BS)--An Enid Police Department sergeant has been suspended from police duties and reassigned to an administrative position pending the outcome of criminal and administrative investigations. EPD officials said Sgt. Kevin Everley was arrested early Friday morning on complaints of driving under the influence of alcohol and leaving the scene of an accident. He was off-duty at the time of his arrest. Everley was hired in September 2014, and has served as a patrolman, detective and was serving as a B-Shift Patrol sergeant. The investigation results will be forwarded to the Garfield County District Attorney’s office for consideration for criminal charges once it is complete. An administrative investigation is ongoing. “This situation is unfortunate, but police officers are not above the law,” Chief Brian O’Rourke said. “Officers should be held to a higher standard when it comes to the law and this type of behavior is unacceptable.”

CC)--The Enid Mayor and Board of Commissioners Thursday afternoon were updated on the Kaw Lake Water Pipeline Project to deliver water to Enid. During their study session, commissioners were told that construction officially began recently at the lake’s intake facility in Osage County. Officials with Garney Construction, the project’s construction manager at-risk, said the project begins at the reservoir’s intake station. Around 10 million gallons of water a day will then flow through 70 miles of eight pipeline segments crossing three counties into Garfield County. The water then will move through an intermediate pump station near Garber, then through a water treatment plant in western Enid and a water main along Chestnut.

PA)—Security National Bank of Enid once again will reward five lucky area students for their good grades with the SNB Pays for A’s program. Since 2002, thousands of report cards have been submitted. The bank sponsors the program twice a year, once for spring semester grades and once for fall semester grades. The program is open to students in grades 3 through 12. Public and private school students are encouraged to participate. Students will have until 5:00 p.m. June 18 to take their report cards to any of Security National Bank’s three locations. The bank will make a copy of the report card and place it in a hopper. Four cards will be drawn from the hopper. Those four students will receive $10 for each A and $5 for each B on their spring 2021 semester grades. Individual grades from each nine-week section will not be considered. All students entering their grades will receive a coupon for a frosted drink or milkshake from Chick-fil-A of Enid. In addition to the four students who will be “paid for their A’s,” one card will be drawn from the hopper for a $150 savings account with the bank.
