SLIDESHOW: Freezing temps keep many at home Friday
Edmond residents awoke to a winter wonderland and the realities of getting to their vehicles and driving on snow-packed streets. Even though the storm system began moving out of Oklahoma Friday, a state official cautioned residents to not disregard safety measures too soon.
During the coming days, the Edmond area will experience sub-freezing daytime temperatures and nighttime lows in the teens and single digits.
Holiday shipping dates inch closer
This is the time of year for seemingly endless lines for the harried shopper and post office lines are no different.
Fire personnel rescue Edmond youngster
Edmond fire rescue personnel pulled a young sledder buried up to her waist in mud in sub-freezing weather to safety, an official said.
Shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday, fire rescue personnel responded to a trapped victim call at Homestead Boulevard and West Danforth Road, according to the incident report filed by Fire Capt. Euel Davis. Davis stated the victim was sledding down a hill and after reaching the bottom of it became trapped in mud up past her waist.
Davis stated the area appeared to be an old pond that was being dredged, which was not so apparent with snow on the ground.
Inhofe warns of Obama’s disarming of America
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Oklahoma, warned that the capability of the U.S. military is jeopardized by President Barack Obama’s disarming of America.
Inhofe decries Obama judicial selections
President Barack Obama plans to place three new appointees on the D.C. Circuit Court and he has the votes to do it, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe said at a recent visit to the Oklahoma Republican Party State headquarters.
“The first one is this gal Nina Pillard,” Inhofe said. “She is one of the staunchest pro-abortion persons in America. She’s been a pro-abortion leader. She’ll be on the D.C. circuit.”
In November, the Senate Republican blocked a vote on the nomination of Pillard to the D.C. Circuit. Fifty-six senators voted in favor of moving forward with the nomination.
Pillard is a tenured professor at Georgetown University. She is a former deputy assistant attorney general and a former assistant to the solicitor general.
Suspect wears ‘spit hood’ due to actions
A belligerent suspect wore a “spit hood” after he purportedly spat on a female city jail employee, an incident report stated.
During the afternoon of Dec. 4, Edmond Police Officer Mason Long was dispatched to a call about a reported reckless driver traveling west on Danforth from Post Road, Long stated in the report.
Edmond Police Officer Brad Griffin located the vehicle, which had no tire on the rear passenger side, and it was driving with the rim only on the asphalt on Douglas, Long stated. Griffin reported seeing the vehicle travel off the shoulder of the road and then cross the left of center, Long stated.
Griffin initiated a traffic stop and the vehicle pulled over near the 100 block of North Douglas, Long stated.
Icy roads continue to impact schools
The Edmond School District calendar will not be affected if no more than nine days are taken for snow days, said Susan Parks-Schlepp, Edmond’s public information officer.
