    HH)--Harold Hamm, founder of Continental Resources, will step down as CEO of the company and remain as executive chairman. The change will be effective Jan. 1. William Berry has been appointed chief executive officer, and President Jack Stark will assume the additional role of chief operating officer. Hamm started Continental in Enid 52 years ago. The company now is based in Oklahoma City. Continental is the dominant oil producer in the Bakken of North Dakota and the dominant oil producer in Oklahoma from its SCOOP and STACK assets. Production has reached record levels, and the company is routinely the lowest cost operator among its oil-weighted peers. Hamm, an Enid High School graduate and one of 13 children, started his company with one truck and built it through the service sector of the energy industry. Continental moved to Oklahoma City in 2012.

    DS)--The Holiday Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign kicks off today. The Enid Police Department and the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO) are teaming up with more than 60 other law enforcement agencies across the state to make sure everyone has a safe holiday. The goal is simple; keep impaired drivers from killing themselves, and innocent people, on Oklahoma roadways. According to newly released data from the OHSO, 331 people were killed in alcohol and/or drug-related crashes in 2018. That's the equivalent of a fully loaded jetliner crashing with no survivors, all killed by someone's choice to drive under the influence. The annual enforcement campaign begins on Dec. 13 and runs through Jan. 1, 2020.

    FA)--The American Indian Cultural Center and Museum will have a new name when it opens in May 2021. The museum will be called the First Americans Museum, paying tribute to the native peoples and tribes whose cultures it showcases. After years of stagnation over funding difficulties, the museum, which is located off Interstate 40, was an active construction zone Thursday. The new name is more historically accurate, said the museum’s director, James Pepper Henry. Mayor David Holt compared the $175 million project to bringing the Smithsonian to Oklahoma City. "We are at the center of a state that hosts 39 sovereign nations and we have not historically offered you many opportunities here in our city limits to experience that culture. And that is going to obviously change in a critical way,” he said. The museum was originally a state-funded project. But it was delayed for years when funding ran out. Construction resumed through a city-state-tribal partnership, in addition to private funds.

    AT)--With only a few days left to collect gifts, Salvation Army of Enid is behind on its Angel Tree program, and is asking for the community's help to provide for children in need. Maj. John Edmonds, with Salvation Army of Enid, said most of the Teen Angels and Silver Bells, representing teenagers and seniors in need, have been adopted. But, Edmonds said, more than 200 younger children enrolled in the Angel Tree program this year have yet to be adopted, and gifts need to be returned by 8:00 p.m. on Saturday. Edmonds said it doesn't take long to purchase gifts for an angel, and people usually stick to around $50 per angel. Angels can be selected at and gifts returned to the retail space south of the food court at Oakwood Mall, 4125 W. Garriott. The Salvation Army location at Oakwood Mall is open 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. through Saturday. Angels and collection boxes are available at both Walmart locations and Atwoods in Enid. Angel trees also are available at: TLC Dental, 1710 W. Willow; Scheffe Prescription Shop, 127 E. Randolph; Evans Drug and Hearing Aid Center, 1106 W. Willow; and Evans Express Pharmacy, 110 N. Oakwood. Angel tree gifts must be returned to the Oakwood Mall location or one of the collection boxes by 8 p.m. Dec. 14. Salvation Army of Enid relies on community monetary donations to purchase gifts for any children whose angels are not adopted. Monetary donations can be sent to the Salvation Army of Enid, 516 N. Independence, Enid, OK, 73701, or delivered there 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. weekdays, or call (580) 237-1910.

    DB)--Community Development Support Association (CDSA), 114 S. Independence, is seeking public help to restock the shelves of its diaper bank. The CDSA Diaper Bank provides free diapers to low-income families no more than four times per year. Parents of newborns receive 100 diapers, while parents of older babies and toddlers receive 50 diapers per visit. In addition to the diapers and wipes, CDSA Family Support Services Coordinator Diedra Williamson said families coming through the diaper bank also receive screenings to see if they could benefit from other CDSA or community services. Since it opened in January 2017, the CDSA Diaper Bank has handed out about 50,000 diapers a year. Currently, the diaper bank is low in supply or out of diapers in sizes 4, 5 and 6.Donations made payable to Community Development Support Association (CDSA), with 'Diaper Bank' in the memo line, can be mailed or delivered to 114 S. Independence, Enid OK 73701, or donate online at http://www.cdsaok.org. In addition to donations of cash and diapers, Williamson said CDSA "can always use volunteers to help repackage and stock the diapers." She said packaging and stocking the diapers often is a volunteer opportunity for church and civic groups. For more information, call CDSA at (580) 242-6131.
