Editor, Daily Press:
I just have a word or two to all of your people who have been whining because you lost your job at Sequoyah High School. I look back to when the ex-chief took over. He did the same thing, but he said he had a better-educated superintendent and principal, because he wanted the school to be modern like the regular white man’s schools. There wasn’t anything wrong with the principal we had. It was Leroy [Qualls]. He’s pretty good and tried to do all the right things for an Indian boarding school.
Everyone has their way and it’s not all pleasing to everyone. Speaking of pleasing, whoever is behind all the trouble that has been caused for our boys should be ashamed of themselves. Our boys have worked hard to earn the district championship. To have a bunch of “superior” idiots tell them they can’t be champ is bull.
You can bet some of the past administrators and elected officials had these kids in camp, and it was paid for by the school. But now that they are not head honchos, it’s time to complain and hurt 12 boys and the whole team that have poured their hearts into this football season.
The OSSAA hurt the school by taking one gold ball away and now they say it was a mistake. They didn’t want to be proved wrong, even when every school in Oklahoma has done something to send kids to camp to get more training to improve, so they may stand a chance at a better and higher education. But, no, the OSSAA has got to shut down the top winning boys in the district. It just so happens they are Indians. Why don’t they let these boys play ball and enjoy the gift God gave them: ability to be a family and work together?
Sequoyah is a fine school. My children went there and I worked there for years. I loved it and I loved the kids. They are greatm and you know any kid can get a good education if they want it. I believe the kids at Sequoyah are doing just that. Just leave that alone and let them learn and grow to be productive citizens. They are our future leaders. God bless them and love them. I do. I try to forgive the adults who want to cause trouble for our children. Shame on you. You know who you are.

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.
STIR incensed at letters
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.
