    VB)--Enid Police Department is encouraging residents to take steps to secure their vehicles following a rash of reports. Within the last week, the department has taken numerous vehicle burglary reports. All reports indicate the vehicles targeted were left unlocked. “The Enid Police Depart­ment encourages citizens to lock their vehicles and remove all valuable items including cellphones, mon­ey, electronics and firearms,” EPD Sgt. Nick John said. Anyone with information leading to the arrest or prosecution of the burglaries or any crime can report an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at (580) 233-6233, www.enid.org/departments/police or text to 274637, typing “Enid” and a message in the text box. Those submitting a tip could earn a reward up to $1,000 and will not be required to testify nor be identified.

    EM)--Supporters of a proposal to expand Medicaid in Oklahoma say they have enough signatures to put a state question on the ballot next year. The Oklahoman reports that Yes on 802's campaign manager Amber England says the community organization collected the state requirement of 178,000 signatures, which must be verified. The proposed question would amend the state's constitution and expand Medicaid's coverage to adults between ages 18 and 65 whose income does not exceed 133% of the federal poverty level. England said that more signatures will be gathered until the Oct. 28 deadline to serve as a cushion in case someone should challenge the petition. The conservative think-tank Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs challenged the initial plan, but the Oklahoma Supreme Court blocked it.

    TT)--Registration is open for the third annual Toucan Trot 5K, set for Saturday, Nov. 2 to benefit Loaves & Fishes of Northwest Oklahoma. The race is organized and sponsored by the 71st Student Squadron Booster Club at Vance Air Force Base and will begin at 9:00 a.m. just south of the intersection of Independence and Elm in downtown Enid. Theo Moran, with the 71st Student Squadron Booster Club, said the event is a fun way for the students and instructors at Vance to give back to and be engaged with the Enid community. Katie Long, assistant director at Loaves & Fishes, said that kind of community support is crucial to the food resource center's mission. Race organizers are encouraging participants to bring non-perishable food or hygiene items to be donated for Loaves & Fishes, or monetary donations can be made on the race website.

     

    Loaves & Fishes distributed 690,000 pounds of food last year to 5,518 people in need in 2,119 households, thanks in large part to community donations. According to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, about 17 percent of Oklahomans, about 608,000 people, live in poverty, and roughly one in four children in the state suffer food insecurity Long encouraged the public to come and participate in Toucan Trot, and meet some of the Vance students helping to provide that community support. Race signup and more information is available at https://runsignup.com/race/ok/enid/toucantrot. Registration is $25, and all who register by Oct. 22 will be guaranteed a race T-shirt. Race packet pick-up will be at 7:30 a.m. the morning of the race, and in-person registrations also will be accepted then.
