Morton poor choice for award

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

I was disappointed to read recently that NSU had designated Neil Morton as a Sequoyah Fellow. Unfortunately, Morton is not Cherokee in the truest sense, and has mostly coasted by on reputation the past few years, without actually accomplishing anything substantial to benefit our young people.

It is simply not appropriate to mention him in the same breath as a great leader like Wilma Mankiller, the only other Sequoyah Fellow.

What to you think of a state Legislature proposal to forbid cities from raising the minimum wage? Choose the closest to your opinion.

The federal government should set the minimum wage across the board.
States should be allowed to raise their minimum wages, but not cities.
Both states and cities should be allowed to raise their minimum wages.
Cities should be allowed to raise their mimum wages, but not states.
There should be no minimum wage at all.
Undecided.
