Emeril Lagasse, the national TV personality and best-selling author, came to Dillard’s in Penn Square Mall to greet Oklahomans and was a huge hit. While he was here, he did a demonstration for the audience members, showing them how they could “kick it up a notch during the holidays.”

After the state Board of Education stalled their hiring, staffers for new Superintendent Janet Barresi will be paid by private funds.


Clifton Adcock
Meanwhile, Barresi asked Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to look into possible Open Meetings Act violations by the board, alleging the push-back appeared orchestrated and pre-planned. State law prohibits a quorum of a public body to discuss public business without a posted agenda.

Don’t count out the tea party

The average Oklahoman aligns more with the tea party philosophy of limited government and lower taxes.


Kyle D. Loveless
In the recent Oklahoma City Council elections, all of the candidates aligned with the tea party movement lost. Critics, news pieces and bloggers across the metro and state were using these losses as a setback or high-water mark of how much influence the tea party folks have in Oklahoma.

A more perfect union

Letters to the Editor

Jim Ammerman
Jason Reese (Commentary, “Can it happen here?,” March 3, Oklahoma Gazette) starts out his argument with an opinion stated as fact. Reese states that “the only viable answer” is to convert defined benefit pensions to defined contribution pensions, and that “collective bargaining rights” are “the root of the problem.”
