At the rate the City of Claremore is losing city officials someone needs to tell the last person leaving to be sure and turn out the lights at City Hall.
A short time ago the people here were making fun of the Tulsa situation between the mayor and city council plus the dismissal of police officers and their rehiring. Move over neighbors to the southwest: Claremore may now be No. 1 when it comes to performing so called city business.
The more informed can decide who is right and who is wrong in this current situation. Regardless, it needs to be worked out in a professional matter.
Is Civics still taught in high school? Some years back students taking that course would assume the various city offices for a day for on-the-job training. If memory holds true, the students never embarrassed themselves or the community in doing this.
Maybe it is time to let the youngsters take over again.
At the rate Claremore is currently moving, our Chief of Police will not be able to retire after all. Mickey Perry will not have anyone left to turn in his badge!
On the topic of Chief Perry’s upcoming plans he has indicated he wants to continue efforts when it comes to helping his Claremore neighbors. In this regard the following list has been compiled on things NOT to say to say if a police officer pulls you over.
Hopefully with the Chief’s blessing, here they are:
1. “Hi’a Buddy…have’ a drink.”
2. “I thought you had to be in good physical shape to be a cop.”
3. “What’s the idea of stopping me, can’t you see I am in a hurry?”
4. “You’re not going to check in the trunk, are you?”
5. “And here I thought you Village People were just an act,”
6. “I wasn’t anywhere near that liquor store holdup tonight.”
7. “Wow, that car of yours can also go over 110 miles per hour.”
8. “It sure is nice of you to let me off with a warning. That makes four times in a row just this month.”
9. “Say Officer, I guess you do not realize who my uncle is.”
10. “What do you mean Driver’s License? The judge last week said I wouldn’t be needing one any time soon.”
