Oklahoma’s unemployment rate inched up one tenth of a percent last month. Many of those newly unemployed are showing up in summer classes at colleges and universities across the state. While the parent company of Stillwater National Bank has not yet started to pay back the $70-million it received in TARP money, a spokesman for the bank says the funds have been very valuable by providing loans to local businesses and strengthening the states economy. The public trust overseeing the buyout of residents in the Tar Creek Superfund site violated the Open Meeting Act. That’s the ruling from the state Supreme Court which held that it was improper to let appraisers and others attend executive sessions where appraisals and property purchases were discussed. 200 electric fans were delivered to the Central Oklahoma Salvation Army today, a gift from O G & E. The fans will be passed out to clients who need help fighting off the summer heat. A growing number of Oklahomans find themselves dealing with the financial problems of their aging parents. In-Depth tonight, advice from an expert for those facing such problems.
