“Monster Trucks”
continued from Page 1
 Mike Hawkins purchased the Equalizer name and
truck from David Morris years ago and has lived up
to the championship-caliber driving it was known for
ever since. His construction company made possible
the eventual purchase of two great race trucks,
which eventually became the current Hot Tamale
and Equalizer pieces on the circuit today. Always an
entertainer, Hawkins has never been known to back
down from any challenge in racing, or obstacle in
 “The trucks are paid for, and I didn’t come
around monster trucks to go easy on them!” says the
Virginian. “I drive them hard and I want them driven
hard, like they’re supposed to be!”
 Hawkins has taken many wins in both racing and
freestyle, and is the featured truck at many events he
 “I go out to thrill the fans and give them the best
I can every time,” he says. “That’s what matters to
Equalizer is built on a 2012 Chevy Silverado body
with a 572 cubic inch Chevy motor backed with a 2

Shocks and riding on 66x43x25 Goodyear tires.
The Equalizer
Chickasha’s Movie on Main
 Chickasha Main Street Association hosted their
Movie on Main event Thursday night on Chickasha
Avenue. The event had been scheduled for June but
was postponed due to inclement weather.
 City of Chickasha employees blocked off the 300
block of Chickasha Avenue and set up the giant
inflatable screen, projector, and sound system.  
 Jay’s Jewelry sponsored Popworth’s Kettle Corn,
whose sweet n’ salty or caramel corn made for the
perfect snack as members of the audience brought
lawn chairs and blankets, sat under the stars and the
nice easterly breeze, and watched The Sandlot. The
Sandlot is a 1993 family classic about the adventures
of a group of nine boys who become friends in 1962
as they play baseball and try to conquer The Beast.
 Special thanks goes to Chickasha Main Street, City
of Chickasha Public Works employees, Jay’s Jewelry,
and Popworth’s Kettle Corn.

Salvation Army partners with energy
companies to help those in need
 July is The Salvation Army’s
Home Energy Aid Month. The
Salvation Army has partnered
with OG&E’s Lend-A-Hand,
ONG Gas’ Share the Warmth,
and PSO’s Light-A-Life
 Last year, more than $404,000
was provided in utility assistance to
9,632 individuals. The number of persons requesting
utility assistance continues to grow each year.
 Imagine being without air conditioning in the
Oklahoma summers or without heat in the winters
when temperatures reach single digits. For many,
such as persons with disabilities, young children
and people with breathing issues, it can be life
 Unfortunately, in most communities we are only
able to help a handful of households per month due to
limited funds available for utility assistance. It is not
uncommon after the first couple of days of the month
to be out of utility assistance funding, yet the calls
keep coming.
 To help assist those in need, utility customers are
encouraged to support energy assistance programs
year-round. The Salvation Army receives between
hundreds to thousands of requests for assistance with
utility bills annually.
 If someone wishes to support the utility assistance
program, a donation marked “Home Energy Aid
Month” may be sent to: The Salvation Army, 2402 S.
16th Street, Chickasha, OK 73018, or they can submit
a donation by checking the box on their utility bill.
