    DA)--An Enid man was bound over for trial Thursday morning on felony murder and assault with a dangerous weapon charges. Beki Bajo Jr. was bound over by Special District Judge Jason Seigars after the court heard testimony from two witnesses during a preliminary hearing. Enid News and Eagle reports Bajo was charged with first degree-felony murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Bajo was hospitalized Feb. 18, following a fatality head-on collision on U.S. 81, just north of Waukomis, which ended a pursuit with Waukomis Police Department officers. The crash killed a second driver John Matousek. Bajo was ordered to ap­­pear next on Oct. 3 before Associate District Judge Tom Newby for district court arraignment. Bajo faces life in prison or life without parole on the murder charge. Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty. Bajo also faces up to 10 years in prison or up to a year in county jail on the assault charge.

    NT)--Construction of a new terminal at Enid Woodring Regional Airport will begin next year. Woodring Director Dan Ohnesorge said during an Enid City Commission study session earlier this week, the new terminal will change the face of the airport dramatically. According to Ohnesorge, while working on the design, four newly constructed terminals were visited, and officials sought input from corporate pilots and airport tenants. The design will separate the business area and the restaurant. Some of the restaurant improvements will involve a larger, more efficient kitchen. There's a need for 24-hour access to a larger and better equipped pilot's lounge. The current lounge is small and can only be accessed through the terminal, when the terminal is open. There also would be 24-hour access to the lobby. A joint flight planning room, which will be used by Vance Air Force Base personnel, will be included in the new design as well as a dedicated conference and/or safe room. The budget for the 7,300-square-foot terminal is $1.8 million. $500,000 is a donation, the airport is receiving another $500,000 from Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission, another $500,000 will come out of the airport fund and officials are trying to get $300,000 from the Oklahoma Strategic Military Planning Commission for the joint use room. The new terminal will be constructed back into the parking lot area, behind the current terminal. Once it is constructed and moved into, the current terminal will be demolished. The project may be put out for bid in January or February 2018, and ground probably will be broken by the end of April, with an expected take nine month build time.

    FS)--With flu season upon us, the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) announced county health departments will offer flu vaccine statewide beginning Monday, Oct. 2. Flu vaccination is recommended each year for everyone 6 months of age and older. When more people are vaccinated against the flu, there is less opportunity for flu to spread in families, schools and communities. Cases of influenza hospitalizations have already been reported for this season.

    In addition to getting a flu vaccination, people 65 years of age and older, and those with chronic health conditions, should ask their health care provider about being vaccinated against pneumococcal pneumonia. County health departments will accept SoonerCare, Medicare, all private health insurance,  cash, checks, or credit cards as payment for flu vaccine. For more information, call a local county health department or visit the OSDH website atwww.health.ok.gov. Media inquiries should be directed to Jamie Dukes, Office of Communications, at (405) 271-5601.
