  • LETTER: More facts needed about SQ 766

    To the Editor:
    Oklahomans should demand the truth from the coalition supporting S.Q. 766.  Unfortunately, this coalition has decided to attack Oklahoma judges rather than address the devastating cuts S.Q. 766 imposes on public schools, career technology centers and county government.

  • LETTER: Reader wants trash ordinance enforced along I-35

    To the Editor:

  • Section 8 housing needs reform

    Section 8 housing is in need of tighter restrictions and reform. Our entitlement programs have become overused and abused to the point that it is costing us more than we ever realized. The Section 8 Reform, Responsibility and Accountability Act is something that all of us with the power to vote need to encourage our representatives in Congress to stand behind.

  • Behenna deserves second chance

    To the Editor:
    The paradox of war — death, sadness, love, happiness — is not by choice. The controversy over Lt. Michael Behenna’s imprisonment for actions while sacrificing his honor and duty during combat offers no explanation for what is right or wrong.
