We're getting a bell tower along the North Canadian Oklahoma River near the I-35 bridge, courtesy of Kerr-McGee.

The 50-foot tower will play, probably through some electronic means (some of us are holding out for real bells, but that gets pricey), the classic Westminster Chime theme (E-C-D-G; G-D-E-C) on the hour, from 9 am to 9 pm daily.

The tower, designed to look like the mast of a ship, will cost about $80,000, most of which will be funded by KMG.
