The chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party announced Thursday he will not seek re-election at the state convention in April. Clinton Key, who has served as party chairman since 1989, said it is time for someone else to have to opportunity to lead the GOP in Oklahoma for the next two years and beyond. "Over the last five years a tremendous number of people worked to help our party and its candidates," Key said. "I will always value the concern that the people of Oklahoma have for their government."

In last month's elections, the GOP gained five seats in the state House of Representatives, giving the Republican caucus the highest number since 1929. The newly elected governor, lieutenant governor and labor commissioner are all Republicans. Also, the GOP controls both U.S. Senate seats and five of the state's six U.S. House seats. Cleanup of Toxic Waste Under Way in Catoosa

CATOOSA _ The Environmental Protection Agency has started a $1.2 million toxic waste cleanup effort at an abandoned industrial site in Catoosa. About 800 55-gallon drums at the site of TRI Containers Inc. contain unknown contents, EPA officials said. They were alerted to possible problems when vandals broke into the site in November 1993 and some of the drums began to leak. Authorities also found a sludge-filled vat, six storage tanks and unlined surface impoundments.

The contents of the containers will be tested to determine the proper disposal method, said John J. Martin, a coordinator with the EPA's emergency response branch. The cleanup is expected to take from four to six months, he said. Halliburton Laying Off 29 Employees

DUNCAN _ Halliburton Energy Services in Duncan announced Thursday it was laying off 29 employees, mostly in manufacturing.

Jimmy C. Cooper, vice president of administration, more layoffs will occur by the end of the month. He said the layoffs are a result of reduced need for new equipment in the field. "They are telling us they do not need as much capital equipment to run their business in the field, so there's a reduced demand on the plant to put out new equipment," Cooper said.
