I called yesterday and was told to come in by your last name unless you have a disconnect notice, but wait until it is a few days before cut off, because they have a lot of people with their heat source already cut off, so they are doing them first. Starts Monday.

Why don't you people work and pay for your heat like other people. I for one am getting sick of lazy low lifes getting assistance when I have to pay all my bills on my own. To the above poster that is a very good question. One I'd like an answer to.

I agree. There are jobs out there you just have to look and clean yourself up. Why should everyone else have to work hard to pay their own bill and yours too. Get a job and get off you butt. You are teaching your kids not to work.

Folks continue to have kids that can't afford to take care of them, so the rest of us do with our tax dollars. Your Welcome!

well this mom works and my husband works and we can't get assistance with anything so why should every one else. Do what we do turn off your phone, quit smoking, go to basic cable, don't eat out and buy used as often as possible and pay your own bills. Sometimes some belt righting has to be done but it can be done.

I am a single father. I don't get child support.
I am a full time college student.
I can't get a job after class because daycare isn't open that long.

I was working after I divorced. But it seemed I still qualified for some government assistance. I decided to go back and finish my degree and fully support my kids.
I think in 2 more years I will be fully self sufficient, and not need a handout again.

I'm almost 40. I paid taxes for over 20 years. I think I've paid my share of taxes.
And I have internet because I need it for school.
And electric because it keeps us warm in the cold months.
Sure I see single moms with their "sometimes" boyfriends that get MORE help than I do, and still get nice things for laying on their back.
I don't have cable, my car is 16 years old, and nothing I have is considered "new" or "nice". I used to think that welfare recipients were lazy, and undeserving. Sure, some are. But some just need help to better themselves.

I don't think we should have to explain ourselves to anyone. People should not feel bad for getting help with heap. Some people are just rude and obnoxious.

I think what people are tired of is so many getting government help. Who is the government? Us,we are the government. Who pays for the government? Us, we do.

I understand many really need it. I go to school also and have hear some that receive help say that once they get a job they won't get all the freebies from the government. That is right. We work and pay our way.

I understand people get hurt or other issues and kids need heat but hopefully the kids won't learn to be lazy and look for the easy way out and have the government take care of you.

I understand what you are saying crazy, but a lot of people don't abuse the system and a lot do work and I know there are more out there who do abuse the system and go after everything they can get, but what I am trying to say is there are people who work and can get heap, maybe nothing else, but can get help on their heating bill, which would help us out a lot. I get no kind of other assistance, but can get help with my heating and I am going to go get help with it, because like I said it will help us, especially during the Holidays that are around the corner.
