What do we really want from our schools?
The battle rages with the outcome still in doubt.
The past is healing, now what?
Remember, forgiveness is a process. It will take a while as you regulrly look back at your deep hurts and see your partner as weak and fallible, and separate what he/she did from who he/she is.
Pay now or pay later
I don’t remember the product being advertised, but there was a commercial on television several years ago that really stuck with me. The punch line was “You can pay me now or you can pay me later,” with the implication that you can pay some now or a lot more later. I think of that when I keep a piece of machinery past its useful life and spend more on repairs than a new one would cost.

Letter to the Editor: Laws regarding feral hogs should be updated
To the Editor:
Do you believe you have the right to protect your property?

Common education should not be compared to football
In a recent column in The Oklahoman, Paul Risser, former chancellor of Oklahoma’s higher education system, compared common education in Oklahoma to football. Perhaps he may be forgiven for doing so based on his immediate background in higher education, but his sports analogy does not hold up under closer examination at the non-collegiate level, particularly as it relates to whether or not our students compete well against those in other countries.
Editorial: Barresi refuses OEA invitation, calls attention to war
Janet Barresi, Oklahoma Department of Education superintendent, last week refused an invitation to meet with a group that represents approximately 35,000 of Oklahoma’s public educators. In doing so, she has called attention to what is becoming the worst kept secret in Oklahoma public education.
