A Delicious Way to Support the National 2-1-1 Day of Dining

When you need help, where do you turn?  In an emergency, you can call 9-1-1.  But, what if you need to find housing, food, mental health assistance, or something that just can’t be handled by an ambulance or fire truck?  You can call  2-1-1.
2-1-1 is a free and easy-to-remember phone number that streamlines the process of matching critical health and human services for the residents of our great community. Over 12,000 people use 2-1-1 each month to connect with housing, family counseling, employment and many more services. This non-profit program is staffed by highly trained and  compassionate specialists ready to help anyone who calls. Dialing 2-1-1 connects callers to trained specialists with access to multi-lingual translations.

When you're looking for a good place to eat, what do you do?  Well, make sure to dine out on February 11th, National 2-1-1 Day (2/11, get it?)...and make sure it's at one of the following fabulous Tulsa restaurants who will be donating a portion of their proceeds on February 11th to the 2-1-1 Hotline.

With a database of thousands of community and government services, the 2-1-1 specialists can identify the right solution to the caller’s problem. 2-1-1 Helpline is a member of the Alliance of Information and Referral Systems (AIRS) and the Oklahoma 2-1-1 Collaborative and is a program of the Community Service Council (CSC), a United Way member agency.  2-1-1 Helpline now serves thirty-seven counties in eastern Oklahoma.

Our mission is to provide community information and access to services through assessment of needs and connection to resources. 

Our visions is to create a comprehensive regional information and referral system which:
·       facilitates access to health and human services for all residents of the region
·       delivers consistent and quality services with professionally trained staff who are supported by appropriate technology
·       advocates for consumers through effective application of 2-1-1 call data and regional human service collaboration
·       is responsive in times of community emergencies

“I am so very pleased and proud that these great establishments have chosen to honor and support 2-1-1 on National 2-1-1 Day.  These companies understand the caring and efficient way that 2-1-1 connects callers to community assistance they are often desperate to find,” said Jim Lyall, 2-1-1’s Director.

More information about the 2-1-1 Hotline is available at 211tulsa.org.

  • If you have outdoor plans for today, there will be no need to keep your eyes on the sky. National Weather Service Meteorologist Mark Plate says conditions will remain pleasant throughout the day in the Tulsa area. “It should still be a pretty nice day,” Plate said.  “Partly cloud skies, with the high temperature in the upper 80s.  Relatively low humidity values and light winds.” The low Sunday night will be around 63 degrees. We’ll see more of the same to start the work week.  NWS reports sunny skies though Wednesday and highs will remain in the upper 80s.  
  • If you’re carrying trafficking amounts of drugs, it’s probably not a good idea to drive through a police barricade.   Rufus Newsome learned that lesson the hard way Saturday night, when he reportedly drove through a barricade at the Tulsa officer-involved shooting scene.  This happened around 9:35 p.m., near 3rd and Garnett.  Police say Newsome was driving at a high-rate of the speed after passing the barricade and could have hit multiple pedestrians.  Eventually, he stopped and tried his luck on foot.   “Caught the suspect and the suspect resisted by pulling his hands away,” police said.  “As he was in custody, he spit two times on (officer’s name redacted).” Officers recovered a trafficking amount of cocaine base.   Newsome has been booked into the Tulsa County Jail.  
  • A suspect is dead, following an officer-involved shooting Saturday night near 4th and Garnett. Tulsa police report a pursuit stopped in the area and a suspect tried to flee on foot.   KRMG’s told he ran to a home, tried to kick in the door and then reportedly pulled out a gun.  During this time, he was shot by officers.   Neighbors we spoke to were concerned because they weren't sure what had happened. “All of a sudden we heard the gunshots,” a witness said.  “We didn’t know what was going on.” So far, no names have been released. We do know the suspect was said to be riding in a stolen car. KRMG will update the story when more information comes into the newsroom.
  • Responding to concerns about personal security for lawmakers after last week’s gun attack at a Congressional baseball practice, U.S. House leaders are moving to provide extra money to members for protection back home, as well as new funding to bolster the work of police and security officials on Capitol Hill. Under a plan approved by a House spending subcommittee on Friday, the Congress would provide an extra $7.5 million next year to the Capitol Police for an “increased security posture” around the Capitol, along with $5 million to the House Sergeant at Arms to help with security for lawmakers back in their districts. “We are taking a new fresh look at security,” said Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS), the Chairman of subcommittee that deals with funding for the Legislative Branch. Our FY18 Legislative Branch funding bill increases efficiency & transparency in Congress, enhances security for Members & our constituents. pic.twitter.com/FI36tF2XeH — Rep. Kevin Yoder (@RepKevinYoder) June 22, 2017 “The tragic events of June 14 weigh heavily on these deliberations,” said Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ), the Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, which could vote on the extra money as early as this next week. Also being put into motion is a separate plan to funnel an extra $25,000 to each member of the House – about $11 million in all – to help them increase security back in their districts. “The scariest part for us is there used to be this impression by the public that we all had security everywhere we went,” said Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH). “Now, everyone knows that isn’t the case,” Ryan added, as he lent his support to the extra funding for security as well. The money in this budget bill would not take effect until the new fiscal year – which starts October 1 – so, House leaders are ready to okay extra money immediately for members worried about security back in their districts. Roll Call newspaper reported that could be approved in coming days by the House Administration Committee. Yoder said Congressional leaders are also waiting to see if money raised in campaign contributions for House elections could be put to use for security as well. “Pending an FEC (Federal Election Commission) decision, we’re also looking at whether campaign funds could be used to continue to support security upgrades at personal residences,” Yoder added.
  • An unknown aged girl went to the hospital with burns to her legs, following an overnight house fire. KRMG’s told the fire started around 2:40 a.m., at a residence on West 50th Court North. The homeowner says he was able to get his daughter, grand daughter and sleeping brother out of the house. So far, firefighters haven't released a cause for the fire.  The homeowner believes fumes from a gas can in the garage may have cause the blaze.
