HATS OFF TO P.S.O.
On Sunday morning, the day after Christmas, I woke up to a partial electrical outage and no heat. Brrrrr!
Upon notification P.S.O. promptly sent out an employee who found the problem (a bad outside wire) and put in a temporary fix.
On Thursday, a whole crew showed up, promptly went to work and had a permanent fix in place- cleanly, efficiently and with a minimum of in convenience to me.
Great big thanks to a great crew.
Uncle Joe, the windmill man for the Common Good
South of town, my grandfather’s family grew wheat. North of town, my grandmother’s family raised cattle. Water was important to everyone and everything. Unless you were fortunate enough to have a live creek on your land, you had a windmill.
Inhofe comments evidence of larger political problem
There is no denying that global warming is one of the most disputed and politicized issues of the last two decades.

Writer looks at constitutionality of presidents
As I'll be turning 88 in June, I'd begun to lose hope for at last witnessing in my lifetime some legal accountability for the George W. Bush-Dick Cheney-Barack Obama-CIA-national security torture policy instituted after 9/11, which continues today.
Seeing the forest and the trees….for the Common Good
Today, my optometrist would probably call it Macular Degeneration. In the 1940’s my family just knew that my grandfather’s cousin should not have been driving a car.
Dorman updates on remaining bills
I have an update on my remaining bills going through the legislative process. I will have three pieces of legislation which will need further work, but I expect good, thoughtful policies to come about from them.
Editorial: Tax continuation could only be good for Grady County
Taxes are a necessity for any community on the verge of extreme growth, and Grady County is no different.
Perryman touts importance of reading
I grew up in a house that received a daily newspaper, two weeklies and a number of magazines. That was the norm. My grandparents’ homes were the same. So was their parents’. Settling in western Caddo County in 1901, my Indiana great grandparents kept up with news from the area where they were raised through the ‘Churubusco Times’ and my Kansas great grandparents did the same with a paper from central Kansas.
Dorman reviews bills authored in senate
As we proceed through the session, I wanted to provide you with some information on the bills I am authoring for Senators. Each piece of legislation requires an author from both bodies, so these are the bills I am currently carrying for my colleagues across the rotunda.
