A big music and arts festival will be held in downtown Tulsa this weekend. Thousands are expected to attend the second annual Center of the Universe Festival which features more than a hundred bands over two days in the Brady Arts District. Co-Founder Phil Kaiser says a portion of the proceeds will go back into the community. Also some of the proceeds will go to the Red Dirt Relief Fund, a non-profit that benefits Oklahoma music artists in times of need.
The 31st National Night Out, celebrated across the nation, will be held at Hicks Park this year in Tulsa. The national movement is way for the community to gather in an area and discuss crime and other issues. The police and fire departments, EMSA, and other first responders will be there to chat with people as well.
Program Coordinator, Bart Dean, says there will also be non-profit organizations there to talk with the community.
Tulsa's next traffic bottleneck will be Riverside Drive. The City held a meeting last night to detail how the construction of 'A Gathering Place for Tulsa' will impact Riverside Drive.
There will be lane shifts and closures, and this time next year the entire roadway will be closed near the Pedestrian Bridge. That means drivers will have to find new routes into and out of downtown Tulsa.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A state legislator who is one of two doctors in the Oklahoma Legislature says state officials are ignoring his request that unaccompanied immigrant minors being housed at Fort Sill be quarantined.
Republican state Rep. Mike Ritze of Broken Arrow said Tuesday he's received no response from Gov. Mary Fallin, Attorney General Scott Pruitt and Commissioner of Health Terry Cline to a letter Ritze sent them last week requesting the quarantined.
