It seems to me our once moral mayor has turned to the darkside. Mr. Cooper has a dickhead telling him what to do in his little ear. This dickhead, is not respected by anyone that I know of besides Mr cooper. I know he was told he was not deacon material in the church, that's saying something! Mr. Dickhead has many enemies that are just waiting for a reason to give him what he deserves, Mr. Dickhead, do you and this fine town a favor, shut up and just go and now your yards! Don't let the door hit you in the ass!

The mayor is an idiot! He's a crook that is trying to get personal gains! The other counselors are just being puppets and following him. What they don't know will backfire on the whole community. Get ready Locust Grove!

Is this old news or has he wrecked yet another home?

I'm shocked that our City counsel member and Mayor s have not taken his personal life into account. If he has no morals in his personal dealings how can we expect him to have decent work ethics? I have zero respect for any of our City officials when they are able to overlook how this "man" conducts his personal life.

Did the fine people of locust know the mayor wants to close down the jail and pay county to house prisoners? He also wants to hire a town inspector, give the cops a raise? I saw on his Facebook he doesn't know why people are so upset with him. What the hell? How dumb can you be? He's more of a drama queen than a 15 yr old girl! Grow up fairy err Terry! Be a man step down from council, quit being a douche, and you might be able to tow your ass back to being tolerable!

Allright warchild, what do you suggest? There's only so much one person can do! I'm open for suggestions, if you have ideas I'm willing to listen. He needs to step down as mayor and as a council member. If this town, doesn't want their homeowners insurance rates to go way up, and their safety to be jeapordized. This town is dying, and its sad to see it. Don't be surprised when it hits the fan.

Locust Grove accepts bridge bid

Staff Writer Ted King

LOCUST GROVE — Bids were accepted for long-awaited repairs to the Broadway Street Bridge in Locust Grove last Monday night. The council approved a bid from D & E Construction. There were four bids submitted. The bid from D & E was for $38,875.

Vice Mayor Health Holman presided as Mayor Terry Cooper was absent. Other members present were Town Trustees Tony McFarland and Brenda Williams. Martha Pierce joined the meeting late.

During October, the library had 622 patrons, 17 of whom were new; 544 books were checked out; 278 visitors used the Internet; $188 dollars in general funds and $42 in donations.

The fire department had 33 runs, 117 man hours, and two firefighters who completed extraction training.

The police department housed 21 inmates, 15 of those from other towns, wrote 179 warnings, issued 25 citations, completed 15 agency assists, had 413 walk-ins, 12 animal calls, two animals picked up and seven vehicles towed.

The council approved transferring $20,000 from the fire department special fund to a certificate of deposit or CD.

There was no action taken on a fire run regarding Chad Kirby as he was not present at the meeting.

The council approved a .50 cent pay raise for officer Chad Nave retroactive to his Aug. 8 graduation from Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training. Nave will now make $13.50 an hour.

The council spent some time discussing Nave’s CLEET certification. Nave is bound to work in Locust Grove for one year after getting his CLEET certification. Nave has been approached for a job by the town of Chouteau. The council decided that to release Nave, three months after his CLEET certification, Chouteau or any other town would have to pay Locust Grove $5,220.

The council agreed to a 60 day extension for dispatcher Tabitha Smith. Pierce said,“I hear that Tabitha has a bad attitude and that she doesn’t want to do extra duties.” Police Chief Wade Henderson said that Smith did not want to do extra duties because she is new on the job and was concerned that she is not qualified to do extra duties.

The raise was made retroactive to Gillick’s OLETS graduation on Aug. 24. The vote was three to one. Pierce voted no. Gillick will now make $10 an hour.

During discussion of the pay raise for Gore, Henderson admitted that Gore had been late a few times to work. The vote to approve a full time employee was three to one. Pierce voted no.

The council approved paying an invoice from Gillick Automotive amounting to $611.96 for repairs to a radiator on a 2010 Dodge Charger used by the police department.

Meetings must have notice

Staff Writer Ted King

LOCUST GROVE — There was a meeting Friday at the Locust Grove Police Department attended by members of the town council. That in itself wouldn’t be a problem, but proper notice must be made when a meeting is called, allowing the public to attend if they desire.

According to the Oklahoma Open Meetings Act:

“All meetings of public bodies, as defined hereinafter, shall be held at specified times and places where are convenient to the public and shall be open to the public ...”

Regarding special meetings of public bodies, the open meetings law states:“Special meetings of public bodies shall not be held without public notice being given at least 48 hours prior to said meetings.”

Town Trustee Brenda Williams admitted to attending the meeting Friday.“It was just a meeting on procedure,” she said Tuesday afternoon.“I’m sorry I can’t talk about this any more.”

Moments later, Mayor Terry Cooper said he could not recall his whereabouts Friday morning. Cooper insisted he was doing his own investigation into personnel matters at the police department.

At the last town meeting, Assistant Police Chief Zeb Rone resigned after making a laundry list of allegations of misconduct against Police Chief Wade Henderson.

Town Trustee Martha Pierce said she was not notified about the Friday meeting.

Vice Mayor Health Holman said he was not at the police station Friday. He said he thinks the police were having a “regular squad meeting” but said he did not know anything more.

Newly sworn trustee Tony McFarland, was unavailable for comment.

Rone was hired in December. He told the council at the regular meeting he was being forced out of his job by Henderson because of his experience. Rone said he saw no point in continuing as assistant police chief.

This story has generated more media interest. Channel 23, the FOX affiliate in Tulsa, was in Locust Grove Wednesday working on a story about the police department.

LG hears waste water plant update

Staff Writer Ted King

PRYOR — The Locust Grove Public Works Authority met last week.

Mary Elizabeth Mach with Garver Engineering presented an update on the town’s waste water treatment plant. Mach said the start date of Feb. 1, 2013, for new design and specifications for the plant is,“Simply put, unrealistic.”

She said that date is not the recommendation of Garver Engineering and that Garver has been working with the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality to push the date six months to Aug. 1.

Mach said she is hopeful the date will be extended.

Mach said she told ODEQ the Feb. 1 date is not going to happen from a financial standpoint.

“They accepted this report as it stands and in that report you can see that Aug. 1 of 2013 is our date for submitting plans of specifications. You might say I am arguing with them (ODEQ) on the city’s behalf.” Mach added that if the town approves the consent order with Garver, the town has a better chance of getting the date moved to Aug. 1.

Geotechnical Services had not been included for this proposed design for the waste water treatment plant. Mach said Garver had subcontracted with Geotechnical Services in the past, but to “pass the savings on to you” she suggested the town contract with them directly on the waste water plant and in so doing save “several thousands of dollars.” The PWA approved the work order with Garver to set up a design on the waste water plant.

The PWA took no action regarding a water tap for Joe McFarland who is father of town trustee Tony McFarland, and cannot make a decision on his father’s water tap as they are related.

This left only Vice Mayor Heath Holman and Brenda Williams to make a decision and they did not have a quorum.

The PWA took no action on soliciting bids for water wells for residents along 570 Road who experience non-compliant water pressure. No residents along 570 Road were present at the meeting.

The PWA approved $150 Christmas bonuses for full-time employees and $75 for part-time employees.

The PWA tabled the meeting dates for the 2013 calendar.

The PWA approved paying invoice 4564 for $563 to J & W Mechanical. This was taken out of the water and sewer fund. This was for clearing a sewer line.

The PWA approved payment on invoices 4293 and 4346 for $1,883.60 to

S & D Electric. The funds were taken out of the water and sewer fund. The water plant pumps were not running. S & D replaced on pump and rebuilt the engine of another.

The PWA approved payment on an invoice for $1,302.24 to Pryor Stone for rock and screens for the water line replacement to be taken out of the PWA fund.

The PWA approved payment of invoice 0945704-IN for $6,010.79 to Water Products for pipes, couplings, and other items necessary for laying of the new water line.

The PWA discussed raising the rate of a water deposit for renters in town from $100 to $150 or $200. Town Clerk Tamatha Ogilvie said “Ninety-five percent of renters leave owning the town money on their water bill.” Ogilvie said the deposit increase may help offset the loses. Town attorney Tammy Ward said she would have to check the law as it may not be legal to charge renters a different deposit rate than what is paid to home owners. No action was taken.
