    BRENHAM, Texas (AP) — At least one person has died in Texas and three are missing after torrential thunderstorms caused floods and at least one tornado that closed roads and schools, prompted evacuations, damaged homes and forced dozens of students to spend the night on campus, officials said Friday as they braced for more rain over the Memorial Day weekend. "It's not going to take very much rain to get us in those flood stages again," said Washington County Judge John Brieden. Brieden said that in Washington County, located between Austin and Houston, one person has drowned and another person was missing after their vehicle was swept away.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A new federal study of the potential dangers of cellphone radiation, conducted in rats, found a slight increase in brain tumors in males and raised long-dormant concerns about the safety of spending so much time with cellphones glued to our ears. But the study had enough strange findings that it has caused other federal scientists to highlight flaws in the research, and experts said these findings and those from other studies continue to suggest the potential risk from cellphone radiation is very small. The National Institutes of Health study bombarded rats with cellphone radiation from the womb through the first two years of life for nine hours a day. It found tumors in 2 to 3 percent of male rats, which

  • More Oklahoma cuts necessary after passage of $6.8B budget

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Legislature adjourned Friday after passing a $6.8 billion budget that will require most state agencies to absorb deeper cuts to deal with the remaining shortfall. House Appropriations and Budget Committee Chairman Earl Sears said there would be no further cuts to public K-12 schools and Medicaid provider rates beyond the ones lawmakers approved earlier. However, most other state agencies will have to reduce spending to deal with the remaining $360 million budget gap. The shortage had been $1.3 billion before the Legislature approved various measures to raise revenue. The House voted 52-45 for a bill funding such state services as public safety, education and health for the fiscal year

    BROKEN ARROW — A Tulsa woman was arrested after allegedly taking a cab to a house in Broken Arrow and robbing the driver with a lighter shaped like a gun a half-block away from her destination. Police found Mekhia Dishmon, 19, hiding in a home in the 1400 block of North Umbrella Avenue and took her into custody after a brief struggle early Wednesday, according to an arrest report. She was booked into the Broken Arrow Jail and transferred to the Tulsa Jail two days later on complaints of robbery with a firearm and obstructing police. The victim, who is a driver for multiple cab companies, told police he picked up Dishmon from the house on Umbrella Avenue about 11 p.m. Tuesday and drove her to a Motel 6 in Tulsa. Once there, he said he waited for about 20 minutes before the woman returned to the car and told him to take her back to the house in Broken Arrow, the report states.
