  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

Be careful with hand sanitizer with your children

OKMULGEE, Okla.) May 14 - The pre-kindergarten student at Okmulgee Primary School ingested a small amount of hand sanitizer right before lunch.

The school says a teacher put some on the child's hands to clean them but instead of rubbing it on her hands the girl ate it. The girl had to be rushed to the hospital when she acted intoxicated.

You expect hand sanitizer to keep your kids safe but one of the main ingredients in the stuff is actually alcohol.

If you turn it over and look at the label it shows 62-percent alcohol that’s enough to make adults and many kids drunk or sick.

Four-year-old Halle Butler is doing much better but just a few days ago it was a much different story.

Halle’s mom says, "I'll never forget the look in her eyes when she looked at me... It was... nuh uh."

"I walked in and she's leaning up against the wall and her eyes are just kinda...doing whatever they want not focused on anything, she tried to get up and can't walk,” Halle’s dad recalls.

Halle’s parents eventually learned their daughter had eaten, rather than rubbed on her hands, a small amount of hand sanitizer. Doctors say the alcohol inside made her intoxicated.

The incident scared everyone including school officials. The very next day the school banned hand sanitizer.

The school’s principal says, “it was a surprise, kinda unbelievable. We were killing the germs before they do to lunch so they wouldn't be eating the germs... and then we find out later... we're doing as much harm as we are doing good."

Halle’s mom says, “it was horrible... I think my heart stayed up in my throat the majority of the day."

Halle's mom now wants other parents to be aware of what can happen... so no one else goes through what they have.

So after an incident like this many parents may be wondering is hand sanitizer safe?

Well the makers of hand sanitizer say yes it is as long as it’s used as directed. That means kids need to put it on their hands and use it on their hands. They should never put hand sanitizer in their mouths.

Poison control experts say drinking hand sanitizer can be fatal in both children and adults.

The reason is that sanitizer contains 62-percent alcohol while most hard liquor contains 40-percent. Beer in Oklahoma meanwhile contains 3.2 percent.

I recently read an article about a person that used hand sanitizer and went outside and lit a cigarette which caused his hands to catch fire.  From what the story said, the guy got burned pretty badly.

I work in an Optometry Clinic and pure hand sanitizer is actually pretty bad. You can use it mixed with soap but should be careful using alone. My husband had a private that wanted to go to the ER he drank some hand sanitizer!Shows how smart they are
