IA)--A Kingfisher woman was hospitalized following a crash Tuesday that left her pinned in her vehicle before being extricated by the Okarche Fire Department. Just after 3:30 Tuesday afternoon, 24 year old Savannah Gilley was northbound on Highway 81 about 3 miles south of Kingfisher, when she failed to slow down for another northbound vehicle in front of her that was slowing down to turn west. Gilley's Dodge Journey struck a 2013 Daimler driven by 35 year old James Jenkins of Cashion. Jenkins was not injured, but after she was removed from her vehicle, Gilley was taken by Air Evac to OU Med Center and admitted in stable but critical condition with head and leg injuries.

KH)--Voters in the Kremlin-Hillsdale school district approved a $2 million bond issue yesterday that will give the school new technologies, plus upgrades to the football and softball fields. It will also pay for the construction of a new multi-purpose building that will be used for grade school recreation, sports practice, and ag shows. The bond issue won’t be funded by additional taxes. Instead, it will come from money earned due to newly installed pipelines and wind turbines in the area.

SP)--Governor Kevin Stitt announced Tuesday that Oklahoma schools following safety protocols, including mask-wearing and social distancing, will be permitted to forgo the mandatory two-week quarantine period for potential COVID-19 exposures. As part of the new policy, schools should continue to require quarantines for exposed students in situations where masking and distancing protocols were not followed. Additionally, the updated quarantine guidance does not apply if the exposure occurs during after-school activities, including sports. Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 must continue to isolate regardless where they contracted the virus or were wearing a mask.
