This cold snap is raising awareness of homelessness in Oklahoma - especially in northeast Oklahoma where a man froze to death overnight last week. Officials and volunteers have been working around the clock to help those in need, sometimes coming into a debate about the best way to assist. Please do what you can to support the programs providing aid to the homeless as we continue to face this weather, and also those battling the pandemic facing the world.
Once again, Oklahomans have pulled through another “unprecedented” bout of winter weather. Last October it was the unusually early ice storms. During the past two weeks, Oklahomans were hit with more ice, then two rounds of snow and sub-zero temperatures seldom seen in Oklahoma, or this part of the country for that matter.
There are few events a rancher dreads as much as drought and wildfire.
We hope you will enjoy the Dec. 2020 issue of the new Hennessey Clipper, a bi-monthly, regional publication, focusing on public policy, human interest, and economic issues in western Oklahoma.
More Oklahomans than ever might sign up for a health care plan on the Affordable Care Act exchange for the upcoming year.
