  • A stabbing is under investigation by Tulsa police. Nathan Evans is accused of stabbing his partner at the Alden Apartments near 11th and Denver. Tulsa Police Corporal Brandon Davis said, “The victim told us that they had both been doing meth together prior to this and for no reason the suspect started freaking out on him and just started stabbing him.”   The victim is expected to recover from the attack that happened around 5 a.m. Thursday. Evans faces charges that include domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
  • A woman's vehicle is stolen while she makes a stop at a Quiktrip.   The victim had gone inside the store near 21st and Garnett around 11 p.m. Wednesday but when she returned, both her car and her dog that was inside it had been stolen. A TPD officer saw the car northbound on Memorial Drive two miles away. He followed the driver to a residence near 5000 East Newton Street. The driver and his passenger ran into the house where five people were inside. The driver was arrested at the scene. No one was hurt.
  • A Walgreens store is an armed robbery scene early Thursday.   The robber entered the store at 3112 South Harvard Avenue at five this morning where he wanted cash. Employees are trained to hand over the money and take no chances on getting hurt. The clerk said the man had a handgun. He was wearing a bandana, along with a black hoodie over a white tee-shirt. Officers swarmed the area and believe the man may have gone behind the grocery store next door and vanished.
  • President Donald Trump marks six full months in office on Thursday, still pressing lawmakers in the House and Senate to act on a bill to overhaul the Obama health law, as the Republican Congress continues to struggle on a variety of fronts to produce a major legislative victory for Mr. Trump, with no action yet on tax cuts, a balanced budget or government reforms. But the President’s backers argue that while his agenda is not moving at top speed in the Congress, he has had successes in some areas. Let’s take a look at where Mr. Trump stands: 1. Biggest Trump success remains Justice Gorsuch. Ask just about anyone on Capitol Hill about the President’s record so far, and they will probably talk about getting Neil Gorsuch on the U.S. Supreme Court. For conservatives, this is a very big deal, and the few rulings that Gorsuch was involved in at the end of the 2016-2017 term seemed to indicate that he will be a justice in the mold of his predecessor, Antonin Scalia. The best part about this achievement is that Gorsuch is only 49 years old – he will turn 50 next month – meaning he could be on the U.S. Supreme Court, and leave his imprint on the law, for several decades. Any conservative who is not celebrating @realDonaldTrump for the supreme court justice Neil Gorsuch is a hypocrite — Benjamin (@BenjCharis) July 19, 2017 2. Crackdown on illegal immigration yields big changes. In terms of policy so far, the President’s tough line on enforcing existing immigration laws, and deporting illegal immigrants has already been a success for the President. As of the end of June, the feds had arrested almost 66,000 people for being in the U.S. illegally – 48,000 of those people had been convicted of a crime. “73 percent — of everyone we have arrested were criminals, something that’s been lost in the messaging on immigration enforcement,” said Tom Homan, the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The numbers from along the border are also a big change, and something that most Republicans see as a big plus for the President.

Rolling back Executive Branch regulations. In terms of administrative change, just by being in charge, President Trump has forced change in various federal agencies, rolling back or slowing or changing a host of rules that had been planned during the Obama Administration. Congress also got in on the action, by approving 14 different resolutions that overturned specific regulations approved late in the Obama Administration, which is really the most significant action by lawmakers so far in terms of legislation. Getting rid of regulations is a big winner with Trump supporters, many of whom believe the Obama Administration was strangling business with all sorts of red tape and government requirements. Remove burdensome business regulations. When their operating costs go down and profits go up, they will hire more Americans. Trump gets it. — norcalgunguy (@norcalgunguy) July 13, 2017 4. Trump shakes things up at the White House. The televised White House briefing has become an endangered species over recent months, as the President’s communications team has seemingly decided to keep the daily briefing off TV. (I’m not complaining about that – they’re in charge, and they set the rules.) Originally, the Trump Team was going to shake things up in the briefing by bringing in more conservative voices to the briefing room, and by using “Skype seats” to bring in questions from outside of Washington, in hopes of generating friendlier queries about the Trump agenda. But those efforts didn’t make much of an impact at all. Refusing to call on CNN or the New York Times didn’t have much of an impact, either. And not televising the briefing is a dual-edged sword – yes, you don’t have reporters possibly playing ‘gotcha’ with their questions – but you don’t give your own administration an elevated voice on TV, either. The last on camera White House briefing was June 29. — Hunter Walker (@hunterw) July 18, 2017 5. Trump Agenda still on slow-motion in Congress. One thing that President Trump has not been able to do is translate his election win into action by lawmakers in the Congress on major agenda items. Yes, the GOP passed a series of special resolutions to repeal certain regulations of the Obama Administration. But health care remains in limbo at this point, and there has been no action as yet on tax reform, the Trump $1 trillion infrastructure plan, lawmakers are ignoring much of the President’s budget, and no votes have been taken yet on money for the wall along the border with Mexico. Again, we are only six months in to the Trump Administration, so there is still a lot of time to get things done. But there is also the chance that Mr. Trump may have a skimpy record of legislative achievements as the calendar turns in the rest of 2017. This is one area where the Trump team – and GOP leaders in Congress – need to buckle down, and figure out how to turn things in the right direction. 6. Russia probe not going away anytime soon. With his latest interview for the New York Times showing again how the Russia probe deeply aggravates him, President Trump will not be able to escape the matter in coming months. Next week, his son-in-law Jared Kushner is set to appear before two Senate committees, his son Donald Jr. will be at one hearing, along with Kushner and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. Also hanging over everything is the probe being led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who is assembling a top notch team of prosecutors and investigators. The President’s own frustration has boiled over repeatedly on this matter, especially on Twitter, and in many ways, that has only expanded the investigation because of things Mr. Trump has said. Whether you think it’s right or not, Russia will continue to be a big deal.

Trump’s impulsive nature drives his Presidency. Just as his interview last night with the New York Times made headlines that advisers probably had not planned for, Mr. Trump’s ways often seem to overshadow the political debates on major issues – like in recent days on health care, as the President has been all over the road on the issue. One day he was for repeal and replace, then he was advocating straight repeal, then saying he would do nothing and let the current system collapse, and then again endorsing efforts at repeal and replace. The back and forth has often left GOP lawmakers a bit exasperated, worried that the President isn’t using the bully pulpit as effectively as possible. Mr. Trump had a very strong statement on Wednesday on health care – but those have been rare in recent months.

  • A deadly highway crash in McClain County near Oklahoma City is hitting home for a Tulsa family.   Northbound traffic on I-35 had to be closed for several hours Monday afternoon after a 2014 GMC Yukon hauling seven people slammed into the back of a semi near Purcell.  State troopers tell us the semi had slowed down and had almost stopped before the SUV collided with it around 3:14 p.m.  Three people died, including the driver 40-year old Erin VanHorn and two passengers in her vehicle ages 10 and 11.  The victims were returning to Tulsa from Turner Falls near Sulphur, Oklahoma. Four other children ages 13 and under who were passengers in VanHorn’s vehicle were taken to the hospital.  The children killed were identified as 13-year old Beck Ketterman and 10-year old Zach Van Horn.  The injured children were identified as Izzy Ketterman, Lizzie Edwards and Lauren Van Horn. 13-year old Lizzie Edwards was in critical condition early Wednesday at the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. We’re told she died later yesterday. The driver of the 2014 Freightliner semi has been identified as 45-year old Arash Zarezadeh of Las Vegas, Nevada.  He was not injured. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the investigation is ongoing. The Tulsa Soccer Club released a statement about the victims, some of whom played in the league: 'As you may be aware our soccer families have just been struck with some terrible news regarding a vehicle that happened yesterday. It is with deep sadness that we inform you of three lives that have been lost including Beck Kitterman, Erin VanHorn and Zach VanHorn. Izzy Kitterman, Lizzie Edwards have gone through surgery and remain in critical condition. Lauren has received surgery for multiple fractures and is expected to recover. Please pass the word that we will use the fence along All-Star Field 7 as a Memorial for everyone to show their thoughts and prayers. We have also set up child grievance counselors for anyone that needs help processing this which should be done soon.' Jenks Public Schools released a statement about the crash: 'We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Jenks’ parent Erin Van Horn and two Jenks Public Schools’ students. Our most heartfelt condolences are extended to all families affected by this tragic accident, and our thoughts are with those students who are recovering both mentally and physically from their injuries. We wish them all a quick and complete recovery, and we urge everyone to respect the privacy of the families during this difficult time. Because law enforcement officials have not released the names of the students, and out of respect to the families, Jenks Public Schools will not be referencing or discussing the names of those students involved.'  The Jenks Athletics Facebook page posted a tribute to the family.
