We have had a new trash service for the past few years now. I would like to say how unhappy I am with this new "service." After the last ice storm we had, I placed a tree limb that was 3' long no bigger than an inch thick, on top of my trash can. The guys removed the limb off my trash can and put it on the ground and dumped the can. They already had it picked up why wouldn't the throw it in the truck? I am also having a difficult time getting an answer on where I need to put my trash for collection. I live in the middle of a block, do I have to drag my trash behind mine and my neighbors fence to the alley? Or do I put it at the street, like the people around the corner. Collection should be the same for every home! I also would like to know why this company doesn't do a bulk pickup, picking up at our homes, not us taking it to them? Not everybody has access to a pickup to haul it with. I also have a question for the city. Why wouldn't we look into accepting a bid that would provide residents with a cart. The carts that are provided do not blow all over town and is also harder for animals to get into. They look nicer as we drive through town, instead of looking at 6 trash cans and lids thrown in yards. Carts would also provide the city a chance to have more income, considering you would charge extra for the addtional cart(s) that homes may need. There is no way of doing that with the trash cans we have to use now. Isn't that the main reason went to an outside company, because we were losing money? Just some things for the city and residents to think about when this current contract is up.

Education is a wonderful thing. The United States is one of the few countries where everyone is eligible for an education. High School is not restricted to only the smartest kids – anyone who makes the effort to pass the lower grades can go on to high school and/or college.

To the Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank District Attorney Bret Burns and Chickasha Police Chief Lynn Williams for going above and beyond their job descriptions to help me with a situation that recently occurred at Ninnekah High School.
Chickasha Police Chief Lynn Williams helped in a matter that occurred in the Chickasha city limits, but affected Ninnekah School. I appreciate his assistance. The Chickasha School District is extremely lucky to have a police chief who will go the extra mile to support education and student safety.
