    RH)--OG&E has asked for a $92.5 million rate increase that they plan to spread across all of their customers. They are asking for the rate increase to offset fuel costs that they had to lower in 2015 and say that they haven’t had a rate increase since 2012. Officials say the increase would raise rates by 4.9% or about $7.20 on each individual bill.

A hearing for the proposed rate increase is going up in front of a judge for the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and should take up to a couple of weeks.

    EM)--A former Kay County jail employee has been jailed, accused of stealing $363,000 from the inmate commissary fund. 42 year-old Melissa Sprueill is accused of embezzling the cash from the over a five year period.  She was caught after the state auditor looked into the books. According to News 9, Sprueill told police she stole the money to feed a gambling habit. State Auditor Gary Jones said his office only looked back five years, but he said there could be a lot more money missing because Sprueill worked at the jail much longer than that and was in charge of several accounts.  His office plans to return to Kay County to look deeper into the books.
