An initiative to raise awareness about food challenges in Tulsa kicked off today with an event at Tulsa Community College.
Food on the Move is a collaboration involving Iron Gate soup kitchen, the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, Tulsa Health Department and other partners. The idea is to bring food to people who need it.
Food bank director Eileen Bradshaw said a pay-what-you-can food truck event at TCC’s northeast campus was a good first step.
Spring Lake Municipal Complex is one of two developments Sand Springs city officials broke ground on Tuesday morning. The project is west of 129th West Avenue at 46th Street, and it will house the city's public works and maintenance departments.
City leaders in Sand Springs broke ground this morning on two new multimillion dollar developments.
One of the projects is the Spring Lake Municipal Complex off 129th West Avenue at 46th Street. The $7.7 million project is at an old rock quarry, and Mayor Mike Burdge said it will house Sand Springs’ public works and maintenance departments.
"There's some people that own property over there. They weren't too happy about, but, you know, there's just not any place to put something like that," Burdge said. "We didn't have anything that we had that we could use for that."
TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Four people, including two young children, have been shot to death in a Tulsa apartment and authorities say they're investigating the case as a triple murder-suicide. A 2-year-old child was discovered unharmed.
Tulsa police say a 35-year-old man fatally shot his estranged wife, their 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son before shooting himself.
Police say the shootings happened after the wife, who was 22-years-old, dropped off their children at his apartment Monday. She returned later that day with her roommate's 2-year-old daughter.
The University of Tulsa Institute for Trauma, Adversity and Injustice (TITAN) will study the benefits of treating sleep problems and nightmares in tandem with traditional posttraumatic stress disorder therapy.
Nearly 8 million Americans suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder. Psychologists at a local institute believe they’ve found a better way to treat it, and they have backing from the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology in the form of a six-figure grant.
The typical course of treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder involves nine to 12 sessions with a therapist.

Tulsa Federal Credit Union President and CEO Greg Gallant, Tulsa Boys Home Executive Director and CEO Gregg Conway, and race director Heath Aucoin (left) also spoke.
The course for this year’s Tulsa Run is going to look different.
With construction on the Gathering Place starting next month, the Tulsa Run gets off Riverside this year. Runners in the 15K race will go south out of downtown, hit Cherry Street and go through midtown. Race director Heath Aucoin said this course may be more challenging.
Following up on action by the budget board, Tulsa County Commissioners today okay pay hikes for elected leaders, including themselves. The move gives eight county officials a salary boost of more than two thousand dollars annually to $104,498. Only John Smaligo’s deputy on behalf of his boss, voted against the hike. The deputy for Karen Keith and Commission Chairman Ron Peters voted yes. Peters says he feels like the increases are deserved, considering the work load and comparable salaries in the private sector. The pay hikes are retroactive to July 1st.
