Authorities said 54 year old Kenneth Bugg was driving a pickup on 16th street, ½ mile south of Longhorn Trail around 5:00 Friday afternoon when he lost control. He crossed the center line, drove off the roadway, and went into a broad slide, then struck a tree. He wasn't wearing a seat belt. Investigating officers noted an odor of alcohol.

    LC)—The city of Enid saw a decrease in crimes classified by the federal government as class one crimes between 2013 and 2014.  Class one offenses are homicide, rape, robbery, burglary, larceny, auto theft and assault. The Enid Police Department is required to submit the statistics, referred to as Unified Crime Reports, to the FBI. According to the Enid News and Eagle, Enid Police Captain Jack Morris contributes the decrease in class one offenses and the increase in arrests to the hard work of officers and detectives within the department. And they hard work never ends. Morris said class one doesn't count the drug and narcotics arrests made for violations of city ordinances.

    TULSA, Okla. (AP) — As Oklahoma thaws out from a weekend snowstorm, much of the state is due for a warmup, then another shot of winter this week. Forecasters say most of Oklahoma will see temperatures hit the 50s and 60s Tuesday before a cold front enters later that evening. The National Weather Service says as the frigid air sweeps through the state, rain, sleet and light snow are possible late Tuesday and into early Wednesday. The wintry mix is expected to transition to snow on Wednesday, as cold air continues to spill into the Southern Plains. Forecasters say it's too early to tell how much accumulation will occur, but warn that impacts to travel will be possible. The wintry weather will move out of the state by Thursday.

    PONCA CITY, Okla. (AP) — The parents of an Oklahoma State University assistant women's basketball coach killed in an Arkansas plane crash settled a wrongful death claim for $250,000, according to Kay County records. The Oklahoman reported today the parents of Miranda Serna reached a confidential settlement with the pilot's insurance company, but details became public when her divorced parents disagreed on how to split the money. Kay County Judge Philip A. Ross awarded Nettie Herrera of New Mexico, 70 percent, citing her constant companionship with her daughter. John Serna did not appeal the ruling. Serna and head coach Kurt Budke died in Nov. 2011, while on a recruiting trip. The pilot and his wife also died. Lawyers say Budke's widow also reached a confidential settlement.

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A new report suggests economic growth is ahead for nine Midwestern and Plains states. The survey report issued Monday says the overall Mid-America Business Conditions Index climbed to 57.0 in February from 54.8 in January. Creighton University economist Ernie Goss oversees the survey, and he says the regional growth is likely although areas "linked closely to the energy sector, including ethanol, are experiencing pullbacks in economic activity." The survey results from supply managers are compiled into a collection of indexes ranging from zero to 100. Survey organizers say any score above 50 suggests economic growth, while a score below that suggests decline. The survey covers Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
