Interested in Attending a U.S. Service Academy?

By Markwayne Mullin

 

One of the greatest honors I have as a member of Congress is nominating individuals to our country’s well-respected service academies. Attending a U.S. service academy is an invaluable experience that shapes young men and women into strong leaders and military officers. Nominations are available for the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. Our country’s service academies prepare young people to serve as commissioned officers in various branches of the armed forces

A Closer Look at Oklahoma’s State Questions

SQ794- “Marsy’s Law” Crime Victim Rights Amendment

By Karen Maple

State Question 794, referred to as “Marsy’s Law” has met controversy in numerous states, including Oklahoma. The revision to the Constitution Amendments is a nationwide drive of California billionaire Henry Nichols. The one thing everyone can agree on is protecting the rights of victims is a worthy cause; however, the issue is deciding whether or not Marsy’s Law is necessary to achieve that or whether the passing of the state question is even necessary – and in the opinion of many of those who oppose the passing of this law, could it negatively affect victims and the judicial procedures already in place?

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.

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.
