The old Will Rogers Library, most recently vacated fire department administration building, nestled in the heart of Claremore, is the ideal site for a third Triple Crown of museums. Will Rogers Museum, J. M. Davis Museum and a Claremore museum devoted not only to Claremore’s famous luminaries, but also to thousands who have lived in this beautiful city and thousands more who will come.
Will Rogers, Lynn Riggs, Patty Page, Frank Robson, L C. Robbins, Tommy Lane, Stratton Taylor and a myriad of others have made this city a sparkling city with a great heritage.
In my view, the old Will Rogers Library could hardly be surpassed by the city by any other site. For decades Claremore students entered its halls, lounged leisurely on the rock wall surrounding it and have it formed in the psyche of the city.
Without a doubt, voluminous chronicles wait the opening of this wonderful Claremore cultural center. The story of Claremore, its schools, its athletic teams, its heros and the faces and stories of thousands of wonderful Claremore folk, past and present is calling for action.
It is abundantly obvious the old Will Rogers Library has a wonderful purpose as Claremore’s new triple crown museum.

Duty and rest rules for commercial pilots delayed
I’ve read, with interest, Andy Pasztor’s r article in the 02 August edition of the WSJ on the latest delay in the publication of a final rule to update the decades-old duty and rest rules for most commercial flight operations. It has to be a great challenge to take a complex technical issue and reduce it to understandable terms for a general readership.
