Creationist legislation dishonest to the core


Letters to the Editor

David Grow
Greg Horton’s article “Evolution alternatives” (News, Feb. 2, Oklahoma Gazette) exposes the damage creationist bills — House Bill 1001 by state Rep. Mike Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City; HB 1551 by Rep. Sally Kern, R-OKC; and SB 554 by Sen. Josh Brecheen, R-Coalgate — will do to Oklahoma.

Commentary

Marilyn Davidson
Our public schools are the most important resource in our community — they truly should be the heart and soul of every community. As parents, we should care about what happens in our schools, and as taxpayers, we should be able to access schools for community use.

Dead or alive


CFN

Gazette staff
As the state legislative session winds down, some lawmakers are working to resuscitate proposals that already died. That can be promising news for Oklahomans who fancy schoolteachers packing heat, and more bad news for Oklahomans who don’t like the idea of distracted drivers zooming along the highway.

Allergy sufferers give thanks


Letters to the Editor

Carmen Johnson
I applaud our state representatives for rejecting legislation that would have blocked everyday, law-abiding citizens’ affordable access to cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine. Not long ago, state legislators were considering implementing burdensome legislation to require a doctor’s prescription for over-the-counter cold and allergy medicines that many Oklahomans, myself included, depend on.
