  • LETTER: President: OneNet saves UCO money

    To the Editor:
    Discussion continues in The Edmond Sun publications regarding upgrading and consolidating information technology resources in state government. While I respect the viewpoint that has been expressed so far, certain facts should be taken into consideration that directly affect the University of Central Oklahoma and the 17,000 students we serve.

  • Bond debt not an unpardonable sin

    Is Oklahoma bond indebtedness for Oklahoma infrastructure an unpardonable sin? No! Rep. Jason Murphey wrote a good op ed dealing with what he bemoans as oppressive state bond debt. He calculates each Oklahoman owes $649 in state debt. He and the rest of the ultra-fiscal conservatives can’t bring themselves to support bonds to pay for the state Capitol repairs, building a medical examiner’s office or other legitimate capital expenditures. So using his logic I decided to apply that thinking to my personal and business life.

  • Senate bill potentially denies women’s rights

    Once again, our state Legislature is moving toward passage of another bill that will not stand up to a court challenge because it is contrary to federal law. It also follows the pattern of many of these failed laws in that it attempts to limit the choices women have in our state.

  • LETTER: Assault weapons not needed

    To the Editor:
    The shock and sorrow regarding the Newtown, Conn., school shootings permeates this household, as it does our nation. We are retired educators who deeply relate to the fallen staff, their students and their students’ families.

  • LETTER: 13-year-old gives to others

    To the Editor:
    It is that time of year again. Time for Christmas hype and commercialism and children asking for everything under the sun. It’s also that time of year where, I hope, people think of others and dig a little deeper to spread some Christmas cheer.

  • LETTER: All may not be as it seems

    To the Editor:
    Predictions of the end of the world or the end of civilization as we know it. I’m not talking about the ones made by an obscure Mayan calendar, but the types of catastrophes expected as a result of the re-election of President Obama. These predictions, many by people and news media in Oklahoma, were perceived as truth by the majority of Oklahomans. These beliefs seem to be supported by the recent election results. Oklahomans voted against President Obama by a 2-to-1 margin; and I suspect that in Edmond an even larger margin against his re-election.
