Editor, Daily Press:
There is good news from my doctor. I am off my blood pressure medication! Because of the 28-Day Wellness Challenge, I have been encouraged to change my old eating and exercise habits, become more educated, have a plan for my personal health goals, and I can truthfully see and feel the difference as I go about my busy daily life. I got my money’s worth. I am excited.
I worked with a clinical nutritionist to learn about plant-based nutrition and what power-packed sessions we have had. But the study is not quite over. Soon I will see my final bloodwork results.
My class has had 59 participants. However, the general public can participate in a free program to learn good nutrition at a noon meeting on the third Saturday of each month, in the Tahlequah City Hospital cafeteria. The lunch is prepared by the hospital chefs. We eat well. The nutritionist has been using plant-based nutrition to benefit himself, his co-workers, and his patients for more than a year. He educates physicians and nurses, and he talks to clubs and civic groups – that’s how we met.
Congratulations to those 59 participants in the Wellness Challenge. Now, the rest of you, keep your ears open. It will change your life. Stay calm and eat plants!

Dave Thomas needs to be sure he is uttering facts, not claims, before he prays.
In defense of the 2nd
There are four reasons why I am against a mandated background check to purchase a weapon. The first is how I read the Second Amendment: “...shall not be infringed..” means that Congress does not have any authority over “arms.” I do not believe a body of fallible men and women should have that kind of authority.

Now we learn that not only have Northwest Arkansas forces successfully weaseled another study of Oklahoma’s
Foot patrol needed here
Folks are putting in [the Press] their pride for the police department. If all was so fine, why did we get a new chief?
Kudos to Daily Press
I just want to let you know how impressed I am with the professionalism displayed by Tahlequah Daily Press Managing Editor Kim Poindexter during a disturbing incident I witnessed Monday, April 1.
In defense of cops
One of my pet peeves is people talking about something as if it’s fact when they don’t have a clue what they’re talking about. In response to Phyllis Wilfong’s letter to the editor, let me set the record straight.
CN to be commended
I have to applaud Cherokee Nation’s investment in health care.
In appreciation of cops
Wow, maybe we should start dictating to our police force where, when, what time, what type of food, and with whom they should be eating! More often than not, co-workers are often seen lunching together. Why should law enforcement be looked upon any differently?
The unfriendly streets
I have lived in the Tahlequah area since 1994, and since 2009, within the city limits of Tahlequah. Since 2011, I have begun running in town, and since 2012, also started bicycling in town.
Coming full circle
When I was a child growing up in Tahlequah, the Indian children were looked down on. The “White” kids made fun of their names and accents.
