Court Appointed Special Advocates- CASA Volunteers go into the courtroom, because of the judges request, to speak for children in state custody due to accusation of abuse and neglect. CASA volunteers talk with foster parents, parents, attorney, caseworkers, doctors, teachers, and anyone else involved in the case or the child's life. CASA volunteers are able to present information to the judge so that the child's best interest is able to be met. CASA volunteers are often the only consistent person in their life during this time. For more information or to volunteer, contact Tulsa CASA at http://www.tulsacasa.org/
Smart Meters- What's the Deal?- Smart meters are being installed locally and are being touted as a time saver, money saver, and much more. The problem many people are having with these is that they don't believe that the meters are doing what they are supposed to do and also that there are things they do that are not being told. In the past we had analog meters with dials. There was no concern with health issues or harm to anyone with the old meters. These new meters have 2 microwave transmitters in them that are basically equivolent to 2 household microwaves. They are made to go inside your home. The radiation from these actually go inside the walls of the home and the meters go off thousands of times per day. These meters are not voluntary, they are mandatory. Microwave Radiation is caused by smart meters and wireless devices. Part of the problem with this is that people are not being told that this is happening to them. The meters also cause what is called dirty electricity. This comes out of the wiring in your home all the time. The biggest problem is that people can't feel, touch, see or taste this stuff.

Flooding and Your Insurance- Water, flooding and insurance bring up many questions. You must purchase a separate flood policy. A down pour of rain, for example, can cause a flood. Your homeowners policy will not cover that. If you have a slow leak in the wall that is happening over a long period of time that causes wood rot. That is not typically covered in your policy either. For more information about your homeowners policy, what's covered, what's not covered, and the cost for changes, contact Tedford Insurance at 918-299-2345 or www.tedfordinsurance.com.
