The U.S. Supreme court let stand a lower court ruling that the monument violated separation of church and state. A one year old boy is now in a Tulsa hospital being testing for meningitis. The child was moved from a hospital in Claremore but it is not yet clear if the case is related to an outbreak in the Oologah-Talala public schools.

Questions we answer tonight in our special Sunshine Week series on openness in government.
