Woman dies trying to save her 2 dogs from creek

A woman died Sunday while she was trying to save her dogs after they were swept into a creek’s strong current.  Liudmilla Feldman, 58, and her husband were walking their dogs around 6:30 p.m. when the dogs went into the water. She went in to rescue them and a current dragged her under for about 90 seconds, according to KSTU. >> Read more trending news 'It doesn't take much to lose your balance and fall into this water and be swept down,” Unified police Lt. Dan McConkey told KSTU. 'This creek runs quick, (and) with the runoff it's starting to run really fast.' The Salt Lake City Emergency Management Office warned residents Monday to 'be extra cautious around creeks and rivers this time of year. Keep kids and pets well away from these very cold and swift waters,' according to the Salt Lake City Tribune. Witnesses pulled Feldman from the water and attempted CPR. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The dogs are expected to be OK.

Severe weather threat increases Tuesday night

UPDATE: At 6pm the National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Tulsa, Rogers, Okmulgee, Osage, Pawnie, Creek, Mayes, Washington and Wagoner counties until 2am. ****************************************************************** Green County is bracing for what could be an interesting evening. Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Tulsa say a cold front to our west will provide the spark for strong to severe thunderstorms across northeast Oklahoma. We could see winds up to 70 mph and hail the size of golf balls. Meteorologist Mark Plate, with NWS, predicts the timing of the storms to be somewhere between 9:00 and 11:00pm. KRMG is in constant communication with the National Weather Service and the team of meteorologists with FOX23. Tune to NEWS102.3 and AM740 for the very latest on the severe weather threat. The threat for severe weather will diminish as we move through the overnight hours.  Thunderstorms are also expected on Wednesday along with much cooler temperatures.

Legal battle to stop abandonment, sale of Tulsa’s Helmerich Park continues

Legal battle to stop abandonment, sale of Tulsa’s Helmerich Park continues

Another protest of the city’s abandonment and sale of part of Helmerich Park drew a few dozen people Tuesday, even as the next step in the legal battle was taken by those opposed to the deal. “We filed a second lawsuit, which we filed actually again today, we perfected that lawsuit and filed it today,” former Mayor Terry Young told KRMG Tuesday. “So there are two lawsuits  pending before Judge Jefferson Sellers. He has set a hearing for June 1st on the consolidation of those two lawsuits into one. We basically allege that the city council had no right to sell this land, and demand that the city council act as the duly elected officials of the city to recover this land as city park land.” The new filing drops several allegations of violations of open meetings laws, Young says, because of the difficulty and complexity of proving those claims. Meanwhile, he’s confident that the lawsuit will halt the development until it’s resolved. “It would be quite unusual if it happened, because a lawsuit creates a cloud on the title to the land. And as you know, lenders want to know that clear title exists before they will lend money on a project, even on buying a home. And as long as the lawsuit is pending, either in the district court or in the court of appeals, if we necessarily have to go there - or even to the state supreme court - there’s a cloud on the title. If they were to close with that cloud, it would be very unusual.” Young says the River Parks Authority was created in 1974, with a clear purpose. “The intention (was) that everything between Riverside Drive and the river bank was going to be preserved as open space and operated for park purposes. That’s really the story of all of River Parks, a part of which Helmerich Park is, and it’s our goal to see to it it stays that way.” The council voted March 1st to abandon 8.8 acres of the park. REI Sporting Goods plans to build a retail development on the land.

SB 359 created the Uninsured Vehicle Enforcement Program allowing DAs across the state run to use cameras on either highways, mobile trailers or patrol cars to scan license plates and verify insurance.  Any drivers without insurance will receive a ticket in the mail. The state hopes to have some cameras operational by the end of 2017 but it’s not certain where the first cameras will be.
A woman's body was found in a dumpster behind the Las Americas restaurant at 2118 E 3rd St.  Cops think the woman was homeless, and was likely attacked in the front of the building before being dragged to the dumpster. Investigators believe the woman may have lived in a nearby abandoned house where many homeless find shelter. KRMG news has learned it was a violent attack, and a homicide investigation is underway but will be hampered by the fact Las Americas does not have security camera video. The woman has tattoos officers believe could eventually help identify her. It’s believed the attack happened Monday night but the body wasn’t discovered until employees opened around 8 AM.
A Facebook scam is making its rounds on the internet targeting Lowe’s Home Improvements. The Facebook post claims that Lowe’s is offering $50-off coupons for Mother’s Day. When clicking on the Facebook post, a user-friendly survey will appear on a website that resembles Lowe’s website. However, this fraudulent page is a scam and looking to steal your information. Those who participate have no chance of getting a gift card. There is a survey linked to the scam that reads: Congratulations! You have been selected to take part in our short survey to have a chance to get $50 Coupon!We only have 332 coupons remaining so hurry up! 1/3: Have you ever been at Lowe’s? Yes No Don’t remember Customers are also looking to Lowe’s and asking whether the coupon is valid. Lowe’s said the offer is a phishing scam to gather personal information and they aren’t affiliated with the fraudsters in any way. Please be careful when responding to any pop-up ad either online or via social media; as, more often than not, the offer of gift cards or other prizes to customer’s in the guise of a specific company are set up to get your personal information for nefarious purposes. The scam also requires victims to pass it to their friends, officials say. Here are some tips to help you avoid online coupon scams, according to the Better Business Bureau: Check out who is offering the coupon. Verify whether the coupon is legit by visiting the company’s website. Be cautious of pop-up offers. Read the fine print. Watch out for a reward that’s too good to be true. Pay attention to having to enter personal information to win a gift card. Check to see if the coupon is honored by the store. Be wary of required phone calls. Don’t fall for phony coupons via e-mail.
A cold front is headed our way today. We “should see strong to severe thunderstorms develop along that front and move into the I-44 corridor late this evening,” says Robert Darby at the National Weather Service office in Tulsa. We’re told there could be damaging wind and hail, along with heavy rain that could bring a flooding threat to some areas. A stronger storm system will move through the area on Friday and Saturday, bringing the chance for three to four inches of rain.

Federal judge blocks Trump executive order holding back funds to sanctuary cities

In a blow to efforts by President Donald Trump to crack down on jurisdictions that protect immigrants illegally in the United States, a federal judge in California has issued a nationwide injunction against a plan to withhold federal dollars going to sanctuary cities, dealing the White House another legal setback on a Trump executive action.

“The threat is unconstitutionally coercive,” wrote federal judge William Orrick, who ruled that the Executive had overstepped his authority with this order.

“The Constitution vests the spending powers in Congress, not the President, so the Order cannot constitutionally place new conditions on federal funds,” [More]

President Trump's former national security adviser appears to have failed to seek permission for doing work for foreign governments.
A U.S. district judge said Trump's executive order could cause "irreparable harm" to so-called sanctuary cities.
