District 2 School Board Seat Open:  Shelton Announces Resignation  ::  Asiento de la Junta Directiva de TPS abierto: Amy Shelton renuncia
TULSA, Okla. – In her remarks at the district’s July 2 board meeting, Board member Amy Shelton shared her intention to step down from her seat and expressed her gratitude to the constituents of her district. 

In early August, Tulsa Public Schools will invite interested residents of School Board District Two to submit an application for appointment to the board seat that is expected to be vacated by Shelton on Tuesday, Aug. 7. 
The Tulsa Board of Education is expected to accept Shelton’s resignation at their Aug. 6 meeting. Following the guidelines set forth in Board Policy 1102, the Board would consider appointment of a qualified resident from District Two who would hold the seat until the next board election in 2019. Pending the Board’s formal acceptance of Shelton’s resignation, the Tulsa Board of Education would open an application process. Qualified applicants would have to meet the following requirements: Applicant must be a registered voter with the Tulsa County Election Board residing within the geographical boundaries of District Two for at least six months prior to the date of their application for appointment. 
or certificate of high school equivalency. Applicant cannot be employed by Tulsa Public Schools or related within the second degree to any district employee or member of the Board. The appointment to the District Two board seat would run through the spring 2019 school board election. If the appointee seeks to serve the entirety of Board member Shelton’s term ending in 2021, he or she would be required to run for election in 2019. School Board District Two runs along the I-244 corridor, from Pine St. on the north boundary to 11th St. on the south boundary. The district includes the following schools: Booker T. Washington High School, Carver Middle School, Will Rogers College Junior High and High School, and Kendall-Whittier, McKinley, Mitchell, Owen, Sequoyah, and Springdale elementary schools.

OK...2 things I have to admit off the bat...one, I'm a vegetarian, so I can't tell you about the Bourbon Chicken, Hot Pepper w/ BeefMongolian w/ PorkBoneless Spare Ribs or most of the items on the daily "Lunch Special" any 4 items buffet.


But, two, I can tell you the best Broccoli in Garlic Sauce I've had anywhere in the world is right around the corner from you if you are fortunate enough to live anywhere near the corner of Pine and Sheridan in Tulsa, Oklahoma.


I've also been told, by a wonton aficionado that the Fried Wontons at Dragon Express are the best on the planet.


So, in short...though, once I find it on a menu, I rarely venture away from the meal I LOVE...to try other offers (so it's almost always Broccoli in Garlic Sauce for me)...I have it on great authority that you won't go wrong choosing any one of your all-time favorite combos.


The Vegetable Fried Rice...filled with vegetables and mushrooms, the Lo Mein, like everything else I have tried, indescribably delicious...and, take me back to Manhattan, they deliver.

OSDH, Oklahoma Insurance Department Promotes Smoking Cessation in Advance of Tax Increase

In advance of a one dollar increase in the tax on cigarettes and little cigars on July 1, the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) is encouraging those who wish to quit smoking to take advantage of programs that may be available to provide help.

The tax increase is projected to prompt more than 18,000 Oklahomans to stop smoking and the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline (1-800-QUIT-NOW, 1-800-784-8669) is expecting an increase in calls from those who want to give up the smoking habit.

OSDH is also encouraging state employers to join in the effort to educate their employees on what assistance may be available for those who want to quit. Smoking costs Oklahoma businesses an estimated $5,816 per smoker per year, primarily in the form of increase health care costs and productivity losses.

In 2016, 57.5% of smokers said they had made a least one quit attempt during the past year. It often takes multiple attempts before smokers can give up what for many has been a lifelong habit.

“Quitting is tough but help is available. Health insurance companies that offer major medical coverage are required to cover preventive services such as tobacco use counseling and smoking cessation medications”, said Oklahoma Insurance Department Commissioner John D. Doak.“The services are covered with no out-of-pocket costs and no prior authorization. Oklahomans with questions about coverage for these services are encouraged to call my office at 1-800-522-0071 or check with their employer about benefits offered.”

“As Commissioner Doak points out, help is available and it is to the benefit of employers to make their employees aware of that assistance,” said Interim OSDH Commissioner Tom Bates. “Workers who smoke at least one pack of cigarettes a day experience 75 percent more lost productive time than nonsmoking workers, and just three 15-minute smoke breaks a day add up to more than a week of lost time in just one year.”

“We realize that quitting for many is a difficult thing. That is why it is important to provide support for those who wish to quit and employers can provide a great deal of that support,” said Christin Kirchenbauer, OSDH Cessation Systems Coordinator. “Things like providing extra breaks for the employee to call the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline can provide the boost that they need.”

Employers can provide support for their employees that are motivated to quit tobacco in a number of other ways:

Communicate and promote the company insurance benefits for tobacco cessation -  what medication is available, the costs, co-pays, what counseling is available.
Internal resources such as cessation classes, insurance nurse lines, health promotion programs.
Promote and communicate statewide resources like the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline (1-800-QUIT–NOW,1-800-784-8669, Okhelpline.com)

Overall, the reduction in the number of those using tobacco is expected to save the state more than $765 million dollars in long-term health costs.

WARNING  

For everyone who still thinks it’s “frivolous” to drink coffee not brewed by spousal labor ... 

“I could buy a whole can of coffee for $6, man...had my ex-wife make it, had her serve me and watched her clean up.”

Yeah, we all used to think life was simpler with those grated cheese packets, too.

Wouldn’t dare form an opinion on that Lester Holt hosted 2016 presidential debate before hearing from Anderson Cooper or Bill O’Reilly or your co-workers?

Don’t really even like the word “gadget?”

If you hear your auto-bio in any of the above, the newly re-opened Central Library in Downtown Tulsa may not be your cup of tea.

"This likely won’t be a place where readers will be expected to be quiet."

What?

That was Literacy librarian Cleo Yuan...guiding a tour through the 2nd floor of TCCL’s newest endeavor which has to be described more as an experience than as a place.

If you’ve been secretly sympathetic to your daughter or son raising your grandkids in LA or Cleveland or Atlanta or Dallas, Tulsa’s 3 year renovation of its flagship Central Library will convince you those days are numbered.
