Library Collecting Cards For Heros

The Collinsville Library will be collecting Christmas cards for the “Holiday for Heroes” program. Former Representative Joe Dorman started collecting the cards to ensure Oklahomans who want to wish recovering soldiers a Merry Christmas are able to do so. This is a wonderful way to show your support to our brave service men and women.

The library has Christmas cards available you can address or you can bring your own already addressed to the library for mailing. Cards need to be returned to the library before Thursday, December 15.

Please follow the guidelines below in order for your card to get sent promptly:

· Cards can be addressed to “Dear Service Member” or a specific recovering individual at Fort Sill.

· Make sure your card is signed

· Do not send letters

· Do not include your email or home address

· Do not include inserts of any kind, including photos

· Do not use glitter

The holiday is a great time to show our troops how much we care and support their service to our great country. Also, we are a drop off site for the Tri-County Blue Star Mothers. For a list of items to donate, visit their site at

OHP K-9 Retirement
For Immediate Release -- December 3rd, 2014

Tulsa-Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials announce their upcoming retirement event for OHP Explosive Detection K-9 "Mayo", (pronounced My-0).

OHP Bomb Tech Trooper Lon Wise, Mayo's K-9 handler, will accompany his partner at the retirement event to be held at Troop B Tulsa Headquarters on Friday, December 12th, at 10:00 AM. Troop B is located at 9191 E. Skelly Drive in Tulsa.

Trooper Wise and Mayo became partners in September 2007 and have worked various assignments including bomb threats to schools, courthouses, correctional facilities and businesses. Together they responded to an average of over 40 calls for service per year. Their duties have ranged from tornado relief to protective sweeps for high ranking government officials including the President of the United States.

Mayo is now nine years old and will retire to live with his partner after seven years of dedicated service to the OHP and the citizens of Oklahoma. Please help us honor his service by attending this special and momentous occasion.

For more information please contact Captain George Brown at 918-284-5766.
