OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ State officials are expecting plenty of interest in their plan to sell off the Lake Texoma Lodge and Chickasaw Pointe golf course.

A total of 14 inquiries have been made on the land. Two of them came from within the state and the rest are from elsewhere.

The inquiries were made after a $350-million deal to buy and develop the land fell through in May.

A proposal with New York developer J. Pierre Gagne to build a resort complex collapsed in May when Gagne asked for an extension and did not pay earnest money that was requested by state officials.

Gagne had planned a convention center, new golf courses, high-end lakefront homes and more.
