Commentary

Cal Hobson

News

Brendan Hoover
Sooner Tea Party co-founder Al Gerhart has a surprising new ally in his defense against state blackmail charges stemming from a threatening email he sent to a state senator.

Bridging the gap


CFN

Gazette staff
One of our state’s most conservative voices (heck, one of the nation’s) has softened his tone. Sen. Jim Inhofe said recently his “attitude” toward his across-the-aisle Senate peers changed as a result of sympathy he received after the death of his son, Perry Inhofe, 52, who died in a plane crash in November.
