LETTERS: Sports spending, government and scams


STILLWATER, Okla. — Cynthia Stevenson



Watch it

The latest scam to show up is on your phone bill.

My August statement had a $29.90 charge from TRSCN CLRNG. This company somehow charges to your bill for services you do not authorize. By going to and asking who is TRSCN CLRNG I found out this company is notorious in doing this and charging for service you never authorized. There were loss comments on web for this company and others like it. I encourage anyone to check phone bills closely with these types of scams. Scammers will ask you a security question. Like a fool I gave them the answer.

If Oklahoma would only vote for gambling, we would have so much money for education.

Well, we voted on gambling. Who knows how much money is allotted for education?

Some children were raised to believe their grades were their wages. A means you are presidents, CEOs, etc. B means you are vice presidents or assistants. C would mean you are medium wage workers. D and F you are dishwashers and street sweepers. Learning comes easy for some and others have to work harder. You can do anything you sincerely want to.

The government can raise federal checks and those in higher-paying positions (sic.) The government can support other countries by sending our people overseas to settle their problems and ignore the ones at home! How many men do allied countries send to other countries to settle their problems like we do? We should have no more men overseas than they do. When will the government in the White House learn we cannot manipulate others to be like the United States?

We can do away with some of our teachers, put more students in one room and still expect the same amount of education and attention to all students.

How many principals and secretaries have they eliminated? Are we going to wind up with a future generation of dishwashers and street sweepers?

President Obama, the white horse you were riding is not so white anymore.
