For the first time in nearly three decades, cameras will be allowed into an Oklahoma courtroom to cover an entire 1st degree murder trial. An Oklahoma County Judge made the ruling today in the case of Jerome Ersland, a pharmacist who shot and killed a 16-year old would be armed robber. The Oklahoma News Report is part of the media pool that will be providing coverage of the trail. Budget cuts are coming to an Oklahoma institution of higher learning. USAO in Chickasha is cutting salaries, furloughing workers during the holidays and ending annuity payments to try and balance their budget. The I.R.S. is looking for more than 11-hundred Oklahomans who are due refunds but the checks were returned as undeliverable. The checks total more than a million dollars. As an Enid couple was driving home from church along a rural road outside of town, they encountered a site that truly caught them off guard. Standing in the roadway was an elephant. The car and the elephant did collide causing damage to the vehicle and breaking one of the elephants tusks and injuring a leg. The injuries were not believed serious. The mammoth escaped from a nearby Circus company.
