2 Edmond detectives help deliver baby boy
It was a big day for Colin and Dalisha Johnson and two burly Edmond cops. It was an even bigger day for Kingsly Johnson — his birthday.
The Johnson’s baby was due to come into the world Dec. 18, and plans were for labor to be induced Dec. 13, said Colin, sounding like a proud papa as he talked about the day in a room at OU Medical Center-Edmond. Kingsly had other plans.
2 candidates file for Edmond School Board seat
Filing for local school districts’ school board positions ended at 5 p.m. Wednesday with seven candidates filing for five positions. The election will be held Feb. 11.
Candidates for Deer Creek Office 4 Seat and Guthrie Seat No. 3 are running unopposed, while Guthrie Seat No. 4 has two candidates filing as does the Oakdale Seat No. 1.
Cynthia Benson filed for Edmond Seat No. 4 Seat against Stephanie Bills. Bills was appointed by the sitting school board members to fill a position left open when board member George Cohlmia resigned so his daughter could apply for a job in the district.
NWS urges residents to prepare for winter storm
A winter storm warning issued by the National Weather Service includes the Edmond area.
Cities included in the warning, in effect until 6 p.m. Friday, are Guthrie, Edmond, Oklahoma City, Moore, Norman, Chandler, El Reno, Tulsa, Stillwater, McAlester, Ada, Ardmore, Duncan, Shawnee, Lawton, Altus, Clinton and Watonga.
Wednesday morning, the NWS released projected precipitation totals for the state, and a region from Altus to the Oklahoma City metro area including Edmond is in the zone of 3-6 inches of snow and sleet accumulation with locally higher amounts possible.
Areas closest to the north and south of the band should expect to receive up to 2 inches of wintry precipitation. An area southeast of roughly Wichita Falls to Ada should expect to receive a quarter inch to two thirds of an inch of ice accumulation.
Hampden Hollow plat application moves forward
The Edmond Planning Commission agreed 3-0 this week to recommend the preliminary plat and the final plat of the Hampden Hollow III. This plat is east of Air Depot, just under one-half mile north of Covell Road.
“It is the final phase of Hampden Hollow,” said Bob Schiermeyer, city planner.
Applicant J.W. Armstrong proposes 74 single family lots set on 29 acres with city utilities. The lots are 7,200 square feet or larger, Schiermeyer said.
“It’s very consistent with what’s in the area,” Schiermeyer said.
Gated access to private streets will interconnect with existing streets in Hampden Hollow, Schiermeyer said.
The City Council will review the item Dec. 9, said Mark Hoose, commissioner.

Inhofe wants new NDAA bill
Sen. Jim Inhofe shared his thoughts about the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Tuesday at the State Republican Headquarters in Oklahoma City.
Inhofe responded to an audience member’s assertion that the NDAA allows the president to act as a dictator by snatching citizens off the street and detaining them without due process.
“I don’t believe it,” Inhofe said. “…He asked a question and I’m disagreeing with him because something is happening right now and we have to have an NDAA.”
There has always been a reason to oppose an NDAA bill, Inhofe said. The reason this time is that Republicans have said there will not be an NDAA bill unless it includes amendments for the National Security Council as well as Iran sanctions, Inhofe said.

Additional candidate files for Oakdale School Board position

Monday Stephanie Bills filed for the Edmond No. 4 seat while Deer Creek incumbent Danny Barnes filed for the Deer Creek Office 4 Seat and incumbent S. Janna Pierson filed for Guthrie Seat No. 3. Guthrie School Board Seat No. 4 is currently filled by Orville Cornelius but is also up for election.
To be eligible for Edmond’s District 4 seat, a candidate must live in the district, be a registered voter in the district, have a high school diploma or equivalency and not be employed by the district or have immediate family members employed by the district. The same criteria apply for the Deer Creek seat.
3 major projects making progress
Members of the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce got a glimpse of new Edmond developments at Tuesday’s quarterly chamber luncheon.

“We’ve got plans for two more hotels right in front of this complex,” said Davis Hudiburg, investor. The lead investors also include Mike Miller, Rodney Bates and Derek Turner.
The regional hub for youth and adult sports will be an Edmond cornerstone through the 21st century, the investors said.
