    FC)--A Helena man was killed and two people were critically injured early this morning in a traffic accident in Major County. Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials said just after midnight this morning, 56 year-old James Drawbridge of Helena was driving a pickup southbound on State Highway 58 about a mile south of Fairview, when his vehicle went left of center for an unknown reason. His pickup stuck another pickup pulling a 5th wheel trailer, being driven by 70 year old Thomas Crelly of Stratford, Missouri. Drawbridge was pronounced dead at the scene from injuries sustained in the crash. Thomas Crelly was pinned in his vehicle for 15 minutes before being extricated by the Fairview Fire Department.

    CB)--An Enid woman was arrested Monday night after reportedly firing a gun at a man on East Elm. 44 year-old Jennifer Rebecca Smith was booked Monday night into Garfield County Detention Facility on a complaint of assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Enid Police Department Sgt. Nick John told Enid News and Eagle, at 7:00 p.m. Monday, officers were dispatched to 2104 E. Elm in reference to a weapons call in progress. A man called police saying he and Smith had been arguing. He said Smith told him he was either going to leave or they were both going to be dead. The man said Smith pulled out a silver semiautomatic pistol from her pocket and began waving it around. The man left the residence and Smith allegedly fired two shots at him. He said he believed one of the shots struck the ground. The man got into his vehicle and began to drive away and Smith reportedly fired another shot. The man met with police, telling officers he believed Smith was trying to kill him. Officers went to the residence, and after a short standoff, Smith left the house and was taken into custody. A bullet was found in the home's mail box and a second bullet was found to have impacted the front driver’s side quarter panel of the man's car. A search warrant for the residence was obtained and served. Officers recovered a .380 semiautomatic handgun and shell casings inside the residence, along with other weapons.

    SR)--Collections to Oklahoma's main government operating fund are continuing to outpace the estimate, but state finance officials are cautioning that lower oil prices are expected to start driving some of those collections down. The Office of Management and Enterprise Services reported Tuesday that December collections to the General Revenue Fund totaled $620 million, nearly 9 percent above the monthly estimate. For the first six months of the fiscal year, collections have exceeded the official estimate by nearly 5 percent. But Oklahoma's new chief operating officer, former Sonic Corp. executive John Budd, warns that December collections reflect October production levels of oil, which was then around $70 per barrel. Benchmark crude added 3.2 percent on Tuesday to close at $52.11 a barrel in New York.

    CR)--The  City of Enid has partnered with SeeClickFix to announce a new platform called “Enid Citizen Request Center” that will allow citizens to report quality-of-life issues and request City of Enid services. With the free SeeClickFix mobile app and web tools, Enid citizens will now be able to provide City of Enid staff with pictures, videos, specific descriptions, and valuable information needed to get the job done efficiently. In addition, the SeeClickFix platform provides City of Enid officials with a centralized issue management system to manage issues from creation to resolution engaging Enid citizens throughout the process. This partnership not only allows Enid citizens to report problems, but also to view, comment on, and vote to fix problems submitted by their neighbors. Citizens can even create their own “watch areas” to receive notifications about all the issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests, not just the ones they report. The SEE CLICK FIX mobile app is available for download on Android and iPhone. In addition to the mobile apps, citizens can send reports to the City of Enid’s website [http://www.Enid.org/RequestCenter] or at www.SeeClickFix.com.
