  • Biggs thankful for 2013, looks forward to next legislative session

    It is the time of year when the family holiday trips are in the works, Thanksgiving dinners are planned and Christmas shopping is started.  Time seems to be flying by as we wrap up 2013.   It is a time to be thankful and count our blessing.  As we reflect on the past year, many are looking forward to what 2014 holds.  While the upcoming session does not start until February, December 13 is the deadline day for Representatives to file the bills they want to address during the upcoming session.

  • Theodore Roosevelt visits Osawatomie for the Common Good

    Republican President Theodore Roosevelt packed his bags and left the left the White House in March 1909.  Seven and a half years as the country’s chief executive had hampered his ability to enjoy the great outdoors.  That is not to say that he had been locked in the presidential mansion, but his term had been marred by bumpy economic times extracting focus and attention that otherwise would have been allocated to the enjoyment of those expanses of natural scenery and wildlife habitat that have become his legacy.

  • Cole spies roadblocks, delays and barriers

    Since its passage and throughout the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, nothing has gone as promised, planned or expected by President Obama. Instead, the entire country has watched him try to dodge or make excuses for every barricade or bump along the road. Each roadblock has led Americans to seriously question the president’s ability to lead and lowered confidence in his promises.

  • Walmart story brings out annoying commentaries

    This week we broke a story about a local gay couple who were asked to leave the Chickasha Walmart due to their sexual orientation. Since equality for homosexuals is the major civil rights issue of our time, I had an inkling that this piece may gain some notoriety. It did, and after reviewing its aggregation on sites across the country I decided to address a few key misconceptions commenters continue to bring up.

  • The Spirit of the BB-48 for the Common Good

    It was September 2, 1945 and each of the 280 Allied Warships that had accompanied the USS Missouri into Tokyo Bay for the formal signing of the Japanese Instrument of Surrender, had its own story of heroism and perseverance. Assembled shoulder to shoulder on the decks of American ships were soldiers and sailors of every rank, of every race, from every state of the Union.

  • Shelter plans marching forward

    It has been an interesting time surrounding the Take Shelter Oklahoma petition drive recently.  Attorney General Scott Pruitt submitted revised language to the petition’s ballot title which our committee felt was biased and politically motivated.  David Slane, an attorney in the Oklahoma City area and OKC Fox News legal analyst, is volunteering to assist in our effort.  The A.G. has five business days to submit an intent letter for modifications, but he waited seven days to notify that he was taking this action.  Between the prejudiced language and his missing the deadline, we feel confident the Oklahoma Supreme Court will keep things fair and balanced.  We also hope this will be resolved quickly as every effort they exert to fight this slows down the collection of signatures by our volunteers and accomplishes their goal of defeating this by any means possible.
