I won't move my BOA account to Arvest. Arvest Bank is no friend of protecting Oklahoma's scenic rivers. I remember an Arvest Bank officials (Rogers I think) formally opposed Oklahoma's successful effort to adopt a phosphorus limit for the Illinois River watershed. Arvest Bank is too close to the polluting poultry industry.
