County tables awarding bid for

courthouse work
Two bids were received for the proposed masonry preservation, maintenance and repair of the county courthouse during Tuesday’s meeting. However, awarding of the bid was tabled to allow the board to look at the submitted proposals.
The difference between the two bids was about $1,200.
The commissioners also approved janitorial and lawn service contracts for the Okmulgee County Health Department. Those sites also include Beggs and Henryetta.
Other agenda items approved during the session were:
• Blanket Purchase Orders
• Surplus 2013-2014 Fiscal Year monies to 2014-2015 Fiscal Year
• Donation of Employee Leave to Tim Ridgeway from Tonya Day (40 hours annual leave) and Shelley Stephens (30 hours sick leave)
• Detention Transportation Claim for OJA in the amount of $664.76 (June 2014)
• Invitation to Bid #3 for one used 1999 or newer, diesel-powered chip spreader
Under new business, the board approved a letter stating that the commissioners “will not support any recommendation or legislation that will remove the exempt status of our county and remain exempt from any civil penalties.”
The letter will be submitted to the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.

OSUIT showcasing high-tech

jobs during 'Career Encounters'
Close to 1,500 people attended last year’s record-setting Career Encounters event on the campus of OSU Institute of Technology. This year organizers are hoping for an equally impressive turnout of prospective students.
The annual event showcases the university’s hands-on technical and applied science programs, and nearly every program on campus will offer interactive one-hour sessions.
Career Encounters is Oct. 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., with check-in outside the Student Union and lunch provided for all who register.
High school seniors, Career Tech students and adult learners are encouraged to attend Career Encounters to get an up close, firsthand look at what OSUIT has to offer. Participants can choose three sessions to attend throughout the day.
“Participants can expect to be actively involved in hands-on activities that are designed to show them what the college major in a particular area is about, what they do and where they are hired,” said Dr. Ina Agnew, vice president of student services.
With almost 50 sessions to choose from, students can learn about high voltage pole climbing, cyber crime investigations, luxury watchmaking, 3D animation and culinary arts just to name a few.
“Attendees learn what each program is about, and if it’s a good fit,” Agnew said. “A person might think that she doesn’t want to pursue a major in engineering. Then she participates in activities in engineering, realizes she had fun, and the she has some of the skill sets to be successful in a high-paying, high-demand field in engineering.”
The sessions are a chance for participants to meet with instructors one-on-one, interact and talk with current students and even meet with prospective employers.
It’s also a chance for visiting students to get a taste of what the learning environment is like at OSUIT.
“The most valuable take away from Career Encounters is getting rid of inaccurate, preconceived notions of programs,” she said. “You may think you know what manufacturing is about, but your perception may be way off, and after attending the sessions, you realize it’s a pretty cool field.”
Information booths will be set up throughout campus to assist anyone who needs help, and admissions and financial aid staff will also be on hand to answers any questions.
Registration is required for Career Encounters and those interested in attending should sign up soon because seating is limited in each session.
To see the event brochure with session descriptions or to register online, go to or contact Sable Wise at or call 918.293.5220.
