Blame fellow liberals for America's mess
Liberals complain about the state of politics and the republic, but they created this situation themselves when they didn't show up at the ballot box.
EDITORIALS: College spending reform; Manning's not a whistleblower
College students and their families should be grateful President Obama elevated an issue that’s pressing pocketbooks across the country into the national discourse.
Bradley Manning is no Edward Snowden. And though both are accused of going public with secret government documents, the comparisons pretty much end there.
EDITORIALS: Working toward racial equality; Higher ed talks mired in politics
The next phase in achieving Martin Luther King’s dream must consist of a positive and constructive racial engagement in America. It will be achieved with honesty and humility, not finger pointing and denial.
It shouldn't be surprising that discussion of the affordability crisis that threatens higher ed got drowned, again, in politics and babble.
EDITORIALS: Back to school costs; Rodeo clown over-reaction
Store aisles are already crowded with parents and children shopping for back-to-school needs. We trust that teachers have been judicious about their requests in empathy with family finances. *** The most ridiculous story of the year — perhaps of the past several years — erupted last week when a rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair dared to ply his trade wearing a rubber mask of President Obama.
Weight Control without Hunger Foods
My office subscribes to several research-based nutrition publications and one article from Communicating Food for Health caught my attention carrying the above title.
Letter to the editor
I regularly mail packages at the McAlester and Krebs post offices. Here’s what I have observed:
The clerk will quickly weigh my package, affix the stamps, promise me a speedy delivery, and quote me the price.
Stop! Ask questions! The price I have been quoted is likely the most expensive. I have other options.
Readers should tell the clerks to remove those stamps and wait until you have decided the method of shipment.
You have the right to choose.
Letter to the Editor: Down Tree removed quickly
Recently, storms caused a part of our large tree in front to fall partly in our yard and in the street.
We called our municipal office and within an hour two crews from street and park departments were at our house. They had the tree moved, cut, shredded and loaded in their truck in 15 to 20 minutes.
A tribute to Warden Park Anderson, Oklahoma Highway Patrol
The staff at the McAlester News-Capital are to be congratulated for their excellent articles in the July 28, 2013, Sunday edition pertaining to the 1973 prison riot. The articles were interesting and informative.
Time to stockpile bermudagrass
Harvested forage costs are a large part of the production costs associated with cow-calf enterprises. For the first time in two years, producers in Pittsburg County will have enough bermudagrass to consider stockpiling some of the forage for winter feed.
Letter to the Editor
In the News-Capital of July 26, Wanda Jo Stapleton suggested that in order for men to purchase Viagra, they should have to go through a process similarly complex to what women do when wanting an abortion. Equality and fairness is good, right?
