Tulsa World column on importance of open records

Mark your calendar - Sunshine Week is March 10-16.
Earlier this month the Tulsa World went to court to protect its access to certain records in a local crime story. Managing Editor Susan Ellerbach writes, "My purpose in writing this column is not to talk about this very public case, but rather to answer the questions of why the Tulsa World — at a time when budgets in the news business are extremely tight — would spend good money on a legal fight over the openness of public records."
OPA EVP Mark Thomas is quoted several times.
