Goodner's cow moooved to new 'pasture'

DUNCAN — The Goodner’s cow has long been a fixture in Duncan at the southeast corner of U.S. Highway 81 and Elk Avenue, where the old Goodner’s Steakhouse was until it burned down years ago. Now that the property has been rezoned and faces new life as a possible retail structure, the bull had to find greener pastures. It was moved in recent days to its new home, north of the 81/Elk Avenue location. It is now at Elk Plaza Shopping Center at the Goodner’s Smokehouse stand and has already attracted several shouts of exclamation from young children who have noticed its “mooo-ving.”

  • Governor, state Legislature have misplaced priorities

    If the Oklahoma State Legislators and our Governor spent less time interfering in women’s rights to manage their bodies, creating ways to lay more taxes and fees on the middle class in order to generate more tax breaks which benefit only the wealthy while also conceiving methods with which to fill Oklahoma’s for-profit prisons, they would be doing all of us a favor. Instead, why not work to enhance funding for our schools and wage increases for all school employees? While reforming the state’s educational budget, why don’t they approve wage increases for our Oklahoma State Troopers and enlarge their Academy to insure qualified individuals are ready to fill the upcoming vacancies as many of the older force retire?

  • Self government key to keeping politicians in check

    Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that federal campaign laws that limit the total amount of money donors can give to political parties, committees and candidates for federal office (U.S. House, Senate, and President) was unconstitutional. The ruling will not increase the current $2,600 limit on how much a donor can give to a federal candidate in each primary and general election or the $32,400 limit that can go to a national party committee. Those limits are still in place.  The ruling will instead remove the limit on how many candidates/committees to which a donor can contribute.
