GUTHRIE – The session is adjourned. It ended with a presentation of the official state seal to the city of Guthrie, where it will stay for a couple days.
Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett admitted that his city was accused of stealing the state seal from Guthrie when
Oklahoma City became the state capital. This reminds him that things change, he said.
“In 1907, Oklahoma City was accused of stealing the state seal from Guthrie,” he said. “In 2007, we are being accused of stealing a basketball team from Seattle.”
Lawmakers are now meeting for a brief reception before heading outside for the Native American Sunset Ceremony. More to come from there.
