McGregor, a mother of four boys -- an 8-year-old, 4-year-old and 2-year-old twins --  said that she didn't want her children to see her bringing in their gifts through the front door of their apartment as they were in the living room watching TV, so she locked the presents in the van and was going to bring them in Saturday morning.

KCPQ reported that $200 worth of presents were taken away when her gray Honda Odyssey was stolen.

"My car is gone, our car seats are in there, our presents are in there," she told KCPQ. "I have been saving every penny … knowing what my kids really want, having that goal and saving (the money)."

McGregor said in a public Facebook post that her car was stolen "between 1:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m." after she returned from Black Friday shopping. Her plate number is BAW8719.

“I will take it back in any condition. I just need it to run," she said. "It would be nice if the car seats are still in there."

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help McGregor and her sons. It has surpassed its $2,000 goal.

  • It has been 10 years since a microburst storm caused injuries and damage at the Tulsa Oktoberfest. In fact, over two dozen people were injured at the event. Corporal Mark Shelton worked the festival that night and will be out there this weekend.  He says the strong winds played havoc with the tents. “The wind had enough force to actually lift up and force those very heavy polls off their moorings,” Shelton said.  “They made their way through the crowd.” April Kidwell was also there back in 2007 and she says the situation was scary to say the least. “I just happened to look up and the DJ at the time was thrown off of the DJ booth,” Kidwell said.   Organizers tell us they do have a plan ready, if severe weather strikes tonight.
  • If you plan on going to Tulsa Oktoberfest today it would be a good idea to go as early as possible. National Weather Service Meteorologist David Jankowski says Mother Nature will play ball during the daytime in the Tulsa area. “During the day on Saturday, temperatures are looking like they could get back up into the 70s,” Jankowski said.   We can expect to see cloudy skies and the sun will peak out periodically.  Everything will change later in the day.  The Tulsa area could get severe weather.   “The storms that develop during the late afternoon and evening hours  will have the potential for damaging winds and large hail,” Jankowski said.  “There also looks to be potential for a tornado as well.” KRMG Stormcenter will be ready to go if severe weather moves into the area.
  • A study by Business Insider and Foursquare says the most popular fast-food chain in Oklahoma is Taco Bueno. A press release from Bueno says Business Insider and Foursquare took the total number of visits to each restaurant in various fast-food chains and then divided that by the number of restaurants in the respective chain. The first Taco Bueno was in Texas, but their second restaurant ever was opened right here in Tulsa way back in 1972. There are now 64 locations in Oklahoma. And there are 120 more in Colorado, Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
  • A day after Senate approval of a budget outline for 2018 that authorizes expedited work on a tax reform plan- without the threat of a Senate filibuster – House GOP leaders set the table for a vote next week on the budget measure, instead of engaging in House-Senate negotiations that could take several weeks, as Republicans look to generate more momentum for the first major tax reforms since 1986. Friday afternoon, House GOP leaders signaled their plan to simply accept the budget plan passed 51-49 by the Senate, setting a Tuesday meeting of the House Rules Committee, which sets the ground rules for bills on the floor of the House. “We want Americans to wake up in the new year with a new tax code, one that is simple and fair,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan. “Now it is time to meet this moment and deliver real relief to hardworking people.” Approval of the Senate-passed plan would allow tax-writing committees in both the House and Senate to get to work on the actual details of tax reform; what’s been released so far is an outline, but not the fine print. “This is another important milestone for tax reform, and sets the stage for us to pass major tax cuts that will deliver more jobs and higher wages for hardworking Americans all over the country,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. As for Democrats, some feel like they are being set up by the GOP, predicting that Republicans will unveil their tax reform bill, and then demand a vote on it days later. “I am perfectly willing to negotiate,” said Sen. Clare McCaskill (D-MO). “I can’t do it in a vacuum.” “It doesn’t work that way,” McCaskill told reporters. “Why can’t we have a bill?” When you look back at the 1986 Tax Reform Act – that took months to make its way through the House and Senate, and then a conference committee for final negotiations. Need some weekend reading? Here is the link to the explanation of the 1986 Tax Reform Act – it’s only a little under 1,400 pages. It’s a gentle reminder that if you do ‘real’ tax reform – it is a very complicated endeavor.
  • State Attorney General Mike Hunter sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions one day after Attorney General Sessions was in Oklahoma. “We need to start treating the industry from the top down like the criminal enterprises they are,” said Hunter. Attorney General Hunter said the letter’s intent is to open communications to develop a federal and state partnership to combat the opioid epidemic. “There is clear evidence of these companies spending millions of dollars on lobbyists and fraudulent marketing campaigns in order to get these drugs into communities across the nation.” Hunter says the feds could go after the manufacturers under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
