OETA Contract

``Veto overrides save OETA, tribal regalia rights
Janelle Stecklein | CNHI Oklahoma 3 hrs ago

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma lawmakers overrode 13 of the governor’s
vetoes on Thursday, including those dealing with tribal regalia and
the state’s lone public television station.

Lawmakers noted they had a smorgasbord of bills to choose from, as
Gov. Kevin Stitt had been unusually heavy-handed with his vetoes,
already rejecting 46 pieces of legislation as of Thursday morning.

Legislators were able to garner enough support in both chambers to
override 13 of those vetoes, turning the legislation into law. After
their vetoes, among other things, Oklahomans will have:

• Continued access to OETA, the state’s public broadcaster, which was
at risk of closure after Stitt questioned the long-term strategic
value of the station.

• A state name, image and likeness (NIL) law for collegiate athletes
and universities.

• New protections in law for Native students who want to wear tribal
regalia at public school graduation ceremonies.

• University of Kansas license plates.

• A new makeup of the state’s turnpike authority oversight board.

Many other pieces of legislation made it partway through the veto
process. Lawmakers theoretically could consider addition overrides on
the final day of session Friday as they pass legislation finalizing
the state’s budget.

State Sen. Casey Murdock, R-Felt, said two of his bills were victims
of the political process. He was pushing to overturn Stitt’s vetoes
related to invasive species and protective orders for children.

“It’s not a fun task to override a governor’s veto,” Murdock said. “I
don’t take any pleasure in having to make this vote. I do it solemnly,
but it needed to happen.”

He said having to correct the mistakes made by another Republican is
not fun.

“Usually in the end, we make the right decisions here,” he said.

Choctaw Nation Chief Gary Batton celebrated the Legislature’s veto
override of Senate Bill 429, which enshrines into law Native students’
right to wear tribal regalia at graduation ceremonies.

“This measure should not have been controversial,” he said in a
statement. “It has no costs for schools and expands students’ rights
to honor their heritage. We look forward to seeing members of our
tribe and others honor their heritage at important moments in their

State Rep. Trish Ranson, D-Stillwater, said 46 Stitt vetoes this year
seems like a lot, but some were related to budget fights and were
“another example of the dysfunctional supermajority that (we have)
going on.”

House legislators Thursday let stand most of the 20 vetoes Stitt made
on fellow Republicans’ bills after he became frustrated by their lack
of action on his tax and education priorities.

State Rep. Kevin McDugle, R-Broken Arrow, said the governor understood
a lot of his vetoes related to the budget fight would be overridden,
but they left House members confused over whether Stitt thought the
legislation was sound policy.

“The difficult thing when that’s done in this process is, you really
don’t know what he really wanted to override and what he didn’t,”
McDugle said. “So it makes it a little bit difficult to try and
decipher that when there’s so many of them.”

{related: note that appointed by Stitt, Supt. Ryan Walters, who has
been making a lot of enemies, even among Republicans, by his extremist
views and axions, ex-officio sits on the OETA board. Since Stitt`s
veto, we noticed that OETA stepped up its self-promotion without
directly confronting Stitt -- gh}

``Education video prompts outrage, tears among educators
Janelle Stecklein | CNHI Oklahoma 6 hrs ago


OKLAHOMA CITY — Teachers fled a state meeting in tears and stood in a
hallway shaking and crying after the state superintendent Thursday,
May 25, 2023, unveiled a “propaganda” video that educators viewed as a
threat to their safety and livelihoods.

Superintendent Ryan Walters’ team later sent the media a link to the
full video and posted it to the state Department of Education website,
but then swiftly barred everyone from viewing it by setting it to
private. Walters’ team promised to send a “fresh version,” but over
two hours later, the video remained unavailable.

State education officials also aired an abridged version of the
several minutes-long video at the monthly state Board of Education
meeting, but inexplicably muted the audio for those trying to watch
the at-capacity meeting remotely.

The video features Fox News interviews of Walters discussing teachers
and teacher unions interspersed with a randomly selected mix of
National Education Association speaker clips. It included interviews
with people, whom educators didn’t think were from Oklahoma, and talk
of “The Young Adult Experience,” as well as blurred graphic and
pornographic images.

It ends with the message: “We can save education. Our kids are
counting on it.”

“There were tears,” said Allyson Helm, an Oklahoma City Public Schools
teacher who attended the meeting. “People were shaking and devastated
by these remarks. And it is nothing less than propaganda. It reminds
me of a wartime propaganda video.”

Helm, a registered Republican voter, said State Department of
Education officials tried to draw an insulting correlation between
pedophiles and pornography and educators, she said.

“I taught anatomy and physiology and high school biology for 10 years,
and I didn’t talk about sex as much as these people at the State
Department (of Education) do,” she said.

She also said Walters appeared to be attempting to indoctrinate the
public to his views.

Walters did not respond to a request for comment about whether it was
appropriate to use state resources to make the video or if it was
intended to make educators and parents feel unsafe.

Ashley Daly, a parent of a Tulsa Public Schools first-grader, said the
video was “very upsetting.”

“It made me worry that there are some people who are already feeling
upset, (and) it’ll radicalize them and maybe make them do something
really dangerous in our schools,” she said. “Our schools aren’t full
of the awful people that Ryan Walters makes them sound like they

She said it’s “terrifying as a parent” that Walters is using rhetoric
that could cause someone to shoot children or teachers, when he’s
supposed to be caring for and protecting them.

Daly, who attended the public meeting, said 90% of Oklahomans send
their children to public schools, and if parents really thought
teachers were “terrorists or pedophiles,” they wouldn’t send their
children there.

Jami Jackson-Cole, a Duncan Public Schools teacher, said she started
crying part way through the video because her first thought was “this
is fixin’ to get someone killed.” She said the video was beyond
outrageous and indicated that Walters is “coming after teachers.”

“There’s no doubt in my mind that if you’re not falling right along in
line with everything he says, he’s coming to get ya,” said
Jackson-Cole. “And we can’t have that. We are in a teacher shortage
right now.”

She was so upset she left the meeting room, then encountered more
teachers outside, also crying. They told her, “It is putting a target
on us.”

“There’s enough crazy people in this world,” Jackson-Cole said. “We
don’t need that. So it was beyond vile and reproach. Just horrible.”

State Rep. Mark McBride, R-Moore, said he watched a little bit of the
video after people contacted him outraged, but hadn’t been able to
finish it. Walters already had set it to private.

“You just can’t go around calling people terrorists and things like
that,” he said. “I think that (with) this conduct we’re losing that
professionalism in all of this. The hatred, the fear mongering that
goes along with all this is just not the way we should be doing

Greg Hardison, CA, comments: ``Judging by this list of issues, I would
surmise this Gov. Stitt either has the brains of a tennis ball, or in
my untrained opinion, has some serious personal problems to work out,
preferably somewhere other than the state's constituency. How and why
do these lousy excuses for human beings continue to be elected to
power?`` (via gh, Enid, WOR)

lo-fi, down in a barrel? After skipping the news, further notes: 0312,

increasing ACI from 11780 Brasil; usual heavy modulation but lo-fi
audio. After news, 2212 `Weekly Analysis`, about the elexion and

Erdogan can solve Turkey`s economic and other problems [so why hasn`t
he, already?]. Besides music breaks: 2224-2226 multi-lingual ID filler
reel. 2235 `Feeling Supreme/The Healing Spring` about irritable bowel
syndrome, a repeat until 2241. 2251 `Did You Know That`, too accented

today? Nothing: since May 24. Just before at 2359 May 26, the FKB
gospel huxter claimed he is also on WWRB 3215! A station which has
failed to exist for 2 or 3 years now. I`ll check the WBCQ frequencies
into NH SDR, hoping it`s accurately calibrated: At 0012: 5130 -15 Hz =
5129.985; 6160 -66 Hz = 6159.934; 7490 -73 Hz = 7489.927; 3265+ OFF.
