    NR)--GEFCO officials have released the name of an employee who died after an accident Tuesday. 28 year-old Derek Steier was struck by a heavy metal frame in the GEFCO factory in the 2200 block of S. Van Buren and suffered serious injury. Steier, a welder, later died at a hospital. According to a news release from GEFCO Inc., GEFCO's safety team and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating the accident. Enid Fire Marshal Ken Helms said Enid Fire Department responded just after 11:15 Tuesday morning. According to the report, a crane was being used to lift a heavy piece of equipment when it slid as it was being lifted and crushed Steier against a work table. It was the second fatal accident at GEFCO this year. 52 year-old Eriberto Rivas died in February after being crushed between two pieces of equipment being loaded onto a trailer at GEFCO Inc.

    KP)--Phase 2 of the Kaw Water Pipeline project has concentrated on engineering issues and financing options. And, as that comes to a close, Phase 3 will concentrate on getting permission from land owners between Kaw Lake and Enid to cross their lands with the pipeline. That includes tribal lands, but so far, officials said communications between the City of Enid and the State of Oklahoma representing those tribes, has been positive.

    Tuesday night, with the recommendation of Engineering Director Chris Gdanski Enid City Commissioners approved using a 36-inch pipeline with no booster pump station and a 10.5 million gallon per day water treatment plant with an estimated cost of $315 million. As part of the funding plans, commissioners approved applying $20 million in financial assistance from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Loan Program and $44.4 million in financial assistance from the Oklahoma Water Resources Board.

    SS)—The public is invited to experience the Safer Street Simulation beginning Thursday. Enjoy live music and hot dogs in the Breezeway in the 200 block of West Randolph provided by NWOAR, and see what you think about our 1.5-day experiment. Downtown Enid streets are some of the widest in the state, which makes them more dangerous and intimidating to cross. This results in less walking to shop at more locations. Creating an atmosphere of safety could result in more healthy transportation, a reduced chance of accidents and more money spent in our local businesses. Come see this in action 6:00-9:00 pm on Thursday.
