Tuesday’s McAlester election is all about money.
It’s the end of an era
News that the McAlester News-Capital’s press would be shutting down Oct. 3 was like a kick to the gut. Several weeks later, the news still stings; ever more so for the men and women we will no longer see traipsing through the newsroom every morning, or smiling as they bring us those first copies of the daily paper, still wet with ink.
That era ends next week.
Justice rules in records debate
McAlester’s own state Supreme Court justice recently went against the majority on the high court, which consists of some of the sharpest legal minds in Oklahoma. We couldn’t be more proud.

Our view: Court ruling boosts Constitution, not Westboro
This week’s high court ruling allowing protesters to loudly proclaim messages of hate and retribution during the funerals of fallen soldiers is hard to swallow.
Editorial: If not now, when?
The MPS bond election is only a couple of days away now. And it certainly goes without saying — but I will — the News-Capital supports a YES vote.
How about a non-rally?
As we are all aware the group from Kansas that came to protest the funeral of a local American hero are planning to return to McAlester, this time to picket City Hall, McAlester High School, EOSC, and our local military recruitment offices.
