Tuesday, Oct. 8: GOOD EVENING!

TAHLEQUAH — And the wealth of news in Wednesday's Press continues:

• Teddye Snell talked to State Rep. Mike Brown about a legislative move to privatize the state's pension system. Teddye also has an online exclusive with the fine print.

• Sean Rowley heard about the "new economy" during the fifth annual Northeast Oklahoma Regional Alliance summit.

We also have stories on Halloween fun at the Murrell Home and Tenkiller State Park; upcoming blood drives; honors for a bluetick hound owner and his master; and a Habitat for Humanity dollhouse auction, as well as Gene Ruth Brumback's column and weekly reports from our church correspondents.
