Collective Bargaining Not Worth It for Teachers

Oklahoma should follow the example of other states that are moving away from collective bargaining in K-12 education. It’s not just bad for kids, it’s bad for teachers.

Opportunities Make America Great

People around the world dream of coming to America and having a better life. Since our founding as a nation, millions have come here and found a better life than they left behind.

He graduated from Istanbul Medical School, but came to America for additional medical training. He has been with the Cleveland Clinic since 2005.

Letter to the Editor

Enjoying Things That are Given to Us

Dear Editor,

A good friend said he was going to make me a new belt because my old one was worn out. When I picked it up and started to pay him he said, “No charge, it is a gift to you.” I was so proud of the belt that I wore it to town.
