• Nuke deal remains elusive after deadline, but talks continue

    Updated: 3 hr ago

    VIENNA (AP) — Negotiators at the Iran nuclear talks pushed past their second deadline in a week on Tuesday, raising new questions about the ability of world powers to cut off all Iranian pathways to a bomb through diplomacy. The discussions, already in their 12th day, were prolonged until possibly Friday. "We knew it would have been difficult, challenging and sometimes hard," said Federica Mogherini, the European Union's foreign policy chief. She said the negotiations would continue despite hitting some "tense" moments, and the U.S. State Department declared the current interim nuclear arrangement with Iran extended through July 10.

    Published: Tue, Jul 7, 2015

    It may be the best of times to be the House speaker and Senate majority leader, but their sinking approval ratings also show that it is the worst of times to be Rep. John Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell. A new Democracy Corps poll finds that the two are seeing their lowest approval ratings in eight years.

  • US job openings stay high, but actual hiring falters in May

    Updated: 3 hr ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Job openings stayed close to a 15-year high in May. It's a sign that companies are expecting continued economic growth, but the level of advertised jobs hasn't driven the same kind of increase in actual hiring. The Labor Department said Tuesday that the number of open jobs rose 0.5 percent to 5.36 million in May. April's total was revised down to 5.33 million from 5.38 million, which had been the highest total during the 15 years that the government has tracked the data The stronger confidence among employers has yet to boost an even stronger level of hiring and pay raises that would fuel faster economic growth.

    FROM STAFF REPORTS | Published: Tue, Jul 7, 2015

    Oklahoma running back Samaje Perine and wide receiver Sterling Shepard, and Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph have been named to the preseason watch list for the Maxwell Award, given annually to college football's player of the year. Perine is coming off a freshman season in which he led the Big 12 in carries (263), rushing yards (1,713) and touchdowns (21) while also setting the NCAA single-game record for rushing yards (427) against Kansas. As a junior, Shepard finished 2014 with 51 receptions, 970 yards and five touchdowns despite battling injuries which forced him to miss three games completely and limited his playing time in three more.

  • Who wins a three-way Big 12 tiebreaker?

    Berry Tramel | Updated: 6 hr ago

    The Big 12 has tried to solve its tiebreaker dilemma by announcing that it no longer will declare co-champions in the event two football teams tie for first place. The winner of their head-to-head meeting will be announced as the champ and presented to the College Football Playoff committee as such. I never thought it was a big deal one way or the other. The committee is not a bunch of dolts, sitting there wondering who is the real champ, and a league’s declaration won’t change that one way or the other. Maybe it’s a procedural matter that lets the committee off the hook so that it can make a Sophie’s choice — Baylor or TCU? TCU or Baylor? Oh, the league says Baylor, so we’ll go Baylor —

  • Arkansas woman takes plea deal in slain realtor case

    Updated: 4 hr ago

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A woman charged in the kidnapping and killing of an Arkansas real estate agent has pleaded guilty to reduced charges in exchange for agreeing to testify against her estranged husband, who also is charged in the death. Crystal Lowery was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Tuesday after pleading guilty to first-degree murder and kidnapping charges in the death of 50-year-old Beverly Carter. Carter disappeared in September after leaving to show a house in a rural area east of Little Rock. The 41-year-old Lowery was initially charged with capital murder. A deputy prosecutor says the charge was reduced after Lowery agreed to testify against her husband, Arron Lewis, who has pleaded not guilty to capital

  • Post-holiday gasoline price slide continues in Oklahoma

    Updated: 4 hr ago

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Gasoline prices are falling in Oklahoma following the long July 4 holiday weekend. AAA Oklahoma said Tuesday that the statewide average for a gallon of regular gasoline was about $2.55, down about 1 cent from last week. The average price last year at this time was about $3.48 per gallon.

Despite declining gasoline prices, AAA says the direction of pump prices in the near term is less than certain.

  • Legislators push proposed amendment to Oklahoma Constitution to allow Ten Commandments monument

    Published: Tue, Jul 7, 2015

    OKLAHOMA CITY — A Yukon lawmaker filed legislation Monday to remove the section of the state constitution cited by the Oklahoma Supreme Court when it  ordered a Ten Commandments monument removed  from the state Capitol grounds. State Rep. John Paul Jordan, R-Yukon, called the section barring the use of state assets for religious purposes “toxic” and a “malignant tumor” that “needs to be removed completely” from the state constitution. “It could possibly lead to the Native American artwork in the Capitol and state Supreme Court buildings being removed, as much of it is religious in nature,” Jordan said. “It could lead to individuals on state-funded insurance programs being unable to receive medical care as a large portion of hospitals in Oklahoma are supported by a religious affiliation.”

  • North Carolina church to fly Christian flag over American flag

    Published: Tue, Jul 7, 2015

    SHELBY, NC (WBTV) - In Cleveland County, Old Glory flies high. From shops, to homes, to houses of worship - the red, white and blue can be spotted on every street corner. But this Fourth of July weekend, one Shelby flag pole will be reassessing its priorities. On Sunday, Pastor Rit Varriale will raise the Christian flag above the American flag in front of Elizabeth Baptist Church. "Our typical flag etiquette is to have the American flag above the Christian flag. But when you stop and think about it, it should be our commitment to God first, then our commitment to country," Varriale said.
