"Person to Person - Satisfaction and Service are Our Business"
Stimulus or Porkulus, you be the judge
"The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works - whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified. Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end. Those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account - to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day - because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government."
- President Barack Obama in his Inaugural Address
Congress and the President are getting ready to spend billions of dollars to try to stimulate the economy. As a result, the U.S. Conference of Mayors has responded by releasing a list of "shovel-ready" projects in cities around the country that the mayors would like to see funded. President Obama, however, has promised to spend stimulus dollars only on critical projects.
"What we need to do is examine what are the projects where we're going to get the most bang for the buck [and] how are we going to make sure taxpayers are protected," he has said. "You know, the days of just pork coming out of Congress as a strategy, those days are over."
StimulusWatch.org was built to help the new administration keep its pledge and to hold public officials to account. We do this by allowing you, citizens around the country with local knowledge about the proposed projects in your city, to find, discuss and rate those projects.
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
- Thomas Jefferson

The Internet Librarian
Next time you need to do some research on the Internet and don't know where to start try findingDulcinea.com. At findingDulcinea, a team of 30 expert Internet researchers organizes the best resources on the Web by topic and provides a concise, clear narrative that tells you why a site is recommended and what you'll find when you visit.
The site is designed to help Internet users quickly and easily find the best, most credible Web sites. Web search is becoming increasingly difficult for even the savviest of users. Sometimes the site that answers a user's question is buried on the tenth, not the first, page of search results. Other times, a site that looks like it offers objective information is actually sponsored by a company who wants to direct you to purchase a specific product or service. The founders of findingDulcinea felt that the best way to cut through the clutter of dubious, useless information was to develop an Internet Librarian: a virtual version of the librarian who helped you find the best books in the library for any topic when you were a kid.
FindingDulcinea encompasses all the positive characteristics of the best types of websites. It is entertaining, human-powered, informative, and current. FindingDulcinea provides extensive information on a variety of topics (much like Wikipedia) while offering top news stories. Best of all, this information is gathered by actual humans, not a robot.

In today's environment it seems everyone is promising something. You know this already. What you may not know is that in Oklahoma there have been actual useful promises for some time now ... ones that are kept and really help.
Finances have become a concern for all of us and it is compounded when you have a child wanting to consider college or some sort of vocational training. Where do you get the funds for that?
If you have a child interested in college that you don't think you can afford and assume the only paths are federal PELL grants or student loans you are missing some great opportunities. Oklahoma's Promise is a program that will ensure every student who is doing well in high school but whose family earns less than $50,000 per year will be able to attend college if they so choose. Just go to okpromise.org to find out all you need and even apply online. Or you can call the OK Promise offices at (405)225-9147 or 1-800-858-1840.
Have a child who is not interested in a degree program but still wants a vocation? There's free help out there for that too! You may not know it but Oklahoma Job Corps is not just for alternatives to high school (though they do still do that as well). They provide vocation education and national certification in a variety of fields from electrician to welding to medical... the list is very long.
Try one of the local sites that specialize in rural communities like talkingleaves.jobcorps.gov to find out all the information you need. Or call (405)670-9100 Ext: 117. They have programs that are available for people who have already graduated high school and would like to obtain vocational training instead of go to college.
There are places right in Oklahoma which have offered ways for Oklahomans to send their kids to college or attend expensive vocational training without worrying about having lots of money for tech schools or universities. These have been available for quite a while ... just not well known or advertised. So now you know...there are promises to help with education right here in Oklahoma that have been working well for quite a while! Is this a great state, or what?!
