The Push for a Better America monthly meeting was held last Friday night and I must say it was a good one. We had a good turnout for our six guest speakers.

Larry Joslin was our MC for the evening. I spoke for the extension of the 1/4 cent tax for the Fire Departments. Kenneth Blan went over the state questions for us.

Carroll Bone from the Choctaw County Conservative group talked to us about the judges on the ballot. As Carrol pointed out, this is a tough one to research.

Redcedar trees continue to spread across landscape

Of the nearly 44 million acres that make up Oklahoma, more than 12.6 million are forested.

These forested areas are beneficial to the state. Unfortunately, the extremely invasive eastern redcedars are spreading like wildfire into areas where they have no business, like rangelands and pastures. It was estimated in 1950 that redcedars and other junipers covered approximately 1.5 million acres of the state. By 1983, 3.5 million acres were taken.

AAA is warning motorists that this is the time of the year more deer will be on Oklahoma’s roadways and to be on the lookout for them, especially at dusk and dawn.

“We’re entering deer mating season and the time when deer are searching for food to build up fat reserves for the winter,” said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. “Plus, deer populations are high in Oklahoma right now – increasing the risk of car-deer collisions. Already this fall, motorists have tragically died in crashes with deer in the state.”

Tea Party by Butch Morris

I had a good time at the Deer Festival this past weekend. I hope you made it to the fair grounds and found something that interested you.

I did duty at the Tea Party tent which was beside the Republican Party tent. We kinda helped each other. We were there stumping for the Republican candidates in the up coming elections. The Tea Party is behind these candidates because we believe that they represent conservative ideals and are prepared to stand up for these principals.
