This week at the ’Peake


CFN

Gazette staff
In the immortal words of Roseanne Roseannadanna (a onetime Saturday Night Live character by Gilda Radner, for you Millennials and younger), it’s always something. Last week’s hullaballoo surrounding Chesapeake Energy involved taxes, G-men, a Seattle newspaper’s provocative photo selection, and a compressed natural gas filling station controversy.

Hard more in Ardmore


CFN

Gazette staff
Something tells us Roy Johnson would’ve loved Fifty Shades of Grey, especially in the bathroom. That’s because the Healdton oilman and Ardmore newspaper publisher, who died in 1960, left behind a prized possession that novelist Larry McMurtry just unloaded for $2,750.

Getting fracked


CFN

Gazette staff
A movie that disparages dogs, if it were produced by a bunch of kitty cats, might have its objectivity called into question. Something similar is happening with a motion picture, set for release early next year, that purportedly highlights the evils of hydraulic fracturing, yet is heavily financed by a member of OPEC.

Saving oil


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
Not to discount Mickey McVay’s environmental education, but his “Kool-Aid’s global warming flavor” letter (Oct. 24, Oklahoma Gazette) has left a bad taste in my mouth. Reason being, he has previously identified himself in letters to the editor as having been an “oily,” as in one who works in the oil industry.

Over-regulating energy costs jobs


Commentary

Brian Bush
As state policymakers debate how to increase Oklahoma’s historically significant role in energy exploration and production, I hope that both state and federal officials will keep in mind the growing concern among voters regarding unnecessary federal regulations that are hamstringing our energy industry.
