Apparently, adequate fact checking is against the religion of Enid News-aint-got-nothin-to-do-with-it & Eagle and I've dug up irrefutable proof of that while researching the Enid Public Schools bond issue boondoggle. As I find more proof, those proofs will be posted here later, as I encounter them, so by all means check back periodically.
In this case, what's clearly apparent is that the Enid Eagle's idea of "investigative reporting" excludes reading its own damn paper. Further worthy of note is the City's practice of passing bond issues, realizing "savings", then diverting money from other bonds WITHOUT A PUBLIC VOTE, to pet projects that weren't approved of when the bonds they've raided were voted on.
To be fair, the track record that Oklahoma has, as a state, regarding science, has been traditionally squirrelly.
