  • Old Will Rogers Library would add Triple Crown Museums to Claremore

    Dear Editor,
    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.

  • Residents speak out on old fire department building

    Dear Editor,
    I would like to speak on behalf of the Rogers County Historical Society in regard to the former library building, recently vacated by the Fire Administration. The land and the building both have a rich history worth preserving, and the Lynn Riggs Memorial Museum occupies a very small part of it. My family has felt for some time that it ought to be expanded and improved. The great playwright has been treated like a stepchild long enough.

  • What’s the deal with political signs?

    The Primary election has come and gone, and the City of Claremore Code Enforcement Office wishes it could say the same about all the political signs that came with it. The Code Enforcement Department has been down to one officer since the second officer transitioned to the City Clerk position in March. The position Sarah Sharp left vacant was only recently filled and our new officer will begin patrolling the streets next week.

  • LETTER: What’s the deal with the Missouri Street closing?

    Rogers County has requested that the City of Claremore close Missouri Street from 1st Street (southern border) to Patti Page (Northern Border) for the new County Courthouse project. Despite the perceived contention over the request, the City of Claremore is not opposed to doing this as long as the county is willing to assume the costs and due diligence of making it happen.
