    I recently saw a news report on TV about a proposed treatment facility in Bridge Creek for individuals with addictive problems and the public outcry was “NOT HERE”. I am the board chairman of such a facility in NW Oklahoma. I believe the reason people don’t want such a facility is they haven’t thought thru their response. The individuals that go to such places are generally wanting help and are there to get past this stage in their lives. Residents of such facilities that do not comply with requirements of the program are generally removed and must find housing elsewhere. The more dangerous element are the ones still on the street pushing and using in your neighborhoods. I have seen instances where the real problem lived next door to the individuals making the greatest protest about such facilities and programs. I urge you to take some time and think about this question: “Would you rather have the user on the street using and selling or in a structured program getting help?” Sincerely, Jay Bartel

    Who ever wrote the story in yesterday’s paper about the former legion leader David Kellerman should be fired allowing the legion state commander to use your paper to grind his personal axes with me kellerman how can u look at your kids or grandkids and be proud of what you do it’s funny you print the story two months after the man was charged but the day after the legion commander files a civil suit against mr kellerman and the commander requested a jur for the civil trial so the paper would not be trying to hurt his chance at his constitutional right to a fair trial the legion commander cares nothing h about that he dislikes mr kellerman for being honest about the legion in mustang u see them at wal mart once a year trying to raise money for the hotel rooms and whatever at the state convention other than that the American legion does nothing in mustang the same 3 or 4 people sit atop wont let go cause they like them free hotel rooms but you need to investigate a story if your gonna write it and consider your self a publication cause right now it’s being run like a tabloid why did u not tell the readers that the two investigating agencies the mustang pd and dhs both ruled that there was no evidence to file charges on. Mr kellerman the crooked da the same one that had the fake cop harassing mr kellerman by the way the man got ten years for being a fake cop did the times report that’and only did 6 months what a crooked county but the da presses charges on him anyway just to hurt him financially and go try and further damage his reputation cause your all crooked does anyone even care he has an 11 year old son that goes to mustang schools well I knkw mr kellerman and he would never do anythjng like that to a child wish I could say the same for all the people doing what u all are doing I hope u all get fired and someone needs to throw the Canadian county da in jail I hope u go back to being a repeatable paper if not I will cancel my subscription immediately respectfully submitted by stop media and county corruption

    In his effort to make us all feel better about the ‘slush fund’ in congress, Markwayne Mullen was wrong on a couple of levels.

    1) He says it is ok since only a very small amount of that $17.1 million was used to settle cases of sexual harassment. He couldn’t be more wrong. If a single penny of taxpayer money was paid to settle claims of wrongdoing that is wrong. Personally, I think it should be a crime!
    2) If damages were paid to settle claims of harassment, whether sexual or other, or discrimination, or any other wrongdoing, those damages should be paid by the wrongdoer. I fail to see any reason taxpayers should be stuck with this tab.
    Oh, well, that’s just me. I’m so aggravated that such a ‘Slush Fund’ should even exist and the idea that lawmakers have been sticking taxpayers with that kind of expense – and just because they can – is just appalling to me. It makes me wonder what other kind of dirty secrets are in that swamp.

    Maybe I don’t want to know.
