A Closer Look at Oklahoma’s State Questions

SQ793- Allow Optometrists & Opticians to Operate in Retail Stores

By Karen Maple

State Question 793 is one of five state questions coming up for vote on the Oklahoma November ballot. The question has raised a fair amount of controversy, particularly between larger retail stores like Walmart and business owners – especially optometrists.

The state question, if passed, would allow optometrist and opticians to operate in retail stores. It would also allow the state Legislature to pass regulations to provide limitations or restrict the performance of surgical procedures in retail establishments. They could also limit the number of office locations optometrists can practice in, maintain license requirements for optometrists, require a separate room or area for optometrist offices located in retail businesses, and impose health and safety standards for optical services and goods.

Out of the Darkness – Into the Light

By Ivy Story

While suicide may be difficult to talk about, it is happening. Suicide rates are rising and it is a community’s job to support each other in dark times and to offer a safe place for those who may be struggling. Amy Ortloff is the president of OC3 (Our Community Cares Coalition). Ortloff is an advocate for suicide prevention and is working with Madill Schools to provide help to students. She explains that each week she goes to the high school student body, passes out snacks, and makes eye contact with students as she hands them their snack and asks about their day or how they are doing. Ortloff does the same thing once a month for local middle school students.

MMS Walk-A-Thon Tuesday

The Madill Middle School Sixth through Eighth graders in the noncompetitive P.E. classes are walking to raise money for new basketball goals at William Ray Memorial Park. Coach Rand Rushing said, “We’re doing this because we use the park during P.E. class and especially during the summer.

The park is full of kids, and everyone who goes to the park deserves to have nice goals.” On Tuesday, Oct. 16, the classes will go to Madill City Lake and walk the track from 8:30 a.m. to about 11: a.m. Rushing said that the kids are needing sponsors who will pledge around $3 per mile. He also said flat donations will be accepted too. To make a donation or to sponsor a child, call Madill Middle School at 580-795-7373.

Socks for the Soul

By Ivy Story

Sockober is a clever combination of the word sock and October. The cause behind this clever name is touching and honorable. Sockober, of course, takes place during the month of October, the month that really starts to feel like fall. However, there are some out there who do not associate fall with leaves and pumpkin spice. They associate fall with a cold front. According to soulpancake.com, every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. Four years ago YouTube famous Kid President, Brad Montague, founded Sockober; and last year more than 10,000 schools, families, businesses, and churches participated.

Strong Beer Deliveries Arrive Soon

The first deliveries of strong beer and new beer brands that will be sold cold in grocery, convenience, and liquor stores on Oct. 1 have arrived at Oklahoma Beer Alliance distributor members across the state.

New beer distribution laws went into effect on Sept. 1, so beer distributors and retailers could have cold, strong beer available for the start of beer modernization.

“As the new strong beer brands and varieties arrive in Oklahoma, Prohibition-era laws are officially on their way out,” said Lisette Barnes, president of the Oklahoma Beer Alliance. “Soon, the way Oklahomans have been buying beer for the past 59 years will finally change, and Oklahomans will have more convenience and selection of the high-quality cold, strong beers that they have been demanding.”
