I am writing this letter to express my immense gratitude for the care I have received, and continue to receive from the staff at W.W. Hastings Hospital. I visited their Emergency Room on a Saturday morning, with what I thought was a gallbladder attack. Dr. Franklin, the physician on duty, felt it was more than just a gallbladder attack and requested I be sent to Tulsa for further evaluation and testing. Sensing my hesitance, Dr. Franklin assured me it was for the best, to be certain what exactly we were dealing with. To my surprise, I found I was already into stage three of a very rare cancer, primary peritoneal cancer. Due to Dr. Franklin’s diligence and persistence in making certain I received the care I needed, I was able to start chemotherapy treatments immediately, and have now been classified in remission.
During my chemotherapy treatments, it became routine to visit W.W.H. emergency department due to illness caused by chemo, most frequently dehydration. I have been more than impressed with the care I have received. My oncologist has even commented how pleasantly surprised he was at how they took the initiative and went above and beyond what we ever could have expected.
I truly feel that W.W.H. emergency department played a huge role in my battle with cancer. During what has been the most difficult trial in my life thus far, they were a blessing to have on my side. I am very grateful to each and every member of their staff, who so often do not get the appreciation they truly deserve.

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.

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.
