Working Hard for Oklahoma

We are in the midst of the holiday season. It’s one of my favorite times of the year because it means getting together with family. The First Gentleman and I have six children between us, and at times it can be hectic keeping up with everything that is planned in our family. But I wouldn’t trade those busy times for anything.

LOOK BACK, LOOK WEST

By LeRoy Jones

As my friend Ray Garton was fond of saying, “Time is going by so fast, I must be having two birthdays a year.” It seems that I have just settled into the habit of writing the year as 2015 and now we have about come to the changing time again and will have to program our minds to use the date 2016 .

A Word From The Superintendent

By Brad Overton

Pearl Harbor Day

By LeRoy Jones

Do you remember where you were on December 7, 1941? Most Americans living then will have that date etched into their memory for the remainder of their life. December 7 was on Sunday that year, and as was usually the case on Sunday morning, I was seated in front of the radio to listen to the reading of the comics, or “funny papers” as we called them then.

Savvy Senior

By Jim Miller

Dear Savvy Senior, I had dental insurance through my work for many years but lost it when I retired. Where can retirees find affordable dental care? Need a Dentist   
 
Dear Need, Finding affordable dental care can be challenging for seniors living on a tight budget. Most retirees lose their dental insurance after leaving the workplace, and original Medicare does not cover cleaning, fillings or dentures.

THANKSGIVING 2015

By LeRoy Jones

At this time each year I give pause to ponder the things for which I am thankful. I certainly could conjure some thanks this year if there was less on television that overwhelms us with politics when the nominating conventions of both major parties is still eight months away. I can say next year at this time that I’m glad it’s over. We have already been bombarded night and day, through the television media and just about any other means you can find and the election is still almost a year away.

My Point Of View

By Zonelle Cox Rainbolt

People around the world watched in horror Friday as Islamic terrorists took the lives of a large number of people in Paris, injuring hundreds more. These were people the terrorists did not know and who had done them no harm. Seemingly, the only reason they were targeted for death was so the murderers could make some kind of “statement” that would grab the world’s attention.

A Word From The Superintendent

By Brad Overton

Last week the Student Council of Cordell High School presented its annual Veterans Day Assembly. This assembly has become a very important event. In our fast paced and self serving society, it is important that we stop to honor and reflect on the sacrifices of so many.
