Leadership Lawton Needs Public Help Improving Road

LAWTON Okla_ A Lawton group wants to make a local school's bumpy ride smoother, but they need your help.

Leadership Lawton Class 23 has been working on the project to fix the Eisenhower Middle School roadway for a year. It's a heavily traveled road that links all the Ike schools. The only problem is it's riddled with potholes.

"That roadway has gotten really bad over the years," Leadership Lawton Class 23 Representative Helena John said. "You could probably lose a small car back there."

John said they have the construction plans and lots of community volunteers. They even received a $100,000 donation from Lawton Public Schools, but the group still needs more.

"We're on our way, but we are just still out there asking the community to kind of step up and help us to finish this project," John said. "At this point, we're at about $36,000 we still are lacking in the project."

John said they need it fast. The group wants to get the temporary road started right away, preferably before school starts. If the money doesn't come in, they'll have to wait until next summer.

If you'd like to help out, whether it's a cash donation or a donation of construction services, give John a call at 580-695-6659.

    What budget cuts could mean for the Oklahoma State Department of Health

    The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) has developed plans covering projected 5, 10 or 15% reductions in state appropriated funding. “The requested scenarios place OSDH in the unfortunate situation of having to eliminate programs, reduce services, regionalize statewide services and close county health department sites to meet the requirements of the potential revenue reduction."

    Two LGBTQ Bills did not pass the state Senate. Senate Bill 694 would have stripped Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Norman’s ability to protect against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation in housing and employment. It also would have prevented other municipalities from passing similar ordinances.
