SapulpaJobs.com - hire local talent and keep your employer dollars in town.

ShopSapulpa.com - stay updated with the latest news and deals from Sapulpa’s businesses. (Also check out the popular Facebook Group)

Has anyone heard anything about tax free weekend? It says online it’s the 7,8,&9. But are they still doing it. With all going on
Why is your editor making vile and racist statements like this? Clearly she has lost her way with her moral compass. Disgrace! I question her continued employment!
Can someone explain why this woman is on the payroll and is racist towards natives.
Next, I would like to see Sapulpa Times stop people from name calling and bullying. Facts are one thing. The comments on the posts from last nights meeting are rude and hateful. Please consider stopping people from such things. Many fb groups have rules for rude, hateful, and bullying comments. The reporting last night was spot on and unbiased. The people who stood up last night and said their peace should not have people ridiculing them. This is a form of intimidation. Allowing this could cause a previous speaker to not put themselves out there. It, also, affects people who may come forward to speak.
I want to apologize to the people who had their speaking at the council last night mentioned here for the rude and hateful comments you have been receiving. I am sorry! Regardless of your point of view, you put forth your time to attend the meeting and stand alone at a podium with a microphone and state your opinion. That is not an easy task! I wholeheartedly thank you!
Does anyone know what happen at the Sapulpa laundry mat by KFC earlier today. Fire trucks were there
Nice one sapulpa times! Such a amazing employee you have their. Nothing like a grammar nazi attacking people trying to find out about the missing young lady.
It was a very big mistake to NOT renew park hosts Tod and Mary due to a person who was breaking the Sapulpa rules about Sahoma/Pretty Water fishing permits. Don't have city statues you will not enforce. I moved away 20 years ago because of poor city management.
