans trying to divert attention from 2nd Congressional District nominee Markwayne Mullin and onto what state Chairman Matt Pinnell called Democratic "gimmies," and Democrats trying to score points on GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney's "47 percent" remark. Early in the week, before Romney's comments became known, Pinnell sent out a release that essentially said Democrats were buying votes with food stamps and health-care coverage at the expense of taxpayers.
- Naturalization ceremony, Angus Acres School, 4401 S. 129th West Ave., Sand Springs, 11 a.m.
A few days later, state Democratic Chairman Wallace Collins asked rhetorically if Pinnell, Mullin and 1st District candidate Jim Bridenstine "agree that 47 percent of the national population does not matter?"
