Oowala OHCE thanks Baker Hughes
Oowala Home and Community Education Group has been an active participant in the OHCE statewide “Just Let Them Know We Care” military/family support project. The main objective of this project is to support our military troops by sending packages, letters and to have personal contact with troops serving overseas.
Our local group members have provided items for the packages.
The items sent have ranged from personal toiletries to dog treats for bomb sniffing dogs to school supplies and clothing for local children in orphanages.
Since our group began participating in this project in 2008, we have sent 105 packages overseas. our group would not have been able to affor the postage to mail this many packages. All of us appreciate Baker Hughes Centrilift’s part in supporting the United States’ troops all around the world.

State voters oppose Obamacare related bill
Today the Oklahoma House of Representatives, in a blatant disregard for the voice of Oklahoma citizens, voted to accept $54,482,000 from the federal government to implement Obamacare when they approved HB 1030, the “Economic Development Generating Excellence Fund” bill.
The 41-page agreement that provides the money ties us to implementing Obamacare by law.
It is a contract that will be upheld in any court in the land. In November We the People voted, with 70 percent of the voters in favor, for SB 756 that said we are opting out of government health care.
Attorney General Scott Pruitt has filed a lawsuit against provisions of Obamacare.
Today, with the blessings of Gov. Mary Fallin and the Republican leadership, our state House voted to accept money that will negate not only the voice of We the People but also the lawsuit that the Oklahoma Republican Party successfully used to run on last fall.
This is the same kind of activities that we voted against when we voted Democrats out of office.
The Republican leadership has lied by saying Sen. Tom Coburn supports this and they lied by saying the Heritage Foundation supports this.
I wonder if this is the kind of representation we voted for in November. I urge all who read this to contact your state senator and insist they vote no when it comes to a vote in their chamber in the next couple of weeks.
