All four propositions passed. However, Proposition 2 (which included Price Tower Park and Amphitheater) passed by a much thinner margin at a little over 66% (all of the items required a 60% or more vote to enact); the other propositions passed by about 79%, 83% and 81% respectively. A voter turnout of 4,138 people made this decision for a city with a population of approximately 34,748. Bartlesville is in a declining population mode which means fewer people will be paying into the property tax base to cover these bonds. That is about 8% of the population voting in this special election.
Maybe we should eliminate special elections and have these matters on general election ballots so that more people would participate. Just a thought…

Not too long ago, a 50-year-old man from Illinois was diagnosed with “incurable inoperable” lung and pericardial heart sac cancer. The doctors told him he had about a year to live, but could opt to undergo chemotherapy to extend his life.
As you may or may not know, the survival rate of lung cancer is incredibly grim. It is estimated that the prognosis for Stage IA non-small cell lung cancer is less than 50%. Sadly, this drops as the cancer progresses. For a Stage IV patient, the likelihood of recovery is 1%.
Aware of the odds against him, patient Darren Miller decided to supplement his chemotherapy treatments with cannabis oil. Clearly, he didn’t just want to extend his life, he wanted to save it.
After researching the benefits of cannabis oil and reading hundreds of other peoples’ personal stories of healing, Miller was confident the treatment was right for him.

Yes, I am mad as a hornet and wanting all the representatives in Oklahoma to know it!
There is NO excuse for raising taxes when you have not dealt with waste and fraud and SWAG.
Really folks go back to the drawing board. Clean house first. Cut across the board if you need to do so. But at least make an effort to get your house in order before you come asking the taxpayer for more!
Now we have this ‘StepUp’ corporate money group wanting you to pay more while they still operate with tax credits. Well sure they do. You taxpayers gonna go for it?
Tell your representatives what you think – politely, but quickly. They will be voting this week on picking your pocket some more.

Revival must lead to reformation so we can truly occupy until He returns – here’s why! Please watch and share this important timely message from Lance Wallnau. #betheheadandnotthetail
We need you now more than ever! Let’s continue to pray for the president & the revival & the reformation that has begun. The greatest enemy is not the opposition – the greatest enemy is our ignorance of what this move of God looks like. Here are three key insights to share with others …
