TAR CREEK LAWSUIT

  • The campaign for accountability wants to see records of an investigation published, and now the organization is taking legal action.  Back in 2011, the Oklahoma Attorney General requested a special investigation into the Lead-Impacted Communities Relocation Trust.  The CFA says the audit found there was illegal activity, and then the auditor requested the Attorney General to publish what was found. However the Attorney General refused to release that information.

JOPLIN HOUSE FIRE

  • Joplin fire crews responded to a large house fire at 22nd and Bird around 9:30pm last night.  Crews arrived on scene and extinguished the blaze quickly, keeping the flames from spreading to other nearby structures and houses.  No injuries were reported. Today both the State Fire Marshall and the Joplin Fire Department are investigating the cause of the fire.

NORTH KOREA MISSILE

  • North Korea says it has successfully launched a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile.  According to the North's state run media, the missile launched Tuesday from the nation's capital, is capable of reaching all of the United States.  Following the provocation, President Trump warned the United States will take care of it, but did not say how.

TRUMP IN MISSOURI

  • The president travels to Missouri today to push tax reform.  Yesterday, the Senate Budget Committee voted along party lines to advance the republican tax plan to the full senate.  The development came on the same day two top democrats skipped a meeting with President Trump, on ways to avert a government shutdown.

MATT LAUER FIRED

  • NBC News fired longtime "Today" show host Matt Lauer on Wednesday for "inappropriate sexual behavior," making him the second morning television show personality to lose his job because of sexual misconduct charges in a week.  Lauer's co-host Savannah Guthrie made the announcement at the top of Wednesday's "Today" show. Last week, CBS News fired Charlie Rose after complaints from several women who worked for him.
