The City has a Drainage Problem.

Wewoka—It’s Summer again and the rain, the streets, and opinions are all coming together to form the ‘utopia” we call Wewoka. How is it that within a system that has received a Dept. of Commerce grant to build a green building for TMCo. and drill an oil well in the sum total of a million $$Dollars$$ 1000000USD, that no one could fix the drainage problems? No new jobs, no work program, no incentive for youth to work, no sense of entitlement.
Spending money within the tax system, meaning allowing new groups of tax payers to find sustenance through the money spent wisely, has to be done responsibly. Matters of creating taxes to be collected from spending tax $$Dollars$$ USD is a concept that started through George W. Bush and continued with Barrack Obama through the stimulus program.
Well driven into the psyche, lexicon, and moral value of this community is not to make bad public decision. Privately, a more controllable approach to systemic risk management can be developed. Proverbs 18:1 A man who isolates himself seeks after his own desires he rages against all wise judgement.~Solomon.
The wisdom of this community has been to push ahead, but what held progress back. No review process. We are not a military, militia, or militant. To review in the context that I stated, is to chronicle the progress of whatever you do. This way you see what works, and what you should change.
The relation of moral value and notable public fare is notorious for lie -ing to lesser educated people to save them the time and the embarrassment of being wrong or sounding illiterate. I have always found it more beneficial to find out myself. So why is information on the internet sketchy at best about Wewoka?
I see a lot about Marcus Gardley’s “The Road Weeps and the Well Runs Dry,” but what about Henry Alexander, Law Day U.S.A. and Gopher John. The city website says that there are only 15 officers under Chief Gregory Brooks and Mayor Evelyn King, a “Free Land” Program and that Elijah Brown was the founder (ask someone who has taken freshman Oklahoma History who that was).
According to Sigmund Freud, man is led by his surroundings. So when it is the responsibility of a group to maintain the surroundings, it is due to them the successes and faults of the citizens around. And to that effect the opportunities that grant the prior.
The problems with drainage exemplify the standards of process that have plagued this community like this:
Wewoka Chronicle: The City’s Drainage Problem
Wewoka: This will not do.
Wewoka Government: It’ll dry up.
Wewoka: What about the mosquitoes?
All jokes aside, there is a boarded up store front between 2nd & 3rd street On Wewoka street that has no roof and no floor to cover its basement. I call it a “mosquito hatchery.” Seminole street has two big ones that often stall cars. Most often are the big puddles in front of the driveways.
To excuse this type of negligence would be easy with the crime rate and all, but where are the opportunities? The Byrne Grant. The Byrne Grant is a grant given to police departments by the federal government. The criteria for this grant is that the city have a high crime rate. Our low grades in schools, high infidelity rate, and casino greed factor make us prime candidates.
As a community we have the responsibility of caring for the city and it’s required utilities. Terrorists target them, because we need them. What can’t we as a community take the responsibility that Mark Mosley could not, and renovate the city in a way that represents us.
Even if you planned on leaving town, you would want to come back to revisit your memories. You can’t if the town dries up.
Passing the buck and moral apathy tend to be leaned on by the majority of immoral scoundrels that call themselves funny television characters that were meant to ridicule and expose them to the public authority. My concern is that no one cares about the well-being of this community only the selfish notion that they are more important than their own goals.
Throughout history men and women have become respected and compensated for developing strong relationships within communities through community renovation, systemic risk management and the setting of goals.
The goal of this article, obviously, is to get a hold on the mosquito population. The goal of my newspaper is to make Wewoka a great place to live starting with your support. Financially, the support of my readers could end up creating a job skills training program for software, clerical, and warehouse certifications, along with the creation of a festival committee.
But Wewoka has to have a good surrounding environment to fill the place. An influx of tourism could bring some well-earned tax dollars starting with your donation to renovate Wewoka’s atmosphere.
The goal is $500,000 for drainage, alley ways to bike trails, and sidewalks. To donate by credit card, click on the button below. To donate by check, email a photo of your signed check to WewokaChronicleEditor@gmail.com. To donate cash call 405 585 6224.
