  • DA)--An Enid High School student who brought a BB gun to campus Thursday morning, according Enid Public Schools officials, "will face both disciplinary and legal consequences." No students or staff were harmed. After other students became aware of the BB gun and reported it to a teacher, the student was escorted to the school office, and the gun was found in the student's backpack. An EPS statement said campus police and school administrators still are investigating the incident. According to district policy, students found in possession of a firearm or look-alike firearm on school grounds or during school transportation may be suspended for a period of a year. As for the legal ramifications, the matter will be forwarded to those who work with the county juvenile system and the District Attorney’s Office.

    CC)--The Enid Mayor and Board of Commissioners Thursday approved items related to two new business developments coming to town. Tommy's Express Car Wash and local chain Family Pharmacy were approved to proceed with construction on their separate projects. Based in Holland, Mich., Tommy's Express has car wash locations spread across 18 states. Currently, none are listed in Oklahoma, but plans to open one by Jiffy Trip at the corner of Garriott and Garland. Commissioners approved the construction of public access between Jiffy Trip and the future Tommy's Express. Family Pharmacy had utility and right-of-way easements approved so it can proceed in constructing a new building from the ground up, at the corner of Garriott and 9th. There are three Family Pharmacies in Enid, at the west and east side Jumbo Foods stores and at 915 E Garriott. Commissioners Thursday night also appropriated $1.2 million for the Airport Department, due higher than expected fuel sales.

    JA)--The Garfield County Criminal Justice Authority met Thursday evening and voted after executive session to conduct background checks on potential candidates for the position of jail administrator. According to Enid News and Eagle, the authority voted to go into executive session “for the purpose of discussing the employment, hiring, and appointment of a Jail Administrator for the Garfield County Detention Facility.” The trust met in closed session for nearly an hour.

    NS)--Enid's third annual Night to Shine, a prom experience for people with special needs, is seeking volunteers and donors to help make the event a success. Night to Shine is sponsored nationally by the Tim Tebow Foundation as "an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older," according to a foundation press release. Dalen McVay, board member with Night to Shine in Enid, said this year's event is scheduled for 6:00-9:00 p.m. Feb. 7 at Oakwood Christian Church, 401 N. Oakwood. Entertainment during the event will include a DJ, a separate room with karaoke, homemade desserts and catering donated by Chick-fil-A. The evening gives many of the participants their first chance to enjoy a dance or dressed-up night on the town. While the prom-goers enjoy "Night to Shine," their parents have the opportunity to enjoy the "Parents Prom" at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 215 S. Cleveland. The "Parents Prom" includes a home-cooked meal, courtesy of Enid AM AMBUCS, and a live-stream from "Night to Shine," so parents can see the prom while they relax at a separate venue. There were 113 attendees the first year, 176 last year, and McVay said organizers expect 225 or more kings and queens this year. The expansion requires additional volunteers and donors, because the event is now fully funded by local contributors. McVay said it takes $40 to cover the cost for one attendee, and each king or queen must be accompanied by a buddy. At least 50 additional volunteers are needed for this year’s event. Event volunteers must be at least 16 years old and be able to pass a background check. Donations can be made payable to "Night to Shine Enid" and sent to McVay Law Firm, 211 N. Washington, or Oakwood Christian Church. For more information, to register for the event or volunteer, visit http://nighttoshineenid.com.

    VN)--RSVP of Enid is seeking volunteers from the community to expand the reach of its food commodity box program, which delivers or hands out food to hungry people in need each month. The program in Enid started six years ago, through a U.S. Department of Agriculture program managed by Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. People who are at least 60 years old, whose household income is less than 130% of the poverty level, can receive on the first Monday of each month a 40-pound box of food staples, provided by Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. RSVP of Enid does offer home delivery to some clients who can't get out, mostly in large senior apartment complexes. But for those homebound in individual homes RSVP currently is at its limit for home deliveries, and cannot add more until more volunteers are available. Volunteers serve several hours the first Monday of the month, delivering boxes to addresses around town. Because RSVP of Enid no longer accepts direct federal funding, volunteers no longer have to meet the previous minimum age limit of 55 years old. Anyone interested in volunteering with RSVP of Enid can contact Christy Baker at (580) 233-5914 or Heather Helberg at (580) 237-1447.
