  • City manager and visitors bureau director thank voters

    It is budget time and there are many difficult decisions that must be made on behalf of this great City of Claremore. As my staff and I have been aggressively taking on this challenge I wanted to take a moment and say Thank You to all the dedicated employees of this city and Thank You to all the citizens who are loyal to keeping their sales tax spending here at home.

  • Police Chief: Cumming provided positive impact on city’s quality of life

    Dear Editor,
    I am writing this letter with the intent to express appreciation to a person who has had a positive impact on the quality of life in the City of Claremore.
    Jennifer Cummings, the Animal Control Supervisor for the City of Claremore, recently informed me that she has chosen to resign from her employment with the City effective April 8th, 2011. Jennifer began her employment with the City’s Animal Shelter in September 2005. Since that time she has implemented many important programs and services to our City.

  • Letter to the editor: What about others? 1/14/11

    Dear Editor,
    At the risk of sounding argumentative, let me sound off on a current event that appears, at least to me, to be somewhat of a double standard.
    This week we have seen several pictures as well as at length video of a memorial service for victims of the recent gunman shooting rampage in Tucson, Arizona.

  • CCVB works behind the scenes

    Dear Editor,
    I would like to thank Tom Pool, Chairman of the Claremore Heritage Museum Committee, for his letter to you on Friday, December 10. In his message, Tom referenced the Claremore Convention & Visitors Bureau (CCVB) as a “tourist information center.” I would like to share the Mission and Vision of the Claremore Convention & Visitors Bureau and provide some clarification as it pertains to our organization.

    I have been very blessed over the last 20 years. Linda and I have a wonderful family, a thriving business and we live in Claremore, a wonderful small town that has been so good to us. In no small part, our success has been attributed to many of the more than 800 employees that we have had at the Hammett House. They have been our “extended family” for these incredible years.
