If your primary knowledge of the musical ?Oklahoma!? is based on the 1955 movie version, expand your horizon and go see the new production at the Glendale Centre Theatre. This production is definitely more than just ?OK? and highly recommended. Framed around the simple love story of Curly (Robert Standley) and Laurey (Heather Lundstedt), theirs is only one of many instances where a lack of communication sets up situations that result in confusion. On the light side, Ado Annie (Ann Myers)

Both my husband and I attended John Burroughs High School. He was very proud to have played football for the Indians. He is from a very fine Choctaw family out of Eastern Oklahoma. I asked him recently how he felt about all this uproar over having an Indian mascot. He was upset. He felt honored to be a Burroughs Brave, as we called players. We both have extensive ties with family who have spent their lives teaching and living with various tribes. They have told us of the heartbreak of seeing the alcohol, drug and suicide rates increasing on the reservations.

Native Americans have been mistreated and discriminated against throughout the history of this country. I know this from personal experience, growing up on an Indian reservation in Oklahoma during the '30s and '40s. Now, 60 years later, comments have bee made to the City Council that remind me of the deplorable way my family was treated while I was growing up. When I was young, being an Indian was the worst thing you could be. A dog had it better.

Campbell Hall secured final bragging rights, however, surviving a torrid run by the Pioneers late in regulation to earn a 91-86 overtime victory.
