Independent oil and gas producers and the state Farm Bureau are joining a federal lawsuit on the side of the state Tax Commission. The commission was sued by the Osage Indian Nation claiming all of Osage county is the tribe's reservation so any tribal member who works for the nation and lives in Osage county is exempt from state income taxes. The Oklahoma Conservation Commission broke ground in Garfield County today on a new water shed dam, the first new structure of its kind to be built in the U.S. with federal stimulus funds. It is part of a new effort to reduce chronic flooding problems in the area. Despite pending lawsuits, work has begun to remove dirt and tear out the old passenger platforms that used to be home to the Union Station Rail Yard in Oklahoma City. A new 10 lane I-40 link is being built in its place so the old Crosstown Expressway can be torn down. A live interview tonight with the President of the OIPA to talk about what is going on in Oklahoma's energy business. Mike Terry will address issues including the dumping of millions of gallons of Canadian oil that has been driving down the price of Oklahoma Crude. It's a dog's life. Imagine being tied up with a short chain and forced to live in a small cage. The Human Society wants to see new laws banning the practice of chaining dogs up. The society is sponsoring a week long contest where contestants live for a week on a chain with only a small dog house for shelter. The winner gets a new car.
