Get Outsiders to Run Mayor's Office don't think the voters of Tulsa voted for a new jail the have an outside company combat, and dmanoricoune same goes for the urban renewal and sports centers. I don't think we voted for a tax increase so outside companies can get rich. Maybe we should en have an outside company come in and take over the mayor's office, Lost Plane Raises Security Concerns If the United States loses an aircraft and can't find it in nine days, I'm a little concerned about our borders. Fairness Rhetoric Clouds Smoking Issue I see. Congress is going a tax on cigarettes to pay for smoke-related diseases.

Let me get this straight. That means those that drive the Broken Arrow pay for Broken Arrow potholes only, those who drive Interstate 44 pay for the bridge over Sheridan at 31st Street only, heart patients are going to pay for the heart machines at the hospital only. Oh, come on folks! Let's get real. We live in a society of good and bad and we all pay for each other. Gratitude Owed WWII Bomber Pilots Seeing the B-17 aluminum overcast at the Riverside airport brought back many memories of standing on the ground and seeing streams.

of bombers headed toward Europe. We a tremendous amount to gratitude to the men who flew in them and to those who fought on the ground and in the sea. Calling 911 Over Trespassing Oversteps Did Phil Mulkins in his column a few days ago actually suggest that people call 911 when children are trespassing on their property? Is that an appropriate use of 911? I can't believe I haven't seen anything else in the paper addressing this since his column. Skelly Stadium Once Belonged to TPS I've particularly enjoyed Tulsa's Hundred Years History headlines in the opaper each day. In the April 12 I'm reading the one about W.G.

Skelly and, it mentions in there that he was the chief fund-raiser for the Skelly Stadium at TU. He was the chief fund-raiser for Skelly stadium, but it was for Tulsa Public Schools. It didn't belong to TU for a number of years. Hogue Judged by His Peers, Unfortunately What I can't believe is that this Judge Hogue got released without having to pay any bond. This is another situation where the lawyers and the politicians in this town are taking care of their own.

He's a former judge, and so they are going to take care of him. I wouldn't be surprised it he gets off of this thing without doing any time or having to pay any kind of punitive damages of any kind. Pushing Generational Warfare Do you know where your tax dollars go? Thirty -six percent of every American's tax dollar will go to Social Security Medicare. My generation will never see that money. Fifteen percent will go to the interest on the national debt which has been accumulated by current and proceeding generations.

So, my generation is spending fifty-one percent of its tax dollars in no benefits. Grossly unfair. I call foul. Suspended Kids Go to Outlying Schools For the issue involving the child that got suspended in Tulsa school system. shouldn't have much to worry about because the Tulsa children that They, get suspended in the Tulsa school system end up in outreach areas such as Glenpool and Jenks and then they don't ever leave.

Farrakhan's Venom Too Much to Stomach For the first time in many, many years, I just turned off "Meet the Press." I will not allow Louis Farrakhan to spread hate where my children can listen to it. Sewer Bills Reflect Business Favoritism So car wash operators will get smaller sewer bills and residents get an increase. That's par for the course. Businesses get all the breaks, and the rest of us get the shaft. It's Hard to Tell Good Guys From Bad Times sure are confusing.

It seems to be getting more and more difficult to tell the good guys apart from the bad guys. No wonder our kids are growing up with such loose ideals about how they should live. President Keating? It'll Never Happen Regarding the canticle by George Will on Gov. Keating's chance presidency: When the other states find out how he runs the state of Oklahoma, he wouldn't get 10 votes. I don't know if he could get 10 votes in Tulsa.

Chelsea Has No Business Opening Mouth Chelsea Clinton went to Africa and told African children, "We're not optimistic about our future in America, and we know you're not about yours either." What is this? My wife and hated the fact that Chelsea went on taxpayer dollars to Africa in the first place, let alone her mother. But what is she doing spreading this message over there? Branch Rickey Deserves Recognition In all the laudatory remarks about Jackie Robinson's entrance into professional baseball, there is no longer any mention of Branch Rickey, the general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers who actually drew up the contract and offered it to Robinson on his own initiative. He is the one who should be praised along with Robinson. Editor's note: See story on B-1. Why Can't Newt Have Defense Fund? How is it even possible that a legal defense fund can set up for Bill and Hillary Clinton which has over $2.5 million in it already, and yet this type of fund cannot be set up for Newt Gingrich's $300,000 charge? Correction A Monday Tulsa World story described Volunteens founder Lam Le as a former Simon Estes Scholar.

"Jack" Koessier who helped build number from your driver's license and adding the Oklahoma Tax Commission driver number to it costs $5 plus $1 for the long-distance call to Oklahoma City. "You simply come in and request it, we make the call to the commission to obtain the number, you pose for a picture and we issue you a new driver's license with the new number on it. The original expiration, date of the license remains the same," Exiting Highway Traffic Yields Concerning the eastbound Interstate 44 Lewis Avenue exit ramp and the yield sign that is just west of Utica Avenue on the 51st access road: Who yields? Is the high-speed traffic exiting Skelly Drive supposed to yield to the slowermoving 51st Street traffic, or is the slower traffic supposed to yield to the exiting traffic? D.J.M., Tulsa. The traffic exiting the highway, is supposed to obey the posted exit ramp limit as does the traffic on 51st Street with its own posted limit. There should not be any "high-speed traffic" either exiting the highway or driving eastbound on 51st Street.

Sgt. Pat Calhoun of the Tulsa Police Department's Uniform Division Southwest said: "At that point, the adjoining street, which would be the exit ramp, would have to yield to the existing street -which would be 51st Street. The exit ramp, once it leaves the highway, becomes an adjoining lane entering 51st Street, an existing through street, traffic the ramp would have to yield to traffic on 51st Street."

True, but the typical person who can be tracked through a driver's license number is an average resident who lives at the same address he had when his driver's license was issued (or at an address he has reported to the Oklahoma Tax Commission), who earns an honest living but is not very good at keeping a checkbook balanced not the kind of person who needs punishment from the Bogus Checks Restitution Program. Danna Haworth, director of the Tulsa County district attorney's Restitution Program (596-4815), mation we can access through number is usually through the ment.
