Pet Corner

By De Young Trainer, K-9 Kampus

When dogs get over excited they jump, lick, and sometimes nip or bite. This is out of control behavior, and in some cases dangerous.

We as pet owners need to take charge of every situation when it comes to our dog.

Savvy Senior

By Jim Miller

Dear Savvy Senior,

Can you provide any advice on choosing a Medicare supplemental policy to help cover things outside of Medicare? I’ll be 65 in a few months and could use some assistance.

Looking for Help Dear Looking,

If you plan to enroll in original Medicare, getting a supplemental policy (also known as Medigap insurance) too is a smart idea because it will help pay for things that aren’t covered by Medicare like copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. Here are some tips to help you choose an appropriate plan.

One For The Oklahoma History Books

By Max Nichols

Take a trip to Choctaw County in southeast Oklahoma and you can find Fort Towson, a military post established in 1824 by the U.S. Army 7th Infantry.

Drive to Alfalfa County in northern Oklahoma and you can find the Great Salt Plains, an 11,000-acre geographical phenomenon of saline crystals that became part of the Cherokee Nation in 1835.

A Word From The Superintendent

By Brad Overton

As the current Oklahoma Legislative Session enters its fourth week, our state leaders face some very tough decisions. In tough financial times, a “lasertype- focus” on the real issues at hand is a must.

Cordell Schools received notice this past week that due to the first revenue failure of the year, our school district will not receive approximately $60,000 in state aid.

Working Hard for Oklahoma

By Governor Mary Fallin

Earlier this month, I introduced a plan to stabilize our state by beginning true, meaningful budget reforms and modernizing our state’s tax laws. It cuts some taxes and raises others.

To help our families, I proposed eliminating the state sales tax on groceries, which is expected to result in annual savings of $350 to $676 for a family of four.

House Report

By State Representative Todd Russ

A bill that would allow the Oklahoma Lottery Commission to offer larger payouts to improve lottery sales is headed for the House after it passed Appropriations and Budget Committee on Monday. The premise is that this will increase contributions to education.

I am completely against this measure, House Bill 1837. This is just a subtle step in enabling people to develop a dangerous lifelong gambling addiction.

A Word From The Superintendent

By Brad Overton

This past week has been a trying time within Cordell Schools. Sometimes tragedy makes us look inward and reexamine our thoughts and beliefs. In observing how the faculty of Cordell Schools conducted themselves this past week, I am more proud than ever of our school family.

Savvy Senior

By Jim Miller

Dear Savvy Senior,
What are the IRS income tax filing requirements for retirees this tax season? My income dropped way down when I retired last year in 2016, so I’m wondering if I need to even file a tax return this year.

One For The Oklahoma History Books

By Max Nichols

Since the prestatehood days of Oklahoma Territory, public buildings have fostered a sense of community, binding people together and playing significant roles in the history of Oklahoma.

These remarkable public efforts go back as far as April 1898 with the construction of the Chickasaw National Capitol.
