News

Tim Farley

CFN

Gazette staff
How many make-believe cops can you name off the bat? Let’s see … there’s Sgt. Joe Friday, Dirty Harry, Axel Foley … oh, and John Doak. If the name of Oklahoma’s insurance commissioner doesn’t immediately strike fear among the criminal kind, it’s certainly not for lack of trying. Doak’s agency has bolstered its anti-fraud unit by spending more than $180,000 on police cars, pump-action shotguns, bulletproof vests and the like.

CFN

Gazette staff
Kids will be kids, as they say, but even the most adorable youngsters eventually need to learn how to eat with utensils and function without pooping themselves. That seems to be the subtext behind the Obama administration’s admonition to Oklahoma regarding the notion that somehow the redder-than-red state won’t have to abide by that mean ol’ Affordable Care Act.
