  • Today is not only the first day of Fall. This past week, Governor Mary Fallin declared September 22 to be National Hunting and Fishing Day in our state. Pleased to sign a proclamation declaring tomorrow as National Hunting and Fishing Day in Oklahoma. A great way to celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day would be to visit the state Department of Wildlife Conservation’s annual Wildlife Expo in Guthrie. https://t.co/4Vc5Ze4AjBpic.twitter.com/MlcsWGReV8 — Governor Mary Fallin (@GovMaryFallin) September 21, 2018 Will you be going hunting or fishing this weekend?  Let us know in the comments.   Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation link
  • Investigators in Claremore are searching for the people involved in shooting a BB gun at businesses and cars this past week. KRMG has learned one business had to board up the entrance after windows were shot out.  Multiple cars also suffered damage.   Police tell us they are worried citizens could get hurt if the vandals are not caught. “Shooting a BB gun at somebody, any kind of gun at somebody, obviously can be dangerous,” an officer said.   The latest report happened on Thursday when someone shot at an urgent care. Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call the Claremore Police Department. Claremore Police Department link
  • A Delta Airlines flight heading from Salt Lake City to Orlando made an emergency landing in Oklahoma City on Friday because of an intoxicated passenger. A flight attendant tells Newsok.com 28-year-old Derek Maas became verbally abusive with the crew and head-butted an employee. It wasn’t the passenger’s best idea.  The attendant then struck Maas and multiple passengers restrained him. Police state Maas acted out more once inside a police car.  However, he apparently went from aggressive to depressed pretty quickly.  Officers heard Maas state 'he wished he was black so that we would just shoot him and he could film it and show the world about the unfairness.' No word on how long Maas’ layover will be at the jail in OKC.  
  • A 22-year-old woman is said to be in serious, but stable condition following a single-vehicle crash in Tulsa County on Friday. The wreck happened around 3:31 p.m. on I244 near the 23rd Street bridge. According to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol press release, the Ford Explorer departed the roadway for an unknown reason. “Struck a guardrail, and rolled an undetermined number of times before coming to rest upright in the outside lane of I244,” the press release read.  “The driver was ejected an unknown distance during the rollover sequence.” She was transported to St. John Hospital with injuries to her “head, trunk internal, trunk external, arm and leg.” The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
  • Officially at the airport, the Tulsa area received 2.34 inches of rain on Friday and there is more in the forecast for today. Parts of Tulsa County received a whole lot more rain.  National Weather Service Meteorologist Mark Plate breaks down who received the most. “In the Tulsa area, the heaviest rain was in the southern part of the city,” Plate said.  “It was in the south Tulsa, Broken Arrow and Bixby areas where four to six inches fell.   Statewide, areas around Ada were slammed by showers.  Plate tells us Fittstown received close to 14 inches of rain.  Road Flooding:  Showers in south Tulsa, Broken Arrow and Bixby caused multiple closures in the area. Police confirm South Yale Avenue between 61st and 51st was closed for some time because of water over the road. The same was true for 101st and Garnett in Broken Arrow. The roads have since been reopened. Savastano's at 106th and Memorial in Bixby announced on their Twitter page they were closed due to flooding.
  • Don't put away those umbrellas just yet. National Weather Service Meteorologist Sarah Corfidi says we have a chance for more showers in the Tulsa area today.  Right now, the NWS is predicting a 40 percent chance of rain.   “For Tulsa, it’s going to be mostly cloudy, with some showers still in the area,” Corfidi said.  “The high will be in the low 70’s.” Today is the first day of fall, but the temperature will be below normal for this time of year in our area.  Corfidi tells us the normal high is close to 82 degrees. Any rain we see today should stop by the evening hours.  The low Saturday night will be close to 60 degrees.
  • QUICK FACTS:  Oklahoma optometrists say they are planning to vote against State Question 793 in November. The Oklahoma Association of Optometric Physicians focused on the latest technology and voting against 793 during their fall convention in downtown Tulsa today. OAOP members told FOX23 that State Question 793 would keep the Oklahoma State Board of Optometry from overseeing any clinics inside locally owned corporate stores. The new law could require local optometrists to run their clinics differently by reporting to corporations instead of the Oklahoma State Board of Optometry. Optometrists across Oklahoma are fighting against State Question 793, which they say is harmful to clinics in Oklahoma.   The Oklahoma Association of Optometric Physicians focused on the latest technology and voting against State Question 793 in November at their fall convention in downtown Tulsa. OAOP members told FOX23 that State Question 793 would keep the Oklahoma State Board of Optometry from overseeing any clinics inside locally owned corporate stores. They also said the law could cause a situation where corporate leadership of the store could require a doctor to prescribe eyeglasses and contacts when someone didn't need them in order to meet a sales quota. Another potential problem is that an eye clinic becomes too expensive for a retailer, so they could cut the number of patients they see each month or year. Oklahoma is one of three states that doesn't allow eye care clinics in chain retail stores. An Oklahoma city optometrist, Dr. Selina McGee, told FOX23 a big box store is not a health clinic. Her clinic has a high standard for the care they provide and has to report to the state board.
