Ardmore, OK – One of the more significant pieces of legislation in U.S. history has been in effect for a few weeks. The "Economic Rescue Plan" was passed to rescue lenders and gives the Federal Reserve authority to borrow between 700 to 850 billion dollars. 4th District U.S. Representative Tom Cole from Oklahoma voted for the legislation both times it came through the house.
Oklahoma City, OK – Tewanna Edwards remembers her late great-uncle as a gentle old man who fed her raisins and laughed as she grimaced while eating them.
She had no idea as a child that the 6-foot-3 Choctaw Indian was one of the first American Indian code talkers.
He was among 18 original Choctaw code talkers who never lived to see public recognition of their war deeds. Legislation signed by President Bush last week authorizes congressional medals to be issued to the Choctaw Nation and family members.
