“We will never forget” Oklahomans gather to remember 19 years after bombing

Our state will pause to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever on the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing this weekend.

Oklahomans will never forget the day 19 years ago, April 19, 1995.

Before the anniversary is marked Saturday, volunteers are preparing their own tribute Friday.

Oklahoma Christian University students and staff are posting 168 Oklahoma and U.S. flags on the school’s front lawn.

The “Ralph and Maxine Harvey Field of Flags” is a dual tribute to those affected by the bombing of the Murrah federal building 19 years ago and to those in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Oklahoma Christian is also one of the only sites in the world to have Survivor Trees grown from seeds from the Survivor Tree at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.

UPDATE: State Superintendent Barresi responds to “no confidence” petition

UPDATE: Janet Barresi’s campaign is responding to the “no confidence” petition.

The campaign released the following statement:

“The fact that those guarding their own kingdoms are against the state’s leading reform advocate is not a surprise. This same group literally turned their backs on Janet when she first went to speak to them before the 2010 elections.  

These are the same people who opposed Janet in 2010, who constituted the 18% who supported SQ 744 in 2010, who have sued parents for seeking opportunities for their special needs children and who have controlled education in Oklahoma for all but the last three years.

Local food bank seeks volunteers to help sort food for hungry Oklahomans

OKLAHOMA CITY – A local food bank is seeking volunteers to help feed hungry Oklahomans.

The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma seeks hundreds of volunteers to help sort canned food donations from the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive on Saturday, May 10 at metro-area post office sites.

“More than 500 volunteers are needed to help sort food donations we will receive in the metro-area on May 10,” said Denice Hurlbut, associate director of volunteerism at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.  “By sorting the food on site as the letter carriers bring it in from their routes, we can get it into the homes of those who need it that much faster.”

As part of the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive, residents in more than 120 cities in central and western Oklahoma are encouraged to fill a plastic bag with canned food donations and leave it next to their mailbox on Saturday, May 10th. Letter Carriers will deliver the donation bags the week of May 5th.
