    SK)--A jury trial has been set for February 2017 for a former Enid man accused of a murder here in 2012. Enid News and Eagle reports 23 year-old Ronnie Eugene Fuston appeared Thursday for district court arraignment. He appeared with his court-appointed attorneys and set several other appearances prior to the trial next year. Fuston was charged in Garfield County in March 2013, in the shooting death of Heath Crites on Dec. 22, 2012. He previously was bound over for trial in another murder case in Oklahoma County. In that case, an Oklahoma City father was found shot to death Oct. 20, 2012, at his apartment. Fuston was bound over on charges of first-degree murder and possession of a firearm with a defaced or mutilated serial number during the commission of a felony following a preliminary hearing Oct. 14-15, 2014. First-degree murder is punishable by death, life in prison or life without parole. The firearm charge is punishable by two to five years in prison and/or a fine of $1,000 to $10,000.

    MD)—Memorial Day’s three-day weekend for many serves as the unofficial start to summer. With that in mind, wear your seatbelt wherever you are going. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reminds us that nearly half of the 21,022 passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2014 were unrestrained. Across the entire country, local and state law enforcement officers will be stepping up their enforcement from today through June 5th, and they will be looking for motorists who aren't wearing their seatbelts.

    VS)—You are invited to bring your family for a visit to the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center this Saturday 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and take in the opening of the exhibit, “Keep ‘em Flying – 75th Anniversary of Vance Air Force Base.” In addition to experiencing the new “Keep ‘em Flying” exhibit, families will learn about ration stamps and ration books that were used during the World War II years. “During World War II, you couldn't just walk into a store and buy whatever you wanted to buy or buy as much as you wanted to buy. All things were rationed; butter, nylons, even gasoline.  The government introduced rationing because certain things were in short supply during the war, and rationing was the only way to make sure everyone got their share,” said educator, Ella Proctor. Family Saturdays are held monthly and are supported in part by a grant from the Cherokee Strip Community Foundation.  The activities provided during Family Saturdays are free with admission to the museum. For more information contact the Heritage Center at 580-237-1907 or www.csrhc.org. The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center is located at 507 S. 4th Street in Enid, Oklahoma.
