RISE DEVELOPMENT

  • The Pittsburg City Commission voted last night to allow "Rise Redevelopment" to continue with a proposed condo project.  Those condos would be where another building was demolished at 113 West Fifth Street.  Fifth Street Bar & Grill had proposed an outdoor event center in the same space.  Commissioners will next vote on a development agreement with Rise Development.

MIAMI SHOE STORE FIRE

  • One of the oldest businesses in Miami, Oklahoma has been destroyed in a fire after it was burglarized twice this weekend, and recently vandalized.  Authorities are calling the fire at Ander's Shoe Store suspicious because the back door was unlocked.  They believe the arsonist might have used a stolen key to get inside.

IMMIGRANT RE-UNITING DEADLINE

  • The Justice Department missed last night's deadline for returning immigrant children to their parents.  Around half of the detainees under the age of five were reunited with their families Tuesday.  A federal judge in California refused the government's request for more time, instead urging officials to move more quickly.

NEW TARIFFS

  • The trump administration is getting ready to impose new tariffs on Chinese-made goods.  Last night, the white house trade office released a list of over 6,000 products that it wants to slap a 10% surcharge onto.  Beijing has vowed that it will retaliate to any new tariffs.
