We have had a new trash service for the past few years now. I would like to say how unhappy I am with this new "service." After the last ice storm we had, I placed a tree limb that was 3' long no bigger than an inch thick, on top of my trash can. The guys removed the limb off my trash can and put it on the ground and dumped the can. They already had it picked up why wouldn't the throw it in the truck? I am also having a difficult time getting an answer on where I need to put my trash for collection. I live in the middle of a block, do I have to drag my trash behind mine and my neighbors fence to the alley? Or do I put it at the street, like the people around the corner. Collection should be the same for every home! I also would like to know why this company doesn't do a bulk pickup, picking up at our homes, not us taking it to them? Not everybody has access to a pickup to haul it with. I also have a question for the city. Why wouldn't we look into accepting a bid that would provide residents with a cart. The carts that are provided do not blow all over town and is also harder for animals to get into. They look nicer as we drive through town, instead of looking at 6 trash cans and lids thrown in yards. Carts would also provide the city a chance to have more income, considering you would charge extra for the addtional cart(s) that homes may need. There is no way of doing that with the trash cans we have to use now. Isn't that the main reason went to an outside company, because we were losing money? Just some things for the city and residents to think about when this current contract is up.
Woman critical of
view on health care
Letter To Editor:
I lost the paper where the man from Chickasha was happy that poor people can now get their prescription paid.
What about the folk that are losing theirs? Because of the massive cost Caterpillar, John Deere & Vallero are stopping their workers and retirees from their prescriptions.
Would he buy a car and pay for four years before he could drive? I think not. Yet that is exactly what this health bill does. Most important of all, it is unconstitutional. Before you know it, we are going to be told what car to drive and what food to buy.
I feel like I am spitting in the wind. My daddy surely felt the same way in the 30’s when folk came to the house and he told them we would have to fight Germany again. He was laughed at just as some of you are laughing at me. Sadly daddy died April 23,1939 as a result of what he received in WW1. Not seeing our WW2. When Pearl Harbor was bombed, a sleeping giant was awakened. Sadly that giant now can only think of what they can get for themselves.

I am certain our President and the Democratic leadership are happy with their purchase of the rights of Americans. Our right to choose to provide health care for ourselves and our families as we see fit! THE PROBLEM IS THEY BOUGHT THOSE RIGHTS WITH OUR MONEY! They bribed with tax payer money, they promised jobs, they twisted arms, I would imagine they threaten loss of political support as well as financial support to party members, the PRESIDENT USED AIR FORCE ONE as a TAXI, to get the VOTES THEY WANTED! THE FACT THAT IT TOOK ALL OF THE ABOVE should make it very clear it was not good for US! The government is growing again! Now it will grow even bigger! They PROVED TO ME and I HOPE TO YOU. That THEY DO NOT CARE WHAT YOU OR I WANT THEM TO DO! They passed the bill? Poleski said it best when she said "pass it so we can figure what is in it"? Even the president does not know what is in it?
One thing we found out, they kept themselves out of the process?
THEY SAID "WE MUST DO THIS FOR THE GOOD OF THE NATION" STUPID!
WE PAY THEM!
However THE PARTY and an obsessed president IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WE ARE! WE HAVE NOW BEEN DECEIVED BY OUR EMPLOYEES (the so calledgovernment employees) INTO ALLOWING THEM TO START DECIDING WHAT RIGHTS WE ARE ENTITLED TO? ALL along I thought out founding FATHERS MADE IT QUITE CLEAR where OUR RIGHTS came from! READ the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE?
The government is trying to take complete control of our lives, making all our decisions for US! WE can only guess what they will do next if YOU do not stop them! Remember them and show them who is in charge on Nov 2010 "VOTE"!
They were voted in to do the job we wanted! ONCE THEY GOT THERE THEY TOOK ON THE ROLE of DICTATORS, They are NOT in charge, no matter what they say! THEY ARE NOT DOING the job you want, VOTE THEM OUT! ALL THEY ARE DOING IS PLEASING THE PARTY AND KEEPING THEIR PET PROJECTS GOING that equal MONEY AND POWER FOR THEM. We do not need CAREER POLITICIANS! Vote out everyone that tries to take away your God given rights!
You saw that soon after the Democratic vote, they continued to operate behind closed doors. What are they AFRAID OF?
My thought as to why they meet behind closed doors to prevent us from seeing the evil in action because they are too ashamed of what they are doing?
DID YOU KNOW, OUR NATION WAS FOUNDED ON CHRISTIAN VALUES! The fact that every Christian that pays taxes, will now pay part of the cost of abortions. Helping to pay for abortions is certainly violating my right to participate or not participate in such activities. I do not want to be forced into participating, that would be against my Christian believes. What about my God given rights?
ONE MORE TOPIC: Our vice president certainly fits the title (vice) it seems one of his vices is his use of porfanity in his public speeches. That is a great example for the youth of our nation. He should apologize fo rhis choice of words. However no one I know would believe his apology would be sincere.
As a Christian nation, we should all be embarrassed, WE MUST HAVE CHANGE! WE CAN CHANGE THIS! SPEAK UP! Be prepared to VOTE in Nov. 2010! THEN DO IT!

Education is a wonderful thing. The United States is one of the few countries where everyone is eligible for an education. High School is not restricted to only the smartest kids – anyone who makes the effort to pass the lower grades can go on to high school and/or college.
NHS principal appreciates effort of law enforcement
To the Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank District Attorney Bret Burns and Chickasha Police Chief Lynn Williams for going above and beyond their job descriptions to help me with a situation that recently occurred at Ninnekah High School.
Chickasha Police Chief Lynn Williams helped in a matter that occurred in the Chickasha city limits, but affected Ninnekah School. I appreciate his assistance. The Chickasha School District is extremely lucky to have a police chief who will go the extra mile to support education and student safety.
