Thanksgiving this year is officially November 27th but it is a concept we should celebrate daily!

Hastings Standards Not Family Friendly Anymore – Bartians Beware!

Hastings XXX entertainment

Our local Hastings has dropped the ball. It is no longer a safe place to take your kids to look at books. Apparently they’ve decided to display nude posters in with all the others and witchcraft is on the end caps to give it prominence.

If you are a concerned citizen who cares about what is accessible to our youth please call and respectfully let them know this is NOT ok. Store number is 918.335.0831.

Special thanks to Joy Molina Collins for the heads up and photo.  If you get a response you would like to share with others, please do so in the comments here or in our Washington County Republican Grassroots Group on facebook here >>>

 

Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.  

Proverbs 14:34

Duane Crumbacher for Senate District 48 near Midwest City Oklahoma – Get Involved and Make a Difference!

Sometimes you meet people and you know immediately that they are special. Duane is one of those people. At any event, he is the one making sure everything is taken care of and doing whatever is needed to make it all work. I know how he loves and cares for his family by the way he talks about them and by the way he orders his life priorities – at least from my distant perspective. We visited briefly recently about his race and I wanted to do a post for my friends to let them know about his campaign and hopefully so that each of you will figure out some way to help put this wonderful gentleman in office.

He was unopposed in the primary and now faces opposition in the general election. District 48 is in central Oklahoma near Midwest City.  Please consider what you might do to help if you live anywhere near the area.  Please consider a donation in any case. His website is duanecrumbacher.com.  His pushcards are below and offer great insight into the issues and his commonsense approach to life and liberty.  Get involved and help make a difference because many hands make light work!

Randy Barnett is ready to go to work for you the taxpayer, protecting, preserving, and defending your rights. He knows the constitution and has always stood for you as a veteran and in the private sector too.

I wish I lived in his district and could actually cast a vote for him. The next best thing I can do is make sure all my friends know about him and remember to vote for him on Tuesday, June 24th.

HD10 covers parts of Washington County and Osage County and all of Nowata County.  There is a map of the district on his website.

Here is a vote reminder message from Randy Barnett himself.  I call him the taxpayer’s best friend in HD10.

Smart Meters for Everyone?! And a Little Rate Increase Too — Public & Planning Meetings Announced

I recently got this card in the mail. Did you?

PSO Return Address Card June 2014

PSO Card June 2014

PSO Rate Increase Meeting Tue Jun 17 2014 AEP PSO (pdf version of card downloadable here)

Here is the text version of card (below):

PSO is requesting an increase in rates of approximately $45 million of which advanced metering infrastructure is $7 million. For a Residential customer using 1,000 kWh/month, approval of PSO’s proposal would result in a total bill increase of approximately 4.31%, or around $3.97 per month.

A hearing on this matter will be held at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission located at the Jim Thorpe Office Builidng, 2101 N. Lincoln Boulevard, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in Courtroom 301 beginning on the 25th day of June, 2014, at 10:30 AM. There will be a period set aside for public comment during the proceedings.

It was received from:

AEP / Public Servie Company of Oklahoma

A unit of American Electric Power

Public Service Company of Oklahoma
PO Box 201
Tulsa, OK 74119

Website for AEP/PSO

————————–

In preparation for the meeting on June 25th in OKC, Gary Kilpatrick has announced a meeting on June 19th @ 6:30 PM to get us all up to speed on the issues. Gary and I are in the Bartlesville area.  However, this should be happening all over the state.  So if you cannot join us please consider doing something in your area!  His invitation is below:
smart-meter

A PSO rate hearing before the Oklahoma Corporation Commission is scheduled for June 25th. A part of this rate hearing involves PSO’s request to install smart meters and the smart grid throughout their entire Oklahoma service area including Bartlesville.

Time is short to educate the citizens of Washington County to the downside of smart meters.

Therefore we are holding a Smart Meter Information Meeting this coming Thursday, June 19th at 6:30 pm in the Cherokee/Delaware Room at Tri County Technology Center, 6101 SE Nowata Road, Bartlesville, OK 74006.

 

Since this meeting is being called on short notice I would appreciate each of you spreading the word to those in your sphere of influence.

Gary

————————-

I have spoken with Gary since receiving his invitation and found out that he has invited Joe Esposito to be there and add his considerable expertise to the mix. Joe is from the Owasso area and has been working on this issue for several years.  His website is Stop Smart Meters in Oklahoma.  I am aware of his work through OK-SAFE.  I am sure this will be a valuable meeting and hopefully lay the groundwork for positive input at the state level on June 25th.  Please be there if you can and bring a friend!
