Representative Club Announces Winners
In The Wilson Elementary Presidents Day Coloring Contest
The Home Representative Club (HRC) of Collinsville was very excited to host the 4th annual President's Day Coloring Contest for students at Collinsville Wilson Elementary. The HRC Coloring Contest committee members are Carolyn Brinkley and Rusti Howard. HRC is a civic organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer services. For over 50 years HRC has sponsored many projects for the community. Just some of the programs that have allowed HRC the opportunity to help the students of the Collinsville School system are:
* Sponsor the annual
Mother/Daughter Senior Tea for CHS graduating senior girls
With the help of the Wilson Elementary staff, HRC implemented this contest four years ago and each year it has proven to be fun for the students. Each teacher at Wilson Elementary speaks to their students about the meaning of Presidents Day. The students then color a picture that they feel best represents their interpretation of Presidents Day. The children are not allowed to put their names on their papers, instead the teachers assign a number to the students paper. Each teacher then chooses the top three best pictures from their classroom and those papers are given to a judge who has over 40 years experience in art. This judge then volunteers their time to judge the pictures on neatness, creativity and how the student best represents What Presidents Day means to me.
The Home Representative Club would like to thank the Bank of the Lakes of Collinsville for their generous donation of paper, Brinkley Howard for the donation of Presidents Day pencils that were given to each student, Wilson Elementary office staff, Cheryl Hunt, LeeAnn Due and Kendra Salisbury and the Wilson Elementary staff, students and the teachers for their time and devotion to this project. The winners were announced at an Awards Assembly on Wednesday, February 26, 2014. Each winner received a trophy from the Home Representative Club. It is with great excitement to announce the 2014 Home Representative Club Wilson Elementary President's Day Coloring Contest winners are:
Congratulations to all!

Review by Sen. Rick Brinkley
|February 24, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The full Senate this week acted quickly in approving my proposal to establish a modern pension system for the next generation of state employees. I was pleased to see the measure approved by a broad, majority vote.
An important feature of our transition to a modern pension system for future state employees is portability. We want employees to be able to take their plan with them if they choose to leave state service. Under the current pension system, state employees that do not work in state service long enough to vest cannot receive a state retirement benefit when they become eligible. Eight years of credited service are required for a state employee to vest.
In other words, current state employees can work in state service for more than seven years, and lose their retirement contribution if they choose to leave state service before vesting. This is simply unfair. A modern system will guarantee that employees can take their retirement plan with them if they choose to leave.
In addition, our plan will allow the next generation of employees to take advantage of the power of markets to achieve greater returns on their retirement contributions. This will be a valuable recruiting tool for state government, and will enable us to make greater progress in paying down our $11 billion unfunded pension liability.
It is important to note that this proposal would not impact the Oklahoma Teachers Retirement System (OTRS), which is a completely different retirement system, administered by its own state agency.
Please feel free to contact me at the state Capitol by calling (405) 521-5566 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
