  • It's so hot out

    Jim Scribner|Jul 17, 2022

    I think I'm going to start studying for my final exams just in case all the heat and fires are because God has had all the fun he can stand with our corrupt, wicked world. Sometimes the simplest way isn't the best way. Someone lost a round bale of hay on Santa Fe Street, and it was spread out pretty good. They had a tractor getting the big part, but two fellas were using pitchforks on the rest. Wanting to help, I stopped and suggested it might be easier to bring the cows to the hay than picking...

  • Big tech is steamrolling America's newspapers

    Brett Wesner, Chair, National Newspaper Association|Jul 17, 2022

    Google and Facebook have enormous economic and political power in society – especially over the news industry. Many ask if they have played a role in the misinformation that erodes our free press and plagues our democracy. Google and Facebook have a duopoly of the distribution of digital news content, which drives people to their platforms where they make money. The platforms hoard critical data and use clever tactics, like reframing stories in rich previews, to keep users on their sites – sip...

  • CoffeeTime

    Andy and Renie Bowman|Jul 17, 2022

    Like so many of us, I have a lot of my family and friends’ birthdates in my phone’s calendar, and I have it set to notify me when a loved one’s birthday is on the horizon. I prefer to tell myself that “I have so many family members now, and combined with all my friends, I can’t possibly remember all those birthdates anymore.” But truthfully, I’m probably just getting too lazy and too dependent upon my phone reminding me. I tend to take the easy way out when it is available. Recently, it...

  • New law reduces taxes for businesses, cuts support for jobless Oklahomans

    Lionel Ramos, Oklahoma Watch|Jul 17, 2022

    Republican legislators passed a law lowering taxes for businesses, but critics say it comes at the expense of jobless Oklahomans. The law, which passed along party lines in both the House and the Senate, cuts the maximum number of weeks that unemployed Oklahomans can receive financial support from 26 to 16 starting Jan. 1. Right now, Oklahoma offers the same number of weeks in unemployment benefits as 40 other states. But when House Bill 1933 takes effect, only four states will offer fewer weeks of emergency income to those looking for a job....
