School is out all over the Heart of Oklahoma!

Crosswalks and neighborhood streets will be filled with children celebrating the beginning of summer.

The message is simple: Mortorists - Put down the phone, stay alert and watch out for these precious, vulnerable children.


The City of Purcell shredding and RX Take Back event was a great idea!

They made it so easy by just pullling up to the designated spot and the Purcell Police Department volunteers were there to unload and get you going in no time. And you didn’t even have to get out of your car.

I really appreciated having a free service like they provided! I hope everyone took advantage of it!
