    OT)-- Bert Mackie, vice chairman of Security National Bank in Enid, will serve as vice chairman of Oklahoma Tomorrow, which is designed to educate the public and Legislature about the importance of adequately funding Oklahoma’s colleges and universities. Higher education funding was cut by more than $153 million during the 2016 legislative session. The 16 percent cut and desire to cultivate a skilled workforce led to the formation of the organization. Oklahoma Tomorrow was founded by private-sector leaders concerned about Oklahoma’s shortage of nurses, IT workers and other science, technology, engineering and mathematics professionals. Higher education is critical to creating a skilled workforce. Organizers said Oklahoma Tomorrow brings together the state’s leading business minds, men and women who are concerned about the critical mission of public higher education and who want to ensure continued investment in Oklahoma’s future. The board consists of 16 members, with statewide representation. A second local man, Brad Gungoll, principal of Gungoll Jackson Law Firm, Enid/Oklahoma City, also serves on the board.

    TR)--Three teens were arrested after an Enid woman was reportedly robbed at gunpoint by the trio after giving one of them a haircut. Enid Police Captain Jack Morris said the department received a 911 call just before 8:15 Friday night concerning a robbery at a residence in the 2200 block of East Ash. According to the police report, the victim said she gave a haircut to 18 year-old Jose Ramirez, of Blackwell, who then went outside to get money to pay. He returned inside with two boys, a 17-year-old and 16-year-old. The 17-year-old removed about $400 from the cash drawer while the 16-year-old pointed a handgun at the woman. Morris said the three then fled in a small pickup. When the woman told her husband she had been robbed, he got into his vehicle and chased the suspects. He hit the back of their vehicle, causing it to crash into a ditch at U.S. 412 and 42nd Street. According to the report, when police arrived at the scene of the crash, they arrested Ramirez and the 16-year-old. The 17-year-old was found at an Enid residence and also arrested. The gun used in the robbery was found later at the intersection by an EPD K-9 unit. All three teens were arrested on complaints of first-degree robbery.

    BB)--Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center begins its 2017 Brown Bag Lecture series Wednesday with a presentation on German-Russian immigrant Pauline Schlegel Lehl by Eric J. Schmaltz, professor of history at Northwestern Oklahoma State University.  Lehl settled in Ingersoll and Alva in 1913. From 1913 to 1937, Pauline received 180 letters, mostly in Russian, from relatives in Tsarist Russia and the Soviet Union. This exchange preceded World War I and ended with Soviet dictator Stalin’s Great Terror. Sometimes through subversive techniques and coded language to avoid censors, the letters related to outsiders what was happening inside the old country. This Brown Bag Lecture presentation will be Wednesday in the Humphrey Heritage Village Church. The presentation is free and open to the public. Guests are welcome to bring their lunch. For more information about CSRHC programs, call (580) 237-1907 or visit www.csrhc.org.
