  • SG)--An Enid man charged in connection to dozens of drive-by shootings in November waived his right to a preliminary hearing this morning. According to the Enid News and Eagle, 30 year-old Anthony M. Jackson appeared in Garfield County District Court with his attorney, Eddie Wyant. Jackson was set for a preliminary hearing on 10 felony charges of drive-by shooting and a single felony count of cruelty to animals. Jackson was arrested Nov. 18 after shooting dozens of vehicle windows and a dog. The injured dog had to have a leg amputated but survived. Following his arrest, Wyant released a letter saying his client was upset that he had been fired recently from an auto-glass repair business. Jackson has been held in lieu of $500,000 bond since his arrest.

    BI)—Polls will be open 7:00am to 7:00pm Tuesday as Enid voters go to the polls to decide the fate of an Enid Public Schools bond issue. Proponents say the $92.8 million bond issue will finance classroom additions, building improvements, safety and security, transportation, technology, fine arts and athletics. Legally, bond money cannot go toward teacher salaries or administrative fees. Enid Superintendent Darrel Floyd said the $90 million bond issue in 2010 was phase one of district improvement, including the construction of Garfield and Prairie View elementary schools, and this bond is phase two. “If you take the 2010 bond package and overlay it with this bond proposal and add them together, 37 percent went to new schools or will go to new classrooms, 37 percent to safety and security, 11 percent to athletics, 7 percent to fine arts, 5 percent to technology and 3 percent to transportation,” Floyd said.
