FO)--There was a B-2 flyover of Enid and Vance Air Force Base this morning just before 11:00. The bomber flew in from the north and passed low over center runway at Vance before doing a loop out west. It is always a cool experience to see the B-2 in flight.

LM)--An Enid man was charged Thursday in Garfield County District Court with one count of lewd or indecent acts to a child under 12. Enid Police Department arrested 35 year-old Jesse Lee Rose following an investigation that began when the department was contacted in February regarding the sexual abuse of a 10-year-old girl last May. Enid police officials said the girl, who does not live in Enid, disclosed the sexual abuse that happened in Enid to a counselor, who then reported it to Oklahoma Department of Human services. Following an investigation, Rose reportedly told police in an interview that he did not recall the incident but was too drunk to remember. Rose was arrested on a warrant for the complaint and booked into Garfield County Detention Facility, where he is being held without bond.
