  • Letter to the editor: Proud of Justice Taylor

    Editor:
    This is in regards to a story that was in your newspaper a while back. It was about Oklahoma Chief Justice Steven Taylor. He was being sworn in as the new chief justice of Oklahoma. Apparently, they usually have festivities to go with this honor, which apparently meant spending quite a bit of money.

  • Letter to the editor: McAlester's blue trash cans must (not) go

    A few days ago a letter appeared on the opinion page that at first intrigued me; then, after some thought, I agree with it totally. The big, blue trash containers must go; they are an eyesore.

  • Letter to the Editor: Shocking news

    I have read your article on McAlester News-Capital about Alverson execution. I am a barrister here in Athens, Greece and as you may know the death sentence has been abolished in Western Europe since the 70s. So news of executions taking place in other countries is considered more or less shocking for us here in the Continent.

  • Letter to the Editor: Cruel, unhuman and unconstitutional

    It is very sad that you must write about executions in Oklahoma. The death penalty is cruel, unhuman, unconstitutional and very unusual punishment. It is time to abolish any kind of execution worldwide as soon as possible.

  • Renegar Letter to the Editor: Needs have not decreased

    I am writing to encourage a yes vote on the January 11, 2011 school bond issues for McAlester Public Schools. My business is located in this school district and my ad valorem taxes will increase if the bond issue is passed, but I believe the time is here for us to take an important step to provide modern facilities for the children and youth of McAlester.
