Editor, Daily Press:
I just checked out gas prices here in Tahlequah and find that costs at local stations run from $3.599 to $3.659 per gallon. I was in Tulsa yesterday and paid $3.349 per gallon.
Is anyone other than me noting that gasoline here in Tahlequah is, and has been for the last year, running $.25 to $.35 per gallon more here in town than in Tulsa (and, in some instances, Muskogee)? I am flat-out accusing local station owners of collusion and conspiring to fix prices at artificially high prices that are totally unjustified.
A year ago, the cost of oil was around $80 per barrel and gasoline was selling at $2.50 per gallon. Currently, the price of a barrel of oil is back to $80, but the cost of a gallon of gas here in Tahlequah is more than $1 per gallon higher. Why? Isn’t it high time we insist on local station owners coming forward and identifying themselves and explaining these huge gas price discrepancies?
I think they owe the residents of Tahlequah a reasonable explanation, and in the absence of such an explanation, we should (whenever and wherever possible) engage in a boycott of their businesses until such time as they get their prices in line.

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.

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.
